Today is Thursday, Jan. 21, the 21st day of 2010. There are 344 days left in the year. This day in history: On Jan. 21, 1910, shortly before 11 a.m., the Great Paris Flood began as the rain-swollen Seine River burst its banks, sending water into the French capital for more than a week. In 1793, during the French Revolution, King Louis XVI, condemned for treason, was executed on the guillotine. In 1858, Felix Maria Zuloaga became president of Mexico upon the ouster of Ignacio Comonfort. In 1861, Jefferson Davis of Mississippi and four other Southerners resigned from the U.S. Senate. In 1915, the first Kiwanis Club was founded, in Detroit. In 1924, Russian revolutionary Vladimir Lenin died at age 53. In 1950, former State Department official Alger Hiss, accused of being part of a Communist spy ring, was found guilty in New York of lying to a grand jury. (Hiss, who always proclaimed his innocence, served less than four years in prison.) George Orwell (Eric Blair), author of “Nineteen Eighty-Four,” died in London at age 46. In 1954, the first atomic submarine, the USS Nautilus, was launched at Groton, Conn. (However, the Nautilus did not make its first nuclear-powered run until nearly a year later.) In 1968, the Battle of Khe Sanh began during the Vietnam War as North Vietnamese forces attacked a U.S. Marine base.

being “sad� and “suicidal� and a message that reads “death will come shortly for the next person who messes with me in the next week.� According to Harnett County Sheriff Larry Rollins, Wheeler was an eighth-grader who lived with his parents in the Anderson Creek community. The 13-year-old is reported to have shot Deputy S. Assman in the leg around 2:30 a.m. Tuesday near a convenience store at the intersection of N.C. 87 and Nursery Road in western Harnett County. Assman and Deputy T. Daggett returned fire, killing the boy, Rollins said. According to reports, the deputies approached the boy — who they’d seen walking in the area earlier in the night — as he sat on an embankment outside the gas station. Rollins said the boy had two knapsacks, which the deputies began to look through. When the deputies opened the second bag, they found a pistol and immediately told the boy to put his hands up. “At that point the suspect pulled a 9mm handgun from the waistband of his pants and began firing,� Rollins said Tuesday at a press conference. After the deputies returned fire, the boy was

A crisis team was sent to Overhills Middle School to help students deal with the death. The mood at the school was somber, said Patricia Harmon-Lewis, spokeswoman for the Harnett County schools. “We try to have as normal a day as possible,â€? she said. An automated phone message was sent about 6:30 p.m. Tuesday to students’ parents to let them know what had happened, she said. “Once that was done, our crisis team met and that was at place this morning at the school,â€? Harmon-Lewis said. Rollins said Tuesday the deputies never thought the suspect was a child. Assman was treated at Cape Fear Hospital and released.

Sebren survives despite meltdown By KATELYN HOLSHOUSER Herald Correspondent


anford’s Migdalia Sebren moved on to Week 4 of NBC’s “The Biggest Loserâ€? Tuesday night, but not before threatening to quit the show. Sebren suffered an emotional break down and stormed out after a heated confrontation with trainer Jillian Michaels. While Sebren and her mother, Miggy Cancel, had a great start — Week 1, they won immunity; Week 2, they lost the highest amount of weight — a twist in Week 3 almost proved to be too much. This week, players were challenged with a “Student-Teacher Week.â€? Team members were assigned the role of “teacherâ€? or “student,â€? with the “teacherâ€? acting as the team trainer, coaching the “student.â€? The added pressures of the twist caused Sebren to become closed off and separate herself from the other contestants. In an effort to get Sebren to connect emotionally with the challenge of losing weight, trainer Jillian Michaels tried to break Sebren’s hard exterior, telling her it’s OK to cry and that tears are a sign of strength, not weakness. “Your feelings exist for a reason ‌ they are meant to be felt and expressed,â€? Michaels said. When Sebren still wouldn’t open up and talk about her feelings, Michaels started to question Sebren about her family’s health. “She’s going to become like you,â€? Michaels said about Sebren’s daughter.

Back at the dormitories, she talked to her mother and explained she felt Michaels was attacking her parenting skills. But trainer Bob Harper convinced Sebren to remain in the competition. “I’m here to help you. Our job is not done.

We have the ban; now it’s time to enforce it Winston-Salem Journal


orth Carolina’s ban on smoking in bars and restaurants is now the law. It must be enforced. Many of the state’s hookah bars say that the law doesn’t cover them, while hundreds of complaints have flowed into state health offices about alleged smoking violations since the law went into effect on Jan. 2. In a laborious effort, the General Assembly passed North Carolina’s bar and restaurant smoking ban last spring. Protecting the health of patrons and workers was

the main argument for the bill’s passage. The law was a compromise among legislators who wanted a strict and total ban and those who fought to weaken it. In the end, the ban is pretty straightforward — no smoking in bars and restaurants. Citing specific statutory language, hookah-bar owners, as the Journal recently reported, say that the law doesn’t cover them. Patrons in hookah bars smoke a wet concoction of tobacco and other ingredients, usually molasses or honey. The mix is heated and smoke is filtered through a

water pipe. Technically, the tobacco is not burned. Last spring, the legislature considered and dropped a specific exclusion for hookah bars. Now the courts may have to decide if this form of smoking is covered by the statute. Once the legislature reconvenes in May, it should fix the statute and clarify the law. Hookah bars should either be in or out. Private clubs and cigar bars are excluded from the law, an exemption that makes the law appear to be unfair to hookah bars. The Wilmington Star-News recently reported that state

health offices were receiving complaints about noncompliance with the law. Bars will be given two written warnings and then fined $200 for each day they do not comply with the law. Individuals who refuse to stop smoking after being asked to do so by management can be fined as much as $50. State officials stress that a complaint is not proof of a violation, but it is very likely that some smokers and bars are simply defying the law. Such stubbornness is not unusual. But for both health and business reasons, this obstinacy must be stopped. Not only are the lawbreakers

harming the health of others in the establishment, but they are also giving that bar or restaurant an unfair advantage. The law must treat all of these covered businesses equally. Over time, we have no doubt that the great majority of restaurant and bar patrons — including some smokers — will decide that they prefer the clean air of a smoke-free environment. Many already have. But there will always be a few who want to assert their smoke into the lungs of others. That’s now against the law, and the law must be enforced.

The price isn’t right


ometimes state government has that feel of a recurring dream. At some point, it dawns on you that you’ve been here before. Done this. Seen that. So it was reading through a state audit of an electronic system of a state purchasing up in 2001. This “e-procurement” system was supposed to help streamline state government’s buying of goods and services, improve access to state business for interested vendors, and do it without cost to taxpayers. Some vendors say the system’s chief accomplishment is increasing the cost of goods by 1.75 percent, the transaction fee rate charged to vendors using the service. The audit, issued in late December, found problems. It questioned costs, the contract with the software company that oversees the system, and even whether a conflict of interest existed in the system’s creation. The conflict lay in the fact that the current owner of the software system, Accenture, is the same firm that analyzed the feasibility of e-procurement for the state. At the time, Accenture said that the 1.75 percent transaction fees would cover the state’s costs. But when the contract was negotiated to run the system, the company was given revenue guarantees beyond collection of the fees. If the fees didn’t total certain amounts, the state would make up the difference. And guess what happened from the very start of the system’s implementation? Yep, the fees collected came up short of the baseline amounts set in the contract. In an economic slump and dealing with a budget crisis, the state’s response was to renegotiate the contract to allow Accenture to collect transaction fees for 10 years instead of four years. The result is that the company has collected $103 million as of last summer. The good news is that, since this contract was negotiated, the state now runs major information technology projects through its Office of Information Technology Services to try to avoid botched projects. That office offers some technical expertise to try to avoid problems before they start. Still, the purchasing system is reminiscent of any number of fouled up state contracts negotiated over the years which ended up putting taxpayers at a disadvantage. ... Having a single state office with expertise in technology will help avoid some of these debacles in the future. But policymakers need to go a step further. The state needs more legal expertise too. Too often as these contracts are negotiated, the state is represented by a lawyer with little experience in major contract negotiations. You can be sure the companies aren’t.

