SCORCHER Triple digits made Thursday the hottest day of the year; June shaping up to be hottest ever By ALEXA MILAN

SANFORD — When the construction team from American South General Contractors began its shift at 6 a.m. Thursday, the temperature outside was bearable. But as they worked on the renovations at Lee County High School throughout the afternoon, the heat index crept up to more than 100 degrees. Project superintendent Ernest Renegar said while the heat this summer has been pretty severe, it’s nothing he and his team aren’t used to. “We’ve got a pretty tight schedule out here, but I’m not pushing them as hard as I normally would,” Renegar said. “It’s getting hotter faster, and you don’t have time to acclimate to it.”

High: 95 Low: 73 More Weather, Page 12A

While people who work primarily outside can’t avoid the hot summer sun, the National Weather Service advises people to exercise caution once the heat index approaches 90 degrees. The hottest June on record for central North Carolina was in 2008, but Brandon Locklear, senior forecaster with the Raleigh office of the National Weather Service, said this June could potentially surpass it. “It depends on the timing of this next front and how much rain we have with

DID YOU KNOW? o The hottest June on record for central North Carolina was 2008, followed by June of 1943. o The average temperature in June for central North Carolina is in the 80s. Right now, the temperature is about 10-12 degrees above that. o The hottest part of the day is from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. o During the past 10 years, excessive heat caused more deaths per year than tornadoes, hurricanes and floods. According to the National Weather Service, heat is responsible for an average of 237 deaths per year. o People should exercise caution when the heat index approaches 90 degrees, and a heat index of 105 degrees or higher is considered dangerous. The heat index in Sanford on Thursday afternoon was 102.


GOLDSTON — Days after voters in Goldston passed a $3.7 million bond referendum to build a sewer infrastructure, officials could be moving toward a deal where the small Chatham County town pays to have its sewer treated in Sanford. Goldston, which had an estimated population of below 400 people in the 2000 census, is in need of sewer to replace aging area septic tank systems that some describe as an environmental hazard. Town residents voted overwhelmingly in a referendum Tuesday to move forward with using $3.7 million in bonds to build a sewer transport system, although Goldston would still need another entity to treat the sewage. Town Mayor Tim Cunnup said Goldston has been in talks with Sanford for more than a year to transport sewage to Sanford’s treatment system. “It makes the most sense,” Cunnup said Thursday.

DURHAM — It was a long, hot journey to the front of the line. By Thursday afternoon, Gemma Langeway and Nicole Conover had waited more than 12 hours to get their hands on the iPhone 4, the newest, sleekest version of Apple’s popular smartphone to launch in the market. Like hundreds of others, they had gotten tickets from Apple employees for the phone the night before, camped out with chairs and pillows, and then waited, and waited. And waited some more. “We didn’t think we were going to be waiting here this long,” Langeway said. “Not going to do this again,” Conover said. “I’ve done it now. It’s in the books.”

County cancels hotel tax hike

Holly Springs turns to Harnett for water deal

PITTSBORO (MCT) — The Chatham County Board of Commissioners have decided not to raise the lodging occupancy tax from 3 percent to 6 percent, as thecounty manager’s budget proposed. “The commissioners received valuable feedback from lodging owners and other concerned residents,” Chairwoman Sally Kost said. The room occupancy tax is paid on overnight lodging, such as hotels and inns, with all revenues required to be spent on activities to attract more visitors. The funds are managed by the PittsboroSiler City Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB), which promotes tourism countywide. “We know that Chatham County needs to enhance its efforts to attract more overnight visitors,” said Commissioner Tom Vanderbeck, who is the board’s liaison to the CVB. “The county will work with the CVB to try to find other sources of funding to help make this happen, because it benefits the lodging establishments, retailers and other aspects of our economy when more people come here and stay longer.” Occupancy tax revenues currently support various tourism promotion activities, such as promoting coverage in travel magazines and news media, developing and distributing materials and e-newsletter that promote the county as a desirable destination, hosting an updated website, assisting local tourism-related businesses in their marketing efforts and participating in local and regional partnerships. Vice Chairman George Lucier added that “the county encourages owners of lodging facilities to forward their ideas on what might be done to further promote overnight visitors.” Those with suggestions can contact the CVB at (919) 542-8296 or email

HOLLY SPRINGS (MCT) — Holly Springs is making a move for cheaper water. The town, which has bought its water from Raleigh for a decade, has chosen to draw solely from a cheaper, more plentiful pipeline out of Harnett County. Holly Springs chose not to renew a water purchase agreement with Raleigh. Instead, the town is purchasing water from Harnett County at 57 percent of the Raleigh price: $1.75 per 1,000 gallons, compared with $3.05 per 1,000 gallons from Raleigh, according to data provided by Holly Springs. Discussions to wind down the Raleigh water contract early were prompted by the 2007 drought. Raleigh needed more water for its own customers, and Holly Springs was already finding much cheaper water elsewhere. With the purchase agreement ending, Raleigh will no longer enjoy $34,000 per month from a monthly water access fee paid by Holly Springs, in addition to the actual cost of the water. “This was not a surprise, nor was it a huge hit to our balance sheet,” said John Robert Carman, Raleigh’s public utilities director. But Carman said Raleigh remains interested in selling water beyond its immediate service area. In 1999, Holly Springs purchased up to 1.2 million gallons per day from Raleigh. That amount began to drop steadily after Holly Springs, with more than $6 million in state grant money, completed a much wider pipeline to the Harnett County Regional Water Plant in 2001. The plant, in Lillington, draws from the Cape Fear River. Holly Springs has since purchased up to 2 million gallons of water per day from Harnett County. In recent months, Holly Springs has purchased only nominal amounts from Raleigh. — The Cary News

Group draws the line on illiteracy LUMBERTON (MCT) — If rural communities are going to benefit from growth at Fort Bragg, more residents in the Cape Fear region must be able to at least read and write. That was the message Wednesday during a literacy and lifelong learning summit hosted by the BRAC Regional Task Force, the group charged with preparing Fayetteville and surrounding communities for economic growth from base realignment. “We’re going to need an army to fight this illiteracy battle,” task force official Tim Moore told the crowd of about 160 educators, community leaders and elected officials, who attended the four-hour seminar at the Southeastern North Carolina Agricultural Center in Lumberton. A lack of academic attainment, Moore said, is the “weak link” in the 11county region that experts

say could prosper from growth at Fort Bragg. Cumberland and surrounding counties are expected to see new opportunities in construction, health care and knowledge-based industries in coming years. The summit officially launched the Lifelong Learning and Literacy Project, a regional initiative to support at-risk residents in need of basic education or job training. Attendees of the seminar debated strategies to prepare disadvantaged populations for the looming economic growth. Ideas included investing in nonprofit programs, partnering with community colleges and supplementing early childhood education by reaching out to both parents and children. “We have to get parents reading more and speaking more to their kids,” Moore said. “More early words and words of praise




assistant professor at Fayetteville State University coordinated a comprehensive study that examined the potential effects of BRAC on disadvantaged populations. The study found wide educational disparities across the region. “If we don’t get people the training they need, then they are going to be left behind,” Jackson said, and out-of-town job-seekers will step in. There would be social consequences if that happens, Moore said. “Either we invest now in programs like this, or we pay later in the form of social services, growing prison populations and welfare payments,” he said.

will help close the achievement gap.” The disparities are worse in rural communities, Moore said. Among the 11 counties included in the so-called All American Gateway Region, all but Cumberland have illiteracy rates above 15 percent, according to the N.C. Department of Public Instruction. In Sampson and Montgomery counties, nearly one in four residents are functionally illiterate. Robeson County has an illiteracy rate above 20 percent. Even higher numbers of people across the region lack basic skills needed to compete for knowledgebased jobs likely to be created as a result of BRAC, Pamela Jackson said. The

Obama had no choice in McChrystal issue Our View Issue: Wednesday’s resignation of Gen. Stanley McChrystal, following derogatory comments he made to the press about the administration

Our stance: Pres. Obama had no choice but to accept it. Now it’s time to get back to the mission


he principle of trust is undervalued. As Americans reflect on the war in Afghanistan, trust — and a successful end to the mess there, however that’s defined — seems extraordinarily elusive. For that reason, President Obama had little choice but to accept the resignation this week of Gen. Stanley McChrystal as the top U. S. Commander there. Gen. McChrystal likely would have been fired from the job he’s held — planning and overseeing military action in Afghanistan and helping develop a strategy for economic sustainability — had he not resigned. His meeting this week with President Obama resulted from comments he made for a profile in Rolling Stone

magazine criticizing some administration officials. It’s no secret that when you have a rank, you take your beefs up the chain of command — not down, and certainly not to the press. Understandable frustration with the Obama administration certainly drove Gen. McChrystal’s remarks. Regardless, his choice to violate a tenant of military hierarchy and protocol could not have had no impact at all. And the timing of Gen. McChrystal’s comments couldn’t have been worse, especially given the recent escalation in casualties in the area (combined, thankfully, with everincreasing “high value” targets of our own being taken down). History

is replete with military commanders and commanders-in-chief spouting off at the mouth, expressing disdain for this matter or that. But the unprecedented nature of this conflict and Gen. McChrystal’s willingness to vent to Rolling Stone — not exactly the bastion of insightful war commentary — was unprecedented as well. A firing offense? In most circumstances, no. But there’s been evident distrust between Gen. McChrystal and the President for some time. In some ways, it was an unpardonable offense. Fair debate is one thing. This was another, and because it involved poor judgment, judgment resulted. If there’s anything good to come

out of this, it’s that the transition from Gen. McChrystal to his replacement, Gen. David Petraeus, should be fairly seamless. Gen. Petraeus commanded U. S. forces in Iraq with some success and already has relationships in the region that will enhance his credibility — and trust. Following the appointment, Sen. John McCain said. “We think there is no one more qualified or more outstanding leader than Gen. Petraeus to achieve a successful conclusion of the Afghan conflict.” Now that the “dirty laundry” has been aired, hopefully we can get back to the business of resolution and solutions. With trust hopefully restored, the possibilities of that are greater than ever.

