Hitchhiker says he buried man in a field

Williams tapped as board chairman

Sheriff says body of man in his 30s found near suspect’s home

Bonardi to serve as vice chairman

By BILLY BALL bball@sanfordherald.com

LILLINGTON — A Harnett County man is behind bars after he confessed to murdering a man and burying him in a nearby field, the Harnett County Sheriff’s Office said. The man, 42-year-old David Eugene Gates of Lillington, confessed Monday, several days after deputies say they received reports of a “suspicious” Gates hitchhiker who claimed his friend had been shot to death in the area of Gates’ home. Maj. Gary McNeill of the Sheriff’s Office said the body of a man who appeared to be in his 30s was found at approximately 10 p.m. Monday in a soybean field near Gates’ residence at 291 J.M. Wallace Lane. McNeill said investigators believe they know the name of the dead man, who had been

SANFORD — A local nonprofit nursing a broken-down air conditioning unit is pleading for help from Sanford government officials. Theresa Dew, executive director of the Christians United Outreach Center of Lee County, called on members of the Sanford City Council Tuesday to chip in $10,000 to help alleviate the situation at the group’s sizzling local thrift store. The group, which operates a local food pantry for the poor out of a Lee Avenue office, depends at least in part on proceeds from its Sanford thrift store to make ends meet. But a recent crash in the

LAWRENCE BIO

bliggett@sanfordherald.com

❏ Born: April 15, 1928, in Sanford ❏ Education: Graduate of Sanford High School in 1947 ❏ Family: Married wife Sarah Isabel Heins in 1947. Four sons — William Gerrard Lwarence, Edward Thaddeus Lawrence, Robert Pender Lawrence, Richard Heins Lawrence. ❏ Church: First Baptist Church (served as deacon and on several committees)

SANFORD — Bill Lawrence’s list of accomplishments in the business world are impressive. The list of charities and nonprofits he not only helped but played a big part in is even better. Lawrence — a Distinguished Citizen of the Boy Scouts of America, longtime vice president of Heins Telephone Company in Sanford and 2008 Herald Lifetime Achievement Award recipient — died peacefully at his home in Sanford Monday. He was 82. Lawrence’s philanthropy in Lee County began in 1956 when he became a scoutmaster for the local Boy Scouts troop. In 1967, he joined the board of directors for United Way of Lee County while it was still a relatively young organization (he would become president in 1975).

The following year, he joined the Sanford Elks Club, and in 1970, he joined Sanford Rotary Club. He went on to serve on the board of directors for the Sanford Area Chamber of Commerce, Sanford Rotary and Meredith College, among others. In 1995, he was a founding boardmember of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Lee County.

“He was very community oriented,” his brother Joe Lawrence said Tuesday. “He thought if you worked in an area and lived in an area, you should give back to the community.” The eighth of 11 sons and daughters, Lawrence was born in Sanford in 1928, five years after his family moved to the area. His father worked for the railroads and later, for a local fertilizer industry. But his family got by even during the toughest of times because of the contributions from his older brothers and sisters, even after they’d moved away from home. “We didn’t have a lot of money, but my brothers and sisters all worked and helped out when they could,” Lawrence told The Herald in 2008. “Their support helped carry our family during the 1930s, during the Great Depression.

SANFORD — The Lee County Board of Education unanimously elected Shawn Williams as its new chairman and John Bonardi as its new vice chairman at Tuesday’s Board of Education meeting.

Pet of the Week Carolina Animal Rescue and Adoption

Phoebe Phoebe is a 3-month-old female Jack Russell Terrier mix. Her short, white and brindle coat is easy to care for; a quick brush a couple of times a week will let her know how much she’s loved. Phoebe is adorable and funny and she knows it! She will use all of her charms to trick you into falling in love with her and then you will need to take her home. Jack Russells are very smart and for small dogs, have big personalities. Because Phoebe is just a youngin’, she will need your help to give her all the training she needs, but with a little patience (on both your parts), she will be the best entertainer/companion for which anyone could hope. Phoebe is current on vaccines and preventatives, micro-chipped, and will be spayed prior to adoption. See CARA’s Web site (www.cara-nc.org) for more info or to apply to adopt.

Almanac

Why do movie reviewers in New York hate director Christopher Nolan?

This day in history: On July 31, 1910, Dr. Hawley Harvey Crippen, whose wife, Cora, had disappeared from their London home, was arrested along with his mistress, Ethel Le Neve (posing as Crippen’s son), aboard the steamship SS Montrose upon its arrival in Quebec, Canada. (Crippen was later convicted by a British court of murdering his wife and executed; Le Neve was acquitted of any involvement.) In 1777, the Marquis de Lafayette, a 19year-old French nobleman, was made a major-general in the American Continental Army. In 1969, the American space probe Mariner 6 flew by Mars, sending back images of the Red Planet. In 1991, President George H.W. Bush and Soviet President Mikhail S.

AROUND OUR AREA CHATHAM COUNTY

Board continues support of Pittsboro Express

PITTSBORO — The Chatham County Board of Commissioners voted this week to provide funding in the current budget year to continue Chapel Hill Transit’s Pittsboro Express route between Chapel Hill and Pittsboro. The route is a partnership between Chatham County, the Town of Pittsboro and the Town of Chapel Hill. Commissioner Chairman Sally Kost said that transit riders attended the county’s budget hearings in June to convey the importance of the service and to urge commissioners to continue it. Stephen Spade, director of Chapel Hill Transit, reported that monthly ridership grew steadily from 861 in September 2009 to an average monthly ridership of 2,065 for the next eight months, a 140 percent increase. Average daily ridership also increased 169 percent during this period. A federal grant pays half of the operating costs. Spade said that $64,000 is the amount of local government support needed to fund the Pittsboro Express this budget year. The commissioners voted to approve county funding at $46,000, with the understanding that Pittsboro would provide the $18,000 already included in the town’s budget. The Pittsboro Express runs three times each morning and three times in late afternoon, with the main goal of helping county residents commute to the Chapel Hill area for work or school. However, some riders use the transit service to get to jobs in Pittsboro.

thrift store’s heating and air conditioning unit has left the organization with a sweaty and expensive problem. Dew said the cost of repairing the unit has been pegged at about $24,000, too much for the nonprofit to cough up. “We’re expecting tripledigit heat this week,� Dew said. “It’s getting uncomfortable in there.� City Council members took no action on Dew’s request Tuesday, but agreed to take a vote at a specially-called session immediately following a July 28 committee meeting. The committee meetings are typically held at 1 p.m. in the Council’s chambers at City Hall. Christians United Outreach Center is the first organization to publicly approach Sanford for help since council members approved a $41.4 million budget last month that was bundled with $46,000 in aid for struggling local nonprofits. Council members on Tuesday renewed earlier calls to draft a policy on dispensing city funds to nonprofits, and City Attorney Susan Patterson pledged to have such a

County continues bookmobile service for near future PITTSBORO — The Chatham County Board of Commissioners voted this week to reinstate the Public Library’s bookmobile service, effective today, while the service is studied further. “We have asked county staff to work with the community to develop alternatives for providing library services to meet citizens’ needs� said Commissioner Chairman Sally Kost. “In studying the issue, we have asked staff to explore various options for providing these library services, which could include continuing the bookmobile, modifying the service, or providing other alternatives to ensure that citizens in outlying areas in the county have access to reading materials.� Kost said when the approved a budget recommendation from the county manager’s office to discontinue the bookmobile in the current budget year, it did so with the understanding that certain steps would first be taken. Commissioner Vice Chairman George Lucier said that before halting the bookmobile’s service, the commissioners requested that an alternative plan be in place to meet the needs of bookmobile customers. — from staff reports

document ready for the July 28 meeting. “I strongly recommend that we have a policy put together before we do anything more,� said Councilman Sam Gaskins. Council members initially indicated they would discuss Dew’s request at an August meeting, but bumped the date up after Councilman Linwood Mann said the current summer temperatures represent a pressing problem for nonprofit workers. “I think if we’re going to do anything, we have to do it quickly,� Mann said. Dew said the organization fed more than 37,000 locals last year through its food pantry, although the load is becoming heavier for the nonprofit with the influx of larger families and impoverished Hispanic residents. The group is currently dispensing an average of 50,000 pounds of food per month to the community with about 300 volunteers, she said. “We are faced with a dilemma today to try to figure out funding-wise what we are going to do,� Dew said.

Board OKs rezoning along U.S. 1 By BILLY BALL bball@sanfordherald.com

SANFORD — Lee County commissioners gave the go-ahead this week on a large-scale rezoning that clears the way for a major, mixeduse development north of Sanford. Commissioners took only moments Monday to unanimously back the request to rezone 491 acres near Industrial Park from residential-agricultural to commercial purposes. The 19 tracts of land will be divided among 60 acres for general commercial uses and 431 acres for light industrial uses. Project heads like Raleigh real estate developer Steve Stroud say the development will com-

Aloha Safari Zoo rescued him, but as Bodie grows, he will need a more spacious habitat. “Bodie’s going to be a big animal, so we’ll have to keep him confined,� said Lesa Drye, one of the zoo’s curators. Bodie’s new habitat would consist of a den, a play yard and a water feature, and he would be surrounded by four perimeters. The zoo began construction on the habitat, but the plan hit a snag when the people who were helping the zoo build the habitat moved away. “They did a great job helping us get started, but we need to build a safe home for him,� Aloha Safari Zoo owner Lee Crutchfield said. “Safety is paramount.

Deputies began investigating the case after receiving reports Friday of a man asking for rides on Lillington’s Black Lane and claiming his friend had been shot to death on nearby Tim Currin Road. Investigators said they spoke with local residents and could not find any additional information on the reported shooting.

County commissioners said the project appears to be a blessing for a part of the county near the U.S. 1 corridor that officials expect to grow in the coming years. “It sounded like a worthy project that was going to bring business and development into that area,� said Commissioner Amy Dalrymple. “And that means jobs.� Stroud and a team of local landowners have tapped Durham landscape architect Tony Tate for the project. Tate was involved in work on a handful of projects inside and

outside the state, as well as Chapel Hill’s Southern Village, a development that combines residential and commercial business with a “Main Street� feel. The request to rezone the land was already met with unanimous support from the Lee County Planning Board, and commissioners concurred Monday. “I was very supportive of it,� said Commissioner Linda Shook. “I think it’s got great potential for increasing our tax base here in Lee County, and it’s a great location.� Dalrymple said she hopes to see locals involved in the planning process for the development so it will assimilate into the community. “I got a good feeling that this development

First, on Monday, the North Carolina Education Lottery reported a 10 percent increase in sales over the last year than the previous year. The lottery said Monday sales grew to more than $1.4 billion during the 12 months ending June 30. Then on Tuesday, Gov. Perdue signed a bill making computerbased sweepstakes games at hundreds of North Carolina Internet cafes, business service centers illegal starting Dec. 1, extending the 2006 ban on video poker machines to the games. Think about that for a mo-

ment. In the same week, the state essentially “tooted its own horn” for running its best numbers racket in its history, while getting up on its high horse and banning competing numbers racket from the private sector. Now, we’re not saying the lottery or the sweepstakes games are wrong. It is a person’s prerogative to play or not play either one, but the state shouldn’t be so hypocritical. Lottery officials credited new weekly jackpot drawings — including the addition of the Mega Millions game — and more retail locations in general for the boost. That may be true, but even more likely is the idea that the

lottery is essentially a poor tax — that is, it disproportionately affects lower income citizens who see lottery dreams as their way out of their situation, and wind up losing the rent money. If you are already wealthy, you’ll know much more efficient ways to invest your money to make more of it than a simple game of chance. And the chances of winning in the North Carolina lottery have been proven to be much smaller than other states. No wonder the state is making more money on the lottery now. Not only are there more lower income people, with the recent recession, but it is keeping too much of the proceeds and

playing on poor people’s hopes and dreams — the same reason legislators say they banned video poker and sweepstakes game. OK, so the lottery funds are used for education — the record sales helped send more than $419 million in net profits to education programs. That’s also the highest annual transfer since the first tickets were sold in 2006. But sweepstakes cafe owners hire people, too, and add to the tax base, which would mean more for education as well. They’re basically the same thing, lottery and sweepstakes. Legislators and Gov. Perdue shouldn’t pretend that they are not.

What did it used to be?

W

hat did it used to be? There are local businesses that are located in buildings that once housed other businesses. For example, what was once housed in the current Lee County Government Center? Long-time Central Carolina area residents will tell you that it once was the home of the Lee County Hospital. Okay, here are a few more for you to ponder. Remember: I’ll give the current business. I’ll include the answers for what used to be in that building at the end of this column. ❏ Big Lots ❏ Office Max ❏ Save A Lot ❏ Bay Breeze ❏ Wilkins Auto ❏ San Felipe ❏ Zheng Garden ❏ Panda Garden

Post office trash cans I’ve been noticing for some time the message found atop some of the trash containers at the Sanford Post Office. It reads: “Do Not Use As Urinal.” Well, it’s not hard to imagine why officials felt they must put that message on the trash containers. Shame on the offenders! Post office officials should not have to be subjected to such offensive behavior. I hope that the signs are working and that such activity has come to a halt. It’s just sad that such a message must be posted in such a public location.

Fine food places I remember when I was young and it was said, “I wish we had a McDonald’s.” Well, Sanford does have a McDonald’s ... and lots of other fine eating establishments. I’m proud to stay that I believe I’ve visited the bulk of them ... and there’s some fine food to be found here. On Saturday, I visited one Sanford resident for the first time — The Steele Pig on Steele Street. It was a most pleasurable gastronomical experience. I would highly recommended the Smoked & Slowly Braised Beef Shortribs. With that, I had the Parmesan Grits and HandCut Herb & Garlic Fries. My compliments to the chef and fine wait staff. It was a delight to visit. We are fortunate to have such fine restaurants in Central Carolina.

