To save money, filers may dodge using paid tax preparers BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER GOING ROGUE HIGH POINT � In a time when consumers are cutting back on the amount of goods and services that they pay for, even paid tax preparers may be taking a hit this year. H&R Block reported that the number of returns prepared in retail operations fell 5.6 percent nationally, while the number of total tax returns prepared through Feb. 15 fell 6.3 percent. Some local tax preparers say they've seen a similar trend as consumers use other means, such as electronic filing or the Internal Revenue Service's Free File option, while other paid preparers are waiting for another rush toward the end of the season. Patrick Laughrey, area Jackson Hewitt manager, said Triad offices have seen fewer customers walk through the doors this year. SONNY HEDGECOCK | HPE Mahlon Pendry, a retired IRS agent, works on his client's tax return out of his home office. "There haven't been as many (customers) as last year," Laughrey said. "There could be a variety of reasons for that. There are some people trying to save money by doing their taxes online. A lot of people probably won't be filing this year due to economic hardships and unemployment because they didn't earn enough, so we just might not have as many refunds to issue this year." According to the IRS, most people who earn unemployment compensation would probably have to file. The first $2,400 in unemployment compensation is non-taxable. "Unemployment may affect some people this year," said Mark Hanson, spokesman with the IRS, "But if they've earned more than that $2,400, they will probably have to file." Another theory is that those who are trying to save money may be waiting until the last minute to file and pay those taxes, said Mahlon Pendry, who operates Pendry's Accounting Service. Pendry has gained three new customers this year in addition to his regular clientele and expects to see more before the season ends, he said. "My customers are coming in pretty regularly," said Pendry, a retired IRS agent. "Most people are going to owe taxes this year since the withholding rate on their W2 forms went down but tax rates didn't. It may be that later, when people are ready to pay those funds, that we'll see more coming in." Hanson said it was too early in the 2009 tax season to tell if there had been a change in the number of people who use paid tax preparers. firstname.lastname@example.org | 888-3617 TRINITY � Trinity officials discussed the fate of mobile home parks during its preagenda meeting Tuesday evening. With a public hearing scheduled on proposed text amendments to the city's mobile parks ordinance for next Tuesday night, City Manager Ann Bailie asked the City Council for direction on what the governing body would like to do with mobile home parks. Councilwoman Karen Bridges said she wanted to have all mobile home parks eventually phased out as they "fall apart," but noted she didn't think that option was possible. Bob Wilhoit, the city's attorney, told the City Council that it could not outlaw mobile parks in the city limits. Trinity officials, however, could designate a place in the city for mobile homes, he said. Councilman Kelly Grooms suggested the city would be taking income from mobile home park owners if it begins to phase out some in the city. He also said the residents in the mobile home parks need a place to live. "Don't cut these people out," Grooms said. Currently, the city has interest from residents who want to build a mobile home park and another person who wants to replace a mobile home, Bailie said. The City Council took no action Tuesday evening because the public hearing had already been set. Last month, Adam Stumb, the city's planning and zoning administrator, said Trinity officials are discussing changes to the ordinance because they "want to improve the image and safety for all existing parks" in the city. Currently, Trinity has Judge Glenda Hatchett will serve as keynote speaker during the Second Annual Urban Education Institute at North Carolina A&T State University. The event will be March 19-20. Hatchett is known in the legal community for her courtroom style as seen on "The Judge Hatchett Show." ---- INSIDE NEEDS IMPROVEMENT: Oak Hill teachers want more time. 1B ---- B.

The Davidson County Board of Commissioners on Tuesday night agreed to take ownership of the Wil-Cox Bridge. Commissioners Larry Potts and Don Truell voted against the request by the N.C. Department of Transportation that Davidson County become the new owner of the bridge. Chairman Max Walser said the offer by the DOT was "simply too much to pass up" before the board voted to take ownership of the bridge. DOT officials will give Davidson County $2.5 million for preservation of the bridge once the state stops allowing vehicular traffic on the bridge. The Wil-Cox Bridge is adjacent to the I-85 bridge over the Yadkin River and serves as a thoroughfare to the town of Spencer. If commissioners rejected the DOT's offer to take ownership of the bridge, the structure would have been demolished as part of the I-85 bridge over the Yadkin River project, said Pat Ivey, a DOT division engineer out of Winston-Salem. Looking to make the Wil- Cox Bridge a pedestrian bridge, Davidson County commissioners agreed to take ownership of the bridge because of its historic nature. The Wil-Cox Bridge, which was built in 1922, is eligible to be placed on the National Register of Historic Places. The seven-span concrete arch connects Davidson and Rowan counties across the Yadkin River in an important area known as the Trading Ford, according to a report by David Fischetti. Fischetti, president of DCF Engineering, gave a presentation last week to commissioners after being hired to examine the structure of the Wil-Cox Bridge. Fischetti told commission- SONNY HEDGECOCK | HPE The Wil-Cox Bridge as seen from the boat launch area of York Hill access. ers the bridge's condition is poor and repairs need to be made, but noted the structure is "very difficult to duplicate today" and could be used as a pedestrian walkway for many years to come. Fischetti also cautioned commissioners last week not to take ownership of the bridge until the DOT stops vehicular traffic on the bridge. Ivey, who attended the Tuesday night meeting, told commissioners that the county would not be responsible for upkeep of the bridge until traffic is stopped on the structure or unless it wanted to take part of the $2.5 million to improve the structure. email@example.com | 888-3657 INFO Circulation Classified Newsroom Newsroom fax 888-3511 888-3555 888-3527 888-3644 YOUR COMMUNITY.

DAVIDSON COUNTY � An overturned tanker truck that spilled several chemicals blocked N.C. 150 in Lexington Tuesday morning. The crash happened just before 8 a.m., near the Captain Steven's Seafood Restaurant, WXII-12 TV reported. Authorities said a hazardous material team from Greensboro arrived at about 10 a.m. to assist in cleaning up the chemicals that leaked from the truck into a waterway that spills into Reedy Creek. Authorities said one of the chemicals, toluene, was highly flammable. Troopers said the in- cident happened when the driver of the truck missed his turn on Highway 150 and pulled into a parking lot to turn around. As he made his turn, the back axles of the truck slid into a ditch, causing the trailer to topple over.

The quake near the village of Basyurt in Elazig province hit before dawn Monday, sparing some and crushing others in rubble.

Israel's Interior Ministry said late Tuesday that it had approved construction of 1,600 new apartments, an embarrassing setback for Biden after a day of warm meetings with top Israeli officials. Although ministry officials said the announcement was procedural and unconnected to the visit, a top aide to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he was blindsided and tried to contain the damage at a late-night dinner with Biden. Nonetheless, Biden issued a harshly worded statement after the dinner, saying its timing was especially troubling by coming on the eve of a new round of U.S.-mediated peace talks. "The substance and timing of the announcement, particularly with the launching of proximity talks, is precisely the kind of step that undermines the trust we need right now," Biden said.

Commission: Iraq ballots still being collected BAGHDAD (AP) � Iraq's election commission says ballots are still being counted in the historic parliamentary elections and backed off from an expected announcement of partial results.

Election officials earlier said initial results were to be released by Tuesday evening, after about 30 percent of the ballots had been tallied.

No students were hurt. Nathaniel Brown, 51, arrived for work at the nation's largest university dressed in dark clothing, a hooded sweat shirt and a backpack. He then opened fire in an office suite using two handguns, campus Police Chief Paul Denton said. Brown spent five years in prison in the 1970s and '80s for receiving stolen property but lied about it on his job application, records show. It wasn't immediately clear whether Ohio State had done the required background check on him. Ohio State released documents from Brown's personnel file showing that supervisors complained he was tardy, slept on the job and had problems following instructions. The university sent him a letter March 2 informing him that his employment was to end Saturday. AP A California Highway Patrol officer helped slow this runaway Toyota Prius from 94 mph to a safe stop on Monday after the car's accelerator became stuck on a San Diego County freeway, the CHP said. Feds to probe cause of runaway Prius EL CAJON, Calif. (AP) � The government sent investigators Tuesday to examine a Prius that sped out of control on a California freeway, and Toyota said it wanted to interview the driver as the besieged automaker dealt with a high-profile new headache that raised questions about the safety of its beloved hybrid. A day after state troopers helped the car slow to a stop and its driver to emerge unharmed, Toyota could shed no new light on what might have gone wrong. The Prius is not part of Toyota's vast to hear experts insist that electronic flaws could not cause cars to speed out of control under real driving conditions.

