Triad slowly thaws out Road conditions remain treacherous BY PAUL B. JOHNSON ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

TRIAD – The commute for the start of the work week could be dicey for motorists across the region as snow that melted Sunday refreezes into ice sheets along roads this morning. Work crews, aided by sunny skies Sunday, made progress clearing all or parts of main highways, but secondary and neighborhood streets remained packed with snow and ice in the High Point area. All area public schools will be closed today, and the N.C. State Highway Patrol urges motorists to use caution when driving to work this morning. “It could be bad traffic,” said Randy Knight with the Highway Patrol district office in Greensboro. Road conditions should remain treacherous for the next several mornings as low temperatures overnight dip below freezing, and any melted snow refreezes. “It ain’t going away quick,” Knight said Sunday.

School system may need grants to pay for program. 1B

BY DAVID NIVENS ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

GUILFORD COUNTY – School district officials are reviewing an alternative for the Mission Possible incentive pay plan that would pay bonuses to all school workers at targeted schools for achieving school improvement goals. The proposal offered during a Guilford County Board of Education retreat last week still would target schools with a history of staff retention problems, and math teachers could earn even more. If approved, portions of the new pay plan could start as soon as August 2011. The plan comes from a study group of teachers and administrators led by Amy Holcombe, district executive director of

SCALES

Here are some of the pay scales in the proposed school district incentives plan: Principals: The maximum bonus would drop to $10,000 from $15,000. Teachers: The maximum award for math teachers would go up to $16,500, from $14,000, for those teaching tested subjects. The bonus for other math teachers would drop from $14,000 to a maximum of $6,500. Those at the next highest level would be third to fifth grade teachers who could get a maximum bonus of $8,000, up from $6,500. Others: Custodians and bus drivers could get a bonus of as much as $750.

Most secondary roads in the state have not been plowed, according to the DOT. The majority of the secondary road clearing by the DOT began Sunday. City of High Point crews have been clearing priority roads but don’t have the resources to tackle snow removal from neighborhood streets, said Public Services Director Chris Thompson. Crews will continue plowing today, he said. While most people find coping with the cold an inconvenience, the volunteers at Open Door Ministries in High Point were contending with situations that could involve life or death.

HIGH POINT – Weeks after the City Council scrapped the controversial Market Overlay District, the City Project says they’ll seek alternative ideas about revitalizing the downtown area from showroom owners who opposed the district plan. “We were all a bit surprised that (the plan) didn’t pass,” said Wendy Fuscoe, executive director of the City Project, the organization that helped create the market district plan. “We didn’t have any other plans at the time because we thought it was a matter of where the lines would be drawn, not if the lines would be drawn.” The boundaries of the plan, which determined where new showrooms could be built in the downtown area, were the most debated issue. Fuscoe said the plan was designed to confine furniture showrooms to one area so other businesses could thrive downtown, such as retail shops and restaurants. The owners of showrooms excluded from the boundaries, however, said their showrooms could be considered “secondary” by marketgoers if their properties were left outside of the lines. Aaron Clinard, chairman of the City Project, said those showroom owners and others who attended the public hearings will be invited to a “brainstorm meeting” in early February to outline new ways to revitalize the downtown area. “We’re trying to turn this into a positive,” Clinard

We want to take advantage of that and basically ask for their ideas as to what they can do to help us.” Fuscoe said the Aquarius Music Hall, which began holding live concerts in December in the former Natale showroom building on English Road, could demonstrate that properties in the downtown area can be utilized for other uses. Similar entertainment venues, restaurants and bars should be the first businesses to spur revitalization downtown, she said, and retail shops would likely follow. Making that vision a reality still is the main goal of the City Project, she said. “The zoning didn’t pass, but that’s not to say that a vision of

HIGH POINT – For 15 years, High Point and Thomasville have had an agreement that sets out growth boundaries between the cities. Officials for both municipalities favor maintaining the current boundaries in a proposed new annexation agreement which the High Point City Council will consider adopting during its meeting today. It would take effect March 1 and remain in place for 20 years. The new agreement would delineate the same potential growth areas for the two cities in an unincorporated portion of northwestern Randolph County that are now in place. Under the arrangement, the area is divided into sections in which both cities agree not to seek annexations – voluntarily or involuntarily. High Point’s growth area includes territory north and south of Interstate 85 Business Loop and east of Prospect Street. Some of that territory could be ceded to Trinity’s growth area if High Point establishes an an-

year in addition to their regular salaries. The proposed plan offers incentives of as much as $16,500 for math teachers. Math teachers also would receive the top placement incentive of $5,000. The individual math teacher bonus jumps from $5,000 to $10,000 for top results based on district criteria. “Recruitment is the key issue,” Holcombe said. “We want good teachers in all the classrooms, not substitutes. Math and science teacher awards

need to be the highest because good ones are hard to find.” The plan rewards lowperforming schools when students earn expected or high-achieving status on the Adequate Yearly Progress report, the federal accountability standard under the No Child Left Behind Act. “Student growth is where our focus is,” Holcombe said. “Growth is a good investment.”

City officials are also working toward renewing High Point’s annexation agreement with Archdale.

BOTTOM LINE

Snowstorm heads off to sea RICHMOND, Va. (AP) – A winter storm that crossed in a nearly straight line dumping snow, sleet and ice this week from northern Texas to Washington was heading off the Atlantic coast early Sunday. More than 5 inches of dry, fluffy snow was reported in Washington but it was finishing up by late Saturday night, National Weather Service forecaster Matthew Kramar said. The storm left a wake of damage beginning in northern Texas and Oklahoma, where snow and ice shut down interstates and snapped power lines to thousands of customers. It left roads icy and snowpacked across the South, and thousands were without power as ice accumulated. Although police said they had to clear hundreds of wrecks

SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) – Stephyn Duck has spent the past couple of weeks depriving himself of his sight and hearing. It’s been frustrating not being able to read books or hear chirping birds. But Duck knows he’ll regain his senses. Duck, 20, a junior psychology major at Wofford College, decided to deprive himself of two of his senses as part of an interim project. He’s hoping to gather data on whether his other senses will improve while he’s unable to see and hear, but he’s most interested in how he’s treated. “I wanted to see the social ramifications,� Duck said. “How would people act differently toward� (me)? The idea for the project stemmed from Duck’s friendship with Ameer Armaly, who was born blind. The two became friends while at Mauldin High School. “He’s always amazed me,� Duck said of Armaly, a junior computer science

We need new political party that solves problems I watched the Massachusetts Senate race with great interest. I saw a less-than-energetic Democratic incumbent lose to a Republican who downplayed his party affiliation and suggested he was “independent.” Analysts said that many voters were disenchanted with Democrats and Republicans and were increasingly registering as “Independents.” That was the “swing” vote. Here’s the catch-22. There is no independent choice. Republicans and Democrats alike know that independents will vote – either Democratic or Republican. They say anything to get the disenfranchised voters on their side, then pledge allegiance to their own party’s platform once again. It’s how our bipartisan system crushes the impact of voters who don’t really like either side. In this manner, the two parties maintain their power over us without successfully addressing issues that affect us all. When every politician’s top priority is immediately how to win another term, those issues get sacrificed. They preserve that same top priority by bowing to the power and the money that got them to D.C. There is no partisan effort that isn’t politicized to that very end. It’s all about the winning. Not leading. Not working together. Some say it is not so; that this system is why we are great. To them I say, look at history. It is this same failing political system that has gotten us where we are today. In only a couple of generations, it’s nearly bankrupted America and continues to do so – rapidly. Very rapidly. It’s time, no it’s past time, for a third party (Patriot Party maybe?), made up of mainstream Americans who adamantly and consistently reject any affiliation with Democrats or Republicans, conservatives or liberals, and whose whole focus is on leading objectively to resolve problems that bipartisanship has caused for all Americans.

too many years ago, these two would have been charged with “aiding and abetting,” instead they are responsible for protecting us from people just like them. Unbelievable!

God gave us a winter good book also says not to judge people. I believe she called people who drink “the liquor crowd who cannot exist without being half lit.” That is a very judgmental statement, and I ask did she find that in the good book also? I am not part of any liquor crowd, but I do choose to have a drink on occasion and it is not against the law last time I checked. Also, to say all people of Trinity do not want a vote on alcohol sales is not true either. I know many people in Trinity who very much want another vote on this issue and would like very much to see alcohol sales pass, myself included. These schools she talks about could use some of the tax dollars that alcohol sales would generate for the city. Does anyone believe that any of the kids in Trinity cannot get alcohol just because Trinity does not sell it? Trinity needs more tax revenue dollars and I would prefer alcohol sales over raising everyone’s taxes in Trinity. Any of us can drive a couple of miles in any direction and buy alcohol in Thomasville and High Point, and they get what should be the City of Trinity’s tax revenue dollars. Not just the alcohol tax dollars, either, as many in Trinity drive to High Point, Thomasville, Greensboro and Asheboro to eat a nice dinner and, yes, many have an alcohol drink with dinner. Look at how Asheboro’s U.S. 64 corridor has grown with new restaurants since they passed liquor by the drink. Trinity or Archdale will never get decent restaurants until liquor by the drink is passed. Restaurants bring jobs, gas stations and other businesses and most of all, much needed tax dollars.

