ARIZONA APPEALS ORDER BLOCKING PARTS OF LAW

5-year-old died Monday after being pulled from area lake

Arizona asked an appeals court Thursday to lift a judge’s order blocking most of the state’s immigration law as the city of Phoenix filled with protesters, including about 50 who were arrested for confronting officers in riot gear

From staff reports SANFORD — The funeral for a 5-year-old Sanford boy who died Monday, a day after being pulled from a lake unconsious in Western Harnett County, is set for 11 a.m. Saturday at Turners Chapel Church. Elijah Caddick, who had just started kindergarten at Tramway Elementary this month, will be buried in the church’s cemetery following the service. Caddick died Monday at UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill after drowning at the Carolina Lakes Marina Sunday afternoon. According to the Harnett County Sheriff’s Office, Caddick was playing with children who were attending a birthday party at the lake when he disappeared in the water. He was sent by EMS to Central

PITTSBORO — When Chapin Thomas approaches Top Gun, a wild mustang, the horse keeps his distance. He looks timid and a little unsure, and he keeps his eyes fixed on Thomas. But as Thomas reaches out to touch the side of Top Gun’s face, Top Gun lets him do it, standing still as Thomas gives him words of encouragement. It’s a small gesture, but Top Gun has made progress since arriving at the Thomas family’s ranch in Pittsboro just two weeks ago.

Almanac Today is Friday, July 30, the 211th day of 2010. There are 154 days left in the year. This day in history: On July 30, 1945, during World War II, the Portland class heavy cruiser USS Indianapolis, which had just delivered components for the atomic bomb that would be dropped on Hiroshima, was torpedoed by a Japanese submarine; only 316 out of some 1,200 men survived the sinking and shark-infested waters. In 1792, the French national anthem “La Marseillaise” by Claude Joseph Rouget de Lisle, was first sung in Paris by troops arriving from Marseille. In 1864, during the Civil War, Union forces tried to take Petersburg, Va., by exploding a gunpowder-filled mine under Confederate defense lines; the attack failed. In 1918, poet Joyce Kilmer, a sergeant in the 165th U.S. Infantry Regiment, was killed during the Second Battle of the Marne in World War I. (Kilmer is perhaps best remembered for his poem “Trees.”) In 1932, the Summer Olympic Games opened in Los Angeles. In 1960, the recently founded American Football League saw its first pre-season game, in which the Boston Patriots defeated the host Buffalo Bills 28-7. In 1965, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed into law the Medicare bill, which went into effect the following year. In 1975, former Teamsters union president Jimmy Hoffa disappeared in suburban Detroit; although presumed dead, his remains have never been found.

SANFORD — Lee County and Sanford narcotics teams arrested two area men Thursday after a search of a home turned up drugs and moonshine. The two men, 23-yearold Sergio Telanto Heaggans of 170 Gilchrist Road in Cameron and 55-yearold Neomai Burch of 618 Matthews St. in Sanford, are both facing charges from the investigation. Agents from the Sanford Police Department and Lee County Sheriff’s Office searched Burch’s Matthews Street residence and found eight bags, or about 8 grams, of marijuana and a half-gallon of moonshine liquor. The marijuana has an estimated street value of $80, according to police. Heaggans, who was holding the marijuana, is charged with possession with intent to sell marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. Burch is charged with possession of a non-tax paid liquor.

CAMERON — Moore County investigators are charging a Cameron man with meeting a juvenile girl on the Internet and starting a sexual relationship. Dominique Elliott Ross, a 20-year-old resident at 115 Annie Place in Cameron, confessed Tuesday to having sex with a 13year-old Cameron girl, the Moore County Sheriff’s Office said. Ross talked to the teenage girl in an Internet chat room and then met

her for sex. The two carried out their relationship over a month, said Lt. Bill Mackey of the Sheriff’s Office. Investigators got involved after the girl’s parents told law enforcement Tuesday that they believed their daughter had started a relationship with a man she met online. Within hours, deputies had arrested Ross, Mackey said. “It was pretty evident what was going on,� Mackey said. Ross is charged with two counts of seconddegree kidnapping, two

Education bar has been set too low Greensboro News & Record

N

orth Carolina climbed a big step this week in the federal Race to the Top school funding competition. It’s one of 19 states named a finalist for a share of $3.4 billion. It helped that North Carolina recently adopted national academic standards, one of the keys to winning points from the U.S. Department of Education. The Obama administration is using its funding power to force states to reform their public school systems. Race to the Top was designed to reward innovation and punish business as usual. Top-down reform

is heavy-handed but effective, given that some states have set low expectations for too long. North Carolina was one that needed prodding. Its own K-12 academic standards in the most basic subjects -- English language arts and math -- are “among the worst in the country,” according to a new national survey by the Thomas B. Fordham Institute. The evaluation was jarring, especially for English language arts, which analysts called “one of the most befuddling sets of standards reviewed for this report. It is difficult to describe its organization and purpose, for neither is obvious to the reader.

The standards are jam-packed with jargon and littered with generic skills that appear in multiple strands (often nonacademic skills, such as personal reflection). Glimpses of good content can be found in early reading, vocabulary, analysis of arguments, and even conventions, but in many places the standards are devoid of academic content.” The math standards were better, but not by much. Overall, both areas were graded as a D. In contrast, the new national benchmarks, called the Common Core State Standards, scored a B-plus for English language arts and A-minus for math -- in both cases far superior to the current

North Carolina standards, the report said. North Carolina’s race to the top for additional federal funding should be encouraged. With state budget stagnation, help from Washington is sorely needed. The ultimate goal, however, is academic success for North Carolina children. Although improvements were noted recently on 2010 state end-of-course and end-of-grade tests, the question lingers: Has the bar been set too low? More modest results on the National Assessment of Educational Progress in recent years suggest the bar isn’t far off the ground, and the Fordham survey adds further evidence.

Institutional reform

R

ALEIGH — One of the more disappointing aspects of the rounds of ethics reform that North Carolina legislators have passed in recent years is how little institutional reform was included. Ethics reform — whether it involves cutting out lobbyists-paid meals at swanky steakhouses or increasing criminal penalties for those who willfully violate campaign donor limits — inevitably means some finger-pointing. After all, the series of ethic laws passed since 2006 didn’t come about because all our elected officials were leading squeakyclean lives. So it’s not surprising when some of those targeted by these laws, but accused of no wrongdoing, feel a bit offended. ... But political preservation demanded a response to scandals that rocked the legislature and state government. So, legislators bit their tongue and put a litany new ethics requirements into law. They haven’t felt compelled to do the same for institutional reforms that can’t be characterized as a response to any shortcomings by the elected. Rather, they’re needs created by a changing world and shifting political dynamics. House Speaker Joe Hackney recently renewed talk of limiting the terms of House and Senate leaders after saying that he may restrict himself to three terms in the job. ... Before the mid-1970s, House speakers restricted themselves to a single two-year term. The Senate was overseen by the lieutenant governor, limited to a single four-year term. Then North Carolina voters agreed to allow the governor and lieutenant governor to run for a second term. House speakers decided that they should have longer terms too. A Democratic Senate stripped a Republican lieutenant governor of power, giving the chamber’s leadership to someone elected by the body, the Senate president pro tem. In the 1990s, a more competitive political landscape led to more legislative campaign fund-raising. The money flowed through chamber leaders, making it more difficult than ever for them to walk away from the positions. The obvious result has been a concentration of power. As those changes occurred, the legislature became older, populated by a growing number of retirees. Who else could take a job that paid $13,000 a year in salary and a $104 a day stipend? Meanwhile, the population grew, the economy became more diverse, lawmaking became more complex and took longer and longer each year. Eventually, legislators changed the rules designed to govern their behavior. They never really changed the rules that govern the legislating apparatus. They never considered a full-time legislature with full-time pay. For three decades, they haven’t asked voters what they think about extending legislative terms to four years. Apparently, they fear that voters will see those ideas as cynical power grabs. Ironically, they’re exactly the kind of thing that has nothing to do with anyone’s bad behavior.

This was all secret? W

ASHINGTON — The tens of thousands of classified military documents posted on the Internet Sunday confirm what critics of the war in Afghanistan already knew or suspected: We are wading deeper into a long-running, morally ambiguous conflict that has virtually no chance of ending well. The Obama administration, our NATO allies and the Afghan government responded to the documents — made public by a gadfly organization known as Wikileaks — by saying they tell us nothing new. Which is the problem. We already had plenty of evidence that elements within Pakistan’s intelligence services were giving support and guidance to the Taliban insurgency inside Afghanistan, even though Pakistan is supposed to be our ally in the fight against the terrorists. The newly released documents don’t provide conclusive proof, but they do give a sense of how voluminous the evidence is. “American soldiers on the ground are inundated with accounts of a network of Pakistani assets and collaborators,” according to The New York Times, one of three news organizations — along with the Guardian and Der Spiegel — with which Wikileaks shared the documents in advance. We already knew that U.S. and other coalition forces were inflicting civilian casualties that had the effect of enraging local villagers and often driving them into the enemy camp. The documents merely reveal episodes that were previously unpublicized — an October 2008 incident in which French troops opened fire on a bus near Kabul and wounded eight children, for example, and a tragedy two months later when a U.S. squad riddled another bus with gunfire, killing four passengers and wounding 11 others. We knew that U.S. and allied special forces units were authorized to assassinate senior Taliban or al-Qaeda figures. The leaked documents sketch the activities of the secret “kill or capture” unit named Task Force 373 — and in the process, according to the Guardian, “raise fundamental questions about the legality of the killings ... and also pragmatically about the impact of a tactic which is inherently likely to kill, injure and alienate the innocent bystanders whose support the coalition craves.” The Guardian highlights a 2007 incident in which Task Force 373, operating in a valley near Jalalabad, set out to apprehend or kill a Taliban commander named Qarl Ur-Rahman. As the commandos neared the target, someone pointed a flashlight at them; they called for air support, and an AC-130 gunship strafed the area. Later, they discovered that they had killed seven Afghan National Police officers and wounded four others. A few days later, according to the documents, a Task Force 373 unit fired rockets into a village where they believed a foreign jihadist fighter from Libya was hiding. They killed six Taliban fighters — but also seven civilians, all of them children. One was alive

when allied medics arrived. “The Med TM immediately cleared debris from the mouth and performed CPR,” the incident report states, but after 20 minutes the child died. We knew that the Afghan government was spectacularly corrupt. The documents let us glimpse a bit of that corruption — how commonplace it is and how it destroys public trust. The documents do tell us some things that we didn’t know — for example, that the Taliban apparently used a heat-seeking missile to shoot down a coalition helicopter in 2007, at a time when U.S. officials were poohpoohing the threat to allied aircraft from insurgent forces. Underestimating the enemy is rarely a good idea. And the “Afghan War Diary,” as Wikileaks calls the documents, brings into clear focus the Catch-22 absurdity of trying to wage counterinsurgency warfare in a nation with a 2,000-year tradition of implacable resistance to foreign invaders. As the White House was quick to point out, the documents cover the period before President Obama ordered an escalation and a change of strategy. Gen. Stanley McChrystal, Obama’s chosen commander, tried his best to limit civilian casualties — but soldiers complained, with some justification, that they were not being allowed to fully engage and pursue the enemy. Gen. David Petraeus, put in charge after McChrystal’s dismissal, is under pressure from the ranks to relax the rules of engagement — which would surely lead to more civilians killed, and more grieving relatives transformed into Taliban sympathizers. Overall, though, the most shocking thing about the “War Diary” may be that they fail to shock. The documents illustrate how futile — and tragically wasteful — it is to send more young men and women to fight and die in Afghanistan. But we knew this, didn’t we?

