THE HARD PART For the dozens of teens looking for roles in Temple’s summer production of ‘Jungle Book,’ the audition can be nerve-racking By CHELSEA KELLNER

The hardest part of the audition are those six steps to center stage, as 42 sets of eyes in the audience watch and wait. Each cast member of the Temple Theater Youth Conservatory has their own technique to handle the pressure. Victoria Davis, 17, does a goofy dance behind the curtain, then bops out onstage with her head held high. Madison Cole, 8, sings a happy song in her head as she walks. Casey Yoder, 9, makes a peace sign behind her back, “because my mom does it, and so it makes me smile.” Thursday was audition day for the company’s production of “The Jungle Book,”

Ham radio demonstration planned for today

This weekend the public is invited to check out Sanford’s ham radio operators demonstrating their capability to aid emergency services when disaster strikes. From 2-4 p.m. Saturday at the Northview Fire Station at 104 Perkinson Road, operators will show the new capabilities of ham radio, including the newest digital and satellite capabilities, as well as historically used techniques like Morse code. Local Boy Scouts will assist. The national event is sponsored by the ARRL, the national association for amateur radio. Using only emergency power, amateur operators will construct emergency stations in parks, shopping malls and schools across the country. Operators will demonstrate how hams can send messages in modern ways, like e-mail and making radio calls to cell phones, even when phone systems, internet and electricity infrastructures are damanged or destroyed. — By Chelsea Kellner


Church vandal suspect charged

PITTSBORO — A teenager who lived just behind a Chatham County church that was vandalized with satanic and obscene messages on June 5 was charged Thursday in the case. The Chatham County Sheriff’s Office charged Joseph Marshall Polinger, 19, of 28-A Woodbridge Drive, Chapel Hill, with felonious breaking and entering a place of worship, felonious larceny, felonious possession of stolen goods and injury to real property. He was released on a $25,000 unsecured bond and is scheduled to appear in Chatham County District Court in Pittsboro on July 26. “He had been a suspect for a while,” said Maj. Gary Blankenship of the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office. Polinger knew he was a suspect and had already hired a lawyer to make arrangements with the Sheriff’s Office to turn in the stolen items and to turn himself in to authorities, Blankenship said. Polinger returned the sound system and a wooden cross that were stolen from the Lighthouse Baptist Church, located just south of the Orange County line in Chatham County on U.S. 15-501. Polinger has implicated an accomplice, and the sheriff’s deputies were trying to locate him Thursday evening, Blankenship said. When investigators were called to the church on June 5, they were shocked to see that satanic and obscene messages had been sprayed on the church’s walls, hymn books had

been destroyed and windows and a toilet had been broken. The sound system and the church cross were missing. Blankenship couldn’t say whether the satanic vandalism was done because the suspects have satanic beliefs or whether they did it as a shocking prank. “They could have done it for kicks, but we don’t really know that,” he said. Polinger lives in a neighborhood just behind the church. — Durham Herald-Sun


Deputies charge 4, seize cocaine CARTHAGE (MCT) — Moore County deputies have arrested four men they say are part of a drug ring that has been dealing cocaine in Moore and the surrounding area for several years. But the arrests and seizure of nearly a kilogram of cocaine won’t put much of a dent in the drug supply in Moore County, said Capt. Jerrell Seawell, head of the Sheriff’s Office narcotics unit. Undercover officers investigated cocaine dealing in western Moore County for about 1 1/2months after receiving a tip. On Tuesday, deputies arrested 33-year-old Victoriano Velasco Cruz and charged him with 10 counts of various drug trafficking and possession offenses, as well as maintaining a vehicle to keep a controlled substance. He was placed in the Moore County Detention Center with bail set at $250,000. They also arrested 34year-old Isabel Rangel Rosales and charged him with three counts of conspiracy to traffic in cocaine. His bail was set at $150,000. — Fayetteville Observer


Usher’s ceremony slated for Sunday The Sanford District Usher’s Anniversary and March will be held at 3 p.m. Sunday at Macedonia AME Zion Church with Dr. Ocie M. Brown, Presiding Elder of the Sanford District. Music will be provided by Robert Wood, Elder Deon Allbrooks and Abraham’s Seed Choir. The church is located at 1225 Gulf Road in Gulf.


San-Lee Dancers to perform Tuesday The San-Lee Dancers will perform Tuesday at the Enrichment Center, 1615 South Third Street, from 6-9 p.m. The cost is $5 per person (and food to share at intermission).

The sponsor is Help-You-Sell Auction and Real Estate.

Barker, advocate for children, dies GREENVILLE (MCT) — Bob L. Barker thought he could best help North Carolina by caring for its children. Before representing Lee, Harnett and Wake counties in the state Senate from 1973 to 1976, the father of two boys and two girls helped create the Boys and Girls’ Club of Raleigh. Barker died Tuesday at Pitt Memorial Hospital in Greenville. “Bob believed in leveling the playing field,” said Kaye Barker, his wife of 32 years. “He was as enthusiastic about helping an individual elderly person

as he was the governor.” But of all North Carolinians, Barker most enjoyed caring for disadvantaged children, his wife said. The son of the late Millard R. Barker Sr. and Mabel Gray Barker, Bob was born in Harnett County and grew up in Raleigh, attending Millbrook High School and North Carolina State University. Ralph Capps, president of the Boys and Girls’ Clubs in Wake County, said Barker played a pivotal role in making the organization a reality, working beside

39 other individuals on the Raleigh Club’s first board of directors. “From that one little club started in 1967, we have seven Boys and Girls’ clubs serving 4,309 children in Wake County,” Capps said. “We would not have had such success were it not for that level of engagement.” Barker also fought for East Carolina University to get its School of Medicine. “Senator Barker was a fine man who served our state with distinction,” said former Gov. Jim Hunt in a statement.

“I am grateful for his leadership and for his courage to support, in the face of opposition, the creation of ECU’s School of Medicine.” Through his hard work for North Carolinians, Barker left a lasting mark, said Senate leader Marc Basnight. “He was a passionate, caring individual who had an incredible love affair with the state of North Carolina,” Basnight said. “He was a great friend and a close ally on issues pertaining to the needs of the state.”

County manager says new detention center won’t raise taxes

Biotech firm to phase out 150 jobs in Durham

CARTHAGE (MCT) — A $40 million detention center and Sheriff’s Office planned for downtown Carthage can be financed, built and paid for without a tax increase, the Moore County manager said Tuesday. If the county acts soon, Cary McSwain added, it can save millions of dollars by taking advantage of low interest rates. On Monday, the Board of Commissioners voted 3-2 to pursue tax-exempt limited obligation bonds to finance the jail and about $10 million in water and sewer projects in other parts of the county. The vote came despite nine county residents -- most from Carthage -- speaking against the project at the meeting. Limited liability bonds do not require the county to raise taxes if it cannot pay the debt. As such, the commissioners can issue the bonds without a public vote. McSwain said those bonds -- $50 million in all -- allow the county to move swiftly and bring in the money while interest rates are low and contractors are hungry for work, potentially saving the county millions of dollars. Bert Patrick, a Carthage resident and staunch opponent of the jail, doesn’t buy that explanation. She and other Carthage residents who spoke against the jail said the commissioners are making an end-run around voters and pushing through a project that would not pass a referendum. After emotional testimony Monday night by several Carthage residents, commissioners Vice Chairwoman Cindy Morgan proposed putting the issue on the Nov. 2 ballot. Chairman Tim Lea joined Morgan, but the motion failed. Commissioner Nick

Picerno’s motion to secure funding for the new jail and public safety building then passed by a 3-2 vote, with commissioners Larry Caddell and Jimmy Melton joining him. Picerno said he isn’t, in principle, opposed to sending the bond issue to voters. But he said, “That time is passed.” The county has spent nearly $3million to buy the Grimm property next to the existing jail and draw architectural plans, he said. Commissioners need to move relatively quickly to secure the bonds while interest rates are likely to remain below 5 percent and take bids that are likely to be lower because contractors need new projects in a slumping economy, he said. The $40 million figure approved for the jail is an upper limit, McSwain said, and he expects the actual costs to come in significantly lower, though he declined to give a figure. The public safety complex would include 33,500 square feet of space for the Sheriff’s Office, 11,000 square feet for emergency medical services, dispatchers and the fire marshal, and 110,500 square feet for the jail itself. Though commissioners split on how to fund the project, they seemed to agree the county needs a bigger jail to meet the growing number of inmates awaiting trial in Moore County. The existing jail, which was last renovated in 1995, is crowded and outdated, Sheriff Lane Carter said. The 110-bed jail is often over capacity. That has led to creative use of space. Sgt. Victor Moore, for example, sits in a cramped converted closet with such poor air circulation that he spends his day with a fan blowing on his legs under his desk.

DURHAM (MCT) — Gilead Sciences’ decision to shut down its research and development operations in Durham will eliminate about 150 local jobs by the end of the year. Local employees of the biotechnology company were told Wednesday that the company has decided to consolidate its research-and-development work on experimental treatments for hepatitis B and C at its headquarters in Foster City, Calif. Previously, the company divided that work between Durham and Foster City. No employees were laid off immediately; spokeswoman Amy Flood said the local operations will be phased out through the end of the year. In addition, about 30 employees will be offered jobs in California. The Triangle’s strength in the pharmaceutical sector has left it vulnerable to a wave of cutbacks in the industry, which is struggling with intense competition from cheaper generic drugs and a dearth of new blockbuster drugs. Last month Pfizer announced that it was eliminating 400 jobs at its vaccine manufacturing plant in Sanford. That news could have been much worse, because on the same day Pfizer said it would shut down eight of its 78 factories around the globe. “We’re definitely disappointed when consolidation in the mature segments of the drug industry forces people to reduce local employment,” said

Sam Taylor, president of the N.C. Biosciences Organization, an industry trade group. Nevertheless, Taylor said, scientists who are experienced in developing new medicines are in demand among local pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies. “Any decision involving people is a difficult one,” said Gilead’s Flood. “This is a group that has made a significant contribution.” Gilead entered the region in 2003 when it acquired Triangle Pharmaceuticals for $464 million. At the time Triangle, was one of the region’s most promising young drug companies. It was formed in 1995 by a group of former Burroughs Wellcome executives led by the late David Barry, who was a co-inventor of the first major AIDS drug, AZT. Tragedy struck the company in 2002 when Barry died of a heart attack at age 58. Triangle’s drug-development efforts led to Gilead’s AIDS drug Emtriva, which won regulatory approval months after Gilead acquired the business. Emtriva was subsequently combined with a second Gilead medication, Viread, to form the AIDS drug Truvada. Gilead has about 4,000 employees, and its drugs for AIDS and other diseases generated $6.47 billion in revenue last year. In the first quarter it generated revenue of $2.09 billion, up 36 percent. Net income for the quarter was $854.9 million, up from $589.1 million a year earlier.

State sewing seeds of the future along I-40 Richmond County Daily Journal (MCT) — To a motorist, it probably looked like a bed of wildflowers. But along Interstate 40, what you see may be the seed of the future. The Department of Transportation is working on a pilot program that would grow biofuel crops on the highway right-of-way. The flowers in question are from canola plants. Instead of just mowing down grass, the DOT harvested the seed from the plants about two weeks ago and will use them to make fuel for diesel engines. The program is in partnership with N.C. State University and is modeled after a program called Freeways to Fuel in Utah.

NCDOT and N.C. State experimented with sunflowers last year as the program’s inaugural crop. The project averaged almost 550 pounds of sunflower seed per acre. After processing, it is possible to generate about 40 gallons of biodiesel from each acre of sunflowers. N.C. State researchers calculated that the cost of biodiesel production would equal the cost of purchasing gasoline or diesel fuel, and have less environmental impact. Biodiesel crops require minimal maintenance, along with possessing aesthetic value. For now, it doesn’t appear the pilot program is coming to Richmond County but we don’t see why it couldn’t.

The N.C. program is in its second year, and this year’s crop, totaling just under 10 acres, consisted of four plots of canola grown along roadways in Raleigh, Faison, Mount Airy and Rutherford County. N.C. State will process the crop using specialized equipment designed to extract oil from the canola seeds to make biodiesel. “The biodiesel program is one example of our department’s overall commitment to creating a more livable, sustainable future in North Carolina,” said Transportation Secretary Gene Conti. “We are constantly exploring innovative ways to realize this vision, whether we are using alternative fuels like biodiesel and

solar power ... or recycling construction materials.” “Biodiesel plants like canola and sunflower produce beautiful blooms that make our roadsides more attractive, and beyond that, provide a source of cleaner-burning fuel,” said Ted Sherrod, who chairs the biofuels research project. The reality is with larger roads comes the job of maintaining the thousands of acres of right-of-way around them. Traditionally that’s been involving grass that must be mowed several times a year and produces no real value. The biofuels program, if it works, sounds like a win-win for the environment and the taxpayers.

