Judge refuses to end Arnold case Inside...


Commissioner’s financial woes continue. 1B


GUILFORD COUNTY – A federal judge refused last week to end Guilford County Commissioner Steve Arnold’s 2007 bankruptcy case and scolded him for attempting to avoid a $1.2 million debt. Arnold, a High Point Republican, signed a line of credit for his construction company, Arcon Inc., with Manuel and Christine Perkins in 2002. A Guilford

County Superior Court judgment later ordered Arnold to repay the Perkinses for the Brightwood Farm subdivision project loan after Arnold stopped payments in 2005 and the parties reached new settlement terms in 2006. U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Thomas W. Waldrep Jr. found that Arnold attempted to avoid repaying the land development loan by transferring several properties to family members in May 2007, but he also ruled that the Perkinses, the only creditors to sue Arnold, failed to prove their unfair and deceptive trade practices claim against Arnold in the Chapter 7 bankruptcy case. “The Perkinses have shown by a preponderance of the evidence

that Mr. Arnold had the fraudulent intent to hinder, delay, or defraud his creditors,” the judge concluded. “Arnold violated the bankruptcy code and is Arnold not entitled to receive a bankruptcy discharge.” Waldrep denied the Perkinses’ claim partly because the state’s unfair practices law requires a showing of damages to consumers or the marketplace. Arnold transferred several land parcels, located near his house and adjacent to his parents’ residence, to his parents and fatherin-law, according to court records, including 12 acres at Avondale


Street to Joel Carter, his fatherin-law. Arnold testified in a December 2007 bankruptcy hearing that releasing the properties just days before a court hearing was a coincidence, but he acknowledged that the property was transferred “to preclude one of my creditors from coming after it.” “Arnold transferred properties to different family members, just before the close of business on a Friday,” the judge concluded, “knowing that a judgment would be entered against him the following Monday morning. The court refused to believe this was a coincidence.”

Consumer complaints


Slumping economy led to more scams in ’09 BY PAUL B. JOHNSON ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

TRIAD – It appears that one group didn’t experience a slow year in 2009 – con artists. The Better Business Bureau of Central North Carolina reported last week on the top 10 scams people reported to the nonprofit consumer protection group during 2009.

Leading types of scams during 2009 in Piedmont:

The scams range from fictitious lottery winnings and mortgage rescue offers to phony debt collection and job hunting schemes. Of the top 10 scams in the central Piedmont covered by the local BBB, all but one involve an economic, business or financial hook to lure in victims. The scams range from fictitious lottery winnings and mortgage rescue offers to phony debt collection and job hunting schemes, the BBB reports. The number of scams or attempted scams monitored by the BBB increased during 2009, a development attributed to the sour economy, said Tom Corrigan, spokesman for the Greensboro-based group. The BBB estimates that it received about 20 percent more scam calls in 2009 than 2008. “Not only are there more scams, but what I am able

Lottery scam – The victims receive a notice indicating they’ve won millions. But they have to wire hundreds of dollars to get their winnings. The check bounces after the scammers have received the wire transfer. Foreclosure “rescue” – Loan scammers ask victims to pay upfront costs of hundreds of dollars. But they never get the help they need. Mystery shopping – The victim is asked to shop a few places and wire money. A seemingly real looking check is supposed to cover the costs, but ends up being fake. Debt restructuring – People are tricked into paying the scammers and only later find out that their credit card debt hasn’t gone away. Robocalls – The robocalls often claim that someone’s auto warranty is about to expire — which isn’t true — or offers help in reducing interest rates on credit cards. Phony debt collectors – Con artists call and say someone owes money to a store from years ago and they purchased the debt. The victim is pressured to pay. Job hunter scams – Scams targeting job hunters vary, including offers to find employment for an upfront fee or attempts to gain access to personal financial information such as bank account numbers. Work from home scam – Many people thought they were getting a job with reputable company when they were being lured into a scheme. Friend/family in distress – Also known as the grandma scam, the victim receives a call or message on Facebook from a friend or family member claiming that they are outside the country and have gotten into trouble. The victim is asked to wire thousands of dollars to pay for lawyer’s fees or to post bail; none of it is true. Transient contractors – They claim they have left over construction supplies that they can sell or use at a steep discount. But they take the money and flee.

Charlotte mayor’s wife resigns from job that sparked debate MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE


Eugene Merriman, of Richmond, Va., works on some of the welding stations in a new Army Ordnance training facility at Fort Lee in Petersburg, Va.

‘Fort Lee Mirage’ dampens expansion enthusiasm PETERSBURG, Va. (AP) – The expansion of Fort Lee has created a building boom on the base and generated elation among local officials eager to share in the military’s $1.4 billion investment in a recessionary economy. Then the Army announced plans to build what is believed to be the largest hotel in Virginia – a $120 million, 1,000-room military lodging center – and some of the happy buzz turned to talk of betrayal. The criticism is coming from developers and small business people

The Army and others involved in the expansion contend they never specifically encouraged hoteliers to build so many rooms. who have invested more than $120 million to build 1,200 hotel rooms for the thousands of military students expected to report to Fort Lee. Now they wonder if those rooms will ever be filled. “They were told four years ago build, build, build,” said Linas J. Kojelis, who leads the Greater Tri-Cities Hospitality Coalition, representing 170 hotel owners and small businesses. When the military hotel was announced late last summer, “Frankly we were all shocked. Nobody had heard of this thing.” The Army and others involved in the expansion contend they never specifically encouraged hoteliers to build so many rooms and add that their projections show the private hospitality sector will still share in the expansion, though not to its inflated expectations. Still, the Army maintains its

Seen is the housing near the training facilities for the Army Ordnance division at Fort Lee in Petersburg, Va. first obligation is to ensure onbase accommodations for those who report to Fort Lee for training, as well as other military-related visitors. “It’s not in our best interest to see hoteliers fail, but that also is not the Army’s primary concern here,” said Pete Isaacs of the Army’s Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation Command. The proposed hotel would be the largest ever built by the command and a congressional subcommittee has put the project on hold while it examines various local concerns. The subcommittee, expected to re-

spond this month, could stop the hotel, scale it back or approve the project. The expansion of Fort Lee, announced under the Base Realignment and Closure Act in 2005, is widely viewed as an economic plus for the region and Petersburg, where unemployment stands at 13 percent. Already more than $1 billion worth of contracts have been awarded to build the nearly 15 million square feet of new construction called for by the expansion. Currently there are 1,000 construction workers on the job. “Given the economic situation we’re in, if we didn’t have that expansion we’d be in a world of hurt economically,” said Rep. J. Randy Forbes, a Republican whose district encompasses the base and surrounding communities. When completed in 2011, Fort Lee will house once-scattered elements of the military – from Texas to Maryland – on nearly 6,000 acres 25 miles south of Richmond. The post’s daily population, including families, is expected to double to 40,000. Already soldiers are streaming into Fort Lee, where they learn to feed and move the military, and properly bury those who have died in their nation’s service. The military’s mortuary service is based at Fort Lee. The fort also will become the home of the Army Ordnance School, which is shifting from its nearly century-old home at the Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland. The campus will ultimately train about 26,000 students a year. Economic development officials have estimated the expansion will pump approximately $1 billion to $2 billion a year into the local economy. In August, however, when the military announced plans for a 15-story hotel on the base, some of the air went out of the local boosterism.



