Fire officials say response went as planned BY SHELLEY SMITH

When fire broke out at the Webb Road Flea Market on Sept. 3, more than 180 firefighters and other emergency personnel responded. Mike Zimmerman, incident commander and chief of Bostian Heights Fire Department, said the response went exactly as planned. Emergency responders followed Zimmerman’s response plan correctly, he said, and the plan is something he’s been updating since the Salisbury Millwork fire in 2008 claimed the lives of two firefighters. After the Salisbury Millwork fire, all Rowan County fire departments rethought their plans for structures within their jurisdictions. Zimmerman said he’s upgraded the response plan for the Webb Road Flea Market for his department at least twice since the Millwork fire. “I’ve done a lot since the mill fire to increase some responses,” he said, noting that 18 fire departments responded to the blaze. “I

It’s one of those things that’s never ending.” Zimmerman said plans also change because mutual aid departments are constantly changToday’s forecast 85º/58º Cloudy, foggy

going to be rushing to leave to get out of there. “The flea market has a lot of people in a small area. You put that amount of people in cars in that acreage, and there’s nowhere for them to go.” Frank Thomason, emergency services director for Rowan County, agreed that the two fires were completely different. “All the emergency service agencies in the county, we are all continually either as a group or individually, we continue to look for better ways to do things, more efficient ways to do things, and we are looking at those trends,” Thomason said. “The exercises and drills that we have throughout every year are ways that we test our responses. And we have those exercises to show us (how we can improve).” Because Zimmerman knew no one was inside the flea market at the time of the fire, and because the fire was very aggressive, firefighters took a defensive approach.

The leader of a conservative activist group that launched a new Lutheran denomination two weeks ago spoke Saturday at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church. The Rev. Mark Chavez, director of the Lutheran Coalition of Renewal, drew nearly 200 people from more than a dozen Lutheran churches. In response to mainline Lutheran acceptance of gay clergy and other practices viewed as immoral, Chavez’s organization last month created the North American Lutheran Church, a fledgling denomination of churches formerly affiliated with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. “There will be a steady departure of churches from the ELCA,” Chavez said. By far the largest Lutheran denomination in the United States with 10,239 churches, the ELCA angered many when delegates voted to allow noncelibate gays to be pastors. Nearly 200 congregations have left the ELCA, and 136 more are on their way out. A 1,700-member congregation in Iowa was two votes shy of ending its affiliation. St. Paul’s Lutheran was one of the first North Carolina churches to leave, the Rev. William Ketchie said. “The congregation had a sense of relief when we left the ELCA because we’ve been fighting this for many years,” Ketchie said. “There is a new sense of peace in the congregation.”


Tears, songs fill day of remembrance NEW YORK (AP) — Rites of remembrance and loss marked the ninth anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, familiar in their sorrow but observed for the first time Saturday in a nation torn over the prospect of a mosque near ground zero and the role of Islam in society. Under a flawless blue sky that called to mind the day itself, there were tears and song, chants, and the waving of hundreds of American flags. Loved ones recited the names of the victims, as they have each year since the attacks. They looked up to add personal messages to the Firefighters’ lost and down to place memorial among flowers in a reflecting local sites holding pool in their honor. ceremonies, 3A For a few hours Saturday morning, the political and cultural furor over whether a proposed Islamic center and mosque belongs two blocks from the World Trade Center site mostly gave way to the somber anniversary ceremony and pleas from elected officials for religious tolerance. But this Sept. 11 was unmistakably different. Within hours of the city’s memorial service near ground zero, groups of protesters had taken up positions in lower Manhattan, blocks apart and representing both sides of the debate over a mosque. Near City Hall, supporters of the mosque toted signs that read, “The attack on Islam is racism” and “Tea Party bigots funded by corporate $.” Opponents carried placards that read, “It stops here” and “Never forgive, never forget, no WTC mosque.” At the other Sept. 11 attack sites, as at ground zero, elected leaders sought to remind Americans of the acts of heroism in 2001 and the national unity that followed.

PLANNED FROM 1a “We went defensive pretty much on the get-go,” he said. “Our goal had been from day one, that if the building was on fire, find a way to cut it off and stop it. “It blew by us before we could get in place. We didn’t have a chance. About 80 percent of that building was burning when we got on scene, and there was so much force in the fire.” Zimmerman said someone told him the fire was burning a building a minute. And, he said, it would have been a “nightmare” if the fire would have happened on a weekend. “I can visualize it,” he said. “We would have been sitting a half mile away because we wouldn’t have been able to get in. People would be inside either trying to get out or trying to save stuff. “I could see cars going everywhere, people hitting each other — everyone just bottlenecking. We could have had all kinds of possibilities out there.” Zimmerman said that over the years when he responded to medical calls, he thought about a fire hitting. “When I go out there, I go in looking around thinking about what would happen during a fire,” he said. “This was always in the back of my mind. “I’m so thankful it happened when it did and that nobody was there. It would have been chaos. It would have been a disaster.” The Salisbury Fire Depart-

ment received new radios, locators and thermal imaging cameras after the mill fire, and Zimmerman said Bostian Heights and other departments have similar equipment. Thomason said although the flea market fire response “went extremely well,” he is sure the departments and responding agencies will find ways of tweaking things. “We’re always very cognizant of the way the operation goes,” he said. “We look back.” Both Thomason and Zimmerman are very grateful for the county’s departments, and everyone who volunteered their time to help during and after the fire. “We are very blessed in Rowan County with the number of fire departments that we have,” Thomason said, “and the resources that we have.” “I’m so pleased with the county, with the support we had,” Zimmerman said. “It was unbelievable. “I’ve been in the fire service for 34 years and this is the largest scale operation I’ve been involved with. To be able to pump 4,000 gallons a minute — that’s remarkable in itself.” Zimmerman called Rowan County “blessed” to have the equipment it has and the excellent training the firefighters and responders receive. “The water point operations and water hauling — we’ve trained on that for years,” he said. “And it showed last Friday.” The Webb Road Flea Market fire began around 7:30 a.m. and firefighters fought the flames for five hours, us-

ing 900,000 gallons of water — “The most I’ve ever been involved with in the history of Bostian Heights Fire Department,” Zimmerman said. Thankfully no one was injured, Zimmerman said. “If we can leave a scene, and no one was hurt, and no equipment was damaged, we had a good day,” he said.

With free Krispy Kreme doughnuts and coffee delivered by volunteers from Catawba College, vendors sold their wares and wandered around, checking out set-ups by friends and competitors.

Anniversary of 9/11 attacks

WAyne HinSHAW/For tHe SALiSBUry PoSt

Monte Quillman of the honor guard salutes the flag at the 9/11 Fallen Heroes Memorial Service at the firefighter’s memorial at Chestnut Hill Cemetery.

Nine years after terrorist attack, people gather to reflect, remember BY HUGH FISHER

A wreath was placed beneath a United States flag flying at half-staff. The notes of “Amazing Grace” played, as men and women stood and reflected. In Salisbury, at the firefighters’ memorial by the Chestnut Hill Cemetery, the ninth anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks was a time to reflect on the lives lost on that fateful day. And it was a time to recall the sacrifices that continue to be made by those who dedicate their lives, and sometimes lay down their lives, to keep Americans safe. Honor guards made up of police officers, sheriff’s deputies and firefighters took part in the presentation of the flag. The annual ceremony at Chestnut Hill was one of several observances around Rowan County paying tribute to the 2,977 innocent men and women who died as a result of the attacks in New York, Pennsylvania and Washington, D.C. Youths, firefighters and spectators taking part in the annual Junior Fire Muster at Miller’s Ferry Volunteer Fire Department paid tribute to the victims of 9/11 before the morning’s events began. At noon, the Rowan County chapter of the Disabled American Veterans was scheduled to hold another public observance at the Salisbury Mall. Remembrances of 9/11 take on an added significance when the thousands of U.S. troops who’ve died fighting in the War on Terror are taken into account. Salisbury Mayor Susan Kluttz said she hoped all citizens would take the time to remember those who died on Sept. 11, 2001. “I’m here to speak for them (the people), to

A large crowd gathered for the 9/11 Fallen Heroes Memorial Service. thank the EMS, firefighters and law enforcement for what they do,” Kluttz said. She also spoke of the courage of emergency services personnel here at home, especially firefighters Victor Isler and Justin Monroe. They died in the line of duty on March 7, 2008. “This reminds us of the sacrifices our emergency personnel continue to make for us,” Kluttz said. Salisbury Fire Chief Bob Parnell brought a vivid reminder of the events of that day: a piece

of the steel structure of the World Trade Center. It was given to him by New York firefighters during a visit to the lower Manhattan site. This was the first time he’s brought it to a 9/11 memorial service. After the ceremony, people held the metal briefly, cradling it in their hands. “I hope (locals) remember the sacrifices the emergency services have made from Sept. 11, 2001 onward,” Parnell said.

“We pray for those families who were permanently affected.” And, for those who work saving lives closer to home, Parnell said it was important for locals to reach out and thank them for their bravery and dedication. “There’s plenty of chance for people to shake their hands,” Parnell said. “That same sacrifice could be made again, any day, that was made on Sept. 11.” Remembering the events of that dark day becomes even more important now that most of a decade has passed. Children who were just old enough to remember the attacks are now teenagers, and Sept. 11 takes on a whole new meaning for them. Chasity Comer, a member of the Salisbury Police Explorers post, grew up in a unique family. Members of the Explorer post took part in the ceremony. Her father, Wayne Comer, is a Spencer police officer and a member of the Spencer Fire Department, she said. Sept. 11, she said, reminds us of the hard work and dedication of firefighters and police officers — “knowing that we’re safe because of them.” Joseph Scrip, assistant commander of the Salisbury Police Explorers, said that 9/11 would forever be a part of the nation’s history. “We need to learn as much as we can about it,” Scrip said, “and honor those who lost their lives.” Local residents Bob and Colleen Morris, who moved to Salisbury from Tampa, Fla., five years ago, said that Saturday was a day of sadness and remembrance. “But I look at these young people, and I realize that there is hope for our future,” Colleen said.

Travel Associates leaves downtown after dispute over signage BY EMILY FORD

After a dispute over signage and a shared lobby, a travel agency is leaving downtown and moving to Concord. Travel Associates has been on the Square for 18 years inside the Plaza, a building owned by the city.

The e-mail also suggests watching for new development on the corner. Wilcoxson is the only employee at Travel Associates, which had

five agents at one time. Although the lease was not renewed, Travel Associates could have stayed in the Plaza on a month-to-month basis, said Randy Hemann, executive director for Downtown Salisbury. The city contracts with Downtown Salisbury to act as the leasing agent for the Plaza.

Hemann said he has no one to fill the vacancy. Travel Associates has shared the 1,200-square-foot location — and the rent — with F&M Bank since the bank installed an ATM machine outside the Plaza in 2003. In a gentleman’s agreement, F&M rents half the space inside the building, including an office, break

room and half the lobby, although the bank has never staffed the location with an employee. Hemann last year prepared a formal lease, which would have given F&M a voice in the appearance of the lobby.

Landis Town Board to meet BY SHAVONNE POTTS

LANDIS — The Landis Town Board will discuss a hazard mitigation plan, which other boards have talked about also. The plan includes guidelines for natural hazards that may occur and how emergency personnel and municipalities will respond to them. It is a multi-jurisdictional plan that has to be updated every five years to qualify for mitigation grants and disaster assistance funding. The federal government mandates that a plan be submitted. Rowan County Emergency Services Director Frank Thomason is informing other municipalities of this plan.

The board will also discuss: • A recycling program for local businesses. The town already has a successful residential recycling program, which got underway in August. • Discuss the renewable energy fees. The board meets Monday at 7 p.m., at town hall, 312 S. Main St.

Firefighters enter the house that was on fire Saturday at 608 Maupin Ave. No one was injured.

Kitchen fire damages Maupin Avenue house When Judy Newman noticed smoke coming from her neighbor’s house Saturday evening, she called to her husband. Hank Newman ran two doors down to 608 Maupin Ave. with a fire extinguisher, entered through the back door and sprayed the stove, which was ablaze. “I thought I put the thing out,” Newman said. But the fire flared up again and Newman, his fire extinguisher empty, left as the house filled with smoke. Cleo Dick and her daughter, Janice Blackwell, escaped without injury. Blackwell said she moved to Salisbury a year ago to help care for her mother, who lost her husband, Bob Dick, two years ago. Cleo Dick was cooking at the stove when it caught fire, Blackwell said.

inate confusion over numerous groups and abbreviations. While the names and acronyms of a half-dozen Lutheran organizations rolled off Chavez’s tongue for two hours, many people are having a hard time keeping up. And deciding where to send their check. “How long are we going to be able to sustain all these organizations?” asked the Rev. Floyd Bost, former pastor at St. Paul’s. Chavez acknowledged the confusion. There will be multiple Lutheran organizations for several years, he predicted, but eventually some will merge and the way will become clear. “This is not an easy time,” he said.

St. Paul’s is now considering affiliating with the new North American Lutheran Church, he said. So far, 28 congregations have joined the new denomination, Chavez said, and the staff of 10 has been flooded with e-mails and phone calls. Lutheran Coalition of Renewal launched the new church when it became clear they couldn’t change the ELCA, he said. The mainline Lutheran church is headed the same direction as the United Church of Christ and the Episcopal Church, Chavez said, which teach that “God is love” and “everyone is welcome just the way you are.” Contact Emily Ford at 704These churches embrace, 797-4264. preach and teach a false gospel, while churches like St. Paul’s “do what we ought to do as Christians,” he said. “Hold the line and make our core values clear.” The creation of a new church has drawn more attention than expected, Chavez said, with special interest from Lutherans in Africa. The Roman Catholic Church also is closely following the transition, he said. The new church comes “at a time when our culture is taking a very determined and forceful stand against a biblical world view,” he said. The culture denies a belief in absolute truth, and the ELCA has conformed to the culture by allowing “idolatry of the self,” Chavez said. “We become the ultimate authority in all things.” Questions from the audience focused on church leadership. If an ELCA congregation would not call a lesbian or homosexual pastor, why should the members consider affiliating with the North American Lutheran Church, one man asked. Whether a pastor is homosexual is “trivial” compared to what the pastor will preach and teach, Chavez said. What lies beneath the ELCA’s acceptance of gay clergy and gay marriage “is • Floral Designs for the Complete Wedding an explicit rejection of Christian faith,” he said. • Balloon Designs, Arches, Spirals, Chavez predicted there will Columns and more be a “glut” of pastors available to serve congregations that leave the mainline church and affiliate with the North American Lutheran Church.

Think Outside of the

Wedding Favor

Most couples plan to thank guests for attending their weddings by issuing favors at the end of the festivities. Being creative and tying the favor into the theme of the wedding are creative ways to show you care. Wedding favors can be anything the couple desires. Throughout the years there have been some favor standards that many couples fall back on when they’re short on ideas. Matchbooks printed with the wedding date, Jordan almonds wrapped in tulle, drink stirrers, and candles are all classic favor options. If you desire something unique, consider these options. • Candy: Skip the almonds and go for something guests are sure to enjoy ... chocolate. Custom engrave chocolate bars to feature your wedding date information and your names. Or how about setting up a candy bar where guests can fill up their own goodie bags with favorite treats?

• Useful tools: Instead of the drink stirrers or coaster sets that will end up collecting dust, think about household items guests can really use. What about an ice cream scooper so memories of your wedding will always be sweet? Who doesn’t love to barbecue? A barbecue sauce basting set will be a grill-side must. Depending on budget, you also can choose ice buckets, an engraved napkin holder or a picnic basket filled with picnic essentials.


• Plants: Send guests home with something they can plant, whether flower seeds, seedlings or a small houseplant. As your love grows, so will the plants in every guest’s home.

