Local banks weigh in on loan plan BY PAUL B. JOHNSON ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

TRIAD – The irony of the White House proposal announced last week to boost lending by smaller, community financial institutions isn’t lost on First Bank President Jerry Ocheltree. The head of the Troybased bank with branches in the High Point area said community financial institutions didn’t make the risky loans, such as subprime mortgages, that precipitated the financial industry crisis more than a year ago. Now, the administration of President Barack Obama is proposing to fun-

nel $30 billion from the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP), the controversial program to prop up ailing large banks, to spur lending by smaller banks. The new program is called the Small Business Lending Fund. “The community banks had nothing to do with the stuff that happened up on Wall Street. I never made a subprime loan. But unfortunately, we’ve been painted with that same brush. Hopefully, with this program can be a great opportunity for small, community banks to increase our small business lending and help put people back to

work,” Ocheltree said. A pair of Ocheltree’s community bank executive colleagues in the Triad expressed reactions ranging from caution to skepticism about the president’s proposal. “The devil is in the details on these things. When they come out to begin with, they all sound good,” said Rick Callicutt, president and chief operating officer of Bank of North Carolina. After watching how TARP was implemented, many community banking executives are wary of a White House proposal involving access to capital with federal government entangle-

ment, said Bob Braswell, president of Carolina Bank. Until specifics on the program emerge, Callicutt can’t say whether Bank of North Carolina would want to tap into the Small Business Lending Fund. But if regulatory burdens aren’t addressed, Callicutt doesn’t believe the program will spur lending. “If a bank takes advantage of this program and it gets them $20 million of capital, and then a regulator comes in and makes them write their assets down by $20 million, the net of that is zero,” Callicutt said. | 888-3528

President Barack Obama on Tuesday formally announced the new Small Business Lending Fund, which would transfer $30 billion from the Troubled Asset Relief Program to a new program that would support lending to small businesses. The fund will be targeted at community and smaller banks, defined as assets less than $10 billion, that lend the most to small businesses and offer incentives for banks to increase small business lending.


GUILFORD COUNTY – Mary Jarrell of High Point and George Ragsdale of Jamestown don’t share political party labels, but they do share a first-hand understanding of what candidates of all stripes go through this time of year. Jarrell, a retired Democratic state legislator, and Ragsdale, a businessman active in Republican politics, say factors ranging from family commitments to the demands of a career enter into the equation when men and women decide whether or not to run for elected office. The filing period for congressional, state legislative and county elections begins at noon Monday and concludes noon Feb. 26. A separate filing period for mayoral and City Council races in High Point and Archdale will take place during July.

was to check with her family to see if they wanted her to take on the rigors of a campaign and, if successful, the time devoted to public service. “I just felt like, if you don’t have your family’s support, you’ve got no business running. And I still believe that. I knew it would take a lot of time to run and serve if you won – and my youngest son, Tom, was in junior high or high school,” Jarrell said. Her son, Tom Jarrell, now is an elected official himself as a Guilford County District Court judge. In 1977, Jarrell’s family encouraged her to run for council, though she’d never contemplated how to organize a bid for elected office. “I didn’t know anything then about putting a campaign together. But I knew enough to get some people to sponsor and endorse me. I learned if you don’t get people who say they will help you, then you better think twice about it. Because it takes an awful lot of support,” she said. Ragsdale has a different level of experience seeking public office, but echoes the sentiments of Jarrell. Ragsdale came within 257 votes out of more than 7,000 cast of upsetting state Rep. Laura Wiley, R-Guilford, in the 61st State House District in the 2008 Republican primary. It was his first run for office.

Library grant to benefit media studies ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

HIGH POINT – High Point University will use a $19,500 federal grant to purchase books and monographs on media and communication for Smith Library. The grant was one of only 185 awarded to North Carolina libraries during the 2009-10 fiscal year. The grant was awarded by the State Library of North Carolina, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources. At Smith Library the

grant will help to purchase books and other related monographs in the area of strategic communication, journalism, film and other media topics. The increased media collection will serve not only students at the university, but also the academic development of programs at the Nido Qubein School of Communication, according to university officials. “These resources will give our undergraduate population the current sources that they need to

complete projects and papers,” said David Bryden, HPU library director. “Good resources such as these coupled with the 24-hour learning environment makes for the kind of strong academic mix that we seek to develop at the university.” Communication is one of the leading HPU majors. The new $20 million school is named for HPU President Nido Qubein, an internationally known motivational speaker and author.

FAYETTEVILLE – The Army is increasing funding for its installations this year by $500 million, but Fort Bragg will continue its belt-tightening measures, officials said Friday. “The $500 million will not cover all of our projected funding shortages,” said Tom McCollum, a Fort Bragg spokesman. Army Secretary John M. McHugh and Gen. George W. Casey Jr., the Army chief of staff, said they are taking steps to increase funding for the fiscal year

that ends Sept. 30. Fort Bragg officials said last month that they expect to receive 20 percent less funding than in the 2009 fiscal year for base operating support. It’s also uncertain how the additional $500 million will be spread among the Army’s installations. “The money has got to trickle down to us,” McCollum said. “I can’t tell you what Fort Bragg’s share is going to be.” Fort Bragg garrison officials have been briefing Lt. Gen. Frank Helmick, commander of the 18th Airborne Corps and

Because of an increase in material costs, the Sunday single-copy price of The High Point Enterprise has been increased to $1.25 effective today. The Monday-throughSaturday single-copy price will remain at 50 cents, Publisher Mike Starn said, and the price of newspapers delivered to subscribers is not affected. The Enterprise, which has published Sunday editions since 1923 has not increased its Sunday singlecopy price since April 1991. “We have committed to serve our community by producing an intensely local newspaper of excellent quality every day,” Starn said.

Fort Bragg’s senior commander, throughout the week, McCollum said. Army officials pledged to protect programs for Army families, troop readiness and emergency services. “We will continue to look for efficiencies and best practices, but the bottom line is we will not shortchange our soldiers and their families,” McHugh said in a statement through the Army. The Army’s Installation Management Command will continue to work with each installation to ensure needs are met, a statement said.

He didn’t think it was right to take on a political campaign for the state House during a critical time in the upbringing of his son and daughter. Ragsdale still contemplates another run for public office – just not now. “When you look at your priorities, you’ve got to take care of raising your children and making sure there’s support at home,” Ragsdale said.




So when Wiley announced late last year that she wouldn’t seek another term in the Republican-leaning district, Ragsdale appeared a natural candidate to seek the seat in 2010. But Ragsdale, part of a political family in Jamestown dating back generations, didn’t believe this year was the right time for him to take on the effort of a campaign. “I’ve said it many times – no amount of success outside of the home can ever make up for the least amount of failure within the home.

JAMESTOWN – Guilford Technical Community College became the second college to earn the national Leah Meyer Austin Institutional Leadership Award last week for helping low-income families and minority students. The college was recognized with the $25,000 award during the annual Achieving the Dream Strategy Institute in Charlotte. The Lumina Foundation for Education in Indianapolis, Ind. created the award in honor of Austin, a former senior vice-president of the organization. Her leadership helped shape the national Achieving the Dream program, an initiative founded in 2004 to help more community college students succeed. GTCC also was recognized as one of 21 commu-

The college is scaling up pre-placement refresher courses, intensive advisement of entering developmental education students, and case management services for higher-risk developmental education students. “The college leadership, faculty, staff and students have revolutionized the

culture of the school,� said William Trueheart, CEO of Achieving the Dream. “We have achieved this through a data-driven program by focusing on retention through tutoring to help our students create success and achieve their dreams,� said GTCC President Don Cameron. The college piloted 15 projects, 11 of which continue today. One of the most productive programs has been GTCC’s reorganized orientation process which includes a more comprehensive three-hour orientation. “This award underscores the concerted effort GTCC is making to insure that every student who needs help with coursework gets targeted guidance and support,� said Shirley Frye, GTCC trustees board chairperson.