We often forget that children are the future of America, and our apathy and ignorance often results into something like what recently happened to the 13-year-old who was killed after shooting at a deputy. Misguided children, like that boy, are now turning (or will eventually turn) to crime and drugs to find satisfaction in their lives. Parents are too busy providing material things like television and video games, thinking these material possessions will make them content. It is true that these things cause a short-term thrill in children, but will it make them truly happy? They are just learning that the world is all about how much one has and how privileged one is. Leaders in churches everywhere should organize activities and events that would encourage parents to bring their children to worship. This is a great alternative to preaching to the same group of people week after week or letting parents “force” their children to come to church, only to have them rebel against it later. These activities can include games, prizes and singing. Such events should occur more often than a couple of times a year like most churches do for Christmas and Easter only. Church activities should entertain children, but with the sole purpose to lead them to God. “Serving God” does not apply only to worshipping in a four-walled building. The need to serve Him is found outside of our comfort zone. Jesus said in Luke 18:16, “Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.” Do not hinder your children from Him. If we allow our children to learn about God, He will bless our neighborhoods, our cities, and our nation. JUANA GUILLEN Sanford

‘Local’ Haiti coverage not needed To the Editor: Is local coverage of Haiti appropriate? With the more than ample coverage of the Haitian disaster by national news organizations, what can possibly justify local news operations sending teams down to report their perspectives? Please, direct your finances to funding legitimate relief programs and highlighting efforts by local organizations to send assistance. Haiti doesn’t need to have its alltoo-inadequate resources, and the fine work being done by North Carolina-based soldiers and Marines, further drained by diversions to support prima donna reporters and their news crews.

Margaret McKeever

MONACA, Pa. — Margaret A. McKeever, 83, of Monaca and Center Twp. Pa., died Monday (1/11/10) at Rochester Manor in Rochester, Pa. Born Oct. 20, 1926 in Sanford, she was one of 12 children of the late Henry Kelly and Lessie Spivey. She was united in marriage to Ralph W. McKeever on Nov 24, 1944 in Portsmouth, Va. She was preceded in death by a grandson, Robbie Mintz and five siblings. She was a longtime resident of Monaca and a past president of the Monaca PTA. She was employed as a seamstress with the former Jos. Horne Department Store at the Beaver Valley Mall. She was also a member of the First Presbyterian Church of Rochester where she served for many years as a Sunday school teacher. She is survived by her children, Margaret Ann “Peggy” Mintz and husband Robert of Baltimore, Md., Ralph R. McKeever and wife Shawna of Wheeling, W.Va. and Robert Kelly McKeever and wife Cheryl of Seven Fields, Pa.; four grandchildren, one greatgrandchild and siblings, Bernice Nicholson, Genelle McDowell and husband J.D., Catherine Brett and husband Mills, Frank Morris, Mac Morris and wife Judy and Louis Morris and wife Barbara. The funeral service will be conducted at 10 a.m. today at Simpson Funeral and Cremation Services with the Rev. Lee Bittner officiating. Entombment will follow in Sylvania Hills Mausoleum.

funded and how much funding they receive. That means most if not all of the city’s known capital needs are included in the document. Although it’s not a binding plan, the document does provide a glimpse of anticipated upgrades to services the city offers as growth moves forward. Some of the projects listed in the plan — such as an expansion to the city’s wastewater treatment plant — have already received funding under the current year budget and are seen as essential. Others, like the replacement of a force main line from the Gum Fork Lift Station near the Lee County Industrial Park or the installation of sidewalks in various parts of the city, are subject to more scrutiny from the council and economic conditions. City Public Works Director Vic Czar presented the plan to the council

n EXPANSION OF THE WASTEWATER TREATMENT PLANT An expansion to the plant on Iron Furnace Road needs more than $68 million in funding through fiscal year 2012-13 in order to increase capacity from 6.8 million gallons per day to 12 million gallons per day. The CIP indicates that the expansion will “ensure capacity for industrial and residential growth for 20 years.” After 20 years, city leaders have said the city is likely to need another plant to ensure capacity for future growth. The current fiscal year contains $12.6 million in funding for the project. The CIP recommends $22.4 million in funding in fiscal years 2010-11 and 2011-12, as well as more lina, you’re cutting edge in the country,” he said. Eighth grader Joshua Watson, 13, of Sanford said he’s anxious to work with the laptop. “It takes us to new learning. Maybe we won’t have to hold as many books,” he said. Bryan said the students will begin using the laptops immediately in their core curriculum classes. Cynthia Wicker, sixth grade math and science teacher at SanLee, said the laptops will be a great tool for the classroom. “It can’t replace the teacher but it can certainly make my lessons more interesting and more interactive,” she said. She currently has ten computers in her classroom so her students are familiar with class computer use. “But now it just opens more doors for everyone,” she said of the laptop initiative. “I’ve already told them they’ll have to help me with what they’d like to be doing with these

throughout this entire process,” he added. He told the students they were “purposely selected because we believe you will lead the way in Lee County.” “What I really want you to do is have fun with learning,” Moss said. Andy Bryan, assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction, told the students they were at the forefront of the technology education movement. “Not only are you cutting edge in North Caro-

than $11.2 million in fiscal year 2012-23. n TWO NEW FIRE STATIONS Anticipated growth means the city is likely to need a fourth and a fifth fire station in coming years, as the city’s three current stations increasingly see slower response times to areas on the edges of town. The CIP contains $1.5 million in funding for a proposed Number 4 station between fiscal year 2010-11 and 2012-13 and more than $1.7 million in funding for a proposed Number 5 station in fiscal years 2012-13 and 201314. For Number 4, the CIP recommends that the station be placed “in the southern area of the city where the current trend of growth is seeing increases in commercial and residential development.” The CIP indicates that “a study to determine the optimal location of (Number 5) will be conducted in the future.”

computers.” Bob Heuts, director of Lee County Economic Development Corp., was on hand to witness the laptop roll out. “I want to congratulate the school system for the opportunity they’ve provided for the kids,” he said. “These kids will be better prepared for our workforce, whether that’s here in Lee County or elsewhere.” After the first day, East Lee Principal Tom Harvley-Felder could safely say that the laptops are a hit with students. “They’ve been excited all day. They’ve been exploring,” he said. “Some of them found almost immediately that there were sites they couldn’t go to.” A few computers had problems but the technology facilitators will have them working and back to students by Monday, when classes resume, Harvley-Felder said. “I think it went extremely well and reflected an enormous amount of logistical preparation on the part of the tech crew,” he said.

n GREENWAY TRAIL The CIP recommends $1.5 million in annual funding for the Endor Iron Furnace Greenway Trail between the current fiscal year and 2013-14, as well as $22.5 million in funding over subsequent years. Work is set to begin on the first portion of the trail, which will begin at Kiwanis Park on Carbonton Road and stretch to U.S. 421 on the north side of Sanford, later in January. The ultimate plan is for the trail to stretch to the Endor Iron Furnace near Cumnock and then back into the center of town, making it likely that Lee County will have to be involved at some stages. n SIDEWALK INSTALLATION Following a study which indicates that 21,760 linear feet of sidewalk needs to be added to various locations across the city in order to make Sanford more “pedestrian friendly,” the CIP recommends $1 million in funding during fiscal year 2012-13 for such work.