• Fun ideas: Having a beach wedding? Custom-print labels for lip balm or sunscreen. Winter brides and grooms may add a tag to earmuffs or scarves that give the wedding date details. If you love a particular musical artist, give guests a CD with favorite songs.

• Let them eat cake: Inquire whether your baker can make miniature wedding cakes in the likeness of your larger one. Then everyone can take home a replica. • Personalized photo: One of the easiest ways for guests to remember your wedding is to have a photo reminder. Engraved frames with a photo of the happy couple will be classic gifts. ♥

poured two containers of salt on the flames to no avail and then forced her mother to leave the house, she said. Firefighters were still working in the house at 6:30 p.m. and had not determined the extent of damage, Salisbury Fire Department Battalion Chief Currie Butler said. The blaze was contained to the kitchen, Butler said. Firefighters were conducting salvage operations, covering furniture and forcing smoke from the home. Locke and Granite Quarry departments also responded. Located in the Fulton Heights neighborhood, the fire brought many residents to their sidewalks and front porches. A group of neighbors encircled Dick and Blackwell, and plans were under way to line up meals and donate clothing. “We’ll take care of her,” neighbor Pat Marsh said.

Sadie and Jack Russell terrier ready for good homes The Rowan County Animal Shelter has several animals waiting to be adopted and taken to a good home. Dog: Just a little ball of energy that’s full of affection is the best way to describe this female Jack Russell terrier. She arrived at the shelter as a stray so we do not have any further background information about her. We estimate her to be 2-3 years old. Cat: She is spayed, she is declawed, she is 3 years old and she is free to adopt. Her name is Sadie. When her owners could no longer afford to care for her they had to surrender her to the shelter. From rescued animals to those abandoned by owners who couldn’t afford them, and all others in between, the Animal Shelter has them all. Adoption fees are $70, a

down payment for spay/neuter costs. The voucher can be used at any veterinarian’s office. Before adopting any animal, a person must agree to take the pet to a veterinarian for an exam and spaying/neutering.

SC man charged after shooting deer decoy A South Carolina man used a spotlight early Saturday morning to freeze a deer and then shoot it, authorities say. The “deer” turned out to be a decoy, apparently planted by wildlife resource agents to deter the illegal practice of lighting deer at night to get an easy

shot. Andrew Scott Allison, 18, of Inman, S.C., is charged with night deer hunting and using false information to obtain a hunting license. The incident occurred in Rowan County. It wasn’t clear if a gun or crossbow was used to shoot the decoy.

BBB issues warning about 2012 Olympics scam The Better Business Bureau warns people to be on the lookout for e-mails that proclaim you have won tickets to the 2012 Olympics in London. Although the e-mail may look real, you have NOT won tickets to the Olympics. Every big event brings scammers out of the woodwork and the BBB is now seeing one of the first scams related to the 2012 Olympics which will be held in London. “This is yet another phishing scam,� said BBB President Tom Bartholomy. “All the scammers are doing is using a new ‘hook’ to lure you into giving them your personal information so they can steal your identity.� This phishing scam uses the U.K. National Lottery logo so that the e-mail looks legitimate. The bait is the prize announcement that “you are one of ten people who won a lot-

tery for tickets to the Olympics in London in 2012.� The trick is that real tickets to the 2012 Olympics will in fact be given away through the National Lottery, and they will also be sold through a ticket lottery system. So, this scam is similar enough to the actual ticket distribution system that it can fool you into thinking it may be real and get you to call or click on the links contained in the e-mail. If you call the number provided, you will be asked for enough personal information for the scammers to steal your identity. You may also be asked for a credit card number to pay taxes or fees to claim your “prize.� If you click on the links in the scam e-mail, your computer will almost certainly be infected with malware or spyware viruses that can

help the scammers find enough information on your computer hard drive to steal your identity. “It happens every day,â€? Bartholomy added. The BBB has some simple advice to keep you safe: • If you did not enter a lottery or contest, you did not win it. • NEVER click on links contained in e-mails you receive from someone you don’t know, even if the e-mail looks real. • NEVER give out personal information over the telephone or online to someone you don’t know. • Make sure your computer has up to date, anti-virus software because new scams are created every day. • When in doubt, check it out with the BBB.

R&B pioneer King Coleman dies in Miami; was 78 MIAMI (AP) — Carlton “King� Coleman, a pioneer in American rhythm and blues, died Saturday morning from heart failure at a Miami hospice, his son said. He was 78. Coleman was known for providing the lead vocals on the 1959 hit “(Do The) Mashed Potatoes,� recorded with James Brown’s band. According to a 2003 Miami New Times article, Brown had initially planned to do the vocals himself, but a dispute with his record label made that impossible. To avoid any lawsuits from Brown’s label, a Miami producer had Coleman sing on the mostly instrumental track, while the group officially credited with the song was “Nat

for Wake Forest (2-0, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference), which posted the first consecutive 50-point games in school history and won the secondhighest-scoring game in league history. “As a football coach, your worst nightmare is when you get into those shootouts,” Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe said. “Your comfort zone’s around your defense being stingy, and so I think it was a great TV game. If you’re sitting at home watching it, you’re loving it because that score keeps going up.” Wake Forest outgained the Blue Devils 500-487. During

Things never change e didn’t expect much from winless Livingstone Saturday night — and we received even less. The Blue Bears have never been much of a match for Catawba in what has become an anual public flogDAVID ging. But SHAW raise your hand if you thought LC would master the art of self-destruction and suffer a 59-8 wipeout at Alumni Stadium. “Not me,” first-year coach Elvin James said outside the shell-shocked Livingstone dressing room. “I didn’t see this coming at all.” Who did? This game was 21-0 before they turned the lights on, fueled by a 65-yard fumble return for a touchdown and a 25-yard interception return for another score 90 seconds later. When Catawba’s Brandon Bunn hauled in a 12-yard TD pass late in the opening quarter, the guests had a 28-0 lead and four end zone appearances in less than seven minutes. And that, ladies and gentlemen, was more head-spinning than The Exorcist. “This team right here,” starting quarterback Curtis Edens said after the drilling was finished. “This team beat itself. I don’t blame anybody. I blame every-

Catawba routs Blue Bears Livingstone was down 49-0 at halftime BY MIKE LONDON

Livingstone finally scored against Catawba with 3:39 remaining Catawba 59 when linebacker Bryan AyLivingstone 8 coth crashed through to record a safety. Wilson Cherry, Livingstone’s long-time public address announcer, is famous for the resounding, throaty growl he emits whenever the Blue Bears score, but this time he declined the opportunity. “Sorry, not gonna growl about a safety to make it 59-2,” Cherry explained. Livingstone didn’t make any noise, growls

or otherwise, at Alumni Stadium on Saturday. Catawba was comfortably ahead 49-0 at halftime and cruised 59-8. The Indians scored four TDs on defense. Catawba SID Jim Lewis wasn’t sure if that had ever happened before in the school’s long football history, but it’s a certainty it hasn’t happened frequently. If you laid a pregame bet on Catawba backup outside linebacker Jacob Hanes to be the Mayor’s Cup game’s leading scorer, you won a billion dollars. Hanes took two interceptions to the house. He edged Catawba kicker Thomas Trexler, who had eight PATS and a wayne hinshaw/SALISBURY POST


Homeboy Hamlin wins BY JENNA FRYER Associated Press

RICHMOND, Va. — Denny Hamlin went from last to first to the top seed in NASCAR’s race for the Sprint Cup championship. Hamlin snapped a monthlong slump Saturday night with another win at Richmond International Raceway, his home track, by holding off Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Kyle Busch in a dominating victory. It was Hamlin’s series-best sixth win of the season and pushed him past four-time defending champion Jimmie Johnson for the top seed in the Chase. The points were reset

Giants open new $1.6 billion stadium against Carolina BY TOM CANAVAN Associated Press


See RACE, 3B Denny Hamlin celebrates.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The Carolina Panthers have a nasty habit of spoiling high-profile games for the New York Giants. When New York got to the playoffs in 2005 for the first time under Tom Coughlin, the Panthers came north and made them looking ordinary in a 23-0 shutout. And just nine months ago, Carolina ruined New York’s final game in Giants Stadium and knocked them out of the playoff race in the process with an embarrassing 41-9 win on Dec. 27. The Panthers will get another shot at playing the spoiler role today when they face

New York in the Giants’ first regular-season NFL game at their new $1.6 billion, 82,500seat stadium. “A win period sets the tone,” said Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams, who rushed for 1,117 last season. “This will be a big game. The way we finished out last year against this team, and to open up a new stadium against this team, they haven’t forgotten what happened to them last year. “They were fighting for a playoff berth and we kind of came in and spoiled it for them a little bit,” Williams added. The Giants are well aware of the recent history this game carries with it.

Padres remain in first Associated Press

SAN DIEGO — Tim Stauffer threw six sparkling innings, Yorvit Torrealba homered in the third and the San Diego Padres beat San Francisco 1-0 to stay in first in the NL West. The Padres (80-61) snapped a virtual tie for the top spot in the division. Stauffer, the club’s long reliever, made just his third start of the season. He yielded three hits and pitched out of his only jam in the second. Braves 6, Cards 3 (12) ATLANTA — Alex Gonzalez hit a three-run homer in the 12th inning and the Braves moved into a tie for the NL East lead. The Braves improved their major league-best home record to 51-20. Mets 4, Phillies 3 NEW YORK — Mike Pelfrey was dominant into the eighth to earn his careerhigh 14th victory, and the Mets stopped the Phillies’ four-game winning streak. Marlins 4, Nationals 1 WASHINGTON — Anibal Sanchez remained unbeaten against Washington, allowing four hits in 72⁄3 innings to beat the Nationals for the fifth straight time. Dodgers 6, Astros 3 HOUSTON — Houston reliever Brandon Lyon’s threw away a bunt for a tiebreaking two-run error in a three-run ninth inning. Reds 5, Pirates 4 (10) CINCINNATI — Joey Votto led off the bottom of the 10th with his 33rd homer, sending the Reds to a wild win that extended their NL Central lead to a daunting seven games. Neil Walker’s two-run single past Aroldis Chapman completed Pittsburgh’s rally to a 4-3 lead in the eighth. Joel Hanrahan blew the save chance, giving up a tying double by Chris Heisey in the ninth. Cubs 1, Brewers 0 MILWAUKEE — Ryan Dempster struck out eight in seven crisp innings, earning his 100th career win, and Xavier Nady homered. Rockies 2, D’backs 1 DENVER — Pinch-hitter Jonathan Herrera’s sacrifice fly off Mike Hampton broke a seventh-inning tie. AMERICAN LEAGUE Rays 13, Blue Jays 1 TORONTO — Brad Hawpe hit a grand slam and Wade Davis won his seventh straight decision. Royals 8, White Sox 2 CHICAGO — Kyle Davies pitched six solid innings, and the Royals roughed up Edwin Jackson on their way to 18 hits. Orioles 5, Tigers 3 DETROIT — Adam Jones had four hits and Jeremy Guthrie pitched seven shutout innings. Twins 1, Indians 0 (12) CLEVELAND — Jim Thome hit his 587th homer, passing Hall of Famer Frank Robinson for eighth place on the career list, to lift the Minnesota Twins over the Cleveland Indians in 12 innings. Thome hit a 2-0 pitch from Justin Germano (0-2) into the Cleveland bullpen in center field, snapping the Twins’ 21-inning scoreless streak. It was the only extra-base hit of the game. Both clubs had eight hits. Athletics 4, Red Sox 3 OAKLAND, Calif. — Rajai Davis hit a tiebreaking RBI triple in the seventh inning and Andrew Bailey struck out David Ortiz with the tying run on second to end the game. Adrian Beltre doubled in Victor Martinez with two out in the ninth to get Boston within one, but pinch-hitter Ortiz looked at a called third strike, giving Bailey his 23rd save in 26 opportunities this season. Angels 7, Mariners 4 ANAHEIM, Calif. — Hideki Matsui homered and Torii Hunter had four RBIs to lead the Los Angeles Angels to a victory over Felix Hernandez and Seattle. Ervin Santana (16-9) tied a career high for wins, allowing three runs and five hits over 71⁄3 innings.


U.S. in final vs. Turkey

RACE FROM 1B er field just 30 laps into Saturday night when startand-park driver Jason Leffler called it a night. Biffle was guaranteed a spot in the Chase by finishing 42nd or better. He wound up 32nd. Jeff Gordon will be seeded eighth, the first of five drivers winless this season who will start the Chase 60 points behind Hamlin. Clint Bowyer was the only real driver on the “bubble” at the start of Saturday night, but had a stout car, led 33 laps and finished sixth to grab the final Chase spot. “As happy as I am to make the Chase, I was frustrated with the finish,” Bowyer said. “We were a second place car and made an attempt to pass Denny a couple of times and slipped clear to sixth.” But he never had to worry in a race that lacked the drama of previous years. As the final race of the “regular season,” Richmond has packed a punch since the Chase began in 2004 as a handful of drivers typically vied for one or two spots in the championship field. Jeremy Mayfield won Richmond that first year to grab the final spot, and every season since has been full of storylines of who made it and who missed it. Not so much this year, as Bowyer took a 117-point lead into Saturday night and needed only to avoid catastrophe to earn the last spot in the field. The attention was instead on the 10 drivers who had already clinched their spots and what measures they’d take to grab the final 10 bonus points before the Chase.

Novak Djokovic prevented what would have been the eighth Grand Slam championship match between tennis’ top two men — and first such showdown at Flushing Meadows — by saving two match points and coming back to stun Roger Federer 5-7, 6-1, 5-7, 6-2, 7-5 in Saturday’s semifinals. “One of those matches,” Djokovic said, “you’ll always remember in your career.” It means that the thirdseeded Djokovic will be standing between No. 1 Rafael Nadal and a career Grand Slam in the final Sunday. Nadal owns eight major titles but never had been past the semifinals at the U.S. Open before beating No. 12 Mikhail Youzhny 6-2, 6-3, 6-4 on Saturday. With the crowd in Arthur Ashe Stadium trying to will Federer to victory — probably because of the tantalizing prospect of a final between him and Nadal — the owner of a record 16 Grand Slam ti-

tles couldn’t close the deal. “They all pretty much feel the same: You feel so empty at the end, I guess, because you tried everything,” said Federer, who hadn’t dropped a set all tournament before Saturday, but was hurt by 66 unforced errors, 28 more than Djokovic. “You feel like you left something out there if you lose a match having had match point,” Federer added. This setback comes after losses in the quarterfinals of both the French Open and Wimbledon, and Federer closes the 2010 Grand Slam season having played in one major final — the first year since 2003 that he hasn’t reached at least two. Nadal, meanwhile, will be bidding Sunday to become the first man since Rod Laver in 1969 to win the French Open, Wimbledon and the U.S. Open in the same season. The 24-yearold Spaniard also can become the seventh man in tennis history to own at least one championship from each Grand Slam tournament. “I won’t watch,” Federer said, “but I hope he wins.”

ISTANBUL — Kevin Durant is unlike most of America’s biggest basketball stars. He couldn’t wait to wear the red, white and blue this summer. Especially on Sept. 11. With a special memorial message on his sneakers, Durant carried the United States into the gold-medal game at the world championship, scoring a U.S.-record 38 points Saturday in an 89-74 victory over Lithuania. “I just wanted to remember everybody back in the States, everybody that was affected by 9/11,” Durant said. “And to play on this day was a great honor and we just tried to do our best to play hard for our country and our families.” Durant soared over defenders or stepped away from them for 3-pointers, scoring 17 in the first quarter to stake the Americans to an early lead that was never seriously challenged. He went on to surpass Carmelo Anthony’s single-game record of 35 points and raise his average in the tournament to 22.1, which would be the best ever by a U.S. player. “I’ve seen him score 45, 35, back-toback,” guard and NBA teammate Russell Westbrook said. “It doesn’t surprise me at all what he’s been doing.” More importantly, Durant guaranteed the Americans a chance at their first world title since 1994. They will play today against Turkey, which beat Serbia 83-82 in the other semifinal.