Another Toyota spokesman, John Hanson, said the company wanted to talk to the driver, James Sikes. Massa denies he sexually groped male staffer WASHINGTON (AP) � Former Rep. Eric Massa, who resigned from Congress amid sexual harassment allegations, acknowledged Tuesday groping a staffer but denied it was sexual.

"Instead of a shining American symbol of resilience and strength, we have a hole in the ground," U.S. Rep. Carolyn Maloney told the crowd. "Rebuilding the towers and ground zero is a moral imperative. Putting 10,000 people to work in the middle of a severe recession is an economic imperative." The protest comes days before a Friday deadline for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and developer Larry Silverstein to work out a new schedule for rebuilding parts of the site. Construction is under way on 1 World Trade Center. Jury recommends death for serial killer SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) � A California jury on Tuesday recommended a death sentence for convicted serial killer Rodney Alcala, only hours after the 66-year-old pleaded for his life to be spared. Alcala was convicted last month of murdering 12-year-old Robin Samsoe and four Los Angeles County women in the late 1970s. It was the third time he was sentenced to death in the Samsoe case. The previous sentences were overturned. Relatives broke out in applause in the courtroom and Samsoe's brother shouted out, "Yes!" when the jury's recommendation was read. Alcala gave his own closing arguments earlier Tuesday afternoon, telling jurors that if they recommend death instead of life in prison without parole, his case would be on appeal for another 15 to 20 years. "But if you choose life in prison you will end the matter now," he told the Orange County jury. KING'S B THE INA LARGEST UFFE CHINESE CH BUFFET IN TOWN!

TOMORROW 6A Opinion Page Editor: Vince Wheeler email@example.com (336) 888-3517 Vehicles with inspection woes might get wavier My daughter's check engine light came on in December and her car registration (and inspection) was due in January. I had always been told that a car could not get inspected if the check engine light was on, so I took her 2000 Explorer to my trustworthy mechanic. My mechanic doesn't do inspections but has the equipment to "read" the car's computer and determine what needs to be fixed. He replaced the least expensive part listed as possible failures. Unfortunately, the light came back on before we could get it inspected, so I told the guys at another place to just fix it and inspect it. The repairs cost nearly $1,000 and we had to drive it 50 miles to clear the computer then bring it back for inspection. Less than 20 miles later, the check engine light came back on, this time a completely different code. Totally frustrated, I asked my mechanic what he would do, and he mentioned a waiver. I had never heard of a waiver, so I went to the Web site for N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles and learned that if you spend at least $200 trying to repair your vehicle to pass inspection and it still won't pass, you may qualify for a waiver so that you can get your registration renewed. Here's what you have to do: (1) Have the car inspected and fail; (2) spend at least $200 to repair; (3) have it reinspected and fail; (4) take both inspections and receipts to the License and Theft Bureau; (5) if you get your waiver, take it to get inspected again and they have a waiver code to input that is sent to DMV; (6) get your registration! I learned a lot from all of this and wanted to pass the informa- YOUR VIEW --- tion along to others that may be in the same boat.

Mindless Congress will probably follow orders like lemmings to the sea. OUR VIEW --- Focus turns to home furnishings W his winter's colder than normal temperatures appear to be letting up as March rolls in, so now attention begins turning to High Point's spring home furnishings events. And there has been good news on that front during the last few days. The High Point Market Authority announced late last week that pre-registration is up for next week's Premarket event. Authority officials said pre-registrations for Premarket include 161 buyers representing 70 home furnishings companies. Then this week, we learn that 42 showrooms already have announced that they will be open for business during next week's event. Slowly but surely, the Authority is rebuilding Premarket and its importance to the industry toward the level of involvement it commanded a decade or two ago. We doubt we'll see Premarket numbers of 5,000 or more as back then, but an attendance of several hundred and growing is much preferable to stopping Premarket events, as was considered just a few years ago. And certainly, it was great news from the Authority that for this spring's market (April 17-22), attendees will pay hotel rates averaging just $134 a night compared to $175 last year. That is an indication to us that hotel operators around the city finally are realizing the long-term value of reasonable market rates and the long-term harm of unreasonably inflated market rates. And it's a realization vitally important to the High Point Market's future. Mandated benefits drive up cost of health insurance care system say that it will "keep insurance companies honest." The very idea of politicians keeping other people honest ought to tell us what a farce this is. But if we keep buying it, they will keep selling it. One of the ways of reducing the OPINION costs of medical insurance would be to pass federal legislation putThomas ting an end to state regulation of Sowell insurance companies. That would instantly eliminate thousands of state mandates, which force insurance to cover everything from wigs to marriage counseling, depending on which special interests are influential in which states. It would also promote nationwide competition among insurance companies � and competition keeps prices down better than politicians will. Moreover, competition can bring down the costs behind the prices, in part by forcing less efficient insurance companies out of business. Another very real and very big cost behind the high prices for medical treatment are the many forms of expensive "defensive medicine" that doctors and hospitals have to practice, in order to avoid being sued by unscrupulous lawyers. Expensive and unnecessary tests and treatments cost even more than the multimillion dollar awards that clever lawyers can get from gullible juries. Tightening up the laws, so that junk science does not prevail in courts, would create some real savings in medical costs. But, since plaintiff's lawyers are big financial contributors to the Democratic Party, that is unlikely to happen during this administration. Finally, there are costs that are high because people want medical care in more comfortable surroundings � a private room rather than a bed in a ward, for example � and are willing to pay for it. This is more common among Americans. There is no reason for others to interfere with that, just because of a mindless mantra of "bringing down the cost of medical care" or class warfare rhetoric about "Cadillac health plans." THOMAS SOWELL, a native of North Carolina, is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305. His Web site is www.tsowell.com. T OUR MISSION --- The High Point Enterprise is committed to this community ... and always will serve it by being an intensely local newspaper of excellent quality every day. ith all the controversies, charges, counter-charges and buzzwords swirling around the issue of medical care in the United States, there is a lot to be said for going back to square one and asking just what is the fundamental problem. The quality of the medical care itself is not the problem. Few � if any � countries can match American medical training, medical technology or the development of life-saving pharmaceutical drugs in the United States. Most countries with government-controlled medical care cannot come close to matching how fast an American can get medical treatment, particularly from specialists. Political hype is no reason to throw all that away. In fact, policies based on political hype over the years are what have gotten us into what is most wrong with medical care today � namely, the way it is paid for. Insurance companies or the government pay directly for most of the costs of most medical treatment in the United States. That is virtually a guarantee that more people will demand more medical treatment than they would if they were paying directly out of their own pockets, instead of paying indirectly in premiums and taxes. Since people who staff either insurance company bureaucracies or government bureaucracies have to be paid, this is not bringing down the cost of medical care, but adding to it. What also adds to the costs are politicians at both state and federal levels who mandate additional benefits to be paid for by insurance companies, thereby driving up the cost of insurance. If medical insurance simply covered risks � which is what insurance is all about � that would be far less expensive than covering completely predictable things like annual checkups. Far more people could afford medical insurance, thereby reducing the ranks of the uninsured. But all the political incentives are for politicians to create mandates forcing insurance companies to cover an ever increasing range of treatments, and thereby forcing those who buy insurance to pay ever higher premiums to cover the costs of these mandates. That way, politicians can play Santa Claus and make insurance companies play Scrooge. It is great political theater.

It's a problem. A society comprised mostly of people too lazy to take care of themselves just a few minutes a day with good exercise and healthy eating habits have more problems than might meet the eye. Physical and mental health � and by the latter I mean not simply being free of mental disease or neuroses, but the peace of mind, spiritual strength and clarity of focus that result from physical well-being � cannot be overlooked as key virtues. If only as a practical matter of cost and efficiency, physical and mental health of individuals deserve our utmost focus, because how much OPINION less would health care cost individuArmstrong als, and therefore Williams society, if most of us were committed to our own physical health? And how much more disciplined, mentally clear, and happy would we be if we weren't � let me put this bluntly � fat and out of shape, and getting worse every generation? Obviously, happiness and mental acuity aren't purely functions of one's waist size and mile-run time. But can anyone credibly argue that a man who is already ---- generally happy and successful wouldn't be much happier and perhaps a bit more successful as a result, if his senses were clear, his arteries flowing optimally with nutrient-rich blood � and his waistline rivaling that of his own high school days? Studies have confirmed common sense in this regard time and time again: the obese suffer from a general malaise, a lack of selfesteem, and even depression at far greater rates and to much more extreme depths (all else being equal) than do those who are trimmer and spend more time on their own physical well-being.

