SANFORD — Summer is often a time of cookouts, pool-side relaxation and outdoor fun, but it can also be harmful if people aren’t careful in the heat. In the northeast and along the coast, temperatures have been creeping above 100 degrees. Portions of Central North Carolina saw temperatures reach as high as 102 degrees Wednesday. The good news is the severe heat is expected to give way to somewhat cooler temperatures the rest of the week. But Franklin Hargett, an urgent care physician at Pine Ridge Urgent Care in Sanford, said people need to exercise caution and listen to their bodies’ warning signs if they want to stay safe in the heat. “The earliest signs (of heat-related illness) are in-

SANFORD — LaVonne Yount thinks the name for her pizza parlor is a match made in heaven: Cheesus Crust Pizzeria and More. “It’s an association with something good, something pure,” Yount said. “People love pizza, people love Jesus, right?” Yount and her husband, Chris, hope to open the new pizzeria on South Moore Street in downtown Sanford later this year. The signs are in the window with the name tentatively in place — Yount is also considering “Slice of Heaven” — but the couple will still have to move mountains to transform the vacant antiques shop into a pizza parlor. The couple is currently drawing up pizza oven ventilation plans to be inspected by the county, the first hurdle of many they face before Cheeses Crust can open. The permit and remodeling process could take up to several months, according to Assistant Planning Director Marshall Downey — anything less would take a miracle. Yount and her husband picked Sanford for their move from Pompano Beach, Florida, because they liked the name and the “down-home” feel of the town. This would be their first pizzeria, a new challenge after years building their marble and tile business in Florida. They plan to offer free wireless internet access along with their specialty New York-style slices, and hope the location will attract crowds from Depot Park

Drug bust nets fugitive in two other counties

SANFORD — During a drug sting Tuesday, Lee County investigators say they arrested a Sanford woman who was a fugitive in other counties. Capt. John Holly of the Lee County Sheriff’s Office said agents arrested 33-year-old Cecilia Irene Timmons of 5316 North Lakes Drive in Sanford Tuesday following an undercover operation in the Deep River community. Timmons is charged with possession with intent to sell a counterfeit controlled substance, identity theft, resisting a public officer and possession of drug paraphernalia. Holly said Timmons did not cooperate with agents and gave false identification before investigators discovered her real name. In addition to the Lee County investigation, Timmons is facing charges from Moore and Randolph counties too, deputies said. In Moore County, Timmons was wanted for child abuse, assault on a child under 12 and speeding to elude arrest, Holly said. He said Timmons was also wanted in Randolph for assault with a deadly weapon on a government official, fleeing to elude arrest and resisting a public officer. Holly said the woman was wanted as well by the N.C. Department of Corrections for absconding on her parole. She was placed in Lee County Jail under a $100,000 secured bond, the Sheriff’s Office said. Timmons is also listed in N.C. Department of Corrections records under the name Cecilia Tate. Her list of convictions includes simple assault, writing worthless checks, larceny, credit card fraud and resisting an officer. — Billy Ball

CCCC’s Shull serves as college AP exam reader

SANFORD — Johnny Shull, lead instructor for business and economics at Central Carolina Community College, participated in the reading and scoring of the College Board’s Advanced Placement Examinations in AP Economics. The reading took place in Cincinnati in June. Shull has taught at the college since 2005. In Shull 2008, he served as a GlaxoSmithKline Faculty Fellow of the Institute for Emerging Issues at North Carolina State University. AP examination reading is a unique forum in which academic dialogue between high school and college educators is fostered and strongly encouraged.

Acknowledgment of Appreciation We would like to express our thanks for your thoughts, kind words, and many prayers during our recent loss. Thank You, and continue to keep us close to your hearts and in your prayers.

The Family of Mr. Russell J. Johnson

“The reading draws upon the talents of some of the finest teachers and professors that the world has to offer,” said Trevor Packer, vice president of the Advanced Placement Program at the College Board. “It fosters professionalism, allows for the exchange of ideas, and strengthens the commitment to students and to teaching. We are very grateful for the contributions of talented educators like Johnny Shull.” More than 2.9 million examinations from more than 30 AP courses were evaluated by more than 10,000 AP readers. They represented many of the finest academic institutions in the United States, Canada and abroad. Each year, the AP Program gives more than 1.5 million high school students an opportunity to take rigorous college-level courses and examinations. Based on their exam performance, successful students can receive credit and/or advanced placement when they enter college. — by Katherine McDonald

Park to dedicate new visitor center Special to The Herald

LILLINGTON — A new 7,190-square-foot visitor center and related facilities at Raven Rock State Park in Harnett County, which was designed to national green building standards, will be formally dedicated next week by the N.C. Division of Parks and Recreation. The 10 a.m. ceremony on July 17, is open to the public and will celebrate an important milestone in the history of the state park. Similar to visitor centers built at 19 state parks and state recreation areas since 1994, the facility at Raven Rock will offer a unique design

CARY (MCT) — Thousands of Western Wake citizens are petitioning against a report that recommends expanding a portion of U.S. 64 into a freeway. The petition, signed by about 2,800 people, was submitted to transportation officials Wednesday, formalizing more than a year of citizen outcry over the U.S. 64 Draft Corridor Study. The study, released in early May by the N.C. Department of Transportation, looks at a four-lane, 19-mile stretch that passes through western Wake. The study offers solutions based on traffic estimates over the next 30 years. The latest draft of the study had dropped some ideas — such as turning U.S. 64 into an elevated expressway or installing a “superstreet” at the clogged intersection with Laura Duncan Road -- that were unpopular with some residents.

a focal point for the park and a gathering place for visitors, the center will be a place to learn about the state park and its natural resources. Like all our visitor centers, it offers an integrated exhibit hall, a teaching auditorium and classrooms.” Museum-quality exhibits in the visitor center explore the natural history and the unique geologic events that resulted in the Raven Rock landscape, along with the history of Cape Fear River navigation and the river’s importance to local culture and commerce. Interactive exhibits invite visitors to consider “Nature Holding the Upper Hand” in efforts to control and profit

from such a large river. The state parks system has increased its commitment to sustainability by seeking certification for all large projects by the national Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program of the U.S. Green Building Council. Features at the Raven Rock State Park visitor center that will contribute to certification include a geothermal heat pump, solar hot water heating and low-flow water fixtures, the use of natural lighting along with lowenergy lighting fixtures and solar lighting in the parking area, recycled building materials and natural landscaping.

JOHN EDWARDS SEX TAPE CASE

Judge offers to help compel testimony By MIKE BAKER Associated Press Writer

HILLSBOROUGH — A North Carolina judge said Wednesday he was willing to order John Edwards to testify in a lawsuit about a sex tape involving the two-time presidential candidate. Robert Elliot, an attorney for former Edwards aide Andrew Young, said he has been unable to serve Edwards with a subpoena because he has been difficult to find. He asked the judge for help in getting Edwards’ deposition by the end of this month, saying he’d like the judge’s support if he can’t find the former North Carolina senator soon. “I’ll certainly sign an order to direct him to appear,” Judge Carl Fox said.

Residents rally against U.S. 64 plan with petitions

reflecting the park’s character, according to park officials. The project also includes a picnic shelter, improvements to the picnic grounds, an accessible nature trail, a paved entrance road to the park and paved parking areas with space for 139 vehicles. The project represents an investment of $4.3 million from the Parks and Recreation Trust Fund, the principal funding source for state park capital projects and land acquisition. “Nearly 200,000 visitors enjoy this growing state park each year, and this facility will add to their experience,” said Lewis Ledford, director of the division. “Beyond being

A lawyer for Edwards’ mistress, Rielle Hunter, said they would like time to make arguments before the judge takes that step. A spokeswoman for Edwards, Joyce Fitzpatrick, declined immediate comment. Earlier, Hunter’s attorneys argued she should have some of the profits from Young’s tell-all book, saying she is entitled to an undisclosed amount of money because Young promoted it by talking about the sex tape. Hunter is suing to reclaim the video she made and believes the tape was taken from a box of her personal belongings. Young contends that the tape was found amid trash that Hunter left behind in a home that he was renting, and his attorneys argued that the tape was a

small part of his book. “Nobody’s making money on the Edwards sex tape and nobody’s ever made money on the Edwards sex tape,” Elliot said. Edwards is also awaiting the conclusion of a federal probe into his campaign finances. At Wednesday’s hearing, Young’s attorney questioned whether

Hunter owned the tape or whether it belonged to the Edwards campaign. “What possible purpose would a campaign want — or desire — a sex tape of a candidate involved in a sex act?” the judge said. Elliot believes all video shot by Hunter belonged to the Edwards campaign or his political action committee.

Opinion

4A / Thursday, July 8, 2010 / The Sanford Herald Editorial Board: Bill Horner III, Publisher • Billy Liggett, Editor • R.V. Hight, Special Projects Editor

Public bodies: Let the sun shine in High Point Enterprise Open secret, clearly confused, found missing, military intelligence, jumbo shrimp, unbiased opinion, virtual reality, pretty ugly, rolling stop and transparency in government. Oxymorons all. Figures of speech in which incongruous or contradictory terms appear side by side; compressed paradoxes. Everybody in government -- particularly federal and state -- seems to talk about transparency but most of us see -- especially outside government -- so little of it, it’s difficult to recognize when it occurs. And one relatively unnoticed

step at a time, some -- perhaps many -- governmental bodies are easing away from compliance with the North Carolina Open Meetings Law and, except for a few of your representatives from the media (particularly newspaper reporters), nobody seems to care. Example: In accordance with the law, this announcement was sent to media on June 28. “The Guilford County Board of Education will hold a special meeting on Thursday July 1 at 6 p.m. to consider student assignment issues and such other business matters as may come before the board. The meeting will be held in the Board Room

of the Administrative Offices, 712 N. Eugene St., Greensboro, N.C.” So far, so good. The High Point Enterprise’s David Nivens showed up at 5:50 p.m. July 1, noticed the lobby lights were off, that no meeting agenda was posted in the lobby and a sign on the meeting room door said the meeting room was closed for a closed session. Realizing that it would be fruitless to remain alone in the lobby, no other media representatives showed up. Recognize that, for nine reasons, public bodies may hold closed sessions but only upon a motion duly made and adopted at an open meeting. Such mo-

tion shall cite one or more of the nine permissible purposes. Because the July 1 meeting was not a session continued from a previously recessed meeting, the lastspublic meeting was adjourned at the close of business, it appeared to Nivens, and to his editors, that the closed meeting was illegal. No big deal, you say? Perhaps. But fudging the rules and skirting the law here and there is like being a little bit pregnant. We’ve started down the slippery slope to leaving the public (and its representatives in the meeting) in the dark. What eventually is born is government run amok.