Today’s Prayer I am worn out, Lord, waiting for you to save me; I place my trust in your word. (Psalm 119:81 TEV) PRAYER: Lord, help us give our waiting times to You and trust You even when we are worn out. Amen.

Letters to the Editor There are ways to report loose animals who cause a nuisance To the Editor: This letter is in response to the July 24 letter to the editor written by Kelly Thomas. In this letter, Thomas asks whether or not Sanford has a leash law, because while out running and training for distance runs, she is all too often chased by loose dogs. The various ordinances for the city and county can be found online but yes, Thomas, there is a leash law for the City of Sanford. There is also a City of Sanford and a Lee County ordinance for nuisance animals and specifically there is a short section that states that an animal is considered a nuisance when it disturbs the rights of, threatens the safety of, damages the property of or injures a member of the general public — or interferes with the ordinary use and enjoyment of private or public property. Specifically, it is illegal to maintain an animal that repeatedly chases, snaps at, attacks or otherwise molests pedestrians, bicyclists, motor vehicle passengers or domestic animals. In order for any action to be taken, any loose dog or animal that is considered a nuisance must be reported to Animal Control. The address or location of where the nuisance occurred and a description of the dog or dogs must be known and reported, and a request to have a citation issued must be made with you as the witness. It is my experience as a bicycle rider who has reported loose dogs that an Animal Control officer does visit the home and talk with the owner. In the case of a citation, I can only assume that the owner is served the citation which after a first warning is cause for a fine and after a number of citations it is possible the animal can be confiscated. Unfortunately the problem of loose animals is due more to irresponsible owners than to the animals themselves. But in the end, it is the animal that suffers. JOE WILD Sanford

Examples of good Samaritans in Sanford To the Editor: I would like to tell you about an act of kindness and honesty I recently experienced that reminds us that there are still a lot of good people out there. This past Monday afternoon I lost a church payroll check that I had endorsed ready to deposit at my local bank. I frantically retraced my steps that I had taken during my lunch hour; a stop at a different bank, a quick trip to a local thrift store and even back to my office to see if by some chance I had left it on my desk. I even looked under the seats and throughout my car but had no luck in finding the missing check from my pocketbook. I called the church office to have them stop payment on the check. What to my surprise when soon after my call a couple entered the church office to report that they had found the missing check. They had found it on a side road and when they discovered it was a check from First Baptist Church they went out of their way to return it to the church office. I want to publicly say a big thank you Mr. and Mrs. George Ballon for their honesty and showing that there is still goodness and acts of kindness in this world. Thank God for setting such a wonderful example to us all. I am overcome with gratitude. GRETCHEN GRINDLE Sanford

Benson to host Christian music fest BENSON (MCT) — Timothy Layaou is quick to concede that Christian music festivals are a dime a dozen these days. But the event he’s planning for this Saturday in Benson will be different, Layaou says. Rather than focusing solely on bluegrass, gospel or Christian rock, he wants to bring together all types of Christian music. “Our dream was to break down the barriers between the churches,� Layaou said. “We really just want to get all these diverse groups together. Unity is what the whole festival is about.� One Fest will kick off at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, July 31, and run all day with groups ranging from hardcore metal to hiphop to country. The event takes place at Benson

Chamber Park, 355 J. Lee Road. Layaou expects thousands of people from around the state to attend. Embracing Goodbye, a Southern metal/hardcore/Christian band from Four Oaks, will headline the festival with an evening performance. Layaou, who performs as rapper The Disciple, will also headline. Layaou is a Harnett County native who now lives in the Charlotte area. He’s hoping the Benson festival will be the first in a series he’s organizing around the state and country. But he wanted to have the first festival here in order to give back to his hometown. The festival’s other organizer, David Houston, lives in the area and attended South Johnston High.

“Benson could really use some more entertainment, especially for the youth,� Layaou said. “It’s really about watering your roots.� Furthering that goal, proceeds from the festival will go toward Belly Fish, a skate park and teen nightclub Houston and Layaou are trying to open in the Benson/Four Oaks area. The club will feature live music, paintball and an arcade. “It’s really about giving those teens an alternative rather than partying all night,� Layaou said. He feels the cause is important in part because of his own troubled youth. He says he was involved with drugs and saw a friend murdered before he turned his life around and started rapping about Christianity.

Apex won’t back Three still in hospital after wreck Cary’s effort for a toll-free bypass

APEX (MCT) — The town of Apex joined forces with Cary last week — at least partially — in approving a response to state plans for a stretch of U.S. 64 between Cary and Pittsboro. But Apex officials steered clear of Cary’s latest additions, including a request for a toll-free bypass of a proposed business portion of U.S. 64. The Apex Town Council approved the response at its meeting on Tuesday. Cary leaders passed the statement two weeks ago. Apex and Cary planners had drafted a unified response to the study to express concerns the towns had with the transit plan. The joint response will be sent to state and regional transportation authorities who will spend the fall making more tweaks to the long-term road map for the area. “[The response] adds a great deal of heft to what the citizens in the area — who live in both Cary and Apex — are saying,” Cary Councilwoman Gale Adcock said. “To have both local governments, the chambers [of commerce] and the [Regional Transportation Alliance] agree on the bulk of our recommendations makes a difference.” The N.C. Department of Transportation released the draft study report in May. The report, which takes a 30-year look at growing part of the four-lane, 19-mile stretch, has no allotted timeline or funding in place. At Tuesday’s meeting, Apex planners and engi-

neers recommended approval of a joint response that covers nine points. But they could not suggest aligning with some of Cary’s extra comments. Apex wouldn’t support Cary’s toll-free bypass effort in part because it’s not something the towns or the study can control. Cary wants the bypass on N.C. 540, which relies on the toll as its funding source. “It compromises your credibility when you ask for things you can’t get,” said Apex transportation engineer Russell Dalton. Apex officials said they supported bypass options but that it was too soon to decide on specifics. Cary had also backed a recommendation to rename the current U.S. 64 corridor to U.S. 64 Business/Tryon Road. “When you try and downgrade [a road], you jeopardize your ability for future funding for improvements,” Dalton said. These recommendations will still be presented in the letter — but they’ll be listed separately as suggestions from Cary. The latest draft of the study removed the recommendation for a so-called superstreet at Laura Duncan Drive in Apex. The removal came after intense public outcry. Apex officials applauded the change to a modified roundabout. “It’s much of an improvement over what DOT was trying to cram down our throats,” Apex Mayor Keith Weatherly said. The response letter documents several contentions to the study that were also raised in a petition signed by thousands of Western Wake citizens. Cary and Apex officials want the state to delay proposed plans to implement short-term road improvements along U.S. 64 from U.S. 1 to N.C. 540, at least until the state completes the Western Wake Freeway and opens it to traffic. — The Cary News

SPRING LAKE (MCT) — Three people who were injured Tuesday in a three-vehicle wreck on N.C. 87 in Spring Lake remain hospitalized. Tonja Belinda Scott and Kourtney Lynn Jay were in good condition Thursday at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center, a hospital spokesman said.

“When I first came in the pen, he’d be on the other side facing away from me,” Thomas said. “Now he’ll face me, and I can move his head a little.” Thomas is working with Top Gun as part of Extreme Mustang Makeover, a nationwide competition in which horse trainers have about 100 days to train a wild mustang, culminating with the finals in Murfreesboro, Tenn., in October. Only four trainers from North Carolina were selected to compete. Chapin Thomas, 20; his sister Emily Thomas, 24; and their father Jim

was struck by a Chevrolet truck about 11 a.m. near the Harnett County line, according to a report filed by Trooper N.M. Oxendine. Jay, 19, of Bloom Road in Cameron, and Kristain Nigel Otero Murray, 16, also of Hunter Field in Sanford, were passengers in the Blazer. Murray was taken to UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill and was in good condition Thursday morning, a hospital

spokesman said. The driver of the truck, James Jordan Luna, 31, of the 200 block of Coachman Way in Sanford, was cited for exceeding a safe speed and traveling left of center, the report said. Luna was headed north on N.C. 87 during heavy rain when he lost control of the truck and traveled into the path of Scott’s southbound sport utility vehicle, the report said.

The impact pushed the SUV into Toyota driven by Henry Ray Bowman, 44, of Morris Day Lane in Lillington, the report said. Luna was taken to Womack Army Medical Center and treated for injuries that were not life-threatening, according to Oxendine. Bowman was not injured, according to the report.

Church. To expand the vacation Bible school, the Grace Chapel members went door to door inviting other Fredericton children to join the program. “They only had about five or six kids in their little church, so to be able to get 30 kids to show up was pretty cool,” Murr said. In addition to seeing the local children’s understanding of the Bible evolve, Murr said it was a great experience to see the young Grace Chapel

volunteers grow in the process. “It was great to see them step up and be leaders,” Murr said. “There they really had the opportunity to do that. Not a lot happens out there, so (the children) were so excited.” Grace Chapel Church takes a youth mission trip every year. Belize, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic and Mexico are just a few of the places the group has visited in the

past. Murr said the church is in the early stages of planning next year’s trip but hasn’t decided yet where to go. But as for this year’s trip, Murr counts it as a success in every aspect. “For a group like ours to come in and bring the excitement they did, the kids just had a blast,” Murr said. “We wanted them to see that you can have joy in the lord and that being a Christian can be fun.”

