NEW CHAPEL: Thomasville discusses cemetery upgrade. 1B

can only do these things because of your generosity.” Ziegler reported that more than 400 Red Cross workers from around the world are working with thousands of international disaster relief workers, and the organization is not recruiting volunteers to go to Haiti because of the dangerous situations, he said. Many organizations have collected non-perishable goods to send to the Third World country, but Ziegler said the best way to contribute to relief efforts still is through monetary donations. “Donated items actually cost more to handle than it is to purchase new items from national suppliers, in bulk, already pallet-

ized and delivered directly to our military partners for shipment by air or sea,” he said. The American Red Cross, as well as other organizations such as World Relief, accept monetary donations through their Web sites. High Point University students will join the growing number of local groups that have held fundraisers for Haiti relief efforts when they hold a benefit concert at 7 tonight in the Hayworth Fine Arts Center. The event is open to the public, and a student who has Haitian relatives unaccounted for in the country will speak at the event.

HIGH POINT – A trial date has been set in August for the lawsuit between furniture showroom owner Merchandise Mart Properties Inc. and its former top executive in High Point, Tom Mitchell. The case is scheduled to come to trial Aug. 2 in

Merchandise Mart Properties sued Tom Mitchell last July for breach of contract and damages. Guilford County Superior Court unless the two sides work out an agreement in mediation, according to documents in the case file. An order for mediation is required in this type of civil case, said High Point attorney Sam Lasine, who represents Mitchell. “It’s up to the parties to schedule a mediation conference. It’s a settlement conference with a neutral third party. We’ve agreed on a mediator. It’ll probably be in the May time frame,” Lasine said Tuesday.

America Works contract passes Company will help inmates train for and find jobs BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – High Point City Council approved a contract at its meeting Tuesday night for a project designed to further the crime reduction efforts of the High Point Police Department. Council members voted 7-3 in favor of an ordinance that will allow $100,000 for the America Works Project. It also executed an agreement between the city and America Works of North Carolina to work with the High Point Police Department and High Point Community Against Violence by providing job training for offenders upon completion of their sentences. Mayor Becky Smothers said the funds would come from the police department, which has pledged to make cuts in other areas to

fund the program. Officials have said a weak link in their crime reduction efforts lies with repeat offenders. This program will provide 33 chronic offenders with 40 hours of job training, job placement with local employers and retention services for 90 days. Councilman Mike Pugh said he supported the idea of the project but could not vote in favor of it in a time when High Point’s unemployment rate remained high. “When we have an unemployment rate around 10 percent ... I don’t want to send the impression that (the unemployed) are being shorthanded,” Pugh said. “I don’t want them to think they’re better off as a felon.” Smothers said she supported the project because the council also was supporting other areas of job development for area residents.


Council members Bernita Sims and Foster Douglas also voted against the project, citing similar reasons as Pugh for their opposition. Council members also received an update on the city’s water distribution services after 40 waterline breaks have occurred since Dec. 23 due to the cold weather. Chris Thompson, public services director, said the city had lost 3 million gallons of water from the breaks but still was meeting daily demands of distribution. He said needed repairs to the system would cost less than $500,000 and should be completed within 20-30 days. “We want the public to continue to look for leaks and just not waste their water at this time,” Thompson said. | 888-3617

Lawsuit kept under wraps due to ‘confidential’ information Elsewhere...



HIGH POINT – Merchandise Mart Properties Inc. and former executive Tom Mitchell have agreed to terms that would keep certain business information confidential during their civil case in Guilford County Superior Court. Last summer, Merchandise Mart Properties sued Mitchell, who served as

an executive with the company in High Point for 10 years, for breach of contract and damages. Merchandise Mart Properties, the second-largest showroom owner at the High Point Market, claims Mitchell has lured away tenants in his current job as president of the International Home Furnishings Center. Mitchell has denied the accusations of any wrongdoing, arguing he’s used his extensive experience in the home furnishings industry to market space at IHFC, the largest show-

room owner at market. Mitchell became the top executive at IHFC in 2008. A confidentiality agreement and protective order signed by Judge Edwin G. Wilson earlier this month will protect proprietary information from public disclosure as the case progresses. Attorneys for both parties “acknowledge that the parties may seek to obtain through discovery ... certain information, documents and things which the opposing party may consider to be confidential com-

mercial, business, financial or proprietary information,” according to the court order. It’s not unusual for a confidentiality agreement and protective order to be issued in business civil cases, said Michael Crowell, attorney with the N.C. School of Government in Chapel Hill. State public record laws allow exemptions to prevent the public release of proprietary business information, Crowell said. | 888-3528


Defendant denies breaching contract FROM PAGE 1

erties, concurred the mediation should take place around May. Merchandise Mart Properties, the secondlargest showroom operator for the High Point Market, sued Mitchell last July for breach of contract and damages. Mitchell now serves as

president of the International Home Furnishings Center, the largest showroom owner at market. Merchandise Mart Properties claims Mitchell improperly used proprietary information and broke his employment contract by

luring away its tenants to IHFC. Mitchell, who has denied the accusations, left Merchandise Mart Properties in 2008 to become top executive at IHFC, which isn’t named as a defendant in Merchandise Mart Properties’ legal action. Mitchell contends he’s

engaged in legitimate competition with Merchandise Mart Properties since joining the IHFC and didn’t take advantage of confidential information he was exposed to while with his former employer.

Dispute leads to stabbing outside courthouse ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

DAVIDSON COUNTY – An altercation outside of the Davidson County Courthouse in Thomasville last week left one woman with several lacerations and another with charges of assault with a deadly weapon. At 9:15 a.m. Thursday, deputies were alerted to an argument at the courthouse involving Gakeshia A. Williams and another female. Deputies said both women, who were in

court for an ongoing dispute, had exited the courtroom and Williams attacked the victim with a handmade, wooden, pointed weapon. Deputies were able to intervene and subdue Williams, but the victim sustained several lacerations to her face and neck area. Williams, 34, of 209 Culbreth Ave., was charged with felony assault with a deadly weapon serious injury, misdemeanor commu-

nicating threats and misdemeanor disorderly conduct. She was placed in the Davidson County Jail under a $200,000 secured bond. Williams’ court date is set for Feb. 22. In an unrelated case, Jason Ryan Carpenter, 32, of 142 Gatewood Drive, Linwood, was charged with statutory rape, indecent liberties with a child and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. He was placed in the Da-

vidson County Jail under a $125,000 secured bond. Mitchell’s first court appearance is set for March 1. Earlier this month, deputies received a report in regard to an alleged sexual assault of a 15-year-old female. Davidson County detectives allege between Dec. 18-31, 2009, Mitchell committed acts of sexual assault against the female, as well as supplying the victim with marijuana before the assault occurred.

BUCHAREST, Romania (AP) – In the latest bizarre claim to come out of Romania’s presidential race last year, the loser and his wife have claimed he was subject to attacks of negative energy by aides of President Traian Basescu during a crucial debate. Former Foreign Minister Mircea Geoana who lost the Dec. 6 runoff, claimed Basescu ordered the attacks against him, Mediafax

---news agency reported Monday. “During the Dec. 3 debate ... people who were working for Basescu in this domain were present to the right of the camera. ... I saw them and I know who they are,” Geoana told Antena 3 television. Geoana fared badly in parts of the debate. His wife Mihaela Geoana said Saturday her husband “was very badly attacked, he couldn’t con-

centrate.” Former President Ion Iliescu dismissed the allegations as “discussions for naive people, for uneducated people,” according to Monday’s edition of the daily Gandul. Geoana aide Viorel Hrebenciuc has previously alleged there was a “violet flame” conspiracy during the campaign. He said Basescu dressed in purple on Thursdays to increase his chance of victory.

Quake creates thousands of orphans PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) – Jean Peterson Estime was outside playing soccer when his home pancaked in last week’s earthquake and killed his parents and five sisters. Now he sleeps with thousands in a Port-auPrince park and forages in rubble for food and goods he can sell to survive. “I’m trying to get a little job so I can take care of myself,� he says, attempting to look brave even as he shuffles his dirty feet in too-big sandals. What the 13-year-old really wants is someone to take him in.

