Garner Mayor Ronnie Williams said town officials shouldn’t have learned this late of past events Frederick surrounding Bill Frederick, a former Sanford police captain who left 14 years ago

By BILLY BALL bball@sanfordherald.com

GARNER — A top Garner official expressed frustration Thursday that a disgraced former Sanford police officer wasn’t given a more “thorough” background check before he was hired to lead the town’s embattled emergency medical services and rescue team.

in a storm of allegations that he traded police leniency for sexual favors. Frederick was the chief at Garner EMS & Rescue having worked in the agency for 12 years, but he stepped down Tuesday in the wake of an ongoing sexual assault probe on an unidentified rescue employee. “It makes me think that

somebody did not do their job,” Williams said Thursday, two days after Frederick submitted his resignation. It is not known yet whether Frederick’s resignation is linked to reports of a Sept. 1 sexual assault by a Garner EMS employee.

Almanac Today is Friday, Sept. 10, the 253rd day of 2010. There are 112 days left in the year. This day in history: On Sept. 10, 1960, Hurricane Donna, a dangerous Category 4 storm, struck the Florida Keys. (In the days that followed, Donna crossed over the Florida Peninsula and headed northward, subjecting the East Coast to hurricane-force winds; the storm was blamed for 364 deaths.) In 1608, John Smith was elected president of the Jamestown colony council in Virginia. In 1813, an American naval force commanded by Oliver H. Perry defeated the British in the Battle of Lake Erie during the War of 1812. In 1846, Elias Howe received a patent for his sewing machine. In 1919, New York City welcomed home Gen. John J. Pershing and 25,000 soldiers who’d served in the U.S. First Division during World War I. In 1935, Sen. Huey P. Long died in Baton Rouge two days after being shot in the Louisiana state Capitol, allegedly by Dr. Carl Weiss. In 1939, Canada declared war on Nazi Germany as Parliament acted at the behest of Prime Minister Wiliam Lyon Mackenzie King. In 1945, Vidkun Quisling was sentenced to death in Norway for collaborating with the Nazis (he was executed by firing squad in Oct. 1945). In 1963, twenty black students entered Alabama public schools following a standoff between federal authorities and Gov. George C. Wallace.

Bynum codgers turn on Dems in new political ad

RALEIGH (MCT) — Two years ago, the Democrats ran a now-famous TV ad that featured two old-timers in rocking chairs. The spot undercut Republican Sen. Elizabeth Dole’s re-election effort. Now, the same two old gents are back in their rockers and back on TV in an ad that begins airing today. But this time, instead of criticizing Republicans, they’re complaining about how things have gone downhill under the Democrats. In a new ad produced by Republican Sen. Richard Burr’s campaign, the two men rue the day they pulled the Democratic lever. “Boy, we sure got it wrong last election,� the first man says. “Some hope and change,� says the second man. “Bad economy, lost jobs.� The actors sit on a front porch, griping about out-ofcontrol government spending and a growing national debt. They are joined by a young woman, identified in the script as a granddaughter, who says she will end up paying the bill. She says she will support Burr because he will work to cut government and create jobs. Same actors, new porch The ad is a spinoff of a 2008 TV ad produced by the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. That ad featured the same two old-timers talking about how Dole was 93rd in effectiveness and voted with President George W. Bush 92 percent of the time. They argued about whether Dole was 92 or 93 in what was seen as a sly allusion to Dole’s age. The ad, which ran during the summer of 2008, is often credited with damaging Dole’s re-election effort and helping elect Democrat Kay Hagan. The anti-Dole ad was filmed at the Bynum General Store in Chatham County. The new ad was shot at a private residence in Davie County. — Raleigh News & Observer

RICHMOND COUNTY

Country club vows to rebuild

ROCKINGHAM (MCT) — After two years, Richmond Pines Country Club is basically starting over. Two years of management problems has caused the board of directors to take over the operation and are working on improvements to the course and the entire country club. Wayne Barker, board member and the person who has stepped in to take on the overhaul, explains how important it is. “We currently have 70 members,� Barker said. “In two years we’ve lost approximately 90 members because the course became in troubled shape. The country club as a whole needs to show the residents of this county that we have a wonderful course that can be utilized.� The economic downturn has created a crisis for many of the nation’s 4,400 country clubs. At one time, Richmond Pines had close to 300 members and over the years it has fallen to some of the lowest numbers it has seen. Elite clubs like the Augusta National, Shinnecock Hills outside of New York City, and the Riviera Club in Los Angeles remain impervious to the downdraft. Many middle- and lower-tier courses are feeling the crunch and some are even in foreclosure. The National Golf Foundation (NGF) say as many as 15 percent are suffering serious financial problems.

Tax reforms enacted by Congress eliminated or reduced the ability to club members to continue their relationship with many of the clubs. That gave rise to a new breed of public upscale courses that some executives view as more suitable and a cheaper place to entertain clients. The NGF expect at least 400 clubs, possibly with numbers up to 1,000 to close, convert to public pay or be absorbed into healthier clubs. — Richmond County Journal

‘Creative Retirement’ kicks off BY KATHERINE McDONALD Special to The Herald

SANFORD — Retirees and those nearing retirement age got a sample of fun and educational ways to spend some of their leisure time at Central Carolina Community College's kickoff for its new Center for Creative Retirement. Older community members gathered Wednesday at the Dennis A. Wicker Civic Center to hear about the college's programs geared to mature adults and how the Center will offer them opportunities for life-long learning. “What do you want to do?� college President Bud Marchant asked those attending. “That is what will make this Center what it will become.� Marchant said that he was previously involved with centers for creative retirement in both Beaufort and Charleston, S.C. They thrived by responding to the interests and needs of older members of their communities. The college's Department of Continuing Education operates the Center for Creative Retirement. The department already offers vocational, educational and enrichment programs and classes for children, youth and adults. The Center will focus on meeting the needs and interests of retirees and seniors in the college's service area of Chatham, Harnett and Lee counties in collaboration with agencies that also serve this population. Currently, the Center is the programs and activities offered, but the goal is to establish a physical facility as its offerings and community involvement grow. In Lee County alone, the U.S. Census 2009 estimated population was about 60,500, with an estimated 14,000 ages 55 and older, providing a large pool of potential users. “Sanford has a large and growing retirement community,� said Alice Beardsley, of Sanford, who attended the kickoff. “I'm

Ramsey did extensive interviews with surviving crew members who served on the ship during World War II. Singer Vonda Reives, a 2009 Lee County Idol competitor, provided entertainment for the event.

Reives graduated from the college's Associate Degree in Nursing program and went on to obtain a Bachelor's Degree in Nursing from Duke University. She serves as associate minister at Christian Provisions Ministries, in Sanford. “My six-year-old son said to me recently, 'Life is what you make it',� Stelfanie Williams, the college's vice president over the Economic & Community Development Division, told those in attendance. “The college wants to help improve the quality of life in our service area.�

N.C. governor’s power needs limits Greensboro News & Record

F

ormer Gov. Mike Easley sparked a separation of powers dispute more than eight years ago when he shifted money from one fund to another. This week, the state Supreme Court heard arguments in the case that finally could resolve the conflict. The General Assembly sets the state’s budget, and the governor administers it. Those are basic functions of the legislative and executive branches, respectively, and one should not trespass on the other’s area of responsibility

-- except when revenues fall below planned levels. Then the state constitution requires the governor to “effect the necessary economies” to keep the budget in balance. During a 2001-02 budget crisis, Easley took strong actions to avoid a deficit. Among those was moving $80 million from the Highway Trust Fund to the General Fund. Bill Goldston, a former state senator from Eden who helped establish the Highway Trust Fund, and James Harrington, a former transportation secretary, sued the governor, contending he overstepped his

authority. The case moved up and down the court system as technical issues were argued and settled. Last year, a divided decision by the Court of Appeals sided with Goldston and Harrington on one key point: The governor cannot nullify legislative intent. The Supreme Court now takes up the same question. The legal contest focuses on the meaning of “effect the necessary economies.” It’s not clear, but it seems to say the governor should reduce spending when sufficient funds are not available to meet the budget. Shifting money

from one account to another really doesn’t save anything. Instead, it lets the governor rewrite a budget lawfully enacted by the legislature. There’s a lot at stake. In times of economic uncertainty, budget shortfalls are annual events. The governor can always find reason to “effect economies.” If that means he or she can redirect spending priorities, then the legislature’s budget authority is weakened. The court should decide this matter on the side of the legislature and not grant the governor more power.

Stimulus buffer wearing thin

R

ALEIGH — Less than a year from now, the tea partiers and other conservatives who say the federal stimulus was too much, or even unneeded, will get to see what a poststimulus world looks like. One of the more intriguing aspects of state government over the past two years is that, subjected to an economy that was far worse than that of the last recession, cuts to state services were largely of the same magnitude. The reason: the more than $4 billion of federal stimulus money that poured into state coffers since the spring of 2009. It would be hard to argue that those cuts haven’t damaged some areas of state government, and in turn some folks who depend on government services. Both in 2001 — during the last recession — and in 2010, public universities dramatically increased tuition. Decadeold promises of reform to a state system of psychiatric hospitals and mental health services, once given short shrift by legislators, have only partially been kept because of financial woes then and now. Still, unless you depend on some specialized state services, you probably haven’t noticed much difference in the ways that state government touches your life. ... The roads and schools should still be there in 2011. But Gov. Beverly Perdue just served notice that cuts to state government are about to get worse. The stimulus buffer will soon disappear, and a still-sluggish economy means that a dip in tax collections won’t reverse itself anytime soon. Perdue notified state agency heads recently to prepare for budget cuts as high as $3.3. billion. A memo from her budget director, Charlie Perusse, ordered agency heads, university chancellors and community college officials to begin putting together cuts in the range of 5, 10 and 15 percent. Perdue spokeswoman Chrissy Pearson said state government was preparing for a surgical cut with a very large knife, and that the governor wasn’t looking for indiscriminate, across-the-board reductions. That rhetoric sounds pretty familiar. But in the past, across-the-board cuts, combined with tax hikes, have been the state’s main answer when the economy and tax collections faltered. Contrary to the stereotypes, one of the little secrets of state government is that some bureaucrats will welcome the significance of the level of spending reductions being discussed. Mostly working on the legislature’s permanent staff or in Perusse’s office, they know where waste in state government lurks. They also know that generating the political will to get rid of the pet program of a powerful politician or an entrenched interest requires the kind of cuts now being discussed. But no one should kid themselves. Cutting another 10 percent of state government might eliminate some waste. It will also mean fewer government services. This time around, many more of us will notice the difference.