Elijah was the son of David and Melissa Caddick of Sanford and was the middle of three sons by the couple. According to Bridges-Cameron Funeral Home, friends and family members will

gather today at the funeral home at at a local residence to remember Elijah’s life. In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting that memorials be made to the Lee County Chapter

of the Autism Society, at BB&T or with April Brooks of Sanford. An online condolences page has been created at the funeral home’s website, bridgescameronfuneralhome.com.

Thomas, 51, are three of them. The family has been involved with the competition for the past three years, and they usually place in the top 20. “It’s just blossomed and grown into a family affair,” Jim Thomas said. Sponsored by the Mustang Heritage Foundation, Extreme Mustang Makeover exists to demonstrate that mustangs are trainable and worthy of appreciation. Mustangs are wild horses that are protected under federal law, but because of overpopulation, the Bureau of Land Management must remove some of them from their natural habitat. Some of these mustangs are used for the competition, and at the end of the event, they are auctioned off for adoption. Jim Thomas said though many people view mustangs as crazy wild animals that can’t be tamed, with a little patience and hard work, it is possible to train them.

“They don’t even have green grass where they’re from,” Jim Thomas said. “But we get a lot of horses that people have problems with here, so it’s exciting to make that connection.” Since they picked up their mustangs on July 16, the Thomases have started working with them to varying degrees of success. Though Top Gun is learning a little slower than horses Chapin Thomas has worked with in the past, he said he is making progress. But Emily Thomas said she is having some difficulty gaining her mustang’s trust. “They’ve had very little human contact, and what contact they have had has been forced,” Emily Thomas said. Jim Thomas said he’s already passed both of his children in terms of his mustang’s progress, even though he was away on vacation the first week and has had less time to work with the horse. One of the first hurdles

is removing a numbered tag from the horse’s neck. Jim Thomas removed his mustang’s tag after only two sessions. “It’s just a testament to how different these horses can be,” Emily Thomas said. “Just like people, they have different personalities.” At the final competition in October, the trainers will have to demonstrate that their mustang is in good physical condition, they can mount and ride the horse and they can pick up all four of its feet. The mustang will also have to make its way through a number of obstacles. After the trainers have tamed the mustangs and gained their trust, they will begin working on routines. “You’ve got a PA on and 2-3,000 people, and the horse is all by himself in the arena, so that affects them,” Jim Thomas said. Emily Thomas said mustangs do require more work than other horses, but she hopes through the competition people will see that mustangs don’t have to be feared and can be tamed. All three Thomases agree that good communication and confidence are the most important keys to successfully training a mustang. “That horse has to trust you beyond a doubt,” Jim Thomas said. “He feels everything you feel.”

STATE BRIEFS Man charged after 16 guns found in luggage

RALEIGH (AP) — Authorities say a North Carolina man attempted to illegally export 16 guns without getting a license. Court documents unsealed Thursday say Steven Neal Greenoe attempted to travel with the disassembled weapons in checked luggage on a flight Sunday. Greenoe had tickets from Raleigh Durham International Airport to New York and then to Manchester, England. Investigators said Greenoe has made a series of trips to England this year and a series of gun purchases in North Carolina. Documents show that he told investigators that he knew he wasn’t supposed to bring the weapons in his luggage but was doing so to outfit employees working on maritime security contracts abroad.

Expert: Gulf oil unlikely to reach East Coast

RALEIGH (AP) — An expert on marine sciences and coastal circulation says it’s unlikely that oil from the Gulf spill will each the eastern seaboard. North Carolina State University associate professor Roy He said Thursday the chances are low in part because the well is capped. He also says large amounts of oil haven’t been observed in the Loop Current, which could carry oil around Florida and into East Coast waters. He also points to the ongoing dilution and degradation of the oil. A National Center for Atmospheric Research model released at the beginning of June projected that parts of the oil spill could come up the east coast during the summer. Experts said at the time any oil that would reach the east coast would likely arrive in the form of small, weathered tar balls.

Law limits length of monitoring DWI offenders

CHARLOTTE (AP) — North Carolina lawmakers say they are willing to revisit the state’s laws on ankle-monitoring for people convicted for driving while impaired. State law prohibits judges from putting the monitoring devices on serious DWI offenders for more than 60

days. That was the case for Howard Pasour, who was ordered to wear an ankle bracelet after his third impaired driving conviction last year. Pasour was allowed to remove the device in January. Authorities now say he was driving drunk on a two lane road on Sunday when his car crossed the center line and hit an oncoming car, killing 17year-old Laura Fortenberry. Democratic state Sen. John Snow tells the Charlotte Observer he’s willing to consider extending the maximum time the bracelets can be worn.

N.C. Highway Patrol panel discusses how to fix force RALEIGH (AP) — A highprofile panel responsible for ideas on how to restructure North Carolina’s beleaguered Highway Patrol is meeting for the first time. WRAL-TV reported the sixmember panel meets Thursday to begin coming up with ways to change the patrol’s policies and structure. The group also will find a new commander to replace Col. Randy Glover, who is retiring at the end of August after a series of scandals tarnished the Highway Patrol’s reputation. The panel’s members are former state Supreme Court chief justice Burley Mitchell, law professor Julius Chambers, former FBI assistant director Chris Swecker, Mecklenburg County District Attorney Peter Gilchrist, former Appeals Judge Ralph Walker and University of North Carolina law professor Norma Houston.

2 from N.C. die in Interstate 95 wreck in Virginia HANOVER, Va. (AP) — The Virginia State Police say two members of a North Carolina family have died from injuries suffered in a single-vehicle accident on Interstate 95 in Hanover County. Police say 75-year-old Joe L. Thomas and 45-year-old Garry W. Estes died at Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center in Richmond after the Thursday morning accident. Police say the family was traveling in a vehicle driven by 51-year-old Teresa E. Bridges. The car ran off the highway and struck a tree. Police say the family members were traveling from Durham, to a relative’s college graduation in Washington, D.C.

Mother charged in death of girl who was abused SMITHFIELD (AP) — A mother knew her daughter had been abused by a man before she left the 4-year-old in his care while she went to military training, authorities said Thursday. Multiple media outlets reported that Helen Reyes, 27, of Raleigh was charged with negligent child abuse causing serious bodily injury. Her daughter, Teghan Skiba, died July 19 at UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill. She had cuts, lacerations, bite marks, head trauma and sexual assault injuries, authorities said. Reyes “had first-hand knowledge that this type of abuse had occurred

prior to July 5 by Jonathan Richardson,� the arrest warrant states. Reyes left for military training in New Mexico on July 6. Richardson faces first-degree murder charges in the child’s death. The warrant also states that Reyes subjected her daughter to “verbal threats, intimidation, forced consumption of alcohol, severe physical beatings and assault by biting.� The three had been living in a barn behind the home of Richardson’s grandparents, Wade and Helen Creech, near Smithfield. The barn had no bathroom, no run-

SBI director moves to new job By MARTHA WAGGONER Associated Press Writer

RALEIGH — As outside investigators continue looking into the State Bureau of Investigation’s crime lab, the SBI director has moved to a new job within state government, North Carolina’s attorney general said Thursday. SBI Director Robin Pendergraft will become senior deputy attorney general of the newly expanded Medicaid fraud unit, Attorney General Roy Cooper said Thursday. The new SBI director is Greg McLeod, who has worked as Cooper’s legislative liaison. Pendergraft’s Medicaid fraud job is a new position, a spokeswoman for the state Justice Department said. The new salary for Pendergraft, who earns $113,293 a year as SBI director, has not been determined, spokeswoman Noelle Talley said. Defense attorney David Rudolf, who has represented clients who have sued the SBI, called Pendergraft’s move an important change in the agency. But he said he had hoped the new director would be someone from

outside North Carolina with experience running a similar agency. “I don’t think all the blame can or should be laid at Robin’s feet,� he said Thursday. “Having said that, I don’t think she took the steps that were necessary to address the problems when she did become aware of them� Two former assistant directors of the FBI are looking into practices at the state crime lab. Their contract, originally set to expire in June, now goes through the end of the year. They were called in after a ruling last February that a North Carolina man who served almost 17 years in prison for murder was innocent. The state Innocence Commission heard evidence that complete blood test results had been excluded from crime lab reports presented at Greg Taylor’s trial. An SBI agent testified that not all lab results were provided to attorneys. Pendergraft confirmed in February that the practice existed before she took over the SBI. She told The Associ-

McLeod “will build on the SBI successes and continue with the improvements.� Also assigned to the Medicaid fraud unit was Mark Isley, who is one of two SBI agents being sued by Floyd Brown, a mentally retarded man who was held for 14 years at a state mental hospital in Raleigh after being charged with murder. Rudolf is one of Brown’s attorneys. Agents said Brown confessed to the murder, but his attorneys said the confession was beyond his abilities. They said Isley and another agent violated his rights to due process.

Cooper praised Pendergraft’s work, saying she “has been an excellent SBI director and law enforcement leader.� Cooper appointed Pendergraft to run the SBI in 2001.

Panel hits Rangel with 13 charges

WASHINGTON (AP) — House investigators accused veteran New York Rep. Charles Rangel of 13 violations of congressional ethics standards on Thursday, throwing a cloud over his four-decade political career and raising worries for fellow Democrats about the fall elections. The allegations — which include failure to report rental income from vacation property in the Dominican Republic and more than $600,000 in other income on his congressional financial disclosure statements — came as lawyers for Rangel and the House ethics committee worked on a plea deal. One was struck, people familiar with the talks said, but Republicans indicated it was too late. The deal between the lawyers will have little meaning if the committee members don’t approve it, and Republicans said at the proceeding they were insisting on going forward with a trial. The panel is evenly divided between Democrats and Republicans. “Mr. Rangel was given multiple opportunities to settle this matter. Instead, he chose to move forward to the public trial phase,� said Rep. Jo Bonner of Alabama, the senior Republican on the ethics panel Chairman Zoe Lofgren, D-Calif., has made clear that she wants the committee to be unanimous — leaving little chance for agreement without Rangel capitulating on virtually all counts. Many Democrats had urged Rangel to settle the case to avoid the prospect of televised hearings right before November

Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., left, walks with his chief of staff George Henry as he heads for a vote on on the House floor Capitol Hill in Washington Thursday. congressional elections that will determine which party controls Congress next year. However, as Friday’s public airing of the charges drew nearer, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi seem resigned to the case proceeding. “The chips will have to fall where they may politically,� she told reporters. Pursuing ethics cases against House members is “a serious responsibility that we have,� she said. The alleged violations of House standards of conduct also include using congressional letterhead to solicit donations for a center for public service to bear Rangel’s name on the New York campus of the City College of New York. Rangel was also accused of accepting a rent-stabilized property in Manhattan for his campaign office and initially not paying federal taxes on the Dominican Republic property. The ethics panel said Rangel failed to report rental income on his original tax returns for 1998 through 2006 from

the Dominican Republic villa. It also said he violated federal laws in addition to House ethics rules, including the 1989 Ethics Reform Act, Postal Service laws and government service codes. The ethics charges, agreed upon after a twoyear probe, were read in a public session of the Committee on Standards of Official Conduct, as the ethics committee is formally known. Rangel, 80, did not attend. The session set the stage for a committee trial, expected to be held in September. Democrats had hoped to avoid such a public confrontation as November elections approach. “We live at a time when public skepticism about the institutions in our country is very high,� said Rep. Zoe Lofgren, DCalif., the ethics committee chair. She said it had been the panel’s goal “to by our actions rebuild and earn trust by the public and our colleagues.� Republicans have been trying to turn the case into an indictment

of Democratic leadership. Rangel stepped down earlier this year as chairman of the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee, one of the top posts in the House. But Bonner told colleagues, “No one, regardless of their partisan stripes, should rejoice.� “It is the duty of the House to punish its members for disorderly behavior. As such, this is truly a sad day,� the Alabama Republican said. Under the tentative plea deal, it was not immediately clear how many of the 13 charges of ethical violations Rangel agreed to accept. The ethics panel that will judge Rangel’s conduct held its first meeting Thursday. It includes eight members, equally divided between Democrats and Republicans. Thus, for any deal to be accepted it must be approved by at least one Republican. In the frantic hours leading up to the meeting, Rangel’s lawyer, Leslie Kiernan, talked to attorneys for the panel about how to avoid a trial for the 40-year veteran.

Mo. GOP candidates campaign against health care law JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — More than 1 million people are expected to participate in what amounts to the largest-ever public opinion poll on the nation’s new health care law. Missouri on Tuesday will become the first state to the test the popularity of President Barack Obama’s top policy accomplishment with a statewide ballot proposal attempting to reject its core mandate that most Americans have health insurance. The legal effect of Missouri’s measure is questionable, because federal laws generally supersede those in states. But its expected passage could send an ominous political message to Democrats seeking to hang on to their congressional majority in this year’s midterm elections. The Missouri measure, shepherded to the ballot by Republican state lawmakers, is a glaring example of the twisting, troubled politics surrounding the health overhaul. After years of campaigning for health care reform, Democrats finally accomplished it. Yet Democrats are largely silent and it is Republicans who now are highlighting the health care law in their campaigns. From Florida to Washington and numerous states in between, Republican candidates for the U.S. Senate and House — and even for local offices that have little to do with the federal law — are calling for the repeal of what they derisively dub as “Obamacare.�

BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (AP) — A Canadian company whose pipeline leaked hundreds of thousands of gallons of oil into a Michigan river was warned by government regulators in January that its monitoring of corrosion in the pipeline was insufficient. The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration told Enbridge Energy Partners Chairman Terry McGill in a Jan. 21 letter that its corrosion monitoring in Line 6B, the line that ruptured, did not comply with federal regulations. According to the warning, Enbridge was implementing an alternate way of monitoring corrosion in the pipeline, and had detailed to regulators the steps it was taking to track corrosion in the meantime. But the agency warned the company in the letter that it was violating code by not using a sufficient amount of certain chemicals used to protect pipe interiors, not using proper monitoring equipment to determine it those chemicals were working, and not examining its monitoring equipment at least twice a year. “The transition from one technology to another must be implemented in a manner that ensures continued compliance with the regulations,� the agency wrote.

Arizona appeals order blocking law By BOB CHRISTIE

Aasheim. By Thursday morning, two of the year-old bears had been caught and the third could be heard nearby, calling out to its mother. Montana wildlife officials on Thursday identified the man killed in the mauling as Kevin Kammer, 48, of Grand Rapids, Mich. The bear pulled Kammer out his tent and dragged him 25 feet to where his body was found, Aasheim said. The other victims, Deb Freele of London, Ontario, and an unidentified male, have been hospitalized in Cody, Wyo.

Texas man gets death penalty for beheading 3 kids

Associated Press Writer

PHOENIX — Arizona asked an appeals court Thursday to lift a judge’s order blocking most of the state’s immigration law as the city of Phoenix filled with protesters, including about 50 who were arrested for confronting officers in riot gear. Republican Gov. Jan Brewer called U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton’s Wednesday decision halting the law “a bump in the road,� and the state appealed to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco on Thursday. Outside the state Capitol, hundreds of protesters began marching at dawn, gathering in front of the federal courthouse where Bolton issued her ruling on Wednesday. They marched on to the office of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who has made a crackdown on illegal immigration one of his signature issues. At least 32 demonstrators were arrested after blocking the entrance and beating on the large steel doors leading to the Maricopa County jail in downtown Phoenix. Sheriff’s deputies in riot gear opened the doors and waded out into the crowd, hauling off those who didn’t move. Dozens of others were arrested throughout the day, trying to cross a police line, entering closed-off areas or sitting in the street and refusing to leave. Former state Sen. Alfredo Gutierrez, who ran unsuccessfully for governor in 2002, was among them. A photographer for the Arizona Republic also was detained. Marchers chanted “Sheriff Joe, we are here,

Arpaio vowed to go ahead with a crime sweep targeting illegal immigrants. Phoenix police made most the early arrests, before protesters moved to the jail. “My deputies will arrest them and put them in pink underwear,� Arpaio said, referring to one of his odd methods of punishment for prisoners. “Count on it.� Arizona is the nation’s epicenter of illegal immigration, with more than 400,000 undocumented residents. The state’s border with Mexico is awash with smugglers and drugs that funnel narcotics and immigrants throughout the U.S., and supporters of the new law say the influx of illegal migrants drains vast sums of money from hospitals, education and other services. In Tucson, between 50 and 100 people gathered at a downtown street corner

to both protest and defend the new law on Thursday morning. Tucson police spokeswoman Linda Galindo said one man was arrested for threatening people in the other group. In Los Angeles, about 200 protesters invaded a busy intersection west of downtown. Police waited more than three hours before declaring it an unlawful assembly. Most of the demonstrators left peacefully, but about a dozen, linked together with plastic pipes and chains, lay in the street in a circle as an act of civil disobedience. Officer Bruce Borihanh said police were cutting their chains and taking them away to be booked for failure to disperse. The protesters chanted, “These are our streets� during the raucous demonstration. In New York City, about 300 immigrant advocates gathered near the federal courthouse in lower Manhattan. New York City Councilman Jumaane Williams, a first-generation Caribbean-American, told the

crowd: “We won a slight battle in Arizona, we’ve got to continue with the war.� Bolton indicated the government has a good chance at succeeding in its argument that federal immigration law trumps state law. But the key sponsor of Arizona’s law, Republican Rep. Russell Pearce, said the judge was wrong and predicted the state would ultimately win the case. In her temporary injunction, Bolton delayed the most contentious provisions of the law, including a section that required officers to check a person’s immigration status while enforcing other laws. She also barred enforcement of parts requiring immigrants to carry their papers and banned illegal immigrants from soliciting employment in public places — a move aimed at day laborers that congregate in large numbers in parking lots across Arizona. The judge also blocked officers from making warrantless arrests of suspected illegal immigrants.

EDINBURG, Texas (AP) — A jury sentenced a south Texas man to death on Thursday, four days after convicting him of capital murder for beheading his common law wife’s three children in 2003. It is the second death sentence for John Allen Rubio, who was convicted of killing the children all under the age of four — smothering, stabbing and ultimately decapitating them — in a windowless Brownsville apartment. Jurors deliberated for about four hours before returning the sentence. Before entering the sentence, Hidalgo County District Judge Noe Gonzalez asked Rubio if there was anything he would like to say. Gonzalez, who said he had sentenced more people to death than any judge in south Texas, said he recognized that a lot of people went through what Rubio did, citing his abusive and troubled childhood. Jurors on Monday found Rubio guilty on four counts of capital murder — one charge for each child and one for the children together.

Lee Boyd Malvo claims others were to help in attacks

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Convicted DC sniper Lee Boyd Malvo tells actor William Shatner on a cable TV special that he and his partner tried to recruit fellow shooters for their 2002 spree and that his accomplice killed one man for backing out, according to the program set for airing Thursday. In a telephone call from a southwest Virginia prison, Malvo told Shatner two men planned to join in the attacks to make them more deadly but reneged. Malvo said his fellow shooter, John Allen Muhammad, killed one of the men in retaliation. Malvo did not identify them in the interview for a show on the cable channel A&E. Malvo’s revelations came in response to questions about claims by a psychiatrist that the duo had co-conspirators. The psychiatrist, Neil Blumberg, who worked with Malvo before his trial, also said Malvo had confessed to more shootings in addition to the spree that terrorized the Washington region in 2002, when 13 people were hit and 10 of them died. An FBI spokeswoman declined to comment Thursday on the claims. Malvo’s lawyer during his trial, Timothy Sullivan, did not immediately return a call.

Officials trap grizzly, cubs, after mauling at campground COOKE CITY, Mont. (AP) — A mother grizzly and two of her three cubs have been captured after killing a Michigan man and injuring two other people during an overnight rampage through a campground near Yellowstone National Park. The sow, estimated to weigh 300 to 400 pounds, was lured into a trap fashioned from culvert pipe covered by the dead victim’s tent Wednesday evening. The bear tore down the tent again and was caught in the trap, said Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks spokesman Ron

Fur flies with the jokes By CHRISTY LEMIRE AP Movie Critic

Steve Carell, left, and Paul Rudd are shown in a scene from â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dinner for Schmucks.â&#x20AC;?

