then you dig in for the hard work.” Moss kicked off the new year with the 1:1 laptop initiative at the middle school level, something administrators have been excited about.

Let’s preserve the state’s open land Winston-Salem Journal

T

here are some beautiful places in New Jersey, but “the Garden State” is not what most of us envision for North Carolina’s future. It’s too crowded, too developed, too urban and suburban. But North Carolina is rapidly becoming many of those things. A report out this month from Environment North Carolina shows that more than one million acres of what had been undeveloped land fell to the bulldozers during the past decade. Ferrel Guillory, the director of the Program on Public Life at UNC-Chapel Hill, has presented a population slide show for years. It consists of maps of North Carolina, through the past 15 or so decades, with little black dots covering the urban areas. The lesson is obvious. What was once a state of a few urban dots and much sparsely

populated white space is now just the opposite. In broad expanses, the dots are so crowded together that they can’t be individually discerned. It’s getting harder and harder to find white spots to visit -- actually, green spots -- where forests and farmland predominate. More than a decade ago, former Gov. Jim Hunt and the environmental community set a target of saving one million acres from permanent development by the year 2010. We’ve now reached that year, but we missed the target. During the decade, North Carolinians were able to preserve just less than 650,000 acres. That is certainly no small accomplishment. Included in that collection are some “significant set asides of natural areas ... including state purchases of Grandfather Mountain, Chimney Rock and 64,000 acres of game lands along the Roanoke, Upper

Tar and Chowan rivers in the northeastern counties and Juniper Creek in the southeastern part of the state,” according to The N.C. Insider newsletter. But the million-acre target was a serious attempt to get ahead of the development curve, to preserve enough of North Carolina’s wild and agricultural lands that our children and grandchildren would know the difference between this state and those in the congested areas of the Northeast. And the target was just an interim goal. To preserve a sizable sample of the state’s natural environment, it was going to be necessary to add more targets during the decade that began on Jan. 1. Our heritage is at stake here. North Carolinians must re-focus on saving our most precious resources for the future. We must maintain some white spots on that map of black dots.

Taxing in a digital age

I

f you’re like most North Carolinians, you paid less in state and local taxes in 2008 than you did in 1994. I know what you’re thinking. No way. They’re always raising my taxes. They did it again last year. And you’re right, kind of. ... But while the rates are rising, the percentage of people’s incomes that is going to state and local taxes isn’t. According to the Washington-based Tax Foundation, on a per capita earnings basis, North Carolinians paid an average of 10.3 percent of their income to state and local taxes in 1994. In 2008, the percentage was 9.8 percent. The percentages can be looked at a few ways. Rising earnings are probably one part of the explanation. While income taxes might capture the same percentage of earnings, sales and property taxes might not. The bigger factor may be the legislature’s decision during the late 1990s to eliminate the state portion of the sales tax on unprepared food. But there’s another reason that state and local taxes, measured as a percentage of income, have remained relatively stable even as some rates rise: the tax base is eroding; technology, particularly Internet-based sales, have accelerated the erosion. Last year, North Carolina legislators took one step to try to slow that erosion. They started taxing digital downloads, reasoning that someone who buys computer software by digital download over the Internet ought to pay the same sales tax as someone who purchases the same software by grabbing a disc at the local Best Buy. The Fayetteville Observer recently reported that some companies, like Apple, have accepted the change and begun collecting the taxes. Others, like Amazon, have refused. The dispute is likely to end up in the courts. The taxing of downloads, though, is just one part of a larger debate about the taxing of all Internet purchases. For years, state governments have been trying to get Congress to go along with their efforts to require Internet vendors to collect sales taxes based on the state of the purchaser. Congress, of course, only likes taxes when it gets to spend the money. Vendors like Amazon, consumer champions of a tax-free Internet and various tax protest groups argue that Internet shouldn’t be shackled with sales taxes. Online purchases lessen pollution and lessen the need for government services, they argue. ... The intellectually honest argument for the Internet-free crowd is to do away with all sales taxes in favor of income taxes. Good luck with that one.

Lessons of rookie year

P

resident Obama begins his second year in the White House with such anemic approval ratings, you’d think he was another Ronald Reagan: Among recent presidents, only the Gipper had fallen so low in the esteem of voters at this stage of his presidency.

In this context, the serenity of Eugene Robinson is a columnist with the Obama’s political advisers is understandable.

Today’s Prayer

Letters to the Editor Wasn’t Kennedy’s seat or the Democrats’ seat; it was the people’s seat To the Editor: Scott Brown’s victory in Massachusetts on Tuesday night was a Tea Party victory. This historic victory could be the beginning of a fundamental realignment in American politics toward common-sense, conservative candidates. Brown won because he gave freedomloving Democrats, Republicans and unaffiliated voters reason to support him and propel him to victory. Brown ran against government-run health care and Washington spending. He ran on national security and broadbased tax cuts. He didn’t need a teleprompter — his campaign speeches were based on his conservative principles and came from the heart. “I will be the 41st vote against government-run health care,” resonated with Massachusetts voters who are experiencing the effects of universal health care in Massachusetts — long waiting lines; increased premiums for middle class families; and exploding costs to the state budget. “I believe your tax dollars should be spent fighting terrorists rather than providing them with attorneys,” resonated with voters who do not agree with the Obama administration’s idea of providing non-citizen terrorists with constitutional rights. Working class voters connected with a candidate who proudly drove his GM truck with over 200,000 miles across the state to get his message out. There will be many more Brown victories in November and eviction notices given to incumbents. Bob Etheridge has consistently voted with Nancy Pelosi and the liberal Democrat majority rather than for the constituents in his district. His continued support for big labor and the Employee Free Choice Act may be popular in New Jersey but not in his conservative 2nd District. His vote for Cap and Trade will increase energy costs for farmers, employers and working class families. His vote for the House version of ObamaCare is certainly not popular with his constituents. His recent vote to increase the debt ceiling of the federal government is certainly not popular with constituents who are concerned about out-of-control government spending. Etheridge has squandered his position on the powerful Ways and Means committee to advance Nancy Pelosi’s agenda. Probably most damning for Etheridge is his placating party line responses to his constituents’ concerns. Brown’s oneliner “This is not Sen. Kennedy’s seat; this is not a Democrat seat; this is the people’s seat” resonated with voters across the country and is a defining moment for the 2010 elections. Brown’s victory proves that mainstream, conservative candidates can win anywhere in the country if they’re willing to fight for the principles of freedom. The Massachusetts victory also shows that if Americans are willing to get involved in the political process and fight for their principles, they don’t have to settle for second-best.

