MEMORIES OF THE BIG WAR Catawba student charged Police say 21-year-old had bomb-making material A Catawba College student faces two felony charges after Salisbury Police reported they found him with explosive materials on Catawba’s campus. According to the police report, John Thomas Oplanick, 21, of Purcell Residence Hall, Apartment 101, was charged with two counts of having explosives on educational property. He was released to the custody of his sister. The report said Oplanick possessed a homemade bomb, a “powerful explosive,” made in a bottle with Works cleaner and aluminum foil. Oplanick is banned from the Catawba College campus until he gets clearance. Any further disciplinary action is unknown. Because Oplanick was released into custody of a relative, his arrest photo was not available.


Buck Curlee sits at his kitchen table with a World War II-issued pocket watch and a pistol he took off the body of a dead German.

Buck Curlee among local veterans who will be on the Flight of Honor uck Curlee’s kitchen table can’t hold all of his war memories. A case with one of his two Purple Hearts is open. A small rock lies inside. It’s a stone he picked up on the coast of France during the war and carried in his pocket for close to 30 years. MARK A silver pocket watch WINEKA on the table is what the Army issued to him when he became a non-commissioned officer in 1942. After the war, Curlee gave it to his father. He brought it back here the morning his father died. Buck takes a pistol out of its holster to let you examine the craftsmanship and feel the weight. The shoulder gun belonged to a German lieutenant colonel who Curlee came across in the Ardennes. His platoon had taken a German bunker, and the offi-


cer was lying dead on top of a desk. Curlee would secretly carry the gun for the next six months, figuring it might come in handy if he got into a life-or-death scrape. From the fall of 1944 and into the cold winter of 1945, Curlee’s 395th Regiment chased the Germans into Belgium, defended border towns, found itself surrounded during the Battle of the Bulge, broke through the Siegfried Line and mounted offensives across the Roer and Rhine rivers to capture German territories. Asked how his L Company fared during Allied advances crucial in ending the war, Curlee answers only that “We were lucky and unlucky.” His own luck ran out when he was wounded in the right knee during a day his platoon was taking a German quarry. A bullet shattered some cartilage, but Curlee shunned doctors’ recommendations in Paris and London to have surgery and opted instead for a simple 3-inch wrap around the knee for the several

years. The knee still gives him some trouble, but he learned to live with it.


••• Curlee says he was ornery as a kid — he had to be in a family of six brothers and two sisters. His daddy proclaimed one day the young boy would henceforth be called “Buck,” the same name as the family mule. “That’s just the way he acts,” Buck’s father explained. Curlee’s given name is really James Franklin Curlee. “Nobody in this town knows me by that name,” he says. After 88 years, a lot of people know Buck Curlee. He was part of the mill and railroad families who built North Main Baptist Church. Curlee also worked for places such as Rowan Creamery, A.C. Menius’ Packard dealership and Rouzer Motor Parts before running his own business, Motor Service and Parts.

Downtown may get new club

A case holds one of Buck Curlee’s Purple Hearts and a rock from the shores of France that he kept in a pocket for years. After selling his business, he worked as a night watchman at Cartex Mill, then parttime for Ralph Peeler at Atlantic Oil. “Nobody loves their town or church any more than I do mine,” Buck says. “... I’m proud of my service, but I’m more proud of Salisbury and the people I’ve lived with all my life.”


In the wake of the Club Liqwid debacle and two shooting deaths after an argument at another downtown bar, the Salisbury Planning Board on Tuesday will hear a request to open a new nightclub on East Innes Street. Karen Littleton has requested a special use permit to open Nashville Nights, a country western nightclub, at 127 E. Innes St. The building most recently housed the Robar used book store. At 4 p.m. in City Hall, the Planning Board will hold an evidentiary hearing, including testimony from proponents, opponents and city staff. In her application, Littleton said she will comply with all ABC and ALE requirements, provide security and allow no alcohol outside the building. Workers were painting interior walls last week. Club Liqwid, which occupied the South Main Street site formerly known as Club Zidis, closed in July after police were repeatedly called to the bar for altercations involving unruly crowds, fights, drunken behavior, destruction of property and even gunshots. In June, two men were shot to death on East Innes Street two hours after a dispute over a pool table in Benchwarmers, a Fisher Street bar, according to police. The Planning Board also will hear pro-

WASHINGTON (AP) — As if voters don’t have enough to be angry about this election year, the government is expected to announce this week that more than 58 million Social Security recipients will go through another year without an increase in their monthly benefits. It would mark only the second year without an increase since automatic adjustments for inflation were adopted in 1975.

CHAPEL HILL (AP) — The University of North Carolina Health Care System says keeping its only heart surgeon is worth the cost of doubling his salary. The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Sunday that the hospital will pay Brett Sheridan $600,000 a year — an increase of $335,000 and more than any other heart surgeon has earned at UNC’s hospital. Hospital chief executive Bill Roper says it would have been more costly to the hospital to lose its sole adult-heart surgeon. That would have meant UNC Hospitals would have been temporarily unable to do heart transplants, valve replacements and other surgical procedures. Roper says Sheridan’s salary comes from clinical revenue, not taxpayer dollars. An American Medical Group Association survey showed that the average salary for a cardiac or thoracic surgeon is $533,084.

MONDAY October 11, 2010


Granite Quarry-Faith police chief glad to be back to community policing Mark Cook says he’s missed the tight-knit atmosphere BY SARAH CAMPBELL


An emergency training drill was conducted on the closed Wil-cox Bridge on U.S. 29 Saturday morning. The drill involved a bus loaded with students, a handicap van and two cars. All the Rowan County emergency departments participated. In this case, actors included a pregnant woman, in the center, who was removed from the bus.

Emergency exercise largest of its kind in Rowan history More than 15 agencies participated BY SHELLEY SMITH

If you happened to be driving through Spencer on U.S. 29 Saturday morning, near the Wil-cox Bridge, the overturned bus and school children lying on the side of the road bleeding, the RITA van on its side, and two other wrecked cars were not a figment of your imagination, but In this scene, emergency workers extract dummies and actors who are trapped in the bus. an emergency exercise by more than 15 agencies. The exercise was one of the largest of its kind in the history of Rowan County emergency agencies and involved agencies from Charlotte, Rowan, Davidson and Cabarrus counties. Lennie Cooper, chief of Rowan County EMS, and Eddie Cress, assistant chief of Rowan County Rescue, were the lead planners of the exercise, both on the Exercise Design Subcommittee of the Local Emergency Planning Committee. “So many times these exercises create themselves as far as scenarios and what’s available,” Cooper said of the planning, adding that the schools and Rowan Transit each had an interest to be involved in an exercise. “And we knew we needed to test mass casualties,” he said. The scenario — a transportation accident with mass casualties — follows. Emergency workers gather materials to use in treating patients and preparing them for transA Rowan-Salisbury port to a medical facility. Schools bus was returning to the county from an event in Davidson County. At the same time, Rowan Transit was transporting senior citizens from Salisbury to Lexington. As the RITA van was traveling north on U.S. 29, the construction going on confused the driver, and the driver traveled in the wrong lane of traffic, hitting the bus head-on. Two additional passenger cars were also involved — one struck the back of the school bus, and the second vehicle, also traveling in the same lane as the bus, went off the road and overturned. The school bus also caught fire. There were 33 patients and five fatalities on the scene. Patients’ injuries varied from critical — needing to Members of the emergency medical team prepare a patient to be loaded into the ambulance. be airlifted — to minor.


GRANITE QUARRY — After a short stint with the Iredell County Sheriff’s Department, Mark Cook is happy to be back to community policing. Cook, 38, took over as the police chief of the Granite Quarry-Faith Joint Police Authority on Sept. 7, replacing longtime Police Chief Clyde Adams Jr., who served the town for almost 20 years. Spending nearly 15 years at the Cornelius Police Department, Cook started out as a patrol officer in 1994. He later served as a patrol division sergeant, patrol lieutenant and division commander before leaving to work in Iredell County in February 2009. Cook said he missed the tightknit atmosphere sArAh CAmpbell/SALISBURY POST of community Mark Cook took over as the policing. police chief of the Granite “I can go to Quarry-Faith Joint Police Auwork today and thority Sept. 7, replacing longfeel like I’m going time chief Clyde Adams Jr. to work with my family,” he said. Granite Quarry Mayor Mary Ponds said the foundation Adams built is strong and she expects Cook to add to it. “He can move us to higher heights and greater levels of expertise,” she said, “with advancements in community service and in knowledge so that our force can be the best.” • • • During his first month on the job, Cook defined specific goals for the police authority, which has six full-time and 12 part-time officers. He doesn’t anticipate making any drastic changes, but does want to streamline operations. “The things I want to change have nothing to do with what has been done in the past,” he said. “There is a lot of good infrastructure already in place.” Cook said updating the policies and procedures will provide clearer accountability standards that will align the department to apply for accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA). “(Accreditation) makes the agency accountable to itself and the town and makes it run smoother and more transparently,” he said. • • • Cook said right now the agency is focusing on putting a halt to the steady stream of larcenies in the area. He said in many cases people are breaking and entering into homes and only taking jewelry. “It’s a pretty widespread problem right now,” he said. Cook said working in two small towns can have advantages when it comes to preventing crimes. “People generally know who doesn’t belong,” he said. “If they see something suspicious, they can call us and we’ll come check it out. “ The agency has ramped up its patrol of residential areas during daytime hours, when many of the larcenies occur. “A lot of these crimes are taking place while people are away at work,” Cook said. • • • Cook said another one of his short-term goals is adding more officers to the staff so that at least two are on duty 24/7. “We’re going to focus on applying for grants and looking into different funding sources,” he said. “Right now, there’s not a lot of money available so grants will be a big help.” He would also like to hire another officer so that work can be delegated from the agency’s sergeants. “I’d like to have them spend more time out on patrol, following up and less time doing paperwork,” Cook said. Finding ways to reduce cost is another goal Cook hopes to accomplish within the next year. “I want to look at different ways to restructure that will allow us to achieve our goals while spending efficiently.” Cook is currently reviewing the agency’s training procedures and looking for ways to trim those costs. “A lot of state-mandated training can be done online,” he said. Cook said he also wants officers to focus on training that is specifically tailored to community policing and their future career goals. • • • As Cook continues to study the agency’s policies and procedures, he’s been out and about talking to local business owners and residents. He plans to host a community planning session to gain insight about the expectations and perceptions of the agency. “I’m really excited to be here. Both townships are really great,” he said. “If people have questions, comments or concerns, I want to hear them.” Contact Sarah Campbell at 704-797-7683.

