Washington Drive is the fifth part of the city where the High Point Initiative – officially the Overt Drug Market Intervention Strategy – will be applied. The High Point Police Department was the first law enforcement agency in the nation to use the strategy, which has been replicated by other cities across the country. The initiative is credited with dropping violence and drug crime in the West End, Daniel Brooks Homes, Southside and E. Green Drive neighborhoods. The new initiative area will be focused on the E. Washington Drive corridor east of Centennial Street to the area surrounding Penn-Griffin School for the Arts and north to Barbee Avenue.



Trinity eyes trash, recycling plan again

COOPERATION SOUGHT: Officials say agencies do not need more consolidation. 1B


HIGH POINT – Trinity officials will take another look at implementing a mandatory trash and recycling service. During the Trinity City Council’s retreat at the Courtyard Marriott in High Point on Saturday, the Trinity City Council directed City Manager Ann Bailie to take informal bids from haulers that may form a corporation to provide the service. Trinity officials have discussed providing the service several times over last few years, but nixed a proposal last year. Currently, Trinity does not offer a public trash or recycling collection service, but officials have said there is a need to provide the service because a plastic bottle ban went into effect in October for the state of North Carolina. “Something has to be done,” Councilman Tyler Earnst said. “I think people are expecting some action out of this retreat.” Implementing the mandatory trash and recycling service will have a cost. The cost for contract curbside trash and recycling collection is an estimated $486,720, according to the city. The current cost for curbside trash collection by local haulers is $180 a year. Several options for paying the service have been proposed. Those options include a fee-only approach with residents paying $15 a month. The city also could implement the service by raising taxes. City officials also could implement the service by using a combination of fees and a transfer from Trinity’s general fund. It’s also been proposed to mandate a fee, use a transfer from the general fund and implement a tax increase. If its approved by the City Council, the service would take about a year to implement, Bailie said. | 888-3657

Winter-related car troubles flood area mechanics BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – Since the cold weather spread across the Triad, mechanic Mark Oliphant has received calls from several sleepy automobile owners who awoke to the sound of their horns blaring at dawn. “As it gets cold, things can start to contract and freeze up,” said Oliphant, a co-owner of Five Points Motors at 2417 E. Kivett Drive. “Sometimes those things actually pull the horn contact together.” A frozen horn is one of many unexpected problems caused by low temperatures that motorists have brought to Oliphant in recent weeks. Those problems, however, translate into more business for mechanics and automobile service providers. “A lot of people start having problems with their heating systems, or they start getting poor fuel mileage,” he said. “We’ve definitely seen some increase due to the extreme cold we’re having.” Batteries tend to wear and drivers notice coolant leaks more often in extreme temperatures, whether

hot or cold, according to Rick Cecil, a co-owner of Holiday Tire and Automotive Inc. He said there has been a drastic increase in business at the shop, located at 619 Greensboro Road, since the cold weather began to set in about a month ago. “I don’t know what the whole deal is, but it has been extremely busy for us,” Cecil said. “We usually see some increase at this time of the year, but we’re seeing more of it this year from the prolonged cold.” His customers have experienced problems with belts and hoses in their vehicles, which are common issues that Cecil said he sees each winter. Cecil and Oliphant also agree that drivers should keep their tire pressure in check as it depletes quickly in the cold weather. In addition to driver’s summoning their mechanics for help, AAA Carolinas reported a 45 percent increase in service calls last week, citing low temperatures as the cause of the increase. It happens every year, but Cecil said some of the problems can be prevented by “winterizing” a car, or having routine maintenance performed in the fall before win-



Tips for maintaining automobiles in the winter: Regularly check the tire pressure. Pressure decreases more rapidly in cold air. Check the battery’s charge and cold cranking amps, as well as its connections for corrosion. Cranking power can be reduced by as much as 35 percent in cold weather, according to AAA Carolinas. Keep the gas tank half-full. This will help to avoid freezing gas lines. Never use windshield wipers to clear ice as it damages the wipers. Always use an ice scraper or canned de-icer. ter arrives. “If they winterize their car beforehand, most people should be able to get through the winter with no problem,” he said. | 888-3617

A cold freezing mist emanates from Looking Glass Falls during the frigid weather, Sunday in Brevard.

Cold weather grips South MIAMI (AP) – Freakish cold weather continued to grip the South, with snow flurries spotted around Orlando and a record low set for Miami, and forecasters said Sunday that more of the same was expected. About 100,000 tropical fish being raised on a fish farm in South Florida couldn’t bear the cold. Michael Breen, 43, who owns Breen Acres Aquatics in the small town of Loxahatchee Groves just north of Miami, said temperatures dropped below 30 degrees overnight, leaving ice on his 76 ponds. The ponds should be green because of algae bloom that feeds baby fish, he said. “But all the ponds are crystal clear and fish are laying on the bottom. What we see on the surface died two days ago,” he said, referring to the dead fish found floating Sunday morning. Breen estimated he lost $535,000 in business because of the cold.

DURHAM – Durham County’s director of public health said Saturday she will pursue different strategies for vaccinating residents against the H1N1 flu. “H1N1 is still prevalent,” said the director, Gayle Harris. “We need to get folks vaccinated so we can actually stop the transmission. This is a rare opportunity.” Harris made her comments a few hours after the county closed the doors on a five-hour, three-location effort. It represented her department’s biggest vaccination effort yet since the H1N1 virus, sometimes referred to as swine flu, first emerged last spring. The department was

--Sunbeam, magnifying glass set fire in Wyoming home RIVERTON, Wyo. (AP) – Officials say a magnifying glass set on a stand in a sunny room started a small blaze in a Wyoming home. UPS worker Buddy Armstrong was delivering a package to 84year-old Thomas Guthrie’s Dubois home on Tuesday when he heard

an alarm inside. Armstrong, also a volunteer firefighter, called emergency workers and went inside the home, along with a sheriff’s deputy. Sgt. Jerry Evagelatos says they found a lot of smoke, but couldn’t find the source until Dubois firefighters arrived. Evagelatos says the sun

was shining at just the right angle to hit a magnifying glass on a stand. The glass magnified the sunbeam, which set a nearby pile of mail on fire. Evagelatos says the fire was extinguished before it damaged the home. Guthrie wasn’t at home during the fire.


GUILFORD COUNTY – For Commissioner Kirk Perkins, one way to make sure rural residents dispose of their trash properly is to make them pay for it. Guilford County leaders again are considering universal trash pickup for unincorporated areas of the county. Each taxpayer would pay a fee listed on the property tax bill. Residents using city services would not be charged. “A lot of people don’t take advantage of the services we have and bury their trash in the backyard or burn it,” Perkins told the Guilford County Board of Commissioners during a retreat last week. Because Guilford County does not operate a landfill, 34,000 households in unincorporated areas and

others in small towns can either take their trash to a landfill and pay a dumping fee or pay to have their trash hauled away by six county-franchised haulers. Weekly curb service with recycling is about $16 per month and weekly back-door service is about $25 a month. Through the years, commissioners have discussed mandatory collection, which could reduce illegal dumping, increase recycling and lower collection costs. Commissioners could see another proposal by this summer, Perkins said. The board would have to decide whether to use one vendor or to use the franchised companies providing service. “And if everybody pays, it probably would be cheaper for everybody,” said the McLeansville Democrat.

prepared to dispense 2,000 vaccinations each at Hillside and Riverside high schools and Neal Middle School, but only distributed 1,139 doses at all three sites combined. In comparison, about 840 vaccinations were performed on Dec. 16 – a number that Harris suggested would have been higher had it not followed a partial H1N1 vaccine recall; 1,731 were done on Nov. 18; and 2,351 were done on Nov. 11. All of those vaccinations were performed at single sites. By noon Saturday, two hours after the vaccination clinics opened their doors, Harris sensed that the turnout would not be nearly as high as available supplies. “We’ve talked about it a lot and people have gotten complacent,” Harris said.

Coastal aquarium hosts exhibit on sharks MANTEO (AP) – Beachgoers on the North Carolina Outer Banks will be able to get a close look at sharks this summer without scurrying to shore. The Virginian-Pilot of Norfolk reports that visitors to the North Carolina Aquarium on Roanoke Island see many of the ocean predators thanks to

a $75,000 exhibit. A 300-pound sand tiger shark is the star of the “Graveyard of the Atlantic� exhibit, and is among the nine sharks in the 285,000-gallon tank. More are expected in the coming months. Small sharks called chain dogfish will be displayed in a saltwater gallery tank.

Tropical fish that are commonly called sharks but are not – for instance, rainbow sharks, red tail sharks, and bala sharks – will be displayed in the freshwater gallery. Ten years after the renovated and enlarged aquarium reopened, the sharks remain the most popular of its exhibits.