Letters to the Editor Employer vouches for resume of Lee County commissioner candidate To the Editor: I have received inquiries about the titles and responsibilities of Mr. James K. Womack — a candidate for Lee County Commissioner — related to his employment with the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services and more specifically with the Division of Information Resource Management within the Department. My departmental roles during the period of Mr. Womack’s employment were as the director of the Division of Information Resource Management and chief information officer for DHHS; however neither of these titles existed in the official state personnel job classification system. My official and administrative position was as a systems manager Level 88 (or close facsimile). The working titles of CIO and director were routinely associated with the official position I held. I personally approved hiring Mr. Womack from his position in the state of Washington, where he served in a similar capacity as an information technology manager and staff director. Mr. Womack joined the DHHS team in the summer of 1999, just in time to help our agency complete its Year 2000 preparations and to implement vital coding changes within the many legacy information systems supporting public health. Mr. Womack took on several roles in serving the state DHHS — including, but not limited to advocacy as a client account representative for the Public Health Division; team leader and staff manager for DIRM Team 53 (our newly formed public health application team); and application development manager, responsible for modernizing and maintaining more than a dozen computer systems for the state’s 86 county health departments and districts. Womack wore many hats in directing Team 53 staff and their work activity supporting all of our public health clients. In reviewing Mr. Womack’s resume and bio as published in The Herald and on his website, I find them to be accurate, properly conveying the roles he played during and after his tenure with DHHS. Mr. Womack used his abilities as an information system engineer to conceptualize and diagram an enterprise-class health information system that would serve multiple health agencies well into the 21st century. This was a HIPAA-compliant, statewide systems architecture, unparalleled anywhere in the U.S. Budget constraints and personnel deficiencies prevented us from pursuing the initiative at that time. Four years later and still committed to his vision for an enterprise health system, Mr. Womack responded with the winning proposal to a state request to implement a new health information system. His personal architectural expertise and knowledge of healthcare IT requirements enabled him to conceive a software solution and to forge a multi-vendor team that could meet the state’s needs. That system, valued in excess of $25 million, is now operational across the state. WILLIAM COX Former CIO and DIRM Director North Carolina DHHS

Bob Etheridge has changed his ways To the Editor: I have lived in Harnett County for 35 years. I have known Bob Etheridge for the 35 years I’ve lived here. I have always supported Bob — I supported him when he ran for superintendent of schools, N.C. state representative and U.S. congressman. I even supported him when he lost his bid for county commissioner. But since then, he has changed his ways. He has become so liberal in Washington that I can no longer support him. I have met Renee Ellmers and spoken with her on a couple of occasions. I believe Renee is more like the people of the 2nd District by far, much more so than Etheridge. Bob has really turned to back President Obama and his liberal ways, which are not the beliefs of the people in his district. This was apparent through his vote for health care, which our district did not approve of. Renee Ellmers is an intelligent woman, and I believe she will go far to represent us in Washington.

Garner police began investigating the case last week after a woman reported she was assaulted in Garner EMS’ former town offices. Garner Police Department Lt. Chris Hagwood said he doesn’t expect charges to be pressed this week in the assault case, although he confirmed the top suspect is an EMS worker. Williams said he was notified that Frederick cited a “personal matter� for his leaving, with some Garner EMS heads crediting him for his leadership. No other Garner EMS employees have reportedly been fired or resigned following the investigation. “In the eyes of the

Dogs Continued from Page 1A

About two months ago, Lindauer received a phone call at about 8 p.m. from a man who found Maggie and Mimi wandering along Gulf Road. He wasn’t able to take the dogs home, but he sat with them for two hours trying to track down someone who could take them. “It was just by chance that I was able to go meet him,� Lindauer said. “Animal Control was closed. He literally called everyone he could think of.� Both dogs were emaciated. Maggie was covered in mange, and her teeth had worn down to nothing. She had wounds on her face and appeared to have been in a fight, possibly for food or trying to protect Mimi. Both dogs were also covered with fleas. Though CARA’s dog kennels are often full, that night there happened to be room at the shelter for Maggie and Mimi. Lindauer and the CARA staff bathed the dogs, fed them and vaccinated them. And despite the perception that pit bulls are overly aggressive, Maggie and Mimi were just grateful to have a place to stay. “They were both so

public, they’re putting together the fact that his resignation had something to do with the assault,� Williams said. “But I’ll say ‘innocent until proven guilty.’� Williams said town officials in the future will look to require background checks on nonprofit heads if agencies like Garner EMS accept government funding. Ralph Smith, chairman of the Garner EMS board of directors, could not be reached Thursday to comment on the extent and nature of any possible background checks imposed on Frederick or any other employees of the Wake County nonprofit. The agency has been troubled of late by pressing financial issues that led to Wake County medics taking over the EMS portion of the group’s job, although the Garner

“Sometimes there are dogs that just absolutely touch you and Maggie was one of those for me. Not that I don’t go the length for all of the dogs, but she kind of became my personal cause. Despite all she had been through, she still just wanted human attention and affection and love.� — ABBEY LINDAUER, CARA — sweet,� Angela Conway of CARA said. “They were great with kids. My girls just loved petting them in the recovery room.� Lindauer reported the dogs to Animal Control as found and took them to the vet the next day, and Maggie’s situation was worse than expected. She suffered from a painful condition in which her kneecaps came out of joint. In one of her back knees, the cartilage was completely gone. She needed knee replacements in both of her back knees, surgery that would cost around $5,000. CARA couldn’t afford the surgery, so Lindauer took it upon herself to ensure Maggie had somewhere to go, whether it was another shelter or a hospice-type environment. “Sometimes there are dogs that just absolutely touch you and Maggie was one of those for me,� Lindauer said. “Not that I don’t go the length for all of the dogs, but she kind of became my personal

that this was the right thing for her, it was the absolute hardest thing I have ever done,â&#x20AC;? Lindauer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just adored her. Had I been able to afford her medical care, I would have kept her.â&#x20AC;? But Lindauer found comfort in the people at Pets Alive, who immediately bonded with Maggie and Mimi. The dogs met Rob and Marisol Thomas at a Pets Alive event Sept. 3, and Maggie has since been adopted by a couple from New Jersey. She underwent surgery Tuesday without complications. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It just makes you want to cry with happiness,â&#x20AC;? Conway said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so fulfilling to know that a dog that had nothing is now about to have a family.â&#x20AC;? Mimi is still at Pets Alive waiting to be adopted, but Lindauer said she is confident the organization will take care of her and find her a good home. In only a couple of months, Lindauer said Maggie and Mimi touched her life, and she is thrilled that their story has ended happily. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For this to happen and for it to be a good story is just a reminder that this is why we do it,â&#x20AC;? Lindauer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For all the bad times and all the horrible decisions we have to make, this is something that makes it all worth it.â&#x20AC;?

cause. Despite all she had been through, she still just wanted human attention and affection and love. I wanted her to have that chance to feel safe.â&#x20AC;? Lindauer contacted everyone she knew in animal welfare. Most people gave her the standard, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re sorry, but we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help you.â&#x20AC;? Because of their aggressive reputation, Lindauer said most organizations donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to take pit bulls because they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find homes for them. Finally, Pets Alive, a no-kill shelter in New York, agreed to take both Maggie and Mimi. Pets Alive frequently works with the Sidewalk Angels Foundation, a nonprofit started by Thomas and his wife, Marisol, that provides funds for a wide array of causes, including animal welfare. After sharing Maggieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s story with them, the Thomases agreed to pay for her surgery. Lindauer drove Maggie the 12 hours to New York herself. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As much as I knew

Sanford Police Chief Ronnie Yarborough, who headed the department at the time of Frederickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resignation, declined to comment on the Garner case. Department records show that Frederick worked with Sanford police from June 1980 to July 1996, heading up a city-county drug unit at the time of his departure. Williams said there was never any hint of improprieties from Frederick during his tenure at Garner. The mayor added that he spoke to Frederick on a weekly basis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He came across as a true professional who seemed to provide good leadership,â&#x20AC;? Williams said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It somewhat put me in shock.â&#x20AC;? Frederick could not be reached for comment Thursday.

agency retained its rescue response team. Frederick was chief of that rescue response team until he submitted his resignation Tuesday, several days after the sexual assault investigation started. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I usually donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like surprises unless itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my birthday or Christmas,â&#x20AC;? Williams said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was very surprised in this situation involving Mr. Frederick.â&#x20AC;? According to Williams, Frederick began working for the rescue team two years after his resignation as a captain in the Sanford Police Department. Frederick stepped down in Sanford in summer 1996 following reports of sexual improprieties. He was eventually convicted by state investigators of obstructing justice and was sentenced to probation.

