SANFORD — Children and parents alike “ooh”ed and “ahh”ed as the tall Christmas tree in Depot Park was lit Thursday night. The largest crowd ever turned out for Downtown Sanford Inc.’s ninth annual Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony. Several first-timers came out for the Christmas kick-off event, which included the tree lighting, viewing of “Polar Express” and photos with Santa.

SANFORD — The Lee County Board of Commissioners will consider a resolution Monday that, if passed, will bring the local sales tax to 8 percent. Voters in November overwhelmingly approved of a referendum allowing the commissioners to consider such an increase. Although the public’s vote was not binding, the referendum’s passage was widely seen as an approval of the proposed increase. If the board passes the increase Monday, revenue generated by the increase — estimated by county officials to be more than $1 million annually — will fund renovations at Lee County High School and other education-related projects. The commissioners in October voted to move forward with funding the renovations regardless of whether the sales tax increase passed. Richard Hayes, the board of

Almanac This day in history: On Dec. 4, 1619, settlers from Bristol, England, arrived at Berkeley Hundred in present-day Charles City County, Va., where they held a service thanking God for their safe arrival. In 1942, U.S. bombers struck the Italian mainland for the first time in World War II. President Franklin D. Roosevelt ordered the dismantling of the Works Progress Administration, which had been created to provide jobs during the Depression. In 1965, the United States launched Gemini 7 with Air Force Lt. Col. Frank Borman and Navy Cmdr. James A. Lovell aboard. In 1978, San Francisco got its first female mayor as City Supervisor Dianne Feinstein was named to replace the assassinated George Moscone. In 1984, a five-day hijack drama began as four armed men seized a Kuwaiti airliner en route to Pakistan and forced it to land in Tehran, where the hijackers killed American passenger Charles Hegna.

Solve a mystery in Pittsboro



Northwood headed to jazz festival

‘Christmas in the Park’ set for Sunday

PITTSBORO — The Northwood High School Jazz Ensemble is competing in an internationally recognized jazz festival at Disney World in Orlando at the end of February. The festival will be judged by jazz giants from across the globe, and Northwood student musicians will get to participate in jam sessions and clinics with these musicians as well as receiving ratings, comments and scores. To prepare for this contest, the Jazz Ensemble will put on a concert for the community at 7 p.m. Feb. 9. “We have the opportunity to bring the Touring Glenn Miller Orchestra as a performer, guest artist and clinician,� said Eugene Cottrell, band director. “This opportunity may be a once-in-a-lifetime chance for the members of the Pittsboro community to enjoy this exceptional ensemble,� he said. “The cost to bring in the orchestra is $3,500. The $5 ticket price for concert will probably only cover about $500 of that cost. I am asking for help from the community to bring the GMO here for the enrichment of Pittsboro and our music students at Northwood High School.� The down payment of $1,750 would need to be remitted to the orchestra by Dec. 10. Donations should be written to Northwood High School Band. Any amount collected as overage to the orchestra performance will be used to help offset costs for needy students attending the trip to Florida.

BROADWAY — The town of Broadway will host Christmas in the Park at 5 p.m. Sunday. The event will be held in the North Carolina Veterans Memorial Park on Main Street. It includes Christmas carols, a reading of the Christmas story and a Christmas tree lighting. The event is free.

Editorial Board: Bill Horner III, Publisher • Billy Liggett, Editor • R.V. Hight, Special Projects Editor

Noelle Marsh deserves a key to the city Our View Issue:

Sanford native Noelle Marsh’s exit from “SYTYCD” Wednesday night

Our stance:

Marsh is a star to us. Performing on the show with grace and dignity, she made us all proud, and the city should reward in some way

Nearly every afternoon, come rain, snow, summer heat or winter cold, you can see them. Dozens of teen and pre-teen girls walking in and out of the several dance studios in and around downtown Sanford. Armed with a love of dance and, perhaps, a dream of a spot on a cheerleading squad at a local high school, a position on a college dance team or even of bigger stardom, these young girls work tirelessly at their craft. Sanford native Noelle Marsh has already lived part of her dream — proving her chops as a contemporary dancer on the highly rated TV show “So You Think You Can Dance,” by

making the show’s top 8 performers before failing to receive enough votes to move on during Wednesday night’s show. We at The Herald are very proud of Marsh, as we know her family, friends and teachers are right now. Even though she was eliminated from the show despite turning in what one judge deemed a “perfect” performance Tuesday night, she handled the whole experience with a grace far beyond her 18 years. Noelle, you’re a star to us, and we are sure Wednesday night isn’t the last time America will see your talents on display. In fact her affiliation with the show is not over. Despite

her elimination from the show, Marsh will continue to dance with the Top 10 during a national tour after this season’s finale. After that, we’re sure there will be casting directors calling for her services. A beautiful young lady with skills like hers will not go unnoticed, especially after making such a splash on the show. That being said, the City of Sanford owes it to Marsh to pay tribute to her acheivements as well. For more than a month, Sanford was mentioned (in a positive light, no less) to a national audience and she represented us with class and dignity. It’s time to give back to her, perhaps with “Noelle Marsh Day”

in Sanford. Have the mayor present her with the key to the city at Depot Park in front of her hometown crowd one evening...Throw her a parade...Do something... Heck, maybe we could even get her to show off a dance or two in the process. Not only does Sanford owe Marsh, it also owes the other young girls dancing for a dream in this town every evening. They should know that their goals are just as important as the boys who dream of baseball stardom on our little league fields each summer. With a little hard work, maybe they, too, can one day be the toast of the town.

Eminent domain


n New London, Conn., finding a public benefit to one of the more controversial governmental acts of recent times might prove a little difficult these days. A few years back, New London became embroiled in a renowned court case because of that action. The city had used its condemnation powers to take the property of Susette Kelo and her neighbors. The property wasn’t condemned to build a school or public hospital. The city wanted the property to redevelop the land so that other private property owners could eventually take it. The rest is history. Kelo and some neighbors sued. The case eventually made its way to the U.S. Supreme Court, which upheld the city’s right to use eminent domain for economic development purposes. The ruling was widely condemned by most everyone not employed by a local government or not blinded by some definition of progress so narrow that any governmental act in its name can be justified. The nation’s high court, though, ruled that the property taking and the job creation that would result added up to a public benefit or public use, and therefore didn’t violate the 7th Amendment of the Bill of Rights. Those jobs and that benefit came from plans by drug-maker Pfizer to build a research facility adjacent to the redeveloped property. But in early November, Pfizer announced it was shutting down the research plant. All that land forcibly bought still remains fallow. What do New London and Pfizer have to do with North Carolina? Well, North Carolina legislators — unlike those in several other states — refused to put an amendment to the state constitution before voters to block this sort of thing from happening here. The powers-that-be in the state don’t seem willing to open their eyes to the lessons of New London and the Pfizer plant closing. One University of North Carolina School of Government professor said while writing about the plant closing: “If North Carolina were to enact such an amendment, would it result in any changes to current eminent domain policies? Not really.” The professor ignores the state’s own history. At least five times over the past 30 years, local laws allowed the exact same kind of taking for economic development purposes that occurred in New London. ... In each case, local governments came to the legislature seeking permission. The local bills that granted that permission were essentially exceptions to existing law. No comprehensive law governing eminent domain — whether passed in 1960 or in 2006 — could prevent the same thing from happening today. That is the state’s policy. Only a constitutional amendment will change it.