Purge this poison T

hat was quick. We now have proof the NAACP was right. When the nation’s leading civil rights organization passed a resolution condemning displays of racism by tea party activists, leaders of the movement reacted with umbrage so thick you could cut it with a knife — then demonstrated that the NAACP’s allegation was entirely justified. On Sunday, the National Tea Party Federation announced it had expelled one of the movement’s most prominent figures — a California blowhard named Mark Williams — because of the outrageously racist things he had said about the NAACP. Ejected along with Williams was his whole organization, Tea Party Express, which had been a particularly active, high-profile group. The last straw was a “satirical” letter that Williams, a right-wing talk radio host, posted on his website. It was supposed to be a missive from NAACP President Ben Jealous to Abraham Lincoln, and the Tea Party Federation deemed it “clearly offensive.” With good reason. Here is one passage: “We Colored People have taken a vote and decided that we don’t cotton to that whole emancipation thing. Freedom means having to work for real, think for ourselves, and take consequences along with the rewards. That is just far too much to ask of us Colored People and we demand that it stop!” Amazingly, it gets worse: “Perhaps the most racist point of all in the tea parties is their demand that government ‘stop raising our taxes.’ That is outrageous! How will we coloreds ever get a widescreen TV in every room if non-coloreds get to keep what they earn? Totally racist! The tea party expects coloreds to be productive members of society? Mr. Lincoln, you were the greatest racist ever. We had a great gig. Three squares, room and board, all our decisions made by the massa in the house. Please repeal the 13th and 14th Amendments and let us get back to where we belong.” That’s not satire, it’s hate speech. The national federation should be commended for moving quickly to cut all ties with this unreconstructed bigot. But Williams is not some obscure figure from the movement’s outer fringe. He’s a big player. Tea Party Express lists as its “national sponsor” a political action committee named Our Country Deserves Better, which spent about $350,000 on Sen. Scott Brown’s winning campaign in Massachusetts and is pouring hundreds of thousands of dollars into Nevada on behalf of candidate Sharron Angle. Tea Party Express boasts on its website of having staged rallies featuring such speakers as Sarah Palin, Ann Coulter and one Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher, better known as Joe the Plumber. Have the rest of the movement’s lead-

Eugene Robinson Columnist Eugene Robinson is a columnist with the Washington Post Writers Group

ers never noticed Williams’ rhetoric before now? His most recent obsession, before the NAACP flap, has been a crusade to halt construction of a mosque in lower Manhattan near Ground Zero. He has called the proposed structure a place where Muslims would honor the al-Qaeda hijackers and “worship the terrorists’ monkey-god.” He has called President Obama an “Indonesian Muslim turned welfare thug.” If Williams is now a pariah in tea party circles, that’s progress. But this episode should prompt the national leadership to look inward and acknowledge — not just to the rest of us, but also to themselves — that ugly, racially charged rhetoric has been part of the movement’s stock and trade all along. If the tea party groundswell is to mature into something important and lasting, it needs to purge itself of this poison. And if the Republican Party is going to try to harness the tea party’s passion on behalf of GOP candidates, responsible leaders need to make clear that racism will not be tolerated. Yet Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell declined to talk about the NAACP flap when asked about it Sunday, and Sen. John Cornyn volunteered that accusing the tea party of racism is “slanderous.” It’s not slander if it’s the truth, senator. No one can deny that some fraction of the tea party’s considerable energy is generated by racism. Excommunicating Mark Williams was a start to disowning and discarding this element — but just a start. And by the way, remember when Attorney General Eric Holder urged us to have a national conversation about race? Well, this is how we do it — awkwardly and episodically, almost always in reaction to a specific event. We don’t talk, we shout and grumble. It ain’t pretty, but it’s the American way.

Today’s Prayer Jesus said, “You are my friends if you do what I command you.” (John 15:14 RSV) PRAYER: Thank You, God, for the gift of friendship. Help me to give that gift to others. Amen.

Letters to the Editor Republicans think the sky is falling when they’re not in power To the Editor: When one reads David Limbaugh’s latest rant against President Obama, you would think that President Bush left an economy that was bursting at the seems — that he only had small budget deficits through his term in office. What could be further from the truth? Like most conservative spinmeisters, Limbaugh will never place the blame for anything that goes wrong on a Republican. When Mr. Bush took office, he inherited a national debt of $5.8 trillion at the end of that fiscal year — Sep. 30, 2001. On Sep. 30, 2009, President Bush left a national debt of $11.9 trillion. Mr. Bush may have had a year where the deficit was only in the $200 billion range, but he more than doubled the national debt during his presidency. Does that sound like fiscal conservatism? And yes, the unemployment rate was 4.6 percent in June of 2007, but it had grown to 7.7 in January of 2009 and was rising. President Obama did inherit a failing economy from President Bush. Has the economy gotten better? Somewhat. Not enough, but much more than Mr. Limbaugh and other conservative talking heads will give him credit. For 18 months, the Republican Party has said “no” to anything and everything that the president has tried to do, even if they had originally been for the program. They voted against the stimulus package, and some Republican governors even said they would not take the money. But there they were on TV handing out those giant checks. There are programs the Republicans do want to eliminate from the federal budget — Social Security, Medicare, the Department of Education, the EPA, the FDA and any regulation of business. Republicans talk a good game when it comes to fiscal responsibility, but only when they are out of power. The Republicans believe the “tea party” will bring them back into power if they continue to say “no” to everything. Well, I have some news for them. We took the country back from the Bush/Cheney regime in 2008 and we don’t want to give it back. I have one more question for Mr. Limbaugh and other Republicans. You always want to cut taxes for the wealthy, saying only those with money can create jobs. How does a personal income tax cut for Mr. Buffet create jobs other than another Wall Street honcho who will make another million playing the stock market? George Steinbrenner died recently. The Republicans eliminated all inheritance taxes. Mr. Steinbrenner’s children will now save $500,000 in taxes. What jobs will that create? Do you think he paid his ballplayers out of his personal checking account? NEIL ROTTER Sanford

Racial tensions roil school board By MIKE BAKER Associated Press Writer

RALEIGH — Protesters and police scuffled Tuesday at a school board meeting in North Carolina over claims that a new busing system would resegregate schools, roiling racial tensions reminiscent of the 1960s. Nearly 20 people were arrested, including the head of state NAACP chapter who was banned from the meeting after a trespassing arrest at a June school board gathering. “We know that our cause is right,� Barber said shortly before police put plastic handcuffs on his wrists before the meeting started. nside, more than a dozen demonstrators disrupted the meeting by gathering around a podium, chanting and singing against the board’s policies. After several minutes, Raleigh police intervened and asked them to leave. When they refused, the officers grabbed arms and tried to arrest the protesters.

Rev. William Barber, leader of the state NAACP, left, was arrested outside the Wake County Schools administration building in Raleigh Tuesday. One child was caught in the pushing and shoving, as was school board member Keith Sutton, who was nearly arrested before authorities realized who he was. “Hey, hey, ho, ho, resegregation has got to go,� some protesters chanted. The Wake County School Board has voted multiple times over the last several months to scrap the district’s diversity policy, which distributed students based on socioeconomics and for years had been a model for other districts looking

to balance diversity in schools. Several school board members elected last year have built a majority in favor of focusing on neighborhood schools. The board’s chairman, Ron Margiotta, said the panel would not be distracted in its effort to “provide choice and increased stability for families.� “This board does not intend to create high poverty or low-performing schools,� he said to scoffs from the crowd. At a morning rally that drew 1,000 people,

speakers quoted Martin Luther King Jr., remembered the days of segregated water fountains and likened the current situation to the landmark Brown v. Board of Education battle. Barber talked about America’s legacy of racial strife to galvanize the crowd. “Too many prayers were prayed,� Barber said. “Too many lives were sacrificed. Too much blood was shed. Too many tears were shed. We can’t turn back now.� Barber’s supporters believe the new policy will resegregate schools. They carried signs that read: “Segregate equals hate� and “History is not a mystery. Separate is always unequal.� George Ramsay, a white former student body president of Enloe High School, said it was necessary to keep the diversity policy in place to prepare students for an increasingly connected world. “It is shortsighted to ignore the way students like me have been enriched by diversity,� Ramsay said.

Pantano criticizes Obama over nuke waste

WILMINGTON (AP) — A Republican candidate for the U.S. House said Tuesday that President Barack Obama’s attempts to shut down Yucca Mountain Nuclear Waste Repository endanger southeastern North Carolina. If the Yucca Mountain project in Nevada is shut down, spent nuclear fuel will have to be stored above ground on the Brunswick Nuclear Plant property near Southport, Ilario Pantano said during a news conference in Wilmington. He said it would be susceptible to hurricanes and too close to the Army’s Sunny Point ammunition depot. “Do you think it is

safer for nuclear waste to be stored above ground in Brunswick County or buried deep in a mountain in the desert of Nevada?� Pantano said. Mike Hughes, a spokesman for Progress Energy, said the Brunswick plant’s method of storing spent fuel is time-tested and safe. He said the plant can store spent nuclear fuel rods on site for the life of the plant, but the company prefers one central longterm storage site like Yucca Mountain. The plant has started building a short-term storage facility that will be done this fall. Hughes said it will be able to withstand hurricanes and other extreme conditions.

Currently, the plant stores spent rods in deepwater pools that keep the radioactive rods cool. Obama opposes the plan to bury the nation’s most radioactive spent nuclear fuel 90 miles northwest of Las Vegas. A Nuclear Regulatory Commission legal panel told the federal Department of Energy in June it can’t withdraw its application for the Yucca Mountain repository. The Obama administration has appealed the ruling. Pantano is taking on Rep. Mike McIntyre of Lumberton in the 7th Congressional District. He blasted the seventerm Democrat for not joining 91 members of

Congress in a July 6 letter condemning the administration’s plans to shut down the Yucca Mountain project. He vowed, if elected, to restore funds to the project to make sure Yucca Mountain opens in 2017. “Nuclear waste stored in a resort area is not a minor concern,� Pantano said. McIntyre said in a statement that he supports the Yucca Mountain Project and not only voted for it, but blocked two amendments that cut or deleted funding for the project. He also said the management at the Brunswick Nuclear Facility has told him that the plant can safely store nuclear fuel.

Governor signs bill banning sweepstakes RALEIGH (AP) — The computer-based sweepstakes games at hundreds of North Carolina Internet cafes, business service centers and other places are officially on their way out. Gov. Beverly Perdue signed a bill Tuesday afternoon that ban the sweepstakes games starting Dec. 1. The Legislature agreed two weeks ago to extend the 2006 ban on video poker machines to games operators say are designed to attract consumers to purchase phone or Internet time. Ban supporters argued the games were an end-around the previous ban while players gambled away their money. Sweepstakes business owners say the ban will eliminate thousands of jobs.

4-year-old dies in torture case, man charged SMITHFIELD (AP) — A North Carolina man faces a murder charge after the 4-year-old girl left in his care died from injuries suffered during what authorities say were days of torture. Multiple media organizations reported Tuesday that 21-year-old Jonathan Douglas Richardson was charged with first-degree murder in addition to felony child abuse. Johnston County Sheriff Steve Bizzell says 4-year-old Teghan Alyssa Skiba suffered head trauma, cuts, bites and had signs of sexual assault. Richardson told hospital workers the girl fell off a bed. An attorney appointed to represent Richardson did not immediately return a call to The Associated Press seeking comment.

Yacht builder to add 350 jobs in 5 years RALEIGH (AP) — A luxury yacht builder said Tuesday that it will consolidate two underused manufacturing plants, closing one in California and adding about 350 jobs in North Carolina within five years. Lake Forest, Ill.-based Brunswick Corp. said Tuesday it will close its Cabo Yachts plant in Adelanto, Calif., by the end of 2010. Produc-

tion will move to its Hatteras Yachts factory in New Bern, where 280 workers remain after several rounds of layoffs slashed the workforce from 1,400. The company could receive up to $3.1 million in refunds on its North Carolina taxes if it hires the workers and keeps them for 12 years.

Former 1st lady Jessie Rae Scott hospitalized DURHAM (AP) — The wife of the late North Carolina Gov. Bob Scott is hospitalized following a fall over the weekend. Jessie Rae Scott’s grandson said Tuesday his grandmother suffered severe head trauma when she fell Saturday on the way to a party and ultimately was taken to Duke University Medical Center. Scott Sutton says his grandmother showed some encouraging signs Tuesday but her condition was still on the “serious side.� Jessie Rae Scott was North Carolina’s first lady when her husband was governor from 1969 to 1973. She also ran for state labor commissioner in the mid-1970s. The Scotts were married for 58 years before Bob Scott died in January 2009 at age 79. She still lives in Haw River in Alamance County.

Man serving life in prison could be freed RALEIGH (AP) — North Carolina’s second-highest court says a first-degree murder charge should have been dismissed against a man accused of killing his estranged wife. The Court of Appeals ruled unanimously Tuesday in favor of Robert Lee Pastuer. He’s serving a life sentence after a jury convicted him last year. His wife, Narskelsky Pastuer, was found stabbed to death in 2006 in her car trunk near Franklinton. Judge Henry Hight denied a request by Pastuer’s attorney to dismiss the murder charge after prosecutors presented evidence. The appeals court says the evidence may raise a strong suspicion of guilt but fell short of what’s required to determine he committed the crime. Pastuer could be released from prison unless there’s another appeal.

UNEMPLOYMENT

NATION BRIEFS

Filibuster broken, benefits flow soon

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Senate Democrats broke through a stubborn Republican filibuster Tuesday and pressed to restart jobless benefits for 2½ million Americans still unable to find work in the frail national economic recovery. The Democrats were victorious by the single vote of a new senator sworn in only moments earlier. Senators voted 60-40 to move ahead on the bill, clearing the way for a final vote in the chamber on Wednesday. The recovery from the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s long and deep recession has produced relatively few new jobs so far, and millions of peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unemployment benefits began running out seven weeks ago as Congress bogged down in an impasse over whether the $34 billion cost of a fresh extension of benefits should be paid for with budget cuts or be added to the $13 trillion national debt. Democrats emphasized the plight of the unemployed and argued that putting money in the pockets of jobless families would also boost economic revival. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This bill is about jobs because unemployment insurance goes to people who will spend it immediately,â&#x20AC;? said Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That would increase economic demand. And that would help support our fragile economic recovery.â&#x20AC;? But the numbers are far smaller than last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $862 billion stimulus legislation. Republicans have blocked Democratic add-ons, such as aid to state governments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too small to have any noticeable impact

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., speaks with reporters after the Senate cleared a hurdle to restore unemployment benefits to millions of Americans who have been out of work for more than six months, at the Capitol in Washington, Tuesday. on the economyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s growth rate,â&#x20AC;? said Joel Naroff, president of Naroff Economic Advisors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But the benefits do provide an important safety net for people during these difficult economic times.â&#x20AC;? The economy has added 882,000 jobs so far this year â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but many of those were only temporary positions as the federal government geared up to conduct the U.S. Census. Many Republicans have voted in the past for deficit-financed benefits extension â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including twice under the most recent Bush administration. But with the deficit well in excess of $1 trillion, they now say it should be paid for with cuts elsewhere in the $3.7 trillion federal budget. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve repeatedly voted for similar bills in the past. And we are ready to support one now,â&#x20AC;? said Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What we do not support â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and we make no apologies for â&#x20AC;&#x201D; is borrowing tens of billions of dollars to pass this bill at a time when the national debt is spinning completely out of control.â&#x20AC;?

