BURR STUMPS UNANNOUNCED LOCALLY
Builders against cul-de-sac regulations
Republican senator defends campaign funds, criticizes Democrat-led D.C. By BILLY BALL firstname.lastname@example.org
SANFORD — U.S. Sen. Richard Burr made a surprise stop in Sanford Monday in the midst of his campaign for re-election, walking the downtown streets and making an appearance at the county GOP headquarters on Moore Street. The Republican incumbent
said he is touring dozens of towns this week along with his wife, part of a tradition the incumbent Burr senator touts of pounding the streets to encourage voters once the polls are open.
“We get in the car and we don’t tell anybody where we’re going,” Burr said. Monday’s itinerary included Sanford, Southern Pines and Siler City, with the GOP senator taking the opportunity to reinforce his calls for cuts in the federal budget while throwing barbs at Washington leadership and his Democratic opponent,
current N.C. Secretary of State Elaine Marshall. “If you like the direction we’re heading, then I’m not your candidate,” Burr said. Marshall made her own stop in Sanford two weeks ago, traveling in a camper adorned with campaign signs

PRE-SCHOOLS FEEL TECH DRIVE Grant brings two toddler computer stations to local child centers By ALEXA MILAN firstname.lastname@example.org
SANFORD — A few of Lee County’s youngest students are about to get a little more computer-savvy thanks to Communities in Schools of Lee County. The nonprofit organization received a grant for two IBM Young Explorer
computer stations, which were delivered to Floyd L. KnightThe Children’s Center and Warren Williams Child Development Center on Monday morning. Encased in brightly-colored Little Tykes plastic furniture, the computer stations are aimed at children age 3-7 and feature educational software
to help young students learn basic math, science and language concepts including letters, numbers, colors and shapes. “It’s just to give them an extra bit of knowledge as they go into kindergarten,” said

SANFORD — Some local developers are up in arms over a firefighter-recommended ordinance overhaul that would force wider cul-de-sacs in Lee County. Lee County commissioners heard from a pair of developers Monday, both expressing reservations about a plan to direct builders to add 5 feet to the radius and right-of-way requirements for cul-de-sacs. The proposal stems from city and county fire officials who worried that the width of the neighborhood fixtures could pose a maneuvering problem for the largest fire trucks, said Sanford Assistant Planning Director Marshall Downey. “The current design is simply very tight,” Downey said. The ordinance shift would effectively add 10 feet to the diameter of the cul-de-sacs, by increasing the minimum radius from 40 feet to 45 feet. Planners would also require that the 45-foot right of way be extended to 50 feet. The ordinance change would not affect already-completed cul-de-sacs, although future projects would have to meet the standards if they are approved by county commissioners. County commissioners did not vote on the ordinance Monday, following their standard policy of allowing the county Planning Board to weigh in first. Planning Board members were set to discuss the provision at a meeting Monday

Today is Tuesday, Oct. 19, the 292nd day of 2010. There are 73 days left in the year. This day in history: On Oct. 19, 1960, the United States began a limited embargo against Cuba as President Dwight D. Eisenhower banned exports to the communist-ruled nation covering all commodities except medical supplies and certain food products. In 1765, the Stamp Act Congress, meeting in New York, drew up a declaration of rights and liberties. In 1781, British troops under Gen. Lord Cornwallis surrendered at Yorktown, Va., as the American Revolution neared its end. In 1864, Confederate Gen. Jubal A. Early attacked Union forces at Cedar Creek, Va.; the Union troops were able to rally and defeat the Confederates. In 1951, President Harry S. Truman signed an act formally ending the state of war with Germany. In 1960, the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was arrested during a sit-down protest at a lunch counter in Atlanta. (Sent to prison for a parole violation over a traffic offense, King was released after three days following an appeal by Robert F. Kennedy.) In 1967, the U.S. space probe Mariner 5 flew past Venus. In 1987, the stock market crashed as the Dow Jones Industrial Average plunged 508 points, or 22.6 percent in value. In 1994, 22 people were killed as a terrorist bomb shattered a bus in the heart of Tel Aviv’s shopping district. Entertainer Martha Raye died in Los Angeles at age 78.

