S&P gives TIF thumbs down
BROTHERS IN ARMS
Kannapolis will pursue other financing for NCRC projects BY HUGH FISHER firstname.lastname@example.org
KANNAPOLIS — City Manager Mike Legg announced Monday night that Kannapolis did not receive a good enough rating from Standard and Poor’s to make the potential tax increment financing bond issue affordable. His statement at Monday’s Kannapolis City Council meeting puts to an end weeks of speculation about whether the bond rating agency would give the deal a favorable rating, allowing the city to pay less interest. “It’s not the best news, but we do have some alternatives that we’d like to put out there,” Legg told council members. The original plan in 2006 was for the city and Cabarrus County to partner and issue about $168 million in bonds through the tax increment financing process. Those bonds didn’t need a rating to make them a desirable investment before the economic crisis. Now, Legg said, the attempt at getting a rating wasn’t enough to attract investors without steep interest rates. “They did not give us the investment grade rating, which is a triple B or better, for this particular effort,” Legg said. That doesn’t mean the bonds are risky in and of

Laws regarding patient rights, police rights collide in recent suicide attempt case BY EMILY FORD email@example.com
Two laws collided last week when Alicia Waddell Bean, the former mayor of Spencer who held police at bay with a gun in 2009, attempted suicide at Rowan Regional Medical Center. The law governing the privacy of mental health patients trumped the right of police to investigate the incident, officials said. According to the UNC School of Government, the hospital was not required to notify police when Bean hung herself Sept. 19 or 20 in the LifeWorks Behavioral Health Center, which is part of the hospital. Bean survived and remains hospitalized, according to sources, but her condition is unclear. Mental health records are highly confidential, and the reporting requirements for possible criminal activity are different inside a mental health facility, Rowan County Assistant District Attorney Tom King said. School of Government faculty member Jeffrey Welty told local officials “the general rule is, mental health records are off-limits unless you have a court order,” King said. The hospital had the right to deny a police investigation last week, King said. “It was not obstruction of justice,” he said. “There is a different set of legal principles when it comes to mental health.” The Salisbury Police Department became aware of an alleged suicide attempt inside the hospital and

ESC collection letters shock Rowan County jobless Rowan man wins
State: Most won’t owe money Hundreds of jobless Rowan County residents opened their mailboxes in recent days to find letters saying they owe money to the N.C. Employment Security Commission. In some cases, the letters said they owe thousands of dollars. One caller to the Post who didn’t want to give her name said she got a letter informing her she owes $2,000. Others she met at the local Employment Security Commission office received letters saying they owe as much as $5,000. Larry Parker, a public information officer with the state Employment Security Commission, said most of those people will get more let-

ters. And, for most of them, the news will get better. “Most of those folks are going to get multiple letters that show, hopefully, that most of them don’t actually owe anything,” he said. He couldn’t say how many will end up owing money, only that it is being handled “on a case-by-case basis.” Parker said the letters are the result of “complicated accounting issues” that he couldn’t fully explain Monday evening. He said the issues arose, at least in part, when Congress extended unemployment benefits and created multiple tiers of eligibility for the jobless. While the state knew some Today’s forecast 74º/54º Morning fog
people would be eligible for extended benefits, the programs to pay them weren’t yet in place. So the Employment Security Commission paid them from a state account. “We paid them because they were eligible for it,” he said. “We just weren’t paying them out of the right place.” Parker said federal law prevents the state from simply moving money from one pot to another to make up for that. And he said the law requires the state to mail out the letters that have sent people to Employment Security Commission offices and phone lines. Parker said the state sent the letters to about 38,000 people across North Carolina last week. And he said some of them could end up getting as

many as six letters, one for each tier of benefit eligibility they moved through. But he said for most, the amount owed will decrease with each letter and zero out. Some might receive more money, he said. He urged patience and said people should contact the state, not local Employment Security Commission offices, with concerns. “We understand why you would open that first one and be upset,” he said. “But we’re asking folks to wait a day or two and see if you get any more letters, and if you don’t, call us.” The N.C. Employment Security Commission can be reached by phone at 866-7958877 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.

$750K in lottery A Rowan County man has won $750,000 in a N.C. Education Lottery scratch-off game, the state said in a press release. Randy Davidson, who the press release says is “a factory worker from Cleveland,” won the money in the Jumbo Bucks game. The press release said Davidson went two-fortwo when he bought tickets at a Troutman convenience store for the game, which the state lottery introduced Sept. 14. On the first $10 ticket, he won $25. The second scratch-off revealed a $750,000 grand prize. The odds of winning that prize: 945,000-1. The Post could not find contact information for Davidson this afternoon. The press release said he plans to use a portion of his winnings, worth $510,003 after taxes, to buy a new home for his grandmother. “She raised me and my little brother,” Davidson said. “We are real close.”

TIF FROM 1a themselves. The money to pay for a tax increment financing bond issue is already coming in from the North Carolina Research Campus. “The revenues are already there for this project. ... But that wasn’t enough.” Legg said Standard and Poor’s was skittish because only one taxpayer, David Murdock’s Castle & Cooke, was providing that revenue. As a result, Legg said, the city would probably only be able to sell enough bonds to get between $23 million and $24 million, as opposed to the $27 million hoped for. About half of that money would go to construct a new building for the Cabarrus Health Alliance, the project promised to Cabarrus County in exchange for its participation. “We were paying a lot of interest in that scenario for not as much bang for the buck,” Legg said. The solution, he said, will be to return to a financing model considered four years ago, but dropped at the time in favor of the tax increment financing bonds. Certificates of participation are another method of raising money by selling debt to investors. In 2007, Cabarrus County commissioners voted to have certificates of participation considered alongside tax increment financing as a possible form of financing. At the time, there was concern that taxpayers throughout Cabarrus County would be liable for the full amount of the debt if for some reason the owners of the Research Campus did not pay enough property taxes. The tax increment financing bonds would be repaid only with tax revenues from the downtown Research Campus district, which is where the main projects being funded are to take place. If the necessary tax monies didn’t come in, only Kannapolis would be responsible.
Legg said the chances of the city not being able to repay the bonds were very slim. In addition to the investments already made at the Research Campus, tax revenues for the property are already coming in. The state of North Carolina would have a 50 percent stake alongside local governments as well. But certificates of participation do require collateral, which in this case, Legg said, would be the Cabarrus Health Alliance building. It would at least nominally belong to the city until the debts were paid. Legg said that’s not unusual. County governments build schools regularly using certificates of participation, he said, and the school buildings belong to the county until they’re paid off, at which point they revert to the local school system. Certificates of participation weren’t a realistic option four years ago, he said. “At that time, we were talking about a $168 million obligation,” Legg said. “There was nowhere near enough collateral for that transaction.” “Now, we’re talking about a $30 million project fund,” he said. The interest rate might be less than 4 percent, as opposed to 8 percent or higher for a tax increment financing issue in this market. “More money would go into projects, and it would give us some flexibility to do some other things,” Legg said. But the time to make a decision will soon be here. Legg said the current budget was passed with a future bond sale in mind. “If we don’t do anything, we’ll have to regroup on budget midstream, and make some hard decisions,” Legg said. Legg said he would have more information for the council at its next meeting. Particularly, he wanted to know if selling certificates of participation would affect the city’s ability to sell general obligation bonds for public projects down the road. “I need a good answer on that, and I don’t have it yet,” Legg said. “My opinion is, the risk is
minimal,” Legg said. Legg also noted that county commissioners seemed to favor certificates of participation at the time of the original deal. Councilman Kenneth Geathers asked whether there would be any downside to the city owning the Cabarrus Health Alliance building. Legg said he and the city’s attorney, Wally Safrit, will work with county attorney Richard Koch and N.C. Sen. Fletcher Hartsell, who is the attorney for the Cabarrus Health Alliance. “Hopefully, (the building) is the only collateral that would be required.” Council member Roger Haas noted the building would cost more than the amount Legg had said the county would receive from the revenue pool. “Who makes up the difference?” he asked. Legg noted that the Cabarrus Health Alliance currently rents a facility from Cabarrus County now. No official action was taken. After the meeting, Legg said he didn’t think that Standard and Poor’s felt the tax increment financing was a dangerous investment. “It’s just an unknown,” Legg said. “In this economy, rating agencies are going to be very conservative in their decisions.” Legg said the city backs the investment through contributions to the general fund. “It is city debt,” Legg said. “City Council has to get comfortable with that.” Contact Hugh Fisher via the editor’s desk at 704-7974244.
POLICE FROM 1a wanted to investigate to rule out foul play, Chief Rory Collins said. When hospital employees would not discuss the case citing patient privacy laws, police consulted with the district attorney’s office, “as is the norm in any case where a legal opinion is needed,” Collins said in a statement released Monday afternoon. The DA’s office sought an opinion from the School of Government, not the N.C. Attorney General’s Office, as Collins originally indicated. According to N.C. General Statute Chapter 122-C, which details privacy protections for patients who are admitted into a licensed mental health facility, “the hospital was not under any legal obligation to report this incident to local law enforcement authorities,” Collins said. Collins had a “legitimate concern” and was “trying to figure out proper protocols,” King said. Police felt they needed to determine if a crime had occurred, King said. “Without conducting a criminal investigation, you can’t determine if something was done by a person’s own hands,” King said. But other than a few exceptions to the state law including gun and knife wounds, the hospital is not required to report incidents that occur inside LifeWorks, King said. “It appears to me you’ve got two areas of law running head-on into each other,” he said. King said he is not sure how mental health patients

are protected from crimes. “That’s a good question,” he said. “That’s part of the quandary that we’re all in.” The state gives mental health records additional protection, King said, “and then you throw HIPAA in the mix, and it becomes a very complicated legal scenario.” HIPAA is the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. “It’s a prickly legal situation,” King said. If the treating physician in a psychiatric ward suspects an injury was sustained from criminal action, he or she can report it, King said. Suicide and attempted suicide are not crimes. But authorities are often called to rule out foul play at a scene other than the hospital, King said. “Until there is a criminal investigation, no one can reach that conclusion,” he said. “Things are not what they always appear to be.” Throughout this process, administrative staff from both the police department and the hospital took part in discussions “in order to bring this matter to an appropriate resolution,” Collins said. Hospital staff pledged to cooperate with authorities to the extent legally appropriate and assured police they would abide by whatever legal determination was made, he said. “This situation is very unfortunate and highly unusual,” Collins said. “The overall goal of the police department in this, as in all situations, is to ensure that the rights of individuals are protected and
that each situation is handled within legal guidelines and with due compassion.” The relationship between the police department and hospital “has and continues to be very strong,” he said, “and we both work hard to provide an excellent level of service to our community.” King said he also sought the opinion of the leading mental health legal expert at the School of Government last week, but Mark Botts was on leave. Contacted today by the Post, Botts said he would need more information to form an opinion. Rather than a local law enforcement agency, Botts said he thought the state agency with licensing authority over mental health facilities might investigate the incident. A spokesperson with the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services last week told the Post he could not confirm if a complaint has been filed against Rowan Regional Medical Center as a result of the incident. Jim Jones said the N.C. Division of Health Service Regulation did not have any staff in the hospital Thursday. It is not clear how word got out that Bean, who served six years as an elected official, was a patient at LifeWorks. When the Post called the hospital to check on her condition Sept. 20, an employee said Bean was in the intensive care unit. A short time later, hospital officials said they could not confirm whether she was a patient. Contact Emily Ford at 704797-4264.