Letters to the Editor We have good animal laws; now we just need good enforcement To the Editor:

Scott Mooneyham Today in North Carolina Scott Mooneyham is a columnist with Capitol Press Association

Making movies


oor Brad Pitt. And what about that sad fellow Steven Spielberg? Times are tough everywhere. They need more money. And thanks to the North Carolina General Assembly, it looks as if the North Carolina taxpayer is going to come through. The state House was expected to pass legislation this week that would extend some tax breaks to a range of industries in an attempt to lure new business to the state. The biggest beneficiary could be Hollywood and the movie-making industry. In total, the tax break legislation could be worth $300 million over five years. But really, it’s a guess. State legislators have felt compelled to increase incentives designed to bring film productions here because other states have been doing likewise. North Carolina recently lost out on some highprofile films shot in other states that offered more lucrative incentives. Just last year, legislators increased incentives for moviemakers by allowing them to take a tax credit worth up to 25 percent of their expenses. The earlier tax credit stood at 15 percent. But the law still caps the amount of tax credit at $7.5 million and limits perperson wages considered in the calculation at $1 million. ... Hollywood wants the caps and wage calculations gone. The legislation being considered would cap total tax credits at $20 million and eliminate the perperson wage limit. No wonder Buzz Lightyear is flying high again. Supporters of the legislation point out that the state only pays if the business comes. There is no real loss to tax coffers, they say, because the money going out only a portion of what is being generated by businesses that wouldn’t otherwise come here. That’s not exactly true regarding the movie-making incentives. The film production companies qualify for tax credits, not deductions, meaning they could theoretically get a rebate regardless of whether they have any tax liability here. A study conducted by the Arrowhead Center at New Mexico State University suggested that incentives offered in that state produced just 14 cents in tax revenue for every dollar offered by the state. Bob Orr, the head of the N.C. Institute for Constitutional Law and an incentive critic, also points out another objectionable aspect to the movie incentives: these aren’t permanent jobs. How much are these film productions really worth to the broader North Carolina economy, to the permanent residents of the state? Or is this just about being able to say that Daniel Day-Lewis romped around the North Carolina mountains wearing buckskins and feathers in his hair? At what level do incentives to moviemakers no longer become cost effective? If we haven’t reached that level, then legislators at least owe it to taxpayers to know when the tipping point will be reached. And if other states want to wholly subsidize Hollywood, so be it.

Trouble with opinion D o we care what the world thinks of us? Should we? A new survey of global opinion is getting the usual respectful attention. The Pew Global Attitudes Project surveyed people in 57 countries and found that President Obama’s approval ratings have slipped a bit among Europeans, Latin Americans, and Asians — though he remains quite a bit more popular than George W. Bush was in his final year in office. (Obama is far better liked abroad than he is at home.) Liberals tend to care a great deal about the way America is perceived globally and will doubtless be gratified that their pinup continues to score well in Brussels and Timbuktu. They remind us that Thomas Jefferson himself bowed to a “decent respect for the opinions of mankind” when drafting the Declaration of Independence. Jefferson had never attended a session of the United Nations Human Rights Council. On June 18, the council voted by acclamation to select Miguel D’Escoto Brockmann to serve on its Advisory Committee. D’Escoto, a defrocked priest who served as foreign minister for Nicaragua’s communist Sandinista government in the 1980s, was fully implicated in that regime’s multiple and grievous human rights abuses. This is not D’Escoto’s first high-level posting at the U.N. He served as president of the General Assembly from 2008 to 2009, during which time he warmly embraced Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and described the U.S. invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq as “atrocities that must be condemned and repudiated by all who believe in the rule of law in international relations.” He branded Ronald Reagan as an “international outlaw” and suggested that Israel is “crucifying our Palestinian brothers and sisters.” Well, perhaps the U.N. Human Rights Council isn’t the best measure of world opinion. Even stipulating that the U.N. represents only the twisted posturing of a largely unelected, corrupt, and cynical collection of thugs, are global opinion polls useful guides to anything? Did you know that 63 percent of Turks, according to one recent survey, approve of polygamy? Americans, one suspects, pay far more attention to these global popularity contests than other nations. Can you imagine Vladimir Putin or Hu Jintao poring over these results? Ah, 50 percent of Germans have a favorable view of Russia compared with only 38 percent of Brazilians! Fifty-eight percent of Indonesians like the Chinese, but only 39 percent of Mexicans feel the same! Summon our image-makers! President Obama’s most concerted effort since taking office has been to improve America’s image in the Muslim world. The president’s first interview was granted to Al Arabiya. He traveled to Cairo to sprinkle the fairy dust, and filmed a fawning New Year’s message to the gangsters who rule in Tehran. He has sent multiple envoys, most notably Sen. John Kerry, to woo Syria’s brutal Bashar

al-Assad. With what result? As this survey indicates, Obama has achieved very little in terms of popularity in Muslim lands. After a short spike following the inauguration, approval of America has fallen fast. The number of Egyptians expressing confidence in Obama fell from 41 to 31 percent, and in Turkey from 33 percent to 23 percent. The Pew report notes that “Last year only 13 percent of Pakistani Muslims expressed confidence in Obama, but this year even fewer (8 percent) hold this view.” Who knows why so many respondents in Muslim countries are disappointed in Obama? It’s possible, based on the way rumors and conspiracy theories metastasize in that part of the world, that many believed our president was actually a Muslim Manchurian candidate and have been disappointed in the reality. It’s possible they expected a complete repudiation of Israel, rather than the icy disdain this administration has shown. It’s hard enough to interpret the views of our own voters — South Carolina Democratic primary anyone? — the motives of foreigners are even more mysterious. OK, popularity is slipping, but perhaps the apology tour/charm offensive has yielded dividends in policy support? Not so much. Syria has clutched Iran even closer to her bosom than before and has recently transferred Scud missiles to Hezbollah in Lebanon — all while the U.S. continues to grovel to al-Assad. Iran is racing toward nuclear status while essentially dropping the fig leaf of “peaceful” energy. Turkey, the Muslim nation with the warmest ties to the West, has accelerated its turn toward jihadism. Brazil has spurned the U.S. by embracing Iran and Turkey. Machiavelli provides ballast for Jefferson: “And that prince who bases his power entirely on ... words, finding himself completely without other preparations, comes to ruin.”

Today’s Prayer Jesus said, “If it is my will that he remain until I come, what is that to you? Follow me!” (John 21:22 RSV) PRAYER: Help me, Lord, to let go of those things inside of me which cause me to want to control others. Amen.

There are two issues on which every dog lover agrees. First, dogs deserve a life in a safe, caring, and healthy environment. Second, those who treat dogs in a negligent or cruel manner should be held accountable. At the capitol this week, Sen. Don Davis held a press conference to discuss Senate Bill 460 — the so-called puppy mill bill — that stalled in the House Finance Committee last year. Davis introduced this bill last spring after a large, substandard kennel in his Wayne County district was raided and closed down. Thanks to North Carolina’s effective negligence and cruelty laws, the kennel owner has since been convicted on cruelty charges. During the press conference, Davis cited a problem common among animal control departments throughout the country: Departments regularly lack the tools needed to go after illegal substandard kennels. The biggest concern we hear from animal control services is a lack of funding. SB 460 attempts to solve this problem by creating a system that requires anyone in North Carolina with 15 intact female dogs and 30 puppies (the bill doesn’t say if the numbers are cumulative or at the same time), to register with the state. The bill then authorizes the state to require counties to investigate any animal care complaints received by the state—but it provides no funding. So beyond establishing another layer of bureaucracy, what does it actually accomplish? The animals that need help will still need it — and our cash-strapped counties will be stretched even further. And unless every county in the state raises taxes significantly, the problem is back full circle: County animal services still don’t have the resources they need to carry out existing laws. There’s no doubt most of us love our dogs and abhor animal cruelty. However, when it comes to legislating this issues, reasonable people must ensure that a new law actually does what it’s supposed to do: protect the health and welfare of dogs and without infringing on the rights of responsible, law abiding citizens. Senate Bill 460 failed that test. We have good laws on the books. What we need now is good enforcement. Let’s devote our limited resources to enforcing existing laws that punish neglect and cruelty, rather than wasting them on confusing and expensive new laws that can’t be enforced.

Sewage Continued from Page 1A

Sanford’s Big Buffalo sewer treatment plant currently has the capacity to treat 6.8 million gallons per day, 70 percent of which is already used by the city in an average day, according to Sanford Public Works Director Victor Czar. Czar said talks with Goldston are still in the

preliminary stages, although such a deal would likely involve the Chatham town paying a per-gallon rate to Sanford to treat the sewer. “Passage of the bond was a big step, so it’s probably going to pick up some momentum here,” Czar said. The project, which is reported to cost an estimated $6.4 million, is planned to break ground next spring providing the financing is in place, Cun-

nup said. “We realize this is the time for us to get this project implemented,” he said. Czar said Goldston would be responsible for collecting the sewage and transporting it to Sanford for treatment. Goldston’s limited flow due to its relatively small population would not make a large impact on Sanford’s treatment capacity, Czar said, adding that it would be the first time the city has agreed to treat another municipality’s sewage. Czar said the city currently sells water wholesale to a handful of larger customers, including Chatham County and the town of Broadway. Plans are currently in the works for Sanford to expand Big Buffalo to treat 12 million gallons of sewage per day.

it, but we’ve got a good chance at making a run of one of the warmest Junes,” Locklear said. The hot weather might bring relaxing afternoons by the pool and an increase in outdoor activities, but it can also cause heat-related illnesses if people aren’t careful. People who are young, elderly, sick or overweight have an even greater risk of acquiring problems from the heat. Since the Lee County YMCA has several day camps for kids, Executive Director Zac West said the staff takes extra precautions to make sure its 110 young campers don’t get overheated. “We go swimming three days a week, so that definitely helps,” West said. “We take extra water jugs out onto the field and take extra water breaks in the shade. But we try to limit time outside to 15-20 minutes once the temperatures reach the 90s.” Like the construction team at Lee County High School, the workers at Absolute Roofing have to bear the scorching temperatures to get their job done. But Supervisor John Hall tries to negotiate with clients to move the roofers’ hours to 5 a.m.-2 p.m. so they won’t be outside when the afternoon sun is at its hottest. “The heat is terrible,” Hall said. “I’ve been doing this 33 years, and this is tremendously bad. Especially with the humidity and everything, it’s much hotter. You’re already sweating when you walk outside.” Hall and Renegar both encourage their teams to drink plenty of water

iPhone Continued from Page 1A

Despite problems with advance reservations, an online leak that unveiled most of the new features, and being the fourth version of a product that has gone from being fairly exclusive when it first launched in 2007 to widespread use, the iPhone 4 still made a splash on Thursday for fans of the product. The line at Apple’s store in The Streets at Southpoint stretched around the building and wrapped around the back. People camped out in chairs in what little shade there was, and Apple employees handed out water bottles and umbrellas.

Store manager Brian Goslin said Thursday’s launch went smoothly despite a rainstorm that knocked out power at the mall the day before. The store had put all other operations on hold for the launch, turning away other customers seeking tech support or wanting to take a look at other products. “It’s very mysterious. There’s a lot of hype behind it. But you don’t know until you get it in your hands,” Goslin said. He had already gotten his iPhone 4, wrapped in a sleek black case. The new iPhones are priced at $199 for the 16 gigabyte model and $299 for the 32 GB model. Ahmad Hariri, a Durham resident, took the day off from work for the launch.

o Heat cramps: Symptoms include dizziness, muscle cramps in the stomach, arms and legs or swelling in the feet, legs or ankles. Stop any physical activity, move to a cool place and drink water. If this doesn’t help, contact a doctor. o Heat exhaustion: Symptoms include thirst, dizziness, weakness, nausea, profuse sweating and cold, clammy skin despite a normal body temperature. If moving to a cool place and drinking water doesn’t help, seek medical attention. o Heat stroke: Symptoms include a body temperature of 103 degrees or more, lack of sweating, dizziness, nausea, throbbing headache, mental confusion, unconsciousness and skin that is red, hot and dry. Heat stroke is life-threatening. Seek immediate medical attention.

and take lots of breaks in the shade, rules that apply to anyone spending extended periods of time outside. But Locklear said unless it’s absolutely necessary, people should avoid being outside from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. as long as the current temperatures hold. “You should really just limit your exposure,” Locklear said. “There’s really no sense in being out there in the heat during the hottest part of the day.” Ayaz Pathan, an emergency medical physician and medical director of the Central Carolina

Hospital emergency department, said one of the most important things people can do in the heat is know when to stop when they start feeling overheated. If people push through strenuous outdoor activities and don’t move to a cool or shaded area, they could develop heat-related illnesses such as life-threatening heat stroke. “It’s really important to stay hydrated and make sure you are well hydrated before going out,” Pathan said. “Trust your body, and if you’re feeling overheated make sure you get in the shade.”