Tossing out honest services

R

ALEIGH — Let’s suppose that police find some stranger snooping around your property, looking at your home’s windows and checking at the doors. Without an alternative explanation, the obvious conclusion would be that this stranger was about to break into your home. But would logical supposition be enough to charge the person with a crime that they have yet to commit? Under our legal standards, it wouldn’t. Sure, the guy might be charged with trespassing. If he had burglary tools, he could face more serious charges. Kevin Geddings and his lawyers might not like that analogy to describe what happened to the former state lottery commissioner in 2006. But the federal honest services law that prosecutors used to convict Geddings has similarities to pursing burglary charges against someone for snooping around a home. Geddings, a political consultant and one-time chief of staff to former South Carolina Gov. Jim Hodges, was released from prison last week after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down significant portions of the federal honest services fraud law. That law says that the public enjoys a right to expect “honest services” from publicly elected and appointed government officials, meaning they shouldn’t be double-dealing or having known, undisclosed conflicts of interest. The nation’s high court ruled that only if someone acts on that conflict, only if they take a bribe or a kickback, are they guilty of a crime. In other words, the person must actually break in or try to break in the home. Geddings never acted on his conflict. He barely had the chance. He resigned from the fledgling state lottery commission in 2005 following revelations that he had been on the payroll of Scientific Games, one of the two big lottery operators seeking a state contract to run the game here. The commission was the entity responsible for awarding the contract, but had yet to do so when Geddings resigned. Federal prosecutors gained the conviction against Geddings because he failed to disclose the lottery firm payments on a state economic disclosure form. Under state law at the time, failure to disclose the information wasn’t a crime. It was grounds for removal from office. The effect of the high court’s decision won’t stop with those who, like Geddings, were already sentenced using the honest services fraud law. The ruling could also shape the ongoing federal corruption probe of the administration of former Gov. Mike Easley. Last winter, Geddings former lawyer, Tommy Manning told me, “I don’t think that the Department of Justice is going to change its headlong use of the honest services fraud statute until they get stopped with a choke chain.” The choke chain has just been jerked.

Disadvantage, privilege, fate

W

ASHINGTON — It is a rare and frightening gift for someone to glimpse an alternate fate in another life. On the same day that Wes Moore was reading an article in The Baltimore Sun about his own receipt of a Rhodes scholarship, he also read an article about an unrelated Wes Moore arrested for murder. Both Wes Moores shared Baltimore roots and similar stories of poverty and father absence. One graduated from college and became a White House Fellow; the other will spend the rest of his life at the Jessup Correctional Facility. Wes Moore contacted his namesake in prison out of what he calls “pure curiosity.” The result is a book, “The Other Wes Moore: One Name, Two Fates,” that illuminates the roles of disadvantage, privilege and personal responsibility in the shaping of a life. Both Wes Moores emerge as bright, energetic boys facing betrayals they did not deserve and temptations they did not resist. The author Moore vividly describes a circa 1990 urban world flooded by crack, set to a hip-hop soundtrack, and ruled by a violent, lawless conception of male honor. The lure of crime is indistinguishable from the appeal of entrepreneurship; the profits of the drug trade are limited only by the hours a teen is willing to spend on the street. It is a world of public schools that reward disruption with attention, of unrealistic expectations of sports and music stardom, of public housing projects nicknamed “Murder Homes.” Both Wes Moores end up handcuffed in the back of police cars. Both receive second chances. Only one robs a jewelry store and kills an off-duty policeman who had five children. The author Moore admirably refuses to draw simplistic, self-serving comparisons. He admits a broad role for luck, fate and personality. But the two stories, for all their variations, have a clear theme: the importance of parental influence, and the desperate search for substitutes when that influence is absent. Both boys had caring, single mothers. But tenacity turns out to be as important as caring. The imprisoned Wes Moore’s mother lived in denial about her son’s drug dealing. The author’s mother had what he calls “Thomas hands” — “hands that hit so hard you had to be hit only once to know you never wanted to be hit again.” For years, she slept on a couch in the living room, standing guard over her children in a troubled neighborhood. She sent her son to a private school she couldn’t afford. When he began skipping class and failing, she threatened him with military school. “She had to be bluffing,” thought Moore. She wasn’t. In the most wrenching moment of the book, the troubled Wes Moore encounters his father, whom he has rarely seen, in a stupor on a relative’s couch. After waking

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

him, this father looks into the eyes of his son and asks, “Who are you?” The author’s father dies when Wes is 3, but remains an image of manhood, “calm, reassuring, hardworking and sober.” A father who dies remains a presence in a child’s life; a father who leaves is an absence never fully filled. Particularly when a father is absent, examples and mentors assume great importance. The imprisoned Wes Moore finds a model in his gangster older brother. Sent to a military school in Pennsylvania, the author runs away three times in the first four days. But he eventually encounters a 19-year-old African-American cadet, leading one of the proudest units at the school. “I had never seen anything like that before. I had never seen a man, a peer, demand that much respect from his people. ... This was real respect, the kind you can’t beat or scare out of people. That’s when I started to understand that I was in a different environment. Not simply because I was in the middle of Pennsylvania instead of the Bronx or Baltimore. It was a different psychological environment, where my normal expectations were inverted, where leadership was honored and class clowns were ostracized.” This is the transforming effect of military life on many young men — the discovery of a kind of male honor rooted in character. There remains a mystery at the heart of individual fate. Many are born into circumstances that would test the strongest character. Many are born with unearned advantages and privileges they do not even recognize. But there is one decisive form of privilege that many of us can control and confer to others — the tenacious, demanding love of a parent or mentor.

Today’s Prayer To have faith is to be sure of the things we hope for, to be certain of the things we cannot see. (Hebrews 11:1 TEV) PRAYER: Thank You, God, for putting the answers in front of us at times when the pain is too great for us to find them ourselves. Amen.

Letters to the Editor Debunking myths on natural gas drilling in Lee County To the Editor: I was not sure whether to laugh or cry when I read Mr. Paul Brown’s letter and advice of July 3 (“Be careful before signing over your land for natural gas search”) ... concerning the Michael Mooreish movie (I cannot call it a documentary) “Gasland” produced by, directed by, filmed by and starring Josh Fox (he of New York’s “Fringe Festival” fame). I am an oil and gas professional with a masters of science in geology from North Carolina State and 30 years experience in the exploring, drilling and producing of oil and gas across multiple basins in the U.S. and internationally I have successfully and safely utilized advanced directional drilling technology and hydraulic fracturing technology for reservoir stimulation and production. I was born and raised in Lee County and I love this land and its people. My search for oil and gas brought me back to my home, and I have founded a company, opened an office in Sanford and am actively securing leases to put a shale gas exploratory program together in the Sanford Triassic Basin. Yes, I am one of the irresponsible “bad-guys” featured in Mr. Fox’s movie and mentioned in Mr. Brown’s letter (I believe and hope that those who know me or have met me would tell you otherwise). I own nothing in God’s creation, but am simply asked to be a good steward of His creation. When I first heard of “Gasland”, I was shocked. Acknowledging certain bias and prejudice as a result of my profession, I nevertheless realized that I should investigate the claims made by Mr. Fox. After that investigation, I was more shocked; shocked that someone could pass off self-promoting fiction for journalism. First as to the “buying of the land;” we offer to partner with the mineral owners in the county through an oil and gas lease whereby the mineral owner provides the land and we provide the capital and expertise to find, drill, complete and produce any oil and gas which may be trapped thousands of feet below the surface. We conduct our business of oil and gas exploration, drilling and production in full compliance with the myriad of state and federal regulations in existence which governs all such operations. Should our exploration efforts prove the presence of commercially viable shale gas resources in the Sanford Basin, my geologic opinion is that a 40-acre tract may yield $800,000 in future royalty income over the years to the individual/family so fortunately situated. To those not so fortunately situated, the economic impact is also great through job creation, increased state and local tax revenues and increased spending at local businesses. No one should become too excited at this point; not from an economic, environmental or any other viewpoint. The Sanford Basin is prospective, not productive, and prospective only as the result of our industry’s recent successful use of primarily two pieces of technology in unconventional shale gas reservoirs: horizontal (directional) drilling and hydraulic fracturing. If you choose to watch Mr. Fox’s movie on HBO (I now remember why I canceled HBO several years back), I offer the following resource as an antidote for your potential poisoning and for the facts on shale gas exploration and production: energyindepth.org. Here you will find an excellent resource published by the DOE on Modern Shale Gas Development — a primer, resources on hydraulic fracturing and directional drilling along with the debunking of Mr. Fox’s movie “facts.” CHARLES C.