time,� he said. “The goal now is to nurture these programs. We provide the support to make sure it’s an everyday thing.� Moss said he’s been grateful for the staff’s cooperation in implementing new initiatives, like the laptop program. “They’re very willing to do whatever’s necessary for the students,� he said. And he values his relationship with the staff. “There’s nothing a superintendent can do affect classroom instruction if teachers don’t buy into it,� Moss said. “It’s exciting to be associated with teachers of this caliber.� He said he believes the climate in the schools is a positive one because teachers feel involved in decision-making processes. “I do have an opendoor policy. I expect the teachers to stop me and question me,� he said. “I go into the school buildings

and allow that dialogue to take place.� Moss also sees a positive relationship between the district, the community and the county. The community support from the sales tax, which was a big issue for the district in 2009, is one example of that. And he’s seen cooperation between the Lee County Board of Education and the Lee County Board of Commissioners, something that he hasn’t always experienced in other counties. “Here in Lee County, it appears to me that they work collaboratively together to provide a great educational program for the citizens and that’s been a great surprise,� he said. In his almost 30 years in education, Moss has seen many changes, the advance of technology being one. With more students using the Internet rather than turning to encyclopedias to find information, they now need to be able to discern what is factual and what is not, he said. And teamwork has

become more important in classroom work and in careers. “Years ago, you could decide on a career and almost work exclusively by yourself,� Moss said. Now, “there’s so much emphasis on team and you share and discuss jointly to come up with solutions.� One thing he’d like to see change in Lee County is the physical layout of the classroom: He believes it needs to become more interactive. “It doesn’t look any different. Rows of chairs, desks, teacher in front,� he said. “That is probably the most difficult thing to change, the technology of instruction.� “At the end of the day, students should come out dragging from the classrooms, tired from the day. We need to work our students much harder than our teachers are working them,� Moss said. He has his own personal improvement goals as well. He acknowledged that better interaction with the public is one of his top priorities. “The area that I constantly have to remind myself is keeping the public informed before we initiate a change,� he said, mentioning the

quick turnaround with the laptop program and how it happened sooner than he had originally expected. “That is an area that I plan on working on in the future.� Prior to working in Stanly and Beaufort counties, Moss began his career in Hoke County as a teacher working with students who had already failed two or three times. “I had to challenge them and motivate them to stay in school,� he said. The connections he made stuck with the students. If they saw him at a store or restaurant, “they would make a point to come up to me and tell me they appreciated the skills that I gave them,� he said. “That is what you live for. You live for that student who remembers something you did. As an administrator, you hope you’re making that kind of an impact.� Though he hasn’t had much time to do that in Lee County just yet, Moss hopes to make that type of impact here in the coming years. “I want students to know me by name and talk to me, not just about school stuff. I want to be approachable and personable for all the students in the district,� he said.

: The new facility has been a great opportunity to share the YMCA experience with even more people. Since we opened in November, we currently have 378 memberships. The new 12,000-squarefoot facility features strength and cardio equipment, free weights, a group fitness studio and a nursery. It’s a state-ofthe-art facility. But the real draw is the people who work there, and the sense of community the YMCA creates. When you step into the new Lee County YMCA Wellness Center you’ll see something you won’t see in your typical gym. Prominently displayed in the entry of the new facility is the YMCA’s mis-

Q

: New Year’s resolutions usually include some kind of fitness element to them. How can the YMCA help people with their individual resolutions to get in better physical shape?

A

: The YMCA is probably the best tool to help you keep those resolutions. We have trained wellness staff who can help you determine and reach your goals. The YMCA is a place where anyone can feel comfortable. What sets the Y apart from gyms is that the whole family can enjoy the YMCA. YMCAs help adults and children make new friends and develop skills, while learning the values of caring, honesty, respect, responsibility and faith in God. Through YMCA health and wellness programs, participants of all ages can grow in spirit, mind and body — regardless of fitness or skill level.

It starts at the top. For six years the police chief has been telling us that the courthouse is a revolving door for violent criminals. We haven’t had one single resolution saying the courthouse is a problem. Until we’re willing to stand up and defend our numbers, we’ll never sell decade. Any other new programs to discuss?

A

: The Lee County YMCA was established in 1996 to serve citizens in Lee County. It is a part of the YMCA of the Triangle. Since then, hundreds of children have participated in youth sports, after school and tracking out care, and family programming throughout Lee County. Hundreds of children and teens in Lee County have learned new skills, made new friends, and seen first-hand the benefits of the YMCA. This summer we plan to offer quality summer day camps for children. Look for new locations and new, lower prices. We are also in the process of starting a Y-Learning program at B.T. Bullock Elementary School. Y-Learning is a fully subsidized tutorial program offered to students who are performing at below grade level in grades 3-5. The goal of the Y-Learning Program is to increase students’ reading, writing and mathematics achievement through experiences that include a focus on social, emotional and character development.

: How has the downturn in the economy impacted the YMCA?

The YMCA of the Triangle (Lee County YMCA is part of this organization) has actually seen an increase in membership since the economy took a hit. YMCA is not a building, it is not a health club. The YMCA is the people. The YMCA is a place to exercise, a place to learn new skills, and a place to grow. The YMCA is a great, fun, safe place for children. We find that even families, who those cutting back on frills, don’t want their children to do without a positive YMCA experience.

Q

: The YMCA still owns land off U.S. 1, where there were once plans for a facility. Any plans for that land now?

A

: We opened this “express YMCA� as the next step to building a fullfacility YMCA. The current location in the Galleria Shopping Center is home to group fitness classes, yoga and aerobics. The YMCA will continue to offer youth programs throughout Lee County. The YMCA of the Triangle owns land near U.S. 1 and Burns Drive in Sanford that will be the permanent home for the full-facility Lee County YMCA. Once we raise awareness in the community and conduct a capital campaign to raise funds for a full-facility YMCA, we plan to build on that site.

UNEMPLOYMENT

STATE BRIEFS Perdue seeks money to clean up from winter storms

Casino cleans slots every 2 hours to beat virus

RALEIGH (AP) — North Carolina Gov. Beverly Perdue has declared an emergency in 15 mountain counties in hopes the state can get federal help to pay for the clean up from December winter storms. Western parts of North Carolina got up to 2 feet of snow the weekend of Dec. 18, followed by heavy rains and ice a week later — knocking out power, damaging roads and stranding motorists. Perdue’s office said Friday recovery costs are estimated at least $12.5 million. The state wants the federal government to pay more than $9 million of the tab. Perdue’s declaration is the first step to seek federal funds. The declaration covers Alleghany, Avery, Ashe, Buncombe, Burke, Caldwell, Haywood, Jackson, Madison, McDowell, Mitchell, Rutherford, Transylvania, Watauga and Yancey counties.

