Duke may retire coal units at Buck Putting in ‘scrubbers’ to reduce pollutants may prove too costly BY EMILY FORD

Rather than installing equipment needed to meet new pollution controls, Duke Energy might close two coal-fired units at Buck Steam Station by 2015. The Buck plant is a four-unit coal-fired generating station located on the Yadkin River in Rowan County. In an annual planning document filed Wednesday with the N.C. Utilities Commission, Duke said it might shut down seven units in North and South Carolina as new federal environmental regulations go into effect over the next five years. Duke will face tougher limits on pollutants that form smog and acid rain. Refitting old coal-fired plants with sulfur-dioxide controls called “scrubbers” could prove to be cost-prohibitive. If the company determines it is not economically feasible to install scrubbers, Duke will retire the units, spokesperson Jason Walls said. Walls said he didn’t know when the company would make a final decision about closing the Buck units, but “now that it’s part of this planning document, we are moving in that direction,” he said. The units, 5 and 6, already were slated to close as part of an agreement where Duke received a state permit to build a new 825-megawatt unit in Rutherford County in exchange for retiring 800 megawatts of older units. But faced with upcoming emission control requirements, the company’s new strategy would hasten the retirement at Buck, Walls said. It is not clear how many jobs would be affected. “It’s too early to tell what type of employment changes would result,” he said. Duke is scheduled to open a new natural-gas fueled combustion turbine unit next year at Buck, which currently has three other gas-fired units. Displaced employees might find work at the new unit or at other plants, he said. “We could reallocate some jobs in our own company,” Walls said. Walls said he doesn’t know how many people work at Buck. The plant was Duke Energy’s first large capacity coal generating plant built in the Carolinas and was named for the company’s co-founder, James Buchanan “Buck” Duke. The Buck station has been in operation since 1926. The company is also considering shuttering units at the Riverbend plant in Gaston County and Lee plant in Anderson County, S.C.

The Rev. Neal Brower holds up a letter jacket from the fictitious high school mentioned in ‘The Andy Griffith Show.’ Brower, a Methodist minister and expert on the show, recently moved Kannapolis to pastor Jackson Park United Methodist Church.

Kannapolis pastor a longtime fan, scholar of ‘The Andy Griffith Show’ K

ANNAPOLIS — When the Rev. Neal Brower isn’t writing a sermon, leading a church service, visiting the hospital or counseling his congregation, he follows another calling. A Mayberry ministry. Brower, the new pastor at Jackson Park United Methodist Church, carries an encyclopedic knowledge of television’s “The Andy Griffith Show.” His lectures and writings have earned him the unofficial title of “Professor Brower” among show aficionados. During this month’s Mayberry Days in Mount Airy, he will again give a lecture at the Downtown MARK Cinema Theater. WINEKA About 25 times in eight different community colleges across the region, Brower has taught a 10-week, scholarly course on “The Andy Griffith Show” and how it relates to N.C. history, Southern culture, television writing and production.

Brower points out signatures of cast members and others connected with ‘The Andy Griffith Show’ on a chair at his house. He wrote ‘Mayberry 101’ and taught community college classes on the show that first aired Oct. 3, 1960.

But that’s not all. A dozen years ago, Brower wrote a book, “Mayberry 101,” which remains in print and has sold some 22,000 copies since its debut. He also put together successful Mayberry Reunions in 1990 in Charlotte and 1995 in Winston-Salem. The first one attracted 10 former cast

members; the second, 20. This fall marks the 50th anniversary of the homespun comedy’s first episode, which aired on CBS Oct. 3, 1960. Characters such as Sheriff Andy Taylor, Deputy Barney Fife,

Don’t fall prey to unlicensed locksmiths’ ploys BY KARISSA MINN

A network of unlicensed locksmiths fined by the state this week may not have operated in Rowan County, but one local locksmith said residents here still need to know how to spot a scam. Steve Stroud, president of Tarheel Safe and Lock in China Grove, said people should check with the N.C. Locksmith Board to see if a person is licensed before hiring him or her. “My concern is that the general public don’t understand that you have to be licensed to be a locksmith,” Stroud said. “They just assume that if he’s in the Yellow Pages, he’s a locksmith, and that’s not the case.” He said a Google search for Salisbury locksmiths turns up some listings with Rowan County addresses where Stroud says no locksmith businesses exist.

In an Aug. 31 press release, the office of N.C. Attorney General Roy Cooper said Anna Konevsky and Tamir Avraham, both of Charlotte, operated a network of unlicensed locksmith businesses, including 704 Locksmith Inc., N.C. Charlotte Locksmith and Locksmith Services Inc. The two were fined more than $1 million and banned from offering locksmith services in the state. The attorney general’s office said the companies do not employ licensed locksmiths but have advertised and performed locksmith services anyway. They operated in several North Carolina counties, including Cabarrus under the name Concord Locksmith. None of the businesses named by the attorney general appear to have offered services in Rowan County. According to a Charlotte Observer article, the companies used out-of-state call centers and advertised on the Internet and in the Yellow Pages under local addresses. The Observer reported they often charged

customers far more than their quoted rates — and in at least one case, threatened a customer with arrest if she wouldn’t pay double the original rate. Even if their prices and practices are fair, Stroud said, unlicensed locksmiths can cause damage by performing services they aren’t trained to do. “You might have a neighbor do your plumbing, but that don’t mean he’s going to do it right,” he said. Stroud said licensed locksmiths are required to go through 24 hours of continuing education and training every two years. “They try to make sure that when a locksmith comes to your door, he knows what he’s doing, and he’s from a reputable company that’s not going to rip you off,” he said.

Authorities say the attempted theft of copper tubing Sunday from the roof of the future PetSmart store off Faith Road marked the second such crime in two weeks. And Salisbury’s deputy police chief said those thefts haven’t been isolated to Rowan County. “This appears to be a trend in the Southeast,” Deputy Chief Steve Whitley said. He noted Charlotte has a severe copper theft problem. Officers charged a Charlotte man who they found Sunday night on the PetSmart roof with $10,000 worth of copper tubing stripped from air-conditioning units, a police report said. The culprits from the earlier crime — at the Wallace Commons shopping center off Julian Road — got away. But investigators suspect they, too, came from outside Salisbury. “Typically, they’re not by local hoodlums, but people who roam,” Whitley said. Whitley said some “copper ninjas” maneuvered their way onto the rooftop of the Kohl’s department store at Wallace Commons sometime Aug. 14 or 15. Employees of the stores in the shopping center called owner Collett and Associates when they realized the stores felt warmer than they should. When the owners climbed onto the roof, they discovered someone had stripped the air-conditioning

Reports on housing, manufacturing, jobs boost stock market NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks rose Thursday, extending their gains from the day before, after reports on housing, manufacturing and jobs all indicated that the economy continues to grow. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 50 points, having jumped 254 on Wednesday thanks to strong reports on manufacturing in the U.S. and China. Broader indexes also rose. Trading was somewhat muted ahead of the government’s closely watched monthly report on employment due out Friday. “We’re treading water,” said Dan Genter, CEO of RNC Genter Capital. Traders are waiting to see if Friday’s jobs data “provides more of a rescue or a shark attack.” The monthly report is likely to provide further evidence that the jobs market remains weak. Economists polled by Thomson Reuters predict the unemployment rate inched up to 9.6 percent last month from 9.5 percent in July as private employers hired just 41,000 workers last month. With little broad conviction about the health of the economy, investors chose to target specific stocks following monthly retail sales reports and the latest acquisition activity. “It’s a trader’s market,” said Kenneth Polcari, managing director at ICAP Equities. Burger King Holdings Inc. and data storage provider 3Par Inc. both rose after agreeing to be acquired. Limited Brands Inc., which operates Victoria’s Secret and Bath & Body Works, got a lift from strong August sales.

The Dow Jones industrial average rose 50.63, or 0.5 percent, to close at 10,320.10. Broader indexes also rose. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 9.81, or 0.9 percent, to 1,090.10, while the Nasdaq composite index rose 23.17, or 1.1 percent, to 2,200.01. The Labor Department said first-time claims for unemployment benefits fell slightly last week, but remain well above levels that indicate a healthy economy. Claims dipped for the second straight week. They fell slightly below the level economists had forecast, which was somewhat encouraging ahead of Friday’s monthly employment report. The number of buyers who signed contracts to purchase homes rose 5.2 percent in July after hitting a record low in June, according to the National Association of Realtors. Sales plummeted in the months following the expiration of the government’s home buyer tax credit in April and economists were expecting that trend to continue for a third straight month. Factory orders also climbed, rising 0.1 percent in July. The rise in orders backs up a report Wednesday showing the manufacturing sector continues to expand. Major indexes jumped more than 2 percent Wednesday after a surprising rise in manufacturing activity. Shares of 3Par rose 79 cents, or 2.5 percent, to $32.87 after Hewlett-Packard Co. won a bidding war for the data storage provider. HewlettPackard raised its bid to $33 per share after competitor Dell Inc. offered $32 per share.

BUXTON (AP) — The last ferry left for the mainland and coastal residents hunkered down at home as Hurricane Earl closed in with 110 mph winds Thursday on North Carolina’s dangerously exposed Outer Banks, the first and potentially most destructive stop on the storm’s projected journey up the Eastern Seaboard. The hurricane’s outer squalls began to lash the long ribbon of barrier islands Salisbury Thursday couple decides night. Gusts against riding above 40 the storm mph made out, 4A signs shake and the heavy rain fall sideways in Buxton, the southeasternmost tip of the Outer Banks. Hurricane Earl’s winds were slowing, from 140 mph early Thursday to 110 mph, Category 2 strength, by 8 p.m. But forecasters warned that it remained powerful, with hurricane-force winds of 74 mph or more extending 70 miles from its center and tropical storm-force winds of at least 35 mph reaching more than 200 miles out. “It’s interesting to me to just see what Mother Nature can do,” said Jay Lopez, 36, of Frisco, as the wind howled through Buxton. National Weather Service meteorologist Hal Austin said the eye of the hurricane was expected to get as close as 55 miles east of the Outer Banks overnight. The coast is expected to be lashed by hurricane-force winds for a couple of hours with a storm surge of up to 5 feet and waves 18 feet high. “It’s spitting rain. It’s probably going to get a little hairy. We’re prepared for it. My biggest concern is the ocean, not the wind,”

Waves from Hurricane earl batter the already storm-damaged Frisco pier on thursday.

“The storm won’t be as strong, but they spread out as they go north and the rain will be spreading.” BILL READ director of the National Hurricane Center

said Karen Denson Miller, who decided to stay on Hatteras Island with friends. Earl’s arrival could mark the start of at least 24 hours of stormy, windy weather along the East Coast. During its march up the Atlantic, it could snarl travelers’ Labor Day weekend plans and strike a second forceful blow to the vacation homes and cottages on Long Island, Nantucket Island and Cape Cod. Forecast models showed the most likely place Earl will make landfall is western Nova Scotia, Canada, where it could still be a hurricane, said hurricane center deputy director Ed Rappaport. It was unclear exactly how close Earl’s center and its strongest winds would get to land. Massachusetts Gov. Deval

Patrick and Rhode Island Gov. Donald Carcieri declared a state of emergency. Similar declarations have also made in North Carolina, Virginia and Maryland. As of Thursday afternoon, though, the only evacuations ordered were on the Outer Banks, which sticks out into the Atlantic Ocean like the side-view mirror on a car, vulnerable to a sideswiping. About 35,000 tourists and residents were urged to leave. A slow winding down was expected to continue as the storm moved into cooler waters, but forecasters warned the size of the storm’s wind field was increasing, similar to what happened when Hurricane Katrina approached the Gulf Coast five years ago. “It will be bigger. The storm won’t be as strong, but

they spread out as they go north and the rain will be spreading from New England,” National Hurricane Center Director Bill Read said. In North Carolina, the end of an already dilapidated wooden pier in Frisco, one of the villages on Hatteras Island, collapsed after being battered by high surf. It had been closed to the public because of past storm damage. “It’s kind of nerve-racking, but I’ve been through this before,” said 65-year-old Herma De Gier, who has lived in the village of Avon since 1984. De Gier said she will ride out the storm at a neighbor’s house but wants to be close enough to her own property so she can quickly deal with any damage. Forecasters said that after Earl passes the Outer Banks, a kink in the jetstream should push the storm away from the coast. Earl is expected to move north-northeast, staying away from New Jersey and the other mid-Atlantic states, but also passing very close to Long Island, Cape Cod and Nantucket, which could get gusts up to 100 mph.

Governor says those who stayed put are on their own RALEIGH (AP) — Gov. Beverly Perdue says residents who choose to stay on North Carolina’s barrier islands are likely on their own should they need immediate help when Hurricane Earl arrives. Perdue said Thursday afternoon that government officials won’t put emergency responders in harm’s way as the brunt of the storm reaches land overnight. She said some people still had a few hours to leave if they’re worried they may have trouble. Others have run out of time. About 1,600 people had been evacuated from Ocracoke Island before the last ferry left Thursday afternoon. Perdue said residents along the coast had known for 36 hours that evacuations were advised. The governor is still hopeful tourists will be able to enjoy the Labor Day weekend at the coast once the storm leaves. Shelters were open in inland North Carolina, and officials on Nantucket Island, Mass., planned to set up a

AAA’s Leisure Travel Index reports the lowest roundtrip rates moving up 9 percent from last year to $179 for the top 40 U.S. air routes. Travelers flying to destinations along the East Coast should check their flight status before leaving for the airport. Tropical weather may impact flight routes. AAA also recommends checking with your hotel for local updates on the storm’s impact. The remaining 3 percent, or 28,000 travelers, will journey by bus, train or boat, according to surveys prepared by IHS Global Insight on behalf of AAA. The average gallon of regular unleaded gasoline in North Carolina is $2.58, down 3 cents from a week ago and only 6 cents higher than this time last year.

Gas prices fell in August, helping AAA Carolinas to forecast an 8.1 percent increase in Labor Day travel. An estimated 70,000 more motorists are expected to vacation more than 50 miles from home this holiday than last year.

Missing man found

FRIDAY September 3, 2010



A 76-year-old Salisbury man reported missing early Wednesday reunited with his family Thursday after being located in eastern North Carolina, authorities say. The N.C. Highway Patrol stopped James Michael Carmichael for a burned-out taillight in Roanoke Rapids late Wednesday or early Thursday, said Lt. Frank Young with the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office. Young didn’t know the exact time a trooper stopped Carmichael. The state canceled a Silver Alert for him at 12:25 CARMICHAEL a.m. The state issued the alert Wednesday morning after family and friends lost contact with Carmichael. He had visited a friend in Lexington and left for Independence, Va., to pick up his wife and return to North Carolina. Independence, Va., lies northwest of Lexington. Roanoke Rapids is east. Carmichael’s son, David Carmichael, told the Post on Wednesday that his father suffers shortterm memory loss. When stopped in his Ford Escape, he “was able to answer questions” asked by the state trooper, Young said. “The trooper said he was fine and the family was notified,” he said. Carmichael’s family could not be reached by telephone Thursday.

Police arrest man for sexual assault Authorities have charged a Salisbury man with sexually assaulting a child. Kervin Humberto Velase Carbayal, 18, of 1100 W. Fisher St., remained in the Rowan County jail Thursday night under $100,000 bond on a charge of first-degree sex offense with a victim younger than 13. The Salisbury Police Department said there was sufficient CARBAYAL evidence to warrant Carbayal’s arrest Wednesday evening; the investigation continues.