Copenhagen conundrum


limate-change skeptics are barking up the wrong smokestack. The shell game being played isn’t with the science, it’s with the solutions — specifically, the carbon emissions targets that enlightened world leaders are pledging to meet. That’s where the numbers don’t add up. When the Copenhagen climate summit convenes next week, the European nations that have led the crusade against global warming will be able to report that the continent has met the targets for carbon emission reductions set in the 1997 Kyoto Protocol. There may be shoulder dislocations from all the self-congratulatory back-patting. But the Kyoto targets were well on the way toward being met before they were even established. The targets are based on 1990 emissions levels — after the Soviet Union and the Eastern Bloc had been fouling the air for years with their antiquated, carbonspewing heavy industries. When the communist regimes — and their creaky economies — collapsed in a heap, emissions from the former Soviet-dominated zone fell by nearly 40 percent. Now they are rising again, but they remain about 35 percent below Kyoto’s benchmark 1990 levels. This post-Soviet industrial meltdown is responsible for most of the progress in reducing carbon emissions that Europe is able to claim. It’s not that Europeans have done nothing. Leaving aside the Soviet collapse, they managed to keep emissions relatively constant. By contrast, Japan — the proud host of the Kyoto talks — has seen its carbon emissions increase by nearly 9 percent since then. The United States, of course, never ratified the Kyoto treaty. Since 1997, carbon emissions here have increased by an estimated 7 percent. In China — which has now taken over as the world’s leading source of atmospheric greenhouse gases — carbon emissions actually doubled over the past 12 years. Along with other fast-growing economic powers such as India and Brazil, China took a pass on any limits Kyoto might have wanted to impose. The bottom line is that since the Kyoto agreement 12 years ago, worldwide carbon emissions have increased by nearly 30 percent. President Obama, who has decided to attend the Copenhagen summit, plans to offer a 17 percent cut in U.S carbon emissions — using 2005 levels as a benchmark — by 2020. Leaving aside for the moment whether this is achievable, either politically or technologically, the problem remains that climate change is a global phenomenon. Local action can be rendered meaningless. China is prepared to offer its first emissions target at Copenhagen, and at first glance it looks impressive: a reduction of between 40 percent and 45 percent in its “carbon intensity” by 2020. But this “intensity” business is a huge caveat, because it refers to

carbon emissions relative to the size of the Chinese economy. If the economy grew by 10 percent in a given year and carbon emissions grew “only” by 9 percent, that would count as a reduction. Assuming growth continues at current rates, China’s carbon emissions could easily increase by 40 percent by 2020 — and Chinese leaders could proclaim they had met their target. That’s a lot of numbers, a lot of assumptions, a lot of scenarios. But even if the Copenhagen summit is wildly successful, the concentration of heat-trapping carbon in the atmosphere will continue to rise. This doesn’t mean the whole exercise is futile, it just means that Copenhagen won’t provide any definitive solution to what so many scientists say is an urgent problem. It’s also true that even if all greenhouse emissions could magically be halted tomorrow, the elevated levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere — higher than at any time in the past 800,000 years, according to researchers who study Antarctic ice-core samples — would take many decades to decline to historical levels. If the planet is warm now because of human-generated greenhouse gases, it’s going to get warmer. If the low-lying Maldives disappear beneath the Indian Ocean because of sea-level rise, that will be a disaster. If “extreme” weather events such as major hurricanes really do become more frequent, that will increase the potential for catastrophe in coastal cities around the world. But if there’s a longer growing season in the higher latitudes? If cross-polar shipping slashes transportation costs? If winters are milder — more pleasant, even — in Chicago, Moscow and Beijing? We may all be in this together, but there are going to be winners and losers. That’s something they should talk about in Copenhagen, too.

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

To the Editor: Even after all of the ridiculous expenditures in the newest Health Care Bill H.R. 3962 have been revealed, there are still some saying this bill would be beneficial to our country. It is quite funny, however, that those who suport this bill have probably never taken a look at its content or have briefly glanced over the 2,100 page atrocity. There are several examples we can observe that leads us to the conclusion that this bil is nothing more than political garbage. The Government-run system has been implemented in Masachussetts by Republican governor Mitt Romney and in Canada. The result of both both plans was such a huge and miserable failure that the media will not even mention it. This bill is also filled with sweet deals (or in my definition, “bribes”) for politicians who vote for it and regulations on things we are used to that this plan even being considered to be voted on is an embarrassment. Let’s not forget that after “RomneyCare” was implemented in Massachusetts, it took only three years for the state to start rationing health care services due to budget shortfalls. The bill states in Section 2572, page 1,515 “In the case of an article of food sold from a vending machine that- (I) does not permit a prospective purchase to examine the Nutritional Facts Panel before purchasing the artcile or does not otherwise provide visible information at the point of purchase; and (II) is operated by a person who is engaged in the business of owning or operating 20 or more vending machines, “The vending machine operator shall provide a sign in close proximity to each article of food or the selection button that includes a clear and conspicuous statement disclosing the number of calories contained in the article.” Oh, and let’s not forget that this bill has been estimated by the National Automatic Merchandising Association to cost $56.4 Million to regulate, for the first year, all vending machines. Wow, sounds great! Democrats have even also said that this bill is going to operate simlarly to medicare and, according to the National HealthCare Exchange Service, only 475, 566 of the 6,398,431 claims submitted have been denied meaning that 6.85 percent of the total submitted claims received have been denied making medicare the biggest denier of claims in our health care payment system. Oh, and did I mention that that is only for a one year period (March 2007-March 2008)? I hope that until REAL bipartisanship is reached in Congress on this bill (I made a joke) that every Congressman will vote against it. Our system is being broken, but it is not broken. We will fix what we have and what we have is the greatest healthcare system in the world no matter what any liberal says. Colby D. Carr Morganton

Hardy’s court dates moved to January CARTHAGE — Court dates for Jeff Hardy, the professional wrestler who Moore County sheriff’s deputies allegedly found in possession of prescription pills, anabolic steroids and cocaine during a September raid, have been moved to January. Hardy’s attorney said he will face charges of trafficking in opium, two counts of possession with intent to sell or deliver a Schedule III controlled substance, maintaining a dwelling for drugs, possession of cocaine, and possession of drug paraphernalia on Jan. 27 in the Moore County Courthouse in Carthage. Hardy, 32, has worked off and on for the wellknown professional wrestling promotion since he was a teenager and with the help of his brother Matt ran a local promotion known as OMEGA in the late 1990s. As a tag-team wrestler, Hardy and his brother held the WWE’s tag team championship six times. He was also a three-time holder of the promotion’s heavyweight championship. Sheriff’s deputies executed a search warrant at Hardy’s home in September after receiving information developed by the Fayetteville Police Department. — from staff reports

popcorn. David Montgomery, executive director for Downtown Sanford, Inc., said he was pleased with the turnout; he estimated 600-700 people attended the tree lighting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our biggest crowd ever,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is our ninth event, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s downtownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s signature Christmas event.â&#x20AC;? While waiting for the tree to be lit, anxious children chased each other across the grass, slipping in the mud and jumping excitedly in anticipation of Santaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arrival. J.J. Cuff of Sanford pushed his granddaughter Olive, 4 months, in her stroller as they waited. It was the first time he had attended the event, â&#x20AC;&#x153;mainly because of her,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is her first Christmas,â&#x20AC;? the grandfather said proudly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be able to appreciate it, but sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see the lights.â&#x20AC;?