GOLF LEMONT, Ill. — Ryan Moore figured the BMW Championship would be his last tournament for a while. He shot a 5-under 66 on Saturday, which could put his vacation on hold. Moore eliminated the mistakes that held him back the previous day, making only one bogey to reach 8-under 205 and take a oneshot lead over Dustin Johnson (68), Matt Kuchar (70) and Charlie Wi (70). Tiger Woods finally broke par with a 3-under 68, but he needed much more. Woods was tied for 22nd at even-par 213, some seven shots behind where he needs to

BaseBaLL CINCINNATI — Pete Rose stood on first base and tipped his cap to the screaming crowd — a little bit like 25 years ago. The banished hits king made a rare onfield appearance Saturday while the Reds commemorated the 25th anniversary of his record-setting hit No. 4,192 at Cinergy Field. Wearing a No. 14 Rose jersey, he was driven onto the field at Great American Ball Park, walked over to first base and stomped on it with his booted right foot while a lessthan-capacity crowd stood and cheered. Rose broke Ty Cobb’s hits record with his single off San Diego’s Eric Show on Sept. 11, 1985.

U.s. OPen wOMen NEW YORK — NEW YORK — Kim Clijsters’ game is now as good as it gets on this stuff. Clijsters won a second consecutive U.S. Open championship and third overall Saturday night, easily beating Vera Zvonareva 6-2, 6-1 in a final that lasted exactly one hour and lacked any drama. Clijsters is the first woman since Venus Williams in 2000-01 to win the title in Flushing Meadows two years in a row.





27-yard field goal, for scoring honors. Hanes, a true freshman who earned all-conference accolades for 4AA state champ Matthews Butler last fall, grinned through braces about his amazing outing. “I’ve never done anything like that,” he said. “But I knew if I got in my spots and was where I was supposed to be, I could make plays. I’ve learned from (veterans) Cory Johnson and Lakeem Perry. They’re coaches on the field.” Livingstone (0-3) actually had more first downs, more passing yards and won time of possession by a ton, but five turnovers, including four picks, prevented the Blue Bears from competing with their neighbors. “I was super-glad for our defense because they built confidence, but I was getting a little bit irritated with them for scoring so much,” Catawba quarterback Patrick Dennis joked. “The offense needed to put some drives together, and we really didn’t get a lot of series out there.” Free safety Kewone Harris had a 65-yard fumble return for a touchdown, and backup corner Scottie Floyd scored on a 25-yard interception return. The defensive TDs by Harris and Floyd came 87 seconds apart in the first quarter to make it 21-0 and removed all doubt. “Livingstone has some quality talent, but I feel for them because they’re just so young,” Catawba coach Chip Hester said. “When you’re young, starting fast in a game is so awfully important, and we were the ones that got off to that fast start. I thought our special teams were a big edge early (Brandon Bunn set up a TD with a punt return), and that was key. We’ve been on the other side of that.” Catawba’s offense scored on its first possession. Josh Wright powered through gaping holes, and Dennis had time to text friends back home as he waited for receivers to get open. Dennis was 9-for-10 passing, including a 12-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Bunn to make it 28-0, before he called it a night. On the TD to Bunn, the 23rd of Bunn’s great career, he beat a safety one-on-one and sprinted across the end

body.” Edens did his part. Catawba scored four defensive touchdowns, two on knuckleball passes the 190-pound junior wished he could have back. “Those were bad, bad throws on my part,” he said. “I was trying to force them, trying to make plays. You can’t do that at this level because it’ll bite you in the butt.” It can and it did. “What I think happened,” James said, “is we got out there and just lost focus. The coaches can’t block for them, can’t run for them, can’t do it for them. They have to focus and execute. We told them, ‘If you don’t, you’re gonna get yourself in a hole. Just do the simple things right.’” That’s often easier said than done — even against a Catawba squad that has been less-than-spectacular the past few seasons. James and his staff devised what they believed was a promising game plan, one they hoped would help Livingstone break into the win column in this one-sided series. “The coaches were really excited about playing this game,” wideout Anthony Holland said after making six receptions for a game-best 90 yards. “You should have seen them. They wanted to strap up and get out there themselves. They had us prepared to win.” Instead, the Stone’s home-opener wasn’t lost. It was given away. The Blue Bears may have drowned themselves, but Catawba helped fill the pool. Four LC interceptions and a fumble made this an exercise in frustration. “Catawba capitalized on every opportunity we handed them,” junior Omar McFadden said. “And we handed it out on a silver platter.” By halftime it was 49-0, the last score coming when freshman linebacker Jacob Hanes confiscated an errant Edens pass on the right side and skipped 18 yards for a TD. It got worse in the third quarter when reserve QB Ray-

Jacob Hanes (54) scored twice — and made some big hits. zone to meet Dennis’ pass. “That was a great job in pass protection by our offensive line,” Dennis said. “No sacks last week, and they were solid again tonight. We realize there are tough challenges ahead of us, but we did a lot tonight we can build on.” Brian Terwilliger, a quick receiver who was a high school QB, scored out of Catawba’s “Wildcat” look in the second quarter, and backup QB Daniel Griffith fired a TD pass to Ronnie Williams for a 42-0 lead. Hanes’ first pick-6 made it 49-0 at the half. “A freshman gets two interceptions for two TDs — there’s not a lot more you can say,” said Catawba defensive captain Brandon Sutton. “Hanes gets picks in practice

too, and he works on returning them like he’s in a game.” Hanes’ second TD came with 9:45 remaining in the third quarter and ended the scoring for the Indians. He got that interception because Brandon Weedon was draped around the legs of LC backup quarterback Raymond Mallos, who had taken over for starter Curtis Edens. “The receivers were kidding me,” Hanes said. “They wanted to know how in the world a linebacker scores two touchdowns.” A fumble recovery by LC’s Devonta Harmon changed field position and set up Aycoth’s safety. Then, with 1:09 remaining, Mallos tossed a 20yard TD pass to Kevin Self for the final score.

Catawba's Kewone Harris celebrates in the end zone after scoring on a fumble return. mond Mallos, effective for the most part, threw a similar-looking interception that Hanes picked off and returned 10 yards for a score. An extra point later it was 59-0, but outcome had long been cemented. “I think when they went up 14-0 in the first quarter, everybody just EDENS went into the tank,” said Edens. “They quit fighting.” Not McFadden. “My reaction was to keep fighting,” he said. “But after so many negative things, it was hard. It started to hurt.” There were, of course, a few positives for the Blue Bears. They got on the scoreboard when linebacker Bryan Aycoth made a fourth-quarter tackle in the end zone. And their lone touchdown came when Mallos spiraled a 20-yard pass to senior Kevin Shelf with 1:09 remaining. But other than that, this was like watching the History Channel. It was something we had all seen before. Some of the verses may have changed, but the song remained the same. “I know our fans aren’t happy with us,” McFadden said. “The truth is we work as hard as any other team in the CIAA. We have no problem executing Monday through Friday in practice. But you have to be able to keep doing it at a high level on Saturday. We have to turn this around. There’s

Tide rolls Associated Press

The Top 25 roundup ... TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Trent Richardson ran for 144 yards in place of injured Heisman Trophy winner Mark Ingram, leading No. 1 Alabama to a 24-3 win over No. 18 Penn State on Saturday night. The Crimson Tide (2-0) hardly slowed down without Ingram, and a young defense forced Rob Bolden and the Nittany Lions (1-1) into several turnovers to end promising drives. It was the first time Penn State was held without a touchdown since a 13-3 loss at Wisconsin in 2006. The shutout lasted until the final 10 minutes. With Ingram sidelined for the second straight game with a knee injury, Richardson pulled a pretty good imitation. He plowed through and sidestepped tackles and scored on a short touchdown run. He also had four catches for 46 yards. Alabama QB Greg McElroy completed 16 of 24 passes for 229 yards and two touchdowns. No. 2 Ohio St. 36, No. 12 Miami 24 COLUMBUS, Ohio — Eight seasons later, the rematch wasn’t nearly as close. Terrelle Pryor ran for 113 yards and a touchdown and passed for another and No. 2 Ohio State intercepted Jacory Harris four times in a 36-24 victory over 12th-ranked Miami. In what was billed as a Heisman showcase, Pryor completed just 12 of 27 passes for 233 yards but added 20 carries, scoring on a 13-yard run. Harris was 22 of 39 passing for 232 yards and a touchdown but had the four interceptions — three of which could easily have been caught. The last time the teams had met was in the national championship game at the 2003 Fiesta Bowl, with the Buckeyes taking a dramatic and controversial 31-24 victory in double-overtime. But this one was no work of art, with numerous sloppy plays and bad tackling. But it kept the Buckeyes (2-0) perfect and prevented the Hurricanes (1-1) from making a case they belonged back among the nation’s elite. No. 4 TCU 62, Tennessee Tech 7 FORT WORTH, Texas — Matthew Tucker ran for two touchdowns and Andy Dalton threw for a score while setting another TCU record. No. 5 Texas 34, Wyoming 7 AUSTIN, Texas — Garrett Gilbert passed for 222 yards and a touchdown and Texas shook off another slow start to beat Wyoming. Gilbert was 22 of 35 with a 45-yard touchdown to freshman receiver Mike Davis in the second quarter. Fozzy Whittaker scored on a 39-yard run. No. 6 Nebraska 38, Idaho 17 LINCOLN, Neb. — Taylor Martinez ran for 157 yards and two touchdowns and Nebraska’s defense intercepted five of Nathan Enderle’s passes and had seven sacks. Martinez went over 100 yards rushing for the second straight game and Roy Helu Jr. added 107 yards and a touchdown on the ground for Nebraska. No. 9 Iowa 35, Iowa State 7 IOWA CITY, Iowa — Adam Robinson rushed for a careerhigh 156 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries as Iowa beat Iowa State for the third straight time. No. 10 Oklahoma 47, No. 17 Florida State 17 NORMAN, Okla. — Landry Jones outplayed Christian Ponder by throwing for 380 yards and four touchdowns, and No. 10 Oklahoma moved past a shaky season opener with a 4710 victory against No. 17 Florida State on Saturday. A rematch of the 2001 Orange Bowl that brought home the Sooners’ most recent national championship quickly turned into a blowout as Oklahoma (2-0) scored touchdowns on its first four possessions. Jones did much of his damage with short, swing passes and screens near the line of scrimmage before striking down field for scores. He completed 14 straight passes at one point, starting at the end of the Sooners’ opening drive and continuing past when he’d pushed the lead to 27-7 with his third touchdown pass. Ponder was just 11 for 28 for 113 yards with interceptions on back-to-back throws in the third quarter. No. 11 Wisconsin 27, San Jose State 14 MADISON, Wis. — John Clay ran for 137 yards and two touchdowns, and Wisconsin beat San Jose State, but lost receiver David Gilreath early in the game with a concussion. It was Clay’s eighth straight 100-yard rushing game as the Badgers won their 15th straight home opener. No. 14 Arkansas 31, Louisiana-Monroe 7 LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Ryan Mallett completed 28 of 43 passes for 400 yards and two touchdowns as Arkansas came on strong in the second half. Arkansas (2-0) struggled to move the ball and led only 70 at the break. Kansas 28, No. 15 Georgia Tech 25 LAWRENCE, Kan.— Jordan Webb threw three touchdown passes and Kansas rebounded from last week’s humiliating loss to North Dakota State by beating Georgia Tech. Capping a tumultuous eight days which included the abrupt retirement of their controversial athletic director, the Jayhawks (1-1) capitalized on a succession of mistakes by the heavily favored Yellow Jackets (1-1) and posted their biggest win since the 2008 Orange Bowl. No. 19 LSU 27, Vanderbilt 3 NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Stevan Ridley scored a 65-yard touchdown and ran for 144 of his 159 yards in the second half for LSU. It was the Tigers’ seventh straight win in this series in the Southeastern Conference opener for both teams. No. 20 Utah 38, UNLV 10 SALT LAKE CITY — Terrance Cain passed for two touchdowns in his first start in almost a year and Shaky Smithson returned a punt 77 yards for a score for Utah. No. 24 South Carolina 17, No. 22 Georgia 6 COLUMBIA, S.C. — Marcus Lattimore rushed for 182 yards and two first-half touchdowns and South Carolina beat Georgia. The Bulldogs (1-1, 0-1 SEC) played without suspended star receiver A.J. Green and they sure could’ve used him against the Gamecocks (2-0, 1-0) in the Southeastern Conference opener. Georgia was outgained by more than 100 yards and held without a touchdown for the first time in three years.

BLACKSBURG, Va. — Two games J. Madison 21 into the seaVa. Tech 16 son, and No. 13 Virginia Tech can already forget the national championship talk that prevailed throughout their preseason camp. These Hokies can’t even beat an FBS powerhouse, losing 21-16 to James Madison on Saturday. It was their second consecutive performance dominated not by a powerhouse offense, a stout defense or game-changing special teams, but by mistakes, missed tackles and disappointment. “I don’t know what’s going on,” tailback Ryan Williams said. “I really don’t.” Drew Dudzik ran for two touchdowns and threw for another for the Dukes (2-0), a top team in the Football Championship Subdivision, but only the second from a lower tier to beat Virginia Tech. Richmond, also in the FCS, beat the Hokies 24-14 at Lane Stadium in 1985. Virginia Tech is the second

The first was No. 5 Michigan, which fell 3432 to I-AA Appalachian State on Sept. 1, 2007. Dudzik called it the biggest victory in school history, and coach Mickey Matthews agreed, a remarkable thought because Matthews led the Dukes to the 2004 FCS national championship. “This is the biggest win of

my professional career,” he said. And it happened with Tech looking too much like the mistake-prone team that lost just six days earlier 33-30, when No. 3 Boise State won in the final minute. The Dukes needed no such late-game heroics, hanging onto the ball for the last 5:23 to finish off the Hokies. Leavander Jones and his team-

mates streamed onto the field to celebrate. “It was like a dream come true when the clock hit zero,” Jones said. “It was like, `Oh my God, we did it!” Dudzik attempted just eight passes, but completed five for 121 yards, including three huge third-down conversions in the second half. The Hokies also helped on both of the Dukes’ second-half scoring drives with 15-yard personal fouls for tackling players out of bounds. Tackling was more of a problem for the Hokies on one play in the first half. Facing a third-and-17 from his 23, Dudzik hit Jamal Sullivan with a swing pass going left, and the tailback went 77 yards down the sideline, breaking several tackles for the touchdown. Last week, Boise State had a 71-yard touchdown, also on the thirddown play. “We need to block better and we need to tackle better,” Frank Beamer said after his team’s first home loss in 33 games against a non-league opponent. “Execute. We need to execute.”

Spread offense has ECU at 0-2 Associated Press

GREENVILLE— East Caro l i n a ’ s 49 spread ofECU is Memphis 27 fense showing plenty of bite while its inexperienced defense is proving it can make a few plays of its own. First-year coach Ruffin McNeill will soon learn if his Pirates can keep that going on the road, too. Dominique Davis threw three touchdown passes and ran for two scores to help East Carolina beat Memphis 49-27 on Saturday, keeping McNeill

unbeaten at his alma mater while giving the two-time defending Conference USA champion a fast start in league play. Derek Blacknall returned an interception 46 yards for a touchdown in a dominating start for the Pirates (2-0, 2-0 C-USA), who last week needed a last-play touchdown pass to beat Tulsa 51-49 at DowdyFicklen Stadium. This time, the Pirates ran out to a 28-3 first-quarter lead and coasted the rest of the way in front of another big home crowd. “Even I heard, ’Good game last week,’ as I was walking to

the stadium, so I know the players got it on campus,” McNeill said. “And deservedly so, but that’s one thing I did worry about: them having a hangover from that win.” Memphis never got within two possessions after the opening period. The Pirates, at least, have some positives to build on heading into a three-game road trip. First comes a pair of games against No. 13 Virginia Tech and instate rival North Carolina of the Atlantic Coast Conference, then a league road game at Southern Mississippi.