R. “Richard” Thorpe Jones, devoted Greensboro educator and school administrator, dies at 92 GREENSBORO — R. “Richard” Thorpe Jones passed away peacefully surrounded by his family at his home in Greensboro, on July 6, 2010. Born December 26, 1917, Thorpe spent his formative years in Boydton, Va., where he was hired at the age of five for his first job, as a newspaper delivery boy. During high school, he excelled as Boydton’s second baseman. He met the love of his life, Elva Kathryn Andrews of Farmville, Va., on a blind date in 1941. After that date, there are no entries in Elva’s scrapbook unrelated to Thorpe, and he made sure he never missed a weekend in Farmville so no other suitors had a chance. A World War II Navy veteran, he served aboard the USS Prevail out of Little Creek, Va., and Pearl Harbor, HI, and was honorably discharged in 1945. Thanks to the GI Bill, he attended N.C. State University and received his undergraduate degree in three years, followed by his Master’s of Education from UNC-Chapel Hill (though, loyal as ever, he was a lifelong Wolfpack fan). After settling in Greensboro in 1949, he began his education administration career as an Industrial Arts teacher at Greensboro High School (now Grimsley). “Mr. Jones” then served as the Business Manager, Purchasing Agent, and ultimately Assistant Superintendent for Business for the Greensboro

City Schools before retiring in 1983. Thorpe truly believed Victor Hugo’s words, that “he who opens a school door, closes a prison.” During his tenure, he was responsible for the construction of approximately 30 new schools, with almost all of the other schools under his purview undergoing some type of major renovation. He loved jazz records, good mystery books, penny poker, a friendly game of pool, and a well-played round of 18 holes. He was a skilled woodworker, making lamps, furniture, pens, and birdhouses: wrens and bluebirds all over the East Coast continue to benefit from his talent. The quintessential Southern gentleman, he will be remembered for his sincere interest in the life story of each and every person he met, his fierce loyalty to his family and friends, his wicked sense of humor, and his unending generosity. During his career, Thorpe served as President of the following organizations: North Carolina Audio/Visual Association, North Carolina Industrial Arts Association, North Carolina Association of School Business Officials, and the North Carolina Division of Superintendents. He was a Member Emeritus of the International Association of School Building Officials and the Council of Educational Facility Planners International. Thorpe was a member of the Greensboro Civitan Club since 1954. He served on the Administrative Board of West Market Street United Methodist Church

where he was a member, and he was also a Stephen Minister for Christ United Methodist Church. Thorpe was a life member in the Coots International Golf Club, and until just last month was a Senior Meals on Wheels coordinator. He received the Greensboro Chamber of Commerce’s prestigious Calvin H. Wiley Award for Excellence in Public Education. Thorpe is remembered with much love by his survivors: wife, Elva; daughter Kathryn and her husband Woods Doster; son Richard and his wife Carolyn; grandchildren Carrie and her husband Michael, Rebecca, Will, and Jenny; and great-grandchildren Lela, Laurel, and Olivia. After a private family service, remains will lie in the Columbarium at West Market Street United Methodist Church. A Celebration of Life Memorial service will be held at Friends Homes West, 6100 W. Friendly Ave. in Greensboro on Saturday, July 10, at 2 p.m. Donations may be made to: The Employee Appreciation Fund or the Residents Assistance Fund of Friends Homes West, 6100 W. Friendly Ave., Greensboro, N.C. 27410; Palliative Care Services, 2500 Summit Ave., Greensboro, N.C. 27405; West Market Street United Methodist Church, Minister’s Discretionary Fund, P.O.

Hargett said it’s critical that people stay hydrated, keep cool, take breaks if they must be outside for an extended period of time and remember that the heat can cause fatal problems. “When it’s hotter, the fluid intake needs to increase, and for patients who might be on medications, they tend to get mild or moderate dehydration,� Hargett said. “We’ve had a few people in who we’ve had to give IV fluids to for

that reason.� Hargett said it’s especially dangerous to leave anyone in a hot car in such scorching temperatures. According to the National Weather Service, as of July 1, 20 children in the United States have died this year from hyperthermia after being left in cars. So far there haven’t been any cases in North Carolina this year. “Every year we hear the tragic stories, and I think the unfortunate thing is that people tend to think they’ll be right back, but a car basically acts as insulation,� Hargett said. “The heat comes in but it doesn’t go out, so the temperature inside the car can be 15-20 degrees hotter.� Though it’s not a good idea for anyone to remain in a hot car,

Hargett said children and animals in particular don’t stand a chance against the heat. “(Animals) can die of heat stroke just like people,� said Angela Conway of Carolina Animal Rescue and Adoption. Conway advised pet owners to keep their animals inside during the hottest part of the day, make sure they have plenty of fresh water and only walk them in the mornings and evenings. “If you don’t want to be in the heat, your pet doesn’t want to be,� Conway said. Though temperatures in Sanford were a sweltering 100 degrees Wednesday afternoon, Brandon Vincent of the National Weather Service Raleigh office said the National Weather Service did not issue a heat advisory because the heat index was low. Advisories are usually issued when the heat index reaches 105 degrees, but in Sanford, the heat index was around 95 degrees. “Even though it’s exceptionally hot today, the heat index is actually below what the temperature is,� Vincent said Wednesday. “But it’s definitely hot out there. Typical heat safety rules apply. Luckily our humidity is low or we’d have a bigger issue.�

RALEIGH (AP) — Gov. Beverly Perdue called the top 160 officers of the state Highway Patrol to a meeting Wednesday and demanded an end to a string of embarrassing ethical lapses. The patrol has seen a number of troopers resign or be fired for problems ranging from

drunken driving arrests to sending inappropriate text messages. “We must restore power to the Highway Patrol and respect to the Highway Patrol,� Perdue said after spending about 20 minutes with the officers. The meeting for the beleaguered force’s

statewide brass featured two hours of hearings from Perdue’s subordinates, State Crime Control and Public Safety Secretary Reuben Young and the Highway Patrol’s commander, Col. Randy Glover. Perdue and Glover then took questions from reporters for a few minutes.

The plan passed unanimously Tuesday begins voluntary restrictions when user demand is greater than 25 percent of the available water supply for 14 consecutive days or daily use exceeds 80 percent of production capacity for three consecutive days. In this stage, city customers will be asked to reduce usage by 5 percent. The second level of restrictions are mandatory and would begin when user demand exceeds 50 percent of available supply for 14 consecutive days or daily use is greater than 90 percent

of capacity for three consecutive days. Customers are asked to reduce their usage by 10 percent in this stage and some non-essential uses like water for pools, fountains and gardens will be banned. An emergency shortage is declared when demand exceeds 75 percent of the supply for seven consecutive days or daily use is more than 100 production capacity for one day. During this stage, customers are required to reduce consumption by 20 percent and only essential water uses in homes, health care facilities and for firefighters is allowed. The plan includes penalties such as warnings and fines for customers who do not abide by water restrictions.

PUBLIC NOTICE

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the North Carolina Utilities Commission has scheduled a hearing in the annual demand-side management (DSM) and energy efďŹ ciency (EE) cost recovery proceeding for Carolina Power & Light Company, d/b/a Progress Energy Carolinas, Inc. (Progress). The public hearing has been scheduled to begin Wednesday, September 22, 2010, immediately following the 9:00 a.m. hearing in Docket No. E-2, Sub 974, in Commission Hearing Room 2115, Dobbs Building, 430 North Salisbury Street, Raleigh, North Carolina. The proceeding is being held pursuant to the provisions of G.S. 62-133.9 and Commission Rule R8-69 for the purpose of determining whether an increment or decrement rider is required in order to allow Progress to recover all reasonable and prudent costs incurred for adoption and implementation of new DSM and new EE measures and appropriate incentives. On June 4, 2010, Progress ďŹ led its application for approval of DSM/EE cost recovery, requesting a total annual revenue increase of approximately $31.2 million effective December 1, 2010, from the DSM/EE rider and DSM/ EE EMF rider currently in effect. This request would result in an increase of $0.00153 per kilowatt-hour for residential customers; an increase of $0.00075 per kilowatt-hour for small general service customers; an increase of $0.00075 per kilowatt-hour for medium general service customers; an increase of $0.00075 per kilowatt-hour for large general service customers; and no rate change for lighting customers. The net effect of this request would increase the monthly bill of a residential customer using 1,000 kWhs of electricity by $1.53. Further information may be obtained from the OfďŹ ce of the Chief Clerk, North Carolina Utilities Commission, Raleigh, North Carolina, where a copy of the Progress application is available for review by the public and on the Commission’s website at www.ncuc.net. On June 4, 2010, Progress also ďŹ led a separate application for authority to adjust its electric rates and charges pursuant to G.S. 62-133.2 and Commission Rule R8-55 in Docket No. E-2, Sub 976, and a separate application for approval of a Renewable Energy and Energy EfďŹ ciency Portfolio Standard (REPS) cost recovery rider pursuant to G.S. 62-133.8 and Commission Rule R8-67 in Docket No. E-2, Sub 974. Separate hearings have been scheduled on these applications and separate public notices have been required as to these applications, but Progress has been directed to coordinate the publication of all three notices on the same schedule. The Public Staff is authorized by statute to represent consumers in proceedings before the Commission. Correspondence concerning the DSM/EE cost recovery proceeding and the hearing scheduled thereon should be directed to the Public Staff. Written statements to the Public Staff should include any information which the writers wish to be considered by the Public Staff in its investigation of the matter.

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the North Carolina Utilities Commission has scheduled a hearing in the annual fuel and fuel-related charge adjustment proceeding for Carolina Power & Light Company, d/b/a Progress Energy Carolinas, Inc. (Progress). The public hearing has been scheduled to begin Tuesday, September 21, 2010, at 9:00 a.m., in Commission Hearing Room 2115, Dobbs Building, 430 North Salisbury Street, Raleigh, North Carolina. The proceeding is being held pursuant to the provisions of G.S. 62-133.2 and Commission Rule R8-55 for the purpose of determining whether increment or decrement riders are required in order to reect changes in the cost of fuel and fuel-related costs over or under the base fuel rate established for Progress in its last general rate case. Progress ďŹ led an application and testimony relative to the subject matter of the proceeding on June 4, 2010. The change in rates proposed in the application, related solely to fuel and fuel-related costs, would result in a reduction of $5.60 a month for a typical residential customer using 1,000 kWh per month. Further information may be obtained from the OfďŹ ce of the Chief Clerk, North Carolina Utilities Commission, Raleigh, North Carolina, where a copy of the Progress application is available for review by the public and on the Commission’s website at www.ncuc.net.