You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a good â&#x20AC;&#x153;Christmas Carolâ&#x20AC;? without a solid Scrooge, and Randy Rime brings a curmudgeoness to the role that makes him unlikeable. His speech is crackly, and in the few musical numbers he is involved in, his voice is less than remarkable. But heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s believable, especially his gradual transformation from miser to â&#x20AC;&#x153;born againâ&#x20AC;? with each ghostly visit. And Makani McKenzie is adorable as Tiny Tim (yes, a little girl as a little boy), and her solo is touching ... bringing a tender moment to an otherwise joyous and upbeat production. With a cast this big, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tough to point out all of the solid performances, but a few do rise above the rest.

I suppose I have a positive bias toward Dalton, seeing that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a graduate of Stephen F. Austin State University, my college back in Texas. And something should be said of the several children â&#x20AC;&#x201D; both teens and pre-teens â&#x20AC;&#x201D; involved in this production who keep up well with their adult counterparts. Another star is the set (and costume design) as scene changes from Scroogeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bedroom to a snow-covered street are performed flawlessly. Kudos to scenic artist Tom Barker and scenic designer Eileen Greenbaum-Mintz. As you can tell, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve failed to give a description of the plot, as I feel there are very few who arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t familiar with this timeless tale. What is interesting (and refreshing) is that this production chooses to keep the religious overtones that were prominent in Dickensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; story.

Sure, there are a few missteps ... but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re minor and not worth mentioning in this limited space. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important is that throughout December, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll walk out of Temple Theatre humming carols and feeling â&#x20AC;&#x153;Christmassyâ&#x20AC;? after seeing this production. Hot chocolate stirred with a candy cane will sound like the perfect follow-up. In other words, there will be very few â&#x20AC;&#x153;bah humbugs.â&#x20AC;? And isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that the point?

Cop says career has been cut short

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; One of two civilian police officers who brought down the Army psychiatrist accused of going on a shooting rampage at Fort Hood said her wounds from the attack will cut short her career as street police officer. Sgt. Kimberly Munley said doctors have told her she needs a total knee replacement, a

surgery set for January, but that her new knee is likely to wear out sooner if she runs or carries the 15- to 25-pound gear pack required by her job. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I do want to stay in law enforcement. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not going to be able to do what I did before, which is basically work the street,â&#x20AC;? she told Wilmington, N.C., television station WECT on Wednesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s go-

ing to give me another avenue to look in as far as possibly teaching and instructing.â&#x20AC;? Fort Hood officials said Thursday that Munley, 34, who was shot in the leg and hand, has not started the process to determine if sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s physically able to do her former job. Munley and Sgt. Mark Todd, another civilian officer in Fort Hoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

police force, are credited with shooting Maj. Nidal Hasan to end the Nov. 5 shooting spree on the Texas Army post, about 150 miles southwest of Fort Worth. Todd, 42, was not injured and is already back at work. Hasan remains hospitalized in a San Antonio military hospital but is paralyzed from his wounds, said his attorney John Galligan.

RALEIGH (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; North Carolina transportation officials say a security fence will be added at a highway bridge crossing in Raleigh where a man fell to his death while trying to help people involved in a threecar wreck. Multiple media outlets reported Thursday the fence will be put along the westbound bridge of Interstate 440 where 33-year-old Carroll Lee Eames Jr. died Nov. 27 after he leaped over a barrier to avoid oncoming traffic. Department of Transportation Secretary Gene Conti said in a speech at the Crabtree Rotary Club his agency continues to investigate the accident. The fence is expected to cost up to $50,000 and be installed by Feb. 1. Eames fell through a gap between the bridges on I440 over Crabtree Creek.

Attorneys going to court over â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sentences SHELBY (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Attorneys are set to argue in a North Carolina court why they think a man given a life sentence more than three decades ago should not qualify for good behavior credits that could set him free early. The case of Wilbur William Folston is scheduled for a hearing Thursday in Shelby. Folston is one of more than two dozen inmates that North Carolina officials prepared for release this fall after state courts agreed that their â&#x20AC;&#x153;lifeâ&#x20AC;? sentences were only 80 years because of a quirky law that was in place in the 1970s. Gov. Beverly Perdue later blocked the release of the inmates and argued that they should never have received good behavior credits that cut sentences in half.

Oh, deer! Woman OK after encounter on N.C. sidewalk


Bay Breeze

Brewer was opening the jewelry store she co-owns with her husband when one deer passed by. Then she says so many deer appeared that she couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t move. Brewer doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remember the deer stepping on her Saturday. But she does recall being eye-level with them before she hit the sidewalk, saying she thinks the deer were as afraid of her as she was of them. Others told her that one deer kicked her several feet in the air before the rest trampled her.

NATION BRIEFS Obama pushes to turn around failing schools

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Obama administration will spend at least $3.5 billion to push local officials around the country to close failing schools and reopen them with new teachers and principals. Education Secretary Arne Duncan hopes to see the 5,000 worst-performing schools, about 1 percent of all U.S. schools, turned around in five years. The administration is beefing up the federal school turnaround program, which was created under the No Child Left Behind law championed by former President George W. Bush. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a country, we need to get into the turnaround business,â&#x20AC;? Duncan said in a statement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Adults need to have the courage to make these tough decisions and do right by our kids.â&#x20AC;? The president doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the power to close and reopen schools himself. That authority rests with local school districts and states.

Pelosi: Bailout money to fund jobs initiative

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The top Democrat on Capitol Hill said Thursday that Congress will tap unused funds from the Wall Street bailout to pay for new spending on roads and bridges and save the jobs of firefighters, teachers and other public employees. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said money from the bailout should be used to pay for jobs legislation that would funnel billions of dollars to road, bridge and other infrastructure projects and also help struggling state and local governments retain public employees. She also promised help for small businesses reeling from a credit crunch.

After talks with the administration officials such as Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, congressional Democrats are eying up to $70 billion in funds from last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $700 billion Wall Street bailout to finance job-related legislation, a House Democratic aide said. The aide required anonymity to describe the private talks.

House votes to extend tax on wealthy estates WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The House voted Thursday to indefinitely extend a 45 percent inheritance tax on estates larger than $3.5 million, canceling a one-year repeal of the tax set to begin next month. A similar effort is afoot in the Senate, but the health care debate there could preclude action on the estate tax before Congress breaks later this month for holidays. There are also disagreements among senators over the tax rate and the size of estates that should be exempt, further clouding the billâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prospects. Lawmakers, however, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to delay action until next year because they are wary of enacting retroactive tax changes. Under the House bill, estates smaller than $3.5 million would continue to be exempt from the tax. Married couples, with a little estate planning, could exempt a total of $7 million. That leaves less than 1 percent of all estates subject to the tax.