Sandhills Bike Fest comes to Cameron this weekend By JENNIFER GENTILE firstname.lastname@example.org
CAMERON — Local businesses owner James Swearengin has participated in dozens of motorcycle runs for charity, but never one he’s had a hand in planning. That changes this weekend when Swearengin , owner of J&K Leather in Tramway, presents the 2010 Sandhills Bike Fest. The Cameron get-together, according to Swearengin, is the first of its kind in the Sanford area. “You’d be surprised how much money is raised by people who ride,” said the avid motorcyclist, who owns a Suzuki Boulevard. “You won’t find a better group of people.” Swearengin is a veteran of the biker benefit scene, having made runs for causes ranging from bikers killed in accidents to children’s burn centers. He organized the Sandhills Bike Fest with friends, and already, at least 15 volunteers have pledged to help. Swearengin, his wife and friends took on the project, he said, because “we just thought it would be fun.” “And this way you can control where the money is going as far as donations,” he said. The proceeds will benefit low-income seniors from the area living in St. Joseph’s retirement community, Swearengin said, as well as children in The Shamrock First Baptist Church boys home in Haines City, Fla. Swearengin knows and is related to elders in the church, and he said the funds will be used to give the children a Christmas. “We’ll take the kids to WalMart and K-Mart and let them shop for themselves,” he said.
Tech Continued from Page 1A
Heather Little, executive director of Communities in Schools of Lee County. “Technology is so ingrained in kids now, so we thought it would give them an edge.” The goal of Communities in Schools is to prevent kids from dropping out of school by developing a community of support to encourage them. Communities in Schools of North Carolina received a grant during the summer for the Young Explorer stations, which are part of IBM’s KidSmart Early Learning Program. The program reaches more than 10 million students across the globe. When she learned the state organization had received the grant, Little applied for two stations for Communities in Schools of Lee County. “There was lots of paperwork involved, and a big prayer before turning it in,” Little said. “A little luck goes a long way with a grant like that.” When she found out her request had been approved, Little notified the principals of Warren Williams and Floyd L. Knight that they would be the ones to receive the computer stations. Floyd L. Knight Principal Angela Cockman said she is grateful to Communities in Schools for the donation and feels fortunate that her students will be able to use the Young Explorer educational software. “The Little Tykes computer system will be an additional bonus to help our children,” Cockman said. “When computers are brought into our school, our children benefit greatly and have the potential to become more technologically savvy.” Little said she felt the Young Explorer computer stations would be helpful
Those who attend the bike fest, which will be held at 2957 Cypress Church Road in Cameron, must be at least 21 years old. The festivities get underway at 9 a.m. Friday and don’t wind down until noon on Sunday. “We’re expecting 500-plus bikers,” Swearengin said, adding that the site will have plenty of camper parking (without hookup) available for overnight guests. Tent campers are also welcome. The fest will also feature vendors, biker games, and live Southern rock and blues by Picture Show, the Fog Blues Band and Highway One South. On Saturday at 10 a.m., the bikers will embark on a 100-mile poker run through Vass and Carthage before circling back around through Sanford. Awards will be distributed during closing ceremonies at 10 a.m. on Sunday. “Even if you don’t have a motorcycle,” Swearengin said, “you are more than welcome to come on out and enjoy it.” Tickets are $14 per person per day, which includes camping, or $35 for the entire weekend. Discounted tickets are available in advance from J&K Leather, located at 2308 Jefferson Davis Highway in Sanford.
WANT TO GO? WHAT: Sandhills Bike Fest WHEN: Oct. 22, 23 and 24. The event begins at 9 a.m. Friday and ends at noon on Sunday. WHERE: 2957 Cypress Church Road, Cameron COST: At the gate, a day Pass is $14 per person, and a weekend pass is $30 per person.

additions to Warren Williams and Floyd L. Knight to better prepare their students for a school system with ever-expanding technological resources. Floyd L. Knight recently received its first computer lab, and Cockman said the new computer station fits right in with that initiative. “The donation will be a wonderful addition not only for the pre-school students, but also for some of our upper gradelevel students,” Cockman said. Warren Williams Principal Silvia Bayer was out of town Monday and could not be reached for comment, but Little said Bayer was excited when she learned the news because her students had expressed an interest in working with computers. “I know Silvia has lots of little fingers over there