ACCLIMATING YOUR DOG TO A NEW BABY Up until now, your dog may have been head honcho in the house -- or at least he thought so. He may have been fed according to a speciďŹ c schedule, walked at precisely the same time each day and given plenty of affection. Enter a new baby, and the household is likely to be tipped upside down, at least for a few months. Preparing your dog for the inevitable changes can help ease the transition once your son or daughter arrives. A few months before the baby is born, start broaching the subject of a new member of the family; your dog will already recognize some clues like baby “stuffâ€? entering the house. Show your dog the new items and have him get used to the smell of baby gear. If you will be restricting the dog’s freedom around the house, such as erecting baby gates, etc., do so now so that the dog will not equate this restriction to the baby alone. While a schedule is good for a pet and reduces anxiety, gradually change the times you feed or walk your pet so that he can be accommodating if you cannot take care of these tasks at the usual time. A baby feeding or changing may interfere with the set time. Talk to your dog and mention the baby’s name (if you’ve decided on one) or simply refer to “the babyâ€?. Some experts recommend carrying around a doll that can simulate the infant so the dog gets used to sharing time with a small human. Try out baby monitors, musical toys, bouncy seats, etc. so that the dog will also recognize the sights and sounds associated with the baby. This way you can determine if something is frightening to your pet before the baby arrives. Animals are very intuitive, and your dog likely already knows something is in the works. Your demeanor, appearance and even your scent has changed during pregnancy. You may already get some signals as to how your dog will react to the baby. Is he on guard or distant now? Does he stay close to your side? Is he curious about what’s going on? Recognizing clues can help you tackle potential problems before the baby is in the house. When you are coming home with the infant, make sure your dog is leashed and wearing a collar so you can control any sudden moves. Have someone else hold the baby so that “momâ€? can greet the dog and show him affection. Then she can introduce the baby to the dog and gauge a reaction. Most dogs will be content to ignore a baby for the most part. Particularly nurturing ones may be very curious about the baby. As the weeks pass, you will get a better sense of how your dog feels about the new baby. Remember, no matter how well behaved your dog may be, never leave him alone with the infant. Chances are over time the entire family will get back into a groove that works for humans and dogs alike. Then your next challenge will be a toddler who just loves tugging on doggy’s tail.

GENERAL ASSEMBLY

STATE BRIEFS to empty their on-board sewage. The provision would give the Coastal Resources Commission authority to allow construction of what’s called a terminal groin. The House hasn’t acted on a bill allowing the jetties installed in inlets since it passed the Senate last year. A terminal groin traps sand, keeping the shoreline intact and holding it out of the inlet. Environmentalists argue they steal the sand from coastline areas where it would collect and encourage risky waterfront construction.

Senate passes $240M in tax breaks

RALEIGH (AP) — North Carolina legislators have approved legislation that includes a long list of extended tax breaks and businessfriendly changes estimated to cost about $240 million in the next five years. The Senate approved the bill on a 30-16 vote Wednesday. The bill now heads to the House. The bill was changed to preserve a $1 million cap on the salaries of highly paid actors and directors that can be counted toward a total tax break raised from $7.5 million to $20 million. Producers could write off their in-state spending from their state taxes or collect a multi-million-dollar refund check from taxpayers if they manage to avoid owing taxes.

Greensboro man cashes $8 million lotto ticket sold RALEIGH (AP) — An 82year-old retired businessman from Greensboro is the winner of the first Mega Millions jackpot from North Carolina. Mike Manheim won the jackpot May 28 and claimed his prize Wednesday. He opted for a one-time lump sum of $7.8 million and about $1.5 million of that will go to taxes. Manheim plans to invest some of his winnings and travel with his wife with the rest. The couple already bought a new motor home. North Carolina joined the Mega Millions multistate lottery game in January. Manheim is the first North Carolina player to win a Mega Millions jackpot.

Lawmakers want to allow some coastal jetties

RALEIGH (AP) — The North Carolina Senate is trying again to change 25 years of coastal rules and allow oceanside communities to build jetties. The state Senate voted 3711 on Wednesday to change a bill extending the deadline for marinas to install equipment allowing boats

Legislature passes ban on Internet sweepstakes RALEIGH (AP) — The North Carolina Legislature voted Wednesday to attempt to make clear again that a 2006 ban on video poker also applies to computer-based sweepstakes games found at businesses inside strip malls and old storefronts statewide. In an 86-27 vote that gave final passage to the bill, the House agreed to the Senate’s plan to eliminate by Dec. 1 the games that gambling opponents say seduce players and take their money. The measure now goes to Gov. Beverly Perdue. Press secretary Chris Mackey said in a statement that “the issues surrounding unregulated electronic sweepstakes concern the governor,� but did not say whether Perdue would sign the bill into law. The vote followed more than two hours of impassioned debate that crossed party lines. Sweepstakes centers have proliferated since at least two trial judges blocked state agents and police from seizing the machines. The judges ruled that the video poker ban and an ensuing 2008 law designed to close a loophole don’t necessarily apply to the games. Those cases are pending. Sweepstakes opponents

said the Legislature meant to get rid of these kinds of machines, too. Wednesday’s bill, they said, should leave little doubt of its intention. “I’m tired of playing whack-a-mole with this industry,� said Rep. Ray Rapp, D-Madison, one of the House’s chief supporters of the ban. “We’re trying to come back to you with a clear directive saying, number one, it’s gambling ... and number two, it’s banned.� The industry has said getting rid of the games could do away with up to 10,000 jobs during the ongoing economic slump. Supporters of the games say they’re not gambling but a form of entertainment and marketing for Internet or phone time or office services. Machine opponents say the games, found at more than 900 places statewide, are designed to get around the 2006 ban. Neil Hoover of High Point, says the games enable his company’s 10 business service centers in the state to keep their doors open as they compete with places like The UPS Store. His outlets face an uncertain future. “Without our sweepstakes, we probably won’t be able to compete with those businesses. They’re so much bigger than us,�

Hoover said. “There are other states that actually welcome our industry.� Still, a large majority of lawmakers joined local law enforcement officers and religious leaders in arguing the sweepstakes centers are essentially casinos with dozens of computer screens where customers lose money in only a few clicks of the mouse. “This is an industry for people who do not have a choice, who are addicted on gambling,� said Rep. Grier Martin, D-Wake. Lawmakers on both sides of the political aisle questioned whether lawmakers should outlaw something that appeared to be a harmless form of entertainment to some but gambling to others. Rep. Becky Carney, D-Mecklenburg, tried unsuccessfully to get a motion heard that essentially would have delayed the bill until next year and avoided a tough vote. “I’m tired of being judged on whether I’m

moral or not depending on whether I support this bill,� said Rep. Carolyn Justice, R-Pender. Sixteen of the 19 black Democrats present voted against the ban. Many were among the most vocal opponents and complained the Democratic leadership didn’t give them the option to consider the letting the state regulate the machines and collect revenues that will be sorely needed next year. Sweepstakes machine operators argue lawmakers should have left the games in place while the General Assembly studies the issue and return next year to pass a law that would generate state revenues by licensing machines and owners. Amusement machine owners also argue it would be better to replace the video poker machine ban that took effect in July 2007 with legislation that would revive the industry and give the state 20 percent of the revenues.

Cleanup efforts only scratch surface By JAY REEVES Associated Press Writer

GULF SHORES, Ala. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a dirty secret buried under Gulf of Mexico beaches after cleanup workers scrape away the oil washing ashore. Walk to a seemingly pristine patch of sand, plop down in a chair and start digging with your bare feet, like everyone does at the beach. Chances are youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll walk away with gooey tar between your toes. So far, cleanup workers hired by BP have skimmed only the surface, using shovels or sifting machines to remove oil. The company is planning a deeper cleaning program that could include washing or incinerating sand once the leak is stopped off the coast of Louisiana. Some experts question whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s better to just leave it alone and let nature run its course, in part because oil that weathers on beaches isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

after days of relatively oilfree surf, but few tourists were around to see the mess. BP has high hopes to clean it all eventually. Mark DeVries, BPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deputy incident commander in Mobile, envisions a time when no one can tell what hit the beaches during the summer of oil. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our commitment â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to return the beaches to the state they were before,â&#x20AC;?

Countries may exchange spies RIVERBIRCH SHOPPING CENTER 3PRING,ANEs3ANFORD (919) 774-8912

946 S. Horner Blvd. (next to Pizza Inn) s3ANFORDs 

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; U.S. and Russian officials met secretively on two continents Wednesday in a likely prelude to one of the largest swaps of accused spies in decades, a Cold War remix showing the high-stakes race for covert intelligence between East and West endures in the new century. Five suspects charged with spying in the U.S. were hurriedly ordered to New York, joining five others already behind bars there, after a Russian arms-control researcher convicted of spying for the West came out of the cold of his forlorn penal colony by the Arctic Circle and was transferred to Moscow. Researcher Igor Sutyagin signed a confession even while continuing to assert his innocence, his brother said, describing that event as one in a series laying the groundwork for Russia to release him and others accused of espionage in exchange for members of an alleged spy ring broken in the U.S. Officials in neither country would confirm a swap was in the works.

US: NYC subway bomb plot linked to British cell WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A failed plot to set off bombs in the New York subway system last year was part of a larger al-Qaida terrorist conspiracy that planned a similar attack in England, U.S. prosecutors said Wednesday. In an indictment unsealed Wednesday, prosecutors added several alQaida figures to the case, including Adnan Shukrijumah, an FBI most-wanted terrorist. Shukrijumah, one of the al-Qaida leaders in charge of plotting attacks worldwide, was directly involved in recruiting and plotting the New York attack, prosecutors said. Attorney General Eric Holder has called that plot one of the most dangerous since 9/11. Two of the men indicted Wednesday â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Abid Naseer and Tariq Ur Rehman â&#x20AC;&#x201D; were linked to a previously undisclosed companion plot in England.