After initially feeling political heat this winter when a lone GOP senator, Jim Bunning of Kentucky, briefly blocked a benefits extension in February, the GOP has grown increasingly comfortable opposing the legislation. Democrats said that in tough times the government invariably lengthens the eligibility period for jobless benefits as more and more people chase fewer jobs. Such efforts have been deficit-financed â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which policymakers and economists say has a stimulative effect on the economy. The White House signaled Monday that the administration may seek another renewal of benefits in November if unemployment remains painfully high. After Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vote, President Barack Obama assailed Republicans for â&#x20AC;&#x153;obstruction and game playingâ&#x20AC;? and promised to redouble his efforts to win enactment of legislation to help small businesses and cash-starved states and to renew an expired middle-class tax cut. The vote to break the filibuster was a modest

victory for Obama and the Democrats, whose more ambitious hopes for jobs legislation have mostly fizzled in the face of GOP opposition in the Senate. The jobless benefits fight is looming as an issue for the upcoming midterm elections, with Democrats assailing Republicans as harshly seeking to deny benefits to the almost 5 million jobless people whose six months of state-paid benefits have run out. The measure provides federally financed extensions that allow the chronically jobless up to 99 weeks of benefits averaging $309 a week. But Republicans cast themselves as standing against out-of-control budget deficits, a stand thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s popular with their core conservative supporters and the tea party activists whose support theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re courting in hopes of retaking control of Congress. The filibuster-breaking vote came moments after Democrat Carte Goodwin was sworn in to succeed West Virginia Democrat Robert Byrd, who died last month at 92. Goodwin was the crucial 60th senator needed to defeat the Republican filibuster. The Senate gallery was packed with Goodwin supporters, who broke into applause as he cast his â&#x20AC;&#x153;ayeâ&#x20AC;? vote. Two Republicans, Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins of Maine, voted to end the filibuster. Ben Nelson of Nebraska was the lone Democrat to break with his party and vote to sustain it. After a final Senate vote, the House is expected to approve the legislation and send it to Obama later this week.

He called on the Senate to confirm her before Congress takes a monthlong summer break starting August 7 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a deadline Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said he looks forward to meeting. Strategists on both sides expect a few more Republicans to back Kagan in the full Senate, where Democrats have more than enough votes to confirm her.

Judiciary panel OKs Elena Kagan for Supreme Court WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Pushing toward an election-year Supreme Court confirmation vote, a polarized Senate Judiciary Committee Tuesday approved Elena Kagan to be the fourth female justice. Just one Republican joined Democrats to approve Kaganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nomination and send it to the full Senate, where sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expected to win confirmation within weeks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Elena Kagan will be confirmed,â&#x20AC;? predicted Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., the Judiciary chairman. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She will go on the U.S. Supreme Court.â&#x20AC;? Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., broke with his party to cast the sole GOP â&#x20AC;&#x153;yesâ&#x20AC;? vote on President Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nominee to succeed Justice John Paul Stevens, who retired in June. The vote was 13-6. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in Elena Kaganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heart is that of a good person who adopts a philosophy I disagree with,â&#x20AC;? Graham said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She will serve this nation honorably, and it would not have been someone I would have chosen, but the person who did choose, President Obama, I think chose wisely.â&#x20AC;? At the White House, Obama hailed the vote as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;bipartisan affirmation of her strong performanceâ&#x20AC;? in confirmation hearings, and said Kagan would be â&#x20AC;&#x153;a fair and impartialâ&#x20AC;? justice who understands the impact of Supreme Court decisions on everyday peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lives.

Cameron rebuffs US, says no new inquiry on bomber WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Drawn into an old disaster, British Prime Minister David Cameron said Tuesday he would not order a fresh investigation into why a convicted bomber was set free or whether BP had a role in it. President Barack Obama stood by his new peer but said that â&#x20AC;&#x153;all the factsâ&#x20AC;? must come out. In declaring his position â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to potentially make public more information from an earlier investigation of the manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s release, but not start a new oneâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; Cameron politely but roundly rebuffed the U.S. government in his first White House visit. Obama sought a diplomatic tone in response, saying the U.S. would â&#x20AC;&#x153;welcome any additional information,â&#x20AC;? and made clear he wanted it. Beyond the lingering anger, the case swirls anew with interest because of its possible links to BP, the company facing huge fallout in the United States for causing the Gulf oil spill.

Feds tamp down fears on leaks

NEW ORLEANS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oil spill chief tried to tamp down fears Tuesday that BPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capped well is buckling under the pressure, saying that seepage detected along the seafloor less than two miles away is coming from an older well no longer in production. Retired Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen also said at least five leaks have been discovered around the well machinery, but he dismissed them as â&#x20AC;&#x153;very small dripsâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; â&#x20AC;&#x153;not unlike an oil leak you might have in your car.â&#x20AC;? Over the past few days, since a 75-ton cap was placed over the well to keep the oil bottled up inside, BP and government engineers have been watching closely to see whether the well would hold tight or show signs of rupturing under the pressure. A rupture could cause a bigger and harder-to-control disaster. Allen has granted BP repeated 24-hour extensions to keep the cap in place, as long as the company monitors the well scrupulously. Meanwhile, the end game in the three-month crisis appeared to be drawing closer, with BP vice president Kent Wells saying the drilling of the relief well â&#x20AC;&#x201D; necessary to permanently plug up the well â&#x20AC;&#x201D; is on track. He said crews hope to drill sideways into the blownout well and intercept it at the end of July. At that point, they will begin the kill procedure

Oil cleanup workers continue their efforts on the beach in Grand Isle, La., Monday. Oil from the Deepwater Horizon incident continues to wash ashore on Grand Isle. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; pumping mud and cement into the hole deep underground to seal it up once and for all. BP said that stage could take anywhere from five days to a couple of weeks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everythingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s looking good,â&#x20AC;? Wells said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The relief well is exactly where we want it. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pointed in the right direction, and so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re feeling good about that.â&#x20AC;? BP wants to leave the cap on in the meantime. At one point, Allen wanted instead to relieve the pressure by opening up the cap and siphoning oil up to ships on the surface, but he has relented in the past few days. Opening up the cap would have required allowing millions of gallons to gush into the sea again for a few days while the plumbing was hooked up. In the meantime, engineers are considering shooting drilling mud down through the cap to

increase the chances that the attempt to kill the well deep underground will succeed. The seepage detected from the seafloor briefly raised fears that the well was in danger. But Allen said another well is to blame. The seepage is closer to the older well than to the one that blew out, Allen said. Also, he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not unusual to have seepage around the old wells.â&#x20AC;? There are two wells within two miles of BPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s blowout, one that has been abandoned and another that is not in production. Around 27,000 abandoned wells in the Gulf arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t checked for leaks, an Associated Press investigation showed this month. The BP-leased Deepwater Horizon rig exploded April 20, killing 11 workers and touching off one of Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worst environmental crises. The well has spewed

â&#x20AC;&#x153;LOOK TOO FAMILIAR?â&#x20AC;?

somewhere between 94 million and 184 million gallons into the Gulf. BP said the cost of dealing with the spill has now reached nearly $4 billion. In other spill-related developments Tuesday: n Meeting with President Barack Obama at the White House, British Prime Minister David Cameron turned down a request for a new investigation into Scotlandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s release of a man convicted in the 1988 bombing of a jetliner over Lockerbie. BP has disputed allegations that it pressed for the manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s release because it was seeking access to Libyaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oil fields. n BP said it is selling some oil fields and other major holdings in the U.S., Canada and Egypt to Apache Corp. for $7 billion to help cover the costs of the oil spill. Some or all of the proceeds will go toward a $20 billion victims compensation fund that BP agreed to last month under pressure from the Obama administration. n At a hearing in suburban New Orleans, one of the ill-fated rigâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drilling supervisors told Coast Guard investigators that the rigâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crew didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop drilling or properly notify regulators when a hydraulic leak was discovered in a critical safety device weeks before the blast. Well site leader Ronald Sepulvado testified that he and others aboard the rig believed the leak wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t prevent the device, called a blowout preventer, from functioning properly.

Stocks struggle higher in choppy trade; Dow up 75 NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Investors are trying to get a read on the economy using earnings reports. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re finding itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not so easy. The result Tuesday was yet another erratic day of stock trading. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 75 points after having fallen 140 in early trading in response to a series of disappointing revenue reports. Analysts were hard-pressed to come up with a reason for the turnaround. But trading was extremely light, and that tends to skew stock prices. Analysts said some investors were getting a little more upbeat as they awaited earnings reports from Yahoo Inc. and Apple Inc. after the close. But those reports came in mixed, just like those from the many companies that have also reported second-quarter results. Appleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stock surged in after-hours trading, but Yahoo fell. Like IBM Corp., Johnson & Johnson and Goldman Sachs Inc., its revenue fell short of expectations. Investors have been quick to sell on even a whiff of bad news. Early Tuesday, they were motivated by the reports from IBM, J&J and Goldman. Investors have been focusing on revenue rather than bottom-line earnings because of the link between companiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sales and the economy. If revenue is down because consumers arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t spending, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sign that the economy could remain weak. Investors seem to have decided as Tuesday wore on that earnings didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look quite as bad as they first thought. Analysts noted that Goldmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drop in revenue

was similar to those reported by JPMorgan Chase & Co., Citigroup Inc. and Bank of America Corp. Their revenue fell not because of a weak economy, but because their customers decided to avoid the financial marketsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; turbulence during the spring.

Trump sues Palm Beach County, airport over noise MIAMI (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Donald Trump is suing a south Florida county and its airport to quiet down. A lawsuit filed Monday in Palm Beach County Circuit Court is the latest legal action by Trump in a decades-old disagreement over noise control at Palm Beach International Airport, which is near Trumpâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ritzy Mar-a-Lago club. Trump has a home at the club, which is open only to members and invited guests. Assistant County Attorney Andrew McMahon declined to comment on pending litigation. The lawsuit also names the airportâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s director, Bruce Pelly, who did not immediately return a phone call Tuesday left by the Associated Press. The county failed to assess noise and associated pollution from jet engines that has particular impact on Mar-a-Lago â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a National Historic Landmark, the lawsuit said. It asks to block the airportâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s planned runway expansion, which aims straight at Trumpâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home. Trump was part of a group that founded the Good Neighbor Council for Aircraft Noise Control, which has fought to keep noisy planes away from the area. A 1995 Trump lawsuit that stemmed from the same issues was settled out of court.

Lohan reports to jail for 90 days

LYNWOOD, Calif. (AP) — Whisked away to a women’s jail in an unmarked sheriff’s car after a brief hearing, Lindsay Lohan reported Tuesday for a 90-day sentence that the troubled actress likely will serve in isolation, and which may be significantly shortened. Wearing dark denim jeans, a gray top, black corset belt and black jacket, the 24-year-old Lohan showed up at the Beverly Hills courtroom about 10 minutes late. After a short hearing, she rose and was handcuffed behind her back to serve her time for a probation violation. Lohan was accompanied to court by her mother, Dina, and younger sister Ali, who wiped away tears after her sister was taken into a lockup. Her estranged father, Michael Lohan, yelled, “We love you Lindsay!” as his daughter was led away. She was then taken across town to the Century Regional Detention Facility in the industrial suburb of Lynwood. In court, Lohan was represented by her longtime attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, who had resigned earlier but never filed a formal motion with the court. Famed celebrity attorney Robert Shapiro said Friday that he had agreed to represent the actress, but

Actress Lindsay Lohan Lohan reported Tuesday to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department for a 90-day sentence that the troubled actress likely will serve in isolation, and which may be significantly shortened. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel said Tuesday that he had told her hours earlier that he would not take the case. Holley said after the hearing that Lohan had decided she did not want Shapiro to represent her. “She’s stepped up, she’s accepted responsibility,” Holley said of her client. “She’s scared as anyone would be, but she’s as resolute and she’s doing it.” Prosecutor Danette Meyers said she thought Lohan was receiving the appropriate sentence. She said the case, which

is atypical for the attention it receives, spotlighted that drunken driving is a serious offense with consequences. “Someone can get killed,” Meyers said. “Hopefully it has opened a number of eyes.” While the judge did not address Lohan’s tardiness Tuesday directly, she did order her to report to probation officials within a day of her release from jail. The judge had previously ordered Lohan to report within two days. Revel also has ordered officials not to allow Lohan to serve any of her sen-

tence on house arrest or work release. Two weeks ago the judge determined that the “Mean Girls” star violated her probation by missing seven alcohol education classes since December. She had been on probation since August 2007 after pleading guilty to misdemeanor drug charges and no contest to three driving charges. Lohan, a prolific user of the microblogging site Twitter, posted a message roughly 12 hours before her court appearance referencing her looming incarceration. “The only ‘bookings’ that I’m familiar with are Disney Films, never thought that I’d be ‘booking’ into jail eeeks,” Lohan posted. The jail and rehab stints have left some of the actress’ projects in limbo, including her planned portrayal of porn star Linda Lovelace in a biopic. Once considered an up-and-coming star, Lohan has in recent years been better-known as a tabloid staple and for the criminal case she has struggled to put behind her. Her probation had to be extended for a year to give Lohan more time to complete her alcohol education courses and Revel ordered weekly attendance in December.

Schwarzenegger names Geena Davis to California panel

NYC police accuse rapper Ice-T of driving offense

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger on Tuesday appointed actress Geena Davis to a California commission established to promote women’s equality. Davis Schwarzenegger named the 54-year-old actress to the Commission on the Status of Women. The nonpartisan panel advocates for women and girls in areas such as education and access to health care. Davis, a Democrat, has worked off screen to reduce gender stereotyping. She is the founder of the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in the Media and is a partner with United Nations Development Fund for Women. “I am delighted to join the governor and this commission,” Davis said in a statement. “This appointment affords an important opportunity to improve the lives and well being of girls and women throughout California.” She won an Oscar in 1989 for her supporting role in “The Accidental Tourist” and was nominated for best actress in 1992 for “Thelma and Louise.” The appointment lasts four years and requires Senate confirmation. The 17 commissioners receive a $100 per diem.