CHARLOTTE – Charlotte Mayor Anthony Foxx’s wife, Samara, has resigned from a high-paying DSS job that was one of three sparking concerns about nepotism last year. Reached at her home Sunday morning, Foxx said she resigned from the Mecklenburg Department of Social Services effective Dec. 31 to “focus more time and energy” on her family. The couple have a 5-year-old daughter and 3year-old son. Her husband was a councilman and mayoral candidate when she was hired for the job – with an annual salary of $100,000 – which was posted for just a day. The agency hired two other relatives of highranking government officials early last year: the daughter of CharlotteMecklenburg Police Chief Rodney Monroe and the daughter of Resident Superior Court Judge

Officials said the three hires were made in accordance with county policy and without regard to family ties. Commissioners examined resumes from the three during a lengthy closed session and concluded the hirings were proper. But County Manager Harry Jones soon changed the minimum time that most available jobs would be posted to six days.

A handful of officials in Wake County are testing the program now. Designers hope to start a countywide program in June and plan to evaluate the system before rolling it out across North Carolina. The estimated cost over three years is $27 million, but the program has funding only for the $9.1 million that will carry it through June 30.

RALEIGH (AP) – Wake County is trying out a program that would give law enforcement and prosecutors quick access to databases of criminal and prison records from across North Carolina. The system is being created in response to the 2008 killing of Eve Carson, student body president at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. One of the men charged in her death committed nine different crimes during six weeks on probation but never once met with his probation officer, authorities said.

Now comes the after-Christmas paying of bills China and other foreign nations must be going ho, ho, ho, while many Americans are asking why, why, why did I buy all that stuff made in other countries that we did not need? Many Americans are saying my pockets are empty, my bank account has dried up, while my house is so full of toys I cannot walk without bumping into them all because I wanted to see my children smiling on Christmas morning and having a ball that day. Now I am almost in tears because all that stuff is not back where it came from and out of my way! Some Americans are saying my closets were full before Christmas, now they are running over because I just had to have new clothes for Christmas. Now, I do not have any money to go out to wear them because I spent all my money before Christmas. There was so much advertising about all that stuff I really did not need, but I forgot I had to live after Christmas. Now January is here, and I don’t know how I will pay the bills because the money I had is in some other person’s bank account. A house full of toys and a closet full of clothes will not pay the bills, so do the best you can to get things straightened out this year. Just remember at Christmastime 2010, that bills will come in 2011 and don’t blow all you have in November and December. Then when 2011 comes in, you will be saying ho, ho, ho, because you didn’t spend all your money at Christmastime. REV. PAUL E. HONEYCUTT Salemburg

Drug treatment participants need volunteer opportunities I and others are in a program called Treatment Court (Drug Court). There are Treatment Courts in High Point, Greensboro, Asheboro and other counties. I am a participant in the Asheboro Treatment Court. This is a program that helps people that have been charged with crimes related to drug abuse and dependence. We are now drug free. We attend groups four days a week and also go to court every two weeks to monitor our progress. Part of our treatment plan may require



us to go to a 28-day inpatient facility such as Path of Hope in Lexington. There they learn more about their addiction and how to maintain a drug free lifestyle with the help of some very good counselors. One participant just came back and brought a poem back that has touched many of us in the program. This poem shows that there is hope for people suffering from addiction. The program also recommends that we do volunteer work. There are a lot of participants having trouble finding people and places who will allow us to volunteer due to our past. We just need a chance to show the community how this program has helped us to become different people. We have recently helped out with Special Olympics and the Kiwanis food drive. If anyone would like to give us a chance to serve the community through volunteer work please call 336328-3180 and ask for our program director Mike Scearce. DONNA GRUBB Trinity

Meeting community’s needs gets more challenging

We live in difficult times that will not end soon. Money is tight. People are struggling. The human service needs of the entire Piedmont Triad have grown. United Way partner agencies are experiencing needs greater than they have ever seen. In response to these needs, something positive and unprecedented took place on Dec. 16. Our area’s three original television stations – WFMY News 2, WGHP FOX 8 and WXII 12 – joined together to tell the story of the Piedmont’s needy. From 5 a.m. to 9 a.m., all three stations provided programming that showed Piedmont communities the tremendous needs their fellow residents are experiencing, and how they can help through their local United Way.

Health care backers show unhealthy arrogance T

he only thing healthy about Congress’ health insurance legislation is the healthy skepticism about it by most of the public, as revealed by polls. What is most unhealthy about this legislation is the raw arrogance in the way it was conceived and passed. Supporters of government health insurance call its passage “historic.” Past attempts to pass such legislation – going back for decades – failed repeatedly. But now both houses of Congress have passed government health care legislation and it is just a question of reconciling their respective bills and presenting President Obama with a political “victory.” In short, this is not about improving the health of the American people. It is about passing something – anything – to keep the Obama administration from ending up with egg on its face by being unable to pass a bill, after so much hype and hoopla. Politically, looking impotent is a formula for disaster at election time. Far better to pass even bad legislation that will not actually go into effect until after the 2012 presidential election, so that the public will not know whether it makes medical care better or worse until it is too late for the voters to hold the administration accountable.

The utter cynicism of this has been apparent from the outset, in the rush to pass a health care bill in a hurry, in order to meet wholly arbiOPINION trary, self-imposed deadlines. First it Thomas was supposed to be Sowell passed before the ■■■ August 2009 Congressional recess. Then it was supposed to be passed before Labor Day. When that didn’t happen, it was supposed to be rushed to passage before Christmas. Why – especially since the legislation would not take effect until years from now? The only rational explanation for such haste to pass a bill that will be slow to go into effect is to prevent the public from knowing what is in this massive legislation that even members of Congress are unlikely to have read. That is also the only reason that makes sense for postponing the time when Obamacare goes into action after the next presidential election. What does calling this medical

care legislation “historic” mean? It means that previous administrations gave up the idea when it became clear that the voting public did not want government control of medical care. What is “historic” is that this will be the first administration to show that it doesn’t care one bit what the public wants or doesn’t want. In short, this is not about the public’s health. It is about Obama’s ego and his chance to impose his will and leave a legacy. This is not the only massive legislation to be rushed to passage in Congress and then left to go into effect slowly. The same political formula was used earlier, to pass the “stimulus” bill to spend hundreds of billions of dollars that the government doesn’t have – and that may well amount to more than a trillion dollars when the interest on the debt it creates is added, for this and the next generation to pay off. Legislation is not the only sign of this administration’s contempt for the intelligence of the public and for the safeguards of democratic government. The appointment of White House “czars” to make policy

Leonard Pitts’ column will return Thursday. YOUR COMMUNITY. YOUR NEWSPAPER.

across a wide spectrum of issues – unknown people who get around the Constitution’s requirement of Senate confirmation for Cabinet members – is yet another sign of the mind-set that sees the fundamental laws and values of this country as just something to get around, in order to impose the will of an arrogant elite. That some of these “czars” have already revealed their own contempt for the values of American society in the things they have said and done only reinforces the point. In a sense, this administration is only the end result of a long social process that includes raising successive generations with dumbed-down education in schools and colleges that have become indoctrination centers for the visions of the left. Our education system has turned out many people who have never heard any other vision and who can only learn what is wrong with the prevailing vision from bitter experience. That bitter experience now awaits them, at home and abroad. THOMAS SOWELL, a native of North Carolina, is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

US, UK close Yemen embassies over al-Qaida threats



UK knew airline suspect had extremist ties LONDON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; British intelligence officials knew that the Nigerian man suspected of trying to bomb a Detroit-bound airliner had ties to U.K. extremists but did not consider him enough of a high risk to alert American authorities, a senior British official said Sunday. Officials realized about a year after Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab came to London to study in 2005 that he was in contact with Islamic extremists.