We have two radical sympathizers protecting us A recent headline from AOL read, “Bin Laden Threatens More Attacks on U.S.” Is anyone surprised? We have, inexplicably, two radical sympathizers, Obama and Holder responsible for protecting us from terrorists. As a young radical, Obama legally changed his name from Barry to Barack. Don’t ask me why. We can only guess. Obama still refuses to acknowledge there are radical Islamists that want to kill us. He referred to the Christmas bomber as an “isolated extremist.” He is an extremist, the bomber was an al-Qaida trained terrorist! Holder’s law firm has often provided pro bono aid to terrorists. He secured pardons from Clinton for the Puerto Rican FALN, a terrorist group responsible for numerous bombing deaths in the 1970s/1980s. He’s trying Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, who has already confessed, and asked to be executed, in a civilian court, something that has never been done before. Perhaps he believes that this is the only way KSM might escape execution! This will be a totally unnecessary, incredibly expensive circus in which KSM will put the United States on trial. Of course, Holder’s boss has been doing that since being elected! This is an affront to all true Americans. While dropping charges against the USS Cole murderers, he wants to prosecute CIA operatives who have helped keep us safe, at least until this administration showed up. These two radicals honestly believe that we, not the terrorists, are the problem in the world. Not

wonderland Our anticipation of the winter’s beauty in the form of pure white snow gives memories of childhood. Only nature at its unique best can produce such a gift. Does everyone really love snow, that beautiful white, pure, mystical gift from above? I often said that snow is one way God has of beautifying His Earth – even the unattractive and ugly sights that man is responsible for once they are covered with gentle snowflakes. Sights of His Creation become clean when covered with snow if only for a brief period of time. When we were children and at a younger age, we loved that part of winter and looked to those first snowflakes. Sleds, making snowmen and other snow related events, were a real thrill. From the mountains to the seashore, people choose their residency using the various temperatures and weather as a factor. Nature pretty much determines who and where gets the most snow. Nationwide, those pure soft crystal white flakes visit the Earth almost everywhere. Most people, I believe, appreciate this part of nature’s gifts to us. Everyone may not agree with my thoughts but that’s OK. I guess I still have a child-like spirit still remaining. Let us stay young as long as we can. Remembering the “Good old days” and the song, “Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow.” What a beautiful winter wonderland. By the way, man cannot control or call the shots. God has the authority over His creation. VAN E. BRINKLEY GABRIANA D. KENNEDY Thomasville

Andre Bauer breeds contempt for the poor f he’d said it of Jews, he would still be apologizing. If he’d said it of blacks, he’d be on BET, begging absolution. If he’d said it of women, the National Organization for Women would have his carcass turning slowly on a spit over an open flame. But he said it of the poor, so he got away with it. “He” is South Carolina Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer, running for governor on the GOP ticket. Speaking of those who receive public assistance, he recently told an audience, “My grandmother was not a highly educated woman, but she told me as a small child to quit feeding stray animals. You know why? Because they breed. You’re facilitating the problem if you give an animal or a person ample food supply. They will reproduce, especially ones that don’t think too much further than that. And so what you’ve got to do is you’ve got to curtail that type of behavior. They don’t know any better.” You read that right. The wouldbe governor of one of the poorest states there is likens the poor to stray animals. And though it drew some

An independent newspaper

newspaper notice, a riposte from “The Daily Show” and rebukes from Bauer’s opponents, it never quite rose to the level of national controversy, OPINION as it would’ve had Bauer compared, Leonard say, women or Jews Pitts to the dogs one feeds ■■■ at one’s back door. The relative silence stands as eloquent testimony to the powerlessness and invisibility of the American poor. One is reminded how earnestly shocked news media were at the poverty they saw five years ago when New Orleans drowned. “Why didn’t they get out?” observers kept asking – as if everyone has a car in the driveway and a wallet full of plastic. The poor fare little better on television. The Evanses of “Good Times” and the Conners from “Roseanne” aside, television has been heavily weighted toward fresh-scrubbed middle- and upperclass families for 60 years. Politicians? They’ll elbow one another aside to pledge allegiance

to the middle class; they are conspicuously less eager to align with those still trying to reach that level. Who, then, speaks for the poor? Who raises a voice when they are scapegoated and marginalized? Who cries out when they are abused by police and failed by schools? Who takes a stand when they are exploited by employers and turned away by hospitals? As near as I can tell, no one does. Unfortunately, poor people have never learned to think of and conduct themselves as a voting bloc; historically, they have proved too readily divisible, usually by race. As Martin Luther King once observed: “If it may be said of the slavery era that the white man took the world and gave the Negro Jesus, then it may be said of the Reconstruction era that the Southern aristocracy took the world and gave the “poor” white man Jim Crow. And when his wrinkled stomach cried out for the food that his empty pockets could not provide, he ate Jim Crow, a psychological bird that told him that no matter how bad off he was, at least he was a white

man, better than the black man.” It takes some helluva psychology to get two men stuck in the same leaking boat to fight one another. You’d think their priority would be to come together, if only long enough to bail water. But the moneyed interests in this country have somehow been able to con the poor into doing just that, fighting tooth and nail when they ought to be standing shoulder to shoulder. One hopes Andre Bauer’s words will provide a wake-up call – in South Carolina and elsewhere – for people who have been down too long and fooled too often, that it will encourage them to organize their votes, raise their voices, push their issues into the public discourse. In America, one is invisible and powerless only so long as one chooses to be. And the Bauers of this world need to know: Sometimes stray animals bite.

Haiti detains Americans taking kids across border PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti – Ten U.S. Baptists were being held in the Haitian capital Sunday after trying to take 33 children out of Haiti at a time of growing fears over possible child trafficking. The church members, most from Idaho, said they were trying to rescue abandoned and traumatized children. But officials said they lacked the proper documents when they were arrested Friday night in a bus along with earthquake survivors aged from 2 months to 12 years. The group said its “Haitian Orphan Rescue Mission� was an effort to help abandoned children by taking them to an orphanage across the border in the Dominican Republic.

UN chief visits Cyprus to boost peace talks NICOSIA, Cyprus – U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon arrived in Cyprus on Sunday in a bid to reenergize slow moving talks aimed at reunifying the ethnically divided island. Ban’s first-ever visit to Cyprus is seen as a personal show of support for talks between the island’s Greek Cypriot President Dimitris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat. Christofias and Talat have achieved only marginal progress in 17 months of open-ended negotiations. But Ban said he’s pleased that the two leaders have achieved significant progress on the key issue of power-sharing.

13 young students killed at party in Mexico CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico – Armed men stormed a party in this violent Mexican border city, killing 13 high school and college students in what witnesses said they thought was an attack prompted by false information. About two dozen teens and young adults were hospitalized after the late Saturday assault in Ciudad Juarez, a drug cartel-plagued city which is one of the deadliest in the world. Family members said the victims had no ties to drug traffickers.

Sri Lanka’s Tamils left to wonder what comes next COLOMBO, Sri Lanka – Riding high on his battlefield victory against the Tamil Tiger rebels and his landslide re-election, Sri Lanka’s president appears under little pressure to tackle the deep ethnic tensions that fueled a generation of conflict here. Any effort to empower the marginalized Tamilspeaking minority could only anger Sinhalese nationalists, and many observers fear that an opportunity to bring a real peace to this country will be squandered. With general elections coming later this year, President Mahinda Rajapaksa has indicated he will wait until the next parliament is in place to deal with Tamil demands for greater rights and self-rule.

Police officer detains a participant of an unauthorized anti-Kremlin protest in downtown Moscow, Sunday.

Russian police break up protests; scores detained MOSCOW – Russian police broke up anti-Kremlin protests in Moscow and St. Petersburg on Sunday, and detained more than 100 demonstrators, including several opposition leaders. In Moscow, several hundred demonstrators gathered in a central square, defying a ban imposed by authorities. The protesters said their rally was banned in violation of the Russian constitution’s guarantee of the right to gather. They denounced the policies of President Dmitry Medvedev and his predecessor and mentor Vladimir Putin.

Relief workers prepared for a woman-only food distribution system in Haiti’s capital, launching a new phase of what they hope will be less cutthroat aid distribution to ensure that families and the weak get supplies following Haiti’s devastating Jan. 12 earthquake.

Afghan leader asks Taliban to lay down guns KABUL (AP) – Afghanistan’s president appealed to Taliban fighters Sunday to lay down their weapons and accept Afghan laws as the government and its international allies push a program to entice militants away from the insurgency. President Hamid Karzai spoke three days after he and Western backers agreed at a conference in London to create a more comprehensive program to bring Taliban insurgents over to the government’s side in order to reduce violence that has

raged in recent years. Incentives have existed for years for the Taliban to stop fighting, but Karzai these have generally been ineffective, attracting only the lowest-level fighters with no guarantees they wouldn’t return to the insurgency or that promised aid would come through. And despite incentives, the insurgency has expanded steadily in the past six years.

Israel: Slain Hamas leader was key arms smuggler JERUSALEM (AP) – Israeli officials said Sunday that a Hamas commander assassinated in Dubai played a central role in smuggling weapons from Iran to Gaza militants. But they refused to say whether Israel was responsible

for killing the man it had sought for two decades. Leaders of the Iranianbacked Hamas have accused Israel of killing Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in a posh Dubai hotel on Jan. 20 and threatened revenge.

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) – The 79-year-old woman with a 55-pound bag of rice perched on her head gingerly descended concrete steps Sunday and passed it off to her daughter-in-law – who quickly disappeared behind the faded leopard-print sheets that are the walls of their makeshift home on the crowded turf of Haiti’s National Stadium. That personal victory for Rosedithe Menelas and her hungry family was a leap forward as well for the United Nations and aid groups that have struggled to help 2 million people who need food aid after the Jan. 12 earthquake. Under a new targeted approach to aid, Menelas and thousands of other women across Haiti’s capital no longer have to battle with men at food handouts that in recent days have been chaotic and dangerous scrums. “Every time they give out food there’s too much trouble,� said Menelas, collapsing into a small wooden chair as two grandchildren quickly scrambled into her lap.