Norvells head back home Couple decides not to face Earl’s wrath BY SHELLEY SMITH

A Salisbury couple changed their mind about riding out Hurricane Earl on Ocracoke Island when the storm increased in intensity from a Category 3 to a Category 4. And this time, they made sure their cat didn’t hold them back. Ed and Susan Norvell had been packed and ready to leave as authorities issued a mandatory evacuation notice Wednesday. But they decided to stay on Ocracoke through the storm after their cat Harley went missing for hours. But Wednesday night’s update convinced them to leave the barrier island on the Outer Banks. “It was a Category 4, 140 mph winds, and was going to hit off the Ocracoke coastline less than 50 miles away,” Susan Norvell said. “With it being that close, we were in the stronger part of that storm, and we didn’t feel comfortable staying. ... It’s just not worth staying down there.”

Marijuana plant found on porch Authorities say a Salisbury man who called for their help locating a missing dog apparently forgot what else they might find at his house — a pot plant sitting on his front porch. Now Justin Gray Morgan, 23, of 1016 Denmark Drive, is charged with manufacturing a controlled substance, manufacturing with intent to sell or deliver and possession of drug paraphernalia. Authorities arrested Morgan on Tuesday, though he initially called them about his dog in May. According to a Rowan County Sheriff’s Office report, Morgan called to report his dog missing. When deputies went to Morgan’s house, they found what they believed to be a marijuana plant growing in a pot on his front porch. The Sheriff’s Office sent the plant and other paraphernalia found inside the home to the N.C. State Bureau of Investigation lab. The SBI notified Rowan investigators Aug. 13 that the plant was marijuana. The Sheriff’s Office drew warrants and charged him after Landis Police officers stopped Morgan on a traffic violation Tuesday. He received a $500 bond.

Main Street United Methodist Church donated rooms to house a clothing boutique for the One Church One Child program, which is a DSS outreach program for children who receive services from the agency.

Program opens clothing boutique for children served by DSS BY SHAVONNE POTTS

The One Church One Child program will soon open a clothing boutique for children served by the Rowan County Department of Social Services. The boutique will be located at the back of Main Street United Methodist Church. The program is an outreach ministry/mission between Social Services and local churches that identifies and supports families in congregations who are interested in becoming foster and/or adoptive parents. The program also helps meet the needs of children served by Social Services, whether in foster care, child protective services, adoption services or children in social services’ custody who have open and active cases. There are 43 churches that participate in the program. These churches sponsor families receiving assistance by providing clothing, toys, school supplies, as well as raise money for emergency funds that could include dental needs, glasses, tutoring or summer camps. The churches also donate gifts and host parties for Christmas and birthdays. The program recently distributed school supplies. The unofficial clothing boutique began with Milford Hills Methodist, which holds a clothing consignment sale two times

a year and donates the leftover clothes to the program, explained coordinator Jon Hunter. “We always get two truck loads of stuff,” he said. The program had been collecting clothing and other items and storing them in the DSS office building at East Innes Street and at the Crawford building at North Main Street. The boutique was definitely a collective effort from a group of churches. Main Street United Methodist Church offered a space it hadn’t used in quite some time. The space used to be classrooms, but sat empty, said the Rev. Annalee Allen, pastor of Main Street United Methodist. Allen is also pastor of Park Avenue United Methodist and Coburn Memorial, which are part the Downtown Salisbury Cooperative Parish, along with Main Street United Methodist. “We’re organized to be in ministry purposely to have a larger reach to the community,” she said. Volunteers at Bethel United Methodist Church sorted the clothes and other items. Volunteers at Milford Hills Methodist retiled the upstairs and two men, Ed James and Dennis Hinz, donated their time to put in new flooring and paint, Hunter said. “The floor work is almost complete,” he said.

Jon Hunter, program coordinator of One Church One Child, sifts through items. Another volunteer, Gary Emerson, helped to remove the old floor. His nephew even worked some while on military leave from Iraq. Volunteer Jack Kepley of Coburn built the clothing racks. In the past when

someone needed clothes they sifted through labeled bins. Coburn Memorial provided money and materials. The work has been going on since April,


Kannapolis awaits decision on TIF bond rating B Y E MILY F ORD

KANNAPOLIS — Perhaps no news is good news. That’s what Kannapolis city officials are hoping as they await word on whether an agency will rate unique bonds designed to pay for improvements at the N.C. Research Campus. Standard & Poor’s visited the Research Campus July 6 to consider assigning an investment grade rating to $30 million in tax increment bonds, or TIF bonds. City officials expected an an-

swer within two weeks. They’re still waiting. “Actually I doubt it has much to do with us,” City Manager Mike Legg said in an e-mail. “I just think they were too optimistic with us about time frame...Our TIF is a more complex decision than most they encounter.” While agencies regularly rate other instruments like general obligation bonds, rating a TIF bond would be unprecedented. They are considered among the riskiest types of municipal debt, risk that Legg says in Kannapolis’ case has been

mitigated. The city will hold a conference call today with Standard & Poor’s. Legg said he does not expect a decision today but perhaps by next week. If the city can’t obtain at least a triple-B rating, the interest rate would be too high to issue the bonds. The Research Campus is the brainchild of Dole Food Co. chairman David Murdock. The stalled bonds would reimburse Murdock’s development company, Castle & Cooke, and the city for millions of dollars in upfront

expenses, as well as pay for infrastructure improvements and a new public health department. In an unusual arrangement, Kannapolis received the state’s blessing to tout North Carolina’s obligation to the Research Campus as a way to earn a TIF bond rating. The state leases from Murdock two large public university research buildings at the campus, as well as a biotech training center for RowanCabarrus Community College.

Time stands still Clock on the Square to get new cables BY MARK WINEKA

Time will be standing still on the Square for awhile. Salisbury’s Public Services Division is replacing cables inside the 1914 clock on the Square, so don’t depend on it for time until the repairs are completed. The clock rises about 15 feet and stands on the Square’s southwest corner next to OK Wig. A crane set the cast-iron timepiece there in late 1978, and it was formally dedicated Dec. 30 of that year. When the clock is working, a city worker from the Public Services Division winds the clock on the Square every Wednesday morning. He employs a small, Zshaped handle to give it a good 14 or 15 cranks, pulling two weights up from the floor of the clock’s base to a position that will keep things running for a week or so.

Some adjustments also are made from below to reset the hands on the clock to the correct time, if required. The pendulum is set in motion again, and the base is locked up until the next winding. Jeweler Norman Ingle, now deceased, donated the clock to the city. The clock came to Salisbury from Winston-Salem. For years, it stood on Trade Street in Winston-Salem in front of Fred Day’s jewelry store. Day died in 1949. When his surviving family members decided to move the store in 1954, they discovered that city codes would not allow the relocation of the clock to their new spot. Ingle paid the Days $140 for the clock and moved it to Salisbury. The Ingles kept it in front of Evelyn Ingle's gift shop at West Innes Street and Link Avenue until its move to the Square.

HOME FROM 4a So the Norvells packed up their car again and — along with Harley, their other two cats and their daughter’s two ferrets — took the 6:30 a.m. ferry to Swan Quarter Thursday morning. They took the first of only two trips the ferries made Thursday. The Norvells said the ride was choppy at first, but got smoother as they headed west. “You could see a band of clouds,” Susan said. The Norvells said their goodbyes to their friends Wednesday night, telling them they didn’t feel safe staying on the island. Their friends said Earl wouldn’t be as bad as everyone thought.

CHILD FROM 4a Hunter said. The Salisbury District of United Methodist Churches provided a grant for the electric and renovation costs. He said it’s not just Methodist churches that are helping but other denominations as well that have donated time and materials. The boutique doesn’t have an official name at this time. It will be open a couple of days per week. “We are in the starting process,” Hunter said. Members of the advisory board will decide on a name, opening date and other details. The goal is sometime in the next month or so. There are 22 members who sit on the advisory board, which consists of social workers and managers, pastors and community representatives. The members serve two terms. The board decides poli-

Some they know, though, stayed on the island. “They have lived there for many years,” Susan said. “Some have been there for generations. They’re used to these storms. If there is such a thing as getting used to it.” Contact Shelley Smith at 704-797-4246.

cies, screens requests from social workers and recruit new member churches. “My belief as a pastor is if we are grouped to serve God then we are to serve people,” Allen said. She said serving comes down to the simplest of needs. Right now that need is to move the clothes from the bins and place them on racks. “We are just very appreciative of the Main Street church for volunteering to assist us with this clothing ministry. We look forward to the opening and send thanks to the volunteers and Mr. Hunter in their concentrated effort in moving this forward,” said Tom Brewer, program administrator for children’s services. The program has helped 691 children since the program began in January 2007. For more information about the One Church One Child program, contact rococ or Jon Hunter at 704216-7914.

Woman found months after death; son charged BURLINGTON (AP) — A North Carolina man is in jail after investigators say he hid the death of his elderly mother for months until a maintenance worker discovered the corpse on her couch. Multiple media organizations reported 50-year-old Don Lee Wade is charged with concealing the death of his 94-year-old mother Lucy Mae Wade. A worker at the Alamance County jail said Thursday that Wade was being held under $10,000 bond and there is no record he has an attorney. The body was discovered last week. An autopsy indicated she died from natural causes about six months ago. Neighbors and staffers at the Burlington Housing Authority say Wade told them his mother broke her hip and was staying with his sister while she recovered.

NC-based Marine from Idaho dies in Afghanistan CAMP LEJEUNE (AP) — A North Carolina-based Marine from Idaho has been killed in Afghanistan.

Roberts was assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division based at Camp Lejeune.

Gov. C.L. “Butch� Otter extended his condolences to Roberts’ family, which has asked for privacy. “He was among those heroes who are putting their lives on the line every day to keep the nightmare of terrorism at arm’s length from the rest of us,� Otter said in a statement. “His sacrifice should be remembered and his loss mourned by every Idahoan.�

Dove hunting season won’t be affected by Earl RALEIGH (AP) — The start of North Carolina’s dove hunting season won’t be hindered by the state of emergency called by Gov. Beverly Perdue for Hurri-

But the commission said Perdue’s executive order for Earl didn’t cite any such restrictions, so everything’s a go for Saturday. The commission urged hunters at the coast to keep up with Earl to ensure safe conditions.

Two takes on Glenn Beck

Two-legged diners only udging from initial responses to the Salisbury Post’s current online poll, restaurants that decide to allow dogs and cats into their outdoor dining areas are in for a lot of whining. And that’s just from the two-legged patrons. Effective this week, the N.C. Department of Environment and Natural Resources ruled that restaurants can let Fido and Fluffy enjoy an al fresco meal with their masters, providing the pets are properly restrained. The outdoor area has to be accessible without animals passing through the indoor dining area, and the pets can’t come in contact with the food or the food preparers. We asked readers for their opinion, and the results thus far are running heavily against dining with pets. Here’s what “kripit3” had to say about the rule change: “Even with leashes, I can predict dog fights, fleas, territory marking and worst of all, begging puppy dog eyes. The latter may actually be the only positive thing by bringing extra revenue to restaurants who get smart and offer a dog friendly menu:)” felinevivisector had a similar snarl: “I can see no good coming out of dogs at sidewalk cafes. What a stupid idea. And not very appetizing, either. I would not patronize such an establishment.” At first blush, the change sounds like a sweet idea. Pets are our faithful companions, wherever we go. Many pet owners allow their dogs and cats to be underfoot, or under the table, during family meals at home. Some dogs are even taught to sit up and beg for a table scrap or two. Opening up a restaurant patio or deck to pets might seem a harmless extension of the practice. But let’s face it. When it comes to our casual home dining, the standards can be pretty relaxed. No shoes or no shirt? No problem, especially when it’s a summer cookout by the pool. Family dogs and cats are welcome. Restaurant patrons, however, expect a bit more decorum — and less drooling. Even if patio pets are all well-behaved, you have to wonder how diners will take to having a strange Doberman or bulldog hungrily eyeing each bite of steak as it moves from plate to mouth. And what would a restaurant’s potential liability be if a dog takes a nip at a nearby diner? Individual restaurants will have to decide how to handle this issue. As with the smoking ban, it will no doubt spur dinnertable debates. In fact, the smoking dilemma may point to a possible compromise. Perhaps restaurants will divide their outdoor eating areas into two sections. Instead of smoking or non-smoking, greeters will be asking “paws — or people only?”


Common sense

(Or uncommon wisdom, as the case may be)

“I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love. For me they are the role model for being alive.” — Gilda Radner

ox TV commentator Glenn Beck turned out to be more nearly Billy Graham than a rant-and-rave, political eye-gouger in his estimated 300,000-strong, massive Washington rally, and that must pain leftist commentators, because, I mean, how could he let them down? They expected the worst. They wanted the worst. They had set the JAY for an outAMBROSE table raged reaction, as in a pre-rally commentary by Dana Milbank, a Washington Post columnist. He reviewed what seemed just about every goof Beck had ever made, even including a Pelosi-like slip of the tongue when he once said “17th century” when he should have said 19th. Oh, and he once imitated an Asian accent and — here we finally get to something seriously amiss — he has called President Obama a racist. For that last stupidity, he has apologized, though he still seems a work in progress, growing gradually less klutzy and more formidable in his understandings while remarkably performing welcome tasks. One of them has been to expose weirdo extremists bouncing crazily about in the Obama administration, and here is another: promoting “The Road to Serfdom,” Friedrich Hayek’s trenchant 1944 analysis of how a democratic government’s coercively empowered central planners can enslave us while happily supposing they are serving our most cherished values. Highly pertinent to this hour, the book is suddenly a best seller, and Beck deserves thanks for an educational triumph. Milbank’s not impressed, I guess. He was particularly perturbed that the Beck rally was taking place not just on the same date as the 47th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s “I have a dream” speech, but also at the same

the ‘restoring Honor’ rally drew a crowd of 300,000. place, the Lincoln Memorial. A similarly miffed Rev. Al Sharpton conducted a D.C. counter-rally, typically mischaracterizing the Beck rally as disgracing the day. Beck explained the timing was an accident, adding that King was an American hero who did BECK not belong only to blacks, but to all of us. He then went on to suggest the rally would be about civil rights, and there were some speeches along those lines, including one saying we’re all one race, the human race. It was given by the angelic Alveda King, a niece of Dr. King’s. And yet the rally was mainly about coming back to what’s best in us, honoring our soldiers and veterans and the goodness of America and turning to commitment to godly values for rescue from our problems and lapses. It was an evangelical moment, though one reaching out to all religions. Was a lack of political fireworks a disappointment to those there? Maybe to some, but it seemed that the positive content and uplifting tone were pretty much what the crowd wanted. Every descrip-

tion I read said those on hand were friendly and cheerful. About as close as anyone got to political invective was Sarah Palin’s essentially innocuous knock on Obama’s self-revelatory pre-election promise to “fundamentally change” the United States of America, as if there were something fundamentally amiss with us. My thought is that anyone who wants to dismiss this Beck rally had better look twice. Whatever his shortcomings, Beck is not another Father Charles Coughlin, the anti-Semitic, Hitler-cheering, radio priest of the 1930s. A wholly erroneous slur to that effect came from former Democratic presidential aspirant Howard Dean. And the crowd? The people in it conveyed decency and high purpose with none of the recession-induced bigotry feverishly imagined by some critics whenever everyday Americans stand up to be counted. There is, however, something that those at the rally and multi-millions like them clearly do want fundamentally changed, and that’s the people who now hold power in Washington. Watch for another really, really big rally — of a kind — on the first Tuesday of November. • • • Jay Ambrose is former Washington director of editorial policy for Scripps Howard.