NEW YORK (AP) — New York City police say they have arrested rapper-actor Ice-T on accusations of driving with a suspended license. Police say the entertainer was driving a 2009 Cadillac near West 40th Street and 11th Avenue on Tuesday when officers stopped him for not wearing a seat belt. They said they ran Ice-T a check and discovered his license was suspended. The NYPD said he would be given a ticket and released. His publicist did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Ice-T has played Detective Fin Tutuola on the TV drama “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” since 2000.

Soup shop that inspired ‘Seinfeld’ reopens in NYC

NEW YORK (AP) — The bisque is back. The soup stand that inspired the Soup Nazi episode on “Seinfeld” reopened in midtown Manhattan on Tuesday, six years after its famously brusque owner, Al Yeganeh, shut it down and licensed his recipes to a franchising company. More than 100 people were waiting in line for the noon reopening of the tiny storefront, including a few regulars who remembered the days when Yeganeh ladled broth and imposed discipline from behind the cramped counter. Much about the shop was the same as in the days before “Seinfeld” made the place famous, including its strict ordering rules, now posted in nine languages. “THE LINE MUST BE KEPT MOVING. Pick the soup you want! Have your money ready! Move to the extreme left after ordering!” But some things are different. Yeganeh neither owns nor operates the store now. Like other Original SoupMan stores around the country, it is a franchise, although company President Robert Bertrand said Yeganeh remains involved in the business. “He’s not going back there to dish out the soup, but he is still the heart of the company,” Bertrand said. “He still has a key. He handpicked the operator. His soups are his babies.”

EPA takes new look at gas drilling, water issues

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — So vast is the wealth of natural gas locked into dense rock deep beneath Pennsylvania, New York, West Virginia and Ohio that some geologists estimate it’s enough to supply the entire East Coast for 50 years. But freeing it requires a powerful drilling process called hydraulic fracturing or “fracking,” using millions of gallons of water brewed with toxic chemicals, that some fear could pollute water above and below ground and deplete

aquifers. As gas drillers swarm to this lucrative Marcellus Shale region and blast into other shale reserves around the country, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is taking a new look at the controversial fracking technique, currently exempt from federal regulation. The $1.9 million study comes as the nation reels from the Deepwater Horizon environmental and economic disaster playing out in the Gulf of Mexico. The oil and gas industry

steadfastly defends the process as having been proven safe over many years as well as necessary to keep the nation on a path to energy independence. Studies have “consistently shown that the risks are managed, it’s safe, it’s a technology that’s essential ... it’s also a technology that’s well-regulated,” said Lee Fuller, director of the industry coalition Energy In Depth. “A fair study,” Fuller added, “will show that the procedures that are there

now are highly effective and do not need to be altered — the federal government does not need to be there.” But because of the oil disaster, conservation groups say the drilling industry has lost it credibility and the rapid expansion of shale drilling needs to be scrutinized. “People no longer trust the oil and gas industry to say, ‘Trust us, we’re not cutting corners,’ “ said Cathy Carlson, a policy adviser for Earthworks, which supports federal regulation and a moratorium on fracking in the Marcellus Shale. Just six years ago, an EPA study declared the fracking process posed “little or no threat to underground sources of drinking water” and with that blessing, Congress a year later exempted hydraulic fracturing from federal regulation. Now the agency, prodded by Congress even before the Gulf disaster and stung by criticism that its 2004 study was scientifically flawed and maybe politically tainted, will bring the issues to the heart of the land lease rush in the Marcellus Shale: Canonsburg, Pa., on Thursday and Binghamton, N.Y., on August 12.

Workers move a section of well casing into place at a Chesapeake Energy natural gas well site near Burlington Pa., in Bradford County. EPA hearings earlier this month in Fort Worth, Texas and Denver focused on issues including drilling in the Barnett Shale of Texas, and in Colorado and Wyoming, which have experienced similar natural gas booms. Natural gas is also being recovered from the Haynesville Shale in north Louisiana, the Fayetteville Shale in northern Arkansas and Woodford Shale in southern Oklahoma. In Texas, where drillers have sunk more than 13,000 wells into the Barnett Shale in the past decade, fear of the cancer-causing chemical benzene in the air above gas fields from processing plants and equipment has

spurred tests by environmental regulators and criticism of the state’s safeguards. In Colorado, numerous residents contend gas drilling has spoiled their water wells. Advancements in horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing technology in the late 1990s significantly increased the yield and economic viability of tapping shale gas wells and led to the current natural gas boom, starting in Texas with the Barnett Shale. Fracking is now considered the key to unlocking huge, untapped natural gas reserves across the United States at a time when natural gas is emerging as a greener energy alternative to coal or oil.

CUBS’ PINIELLA TO RETIRE AT END OF SEASON CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago Cubs manager Lou Piniella is going to retire at the end of the season. Piniella announced his decision Tuesday before a game against the Astros. The 66-yearold manager says he is looking forward to spending more time with his family. He says announcing his retirement now — just after the All-Star break — gives the team time to find a replacement. Piniella is in the fourth and final year of his contract with the Cubs, who have struggled this year and have gone 102 years without a World Series title.

NBA CONTRACT ISSUES KEEP AMARE FROM WORLDS LAS VEGAS (AP) — A USA Basketball spokesman says Amare Stoudemire will not play for the United States in the world championships because of problems insuring his contract. The New York Knicks new forward was expected to be one of the Americans’ top players in Turkey, but the team learned it would be without him Tuesday, the day training camp opened. Stoudemire has had microfracture knee surgery among his injuries, a major reason Phoenix wouldn’t offer him a maximum length contract. The Knicks then gave him a five-year deal worth nearly $100 million.

NHL CANES AGREE TO 1-YEAR DEAL WITH CARSON RALEIGH (AP) — The Carolina Hurricanes have agreed to a one-year contract with defenseman Brett Carson. The two-way deal will pay him $500,000 at the NHL level and $105,000 on the American Hockey League level next season. Carolina president and general manager Jim Rutherford says Carson proved he can be a consistent contributor for the Hurricanes last season. The 24-year-old Carson played 54 games with Carolina. He had two goals and 10 assists.

She’ll then finish the rest of the National Pro Fastpitch season with the Chicago Bandits before calling it quits at the age of 29 to focus on her family.

Yellow Jackets infielder Neal O’Quinn makes the out at second base against Triton in the CCSSL regular season finale on Monday evening in Sanford.

Despite missing playoffs, Jackets pleased with summer By RYAN SARDA sarda@sanfordherald.com

SANFORD — Lee County will be hosting the Central Carolina Scholastic Summer League semifinals and finals on Friday and Saturday night. Unfortunately, the Yellow Jackets won’t be there. Lee County concluded its CCSSL season with a 10-1 victory over Triton on Monday night in Sanford, wrapping a summer season where the Yellow Jackets finished 11-4 overall and finished in third place in the Central Division with a 9-3 mark. “It was a good summer overall,” said Yellow Jacket assistant coach Neil Rosser. “We barely missed the playoffs and we had a better record

this summer than we had last summer. So, we definitely got better as a program.” The Yellow Jackets lost both summer meetings with Garner, who ended up taking the No. 2 seed from the division. FuquayVarina, one of Lee County’s Tri-9 Conference rivals, won the division after wrapping up its summer season with a 13-2 record and splitting both games with the Yellow Jackets. “If we had beaten Garner last week, we’d definitely be in the playoffs right now,” said Rosser. “We did everything that we had to do. It’s a little disappointing that we didn’t make it, but it’s just how the cards fell for us.”

Jackets pitcher Nick Durazo delivers to the plate.

ON THE FRINGE

Perception on Woods depends on putter By DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland — Tiger Woods was all over the leaderboard at the British Open. Too bad this was on a Monday. Locals roam the Old Course all the time on the most public of major championship properties, which King David I of Scotland granted to the people of St. Andrews way back in 1123. But some of them did more than walk their dogs in the late evening and early morning hours after Louis Oosthuizen won the British Open.

The letters and numbers on the scoreboard along the 13th hole were rearranged to show someone named Rob Rixon at 9 under. He was joined on the board with Tiger Woods, who was listed at 99 over. Even more telling of the respect the world’s No. 1 player gets these days was the large yellow-and-blue scoreboard atop the grandstand to the left of the 18th fairway. Most of the letters were still in place for the annual message, “Well played Louis.” But instead of “See you at Sandwich in 2011” for the next Open, it read “Shaggy Woods.”

Schools, agents on notice by NCAA By NOAH TRISTER AP Sports Writer

Southern California was slapped with a two-year bowl ban last month. Now North Carolina, South Carolina and Florida are acknowledging that the NCAA has taken a look at their athletic departments. All four situations appear to

involve possible wrongdoing involving athletes and agents. Is the NCAA suddenly cracking down on this sometimes-seamy side of college athletics? Rachel Newman-Baker, director of agent, gambling and amateurism activities for the NCAA, won’t go that far. But she said the organization believes it is making progress.

“I think people are kind of tired of sitting around and watching some of these abuses, and so I think you’re starting to see that there’s more and more people that are willing to talk,” she said. “I do think we have been able in the last couple years to develop much stronger information related to potential violations. ... People understand that something will be

done with that information, and they feel comfortable sharing it.” The NCAA clearly welcomes help from would-be whistleblowers, in part because relationships between agents and college athletes are so difficult to police. The NCAA bars players from striking agreements with agents if

Edwards made the wrong move

U

sually I have a little trouble getting started on my column. Usually I have some trouble coming up with that attention-grabbing first sentence or paragraph. And yes, I guess it shows. But not this week! I have so many different angles or ideas that I’m unsure of which way to go. I thought about making a comparison of Carl Edwards with someone being charged with a crime. I had given some thought to trying to find an Andy Griffith episode in there somewhere but I decided to go with YouTube and Bullwinkle. Yes, I have lost my mind and now I will prove it. Do you ever have trouble finding that lost episode of a certain television show, or maybe that movie clip that you want to see over and over? How about all of the weird stuff that people film of themselves doing ridiculous things? Well, look no further than YouTube. What a phenomenon! I can watch anything from the Three Stooges or Rowan’s and Martin’s Laugh-In to Bullwinkle just by pushing a button. And speaking of Bullwinkle, there was are characters on the cartoon named Mr. Peabody and his sidekick Sherman. They always travel back in history in the wayback machine. And I did that Sunday afternoon while checking out YouTube. As I was searching for some Bullwinkle stuff I decided to check out some NASCAR stuff as well. I was intrigued, and, for lack of a better word, upset at Carl Edwards after Saturday night’s Nationwide race. So I looked up an accident from 1991 and found it right there on YouTube. I didn’t do it alone — I want to thank Rick Ziblay for his help — but I saw a wreck that was nothing compared to Edwards and Brad Keselowski. In 1991 while racing on the last lap at Sears Point, Ricky Rudd spun out the late Davey Allison. By today’s standards, it was no big deal. Well, hold on! NAS-

CAR penalized Rudd and awarded the victory to Allison. It was the last turn of a hard-fought race, and they took from one and gave it to the other. All it was, was racing. I think they should do more than that with Edwards. His actions were uncalled for and all it did was to promote his bad sportsmanship and the pressure he is feeling from not winning. When both drivers started the last lap it was not the first time they had raced side-by-side. Earlier they entertained the sparse crowd with some good, clean racing. Oh, they touched a little, but nothing extreme. And then on that last lap, as they entered the first turn, Keselowski got under Edwards, held his line, slid a little up the track, but maintained enough control to not push Edwards. As they went down the back stretch you could feel the tension. Heck, Keselowski had taken Edwards out at Talladega and Edwards returned that favor at Atlanta, so you knew there was potential for an accident. And Edwards does not like losing. Into the third turn, Keselowski nosed out a little, and as they get through the fourth, ikt was Keselowski by almost the length of the car. Notice I said almost? Well, Edwards wanted to be the bad boy and turned directly into Keselowski’s rear fender and hit him and then drove right through it. One could plainly see the

intent in his actions. Now I know NASCAR has allowed the drivers some freedom this year but that was totally uncalled for. To put another driver at risk and then to be boastful about it was about all I could handle. The world of racing was very fortunate that Keselowski’s car didn’t stop with the driver’s side exposed. It could have been a different outcome. My point is simple. Allow the drivers to mix it up but don’t let them use their cars as deadly weapons. One time is an accident and the second time starts a trend. If NASCAR has the audacity to take a victory away in 1991 for something that was by today’s standards minor, then what should they do with Edwards? I think they do the same as they did back then. Award the victory to Keselowski and move Edwards to last car on the lead lap. I for one am no longer a Carl Edwards fan. I didn’t say I was a Brad Keselowski fan either, but I am fan of fair play and that was not it. Enough about that. If you want to see it then just pull up YouTube and type it in the search window. You can find it all right there, and as they say, the film don’t lie. Well, this week I start my vacation. The family is taking a trip to Indianapolis to attend the Brickyard 400. We are going to have a great time by seeing some family, having some fun in beautiful downtown Indianapolis and golfing at Brickyard Crossing while the women folk get a much-needed and deserved massage. And, oh yeah, we will attend the race too. Watch for my report next week. That is, if I have recovered enough to write about it. Don’t worry, I will try not to do something stupid enough to be on YouTube. I will leave that to Bullwinkle and Curly, Moe and Larry. See when I get back!

They lost a best-of-three series to Laney 2-1 and came just two innings away from going to their first state championship since 2001. “We improved greatly as a program and that’s always the main goal with summer ball,” said Rosser. “We just wanted to get better and get more prepared for the spring. We’ve got a great of group of guys that enjoy playing with each other and they’re a lot of fun to coach. We have a great group coming back next season.” Without players like Frye, Wilson, Julio Paredes and eight graduated seniors, several players got vital playing experience this summer and helped keep the Yellow Jackets on the winning path. Pitchers Jacob Pedley and Bradley Godwin got much-needed experience on the mound this summer. Tyler Castleberry, who saw some action on the mound in Game 1 of the East Regional final, had a big summer on the mound as well. “I thought our pitching was solid all summer long,” said Rosser. “Guys like (Pedley) and (God-

(Durazo) and (Castleberry) also pitched well throughout the year for us.” Offensively, the bats continued rolling for the Yellow Jackets. Furl, Chase Arrington and Alex Mercer all had productive seasons at the plate. Neal O’Quinn, in his final two games this summer, finished 6-for-8 at the plate. “We definitely hit the ball very well,” said Rosser. “We had a number of guys who produced for us offensively.” The CCSSL semifinals will be played at 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. Friday night at Lee County High School. The championship game will be held at 7 p.m. Saturday and will also be played at Lee County. Rosser and the Yellow Jackets sure wish they could be there. “It’s very disappointing,” said Rosser. “At the same time, our guys know that we had a great summer. We played in a tough conference and we didn’t finish that far behind the two teams that finished ahead of us. We’re going to take the success we had this summer and build from it for the spring.”