McClamrock and Jenkins were assigned to the 1st Battalion, 27th Infantry Regiment, 2nd Stryker Advise and Assist Brigade, 25th Infantry Division, based in Schofield Bar-

RALEIGH â&#x20AC;&#x201D; North Carolinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most visible swing voters are back on television. Republican Sen. Richard Burr began airing an ad Thursday featuring two memorable men in rocking chairs â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the same two talkers who starred in a nearly identical spot credited for helping Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan to victory in 2008. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Boy, we sure got it wrong last election,â&#x20AC;? one of the white-haired men in plaid shirts says to start the scene. Adds the other: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some hope and change: Bad economy, lost jobs.â&#x20AC;? They complain about government spending and debt while a granddaughter â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a new character introduced for the current version â&#x20AC;&#x201D; worries that sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to get stuck with the bill. A spokeswoman for Burrâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign said one of the men featured in the ad approached Burr earlier this year, saying he wanted to help the campaign. Burrâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign plans

to spend more than $300,000 airing the ad statewide, starting Thursday and going through the next two weeks. A Raleigh-based talent agency that represents the men declined to provide their identities or details on their political views. Two years ago, the men were featured in a television spot complaining about the ineffectiveness of Republican Sen. Elizabeth Dole and her ties to President George W. Bush. It was part of a multimillion dollar ad buy from the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee that was credited with helping turn voters against the incumbent. Hagan, then a littleknown state senator, went on to win the race. Paul Shumaker, Burrâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s political consultant, said thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no doubt the DSCC ad from two years ago was effective. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We think what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing for us will be effective as well,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very reflective of buyerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s remorse.â&#x20AC;?

STATE BRIEFS James Jordan murder case pulled from SBI report

RALEIGH (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Independent reviewers have removed the murder of Michael Jordanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father from a list of cases mishandled by North Carolinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s State Bureau of Investigation. Former FBI assistant director Chris Swecker said Thursday that the case was pulled after a second look at documents. Sweckerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s review had concluded last month that the SBI failed to disclose that it had done four inconclusive tests on blood evidence in the James Jordan case. But Swecker said Thursday that he missed language in which the SBI did report that â&#x20AC;&#x153;further analysisâ&#x20AC;? failed to give conclusive results. Defense attorneys for one man convicted in the case had argued the physical evidence was weak. The convictâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attorney says the SBIâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s handling of the case could still be significant.

Bomb threat call disrupts day at N.C. AGâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office

RALEIGH (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Authorities are investigating the source of a bomb threat that forced the temporary closure of the North Carolina attorney generalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office. North Carolina Department of Crime Control and Public Safety spokeswoman Patty McQuillan said the threat came in around 10 a.m. Thursday, prompting authorities to empty the building in downtown Raleigh and block nearby streets. Authorities searched the building before workers were allowed to return to the building shortly after 1 p.m. Attorney General Roy Cooper is the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top lawyer and oversees the State Bureau of Investigation, which has been going through turmoil after an inquiry found some 200 mishandled cases at the agencyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lab.

Senate candidates have 3 television debates ahead

RALEIGH (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Three television debates between candidates for U.S. Senate in North Carolina have been scheduled. The North Carolina Association of Broadcasters Educational Foundation announced Thursday debates will occur at 7 p.m. on Oct. 11 and Oct. 21 at the University of North Carolina Television studios in Research Triangle Park. The debates will air on other TV stations and on radio. Republican incumbent Richard Burr and Democrat Elaine Marshall have agreed to participate. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t clear if Libertarian candidate Michael Beitler had been invited. A foundation official didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t immediately return a

phone call. The League of Women Voters of North Carolina said Thursday all three candidates have accepted an invitation to a debate at 8 p.m. Oct. 13 at the WNCN-TV studios in Raleigh.

Shaw University introduces first female president RALEIGH (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A historically black college in North Carolinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capital city has named its first female president. The News & Observer of Raleigh reports that Shaw University introduced Irma McClaurin (mih-CLAWâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;-rihn) as its new president to faculty and students Thursday morning. Board of Trustees Chairman Willie Gary announced the selection in a Sept. 6 letter to board members. McClaurin, who replaces interim president Dorothy Yancy, was associate vice president for system academic administration at the University of Minnesota, and executive director of the Urban Research and Outreach/Engagement Center in Minneapolis. Her hiring comes as the school struggles with debt which in the summer of 2009 was reported at $20 million. McClaurin said she would make fundraising one of her first priorities.

Top NC court hears arguments on 3rd party rules RALEIGH (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; North Carolinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highest court has heard arguments on whether laws restricting which political groups can field candidates are so burdensome they violate the rights of voters. The state Supreme Court on Thursday heard attorneys for Libertarians and Greens and for the state on the requirements to become a political party. The justices will rule later. A group must collect tens of thousands of signatures to get on the ballot. The group must start over if neither its candidate for governor nor president receive 2 percent of the vote in an election. The Court of Appeals ruled last year the requirements werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t illegal because the state has an interest to ensure a party has some small level of support. The third parties appealed, saying the thresholds require costly petition drives.

Governor picks new adjutant general RALEIGH (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Gov. Beverly Perdue on Thursday picked an officer who has served twice in Iraq to be the top leader of the North Carolina National Guard. Col. Gregory Lusk, commander of the guardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 30th Heavy Brigade Combat Team, will be appointed adjutant general starting Oct. 1 and be promoted to a generalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rank, officials said. The 31-year Guard veteran will replace Adjutant General William Ingram, who led the 12,000-member air and army guard in the state for nine years.

Lusk served in Iraq for about 18 months ending in April 2005 and 14 months ending this past April. In the latest tour, the 30th worked in part with the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s security forces. Lusk joined the guard in 1979. Outside of the Guard, he works as a financial adviser and owns a hardware store in Raleigh. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s helping respond to hurricanes here in North Carolina or defending our countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s freedoms, the National Guard plays a vital role in our domestic and international security,â&#x20AC;?

Perdue said in a news release. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Col. Lusk is a strong leader and will carry on that proud tradition of being a citizen soldier.â&#x20AC;? Ingram has served in the guard since 1972 and was named adjutant general by then-Gov. Mike Easley two months before the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, after which the guardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s involvement overseas increased dramatically. Ingram, a major general, isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t retiring from the guard, spokesman Maj. Matt Handley said. He couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t comment Thursday on what

Friend of woman left in hearse wants her remains RALEIGH (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A friend of the woman whose decomposing body was left in a hearse for nine days says sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to claim the womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cremated remains and celebrate her life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would like nothing more than to be able to give her a nice service,â&#x20AC;? Teresa Painter of Carrboro told The News & Observer of Raleigh on Wednesday. Painter was speaking about Linda Walton, 37, of Carrboro, whose body was discovered Aug. 20 in a hearse behind the David B. Lawson Mortuary in Graham. Waltonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s body was cremated after it was taken from the hearse, police said. Carrboro police had found her body in her apartment Aug. 11, after she had been dead about a week. An investigation concluded she had a history of health problems and had died of natural causes. Her friends are struggling with feelings of guilt, remorse and helplessness. Painter was a former activity director at an assisted living center in Carrboro and got to know Walton there. She encouraged Walton to stay at the assisted living center because she thought it would be better for Walton, who needed

treatment for kidney disease. But Walton wanted more independence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She was headstrong,â&#x20AC;? Painter said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If she was determined to do something, she did it. She was a survivor, and I think sometimes that survival instinct took place of her better judgment.â&#x20AC;? When Walton left the center, Painter gave her phone number to her friend. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Promise me two things,â&#x20AC;? Painter said she told Walton. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Never go hungry and never go cold.â&#x20AC;? Carrboro police had found a brother in Texas, but he wanted nothing to do with his sister, the newspaper said. Waltonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother died in Whistler, Ala., according to investigators, and no other relatives could be found. Meanwhile, the North Carolina Board of Funeral Service voted Wednesday to hold a hearing to determine if the Lawson mortuary violated the law or the agencyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rules. Board director Paul Harris said the hearing likely will be held in a couple of months. If the board decides to discipline Lawson, punishments range from a warning to the loss of his license.

The Herald-Sun of Durham reported that Lawson told the agency he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have anywhere to store the body while he waited for permission from the Orange County Department of Social Services to cremate it. As part of the boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s investigation, Harris contacted Orange County to try to find out what happened with Lawsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s call. He said he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get the information he requested so the county attorney is now handling the request for information. Nevertheless, the problem was not whether the procedure worked properly but that Lawson stored the body in the hearse for more than a couple of hours, Harris said.

Ingramâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new assignments may include. State law says the adjutant general serves at the pleasure of the governor, who is commander in chief of the state military, and is chosen in consultation with the crime control and public safety secretary. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Throughout his career, Major Gen. Ingram served the country and state with distinction,â&#x20AC;? said Crime Control Secretary Reuben Young. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are honored by his service and wish him the best in his future endeavors.â&#x20AC;?

Symphony names its interim president RALEIGH (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The North Carolina Symphony has named an interim president and chief executive officer who takes over next week. The symphony says Don K. Davis will take over his duties Monday. Davis is a retired member of the symphonyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Board of Trustees, where he served for seven years. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a retired executive vice president with Progress Energy. The Fayetteville native replaces David Chambless Worters, whose last day is Friday. Worters is leaving to be president and CEO of the Van Cliburn Foundation in Fort Worth, Texas.

Minister suspends controversial Quran burning

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The anti-Muslim leader of a tiny Florida church suspended, but didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cancel, his threat to burn the Quran, defusing an international firestorm Thursday after he said he was promised that a planned Islamic center and mosque would be moved away from New Yorkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ground zero. The imam planning the center, however, quickly denied such a deal. The Rev. Terry Jones had been under intense pressure to abandon his plan to

burn the Quran on Saturday, the ninth anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, Jones terrorist attacks. President Barack Obama urged him to listen to â&#x20AC;&#x153;those better angelsâ&#x20AC;? and give up his â&#x20AC;&#x153;stunt,â&#x20AC;? saying it would endanger U.S. troops and give Islamic terrorists a recruiting tool. Defense Secretary Robert Gates

took the extraordinary step of calling Jones personally. Standing outside his 50-member Pentecostal church, the Dover Outreach Center, alongside Imam Muhammad Musri, the president of the Islamic Society of Central Florida, Jones said he relented when Musri assured him that the New York mosque will be moved. Jones had never invoked the mosque controversy as a reason for his planned protest. He cited his belief that the Quran is evil because it espouses some-

thing other than biblical truth and incites radical, violent behavior among Muslims. But he said Thursday that that he prayed about the decision and concluded that if the mosque was moved, it would be a sign from God to call off the Quran burning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are, of course, now against any other group burning Qurans,â&#x20AC;? Jones said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We would right now ask no one to burn Qurans. We are absolutely strong on that. It is not the time to do it.â&#x20AC;?