Crist says flights continue from Haiti MIAMI (AP) – Hundreds of people have been flown from Haiti to Florida, even after the U.S. military halted evacuation flights for critically injured patients, the state’s governor said Sunday. Gov. Charlie Crist told ABC News’ “Good Morning America” on Sunday he was puzzled by the suspension, which has been in effect since Wednesday. Other military flights have continued. Military planes carrying 700 U.S. citizens, legal residents and other foreign nationals landed in central Florida over the AP past 24 hours, and three Paramedic Tim Mosher, of Troytown, Ohio, places Betina Joseph, 5, on a stretcher before being driven to a private of those people required jet for her evacuation to the U.S. from Port-au-Prince on Sunday. Doctors skirted a bureaucratic logjam to save the medical care at hospitals, life of Joseph, who developed tetanus from a small cut on her thigh, and two more critically ill children, flying them state officials said. “We’re welcoming Haito U.S. hospitals to avoid a military suspension of medical evacuation flights.

WASHINGTON (AP) – The Obama administration said Sunday it would consider local opposition when deciding where to hold Sept. 11 terror trials and pledged to seek swift justice for the professed mastermind of the attacks. “Khalid Sheikh Mohammed is going to meet justice and he’s going to meet his maker,” said President Barack Obama’s press secretary, Robert Gibbs. “He will be brought to justice and he’s likely to be executed for the heinous crimes that he committed in killing and masterminding the killing of 3,000 Americans.

WASHINGTON (AP) – The Obama administration on Sunday endorsed spending an additional $100 billion to attack painfully high unemployment as it prepared to send Congress a $3.8 trillion budget that would provide billions more to pull the country out of the Great Recession while increasing taxes on the wealthy and imposing a spending freeze on many government programs. White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said the administration believed “somewhere in the $100 billion range” would be the appropriate amount for a new jobs measure made up of a business tax credit to encourage hiring, increased

Some passengers needed routine treatment at hospitals, but Florida has not received any critical patients since the halt, said Sterling Ivey, the governor’s spokesman. Exactly what led to the suspension of medical evacuation flights remains unclear. Military officials said some states refused to take patients. Florida officials say none were ever turned away, though Crist had sent a letter Tuesday to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius saying the state’s hospitals were reaching a saturation point.

Lil’ Bit prepares for GroundHawg Day prediction BY DARRICK IGNASIAK ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

LEXINGTON – Lexington’s annual twist to Groundhog Day, which is annually celebrated Feb. 2, takes place Tuesday, with one potbellied pig set to be the center of attention. For the sixth year in Lexington and as part of the city’s GroundHawg’s Day, Lil’ Bit will predict when winter will end at the Uptown Lexington square at 7:30 a.m. “It’s a unique event,” said Mandy Connie, office manager for Uptown Lexington. “It’s a fun event.

It gives a great twist for Groundhog’s Day. In Lexington, it ties in with barbecue. We have Pigs in the City, so why not have a pig.” “Where else can you go and see a potbellied pig predicting the weather?” Connie added with a laugh. Owned by Bob and Nancy Lent and their son Tommy of Salisbury, Lil’ Bit, which weighs about 60 pounds, has become quite a celebrity. She has participated in events at the Greensboro Children’s Museum, the High Point Market and a home-

coming game at North Rowan High School. She even has her own Facebook page. “I’ve got it posted on her Facebook page that she is trying to decide what she wants to wear” for GroundHawg’s Day, said Nancy Lent. Like previous years, city officials are expected to wear tuxedos, and Lexington High’s cheerleaders are expected to be on hand to support Lil’ Bit, who has gotten five out of six predictions correct. dignasiak@hpe.com | 888-3657

The Rose Furniture warehouse facility in Archdale Business Park is one of the sites that has generated a lot of interest, according to officials.

Companies eyeing sites in Archdale, EDC chief says BY DARRICK IGNASIAK ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

ARCHDALE – Several vacant buildings in Archdale that have continued to experience “more activity” since December could be a sign of new jobs to come in 2010, according to a Randolph County economic developer. Bonnie Renfro, president of the Randolph County Economic Development Corp., told the Archdale City Council last week she is hopeful many of her clients will soon make decisions on whether

they will purchase or lease buildings that have been vacant for some time in Archdale. She highlighted several buildings currently on the market in Archdale. The former Rose Furniture Warehouse, located in the Archdale Industrial Park, has been getting “the greatest share of business and attention,” Renfro said. She said the warehouse is the building the EDC sends prospects to the most “because it meets the specifications that they have identified.” The former Bryant Electric Building, located on Balfour

Drive, also has been receiving activity from clients, Renfro said. She said the building was originally built by Duke Power as a regional office before Bryant Electric used it. “It would attract an office client rather than an industrial client,” she said. Renfro also said buildings on Swathmore Avenue, Eden Terrace and Navajo Drive have been receiving traffic. “We have seen as much activity on that building as any building in Randolph County in the last quarter of the

year,” Renfro said of the Navajo Drive building. Renfro said many of the companies looking at Archdale buildings include those in furnishings, plastics manufacturing and companies that do specialized packaging and distribution. “There are a couple of folks we are still working with that ... I would say have the greatest promise,” she said, noting their decisions could come “sooner than later.” dignasiak@hpe.com | 888-3657

School leaders need grants for pay plan BY DAVID NIVENS ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

Elsewhere...

GUILFORD COUNTY – The federal grant that pays for the bulk of the county school district’s Mission Possible plan runs out after the 201011 school year, and district officials have been working on an alternative incentives plan. The incentives proposal the Guilford County Board of Education reviewed last week would cost an estimated $4

million in the 30 Mission Possible schools, up $90,000. Last year, about $491,000 went into professional development and $3.1 million for teacher incentives. Amy Holcombe, district executive director of talent development, said that the

district could reapply for the federal grant. “We hope that federal dollars would supplement local money,” Holcombe said Saturday. “There are federal funds out there and we are eligible.” The school board implemented Mission Possible during the 2006-07 school year with an $8 million federal grant. In 2006, the University of North Carolina system and local foundations gave the school system a $2 million

grant for the Cumulative Effect math incentive program at some high schools. High Point Central High School led incentives pay last year with $51,420. Administrators said the program has helped recruit highly qualified teachers to low-performing schools. Also, teacher and principal turnover has decreased from a high of 30 percent two years ago, and school climate has improved based on annual faculty and parent surveys.

YOUR COMMUNITY. YOUR NEWSPAPER.

Staff turnover at 11.7 percent was 1 percentage point less that the district rate last year. Most Mission Possible schools have made gains in annual test scores. For example, High Point Central has gained 17 percent in geometry proficiency since 2007, and 5.1 percent in Algebra I. But there has been a decline of 4.9 percent in Algebra II and 3 percent decline in English. dnivens@hpe.com | 888-3626

HIGH POINT – Mr. William (Bill) “Honey” Allen Gailey, 75, resident of 1404 Darden St., died Jan. 26, 2010, at Kate B. Reynolds Hospice Home in Winston-Salem. Mr. Gailey was born March 12, 1934, in Randolph County, a son to Grover Sylvester and Maggie Bell Gailey. He was a veteran of the U.S. Army and retired from Pilot Freight Carriers in Kernersville. His hobbies were fishing, gardening and antique cars, but most of all he loved to share a smile and talk to people about the Lord. He and his wife Barbara were married on March 28, 1956, sharing 53 years of marriage. Definitely a match made in heaven, they weathered the good times as well as the bad times, and continued to keep their faith strong while trusting in the Lord to lead, guide and direct them as each chapter of their life unfolded. They worked as a team, sharing the love of Jesus Christ through their music ministry in nursing homes, churches and outdoor events worldwide. All of the ladies called them Barbara and Honey. They said if Barbara called him Honey they wanted to call him Honey, too. In addition to family gatherings, he enjoyed the traditional Gailey brunswick stew and Mom’s famous chocolate peanut butter cookies. His charm, humor, faith, hope and unconditional love will live in our hearts forever. Farewell to a wonderful husband, daddy, poppi and great poppi until we meet again in heaven. He was preceded in death by his parents and two sisters, Pauline G. Edmonds and Ruby G. Smith. In addition to his wife, Barbara, he is survived by three children, William Allen Gailey III, Jeffrey Scott Gailey and Teresa G.

Tuskegee Airman ace dies at 90 NEW YORK (AP) – Retired Air Force Lt. Colonel Lee A. Archer, a Tuskegee Airman considered to be the only black ace pilot who also broke racial barriers as an executive at a major U.S. company and founder of a venture capital firm, died Wednesday in New York City. He was 90. His son, Roy Archer, said his father died at Cornell University Medical Center in Manhattan. A cause of death was not immediately determined. The Tuskegee Airmen were America’s first black fighter pilot group in World War II. “It is generally conceded that Lee Archer was the first and only black ace pilot,” credited with shooting down five enemy planes, Dr. Roscoe Brown Jr., a fellow Tuskegee Airman and friend, said

Former UK ambassador in China dies LONDON (AP) – Sir Percy Cradock, the British diplomat who negotiated the terms for returning Hong Kong to Chinese rule, has died at 86. His family announced Thursday that Cradock died Jan. 22 following a brief illness. Cradock was an expert on China and was ambassador to Beijing in 1983 when Britain opened negotiations on the hand-over of Hong Kong. Though he believed he had few cards to play in the talks, Britain gained an agreement on the principle of “one nation, two systems” which preserved some of Hong Kong’s democratic and economic freedoms.