Button carries a lot of meaning this month Our View Issue Button Chair will be on exhibit at Central Carolina Hospital through Thursday
Our stance The chair, which is on display as part of national Breast Cancer Awareness Month, serves as a reminder for women to have a mammogram, as breast cancer is easier fought the sooner it is found
button may seem so simple. It may be, if one considers it just a button. A button, however, can always tell a story. A button might be from a wedding dress … or an old military uniform … or from a sporting event uniform … or from a dress worn by grandmother. It’s easy to see how buttons can actually bring back delightful memories and can often tell a story from our past. There’s a special chair currently on view at Central Carolina Hospital, until Oct. 21. It’s a chair adorned with many buttons, which was designed by a North Carolina college student as a tribute to breast cancer victims. As Gwyn Sandlin, breast health
navigator at the hospital, has said: “This symbolizes how important it is for women to empower themselves and take action to promote their own breast health.” Among the many buttons is a clasp from an Olympic jacket donated by former North Carolina State University women’s basketball coach Kay Yow, one of the true legends of the sport. The chair, which is available for viewing from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. until Oct. 21, is the centerpiece of the exhibit. There also are interactive kiosks, which includes survivor stories. If just one person who takes the time to visit the chair, and decides to have a mammogram as a way of
If just one person who takes the time to visit the chair, and decides to have a mammogram as a way of watching over her breast health, then the effort to bring the chair here has been worth its while. watching over her health, then the effort to bring the chair here has been worth its while. June Gunter, a member of the Central Carolina Hospital Auxiliary, says of the chair, “I hope this chair will attract grandmothers to bring their granddaughters and mothers to bring their daughters over to see
it. The younger that you can make them aware and impress upon them, the better their chances.” Here’s hoping that this chair of buttons will serve as an inspiration so that all women will be diligently in watching after their health, particularly their breast health. To those women who are fighting breast cancer, remember what the Jim Valvano, the former N.C. State University men’s basketball coach, once said, “Don’t give up. Don’t ever give up.” As Ms. Sandlin said, “It is treatable when it’s found early. Early detection is the best protection, and a mammogram could save their life.”
Letters to the Editor Voters learned a great deal at Herald’s forum To the Editor:
Scott Mooneyham Today in North Carolina Scott Mooneyham is a columnist with Capitol Press Association
ALEIGH — In the days running up to the election, Republicans may need to be on guard for a twist of
fate. By most accounts, the GOP is set for a successful Election Night. Polls put Republicans ahead in races up and down the ballot. In the state Senate, GOP leaders are already figuring out who is going to be in charge of what. In the state House, Democrats are coming to terms with the fact that they could lose their majority, something few believed possible earlier in the year. But as strange as it may seem, the GOP could actually be too well-positioned in the run-up to the election. So far, their top-of-the-ticket candidate, U.S. Sen. Richard Burr, has been able to run away and hide from Democratic challenger Elaine Marshall. A running average of poll results on realclearpolitics.com puts Burr 15 percentage points ahead. The race has generated all the excitement of a lecture on the anatomy of an amoeba. Without any excitement at the top of the ticket, will all those angry, invigorated Republicans materialize on Election Day? What about independents, who are said to be breaking two-to-one in favor of Republican candidates this time around? Marshall simply hasn’t had the campaign cash needed to mount an effective campaign against an incumbent like Burr. The first debate between the two could have made a fussy newborn sleep for three days straight. The second, with Libertarian Mike Beitler along to spice up the affair, was a bit more interesting. Marshall and Beitler tag-teamed Burr, beating up on the incumbent over his support of the financial industry bailout legislation and painting him as a Washington insider. Being the old salesman that he is, Burr deftly deflected the verbal jabs. He said the initial bailout “saved the economy” and that he voted against release of the second half of the $700 billion. He explained his second vote by saying that he didn’t want the government to take ownership stakes in banks. But even if this televised debate was lively, it was probably only seen by a fraction of voters in the state. Burr and Marshall — without Beitler — will go at each other one more time before the election. The rest will be stump speeches and TV ads. It’s possible this latest debate could mark a turning point in which the race heats up. Maybe what dollars Marshall has been able to hoard final make their way to the airwaves. Burr would probably prefer that didn’t happen, that he coast to victory without much fuss. In this odd election season, that result may not be in the best interest of his Republican friends down the ballot. A dull race at the top of the ticket isn’t the formula for success as you move lower. For the GOP to maximize its opportunities to take seats in the state legislature, it needs voter interest and energy. So far, this U.S. Senate race isn’t doing too well on that front.
EW YORK — Witches vs. bearded Marxists. Actors vs. hicks. Toon Town vs. Parodyville. The world isn’t too much with us. We have left the planet. As we race toward the midterm elections, our political conversation has devolved beyond the silly to the absurd — and the sharks are jumping sharks. Is it even possible to have a serious conversation anymore? In a debate Wednesday night, Republican Christine O’Donnell looked at her opponent for the U.S. Senate, Chris Coons — a cleanshaven, shiny-pated Rhodes scholar/attorney/Yale Divinity grad — and said that his 1985 op-ed titled, “Chris Coons: The Making of a Bearded Marxist” should send shivers up the spines of all voters. She was referring to Coons’ own long-ago admission that he became a Democrat after discovering economic disparity during a college-era visit to Kenya. What is it about Kenya? Coons’ insistence that he wrote the op-ed as a joke simply isn’t credible, if you read it. It was sincere and thoughtful. He clearly was transformed by his experience, which included living with a poor Kenyan family and studying under a Marxist professor, but this doesn’t have much bearing on who he is today. I can’t speak for an entire generation, but I had plenty of Marxist professors and was deeply moved by the economic disparities in the world, which is why I was a Democrat back in the day. But I grew up to be a happy capitalist. And never mind that we’re meanwhile supposed to have equal patience with O’Donnell’s youthful declaration that she had dabbled in witchcraft. It seems to me the young Marxist and the young witch cancel each other out. But what about now? Can we hold each responsible for who and what they are and say today? If so, then we have ample cause for shivers. O’Donnell, when pressed about whether she believed in evolution, dodged the question and said the decision about whether to teach evolution or creationism should be left to local school districts and that what she believes isn’t relevant. But of course it is. Coons’ palpable uneasiness doubtless was owing equally to his contempt for her shallow knowledge and to his inability to challenge her without seeming a bully. Instead, he seemed merely condescending and snarky. If the witch and Marxist were a wash, the Everyday American triumphed over the elite. Ditto the scene in Las Vegas Thursday night, where tea party candidate Sharron Angle managed to hold her own against Harry Reid. Of course, to be fair, all Angle and O’Donnell had to do was not be weird — hardly a high bar for public office. Political parties, meanwhile, have distilled themselves so completely to their essences that they have caricatured themselves into cartoonish self-parody. Witness the recent town hall wherein President
Kathleen Parker Columnist Kathleen Parker is a columnist with the Washington Post Writers Group
Obama’s audience was culled from a casting call and the Republican ad campaign in West Virginia that sought “hicky” people. Oy, as we say down South. Republicans and Democrats are so busy pointing fingers, they fail to see what is plainly obvious. They are mirror images of each other and each is equally cynical and corrupt. “A Conversation with President Obama,” the town hall meeting co-sponsored by MTV/BET/CMT, featured an hour-long chat with young people, i.e. the president’s base of last resort. Prior to the event, the casting website Backstage.com put out a call for “males and females 18-plus” to fill out a questionnaire to include “your name, phone number, hometown, school attending, your job and what issues, if any, you are interested in, or passionate about.” Well, it beats risking another encounter with Velma Hart, the middle-aged AfricanAmerican woman who, at another recent, less-scripted Town Hall meeting told Obama that she was “exhausted” defending him. Lest the GOP lose itself in mirth, let’s turn to the Republican casting call for people who are “hicky,” presumably an endearing adjective referring to the behavioral attributes of “hicks” — aka ignorant, poor whites. After days of denials, the National Republican Senatorial Committee had to acknowledge that a media consultant it hired, Jamestown Associates, had in fact put out the call for hicks to flesh out ads for the Senate race. The political divide between Elites and Ordinary Americans has never been starker or more comical, or more resplendent with self-loathing. When even Republicans view their base as ignorant rednecks — and Democrats no longer try to conceal their reliance on artifice and propaganda — farce has become the new reality.
Today’s Prayer Fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. (Matthew 10:28) PRAYER: Father, help me to have a burden for the unsaved, may I be a faithful witness for You. Amen.
Everyone should thank The Herald for the candidate’s forum that it conducted Oct. 7. It was a mission accomplished. The forum was very successful in allowing voters to witness where the candidates stand on issues and gave them a glimpse of their character traits. There was a clear distinction between the candidates opposing one another. Based upon their comments and answers to questions, one party must believe that the Titanic had a successful voyage. They would have voters think that the economic situation is so rosy that the federal, state and Lee County governments just need to continue confiscating money from taxpayers and spend it. Their common theme was to talk about the need to generate revenue for the government. This was further evidenced by their continuing to promote incentives for multi-billion dollar corporations. Incentives have been a miserable failure. Otherwise, the unemployment rate would not be hovering around double digits as it has for several months. Does anyone believe that one of these huge corporations would continue to provide a product or service that was such a failure? That product line or service would be eliminated as soon as the first performance results were recorded. However, the politicians continue to spend taxpayer money on incentives that produce little more than headlines and photos of ribbon-cutting ceremonies. In contrast, the Republicans called for lower taxes so that families and businesses can keep their hardearned money and spend it as they choose. Candidates Mike Stone, running for the House District 51 seat; and commissioner candidates Linda Shook, Jim Womack and Charlie Parks pointed out that the high state and Lee County tax rates are not conducive to attracting employers. Sensibly, Parks called for comprehensive, independent audits to determine where taxpayer money is being spent. This is a common first step for any entity that wants to reduce spending. Astonishingly, his opponent, Commissioner Amy Dalrymple, thinks that such audits are unnecessary. This is another clear indication that Dalrymple and her comrades are not serious about their fiduciary responsibility to taxpayers. In his elitist and loud tone, Democrat Mike Womble asked the moderator to throw attendees out that were applauding the Republicans. Then there was Democrat Butch Johnson whose remarks directed at Womack drew the only round of boos from the audience. Johnson, who claims that he is an ardent supporter of law enforcement and incentives, might want to compare the salaries of the sheriff and the director of economic development; the disparity might annoy him. Thanks to The Herald, voters learned a great deal. And for the record, the Titanic sank during its first voyage. SHERRY SHAW MCDONALD Sanford ■ Mail letters to: Editor, The Sanford Herald, P.O.