Imam: No deal to move mosque GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A Florida imam says no deal has been reached to move the site of a mosque near ground zero in exchange for a Florida minister to call off plans to burn Qurans. Imam Muhammad Musri tells The Associated Press that what he offered was a meeting among the Rev. Terry Jones, the New York imam planning the Islamic center and himself to talk

about the mosque location. Musri is president of the Islamic Society of Central Florida. He says he told Jones that he does not believe the mosque should be built near the World Trade Center site and would do everything in his power to make sure it is moved. Jones says he believes a deal was reached to move the mosque and would fly to New York Saturday to discuss it.

Swimmers, motorists missing after floods

Highway deaths fall to lowest rate in years

SAN ANTONIO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The death toll from flooding caused by the remnants of Tropical Storm Hermine could increase after authorities near San Antonio acknowledged Thursday that hopes were dim of finding alive two missing swimmers swept away by floodwaters. Authorities ended foot patrols along the swollen riverbanks and pulled back helicopters making aerial sweeps of the Guadalupe River in New Braunfels, about 30 miles north of San Antonio. The search went from rescue to recovery after the two men didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t turn up early Thursday, when the riverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s slowing current would likely have allowed them to climb the banks to safety, fire marshal Patrick Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connell said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were hoping they wouldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been able to get to a phone by now,â&#x20AC;? Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connell said. The Hermine-fueled flooding caught much of Texas by surprise and forced more than 100 high-water rescues, though not all were successful. Flash flooding has killed at least two motorists and others are still missing. In the San Antonio area, authorities searched Thursday for a man who drove into a flooded road Wednesday. His wife and children were following in a separate car, and the wife called to tell him not to drive into the water, Bexar County spokeswoman Laura Jesse said. Two San Antonio televi-

Authorities also resumed a search in Austin for a woman whose black Lexus sport utility vehicle was swept off the road by swollen Bull Creek. Hermine packed a relatively light punch when it made landfall Monday night, and many Texas residents said they felt unprepared for Wednesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sudden flooding. Near Alvarado, 20 miles south of Arlington, 15 rescuers tried to save a 49-year-old man who apparently drove his pickup truck into a flooded crossing. One rescuer got to within 50 feet of the man but couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t continue because it was too dangerous, Alvarado fire Chief Richard Van Winkle said. The manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s body was found hours later after

the waters receded. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This will weigh on us for a long time,â&#x20AC;? Van Winkle said. Another person died in a vehicle submerged by water from a swollen creek in Killeen, north of Austin, according to the National Weather Service. Texas Gov. Rick Perry toured central parts of the state Thursday and issued a disaster declaration for 40 counties. Perry, pointing out that many of the dead and missing were swept away in their vehicles, urged people not to try to ford swollen creeks or flooded roadways. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care how big your pickup truck is or how good a driver you think you are,â&#x20AC;? Perry said. Some of the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most intense flooding occurred in low-lying pockets of Arlington, a suburb 22 miles west of Dallas. Debris â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including smashed pool tables, pianos and kitchen appliances â&#x20AC;&#x201D; were piled

up in yards and against smashed fences. Some residents piled all of their possessions in the front yard, saying their water-logged homes would have to be gutted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Maybe some bathtubs and commodes can be saved,â&#x20AC;? said Margaret Byrum, 50, who was helping clean out her elderly parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; floodruined home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the worst itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ever been.â&#x20AC;? Perry told reporters that more than 1,200 people in the town of Holland, about 45 miles northeast of Austin, were without water because of storm damage. Authorities were trucking in bottled water, he said. The storm also spawned several tornadoes near Dallas and in southern Oklahoma. A series of tornadoes touched down outside of downtown Dallas, damaging warehouses in an area near Dallas Love Field. One twister slammed a tractor-trailer

rig into a brick paint warehouse, causing the building to topple onto the cab and leaving the driver with minor injuries. Lisa Bahm, a dispatcher with a trucking company, said she and her boyfriend took shelter in the shower of their Seagoville home, near Dallas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And we started praying to Jesus to take care of us,â&#x20AC;? said Bahm, 50. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We heard a screeching noise, the metal peeling off from my metal roof. I was just thinking, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Are we going to live?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Then it was over.â&#x20AC;? There was widespread flooding in eastern Oklahoma, where more than 10 inches of rain in some areas forced the closure of several roads. No injuries were reported, and Hermine was expected to move out of the state by late morning, National Weather Service meteorologist Karen Hatfield said. In northwest Arkansas, the storm dropped 3 to 5 inches of rain before moving east and led LPGA officials to cancel Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scheduled Pro-Am before the P&G Northwest Arkansas Championship at Pinnacle Country Club in Rogers. About a dozen roads were closed in southwest Missouri because of flooding Thursday, though no injuries or damage was reported, officials said. Jason Dunn, a forecaster at the National Weather Service in Fort Worth, Texas, said even when tropical storms lose their power over open water, they can still carry tremendous amounts of rain across land.

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Traffic deaths have plummeted across the United States to levels not seen in more than a half-century, spurred by technology, safety-conscious drivers and tougher enforcement of drunken driving laws. The Transportation Department said Thursday that traffic deaths fell 9.7 percent in 2009 to 33,808, the lowest number since 1950. In 2008, an estimated 37,423 people died on the highways. Government and auto safety experts attributed the improvement to more people buckling up, side air bags and anti-rollover technology in more vehicles and a focus in many states on curbing drinking and driving. Economic conditions were also a factor. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood called the new data â&#x20AC;&#x153;a landmark achievement for public health and safetyâ&#x20AC;? but cautioned that too many people are killed on the road each year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve come a long way,â&#x20AC;? he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;we have a long distance yet to travel.â&#x20AC;? Forty-one states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico saw reductions in highway fatalities, led by Florida with 422 fewer deaths and Texas, down 405. The rate of deaths per 100 million miles traveled also dropped to a record low. It fell to 1.13 deaths per 100 million miles in 2009, compared with 1.26 the year before. Year-to-year declines in highway deaths have occurred in previous economic downturns, when fewer people are out on the road. Traffic deaths decreased in the early 1980s and early 1990s when difficult economic conditions led many drivers to cut back on discretionary travel.

Wildfire sets sights on Boulder as wind picks up

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Neighborhoods once filled with million-dollar homes and scenic mountain cabins have become piles of smoking rubble. On one lot, all that survived was a tennis court. On others, all thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s left are crumbling, ashcovered foundations. They were among the nearly 170 homes destroyed by a Colorado wildfire that showed no signs of relenting Thursday as wind gusts of up to 60 mph threatened to drive the flames from the foothills to the west and into the heart of Boulder. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The wind event tonight, we could be off to the races,â&#x20AC;? said Rob Bozeman, field observer with the Boulder Mountain Fire Protection District. Authorities told residents on the west side of Boulder to be prepared to evacuate if the wildfire moves into town, urging people to remove lawn furniture, brush and propane tanks that could fuel the fire. The city is also mowing grass in open spaces to cut down on potential fuel, and telling residents to do the same. The city encouraged residents to gas up and park their cars pointed

Charred ground and trees surround a home that survived the wildfire that moved through Boulder, Colo., Thursday. Over 150 homes have been destroyed by fires since Monday. toward the road for a speedy getaway, wet down yards and vegetation and pack up important documents, medication and other items in case they have to flee. Boulder is a city of about 100,000 people that is home to the University of Colorado and the National Institute of Standards and Technology, a federal laboratory best known for running the atomic clock thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s used to maintain the official U.S. time. Employees there were allowed to

leave work if they needed to go home to prepare of a possible evacuation, said spokesman James Burrus. Authorities said the biggest fire danger was on the northern portion of Broadway, one of Boulderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main thoroughfares. The federal lab is on Broadway farther south, and the edge of the campus is on the eastern side. Many sorority and fraternity houses are on the western side of the road. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is absolutely a

precaution. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an active fire. High winds are expected,â&#x20AC;? said emergency management team spokesman Dan Rowland. This isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the first time that Boulder has faced a wildfire threat. The city has mountain parks and abundant public open space considered potential trouble spots when fires have started in the mountains. A January 2009 wildfire crept up to Boulderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s northern outer edges, but the city escaped unscathed.

Sprinklers were running in the yards in parts of west Boulder, and people were putting bags in cars Thursday evening. Joe Glynn was hosing down his yard in northwest Boulder and his 9-year-old son, Daniel, sprayed water on city open space next to their lot. His family was packing bags and taking other steps in case they have to flee, but Glynn â&#x20AC;&#x201D; who has witnessed two other wildfires â&#x20AC;&#x201D; said he will stay behind and protect his home of 19 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to stand on the roof with a hose if necessary,â&#x20AC;? he said. The preparations in Boulder reflect the ferocity of the wildfire since it broke out Monday and spread over a 10-squaremile area. It has since become one of the most destructive fires in Colorado, destroying more homes than any other blaze in state history. About 3,500 people have been out of their homes for four days, and some residents have been frustrated with a lack of information about what was happening behind fire lines because they couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do more to help. Some have gotten around roadblocks by hiking and

biking in to check on their homes, and an unknown number of people who got back into homes decided to stay and hunker down. An unknown number of people who were temporarily allowed back to their homes Thursday before winds picked up decided to hunker down and stay. Lee McCormack, referring to the area behind a ridge. Authorities are investigating whether a vehicle crashing into a propane tank started the fire. A recording of a 911 call and other communications released by the sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office chronicles reports of flames after the collision jumping to trees in the fire area. In steep canyons about five miles west of Boulder, firefighters were trying to secure fire lines. But the powerful wind gusts in the forecast could spread the fire beyond the 20-mile-long perimeter. Winslow Robertson, the operations chief for the fire, estimated firefighters have been able to contain 45 percent of the blaze. He said no more structures were lost Thursday.

WASHINGTON, D.C.