Nothing spectacular about these â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Schmucksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;

â&#x20AC;&#x153;D

inner for Schmucksâ&#x20AC;? stars Steve Carell and Paul Rudd, and, for better or worse, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all you really need to know about it. Rudd has built a career playing sardonic straight man to a bevy of clowns â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Jason Segel, Seth Rogan, Will Ferrell, and even Steve Carell previously in â&#x20AC;&#x153;The 40 Year Old Virgin.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dinner for Schmucksâ&#x20AC;? is officially a remake of the 1998 French film â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Dinner Game,â&#x20AC;? an adaptation of a Francis Veber play. In execution, it is yet another in the tired line of mismatched-buddy comedies held together not by a script but arid improv. Rudd plays Tim, an up-and-coming financial executive who angling for a promotion by trying to land the account of Swiss multi-millionaire. Part of his induction up the corporation ladder also involves attending a monthly dinner party in which employees invite eccentric strangers who are secretly mocked and unwittingly compete for the title of the nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest idiot. Timâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s moral dilemma over taking part quickly ends when he literally runs into Barry (Carell), an IRS employee and amateur taxidermist with a passion for creating elaborate diorama using dead, stuff mice. Tim invites Barry to the company dinner, unaware of the mayhem Barryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s entrĂŠe will have on

his personal and professional life. Carell is an amusing performer, but his shtick can get mired in a one-note rut. Here, Barry sports a funny hairstyle and a silly grin, a set-up accented by Ruddâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s droll comebacks and one insipid sequence after another. The result is uneven and surprisingly dull â&#x20AC;&#x201D; for me, the only real laugh seeing Ron Livingston, star of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Office Space,â&#x20AC;? cast as a soulless corporate lackey. The fact that Tim uses Barry for his own selfish motives at Barryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expense is distasteful. But, the film waves aside the fact that Barry blindly, gleefully wreaks havoc with Timâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life by convincing both he and his art curator girlfriend Julie (Stephanie Szostak) that the other is carrying on an affair, Tim with a former fling and stalker named Darla (Lucy Punch) and Julie with Kieran (Jemaine Clement), her bizarro performance artist client. Instead, it reserves scorn only for Tim when he

has the temerity to express consternation about his new annoying acquaintance. But, director Jay Roach â&#x20AC;&#x201D; who lacks the talent to carry off such a black comic conceit â&#x20AC;&#x201D; saves the filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest flaw for the titular dinner show. We are supposed to wag our fingers at Timâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boss (Bruce Greenwood) and his rich minions for cruelly cackling at the eveningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;entertainment,â&#x20AC;? which includes a pet psychic, a vulture wrangler, a blind fencer, and even Therman (Zach Galifianakis), Barryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coworker who claims the gift of mind control and taunts Barry about the fact that he is sleeping with Barryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ex-wife. At the same time, however, the movieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comic hook rests on the audienceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shared schadenfreude over these oddballs, Barry included, thereby encouraging us to partake in those same shark-tank antics. Ultimately, the only schmucks at this â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dinnerâ&#x20AC;? are the ones foolhardy enough to fork over money to see it.

ogs and cats, living together ... mass hysteria? Maybe not so much. While these animals were resourceful and well-equipped enemies in the original â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cats & Dogsâ&#x20AC;? from 2001, now theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re forced to band together to fight a common foe in the sequel â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore.â&#x20AC;? As you can tell from the name, this is a spy sendup, specifically of James Bond movies â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the opening titles alone are super clever, an indication of the kind of eye for detail thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in store throughout â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and from there, the jokes fly fast and furious along with the fur. Surprisingly, most of them work in the script from Ron J. Friedman and Steve Bencich. But as directed by Brad Peyton, the sequel is a mix of live action, puppetry and computer animation, and the jumbled look is its chief weakness: The animals are cute and all, but the visual effects that suggest theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking too often look jumpy and fake. You want your talking-animal movies to be realistic, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not too much to ask. And of course, because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a family film coming out this summer, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in 3D. It probably didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to be â&#x20AC;&#x201D; it never needs to be â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but at least the effects are more convincing than they were in, say, a lousy conversion from 2-D like â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Last Airbender.â&#x20AC;? Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re even more effective in the cartoon that precedes â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cats & Dogs,â&#x20AC;? a new Looney Tunes offering thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s old-school in spirit, featuring Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner. You could probably watch those guys go at it for an hour and a half and be totally satisfied. Still, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a delightful idea that cats and dogs not only enjoy a rich interior life while adults are away, but also function as highly trained super spies, complete with elaborate gadgetry. You know youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve wondered this yourself about your own furry friends at home. So you may find your-

REVIEW: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Extra Manâ&#x20AC;? The New York of the film from directors Robert Pulcini and Shari Springer Berman (â&#x20AC;&#x153;American Splendorâ&#x20AC;?) is populated by eccentrics â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a gigolo! a Swiss hunchback! â&#x20AC;&#x201D; whose eccentricities are meant to seem very eccentric. The cloying quirk stifles the film (based on Jonathan Amesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; novel), which is a shame mostly because it does Kevin Kline such a disservice. Louis Ives (Paul Dano) is a sensitive English teacher who fancies himself a 1920s gentleman out of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Great Gatsby.â&#x20AC;? Fired from his teaching job, he seeks renewal in New York. He moves in with Henry Harrison (Kline), a faded aristocrat whose shabby apartment and broken-down Buick donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t â&#x20AC;&#x201D; in his mind â&#x20AC;&#x201D; dull his sophistication a bit. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a character to the hilt, a mix of high and low, deeming Henry James â&#x20AC;&#x153;unreadableâ&#x20AC;? and teaching tricks for urinating on the street. Kline, the best thing in the film, plays Henry with classical stage enunciation, but the character still fails to resonate. Henry isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t much more than a bag of peculiarities, and the same can be said for the movie. With Katie Holmes and John C. Reilly. R for some sexual content. 108 minutes. H 1/2 out of four. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Jake Coyle, AP Entertainment Writer

self laughing the whole way through, even at a take-off on â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Silence of the Lambs,â&#x20AC;? a film thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been parodied ad infinitum. Still, when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the fluffy, white feline Mr. Tinkles strapped up in a cell, wearing that infamous mask â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and voiced again by Sean Hayes â&#x20AC;&#x201D; it adds another layer to the joke thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at once twisted and kinda sweet. This time, the selfstyled uber-villain is Kitty Galore, whose hairless appearance is frightening enough. As voiced with campy menace by the great Bette Midler â&#x20AC;&#x201D; who really should do more of this sort of thing â&#x20AC;&#x201D; sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an over-the-top, diabolical drama queen. But in a good way. Kitty has a plan to enslave dogs around the world and make cats the true rulers. The secret agents of DOG â&#x20AC;&#x201D; led by Lou the beagle (Neil Patrick Harris) and Butch the Anatolian shepherd (Nick Nolte) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; recruit the overeager German shepherd Diggs (James Marsden), whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been

cast off the San Francisco police force for his inability to follow orders, to stop her. But they soon realize they have to team up with the underground cat group MEOWS, led by Catherine (Christina Applegate) and her boss, the tuxedoed Tab Lazenby (Roger Moore, a nice touch). Both teams get help, sort of, from the scatterbrained, fast-talking pigeon Seamus (Katt Williams). Among the people who populate â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cats & Dogs,â&#x20AC;? Chris Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Donnell plays Diggsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; former police partner and Jack McBrayer gets some reliable laughs doing a version of his guileless doofus character â&#x20AC;&#x201D; this time, a magician whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kitty Galoreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unsuspecting human companion, who insists on dressing her in humiliating costumes as part of his act. But for grown-ups, kids, dogs, cats â&#x20AC;&#x201D; whoeverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s watching, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enough here to keep them entertained. HHH OUT OF FOUR

Adult industry jumps on iPhone market By JOEL SCHECTMAN Associated Press Writer

NEW YORK — It’s a maxim of technology: Invent the newest gadget and the porn industry will find a way to cash in. So when Apple Inc. launched the iPhone 4 and its FaceTime videoconference feature, it didn’t take long for adultentertainment companies to develop video-sex chat services and start hiring workers through Craigslist. With more than 3 million of the phones already sold, the adult industry stands to make big money on this new way to reach out and touch someone — even if it puts Apple, which has always taken pains to keep its iPhone apps squeaky clean, in an awkward spot. In at least five cities, Craigslist ads seek models specifically for video sex chat on FaceTime. Many of the ads even offer to throw in a free iPhone 4 for the new employees. FaceTime lets people call another iPhone 4 user and have live video conversations over a WiFi connection through the phone’s camera and screen. In one TV ad, a soldier uses it to get a look at his faraway wife’s ultrasound pictures. The adult industry

And while the technology may be new, the idea is not. Porn providers have always been early adopters. In the 1970s, the demand for explicit videos at home helped VCRs become widespread, and the industry was the first to embrace DVDs, too. Internet porn peddlers were some of the first to make wide use of streaming video and online credit card payments. “The first time someone created a camera there was someone who said, ’Wouldn’t it be good for someone to take off their clothes in front of this camera?”’ said Michael Gartenberg, vice president at Interpret LLC, a media research

company. And for years, cameras mounted on computers have helped connect people for racy online video sessions. But the portability and privacy of a cell phone makes FaceTime a new frontier for the industry. “A phone is such an intimate thing, you usually don’t lend it out or have someone else use it,” said Quentin Boyer, a spokesman for Pink Visual, an adult production company. Boyer said his company began planning for iPhone 4 video services almost as soon as the device hit stores. They should be ready in a matter of weeks. Boyer said the company will offer FaceTime sessions with some of the same women who appear in its videos.

“It has a very personal feel — your mobile phone to hers,” he said. Online exhibitionism is only growing. Take Chatroulette, which randomly connects strangers for video chats. While the service isn’t explicitly sexual, it’s common for users to stumble upon people looking for more than just conversation. So far, most online video sex chat services have let the customer see the performer, but not the other way around. FaceTime may change that. “We are seeing more and more that customers want to be watched as much as they want to watch,” said Dan Hogue, owner of an adult chat company called CamWorld, which is planning FaceTime services. The rise of FaceTime porn puts Apple in an awkward position. Its competitors have products that allow video chat, too — HTC’s Evo 4G phone, for one. But Apple has made a big deal about keeping applications sold in its iTunes store clean. Apple has rejected book apps for featuring sexual content and political satires for their potential to offend. While some rejected apps have been approved after revisions, Apple has kept one strict rule: No porn.

Obama talks race, pop culture on ‘The View’ NEW YORK (AP) — President Barack Obama said Thursday that the racial firestorm that led to the ouster of a black Agriculture Department official was a “phony controversy” generated by the media. He said his administration overreacted by forcing her out. In an interview on ABC’s daytime talk show “The View,” Obama said the forced resignation of Shirley Sherrod shows racial tensions still exist in America. “There are still inequalities out there. There’s still discrimination out there,” Obama said. “But we’ve made progress.” Sherrod was forced to resign after a conservative website posted an edited video of her speaking about race. Sherrod said the video took her remarks out of context. When her full remarks were discovered, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack apologized and offered Sherrod a new job at the department. Obama pinned much of the blame for the incident on a media culture that he said seeks out conflict and doesn’t always get the facts right. But he added, “A lot of people overreacted, including people in my administration.” The Sherrod incident added another wrinkle to an administration already burdened by the slow pace of the economic recovery, wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the Gulf oil spill. While acknowledging that the country has gone through a tough stretch since he took office, Obama said he remains optimistic about the direction the U.S. is headed.