EW YORK — Despite all the words spilled in evaluating Glenn Beck’s tent-less revival last weekend, the real meaning may have been hiding in plain sight. Beck’s “Restoring Honor” gathering on the National Mall was right out of the Alcoholics Anonymous playbook. It was a 12-step program distilled to a few key words, all KATHLEEN lifted from a prayer delivPARKER ered from the Lincoln Memorial: healing, recovery and restoration. Saturday’s Beckapalooza was yet another step in Beck’s personal journey of recovery. He may as well have greeted the crowd of his fellow disaffected with: “Hi. My name is Glenn, and I’m messed up.” Beck’s history of alcoholism and addiction is familiar to any who follow him. He has made no secret of his past and is quick to make fun of himself. As he once said: “You can get rich making fun of me. I know. I’ve made a lot of money making fun of me.” Any cursory search of Beck quotes reveals the language of the addict: • “It is still morning in America. It just happens to be kind of a head- pounding, hung-over, vomiting-for-fourhours kind of morning in America.” • “I have not heard people in the Republican Party yet admit that they have a problem.” • “You know, we all have our inner demons. I, for one — I can’t speak for you, but I’m on the verge of moral collapse at any time. It can happen by the end of the show.” Indeed. After the hangover comes admission of the addiction, followed by surrender to a higher power and acknowledgment that one is always fallen. For Beck, addiction has been a defining part of his life, and recovery is a process in-


separable from The Glenn Beck Show. His emotional, public breakdowns are replicated in AA meetings in towns and cities every day. Taking others along for the ride, aka evangelism, is also part of the cure. The healed often cannot remain healed without helping others find their way. Beck, who vaulted from radio host to political-televangelist, now has taken another step in his ascendancy — to national crusader for faith, hope and charity. Beck has built a movement framed by two ideas that are unassailable: God and country. Throw in some Mom and apple pie, and you’ve got a picnic of patriotism and worship. Did somebody say Mom? Sister Sarah, come on down! Yes, Mother Superior made an appearance. Sarah Palin, whom Beck sainted a few months ago during an interview in which he declared her one of the only people who can save America, came to the Mall not to praise politics, but to honor our troops. Palin is the mother of a soldier, after all, and God bless her, and him, and all those who have served. Unassailable. As Palin said, whatever else you might say about her, she did raise a combat soldier. “You can’t take that away from me.” Who you? Oh, that’s right, The Media. Never mind that Beck is one of the richest members of the media. Or that

Palin has banked millions primarily because The Media can’t get enough of her. But what’s an exorcism without a demon? Beck invoked the ghost of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., who stood in the same spot 47 years ago to deliver his most famous speech. Where King had a dream, Beck has a nightmare: “It seems as darkness begins to grow again, faith is in short supply.” Really? When did that happen? It seems that people talk about God all the time these days. Even during the heyday of Billy Graham, most Americans could get through 16 or so waking hours without feeling compelled to declare where they stood on the deity. And the darkness? Creeping communism brought to us by President you-know-who. Conspiracy theories and paranoia are not unfamiliar to those who have wrestled the demon alcohol. Like other successful revivalists — and giving the devil his due — Beck is right about many things. Tens of thousands joined him in Washington and watch him each night on television for a reason. But he also is messianic and betrays the grandiosity of the addict. Let’s hope Glenn gets well soon. • • • Kathleen Parker writes for The Washington Post.

Seventeen young heroes of our military were cowardly attacked and killed by a terrorist in October 2000. Now Obama has put aside prosecution of their murderer, who is a known associate of Osama bin Laden. Obama’s administration says their decision falls within the president’s right to suspend legal proceedings at Guantanamo Bay. While Obama plays his political games, families of the victims deserve a better answer of how a murderer has not been brought to trial in 10 years and now may be set free because the Defense Department and the Obama fiasco cannot agree on how to handle the case. Sailors were killed, including a young hero from Rowan, and a U.S. warship damaged and our leaders are “lost.” As for prosecution, a famous detective from Scotland Yard named Sherlock Holmes has the best answer to deal with terrorists: “Elementary my dear president, elementary.” Maybe someone will explain that to Obama.

Don’t blame Alcoa Regarding the Aug. 30 letter headlined “PCB contamination at lake is real story behind Alcoa”: Although I am very sorry for Mrs. Hammond’s loss (I lost both parents to cancer), and I understand her need to blame someone, the truth is, our state’s scientific experts have studied the Badin Lake fish as requested by Stanly County. Neither that study nor facts regarding PCBs and cancer from the EPA’s websites support her theory that Alcoa is responsible for her husband’s death because: • PCBs have not been used at the Alcoa smelter since the 1970s. • PCBs can travel long distances in the air and be deposited in areas far away from where they were released. • Some of the PCBs found in the Badin Lake fish were not the type used by Alcoa. • The signs posted at Badin Lake carry the same warning that has been in place in North Carolina since 2006 (long before Mr. Hammond’s death) regarding limiting consumption of all N.C. fish due to mercury. • Extremely high levels of PCBs have been linked to liver cancer and other health concerns but not the type of cancer to which her husband succumbed. • To have been affected by the level of PCBs in the Badin Lake fish, Mr. Hammond would have had to have ingested that fish for three meals a day for two years or more. Death is always sad but pointing out misplaced blame is not dishonor, just truth. The UNC-TV piece has been proven to be paid-for propaganda and other media outlets are not covering this story because there is no story. It’s what Stanly County “wants” to be true, but it just isn’t! — Beth Livingston Lexington

No injuries, oil after Gulf rig fire

Engineers remove cap from BP oil well; no more leaks expected NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Engineers removed a temporary cap that stopped oil from gushing into the Gulf of Mexico from BP’s blown-out well in mid-July. No more oil was expected to leak into the sea, but crews were standing by with collection vessels just in case. The cap was removed as a prelude to raising the massive piece of equipment underneath that failed to prevent the spill. The government wants to replace the failed blowout preventer first to deal with any pressure that is caused when a relief well BP has been drilling intersects the blown-out well. Once that intersection occurs sometime after Labor Day, BP is expected to use mud and cement to plug the blown-out well for good.

Israelis, Palestinians agree to work on outline of peace deal WASHINGTON (AP) — In an early sign of promise, Israeli and Palestinian leaders pledged Thursday in a cordial first round of talks to keep meeting at regular intervals, aiming to nail down a framework for overcoming deep disputes and achieving lasting peace within a year.

Boats spray down the oil and gas platform that exploded in the Gulf of Mexico on thursday. As their facilitator-in-chief, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton urged Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to rise above the suspicion and skepticism that has blocked peace efforts for decades. “By being here today, you each have taken an important step toward freeing your peoples from the shackles of a history we cannot change,” she said. The eventual aim is the creation of a sovereign Palestinian state beside a secure Israel.

Retailers report solid gains; worries about holidays remain NEW YORK (AP) — This year’s back-to-school season isn’t as big a bust for retailers as they feared — or as last year’s — but it’s not great either. Americans are spending only when the item and price are just right, according to August reports from major chains released Thursday that showed shoppers bought a little more than a year ago. Analysts expect stores will need to keep discounting to get shoppers to spend this fall and for the holiday season while they grapple with job worries and tight credit. “It’s a glimmer of hope that the numbers are coming in ahead of low expectations,” said Ken Perkins, president of research firm RetailMetrics. “But the back-to-school shopping season isn’t anything to get excited about. It means that Santa may not be dumping a huge lump of coal, but it sets up a very promotional holiday season.” Retailers that cautiously primed for a comeback five months ago as sales improved have been scaling back their hopes and making some tweaks to their merchandise again, analysts said. And stores will face more difficult comparisons starting this month because consumer spending had started ris-

ing by last September.

Goats rescued after 2 days on ledge of railway bridge above highway HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Two young goats wandered onto the thin ledge of a railroad bridge and spent nearly two days high above the ground until rescuers in a towering cherry picker plucked them from their perch. The rescue occurred Wednesday 60 feet above a little-trafficked rural roadway in southern Montana between Billings and Roundup, after a caller told the Rimrock Humane Society the goats were stranded on the 6-inch ledge. The young female animals weighing 25 and 35 pounds mostly stayed on the angled ledge, even though there was a wider surface area on a pillar just a few feet away. “The whole time, we thought they were going to fall off,” said Sandy Church, humane society president. “These guys are just babies.” Church said it wasn’t clear how the animals got into the predicament, but she speculated they wandered onto the ledge at night then froze when the sun rose and they discovered where they were.

ATLANTA (AP) — Could your kitchen at home pass a restaurant inspection? New research suggests that at least one in seven home kitchens would flunk the kind of health inspection commonly administered to restaurants. The small study from California’s Los Angeles County found that only 61 percent of home kitchens would get an A or B if put through the rigors of a restaurant inspection. At least 14 percent would fail — not even getting a C. “I would say if they got below a C, I’m not sure I would like them to invite me to dinner,” said Dr. Jonathan Fielding, director of the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. In comparison, nearly all Los Angeles County restaurants — 98 percent — get A or B scores each year. The study, released Thursday, is believed to be one of the first to offer an assessment of food safety in private homes. The results were based not on actual inspections, but on an Internet quiz taken by about 13,000 adults. So it’s hard to use it for comparing conditions.

Toddler hospitalized after being trampled by a moose in Colorado

GRAND LAKE, Colo. (AP) — A toddler was injured Thursday after being trampled by a moose in north-central Colorado. The Grand County sheriff’s office said the child was flown to Children’s Hospital in Denver. A female moose ran over the child, who is about 3, and kept running. It was unclear whether the moose was charging at the child or running for some other reason.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — An oil platform exploded and burned off the Louisiana coast Thursday, the second such disaster in the Gulf of Mexico in less than five months. This time, the Coast Guard said there was no leak, and no one was killed. The Coast Guard initially reported that an oil sheen a mile long and 100 feet wide had begun to spread from the site of the blast, about 200 miles west of the source of BP’s massive spill. But hours later, Coast Guard Cmdr. Cheri Ben-Iesau said crews were unable to find any spill. The company that owns the platform, Houstonbased Mariner Energy, did not know what caused the fire. Mariner Energy’s Patrick Cassidy said he considered the incident a fire, not an explosion. “The platform is still intact and it was just a small portion of the platform that appears to be burned,” he said. Mariner officials said there were seven active production wells on the platform, and they were shut down shortly before the fire broke out. Photos from the scene showed at least five ships floating near the platform. Three of them were shooting great plumes of water onto the machinery. Light smoke could be seen. The platform is in about 340 feet of water and about 100 miles south of Louisiana’s Vermilion Bay. Its location is considered shallow water, much less than the approximately 5,000 feet where BP’s well spewed oil and gas for three months. All 13 of the platform’s crew members were rescued. They were found huddled together in life jackets. The captain of a boat that was 25 miles away when it received a distress call said the workers were holding hands in the water when they were rescued.

each of theft, drug possession and trafficking stolen property. His sentencing is scheduled for Oct. 1. King and Stacy Legg King, 39, were arrested in November after a Phoenix police officer said he saw Keith King walk into the airport, take a piece of luggage and leave. Authorities found hundreds of other bags in his home after following him there. Stacy Legg King was sentenced to 31⁄2 years in prison last month after she pleaded guilty to theft, trafficking in stolen property and a dangerous drug violation. Martos said the airport thefts should not worry passengers too much. “We don’t feel there’s necessarily a concern,” he said. “This is a contracted employee who passed a background check. Now he’s detained and arrested, so it’s not something that necessarily happens on a daily basis.”


frame in which the items were taken. “There could very well be hundreds of victims from across the country and across the globe,” Martos said. Police plan to itemize all the goods, which include electronics, figure out a timeline of when the items were taken, and set up a hotline next week for potential victims to call. Police said Hegstad was not employed with Sky Harbor, but was working as a contract employee with Carrollton, Texas-based Elite Line Services and passed a background check before being hired. A message left at the company was not returned. Meanwhile, a man accused of stealing up to 1,000 luggage bags from Sky Harbor in an unrelated case has pleaded guilty to five charges stemming from the thefts. Keith King, 62, pleaded guilty Thursday to two counts of burglary, and one count


PHOENIX (AP) — A man who worked at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport was arrested Thursday on suspicion that he stole hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of items from the luggage of passengers in a case that could include hundreds of victims from around the world. Officers saw Michael Hegstad, 23, take two boxes from a luggage conveyor belt and take out their contents on Aug. 26. He was taken into custody and admitted to repeatedly removing personal belongings from baggage, police Sgt. Steve Martos said Thursday. It was unclear whether Hegstad yet had a lawyer, and he was in the process of being booked into jail. Officers have retrieved a large amount of stolen personal items with an estimated value in the hundreds of thousands of dollars, and say it will take some time to find all the victims involved and the time

Pearl Harbor site of ceremony marking Japan’s formal surrender in WWII Inouye, who was awarded the Medal of Honor for his heroism in Italy, told the crowd the two ships are the bookends of World War II. The Arizona represents the sacrifice and resilient spirit of the American people, while the Missouri speaks of America’s triumphant victory, he said. “They send a strong message to our allies, while cautioning potential enemies, that we can endure hardships, that

SILVER SPRING, Md. (AP) — Police had been negotiating with James Jae Lee for several hours and intended to keep him talking for as long as it took to safely resolve the standoff at the Discovery Channel’s headquarters. Inside the lobby, Lee’s three hostages had no intention of waiting. As the two Discovery employees and a security guard got ready to make a break for it, officers moving in on Lee heard him shout and then a “pop” that they thought might have been gunfire or a homemade bomb detonating. So they stepped out from behind a wall and shot him dead, ending the drama that unfolded Wednesday at the cable network’s complex just north of Washington. It turned out that Lee was armed with starter pistols, police said Thursday as they revealed new details about the culmination of Lee’s yearslong crusade against the Discovery networks, which he faulted in fanatical Web posts for offering programming that promoted overpopulation. But Lee, 43, was also carrying homemade pipe bombs, one of which went off when he was shot. Capt. Paul Starks of the Montgomery County Police department described the devices as canisters of propane with pipes around them. He said inside the pipes were shotgun shells or pellets. Authorities found and detonated four more devices Thursday at a home about 3 miles north of the Discovery building. The owner of the house called police and said Lee had stayed there, according to Montgomery County Police Lt. Robert Bolesta. Authorities had been negotiating for roughly four hours Wednesday afternoon when the tactical team opened fire. “For most of the time, the hostages were laying on the ground, and he didn’t engage them much other than saying on the phone, ‘I don’t care about these people,’ ” Montgomery County Police Chief Thomas Manger said. “I believe he was not intending to come out of there alive. ... He told us many times over the course of hours that he was ready to die.”

cer and was told he has four months to live. “I told my wife, ‘Before I die, I want to see my ship again,’ ” Borrell said. “This couldn’t have been a better place for me to see it.” The Beacon, N.Y. native, now retired to Orlando, Fla., came to Hawaii with the help of the Dream Foundation, a California-based nonprofit that grants wishes to adults facing life-threatening illnesses.

The “Mighty Mo” was launched in 1944 and fought in the battles of Iwo Jima and Okinawa. It was decommissioned in 1955 but revived in the 1980s, after which it fired some of the first shots of the Gulf War in 1991. The battleship went into dry dock last year for three months of sanding and painting to remove rust that had built up on the ship’s hull. The $18 million overhaul was its first in 17 years.