Hariri had made a reservation on June 15, but still waited for hours in the sun for activation. When an Apple employee came by to check ticket numbers, Hariri and others joked around with them. “Not going to kick us out, are you?” Hariri said. Hariri said he had the iPhone 3G, which came out in 2008 and was the second incarnation of the line. The upgrades, such as the new front-facing video chat camera, were enough to prompt him to get a new one. The video chat upgrade and others were leaked on tech blog in April after a programmer with Apple — an N.C. State University grad — left a prototype in a beer garden. Although Apple shut down the prototype remotely and CEO Steve

Jobs personally appealed to the site for its return, Gizmodo took apart the phone and analyzed its components, revealing a new camera feature in front, a new camera flash in the back, a flat back, a stainless steel band, new side buttons, and a higher resolution screen. Langeway, who had waited more than 12 hours in line, said the leak didn’t dampen her excitement over the product. “It increased my interest because you got to see all the new features,” she said. Jeffrey Sinor, a Duke University graduate student on summer break, said he came out because it was an Apple product. “I love technology,” he said. “I wouldn’t do this for any other company.”

Tips for surviving the summer heat o Stay hydrated, especially if you have to go outside. Carry water with you or have some nearby. o Wear lightweight, light-colored, loose-fitting clothing. Dark colors absorb the sun’s rays and make you feel hotter. o If you have to work outside, take frequent breaks in the shade or a cool, indoor area. o Postpone outdoor activities if necessary.

STATE BRIEFS Contractor killed at Bragg identified

Mate: Didn’t know I needed license

FORT BRAGG (AP) — A contractor shot and killed during a training accident at a North Carolina Army post is identified as a retired sergeant. Tennessee-based Echota (ee-CHOH’-tah) Technologies Corp. said Thursday that 57year-old Edward Jenkins died at Womack Army Medical Center on Tuesday. A company spokeswoman said Jenkins had worked for Echota since January providing range maintenance and support at Fort Bragg. She did not know Jenkins’ hometown. The company said 27-yearold Daniel R. Aliff was shot and wounded. He has been released from the hospital. The Army said 25-year-old Pfc. Zachary Tams of Gold Beach, Ore., was grazed in the arm by a bullet. Tams is a Special Forces student at the U.S. Army John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School. He was treated and released from the hospital.

MOREHEAD CITY (AP) — The crew member whose lack of a fishing license cost a boat more than $900,000 in winnings in a North Carolina tournament says he was never told that he needed one. The Daily News of Jacksonville reported that Peter Wann of Alexandria, Va., says he was never told he had to have a fishing license, although he thought he had one. Wann also says the state law and the rules of the Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament are ambiguous. He was a mate on the Citation, which seemed to win the tournament June 14 with its record-setting catch of an 883-pound marlin. Tournament officials later learned that Wann didn’t have the required license and gave the prize to the runner-up. One of the three owners of the Citation says Wann thought the boat had a blanket license that covers the entire crew.

Final negotiations still ‘moving along’ By GARY D. ROBERTSON

UNC-CH considers changing Greek recruiting rules

CHAPEL HILL (AP) — The University of North Carolina is considering changes in how fraternities and sororities recruit members after the shooting death of a Greek leader last year. The News & Observer of Raleigh reported a campus trustee committee on Wednesday began analyzing the Greek system to determine if changes are needed. The review follows the death last summer of Delta Kappa Epsilon president Courtland Smith, who died in a police shooting that authorities said was justifiable. Options include moving recruitment from fall to spring and allowing organizations to add new members all year, rather than limited recruitment and pledge periods. The committee also is considering giving more leeway to fraternities and sororities that follow university rules. The trustee committee will discuss the issue at a September meeting.

Associated Press Writer

RALEIGH (AP) — House and Senate Democrats worked Thursday toward finalizing a roughly $19 billion North Carolina government budget for the coming year but still had to fix another $525 million gap as Congress appears increasingly unwilling to extend a more generous Medicaid formula to the states. The budget negotiators traded offers on how to adjust public education spending in the second year of the two-year budget approved last summer. Once a compromise is worked out, they’ll try to figure out which extra cuts to make if a six-month extension of federal support fails to materialize. Lawmakers want to present the budget, with the contingency plan for additional cuts, to Demo-

cratic Gov. Beverly Perdue for her signature before the new fiscal year begins July 1. A budget bill hasn’t been passed on time since 2003. “There are some issues that remain but movement has been very deliberate but regular, and so I think they’re moving along pretty well,� Hackney, D-Orange, told reporters. “I don’t see that as an insurmountable problem� to completing a budget by June 30, he said. Sen. Linda Garrou, D-Forsyth, one of the leading negotiators, said earlier Thursday the goal remained to finalize the plan by Monday night. North Carolina and nearly 30 other states had counted on a combined $24 billion in Medicaid money to balance their budgets, but more federal lawmakers have become nervous about approving more U.S. government

Atheists put billboard on Billy Graham Parkway


CHARLOTTE (AP) — A statewide coalition of atheists and agnostics has placed billboards in six North Carolina cities to show that nonreligious also are patriotic, including one along a parkway named for a famous evangelist. The Charlotte Observer reported that one sign, with the American flag in the background and the words “One Nation Indivisible,� is on the Billy Graham Parkway in Charlotte.

RALEIGH (AP) — Senate Democratic leaders had planned to push a broad ethics, campaign finance and government reform bill through their chamber this week as time dwindles in this year’s legislative session. But they took it on the chin about the bill — first from Republicans, then good-government advocates, voters and even rank-and-file Democrats. The dissatisfaction forced the leadership on Thursday to remove a provision expanding the state’s voluntary public financing program — a favorite in the campaign reform community — and to delay a judiciary committee vote until at least early next week. “It’s a setback, it’s a

big setback,� said Damon Circosta with the North Carolina Center for Voter Education after the public financing was removed. Senate Majority Leader Martin Nesbitt, D-Buncombe, who is also the committee’s chairman, said the delay isn’t the death knell for a package that lawmakers and Gov. Beverly Perdue contend the public wants to restore confidence in a system met by a series of corruption and campaign finance investigations in recent years. “The members are searching for an answer. That’s what we do in a legislative body,� said Nesbitt, D-Buncombe. “We deliberate and we search for an answer. And we find the correct one we’ll run the bill.� There’s lots in the package that most law-

lobbying laws passed in 2006 with bipartisan support. “Senate Democrats hijacked this bill for their own partisan political gain,� Senate Minority Leader Phil Berger, R-Rockingham, said in a prepared statement before what was supposed to be Wednesday’s floor vote. The state already gives public funds to candidates for appellate courts and state auditor, insurance commissioner and schools superintendent who choose to agree to fundraising limits, but those laws have been passed largely along party lines. The programs are designed to reduce the perception that donors are giving to candidates to curry favor with them if they become elected officials.

makers support. It beefs up penalties for giving large amounts of unlawful campaign contributions, puts more government employees under ethics and gift ban rules, doubles the “cooling-off� period ex-lawmakers and former elected officials must wait to lobby state government and increases access to state personnel records. But Nesbitt and other Democratic authors of the package got hit with complaints as soon as it came out Tuesday in committee. Republicans argued they had no input in the bill and accused Democrats of politicizing ethics changes with a provision expanding the public financing option to candidates in five more Council of State seats.

said Rep. Mickey Michaux, D-Durham, senior co-chairman of the House Appropriations Committee. Perdue tapped into lottery money and at least 18 additional pots of money in spring 2009 to close a shortfall that reached $3 billion. Democrats estimate an expected $800 million shortfall for the coming year would balloon to $1.3 billion without the extra federal dollars. The competing House and Senate plans approved weeks ago reduced the state spending plan already on the books for the coming year by at least $500 million. Republicans argue Democrats could cut more without damaging the most important state services and better prepare North Carolina for a potential $3 billion shortfall in the 2011-12 fiscal year when all federal stimulus money dries up.

spending. Republicans in the Senate late Thursday killed an unemployment benefits bill that also contained $16 billion for the states, $343 million of which would have gone to North Carolina, according to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities. Hackney said many ideas are being discussed about how to close that hole. He said he expected furloughs of state employees would be on the table because so much of state government spending goes to worker salaries. Other cuts could be set to take effect in January, so the state could wait to see if Congress decides to provide the Medicaid money later this year, he said. Lawmakers probably wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t touch the expected $150 million in the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rainy day reserve fund but could tap into cash in state accounts set aside for special purposes,

8A / Friday, June 25, 2010 / The Sanford Herald GULF OIL SPILL


Latest blunder feeds frustration NEW ORLEANS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Earlier this month, BP boldly predicted the oil gushing from the bottom of the sea would be reduced to a â&#x20AC;&#x153;relative trickleâ&#x20AC;? within days, and President Barack Obama told the nation last week that as much as 90 percent would soon be captured. But those goals seemed wildly optimistic Thursday after yet another setback a mile underwater. A deep-sea robot bumped into the cap collecting oil from the well, forcing a temporary halt Wednesday to the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best effort yet to contain the leak. The cap was back in place Thursday, but frustration and skepticism were running high along the Gulf Coast. BPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pronouncements have â&#x20AC;&#x153;absolutely no credibility,â&#x20AC;? Jefferson Parish Councilman John Young said. The latest problem shows â&#x20AC;&#x153;they really are not up to the task and we have more bad news than we have good news.â&#x20AC;? Even before the latest setback, the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worst-case estimates suggested the cap and other equipment were capturing less than half of the oil leaking from the sea floor. And in recent days, the â&#x20AC;&#x153;spillcamâ&#x20AC;? video continued to show gas and oil billowing from the blown-out well. BP officials said they sympathized, and laid out in new detail the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plans to have additional ships in place that can capture even more oil. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For BP, our intent is to restore the Gulf the way it was before it happened,â&#x20AC;? BP PLC managing director Bob Dudley, who has taken over the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spill operations, said in Washington. In other developments: â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The spill began arriving in sheets of oil on the Florida coast, forcing the first closing of a beach in the state