CHEROKEE (AP) — Workers are cleaning slot machines with bleach every two hours as a North Carolina casino battles a virus that has sickened nearly 250 people. Harrah’s Cherokee Casino and Hotel is wiping down its 3,300 slot machines with a bleach and water mix around the clock, The Asheville Citizen-Times reported Friday. The outbreak since Jan. 12 has caused intestinal troubles including vomiting and diarrhea. Door knobs, escalator handrails and restrooms are being sanitized hourly. Casino spokesman Charles Pringle says the culprit is a norovirus that is sometimes a problem on cruise ships and at schools.

Regulator suspended 1 week for lot inquiry

RALEIGH (AP) — A North Carolina environmental regulator is expected to return to work Monday following a one-week unpaid suspension for asking about lot prices at a Carteret County development days after issuing a development permit. Jason Dail acknowledged he asked Cannonsgate’s developer about lots on behalf of his stepfather in 2005. An employee for the developer then offered a $40,000 discount. An internal investigation by the state Department of Environment and Natural Resources found neither Dail nor his family accepted the offer but determined there was an appearance of impropriety.

2nd provider offers free cell phones for needy RALEIGH (AP) — A second company is offering free mobile telephone service for needy North Carolina residents. The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Friday that Assurance Wireless launched its free service this week with an advertising campaign. The subsidiary of Virgin Mobile is offering 200 free minutes a week along with a free handset that normally sells for $10. TracFone last year was first to offer free mobile service to North Carolina’s poor. The service is subsidized by a 25-year-old federal program that reimburses phone companies $10 a month for each customer. To qualify for free phone service, a customer must participate in a federal or state assistance program such as Medicaid, food stamps or public housing vouchers.

December rate hits historic high RALEIGH (AP) — North Carolina’s unemployment rate hit a historic high of 11.2 percent in December as the tally of jobs lost by the state’s workers since the recession started two years ago neared 250,000. December’s jobless rate of 11.2 percent rose from 10.8 percent in November, the Employment Security Commission said Friday. “That’s a pretty significant jump in the unemployment rate when we’ve been into the recovery this long,” said Harry Davis, the chief economist for the North Carolina Bankers Associ-

ation and an Appalachian State University banking professor. Many economists believe the national economy started recovering last summer. But job growth lags an economic rebound because companies need convincing that customers won’t quickly disappear again. So unemployment may keep rising at the same time there are other indications that economic prospects are improving. December marked the eleventh straight month the state’s unemployment rate has hovered around 11 percent. In December 2008, the state rate was

8.1 percent. While December’s rate may be revised later, it is fractionally higher than the previous peak of 11.1 percent in May. The national jobless rate in December was 10 percent, the same as the previous month. Since the U.S. fell into recession in Dec. 2007, North Carolina has lost 248,000 nonfarm jobs. Manufacturers have slashed 95,500 workers since that time, while construction companies cut 65,800. Those two sectors shed 2,100 positions in December, but the month’s biggest loser was the 2,600

jobs cut by leisure and hospitality services like hotels and entertainment companies. That’s no surprise with consumers worried about their incomes cutting back on luxuries, Davis said. More losses at leisure companies can be expected this year, he said. But manufacturing and construction job losses have about bottomed out, Davis said. “We’ve now lost most of the low-paying, lowskilled jobs that are going to go overseas,” he said. “We’ve lost so many that’s probably about run its course.”

RALEIGH — North Carolina’s top attorney has rejected a call by his South Carolina counterpart for closed-door talks to settle a dispute over waterways that flow through both states, according to a letter released Friday. Attorney General Roy Cooper said in in the note that he wants the discussions to take place in a commission appointed by both states that would be made available for public input. South Carolina’s top attorney, Henry McMaster, had suggested in a December letter to Cooper that the two sides hold confidential discussions directly with each other.

“We don’t need a confidentiality agreement because full and open public input will be critical in reaching the best solution,” Cooper wrote in a letter dated Thursday. Both sides have indicated that they would prefer to come to an outof-court agreement. McMaster spokesman Trey Walker said South Carolina attorneys are not optimistic that the commission cited by Cooper as a venue will reach a resolution any time soon, given that it has already been working on the issue for years. He suggested that the two sides sit down directly and hash out the issue “mano-a-mano.” “Resolution must happen between the two parties in this case,” Walker

said. McMaster filed a lawsuit in 2007 to stop a plan that would have allowed two North Carolina cities — both suburbs of Charlotte — to pump millions of gallons of water each day from the Catawba and Yadkin river basins, arguing that such a drawdown would deprive the downstream state its equitable share of the resources. The Catawba River travels 225 miles through the Carolinas and supplies drinking water for more than 1 million people. It’s also a major source of

electricity generation. The U.S. Supreme Court is hearing the case. It ruled earlier this week that Duke Energy and the Catawba River Water Supply Project — both of which argued that it has water interests that can’t be encompassed by one state or the other — must be allowed to participate in the water fight. Duke operates 11 dams and reservoirs in the two states. South Carolina’s attorneys had argued that the water should be divided between the states before third parties stake their claims to a share of it.

Exodus of quake survivors from Port-au-Prince

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; By boat or by bus, by bicycle and on foot along clogged and broken roads, earthquake survivors streamed away from this city and its landscape of desolation Friday and into Haitiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

hinterlands and the unknown. The government and international agencies urgently searched for sites to build tent cities on Port-au-Princeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outskirts to shelter hundreds of thousands of

the homeless staying behind before springtimeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s onslaught of floods and hurricanes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to get people out of the sun and elements,â&#x20AC;? U.N. spokesman Nicholas Reader said as relief teams worked

to deliver food, water and medical aid to the population, estimated at 1 million, sprawled over some 600 settlements around the rubble-strewn capital and in the quake zone beyond. Into this bleak picture Friday came unexpected word of a rescue: An elderly woman, in bad condition, was said to have been pulled from ruins 10 days after the killer quake. But doctors saw little hope of saving her life. The 84-year-old woman was extricated from the wreckage of her home, relatives told doctors, who administered oxygen and intravenous fluids at the General Hospital. The rescue was the first reported since Wednesday, when many international search teams began packing up their gear. The 7.0-magnitude quake struck Jan. 12 and killed an estimated 200,000 people, according to Haitian government figures cited by the European Commission. Countless dead remained buried in thousands of collapsed and toppled buildings in Port-auPrince, a city of slums that drew migrants from an even more destitute countryside. Now that movement has abruptly reversed, as quake victims, with meager belongings, jam small buses and battered automobiles, take to bicycles or just walk to outlying towns and rural areas, to relatives or whatever shelter they can find. They jammed a simple Port-au-Prince wharf as well, in hopes of a spot aboard an outbound skiff sailing up the coast. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll wait till I find one,â&#x20AC;? said Edson Roddy, 18. As many as 200,000