DUSHANBE, Tajikistan â&#x20AC;&#x201C; About 20,000 people were left homeless in the impoverished Central Asian nation of Tajikistan after an earthquake leveled their homes in a mountainous region, officials said Sunday. No deaths were reported after the magnitude 5.3 quake struck the Pamir Mountains on Saturday, the Emergency Situations and Civil Defense Committee said. Hundreds of mud-brick houses in several villages in the Gorno-Badakhshansky region were damaged.

Swiss police: 4 dead in avalanches BERN, Switzerland â&#x20AC;&#x201C; At least four people were killed in two separate avalanche incidents Sunday in the Swiss Alps, police said. A group of skiers was hit by an avalanche shortly before midday in the Diemtig Valley about 25 miles south of the capital Bern, police in Bern canton said. Rescuers who came to their aid were then hit by a second avalanche at the same spot, police said.

Roadside bombs kill 6 in Pakistan PARACHINAR, Pakistan (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Roadside bombs struck two vehicles in Pakistanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s volatile northwest Sunday, killing a former irrigation minister and three others in one attack and two anti-Taliban tribal elders in the other. Public officials and private citizens combatting the growing Taliban-led

insurgency in Pakistan have been frequent targets in a wave of violence that has killed more than 600 people in the past two-and-a-half months. A single attack two days ago killed nearly 100 people when a suicide car bomber struck a sports event near a meeting of tribesmen who supervise an anti-Taliban

in the northwest. The Pakistani government has pledged it will persevere despite the violence but has resisted U.S. calls to expand its offensive to target militants launching crossborder attacks against coalition troops in Afghanistan. The U.S. has responded by increasing drone missile strikes.

Iranian journalist gets prison term, desert exile TEHRAN, Iran (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; An Iranian journalist lost an appeal Sunday against his conviction on charges of spreading propaganda against the ruling Islamic establishment and was sentenced to six years in prison and five years of internal exile in a remote desert town. The court also confirmed a lifelong ban on political activity for the

prominent reporter, Ahmad Zeidabadi, who was also once a student activist. Zeidabadi was among more than 100 political figures and activists tried together in the aftermath of Iranâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disputed presidential election, which the opposition says was rigged to give Mahmoud Ahmadinejad another term in office. The mass trial and a

crackdown on street demonstrations has failed to silence the opposition movement, which has also confronted Iranâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clerical leaders and demanded greater social and political freedoms. Iranâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interior minister said on Sunday that

Tajikistan earthquake leaves 20,000 homeless

SANâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;A, Yemen (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The U.S. and Britain locked up their embassies in Yemen on Sunday after fresh threats from al-Qaida, and the White House expressed alarm at the terror groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expanded reach in the poor Arab nation where an offshoot apparently ordered the Christmas Day plot against a U.S. airliner. President Barack Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top counterterrorism adviser, John Brennan, cited â&#x20AC;&#x153;indications al-Qaida is planning to carry out an attack against a targetâ&#x20AC;? in the capital, possibly the embassy, and estimated the group had several hundred members in Yemen. Security reasons led Britain to act, too; it was not known when the embassies would reopen. The U.S. is worried about the spread of terrorism in Yemen, a U.S. ally and aid recipient, Brennan said, but doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t consider the country a second front with Afghanistan and Pakistan in the fight against terrorism. Britain and the United States are assisting a counterterrorism police unit in Yemen as fears grow about the increasing threat.

Obama adviser: No smoking gun in airline bomb plot WASHINGTON (AP) – U.S. intelligence agencies did not miss a “smoking gun” that could have prevented an alleged attempt to blow up a U.S. airliner on Christmas Day, President Barack Obama’s top counterterrorism adviser said Sunday. White House aide John Brennan cited “lapses” and errors in the sharing of intelligence and clues about Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the Nige-

rian man accused in the foiled attempt. “There is no smoking gun,” Brennan said. “There was no single piece of intelligence that said, ‘this guy is going to get on a plane.’ ” Brennan is leading a White House review of the incident. Obama has said there was a systemic failure to prevent the attack, which he said was instigated by an affiliate in Yemen of the al-Qaida terrorist network.

The Rev. Billy Parham sits on one of the bunks in the sleeping and worship area of The Shepherd’s Inn. Established in 2007, The Shepherd’s Inn still is the only homeless shelter in Thomasville.

Feeding body and soul Thomasville homeless shelter continues to help people find their way BY DARRICK IGNASIAK ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

THOMASVILLE – Two years after opening its doors for the first time, The Shepherd’s Inn, a Thomasville church that runs the Chair city’s only homeless shelter, continues to turn around lives by offering the homeless a warm place to stay. “There have been so many to come through here who have used this place to find a job, save their money and live here. Then boom – they’re back out. They are working, and everything is just going really well,” said the Rev. Billy Parham, pastor of The Shepherd’s Inn and a founder of the homeless shelter. “That’s what we are trying to do. We are

trying to help people get back on their feet. “We are a church first, but I can’t let people sleep outside like animals.” The Shepherd’s Inn, located at 310 Hinkle St., was used as a shelter for the first time on Christmas Day in December 2007. Since then, the shelter has served hundreds, according to Parham. “We are the only outreach mission or shelter here in Thomasville,” Parham said. “We met a lot of opposition in opening the shelter, but the problem was folks weren’t aware of how major of a problem it was. I could ride through Randolph Street and go under the bridge at (Interstate) 85 and see people who were sleeping under that bridge.” In February 2008, The Shepherd’s Inn was told by city inspectors that it needed to make several renovations to the shelter. Among the items to be placed in the shelter were a handicap

accessible lavatory and a commode and shower, which would allow the shelter to have an occupancy of 16 people to stay over night. All of the renovations have been completed and the shelter is up to code, Parham said. Last week, the Hinkle Street shelter, which is occupied by men only, had 14 temporarily living at the facility. The church also operates a women’s shelter in a separate location in Thomasville. Those who stay at the shelter are fed each night and have church services five times a week, Parham said, adding that the shelter is an “outreach mission” of The Shepherd’s Inn. “It’s part of our church,” he said. “We only feed people who are hungry and house people who don’t have a place to go, but they get fed spiritually here as well.” | 888-3657


THOMASVILLE – Operating Thomasville’s only homeless shelter has come at a price for one church in the Chair City. To help offset those costs, The Shepherd’s Inn, which operates the shelter, opened a Thrift Store at 103 Salem St. several months ago. All of the funds generated from the store are used for the shelter. “Folks are donating furniture and clothing and that sort of thing,” said the Rev. Billy Parham, pastor of The Shepherd’s Inn. “We just resell that back to the public. We haven’t made any money off it until the last couple of months.