Vessels of opportunity travel through the Perdido Bay near the Perdido Pass in Orange Beach, Ala., Thursday. Some 130 vessels are operating in and around the Perdido Pass to defend the water from oil from the Deepwater Horizon disaster. since the accident more than nine weeks ago, and fouled some of Mississippiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most fertile coastal waters. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The federal judge who struck down the Obama administrationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s six-month ban on deepwater drilling in the Gulf refused to stay his ruling while the government appeals. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Environmental groups asked the court to release additional information about U.S. District Judge Martin Feldmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s holdings in oilrelated stocks. At nearly every important juncture since the Deepwater Horizon rig exploded April 20, killing 11 workers, the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and BPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s estimates on the size of the spill, its effect on wildlife and the time frame for containing it have spectacularly missed the mark. On June 8, BP chief operating office Doug Suttles said the spill should be reduced to a â&#x20AC;&#x153;relative trickleâ&#x20AC;? in less than a week. BP later said it would take more time for the spill to reach a trickle. Obama used the 90 percent figure last week in his first address from the Oval Office and after meeting with BP officials at the White House, saying the company had informed him that


was how much of the oil could be kept out of the water within weeks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It just doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look like thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the cards,â&#x20AC;? said Ed Overton, a retired professor of environmental science at Louisiana State University. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not even close to that, and the word today is that they were capturing less than the day before. I was hoping the president knew something that the rest of us didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know. I mean, he was talking to the big shots.â&#x20AC;? BP said Thursday it was gradually ramping back up to capture about 700,000 gallons a day with the cap, and burning off an additional 438,000 a day using an incinerator ship. Worst-case government estimates are that about 2.5 million gallons are leaking from the well, though no one really knows for sure. By mid- to late July, the company hopes to have the capacity to capture up to 3.3 million gallons a day, if that much is flowing, BP spokesman John Curry said. It cannot all be done immediately, Curry said, because the logistics of positioning four giant ships capable of collecting oil and connecting them to the seafloor are complicated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a limit to the number of ships in the world that do these type of things,â&#x20AC;? he said. None of those efforts is expected to stop the leak entirely. The soonest that would happen is late August, which is when BP says relief wells

being drilled through thousands of feet of rock beneath the seabed will reach the gusher. Dudley said the relief well is progressing very well, and said relief wells are things BP knows how to do. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m confident by the end of August weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have that well killed,â&#x20AC;? he said. Then he knocked on a conference table for good luck. August seems a long way off to many. In Florida, officials closed a quarter-mile stretch of Pensacola Beach not far from the Alabama line when thick pools of oil washed up, the first time a beach in the state has been closed because of the spill. Lifeguard Collin Cobia wore a red handkerchief over his nose and mouth to block the oil smell. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enough to knock you down,â&#x20AC;? he said. In Mississippi, which has so far been largely spared from the spill, a large patch of oil oozed into Mississippi Sound, the fertile waters between the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s barrier islands and its mainland. BP has its supporters, or at least those still giving it the benefit of the doubt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think BP has done more than any oil company has ever done for this kind of spill,â&#x20AC;? said Stephen â&#x20AC;&#x153;Scooterâ&#x20AC;? Resweber, a 62-year-old councilman in Grand Isle, La. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If they are saying 90 percent, they must be pretty confident. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s putting your money where your mouth is.â&#x20AC;?

Sticking points keep work going on Wall St. bill WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; House and Senate negotiators struggled to meet a self-imposed Thursday deadline to wrap up a massive financial regulation bill, with two major sticking points standing in the way of completing legislation that has been one year in the making. Sen. Chris Dodd, D-Conn., chairman of the Senate Banking Committee, huddled with fellow senators to resolve disputes over how far to go in restricting banks from engaging in securities deals. Aiming to break a deadlock, Dodd proposed limits on the ability of banks to carry out high-risk trades or invest in hedge funds and private equity funds. Dodd and House Democrats were still holding talks on whether to force the largest bank holding companies to spin off their business in complex derivatives into separate subsidiaries. Key votes, including those of Sens. Blanche Lincoln, D-Ark., and Scott Brown, RMass., hung on the outcome of the talks. The House-Senate panel has been working into the evening over the past two weeks to resolve differences between the two bills. The legislation aims to avoid a recurrences of the 2008 financial meltdown by requiring a regulatory council to look for threats to the system, by creating a consumer protection bureau, forcing large failing firms to liquidate and policing financial instruments that have been largely unregulated.

Ship that sank 112 years ago found in Lake Michigan MILWAUKEE (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A great wooden steamship that sank more than a century ago in a violent Lake Michigan storm has been found off the Milwaukee-area shoreline, and divers say the intact vessel appears to have been perfectly preserved by the cold fresh waters. Finding the 300-foot-long L.R. Doty was important because it was the largest wooden ship that remained unaccounted for, said Brendon Baillod, the president of the Wisconsin Underwater Archaeology Association. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the biggest one Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been involved with,â&#x20AC;? said Baillod, who has taken part in about a dozen such finds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was really exhilarating.â&#x20AC;? The Doty was carrying a cargo of corn from South Chicago to Ontario, Canada in October 1898 when it sailed into a terrible storm, Baillod said. Along with snow and

Suspected tornado tears through Bridgeport, Conn.

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A suspected tornado tore through Connecticutâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest city Thursday, toppling trees and power lines, shattering windows, and collapsing a building as a powerful line of storms swept across parts of the Northeast. The office of Bridgeport Mayor Bill Finch reported multiple injuries in the city, and rescuers were searching the collapsed building for anyone trapped inside. Finch declared a state of emergency after the fast-moving system of wind and rain. Hundreds of bricks shook loose from buildings, trees split in half and crushed cars, and a billboard hung precariously several stories up over Main Street. Jacqueline Arroyo, 44, said she saw a black cloud and ran inside to her third-floor apartment, where the window exploded. Trees were blown so ferociously they appeared to be coming out of the ground, and people were screaming, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All the wind started coming inside the house. I heard â&#x20AC;&#x2122;boom, boom!â&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was so fast but terrifying.â&#x20AC;?

Indiana woman tries to snatch baby, stabs parents TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Stephanie Foster wanted a baby so badly that when she suffered another miscarriage last fall, she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell her husband. Instead, police say Foster, 34, spent months stuffing a pillow inside her clothes to feign pregnancy, forging birth certificates and attending baby showers as she plotted to kidnap a newborn to pass off as her own. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to tell her husband because he was so elated that they finally were going to have a child,â&#x20AC;? Vigo County Sheriff Jon Marvel said. When her husband asked to feel the baby move, Foster would jostle a paintbrush sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d slipped inside the pillow, Marvel said. Police say Fosterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s elaborate hoax ended violently Wednesday when she stabbed a couple at their home as their month-old baby slept in the living room. Now, the baby is staying with relatives while his parents recover, and Foster sits in a county jail cell awaiting formal charges. Foster, who does not yet have an attorney, appeared by video Thursday in Vigo Superior Court, where Judge Michael J. Lewis ordered her held without bond. She said little during the hearing as investigators described a woman who spent months planning how to make her fake pregnancy look real.

NATION BRIEFS Mortgage rates at lowest point since mid-1950s

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Mortgages are cheaper today than theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been in a halfcentury. If only most people had the job security, the credit score and the cash to qualify. The average rate for a 30year fixed loan sank to 4.69 percent this week, beating the low set in December and down from 4.75 percent last week, Freddie Mac said Thursday. Rates for 15-year and five-year mortgages also hit lows. Rates are at their lowest since the mortgage company began keeping records in 1971. The last time they were any cheaper was the 1950s, when most long-term home loans lasted just 20 or 25 years. Almost no one expects falling rates to energize the economy, though. Sales of new homes collapsed in May after an enticing tax credit expired. Rates have fallen over the past two months as investors have become nervous about Europeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s debt crisis and the global economy and have shifted money into safe Treasury bonds. The demand has caused Treasury yields to fall. Mortgage rates track those yields.

Blago irked by â&#x20AC;&#x2122;thankfulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; message from Obama aide

CHICAGO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Rod Blagojevich became bitter when told that he would receive thanks â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but nothing else â&#x20AC;&#x201D; from Barack Obama in return for naming a friend of the newly elected president to the Senate, according to an FBI tape played Thursday at the former governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s corruption trial. Blagojevichâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trial proceeded after Judge James B. Zagel turned down a defense request for a delay following a new Supreme Court decision in a different case limit-

ing the use of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;honest servicesâ&#x20AC;? law â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the basis for some charges against Blagojevich. With former Blagojevich chief of staff John Harris on the stand, prosecutors played an FBI tape on which Harris is heard telling the governor that the Obama camp sent word that it would be â&#x20AC;&#x153;thankful and appreciativeâ&#x20AC;? if Valerie Jarrett were appointed to the Senate seat. Jarrett, a Chicago businesswoman and former aide to Mayor Richard M. Daley, was a longtime Obama family friend and the presidentelect wanted her to have the Senate seat he was leaving. Blagojevich had allegedly sent word through a labor union official that he would appoint Jarrett if Obama agreed to appoint him as secretary of health and human services.

Alaska geologist survives 2 attacks by grizzly ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The bearded, sandyhaired geologist was on a job in the remote Alaska wilderness when a grizzly bear suddenly emerged from the brush just yards away. So Robert Miller did what he was trained to do â&#x20AC;&#x201D; he fell to the ground, clasped his hands around his neck to protect it and played dead. The bear wandered away and Miller thought he was in the clear. Pulling himself to his knees, he found out how wrong he was. The bear charged again and â&#x20AC;&#x153;this time he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want me to move. He was really thrashing me around,â&#x20AC;? the 54-year-old said Wednesday from his hospital bed, his right arm and leg swathed in bandages, his left ear crisscrossed by stitches. Miller had been out scoping possible mining projects Sunday for his employer, Millrock Resources Inc., in a remote valley of the Alaska Range mountains near the Iditarod Trail.