Yazeed Essa, 41, won't be eligible for parole for at least 20 years. After slow start, tornado season under way OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) � Forecasters say a wetterthan-usual winter and a jet stream ripping over the part of the country known as "Tornado Alley" could lead to an active spring � perhaps starting with the strong twister that nicked a small western Oklahoma town Monday night. "It's time to get ready," Michelann Ooten of the Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management said Tuesday as she surveyed damage from a storm that destroyed five homes and tore the roofs off several others in Hammon. The nation typically will see 70-100 tornadoes by early March, but only 42 had been reported until Monday night's Oklahoma tornado. There was only one tornado nationwide during February. "No one would argue that we're going to see a pretty good increase in the number of severe storms," said Greg Carbin, the warning coordination meteorologist with the national Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Okla. "But each year's a little different. The number, magnitude, number of days are all very tentative at this point." In the short term, storms will be generated and fueled by the usual tornado trigger � Gulf moisture colliding with storm systems driven by the jet stream. Woman who recruited jihadists online charged PHILADELPHIA � A suburban Philadelphia woman "desperate to do something" to help suffering Muslims has been charged with using the Internet to recruit jihadist fighters and help terrorists overseas, even agreeing to move to Europe to try to kill someone, prosecutors said Tuesday.

While Principal Sara Roberts and Regional Superintendent Angelo Kidd met with parents at the High Point school, the teachers called on the Board of Education to let their programs work. Located in a decaying factory district, Oak Hill has challenges. Sixty percent of K-2 students speak English as a second language and 99 percent of students receive free meals. "We do serve the homeless and the poor," said teacher Monica Smith. "We have taught students to read. If that is not growth, I do not know what is. Don't give up on us. We have not given up on them." Only about 24 percent of students scored proficient in reading on state exams last year, and 39 percent were proficient in math. Several teachers said it could take several more years before students show improvement in all grades. "The performance of our third-graders has improved," said first-grade teacher Jennifer McClinton. "In two years, all students would have the same preparation. We need time." School district leaders have not decided if they will change the school reform plan that includes tutoring and mentoring by high school students and individual student performance plans. "Each student is part of the family," said Angela Jackson. "We help parents find jobs and the students get clothes. We look at the whole child at Oak Hill." If they want to use a federal grant from the No Child Left Behind program or others to reform the school, district officials may have to replace the principal and half of the teachers. "Teachers are involved there and making progress," said Tijuana Hayes, president of the Guilford County Association of Educators. "Students are more than a test score." To receive the federal grant, school districts must agree to either closing the school, turning the school over to a charter school organization or reforming the school by replacing the principal and half the teachers. School board member Garth Hebert of High Point, who supports strict reforms, said harsh reform measures may not work at Oak Hill. "We have seen the best of humanity at that school helping these children," Hebert said. "You have to stand up for what is right. This school does not fit the round hole. I thank these teachers for feeding the poor and helping the fatherless." email@example.com | 888-3626 HIGH POINT � With consumer complaints about scams and fraud on the rise, one government enterprise is spearheading an education campaign aimed at helping people protect themselves. National Consumer Protection Week, which runs through Saturday, will include an information session by the U.S. Postal Service at the main High Point post office on Thursday. Postal service officials will join with consumer protection organizations at the post office to offer information on how people can protect their privacy and avoid identity theft and scams. "Most of the stuff that we will have information on are things that are related to the mail service and how people use it to commit fraud and that type of thing," said Carl Walton, USPS spokesperson for the Greensboro district. The investigative arm of the USPS, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, and the Better Business Bureau are among the agencies involved. Much of the education campaign centers on common-sense tips, such as awareness of the fact that banks never e-mail or call for account numbers. Consumers also are advised to watch for warning signs, such as of- A free information session as part of National Consumer Protection Week is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday at the Main Post Office in High Point, 315 E.

The North Carolina Attorney General's Office received 22,665 consumer complaints in 2009, an increase of nearly 19 percent over the previous year. Complaints about health care, lending and telemarketing fraud topped the list, followed by Do Not Call violators, collections and credit companies, health clubs, motor vehicles, home furnishings, telecommunications and home repair. "Hard times can be boom times for scammers, especially those promising help with debts, loan modifications and lower credit card rates.

Lori Ann Harrison works on computerized seating chart, part of the new online system Mama Mia's is using to generate more customers. The system allows costumers to order meals and make reservations online. Local eatery goes high-tech to compete with larger chains BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER HIGH POINT � Mark Basile, director of operations at Mamma Mia's Italian Restaurant, had a crazy idea once. For several years, he wanted to implement an advance ordering service that would allow busy, on-the-go customers who wanted to have a sit-down meal at the restaurant to place their orders in advance so meals could be ready when they arrived. After some technological advances drove down the cost of such a system, Basile and Sal Looz, owner of the restaurant, implemented an advance online ordering system last week that allows customers to do just that. "I've been wanting to try this for a couple of years, but the technology wasn't where it needed to be," said Basile, a restaurant industry veteran who joined Mamma Mia's last year. "Now the process is simple and the cost is affordable." By visiting www.mammamiasonline.net, which is formatted for Apple's iPhone and other smartphones and mobile devices, cus- tomers can reserve a table and place their full orders online as well as placing to-go orders. Once a reservation or an order is placed, the restaurant's computer system `I called my 80-yearold grandmother and had her test out the system. If she can use it, anyone can use it.' Mark Basile Owner, Mama Mia's Italian Restaurant is notified, and Basile receives a notification on his mobile phone. Looz admittedly says business at his restaurant has suffered in an economic recession. The investment in the system, however, allows Mamma Mia's to compete with larger, chain restaurants that offer similar services. In fact, it may be the only independent restaurant in the area that has an advance ordering system, Basile said. "I've spoken to a lot of restaurants in the area, and I haven't seen anything like this there," he said. "Some pizza places let you order online, but even bigger restaurants like Olive Garden won't let you order in advance. This cuts out that whole middle process of placing your order when you arrive and waiting for the cooks to prepare it." The system also could draw more workers who have limited lunch breaks, Looz said. "This should be good for our customers in the medical profession coming in at lunch or dinner," he said. "It's good for when you are on the go or having a lunch meeting." The restaurant is now receiving several orders online each day, and Basile believes the process will be used more once customers become familiar with it. "I think once people get the hang of it, this is going to be very popular in the future," he said. "I called my 80-year-old grandmother and had her test out the system. If she can use it, anyone can use it." firstname.lastname@example.org | 888-3617 At the new hpe.com, you're just a few clicks of the mouse away from your best source for the news that impacts your community.