Groundbreaking to begin I-85 bridge replacement project BY KARISSA MINN email@example.com
The N.C. Department of Transportation will break ground at 10 a.m. Wednesday on phase one of the I-85 Corridor Improvement Project, which includes replacement of the Yadkin River bridge. “Turning over the first shovel of dirt on this project will be a historic moment,” N.C. Transportation Secretary Gene Conti said in a press release. “I look forward to sharing it with motorists who will benefit greatly from the improvements we’ll make to this critical stretch of I-85.” Conti and Gov. Bev Perdue are expected to attend the groundbreaking ceremony in Davidson
County, said Transportation Department Division 9 engineer Pat Ivey. The legislative delegations from Rowan and Davidson counties, as well as local elected officials, have been invited. The ceremony will take place at the intersection of Clark Road and Seven Oaks Road, just south of Clark Road off Interstate 85 (Exit 85) south of Lexington. From Salisbury, follow I-85 North from Salisbury and take Exit 85 (Clark Road). Turn right on Clark Road. The site is approximately a quarter of a mile on the left. The $136 million project will widen nearly 3.5 miles of I-85 from four lanes to eight lanes from north of Long Ferry Road (Exit 81)
in Rowan County to just north of the N.C. 150 interchange in Davidson County. It also includes replacing eight bridges, as well as interchange work. Anyone wanting the latest updates on the project can now find them online. On Friday, the Transportation Department launched a website dedicated to giving citizens one place where they can access a diverse array of information about the project. The address is www.i85yadkinriver.com. “There will be a lot of stuff going on over the next couple of years, and we just wanted the public to have a place they could go to

School board tightens bus driver practices
New snack time staple
Policy revision will prevent those convicted of DUI or DWI from operating a bus B Y S ARAH C AMPBELL firstname.lastname@example.org
The Rowan-Salisbury Board of Education voted 4-3 to revise its Commercial Drivers License class enrollment form Monday, preventing anyone who has been convicted of driving under the influence or driving while intoxicated from operating a school bus. The change, effective Nov. 1, was recommended by the district’s transportation director Judy Burris. “This is another opportunity for us to look at the safety of our students, citizens and staff,” she said. Burris said current state laws prevent individuals from driving a bus if convicted of a DUI/DWI in the last five years. She said revising the policy, aligns the school system with other zero-tolerance districts such as Charlotte-Mecklenburg, Forsyth and Durham. Existing bus drivers will be grandfathered in to the new policy. Burris said as long as they continue to renew their CDL license and don’t receive a DWI/DUI they will be allowed to drive a bus. The change received mixed reactions from the board. Chairman Jim Emerson and board members Bryce Beard and Kay Wright Norman opposed the revision. “I don’t want anyone to jeopardize the safety of anyone,” Norman said. “But I wonder if this is undo punishment.” Emerson agreed, adding if someone is convicted of a DUI or DWI at a young age, the new rule will prevent them from driving a bus no matter how impeccable their record is now. Beard said he feels the state law is already a good compromise. Board member Karen Carpenter said changing the policy will make the legal specifications associated with driving a bus more clear-cut and objective. “I think to err on the side of caution, this is the route we should go,” she said. Gene Miller, the district’s assistant superintendent for operations, said the existing policy also leaves the school system open to scrutiny. He said if a bus driver who has been convicted of a DUI or DWI has an accident, questions will arise. “The first thing the newspaper is going to ask

US 601 closed after tractortrailer overturns, burns A portion of U.S. 601 near the Davie County line was closed for eight hours Monday while employees with Duke Energy repaired a broken power pole after a tractor-trailer overturned, hit the power pole and caught fire around 8:30 a.m. According to the N.C. Highway Patrol, the driver of the truck, Milton Orellana, 48, of Huntersville, suffered minor scrapes and cuts to his face and was treated and released at Rowan Regional Medical Center. The Highway Patrol said Orellana ran off the road into a deep ditch. The truck turned onto its side and hit a power pole. The active power line was wrapped around the truck, and the truck caught fire. Firefighters with Franklin Fire Department got the flames out quickly, and another truck came to haul the trailer away. U.S. 601 was closed from 8:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. Jerusalem Fire Department in Davie County also helped, along with the Department of Transportation. Orellana was cited for a lane violation.

Students in Jessica Kearney’s kindergarten class at Granite Quarry Elementary chow down on a spring mix salad Wednesday. Granite Quarry is one of seven elementary schools in the Rowan-Salisbury School System to receive a Fresh Fruit and Vegetable grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture to provide snacks three days a week.
Elementary students receive fruits and veggies for snacks through federal grant B Y S ARAH C AMPBELL email@example.com
Kindergarten students at Granite Quarry Elementary marveled at the sight of the fresh spring mix salad placed in front of them Wednesday. Their tiny hands inspected the carrots, cucumbers and strawberries that topped the salad before plunging the treats into their months. “It’s yummy,” said 5-yearold Savion after testing out a cucumber. Students at Granite Quarry, Hanford Dole, Koontz, Landis, Overton, North Rowan and Shive elementary schools receive a healthy snack delivered to their classrooms three days a week from the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program. Targeted to elementary schools with the highest free and reduced lunch enrollments, the program is funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. “The kids really look forward to it,” Hanford Dole Assistant Principal Marvin Moore said. “A lot of our kids come from a low socio-economic situation and this is a way we can certify and know that they are getting fresh fruits and vegetables.” The goal of the program is to improve children’s overall diet, creating healthier school environments by providing healthier food choices, expanding the variety of fruits and vegetables children experience and increasing fruit and vegetable consumption. Libby Post, the school system’s child nutrition director, said the district has the highest number of schools in the state participating in the program, giving students expo-

This is the first year the school has been awarded a grant to participate in the program. “It’s been great,” she said. “The kids and teachers are really enjoying their snack.” Lisa Altmann, child nutrition supervisor for Rowan-Salisbury schools, coordinates the program, handling the logistics of about 12,000 snacks per week. Fresh fruit and vegetables offered at the schools range from apples to pomegranates and green beans to asparagus. “I try to order things that
are in season and that kids can’t always get,” she said. “I want to give them exposure to stuff they may not have ever eaten.” Altmann said before ordering snacks, she also studies the breakfast and lunch menus to ensure no overlapping takes place. The program also requires schools to serve at least one vegetable per week. “Kids love fruit, you don’t have to get them to love fruit,” Post said. “But vegetables are more of a challenge, so we try to mix them with something.” Altmann said in order to ensure freshness, the produce is delivered within three days of consumption. When possible, she said she tries to support North Carolina farmers by ordering from vendors within the state. Child nutrition managers at each school prepare the
snacks for the children on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Paul Hart, child nutrition manager at Hanford Dole, said students are anxious to receive their snacks each day. “In the hallways, they always want to know what snacks they’re having,” he said. Hart said as children are acquiring a taste for healthy foods, they are starting to make requests. “Salad is actually one of their favorites,” he said. “Some of them come in and even want salad without dressing.” Post said teachers are encouraged to incorporate nutrition education into their classroom. “There are many wonderful lesson plans available that are tied to the N.C. Standard Course of Study,” she said. Kindergarten teacher Dawn Young said she tries to integrate the snacks into her curriculum at Granite Quarry. “Last week, we talked about how healthy snacks are good for our bodies,” she said. Young said the vibrant spring mix salad gave her the opportunity to encourage her students to identify colors. “It’s a great way to tie in

Fight sends officer to hospital A street fight on East Bank Street early Saturday morning sent two people to the hospital — including a Salisbury Police officer — and also sent three people to jail. Around 4:30 a.m. Saturday, police responded to 209 E. Bank Street and found a mob of people fighting with each other. MITCHELL Police said it was obvious that fighting had been going on, with some people covered in blood and their clothes torn.

18-month-old drowns after wandering from home JACKSONVILLE (AP) — Authorities in Onslow County say an 18-monthold drowned after wandering out of a mobile home and into a ditch filled with water from recent heavy rains. The Onslow County Sheriff’s Office said the incident occurred around 1 p.m. Monday on N.C. 53 on the south side of the county. Sheriff’s Lt. Tommie Thomas said an initial report said the child walked out of the home and fell into a ditch at the edge of the yard. Thomas said authorities think the toddler was washed through a culvert under the highway to the other side of the road. Thomas said an inves-
tigation is continuing. Unofficial reports to the National Weather Service show more than six inches of rain fell on the county during a 24hour period ending Monday afternoon.

Tara Trexler, the district’s chief financial officer, said the Budget and Finance Committee recommends the money be saved to help offset the loss of $7 million in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds the system used to save jobs this year. The expiration of the stimulus funding will create a funding cliff that is expected to put about 176 teaching positions in jeopardy. The new funding could help the school district retain 87 positions next year. “We feel the most logical and prudent thing to do with the jobs bill funding would be to hold off to the 2011-12

Local eighth-graders review PPT’s ‘Romeo and Juliet’
nerals at the church through the years. For the record, the Sloop siblings — in order of oldest to the youngest — were Charlie, Marvin, John, Geneva, Robert, Albert, Crawford, Otho and Sam. They were the children of N.C. and Margaret Sloop, whose 300acre farm grew cotton, corn, oats, wheat and barley. And there was always a garden. “You know, a lot of farmers these days don’t even have a garden,” Otho says in amazement. The farm was divided among all the children in their father’s will. He also had given each of them two acres on which to build their homes. But think about poor Geneva, the only girl born in the middle of all these boys. “Daddy used to say he had eight boys and everyone had a sister,” John says. Of the four surviving brothers, John is the oldest at 95; followed by Robert, 90; Crawford, 86; and Otho, 84. During World War II, Robert served in the Pacific, while John and Crawford were in the European theater. John blames a little bit of his deafness on being in the artillery during the war. “And the weave room (at Cannon Mills) didn’t help, either,” John says. The boys and their sister worked at China Grove and Kannapolis plants for Cannon Mills. As you might expect, they sometimes carpooled to the plants. John and Robert each worked 42 years for Cannon, while Otho and Crawford each logged 35 years with the company. N.C. Sloop had 22 grandchildren. His oldest son, Charlie, moved the homeplace across the road, and his grandson lives there now. “He fixed it up real nice,” Crawford says. As they eat their fish dinners, the brothers describe their father as “a good Christian man” who taught Sunday school at Grace Lutheran until he was 85. He died just short of his 90th birthday. Did the brothers fight much, growing up on the farm? “Dad always said, ‘If there’s any fighting to be done, I’m going to do it,’ ” Otho recalls. So, no, they didn’t fight much. The one concession their father would make to the boys involved baseball. He would allow them to leave the farm on Saturday afternoons to play ball at Patterson School. Most of the brothers played for the Patterson team in the old Yadkin Valley League. “He didn’t let us off very often, but he would let us off to play ball,” Otho said. Sam, who suffered a serious stomach wound in Korea, was the only brother to attend college, graduating from Catawba College in accounting. Though he worked awhile for Cannon Mills as a supervisor, his injury wasn’t suited to hard labor. Plus, the brothers laugh, Sam su-
The actors ... were phenomenal. Juliet was very dramatic with her role. Romeo was very expressive about his feelings towards Juliet. Friar Lawrence was very calm and wanted peace between the two families. The language was hard to understand, but I caught on in the middle of the play. — Alexander Thurston I give it two thumbs up.

The costumes and props were very realistic. They matched the occasion and setting almost perfectly. The sword fights were very interesting and cool to watch. They made you sit on the edge of your seats, literally ... . The actors in the play made the play even more realistic. All of the actors knew their lines perfectly

I liked the fact that the kids stayed focused. They played their roles extremely well. The only thing that wasn’t to my satisfaction was the fact that they spoke really fast like they were in a rush to finish the play, and my opinion is that a play as significant as that one shouldn’t be rushed. — Tralize Haynes
William Shakespeare would be proud of this production. The actors spoke very clearly and loudly. They spoke like they were professional actors and performed just as well. The actors were all stupendous. Juliet was extremely sensitive and very convincing playing that role. You could tell that Romeo was madly in love, and I thought he was perfect for that part. I did not like Tybalt at all. He was cold-hearted and ready to fight but didn’t fail to keep me on the edge of my seat. — Henry Nicholas

pervised too many women and wanted to get out. Sam went on to work for the U.S. Treasury. Albert Sloop suffered an injury, too, but it wasn’t war-related. As a boy he was cutting wood on his daddy’s farm and struck a blow that sliced the toes off one of his feet. The Sloop brothers say their father always kept a pretty sharp ax. The Sloop extended family tries to get together each year around the Fourth of July at Crawford’s house and pond. Usually about 70 people show up for the cookout. “I’ve always considered myself as being lucky to have family,” Crawford says. Brother, does he have family.

play ... . I will definitely be going back to another fivestar performance at the Norvell Theatre.... — Brandon Ralston
On Wednesday, Sept. 22, my school, Knox Middle, went on a field trip. We went to the Norvell Theater. We watched a play called “Romeo and Juliet”... The play was very good. I will never forget it. During the play, the whole stage turned all the way around to a different setting where Juliet stands and talks to Romeo on the balcony. It was so cool; everyone liked it. The actors came out ready to act out a good play. When the play was over, I was out of my seat cheering for them. That’s how good they played their roles. ... This play was the best play I’ve ever seen in my life. — Corey Suber
I was very impressed with how the actresses and actors performed their roles and how they could speak the language so well ... . My first favorite actress was Scarlett Speaks, who played Juliet’s nurse, because I found her very humorous, but very serious when the death of family members came to be. My second favorite actress was Kathleen Bourque who played Mercutio. Although the part of Mercutio is a male part, she was able to handle it easily and it had no negative effect on the play. Alana Koontz was the actress that played the young lover, Juliet. I felt that she was the best person to play this role because she has the beautiful looks and character to play Juliet. I was very happy and shocked with how the Norvell Theatre came out to be. When I walked in I didn’t know if I would be able to see the play, but the seating was built to an angle so that everyone could see the

ROWAN MUTUAL FIRE INSURANCE COMPANY
RALEIGH (AP) — A state judge started hearings Monday over a dispute that could alter the economic prospects of a central North Carolina region or further Alcoa Inc.’s goal of decades of profits from hydroelectric dams. State Administrative Law Judge Joe Webster is presiding over the hearing to decide if a certificate issued last year by the Division of Water Quality was legitimate. The division certified that if conditions it set were followed, Alcoa’s wholly owned subsidiary, Alcoa Power Generating Inc., could operate the dams while protecting nearly 40 miles of the Yadkin River and its reservoirs. If the judge decides the certificate was properly issued, it would remove a key barrier to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission deciding on whether to renew the company’s license for up to 50 more years. A communication breakdown inside the state agency, part of the state Department of Environment and Natural Resources, meant it failed to use its full oversight and led it to wrongly issue the certification, said Thomas Griffin, an attorney for Stanly County officials fighting Alcoa’s relicensing. “DENR failed to do its job,” he said. Gov. Beverly Perdue, her predecessor Mike Easley and Stanly County officials have opposed the company’s relicensing bid. They hope to encourage local job growth by attracting industries with dam-generated electricity and by having greater freedom to draw river water. But Rene Tatro, an attorney representing the Alcoa subsidiary, said opponents were trying to expand the environmental hoops the company has to jump through beyond what the law required. Pittsburgh-based Alcoa is fighting to renew an expired license to operate Yadkin River dams built decades ago to supply electricity to an aluminum smelting plant. The Stanly County plant once employed hundreds but is now shuttered. Alcoa now sells the electricity to high-paying commercial customers. The company estimated in 2006 that the dams generated almost $44 million a year in revenues from hydroelectric power generation. Over 50 years, that could mean revenues of more than $2 billion, an amount that could multiply if demand for clean power booms. The hearing is expected to take several weeks.