Obama stresses no discord By ANNE GEARAN AP National Security Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; No more discord in the Afghanistan war command, President Barack Obama vows. With Gen. David Petraeus in charge, the president said Thursday heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assembled the team that will take the U.S. through the months ahead â&#x20AC;&#x201D; by all expectations the make-or-break stage of the conflict. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am going to be insisting on a unity of purpose on the part of all branches of the U.S. government,â&#x20AC;? the president said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our team is going to be moving forward in synch.â&#x20AC;? Obama said he does not anticipate further firings beyond Gen. Stanley McChrystal, the top war commander hired a year ago to turn around a war then sliding into quagmire. He was fired Wednesday for sniping at civilian war bosses in a magazine article. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m paying very close attention,â&#x20AC;? Obama said of his war council. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And I will be insisting on extraordinary performance moving forward.â&#x20AC;? The Taliban-led insurgency has dug in for a long fight in crucial southern Afghan provinces where McChrystal focused the conflict. Petraeus is expected to continue that campaign, but he will have flexibility to make changes as he sees fit, his civilian and military bosses said Thursday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When he gets on the ground, he will assess the situation for himself, and at some point he will make recommendations to the president,â&#x20AC;? Defense Secretary Robert Gates said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the end of the day, the president will

Both in Washington and Kabul, U.S. officials tried to stay on-message, insisting that the sudden sacking of McChrystal does not reveal a crisis of confidence in a war that Gates asserted is no longer a stalemate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I do not believe we are bogged down,â&#x20AC;? Gates said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I believe we are making some progress. It is slower and harder than we anticipated.â&#x20AC;? Obama and his top security advisers also underscored that U.S. forces will begin to come home from Afghanistan next summer, and that the commander taking over for the disgraced McChrystal is pledged to that timetable. Petraeus told Congress last week that he would recommend delaying the start of a withdrawal planned to begin in July 2011 if conditions in Afghanistan warranted it. He also said then that he supports the pullout plan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gen. Petraeus understands that strategy because he helped shape it,â&#x20AC;? Obama said Thursday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will not miss a beat

because of the change in command in the Afghan theater.â&#x20AC;? Obama added that the July 2011 date is the start of the withdrawal, not a moment that the U.S. quits the country entirely. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be switching off the lights and closing the door behind us,â&#x20AC;? Obama said. The date has always left some wiggle room. The administration says the scope of the drawdown will be determined by how safe Afghanistan is, and how capable the government. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton seconded the vote of confidence for Petraeus, who will go before the Senate Armed Services Committee for a hasty confirmation hearing Tuesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He is completely familiar with all of the plans that have been put forth,â&#x20AC;? she said of Petraeus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And he is going to provide the kind of continuity of leadership that this mission needs and deserves.â&#x20AC;? Americans are increasingly impatient with the course of the nearly nine-year war. June is the deadliest month of the war so far, with 80 foreign

troops killed, of whom 46 were Americans. Gates said it was Obama who suggested asking Petraeus to take the job, which is technically a demotion from his current post as head of U.S. Central Command. Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said he takes responsibility for hand-picking McChrystal, but he and Gates said the generalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s intemperate remarks in Rolling Stone magazine were an aberration. But McChrystalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team did have run-ins with civilian overlords seen as meddlesome or out of touch. Civilian leaders, for their part, have sometimes struggled to find footing in a war plan that stresses development and civilian input but is almost entirely staffed and financed by the military. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We clearly are at an enormously difficult time in the execution of the strategy,â&#x20AC;? Mullen said. He travels Thursday to Afghanistan and Pakistan, with a message that the United States is holding steady. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In any operation, you make adjustments,â&#x20AC;? Mullen said, adding that he thinks it will be the end of this year before itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clear whether the effort to pacify Kandahar is working. Mullen, sounding dejected, said McChrystal rightly took the blame for the challenge to civilian authority posed by the remarks he and his aides made in Rolling Stone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Honestly, when I first read it, I was nearly sick,â&#x20AC;? Mullen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Literally, physically, I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe it. So I was stunned.â&#x20AC;? A full Senate vote on Petraeus could follow later next week.

Sticking points keep work going By JIM KUHNHENN Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; House and Senate negotiators struggled to meet a self-imposed Thursday deadline to wrap up a massive financial regulation bill, with two major sticking points standing in the way of completing legislation that has been one year in the making. Sen. Chris Dodd, DConn., chairman of the Senate Banking Committee, huddled with fellow senators to resolve disputes over how far to go in restricting banks from engaging in securities deals. Aiming to break a deadlock, Dodd proposed limits on the ability of banks to carry out highrisk trades or invest in hedge funds and private equity funds. Dodd and House Democrats were still holding talks on whether to force the largest bank holding companies to spin off their business in complex derivatives into separate subsidiaries. Key votes, including those of Sens. Blanche

Lincoln, D-Ark., and Scott Brown, R-Mass., hung on the outcome of the talks. The House-Senate panel has been working into the evening over the past two weeks to resolve differences between the two bills. The legislation aims to avoid a recurrences of the 2008 financial meltdown by requiring a regulatory council to look for threats to the system, by creating a consumer protection bureau, forcing large failing firms to liquidate and policing financial instruments that have been largely unregulated. By Thursday, Dodd was beginning to voice frustration with the difficulty of finding agreement to secure the 60 votes he needs to pass the bill in the Senate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At some point people have to let me know whether or not theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re actually going to be there,â&#x20AC;? Dodd said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sort of wait and hope theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be there. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to produce results and I have to produce the votes.â&#x20AC;? After hours of private negotiations, Dodd appeared to have found some common ground on

banking trade limits. The Obama administration has pushed for the restrictions on bank trades, a proposal especially championed by former Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker. Doddâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposal would permit banks to carry out trades designed to hedge against market fluctuations. The proposal also would bar banks from betting against their clients on certain investments deals. Bank holding companies also could invest in hedge funds and private equity funds but would be limited to investing no more than 3 percent of the capital in the hedge fund or private equity fund. There are no such conditions on banks now. Banks were adamantly opposed to the restrictions and sought the exception for hedge funds and private equity funds. Volcker has urged lawmaker not to insert exemptions in the rule. House and Senate negotiators were checking off agreements on smaller differences between the bills.




Companies ramp up spending, fuel growth WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Companies are spending again, and that could mean better economic times ahead. Businesses have invested more money in machinery, computers, steel and other metals in three of the past four months. The uptick is fueling economic growth in the second quarter and may lead to more jobs later this year. The rise in corporate spending comes at a critical time for the recovery. The unemployment rate has been stuck near double digits all year. And while the pace of layoffs slowed last week, the number of people seeking first-time jobless benefits remains about the same as in January. Consumers are more cautious about spending, the housing market is slumping without homebuying tax credits and the European debt crisis has rattled investors. But none of that seems to have dampened companiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; outlook. Corporate investment â&#x20AC;&#x153;is not only growing but accelerating, which is an encouraging sign that business remains in an expansive mindset,â&#x20AC;? Michael Feroli, an economist at JPMorgan Chase, wrote in a note to clients. Overall, orders for durable goods â&#x20AC;&#x201D; those expected to last three or more years â&#x20AC;&#x201D; fell 1.1 percent last month, the Commerce Department said Thursday. But that was largely the result of a drop in demand for commercial aircraft. Excluding the volatile transportation sector, orders rose 0.9 percent after falling in April. Contributing to the strength was a 2.1 percent increase in business spending. In the first five months of the year, business orders for equipment and other capital goods

Companies are parting with more cash to replace outdated equipment and software and to make their workers more productive, said Brian Bethune, chief U.S. financial economist at IHS Global Insight. They are exporting heavily to developing economies in China, Brazil and India, Bethune said. In particular, they are shipping construction and mining machines and oil and gas equipment. Demand for those products benefits heavy equipment manufacturers like Caterpillar Inc., General Electric Co. and Cummins Inc. Businesses are also buying more computers and networking equipment. New orders in that category rose 2.5 percent in May, the department said. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boosting Cisco Systems Inc., the leading manufacturer of computer networking equipment. The company said last month that its revenue jumped 27 percent in its most recent quarter. It expects the rapid sales growth to continue into the summer. To meet that demand, Cisco added 1,000 jobs in the spring after laying off 2,000 last year. Some economists

revised their forecasts for growth upward in second quarter Thursday after reading the Commerce Departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report on durable goods. Ben Herzon, a senior economist at Macroeconomic Advisers, said the firm now expects the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gross domestic product to increase by 3.8 percent, up from a previous estimate of 3.4 percent. Companies are likely to spend at a healthy clip for the rest of this year, Herzon said, which could contribute to more job growth in the second half of the year. Employers have been reluctant to hire even as the economy has recovered. But â&#x20AC;&#x153;the longer the recovery goes, the more likely it is that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll add jobs,â&#x20AC;? he said. Still, growth in the 3 percent to 4 percent range is relatively slow for a recovery, particularly after a steep recession. It isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quickly reducing the unemployment rate, currently 9.7 percent. After the last severe downturn in the early 1980s, GDP grew at rates of 7 to 9 percent for five straight quarters. As a result, the unemployment rate dropped from 10.8 to 7.2 percent in 18 months.

Stars getting too old for juvenile humor


t is hard to tell whether the title to “Grown Ups” is ironic or just simply wrong-headed. While age figures into what passes for a plot in this cinematic equivalent of an induced coma, maturity — both onscreen and in the production room — certainly does not. “Grown Ups” is “The Big Chill” for imbeciles, starring a coterie of clowns that might fancy themselves as some comedic Rat Pack but are really just an ex-“SNL”ers version of the Blue Collar Comedy troupe. Then again, what else would you expect from Adam Sander’s increasingly irksome Happy Gilmore Productions and its hack director of choice, Dennis Dugan? There’s a hierarchy to the quintet of cronies starring here: Sandler and Chris Rock are top-rung moneymakers (Rock particularly ought to know better), Kevin James (blatantly subbing for the late Chris Farley) is the upand-comer, while David Spade and Rob Schneider are hanging onto the caboose of this gravy train. Together, they play childhood friends brought back together in their New England hometown (identified onscreen as “New England”) over Independence Day weekend upon the passing of

Judge orders Lindsay Lohan to answer questions


BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Lindsay Lohan will have to answer more questions about a 2007 car chase that landed her in jail, including inquiries about drug use at the time, a judge ruled Thursday. Lohan’s answers will be used in a civil lawsuit filed against the actress by a woman who claims she suffered emotional distress after the incident, which prompted a criminal case that Lohan still haunts the “Mean Girls” star. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Richard A. Stone ordered Lohan to sit for a two-hour deposition next month. The judge approved a request by Lohan’s attorney to allow the questioning to happen after July 6, when a criminal judge will decide whether Lohan violated her probation by missing a court hearing in May. Tracie Rice, who was a passenger in a car being chased by Lohan in July 2007, sued the actress for assault, negligence and intentional infliction of emotional distress a month later. The case is scheduled to go to trial in late July. Lohan was charged with seven misdemeanors stemming from her arrest after the chase and another incident a few months earlier.

In this film publicity image released by Columbia Pictures, from left, David Spade, Kevin James, Chris Rock and Adam Sandler are shown in a scene from “Grown Ups.” their junior high school basketball coach. Spade is Marcus, the hopeless bachelor; Schneider plays the creatively named Rob, a New Ager on his third marriage to a granola granny wife; James is Eric, whose daughter has severe social dysfunctions and a wife (Maria Bello) still breastfeeding their fouryear-old son; Rock plays house-husband Kurt to his thrice-pregnant and career-driven wife (Myra Rudolph); and Sandler is Lenny, a jet-setting Hollywood agent with a Chinese au pair, spoiled kids who order Voss water at greasy burger joints, and a fashion designer wife played by Salma Hayek. Uh, guess

again which actor is also the film’s producer… After their coach’s funeral, the five amigos plus families decide to spend a few days lounging around the lakeside lodge of their youth. Actually, they spend the time forcibly laughing at each other’s zingers, most of them thinly veiled jabs at their real-life personas — Spade is called “the third Olson twin”; the portly James is congratulated for finally reaching a B-cup. And, when they aren’t playfully jabbing each other, Sandler and Co. lean against the comic crutches they packed for the trip: children, old people, scantily-clad women, animals, white

trash, and lots and lots of scatology. Of course there’s a trip to the water park, and of course there’s a gag revolving around the guys peeing in the kiddie pool. Tack on some half-written sideshow about a rematch against their basketball rivals from 30 years ago, and that’s it…that’s the “storyline.” Even the usually reliable Rock is relegated to calling his annoying, bunion-afflicted motherin-law names like “Toe-be Bryant” and “Toe-J Simpson.” Hardy, har, har. I did like the brief argument between Rock and opposing ex-baller Tim Meadows about who is the town’s black guy and which one

is the town’s “other black guy,” a not-to-subtle reference to their erstwhile token status while cast members on “SNL.” Otherwise, the jokes land with the nimbleness of lead weights. The whole sorry spectacle smacks of a money grab, with the actors getting both a paycheck and a subsidized Massachusetts vacation. Mostly, however, “Grown Ups” is a string of barely realized setups, with only a late, lazy stab at moralizing more infuriating than the truckload of stupid humor that precedes it. The film’s stars may be getting older, but their comedy remains as juvenile as ever.