“What has been satisfying is just seeing how resilient the American people are,” he said. Obama’s interview with “The View” was the first appearance on a daytime talk show by a sitting president.

Lisa Kudrow prescribes laughter in Web series NEW YORK (AP) — Former “Friends” star Lisa Kudrow is making herself laugh. She’s reading tweets written by her character, Fiona Wallice, on the online show “Web Therapy.” “Web Therapy” is available on Hulu, lstudio.com and for purchase on iTunes. Showtime has said it will air at least 10 episodes starting next year, with new material shot for TV. Kudrow’s character is a selfKudrow absorbed therapist who has decided that 3minute sessions by webcam are sufficient to diagnose a patient and dole out advice. The conversation often veers off-topic and onto Wallice. Each episode plays out like viewers are looking at an actual computer screen with Kudrow and a co-star interacting in double boxes over web chat.

Moore wants to bring back downtown theaters

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) — Michigan-based documentary filmmaker Michael Moore wants to bring back the single-screen movie theaters that used to be the pillars of city business districts. Moore has a plan to refurbish or prop up downtown movie houses in his home state, and eventually nationwide. Such efforts have been made before. But Moore’s approach has a unique twist, modeled on the successful resurrection of the State Theatre in Traverse City, Mich. Moore Moore says the way to rescue downtown movie houses is to run them as nonprofits staffed mostly with volunteers. Moore plans to provide grants and training to theater operators.

As many as 6,600 graves mixed up By ANNE FLAHERTY Associated Press Writer

Headstone markers are seen at Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, Va., Thursday The former superintendent of the cemetery says he accepts “full responsibility” for the mix-up of graves at the famous military burial ground. unmarked graves were discovered. Sen. Claire McCaskill, chairwoman of an oversight panel on the Senate Homeland Security and Government Reform Committee, said Thursday that her investigation has revealed far higher estimates of the number of graves affected. McCaskill, a Missouri Democrat, said she believes that between 4,900 and 6,600 graves may be unmarked or mislabeled on cemetery maps. Kathryn Condon, who was hired to fix the cemetery’s problems, testified that the Army was still trying to determine exactly how many burial sites could be affected. But, she said, “I am confident there are probably other map errors” beyond the 211 sites initially identified by Army investigators. Metzler said an in-

spector general finding that more than 100 graves lacked a headstone or burial card was not entirely accurate and that it was mostly internal working maps used by cemetery employees that were mislabeled. Metzler insisted that discrepancies on those maps wouldn’t necessarily affect operations. He also said any problems that came up over the years were quickly fixed and suggested he was surprised by the findings of the Army’s Inspector General. His testimony angered and confused lawmakers. “The notion that you would come in here and act like you didn’t know about it until a month ago is offensive. You did know about it, and you did nothing,” McCaskill said. A visibly frustrated Sen. Scott Brown abrupt-

ly ended his questioning. “I’d have a lot of fun with you in a deposition because I don’t think we’re getting straight talk here,” said Brown, R-Mass. Higginbotham testified in general about his tenure at the cemetery but left the hearing early after asserting his Fifth Amendment right not to respond to many of the lawmakers’ more pointed questions. As deputy superintendent who ran dayto-day operations at the cemetery, Higginbotham is accused of directly contributing to the chaos. While Army officials have described Metzler as an ineffective manager who turned a blind eye to the cemetery’s problems, investigators accuse Higginbotham of botching contracts and creating an “unhealthy organizational climate” for employees.

Body of 2nd Navy sailor recovered in Afghanistan KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — The discovery of the body of a second U.S. sailor who vanished in Afghanistan last week only deepened the mystery of the men’s disappearance nearly 60 miles from their base in a dangerous area controlled by the Taliban. An investigation is under way, but with both sailors dead, U.S. authorities remained at a loss Thursday to explain what two junior enlisted men in noncombat jobs were doing driving alone in Logar province, where much of the countryside is not under government control. “This is like a puzzle,” said Abdul Wali, deputy head of the governing council in Logar. Petty Officer 2nd Class Justin McNeley — father of two boys aged 5 and 9 — from Kingman, Arizona, and Petty Officer 3rd Class Jarod Newlove, 25, from the Seattle area, disappeared in the province July 23. McNeley’s body was recovered there Sunday and Newlove’s body was pulled from a river Wednesday evening, Afghan officials said. The U.S. Navy confirmed Newlove death on Thursday.

Raging Russian fires destroy homes, people flee MOSCOW (AP) — Raging forest fires encircled a southern Russian city and tore through provincial villages Thursday, forcing mass evacuations as Moscow suffered through a record, weeks-long heat wave and smog cloud caused by peat-bog fires. Some 212,506 acres (86,000 hectares) were burning nationwide, and flames all but encircled the city of Voronezh, 300 miles southeast of Moscow. Forest fires on Moscow’s outskirts reached the city’s western fringe, in the Krylatskoye district, but were extinguished toward nightfall. State television pictures showed the evacuation by ambulance of a Voronezh city hospital. Channel One said more than 800 patients were transferred to other facili-

ARLINGTON NATIONAL CEMETERY

WASHINGTON — Estimates of the number of graves that might be affected by mix-ups at Arlington National Cemetery grew from hundreds to as many as 6,600 on Thursday, as the cemetery’s former superintendent blamed his staff and a lack of resources for the scandal that forced his ouster. John Metzler, who ran the historic military burial ground for 19 years, said he accepts “full responsibility” for the problems. But he also denied some of the findings by Army investigators and suggested cemetery employees and poor technology were to blame for remains that may have been misidentified or misplaced. He said the system used to track grave sites relied mostly on a complicated paper trail vulnerable to error. “Personally it is very painful for me that our team at Arlington did not perform all aspects of its mission to the high standard required,” he told a Senate panel. He was subpoenaed to testify. Metzler and his deputy, Thurman Higginbotham, were forced to retire after Army investigators found that as many as 211 graves were unmarked or misidentified. The report by the Army Inspector General’s office accused Metzler of repeatedly failing to ensure burials were being done properly and of failing to respond after

The Interfax news agency reported that the 340 homes were destroyed in a village near Nizhny Novgorod, around 250 miles east of Moscow. There were no reports of casualties.

Settlers seize home in Jerusalem’s Muslim Quarter JERUSALEM (AP) — Jewish settlers on Thursday took over a building in the Muslim Quarter of Jerusalem’s Old City and evicted dozens of Palestinian tenants, residents and police said, prompting a sharp protest by the top regional U.N. envoy. The takeover comes at a time when the U.S. is struggling to restart Israeli-Palestinian talks. The international community, led by the U.S., has urged Israel to refrain from any steps that could raise tensions in east Jerusalem, including evictions and house demolitions. East Jerusalem’s Old City was captured by Israel in the 1967 Mideast War. The Palestinians claim the eastern half of the city for their capital. Over the years, about 2,000 Israeli settlers have moved into buildings Jews bought in established Arab sections of east Jerusalem, including the Old City, to make it harder to partition the city.

Relatives search for bodies at Pakistan air crash ISLAMABAD (AP) — Relatives desperate to find the bodies of loved ones joined emergency teams Thursday at the scene of Pakistan’s worst-ever plane crash, but recovery work was badly hampered by rain and thick mud on the slippery hills. The Airbus A321 operated by local carrier Airblue crashed into hills overlooking the capital, Islamabad, during monsoon storms, killing all 152 people on board. Wreckage was strewn over about a third of a square mile (one-square kilometer) of the forested slopes. The Civil Aviation Authority said the plane had been ordered to take an alternative approach to the runway, but had veered off course. Finding out why will be a key task of the investigation team, said Riazul Haq, director general of the agency.

ORIOLES HIRE SHOWALTER AS MANAGER BALTIMORE (AP) — Buck Showalter was hired to manage the Baltimore Orioles on Thursday, his latest rebuilding project in a major league career full of them. Showalter’s first game will be Tuesday night at Camden Yards against the Los Angeles Angels. Baltimore had the worst record in the majors at 31-70 going into Thursday night against Kansas City and is headed toward its 13th straight losing season. The Orioles fired manager Dave Trembley on June 4 and replaced him on an interim basis with Juan Samuel. “Buck Showalter’s proven track record makes him the right choice for manager of the Orioles,” president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail said in a statement.

NCAA TEBOW, BRONCOS AGREE TO $33M CONTRACT

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Tim Tebow has agreed to a contract with the Denver Broncos. The two-time national champion from Florida and 25th pick in the NFL draft missed the first three workouts for rookies and selected veterans while his agent, Jimmy Sexton, and general manager Brian Xanders hammered out a deal. ESPN has reported the deal is worth $33 million over five years with $8.7 million guaranteed. Tebow is expected to practice Friday morning, the final session before training camp begins Sunday with a full squad. The signing of Tebow leaves top pick Demaryius Thomas, a wide receiver out of Georgia Tech, as the only unsigned member of Denver’s draft class.

SPARTANBURG, S.C. — If Jimmy Clausen indeed becomes Carolina’s franchise quarterback, it’ll be after overcoming a humble beginning to his professional career. Three months after his draft weekend snub, a nervous Clausen fumbled a couple of snaps early in his first workout of training camp

B

with the Panthers on Thursday, before laboring in the intense heat in his new role: third-stringer. It was a long way from all the high school hype, the brashness at Notre Dame and the declaration after the Panthers finally ended his two-day draft wait with the 48th selection that his goal was to be the starter from day one. “That’s how you have to think. When you go out to practice you want to do as much as you can to

be the starting quarterback,” Clausen said. “At the end of the day, I can control only what I can control and the coaches are going to make the decisions, who’s going to play and who’s not going to play.” It was the typical measured response Clausen has made routine since his first NFL minicamp in April. He’s impressed coaches with his lengthy film sessions and won

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — There’s a new Roy in town — and he’s an ace, too. Three-time All-Star Roy Oswalt gave his OK to a trade from Houston to Philadelphia on Thursday, becoming the latest star pitcher to join the hard-charging Phillies. After getting Roy Halladay in the offseason, the two-time defending NL champions got Oswalt and a sizable amount of cash from the Oswalt Astros for pitcher J.A. Happ and two speedy prospects, outfielder Anthony Gose and shortstop Jonathan Villar. Houston then traded Gose to Toronto. Oswalt joins a rotation that includes Halladay, acquired from Toronto in the offseason, and Cole Hamels, the 2008 World Series MVP. Oswalt is scheduled to make his debut for the Phillies on Friday night, starting at Washington. “We’re trying to do what we can to get back to the World Series and win it,” Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said. “To have Roy Oswalt, Roy Halladay and additionally Cole Hamels, Joe Blanton and Kyle Kendrick, we stack ourselves up as one of the best rotations in baseball.” This was the second straight year the Phillies made a major trade for a pitcher in the days leading up to the July 31 deadline. Last season, they got Cliff Lee and he boosted them to another NL pennant — Lee was then sent to Seattle in a separate deal on the same day the Phillies acquired Halladay. “I’m excited,” Halladay said. “It says a lot that this team is dedicated to winning.”