Letters to the Editor An open letter to the president, in time for Independence Day

D.G. Martin Columnist D.G. Martin is host of UNC-TV’s North Carolina Bookwatch

Queen of Palmyra


ifty years ago, Harper Lee’s “To Kill a Mocking Bird” gave us a sympathetic hero who seemed to stand up against the worst features of our region’s social system. The story, narrated by his adoring daughter Scout, told us how Atticus Finch, the principled attorney, defended an unfairly accused African American. The book attacked the ugly racism of rednecks and the Klan. Its warm, finely crafted story engaged us and pushed us a gentle, positive step forward. But it was a very small step. It did not force us to confront the foundations of a system that relegated one race to a subservient role. The good, sometimes devoted, relationships, between servants and their superiors obscured the oppressiveness of the system. ... A new novel by UNC-Chapel Hill Professor Minrose Gwin gives us a chance to see our region through different eyes. Her book, “The Queen of Palmyra,” takes us back to 1963 and a small southern town. Florence, the fictional narrator and central character, is an 11-year-old girl who spends most of her days in the company of and in the care of her grandmother’s African American maid, Zenie. While Zenie was telling young Florence stories of Zenobia, Queen of Palmyra, Florence’s father, Winburn Lafayette Forrest III, was telling her tales “about brave Christian men who, yes siree bobtail, fought to the death like true soldiers for little girls like me and beautiful and pure women like my mother.” During the days, Zenie brought Florence into her home in “Shake Rag,” the black section of town. Later, in the evenings Florence would bring to her father his beloved box of robe, hood, and other items, for his Klan meetings and “activities.” And, once, her father proudly took her inside a Klan meeting where she wore her own specially made white robe. Other times, she would slip away with her mother to warn black friends about upcoming Klan activities. When Florence fell behind in her schoolwork, Zenie’s niece, Eva, was the only person who could teach Florence the English grammar she needed to catch up. But Eva’s activities in organizing voter registration efforts made her a target of Win Forrest and his Klan brothers. The consequences of that conflict frame an awful tragedy that rips Florence away from her connection to Zenie, to her father and mother, and to her hometown. In a new setting she will find relief from the racial conflict, subservience, and the confusion of her hometown and her father’s racism. ... It is tempting to read “The Queen of Palmyra” as an allegory of the transformation of the Modern South and the benefit to whites from the destruction of the social system they fought so hard to preserve. But Minrose Gwin does not preach. She is a gifted storyteller, careful wordsmith, and sensitive observer of personal interactions. Her book would be compelling reading, even if it had no important underlying message.

Impressive choice W

ASHINGTON — It is encouraging that President Obama, at least on foreign policy matters, still has the ability to surprise and impress. The only real objection to the sacking of Gen. Stanley McChrystal following his spectacular collapse of judgment was the delicate nature of the moment in Afghanistan itself. The Afghan surge is just getting up to strength. Large exertions are ahead. A disruptive command change, at this point, would have left Obama open to the charge that his offended pride was more important than ongoing military operations. There was only one choice that could have vindicated presidential authority over the military while ensuring the continuity of operations in Afghanistan — and Obama made it. Gen. David Petraeus is the intellectual architect of modern counterinsurgency strategy. He is revered by American troops and trusted by Afghan President Hamid Karzai. Most urgently, Petraeus knows how to show deference to civilian control of the military without abandoning his own military views. By agreeing to serve where the need is greatest, Petraeus assumes a reputational risk. But his appointment must also involve a pleasing sense of vindication. Just three years ago, a trio of Democratic senators named Clinton, Biden and Obama gave Petraeus a hostile reception on Capitol Hill. Petraeus’ report on improved conditions in Iraq, said Sen. Hillary Clinton, requires “a willing suspension of disbelief.” “We should stop the surge and start bringing our troops home,” argued Sen. Joe Biden. Progress in Iraq, said Sen. Barack Obama, is “considered success, and it’s not.” It is now officially impossible for Democrats to downplay the dramatic, historic achievements of the Iraq surge, having turned to its author in their own time of need. By accepting Gen. McChrystal’s resignation, Obama aims at “unity of effort” across his national security team. But the cause of disunity was not McChrystal and his staff alone. The Obama administration’s 10-month Afghanistan policy review last year will be long-remembered as an example of botched executive decision-making. After a false start that resulted in no consensus, even in the president’s own mind, Afghan policy process 2.0 was dominated by a civilian-military disagreement that produced a steady supply of press leaks and the unauthorized release of classified documents. Staffers within the White House and the military took up cudgels on behalf of their principals, with little of the restraint shown by the principals themselves. Arguments became camps. A team of rivals ceased to be a team at all. And the process never seemed to end. In December, Obama announced an expanded mission in Afghanistan to be achieved on an 18-month deadline. The military interpreted that deadline as aspirational

Michael Gerson Columnist Michael Gerson is a columnist with the Washington Post Writers Group

— a way to pressure the Afghan government into assuming greater responsibility while keeping future military options open. White House officials saw the deadline as hard and fast — a way to reassure restive Democrats on Capitol Hill and eventually get out of a messy conflict, no matter the outcome. This ambiguity carries a danger — that the Taliban will think America can be outlasted or forced into desperate deals that betray the Afghan people. On Afghanistan, Obama seems genuinely conflicted. As a foreign policy pragmatist, he understands the unacceptable strategic costs of American failure in the extremist heartland. As a former anti-war senator and the peace candidate in the last election, he cannot bring himself to fully commit to an unpopular war. So he has told the military, in essence: We will give you more resources but limited time. This formulation, however, involves an inherent division between “us” — a White House with limited patience — and “them,” a military that would be blamed for failure. This is a typical pose for Congress, demanding results from the military in exchange for additional time and resources. It is not a typical attitude for a commander in chief, who normally identifies more closely with the fate, views and goals of the men and women at his command. Does the appointment of Petraeus resolve this ambiguity? It certainly lessens it. Testifying in Congress last week, Petraeus said, “it is important that July 2011 be seen for what it is, the date when a process begins based on conditions, not the date when the U.S. heads for the exits.” The selection of Petraeus can only be seen as an endorsement of this view. But it is another, necessary act of leadership for Obama to end this ambiguity in his own voice.

Today’s Prayer The Lord said to Jacob, “I will be with you and protect you wherever you go ... I will not leave you until I have done all that I have promised you.” (Genesis 28:15 TEV) PRAYER: Dear God, help me to be content with my lot and not to worry or ever fail to trust You to care for me. Amen.

To the Editor: As July 4th approaches, I just wanted to thank President Obama, Congress and our state and local “elected” friends. Thank you for waking me up and causing this American to research her heart to understand what freedom truly means. You have done wonders for the Conservative revolution happening today. I see clearly the “war” all of you have declared on the American way of life. Your unending spending, mandated health care, financial reform, excessive taxation, etc., is really a war on me and my liberty. You detest me because I don’t want to depend on you for my livelihood. You detest me because I work hard and believe in individualism and the Creatorgiven rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. You, Mr. President and your friends, are reaching into areas of my life that you have no business being. I do not want you telling me what and when to eat, and how much salt I should use. I do not want you telling me what, when and where to drive, nor rationing our resources. I do not want you telling me I am not worthy of medical treatment and should “just take the pill.” I do not want you telling me if my child can have braces or not, if I can refinance my house, etc, as the just passed Financial reform bill gives you, the government, the right to do. You have attacked the Constitution long enough. And I see now, as do many Americans, that my apathy over the years has propelled that. But no more. Realize there are some things you will never do. You will never take my love for my country, my respect, love and honor for the ones who died for my freedom, or my love for God away. No matter what you try. And Mr. President and friends, Israel is going nowhere. Stop siding with our enemies and treating our allies with disrespect. Secure our borders where our citizens are being murdered. And remember, Mr. President, you are the president of the United States. Not the United States minus Arizona. SHEILA BARBER Sanford

Foreign exchange students get most out of Grace Special to The Herald


he 2009-2010 school year was an exceptionally memorable experience for four Grace Christian School students. The four teenagers and their parents made conscious decisions to go out of their own country to attend Grace. It turned out to be a blessing to them and to the other students at the Sanford School.

KOREA Seung Joo Lee is an exchange student from Korea. The ninth-grader marvels at the different cultures and declares the main inconsistencies between education here and there are the in-depth English class, separated into grammar, reading and writing. When asked why she came, she replied enthusiastically, “Because I wanted to.” She was born in Seoul, South Korea, and moved to Kong Ito. While attending Grace, she lives with the Phil and Donna Hunt family. Seung Joo has a deeply-rooted love of music, and became a member of a band in Korea when she was only eleven years old. She is also an avid artist, and is often seen decorating binders and sketching caricatures. Her parents work in animal pharmaceuticals and fully support the exchange program. Her brother is

Seung Joo will return to Korea for a brief time this summer, before coming back to Grace Christian for next year. Seung Joo said she has enjoyed her time here and is excited about entering the 10th grade at Grace.

VIETNAM Thong Pham had no trouble making friends and becoming a favorite at Grace. The teenager from Che Minh City, Vietnam, was voted “friendliest” by his senior classmates. Making friends comes natural to Thong. From the time that he arrived at Grace, he was known for walking up to people of all ages to introduce himself. “Hi, I’m Thong,” he would say with a captivating smile that would disarm and slow down even

those in a hurry. He is an only child and misses his parents, Pham Thi Hiep Hoa and Nguyen Ngoc. Thong is living with his cousin in Sanford. He says that Che Minh City is at least twice as large as Sanford. He wants an education here because of the opportunities, especially in computer technology. His favorite subjects are math and English. He enjoys reading, playing tennis, badminton, and ping pong, as well as listening to music and surfing the web. Thong will not return to Vietnam anytime soon — choosing instead to continue his education here. He will attend Sandhills Community College next year.

MEXICO Alejandro “Alex” Guerra Uribe came to Grace from Mexico City. Alex left his school in Mexico to

enter the ninth grade at Grace Christian this past year. He is living with his cousin while here. He said, “I love Grace Christian. When I first came, it was very different, but everyone was kind to me.” He said one of the biggest differences between Sanford and Mexico City is the traffic. “Here you can go 35 or 45 miles-an-hour in the city, but over there you can only go 5 or 10,” he said. Alex’s favorite subjects are science and math. Not unlike many American teenagers, his favorite food is spaghetti.

UGANDA Gideon Tumwesige Nsibambi, also a ninthgrader last year, came to Grace Christian from the mountains of Uganda. He is from a town called

Kasese. Gideon’s culture shock included transitions from his clan and their food taboos. Some foods are believed to be evil. But Gideon dismissed such beliefs by exclaiming, “We are clothed in the blood of Christ and do not take that stuff seriously.” The family unit is very special to him. His father, Steven, is a pastor, and his mother evangelizes through teaching. He has three sisters. He calls them, “A family consumed by Jesus.” Unless asked, Gideon doesn’t talk about his musical talents, but he plays several instruments. He prefers piano, guitar, and drums. He has been an answer to prayers for the music program of the Grace Chapel Youth Group. His ambition is to be a scientist. Sadly for the other students and staff at Grace Christian, he will not return next year. Gideon will attend school in Uganda, and is optimistic about what God has for his future. Gideon arrived at Grace under circumstances different from the other foreign students. Over the last eight summers, Grace Christian School Administrator, Bill Carver, has ministered with Gideon’s father in East Africa. The mission trips resulted in a close relationship between Carver and the family. Carver said, “I got to know the family, and I asked if we could arrange for Gideon to spend a year

in the United States with me.” Gideon resided at home while attending elementary school in Uganda. During the two years before coming to Grace, however, he attended a boarding school and lived about 50 miles from home. He only returned home between school terms. He lived with the Carvers while attending Grace Christian. Carver said, “Gideon has taken regular classes; however, our real academic goal was for him to gain fluency in English. He has accomplished that goal with flying colors.” Gideon makes friends easily and several going-away parties were arranged for him — a testimony to his relationship with his peers. Gideon and Carver left for Uganda on June 16. Gideon will return home and prepare for another school year. Carver, making his ninth consecutive trip to Africa, will again be associated with Watchmen International. He works with native pastors and focuses on teaching discipleship. Watchman International subsidizes the nursery schools by providing pay for the teachers, food for the children once a day, and pays tuition for some of the children who are orphans. “My job,” Carver explained, “is to establish the schools, train the teachers, and support them with periodic visits.”


Church celebrates homecoming by honoring founder Special to The Herald

SANFORD — The Sesquicentennial year of Morris Chapel United Methodist Church was celebrated at Homecoming as the second special Sunday of the year earlier this month. Since the founding in 1860, Morris Chapel has celebrated 150 years of ministry in the little white country church sitting in Harnett County on Cox Mill Road. More than 185 church members, friends and family came to partake in this special Homecoming, held June 6. On that day, Dr. Tracy A. Maness, who delivered the message of “The Church” at the 100th anniversary celebration in 1960, returned to deliver a message of “Jubilee” for the 150th anniversary. Maness served the church from 1959-1963 and his family was the first family to live in the church parsonage. Jeanette Cox was worship leader and Rhonda McNeill gave the children’s sermon. A

Kathryn Groce Waters and Van Groce Sr., fourth generation descendants of the Morris’, placed a wreath of flowers on the graves. The first church, guided

in its erection by John Morris and the Reverend Peter Doub, served the congregation until the present structure was built in 1904. The present church has seen many improvements since 1904. The sanctuary has been renovated several times with the last renovation being in 1996. Beside the church is a seven room parsonage, which was constructed in 1959. Needing room for growth, in 1968, a fellowship hall was built. In 2001, the fellowship hall was enlarged with additional Sunday School rooms added.