Appalachian State rolls to ‘Quick’ win over Jacksonville Associated Press

BOONE — DeAndre Presley passed for 285 yards and four touchdowns, three to Brian Quick, as Appalachian State beat Jacksonville 45-14 Saturday. Presley passed for two touchdowns in each half as the Mountaineers (2-0), who are 59-19-2 in home openers, took a 17-7 halftime lead over the Dolphins (1-1), then put the game away with four second-half scores. Quick, who had six receptions for 132 yards, scored the Mountaineers’ first touchdown on a 41-yard reception, then caught a 15-yard scoring pass with 2:45 left in the first half. He scored on another 41-yarder with 1:48 left in the third quarter for a 31-14 lead. Michigan 28, Notre Dame 24 SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Denard Robinson capped another electrifying performance Saturday by running for a 2-yard touchdown with 27 seconds left, sending Michigan to a 28-24 victory over Notre Dame.

Robinson also had an 87-yard TD run and finished with 502 total yards offense, easily eclipsing the Michigan quarterback record he set against UConn (383) a week earlier. He carried 28 times for 258 yards and two touchdowns and passed for another 244 with a TD. Clemson 58, Presbyterian 21 CLEMSON, S.C. — Kyle Parker threw for 114 yards and two touchdowns in just four possessions to lead Clemson to a 58-21 win over Presbyterian. Maryland 62, Morgan St 3 COLLEGE PARK, Md. — Backup Danny O’Brien threw three touchdown passes in a 45-point first half, and Maryland enjoyed its highest-scoring performance in 35 years, a 62-3 rout. Boston College 26, Kent State 13 BOSTON — Dave Shinskie returned after being taken out in the first half and threw a pair of third-quarter touchdown passes, and Boston College took advantage of five Kent State turnovers to win 26-13.

Tusculum 54, Western Carolina 30 CULLOWHEE — Bo Cordell threw for 410 yards and four touchdowns and rushed for one as Tusculum defeated Western Carolina 54-30. The Division II Pioneers (3-0) jumped out to a 27-0 lead as the teams played for the first time since 1949. Winston-Salem St. 34, NCCU 27 DURHAM — Kameron Smith threw his fifth touchdown pass of the game with 1:34 left Saturday as WinstonSalem State came back to beat North Carolina Central 34-27. Lenoir-Rhyne 41, Davidson 13 HICKORY — James Pone scored on a 59-yard run and first-half turnovers led to three additional touchdowns by Lenoir-Rhyne in a 41-13 victory over Davidson on Saturday night. Pone, who rushed for 70 yards on five carries, scored on the Bears’ first play after the Wildcats’ only first-half touchdown, a 9-yard run by Kenny Mantuo, who had 12 carries for 89 yards.





an early 5-minute stretch, the teams combined for three touchdowns of at least 60 yards. “We’ve got to tackle better to begin with. And (have) the discipline to be consistent enough not to give up huge plays,” Duke coach David Cutcliffe said. “We got the ball run at us, and we got the ball thrown at us. A lot of it was not tackling very well.” Sean Renfree was 28 of 44 for 358 yards with four touchdowns and three interceptions for Duke (1-1, 0-1). Conner Vernon caught two TDs, covering 70 and 51 yards. Renfree’s second scoring pass to Vernon made it a sixpoint game with 1:39 remaining, but Marshall Williams recovered the ensuing onside kick. Renfree had touchdowns covering 9 yards to Cooper Helfet and 13 yards to Austin Kelly. Vernon finished with eight catches for 181 yards — his second straight 100-yard game — and Desmond Scott rushed for 122 yards including a 63-yard score. Will Snyderwine kicked field goals covering 46 and 38 yards for the Blue Devils, with the second pulling them to 4841 with 8:45 remaining. Price

came off the bench in the middle of the third quarter to ring up 160 yards total offense and score twice. His 1-yard sprint around the end cut the Knights’ deficit to 28-21 with 4:29 left in the game. UCF got the ball back with 2:47 left. Godfrey completed a 21-yard pass to Quincy McDuffie at the N.C. State 11, but the Knights receiver fumbled when he was hit by safety Brandan Bishop. Wolfpack linebacker Terrell Manning fell on the ball, and N.C. State ran out the clock. Two of the turnovers, an interception return and fumble recovery, came in the first half and helped N.C. State jump out to a 210 lead. Sophomore Earl Wolff picked off a pass from UCF starting quarterback Rob Calabrese and returned it 31 yards to give the Wolfpack possession at the UCF 42. Eight plays later, redshirt freshman Dean Haynes burst up the middle from 4 yards out to make it 7-0. Russell Wilson hit four straight passes for 47 yards on the next N.C. State pos-

Price and Ted Stachitas were among the leaders in the preseason race to replace record-setter and graduated four-year starter Riley Skinner. The two shared time in the first half before Stachitas bruised his left (nonthrowing) hand — a troublesome injury for a key member of an offense that runs so many pitches to both sides of the field. Price, who played the entire second half, put the Demon Deacons ahead to stay midway through the third quarter by finding a wideopen Williams streaking down the right sideline from

session, including a 26-yard scoring pass to Darrell Davis. Wilson drew the UCF defense into the middle of the field with a pump fake, then lobbed a perfect strike to a wide open Davis in the right corner of the end zone. UCF’s special teams handed N.C. State another scoring opportunity when blocking back Latavius Murray allowed a punt to bounce off his shin and Wolfpack safety Corey Tedder fell on it at the Knights 20-yard line. On third-and11, Greene took a draw play 21 yards up the middle for the touchdown that made it 21-0 with 3:26 left in the half. McDuffie returned the ensuing kickoff 93 yards for the Knights’ lone score of the first half. McDuffie, a Florida high school state champion sprinter, made a sharp cut in the middle of traffic and easily outran the Wolfpack defenders to cut the deficit to 21-7. Midway through the third quarter, Calabrese badly overthrew Brian Watters and the ball floated right into Wilson’s hands. The Wolfpack cornerback avoided Watters, then ran down the sideline behind a wall of blockers to score easily and make it 28-7.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;They beat our butts,â&#x20AC;? place-kicker Lawrence Tynes said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For the guys that were here, the coaches and organization, this one is pretty important. The way we finished last year was unacceptable.â&#x20AC;? Both teams have a lot to prove this season. After winning their divisions in 2008 with 12-4 records, the Giants and Panthers each slipped to 8-8 last season and missed the playoffs. The Panthers have undergone major changes. Quarterback Jake Delhomme and defensive end Julius Peppers are playing elsewhere in a shakeup that has seen Carolina emerge as the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s youngest team. Matt Moore, who was at the helm in the late surge, has taken over as quarterback for an offense that relies on the running of Williams and Jonathan Stewart, who gained 1,133 rushing, including a career-best 206 vs. New York last year. Veteran Steve Smith, who broke his left arm in last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game against the Giants and broke it again playing flag football in June, isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t concerned. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mistakes, just leaving plays on the field,â&#x20AC;? the fourtime Pro Bowler said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had dropped balls, overthrown balls, missed routes. I just think errors, and I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what the preseason is there for, to make those errors so you can have them corrected once the season starts.â&#x20AC;? Despite losing Peppers to free agency, the Panthers had 19 sacks in four preseason games. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like the way weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve grown through the preseason,â&#x20AC;? said Fox, who is in the final year of his contract. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a young football team. In particular there are some guys that have not seen a lot of playing time for us, albeit theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been with us. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve liked their progress as we prepare for the season opener.â&#x20AC;? The strength of the Giants is their offense. Eli Manning had a career year, throwing for 4,021 yards and 27 touchdowns and receiver Steve

eran who has started 87 straight games. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is the first game and we want to get off to a fast start and go out there and play well. They are a good team. They do some good stuff. It is just a matter of execution with these guys. We want to open up the new stadium the right way and go out there and try to get a win.â&#x20AC;?



Smith set franchise record with 107 catches in 2009. The biggest change will be Ahmad Bradshaw replacing Brandon Jacobs as the No. 1 running back, although Jacobs will play some because the Giants alternate their backs. Manning downplayed last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I look at it as a new season,â&#x20AC;? said the seven-year vet-

San Francisco at Seattle It’s Pete Carroll’s official return to the NFL after a decade of brilliance and championships at Southern Cal. His Seahawks might lose half as many games this year as the 19 Carroll dropped with the Trojans. The rebuilding effort in Seattle is mammoth, and the team has shuttled players in and out all summer. San Diego at Kansas City (Monday night) Who is missing from the Chargers is as noteworthy as who is on hand for the overwhelming AFC West favorites. Still around are QB Philip Rivers, TE Antonio Gates, LBs Shawne Merriman and Shaun Phillips, probably enough to handle KC.

ford makes his debut against the most newsworthy team of the preseason. Unless the Rams’ offensive line comes together quickly, Bradford will spend a lot of time on his back or being chased out of the pocket. Detroit at Chicago Detroit won two games last season, which was two more than the previous year. Under coach Jim Schwartz and GM Martin Mayhew, the Lions appear to be building something substantial, and a win at Soldier Field would be a tremendous boost. Oakland at Tennessee The Titans began 2009 with six straight losses before benching Kerry Collins for Vince Young. But the key for Tennessee this season is Chris Johnson, only the sixth man to rush for more than 2,000 yards in a season. Johnson has his sights on an unprecedented 2,500. Cleveland at Tampa Bay An early opportunity for two bad teams to get off to a good start. Jake Delhomme takes over at quarterback in Cleveland, which should be an improvement, but who will he be throwing to?


NFL this week ... The Houston Texans and New York Jets need to put up or shut up early. Right away, in fact, as the NFL season kicks off. If the Texans are to contend for their first playoff berth, they must find a way to beat the Indianapolis Colts, who come to Reliant Stadium today. Houston is 1-15 against Peyton Manning since entering the league in 2002. Some observers would say the Jets are doing everything the right way, adding stars such as LaDainian Tomlinson, Jason Taylor, Santonio Holmes and Antonio Cromartie to their lineup. Others would say they are doing things far too loudly, from the profane “Hard Knocks” on HBO to their everyday verbosity. “This is who we are,” coach Rex Ryan said without apologies. Other openers include Green Bay at Philadelphia; Cincinnati at New England; Dallas at Washington; Atlanta at Pittsburgh; Denver at Jacksonville; Carolina at the New York Giants; San Francisco at Seattle; Miami at Buffalo; Arizona at St. Louis; Detroit at Chicago; Oakland at Tennessee; and Cleveland at Tampa Bay. • Green Bay at Philadelphia Few teams are getting the

Super Bowl hype that Green Bay is. The Packers really seem to be grasping the 3-4 defense that coordinator Dom Capers installed last year, and quarterback Aaron Rodgers looks primed for a huge season. Kevin Kolb has the QB job and nobody in Philly wants to use the rebuilding word. Still, this is not the star-studded roster that went to five NFC title games in the last decade. Cincinnati at New England T.O. and Ochocinco on one side, Randy Moss and Wes Welker on the other. Carson Palmer and Tom Brady chucking the ball. How juicy! Dallas at Washington If Donovan McNabb lost sleep in the offseason thinking about how the Cowboys manhandled him in the 2009 finale and then the wild-card playoff round, he can’t be very relaxed heading into the Sunday night game at FedEx Field. McNabb’s Redskins debut could get painful as the Cowboys ramp up the pass rush, led by All-Pro DeMarcus Ware and NT Jay Ratliff. Atlanta at Pittsburgh A major opportunity for the Falcons with Pittsburgh starting untested QB Dennis Dixon as Ben Roethlisberger begins his 4-game suspension. Denver at Jacksonville Here’s one way to guarantee the Jaguars aren’t blacked out locally: Tim Tebow. The QB comes to his home-

Ellison’s track record suggests that he’s been cold to the idea before, but in Hurd, Oracle gets a Wall Street darling who’s proven he can take a company that is undergoing a massive shift and deliver steady financial results. Consistency is something Ellison will need to protect his legacy at Oracle and his sizable investment in the company — Ellison is the company’s largest stakeholder, controlling nearly a quarter of its stock. Before joining HP, Hurd spent his entire career at ATM maker NCR Corp., starting as an entry-level salesman and working his way up the ranks

to become CEO for two years before HP poached him. He was HP’s chief for five years until he abruptly resigned Aug. 6 in a scandal over sexual-harassment claims made by an HP contractor. Although HP’s board found no merit to those claims, it uncovered inaccurate expense reports, which Hurd insisted he didn’t prepare himself. Hurd’s camaraderie with Ellison could be instrumental in Oracle’s quest to steal business from HP. But because the men are two of the technology world’s biggest celebrities, if they don’t hit it off as boss and subordinate as well as they have as buddies, it could create more drama to the soap opera

surrounding Hurd’s stunning downfall at HP. “Marriages that seem to be made in heaven don’t always end up that way,” said Kenneth Freeman, dean of Boston University’s School of Management. “There’s a close relationship between Ellison and Hurd, but sometimes when you go from being conversant across party lines to going into the same family, the same company, things can change.” Hurd will have plenty of room to maneuver, as head of Oracle’s global sales, consulting, marketing and technical support divisions, “but he has to remember that at the end of

Who will be top dog at Oracle? AN FRANCISCO (AP) — As co-president at Oracle Corp., ousted HewlettPackard Co. CEO Mark Hurd will have to adapt to a new role playing second fiddle to one of Silicon Valley’s most domineering bosses — Larry Ellison. Although the two men have been pals for several years, working together may test their friendship given that they have both been accustomed to being the top dog. Ellison, in particular, has never left any doubt who’s calling the shots at the business software juggernaut that he cofounded 33 years ago. “Larry is well-known for his strong personality, and there is always a possibility of a personality clash with Hurd,” said Kaushik Roy, an analyst with Wedbush Securities. “Friendships are not permanent — especially not in business.” In a high-profile power struggle a decade ago, Ellison ousted a president, Ray Lane, who had played an instrumental role in rebuilding Oracle’s sales force after an accounting scandal. Lane resigned after Ellison tightened his grip on the company and stripped Lane of many of his responsibilities. Many other executives have left Oracle after falling out with Ellison or realizing that he would never loosen his reins of power. Hurd, meanwhile, knows how to serve as a subordinate, but he has been a chief executive for the past seven years and could be angling for Oracle’s top job when Ellison retires. Hurd is 53; Ellison is 66. Hurd’s appointment could

DEAR BRUCE: I own three timeshares in three states. I am 65 years old, married and still working. I have recently begun to consider selling, which I’m told is next to impossible. I attended a seminar from companies that say they can help me out from under. They do say that an owner cannot get out of his contracted obligation to continue paying and his heir’s cannot get out of paying these yearly fees. Is this true? Both companies propose to get an individual out of his deeded timeshares with an upfront fee of many thousands of dollars. With this fee, it is promised/guaranteed to save many years of paying fees by my heirs and myself. Would this really be true? — Hugh Macomb, Ill.