The stage covered 199.5 kilometers (124 miles) with its start in Bagneres-de-Luchon and finish in Pau, Pyrenees region, France, on Tuesday.

Armstrong tries for stage win

PAU, France (AP) — In his final days of his final Tour de France, Lance Armstrong showed some of the old fire. The seven-time champion, knowing full well he no longer stands above all others in his sport, fought from beginning to end in the hopes of going out with a stage victory high in the Pyrenees. It was not to be. Armstrong finished sixth after breaking away early in the 16th stage and holding his own through four major climbs of the Tour’s most demanding leg. But he lost in a final sprint, with Frenchman Pierrick Fedrigo winning the 124-mile ride. Alberto Contador was almost seven minutes behind, his Astana team asserting control over the

field. The defending champion from Spain kept the overall lead, eight seconds ahead of Andy Schleck of Luxembourg. The two rode a day after Contador apologized for the way in which he took the yellow jersey. On Tuesday, Armstrong, broke away on his own at one point before he was caught by a small group of riders. All of which was a bit of a change for the 38-year-old Texan. “It was harder than I expected. It’s been awhile since I sprinted,” he said. “Just not quick enough. I’m not the best guy in the race but I still have the spirit of a fighter. ... I wasn’t fast enough in the end. Fedrigo is very fast and he deserves the win.”

The Tour ends in Paris on Sunday, and Armstrong acknowledged his career was nearing the finish. “Lance Armstrong is over in about four days,” he said. Armstrong’s coach, Johan Bruyneel, said the course was not ideal for Armstrong to prevail. “You really have to be very, very strong to ride away,” he said. “And there’s always going to be one or two guys with him, who are equally strong in the sprint,” he said. Contador lauded Armstrong’s effort. “I believe he really wanted to go for that stage today,” he said. “For myself, I would have been really happy if he had won that stage because he really deserved it,” he said.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Brett Favre tells USA Today that he did not discuss a deadline for making a decision on returning this season during a recent visit with Minnesota Vikings coach Brad Childress. Favre told the newspaper Childress came to visit him in Hattiesburg, Miss., on his way home from vacation in Florida. The two chatted as they did around this time last year, but Favre still has not made a decision on returning for a 20th NFL season. Favre had ankle surgery earlier his summer and says it “is not where I would like it to be.” He says he thinks the world of Childress and the two shared a laugh about butting heads in December over the direction of the offense. The Vikings open training camp on July 30.

Yanks put Pettitte on DL; say Mitre will start NEW YORK (AP) — Andy Pettitte is in a hurry to return from a left groin strain, although the New York Yankees left-hander knows it’s not going to be a speedy recovery. “When I heard four to five (weeks) I was thinking, ‘Oh gosh,’” Pettitte said Tuesday before the Yankees played the Los Angeles Angels. “I hope it heals up quick. I don’t know if it’s realistic.” The 38-year-old All-Star was injured Sunday while throwing a pitch in the third inning against the Tampa Bay Rays. An MRI showed he had a Grade 1 strain, which is the mildest on a scale of 1 to 3. The move was retroactive to Monday.

Dodgers put Manny on 15-day DL with strained calf LOS ANGELES (AP) — Manny Ramirez is back on the disabled list for the third time this season. The Los Angeles Dodgers slugger has a strained right calf. Ramirez had been out since leaving Friday’s game at St. Louis with tightness in his calf. The team made the move Tuesday. Manager Joe Torre calls it a significant strain and says Ramirez could be out about three weeks.

Brad Miller signs with Rockets HOUSTON (AP) — Brad Miller signed with the Houston Rockets on Tuesday, reuniting the 7-foot center with his favorite coach in Rick Adelman. Miller signed a three-year, $15 million contract to back up Yao Ming, who is expected to be ready for next season after sitting out a year to recover from foot surgery. “We’ve been looking for somebody to give us strong minutes at the center spot and pair with Yao Ming for some time,” Rockets general manager Daryl Morey said.

Bynum postpones knee surgery LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles Lakers center Andrew Bynum has postponed his knee surgery. Lakers spokesman John Black said Tuesday that Bynum pushed back the date of his surgery to correct a meniscus tear in his right knee to July 28. Bynum injured his knee in Game 6 of the Lakers’ playoff series against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Cleveland fans dumping LeBron gear

CLEVELAND (AP) — They’re taking the jerseys off their backs for LeBron James. Then tossing them away — for a good cause. Stung by the NBA superstar’s decision to leave Cleveland and play for Miami, Cavaliers fans have been unloading their unwanted No. 23 jerseys, T-shirts and other clothing items bearing James’ name at locations around the city. Organizers are shipping the discarded James gear to homeless shelters in South Florida. “It’s like any breakup,” said Beau Miller, who began the campaign with three friends. “You want to give all your stuff back.” For the past week, Cleveland fans have been dropping off their LeBron-related items

at Yours Truly Restaurants in Northeast Ohio. Miller said he and his friends wanted to turn a negative situation into a positive and that the response has been “extraordinary.” “We wanted something good to come out of this,” he said. “We didn’t want another ‘I hate LeBron campaign.’ There’s enough of that going around.” Doug Libelich, manager of the Yours Truly location in Shaker Heights, Ohio, said there has been a steady flow of fans — mostly young ones — ridding themselves of LeBron-related clothing, including the iconic 23 jerseys, which were wildly popular during James’ seven seasons with the Cavaliers. “It’s been picking up in the last few days,” he said. “All kinds

Woods Continued from Page 1B

Woods was expecting a warm reception at the home of golf, where he had won the claret jug the past two times, and there were no surprises. It’s been that way for the last few months. Aside from the tentative applause when he first showed his face to fans on a golf course that Monday at Augusta National, he still gets the biggest gallery and loudest cheers. Gone is the reverence — as a person and a player. The biggest change might be the perception of Woods, and it goes beyond what anyone puts on a scoreboard. Woods’ record victory at St. Andrews a decade ago is legendary for the fact he did not play out of a single bunker in 72 holes when he won at 19-under par for an eightstroke victory. It matched the largest margin in the Open since golf’s oldest major championship went to 72 holes at the turn of last century. But when Oosthuizen rolled in an 18-foot birdie putt on the 12th hole Sunday — and Paul Casey lost his way through the gorse — the South African was at 17-un-

they want to retain amateur status, and there are strict guidelines against accepting benefits — well-known rules mostly because they’re the ones broken in such high-profile fashion. USC’s penalties stemmed from improper benefits given to Heisman Trophy winner Reggie Bush by fledgling sports marketers. Then, in just the last week, reports have surfaced that North Carolina and Florida’s football programs were being looked at in connection with possibly improper contact with agents — and a South Carolina player was being questioned in connection with the North Carolina probe. The USC case sent a message that there may be little leniency when it comes to these issues, outside experts say. “We’ll see what kind of evidence the NCAA is able to dig up,” said Darren Heitner, CEO of Dynasty Athlete Representation. “If there’s a lot of chatter, and nothing gets done about it, then there will be real issues with the NCAA being a legitimate institution. They have to take this seriously.” And with the NCAA taking it seriously, schools have extra incentive to make sure their houses are in order. Southeastern Conference commissioner Mike Slive says his league brought in consultant Joe Mendes to meet with officials at all 12 schools, and several have retained him in an effort to help athletes avoid violations. And agents take notice as well whenever there’s a

der par and had an eight-shot lead with six holes still to play, including the par-5 14th with the wind behind him and a closing hole where old men (Tom Lehman) were capable of driving the green and making eagle. Oosthuizen smartly played it safe the rest of the way, even treating the 17th hole as a par 5. All he wanted was his name on the base of that beautiful jug, so finishing at 16-under 272 for a seven-shot win were just numbers. As for that amazing feat of avoiding all those bunkers on the Old Course? “Yes, I finally hit one at the back of the 14th,” Oosthuizen said Monday in mock resignation. “It was the bunker behind the green, which was a good place for me to miss.” The day after Woods returned home, the U.S. Junior Amateur began in Michigan. Tied for the lead after the first round of qualify was Jordan Spieth, the 16-year-old from Dallas. He not only is the defending champion, the kid made a name for himself at the Byron Nelson Championship when he was on the leaderboard during the weekend and eventually finished six shots behind the winner. Woods won an unprecedented

ESPN: Alabama looking into possible NCAA violation TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Alabama coach Nick Saban tells ESPN. com that university compliance officials are trying to determine if defensive end Marcell Dareus violated NCAA rules by attending an agent’s party in Florida. NCAA investigators have reportedly interviewed North Carolina players and South Carolina tight end Weslye Saunders regarding the same party in Miami’s South Beach. The ESPN report says the NCAA is trying to determine who paid for the trip. An Alabama spokesman tells The Associated Press that the school has no comment.

show of toughness from the NCAA. “About 10 or 15 years ago we had the same kind of situation ... where there was a crackdown. They felt the behavior was getting out of control, and they stepped in, but it’s been a decade now since that happened,” said Tony Agnone, who represents about two dozen NFL players. “ Any time you subject an institution to this kind of situation, it always works. It lets people know that there’s some people that are checking up on it.” Newman-Baker said players need to be educated on what is allowed — and the NCAA needs to do some basic detective work to make sure its regulations are being followed.

of stuff.” James’ messy separation with Cleveland has caused a negative backlash against the 25-year-old, who announced his decision to leave the Cavs as a free agent during a one-hour TV special on July 8. Following his announcement, some fans burned James’ jersey in protest. While appreciating the pain James caused Cleveland fans, Miller, along with friends Chris Jungjohann, Andrew De Crane and Tim Zeller, saw his departure as an opportunity to help those less fortunate.

Now you can’t help but wonder if Spieth can join Woods as the only multiple winners, or even win three in a row. There’s still a long way to go. And it’s easy to get caught up in the snapshot of Woods’ career instead of looking at the big picture. He last won a major in the 2008 U.S. Open, when he had only one good leg and needed one extra day to beat Rocco Mediate at Torrey Pines. The 0-for-7 streak he is riding still doesn’t match a pair of 0-for-10s in the majors from the 1997 Masters to the 1999 PGA Championship, and from the 2002 U.S. Open to the 2005 Masters. It’s not time to panic just yet. Woods now has played seven tournaments without winning, the longest he has ever gone at the start of a season since turning pro. Even during his first big swing change in 1998, he won the Johnnie Walker Classic in Thailand by rallying to beat Ernie Els. His next stop is Firestone, where last year Woods became the first player in PGA Tour history to win seven times on the same course. Even so, there is a difference in his game.

Woods has not been a threat on the back nine of any tournament, even the Masters and U.S. Open, where he tied for fourth. There was a feeling when he opened the British Open with a 67 that it was more of an ordinary score in calm conditions — Fredrik Andersson Hed also shot a 67 that day — than the start of something special. And that’s where he is right now. There is nothing special about him except a record from the past. And while it sounds overly simple, it’s all a matter of putting. Whether it was a sign of desperation or that he’s thinking too much, Woods switched putters for the first time since 1999 the first three rounds of the British Open. Worse yet is that he switched back for the final round, and perhaps it’s just a coincidence that he led the field in putting Sunday with 27 putts. Think back to that 66 he shot at Pebble Beach in the third round to give himself a chance. The 3-wood around the tree and onto the green on the 18th was his most memorable shot of the year, but what made it so was making a couple of tough birdie putts on the two holes preceding that.

Begay: Tiger just needs time VERONA, N.Y. (AP) — Notah Begay III says Tiger Woods is hitting the ball as well as ever, though he isn’t surprised that Woods is struggling to recapture his game. Begay, who roomed with Woods at Stanford, said Tuesday that it’s difficult for anybody to address marital woes every week, especially publicly. “It’s going to take some time for the emotions to settle and for him to sort of get 100 percent focused on golf,” Begay said at a press conference promoting the Turning Stone Resort Championship. Woods now has played seven tournaments without winning. It’s the longest he has ever gone at the start of a season since turning pro, and he hasn’t been a threat on the back nine of any tournament. Not even at the Masters or U.S. Open, where he tied for fourth. On Sunday, he finished tied for 23rd in the British Open at St. Andrews.

HOROSCOPES Universal Press Syndicate

Happy Birthday: Be prepared to make unusual choices that will mold your future in a way you least expect. The time for change -- like it or not -- is now. Socializing and discovering what’s available will broaden your outlook and help you realize what you can and want to have in your life. This can be an exciting time, if you embrace it. Your numbers are 4, 12, 24, 26, 30, 33, 46 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Take advantage of anything and everything that is going your way. You can add to your skills, which will pay off when asked to do something you regarded as impossible in the past. Don’t let the uncertainty you face hold you back. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Ask others for help to expand your horizons and reach your goals. Travel will lead to information and interaction with people with whom you can collaborate to accomplish something extraordinary. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Push and pull situations will lead to disaster. You have to keep an even balance when dealing with others. Fairness will be the key to getting things done and taking care of professional and personal business. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Do things that will help your emotional wellbeing. Home improvements will pay off mentally, physically and financially. Do much of the work yourself and you will feel proud of your accomplishments. A partnership is in the stars. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Travel, intrigue and an interesting turn of events are heading your way. Take on a new challenge and face whatever comes your way, knowing you have what it takes to come out on top. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Double-check everything you do and what others do for you. You cannot assume that anything is going to be perfect, unless

you give it your undivided attention. There is money to be made and household changes that will improve your surroundings and increase your assets. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): A partnership can lead to greater opportunities, as long as you lay down the ground rules before you make a commitment. Don’t give up too much because you are emotionally vulnerable. Mixing personal and professional interest will be difficult. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): The more organized you are, the easier it will be to plan for the future. Last-minute social invitations may not be easy for you to attend. However, it’s a must in terms of the people you will meet and the knowledge you will gather. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Don’t let someone else’s responsibilities put a hold on the things you want to do to improve your surroundings or your personal life. Uncertainty regarding love may surface if you cannot find a way to resolve your differences. Maintain upfront and open communication. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): You don’t need someone confusing your life or your decisions. Go it alone, especially if it is a financial venture. You have to be ready to act when the time is right if you are going to get ahead. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You can expect to face some deception when dealing with partners. You should be considering ways to utilize your talents more efficiently. Things aren’t likely to pan out if you are working in conjunction with someone, unless you got promises in writing. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Emotional upset will surface and disagreements with partners will lead to a delay in your plans. Don’t get angry, even if you are disappointed. Meddling or using emotional tactics to get others to bend to your wishes will backfire.