The work would include filling in missing sections of sidewalk, repairs to areas in disrepair, and the installation of sidewalks in neighborhoods that don’t have them. n CITY HALL WORK, NEW PUBLIC SAFETY FACILITY The CIP recommends $2.5 million in funding during fiscal year 2013-14 for renovations to City Hall, which was installed in 1981. “Other than routine maintenance, no improvements have been performed on the building,” the report states. One possible method of expansion at City Hall is to have city staff move into the Sanford Police Department, which currently occupies the bottom story of the facility. Combined with space issues at the police department, the CIP recommends more than $12 million between the current fiscal year and 2012-13 for a new public safety facility. Possible locations for such a facility haven’t been discussed.

POLICE BEAT Local drug teams make arrests SANFORD — Two joint operations by drug agents with the Lee County Sheriff’s Office and the Sanford Police Department led to the seizure of marijuana and prescription drugs and two arrests. Charlie Kenard Bland, 45, of 1209 Freeman Drive was charged Tuesday with maintaining a dwelling for drugs after agents raided his house and found roughly half a pound of marijuana, a .45 caliber handgun and $1,460 in cash. Agents are seeking a second suspect in the case. Bland was placed in Lee County Jail under $1,000 secured bond. Wednesday, agents charged Christopher Steven Burch, 28, of 618 Matthews St. with trafficking opium, possession with intent to sell marijuana, maintaining a dwelling for drugs, possession of a schedule III controlled substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia. The arrest followed a raid at Burch’s house in which

agents found 2.75 ounces of marijuana, 51 dosage units of Percocet, one dosage unit of hydrocodone, and a stolen laptop computer. Burch was placed in the Lee County Jail under $250,000 secured bond. Members of the Broadway Police Department also assisted with the investigation. — by Gordon Anderson

SANFORD n Gregory Ray Williams, 37, of 136 E. Chisholm St. was charged Tuesday with larceny. n Derrick Brandon Cox, 22, of 226 Talley Ave. was charged Tuesday with failure to appear. n Cordero La Paul Rollins, 21, of 423 Charlotte Ave. was charged Tuesday with attempted breaking and entering a building. n Sandra Lambeth Worthy, 48, was arrested Friday at 811 King St. on charges of forgery of notes, checks or securities and failure to return rental property with purchase options.

STATE BRIEFS Fayetteville mayor wants change to police rape policy FAYETTEVILLE (AP) — After Fayetteville police decided not to warn the public about a string of possibly related rapes, the mayor has ordered them to change their policy. Fayetteville Mayor Tony Chavonne ordered City Manager Dale Iman to change it Tuesday, multiple media organizations reported. Under the policy, police don’t report sexual assaults unless the information is specifically requested. “This council wants that policy changed,” Chavonne told Iman during a special council meeting Tuesday night. At least nine women in the Fayetteville area — including one in Hope Mills and one at a Fort Bragg neighborhood — have reported since June that they were attacked by a man who broke into their homes, according to police. Police linked at least two attacks in November to the same man as early as Dec. 2, The Fayetteville Observer reported Sunday. Detectives suspected by late December that the attacks might be linked but needed to further analyze the cases before going public on Jan. 11, Iman said. The mayor’s order broke a stalemate between impatient City Council members and the city manager, who had defended police handling of the cases.

N.C.-born airman killed in Afghanistan explosion WASHINGTON (AP) — Military officials say a North Carolina-born airman has been killed in Afghanistan. The Department of Defense reported Wednesday that 29-year-old Tech. Sgt. Adam K. Ginett of Knightdale, N.C., died Jan. 19 near Kandahar Air Field, Afghanistan, of wounds suffered from an improvised explosive device. No further details were available. Ginett was assigned to the 31st Civil Engineer Squadron, Aviano Air Base, Italy.

Moldova PM visits, signs agreement

with the federal Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority could be worth up to nearly $44 million. The agency is responsible for developing medical responses to chemical, biological and nuclear attacks. Duke medical professor John Chute says his job will be to find a fast and accurate test that can quickly screen thousands of people. Duke is one of nine universities and companies awarded contracts to find tests and devices to determine human radiation levels. The contracts total up to $400 million over five years.

RALEIGH (AP) — The prime minister of Moldova visited North Carolina on Wednesday to extend its formal relationship with the state, with the leader of the former Soviet republic acknowledging the country’s desire for outside help as it seeks reform. Prime Minister Vladimir Filat joined Lt. Gov. Walter Dalton in a signing ceremony for a third fiveyear bilateral agreement between the two governments. “The Republic of Moldova is comprised of citizens that want to live freely in a democratic society and have a prosperous life,” Filat said through an interpreter in the Senate chamber of the Legislative Building in Raleigh. “In order to

Battery component maker to add nearly 300 jobs CONCORD (AP) — A Charlotte-based maker of parts for lithium batteries plans to expand in North Carolina as it gears up production for the electric vehicle market. Celgard LLC said Wednesday it plans to add about 80 jobs to the 390 workers at its Charlotte campus. The company also plans a plant in Concord that will employ about 210 people by 2015. The company plans to invest about $90 million over the next five years. Celgard’s North Carolina expansion plans have enjoyed a big boost from state and local taxpayers. The company was selected last summer for $49 million in federal funds aimed at stimulating the next generation of electricpowered vehicles. The company could collect a state grant of up to $4.6 million if it creates the promised jobs and keeps them for 11 years.

achieve these objectives the Republic of Moldova and its citizens need friends.” The partnership agreement formalizes exchanges and other mutual assistance between the two governments through areas such as commerce and education. Moldova, a landlocked country of 4.3 million people bordered by the Ukraine and Romania, became a democratic republic after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Filat became prime minister in September as the leader of a coalition of pro-Western parties that won a majority in Parliament and ended eight years of Communist Party rule. The coalition has said it would work to reform markets, guaran-

tee media freedom and make the judicial system more independent. “We have undergone a difficult period of time,” Filat said, but added that the link with North Carolina, which date backs to the mid-1990s, “is a relevant example of how these type of bonds and relationships should be built.” The North Carolina National Guard participates with Moldova in exchanges between their military and civil personnel to teach best practices with engineering and disaster relief response, guard spokesman Maj. Matt Handley said. In September, dentists from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill joined dentists in Moldova to provide free


Cop accused of sexual assault during response CHARLOTTE (AP) — A sixth woman has accused a fired police officer of sexually assaulting women while in uniform, this time after the officer responded to a call for help. A grand jury on Tuesday indicted Marcus Jackson on 11 charges including sexual battery, felonious restraint, and extortion stemming from allegations by the first three women to come forward. Jackson, 26, was being held Wednesday in the Mecklenburg County jail on $423,000 bond. A public defender working on Jackson’s case did not respond to a phone message and e-mail seeking comment. The Charlotte-Mecklen-

burg Police Department fired Jackson on Dec. 30 after two women said they were assaulted after traffic stops. Jackson was hired in September 2008 and had been on patrol in Charlotte’s Eastway division since May. Jackson is accused of threatening to arrest a 17year-old motorist he had pulled over if she did not perform a sex act. Police said the other women claimed they were fondled. The domestic violence call for help came Nov. 29, but the woman’s allegations against Jackson weren’t reported to police until Jan.