Judge considers sending ex-Edwards aide to jail PITTSBORO (AP) � A judge said Tuesday he is considering whether to send a former John Edwards aide to jail for contempt over his handling of a purported sex tape showing the former presidential candidate. Superior Court Judge Abraham Penn Jones said he was "troubled" by discrepancies in Andrew Young's statements. He said he would place Young and his wife in jail for up to 75 days for failing to turn over a DVD of pictures but allowed them time to explain themselves on the stand Tuesday afternoon. "I don't want to lock them up, but the pattern is really painful to me," Jones said. "I can't get my gut to rest right now." Lawyers for Edwards' mistress, Rielle Hunter, accused Andrew Young of "dozens of lies." They took issue with Young's handling of materials that Hunter is seeking, including the tape. Young described in written affidavits a limited number of people who have seen parts of the tape. But Hunter's attorneys produced an affidavit Tuesday of another man, freelance journalist Robert Draper, who said in a written statement to Robert McCandies Sr. LEXINGTON � Robert Alexander "Pepper" McCandies, Sr., 57, of Osprey Trail died March 6, 2010, at Kindred Hospital, Greensboro. Funeral will be held at 2:30 p.m. Thursday at Files Chapel Baptist Church. Arrangements are in the care of Roberts Funeral Service. AP Andrew Young, former aide to former Sen. John Edwards, and his wife Cheri Young, listen to the prosecution's arguments during a hearing at the Chatham County Superior Court House in Pittsboro on Tuesday. the court that Young also showed the tape to him in March 2009. Young said in testimony Tuesday afternoon that he and Draper had been drinking one night at their home and does not recall showing Draper the video. "Whether it's the wine, the time or the stress, I don't know," Young said. "But I have no recollection." After the testimony, Jones called for a brief break without making a decision on their fate. Cheri Young sobbed on a bench behind their attorneys. Hunter's attorneys have also accused Young of lying when he initially claimed that the only copies of the tape had been sealed for more than a year in an Atlanta safety deposit box. Young has since said he recently showed the video to ABC News as he prepared to promote his tell-all book with the program. An attorney for Young chalked up the discrepancies to "memory lapses" and said Young had done everything he could to turn over the materials to the court. The sex tape, along with photos and documents, have been placed under seal. "They've turned over everything," said lawyer Robert Elliot.

Friends and family enjoyed being a part of her events, not only because of the food but also because she made everyone feel so welcome. Before my husband and I were married, I met Edye for the first time at a dinner she hosted in my honor. Of course, I was nervous about meeting her and wanted to make a good impression. After the introductions, I followed her into the kitchen and offered to do what I could to help. She smiled and said, "No thank you, dear. I like to do things my way," and then she pointed to a poem she had framed and hung on her wall. The title was, "Stay out of My Kitchen," and she told me it had come from your "Keepers" booklet. Edye passed away two years ago, and the poem now hangs in my sisterin-law's kitchen. I think of my dear mother-inlaw every time I see it. How can I get some copies of your "Keepers" booklet?

Wednesday March 10, 2010 MORE NEIGHBORS: Students participate in mock trial. 6B 4B Neighbors: Vicki Knopfler email@example.com (336) 888-3601 A difficult life turns around rom her earliest memories, Ruth Fair felt that life was not fair. Growing up in a home where each girl had a different father, it was easy to compare the time and attention each dad gave his daughter. The fact was, Fair rarely saw her dad. "I started to lie, because I didn't like the truth. The truth was, my dad was an alcoholic, and he didn't keep his promises. And ABOVE the truth AND was, I was BEYOND jealous of my sisters," Patty Jo Fair said. Sawvel On top of this, Fair could not find a way to get enough attention from her mother. Fair's older sister, Anne, received attention for being the oldest, the prettiest and the sweetest. Janet was coddled as the baby. "I got my attention by acting out. I was the bad kid in the family," Fair said. To compound her pain and frustration, when she was 9 years old, a friend of her grandmother's began to molest her. "I hated Friday nights because I knew what to expect. I couldn't tell anyone because I knew that no one would believe me because I lied so much," Fair said. By middle school, Fair had earned the reputation as a bully. She beat kids up if they didn't bring her money. This worked until one girl came in with her mother instead of the cash. "I got called into the office and suspended. My mom whipped me and then put me on punishment for two months. After that I calmed down for a while," Fair said. But then the envy and anger began to creep back, and at age 14, she began smoking marijuana and running away from home. By the age of 16 she was an emancipated teen with lots of boyfriends, mostly five to 10 years older than her. "They gave me money and bought me things," Fair explained. She got an apartment and a 19-year-old alcoholic boyfriend who eventually moved her to Atlanta. There she began a 10-year love affair with crack cocaine. She would sacrifice anything to appease her addiction. Mostly to afford this expensive habit, she turned to prostitution. Jailed after a drug conviction, Fair was persuaded by a counselor to bridge the gap with her past and contact her mother. "I had not heard my mother's voice for 16 years. She said to me, `Are you ready to come home, now?' I said, `Yes,' " Fair said. At that point, Fair put her life in God's hands, chose to help instead of hurt others, graduated from college and now works at Winston-Salem State University. "If I can help just one person by telling my story that is a reward in itself," Fair said. PATTY JO SAWVEL is a freelance writer from Kernersville.

A urologist treated me for two years by instilling heparin into my bladder. He dismissed me by saying, "I don't want to see you again." I am at my wits' end with having to urinate so frequently. Is there anything that can be done for this condition? � J.M. Urgently and constantly running to the bathroom to empty the bladder is the principal sign of interstitial cystitis. Painful urination is another sign. It can make intercourse uncomfortable. Many women have seen doctor after doctor and have been treated for bladder infections, when the actual problem is IC. It often takes years before a light comes on to a doctor who finally makes the correct diagnosis. It's something that can happen to men, but women are the predominant victims. Something disrupts the protective layer of the bladder's surface. Irritating substances in the urine bathe the bladder surface to cause the symptoms. Helpful in making the diagnosis is a direct look into the bladder with a scope and finding changes typical of IC. One way to treat it is through dietary changes. Eliminate any food that seems to make matters worse. Acidic foods are the ones most often not tolerated. Citrus fruits and juices, tomatoes, chocolate, carbonated beverages, coffee, tea and alcohol frequently appear D BLONDIE B.C. on lists of foods to avoid. Prelief tablets buffer the acidity of food. This product is HEALTH made by AkPharma Dr. Paul � 800-994Donohue 4711 and on the Web at www. akpharma.com. Elmiron capsules (prescription required) have helped many.

Lindy lends talents High Point woman pens cookbook, teaches classes on gluten-free cooking BY JIMMY TOMLIN ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER IGH POINT � Lindy Clark has a word for the majority of gluten-free food that's out there � nasty. "I've never had anybody else's gluten-free food but my own, but everybody who has had it tells me it's nasty," says Clark, who champions her own recipes in her cookbook, "Lindy's Gluten-Free Goodies and More!" She's biased, of course, but the High Point woman clearly knows her way around the kitchen. And if you're looking for a more objective opinion, check out some of the reviews of Clark's book on Amazon.com. "It's obvious homework was done prior to gathering these recipes to find ones that may be gluten-free, but don't taste gluten-free," wrote one reviewer. "Thank goodness. Honestly, I made several and would never have guessed any difference." Clark's journey into the world of glutenfree cooking and baking began in earnest in February 2008, when she was diagnosed with a wheat allergy. Soon after, Clark's husband, Don, was also found to have a wheat allergy, so together they embarked on their glutenfree diet. "I've always done a lot of baking and cooking from scratch," Clark says. "I started experimenting with different flours, glutenfree, and I found an all-purpose flour that I really like, and I've been getting great results from it. Friends have told me for years that I should write a cookbook, so I started thinking, `Hmmm, maybe I'll write a glutenfree cookbook.'" The result is "Lindy's Gluten-Free Goodies," a collection of more than a hundred gluten-free recipes. Clark's specialty appears to be desserts, but the book also includes plenty of entrees, soups and sandwiches, breakfast foods, and breads and muffins. According to Clark, the recipes are simple, easy to follow and, perhaps most impor- H Pumpkin Cranberry Bread 1 1/4 cups gluten-free all-purpose flour 1 cup granulated sugar 3/4 teaspoon xanthan gum 1 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg 1 cup canned pumpkin 1/2 cup canola oil 2 eggs, lightly beaten 3/8 cup buttermilk 1/2 teaspoon butter flavoring 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 1/2 cup dried cranberries Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease four small loaf pans, 5 3/4 inches by 3 inches. In a large bowl, whisk together first seven ingredients. In a medium bowl, whisk together the next six ingredients; stir into the dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in the cranberries. Spoon batter into prepared loaf pans.

Each of the recipes has been taste-tested by individuals who aren't even required to eat gluten-free foods, and they still like them, she says. The taste-testers' comments are printed in the cookbook. Being able to fix gluten-free foods at home is important, Clark explains, because such foods are difficult to find when you eat out. "Eating out is almost impossible," she says, "but eating at home does not have to be difficult at all." Eating gluten-free is important for people with wheat allergies, but even more so for people with Celiac disease, a digestive disease that damages the small intestine and interferes with the absorption of nutrients. Unchecked, the disease results in malnutrition, which can lead to further complications and, in a small percentage of cases, can even be fatal. The only treatment is a gluten-free diet. "A person with Celiac has to stay away from wheat," Clark says. "It can be a very dangerous disease if you don't know what it is." In addition to her cookbook, Clark offers gluten-free cooking classes out of her home. Her March class is already full, but her next available class will be April 17, from 1 to 4 p.m. That class will focus on baking glutenfree sandwich breads.