KNEE & HIP PAIN • PLANTAR FASCIITIS
FAYETTEVILLE (AP) — Twenty years before Cullen Jones earned an Olympic gold medal in swimming, the New Jersey-native nearly died in the water. “I almost drowned when I was 5 years old, and that’s how I got introduced to swimming,” Jones told about 40 children and their parents Saturday at Fayetteville State University. “My mom had me taking swimming lessons within the week.” Since winning gold along with Michael Phelps in Beijing two years ago, Jones has traveled the country and encouraged black children to take swimming lessons. He was the second black American to win Olympic gold in swimming. Jones, a 26-year-old graduate of N.C. State University, conducted a two-hour lesson in the Capel Arena pool before sharing his message. Many of the children who participated — mostly members of the Fayetteville YMCA Sea Dragons swim club — were white, but not all of them. Kashon Fowler, an 11-yearold boy who joined the team last year, said he was thrilled to take pointers from a gold medalist. His mother, Karenda Fowler, said she enrolled her son in swimming lessons at an early age. “He loves it,” she said after watching Kashon swim a swift 50-meter freestyle. “Knowing how to swim is so important.” Jones said he was shocked when he learned that nearly 70 percent of black children can’t swim. Black boys and girls are three times more likely to drown than white children, according to a 2008 study by USA Swimming. “There are a lot of parents, I’ve found, what they’re doing is because they are afraid of the water, they’re projecting that fear onto their kids,” Jones said. “So the kids don’t know how to swim. But the thing is, you never know when your kids might be around water.” Jones learned the lesson the hard way. As a young boy, his parents took him to a water park, where his father told him not to let go of an inner tube on a tall slide. “When I got to the bottom, I was so small, I flipped upside down, and I was holding onto the inner tube,” Jones said. “When they pulled me, out I wasn’t moving. They had to perform CPR.” The experience propelled him to learn how to swim. The sport soon became his passion, despite his father’s wishes for him to pursue basketball. But after a few years in the pool, Jones started beating all the other boys in his age group. “I grew up in the inner city, so the thought that I could go to college for swimming — I never thought that was possible,” Jones said. “But that’s what happened.” As one of the fastest swimmers on the planet, Jones now holds the distinction of being only the third black man to make a U.S. Olympic swimming team. He said he hopes to see many others join him on that list. Back at the pool Saturday, Jones dove into the water to demonstrate proper form in the 50-meter freestyle. He sprang from the board and seemed to move effortlessly through the water. “Dude, that guy is magic,” one of the boys shouted as the swimmer flipped in the water and sprang off the wall to begin his return. He finished the swim in about 22 seconds, a little shy of the American record he set back in 2008. Kashon looked back to his mother and smiled. He said he wanted to keep getting better so he can “be like Cullen.” That’s good, Jones said, because his story and success in the water are proof that, “yeah, black kids can swim, too.”

Q&A: Sunday hunting laws cover all game Q. For hunters who are allowed to use bows on private land on Sundays this year, what exactly is considered private land? A. Private land is any land not owned or controlled by a unit of government (federal, state or local). Property owned by persons, businesses and corporations is considered private. Public lands include game lands, federal refuges, city and county properties. Q. I am a landowner and I lease my land for hunting. Do I have to allow hunting on Sundays? A. No. Q. What is the allowed manner of take on public lands on Sunday? A. Only falconry is a legal method of take on public lands on Sundays. Q. I hunt on a military base. Is falconry the only legal method of take on Sundays?
A. Not necessarily. Military installations under the exclusive control of the federal government may allow hunting on Sundays with any legal method of take during open seasons. For more information, contact the specific military installation. Q. What game species can I hunt on Sundays? A. All game animals, game birds and nongame animals for which there is an open season may be hunted on Sundays except migratory game birds. Sunday hunting is allowed only during the open seasons. Please see pages 44-56 of the 20102011 Inland Fishing, Hunting and Trapping Regulations Digest for season dates. Q. I live in the western part of the state. Can I hunt on the Sundays between bow-and-arrow season and muzzleloader season? What about
the Sunday between bow-and-arrow season and gun season? A. No. In the counties within the Western Deer Season, Sunday, Oct. 3, Oct. 17 and Nov. 21 are closed to all deer hunting. These Sundays fall between seasons, not within them. Q. Are hunters required to wear hunter orange while hunting with a bow on Sunday during the muzzleloader or gun season? A. Yes. State law says, “Any person hunting deer during a deer firearms season shall wear hunter orange.” The muzzleloader season and the gun season each begin with the first day of the listed season and continue through the last day of the listed season, with all dates being included. Therefore, the muzzleloader and gun seasons are technically open on Sundays, but a hunter’s method of take is limited to archery and falconry on private
lands and falconry on public lands. Because Sundays are still part of the deer firearms season, hunter orange must be worn except for landowners exempted in state law. The blaze orange law does not apply to a landholder, his/her spouse, or children who are hunting on land held by the landholder. Q. What about hunting species other than deer? A. State law says, “Any person hunting game animals other than foxes, bobcats, raccoons and opossum, or hunting upland game birds other than wild turkeys, with the use of firearms, must wear a cap or hat on his head made of hunter orange material or an outer garment of hunter orange visible from all sides.” So, hunters do not need to wear hunter orange on Sundays while hunting the applicable game ani-

Be on lookout for poison ivy as fall activities take place
Local hunters bag some big ones in S.C. Barry McKinney and his son, Kodi, of Granite Quarry both drew tags for South Carolina’s alligator hunt, which opened Sept. 11. After two days of scouting, the McKinneys located their gators. The first one was a 9 foot, 5 inch gator that weighed 350 pounds. It was taken with a bow and arrow in Orangeburg, S.C. The second day, they went to Berkeley County, S.C. Around 5:30 p.m., they found the “big one” sleeping in a shallow water area. The hunters sunk a harpoon in the gator’s back, but he quickly entangled the line with the boat. Kodi was thrown off his feet and Barry was thrown into the swamp. Kodi was able to help his dad back into the boat while the alligator towed the 20-foot boat across the swamp. The hunters fired two arrows from a bow and several rounds from a .357 magnum revolver over the next hour before subduing the 12-foot, 8-inch gator that topped the scales at 1,000 pounds. When the hunters returned to the boat ramp, a crowd had already formed to see the beast that was 10 inches shy of a state record. ••• Another local group had a successful alligator hunt at Lake Marion, S.C. Randy Boger was captain, and crew members are Drew Arey, Jake Dunn, Keith Freeman and Capt. Rick Sutton. It was the fourth gator the group has harvested since starting hunting in South CarSuBMiTTed phoTo olina three years ago. Barry McKinney, left, went gator hunting with his son, Kodi, and came back from South Car••• olina with two nice ones. The bigger one weighed 1,000 pounds. Meanwhile, a Massachusetts woman bagged a 131⁄2-foot, 1,025-pound alligator in Lake Moultrie. Maryellen Mara-Christian, 48, took about two hours to secure the gator before shooting it. A meat processor said the gator had so much fat that only about 40 pounds was usable meat. He will stuff the animal for her to display.

Now that autumn has arrived, it’s time for leaf peeping, apple picking, pumpkin carving and brisk walks. For most Americans, it also means fall yard pickup — and along with it, an increased exposure to poison ivy. According to a report published in Weed Science, research indicates that poison ivy has grown much more aggressive since the 1950s, with leaf size and oil content measurably increased. This is bad news if you are one of the more than 350,000 people who are stricken by poison ivy annually. Poison ivy tops the list of plants to avoid because it contains urushiol, an oily resin that binds to the skin on contact and may result in a hypersensitivity reaction characterized by itching, burning skin eruptions. This rash-causing poison ivy sap is a clear liquid found in the plant’s leaves and the roots, which many people develop an allergy to over time. Urushiol oil remains active for several years, so handling dead leaves or vines can cause a reaction. In addition, oil transferred from the plant to other objects — such as gardening tools, an article of clothing, or even a pet — can cause the rash when it comes in
contact with human skin. If poison ivy is eaten, the mucus lining of the mouth and digestive tract can be damaged. And if poison ivy is burned and the smoke inhaled, a rash may appear in the lining of the lungs, causing extreme pain and respiratory difficulty that may become life-threatening. Poison ivy grows throughout much of North America, and is extremely common in New England, the Mid-Atlantic, and southeastern U.S. It’s typically found in wooded areas as well as exposed rocky areas and open fields, and can be recognized by its group of three leaflets on small stems coming off larger main stems. For decades, parents have taught their children the singsong phrase “leaves of three, let it be” as a way of learning to spot this pretty but toxic plant. Poison ivy also has inconspicuous greenish flowers with five petals. Wear long pants, a shirt with long sleeves, boots and gloves is the best way to minimize exposure. “It’s a particularly strong year for poison ivy, so it’s important for everyone to be aware there are ways to prevent outbreaks, or safely treat rashes and minimize the discomfort and duration should they occur,” says Lou Paradise, president and chief of research of Toprical BioMedics Inc., makers of Topricin Pain Relief and Healing Cream.
Trout streams protected under settlement with Tiger Woods’ golf course developers A legal challenge brought by the Southern Environmental Law Center on behalf of the Western North Carolina Alliance and Trout Unlimited has ended in a settlement agreement that reduces the impact from Tiger Woods’ golf course on headwater trout streams. The challenge brought against a permit issued by the state to the Cliffs at High Carolina led to a reduction by almost half — from 3,132 linear feet of stream impacts in the original design to 1,655 linear feet of impacts in the revised design. The original design of the golf course located in the mountains of western North Carolina included extensive underground piping of trout streams. “North Carolina’s mountain headwaters are so vital to aquatic life and downstream communities that they deserve the full protection of our laws,” said DJ Gerken, senior at-
torney at the Southern Environmental Law Center. “The redesign of the private golf course under this agreement significantly reduces the impact on our stream headwaters and ensures compensatory restoration to North Carolina for any unavoidable impacts to vital mountain streams.” The Southern Environmental Law Center, Western North Carolina Alliance and Trout Unlimited challenged the permit issued for the original golf course design in court because it allowed too much impact to trout streams without sufficient mitigation. “We are pleased with the outcome, and we applaud The Cliffs for their willingness to work hard to address our concerns, said WNCA executive director Julie Mayfield. “They were committed to reaching an agreement and made significant changes to the golf course to do so.” State law says streams cannot be buried for a project if those impacts can be avoided through a better design.

The affair is over, but so is the trust
Dear Amy: I recently turned 31, and as horrible as it sounds, the guy I was seeing broke up with me on my birthday. I still think he is a genuinely nice guy, just obviously not for me. Here’s the problem: “Nice guys” seem really tough to find. Everyone always tells you to pick up a hobby or do what you love to do and you will naturally meet someone. One problem is that I’m really into sports — not really a hot spot for nice guys, but for overblown college jocks.
Dear Amy: I have twins whose birthday is in January. In the past, we were overwhelmed (but grateful!) with toys and presents. Last year, we asked that the kids coming to their party bring something that they made themselves. The attendees were so proud of what they made, and my kids loved the drawings, ceramic plates and especially some homemade muffins. — Anne Dear Anne: This is a fantastic idea. I love it.

Dear Lost: I’m not going to sugarcoat it. There is actually a life-phase when it seems that every awesome guy is married, gay or (according to you) hiding in his basement. Then, in their 40s, these guys seem to surface, sometimes newly single but wanting (of course) younger women (or men). But the answer to the question of where to meet nice guys is: everywhere. I bet there are some guys in your orbit right now who wish you
would see them for what they are — the nice guys you seek. It would help you if you would drop your overblown assumptions about people, be out in the world in whatever way makes you happy and fulfilled, and trust that if you are nice, you will draw nice people to you.

NEW YORK (AP) — Conan O’Brien’s longtime bandleader Max Weinberg isn’t following him to TBS. O’Brien confirmed Monday that Weinberg won’t be joining him on “Conan,” his new latenight program set to WEINBERG debut in November. Weinberg had been O’Brien’s musical sidekick for 17 years, on both “Late Night” and the “Tonight Show.” “Max has been a huge part of my life for the past 17 years and he is an incredible band leader and musician,” O’Brien said in a statement. “I hope he can find time to stop by the show, sit in with the band and pretend to find my monologue funny.” Weinberg, who’s also the drummer for Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band, said his time with O’Brien and crew was “a deeply rewarding experience” and that he does “look forward to dropping by.” Guitarist Jimmy Vivino will take over as bandleader, a “Conan” spokesman said. Vivino is a longtime member of the band, which was previously named “The Max Weinberg 7” and later “Max Weinberg and the Tonight Show Band.” A new name hasn’t yet been announced. O’Brien’s short-lived stint as NBC’s “Tonight Show” show host ended in January.