Red Hot Mamas make good showing in Blue Ridge Relay ack in the spring, the idea arose for a great adventure. Why not get a group together and run 200 miles on a relay through the mountains? And run those mountains maybe with an all-girl team. After a few initial meetings, the plans had slowed to a crawl. The group had lost DAVID several of its FREEZE original members, and it needed a leader. Meredith Abramson decided that 12 women would run the Blue Ridge Relay, and she would help find enough women. She also decided that the group needed a name, and soon was born the adventure of the “Red Hot Mamas.” Abramson wanted to enlist 12 moms and find a group that would be like-minded and supportive, pulling each other along. She knew that they had to co-exist in very tight quarters and during some trying situations. The “Mamas” registered in June and started training in July. There would be two vans leap-frogging across the Blue Ridge. Each van would take a turn, dispensing all six runners for their planned runs, then being “off” for several hours. The women divided out the segments; all 12 would run three segments through the mountains. They trained together by running up Morrow Mountain. Finally the team was set just a few short weeks before the Sept. 17 start at Mount Rogers in the Grayson Highlands of Virginia. Van 1 would have Patricia Hedenskog, Ashlinn Trexler, Audra Perry, Sara Phillips, Amy Welch and Tricia Proper. Van 2 would have Kim Cooke, Meredith Abramson, Emily Brinskelle, Jen Drabik, Allie Wagner and Kelly Lowman. Most of the girls knew each other and all were moms except Wagner. Abramson talked her friends Cooke and Drabik into joining the locals. Drabik came all the way from Cleveland, Ohio, to join the fun. Cooke is from Waxhaw. Ages ranged from 19 for Wagner, through the 20s and 30s. Team mom was Suzanne Burgess. Hedenskog started the re-

The slower teams started first, with organizers hoping that many of the teams would finish together. Van 2 missed the start because they made a wrong turn, but by the time for the second leg, Cooke and Drabik and had been introduced to the group. The relay was on, and all the planning was paying rewards. The women had all picked legs based on experience. Some were listed as easy, some hilly, and some very hard. Since the relay continued during the night, opportunities for unusual happenings could be expected. At about 4:30 a.m., the girls in Van 2 thought they saw red lights on a UFO, but it turned out to be a fire truck signaling a transition area ahead. Girls in Van 1 got diarrhea and it was blamed on too many power bars, energy gels and drinks. Van 2 had no such problems, but hastily had to convince the other teams that they were still regular. Kim Cooke had a tough uphill leg, and Abramson was next in line. Being a “Red Hot Mama,” she decided to wear body glitter and body spray, and thought she had plenty of time to get ready. Earlier than expected, Cooke arrived and Abramson had to jump out of the van

and take off running. Abramson also met her neighbor, Gene Faller, for the first time. He was running for the Food Lion team. Other humorous happenings included Hedenskog taking the last pancake at a rest stop, leaving none for anyone else in her van. She did take time to chew out the organizers, reminding them that the “Mamas” had paid their way to do this just like everyone else. She didn’t mind eating that pancake, though. Hedenskog had to deal with Welch’s snoring, so she probably needed the pancake. Once, while delirious and operating on very little sleep, the girls were told that there was space for sleeping available in a fire department. They pulled the van in and tried to sleep. Too late, they

realized that the firemen actually had beds available for them to sleep in. Perry tangled with a local dog, and Proper tumbled off the side of a road after being clipped by a car. Wagner ran the last leg and was accompanied by the whole team as she finished in Asheville around midday Saturday. Temperatures ranged from the upper 40s to the 80s during the relay. The team ran more than 200 miles in 30 hours and 55 minutes and covered the distance at an 8 minute and 55 second pace per mile. The “Mamas” placed third in the all-female division and narrowly missed beating the co-ed Food Lion team. “We overcame our biggest fear of running alone in the dark by supporting each other,” Hedenskog said. “I didn’t sleep for 41 hours, but it was an awesome experience. Twelve women completely depended on each other!” Eight of the “Mamas” have already committed to doing it again next year. Meredith Abramson says she thinks she can get more of them than that. I wouldn’t count her out. More information on the Blue Ridge Relay can be found at • • • On another note, I am starting an online blog with Just go to and click on blogs.

Baptist Air Care; MedCenter Air from CMC; Rowan County Communications; Rowan County Fire Division; Rowan County Emergency Management; Rowan County Sheriff’s Office; N.C. Highway Patrol; Spencer Police Department; Rowan-Salisbury Schools; Rowan Transit; Crawford’s Wrecker Service; N.C. DOT; and Rowan Regional Medical Center. Frank Thomason, Rowan County Emergency Services director, said the vehicles from Rowan-Salisbury Schools and Rowan Transit were important because they “allowed us to really simulate real-life situations,” he said, with firefighters even cutting through the school bus to get

to get everyone involved and see how it works.” Barrier said the main thing he kept thinking about during the exercise was how the general public has no idea how much training goes into such events. “It’s just amazing to me how these people can get all their hours in and do all the stuff that they do,” he said. “Unfortunately they don’t get paid much to do it. “I just wish the general public realized how much time and effort and training these emergency personnel have. It’s a privilege to me to be able to work with these folks.” Cooper said that in two to three weeks, the five “judges” and heads from the different agencies will get together and talk in depth about the exercise and develop an action report and improvement plan. “If there are no problems, then they’ve missed something,” Thomason said of the exercise. “We don’t plan to fail. We plan it as realistic as possible with the outcome being to show us where we need to improve.” Contact Shelley Smith at 704-797-4246.

DRILL FRoM 3A Playing the roles of the children on the bus were students from North Rowan High School and local sheriff’s and fire explorers — covered in fake blood and theatrical makeup. Other roles included parents of the children. One woman screamed at firefighters and EMS workers as they walked by the children scattered along the shoulder of the road. “That woman was an Academy Award winner,” Cooper said. “If we didn’t have people acting like it was the real deal, then they wouldn’t have an opportunity to practice handling those people before the real event took place.” The first agency on the scene was a truck from Miller Ferry — and no agency knew what the exercise would entail until they arrived on scene. “The actual on-scene coordination and cooperation was probably some of the best I’ve seen for an exercise in quite some time,” Cooper

to the children. N.C. DOT also helped by providing signs reading “Emergency Drill Ahead.” Thomason said that any time there is an exercise such as Saturday’s, there are safety concerns not only for the responders and those involved, but for the citizens using the roads. Rowan County EMS Medical Director Ronnie Barrier was an observer during the exercise and will give feedback later. “In a real situation, I would have probably been the one that was triaging patients and deciding who was hurt badly enough to go first and who could wait,” he said. “Fortunately we don’t see many things like that ... but we prepare for those sorts of things — worst-case scenarios.” Barrier said he thought the exercise worked out pretty well, but noted it was an educational experience, and responders and agencies will learn from their mistakes. “It’s nice having these things just to figure out how you’re going to do things and work with different agencies,” he said. “A big exercise like that gives us the chance

Chili cook-off heats up Kannapolis Money going to families of burned children BY HUGH FISHER

free ground beef. They soaked dried beans instead of using canned. And their chili’s kick came from one, and only one, habanero pepper — one of the world’s hottest, some 50 times hotter than a jalapeño. “We kept looking at the bag of habaneros, and looking at the pot,” Kessler said. “But we decided against it.” “We didn’t want to melt anyone’s face off before they had a chance to taste it,” Allen said. Their decision paid off. Allen and Kessler’s chili won the day. The winning duo received a cash prize and restaurant coupons — so they could eat something other than chili for a while. Runners-up got gift certificates to restaurants as a thank-you. The day’s real winner was the N.C. Firefighters’ Burned Children Fund. Proceeds go to help their efforts to prevent fires and provide treatment for burn victims. President Debbie Phillips said that since 1987 the charity has helped families in need. “We try to do an event every year,” Phillips said. Funds raised from aluminum can drives, chili cookoffs and more go to help families with the expenses related to taking their children to burn treatments. The charity also supports Camp Celebrate, a chance for burned children to enjoy activities and meet counselors and others dealing with the aftermath of their injuries. “I cannot think of anything worse for a victim, other than maybe Alzheimer’s, than to be burned,” she said. “It takes away their dignity.” And while she said she’d hoped for a bigger turnout, this event — the second in three years — was just the beginning. Kessler and Allen said they were glad to be able to help raise money for victims and families. Firefighters themselves, who see the devastation as part of their jobs, agreed. Bill Abernathy of Allen Volunteer Fire Department said he’s seen what burn treatments can do to a family, emotionally and financially. “It’s not uncommon for a single visit to a burn center to range from $30,000 to $200,000,” he said. And that expense could come on top of losing everything in a blaze. Abernathy called the fund’s efforts to help families “a very worthy cause” that he plans to keep supporting — and hopes the community will turn out to make next year’s cook-off a blockbuster. “I’d like to see about 60 contestants out here,” he said.

KANNAPOLIS — When you think about it, a good bowl of chili is a lot like the bigger things in life, like government or relationships. Everyone has a little bit different way of doing things, usually with a story to back it up. And people tend to be very particular about their approaches, maybe even a little defensive. The friendly competition at Saturday’s second annual chili cook-off to benefit the N.C. Firefighters’ Burned Children Fund made the lawn at Afton Ridge shopping center a little warmer. The event was hosted by the Kannapolis Fire Department. Under tents and from the backs of trucks, crews vied for votes from members of the public and visiting firefighters. For a donation, tasters could take cups and spoons around and sample the recipes. Anyone who wanted a full bowl of their favorite hot stuff could dig in after that — teams cooked up enough to feed a firehouse. And a big bowl of voting slips kept at the judges’ tent, near the all-important cold drinks, waited to decide the eventual winner. Glenn Yowler of Flowes Store Volunteer Fire Department was cool and confident as he stirred a big stainlesssteel pot over an electric hot plate at his team’s station. His department’s entry began, he said, as the family’s tailgating recipe — “going to Cleveland Browns games back in the late ’80s,” he said. As to exactly what was in that pot … “Well, I could tell you,” Yowler said, “but then the Post would be looking for a new reporter.” After a tasting, he did admit that Italian sausage was part of the mix. For those who needed a little extra kick, they had everything from jalapeño peppers to Texas Pete, along with oyster crackers and shredded cheese, to help customize the chili experience. Not far off, two young men, Andy Allen and Jason Kessler, talked to onlookers and friends as their entry bubbled on a portable stove. Their recipe didn’t have as much history behind it, but it packed a lot of kick. “Our first pot was made Thursday,” Allen said. They said they heard about the contest and, amateur cooks that they are, decided to see what they could concoct. No luck getting their formula, either. “There’s a whole gang of ginger assassins who guard the recipe,” Allen said. (Kessler is a redhead.) After a little prodding, they Contact Hugh Fisher via did give away a few hints. The the editor’s desk at 704-797meat was organic, hormone- 4244.