Two US soldiers killed by roadside bomb KABUL – Two U.S. service members were killed by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan on Tuesday, a day after a brazen Taliban attack on the capital showed militants are stepping up their fight. The southern Taliban heartland has seen intense fighting and is expected to be the destination for most of the 30,000 U.S. troops being sent by President Barack Obama.

Tens of thousands of children have been orphaned by the quake, aid groups say – so many that officials won’t venture a number. With buildings destroyed and growing chaos in the capital, they say many children are like Jean – living alone on the streets. “Without doubt, most of them are in the open,� said Elizabeth Rodgers, of the Britain-based international orphan group SOS Children.

BAGHDAD – Nearly 50,000 Sunni fighters who sided with American forces against al-Qaida and other militants in Iraq are now in government jobs, a top official said Tuesday in an attempt to soothe fears they would be neglected by the country’s Shiite leaders. The announcement was a reminder that sectarian tensions remain raw and risk being stoked further as parliamentary elections approach.

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) – U.S. troops landed on the lawn of Haiti’s shattered presidential palace to the cheers of quake victims on Tuesday, and the U.N. said it would throw more police and soldiers into the sluggish global effort to aid the devastated country. The U.N. forces are aimed at quelling the outbursts of violence that have slowed distribution of supplies, leaving many Haitians still without help a week after the magnitude-7.0 quake killed an estimated 200,000 people. Looters were rampaging through part of downtown Port-au-Prince even as the Security Council voted to add 2,000 troops to the 7,000 military peacekeepers already in the country as well as 1,500 more police to the 2,100-strong international force. Meanwhile, thousands are struggling to board buses to flee hunger and violence in the shattered capital, hoping that food will be easier to find in the countryside.

LEONARD PITTS: One wonders if conservative spokemen have consciences. TOMORROW

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


Join effort for state, feds to honor word In late summer 2008, there were two news stories that dominated every news media. The first was that oil prices were at all-time highs. We were all paying well over $3.50 for a gallon of gas. The financial burden on business and personal budgets were profound. Jobs and opportunities for economic growth were stifled. The second was about state and federal elections. Every state and federal candidate said we needed to explore for energy now and promised if elected to drill for more domestic energy resources. North Carolina and the entire east coast was said to have tremendous potential for off shore oil and natural gas reserves. Many news stories that discussed the potentials of drilling for energy and the revenues that would be generated could be used to reduce our taxes and solve many of our state’s budget shortfalls. Since the late summer of 2008, oil prices have moderated some and the talk of exploring our offshore areas for more domestic



energy have gone silent. We are still left with a state budget that has the need for more revenue sources. Why are we not exploring for more domestic energy resources and using the revenue generated to offset our state taxes? I continue to watch for action. I heard all the political promises and the candidate’s call for us to vote for them. They promised that they would make domestic energy a top priority. We need to find more domestic energy resources. We need more jobs. We need lower cost energy to meet the ever growing demand of the United States and its citizens. Join me in reminding those elected in 2008 at state and federal levels of their promises to find more domestic energy resources and reduce our dependence on foreign sources. LATIMER ALEXANDER High Point City Council member High Point

One day, every Christian will live forever in Heaven Recently Pat Robertson made the claim that God brought this terrible earthquake on the nation of Haiti as a result of a pact they made with the Devil some years earlier. No doubt many evangelicals believe that God also responded this way to the sin city of New Orleans when Hurricane Katrina landed with such great destruction a few years ago. While we never doubt that God is displeased with sin, and that all sin one day will be judged, it is a very debatable whether God uses hurricanes, tornados, earthquakes or any other natural catastrophes to punish people and nations. The Bible tells us that God is very patient with us (Romans

15:5) and that it is not His desire that any of us should experience death unless we have repented and are ready for Heaven (2 Peter 3:9). So what about hurricanes, tornados, earthquakes, blizzards, or even auto accidents, cancers or other diseases? God has chosen to let us live in a dangerous world in order to keep our immortality before us. Just like no atheists die in fox holes, so when we all experience pain and suffering it is a constant reminder that we will not live forever but will be somewhere forever. It is a reminder that someone exists besides us. Pain and suffering on earth is a reminder that knowing Christ is the most important thing in the world, and that one day every Christian will live forever in Heaven where pain and suffering will be gone forever. THE REV. SID STEWART Trinity



Look forward to activity at Clara Cox


here’s good news and not-so-good news about the effort to get the Clara Cox Homes project under way. The good news, according to Dionne Nelson, vice president for Crosland, the Charlotte-based developer working with the High Point Housing Authority, is that a new investor has been secured for the project. The authority reportedly is proceeding with the new investor for the first two phases of the planned $28 million three-phased effort to create 210 mutilfamily rental units and 19 single-family homes on the 19.4-acre site at 621 E. Grimes Ave. Authority officials hope construction can begin before June. The Clara Cox site was named for a local Quaker minister when some 250 apartments were opened in 1942. The complex got quite a face-lift and all lead paint was removed from the units in 1984. The complex was demolished about five years ago. The not-so-good news is that the investor desires to remain anonymous until the deal closes, which isn’t expected until spring. Still, any movement toward fulfilment of the dream to provide new housing units is encouraging, especially in this economic climate. We implore Housing Authority officials to keep the pressure on to get this project under way before summer, to get it completed with quality construction, to get people residing in those units as possible, and then ensuring maintenance of the complex. This is one more milestone on the path to provide affordable housing for everyone in High Point.

We’ll have to wait ’til spring to see who investor is.

Change has been significant for some African-Americans


ne year later. One year after that icy Washington day when Aretha Franklin sang and John Roberts muffed his lines and Barack Obama raised his hand and swore the oath that made him president of the United States, it turns out something fundamental has changed. It is not the economy, which still struggles toward daylight. It is not the partisan divide, which still gapes like canyons. It is not the wars, which grind ceaselessly on. No, what has changed is us – specifically, the African-American cohort of us. According to a new poll conducted late last year by the Pew Research Center, hope is on the rise in black communities. Thirty-nine percent of blacks say blacks are better off now than they were five years ago. That’s nearly double the 20 percent who felt that way just two years before. And a majority – 53 percent – believe their lives will be better still in the future, up nine percentage points since 2007. For the last year, people have been asking me whether I thought the election of Barack Obama would materially change things in African America, whether it would inspire a renaissance of achievement and hope. I was always dubious. I always said it was a little simplistic to believe that. I always said he was only one man and that his election, as singular an event as it was, had limited power to re-shape cynicism as deep-rooted and intransigent as that which grips black people. And apparently, I was wrong. The proof is in the numbers, especially when they are viewed in context. After all, blacks are still much more likely than whites to see and decry discrimination against them, still much more likely than whites to say the country needs to do more to fulfill its founding promise of equality and justice for all, still much more likely than whites to view law enforcement with deep and abiding cynicism. And yet, on measure after measure – standard of living, satisfaction with their own communities, assessment of relations between blacks and whites – Pew finds the numbers spiking

since the rise of Obama. He has changed our assessment of the possible. For the first time in a long time, optimism grows among us. For a people whose views have so often been (justifiably) dour and bleak, that is bracing news. And the timing of it OPINION is fitting, coming as we mark both Obama’s first year in Leonard office and the 24th commemoPitts ration of the holiday honoring ■■■ Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. For all the difficulties of the journey, for all the challenges that lie yet ahead, we find that we have moved with a steadiness from the grotesque perversion of America in which King lived and died, toward the gleaming redemption of America for which he fought and of which he famously dreamed. From “Whites Only” signs, soldiers guarding public schools, and torchlight glinting off swinging truncheons, to a son of Kenya and Kansas raising his hand and vowing to preserve, protect and defend the constitution of the United States. And you might wonder of what value optimism might have been in bridging that distance, what value it might have for bridging the distance yet to go. Optimism is, after all, just a feeling, ephemeral and insubstantial. But I submit that it is more. Optimism is fuel for the engine, wind for the wings, the single indispensable element in getting from here to there. So it is good to see it flowering once again in African-American communities, flowering as it has not in too many years.