Medicare cuts stay in Senate bill WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Casting its first votes on revamping the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health care system, the Senate rejected a Republican bid Thursday to stave off Medicare cuts and approved safeguards for coverage of mammograms and other preventive tests for women. The first round of votes ended with a fragile Democratic coalition hanging together. Senators voted 58-42 to reject an amendment by Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., that would have stripped more than $400 billion in Medicare cuts from the nearly $1 trillion measure. It would have sent the entire 2,074-page bill back to the Senate Finance Committee for a redo. Republicans said the proposed cuts to health insurance plans and medical providers mean seniors in the popular Medicare Advantage

program will lose benefits. And they predicted lawmakers will ultimately back away from the cuts, once seniors start feeling the brunt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Medicare is already in trouble. The program needs to be fixed, not raided to create another new government program,â&#x20AC;? said Republican leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky. Democrats said seniors will not lose any guaranteed benefits. The cuts â&#x20AC;&#x201D; amounting to a 2 percent slowdown in spending â&#x20AC;&#x201D; will help keep Medicare solvent by making it more efficient, they contended. And they pointed out that the health care overhaul bill improves preventive care and prescription coverage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My colleagues on the Republican side have resorted to the politics of fear to preserve a broken health care system,â&#x20AC;? said Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;What weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hearing are scare tactics designed to mislead seniors.â&#x20AC;? AARP, the seniorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lobby, threw its weight behind the Democrats. The votes Thursday came after three days of angry debate in which Democrats accused Republicans of stalling to try to kill the bill, and Republicans protested that they were only exercising their right to give the complex legislation full scrutiny. The first votes were held under a special agreement requiring 60 votes to prevail. That tested the coalition Democrats are counting on to move President Barack Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s signature issue. The margin was close on the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health amendment, which aims to safeguard coverage of mammograms and preventive screening test under a revamped system.

The 61-39 vote on a provision by Democrat Barbara Mikulski of Maryland and Republican Olympia Snowe of Maine was the first substantive ballot in an acrimonious debate that promises to go on for weeks. After that will come an amendment to restrict abortion funding, except in cases of rape, incest or to save the life of the mother. Drafted by an abortion opponent â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Democratic Sen. Ben Nelson of Nebraska â&#x20AC;&#x201D; it looms as a major challenge for the Democrats. Though Democrats have 60 votes in the Senate, two Democratic senators voted against the Mikulski amendment â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Russ Feingold of Wisconsin and Nelson. The measure was saved by three Republicans voting in favor â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Snowe, David Vitter of Louisiana and Susan Collins of Maine.

10A / Friday, December 4, 2009 / The Sanford Herald STATE DINNER CRASHERS


Secret Service puts three on leave

WASHINGTON (AP) — The head of the Secret Service asserted Thursday that the security breach at last week’s White House state dinner was an aberration but has put three uniformed officers on leave. President Barack Obama says his confidence in the agency remains unshaken. The chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, Rep. Bennie Thompson, said the country is fortunate the affair didn’t end in a “night of horror.” Meantime in an interview at the White House, Obama said that even though “the system didn’t work the way it was supposed to” last week, he still

feels safe in the mansion and trust the agency fully to protect not only him but his wife and children. “I could not have more confidence in the Secret Service,” Obama told USA TODAY’s Richard Wolf and Justin Hyde of the Detroit Free Press. Appearing before Thompson’s panel for questioning, Sullivan acknowledged his officers made mistakes and that the Secret Service must have a “100 percent” performance record. Thompson, D-Miss., also said that Congress needs to talk not only to Tareq and Michaele Salahi, the couple who got in without invitations, but also to White

House social secretary Desiree Rogers. All three have declined to appear. Thompson said he is likely to authorize a subpoena for the Salahis to testify. Rep. Pete King, the panel’s ranking Republican, accused the White House of “stonewalling” in not permitting Rogers to appear. The New York congressman said he thinks the White House is either afraid of something or doesn’t want to take any heat for last week’s incident. Thompson said at midday that the Salahis could be cited for contempt of Congress if they continue to shun the committee’s request that they proceed. He said he has asked staff to pre-

pare subpoenas for the pair, and said “my door remains open.” King indicated he would continue to press for Rogers to appear as well. The two appeared to differ on whether Rogers should be subpoenaed. Thompson said at the outset: “This hearing is not about crashing a party at the White House. Nor is it about wannabe celebrities.” He said the purpose is to better protect the president. The Salahis have been trying to land a part on a Bravo reality show, “The Real Housewives of D.C.,” and were filmed by the TV show around town as they prepared for the White House dinner.

Ind. teen charged with murder in brother’s death

RISING SUN, Ind. (AP) — An Indiana prosecutor says a 17year-old charged with murder in the strangulation death of his 10-year-old brother had fantasized about killing someone. Dearborn-Ohio County Prosecutor Aaron Negangard (NEEG-an-gard) says Andrew Conley of Rising Sun has been charged as an adult and will have an initial hearing Friday. Negangard says Conley admitted killing his 10-yearold brother, Conner Conley, on Sunday and dumping his body near a park in Rising Sun, about 20 miles southwest of Cincinnati, Ohio. A sheriff’s deputy found the body Sunday night. Negangard describes Conley as a cold-blooded killer and says he might seek life without parole. An attorney for Conley couldn’t be immediately found.

Cops: 4 kids hurt in crash at Indiana day care center INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Two robbery suspects fleeing police lost control of their sport utility vehicle and crashed into a day care center Thursday, injuring four children and an employee in a shower of bricks and other debris, police said. About 18 children were inside the Stepping Stones Child Care when the SUV slammed into the brick building on the city’s north side about 12:15 p.m., Lt. Jeff Duhamell said. Kara Hardister, who runs the church-owned day care, said the crash sent bricks and debris flying into a room for 3-year-olds just before their afternoon nap time. The car burst into flames shortly after the crash, but officers quickly extinguished the fire. One of the four children was in critical condition but stable at Methodist Hospital, while the other three had non-lifethreatening injuries, Duhamell said.

Oregon tree cutters safe after 2 nights in snow MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) — An Oregon couple hunting for a Christmas tree in mountains near the California border spent two days stuck in more than a foot of snow before freeing their all-wheel drive vehicle and returning home Thursday morning. Jennifer and Keith Lee told Jackson County sheriff’s deputies their Subaru got highcentered on a remote road leading into California on the south side of Mount Ashland. The couple had taken blankets and water bottles, but they didn’t have much food, she said.