and one message that read â€œnot paid for by big corporation and special interests.â€? The Democrat, who reportedly trails Burr at the poles, has pounded the senator for accepting millions in campaign dollars from corporate backers, a fact that Marshall contends indicates Burr is out of touch with the typical North Carolinian. Burr rebuffed Marshallâ€™s criticisms Monday, suggesting that denying business interests the opportunity to contribute to campaigns is tantamount to infringing the right to free speech. â€œI realize sheâ€™s desperate and thatâ€™s why she attacks me for being more successful at fundraising,â€? Burr said. The senator has not only drawn fire from Marshall, but he has faced harsh criticism as well from Libertarian candidate Mike Beitler. On Monday, Burr advocated for cutting the federal budget back to 2008 standards, although Democrats have attempted to link the senator with backing big spending in the heyday of former President George W. Bush.
â€” Sen. Richard Burr â€” Republican incumbent, U.S. Senate
Despite the criticisms, Burr has called for strict scrutiny of the federal budget and defended his vote for the 2008 economic recovery package that has become a target of fiscal conservatives, a measure that he says prevented the economy from an even deeper fall during the recession. â€œMost adults understand that what weâ€™re doing today is going to kill our children and our grandchildren with debt,â€? he said. â€œYou canâ€™t just keep kicking the can down the road.â€? Burr predicted Republicans would seize control of the U.S. House of Representatives in this yearâ€™s elections, although he said the battle for U.S. Senate power would remain close. Polls prior to Burrâ€™s recent debates with Marshall and Beitler indicated the Republican has a comfortable lead on his opponents.