PEARL HARBOR, Hawaii (AP) — Don Fosburg, 84, recalled friends and family killed in World War II as he marked the 65th anniversary of the end of the conflict on Thursday. “You start thinking about all the guys who didn’t make it. I had a cousin who was on Bataan and didn’t survive. His brother was blown up off the coast of Africa,” said Fosburg, who was a radioman aboard the USS Missouri during the war. “You start to thinking about the guys that you knew. You can’t help but do that. And maybe you think you’re pretty lucky.” Fosburg returned to the Missouri — now a museum moored in Pearl Harbor — for a ceremony commemorating 61⁄2 decades since Japan formally signed surrender papers on board the battleship when it was anchored in Tokyo Bay on Sept. 2, 1945. He remembered the mood being calmer than some two weeks before that occasion, on the night of Aug. 15, when sailors cheered and hollered after a fellow radioman got word Japan had agreed to unconditionally surrender. “He woke me up: ’They’ve accepted the surrender. The war is over!’ Then it went through the ship, and it was quite a bit of celebration,” Fosburg said. “It woke everybody up.” Veterans Secretary Eric Shinseki, who delivered the keynote address, hailed the sacrifices of those who fought on Pacific atolls, European forests and manned supply depots and refueling stations. “All great leaders know the mightiest undertakings succeed because of the strength and courage, determination and sacrifice, of men and women whose names will never be recorded in history books or memorialized in museums,” said Shinseki, a retired four-star general. The Missouri today sits just behind the USS Arizona, which sank in the Japanese attack that pushed the U.S. into the war in 1941. Sen. Daniel

This large vine is a variety of clematis that some consider a weed.

Tomatoes, flowers and scary caterpillars enerally, this time of year — late August and early September — is a slow time for consumer gardening, but I still get a variety of questions. Below are a few inquiries from the general public about various issues that may be of interest. Q: My friend has tomatoes that are low acid. Can you tell me what type of tomato is low acid so I can plant them next season? A: Research by Texas A&M University states there are some varieties that are slightly less acidic than others, but this difference is so slight that there is no real difference in taste or in how the tomatoes should be processed. Some yellowfruited types are slightly less acidic than the DARRELL red varieties, BLACKWELDER normal but not enough to make any difference. Flavor differences which exist between varieties are not because of differences in acid content, but balances of the sugar to acid ratio. Q: What is the vine blooming now that has a pretty white flower I see around the county? A: The vine is Clematis paniculata or Sweet Autumn clematis. It is a wild vine related to the cultivated clematis that blooms in the spring. Many gardeners grow it as a fall blooming vine, but it can become a weed if not held in check. Q: My shrubs have grown a bit over the past few summer months. Can I prune them now? A: Yes, light, judicious pruning can occur all during the year, but avoid pruning spring flowering shrubs such as azaleas and rhododendron. If you prune them now you will eliminate many of your flowers. Prune those shrubs in the spring after bloom. Prune shrubs such as holly, red tips or boxwood in the early spring to avoid win-

Q: There is this strange caterpillar that stung me earlier this week (after being brought into the office). I have never seen one of these before. What are these and how do I control them?

Divine Design: For kitchen sophistication and style, paint it black BY CANDICE OLSON Home and Garden Television

Many people work parttime from their homes, and many also entertain clients in their homes. This can provide a more personal and comfortable business atmosphere in which to develop a working relationship. Two of my clients had a large open kitchen where they most often found themselves entertaining both clients and friends. But the kitchen was badly outdated and needed a face-lift to project the right kind of professional image yet still be comfortable enough for casual dinners. Space was not a concern. A separate eating area large enough to house a family-sized

table was open to a spacious working area with plenty of counter space. A small island in the middle provided extra prep room. But the aesthetics hadn’t been updated in years: boring beige countertops, an outdated California ceiling fixture and busy flowered wallpaper. The first thing to go was the wallpaper, which, with its small, busy pattern, was overwhelming. I repainted the walls a buttery cream color, which provided a serene base from which to work and highlighted the wood cupboards, tying them into the new color scheme. Many people don’t think of black when renovating a kitchen. Used properly, however, it can provide a great an-

Living below your means is the only way to live Dear Mary: I have read your 10-10-80 rule, which says a person should save 10 percent, give away 10 percent and then live on 80 percent of his/her net income. Our monthly household net income is $3,750. If I am correct, with this guideline in place, we would have per $3,000 month to live on for a family of six. We have no credit cards, but we are paying on two vehicle loans. We also have past-due MARY medical bills HUNT of about $1,000 and property taxes of $2,600 per year. How do we make it all work and come out with a decent savings? — Lisa W., e-mail

Dear Lisa: Your situation is challenging. Since 1992, I have devoted my life to helping people just like you learn how to manage their incomes so they can cover their families’ needs while living below their means. It’s not easy, but I promise you that your situation is not hopeless. If I did not believe that with all my heart, I would have gone back to teaching piano lessons and selling real estate. Lisa, I believe that the hope for you and your family is in the principles of Debt-Proof Living. It’s a simple five-step money management system that is based on the 10-10-80 formula you mentioned. This column is like a tiny sample of what Debt-Proof Living is all about. Like a sample you get



at the supermarket, it’s good, but it’s not enough. It won’t satisfy your hunger. I am inviting you to do two things: First, you need to read my book “DebtProof Living.” It is the complete Debt-Proof Living plan between two covers. Then you need to become a member of Debt-Proof Living Online. (Visit for both the book and membership.) This requires a financial commitment of as little as $10 for a three-month membership, or you can opt for a substantial discount for a two-year membership. I know what you’re thinking: “Mary, you should do all of this for us for free!” And my response is simple: You will not value what does not cost you anything. Besides, my staff and my family like to eat. What we do represents a full-time commitment for many people. Managing money, getting out of debt and living below your means may be the hardest work you ever will do, but I promise it will be a joyful journey. Do you have a question for Mary?

Plumber: Generate a pre-storm plan BY ED DEL GRANDE

I like to call this the “generator season,” since it’s a time when many homeowners think about getting a standard portable generator, or a standby generator. Standby generators are permanently installed to a home’s electrical system by a licensed contractor, and run on natural or propane gas. Generators are a hot item when big storms hit, because it’s important to keep electrical equipment like sump pumps and refrigerators running. Of course, if your local officials tell you to evacuate, get out of town as soon as possible. With that in mind, here are a few more commonsense storm tips that may come in handy when bad weather approaches: • Informing others: Before the storm hits and after you’ve made plans to evacuate or ride out the storm, be sure to change all

It’s also a great backup in case some services go down and you can’t make outgoing calls. • Make efficient use of outdoor furniture: A big tip you hear every year is to tie down your patio furniture so it won’t fly around the yard or through a window. Well, a commonsense tip can be to take outdoor furniture into your house instead, and set it up in the safe room where everyone will ride out the storm. This way the room can be more comfortable with extra tables and seating for you and your family. Lounge chairs can make excellent portable beds if neighbors are staying over as well. • Use your car for a shortterm power source: It’s always a good idea to have your

car full of gas before the storm. Not only is it a good way to ensure you can evacuate, but if you’re stranded at home with no electrical power, you can use your car’s built-in generator system to power small electronics. Just make sure you have all the proper cigarette lighter adapters for devices like computers, TVs, camping coolers and cell-phone chargers. Don’t forget safety when powering up the electronics: always run the vehicle outdoors, away from the house, with the car windows open. Bottom line: Having a storm-ready home-generator system is the most powerful preparation you can make.

area. I anchored the eating area with a stunning black and burnt cream area rug, which one would think too formal for a kitchen, but it works beautifully. I kept their old dining table and chairs and repainted just the spindles and arms black to tie them in with the other black accents in the space. Simple, unfussy Roman blinds in a black and cream check covered the large windows that faced the yard. The final touch was a black candelabra-style chandelier that I centered over the table. What really gave this kitchen its personality and

panache was the use of black in the color scheme. Don’t be afraid to try it in a room in your home, but be sure to use it wisely and sparingly. A sophisticated and stylish space is the goal — not Dracula’s castle.

Readers respond to a ‘wandering’ husband Dear Readers: Recently I ran a letter from “Wandering Husband,” a 72-year-old man who offered a biological and evolutionary explanation for why men cheat. I have received many responses to this provocative letter from people — mainly men — who beg to differ with Wandering. I’m ASK happy to AMY share some of them with you. Dear Amy: “Wandering Husband” thinks cheating just happens! Bull! I was in a management position that allowed me power and access to many lovely young ladies. There were several opportunities for “it” to just happen. Never did I cheat on my wife. We both knew that if one of us wanted another sexual partner, we were not going to stay in our relationship. When a person is in a committed relationship then commit to the other person. If a couple wants an open relationship, as long as the participants are consenting adults, let them. But, Wandering Husband, don’t be so arrogant to judge all men. We are definitely not all the same. Some of us believe in trust, love and loyalty. — Dave From Chico, Calif. Dear Amy: This drove me crazy. He claims, “It’s not our nature to be monogamous.”

Many men love to fall back on this biological claim. Be reminded, “gentlemen” of a similar mindset, that a woman’s biology “compels” her to be impregnated by the sexy starving artist from the wrong side of the tracks while simultaneously keeping a wealthy man (although a less genetically blessed man) on the hook to pay for and nurture the resulting child. So I am fine with you cheating if you are in turn fine with me raising what may be Russell Brand’s love child. Alternatively, perhaps we can be grown-ups and not give in to every selfish urge? — Rational Biologist Lady Dear Amy: I read with amusement the reply from “Wandering Husband” and wonder how many times his wife strayed, and does he know about her choices? After more than 30 years of marriage, I can honestly say the only thing that ever wandered was my eye. Being in the construction business in New York City, there is plenty to look at, I assure you. — Happy at Home

when she was 17 and I was 21. We had been married 53 years when she passed away 10 years ago. We had a wonderful, monogamous marriage. Our sex life was great; we had eight children in 11 years (including twins), and I never had the desire to stray. I think a man or woman who cheats is selfish and selfindulgent. If they cheat on their spouses, I am willing to bet they cheat on other things in their lives. — Gordon Dear Amy: Adultery is not new. Faithfulness is a choice. I choose to be faithful and am thankful that my wife of 31 years has done the same. Sure, over the course of those 31 years I have had my opportunities, but I in no way feel deprived. When I am 72, I will match this gentleman’s alleged “vibrancy” and trump him on what he calls “mysterious.” My experience has been that women are more attracted to a man that they can trust and who will cherish them. They won’t find this in a 72-yearold playboy. — Joyously Faithful


Dear Amy: This letter was a real turnoff for me. My wife and I married

Dear Amy: “Wandering Husband” does not know what he is missing. I would never trade the

trust and love my wife and three daughters have in me for behavior that even a jackal would scorn. Because my daughters knew what a man who truly respected them looked like, they knew what to look for when they were choosing husbands. I cannot tell you how much I treasure that. — David Dear Amy: It’s kind of you to offer a forum for Neanderthal’s to demonstrate their lack of evolutionary progress. I’m not a knuckle-dragger — at least according to my girlfriend. — Evolved Dear Amy: It is clear that age does not equate to wisdom. When you love and respect your wife, why would you want to lose her love and respect by cheating on her? Real men do not cheat, period. — Jerry Send questions via e-mail to or by mail to Ask Amy, Chicago Tribune, TT500, 435 N. Michigan Ave., Chicago, IL 60611.

Friday, Sept. 3 There are strong indications that the year ahead will turn out to be a far more active one than you’ve experienced in some time. With all that activity, the shift in conditions will help produce a healthier, balanced life. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Your path might start out with a few stumbling blocks, but don’t let them trip you up and make you prematurely throw in the towel. Tenacity can realize your hopes and wishes. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — That opportunity to talk to someone essential to your plans might not come until midday, so don’t get discouraged early on. Keep the faith, and you’ll end up with what you want. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Although you might start out a bit down in the dumps, your upbeat spirit will grow as the day wears on, providing a lot of pizzazz. Hope you like crowds, because you may draw one. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Regardless of how your day starts, concentrate on achieving your major objectives. Conditions will improve with time, and things will work out better than you could ever hope. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — The quickest way to get over the blues is to have a good oldfashioned conversation with a few choice pals who always lighten your spirits. If you give them a call, they will come through. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Chances are there is something significant you want to change but have been reluctant to do so. Remove that spur from under your saddle, and gallop forward at full speed. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Individually, you and some friends may have little to offer; collectively, however, you could be a mighty force. Don’t be impassive; get everyone together, and act in unison when it counts. Aries (March 21-April 19) — Be sure to take the plans you make with friends seriously, because your pals will take your commitment to them in earnest. Disappointing them would be extremely unwise. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Your popularity could be ascending at this time, and both friends and family alike will make sure that you’re included in their plans. This could turn out to be a busy day for you. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — If you need to borrow money or property, go to a family member or a close friend first. When money is involved, they are the ones who are more likely to come through for you. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Enhance your thinking by talking about your ideas with some friends or colleagues who are original thinkers. You’ll know how good your plans are by your pals’ enthusiasm — or lack thereof. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — A favor you did recently for another might be reciprocated if and when that person sees an opportunity to do so. Your pal is looking for a response that is equal to your generosity. Know where to look for romance and you’ll find it.

Oppositional Defiant Disorder causes family unrest culty maintaining friendships, easy annoyance, acting irritably and refusal to comply with adult rules or requests. ODD often accompanies other problems, such as depression, anxiety and attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). There is no clear cause, but it is thought that is it likely the result of a combination of inherited and environmental factors. Possible risk factors include having a parent with a mood or substance-abuse disorder; exposure to violence; lack of supervision; being abused or neglected; having parents with a severely troubled marriage; family financial problems; inconsistent or harsh discipline; lack of positive parental involvement; parents with a history of ADHD, ODD or conduct is-

sues; and family instability, such as multiple moves, school changes or the use of childcare providers. Diagnosis is not made through blood or other physical testing. A child must meet certain criteria set by the American Psychiatric Association. In order to have a positive diagnosis, the child must show a pattern of abnormal behavior for six or more months (as compared to what is typical for the child’s peers) and meet at least four of the eight criteria. The behavior must also cause significant problems at work, home or school; must occur on its own rather than as part of another mental disorder; and must not meet the diagnostic criteria for conduct disorder or antisocial personality disorder (in those over age 18). Treatment of ODD typi-

cally involves several types of psychotherapy and training for the child and parents. Medication to treat any associated conditions, such as ADHD, may also be used. Individual and family therapy can help the child manage anger and express feelings, as well as helping the family understand how the child is feeling and provide a safe, neutral environment to discuss concerns, and learn how to cope and work together. Parent-child interaction therapy (PCIT) teaches parents how to interact with their children in order to bring out their best behavior without stressing the parent and straining the (likely) already tenuous relationship. Training may include social-skills training, which teach the child how to interact with others in a positive manner; parent training similar to PCIT; and

cognitive problem-solving training, which aids the child in identifying patterns that lead to behavioral problems and thus change them. I believe the best approach to the situation is for your entire family to seek out some or all of the treatment options I’ve detailed. In this way, everyone can come to understand what is happening and how best to handle problems when they arise. Dr. Peter H.