As dinner ended, Unlucky Louie and I were engaged in discussing a deal. Preoccupied, Louie bit into his fortune cookie � and chomped down on the slip of paper inside. "What does it say?" I asked. Louie read this: "Take out the fortune before you eat the cookie." Louie's timing was no better in the deal we'd been talking about. Declaring 3NT, he won the second heart and finessed in clubs. His fortunes declined when East won and led his last heart. When Louie led a diamond next, West took the ace �� and two good hearts. Down one. THREAT Since West's heart suit is a threat, Louie must force out West's possible entry before the hearts are established. Since only East can win a club trick, Louie should start the diamonds at Trick Three. If West leads a third heart, Louie wins and finesses in clubs. If East can win, he'll have no more hearts (or, if he has one, South loses only two hearts, a diamond and a club). DAILY QUESTION You hold: S A J 6 4 2 H 8 2 D Q 5 C A 9 6 3. Your partner opens one diamond, you bid one spade and he rebids two diamonds. The opponents pass. What do you say? ANSWER: Your hand is promising but not quite strong enough to force to game (especially if your partner is apt to open light, shapely hands). Since your support is adequate, raise to three diamonds, hoping he can go on. A bid of three clubs would force to game.

AP LIFE&STYLE THE HIGH POINT ENTERPRISE WEDNESDAY, MARCH 10, 2010 www.hpe.com 3C Being right isn't always good enough ow often have you made a choice, in which you knew that you were right, yet it turned out wrong? If we, as adults and parents, can do this, what can we expect from our children, especially our teens? I still can't get over the fact that human brains don't fully develop until their early 20s. I learned this from a lecture by Dr. Bruce Powell, dean of a local private school, and expert on raising teenagers. So, for teens, their judgments, empathy and other functions, such as knowing when to keep their mouths shut, just aren't present. Yet, we often expect them to behave as if they were fully adult. Knowing our teen's limitations is the first step in knowing how to be the best parent you can be. Knowing my own failings and character flaws is further awareness for being that good parent that I'm always trying to be and advocate. In this regard, speaking from experience, letting go of my ego is often the biggest challenge. I remember a painful situation when a close male friend disappointed me. A group of us had a big trip planned to Thailand, and I allowed my "hurt feelings" to motivate me to come up with a lame excuse to bail out on the trip. Who did I end up hurting, regardless of H how "right" I felt? Only me. When they returned from the trip, glowingly describing the grand adventures they had, I still felt "right," but I was the one that missed out. Our kids rarely take the A DAD'S time to mull over a decision and its consequences. POINT Our job is to try to guide OF VIEW them without always lecturing them so that they Bruce just turn off the volume. Sallan You can always tell when that happens by the blank look on their faces when you're still droning on, oblivious to their having turned you off long ago. So, since our teens don't have mature brains, literally and figuratively, it is imperative that we teach them that maturity and help them make the right choices. They are too often guided by their "feelings" rather than good common sense � and, to some degree, by their peers. Our kids are more interested in approval of their peers' than approval of their parents, so it really is like the blind leading the blind. A painful example of how this manifests itself took place in our household shortly after the holidays. As we'd all been apart during the Christmas season, when we had our first meal together we continued a Friday-night tradition that our family has of sharing the best and worst things that occurred in the previous week. In this case, we all had many things to share, as we'd been apart for several weeks. My wife and younger son began by sharing the many terrific experiences they'd just enjoyed on their trip to Japan and Hong Kong. It was joyful to hear, and I was so glad it turned out well for them. In their absence, I had the chance to have some really longneglected alone time with my 16-yearold who, for the most part, has been consumed by his self-involved life and his girlfriend. That time was indeed special to both of us. So, when it came his turn to "share," he tactlessly expressed that he was glad that his step-mom and brother were gone, since it gave him some great alone time with his dad. I know what he meant, he knew what he meant, but the words were clearly indelicate and hurt my wife's feelings. He tried to cover it up, as he saw the look of hurt on her face, but the damage had already been done. I didn't really recognize the mistake he made until much later, as being his parent since birth, I knew him better, and didn't at first even see a problem. I later realized it was a classic example of the teen brain speaking before thinking. Sadly, my wife took it too much to heart and really allowed his poor choice of words to create an ongoing awkwardness between all of us. And, sadly, I didn't "get it" soon enough to assuage her feelings and "fix" the situation. Remember, we men always have to "fix" it, if possible. Who was right and who was wrong was irrelevant, but it became a lesson for my son in learning to think a little bit, before he speaks, and it became a lesson for me in recognizing when my wife might be hurt quicker than I did. I think the ultimate lesson, for all of us, is not to hold onto being right but be more concerned about being kind, thoughtful and aware of those close to us and how things we do may affect them. I'm still learning. BRUCE SALLAN gave up his showbiz career a decade ago to raise his two boys, now 12 and 16.

BY MICHELLE LOCKE FOR THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Looking for bargains? Check out the sales today in APA, Calif. � Thousands of people visit the Domaine Carneros Winery each year, snapping pictures in front of the 18th-century style chateau and sipping wine on the terrace overlooking a sweep of green vineyards. Now, the winery hopes to extend the experience with new, sample-sized bottle kits that aim to send the tasting room experience home � you read the tasting notes, you sip, you rekindle those sensory memories. All without ponying up for a full bottle of untried wine � or stripping down for an airport security check. "You can stay in Iowa or New York or Miami, wherever you are, and you can have this experience come to you," says Eileen Crane, CEO and founding winemaker of Domaine Carneros. The idea seems simple enough. You try sample sizes of drapes, mouthwash and wallpaper. Why not wine? But test-driving wine isn't as simple as opening a big bottle and pouring it into a bunch of little ones, says Tim Bucher, CEO and founder of TastingRoom Inc., which launched last year and is making the 50-milliliter samples for Domaine Carneros. For one thing, wine is sensitive to oxygen. So if a little bit is exposed to a lot of oxygen, which is what would happen if you merely poured wine through a funnel, that will change the character of the wine. Beyond that, each winery has its own method of bottling, such as "sparging," in which bottles are filled with an inert gas before filling to ensure the right conditions. Bucher's process involves a patent-pending technology called Total Anaerobic Sample Transfer Environment � TASTE � that aims to replicate what the winery does on a minia- N ture scale. Transfers are conducted in a sealed, zero-oxygen chamber, similar to a semiconductor "clean room," and the goal is to come up with something that duplicates the tasting room experience. "For us it was never 'Wow, my tasting rooms are gold. I asked myself how could I scale my tasting rooms intergalactically.' Tim Bucher TastingRoom Inc. about taking wine from a barrel and just putting it into a smaller vessel. That would not capture the real product that wineries are selling," Bucher says. While it's hard to say for certain this hasn't been done, sample-size wine bottles appear to be new, says Robert Smiley, director of wine industry programs in the Graduate School of Management at the University of California, Davis. It's too early to say whether the kits will be successful, but they sound like a good idea, he says. "I'm all for innovation." For Bucher, the power of try-and-buy wine grew out of his experiences at his own winery. Going over the books, he realized, "Wow, my tasting rooms are gold. I asked myself how could I scale my tasting rooms intergalactically." Another player in the small-is-big trend is San Francisco-based Crushpad, the do-it-yourself winery where individuals can select fruit and supervise the making of small batches of wine to get the vintner experience without the farming headaches (and sizable capital investment). Crushpad's "Tiny Bottles," also 50 milliliter, use an oxygen-free transfer system and are being used in conjunc- tion with Brixr, a Webbased tasting service. At Domaine Carneros, the kits will be available in the Napa Valley tasting room � price about $25 � and also will be offered to wine club members as a convenient, low-cost way to try wines. Domaine Carneros is primarily known for its sparkling wines, so the six-bottle kits are being used to showcase its lesser-known still wines. "We think it's a wonderful way for people to reconnect with the winery," says Crane. 211 W.