Workers unload bags of flour in Port-au-Prince, Friday. International aid flowing into Haiti after the Jan. 12 earthquake has been struggling with logistical problems, and many people are still desperate for food and water. have fled the city of 2 million, the U.S. Agency for International Development reported, citing a Haitian survey of bus stations and of sources in destination towns. At St. Marc, 40 miles (70 kilometers) to the north, most arrived with injuries from the quake, the U.S. agency said. Now huddled with cousins in that dusty seaside town, Port-au-Prince refugee Daniel Dukenson said his nephew and sister, pulled from the familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fallen house after the quake, were recuperating. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to go back,â&#x20AC;? the 28-year-old computer teacher said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to take a lot of time for Port-au-Prince to get back on its feet. Two years maybe.â&#x20AC;? The end of the road didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always offer relief, however. At least 100,000 people may have fled farther north, to Gonaives, a city of 280,000 devastated by back-to-back hurricanes in 2008. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are working with authorities to discourage people from going to Gonaives,â&#x20AC;? said Myrta Kaulard, country director of the U.N. World Food

Program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a very dangerous town and it is still partially destroyed from the hurricanes.â&#x20AC;? Brazilian U.N. peacekeepers and work crews have begun clearing a site at Croix-des-Bouquets, just northeast of Portau-Prince, for what may become a tent city for 30,000 people, the International Organization for Migration said. Six other sites have also been identified, but it will probably take weeks before the first camps accept Port-auPrinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s homeless, the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spokesman JeanPhilippe Chauzy said in Geneva. Such camps â&#x20AC;&#x153;cannot be built overnight,â&#x20AC;? said the agencyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Haiti mission chief, Vincent Houver. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are standards that have to be designed by experts. There is the leveling of the land, procurement and delivery of tents, as well as water and sanitation.â&#x20AC;? Many quake victims may resist the voluntary resettlement, wary of moving farther from their wrecked homes and their possessions inside, or from relatives. But the need for shelter and security will likely prevail, Chauzy said, particularly as hurricane season approaches in June. While plans were drafted for major relocations, scores of aid organizations, big and small, stepped up deliveries of food, water, medical supplies and other aid to the homeless and other needy of Port-au-Prince.

Where will Conan Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien go? By DAVID BAUDER AP Television Writer

NEW YORK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Shortly before agreeing to the terms of his unpleasant exit from NBC, Conan Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien joked on â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Tonight Showâ&#x20AC;? that his plans for next week include making a big move to Fox. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Megan Fox,â&#x20AC;? he said to the laughter of fans who have made him a folk hero for losing his dream job. A day after sealing his deal with NBC that gives Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien $45 million and allows Jay Leno to return to â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Tonight Showâ&#x20AC;? throne, Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien airs his final show, with Will Ferrell, Tom Hanks, Neil Young and promised surprises. Fox â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the network â&#x20AC;&#x201D; represents the most attractive landing for Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien if he wants to continue hosting a daily television talk show. CBS is comfortable with its late-night lineup of David Letterman and Craig Ferguson, ABC has expressed no interest in Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien, so Fox is the only one of the four big broadcast networks with room for the late latenight host. Fox has long sought its own late-night franchise. Still, there are questions about whether Fox

(AP Photo/NBC, Paul affiliates would welcome the pompadoured redhead or not. While Fox has signaled an interest in Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien, there have been no offers or negotiating, said a person familiar with internal discussions Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brienâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s advisers have had, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the person was not authorized to speak publicly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Conan needs to kind of decompress for a little bit,â&#x20AC;? the person said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This has been a traumatic experience for him.â&#x20AC;? Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien will almost certainly wait to hear Foxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision before making any moves. Kevin Reilly, Foxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chief entertainment executive, lathered Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien

with love during a recent news conference. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very compatible fit for our brand,â&#x20AC;? said Reilly, a former NBC executive. Fox seeks a young audience, and Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien has proven adept at reaching that age group, particularly men. Done well, the show could produce significant profit at a time the Fox network is shuttered for the night. Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien would also come with a ready-made show and more than 15 years of late-night experience. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something Foxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s previous failures in late night â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Joan Rivers and Chevy Chase â&#x20AC;&#x201D; didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have. Fox, which had no comment Thursday on Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brienâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s departure, theoretically could force an

Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien show on its affiliates but doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to. Many affiliates air sitcom reruns in late night and keep that advertising revenue to themselves. Fox may need to cut a deal to let affiliates in on profits from an Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien talk show. One possibility: allow affiliates to air a money-making rerun at 11 p.m. EST and start an Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien show half an hour later at the same time as Letterman and Jay Leno. Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brienâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ratings are a concern, too. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tonightâ&#x20AC;? show ratings declined dramatically when Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien took over from Leno and, although Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brienâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s people argue that struggling NBCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lead-in with Leno and news had much to do with that, he had shown increased vulnerability to Ferguson in his old time slot. Shelley Goings, the general manager of KFXP-TV, a Fox affiliate in Pocatello, Idaho, said while Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brienâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sense of humor was a better fit on Fox than NBC, she wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pleased about potentially losing advertising dollars. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Revenues for all stations across the country have been hitting rock bottom,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would not make me happy, for sure.â&#x20AC;?

Britney Spears arrives for hearing LOS ANGELES (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Britney Spears is meeting with a judge overseeing her court conservatorship. The pop singer arrived at a downtown Los Angeles courthouse Friday for a closed hearing. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Spearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; first meeting with SupeSpears rior Court Commissioner Reva Goetz since the singer concluded a world tour last year. Spearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; father, Jamie, and others have controlled the singerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s personal and financial affairs for nearly two years. The conservatorship was created in 2008 after a series of high-profile hospitalizations and incidents of erratic behavior by the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Womanizerâ&#x20AC;? singer. Britney Spears has since experienced a career resurgence and had substantial visits with her sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James. Jamie Spears also attended Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hearing.