The odds are poor, but not zero BY PHILLIP ALDER United Feature Syndicate

Louis Nizer, a lawyer who was born in England but practiced in the United States, said, “I know of no higher fortitude than stubbornness in the face of overwhelming odds.” Sometimes the odds that you are going down in your contract will be overwhelming. But be stubborn — try to find a distribution that will let you get home. In this deal, you are in four hearts. West leads the diamond ace, then adroitly shifts to a trump. You seem to have four

losers: one spade and three diamonds. Is there any chance? North’s one-spade response increased the value of your hand, making it well worth your three-heart jump-rebid. North raised to game, hoping for the best. If West had not led a heart at trick two, you could have ruffed a diamond in the dummy to give you 10 tricks: two spades, six hearts, one club and that ruff. What, though, would you do now? You could play another diamond, hoping that West is now out of hearts. However, that is very unlikely. Instead,

assume the spades are splitting 3-3 and play to establish a third trick in that suit. True, the a priori chance of that happening is only 35.53 percent, but that is a lot better than nothing. However, if you draw trumps immediately, then, when you lose a spade trick, the opponents will cash two more diamonds to defeat you. At trick three, while you still have a trump in the dummy to ruff a third round of diamonds, play a low spade from both hands. Then, win whatever comes back, draw trumps, and hope the spades are obliging.

Dear Reader: All children and teens have moments when they can be difficult, moody DR. PETER and/or arguGOTT mentative. This is perfectly normal. However, when tantrums, arguing and angry or disruptive behaviors (especially toward the parent/guardian and other authority figures) become regular occurrences, ODD

may be the reason. Symptoms are hard to distinguish from normal behaviors of strong-willed or emotional people. In fact, the symptoms of ODD are the same as behaviors expected during certain stages of a child’s development. When these behaviors become persistent, are clearly disruptive to the family, home or school, and have lasted at least six months, ODD must be considered. Negativity, defiance, hostility toward authority figures and disobedience are common with ODD and lead to temper tantrums, academic problems, anger, resentment, argumentative, spiteful or vindictive behavior with adults and aggressiveness toward peers. There may be deliberate annoyance of others, blaming others for mistakes, diffi-


Dear Dr. Gott: My son has oppositional defiant disorder (ODD), and he seems to scheme to upset the peace in our home. Once there is a blowup, he gets a little half smile on his face. What is a parent to do to fix this?

Costly victory for Pittsburgh

Carson volleyball sweeps Falcons BY MIKE LONDON

BY ALAN ROBINSON Associated Press

PITTSBURGH — Maybe Carolina Steelers 19 P a n t h e r s Panthers 3 coach John Fox had the right idea: Rest your starters in the final exhibition game. All of a sudden, losing Ben Roethlisberger for at least a month isn’t the Steelers’ only quarterback worry. Byron Leftwich, expected to be the fill-in starter, is injured and looks to be out indefinitely. Leftwich, tuning up for his

anticipated Sept. 12 start against Atlanta, sprained his left knee in the second quarter as Pittsburgh beat the starter-less Panthers 19-3. Coach Mike Tomlin said Leftwich would undergo an MRI today, but the quarterback’s teammates sounded discouraged. Backup Charlie Batch called it a “serious” injury, and Dennis Dixon — now the likely starter — said he couldn’t talk to Leftwich because doctors were working on the knee so intensely.

CHINA GROVE — Fiery Carson volleyball coach Kelan Rogers stood surprisingly passively on the sideline, arms folded across his chest, as the Cougars dug a 7-1 hole in the third game of their sweep against NPC rival West Rowan on Thursday. Carson sophomore Allison Blackwell and tall freshman setter Michaela White, who had dominated the first two games in their home gym, sat on the bench calmly, watching to see what their team- BLACKWELL mates could do without them. Even facing a 14-7 deficit, Rogers didn’t change expression or rush in reinforcements.



Friday Night Woodruff learned value of education uccessful Raleigh attorney Louis Woodruff is grateful every day that his late mother, Mary, pushed him to get an education. Woodruff became a good football player at Salisbury’s Boyden High. He may have been a great one had he got- MIKE ten an earli- LONDON er start, but he’s never regretted his mother’s list of priorities. School integration began in Rowan County with “freedom of choice” plans that permitted black students to attend formerly all-white schools. Black schools such as J.C. Price and Dunbar operated through the spring of 1969, but courageous individuals left those schools years earlier, electing to compete athletically and academically as tiny minorities in schools that had been all white. “For my mother, it was not a tough decision at all because her emphasis was always education,” Woodruff said. “Price had very fine teachers, but the white schools had much better facilities, more resources. In 1966, I was enrolled at Knox for eighth grade. There were only a handful of us at the school.” Woodruff didn’t become an athletic standout for sev-


jon c. lakey/saLisBUrY post

salisbury quarterback John Knox, here trying to avoid south’s scotty Magnuson, could be the key tonight against Carson.

The season’s first showdown Roaming the county, getting ready for tonight ... n the Sept. 5, 2009 issue of the Salisbury Post, there’s a photo of Salisbury quarterback John Knox running past Alex Lee for a 55-yard touchdown. It was a familiar theme. Knox already had thrown two touchdown passes by then RONNIE as Salisbury GALLAGHER smacked, slapped and whacked Carson all over the field in a 50-6 win. “They beat us up,” Carson coach Mark Woody admitted afterward. Don’t expect the beat to


go on when the two teams meet tonight at Carson. Both are 2-0, and while everyone expected Salisbury to be that at this point, Carson is the team everyone’s talking about right now. Especially Salisbury coach Joe Pinyan, who shuddered while watching film of the Cougars. “To me, West (Rowan) and Carson are the two best teams in the county,” Pinyan said. “I think they’re close to even.” Tonight will be a matchup of the county’s two best running backs: Carson’s Shaun Warren and Salisbury’s Romar Morris. But the real key to the game may be that guy in the photo running by Lee — Knox. Ol’ No. 3 isn’t getting the attention of teammates Morris or Darien Rankin, both North Carolina commitments.

Games at 7:30 P.M.

Salisbury at Carson West Rowan at Davie NW Cabarrus at South Rowan East Rowan at Concord Thomasville at A.L. Brown But you can bet Woody knows who the Cougars must contain. Few teams have stopped Knox, including East Rowan in last week’s 36-3 win by the Hornets.

“Somewhere, he took some magical classes,” Pinyan laughed. “He was like Harry Houdini running around out there the other night. One time, they should’ve had him three or four times and he throws a touchdown pass.” The same thing could be said for the 5-foot-7 Warren. Woody likes to run his tailback up the gut, but he always seems to swerve his way through the mass of bodies for a 200-yard game. And that scares Pinyan a little. “We’re hanging our hat on a young, young defense,” he said. “But I thought we took some major steps last Friday.”


eral years. His concentration was all on academics. Finally, his grades were solid enough and his mother was pleased enough that he got permission to go out for football for the first time as a junior. This was the 1968 football season, and by then, numerous black athletes — WOODRUFF such as James Teal, who would play in the NFL — had made their mark at Boyden. Woodruff wasn’t an overnight sensation. He would spend his junior football season with the jayvees. “I hadn’t been playing football, but I was an athlete,” Woodruff said. “I intercepted seven or eight passes that year.” As the 1960s unfolded, Supreme Court rulings rejected “freedom of choice” as a plan. It had failed to make integration of Southern schools happen at a reasonable pace. “Immediate desegregation” replaced “freedom of choice” as the law of the land, and black schools, rich in history but physically worn down, were shuttered. The 1969-1970 school year, Woodruff’s senior year, shaped up as a turbulent one.


Common Sense says Carson poised for breakthrough ommon Sense went 5-0 last week by picking the obvious favorites and is 10-1 for the season. This week offers a considerably stiffer challenge, with a pair of unbeaten teams matching up and a pair of 0-2 teams squaring off. Common Sense offers one pick tonight that may surprise fans and will pleasantly surprise Salisbury coach Joe Pinyan, who always wants to be the team picked against, but Carson has a lot going for it.


Carson 21, Salisbury 20 While you may wish to point out that it’s anything but sensible to predict a Carson victory against a Salisbury team that thoroughly walloped, trounced, drubbed, pummeled and demoralized the Cougars 50-6 last season at Ludwig Stadium, I’ll cheerfully wander out on a limb with a nod to the Cougars. Carson actually battered Salisbury up front when the teams met at Carson in 2008, but the Hornets bigplayed the Cougars to death.

Not saying that Carson is ready for West Rowan. No one in his or her right mind is saying that, but Carson is very good. One of my wise old friends insists South Rowan will beat Carson, simply because South has always beaten Carson, but anyone who has seen Carson play in 2010 probably is ready to buy an orange blanket and a Cougar bumper sticker. Carson participated in two playoff games last season — both on the road — but tonight’s game is the most im-

portant regular-season game in school history and the biggest home game in history, with the possible exception of the first time the Cougars played host to neighbor South in 2008. This is a chance to take the next step for the Cougars. Salisbury puts out a quality team every year. The Hornets were an inch away from the 2AA title game last year, and if you can beat Salisbury, well, that’s when people start taking you seriously.

VOLLEYBALL FROM 1C Eventually, Carson came back behind the strong serving of veterans Leah Perkins and Marissa Sellers to complete a 25-9, 25-9, 25-18 victory. “We’ve got depth, a lot of people who are very close in ability, and I’ve got confidence in anyone I put out on the court,” Rogers explained. “The girls we had out there hung in there and they fought back. That was good to see.” Carson had the county’s best team last season, winning 22 times, including a playoff game, but it graduated six players who were all-county during their careers — Taylor Whitley, Breckin Settlemyer, Sarah Marshall, Jennifer Hough, Amber Ingraham and Shanna Stewart. “We did lose the big majority of our team,” said Blackwell, a sophomore who also shines in softball and basketball for the Cougars. “But at the same time, we’ve gained some great new talent and we’ve got the potential to be even stronger.” It’s a much younger squad that’s trying to keep Carson on top in the county and in contention in the NPC, where West Iredell and North Iredell are usually the teams to beat. “We’re just so young — we started three sophomores and a freshman today,” Rogers said with a sigh. “So far, it’s been a real roller-coaster ride, but we’re plugging along.” The roller coaster has been mostly up. Carson is 7-2 overall and 3-0 in the NPC after beating West Rowan. Carson split with



Starmount and lost to 4A Reagan. “We’ve had our ups and downs, for sure,” Sellers said. “But we’re fighting through it, and we’ve improved a lot already. Today, I think we showed how much potential we have to be a good team.” West, which hopes to get a significant contribution from athletic 6-foot-2 basketball and track standout Shay Steele once she gains volleyball experience, was overwhelmed at the net by Blackwell, White and Aimee Cloninger in a lopsided Game 1. West trailed 7-5 before the Cougars blew it open on a big service run by Perkins. Blackwell had seven of her 12 kills in that game, using finesse dinks as well as the power she showed last year. “We talk a lot about that every day, about keeping our intensity up and being smarter with our plays,” Blackwell said. Sarah Perrine led West in the opening game with two kills, a block and several nice digs. Carson bolted to a 9-1 lead and cruised in Game 2. Newcomer Angela Talerico served for 11 points in the game, seven straight in one run, and racked up two aces. Sidney Grkman had two kills, while Sellers, who played exclusively on the back last season, looked sharp on the front row. “Sellers has the disadvantage of not being tall, but she’s power-

ful, she can jump and she’s playing smarter all the time,” Rogers said. S e n i o r B r e e a n n L a m bert had two kills for West in Game 2. LAMBERT Then the Falcons got off to that great start in Game 3, with Lambert and Lela Moore leading the way. They had three kills each in the game. Carson trailed 14-7 before Perkins and Sellers took charge, and they got help from Jordan Whitley, who contributed the dig of the day (rolling on the floor) and four quick kills. When Perkins trotted to the service line, the Cougars trailed 17-13, but they reeled off five straight points for the lead. A wellplaced ace by Perkins down the left sideline gave the Cougars their first lead of the game at 18-17. With Carson leading 20-18, Sellers served five straight points and closed the match by whistling a wicked ace in front of two diving Falcons. “A couple of our veterans served very well at the end,” Rogers said. “It was good to see that senior leadership take over a little bit.” Carson has a tough week ahead — Davie, West Davidson (Rogers’ old school) and a big one at North Iredell on Thursday. West fell to 0-3 in the NPC, but Lambert is optimistic better days are ahead. “We’ve just got to cover more and we’re thinking too much right now instead of just reacting quickly to the ball,” she said. “But we’ll keep working at it, and we’ll be fine.”


Santana baffles Braves Associated Press

ATLANTA — David Wright homered, Johan Santana won for the first time in four starts and New York snapped Atlanta’s five-game winning streak with a 4-2 victory Thursday night. The Mets, who had dropped three straight, broke a 13-game stretch in which they scored three runs or less against the NL East-leading Braves. Tim Hudson (15-6) lost for the first time in nine starts after allowing eight hits and four runs — three earned — with one walk and four strikeouts in seven innings. Santana (11-9) left after five innings, his shortest outing in 23 starts, throwing 65 pitches. The Mets announced that the left-hander had a strained pectoral muscle and was listed as day-today. Santana allowed three hits, one run and one walk with three strikeouts to avoid losing four straight starts for the first time since May 18-June 3, 2004 with Minnesota. Phillies 12, Rockies 11 DENVER — Chase Utley drove in six runs and hit a grand slam to cap a nine-run seventh inning as Philadelphia overcame a four-run deficit. Utley’s six RBIs tied a career high and came after Ryan Howard and Jayson Werth also went deep during the big inning in which the Phillies had nine hits. Antonio Bastardo (1-0) benefited from the Phillies’ big inning, getting the win despite allowing a run and four hits in one inning of relief. Brad Lidge got the last three outs for his 19th save but not before giving up a run. Colorado had 19 hits. Carlos Gonzalez hit his 31st homer and Chris Iannetta and Dexter Fowler also homered as the Rockies built a 7-3 lead heading into the seventh. American League NEW YORK — CC Sabathia pitched one-hit ball for eight innings to earn his major league-leading 19th win, fill-in Curtis Granderson homered twice and New York beat Oakland 5-0 on Thursday for a four-game sweep. Sabathia (19-5) gave up Mark Ellis’ clean single leading off the second. Jonathan Albaladejo completed the combined one-hitter in the ninth. Granderson hit a solo homer and a two-run shot as a replacement for Nick Swisher, who left after one inning because of a stiff left knee. Jorge Posada also homered a day after an animated ejection, propelling the Yankees to their sixth straight victory. Red Sox 6, Orioles 4 BALTIMORE — Adrian Beltre homered to spark a five-run second inning, and Boston salvaged a .500 road trip. David Ortiz drove in two runs and J.D. Drew had three hits for the Red Sox, who moved within 61⁄2 games of idle Tampa Bay in the AL wild-card race. Boston dropped two of three on the road against the Rays, then lost in Baltimore on Tuesday before winning two straight. After missing his last start with a sore back, Daisuke Matsuzaka (9-4) gave up four runs in 5 2-3 innings. Jonathan Papelbon worked the ninth for his 35th save. Indians 6, Mariners 3 SEATTLE — Shin-Soo Choo drove in five runs with a bases-loaded double and a two-run home run to lead the Indians. Choo, traded to the Indians by Seattle in 2006, hit a 3-1 fastball from Doug Fister (4-11) against the rightcenter-field wall in the Indians’ four-run sixth to score all three runners without a throw. He added his two-run shot in the ninth to match his season-high for RBIs. Choo had five RBIs against the White Sox on April 18.