Shiite militants kidnap American in Iraq AP

In this undated image made from a video posted on a militant Web site, a man believed to be missing civilian contractor Issa T. Salomi is seen.

BAGHDAD (AP) – A missing Iraqi-American contractor was kidnapped by Shiite militiamen who lured him into central Baghdad by promising to help him find distant relatives, an Iraqi defense official said Saturday. A Shiite extremist group claimed responsibility for the Jan. 23 kidnapping and posted a video online that

shows a man wearing military fatigues reading a list of demands that includes the release of militants, the prosecution of Blackwater guards and an immediate American troop withdrawal. A high-ranking Iraqi defense official and an American intelligence official identified the man in the video as Issa T. Salomi, the missing con-

tractor. Both spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to release the information. The Iraqi defense official said Salomi was abducted in the central Baghdad district of Karradah. He said Salomi is of Iraqi origin and that his abductors led him to believe they would help him find family members.



Red Cross staffer freed after months in Chad PARIS – A French agronomist who was kidnapped in Chad in November was freed Saturday in Sudan after 89 days in captivity, International Committee of the Red Cross reported.

KIEV, Ukraine – The loser in Ukraine’s presidential runoff election probably won’t concede defeat and may turn to court battles or street protests, observers said Saturday as both campaigns accused each other of possible vote fraud. Pro-Russian opposition leader Viktor Yanukovych polled 10 percentage points ahead of Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko in the first round of voting on Jan. 17. Most analysts say the final vote on Sunday will be closer and expect both sides to resort to legal maneuvering and demonstrations if defeat looms.

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Bernice Chamblain keeps a machete under her frayed mattress to ward off sexual predators and one leg wrapped around a bag of rice to stop nighttime thieves from stealing her daughtersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; food. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s barely slept since Haitiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s catastrophic earthquake Jan. 12 forced her and other homeless women and children into tent camps, where they are easy targets for gangs of men. Women have always had it bad in Haiti. Now things are worse. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I try not to sleep,â&#x20AC;? says Chamblain, 22, who lost her father and now lives in AP a squalid camp with her A woman watches a food distribution operation as U.S. mother and aunts near the Army soldiers of the 82nd Airborne Division provide sePort-au-Prince airport. curity in Port-au-Prince, Saturday.

Christian freed by North Korea BEIJING (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Robert Park strode illegally into North Korea on Christmas Day, shouting â&#x20AC;&#x153;I brought Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loveâ&#x20AC;? and carrying a Bible. When the communist regime released him Saturday, he left silent Park and pale. As the American missionary made his way home to California, loved ones wondered how 43 days of detention in the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most secretive nation had taken their toll on the young man who so brashly demanded religious and political reforms. Park, his eyes almost closed, made no comment as U.S. consular officials guided him to a transit area in Beijingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s airport after his morning arrival from Pyongyang. He was to leave later in the day for the United States.

Teen matador kills 6 bulls CACERES, Spain (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A 16-year-old Spanish matador killed six bulls in one afternoon Saturday, pulling off a feat normally attempted only by seasoned veterans and winning trophies for his skill â&#x20AC;&#x201C; ears from animals he had just slain. Jairo Miguel Sanchez Alonso, who nearly died from a horrific goring in Mexico in 2007, smiled broadly and waved to a friendly hometown crowd after a pageant that took about two and a half hours.

Black box of Ethiopian jet located BEIRUT (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Search crews have located the black box under parts of the tail of the Ethiopian Airlines jet that crashed into the Mediterranean Sea last month, Lebanonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s transportation minister said Saturday. The Boeing 737 crashed Jan. 25 minutes after takeoff from Beirut in a fierce thunderstorm. All

90 people on board died. Transportation Minister Ghazi Aridi said the black box has been located at a depth of 150 feet (45 meters) off the coastal village of Naameh just south of Beirut airport. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Its location has been determined and efforts are under way to find the best means to retrieve it,â&#x20AC;? he told The Associated Press.

IQALUIT, Nunavut (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Top finance officials of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seven major industrial countries pledged Saturday to work to calm global markets and maintain government stimulus to sustain an economic rebound. Speaking for the group, Canadian Finance Minister Jim Flaherty said leaders of the Group of Seven countries also dis-


cussed strategies they will use to withdraw stimulus once the recovery strengthens. But Flaherty and other leaders did not indicate they were planning to propose any further stimulus beyond what they have already unveiled. They said they would push ahead with those efforts this year. Flaherty spoke as the G-7 officials ended a two-

day meeting in the Canadian Arctic. They met as financial markets were roiled this week over fears that a European debt crisis could derail the global recovery. The Canadian finance minister said the leaders discussed the debt problem in Greece. Investors fear Greece may default or require a bailout from already strapped European governments.

President: ‘Snowmageddon’ blankets DC



FAA: 2 planes collide in Colorado, killing 2 BOULDER, Colo. – The Federal Aviation Administration says a plane towing a glider and another aircraft collided in Colorado, killing at least two people. FAA spokesman Mike Fergus says the glider, described as a sailplane, apparently disconnected after the Saturday afternoon collision and landed safely a short time later. Fergus says the two small planes crashed. One witness, Christian Sterner, said he saw two big balls of flames, including one attached to a parachute that fell slowly to the ground.

WASHINGTON (AP) – Mid-Atlantic residents were buried Saturday by a blizzard the president jokingly called “Snowmageddon,” and those brave enough tried to clear a path through the wet, heavy mounds of thigh-high snow. The snow was falling too quickly in the nation’s capital for crews to keep up, and was easily one of the worst snowstorms for D.C. in modern history. Officials begged residents to stay home and AP out of the way so that roads Tanner Sutton, 12, goes over a bump while riding his rubber inner tube in Phillips- might be cleared in time for burg, N.J.,on the snow that fell overnight from the winter storm that blanketed the work Monday.

The storm toppled trees and knocked out power to hundreds of thousands of customers in Washington, Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania and New Jersey. The situation was the same in West Virginia, where some 400 National Guard troops were helping with snow removal. People from Pittsburgh, across Pennsylvania to Philadelphia, New Jersey and West Virginia were dealing with snow measured in feet.

NASA sets for pre-dawn space shuttle launch CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) – NASA aimed to launch shuttle Endeavour in the early morning darkness today with the last major pieces of the International Space Station. Stiff wind rattled the launching site Saturday afternoon, but forecasters were hopeful the gusts would subside in time for the 4:39 a.m. liftoff. The odds of good weather were 80 percent. Endeavour is loaded with a new room for the space station, as well

as an observation deck. Once both of those are installed, the orbiting complex will be 98 percent complete. The six astronauts assigned to the mission slept through the afternoon. They will work the graveyard shift during the 13day flight. It was expected to be the last shuttle launch in darkness, with only five shuttle missions left after the new direction announced by President Barack Obama.