8 after other women had come forward, police said Tuesday. “In this instance, Jackson again allegedly used his authority as a police officer to unlawfully fondle another victim,” police said in a statement. “We have systematically contacted persons who had contact with Jackson to determine if any misconduct occurred. No new cases have arisen from these contacts.” The grand jury also issued a request for prosecutors to investigate the allegations made by the three remaining women whose allegations haven’t resulted

Jackson should not have been hired after the second domestic violence incident in 2005, Police Chief Rodney Monroe said. Jackson’s girlfriend accused him of hitting her in the head and slapping her. Police said they mistakenly thought criminal background checks would also reveal civil restraining orders from a job candidate’s past.

N.C. Senate leader denies involvement in pier work RALEIGH (AP) — Senate leader Marc Basnight says he had nothing to do with a family company helping rebuild a pier on the North Carolina Outer Banks. Basnight Construction got subcontract work on turning the old Jennette’s Pier in Nags Head into a combination pier and museum operated by the North Carolina Aquarium Society. Marc Basnight backed a House bill last year that would pay for the $25 million project from aquarium admission fees and outside sources. Basnight was the company’s president for 30-plus years but told reporters Wednesday he wasn’t involved for at least a decade and resigned last summer when he found out his cousin was interested in pier work. Basnight said he didn’t want the perception that he would profit from the project.

dental care to children at a boarding school there. North Carolina medical leaders also have worked with Moldovans in improving their hospice care programs, Secretary of State Elaine Marshall said. “This is a new surge of energy” for the arrangement, said Marshall, who has visited Moldova at least five times. “It’s just a beautiful partnership with people helping people.” Filat, whose visit to the Legislative Building was marked Friday by high security, is in the United States this week. He’ll meet U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Friday to accept a $262 million grant designed to improve the country’s economy.

Obama, Dems consider their options

WASHINGTON (AP) — Chastened by the Democratic Senate loss in Massachusetts, President Barack Obama and congressional allies signaled Wednesday they may try to scale back his sweeping health care overhaul in an effort to at least keep parts of it alive. A simpler, less ambitious bill emerged as an alternative only hours after the loss of the party’s crucial 60th Senate seat forced the Democrats to slow their all-out drive to pass Obama’s signature legislation despite fierce Republican opposition. The White House is still hoping the House can pass the Senate bill in a quick strike, but Democrats are now considering other options. No decisions have been made, lawmakers said, but they laid out a new approach that could still include these provisions: limiting the ability of insurance companies to deny coverage to people with medical problems, allowing young adults to stay on their parents’ policies, helping small businesses and low-income people pay premiums and changing Medicare to encourage payment for quality care instead of sheer volume of services. The goal of trying to cover nearly all Americans would be put off

Obama urged lawmakers not to try to jam a bill through, but scale the proposal down to what he called “those elements of the package that people agree on.� “We know that we need insurance reform, that the health insurance companies are taking advantage of people,� the president said in an interview with ABC News. “We know that we have to have some form of cost containment because if we don’t then our budgets are going to blow up. And we know that small businesses are going to need help.� One potential Republican convert for health care legislation remained an enigma. Sen. Olympia Snowe of Maine, who has been in regular contact

with Obama, roundly criticized the Democrats’ hard push to pass their bill. But she would not rule out voting for something in the end. Asked if the Democratic bills are dead, Snowe responded: “I never say anything is dead, but clearly I think they have to revisit the entire issue.� Some Democrats weren’t ready for that, despite the president’s new words. One option, still alive and stirring strong emotions, called for the House to quickly pass the Senate version of the broader bill — simply accepting it and therefore bypassing the Senate problem created by the loss of the Massachusetts seat to Republican Scott Brown. But that appeared to be losing favor.

BOSTON (AP) — The Republican who will take over the late Edward Kennedy’s Senate seat says at a news conference that he plans to head to Washington on Thursday. Scott Brown said earlier Wednesday that he doesn’t expect any problems being seated after defeating Democrat Martha Coakley. He says he has spoken with Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick and Sen. John Kerry. He could not say precisely when the change would occur. The timing is important because Brown will give Senate Republicans the 41st vote they need to sustain a filibuster. And that could block President Barack Obama from pushing his health care bill through the chamber.

“That’s a bitter pill for the House to swallow,� said the No. 2 Senate Democrat, Dick Durbin of Illinois. “Full speed ahead is off the table,� said Rep. Earl Pomeroy, a moderate Democrat from North Dakota. “We are still very much in the exercise of drawing meaning from the public disquiet.�

Home construction falls; wholesale prices edge up

Democrats propose $1.9T increase in debt limit

WASHINGTON (AP) — The housing market remains a significant risk to the economy, data Wednesday showed, as bad weather across much of the country hammered the construction industry. Along with icy storms, the real estate recovery is facing man-made headwinds. On Wednesday, the government said buyers will face higher fees and tougher standards for home loans backed by the Federal Housing Administration, a popular source of loans for first-time buyers. Unemployment is expected to remain high throughout the year, which will drive the foreclosure rate to new records. Construction of new homes and apartments fell 4 percent in December to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 557,000 from an upwardly revised 580,000 in November, the Commerce Department said.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Democrats have proposed permitting the federal government to borrow an additional $1.9 trillion to pay its bills. That would permit the national debt to reach $14.3 trillion. The unpopular legislation is needed to allow the federal government to issue bonds to fund programs and prevent a first-time default on obligations. The record increase in the so-called debt limit is required because the budget deficit has spiraled out of control in the wake of a recession that cut tax revenues, the Wall Street bailout, and increased spending by the Democratic-controlled Congress.

Finger amputations prompt stroller recall WASHINGTON (AP) — About 1.5 million Graco strollers sold at Wal-Mart, Target and other major retailers are being recalled after some children’s fingertips were amputated by hinges on the products. The recall by Graco Children’s Products Inc. includes certain model numbers of its Passage, Alano and Spree Strollers and Travel Systems. The Atlanta company received seven reports of children placing their fingers in a stroller’s canopy hinge as the canopy was being opened or closed. Five children had their fingertips severed and two children received cuts on their fingertips. The strollers were made in China by Graco and sold at AAFES, Burlington Coat Factory, Babies R Us, Toys R Us, Kmart, Fred Meyer, Meijer, Navy Exchange, Sears, Target, Wal-Mart and other retailers nationwide from October 2004 to December 2009.

Poll: Nearly 1 in 5 may not fill out census form WASHINGTON (AP) — With the launch of the decennial census just weeks away, nearly 1 in 5 people may not participate in the high-stakes head count, citing mostly a lack of interest but also a broader distrust of government. A poll released Wednesday by the Pew Research Center highlights the challenges as the Census Bureau prepares to begin its tally in March. The findings come as some groups question whether the agency’s $300 million outreach effort is doing enough to reach hard-to-count communities. Overall, 90 percent of those surveyed called the population count “very important� or “somewhat important� for the country.