Lettuce-loving latte ‘freaks’ can make up their own minds

One story out of Haiti I

have written a few times about the charity, Mercy & Sharing, which has been working exclusively in Haiti for over 15 years. Susie Krabacher and her husband, Joe an attorney in Colorado, have done amazing work for the children in Haiti. Mercy & Sharing, www. has established schools, orphanages, a hospital, medical clinics and feeding centers despite corruption, threats of violence and a lack of infrastructure. Most of their work is centered in or around Port-au-Prince. They have been responsible for saving thousands of children in Haiti from disease, poverty, violence and the black market. However, the earthquake that devastated the area is threatening the well-being of their children as well as everyone on staff. What follows is an account sent to me by Joe Krabacher of their current conditions as of Sunday morning. It is a disturbing account of the nightmare that has descended on the poorest country in the Western hemisphere that is only 600 miles from the coast of Florida. Susie drove into Port-auPrince with a translator, security, satellite phones, medical supplies and new four wheel drives hoping that their children were spared the devastation. “Susie, Jeff, Bill, Jacques and two Haitian police (as security), crossed the border into Haiti and arrived at the Williamson project this afternoon,� wrote Joe. “Unfortunately, things are not as we had hoped. Typically we have approximately 85 employees working eight-hour shifts around-the-clock. There were only a handful of employees on site trying to take care of hundreds of children. They are trying to stabilize the situation in Williamson before nightfall. “Many of the children have not had water or food in two days; the handicapped children have bed sores. There is no diesel fuel to run the generators, which power the water pumps,

They are getting water and food for the OPINION children this evening and Martha R. then searching Carr for a place to stay that might have internet or other communications. “We now have reports that the children of the abandoned baby unit have been without food and water for two days. They are reportedly alive but the morgue is piling up with hundreds of bodies, and the morgue is located right next to the abandoned baby unit. “The office building and hospital in Port-au-Prince have been completely demolished. We have lost all of our paperwork and records, which are lying in the debris and blowing around the streets. The project has been completely looted. “The team is traveling to Port-au-Prince tomorrow to go to the Cazeau orphanage. We have reports that Cazeau is not safe because the walls collapsed, there are men with machetes robbing anyone with anything or value, and the people in the neighborhood have stormed the building, overpowered the guard and have taken up occupancy in


what is left of the buildings on that property. We intend to remove all the remaining children from Cazeau and take them to Williamson Wednesday. “Madame Chenet, (a staff member) is very traumatized. She has been living in her car and because she has experienced the devastation, she is likely in shock. Dr. Rodriquez lost four family members, Dr. Algenor lost his brother. Our accountant lost his two brothers. Madame Chenet said it is total devastation around her. “Above all, pray fervently for the US team and the children, as well as the staff, our medical doctors and medical personnel.� They are in urgent need of cash donations and I’ve seen firsthand the love and support of my readers for others.

At least 600,000 cribs recalled after child death WASHINGTON (AP) – A Barbados-based company on Tuesday recalled about 635,000 cribs sold by Kmart, Sears, Wal-Mart and other stores after the death of a 6-month-old boy and multiple reports of injuries. The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the recall of 20 models of Dorel Asia cribs with both drop sides and fixed front rails. Some of the Chineseand Vietnamese-made cribs were recalled because their drop sides can detach, creating a space where a child can be

trapped and suffocate or strangle. A 6-month-old boy from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, strangled after getting trapped in the crib when the dropside hardware broke. His parents were using the crib after trying to repair it themselves. A statement from Dorel describes the circumstances leading to this death as “highly unusual,� because the crib was known to be broken and had been held together with duct tape, according to investigators of the incident.

Storm winds knock over car, trees in California LOS ANGELES (AP) – Another storm has roared into Southern California, bringing lightning, street flooding and gusty winds that flipped over a car, blew out windows and closed piers.

Democratic fingerpointing began more than a week ago as polls started showing a tight race, with the White House accusing Coakley of a poor campaign and the Coakley camp laying some of the blame on the administration. Obama flew to Boston for last-ditch personal campaigning on Sunday.

Thomasville OKs funds for cemetery chapel BY DARRICK IGNASIAK ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

THOMASVILLE – Construction of an open-air chapel at Thomasville City Cemetery was given the goahead Tuesday night by the Thomasville City Council. Last week, City Manager Kelly Craver said action from the City Council would bring “the plans and proposal for the construction, as well as the movement of some moneys from other capital line items in the cemetery fund to fund the construction.” The city manager also said the cost of the project is about $25,000, with $5,000 coming from the city’s cemetery budget.

Councilman David Yemm made the motion, which was seconded by Jackie Jackson, to appropriate the funds toward the construction Tuesday night. Thomasville officials have said the City Council approved the chapel project as a concept in 2000, allowing cemetery caretaker Nat Walker to start raising funds to build the chapel.

In other business, the City Council approved a rezoning request for applicant Larry Tyndall, owner of 815 Cox Ave. The City Council approved Tyndall’s request to rezone his property from R-10 to R-8.

Primary push Grice, Hege urge voters to switch parties BY DARRICK IGNASIAK ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

DAVIDSON COUNTY – Months before residents head to the polls to decide who will represent the Republican Party in the November election for Davidson County sheriff, candidates Gerald Hege and incumbent David Grice are urging many Democrats switch over to unaffiliated or Republican so they can get a boost in the May primary. As of Thursday, 440 more residents have registered as unaffiliated when compared to last January, according to the Davidson County Board of Elections office. Residents can change their party affiliation until 5 p.m. April 9 to vote in the May 4 primary, said Ruth Huneycutt, director of the Davidson County Board of Elections. “I think what’s sparking the interest is that a lot of Democrats want to help me out to keep me in office,” said David Grice, the incumbent sheriff of Davidson County. “I’m sure (Hege is) saying the same thing that a lot of Democrats want to put him in office.”

In the GOP primary, only Republicans and those who are unaffiliated can vote for Grice, Hege and Terry Price, who announced last year their intentions to run for sheriff. Candidate filing begins Feb. 8 and ends Feb. 26. Hege, who sparked interest in the sheriff race when he announced his candidacy in November, said he has helped register between 150 to 200 people as unaffiliated. State law does allow candidates to hand out registration forms, but county board of elections offices must verify and process any changes. “We have seen an increase in unaffiliated,” Hege said. “Normally, I would push Republican Party on these things because I’ve been known for that in the past ... A lot of people just won’t go that extra step, especially African-Americans, to go to being Republican, but they will go unaffiliated. That’s kind of what we have been pushing.” Ralph Burroughs, a volunteer with the Price campaign, said he thought “it was a wonderful thing” that Grice and Hege are helping residents change their party affiliation. Burroughs said he didn’t know of the Price campaign participating in efforts to change party affiliations.

HIGH POINT – Rachel Gray, the second woman elected to the High Point City Council and a former state senator and longtime civic leader, died Tuesday. She was 79. Gray’s service to her adopted city spanned decades. The Salisbury native relocated to High Point and met her future husband, High Point businessman Bill Gray, when they were teenagers. They married in 1950 while Gray was attending Catawba College in Salisbury. Her husband died 10 years ago. Gray first became active in High Point through

Former politician, civic leader Rachel Gray dies BY PAUL B. JOHNSON ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER



groups such as the Junior League, local school PTAs and city beautification committees. In the 1960s, Gray was involved in a campaign to plant and preserve trees across High Point. Gray, a Democrat, first entered electoral politics in 1973, winning a seat on the City Council in her first bid for public office. She served as mayor pro tem, the second-highest city office. In 1976, Gray ran for state Senate, again winning on her first try. She resigned her council seat on Dec. 16, 1976, to transition into the N.C. General Assembly and held her state Senate seat through 1984. One of her sons, Frank Gray, cur-

rently serves on the Jamestown Town Council. Friends remember Gray as a tireless advocate for High Point and Guilford County and a supporter of just causes. Gray virtually on her own created awareness that led to the establishment of the Mental Health Association in High Point, said Executive Director Ellen Cochran. Gray served as president of the first association board of directors in 1967, said Cochran, a longtime friend of Gray. “What I admired about Rachel is that when she saw something that needed to be done she took the reins and made it happen,” Cochran said.