‘We haven’t made any money off it until the last couple of months. It’s just started where we could make a little bit.’ Billy Parham Pastor, The Shepherd’s Inn It’s just started where we could make a little bit. We just bought six brand new bunk beds for our lady’s shelter, where we could house 12 people there. That’s

from the funds from the thrift store.” Parham and Ernest Parker, associate director of The Shepherd’s Inn, both said The Shepherd’s Inn needs support from the community with the thrift store because of the cost of running the shelter in the winter. “We are having to pay the light bill. We are having to pay our rent on the building, the water bill, buying groceries and bus tickets,” Parham said. “You’d be surprised by the amount of groceries that go out of here to people within the community who need help. That’s what we are about. We are about helping the community.” The shelter has more occupants in the win-

ter because “the real hard-core guys” who would “rather stay in the woods” come to the shelter when it gets cold, said Parker, who sought assistance from the shelter himself two years ago before helping manage the facility. Parham noted the shelter has received support from William and Debbie Hinkle, The Church of Tomorrow, First Presbyterian Church and Thomasville Medical Center. The hours of the thrift store are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday. For more information or to contribute an item to the thrift store, contact Parham at 491-6876. | 888-3657


GUILFORD COUNTY – With a judge’s ruling last week in federal court, Guilford County Commissioner Steve Arnold’s bankruptcy case could be near an end. Arnold, a former land developer who has been fighting business problems since 2004, said the ruling on a debt claim filed by Manuel Perkins, a retired private water utility owner, and Christine Perkins could be the last in the case. “It is probably up to them (the Perkinses) now for the next step,” Arnold said. “This has been going on for five years, and there is nothing new. It is regrettable, but it has been going on for a long time.” Jimmy Summerlin Jr., attorney for the Perkinses, could not be reached for comment. Case documents filed in 2007 show that Arnold had little income outside his commissioner’s job. His principal company, Arcon Inc. of High Point, is in bankruptcy and has not paid Arnold directly since 2005. Arnold’s business problems have included a slander and libel suit from Elkes Development, a former business associate Arnold battled in court over an Archdale subdivision. Under a court order, Arnold agreed to pay Elkes $6,250 in 2007 and turn over documents related to the deal. U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Thomas W. Waldrep Jr. criticized Arnold for transferring property to family members as the only creditors who sued him sought debt payments. Arnold said under oath he released the property to keep a particular creditor from “coming after it,” according to court records. Arnold later acknowledged that his comment was made with “a bit of sarcasm and irony,” but Waldrep said he did not find the explanation credible. “I have never said anything dumber,” Arnold is reported to have said, according to a footnote in the judge’s opinion. “The court is inclined to agree with this statement.” First elected to the Guilford County Board of Commissioners in 1990, Arnold is the board’s senior Republican and vice chairman. He ran unopposed in 2006 for his District 2 seat and faces re-election in 2010.

NORWICH, Vt. (AP) – Freya von Moltke, a prominent member of the anti-Nazi resistance in World War II, has died at the age of 98, her son said. Von Moltke, who was born in Germany but had lived in Vermont since 1960, died Friday after suffering a recent viral infection, her son Helmuth von Moltke told the Lebanon Valley News newspaper. In her writings after the war, von Moltke described her life in the resistance with her husband, Helmuth James Graf von Moltke, who co-founded the anti-Nazi Kreisau Circle and was executed for his activities. She was born into a banking family in 1911 in Cologne as Freya Deichmann and met her future husband when she was 18. They were married in 1931. The couple settled on his Silesian estate, Kreisau, located in present-day Poland. In 1932, they moved to Berlin, where he set up an international law practice. He was an opponent of Adolf Hitler’s regime from its start, and he helped Jews and other victims of Nazism in his early law practice. The von Moltkes formed the center of a resistance group that became known as the Kreisau Circle, which included clergy members, economic experts and diplomats. In 1943, the group established contact with Col. Claus von Stauffenberg, the leader of the German military resistance, and supported his failed attempt on July 20, 1944, to assassinate Hitler with a bomb. The story of that plot was portrayed in the 2008 film “Valkyrie.”

Zamora said one passenger suffered a broken back and two other passengers were taken to a hospital in Craven County for treatment. Zamora said the initial investigation showed it was a single-vehicle accident but that another vehicle was at the scene when the accident occurred. The State Highway Patrol’s investigation into the accident is ongoing. Zamora said he had identified those in the second vehicle and plans to call them for further information about what they observed. No charges have been filed yet.

Woman uses big heart to help big dogs of what you can take care of,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This (past) year, with the economy, I think people are just dumping their dogs, canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feed them and take care of them. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been doing this for 18 years and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never seen anything like it. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just Pyrs (pronounced: peers), itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s every breed.â&#x20AC;? In the midst of a terrible time to be a stray dog, Ozzie the Great Pyrenees limped into the right place. He was born Feb. 27, 2008, near the North Carolina coast. The breeder, who couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sell the puppies, abandoned Ozzie, along with his two brothers. For five months, the brothers wandered the countryside. Area animal control

tried in vain to catch them. Finally, they walked into a kennel that a sympathetic neighbor had left open with food inside. She closed the door behind them and called Rehmeyer, who brought them home. The dogs were dirty and emaciated. None of them had ever worn a collar. They didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really trust people, as do most Great Pyrenees, a social, gentle breed. Rehmeyer and other volunteers worked for months to teach the brothers how to be pets, to do things like walk on a leash and relieve themselves outside. Once that was accomplished, Ozzieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brothers, Big Um and Titan, quickly found what volunteers

call their forever homes. But people noticed Ozzie walked funny, like a duck. His back paws splayed out at a 90-degree angle. X-rays showed that the knee ligaments in Ozzieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back legs werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t properly developed from birth. On Dec. 16, 2008, Ozzie had surgery on his right leg, to insert a pin and build support to hold his

You just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know when these types of tragedies will occur, so you should be prepared. What about taking a basic first aid class? I know most people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to think about their child being seriously hurt, but ignoring the possibility does not prevent it from happening. Learning such basics as how to control bleeding and opening an airway could help save a life. We all know the New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resolutions that always seem to be at the top of the list every year and most of them are very worthy indeed. I just ask that you think about adding fire safety and basic first aid to that list for the sake of those you love. 24/7/365: you call, we respond.

anuary is always a time for new beginnings, which leads many of us to once again start thinking about New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resolutions. Excersing and losing weight always seem to be at the top of the list and are very important, but I would like you to add a few New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resolutions to your list that you likely have never thought of. Help your kids learn their address and phone number and teach them how to call for help by dialing 911. They may be the only one available who can call for help if you are sick or unable to reach the phone. Teach your kids how to escape if your house catches on fire. Do they know what to do if the door that leads to safety is blocked? Do they know to shut their door if they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t escape because of heat and smoke? It could buy them extra minutes so they can climb out a window or yell for someone to rescue them. Have you taught your kids how to open the windows in their room? Do you have an escape ladder if they sleep on the upper floor of your house? Where will you meet if you get separated? Have you as a parent ever thought about taking a CPR class? In these classes they teach CPR and also how

The immune system makes antibodies that attack and destroy platelets, also called thrombocytes. Platelets are the body’s clot-forming cells. A drop in platelets causes bruising (purpura) and can lead to serious bleeding. A normal platelet count is 165,000 to 415,000 per cubic mm of blood. Counts of 50,000 and above don’t usually call for treatment. Treatment is considered when the count drops below 20,000 or when a person is actively bleeding. Prednisone, one of the cortisone drugs (steroids), or intravenous gamma globulin is given when the count drops to dangerous levels. DR.