Mom, husband: Drugs didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t kill her

LOS ANGELES (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A month after Brittany Murphyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mysterious death, her mother and husband say they are convinced the actress died of natural causes, not drugs or an eating disorder. In an interview with The Associated Press on Tuesday, Sharon Murphy and Simon Monjack said that Murphy did not use drugs or alcohol and that they are awaiting a determination from coronerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s officials that will end speculation prescription medicine caused Murphyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death on Dec. 20 at age 32. Monjack said some of the prescription medications found in the coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hollywood Hills home belonged to him. Murphy had mitral valve prolapse, a common condition where a heart valve does not properly close, but doctors said the actress â&#x20AC;&#x153;would live a long and healthy life,â&#x20AC;? Monjack said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She had a fear of dying,â&#x20AC;? Sharon Murphy said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She would not take too much caffeine. She wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even have a glass of champagne on New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. She was just high on life, and people see that as something else I guess.â&#x20AC;? Murphy, the star of varied films such as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Clueless,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;8 Mile,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sin Cityâ&#x20AC;? and the television

At the service, Monjack told mourners that the actress was his best friend and soul mate, sentiments he repeated during the Tuesday interview. Monjack, who married Murphy in 2007, said police and coronerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s officials have not contacted the family to say his wifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death was from anything other than natural causes. Authorities continue to investigate her death but do not suspect foul play.

An autopsy was inconclusive and coronerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s officials are awaiting the results of toxicology and tissue tests before determining what killed the actress. Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter said Tuesday that he had not seen Murphyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s autopsy report, but the condition of her heart would be looked at before her cause of death is determined. Sharon Murphy described the wait for answers as torture. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wish we knew,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She was alive one

minute and she was dead the next,â&#x20AC;? Monjack said. The pair worked frantically to save Murphyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life the morning she died, as revealed in a heartwrenching 911 call where Sharon Murphy implores, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Brittany, please come back!â&#x20AC;? as Monjack performs CPR. Sharon Murphy said she has largely ignored tabloid reports that have suggested her daughter abused drugs or had an eating disorder. She said her daughter had always been petite and ate often, but burned it off with an active lifestyle. Monjack, who has read some of the reports, called them lies based on anonymous sources who werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t close to Brittany Murphy or him. He said he is considering suing some British outlets for â&#x20AC;&#x153;outright fabrications.â&#x20AC;? He said the rumors of her drug use were unfounded and had cost his wife roles in some major films. He said he is also considering whether to sue the Los Angeles County Coronerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department over an initial report that was obtained by celebrity Web site, which listed several prescription medications found in Murphyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home. Monjack said most of the medicines listed in the report were his.

Lawyer: Infection puts Charlie Sheenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife in ICU LOS ANGELES (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Charlie Sheenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife, Brooke, was in a hospital intensive care unit Wednesday with a high fever and an infection following oral surgery, her lawyer said. Sheen Attorney Yale Galanter said Brooke Sheen was running a fever of 105 degrees when she was taken to Sherman Oaks Hospital. She had already obtained a postponement of a hearing in the Colorado domestic violence case against her actor husband because she was to undergo the surgery. Galanter, who was reached in Aspen, Colo., said the hearing that had been rescheduled for Friday will have to be postponed again. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She has an infection as the result of oral surgery earlier in the week,â&#x20AC;? said Galanter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re concerned and trying to get it under control.â&#x20AC;? Both of the Sheens had been expected to attend the hearing in Aspen, where police were called to their home on Christmas Day. Sheen and his wife had been expected to ask Pitkin County District Court Judge James Boyd to throw out or revise a protection order that prevents the couple from contacting each other. Such protection orders are

Judge: Gun stays as evidence in Ja Ruleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s NYC case NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Rapper Ja Rule has lost a bid to keep a loaded gun found in his luxury car from being used against him in a New York weapons-possession case. A judge said â&#x20AC;&#x153;noâ&#x20AC;? Wednesday to the argument by the platinumselling artistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ja Rule that the

gun was found during an unjustified police stop of his Maybach sports car after a July 2007 concert. Prosecutors say the stop was warranted because the car had no insurance and a suspended registration. The judge did throw out another piece of evidence: the rapperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s statement to police that he had a bit of marijuana in his pocket. He isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t charged with drug possession. Ja Rule, whose real name is Jeffrey Atkins, has pleaded not guilty. The 33-year-old faces up to four years in prison if convicted.

Winehouse gets discharge for assault

LONDON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Amy Winehouse admits it went beyond seasonal spirit. The soul diva pleaded guilty Wednesday to assaulting a theater manager who asked her to leave a family Christmas show starring Mickey Rooney because sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d had too much to drink. The singer, Winehouse whose scrapes with the law often overshadow her music, was given a fine and a warning to stay out of trouble by a judge who praised her for trying to clean up her act. District Judge Peter Crabtree ordered Winehouse to pay her victim 185 pounds ($300) in costs and compensation, and handed down a conditional discharge, meaning the singer will avoid further punishment as long as she does not commit any more offenses for two years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(That) may be harder than a fine, because you have now got to stay on the straight and narrow for the next two years,â&#x20AC;? the judge said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you commit another offense youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be hit hard and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be hit twice,â&#x20AC;? he said. ** Planet 51: PG (10:20), 12:20, 5:25 ** Planet 51: PG (10:20), 12:20, 5:25

NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Times says it will charge readers for full access to its Web site starting in 2011, a risky move aimed at increasing online revenue without driving away advertisers that want the biggest possible audience. The potential pitfalls have made most other major newspapers hesitant to take a similar step. But after months of deliberation, the Times said Wednesday that it will use a metered system, allowing free access to a certain number of articles each month and then charging users for additional content. The Times did not disclose how many articles would be available for free each month or what it would charge to read more. Subscribers to the printed version of the Times would still have free access to the Web site. It would not be the first time the newspaper has asked readers to pay for its online articles.

Teen held in afternoon rape along busy Ohio street TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — A 15-year-old boy has been charged in Ohio in the rape of a woman along a street in broad daylight as cars drove past. Toledo police say that at least four drivers saw the attack Tuesday afternoon and called authorities. Police say one driver slowed down and beeped

the car horn; another turned around to return to the scene and saw a person running away. Sgt. Sam Harris says he doesn’t blame drivers for not stopping because they might not have known they were seeing a rape. Police say the woman had a learning disability but did not elaborate on its seriousness. Authorities arrested the teen at his home early Wednesday. He was charged with delinquency in connection with rape and robbery and could face trial as an adult.

Federal worker sues for same-sex spouse benefits SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A federal employee in California is suing the Obama administration to force it to provide health benefits to her same-sex spouse. The U.S. Office of Personnel Management told Karen Golinski that it was refusing to extend benefits to her wife because federal law prohibits the government from recognizing gay marriage. The office made its decision over the objections of 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Chief Judge Alex Kozinski, who called the move illegal discrimination. Golinski is a lawyer for the 9th Circuit in San Francisco. The Office of Personnel Management says the Justice Department told it to ignore the judge’s ruling because it went against the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act.