For an invisible product, its benefits are clear. Every day Piedmont Natural Gas provides many things that aren’t always visible. Natural gas just happens to be one of them. It keeps you warm on a cold night. It helps you cook dinner. And it can even wash the dishes. It’s one of the most dependable and efficient energy sources available, so that makes your home feel more relaxing. You don’t have to worry about losing service during a storm. You can take longer showers without running out of hot water. And there are even natural gas generators that can keep refrigerators, lights and air conditioners working in the middle of a power outage. It’s a product so trusted that several of the country’s most critical buildings rely on natural gas, including the Pentagon, the White House and the Capitol building. It’s also one of the fastest-growing energy sources in the marketplace, now providing onefourth of the nation’s energy. And those 69 million customers are actually helping the environment by choosing natural gas. The average natural gas home emits 46% less carbon than an allelectric home. So the air enjoys fewer harmful emissions and you can enjoy a cozy fire without any soot or ashes. But whether you’re curled up by the fire or grilling out with friends, as a Piedmont Natural Gas customer you’ll

she feels she can offer a unique point of view. “My master’s of education in early childhood helps me link together the transition into public education from early childhood through the move into higher education,� she said. “Understanding the importance of early school readiness coupled with teaching at the community college level helps me see the big picture from start to finish.� Hogue said working with More at Four in Rowan County gave her the knowledge she needs to be a successful board member. “I am familiar with how boards operates and how important it is to be able to understand the decision-making process.� she said. “Having been in positions that were directly impacted by board level decisions, I am keenly aware of the importance of the work of boards being informed and well thought out.� Trail said he feels being both a school administrator in Cabarrus County and a parent gives him the upper hand. “I think my current role allows me to have insight that other candidates don’t have because I get to hear from teachers first hand,� he said. Norman said being on the board for more than 15 years gives her the experience to be successful. “I have earned the public’s trust as demonstrated by reelections,� she said. “I am honest, fair and dedicated to the cause of educating students using new tools and well-researched ‘best practices.’ �

Eric Trail Address: 130 Miles Drive, Salisbury Age: 39 Occupation: Assistant principal at Concord Middle School in Cabarrus County Education: Bachelor’s in religion, bachelor’s in history/education and master’s in school administration and curriculum

“I would like to serve on the school board in order to provide not only a current parent perspective, but also a perspective that is enhanced by my experience with Early Childhood Education and higher education.�

“I believe the school district is looking at ways to solve budget issues. I do believe there are always many ways to effectively spend the allocated money.�

“The school system should focus its efforts on enhancing technology but also keep a balance of traditional learning methods. In order to be globally competitive, our students certainly need to understand technology, but not all children learn or perform at the same level.�

“I am a servant leader. Having taught from preschool through the community college level, I have a broad spectrum of the needs and the gaps in the systems of education in all levels.�

“I believe ‘yes.’ Superintendent and her staff have secured about $10 million in grant money over the past 4 years. That has enriched our students, added to the local economy by adding staff, or at other times, this additional money has saved staff positions.�

“Technology is the world they live in. We cannot take children back to our time; our job is to move them forward.We must teach them in the world where they live using a variety of tools.�

“I have a personal vested interest because my kids will be in the school system. I am currently an educator ... I’m in the trenches with teachers and educators across the state and understand the needs.�

“I think we have to be creative in finding grant opportunities. I think we’ve just got to look at every avenue possible to secure more funding, whether its writing grants or holding the government and legislature accountable for funding.�

“There has to be a balance.Technology is everchanging, so yes we need to have technology. However, how is a teacher going to be able to teach if the technology they rely on fails. They have to go back to the basics.�

Meeting attendance The Post asked each candidate how many school board meetings they have attended in the past six months. Norman has been at every meeting, except one because of back surgery. Hogue has been to one and Trail did not attend any. “I have not had the need to attend,� Trail said. “If I were to have an issue with someone in the school system, I know who to contact, I know the procedures and I know how to

contact those individuals.�

Grading the superintendent Each candidate was asked to grade Superintendent Dr. Judy Grissom on her leadership. Hogue declined to give Grissom a score. “I believe, before I would be able to grade the superintendent, I would need to come in personal contact with her and I would also need to gath-

er information that reflects her level of achievement in reaching the goals that have been set for her,� she said. Both Norman and Trail gave Grissom high marks. Norman offered a grade of a B plus/A minus. “Rowan-Salisbury Schools have forged forward under her leadership.� she said. “It began with a vision of how the board wanted to develop our school system. “The superintendent is em-

powered to develop that into a meaningful educational process for students, leading principals and using staff develop ... to bring about a different paradigm for teaching and learning.� Trail said he would give Grissom a B for her ability to gauge what’s best of the students. “I think her forte is in curriculum and finding those programs that work for our kids,� he said.

Solving the funding dilemma

feels the school board has made strides to solve budget issues, it’s important to effectively spend the funds allocated. “If elected to the school board, I would like to join the finance committee so I can look more closely at how the money is being spent and what cuts could possibly be made without jeopardizing the quality of children’s education.� Trail said although the school system is doing some things well in regard to funding, more needs to be done. He cited the $2.2 million School Improvement Grant at Henderson Independent High School, which has been awarded to improve student achievement and increase the graduation rate as a step in the right direction. “I think we have to be creative in finding grant opportunities,� he said. “I think we’ve just got to look at every avenue possible to secure more funding, whether it’s writing grants or holding the government and legislature accountable for funding.� Trail said he would need to go through the budget line by line before making a decision about cuts. Norman said the school board is currently doing all it can to deal with budget concerns. “The superintendent and her staff have secured about $10 million in grant money over the past four years,� she said. “That has enriched our students, added to the local economy by adding staff, or at other times, this additional money has saved positions.� Norman said she hopes future cuts can be avoided. “We must be good stewards of taxpayer dollars,� she said. “However, we cannot educate children in the 21st century using 19th century dollars.� Editor’s note: This is the final installment in a series of three election preview stories about candidates seeking a seat on the Rowan-Salisbury Board of Education. Read complete candidate profiles by visiting and clicking Political Directory.

As the school system braces to deal with a budget deficit as a result of the expiration of stimulus funding, the school board might have some though decisions to make regarding expenditures during the upcoming fiscal year. The candidates all agree that the quality of the education should not be compromised. Contact Sarah Campbell at Hogue said although she 704-797-7683.

Official says moratorium may not be way to go on foreclosures

KOLONTAR, Hungary (AP) — The owners of the metals plant where a reservoir burst, flooding several towns in western Hungary with caustic red sludge, expressed their condolences Sunday to the families of the seven people killed, as well as to those injured — and said they were sorry for not having done so sooner. MAL Rt., which owns the alumina plant in Ajka, also said it was willing to pay compensation “in proportion to its responsibility” for the damage caused by the deluge. But the trouble may not be over. With the northwest corner of the storage pool still showing a hole 50 yards wide where the mix of mud and water broke through last week, officials said the collapse of at least one of the breached walls was inevitable. That, they said, would probably unleash a new deluge of toxic matter.

SpaceShipTwo was carried aloft by its mothership to an altitude of 45,000 feet and released over the Mojave Desert. After the separation, SpaceShipTwo, manned by two pilots, flew freely for 11 minutes before landing at an airport runway followed by the mothership. The entire test flight lasted about 25 minutes. “It flew beautifully,” said Virgin Galactic chief executive George Whitesides. The six-passenger SpaceShipTwo is undergoing rigorous testing before it can carry tourists to space. In the latest test, SpaceShipTwo did not fire its rocket engine to climb to space. Until now, SpaceShipTwo has flown attached to the wing of its special jet-powered mothership dubbed WhiteKnightTwo. Sunday was the first time the spaceship flew on its own. The news was hailed by space tourism advocates. The “flight marks another key milestone towards opening the space frontier for private individuals, researchers, and explorers,” John Gedmark, executive director of the Commercial Spaceflight Federation, said in a statement. Whitesides said SpaceShipTwo will make a series of additional glide flights before rocketing to space. SpaceShipTwo, built by famed aircraft designer Burt Rutan, is based on a prototype that won a $10 million prize in 2004 for being the first manned private rocket to reach space. Tickets to ride aboard SpaceShipTwo cost $200,000. Some 370 customers have plunked down deposits totaling $50 million, according to Virgin Galactic.

SAN JOSE MINE, Chile (AP) — After more than two months trapped deep in a Chilean mine, 33 miners were so giddy with confidence that officials said they were arguing over who would be the last to take a twisting 20-minute ride to daylight. Officials have drawn up a tentative list of the order in which the 33 miners should be rescued, and Health Minister Jaime Manalich said the otherwise cooperative miners were squabbling about it — so sure of the exit plan that they’re asking to let their comrades be first to reach the surface, probably Wednesday. “They were fighting with us yesterday because everyone wanted to be at the end of the line, not the beginning,” he told reporters. Manalich told the Associated Press that a few, in private conversations among themselves, have volunteered to go up first. “But no one has done so publicly,” he added. “I think they’re more excited than scared or nervous,” Brandon Fisher, president of Center Rock Inc., the Pennsylvania company whose hammer-style drill heads created the hole, told AP. “That first guy up might be a little nervous, though.”

country were extra busy Sunday as couples seeking a perfect 10 rushed to tie the knot on a once-in-a-century milestone: Oct. 10, 2010. In Las Vegas — long a destination for weddings — one marriage license bureau extended its Sunday hours from 6 p.m. to midnight to accommodate the rush. Hotels and churches in New Hampshire’s Seacoast area were booked long before Oct. 10. Wedding-related businesses said the day was perhaps the most sought-after wedding date since July 7, 2007, when the lucky 07-0707 marked the calendar. Some 10-10-10 couples even chose to take their vows at 10 a.m. One pastor in Nevada took the rush airborne by planning to join 30 couples at various venues Sunday and aboard a helicopter through the buzz of a headset. “This is kind of a neat way to spend my reVegas wedding chapels busy as tirement years.

gary of the red sludge that roared from a factory’s reservoir, downstream into the Danube River, are all too reminiscent of what happened a decade ago this week. A layer of dark goo still sits under a creekbed on Glenn Cornette’s land, the leftovers from when a coal company’s sprawling slurry pond burst, blackening 100 miles of waterways and polluting the water supply of more than a dozen communities before the stuff reached the Ohio River. A torrent as wide as a football field and 6 feet deep covered Cornette’s property near the West Virginia line. It killed all manner of plants and cut off his access to the street. “It just looked like pudding or something,” Cornette said recently.


WASHINGTON (AP) — A top White House adviser questioned the need Sunday for a blanket stoppage of all home foreclosures, even as pressure grows on the Obama administration to do something about mounting evidence that banks have used inaccurate documents to evict homeowners. “It is a serious problem,” said David Axelrod, who contended that the flawed paperwork is hurting the nation’s housing market as well as lending institutions. But he added, “I’m not sure about a national moratorium because there are in fact valid foreclosures that probably should go forward” because their documents are accurate. Axelrod said the administration is pressing lenders to accelerate their reviews of foreclosures to determine which ones have flawed documentation. “Our hope is this moves rapidly and that this gets unwound very, very quickly,” he said. With the reeling economy already the top issue on voters’ minds, the doubts raised over foreclosures and evictions are becoming a political issue as the Nov. 2 elections approach.

CHARLOTTE (AP) — North Carolina’s medical examiner says all police officers should get specialized training in crime scene investigations involving the death of a child. The Charlotte Observer reported Sunday that a legislative task force also says the state should hire trained death scene investigators to respond to reports of infant and child deaths. The proposal comes after a newspaper report found that police frequently fail to investigate cases of sudden infant death syndrome. The Observer’s series found that most North Carolina cases of SIDS contained evidence that the babies might have suffocated. Task force co-chairman Tom Vitaglione (vih-tah-LEE’own) says improving the knowledge of on-scene investigators can help determine whether deaths are natural. Officials also want to mandate the use of state-issued checklists when they go to death scenes. They’re now optional.