Dear Wanting: You will begin to trust, respect and love your husband again, but you will have to take this process one painful day at a time. And you will have to take this journey with the very person you may want to avoid — your husband. You may not enjoy policing his e-mail and cell phone. If this causes you pain, then stop. Then you will have to consciously decide to trust him. And then, eventually, you will trust him. Absolute transparency between you two is necessary. That means you should be honest with him about your anger and sadness, and he in turn must be honest with you about his interior needs and feelings. He needs to apologize and ask for your forgiveness, and you should forgive him. A professional counselor will help you sort through his betrayal and your reaction to it.
Most of the “nice guys” seem to spend most of their time in their basements (yuck) or are already married (double yuck), so a relationship with either is out. But where should I go to meet nice guys? Although virtually everyone I know tells me I just need to get out to meet some good guys, when I ask them where I should go the answer is always the same: “Um ... I don’t know.” I’ve even thought about contacting my ex to see where I can meet more guys like him! Maybe your readership can help with this one, or perhaps your own experience and genius can give me the answer. — Lost on Location

He is more like his “old self.” I hate checking up on him, but will I ever stop being suspicious? Will I ever be able to respect him again? I also fear that I am becoming bitter and unable to let go of my anger. And sometimes I’m afraid that I don’t love him as I should — that is what scares me the most.

(Or uncommon wisdom, as the case may be) “Do not let what you can’t do interfere with what you can do.” — John Wooden
• Good start, now be more specific
ll public policy is founded on an underlying philosophy about humanity and the world. Some call it a “worldview,” but whatever it is called, everything government does (or does not do) derives from a philosophical foundation on which it is constructed. While the usual suspects have criticized the Republican’s “A Pledge to America” CAL document, I THOMAS find it a refreshing reminder of the founding philosophy that “brought forth on this continent a new nation,” in Lincoln’s words, 234 years ago. The Republicans might have chosen a word other than “pledge.” They could have selected “promise” (a declaration that something will or will not be done), or “covenant” (an agreement between two or more persons to do or not do something specified), or even “assurance” (a positive declaration intended to give confidence), but they chose “pledge” (a solemn promise or agreement to do or refrain from doing something). Pledge is best, because “solemn” is the most serious of words. Not to nitpick, but something is missing from the document. The pledge speaks of what Republicans will and won’t do should they regain power and how they will cut this and repeal that, but what about us: the unelected who voted them into office? What’s
our role? The pledge speaks of having a “responsible, fact-based conversation with the American people about the scale of the fiscal challenges we face, and the urgent action that is required to deal with them.” OK, but will this be a one-way conversation, or will we be told what is expected of us? If the people are to have a minimal role in the restructuring of government, if this is just an anti-government agenda, the pledge will not work. The first sentence of that conversation should be “we can’t go on like this.” Too many Americans have been riding the gravy train called “entitlement” for too long and it is about to derail. Republicans should make weaning them from dependence on government a patriotic duty and the essence of liberty. Focus on those who have overcome poverty and let them serve as examples of what others can do. Let’s talk about individuals demonstrating more responsibility for their lives and ensuring their own retirement, with Social Security returning to the insurance program it was originally designed to be: a safety net, not a hammock. Get serious about reforming Social Security and Medicare so that younger workers can save and invest their own money and have it with interest and dividends when they need it. Specifics on reforming Social Security and Medicare were left out of the pledge because Republicans know Democrats aren’t serious about
taming these twin monsters. Democrats would rather use these issues to demonize the GOP than offer practical solutions to amend them. Since the New Deal, there has been an unhealthy relationship between government and the people that has harmed both. But like illegal drugs, there would be little supply if the demand were not high. The idea that people are incapable of taking care of themselves and their immediate families would have been foreign to our Founding Fathers. What too many lack is not resources, but motivation. Perhaps no one in modern times articulated the conservative philosophy about government and its rightful place better than Ronald Reagan, who said in a 1964 speech endorsing GOP presidential candidate Barry Goldwater: “This is the issue of this election: Whether we believe in our capacity for self-government or whether we abandon the American Revolution and confess that a little intellectual elite in a far distant capital can plan our lives for us better than we can plan them ourselves.” Philosophy is easier to express than to apply. Republicans, should they win back Congress this year and the White House in 2012, will face enormous opposition from entrenched interests that will test more than the strength of their philosophy. It will test the strength of their character. • • • Cal Thomas writes columns for Tribune Media Services, 2225 Kenmore Ave., Suite 114, Buffalo, N.Y. 14207.

inally, a “new governing agenda” from Republicans. Unveiled in a Virginia hardware store by House speakerwanna-be John Boehner of Ohio, the “Pledge to America” calls for reformulating the “Contract with America” that then-House speaker Newt Gingrich unfurled in 1994 when the GOP took back control of Congress. The agenda calls for extending Bush-era tax cuts supposed to expire Jan. 1, freezing federal spending at 2008 levels, cutting federal oversight of mortgage behemoths Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, limiting the right to sue and repealing the health care overhaul law that just took effect. How that would spur job growth remains unknown. President Obama would veto repeal of his signature accomplishment, health care, and most likely would be upheld. There would be more futile, acrimonious debate on what programs should be cut. The $700 billion that extending tax cuts for Americans earning more than $250,000 would cost would increase the national debt. (Ironically, on the same day Republicans pledged to extend tax cuts for the wealthy, Forbes revealed the 400 richest Americans whose fortunes range from $1 billion to $54 billion earned an average of eight percent more last year.) Before we vote Nov. 2, we need serious debate on exactly what Republicans could and would do to improve the economy and what Democrats could
and would do. We don’t need any more time spent on phony controversies over whether Texas textbooks are antiChristian, where a mosque should be built in Manhattan or whether Hawaii is a state. Boehner argues, “The federal government is too big, it spends too much and it’s out of control.” Aside from the fact that the biggest and most recent federal bureaucracies were created during Republican administrations, his pledge said nothing about how to make the government smaller. Eliminate the enormous Department of Homeland Security? Do away with the Department of Education? The pledge says nothing about the ballooning costs of Social Security or Medicare. The GOP pledge offers no specifics on spending cuts. It says nothing about helping homeowners fight foreclosure or what would happen to businesses depending on improved infrastructure if Obama’s stimulus programs are abruptly shut down. The pledge says nothing about how health care would be improved or made more affordable for Americans if the new law is repealed. Although many Americans think the health care law will increase the deficit, non-partisan experts say it will decrease the deficit by billions of dollars. The blueprint does not say what should happen with the war in Afghanistan. What it does indicate is the amazing amount of input from industry lobbyists that went into the pledge, including subsidies for companies that
move jobs overseas. The pledge also would require congressional approval for regulations that cost more than $100 million to implement. No modern president could sign such a restriction. What the Democrats call “the Party of No” still has not said what positive steps it would take to improve the country, cut the deficit, create jobs or make government smaller. What Republicans have done is slap together a sameold, same-old campaign compendium of popular platform promises of yesteryear. It does not acknowledge the new economic reality. It plays to the anger voters legitimately feel about what’s going on in their lives. But that does not mean Democrats deserve to keep control of Congress. They must be judged on their support of health care overhaul (and should be expected to explain what it really says). They should be judged on whether the stimulus prevented more joblessness. They should be asked to explain why they said they could reduce the unemployment rate, now 9.6 percent, to 8 percent and what went wrong. And Democrats should be able to state specifically what they will do for the economy if they are granted a reprieve and convince voters to give them control of Congress for two more years. • • • Scripps Howard columnist Ann McFeatters has covered the White House and national politics since 1986.
“I don’t ever want this to end” is the way we feel at every one of Dale Higbee’s Carolina Baroque recitals, but never more so than his “Couperin and Paris” at St. John’s Lutheran Church on Sept. 24. The ensemble of harpsichord, violin, recorder and the viola de gamba brought out every exquisite moment of the delicate elegance of Couperin. This clarity was heightened by the ethereal sopranos as they wove around, behind and above the instruments. Little did we realize that Couperin was such a populist. Here we were, down in Salisbury, N.C., and yet we felt we were in Paris at the Court of Versailles, sitting not far from King Louis XIV himself. The concert ended with Couperin’s playful homage to Corelli. The final movement is a joyous fugue in which each instrument voices its thanks. So also do we say thanks to Dale Higbee and his Carolina Baroque. — Ann Listokin, Bettie Morris, Bill Wilson Winston-Salem
Join ‘Ugly Bug Ball’ The Center for the Environment has been blessed with a multitude of volunteers who come together each year and turn our facility on the Catawba College campus into a magical wonderland for our annual Ugly Bug Ball. They deserve our public thanks for the outstanding job they do with the decorations and the plans for music and dancing, good food and a very special silent auction. Many people know that the name, “Ugly Bug Ball,” comes from a Burl Ives’ song: “And a happy time we’ll have there, one and all, at the Ugly Bug Ball.” It’s not a costume party. In fact, casual dress is the standard attire. But it is a good time for a great cause. The center raises all its own funds to support its numerous initiatives, such as our National Youth Environmental Summit, our Campaign for Clean Air, our Catawba Energy Corps internship program, our Green Education Outreach (GEO) team and other exciting programs. The proceeds from this event help fund our educational outreach to the community. This year’s Ugly Bug Ball on this Friday will feature a variety of items in our silent auction, including art work by painters, potters and sculptors from around the region and special opportunities, like a wine tasting party or a three-day weekend in a secluded Watauga County cabin. The members of the art community deserve our special thanks for their extraordinary support of this year’s event. Their submissions, plus a host of other items, like gift certificates and gift baskets, have been generously provided by the center’s friends. Anyone who wants to learn more about this year’s Ugly Bug Ball may call 704637-4727 or visit www.centerfortheenvironment.org. — John Wear Salisbury

WASHINGTON (AP) â€” The federal official running the BP oil spill response proposed Monday having a third party from the oil industry represent polluters to correct perceptions that the company responsible in such disasters is in charge of cleaning up the mess. Incident Commander Thad Allen told a panel appointed by President Barack Obama to investigate the oil spill that BP in no way tried to short-change costs, even though the public and politicians thought the company did. He proposed that someone from the oil industry could represent the polluter in future spills, instead of the company at fault, and eliminate the â€œthe perception that the responsible party is intimately involved in the response,â€? which he said raises questions about who is in charge. In the days and weeks following the April accident, the Obama administration struggled to show it was in control. Oil spill law drafted after the massive Exxon Valdez spill is partly to blame, because it gives the company responsible for the spill a central role. The two-day meeting of the spill commission will also look at other potential missteps by the administration, including the controversial use of chemical dispersants, a moratorium on deep-water drilling and Obamaâ€™s plans to make the Gulfâ€™s environment better than it was before the accident. â€œMuch was done well in responding to this spill, other things not so,â€? said former Sen. Bob Graham, the cochairman of the panel. Five years after Hurricane Katrina he said â€œmany have the same questions whether the government moved quickly enough and was effective enough in its activities, its communication and its partnership with state and local governments.â€?
izens while firefighters were on alert for wildfires, but there was little wind amid the onslaught of dry heat. Downtown hit 113 degrees for a few minutes at about 12:15 p.m., breaking the old alltime record of 112 degrees set on June 26, 1990, said Stuart Seto, a weather specialist at the National Weather Service office in Oxnard. Temperature records for downtown date to 1877. It was not clear whether 113 would remain the dayâ€™s high. Temperatures continued to fluctuate around 112 later in the afternoon, Seto said. The old record high for a Sept. 27 was 106 degrees. As Mother Nature served up California in a roasting pan the lucky few who didnâ€™t have work or school sought relief at the beaches. Hundreds of thousands turned out over the weekend as the heat wave built.
spokesman justified on grounds of â€œself-defense.â€? Pakistan is sensitive about attacks on its territory, but U.S. officials have said they have the right to cross a few miles (kilometers) into Pakistani airspace if they are attacked and in hot pursuit of a target. Pakistan denied Monday such an understanding exists. Its Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a press release the mandate of foreign troops in Afghanistan ends at the Afghan border and said the strikes were a violation of its sovereignty. Pakistan said that unless corrective measures are implemented, it will have to â€œconsider response options.â€? NATO reported it launched two airstrikes on Saturday, and Pakistani intelligence officials reported a third attack on Monday â€” all in tribal regions located opposite an increasingly v la ile e stern region of Afghanistan. It was not clear which militant group was targeted, but the al-Qaidalinked Haqqani faction, which launches frequent attacks on NATO and Afghan forces, is particularly active there.