Job openings rise in U.S. for first time since April have openings but canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find qualified workers, that will make it even harder to lower the unemployment rate. Some economists argue that the broader problem is that the economy just isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t generating enough jobs. The number of jobs advertised rose by 6.2 percent to 3.04 million in

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Job openings are rising modestly, a sign that employers may step up hiring soon. But rising openings in the past year havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t reduced unemployment, heightening concerns that the unemployed might lack the skills to fill the jobs that are coming available. If companies

But even with the increase, total openings remain far below the 4.4 million that existed in December 2007, when the recession began. Openings have risen

30 percent since July 2009, when they fell to their lowest level on records dating to 2000. Yet the unemployment rate has actually ticked up during that period, from 9.4 percent a year ago to 9.6 percent last month. Private employers added a net total of only 67,000 jobs in August, the government said Friday.

it harder for the unemployed to sell their homes and move to where jobs are available. Narayana Kocherlakota, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, said such mismatches could account for as much as 2.5 percentage points of the unemployment rate.

Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s below the roughly 100,000 jobs a month the economy needs just to keep up with population growth. Some analysts say that means factors other than a lack of hiring are keeping the jobless rate high. Workers may not have the expertise the new jobs require. Or falling home prices may make

Errant drone near D.C. almost met by fighter jet

12 states warned about faulty propane

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The U.S. military almost launched fighter jets and discussed a possible shootdown when an errant Navy drone briefly veered into restricted airspace near the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capital last month, a senior military official said Thursday. The incident underscores safety concerns with unmanned aircraft as defense officials campaign to use them more often during natural disasters and for homeland security. Navy Adm. James Winnefeld Jr., head of Northern Command, said Thursday that the August mishap could hamper the Pentagonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s push to have the Federal Aviation Administration ease procedures for drone use by the military in domestic skies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It certainly doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help our case any time thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) that wanders around a little bit outside of its controlled airspace,â&#x20AC;? said Winnefeld, who also is commander of the U.S. North American Aerospace Defense Command. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We realize the responsibility on our part to include the technical capability and proper procedures. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d just like to be able to get at it quicker.â&#x20AC;? Currently drones are used for patrols and surveillance along the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s southern border, and sometimes at the northern border. But the military wants to use them more during hurricanes and other disasters to evaluate damage or target rescue efforts. The FAA has been working for some time on new regulations governing the use of drones, but has yet to complete them. And the August incident brought one of the FAAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s key concerns to bear â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the prospect that remote operators can lose communications with the aircraft.

Detroit firefighters battle a house fire in Detroit Thursday. Though the number of homes that burned in Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fires was large, on average about 35 homes â&#x20AC;&#x201D; mostly abandoned â&#x20AC;&#x201D; catch on fire daily in Detroit.

Residents asses damage caused by Detroit fires DETROIT (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Toni Booker considered herself fortunate on Thursday as she inspected the damage to her wooden bungalow caused by urban wildfires that swept through Detroit this week, destroying dozens of homes. Despite being in the middle of one of Tuesday nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wind-fed fires, her home escaped the blazes with only a partially charred roof and heat-warped siding. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just put new windows in, and some more work was going to be done,â&#x20AC;? said Booker, a retired auto worker who was renting the home to a woman and her grandson at the time of the fire. No one was injured. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m trying to stick it out in Detroit.â&#x20AC;? At least 85 structures, some of them abandoned, were destroyed or scorched as flames from Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fires jumped from rooftop to rooftop, swelled by winds of up to 50 mph. The fires swept though several neighborhoods, including some that were well-tended and others filled with deteriorating vacant houses

and weed-filled lots. No injuries were reported, but Detroit Fire Commissioner James Mack has said it was the worst spate of fires since the 1980s, when firefighters regularly battled hundreds of arsons on the night before Halloween. Fire officials have said fires in eight parts of the city likely were caused by downed power lines, while two others were believed to be arson. On Thursday, they were trying to determine the extent of the damage. Data from firefighters who battled the fires was being collected. It is unclear how many of the 85 structures were occupied homes, vacant dwellings or garages, community relations Chief Katrina Butler said. Detroit is a city beset with its share of urban troubles. Nearly a third of working age adults are jobless. Foreclosure rates are high and so is crime. The city has wrestled for years with blighted neighborhoods filled with abandoned and ramshackle houses and trash-filled vacant lots overgrown with

weeds as tall as people. Though the number of homes that burned in Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fires was large, on average about 35 homes â&#x20AC;&#x201D; mostly abandoned â&#x20AC;&#x201D; catch on fire daily in Detroit. On Thursday, firefighters battled several blazes throughout the city, though officials said they would not know the exact number for a few days. Even before this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fires, some streets, like the one that Bookerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house is on the east side of the city, had more vacant houses and empty lots than occupied homes. About 33,000 vacant houses are believed to be in the city. Mayor Dave Bing has promised to tear down 3,000 this year and the same number in 2011. Booker hopes the now-burned house just to the east of her house and the half-dozen to the west will be torn down soon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was here when all the houses were lived in. This was the first house I bought,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just want to know, will they leave it like this?â&#x20AC;?

BOSTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; An Illinois-based gas distributor has warned officials in at least 12 states that some propane deliveries may have lacked enough of a chemical that gives a distinctive smell to the normally odorless gas, enabling homeowners to detect possible leaks. Aux Sable Liquid Products said in a letter to public safety officials dated Sept. 8 and obtained by The Associated Press that the odorant is typically added at its Morris, Ill., plant. A company spokesman on Thursday confirmed the contents of the letter. He said the company was alerted to the potential problem by a customer who delivers the gas to smaller distribution centers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were made aware that there were possibly some retail deliveries that were not sufficiently odorized,â&#x20AC;? said Aux Sable spokesman Scott Seibert. He said the company is currently reviewing its propane odorization system. The company said the propane could have been shipped to Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Maryland, Virginia and Vermont.

Defense: Deal discussed in Detroit plane attack DETROIT (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Lawyers for a Nigerian man charged with trying to blow up a plane near Detroit on Christmas said Thursday theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve talked to prosecutors about resolving the case with a deal. The disclosure was made in a court filing that seeks a new deadline to challenge evidence against Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab. The deadline to file motions is Friday. Abdulmutallab is accused of trying to set off a bomb hidden in his underwear aboard a flight from Amsterdam to Detroit last year with nearly 300 people aboard. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s due in federal court Monday for a pretrial hearing. In the court filing, defense lawyers said theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve met with prosecutors on â&#x20AC;&#x153;multiple

occasions, by phone and in person, to explore options for resolution of this case.â&#x20AC;? Abdulmutallabâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lead attorney, Miriam Siefer, declined to comment on the filing. A message seeking comment was left with the U.S. attorneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office. The defense team said prosecutors are opposed to extending Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s motion deadline.

N.Y. to seek info on cleanser contents

NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Consumers will get a newly detailed look at exactly whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in common household cleansers, as regulators plan to start enforcing a nearly 40-year-old state law that would force manufacturers to reveal their productsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; contents. The move comes amid growing scrutiny of the chemicals that make up consumer goods. Possibly the only measures of their kind in the country, the 1971 New York law and related regulations call for manufacturers to provide ingredient lists and research on the productsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; health and environmental effects. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Due to increased public interest in such information, I have decided to begin the process of implementing the departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s authority to requireâ&#x20AC;? the disclosures for all household and commercial cleaning products sold in New York, state Department of Environmental Conservation Commissioner Alexander B. Grannis told the environmental law group Earthjustice in a Sept. 3 letter. The group and other environmental and health advocates unsuccessfully sued several cleanser manufacturers last year to try to get information under the venerable but little-used law. Some companies have voluntarily sent data to the DEC. But the agency historically hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t demanded the information, saying the law just allows â&#x20AC;&#x201D; not requires â&#x20AC;&#x201D; it to be collected and made publicly available. The format, timeframe and other details for the disclosures are yet to be determined. Grannis has asked environmental advocates, cleanser manufacturers and state officials to an Oct. 6 meeting to start discussing the details.

Oprah to begin final season Monday

CHICAGO (AP) — The 25th and final season of “The Oprah Winfrey Show” starts airing Monday and the talk show host says she plans to focus on the people she thinks are responsible for the show’s success: the viewers. “This year you will see lots of surprises for other people, dreams coming true for other people, really honoring the essence of what has made this show work for the past 25 years and that’s the viewer,” Winfrey said in an interview with The Associated Press. “The last season is a celebration of the past 24 years. For me, it is about holding a place of reverence and honor for the people who made this possible for me: that would be the viewers.” Harpo Productions has released a schedule highlighting the first week of new shows, but Monday’s season premiere remains “top secret” with only hints of celebrity guests and a surprise musical performance. During the remainder of that first week, Winfrey will host country music stars The Judds and revisit the city of Williamson, West Virginia, where she filmed a town hall episode about AIDS in 1987. During a live Friday show, she will announce her

Oprah Winfrey will begin the 25th and final season of her show Monday. first book club selection in nearly a year. So what else can fans and longtime watchers expect over this season? A-list celebrities? More makeovers? An outdoor extravaganza similar to Winfrey’s show that shut down Chicago’s Michigan Avenue last season? “I would anticipate that they’re going to pull out all the stops,” said Bill Carroll, an expert on the daytime television market for Katz Television in New York. “If any production team has that ability and certainly the Oprah folks, the folks at Harpo, have proved that over the years.” Winfrey’s departure from a daily talk show on broadcast television is akin to host Johnny Carson’s departure from “The To-

night Show,” Carroll said. “People of a certain era remember Johnny Carson’s last show,” Carroll said. “This generation is going to, in a bittersweet way, say goodbye to this chapter of Oprah’s story.” But this farewell isn’t a final goodbye. Winfrey is set to launch her Oprah Winfrey Network, or OWN, on cable Jan. 1. The end of “The Oprah Winfrey Show” will be featured on that network with “Behind the Scenes: Oprah’s 25th Season,” a one-hour series giving viewers a look at the making of the last season of Winfrey’s talk show. Winfrey describes her show, which is syndicated to 145 countries, as having a cultural impact on her viewers around the world. “I’m learning more

about that and being more accepting of what that has been as I look over these 25 years and prepare to go into the last season — hearing stories about how the show has affected people’s lives over the years,” Winfrey said. Jennifer Todd, 43, says she has watched Winfrey for at least the last 20 years. Todd expects Winfrey’s last season to be huge and filled with charity efforts. On her 19th season premiere in 2004, Winfrey gave a car to the nearly 300 people in her studio audience. It was a $7 million giveaway during which she famously exclaimed, “You get a car! You get a car! You get a car! Everybody gets a car!” “I think she’s going to be full of surprises this year,” Todd said after stopping in Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood to snap photographs of Harpo Studios. “She’s such a giver. I think she’s going to use this as a last chance to give even bigger than before.” Janice Peck, author of “The Age of Oprah: Cultural Icon for the Neoliberal Era,” foresees Winfrey filling the season with giveaways, flashbacks and visits from past guests “who can come in and talk about how they’ve been affected by her.”