Byron and Jo Godfrey started a local chapter of PFLAG (Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays) nearly two years ago.

Supporters of gays, lesbians seek greater awareness BY JIMMY TOMLIN ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER


IGH POINT – In the nearly two years since Jo and Byron Godfrey began a support group for family and friends of gay people, they have learned a lot. More than anything, though, they’ve learned that their hunch was correct – the need for such a support group in High Point definitely exists. “We had an article in the newspaper and received some positive feedback,” Jo Godfrey recalls. “We knew then that this was something that was needed in our area. We meet once a month, and we have about a dozen members in the group.” The support group is affiliated with Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays – better known as PFLAG

’We just want to let people know there’s help in the community.’ Jo Godfrey Member of PFLAG – and is one of about 17 PFLAG chapters across North Carolina and more than 500 nationwide. PFLAG’s mission is to promote the health and well-being of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender persons through support, education and advocacy. “We just want to let people know there’s help in the community,” Jo says. The Godfreys learned in the 1990s that their son, Brooks, is gay. He was



The High Point chapter of PFLAG (Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays) meets the first Tuesday of each month, at 7 p.m., at the Roy B. Culler Jr. Senior Center, 600 N. Hamilton St. There will be no January meeting, so the next meeting will be Feb. 2. For more information, contact Jo Godfrey at 889-4549, 870-2806 or already grown when he revealed his secret to his parents. The couple went through a period of denial, Jo says, but it didn’t last long. Then they began the process of trying to understand, accept and embrace their son’s lifestyle as best they could. “Brooks has helped us so much on this journey that it was not the big shock thing that it is for a lot of parents,” Jo says, explaining that her son is now an ordained minister on staff at a gay-affirming church in Raleigh. “We have walked this journey together.” She adds, “We really didn’t know anything about PFLAG at the time, but it would’ve been helpful to us.” That’s why, in early 2008, the Godfreys decided to organize the local PFLAG chapter, to help other individuals who find themselves on the same journey the Godfreys have been on. The group initially met once a month at the Godfreys’ home, then began meeting at a church – until some church

members became uncomfortable with that arrangement – and now meetings are held at the Roy B. Culler Jr. Senior Center. Meetings typically last about an hour and a half, and feature a guest speaker followed by sharing time. “It’s not a marathon meeting,” Jo says. “We like to have a guest speaker on legal issues, human rights issues, businesses that are open and have no gender restrictions, and things like the anti-bullying rule. Then we have a sharing time, where people can ask questions and tell their stories. And all of this is confidential – whatever’s spoken in the meeting is not carried outside.” According to the Godfreys, the group consists primarily of parents of gays and lesbians, but also includes one transgender parent. Almost all of the group members live in High Point. “Even if you don’t have a family member, the group is also for friends of gays,” Jo says. “And some people say, ‘Are gays and lesbians welcome in the group?’ Well, yeah, how else are we going to learn? There are just a variety of stories out there, because each situation is different.” The group has struggled with community awareness, but the Godfreys hope their continued efforts will pay off. “There are still people who say, ‘What is PFLAG? We don’t know anything about it,’” Jo says. “But PFLAG has been in existence for a lot of years, and it has a national Web site ( We would love to see our group grow, because we think there are people out there who need us, and we need them, too.”


Carbon monoxide is a silent killer. It’s odorless, colorless and tasteless, and according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 400 people in the United States die from carbon monoxide poisoning each year. Because of the dangers of this toxic gas, a new state law began Friday that requires carbon monoxide detectors to be installed in all existing rental units with fossil fuel appliances or fossil fuel fired heating systems. Specifically, the law requires that: • Owners of existing rental units shall provide at least one carbon monoxide detector on each level of each unit. • The detectors can be electrically hard-wired or battery-operated. • All detectors must be approved by a nationally recognized testing laboratory. Also, beginning Jan. 1, 2011, all new homes being constructed must have a carbon monoxide detector installed outside of each separate sleeping area in the immediate vicinity of the bedroom(s).







In a final match that recalled other finals, both recent and long past, the United States beat Italy 285249 to win the 2009 Bermuda Bowl in Sao Paulo, Brazil. China overwhelmed a U.S. team in the women’s Venice Cup final; England took the Seniors event. Many pairs relied on a hyperactive bidding style, but that style caused a loss in a Bermuda Bowl quarterfinal match, U.S. vs. the Netherlands. When the Dutch sat East-West, East opened with an obstructive bid of two hearts, but the U.S. North-South, Eric Rodwell-Jeff Meckstroth, got to four spades.

MAKES GAME West led a diamond, and Meckstroth won and proceeded to guess the trumps, guided by the bidding. He lost two hearts and a club. At the other table, the U.S. East kept silent, and the Dutch North-South reached four spades with no opposing bidding to guide declarer. He misguessed in trumps and lost four tricks: down one. Could it be, I wonder, that it is wiser to bid with good hands and pass with weak ones?

DAILY QUESTION You hold: S A 8 5 3 2 H K 6 D A Q 8 5 C 10 9. You open one spade, your partner bids two hearts, you rebid two spades and he tries three clubs. What do you say? ANSWER: Since the hand has two diamond stoppers, to bid 3NT is attractive, and many players would do so. An option is to bid three hearts. Partner won’t be misled; he will expect only a doubleton honor in support. The weak spades and possible ruffing value argue for a heart contract. East dealer N-S vulnerable

Three stars: If you focus, you will reach your goals. Four stars: You can pretty much do as you please, a good time to start new projects. Five stars: Nothing can stop you now. Go for the gold.

‘Avatar’ rules with $68.3M, tops $1B worldwide AT THE BOX OFFICE LOS ANGELES (AP) – James Cameron’s sciencefiction epic “Avatar” had another stellar weekend with $68.3 million domestically, shooting past $1 billion worldwide, only the fifth movie ever to hit that mark. No. 1 for the thirdstraight weekend, 20th Century Fox’s “Avatar” raised its domestic total to $352.1 million after just 17 days. The film added $133 million overseas to lift its

international haul to $670 million, for a worldwide gross of $1.02 billion. “Avatar” opened two weekends earlier with $77 million, a strong start but far below dozens of other blockbusters that debuted as high as $158 million. But business for other blockbusters usually tumbles in following weekends, while “Avatar” revenues barely dropped over the busy Christmas and New Year’s weekends.

Blue Devils open ACC play with victory over Clemson. 4D WINSTON-SALEM (AP) – Ishmael Smith scored a career-high 28 points and Al-Farouq Aminu had 26 points and 17 rebounds as Wake Forest pulled out a 96-92 double-overtime victory against Xavier on Sunday. C.J. Harris added 13 points and L.D. Williams 10 for the Demon Deacons (11-2), who rallied from a five-point deficit late in the first half and a fourpoint deficit late in the second to win their seventh straight. It also was Wake Forest’s second overtime win in the past four days, both coming against Atlantic 10 teams. On Thursday, the Demon Deacons beat Richmond 74-68. Jordan Crawford scored a career-high 30 points, Jamel McLean added 21 and Terrell Holloway 13 for the Musketeers (8-5), who saw their two-game winning streak snapped. It was the first game in the Skip Prosser Classic, a 10-year series between the schools. It’s named for Prosser, who was the coach at Xavier from 1994-2001 and at Wake Forest from 2001 until his death in 2007. Down by two points at the half, the Demon Deacons rallied to lead 60-52 on Smith’s free throw with 12:29 left.