Official: All campaigns goofed on flights RALEIGH (AP) — Republican and Democratic candidates alike had problems recording and reporting the value of private air travel during their 2004 and 2008 campaigns for governor, according to a report issued Friday. All gubernatorial campaigns using private aircraft in the 2004 and 2008 election cycles struggled to report aircraft use fully and accurately, State Board of Elections Executive Director Gary Bartlett said in an accompanying memo. “However, no evidence surfaced indicating any intent of wrongdoing,” Bartlett wrote. The North Carolina Republican Party last year asked state elections officials to investigate Democratic Gov. Beverly Perdue’s campaign for potential campaign finance violations after some private campaign flights were reported after Day. The office is full of animal lovers, she said, so it’s become part of the workplace culture. “It’s a great opportunity to help out our furry friends,” Becker said. “It’s just fun having them here.” Most of the Kelly MarCom employees have pets, and many of them have both dogs and cats. But Starr said she doesn’t think a Take Your Cat to Work Day is in the firm’s future. “All of our cats have a diva complex,” Starr said. “They might not make good office mates.”

free or discounted air travel became a political issue. The state elections board ordered former Gov. Mike Easley’s campaign committee to pay $100,000 in penalties after failing to report dozens of flights he took over several years. Perdue’s campaign committee last year reported 40 flights that had not been disclosed or accounted for in her 2004 campaign for lieutenant governor and 2008 campaign for governor. Some of the aircraft provided to Perdue were owned by people who had already given her campaign the maximum allowed by law. Friday’s report said that Perdue’s campaign committee on Thursday paid for another flight — a September 2007 trip to a Michigan fundraiser. The elections board said eight gubernatorial hopefuls in 2004 and

2008 reported not using aircraft in their campaigns. Of the others, elections board investigators found: n They could not determine who paid for an eight-city jaunt by Republican Patrick Ballantine during his 2004 campaign for governor. n Republican Richard Vinroot’s primary-day air travels in 2004 weren’t clearly accounted. n Republican Pat McCrory’s 2008 campaign failed to disclose or pay for two trips. Bills for the flights were paid and an amended report filed in February after the elections board began its investigation. Campaign disclosure reports also mention one USAir flight, while other documents show three payments for flights. n Fred Smith owned his own Cessna Citation 525 aircraft, which he

used during his Republican primary campaign in 2007 and 2008. Smith’s committee said it was told to treat the aircraft the same way as a personal vehicle and did not report its use. The elections board investigator said there was no record of that discussion, and that candidates are required to disclose all contributions they give their campaign. n Investigators said they were unable to determine whether Bill Graham’s 2008 GOP campaign committee disclosed expenditures for using a private plane in line with guidance from the elections board in 2007. n Democrat Richard Moore’s 2008 campaign treasurer reported destroying all records, which elections board investigators said were supposed to be retained until January 2011.


40 church members fall ill after pot luck CARY (MCT) — After a Sunday church service last week, 40 members of a Cary Baptist church caught a stomach virus, including the pastor’s family. About 140 people gathered for Sunday worship at North Cary Baptist Church on Reedy Creek Road and then ate a pot luck lunch together, said Pastor Mark Minervino. Soon after, people began falling ill and vomiting, he said. At

first, they thought it was food poisoning, but the illness passed between family members at different times. They later discovered a child in the church had been ill two days before the pot luck. The child was not there Sunday, but relatives were, Minervino said. No one has been hospitalized, Minervino said. The pastor spoke with a Wake County Health Department official, who told him it is

probably the norovirus, a stomach bug that swept through Wake County earlier this year. Wil Glenn, a spokesman for the Wake County Health Department, said officials have spoken with Minervino and “all precautionary steps have been taken.” “We don’t think this is any kind of community outbreak,” he continued, adding he encourages people to wash hands and disinfect surfaces.

Police investigating woman’s death SMITHFIELD (MCT) — Smithfield police are investigating the suspicious death of a woman at her home a few blocks from downtown on Thursday. Police say 74-yearold Patricia Stevens’ son found her dead around 5 p.m. Thursday at her house at 309 N. Third St. Lt. Keith Powell said Stevens was “the victim of an apparent crime,” but he wouldn’t say how she died until he hears from the medical examiner. Stevens was the widow of prominent Smithfield attorney Austin Stevens, who died in 2005. She was active in Centenary United Methodist Church and is

remembered fondly by friends and neighbors. “She was a very, very nice lady,” said Edith Wilkins. “Pat was a staunch friend. Everybody liked her.” Powell said detectives found no signs of forced entry to the house. “The house was in disarray,” he said. “We’ve not taken the family through yet to determine whether anything is missing or not.” On Friday morning, police set up a traffic checkpoint on North Third Street, asking drivers on the busy shortcut to the north end of Smithfield if they’d seen anything suspicious. As of 9 a.m. Friday, police had no leads, Powell

said. The State Bureau of Investigation and the District Attorney’s Office have been called in to help with the investigation. Neighbors in the 300 block of North Third Street said news of the incident has them on edge. “We just really want to know what happened, so we can adjust or ramp up our security system,” said Mary Stephens, who lives across the street from the Stevens residence. “We’re just shocked by it,” added her husband, David Stephens, noting that the neighborhood has seen an increase in home breakins but no violent crime.

“If you don’t feel secure in your own home, that’s a problem.” He said Patricia Stevens and her late husband had lived in the house since the early 1980s. The home was built by former Johnston County schools superintendent H.B. Marrow, who’s credited with creating a single countywide school district and one of the largest school-building campaigns in county history. Police are asking anyone with information to call the department’s anonymous tip line at 919-989-8835. A reward is being offered for information. — The News and Observer


Man jailed on $5M bond in prescription case

RALEIGH (MCT) — A Raleigh man is in jail this morning on $5 million bond facing a series of felony prescription drug charges.

: The increase will put the local sales tax rate at 2.25 percent. What other levies contribute to the total sales tax rate, which goes to 8 percent? The remaining 5.75 percent is levied by the State of North Carolina.


: How does Lee County’s new sales tax rate compare with our surrounding counties? And does the higher rate put us at any disadvantage? The counties that we share borders with will still be at the 7.75 percent rate as of July 1. However, Cumberland and Randolph will be at the 8 percent rate. We do not feel that the higher rate will put us at a disadvantage. There are many factors that determine where a person shops. The sales tax rate

: Are there any common misconceptions about the tax, which, according to legislation, applies to tangible personal property, certain digital property and other transactions subject to the general state rate of sales and use tax? The biggest misconception about sales tax is what is and is not taxed. In North Carolina, there are 68 exemptions to the sales tax, the most of any state in the country. Most exemptions involve service related transactions such as attorney fees, architectural fees, doctors services, etc. Another item exempt from sales tax is prescription drugs; however, over-the-counter medications are subject to sales tax. The increased sales tax rate will not apply to most

The prescription drug pad came from the Daniels & Peck Family Medicine practice, police said in the warrants. Police said Meares possessed or transport-

food purchased in grocery stores. Currently, only a 2 percent sales tax applies to most grocery food purchase that will remain the same. Vehicles are another area where there is a misconception. Vehicle sales are taxed at a 3 percent rate that is submitted to the state and retained by the state. Another misconception is the idea that you can avoid the additional tax by buying outside Lee County.

For nine years, the Youth Conservatory has been giving children a chance to chase their theatre dreams. In just two weeks, students memorize, rehearse and perform an entire musical. The program has become so popular that it’s doubled in size: two sessions of 38 students apiece now perform, one set of performances in July, the other in August. Recent Southern Lee High School graduate Victoria Davis has participated in the program since she was 8 years old. On

Former lottery official wants out of prison RALEIGH (AP) — A sweeping decision on Thursday by the U.S. Supreme Court may have given a former North Carolina lottery commissioner an opportunity to leave prison early and have his conviction overturned. U.S. District Judge James Dever III wrote in an order, also issued Thursday, that the high court’s ruling in the unrelated case of former Enron executive Jeffrey Skilling calls into question the conviction of Kevin Geddings. Geddings was convicted in 2006 on five counts of honest services mail fraud for hiding his financial ties to a company that was expected to bid for the state’s lottery business. In May 2007, he was sentenced to four years in federal prison. But the Supreme Court ruled in the Skilling case that criminal convictions are only valid in honest services fraud cases if bribes or kickbacks are involved, and not merely conflicts of interest. “Geddings was not convicted under a bribe or her first audition day, she started crying and had to be carried offstage. Things change a lot in nine years—Davis belted out two songs at Thursday’s audition with a confident smile. The Jungle Book will be her final show before she heads off to East Carolina University as a theatre major in the fall. That means it’s her last chance to make an impression. In the auditions, she was gunning for the role of Baloo the bear because of his fun and challenging singing role. “I’m going to give every inch of my being into every kick and note, because I want to go out doing the best I can,” Davis said. “I don’t want to just twiddle out, I want to go out with a bang.” As students go through the rehearsal process, there are often major changes in confidence level even in a short period of time, Temple director of education

kickback theory at trial,” Dever wrote. “Rather, Geddings was convicted under the undisclosedself-dealing theory that the Supreme Court expressly rejected in Skilling.” Dever ordered the U.S. Attorney’s Office to weigh in by June 29 on whether Geddings should be immediately released from prison and have his conviction thrown out. Messages seeking comment were left with that office Friday, but not immediately returned. “What he did was not honest services fraud,” Jonathan Edelstein, Geddings’ New York-based lawyer, said Friday. “We’re looking forward to Mr. Geddings being released immediately.” Edelstein is preparing a response in case the U.S. attorney argues that Geddings should serve the remainder of his sentence. The former lottery commissioner is at a federal prison in Jesup, Ga. He currently has a December release date, although he is scheduled to move to a halfway house in September, Edelstein said. Tom Dalton said. Rahne Hartman, 10, and Peyton Horner, 10, are attending the conservatory for the first time this summer. In just one week, the two girls have already blossomed, Dalton said. On Thursday, Madison Cole wowed the audience with her singing, but hadn’t quite made up her mind which character she wanted to be. She knew one thing for sure, though: she was hoping for one of the bad guys. “I don’t like always being the good character, because it’s more fun not to be good all the time — sometimes it’s fun to be evil,” Cole said. At noon on Friday, the final casting choices were announced. Davis nabbed the role of Baloo — and now it’s crunch time. She has to have all of her lines memorized by Monday. “I got excited—and then I went, okay, I have to work really hard now,” Davis said.

FTC has questions on whitening

RALEIGH (AP) — People other than dentists should be able to whiten teeth in North Carolina, says a federal agency that has charged the state’s dentists with stifling competition. The News & Observer of Raleigh reported that the Federal Trade Commission has charged that the N.C. Board of Dental Examiners has overstepped in its drive to close businesses such as day spas and tanning booths where non-dentists offer whitening services. But the board says anyone who does that is practicing dentistry without a license. “State statute says removing stains from teeth is practicing dentistry,� said Noel Allen,

a lawyer with Allen and Pinnix in Raleigh who is representing the dental board. “If you look at what they’re advertising, that is what they are doing.� The FTC says financial self-interest may be the board’s motive since six of its eight members are dentists. The nondentistry options for teeth whitening generally cost less than the $300 to $700 dentists charge. The commission’s complaint says the board may have gone beyond its authority in issuing cease-and-desist letters to various businesses, including the malls where the kiosks have operated. Instead of sending letters, the board is required by state law to go to court

and press its case. “By not going to court, they’re evading a check on what they’re doing and not providing the state itself an opportunity to weigh in,� said Melissa WestmanCherry, an attorney for the FTC in Washington. A court action would also provide the targeted businesses with an opportunity to plead their side, she said. But the board is like most other regulatory panels in issuing letters first, then turning to the courts if necessary, Allen said. The FTC complaint will be heard in February before an administrative law judge. Joyce Osborn, the president and founder of the Alabama-based

Council for Cosmetic Teeth Whitening, said she has battled the North Carolina board and others for years. “This is just the beginning of what we’re going to see out there as far as fighting for our rights, and that’s what it is all about,� Osborn said. “This is no different than coloring your hair at home.� The services provide a way for people to get a slightly more powerful concentration of the bleaching chemicals than the $25 kits available in drug stores, Osborn said. Kits used at dentist offices, which are the most powerful, often are combined with light treatments to enhance the bleaching action.

RALEIGH (AP) — An off-duty North Carolina Highway Patrol trooper has been arrested on charges of drunken driving and felony hit and run. The Asheville Citizen-Times reported Master Trooper Timothy Scott Stiwinter Hendersonville was arrested after a wreck Thursday night in which a vehicle ran a red light and hit a car. Investigators say Stiwinter was stopped by an Asheville police officer a couple hours after the wreck. An officer said she detected the smell of alcohol on Stiwinter’s breath and that he was unsteady. He refused to take a field sobriety test or a breath-alcohol test. A search warrant has been filed to test Stiwinter’s blood. It was unclear if he has an attorney.

Budget talks likely to keep on into weekend

although at least 21,000 voter signatures had been verified by elections officials. But Fant, who resigned from Kissell’s Concord district office last month, had to take the final step and file the petition information with the State Board of Elections by Friday’s deadline. “I have to put my family ahead of my own political ambitions, and for that reason I will not be a candidate for Congress this year,� said Fant, 42, of Concord, who is married and has a son. North Carolina Families First, which mounted a drive to collect nearly 17,000 signatures for an

independent bid to challenge Kissell because of his opposition to the health care overhaul signed into law by President Obama, can’t use the signatures now to replace Fant with another candidate. The group, funded by the Service Employees International Union and its local, the State Employees Association of North Carolina, has warmed up to Kissell now that Fant isn’t running. On Friday, it pointed out Kissell’s voting record on legislation extending unemployment benefits, protecting families against mortgage fraud and encouraging clean energy sources.

RALEIGH (AP) — House and Senate negotiators are expected to keep horse trading into the weekend to attempt to hammer out final details on the North Carolina government budget for the new fiscal year. Democrats met on Friday and made little progress by the late afternoon. Sen. Linda Garrou of Winston-Salem said there were differences on public education and criminal justice programs. They hadn’t agreed what to do about a taxpayer-funded tuition subsidy for out-ofstate athletes who attend University of North Carolina schools. Rep. Mickey Michaux of Durham said the negotiators also must fill a $525 million gap in the roughly $19 billion budget because extra Medicaid money from Congress isn’t coming for now. Michaux said the two sides would resume Saturday morning. The new fiscal year begins Thursday.