WASHINGTON (AP) â€” Barely into the new school year, President Barack Obama issued a tough-love message to students and teachers on Monday: Their year in the classroom should be longer, and poorly performing teachers should get out. American students are falling behind their foreign counterparts, especially in math and science, and thatâ€™s got to change, Obama said. Seeking to revive a sense of urgency that education reform may have lost amid the recessionâ€™s focus on the economy, Obama declared that the future of the country is at stake. â€œWhether jobs are created here, high-end jobs that support families and support the future of the American people, is going to depend on whether or not we can do something about these schools,â€? the president said in an interview on NBCâ€™s â€œTodayâ€? show. U.S. schools through high school offer an average of 180 instruction days per year, according to the Education Commission of the States, compared to an average of 197 days for lower grades and 196 days for upper grades in countries with the best student achievement levels, including Japan, South Korea, Germany and New Zealand. â€œThat month makes a difference,â€? the president said. â€œIt means that kids are losing a lot of what they learn during the school year during the summer. Itâ€™s especially severe for poorer kids who may not see as many books in the house during the summers, arenâ€™t getting as many educational opportunities.â€?

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) â€” Pakistan disputed NATOâ€™s claim Monday that its forces have the right of hot pursuit across the Afghan border after coalition helicopters launched airstrikes that killed more than 50 militants who had escaped into Pakistan following an attack on an Afghan security post. Pakistan said it had strongly protested to NATO over the airstrikes, which a coalition

Turnovers hurt Heels
Unbeaten Wolfpack keeping level head BY JOEDY MCCREARY Associated Press
BY JOEDY MCCREARY Associated Press
CHAPEL HILL — North Carolina finally has a win despite playing short-handed due to an ongoing NCAA investigation. Now the Tar Heels can focus on cutting down the mistakes that have plagued them through the first three games. They have committed eight turnovers, seven coming on fumbles, heading into this weekend’s afternoon home game against East Carolina. Opponents have scored 24 points off those mistakes, including converting a fumble into a touchdown on the ensuing drive in each of the first three games. North Carolina has fumbled the ball 10 times overall, recovering three. associated press

Nothing working for Fox
RALEIGH — Natanu Mageo heard screams of joy as he walked to class. R.J. Mattes reads all about it when he checks his Facebook page. The N.C. State campus is buzzing about the Wolfpack’s unexpected 4-0 start. With seemingly every victory for N.C. State comes another milestone. Already off to its best start since 2002, the 23rd-ranked Wolfpack finds itself in the Top 25 for the first time since ’03. Now comes the next challenge: Staying there. And that’s why Mattes says he has paid particular attention to the message being
preached by offensive coordinator Dana Bible. “Don’t drink the KoolAid,” the offensive lineman said Monday. “Everybody’s going to be coming over to you saying, ‘Hey, y’all are great, y’all are good.’ ... We’re not a bad team, but we’re not as good as people are telling us we are.” That humble, middle-ofthe-road approach may wind up suiting the Wolfpack well this week when it plays host to Virginia Tech. The Hokies were the preseason pick to win the ACC but stumbled with early losses to No. 3 Boise State and FCS member James Madison.

BY MIKE CRANSTON Associated Press
CHARLOTTE — When Carolina Panthers coach John Fox began the season in the last year of his contract and with the NFL’s youngest roster, it seemed likely that one of two things would happen. If Fox could harness FOX the inexperience and have a successful season, he’d be one of the NFL’s top coaching free agents in the offseason. If he failed, he’d likely be out the door anyway. So far, nothing Fox tries is working. And on Monday he had trouble clearly explaining an 0-3 start that includes three touchdowns and 12 turnovers. “We are what we are, and that is what I’m trying to change so we’re not that,” Fox said. It was the kind of familiar, odd non-answer that produced smiles and chuckles when things were going well. But few things have for Fox since Carolina’s embarrassing 33-13 meltdown against Arizona in the playoffs two years ago. Despite going 12-4 and winning the NFC South in 2008, Fox was denied a contract extension after the home playoff debacle. Owner Jerry Richardson didn’t budge last offseason, either, when the Panthers slid to 8-8. Richardson then directed his football staff to go younger and slash payroll. Fox’s woes started early. After sticking with Jake Delhomme until he got hurt late last season, Fox had a quick hook for Matt Moore after just two games and six turnovers. It brought the beginning of the Jimmy Clausen era Sunday against Cincinnati. The rookie from Notre Dame completed one pass and posted a 0.0 passer rating in the first half. He was better after halftime but got little help in a 20-7 loss. Fox on Monday said it was “more than likely” Clausen would start next week when things get even more difficult with a visit to Super Bowl champion New Orleans. “Much like earlier things I’ve said, I don’t think our issues have all been the quarterback,” Fox said. The Panthers have numerous other problems, including no reliable receiver after fourtime Pro Bowl pick Steve Smith. The Panthers activated only two other receivers on Sunday, both rookies.

Pulling double duty Storey, Hoskins show versatility BY BRET STRELOW firstname.lastname@example.org
Fourth-seeded Madeline Hoskins played third-seeded Katelyn Storey at a Salisbury tennis practice two weeks ago, and Storey pulled out a 15-13 win in a third-set tiebreaker that decided the challenge match. Hoskins left the tennis complex and headed to golf practice later that afternoon. Storey, also a member of the cross country team, joined
the Hornets for a meet with Central Davidson and East Davidson. Storey finished fourth in the 5K race. “I think I was running on adrenaline,” she said. “After the meet I was pretty tired, but I got through the meet and the practice.” Storey, a sophomore, and Hoskins, a freshman, are both two-sport standouts on highly regarded teams this fall.

Hearing next step for Bowyer BY JENNA FRYER Associated Press
CHARLOTTE — Give Clint Bowyer credit for deftly navigating his way through what was likely the worst week of his NASCAR career. Riding high following his win in the opening round of the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship, Bowyer had the wind knocked out of him 72 hours later when NASCAR ruled the car he drove to victory at New Hampshire was illegal. The decision carried significant sanctions that essentially eliminated Bowyer from title contention, and sent him into Sunday’s race at Dover International Speedway — arguably his weakest of the 10 Chase tracks — as the central figure in a major scandal. Bowyer faced his critics headon, presented a passionate defense of his Richard Childress Racing team, then tried to go about salvaging his season. Only the controversy raged around him and he sputtered in Sunday’s race to a 25th-place finish that dropped him 235 points behind leader Denny Hamlin. His last hope comes Wednesday in an appeal before a threemember panel. Richard Childress Racing will ask for the penalties to be overturned and for Bowyer’s 150 points be restored. No matter how the panel rules, nobody will emerge the victor from a controversy that’s spoiled the start of NASCAR’s 10-race title Chase. Everyone left New Hampshire fairly pleased with the opening race in the Chase, which is NASCAR’s attempt to challenge the NFL for attention. Four-time defending champion Jimmie Johnson had a bad day, the race had an exciting finish and a fresh new winner emerged in Bowyer, who snapped an 88-race winless streak and jumped from 12th to second in the standings. It was a Hollywood-like opening and came at a critical time for NASCAR, which is praying a
competitive Chase will stop the slide in attendance and television ratings and stave off potential offseason changes to the title-deciding format. It all began to unravel just a day later. The Associated Press reported Bowyer’s car from the Sept. 11 race at Richmond came dangerously close to failing inspection, and then came word there was a potential problem with his New Hampshire car. NASCAR announced last Wednesday that the No. 33 Chevrolet failed an inspection back at its research and development center, and levied the championship-crippling penalties to Bowyer’s team. On one hand, the dramatics that have followed the ruling have livened up the sport. Team owner Richard Childress insisted the tow truck that pushed Bowyer to Victory Lane at New Hampshire caused the damage that made the car fail inspection, a theory NASCAR has dismissed. Points leader Denny Hamlin accused the RCR organization of playing loose with the rules for week. RCR driver Kevin Harvick defended the team by intentionally wrecking Hamlin in a practice session at Dover. NASCAR suddenly had a reallife soap opera on its hands, and the entire garage eagerly followed each twist and turn over the three days at Dover. But entertainment aside, the issue surrounding Bowyer’s car has been a public relations disaster for NASCAR. Fans already suspect of NASCAR didn’t understand how Bowyer’s car could have passed a post-race inspection at New Hampshire, only to be ruled illegal three days later. And, if its possible to fail a more detailed inspection back at R&D, then why aren’t all the cars seized after every race? Or, at the very least, all of the Chase cars? If NASCAR really had warned RCR about building cars dangerously close to the templates, as
Hamlin alleges, why didn’t NASCAR publicize that information before the AP reported on Bowyer’s Richmond warning? Just as damning for NASCAR is that two Hendrick Motorsports cars came close to failing inspection after Dover last September, but Johnson and Mark Martin were let off with a warning. Why didn’t the most powerful team in NASCAR receive the same treatment as RCR? It makes no difference that aside from NASCAR’s lack of transparency — an decades-old problem with the privatelyowned organization — there’s a plausible explanation for every conspiracy theory: The at-track inspections are limited and NASCAR does a more thorough examination at the R&D center, NASCAR officials don’t have the resources or see a reason to seize all 12 Chase cars, and the Hendrick cars corrected their issue after last year’s warning, something NASCAR claims RCR did not do after the Richmond race. Still, RCR raises reasonable doubt behind a “why would we be so stupid?” defense. Everyone agrees that, after Richmond, RCR was told its New Hampshire car would be inspected. So Childress and Bowyer have publicly stated only a fool would bring an illegal car to the track knowing NASCAR was going to tear it apart. It’s enough to cloud the entire situation and leave outsiders unsure of whom to trust. Since Wednesday’s appeal is closed to the public, and NASCAR refuses to reveal many details about the proceedings, the decision of the appeals committee won’t matter much in the court of public opinion. To many, Bowyer has been dealt a terrific injustice by big, bad NASCAR. It makes no difference that NASCAR, which desperately needs the attention on the track and on its Chase, had absolutely nothing to gain by picking on Bowyer.
Robinson expected to face Indiana Associated Press
ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Denard Robinson’s injury was more scare than serious. Robinson hurt his left knee in the first quarter against Bowling Green and didn’t return. He said after Saturday’s game he was OK, and two days later he coach concurred. “Denard should be fine,” Rich Rodriguez said Monday. “He’s got a bruise.” The Wolverines (4-0) play their Big Ten opener Saturday at Indiana (3-0). GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Florida receiver Chris Rainey, kicked off the team after being charged with aggravated stalking two weeks ago, agreed to a plea deal on a misdemeanor charge. The State Attorney’s Office and Rainey’s attorney said the player agreed to perform 10 hours of community service or pay $100 to a domestic violence shelter. He also must undergo evaluation and any required counseling for anger management and domestic violence issues. If Rainey completes those requirements and stays out of trouble for six months, the
charge will be dismissed. GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Florida running back Jeff Demps will miss some practice this week with a bruised foot, but he could be back for Saturday’s game at Alabama. TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Alabama defensive end Marcell Dareus is nursing an ankle injury, but coach Nick Saban expects him back in practice by Wednesday. ATHENS, Ga. — Georgia and Oregon have agreed to cancel plans for a two-game series in 2015 and 2016. No reason was given for the cancelations. KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Former Tennessee wide receiver Emmon Love died suddenly Monday. He was 58. Love played for the Volunteers from 1971 to 1973 and caught 46 passes for 667 tards and three touchdowns in his 31-game career. CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — Illinois offensive lineman Hugh Thornton was arrested over the weekend following a fight at a bar and may not play this weekend against No. 2 Ohio State.

GOLF NEWPORT, Wales — A young woman working at the Celtic Manor this week did a double take when she saw Corey Pavin getting into a golf cart. She didn’t realize he was the U.S. captain. What got her attention was what he was holding. “Is that the Ryder Cup trophy?” she said excitedly before holding up her credential to show an image of the gold chalice. Pavin and the American team own the real thing. The question is whether they go home with it. After a night of travel on a charter flight out of Atlanta, the defending champions arrived in Wales for the Ryder Cup matches they will try to win on foreign soil for the first time since 1993. The event starts Friday. U.S. and European players have been banned from using Twitter and other social networking sites during the Ryder Cup.

Deacons seal deal with Irish Associated Press
WINSTON-SALEM — Wake Forest and Notre Dame will play three times in a five-year period beginning in 2011 with a visit from the Fighting Irish. Officials at Wake Forest said Monday the Demon Deacons will host Notre Dame on Nov. 5, 2011, and will visit the Fighting Irish in 2015. That’s in addition to a single meeting that previously had been announced for 2012 in South Bend, Ind. “This is an excellent opportunity for our football program to compete against one of the most-storied football programs in the nation,” Wake Forest director of athletics Ron Wellman said. “Notre Dame has long been recognized for its excellence both academically and athletically and we expect that our fans will thoroughly enjoy having the Fighting Irish come to BB&T Field.”