That is because every time you think that Jim Morgan has done it all and won it all � he does it again. This time, Jim partnered with his wife Ann for the newest contribution to our community � their donation to the High Point Library Foundation. With ABOUT family, TOWN friends and Mary community Bogest leaders on hand, the dedication of the Ann and Jim Morgan Community Room was held recently at the High Point Public Library followed by a celebratory buffet at the High Point Country Club. Please don't tell me that you haven't been to the High Point Public Library lately. Although the expansive transformation still is a work in progress, it is already very impressive and another jewel in our community. I remember when the architectural plans were first unveiled along with the High Point Library Foundation at a dinner over two years ago. It was then that the Foundation's Chairman of the Board Charles Alt explained the reason for the need of the Library Foundation. He told community leaders that the approved bond issues provided just enough funding for the brick and mortar as construction costs had skyrocketed. He compared the situation to the newlywed couple "who buys the big house and then doesn't have any money to buy furniture." Jim and Ann Morgan were at that dinner, and Jim wasted no time in exclaiming, "Ann and I want dibs on the community room." The evening of the dedication was the culmination in the creation of the community room but only the beginning of what the Ann and Jim Morgan Community Room will mean to our community. Located on the first floor, the room seats 45 as a classroom setting or 75 in theatre style. It also includes state of the art electronic equipment including a LCD projector and stereo speakers. Over 200 invited guests arrived at the Library for the dedication and the unveiling of the portrait of Jim and Ann created by Studio 104. Jim took the opportunity to pose the question that per A MARY BOGEST | HPE Ann and Jim Morgan pose with a portrait of themselves that will hang in the Ann and Jim Morgan Community Room in the High Point Public Library. haps many of you may ask, "Why are Ann and I involved with the High Point Public Library when it is funded by tax dollars?" The answer was immediate, "It is because we believe in education and what better place than the library. Many of us know there are homes that don't even have one book." Hearts melted as Jim and Ann's grandchildren spoke of what books meant to them. The littlest granddaughter, Anna Kathryn, said just one word, "Dora," while their grandson said, "I like to read because it takes me to places I could never have imagined that I could go." Jim expressed pride in the High Point Library, "I don't know if there is a library anywhere in the world any nicer or grander than our High Point Public Library. I hope to instill the passion in all of you to continue to make our library one of the nicest libraries anywhere." To that I will add "bravo." Nearly 1,000 people use the library every day. I cringe when I hear people theorize that the book will go the way of the dinosaur. I love the feel of reading a book, curled up and snug with a book in hand and my dog Muffin asleep on my lap. Personally, I want nothing to do with an electronic book reader. I just am not a techie. I want to turn each page. Remember the saying to describe a really good tome, "This book is a real page turner." What would it become? How does this sound? "This digital electronic reader is a real ... what?" Our library offers much more than books. It offers CDs, DVDs, books on tape, educational services and online services including live homework help, learning a new language, computer access and on and on. To continue the excellence and deserved reputation our library needs more than the dwindling tax dollars which provides only the basic needs but does not address new demands and higher expectations. That is why the High Point Library Foundation will remain a vital funding force. Donations are needed. They are tax deductible. Just ask Library Director Kem Ellis (kem.ellis@highpointnc. gov or 336-883-3694), how you can help. After the dedication, the Morgans hosted a cocktail buffet at the High Point Country Club. Both Jim and Ann personally welcomed their guests. To each and all they resounded the sentiment "Thank you for being our friend. Thank you for supporting our High Point Library!" That isn't the only "deja vu all over again" that Jim has pulled off lately. I know that you have read about the resurgence of the "Bring it Home High Point" campaign. Jim was chairman of the board of directors for the High Point Convention & Visitors Bureau (HPCVB) back in 1992 when he first introduced the idea. Fast forward to 2010. Not only is the "Bring it Home High Point Campaign" back in full swing, so is Jim Morgan as chairman of the Board of Directors for HPCVB. This happened recently after reigning chairman Chris Adams had to resign to accept a new job that required a transfer. As vice chairman, Morgan once again stepped up to the plate. And that is what "Bring it Home High Point" is asking us to do for our hometown. Each person who "steps up to the plate" can make a difference. When speaking at the "Bring it Home High Point" press conference, Jim quoted his oft-quoted friend, HPU President Nido Qubein. to describe exactly what each of us can do, "Don't just think outside of the box. Throw the box away." We can all "brag" about our hometown. We have the NC Shakespeare Festival, HPU, NC Marathon, Furniture Capital of the World and on and on. What we say about our hometown will come back to us. We all have an interest in bringing groups to High Point for meetings, conventions, for fun. The HPCVB is challenging our entire community to "BRING IT." Be creative. Think about what you can do for High Point. Just multiply that "one person can make a difference" and see what happens. Charlotte Young, president & CEO of HPCVB also said that speaking engagements are another aspect of "Bring it Home, High Point." The CVB will be happy to talk to your organization. Just call Nancy Bowman at 884-5255 or nbowman@ highpoint.org. This is all about High Point, our hometown.