Georgia speaker resigns after lobbyist affair claim ATLANTA (AP) — Georgia’s powerful House speaker resigned Thursday after a suicide attempt and allegations by his ex-wife of an affair with a lobbyist. Glenn Richardson, the state’s first GOP speaker since Reconstruction, had won sympathy from even his political enemies when he revealed last month that he attempted suicide by swallowing sleeping pills. But then his ex-wife went on TV and accused him of having “a full-out affair” with a lobbyist while they were still married. Richardson did not address that allegation in a brief statement issued through the House communications office in which he said he will leave both his position as speaker and his House seat on Jan. 1. He did mention his recent admission that he has grappled with depression.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Everybodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; misses the irony mark

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fineâ&#x20AC;? succeeds in evoking a spirit of family reconciliation and yuletide sentimentality. Outweighing all of that, however, is an overriding sense of dĂŠjĂ  vu. Robert De Niro plays Frank, a retiree trying to adjust to a life of menial solitude, unmoored from the outside world by his wifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death eight months earlier. Disconnected from his grown children geographically and emotionally, Frank embarks on a road trip to visit and, hopefully, reconnect with them. Casual observers may note similarities to Alexander Payneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s About Schmidt, including De Niro and Jack Nicholsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s splendidly restrained performances. Officially, Everybodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fine is a remake of Giuseppe Tornatoreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1990 Italian drama, â&#x20AC;?Stanno Tutti Bene,â&#x20AC;? starring Marcello Mastroianni. This update from director Kirk Jones (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Waking Ned Devineâ&#x20AC;?) amps the mawkishness to nearly oppressive levels, piling angst over growing old atop family dysfunction and the deaths of loved ones. Indeed, only the performances by the A-list cast keep this from dissolving into Hallmark Hall of Fame holidaythemed treacle. Frank is the sort of

everyman who shops for expensive wine at a supermarket and haggles over the price of everything from gas grills to Christmas trees. Clad and accessorized in nondescript browns, he also epitomizes certain men â&#x20AC;&#x201D; especially older and working class â&#x20AC;&#x201D; who are laden with tender feelings toward loved ones but unwilling or unsure how to express them. The way he greets his children is illuminating: His daughters with awkward hugs and his son with a handshake. As the film opens, Frank is eagerly preparing for his four childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first visit since his wifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funeral: David the painter; Robert the musician (Sam Rockwell); Amy (Kate Beckinsale), a hard-charging Chicago

ad executive; and Rosie (Drew Barrymore), a Las Vegas dancer. They all cancel at the last minute, however, prompting Frankâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cross-country odyssey. Until the end, the script is furtive about the actual reason the children choose to stay away. But, it strongly implies throughout that they were far more connected to their late mother than their supportive but demanding father. In one affecting scene, Frank visits Robert during orchestra practice and, even in the midst of their reunion, is unable to stifle his disappointment that Robert has chosen to play percussion instead of pursuing a career as a conductor. Each child carries skeletons and imperfections he or she is reluctant to share. But,

one problem is that the children are not allowed to be honest with their father; instead, Jones utilizes a bizarre, clumsily dream sequence to help Frank â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and the audience â&#x20AC;&#x201D; finally puts the pieces together. The actors carry out their roles well, and De Niroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interaction with each costar is pitch-perfect. However, there is a disconnect between the childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dismissive, sometimes callous treatment of their father and the onscreen Frank. We are merely informed about Frankâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s domineering parenting without being provided any glimpse into that part of his persona (unlike, for example, Royal Tenenbaum). The result is an incomplete narrative that engenders a festering dislike for Frankâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s children, who probably donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really deserve our malice. Of course, this lack of context is probably intentional since it tidily clears away emotional debris for an obvious, tear-jerking plot turn and a Norman Rockwell-esque denouement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fineâ&#x20AC;? is supposed to be an ironic affirmation. Trouble is, by the time Christmas (and the closing credits) arrives, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to detect the irony.

Oprah visits White House for Christmas special WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Oprah and Obama, teamed up again. The billionaire talk show host descended on the White House on Thursday, accompanied by a giant Winfrey array of personnel and equipment, to interview President Barack Obama for her upcoming primetime Christmas television special. In addition to a solo interview with the president, Winfrey conducted a joint conversation with the president and his wife, Michelle, and filmed a tour of the White House holiday decorations for their first year in office. She has interviewed Obama on other occasions, but not as president. She also shared the cover of her magazine for the first time with Michelle Obama, in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s April issue, which also featured a long interview with the first lady about decorating, helping women, parenting philosophy, life in the White House and other topics. Winfrey has been in the Obama White House on other occasions. In addition to coming for the Feb. 17 interview with the first lady for her magazine, Winfrey was on the guest list for an inaugural reception. Winfreyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relationship with the Obamas dates to their days in Chicago. Most notably, she lent her celebrity status to Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

The network â&#x20AC;&#x153;decided not to move forwardâ&#x20AC;? with booking Lambert on Kimmelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dec. 17 show, ABC said in a statement. ABC spokeswoman Patrick Preblick said the talent lineup for the New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eve special has not been announced. Lambert addressed the two bookings on his Twitter account on Wednesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes, sadly, friends, ABC has cancelled my appearances on Kimmel and NYE,â&#x20AC;? wrote Lambert. He added, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s focus on being positive!â&#x20AC;? In the meantime, all is not lost. NBC says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be a guest on â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Jay Leno Showâ&#x20AC;? on Dec 21. And heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interviewed by Barbara Walters on her â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most Fascinating People of 2009â&#x20AC;? special â&#x20AC;&#x201D; airing next Wednesday on ABC.

Obama calls for new ideas for creating jobs

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; President Barack Obama on Thursday said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d heard many â&#x20AC;&#x153;exciting ideas and proposalsâ&#x20AC;? from participants at a White House sponsored jobs forum and said he hoped some could be put into action quickly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This has been a tough year, with a lot of uncertainty,â&#x20AC;? Obama said as he wrapped up a half-day brainstorming session with some of the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top CEOs, small business and union leaders and economists. He said he welcomed the suggestions as well as some â&#x20AC;&#x153;good, hardheaded feedbackâ&#x20AC;? from some people who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always share his views, including the former top economic

adviser to 2008 Republican presidential nominee Sen. John McCain, economist Douglas Holtz-Eakin, who also addressed a rival GOP jobs forum earlier in the day. The president said there were some ideas that could be put to work almost immediately and other ideas that will become part of legislation for Congress to consider. He listed â&#x20AC;&#x153;moving forward on an aggressive agenda for energy efficiency and weatherizationâ&#x20AC;? as a prime candidate for quick action. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no question that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s difficult out there right now,â&#x20AC;? Obama said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Digging ourselves out of the hole we have dug into is not going to be easy.â&#x20AC;?

But he said he puts a lot of faith in American ingenuity and industry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go back to business as usual,â&#x20AC;? he said. Obama had challenged his audience to help him come up with innovative ideas for putting millions of Americans back to work, saying he wants the â&#x20AC;&#x153;biggest bang for the buck.â&#x20AC;?

He spoke the day before the Labor Department was to report unemployment figures for November. In October, the rate climbed to 10.2 percent â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the highest since the early 1980s â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and forecasters expected the November figure to be around the same level as Octoberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, or worse.