Obama appoints Medicare, Medicaid director WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; President Barack Obama bypassed the Senate Wednesday and appointed Dr. Donald Berwick, a Harvard professor and patient care specialist, to run Medicare and Medicaid. The decision to use a so-called recess appointment to install Berwick as administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services drew immediate fire from the GOP. Republicans have raised concerns about Berwickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s views on rationing of care and other matters and said it was wrong for Obama to go around the normal Senate confirmation process. That view was echoed by a key Democratic committee chairman, although the recess appointment is a tool used by presidents of both parties. Berwick has wide support in the medical community but some Democrats feared the GOP would use his confirmation hearings as an opportunity to reopen last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s divisive health care debate. Obama defended the decision to appoint Berwick and two other officials, one to a pension board and the other to a White House science post. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell accused Obama of trying to â&#x20AC;&#x153;arrogantly circumvent the American peopleâ&#x20AC;? with Congress out of town for its annual July Fourth break.

Barge hits tourist boat on river in Philadelphia PHILADELPHIA (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A disabled sightseeing boat adrift in the Delaware River with at least 37 people aboard was struck

by a barge and capsized Wednesday, spilling passengers into the water and leaving two people unaccounted for after a frantic rescue effort. The amphibious â&#x20AC;&#x153;duck boatâ&#x20AC;? had gone into the water just after 2:30 p.m. and suffered a mechanical problem and a small fire, officials said. It was struck about 10 minutes later, then sank. Searchers were looking for a 16-year-old girl and a 20-year-old man believed to have been aboard the vessel, which has wheels and can travel seamlessly on land and water, police Lt. Frank Vanore said. Several people went to hospitals, but there were no immediate reports of serious injuries.

Los Angeles police make arrest in serial killings LOS ANGELES (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Police charged a man Wednesday in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Grim Sleeperâ&#x20AC;? serial killings after decades of frustrated investigations into at least 11 slayings dating back 25 years, authorities said. Lonnie Franklin Jr., 57, was charged with 10 counts of murder, one count of attempted murder and special circumstance allegations of multiple murders that could make him eligible for the death penalty if convicted, District Attorney Steve Cooley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Today is a good day,â&#x20AC;? Donnell Alexander, the brother of victim Monique Alexander, said as he watched police activity outside the South Los Angeles house where the arrest was made earlier in the day. Detectives have spent years probing slayings between 1985 and 2007 in which the killer targeted young black women and one man. The attacker was dubbed the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Grim Sleeperâ&#x20AC;? because he apparently took a 14-year hiatus from his crimes.

Dow gains 275 to top 10,000 NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Dow Jones industrials climbed back above 10,000 Wednesday after investors had second thoughts about the heavy selling in the stock market during the last two weeks. Stocks soared and the Dow rose 275 points after a modest gain Tuesday. It was the marketâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first back-to-back advance since mid-June and the first close above psychological benchmark of 10,000 since June 28. But analysts warn that the buying doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean that investors are more optimistic. They said there wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a single catalyst behind the move and that it looked like a case of investors scooping up stocks that had become cheaper after heavy losses. The Dow had fallen 7.3 percent over two weeks.

LINDSAY LOHAN HEADED TO JAIL

E-BRIEFS

Manicure message gets attention

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Never has so much attention been paid to a manicure. Less than 24 hours after Lindsay Lohan was sentenced to 90 days in jail and 90 days in rehab for violating probation on two DUIs, the talk isn’t about her troubles, but about her fingernails. The 24-year-old actress sported a colorful manicure in court Tuesday that included obscene messages on each of her middle fingers. Close-up photos taken by a courtroom photographer revealed the tiny letters, which made worldwide news Wednesday on entertainment websites. Were the messages intended for the judge, who levied the harsh sentence Tuesday? Directives to the ever-present paparazzi who follow Lohan’s every move? Perhaps a silent snub to her estranged father, who attended Tuesday’s proceedings? Lohan let her middlefinger messages speak for themselves until Wednesday afternoon, when she took to her Twitter account to clarify the purpose of the defiant digits. “It had nothing to do w/ court,” Lohan wrote. “It’s an airbrush design from a stencil.” Written expression on her hands is nothing new, though. Lohan also has a

Lohan’s criminal defense attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, who sat

beside the actress during Tuesday’s hearing, was in court Wednesday and not immediately available to comment on the naughty nails. Ed McPherson, Lohan’s civil attorney who attended Tuesday’s hearing and sat near her in court during breaks, said he did not notice the message painted on her fingernails and does not think she meant to disrespect the court. “Absolutely not,” he said. He said Lohan’s tearful statement in court Tuesday was sincere. “I think she thinks that she’s come a long way,” he said. “Obviously she’s very upset about this.” The actress had some good news Wednesday:

A probation report said her six drug screenings since May were clean of illicit drugs and alcohol. The reports showed the screenings occurred after the actress missed a court hearing and a judge imposed new restrictions, including wearing an ankle alcohol monitor. The report was released a day after the judge sentenced Lohan to 90 days in jail and a stint in rehab for missing court-mandated alcohol education classes. The report showed Lohan was taking a variety of medications for which she had valid prescriptions, and their use did not constitute a probation violation. In addition, the “Mean Girls” star got a reprieve Wednesday in another pending court case when a judge delayed a civil trial stemming from one of Lohan’s 2007 arrests. Her attorneys and four people suing her agreed to delay a trial scheduled for later this month, citing her upcoming jail sentence, which is set to begin July 20. No new date for the civil trial was set. Lohan is being sued by a woman who was in a vehicle chased by the actress and three other men who claim Lohan involved them by taking a sport utility vehicle without permission.

Jury says Disney owes ‘Millionaire’ makers $269.2M LOS ANGELES (AP) — A federal jury on Wednesday awarded $269.2 million in damages to the creators of “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” because they didn’t get their fair share of profits from the popular Walt Disney Co. television game show. The jury of five women and four men returned a unanimous verdict agreeing with a British TV production company, the London-based Celador International, which accused Walt Disney of using creative accounting to hide profits. The trial was held before Judge Virginia Phillips in U.S. District Court in Riverside, about 60 miles east of Los Angeles. “We believe this verdict is fundamentally wrong and will aggressively seek to have it reversed,” Disney said in a statement. Disney attorneys did not return calls for additional comment. Lead Celador attorney Roman Silberfeld said the verdict form given to jurors was 18 pages long and included 40 or 50 questions, and “every one came out in Celador’s favor, 9-0 on every question.” The jury awarded $260 million in license fees and $9.2 million for merchandising claims, which were made based on $70 million in sales of a home edition of the game show. Celador had asked for a minimum of $202 million and a maximum of $395 million, Silberfeld said. “At a time when (Disneyowned) ABC was ranked last among the networks and desperately needed a hit, it

entered into an agreement with Celador to put ’Who Wants to Be a Millionaire’ on the air and share the profits of success — if there was success — with Celador 50-50. Every witness testified that was the deal,” Silberfeld said. During four weeks of testimony, Disney Chief Executive Robert Iger took the stand and e-mails from former Disney boss Michael Eisner about his enthusiasm for the show were admitted into evidence. The show, which was first hosted by Regis Philbin, became very successful for ABC in 1999 and 2000, ranking in the top 10 shows across the country at least four times that season, Silberfeld said.

Ringo celebrates birthday with ‘Peace’ salute

NEW YORK (AP) — With a little help from his friends, Ringo Starr celebrated his 70th birthday in New York with a global “Peace and Love” moment. Starr led the salute Wednesday in Times Square to throngs of spectators looking to catch a glimpse of the legendary Beatle. He told the crowd that Starr being in New York was a “magical moment in 1964, and it’s still a magical moment.” Earlier, Starr was honored at the Hard Rock Cafe with a cake and a chorus of “Happy Birthday.” He waited patiently for staff to bring a cake knife so he could cut his own cake, as is tradition in Liverpool.

Don Johnson wins verdict in ‘Nash Bridges’ case LOS ANGELES (AP) — A Los Angeles jury has awarded Don Johnson $23.2 million in profits from the TV series “Nash Bridges.” The actor sued three entertainment companies in 2009, claiming he was owed millions in profits from the 1990s crime show. Bart H. Williams is an attorney for one of the companies Johnson sued, Rysher Entertainment. Williams says the verdict is disappointing and will be appealed. Rysher Entertainment contended during the trial that the show had lost money overall and that was why Johnson hadn’t been paid. “Nash Bridges” aired for six seasons on CBS. Jurors also determined that Johnson owned half of the copyright of the series. In a statement, Johnson said he was “pleased” with the verdict and had waited 10 years for his stake in the show to be confirmed.

NEW YORK (AP) — It’s blistering. Scorching. Steamy. Brutal. Baking. Torrid. Ovenlike. It’s runout-of-adjectives hot. “A volcano — that’s what it feels like to me,” said Wayne Reid, mopping his brow and swigging bottled water after walking three blocks to a New York subway station Wednesday morning. He was dressed for the heat — already a sticky 90 degrees and headed into triple digits — in shorts and a tank top, but it didn’t matter. “You could run butt-naked out there and still be hot,” he said. Heat waves are more oppressive in big cities, because concrete, asphalt and steel absorb more solar energy during the day and are slow to release it after the sun goes down, offering people little relief at night. In the nation’s biggest city of them all, Wall

WEATHER TRIVIA

Streeters are sweltering in business suits on subway platforms, senior citizens are schlepping to the grocery store on streets that seem like frying pans, and New Yorkers overall are handling it by doing what they do best: coping, with a little complaining thrown in. Not that New Yorkers, on the fourth day of a record-breaking heat wave stifling much of the Eastern Seaboard, were suffering alone. With triple-digit highs recorded from New York to Charlotte, N.C., roads buckled, nursing homes with air-conditioning problems were forced to evacuate, and utilities called for conservation as the electrical grid neared its capacity. New York, where many buildings predate the age of climate control and many people don’t have cars, is not for the faint

of hot. The mercury hit 100 by 3 p.m. Wednesday after topping out at 103 on Tuesday. “When I get up, I feel like I could shower all the time,” Jeffrey Boone said Wednesday as he walked to a gym from his un-airconditioned Manhattan apartment. He has a window fan, but it is not up to the task of 80-degree nights or triple-digit days. “What can we do? We survive,” said Boone, a security guard. We also deploy umbrellas as parasols, run in sprinklers set up in parks, walk out of our way to stay on the shady side of the streets, hover by office-building doors where blasts of cooled air occasionally escape, and even appreciate the wind that signals the approach of a subway train. And wear our sweat with sangfroid. Megan Dack coolly checked her cell phone as

she waited on a roasting, elevated subway platform in Brooklyn while wearing a black dress and black opaque tights. Her retail job bars bare legs, she said. “It’s not so bad for, like, 10 minutes,” said Dack, who recently moved to the city from Cocoa Beach, Fla. “I’m used to the heat.” For those who aren’t, city officials have designated libraries, senior citizen centers and other places as public cooling centers. Plenty of people across the East were looking for oases of their own. Sue Robels’ plan? “My apartment isn’t air-conditioned, so it’s going to be museums, movies, Starbucks — anywhere else but at home today,” Robels said as she headed to Philadelphia’s Franklin Institute, a science museum.