Hassan Nasreddine said. Hundreds of Canadian soldiers and sailors were deploying to that town and to Jacmel on the south coast to support relief efforts, and the Haitian government sent a plane and an overland team to assess needs in Petit-Goave, a seaside town 10 miles (15 kilometers) farther west from Leogane that was the epicenter of Wednesday’s aftershock. The death toll was estimated at 200,000, according to Haitian government figures relayed by the European Commission, with 80,000 buried in mass graves. The commission raised its estimate of homeless to 2 million, from 1.5 million, and said 250,000 people needed urgent aid. Many badly injured Haitians still awaited lifesaving surgery. “It is like working in a war situation,” said Rosa Crestani of Doctors Without Borders at the Choscal Hospital. “We don’t have any morphine to manage pain for our patients.” The damaged hospitals and emergency medical centers set up in Port-auPrince needed surgeons, fuel for generators, oxygen and countless other kinds of medical supplies, aid groups said. Dr. Evan Lyon, of the U.S.-based Partners in Health, messaged from the central University Hospital that the facility was within 24 hours of running out of key supplies.

On Port-au-Prince’s beaches, more than 20,000 people looked for boats to carry them down the coast, the local Signal FM radio reported. But the desperation may actually be deeper outside the capital, closer to last week’s quake epicenter. “We’re waiting for food, for water, for anything,” Emmanuel Doris-Cherie, 32, said in Leogane, 25 miles (40 kilometers) southwest of Port-auPrince.

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) — A frightening new aftershock Wednesday forced more earthquake survivors to live on the capital’s streets or sent them fleeing to perhaps even worse conditions in the countryside. A flotilla of rescue vessels, meanwhile, led by the U.S. hospital ship Comfort, converged on the capital. They are helping fill gaps in still lagging global efforts to bring water, food and medical help to hundreds of thousands of people who are surviving in makeshift tents or simply on blankets or plastic sheets under the tropical sun. The strongest tremor since Haiti’s cataclysmic Jan. 12 earthquake struck at 6:03 a.m., just before sunrise while many were still sleeping. From the teeming plaza near the collapsed presidential palace to a hillside tent city, the 5.9-magnitude aftershock lasted only seconds but panicked thousands of Haitians. “Jesus!” they cried as rubble tumbled and dust

STAAL NAMED HURRICANES’ CAPTAIN RALEIGH (AP) — Eric Staal is taking over as captain of the Carolina Hurricanes. The team said Wednesday that the 25-year-old All-Star center has replaced veteran Rod Brind’Amour as team captain. General manager Jim Rutherford says the switch comes as part of the team’s rebuilding process because “Eric is the player around whom the team will be structured.” The Hurricanes, who reached the Eastern Conference finals last season, entered Wednesday night’s games with an NHLworst 35 points. Brind’Amour had been the captain since 2005 and led the team to its only Stanley Cup in 2006. Rutherford says the 39year-old will take Staal’s spot as an alternate captain and will continue to hold a leadership role.

CHAPEL HILL (AP) — Freshman C.J. Harris scored a career-high 20 points and Wake Forest beat No. 24 North Carolina 82-69 on Wednesday night to send the Tar Heels to their first three-game losing streak under coach Roy Williams. Ishmael Smith had 20

points, and Al-Farouq Aminu added 13 points and 11 rebounds for the Demon Deacons (13-4, 3-2 Atlantic Coast Conference). They hit 56 percent of their 3-pointers and were 7 of 8 from long range in the second half of their first victory in Chapel Hill since 2003. Will Graves scored 16 points to lead the Tar Heels (12-7, 1-3). The defending national champions, who have dropped four of five, were playing their first game since falling to No. 24 — their lowest ranking in The Associated Press Top 25 since 2006.

Southern rallies by Byrd


CHARLOTTE (AP) — Carolina Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart is undergoing surgery on his troublesome left foot. Stewart posted on his Twitter account early Wednesday that he was having surgery later in the day. It comes after chronic pain in his toe and left Achilles’ tendon kept him out of numerous practices in 2009. He tweaked the injury in the season finale against New Orleans and was knocked out of the game. Stewart played all 16 games and rushed for a team-best 1,133 yards and 10 touchdowns. Stewart and DeAngelo Williams combined to become the first set of teammates since the 1970 NFL-AFL merger to each rush for more than 1,100 yards.

Southern Lee’s Deshawn Bush goes up for a shot as Douglas Byrd tries to block during Wednesday night’s game in Sanford.

SANFORD — Once the third quarter rolled around, the Southern Lee Cavaliers were back in a familiar groove. After a 10-day layoff, the Cavaliers returned to the hardwood and picked up where they left off, getting a careerhigh 30 points from Ace Chalmers in a 70-57 victory over Douglas Byrd in Cape Fear Valley Conference action on Wednesday night. First-place Southern Lee (10-6, 8-0) used a 17-3 run in the third quarter to rally, taking a 43-34 lead. Douglas Byrd trimmed the deficit to four in the fourth quarter, but could get no closer. Josh Mellette added 11 points for Southern Lee while Deshawn Bush had 10 and Darius Gill eight. J.R. Britton led Douglas Byrd with 21 points.

Lady Cavs shake off rust By RYAN SARDA

SANFORD — It wasn’t pretty, but the Southern Lee Lady Cavaliers will take it. The Lady Cavs, fresh off a 10-day layoff, overcame a sluggish first half to defeat Douglas Byrd 47-34 on Wednesday night to improve to 7-8 overall and 2-4 in the Cape Fear Valley Conference. Head coach Donna Taylor says that despite the sloppy play, she was pleased with her team’s physical play and overall effort. “It wasn’t pretty at all,” said Taylor. “We needed a win to boost our confidence a little bit. We did a lot of things that I was pleased with. We were diving on the floor for loose balls, going after steals and we played aggressivele.” Anelia Smith led the Lady Cavaliers in scoring with 18 points. Yasmine Butler had 11 points. Jerraysheya Fox had five

points and snagged down 11 rebounds. The Eagles were led by the duo of Shemilla Suleman and Jasmine Tate. Suleman had a team-high 11 points and Tate had 10 in the loss. Mathematically, the Cavaliers still have a chance to finish in third place in the conference. However, it won’t be easy as they must win out the rest of the way. “We can’t afford to lose to anybody,” said Taylor. “We’re approaching the second half of the conference season and anything can happen.

Amato being treated for cancer RALEIGH (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Former North Carolina State coach and Florida State assistant Chuck Amato will undergo treatment for cancer located on his tonsil. In a statement released by N.C. State, Amato says he was diagnosed in December, but doctors detected it early and expect a full recovery.

Camels face tough road stretch BUIES CREEK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Campbell (11-5, 6-1) faces its most challenging road stretch of the year beginning Thursday at Belmont (7:15 p.m. CST). Riding a 3-game win streak and sitting on top of the Atlantic Sun Conference standings at the latest point in a year since joining the league in 1994-95, the Camels begin

a 3-game span against the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tennessee membership.

Photos purport to show Woods at rehab center

Injured Brady out of Pro Bowl, replaced by Schaub

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Tom Brady has pulled out of the Pro Bowl after a season in which he played with rib and finger injuries. He has been replaced by Matt Schaub of the Houston Texans. The NFL announced the change of AFC backup quarterbacks on Wednesday. Brady and the rest of the New England Patriots had physicals after their 33-14 opening-round playoff loss to Baltimore on Jan. 10. Brady played in all 16 regular-season games and completed 371 of 565 passes for 4,398 yards, 28 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. His completion percentage of 65.7 was seventh in the NFL and his passer rating of 96.2 was ninth.