State gets a D-plus for teacher quality BY DAVID NIVENS ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

High-speed rail funding to benefit region ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

TRIAD – Funding for highspeed rail projects nationwide, announced last week by the White House, will include money for a future rail corridor through High Point and parts of the Triad. The administration of President Barack Obama last week unveiled $8 billion for high-speed rail initiatives, including $545 million for North Carolina. The money is part of the nearly

$800 billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, commonly referred to as the federal stimulus, which was passed by Congress and signed by the president nearly a year ago. The money for North Carolina will include the future high-speed rail corridor through the Triad and High Point specifically, said Brent McKinney, executive director of the Piedmont Authority for Regional Transportation.

The money for North Carolina will further development of the Southeast High-Speed Rail Corridor, a nearly 500-mile route that will allow trains to travel between Charlotte and Washington, according to the office of Gov. Beverly Perdue. “Building this high-speed rail corridor will put our people to work on critical infrastructure projects and boost local economies in North Carolina,� Perdue said.

Workman with key makes homeowner nervous

D

ear Abby: We had a repairman in our home yesterday who needed to leave to go to the hardware store for a part. My wife told him: “I have to go to pick up my son, so here’s my spare key. Let yourself back in.� Abby, we do not know this man from Adam! He easily could have copied our key – he was going to the hardware store, after all – and returned to burglarize our home, or worse. We have three young children. I realize my wife was in a tough spot. I know I should have more faith in the goodness of humanity, but I feel she put our family at risk. I’m considering having my locks changed. Your thoughts on the matter would be much appreciated. – Protective in Livermore, Calif. Dear Protective: You should not have a repairman in your home at any time unless the person is licensed, bonded, and you have checked his references. If, heaven forbid, a home is burglarized, the owners should tell the police about any “stranger� who has been on the premises. And if you would sleep better at night knowing you had changed the locks as a precaution, then that’s what you should do. Dear Abby: I know thank-you notes are in order for wedding gifts, graduation presents and special anniversary gifts

– but can the practice be overdone? A woman in our group, “Bev,� ADVICE delights in sending Dear thank- you Abby notes for ■■■ every little thing. She means well, but it makes the rest of us feel awkward. Example: One day she dropped by as I was preparing a tuna sandwich for lunch, so I offered her one. We ate them on paper plates with a cup of tea. A few days later, a thank-you note arrived, which surprised me. Abby, neither my mother nor I have ever sent or expected thank-you notes for casual visits. We’re a group of older ladies who are just pleased to have friends who gather for lunch on birthdays or help each other out with small favors. We see and talk to each other often. I don’t want to offend Bev and will reply in kind to her, but have told others a simple thank you in person or a phone call will suffice for me. They agree. What do you think? – Good Friends in Arizona Dear Good Friend: Because Bev may not be aware of your feelings on the subject, I think you should also tell HER that in the future a simple thank you in person or a phone call will suffice.

Dear Abby: I have a question I can’t ask of anyone but you. I am 84 years old, and I have been a widow for 10 years. I worked as a secretary all my life. I am torn about accepting requests from a man I used to work for to “come and visit� him. This is not an invitation for a date – dinner, a movie, a drive. It’s nothing but “a visit.� This happened before when I was divorced and living alone. The “visit� consisted of hugging, kissing and sex. That’s all. It made me feel cheap. Although I would love to be kissed and hugged by a man as handsome as George Clooney, I feel he is trying to use me. There is never any mention of a “date.� Please hasten your reply and tell me how I should handle this. – Feeling Used in Belleville, Ill.

AT A GLANCE

GUILFORD COUNTY – As state and school district officials work to improve teacher quality and pay incentives, North Carolina has received another bad grade for the public schools. The National Council on Teacher Quality gave the state a D-plus, just above the D national average grade, for its laws and regulations governing teachers. Florida had the highest grade at a Cminus and Maine, Montana and Vermont all failed. No state got an A or B. Among neighboring states, Georgia, South Carolina and Tennessee scored a C-minus. Virginia also scored a Dplus. “Unfortunately, states have tremendous ground to make up after years of policy neglect. There is much more North Carolina can do to ensure that all children have the effective teachers they deserve,� said NCTQ President Kate Walsh. The report looked at teacher compensation and whether school districts link student test scores to teacher evaluations. Guilford County Schools leaders have used Mission Possible, mostly supported by grants, in 30 schools to provide performance-based incentives for teachers in low-performing schools. State officials want to use part of an estimated $400 million in Race to the Top federal grant funds for teacher incentives. Guilford County Schools Superintendent Mo Green favors expanding performance pay, if possible. “We want to pay for good performance and pay most of the people at the school house,� Green said this week to a gathering at High Point University. The not-for-profit, non-partisan National Council concluded that North Carolina’s teacher policies largely work against improving teacher quality. Rules and regulations that govern the teaching profession too often impede rather than promote serious reform, according to the report. The report found these shortcomings:

889.9977SP00504752

The National Council on Teacher Quality’s 2009 State Teacher Policy Yearbook examined state policy across five areas, including teacher preparation, evaluation, tenure and dismissal, alternative certification and compensation. North Carolina earned the following grades, resulting in an overall grade of D-plus: • Delivering Well Prepared Teachers: D • Expanding the Teaching Pool: D-plus • Identifying Effective New Teachers: C-minus • Retaining Effective New Teachers: C • Dismissing Ineffective New Teachers: D The North Carolina Yearbook, which includes national comparisons, is available for free www.nctq.org/stpy. For questions about the report, contact Sarah Brody at (202) 393-0020 or sbrody@nctq.org.

• North Carolina’s pay and benefit policies for teachers, including the state-run retirement system, offer inadequate incentives for educators to stay in teaching. Mission Possible also is aimed at reducing teacher turnover. • Teacher evaluations do not require evidence of student learning as a dominant factor. Guilford district leaders are considering such reforms. • Too many elementary teachers are unprepared to teach reading or mathematics. The Guilford County Board of Education is reviewing a proposal that would increase pay for these teachers. • Expectations are low for what special education teachers should know, despite state and federal expectations that special education students should meet the same high standards as other students. Despite the findings, North Carolina has some bright spots, including compensating teachers for related prior work experience. dnivens@hpe.com | 888-3626

T

he chance of an adult surviving sudden cardiac arrest depends greatly on quick treatment, which includes cardiopulmonary resuscitation, or CPR. Unfortunately, almost two-thirds of those who experience cardiac arrest do not get the help they need to increase the chance of survival. Without effective CPR, a person’s chance of survival decreases 7-10 percent each FIREHOUSE minute. CHAT This leaves a limited Lee window of Knight time to help ■■■ someone who has experienced cardiac arrest. Many untrained bystanders are afraid of doing something wrong or hurting the victim, so they sometimes hesitate to become involved. In order to help rectify this problem, the American Heart Association simplified procedures with Hands Only CPR. People need to know they can help save lives. Don’t be afraid to give it your best shot. You may be surprised at the outcome. Hands Only CPR is simple. Bystanders who see someone collapse should immediately call 911 and start chest compressions by pushing hard and fast in the middle of the victim’s chest. Continue chest compressions until EMS arrives. Remember, this is for witnessed cardiac arrest. Hands Only CPR should not be used on infants, children or adults who experience cardiac arrest from respiratory causes such as drug overdose or drowning or unwitnessed cardiac arrest. These would benefit most from conventional CPR. The new recommendations put Hands Only CPR or par with conventional CPR when used on an adult who suddenly collapses. Three major studies published in 2007 show that CPR performed by bystanders had no negative impact on survival when ventilations were not used. It’s still highly recommended that the public learn conventional CPR, with which they can deal with a wide variety of cardiovascular and respiratory related emergencies, including those experienced by infants and children. Hands Only CPR is not intended for use by professional rescuers. It’s intended to increase the use of CPR by bystanders. It emphasizes quality chest compressions, which are deep compressions that allow full chest recoil at a rate of 100 per minute. For more information, visit the Web site at www. americanheart.org/handsonlycpr. We never know when cardiac arrest will strike. Use of Hands Only CPR could save a life. 24/7/365: You call; we respond.

Leg cramps destroy sleep

D

ear Dr. Donohue: When I go to bed, my calf muscles cramp and contort my feet. To alleviate the pain, I have to get out of bed, stand up and physically push down on my feet. The pain is so bad that twice I have fainted. One time I hit my head on the nightstand and required stitches. I am a man, 69 years old and in good health. – B.N.

BLONDIE

No one has an explanation for nocturnal leg cramps, something that happens to lots of people, particularly older people. Some suggest that a deficiency of potassium, calcium or magnesium is the cause, but it’s the cause only if there really is a deficiency. Few people have such a problem. Dehydration also has been blamed. Make sure that you get enough fluids during the day. Some self-help techniques can work. One of those is taking a hot bath before getting into bed. Stretching the calf muscles has stopped cramping for many. Do this stretch at least three times during the day, and again before lying down. Stand 2 to 3 feet from a wall with one foot slightly in front of the other. Put your hands on the wall and begin raising your hands on the wall until you feel a good stretch in the back leg. Hold that position for 20 seconds, and repeat for the other leg. Complete at least five stretches for both legs. When you get in bed, make sure the blankets

covering your feet are loose. Tight blankets push the feet downward and induce HEALTH a cramp. If you wedge Dr. Paul a pillow Donohue between ■■■ the soles of your feet and the end of the bed, that keeps the feet propped up and prevents cramping. Everyone cites quinine as the ultimate remedy. It was a popular remedy until it was taken off the over-the-counter market because its dangers outweigh its benefits. However, some still maintain that a glass of tonic water before retiring keeps cramps at bay. Tonic water has a small amount of quinine in it. If you do get a cramp, don’t jump out of bed. Massage the cramped muscles with one hand and pull the front of your foot toward your leg with the other. Dear Dr. Donohue: I read your article on varicose veins. Are the same treatments used for spider veins? I have them around my ankles and lower legs. – J.B. Sclerotherapy is a popular treatment for spider veins. With a fine needle, a doctor injects those veins with a solution that causes their walls to stick together. The veins collapse and disappear.