Spears denies bodyguard harassment claims LOS ANGELES (AP) — Britney Spears denied a bodyguard’s accusations that she sexually harassed him and abused her children, saying Thursday in a statement on her website that authorities looked into his claims but found no reason to act. The statement said the pop singer and her attorney expect Fernando Flores’ sexual harassment and intentional infliction of emotional distress lawsuit to be dismissed. “This lawsuit is another unfortunate situation where someone is trying to take advantage of the Spears family and make a name for himself,” the statement read. “The Department of Children and Family Services conducted a proper investigation surrounding Mr. Flores’ accusations and have closed the case without further action.” Spears did not say when the investigation was conducted and the department doesn’t release details of its inquiries. Flores claimed in his lawsuit that Spears repeatedly exposed herself to him and made other unwanted sexual advances. He also claimed she used his belt to discipline her young sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James, and acted inappropriately in front of them. The bodyguard’s employment with Spears appeared to be brief — his court filings state he started working for her in February, and by June he was no longer on her security detail. Flores also sued his

Jimmy Johnson becomes a ‘Survivor’ celebrity MIAMI (AP) — Jimmy Johnson has become a “Survivor” celebrity, even though he has yet to appear on the show. Johnson says he knew the CBS reality series was popular, but lately he’s surprised to find himself talking more about his experience on “Survivor: Nicaragua” than about football. “I had a call from my stockbroker today,” Johnson said during a conference call Thursday. “He said, ‘Coach, my wife could care less if you won national championships or Super Bowls — and we live in Dallas. Could you send her an autographed picture? Because she’s a huge “Survivor” fan.’ “That’s the typical response I’m getting.” The premiere airs Wednesday, and the 67-year-old Johnson’s involvement has already received considerable attention since taping concluded this summer. The former coach of the Dallas Cowboys, Miami Dolphins, University of Miami and Oklahoma State spent more than a month as one of 20 castaways. He was part of a team of 10 contestants over the age of 40 competing against a group 30 and under. The famous ex-coach and former psychology major said he got along well with the others. “They’re fans, and they enjoy talking football,” he said. “When things were kind of rough and we were lying on the bamboo at night, they’d say, ‘Jimmy, give us a football story.’ We really had a great relationship.”

Will and Jada’s daughter makes her record debut NEW YORK (AP) — Call her the Fresh Princess. Will and Jada Pinkett Smith’s 9-year-old daughter, Willow Smith, is making her debut as a recording artist. She has signed a deal with Jay-Z’s label, Roc Nation. Her first song was released this week. It’s called “Whip My Hair.” Jay-Z says it’s rare to find an artist with such talent and creativity at Willow’s age. Will Smith first gained fame as a rapper, but unlike her father, Willow is singing on her record. Like her father, she’s a double threat: Willow appeared in the movie “I Am Legend,” with her dad.

Apple CEO Steve Jobs unveils Ping, a social network for music, at a news conference in San Francisco on Sept. 1. Ping, is a potentially useful addition to iTunes, letting you see what songs your friends are buying and where your favorite bands are playing next. mended some artists and people that I might be interested in following, which would then allow me to see what they are buying, recommending and commenting on. I found Pingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s suggestions simplistic at best, however. Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, U2, Taylor Swift and Dave Matthews Band came up, as if Ping merely picked the most popular artists, not ones related to music I liked. How about some obscure artists I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have found on my own? I tried following a few artists that I liked, but not all were on the service yet. It will probably take a while for Ping to get populated with artists to the same degree as sites such as MySpace. Ping got a little more interesting when I looked at the recommendations beyond the artists. Ping

suggested I follow Rick Rubin, the co-president of Columbia Records; Jason Bentley, the music director at one of Los Angelesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; NPR stations, KCRW; and Alexandra Patsavas, a music supervisor who picks songs for TV shows and films. All three people are in the Los Angeles area, and I initially thought they came to me because of the location I specified in my profile. But colleagues in New York and Seattle got the same three recommendations. In any case, they are generally respected pickers of music, and they already had thousands of followers by the time I followed them. Refreshingly, Rubin didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just pick artists signed by Columbia Records, although some of his picks were, including country singer David

Allan Coe. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;Recent Activityâ&#x20AC;? section of Ping shows what people and artists that you follow are buying, liking and commenting on. It looks a lot like Facebook, so it seems familiar and is easy to use. When someone you follow recommends a song, you can listen to a snippet without going to another page, much like Facebookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s iLike application, which is nice. You can also buy the song right there. But the free preview is just a 30-second clip, not the full-length version available on MySpace and sometimes on Facebook, which is not nice â&#x20AC;&#x201D; 30 seconds is too short for me to make a buying decision. I still have to go elsewhere to catch full song streams. When I first checked

TECHNOLOGY

LOS ANGELES â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Apple Inc.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new musicdiscovery feature, Ping, is a potentially useful addition to iTunes. With it, you can see what songs your friends are buying and recommend some of your favorites to them. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great that Apple is finally incorporating elements of Lala.com, which offered similar social-discovery tools until Apple bought the startup in December and shut it down a few months later. And if people use Ping to honestly discuss music, it could be valuable to me as a consumer and help music sales, too. Ping is a good start, but I hold out hope for some improvement. To use Ping, you must install the newly released iTunes 10. It works fine on my Windows XP laptop, but requires Mac users to have at least the Mac OS X 10.5 operating system, or Leopard, which came out in 2007. Upgrading the operating system will cost about $90. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not likely worth the expense just for Ping, which itself is free, as is the iTunes software. Ping starts out by having you fill out a simple registration form. You can have Ping automatically display the music you like based on songs youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve already purchased. Or you can choose what to like and display, which is what I did; I put up such artists as Lily Allen, Owl City, Cowboy Junkies and Jewel. After that, Ping recom-

out Ping, the comments section below the picks was a silly free-for-all. A lot of the comments I read were woefully irrelevant and sometimes offensive. Thankfully, the default setting is to hide all but the most recent comment, and it appears Apple has installed some filters to remove much of the junk as well. You can see upcoming concert listings if you click through to an artistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s profile page, where you can also see who else is following the artist. But the concert listings donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to take into account my location, and clicking to search for tickets takes me to LiveNation.com or Ticketmaster.com. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure this generates more page views and, yes, advertising revenue for Live Nation Entertainment Inc., which now owns both sites. But it would be nice if the entire transaction were handled within iTunes, which already has my credit card stored. The Ping charts, which show top albums and songs bought by people I follow, could prove more relevant if I were to follow more actual friends or industry people I genuinely find interesting. After all, if I follow only well-known, mainstream artists, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m bound to get recommendations for more mainstream music from well-known artists. Overall, Ping is one more tool to help sort through the noise, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a conveniently placed one, at the heart of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest seller of music online.

Iran to free female American for holiday clemency TEHRAN, Iran (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Iran said Thursday it will free Sarah Shourd, one of three Americans jailed for more than 13 months, as an act of clemency to mark the end of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. The imprisonment of the Americans has deepened tensions between the U.S. and Iran, a relationship already strained over Washingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s suspicions that Tehran is trying to manufacture nuclear weapons â&#x20AC;&#x201D; something Iran denies. Bak Sahraei, the second counselor of Iranâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s UN mission sent an e-mail confirming the release of Shourd, following up an earlier text message from the Culture Ministry telling reporters them to come to a Tehran hotel on Saturday morning to witness the release. The site is the same one where the three were allowed the only meeting with their mothers since they were detained in July 2009. Iran claims they illegally crossed the border from Iraqâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s northern Kurdish region and had threatened to put the three on trial for spying. Their families say they were hiking in the largely peaceful region of Iraq and that if they crossed the border, it was accidental.

Suicide car bombing in southern Russia kills 17 people

ROSTOV-ON-DON, Russia (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin blamed extremists â&#x20AC;&#x153;without souls, without heartsâ&#x20AC;? for a suicide car bombing that killed 17 people Thursday in the crowded central market of a city in the North Caucasus. It was the fourth terrorist attack at the market in a decade, and while no one claimed responsibility, the Kremlin has been trying to contain Islamic militancy in the mountainous southern region of Russia. Nearly 140 were wounded in the bombing in Vladikavkaz, the capital of North Ossetia, with about a halfdozen hospitalized in very serious condition. Putin met with Russiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top Muslim cleric after the blast and said Russiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s estimated 20 million Muslims should play a key role in eradicating Islamic extremism in the nation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The crimes like the one that was committed in the North Caucasus today are aimed at sowing enmity between our citizens. We mustnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allow this,â&#x20AC;? Putin said in televised remarks at the meeting.

SANFORD — No rest for the weary. Without even so much as a chance to catch their breath, Southern Lee’s gauntlet of a non-conference slate continues tonight as the Cavaliers host Fayetteville Seventy-First at Cavalier Stadium. Kickoff is slated for 7:30 p.m. The Falcons are Southern’s third-straight 4-A opponent on the year after opening up with a strong 3A team in South Johnston. The schedule has not been kind to the Cavs so far, as opponents have outscored them 152-41.