Gray was an advocate and board member for the Washington Drive Resource and Enrichment Center in the early 1990s shortly after it was established, said center founder Lois Powell. “She was a wonderful, dedicated person,” Powell said. Former High Point Mayor Roy Culler said Gray “always put High Point first.” After she departed the council, Gray would help the city with matters of concern at the General Assembly throughout her legislative career, Culler said. | 888-3528

RALEIGH (AP) – North Carolina’s one-time windfall from corporate taxpayers has cancelled out for now otherwise poor revenue collections due to the weak economy. The Legislature’s top economist says the state has taken in $30 million more than projected to

cover the state’s $19 billion budget for the first half of the fiscal year, through Dec. 31. Barry Boardman said the state is in the black for now because the Revenue Department collected $277 million more than expected by resolving disputes with companies over back

taxes. The extra funds hide otherwise tepid sales and income tax collections. Boardman said Tuesday that data so far show sales taxes didn’t rebound during the holidays. Boardman also said a shortfall could return if the economy fails to turn the corner soon.

Patronizing professor needs a lesson in social graces


ear Abby: I have always been a curious and motivated person. Because of it, I pursued higher education and became a college professor. Most of my siblings have also gone to college. However, their significant others have varying levels of education. I like to think of myself as a nice person, but my siblings have let me know that when I converse with their partners, I often come across as patronizing. Do these partners need to be less sensitive, or do I need to be more so? – The Good Professor Dear Prof: If only one of your siblings had told you that you often come across as patronizing, I’d say his or her partner might be overly sensitive. However, because more than one has said it, it’s time for a self-check. Book smarts are an undeniable asset, but sensitivity to others can be even more important. If you talk down to people, no matter how “smart� you are, eventually they will run away from you. Do you feel compelled to “correct� those whom you know to have less education than you? Do you speak in polysyllables when a few simple

words will do? If the answers to these questions are affirmative, you need to be more soADVICE cially sensitive when Dear you’re with Abby your family ■■■ – and possibly when you’re in the classroom as well. Dear Abby: My parents divorced when my older brother and I were small. Mom remarried, and I was adopted by the wonderful man who raised me as his beloved daughter. I had limited contact with my biological father, “Nate,� which seemed to please everyone. After my adopted dad passed, Nate came back into my life. I have not seen much of him but he was present at my second marriage five years ago, traveling across country to be there. Last month he called to tell me he has been diagnosed with terminal cancer and has named me as his heir since my older brother is deceased. As a birthday gift, I presented him with a box from a company that does genome sequencing. It allows people to see their

DNA and learn about their ancestry as well as any health-related issues. I enjoyed learning about genetics and thought Nate would, too. Imagine how stunned I was when I learned that Nate is NOT my father. The company has assured me there is little chance the test is wrong, and they are certain we are not related. I am close to my mother and horrified that she kept this secret from me for more than 50 years. I don’t want anyone to be hurt, but I need the truth. What do I do? – Questioning My DNA in S.F.

Every medicine doesn’t work for everybody


ear Dr. Donohue: I have never written to you before, but I have never seen much from you about Forteo. I took it for a year for osteoporosis. After a year, I had a repeat DEXA test. There was no improvement, and my hipbones were worse off. I spent more than $7,000 for the medicine. I feel like I have been taken, since it did me no good. I would like your opinion on Forteo and why it didn’t help me. They won’t reimburse me for any of the money I spent. – Anon.



Forteo (teriparatide) is a lab-made replica of parathyroid hormone. We have four parathyroid glands, small glands glued to the back of the thyroid gland. If you wrap your hand around your lower neck, you’re wrapping it around your thyroid and parathyroid glands. Parathyroid hormone regulates the body levels of calcium and phosphate. It boosts blood calcium by preventing calcium loss in the urine. It increases the digestive tract’s absorption of calcium. It also stimulates new bone formation. For these reasons, Forteo is an approved osteoporosis treatment. Why didn’t it work for you? I have to resort to platitudes. Not every medicine works for every patient. Humans don’t respond in identical ways. Were you taking calcium and vitamin D when you were on Forteo? It needs both to work well. I can














understand your disappointment and your anger. I can’t come up with any better HEALTH explanation, and I Dr. Paul admit mine Donohue is not all ■■■ that good. Other osteoporosis medicines exist, and they are not so expensive. They are the bisphosphonates. Perhaps your doctor will have you take one of them. Dear Dr. Donohue: Each year we are urged to have yet another immunization – this year, two flu shots. What effect do these immunizations have on our natural immune system? I am thinking in terms of the super bugs that have evolved due to the overuse of antibiotics. – C.B. Vaccinations don’t promote the rise of super bugs. They benefit our immune systems. They teach it to recognize and be prepared for germ invaders. After the vaccine has been given, the immune system can pounce on the germ and eradicate it. One way it does so is the production of antibodies, its arsenal of ammunition against bacteria and viruses. Antibodies home in on the germ and render it powerless to cause illness. Antibiotics work in an

entirely different way. They mess up a germ’s metabolic and reproductive functions. Germs learn how to dodge those antibiotic actions and become resistant to the drug. Dear Dr. Donohue: What is the correct way to take a person’s blood pressure? In many doctor’s offices, I have had my arm grabbed and supported by the person taking my pressure. This forces me to tense my arm. Then they pump the cuff so high that it hurts. All this raises my pressure. – V.S. The protocol for taking blood pressure goes like this. The patient should not have smoked or taken caffeine in the previous half-hour. He or she should be sitting comfortably in a chair for at least five minutes. The arm should be supported, preferably resting on something like a desk. The blood-pressure taker inflates the cuff only to the point where it obliterates the pulse at the wrist. The cuff is slowly deflated so the taker can identify both the systolic and diastolic pressures. In the best of all worlds, pressure should be recorded in both arms. DR. DONOHUE regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible. Readers may write him or request an order form of available health newsletters at P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475

Robert “Joe� Halderman leaves Manhattan criminal court on Tuesday in New York.

Judge refuses to toss Letterman extortion case

Source: O’Brien staff is sticking point in talks LOS ANGELES (AP) – The sticking point in Conan O’Brien’s exit negotiations with NBC may involve his staff, not Triumph the Insult Comic Dog. A person close to the talks said Tuesday O’Brien is intent on guaranteeing severance deals for his “Tonight Show� staff and crew. The issue of whether NBC retains rights to O’Brien comedy bits including Triumph or Pimpbot 5000 was undecided Tuesday but not a key issue for O’Brien, the person said.

derman, the judge put the case on a path toward trial, which could bring testimony from the “Late Show� host about events in his private life that have been pushed into public view. The case spurred Letterman to tell viewers in October that he had slept with women on his staff. Prosecutors say that Halderman

demanded $2 million to keep quiet about the talk-show host’s affairs. Halderman says that he was just offering Letterman a chance to buy – and keep private – a thinly veiled screenplay about Letterman’s life. Halderman, 52, a producer for CBS’ “48 Hours Mystery,� could face up to 15 years in prison if convicted.

Dennis Hopper files for divorce LOS ANGELES (AP) – Dennis Hopper, battling prostate cancer, wants out of his marriage. The actor-director filed for divorce Thursday in Los Angeles, citing irreconcilable differences with Victoria Duffy, his

Packed with healthy and filling ingredients, Simmered Mediterranean Vegetables and Tuna will keep the munchies away until the next meal.

Go Mediterranean Proper bulk in diet helps in losing weight BY JIM ROMANOFF FOR THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


ating less isn’t the only way to weigh less. While starving yourself can help you shed pounds, it isn’t healthy and will only leave you with stronger cravings that you’re more likely to cave in on than if you had eaten a moderate, balanced and healthy diet. The key to losing weight and staying satisfied is to eat foods that are low in calories but high in bulk and fiber, such as vegetables, whole grains (such as pasta and rice) and low-fat soups. Add a reasonable amount of healthier fats, such as olive and nut oils, a bit of fish or other lean protein, and a modest amount of cheese and you have the backbone of the Mediterranean diet. It’s not just immensely satisfying, it’s also incredibly healthy. The recipe for Simmered Mediterranean Vegetables and Tuna is and excellent example of these tasty principals. Eggplant, tomatoes and zucchini are sauteed in olive oil, then simmered until tender. Chunk light tuna, chopped olives, capers and a small amount of feta cheese are stirred in at the end, then the whole stew is served over whole-grain pasta. The dish by itself is a complete meal, but adding a salad never hurts.