Lasers also can obliterate these veins. Dear Dr. Donohue: Lots of fruits and vegetables in the produce department of grocery stores have been shipped from South Africa. Since HIV and AIDS infect so many people there, could it be spread from those fruits and vegetables? I am sure infected people must be handling them. – C.M. Of all the things in the world to worry about, this is something you don’t have to spend a single second on. HIV (human immunodeficiency virus), the cause of AIDS, is not spread in this manner even if a thousand infected people handle your fruits and vegetables. Dear Dr. Donohue: I read your article on removing women’s facial hair. It mentioned Vaniqa. I tried purchasing this cream at a local pharmacy. They did not have it. Will you please advise me where I can obtain it? – E.M. Vaniqa cream requires a prescription. You won’t find it on the open shelves. It does remove unwanted facial hair, but it’s not the only way to deal with that problem. The manufacturer is SkinMedica, Inc., of Carlsbad, Calif. The Web site is www.skinmedica. org. If your doctor prescribes it, I’m pretty sure your drugstore will obtain it for you.

Jewelry, purses and other accessories will be featured at the Feb. 10 fashion show and lunch to benefit the North Carolina Shakespeare Festival.

Fashionable collection Vintage clothing, jewelry, accessories to be shown at Shakespeare Festival benefit BY VICKI KNOPFLER ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

H

IGH POINT – If only the clothes, hats, purses and jewelry spilling from a room at Sue Hunter’s house could tell their own stories. But they can’t, so Hunter speaks for them when she knows their history. Hunter, a board member for the North Carolina Shakespeare Festival, collects vintage clothes and accessories, and she selected some of them for a fashion show and lunch Feb. 10 to benefit Shakespeare Festival outreach education programs. During the show, Hunter will tell the stories of some of the pieces that are from the 1800s through the 1920s. One dress was the wedding attire of a mail-order bride who came to the United States. Another was worn on the “Bonanza” TV show by a girlfriend of character Joe Cartwright. Yet another belonged to Hunter’s great-grandmother, who liked to garden so much that she was buried in her flower garden in West Virginia. Hunter collected the clothes and accessories during the nearly dozen years she owned and operated Thomasville Antique Emporium. “I just fell in love with those old, vintage pieces that came in, and most have a history,” Hunter said.

“I heard all these stories and wrote them down so I wouldn’t forget them. We’re going to make the history come alive with narration (at the show).” Clothes will be accompanied by accessories, including a 100-year-old parasol, jeweled cigarette holders and hats. Hunter has wire petticoats, but they won’t be modeled. “Those jab into you, and it isn’t any fun,” she said. Hunter also will include information about the period – such as what a young woman out on the town in the roarin’ ’20s might have worn – and trivia. Do you know what a tussie mussie is? Finding models to wear the vintage pieces often is a problem because women in those days wore tight corsets and maintained 22-inch waists. But Hunter knows people who can fit into the clothes and will model them. Most items will not be for sale, but a few pieces of vintage jewelry will be available for purchase for well below their value, Hunter said. The Shakespeare Festival costume shop will supplement Hunter’s collection with a few pieces. Terrance Johns of Thomasville, accompanied by pianist Dorothy Klass, will sing music from the period to open the show. vknopfler@hpe.com / 888-3601

What: “Vintage Threads” fashion show and lunch of chicken salad and fresh fruit When: 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Feb. 10

Randolph Hospital is once again bringing QuitSmart, the smoking cessation program, to area residents who wish to gain freedom from the three chains that bind them to cigarettes and tobacco products: physical addiction, habit and emotional dependence. The first of three sessions will be held on Tuesday, followed by sessions on Feb. 16 and Feb. 23, each at 6:30 p.m. at Randolph Hospital. During the classes, participants will learn several proven techniques to ease off nicotine, as well as decide if they need medication and ultimately break the habit of smoking. QuitSmart is a proven series, and the success rate for this program is twice that of other methods. To overcome psychological dependence on cigarettes, QuitSmart teaches positive thinking, decision-firming techniques and hypnosis. While many smokers try to quit cold turkey using willpower alone, the QuitSmart System has smokers quit gradually. Nicotine addiction is reduced by switching each week to cigarettes at 40 to 50 percent less nicotine. The classes will be held in the conference room of the Home Health Building located at 341 N. Fayetteville St., Asheboro. The classes are free and funded through a grant from the Randolph Hospital Community Health Foundation. For more information or to register, call (336) 629-8836 or visit www. randolph hospital.org.

Where: NCSF’s Spirit Center, 807 W. Ward Ave. Tickets: $40, reservations required; call Joan Andrews, 841-2273, Ext. 226, 9 a.m.-noon weekdays or send e-mail to sales@ncshakes.org

Someone will want to invest in your future. ★★★ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t partner with someone who wants to call the shots. A disagreement with someone you work with, for or are indebted to will leave you feeling empty. Listen but do not let matters evolve to a situation that is irreversible. ★★★

TRIBUNE MEDIA SERVICES

If you see a situation that demands action, act. Don’t ask anybody for permission. It’ll be easier if you have to ask for forgiveness. In today’s deal, dummy played low on the first diamond, and East took the king and returned a diamond. South next led a club to dummy to try the heart finesse, and West took the king and led a third diamond. South then had three diamonds, three hearts and three clubs. “We do better if I lead a spade at Trick Two,” East told his partner, “but I couldn’t ask for your permission to shift.” “If you’d shifted, I’d have forgiven you,” West said shortly.

DAILY QUESTION

NO ENTRY

You hold: S A Q 9 5 2 H 6 3 2 D K 2 C 8 4 3. Your partner opens one club, you respond one spade and he bids two diamonds. The opponents pass. What do you say?

To beat 3NT, East must assume that West has one trick. But dummy has 12 points, East has nine and South has 16 or more, hence West can’t have good diamonds plus an entry. East must give up on the diamonds and rely on the spades. East must act decisively by leading a spade at the second trick. When West gets in with the king of hearts, his spade return

ANSWER: Your partner has “reversed” the usual order of showing two long suits and therefore shows substantial extra strength. Since he promises another bid, you need not do anything to crowd your auction. Rebid two spades (in some systems, that bid would be mandatory) or bid three clubs. South dealer N-S 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.

‘Avatar’ nears domestic box office mark BOX OFFICE NEW YORK (AP) – “Avatar” is on the cusp of toppling the domestic box-office record after leading all movies for a seventh straight week. James Cameron’s 3-D epic earned $30 million over the weekend, and its domestic total reached $594.5 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. That puts the film only about $6 million be-

hind the domestic record set by Cameron’s “Titanic” in 1998 with $600.8 million. Earlier this week, the 20th Century Fox blockbuster passed “Titanic” for the worldwide boxoffice record. It has now crossed the $2 billion worldwide mark with $2.039 billion, easily beating the $1.8 billion made by “Titanic.”

Bison abuzz over Olympic qualifier BEFORE YOU READ

This story marks the first of several about High Point’s Heather Richardson as she prepares for the Winter Olympics in Vancouver. Look for more coverage of this speedskating star in the coming days.

BOILING SPRINGS – Nick Barbour tipped in a rebound of his own shot in the final second of overtime to lift the High Point University men’s basketball team to an 82-80 win over Gardner-Webb late Saturday night. Barbour had 30 points in the game to lead all scorers and Eugene Harris scored 22 for the Panthers. “I’m really happy for my guys to get that win. We were down two different times in the second half

AP FILE

High Point’s Heather Richardson will compete in the 500, 1,000 and 1,500 meters in the Winter Olympics in Vancouver later this month. Flynn recalled, and would give presentations for a sports and entertainment marketing class. “It was giving my other students a look at what international marketing is all about, competing in another country,” Flynn said. As for working this year’s Olympics into the mix so the Bison of today can cheer on an HPC legend? “I don’t know,” Flynn admitted. “I’m going to have to tape it at home. If I could manage to find a way to bring it into my curriculum...” Jones, a business teacher and the FBLA adviser, recalled Richardson as a good student who “had a willingness to help others in class.” Richardson also was a student Parliamentarian in FBLA during the 2006-07 school year. Clark, remarkably enough, can boast of having taught not one, but two Olympians.

but we made some defensive stops and made some plays and were able to come back and pull out the victory,” said HPU head coach Barbour Scott Cherry. “A lot of guys stepped up big. Obviously Nick Barbour and Eugene Harris came up big with their points, but also David Singleton off the bench and Corey Law to get that tip at the end. I’m just really happy for the guys to get that victory.”