More inside Herald Hot Seat Herald staffers and a guest expert from the community make their picks on this week’s games

Page 3B And it doesn’t get any easier next week, as the 3-A Cavs go up against a strong 4-A Leesville Road team. Cavs first-year head coach Tom Paris said Thursday after practice he would never have made his first schedule at the school this tough early on had he been able to change it after arriving at the school over the summer.

“If our schedule is not the toughest in the state, then it is one of them,” Paris said. “We’re one or two years away from being able to compete with these teams. We can’t match up with them person-toperson, strength-wise. We have the speed, but we just have to get a lot stronger. “It’s like taking a knife to a gun fight right now,” he added. The Cavs will run up against a strong SeventyFirst team that pummeled Hoke County 44-13 last week. Conversely, Southern’s most stunning loss

SANFORD — The Lee County Yellow Jackets were just 12 points away from making a serious run at winning the Tri-9 Conference last season. Instead, a four point loss to Apex, a four point loss to Holly Springs (106), a three point loss to Middle Creek (38-35) and a one point loss to Athens Drive (26-25) forced the Yellow Jackets to finish the season with a 3-8 overall record and a 2-6 conference mark. Even though the 2009 season is over, the results from last year’s confer-

ence performance still sting the Yellow Jackets today. The Yellow Jackets (2-1) are looking to do something about it as they travel to Apex to battle the Cougars in a rematch of last year’s Tri9 Conference opener at 7:30 p.m. Friday. Last year, the Cougars defeated the Yellow Jackets 17-13, in a game where Lee County shut the Cougars out in the second half. “This was one of those games involved in those 12 points,” said Lee County head coach Burton Cates. “Four points seems like a blowout

compared to our losses to Middle Creek and Athens Drive. We’ve got to be ready because Apex is a tough opponent.” The Cougars (1-2) are coming off a 34-14 loss at Leesville Road last week. The Cougars built a 14-7 lead before allowing the Pride to score 27 unanswered points. Leesville Road got off to a slow start against Apex, but the Pride scored 27 unanswered points to advance to an easy 34-14 win. The Yellow Jackets will have their hands full in trying to contain Apex

BUIES CREEK — Campbell’s football program plays its first home game of the year Saturday against Old Dominion. The game is scheduled for a 1 p.m. kickoff at Barker-Lane Stadium/Ed Gore Field. Campbell (1-0) defeated Virginia Wise in a thriller 20-16 on Saturday in the season opener. The Camels were able to score the game-winning touchdown in the final 10 seconds of regulation on redshirt senior Daniel Polk’s one-yard run. The touchdown run capped off a 13play and 84-yard drive and was Polk’s second touchdown run of the game. Redshirt junior Adam Willets gave the Camels the lead twice earlier in the game with his 21-yard and 47-yard field goals. The 47 yarder was a career-best effort and was his fifth kick of 40 plus yards the last three seasons. Redshirt

Last Weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Records

(Excluding Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s NFL game between Minnesota and New Orleans)

quarterback Adam Nelson and receiver Gavin Locklear. Quincy Morgan has a lot of speed, too, as he returned an 84-yard kickoff for a touchdown last week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t beaten them in 10 years,â&#x20AC;? said Cates. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a lot of speed on their side. They run the football very well and do a lot of things well on defense. They play smart, too. Those guys are very well coached.â&#x20AC;? Coming off last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 48-0 victory over county foe Southern Lee in Brick City Bowl V, the Yellow Jackets are looking to avoid a letdown early on against the Cougars, especially after playing as well as they did in the rivalry game. Last year after cruising to a 55-7 win over Southern Lee in Brick City Bowl IV, the Yellow Jackets came out flat and trailed the 17-0 at one point in the following game against Apex. The Yellow Jackets rallied back with 13 unanswered points,

but it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough as Apex held on for the victory. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We talked a lot about that this week,â&#x20AC;? said Cates. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Usually after beating a rival, an average team will come out and play flat in the first quarter or so of the following game. If we want to prove that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a good team and not an average team, we cannot afford that. We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be flat early on, not in conference.â&#x20AC;? Now that the nonconference part of the schedule is out of the way, the Yellow Jackets are just two wins away from qualifying for the 4-A state playoffs. A win against Apex in the conference opener will help move the Yellow Jackets one step closer to the postseason, which is somewhere they havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been since 2006. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to win four games,â&#x20AC;? said Cates. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all it takes to qualify. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking to get those four wins as early as we can. After that, we want to continue winning so we can get a decent seed. We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it without doing well in the conference.â&#x20AC;?

PITTSBORO â&#x20AC;&#x201D; After falling to Jordan-Matthews last week, Northwood head coach Bill Hall said that the Chargers would bounce back. Nowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s their chance to do it. The young Chargers (1-2), who fell to their Chatham County rival 37-3, have to put that tough loss behind them and start focusing on beating Chapel Hill, a team coming off its first victory over Durham Riverside.

Cavs Continued from Page 1B

of the season came last week in the Brick City Bowl against crosstown rivals Lee County, who cruised to a 48-0 win. Paris said he preaches to his team the importance of starting over each Monday, and doubts if the sting of that loss is still weighing on his guys.

Northwood, who has the majority of its veterans on the defensive side of the ball, must shut down Chapel Hillâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s R.J. Quick and Daniel Watson if the Chargers want to move back to .500 this season. In last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 31-28 overtime win over Riverside, Quick, a wide receiver, had a 21-yard touchdown catch and a 76-yard punt return for a touchdown. Watson, the Tigersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; tailback, ran in two scores to help Chapel Hill build a 28-7 lead. If Northwood wants to get its second victory, they cannot allow the Tigers (1-

2) to have the same performance on the ground that Jordan-Matthews did. The Chargers were limited to just 112 yards of total offense, allowed 245 yards of rushing by the 3-0 Jets in last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loss.

Western Harnett vs. Triton

get any easier as the Eagles (0-3) battle the Triton Hawks (1-2) at 7:30 tonight in Lillington. The Eagles, who have struggled to move the ball on the ground offensively, might have to rely on its defense to help them earn their first win. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have their hands full in stopping Triton, which is led by Derrick Smith at tailback and David Smith at quarterback. The Hawks, who also lost to Harnett Central 51-14 earlier this season, is coming off a 21-7 loss to Clinton.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lee County was just bigger than we are,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are about 1-2 years away from being able to match up with them. They are a great measuring stick for us, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best for us to put that game behind us.â&#x20AC;? The nonconference slate is tough, but he said his team will go into the game tonight looking for their first victory in over two years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get me wrong,

we are looking to win the game,â&#x20AC;? Paris said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But we are also going to celebrate successes where we have them. We want to improve across the board, and we focus on ourselves a lot.â&#x20AC;? And will the tough schedule benefit the Cavs down the road? Well, only time will tell. But Paris is thinks it will. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know that no one has played the schedule we have,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re

going to be better because of that. Everyone likes to create immediate gratification and wants to see wins, but our goal is to get better every week.â&#x20AC;? As for next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s schedule? Well, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t except four 4-A teams in a row anywhere on it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All of our two-year contracts are up this season,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to play some tough teams again next year, but nothing like we got now.â&#x20AC;?

US beats Russia, moves into semis at WBC

BASEBALL

ISTANBUL (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Chauncey Billups made the promise. Kevin Durant made sure it was kept. And by beating Russia on Thursday, the Americans brought a little joy to one of the players who will never forget what happened against the Soviets exactly 38 years earlier. Durant scored 33 points to lead the United States to an 89-79 victory that moved it within two wins of its first world basketball championship since 1994. The victory came on the anniversary of the Soviet Unionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s win over the Americans for the 1972 Olympic gold medal, a game with an ending so controversial the U.S. players refused to accept their silver medals. No player on the young American team is old enough to remember that game â&#x20AC;&#x201D; many are barely old enough to remember the Cold War. But Mike Bantom, the NBAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s senior vice president of player development, played on that U.S. team and is in Turkey with the Americans. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I told him today, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I know nothingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to bring that back, man, but at least weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll try to make you at least smile today,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153; Billups said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And he was like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Yeah, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be nice.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Durant ensured there would be no worries at the finish of this one, shooting 11 of 19 while just missing Carmelo Anthonyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s world championship team record of 35 points, set in 2006.

Brady unhurt in wreck near home BOSTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was in a two-vehicle accident near his home Thursday morning but was unhurt and hours later practiced as usual with his team just days before the season opener. The crash, at an intersection in Bostonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Back Bay area, knocked over a light pole and sent a passenger in the minivan that collided with Bradyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s car to a hospital with injuries that were serious but not considered life-threatening, a police report said. A witness told The Associated Press that the two-time Super Bowl MVP was approaching the intersection on a green light when his black Audi sedan collided with the minivan. The 21-year-old driver of the Mercury Villager minivan, Ludgero Rodrigues, was cited Thursday for failing to stop at a red light, based on witnesses statements, police said. Two other people in the minivan were able to exit and had no visible injuries, they said. The police report, which did not name Brady, said the driver of the Audi had no visible injuries and was evaluated by Emergency Medical Services. It said a 49-year-old passenger had to be freed with the Jaws of Life and was taken to a hospital.

police seeking Mayweather in battery case LAS VEGAS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Police sought boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. for questioning Thursday about a domestic battery report filed by an ex-girlfriend who recanted a similar claim in 2005, police and his lawyer said. No warrant was issued, and no charges were immediately filed. Mayweather, 33, is undefeated as a professional fighter. He goes by the nickname â&#x20AC;&#x153;Moneyâ&#x20AC;? and is considered one of the sportâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top performers. Mayweather has been arrested several times over the years on battery and assault allegations.

ster in a training camp. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard when people are criticizing you to bounce back, especially with a whole year of criticism and a whole offseason of criticism,â&#x20AC;? tight end Zack Pianalto said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To come out there and prove people wrong, we knew he had it in him the whole time.â&#x20AC;? Yates finished with a Bowl Subdivision-best

412 yards to go with three touchdowns against the Tigers. But more importantly, he seemed completely in control in the fourth quarter while leading an offense missing its top two tailbacks and its top receiver due to an ongoing NCAA investigation into the program. He rallied the Tar Heels from a 20-point deficit and drove them all the way to the 6-yard line in the final seconds before falling short on two passes to Pianalto in the end zone that could

coach Butch Davis said Yates would have to hold off Renner for the starting job through training camp. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unclear whether Yates was in real danger of losing the job or if Davis was trying to motivate him, but Yates has responded and seemed far more at ease this week than he did leading up to the LSU game. While he said this week he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pay much attention to the criticism, he also said minutes later that it was â&#x20AC;&#x153;a good feeling

knowing a lot of fans are behind me now.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;He kept his head up and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let things get to him,â&#x20AC;? receiver Jheranie Boyd said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of people were talking about Bryn Renner â&#x20AC;&#x201D; â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Whenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bryn getting in?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and Brynâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great quarterback as well. But I feel like T.J. just took that as motivation, came in that game and just took over and became the leader that he was.â&#x20AC;?