Jay Minter shot a 42 in nine holes to win the 13--14-year-old division while Matthew Honeycutt was second with a 44. Stephanie Dunne won the 12-14 age group. The two winners of the club’s annual membership giveaway (one from the course and one from the Exchange Club of Lee County) were Madison Britt and R.J. Taylor.

SPORTS SCENE

BOYS & GIRLS CLUB

Lee’s Boys & Girls Club takes part in Ripken camp From Staff Reports SANFORD — One chaperone and three club members from the Boys & Girls Club of Sanford/Lee County had a chance to attend the four-day baseball camp in Aberdeen,

Md., sponsored by the Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation. Those that attended the camp were Timir TC Cox (Chaperone and B&GC Middle School Director), Cortrell Woodard, 13, Deshun Alston,13, and D’Marco Thomason,

10. Out of 30 eligible clubs to attend the camp, only eight partnerships were able to attend and the Boys & Girls Club of Sanford/Lee County was chosen. The Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation is a nonprofit organization, working throughout the country with Boys & Girls Clubs, P.A.L. centers, inner-city schools, and other organizations serving and helping America’s youth to build character and teach critical life lessons to young people residing in America’s most distressed communities through baseball and softball themed programs. Led by former Major League Baseball great Cal Ripken Jr., and his borther and former bigleaguer Billy Ripken, the Cal Ripke, Sr. Foundation is reaching out to children who might otherwise never have access to positive mentors or team sports and bringing critical life lessons to those in desperate need of a helping hand and chance

to succeed in life. The camp consisted of baseball drills during the day and life lessons, sportsmanship training, ropes courses, responsibility and characterbuilding during the evening and free time. The Ripken Staff will be traveling to Sanford for the Inaugural Cal Ripken Sr. Quickball Fun Day at the OT Sloan Boys & Girls Club on 10:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. on Friday. The local Club is expecting 200 other Club members from across the state at this event. N.C. Attorney General Roy Cooper, an avid baseball fan and supporter of the Ripken program, will be in attendance with members of the NC SBI staff, who will play ball with the children. Quickball is a national enhancement program that was introduced in 1999 and is the official stepping stone to Ripken Baseball. The main purpose of Quickball is to make baseball more fun and easier to play regardless of skill level.

Sports T.O. misses flight, but gets number

GEORGETOWN, Ky. (AP) — Terrell Owens missed his flight but got his number. When he finally makes it to town — a little late — he’ll be wearing his familiar 81. The Cincinnati Bengals’ latest addition missed his overnight flight from the West Coast and had to take a later one on Thursday, delaying his debut at training camp. The Bengals had planned on him arriving early in the day, taking his physical and signing his one-year contract while the rest of the team held its first workout. They scheduled an introductory news conference after the morning practice. The news conference had to be rescheduled for after the evening session. Coach Marvin Lewis wasn’t sure whether the 36-year-old receiver would arrive in time to work out. On his Twitter account, Owens posted a note Wednesday night saying he was headed to see a movie. He didn’t explain why he missed his flight on Thursday, but confirmed that his news conference had to be rescheduled. “My Press conf about my “Decision” 2 take my talents 2 Cincy will b held 2nite after 7pm practice!!” he tweeted, playing off LeBron James’ one-hour television show announcing his decision to leave Cleveland.

Nats topple Braves WASHINGTON (AP) — Scott Olsen returned from the disabled list to win his first appearance in more than two months, Adam Dunn and Ian Desmond each homered and doubled, and the last-place Washington Nationals beat NL East-leading Atlanta. Olsen (3-2) gave up three runs — two earned — and five hits in six innings before a thunderstorm caused a 1 1/2-hour delay. The Nationals made room on the roster for the left-hander by putting rookie sensation Stephen Strasburg on the DL for the first time. Marlins 5, Giants 0 SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Anibal Sanchez pitched a one-hitter for his first shutout since a no-hitter in September 2006, and Jorge Cantu played

his final game for Florida in the Marlins’ 5-0 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Thursday. Sanchez (8-6) retired his first 13 batters and matched a career-high with eight strikeouts. Giants rookie Buster Posey had his hitting streak snapped at 21 games, one shy of tying Hall of Famer Willie McCovey’s San Francisco rookie record, set in 1959.

Compton shares lead in PGA Tour event

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. (AP) — Double heart transplant recipient Erik Compton shot a 7-under 63 in the inaugural Greenbrier Classic to share the first-round lead with rookie Matt Every. Playing on a sponsor’s exemption, Compton made nine birdies, seven over a nine-hole stretch on the Old White course Thursday. The 30-year-old Compton has made four cuts in six starts this season. He was diagnosed at age 9 with a disease that inflames the heart and leaves it unable to pump as hard as it needs to. His first transplant came three years later and his second one came in 2008. George McNeill, Pat Perez and Jeff Overton opened with 64s.

Cantu got two hits, scored twice and made an error in the Marlins’ 5-0 win at San Francisco. The trade was completed right after the game ended. Cantu hit .262 with 10 home runs and 54 RBIs for Florida. The Rangers already have All-Star Michael Young at third base — Cantu said in recent days he was prepared to switch back to his former spot at first base, a position of need for the Rangers.

Roush transferred to Mayo Clinic ROCHESTER, Minn. (AP) — NASCAR team owner Jack Roush has been transferred to the Mayo Clinic following surgery on facial injuries he sustained in a plane crash in Wisconsin. Roush Fenway Racing said in a statement Thursday that Roush was taken to the Mayo Clinic on Wednesday and is in serious but stable condition. The team does not say what kind of injuries he has from the accident Tuesday night. Roush’s passenger, friend Brenda Stricklin, was treated and released from a Wisconsin hospital Wednesday afternoon. Roush was attending the Experimental Aircraft Association’s annual AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wis. The aviation buff also survived a crash in 2002. The EAA said a Beechcraft Premier business jet registered to Roush Fenway Racing, LLC was involved in a landing accident at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh around 6:15 p.m. Tuesday.

SOUTHPORT, England (AP) — Yani Tseng shot a 4-under 68 in the opening round at Royal Birkdale on Thursday, and is tied for the lead as she pursues her third major title. The rising star from Taiwan shot a bogey-free round that included a birdie and an eagle on the two finishing holes, putting her in a tie for the lead with Australian Katherine Hull. “I played really, really solid. I hit all greens but one today and I putted pretty well,” said Tseng, who already has won the Kraft Nabisco Championship this season to go with the LPGA Championship she won in 2008. “The last two par-fives were just like long par-fours with the wind, so I stayed relaxed and tried to make birdies,” Tseng said. “It was pretty good Hull was among the last

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because Shanahan planned to address the matter after practice, which was scheduled to be held late in the afternoon.

The trade was announced a short time later. Tejada is hitting .269 with seven homers and 39 RBIs. The former AL MVP can play shortstop and third base. He has appeared in 93 games in the field this season, all at third base, after having played shortstop in each of his previous 1,846 games.

Mission Continued from Page 1B

my life forever. I’ve decided to take my talents to Sao Paulo, Brazil, and join the North Carolina All-Stars. The North Carolina All-Stars, led by both Joel and Tim, are leaving today for their mission trip to Brazil to use the game of basketball to help bring kids closer to God. For the next nine days, the AllStars will be doing dribbling clinics for students at various Brazilian schools each morning. In between these clinics, there will be a message delivered by different members of the team to the kids about what it means to have God in their lives. At night, the All-Stars will play different semipro Brazilian teams. The purpose of the trip is to help young people grow closer to God and understand what it means to have him play such a pivotal role in your life. The All-Stars are a group of men and women from Sanford coming together, egos aside, to help accomplish that mission. For me, this trip will be the first time that I’ve played competitive basketball since playing in a recreation league in 2004. Until making my decision to come out of retirement and join the All-Stars, I haven’t even stepped onto a basketball court. But I’m back. Bum shoulder and all. And while my game isn’t as fine-

tuned as it should be, I’m still excited about this rare opportunity that will probably never come my way again. Not only am I amped up about getting back onto the hardwood, I’m also very excited about the people I’m going with and the things we’re going to be doing. My suitcase is all packed up with my uniform, different team T-shirts (some of which have my name on them to prove that I am, in fact, on the team), team warm-ups and other equipment. My white/Atlantic Blue 1996 Air Penny’s are all laced up and ready to go as well. My game? Well, that never left, despite the time away from the court. The Sarda Spectacular has fully evolved and is ready to be unleashed. The challenges and the call-outs on the PODCast have been mainly to get my teammates motivated and excited about this once-in-a-lifetime trip. After seeing the All-Stars put on a dribbling clinic on Wednesday night at the Grace Christian gymnasium, I can honestly say that it worked. Everybody seems ready to go on this mission. More importantly, though, everyone seems ready to accomplish this mission. Ryan Sarda is a sportswriter for The Herald. Reach him at (919) 718-1223 or at sarda@sanfordherald.com.