1 worker killed in Ohio sauerkraut plant collapse

Church: Cuba offers to free 52 political prisoners

FREMONT, Ohio (AP) — A concrete roof partially collapsed Wednesday at a sauerkraut factory in northern Ohio, killing one worker and injuring three, authorities said. The roof collapsed as workers for B&W Welding were replacing support columns inside the small building at the Fremont Co., Police Chief Tim Wiersma said. Crews were still trying to remove the body of the man who died. His name wasn’t immediately released. Todd Michael, 44, was trapped in the rubble with his legs pinned for about four hours before he was rescued. Wiersma said he didn’t know the extent of Michael’s injuries but that it appears he will survive. While he was trapped, Michael told rescuers how to move the concrete and deal with the ruble, Wiersma said. A third B&W worker also was taken to a hospital, and one Fremont Co. worker was taken to a hospital for treatment and was released, authorities said.

HAVANA (AP) — The Roman Catholic Church said Wednesday that Cuba has agreed to free 52 political prisoners and allow them to leave the country in what would be the island’s largest mass liberation of dissidents since Pope John Paul II visited in 1998. Five would be released in a matter of hours and planned to head into exile in Spain, while the remaining 47 would be liberated in “a process that will take three or four months starting now,” according to the statement by the office of Havana’s Roman Catholic Archbishop, Cardinal Jaime Ortega. The deal was announced following a meeting between President Raul Castro and Ortega. Also participating was visiting Spanish Foreign Minister Miguel Angel Moratinos and his Cuban counterpart, Bruno Rodriguez. “We feel enormous satisfaction,” Moratinos said in a statement released by the Spanish Embassy. “This opens a new era in Cuba with hope of putting aside differences once and for all on matters of prisoners.”

Toyota adding more time to new vehicle development

Teen fugitive eludes police in Bahamas

TOYOTA, Japan (AP) — Toyota Motor Corp. is extending the time it takes to develop new vehicles by about four weeks for more quality checks in the wake of its massive safety-related recalls, a top executive said Wednesday. Executive Vice President Takeshi Uchiyamada said the company has learned a lot from its recalls of more than 8.5 million vehicles worldwide, including the need to slow the pace at which it develops new cars. It currently takes Toyota about 24 months on average to bring a new vehicle to market in Japan, Uchiyamada said. The time varies somewhat in other markets, including the U.S. Uchiyamada, one of Toyota’s highest-ranking officials who is considered the father of the automaker’s popular Prius hybrid, made the remarks during a press event with U.S. media at the company’s headquarters in its namesake city in central Japan. Toyota has been reeling after its recalls, which bruised its vaunted reputation for quality and dented its market share in the U.S., its biggest market.

MARSH HARBOUR, Bahamas (AP) — A wily teenage thief who hopscotched his way across the U.S. and escaped in a stolen plane to the Bahamas lived up to his legend Wednesday, eluding a manhunt after allegedly committing a new series of break-ins on a normally quiet island. Bahamian police interviewed burglary victims while searching for Colton Harris-Moore on sun-speckled Great Abaco Island days after the fugitive who has been dubbed the “Barefoot Bandit” crash-landed the plane and made his way to shore. His arrival coincided with an annual regatta that may make it easy for him to blend in among the crowds of visiting tourists. A Royal Bahamian Police Force bulletin warned that the 19-year-old should be considered “armed and dangerous.” Back in the U.S., he has become a folk hero of sorts, with a fan club hawking T-shirts emblazoned with his image, songs about his exploits and tens of thousands of followers on Facebook. Bar and restaurant owner Alistair McDonald said he was one of the thief’s latest victims.

SOURCE: BOOZER AGREES TO DEAL WITH BULLS CHICAGO (AP) — A person familiar with the negotiations says Carlos Boozer is headed to the Chicago Bulls. The person tells The Associated Press that the two-time AllStar forward agreed to a deal on Wednesday and is leaving the Utah Jazz after six seasons. The person, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the contract doesn’t become official until Thursday, did not reveal the terms. Boozer becomes the latest chip to fall on a day when Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh confirmed they will play in Miami next season. The jewel of this star-studded free-agent class, LeBron James, is still out there. While everyone awaits his announcement on Thursday night, the Bulls at least know they’re not coming away empty-handed after landing Boozer.

SANFORD — With a 9-2 record in Central Carolina Scholastic Summer League play, the Lee County Yellow Jackets must keep on winning to make their second straight postseason. Sound familiar? The Yellow Jackets found themselves in a similar spot back in the spring when they had to win out in order to qualify for the 4-A State Playoffs.

They did and by doing so, they went on a run all the way to the East Regional final and came just two innings away from competing in the state championship. This summer, the Yellow Jackets are in a tie for second place in the CCSSL’s Central division with Garner and both programs trail Fuquay-Varina, which is 10-1. The top two teams from each conference earn postseason berths in summer ball. “We just need to keep winning,” said Lee County assistant

coach Neil Rosser. “Having done that in the spring should work in our favor because our guys know they can do it. They’ve done it before. Lee County’s march to the CCSSL playoffs will continue tonight as the Yellow Jackets host Knightdale at 7 p.m. in Sanford. On Monday night, the Yellow Jackets will travel to Garner in a game that could determine sole possession

HURRICANES BRINGING BACK JOE CORVO

By TIM REYNOLDS AP Sports Writer

RALEIGH (AP) — The Carolina Hurricanes are bringing back defenseman Joe Corvo. The Hurricanes have agreed to a two-year, $4.5 million deal with Corvo, who was part of the 2009 Eastern Conference team in Carolina before being traded last year to Washington. Corvo will earn $2 million next year and $2.5 million the following season. Corvo, 33, missed 28 games after being cut on the right leg by a skate against the Capitals on Nov. 30. Before the injury, he led the team and was eighth in the NHL in average ice time at more than 25 1/2 minutes per game. Carolina sent Corvo to Washington in March for two players and a draft pick in 2011. Carolina also agreed to twoway deals with left wing Nicholas Blanchard and defenseman Casey Borer on Wednesday.

WANT TO GO?

LeBron James goes to the basket on a fast break during the evening workout games with high school basketball players at his skills academy on Tuesday in Akron, Ohio. The free agent will announce where he will be playing basketball next season during an ESPN special at 9 p.m. Thursday.

LeBron’s day finally arrives, where will he sign? By TOM WITHERS AP Sports Writer AKRON, Ohio — More than two years of hype, drama, conjecture and expectation have dwindled to a few more hours. LeBron James’ big moment is here — not as an NBA champion but as a free agent. There will be no parade, no ring ceremony, no banner raising. Instead, on a prime time made-for-TV special his handlers contracted with ESPN, James will announce Thursday night where he’ll play next season and beyond. Fans from coast to coast will tune in to watch, with the ones in his home state of Ohio praying they won’t have their hearts broken again. The Decision, it’s been dubbed. In Cleveland, they can only hope it doesn’t join The Drive, The Fumble, The Shot and The Move in the lexicon of sports misery. James has kept everyone waiting. It’s time to come clean. “I’ll be watching,” said fellow free agent superstar This file photo shows LeBron James (left) greeting PhoeDwyane Wade, who agreed to re-sign with Miami on nix Suns’ Amare Stoudemire (1) before an NBA game, Wednesday and may be trying to recruit James. “We’ve in Cleveland.

A person familiar with the plans tells the AP the interview will take place at the Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich, Conn.

DAVIE, Fla. — Dwyane Wade’s future was muddled and uncertain, until Chris Bosh told him where he wanted to spend the next few years. “I’m feeling Miami,” Bosh said. Those three words were all Wade needed to make his decision. Will they be enough Wade to sway LeBron James to Miami? Stay tuned. Ending months of specBosh ulation, Wade and Bosh announced Wednesday that they’ll sign with Miami, two decisions that vault the Heat back into the NBA championship picture and puts them two-thirds of the way to hitting one of the biggest trifectas in NBA history. Wade, Bosh and James all have talked about playing together. On Thursday night, James will say why that will or will not happen. “It’s over,” Wade said in an interview with The Associated Press. “It’s not all over-over, but for me, it’s over.” James can’t say that yet. Wade told the Heat that for him to re-sign, the team had to add either James or Bosh. For good measure, they might get both. “It had to be one or the other,” Wade said in the AP interview. “Of course, there’s a lot of talented players in this league. But you want to look at players that complement my game, and Chris and

RCR biggest mover at midway point CHARLOTTE(AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Richard Childress Racing was shut out of the championship hunt last season, when all four of its drivers struggled through a winless year.