Features Dear Abby

BRIDGE HAND

Sudden end to long friendship becomes neighborhood gossip

HOROSCOPES Universal Press Syndicate

Happy Birthday: Be ready to make whatever move is required to hold on to what you have and make the gains that will set you apart. End any questionable partnerships. Let the hard times and past experiences help you achieve now. Incorporate passion into everything you do personally and professionally and you will succeed. Your numbers are 3, 14, 17, 21, 27, 37, 44 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Stay calm and let things unfold naturally. Making a fuss will only set your plans back further. Relationship problems and emotional concerns will bring added responsibilities. Set boundaries. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Business connections can be made. Your ability to pick up information quickly and apply it to what’s expected of you will keep you in the running for an interesting position with plenty of opportunity. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Show a little emotion and you will capture attention, compassion and the help you require to get things done. Your serious attitude and request for assistance will pay off financially and professionally. Charm and intelligent banter will help you win favors. CANCER (June 21-July 22): You’ll take three steps forward and two steps back. Don’t let the lack of progress depress you. Sometimes having to wait or showing patience is a saving grace. Romance is in the stars; plan a special evening. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Friends, family and neighbors can help you with the changes you want to make to your home or property. Don’t let love get you down. Your positive response will impress anyone watching how you handle emotional situations. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Dedication, hard work and using your knowledge

will work to your advantage. Plan to take time off to enjoy the company of someone you care for or learn a skill that will help you get ahead or achieve a lifelong goal. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Offer your services to the right people or organizations. Once you show people what you are capable of doing, the rest will be easy. Don’t let problems at home or with someone’s jealousy cause you to miss a life-altering opportunity. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Put your differences aside and spend time with the people who have the most to offer you personally. There will be interest in your qualifications when you apply for a job. Be willing to be flexible about the hours. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): You may question the changes going on in your personal and home life, but you must get things under control instead of putting blame elsewhere. Put inevitable changes behind you so you can get back to working and making money. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): You have to stand your ground and offer what you can, not what someone else expects. You deserve better and more for what you have done in the past. A deal that you couldn’t complete in the past can be revitalized and can turn out to be your ticket to success. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Getting involved in a moneymaking venture or in turning a profit by selling something you possess will buy you the freedom you need to make lifealtering changes. Don’t let someone who wants to take advantage of you stand between you and your dreams. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t sell yourself short. A deal may look good but, once you realize how much you have to offer, you may want to reconsider or go it alone. Figure out what you need to run the show before you give a firm answer.

DEAR ABBY: “Pam” and I have been friends since childhood, when we attended preschool together. Our backgrounds are similar and we share the same religious views. About two months ago, Pam suddenly stopped speaking to me. I have wracked my brain and honestly have no idea why. I have called, e-mailed and sent her letters to which she tersely replied, “Leave me alone.” I’m sick over it and don’t know what to do. My kids love Pam and I adore her children and family. I cannot for the life of me imagine what would cause her to discard our friendship with no explanation. I heard through the neighborhood grapevine that people suspect there must have been some kind of infidelity involved — such as Pam’s husband hitting on me or mine on her. According to one neighbor, “It’s the only plausible reason” a friendship like ours would end so abruptly. I am beside myself. What should I do? — HAVEN’T A CLUE IN NEW YORK DEAR HAVEN’T A CLUE: I wish you had written me before soliciting advice from your neighbors because now you’ve got them talking. There may be something going on in your friend’s life having nothing to do with you that she’s not comfortable talking about right now — which could also account for her silence. Try not to internalize what has happened and allow her the space she’s asking for. The truth will come out eventually. It

always does ... o DEAR ABBY: I am a disabled man and I live with my 75-year-old mother. Most of the time we get along OK, but Mom is a “clutter bug.” I have never known her to throw anything away. There are newspapers and magazines stacked everywhere in our home dating back at least 10 years. Mom doesn’t want to invite anyone into the house. She says it’s “a mess,” but she won’t take advantage of any professional cleaning or organizing services. We haven’t entertained in 30 years! Could this be a sign of Alzheimer’s? What can I do about her? Please help. — BURIED ALIVE IN AKRON DEAR BURIED ALIVE: If your mother has been this way for 30 years, it’s not Alzheimer’s — she’s a compulsive hoarder. She may need psychological help and/or medication to overcome her anxiety about

letting anything go. If you have a social worker who helps with your disability, talk to that person about finding help for your mother. If you don’t, talk to her physician. The situation as you describe it indicates the house could be a safety hazard — possibly a fire trap. Please do not procrastinate any longer because your lives could depend upon it. o DEAR ABBY: Is it odd to eat with one hand in one’s lap? I didn’t realize that I did it until my fiance’s parents mentioned it to me at a dinner. When we subsequently ate with my family, I realized that every person in my family eats the same way. My future in-laws say they have never heard of such a thing. My grandmother says it is good table manners, and I have no intention of changing. (My fiance and I are both third-generation Americans.) What do we teach our (future) kids? — PROPERLY TAUGHT IN ARIZONA DEAR PROPERLY TAUGHT: Teach them the proper table manners that you were taught as a child. According to Emily Post, by the time a child is 12, he or she should have learned to “sit with good posture and feet firmly on the floor throughout the meal. (And) KEEP FREE HAND IN LAP WHEN NOT CUTTING FOOD OR PASSING ITEMS.” (The italics are mine.)

Odds and Ends Dogs cast DC mayoral vote by munching on treats WASHINGTON (AP) — The Washington Humane Society is conducting a “paw poll” to let dogs cast their votes for D.C. mayor. The poll was conducted Thursday morning at a dog park in northwest Washington. Bone-shaped biscuits marked with each of the two leading Democrats’ names were placed in front of the dogs, and they cast their vote by choosing which one to eat. Bones that represent Mayor Adrian Fenty were green with white polka dots while bones for his main challenger, Vincent Gray, were white with green polka dots. Spokeswoman Sabrina Fang says some owners didn’t agree with their dogs’ choice, and some dogs voted more than once because they were hungry. The winner will be revealed Friday on the 5th annual Walk for Animals website.

Study: Flamboyant male dancing attracts women best LONDON (AP) — John Travolta was onto something. Women are most attracted to male dancers who have big, flamboyant moves similar to the actor’s trademark style, British scientists say in a new study. Kris McCarty and colleagues at Northumbria University and the University of Gottingen in Germany asked 19 men aged 18 to 35 who were not professional dancers to dance in a laboratory for one minute to a basic drum rhythm. They filmed the men’s movements with a dozen cameras, and then turned those movements into computer-generated avatars so the study could focus on moves, not appearances.

SUDOKU

My Answer Scientists then showed the dancing avatars to 37 women, who rated their skills on a scale of 1 to 7. According to the women, the best dancers were those who had a wide range of dance moves and focused on the head, neck and torso. The research was published this week in the journal, Biology Letters, a publication of Britain’s Royal Society. It was paid for by Northumbria University.

Abracadabra! Romania witches win tax fight for now BUCHAREST, Romania (AP) — Abracadabra, we’ll turn all of you into toads! That’s what Romanian senators may have been fearing when they rejected a proposal to tax witches and fortune tellers. Lawmakers Alin Popoviciu and Cristi Dugulescu of the ruling Democratic Liberal Party drafted a law where witches and fortune tellers would have to produce receipts, and would also be held liable for wrong predictions, a measure which was part of the government’s drive to increase revenue. Romania’s Senate voted down the proposal Tuesday. Popoviciu claimed lawmakers were frightened of being cursed. It’s unclear if Popoviciu and Dugulescu will try to redraft the law. Maria Campina, a well-known Romanian witch, told Realitatea TV Thursday it is difficult to tax thousands of fortune tellers and witches partly because of the erratic sums of money they receive. Romania is in a severe economic downturn and is trying to raise revenue from taxes. The government hiked sales tax from 19 to 24 percent, and slashed public sector wages by one-fourth.

Jesus lives in our hearts and heaven Q: If Jesus rose from the dead (which I gather Christians believe happened), then where is He now? Could He be living in some far corner of the world, and some day He’ll reveal Himself again? I don’t have a church background but I’ve always been curious about this. -- Mrs. D.N. A: No event in human history was as important as what took place during the final days of Jesus’ public ministry: His death on the cross and His resurrection from the dead. Why is this? The reason is because these two events -Jesus’ death and resurrection -- were God’s way of bringing salvation to the human race. By nature we are lost and separated from God because of our sin -- and no matter how hard we try, we can’t cleanse ourselves of our sins or make ourselves pure in God’s sight. But God loves us in spite of our sin, and on the cross all our sins were placed on Jesus -- the sinless Son of God -- and He took upon Himself the judgment we deserve. And by His resurrection He conquered sin and death and hell, and opened heaven’s doors for us. His disciples could say with boldness that “God has raised this Jesus to life, and we are all witnesses of the fact” (Acts 2:32). Where is Jesus now? Forty days after His resurrection, Jesus was taken up into heaven -- and now He sits at the right hand of God (i.e., in the place of authority and favor). And some day He will return to destroy all evil and establish His Kingdom. But Jesus also resides in the heart of every believer, by His Spirit.