Federer cruises at U.S. Open BY HOWARD FENDRICH Associated Press

NEW YORK — Roger Federer is one cool customer. The temperature climbed into the 90s yet again Thursday at Flushing Meadows, and the guy showed up for work wearing a warmup jacket. Then he put in his 1 hour, 41 minutes on court, dismissing 104th-ranked Andreas Beck of Germany 6-3, 6-4, 6-3 with the help of 15 aces, to ease into the third round of the U.S. Open. “It’s about just saving your energy for the really big match coming up, maybe the next one,” Federer said, perhaps mindful that he was pushed to five sets in the opening round at Wimbledon in June before eventually losing in the quarterfinals at a second consecutive major tournament. He dropped all of seven games in the first round of the U.S. Open, and the owner of a record 16 Grand Slam titles is feeling pretty good about things at the moment. “It’s the perfect start, sure. I played Monday; had two days off. I had another easy one physically today, and here I am in the third round feeling like I’m completely in the tournament,” said Federer, a five-time U.S. Open champion and the only man left in the field who has won it. “I got a sense for how the court speed is again. I got the sense of the crowd and the wind now, as well. I played one night, one day,” he continued. “I have all the answers after two matches.” In other words: Let everyone else sweat it out. Like Kei Nishikori, the 147thranked qualifier from Japan, who fought cramps in his racket-holding right hand and elsewhere while taking a minute shy of five hours to wrap up a 5-7, 7-6 (6), 3-6, 7-6 (3), 6-1 victory over 11th-seeded Marin Cilic. “It was very humid. It wasn’t easy to get the oxygen,” said Cilic, a U.S. Open quarterfinalist last year, and an Australian Open semifinalist in January. The 20-year-old Nishikori began feeling his muscles tighten in the second set but didn’t really begin worrying until after trailing 2-1 in sets. “I was thinking about it in fourth set, mostly: ’Even if I win this, I have to play one more set. It’s not going to be easy for me, you know, cramping,”’ said Nishikori, who reached the fourth round two years ago, the first Japanese man since 1937 to get that far at the U.S. Open. “But I was able to fight through.” His was one of a handful of upsets on Day 4 of a tournament that is quickly accumulating surprises. Beatrice Capra, an 18-year-old from Ellicott City, Md., made like 2009 U.S. Open darling Melanie Oudin and ousted No. 18-seeded Aravane Rezai of France 7-5, 2-6, 6-3. No. 9 Agnieszka Radwanska lost to Peng Shuai, and No. 22

roger Federer won 6-3, 6-4, 6-3 against andreas Beck. Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez lost to Patty Schnyder. Seeded winners included 2004 champion Svetlana Kuznetsova, 2008 runner-up Jelena Jankovic and 2010 Wimbledon finalist Vera Zvonareva. Top-seeded Caroline Wozniacki, like Federer, didn’t waste any time on court, blanking 84th-ranked Chang Kai-chen 6-0, 6-0. At 371st, Capra is the lowestranked woman left. She’s also the youngest — and not only is she making her Grand Slam debut, she’s playing in the main draw of a tour-level event for the first time. She said she “watched every second” as Oudin, then 17, reached the quarterfinals 12 months ago. “I really look up to Melanie,” said Capra, who earned a wild card from the U.S. Tennis Association by winning an eight-entrant playoff. “You know, it was really inspiring to me.” One of the women Oudin knocked off in 2009, three-time major champion Maria Sharapova, awaits Capra in the third round. Wearing tuxedo lapels on her deep purple night-match dress, Sharapova beat 68thranked Iveta Benesova of the Czech Republic 6-1, 6-2 under the lights. “When I was younger, I used to always look up to her,” Capra said about 2006 U.S. Open champion Sharapova, who is all of 23 now, “and so I think it will be a really good match for me to see where I am compared to that kind of level.” Asked what she knows about Capra, the 14th-seeded Sharapova said: “Not too much. I know that she’s American, and she’s 18, I believe, and she’s in the third round of the Open, so that says a lot.” Sharapova was followed into Arthur Ashe Stadium by 2008 Australian Open winner Novak Djokovic, whose 7-5, 6-3, 7-6 (6) victory over 52nd-ranked Philipp Petzschner of Germany was interrupted briefly in the eighth game while police escorted out three spectators after a fight in the upper deck. Djokovic made it to at least the semifinals in New York each of the past three years — and

lost to Federer each time. Among those winning in the afternoon were Richard Gasquet, a former top-10 player who eliminated No. 6-seeded Nikolay Davydenko 6-3, 6-4, 6-2; Robin Soderling, a two-time French Open runner-up who beat American Taylor Dent 6-2, 6-2, 6-4; and South Africa’s Kevin Anderson, who outlasted No. 26 Thomaz Bellucci 6-7 (4), 6-4, 5-7, 6-4, 7-6 (2). Americans Mardy Fish and James Blake won, as did No. 13 Jurgen Melzer, No. 21 Albert Montanes, and No. 22 Juan Carlos Ferrero. Blake, a wild-card entry, will take on No. 3 Djokovic in the third round. The No. 5-seeded Soderling’s next opponent will be 48thranked Thiemo de Bakker, who advanced Thursday when Ivan Dodig quit in the fourth set because of cramping. Soderling-Dent was in the third set during Federer’s postmatch news conference. And Federer — whose loss to Soderling in the French Open quarterfinals this year ended a record streak of 23 consecutive Grand Slam semifinal appearances — kept glancing at the flat-screen TV on the wall to his right, surely aware that he could meet the Swede again in that round next week. Federer has won 42 of his past 43 matches at Flushing Meadows, the only loss coming in last year’s final to Juan Martin del Potro, who didn’t defend his title after wrist surgery. With Andy Roddick’s exit in the second round Wednesday night, and Lleyton Hewitt’s departure in the first, Federer is the only previous winner of the U.S. Open left in the men’s field. “It’s definitely an advantage, I would think, because (of) the conditions here,” Federer said. “You could be unlucky and get hit with a really hot day or a very windy day, and not even in your control, sometimes, you lose a match here. That’s where it’s important, like today, to get through easily, instead of maybe going (through a) five-hour match.” Tell that to Nishikori.

West Rowan

NW Cabarrus at South Rowan


Davie annually moves the ball against West better than anyone, and it hasn’t turned the ball over against West in the last two meetings. Davie was the last team to beat West (Aug. 29, 2008) and pushed the Falcons to the limit last year. West has won 32 straight games, and unbeaten QB B.J. Sherrill has been good against Davie in his career (27-for-45, two TDs, one pick, 358 yards in two outings). Davie WR Joe Watson, a Duke commitment who has been quiet so far, has been an All-American against West the past two years with eight catches for 272 yards and three TDs. There will be some talent on the field in Mocksville. West can counter Watson with DB Domonique Noble, a Georgia Tech commitment. Receiver Darius Wilson stepped forward for the War Eagles last week with a stellar outing and provides another target for quarterback Carson Herndon. — Mike London

 Time: 7:30 p.m.  Records: NW Cabarrus 0-2; South Rowan 0-2  Series: South leads 20-7  Last meeting: Northwest upset South 17-14 last season  Last South win in series: South rolled 27-6 at Donnell Stadium in 2008  Streaks: South was 9-1 in the 1980s vs. the Trojans to take a big lead in the series, but NWC has won two of three since the series resumed in 2007  Last week: Northwest lost 26-7 to West Rowan; South Rowan was blitzed 45-7 by A.L. Brown  Next week: Northwest is open; South is home against another SPC team — Jay M. Robinson  Game notes: Someone has to get victory No. 1. South was optimistic after playing a competitive game at Salisbury on opening night, but last week’s 45-7 bludgeoning by an A.L. Brown team


East Rowan


at Concord  Time: 7:30 p.m.  Records: East 1-1; Concord 1-1  Series: Concord leads 32-3-1  Last meeting: East won 30-0 in Granite Quarry in 2009  Last Concord win in the series: Spiders romped 48-6 at Bailey Stadium in 2004  Streaks: Concord had won 25 in a row in the series before East won last season. East hadn’t beaten the Spiders since a 7-6 decision in 1979  Last week: East Rowan lost to Salisbury 36-3; Concord edged Lexington 15-13 for a sloppy road win  Next week: East is home against Hickory Ridge, another SPC squad; Concord is home against Gastonia Hunter Huss  Game notes: Concord’s series dominance, including a 61-0 win over East in the playoffs in 1991, has been well-documented, but the Mustangs broke through in 2009. East managed only 155 yards of



offense last week against a Salisbury defense that didn’t look good against South Rowan, while Concord was holding talented Lexington to just 120 yards. Those numbers don’t bode well for an East team that doesn’t throw a lot and relies on the running abilities of QB Jamey Blalock (141 rushing yards), Chris Moore (112 yards) and Max Allen (121 yards). Concord will be looking for revenge at Bailey Stadium tonight in its home opener. Guided by former Salisbury coach Glenn Padgett, Concord likes to move through the air and will test players such as East veteran defensive back Evan Hiatt. Tall Concord sophomore QB B.J. Beecher (143 passing yards last week) is a future star. Concord will also employ a “Wildcat” formation at times with snaps going directly to elusive Dominique Posey. — Mike London

Thomasville at A.L. Brown  Time: 7:30 p.m.  Records: Thomasville 2-0; A.L. Brown 2-0  Series: Thomasville leads 11-8 since 1952  Last meeting: Wonders won 34-28 at Cushwa Stadium in 2009 in the renewal of an old rivalry  Last Thomasville win in the series: Bulldogs prevailed 20-19 in 1976  Streaks: Thomasville just completed a decade during which it went 123-20 with seven league championships and four state titles; the Wonders went 108-30 from 2000-09 with eight league crowns  Last week: Thomasville won 21-14 at Mt. Airy; Brown ripped South Rowan 45-7 at Memorial Stadium  Next week: The Bulldogs go to Albemarle; Brown has its open date  Game notes: Brown superstar Travis Riley, a UNC commitment, is out for the season with knee and leg injuries sustained on a freak play in



the opener. Riley had stopped after running out of bounds and sustained a hit while his leg was planted. The ACL wasn’t damaged, but the PCL and MCL were. Thomasville still has its own Riley, electrifying running back Quin Riley, who scored three TDs last week. That gives the Bulldogs a decent chance to win at Memorial Stadium. Brown defenders such as lineman Mark Goodjohn and linebacker Andrew Leslie have a challenge in front of them because the Bulldogs also throw the ball well. Sam Nelson is one of the best QBs in the area. Last year’s game, the renewal of a series that had been silent since the schools were SPC rivals in the 1960s, produced a tremendous struggle at Cushwa Stadium. Both teams have quality kickers (A.L. Brown’s Brenden Brown, Thomasville’s Lawson Hodges) if it comes down to a field goal in the closing minutes. — Mike London

COMMON FROM 1C The thinking here is that Carson has a significant edge in the trenches on both sides of the ball, and that’s where every football coach in America will tell you the game is won. Throw in the high ankle sprain currently afflicting Salisbury kicker David Simons and the Cougars chances get a little better. Of course, there’s also a chance Salisbury sprinter Romar Morris trashes the Cougars with five 99-yard runs and trashes this pick. Romar is Romar, but Carson’s Shaun Warren is almost as uncatchable. The other games: South Rowan 20, NW Cabarrus 17 It’s a total tossup between 0-2s. It’s also the resistible force meeting the movable object. Northwest is scoring 3.5 points a game. South is allowing 42 points a game.

Offensively, Salisbury is the most exciting team around. In two victories, the Hornets have touchdown plays of 44, 48, 80, 82 and 83 yards. “I don’t know about the exciting part,” Pinyan laughed. “There’s pressure on me just to win. But when you have guys like we do, you’re going to be exciting. And we have one weapon that hasn’t stirred the pot yet in Dominique Dismuke. We get him rolling and we should really be exciting.” Pinyan knows there will be the usual packed house at Carson and knows the Cougars are pretty exciting too. He said Carson has four legitimate weapons in Warren, quarterback Zack Gragg, receiver Cody Clanton and 48-minute man Jacorian Brown. “I don’t think it will be anything like last year,” Pinyan said. • Super photographer Jon Lakey will shoot the CarsonSalisbury game tonight. Salisbury, East, North and South have been photographed in each of the first two weeks. Carson has been shot once. Who is the only team not to have photos in the paper? The forgotten West Rowan Falcons. Hmm. How do you forget a team with 32 straight wins and two straight state titles under its belt? After Week 1, I joked with coach Scott Young that his Falcons were getting no love from the media — us or the Charlotte TV stations who didn’t have highlights of them. “We’re under the radar,” Young said with a grin. The Falcons will finally get their photos tonight when they travel to 0-2 Davie, which always seems to play its best game against West. The home team has won the last five contests. And you want exciting? Four have been nail-biters: 47-37, 39-36, 28-24 and 17-13. • They’re debating in Davie whether to build a second high school. If it ever happens, perhaps the one on the Mocksville end will drop to 3A size and join the North

West Rowan 28, Davie County 14 Davie County actually believes it can beat West, and not many teams can say that anymore. The War Eagles will take their best shot at home, but look for the Falcons to make it 33 in a row. A.L. Brown 24, Thomasville 21 Thomasville hasn’t visited Kannapolis since the mid-1970s when they were rivals in the old SPC. Thomasville’s Quin Riley is a player. Unfortunately, Brown’s Travis Riley isn’t expected to play again until he’s wearing Carolina blue. Concord 21, East Rowan 7 The Spiders should win this one to avenge last year’s surprising loss to the Mustangs. Let’s just hope it’s not the start of a new 25-game winning streak by the Spiders in the series. 

North Rowan is off tonight and will return to action at home against Lexington.




that was missing its best player was an eye-opener. Northwest had a miserable offensive outing in a shutout loss to Mooresville opening night but came away from last week’s loss to West feeling better about things. The Trojans were supposed to lose by 50 but held West under 200 rushing yards, which isn’t easy to do, and John Edmond scored a fourth-quarter TD. Still, Northwest managed just 60 yards for the game against West and produced only 37 in the air. South has moved the ball best so far with a power running game built around fullback Ricky Sherrill, who gets blocking from players such as Clint Meece and Ben Mann. It figures to be close and lowscoring. Turnovers will obviously be critical, as neither team possesses an abundance of firepower. NWC has a big edge in the kicking game with Bradley Pinion. — Mike London

Piedmont Conference. Davie is sandwiched between Rowan and Iredell counties, so the War Eagles would be a perfect fit. • In other games tonight, South Rowan is favored at home to win its first game of the season against Northwest Cabarrus.