Carolina wide receiver Dwayne Jarrett (80) catches a pass as New Orleans’ Randall Gay defends in the second half of Sunday’s game in Charlotte. The Panthers grabbed a 23-10 victory to close the season with an 8-8 record.

No contest

Panthers pummel resting Saints in season finale CHARLOTTE (AP) – Drew Brees’ performance as team captain at the midfield coin toss was the closest he came to playing and seemingly the last time New Orleans had a chance to win its regular-season finale. So much for momentum going into the playoffs. The Saints decided to play it safe, and it means a threegame losing streak for the No. 1 seed in the NFC. Jonathan Stewart rushed for 125 yards and a touchdown and the Carolina Panthers finished their disappointing season with a 23-10 win over the lifeless Saints on Sunday. While the Carolina locker room was filled with speculation on whether coach John Fox will be back, if defensive end Julius Peppers will return and who the quarterback will be next season, the Saints were trying to convince folks they can turn it around in two weeks in the divisional round. “Would I have loved it if we came out here and scored 41? I mean, yeah,” Brees said. “But is it worth the risk?” Coach Sean Payton didn’t think so. Hours after commissioner Roger

Goodell said the NFL will consider offering incentives, such has draft picks, for teams to play their starters when the games are meaningless for playoff positioning, Payton wasn’t interested. “The idea of getting a draft pick and having your quarterback not healthy for a divisional playoff game doesn’t sound real appealing to me,” he said. So 39-year-old Mark Brunell started for Brees. Jeremy Shockey never got on the field, Reggie Bush got only five carries and by the second half nearly every defensive starter was watching. The backups proved no match for the Panthers, and the Saints (13-3) looked nothing like the team that less than a month ago was flirting with a perfect season. Sitting out allowed Brees to break the NFL record for completion percentage in a season with 70.60, besting the previous NFL record of 70.55 by Ken Anderson of Cincinnati in 1982. It also allowed the Panthers (8-8) to finish on a three-game winning streak. Matt Moore threw for 162 yards and a touchdown to Dwayne

Jarrett to finish 4-1 as a starter after the struggling Delhomme was sidelined with a broken finger. Peppers intercepted Brunell late in the game ahead of perhaps another tumultuous offseason of free agency. And Fox faces a decision on whether he may try to leave for another job with the Panthers yet to extend his contract past next season. “I usually talk to my family and see where that all goes.” Fox said when asked if he wanted to return. Asked if he’d be willing to potentially be a lame-duck coach in 2010, Fox was noncommittal. If it was the coach’s last game in Carolina, Stewart made it enjoyable with a 67-yard touchdown run on the second play from scrimmage. He surpassed Pro Bowl pick DeAngelo Williams for the team rushing lead as they became the first teammates since the AFL-NFL merger to each rush for over 1,100 yards. Williams (1,117 yards) sat out his second straight game with a sprained ankle, while Stewart (1,133 yards) left in the third quarter.




ppropriately, the inaugural Professional Football Writers of America Tom Berry Good Guy Award stayed close to home. Carolina fullback Brad Hoover was presented with the award on Sunday. What a good way to honor the memory of one of the best men I’ve ever known. Cancer took Tom, a longtime sports writer and sports columnist for The High Point Enterprise, from us in September. He’s missed every day by so many of his family members and friends.

That includes his fellow Carolina Panthers beat writers, who created this award in his memory. Hoover is the perfect choice for the first Tom Berry Good Guy Award. Tom covered Hoover as a prep star at Ledford High School, a record-setting college performer at Western Carolina and throughout his 10-season stint with the Panthers. Hoover’s philanthropic activities are many and praiseworthy. He hosts a charity golf tournament each year – an event Tom always enjoyed covering – and is ac-

tive in a variety of other worthy causes. Brad Hoover is a good guy and a credit to our community. It touches my heart to see these two men linked in such a special way. Thanks to the PFWA and all of the folks who made this possible and to Hoover for being such a deserving winner. And thanks to Tom Berry for being such a tremendous force for good in so many lives. We won’t forget you, Tom.



A day after acknowledging “bad judgment” for bringing guns to the locker room, embattled guard Gilbert Arenas was not talking after practice. The Washington Wizards star is to meet with law enforcement today. Arenas is being investigated by federal and local authorities. On Saturday, Arenas also denied that he gambles and said there are misconceptions about a dispute between him and teammate Javaris Crittenton. The New York Post has reported that Arenas and Crittenton drew guns on each other. When asked about that Saturday, Arenas said: “I can’t speak on that, but I’m not a violent man.”

Dallas-Philly set for playoff rematch THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


Tennessee’s Chris Johnson (28) looks for running room as Seattle’s Jordan Babineaux closes in during Sunday’s game. Johnson, who starred at East Carolina University, finished the season with 2,006 rushing yards and 14 touchdowns on 358 carries. He joins O.J. Simpson, Eric Dickerson, Barry Sanders, Terrell Davis and Jamal Lewis as the only backs in NFL history to rush for 2,000 or more yards in a season.

winning streak. Stephen Jackson led Charlotte with 22 points. Gerald Wallace added 19. LeBron James, who missed a potential tying 3-pointer from the left corner as time expired, scored 29 points for the Cavs and Mo Williams added 27.

PACKERS 33, CARDINALS 7 GLENDALE, Ariz. – The Arizona Cardinals and Green Bay Packers knew well before kickoff that they would be playing each other again on the same field in a few days. Aaron Rodgers, playing mostly against the Arizona reserves, shredded the Cardinals in three quarters, completing 21 of 26 passes for 235 yards and a touchdown.

49ERS 28, RAMS 6 ST. LOUIS – Vernon Davis tied the NFL record for touchdown receptions for a tight end with his 13th of the season, helping the 49ers finish strong and the lowly Rams clinch the No. 1 overall draft pick.

BEARS 37, LIONS 23 DETROIT – Jay Cutler matched a career high for a second straight week with four touchdown passes. The Bears (7-9) won their final two games.

Dallas won a division title, Baltimore earned a wild-card spot, the Super Bowl champs headed home, and the NFL’s last playoff spot went down to the final game. Next week’s first round will include at least two rematches of games Sunday, and possibly three. The playoffs won’t include the defending champion Pittsburgh Steelers. While Tony Romo and the Cowboys romped over Philadelphia 24-0 to help set the NFC matchups, the AFC pairings still were unsettled. The Ravens (9-7) grabbed one AFC wildcard spot when they beat Oakland 21-13, leaving only Houston and the New York Jets in contention for the other berth. That left it all up to Sunday night’s game between Cincinnati and the Jets at the frigid Meadowlands. New York gets a wild-card berth with a victory, the Texans get it with a Cincinnati win. A Jets victory guarantees they play at Cincinnati in the first round. This much was certain: no cold-weather games in the second round. Hosts Minnesota, New Orleans and Indianapolis play inside domes, and San Diego is the other site. For the second straight year, the Eagles-Cowboys showdown was a rout. This time, Dallas did the damage. The Cowboys won the NFC East by defeating Philadelphia 24-0. The teams will meet again next weekend at Cowboys Stadium in the wild-card round. Dallas swept Philadelphia this season to earn the division crown, dropping the Eagles to the sixth seed, both at 11-5. A year ago, the Eagles kept the Cowboys out of the postseason with a 446 victory in the season