“We’re still trying to develop the blueprint for all of this,� said Frank Hudgins, the aquarium’s director of operations and husbandry. “We’re making incredible progress.� Over the years, he said, some of the original sharks have been removed because they either grew too big, had health issues

or were aggressive. Animals that outgrow tanks or have issues are typically traded to other aquariums or, less often, released after being checked by a veterinarian. The five sandbar sharks, three sand tiger sharks and one nurse shark in residence now get along well.

RALEIGH (AP) – A North Carolina group watching the spread of environment-changing foreign plants wants to declare war on the invaders. For a week beginning Sunday, the North Carolina Exotic Plant Pest Council wants people to focus on invasive species. Plant Pest Council President Rick Iverson says kudzu is probably the invasive plant that most people know best, but it’s so widespread that it can’t be stopped. Iverson says it’s time to look out for the next kudzu and stop it from spreading before it becomes a serious problem. The group says early detection gives eradication measures better chances for success. The Southeast Exotic Pest Plant Council has information on invasive plants, what they look like and the problems they create on its Web site.

JOHN HOOD: Blame Head Start review delay on expected bad news. TOMORROW

Opinion Page Editor: Vince Wheeler (336) 888-3517


Someone please answer carbon dioxide question Listening to the radio the other day, I heard something that made me pause and wonder if it is true and accurate. Maybe Otis Robertson can round up a few of these local experts he referenced in his Dec. 29 letter to the editor and get me an answer. The folks on the radio were talking about carbon dioxide and that, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, it was now a greenhouse gas (you know, the ones causing all this global warming we have been having the last several days). It has been a long time since science class, but isn’t that the gas that plants use to produce life-sustaining oxygen? They were saying it was heavier than air (one and half times heavier) and therefore would drop toward the ground instead of rising into the atmosphere. How is it a greenhouse gas if it doesn’t rise and trap heat? Would one of the “experts” please help me out? Robertson also stated in his letter that the previous administration started “undersea wars.” Again, someone please help me because I haven’t seen or heard anything about this. While waiting for my answers, I’ll just ponder on the fact that we pay more money in interest on the national debt in one month than the FAA budget for a whole year ($17.9 billion in interest compared to $16.3 billion for the FAA – Happy New Year! PERRY DAVIS High Point

Obama administration puts US in perilous positions This is in response to Stephen Madison’s attack on Cathy Hinson in recent letters. I ask, what makes him believe his party of liberal loudmouths, his opinions and his assessments are more knowledgeable than Hinson? I must say he and Kay Spangle seem to be typical radical Democrats who are unwilling to allow the “other side” to have their



opinions and views of decisions made by this administration. It also appears these radical views are targeted at women. Sarah Palin is still being crucified by the far left. In my opinion, Madison and Spangle are incorrect about Obama’s reasons for prolonging his decision to send troops to Afghanistan. It appears he has no idea how to fight a war or how to secure our nation through Homeland Security. The only talent he seems to have is community organizing. Perhaps former President Bush made mistakes, but I felt safe and now I do not. President Obama is putting this nation in perilous positions. We are at war, and apparently, we do not have a commander in chief or his appointed czars who understand this. Many like Madison seem to be radically critical of the Republican Party, but none have solutions to the tremendous problems of the United States. I resent people espousing venom against well-intended, loyal, godly Americans. I had seven family members serve in the military from World War II through the Gulf War; therefore, I feel I have the right to defend those in this community from radical attacks.

Thank you City Council for listening to our concerns Let me first publicly thank the High Point City Council for working with the downtown city businesses and listening to our concerns about the Market Overlay Plan. I wrote a public letter criticizing them once, so it is only just that I write a public letter to thank them for bringing this issue to a close. They listened to the citizens and our concerns, taking into consideration the economic problems we deal with and voted to scrap the proposed zoning district. Next, “there really is no such thing as bad press. As a matter of fact, bad press translates to more traffic than good press,” so stated John Chow. So here’s a big thank you to all my critics out there for keeping my name in the papers. The public will certainly know who I am and will pay close attention to me when I start campaigning for the 6th District U.S. House seat. They will listen to what I say, to see if I tell the truth or if, like critics claim, I do not. Again, with a smile, thank you for calling attention to me! The other issue I would like to address is the executive order Obama signed on Dec. 16, 2009: Amending Executive Order 12425 Designating Interpol As A Public

International Organization Entitled To Enjoy Certain Privileges, Exemptions, And Immunities. Since my critics will not believe any interpretation I give, here are three references listed on the Internet that explain the seriousness of this executive order: • • http://corner.nationalreview. com/post/?q=MGY3MTI4YTRjZ mYwMGU1ZjZhOGJmNmQ0NmJiZDNmMDY (This is alarming.) index.cfm?page=orderdec1209. htm I urge readers to type these links into their address bar to see for themselves why our vigilance is necessary.

the joke. Stern, who had said he would delay judgment until authorities finished their investigation, promptly handed down an “indefinite” suspension without pay. Arenas, said the commissioner, is “not currently fit” to play. The All-Star guard is in the midst of a contract worth $111 million. The Washington Post calculates that he will lose $147,000 for each game he sits. The speculation is that he could be sitting the rest of the season – or longer. Which will leave him plenty of time to make his court dates. This all reportedly grows out of an incident on the team plane wherein Arenas ribbed a teammate, Javaris Crittenton, for losing money in a card game. Crittenton took exception and the argument escalated with him half-jokingly threatening to shoot Arenas in the surgically repaired

knee that sidelined him most of the last two years. Two days later, Arenas hauled out four unloaded pistols, which he says he kept in his locker because he didn’t want them around his children. He placed the guns near Crittenton’s locker with a note: “Pick one.” Arenas, a free spirit and self-described “goofball,” says this was meant as a joke. Crittenton didn’t laugh. According to eyewitnesses, he produced his own gun and loaded a clip. Crittenton denies it. And here, it seems worthwhile to offer a reminder: the leading cause of death for black men 15 to 34 is homicide, usually by gunfire, usually at the hands of another black man. Arenas is 28, Crittenton, 22. Both are black. Granted, stupidity knows no color. And yet ... it is difficult to think of these two guys whipping

An expensive lesson: A gun is not a joke he astonishing thing is that he did it even after. Even after news broke that he had brandished guns in the locker room of the NBA’s Washington Wizards at a Dec. 21 practice. Even after meeting with federal prosecutors and local police investigating his violation of the city’s gun laws. Even after being criticized by the Rev. Al Sharpton, NBA legend Karl Malone, and an army of fans, sports columnists and TV commentators. Even after apologizing to his team, his fans and the OPINION NBA and saying he understood the Leonard seriousness of the Pitts matter. ■■■ Even “after” all that, Gilbert Arenas somehow managed to take a disaster and make it worse. It happened last week in Philadelphia. Every team has its pregame rituals: some chant, some dance, some box or high five. With his career and even his freedom hanging in the balance for a misadventure with guns, Arenas stood at the center of his team’s huddle, made his hands into pistols, and pretended to shoot his teammates. In a widely circulated photo of the incident, he’s laughing and they are, too. But NBA Commissioner David Stern didn’t get

out guns like something out of Dodge City and not see shadows of all the other men of the same heritage and age group who once were here but now are gone because they regarded guns in the same profoundly unserious manner. Because they saw them not as tools of hunting or self-defense but, rather, as toys – as argument settlers and point makers, as extensions of their personal reproductive gear, as a means of demanding respect. We have paid the price for that idiotic mind-set in funerals. Funerals, an endless string. So it is troubling to see these two boy-men unable to let it go, even in the midst of lives most people would consider wildly successful. And it is downright appalling that Arenas could not grasp the seriousness of the matter even with his very future at stake. A gun is not a joke. Maybe he gets that now. But look at what it cost him to learn: his livelihood, his reputation, maybe his freedom. But even at that, you could argue that Arenas is a lucky man. Some of us have seen funerals in an endless string so we know: It could have cost him a whole lot more.

Officials: Agencies must cooperate BY DAVID NIVENS ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

GUILFORD COUNTY – County human service agencies need more cooperation, not consolidation, commissioners seemed to agree Thursday. The agencies just need a little more streamlining and consolidated intake services, said several commissioners attending a retreat. “The directors should be talking with each other and working on a single point of entry because the agencies see the same people,” said Guilford Board of Commissioners Chairman Skip Alston. “We

may need a resolution to get them together to do this.” Guilford County officials have the authority to follow the lead of Mecklenburg and Wake counties to consolidate health, mental health and social services into one agency with commissioners taking on a larger governance role. Currently, the administrative boards of the three county agencies hire and fire the department heads, and commissioners approve the salaries and raises of the agency leaders. Experts point to better service through consolidation, not savings.


Consolidated services: In Wake and Mecklenburg counties, the boards of commissioners act as the boards of health, social services and mental health. Wake County has a Human Services Advisory Board, and Mecklenburg uses several standing advisory committees.