 Time: 7:30 p.m.  Records: Salisbury 2-0; Carson 2-0  Series: Salisbury leads 3-0  Last meeting: Hornets smashed the Cougars 50-6 in 2009  Streaks: Salisbury’s scored 98 points in two games against Carson at Ludwig Stadium, but the game in China Grove in 2008 was close  Last week: Salisbury thumped East Rowan 36-3; Carson crushed North Rowan 43-0  Next week: Salisbury is at West Rowan; Carson is at West Davidson  Game notes: Should be the game of the night. Carson was supposed to be good this season and hasn’t disappointed. Tailback Shaun Warren has racked up two straight 200-yard games behind an offensive line that’s been forceful and physical, and Carson’s defense has come up with a staggering 11 turnovers. Carson, with players such as



defensive lineman Ryan Shoaf, appears to have an edge up front on both sides of the ball, but Salisbury has an equalizer in incredibly fast back Romar Morris, a UNC commitment who owns six TDs this season and 34 for his career. Like Warren, Morris is gone if he finds the slightest crack in the defense. Four of Morris’ six scores this season have come on plays of 40 or more yards. He has a kickoff return TD and two receptions for scores, so he can burn defenses a lot of ways. Carson completed only one pass last week and will have to throw more efficiently to beat the Hornets for the first time. QB Zack Gragg had 150 passing yards opening night. Salisbury QB John Knox is off to a stellar start with five TD passes and no interceptions. Three of his TD passes, plus a two-point conversion, have gone to tight end Riley Gallagher, who always seems to be open. — Mike London

One-time foe of Falcons committed to Florida BY JOEDY MCCREARY Associated Press

RALEIGH — Jeoffrey Pagan can just about do it all on defense, and that’s a big reason why the defensive end at Asheville High School is headed to Florida next fall. “He’s a guy that’s good enough to certainly put a lot of pressure on the passer, and then he can turn around and get into some zone blitz stuff and he’s plenty good enough to drop into flat coverage,” high school coach Danny Wilkins said. Pagan is one of two North Carolina players on The Associated Press South Region 25 list of top recruits. He has committed to Florida, choosing Urban Meyer’s Gators — No. 4 in the Top 25 preseason poll — over a list of elite programs that include Ohio State and Southern California, according to his high school coach.

“That’s one of my coach’s main concerns — it not affecting me this year,” said Pagan, who faced West Rowan PAGAN in the third round of last year’s playoffs. “Me knowing that I’ve got a lock with Florida as soon as I get out of here feels good, and it’s a lot of fun. That’s a great place for me to go and excel and hopefully make it to the next level.” Even better, he said he found a way to get his mom to all the games, saying, “That’s really all that matters.” Wilkins says Pagan has added about 30 pounds of muscle to his 6-foot-4 frame and now weighs 270 pounds. But the extra bulk hasn’t hurt his quickness or speed: The coach says Pagan ran the

40-yard dash in 4.6 seconds at a recent Shrine Bowl combine. He said Pagan started attracting interest from Division I programs as a junior, and Florida approached him last December. At that time, Wilkins said Gators assistant D.J. Durkin called him, telling him it was a “no-brainer.” “They saw the video tape and they wanted to get in early and offer him, and then it snowballed,” he added. Wilkins said he is looking for Pagan to improve the way he uses his hands to get off blocks and swat at passes and also hopes he can develop a tougher edge on the field. “Jeoffrey’s got a great demeanor — he’s a truly super nice kid,” Wilkins said. “He’s such a nice guy (but) you don’t want to be the nice guy on the field. ... Just a contrast for the personality that he has. ... There’s no ego or anything like that with him.”

Anthony making Anson a must-see for coaches BY JOEDY MCCREARY Associated Press

RALEIGH — Stephone Anthony might be the leading tourist attraction in rural Anson County. According to his coach, a long list of schools have sent recruiters to Wadesboro to evaluate his star linebacker: Southern California, Oregon, Florida, Florida State, Miami and California are among those that have shown interest, he said. “We’ve had some schools come in that haven’t been to Anson County before,” coach Luke Hyatt said. “You can pretty much name it. We’ve been in a little contact with everybody, which is good as far as establishing relationships for the future.” Anthony, one of two North Carolina players on The Associated Press South Region Super 25 list of top recruits, is a 6-foot-2, 220-pound linebacker who hasn’t settled on a school yet. He says his list includes, in alphabetical order, Clemson, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, N.C. State and Virginia Tech. “Right now as (the) year goes on, no telling what could happen,” he said. “The fun part is going to the colleges and seeing them and being around the players, meeting different people and just seeing that. I’d say the tough part is, I do so many interviews, answer so many phone calls. I haven’t had to change my phone number yet.” The four-year starter and one of the nation’s top prep outside linebackers entered his senior season with an Anson County High School-record-tying 18 career interceptions, Hyatt said. He has run the 40-yard dash in 4.5 seconds, and Hyatt said Anthony needs to improve how he uses his hands and sheds blockers. “He’s so dadgum long,” the coach said. “He can run, and he’s long, and he can run

sideline to sideline and eat up a lot of space in a little amount of time. ... He’s a quick learner, always asking questions, always asking what he can do better.” Hyatt said recruiters first took notice of him two years ago when he was the defensive player of the year in his conference. Things took off in 2009, and about two dozen schools have offered scholarships. “The mail is crazy,” Anthony said. “Some of the stuff says the same things. But I try to take it in and just enjoy it. Hyatt said he has helped organize his star linebacker’s time so he isn’t overwhelmed by the attention he has received. “The recruiting process with him and the number of schools he’s got can become hectic at times,” Hyatt said.

LOUIS WOODRUFF ry. Then he had his own “home-run block,” springing Roger Jackson, a record-setting hurdler, on a punt return for a backbreaking touchdown in a 20-6 victory. “I remember that game because I was covering Thomasville’s end James Steele, who was about 6-9,” Woodruff said. “James and I got to be good friends after we went to UNC, and I always liked to remind him I stole two of his passes.” Boyden actually won its last four games, including the finale against Asheboro — but it had lost to Lexington and Concord, and those two were the division winners. While it didn’t make the playoffs, that Boyden team owns a place in history. Boyden’s sports teams had been Yellow Jackets for many decades, but that 1969 team, acknowledging a new integrated era, was the first to take the field as the Hornets. Two seasons later, the Hornets would roll to championships wearing “Salisbury” on their jerseys for the first time, a symbolic joining of the storied football traditions at Boyden and

Price. Woodruff’s gridiron career was short, but coaches such as Pete Stout and Aaron Neely made a lasting impression. “They taught me work ethic, dedication and about never giving up,” Woodruff said. “They taught life skills, not just football skills, and I’m thankful for that.” After graduating high school, Woodruff made his mother proud by earning a political science degree from UNC. Then he graduated from law school at North Carolina Central in 1978. Woodruff lives now in Fuquay-Varina and practices law in Raleigh, but four brothers bring him back to Salisbury often and he returned not long ago for his 40th class reunion. Woodruff’s athletic accomplishments may not rank with those of some of his Hall of Fame teammates, but he’s convinced his mother had the right idea. Education is everything. “One bad break can end your career as an athlete,” Woodruff said. “But once knowledge is in your head, it can never be taken away.”

With Price closed, Boyden virtually had two football teams: the established one and a new one comprised of former Red Devils such as ultra-talented Kenny Holt. “There could’ve been major problems, but I can remember very few,” Woodruff said. “Sports became the unifying factor for the school.” Woodruff recalls unusual compromises. David Garwood, a white quarterback who had strong passing numbers, usually played the first half. Holt, an elusive runner with a rifle arm, usually played the second half. Boyden finished 8-2 and allowed just 9.7 points per game with a bruising defense led by junior tackle Robert Pulliam, who would become a Parade All-American. Woodruff started in the defensive secondary and had his moments in one of the state’s toughest leagues. In a 46-7 win against South Rowan, Woodruff went the length of the field with a pick to score a touchdown. “I believe it was the last play of the half, and Jay Bradshaw threw up a hail mary for them,” Woodruff said. “I picked it off and just started weaving through people, and I got a home-run block from my good friend Larry Dalton to score. “People told me later how the crowd was roaring, but I didn’t hear a thing. The other thing I remember was I was completely exhausted when I finished that run.” The SPC was split into two divisions in 1969 and had five powerhouses — Thomasville, Concord, A.L. Brown, Boyden and Lexington — fighting for the two berths in the SPC championship game. It was a bruising league. Twenty points amounted to an offensive explosion. On Nov. 6, Woodruff did a lot to keep Boyden in the race with his monumental game against Thomasville. He intercepted a pass at the Boyden 1 and returned it 55 yards. He added a second pick deep in Boyden territo-

Wake batters Blue Hose in opener BY JOEDY MCCREARY Associated Press

WINSTON-SALEM — Ted Stachitas didn’t see Wake 53 any open rePC 13 ceivers left, so he ran right — all the way to the end zone. His Wake Forest teammates got in on the act, too, and it added up to a big night for their ground game. The Demon Deacons had 415 yards rushing and six touchdowns on the ground in their 53-13 rout of Presbyterian on Thursday night, their highest-scoring opener since 1941. “You can’t rush for over 400 and not be pleased about it,” coach Jim Grobe said. Stachitas finished with 160 total yards in his first college start, was 7 of 13 for 84 yards passing in two quarters of work and rushed for 76 more — including the impressive 34-yard touchdown run that got things started. Backup tailback Josh Harris scored twice, Alex Frye returned an interception 44 yards for an early score and receiver Devon Brown took an end-around 85 yards for a fourthquarter TD — the fourth-longest rush in school history. Wake Forest, DORTY which got four tackles and one pass breakup from starting defensive end Tristan Dorty (West Rowan), gained 509 total yards. It led 21-0 before allowing the outmanned Blue Hose a first down, and each of its three tailbacks on the depth chart found the end zone at least once. Josh Adams scored early from 14 yards out, Brandon Pendergrass had a 16-yarder and Harris added a 3-yard TD to give the Demon Deacons a 35-7 halftime lead. Harris added a 46-yard touchdown run with 1:25 remaining. By then, though, the starting quarterback’s night had long been over, and Grobe played three other backups — including promising freshman Tanner Price. “I think by the time we hit halftime, we felt like we’d seen out of him what we needed,” Grobe said. “And we felt we’re not going to go

Blue Hose coach Harold Nichols said. “That’s one of the things, making this transition. We’ve set these kind of challenges.” The biggest challenge in WinstonSalem this summer was at the quarterback position, where the Demon Deacons were trying to figure out who would replace Riley Skinner, the holder of just about every meaningful record in the media guide. Stachitas, who took a few snaps in one game last season but did not attempt a pass, was No. 3 on the depth chart at the end of spring practice but won the job with his consistent play during preseason camp. Once he finally got into a game — albeit, one against subpar competition — he showed some indications that he might be up to the task. Then again, replacing supposedly irreplaceable players is nothing new for Stachitas, who succeeded Tim Tebow at their Florida high school. And right away, he showed he might have picked up some of his old prep teammate’s moves. On the third snap of the game, Stachitas looked left and found nobody open. So he tucked it under and ran to the right, juking past defensive lineman Keyadd Miller and dashing down the sideline for his first career touchdown, giving Wake Forest a 7-0 lead less than 90 seconds into the season. “Usually, when you roll out one way, you’re not supposed to go back the other way,” Stachitas said. “But I kind of got lucky.” Adams scored Wake Forest’s second touchdown one possession later, and Frye made it 21-0 later in the first quarter. He jumped in front of Anderico Bailey, picked off Miley’s pass and raced untouched into the end zone for the safety’s second touchdown of his career. His TD off an interception in last year’s finale at Duke was the Demon Deacons’ lone defensive score of a disappointing 2009. “He played like a guy that’s got a lot behind him and wants to go out and play well,” Grobe said. associated press They added two more defensive Wake Forest running back Josh adams scored a touchdown in the first quarter against presbyterian. points in the third quarter.

UNC’s reputation takes a hit BY AARON BEARD Associated Press

CHAPEL HILL — The NCAA investigation hovering over North Carolina’s football program has frustrated everyone at the university from administrators to alumni. The probe initially focused on whether two players received improper benefits from agents, but its expansion into possible academic violations that could sideline numerous players for this weekend’s opener against LSU has embarrassed the university. “It gets at the heart of what we stand for,” athletic director Dick Baddour said. “It gives me grave concerns. And it comes in an area where we’ve taken great pride, not only in the achievement of our student-athletes, but in the support program we have.” The investigation overshadows everything. Coach Butch Davis is on the verge of reviving the downtrodden program. The No. 18 Tar Heels looked ready to contend for an ACC and had locked up a highprofile opener against the No. 21 Tigers in Atlanta this weekend. But all anyone is talking about is the probe. Investigators first visited the campus in July to look into whether defensive tackle Marvin Austin and receiver Greg Little received improper benefits from agents. Then, last week, the school announced that it was also looking into potential academic misconduct involving a tutor. Davis suspended Austin on Wednesday for violating team rules, while the school is conferring with the NCAA about whether an unspecified number of players should be cleared to play Saturday. It’s a violation to travel with ineligible players, so Baddour said the school wouldn’t take a chance with a player whose status is in doubt when the team leaves today. “We are certainly anxiously awaiting word on a number of players,” Baddour said. On Thursday afternoon, Davis refused to say how many players

were in jeopardy of missing the game. The coaches “have asked our players to stay focused, come to practice, watch film, try to create as normal as an environment as possible,” Davis said. “With all the rumors and the speculation and all those things that have hovered around for the better part of six to seven weeks, I think our kids have done a good DAVIS job. “They’ve put everything in perspective, they’ve come to practice during training camp and they’ve worked hard.” As if the football issues weren’t enough, the latest developments are causing consternation for a school that is sensitive to protecting its academic reputation. “It does shake us more,” said Jack Evans, a former longtime faculty athletics representative and part of the university’s investigation into the academics issues. “Because we start by saying this is a public university that is committed to providing education for the students that come here, that it’s committed to serving the people of the state. ... Something like this is disturbing. It’s unsettling.” That message has clearly reached Davis, who opened Monday’s weekly news conference by saying program and school integrity was more important than any game. The program’s Academic Progress Rate, released by the NCAA in June, is in the middle of the ACC and is higher than the average among Bowl Subdivision schools. Chancellor Holden Thorp said he believes Davis is “just as embarrassed as I am, that he’s just as sad about what has happened.” He also said he received numerous e-mails — a handful of angry ones, but mostly supportive — from alumni who want the school to protect its academic reputation before anything else.

Source: Little won’t travel Associated Press

A person with knowledge of the decision says UNC receiver Greg Little won’t travel to Atlanta for the 18th-ranked Tar Heels’ opener against No. 21 LSU. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the ongoing NCAA probe at the school is confidential. Investigators visited the campus in July initially focused on whether Little and defensive tackle Marvin Austin received improper benefits from agents.

“I think that’s why this is such a big deal for us because that’s been a huge part of our message and brand,” Thorp said, “and it still is.” Thorp said he has reviewed the school’s academic support program, which employs 25 tutors and about 25 mentors who help student-athletes with issues such as time-management skills. They receive training that includes NCAA compliance as well as the school’s honor code. Tutors and mentors then must sign a pledge to follow NCAA and school academic policies, then a testimonial that they didn’t break any rules at the end of each year. The school has been investigating whether the tutor in question had contact with other sports at the school, though Baddour said she didn’t work with any players in the men’s basketball program. “I think everybody’s signed something, everybody’s heard the right Powerpoints,” Thorp said. “That’s not going to be the thing that’s going to move it. It’s going to be the day-to-day reminders that say, ‘These are the expectations.’ I think when you’re getting ready for big games and you’re thinking about the future and you’re 21 years old, you just need to be reminded about that pretty frequently.”