“Ball security has dramatically got to get better,” coach Butch Davis said Monday. “From a coaching perspective, we have to take that responsibility to make sure we’re doing enough drills to encourage taking care of the football.” The Tar Heels (1-2) are coming off a 17-13 win at Rutgers despite playing without a dozen players due to the NCAA review into agent-related benefits and possible academic violations. It was a welcome reversal of the first two games, when the Tar Heels had the ball late with a chance to win each time only to fall short 30-24. Still, UNC lost two fumbles and T.J. Yates threw his first interception of the year against the Scarlet Knights. The mistakes weren’t quite as costly as they were in the first two games, when North Carolina lost three fumbles against LSU and two more against Georgia Tech only to come up short each time. Davis said the coaches have pushed the scout team and defensive players to focus on trying to strip the ball during practice, which will also force the offensive players to work harder to protect the ball. Sometimes, Davis said, the mistakes have been as simple as carrying the ball with the wrong hand as a tackler makes contact. “We’re doing a really good job of moving the ball up and down the field,” Yates said. “But whenever we get into their territory or whenever we start a drive by fumbling or doing the things we’re doing, it’s absolutely killing the momentum and our movement up front.”
Salisbury’s tennis team is ranked No. 1 in 2A and favored to win a third consecutive state championship. Storey recently placed third overall, one spot behind teammate Emily Shields, as the cross country team claimed its fifth CCC title in the last six seasons. Hoskins is often the No. 4 player on the golf team behind the talented trio of Madison Kennedy, Lily Yatawara and Amber Lyerly. “I was really worried about making sure both the teams and the coaches were OK with me playing two sports so I didn’t cut the other team short,” Hoskins said. “I wanted to be there for both the teams in case they needed me.” Two years ago, Brooke Johnson successfully pulled double duty. She was the No. 3 seed on Salisbury’s championship-winning tennis team and No. 6 overall finisher at the county cross country meet. MYERS Tennis coach Chris Myers said he believes the variety helps his players increase their mental toughness and avoid the threat of burnout. “Especially with our depth, I thought that would be an opportunity for some of the girls to do some other things and help some of the other sports teams,” Myers said. “At the same time, it gives some of our girls that are ranked seven, eight and nine more opportunities because they’ll be our future.” Last week, for instance, the tennis team won its 100th straight conference match. Five players outside Salisbury’s normal top six contributed to a 9-0 victory against Thomasville. Hoskins missed that win to be with the golf team, and she shot a 45 as the Hornets beat Charlotte Catholic by 17 strokes. “A lot of the same attributes a good golfer has, a good tennis player has as well,” Myers said. “I think she benefits from that. She’s playing No. 4 for the golf team, and she’s working to push herself to get better. She brings that same work ethic to the tennis court.” Myers encouraged Storey to give cross country a try after hearing she had been running with her father. Her first-ever 5K race was the PreCounty Meet in late August. Storey finished third behind twin sisters Emily Shields and Katherine Shields with a time of 21 minutes, 26 seconds. As Storey prepared to leave tennis practice and go to the cross country meet following her challenge match with Hoskins, Salisbury baseball coach Scott Maddox jokingly asked if she could play that sport, too. “I started running mainly to help tennis,” Storey said. “It’s helped a lot with my speed and endurance.”

WOLFPACK While it’s too soon to order tickets and book hotel rooms for the ACC championship game in Charlotte, it’s also hard to blame the Wolfpack faithful for getting carried away with the success. After all, N.C. State hasn’t had this many reasons to brag in a while. The Wolfpack (4-0, 1-0) won its first four games for the first time since Philip Rivers was a junior. Last week’s convincing victory at Georgia Tech propelled N.C. State to its first appearance in the national rankings since Rivers’ senior year. It has a winning record in ACC play for the first time since Chuck Amato’s final team started the league schedule 2-0, then dropped the final seven games of 2006. That’s why Mageo said he and teammate Jarvis Williams were serenaded by someone shouting “40” as they walked to class.

great week to prepare for them,” Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer said. Russell Wilson leads the league with an average of 299 total yards, and the dual-threat quarterback is the triggerman of the ACC’s top passing offense, averaging 289 yards through the air. The defense, ranked in the middle of the pack in both yards and points allowed, has forced nine turnovers — only Maryland (10) has forced more — and is the league’s best on third down.
“There’s still room for improvement,” Mageo said, dismissing concerns about overconfidence. “We need to try not to let the spotlight take us away from our approach to the game, and we still have got to work hard. And it starts from practice on the field to the weight room, and off the field to the classroom. We’ve still got to maintain our focus.” Coach Tom O’Brien said he gave his players Saturday night to soak up the Georgia Tech win. He expressed pride in the leadership his captains and upperclassmen have shown to this point. But clearly, this week presents the biggest challenge so far — both tactically, against a Virginia Tech team that is 2-2 but might have the most talent in the ACC, and, mentally, with the hoopla that the Wolfpack players are sure to face all week around campus. “I think that it’s all part of them understanding where they are and how they got to this point, and how they have to continue doing what they’ve done for the past month,” O’Brien said. “This team, we’ll find out if they’re mature enough to handle it or not. The proof won’t come until Saturday afternoon.”

FOX FroM 1B Facing constant double teams, a visibly frustrated Smith didn’t catch a pass until the fourth quarter Sunday and was seen barking at Clausen after the game. The running game isn’t helping, either. DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart, who each rushed for more than 1,100 yards last season, have been held in check all three games. Teams have been loading up the line of scrimmage with eight defenders to stop the run and double-teaming Smith. That’s essentially shut down the offense. “You’ve got to make plays down the field throwing the ball,” Clausen said Monday when asked how you beat that defensive alignment. Deep passes have often turned into interceptions in a dizzying number of turnovers that leaves Carolina last in the NFL in scoring at less than 11 points a game. “The variety last week was more sack-fumbles,” Fox said. “This week they were just fumbles, whether it be in the run game or the center-quarterback exchange. But either
way they’re turnovers that give the short field for the opponent.” While the defense has been adequate despite those circumstances, it’s not pressuring the quarterback after fivetime Pro Bowl pick Julius Peppers was allowed to leave in free agency. Carolina has two sacks. Fox was still trying on Monday. He brought out one of his trusty cliches in a team meeting, and it was repeated by linebacker Dan Connor. “You’ve got to know when to point a finger,” Connor said. “When you’re losing you’ve got to point it at yourself. When you’re winning you point it at other people and you give them praise.” With little job security and a sinking season, there’s potential for players to tune out Fox. But safety Charles Godfrey — one of the lone bright spots with an NFL-high three interceptions — insists Fox still has the attention of the locker room as time runs out for Carolina to salvage its season. “One thing I like about Coach Fox is he’s a man of his word,” Godfrey said. “He believes in us. He’s that way now we’re in this slump. It hasn’t changed.”

That set up first down at the Jaguars 16 with 12 seconds left. The coaches called for maximum protection on the next play, leaving the tight end, fullback and running back in for extra protection. Maclin and DeSean Jackson were Vick’s only targets. Vick dropped back and focused his eyes on Jackson. He felt pressure despite having eight blockers, darted out of the way, reset his feet, looked off Jackson and threw a backdoor pass to Maclin coming across the end zone for a touchdown that gave the Eagles a 14-3 lead. With Vick behind center, the offense has seven TDs in eight trips inside an opponent’s 20-yard line. “If you go back to my days in Atlanta, I thought we always did a good job in the red zone and had a high efficiency and percentage in the red zone and were able to score a lot of points,” Vick said. “My eyes light up when we get down there and I think everybody else on this football team does, too. You have to go out there and put the ball in the end zone. You work so hard to get down there and you don’t want field goals, you want touchdowns.”
PHILADELPHIA — The new Michael Vick makes big plays with his arm instead of his legs. Vick’s evolution as quarterback is summed up perfectly by the way he operated a hurry-up offense in Philadelphia’s 28-3 win at Jacksonville on Sunday. He’s no longer a run-first guy who quickly takes off with the ball if his primary option is covered. Rather, he’s found success in the pocket. Vick has an even bigger challenge coming up when the Eagles (2-1) play host to Washington (1-2) in Donovan McNabb’s return to Philadelphia. But the way Vick is playing now, he might be a better fit for the Eagles than even McNabb, who led them to five NFC championship games in 11 seasons. “I think both of them are tremendous and playing very well right now, so I’m not going to get into comparisons,” Eagles coach Andy Reid said Monday. With 1:37 left in the first half against Jacksonville, the Eagles got the ball at
the Jaguars 47 with no timeouts remaining. The seven-play sequence that followed showed how far Vick has come in his development. Vick withstood a blitz, took a hit and threw the ball away on VICK first down. The old Vick might have taken a sack by trying to escape the rush, or thrown an interception by passing into coverage. Vick got pressured on the next play and was nearly in the grasp when he dumped a short pass for a 2-yard gain. Once again, he didn’t take a sack or attempt a risky pass. On third-and-8, Vick threw a 21-yard strike over the middle to Brent Celek. It was a beautiful pass in traffic that was out of the reach of the defenders and hit Celek in stride, keeping the drive going. After a deep incompletion, Vick fired a 14-yard out to Jeremy Maclin, who failed to get out of bounds. Vick alertly rushed everyone to the line of scrimmage and spiked the ball.

putting the ball at the 9. Three plays later, Chicago walked away with a wild win and the only undefeated record in the NFC. Devin Hester delivered his first touchdown return in three years when he ran back a punt 62 yards in the fourth quarter, giving the Bears a short-lived 14-10 lead. Rodgers threw for 316 yards and a touchdown and also scored on a 3-yard run that gave the Packers a 17-14 lead in the fourth period. Jermichael Finley had nine catches for 115 yards, but the sloppiness simply caught up with the Packers in the end. Cutler completed 16 of 27 passes with a touchdown and interception. Johnny Knox had four catches for 94 yards. Chicago held its longtime rival to 63 yards rushing, but the Bears had only 77 themselves. That turned it into an air game for much of the night.

CHICAGO — Still doubting the Chicago Bears? Jay Cutler Bears 20 Packers 17 threw for 221 yards, Brian Urlacher forced a key fumble and Chicago took advantage of a team-record-tying 17 penalties by the Packers to beat Green Bay 20-17 on Monday night. Robbie Gould won it by making a 19-yard field goal with four seconds left. The Packers’ James Jones lost a fumble on a hit by Urlacher in the final minutes. Then Morgan Burnett was called for pass interference on Earl Bennett, setting up the winning kick. Chicago is 3-0 and alone atop the NFC North. The Packers fell to 2-1. “It’s fun; that is all you can ask for,” Cutler said. “The defense did a great job, we struggled the whole
game, felt like we kind of were killing ourselves.” The Bears kept insisting they were contenders through a sloppy preseason and less-than-inspiring opening win over Detroit. Since then, they turned heads with a win at Dallas last week and stamped themselves as contenders by beating Green Bay — with lots of help from the Packers. The Bears had tied it at 17 on a 25-yard field goal by Gould when Urlacher jarred the ball out of Jones’ hands after the receiver caught a pass from Aaron Rodgers near midfield. Tim Jennings recovered the fumble, giving Chicago the ball on the Packers’ 46 with 2:18 remaining. Soon after, another penalty cost the Packers in a big way. On second down at the 33, Cutler tried to hit Bennett deep along the right sideline and Burnett basically hammered him, wiping out an interception by Nick Collins and