Mecklenburg County consolidated services in the 1980s under a local authorization bill passed by the General Assembly, said Jerry Fox, a retired

Mecklenburg administrator. “It is a better service to the client and better coordination,” Fox said. “I can’t show cost savings, but you do save time. There are no longer three independent boards that do not talk to one another.” Mecklenburg commissioners and the former three agency administrative boards supported the consolidation, Fox said, as did the community. Alston said he brought the issue to the retreat because there had been “whispers” of consolidation considerations for weeks. “A single entry port for

the agencies is the answer, not getting rid of the boards,” said Democratic Commissioner Carolyn Coleman. “We should have this discussion with the agency directors,” said Democratic Commissioner Paul Gibson. County information specialists have been working on an intake software package. But sharing may have limits. “There are legal problems sharing information if the departments are not combined,” said County Attorney Mark Payne. | 888-3626

ASHEBORO – Students in some of Randolph Community College’s more popular programs have a chance to get a little help paying for their education. The Dan Thomas Memorial Scholarship, funded by Wayne Thomas, his family and the employees of Dan Thomas Auto Center and Wayne Thomas Chevrolet, has been established to benefit students in the Automotive Systems Technology and Autobody Repair programs. The scholarship is offered through the Randolph Community College Foundation. The first Dan Thomas Memorial Scholarship will be awarded to an RCC student for the 2010-11 school year. Because it is an endowed scholarship, it will be awarded annually in perpetuity. Donor contributions to endowed scholarships are invested, and only a portion of the earnings is used to fund the annual scholarship award. “Our family and the employees of our companies wanted to honor my Dad’s memory,” Wayne Thomas said about the scholarship. “He was a longtime supporter of RCC way back when it was Randolph Technical College. In fact, he still called it RTC. “We felt it was an appropriate way to honor him because of his support of education particularly in the automotive areas, both the automotive mechanics and auto body shop programs.” For information on the RCC Foundation, contact Joyce Wolford, executive director, at (336) 633-0295 or jbwolford@randolph. edu.

Police want nuisance homes confiscated AT A GLANCE



Street-crime initiative moves to Washington Drive area. 1A


HIGH POINT – Part of the High Point Police Department’s strategy to curb crime in the Washington Drive neighborhood involves a lawsuit aimed at seizing suspected drug houses. Last month, police initiated a civil forfeiture case that asks a judge to declare properties at 228, 230 and 232 Hobson St. public nuisances. Police argue that the owners have allowed criminal activity there over a lengthy period of time and should be forced to forfeit the properties under the state’s nuisance abatement law. The properties are owned by Fred Frazier and his wife, May Frazier, of Linwood. They were recently given until Feb. 5 to file an answer to the suit. The suit argues that the properties have been used “for the purpose of the illegal possession and sale” of drugs and have been the scene of repeated disturbances, such as fights and assaults that police have responded to on numerous occasions.

The nuisance-abatement lawsuit involving the Washington Drive-area properties asks for a judge’s order compelling the defendants to forfeit the houses to the Guilford County Board of Education. The first-ever forfeiture of a private residence in High Point through the state’s nuisance abatement law occurred last year after a judge ruled that a nuisance existed at 708 Hendrix St., where a pattern of drug crime and other illegal activity was documented. Police used the nuisance abatement statute to shut down nightclubs and other businesses five times during the 1990s.

The suit includes information about 51 incidents dating to 2005 that involved drug arrests and/or seizures, as well as undercover drug purchases – most of which involved crack cocaine – and fights, assaults, domestic disputes, shootings and robberies at the properties. Four police officers submitted affidavits with the suit that document some of the history. In his affidavit, Detective C.H.


Cheeks III described one incident from Dec. 1, 2008, when the Vice & Narcotics Unit executed a search warrant at 232 Hobson St. that led to federal drug charges on one man and felony sale/delivery drug charges within 1,000 feet of a school on another man who was in possession of 12.33 grams of crack cocaine. Police said they sent letters, met with the Fraziers and took other measures to try to get them to address the problems. The Fraziers said Friday they have been trying to sell the houses for years but haven’t gotten a fair offer for them. They said they had invested time and money trying to keep them up but are both disabled and that they plan to fight the suit. “I am a little perturbed over the (suit),” said Fred Frazier. “I get the feeling they’re trying to paint me with the same brush as (the people involved in criminal activity at the properties), which is not true. I have made several offers to try to sell those properties to the city and now they’re basically trying to steal them.” As for criminal activity at the properties, Frazier said he was aware of “some of it, as far as calls for service. As far as any drugs, I could guess, but I didn’t have any positive proof that would stand in court.” 888-3531

Mary Daly, a radical feminist philosopher and a fractious presence at Boston College, where her refusal to admit men to her classes ended a threedecade teaching career, has died. She was 81. Brilliant, bawdy and cantankerous, Daly was a theologian who came to prominence with the publication of her first book, “The Church and the Second Sex” (1968), a critique of the treatment of women in Roman Catholicism that prompted an unsuccessful effort by the Jesuit-run Boston College to fire her. She evolved from a radical Catholic, hopeful of church reform, to a “post-Christian” lesbian feminist who believed that a radical feminist trying to change the church was “like a black person trying to reform the Ku Klux Klan.” “She was the first feminist philosopher, really,” said activist Robin Morgan, author of “Sisterhood Is Powerful” (1970). “She opened the door for women to question everything.”

North Carolina’s first Family Justice Center is on track to open May 1, says Director Deanna Manning. The center will house service providers for domestic abuse and violence victims in the former county social services building on Martin Street in Burlington. The building is undergoing a major overhaul and also will house the county fire marshal’s office. A Burlington police domestic violence detective and another from the Sheriff’s Office will be part of the center, as well as workers from Family Abuse Services, the CrossRoads Sexual

Assault Response and Resource Center, and UNC Horizons, a women’s substance abuse program based in Chapel Hill. The county Department of Social Services will provide a child protective unit. Community Services, The Salvation Army and other local police departments are among the agencies that will provide services off-site. Manning said she will hire an intake worker sometime before the center opens. The position will be paid for by a $292,000 federal grant the center will receive over two years. Another two-year renewable grant from the Governor’s Crime Commission is paying for Manning’s salary.

Dick Taylor opens the driver’s side door on his 1936 Stout Scarab in Lumberton. The Scarab is one of only nine built, and there are only six known to be in existence.

Lumberton man owns rare precursor to minivan Maine. The museum owns one of the world’s few Scarabs. Only eight or nine of the vehicles – the jury is out on just how many units were produced – were built from 1934 to 1939. And Taylor, an 81-year-old life insurance salesman who lives in Lumberton, owns one of them. He’s a collector. His fleet of vintage automobiles includes a 1941 Mercedes Benz custom-built for Nazi leader Hermann Goering; a 1948 Davis three-wheeler; and a 1949 Chevrolet convertible. Among his prized 33 vehicles, Taylor calls the Scarab the most fascinating. “It was so revolutionary,� he said. “That’s the thing about the Scarab. It’s just an aerodynamically designed automobile ahead of its time.� Curtis, the museum director, said the Scarab featured several innovations. “It was one of the first vehicles made for the public with fourwheel independent suspension,

rear-engine drive. Ground effect. It was all-clad underneath, like a race car. The thing actually handles wonderfully.� The Stout Scarab was the first car without running boards. It was built with electric door locks. The interior is comfortable and roomy, with a table and movable chairs. And since it was built of aluminum – making it lighter than most cars – the Scarab gets a creditable 18.8 mpg from its Ford flathead V-8 motor. Taylor keeps his fully restored automobile in storage in a warehouse. “Very seldom,� he noted, has he driven it. And then only for tooling around Lumberton. He bought the Scarab from Bill Harrah’s estate in the 1980s, after the casino entrepreneur died. Taylor paid $20,000 for it. “It was all there,� he said. “It was just raggedy.� Over the years, he has sunk another $300,000 or so into its restoration.

Sisters’ wedding pact doesn’t pass test of time


ear Abby: When we were younger, my sister, “Patti,� and I made a pact to be each other’s maid of honor. It was Patti’s suggestion, and we both thought I would soon marry my then-boyfriend. It didn’t happen. A few years later, when Patti became engaged, she asked a friend with whom she had recently reconnected to be her maid of honor. She never addressed the issue with me or offered any explanation. I was crushed, but kept mum. In the years that followed, my sister told me she regretted her decision and has apologized, which helped soothe my feelings. Last week I became engaged. I want Patti in my wedding, but as a bridesmaid. My best friend, “Meg,� has always been there for me in ways I never knew a friend could. I was her maid of honor three years ago, and cherished the experience as one that signified the meaning of our friendship. I feel torn because of the promise I made to my sister, even though she didn’t honor her promise to me. I don’t want to hurt Patti, and I also don’t want to seem retaliatory. Can you offer me any guidance? – Muddled Maiden in Texas

Dear Muddled Maiden: Yes. Patti’s mistake was in not TALKING to you ADVICE about the fact that Dear she had Abby changed ■■■ her mind about having you as her maid of honor. My advice is to warmly invite your sister to join your wedding party as a bridesmaid, and explain why you have decided to ask your friend Meg to be maid of honor. You may find that Patti no longer expects you to keep that long ago promise, particularly in light of the fact that when she chose her bridal attendants she had a case of temporary amnesia.