CULVER CITY, Calif. (AP) — Dr. Dre and Timbaland went back to school Wednesday night. The rapper-producers shocked students when they appeared at a Culver City High School graduation party. Dr. Dre introduced Timbaland, who performed the tunes “The Way I Are,” “Promiscuous Girl,” “Carry Out” and “Say Something” on a stage in the school’s gymnasium. Students invited had no idea the hip-hop masterminds were the guests of honor. “When we walked in, we were like, ’Whoa. Is this a second prom?”’ said 17-yearold junior Saul Salmeron. The surprise performance was sponsored by HewlettPackard, Interscope Records and Beats by Dr. Dre, who have partnered with the aim of improving digital sound quality on PCs. The promotional event, which was recorded for an online documentary, also featured free food, photos and a raffle of HP gear. The company said it was donating $10,000 worth of computer equipment to the school.

TORONTO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; World leaders trickled into Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest city on Thursday for global economic talks, but their resolve seemed less focused than at earlier meetings held in the fearful atmosphere of the worst downturn since the 1930s. New leaders in Australia, Japan and Britain could alter the dynamics. With recoveries in their countries proceeding at starkly different paces, leaders of the 20 largest industrial and developing nations found themselves at odds over how to strike the right balance between continued government stimulus spending and confronting ballooning budget deficits. Divisions also persisted on proposals for a global bank tax and over how much multinational banks should be required to keep on reserve as a cushion against loan losses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The most pressing issue is sustainable economic growth,â&#x20AC;? said Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finance minister, Jim Flaherty. But he told a news conference before a speech to the Toronto Board of Trade that this means different things in different parts of the world. He noted that Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy is fundamentally strong and that its banks weathered the financial crisis without failures or government bailouts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are the envy of the world,â&#x20AC;? he said in voicing opposition to a global bank tax.

Report: Pollutants taint whales even in remote regions AGADIR, Morocco (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Sperm whales feeding even in the most remote reaches of Earthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oceans have built up stunningly high levels of toxic and heavy metals, according to American scientists who say the findings spell danger not only for marine life but for the millions of humans who depend on seafood. A report released Thursday noted high levels of cadmium, aluminum, chromium, lead, silver, mercury and titanium in tissue samples taken by dart gun from nearly 1,000 whales over five years. From polar areas to equatorial waters, the whales ingested pollutants that may have been produced by humans thousands of miles away, the researchers said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These contaminants, I think, are threatening the human food supply. They certainly are threatening the whales and the other animals that live in the ocean,â&#x20AC;? said biologist Roger Payne, founder and president of Ocean Alliance, the research and conservation group that produced the report. The researchers found mercury as high as 16 parts per million in the whales.

Obama seeks to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;resetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; relations By BEN FELLER Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The president of the United States and the president of Russia enjoyed quite a summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s day on Thursday: Grab some burgers, joke about Twitter, take a walk in the park. No summit, no sanctions, no weapons treaty. Yet they did strike a deal on chicken exports. This is the new day, on intentional display, between President Barack Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not all about nukes. Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first time hosting Medvedev at the White House will probably be remembered most for the extent to which they got along like a couple of buddies. You want fries with that? Yes, they did. In fact, they shared some. It was all a metaphor for two countries that were once at risk of Cold War annihilation, and just two years ago were back to cold shoulder animosity. And for Obama, on an oppressively hot day, in the midst of a most difficult week, it amounted to a surprising chance to relax. The buzz around the White House centered much more on the presidentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; unexpected jaunt for cheeseburgers to Rayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hell Burger in Virginia â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Medvedev took jalapenosâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; and less about the many substantive matters they discussed. Even Obama acknowledged the topics seemed a bit foreign. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You know, sometimes itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s odd when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re sitting in historic meetings with your Russian counterpart to spend time talking about chicken,â&#x20AC;? Obama conceded in describing an agreement to export U.S poultry products to Russia. Yet he said it was, in fact, a multibillion-dollar matter and a sign of something even greater:

President Barack Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev walk through Lafayette Park in Washington, Thursday from the White House to a attend a meeting at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. the ability of the United States and Russia to get beyond nuclear security, one of the areas in which both sides have made concrete progress in recent months. Now they can talk more about trade, technology, space and sports. The smiling Obama was a man in contrast to the one of day earlier, when he was forced to sack the commander of U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan, Gen. Stanley McChrystal, for a magazine story in which the military leader and his aides had mocked and ripped administration leaders. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We may be able to finally throw away those red phones that have been sitting around for so long,â&#x20AC;? Obama said, evoking the symbol of scary U.S.-Russia relations. Obama said that was doable because both men have Twitter accounts, although he flubbed the line, calling the social networking site â&#x20AC;&#x153;Twitters.â&#x20AC;? Upon questions from reporters, Obama said there will be no more firings in the chain of

command over Afghanistan, although he will be sternly monitoring his team. Medvedev seemed reluctant to wade into the topic, recalling the ultimately disastrous Soviet invasion of Afghanistan decades ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have quite friendly relations with President Obama,â&#x20AC;? he deferred, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but I try not to give pieces of advice that cannot be fulfilled.â&#x20AC;? The presidents showed solidarity on a range of matters: n Coordinated humanitarian aid for Kyrgyzstan, wracked by deadly unrest in the wake of the presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ouster there. n Russiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s push to join the World Trade Organization, which has stalled. Obama endorsed wholeheartedly the idea as a matter of world interest. n Concerted efforts to get lawmakers in both countries to ratify a new deal that would reduce the nuclear weapons of both nations. Where there was conflict, even that was framed in an upbeat way. The United States is still at significant odds with Russia over the

fallout of its war with Georgia just two summers ago, back when tensions were soaring. Obama used code, saying â&#x20AC;&#x153;we addressed those differences candidly,â&#x20AC;? and Medvedev agreed. Both said they could thrive even despite disagreements. And nothing says harmony like busting out of the White House for burgers. The photo of the day showed Obama and Medvedev squeezed into a table with their interpreters, chowing down at the restaurant. â&#x20AC;&#x153;An interesting place, which is typically American,â&#x20AC;? is how Medvedev described it later in an East Room news conference. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Probably itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not quite healthy. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very tasty. You can feel the spirit of America.â&#x20AC;? Obama and Medvedev had met six times before in spots across the globe, including last summer in Moscow. Yet this was the first time in 17 months that Obama had played host to the Russian president at the White House, and Medvedev got a rare bit of special treatment.

GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) — Brett Favre says he can still play at a “high level” if he returns to the Vikings for a 20th NFL season. Favre has not yet said if he plans to play, but he’s not sounding like a retired quarterback. Favre told the Sun Herald on Thursday on the Mississippi newspaper’s website he would “love to go beat the Saints” in the season opener Sept. 9. New Orleans beat Minnesota in the NFC championship game in January. The Sun Herald also reports Favre is healing on schedule from surgery on his left ankle, and cycling is part of his rehab. Favre’s agent Bus Cook was asked by The Associated Press if the 40-year-old quarterback has made a decision on playing. His reply? “Nope.” The Vikings declined comment.

Williams stung by Wear transfers By BRIANA GORMAN


NEW YORK (AP) — John Wall is ready to go to Washington and clean up the Wizards. And he’ll have more backcourt help when he gets there — whether or not Gilbert Arenas is still around. The Wizards selected Wall with the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft and agreed to a trade for another guard Thursday, hoping they’ve found players who can help them quickly bounce back from a season that was embarrassing on the court and in the locker room. “I feel like I had pressure since I became No. 1 in high school and was one of the top players,” Wall said. “I always got there hungry wanting to fight hard and compete in every game, so when I step on the court I’m going to take on any challenge there.” The SEC player of the year is the first Kentucky player ever chosen first overall. He goes to a team still reeling from Arenas’ season-ending suspension for bringing guns into the team locker room. Wall could replace Arenas as the Wizards’ point guard, or perhaps play alongside him in a potential high-scoring backcourt. He’ll try to become the third straight freshman point guard to win Rookie of the Year honors after Chicago’s Derrick Rose and Sacramento’s Tyreke Evans — who like Wall also played for John Calipari. The pick came shortly after a person familiar with the deal told The Associated Press that the Chicago Bulls had agreed to trade veteran guard Kirk Hinrich and the 17th pick in the draft to the Wizards. Hinrich is a solid veteran defensive guard who could help with Wall’s transition to the NBA. Wake Forest forward Al-Farouq Aminu was drafted by the Los Angeles Clippers with the No. 8 selection while North Carolina forward Ed Davis went 13th to Toronto.


CHAPEL HILL — Before this May, North Carolina’s Roy Williams had had just three players transfer from his programs at Kansas and UNC in 21 seasons as a head coach. It was a track record Williams said he was proud of, so it’s no wonder he admitted during his summer press conference Thursday he’s still trying to come to grips with the transfers of freshmen big men David and Travis Wear. “I have not spoken to them and I haven’t dealt with it very well,” Williams said. “It was a hard thing. It was a Williams surprise. But you have to move on. They have to move on and we do too.” The brothers stunned Williams on May 5 when their father called asking for a release from their scholarships. David and Travis had both averaged roughly 10 minutes a game in 2009-10 and were expected to see a larger role this season with the loss of forwards Ed Davis and Deon Thompson. The two have since announced they will be attending UCLA in the fall where they will sit out a year per NCAA rules. “It hurts because I lost two kids that I really enjoyed [and] it hurts because we lost two kids who were really going to be important to our program,” Williams said. “I had also decided not to recruit a big man in the class behind them because I didn’t want to over-recruit, so we lost two guys out of that class and we didn’t have anybody behind them. So I haven’t dealt with it very well personally or for our program.” So just how wounded is Williams about the Wears decision? When a reporter started to ask a third straight question about the twins at the start of the press conference, Williams apologized for interrupting but had said he

Isner victorious in marathon match By HOWARD FENDRICH AP Tennis Writer

WIMBLEDON, England — When The Match That Would Not End finally did, at 70-68 in the fifth set, after a record 11 hours, 5 minutes spread over three days, the customary handshake between opponents simply would not suffice. So when John Isner of the United States won the longest match in tennis history and went to the net to greet Nicolas Mahut of France, who — for lack of a better word — lost Thursday at Wimbledon, Isner pulled Mahut in for a hug. “You know,” Isner told the crowd moments later, “it stinks

someone had to lose.” Quite true. There were 980 points overall, and Mahut won more, 502-478. There were 711 points in the fifth set, and Mahut won more, 365-346. But Isner won the most important point of all: the last one, which happened to be a rather nondescript backhand winner down the line. It allowed Isner to break Mahut’s serve for only the second time all match. That also was the only service break of the seemingly interminable fifth set, ending a run of 168 consecutive holds that began in the second set, all the way back on Tuesday.