Alaska dentist fixes injured eagle’s broken beak ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) – An Alaska dentist has given a bald eagle a unique beak – using a temporary crown, sticky poster putty and yellow highlighter. The bird was found in December with severe damage to its beak, apparently from fishing line that wrapped around it and started cutting into it. Cindy Palmatier at the Bird Treatment and Learning Center

says staff there decided to turn to dentist Kirk Johnson, who thought of patching up the beak with the same material used to make temporary crowns for people. The “crown” is being held on with poster putty, and Johnson colored it in using highlighter to give it a yellow tint. The bird center says the eagle is doing just fine but won’t be able to return to the wild.

Palin e-mails suggest husband’s role in governing JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) – E-mails shed new light on Todd Palin’s role while his wife was Alaska’s governor, showing that the one-time oil field worker’s advice was sought on board appointments and suggesting he was close to matters related to state government, his wife’s image and politics. Relatively few of the messages obtained as part of a public records request were sent by Todd Palin himself. Rather, his personal e-mail address is included on messages sent by administration staff, top aides to then-Gov. Sarah Palin and Palin on topics ranging from use of the state plane to day-to-day governing issues and oil and gas legislation that Palin made a hallmark of her 212⁄ years in office.

But the e-mails, first reported by, together provide fresh insight into what many had suspected was a highly influential role played by the self-proclaimed “First Dude.” They also reflect the at-times fierce loyalty that Todd Palin and others close to the former governor felt, particularly amid tensions with lawmakers and criticism in the media. “Have Meg take the news miner off the press release address list for a few days,see how long it takes them to realize their not on the list,” Todd Palin wrote to his wife in an e-mail, dated June 21, 2007, after the governor questioned the fairness of an editor in Fairbanks Daily News-Miner.

It’s not clear from the e-mails whether there was a policy, unspoken or otherwise, that Todd Palin be copied in on certain matters either because he was a key adviser or a mere backstop to the governor. Several former aides to Sarah Palin declined comment Friday. In November 2008, then-Palin chief of staff Michael Nizich wrote in response to a public records request denial that Todd Palin, “as first gentleman, is a proper advisor.” “There is nothing inappropriate about the spouse of a chief executive playing such a role,” Nizich wrote. “The governor is absolutely entitled to involve him in policy matters as an advisor as she sees fit.”

LOS ANGELES (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The circus that swirled around Michael Jackson when he was alive rolled on Friday as the doctor expecting to be accused of involuntary manslaughter in his death planned to stage a surMurray render at a courthouse but called it off after prosecutors announced charges will be filed next week. Instead of the promised appearance by Dr. Conrad Murray and his lawyers, a crowd of reporters and photographers gathered outside the courthouse only to get a drenching from a rainstorm.

Actor Charlie Sheenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mercedes is towed out of a ravine after it was found overturned hundreds of feet down a cliff near his home early Friday.

Police: Sheenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vehicle stolen, crashed in ravine LOS ANGELES (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A Mercedes that Charlie Sheen reported stolen from his Sherman Oaks home was found overturned hundreds of feet down a nearby cliff early Friday, but thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no evidence anyone was in the car when it went into the ravine, police said. A Bentley was later found off the same road nearby Friday afternoon, and police said three other cars reportedly were broken into in the same area. Police were investigating if the incidents were linked. Police got an emergency call around 4 a.m. from an OnStar-style alert system that calls emergency of-

ficials when there is a problem with the vehicle that may require assistance, Officer Wendy Sheen Reyes said. At about the same time, Sheen called police to say his four-door MercedesBenz had been stolen, Officer Bruce Borihanh said. Police and firefighters found the car 300 to 400 feet down a cliff, upside-down in the brushy ravine. They searched the area on foot and with an infrared-equipped helicopter but found nobody in or around the car, Borihanh said.

GUILFORD COUNTY – Magnet Schools of America has named Johnson Street Global Studies in High Point and four other Guilford County magnet and choice schools as schools of merit for 2010. Johnson Street was among a select group named Schools of Excellence by the organization. Jones Spanish Immersion Elementary, the Early College at Guilford, Weaver Academy and Washington Elementary were named Schools of Distinction. Johnson Street operates on an extended-year calendar offering 200 days of instruction in global studies to as many as 370 elementary and middle school students in kindergarten through eighth grade. As a magnet school, Johnson Street is eligible for enrichment grants to support global studies and other programs. Magnet Schools of America recognizes the top magnet schools in the country annually. Last year, Johnson Street was a school of distinction. MSA selects the schools based on their commitment to high academic standards, curriculum innovation, successful desegregation/diversity efforts, specialized teaching staffs and parent and community involvement. In addition to the curriculum followed by all schools, the global studies magnet offers additional countries at each grade level. Natives of other countries are regular guests at the schools for assemblies and classroom visits. “Our students are fortunate to have access to magnet programs like performing arts, early colleges, Montessori and global studies that are recognized on the national level,” said Michelle Ungurait, GCS director of magnet and choice schools. “We commend our principals and teachers for creating premier learning experiences for the students in these programs.” Meanwhile, district officials are reviewing themes for Montlieu Math and Science Academy and Parkview A+ in High Point. Montlieu would focus on technology, and Parkview A+ would offer more arts specialties if the Guilford County Board of Education approves suggested changes. Montlieu and Parkview A+ are on the district’s list of 10 lowperforming schools.


Magnet fair: 9 a.m.-noon, Feb. 13 at the Greensboro Coliseum Pavilion. Applications will be available. Applications: Will be accepted from Feb. 13 through March 12 at 5 p.m. Assignment: Based on a lottery system, while some schools require certain academic criteria, an interview or an audition. GCS has 44 magnet and choice schools with 50 programs. For more information, go online to magnet.


Only the walls of the old Church Street School in Thomasville still stand after it burned in 2000. The owner of the site, which is on the National Register of Historic Places, and a developer have proposed turning the building into multi-unit housing for the elderly, complete with an on-site pharmacy and outdoor theater.

Owner proposes new use for historic site BY DARRICK IGNASIAK ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

THOMASVILLE – Thomasville officials have heard of several uses from developers regarding the old Church Street School building, but no projects have been as “elaborate” as one recently presented to the city, said City Manager Kelly Craver. Craver said a developer recently approached the city concerning plans to redevelop the property as multi-unit housing for the elderly with an on-site pharmacy, recreational facility and outdoor theater. The Church Street School building, which is on the National Register of Historic Places, is owned by James Moses of Norfolk, Va. “The Church Street School

burned in 2000,” Craver said. “There have been so many, many folks who approached us along the way regarding this property. The facade of the front of the building is still standing. The gymnasium is still standing. ... They’ve all made mention that they want to preserve the front facade of the building.” The Church Street School building, which opened for students in 1938, served the African-American community until Thomasville City Schools integrated. The building was used as a middle school until Thomasville Middle School was built in 1975. According to Craver, the Church Street School building is located on a 10-acre tract. Before Moses and developer Major Sanders can proceed with

the project, the land would need an upgrade to its water lines, Craver said. Phillip Shu and Associates, an engineering firm hired by Moses, has requested that the city apply for a N.C. Rural Center grant to help fund the upgrades. Craver said he plans to meet with a representative from the Rural Center to discuss the project, as well as other needs for Thomasville. “The Rural Center grants are typically available for cities that are 10,000 in population or less,” Craver said. “In recent years, there have been waivers granted. We are going to try to participate by helping them improve their water system, which will also help our system as well.”