Do they never think about the millions of people who are starving? I would appreciate your comments. – Pragmatist in N.Y.

Dear Pragmatist: No, I doubt they consider that while they are stuffing themselves, others are literally starving, nor have I heard that the sponsors have donated a portion of the proceeds to feed the hungry. This Thanksgiving my local paper featured a color photo on the front page of a family celebrating at the beach, pulling a large turkey out of a fryer.

Marines charged in restaurant shooting CAMP LEJEUNE (AP) – A third North Carolina-based Marine has been arrested after three men were shot outside a restaurant near Camp Lejeune last weekend. Authorities say 19year-old Lance Cpl. Robert J. Goense, of Union, N.J., is charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill. Marine officials say Goense is currently being held in the Onslow

County Jail. He is a rifleman assigned to the 3rd Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment. Two other Camp Lejeune Marines are also charged in the shooting early Sunday morning. Investigators say several people were arguing in the restaurant, and began fighting with each other in the parking lot. It wasn’t immediately clear if Goense had an attorney.

LUMBERTON (AP) – Dick Taylor doesn’t drive his 1936 Stout Scarab around Lumberton much. But it’s hard to miss when he does. The eccentric and visionary Stout Scarab – with its short, stubby nose and streamlined shape – has been called a predecessor of the minivan. But back in the 1930s, pioneering aircraft designer William Bushnell Stout wasn’t thinking about soccer moms or family transportation. Stout envisioned the car as an office-on-wheels, complete with foldout table. The 16-foot-long Scarab is a sight to behold. Picture the tear-drop shape of an old Greyhound bus, or the body of a postwar airplane on wheels. Or a stretched-out Volkswagen bug, an unsurprising comparison since the Scarab is also named for a beetle. “It’s funky looking. There’s a lot of aircraft design in it,� said Peter Curtis of the Owls Head Transportation Museum in Owls Head,

hen driving through neighborhoods, I notice house numbers. Yes, I know it sounds a little strange, but to firefighters, house numbers are important. Most people put little thought into the visibility or location of their house numbers. I can understand this because you already know where your house is located. FIREHOUSE But CHAT think about Lee what hapKnight pens if ■■■ you have an emergency. The last thing you want is a delay in receiving help because emergency crews had problems locating your home. Here are some basic guidelines on installing house numbers to avoid finding yourself in this situation. On the average-size house, use numbers that are a minimum of 3 inches high. On larger houses or commercial businesses, numbers should be 6 inches. If your house is more than 100 hundred feet from the road, or your numbers are hard to see because of landscaping, mount your numbers on a nameplate sign at the street. Contrast is as important as the size of the numbers. It isn’t much help to have numbers if they cannot be seen. Think about brass numbers against a white post or light colored exterior walls. They are really hard to see. A better combination would be black numbers against a light colored background. Another option is to paint numbers on the curb, but this should be in addition to other markings because it does not satisfy High Point city code. The big disadvantage to numbers on the curb is that they are not visible when covered by snow. It’s also important to remember that numbers are harder to see at night. The next time you pull into your driveway at night, take a look at your house numbers. Does their location make it easy to find and read? The last worry you need during an emergency is whether the fire department will be delayed because your numbers were not visible. Firefighters spend many hours learning street locations, but it’s impossible to know everyone’s house number. Help us save those few extra seconds by making your house numbers easy too see. It could make a difference. 24/7/365: You call; we respond.

Approaches to prediabetes


ear Dr. Donohue: I am concerned about my medicine. I am 72. About four years ago, my doctor said I was prediabetic and prescribed Avandia. I go for a checkup every three months, and the doctor checks my sugar, blood pressure, etc. A few months ago, I read that there were questions about Avandia’s safety. My doctor did not know about the risks, but said to keep taking it. Will you tell me more about it? – F.B.


Prediabetes is the condition where the fasting plasma glucose (blood sugar) ranges from 100 mg/dL (5.5 mmol/L) to 125 (6.9). It’s a widespread condition with about one-quarter of older adults having it. It’s not diabetes. However, around 11 percent of prediabetics become true diabetics within three years, and about half do so within 10 years. Weight loss, daily exercise and a change of diet often can take people out of the “prediabetes” category and put them in the “normal” category. Many doctors favor treating their prediabetic patients with oral diabetes medicines in order to prevent progression to diabetes. Avandia is an oral diabetes medicine that’s been around for many years. It causes some people to retain fluid. Retention of fluid, in turn, can lead to congestive heart failure in a few instances. It has been suspected of possibly inducing angina and heart attacks. These side effects are limited to a small















number of people, and the proof of the relationship isn’t accepted by all authorities. You’ve HEALTH been on the mediDr. Paul cine for Donohue four years ■■■ without any trouble. It’s not likely that you would ever get into any trouble. If you’re uneasy about the medicine, you have two options. One is to try to control your prediabetes with diet, exercise and weight loss. The second is to take one of the many other oral diabetes medicines. You have to discuss this with your doctor. Dear Dr. Donohue: I have had Peyronie’s disease for about two years. I have taken vitamin E, but it hasn’t helped. The doctor suggested surgery. He said it will shorten my penis by 1 to 1.5 inches. I don’t want surgery. Is there any other medicine? – C.M.

in one to two years. In addition to vitamin E, Potaba (potassium aminobenzoate) often is prescribed. It’s not universally successful, either. Verapamil injections into the lump are another treatment. In resistant cases, surgical procedures are a way of approaching this problem. One is to create a pinch opposite to the lump, and that straightens the penis. It shortens it a bit, too. Removal of the lump is another surgical procedure. Insertion of flexible rods aligns the penis without diminishing its length. Dear Dr. Donohue: Some months ago, you wrote about white spots on the skin. I have white spots on my arms and on my face. I asked two dermatologists, and they said there was nothing they could do. Please give your opinion. – J.M.

I wrote about tinea versicolor, a fungal infection that causes small to large white blotches. Selenium sulfide is one of the medicines used to treat it. I don’t believe that is what you have.

Elm Street Cafe is transformed into Betty’s Diner for filming of “Elephant Sighs,” which is being shot in the High Point area.



Local cafe becomes movie-set diner BY JIMMY TOMLIN ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER


IGH POINT – A small cafe will make it to the big screen later this year, courtesy of a movie currently being filmed in the greater High Point area. For one day last weekend, moviemakers converted Elm Street Cafe into Betty’s Diner to shoot a scene that will appear in the new Ed Asner movie, “Elephant Sighs,” which began filming in High Point on Jan. 3 and is scheduled to continue through Jan. 24. “They were here for the whole day filming,” says Erhan Patan, who owns Elm Street Cafe with his wife, Mary Messer. “At first, I was like, ‘I can’t do that – it’s my day off.’ But they paid me, and it wasn’t bad. It was interesting to watch.” Patan also got to meet the 80-year-old Asner – a seven-time Emmy Awardwinner best-known for “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” and “Lou Grant” – and even posed for a picture with the veteran actor. “He’s a very funny guy, always joking,” Patan says. “He was a really nice man.” According to Messer, the moviemakers were looking for “a small, New Jerseystyle diner, and they asked us if they could use our restaurant for filming. We figured it would be exciting – something new and different – so we said yes. It was on a day (Sunday, Jan. 3) we were closed anyway, so that worked out good.” “Elephant Sighs,” which has been performed numerous times as a play,

was written in 1997 by Ed Simpson, a theater professor at High Point University, who also directs the movie. Other actors in the movie include John Cariani, Jack Kehler and David Wells, and several of Simpson’s students at HPU are serving as interns on the film set. The plot revolves around a young lawyer who has just moved to town. He’s approached by an older man – played by Asner – and invited to join the man’s group. The lawyer readily accepts – thinking it will be a good social and professional networking opportunity – without even knowing what kind of group he’s joining. As it turns out, all of the men have different ideas about the group and its purpose, but the relationships that form among them are at the heart of the movie. Simpson has described his screenplay as a comedy that deals with loss, loneliness and the healing power of friendship, even in men’s lives. The scene filmed at Elm Street Cafe – er, um, Betty’s Diner – depicts Asner and another actor having a conversation over breakfast. And although Patan was able to have his photograph made with Asner, he wasn’t allowed to tell anyone about the filming until the moviemakers were gone, so they wouldn’t be bothered by curious rubberneckers. “I had to keep my mouth shut,” Patan says. Now, though, a photo next to the cafe’s cash register shows Asner and calls attention to the cafe’s moment in the spotlight. | 888-3579

DAILY QUESTION You hold: S A 8 3 2 H K Q 10 9 3 D K Q 10 C K. You open one heart, your partner responds two clubs, you bid two spades and he tries three diamonds. What do you say?