Andrews girls bench BY STEVE HANF ENTERPRISE SPORTS WRITER WHO'S NEWS --- HIGH POINT � After 10 years of long days with the T. Wingate Andrews girls basketball players, Weaver Walden has decided to shift his focus to some other kids. His own. Walden recently informed Red Raiders athletic director Ben Robinson of his intention to resign after 10 years at the school. Walden spent the last four years as head coach of the varsity girls squad after leading the JV girls the previous six seasons. "The grind and the late nights, the bus trips, practices every day � it got to a point in my life where I need to be at home more to see my own kids grow and develop and mature," Walden said. "That was the main impetus." Walden and his wife Gerita celebrated the birth of a son four months ago, and Walden also has 6-year-old twin daughters. The demands of coaching basketball often had Walden leaving straight from his fourth-grade teaching job at Fairview Elementary to hit the Andrews gym, which weighed on the coach over the course of the season. As for Robinson's re- action to the news? "I felt bad at first. He's a great man, a great coach, he's great for our girls," said the athletic director. "I'm a little sad about it, but at the same time, I completely understand. Family does come first, and I respect him even more for it." The Andrews girls made the playoffs all four of Walden's seasons and finished second in the PAC-6 this most recent campaign with a 9-13 record. More than wins and losses, though, Walden was proud to have watched five Raiders during his tenure go on to play in college. "I really enjoyed all my years at Andrews," Walden said. "The parents I've had, the players, the administrators, they've been great to me over the years. Andrews will always have a special place in my heart." Robinson plans to post the coaching vacancy later this week and take applications for about a month. He hopes to have a new hire in place by May � someone capable of filling Walden's big shoes. "He put a lot of time and effort into Andrews High School and we appreciate everything he has done," Robinson said. email@example.com | 888-3526 AP Maryland's Greivis Vasquez shoots over Duke's Jon Scheyer (30) late in the second half of their game on March 3 in College Park, Md. The Terrapins won 79-72. Vasquez earned the ACC player of the year award on Tuesday, receiving 39 of 53 votes from the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association. Scheyer finished second with 12 votes. Duke in familiar territory at ACC Tournament DURHAM (AP) � Duke always has a target on its back, and the fourth-ranked Blue Devils figure it's gotten bigger lately. That's because they'll make the cross-state trip to Greensboro for the ACC Tournament this week as the defending champion and its No. 1 seed � the first time that's happened since 2006, when J.J. Redick was the star and the leaders of the present-day Blue Devils were still in high school. The Blue Devils (26-5, 13-3) shared the league's regular-season crown with Maryland and won the tiebreaker to claim the top seed. They begin tournament play Friday against the Virginia-Boston College winner. For Duke's seniors, it's a chance to take the next step forward in careers marked by steady progress in the postseason tournaments. They arrived in Durham shortly after the Redickled group had polished off the proud program's run of seven league tournament titles in eight years and wound up taking their lumps while the rest of the frustrated ACC took turns paying them back for the series of past beatings, going one-and-done in both the ACC and NCAA tournaments. The following season, they matured enough to win one game in each tournament. Last year, they had No. 2 seeds in both events, winning the ACC event before advancing to the NCAA's second weekend for the first time since '06. ACC names Vasquez player of the year RALEIGH (AP) � Greivis Vasquez accepted the Atlantic Coast Conference's top individual honor the same way he plays the game: with boundless emotion. The Maryland star was named the ACC's player of the year on Tuesday following a season in which he proved himself as one of the league's top all-around players and most interesting personalities. "Four years of working so hard, just getting the award � unbelievable," Vasquez said while thanking his coaches, teammates, family and his entire native country, Venezuela. "It means the world to me." Vasquez, a unanimous all-ACC selection who averaged 19.6 points and led Maryland to a share of the regular-season title, was an overwhelming choice by 53 voting members of the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association. He received 39 votes to 12 for Duke's Jon Scheyer and two for Virginia Tech's Malcolm Delaney, the only other two unanimous all-conference picks. "He's a four-year player that's gotten better every year and has had a great senior year," coach Gary Williams said. "He's been involved in all the big situations coming through the last month. In a year where there are other deserving players in the league, I'm happy for Greivis that he won the award." Vasquez, the sixth Maryland player to win the award and first since Juan Dixon in 2002, will end his career as the only player in ACC history with 2,000 points, 700 assists and 600 rebounds. He reached double figures in the Terrapins' final 26 games, played a key role in his team's current seven-game winning streak and saved some of his best performances for the biggest stages. He had a career-high 41 points in a double-overtime win at Virginia Tech, scored 26 in a satisfying rout of North Carolina and had 20 points � plus a key basket in the final minute � in a 79-72 win against Duke in his final game at home. Maryland's Gary Williams is the Atlantic Coast Conference's coach of the year. The ACC on Tuesday named Williams as its top coach as determined by a vote of the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association. Williams was an overwhelming choice to win the award for the second time and first since 2002 � when he won the national championship. He received 42 of 53 votes. Duke's Mike Krzyzewski was second with eight votes. Williams' Terrapins enter this week's ACC tournament in Greensboro as the league's hottest team. They have won seven straight, hold the No. 2 seed and earned a share of the regular-season title with a 13-3 league record � their best since going 15-1 during the national title season in 200102. Maryland faces the Georgia Tech-North Carolina winner in Friday's 7 p.m. quarterfinal at the Greensboro Coliseum. TOPS ON TV --- HIT AND RUN he Greensboro Coliseum ranks as the most frequent stop for the men's ACC Tournament. The Gate City has hosted 21 previous tourneys. This season will mark No. 22. Trying to pick your favorite ACC Tournament in Greensboro is like trying to name your favorite Elvis song or your favorite color for an M&M. They're all good. But for me, the 1975 ACC Tournament stands out for several reasons. I wouldn't call it my favorite ACC Tournament, just my most memorable. It's the first tournament I recall watching from start to finish. I was nine years old at --- T the time and really hooked on ACC roundball. That tourney had it all. None of the six games was decided by more than six points. Two of the games went into overtime and every game remained in doubt until the final minute. The first round saw UNC outlast Wake Forest 101-100 in overtime, Clemson nip Duke 78-76 and N.C. State oust Virginia 91-85. In the semifinals, the Wolfpack edged the Terps 87-85 and the Tar Heels tamed the Tigers 76-71 in OT. Carolina slipped past State 70-66 in the final. Besides all of the close games, we witnessed one of the most amazing displays of ACC star power ever gathered in one setting. Defending national champion N.C. State showcased David Thompson, Monte Towe, Mo Rivers, Phil Spence, Tim Stoddard and Kenny Carr. North Carolina countered with a deep team led by Phil Ford, Mitch Kupchak, Walter Davis and Tommy LaGarde. Wake Forest featured hotshot guard Skip Brown, while Clemson had the inside-outside tandem of Tree Rollins and Skip Wise. For Virginia, Wally Walker led the way, while Maryland's lineup included John Lucas and Mo Howard. It all came together 35 years ago to create an unforgettable tournament mix. � MARK MCKINNEY ENTERPRISE SPORTS EDITOR Noon, ESPN � College basketball, Big East Tournament, second-round game 2:20 p.m., ESPN � College basketball, Big East Tournament, second-round game 7 p.m., SportSouth � Basketball, Bobcats at 76ers 7 p.m., FSN � Hockey, Hurricanes at Capitals 7 p.m., ESPN � College basketball, Big East Tournament, second-round game 7 p.m., ESPN2 � College basketball, Northeast Conference Tournament, title game 9 p.m., ESPN � College basketball, Big East Tournament, second-round game 9 p.m., ESPN2 � College basketball, Big Sky Tournament, title game 11 p.m., FSN � College basketball, Pac-10 Tournament, first-round game INDEX SCOREBOARD PREPS NBA HPU ROUNDUP COLLEGE HOOPS BUSINESS STOCKS WEATHER 2D 3D 3D 4D 4D 5D 5D 6D YOUR COMMUNITY.

Wofford beats Appalachian State, earns first NCAA Tournament berth CHARLOTTE (AP) � Cameron Rundles scored 20 points and Wofford used stifling defense to overcome a long secondhalf scoring drought and beat Appalachian State 56-51 on Monday night for the Southern Conference title and its first NCAA Tournament berth. The school perhaps best known in sports circles as being the training camp home of the Carolina Panthers won its 13th straight game despite going nearly 10 minutes without a point. The Terriers (26-8), who moved up to Division I in the mid-1990s, also got 13 rebounds from Tim Johnson to overcome 35 percent shooting. It led to a dancing and singing celebration on the floor as Wofford set a team record for victories in a season, a year after going 16-14.

Andrew Williamson scored 12 points and Ryann Abraham added 11 for Appalachian. But its top two scorers � Donald Sims and Kellen Brand � combined to shoot 2 of 23.

The Mountaineers did get within 48-44 on Abraham's four-point play with 2:24 left. NASCAR puts Edwards on probation for three races CHARLOTTE (AP) � Sticking with its "boys, have at it" attitude, NASCAR placed Carl Edwards on probation for three races Tuesday for deliberately wrecking Brad Keselowski's car last weekend in Atlanta.

NASCAR president Mike Helton said Edwards acted unacceptably Sunday but did not cross the line in what the sanctioning body will allow this season. NASCAR promised in January to give the drivers more leeway in policing themselves and settling scores in an effort to energize the sport.

Georgia Tech's Favors named ACC rookie of year THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Derrick Favors walked onto Georgia Tech's campus followed by plenty of high expectations as one of the program's most touted recruits in recent years. He'll enter this week's Atlantic Coast Conference tournament as the league's top newcomer. Favors was named ACC rookie of the year for the 2009-10 season after earning 45 of 53 votes from members of the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association in results released Tuesday. Maryland's Jordan Williams was second with six votes after helping the Terrapins earn a share of the league's regular-season title. Favors is the 11th Georgia Tech player to win the award and first since Chris Bosh in 2003. No other school has won more than eight times. Big things were expected right away from Favors, a McDonald's All-American who was the preseason choice for rookie of the year after a stellar prep career in Atlanta. "I just worked hard," Favors said. "I worked on all my weaknesses and got stronger. I just didn't pay any attention to the pressure." The 6-foot-10 Favors averaged 11.9 points and 8.4 rebounds this season to lead all league freshmen in scoring, rebounding, double-doubles, blocked shots and shooting percentage. He was named rookie of the week four times this season. 57TH ANNUAL ACC TOURNAMENT --- AT THE GREENSBORO COLISEUM TODAY'S PRACTICES (OPEN TO THE PUBLIC; ADMISSION, PARKING ARE FREE) Virginia 10-10:55 a.m.; Boston College 11-11:55 a.m.; Miami 12-12:55 p.m.; Georgia Tech 1-1:55 p.m.; Wake Forest 2-2:55 p.m.; Clemson 3-3:55 p.m.; N.C.

Those estimates do not include potential payouts for wrongful death and injury lawsuits, which could reach in the tens of millions each. Still, the sheer volume of cases involving U.S. Toyota owners claiming lost value � 6 million or more � could prove far more costly, adding up to losses in the billions for the automaker. Such class-action lawsuits "are more scary for Toyota than the cases where people actually got injured," said Tom Baker, a University of Pennsylvania law professor. "A super-big injury case would be $20 million. But you could have millions of individual car owners who could (each) be owed $1,000. If I were Toyota, I'd be more worried about those cases." As Toyota continues to deal with the recalls and wavering public confidence in its vehicle safety, its biggest financial fight may be in the courtroom. A key decision could come at a March 25 hearing in San Diego, where a panel of federal judges will consider whether to consolidate the mushrooming cases into a single jurisdiction. After that, a judge will decide whether all claims filed by Toyota owners nationwide can be combined in a single legal action � known as "certifying a class" � and whether the claims have enough merit to move toward either trial or settlement.