Simmered Mediterranean Vegetables and Tuna Start to finish: 35 minutes (20 minutes active) Servings: 4 28-ounce can diced fire-roasted tomatoes 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil 4 cloves garlic, minced 1 small eggplant (3/4 pound), peeled and cut into sticks 1/2-inch thick and 2-inches long 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper 1 small zucchini, cut into sticks 1/2-inch thick and 2-inches long 8 ounces whole-grain bow tie or other small pasta 6-ounce can water-packed chunk light tuna, drained and flaked 1/4 cup pitted Kalamata olives, chopped 1/4 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley 1 tablespoon capers, rinsed 4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Meanwhile, drain the tomatoes, reserving 1 cup of juice. Set aside.

In a large nonstick skillet over high, heat the oil. Add the garlic and eggplant and saute until the garlic is golden, about 1 minute. Reduce heat to medium and stir in the salt and pepper. Cover the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, until the eggplant is tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in the zucchini, tomatoes and juice. Bring the mixture to a simmer, cover the pan and cook until the zucchini is tender, about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, cook the pasta in the boiling water according to package instructions. Drain well and transfer to a large serving bowl. Stir the tuna, olives, parsley and capers into the vegetable mixture. Cook, stirring until heated through. Gently stir in the feta cheese. Spoon the mixture over the pasta.

Wednesday, Jan. 20, 2010 CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Rob Bourdon, 31; Gary Barlow, 39; Stacey Dash, 44; Bill Maher, 54 HAPPY BIRTHDAY: The sky is the limit if you use your resources wisely and you aren’t afraid to do things a little differently. Your determination and dedication will far exceed what anyone else offers. By sticking to your game plan, you will show everyone around you that you are the best one for the job. Your numbers are 7, 13, 20, 24, 33, 37, 43 ARIES (March 21-April 19): You have to put more time and effort into enjoying life and less into worrying about the things you cannot change. Love will help give you the strength and courage to surpass the people who have hurt you personally or professionally. ★★★ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Taking on problems that don’t belong to you is pointless. Give more time and effort to your own accomplishments. A personal problem will leave you feeling confused. Make whatever adjustments are necessary. ★★★ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t let someone’s change of plans cause you to alter what you intend to do. An offer being made will not be as good as it first appears. Get the lowdown on what’s actually expected of you before you make a commitment. ★★ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Let everyone know where you stand so you can get matters resolved and move on to bigger and better things. Avoid taking on a burden or responsibility that will cause you to miss out on a chance of a lifetime. ★★ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You may be tempted to travel for love or money but, in the end, it will be a waste of your time. Put your time into constructive, professional pursuits. Don’t limit the possibilities by making poor choices. ★★★★★ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t let your emotions get in the way of what needs to be done. You have plenty of options that can lead to some interesting and fruitful endeavors if you keep a sound mind and realistic outlook. Social networking will pay off. ★★★ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): An emotional matter will bring to the surface issues that need to be addressed. A romantic relationship can help you determine how you want to handle the personal and professional problems you face and the decisions you need to make. ★★★ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Look at your situation realistically. If you allow someone you love to talk you into something you aren’t ready to do, you will have regrets that will lead to a breakdown of your relationship. Change is needed but must be a positive endeavor. ★★★★★ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You won’t be able to handle emotional turmoil in a practical manner. Don’t let someone coerce you into making a promise you know you will not keep. A partnership you’ve been considering will determine how much you can do. ★★ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): A change will be as good as a rest. Visit an old friend or a destination that brings you great joy and relaxation. You need time to think about how you are going to take care of some of the responsibilities heading your way. ★★★★ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don’t slip into the same old routine when you can be and do so much more. Look to someone you respect to help you move forward instead of stagnating and making the same mistakes over again. Do what needs to be done. ★★★ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t let erratic behavior be your downfall. If you are unfair or think you deserve more than everyone else, you will find yourself on a slippery slope, losing your fair share and not getting anything at all. ★★★





Here’s another deal from the 2009 Bermuda Bowl final, United States vs. Italy, in which the victorious U.S. team gained with better bidding judgment. With the U.S. sitting East-West, East opened one spade, and West responded 1NT, passed out. Italy’s South timidly declined to act. Declarer was favored with a heart opening lead and managed six tricks. Italy was plus 50, but that result was swept away at the other table. After 1NT by Italy’s East and two passes, Ralph Katz for the U.S. balanced with two clubs, conventionally showing length in both majors, and Nick Nickell jumped to game.

CLUB DISCARD Nickell took the ace of diamonds and was reluctant to lead trumps, lest East have A-Q-x. Nickell took the ace of spades and led the jack, discarding a club when East played low. Declarer next ruffed a spade. West overruffed, and the defense played two rounds of trumps, but Nickell still ended with five (in all) trump tricks, two spades, a diamond and two clubs for plus 420.

DAILY QUESTION You hold: S K Q 6 5 4 H A 4 D 6 3 2 C Q J 4. Your partner opens one heart, you respond one spade and he bids two diamonds. The opponents pass. What do you say? ANSWER: Bid 3NT if you can trust your partner to have a sound opening bid. But few partners are that trustworthy these days, hence a bid of 2NT may be discreet with many partners. If partner holds 3 2, K J 7 6 3, A K 7 5 4, 3, you can give him a chance to sign off at three diamonds. East dealer Neither side vulnerable


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.

Kahne, Harvick face big years W

hile the start of the 2010 NASCAR season is less than a month away, Kasey Kahne and Kevin Harvick have 2011 already in the back of their minds. That’s because both are in a contract renewal year: Kahne with Richard Petty Motorsports and Harvick with Richard Childress Racing. SPORTS Both say they are undecided on Greer what they might do Smith because they want ■■■ to see if their teams improve during the coming season. Kahne won twice last season for RPM but wants to see if a switch from Dodge to Ford and a technical alliance with Ford stalwart Roush Fenway Racing will make him a frontrunner on a more consistent basis. He is also looking for more stability on a team that was owned by Ray Evernham when he first

joined it in 2004 and moved to ownership by George Gillett two years ago as Evernham’s role was diminished. Kahne won six Kahne races in 2006 but none the following year and two in 2008 and 2009. “They’ve made me an offer, but I just want to wait and see,” Kahne said. “The biggest thing is performance and how can I win races and be more consistent. I’m hoping this merger and having the Roush people and the Yates people is a step in that direction.” RPM competition director Robbie Loomis said his goal is to turn Kahne into a bigger victory threat. “We know what a great talent Kasey is and you have other drivers in the same situation in a contract year,” Loomis said. “I just try to block out all the outside noise. I learned when I was at Hendrick (Motorsports) and we were running for the championship (with Jeff Gordon)

and starting Jimmie Johnson’s team in 2001 that I have to stay focused on performance. I have to give Kasey cars that he can win with. And at the end of the Harvick day, hopefully we make it hard for him to leave.” Harvick hasn’t won a points race in RCR’s No. 29 since the 2007 Daytona 500. Last season, when all of RCR’s cars were running poorly in midseason, Harvick gave an indication that he was thinking about leaving at the end of this year. Harvick declined Tuesday to say if he had a timetable for determining if he should stay at RCR. “It will all happen how it’s meant to happen,” Harvick said. “I’m not going to push that side of it. They’ll all talk and do their thing behind the scenes. I don’t want to get into a political war with anybody. I just want to be the driver.” Said RCR owner Richard





Dillon braces for hectic schedule. 4D Childress: “The door is always open. We’ve got to get started and see how the season starts up. He’s done a great job for RCR going back to 2001 when he got in the car (after the death of Dale Earnhardt).” Harvick said he believes that he is on the same page with Childress on what the team needs to do to improve. He also believes that he can have a successful season despite being in a contract year. “I think our relationship is good,” Harvick said. “We’re on a common ground as far as how we want to work together to succeed and make things right this year. We went through a few bumpy weeks last year. We understand we want the same thing. It is just a matter of getting there.” | 888-3519

Like it or not, Chargers fans, coach Norv Turner will be sticking around for four more years. The Chargers announced late Monday night that the oft-maligned coach is getting a threeyear contract extension through 2013. The extension came just more than 24 hours after the Chargers were shocked 17-14 by the New York Jets in the divisional playoffs, renewing calls by some fans for Turner to be fired. The team had been expected to extend Turner’s contract in the offseason so he wouldn’t be a lame duck next fall.The Chargers have won three straight AFC West titles under Turner, although they are only 3-3 in the playoffs. They reached the AFC title game in his first season before losing at New England. The Bolts have been eliminated in the divisional round the last two seasons. Turner’s regular-season record with San Diego is 32-16, but his overall record is still sub-.500, at 90-98-1.