Jackson estate administrators want cut of profits

LOS ANGELES (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Two men administering Michael Jacksonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s estate are seeking 10 percent of profits theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re able to generate from the late pop superstars work, court documents filed Friday show. Attorney John Branca and music executive John McClain filed a motion asking a court to approve the compensation, which will pay for a variety of services both men promise to provide. The filings state that the 10 percent will exclude profits from the â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is Itâ&#x20AC;? documentary and Jacksonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interest the Sony/ATV music catalog, as well as his own songs. It is unclear exactly how much Branca and McClain would be paid; an accounting of the estate has not been filed. The men are seeking to become the co-executives and creative directors for a company that will oversee a business based on Jacksonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s works. ** Planet 51: PG (10:20), 12:20, 5:25 ** Planet 51: PG (10:20), 12:20, 5:25

ECONOMY

ELYRIA, Ohio (AP) — President Barack Obama tried to revive his battered agenda and rally despondent Democrats on Friday with a renewed emphasis on jobs. His visit to this struggling Rust Belt city capped a tough first-anniversary week for a presidency that suffered jolts at the hands of Massachusetts voters and the Supreme Court. “I’m not going to win every round,” Obama told a town hall audience. But, striking a populist tone on a campaign-style swing, Obama pledged, “I can promise you there will be more fights in the days ahead.” He used the word “fight” or some variation over a dozen times as he tried out a revamped message focused mainly on the economy, part of a stepped up effort to persuade Americans he’s doing all he can to create jobs. “This isn’t about me. This is about you,” he said. And while he has recently voiced a willingness to find common

Instead of the anniversary celebration Obama might have expected,

the week was one of the worst in recent times for the White House, with much hand-wringing and blame-casting among dazed Democrats in the halls of Congress. The week brought two major shifts to the political landscape. Little-known Republican Scott Brown’s seizing of the Massachusetts Senate seat held for decades by the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy cost Democrats their filibuster-proof supermajority of 60 votes in the Senate and seri-

ously threatened Obama’s entire domestic agenda. It means Republicans will be able to stop or seriously slow down legislation at will. The GOP victory was also a poor omen for November’s midterms, continuing a trend that began with Democratic losses in November in gubernatorial races in Virginia and New Jersey. Also, a succession of Democratic lawmakers have decided to retire rather than face voters this year. Thursday’s Supreme Court ruling overturning limits on corporate political spending opened the way for businesses and special interests to spend money freely on commercials for or against individual candidates. Obama said the 5-4 decision would allow wealthy special interests to “drown out the voices of everyday Americans.” The opinion could have an impact on this fall’s races that could disproportionately work to the disadvantage of Democrats.

HEALTH CARE REFORM

Dems concede overhaul has hit ‘buzz saw’

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama, two days after signaling retreat on a massive health care overhaul, discounted the small-bore approach Friday and pledged to press for ambitious changes despite running into a “bit of a buzz saw” of opposition. Even as the president sought to bring the public

and nervous Democrats back on board, a leading member of his party suggested Congress slow it down on health care, a sign of eroding political will in the wake of Tuesday’s Republican election upset in Massachusetts. Sen. Chris Dodd, D-Conn., who ushered the overhaul legislation

through the Senate’s health committee last year after the death of his friend, Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, said Obama and lawmakers could “maybe take a breather for a month, six weeks.” “Maybe we do need to take this time. Look, it didn’t work, this process,” Dodd said, adding that Obama’s leadership was needed to get things back on track. The president didn’t offer a specific prescription for moving forward Friday, but he did deliver a full-throated defense of his signature domestic issue, which threatens to stall in Congress after Massachusetts voters denied Democrats their filibusterproof Senate majority. Law-

makers ended the week Friday having charted no clear path, with Dodd and others counseling caution over action. Just a week ago the health legislation had appeared on the cusp of passage after Obama threw himself into marathon negotiations with congressional leaders to work out differences between the House and Senate bills. “There are things that have to get done. This is our best chance to do it. We can’t keep on putting this off,” Obama said Friday at a town hall meeting in Elyria, Ohio, warning listeners that spiraling medical costs threaten to bankrupt them and the country unless Congress acts.

Top Senate Dem endorses Bernanke WASHINGTON (AP) — The top Democrat in the Senate has endorsed Ben Bernanke for a second term as chairman of the Federal Reserve. Majority Leader Harry Reid says the Fed will have to do more to help struggling homeowners keep their homes and urge banks to lend to small businesses. The Nevada Democrat’s endorsement was a welcome sign for Bernanke since more and more senators in both parties have announced opposition to Bernanke or said they are undecided. Reid raised eyebrows on Thursday after issuing a statement that failed to endorse Bernanke. Democrats had sharply criticized Bernanke for failing to police high-risk mortgages and missing the housing bubble.

CEOs to Hill: Quit calling us for campaign cash WASHINGTON (AP) — Dozens of current and former corporate executives have a message for Congress: Quit hitting us up for campaign cash. Roughly 40 executives from companies including Playboy Enterprises, ice cream maker Ben & Jerry’s, the Seagram’s liquor company, toymaker Hasbro, Delta Airlines and Men’s Wearhouse sent a letter to congressional leaders Friday urging them to approve public financing for House and Senate campaigns. They say they are tired of getting fundraising calls from lawmakers — and fear it will only get worse after Thursday’s Supreme Court ruling. The court ruled that corporations and unions can spend unlimited money on ads urging people to vote for or against candidates. The decision was sought by interest groups including one that represents American businesses, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. They argued that restrictions on ads they could finance close to elections violated their free-speech rights, and the court agreed.

Family dies in crossfire after sleepover drop-off APPOMATTOX, Va. (AP) — There was no school the next day, so 15-year-old Emily Quarles had a friend sleep over. As she and her mother took the friend home the next morning, they became targets for a rampaging gunman. When Emily’s father and boyfriend went looking for them, they were slain too. Police say Emily and her parents, Jonathan and Karen Quarles, and her boyfriend, 16-year-old Ronnie “Bo” Scruggs, were among eight people killed early Tuesday by 39-year-old Christopher Speight. He’s accused of firing on a police helicopter and hiding in the woods before surrendering nearly a day later. Speight is the uncle of Morgan Dobyns, the friend the Quarles were dropping off, who was also killed. An inventory obtained Friday of the items found through search warrants showed that investigators seized 42 homemade explosive devices and fuses, multiple rounds of ammunition, several assault rifles and a 9 mm pistol from the Appomattox home Speight shared with his sister, brother-in-law and their two children. The four were among Tuesday’s victims.

Country’s first legal gigolo starts work in Nevada

BEATTY, Nev. (AP) — A brothel in a Nevada desert town has hired the state’s first male prostitute, a muscular college dropout who abandoned a brief stint as a porn actor in Los Angeles to become the only legal gigolo in the United States. The Shady Lady Ranch successfully won state and county approval to clear the way for the “prostidude,” as Nevada’s newest sex worker is already being called. After a slow first week on the job, his first appointments are scheduled for this weekend. The male prostitute — known as “Markus” — has quickly become the center of attention in Nevada’s brothel industry.