Courtney always was kind to people and carried himself in a professional manner, Bohi said. “In a very low-key way, he did a phenomenal amount for hundreds of people through the Merchants Association, many of them who may not have even known it,” Bohi said. “Danny had a great loyalty to High Point. He did as much as he could in so many ways to help the city. I certainly respected him for his service,” said George Clark, a retired local insurance agent. | 888-3528

MELBOURNE, Fla. – John Adolphus McFarland, Jr., 85, of Melbourne, Florida passed on to eternal life on Wednesday, January 27, 2010, after a long battle with cancer. John was born on August 18, 1924, in Durham, NC to John A. McFarland, Sr. and Annie Lee Evans McFarland. His family moved to High Point, NC in 1932. Upon graduation from High Point High School in 1943, John volunteered for military service with the U.S. Army Air Corps, serving in World War II in the Philippine Islands and New Guinea, primarily as a weatherman. John reached the rank of Sergeant and was awarded two Bronze Campaign Stars. After VJ Day, John attended the University of Iowa, receiving his Bachelor of Science in Commerce on August 4, 1948. The next day he married the love of his life, Dorothy Evelyn Crawford, and two days later started his career with S.S. Kresge in St. Louis. John managed a number of Kresge and KMart stores throughout the Midwest, Arizona, and California, eventually retiring in 1984, after having taken only a half-day of sick leave in 36 years. John always kept his family and faith at the forefront of his life, focusing on family vacations and church activities. One of his proudest achievements was taking his family to visit all 50 State Capitol Buildings before his son completed college. Upon retirement, he served many years in the business office of Eau Galle First Baptist Church. He was also an avid golfer. John is survived by his wife of 61 years, Dorothy; their son, David (JoAnn) and granddaughters Heather and Holly, of Merritt Island, FL; brother James (Barbara); sister Elsie; brother Myrle (Sharon), all of NC. The family wishes to thank their friend Linda Johnson for her extraordinary efforts in caring for John in his final years.

Donations should be made to Wuesthoff Hospice or Eau Galle First Baptist Church building fund.


RALEIGH – Susan Hill, a national women’s rights advocate and the owner of several abortion clinics around the country, died last week from breast cancer. Hill, who made her home in Raleigh, was 61. Hill focused on establishing clinics in rural areas, where women had no access to abortion services, and opened more clinics than anyone else in the United States, sometimes drawing 1,000 protesters at a time. She sued protesters 34 times for blocking entrances and physically preventing women from going

into the facilites. “She’s probably the toughest person I ever knew,” said her older brother Dan Hill, who lives in Durham. “She’s the only person I knew who wore a bulletproof vest to work or was supposed to wear one to work. People really wanted to kill her, and she never flinched.” In 2007, Hill received the Nancy Susan Reynolds award from North Carolina for public advocacy in the face of personal risk. She also received the North Carolina Planned Parenthood Margaret Sanger Award and the Raleigh National Organization for Women Award.

NC cereal maker caters to people with allergies DURHAM (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; At Custom Choice Cereal, customers can pick from a variety of cereal mixes with names like Fruitfool, Southern Hospitality and Belizean Bliss. Other customers like to concoct personal mixes from a set of ingredients. They can give their recipes a name, and some customers have created CinnaApriPump, flaked out, HazyCranPear â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Nola, Blue Straw and Mikeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s revenge. Some of the monikers may have an intended levity, but the product that Custom Choice Cereal is marketing is serious food

While the product has health benefits for those with celiac disease, the overriding goal is to create cereals that taste good. for people diagnosed with celiac disease, or customers who have allergies to gluten. People with celiac disease suffer from digestive disorders when they eat foods with gluten, a type of protein found in wheat, barley and rye. All the cereal grains at Custom Choice are tested and guaranteed to be gluten-free, and free of any cross-contamination with grains containing gluten, said business owner Hajo Engelke. Common sub-

stitutes for grains with gluten are corn and rice. Custom Choice offers customers three base grains â&#x20AC;&#x201C; cinnamon granola, cornflakes and Good Morning Flakes (organic cornflakes enriched with flax, buckwheat, quinoa and amaranth). Engelke, 28, who came to the area from his native Germany in 2007, and partner Patrick Williams, 29, started the online business in October. The business idea emerged when both were students in a course in entrepreneurship titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Launching the Venture,â&#x20AC;? at UNCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s KenanFlagler Business School. A teacher in the class saw Engelkeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business plan, and suggested that he market a gluten-free product. Knowing people who had wheat allergies or issues with gluten also helped spur the business, he said. Williams offered his help with getting a new company off the ground. (Williams has since taken a job in digital media in Greenville, N.C., but will continue to advise the company.) â&#x20AC;&#x153;To have this chance of going down the path of starting a business with a friend is just very rare,â&#x20AC;? Williams said. While the product has health benefits for those with celiac disease, the overriding goal is to create cereals that taste good. People kept telling Engelke that â&#x20AC;&#x153;the moment you take gluten out of the food â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it becomes tasteless almost.â&#x20AC;? In addition to base grains, customers can add dried fruit (among the selections are apples, cranberries, strawberries, goji berries), along with nuts


Hajo Engelke prepares and mixes a gluten-free cereal with a combination of dried fruits, nuts and seeds at Custom Choice Cereal, where the customers choose their own mix. and seeds (almonds, sunflower seeds, macadamia nuts and others). Engelke does not have celiac disease, but customers with the ailment have told him they like having someone without the disease â&#x20AC;&#x201C; someone who can compare the taste of the non-gluten product to regular cereal â&#x20AC;&#x201C; making the product. Engelke also is a cereal eater, and has taste preferences. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really like coconut. I really like pecan pieces,â&#x20AC;? he said. He also recently discovered that pistachios add flavor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have to say, try it, you will not want cereal without pistachios again,â&#x20AC;? Engelke said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel like weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve created a very close substitute for regular cereal,â&#x20AC;? Williams said. He attributes the taste to the use of grains and other ingredients that are naturally gluten-free. The business right now is pretty much a oneperson operation, with Engelke acting as CEO, accountant and mixer.

Landslide damages 4 houses MAGGIE VALLEY (AP) – A landslide has damaged or destroyed at least four houses in the North Carolina mountains, but no injuries were reported. Multiple media outlets reported the mud began moving around 7 p.m. Friday, heading down a road near Maggie Valley. Haywood County Sheriff Bobby Suttles says the landslide started at the top of the mountain, crossing the road three times. Authorities immediately began evacuating about 40 other people living on the mountain.

Universities report steep decline in gifts RALEIGH (AP) – Donations fell sharply at several of North Carolina’s larger colleges and universities as the economic downturn seemed to keep the number of larger gifts down. The trend has meant schools have canceled or postponed construction projects and are cutting the amount of money available for scholarships. Duke University saw one of the biggest declines in the fiscal year that ended last June, with donations down 22 percent. But that steep drop also come off a record year for gifts, university spokesman Michael Schoenfeld told the News & Observer of Raleigh. The lack of money has forced the university to

postpone work on a new campus development project. But Duke continues work on a $20 million residence hall and $15 million in central campus improvements, Schoenfeld said. “It’s not like if financial aid runs out, that’s it,” Schoenfeld said. “We’ll meet our commitments. If that means adjusting other parts of the budget, we will.” Giving at North Carolina State University is down about 15 percent, but leaders think the decline is just temporary, said Ken Sigmon, associate vice chancellor for development. “We’re not hearing a lot of ‘no’ answers. We’re hearing a lot of ‘not right now,’ ” Sigmon said. The university had to

find $820,000 from other sources last year to cover a shortfall in giving for endowment-funded scholarships and as a precaution, the school also temporarily stopped awarding some renewable scholarships to incoming freshmen this fall, said Julie Mallette, associate vice provost and director of scholarships and financial aid. The University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill saw a 7 percent decrease in donations, and the school has changed its focus to seeking small donations from more donors, said Matt Kupec, vice chancellor for university advancement. “The big home-run right now is not as likely to happen,” Kupec said, referring to gifts of $5 million or more.