Convenience store at N.C. beach to deliver beer

WILMINGTON (AP) — At one North Carolina beach, visitors can leave their coolers at home. Someone else will bring the beer. The StarNews of Wilmington reported that a drivethrough convenience store began delivering beer on Friday to Freeman Park on the north end of Pleasure Island. Brew Thru owner John Childers recently asked Carolina Beach officals about the possibility of beer delivery. Town officials decided they didn’t have jurisdiction to regulate beer sales. Childers says Brew Thru plans to deliver beer every two hours, beginning at 1 p.m., for those who ordered 30 minutes earlier.

Animal groups to meet with county health board LUMBERTON (AP) — Animal rights advocates plan to tell the health board in a North Carolina county about their concerns regarding the animal shelter. The Fayetteville Observer reported Friday the advocates suing the Robeson County Animal Shelter will speak with health board members at a hearing the board requested. Attorney Calley Gerbert of Raleigh represents the advocates and says the hearing is an attempt to settle the dispute out of court. The lawsuit says shelter staff regularly euthanize animals even after rescue groups call to adopt them, and includes other complaints.

Officials haven’t released trooper’s texts RALEIGH (AP) — State officials are considering whether to release text messages that prompted a high-ranking North Carolina Highway Patrol trooper to resign. The News & Observer of Raleigh reported that Maj. Everett Clendenin sent the text messages to a female co-worker on a state-owned Blackberry. Media have requested the messages under the state’s public records law, but officials say they’re reviewing whether they’re required to do that. A lawyer for the North Carolina Press Association says the messages definitely qualify as public records. Attorney Hugh Stevens says it’s not a complicated issue. Clendenin resigned Wednesday after 22 years with the patrol.

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — Maine utility regulators have approved FairPoint Communications’ bankruptcy reorganization plan and its request to modify an agreement struck when it took over Verizon’s landline and Internet operations. By a 2-1 vote, the Public Utilities Commission on Thursday approved FairPoint’s bankruptcy plan and changes to the commission’s 2008 order approving FairPoint’s $2.3 billion purchase of Verizon properties in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont. North Carolina-based FairPoint is seeking similar approvals in New Hampshire and Vermont, but regulators in those states have yet to make a decision. The company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy last October.

Deal gives Obama a new triumph Porn sites

WASHINGTON (AP) — The toughest financial regulations since the Great Depression are headed for final votes in Congress next week, covering everything from debit card swipes at Starbucks to the most complex securities, in an election-year salve for public anger over the Wall Street risk-taking that cost millions their jobs, homes and nest eggs. House and Senate bargainers approved the deal as the sun rose Friday, giving President Barack Obama a fresh campaignseason triumph after his health care overhaul — and an achievement to tout at the weekend global economic summit in Toronto. Democrats hope lawmakers can pass the legislation and ship it to Obama for his signature by July 4, capping a burst of action prompted by the worst recession in seven decades. The legislation creates a new federal agency to police consumer lending, set up a warning system for financial risks, force failing firms to liquidate and map new rules for instruments that have been largely uncontrolled. Leaving the White House for Toronto, Obama said the package will “help prevent another financial crisis like the one that we’re still recovering from.� Financial analysts, however, gave it mixed reviews. Some said banks would simply find new ways to make money by getting around the rules and estab-

While reining in banks and setting new rules for high finance, the legislation also reaches down to some of the most commonplace consumer transactions. The Federal Reserve will have to set new limits on the fees banks charge merchants who accept debit cards. Retailers, who would stand to save billions in payments, would be able to offer customers reduced prices for debit card use. Banks said the limits could simply shift costs to other banking products. Lenders would no longer be able to make a loan without verifying that the borrower can repay it. They would have to disclose the maximum amount that borrowers could pay on adjustable-rate mortgages and they would be barred from receiving incentives to push homebuyers into high-priced loans.

Aside from the sweep of the legislation, the agreement gives the president another signature achievement just three months after he pushed a reshaping of the nation’s health care system through Congress. With deep public hostility toward Wall Street and the government bailouts that helped rescue them— an Associated Press-GfK Poll this month found that 79 percent blame banks and lenders for the economic problems — Democrats can only hope the measure will help them cling to their congressional majorities in the November elections. Hoping to latch on to populist anger, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said the law sends a clear warning that Wall Street recklessness won’t be allowed to spread joblessness across the country. The Consumer Federation

of America said the package would “improve the marketplace for consumers and thereby improve the stability of our economy.� Even so, the measure’s political impact is unclear. In the AP-GfK Poll, 7 in 10 also blamed lax federal regulation for the recession, 6 in 10 blamed people who couldn’t afford their loans, and nearly two-thirds doubted the legislation would ward off a future downturn. The legislation was not without its critics. Republicans complained that it ignored their efforts to impose tighter restrictions on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the mortgage giants who have benefited from huge federal bailouts and whose questionable lending helped trigger the housing and economic meltdowns. “Democrats have crafted a bill that fails to address the origins of the crisis and will not prevent a replay of events in the future,� said Rep. Tom Price, R-Ga., a member of the House GOP leadership. He said the measure would hinder economic growth and hurt consumers by limiting their access to credit. Vikram Pandit, CEO of the financial giant Citigroup, said he hopes the measure “will provide direction and stability for the financial system going forward.� Some analysts said investors were relieved to know the new rules didn’t end up being even harsher.


Gov: Most illegal immigrants smuggling drugs

PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer said Friday most illegal immigrants entering Arizona are being used to transport drugs across the border, an assertion that critics painted as exaggerated and racist. Brewer said the motivation of “a lot� of the illegal immigrants is to enter the United States to look for work, but that drug rings press them into duty as drug “mules.� “I believe today, under

the circumstances that we’re facing, that the majority of the illegal trespassers that are coming into the state of Arizona are under the direction and control of organized drug cartels and they are bringing drugs in,� Brewer said. “There’s strong information to us that they come as illegal people wanting to come to work. Then they are accosted and they become subjects of the drug cartel,� she

said. Sen. Jesus Ramon Valdes, a member of the Mexican senate northern border affairs commission, called Brewer’s comments racist and irresponsible. “Traditionally, migrants have always been needy, humble people who in good faith go looking for a way to better the lives of their families,� Ramon Valdes said. A Border Patrol spokesman said illegal immi-

grants do sometimes carry drugs across the border, but he said he couldn’t provide numbers because the smugglers are turned over to prosecutors. “I wouldn’t say that every person that is apprehended is being used as a mule,� spokesman Mario Escalante said from Tucson. “The smuggling organizations, in their attempts to be lucrative and to make more money, they’ll try pretty much whatever they need.�

closer to .xxx Web address BRUSSELS (AP) — It may soon be easier to block Internet porn: The agency that controls domain names said Friday it will consider adding .xxx to the list of suffixes people and companies can pick when establishing their identities online. The California-based nonprofit agency, ICANN, effectively paved the way for a digital red light district to take its place alongside suffixes such as .com and .org, finally ending a decade-long battle over what some consider formal acknowledgment of pornography’s prominent place on the Internet. While the move may help parents stop their children from seeing some seedy sites, it wouldn’t force porn peddlers to use the new .xxx address — and skeptics argue that few adult-only sites will give up their existing .com addresses. Still, it’s seen as a symbolic step in the opening up of Internet domain names and suffixes, coming on the same day the agency said it would start accepting Chinese script for domain names. The decision is primarily a victory for U.S. company ICM Registry LLC, which has applied repeatedly to be able to register and manage the .xxx suffix. The Internet names agency has rejected its application three times since 2000, partly under pressure from Christian groups and governments unhappy with the spread of online porn, said ICM’s chief executive, Stuart Lawley. He pitches the suffix, in part, as protection for parents, arguing it will make it easy for Web blocking software to filter out “.xxx� sites, marking them clearly as porn. “People who want to find it know where it is, and people who don’t see it or want to keep it away

from their kids can use mechanisms to do so,� he said ICANN’s board, at a meeting Friday in Brussels, said it had not treated the company’s application fairly three years ago when it reversed an earlier decision recognizing .xxx as the representative of the porn industry. ICANN is now promising to move swiftly with standard checks on Lawley’s company. Peter Dengate Thrush, the chairman of ICANN’s board, said the Friday decision “does not mean the .xxx application has been approved ... It means that we are returning to negotiations with the applicant.� He estimates that it could take a year for full approval, far longer than the few months ICM says it would take. He shrugged off criticisms that ICANN was creating a new platform for Internet porn. “We’re not in the content business, and that’s up to national governments and lawmakers and people who are qualified to make judgments,� he said. He also warned that .xxx might not necessarily be a success — and that some new Internet suffixes have failed to attract many signups. Some note that most porn sites would likely keep their existing “.com� names, to allow their businesses to be found more easily. “If it is still going to be available on other domains, it just sounds ineffective� as a way of regulating adult content, said Cathy Wing, of Media Awareness Network, a Canadian nonprofit that advises parents and teachers about Web use. Pornography is a huge business: The adult entertainment industry is worth some $13 billion a year, according to the California-based Adult Video News Media Network.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; BPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s effort to drill a relief well through 2 1/2 miles of rock to stop the Gulf spill is on target for completion by mid-August, the oil giant said Friday. But BPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stock tumbled anyway over the mounting costs of the disaster and the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inability to plug the leak sooner. The relief well is considered the best hope of halting the crude that has been gushing since April 20 in the biggest offshore oil spill in U.S. history. The crew that has been drilling the relief well since early May ran a test to confirm it is on the right path, using a tool that detects the magnetic field around the casing of the original, blown-out well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The laymanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s translation is, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We are where we thought we were,â&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; said BP spokesman Bill Salvin. Several such tests are necessary, since drilling sideways into the original well casing requires boring through more than 13,000 feet of rock to hit a target 9 inches in diameter, or about the size of a dinner plate. Once the new well intersects the ruptured one, BP plans to pump heavy drilling mud in to stop the oil flow and plug it with cement. Despite the encouraging news, BP stock tumbled 6 percent in New York on Friday to a 14-year low on news that BP has now spent $2.35 billion dealing with the disaster. BP has lost more than

Meanwhile, the forecasters and the oil company kept an eye on an area of low-pressure in the Caribbean that threatened to turn into the first tropical depression of the Atlantic season. The effort to capture the oil gushing from the sea bottom could be interrupted for up to two weeks if a storm forces BP to move its equipment out of harmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s way, said Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen, the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s point man on the crisis. In other news: n A financial disclosure report released Friday shows that the Louisiana judge who struck down the Obama administrationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s six-month ban on deep-water drilling in the

Gulf has sold many of his energy investments. U.S. District Judge Martin Feldman still owns eight energy-related investments, including stock in Exxon Mobil Corp. Among the assets he sold was stock in Transocean, which owned the rig that exploded. n Labor Secretary Hilda Solis slammed BP â&#x20AC;&#x201D; along with Massey Energy, owner of the West Virginia coal mine where 29 workers died in an explosion in April â&#x20AC;&#x201D; saying they need better safety measures. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are not saying go out of business,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do your job better. Make an investment in your employees. We want you to make a profit, but not at the expense of killing your employees.â&#x20AC;? n Vice President Joe Biden will head to the Gulf on Tuesday to visit a command center in New Orleans and the oil-fouled Florida Panhandle. n The IRS said pay-

ments for lost wages from BPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $20 billion victims compensation fund are taxable just like regular income. Payments for physical injuries or property loss are generally tax-free. BP is drilling two relief wells, in case the first one misses its mark. The first one, started May 2, reached a depth of 16,275 feet Wednesday â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including about 5,000 feet of water â&#x20AC;&#x201D; before workers paused for the test. Although the relief well is only 200 feet laterally from the original well, the crew still has to drill about 2,000 feet deeper before it can intercept the original well, according to Salvin. The second relief well, started on May 16, has reached a depth of 10,500 feet. The biggest oil spill ever in the Gulf of Mexico â&#x20AC;&#x201D; an undersea gusher in Mexico that started in the summer of 1979 and leaked 140 million gallons â&#x20AC;&#x201D; was eventually stopped with two relief wells. By some estimates, the BP spill could eclipse that disaster in a week or two; the spill has been put at somewhere between 69 million and 132 million gallons. BP would need about five days to secure or move all its equipment to safety from an approaching storm but is working to shorten that to two days, Salvin said. The equipment includes ships that are processing the oil sucked up by the containment cap on the well and the rigs drilling the two relief wells.

day â&#x20AC;&#x201D; have eroded investor confidence. Analyst Alastair Syme of Nomura Securities Co. said Thursday that pressure is growing on the company to assure sufficient funding to cap the well and cover the costs from the spill, which the company now says totals $2.35 billion. Given the expensive cost of debt and the time it takes for asset sales, Syme said the company may need an investor â&#x20AC;&#x201D; perhaps a sovereign wealth fund â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to provide a short-term solution. Such an investment could dilute the shares further. The company has



nov said that BPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daily out-of-pocket costs have nearly doubled since the rig went down. And a potential hurricane brewing near the Gulf of Mexico could further complicate cleanup efforts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the event that a storm crosses over the oil spill area, operations would almost certainly have to be suspended â&#x20AC;&#x201D; both cleanup and the drilling of the two relief wells,â&#x20AC;? the analyst wrote. BP said a containment cap continued to collect some of the oil and gas flowing from the seabed, following a 10-hour interruption on Wednesday. Even before that 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 still showed gas and oil billowing from the well. Last week, BP bowed to President Barack Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s demand that it set up a $20 billion escrow fund to cover damages and suspend dividend payments.