AWAKE South would have lossed the slam if East had been awake. South is marked with the K-Q of diamonds. (He wouldn’t bid 6NT with A 8 3 2, K Q J 10 3, K 10 2, K). So East won’t give away the slam if he unloads the ace of hearts on the third club. South is sunk. To set up the hearts, he must lose to West’s jack, and then West takes the jack of clubs.

ANSWER: In your partnership, does a “reverse” after a two-level response promise extra strength? If your bid of two spades was strong, you can bid 3NT now, but if you could have bid two spades with a minimum hand, stall with three hearts. If partner bids 3NT next, you’ll raise to 4NT.

Don’t limit what you can and cannot do because someone is burdening you. ★★★★★ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Shoot for the stars. You can accomplish anything you put your mind to. There is plenty to learn and to experiment with. Schedule wisely so you are sure to have time for the people and projects most important to you. ★★★ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Turn your interests into a solution or remedy for financial loss. Put what you know and do best to work for you. Work with what you have instead of trying to invent something new that may or may not be cost efficient. ★★★ CANCER (June 21-July 22): A partnership will depend on your courage and your adaptability. Don’t limit what you can do because you fear change. Look past the existing problems and see the possibilities. Focus on the here and now. ★★★ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Take on a challenging project, hobby or activity. Interact with someone you can learn from or who can help you with work, education or picking up additional skills. Who you know will be just as important as what you know. ★★★★★ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Emotional issues may stand in the way of a good time. Don’t forgo something you’ve been looking forward to because someone is being difficult or trying to make you feel guilty. Express your feelings and get on with what’s really important to you. ★★ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You may have to take the blame for something that is happening with a friend, relative or loved one. With an empathetic approach to what you see and hear, you can keep the peace and help everyone involved. ★★★★ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Do not rely on someone else to fix things for you. Keep your feelings regarding someone from your past a secret. You could end up in an awkward position, being questioned by someone who is feeling uncertain about your future together. ★★★ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Showing your emotions can work in your favor if you are honest about what you’ve done in the past and what you plan for the future. A change at home can bring about less personal and financial stress. Sizing down may be your only answer. ★★★ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Helping others will be a reminder of how lucky you are. Do what you can to change someone else’s life and it will undoubtedly change your own. Love is in the stars. ★★★ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You cannot be anyone but who you are and, the sooner you start to appreciate yourself, the sooner everyone else will, too. Don’t allow someone to put you down when it’s jealousy that is behind such actions. Believe in yourself. ★★★★ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t take anything said to heart. Look beyond the present and focus on the future. Pull in favors and, at the same time, realize that you have some fans who are willing to help you get whatever you want. ★★

BRIDGE My friend the English professor says that spelling is becoming a lossed art. Judging by today’s deal, so’s discarding. Against 6NT, West led a spade, and South won in dummy and led a heart: five, king, four. South next cashed the king of clubs, led to the ace of diamonds and took the A-Q of clubs. If the jack had fallen, he’d have had 12 tricks, but East threw a diamond on the third club. South then led another heart. East played low again, but South couldn’t afford to lose a heart to West, who had the jack of clubs. South put up the queen, led another heart, and won four hearts, three clubs, three diamonds and two spades.

ONE STAR: It’s best to avoid conflicts; work behind the scenes or read a good book. Two stars: You can accomplish but don’t rely on others for help. 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.

Heels trip Hokies

HIGH POINT – High Point University coach Scott Cherry didn’t enjoy Saturday’s victory over Big South preseason favorite Radford for very long. About an hour after the Panthers put the final touches on the 83-77 triumph that prompted Cherry to thank the crowd for coming and most of the players to receive congratulations from university president Nido Qubein, the head coach was walking through the Millis Center gym toward his office, ready to go to work again. “Got to go watch film,” Cherry said. “Got a game Monday.” The Panthers travel to Durham tonight for a rematch with N.C. Central, a team that HPU handled 70-58 at the Millis Center on Dec. 29. The trip east will be HPU’s first road game since that contest.

Defense has been the key to the turnaround, said Panther leading scorer Nick Barbour. “We’ve got to continue to play defense the way we are,” Barbour said. “After the losses to Marshall and Youngstown, We worked on executing the defense for a couple of practices. Coach told us if we keep playing defense like we have been, we can be pretty good. We just need to go in there and execute and play defense like we have been.” | 888-3519






Panther men set sights on N.C. Central BY GREER SMITH ENTERPRISE SPORTS WRITER



Davis, UNC pull away from Va. Tech CHAPEL HILL (AP) – Ed Davis had 20 points, 11 rebounds and four blocked shots, and No. 9 North Carolina overcame a big game from Malcolm Delaney to beat Virginia Tech 78-64 on Sunday night. Larry Drew II added 14 points while Deon Thompson and Will Graves added 13 apiece for the Tar Heels (12-4, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference). They opened the second half with an efficient burst that helped them bounce back from a surprising overtime loss at the College of Charleston, improve to 11-0 at home and avoid losing its ACC opener for the second straight year. Delaney returned from an ankle injury to score 20 of his 26 points in the first half, and almost single-handedly willed the Hokies (12-2, 0-1) to their second victory in Chapel Hill since joining the league in 2004. Dorenzo Hudson added 14 points on 7-of-22 shooting for Virginia Tech – which had its ninegame winning streak snapped. Graves hit three timely 3-pointers for the Tar Heels, who started slowly before putting themselves ahead to stay by opening the second half with a 15-6 run. They scored on eight of 10 trips downcourt, many on dunks and uncontested layups, and went up 49-44 on Drew’s steal and layup with about 14 minutes remaining. The lead grew to 60-52 with just under eight minutes left on Graves’ 3 – just the Tar Heels’ second in two games. Drew hit a 3 with 51⁄2 minutes to play to put UNC up 66-55 – the first double-figure advantage for either team – then sent many fans to the exits when his 3-pointer with about two minutes left made it 74-59.


’ll admit it. I’m facing Football Watching Withdrawal Syndrome (also known as FWWS) tonight. After a stretch in which at least one college or pro football game was televised in prime time for 28 of the past 33 days, there is no pigskin action tonight. Zippo. Zilch. No go, amigo. I regret complaining about so many college bowl games in December and early January. I take it all back. Right now, I’d be more than happy to kick back and watch an International Bowl or a GMAC Bowl or a Holiday Bowl (al-

though that name might not work for Jan. 11). Still, today is John Hancock’s Birthday, National Step in a Puddle and Splash Your Friend Day and International Thank You Day. Surely one of those deserving observances merits a college bowl. The National Step in a Puddle and Splash Your Friend Day Bowl could be played on a muddy field. The John Hancock Bowl could be played on a field with BIG numbers and letters. And even though several of this season’s NFL Monday Night Football offerings proved

dreadfully one-sided, I’d gladly settle for an NFL mismatch tonight. Gosh, the Pro Bowl is scheduled for Jan. 31 in Miami. Too bad the league couldn’t move that game to tonight. On second thought, I’m not that desperate. It is the Pro Bowl. So I’ll just keep my FWWS symptoms to myself and gear for the NFL divisional playoffs, which offer two games on Saturday and two more on Sunday. They’ll be here before we know it.



Lindsey Vonn won a women’s World Cup superG on Sunday, becoming the first American to earn a victory on three straight days and the first woman to do so since 1997. Vonn went down the Krummholz course in 1 minute, 26.69 seconds to beat Anja Paerson of Sweden by 0.53 seconds. Vonn’s 28th World Cup win moved her past Phil Mahre into second on the career victory list for American skiers. Bode Miller leads with 31 victories. The last female skier to win on three consecutive days was Germany’s Katja Seizinger in 1997 at Lake Louise, Alberta. Anna-Marie Proell of Austria and Marie-Therese Nadig of Switzerland also accomplished the feat in the 1970s. Nadia Fanchini of Italy and Martina Schild of Switzerland shared third place. Vonn extended her lead in the overall standings over Maria Riesch of Germany.

TV ratings up for first day of NFL playoffs NEW YORK (AP) — The first day of the NFL playoffs drew the best preliminary television ratings in a decade. The Cowboys’ 34-14 win over the Eagles on NBC on Saturday night earned a 19.6 overnight rating and 32 share, the highest for a first-round game since the 1999 season. The Jets’ 24-14 win over the Bengals drew a 16.9/31, the best for the early game in 10 years. The average for the two games was up 12 percent from last season. Ratings represent the percentage of all households with televisions tuned into a program, and shares represent the percentage of all homes with TVs in use at the time. Overnight ratings measure the nation’s largest markets.