The High Point Central graduate has taught at her alma mater the past 14 years, but was at Jamestown Middle School when a girl by the name of Siri Mullinix just got rolling in sports. Mullinix went on to win a silver medal as keeper of the U.S. women’s soccer team in 2000. Clark said she’s followed Richardson’s progress from championship inline skater to Olympic speedskater. “I’m so proud of her. I’ll definitely be watching,” Clark offered. “Being a PE teacher, I love sports anyway. To actually know someone who’s participating, that’s a lot of fun.” Provided by a humble, quiet High Point Central grad who’s a regular ol’ student no more. shanf@hpe.com | 888-3526

High Point stayed above sea level with the win, improving to 1110 overall and 6-5 in the Big South. Gardner-Webb fell to 6-15 overall and 3-8 in Big South games. In the final minute of regulation, Harris completed a two-andone off a timeout to tie it up at 6666. Gardner-Webb answered with a layup from Auryn MacMillan and Barbour turned around with a jumper for HPU that made it 6868 with 20.8 seconds on the clock. Gardner-Webb had the next possession, but a turnover gave HPU the ball back with 3.4 seconds on

the clock. Harris tried a 3-pointer at the buzzer but missed, sending the game into overtime. In OT, Barbour hit a pair of baskets to make it 80-77 HPU with 29.6 seconds on the clock and Gardner-Webb’s Grayson Flittner answered with a trey to tie it up. As time was running down, Barbour took a jumper, Corey Law tipped it up and Barbour was able to tip it in with 0.1 on the clock to lift the Panthers to their first overtime win of the season. High Point plays at Longwood on Tuesday at 7 p.m.

WHO’S NEWS

T

onya Jones’ PowerPoint presentation showed a regular ol’ high school girl taking part in Future Business Leaders of America club activities. Janet Flynn spoke of a regular ol’ student in her marketing classes, someone who kept up with schoolwork despite lengthy absences. Pam Clark remembered a regular ol’ student in her weightlifting class, a girl who possessed a lot of physical strength but pretty much kept to herself. SPORTS Three years ago, Heather Richardson was just another Steve student at High Point Central, Hanf getting ready to graduate, “go■■■ ing to basketball games, hanging out with friends,” she said by phone late last week. And Tuesday, as her former classmates trudge through the snow on college campuses or fight bad roads on their way to work, Richardson officially transforms from ordinary to extraordinary. Tomorrow, America’s athletes make the flight to Vancouver to settle into the Olympic Village. Richardson, now 20, will compete in her first Olympics in the 500-, 1,000- and 1,500meter speedskating events from Feb. 16-21. “It’s definitely weird,” Richardson said from Salt Lake City. “When I used to go to school here, I had some inline (skating) articles every once in a while. People would say, ‘Oh, you’re going to be an Olympian.’ And I’d tell them, ‘No, inline is not an Olympic sport.’ I didn’t know then if I would be doing ice.” She made the switch and made quite a splash on the frozen surface these past few years. It’s no shock to those who knew her at Central. “It didn’t really surprise me, but it’s amazing this transition she made,” said Clark, who taught Richardson as a junior. “You just don’t hear about people doing this.” Few people at Central heard about Richardson’s prowess on inline skates, either, unless they asked and asked and asked. “The thing I remember most about Heather is she was so humble about her accomplishments,” said Flynn, who had Richardson in several marketing classes. “She wouldn’t really talk about it unless you would ask questions. I was so interested in it – I relished in her telling me about her training, her adventures – and when the other classmates would find out about it, we would get her to tell us about her accomplishments and her medals.” Flynn even used some of Richardson’s life experiences as teaching points. Inline skating competitions took Richardson all over the world and she often missed large chunks of class time. But Richardson “was an A student who made sure she got her work done,”

scrawny 12-year-old kid. I was never athletic, but the snow and slippery conditions were a great equalizer and I actually played pretty well. •I watched my sister Cindy make snow angels and then we had a spirited snowball fight. She was 5 at the time and I was 14. I was proud to be her brother then and I still am. I smile when I think of Cindy and her husband Tony and their son Michael, who’ll be 3 in March, creating

special snow memories of their own. And that doesn’t even touch on snow creme and snowmen and snow frisbee golf and snow sledding. I hope everyone stays safe and warm for the duration of this wintry blast. And I hope you all experience moments you’ll cherish for years to come.

YOUR COMMUNITY. YOUR NEWSPAPER.

– MARK MCKINNEY ENTERPRISE SPORTS EDITOR

Mardy Gilyard once worked four jobs to stay in school after losing his scholarship. The former Cincinnati star turned in an awfully strong audition for a much more lucrative career in Saturday’s Senior Bowl, racking up 103 yards receiving and catching a 32-yard TD pass in the fourth quarter to help the North race to a 31-13 victory over the South. “I’m truly blessed,” Gilyard said. “I’ve been from the brown sticky stuff at the bottom of the barrel to the cream at the top of the coffee.” In 2006, an academically ineligible Gilyard lost his scholarship and had to take jobs ranging from cutlery salesman to construction worker to pay his steep out-of-state tuition bills. He eventually won back his scholarship. Florida QB Tim Tebow fumbled twice and finished 8 of 12 passing for 50 yards in the showcase for senior NFL prospects.

Crane posts one-shot tourney win THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN DIEGO – Ben Crane made news for all the right reasons on Sunday when he closed with a 2under 70 for a one-shot victory in the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines. Crane made two birdie putts longer than 45 feet to build a big lead, then struggled with short misses as he hung on to beat Michael Sim, Brandt Snedeker and Marc Leishman. Crane had to hole a 30-inch par putt on the final hole to secure the victory. It was the third career victory for Crane and earned him another trip back to the Masters. The last time Crane was in the news was for quotes that a gossip magazine attributed to him that he never made.

KARLSSON WINS QATAR MASTERS

AP

Roger Federer of Switzerland had plenty of reasons to smile after beating Andy Murray of Scotland in straight sets on Sunday to secure his fourth Australian Open championship and 16th career Grand Slam singles crown.

Federer captures 16th major MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) – Roger Federer experienced quite a range of emotions these past two Australian Opens. A year ago, he sobbed on court after losing a thrilling final in five sets. Federer was all smiles Sunday after rather easily beating Andy Murray 6-3, 6-4, 7-6 (11) for a fourth championship in Melbourne and 16th Grand Slam title overall. “All of a sudden, it was over, and it hit me,” Federer said. “It was very much a roller-coaster.” While Murray missed a chance to end a drought for British men at Grand Slam tournaments that stretches all the way to 1936, Federer became the first Dad to win a major singles title since 2003. He also now can aim at a true, calendar-year Grand Slam, something no man has accomplished since 1969. “I’m over the moon winning this again,” the 28-year-old Swiss star said. “I played some of my best tennis in my life these last two weeks. It’s also very special – the first Grand Slam as a father.” Federer had only recently discovered he was to become the father of twins when he lost the Austra-

lian Open final in five wrenching sets against rival Rafael Nadal last year, then broke down during the presentation. This time, Federer was in control of the action pretty much throughout against Murray, and afterward, it was the 22-year-old from Scotland whose voice was breaking and who was choking back tears. “I can cry like Roger,” Murray said. “It’s just a shame I can’t play like him.” Compounding the emotions for Federer in Australia a year ago: He missed a chance to tie Pete Sampras’ then-record of 14 Grand Slam singles titles. But Federer didn’t have to wait long. He matched that mark a few months later at the French Open, where he also completed a career Grand Slam by winning a major on clay to go with his grass and hard-court titles. Then he regained his Wimbledon crown for major No. 15. In his first major after his twin daughters were born, he was upset in the U.S. Open final by Juan Martin del Potro. Now the girls are six months old, and Federer has settled into living and traveling with the family. He’ll

head to the French Open in May as the defending champion for the first time. In Melbourne, where he also won titles in 2004 and 2006-07, Federer said he’d returned to his highest level. That can’t make other players feel too good. Federer also credited the likes of Murray and Nadal for helping him lift his game. “I always knew I had it in my hand. The question is do I have it in my mind and in my legs?” he said. “That’s something I had to work extremely hard at. “Now I feel, like, obviously I’m being pushed a great deal by the new generation coming up. They’ve made me a better player, because I think this has been one of my finest performances in a long time, or maybe forever.” Federer was in his 22nd Grand Slam final – 18 of the last 19. Murray made history just by reaching his second Grand Slam final, the first British man to reach two major finals in the Open era, which began in 1968. He lost his previous final to Federer, too, in straight sets at the 2008 U.S. Open.

Murray’s loss brings tears, apology MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) – The weight of a nation’s expectations broke Andy Murray’s composure Sunday after Roger Federer broke his game. Receiving his runner-up prize, Murray’s voice faltered and he blinked away tears as he apologized to his fans at home for not bringing home the first British trophy in a men’s tennis major in 74 years. “I got great support back home the last couple of weeks. I’m sorry I couldn’t do it for you tonight but ...” He paused to gather himself, then joked: “I can cry like Roger, it’s just a shame I can’t play like him.” Behind him, Federer smiled. The new Australian Open champion was in tears after he lost last year’s

final to Rafael Nadal. He also cried at his win in 2006, when he was presented the trophy by legend Rod Laver. On Sunday, Federer won his fourth Australian Open title with his 6-3, 6-4, 7-6 (11) win over Murray but applauded the Scot for his performance. “You’re too good of a player not to win a Grand Slam, so don’t worry about it,” Federer said. The 22-year-old Murray had set a record for British men just by reaching two major finals in the Open era, but his countrymen were hoping for more. Their expectations were focused on Murray becoming the first British man since Fred Perry in 1936 to win one of the four tennis majors.

His progress through the tournament was heralded on the front pages of newspapers in Britain, and millions tuned in to watch the final. Murray obviously felt the pressure on him but said he put that aside when he played. “Everyone wishing you well from back home, that’s obviously nice,” he told reporters later. “Once you get on the court, it’s not what you’re thinking about at all.” After all, he had the world No. 1 to contend with. Murray still holds a 6-5 advantage over Federer in career headto-heads – one of only four players who can boast such an advantage – but has lost the last three.