Shoulder keeps Big Ben out of Pro Bowl

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has turned down a chance to play in the Pro Bowl because of a right shoulder problem that developed late in the season. Roethlisberger was the first alternate for the AFC and would have gone in place of the Patriots’ Tom Brady, who pulled out of the game. Once Roethlisberger turned down the opportunity, Houston’s Matt Schaub was selected. Roethlisberger appeared to have problems with his throwing shoulder during the Steelers’ season-ending game at Miami on Jan. 3. Coach Mike Tomlin later said

he doesn’t think Roethlisberger will require any medical procedures to correct the problem. Roethlisberger, who has won two Super Bowls with Pittsburgh, threw for a teamrecord 4,328 yards this season.

Jets WR Edwards wants to finish career in New York FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — Braylon Edwards hopes to finish his career with the New York Jets amid a published report Wednesday that the team will tender an offer to him after the season. Newsday, citing an anonymous source, reported that the Jets plan to place a contract tender on Edwards, a restricted free agent in March, that would require a team to give New York first- and third-round picks if it signs him.

Indianapolis Colts head coach Jim Caldwell, left, talks with quarterback Peyton Manning before practice in Indianapolis on Wednesday.

Manning, Colts ready for second shot at Jets INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Peyton Manning is on a simple mission this week: Strike fast, stay on the field and take the Colts back to Miami. The four-time MVP and his Colts teammates can’t wait for the journey to begin. Nearly a month after then-undefeated Indianapolis set off a national firestorm by yanking its starters early against the New York Jets, Manning & Co. will get another at them in this weekend’s AFC championship game — even if nobody lets them forget what happened the first time. “Do you expect to play all four quarters this week?” Manning was asked jokingly before he could even settle in at the podium Wednesday. “I do, yeah,” Manning deadpanned, drawing laughter. But in Indianapolis, this is no laughing matter.

Furious fans deluged local radio talk shows following Indy’s 29-15 loss in Week 16, and fans weren’t the only ones upset. After the game, four-time Pro Bowl center Jeff Saturday said he understood why Indy’s home fans booed, other players seemed surprised by coach Jim Caldwell’s decision to pull players early and Manning insisted nothing should be read into his body language even though he uncharacteristically kept his helmet on for most of the final 20 minutes that day. Since then, players and coaches have reached a consensus that they may not be playing in their third AFC title game since 2003 had they not done it this way. “Really, we’ve tried to focus in on the things that we thought were in the best interest of our team to get us into the position we are right now,” Caldwell said. “That was the ultimate

goal.” It’s taken the Colts (15-2) a little longer to convince the fans. Three weeks ago, Manning jump-started the reconciliation process after another loss at Buffalo by explaining nothing could be changed. He said it was time to move forward and that he hoped fans would forgive the Colts and provide a united front in the playoffs. The message resonated. While other players and team president Bill Polian continued making their pitches, fans responded Saturday night by hitting the highest decibel-level in the two years Lucas Oil Stadium has been the Colts’ home. The result: Indy 20, Baltimore 3 — the Colts’ first postseason victory since Manning was named Super Bowl MVP in February 2007. A win Sunday, and a ticket to Miami, would finally fix everything.

JACKSON, Mississippi (AP) — That sure looks like Tiger Woods. The face. The rounded shoulders. The eyes staring out from under a cap. Celebrity Web site says the next issue of the National Enquirer will feature photos of the world’s No. 1 golfer at Pine Grove Behavioral Health and Addiction Services in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. The site posted eight photos that purport to show Woods — wearing white shorts and a dark hooded sweatshirt — at the Pine Grove facility where the Gentle Path sexual addiction program is conducted. Calls to the National Enquirer were not immediately returned Wednesday afternoon. Woods’ agent, Mark Steinberg, declined to comment on the photo or whether Woods was at the clinic. If the photos are authentic, they would be the first of Woods since he appeared at halftime of the Stanford-Cal football game Nov. 21 when he was inducted into Stanford’s sports Hall of Fame. Six days later, Woods crashed his SUV into a tree outside his home in Florida, setting off a stunning downfall over allegations of rampant extramarital affairs. Woods eventually confessed to infidelity, and he said he would take an indefinite break from golf while he tries to save his marriage. He hasn’t been seen in public since the Nov. 27 accident. And since then, reporters have tried to find one of the most famous athletes in the world, reporting that he has been spotted everywhere from Arizona to Africa, from New York to the Bahamas.

Bertsch takes Hope lead after 10-year layoff Maples Septic Tank Service


LA QUINTA, Calif. (AP) — Shane Bertsch hopped out of his RV and excelled on a course he hadn’t seen in over 10 years, opening with a 10-under 62 Wednesday at the Hope Classic for a two-stroke lead over Alex Prugh and Jeff Quinney. Bertsch was the last player to register for the five-day, four-course tournament after a comically difficult travel path from Hawaii to the Palm Springs

area, yet he still posted the best round of his PGA Tour career. Bertsch had 10 birdies without a bogey even while helping line up putts for his pro-am playing partners under intermittent rain and wind. “I was just comfortable,” Bertsch said. “I always like these formats, because I help the guys out, and it keeps me maybe not so focused on myself until it’s

the day wearing nothing thicker than golf shirts before the wind and moisture whipped up. “It was Palm Springs golf — not a lot of wind, starting to warm up,” Slocum said. “And then all of a sudden when I made the turn, it definitely kicked right back up. The wind started blowing, and it cooled off. I put the sweater back on, and obviously golf is a little more difficult.”

Men find plenty to love in big, beautiful women

HOROSCOPES Universal Press Syndicate

Happy Birthday: You can make great strides toward your present and future goals. This is a time for you to take your life seriously and make the adjustments that honor your beliefs and fulfill your dreams. There is money to be made but you must be willing to budget so you will have the funds to put your plans into motion. Your numbers are 2, 4, 15, 22, 25, 36, 40 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t fold under pressure. You cannot let emotional restrictions slow you down or interfere with your plans. A personal relationship will offer you encouragement and support and help you establish what it is you want to do. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Stop wasting time and get on with business. Someone you have worked with or met in the past will offer you an opportunity worth considering. A geographical move may not be a bad idea. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Pick up skills or improve your lifestyle or your future in any way possible. You have plenty going for you. Don’t settle for anything less than what you want. A favor will be granted for something you’ve done in the past. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t take anyone who is playing emotional games too seriously. A change of plans will turn out to be to your benefit, so don’t make a fuss. Alterations at home will be better than anticipated and will be costefficient. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): A change at work will help you determine what direction you should take in order to advance. Take action. Waiting around to see what everyone else does will cost you personally and professionally. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Make a commitment to someone you want to have in your corner. A


change at home will come about if you discuss your plans. There is money to be made if you make a move or invest in something or someone to make a profit. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don’t limit what you can do because someone is trying to make you feel guilty. Use your intuition to guide you in the right direction and you will not go wrong. Someone from your past will provide you with information you need. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You can make some drastic changes that will allow you to do more things that interest you. An emotional relationship may need a little extra attention. Plan a romantic evening and you can make amends. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Your emotional outlook will catch the attention of someone you’ve known a long time. Travel plans will give you greater incentive to work hard. You will receive recognition for a job well done if you pay close attention to detail. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Look into the possibility of making some personal changes that allow you to be closer to work or to make a professional jump to another field of interest. Don’t limit yourself. Opportunities exist. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Don’t give in to someone putting demands on you or asking for unreasonable favors. It may be time to start thinking about your recent choices -- decide whom you do or don’t want in your life. The people you associate with can make a difference to your reputation. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Take a chance on someone or something offered to you. A professional change may lead you down an altogether different path. A challenge will raise your confidence and prove you have something worth offering.