It may be a long time before my sister either goes to a nursing home or passes away. We have a sister who agreed to do this, but she keeps saying she will fight this. Can she really fight this when four out of the five of us are in total agreement? My brother has worked very hard to do the right thing. — Michelle,

There is no way that you can obligate your heirs, unless maybe the timeshare people take the position that this is ongoing debt.

the day the CEO of Oracle is Larry Ellison,â&#x20AC;? Freeman said. Oracle declined to make Hurd and Ellison available for interviews. Ellison and Hurd have grown close in Hurdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s five years in Silicon Valley, working as partners to make sure HPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s computers run smoothly with Oracleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s software. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve also bonded over their love of tennis. Hurd was a collegiate athlete, and Ellison practices with pros and even bought a tennis tournament last year to keep it from moving out of the U.S. Ellisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision to bring Hurd aboard at Oracle is fraying a quarter-century alliance between the two companies, one already rocky since Oracle started competing with HP by selling computer servers with Oracleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $7.4 billion purchase of Sun Microsystems last year. HP sued Hurd in a California court on Tuesday, a day after he joined Oracle. HP argues that Hurd wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be able to do his job at Oracle without spilling HPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trade secrets. Although courts in California typically side with workers who want to take their skills to rival companies, Hurdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s intimate knowledge of HPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s businesses, and his severance package from HP that could top $40 million, could work against him. Still, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unlikely that HP would succeed beyond delaying Hurdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s employment by a few months, to allow the information that Hurd possesses to become dated, said Linda Stevens, an attorney with Schiff Hardin LLP who specializes in trade secret disputes. Oracle plans to pay Hurd an annual salary of $950,000 and offer a bonus targeted at $5 million in the current fiscal year. Hurd will also be awarded stock options totaling 10 million shares initially and another 5 million shares

because Ellison â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sixth-richest man with a fortune of $28 billion, according to Forbes magazine â&#x20AC;&#x201D; has much of his wealth tied up in Oracle stock. That gives Ellison incentive not to alienate an executive he may be grooming as a replacement.



each year for the next five years. Hurd is an operations expert who relentlessly cuts costs â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including some 50,000 jobs in his time atop HP. He also shuns the spotlight and, until last month, managed to stay out of the Silicon Valley gossip mill. By contrast, Ellison thrives on living on the edge, racing sailboats and insulting rivals in public. He invites controversy and loudly came to Hurdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defense, calling the HP boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision to shove aside Hurd the worst personnel decision since Apple Inc. forced out another of Ellisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s close friends, Steve Jobs, 25 years ago. (In a show of Ellisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loyalty, in 1997 he floated the idea of buying Apple so that Jobs could run it again. Jobs later returned as CEO, without Ellison needing to buy the company, to rescue Apple from an ugly slump.) Ellison may go easier on Hurd than his past deputies because the two already have a close relationship and

FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH • ROCKWELL 8630 Hillcrest Drive Rockwell • 704.279.6120 Air Master Technologies, Inc Announces Arrival of New Equipment, Designed Specifically For North Carolina’s Weather

(North Carolina) – Air Master Technologies announced the introduction of a new line of heating and air conditioning equipment today that’s designed specifically for the North Carolina area. “Climate varies dramatically across the country and manufacturers tend to build one-size-fits-all products,” said Scott Lashua, General Manager of Air Master Technologies. “Our conditions are unique enough that we decided to design a system specifically for North Carolina and work with manufacturers to produce a product to our specification. When we had the system design we wanted, we chose to call it ‘The Elite System.’” The outside air conditioner is only part of the system Air Master Technologies offers, explained Scott. Heating and air conditioning systems are comprised of a number of components that are field engineered to work together optimally for comfort and energy savings. The components are not always interchangeable. Mismatched components and an improperly designed system might work, for a while. But it will use more energy and reduce the equipment life. “When I buy a household appliance,” explained Scott, “I can take it home, plug it in, and it works. Heating and air conditioning systems are much more complex. The outside components must be matched to the components located inside the house. The design of the system can also be affected by a number of house specific factors including the house’s humidity, how well it’s sealed, the orientation of windows, and so on. We’ve worked with a domestic manufacturer operating in an ISO 9000 factory to produce products that we engineer into a system, specifically designed for North Carolina and further refined for each house.” The Elite Series is available exclusively through Air Master Technologies. For more information on the new Elite Series of heating and air conditioning equipment, or for a complementary engineering analysis of your home or business, contact Scott Lashua at 704-637-7777.

Patterson Farm has earned Gold Star Grower status, which means it meets U.S. Labor Department standards. That’s a lot of paperwork and deadlines and it’s not easy to maintain the rigid standards, some of which have not been updated in 15 years, Randall says. Through state organizations, he is working to reform the current H2A program to make it easier for farmers to secure their workforce. He serves on the N.C. Commissioner of Agriculture’s Inner Circle, a group of 30 farmers who meet quarterly to discuss challenges facing farmers, such as food safety and the labor market. He is an Agriculture Commissioner appointee to the N.C. Sustainable Local Food Advisory Council. He is past president of the N.C. Tomato Growers Association and a board member of the N.C. Vegetable Growers Association and the N.C. Growers Association. “I feel responsible for the workers that we bring in,” says Randall. “We need to have enough work to keep them busy to support their families.” That meant diversification and Patterson Farm is achieving it in several ways. “We have a system of management of finding a profitable crop and a window of marketability,” says Randall. “With any one crop failure, you need to have something to fall back on.” Patterson previously was a 90 percent tomato farm with the growing season from mid-June until mid-October. Now it’s 60 percent, with strawberries, peppers, squash, sweet corn, cucumbers, cantaloupe, processing peppers and pumpkins added. Processing peppers are shipped directly to Mt. Olive Pickle Co. Doug and Randall also began a repack business on Millbridge Road four years ago. “We wanted to be able to supply our customers with tomatoes in the off-season,” says Randall. “When our season was over, we were cutting ties until the next spring.” The new business also enables them to keep a workforce intact year-round and to add income during winter. “Now, we follow the harvest cycle of the tomato industry,” Randall adds, which means buying tomatoes from South Carolina, Florida, and sometimes Mexico. It’s a highly competitive business, but so is everything about farming. The repack manager, Melissa Roach, has to know what her customers, mostly chain stores, will need in a given week, and during the Patterson off-season order the product to fit the need. During the Patterson season, the product is taken directly from the field to repack. “We had the facility in place for this operation to exist,” Randall says. “We use our coolers and packing house equipment which was

with my dad on the farm as a 6-year-old kid. Then, there’s a picture of me carrying a flat of strawberries on my head. I was 7 years old. “When I was 14, my dad rented me a five-acre field to raise cantaloupe and corn, and I made money. We started growing those crops afterwards.” He finished N.C. State University in 1982 with an agriculture engineering degree and came back to help out. “I got caught up in the vision,” he says. When he takes a rare moment to reflect, he thinks about how much farming has changed and how hard it is to involve youngsters at an early age to have the experience that he did. “The average farmer is 56 years old,” he says. “There are hundreds of farms going under. We need to involve youngsters to continue farming, and we need to figure out ways to preserve farmland.”



sitting idle during the winter months. Now it continues to run and continues to be profitable.” It promotes the Patterson Farm name year-round. “We get a higher quality, fresher product to the consumer quicker,” Randall says. Other measures of exposure and diversification are Patterson Farm Landscape and Patterson Farm Market & Tours, which is open spring through late fall. Produce is sold at the market in Mount Ulla and up to 20,000 students and others visit the farm each year for tours and entertainment. The landscape business works in commercial and residential markets with its trees, shrubs and design work. Randall grew up wanting to be a farmer. “As a kid I helped my dad and uncle out at Twin Oak Farms that was started by my grandfather, James A. Patterson. My earliest memory was me going

Gallery shows both sides of Ansel Adams dispute

Next to the garage-sale find, the gallery will hang the work of photo-hobbyist Earl Brooks, who Adams’ family says is the real photographer behind Norsigian’s images.


LOS ANGELES (AP) — A Los Angeles gallery is taking head-on the dispute over garage-sale pictures that the owner says are the early work of Ansel Adams. The Duncan Miller Gallery is putting up 20 authentic prints by the renowned nature photographer in a brief show that opened Saturday. Next to those will be prints from the collection of Rick Norsigian of Fresno, who said he bought the glass negatives for $45 at a garage sale, then had them authenticated as the lost work of Adams.

what seems to be a lifetime. It became a cultural watershed moment and gave West the most intense backlash of his career, despite an apology delivered later. He dropped out of the spotlight, and last week on Twitter, said that he endured death wishes, had to cancel a tour and let go of employees. He again apologized to Swift and said he wrote a song for her and hoped she would sing it — and if not, he would perform it for her. But instead, Swift will be singing her own song. The

Grammy-winner is known for writing intensely personal songs, and skewering a few former boyfriends along the way. After initially expressing her hurt, Swift has avoided addressing the matter. West will also be a performer at the awards show; both are nominees. It’s not clear what song he will sing. Though there was anticipation of possible fireworks related to last year with West’s performance, Swift’s song all but guarantees it.

NEW YORK (AP) — Be warned, Kanye: Taylor Swift has written a song about you, and she’s singing it at tonight’s MTV Video Music Awards. The country superstar’s win for best female video last year was marred when Kanye West got on stage and said it should have gone to Beyonce. Swift wrote a song about the experience earlier this year, and a source familiar with the show said Saturday the 20-year-old will sing the new song at the VMAs, which will be aired live on MTV. The source did not want to be iden-

Experiences are likely to come in many shapes and sizes in the year ahead and will be both good and bad, but they all can be used to expand your vision and establish greater stability in your affairs as the year unfolds. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — You’re likely to be happiest spending your time on arrangements or projects you personally direct. Instead of waiting for someone to tell you what to do, take control yourself. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Wait until the other guy makes the first move when it comes to negotiating something. You’ll know right away where things stand, and you will better comprehend what you’re dealing with. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — It doesn’t have to be just a so-so day. Plan something serene and special to do with someone who means a lot to you, and you can turn it into a memorable time. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — There is little need to be fearful of challenging conditions. In fact, they could bring out the smarts you didn’t know you possessed, to overcome opposition and/or remove impediments. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Even though you might not be aware of it, you could have more than a few admirers observing you. This favorable impression will occur from just simply being yourself. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — In situations where you are more motivated to achieve something than others might be, you’ll easily come out the winner. Be single-minded and keep your eyes focused on the target. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Your successes can be considerably enhanced simply by treating others as you would wish to be treated. It’s an old method, but it always works out to be an advantage. Aries (March 21-April 19) — Don’t think you have to live with something that has been unproductive for far too long. Use your smarts and ingenuity to make whatever changes are called for to improve matters. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — If you care enough to be an astute observer, you can learn something about handling abrasive issues. Once you see how easy it is to be a diplomat, you’ll never resort to a negative response again. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Even though this might be a day of rest, you won’t be content with failing to utilize your time and talents productively. Plan to tackle a project or to be of service to someone who needs help. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Even if you have to take it upon yourself to make plans for the entire family, do it. Others are looking to have some fun and to do something different, but they don’t have the imagination to come up with the ideas. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — The bargains are out there if you’re inclined to go shopping, and you should be able to make some good buys. If nothing more, hitting the retail outlets could prove to be fun.

Ground Zero, nine years later BY SAMANTHA GROSS Associated Press

EW YORK — It is a place of sacrifice. A place of mourning. A place people pass by on their way to grab lunch. It’s a place where tourists crane their necks to snatch a glimpse around barriers walling off an enormous construction site — which is also what it is. Ground zero. Depending on whom you talk to, it’s a scar on this city where horror still lingers, a bustling hive symbolizing the resilience of a nation, or simply, for those who live and work nearby, a place where life goes on. In recent weeks, as debate has raged over the placement of a planned Islamic cultural center and mosque a couple of blocks from the construction, Americans have been reminded of just how many people lay claim to this place, the focal point for all those who have a stake in the legacy of Sept. 11. Almost everyone has a stake. Gesturing at the land he helped clear in the weeks after 9/11, Louis Pabon believes he knows who owns it: “This is mine.” Today he is wearing his hard hat again, standing at the gates of St. Paul’s Chapel, hawking the photos that he took of the wreckage. Tourists stop in the sun to look at the images of smoky desolation. Take a walk around ground zero, and you can get lost in the throngs. Among the tourist crowds at St. Paul’s, a block away, a woman sipping a strawberry smoothie walks past an altar covered with photos of the dead. Outside, beneath cranes that glint red in the sun, construction workers cluster. A woman in a business suit and white sneakers speeds down the sidewalk. Burger King is full, and at Century 21 department store, across from the construction, polo shirts are 85 percent off. This place was once a giant plaza filled with businesspeople and tourists and shoppers and commuters rushing to the subway. Then, on one sunny September Tuesday in 2001, it became suddenly a place of history and loss. Within 24 hours, someone had dubbed it ground zero, and it was never the same. After 9/11, there were weeks, and months, of coming to grips. Everyone had lost something. A child. An acquaintance. A skyline. A sense of safety. A center of business. A solid stock portfolio. A feeling that we knew where everything was heading. The city’s Muslims, many of them, lost a willingness to speak out. They had enjoyed a kind of anonymity — a knowledge that they were just another ingredient in the hearty stew of New York. But since Sept. 11, they have felt an unwanted spotlight, and some have been afraid. “Now no one can talk about Islam ... because Islam became like equal to violence,” says Noureddine Elberhoumi, a cab driver who says that after Sept. 11 he stopped volunteering information about his religious affiliation. “In their mind, Islam is always going back to Iraq, Afghanistan, 9/11 — that’s it.” In the days after the attacks, the nation was in a wrenching, gripping catharsis. We were mourning our dead. We were mourning the accustomed path, whatever it was, that had been ripped out from under us. We were on a new, uncertain course. Before the week was out, the pastor at St. Paul’s began calling the site of the devastation “sacred ground.” On Sept. 20, Katie Couric told TV viewers it “should be hallowed.” For the family members of more than 1,100 of the victims whose remains were never recovered, it is the only gravesite they have. “This pit of evil and doom,” Sally Regenhard calls it now, her voice shaking nine years af-


The crumbling stone-and-mud walls of an ancient village lie adjacent to Bagram Airfield, north of Kabul.

Views of Afghanistan Ancient ruins and satellite dishes are part of a vivid countryside ack during my first week in country, I had the opportunity to travel around the eastern part of Afghanistan by UH60 helicopter. As a former Blackhawk pilot, it is my favorite way of getting around. I caught a ride with a National Guard outfit from one of the New England states over to Kabul. In order to get back, I had a ride lined up for late that afternoon, but I finished my business early, and when a pair of helicopters showed up at the airport I talked my way into a seat. I was basically a hitchhiker that day, and the sure thing sitting on the ramp with the blades turning seemed a better bet than the one that was supposed to show up a few hours later. They warned me that they had a number of stops to make and would be out for a couple of hours, but I told them I didn’t mind as long as my filling a seat wouldn’t affect their mission. Afghanistan is not Iraq. I had been there twice before, and from flying missions in


This is a blog posting by Lt. Col. Rodger T. Duncan, a career Army officer currently stationed in Afghanistan, at Bagram Airfield. Duncan is a graduate of East Rowan High (1975) and Appalachian State University (1985). You can find additional postings at the northern mountains in ’91 to working in downtown Baghdad in ’06 it looked more or less the same. The countryside was different between the north and the capital, but it all looked like

Iraq. There were villages and towns with electricity, automobiles, and often the roads were paved. The homes and shops reminded me of the old movies where the bazaar was bustling with people; and the buildings, while not necessarily modern by our standards, were still built in a recognizable fashion. I wish I had found the opportunity to travel more and see what other parts of Iraq were like, but overall it had entered the 20th century in most outward ways. However, all I had read of Afghanistan indicated that it was entirely different, and I wasn’t disappointed. As a quick piece of background, there are the ruins of an ancient village next to Bagram (my current “home”). The walls that are standing are built of stone and covered with mud. There are holes in the upper walls of some of the tall, two story structures, I assume for air circulation in the heat