over many of his teammates with his work ethic. “He’s quiet. He’s kept his mouth shut and has just been working hard,” said left tackle Jordan Gross, who added Clausen sent him a couple of text messages over the summer. “I think that’s the right way to do it as a quarterback or any player. “I think he’s got great potential. I know Matt (Moore) is our starter right now and that’s who I support. But anybody that’s got a Panthers helmet on, I want them to do their best. I’d love for him to succeed beyond anybody’s expectations. That would just make us better.” A day after signing a four-year contract that could be worth up to $6.3 million, Clausen blamed “a little prepractice jitters” for bobbling a couple of snaps in a walkthrough before Thursday’s first practice. He then settled in mostly as the third-string QB behind Moore and Hunter Cantwell, although Clausen did take some snaps with the second unit and appeared to be sharp with his throws. The Californian acknowl-

edged that despite being warned about the South Carolina humidity, it “caught me off guard a little bit.” “I feel like I’m in a good position right now playing in an offense that I did at Notre Dame for three years,” Clausen said. “At the same time you’ve got to get used of the speed. You’ve got to get used to different guys running routes. There’s a lot of timing that goes into everything, so that’s a big thing that I’m going to be working on in camp.” The 6-foot-2 Clausen threw 60 touchdown passes and 27 interceptions with the Fighting Irish, but was just 16-18 as a starter, hardly what fans expected after the high school phenom arrived in a limousine to announce his college choice. Questions about his attitude caused him to tumble in the draft after he left school a year early. “I really don’t think about it too often, but I’m sure it’ll be in the back of my head,” Clausen said. “That’s one of the things that makes me strive to be the best quarterback I can be. Go out each and every day and work as hard as I can and try to be perfect.” While the Panthers believe Clausen could

eventually becoming their entrenched starter, Moore is clearly No. 1 at the start of camp after Jake Delhomme’s release. Clausen’s immediate goal is to pass Cantwell, who spent most of his rookie season on the practice squad as Moore’s backup. “Him and I had a great conversation today talking about some little things with the offense,” said Moore, who has started only eight NFL games. “I guess I’m kind of a mentor. I don’t see myself as one but I guess I play that role.” Coach John Fox provided little insight when asked what Clausen needs to work on, saying only that he needs practice time to get more comfortable. Clausen is expected to see considerable playing time in the preseason. The exhibition opener is Aug. 12 at Baltimore. Until then, Clausen plans to stay quiet, learn and say nothing inflammatory. “Whenever you get your reps, you have to go out there and make plays,” Clausen said. “I think that’s the biggest thing. When your name gets called, whether it’s one play or five plays, it doesn’t really matter. You have to produce.”

DEAR ABBY

BRIDGE HAND

Solitary man reaches out, but now is lonely in a crowd

HOROSCOPES Universal Press Syndicate

Happy Birthday: It’s all about learning, experiencing and doing this year. A new way of looking at old ideas and concepts will keep you in the game. Travel will lead to knowledge and experience, furthering your goals. Dealing with friends, neighbors and relatives will be stressful if you don’t learn to say no. Your numbers are 3, 7, 17, 21, 30, 36, 42 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Keep your secrets to yourself. Take on responsibilities so everyone can see you are serious about your work. Socialize in the evening and you will come across someone with an interesting take on the future. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Love and romance are highlighted. Finish your work quickly and prepare to spend time with the one you love. If single, attend events where you can meet people and find love. Short trips will be frustrating due to delays but you will engage in conversations with interesting people. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Just when you think you are home free, you’ll face someone unhappy with the way you have done things. Try to avoid any sort of confrontation. The best alternative is to volunteer to help an organization you believe in. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t let the little things bother you so much and you will discover there is plenty to be thankful for and to enjoy. If you strive to be positive, you will beat the odds and find comfort in your home, family and relationships. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You need to get away either mentally or physically. If you can take a mini vacation, do so. If not, lose yourself in a good book or a hobby. A new concept or pastime will introduce you to different philosophies or lifestyles. It’s never too late to make changes. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.

WORD JUMBLE

22): This can turn into a fabulous weekend if you put everything aside and focus on your love life. Don’t let financial worries stop you from enjoying the comfort you get from spending time with family. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You’ll be back and forth and back again when it comes to making a personal or professional decision. Before you drive yourself and everyone around you crazy, ask someone you trust for advice. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Put everything aside and focus on love and self-improvement. This is a great time to evaluate your personal life. Once you sort out how you can be more effective as a companion, friend and lover, the other uncertainties will clear up. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Keep your emotional feelings out of any conversation you get into, especially if it involves friends, relatives or neighbors. Keep things light and stand true to your promises. Problems while traveling can be expected. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Deal with paperwork and personal business involving settlements, legalities, investments or health issues rather than trying to get along with someone looking for a fight. Travel and communication will only lead to frustration and differences. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Look back and you will see what needs to be done in the future. Past partners and financial mistakes you have made will come to mind, reminding you not to repeat what you did the last time. A residential move will help you change your life. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Make a professional move. Interviews, sending out your resume and exploring ways to offer your skills will all bring positive results. A relationship you have with someone will improve if you listen to the ideas, plans and intentions being suggested.

DEAR ABBY: I’m a gay 44-yearold man with self-esteem problems. I have never seen myself as worthy of affection, and I don’t consider myself attractive. I have never been in a relationship, and no one outside of my family has ever said “I love you” to me. I have recently tried to come out of my shell. As a result, the network of people I associate with has tripled -- and I think that has compounded my problem. Aside from parties where everyone is invited, I never hear from any of these people. I have only a couple of good friends, people I can talk to. I have leaned on my friends to try to help me with my problem. But I’m afraid if I keep unloading on them it’ll wear them down, and I don’t want to burden them. I wish I didn’t feel so worthless. I know part of my problem is the fact that I am unemployed and worried about money. But this is who I have been my whole life. How do I break the cycle and start feeling good about myself? I’m tired of being lonely all the time. — LONELY IN CHICAGO DEAR LONELY: One way to stop feeling lonely is to give yourself less time to feel that way. Because you are unemployed and have the time, volunteer some of it. Find a nonprofit that helps homeless gay youth or senior citizens — or, because the political scene is heating up, the party of your choice. And while you’re at it, contact a gay and lesbian center and ask what kind of counseling services it offers, because your problems predate your unemployment. There is help available in your city.

later shuttle. What do I do? Tell Phil I don’t want to walk with him? Walk faster? Go in later? — UNCOMFORTABLE IN SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO

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

Once you understand why you feel “unworthy of affection” you’ll be able to improve your self-esteem. There are better days ahead. o DEAR ABBY: My office was relocated recently, a bit farther away from home than the old one. My new commute involves riding public transportation and then a shared shuttle van. One of my co-workers, “Phil,” rides the same shuttle. He always waits for me to get off the shuttle so he can walk with me to the office. He seems nice enough and well-meaning, but my mornings are my time to prepare myself for the day. He also occasionally touches my arm, which makes me uncomfortable. He also talks about personal things I would rather not hear about. I would prefer to walk without him, but there is no other way to get to the office. I have debated being 10 minutes late to work each day, but then I would need to stay 10 minutes later and it would be much harder for me to catch the

DEAR UNCOMFORTABLE: Tell Phil that as you walk to the office you meditate — that it helps “center” you in preparing for the workday. Explain that when he talks to you or touches you it’s distracting, so you would prefer that he go on ahead. It’s the truth, and he should accommodate you. o DEAR ABBY: I recently had a child and would like to join a church for the community, moral messages and the music. I grew up going to one and got a lot out of it. However, exploration throughout my 20s made me realize that I didn’t believe what was being taught. I tried hard to accept the doctrines, but truthfully, I doubt I ever will. Would it be dishonest to start attending again? — NEW MOM IN ARKANSAS DEAR NEW MOM: Many people consider themselves to be more “spiritual” than “religious.” And I’m willing to bet that in many congregations there is a range in the intensity of belief among the attendees. I encourage you to select a denomination with which you feel most comfortable. Some — like the Unitarian Universalist faith (www. uua.org) — have no dogma or creed and support their members in following their own spiritual paths.

Police: Cheeseburger found in SC woman’s gas tank

Prodigal gun: Man reunited with stolen revolver

ROCK HILL, S.C. (AP) -- A South Carolina woman found out fast food won’t make your car go fast. The Herald of Rock Hill reported Thursday a 30-year-old woman made a complaint to police after she took her car to a Rock Hill mechanic last week because it would suddenly stop running. Police said a mechanic found a cheeseburger and pickle inside the car’s gas tank. The woman told officers she had no idea how it happened. Investigators said the damage cost about $1,000 to repair.

TERRELL, Texas (AP) -- A rural East Texas man has been reunited with his long-lost gun more than two decades after it was stolen. According to a Kaufman County Sheriff’s Office statement, burglars took Bruce Garner’s H&R nine-shot revolver from the Terrell man’s home soon after he moved there in June 1989. Although the thieves were never caught, deputies located the stolen firearm at a pawn shop. Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Pat Laney said Garner and his gun were reunited at an upbeat property hearing Thursday morning. The 59-year-old leathersmith says “it’s a hoot” to have his favorite dispatch gun back again. “I was astounded.”

500-pound alligator rounded up in SC lagoon HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (AP) — As gators go, the one found in a South Carolina lagoon was downright gargantuan. The Island Packet of Hilton Head reported that an 11-foot-long, 500 pound alligator was removed from a lagoon on the resort island on Wednesday. It took three gator wrestlers from the Critter Management company and a truck to pull the gator from the lagoon near a church. A worker said the gator was so big, it was a like a frog in a puddle. Critter Management owner Joe Maffo said most encounters with gators occur during the spring and early summer. He said the gator probably just found a lagoon where he felt comfortable.

Fla. deputy shoots himself in leg during training CRESTVIEW, Fla. (AP) -- An Okaloosa Sheriff’s deputy is on leave after shooting himself in the leg during a training exercise at a firing range. Miguel Rojas accidentally hit himself Tuesday when deputies were forced to use their lessdominant hand to shoot. The 35-year-old caught his finger in the trigger guard while trying to holster his gun. The bullet broke a small bone in Rojas’ leg, but the injury didn’t require surgery. The department’s chief deputy said Rojas is in good spirits, but won’t get any relief from his co-workers for a while. He is an eight-year sheriff’s department veteran and a member of its Special Response Team. See answer, page 2A

Pray for courage and forgiveness Q: I’ve hurt a lot of people in my life, especially my ex-wives and our children. I feel bad about it now, and I guess I ought to tell them I’m sorry, but for some reason I just can’t bring myself to do it. Please pray I’ll do the right thing. -- D.C. A: Often, the right thing to do in life isn’t necessarily the easy thing to do -- and this is true in your situation. Yes, it would be easier just to do nothing -- but it would be wrong, and your feelings of failure and guilt would hang over you the rest of your life. But don’t just think of yourself; think especially of those you’ve hurt. Your letter doesn’t go into detail, but how would you feel if you were a child whose father had walked out on him? How would you feel if you were a wife and mother who only knew heartache and betrayal, and finally abandonment, from her husband? I don’t know if these describe you exactly, but from what you say, your legacy hasn’t been any better. What should you do? My prayer is that you will first of all turn to Jesus Christ and commit your life to Him. You need God’s forgiveness, and You need His strength to live the way you should. The Bible’s promise is for you: “Everyone who believes in him (Christ) receives forgiveness of sins through his name” (Acts 10:43). Then ask God to give you the courage to tell those you’ve hurt that you know you were wrong, and you want their forgiveness.