PETERSON GETS 109 MPH SPEEDING TICKET MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota Vikings star running back Adrian Peterson could lose his driver’s license after police clocked him driving at 109 mph — nearly twice the posted speed limit — on a suburban Minneapolis highway last weekend. Peterson told The Associated Press on Thursday that he “got a little speeding ticket. I need to be more aware of the speed I was going and not let it happen again.” Peterson was pulled over just before 8:30 p.m. Saturday while driving his BMW in a 55-mph zone on state Highway 62 — a normally busy stretch of road known as the Crosstown.

MLB BRAVES ADD TO BULLPEN WITH SAITO ATLANTA (AP) — The Braves made another move to strengthen their pitching staff Thursday, agreeing to a oneyear contract with right-handed reliever Takashi Saito. Saito, who turns 40 in February, has 83 saves in four major league seasons after a long career in Japan. He made the NL All-Star team in 2007, when he had 39 saves for the Los Angeles Dodgers. Last season, the right-hander went 3-3 with two saves and a 2.43 ERA in a setup role for the Boston Red Sox.

MLB POLANCO, PHILLIES AGREE TO 3-YEAR DEAL PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Placido Polanco returned to the Philadelphia Phillies on Thursday, agreeing to an $18 million, three-year contract. The 34-year-old free agent won Gold Gloves at second base for the Detroit Tigers in 2007 and this year but will shift to third base, which hasn’t been his primary position since 2002. He replaces Pedro Feliz, who became a free agent after the Phillies declined his $5.5 million.

NCAA Mangino resigns as kansas coach LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Kansas coach Mark Mangino has resigned two years after leading the Jayhawks to the greatest season in their checkered football history. The university made the announcement Thursday as athletic director Lew Perkins met with players to give them the news. Kansas finished 5-7 in a season marked by an internal investigation into Mangino’s treatment of his players.

Maybe it wasn’t pretty, but Cavaliers will take it By RYAN SARDA

SANFORD — Gaston Collins enjoyed the win for about an hour. Then, he started focusing on Pinecrest. The Southern Lee Cavaliers beat county rival Lee County 4838 on the hardwood Wednesday night at Lee County. The Cavaliers have swept their county rivals for the fourth straight year. With Pinecrest in town on Thursday night for another nonconference battle with the Cavaliers, Collins was moving on from the team’s second victory of the season and is preparing for the undefeated Patriots. The results of Thursday’s game were not available by presstime. “It was a crucial win for us,” said Collins, the second-year coach of the Cavaliers’ second victory this season over the Yellow Jackets. “It might not have

SANFORD — They were ranked. Then they weren’t. Back-to-back losses to Division-2 Guilford Tech and the North Carolina Tar Heels’ junior varsity team knocked the Central Carolina Cougars out of the No. 10 spot in the NJCAA Division III Top 10 basketball poll. But Doug Connor isn’t worried. He knows his team better than anyone, and he still believes in his Cougars. “I’m still feeling good about this team,” Connor said before his team took the court against the Methodist University junior varsity team on Thursday night. “We’ve played some tough opponents and that’s only going to help us in the long run. The teams we’ve lost to are in higher divisions than us. We’ll be OK.” The Cougars (8-4) defeated the Monarchs 113-73. Adrian Jones led all scorers with 28 points and 14 rebounds. Travis Jackson had 26, Dejan Brown and R.J. McLaughlin also added 11. The game was pretty close early on until Connor made the call for the Cougars to switch to a 3-2 zone midway through the first half. The defensive switch held the Monarchs scoreless for the last nine minutes of the half, allowing the Cougars to take a 20-point cushion into the locker room at halftime. Before Thursday’s win, the Cougars started off the season at 5-1 and became nationally ranked for the first time in the program’s history. They then won just two of their next five games and fell out of the top ten. Following a tough 105-83 loss to the Tar Heels in the Dean Smith Center, the Cougars cruised to a 113-90 victory over Carolina Prep. “We rebounded from that loss against Carolina and just went back to the basics during practice,” said Connor. “We were playing in the Dean Smith Center in front of a loud group of fans. I think we were kind of star struck. But we responded well against Carolina Prep and got back on the right track with a win.” Led by Jackson’s 17.2 points per game, the Cougars have a strong nucleus of talent with four players averaging in double figures. Jones (14.5), McLaughlin (11.0) and Perkins (10.6) are the other key players for the Cougars. “Everyone’s playing their role real well and everyone’s adjusting,” said Connor.

Wait is over for laid-back Moore


CHARLOTTE — Wearing his baseball cap backward, Matt Moore walked into the Carolina locker room Thursday and immediately began joking around with his golfing buddy, kicker Rhys Lloyd If Moore was nervous that

he’s about to make only his fourth career start and his first since 2007, he sure wasn’t showing it. Moore “I think the fact that he is laid back will help him,” Lloyd

said. “Not a whole lot of things bother him.” With Jake Delhomme sidelined with a broken finger on his throwing hand, Moore is preparing to take over the Panthers’ struggling offense Sunday against Tampa Bay. It’ll come after a long wait in a career that’s required patience. He didn’t start in high

school until his senior year, changed colleges, briefly contemplated playing professional baseball, went undrafted, was cut by the Dallas Cowboys, didn’t throw a single pass last season and has gone more than 23 months between starts.

ACC Championship

Clemson, Tech look to end title droughts ATLANTA (AP) — Derrick Morgan can’t remember the last time Georgia Tech won an Atlantic Coast Conference championship. Not that he should. He was a 1-year-old when the Yellow Jackets captured their lone ACC title in 1990, on the way to an unbeaten season and a share of the national championship. “That’s a long time ago,” Morgan said, shaking his head. Ditto for Clemson, a one-time ACC powerhouse that hasn’t finished on top of the league since 1991. The No. 25 Tigers are just as eager to break their long

drought when they face the 12th-ranked Yellow Jackets in the conference championship game Saturday night at Tampa, Fla. “This is absolutely vital to us as a program,” said Tigers offensive lineman Thomas Austin. “We have a winning tradition here at Clemson. That is something we take pride in. To have not won a conference championship in 18 years, we see this as a unique opportunity for us. We need to capitalize on it.” In a sense, this is a bit of a throwback game. The Tigers once dominated the ACC, winning seven titles from 1978-91 (as well as

the national championship in ’81). Georgia Tech was a five-time Southeastern Conference champion and rising through the ranks in the ACC by the late ’80s. Then came Florida State. The Seminoles joined the conference in 1992, and the balance of power shifted dramatically. Coach Bobby Bowden’s team won or shared the top spot in 12 of its first 14 seasons. Then, just as Florida State began to fade, Virginia Tech joined the ACC in 2004 and immediately took over a leading role, winning the title in three of its first five years. Clemson (8-4) went

as Tre ristmH h C Are ere es

through hard times under Tommy West, including a last-place finish in 1998, and tried to chase down Florida State by hiring Bowden’s son, Tommy. There were some promising seasons that never quite lived up to expectations, and Tommy Bowden was dumped midway through last season. Led by neophyte head coach Dabo Swinney, the Tigers got off to a 2-3 start this year that had the faithful grumbling. But six straight wins silenced Swinney’s critics and carried his team to a division title. One more win will bring the title Clemson really wants. “People remember champions,” said C.J. Spiller, the team’s star running back. “One of the reasons I came back for my

senior year was to try to win a championship. That’s something we haven’t done around here in 18 years. I wanted to try to help this team accomplish that. If we can win the league, people will know they have something to fear when they’re playing Clemson.” Georgia Tech also has long-term aspirations. The Yellow Jackets made it to the title game in 2006, losing a yawner to Wake Forest, but that was a mere blip in the largely mediocre Chan Gailey era. Second-year coach Paul Johnson sees no reason his team can’t compete for championships on a regular basis, and he’s spreading that message to his players. They’re not looking for another one-off shot at a ring; they want to build something that lasts a while. 1732 South Horner Blvd. 3ANFORD .#s