finale. That gave Philly a wild-card spot and the Eagles rode it to the NFC title game, where they led late before Arizona rallied to advance to the Super Bowl. Kurt Warner and the Cardinals will host the Packers next weekend after Green Bay (11-5) beat them 33-7 Sunday. Arizona (10-6), the NFC’s third seed a year ago, will be No. 4 this time. Baltimore, which began the season 3-0 – as did the Jets – will be at either New England or Cincinnati in the wildcard round. Minnesota’s 44-7 blitz of the New York Giants gave Brett Favre and the Vikings (12-4) a firstround bye. New Orleans (13-3) is the NFC’s No. 1 seed, but lost its final three games. “I think it’s proof of what we’re capable of doing,” said Favre, who completed 25 of 31 passes for 316 yards and four touchdowns in less than three quarters without a turnover. “Where it takes us from here, I have no idea. But it was definitely a momentum boost and confidence.” Indianapolis, which dropped its last two games, is the AFC’s top seed at 14-2. San Diego (13-3) also has a bye and won its final 11 games. Houston has never been to the playoffs and its 9-7 record this year makes for its first winning season. It beat AFC East winner New England 34-27 Sunday. The Bengals already own the AFC North and were resting some regulars, including running back Cedric Benson, for the night matchup with the Jets. Out of the playoffs are the Steelers, who finished 9-7 but lost out on tiebreakers. “I’d rather we go out with a win than a loss,” said Ben Roethlisberger, who threw three touchdown passes in a 30-24 win at Miami.

AP source: Redskins will fire Zorn today THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

The Washington Redskins plan to fire coach Jim Zorn today, an official within the NFL told The Associated Press. The Redskins planned to make the move on the day after the end of a disappointing regular season. Washington struggled early despite a weak schedule and finished 4-12 after losing 23-20 in Sunday’s finale against the San Diego Chargers. The official spoke to the AP on Sunday on condition of anonymity because no formal announcement has been made. Zorn’s dismissal has been expected for months. The front office stripped him of his play-calling duties in late October, and owner Dan Snyder has interviewed assistant coach Jerry Gray for the job, according to the Fritz Pollard Alliance, which monitors minority hiring in the NFL. Mike Shanahan is considered the favorite for the job.

Gators stun Pack with 75-footer RALEIGH (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Hardly anything would fall from long range for Florida â&#x20AC;&#x201C; until Chandler Parsons tossed up a prayer from well past halfcourt. His 75-footer swished through at the overtime buzzer, lifting the Gators past N.C. State 62-61 on Sunday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be lying if I felt that it looked good going in, or I felt that I had it,â&#x20AC;? Parsons said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was trying to make sure that I got it off in time.â&#x20AC;? Vernon Macklin scored 14 points, Erving Walker added 13 and Alex Tyus finished with 11 for coldshooting Florida (11-3). The Gators finished 3for-24 from 3-point range and appeared headed for a loss after Farnold Degandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s free throw with 2.6 seconds put N.C. State up 61-59. But after Degand missed his second free throw, Parsons grabbed the rebound, took two dribbles and uncorked a shot from roughly three-quarter court. It swished through,

sending the Gators spilling onto the court to mob him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nothing diagrammed, there was no play, there was nothing like that â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a guy just took the ball and, you know, you talk about strange things happening,â&#x20AC;? Florida coach Billy Donovan said. Said N.C. State point guard Javier Gonzalez: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Who knows how many times heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to make that in his career again? But he made it. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to live with it.â&#x20AC;? Tracy Smith scored 21 points while Gonzalez had eight of his 13 in overtime for the Wolfpack (10-4). They had their two-game winning streak snapped, made just 10 of 19 free throws and turned it over 14 times, many coming against Floridaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s effective full-court press. Before Parsonsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; heave, the Gators were 2-for-23 from beyond the arc. They missed their first 13 shots from long range, then missed one that would have won it in regulation.

Panthers look to take bite out of Bulldogs BY GREER SMITH ENTERPRISE SPORTS WRITER

HIGH POINT â&#x20AC;&#x201C; UNC Asheville doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t possess a sterling record this season. That doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter to High Point Univeristy menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coach Scott Cherry as the Panthers prepare to face the Bulldogs in a Big South Conference contest at the Millis Center tonight at 7. Asheville is 3-9 and lost 82-74 at Radford on Saturday to drop to 1-1 in the Big South. But, the Bulldogs opened league play with a 58-56 victory at Gardner-Webb, which gave HPU a scare on Saturday before the Panthers pulled away for a 78-68 triumph. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They went to Gardner-Webb and beat team,â&#x20AC;? Cherry said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are big. They are physical and they score around the basket, Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got kids who can score out on the perimeter. Any team in this league is going to be a challenge for us. Any team can come into your place and beat you, like they did at Gardner-Webb. So, it will be a tough game for us.â&#x20AC;? Asheville features a balanced attack with five players averaging between 10.6 and 7.8 points per game. Sean

Smith, a 6-6 senior guard from Sweden, is the top scorer, followed by 6-3 guard Chris Stephenson with 10.2 average. Cherry hopes a couple of trends continue to develop as the Panthers seek to go 6-0 at home. They won the battle of the boards for the second straight game when they finished with a 35-33 advantage against G-W. HPU also had fewer turnovers than G-W, the first time the Panthers held on to the basketball better than the opposition since the third game of the season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to get shots and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done a good job on the backboard,â&#x20AC;? Cherry said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We outrebounded the other team for the second game in a row. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re certainly going to try to keep that trend going. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to outrebound people. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to take of the ball, force turnovers, get in the open floor and make plays.â&#x20AC;? The menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game completes a doubleheader. The Panther women, seeking their seventh win in eight games, face Coastal Carolina at 4 p.m. Coastal lost its conference opener to UNC Asheville on Saturday but is 9-4 overall. HPUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s women stand 8-6, 1-0.

They also wanted James gone. Texas Tech fired Leach on Wednesday amid allegations that he mistreated James, son of ESPN analyst Craig James, after the sophomore wide receiver was diagnosed with a concussion. James declined comment after a night in which fans booed him.

BACK TO BUSINESS: See how Wall Street starts the new year. TOMORROW

Fed: Regulation 1st defense against speculation WASHINGTON (AP) – Stronger regulation is the best way to prevent financial speculation from getting out of hand and throwing the economy in a new crisis, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said Sunday. But he didn’t rule out higher interest rates to stop new speculative investment bubbles from forming. The Fed chief’s remarks were

his most extensive on the subject since the housing market’s tumble led to the gravest financial crisis since World War II – and perhaps the worst in modern history, in his view. Critics blame the Fed for feeding that speculative boom in housing by holding interest rates too low for too long after the 2001 recession. But Bernanke, in a speech to

the American Economic Association’s annual meeting in Atlanta, defended the central bank’s actions. Extra-low rates were needed to get the economy and job creation back to full throttle after the Sept. 11 attacks and accounting scandals that rocked Wall Street, he said. Bernanke said the direct links were weak between super-low interest rates and the rapid rise

in house prices that occurred at roughly the same time. The stance of interest rates during that period “does not appear to have been inappropriate,” he said. Still, the enormous economic damage from the housing bust – the longest and deepest recession since the 1930s and doubledigit unemployment – shows how important it is to guard against a repeat, Bernanke said.