Investigators need on-scene training



A Salisbury man is in jail after police say he kicked an officer who was trying to take him into custody for fighting at Benchwarmers in downtown Salisbury. William E d g a r Roberts, 25, of 580 Squirrel Run, was arrested earSunday ly morning and ROBERTS charged with affray (fighting), assault on a law enforcement officer, resisting, delaying or obstructing an officer, second-degree trespassing and misdemeanor larceny. Roberts was placed in the Rowan County jail under a $3,000 secured bond. According to the arrest report, Roberts got into a fight at Benchwarmers, 113 E. Fisher St., and police were called. As Salisbury Police Officer K.H. Boem was attempting to arrest Roberts, Roberts kicked Boem in the leg, the report said. Roberts also refused to put his hands behind his back to be handcuffed. Charges from Davie County for an October 9, 2004, warrant for misdemeanor larceny and second-degree trespassing were also served.

Another part of the story T

here is another story here. That it has escaped us thus far is not surprising. After all, the primary story, the obvious one, is compelling and sad. In recent weeks, a string of teenagers have killed themselves after being tormented by classmates because they were, or were believed to be, gay. That includes 13-year-old Seth Walsh, who hanged himself, 13-year-old Asher Brown, who shot himself, 15-yearold Billy Lucas, LEONARD who hanged himPITTS self. It includes Tyler Clementi, an 18-year-old freshman at Rutgers who leapt into the Hudson River after his roommate secretly "webcammed" him making out with another man in their dorm room and streamed it live. Add in the bizarre case of Chris Armstrong, a gay University of Michigan student who is the target of ongoing harassment by no less august a personage than Michigan Assistant Attorney General Andrew Shirvell, and it's not hard to understand why the headline here is about the bullying of gay young people. In a 2005 Harris Poll, a staggering 90 percent of gay students (versus 62 percent of straights) reported being harassed or assaulted in school. So, the headline is appropriate. But separate Tyler Clementi from the others and you'll see: there's also another story here. Imagine an alternate scenario. Imagine that instead of a guy, Clementi was making love with a girl when his roommate, Dharun Ravi, went to another dorm room, remotely activated his webcam, and broadcast it to the world. With the distracting filter of homosexuality removed, a troubling question emerges. Forget gay or straight. How do you do that to someone? Anyone? How do you broadcast someone's moment of intimacy or private indiscretion for the world to laugh at? And why? As it happens, the Clementi tragedy was roughly coincident with a video that has been making the rounds in journalism circles. It takes place in a television newsroom. As a news reader is reporting in the foreground, an intern behind her, oblivious to the live camera, picks her nose and appears to eat what she finds. A link to the video reached my inbox with a note calling it hilarious. I disagreed. After all, this wasn't a clip from some sitcom. This was a real person, a young woman, finding herself reduced to a national punch line, a laughingstock, all because of one illconsidered moment. What she did was distasteful, yes. But the decision to share it with the whole wide world was worse. Proof that these are not isolated incidents is as close as YouTube. There is always some video going around whose calculated effect is nothing more or less than humiliation on a global scale. Technology, it seems, has unleashed an ugliness in us. In a Facebook, iPad, automated teller, self-serve, smart phone, email, voice recognition kind of world, it is increasingly possible to make it through an entire day without the bother of having to interact with other human beings. Maybe as a result, we are forgetting how. No, there is nothing new about pulling pranks. What is new is the distance we now have from other people, this tendency to objectify them. What is new is the worldwide reach technology now affords us. And what is new is the cruelty, this willingness to casually destroy someone else with a few clicks of a mouse. It is as if we have forgotten or never knew: people are not objects. They have feelings. They have intrinsic dignity and worth. And each of us is bound to respect that. There are things you just don't do to other people, and the fact that technology makes those things easy to do doesn't make that any less true. So yes, there is another story here, and it is wrenching, simple, and self-evident: Tyler Clementi was a human being. And he wasn't treated like one.

What about those falling between cracks? A

s I watch President Obama speak during different news conferences, I listen to him continue to say he wants tax cuts for the middle class. That’s great for them. But my automatic reaction is to stand up and yell at my television: “What about us?” Let me explain. You see, my family is one of many that are falling between the cracks, so to speak. I am unemployed, and my husband works 50-60 hours a week. He has done so for years. But the past two years, his pay has continued to decrease. We have cut costs in every way we can think. None of the four of us has a cell phone; we do not have Internet in our home; we do not subscribe to cable or dish service, and the last movie we took our two kids to see was more than two months ago. We have not been able to take a family vacation in more than three years. Not even a weekend trip. My husband and I share one vehicle, a truck, because we were forced to sell my car in August of 2009. Last year, our home phone went unpaid for more than two months so that I could buy my daughter a dance costume for her recital. Grandma graciously paid her monthly tuition. This year, Grandma can’t afford to do that, and I obviously can’t pay, which has broken my little girl’s heart. She has even asked me if I could let her dance classes be her Christmas and birthday present instead of toys. That broke my heart. However, that solution is still not a possibility. Last year, two weeks before Christmas, we took out a loan against my husband’s 401K to buy Christmas presents for our kids, and they did not get a lot. I don’t know how Christmas will go this year, but at least my kids know Christmas is to celebrate Jesus, not just an excuse to get gifts. Now, you may be asking: How does all this mean we fall between the cracks? I’ll tell you how. Most people in our position get EBT cards (food stamps). We have tried desperately to avoid that route, but this summer, we decided to swallow our pride and apply. We went to the office and waited patiently in long lines but knew it would be worthwhile in the long run. My husband and I left the building feeling as though a huge weight had been lifted. Our case manager went over all our information and let us know that we did indeed meet the requirements to receive assistance. She gave us pamphlets showing how to use our EBT card and told us we would receive it in the mail, along with a statement showing how much we would have on it to spend each month. We were so relieved. The case manager even gave me info on being able to go back to school with government assistance. That really thrilled me because that is something I have wanted for a long time but never thought I would be able to do. She also gave us information on charities that help people pay utility bills and assist with getting heat and air, which we were also thrilled to hear because our HVAC has worn out and is beyond repair. We thought we were going to have help with all of these things because we met the requirements for assistance. About six days later, I opened my mailbox to find an envelope from my county. Yeah! I was so excited that I wouldn’t have quite as much stress over how to pay for groceries. My tears of joy were quickly replaced by tears of shock, then sadness, then anger. There was no card, only a letter of rejection. I was devastated and dreaded telling my husband. We don’t have enough income to support us, but we make too much to receive assistance? Yep, there we go — right into the crack, the crack between lower class and middle class. At this point, the crack has turned into a canyon. Because we aren’t eligible to receive assistance for food, then apparently we can’t get help with getting heat for the winter, much less funding for school. Did you see that? My dreams of getting my degree just flew right out the window. So, President Obama, you want to give the middle class more tax cuts. Well, I want to know one thing: What about us? It’s cold down here in this crack. • • • Melissa Graham and her family live in Kannapolis.

Don’t blame ‘big business’ for the Democrats’ failures I’m writing in response to Marion McLaughlin’s oh so familiar and well-worn diatribe about “big business” as she refers to it (Oct. 8 letter). Not only big business but thinking, success-driven working people object to Democratic policies because they know how this country works and what is needed to bring the economy back. If big business is “taken down,” who will provide much needed employment for Americans? The government, of course. Nationalization of business is the order of the day. The more we depend on government, the more votes Democrats get. Democrats’ policies are essentially drilling holes in a sinking boat to let the water out. And if she wishes to rail against tycoons placing anti-Democrat ads and financing Republican candidates, perhaps she should first look in her own backyard at the likes of George Soros, Bill Gates, numerous Hollywood celebrities and other liberal tycoons largely unaffected by the proposed redistribution of wealth they propose who are financing the Democrats’ attack ads and political campaigns. They have spewed far more hatred and fomented far more fear than any Republican, even going so far as to accuse Republicans of starving school children. For a Democrat to accuse anyone of lying for political gain is the height of hypocrisy. It’s time for a change ... this time, one that is actually good for the country. — David Wilson Salisbury

N.C. fuel taxes too high The Salisbury Post and others should look into the road taxes our state is getting per day. When I filled up my truck recently, the total included $26 for the N.C. road tax. Fill up six times a month, that’s $156 in N.C. road taxes per month alone. Compare that to state sales taxes at clothing stores, Walmart, Food Lion, Bi-Lo, Harris Teeter etc. This equals $1,872 in yearly taxes for N.C. roads just for my truck. God knows how much it costs the big truckers per month or year. N.C. citizens, it’s time to stand up and get our system under control. We’re letting outside views destroy us.

The party of paychecks Newt Gingrich is right, in a way. The GOP is a party of the paychecks, big ones to the wealthy that own the party. True, the Democrats are the party of food stamps. It keeps the poor and unemployed from starving. After 10 years of tax breaks so the wealthy have money

Hearing-impaired girl with artificial leg missing in Hickory


HICKORY (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; As Hickory police searched for a missing, hearing-impaired 10year-old girl with an artificial leg, they arrested the childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stepmother Sunday on unrelated charges. Zahra Clare Baker was reported missing Saturday afternoon about 12 hours after her father and stepmother said they last saw her sleeping in her bed, the Hickory Police Department said in a news release Sunday. Hickory police spokesman Maj. Clyde Deal said Elisa Baker faces more than a dozen charges, including one felony, in cases unrelated to the disappearance of her stepdaughter. The charges include communicating threats, writing worthless checks, larceny and driving with a revoked license. Deal said the charges dated from 2006 through late 2009 and are from three counties.

inflation measure that was adopted by Congress back in the 1970s. Based on inflation so far this year, the trustees who oversee Social Security project there will be no COLA for 2011. The projection will be made official on Friday, when the Bureau of Labor Statistics releases inflation estimates for September. The timing couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be worse for Democrats as they approach an election in which they are in danger of losing the majority and the House and Senate. This past Friday, the same bureau delivered another painful blow to Democrats: The U.S. lost 95,000 jobs in September and unemployment remained stubbornly stuck at 9.6 percent. Democrats have been working hard to make Social Security an election-year issue, running political ads and holding press conferences to accuse Republicans of plotting to privatize the national retirement program. This weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s announcement about Social Security benefits raises more immediate concerns for older Americans whose savings and home values still havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t recovered from the financial collapse: Many havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had a raise since January 2009, and they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be getting one until at least January 2012. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While people arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t getting COLAs they certainly feel like theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re falling further and further behind, particularly in this economy,â&#x20AC;? said David Certner, AARPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legislative policy director. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are very reliant on Social Security as a major portion of their income and, quite frankly, they have counted on the COLA over the years.â&#x20AC;? Social Security was the primary source of income for 64 percent of retirees who got benefits in 2008, according to the Social Security Administration. A third relied on Social Security for at least 90 percent of their income. A little more than 58.7 million people receive Social Security or Supplemental Security Income. The average Social Security benefit is about $1,072 a month. Social Security recipients got a one-time bonus payment of $250 in the spring of 2009 as part of the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s massive economic recovery package. President Barack Obama lobbied for another one last fall when it became clear seniors wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get an increase in monthly benefit payments in 2010. Congress took up the issue, but a proposal by Sen. Bernie Sanders died when 12 Democrats and independent Sen. Joe Lieberman of Connecticut joined Senate Republicans to block it. Sen. Olympia Snowe of Maine was the only Republican to support the second bonus payment. Sanders, I-Vt., said he expects older voters to be angry when they learn there will be no increase for the second straight year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I do think thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be political fallout,â&#x20AC;? Sanders said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many seniors who are spending a lot of money on health care and prescription drugs really are going to find it hard to believe that there has been no inflationary costs to their purchasing needs.â&#x20AC;?