Lowery remains in hospital ATLANTA (AP) – Civil Rights icon the Rev. Joseph Lowery remains in stable condition at Emory University Hospital Midtown as he continues improving from a pulmonary embolism. Hospital spokesman Lance Skelly said Saturday that there’s no “time table” for Lowery to be discharged from Emory Midtown. Skelly tell the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that doctors are reviewing Lowery’s condition “day to day” in deciding

when he should be allowed to go home. Lowery, who stood with the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. during the civil rights movement, was admitted to the hospital a week ago with a blood clot in his lung. The 88-year-old offered the benediction at President Barack Obama’s inauguration last year and received the Presidential Medal of Freedom several months later. Lowery co-founded the Southern Christian Leadership Conference along with King.

A firefighter walks past the burned Russell Memorial United Methodist Church in Wills Point, Texas, Thursday. The seventh church fire this year in east Texas destroyed the sanctuary of the church.

String of Texas church arsons worries congregations TYLER, Texas (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Eight Texas churches barely 150 miles apart have caught fire since New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day, putting pastors and congregations on edge and on guard wondering whether theirs is next. Authorities determined seven of those fires were intentionally set and they are investigating one that broke out Thursday as a possible arson. There have been no reported injuries or arrests, and federal officials arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t saying whether thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a connection. Most people in these parts canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help but think they are. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think everybody is expecting more of these, to tell you the truth,â&#x20AC;? said pastor David Mahfood, whose Baptist church in Tyler was destroyed in a Jan. 16 fire. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the

worst is probably behind Tyler, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d worry about other cities.â&#x20AC;? Six of the seven arsons were just nine days apart, sending many congregations in east Texas scurrying to install security systems and prompting volunteers to keep close eyes on church properties from dusk to dawn. Federal and local authorities have released scant details and say they need more information. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These things are painstakingly slow because a lot of evidence is lost in fire scenes,â&#x20AC;? said Tom Crowley, a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives spokesman. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still working it, but we could use more leads.â&#x20AC;? The fires have struck a region where Christian stations fill the radio dial and an area newspaper

runs a Bible verse on the front page every day. All seven churches varied in size and denomination. Some were Baptist. One was a red-bricked Christian Scientistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s church nestled among stately homes. Another was a nondenominational church on the outskirts of town. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The shock of it, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so outside the norm,â&#x20AC;? said Lloyd McCaskill, pastor of a church in Tyler that has given Mahfoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s congregation a temporary home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To try to get into the mindset, why would someone want to do this?â&#x20AC;? Athens was the site of the first arson Jan. 1, and two more churches burned 10 days later in that town of about 12,000. After that, blazes blackened two churches about 35 miles away in Tyler.

LEONARD PITTS: America’s paradox gets Black History Month attention. TOMORROW

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


Officers’ split-second decisions alter lives forever Please allow me to convey my heartfelt appreciation to our local men and women who have chosen law enforcement as their career (or calling). It was with great consternation I read Wednesday’s article regarding the Guilford County deputy sheriff. While responding to a call involving a young male displaying threatening behavior, the officer was forced to make a life-or-death decision. Regrettably, the altercation resulted in the death of a 17-year-old boy. My heart ached as I thought of this officer faced with the reverberation of this life-changing event. Serving us, the public, his life is now altered forever. I know all law enforcement officers are constantly aware of the danger they face, however, I can’t imagine any professional instruction preparing one for the aftershock of an experience such as this. This article also resurrected thoughts of the recent incident where an Archdale police officer was faced with the same split-second decision. Over the past two years, I have been trying to resolve an infraction against me through the court system. Having made numer-



ous trips to civil court, I always depart with a sense of sadness and empathy. Saddened by the fact that so many people just refuse to do what is right, and empathetic to the frustration that our law enforcement officers must experience. They do their job well and watch as our less than desirable legal system negates their hard work. I wish to express my gratitude to all law enforcement officers, and I feel sure there are many others who would echo my sentiments. Be encouraged to keep doing what you do, and do it well; thus knowing your good deeds





The High Point Enterprise is committed to this community ... and always will serve it by being an intensely local newspaper of excellent quality every day.

on’t be offended if you ask a member of The High Point Enterprise news/ sports/photo staffs to participate in your LinkedIn and/or Facebook or other such sites and they turn you down. It’s nothing personal (in most instances). Most newspaper journalists, especially reporters, shy away from “endorsing” or “recommending” those who seek such support for some program, honor, etc., for ethical and credibility reasons. When we don’t respond affirmatively to such requests, we try to decline politely but, sometimes, persons making such requests are offended. It’s not just an “Internet thing,” either – many of us turn down such requests that come by phone, fax or mail. For example, one Enterprise reporter told me he had a criminal attorney friend from another part of the state who asked him to write a blurb for his first book, and the reporter had to tell the new author, that despite their 20-year friendship, the reporter couldn’t, in good conscience, do something like that. A paragraph in the Enterprise’s Employee Handbook explains clearly how journalists should conduct themselves – especially when politics is involved. It reads: “Editorial department employees should be sensitive to potential conflicts of interest issues which may arise as a result of active political involvement. Contact the editor or publisher to review any potential conflicts.” To my mind, even though company policy states that “all (employee) activities of participating in the electoral process and supporting political candidates must be conducted on an employee’s own time and outside company property” and “employees must not give the impression they represent the company or are acting on its behalf while taking part in political campaigning,” to retain credibility, no journalists should participate in such activities. That’s why I don’t sign petitions, donate to or otherwise participate in political campaigns. Yes, the Enterprise – as an institution – endorses candidates for political office and referendum proposals but only after checking records, backgrounds and holding interviews of candidates and thoroughly examining referendum proposals, and determining which is best for the community as a whole. Determination on whom and what to endorse is made by Opinion Page Editor Vince Wheeler (and Publisher Mike Starn, should he want to be involved) and me. Wheeler and I share the endorsement editorial writing – again providing the voice of the institution rather than individual personal preferences. Requests for endorsements and/or

recommendations certainly have multiplied dramatically in the Internet age. Enterprise reporter Paul B. Johnson explains his reaction to such requests. “I find most people understand why I can’t endorse or recommend someone,” Johnson OPINION says. “But I’ve had a couple just seem miffed, like I’m Tom making an excuse, even Blount though I tell them I’m under ■■■ strict rules that we can’t shed objectivity lightly. You can’t reach some people, as Strother Martin said in ‘Cool Hand Luke.’ ” Allow me, through words from Wikipedia, to remind those who have seen the film or perhaps enlighten those who haven’t. “The phrase ‘What we’ve got here is (a) failure to communicate’ is a famous line from the 1967 film Cool Hand Luke (that led up to Johnson’s “you can’t reach some people” comment. “There are actually two close variants of the (failure to communicate) line that are spoken at different points in the film. Nuances of accent, delivery, and intonation aside, they are as follows: “1. ‘What we’ve got here is ... failure to communicate.’ – spoken by the captain, the imperious prison warden played by Strother Martin “2. ‘What we’ve got here is a failure to communicate.’ – spoken by Luke, the reprobate inmate played by Paul Newman near the film’s climax “The context of the line, as it is first delivered in the film, is a young prisoner, Luke, refusing to sacrifice his dignity under the instruction of the brutal prison captain. Having just been captured and returned to the chain gang after a clever and daring but all too brief escape, Luke mocks the despotic affectations of benevolence on the part of the captain. The outraged captain lashes out and strikes Luke, who then falls and rolls down the hill. While Luke remains slumped in the culvert beside them on the roadway, the frustrated captain recovers his composure and delivers the line, pronouncing his summary judgment of the problem: that it can be nothing more than a matter of Luke failing to understand the one-way nature of the communication that is incumbent on his present demotion in social status. The line is an opening for a warning speech directed to the other prisoners who are watching. The captain goes on to say: ‘Some men you just can’t reach.’ ” Don’t let yourself be one of those men (or women).