“All efforts should be made to strengthen our regulatory system to prevent a recurrence of the crisis, and to cushion the effects if another crisis occurs,” he said. “However, if adequate reforms are not made, or if they are made but prove insufficient to prevent dangerous buildups of financial risks, we must remain open to using monetary policy as a supplementary tool,” he added.

Scheri, a real estate appraiser, had sized up a threebedroom, two-bath house in Santa Ana, Calif., for $30,000 less than what the buyers offered to pay. A typical dealkiller for a seller. The agent urged the lender to force Scheri to consider several other properties that could back up the original $310,000 sale price. Then he tried good old-fashioned guilt, telling Scheri her appraisal was going to ruin the buyers’ shot at the American Dream. “That’s what he laid on me,” Scheri recalled. “And I said, ‘Don’t you care they could be potentially spending $30,000 too much for a house?’ ” Across the country, agents and homebuilders are complaining too many appraisals are coming in low, scuttling deals. The National Association of Realtors says nearly one in four of its members has reported clients losing a sale due to botched appraisals. The National Association of Home Builders, meanwhile, said low appraisals were sinking a quarter of all new home sales and argues it’s not fair to compare distressed properties to brand-new homes. And that gets to the

heart of the problem. Roughly 40 percent of all home sales this year were foreclosures or short sales, meaning the property sold for less than the mortgage. In some markets, like Las Vegas and Phoenix, they’ve hit more than 50 percent. Appraisers determine the value of a property by looking at recent sales of comparable homes. They take an apples-to-apples approach, excluding or making adjustments for certain features, such as a swimming pool or finished basement. And generally, a foreclosure isn’t used as a comparison for a standard sale. But in some areas, appraisers like Scheri contend they are only sizing up homes according to the reality of the market, though they concede its becoming increasingly harder pinpoint what a home is worth. Home prices in many large metro areas, including Los Angeles and San Diego, hit bottom earlier this year and are recovering, data last week showed. Yet there are many neighborhoods across the country where foreclosures and other financially distressed sales still are rising. “It used to be a very infrequent thing that you did an appraisal and the value wasn’t supported,” says Scheri, who is based AP in San Diego. “Now, it’s Home appraiser Katherine Scheri runs water into a bathtub as she conducts an apmore common than not.” praisal at a hillside home in the unincorporated area of East Los Angeles.

TOKYO (AP) – The Tokyo Stock Exchange will launch a new highspeed trading system today, scrapping an antiquated, glitch-prone platform for one that aims to compete with major global rivals. The world’s secondlargest stock market after the New York Stock Exchange spent the weekend running final tests of its “Arrowhead” system, which can process trades in five milliseconds. That is 600 times faster than the two to three-seconds required until now, and roughly on par with its counterparts in New York and London. The TSE is banking on the system’s faster trading speeds and higher reliability to bolster its prospects ahead of plans to go public later this year. With the upgrade, the exchange hopes to lure traders who use automated computer programs to make rapid and frequent transactions. Algorithmic trading, commonly used by institutional investors like pension funds, accounts for the majority of equity trading in the U.S. and Europe but has been slow to catch on in Asia.

January effect may set tone for markets in 2010 CHARLOTTE (AP) – The stock market faces a big test as 2010 trading gets under way: whether its performance will be lifted by the phenomenon known as the January effect, or squelched by uncertainty about the economy. The January effect is the buying blip that often occurs with the start of a new tax year. Investors who sold stock before the end of the old year to claim a tax loss reinvest that money when trading begins again. Market historians and many investors are fascinated by the January effect because it often sets the tone for the rest of the year. In 2009, stocks were up at the start of January; although they were at 12-year lows two months later, they ended the year having had their best performance since 2003. “If the first five trading days of


January are up, the end of January will usually be up and the correlated end of the year is usually up,” says Ray Harrison, Principal of Harrison Financial Group in Citrus Heights, Calif. “I say, usually, but I believe we’re headed that way.” The economy, however, could trip up a January effect. The coming week brings some critical economic reports including the Labor Department’s employment report for December. The government’s news last month that employers cut just 11,000 jobs in November, far fewer than the market anticipated, has lifted expectations for the report due out Friday. Economists surveyed by Thomson Reuters are forecasting on average that 23,000 jobs were lost. If it turns out that employers cut more jobs, investors

already uncertain about how much momentum the recovery will have in 2010 are likely to sell. But a surprisingly strong report could have an equally chilling effect on stocks. The concern in the market is that a healthier economy will lead the Federal Reserve to pull back its stimulus measures, and investors aren’t sure of the economy’s ability to flourish on its own. The January effect could also be threatened by fourth-quarter earnings. Investors have already been pricing in strong earnings reports, especially since the results are being compared against companies’ terrible results from the final three months of 2008. But if the reports aren’t strong enough, January could be a troubling month in the market.

Cablevision, Scripps butt heads over fee hike NEW YORK (AP) – The spat over a fee increase between Cablevision Systems Corp. and Scripps Networks Interactive Inc. heated up Sunday with cable TV viewers in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut still caught in the crossfire. About 3.1 million subscrib-

ers lost access to HGTV and the Food Network on Friday after Scripps pulled its programming while negotiating a new contract with Cablevision. In a statement Sunday, Cablevision said Scripps is demanding a 200 percent fee increase, which would drive

up customer rates if accepted. For 2010, the average increase for subscribers is 3.7 percent. The company maintains that the HGTV and Food Network channels remain available to Cablevision subscribers if Scripps chooses to turn the programming back on while a contract is worked out.

Some Democrats want Gitmo transfers stopped WASHINGTON (AP) – Some Democratic lawmakers who support closing Guantanamo Bay say the U.S. should reconsider whether to repatriate suspected terrorists from Yemen, given the al-Qaida activity in the poor Arab nation. President Barack Obama’s top counterterrorism adviser, John Brennan, said Sunday the transfers will continue if the administration deems them warranted. Six Yemenis returned last month were released after the government there determined they were not a threat, officials in Yemen told The Associated Press. Although Republicans have criticized the transfers to Yemen, some Democrats, including Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., also have urged a halt. AP Rep. Jane Harman, DCalif., a member of the Deputy National Security Adviser John Brennan apHomeland Security Com- pears on “Meet the Press” at NBC studios on Sunday mittee, said Sunday that in Washington. officials should review the transfers.

Passengers on US-bound flights face more screening WASHINGTON (AP) – Passengers flying into the United States from Nigeria, Yemen and other “countries of interest” will be subject to enhanced screening techniques, such as body scans and pat-downs, the Transportation Security Administration said Sunday. Starting today, all pas-

sengers on U.S.-bound international flights will be subject to random screening. In addition, anyone traveling from or through nations regarded as state sponsors of terrorism – as well as “other countries of interest” – will be required to go through enhanced screening. The TSA said

those techniques include full-body pat-downs, carryon bag searches, full-body scanning and explosive detection technology. The State Department lists Cuba, Iran, Sudan and Syria as state sponsors of terrorism. The “other countries” include Nigeria, Yemen and Pakistan.

Evidence lacking for special diets in autism CHICAGO (AP) – An expert panel says that there’s no rigorous evidence that digestive problems are more common in children with autism compared to other children, or that special diets work, contrary to claims by celebrities and vaccine naysayers. Painful digestive prob-

lems can trigger problem behavior in children with autism and should be treated medically, according to the panel’s report that is published in the January issue of Pediatrics and released today.