Forums feature Rowan candidates lection 2010 is so lively and important that we have three candidate forums scheduled in the coming weeks. The “we” includes Catawba College, the Rowan County Chamber of Commerce and the Salisbury Post. We’re teaming up again to help voters learn about the candidates and where they stand on the issues. All three forums will be held in the Tom Smith Auditorium in the Ketner School of Business building at Catawba College. Once again, our moderator will be the unflappable Dr. Michael ELIZABETH Bitzer, associate professor of political science and hisCOOK tory. He also chairs Catawba’s Department of History and Politics. Here’s the schedule: • Sept. 28, 6-8:15 p.m. Rowan County district attorney and sheriff and N.C.House District 77. We’ll focus on the D.A. and sheriff’s race in the first hour of this forum, 6-7 p.m., since both play key roles in Rowan County law and order. With D.A. Bill Kenerly retiring, two assistant D.A.s are competing for his job, Karen Biernacki from Kenerly’s office and Brandy Cook from the Cabarrus D.A.’s office. The sheriff’s race is always a hot one. Though last spring’s crowded slate of wannabes has narrowed from 11 to two, there’s still a great deal of interest in who’s going to be the county’s top law man. Republican Kevin Auten has the advantage of having been appointed sheriff to fulfill George Wilhelm’s unexpired term. Democrat John Noble, also an experienced law enforcement officer, proved in the spring that he can pull in a lot more votes than conventional wisdom might expect. The race is not over until they count the ballots. After a 15-minute break, the forum will focus on the race for one of Rowan’s two seats in the N.C. House, the one held by Democrat Lorene Coates. She’ll face Republican challenger Harry Warren. If the spring forums were any indication, Warren will make sure this is no cakewalk for Coates. Incumbency is a two-edged sword in this year of voter dissatisfaction. Coates must envy Fred Steen, the county’s other

Extremism is the threat ounting tension broke Thursday when the Rev. Terry Jones announced that his Florida church would not burn copies of the Quran on Sept. 11. The symbolic protest threatened to set off a destructive chain of events. That same day, we saw troubling local evidence of Christian doctrine being twisted to destructive ends. The FBI arrested 26-year-old Justin Carl Moose, accused in a plot to bomb a women’s clinic in North Carolina. Fortunately, the person seeking Moose’s expertise was an FBI plant. But Moose’s intention to “save a life, terminate an abortionist,” as he says on his Facebook page, was as real as the instructions he gave for building a bomb. Millions of Christians sing “Onward, Christian Soldier” and take its talk of war as metaphor, much like the Salvation Army. Millions study the Bible and find a message of peace to embrace. But, just as Islam can spawn terrorism by extremists, Christianity has its radicals. Moose is said to be a member of the Army of God, a Christian group that advocates violence in its quest to stop abortion. The Army of God claimed responsibility for the bombings committed by Eric Rudolph and has been connected to other violent acts. Many people abhor abortion and work to end it in peaceful ways. They open pregnancy support centers, lobby Congress and hold demonstrations. Christianity is not the threat; extremism is. “You don’t overcome murdering by murdering,” says Flip Benham, national director of Operation Rescue. Benham’s organization has been accused of encouraging violence, a charge it denies. Army of God adherents openly advocate violence. Moose’s arrest brings that threat uncomfortably close to home. He graduated from South Rowan High School and lives in Concord. If what the FBI says is true, he is a homegrown terrorist. Compare that to another Concord man who made headlines last week, Private First Class James McClamrock. McClamrock was one of the first U.S. soldiers to die in Iraq since the official end of combat operations. Only 22 and a preacher’s son, he joined the Army a year ago. He was “one of the good ones,” a family friend said. “He had his head on straight.” The country has millions more homegrown patriots than terrorists, more churches advocating harmony than threatening to burn Qurans. The wayward minority gets the attention, though, and shapes outside opinions. The extremists are the threat — to their own religion.

House member, who has no opposition for re-election. • Oct. 5, 6-7:30 p.m., Rowan County Board of Education. Three seats are up for election on the school board, and with only one involving an incumbent, these races look wide open. With Karen Carpenter not seeking re-election to the North seat, Richard Miller, William Owens and Craig Pierce are competing to represent the district. Reversing the decline of enrollment at North Rowan High School has stumped the school board for the past few years, though not for lack of mulling it over. Voters from all parts of the county will have an interest in how these North area candidates would like to solve the problem. Like Carpenter, Patty Williams is not seeking re-election to the South seat. Seeking to replace her are Mike Caskey, L.A. Overcash and Troy Rushing. This should be interesting. Overcash has served on the board; been there, done that. Caskey has run before; been there, wanted to do that. And Rushing, executive director of Church of God Children’s Home in Concord for 16 years, brings a fresh perspective. Should be interesting. The third seat, representing West, has been a safe bet for incumbent Kay Wright Norman for some time; she won her first election to the board 15 years ago. But she has some strong challengers. Eric Trail, an assistant principal in Cabarrus County, used to work in the Rowan-Salisbury system and ran two years ago against Jim Emerson, the board’s chair. The third candidate, Donna Hogue, works in early childhood education and has the perspective of a parent with children in all three levels of the system right now -- elementary, middle and high school. • Oct. 14, 6-7:30 p.m., Rowan County Board of Commissioners. This is the grand finale, the race for the board with the greatest power to set the course for Rowan County and shape its image, the county commission. Three seats on the five-member board are up for election. On the Republican side, incumbent Tina Hall was eliminated in the primary, leaving Jon Barber and Chad Mitchell to seek re-election. The other Republican who survived the primary is Jim Sides, a twotime veteran of the board. Democrats also

have experience on the ticket: Leda Belk is a former board member, and Bill Burgin has served on Salisbury City Council and the Rowan-Salisbury Board of Education. • • • Post readers are inquisitive and plugged-in, and you have provided the best questions to ask candidates at our forums. So, please, ponder these races and send us questions that Dr. Bitzer can ask the candidates. Send as many as you want. What are the most important issues to you in this election? Let us hear about them. Here’s how to get questions to us: • E-mail: • Mail: Editor, Salisbury Post. P.O. Box 4839, Salisbury, NC 28144 • Deliver by hand to the Post at 131 W. Innes St. • Fax: 704-633-0009 • Call me: 704-797-4244 • Post your questions as comments at the end of this column at I will forward all of the questions to Dr. Bitzer as soon as I get them. My interest in handling the questions is to learn what issues are on voters’ minds so we can address them in the Post’s election coverage. We hope to begin our series of candidate stories Sept. 13 with a district court judge race and finish by Oct. 13 with county commissioners — just in time for early voting. News happens, so the schedule of stories might change or stretch out. Voter dissatisfaction and frustration over the economy will play big roles in the 2010 elections, according to national pundits. Rowanvoters can at least be happy that they have good options. The slate shows depth of experience, from sheriff to county commission. This is different from the off years when yahoos come out of the woodwork to get their name on the ballot, never to be heard from again. Many of this year’s candidates have poured years of their lives into public service, and they’re asking for more. So send us your questions, study up on the candidates and vote. Early voting starts Oct. 14; the general election is Nov. 2. It’s your right. Use it. • • • Elizabeth Cook is editor of the Salisbury Post. E-mail: or 704-797-4244.

School budget outcome always precarious This is a continuing series of articles addressing “frequently asked questions.”

cuts close to $1.5 million over the year before.

Question 2: What was the final outcome of the school system’s budget and how many teachers were cut? What will the school system do with the new federal JOBS funds to bring back teachers?

To balance the budget

A: Discussions on the school system budget begin each year around January. The budget must be presented to various stakeholders and approved by the Board of Education by April in order to be sent to the Board of County Commissioners in early May. Due to this restrictive time frame, there are many unknowns in the budget. This past year was even more uncertain than previous years due to the economic climate and the state budget deficits. JUDY Many people have forGRISSOM gotten that the school system handled a loss in funds greater than $10 million last year and an additional loss of $1.5 million this current school year. The cuts that were made last year were not restored this year. So, we began our budget development knowing that the cuts could not be counted again. The funding from the Rowan County Board of Commissioners was “held harmless” with an increase only covering mandatory increases in health insurance and retirement matches for locally paid staff. We began our final budget development requiring additional

The $1.5 million cut for the 2010-2011 school year was handled through: • Freezing positions of retiring administrators at the central office, meaning that our remaining employees have assumed even more responsibilities. • Elimination of hiring incentives in the areas of exceptional children, math and science. • Elimination of 20 assistants that were funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. • Two and a half assistant principals. • Locally paid field trips. We were able to reduce our utilities budget through energy savings created with implementing a four 10-hour day workweek for all system sites during the summer. With a grant from the Blanche and Julian Robertson Family Foundation, we were able to replace the funding cut for elementary field trips. To balance the budget, it was necessary to use $709,082 from the school system’s fund balance. The school system’s fund balance is like a savings account. Spending fund balance for recurring salaries or other initiatives will soon deplete the account. Although there is no requirement by law for the school system to have a fund balance, it is recommended that 8 percent of the overall operating budget be available for emergencies, and the auditors certainly check

to see that we keep an appropriate amount. Our employees will continue to be conservative to keep from digging deeper into the fund balance because of future needs. We will continue to seek grant funding to help with major system initiatives.

JOBS Initiative The news that North Carolina and the Rowan-Salisbury School System would be receiving funding from the JOBS Initiative is exciting. The reason for the excitement is that the federal stimulus funds will not be available next year, resulting in our school system losing an additional $6 million dollars or 176 positions. The JOBS Initiative funding will cover only $4 million. So as exciting as it is, the amount will still not cover anticipated additional losses for next year. The funding is available until September of 2012, so we will be recommending to the school board that we do not spend these funds until next school year. Reserving these funds will prevent sending home huge numbers of teachers and other staff members during the 2011-2012 school year. Because of cuts made at the central office and using a portion of the fund balance, the school system is beginning the school year without cutting classroom teachers and without raising class sizes. The focus is and will continue to be on the needs of our students. • • • Dr. Judy Grissom is superintendent of the Rowan-Salisbury School System.




Obama’s glowing villain T

Protecting kids when the storm hits n the lead-up to Hurricane Earl, we heard a word we’ve never heard before in disaster preparedness: “children.” In talking about the lessons of Katrina, FEMA administrator Craig Fugate told CNN: “One of the things we’ve got to be prepared for are children and infants.” Finally, someone at the federal level has gotten the message that children can’t be treated as short adults in emergencies, that they have different needs than grown-ups. That’s the good news. The bad news? With the worst of the hurricane season upon us, Congress hasn’t gotten around to doing anything to STEVE AND protect those COKIE ROBERTS kids. The sad Katrina stories about homeless dogs and cats or desperate people refusing to leave their flooded homes without their pets moved lawmakers to act with what can be considered lightning speed for Capitol Hill. Only a little more than a year after the storm, President Bush signed the PETS law, which requires FEMA to ensure “emergency preparedness operational plans (including evacuation plans) take into account the needs of individuals with household pets and service animals.” The law also authorizes funding “for animal emergency-preparedness purposes, including the procurement, construction, leasing or renovating of emergency shelter facilities” to accommodate people with their pets and service animals in an evacuation. We’re happy for the dogs and cats; we wouldn’t want to leave our dog behind in an emergency, either. But we just wish the kids had some similar consideration. Katrina separated more than 5,000 kids from their parents. Think how terrifying that would be. Some families didn’t find their kids for six months. But more than half the states still don’t require schools and daycare centers to have plans in place to reach children’s families in an emergency and reunite them with their kids. Daycare centers also aren’t required to have an evacuation and relocation plan in




Workers board up windows in Nags Head on Sept. 2 as Hurricane Earl churned along the coast. most states, and there are few provisions in place for kids with disabilities. Some improvements did follow on the Katrina fiasco. In the storm’s aftermath, children in shelters saw and heard things children should never see and hear. There was no way to shield kids from what was going on around them — families with infants and toddlers lived in open spaces next to single young men. There weren’t enough cribs, diapers, bottles and pediatric medicines. There certainly were no toys or programs in place to deal with children’s fears or simply to occupy their time. In international disasters, nongovernmental organizations instantly swing into action to provide all of those things for children and to embark on family reunification. Some of those organizations, such as Save the Children, where Cokie is a trustee, have prevailed on emergency-preparedness officials in this country to be more mindful of the problems of kids in shelters or FEMA trailer compounds.


Why not help preserve some businesses? I am in full support of comments made by the Rev. Stephen Haines and Dr. Clyde Young concerning construction of the addition of First United Methodist Church. If not for interference from the Historic Preservation Commission, that project might well have been completed by now. Furthermore, Salisbury presents a very unfriendly business environment from hysteric (yes, the spelling is correct) oversight to county building inspections to sign ordinances. This is a very business un-friendly town. In fact, all of North Carolina can fall under that heading. We just returned from vacation in Gatlinburg, Tenn., where we enjoyed gasoline prices that were 20 to 30 cents less per gallon than in Rowan County, some of which is due to lower fuel taxes in Tennessee. In its June 24, 2009, edition, the Post published an article about a meeting in which more than 400 ideas for growing business in Salisbury were put forth. All that does is reek of more local government regulations and red tape for business owners or prospective owners to wade through. The ideal situation would be a two-year moratorium on all regs, including those for the people who would turn Salisbury into one big historic relic. A moratorium also would include no sign ordinances, no interference from the uptown Salisbury gang, City Council, Chamber of Commerce, EDC and others. In other words, if someone wants to open a business, let them do as they please and trust them to blend in with surrounding structures. What Salisbury needs as much as anything is an uptown parking deck. There are few places to park and not enough handicapped parking and accessibility. A parking deck should be a priority consideration before a convention center, which this town doesn’t really need. — Bill Ward Salisbury

Through their efforts, Congress created a National Commission on Children and Disasters, and the Red Cross and FEMA have worked with the commission to make shelters safer and friendlier for children. Still, at a recent commission meeting, FEMA’s Fugate admitted: “Children are a part of every community, but too often in the past they’ve been left out of emergency planning or thought of only after the initial plan has been written.” He pledged to work to change that. But FEMA can only do so much. Congress must act if localities are to have the money to get schools up and running as quickly as possible — after Katrina, more than 50,000 kids only erratically attended school for an entire year — and fund daycare for small children so their parents can get back to work. In the Senate, Democrat Mary Landrieu and Republican Lamar Alexander have introduced a bill that would do just that, plus provide medical care and mentalhealth counseling for kids. But it’s

in legislative limbo because of differences among Democrats about whether payments for schools in affected areas would include nonpublic schools. That disagreement is keeping the Congress from ensuring that states have adequate emergency plans in place to evacuate kids from schools and get them back together with their families as the legislation requires — that’s the very least that the lawmakers should insist on for our kids. Otherwise, when the next big storm comes along — and one will hit sooner or later — we could once again find children in unsafe situations, months elapsing before they find their families and out of school for far too long. But hey, there’s something to be grateful for — the pets should do all right this time around. • • • Steve Roberts’ most recent book is “From Every End of This Earth” (HarperCollins).