Thomasville girls shut down Trinity BY JASON QUEEN SPECIAL TO THE ENTERPRISE

TRINITY – Leading by six early in the second half, Trinity’s girls threw a defensive wrinkle at Thomasville that threw the Bulldogs into temporary confusion. After Thomasville coach Lacardo Means’ timeout, it was Trinity that was left searching for answers. The Bulldogs turned up the defensive pressure, holding Trinity to 11 second-half points en route to a 51-41 nonconference win on Tuesday night.



Trinity’s boys nip Thomasville. 3D “Against a half-court set, especially that kind of half-court set, we tend to struggle a little bit,” Means conceded. “So we tried to quicken the pace a little bit, make it a little more of a helter-skelter game.” Christina Carter was the primary benefactor of the increased tempo, pumping in a game-high 23 points with a healthy variety of 3pointers and slashes to the basket.

Thomasville improved to 5-3 with the win, while Trinity slipped to 6-10. The home Bulldogs took control early, with Amber Simrel scoring seven first-quarter points to stake Trinity to a 17-9 lead. But Thomasville battled back, tying things up three times in the second period before heading to the locker room down 30-26. To start the second half, Trinity put center Courtney Cox at the top of its zone in an effort to prevent Carter from penetrating, and it slowed the Bulldogs down in the half-court game. So Thomas-

ville turned to its press, outscoring Trinity 16-3 for the bulk of the third quarter to take a 42-37 lead. With a comfortable enough margin and Trinity refusing to come out of its zone, Thomasville ran the clock for most of the fourth quarter to secure the win. The home Bulldogs got within three on Cox’s pair of inside buckets midway through the fourth, but never scored again. Jonesha Davis chipped in 11 points for Thomasville, while Logan Terry paced Trinity with 16. Simrel finished with 12 for Trinity.




on’t look now, but the Charlotte Bobcats are heating things up in the NBA’s Eastern Conference. In recent years, mid-January meant the Bobcats were a few weeks away from being mathematically eliminated from the playoff race. Not this year. The Bobcats are hotter than that first cup of coffee on a winter morning. Charlotte owns eight straight home wins and five straight victories overall entering tonight’s game against visiting Miami.

The Bobcats (20-19) shared fifth place in the Eastern Conference after Monday’s 105-103 victory over Sacramento. This marks the latest in a season the ‘Cats have sported a better than .500 record in franchise history. The latest Charlotte was above .500 previously in its six seasons was 6-5 in 2007-08. Head coach Larry Brown has things rolling in the right direction. Gerald Wallace and Stephen Jackson are having All-Star caliber seasons, point guard Raymond Felton is emerging as a big-time

playmaker and the supporting cast is jelling. And the Bobcats have more than held their own against the league’s upper echelon. Charlotte owns two wins over the Cavs to go along with victories over the Hawks, Heat, Rockets, Spurs and Suns. Charlotte figures to stay in the thick of the postseason mix until the end. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Bobcats crash the playoff party for the first time in team history.

A missed shot amid plenty of contact ensued, but Bello was there for a putback attempt on which he got hit. His two foul shots fell true after a Greensboro Day timeout. “It was a battle – a big win for us,� Wildcats coach Pat Kahny said. “They play really good defense, they keep running guys at you. It was one of those games where two teams were out there fighting.� Bello finished with 12 points, seven rebounds and three blocks, while BASKETBALL Nwamu tallied nine points, 10 boards and two WESTCHESTER, rejections.

Trinity boys outlast Thomasville BY JASON QUEEN SPECIAL TO THE ENTERPRISE

TRINITY – Thomasville’s boys had two buzzer-beater prayers answered in their nonconference game at Trinity on Tuesday. They found no divine intervention to slow down Matt Watkins. The Bulldogs’ big man muscled his way to a game-high 29 points to lead Trinity to a 47-42 win, totally controlling the middle any time Thomasville crept within striking distance. “Matt’s our go-to guy, and we struggled getting it in there some,� Trinity coach Tim Kelly said. “But when we were able to get him the ball, he made good things happen.� Few good things happened for

Trinity early on, as the Bulldogs struggled against Thomasville’s zone and trailed 10-3 early. But Kelly called timeout, telling his team “You look like you’re scared to death!� in the huddle. “A lot of teams will come out and see zone and just start jacking up shots,� he said. “And we did that a little bit early. But we called timeout and said, ‘Look, that’s not our game. If it’s open we’ll take it, but we still want to get the ball inside.’ And I thought we were able to do that.� Indeed. Matt Willett scored in the paint to tie things at 12-12 early in the second quarter, and Dustin Mann fed Watkins for two buckets inside to stretch Trinity’s advantage to 16-12. Things were nip-and-

tuck from there until Watkins’ personal 7-2 spurt late in the third made it 34-29. But just after his final basket, Thomasville’s De Dow heaved a three-quarter quart shot that made its way through the rafters and went in to send the crowd into a frenzy. Undeterred, Trinity went right back to its bread and butter. Watkins scored the Bulldogs’ first six points of the fourth quarter, and Thomasville never could tie or take the lead again. Thomasville’s Sam Nelson hit the night’s second wildest shot, from just inside half-court, right after the final horn sounded. Trinity (13-3) hosts Southern Guilford today. Cord Fordham led Thomasville’s attack with 11 points.

CHAPEL HILL – North Carolina coach Roy Williams watched Sunday’s matchup between Duke and Wake Forest and came away impressed with both team’s big guys. The Blue Devils and Demon Deacons combined for 47 fouls and played one of the most physical games in the ACC this season. “It was a man’s game, by far,� Williams said. “It was sort of scary watching that part of it because we haven’t, ourselves, dominated the backboards like that against another big team.� The No. 24 Tar Heels, who were dubbed the No. 1 frontcourt in the nation by before the season began, have struggled against physical big men this season, and it’s a concern for Williams as his team hosts the sizable Demon Deacons tonight (7 p.m., ESPN) at the Smith Center. It also does not help UNC, which already lost sophomore forward Tyler Zeller to a stress fracture in his right foot for 4 to 6 weeks, that it could be without its top forward against Wake Forest (12-4, 2-2). Sophomore Ed Davis,

ence) is off to its best start since 2006-07. The Tigers ATLANTA – Zachery fell to 15-4, 3-2.

who leads the team with 14.6 points a game and 9.4 rebounds, sprained his left ankle in Saturday’s loss to Georgia Tech and missed practice Monday. Williams said Davis was “expected to be limited at best� for Tuesday’s practice and would be a game-time decision today. Sophomore guard Larry Drew II, who hyperextended his right knee Saturday and missed Monday’s practice, is expected to play today. Without Davis in the lineup, freshmen Travis and David Wear could see more playing time up front, and Williams said there’s a possibility of junior Will Graves sliding over from the three to the four spot. The loss of Davis also would make it even tougher for the Tar Heels to contain 6-9 forward Al-Farouq Aminu, who leads Wake Forest with 17.6 points per game and leads the ACC with 11.6 rebounds, and 7-0 Chas McFarland, who averages 6.9 points and 7.6 rebounds. The Tar Heels (12-6, 1-2 ACC) were outmuscled inside by similar big men in losses to No. 5 Syracuse, No. 2 Kentucky and No. 1 Texas and more recently in losses to No. 17 Clemson and No. 19 Georgia Tech.


DURHAM – With perimeter players Jon Scheyer, Nolan Smith and Kyle Singler all ranking in the top 10 in the ACC in scoring, Duke’s quartet of post players can be categorized as “complementary.� Yet of late, there have been more and more reasons to be complimentary of the group. “I’m really happy with how we’ve been playing,� said sophomore Miles Plumlee, who is coming off a career game heading into tonight’s contest at N.C. State (9 p.m., WFMY, Ch. 2). “It’s really big for our team to have an inside presence, whether it’s one guy or all four of us getting it done. “We need that for us to be really good.� In No. 7 Duke’s victory over Wake Forest on Sunday, the foursome of Miles and Mason Plumlee, Lance Thomas and Brian Zoubek wasn’t just complementary – it was crucial. That especially went for the Plumlees, who combined for 30 points and 21 rebounds. Over the past halfdozen games, in fact, the Plumlees are combining to put up stats worthy of an elite-level player.