The performers, all undergraduate students at the College of Music, were Dingchen Xu, on the dizi, a flute; Ziyin Wu, on the erhu, a violin-type instrument; Siting Wang, on the yangqing, a hammered dulcimer; Qi Bao, on the lute-like pipa; and Jingyu Wu, on the zither-like guzheng. The works ranged from pieces such as â€œStrolling Along the Su Causeway,â€? a haunting number performed by the whole ensemble, to the rousing â€œHorse Racing,â€? a musical depiction of horse racing during a festival, performed on the erhu and yangqing.

companied by delicate but beautiful watercolor paintings depicting the musicâ€™s theme and adding to the understanding and enjoyment of the work. Following the free concert, the audience was invited to the stage to speak with the musicians and learn more about the instruments. Nancy Pickard, of Sanford, took advantage of the opportunity to not only learn more about the pipa, but to try to play it with the assistance of musician Qi Bao. â€œThe concert was wonderful,â€? she said. â€œI would love to have more. Iâ€™m delighted that the college has the Confucius Classroom and is able to bring us a taste of something completely different.â€? Central Carolina Community Collegeâ€™s Confucius Classroom is the first in the United States established at a community college. CCCC President Bud Marchant brought the idea of establishing a Confucius Classroom when he became president in 2008. â€œChinese is second only to English as the language of international commerce
and China is increasingly important economically to North Carolina,â€? he said. â€œOur Confucius Classroom will help to prepare people with language skills and cultural understanding to take advantage of these increasing ties, increase mutual understanding, help improve relations between our countries, and benefit businesses in both.â€? In 2009, NCSUâ€™s Confucius Institute partnered with the college to establish the Confucius Classroom at the collegeâ€™s Lee County Campus. The universityâ€™s Institute is a partnership with Nanjing Normal University and the Chinese Ministry of Education. Dr. Shuya Che, associate professor of Chinese linguistics and literature at Nanjing Normal University, is a visiting professor at the college for the Confucius Classroom. Confucius, a great Chinese thinker and social philosopher of the 6th century B.C., taught that education and wisdom are fundamental principles of life. The Chinese Ministry of Education has established Confucius Institutes

Van Groce Jr. â€œWeâ€™re talking about making a 90-foot cul-de-sac that is twice the size of Horner Boulevard to occasionally turn a fire truck around.â€? Meanwhile, local Realtor Albert Adcock warned commissioners that the

Tickets are free, but must be reserved in advance by calling the college at (919) 718-7268. â€œIâ€™m so glad we can bring performances such as the ensemble to Central Carolina Community College and Sanford,â€? said Professor Xiaoying Wong, deputy director of NCSUâ€™s Confucius Institute. â€œIt is a good chance for people of different cultures to know, appreciate, and understand each other.â€?

SEAU DRIVES OFF CLIFF, SUSTAINS MINOR INJURIES CARLSBAD, Calif. (AP) — Former NFL star linebacker Junior Seau drove off a cliff and was hospitalized with minor injuries Monday, less than nine hours after he was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence. The 12-time Pro Bowler’s white Cadillac SUV was found on the beach about 100 feet below the roadside, said Carlsbad police Lt. Kelly Cain. Cain said it wasn’t a sheer cliff, but was a significant, rough slope. Seau was taken to Scripps La Jolla Hospital in San Diego. Seau’s 25-year-old live-in girlfriend told authorities that Seau assaulted her during an argument Sunday night at his Oceanside home, according to Oceanside police. She appeared to have minor injuries and did not require medical treatment. Seau, 41, was arrested outside his home about two hours after police arrived. He wasn’t home when authorities arrived but they asked him to return when he called his girlfriend. Seau posted bail and was released from the San Diego County jail in Vista.