REPORT: TRAINER ADMITS GIVING MCGWIRE PEDS BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) — A trainer who previously admitted supplying Jose Canseco with steroids now says he also gave performance enhancing-drugs to Mark McGwire. Curtis Wenzlaff, arrested in 1992 for steroids distribution, told ESPN’s “Outside the Lines” that McGwire’s goal was to get “bigger, faster, stronger,” according to excerpts released Friday. The interview is to be broadcast Sunday morning. McGwire last week admitted for the first time that he used steroids and human growth hormone on and off for a decade, including when he set the season home run record with 70 in 1998. He said he took performance-enhancing drugs for health, not for strength. “There are other things you can take for health that are anabolic, but it wouldn’t be that type of combination,” Wenzlaff said. “If Paris Hilton were to take that array, she could run over Dick Butkus.” McGwire, who retired as a player after the 2001 season, was hired in October as hitting coach of the St. Louis Cardinals.

Fresh off his first ATP title win in Auckland this month, the big-serving Isner defeated 12thseeded Gael Monfils of France 6-1, 4-6, 7-6 (4), 7-6 (5).

GOLF BUBBA WATSON SWIMS AHEAD AT HOPE CLASSIC

LA QUINTA, Calif. (AP) — Longhitting Bubba Watson is using the wet weather to his advantage in the Bob Hope Classic. Watson shot a 10-under 62 on Friday to take a two-stroke lead over Alex Prugh after the second round, which began and ended in driving rain. The storm wiped out play Thursday and threatened Friday in the five-round, four-course event. There were just enough hours in between for an impressive day by Watson, who’s trying to show there’s more to his game than his jaw-dropping drives. Watson still hasn’t won on the PGA Tour, but he showed off an improved putting stroke and capitalized on wet fairways at SilverRock. First-round leader Steve Bertsch was three strokes back with three others at 13 under.

Cavs prevail in close match By ALEX PODLOGAR alexp@sanfordherald.com

SANFORD — As his team was marching to a conference championship last season, Southern Lee wrestler Joey Haire couldn’t help but begin to look forward to what his senior year might have in store. Before he knew it, though, his team was without a coach. And then, after some teams had already begun their seasons, it looked like Haire was going to be without a team. In stepped former Southern Lee Athletic Director Cletis Gore, who took the reins of what was a rising program under Mike Short, who resigned amid controversy last spring. Suddenly, although thrown together in a matter of days, the Cavaliers program was up and running again. “If felt like we weren’t even going to have a season, or that if we did, we wouldn’t have enough matches for any of us to qualify for regionals,” Haire said following Friday night’s 45-35 victory over Lee County. “We didn’t know if we were going to get a chance.”

It’s going to be tough to beat them with so short of a turnaround, especially at their place. “But I think we have the motivation and the drive we need to beat them.

BASKETBALL Jackets cruise past Eagles SANFORD — The Lee County boys’ basketball team turned a 12-point lead into a 22-point advantage in the third quarter of a 67-55 win over Western Harnett in nonconference action on Thursday night. The Yellow Jackets opened the third quarter on a 10-0 run to get up 41-19 en route to their second straight win. Since the beginning of the Chatlee Shootout, the Yellow Jackets have won four of their last six games. The win improves Lee County to 5-12 overall, though the Jackets still stand at 1-9 in the Tri-9 Conference. The Eagles drop to 7-8 overall. Lee County was led by Dequan Swann, who came off the bench for the second straight game. Swann had 13 points, 10 of which came in the second half. He also snagged down five rebounds. Israel Williams added 12 points with four assists and four rebounds. Russell Tatum rounded out the doubledigit scorers with 10 points. Western Harnett was led by Franklin Trapp’s 15 points and six rebounds. Darien McNeill had 11 and Marcus Rayam had nine in the loss.

Apart from these products, regular grooming and brushing can help keep pet hair manageable. If you find pet hair is infiltrating every room of the house, consider confining your pet to one or two rooms. Keeping them out of the bedroom could help those who suffer from allergies because the hair won’t be transferred to pillows and bedding.

Coltsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; WRs ready for Revis Island

NFL BRIEFS Jetsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Ellis, Harris, Scott probable

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; New York Jets defensive end Shaun Ellis and linebackers David Harris and Bart Scott are probable for the AFC championship game despite being limited at practice with injuries. Ellis has a broken left hand that will be in a cast for the game against the Indianapolis Colts. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have surgery after the game, whether the Jets win or lose. Harris (right ankle) and Scott (left ankle) were not noticeably hobbled during practice Friday. Safety Kerry Rhodes was a full participant after bumping his right knee in practice Thursday.

Harvin misses practice, listed as questionable

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Minnesota receiver and returner Percy Harvin is listed as questionable for the NFC championship game. Harvin missed his second straight practice Friday because of migraine headaches, a problem heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s had most of his life and that cost him one game this season. Coach Brad Childress called the situation â&#x20AC;&#x153;less than idealâ&#x20AC;? and said Harvinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to fly with the team Saturday to New Orleans could be affected. Childress also noted Harvin has played before under the same conditions. Better news for the Vikings was the return to practice of starting defensive linemen Ray Edwards and Kevin Williams. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re listed as questionable, with knee injuries. Defensive tackle Pat Williams (elbow/foot) and cornerback Benny Sapp (ankle/back) are also questionable.

NFL viewership highest in 16 years

NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The NFL has drawn the most viewers

for the divisional round of the playoffs in 16 years, with an average of 33 million per game. The audiences for ArizonaNew Orleans, Baltimore-Indianapolis, Dallas-Minnesota and New York Jets-San Diego were up 15 percent from 28.8 million viewers in 2008. Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cowboys-Vikings game attracted 37.7 million viewers, the most-watched program on television since last Februaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Super Bowl

Shockey misses practice with sore right knee METAIRIE, La. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; New Orleans Saints tight end Jeremy Shockey has missed practice with a sore right knee. Shockey was able to practice the previous two days, but couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s final full workout before Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s NFC championship game against Minnesota. The eight-year veteran from Miami had three catches for 36 yards and a touchdown in last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s victory over Arizona, but hurt the knee on the 17-yard TD reception. During the season, he had 48 receptions for 569 yards and three scores.