Some of Buck Curlee’s photographs from World War II, when he was a platoon sergeant. He will be among 17 Rowan County veterans traveling on the Flight of Honor to the World War II Memorial.


••• Curlee’s draft notice came in 1942. He was soon on a train to newly built Camp Van Dorn, Miss., where the tar-papered barracks created “a ramshackle place,” he recalls. It was where the 3rd Battalion of the 99th Infantry Division was formed. Additional training and division-level maneuvers followed at Camp Maxey in Paris, Texas, during July 1944. The 395th Infantry Regiment was held in the United States until more room was available for the unit to enter Europe. Meanwhile, “rejects” from an abandoned specialized training program at Fort Benning, Ga., came to fill some of the stripped ranks of the 99th Infantry Division and retrained to its standards, Curlee recalls. It was with many of these men that Curlee, a platoon sergeant, would fight in Europe in the fall and winter after the D-Day invasion. “A fighting bunch of men,” Curlee says proudly. During a 10-day furlough from Camp Maxey, Curlee returned to Salisbury and broached the question of marriage to his sweetheart, Hazel. He knew his division was departing for Europe when his furlough was over. “She said, ‘It’s right for me,’ ” Buck says. They married in South Carolina, and he soon joined his fellow soldiers at Camp Myles Standish outside Boston, from where they boarded a convoy of ships headed for England. It was Oct.10, 1944, and they later arrived in England under the cover of night. After being transported to an English camp, Curlee remembers waking up the next morning and asking, “Where the devil are we?” Outside, he noticed a sign post that said, “Salisbury.” “I said, ‘Lord, God. I’m already home.’ ” ••• For the record, Curlee belonged to the 1st Platoon, L company, 3rd Battalion, 395th Infantry Regiment of the 99th Infantry Division. Within three weeks of getting to England, they were crossing the English Channel and moving into France, where the Germans were on the run. Curlee, as part of the 395th Regiment, moved by train, truck and foot to frontline positions near the German town of Höfen, just west of the Siegfried Line and near the Belgium-German border. The 99th Infantry Division defended Hofen and probed the Siegfried Line


against heavy resistance in mid-December, defending the northern shoulder of the Battle of the Bulge during the Ardennes offensive. The German Sixth Panzer Army attacked the 99th Infantry Division but could not dislodge its men. Curlee says the division was cut up and surrounded in parts, but did not yield under the constant German attack. He remembers vividly the low rations of food and ammunition. He also recalls the day he looked out to a line of four German tiger tanks, with the Germans looking back at his platoon with field glasses. “We stood there and watched them for about an hour before they got back in their tanks and made a Uturn. ... I bet there wasn’t 30 rounds of ammunition in my whole platoon. We were surrounded and knew that was it.” The 99th Infantry Division held its positions until reinforcements arrived. On at least six occasions, it called in artillery strikes on or directly in front of its own positions. “We could set our clocks by the bombs coming in,” Curlee says.

ness for himself. He and Hazel raised two daughters, LaVone and Penny. The only house they ever owned was on Dunham Avenue, where Buck still lives today. Helen died on a Sunday afternoon in this house about three years ago. ••• Today Curlee keeps busy with yard work, housework and church. He has three grandchil-

Flight of Honor Though the final count could change over the next several weeks, 17 World War II veterans from Rowan County are scheduled to go on Rotary District 7680’s fifth Flight of Honor Nov. 9 to Washington, D.C. The veterans live in Salisbury, China Grove, Rockwell and Cleveland. They will be among more than 110 veterans from all branches of military service to go on the US Airways charter flight taking them to the World War II Memorial and other memorials of interest. They will depart from Charlotte-Douglas Airport the morning of Nov. 9, fly to Reagan National Airport, ride chartered buses to the various memorials and return to Charlotte by 7 or 8 p.m. the same day. The Flight of Honor was originally scheduled for Oct. 2, but was postponed because it conflicted with an AFL-CIO rally in Washing-

dren and a great-grandchild. On Nov. 9, he will be among 17 veterans from Rowan


••• For two years, Curlee trained soldiers at Fort Lewis as a first sergeant. Curlee always thought a sad thing about the Korean Conflict was that many of the men killed were Reservists, who already had served in World War II. Hazel was with him in Washington. They bought a 1951 Chevrolet to drive home in and later traded it for a 1950 Packard. In Salisbury, Curlee says, he worked for “three of the finest men” — Charlie Putzell, A.C. Menius and H. Allan Rouzer — in the years before going into busi-

••• Patrolling, restocking, rehabilitating and more offensives followed as Curlee was part of the efforts to clear towns along the Rhine, capture bridges and press forward into Germany. In one home, Curlee was part of a detail that cleared the stairs and went to the second floor, where a German soldier came out of a closet door, yelling “Heil, Hitler,” Curlee says. His buddy, Robert Adams of Harlan, Ky., threw the German out of a secondfloor window and onto a picket fence below. “You just get to a point where you just get callous,” Curlee says, apologizing for the memory. Curlee also describes the day he was in a house along the Siegfried Line when a robot bomb exploded, caving in the structure. All the men in his platoon survived, he says. After his knee was shot up, Curlee finished the war in France as part of the supervisory force for a prison camp holding 2,300 Germans. His days in the Army were not over, however. He had entered the Army Reserve but for years had never attended a meeting. After the Korean War broke out, Curlee received a letter to report to Fort Jackson, S.C., in five days. He was sworn in again at Fort Jackson and given 10 days to get his affairs in order before shipping out to Fort Lewis, Wash., from where soldiers were shipping out to Korea.

Buck Curlee always had a knack for finding a job — or the job found him. He grew up in the Cartex Mill village. The one-room schoolhouse in which Curlee was born in 1922 was the same place North Main Baptist Church was organized. “We were a rugged bunch,” he says of his big family. “My whole family were cotton mill people.” As was often the norm in those days, Curlee didn’t finish high school and again, not surprisingly, his first job was in a textile plant — Cannon Mills in Kannapolis. Curlee knew almost immediately the mill worker’s life was not for him. Two weeks into the job, he climbed the fence surrounding the plant one day and hitched a ride home on U.S. 29. When he walked into his parents’ house back in Salisbury, earlier than he was supposed to be home, his father and brothers were getting ready to leave for work. Curlee told his father he had quit. “Buck, if I were you, I wouldn’t go to bed,” his father said. The implication was clear: Buck had better not rest — had better not come back home — until he had another job. Buck walked into Rowan Creamery later that day, and his timing was perfect. Charlie Putzell hired him to help in the butter department. He was handed a white pair of overalls and a job for the next two years.

More misery for Panthers

BY CHARLES ODUM ATLANTA — Billy Wagner. Chipper 3 Jones. MarGiants 2 tin Prado. Braves Boy, the Atlanta Braves could have used their injured stars Sunday. Without Wagner, their closer, the Braves’ failed to protect a ninth-inning lead in Game 3. Without Jones and Prado, fill-in second baseman Brooks Conrad made three errors, including a miscue in the ninth that led to the go-ahead run in the San Francisco Giants’ 3-2 victory. “It’s heartbreaking,” said Tim Hudson who gave up four hits and one unearned run — thanks to Conrad’s first error — in seven innings.

There was postgame talk that manager Bobby Cox might consider replacing Conrad for Monday night’s Game 4. But how? With whom? “Most of our viable options are on the disabled list,” Jones said in a somber Braves clubhouse. The Braves tried not to dwell on the players no longer available. The injury list also includes two starting pitchers, right-hander Kris Medlen (right elbow) and Jair Jurrjens (hamstring). “It’s easy to hang that up as an excuse, but nobody in here is using that as an excuse,” Hudson said. “We have confidence in the guys we’re putting out there.”

opening kickoff. But from 4 to 7 p.m., there seemed to be just as much excitement off the field. At 4 p.m., there was a line of people at the ticket window. That’s 31⁄2 hours before kickoff. Some were sitting at the gate. Others, like Randy Robertson and his family, were out in the parking lot tailgating with — he was quick to tell me — cases of Sun Drop. By 5 p.m., fans for both teams were already filing into the stands. At 5:30, Carson athletic director Jim Grkman was informed that pre-sale tickets had gone through the roof. The Cougar athletic program had already made $14,000.

It was treated like some sort of double-secret entrance. The pizza deliveryman used it. What a sight to see concession stand workers climbing over the fence to get the food.

Stewart wins; Johnson third BY JOHN MARSHALL Associated Press

FONTANA, Calif. — Tony Stewart outdueled points leader Jimmie Johnson on a late restart and pulled away for his first career Sprint Cup win at Auto Club Speedway on Sunday. Stewart started 22nd after a rough qualifying day, but was strong from the start of a lead-swapping 400-mile race, the final fall date at Fontana. He vaulted five spots in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship with his first win in 19 tries at California, but Johnson pushed his points cushion to 36 over Denny Hamlin with six races left.

Clint Bowyer went around Johnson on the final lap to finish second in his first race without suspended crew chief Shane Wilson. It wasn’t such a good day for several other Chase drivers. Kyle Busch, Greg Biffle and Carl Edwards all had their Chase chances dented by engine troubles, and Matt Kenseth finished a disappointing 30th. Stewart was well back in the Chase after running out of fuel while leading late at Loudon and struggling Dover. He had a good showing last week at Kansas, finishing fourth, but still entered this weekend 10th in points, 127 behind Johnson.

giddy. Carson coach Mark Woody was calm and focused, but you could tell he was enjoying his team getting this chance at being a prime-time player. West Rowan? Scott Young’s players said they had heard the trash talk since the summer. They weren’t giddy. They were all business. They knew exactly who they were as they stoically marched onto the field. No laughing. No cutting up. Just eyes straight forward. The Falcons’ look said it all. They were the big, bad blue and they had a job to do. When the game began, Grkman had issues. The scoreboard didn’t work so he had to call the electri-

cian. Grkman got the scoreboard working in the second quarter. Carson fans wished it would have stayed off. West was well on its way to its 38th straight victory. • As the teams lined up for the kickoff, I was driving out onto Highway 152. Cars were lined up along the road past I-85 and winding around the curve up the hill. It’s incredible there were no accidents. People were walking in the middle of the road. Others walked through the woods. Some even said they parked at Gary’s Barbecue over a mile away and walked.