DEAR ABBY: When I was a young teen, my mother gave me a copy of your booklet “What Every Teen Should Know.” She left it on my bed for me to read at my own pace, and let me know that I could come to her if I had any questions, when I was ready to ask them. For years that booklet served as a reference guide for me. I also lent it to many of my friends whose parents were not so forthcoming with this important information. Being informed and not believing urban myths made a big difference in our decisions — and we’re all doing well now. A decade later, I often work with teens who have received no comprehensive education about sex, drugs, or the impact of decisions they make during adolescence. Your booklet remains an important tool in these kids’ educations. I write to encourage all parents, grandparents and relatives of teens to keep a copy of this booklet handy — and to thank those who have already done so. — KRISTEN WOYTONIK, DOVER, N.H. DEAR KRISTEN: Thank you for your endorsement of my teen booklet. I am pleased that you continue to find it useful. Today many young people engage in adult activities at a much earlier age than the teenagers of previous generations. That’s why it is so important for parents to take the initiative and discuss alcohol, drugs, sex and FAMILY VALUES with their children well before nature takes over and they start experimenting. My teen booklet contains an-

swers to commonly asked questions such as: How old must a girl be before she can get pregnant? Can a girl get pregnant the first time she has sex? What time of the month is a girl 100 percent safe? How old must a boy be before he can father a child? Another important topic covered is HOW TO AVOID DATE RAPE AND WHAT TO DO IF IT HAPPENS.

Shipping and handling are included in the price. My teen booklet also contains information on contraception and sexually transmitted diseases and how to recognize them. It has been distributed in doctors’ offices and used to promote discussion by educators and religious leaders, and is often used by parents who find it difficult to discuss sex with their children. o

DEAR STUMPED: After the second — or third — wedding, one would think the marriage would be a quiet, low-key affair. And because you have already given her four wedding gifts, what you should send her is your good wishes for a long and successful marriage. o DEAR ABBY: Many years ago I made a conscious and deliberate decision to leave the dating scene. Whenever I tell a woman I’m not interested or have made other plans, she becomes upset and angry with me. I try to be tactful and diplomatic with women, but it invariably results in acrimonious behavior toward me. I am exasperated with the situation. What’s your advice? — NICE GUY IN NEW JERSEY DEAR NICE GUY: Of course when a woman hears that you’re “not interested” she will be offended. A compliment it’s not! And a woman who becomes upset and angry if you say you have other plans isn’t someone you would want to be involved with anyway. Next time try this: “I’m sorry, but I’m NOT AVAILABLE.” It’s the truth — you’re not!

ODDS AND ENDS It’s a bird. It’s a plane. No. It’s... a donkey MOSCOW (AP) — Authorities in Russia are opening an animal cruelty probe into a weekend stunt on a beach in southern Russia in which a donkey parasailed high over the surf. Amateur video footage showed men attaching a parasail harness to the trembling mule. The English-language Kremlin news channel Russia Today reported that sunbathers were distressed at the sight of the flying donkey, which brayed in fear as it glided above the bay for half an hour. Russia Today reported the donkey was shell-shocked but survived. Reports said the donkey flight was a promotional stunt. Employees of a leisure firm in the village of Golubitskaya on the Azov Sea could face two years in prison if they are charged and convicted of animal cruelty.

Confessional can’t become sauna, church rules VIENNA (AP) — Some Catholics may well sweat in the confessional as they admit to things they shouldn’t have done. But Vienna’s archdiocese has ruled that the box-like structure where believers confess their sins cannot be turned into a sauna. Bidding on a confessional described on eBay as ideal for conversion into a one-person sauna, a small bar or a children’s playhouse was ended when the archdiocese stepped in. Archdiocese spokesman Erich Leitenberger told the daily Salzburger Nachrichten that auctioning “objects that were used for dispensing the sacraments is not acceptable.” Confessionals “should not be converted into saunas or bars,” he was quoted Tuesday as saying. Leitenberger did not return calls to the AP. The confessional was offered for auction by a Vienna church undergoing renovations. Curiously, the highest reported amount offered by one of the 40 bidders before the item was yanked from the internet Monday was 666.66 euros. The number 666 is commonly associated with the Antichrist — or the devil. See answer, page 2A

We humans are different from animals Q: What makes us any different from other animals, except for our superior mental abilities? As far as I can tell, we’re just another type of animal, and once we die that’s the end. I assume you don’t agree, but why? -- Z.L. A: Have you ever really thought about how vastly different we are from any member of the animal kingdom? The gap is enormous, and you need to take it seriously because it demonstrates clearly that we’re not just animals. Yes, there are similarities; we have bodies like they do, and some day -- like them --our bodies will die and decay. Animals also feel pain (just as we do), and apparently some can even experience emotions in limited ways. But we aren’t just a higher form of animal! We are unique, and the reason is because God has put something of Himself within us -- what we usually call our soul or spirit. The Bible says, “God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them” (Genesis 1:27). Only we can think about who we are and why we are here. Only we can ask what the purpose of our lives should be, and how we ought to live. Most of all, only we can come to have a personal relationship with God, and know that we will be with Him through all eternity. The Bible says, “You made him a little lower than the angels; you crowned him with glory and honor” (Hebrews 2:7).

TRAVEL BRIEFS

Will tourists return to Panhandle? By MATT SEDENSKY Associated Press Writer

PENSACOLA BEACH, Fla. — Efforts to cap the oil well are under way. But even if they are successful at stopping the gusher, the tourist-dependent Florida Panhandle now faces the hurdle of luring visitors back to a coastline that still could see tar balls wash ashore. Businesses along the emerald-water coast fear the technical know-how being used to plug the runaway Gulf of Mexico well won’t be enough to salvage its peak tourist season, with images of oily beaches still fresh in travelers’ minds. The entire Panhandle has reported sluggish business even though its exposure to the spill has mostly been limited to its western end, near Pensacola. Even there, beaches have been mostly clean for the last two weeks, with scattered reports of tar balls and other oil. But even with the flow stopped, cleanup remains, and winds and currents could still bring the mess back to Florida. “To try and inject confidence into the market between now and the remaining 45 days of summer will be almost impossible,” said Julian MacQueen, owner of a Hilton and a Hampton Inn on Pensacola Beach. MacQueen estimates he’s lost $3 million so far, between his Pensacola Beach hotels and two oth-

Efforts to cap the oil well are under way. But even if they are successful at stopping the gusher, the tourist-dependent Florida Panhandle now faces the hurdle of luring visitors back to a coastline that still could see tar balls wash ashore. ers in Orange Beach, Ala. He says he’d like to think that once the massive leak is fully stopped, tourists will return in force, but he doesn’t believe it will happen. Even though recent reports of oil activity on Pensacola’s coastline have been relatively minor, visitors are still subjected to backhoes and bulldozers parked on beaches, workers in hazmat suits taking water samples and, at night, crews with headlamps scouring the sands with shovels and sifters, looking for tar balls. Farther east, at the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort, marketing manager Laurie Hobbs said it will be impossible to make up the loss of business, but that she’s optimistic loyal customers will return. “We had a very successful spring and we would have continued that momentum, but we will never

see the full momentum that we saw going into spring. We’ll never see it this summer,” she said. “But we’ll just turn our marketing engines to try and regroup. We can get people back to the beach and we can get people back to where they love.” Destin and Fort Walton Beach tourism officials have been appealing to the families that visit summer after summer to continue their traditions. The “Support Your Beach” campaign highlights the Gulfarium marine park, along with golf, back-bay fishing and dining. Michelle Kelly, spokeswoman for the Emerald Coast Convention and Visitors Bureau, said while progress being made in stopping the oil flow brings a sense of relief, that campaign would continue. “The best way to help everyone out is to still continue to come down here, still keep your vacation plans,” she said. Tourism accounts for 10 percent of the economy in

Escambia County, the western tip of the Panhandle that’s suffered the worst oil contamination, said Rick Harper, a University of West Florida economist. Dependence on tourism steadily builds east along the coast to Panama City Beach and Bay County, where it contributes almost 40 percent to the local economy during the summer peak, according to Harper. The spill came at the worst possible time for the Panhandle. Coming off a weak 2009, this year was showing signs of improvement, and businesses hoped to capitalize during the summer, when the majority of tourists visit. In Pensacola, July alone accounts for up to one-fourth of the year’s business, said Ed Schroeder, director of the Visit Pensacola tourism office. The full extent of the sluggishness of business this year is not yet known, but Schroeder said June saw “massive cancellations” and declines of between 20 percent and 40 percent.

First family wraps up packed Maine holiday BAR HARBOR, Maine (AP) — President Barack Obama and the first family had an energetic weekend vacation along Maine’s Atlantic coast. The president, first lady Michelle Obama and daughters Malia and Sasha boarded a small military jet serving as Air Force One and took off from the Bar Harbor airport Sunday after a weekend of hiking and biking in Acadia National Park. They also played tennis, went boating and enjoyed the food in the resort town of Bar Harbor. From the moment they arrived on Friday, it was clear they were determined to make the most of their time, much of it spent in the park. The Obamas set the tone right away, motorcading straight from the airport to a park bike trail for an hour of cycling. What followed was a whirl of outings, as their motorcade crisscrossed Mount Desert Island. They went boating on Frenchman Bay, hiked on a park nature trail, played tennis, hung out at the pool, toured a lighthouse, had lunch and dinner at harborside restaurants and — of course — stopped for ice cream. Even their dog Bo had fun, playfully wrapping up a Coast Guard lighthouse keeper in the leash Sasha, 9, was holding. But the high point — literally — was their visit to the summit of Cadillac Mountain, listed by park officials as the tallest peak on the Eastern Seaboard. From the granite mountaintop, as they listened to a park superintendent, the Obamas beheld a spectacular vista

Tropical fun and sun in heart of Paris PARIS (AP) — Sand, palm trees, bikinis. Parisians can get their tropical fix without ever leaving the French capital. “Paris Beach” has opened for action for the ninth year, with more than a ton of recycled sand poured on the quays of the Seine River. It was launched Tuesday and welcomes visitors until Aug. 20. Parisian Isabelle Bonin says the 2.5-mile stretch of artificial beach is “a different way to discover Paris.” Soyeon-Kim, a South Korean who has lived in Paris for a year, had thought a beach squeezed into the city center would be “weird.” But now, she says, “I see it’s beautiful.” The event was started in 2002 by Paris Mayor Bertrand Delanoe. It is aimed at giving those who can’t leave town a touch of summer fun.

Biscuit Basin boardwalk reopens in Yellowstone YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. (AP) — One of Yellowstone National Park’s famous geyser basins is open to visitors again. The Biscuit Basin area opened to visitors for the first time this season on Friday. The basin is three miles north of Old Faithful. The area had been closed the past 14 weeks while workers replaced the boardwalk. National Park Service employees and members of the Youth Conservation Corps replaced or built more than 2,400 feet of trail. Federal money paid for the $121,000 project.

MOJAVE, California (AP) — A company working to send tourists on suborbital flights tested its spacecraft with a crew for the first time. Virgin Galactic says the craft remained attached to a specially designed airplane throughout a six-hour flight over California’s Mojave desert Thursday. On its website, the company congratulated the crew and said “Objectives achieved.” It says the two crew members evaluated all of the spaceship’s systems and functions. Virgin Galactic says the flight test program will run through 2011 before it starts commercial operations.

YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK, Calif. (AP) — Yosemite National Park is offering more sites for campers, including a campground that’s been closed for 13 years. Park officials said Yosemite Creek Campground is open for the first time since 1997. The campground was closed after a bridge was destroyed in a flood. Crews have finished rebuilding the bridge, making the campground once again accessible. Several campgrounds along the Tioga Road and the Bridalveil Creek Campground on the Glacier Point Road, which were closed during the winter of 2009, are also open again. Even with the additional sites, officials say all campsites on the reservation system are booked through the summer.

rowth is one of the few constants in our world. We grow in size, we grow in our beliefs, in our faith, in our strength and in our understanding of things around us. Our hair grows, our nails grow, and sometimes even our waistband grows. Growth is in fact so constant that it is sometimes hard to recognize it unless you step back in time to see where things were days, months or years ago. INSIDE Growth is See our so inevita- weekly Dining ble that we Guide for grow with- local menu out even options knowing Pages 4-5C that it is happening. One of the most beautiful kind of growth is growth in a family. Our family obviously grew last November with the birth of our son. It will grow once again this coming September when my sister gets married — a day that I know will be on a list of one of the most special for our family. I’ve known for a few years now that I love my brotherin-law to be, and I love all that he has brought to my sister’s life. It has been special to watch her grow as a person and to watch them grow as a couple, leading them up to the day that will soon bring them together and allow them to continue to grow both individually and together for years and years to come. As we welcome Mark into our family this year, we have also had the opportunity to get to know his family more — my sister’s new family. During a recent weekend together, we were able to get to know each other more, sharing stories, ideas, plans and, of course, food. Mark’s mom made a recipe that she called Carolina Brunch Style Grits. I’m not sure that I had ever had grits before, but I sure loved this ver-

he site was a longforgotten city right-of-way. For more than 50 years, it has been an eyesore. In all that time, no one ever came to mow the tall weeds or rake the leaves. It was home to a large colony of territorial and aggressive wasps. Early in the summer of 2009, a group of homeowners gathered to clean the area up and the seeds of a community garden were sown. A quartet of neighbors took the Sustainable Vegetable Production course at CCCC’s West Harnett Center and by the time the course ended, they went away dreaming of extended growing seasons and propagating their own seedlings to put in the ground in the coming spring. A volunteer came and plowed the ground in October (clay and sand, no surprise), and a winter cover crop was planted. It shone emerald green all winter long, a promise of things to come. In the spring, the man with the plow came again and turned the cover crop over into the soil. Raised beds were constructed from donated lumber. Money was scraped together to purchase a rich mixture of topsoil and compost. Wood mulch was hauled in from the City of Sanford. Six families from the neighborhood came and planted tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, squash, radishes, beans, herbs. The bees and the lady bugs came to help them grow.