AUSTELL, Ga. — Wide receiver Kenny McKinley was remembered Monday as a model teammate with a body-shaking laugh that could provide much-needed breaks from locker room tension. Family, teammates and coaches were among several hundred people who gathered at a suburban Atlanta church for the 23-year-old’s funeral. McKinley died last week at his home near Broncos headquarters in Denver. Authorities believe he shot himself in the head because he was depressed after his second straight season-ending knee surgery. Linebacker Wesley Woodyard, who’s also from Georgia, was among several Broncos teammates who flew back for the service. He said McKinley came into the locker room and “taught 61 men how to laugh every day.” McKinley had a unique combination of toughness, intelligence and love of the game, South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier said of the player he recruited and coached. “Everything he represented as a person and a player was tremendous,” Spurrier said. “I’m always thinking about how I need to find another Kenny McKinley.” OBIT ALAMEDA, Calif. — George Blanda, who played longer than anyone in pro football history and racked up the most points in a career that spanned four decades, mostly with the Chicago Bears and Oakland Raiders, died Monday after a brief illness. He was 83. Blanda retired a month shy of his 49th birthday before the 1976 season. He held the pro scoring record when he retired, with 2,002 points. He kicked 335 field goals and 943 extra points, running for nine touchdowns and throwing for 236 more. He also threw for 26,920 yards in his career and held the pro football record with 277 interceptions until Brett Favre passed him in 2007. NFL INDIANAPOLIS — Colts president Bill Polian believes the debate over an 18-game NFL season is over, and an expanded schedule will soon become a reality. The competition committee mem-
ber and former league executive twice said he expects the NFL to stretch its regular season by two games. He twice called the decision a “fait accompli” during his weekly radio show Monday night. 49ERS SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Their offense in a funk, the winless 49ers fired coordinator Jimmy Raye. Raye, who is from Fayetteville, was dismissed one day after San Francisco fell to 0-3. The 49ers have scored 38 points, second fewest in the NFL behind Carolina. Mike Johnson will move from quarterbacks coach to offensive coordinator. Offensive assistant Jason Michael will take over as quarterbacks coach. CHIEFS KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Offensive coordinator Charlie Weis had emergency gall bladder surgery Monday, according to a newspaper report. SAINTS METAIRIE, La. — New Orleans coach Sean Payton says he is undecided about whether to bring in kickers this week to compete with the struggling Garrett Hartley in practice. Payton said “you’ve got to be careful to turn around the day after and make decisions that aren’t wellthought out.” The coach says “there were more wide lefts than just the kicker.” BILLS ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Buffalo released quarterback Trent Edwards in a surprise move that came a week after he lost the starting job for a second straight season. RAMS ST. LOUIS — Running back Steven Jackson has a groin strain, and his availability is day to day. The two-time Pro Bowler broke the news on his Twitter feed after undergoing an MRI exam. COWBOYS IRVING, Texas — Dallas Cowboys left guard Kyle Kosier and tight end Jason Witten will get extra time to heal sprained right knees because the team’s bye is this week. BROWNS BEREA, Ohio — Cleveland Browns coach Eric Mangini says linebacker D’Qwell Jackson will undergo surgery to repair a torn right chest muscle. Jackson will be out for the season.
Braves survive in 11th Associated Press
ATLANTA— Omar Infante singled home the winning run with two outs in the 11th inning and Atlanta kept up its push for the NL wildcard spot. Philadelphia’s 8-0 win earlier in the evening eliminated Atlanta in the NL East. T h e Braves had lost five of six, scoring INFANTE a total of nine runs in that span. They barely scored enough to win this time at Turner Field, where they have the best home record in the majors at 5323. Nate McLouth opened the 11th with a walk and moved up on a sacrifice by Alex Gonzalez. Rick Ankiel walked and both runners moved up on a wild pitch. Pinch-hitter Freddie Freeman struck out before Infante hit a 3-2 pitch from Jose Veras (3-3) down the left-field line. Cubs 1, Padres 0 SAN DIEGO — Carlos Zambrano won his seventh straight decision since rejoining Chicago’s rotation, combining with two relievers on a four-hitter, and the Cubs held on to beat San Diego and knock the Padres out of the NL wild-card lead. The Padres, who loaded the bases with two outs in the ninth before pinch-hitter Nick Hundley flied out to left, dropped one-half game behind the Braves. Dodgers 3, Rockies 1 DENVER — Ted Lilly scattered four hits over eight innings and Los Angeles prevented Ubaldo Jimenez from getting his 20th win. Casey Blake went 3 for 4 with two doubles, two RBIs and scored Los Angeles’ other run as the Dodgers put the Rockies on the brink of elimination. Cardinals 6, Pirates 4 ST. LOUIS — Matt Holliday homered and drove in three runs and St. Louis beat Pittsburgh, staying in the NL Central race for at least one more day. A Cardinals loss would have clinched the division for Cincinnati. The Reds were idle, and their magic number remained at one going into Tuesday night’s home game against Houston. Holliday made it 4-all with his 28th homer, a tworun shot in the sixth inning. Albert Pujols had two hits and got his NL-leading 117th RBI with a single in the third. American League CHICAGO — Clay Buchholz outpitched Mark Buehrle and the Boston Red Sox beat the Chicago White Sox 6-1 Monday night, postponing a pair of clinching parties for their AL East rivals. A Red Sox loss would’ve locked up playoff spots for the Tampa Bay Rays and New York Yankees. Instead, Boston took an early lead, pulled away and stayed mathematically in the wildcard race. Orioles 4, Rays 0 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Brian Matusz pitched seven impressive innings and Nick Markakis drove in two runs with a triple and a single, leading Baltimore over AL East-leading Tampa Bay. Mariners 7, Rangers 5 ARLINGTON, Texas — Justin Smoak homered and had three hits, David Pauley pitched six effective innings, and Seattle edged AL West champion Texas. Indians 6, Tigers 3 CLEVELAND — Armando Galarraga went from unhittable to giving up three homers in an 18-pitch span and Cleveland beat Detroit. The Tigers lost slugger Miguel Cabrera to an apparent right ankle injury. Royals 10, Twins 8 KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Jarrod Dyson hit his first major league home run and caught 10 fly balls in center field, helping Kansas City beat Minnesota.

Phillies clinch division Associated Press
WASHINGTON — The Philadelphia Phillies are the NL East champions for the Phillies 8 fourth consecuNationals 0 tive year and, fittingly, Roy Halladay helped seal the deal this time with a two-hitter. Halladay earned his 21st win with his fourth shutout and ninth complete game — all highs in the majors this season — and Jayson Werth drove in four runs, leading the Phillies to a 8-0 victory over the Washington Nationals on Monday night, wrapping up the division with five games left. “That’s the reason you want to come to a team like this. They know how to do it,” Halladay said, a bottle of bubbly clutched in his hands. “It’s the coolest thing I’ve been a part of. It’s just the start, I think.” The Phillies had him, catcher Brian Schneider and bench player Mike Sweeney pop the first champagne corks when they went to the clubhouse, because those are the only members of the team who never have been to the postseason. Halladay (21-10) heads to the playoffs for the first time in his 13th major league season, having played his entire career with the Toronto Blue Jays before being traded to Philadelphia last winter. Normally stoic on the mound, the former Cy Young winner punched his glove with his pitching hand after striking out a swinging Danny Espinosa for the final out. “I wanted him out there,” Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said of letting Halladay go the distance. “I wanted him out there. I felt like he earned it, and he deserved it.” The final out recorded, Halladay instantly broke into a big smile, and the Phillies gathered in the middle of the diamond for hugs and highfives. Thousands of red-clad, towelwaving Phillies fans in the announced crowd of 14,309 gave a standing ovation then began their last in a series of “Let’s go, Phillies” cheers. And Halladay was in the middle of the celebration. His years without a postseason trip were tied for fourth-most among active players; the highest total on that list belongs to Sweeney, whose drought ends in his 16th season. “It was fun, but it’s only going to get funner,” Halladay said. “Honestly, it didn’t matter who finished it as long as we got it done.” The Phillies have the league’s best record are assured of homefield advantage throughout the postseason — the NL won the All-Star Game, remember — although it’s still uncertain who they’ll face at home next week in Game 1 of the division series. “Now we can put this behind us after we celebrate this tonight. We’ve got a long way to go. We’ve got a long road,” said Werth, who hit a homer, double and single. “We know where we want to be.” Completely undisturbed by a light rain that began falling in the third inning, Halladay gave up a single to Wilson Ramos in the third, and another to Adam Dunn in the eighth. But that was it.
The right-hander didn’t walk a batter and struck out six, including one to end each of the first three innings. He faced the minimum 21 batters through seven HALLADAY innings, because Ramos was erased when the next hitter, Alberto Gonzalez, grounded into a 4-6-3 double play. The Phillies went ahead 1-0 on Werth’s 26th homer, a drive off John Lannan (8-8) in the second inning. Lannan, in his final start of the season for the last-place Nationals, gave up four runs and seven hits in 52⁄3 innings. Each hit for Philadelphia led to raucous cheers that must have made it feel like a home game for the Phillies. About 35 minutes before the first pitch, a loud roar greeted Halladay as he walked toward the visitors’ bullpen beyond left field, wearing a red warmup jacket to brace against the chill of temperature in the 70s. The first loud yell of “Let’s go, Phillies!” was heard not much later. And full-throated choruses of that line reverberated through Nationals Park in the sixth inning. Might as well have been Citizens Bank Park — except a lot emptier in the stands. “Kind of embarrassing when everyone in the stadium is clapping against you and you’re at home,” Nationals shortstop Ian Desmond said. “It’s not really where you want to be.” The only moment when Halladay appeared ruffled in the least bit was in the ninth inning — when he was at the plate. Nationals reliever Joe Bisenius threw a pitch that made Halladay duck and tumble in the batter’s box, mussing his jersey with dirt. That prompted an expletive-filled chant from Phillies supporters. Nothing was going to slow the Phillies on Monday, though, and they improved to 46-17 since July 21, when they trailed Atlanta by seven games. Eight days later, they traded for Roy Oswalt, adding him to Halladay and 2008 World Series MVP Cole Hamels for as fearsome a threesome of starting pitchers in the majors. And what a stretch run: Philadelphia is 20-5 in September, its most wins in the season’s final month since compiling 22 in 1983. Looking to become the first team in 66 years to win three consecutive National League championships, the Phillies started this season strong, before injuries and an inconsistent offense took a toll. Six of Philadelphia’s eight regulars spent time on the disabled list, and nearly all saw their production decline. At one point, Chase Utley, Ryan Howard and Shane Victorino were absent during a nearly twoweek stretch in August. Unlike previous years, when they counted on a potent offense, the Phillies relied on outstanding pitching, led by Halladay and Roy Oswalt, in 2010.
Stumbling Yanks still on brink Associated Press
TORONTO — On the brink of the playoffs, A.J. Burnett and the New York YanBlue Jays 7 kees can’t seem Yankees 5 to stop stumbling. Vernon Wells hit a three-run homer, John Buck added a solo shot and the Toronto Blue Jays pounded Burnett, then held on for a 7-5 victory over the Yankees on Monday night. “He got hit hard tonight, there’s no doubt about it,” manager Joe Girardi said of Burnett. Toronto won its fifth straight, assured itself of at least a .500 finish and temporarily denied the Yankees the chance to clinch a playoff berth. Boston’s 6-1 road win over the Chicago White Sox ensured New York would have to wait at least another day. Mark Teixeira hit a three-run homer and Curtis Granderson added a two-run drive for the Yankees, who have lost five of six and are 11-14 in September. “Hopefully it means we’re getting it out of our system,” Teixeira said of New York’s September swoon. “We haven’t played good baseball. That’s starters, that’s offense, defense, it’s everything. Let’s get this out of our system and hopefully we do make the playoffs and have a chance to win a World Series.” Asked whether Burnett (10-15) could be counted on to pitch in the playoffs, Girardi refused to answer. “I’m not going to talk a whole lot about playoffs until we know we’re in,” Girardi said. “You’ve got to get there first and we’re not there.” Burnett said his struggles haven’t dented his appetite for postseason baseball.
“I expect to start in the postseason,” he said. “I just want the ball.” The Blue Jays lead the major leagues with 243 home runs this seaBURNETT son, one shy of the team record set in 2000. Toronto left-hander Marc Rzepczynski (3-4) allowed two runs and four hits in five innings to win consecutive starts for the first time this season. He walked three and matched a career-high with nine strikeouts. “I felt like that was the best I’ve thrown the ball all year,” Rzepczynski said. “I had slider, fastball, was getting ahead and able to expand after that.” Brian Tallet pitched 1 1-3 innings, Josh Roenicke and Jesse Carlson each got one out, Scott Downs worked the eighth and Kevin Gregg closed it out for his 36th save in 41 chances. “That was a big game for us,” Blue Jays manager Cito Gaston said. “No matter what happens the rest of the way out, this team has done a great job this year.” Burnett, who has lost seven of his past 11 starts, allowed seven runs and seven hits in 21⁄3 innings, his second-shortest start of the year. The right-hander, who walked one and struck out one, is 0-3 with a 9.61 ERA in four starts against his former team this season. “You can’t live in the middle of the plate and that’s what I did,” Burnett said. “I fell behind every hitter. “Even the outs I got were hardhit balls,” added Burnett, the first Yankee to lose 15 games since Melido Perez went 13-16 in 1992.