Harry Reidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son avoids surname in governor bid

Palin fund illegal; donors will get money back

LAS VEGAS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Democratic nominee in the Nevada governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s race is the son of one of the most powerful politicians in America, but you wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know it by his campaign. Rory Reid is going to great lengths to keep his distance from his famous father â&#x20AC;&#x201D; U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid â&#x20AC;&#x201D; in an election year when the elder Reid is the anti-incumbent movementâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public enemy No. 1. Rory Reidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign banners say â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rory 2010.â&#x20AC;? Campaign releases call him Rory on second reference. His first TV ad â&#x20AC;&#x201D; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Paid for by Rory 2010â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t utter or display his last name. Rory Reidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biography on his website makes no mention of Harry Reid. The fact that Rory Reid is avoiding his surname as he runs for governor shows how topsy-turvy this election year has become. Harry Reidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s battle for a fifth Senate term against GOP challenger and tea party darling Sharron Angle is the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s headline race this midterm election. Republicans are salivating at the prospect of unseating the man they believe embodies all that is wrong with Washington.

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Administrators of a legal defense fund set up for former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin have 90 days to return nearly $400,000 to donors, after an ethics investigator determined the fund was illegal. The Alaska Fund Trust inappropriately used the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;officialâ&#x20AC;? on its website, wrongly implying that it was endorsed by Palin in her role as governor, State Personnel Board investigator Timothy Petumenos said Thursday. But Petumenos also found that Palin â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee â&#x20AC;&#x201D; acted in good faith and relied on a team of attorneys, all but one from outside the state, to make sure the fund was lawful and complied with the Alaska Executive Branch Act. Palinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attorney, Thomas Van Flein of Anchorage, said he recommended that the fundâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s status be vetted by state attorneys before it was established, but that advice was not taken. Van Flein said the trust brought in about $390,000 before Palin stepped down as governor July 26, 2009. More than $33,000 has since been donated, but Van Flein said that money will go toward $87,680 the trust has incurred in administrative and other expenses.

Navy exaggerations damage Ill. Senate candidate

Bank stocks soar on financial regulation agreement

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Republican Mark Kirk has stepped on a political landmine of his own creation, leaving him as damaged as his Democratic opponent in the race for an Illinois Senate seat once held by President Barack Obama. Kirk, a 21-year veteran in the Navy Reserve, was caught exaggerating his military record. He claimed an award he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t win. He mentioned serving in overseas conflicts while he was safely in the United States. He stretched the facts when talking about combat and coming under fire. And his troubles donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t end there: Even his references to being a teacher are being questioned. Two months ago, it was Kirkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Democratic opponent, Alexi Giannoulias, who was on the ropes. Federal regulators had taken over his familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chicago bank, Broadway Bank, which had grown insolvent because of bad loans and a bad economy. Stories about the bank lending money to criminals were resurrected, leading Republicans to start calling Giannoulias a â&#x20AC;&#x153;mob banker.â&#x20AC;? Illinois voters now find themselves with one candidate who puffed up his credentials and one with an iffy banking record, both of them seeking a seat that former Gov. Rod Blagojevich is accused of trying to sell to the highest bidder. The Giannoulias-Kirk contest is one of the highest-profile Senate races in the country. Obama held the seat for four years before winning the White House, and a Democratic loss would be a major embarrassment to the administration.

NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Bank stocks shot higher Friday after an agreement on a financial regulation bill reassured investors that new rules wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t devastate financial companiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; profits. Banks outdistanced the rest of the market after congressional negotiators agreed on a bill that increases the regulation of financial companies, but that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t include some of the harshest provisions that the government originally proposed. The legislation imposes new rules on the complex investments known as derivates, but the rules arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as strict as investors feared. It also includes a far milder version of whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been called the Volcker rule. That rule, named after former Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker, would have banned commercial banks from trading simply to increase their profits, a practice known as proprietary trading. Analysts said the deal removes a huge cloud that has hovered over the financial industry for much of this year. Investors have feared that intense regulation would devastate bank profits. Now, the market seems to believe that financial companies would do well even with the new limits on their business. Banks were the marketâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s big performers on a day when the Dow Jones industrial average fell almost 9 points and the other major indexes had only slim gains. Goldman Sachs Group Inc. rose 3.5 percent, while JPMorgan Chase & Co. gained 3.7 percent. Bank of America rose 2.7 percent and Citigroup Inc. rose 4.2 percent.

Fans around the world honor anniversary of death By NEKESA MUMBI MOODY AP Music Writer

A year after Michael Jackson’s death caused a worldwide outpouring of shock, tears and tributes, the anniversary of his passing was being marked Friday on a quieter scale, as fans remembered their fallen King of Pop with vigils, prayer and, of course, music. The electric, enigmatic and troubled icon died on June 25, 2009, at age 50, as he was preparing for a series of comeback concerts in London. Dr. Conrad Murray is charged with involuntary manslaughter in Jackson’s death for administering the powerful anesthetic propofol to Jackson to help the pop star sleep. At Jackson’s final resting place at Forest Lawn in Glendale. Calif., about 500 fans filed past barricades Friday to get close to the mausoleum where Jackson is interred. Some wept, while some carried bouquets; others were armed with cameras to document the moment. Erick Dominguez, 37, a sales representative from Victorville, Calif., wore a black shirt with Jackson’s photo that read: “In Loving Memory.” “He’s been my idol all my life since I can remember. I feel like I haven’t had closure,” he said, starting to weep from behind dark sunglasses. Yugi Aoki, 33, of Tokyo, came with 13 other Japanese fans. They were all wearing sparkling gloves and fedora hats, one of Jackson’s signature looks. Aoki smiled as he described how Jackson influenced him: “Michael Jackson

We love his dancing and songs.” Members of the Jackson family arrived at the cemetery Friday afternoon, and brother Tito Jackson shook the hands of a few waiting fans. In Gary, Ind., Jackson’s hometown, hundreds of fans began gathering in the afternoon for a tribute at the family home; Jackson’s mother, Katherine, was in the city for the event. Leonia Lowery, 69, a retiree from Chicago, stood against the fence hoping to catch a glimpse of the family matriarch. “I’m very proud to be here and will be coming here every year because we love him,” she said as the King of Pop’s music played over loudspeakers set up outside his boyhood home. In Harlem, pictures of Jackson hung on a wall outside New York’s Apollo Theater, where Jackson

and his brothers won amateur night in the late 1960s. A sidewalk plaque honored the singer alongside such other legends as James Brown and Smokey Robinson. Since the Apollo helped launch the Jackson 5, it has had a strong connection to the late singer. After Jackson’s death, it became the de facto gathering place for New York fans. It was an emotional though more lowkey scene on Friday morning, as Jackson’s music blared from boom boxes and passing cars. “We are really honored to have played a part in launching Michael’s musical career and to serve as a gathering place for people to come and celebrate his lifetime of achievement,” said Jonelle Procope, Apollo president and CEO. Procope placed Jackson’s black hat and sequin glove, both from the theater’s collection, beside his

plaque. D.E. Cayard said he spent 68 days at the Apollo after Jackson’s death. He returned Friday, flying in from Miami, to present an artwork as tribute to Jackson. “I want to be among the people that are telling the world that Michael is forever,” he said. “Michael is celebration.” Elsewhere in Harlem, the AMC Magic Johnson Harlem 9 movie theater screened “This Is It,” the documentary about Jackson’s preparation for his London concerts, throughout the day. And the Rev. Al Sharpton was to lead a moment of silence in the afternoon. In Gary, Ind., Jackson’s hometown, there was to be a tribute at the family home; city officials said they expected Jackson’s mother, Katherine Jackson, and his niece, Genevieve Jackson, to show up. Hundreds of fans were there by mid-day. Katherine Jackson was also to lend her support to a “Forever Michael” fan event in Beverly Hills, Calif., on Saturday. In Japan, hundreds of fans met at Tokyo Tower to honor Jackson with a candlelight vigil, a gospel concert and more. Some got a chance to see a collection of his possessions, including costumes from his tours and even a 1967 Rolls-Royce Phantom that he used to drive around Los Angeles. “I don’t know what to say. Seeing all his things makes it all come back to me,” said Yumiko Sasaki, a 48-year-old Tokyo officer worker who has been a Jackson fan since she was 12. “It makes me so sad to think that he is gone. He was wonderful.”

Federal panel considers Wesley Snipes’ appeal ATLANTA (AP) — A federal appeals panel is considering whether the arrest of actor Wesley Snipes’ former financial adviser could pave the way for a new trial on tax evasion charges. Snipes was convicted and sentenced to three Snipes years in prison in 2008, but his attorneys asked the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta to allow a new request to dismiss the movie star’s conviction or grant him a new trial. The motion centers on the arrest of Kenneth Starr, the one-time financial adviser to Snipes and other celebrities. He was a key witness in Snipes’ 2008 trial but was charged in May with securities fraud worth $59 million.

TCM throws Frank Loesser a 100th birthday party

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Broadway wizard Frank Loesser remains in style as the 100th anniversary of his birth approaches. His 1962 “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying,” which captured both the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Awards, is returning to Broadway with Daniel Radcliffe. Loesser’s 1951 “Guys and Dolls,” another Tony winner, has been revived repeatedly to the same cheers that greeted its debut. Loesser, who was born June 29, 1910, in New York and died in 1969, will be feted by TCM on his birthday with a marathon of films that kicks off with 1967’s “How to Succeed” with original Broadway star Robert Morse (8 p.m. EDT). Other movies airing include 1949’s “Neptune’s Daughter” with Esther Williams (and the witty tune “Baby, It’s Cold Outside”) at midnight EDT and “Red, Hot and Blue” from 1949, starring Betty Hutton and with Loesser showing his hammy side as tough guy Hair-do Lempke (1:45 a.m. June 30). “Heart & Soul: The Life and Music of Frank Loesser, a 2006 documentary airing 10:15 p.m. June 29, details his life and career, with memories from fellow songwriters and family, including daughter Susan, author of the Frank Loesser biography “A Most Remarkable Fella.” Loesser, who crafted both words and music for his stage shows and other popular tunes, was a hot-tempered genius. Among his admirers is jazzman Dave Frishberg (“Peel Me a Grape,” “My Attorney Bernie”), who met Loesser in New York in the early years of Frishberg’s career.

NEW YORK (AP) — Jamaican gang leader Christopher “Dudus” Coke, appearing in U.S. court after the government had sought for months to extradite him from his home, pleaded not guilty Friday to charges that he ran a massive drug ring in the eastern United States from his Caribbean stronghold. The 42-year-old boss of the notorious Shower Posse gang was sent to New York on Thursday under tight security after waiving extradition. His case had sparked street violence in Kingston that left more than 70 dead. Coke, wearing a blue inmate smock and speaking softly, entered the plea during a brief appearance in Manhattan federal court. Asked by U.S. District Judge Robert Patterson whether he understood the charges, the short and stocky defendant replied, “Yes, sir.” A defense attorney temporarily assigned at the arraignment told the judge Coke planned to hire another lawyer. Attorney Frank Doddato said after the hearing that he expects to represent Coke and would vigorously fight the charges. In court papers, New York prosecutors said Coke conspired to distribute cocaine and marijuana throughout the eastern United States since 1994.

Vatican ‘astonished’ at Belgian raid

VATICAN CITY (AP) — The Vatican said Friday it was astonished and outraged that Belgian police investigating priestly sex abuse had conducted raids that also targeted the graves of two archbishops. The Vatican summoned the Belgian ambassador to the Holy See to convey its anger over the raids, which also included the home and offices of the retired archbishop of Belgium. The ambassador was called in for a meeting with the Vatican’s foreign minister.

In a statement, the Vatican said any sinful and criminal abuse of minors from members of the church must be condemned and repeated that there is a need for justice and amends. But it added, “The Secretariat of State also expresses astonishment at the way in which the search took place.” It expressed “outrage over the violation of the tombs.” On Thursday, police raided the home and former office of former Archbishop Godfried Danneels, taking documents and Danneels’ personal computer. Police and prosecutors did not say if Danneels was suspected of abuse himself or simply had records pertaining to allegations against another person. He was not questioned. Investigators also opened the graves of archbishops in the St. Rombouts Cathedral in Mechlin, north of Brussels, looking for possibly incriminating documents, said Jean-Marc Meilleur, spokesman for the Brussels public prosecutor.

China takes hands-off approach to labor strikes BEIJING (AP) — When workers at a Honda transmission plant in China went on strike for higher wages last month, they touched off a domino effect of high-profile labor disputes. As the strikes, many of them at foreign-owned plants, rippled through China’s southern manufacturing heartland, the government — usually quick to crush mass protests of any kind — did not step in, but allowed them to spread. That’s because it views the strikes less as a political threat these days than as an economic tool — a way to help restructure China’s current exportdriven economy to a more self-sustaining one, driven by ordinary people with more cash to spend. The demand for higher wages reflects a younger, savvier work force that is better organized and has higher expectations, labor experts say.