Cooperative Extension in Lee County and 10 local organizations that have chosen to participate in the inaugural program. Funding from this project was provided through a number of grants received by the Lee County 4-H program including United Way of Lee County, Environmental Impact Resource Conservation and Development, and the USDA/ Natural Resource Conservation Service. Each week, The Herald will highlight one of the 10 different Satellite Garden sites with a story and photos submitted by a participating member of the garden. This week’s feature was submitted by Irene Smith on the Weatherspoon Street Satellite Garden.

ust recently, while camping in the woods, I spotted a number of ticks crawling on and around our camping gear. Ticks, those eight-legged arachnids, give me the creepy-crawlies. They invade your personal space to feast on your blood. Ew! There are only a few places in the world that do not have tick pests. Unfortunately these places are not very hospitable to humans either (think Antarctica!). So, ticks are pests that we will have to live with, especially in North Carolina. Ticks are related to spiders and mites — they have eight legs. The tick goes through four stages of development and to complete each stage, the tick must take a blood meal. Usually each stage of tick development feeds on a different type of host. Ticks are most active in the spring, summer, and fall. Some species are even active in the winter! Ticks reside in leaf litter, foundation cracks, and other secluded places until they need a blood meal. They then move to grass or shrubs where they hop on board unsuspecting passersby. The tick searches for a place on the skin to attach. Its mouthparts are barbed in order to aid with attachment (this also makes it difficult for removal!). Also, a glue-like substance is exuded to help the mouthparts stay put. Female ticks feed for up to 12 days and can increase in size by 100 times! Male

dentity theft and fraud have become two of the most prevalent crimes in recent years as our society has become more information-transfer based. These terms refer to all types of crime in which someone unlawfully obtains and uses another person’s personal data in a way that involves fraud or deception, usually for economic gain. Although anyone can be a victim of identity theft, seniors have been targeted heavily due to typically having substantial savings, little debt, or real estate assets that are no longer subject to a mortgage. Identity thieves can take over a victim’s financial identity by opening new lines of credit or taking steps to sell off a senior’s holdings while pocketing the cash. In certain cases reported by the North Carolina Department of Justice, seniors have learned of attempts to sell their homes, farms and automobiles out from under them. Some have found that mortgages have been placed on their homes and money disbursed to scammers who used their names. If the criminal takes steps to ensure that bills

The Why: Do you love bananas? They are delicious and packed with nutritional benefits, and a medium banana has only 105 calories. However, have you ever tried putting one in your pocketbook, a child’s lunch bag or a briefcase? The USA-made Banana Saver is designed to protect individual bananas from getting bruised on the go. It’s basically a case specifically designed for one banana. The Health Bonus: Bananas are loaded with potassium. One banana contains 422 milligrams of the 4,700 mg per day that the Institute of Medicine recommends as an adequate supply for adults, and more than

BOOK REVIEW

In new novel, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Lucyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is half-ape, wholly a person By M.L. JOHNSON Associated Press Writer

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lucyâ&#x20AC;? (Alfred A. Knopf, $24.95), by Laurence Gonzales Anthropologist Jenny Lowe rescues another scientistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s orphaned daughter when war breaks out in the Congo. But when she returns to Chicago with the 15-year-old girl, Lowe begins to notice some bizarre traits: Lucy can hear termites in the wall. She makes a nest to sleep in a tree. Encountering an escalator for the first time, she emits a series of fearful barks. Jenny also rescued the journals of Lucyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father, the only record of his work in the Congo. Skimming through them, Jenny realizes the reclusive scientist had hatched a mad plan: Convinced the Congoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great apes would become extinct, Donald Stone decided to preserve their best traits by combining their genes with those of humans to create a new, superior species. He altered the genes of one bonobo so the ape could carry a child of mixed parentage. Then he used his own sperm to inseminate the animal. After a dozen or so tries, Lucy was born.

handle. Gonzales also taps into current politics. His Congress passes a law defining a human as someone whose genetic code matches that on file with the National Institutes of Health. In real life, North Dakota lawmakers voted down a bill last year that would have defined a human as â&#x20AC;&#x153;any organism with the genome of Homo sapiens.â&#x20AC;? Supporters said the bill was meant to bestow human rights on fertilized human eggs. But despite the complex scientific and political issues raised, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lucyâ&#x20AC;? is fundamentally a story about love â&#x20AC;&#x201D; between a mother and daughter, between friends, between a man and woman. Gonzales also excels at creating universal moments. For example, anyone who has lost a child can understand Jennyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inability to stay in her home once Lucy is gone. The reminders â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a prom dress, shoes, hairbrush â&#x20AC;&#x201D; are too painful. Yet Gonzales skillfully juxtaposes scenes of tragedy with those of hope, so that â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lucyâ&#x20AC;? is both heartbreaking and heartwarming, hard to put down and hard to forget. It is original like Lucy.

DEAR SAVVY SENIOR: Do you know anything about the new long-term care insurance program that was part of the healthcare reform law? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m interested in finding out some of the details but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know where to look. What can you tell me? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; INTERESTED PATRON

National long-term care insurance

DAILY ACTIVITIES

DEAR INTERESTED: The new insurance program youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re inquiring about is known as the Community Living Assistance Services and Support (CLASS) Act, which was created to help the vast majority of Americans who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have insurance for longterm care. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what you should know.

CLASS overview As part of the new healthcare reform law, CLASS is the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first long-term care insurance program that will provide its participants with cash to help pay for long-term care services when they need it. CLASS will help pay for things like home health care, respite and adult day care, home modifications and homemaker services, as well as assisted living facilities and nursing home care. Statistics show that roughly two out of every three Americans, age 65 and older, will need longterm care at some point. While many of the details of this new program are still being worked out,

Jim Miller Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit www.savvysenior.org.

we do know that CLASS will be a voluntary program offered through employers, so to be eligible youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to be working. Retirees will not be eligible (unless they continue to work part time), nor will nonworking spouses or the unemployed. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll also have to pay premiums for a vested period of five years before you can receive benefits, and you have to continue working for three of those years. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re self-employed, or if your employer does not offer CLASS coverage, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be able to sign up through a public program that has yet to be established. Another great aspect

of CLASS is that you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be rejected for coverage because of your health, so it will help people with pre-existing medical conditions or a disability who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t qualify for private long-term-care insurance. You also need to be aware that because of the size and scope of CLASS, it will be several years before the program is up and running. The U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary actually has until October 2012 to present the full details of the plan, so sign-up wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t likely start until 2013.

What it will cost The premiums youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to pay to participate in CLASS are not yet known, but the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimates that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll average around $123 per month (less for young enrollees, more for older ones). However, people living below the poverty line will pay only $5 a month. You also need to know that CLASS is an â&#x20AC;&#x153;opt outâ&#x20AC;? program. That means that if your employer participates, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll automatically be enrolled unless you decline.

What it will provide The law says the average minimum CLASS benefit must be at least $50 a day, but the CBO expects the benefit average to be in the $75 per day range - enough to help pay for a home health aid but well below nursing home costs, which currently average around $200 a day. To receive benefits, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to be unable to perform two or three activities of daily living like eating, bathing, dressing, using the toilet or be cognitively impaired. Once you qualify, however, the benefits continue as long as you need care.

Savvy tips The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will provide more information on CLASS as the details of the program unfold. In the meantime, the American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging offers some useful information on their website at aahsa.org/classact. aspx.

6C / Wednesday, July 21, 2010 / The Sanford Herald BACK TO SCHOOL SANDWICHES

Not PB&J again! Livening up the lunchbox this year By JOSEPH DeVITA For The Associated Press

French fries in a sandwich? Why not? We aimed for kid-friendly creativity when crafting these deliciously different sandwiches for back to school. French fries stand in for the mashed potatoes and stuffing on our Thanksgiving sandwich (and may be just crazy enough for little ones to love). If you’d prefer a healthier version, use sweet potato fries. Speaking of crazy ingredients, we went with waffles instead of bread when we rethought the classic ham and cheese. We also suggest serving it with a small container of maple syrup for dunking. And if popcorn wedged into the center of a PB&J doesn’t do it for you, try pretzels or potato chips.

THANKSGIVING SANDWICH

Start to finish: 5 minutes Servings: 1 2 tablespoons cream cheese 2 slices whole-wheat bread 3 deli-slices turkey breast 1 small handful frozen french fries, toasted or microwaved until warmed 2 tablespoons cranberry sauce Spread the cream cheese onto 1 side of each slice of bread. Top 1 side with the turkey breast, then the french fries, then the cranberry sauce and the second slice of bread.

HAM AND CHEESE WAFFLE SANDWICH Start to finish: 10 minutes Servings: 1 2 teaspoons honey mustard or Dijon mustard 2 frozen waffles, toasted 3 deli-slices maple ham 2 deli-slices Swiss cheese 1 tablespoon unsalted butter Maple syrup (optional) Spread the mustard over 1 side of each waffle. Top 1 side with 1 slice of cheese, the ham, the other slice of the cheese, then the other waffle. In a large skillet over medium, melt the butter. Fry the sandwich for about 1 minute on each side.

FRENCH TOAST PB&J

AP Food Editor

Start to finish: 10 minutes Servings: 1 1 large egg 1 tablespoon milk 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon Pinch salt 2 slices whole-wheat bread 2 tablespoons peanut butter 1 tablespoon fruit jam 1 tablespoon butter Powdered sugar In a wide, shallow bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, cinnamon and salt. Use the bread, peanut butter and jam to make a peanut butter and jam sandwich. Spread half of the peanut butter on each slice of bread. This helps the sandwich hold together. Soak the sandwich in the egg mixture for 2 minutes per side, pressing it gently with a fork to help it absorb the egg. Heat a medium skillet over medium. Add the butter. When the butter has melted, add the sandwich and fry for 2 minutes, or until the bottom is lightly browned. Use a spatula to flip the sandwich, then cover the skillet and cook for another 2 minutes, or until browned on the second side. Serve sprinkled with powdered sugar.

The constant hunt for new and exciting lunches to pack for my son has led to some pretty creative experiments. The fried egg and cheddar on whole wheat was a flop. Cold sirloin and cold carbonara were hits. Your basic grilled cheese got a lukewarm reception. Even with the addition of ham. But peanut butter and pretzel sandwiches have become a standard item. And that got me thinking about your basic peanut butter and jelly sandwich. If you can grill a cheese sandwich, why not a PB&J? So I tried it with a bit of butter in the skillet and it was a huge hit, especially once I added a bit of cinnamon to the butter. Warm melty peanut butter and sweet jam. What’s not to love? Riffing on that was how I came up with this cross between a grilled peanut butter and jelly and French toast. I simply made a classic PB&J, soaked it in egg, then fried it on both sides. Add a sprinkle of powdered sugar and you’ve got a little bit of heaven.

FARMING

Ease up, but still Dairy owners promote camel milk enjoy gardening as you age By SUE MANNING Associated Press Writer

By DEAN FOSDICK For The Associated Press

Sydney Eddison believes you can weed out loads of demanding yard work as you age without reducing the enjoyment of gardening. The 78-year-old author says itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s simply a matter of gardening more wisely. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I knew so many friends older than myself who drove themselves away from the land they loved and then promptly died,â&#x20AC;? said Eddison, who opted to remain alone on her secluded but celebrated fouracres-plus in Connecticut after her husbandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death, rather than move to smaller surroundings. She has shaped the wooded property, with house and barn, into a country showcase over the last half-century, giving tours and writing a halfdozen books about her experiences. Yet something had to give, and that something was painstaking garden maintenance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I threw my body at the garden over the years and got away with it, but I have to watch it now,â&#x20AC;? Eddison said. First, she had to have a hip replaced, and then she developed a cyst on her back, leaving her bedridden for a time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had a horrendous winter, but it made me realize thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nowhere Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d rather be but here,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do anything last year, but now I can at least stake tall plants and weed.â&#x20AC;? She gets the job done with some help from friends, and by applying many of the shortcuts described in her most recent book, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gardening for a Lifetime: How to Garden Wiser as You Grow Olderâ&#x20AC;? (Timber Press, 2010). A few of her â&#x20AC;&#x153;gleaningsâ&#x20AC;?: n Reject perfection. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nature does not clean up every dead leaf in the fall and gardeners donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to either. Dead leaves left under shrubs serve as a mulch, which eventually breaks down and contributes nutrients to the soil.â&#x20AC;? n Thin the perennials. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In my garden, the square footage devoted to flowering perennials demands

ticks will also attach, but do not feed as long as females. The female tick mates while attached and can lay thousands of eggs after dislodging. Secluded places such as crevices and leaf litter are a favorite place for ticks to lay eggs. Eggs hatch in about two weeks and the life cycle starts over. There are four ticks that are found in North Carolina: the American dog tick, the brown dog tick, the lone star tick, and the black-legged tick (formally known as the deer tick). Most of

more time and energy than the rest of the acre and a half under cultivation. The greater the variety of perennials you grow, the more work your border will entail.â&#x20AC;? n Switch to shrubs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Shrubs afford more value for less work. Some rarely need pruning.â&#x20AC;? n Shade gardens are good. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Shade-tolerant plants are easier to maintain than sun lovers. One of the reasons is that weeds are also sun lovers. In the shade, they become feeble and can be controlled by a layer of mulch.â&#x20AC;? n Incorporate your surroundings: â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you own even a scrap of woodland, you can make it an extension of your garden by edging it with a few berried and flowering shrubs. Naturalize daffodils on the forest floor.â&#x20AC;? n Miniaturize. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is nothing fake about a container garden. It is the real thing. And for anyone who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do the heavy labor of in-the-ground gardening, gardening in containers can provide much of the same pleasure.â&#x20AC;? Gardening can be physically and emotionally rewarding as you grow older, and there are many ways to overcome the challenges of a deteriorating body. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If your vision is failing, choose tools with bright handles,â&#x20AC;? said Rebecca Haller, director of the Horticultural Therapy Institute in Denver. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Be more careful with trip hazards â&#x20AC;&#x201D; uneven paving stones or hoses lying across a path. Grow vertical so you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to stoop. Put things on wheels rather than pushing or pulling. Garden closer to the house so you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tire so much coming and going. Have a spot where you can rest. Pace yourself.â&#x20AC;? Making the most of the time you have left is one of the older gardenerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s primary tasks, Eddison said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;How beautiful can you make your garden with the resources you still have at your command?â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the question I keep asking myself. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the answer, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m working on it.â&#x20AC;? vided there.

these ticks do attach to humans at some stage of their life and some carry human diseases. Seed ticks, commonly found in Lee County, are the mite-like larvae of the lone star tick and are abundant in the fall. In Lee County, ticks are very prevalent and humans need to learn to live with them.