Russian owner promises winner MOSCOW (AP) — New Jersey Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov presented his team to the Russian public Sunday, meeting many of the players for the first time and reiterating a vow to turn them into a championship team in five years. The Russian tycoon, who took over ownership in May, hosted an exhibition in Moscow where Nets stars including Devin Harris and Jordan Farmar participated in drills with local kids aged 8 to 18. Prokhorov high-fived players when they were introduced and later described ambitious plans to make the playoffs in the coming season and win a championship by 2015. “Our task is to become champions in five years. I hope we’ll do it,” Prokhorov said. For on-the-court success, he’ll have his work cut out. The Nets were 12-70 last season, and missing out on LeBron James combined with a disappointing draft leaves many observers wondering exactly what will make them contenders this time around.

The promise of a new arena in Brooklyn, a new coaching staff led by Avery Johnson, and the raw aggression of a youthful roster, Prokhorov insisted, would ensure that “with a big fight, we’ll be in the playoffs next season.” Success may hinge on the acquisition of Carmelo Anthony. When asked, Prokhorov hinted the Denver Nuggets All-Star was still a target despite The Associated Press being told last month by a person close to discussions that the deal was dead. “We will use any opportunity to make the team stronger,” Prokhorov said, refusing to comment more specifically. His ambition was already evident in the coach. “We want Nets basketball to be the cream of the crop, of the NBA,” Johnson told The Associated Press, calling the playoffs target “realistic” but warning “nothing’s going to happen overnight.” Johnson promised a more defensive-minded team with better 3-point shooting this season.

Phillies wrap it up Associated Press

CINCINNATI — Cole Hamels completed what Roy HallaPhillies 2 day started, putting the Reds 0 Philadelphia Phillies back in the NL championship series. Another ace, another dominating performance. Hamels struck out nine in a five-hitter, Chase Utley homered and the Phillies beat the Reds 2-0 on Sunday night to finish off the franchise’s first playoff sweep. Philadelphia, trying to become the first NL team in 66 years to win three straight pennants, will host San Francisco or Atlanta in the NLCS opener on Saturday. The Giants beat the Braves 3-2 Sunday to take a 2-1 lead in their best-offive division series. Halladay opened this matchup with the second no-hitter in postseason history. With Hamels and Roy Oswalt also rested and ready to go for the next round, look out.

“Having three starters definitely helps,” Hamels said. “The playoffs are all about pitching.” The Reds, making their first postseason appearance in 15 years, committed six errors in the last two games of the series after finishing second in the NL with a club-record .988 fielding percentage during the regular season. The NL’s top offense managed only 11 hits in three games — the fewest for a team in a postseason series. The previous low was 13 by Texas against the New York Yankees in 1998. Hamels got Joey Votto to ground into a double play after Brandon Phillips’ leadoff single in the ninth, then struck out Scott Rolen to end the game. The lanky left-hander threw 119 pitches in his first postseason complete game, 82 for strikes. After Rolen struck out for the eighth time in the series, Hamels pumped his fist and the Phillies celebrated with a few chest bumps and a handshake line before returning to the locker room for more champagne.

Of course, it all looked very routine — Charlie Manuel’s team has practiced this a lot over the past couple of years. “I think when you have that playoff experience and you’ve been able to go to the World Series the past two years in row, you know what it takes to get there,” Hamels said. “We don’t want to get too carried away. ... We’re just going to move on and play the best baseball we can.” Utley, greeted with loud boos and chants of “Cheater! Cheater!” before each at-bat, connected against Johnny Cueto in the fifth, giving the Phillies a 2-0 lead. It was his 10th career postseason homer, moving him past teammate Jayson Werth and into first on the club’s career list. Utley started Philadelphia’s winning rally in Game 2 when he was hit by a pitch from hard-throwing reliever Aroldis Chapman in the seventh inning. The All-Star second baseman acknowledged after the game he wasn’t sure if the ball hit him, and a record assOciated pRess crowd of 44,599 at Great American Ball cincinnati’s drew stubbs gets back to the wall but runs out of Park made it clear what it thought of the room on a home run by philadelphia’s chase Utley. play.

Rays still alive Associated Press

ARLINGTON, Texas — Evan Lon5 goria is still Rays 2 limping. Rangers Now he’s also hitting, and the Tampa Bay Rays are headed home, one victory from an improbable comeback. Longoria snapped out of his postseason slump with a homer and two doubles, Carlos Pena scored twice with a pair of extra-base hits of his own and Tampa Bay escaped elimination again with a 5-2 victory Sunday over the Texas Rangers to force a deciding Game 5 in the AL division series. “We’ve really battled to get back to even,” Longoria said. “And I think we have a lot of confidence going home, and being able to finish the series in our home ballpark.” To do that they’ll have to beat Cliff Lee who matched a postseason best with 10 strikeouts in a 5-1 series-opening victory. The Rays lost the two games at Tropicana Field before winning twice in Texas to push a division series to a fifth game for the first time since

the Los Angeles Angels beat the New York Yankees in 2005. “I still want to believe there is a home-field advantage and hopefully that’s going to show up,” manager Joe Maddon said. “The extra game at home, I have been talking about it all along.” If the Rays win they will join the 2001 Yankees as the only teams to lose the first two games at home and still win a five-game series. The series winner hosts Game 1 of the AL championship series Friday night against Yankees. New York swept Minnesota in three games, clinching the other division series with a 6-1 win Saturday night. Texas is still the only current major league franchise that has never won a postseason series, and still has not won a playoff game in front of its home fans (0-6). “It’s down to one game, we’ve got Cliff going and certainly feel good about that,” Rangers manager Ron Washington said. “We have proved that we can win there.” Tampa Bay sends 19-game winner David Price to the mound Tuesday night in a re-

evan Longoria and carlos pena get excited after tampa Bay evened the series. match of the Game 1 starters. “I like our chances with Dave on the mound again,” Longoria said. The Rays’ resurgent offense helps, too. Longoria, still limited by a left quad strain that forced him to miss the last 10 games of the regular season, was in an 0-for-12 slide before he and Pena had consecutive doubles starting the fourth against Tommy Hunter. Longoria added a two-run homer in the fifth for a 5-0 lead. “I kind of felt like Kirk Gibson going around the bases,” he said.

Wagner, who had 37 saves, was replaced on the Braves’ postseason roster Sunday after straining his left oblique on Friday night. Takashi Saito took his place on the roster. With Wagner watching, rookies Craig Kimbrel and Mike Dunn combined to give up two runs in the ninth, blowing a 2-1 lead. Kimbrel gave up two hits and Dunn gave up a run-scoring single to Aubrey Huff. “I thought they handled themselves well; it could have just as easily been me,” Wagner said. “They were battling, doing everything you expected.” Cox turned to veteran right-hander Peter Moylan. Buster Posey hit a grounder that bounced under Conrad’s glove and went through his legs, allowing Freddy Sanchez to score the go-ahead run as many in the sellout crowd booed. Conrad, a utility infielder most of the season, was best known for his two pinch-hit grand slams. He became a starter at third base when Prado was lost on Sept. 27 with hip and oblique injuries. Almost immediately, Conrad’s miscues began. He has eight errors in his last seven games. Conrad’s two throwing errors led to a combined seven unearned runs in key losses to Philadelphia on the last weekend of the regular season, prompting Cox to move the 30-year-old rookie to second base. Omar Infante moved from second base to third. When asked if he will start Conrad on Monday, Cox said “I’ll have to sleep on it.” The Braves have shortstop Diory Hernandez and former third baseman Troy Glaus on their bench. Hernandez played one

inning at second base this season. Glaus started at first base, and was the NL player of the month in May, before the Braves traded for Derrek Lee on Aug. 18. Glaus made only one regular-season appearance at third base and turned a key double play when he played an inning at third base in Friday’s win. Mobility would be the question for Glaus, who was unable to field a bunt on Friday night. He missed 14 games in August with a left knee injury. Prado, the All-Star starter at second base, moved to third when Jones sustained a season-ending knee injury in August. Since Prado’s season-ending injury, Conrad’s woes have continued at second base, the position he played through most of his minor league career. He made an error in the Braves’ 1-0 loss in Game 1 and three more blunders Sunday. “It’s very hard,” Jones said. “There isn’t a guy in here who wouldn’t take Brooks Conrad in their foxhole any day. He works his tail off. He deserves better than what happened today. We want so bad for him to be successful.” As Cox made a pitching change after the Giants took the lead, Conrad stood alone until Lee walked over from first base to offer consolation. “I was just being there for him,” Lee said. “We’ve all been there. We’ve all had tough games. I didn’t say too much.” All players have had bad games, but three errors in a playoff game is a different matter. It matched a postseason record for errors in a game by a position player. He became the fourth second baseman to make three errors. “He’s been such a huge part of this team, he’s had so many big moments,” Lee said.

New No. 1: Buckeyes Associated Press

assOciated pRess

Victory is sweet for tony stewart, who started the race 22nd.

RACE FROM 1B Juan Pablo Montoya. In the lead again late, Stewart opted not to pit after an accident took out Chase driver Kurt Busch and pulled away from Johnson on the restart with two laps left. Bowyer passed Johnson, but was nowhere close to Stewart at the end. Stewart moved up to fifth in the Chase, 107 points behind Johnson. Johnson had made his now-expected surge to the top of the Chase standings, using a win at Dover and second last week at Kansas after a poor qualifying session to move past Hamlin. This one has a little different feel, though, the aura of invincibility gone from the No. 48 after an atypical up-and-down season. Nine drivers were within 101 points after Kansas, making it one of the tightest races Johnson has faced during his Cup-after-Cup run. Still, he had won four of his previous six starts at Fontana, including the past three fall races, and started a solid eighth Sunday while many of those chasing him had trouble in Friday’s qualifying. Five of the first six spots on the grid were nabbed by non-Chasers and only Kenseth (third) and Biffle (seventh) were in the Top 10. Way behind them were Chasers Harvick

(21st), Stewart (22nd), Hamlin (34th) and Kurt Busch (38th) who had a lot of chasing to do. Hamlin’s climb became even tougher when he was dropped to the back of the field for a transmission change. The good news for them is that Auto Club Speedway is nearly as wide as nearby Interstate 10, passing open even at four-wide. The Chasers took advantage, too, with seven of the top eight cars in the Chase by Lap 90. Johnson was among the JOHNSON movers, up to fifth in the first three laps, second after 19 and into the lead on Lap 47 even after dealing with debris on his front grill that pushed his engine temperature reached near 300 degrees. He stayed out front for a while, had his car fade to drop to 10th, then starting working his way back to the front again. Johnson moved into second by passing Kasey Kahne with nine laps left, but didn’t have enough to keep up with Stewart on the restart or to hold off Bowyer. Still, he walks away with a bigger points lead. Harvick moved up to finish seventh to remain third in the Chase and Hamlin was eighth after starting at the back of the pack due to a new transmission. Jeff Gordon, another Chase driver, overcame a late speeding penalty on pit road to finish ninth and move up to fourth in the Chase, while Kurt Busch was 21st after the accident.