While averaging 37 minutes a game between them, they’re teaming to score 18.6 points and grab 13 rebounds since around the start of the ACC season for the Blue Devils (15-2, 3-1 ACC). “Our perimeter guys always bring it. Lance and ‘Zoobs’ always bring it,� Mason Plumlee said. “We’re just trying to follow suit and do our part.� Duke’s big men, in fact, have showed signs of perhaps even stepping out of the shadows cast by Duke’s shorter players. Guard Nolan Smith scored 20 points against Wake, but credited the big men with the victory. Duke already has handled one ACC team that features one dominant big man, holding Trevor Booker to 10 points in a 74-53 victory over Clemson, and the Blue Devils will face a similar situation tonight against Tracy Smith and the Wolfpack (12-6, 1-3). Smith, who averages 16.9 points and 8.8 rebounds, can’t do it alone. He’ll need help from N.C. State’s up-and-down point guards and could use a boost from freshman marksman Scott Wood, the reigning ACC freshman of the week coming off a 31-point performance in a victory at FSU.

Dillon juggles racing, HPU class schedule BY GREER SMITH ENTERPRISE SPORTS WRITER

MOTORSPORTS NOTEBOOK: CONCORD – Austin Dillon is ready to tackle a hectic schedule. In addition to continuing his education at High Point University, Dillon will also compete in the NASACR Truck Series for his grandfather, Richard Childress. In an announcement during the Charlotte Motor Speedway media tour, Childress formally confirmed that his grandson will drive a black No. 3 truck in all 26 races. The truck conjured up memories of the cars Dale Earnhardt drove for Childress in the Cup Series and the trucks Mike Skinner drove for Childress to the first Truck Series championship in 1995. Bass Pro Shops will serve as sponsor for 20 of the 26 events. Dillon is starting his second semester of his freshman year at HPU. “Racing is something I love to do, so between racing and school, I have to find a happy medium, I guess,� Dillon said. “First semester went well. Second semester is starting off slow with all the media and getting prepared for Daytona, but High Point has done a great job by making my schedule lenient as I can to get out and do the things I need to do to go racing.� Dillon raced in the Truck series twice last season as a trial. He qualified ninth and fourth and wound up finishing 12th and 15th. “Last year I did a total of 54 races and this year there is 26,� Dillon said. “The biggest thing with this deal is the pressure. We’ve got to focus and hunker down. This is where you can make it or break it as far as your career. So we’ve got to make the most of the opportunities when we get them.�

that it is adding a third Ford entry for the upcoming season. David Gilliland will be the primary driver for car No. 38. Robert Richardson III will be behind the wheel for the DayDillon tona 500, the first race at Talladega and the July race at Daytona. Gilliland was also announced Tuesday as BAM Racing’s driver for Speedweeks. The team, which is re-skinning Dodges that were purchased from Petty Enterprises when it folded last winter, had previously announced that it will field cars for Travis Kvapil and Kevin Conway. Kvapil replaces John Andretti in car No. 34, while Conway will be in car No. 37. A spokesman for Front Row said that Andretti still wants to drive on an occasional basis and might be placed in the No. 38 from time to time.

BABY TALK Carl Edwards said that Feb. 17, three days after the Daytona 500, is the due date for the daughter his wife is expecting, while Elliott Sadler said his first child, a boy, is due in four or five weeks. “We were walking across a parking lot the other day and all of a sudden my wife stopped and said, ‘I think my water broke,’ � Edwards said. “She was messing with me and she never does that. “I asked her if we couldn’t just bring the doctor along with us to the track. She didn’t think that was very cool.� Edwards’ car owner, Jack Roush, said that Erik Darnell is already lined up to practice and qualify Edwards’ car should that conflict with Edwards being with his wife for the delivery.

AP source: NASCAR looking for new garage boss CONCORD (AP) – NASCAR is interviewing candidates for a new Sprint Cup Series director, and current garage boss John Darby will train his replacement before moving into a managerial role. Several people familiar with NASCAR’s restructuring plan told The Associated Press that Darby will move into an over-

sight role at the research and development center. The people all spoke on condition of anonymity because NASCAR will not announce its planned changes for 2010 until Thursday. There is no timetable for hiring a new director of NASCAR’s premiere series, and Darby will fill the role as long as it takes

to hire and prepare a replacement. Then he will transition into a new position that oversees the officials in all three of NASCAR’s national series, as well as focus on the technical aspects of the sport. Darby replaced Gary Nelson as director of NASCAR’s premiere series following the 2001 season.

George resigns from Indy Motor Speedway board INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – Tony George’s separation from the management of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is complete. George, who was ousted as the CEO last June, has resigned from the board of directors that oversees the speedway and the family business, Hulman & Co. The move was announced Tuesday in a statement by George’s mother, Mari Hulman George, who chairs the board.

Federer drops set, wins opener Down Under

Greensboro’s Isner remains hopeful MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — John Isner is confident the United States can perform well in the Davis Cup this year despite the absence of No. 7 Andy Roddick and No. 45 James Blake. “We’ll be underdogs, but I think we could have a shot,� said Isner, the second-highest American in the rankings at No. 28, after advancing to the second round of the Australian Open. The United States will play Serbia on March 57 on indoor clay in Belgrade. Third-ranked Novak Djokovic is expected to lead a strong Serbian lineup. “That’ll be a tough task,

that’s for sure,� Isner said. “I don’t think anybody would be favored against Djokovic on clay, but you never know. That’s why we go out and play the game.� Roddick and Blake were part of the U.S. team that won the 2007 Davis Cup team. Roddick announced this month he’ll skip the 2010 Davis Cup to avoid strain on his knee. Blake also decided not to play Davis Cup, saying Tuesday that it was too disruptive to his schedule as he tries to improve his ranking ahead of the French Open. He finished out of the top 25 last year, the first time in five years.

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) – The last time Roger Federer played at Rod Laver Arena, he left in tears after losing the Australian Open final to Rafael Nadal a year ago. There were no such waterworks Tuesday, just a few tense moments for the Swiss star seeking his 16th Grand Slam title in a 4-6, 6-2, 76 (2), 6-0 first-round win over Igor Andreev of Russia. Top-ranked Serena Williams, the defending champion, had an easy first-rounder, beating Urszula Radwanska of Poland 6-2, 6-1. Her sister, sixth-seeded Venus, cruised past Lucie Safarova of the Czech Republic 6-2, 6-2. Melanie Oudin, the 18-year-old American who made a surprising run to last year’s U.S. Open quarterfinals, lost her first-round match 26, 7-5, 7-5 to Alla Kudryavtseva of Russia.

The resignation also removes George from any remaining role in the family business, the statement said. It said the board vacancy would be addressed “at a later date.� The Hulman-George family has run the speedway, home of the Indianapolis 500, for six decades. “As members of his family, we are sorry to see Tony leave,� Mari Hulman George said in the statement. “We are grateful for his service.�


Chan Gailey speaks after being introduced as the Buffalo Bills new head coach during a news conference in Orchard Park, N.Y. on Tuesday.

Bills hire Gailey as head coach ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) – Chan Gailey was hired by the Buffalo Bills on Tuesday, getting a second chance to prove himself as an NFL coach and inheriting a team that has missed the playoffs for 10 straight years. Gailey was introduced by general manager Buddy Nix at a new conference which ended a two-month search to replace Dick Jauron, who was fired in November. Gailey takes over a team

that finished 6-10 and becomes the Bills’ fifth coach since Marv Levy retired after the 1997 season. Gailey has spent 15 of his 38 years of coaching in the NFL. In his two years coaching the Dallas Cowboys, he went 18-14 and led the team to consecutive playoff appearances – both losses. He was dismissed after the 1999 season, and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has acknowledged his mistake in firing Gailey.