Gamecocks rout Southern Miss Associated Press

COLUMBIA, S.C. — Quarterback Stephen Garcia and freshman tailback Marcus Lattimore each ran for two touchdowns in South Carolina’s 41-13 win over Southern Miss on Thursday. Garcia got things started with a 22-yard touchdown run and Lattimore followed with first-half scores of 3 and 7 yards. Sophomore Alshon Jeffery had 106 receiving yards and freshman Ace Sanders had a 53-yard rush — the Gamecocks’ longest in four years — to set up Lattimore’s first score. Even freshman backup passer Connor Shaw came through, connecting with D.L. Moore for a 15-yard touchdown pass for South Carolina’s final score. South Carolina scratched two starters — left tackle Jarriel King and cornerback Chris Culliver — right before kickoff, although the athletic department would not say why. No. 13 Miami 45, Florida A&M 0 MIAMI — Jacory Harris looked ready for Miami’s longawaited trip to Ohio State. Harris completed 12 of 15

passes for 210 yards and three touchdowns before sitting out the second half, and the 13th-ranked Hurricanes got their first shutout since 2006. Leonard Hankerson caught the first two of Harris’ TD passes and finished with 115 receiving yards as Miami ran out to a 35-0 lead in the first 25 minutes. Looming for Miami: A trip next Saturday to visit the secondranked Buckeyes, the first meeting between the schools since the 2003 Fiesta Bowl, where Ohio State denied the Hurricanes what would have been their second straight national championship. No. 2 Ohio St. 45, Marshall 7 COLUMBUS, Ohio — It was as if the Rose Bowl never ended for Terrelle Pryor. The Ohio State star tossed three touchdown passes, Brandon Saine ran for 103 yards and two scores and the second-ranked Buckeyes rolled. Pryor completed 17 of 25 passes for 247 yards. He had TDs covering 6 and 11 yards to DeVier Posey and 65 yards to Dane Sanzenbacher. Utah 27, No. 15 Pitt 24 (OT) SALT LAKE CITY — After

being unable to hold an 11-point lead in the fourth quarter, Utah’s defense redeemed itself in OT. Utah freshman Brian Blechen intercepted a pass for on the first play of overtime, setting up Joe Phillips for a 21-yard field goal. Pitt had rallied with 14 points in the fourth quarter, forcing overtime on Dan Hutchins’ 30-yard field goal on the final play. Fla. Atlantic 32, UAB 31 BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Florida Atlantic blocked a potential 28-yard game-winning field goal on the final play to hold off UAB. Alfred Morris scored on a 38-yard run with 2:20 left in the game for the Owls. Indiana 51, Towson 17 BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Darius Willis ran for two touchdowns and Ben Chappell threw for two more — all in the first half. Minnesota 24, M. Tennessee 17 MURFREESBORO, Tenn. — Duane Bennett rushed for a career-high 187 yards and Jon Hoese scored three touchdowns. Rutgers 31, Norfolk State 0 PISCATAWAY, N.J. — Joe Martinek carried 20 times for 109 yards and a touchdown and Tom Savage threw for 148 yards.

Dareus ruled ineligible for two games Associated Press

MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Alabama defensive end Marcell Dareus has been declared ineligible for two games for accepting nearly $2,000 in improper benefits during two trips to Miami. An NCAA ruling Thursday also ordered Dareus, defensive MVP of the national championship game, to pay $1,787 dollars to a charity of his choice before regaining eligibility. The top-ranked Crimson Tide opens Saturday night against San Jose State and then hosts No. 19 Penn State. Alabama will already be without Heisman Trophy winner Mark Ingram (knee injury) for at least the opener.

Cards double up ’Skins

Davis, Crabtree in altercation Associated Press

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Mike Singletary had to separate tight end Vernon Davis and wide receiver Michael Crabtree after the players got into a heated discussion at practice Wednesday. Singletary didn’t provide details about the incident, but said it was non-football related and is closed. He met with both players immediately in the locker room and they returned to practice separately. “How many of you guys have families?” Singletary said to reporters. “You mind raising your hands? You scared to raise your hands? So you have kids and every now and then your kids have some misunderstandings or what have you and they forget that there is a father at home. “I will not talk about the issue. But I will talk about this: They were both wrong.

And we will not have distractions on this team. Vernon just forgot temporarily, and that is not allowed.” Neither Crabtree nor Davis spoke about the incident. Both have been sidelined this preseason because of injuries and Singletary ruled out Davis for Thursday night’s preseason finale against San Diego. Crabtree’s status is uncertain. The second-year receiver is nursing a neck injury and hasn’t addressed it or spoken formally since the start of camp Aug. 1, declining multiple media requests. Yet the 49ers’ website posted a lengthy story quoting him Tuesday afternoon. “I appreciate Vernon speaking from his heart, but it was just wrong,” Singletary said. “But he indeed is every bit the reason why I made him captain. He’s not going to sugarcoat things. He doesn’t know how to sugarcoat

things. But I appreciate what he was striving to do, but it was just wrong.” Davis had developed a reputation for scuffling in training camp, but was determined not to have any issues this year. He’s coming off a Pro Bowl season in which he tied Antonio Gates’ touchdown record by a tight end with 13. The 26-year-old Davis is still a captain. Crabtree has long been known as a diva dating to his Texas Tech days. He was the Niners’ 10th overall pick in the 2009 NFL draft, then didn’t sign until October following a 71-day contract stalemate. Singletary felt the incident between Davis and Crabtree made the 49ers stronger. “We didn’t get better on the field in practice, but we got better as a team,” Singletary said. “There are no elephants in the room. The elephant was exposed.”

pittsburgh quarterback Ben roethlisberger is sacked by eric Moore and derek Landri.

PITTSBURGH FroM 1c “It’s an opportunity, I guess, but it’s unfortunate for Byron for what he went through. But this team has to continue to go forward,” said Dixon, who has started only one NFL game. “I know once he’s going to come back he’s going to give us nothing but tremendous support.” As Dixon talked to reporters, Roethlisberger — leaving the Steelers’ locker room for the last time in at least a month — leaned close and offered words of encouragement. Roethlisberger will meet today with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to learn if his suspension for off-field behavior will be reduced to four games, as expected, or stay at six games. “It’s very tough, kind of emotional,” said Roethlisberger, who cannot practice with the Steelers while suspended. “I’ve just got to go do what I’ve got to do.” Fox knew what he had to do to avoid injury in a meaningless game, and that’s rest his starters. Not only did starting quarterback Matt Moore not play, backup Jimmy Clausen also didn’t get off the bench, and with predictable results. “I think the key was getting our starters ready and healthy,” said Fox, whose team opens Sept. 12 against the Giants. “We didn’t get anybody nicked up and we will be full speed ahead for New York.” Carolina’s offense ended the preseason the way it began it with no touchdowns as No. 3 quarterback Hunter Cantwell (6 of 9, 36 yards) and No. 4 Tony Pike (10 of 18, 44 yards) took all the snaps. The Panthers’ only touchdowns while losing three of four preseason games came from their defense and special teams. “It’s tough from a statistics standpoint, but we know as an offense we can score points,” running back Mike Goodson said. Leftwich (4 of 6, 39 yards) was hurt on an 18-yard completion to Emmanuel Sanders as running back Mewelde Moore and safety Marcus Hudson collided near him with 10:25 remaining in the first half. Leftwich immediately clutched his knee in pain. Leftwich was examined by team doctors on a stretcher behind the Steelers’ bench, then limped into a nearby tunnel that leads to the locker room. As Leftwich was being helped off, Tomlin immediately lifted Dixon, who completed his only pass for a 23-yard touchdown to rookie Emmanuel Sanders. While Carolina’s starters never saw the field, most of Pittsburgh’s regulars played into the second quarter, and there were starters on the field when Leftwich was hurt. Batch, the longtime back-

Batch attempted only four passes. Jeff Reed accounted for most of the scoring with field goals of 33, 43, 31 and 32 yards. Despite opposing Carolina backups, Pittsburgh’s starters went three-and-out and Roethlisberger was knocked off his feet twice during the opening series. Roethlisberger completed passes of 16 yards to Arnaz Battle and 13 to Heath Miller on the second drive before spending the rest of the game wearing a ballcap turned backward and a towel

around his neck. Nearly six months ago, there was considerable speculation how Roethlisberger would be received by Steelers fans upset with his behavior. As it turned out, there were merely shrugs the first time he took the field in Pittsburgh. With Heinz Field barely half-filled, there was no reaction when Roethlisberger led the offense onto the field. Just as during training camp fans appear to be focusing on the upcoming season rather than the quarterback’s off-field behavior. Asked if it will be tough watching on TV, Roethlisberger said, “Absolutely.”

GLENDALE, Ariz. — With the controversy swirling ahead of him on the Arizona quarterback depth chart, Max Hall wrapped up his preseason with a big night. The undrafted rookie from BYU completed 7 of 9 passes for 126 yards and scored on a 6-yard run in the Cardinals’ 20-10 victory Thursday night over Washington. Hall directed Arizona to two TDs and a field goal in his three possessions. Derek Anderson, starting for the second week ahead of Matt Leinart, played a series, completing 2 of 3 for 47 yards. Leinart played the next two, going 3 of 5 for 14 yards. Leinart, expected to replace the retired Kurt Warner when training camp began, started the first two preseason games. A week ago, though, coach Ken Whisenhunt made the surprising announcement that Anderson would start against the Bears in Chicago. Both quarterbacks threw touchdown passes in that game, won by Arizona 14-9. After practice Monday, Leinart complained to reporters that he had outplayed Anderson and didn’t know what else he could do to deserve the starting job. He said the problem with Whisenhunt is “probably away from football.” That led to a meeting Tuesday between the disgruntled quarterback and coach and a flurry of reports that the Cardinals were making calls about possible trades for Leinart and might even release the former Heisman Trophy winner. Rams 27, Ravens 21 ST. LOUIS — Top overall draft pick Sam Bradford made another favorable impression, going 6 for 6 for 68 yards and a touchdown for St. Louis. A.J. Feeley’s thumb injury gave Bradford his starting shot last week, and the rookie may have done enough to get the nod in the opener against Arizona. The Ravens (3-1) held out all of their starters, plus backup quarterback Marc Bulger in his return to St. Louis after getting released by the Rams (3-1) in April, denying fans a shot to either cheer or boo a player who was the starter from 2003-09. Vikings 31, Broncos 24 MINNEAPOLIS — Denver rookie Tim Tebow outplayed Minnesota’s Tarvaris Jackson in the backup quarterback comparison, but the Vikings forced four first-half turnovers and beat the Broncos. Tebow fumbled his first snap, Erin Henderson found the ball and scooted into the end zone from 35 yards out for the Vikings. The 2007 Heisman Trophy winner and firstround draft pick from Florida then threw a wobbler over the middle that Tyrell Johnson easily intercepted and returned for 41 yards to set up a field goal. Tebow was 12 for 16 for 167 yards and one touchdown and also ran for 21 yards on four carries. His favorite target was Matthew Willis, who caught five passes for 122 yards and a score. Minnesota native Eric Decker had 10 catches for 114 yards. The Vikings held out 20 of their 22 starters. Brett Favre watched in a T-shirt, shorts and sneakers. Giants 20, Patriots 17 EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Rhett Bomar may have nailed down the job as New York’s backup quarterback, throwing a 60yard scoring pass to Duke Calhoun with 1:49 to play as the Giants rallied to beat New England. The winning score came just minutes after Darnell Jenkins put the Patriots ahead 17-12 by catching a short pass from Brian Hoyer and turning it into a 66-yard scoring play with one move and a burst of speed. The good news for the teams, both 2-2 in exhibition play, was they came out the preseason finale relatively healthy. Jets 21, Eagles 17 PHILADELPHIA — Michael Vick led Philadelphia to a field goal in two series in his first start in four years, and Kurt Coleman scored on two fumble returns, but New York (2-2) beat Philadelphia (2-2). Mark Brunell’s 51-yard touchdown pass to former Pittsburgh Super Bowl MVP Santonio Holmes in the fourth quarter put the Jets ahead to stay. Neither team used its starters. Kevin Kolb and New York’s Mark Sanchez watched from the sideline while backups saw plenty of action. Cowboys 27, Dolphins 25 ARLINGTON, Texas — David Buehler

kicked a 31-yard field goal as time expired, lifting Dallas (3-2) past Miami (2-2). The kick capped a convincing night for Buehler, who handled only kickoffs as a rookie last season. He also made field goals of 51, 45 and 40 yards. Third-string quarterback Stephen McGee played the entire game for Dallas. He threw a 43-yard touchdown pass to Sam Hurd against Miami’s starters, then led the winning drive in the final 2 minutes. Titans 27, Saints 24 NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Alvin Pearman had a 5-yard touchdown run with 3:18 left to help Tennessee (2-2) beat Super Bowl champion New Orleans (2-2). Vince Young threw a scoring pass, and LeGarrette Blount also ran for a score. The Saints’ Harry Coleman recovered the ball off the first of two blocked punts for a TD, and Chase Daniel had a 35-yard TD pass to Adrian Arrington. Daniel tried to pull out the victory, but his pass to Tyler Lorenzen was intercepted by Gerald McRath in the final seconds. Browns 13, Bears 10 CLEVELAND — Montario Hardesty, Cleveland’s highly touted rookie running back whose career at Tennessee was slowed by knee injuries, hurt his left one in the second quarter of the Browns’ victory. Fellow rookie Colt McCoy got his first pro start and went 13 of 13 for 131 yards in twoplus quarters. The former Texas star fumbled his first snap, but finally showed some potential in easily his best performance for the Browns (2-2). Todd Collins, recently signed by Chicago to back up Jay Cutler, completed 10 of 15 for 139 yards and a 15-yard TD pass to tight end Greg Olsen for the Bears (0-4). Bengals 30, Colts 28 INDIANAPOLIS — Cedric Peerman had a 93-yard touchdown run in the third quarter, and reserve Jordan Palmer — starter Carson Palmer’s brother — completed 10 of 14 passes for 115 yards and two touchdowns for Cincinnati (3-2). Colts quarterback Peyton Manning didn’t play, and most of Indy’s starters took the night off. Curtis Painter got the start and completed nine of 20 passes for 114 yards. Tom Brandstater was 10 of 18 for 177 yards and three TDs, all to Brandon James. Indianapolis was 0-4 in the preseason. Chiefs 17, Packers 13 KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Matt Cassel and Brodie Croyle each led touchdown drives and Kansas City (1-3) won for the first time in the preseason since 2008. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers and a host of other Green Bay starters didn’t suit up for the final tuneup. Backup Matt Flynn played into the third quarter, completing 23 of 37 passes for 304 yards. The Packers were 2-2 in exhibition play. Buccaneers 24, Texans 17 HOUSTON — Rudy Carpenter threw two TD passes to Arrelious Benn, and Corey Lynch returned one of his two interceptions 91 yards for a score to help Tampa Bay (2-2) beat Houston (1-3). Carpenter completed 15 of 22 passes for 203 yards and played into the fourth quarter. Tampa Bay rested starter Josh Freeman and backup Josh Johnson. Houston backup Dan Orlovsky started and threw both interceptions to Lynch. Thirdstringer John David Booty played the second half and threw touchdown passes to Bobby Williams and Derek Fine. Booty completed 17 of 37 passes for 209 yards. Lions 28, Bills 23 DETROIT — Third-stringer Drew Stanton threw a pair of second-half touchdown passes for Detroit after Matthew Stafford had an interception returned for a touchdown. Stafford’s second pass was picked off by Drayton Florence and Detroit (3-1) punted on his second and last drive. Buffalo’s Trent Edwards was 4 for 4 for 66 yards — including a 50-yard pass to Lee Evans — on his only drive to set up the first of Rian Lindell’s three field goals. The Bills finished the preseason 2-2. Jaguars 13, Falcons 9 JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Fullback Brock Bolen scored on a 16-yard run, and Josh Scobee kicked two field goals for Jacksonville (2-2). Jacksonville’s Luke McCown filled in for David Garrard and completed 5 of 12 passes for 39 yards. Chris Redman, starting in place of Matt Ryan for Atlanta (2-2), completed 15 of 22 passes for 142 yards.