DOHA, Qatar – Robert Karlsson of Sweden shot a 7-under 65 to win the Qatar Masters by three strokes Sunday. The 40-year-old Karlsson made seven birdies to finish 15-under 273 at Doha Golf Club for his 10th European Tour victory, his first since missing several months last season due to an eye injury. Alvaro Quiros of Spain, last year’s champion, shot a 67 to finish second. Lee Westwood had a share of the lead with three holes to play, but a bogey at No. 16 and Karlsson’s two birdies on the final two holes ended his challenge. The Englishman shot a 70 to share third place with Brett Rumford of Australia (69) at 277. Westwood had to play with a spare driver after cracking his first-choice club during the third round. England’s Oliver Wilson (71) finished in a three-way tie for fourth seven strokes behind Karlsson, along with Paul Casey (74) and Bradley Dredge (74).

GATES TAKES NEW ZEALAND OPEN QUEENSTOWN, New Zealand – Robert Gates became the 13th player to win his Nationwide Tour debut, closing with a 2-over 74 in windy conditions Sunday for a one-stroke victory in the tour’s season-opening New Zealand Open. Gates, the 6-foot-6 former Texas A&M player who played the Canadian Tour last year, had a 14-under 274 total at The Hills. Andrew Dodt birdied the final hole for a 72 to finish second.

In 24 Hours, Action Express Racing a quick winner DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) – The new Action Express Racing team showed up at Daytona International Speedway this week simply looking to take its new engine for a test run. What a run it was. Joao Barbosa powered the team to the 24 Hours of Daytona title Sunday, finishing an improbable victory in the organization’s first appearance in the sports car endurance race. “I think we would agree,” teammate Ryan Dalziel said, “we didn’t come into this thing thinking we had a realistic shot.” Neither did anybody else. The team avoided major mechanical problems and benefited from a late blunder by star-studded Chip Ganassi Racing to win by about 50 seconds. No one else was within four laps of the lead. Ganassi’s Justin Wilson was leading before he made an ill-advised stop into the garage late, believing something was wrong with the No. 01 BMW Riley. The crew didn’t find anything, and the difference was too much for teammate Scott Pruett to make up in the final two hours.

Barbosa, Dalziel, Terry Borcheller and Mike Rockenfeller deftly guided the No. 9 Porsche Riley through a rainsoaked start Saturday that caused cautions and spin outs for much of the field. They avoided accidents and poor pit stops that pushed so many others behind, and they didn’t succumb to the pressure in the final hours. Ganassi had three straight wins in the prestigious endurance race until finishing second the last two years. The biggest blow it took in this one was self-inflicted. Ganassi’s No. 02 car retired in the early morning hours because of engine failure. Drivers Juan Pablo Montoya, Dario Franchitti, Scott Dixon and Jamie McMurray had led a combined 139 of the opening 247 laps. Then suddenly, stunningly, they were out. “I did well at times and I struggled at times,” said McMurray, who lost some ground before Montoya took the wheel back and the engine failed. “I didn’t want to be the guy who runs the car off and messes it up for everybody else.”

Vaden Bosch expects to leave Titans NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee Titans defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch expects to be with a new team by the time next season begins. Vanden Bosch told The Tennessean that the Titans have given him no reason to think he’ll be resigned when his four-year, $22 million ex-

tension expires if he’s not resigned by March 15. The ninth-year pro had only three sacks this season, but votes from players and coaches got him to his third Pro Bowl since 2005, this time as an alternate. He has 43.5 sacks in his career, including 12.5 in 2005 and 12 in

2007, yet he has just 7.5 the past two seasons, and he battled injuries for much of 2008. Sunday night’s Pro Bowl ended too late to be included in today’s edition of The High Point Enterprise. Look for a story and game summary in Tuesday’s edition.

Miami slips past Virginia Tech THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Miami avoided another blown double-digit lead and snapped a four-game losing streak. The Hurricanes withstood a late Virginia Tech comeback and defeated the Hokies 82-75 on Sunday. In their previous home game, the Hurricanes squandered a 17-point advantage and lost to Boston College. “We learned from it,” Miami coach Frank Haith said. “We talked about it but we were not discouraged about it.” Virginia Tech indeed tested Miami (16-5, 2-5 Atlantic Coast Conference). The Hokies rallied from a 19-point deficit with a 24-10 run midway through the second half. J.T. Thompson scored eight points during the run, and his free throw with 7:32 remaining cut Miami’s lead to 65-60. Virginia Tech (16-4, 3-3) stayed within a five-point deficit and had a final chance to reduce a 75-70 lead with less than a minute left. But Malcolm Delaney missed a running jumper with 34 seconds remaining and fouled Reggie Johnson on a put-back attempt. Johnson converted both free throws, securing Miami’s victory. James Dews led the Hurricanes with 21 points. Malcolm Grant and Durand Scott scored 13 and 12 points as Miami avenged an 81-66 loss at Virginia Tech on Jan. 13. Dorenzo Hudson led Virginia Tech with 22 points. Jeff Allen finished with 19 points. Delaney, the conference’s leading scorer at 19.9 points per game, ended with 16 points.

REGION N.C. A&T 67, COPPIN STATE 62 GREENSBORO – Tavarus Alston scored 17 points and Robert Johnson added 16 to help N.C. A&T defeat Coppin State 67-62 on Sunday. The Aggies (7-14, 3-4 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference), who trailed 32-24 at halftime, shot 40.3 percent from the field (21 of 52). Nic Simpson added 13 points for A&T, which won for the second time in three games. The Aggies outrebounded Coppin State 37-35, and Johnson, Thomas Coleman and James Porter had six boards each. They were just 6 of 25 from 3-point range (24 percent). Branden Doughty scored 16 points for Coppin State (5-14, 0-7) and Michael Harper added 14.

TOP 25 (10) PURDUE 66, PENN STATE 46 WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Robbie Hummel needed just three minutes to squash Penn State’s upset hopes. Hummel scored nine of his 23 points during a 130 run right after the halftime break to help No. 10 Purdue beat Penn State 66-46 Sunday for its fourth straight win. The Boilermakers led 41-26 after Hummel’s shots. JaJuan Johnson scored 13 points and E’Twaun Moore added 12 for the Boilermakers (18-3, 6-3 Big Ten). Talor Battle scored 13 points, David Jackson scored 11 and Bill Edwards had 10 points and 13 rebounds for Penn State (8-13, 0-9), which lost its ninth straight.

Charlotte forward Gerald Wallace drives to the basket past Sacramento forward Jason Thompson during the first quarter of Saturday night’s game in Sacramento, Calif. Wallace scored a season-high 38 points as the Bobcats beat the Kings 103-96.

Wallace, Bobcats hold off Kings SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) – His time with the Sacramento Kings is in Gerald Wallace’s past. The Charlotte Bobcats standout calls his three years with the Kings “ancient history.” It’s been six years since Wallace was mostly a forgotten player on a championship-caliber team. But he certainly had the Kings organization remembering what they lost after a season-high 38 points and 11 rebounds led the Bobcats to a 103-96 victory over Sacramento late Saturday night. Wallace keyed the decisive third quarter when the Bobcats pulled

away by outscoring Sacramento 3413. Scoring on several uncontested baskets inside against the Kings’ uninspired defense, Wallace had 19 points to help Charlotte take a 90-67 lead into the fourth quarter. Drafted by the Kings in 2001, Wallace rarely left the bench in three seasons with Sacramento. He was picked in the expansion draft by Charlotte in 2004 and has thrived in his eighth season, becoming the first player in Bobcats history to make the All-Star game. “It doesn’t matter anymore, any feelings I have about playing here

are gone,” Wallace said. “None of the players are here anymore that I played with.” What mattered most to Wallace was the Bobcats winning their third straight road game after losing 17 of their first 20. The Bobcats are no longer a league doormat, with a 2422 record overall, including a 18-5 mark at home. Wallace made 12 of 18 shots, hit 12 of 15 free throws, had two steals, and came up with two huge blocked shots in the closing minutes. Kevin Martin scored 31 points for the Kings.

Beat LA? Not this time for Celtics BOSTON (AP) – Kobe Bryant sank a go-ahead fallaway jumper with 7.3 seconds left to give the Los Angeles Lakers a 90-89 victory over Boston on Sunday and send the struggling Celtics to their sixth loss in eight games. The Celtics, who led by 11 points

in the fourth quarter, nursed a onepoint lead until Paul Pierce was called for an offensive foul for pushing off as he jumped to shoot with 28 seconds left. Bryant, who shot just 8 for 20 in the game, dribbled down the shot

clock before stepping back from defender Ray Allen and making a basket to give Los Angeles the lead. Bryant finished with 19 points and 11 rebounds. Rajon Rondo had 21 points and 12 assists for the Celtics.

WOMEN WAKE FOREST 64, (21) VIRGINIA 57 WINSTON-SALEM – Sandra Garcia scored 21 points and made three clutch free throws for the Demon Deacons, who improved to 3-60 against the Cavaliers. Former Thomasville star Secily Ray added 14 points for Wake Forest (12-9, 4-3 ACC). Lexie Gerson scored 15 points, Ariana Moorer had 14 and Wright finished with 13 for the Cavaliers (156, 4-3), who hadn’t lost to Wake Forest since 2003.

INDIANA 67, (4) OHIO STATE 62 BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Jori Davis scored 19 points and Danilsa Andujar added the go-ahead basket with 3:45 left to help Indiana beat No. 4 Ohio State 67-62 on Sunday.