The Sanford Herald / Friday, December 4, 2009 / 3B

Players tee it up without Tiger THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A potentially explosive news conference with an alleged mistress was canceled Thursday and more details trickled out about the car accident that started all the trouble for Tiger Woods. The news conference in Los Angeles for Rachel Uchitel, the woman who denied a tabloid report about an affair with Woods, was canceled about an hour before it was to begin. High-profile attorney Gloria Allred, who was to make a statement about Uchitelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relationship with golfâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s No. 1 player, said it was called

off because of â&#x20AC;&#x153;unforeseen circumstances.â&#x20AC;? Allred said she would have no further comment. For the first time since last Friday, when Woods ran his SUV into a fire hydrant and a tree outside his Florida home, there were no news conferences involving police nor any statements from Woods on his Web site. His last one was Wednesday, when he issued a statement conceding that he had â&#x20AC;&#x153;let my family down.â&#x20AC;? That followed a report in Us Weekly magazine of a cocktail waitress claiming to have had a 31-month affair with Woods.


beat teams with our speed and our quickness. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a lot of guards and forwards on this team and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got some speed.â&#x20AC;? The Cougars donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t begin Region 10 Conference play until January. Connor says playing the likes of Guilford Tech and the North Carolina jayvees will only increase his teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chances of doing well in conference. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At this level, you have to play up to get better,â&#x20AC;? said Connor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Playing teams like the Carolina and Guilford Tech are only going to help us down the stretch. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m really confident about our chances in conference this year, I really am. We want to play in the national tournament at the end of the season; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about. Our schedule is going to help us get there.â&#x20AC;?

Continued from Page 1B

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anyone can step up on any given night. Anyone can be our leader and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how I know that we have a good team.â&#x20AC;? The one problem for the Cougars comes in the middle. The tallest players on the roster are former Southern Lee standout Anthony Newby and Kyle Overstreet. Both are listed at 6-foot-6, but they are both freshman and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have much experience. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our center is going to have to come by committee,â&#x20AC;? said Connor, who expects to have 2008-09 All-American Lemarte McGhee back on the roster in January. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to

been the prettiest game to watch, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take it. Now, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to carry this intensity over and use it against Pinecrest.â&#x20AC;? Southern Lee was led by Darius Gillâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game-high 11 points. A.J. Jackson added nine. Sherrod Toomer had seven points off the bench. Ace Chalmers also added seven points, all of which came in the second half. Josh Mellette scored just two points but had six rebounds in the victory. The defense of Southern Lee is what won the game. The Cavaliers played a 2-3 zone the majority of the game and kept Lee County off the boards. The defense forced the Yellow Jackets to turn the ball over 20 times, including nine times in the fourth quarter. The Patriots (3-0) ae fresh off a 95-78 victory over Red Springs on Tuesday night. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re very athletic and they play hard,â&#x20AC;? said Collins. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really good at slashing to the basket. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have to play well.â&#x20AC;? For the Yellow Jackets (1-4), Wednesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loss was their fourth straight. In the losing streak, the Yellow Jackets have

struggled in one quarter in each game. In the first meeting against the Cavs, it was a three-point third quarter that doomed the Jackets. This time against the Cavaliers, it was the first quarter where the Yellow Jackets struggled. The Jackets were held to just six points at the end of the quarter and trailed 13-6. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve lost our last four games the exact same way,â&#x20AC;? said Lee County coach Reggie Peace. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t figured out a way to play 32 complete minutes. We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford the quarters where we score four points, three points, or six points.â&#x20AC;? The Yellow Jackets, who now trail the annual series with the county rival 8-1, were led by Russell Tatumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nine points. Donte Rigsby and Dequan Swann each had seven points. Swann also snagged down five rebounds. The game, although it was low scoring, still had its fair share of drama attached to it. With the Cavaliers ahead by three with 1:35 to go, Jackson buried a jump shot and was fouled. He missed the bonus foul shot, but grabbed his own rebound with the 43-38 edge. Later, Chalmers hit two free throws to make it 46-38, then

stole an inbounds pass and scored a layup as time expired. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have got to do a better job on our rebounding,â&#x20AC;? said Peace. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It comes down to the fourth quarter and we stop hitting shots and we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t grab rebounds. Until we can get over that hump, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to continue to struggle.â&#x20AC;? The Cavalier defense held the Yellow Jackets to just 4of-19 shooting from 3-point range. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t shoot it well at all,â&#x20AC;? said Peace. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get the ball to go down both on the inside and the outside. I give Southern Lee a lot of credit for their defense.â&#x20AC;? Now that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got his fourth win as a coach against the county rival, Collins hopes that his team comes out with the same enthusiasm against the Patriots. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For some reason our guys always play extremely hard against Lee County High School,â&#x20AC;? quipped Collins. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This win was good for our confidence but we need to build off that momentum. We need the intensity to carry over into our other games as well. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m eager to see how we come out against Pinecrest after getting a win against a well-coached Lee County team.â&#x20AC;?

Man’s stubborn silence causes family to panic

HOROSCOPES Universal Press Syndicate

Happy Birthday: You may have to do a few extra things in order to win favors this year. Pick and choose your battles wisely. Consider your early years and, if you have gotten off track, do your best to start over. It’s never too late to begin again or to give your all to something you believe in. Your numbers are 3, 12, 16, 21, 32, 34, 42 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Put forth your best effort and you will reach your professional and financial goals. This is a great day to make some personal alterations to boost your confidence and enable you to do things that you may have been reluctant to try in the past. Domestic issues may surface. 2 stars TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Taking time out to make some much-needed changes at home will pay off. You can add value to something you have to offer. A change in a friendship will allow you the freedom to try something new. 4 stars GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You will be faced with far more than you anticipated, making it difficult to carry out your promises. A work-related opportunity will open up, however, compromising your code of ethics may be requested. 3 stars CANCER (June 21-July 22): Whether you travel physically, mentally or down the information highway, the end result will be the same. What you learn and the people you meet will enable you to flex your muscles in a sticky situation that needs immediate attention. 3 stars LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Socializing will be your thing but refrain from divulging any information that may compromise you late in the day. Keep things light and playful. Romance or improving your current relationship will lead to a brighter future. 3 stars VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Personal problems will complicate your life.