Tough road ahead with slower growth By CHRISTOPHER S. RUGABER AP Economics Writer

WASHINGTON — The economic recovery won’t be catching fire any time soon. Businesses and governments are likely to reduce spending in the second half of the year. Consumers, who drive most economic growth, aren’t expected to take up the slack. The Commerce Department said Friday that the economy grew at an annual rate of 2.7 percent in the first quarter, offering its third and final estimate for the period. It was slower than initially thought because consumers spent less and imports rose faster that previously calculated. Economists anticipate even slower growth ahead as companies bring their stockpiles more in line with sales. Factory output has climbed this year. But it was driven more by businesses replenishing their warehouses after the recession and less by consumer demand. “The economy is growing, but still at a disappointingly slow pace,” said Zach Pandl, an economist at Nomura Securities. Take away businesses restocking their inventories and “you

Federal government stimulus spending is expected to fade. The European debt crisis could slow U.S. exports and world trade. And state and local governments are likely to rein in spending and raise taxes as they struggle to close budget gaps. “This is still the weakest and longest economic recovery in U.S. postwar history,” said Paul Dales, U.S. economist with Capital Economics. High unemployment and tight credit have kept consumers from ramping up their spending as in past recoveries. The housing industry has played a big role after previous recessions. But this time it is slumping and subtracting

from economic growth. Most economists expect the unemployment rate, currently at 9.7 percent, to remain above 9 percent through the end of the year. The economy has grown for three consecutive quarters after shrinking for four straight during the recession — the longest contraction since World War II. In normal times, 2.7 percent growth would be considered healthy. But it’s relatively weak for a recovery after a steep recession. After the last sharp downturn in the early 1980s, GDP grew at rates of 7 percent to 9 percent for five straight quarters. The department’s report is the third of three estimates it makes for each quarter’s GDP, the

broadest measure of the nation’s economic output. Friday’s figure is below last month’s 3 percent estimate of first quarter growth. The rate declined from earlier reports because consumers spent less than previously estimated, while the nation imported more goods from overseas. The government updates the figures with new information that is released after the initial reports. Consumer spending rose by 3 percent, almost double the pace of the previous quarter. That’s below the previous month’s estimate of a 3.5 percent increase. Businesses ratcheted up their spending on equipment and software by 11.4 percent. Growth of roughly 3 percent is needed just to generate enough jobs to keep up with increasing population. Many economists say growth needs to reach 5 percent for a full year to lower the jobless rate, by one percentage point. In the past three quarters, growth has averaged 3.5 percent. GDP measures the value of all goods and services produced in the United States and is considered the best measure of the country’s economic health.


Childlessness is up, but racial gaps narrowing WASHINGTON (AP) — Nearly 1 in 5 American women beyond childbearing years never gave birth as fewer couples, particularly higher-educated whites, view having children as necessary to a good marriage. An analysis of census data by the Pew Research Center, being released Friday, documents the changes in fertility rates that are driving government projections that

U.S. minorities will become the majority by midcentury. The figures show that among all women ages 40-44, about 18 percent, or 1.9 million, were childless in 2008. That’s up from 10 percent, or nearly 580,000 in 1976. Broken down by race, roughly 20 percent of white women are childless, compared with 17 percent of blacks and of Hispanics and 16 per-

cent of Asians. Still that gap has been narrowing: Since 1994, childlessness for blacks and Hispanics has grown by 30 percent, about three times the rate for whites. The numbers coincide with broader U.S. trends of delayed marriage and increased opportunities for women, who now outnumber men in the work force and have drawn even with them in advanced degrees. After

reaching a high of 3.7 children per woman during the baby boom, the U.S. fertility rate dropped to a historic low of 1.7 during the mid-1970s and stands at about 2. The findings also come amid a historic demographic shift in which blacks, Hispanics, Asians and multiracial people are growing rapidly in the U.S. population and wielding more influence in politics and society.

KERR IN CONTROL AT LPGA CHAMPIONSHIP PITTSFORD, N.Y. (AP) — Cristie Kerr shot a 6-under 66 on Friday to take a five-stroke lead in the LPGA Championship, the tour’s second major of the season. Relying on her chipping and near-perfect putting, Kerr had a 10-under 134 total on the Locust Hill Country Club course. Inbee Park, the 2008 U.S. Women’s Open champion, and Mika Miyazato were tied for second at 5 under after 70s. Brittany Lincicome (69) and Amy Yang (67) were 4 under. Kerr, the 2007 U.S. Women’s Open winner, had a bogey-free round, closing with birdies on four of her last five holes. She won the State Farm Classic two weeks ago for her first victory of the year.

CROMWELL, Conn.

Rose, the Memorial winner three weeks ago who failed to qualify for the U.S. Open last week at Pebble Beach, broke the tournament record for the first 36 holes, finishing at 14under 126. The 62 was one off the course record at TPC River Highlands. Sutherland shot his second straight 65. Vijay Singh (66), Corey Pavin (66), Bill Lunde (63) and Charlie Wi (67) were five strokes back at 9 under.

Larry Woodward says the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback was neither involved nor present when the shooting occurred early Friday. Virginia Beach Police spokesman Adam Bernstein said a man sustained non-life-threatening injuries in the shooting at around 2 a.m. outside the club Guadalajara. Vick’s party had started there late Thursday. Bernstein said he knew nothing about any connection to Vick’s party. Bernstein said the victim was taken to the hospital. He says the victim and witnesses were uncooperative other than describing the shooter as a black man in a white Cadillac Escalade.

Big expectations as U.S. meets Ghana By RONALD BLUM AP Sports Writer

RUSTENBURG, South Africa — For other countries, a secondround World Cup match is a big step. For the United States, Saturday’s game against Ghana is so much more. The television audience

back home could top the U.S. national team record of 13.7 million, set during the 1994 World Cup loss to Brazil. With a victory, the Americans would advance to a quarterfinal matchup versus Uruguay or South Korea on July 2 and match the farthest the U.S. team has

advanced since the first World Cup in 1930. Confidence is soaring. “If we continue to build on the successes so far, we can go to the end,” coach Bob Bradley said Friday. The U.S. team made the 2hour trip Friday northwest from

Irene and checked into the Bakubung Bush Lodge, where the bus was blocked by an elephant ahead of the opener against England on June 12. Players have been stoked since Landon Donovan’s injury-time goal beat

NBA IN BRIEF Bobcats make qualifying offer to Tyrus Thomas

The Moretz Dentistry, a 9-10U baseball team at Northview, recently finished in third place in the regular season and ended up winning the season tournament by beating the top two teams. Moretz scored 32 runs in the three tournament games and allowed just nine runs. Team members are (front row, from left): Daniel Robledo Jr., Chase Stone, Richard McCollum, Levi Whiteman, Tanner Lyczkowski, (second row, from left): Joshua Lett, Bryson Ludwig, Matthew Gautier, Clay Lynch, Grant Johnson, Caleb Leslie, (back row, from left) assistant coach Jeff Johnson, head coach Mark Lyczkowski and assistant coach Greg Stone.

CHARLOTTE (AP) — The Charlotte Bobcats have made a one-year, $6.2 million qualifying offer to Tyrus Thomas, making the power forward a restricted free agent. Friday’s move will allow the Bobcats to match any offer Thomas gets from another team when free agency begins next week. Thomas said on Tuesday he wants to sign a long-term deal with the Bobcats. The fourth overall pick in the 2006 draft by Chicago, Thomas was traded by the Bulls to the Bobcats in February in exchange for Flip Murray, Acie Law and a future first-round pick. Thomas averaged 10.1 points and 6.1 rebounds in 25 games with Charlotte. He closed the season with 21 points and nine rebounds in a playoff loss to Orlando.


N.C. State hires Yow as athletic director RALEIGH (AP) — Debbie Yow expects to see North Carolina State’s sports programs consistently ranking among the nation’s top programs. That should endear the university’s new athletics director quite well to a fan base that wants to see a lot more success from the Wolfpack’s highest-profile teams. N.C. State on Friday lured Yow away from Maryland, where she led an athletics department that won 20 NCAA championships during her 16 years there. Yow replaces Lee Fowler, who resigned in May and ends a 10-year tenure with the Wolfpack next week. “I believe people have seasons in their lives and I’m enthusiasti-

cally entering a new season of my life at N.C. State, coming home to a new and exciting challenge,” Yow said at her first news conference Friday afternoon. “My energy level is high and I’m focused on this special assignment, this special opportunity. I do believe we have strengths to build on.” Yow has a strong tie to N.C. State. The North Carolina native is the younger sister of Kay Yow, the Hall of Fame women’s basketball coach who spent more than three decades with the Wolfpack before her death in January 2009 following a long fight against cancer. Now Yow, like her sister, is making history at N.C. State: She’s the

first woman to serve as A.D. here. “She’s coming home to her roots to a state and a university where the Yow name is indeed something special in the past and will be something very special in the future,” said Atlantic Coast Conference commissioner John Swofford, who attended the news conference. Yow, 58, had told The Associated Press on Thursday night that she planned to travel to Raleigh to meet with the search committee, though she wouldn’t say whether she had been offered or accepted the A.D. job. N.C. State’s board of trustees approved a five-year contract for Yow on Friday morning that will pay her a base salary of $350,000, though there is a possible $100,000 per year in supplemental compensation from the school’s marketing agreement as well as incentives for team performance and academics. Fowler’s contract, which was to expire in 2013, paid him

$280,000 in annual base salary. Yow inherits a program at N.C. State that has spent millions on facility upgrades — most notably in football — yet has a frustrated fan base with the slow growth of its two highest-profile teams. In football, Fowler hired Tom O’Brien away from Boston College only to see the Wolfpack reach just one bowl game in his first three seasons. In men’s basketball, Fowler hired former Wolfpack player Sidney Lowe after a monthlong search that missed on top targets like John Calipari and Rick Barnes. Lowe inherited a program that had been to five straight NCAA tournaments, but he has failed to reach the NCAAs as he enters his fifth season while nearby rivals North Carolina and Duke have won the past two national championships. One of Fowler’s last coaching hires was Kellie Harper as Kay Yow’s successor. Harper, who was on the search committee, led her team to the NCAA tournament in her first season. Yow said she would expect all fully funded sports teams to be “a national top-25 program, moving toward top-10 status and competing for national championships.”

White Sox win 10th straight, top fighting Cubs 6-0 CHICAGO (AP) — Screaming Cubs starter Carlos Zambrano had to be separated from teammate Derrek Lee in the dugout, and the Chicago White Sox beat their crosstown rivals 6-0 Friday for their 10th straight win. Jake Peavy (7-5) allowed three hits over seven innings, Carlos Quentin hit his fourth homer in four games, and the White Sox matched their longest winning streak in 34 years. But all that was overshadowed by the confrontation in the visitor’s dugout following the White Sox’s four-run first inning. Zambrano (3-6) screamed as he walked down the dugout steps past Lee and stormed toward the other end. Lee appeared to yell something, and as Zambrano headed back toward him, manager Lou Piniella, pitching coach Larry Rothschild, and bench coach

Alan Trammell stepped between them. Cubs catcher Geovany Soto grabbed the pitcher from behind and pulled him away. Zambrano appeared to say something to Piniella on his way to the clubhouse after being lifted for Tom Gorzelanny, who came out to pitch the second inning. The volatile Zambrano might have been angry at Lee for failing to stop Juan Pierre’s leadoff double down the right-field line. Alex Rios doubled him in with one out, and after Paul Konerko singled, Quentin made it 4-0 with his 12th homer. He drove an 0-2 pitch to left-center and sent the White Sox to their 14th win in 15 games. Zambrano then struck out Mark Kotsay and retired A.J. Pierzynski on a grounder to first, taking the throw from Lee to end the inning before things really got interesting.

Montoya takes pole in Loudon LOUDON, N.H. (AP) — Juan Pablo Montoya has found his groove at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Montoya turned a lap of 132.337 mph and won the pole in Friday’s qualifying — the second straight time he’ll start first at New Hampshire. Montoya won his first pole of the season after taking two last season. Montoya is looking for his first career NASCAR win on an oval. “We have been very close as a team to winning races,” he said. Starting first could help. He set a track record at New Hampshire last September to win the pole, and parlayed that into a third-place finish. “I think last year we were too conservative here against Mark Martin, but it was the beginning of the Chase and we thought we needed to be very smart and take the points,” Montoya said. “Right now, we are kind of in the same situation. We need a lot of points. We’ll see what happens.” The former Formula One star made NASCAR’s Chase for the Sprint Cup championship for the first time last season. He’s a disappointing 20th entering Sunday’s race — 161 points out of the 12th and final place in the Chase field.

SPORTS BRIEFS and that sounds fun to me.”

Driver Danica Patrick is followed by fans after practice for the NASCAR Nationwide New England 200 auto race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, N.H., Friday.

Patrick has modest goals in NASCAR return LOUDON, N.H. (AP) — Danica Patrick can kick up her heels in style in her NASCAR return. Patrick received a pair of flashy Yves St. Laurent platform heels Friday just for showing up to race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Track general manager Jerry Gappens gave the IndyCar driver the shoes as a gift for running in the Nationwide Series race — an upgrade from the lobsters he delivered to her last year to persuade her to race on the 1-mile track. Gappens said the goldcolored shoes cost about $1,000. Small price to pay for the expected 30 percent attendance spike Patrick’s presence will create for Saturday’s race. Yes, glitz and glamour was back in NASCAR on Friday with Patrick making her anticipated return

to the second-tier series. Patrick, racing’s cover girl, was flattered by the gift and all the attention heaped on her at New Hampshire. Patrick’s news conference was packed with photographers and reporters — even Speedway Motorsports Inc. owner Bruton Smith grabbed a frontrow seat — and she was charming and funny while attempting to downplay expectations for Saturday. She can sell tickets with her sex appeal, and she’d like to put on a show for the fans in her brief dip into NASCAR. “I’m lucky people are curious about me, I’m lucky I have great fans,” she said. “I want to do well for them. I know they came to see something and I want to show them something. It’s really awesome.” She got a sneak peak at

AP source: Marlins, Valentine talks slowing down

CLEVELAND (AP) — Los Angeles Lakers assistant coach Brian Shaw has been given permission to interview with the Cleveland Cavaliers about their coaching vacancy. Lakers spokesman John Black said the NBA champions granted a request from the Cavs a few days ago. Black did not know when Shaw plans to speak with Cleveland officials. Shaw has spent five seasons on Phil Jackson’s staff. He is expected to be a strong candidate to replace Jackson if the 11-time champion decides to retire. Earlier this week, Jackson said he was leaning toward retirement but won’t make a final decision for several days.