Anthony sits again, but Nuggets still beat Spurs SAN ANTONIO (AP) – After revealing that Carmelo Anthony would miss a fourth straight game Sunday, Denver Nuggets coach George Karl joked he would beg the NBA’s leading scorer one last time to play. They didn’t need him. Denver is still winning just fine. Kenyon Martin scored 27 points and Chauncey Billups had 25 points and 11 assists, leading the Nuggets past the San Antonio Spurs 103-89 without Anthony, who took anoth-

er day to rest his left ankle that he injured more than a week ago. Denver will likely get Anthony back today against Sacramento. But if not, they’ll be OK if they keep playing like this. In January, the Nuggets were one of the best. They went 12-3 for the month and 3-1 without Anthony, getting their lone blemish in a blowout Friday at Oklahoma City that snapped an eight-game winning streak. “Most of the sets are run for Melo,

so I just make myself more available,” said Martin, whose 27 tied a season high. “I can do it when he’s there, but my job is facilitating.” The Spurs were missing their own star in Tony Parker, who sat out a second game with a mild left ankle sprain. But unlike Anthony and Nuggets, San Antonio can use all the help it can get. George Hill had 17 points in place of Parker, and the Spurs finished a disappointing six-game homestand at 2-4.

Sutter, Cullen lift Canes past Blackhawks RALEIGH (AP) – The Chicago Blackhawks might have Patrick Kane, Marian Hossa, Jonathan Toews and Duncan Keith. But the Carolina Hurricanes have Cam Ward. And that was enough for one of the NHL’s cellardwellers to knock off one the league’s best late Saturday night. Ward made 39 saves, and Brandon Sutter and Matt Cullen scored in a 26-second span to help the Hurricanes beat the Blackhawks 4-2. “Cam was fantastic tonight,” Carolina coach Paul Maurice said. “I’ll say it again — every once in a while, we actually expect that out of him because we need it in a game like tonight.” Only 6,896 fans attended the game after snow and ice blanketed the area.

Sergei Samsonov and Jussi Jokinen also scored for the Hurricanes, who have won five of their last six. Ward has stopped 129 of 134 shots in his last four games. “I feel very comfortable in net,” Ward said. “But that’s a result of the guys playing in front of me. You can see the guys play extremely hard. You can see we’re playing with a lot more confidence. It just urges myself to come up with those key saves.” Hossa and Andrew Ladd scored for Chicago, and Cristobal Huet made 20 saves. Ladd, who beat Ward with a wrist shot in the third period, helped Carolina win the Stanley Cup in 2006 before he was traded to Chicago for Tuomo Ruutu last season. Chicago was 5-3 on its season-high, eight-game trip. “We’re not complaining, but we thought maybe we

deserved a better way to end it today,” Chicago coach Joel Quenneville said. Ward repeatedly foiled one of the NHL’s most dangerous offenses to negate a 41-24 Chicago shot advantage. “We had high-quality chances and had a number of them,” Quenneville said. “He was a big factor.” After Ladd tied it at 2, LaRose took a slap hot from the left boards that Sutter deflected past Huet with 10:52 remaining. On the next shift, Tom Kostopoulos rushed up the right side and centered the puck to Cullen, who tipped it past Huet’s blocker. “I think this is what we all expected,” Cullen said. “It’s disappointing that it comes so late, but at the same time, it’s there and we have a lot of pride.” Carolina is 11-1-3 when Jokinen scores.

Davos forum ends on note of humility DAVOS, Switzerland (AP) – The world’s foremost gathering of business and government leaders wrapped up a fiveday meeting Sunday with widespread agreement that a fragile recovery is under way but no consensus on what’s going to spur job growth and pre-

vent another global economic meltdown. In a group of big egos and many power players attending the annual World Economic Forum, there was even some humility and a realization that overcoming the first global financial crisis is uncharted territory. The gathering of some

2,500 VIPs in this Swiss alpine resort saw much spirited debate on whether more regulation is needed for the financial industry and how to lower global unemployment and find ways to ensure the nascent recovery is kept on course through 2010. The atmosphere of doom

and gloom that pervaded last year’s forum, which took place at the height of the economic crisis, was replaced this year by a feeling of some satisfaction that a modest recovery is under way but uncertainty about the way forward and how banks should respond. Deutsche Bank chief

Executive Josef Ackerman told an AP-sponsored closing panel that the worst of the financial and economic crisis had been managed “quite successfully” but decisionmakers now had a tough choice: “Should we take more risk, be a creative force for growth, or should

we focus on security?” Peter Sands, the CEO of Britain’s Standard Chartered Bank, said at the panel that the right balance must be struck “between making a safer banking system and a financial system that can support the sort of dynamism and growth in job creation.”

Corporate fumbles hurt Japan’s reputation TOKYO (AP) – Toyota is the latest Japanese corporate icon making headlines for all the wrong reasons. News of the automaker’s massive vehicle recalls over faulty gas pedals in the U.S. came just days after Japan Airlines, a once proud flag carrier, filed for bankruptcy, saddled

with billions in debt. Sony has lost its lead in consumer gadgets to the likes of Apple Inc. and has suffered its own quality mishaps. Honda, Japan’s No. 2 automaker, is recalling 646,000 cars worldwide because of a faulty window switch. Taken together, Japan Inc.’s stellar reputation

for quality has taken a hit – just as China is about to overtake it as the world’s No. 2 economy and rising South Korean companies compete ever more aggressively. What went wrong with the economic giant that arose from the ashes of World War II? The problems that con-

front Toyota, Sony and JAL differ, but experts say their struggles have some common themes: the perils of global expansion, a tendency to embrace the status quo, and smugness bred from success or a toobig-to-fail mentality. “Arrogance and some complacency came into play, driven by the idea

that their ranking as No. 1 producer of quality goods wasn’t at risk,” said Kirby Daley, a veteran Tokyo trader who is now chief strategist at Newedge Group, a financial services firm in Hong Kong. The global economic crisis helped to expose weaknesses, he said. “There was nowhere to hide.”

NEW YORK (AP) – New copies of Hilary Mantel’s “Wolf Hall,” Andrew Young’s “The Politician” and other books published by Macmillan were unavailable Saturday on Amazon.com, a drastic step in the ongoing dispute over e-book prices. Macmillan CEO John Sargent said he was told Friday that its books would be removed from Amazon. com, as would e-books for Amazon’s Kindle e-reader. Books will be available on Amazon.com through private sellers and other third parties, Sargent said. Sargent met with Amazon officials Thursday to discuss the publisher’s new pricing model for ebooks. He wrote in a letter to Macmillan authors and literary agents Saturday that the plan would allow Amazon to make more money selling Macmillan books and that Macmillan would make less. He characterized the dispute as a disagreement over “the long-term viability and stability of the digital book market.” Macmillan and other publishers have criticized Amazon for charging just $9.99 for best-selling ebooks on its Kindle e-reader, a price publishers say is too low and could hurt hardcover sales, which generally carry a list price of more than $24.

Selling on good news means trouble is brewing NEW YORK (AP) – It’s the spoiled brat market. Dozens of companies this past month posted blow-out earnings but instead of being thankful, investors stomped their feet and sold. The result: The Dow Jones industrial average fell 3.5 percent in January, the worst month for stocks since the depths of the bear market last year. Investors want more, and they want it now. One explanation for this surprising ingratitude is that they already had bid up stocks to a level that assumed very good profits. So when those expectations were met this past month, well, investors were less than impressed and decided to cash out. Or maybe fear is driving the selling, too. Dennis Delafield, co-manager of

the $700 million Delafield Fund, says investors are finally realizing what everyone else has already figured out: The recovery won’t be strong. “Consumers are struggling, unemployment is high and people aren’t able to use their homes to raise money,” says Delafield, whose fund has returned an average 11.8 percent annually in 10 years. “Growth will be moderate and investors are worried.” One sign of that worry: The VIX, a gauge of expected volatility of Standard & Poor’s 500 stocks, jumped 53 percent to 27.3 in the trading week ended Jan. 22. That’s nowhere near the 89.5 it peaked at in October 2008 but was still above its historical average of 18-20. In the past week, this so-called fear index fell to 24.6 but there still were signs all was not well.

On Thursday, Microsoft Corp. reported profits jumped 60 percent last quarter. Instead of cheers, it got boos. Investors wanted to see higher sales to business customers from the software giant, and so they dumped shares. Overreaction? Let’s hope so. This week will bring a flurry of data to clear up the picture, or maybe cloud it further. The Institute of Supply Management releases two reports – its purchasing manager surveys for manufacturers today and for service companies on Wednesday. On Thursday, chain store sales for January are released. On Friday comes the big one: employment figures for the same month. Too many numbers? You can focus instead on one that really matters for equity returns: U.S. debt.

Regulators shut down banks in 5 states WASHINGTON (AP) – Regulators shut down a big bank in California on Friday, along with two banks in Georgia and one each in Florida, Minnesota and Washington. The failure of Los Angeles-based First Regional Bank, with nearly $2.2

billion in assets and $1.9 billion in deposits, is expected to cost the federal deposit insurance fund $825.5 million. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. also took over the: First National Bank of Georgia, based in Carrollton, Ga., Community

Bank and Trust of Cornelia, Ga., Florida Community Bank of Immokalee, Fla., Marshall Bank of Hallock, Minn., and American Marine Bank of Bainbridge Island, Wash., with $373.2 million in assets and $308.5 million in deposits.

WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama is endorsing nuclear energy like never before, trying to win over Republicans and moderate Democrats on climate and energy legislation. Obama singled out nuclear power in his State of the Union address, and his spending plan for the next budget year is expected to include billions of more dollars in federal guarantees for new nuclear reactors. This emphasis reflects both the political difficulties of passing a climate bill in an election year and a shift from