Moore back in at QB John Fox benches Clausen after just three weeks By MIKE CRANSTON AP Sports Writer
he Carolina Hurricanes’ current west coast swing could end up putting a damper on the season-opening trek to Finland, where the team opened the season with consecutive wins. Since then, a loss at Ottawa and Sunday’s 5-1 drubbing at the hands of the Vancouver Canucks have evened Carolina’s record at 2-2. By the time the team finally returns to Raleigh for its home opener on Oct. 27 against the reigning division champion Washington Capitals, three additional road games will reveal whether the annual flight of earlyseason boo-birds will have taken up early residence in the rafters of the RBC Center. First things first, though.

Subs key in Cavaliers’ 10-1 rout of Jaguars By RYAN SARDA
SANFORD — The Southern Lee Cavaliers got a huge boost from their bench as they remain undefeated in the Cape Fear Valley Conference. Southern Lee had five goals from its bench players in its 10-1 rout of conference foe Overhills on Monday night at Cavalier Stadium. Even after trailing 1-0 through the first few minutes of the match, the Cavaliers never got flustered as they responded with 10 unanswered goals to improve to 15-2 overall and 8-0 in the conference, where they remain a game ahead of Union Pines for first place. “One of our biggest strengths is our depth,” said Southern Lee head coach Jason Burman. “We are very deep and other teams aren’t. There’s not a lot of teams in our conference that are deep enough to compete with us for 80 minutes. When you have 18,19, 20 guys out there a night, you eventually wear teams down. We had five goals

Carlos Flores and Arturo Adame also had two goals apiece for the Cavaliers. Rolando Sanchez, Rogelio Vivas, Alex
Palme and Miguel Aguirre each contributed with a goal for Southern Lee. Ben Holt added three assists and Adolfo Torres had two assists to contribute to Southern Lee’s victory.

CHARLOTTE — Things are so bad on offense for the Carolina Panthers that struggling rookie Jimmy Clausen was benched Monday to make way for a quarterback with eight turnovers and a 33.3 passer rating. Only Matt Moore is hoping a nostalgic film session will help him regain his 2009 form and end Carolina’s nightmare start to the season. The Panthers (0-5) returned from their bye weekend to hear coach John Fox announce in a team meeting Moore that Moore, benched after six turnovers in the first two games, would again take control of the NFL’s worst offense against San Francisco (1-5) on Sunday. Fox announced the move to reporters in a statement through a team spokesman. “We have struggled on offense since the beginning of the season,” said Fox, whose team is averaging a leaguelow 10.4 points a game. “Sometimes it helps to step back and watch and Matt has had a chance to do that.” What Moore saw wasn’t pretty — perhaps uglier than his own performance in the first two games. Clausen, a second-round pick from Notre Dame, has completed just 47 percent of his passes with one touchdown and three interceptions. Clausen, who has struggled finding receivers, has also fumbled seven times, losing two, and holds a 52.2 passer rating. Fox yanked Clausen late in Carolina’s last game, a 236 loss to Chicago on Oct. 10 in which top receiver Steve Smith (ankle) was side-