More debt isn’t the answer P resident Obama says “some powerful special interests” have been talking about him “like a dog,” and it’s true, especially that incredibly, awesomely powerful interest known as the American public, but there is a way out. He can quit coming up with policy ideas like an immediate $50 billion, anti-recession expenditure to be part of the creation of a major new federal apparatus known as an infrastructure bank. It’s an absurdity on all kinds of grounds, not the least of which is that we’ve heard infrastructure promises before. The original, $862 billion stimulus JAY was supposed to be AMBROSE more than anything a shovel-ready plan to spiff up our highways, bridges, railways, runways and the like. But a funny thing happened to it on the way to economy-enhancing glory. It was waylaid by ineptitude and political corruption. Some unproductive pork here and another earmark over there, and pretty soon you had grandiose waste while the jobless suffered. Let’s be clear, though, that the stimulus package was something worse than a missed opportunity. It was first off based on the proposition that if you yank money out of the hands of those who ordinarily make the economy go and then turn it over to central planners, miracles will occur. With the wisdom that comes only by being miles away from the action and having extremely limited knowledge, the philosopher kings in Washington would spend this money with far superior results than you could get from entrepreneurs on the spot, and, voila, there would be dancing in the streets. Things don’t work that way. Recessions usually fix themselves without a lot of hocus pocus from the government except for the magic of retreat, which is to say, spending less. Germany tried austerity. Austerity worked. We tried the opposite, and watch out for those Washington blusterers whose calculations would have you stand up and applaud. They did not get to their estimates of millions of jobs saved mostly through empirically based head counts, but by using the same formula that was used to justify the experiment in the first place. It’s like proving a theory by repeating what it says. The stimulus most likely worsened the recession, helping to make these last few months less the “recovery

summer” that Obama pledged than a summer of charade and excuses. This expenditure contributed mightily to a debt that could ultimately wreck us and is currently part of what’s keeping businesses from expanding. They’re worried about inflation, the burden of thousands of new regulations and a health-care remake likely to impose myriad new costs and complications into their lives. Not least of all they are worried about higher taxes. Obama is talking now about lowering investment taxes for businesses, a potentially good thing, but ASSOCIATED PRESS why does he President Obama has also want to called for a $50 billion give us still more debt infrastructure bank to through inimprove the nation’s creased transportation netspending? works. You’d think that if he is serious about the need for billions more on transportation infrastructure, he would work with Congress to redirect some of the stimulus billions still unspent, and you would think, too, that he would put this bank on hold until he has a definite, concrete plan to cut spending significantly elsewhere. If he and his Democratic Congress could perform that feat, he could calm the concerns of small business owners about reinstituting rates at top levels in existence prior to the Bush tax cuts. Investment tax reductions will be unlikely to make up for that, and if fiscal responsibility demands more revenue, and if the Democrats really believe their laughable lie that the Bush cuts did little to help the middle class, well, reinstitute all those taxes prior to November. The result would be yet more widespread outrage, and not just because of fat cat power blocs. That claim of our overly clever, highly partisan, blame-Bush-for-everything president is aimed at making it seem there are no disinterested critiques of his policies and no legitimate populist anger. Guess again. • • • Jay Ambrose is the former Washington director of editorial policy for Scripps Howard newspapers.

he Obama White House is badly in need of a villain. It needs someone to rail against. During the 2008 campaign, Barack Obama had President George W. Bush to blame for all the nation’s ills. He still does, but blaming the previous president quickly gets old in American politics. And Bush has been admirably reticent in American politics, refusing to DALE comment on MCFEATTERS his successor’s performance in office, although he must be sorely tempted. Bush has kept busy on his book and his library, only emerging in public life to cochair, along with former President Bill Clinton, the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund. And how can you demonize a guy looking out for impoverished earthquake victims? No, Bush’s days as a demon are pretty much over. The likely Republican presidential candidates aren’t in positions where they really do or decide anything. And with the exception of superstar Sarah Palin, most Americans couldn’t pick the GOP presidential hopefuls out of a police lineup. Tim Pawlenty? Mitch Daniels? Now the White House thinks it has found its villain: House Republican leader John Boehner, a 20-year veteran of Congress. Boehner would have an obscurity problem — a poll this spring found that 55 percent of the American people had never heard of him — except for two things: It’s quite possible he’ll be the next speaker of the House, a very powerful position and third in line to the president. And he has this deep, alarmingly unnatural tan. The man, depending on the TV lighting, is close to being orange. Obama even made a joke about it at the White House correspondents’ dinner this spring. Said the president, “In the next hundred days our bipartisan outreach will be so successful that even John Boehner will consider becoming a Democrat. After all, we have a lot in common. He is a person of color — although not a color that appears in the natural world.” Boehner says he comes by his tan from mowing his grass and mountain-biking. But he doesn’t look like a man whose leisure activities include cutting grass and riding a bicycle. He looks like a man who smokes, drinks and plays golf and would make a convincing pit boss in a movie about Las Vegas — all qualities, by the way, that Washington appreciates. Remember, the president was — and maybe still is — a secret smoker. The golf and the beer we already know about. Just recently Boehner gave a speech in Cleveland blasting Obama’s handling of the economy and suggested that the president fire his entire economic team. This week Obama returned to the same venue. Reported Politico, “The fact that the White House has admitted that Wednesday’s trip is a direct response to Boehner’s Cleveland speech of Aug. 24 shows that the president is honing in on Boehner as a political punching bag.” The newspaper The Hill headlined its story about Obama going after Boehner, “Seeking bogeyman, Dems’ eyes fall on would-be Speaker.” In his speech, Obama took the unusual step of repeatedly singling out Boehner by name as a friend of the rich and the special interests whose policies would be “bad for America.” Boehner’s office appeared pleased by the presidential attention. Aides said the “unprecedented” attacks smacked of panic and desperation. Maybe so, but every president needs a villain or two and it appears Obama has found his. • • • Dale McFeatters writes for Scripps Howard News Service.


SITE FRoM 1d ter the death here of her firefighter son, Christian. “My son’s beautiful remains are forever scattered,” she says. “Ground zero is a burial ground.” Since that awful day, the story of the site has been through what seem like endless chapters. There were battles over the land — over the prolonged search for victims’ remains that kept turning up more tiny body parts in the soil five years later. The developer and insurance companies fought over payouts. The state and the developer haggled over financing and how many towers would be rebuilt. Some families successfully challenged the creation of a freedom museum at the site, and some questioned whether a planned performing arts center there is appropriate. How best to pay respect to the dead? Now, most everyone has staked out a position on the planned Islamic cultural center, to include a mosque, auditorium and other facilities about two blocks from the construction barriers. Some say the location should be moved out of sensitivity, because the Sept. 11 hijackers claimed to act in the name of Islam. Others say that moving the mosque would be bowing to intolerance and curtailing religious freedom. Through all of this conflict, ground zero has been shuttered. Few have walked on its soil, except for the workers who cleared the site and those who are rebuilding it. Family members and others invited to the yearly memorial ceremonies have been allowed in, as was the pope on his 2008 pilgrimage. But most have been unable to enter. At first, some people walked up to the barricades to post pictures of the missing, others to keep watch on the dead. More came. Out-of-towners started filling the sidewalks at the edge of the construction, holding up maps and asking passersby: What’s the best spot to see ground zero? With so few allowed in, everyone who journeyed to this untouchable space could make of it what they would. So what happens after the planned memorial opening on Sept. 11, 2011 — when the public is allowed inside the walled-off space? Although the rules haven’t been finalized, one could imagine a jogger passing through and pausing to take a drag off her water bottle, a group of kids breakdancing for tips, a businessman unwrapping his sandwich for lunch on a sunny bench. Sacred or no, in many ways this space will belong to the American people — those who come to mourn the most personal of losses, those who come for all the other reasons, and even those who don’t come at all, but know this place is now no longer just a hole in the ground. The memorial was always intended to become a vibrant space again — to “be stitched back into the grid of lower Manhattan,” says professor James E. Young, a member of the panel that selected the memorial design. “Short of turning the whole thing into a cemetery with fences and saying this is somehow inviolable ... we knew that even sacred spaces live in public use,” he says. Some proposals had called for the footprints of the twin towers to be cordoned off, with only family members of the victims allowed there. But that “suggests that only the families of victims own it,” Young says. “What about those who were injured? What about those who escaped? What about the rest of the city, which also felt surely violated and even victimized by the attacks?” Many around the nation — even around the world — felt that they had been hit, too. A newspaper headline in Paris said after the attack: “We’re all Americans.” How much reverence will be given to this open space in the city’s maze, which still carries for many the memories of screams and dust and panic? Can it stay sacred? That question was answered long ago, says a fam-

ily member. “The memorial museum is selling souvenirs, for God’s sake,” says Diane Horning, who lost her son, Matthew. “You can’t stand in ground zero without seeing Century 21’s big banners advertising whatever their special is. ... This hasn’t been sacred space since the day they put the first rivets in something. It’s office buildings, it’s places to eat, it’s everything but sacred space.” There’s even a strip club three blocks from the construction site. At New York Dolls Gentlemen’s Club, a woman in a red sequined Gstring takes a break from platform dancing and leans over to rub her calves. In the background, Alicia Keys sings on a recording about New York’s concrete jungle. Outside, where William Dean is handing out flyers promoting the dancers, he says he’s used to people yelling at him about the unseemly proximity to ground zero. His answer: “We’re making a buck like anyone else.” Just one block closer to ground zero, it’s still uncertain whether the cultural center and mosque known as Park51 will be built. But this would-be neighbor has aroused a reaction unlike any of the other disputes over this land. The mosque furor has brought 9/11 back to the fore of America’s consciousness. It had been quiet for a long time, bogged down in the bureaucracy of what would be built, for how much and when. Amid all the disputes and all the compromise, the World Trade Center site had lost some of its hold on the public’s imagination. Freedom Tower, the site’s signature skyscraper, rising a symbolic 1,776 feet, was renamed One World Trade Center, thought a better draw for corporate tenants. Even the ethereal design imagined by architect Daniel Libeskind came back to earth, restrained by the boundaries of physics and financing. The plan for the memorial pools set in the footprints of the towers, though, remains. At the 9/11 Memorial Preview Site at ground zero, a mob of visitors is snapping pictures, clustering in around a small-scale model of what this place is supposed to become. There are the footprints, with lines standing in for what are to be the largest manmade waterfalls in the nation. There are tall, elegant buildings. There are tiny trees, each miniature trunk no thicker than a pushpin. It looks peaceful. And it looks ready to come to life.

AGHANISTAN FRoM 1d of summer. These mud huts were surrounded by walled-in courtyards. But this village was built around 600 years ago, or so I was told. Before coming here I had seen a lot of pictures of villages in Afghanistan, and quite often they had the same ancient look to them. I assumed the photographer sought out the more picturesque scenes to shoot. But as the aircraft lifted away from the runway, we passed over a local inhabited village, and the only real difference in comparing the ruins to what I saw below me was that the walls were not crumbling, and there were signs of occupation. There were no signs of electricity, very few people were outdoors, and few cars. These “modern” mud huts would have window openings but usually no sign of window frames, glass or screens. Many of the doorways had a door, but not all of them. The yards were almost always enclosed by tall walls — I assume to keep livestock in and predators out. There were few trees but many green fields, and these too were surrounded by short walls. I could see a few workers who were cutting and stacking by hand some form of wheat. To the southwest of the airfield is a town with electricity and ugly cement apartment buildings, but this village harkens back to life as it existed 1,000 or more years before. I crossed a mountain ridge into a large valley, and the cultivated fields began to grow larger. The groupings of houses were larger, and eventually there were some signs of modern buildings. I was nearing the city. But as I passed over them, I realized the larger groupings were simply bigger collections of the same mud huts. The signs of modern buildings and small industries were actually an Afghani military compound. The workers were still in the fields, most working by hand, but now I could see the occasional tractor as well. There was a scrap yard littered with the rusting hulks of Soviet-built armored vehicles left over from the Soviet invasion decades ago. Some I could recognize, while others had been stripped to mere skeletons. Suddenly the homes began to have

Courtyards and a few vehicles are visible in this aerial photo of a residential area between bagram airfield and Kabul. electricity, satellite dishes, and power lines crisscrossed the landscape. There were modern buildings, but they looked like islands in a sea of stucco structures. Kabul resembled a mix between the cities of eastern Turkey and Baghdad. But unlike

as the author notes, ‘Children are children wherever you go’ — and they’re usually ready to smile for a photograph.

Baghdad, the area was much greener and didn’t have that desert look to it. There were apartment buildings, some painted in shades of teal, red, peach or other bright colors. During my trip back to Bagram, we hopped from FOB (Forward Operating Base) to FOB, and stopped at a couple of COPs (Combat Outposts). As we left the city the scene below quickly transitioned from sturdy homes to villages; villages to secluded tents surrounded by herds of goats and sheep. The villages were still of the same stone/brick construction, covered with a layer of dried mud stucco. But now and then you would see the occasional brightly painted window frame, possibly even with glass in the frames. There were cars and trucks to be seen, but never in any quantity. At the small villages next to the COPs where we landed, children would rush up to the fence to wave at us. Children are children, no matter where you go. A satellite dish on a home with no windows or power lines leading to it means someone has a generator. Modern touches that look totally out of place in a home that was built with 2,000-year-old technology. But the overall impression is one of stepping back in time, much more so that I had experienced in Iraq, and much more so than I had expected.

Author to sign copies of his debut science fiction novel Murphy author Paul M. Schofield will sign copies of his debut science fiction novel, “Trophy,” at Literary Bookpost, 110 S Main St., on Saturday, Sept. 18, from 1:30-4 p.m. The first in a series of five books, “Trophy” is an action-packed sci-fi adventure story that can be enjoyed by the entire family and has received very favorable comments from readers. In the future, all humanity is governed by the New Victorian Empire, which developed after the 21st century collapse of civilization as we know it. The Empire is managed by a massive computer system, known as CENTRAL, and overseen by the Ten Guardians. As a consequence of the collapse, the human race has been kept alive by extraordinary methods, but is destined for certain extinction. Convinced that time travel will be the means to its salvation, the Empire turns its attention to Louis Franelli, a brilliant ex-Empire engineer now in the employ of villainous Galen Bestmarke. Franelli alone has unraveled the complex secret of time travel through the mysterious Keyhole, an anomaly in space. Bestmarke, a vicious criminal, is testing the use of the Keyhole to develop his evil plan of a slave trade through time, and has captured and turned both animals and men into living trophies during his test journeys through the Keyhole. Now the Empire is hot on his trail. During a daring surprise attack on Bestmarke’s ship as it exits the Keyhole, Lt. Janet Rogerton successfully rescues two of the trophies and captures Franelli. In a series of rapidly moving plot twists, Franelli and a Guardian are abducted by Bestmarke; two of the trophies, the 20th century man Martin and a magnificent black panther, are revitalized by the Guardians with cybernetic bodies, forming a formidable mind-linked team; the sinister businessman Izax enters the story with dreadful consequences for Martin and his father, who is also one of Bestmarke’s living trophies; and the Empire unveils its superior new ship, the Clipper, in its quest to apprehend Bestmarke.

Characters make familiar plot engrossing “Backseat Saints,” by Joshilyn Jackson. Grand Central Publishing of New York and Boston. 344 pp. $24.99. BY ELIZABETH COOK

Who is he? Any woman ever dominated by a jealous man knows the real question behind his endless queries. Where has she been? Why did it take so long? Who was there? . Who is he? Those three words rule the life of Ro Grandee, the main character in Joshilyn Jackson’s compelling fourth novel, “Backseat Saints.” To keep her in line, husband Thom Grandee uses his fists, the back of his hand and the toe of his boot, aided and abetted by family members who look the other way. Jackson follows other novelists who have made domestic violence the catalyst for their stories — “The Color Purple” and “The Burning Bed” come to mind. Her victimization is tamer, with little sexual aggression. But her life is very much in danger, and that threat muddles her thinking just the same. Waivering between keeping the peace vs. keeping her sanity, Ro has an encounter that tips the scales. “It was an airport gypsy who told me I had to kill my husband,” Ro says in the first sentence of the book. From the beginning, Jackson weaves together the strands of Ro’s torment — a runaway mother, an abusive father, an affinity for mischief and a hus-

band destined to quash her soul or die trying. This is a good, relatively quick read — darker than “chick lit,” with touches of gallows humor. Its family dynamics have a Southern gothic feel to them — born of ingrained attitudes and destined for tragedy, with a family gun shop thrown in for good measure. But whose tragedy? That’s the real question that propels the reader forward. The plot pits the petite, increasingly malleable Ro against her beefy husband, an exjock who went from ruling the school to kowtowing to his father. Now working under his father’s thumb at the family gun shop, Thom takes his repressed anger home each day, ready to pounce on Ro the minute she overcooks dinner, sounds sassy or looks at him wrong.

The plot is less predictable than it sounds. Ro’s parents are wild cards who add enough twist to the plot to make it unique. Throw in some magical realism, and you have an engrossing story. Jackson’s previous novels in-

clude “gods in Alabama” (the small “g” is correct), “Between, Georgia” and “The Girl Who Stopped Swimming.” Ro is a minor character plucked from the pages of “gods in Alabama” and fleshed out in “Backseat Saints” as a much deeper, more troubled person than the folks back in Alabama ever knew. And who are the backseat saints? They are the ghosts of Ro’s Catholic upbringing, showing up during times of distress. Their value to the story is more comical than spiritual. For example, Ro flees the scene after firing at her husband and finds she has passengers in the car — “Francis, patron saint of cars and drivers” is accompanied by Michael and then one more: “I must have wept out Mary’s name for comfort, because she was in the back seat as well, even though she had to squash into the narrow middle seat with her patient feet on the hump.” Sacrilege? Not really. Jackson just takes the saints off their pedestals and brings them down to Ro’s plane of existence. She needs their help.