DEAR ABBY: “Happy Being Me in Massachusetts” (Nov. 20) is a large girl whose mother told her “heavy women are not desirable.” Well, I was a size 18/20 and weighed more than 200 pounds when I met my husband while out with mutual friends. He’s good-looking, smart, witty, affectionate and passionate. He’s everything a woman looks for in a life partner. He had never dated a plus-size woman before, but he was smitten from the moment he saw me, and pursued me from the start because he thought I have a beautiful face and a great personality. We have one child and another on the way, and he finds me as appealing now as he did the night we met. No woman should ever “settle” for a partner, and “Happy” should not do so just because her mother thinks she’s “too heavy.” That mother is trying to pass her low self-esteem issues along to her daughter, and I hope “Happy” is savvy enough to brush it off. Big girls can be sexy, too, because there’s nothing sexier than confidence. — MICHELLE IN MICHIGAN DEAR MICHELLE: The letters of encouragement in support of “Happy” have far outweighed her mother’s negative stance. Read on: DEAR ABBY: “Happy Being Me” needs to know that there are men like me who prefer plus-size women. My wife weighs 275 pounds, and I think she’s gorgeous. “Hap-

py” just needs to put herself out there, and one of us will find her. — HAPPY WITH MY LARGE LADY DEAR ABBY: I met my first husband when I wore a much smaller size. As the years went on, my size increased. He ended up leaving me for a smaller girl. After our split, I moved home and the first words out of my mother’s mouth were, “You need to work on yourself because you’re not going to find someone new looking like you do.” It was extremely hurtful, but beyond that, it was WRONG. Less than a year after my divorce, I was in a healthy relationship with a man who loved me for myself. We married, have a baby and are living happily ever after. The size of my jeans has never mattered to my hubby — only the size of my heart. — BIG JEANS, BIGGER HEART DEAR ABBY: In the past, I admit I was one of those men who wouldn’t look twice at a large girl. Then I met my wife. She wasn’t exactly petite,

but it didn’t matter. She truly is the girl of my dreams. We have both gained some weight over the years, but size really doesn’t matter. “Happy’s” mother is wrong. The right woman can always find the right man. — LUCKY MAN IN ALBUQUERQUE DEAR ABBY: I attend dances every month that support women of size. I met my dream man at one of them a few months ago. He is kind, supportive, handsome and loves my body. (And I love his!) Because society says that a larger woman isn’t attractive doesn’t mean EVERYONE thinks so. When I started going to functions for plus-sized women at the age of 26, I found a whole new world where I was accepted and welcomed. “Happy” should get on to her Web browser and look for “Big Beautiful Women” groups in her area. Love is out there — for ALL body types. — LARGE AND IN LOVE DEAR ABBY: My mother, who is big, wonderful and loving, made me appreciate large women. My wife was small in high school and “blossomed” later. I love my “big gal wife” and support her in every way possible. If she wants to change her appearance, then I want her to do it for herself. And if she’s happy the way she is, I’m OK with that, too. “Happy Being Me” just needs to be confident in her own skin and she will find “Mr. Right,” not “Mr. Right Now.” — BRIAN IN WISCONSIN



Zowie! Chili sauce lands German teens in hospital

“If you don’t shut that baby up, I will shut her up for you.”

BERLIN (AP) — Officials in Germany say eight teenagers were hospitalized after a test of courage in which they drank chili sauce more than 200 times hotter than normal. The Red Cross in the southern city of Augsburg says that 10 boys, aged 13 and 14, year drank the sauce Wednesday morning, apparently in school. The German news agency DAPD quoted the Red Cross as saying the boys complained of feeling sick, and eight were taken to a hospital. They were to be kept in overnight for observation. The Red Cross said that on the Scoville scale, which measures the hotness of sauce, the sauce measured 535,000 — compared to 2,500 for normal Tabasco sauce.

Man tells cops he paid for sex, but didn’t get it

Man found guilty of slapping girl in Ga. Walmart ATLANTA (AP) — A Georgia man has been found guilty of second degree child cruelty for slapping a crying 2-year-old at a Walmart. Roger Stephens of Stone Mountain was convicted Tuesday in a Gwinnett County bench trial, which is held without a jury. Stephens, who was 61 when arrested, will spend six months in jail followed by six months of home confinement. Authorities say the girl and her mother were shopping on Aug. 31, when the toddler began crying. The police report says Stephens approached the mother and said,


MARLBOROUGH, N.H. (AP) — Police said a man and woman from New Hampshire are each facing prostitution charges after the man called police to say he’d paid for sex, but the woman then refused. WMUR-TV reported a 22-year-old woman and 32-year-old man were cited into court at a later date. Police said the man called Marlborough Police on Monday to say he’d paid the woman and a third party $150 to have sex with him on Sunday, but she wouldn’t follow through.

Police: Angry man kidnaps snowball-tossing teen ANSONIA, Conn. (AP) — Police said a prank turned potentially dangerous when a man angry about a snowball hitting his car allegedly pulled a knife on a group of youths and kidnapped one of them. No one was injured. Joshua Good, 25, was to be arraigned Monday in Superior Court on charges including first-degree kidnapping, threatening and reckless endangerment. The kidnapping charge carries 10 to 25 years in prison. Police said a group of youths was throwing snowballs near Colony Park Friday night when Good’s car was hit. Police say Good threatened the youths with a knife and forced a 13-year-old boy into his car. See answer, page 2A

Billy Graham Send your queries to “My Answer,” Billy Graham Evangelistic Assoc., 1 Billy Graham Parkway, Charlotte, N.C., 28201

Did Cain and Abel have wives? Q: Where did Adam and Eve’s sons get their wives? I’ve heard people talk about this for years, but I’ve never heard anyone give a clear answer. -- Mrs. E.M. A: The Bible doesn’t say where Adam and Eve’s first two sons -- Cain and Abel -- got their wives, although it does tell us that Cain and his wife had at least one child (Enoch). The usual assumption is that Cain and Abel married their sisters. (Later this was forbidden by the Old Testament, but was necessary at the beginning of the human race.) Don’t be sidetracked by questions like this, however -- because the story of Cain and Abel is an important one, and has many lessons to teach us. (You can read it in the fourth chapter of Genesis.) Cain, the Bible tells us, became angry at his brother because God had accepted Abel’s sacrifice but rejected Cain’s sacrifice, because Cain was selfish and his heart wasn’t right before God. Over time Cain’s anger grew, and eventually he killed his brother -- thus committing the first murder. God asked him where his brother was, and his reply has echoed across the centuries: “I don’t know.... Am I my brother’s keeper?” (Genesis 4:9). Heartless and totally wrapped up in himself, Cain became the ancestor of all those through the ages who have lived by violence instead of brotherly love. The story of Cain and Abel, however, points to an even greater truth -- and that is the reality of human sin.