Get going on downtown’s D Plan B M

ost lawyers know you should never ask a question to which you don’t know the answer. And planners constantly should be reminded that before putting all of their eggs in the Plan A basket, they should have a Plan B ready to put into action should Plan A be rejected. If that had been the case locally, the City Project planning for downtown revitalization wouldn’t be stalled and basically starting over from scratch now that High Point City Council has tossed the Market Overlay District effort into the trash can. We’re glad that Aaron Clinard, chairman of the City Project, and his cohorts apparently aren’t sitting around brooding about what might have been and, instead, are planning to invite furniture showroom owners and others who have shown interest in and given their two-cents-worth on revitalizing the downtown area to a “brainstorming meeting” sometime this month. We hope that meeting comes about sooner rather than later, before the juices that were flowing so freely at Council’s public hearings turn sour and waste away. Hopefully, all of those who rallied against the poorly presented Market Overlay District proposals, while at the same time offering a variety of alternative suggestions for revitalizing the downtown area, will turn out and really help get the ball rolling in the right direction rather than merely feeling self-satisfied with their don’t-fence-me-out victory. The City Project’s first initiative – to try to pull together a mixed use neighborhood concept for Uptowne (the area along the Main Street corridor from Ray Avenue on the south to State Street on the north) – was well received at first blush, but the true test will be the progress that is made in that effort this spring and summer. Party on the Plank should help, as should another series of concerts/street parties similar to the highly successful Beach Music Blast in Uptowne. But, City Project folks and their various partners in the overall effort can’t walk away from the earlier promise that the Washington Street corridor would get considerable attention early and often in the revitalization process. To get more people and money – a critical ingredient – involved, City Project folks quickly must provide the entire High Point community with something more tangible than directional signs and recitation of good ideas to be implemented in various parts of the city. Actions speak much louder than words.

12, and in one night, the United States raised $58 million for relief efforts for Haiti. This is a great and wonderful thing that the U.S. can come together and really help out somewhere where such devastation has occurred, but where is the help at home? Although we are not suffering as much devastation as Haiti is, aren’t we supposed to love ourselves before we can love another? Love encompasses more than just affection. Can we raise $58 million to help with job training programs in our own communities? What about just raising $1 million dollars for nonprofit agencies to better support their clients? We need to love and support ourselves before we assist other countries “to get anything done in this world.” TIFFANY BLAKE Randleman | 888-3543

Expand Nothing’s wrong with occasional snow day Guilford S animal shelter BY JOAN GARNER


know that many readers will say that now is not the time to consider upgrading the animal shelter facilities in Guilford County because of the current economic conditions. But it seems that there hasn’t been an appropriate time for something to be done – even in good economic times. The shelter has been the same since I adopted my first dog there in 1969. In Guilford County, we recently have appropriated from various fund sources for a new jail, new fire stations, improvements to roads and schools, and expansion of our community college facilities and other needs in spite of our economic circumstances. The county courthouse in High Point is being renovated at a cost of $400,000, which was “leftover from a $5.1 million Greensboro courthouse project,” and $7.4 million to buy land and refurbish Centennial Center to house expanded offices for the Department of Social Services. The logic of increased demand on our social services and community college is obvious. The subject of how we accommodate our animals is always a low priority, if a priority at all. Neighboring counties have done much better, and if they can, we can also. I have read that the shelter kill rate has dropped from 10,000 to 8,000 a year. This averages to be 650 a month, and 162 a week. It isn’t merciful, as I see it, to kill healthy dogs and cats just because you don’t have the space to care for them. People who have faced the real euthanasia because of a beloved pet who is suffering and incurable can share some real thoughts with those who haven’t. It

now is nature’s way of calling time out, at least here in North Carolina. Let some white stuff collect on the ground and we call off schools, close businesses and stay home. And, despite what some recent transplants might tell you, it is a good thing. Snow days are special times when families can actually eat meals, play games, watch movies and be together. There is great delight in cooking meals, sledding and making snow cream. And yes, we do know enough not to eat the yellow snow. I love the pace of snow days, being able to sneak time to read a book or take a nap. It is even OK for the house to get messy. There may be a list of things that need doing, but they are either covered over, cannot be tackled or just put off


is a heart wrenching experience you will never forget. Yet most people go about their daily routine feeling that they have no responsibility in this situation. We are indeed responsible. A tough economy has put a strain on many budgets and many taxpayers without a doubt. Because of this, the jails have seen an increase in occupants, so we find a way to fund a larger and better jail for inmates and the people who work there. Larger numbers of animals are abused and abandoned than ever before. Many owners are unable to house and feed them. A record number have been left in foreclosed homes to starve, freeze and die of dehydration, according to news reports. Our animal shelter must be expanded and improved now. If adequate land is not available at the current site, then land must be purchased for immediate and future expansion. Until the people of Guilford County speak out regarding this deplorable situation, nothing will be done. Let your commissioners know how you feel – telephone 336-641-3351 or e-mail JOAN GARNER lives in High Point.

Even more irritating are the complaints of those who don’t think our highway maintenance folks aren’t cleaning the roads as quickly as they would like. These public servants are out working all night while they are warm at home griping. Most North Carolinians see snow and winter weather no more than two or three times per year. If we spent large sums of money employing people or purchasing equipment to remove snow and ice, you can be sure our public officials would receive even more criticism for wasting money. It would be valid. No, we don’t know how to drive in the snow and ice and don’t wish to learn. But neither are we terribly tolerant of the snickering and derision from those who moved here from ar-

eas where they have frequent occurrences of this weather. Without stooping to their level of faultfinding and belittling, let’s just say that Delta is ready when they are! In North Carolina, snow days are a gift to many of us. A chance to take a breather, to be forced to slow down and to pay attention to the basics like family, a warm dry shelter and rest. Admittedly, after several such days, we get cabin fever and long to return to the rat race, but we are thankful that both we and the rats had some time off.

when it snows. Heck, we aren’t this relaxed even when taking athome vacations. At these times, we are grateful for the health MY SPIN care providers and first Tom responders, like Campbell police, fire and ■■■ rescue people, who brave the weather to remain on the job in case we need them.