BY MARISSA CREAMER Rowan Public Library

It’s been a discouraging summer for many gardeners. After a promising start in the spring, we were overtaken by heat and drought, and now my garden is not what I had envisioned. Perennials have declined and weeds have flourished. Gardens need continual attention; you must always be on the lookout for weeds, pests or signs of disease. Then there’s watering, deadheading and dividing. When the summer heat arrives, it’s easy to avoid these tasks, and before you know it, things seem too far gone. But gardeners are always looking to the future. There’s always a new spring, fresh with promise, to look forward to. As we head into fall, we have the chance to plan and prepare for next year. Perhaps it’s time to take a new approach and find a way to streamline garden maintenance. In “The New Low Maintenance Garden,” Valerie Easton claims she will show you how to have a beautiful, productive garden and the time to enjoy it. Easton is a horticultural librarian and national garden writer, and her garden is her laboratory. When she realized she no longer had the energy or enthusiasm to begin her spring garden, she decided to simplify her approach to gardening. Her goal is a garden that provides a place of respite and qui-

et contemplation, and not a source of never-ending chores. Easton provides guidance in lowmaintenance garden design, including hardscaping and appropriate plant choices, as well as tips for simplifying routines and working with nature. She shows you how to incorporate edibles into your garden and how to create beautiful, carefree containers of mixed plantings. The numerous color photographs and profiles of real gardens offer inspiration for your own landscape. If you would like to make more efficient use of rainwater in your garden, you might be interested in the new book “Rain Gardening in the South: Ecologically Designed Gardens for Drought, Deluge and Everything in Between,” by horticulturists Helen Kraus and Anne Spafford. This guide is designed to help you create a landscape that makes use of water that runs off roofs, driveways and other hard surfaces. A rain garden is an ecosystem that filters and uses the rainwater that moves through the landscape. Due to the selection of plants and the ability of a rain garden to store water, this type of garden is actually more drought tolerant than the average garden. Kraus and Spafford guide you through the design aspects of rain gardens, including location, size, garden style and plant selection, and provide tips for mak-

A Tribute to Novello keeps festival alive

First-time author brings his philosophy to Pfeiffer Whether laughing at the world with garment workers in Cambodia or talking with college students in Indiana, discussing scuba diving with lobster divers in Nicaragua or addressing a nonprofit in Florida, playing PlayStation with students in Kosovo or challenging high school students in the U.S. to see the world differently, Timmerman said he seeks to connect people through words and pictures. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I believe that if we reduce global issues to the stories of individual people, we can better see ourselves, our parents, our sons and daughters, and our hopes and struggles in one another,â&#x20AC;? the first-time book author explained. Timmermanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Where am I Wearingâ&#x20AC;? is this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s freshman read at Pfeiffer, a university-assigned book that new students are required to read during the First Year Experience Program called Pfeiffer Journey. The goal of the program is to build intellectual discussion around a shared book, engaging the students and creating common ground among new students. Pfeiffer Journey helps incoming students adjust to college life via seminars led by peer mentors and faculty. First year readers are selected by a committee of faculty, students and advisers. For details about Timmermanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s visit, contact Sylvia Hoffmire, assistant professor of English and director of the cultural program at Pfeiffer, at 704-463-3359 or

arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always pleasant on their own to create something to be savored, Davis argues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is no â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;perfect recipeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; for designing your ideal life, only your preferred recipe for â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;living it,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? she writes. In each chapter, Davis weaves a mix of personal anecdotes and self-help tips with a heavy emphasis on positive psychology. She suggests using the benefits of laughter, friendship and mindfulness to get through lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rough patches. Each subject has a themed recipe such as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Chocolate Meltdown Pieâ&#x20AC;? and a heavy helping of food puns including a â&#x20AC;&#x153;slice of insightâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;bite by biteâ&#x20AC;? tips for overcoming some of lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basic mental obstacles. While Davis is familiar with lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s challenges, such as illness, parenthood and death, she relies more heavily on lighthearted stories about speeding tickets, flip-flops and suburban challenges.

Thanks to a grass roots effort, A Tribute to Novello is scheduled for Oct. 1, 2 and 9. This effort, being led by University of North Carolina at Charlotte professor Mark West, will keep the spirit of Novello alive as the popular literary festival normally produced by Charlotte Mecklenburg Library will go on hiatus this year due to devastating budget cuts. West contacted Novello organizers as soon as he heard about the possible hiatus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I felt like the community had benefited from Novello for all these years and maybe it was time for the community to show its appreciation to the library for what the festival has come to mean,â&#x20AC;? said West. Instead of a weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth of events, A Tribute to Novello will take place over two consecutive weekends in October. Oct. 1 and 2 will feature adult authors and Oct. 9 will feature young adult and childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s authors. In addition, Novello Festival Press (NFP) will present its two most recent publications: â&#x20AC;˘ Oct. 2 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Topograph: New Writing from the Carolinas and the Landscape Beyond,â&#x20AC;? an anthology edited by Charlotte Viewpointâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jeff Jackson. â&#x20AC;˘ Oct. 9: The childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wings and Dreams: The Legend of Angel Fallsâ&#x20AC;? by Irania Macias Patterson with illustrations by Catherine Courtlandt McElvane. Pat Siegfried, a former librarian with the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library and owner of Black Forest Books and Toys, will head up the youth events. West will coordinate the adult events.

Jon C. Lakey/SaliSBuRy PoSt

Barefoot runner Jon Bolick tapes some of his toes to help minimize the blisters that can develop running on concrete or asphalt surfaces.

Bare yoursole Barefoot running attracting interest as athletes seek to minimize injuries BY KATIE SCARVEY

o one really looks twice at the many runners who pound the sidewalks of Salisbury, but it’s hard not to do a double-take when you see one with bare feet. If people are gawking at him, Jon Bolick of Greensboro isn’t aware of it, he says. He’s concentrating on his run, and perhaps on avoiding any shards of glass or sharp stones that might pierce his foot. Bolick, whose parents live in Salisbury, is part of a recent trend to embrace barefoot running. A former soccer player at East Rowan High School who went to Catawba College, the 27year-old Bolick says he didn’t start running until his early 20s. At that time, he was practicing martial arts, and he felt running would help him develop speed and quickness. On his first outing, he ran for two hours. “I definitely got the running high,” he says. Still, as he continued running, he had a hard time with shoes, he says. He dealt with pain in his right


knee, which he attributes to the cushioning in his running sneakers, which caused him to not totally plant his feet, he believes. He’d heard about barefoot running, and after he read the bestseller “Born to Run” by Christopher McDougall, he began to consider it more seriously. The first time he tried it, he ran only 2.5 miles, less than his normal distance, but he noticed that he ran faster than usual — because he was more comfortable, he believes. The only issue, he said, was that his feet, unused to running on abrasive surfaces, developed blisters. Now, he tapes the toes that are prone to blistering. He runs on a variety of surfaces, from grass to concrete sidewalks. Grass is definitely preferable, he says, and when running through town, he hops off the sidewalk whenever he can to take advantage of a grassy stretch. When running barefoot he usually keeps his distance to five miles or under, he says. Bolick has been running without shoes for about six months now.

ERIC DIMARZIO On his first barefoot running experience, compared to regular running

Hill, recently tried barefoot running for the first time. A cross-country runner when he attended Salisbury High School, DiMarzio shed his shoes in preparation for an upcoming seminar in Chapel Hill on barefoot running. “It was incredible and far beyond what I expected,” he said of his first barefoot outing. “I was told to run five minutes, planned on 10, and finally made myself stop after 15,” he wrote in a blog entry. “Every footfall was a cause for celebration, as opposed to every mile.” He says he was a bit fearful initially because his quadriceps had been sore, “but lo and behold,” he wrote, “when I tried running barefoot my quads did-

Ex’s harassment makes girlfriends flee Dear Amy: I am dating a man (”Larry”) who had an affair with a woman a number of years ago. The problem is that every time he begins dating again, this exlover starts going all psycho and harassing him with texts, ASK phone calls AMY and unannounced visits. She destroys his new relationships. She is now trying to do the same thing with us. Larry says she’s too unstable to break off all contact with her (she threatened to commit suicide a few weeks ago), and he gives her mixed signals by always answering her calls and texts, to the point of disrupting our time together. He has asked me not to confront her, even though I would like to. This has been going on nonstop for two months. What should I do? — Furious in D.C. Dear Furious: In human behavior, any established pattern will continue until someone chooses to act differently. In “Larry’s” case, his ex has laid the groundwork for destroying his romantic relationships. She is playing her part. Larry responds by tacitly encouraging (or at least not discouraging) her behavior. When Larry decides he has had enough, he will do things differently. He will ignore her many points of contact or call the police, for instance, if she menaces him at his home. According to you, he does nothing to change this pattern — and you don’t report that he

has even asked her to stop. These two will do their dance until you’ve had enough and end your relationship. Because he has not attempted to do things differently, I suggest you exit from this drama, sooner rather than later. Dear Amy: I divorced “Steven” several months ago after many years of marriage. Friends were shocked and puzzled by the divorce. One said she always thought we were “the perfect couple.” Unfortunately, my ex-husband is a sex addict. I came up with the names of 50 women (I know there were many more) with whom he had a sexual relationship. At any one time, he was seeing as many as 10 women. He kept a journal that described some of his encounters. Knowing about his promiscuity, I had to be tested for HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases. Here’s my dilemma: I know he’s still seeing as many women as possible. Most are probably clueless about what kind of guy he really is. He met most of the women over the Internet using an alias. He has been seeing some of these women for more than 10 years. I really don’t feel I should interfere in Steven’s life because we’re divorced, but should I alert any of the women as to his true nature? Or should I let them live with their delusions? — Conflicted

husband is sexually involved with, you would be giving them an important health warning (leave their delusions out of it). I suggest you set up a separate e-mail address for yourself and send a message like the following to the women whose contact information you can locate: “I was married to Steven for many years, and it has come to my attention that he has been sexually involved with many other women.

BAREFOOT FROM 1E Hartmann, an Irish physical therapist who advises worldclass distance runners, advocate barefoot running as a training tool, according to McDougall in “Born to Run.” Hartmann is one of many voices speaking out against orthotics and structured running shoes, which he believes have led to the “deconditioned musculature of the foot.” McDougall offers the example of runner Alan Webb, who went from flat-footed to high-arched through barefoot running drills, actually going down several shoes sizes as a result. Although many assume that barefoot running would painful, running sans shoes can actually be quite comfortable, with proper technique. Runners who want to try barefoot running are advised by experts to start with limited running sessions, not only because of the possibility of painful blisters but because muscles not called into action much by shoe-wearers will get a workout they’re not accustomed to. Calf and foot muscles need to be built up slowly. Barefoot running isn’t a new phenomenon, of course. Our ancestors undoubtedly ran without benefit of footwear, particularly as they hunted, and in recent times there have been worldclass barefoot runners. Ethiopian runner Abebe Bikila, often considered to be the greatest Olympic marathoner ever, won his first gold medal running barefoot in the 1960 Olympics, setting a world record to boot. (He did later wear shoes, in which he also performed well). Zola Budd of South Africa beat Mary Decker’s world record in the 5,000 meters while running unshod as a 16-year-old. Still, most people viewed these runners as exotic aberrations, not examples to emulate. Then, in 2001, Australian physical therapist Michael Warburton published a paper

Jon C. Lakey/SaliSbuRy POSt

With the short, quick stride common to barefoot runners, Jon bolick runs through downtown Salisbury. called “Barefoot Running,” in which he argued that the extra weight of shoes on one’s feet causes more problems than equivalent extra weight around one’s mid-section. In recent months, McDougall’s book has gotten even more people interested in going shoeless. A runner himself, McDougall set off on an epic journey that he recounts in “Born to Run.” He had a simple goal: to find out why his feet hurt. He couldn’t understand how, as a basically healthy human, he couldn’t manage to run without sustaining frequent and debilitating injuries. He tells the story of the Tarahumara Indians of Mexico’s Copper Canyon

region, whose members can run distances of 100 miles (and often, much more) in sandals made from old tires. He discovered members of the tribe running into their 80s and 90s with few running-related injuries. McDougall argues, with support from a Harvard paleoanthropologist, that humans evolved as distance runners in order to hunt and wear down game animals. He believes that today’s highly structured running shoes cause wearers to run unnaturally, with the heel striking first. The mechanics of barefoot running are different than running in athletic

shoes. Strides are quick and short. The feet and knees should be relaxed, with knees slightly bent. The runner steps straight down and lands on the ball of the foot — the forefoot — not the heel. The back is kept straight and hips slightly forward. The feet should land under the center of gravity, the hips. Many podiatrists, like Dr. James Mazur, are skeptical about barefoot running, although Mazur says that he’s open to learning more about the practice. Running in bare feet, he says, without any support, would likely increase the risk of overuse injuries.

If people do decide to give barefoot running a try, Mazur advises them do it in some type of minimalist footwear, to reduce the chance of their feet being injured by shards of glass or other debris, which can lead to infection. And he cautions that those with diabetes or vascular disease should not run barefoot. Dr. Chris Nagy, an orthopedic surgeon, is convinced that there is a lower incidence of injuries in unshod runners, although he emphasizes that having proper form is key to avoiding injury. Running with shoes can cause changes to the foot, he says, including weakening of the arch and the calf and

Achilles tendon. “Many of the muscles in the foot atrophy because we don’t use them,” he says. The foot is actually “quite flexible and adaptable to terrain,” he says, although that ability is not challenged when the foot is encased in a shoe. Although Nagy isn’t a runner, he does have a pair of Vibram Five Finger shoes and has recommended them to some of his running friends. Barefoot running, he says, decreases stress or pressure across the knee by 38 percent. McDougall advises people to trust their feet, In other words, let your sole be your guide.

barefoot runner Jon bolick hasn’t had a problem with injuries, although he does admit that in the summer, concrete and asphalt can get uncomfortably hot.

Japanese cult director in Venice with samurai film VENICE, Italy (AP) — Japanese cult director Takashi Miike says he remade the 1963 classic “Thirteen Assassins” to help Japan’s younger generation learn about the past. The film is set about 150 years ago, toward the end of the samurai period. An esteemed samurai, Shinzaemon Shimada, played by Japanese superstar Koji Yakusho — best known to international audiences for his roles in “Babel” and “Memoirs of a Geisha” — calls on 12 other elite warriors to end the sadistic rule of Lord Naritsugu. “I wanted the audience to realize that this story is not taking place in the remote past, but rather in a recent past when our grand-grand parents lived,” the director told a news conference Thursday ahead of the film’s premiere in competition for the Golden Lion. “It is our story, the story of our everyday life. In Japan, contemporary history is something children do not know very well.” The movie is a remake of Eiichi Kudo’s black-andwhite classic of the samurai genre. Stylish and intricately choreographed, the story

line presents the noble ideals often associated with samurai, for example, when early in the film Shimada says the greatest honor he could achieve as a samurai would be to die a “noble death.” “Fate smiles on me,” he says when the opportunity to face off against Lord Naritsugu comes his way. The film also relies on Miike’s trademark use of violence. He also gives each samurai a distinctive personality, deepening interest in the characters. The film comes to Venice competition with a strong production pedigree behind it. Jeremy Thomas, the project’s executive producer who met Miike in Venice a few years ago, worked on Bernardo Bertolucci’s 1987 Oscar-winning film “The Last Emper-