Adams remembered for humility at funeral EASLEY, S.C. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Chicago Bears coach Lovie Smith has told mourners at Gaines Adamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; funeral that he will never forget the defensive endâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s humility and work ethic. Former Clemson coach Tommy Bowden delivered the eulogy on Friday and joked that Adams gave him a couple of extra years at the school when his blocked field goal return for a touchdown turned around a 2006 game against Wake Forest. A package of video highlights from Adamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; pro and college career was shown during the 90-minute service at Rock Springs Baptist Church in Easley. About 1,000 mourners filled the sanctuary.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Reggie Wayne is ready to take another trip to Revis Island. The Indianapolis receiver is preparing man-to-man coverage, strong-armed tactics and turbulent conditions with the hope of earning an all-expenses paid trip to Miami. No, this is not just another job for the Colts star and the New York Jets cornerback. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an adventure. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One thing about (Darrelle) Revis is heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

going to challenge you,â&#x20AC;? Wayne said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to make you play your best. I accept that challenge. I feel like heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the best. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to make me play at my best, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be exciting.â&#x20AC;? Wayne, a four-time Pro Bowler, has plenty to prove Sunday in the marquee matchup at the AFC championship game. Revis, runner-up for NFL defensive player of the year, has not only survived matchups against some of the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top receivers this season, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

Wrestling Continued from Page 1B

The Yellow Jackets can relate. Over the last five years, wins have been hard to come by, mostly because committed wrestlers have been hard to come by. But Harry Stryffelerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team had just one forfeit against the Cavaliers and were still in contention for a victory over its rival until Southern Leeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Adolfo Romo won by pinfall to seal the win in the penultimate match of the evening. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve won more matches this year than in the last five years combined,â&#x20AC;? said Stryffeler, whose Jackets were 5-8 pending a second match Friday night against Eastern Randolph. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The big part of that progress is getting kids to stick around. When you get kids to buy into what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when you improve. But wrestling is hard, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to quit. These kids are committed.â&#x20AC;? Haire opened the match with a pin

thrived. His personal check list looks like this: â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Houstonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Andre Johnson, four catches, 35 yards. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; New Englandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Randy Moss, eight catches, 48 yards in two games. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Buffaloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Terrell Owens, six catches, 26 yards in two games. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Carolinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Steve Smith, one catch, 5 yards. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Cincinnatiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chad Ochocinco, two catches, 28 yards in two games. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; And in an abbreviated first round against

in 58 seconds in the 145-pound weight class, giving Southern Lee a tenuous 60 lead. But the Jackets knotted things up the next match with Rosalio Avalosâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; third-period pin. Taking a cue from the opening series, the match remained tight most of the way. Southern Leeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Billy Terhune won by pin at 160 pounds, which was quickly answered by the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fourthranked 171-pounder, the Jacketsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Matthew Johnson-Grant, who won by pin in just 21 seconds. The Cavaliersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Dylan Holder won the only decision in the 41-minute competition, taking a close 9-5 victory for a 15-12 Southern Lee advantage. That slim edge disappeared in a hurry, though, as Lee Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Micah Lawrence won by pin for an 18-15 Jackets lead. Lee County stretched that edge to 24-15 after heavyweight Devante Raglandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 18-second pin, but Southern Lee won by pinfall in the next two matches, from 103-pounder Arturo Aguirre and 112-pounder Ryan Sillaman, handing the lead back to the

BIG OR SMALL . . .

Wayne, three receptions, 33 yards. Revis has allowed only one touchdown all season, yet Wayne may have come the closest to breaking out against him, barely missing a long catch in Decemberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game when Peyton Manning overthrew him by a step on a deep slantand-go route. Wayne also played less time than the others, departing with the other Colts starters with about six minutes to go in the third quarter of Indyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2915 loss.

Cavaliers at 27-24. The lead changed for a fourth time when the Jacketsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Dequan Holt won by technical pinfall for a 29-27 edge, but Southern Lee won the next three matches to carry the contest, getting a pin from Miguel Aguirre at 125 pounds, a forfeit win by Jordan Briscoe and the decisive pin by Romo for a 45-29 lead. Lee Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Daniel Miller won by forfeit at 140 pounds for the final score. It was a satisfying victory for the Cavaliers, and for Gore. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exciting to see the two county programs come together and be competitive and put on a good match,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m really proud of the kids. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been through a lot, but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve worked hard and are now really starting to hit their personal strides.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We won half the weight classes and Southern Lee won half the weight classes,â&#x20AC;? said Stryffeler. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wouldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve liked for the outcome to have been different, but it was a good, competitive match.â&#x20AC;?

Everyone is special to us!

DEAR ABBY

BRIDGE HAND

Chatty churchgoers disrupt sanctuary’s air of reverence DEAR ABBY: Last Sunday, I attended a church service, and the woman and her adult daughter seated behind me would not shut their mouths. All I could hear was the two of them catching up on the week’s gossip. The 5-year-old granddaughter also talked the whole time. I scooted as far over in the pew as possible to avoid hearing the conversation. I go to church for peace, quiet and reflection, and it’s frustrating to hear constant chatter. I’m glad they come to church, but I wish their idea of “fellowship” extended beyond visiting with each other. Would it be rude to turn around and ask these people to be quiet? — PRAYING FOR SILENCE, MOUNT VERNON, OHIO

HOROSCOPES Universal Press Syndicate

Happy Birthday: Don’t let anyone limit you this year when so much depends on taking action and following through. Emotional issues may leave you questioning but you must continue down whatever path you have chosen. Stand by your beliefs and convictions and you will not have regrets. Love is in the stars and an interesting development will lead to a happier and brighter future. Your numbers are 5, 11, 18, 24, 30, 34, 42 ARIES (March 21-April 19): It’s important to keep busy. Get involved in challenging activities that will make you think. Speak from the heart. Showing your true feelings will benefit you. Romance is in the stars so plan something special for the evening hours. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You can persuade others to pitch in and help you achieve your goals. Investigate activities in your community that can enable you to make new friends or professional contacts. Don’t let a mishap cause a rift between you and someone you care about. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You may be upset with someone but, if you are smart, you will avoid getting angry. Offer kindness and generosity. Your ability to handle emotional situations with grace will impress someone you will want to get to know better. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Get involved in groups or with someone who complements your skills. Making some changes to your home or even a move will lift your spirits. Express your dreams, hopes and wishes to someone to whom you are drawn. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don’t take on too much. You will have trouble dealing with emotional issues. Consider your situation and take a serious step toward handling some of your relationships better. Don’t let your personal

WORD JUMBLE

and professional lives interfere with one another. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Get whatever you have to say out in the open. The more you discuss what’s going on and what you want to see happen, the more likely you are to get your way. Travel and socializing will lead to a new interest or new friends. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Do whatever you can to please the people you love the most. A creative spin to an interest you have will make it that much more fun. Don’t get emotional over financial concerns that you cannot change but do budget efficiently. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don’t let things get to you. Being overindulgent or overreacting to situations will not help matters. Take a back seat for now and avoid anyone looking for a fight. Put your time, money and effort into something creative. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Mellow out a little. Try to be more accommodating and you will have a much better chance getting your way. Someone who’s personally interested in you may cause emotional stress. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Your focus should be on home and family and how you can make things better. You have plenty to contend with so don’t jeopardize what’s important to you by taking care of someone else’s problem. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don’t let someone from your past meddle in your life or your current relationship. Emotional turmoil is apparent if you try to hide the truth. Make sure you protect the person who is loyal and always there for you. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): A chance to try something new or to get involved in a project that interests you is likely if you attend events where you can mingle with people who have similar goals. A serious partnership can develop if you are honest and offer an equal split.