Cowboys’ Jones indicates Phillips back in 2010 ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) – Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is giving every indication that he is picking up coach Wade Phillips’ contract option for the 2010 season, even without saying so. “We don’t have any funny business here guys. There’s nothing funny going on here, at

all,� Jones said Tuesday. “We just want to do this when we both can do it and both get it stated the way we want to state it.� As for Phillips’ coming back for his fourth season, Jones said he would answer all the questions at a season wrapup news conference later in the week with “both him and me there.�

Saint’s McAllister retiring from football NEW ORLEANS (AP) – Deuce McAllister says he’s retiring from pro football. McAllister hasn’t played since 2008 but briefly rejoined the New Orleans Saints last week to serve as an honorary captain for the club’s playoff win over Arizona on Saturday. McAllister confirmed his plans in a text message to The Associated

Press. The Clarion-Ledger in Jackson, Miss., first reported the former Ole Miss star’s plans on Tuesday afternoon. The 31-year-old McAllister was drafted in the first round by New Orleans in 2001. He is the Saints’ all-time leading rusher with 6,096 yards. His 55 total touchdowns and 49 rushing touchdowns also are club records.

Durham County District Court said the three will appear in court on March 25. They were arrested after gunshots were fired near a university residence hall early Sunday. Each is charged with felony possession and discharge of a weapon. They are 18-year-olds John Drew and Kyle Griswould of Midland, Ga.; and 19-year-old Brandon Putnam of Peachtree City, Ga.

Citigroup hit with $7.8 billion loss NEW YORK (AP) – Citigroup Inc. became the latest bank to take a cautious view of consumers’ credit problems, reporting a $7.77 billion fourthquarter loss due to failed loans and the costs of repaying government bailout money. The bank said Tuesday it did see some early signs of improvement in its credit business although it still needed to set aside $8.18 billion to cover unpaid loans. That amount was down 10 percent from the third quarter, and 36 percent from a year earlier. John Gerspach, Citigroup’s chief financial

officer, reported one of those improving signs during a conference call with the media, noting that the number of mortgage and credit card loans that were newly delinquent, or between one and three months past due, had started to stabilize and even drop in some of its lending portfolios. However, “the U.S. credit story is still very much developing,” Gerspach said. Gerspach’s comments were similar to those made by JPMorgan Chase & Co. when it reported Friday that it earned $3.28 billion dur-

ing the fourth quarter thanks to its strong investment banking unit. JPMorgan said it set aside $7.28 billion for failed loans during the fourth quarter, nearly identical to the amount it reserved for bad loans during the final quarter in 2008. It also warned that it didn’t know when it would be able to stop adding to its loan reserves. 2009 was a year of drastic change at Citigroup, the big bank hit hardest by the credit crisis and recession. It may turn out to have the poorest fourth-quarter showing among the big banks, as it lacks the big


investment bank and trading operations that have helped other companies like JPMorgan Chase offset their losses from bad loans. The bank, which received $45 billion in government bailout money, repaid $20 billion during the fourth quarter and raised an equal amount of capital to fund the repayment. It shed 100,000 jobs during the year and completed 14 asset sales, including the Smith Barney brokerage and Japanese units Nikko Cordial Securities and Nikko Asset Management.

Products from Cadbury and Kraft are arranged for a photo on Tuesday in New York.

Kraft Foods, Cadbury reach deal LONDON (AP) – British candy maker Cadbury PLC on Tuesday accepted and recommended to shareholders Kraft’s improved takeover offer worth $18.9 billion, potentially ending a months-long corporate battle to create the world’s largest maker of chocolate and sweets. The U.S. food conglomerate said the board of Cadbury, maker of Creme Eggs and Dentyne gum, had unanimously endorsed the offer worth 840 pence per share, or 11.9 bil-

lion pounds in total. The revised bid is for 500 pence cash and 0.1874 new Kraft shares for each Cadbury share, still somewhat less than some analysts believed the company is worth. Kraft Foods Inc.’s previous offer of 10.5 billion pounds ($17.1 billion) valued Cadbury at about 770 pence, but was dismissed by the British company’s management as “derisory.” The combined companies would be the world

leader in chocolate and sweets, Kraft said, and No. 2 globally in the highgrowth gum market. “We have great respect for Cadbury’s brands, heritage and people. We believe they will thrive as part of Kraft Foods,” said Kraft’s CEO Irene Rosenfield. “This recommended offer represents a compelling opportunity for Cadbury shareholders, providing both immediate value certainty and upside potential in the combined company.”

Cadbury Chairman Roger Carr, who had led a spirited defense against Kraft’s previous offer, said he believed the deal “represents good value for Cadbury shareholders.” Kraft still has to persuade a majority of Cadbury shareholders to accept the deal, and the door remains open until Saturday for The Hershey Co. to jump in with a rival bid. Cadbury shares were up 3.3 percent at 834 pence following the announcement.

Duke Energy slashes Microsoft cuts IP Midwest work force address storage time CHARLOTTE (AP) – Duke Energy is offering buyouts to employees as it consolidates finance, legal and other corporate functions performed in Midwest offices to its Charlotte headquarters. The consolidation is designed to help the company shave $200 million from operating expenses this year on top of $150 million in cost-cutting in 2009, The Charlotte Observer reported Tuesday. Duke Energy has maintained regional offices in locations including Cincinnati and Plainfield, Ind., since its 2006 merger with

Cincinnati-based Cinergy. The utility employs about 3,300 workers in Ohio, 2,500 in Indiana and 300 in Kentucky, but the majority of that Midwestern work force won’t be affected by the consolidation, Duke Energy said. The company has not set a target for the staff reductions brought on by lower sales and higher costs, spokesman Tom Williams said. “We’re just trying to tighten up all around in a methodical way,” he said. “The whole intent is to contain costs and maintain the financial strength of the company.”

BRUSSELS (AP) – Microsoft Corp. said Tuesday it would shorten the time it stores Internet users’ addresses from Web search queries from 18 months to six months following a request from a European Union data privacy panel. It said the change would make its Bing search a better choice for privacy-conscious users than the world’s leading search engine Google Inc., because Microsoft will delete the entire Internet Protocol address from search queries – the

string of numbers that shows a computer’s location. “We believe that the balance between privacy and efficiency is very much in the mind of consumers,” Microsoft’s associate general counsel John Vassallo told reporters. “Getting the balance right does make the search engine more attractive.” Microsoft says its search engine has some 2 percent of the European market, well below Google on 80 percent.

Chevron to shrink refining business NEW YORK (AP) – Chevron Corp. said Tuesday it plans to shrink its refining business in a move that will cut jobs throughout the company. Chevron hasn’t yet decided how many of its employees will be affected and whether the cuts will be concentrated in the U.S. A spokesman said the company is reviewing its entire downstream operation and will announce more details about how it plans to reorganize in March. Chevron’s refining business will be “a less complex and smaller organization

that will require fewer positions,” spokesman Lloyd Avram said. Petroleum refineries have struggled to make money as oil prices doubled from early 2009 while demand for gasoline and jet fuel dropped. Independent refiners shuttered some of their operations last year, and others are running at the lowest levels since 1991. Chevron, the second-largest U.S. oil company, has warned investors that profits will shrink in the fourth quarter, primarily because of its refining business.

Japan Airlines files for bankruptcy TOKYO (AP) – Japan Airlines filed for one of the country’s largest bankruptcies ever Tuesday, entering a restructuring that will shrink Asia’s top carrier and its presence around the world. Staggering under a $25.6 billion debt mountain, the carrier applied for protection from creditors under the Corporate Rehabilitation Law — Japan’s version of Chapter 11 — with the Tokyo District Court. Japan’s flagship airline will slash nearly 16,000 jobs, reduce pensions for

retired staff, cut routes and shift to more fuel-efficient aircraft as part of its restructuring. Some $10 billion of government cash will keep JAL’s planes in the air during the reorganization. Lenders will forgive $8 billion in debt, and JAL shares will be removed from the Tokyo Stock Exchange on Feb. 20, wiping out investors. There was no word on the outcome of a fierce tug-of-war between Delta Air Lines and American Airlines for a slice of JAL’s business.

Google scraps China phone launch BEIJING (AP) – Google on Tuesday postponed the launch of its mobile phone in China, adding to the potential commercial fallout of its dispute with Beijing over Internet censorship. One person briefed on Google’s decision said it was linked to the company’s threat that it will shut its Chinese-based search engine if restrictions aren’t eased. The company concluded it would “not be a good experience” for consumers to receive a phone right now.