Texas Tech introduces Tuberville as next coach LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — Tommy Tuberville says he’s certain he can take Texas Tech to new heights. “There’s no doubt in my mind we can take it to the next level,” Tuberville said Sunday after being introduced as the new coach at Texas Tech, replacing the fired Mike Leach. The first step for the Red Raiders would be to win the Big 12 South outright, followed by a berth in a BCS bowl game and perhaps a shot at a national title. The former Auburn and Mississippi coach says the road to improvement includes improving on defense and adding a “few new wrinkles” to a pass-happy offense. Tuberville walks into a situation a few weeks after Leach was fired amid allegations he mistreated a player who suffered a concussion. Tuberville took the job Saturday and was expected to sign a contract later this week, officials said. A person close to the contract talks who was not authorized to speak because terms are not final said Tuberville will receive a five-year contract averaging about $1.5 million a year.

KAPALUA, Hawaii (AP) — Geoff Ogilvy has won the season-opening SBS Championship for the second straight year, this time having to rally on the back nine at Kapalua for a oneshot victory over Rory Sabbatini in a tournament that ended just as The High Point Enterprise went to press on Sunday night. Ogilvy took the outright lead with a fairway metal into the par-5 15th green for birdie, and he closed with a 6-under 67 on Sunday on the Plantation Course. He joined fellow Australian Stuart Appleby as the only repeat winners at Kapalua, and he became only the seventh player to win consecutive times in the 58 years of this winners-only tournament. Sabbatini closed with a 10-under 63, missing a 10-foot birdie putt on the final hole. Ogilvy finished at 22-under 270 and moved back into the top 10 in the world.

Pacquiao wraps up deal for Clottey

Manny Pacquiao will fight March 13 at Cowboys Stadium, but not against Floyd Mayweather Jr. Pacquiao promoter Bob Arum said Sunday he has finalized a deal to match Pacquiao against Joshua Clottey in a welterweight bout at the new $1.2 billion stadium. Arum moved swiftly to land a lucrative fight for his Filipino star after his contentious negotiations for a megafight with Mayweather fell apart in a prolonged dispute over blood testing. Arum was in Texas over the weekend to wrap up details for the pay-per-view fight, which will be the first boxing match in the stadium. Top Rank spokesman Lee Samuels said the arena will be configured to seat 50,000 fans for the fight, but the capacity could be raised or lowered.

Arizona punches ticket to New Orleans THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

It took a few extra minutes, but the lineup for the divisional round of the NFL playoffs is set. The Arizona Cardinals beat the Green Bay Packers 51-45 in overtime Sunday on Karlos Dansby’s 17-yard fumble return for a touchdown to round out the field. Earlier, the Baltimore Ravens routed the Patriots 33-14. Arizona (11-6) will face the NFC’s top seed, the Saints (13-3), in New Orleans on Saturday. The reward for Baltimore (10-7) is playing the AFC’s top seed, taking on the Colts (14-2) later Saturday in Indianapolis. The Ravens’ win at New England sends the Jets to San Diego. A Cowboys-Vikings matchup in Minnesota already was set after Dallas won a playoff game for the first time since 1996 on Saturday night.

The Jets, Ravens and Cowboys all made statements this weekend that they’re in top form. The Cardinals seemed poised to do the same when they raced out to a 17-0 first-quarter lead. But the Packers (11-6) scored three fourth-quarter touchdowns to send the game to overtime. “That’s probably one of the best games ever played in the playoffs,” Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt said. The Ravens went ahead for good on the very first play from scrimmage, Ray Rice’s 83-yard touchdown run, and led 24-0 after one quarter. Baltimore forced Tom Brady into three turnovers on the first four possessions for the Patriots (10-7). The Ravens face the AFC South champion Colts in a rematch of their meeting in Baltimore on Nov. 22. Indy won 17-15 in a game in which its defense held the Ravens

to a field goal after it had first-andgoal at the 1 in the fourth quarter. “We’ll play our game against the Colts; it’ll be our will against their will,” Rice said. “It’ll be a fourthquarter game. The Xs and Os will take care of themselves. Playoff football is a little different from regular season. In the regular season, those plays are not being made.” The Cowboys’ 34-14 rout of Philadelphia sent them to the Metrodome for a meeting with Brett Favre and the Vikings (12-4) next Sunday. The fifth-seeded Jets played errorfree ball in frigid Cincinnati to beat the AFC North champion Bengals 24-14 on Saturday afternoon. With their stingy defense and versatile running game, the Jets (10-7) look as formidable as coach Rex Ryan has claimed they are. Their next test comes Sunday against the AFC West champion Chargers (13-3).


Dallas linebacker Bradie James (56) celebrates in the closing minutes of the Cowboys’ 34-14 playoff victory over Philadelphia in Arlington, Texas late Saturday night. The Cowboys advance to Sunday’s divisional playoff game at Minnesota (1 p.m., WGHP, Ch. 8).

Skid stopped, Cowboys look for long playoff run ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) – Their embarrassingly long wait between playoff wins is history, shredded to pieces alongside their December jinx. Now it’s time to consider something a lot more meaningful about the Dallas Cowboys, like how long this playoff run might last. A 34-14 victory over Philadelphia on Saturday night guarantees Dallas will play at least once more, in Minnesota on Sunday. Yet the way the Cowboys dominated the Eagles, and the way they’ve won their last four games, suggest they are the team to beat in the NFC. “If we beat Minnesota, something special can happen here,” team owner Jerry Jones said. “I don’t know that we will, but there’s no reason why we can’t.” Dallas hasn’t trailed during its four-game surge and hasn’t been tied other than 0-0. The Cowboys are doing it with the basic formula

for playoff success: a solid quarterback and a stingy defense. Tony Romo is putting up points early and often without making the careless mistakes that fueled those now-erased hexes. He has six touchdowns and two interceptions over the last four outings, putting up 24.8 points per game. He guided Dallas to a franchise playoff-record 27 points in the second quarter Saturday night, putting the Cowboys well on the way to their NFL-record 33rd playoff win, but first since Dec. 28, 1996. Meanwhile, DeMarcus Ware and the defense are keeping offenses frustrated. Dallas has given up only 31 points the last 16 quarters, just four touchdowns in four games. And three of those games were against New Orleans and Philadelphia, the teams that scored the most and fifth-most points in the NFL this season.

Has McNabb played last game in Philly? PHILADELPHIA (AP) – For all their success together, all those division titles and playoff appearances over the past decade, Andy Reid and Donovan McNabb are measured by this in Philadelphia: No Super Bowl trophy. Strong favorites to make a championship run just eight days ago, the Eagles were quickly eliminated from the playoffs with a 34-14 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in an NFC wild-card game late Saturday night. Now begins an offseason filled with uncertainty. The biggest question is whether McNabb will return. Reid isn’t going anywhere. The winningest coach in franchise history recently signed a threeyear contract extension through 2013. But McNabb has just one year left on his deal, and it’s no longer unimaginable to think the Eagles could be ready to move on without the five-time Pro Bowl quarterback. “I want to be here and don’t want to be anywhere else,” McNabb said after the team’s second loss to the Cowboys in six days sent them home early. McNabb had one of the best seasons in his 11-year career, helping Philadelphia go 11-5 and reach the playoffs for the eighth time since 2000. But he struggled badly in two crucial games, ending the season on a terrible note. The Eagles had won six straight games before they lost 24-0 to the Cowboys last Sunday. That loss cost Philadelphia the NFC East title and a first-round bye.


Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers watches Arizona’s Karlos Dansby (58) run back a fumble 17 yards for the game-winning touchdown in overtime after Rodgers was hit by Michael Adams during Sunday’s NFL wild-card playoff game in Glendale, Ariz. The Cardinals won 51-45 in the highest scoring playoff game in league history.

The Great Dansby Fumble return caps Cards’ epic 51-45 overtime victory GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) – Old master Kurt Warner and playoff newcomer Aaron Rodgers staged a passing duel to rival any the NFL has seen. And it was won in stunning fashion – by the Arizona defense. In overtime. Karlos Dansby’s 17-yard fumble return for a touchdown in overtime gave the Arizona Cardinals a 51-45 victory on Sunday over the Green Bay Packers in the highest-scoring playoff game in NFL history. Rodgers, who started the game with an interception but was marvelous after that, was stripped by Michael Adams. The ball careened off Rodgers’ foot and into the hands

of Dansby, who ran untouched for the score. “He made a sack, the ball went in the air, I just made a play on the ball,” Dansby said. Rodgers flung his helmet to the sideline in disgust as the reigning NFC champion Cardinals (11-6) rushed the field to celebrate. “That’s probably one of the best games ever played in the playoffs,” Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt said. Warner, who improved his playoff record to 9-3, completed 29 of 33 for 379 yards with five touchdowns and no interceptions. Rodgers was 28 of 42 for 422 yards and four TDs. “It’s clearly one of the toughest losses I’ve been a part of,” Green

Bay coach Mike McCarthy said. The previous high for combined points in a postseason game was 95 in Philadelphia’s 58-37 win over Detroit on Dec. 30, 1995. The NFC West champion Cardinals play at New Orleans on Saturday. It was the most points scored and allowed by the Packers (11-6) in their 41-game playoff history. Dansby started and ended the game with big plays. He broke up Rodgers’ game-opening pass and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie intercepted. The next time the Packers got the ball, Dansby stripped Donald Driver and Arizona’s Alan Branch recovered.