LOS ANGELES â&#x20AC;&#x201D; To milk a camel, you need warm hands, a gentle touch and quick timing â&#x20AC;&#x201D; camels give milk only in 90-second bursts. Gil and Nancy Riegler, owners of the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest camel dairy near San Diego, said the extra work pays off with milk that is therapeutic, nutritious and delicious. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also illegal to sell in the United States. That hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stopped the Rieglersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; enthusiasm for their unusual dairy, selling other products such as camel milk soap, giving tours and taking their 22camel herd on the road to educate others. In a few years, they hope, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration might establish a test on camel milk that would allow them to make money in other ways. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we could sell camelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s milk right now, we would have to charge $40 to $60 a liter,â&#x20AC;? said Nancy Riegler, who lives with her husband on their 34-acre dairy in Ramona, northeast of San Diego. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because there are only a few thousand camels in the United States â&#x20AC;&#x201D; mostly at zoos and wild animal parks â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and few of them are breeding, which makes camel milk a rare commodity. It costs about $12,000 to buy an adult female camel, and $5,000 for a baby. Still, the Rieglers are sold on what they say are the benefits of camel milk over cow milk. They said it has more vitamin C, more anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-inflammatory properties and contains an insulin-like protein that works well in the digestive tract. Most camel milk is traded informally around the world, but in the future it could be worth roughly $10 billion, said Anthony

Nancy Riegler of Oasis Camel Dairy jokes with two of her camels in Ramona, Calif. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s illegal to sell camel milk in the U.S, but the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest camel dairy, near San Diego, gets by selling camel milk soap, giving tours and taking their 22-camel herd on the road. Bennett, dairy officer for the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In Russia, Kazakhstan and India, doctors often prescribe it to convalescing patients while, in Africa, it may be recommended for people living with AIDS,â&#x20AC;? Bennett said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Research is also ongoing into the role claimed for camel milk in reducing diabetes and coronary heart disease.â&#x20AC;? The FDA allows people to drink camel milk, but it canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be imported or sold in the U.S. until a test for drug residues is validated, said FDA spokesman Michael Herndon. That could take a while, Herndon said, noting water buffalo milk was allowed in 2003 but it took another six years before all the tests were validated and accepted. Canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait? A Dubai company offers a camel milk chocolate bar, but it sells at a San Francisco shop for $12 for just 2.5 ounces. Despite the price, shop owner Jack Epstein said the camel bar is a steady seller. He favors it over bars made with milk from goat and sheep. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The camel milk doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

have any kind of earthy taste,â&#x20AC;? said Epstein, owner of Jack Epsteinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Covered Chocolate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In fact, it seems a little caramelly.â&#x20AC;? Experts caution, though, against expecting a boom in U.S. camel milk sales, in part because they produce so little milk. A cow produces six or seven gallons of milk a day while the Rieglers are lucky to get a gallon a day from one of their camels. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Camels are the most adaptive hoofstock on the planet, but they are not designed for bulk production,â&#x20AC;? said Rod Owlett, an animal care manager at the San Diego Zoo. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cows have been specifically bred for giving vast amounts of milk.â&#x20AC;? Until the FDA approves camel milk sales, the Rieglers are finding other ways to make a living â&#x20AC;&#x201D; he cuts gems and she shows birds. Together they do monthly open houses, offer camel rides, fair exhibits, private parties, turkey stampedes and school visits. Jomay Stillman of San Diego had seen the Rieglersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; show at a fair and liked it so much she took her family to the dairy on Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are happy cam-

els. They reminded me of a bunch of Labrador dogs with their dispositions and how they follow them around,â&#x20AC;? she said. Joan Bradley, her three sons, their wives and 10 grandchildren also have visited the camel dairy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We learned that if a camelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lip is not sticking out, it is getting agitated. The further its bottom lip is sticking out, the happier it is,â&#x20AC;? said Bradley, who lives in Poway, Calif. Besides the camels, the Rieglers have four donkeys, seven sheep, a miniature cow, four horses, 24 turkeys, 17 exotic birds, five cats, four dogs and one pig. They bought their first dairy camels â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a bull and two females from a private owner in Indiana â&#x20AC;&#x201D; in 2001, then spent a month training on a camel dairy in Israel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We got up every day and helped them milk their camels,â&#x20AC;? Nancy Riegler said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was like nothing in America. But we were stepping in and doing what those camels already knew,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our camels didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what we wanted them to do. We went slow and the training worked out great for us and the camels.â&#x20AC;?

To protect against identity theft, always check bills and account statements carefully for unusual charges and activities. Contact the bank or creditor immediately if you notice something suspicious. It is also a good idea to check your credit report regularly. Each of the three national creditreporting services must provide you with a free copy of your credit report once per year upon request. Requesting one report from each of these at four-month intervals (e.g. one in January, one in May, and one in October every year) is a good way to keep your credit monitored all year long. It is important to note that accredited

businesses will never ask for personal or confidential information through phone or email. Tips to Avoid Consumer Fraud: n NEVER give out your Social Security number, credit card or bank account number to a person who contacts you by phone or email. n ALWAYS call institutions or businesses that you have relationships with if you suspect that your information has been compromised. n DO NOT pay money up front to get a loan, collect a prize, or for debt settlement, credit repair or foreclosure help. It is illegal to require such a payment. n Be CAUTIOUS of door-to-door contrac-

tors and others offering home repair services. n AVOID get-richquick schemes. Beware of offers that sound too good to be true, or promise huge rewards with little or no risk. For more information and tips visit the North Carolina Department of Justiceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website at www. ncdoj.gov or the Better Business Bureauâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s NEW ScamBusters website at http://www.bbbscambusters.org/ to learn about scams currently taking place in North Carolina.

AIDS BREAKTHROUGH

New gel helps prevent infection By MARILYNN MARCHIONE AP Medical Writer

For the first time, a vaginal gel has proved capable of blocking the AIDS virus: It cut in half a womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chances of getting HIV from an infected partner in a study in South Africa. Scientists called it a breakthrough in the long quest for a tool to help women whose partners wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use condoms. The results need to be confirmed in another study, and that level of protection may not be enough to win approval of the microbicide gel in countries like the United States, researchers say. But they are optimistic it can be improved. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the first time weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever seen any microbicide give a positive resultâ&#x20AC;? that scientists agree is true evidence of protection, said Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. The gel, spiked with the AIDS drug tenofovir, cut the risk of HIV infection by 50 percent after one year of use and 39 percent after 2 1/2 years, compared to a gel that contained no medicine. To be licensed in the U.S., a gel or cream to prevent HIV infection may need to be at least 80 percent effective, Fauci said. That might be achieved by adding more tenofovir or getting women to use it more consistently. In the study, women used the gel only 60 percent of the time; those who used it more often had higher rates of protection. The gel also cut in half the chances of getting HSV-2, the herpes virus that causes genital warts. Even partial protection is a huge victory that could be a boon not

just in poor countries but for couples anywhere when one partner has HIV and the other does not, said Dr. Salim Abdool Karim, the South African researcher who led the study. In the U.S., nearly a third of new infections each year are among heterosexuals, he noted. He will present results of the study Tuesday at the International AIDS Conference in Vienna. The research was published online Monday by the journal Science. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We now have a product that potentially can alter the epidemic trends ... and save millions of lives,â&#x20AC;? said Dr. Quarraisha Abdool Karim, the lead researcherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife and associate director of the South African program that led the testing. Mitchell Warren, head of the AIDS Vaccine Advocacy Coalition, a nonprofit group that works on HIV prevention tools, said the study shows a preventive gel is possible. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can now say with great certainty that the concept has been proved. And that in itself is a day for celebration,â&#x20AC;? he said. The gel is in limited supply; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a commercial product, and was made for this and another ongoing study from drug donated by California-based Gilead Sciences Inc., which sells tenofovir in pill form as Viread. If further study proves the gel effective, a fullscale production system would need to be geared up to make it. The study tested the gel in 889 heterosexual women in and near Durban, South Africa. Researchers had no information on the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s partners, but the women were heterosexual and, in general, not in a high-risk group, such as prostitutes.

Half of the women were given the microbicide and the others, a dummy gel. Women were told to use it 12 hours before sex and as soon as possible within 12 hours afterward. At the studyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s end, there were 38 HIV infections among the microbicide group versus 60 in the others. The gel seemed safe â&#x20AC;&#x201D; only mild diarrhea was slightly more common among those using it. Surveys showed that the vast majority of women found it easy to use and said their partners didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mind it. And 99 percent of the women said they would use the gel if they knew for sure that it prevented HIV. This shows that new studies testing the gelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s effectiveness without a placebo group should immediately be launched, said Salim Abdool Karim. The only other study testing the gel now compares it to placebo and will take a couple more years to complete. The study was sponsored by the Centre for the AIDS Programme of Research in South Africa, or CAPRISA; Family Health International; CONRAD, an AIDS research effort based at Eastern Virginia Medical School; and the U.S. Agency for International Development, or USAID. Gilead has licensed the rights to produce the gel, royalty-free, to CONRAD and the International Partnership on Microbicides for the 95 poorest countries in the world, said Dr. Howard Jaffe, president of the Gilead Foundation, the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s philanthropic arm. The biggest cost of the gel is the plastic applicator â&#x20AC;&#x201D; about 32 cents, which hopefully would be lower when mass-produced, researchers said.

90 percent of Americans are not meeting this recommendation. Potassium is necessary for muscle contractions (including your heartbeat), transmission of nerve impulses and the delicate balance of fluid and electrolyte regulation. Diets rich in potassium blunt the adverse effects of salt and help to lower blood pressure (one in five Americans has high blood pressure). In terms of stress relief, potassium helps to relax muscles. Bananas are also high in vitamin B6, which, according to research reported in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition, helps facilitate the synthesis of serotonin from tryptophan. What We Liked Best: You can put the entire unpeeled banana right in its very own case. Also, the Banana Saver has a builtin slot for making frozen banana pops â&#x20AC;&#x201D; just peel the banana and put it in the freezer. What We Liked Least: I was a bit concerned about the latch because it appears flimsy; however, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not. According to the company, it is â&#x20AC;&#x153;a living hinge designed for high usage applications.â&#x20AC;? What It Replaces: Bruised bananas. The Price: $3.95 each, plus shipping charge of $3.65 if you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find it at a store. Where to Buy: www. bananasaver.com

AquaVee Pilates Plus The Why: Having a portable water Pilates gym that you can use in any pool is pretty cool. The AquaVee is a uniquely designed apparatus that looks almost like an octopus made of exercise bands. The bands can be used in several ways â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to do a â&#x20AC;&#x153;watered-downâ&#x20AC;? version of Pilates or as a tool to swim in place. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right, swimming in place. If you have access to a pool and want to swim for exercise, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not really practical to swim laps, this can be your answer. High-pressure suction cups adhere to the pool tiles, then you attach the bands to your legs with straps â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and swim. If

you decide to do a band workout after, you just keep the bands strapped to your legs. The Health Bonus: Doing exercises in water helps to reduce wear and tear on your joints. What We Liked Best: It weighs less than 4 pounds and can travel with you wherever you go in its own mesh carrying bag. What We Liked Least: Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bit pricey for bands, and swimming in place with straps on your legs is a bit awkward. What It Replaces: Sun tanning, eating fries and doing nothing at the pool. The Price: $99. Where to Buy: www. aquaveeonline.com

Dr. Praegerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s California Veggie Burgers The Why: Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to eat meat? Worried about saturated fat? Still like the idea of eating burgers? Well, Praeger to the rescue. The company was founded in 1994 and is still run by practicing cardiac surgeon Dr. Peter Praeger (performing heart surgery at Hackensack University Medical Center). The burgers are quick and easy to make, extremely tasty, low in calories and really high in fiber â&#x20AC;&#x201D; each one actually has 5 grams of fiber, which is 20 percent of the daily amount recommended for a healthy diet. The Health Bonus: These burgers are also high in vitamin A; more than 50 percent of the daily recommended amount. The vitamin A comes from carrots and the spinach, which means it contains beta carotene, an antioxidant involved in the growth and repair of skin tissue that may protect against sun damage. They also have 14 percent of the daily need for iron, which is often lacking in womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s diets. What We Liked Best: How quickly theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re ready, and how great they taste. Also, the ingredients list is pretty clean â&#x20AC;&#x201D; thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not much there except natural foods. What We Liked Least: They tend to fall apart rather easily, and the sodium is a bit high at 250 milligrams. What It Replaces: Regular, high-saturatedfat, low-fiber burgers. The Price: $4.99 per box of four.

Where to Buy: If you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find them in the frozen-foods section of your local supermarket, you can buy them online at www.drpraegers.com. The only problem is that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a bit pricey with a $35 delivery charge per cooler (about seven boxes). Ingredients: Carrot, onion, string beans, soybeans, zucchini, oat bran, peas, spinach, expeller pressed canola oil, broccoli, textured soy flour, corn, oat fiber, red pepper, arrowroot, cornmeal, cornstarch, garlic, salt, parsley, black pepper, allnatural vegetable gum. Nutrition Information: 1 burger (2.75 ounces): 110 calories; 4.5 g fat; less than 0.5 g saturated fat; 250 mg sodium; 13 g carbs; 5 g fiber; 6 g protein.

The New Whole Foods Encyclopedia by Rebecca Wood The Why: This book goes beyond the average encyclopedia by offering more than just a description of each food. In each entry, the author includes anything from how to store a food to when and where to buy it and its medicinal benefits, among other things. Wood also throws in occasional recipes and anecdotes and even notes when she doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t recommend trying a certain food. The Health Bonus: Woodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sections on usage, buying and medicinal benefits often include information about a foodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nutritional value. In the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cashewâ&#x20AC;? entry, for example, she explains that cashews support lung function and nurture dry skin. She also recommends purchasing roasted, rather than raw cashews, as they are easier to digest. What We Liked Best: This is not a boring encyclopedia. The personal recommendations (and warnings!), stories and recipes make it a companion guide rather than a reference book. What We Liked Least: Wood occasionally recommends expensive or difficult-to-find variations of a food. Those working on a budget may find it difficult to follow her advice. What It Replaces: Boring food encyclopedias. The Price: $20. Where to Buy: www. amazon.com and www. bn.com