NEW YORK — Ohio State is the new No. 1 in The Associated Press college football poll. The Buckeyes moved up one spot in the Top 25 after preseason No. 1 Alabama lost for the first time this season. The Crimson Tide fell 35-21 on Saturday at South Carolina. Oregon is No. 2, followed by Boise State, TCU, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Auburn. Ohio State received 34 first-place votes and Oregon (15), Boise State (eight), TCU (one) and Oklahoma (two) also got first-place votes from the media panel. The Crimson Tide slipped to No. 8, LSU was No. 9 and South Carolina moved up nine spots to 10th after the program’s first victory against a top-ranked team. The last time Ohio State was No. 1 was the final regular season poll of 2007. • COLUMBIA, S.C.— Steve Spurrier was thrilled with South Carolina’s first victory over a No. 1 opponent. Now, he’s ready to see his 10th-ranked Gamecocks can back it up the rest of the season. Spurrier said Sunday the 35-21 win over previously top-ranked Alabama won’t matter as much if South Carolina can’t keep that same focus and challenge for the SEC title. The Gamecocks (4-1, 2-1 SEC) certainly look as if they’ve got what it takes to contend. Spurrier said quarterback Stephen Garcia played the best game of his career and tailback Marcus Lattimore and receiver Alshon Jeffery accounted for all five Gamecocks touchdowns. South Carolina improved

nine spots in the rankings after the victory. Alabama dropped to No. 8.

NASCAR INDIANAPOLIS — ExNASCAR driver Shane Hmiel is in critical but stable condition after being injured Saturday night during qualifying for the U.S. Auto Racing Club’s Silver Crown race at Terre Haute Action Track. Hmiel was banned for life from NASCAR in 2006 after failing three drug tests. The USAC says the 30-year-old driver from Pleasant Garden, was airlifted to Indianapolis’ Methodist Hospital, where he was in critical condition with head injuries. The Tribune-Star of Terre Haute reported that Hmiel’s No. 17 car slammed into the outside wall between the third and fourth turns and rolled over several times, damaging the protective roll cage. Hmiel’s father, Steve, says his son has a “long road to recovery.”

GOLF ST. ANDREWS, Scotland — Lee Westwood is set to replace Tiger Woods at the top of the rankings Oct. 31 after saying Sunday he does not expect to play again until November because of an ankle injury. The Englishman will climb to No. 1 if he does not return before the end of the month and Woods follows through with his intention not to play again until the HSBC Champions on Nov. 47. Westwood has been struggling with a right ankle injury and finished tied for 11th at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship. Asked when he might play again, Westwood said: “At the earliest probably HSBC, maybe Dubai (Nov. 25-28).” Woods has topped the rankings for over five years, since the week before the 2005 U.S. Open at Pinehurst. Woods will have been at No. 1 for 279 weeks in Monday’s rankings. Westwood said his injury had been troubling him for a while.



Redskins win Associated Press

LANDOVER, Md. — For the fourth time in five weeks, the nerves Redskins 16 m o u n t e d Packers 13 along the Washington Redskins sideline as the game once again came down the final snap. They’re finding all sorts of ways to win — except, that is, by taking a knee. This time the shouts of exultation had to wait until Graham Gano’s 33-yard field goal sailed through the uprights 6:54 into overtime. It gave the Redskins a 16-13 win over the Green Bay Packers and an unexpected 3-2 record for a team that won only four games last season. It’s almost too much to take. “You wish you could do something different, man,” receiver Santana Moss said, shaking his head. “But I’ll take ’em. As long as they’re Ws out there, I’ll take ’em.” Washington has had two games go to overtime and

two that ended on passes thrown into the end zone by the opposing team at the end of regulation. This one came after the Redskins were thoroughly dominated for much of the afternoon, the defense allowing 427 yards and the offense allowing Donovan McNabb to get sacked five times. They also overcame a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter. But the Redskins have come out on top more often than not, a switch universally attributed in the locker room to new coach Mike Shanahan. “These are the games,” fullback Mike Sellers said, “we didn’t win in the past.” And these are the games the Packers (3-2) aren’t supposed to lose, not if they’re going to keep their Super Bowl aspirations intact. They were coming off a fortunate, two-point win over Detroit that had no one in the locker room celebrating, and that followed a three-point loss to Chicago in which they had a team-record 18 penalties.

T.O.’s tweets a violation Associated Press

CINCINNATI — A message on Terrell Owens’ Twitter feed Sunday violated the NFL’s rules against using social media before games. A post on his Twitter account noted that a fan wearing his jersey at the Bengals’ game against Tampa Bay would get a football signed by him and Chad Ochocinco. The message was posted an hour before kickoff, violating the NFL’s social media policy that prohibits posts 90 minutes before a game. Owens was on the field shortly after the message was posted on his Twitter account. “A lucky fan wearing my jersey 2day will get a signed football by Me & Ocho Cinco! My asst will pick U out!! Good luck!” the message said. Even if someone else posted it on his account, it would violate the NFL’s restrictions on players and coaches using

social media before, during and after games. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said, “We will look into it.” He added nothing further was expected today. Ochocinco was fined $25,000 by the league for tweeting before and during a preseason game against Philadelphia in August. He was the first player fined for violating the year-old policy. Ochocinco apologized after his violation and promised the league he wouldn’t do it again. He has kept his word, respecting the NFL’s time frame for tweeting. Several hours before the kickoff on Sunday — well within NFL guidelines — Ochocinco tweeted about his pet pigeon and a few other topics. “Man watching the morning news n something always is going on wrong in the world, will there ever b a 24 hr problem free day?” Ochocinco tweeted.

Jets are backing up chatter heading into tonight’s game Associated Press

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Other than boxers, wrestlers and the occasional diva wide receiver, professional athletes tend to be careful with their words. Rex Ryan would rather be careful with the football. His philosophy: Let the verbiage flow. As long as you back up what you say, what does it matter, anyway? So far, Ryan’s New York Jets are putting up, so they don’t have to shut up. When they meet Brett Favre, Randy Moss and the Minnesota Vikings tonight — the Jets’ third prime-time game in five weeks — it’s an opportunity to solidify their role as a title contender. And yet another chance to brag. “No. 1, we’ve got a good football team here, an excellent football team,” Ryan said. “We’ve got guys that are passionate about each other; this is a team.” That 3-1 team meets a 1-2 Vikings squad that is trying to avoid being distracted by accusations from a former Jets game hostess that Favre sent her inappropriate messages and lewd photos when he played for the Jets in 2008. Favre would not respond last week to a report on the website

Deadspin, which also said he came on to massage therapists who worked part-time for the Jets. On the field, New York has looked as good as anyone since an opening 10-9 loss to Baltimore. The Jets then swept their division rivals by beating the Patriots, Dolphins and Bills in rather convincing fashion. “Nobody felt worse than we did after that game,” Ryan said of the defeat in the Jets’ first real game in their new stadium. “We did give great effort, but the results weren’t great. We have to talk about this the whole season. We lost to a good team by a point. “Our team is resilient. We proved that last year when we were the first team in NFL history to overcome two three-game losing streaks (and make the playoffs). I think that spoke volumes about our team. We have a special locker room. Our guys compete. They love it. “The thing I’m really proud of is the way they prepare ... the way our guys study and do the extra things, take care of themselves in the weight room. That gives us an edge over a lot of teams.” Most teams don’t like to give any sort of verbal edge to the opposition. You know, the old pin-it-up-onthe-bulletin-board advantage. Ryan’s Jets don’t care.

the air and I came down with it. The celebration was selfexplanatory.” With Forte rushing for 166 yards and Chicago’s first two touchdowns rushing of the season behind a revamped offensive line, the Bears (4-1) bounced back from an ugly loss against the New York Giants, They did just enough to beat the Panthers (0-5), who again couldn’t move the ball with quarterback Jimmy Clausen. The rookie was 9 of 22 for 61 yards and a pick before being lifted late in the game for Matt Moore, who then threw two interceptions. Carolina, the NFL’s lowest-scoring team, managed two field goals and 147 yards. “You’re not going to go from a rookie quarterback to an All-Pro quarterback in one week or a few games or a season,” Clausen said. “It’s just a progression that you’ve got to go through.” Carolina’s offseason costcutting and youth movement began with the decision to let Peppers leave in free agency. The North Carolina native signed a six-year, $91.5 million deal with the Bears. With Cutler sidelined with a concussion and the 38-yearold Collins immobile, shaky and inaccurate before he was yanked, Chicago needed its defense to silence a surly

I’m (in Chicago) now,” Peppers said. “You see the shirt. I’m not for the home team, so that’s what I expected.” Collins, making his first NFL start since 2007 in Washington, completed just 6 of 16 passes for 32 yards before Caleb Hanie took over in the fourth quarter. Yet when Collins exited with a 6.2 passer rating, his team was ahead 17-6. The Panthers, who didn’t have top receiver Steve Smith (ankle), became the first NFL team since 1999 to start rookies at QB and both receiver spots. When the running game

dried up after a good first drive, the Panthers were stymied even with the help of Collins’ poor passes. Israel Idonije had three of Chicago’s five sacks and the Bears overcame the loss of linebacker Lance Briggs to an ankle injury in the second half. It allowed Peppers to leave Charlotte triumphant. “Julius was trying to be low-key as much as possible, but when you come home, it’s always exciting,” Bears coach Lovie Smith said. “He has a lot of fans here and a lot of people saw him grow up from a young kid to the guy he is today. To come back with another team and win the football game and let everyone see how well you are doing is big.” Peppers shook smiling Carolina coach John Fox’s hand almost immediately after coming onto the field about 35 minutes before kickoff. Peppers called and lost the opening coin toss, but the Panthers deferred to the second half and the Bears had a 7-0 lead before the game was two minutes old. Danieal Manning returned a low kickoff 62 yards. Four plays later, Forte took a pitch 18 yards to the end zone. Forte surpassed 100 yards before the first quarter was over, racing 68 yards down the left sideline for a score. Not bad for a team without a touchdown rushing in its first four games. “It made it an easier offensive game for us to run the ball like that first,” Forte said.

assoCIated press

Indianapolis back Mike Hart lunges for a touchdown despite the efforts of Kansas City’s Kendrick Lewis (23).