Ravens run Patriots out of playoffs FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) – From the very first play, Ray Rice and the running Ravens made the team of the last decade look old, overmatched and, oddly, inept. Rice ran 83 yards for a touchdown with frigid fans still settling into their seats, Tom Brady had three of his four turnovers in the first quarter and Baltimore knocked off New England 33-14 on Sunday in the AFC playoffs. The Ravens (10-7) were only slight underdogs to the team that won three Super Bowls from 2002 through 2005. That myth faded quickly. “One thing we said as an offense is we want to start games fast,” Rice said. “I wanted to be the guy today

to start fast, whether it was a 5-yard run or an 83-yard run. I wanted to be the guy to say this will be a fasttempo game. We want the other team to play catch-up to us.” Now, if they beat Indianapolis next Saturday night, they’ll reach the AFC championship game for the second straight year as a wildcard team. Not even Brady, the NFL Comeback Player of the Year, could overcome his mistakes and the absence of the league’s leading receiver Wes Welker. Brady was 23 of 42 for 154 yards with two touchdowns passing and three interceptions. “Playing the way we did today we’re not going to beat anybody,” Brady said.

But it was hardly a one-man collapse. “All of us that participated in the game are accountable for our performance,” Patriots coach Bill Belichick said, “and I don’t think anybody felt very good about it, players, coaches, anybody.” The Patriots (10-7) tried to rev up the crowd by sending the injured Welker onto the field on crutches for the opening coin toss. It didn’t work. Six minutes into the game the Ravens were ahead 14-0, and the crowd was booing the team that hadn’t lost at home all season. By the end of the first quarter it was 24-0. “Any time we get a lead, it’s hard to come back on our defense,” linebacker Ray Lewis said.

Rondo’s triple-double sparks Celtics’ win THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

TORONTO – Rajon Rondo had 22 points, 13 assists and 10 rebounds for his first triple-double of the season, and Rasheed Wallace scored a season-high 29 points in Boston’s seventh straight win over the Raptors, 114-107 on Sunday. Wallace made five of Boston’s 11 3-pointers. Ray Allen, Paul Pierce and Kendrick Perkins each scored 16 points for Boston, which had lost four of six coming in. Chris Bosh had 31 points and 13 rebounds, and Andrea Bargnani added 23 points for Toronto.

Terrapins roll past Seminoles THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

COLLEGE PARK, Md. – Greivis Vasquez scored 22 points, Eric Hayes had 17, and Maryland held off No. 18 Florida State 77-68 on Sunday night to snap the Seminoles’ seven-game winning streak. The Terrapins (10-4, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) let a 16-point lead dwindle to 48-45 before Vasquez scored nine points in a 14-4 surge that made it 62-49 with 9 minutes left. Then, after the Seminoles closed to 72-66, Vasquez drilled a 3-pointer with 2:23 remaining to all but seal the victory. Vasquez scored 17 points after halftime on 6-of-10 shooting. He has at least 20 points in six straight games. Chris Singleton had 12 points and 14 rebounds for Florida State (13-3, 1-1), which played much of the second half without 6-foot-9 forward Ryan Reid, who injured his left ankle with 19:35 to go and didn’t return until 7:56 remained.

TOP 25 (16) TENNESSEE 76, (1) KANSAS 68 KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – Scotty Hopson had 17 points and No. 16 Tennessee, with a lineup thinned by suspensions, dismissals and injuries, beat No. 1 Kansas 76-68 on Sunday night. Kansas’ Tyshawn Taylor stole the ball and dished it to Brady Morningstar, who hit a 3-pointer with 1:14 left to cut Tennessee’s lead to 71-68. Skylar McBee, one of three walkons who played for Tennessee, answered with his own 3 as the shot clock expired. Sherron Collins, who bailed the Jayhawks (14-1) out of a near loss to Cornell on Wednesday with a career-high 33 points, missed three

shots before time expired. He had 22 points. Kansas committed 16 turnovers, while Tennessee (12-2) had only eight. The loss leaves No. 2 Texas and No. 3 Kentucky as the only unbeatens in Division I. It was the Vols’ first game after coach Bruce Pearl dismissed Tyler Smith on Friday, a week after the senior was arrested on misdemeanor gun and drug charges. Tennessee was also playing without Cameron Tatum, Melvin Goins and Brian Williams, who were arrested Jan. 1 with Smith.

(7) SYRACUSE 82, S. FLORIDA 65 SYRACUSE, N.Y. – Wes Johnson had 19 points and 13 rebounds, his seventh double-double of the season, to lead Syracuse. Syracuse (15-1, 2-1 Big East) used a 16-4 first-half spurt to take control and outscored the Bulls 17-8 over the first 6:09 of the second half to send South Florida (10-5, 0-3) to its 34th Big East road loss in 36 games since joining the conference. Dominique Jones had a seasonhigh 30 points for South Florida. The Bulls again played without 6-foot-10 forward Augustus Gilchrist, who was averaging nearly 18.8 points and 7.4 rebounds before severely spraining his right ankle in an early December practice.

(21) TEMPLE 68, RHODE ISLAND 64 (OT) KINGSTON, R.I. – Juan Fernandez scored 18 points, including a big 3-pointer in overtime, and Temple snapped Rhode Island’s eight-game winning streak. Fernandez, who came averaging 13.1 points, gave the Owls (13-3, 20 Atlantic-10) a 65-61 lead with a 3 with 28 seconds left in overtime. Lavoy Allen added 16 points

and 12 rebounds and Ryan Brooks scored 16 points for Temple, which improved to 6-1 on the road for the season. Delroy James had a season-high 23 points for the Rams (12-2, 0-1), who finished 12 of 26 from the free throw line after entering the game shooting 76.3 percent at the line. Rhode Island’s Keith Cothran made two free throws with 5.1 seconds left in regulation to tie the game at 56.

WASHINGTON – Chris Paul scored eight of his 26 points in the final three minutes Sunday to lead the New Orleans Hornets to their sixth straight win, 115-110 over a Washington Wizards team that has turned its game up a notch since the suspension of Gilbert Arenas. Peja Stojakovic scored 20 points, and Paul added 14 assists for the Hornets, who have won three straight away from home to improve their road record to 5-13 after an abysmal start. Antawn Jamison tied his season-high with 32 points, and Randy Foye had 23 starting in place of Arenas to set a season-high for the second straight game.

HEAT 94, CLIPPERS 84 LOS ANGELES – Chris Kaman had 22 points and 14 rebounds, Baron Davis had 11 points and 14 assists, and the revitalized Clippers won their sixth straight home game. Eric Gordon scored 17 points and Rasual Butler added 13 for the Clippers, who moved within one game of .500. Dwyane Wade scored 24 points for the Heat, who have lost five of seven to drop within one game of .500.

Europe captures Royal Trophy THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

TUCSON, Ariz. – Jamelle Horne scored a career-high 22 points and Arizona handed Washington its worst loss of the season. Washington (10-5, 1-3) lost 67-51 to Arizona State on Friday night, the first time the Huskies were swept on the Arizona trip since 2003. Horne hit a career-high five 3pointers in eight attempts for the Wildcats (8-8, 2-2). Isaiah Thomas had 18 points for Washington, while freshman Abdul Gaddy scored a season-high 13.

CHONBURI, Thailand – Europe pulled out a victory against Asia on Sunday in a tightly fought Royal Trophy match play event, with Henrik Stenson picking up a shot on the final hole to secure an 1 1 8 ⠄2-to-7 ⠄2 victory. Thongchai Jaidee of Thailand came up just short on a 15-foot putt at No. 18 that would have given him a win over Stenson, squared the three-day event at 8-8 and forced a playoff. The Swede then sank a 7footer to square the match and give Europe a victory in the three-day event. “All credits to my team for fighting. We all contributed at least one point this week,� European captain Colin Montgomerie said. “Congratulations to my team. Good start for European golf.� Asia’s non-playing captain Naomichi “Joe� Ozaki captain praised the Europeans, but said he was “pleased� with his team’s performance. He said he remained convinced until the end the two teams would end in a playoff.




(9) DUKE 65, WAKE FOREST 51 DURHAM – Bridgette Mitchell scored 20 points and Jasmine Thomas added 13 as Duke beat Wake Forest 65-51 on Sunday. Duke improved to 14-2 overall and 2-0 in the Atlantic Coast Conference with its 33rd consecutive victory over Wake Forest. Lakevia Boykin led Wake Forest (10-6, 1-1) with 12 points, and Brittany Waters added 10. The Blue Devils went on a 19-0 run late in the first half and led 3515 at the break. During the 81⠄2-minute run, Wake Forest was 0-for-11 from the field and turned the ball over five times.