Stocks have lost some of the momentum that propelled the Dow Jones industrial average up 4,017 points, or 61.4 percent, from its close of 6,547 on March 9, 2009. And so investors are waiting for signs that the economy is ready to put up some solid, sustainable growth numbers. The most likely trigger: job growth. But that doesn't mean the market isn't going to have its fitful moments. On Tuesday, the financial companies that led stocks higher in the past year again drove trading. Analysts said financial shares rallied as investors reacted to rumors that the government might prohibit the trades known as short sales in stocks of companies it owns. The government has large stakes in Citigroup Inc., American International Group Inc. and mortgage companies Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac after bailing them out during the 2008 financial crisis. "A lot of the gains we already enjoyed have been in anticipation of economic progress which has not yet occurred," said Lawrence Creatura, portfolio manager at Federated Clover Investment Advisors.

In the U.S. and Canada, Burger King's sales in locations open at least a year fell 8.2 percent over the two-month period. More than 75 percent of Burger King stores are in the central and eastern U.S. � the two regions hit hardest by the storms.

"It's pre-crop report jitters," said Richard Feltes, senior vice president and director of commodity research at MF Global. Feltes predicted the USDA will say that more soybeans and corn were produced in the Southern Hemisphere than previously forecast. Additional supply hurts prices in the futures market. The report will also give an update on U.S. production from 2009 plantings. Chevron Corp. said Tuesday it will cut 2,000 jobs this year and sell some overseas operations as it revamps its struggling refinery, marketing and transportation operations. The job cuts represent almost 12 percent of its 17,000 workers in the so-called downstream part of its business and just over 3 percent of its overall work force. Executives of the secondlargest U.S. oil producer are still deciding where and when they will eliminate the jobs as they try to complete the restructuring by the third quarter, company spokesman Lloyd Avram said. Additional cuts are expected next year. Chevron said it will also seek bids for the Pembroke refinery in southwest Wales, and fuels marketing, aviation and lubricants businesses in the Caribbean and some markets in Central America. Oil refineries, which turn crude into gasoline, diesel and other fuels, struggled amid rising oil prices and falling demand last year.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Tuesday that "quick action is needed," calling on the U.S. to "make a gesture" and curb the trades. Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou, in Washington, DC to meet with President Barack Obama, is also calling for curbs on speculation which he blames for making his country's debt crisis worse. The European Commission threatened to ban "purely speculative naked sales on credit default swaps of sovereign debt" and said it would ask for a similar move globally at the Group of 20 summit of leading and emerging economies in June. JetBlue scales back growth plans NEW YORK � JetBlue says it is slowing down deliveries of new aircraft to steady its growth and control costs. The airline, based in Forest Hills, N.Y., will now take delivery of 4 Airbus A320s next year instead of the 8 previously planned, and 4 Embraer 190s this year instead of 5, CEO Dave Barger said speaking at an investor conference on Tuesday. JetBlue has also pushed back two A320 deliveries and seven Embraer deliveries in 2012. As recently as 2006, the company was taking delivery of a new plane every 10 days. Since Barger took the helm in 2007, the company has focused on scaling back its growth to avoid the hefty losses commonly seen at bigger airlines.

YHOO 16.53 Oil settles lower, ending brief rally NEW YORK (AP) � Oil prices trimmed some early losses, but still ended lower Tuesday, after rising steadily since the end of last week. Benchmark crude for April delivery lost 38 cents to settle at $81.49 per barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Earlier, oil dropped as low as $80.16. Tradition Energy analyst Addison Armstrong said the dollar strengthened against the euro ahead of talks between President Barack Obama and the Prime Minister of Greece, which has been reeling from financial turmoil. Phil Flynn of PFGBest said reports that China may stop tying its currency to the dollar gave a boost to the greenback as well, "helping to bring inflated oil back down to earth." A stronger dollar makes crude more expensive for investors holding foreign currencies. The Energy Information Administration's monthly Short-Term Energy Outlook released Tuesday continued to offer a relatively stable outlook for oil and gasoline prices this year.

BUSINESS --- FAMOUS, FABULOUS --- Continental to cancel flights to avoid fines for delays DALLAS (AP) � Continental Airlines plans to cancel flights rather than risk stiff fines under new federal rules designed to punish carriers for delaying passengers. CEO Jeff Smisek said Tuesday the result will be that passengers will have more trouble getting to their destinations. A spokesman for the U.S. Transportation Department said airlines can avoid fines by doing a better job of scheduling flights and crews. Under a Transportation Department rule taking effect next month, airlines can be fined up to $27,500 per passenger if planes are delayed three hours and passengers can't get off. Smisek said at an investor conference in New York that long delays are rare, and mostly caused by an outdated air traffic control system that the government has failed to upgrade. Airline industry officials say they should decide whether to wait out Funeral service held for Osmond's son PROVO, Utah � Marie Osmond's 18-year-old son was remembered at a funeral service Monday with fond words, laughter and music from his famous singing family. Michael Bryan's uncle, Donny Osmond, also appealed to God in an opening prayer. "Bless my sister," he said, breaking into tears. "Bless my sister and her family." Smith colonoscopy to air on show NEW YORK � "The Early Show" co-anchor Harry Smith is scheduled to have a colonoscopy today, with live reports planned Smith as he undergoes the procedure at a New York hospital. CBS says it will be the first time an anchor has had a colonoscopy live on network television.

Germany: Man jailed for Crawford extortion BERLIN (AP) � A German man who tried to blackmail supermodel Cindy Crawford with a photo of her bound and gagged 7-year-old daughter was sentenced to two years in jail Tuesday. Edis Kayalar, 26, was found guilty after confessing that he tried to extort euro100,000 ($135,888) from Crawford and her husband Rande Gerber last year using the photo, the court in the southern German town of Kirchheim unter Tech said. The picture, which showed the child gagged and tied to a chair, was reportedly taken by a former nanny during a "cops and robbers" game.

Smisek said many passengers on delayed flights "really want to go to LA or Mumbai, but the government by God says, 'We're going to fine you $27,500.' Here's what we're going to do: We're going to cancel the flight." Because airlines have cut flights, passengers will have fewer chances to rebook on another flight. Passengers, he said, won't get to their destinations "for maybe days." Fawcett's Oscar omission no accident LOS ANGELES � The executive director of the film academy says Farrah Fawcett wasn't included in the Academy Awards In Memoriam segment because the actress was better known as a TV star. Bruce Davis says it was a difficult decision for the committee to omit Fawcett and that he's not surprised that some fans and family members are upset. ENTERPRISE NEWS SERVICE REPORTS Job openings up sharply in January WASHINGTON (AP) � Job openings rose sharply earlier this year, evidence that employers are slowly ramping up hiring. The number of openings in January rose about 7.6 percent, to 2.7 million, compared with December, the Labor Department said. That's the highest total since February 2009. Hiring is critical to sustaining the economic recovery because job growth boosts incomes and helps restore the confidence needed to drive consumer spending. There are now about 5.5 unemployed people, on average, competing for each opening. That's still far more than the 1.7 people who were competing for each opening when the recession began. But it's down from just over 6 people per opening in December 2009. Economists were encouraged by the report but cautioned that hiring will likely increase only gradually this year. "It's getting better, though not as quickly as you'd like," said Dan Greenhaus, chief economic strategist at Miller Tabak. The economy has lost 8.4 million jobs since the recession began, the largest drop since the 1930s. Producer admits to attempted Letterman shakedown NEW YORK (AP) � A television producer admitted Tuesday to trying to shake down David Letterman in a case that bared the late-night icon's affairs with staffers, avoiding a long prison sentence by pleading guilty in exchange for six months in jail and community service. Robert "Joe" Halderman, 52, entered the plea in a Manhattan court to attempted grand Halderman l a r c e n y after being accused of demanding $2 million to keep quiet about the late-night comic's workplace love life.