Rose, the Memorial winner three weeks ago who failed to qualify for the U.S. Open last week at Pebble Beach, missed a 12-foot birdie putt on 18, leaving him tied with morning starters Padraig Harrington, Charlie Wi and Mathew Goggin. Harrington birdied his first three holes and was 4 under at the turn. Goggin made his run on the back nine, birdieing Nos. 13, 15 and 17. Wi had four back-nine birdies.

Smith regrets flag football injury CHARLOTTE (AP) — An apologetic but defiant Steve Smith expressed regret Thursday for breaking his left forearm playing flag football, while also taking shots at critics who questioned the Carolina Panthers receiver’s judgment. Smith called into Charlotte radio station WFNZ-AM, acknowledging he had been a regular participant in an adult flag football league at a Charlotte YMCA. He was injured Sunday when he slipped and used his left arm to brace his fall. Smith broke the same arm, but in a different spot, at the end of last season. “Obviously, I put my team and myself in a bad situation by playing,” Smith said. “But that wasn’t my intention and wasn’t what I thought the outcome was going to be.”

Playing football out of the team setting and participating in risky activities are usually banned in most NFL contracts. The Panthers aren’t expected to take serious action against Smith, who will miss much of training camp but is expected to be ready for the regular-season opener Sept. 12 at the New York Giants. “I wish I could take it back,” Smith said. “But I am a regular guy outside of football. I mow my grass, too. I can get my finger chopped off fixing my lawnmower. I could roll my ankle playing tag or slip-n-slide with my kids. In hindsight, yeah, I won’t do it again. But I was just having fun, playing with some guys.” Smith, who said he played quarterback and defensive back in the league, was quick to bring up the

subject many wanted answered: Why would a four-time Pro Bowl selection due $5.75 million this season play in a flag football league full of weekend warriors? “If you get out of your little shallow box, you would understand it’s more than just money for me in this game,” Smith said. “This is what I grew up playing, and it was my offseason. Until freaking Father’s Day, nothing had happened.” The fiery Smith, who has been suspended twice in his NFL career for punching teammates, led the league in catches, yards receiving and touchdown catches in 2005. Despite Carolina’s quarterback problems last season, Smith had 65 catches for 982 yards and seven touchdowns before he was injured in Week 16.

LPGA TOUR Kerr in 3-way tie for lead at LPGA Championship PITTSFORD, N.Y. (AP) — Cristie Kerr shot a 4-under 68 on Thursday for a share of the first-round lead with Stacy Lewis and Seon Hwa Lee in the LPGA Championship, the LPGA Tour’s second major of the season. Relying on her clutch putting, Kerr had five birdies and a bogey on the Locust Hill Country Club course in suburban Rochester. She won the LPGA State Farm Classic two weeks ago for her 13th LPGA Tour title. Inbee Park, Mika Miyazato and Lindsey Wright opened with 69s in the round that was hampered by gusting wind and a heavy downpour that briefly delayed play. Juli Inkster, a 31-time career winner, celebrated her 50th birthday by shooting a 71. She was tied for 11th.


Brewers complete sweep of Twins MILWAUKEE (AP) — Yovani Gallardo did not allow a baserunner until Drew Butera singled with one out in the sixth inning, and the Milwaukee Brewers went on to complete a sweep of the Minnesota Twins with a 5-0 victory Thursday. Prince Fielder and Rickie Weeks homered as the suddenly resurgent Brewers chased struggling Twins starter Nick Blackburn (6-5) from the game in the fourth inning. Gallardo (7-3) tied a career high with 12 strikeouts and gave up only five hits as he recorded his second career shutout. Rays 5, Padres 3 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.

Strasburg throws strikes as Natsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; bats go cold By JOSEPH WHITE AP Sports Writer

United Statesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Landon Donovan, left, scores a goal past Algeria goalkeeper Rais Mâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Bolhi, front right, and Algeriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Madjid Bougherra, back right, during the World Cup group C soccer match between the United States and Algeria at the Loftus Versfeld Stadium in Pretoria, South Africa on Wednesday.

Unburdened at last, Donovan seizes opportunity

IRENE, South Africa (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The words came haltingly, then not at all, as Landon Donovan tried to explain how much the goal meant to him. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the greatest player the United States has ever produced and, at times, its greatest disappointment. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spent the last four years trying to claw his way back from heartbreaks both personal and professional. And for all the introspection and work heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done, he and the Americans were on the verge of yet another World Cup flameout. So yeah, he celebrated like a 6-year-old on a sugar rush when he scored the goal that will be remembered as one of the biggest in U.S. soccer history. And when it finally all sank in, no way he could â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or would â&#x20AC;&#x201D; stop the tears. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the past, a moment like that wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have felt the same, it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have felt as good,â&#x20AC;? Donovan said Thursday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you put yourself on the line, and you risk things that you werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t willing to risk before and then youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re rewarded for it, it feels incredible.â&#x20AC;? Donovanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s evolution is fascinating, on the field and off. He is the rare star athlete who will give not only a glimpse into his deepest emotions, but a front-row seat. He talks candidly about his struggles on the field and his uncomfortable transition to U.S. soccerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s poster boy, and freely admits therapy has helped him work through personal failings laid bare by his crumbling marriage. He is, finally, a man at peace. But he also knows he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be whole without success on the soccer field. On Saturday, the Americans play Ghana â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the team that knocked them out four years ago â&#x20AC;&#x201D; with a chance to make at least the quarterfinals for only the third time in history. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a failure if we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t win Saturday, but thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s such a massive opportunity to do something so much more special,â&#x20AC;? Donovan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And I really want to emphasize that to everybody, and make sure we understand that.â&#x20AC;? For as much as the Americans like to talk about team and doing something special together, everyone knows they will only go as far as Donovan leads them. Playing with the unbridled joy and confidence only a 20-year-old can have, he scored twice at the 2002 World Cup as the Americans made a stunning run to the quarterfinals, and was selected as best young player of the tournament. Burdened by the expectations and the hype four years later, he all but disappeared as the Americans stumbled out of Germany without a victory. Just about

everyone deserved a piece of the blame, but Donovan took the majority of criticism. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was not a good day. For me or for the team,â&#x20AC;? Donovan said when asked about the Ghana game in 2006. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What I remember most personally was my tentativeness and the immediate feeling afterward of the finality of it, and how disappointing that was.â&#x20AC;? His two unsuccessful stints in Germany only fueled the negativity. Signed by Bayer Leverkusen at 16, he never got in a game in two years and was shipped to the San Jose Earthquakes of Major League Soccer in 2001. He went back to Leverkusen in January 2005 and made nine appearances, but lasted only two months before running back to MLS. Put it all together, however, and Donovan seemed like just another spoiled athlete whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d failed to live up to his promise. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He got criticized quite heavily after the last World Cup, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worked hard and pushed himself to get to this level,â&#x20AC;? Carlos Bocanegra said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice for him to get the winner for us. It kind of shows his work has paid off, his mentality has changed.â&#x20AC;? Donovan gives much of the credit for his growth to his estranged wife, Bianca Kajlich. Kajlich is an actress, and seeing her have to battle for even the smallest roles made him realize he was squandering his talent. What he had was a gift, not a burden. Though Kajlich and Donovan broke up last July, the split was a turning point. The two are still on friendly terms â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Donovan blew a kiss into the TV camera for her during his postgame interview Wednesday night â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but he realized it was time to take a long, hard look at himself. The change is noticeable to anyone whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s watched Donovan in South Africa.

At A Glance Defending champ Italy eliminated from Cup JOHANNESBURG (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Defending champion Italy was eliminated Thursday from the World Cup with a humbling 3-2 loss to Slovakia, which advanced. Paraguay 0, New Zealand 0 POLOKWANE, South Africa (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Paraguay was held to an uneventful 0-0 draw by New Zealand, but still won its World Cup group and moved into the round of 16. Netherlands 2, Cameroon 1 CAPE TOWN, South Africa (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Netherlands produced its first goals of flair and finesse to beat Cameroon and set up a second-round match with Slovakia. Japan 3, Denmark 1 RUSTENBERG, South Africa (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Spectacular first-half goals by Keisuke Honda and Yusuhito Endo helped lift Japan, sending the Japanese into the round of 16 at the World Cup. Obama congratulates U.S. soccer team WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; President Barack Obama called the U.S. World Cup soccer team Thursday to congratulate it on an â&#x20AC;&#x153;extraordinary victoryâ&#x20AC;? this week and to wish the team luck in the next round. The game was poorly timed for the president, comingas he accepted the resignation of Gen. Stanley McChrystal, who had served as his top commander in Afghanistan. Obama was meeting with McChrystalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s replacement, Gen. David Petraeus, in the Oval Office when he heard staffers in the West Wing erupt in cheers when U.S. midfielder Landon Donovan scored the winning goal. During his call with the team, Obama congratulated Donovan on the goal.

WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Maybe Stephen Strasburg throws too many strikes. Huh? It takes once-in-a-generation talent to draw once-in-a-blue-moon criticism, but about the only thing to parse from the 21-year-old rookieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first loss is that he had the audacity to throw strikes on 0-2 counts to back-to-back batters in the fifth inning. Both hitters managed to get bat on ball for opposite field singles â&#x20AC;&#x201D; one of them barely making contact with the very end of the barrel â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to produce the only run in the Washington Nationalsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 1-0 loss to the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday night. If thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what it takes for Strasburg (2-1) to lose, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to happen very often. Maybe only when the planets are aligned a certain way. Or when miracle goals are scored by Americans in stoppage time at the World Cup. Or when tennis matches last 10 hours at Wimbledon. Or when the Nationals are the team he relies on for support. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve scored only one run in his last two starts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He did a terrific job again,â&#x20AC;? Nationals right fielder Roger Bernadina said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t score any runs.â&#x20AC;? These are the numbers from the Strasburgâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defeat, coming in his fourth major league start: six innings, nine hits (all singles), one run, nine strikeouts, no walks, 75 strikes in 95 pitches. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now I realize everything people have been talking about,â&#x20AC;? Royals right fielder Jose Guillen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m like: â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s this guy?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking about him like heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a Hall of Famer.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the way people have been talking about him, and today I realized that kid is pretty good.â&#x20AC;? And Guillen actually had a good game. He got two hits against Strasburg, including the one that drove in the gameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only run. After the game, Strasburg and manager Jim Riggleman were quizzed about the youngsterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s propensity for throwing strike after strike after strike. Strasburg hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t walked a batter in three of his four starts. Instead of wasting an 0-2 pitch, he tries to throw another one in there â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and perhaps doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always put it exactly where

Washington Nationals starting pitcher Stephen Strasburg throws during the second inning of a baseball game against the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday in Washington. he wants. Too many strikes? Sounds like a good problem to have. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He really throws such quality strikes,â&#x20AC;? Riggleman said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not an issue at this point.â&#x20AC;? Strasburg was his best own defender. Without sounding too boastful, he said neither of the critical 0-2 offerings in the fifth inning were bad pitches. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really hit the ball hard,â&#x20AC;? Strasburg said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;except for a couple of times they just found the holes.â&#x20AC;? The one purpose Strasburgâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loss could serve might be to temper the talk of his chances of appearing in the All-Star game. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a topic thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s already generating considerable debate, even though his 1.78 ERA comes from only four games against favorable opposition: The teams he has faced were a combined 50 games under .500 as of Thursday morning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;His stuff is definitely All-Star stuff,â&#x20AC;? Kansas City manager Ned Yost said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;His numbers arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t yet.â&#x20AC;?