Harvick said. This time last year Harvick was 26th in the standings, Burton was 15th and Bowyer was 16th. Headed into the 19th race of the season this Saturday night at Chicago, Harvick holds a 212-point lead over Jeff Gordon in the standings, while Burton is eighth and Bowyer 14th â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but only 49 points out of the top 12. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty remarkable, to tell you the truth,â&#x20AC;? Harvick said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Richard is the one who pulled all the triggers to make everything happen.â&#x20AC;? So who else has made remarkable gains through the first half of this season?

The driver who gets the most attention for his improvement this year is Dale Earnhardt Jr., who cracked the top-12 this week and is up 10 spots from here he was running this time last season. Receiving much less fanfare, though, is Scott Speed. He was 35th in points at the midway point of last year, and currently sits 24th. But because of the disarray at Red Bull Racing â&#x20AC;&#x201D; star driver Brian Vickers is out the rest of the year receiving treatment for blood clots â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the team gets more attention for whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going right than it does for Speedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s improvement. On a broader scale, it appears that RCR and Joe Gibbs Racing have improved their overall organizations to the point that they can now compete with Hendrick Motorsports. Toss Kurt Busch of Penske Racing into the mix, and there are some very serious contenders to Jimmie Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s four-year hold on the Sprint Cup. JGR, with seven wins between Denny Hamlin

and Kyle Busch, has at times this season appeared to be the most dominant organization. But Hamlin and Kyle Busch are streaky, and neither has the consistent finishes that Harvick is knocking down. Kurt Busch has two wins, 11 top-10 finishes and is ranked fourth in the standings. But as the star driver of the only Dodge team, he may not have enough support from his Penske teammates or the manufacturer to mount a serious challenge on Johnson. And Johnson, by the way, finally silenced that 10-week talk of a slump by winning back-to-back races before he was caught in a late 20-car accident at Daytona that gave him a 31st-place finish. Nobody is counting him out in whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a year of crossing off goals on his checklist â&#x20AC;&#x201D; he won at Bristol for the first time, and his win last month at Sonoma gave him his first road-course victory. Next up is Chicago, considered crew chief Chad Knausâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;home track,â&#x20AC;? and one of only four active tracks where heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s yet to win.

Yankeesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Cano out of Home Run Derby

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Robinson Cano wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be swinging for the fences in the Home Run Derby after all. While Cano insists his troublesome lower back is just fine and doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t affect him at the plate, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman, manager Joe Girardi and hitting coach Kevin Long came to the decision to keep the All-Star second baseman out of the event Monday in Anaehim. Yet Cano says he hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t personally heard that from any of his bosses Wednesday afternoon before New Yorkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s series finale at Oakland. Girardi says he is being cautious knowing how much the defending World Series champions will depend on Canoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s production in the second half. Cano was out of the lineup Wednesday for the first time all season to give him and his back a break.

Knicks think they have a shot at LeBron James

NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A day before LeBron Jamesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; decision, the New York Knicks believe they still have a chance. A team spokesman says the team has not been told it is out of the race for James, who is set to announce where he will play next season during an ESPN special on Thursday night. The Knicks made their pitch to James last Thursday in Cleveland and believe they became even more attractive to him when All-Star forward Amare Stoudemire agreed to sign with New York on Monday. Stoudemire said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d try to recruit James to come along. He wrote a message to James on Twitter on Wednesday, telling the MVP

Clippers hire Del Negro as their new coach

LOS ANGELES (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Los Angeles Clippers have introduced Vinny Del Negro as their coach, two months after he was fired by the Chicago Bulls. He takes over a Clippers team that went 29-53 last season and missed the playoffs for the 15th time in 17 years. Del Negro on Wednesday replaced Kim Hughes, who finished the season as interim coach after Mike Dunleavy stepped aside in February to focus on his GM duties before leaving for good in March. Del Negro coached two seasons in Chicago, compiling an 82-82 overall record and leading the team to consecutive playoff appearances before being fired in May. Though he got Chicago back on track after a poor start last season, he feuded with team president John Paxson, and the two had a postgame altercation on March 30.

Jimmie Johnson becomes a father

CHARLOTTE (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson is a father, and it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t interfere with his racing schedule. Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife, Chandra, gave birth to a daughter Wednesday. A Johnson spokesperson said mother and baby are doing well, and no other details will be released. It is the reigning four-time championâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first child. Johnson was prepared to miss a race if his wife went into labor, and with the birth of his daughter expected this weekend, he had Aric Almirola on standby should he need to leave Saturday nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s race at Chicago.

Spainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Carles Puyol, left, and Xavi Hernandez celebrate their sideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1-0 win after the World Cup semifinal soccer match between Germany and Spain at the stadium in Durban, South Africa, Wednesday. Spain will play the Netherlands in Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s final.

Spain beats Germany in World Cup semifinal DURBAN, South Africa (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Spain outplayed Germany yet again. And now the Spanish have the biggest prize of all within their sights. Spain will play for the World Cup title for the very first time, thanks to Carles Puyolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal on a powerful header in the second half Wednesday night. The 1-0 victory was the exact same score as the European Championship final two years ago, which Spain won to end a 44-year major title drought. But while the European title is nice, nothing com-

pares to being the world champ. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is one of the greatest moments for Spain, for us to be in the final of the World Cup, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history,â&#x20AC;? said David Villa, who remains tied with the Netherlands Wesley Sneijder for tournament scoring leader at five goals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And we want to make more history in the final.â&#x20AC;? Somebody is sure to. Spain will play the Netherlands in Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s final at Soccer City in Johannesburg, ensuring a first-time champion. The Dutch, who beat Uruguay on Tuesday night, have lost in their only

two trips to the final. The two teams have never met in the World Cup. When the final whistle sounded, the Spanish players on the field thrust their arms in the air while the substitutes raced onto the field. Their smiles were so bright they could be seen all the way to the top of the stadium in Durban, their roars of elation almost loud enough to drown out the blare of those vuvuzelas. Two teammates grabbed Villa, who has scored all but two of Spainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goals here, and carried him on their shoulders.

LeBron are two of those guys. I had a decision to make. Chris had a decision to make. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a lock that he would come to Miami. So I had a lot to think about.â&#x20AC;? James averaged 29.7 points for Cleveland last season, Wade averaged 26.6 points for Miami and Bosh averaged career-bests of 24.0 points and 10.8 rebounds for Toronto. They were the three kingpins of this longhyped free-agent market, a trio of All-Stars who came into the league together seven years ago and structured their last contracts just to hit the open market together this summer, the last under the current terms of the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s collective bargaining agreement. Now, the ball is in King Jamesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; court. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I expect us to compete for a championship,â&#x20AC;? Bosh told ESPN. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think both Dwyane and I, we both wanted an opportunity where right away we would be competing. ... Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re ready to sacrifice a lot of things in order to do that. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not about the money. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not about anything else except for winning. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a winner. Dwyaneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a winner. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to bring winning to Miami.â&#x20AC;? That was Heat president Pat Rileyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan. Around the NBA, the immediate reaction was that Miami is poised to be in the mix for the 2011 title.

headaches Within a matter of several weeks, the treatment my son received at Ammons Chiropractic ended his severe headaches. All through childhood, my son experienced occasional headaches, usually occurring suddenly, and sometimes severe enough that sleep provided the only relief. At age 15, he began to have headaches more frequently, sometimes several times in a day, and three to four times a week. Conventional medical blood tests revealed no clues, an eye exam and an MRI showed nothing abnormal, but the headaches continued. My son could feel a difference seconds after the first treatment, and within two weeks experienced no more of the debilitating head pain. He also has peace of mind instead of fear of a headache striking at any time. After seeing the benefits to my son, I also received orthogonal treatment for neck pain and tightness, a sensation of â&#x20AC;&#x153;crimpingâ&#x20AC;? that I never seemed able to stretch out, and which had plagued me for probably 25 years. One treatment was all it took to relieve the neck tightness â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and after a year, my neck remains comfortable and correctly aligned. Ammons Chiropractic personnel are consummate professionals, careful, methodical, gentle and absolutely committed to seeking solutions. Judith Edmonds Although we cannot guarantee results or predict how fast a patient will respond, Atlas Orthogonal care is profoundly effective in treating these conditions. Why suffer when help may be just a phone call away? Call not for an examination to see if specific upper cervical care might benefit you.

James last week at the megastar’s business office in downtown Cleveland, said he did not speak with James but was keeping his fingers and toes crossed that James’ loyalty to his home state will sway his decision. “I’m always hopeful,” Scott said. Hope and home are what’s sustaining Cleveland’s die-hard fans. Although the Cavs could offer James $30 million more on a maximumlength contract than any other team, money might not be enough.

championships. Without any salary-cap space, the Cavs, who also could try to swing a last-minute trade to make their roster more appealing to James, don’t have enough money to acquire the Robin to his Batman. But in Cleveland, this goes deeper than dollars. James is one of their own. Although he led the Cavs through the most successful stretch in their 40-year history, the Akron native came up short in winning a championship and snapping the city’s pro sports title drought dating to 1964.

the confidence we need headed into our game at Garner on Monday. We need a win before we go and play them. So, this game is important to us.” The Yellow Jackets, who defeated Middle Creek 9-6 on Tuesday night, have not decided who will be on the mound tonight as they look to earn their 10th win of the summer. What Rosser does know, however, is that the Yellow Jackets have got to hit the ball in order to beat the Knights. “We’ve got to get out there and swing the bat,” said Rosser. “We’ve got to put the ball in play and get

Rosser says that a win against Knightdale would do wonders for the Yellow Jackets psyche headed into Monday’s showdown with Garner. “We need a win, it doesn’t matter if it’s nonconference or not,” said Rosser about Knightdale. “A win will keep the momentum going and will give us

It was another victory that Lee County has grinded out this summer, something the Jackets have been forced to do all season. “We just capitalized off of Middle Creek’s mistakes,” said Rosser. “We have to keep playing hard if we want to win against Knightdale. We’ve played hard all summer long and that’s made coach (Shawn) McNeill and I very proud.”