EAST LONDON, South Africa – Charl Schwartzel of South Africa won the Africa Open by one shot over countryman Thomas Aiken despite bogeying the final hole on Sunday. Schwartzel had a 6-under 67 to finish at 20-under 272 at the East London Golf Club in the tournament co-sanctioned by the Sunshine Tour and the European Tour. It was Schwartzel’s fourth European Tour win after a run of good form that finally produced a victory. Aiken led going into the final round with Trevor Fisher Jr., and was left regretting a double-bogey 6 on the 331-yard fifth. That let Schwartzel open up a lead he never relinquished. He had a three-stroke advantage on the 16th and then had to wait things out as Aiken made a birdie on 15 to get within two shots. In the end, Aiken just missed a 15-foot birdie attempt that would have forced a playoff.

WRESTLING BONEYARD BASH FAYETTEVILLE – Trinity’s Nick Vetell set the school record for career victories as the Bulldogs placed fourth in the 18-team Boneyard Bash that ended late Saturday night. Vetell captured the 152-pound title in the Bash and now has 173 career wins, two more than previous recordholder Shane Shepherd. Joseph Anders of Trinity claimed the 130-pound crown.

Brind’Amour, one of the heroes of Carolina’s Stanley Cup run in 2006, has had a tough season, ranking last in the NHL in plus/minus and going 35 games without a goal. But he scored his second in the last three games, slapping a shot past Leclaire’s outstretched left leg late in the second period. That was enough for Ward, who started his 12th straight game and has allowed seven goals in his last four games. Ward’s best saves came in the

CHARLOTTE – Edison Prep of New Jersey netted a 107-87 victory over Future Academy on Sunday at the Queen City Prep Shootout. Chuckie Becton Jr. led Future Academy with 22 points.

RALEIGH (AP) – Rod Brind’Amour scored the winning goal, and Cam Ward made 31 saves in the Carolina Hurricanes’ 4-1 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Sunday. Tom Kostopoulos, Brett Carson and Eric Staal also scored to help Carolina win consecutive games for the first time since early December. On Tuesday night in Toronto, the Hurricanes will attempt to win three in a row for the first time this season. Chris Kelly scored for Ottawa, and Pascal LeClaire stopped 29

But Ottawa didn’t get on the scoreboard until early in the second, taking a 10 lead when Kelly took a pass from Anton Volchenkov and snapped the puck through Ward’s legs. Carolina answered 40 seconds later when Brandon Sutter broke up the left boards on a 2-on-1. As he neared the left faceoff circle, Sutter backhanded the puck to Kostopoulos, who dove to smack it past Leclaire for his third goal in four games.

tial buyers soon after the tax credit began. The tax credit, which originally offered 10 percent of the price of the home up to $8,000 for first-time buyers, contained some restrictions. For example,

the tax credit only applies for a single buyer whose income does not exceed $125,000 and a family income that does not exceed $225,000. Its expansion in November included a $6,500 tax

credit for previous homeowners. In addition, there are other available programs that Price said most potential buyers don’t know about. “There’s so much out there that it’s even overwhelming for Realtors to understand,” Price said. “Other programs are ongoing while the tax credit is scheduled to end April 30.” To combat the confusion, Price set up space in his office at 1220 N. Main St. for Joann Hollifield, with Trademark Mortgage, to visit his office two to three days a week and answer questions about available programs for potential buyers. One of the programs includes a down payment assistance program from the city of High Point.

Poarch has seen many deal with confusion and misconceptions about the tax credit as well. Along with keeping a credit score in check, the best way to determine what you qualify for is to consult a professional, she said. “Talk to your mortgage lender or a Realtor,” she said. “They can help you answer the questions.” And it’s worth the time and effort for potential buyers to see if they qualify rather than dismissing their chances, she added. “Everything is coming together beautifully for somebody that the tax credit can work for,” she said. “They’ll never have this opportunity again.” | 888-3617

Bull market grows up


An attendee uses Iron Will Innovations’ glove game controller with a video game at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas last week.

New gadgets unveiled at CES raise eyebrows LAS VEGAS (AP) – At the International Consumer Electronics Show last week, 3-D television, electronic readers and little laptops captured much of the attention. There were plenty of other interesting ideas on display, too, from 3-D printing to a wireless cell phone tether. Here are some of the gadgets most worth keeping an eye out for this year: • TV on the iPhone. Qualcomm Inc.’s FLO TV service has been limited by the fact that only a few AT&T Inc. and Verizon Wireless cell phones can receive the signals, which carry about 15 news, sports and entertainment channels. Now, Qualcomm has teamed up with phone accessories maker Mophie to create an external battery pack for the iPhone that doubles as a FLO TV receiver. It’s expected in the first half of the year. No price for the pack was announced; FLO TV service costs $15 per month.


• Game-controller glove. Iron Will Innovations demonstrated a futuristic-looking black-and-silver glove that replaces a keyboard and lets users control games by touching their fingers together instead. Called the Peregrine, it should be in stores for $150 by the summer, though the company is taking pre-orders online for $20 less. • Wireless charging. Last year, Powermat USA showed off a mat that charged gadgets that were placed on top of it – as long as the gadgets were equipped with special covers. This year, Powermat took that a step further by unveiling the Powerpack, a battery that replaces the one that comes with your cell phone and lets you charge your handset by placing it on the mat – no other attachments needed. Powerpacks that are compatible with dozens of handsets are expected to be available for $40 in May.

• 3-D camera. Fujifilm, betting that people will want to shoot their own 3-D movies and photos, is also selling a digital camera with two lenses set apart as if they are human eyes. The screen on the back of the Finepix Real 3D W1 presents, if you squint a little bit, a 3-D image using a glassesfree technology similar to the old 3-D postcards. The 3-D camera is available now for $599, and a 3-D photo frame sells separately for $499. • Mopping robot. It’s the battle of the cleaning robots! The vacuuming Roomba robots will get competition this September from the Mint, a square robot that has a pad for a dry or wet Swiffer-type cleaning cloth. Guided by a beacon that projects an infrared light on the ceiling, the Mint will methodically sweep one room at time. Evolution Robotics Inc. says the price will be around $200 to $250.

NEW YORK (AP) – The stock market rally is aging, and the surest sign is that investors are migrating to stocks that missed out on 2009’s big run. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index is up 69 percent since March 9. The stocks hit hardest during the bear market, including financials and small-caps, led the rally during its first seven months. Now, however, investors are favoring utilities, telecommunication, health care and large-cap stocks. The shift is a natural progression in a bull market and suggests that most of its gains have already been realized. “The easy money is made the first year of a bull market,” says Sam Stovall, chief investment strategist with Standard & Poor’s. Based on historical trends, about a third of a bull market’s gains occur in its first year. In

its second year, it tends to rise about 12 percent. Historically, high-quality stocks have tended to perform well as a bull market matures, having been left behind in the early phase of the rally. In the second year of the last bull market, an index of the most reliable dividend payers, the Dow Jones U.S. Select Dividend index, beat the gains of the broader Dow Jones industrials by 20 percentage points. Channing Smith, comanager of Capital Advisors Growth Fund, said he’s buying stocks like Wal-Mart Stores Inc. and Abbott Laboratories on the cheap. “Many investors think they missed this huge bull market. They did in small-caps and midcaps,” says Smith. “But the market right now is offering investors the opportunity to pick up some of the highest-quality bluechip names.”

China outpaces Germany to be No. 1 exporter BEIJING (AP) – Already the biggest auto market and steel maker, China edged past Germany in 2009 to become the top exporter, yet another sign of its rapid rise and the spread of economic power from West to East.

Total 2009 exports were more than $1.2 trillion, China’s customs agency said Sunday. That was ahead of the 816 billion euros ($1.17 trillion) forecast for Germany by its foreign trade organization, BGA. China’s new status

is mostly symbolic but highlights its growing presence as an industrial power, major buyer of oil, iron ore and other commodities and, increasingly, as an investor and key voice in managing the global economy.

Jet makes emergency landing in Newark

SANTA ANA, Calif. – Both times accused serial killer Rodney Alcala was sentenced to death in the killing of a 12-year-old girl in the 1970s, a court overturned his conviction. So when prosecutors filed charges a third time, he made a startling decision: represent himself. His decision is almost unheard of in a death penalty case and is bound to create a scene when his trial begins today.

NBC ending Leno’s prime-time show PASADENA, Calif. – NBC said Sunday it decided to pull the plug on the Jay Leno experiment when some affiliate stations considered dropping the nightly primetime show, and the network is waiting to hear if Leno and “Tonight” host Conan O’Brien accept its new late-night TV plans. NBC Universal Television Entertainment Chairman Jeff Gaspin said “The Jay Leno Show” at 10 p.m. EST will end with the Feb. 12 beginning of the Winter Olympics. ENTERPRISE NEWS SERVICE REPORTS