BUIES CREEK â€” Campbellâ€™s new baseball stadium at Taylor Field began phase one of construction this week, beginning the overhaul project that will give the Camels a new and improved home. Construction of the facility, which will be carried out in two phases wrapped around the 2011 season, will be completed prior to opening day, 2012. â€œThis is a tremendous day for our program with the start of our stadium project,â€? said CU head coach Greg Goff. â€œIâ€™m very thankful for the huge commitment from our administration and appreciate all they have done to make this day happen.â€? The process began on Monday morning with the demolition of existing bathrooms, entrance, storage facility, and exterior fencing. Upgrades during the initial phase will include a new entrance gate and
ticket booth, restroom and concession facility, exterior wrought iron fencing and improved exterior landscaping. Phase one is scheduled to be completed in early February, 2011. Phase two is slated to begin in June 2011 with the demolition of the existing Taylor Field grandstand, press box and concession stand. A new grandstand will then be added with seating for 1,985 fans, including nearly 600 chair-backs, plus a new pressbox, new brick exterior for the stadium, dugouts and increased picnic and pavilion seating down the foul lines. â€œWith this project, Campbell Baseball, its fans and alumni will have one of the finest facilities on the East Coast to enjoy a game,â€? added Goff. â€œWith these upgrades, the sky is the limit to where we can take this program from here.â€? In 2010, Campbellâ€™s third year under head coach Greg Goff, the Camels enjoyed another
record-breaking season, producing their highest wins total (28) in nearly a decade, and registering back-to-back winning seasons for the first time since 2001 by posting a 28-27 overall record. Those victories included triumphs over North Carolina State and East Carolina, and ran CUâ€™s mark against in-state rivals to 22-7 over the past two seasons. Over the past three years, Campbell has set 43 school records, including 19 during the 2010 campaign. For the third-straight season, CU set a new school mark for stolen bases (119). In fact, only one A-Sun school (Lipscomb) attempted as many steals as Coach Goffâ€™s squad swiped during 2010. For more information on how you may assist in the construction of the new facility at Taylor Field, contact the Campbell University Athletics Department at (910) 893-1328.
Crusaders looking to advance to semis
SANFORD â€” The Grace Christian soccer team is just one win away from getting to the state semifinals for the second straight season. The No. 4 seed Crusaders (10-10), who played without their starting lineup for much of the season, will travel to No. 1 seed Vandalia Christian (14-2) in the quarterfinals of the NCCSA 3-A state tournament at 6 p.m. Tuesday in Greensboro. The Vikings, who have lost two in a row headed into their third meeting with the Crusaders, had a first-round bye which landed them a spot in the quarterfinals. Since the Crusaders have been at full strength, they have won two straight including their 2-1 victory over county rival Lee Christian in the opening round of the tournament last week. Last year, Grace Christian edged the Vikings 1-0 in overtime to advance to the semifinals. The Crusaders ended up falling in the semifinals before winning the consolation game to finish third in the state. The semifinals will begin on Friday at Alamance Christian in Graham. Both the championship and consolation games will be played on Saturday.

Kahne sick to his stomach and of car
By JENNA FRYER AP Auto Racing Writer CHARLOTTE â€” Hours after he was too ill to get back in his wounded race car, Kasey Kahne ran a Sunday morning 5k for his charity in a shade over 22 minutes. â€œThat was the slowest I ever ran a 5K,â€? he said. â€œIâ€™m definitely feeling the effects.â€? Yes, Kahne was physically sick Saturday night, and said he vomited once after his accident 124 laps into the race at Charlotte Motor Speedway. He was also sick of his race car, frustrated with running poorly and disgusted that his brakes had failed for the third time this season, and second time in three races. Had he not gotten sick, Kahne said Sunday he might have gotten back in the car after his Richard Petty Motorsports crew repaired some of the damage. By that time, though, he was 100 laps down. He was queasy, annoyed with the brakes and angry at criticism from an unnamed RPM employee. So he said no, he couldnâ€™t continue, and the team grabbed J.J. Yeley to finish the race. â€œI was told that I needed to start doing my part, (that) is what one guy told me last night after the race,â€? Kahne said at the NASCAR Hall of Fame, at the finish line of the Kasey Kahne Foundation 5-kilometer run. â€œIâ€™m not going to say names, but I was told that I need to start doing my part. I canâ€™t control the issues Iâ€™ve had this year. I donâ€™t know how many parts Iâ€™ve broke,â€? he said. â€œIf I really