I apologize for cutting you off but that’s all I’m talking about that.” But Williams is still waiting for one of those players

Essentially, the match lasted as long as it did for two reasons: Neither man could break the other’s serve, and Wimbledon does not employ a tiebreaker in the fifth set. “Especially once the match got past, you know, 25-all, I wasn’t really thinking,” said Isner, who led the University of Georgia to the 2007 NCAA team tennis championship. “Hitting a serve and trying to hit a forehand winner is the only thing I was doing.” When it did conclude, Isner dropped down to the court, rolled on his back, and kicked his legs in the air. After the players briefly spoke, Mahut sat in his changeover chair,

in his program to arrive. Justin Knox, a 6-9, 240-pound transfer from Alabama, will not join the Tar Heels until he finishes his undergraduate requirements in Tuscaloosa, Ala., this summer. The experienced big man _ 6.3 points, 3.7 rebounds in 19.8 minutes last season _ is expected to help fill the void left by the Wears’ departure. “He has an opportunity to be extremely important and not just be a guy standing over there clapping, so I don’t see any negatives myself,” Williams said.

Williams said immediately after he found out the Wears would be transferring, the entire UNC coaching staff began trying to find some players to fill out the frontcourt. He said they identified six or seven possible players but were fortunate to land Knox in the end. “He’s a wonderful kid,” Williams said. “He has experience, he has size and he’s played in big arenas and in big games. We have a tremendous need. “

stared blankly ahead, then draped a purple-and-yellow Wimbledon towel over his head. “It’s really painful,” Mahut said. The 23rd seeded Isner’s 6-4, 3-6, 6-7 (7), 7-6 (3), 70-68 victory — yes, that’s 70-68, not 7-6; sure reads like a typo, huh? — was merely a first-round match between two relatively unheralded players. Yet it will be remembered far more distinctly, and discussed far more frequently, than many a Grand Slam final, not because of the stakes, certainly, or the quality of play, necessarily, but because of all the math involved. “The numbers,” Mahut said, “speak for themselves.” To wit: The 183 games and total time, both far beyond the existing records of 112 and 6:33. The 138

games and 8:11 in the fifth set alone, also records. Isner’s 112 aces in the match, and Mahut’s 103, both much higher than the old mark of 78. The combined 490 winners (Isner had more, 246-244) and only 91 unforced errors (Isner had more, 52-39). “We played the greatest match ever, in the greatest place to play tennis,” said Mahut, who is ranked 148th and went through qualifying. “I thought he would make a mistake. I waited for that moment, and it never came.” Instead, Mahut faltered — 46 hours, 39 minutes after the first point was played — and later acknowledged his abdominal muscles were aching Thursday. Both men showed remarkable resilience, even if they moved increasingly slowly.


The Sanford Herald / Friday, June 25, 2010 / 5B



Woman wants to believe sex offender’s claim of innocence DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend, “Claude,” and I are deeply in love. He’s devoted to me and my son. He brings me candy and flowers and takes me out. He includes my son in everything we do. My problem is, he recently mentioned that he is on the national sex offenders list. He says he didn’t do it and that he was framed. It happened years ago — if it happened at all — and he doesn’t like to talk about it. Abby, I need your advice. Should I believe him or run the other way? It scares me to think that I am putting my son in danger, but then again, I don’t believe Claude did what they say he did. Please help me. — MOM IN THE SOUTH

HOROSCOPES Universal Press Syndicate

Happy Birthday: Emotional issues will be brought to the surface this year. Deal with pressing matters head-on. Allow others to know what you are thinking and you will be surprised by the support and help you receive. Change is upon you, so embrace what lies ahead with open arms. Your numbers are 3, 7, 12, 23, 29, 33, 47 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Travel for business or educational purposes will help you administer your goals but, before you set sail, make sure you have personal paperwork in order. Someone older and wiser will offer suggestions. A move may entice you but weigh the pros and cons. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don’t let a complaint from someone you are close to slow you down. Recognition and applause will be given when you complete what you are doing. Doing things in secret may not be your first choice but, for now, it’s your only choice. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Keeping the peace at home may be difficult if you don’t agree with what other family members are doing. Don’t get worked up over nothing. Do what works for you and let everyone else do the same. Take an extended weekend if possible. CANCER (June 21-July 22): You may be faced with unexpected responsibilities. Approach what needs to be done with enthusiasm. Once you’ve done what’s required of you, set your sights on ways to improve your personal, professional and physical well-being. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Travel, networking or getting together with friends will all lead to something that interests you. Attend a reunion or get together with someone from your past. Abide by the rules of the road if you are driving. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t get involved in


an emotional melodrama going on at home. Avoid any overindulgence and overspending. It will be difficult to keep a secret. Take care of any financial matters before they escalate. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Actions, rather than words, will be your best course of action, especially if someone is being argumentative. You may feel insecure about your current position. Volunteer and a full time opportunity will present itself. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You should take care of business and finalize any deals, settlements or contracts. Communication will be your best asset and can lead to worthwhile changes for the future. Promote what you have to offer. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Love, adventure and intrigue are in the stars. Take advantage of what’s offered and do what you can to enhance your looks, your surroundings and your love life. Combining the old with the new will lead to good times and success. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): You can make money if you align yourself with the right person and you stick to facts. You have plenty to bring to the table. Your enthusiasm and energy will help you turn any mediocre idea into a five-star enterprise. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You’ll have to make a few adjustments to the way you do things if you don’t want to fall behind. Any opportunity to get involved in a moneymaking enterprise should be considered. Volunteering is fine as long as you aren’t taken for granted. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Take it easy and evaluate your relationships with friends, lovers or colleagues. It is apparent that someone may be limiting what you can and cannot do. Once you have a sense of how you can handle some of the people in your life, you will feel much better about your future.

DEAR MOM: The first thing you should do is check the national sex offenders database. Find out if Claude should, by virtue of the fact that he is a convicted sex offender, even be around children. Learn the facts of what happened from the authorities in that community. And then, think with your head instead of your heart and put your son’s welfare above everything. o DEAR ABBY: You frequently say children are not responsible for their parents’ divorce. My grandmother said my parents married because my mother was pregnant with my sister. They

who will help you put any questions about your self-worth to rest once and for all. o

Abigail Van Buren Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

divorced because I was born. What do we say to our parents, knowing they divorced because Mom didn’t want us? (I have met her only twice, and she’s not around to defend herself.) I am 25 and have had self-esteem problems my entire life. — STILL FEELING SAD, MESA, ARIZ. DEAR STILL FEELING SAD: I’m sorry you have had so little contact with your mother. Had it been otherwise, you might have discovered that your parents’ divorce had nothing to do with you as a person and everything to do with her and your father’s level of maturity at the time and the quality of their marriage. I strongly suspect that other factors in your mother’s life made her unable, rather than unwilling, to nurture. If it’s possible for you to contact her, you should do so. And if not, discuss this with a therapist

DEAR ABBY: My son is married to a beautiful Japanese woman who is well-educated and speaks both Japanese and English fluently. They have a daughter, “Mari,” who is 2 1/2 and just starting to talk. My concern is whether my granddaughter should be taught English or Japanese first. Mari already speaks and understands a little of each language, but I’m worried that she may grow up confused while trying to communicate with others. I feel she should learn English first. Then, as Mari grows older, her mother can teach her the Japanese language. Am I being concerned about something I shouldn’t be? By the way, there is no family conflict here. I’m just concerned that my granddaughter will grow up confused. — HAPPY PAPA IN CALIFORNIA DEAR HAPPY PAPA: Worry no more. Children absorb languages like sponges absorb water. Mari is a lucky little girl to be learning Japanese and English so young. If she’s able to practice both, they will become interchangeable for her. So stop worrying, and if you’re receptive, your granddaughter may teach you a few phrases.

Limping man surprised to discover gunshot wound PEORIA, Ill. (AP) — Tracy Durham remembers hearing the pop. But the gunshot wound the Illinois man discovered after a neighbor asked about his limp? That was a surprise. The 48-year-old Durham told police he thinks he was shot by a friend during a party late Sunday at his home. Police say Durham recalled calling the friend’s girlfriend ugly.

Christ is our hope of true peace Q: I know you’ve said that we’ll never have world peace until Jesus comes again, but does that mean governments and diplomats shouldn’t at least try to work toward a more peaceful world? Surely God wants us to work for peace, doesn’t He? -- Mrs. K.W. A: Yes, of course He does -- and we ought to be praying more for those who are trying to bring peace to our world. The Bible says, “Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness” (James 3:18). Jesus said, “Blessed are the peacemakers” (Matthew 5:9). The problem, however, is that even our best efforts fail to bring lasting peace. Tragically, as soon as one conflict ends another seems to take its place. Our world is still filled with conflicts and wars, and no matter how much we yearn for peace, it still eludes us. Yes, we should strive for peace in every way we possibly can -- but we also must face that fact that we will always have “wars and rumors of wars” until the end of this present age (Matthew 24:6). But this isn’t the whole story! Some day, the Bible says, Jesus Christ -- the Prince of Peace -- will come again, and when He does, He will establish His kingdom of perfect righteousness and peace. We can barely imagine what that will be like -- but it’s true, and He alone is our hope of lasting peace. In the meantime, does Christ’s peace rule in your heart? And are you seeking to bring His peace to those around you? Put your life into His hands, and then ask Him to help you bring His peace to others.

The author Tolstoy once wrote in a letter, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The goal of our life should not be to find joy in marriage, but to bring more love and truth into the world. We marry to assist each other in this task. The highest calling is that of the man who has dedicated his life to serving God and doing good, and who unites with a woman in order to further that purpose.â&#x20AC;? Of course, Mr. Tolstoy did not mean we should not be happy with our mate. Happiness finds a couple when they unite as one spirit in Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s service. In the marriage vows themselves, we hear â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;Śand the two shall be as one.â&#x20AC;? Had God felt that Adam could have accomplished his mission on earth alone, He would not have given him Eve as a helpmate. The Creator chose to unite the two. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is not good that man should be alone. I will make him a helper fit for him.â&#x20AC;? (Genesis 2:18) In this month of happy unions, may you remember that God makes a good marriage great! Worship together and stay together.