Bobcats open training camp with uncertainty BY MIKE CRANSTON Associated Press
CHARLOTTE — Bobcats forward Boris Diaw didn’t seem to mind that he’s nearly been traded twice. D.J. Augustin insisted he’s not paying attention to talk he could be dealt or supplanted as a starter. And Charlotte coach Larry Brown was lamenting what he already lost over the summer, uncertain if he has the personnel at point guard and center to succeed in the improved Eastern Conference. With a never-satisfied, outspoken coach and a constantly changing roster, the Michael Jordan-owned Bobcats are rarely boring. Monday was no different as the team gathered for media day after a weekend of trade discussions. “If you don’t have control over it, why would you worry about it?” said the laid-back Diaw, involved in the latest trade talk after almost being shipped to Toronto in July. “Just waiting for stuff to be confirmed.” There was little news. General manager Rod Higgins provided scant information after the proposed four-team trade involving Carmelo Anthony hit a snag. Charlotte would get former All-Star point guard Devin Harris from New Jersey in the deal, while Diaw would head to Utah. Augustin was also discussed in early proposals. “I’ve heard my name in trade rumors before. I’m not even going to listen to it,” Augustin said. “I love Charlotte. If anything happens, it’s the NBA, it’s a business.” Brown expressed disappointment the trade talks became public but in-
derrick Brown, left, and Gerald Henderson joke while waiting for interviews. sisted Charlotte wasn’t actively trying to deal Diaw or Augustin. “We’re not calling around. That’s not us,” Brown said. “For Rod not to receive phone calls and try to better our team, I think would be inexcusable. But I don’t think we’ve initiated any of the talk you guys are hearing about.” Not that Brown is thrilled with the 19-man roster he takes to UNC Wilmington for camp. Not after the Bobcats traded center Tyson Chandler to Dallas and lost point guard Raymond Felton to New York in free agency following their first playoff appearance. “Yeah, I died,” Brown said on his reaction when Felton departed. “Everything I value he did.”
Harris would provide an instant replacement, but it’s possible that deal may never happen. That would leave Augustin, who struggled last season, as the likely starter. Newly signed Shaun Livingston, Javaris Crittenton and undrafted rookie Sherron Collins are behind him. Brown said it could mean a change in how the Bobcats, who ranked 28th in scoring and 29th in turnovers last season, will play on offense. Brown envisions using Diaw, Stephen Jackson and Gerald Wallace more as ballhandlers. “We’ve got to figure out how to get Jack and Boris and Gerald and all these other guys where they’re playmakers as well,” Brown said. “It’s going to be an adjustment for
some guys.” Brown has more concerns at center. While Chandler was plagued by injuries in his only season in Charlotte, the Bobcats also didn’t re-sign veteran Theo Ratliff. That leaves Nazr Mohammed, DeSagana Diop and Kwame Brown — who was in a protective boot Monday after a severe ankle sprain last week. “Nazr and DeSagana, the things that I want a center to do, are difficult for them,” said Brown, who wants big men to block shots, be able to defend smaller players on the perimeter and run the floor. “We’ll just have to figure it out.” Mohammed brushed off the comment and vows to get back to the form he was before getting hurt late last season. “This is my 13th year,” Mohammed said. “I am what I am. ... I’m not a shot-blocker.” Wallace, coming off his first AllStar season, and Jackson, who helped elevate Charlotte to the postseason after being acquired from Golden State last season, return as the top scoring threats. Brown just doesn’t know if that’s enough in the East, where Miami constructed a team of superstars and New York, New Jersey and Washington added players. “I think the challenge is much, much greater than last year based on who we had, who we lost and we got and what’s gone on in our league,” Brown said. Brown, who turned 70 this month, is back for his third season after flirting with leaving at the end of last season. Given his history of tinkering and Jordan’s willingness to trade, another roster shake up is possible.
Brown seemed to be hoping for that when asked if the team had regressed following an offseason of moves designed to get under the NBA’s luxury tax payroll figure of $70.3 million. Brown declined to answer the question directly. But he first listed the players they lost: Felton, Chandler, Ratliff, Stephen Graham and Larry Hughes. Brown then listed the layers Charlotte acquired: Livingston, Matt Carroll, Eduardo Najera and Dominic McGuire “I’m hopeful that the guys we mentioned that we added are going to be valuable contributors,” Brown said, “and the young guys that we have coming back have improved a whole hell of a lot.”
NOTES: Jackson disputed a report of a July home invasion involving his wife at their Charlotte home when Jackson wasn’t there. “There’s been no proof of anyone breaking in,” Jackson said. “My attitude is it didn’t happen. I was going through a divorce situation with my wife at the time.” ... Brown said the first example in an NBA video describing the crackdown on demonstrative actions toward officials had Jackson flailing his arms. “It’s going to be an adjustment, but it won’t be a big deal,” Jackson said. ... Livingston said he may practice once a day in camp as he continues his comeback from a severe knee injury. ... Brown said he wished camp was in Chapel Hill so former UNC coach Dean Smith could more easily attend practices. ... The Bobcats invited 6-11 rookie Matt Rogers from Division II Southwest Baptist University to camp.
Wade, James, Bosh show teamwork on media day Associated Press
CORAL GABLES, Fla. — The question involved the road schedule for the Miami Heat’s traveling circus, and as Dwyane Wade leaned forward to answer, he was barely audible in the big room. Wade paused. “I think they cut my mike off,” he said. With midseason timing, two microphones simultaneously slid his way — from LeBron James on his left, and from Chris Bosh on his right. “Thank you,” Wade said. “I appreciate you passing the ball.” See? The Heat’s new power trio shares just fine. Though hardly in need of publicity, the threesome assembled for a 20-minute news conference Monday during Heat media day, hours before the team departed to begin training camp today in the Florida Panhandle. Considering the scope of the event — 275 credentialed media, more than two dozen TV cameras — the mood was subdued. Unlike, say, Super Bowl media day, there were no VIPs in the audience to rival the celebrity of the players.
chris Bosh (left), LeBron James (center) and dwyane Wade share a laugh in an interview. There were no audacious questions or oddball outfits, either. For the most part, the Heat merely seemed ready to go to work. “This team is not built for us to go below the radar,” coach Erik Spoelstra said. “That’s a good thing. The expectations are there. We won’t run away from it.” HORNETS NEW ORLEANS — For
now, it appears that the Hornets made enough front-office, coaching and roster changes to get Chris Paul attention. In time, the club may even regain their star’s affection. “I think what excites me is the unknown, not knowing what to expect,” Paul said. “Anyone who says they know what our team is going to do this season, they’re lying. They’re lying because we’ve
made so many changes and adjustments.” HAWKS ATLANTA — Mike Bibby says he doesn’t want to slow Jeff Teague’s path to more minutes at point guard. It may not be up to him. Teague will compete for the starting job in his second year with the Atlanta Hawks. However, first-year coach Larry Drew says the job be-
longs to Bibby until Teague or another player wins it. Teague was a first-round pick from Wake Forest whose playing time as a rookie was closely monitored by former coach Mike Woodson. While Bibby started 80 games last season, Teague made only three starts and played an average of only 10 minutes per game. “I felt I could play more and do things out there, but Coach Woodson told me last year he wanted that to be a learning experience for me,” Teague said. “He knew I wasn’t going to get as many minutes as I would like. I soaked it all in and just tried to get better each day. Hopefully this year I get my opportunity.” KNICKS GREENBURGH, N.Y. — New York Knicks center Eddy Curry will miss at least four weeks with a strained right hamstring, the third straight year he was sidelined early in training camp. WARRIORS OAKLAND, Calif. — The Golden State Warriors officially introduced Keith Smart as their new coach, hiring him to replace Don Nelson.
Smart had been a Warriors assistant for the past seven years and served as an interim head coach for the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2003, going 9-31. Nelson had the final year of his contract bought out. WIZARDS WASHINGTON — Gilbert Arenas wore a thick beard, a No. 9 jersey and an expression lacking of any joy whatsoever. He looked like someone posing for a mug shot instead of a publicity photo as the Washington Wizards crew took picture after picture, the photographers trying in vain to get him to crack even the slightest smile. It was the eve of training camp, and the carefree personality formerly known as Agent Zero was nowhere to be found. “The only place I want to smile is on the court,” Arenas said. “That’s where my job is, that’s where my love is. That’s the only time I need to smile now.” Arenas spoke publicly Monday for the first time since the day he was sentenced on a felony gun charge in March, a silence that ended only because it’s mandatory to take part in the team’s media day.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Some kind of endeavor in which you’re involved has benefits that have yet to be exploited. Study things carefully, because what you’re missing could be quite meaningful. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Listen to your inner voice, because it could provide you with some constructive ideas as to how to better your financial affairs. Don’t dismiss your intuitive perceptions lightly. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Not everything can be accomplished single-handedly, so don’t be too proud to accept the assistance of another. You have several associates who will be happy to help. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Conditions are extremely conducive for advancing your ambitions. All you need are a couple of ingredients to get you rolling, such as ambition, motivation and singleness of purpose. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Close involvements with friends can produce some peripheral benefits for both you and them. Get the ball rolling by checking out what you can do for them. They’ll follow suit. v (Feb. 20-March 20) — You are likely to find out that some kind of change you’re been strongly resisting could actually be fun and good for you. Don’t become an impediment to your own success. Aries (March 21-April 19) — Be attentive and listen to all that is being said by everybody, not just the smart folks. You never know out of whose mouth those bits of wisdom could spew. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Strong possibilities to firm up your material position could issue from a source that presently looks to be only a nominal opportunity; keep your peepers on it, it could grow considerably. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Don’t despair if your social life has been limper than canned ravioli lately, because the situation could suddenly improve when your popularity starts trending upward. You’ll see the first signs today. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Don’t lose faith over a couple of important matters that haven’t been going too smoothly lately. You’re likely to get several opportunities to turn things around to your satisfaction. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — This is an excellent day to check out that new social group or organization that has captured your attention. Contacts you make through either one of them will be very productive and beneficial. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — You’re at the ingress of a new cycle that that could considerably help you solidify your material interests. Old obligations will be met with a bit of surplus left over.

Pleasing everyone is impossible Dear Dr. Gott: In regards to the person who was irritated because he or she thinks your answers are too long, thus he or she did not enjoy your column as much as when the answers were shorter, I think if this person wants only short answers, he or she should get a medical encyclopedia. I hope you keep your answers just as they are. This person obviously does not have a serious health issue right now or has not had a health concern, whereas many letter DR. PETER writers have suffered for GOTT months, if not years, and are still suffering after seeing many doctors and specialists without relief. Maybe if more doctors would give an in-depth explanation to their patients as you do, the world would be better off. I enjoy your column very much, so please keep it as is. Thank you. Dear Reader: And thank you. It’s difficult at any time, but
particularly in today’s society, to satisfy people. We all think differently, finding some things acceptable and others totally unacceptable. We are less tolerant, more opinionated and want things done our way, which, of course, is the best way. What a fickle society we’ve become. If I have pleased you with what I am doing, it’s all worth it. Thank you again for making my day. Dear Dr. Gott: I have had recurring nausea for several years that occurs only in warm weather over 75 F. It starts in April and continues until September. I’ve been to six doctors, including a cardiologist, neurologist, physiologist, ear-noseand-throat specialist and the VA. I’ve had all their tests but no diagnosis. Dear Reader: It may be a surprise to you to discover that heat-induced nausea is rather common. These illnesses occur when a person’s body-temperature control system overloads. We cool our bodies by sweating. With some of us, sweating is inadequate and body temperatures rise. This may occur because of
high humidity that prevents sweat from evaporating as quickly as it ordinarily would, or we may have a fever, be dehydrated, be overweight, have poor circulation, be on specific medications, or use alcohol to excess. When any of these things occur, nausea may result. There may be steps you can take to prevent this. Hydrate by drinking additional fluids, whatever your level of activity. Consider sports drinks to keep your mineral and electrolyte levels up. By all means, avoid as much sun exposure as you can. Choose lightweight fabrics that will allow your skin to breathe better. When possible, avoid warm outdoor temperatures and keep your home air-conditioned. It’s obvious we cannot walk around in a bubble; however, these are simple suggestions that might get you through days with higherthan-acceptable temperatures for you. When you feel a bout of nausea coming on, consider eating olives, crackers or a lemon. In fact, keep ice water in the refrigerator and rub the edge of the glass with a lemon
wedge. These food items may settle your stomach acid and help with the nausea. Then you might consider light exercise, yoga or tai chi for additional support. To provide related information, I am sending you a copy of my Health Report “More Compelling Home Remedies.” Other readers who would like a copy should send a self-addressed stamped No. 10 envelope and a $2 check or money order made payable to Newsletter and sent to Newsletter, P.O. Box 167, Wickliffe, OH 44092-0167. Be sure to mention the title or print an order form off my website at www.AskDrGottMD.com. Dr. Peter H. Gott is a retired physician and the author of several books, including “Live Longer, Live Better,” “Dr. Gott’s No Flour, No Sugar Diet” and “Dr. Gott’s No Flour, No Sugar Cookbook,” which are available at most bookstores or online.

NYC forced to move oft-stolen Joey Ramone sign NEW YORK (AP) — Officials say a metal homage to the late punk legend Joey Ramone may be New York City’s most-stolen street sign. The Department of Transportation recently had the “Joey Ramone Place” sign re-
installed in lower Manhattan for the fourth time since 2003. This time, it was raised 8 eight feet to curb temptation. The New York Post says that puts it about 20 feet above street level. The group’s longtime
drummer, Marky Ramone, thinks Joey would appreciate the most-stolen distinction. But he adds: “Now you have to be an NBA player to see it.” The sign is at the corner of Bowery and East Second Street. The department says
Broadway, Wall Street and Love Lane signs also have attracted sign thieves. The sign’s move was first reported on the blog EV Grieve. Information from: New York Post, http://www.nypost.com
Actress Brigitte Bardot is 76. Actress-comedian Janeane Garofalo is 46. Actress Mira Sorvino is 43. TV personality Moon Zappa is 43. Actress Naomi Watts is 42. Country singer Mandy Barnett is 35. Rapper Young Jeezy is 33. TV personality Bam Margera (“Jackass”) is 31. Actress Hilary Duff is 23.
Gain communication to establish a suit BY PHILLIP ALDER United Feature Syndicate
In yesterday’s deal declarer had to open up the communication lines between his hand and dummy prior to crossruffing. This deal also requires careful communication between the two hands, but for a different reason. You are in six spades. West leads the heart jack to dummy’s ace. What would you do? Your three-spade rebid showed a good suit with extra values. When North indicated some slam interest (he would have bid three notrump or four spades with game-only values), you used Blackwood before settling into six spades. You start with 11 top tricks: six spades, two hearts, two diamonds and one club. You could hope that the clubs are splitting 2-2 or that West has a singleton queen or king. (The chances are 53 percent.) However, you should leave that on the back burner, hoping first to establish a third diamond trick. This needs diamonds to be 4-3 (62 percent) and, since you will have to ruff two low diamonds in your hand, three dummy entries: two for the ruffs and one to return to the dummy to cash the diamond eight. What are those entries? The club ace and spade 10 are obvious. The other must be the spade three. Play a diamond to your king, lead a spade to dummy’s 10, cash the diamond ace (so that you can find out if dia-
monds are 4-3), ruff a diamond, trump your heart king(!), ruff another diamond, draw trumps, cross to the club ace, and cash the diamond eight. Brilliant!