â€œOnce we started moving the ball around like we usually do, things went well,â€? said Burman. â€œI thought early on we were trying too hard to score. We were getting too caught up in dribbling and shooting instead of moving the ball around. Once we stopped doing that and started playing our game, things went very well for us.â€? The Cavaliers will travel to Union Pines on Wednesday in a critical game for both teams. A
Sam Hornish Jr. (77) and Kasey Kahne (9) spin on the front stretch during the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series auto race at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord Saturday. thought about it, I could come up with all kinds of stuff. â€œYou canâ€™t control that as a driver. Iâ€™m doing my part. I just need the car. I work as hard as anybody out there.â€? Kahneâ€™s disappearing act was a mere sideshow to Jamie McMurrayâ€™s victory and yet another improbable comeback for Jimmie Johnson. The four-time defending NASCAR champion spun early, dropped to 37th in the field, and rallied to finish second and widen his lead in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship standings. Johnson was up early Sunday to join fellow NASCAR driver Joey Logano in running Kahneâ€™s charity â€œ5Kahne.â€? The inaugural run drew 302 runners and raised $30,000 for his foundation. It was a nice show of support from Johnson to his future teammate. Kahne signed to join Hendrick Motorsports in 2012 this spring, and will move to Red Bull Racing next year as a one-season holding spot before he makes his
eventual move to HMS. Kahne confirmed Sunday that crew chief Kenny Francis will move to Red Bull with him, and that Francis will have the option of staying at Red Bull or moving to Hendrick in 2012. At the rate things are going, it would be surprising if Kahne doesnâ€™t try to move to Red Bull sometime over the final five races of this year. Heâ€™s miserable at RPM, where a year after making the Chase, heâ€™s winless, ranked 21st in the standings and has just nine top10 finishes. The final straw seemed to be Saturday night, when Kahne said he had never been so mad in a race car. â€œI lost it,â€? he said. â€œI was just mad. I came into the race thinking we had a shot to win, thinking we had a good car in practice, we had a good shot. It went green. We were a little bit tight, but still actually passed cars and really felt good and then boom, my brakes are gone. â€œItâ€™s not like you have half-brakes, like you can
pump them. Your foot goes to the floor. It bottoms out. Itâ€™s a joke.â€? Kahne thinks the problem is the brake fluid RPM is using, adding that Francis wanted to change to a different brand but was overruled because Kahne is the only one of eight teams using the fluid having a problem. â€œBasically we run stuff thatâ€™s not very good compared to some of the other teams,â€? Kahne said. â€œSo once you lose your brakes, you canâ€™t get them back. With that fluid, you canâ€™t get them back. There are other fluids that you can, but with ours you canâ€™t. Their point is that we have eight teams and Iâ€™m the only one thatâ€™s had this issue, and thatâ€™s a good point. â€œBut Iâ€™ve never had any issues in my past six years,â€? he said. â€œIf you look at brakes after a race, my brake pads are better than any one of the other seven or the same as the best ones that donâ€™t use much brake. So itâ€™s just a mess, really.â€?
win will all but seal the Cape Fear Valley regular season championship for the Cavaliers once again, but a loss will keep the Vikings in the hunt. Headed into Wednesday nightâ€™s game at Union Pines, Southern Lee will be focusing on stopping Allen Cha, who leads the Vikings in goals this season. â€œHeâ€™s very good,â€? said Burman. â€œHeâ€™s got a bunch of goals for them. Heâ€™s fast, heâ€™s strong and he knows how to finish. Our seniors have played against players of his caliber before. This is going to be quite a challenge for our group.â€? With four games
remaining on the season, the Cavaliers know that another conference championship is well within their reach. â€œWeâ€™re in a good spot right now,â€? said Burman. â€œWeâ€™re a game and a half up and we could be 2.5 games up by the end of the night. We need to win the conference because that means home games in the playoffs. Itâ€™ll mean that we can host a playoff game in the first and second round. Thatâ€™s huge for us. Weâ€™re going to be facing some tough teams in the postseason and weâ€™d feel better playing at home against them.â€? Burman says that de-
spite the sluggish start, heâ€™s pleased with how his starters and his bench responded after getting down 1-0 early on to Overhills. â€œEvery team is going to try and play their best game against us,â€? said Burman. â€œWeâ€™ve got to expect it every single night. Once we got down 1-0 early, we knew that they were playing their hardest. We knew that it was time for us to play our hardest as well. Our bench was huge. The score was: Our Bench 5, Starters 5. It was pretty balanced and thatâ€™s what you need to have in order to win.â€?

Woods getting used to a new life THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) â€” Tiger Woods says he never learned more in a year in which he never won less. Woods said Monday he is more at peace with his personal life than when he returned to golf in April, and he remains hopeful that his season will not end without a victory. â€œI learned a lot about myself, and I learned how things went wrong, why they went wrong, and had to take a pretty deep and introspective look at myself. And there wasnâ€™t a lot of things I like about it,â€? Woods said in a video conference call for his Chevron World Challenge. â€œBut I had to do it, and I did it, and grateful that I did. â€œI think that I come from a much better place, much more grounded place now than I ever have before.â€? The Chevron World Challenge, to be played Dec. 3-6 at Sherwood Country Club, will be his final tournament of the year. Woods next plays Nov. 4 in Shanghai at the HSBC Champions, his last chance to win an official PGA Tour event. Then heâ€™s off to Melbourne to defend his title in the Australian Masters before closing out the year at Sherwood.Woods is a four-time winner of his tournament, although he hasnâ€™t played the last two years. He was recovering from knee surgery in 2008, and he missed last year because it was one week after the car accident that exposed his extramarital af-
fairs and shattered his image as sportsâ€™ most impeccable star. Woods took four months off from golf to go through rehab, returning at the Masters. He tied for fourth at Augusta National, and he tied for fourth at the U.S. Open. Those were his two best results of the year, however, as he failed to win a tournament and did not even reach the FedEx Cup finale at the Tour Championship. He was divorced on Aug. 23 from Elin Nordegren. Woods said his two children are getting adjusted to their new living conditions. â€œI think everyoneâ€™s certainly more at peace, and so am I,â€? Woods said. His tournament has one of its best fields, with defending champion Jim Furyk and Woods joining a dozen other Ryder Cup players. The list includes three major champions â€” all but Masters champ Phil Mickelson â€” along with newcomers Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson. The two sponsor exemptions were awarded to Camilo Villegas and Stewart Cink. In his last performance, Woods was 9 under through 15 holes when he beat Francesco Molinari in singles, playing the final seven holes in 7-under-par. Europe still won the Ryder Cup, although Woods had his best week in the event, going 3-1.