MIAMI (AP) — A person familiar with the Florida Marlins’ managerial search says a formal interview with Bobby Valentine has been put on hold although he remains a top candidate for the job. The person spoke on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press because the Marlins had not authorized any public comment. A reason for the slowdown could be because the Marlins play a threegame series in Puerto Rico starting Monday. Interim manager Edwin Rodriguez is from Puerto Rico and there is sentiment within the organization to allow him to manage that series. The Marlins are looking to replace Fredi Gonzalez, the franchise’s all-time victory leader who was fired Wednesday.

Turner eager to get started with 76ers

the track Thursday night when JR Motorsports co-owner Dale Earnhardt Jr. took her for a spin for a tutorial on what to expect once she gets behind the wheel of the No. 7 Chevy. “She just wanted me to show her what was going on with the track and how the corners are and stuff,” Earnhardt said. “That’s pretty much it.” Patrick got another crash course on Friday with a pair of practices that show she still has a steep learning curve as she switches circuits. It’s not as simple as step on the gas and go. She was 43rd on the first practice early Friday. She said a top-15 or a top-20 finish would be a success. Patrick fared no better than 31st in three starts on the Nationwide Series in February.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — New 76ers draft pick Evan Turner says he’s looking forward to facing the top players in the world on a nightly basis when the NBA season starts. Philadelphia introduced Turner on Friday, and the Ohio State standout who was the second overall pick of Thursday’s draft stressed how excited he is to get to work with his new team and its new coach, Doug Collins. Turner said he’ll need to become more consistent with the his long-range shooting, and is eager to join fellow guard Jrue Holiday in the backcourt for the Sixers in the summer league. Before holding up a No. 12 jersey, Turner stressed how important defense is saying, ““Defense is all about a mentality, all about not letting your man score,

Edmonton chooses Taylor Hall withtop pick in NHL draft LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Edmonton Oilers have selected forward Taylor Hall with the No. 1 pick in the NHL draft. The league-worst Oilers chose Hall over fellow OHL forward Tyler Seguin on Friday, making the toughest call at the top of a draft in several years. Most NHL scouts and executives couldn’t choose a favorite between Hall, a physical left wing from the Windsor Spitfires, and Seguin, a smooth-skating center from the Plymouth Whalers. The Boston Bruins have the No. 2 pick.

Algeria on Wednesday and lifted them into the knockout phase. “The way we’ve been playing, feeling like we’ve gone undefeated and we’ve gotten stronger, I think that gives us hope,” goalkeeper Tim Howard said. American sports fans have been focusing on soccer at an unprecedented level. Former President Clinton attended Wednesday’s game in Pretoria and chugged a postgame beer with captain Carlos Bocanegra. New Orleans Saints running back Reggie Bush joined the party. Clinton changed his schedule to stick around for the Ghana game. “People were coming out of the woodworks to celebrate,” Bocanegra said. The Columbus Crew, FC Dallas, New England Revolution and New York Red Bulls of Major League Soccer are among those hosting viewing parties. The Kansas City Royals are setting up televisions around Kauffman Stadium so fans can watch while attending the baseball game against the St. Louis Cardinals. “You want to have a team that the people who care about ... and follow that team and root for that team and can feel part of,” coach Bob Bradley said Friday. “A team that people believe in and a team that people are proud of. And so, that’s part of our responsibility, and we’re excited in the moment that there’s that kind of feeling.” Saturday’s game, nationally televised by ABC starting at 2:30 p.m. EDT, will be the third for the Americans at Royal Bafokeng Stadium. They had a 3-0 win over Egypt in last year’s Confederations Cup and the 1-1 draw with the English in this tournament. The U.S. is coming off a 2-2 tie against Slovenia, when the Americans rallied from a two-goal deficit and saw an 85th-minute goal controversially disallowed, and the thrilling 1-0 victory over the Algerians. It would appear the U.S. has a favorable path to the semifinals, a round it reached for the only time 80 years ago. The Americans are ranked 14th, well ahead of Ghana (32nd) and South Korea (47th) and slightly in front of Uruguay (18th). While the U.S. finished atop its first-round group for the first time since 1930, it hasn’t won consecutive World Cup games in 80 years. And in Ghana, it plays the only one of six African teams to have survived past the group phase. All African fans figure to be supporting the

to take over and provide a stern test of golf. “The course is in the best shape we’ve had it in probably the last 10 years for the Brick Capital,” Honeycutt said. “It is playing firm and fast.” Of course, Mother Nature giveth and taketh away. While the course is being set up to play hard and fast, the lack of rain recently has meant the rough hasn’t grown up much. Honeycutt said it’s been about 10 days since the rough was last cut, and there’s been little growth. Because of that, he thinks a course that might’ve been able to crown a winner around par could be had for as low as 5 under. Maybe. “There are really no

Black Stars. “Ghana is the African hope now,” defender Samuel Inkoom said. “We aren’t going to disappoint them.” Four years ago, the Americans played Ghana in their final first-round game and needed a victory to advance. Ghana went ahead early only for Clint Dempsey to tie it. But the Black Stars won the game on Stephen Appiah’s penalty kick after a foul called by German referee Markus Merk against Oguchi Onyewu. “An injustice,” Onyewu said. “I still to this day don’t know where the foul came from.” Ghana had just two goals in the group phase, penalty kicks by Asamoah Gyan against Serbia and Australia. Gyan, a teammate of Bocanegra’s on Rennes, also scored against the Czech Republic in the 2006 World Cup after 68 seconds, the fastest goal of that tournament. “He’s got a great leap. He’s really good in the air. He’s powerful and fast,” Bocanegra said. “He spearheads their attack.” Right back John Pantsil is a teammate of Dempsey on Fulham, but Ghana is missing its top player, midfielder Michael Essien, out since January with a knee injury. A four-time African champion, the Black Stars lost 1-0 to Egypt in this year’s African Cup of Nations final. Coach Milovan Rajevac is familiar with American soccer, having spent several seasons playing with an indoor team in New York. “America has grown into a football superpower,” he said. Rajevac said central defenders John Mensah and Jonathan Mensah will play despite getting banged up against Germany on Wednesday, but Isaac Vorsah, another central defender, still is sidelined by a strained knee ligament.

problem spots on the course,” Honeycutt said, referring the overall condition of the track. “In the past, there were a couple of problem spots on a couple of the greens, but everything’s filled in great this year.” The field has filled in well, too. More than 140 players have entered the tournament, which will be flighted after Saturday’s first round. In that field are considerable contenders. N.C. Pembroke golfer McCurry, who recently qualified for next month’s U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship, returns to try to win back-to-back Brick Capital titles. He will be in the same group as three-time winner Craig Sturdivant and college teammate Carson Lanier, who won in 2008 and was a runner-up to McCurry last year. Also in the field is four-

Brazil wins Group G after 0-0 draw with Portugal DURBAN, South Africa (AP) — Two of soccer’s most powerful offenses didn’t score Friday and Brazil won Group G after a listless 0-0 draw with Portugal, which also advanced to the second round. Brazil striker Nilmar had a shot tipped against the goalpost by Portugal keeper Eduardo in the 30th minute, and Luis Fabiano’s close-range header just missed wide in the 39th.

Spain 2, Chile 1 PRETORIA, South Africa (AP) — David Villa and Andres Iniesta each scored as Spain beat Chile 2-1 on Friday at the World Cup, a result that sends both teams on to the round of 16. Villa got his goal on a shot from 45 yards out in the 24th minute, when goalkeeper Claudio Bravo came out of his area and cleared a ball straight to the Spain striker. Iniesta doubled the advantage by beating Bravo with a rightfooted shot from the edge of the area in the 37th, with Marco Estrada ejected after collecting his second yellow card on the play.

Ivory Coast 3, North Korea 0

WIMBLEDON, England (AP) — One day after winning the longest tennis match in history, John Isner lost the shortest men’s match at Wimbledon so far this year. It was back to normal, meanwhile, for defending champion Roger Federer, who showed he was back at the top of his game by sweeping Arnaud Clement in straight sets to reach the fourth round in his bid for a seventh Wimbledon crown. Marathon man Isner looked weary from the outset Friday, required treatment for a neck injury and was beaten by unseeded Thiemo de Bakker of the Netherlands 6-0, 6-3, 6-2. The second-round match was over in just 1 hour, 14 minutes, and the five games won by Isner is the fewest by a male player this week. It was a complete turn-

around from Isner’s epic three-day victory over Nicolas Mahut, which lasted 11 hours, 5 minutes and went to 70-68 in the fifth set. What’s more, Isner served no aces Friday after hitting a record 112 against Mahut. “I’ve never been this exhausted before,” Isner said. “Mentally and physically, I was obviously a bit drained. I just didn’t have much in the way of my legs. I was just low on fuel out there. Didn’t really have a chance.” Starting shortly after noon in warm sunshine, Isner received a standing ovation when he walked onto court. He immediately lost his serve — something that didn’t happen once in his never-ending fifth set against Mahut. “The turnaround time — he just didn’t have enough time to get his body

right,” said Isner’s coach, Craig Boynton. “He’s one tired boy.” Federer looked perfectly fresh as he demolished Clement 6-2, 6-4, 6-2, playing like the old grass-court master himself after being stretched to five sets in his first-round match and four in the second. Federer saved the only break point against him, hit 29 winners, made only 12 unforced errors and left Centre Court to a rousing standing ovation. “I get standing ovations 99 percent of the time — doesn’t matter if the performance was great or not so great,” he said. “I think they’re happy to see me, and they love tennis. ... But of course, when I end up winning, and they give me a reception like this, it feels good at the heart.”

NELSPRUIT, South Africa (AP) — Yaya Toure, Koffi Romaric N’Dri and Salomon Kalou all scored for Ivory Coast in a 3-0 win over North Korea at the World Cup, but the Elephants still won’t advance to the round of 16. Ivory Coast started Friday needing a big win and a Portugal loss to Brazil to have any chance of moving on. But Brazil and Portugal tied 0-0, putting the Portuguese into the next round.

Switzerland 0, Honduras 0 BLOEMFONTEIN, South Africa (AP) — Honduras held Switzerland to a 0-0 draw in Group H of the World Cup on Friday, a result that knocked both teams out of the tournament. The Swiss could have locked up a spot in the second round with a two-goal win over Honduras. But Switzerland played with little urgency or creative flair until late in the match, and it couldn’t turn its domination of possession into quality scoring opportunities. Honduras almost stole a win in the 71st minute, but goalkeeper Diego Benaglio denied a wide-open Edgar Alvarez with a brilliant one-handed save.

time winner Gerald Harrington, as well as two-time champion David Wicker. Past winners Paul Gay, Currie Howell, Ray Epley and Don Marks will also play this year, and area standouts Jack Radley, Zac Lewis and Micah Lawrence will be seeking their first Brick championship. “You always have to watch out for any of the past champions,” Honeycutt said, “but there are a lot of really good players in the field.” The tournament will be played from the 5,900-yard white tees on Saturday, with shotgun starts at 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. After the first round, the tournament will be flighted, with the championship and first flights slated to play from the 6,300-yard blue tees in the final round on Sunday. A senior division is also open to players 62 and over.

Matchmaking mom wants son’s gal pal in the family DEAR ABBY: “Todd” and I have been close friends since eighth grade. We’re now in our mid-20s, and over the years I have gotten to know his family. His mother, “Cindy,” is a kind and darling woman and I like her a lot. The problem is, she has it in her head that I am perfect for Todd. On more than one occasion she has gone so far as to ask me why I don’t marry him. Todd and I have always been close, but I have never had any interest in him beyond friendship. In fact, I am involved in a serious relationship right now with a man I love dearly. Is there a way to stop Cindy from making suggestive comments without hurting her feelings? — HOLDING MY TONGUE FOR NOW IN MINNESOTA

Happy Birthday: You’ll face unexpected alterations to your plans, leaving you to find your own footing. So much of this year is dependent on the choices you make and the way you handle others. This is the year to size up your situation and to make a decision that allows you to move on with your life. Put an end to what’s not working. Your numbers are 2, 5, 14, 21, 28, 32, 41 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Separate from an emotional situation that can curb your enthusiasm or cause you stress. Focus more on having fun and enjoying friends. Don’t allow anyone to guilt you into taking on a something you’re not ready to deal with. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You’ll be eager and ready to take on any challenge. Travel will inspire you but can also be riddled with delays, so prepare to enjoy downtime instead of letting it frustrate you. Contemplate what you want to do in the future. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Tie up any loose ends pertaining to contracts, settlements or health matters. Do your best to include the people you love most in your plans. You’ll be taken for granted emotionally or financially if you give in to solicitations. CANCER (June 21-July 22): You’ll be emotional about money matters and settlements. Don’t let anyone see your true feelings or give away information that might influence the outcome of a deal you are trying to make. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You have to plan a trip or take in an event or entertainment you haven’t experienced in the past. It will take your mind off some of the emotional issues you have going on at work or with a peer. Don’t make a decision before you have all the facts.


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You can make headway if, and only if, you take control. Networking is favored. Once you have a better idea regarding your options, you will not be as vulnerable or likely to lose financially. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don’t let your emotions rule what you do or say. Get out of the house or away from anyone who causes you sorrow or judges you harshly. Do something to relax, enhance your looks or boost your confidence. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Make up your mind and keep moving. It’s waffling back and forth that will leave people wondering if you can do the job they expect of you. This is a fabulous time to work on something creative. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Avoid getting into any sort of rift with friends, neighbors or relatives if you don’t want to lose the connection. The situation will turn ugly if you exaggerate. A wrong move now will cost you emotionally and financially. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): You’ll be determined to get your way, however, if that means being overindulgent, overdoing or overreacting, you will probably fall short of your goal. Don’t let your uncertainty or jealousy lead to trouble. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Look for any opportunity that will help your financial situation. Being extravagant to make an impression or win someone’s love will not pan out. An extra job will enable you to pay for the items that would make your life better. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Improving your surroundings will turn out well and bring you lots of compliments. Taking care of some of your own personal needs will help to enhance your looks and your attitude. Share your plans but don’t make promises if you cannot follow through.