Nobody’s perfect Associated Press INDIANAPOLIS — Mike Hart scored the game’s only touchdown on an 11-yard run with 4:02 to go and the Indianapolis Colts handed the Kansas City Chiefs their first loss of the season 19-9 on Sunday, leaving the NFL without any unbeaten teams. It’s the first time since 1970 that no team has reached 4-0. The Colts (3-2) won in atypical fashion. For the first time this season, Peyton Manning failed to top 300 yards or throw for a touchdown. He finished 26of-44 for 244 yards with one interception and couldn’t get the Colts into the end zone until Hart’s clinching score. Hart replaced Joseph Addai midway through the third quarter with what appeared to be a right shoulder injury. He did not return. Jamaal Charles carried 16 times for 87 yards, and Matt Cassel was 16-of-29 for 156 yards for Kansas City (3-1) Ryan Succop kicked three field goals. The Chiefs opened the game with an onside kick, but the ball never traveled the required 10 yards. The Colts took possession and Adam Vinatieri opened the scoring with a 20-yard field goal. Cardinals 30, Saints 20 GLENDALE, Ariz. — Max Hall’s debut as Arizona’s quarterback was a winning one as the Cardinals defense intercepted three passes by Drew Brees. The undrafted rookie from BYU completed 17 of 27 passes for 168 yards, Jay Feely kicked three field goals and Kerry Rhodes returned a fumble 27 yards for a score to lead the way. Hall threw an interception that led to an early Saints field goal and fumbled twice, but both turned out to be key plays for Arizona (3-2). The first was returned 2 yards by Cardinals tackle Levi Brown for a touchdown. Guard Alan Faneca pounced on the other for a 10-yard gain. Raiders, 35 Chargers 27 OAKLAND, Calif. — Michael Bush ran 3 yards for the go-ahead touchdown with 3:39 remaining and Tyvon Branch returned a fumble 64 yards for a score as Oakland snapped a 13-game losing streak against San Diego. All it took to end the seven-year drought for the Raiders (2-3) was two blocked two punts, two long touchdown drives in the second half led by backup quarterback Jason Campbell and the big play at the end by Branch and Michael Huff. This was Oakland’s first win over San Diego (2-3) since September 2003 — which was the second longest active streak to Buffalo’s 14-game losing streak to New England. Titans 34, Cowboys 27 ARLINGTON, Texas — Chris Johnson scored a pair of 1-yard touchdowns in the fourth quarter, lifting Tennessee over mistake-prone Dallas. The Cowboys got behind 17-3 with penalties and errors on defense. Dallas managed to tie it at 17 and 20, then a tipped pass that was intercepted set up Johnson’s first touchdown of the final period. Tony Romo tied it again at 27 on a touchdown throw to Jason Witten, then offensive lineman Marc Colombo was penalized 15 yards for celebrating. Dallas (1-3) kicked off from farther back and Tennessee’s Marc Mariani returned it to the 11. A penalty on the tackle moved the ball to the 5, setting up Johnson’s next touchdown. Lions 44, Rams 6 DETROIT — Stefan Logan’s 105yard kickoff return broke a tie and sent the Lions to their first win of the season and ended a 10-game losing streak. The win was the Lions’ most-lopsided since beating the expansion Jacksonville Jaguars 44-0 in 1995. Logan’s franchise-record tying score helped the Lions (1-4) outscore St. Louis 21-3 in the second quarter, and they didn’t let up. The Rams (2-3) lost standout receiver Mark Clayton with an injured knee in the first quarter and limited rookie Sam Bradford’s passing options — he was 23 of 45 for 215 yards with two interceptions. Ravens 31, Broncos 17 BALTIMORE — Ray Rice ran for 133 yards and two touchdowns, and Baltimore frustrated Denver quarterback Kyle Orton.

Baltimore (4-1) jumped to a 17-0 lead and coasted to its third straight win, the first this season by double digits. The Ravens moved past idle Pittsburgh into sole possession of first place in the AFC North. The Broncos (2-3) fell to 0-5 against the Ravens in Baltimore. In those games, Denver has been outscored 14256, including 60-24 over the last two years. Orton completed his fourth straight 300-yard passing game with a 44-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Lloyd with 35 seconds left. It was of little consolation to the Broncos, who hurt themselves by losing a fumble and committing 10 penalties for 90 yards. Giants 34, Texans 10 HOUSTON — Eli Manning threw two of his three touchdown passes to Hakeem Nicks and the Giants held Houston to a franchise-low 24 yards rushing. Nicks finished with career highs of 12 catches and 130 yards, another big day for a receiver against the Texans’ porous secondary. Manning finished 27 of 42 for 297 yards, and threw his third TD pass to Steve Smith in the fourth quarter. Osi Umenyiora sacked Texans quarterback Matt Schaub twice and also forced a fumble for the Giants (3-2). New York held NFL rushing leader Arian Foster to 25 yards on 11 carries. Falcons 20, Browns 10 CLEVELAND — Defensive end Kroy Biermann’s spectacular interception return for a touchdown in the fourth quarter led Atlanta. After pressuring Browns quarterback Jake Delhomme, Biermann leaped to deflect the pass and then made a diving headfirst catch like a seasoned wide receiver. Knowing he had not been touched, Biermann scrambled to his feet and rumbled 31 yards on a twisting, turning effort to give the Falcons a 20-10 lead with 4:01 left. Matt Ryan threw a 45-yard TD pass to Roddy White as the Falcons (4-1) won their fourth straight. Michael Turner rushed for 140 yards. Jaguars 36, Bills 26 ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Tight end Marcedes Lewis caught two touchdowns passes as Jacksonville rallied from a 10-point deficit to keep Buffalo winless. David Garrard shook off an interception and a lost fumble to throw for three touchdowns as the Jaguars (3-2) snapped a four-game road skid. Mike Sims-Walker’s 7-yard touchdown put the Jaguars ahead for good, 27-20 lead late in the third quarter. Lewis scored on 1- and 27-yard receptions to give him five TDs on the season, breaking the Jaguars’ franchise record for scores by a tight end. Josh Scobee made all five field-goal attempts. Buccaneers 24, Bengals 21 CINCINNATI — Carson Palmer’s third interception gave Tampa Bay one last chance, and Connor Barth kicked a 31-yard field goal with 1 second left. Second-year quarterback Josh Freeman set up the winning kick with a sensational pass, hitting Micheal Spurlock along the sideline for a 21-yard completion to the 13. Spurlock kept both toes inbound for a falling-down catch that was upheld on review. It was a signature win for young Tampa Bay (3-1), which hadn’t beaten a contender. With Freeman leading the way, the Buccaneers took down the defending AFC North champions. The Bengals (2-3) had a chance for a go-ahead field goal, but Palmer’s tipped pass went to safety Sabby Piscitelli, setting up Tampa Bay’s winning kick. Eagles 27, 49ers 24 SAN FRANCISCO — While the Philadelphia Eagles came together just fine behind Kevin Kolb, the San Francisco 49ers appeared to be coming apart at the seams until Alex Smith led a thrilling fourth-quarter rally that fell just short. Kolb passed for 253 yards while capably filling in for injured Michael Vick, and Quintin Mikell returned Smith’s fumble 51 yards for a touchdown early in the fourth quarter in a victory over the winless 49ers on Sunday night. LeSean McCoy rushed for 92 yards and a score, and Trevard Lindley made a last-minute interception for the Eagles (3-2).

Dexter hires a nanny.

Popcorn popped in olive oil OK on Gott diet Dear Dr. Gott: I started your diet six days ago. I have lost one pound and am thrilled. I wonder if I can eat popcorn as a snack while on your diet. I pop it in olive oil and don’t use butter. Dear Reader: Congratulations on your initial success. A weight loss of about one pound per week is average and healthful while on my no-flour, nosugar diet. You can eat popcorn on my diet, DR. PETER but be careful about GOTT what type you choose. Air-popped is the best, because it doesn’t require any fat. But if you choose to pop it in oil, olive is the best. After popping, you can sprinkle on seasonings, such as garlic powder, chili powder or even a little salt. Remember, moderation is key, especially with regard to salt intake. 

Dear Dr. Gott: I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your column. Two years ago, I had been suffering from night sweats owing to perimenopause, and your column advised taking bee pollen. I tried it, and within just a few days, my night sweats all but disappeared. I kept taking the bee pollen (1,000 milligrams daily) for a few months and then stopped, thinking I didn’t need it anymore. Several months passed with no

sweats, but recently they began again, as well as periodic daytime hot flashes. I went back on the bee pollen and, again, after just a few days, I don’t have any more sweating, day or night! I just wanted to pass this on to you and your readers, and to thank you, again, for your wonderful advice. Dear Reader: Thank you for your kind comments. I am happy to have helped. Bee pollen has been used for years. It is touted to cure certain health problems and to be an exceptionally nutritious food. It has undergone years of research, but so far, nothing can be confirmed. However, there is a plethora of anecdotal information about its use and benefits, especially online. Bee pollen is simply pollen that is collected from the bodies of bees. It has vitamins, minerals, protein, fats and carbohydrates and may even contain some bee saliva. Available in many healthfood stores, it can be found as a supplement or in skinsoftening products. Some even claim that it can be beneficial in treating or even curing, asthma, allergies, alcoholism, stomach upset and more, but remember that none of this has been proven scientifically. If you suffer from allergies to pollen, this supplement may cause a serious or even life-threatening reaction, so it is important to talk to your physician before using it. It shouldn’t be used by pregnant or breastfeeding women but other-

wise appears to be safe for short-term use. To provide related information, I am sending you a copy of my Health Report "Menopause." Other readers who would like a copy should send a self-addressed stamped No. 10 envelope and a $2 check or money order payable to Newsletter and mailed to Newsletter, P.O. Box 167, Wickliffe, OH 44092. Be sure to mention the title or print an order form off my website at 

Dear Dr. Gott: Your article on seizures was totally garbled and seriously incorrect in places. I’m an epileptologist. Dear Doctor: I apologize for any errors that may have appeared, but your brief note is not very helpful in explaining how and where I went wrong, if indeed I did. Perhaps next time you want to tell someone he did wrong, you could elaborate just a bit. For my readers, an epileptologist is a neurologist who specializes in epilepsy. 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.

A charity game for fallen heroes BY PHILLIP ALDER United Feature Syndicate

BackStoppers is a nonprofit charity in the Saint Louis area. It provides support and financial assistance to the spouses and children of police officers, firefighters, publicly funded paramedics and EMTs, and volunteer fire protection units who lost their lives performing their duties. On Aug. 29, Bridge Haven Bridge Club in Saint Louis held a pro-am duplicate that raised $3,500 for BackStoppers. I competed in the game and saw several instructive errors, which I will highlight in this week’s columns. You are South, in three diamonds. West leads the heart 10. What would be your plan? The first four calls were

Jay Leno drops by Palin hometown to visit troops ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Late night talk show host Jay Leno dropped by Sarah Palin’s hometown to help open an Air Force Reserve recruiting office. The host of “The Tonight Show” was in Alaska to perform a show Saturday at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson in Anchorage. He also helped cut a ribbon for the opening of an Air Force Reserve recruiting office.

predictable. North was full value for his raise to three diamonds, but he was not strong enough for two no-trump. If South had extra values and was thinking about three notrump, he could cue-bid three

hearts to ask North to bid three no-trump with a heart stopper or two. East judged well not to bid three hearts, because North would have been delighted to double and collect 300. Declarer won the first trick with his heart king, cashed the diamond ace and club ace, ruffed a club in the dummy, and discarded a spade on the heart ace to take 11 tricks. However, South should have tested East at trick one by calling for dummy’s heart jack. If East covers with the queen, then South gets both of his spade losers away on the ace and nine of hearts and wins 12 tricks. Yes, East should not cover, but if you always test your opponents, they will err occasionally. Plus 150 was worth 11 matchpoints out of 23; plus 170 would have gained 15.5.