The Wonderful World of Horses

For centuries, horses have been an integral part of humansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lives and have been our companions throughout history. They have been used for work purposes, transportation, sports, and for show. Until the automobile became available to all people, horses were a major source of transportation. Today, the power of an automobile is still referred to as its â&#x20AC;&#x153;horsepower.â&#x20AC;? There are many different breeds of horses, but they are divided into three main categories: ponies, light horses, and heavy horses. A pony is a small horse with shorter legs and a stout body. Ponies are very strong for their size and are good horses for riding training. A light horse is a horse that is typically fast and nimble. Thoroughbreds, the elite racing horses, are light horses. A heavy horse, also known as a draft horse, is a larger horse, mostly used for work, such as the large Clydesdale. Perhaps the most famous horse is the white Lipizzaner. These horses are known for their graceful movements, and when trained well, they almost appear to be dancing. Many of them are white in color, although they can be dark as well. The largest horses in the world today are the Belgian draft horses. The smallest horse known today is the falabella from Argentina. All horses celebrate their birthdays on January 1 in the Northern Hemisphere and August 1 in the Southern Hemisphere. This is due to the need for standardizing horsesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ages for racing. So, if a horse is born on December 31, its birthday would always be January 1. Horses are popular among children. The rocking horse is a very old toy still enjoyed today. Ornate and colorful replicas of horses are made for carousels and for some children the ultimate pet would be a pony. Horses have also been at the center of many works of literature, such as The Black Stallion and Black Beauty. A horse represents the knight piece on a chessboard.

6B / Thursday, July 8, 2010 / The Sanford Herald DEAR ABBY

BRIDGE HAND

Good old days long gone from deteriorating relationship DEAR ABBY: I am an 18-year-old woman and have been with my fiance for 2 1/2 years. I love him and can’t picture my life without him. However, over the last six months he has become emotionally abusive. He’s never wrong, gets mad if I disagree with him about anything, and he yells at me over every little thing. He used to treat me great, and now this. I miss how it used to be, and I cry almost every day. In the past I always told myself I would never put up with something like this, but I have been — and it gets harder every day. I know it’s not physical, but emotional abuse counts for something, right? Or am I overreacting? Please give me some advice. I need to know there IS a light at the end of the tunnel. — SAD IN LAS VEGAS

HOROSCOPES Universal Press Syndicate

Happy Birthday: Expect your awareness, fortitude and ability to make things happen but also to bring about added responsibility and dependency. Thinking and acting fast will show others that you have learned from your mistakes and now know what’s required to get ahead and to change whatever isn’t working for you. Letting go will become easier and will lead to progress. Your numbers are 9, 13, 20, 27, 31, 35, 47 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Just when you think things are going to turn out one way, they go the other way. Although nothing is a sure thing, you will still manage to adapt to whatever challenges you face. You will have the strength, courage and discipline you need. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Join forces with people you get along with and who have the same goals in mind. Friends, neighbors and relatives will offer support and suggestions that can make your life easier. Responsible actions will bring positive change. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Not everyone will agree with the way you want to do things. Be honest about what you need and you will surpass any of the negativity. Uncertainty revolving around children or those dependent on you can be resolved with the help of relatives or neighbors. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Subconsciously, you already know the answer you are looking for. It’s your reluctance to make a move that is holding you back. Surprise everyone by taking action. Once you get started, you will find it isn’t as difficult as you imagined. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Money can be made if you aren’t afraid to try something new or invest in a creative idea. If someone owes you, it’s a good time to collect. Don’t waste money traveling unnecessarily.

WORD JUMBLE

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Offering help may seem like the best idea but don’t get taken for granted. Paying for someone else’s mistake will not fix the underlying problem. Moderation, listening and offering suggestions will keep you in the loop. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Take a deep breath and let everything come to a standstill if you have to in order to rethink your strategy. It’s time to take matters into your own hands and to do the work yourself instead of trying to get others to do it for you. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): This is not the time to underestimate what you are capable of or to let someone else take the lead when you can do a better job. Your observations will be your guide to fine-tuning any project you are pursuing. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Alter your living quarters or make a move that will give you greater freedom or more space. The changes you make now will encourage you to take on new projects and to interact with people who have more to offer you personally and professionally. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Don’t let anyone dictate what’s going to happen next. Take hold of your world and make the decisions needed. An investment being offered is probably not as sound as someone wants you to believe. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): It’s up to you to take care of your own well-being and to move in a direction of personal and professional gains. Don’t let a poor relationship lead to poor decisions. Discard whatever is holding you back. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Make alterations that will improve your position, your home and your lifestyle. Speak up about the way you feel and how you see things unfolding. Networking and socializing should be your goal.

DEAR SAD: You’re not overreacting. What you are experiencing now is a preview of how the rest of your life will be if you stay with him. When a partner becomes controlling and emotionally abusive, in most cases it’s only a matter of time until the physical abuse begins. If you’re smart, you will put an end to this NOW. The “light at the end of the tunnel” is the sunshine you’ll see once you exit this relationship and slam the door behind you. ooo DEAR ABBY: Would you please say something about the practice of choosing teams for group games by having team captains select individuals through the process of elimination? As a child, I was always the person chosen last, and it happened again at a recent community function. I

am grounded for two weeks. When they do it, they get a minor scolding. While I understand that we were raised with different standards, I resent it when my punishment is worse than theirs. How can I make this equal? — ANGRY IN THE WEST

found it just as humiliating and hurtful as an adult. We were asked to stand and then sit down as our names were called. I was the last person standing in a room of 60 people, and it felt like I had just been pronounced the least popular and desirable person in the room. — THE OUTCAST IN ALLEN PARK, MICH. DEAR “OUTCAST”: I’m glad you wrote. When choosing teams for group games, most savvy educators separate students into “odds” and “evens” — or divide them alphabetically — rather than using the old “last man standing” method. That this would happen in a room full of adults shows extreme insensitivity, and I don’t blame you for being upset. ooo DEAR ABBY: My mom recently married a man with four daughters whose upbringing was very different than mine. Most of the time the “culture clash” doesn’t bother me, except when we get into trouble. When I stay out after my curfew, I

DEAR ANGRY: Yours is a problem that occurs in many families when they become blended — and you are right; the situation is unfair. That’s why I hope you will show this item to your parents. Family counseling can help them arrive at a fair solution and head off resentments before they explode. ooo DEAR ABBY: I host many casual backyard parties and invite my family as well as my husband’s. My family always declines for one reason or another, even when they are the only ones invited — so I have quit asking them to most of my gatherings because I’m always rejected. When they get wind of a barbecue that we have had, they become offended that they weren’t invited. I explained that because they always decline, I assumed they wouldn’t be interested. Abby, must I continue to invite them so they can reject me? — OFFENDED AND HURT IN DES MOINES DEAR OFFENDED AND HURT: Not in my book. You’ll have less pain if you accept that you can’t please everyone. It appears that with your family you are damned if you do and damned if you don’t, and I see no reason why you should continue to invite anyone who continually refuses to come.

ODDS AND ENDS Woman, 75, runs into Atlanta liquor store — again ATLANTA (AP) — Authorities say a 75-year-old woman drove her car through the front of an Atlanta liquor store on Monday — and it’s not the first time. Constance Chapman tells police her brakes went out Monday afternoon while she was trying to park at Green’s package store along Ponce de Leon Avenue, a major thoroughfare in the city’s Midtown neighborhood. Her white Mazda Miata crashed through the front window, pinning worker Jenetha Gardiner between a broken window and a shelf. Gardiner was taken to Atlanta Medical Center to be treated for a head injury cause by a falling bottle of liquor. Chapman tells police this is the second time she has done this at Green’s. Authorities say the wreck shattered 1,500 bottles of alcohol.

Mass. school janitor finds 3foot python in locker NEWTON, Mass. (AP) — A custodian cleaning out lockers at a Massachusetts high school was so shocked when a 3-foot-long snake fell at his feet that he didn’t even think it was real. Ed Reardon tells The Daily News Tribune that at first he thought it was a change purse. Then he thought it was a

SUDOKU

MY ANSWER rubber snake. Then it coiled into attack mode. Reardon didn’t panic. He grabbed it behind the head as he had seen on nature TV shows. When he got off work at Newton North High School, he brought it to a local pet store, where workers identified it as a ball python. Reardon thinks a student left the snake in the locker at the end of school as a prank. He found a notebook in the same locker with a student’s name on it, and turned it over to the principal.

Del. fishing buddies reel in stolen, dumped cars NEW CASTLE, Del. (AP) — A couple of fishing buddies from Delaware have been catching more than just bass. They’ve been helping police reel in cars. Larry Newirth and Dan Cathell spotted a white BMW 750 sedan on June 17. Then on Friday, they found a late-model Honda Accord. Police say the cars were stolen and abandoned. No arrests have been made. Newirth, a 63-year-old retired carpenter, jokes that he and Cathell better stop finding cars or the police will think they’re the ones stealing them. Cathell, a 44-year-old millwright, says he hopes the thieves stop dumping the cars from the boat ramp so police don’t close the dock to the public.

Don’t put your faith in reincarnation Q: I don’t fear death like most people, because I firmly believe that when I die I’ll come back to life again, maybe even on another planet. I think you ought to give reincarnation some thought. -- Mrs. N.B.

A: I realize reincarnation -- the idea that we’ll live again after we die instead of entering eternity -- is attractive to some people. After all (as you indicate), it seems to take away the sting of death. But does it? If reincarnation were true, how would you know your next life would be any better than this life has been? It might be much worse -- and what hope or peace is there in that? Nor (if reincarnation were true) would there be any certainty that the process would ever end. The Bible rejects reincarnation; it tells us that this is the only life we’ll ever live, and after we die we will enter eternity -- either with God in heaven, or in that place the Bible calls hell. The Bible says, “Man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment” (Hebrews 9:27). But I want you to understand why the Bible rejects reincarnation. The reason is because it isn’t necessary! Only one thing separates us from God, and that is our sin. But Jesus Christ came to do away with our guilt and shame -- and now He offers eternal life to all who put their faith and trust in Him. The Bible says, “This is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son” (1 John 5:11).