DEAR HOLDING YOUR TONGUE: Todd’s mother’s attempts at matchmaking may be annoying, but they’re the greatest compliment a mother can pay a young woman. The next time she does it, smile and tell her that if you could clone yourself you would because you think she’d be the best motherin-law in the world, but you’re seeing someone and the relationship is serious. o DEAR ABBY: I am a 48-year-old man about to be married for the second time. My bride, “Jennifer,” is significantly younger than I,

but aside from that, we’re alike on most issues. We have lived together for five years and have two beautiful daughters, ages 3 and 7. We are now involved in making wedding plans. I know it’s a woman’s special day, but when I ask the normal question of “How much does it cost?” Jennifer becomes unglued. She says she’s aware that we don’t have an unlimited budget, and she’s sick and tired of my always asking about the costs and saying things are too expensive. Today she went off again when I said that the diamond-encrusted wedding band she wants me to wear was too expensive, and a simple gold band is fine for me. I told Jennifer to cut out the Bridezilla attitude. Money is a factor in a wedding, and since I’m part of it, my opinion should matter as much as hers. Now she’s stomping around in a huff, and I’m at the end of my rope. If this is how she acts now, what about after the wedding? Am

DEAR GROOM (?): You’re not an idiot. You are asking some very intelligent questions. One of the most frequent causes of divorce is arguments over money. So before you go any further, stop the music and insist that the two of you get premarital counseling to ensure that you really are on the same page. It could save you a bundle — of heartache and money. o

DEAR ABBY: I am 17 and popular in school. I have a lot of friends, but inside I feel like I’m not good enough to go out with the popular boys I like. I am friends with them all, but they always pay more attention to the prettier girls. I know I should feel privileged to be popular, but what can I do to get the guys to notice me more? I sometimes stay up crying at night over this. — WANTS MORE IN PENNSYLVANIA DEAR WANTS MORE: I’ll tell you a secret. Fear of failure can become a self-fulfilling prophecy — and so can success. The more you dwell on your “deficiencies,” the more pronounced they’ll become. So, act more confident and soon you will be.

ODDS AND ENDS Parent brawl erupts at CA kindergarten graduation VICTORVILLE, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say two women have been arrested following a parents’ brawl that interrupted a Southern California kindergarten graduation ceremony. School officials placed Puesta del Sol Elementary in the desert town of Victorville on lockdown Wednesday morning after a fight broke out among a group of parents. The San Bernardino County sheriff’s department says witnesses told deputies several mothers were involved in an argument and it got physical in a field near the ceremony. Several men then jumped into the fray, and the incident turned into a brawl. A deputy later arrested two people on suspicion of being a disruptive presence at a school. Witnesses said they were the main instigators. In all, 20 adults were identified in the brawl. A school district official says there could be more arrests. There were no reported injuries.

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 dur-

MY ANSWER ing a party late Sunday at his home. Police say Durham recalled calling the friend’s girlfriend ugly. The Peoria man then heard a pop as he took a drink from a bottle of whiskey. But police say he felt no pain. Durham told officers he went to sleep around 3 a.m. Monday and discovered the wound about four hours later. Police questioned Durham while he was being treated at a local hospital. He declined to identify the man he suspects shot him.

Springfield car thieves target Honda stereos SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) — Springfield police are perplexed by a rash of car thefts in which just one brand of car has been targeted, and just one part has been stolen. Police say more than 20 Honda Accords and Civics from the 1994 to 1997 model years have been stolen since last Thursday, and in most cases, the only thing missing when the vehicles are recovered is the factory-installed stereo. Mid-1990s Hondas are popular with car thieves, but members of the auto theft unit can’t figure out why only the stereos are being taken. Sgt. John Delaney says detectives have dusted the stolen cars for finger prints and are pursuing leads. Meanwhile, he says, police are urging Honda owners to lock their vehicles and invest in anti-theft systems.

Don’t be deceived by Satan’s lies Q: Why does the devil keep trying to win the battle between good and evil, when he must know that at the end of time he’s not going to be the victor? God is going to win in the end, isn’t He? -- A.N. A: Yes, God -- not Satan -- certainly is going to be the victor! At the end of time, the final battle in this great spiritual conflict will be fought, and God will triumph over Satan forever (see Revelation 20:10). Not only that, but all the evils that have come into the world because of Satan’s rebellion against God will be destroyed. Sin... sickness... death... sorrow... suffering -- all these will come to an end, and God’s people will dwell safely in His presence forever. One of the Bible’s greatest promises speaks of that day: “He will wipe away every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away” (Revelation 21:4). Why doesn’t Satan just give up? The Bible doesn’t tell us -- but one reason may be because he doesn’t believe what God says about his eventual fate. The very first question in the Bible came from Satan’s lips, telling Eve that God was a liar and His word couldn’t be trusted (see Genesis 3:1-4). Satan’s goal is to take God’s place, and perhaps he still believes he can do it. But he can’t. Are you on the winning side? Is your faith and hope in Jesus Christ? Don’t be deceived by Satan’s temptations.

NASCAR co-founder dies at 96 The NASCAR world lost its original gentleman car owner, Raymond Parks, this week as he died at his Atlanta home at age 96. Parks was one of the first-ever car owners when the sport of stock car racing was getting started back in the 1930s. He was the last surviving member of the group that met at the Streamline Hotel in Daytona Beach, Fla., in 1947 to form NASCAR. His cars won both the championship of the first Modified season in 1948 and the first in Strictly Stock a year later. The Strictly Stock division evolved into the Sprint Cup Series. His drivers included many of the sport’s alltime best. Among them were Lloyd Seay, Roy Hall, Red Byron, Bob and Fonty Flock and Bill France Sr., who drove Parks’ cars on occasion and was able to build the sport in large part because of the quality of cars and drivers that Parks provided. Parks’ NASCAR career ended in the early 1950s, when he turned his attention to his businesses in Atlanta. Last year, he donated his championship-winning trophies to the NASCAR Hall of Fame, and he attended the Hall’s induction ceremony last month.

Thrown for a


‘Phantom debris’ debated

Infineon race brings surprises in a season that’s been full of them


ven in the midst of a wacky Sprint Cup season, Sunday’s Toyota/Save Mart 350 at Infineon Raceway stood out. That race might best be described as a combination of things one wouldn’t expect to see in an ordinary Sprint Cup Series race, even in the era when the boys have been told by series officials to “have at it.” A driver closing in on his first career Cup win, with a dominant car and seemingly plenty of fuel in the tank, stalls the car in an uphill portion of the track, apparently trying to alternately cut his engine on and off to save gasoline. That driver, Marcos Ambrose, the almost always upbeat Australian, seemed deflated and crushed afterward. Many in the media, including the TV commentators, said his blunder was the biggest in NASCAR since Mark Martin pulled off the track on the white flag lap while leading under caution at Bristol Motor Speedway in a Nationwide Series race in 1994. Then there was the dismal day for Joe Gibbs Racing, which for the past several weeks has been all but unbeatable in the Sprint Cup Series.

A variety of misfortunes saw the three-driver team fail to crack the top 30 in the finishing order. Joey Logano was best of the three with a 33rd-place run. Denny Hamlin, who had won five of the previous 10 Cup races, struggled to a 34th-place finish, and Kyle Busch was 39th. In fairness, team owner Joe Gibbs has been saying for weeks that his team’s phenomenal run could end any day. “This can all turn on a dime,” Gibbs said after Hamlin won at Pocono Raceway. “We know how pro sports are. I’m never confident, or I don’t think anybody on our team feels like we’ve arrived for sure.” Jeff Gordon was uncharacteristically aggressive on the track, a fact pointed out more than once by the TNT broadcasters covering the race – and by Elliott Sadler and others afterward. “We got taken out by [Jeff] Gordon,” Sadler said in his postrace interview. “He took out Martin Truex for no reason. The 33 [Clint Bowyer] and me were side-by-side and he got two-forone there, so he was just kind of knocking everything out of his way.”

Jimmie Johnson celebrates after winning Sunday’s Toyota/Save Mart 350 at Infineon Raceway. (NASCAR photo) To his credit, Gordon didn’t entirely disagree. “Guys were making it three wide, and I’m as guilty of it as anybody,” he said. “After they started doing it to me, I had to do it to others. There are some things that I’m not proud of that I did today; certainly with Martin [Truex Jr.]. I mean, I completely messed that up and I will try to patch

that up. Other things that happened out there were just really hard racing incidents.” And then Jimmie Johnson won on a road course, a feat that was somewhat overshadowed by the other events of the day. It’s something the four-time Cup champion had never done before in his entire career, even though his formative years in the sport were spent racing motorcycle and offroad vehicles that should have prepared him for success on tracks where drivers turn both left and right and drive up and down hills. But those who follow Johnson and his team shouldn’t have been too surprised. They’ve been testing regularly in an effort to allow him and the No. 48 team to cross another item off their “bucket list.” Earlier this year, Johnson ended a career-long drought at Bristol Motor Speedway. But he said there still are a few entries on that shrinking list. “It’s not complete,” he said. “I think we have four more tracks to work on to try and win at all of them. I’m just happy to get back to Victory Lane, especially at a track that has been so tough on me over the years.”

Road-course race highlights need for track variety ASK RICK! “Should there be more road-course races on the Sprint Cup schedule and should one of them be in the Chase for the Sprint Cup?” A: Not necessarily, but some variety in the size and shapes of races tracks appears to be universally desired among race drivers and fans. One of the biggest complaints heard over the years is about the similarity of the racing at the “cookie-cutter” mile-and-a-half tracks. Some of the most interesting racing occurs at places that are different, like the flat half-mile oval Martinsville Speedway and the high-banked half-mile Bristol Motor Speedway, or at the 2.5-mile Daytona International Speedway and at Talladega Superspeedway, just a shade longer than Daytona. Tony Stewart, who is as versatile a driver as they come in motorsports, said he’d rather see NASCAR make a really big change if its decision-makers decided to shake up the Chase lineup. “I’m still trying to get them to add a dirt race to the Chase,” he told reporters at Infineon Raceway last week. “That is going to be my focus before I worry about getting a road course in the Chase.” Mark Martin weighed in on the issue at Infineon, saying it would be difficult to add a road course to an already busy schedule. “I think if you look at the schedule, that’s pretty selfexplanatory,” he said. “That’s kind of a pie in the sky

question, to me, because our schedule is full. So how are we going to have more road courses? Take ovals away? That’s not a popular answer either. “I will tell you this. NASCAR has brought the sport to where it is today. Had I been in charge, it wouldn’t be anywhere as near where it is today.” But many drivers, including four-time champion Jimmie Johnson, point out that the two road-course races, at Infineon and at Watkins Glen, do play a role in the championship hunt even though they’re not among the final 10 Chase races. Race winners who make the Chase get 10 bonus points for each regular season win, and points earned at road courses could be the difference in making the Chase and missing it. Johnson said road-course races “could affect the championship, and I think the effort has been made for these teams to be better at road-course racing.” And he added that road-course racing is increasingly popular among his generation of drivers and those even younger. “We have a younger generation of drivers that have some type of road-course-racing background or interest in their minds,” he said. “The older generation was just ‘get out of here and move on’ – didn’t care. “I think this younger generation enjoys road-course racing. It means more to us.” Road-racing fans also can take heart in the fact that the inaugural Nationwide Series race at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wis., last Saturday drew an impressive crowd, with estimates ranging from 50,000 to nearly 100,000, which is a strong turnout for a Nationwide race.

NASCAR doesn’t have TV timeouts or other means to ratchet up interest at the end of a race. Some say that’s where “debris” comes in. Denny Hamlin said after his win at Michigan that NASCAR officials threw a “debris” caution simply to bunch the field and prevent a runaway victory. His comments continued to be the talk of the garage and media center a week later. Hamlin stood by his remarks during his media session at Infineon Raceway. “I think there’s always debris around the track, without a doubt you can call anything debris,” he said. His issue is the timing of the caution flags and their effect on the outcome of the race. “For the sake of show, it’s OK, but for the sake of competition, it’s not always the right thing,” he said. Jeff Gordon, asked whether the issue hurts the credibility of the sport, answered by saying Hamlin should have voiced his concerns in a different manner. “What we’ve learned the past couple years is that I think [NASCAR officials] are totally OK with that being brought up, but not necessarily in public,” he said. “Have that discussion, but don’t use the media to get that recognized and get that changed. “Ever since I’ve been driving a stock car, the phantom debris has always been an issue ...” Gordon said. “But, I think until you go up and you’re sitting next to them while they’re calling a race ... you don’t really know what all it truly entails.”

Daytona track to be repaved Next month’s Sprint Cup race at Daytona International Speedway will be the last on the old surface that has been in place since 1978. Most drivers enjoyed racing on the old abrasive pavement, but after potholes developed during the Daytona 500, track officials decided to repave the track after the Coke Zero 400. “We’re going to miss the old pavement,” Jeff Gordon said, adding that new asphalt often doesn’t make for as good a race. “You just don’t have the aggregate at the top that’s making the abrasiveness to wear out the tires.” he said. “... We’re going to try to take advantage of the old pavement and enjoy it as much as we can, and slip and slide around there a little bit like we normally do in July.”