Is Scott Brown’s victory really relevant to republic’s future? BY MARVIN FOLKERTSMA


epublicans have greeted Scott Brown’s victory in Massachusetts with the sort of relief expressed by Winston Churchill when he learned that Pearl Harbor had prompted America to finally enter the war; for the first time in years, he “slept the sleep of a redeemed man.” Thus it has been with those Republicans opposing “Obamacare” and other administration initiatives: The Brown victory will “send a message” to the Democratic elite, declare conservative pundits. Progressive Scions of Sauron, beware! There may be a pesky, career-wrecking hobbit in your future, especially considering the Supreme Court’s recent decision on campaign advertising that give corporate Gandolfs more say than they’ve had since the darkness of restricted speech and the sclerosis of safe seats gripped Congressional Middle-Earth. As scary as this short-term scenario sounds for Democrats, the prospects of progressivism continue to be positive, for at least two reasons. First, a statement made by President Obama in an interview with George Stephanopoulos shortly after the election reveals, perhaps unintentionally, the philosophical soul of modern progressivism, one that is untroubled by shortterm setbacks. In answer to a question about policy tactics, the president said, “We lost some of that sense of speaking directly to the American people about what their core values are and why we have to make sure those institutions are matching up with those values.” Did you get that? It is not the job of leadership to repre-

sent Americans’ core values; rather, the president’s task is to explain to the country what its core values are. Likewise, the president’s press secretary mouthed the same sentiment the following weekend. Regardless of what Scott Brown campaigned on – affirmed the press secretary and his president – the voters of Massachusetts sent him to Washington for different reasons. This is all pure Rousseau, that imp of the French Enlightenment who scorned modernity and contributed to one of the most pernicious ideas in Western thought – the assumption that regardless of what ordinary people think they want, elites know better. Rousseau made a distinction between the “will of all,” such as decisions registered in elections, and the “general will,” an ethic that by definition embodies what is best for everyone, whether they like it or not. The general will cannot be represented by votes. The assumption of elite omniscience and popular incompetence has fascinated intellectuals from the time of Robespierre through Marx’s

concept of the masses’ “false consciousness” and onward to progressives’ rule by expertise. Not all elites have been as brutal as those who ran the gulag or death camps, but most have been as arrogant. In short, expect the Brown victory to generate tactical retreats by some progressives who value their jobs; but do not expect a major re-evaluation of their philosophical assumptions that would result in policy changes. They’ll simply wait for the mob to cool down, and then get on with the progressive agenda in another few years or so. Sorry, Sen. Brown; you’re just a passing fancy. A second reason why the future for liberal progressivism looks bright is that progressive assumptions have been built into the institutions of governance and culture for at least the past three generations. Do Republicans, conservatives, Madisonian constitutionalists, tea-party patriots and traditionalists of all stripes have any idea of the daunting nature of their tasks – that is, if they truly endeavor to try to stop the progressive agenda? Not likely. Consider the challenge of tax

reform, just to get started: Go ahead and attempt to eliminate that monstrosity known as the Internal Revenue Service and replace it with some form of the flat tax, under the radical assumption that how Americans spend and invest their resources is none of the government’s business. How far do you think that proposal would get? Let’s try some others: Demolish the Department of Education, return some of its functions to the states. The list goes on: Privatize and/or abolish Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and prevent any future government agency from taking on such cutesy names, much less such huge power. Deny federal aid to any college or university that grants tenure, which guarantees unlimited job security for radical academics. Slash budgets of every agency responsible for “discretionary spending” and don’t spend an additional penny on anything until the national debt is at least cut in half. And just for the fun it, fricassee a few spotted owls and deliver them au jus to whatever agency is in charge of protecting critters whose survival is deemed more important than the welfare of human beings. In short, a change in personnel in Washington – Scott Brown included – means little to the future of the republic unless more is done besides simply giving pause to the engine of progressive expansionism, which dominates government, media and academia. The question is whether a future Congress is up to the task.

Law officers are held to higher standards BY GARY E. LEWALLEN


read a letter in the Jan. 17 edition and for some reason, I felt compelled to make my feelings known and give another side to what Jo Callahan stated, “I’m wondering if there are some charges in the law books defined as a felony that never should have been there to begin with and should be changed.” My guess is the folks in Raleigh that are elected to represent the people that enact these laws are the ones that can answer that question better than me. If enough people want to get a law changed, just vote someone in that will promise to do that. I retired from law enforcement in January 2009 after working for almost 34 years on the job. During my career I worked for state, county and



city agencies which allowed me to interact with many different people and departments/agencies from the federal level down. I personally worked almost 13 years of my career in drug enforcement, of which I spent a large part of that time in an undercover capacity. I can tell you that there were many opportunities to “cross the line” and take advantage of situations that would most certainly have given me and my family a better quality of life, but none that my “moral turpitude” would allow. There was always something that stopped me from doing that. They call it jail and having a criminal record follow you for the rest of your life. Another reason: There was

not enough money in the world for me to violate the trust that I swore to uphold when I first put the badge on. One of my former employers, Sheriff Paul R. “Jaybird” McCrary told me the day he hired me to work criminal/drug investigations that, “There are a lot of things that this badge will do for you, but there is one thing that it will not do for you.” I asked him what that was and he said it will not keep you from going to prison if you violate the law. He also said it will give you respect, authority, friendship and advancement if you earn it. I never forgot what he told me, and when I see people that take the job as an advantage to build an “empire unto themselves” I say that is not what the badge is for! When an officer takes the oath to uphold the law and

breaks that trust, then that person forfeits the right to do this job again. Trust is a huge part of being a law enforcement officer, and even though society sometimes allows for those “second chances” in life, you forfeit the right to get a second chance in law enforcement when you violate the trust instilled in you by the people when you cross the line. That, my friends, is the difference between a law enforcement officer and someone who commits a felony by violating the law. Law enforcement officers have to be held to a higher standard because of the trust that is placed in them. Have a great day and remember this when you vote to put your “trust” in the next person that puts the badge on. GARY E. LEWALLEN is a former Archdale Police chief.


Restored gun from Confederate raider goes on display CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A crate arrived in Mobile, Ala., on Friday carrying a piece of painstakingly restored Confederate history. The cargo was a gun from the famed Confederate naval raider CSS Alabama which was conserved at the same South Carolina lab where the Confederate submarine H.L. Hunley is being restored. The 3-ton gun, one of two restored at the lab, will be displayed at the Museum of Mobile.

The second remains in Charleston where there are plans to display it at a museum that will one day display the Hunley, said Paul Mardikian, the head conservator on the Hunley project. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a relief for me to see them done,â&#x20AC;? Mardikian said Friday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cannons are inherently difficult to conserve and stabilize.â&#x20AC;? The Hunley, the first submarine to sink an enemy warship, was raised off the South Carolina coast in Au-

gust 2000, and brought to the lab. The next day one of the Alabama guns also arrived. The second gun from the Alabama arrived later, said former Alabama state Sen. Robert Edington, who for years served as head of the CSS Alabama Association. There were human remains on the encrustation on that gun. Those remains were buried in a ceremony in Mobile several years ago and the gun arrived back in Alabama on Friday, he said.

The Alabama, built in Liverpool, England, and launched in 1862, was one of the most successful raiders in naval history. The CSS Alabama Association says that during the 22 months it sailed, her crew boarded 447 ships taking 2,000 prisoners. The Alabama sank in about 200 feet of water off Cherbourg, France after an engagement with the Unionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s USS Kearsage on June 11, 1864, just a few months after the Hunley sank.

Signs of hope Data, reports show mild growth in furniture sales BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – It’s been a few years since home furnishings professionals forecasted a brighter future for the industry, but a new optimism may be brewing. Modest gains and improvements in the furniture retail sector have been reported for the last two months in Furniture Insights, a monthly report that surveys furniture retailers, manufacturers and

distributors. A new report issued by the High Point Market Authority, the Business Outlook and CEO Update, also is forecasting an uptick in sales activity during the first six months of the year. According to the publisher of Furniture Insights, Ken Smith, with Smith Leonard Accountants and Consultants, new orders in November increased 10 percent compared to new orders in November 2008. The increase follows the somewhat positive news in

October when new orders were flat with the same time last year, being the first month since October 2007 where new orders did not drop from the previous year’s orders. Smith said the increase is a small gain because it compares to a time when furniture orders were at an extreme low. “November results were certainly encouraging for a change,” Smith said in the report. “Two months do not really create a trend, but it is certainly a start.” Smith also noted that 51 percent of those surveyed reported an increase in orders for November, up from 41 percent in October.