DEAR PRAYING: No. How else will they know they’re creating a distraction? This happens in other venues besides church, and by that I’m referring to movie theaters and theaters where actors are performing. It’s not only rude and thoughtless, but can be infuriating. o DEAR ABBY: I am dating a guy, “Ryan,” I like very much. He invites me to his family’s house for dinner often, and this is where the problem lies. I eat everything his mom cooks

If he can’t put a stop to it, the next time his mother gives you a hard time, try this: Tell her you are stuffed and ask if you can please take home a doggie bag because her cooking is so delicious. o

for us and I thank her for it, but she constantly tries to get me to eat more. It has reached the point where she flat-out tells me, “You need to eat more of my food. You didn’t have a large enough serving.” Even though I am already full, I wind up stuffing myself because I feel guilty, and then I’m uncomfortable. I don’t want to eat there anymore to avoid overeating or making Ryan’s mom feel bad. However, I know it means a lot to him that I go. How should I handle her constant badgering? — STUFFED IN TENNESSEE DEAR STUFFED: Ryan’s mother may be well-meaning, but a polite hostess does not pressure a guest in her home the way she does. Have a private chat with Ryan. Tell him plainly how uncomfortable his mother’s badgering makes you feel.

DEAR ABBY: I was poking around your Web site recently, and while looking through the archives I read your columns featuring names for people in various professions like the urologist named Dr. Leake and the dentist named Dr. Payne. I have a suggestion for a fun sequel: How about a list of appropriate car models for different professions — real or made up? I’ll offer a few: The president of American Express driving a Dodge Charger, or an airline pilot driving a Honda Pilot, and — of course — the proctologist who travels everywhere in his Ford Probe. I’ll bet your readers can come up with a bunch. — JAMES H., LAKEWOOD, WASH. DEAR JAMES H.: I’m sure they’re up to the challenge. Allow me to suggest a few: The tailor driving a Dodge Dart, the estate planner behind the wheel of his Subaru Legacy and, of course, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr in their matching Volkswagen Beatles.

Alleged car thief found playing ‘Grand Theft Auto’

Fla. woman just out of prison allegedly steals car

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Sheriff’s deputies in central Florida found a suspected car thief playing the “Grand Theft Auto” video game, and they later charged him with just that. Polk County deputies investigating the theft of a 1998 Dodge Durango arrested 30-year-old Michael Ray Ekes on Thursday. They found the SUV outside a Haines City home. Ekes was inside in the house, playing the popular video game. Ekes was charged with grand theft auto, burglary and drug possession. At the time of his arrest, he was out of jail on bond for another grand theft auto charge. According to Polk County jail records, Ekes remained in custody Friday. Bond had not been set and no attorney was listed.

NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. – A 49-year-old woman has been jailed in Pasco County, accused of stealing a car on her first day out of prison. Theresa Jones faces charges of grand theft of a motor vehicle, cocaine possession and two counts of possession of drug paraphernalia. She was being held on $7,300 bond. Jones was released from Lowell Correctional Institution in Ocala on Wednesday at the end of a two-year, eight-month sentence. Authorities said she met a pen pal and they drove to a New Port Richey hotel. Jones took the man’s car Wednesday night, saying she was going to buy beer. She was located Thursday morning. Jones told authorities that she stole the car so she could get drugs. It’s unclear if she already has an attorney.

Class photo prank spells trouble

Police: Man poses as cop, interferes in sex sting

HOUSTON (AP) — A spelling prank in a class photo for more than 600 seniors in the Houston area led to suspension of three students. Some students wore T-shirts spelling out “CLASS” as part of “Class of 2010” in a formal shot. But KHOU-TV reported in a later informal shot, students representing “C” and “L” moved from the front row, leaving behind an offensive three-letter word. Administrators at Cypress Ridge High School cited the school’s code of conduct and suspended the three students for three days. The penalty began Tuesday. Senior Austin Knight says “C and L ran off” and it’s not the fault of the three students, wearing A, S and S, who also were fined $135. The money will help pay the cost of retouching the photo.

SUDOKU

DETROIT – A 51-year-old Detroit man was arrested for impersonating an officer after police said he interfered with a prostitution sting. Wayne County Sheriff Benny Napoleon said in a release Wednesday that the man pulled alongside an undercover female officer on Detroit’s east side, flashed a badge and yelled “get off the street.” Another man who believed he was speaking with a prostitute drove away. Napoleon said the suspect continued to follow his deputy, but sped off when she told him she was an officer. He was stopped and arrested by other deputies who found a loaded .40-caliber handgun, a Detroit police badge, hats and other clothing with police logos in his pickup. See answer, page 2A

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

We don’t know what Jesus looked like Q: I know you’ve said that the Bible doesn’t tell us exactly what Jesus looked like, but isn’t there a description of Him in the book of Revelation? It seems like I’ve heard this somewhere. -- Mrs. D.Q.

A: Perhaps you’re thinking of the vision God gave to the Apostle John (the writer of Revelation), in which God showed him the heavenly glory of Christ. In this vision John saw Jesus standing in the midst of seven golden lampstands (representing the seven churches to whom John was writing). His image was glorious -- so glorious that John was overwhelmed and fell down at Jesus’ feet as if he were dead. John records that “His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and his eyes were like blazing fire. His feet were like bronze glowing in a furnace” (Revelation 1:14-15). Few artists have even attempted to capture this vision on canvas, because it staggers our imagination. This is not, however, a description of what Jesus looked like while He walked on earth. We don’t know what He looked like then -- and (as I’ve often said) if we did, some people would be tempted to worship that image or make an idol of it. But that would be wrong. Never forget who Jesus was: the Son of God who came down from heaven for our salvation. But never forget either who He is right now: the risen, glorious Son of God in heaven, watching over us and “sustaining all things by his powerful word” (Hebrews 1:3). He is worthy of our worship and our love, because He overcame the powers of evil and hell for us, and opened heaven’s doors to all who put their faith and trust in Him.