Your indifference will be what saves you if someone tries to trick you into doing something you don’t want to do. Make positive changes to your personal life, regardless of what others do. 4 stars LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don’t give in to peer pressure. If something doesn’t fit your lifestyle, back away. It’s more important that you finish what you start and strive to reach your goals than it is to satisfy someone else’s whims. 2 stars SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Turn on your Scorpio charm. Your fascination with the people you meet will bring about a very special connection, changing your way of thinking and your course of action. Someone you love will broaden your awareness. 5 stars SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Experience may count but so will fresh ideas and the desire to do your best. Take what information you can from the wise and rework what you learn so that it takes on your personality. Confidence and consistency will win in the end. 3 stars CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Take what you want and keep moving. It’s slowing down that will give someone the chance to derail your plans or ideas. Love is in the stars so don’t waste time if someone special wants your undivided attention. 3 stars AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Ask someone you feel comfortable with about a problem you are having at work or with your finances. An honest answer may not be what you want to hear but it will help you get back on the road to recovery. 3 stars PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Tread carefully. Not everything will be as it appears. An older or younger person in your life who has a tough situation to deal with will trigger an emotional change. Your support will make a difference. 5 stars

DEAR ABBY: I have been married to “Mick” for 22 years — most of them happy. My problem is his communication skills. I have always had a hard time contacting him. He has a cell phone, but won’t take it out of his vehicle. Recently, our daughter came home from college. We had planned to go to dinner with her and her boyfriend. When Mick didn’t show up, I tried without success to contact him. My daughter tried and then my son did, too. This went on for an hour and a half. We were worried sick, so we started calling his friends and co-workers — anyone who might know his whereabouts. Abby, I have a serious heart condition that could send me to the hospital at any time. Mick finally called back and said he had gotten distracted talking with an old friend. He acted like we were crazy for being concerned, and insists he did nothing wrong. All I have ever asked is that my husband and kids give me a quick call to let me know if they’re going to be late so I won’t worry. My son and daughter do it, but Mick refuses. He says he’s the breadwinner, and he should not have to answer to anyone. I have put up with this for years, but now I have had enough. What do you think? — SICK AND TIRED OF IT, IN SOUTH CAROLINA DEAR SICK AND TIRED OF IT: Candidly, I think Mick is acting

be a three- or four-day stay, but it’s now into the fifth week. They always claim to be right on the edge of leaving. Marge enjoys having her daughter near her, but this is stressful for me. They sleep until noon every day and stay up late. They enjoy all that we have earned throughout our lives, and offer nothing in the way of rent. I am not allowed to complain. I have been given the option to say “Go,” but I know it will cause hard feelings from them and Marge. I am to the point where I’m ready to move out. — TRAPPED IN THEIR HOUSE

more like a rebellious teenager rather than a caring husband. Because he has been this way for 22 years, I seriously doubt he is capable of change. That’s why I also think you should talk to your attorney about adding another family member to your Advance Directive for Health Care, in case you have a medical emergency and your husband is — as usual — unreachable. Please give this the serious consideration it deserves because your life could depend on it. o DEAR ABBY: I married “Marge” 18 months ago. It was a second marriage for both of us. We agreed to sell our homes and buy something together. Mine sold and now I’m in her house. Things were going fine until Marge’s daughter and son-in-law moved back in. It was supposed to

DEAR TRAPPED: More troubling than the fact you appear to have been invaded by freeloaders is that you say you are “not allowed” to voice your feelings about it. Marriage is supposed to be a partnership of equals, and if one partner is not happy, healthy couples work out an agreeable solution together. Because you have been unable to do this, I recommend marriage counseling before you pack your bags. With counseling I’m hoping you and Marge can form a united front in telling “the kids” they have a deadline to be out instead of you being forced into the role of “bad guy.” Moving out should be your last option, because once you do, the move may be permanent.



‘Elf’ jailed over dynamite hoax on Ga. mall Santa

Burleson is about 10 miles south of Fort Worth.

MORROW, Ga. (AP) — A man dressed as an elf is jailed after police in Georgia say he told a mall Santa that he was carrying dynamite. Police say Southlake Mall in suburban Atlanta was evacuated but no explosives were found. Morrow police arrested 45-year-old William C. Caldwell III, who was being held without bond Thursday in the Clayton County jail. He was not part of the mall’s Christmas staff. Police say Caldwell got in line Wednesday evening to have his picture taken with Santa Claus. Police say when Caldwell reached the front of the line, he told Santa he had dynamite in his bag. Santa called mall security and Caldwell was arrested. Caldwell faces several charges, including having hoax devices and making terroristic threats.

Fla. teen allegedly attacks dad for loud snoring

Texas couple say hen laid egg with cross on it BURLESON, Texas (AP) — A Fort Worth-area couple said one of their hens laid an egg with a cross on the end of it. Pam and Tracy Norrell of Burleson, who displayed the odd-shaped egg, said they believe it’s a sign of encouragement during the holiday season. Tracy Norrell said he was gathering eggs Monday night when one he picked up seemed to be unusual, not smooth like other eggs. The misshapen egg has an indentation on one end with what appears to be a cross on it. The Norrells said eating the egg is not an option.


OLDSMAR, Fla.(AP) — A Florida teenager has been charged with assaulting his father, reportedly because the man was snoring too loudly. The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office reported that the teen, 18, first threw a magazine at his father, who was sleeping on a living room couch Tuesday evening. When that didn’t work, deputies said the teen pushed his father onto the floor and punched him in the face. The father was checked out at a nearby hospital as a precaution. The teen was arrested and charged with domestic battery. He was released from jail Wednesday.

Would-be thief sends merciful NY store owner $50 SHIRLEY, N.Y. (AP) — A Long Island convenience store owner who showed mercy to a would-be robber said he’s received an apology note and $50 in the mail. The unsigned note said it was from the man who tried to rob Mohammad Sohail. It said the would-be robber has a new job, a new child, and is staying out of trouble. Sohail is saving the $50 for charity. The bat-wielding man tearfully told Sohail in May that he was trying to feed his family. The rifle-toting businessman gave him $40 and bread, and made him promise never to rob again. The man disappeared when Sohail went to get milk for the family.

Turn to Christ to be assured of heaven Q: Will God give us a second chance after we die to believe in Jesus and go to heaven? I sure hope so, because I’m having too good a time now to bother with God, but I admit I don’t want to go to hell. -- D.H. A: Not one word in the Bible -- not even one -- suggests that there will be a second chance after death for those who have willfully rejected Christ in this life and chosen to shut Him out of their lives. In fact, the most serious mistake you could ever make would be to assume otherwise. Once this life is over, you will go into eternity — either to that place of eternal joy the Bible calls heaven, or that place of eternal sorrow and separation from God that the Bible calls hell. The Bible’s warning is clear: “Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son” (John 3:18). These are solemn words, and I hope you will take them seriously. But listen: Jesus Christ didn’t come to make you miserable; He came to give you life! Right now you think your life is full — but are you sure? I doubt it. If you don’t want anything to do with God in this life, why would you want anything to do with Him in the next? But God loves you, and He put you here for a purpose: To live for Him. Anything less is empty and meaningless. Don’t gamble with your soul, but repent of your sins and open your heart to Christ today. I have never met even one person who regretted coming to Christ — and neither will you.