The Business Outlook and CEO Update, published for the first time this month, also stated renewed optimism for 2010. The report includes interviews and raw data from leading names in the industry. One retailer at Gorman’s Furniture said in the report that consumers who had survived the recession would probably begin to spend money again now that the panic seems to be dying down. “Year-end numbers from 2009 and forecasts for the coming season suggest that we are back on the road to recovery,” said Brian Casey, president of the High Point Market Authority. “In fact, the coming six



months could be the best our industry has seen in a good, long while.” The report also analyzes national data, including figures from the U.S. Commerce Department and the Financial Forecast Center. Both reports noted new job creation remained the most important factor to drive consumer spending, and Smith said recent volatility in the stock market also could hurt consumer confidence. Still, he said better days were on the way. “Better days will come,” Smith said. “You just need to be here when they get here.” | 888-3617

two about furniture and design. After careers in cosmetology and photography allowed her to travel around the world, the interior design profession seemed to be calling to her. “I saw many things,” said Jollay about the time spent aboard a cruise ship when she was a photographer. “I was interested in architectural elements, how things worked together and what made a successful environment.”

She enrolled in an interior design program at Randolph County Community College and, upon completion of her degree, relocated to High Point from Rocky Mount and opened her first interior design business. Through the years, Jollay designed spaces ranging from 800square-foot condos to 17,000-square-foot estates. She also served as interior designer for the Chamber of Commerce and designs showrooms at the High Point Market. The struggle of the furniture industry, both locally and nationally, is one of the reasons she decided to open the retail store, she said.

about eclecticism,” she said. “People no longer want to walk into a room and see a set of furniture. They want different pieces. The important thing is to be able to make those pieces fit together.” Jollay specializes in creating computer-generated floor plans for her clients, something that’s crucial to designing a room, she said. She also has access to some showrooms throughout the year when the High Point Market is not in town. Jollay will take customers to those showrooms


to show them additional pieces she might not have in her store, giving the public a sneak peek into the world of the furniture market. With her design capabilities, retail items and access to showrooms, she hopes to bring furniture shoppers back to High Point over time. “We’ve got to get people back to shopping in High Point,” she said. “We already have a name for being the Furniture Capital of the World.” | 888-3617

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – The ketchup packet has been around for more than 40 years, and complaints about it for nearly as long: too messy, too small, too hard to open. Now ketchup giant H.J. Heinz Co. is unveiling the first major packaging change to the to-go condiment. The new design has a base that’s more like a cup for dipping and also a tear-off end for squeezing, plus it holds three times as much ketchup than a traditional packet. “The packet has long been the bane of our consumers,” said Dave Ciesinski, vice president of Heinz Ketchup. “The biggest complaint is there is no way to dip and eat it on-the-go.” Heinz has long struggled to find a design that lets diners dip or squeeze ketchup that could also be sold at a price acceptable to its restaurant customers. For this effort, it bought its design team a used minivan two years ago to test if their ideas really worked while eating on the road. Heinz sells more than 11 million cases of its ketchup packets in the U.S. every year and it will continue to sell the traditional packet. The new packet is in test markets in the Midwest and Southeast and will roll out at select fast-food restaurants in the fall.



Government uses Super Bowl to boost census WASHINGTON (AP) — Faced with record levels of red ink into the foreseeable future, Washington is spending $2.5 million to create buzz for the census – by advertising during the Super Bowl. The Census Bureau is hoping to exploit the strong ratings from this annual attraction, aiming to get more participation from people who now seem disinclined to mail back a government questionnaire or even answer the door. Census officials call it a good investment, saying the front-end costs of purchasing the ads can be quickly recouped if they succeed in encouraging

people to mail back their census forms. A recent poll found nearly 1 in 5 residents said they may not fill them out, mostly because they were unfamiliar with the census or weren’t interested. The government relies on the census not only to learn about Americans and their lives but also to parcel out federal dollars and, as required by the Constitution, to determine the number of U.S. House seats representing each state. The census officially began last month in rural Alaska, and most of the U.S. will receive forms by mail the week of March 15.

Not everyone is happy about spending taxpayer money to tout the census during the Super Bowl. Sen. John McCain, RAriz., tweeted this week that the government “shouldn’t be wasting $2.5 million taxpayer dollars to compete with ads for Doritos!” Sen. Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., called on the Census Bureau to justify every dollar of its $133 million ad campaign, citing the tight economic times. There’s no such lack of interest on the part of the mayors, county commissioners, governors, U.S. House members and state legislators — a host



of public figures ranging from city hall to the U.S. Capitol. Those people hang on every census because the head count determines the size and shape of legislative districts and, equally critical, just how much money the various localities get from some $400 billion in federal aid. Plans for the Super Bowl commercials come after the House voted Thursday to increase America’s debt by $1.9 trillion – to $14.3 trillion – or over $40,000 for every man, woman and child the Census Bureau hopes to catch in its count.

Shift in spirit Tough economy spurs switch to cheaper liquor NEW YORK (AP) — Americans’ love affair with top-shelf booze cooled last year as the recession took a toll on high-priced tipples. A new report by an industry group shows people drank more but turned to cheaper brands. They also drank more at home and less in pricier bars and restaurants. Industry growth slowed in 2009, with the amount of liquor sold by suppliers up 1.4 percent. That’s the smallest increase since 2001 and below the 10-year average of 2.6 percent. Last year, the lowestpriced segment, with brands such as Popov vodka that can go for less than $10 for a fifth, grew the fastest, with volume rising 5.5 percent, after edging up 0.6 percent in

2008. Meanwhile, the most expensive price range, roughly $30 or more for a 750 ml bottle (think Grey Goose, owned by Bacardi), fell the most, tumbling 5.1 percent. The Distilled Spirits Council of the United States said in its report Tuesday that liquor suppliers reported flat total revenue of $18.7 billion last year. Kenneth Jolly of Milwaukee has been swapping his favorite, pricier liquors such Patron tequila, for cheaper brands such as Jose Cuervo to stay on top of his budget. For him, it’s simple math. “If you consume a lot on a regular basis and you have people come to your house, you have to adjust,” said Jolly, a 27-yearold network technician

in Milwaukee who buys liquor every other week. “If your body can take it, you might as well buy the cheaper liquor.” Sales in stores — which make up three-quarters of liquor sales — rose about 2.1 percent, while sales in restaurants fell 3 percent. “People still want to entertain themselves, they still want to get together with family and friends, so a lot of people will move from a restaurant to their living room,” council President Peter Cressy said. Vodka remained Americans’ favorite liquor, accounting for almost a third of all spirits sold and sales of $4.56 billion. Sales volume for the cheapest versions of tequila rose 21 percent, the fastest of any type of spirit. That’s most likely because entertainers are using pre-made margarita mixes to serve at home, said David Ozgo, the council’s chief economist. Plus you

can mix it before guests arrive, so they don’t know what brand you use, said Joan Holleran, director of research at research firm Mintel. Cressy said the fact that people were still drinking more spirits bodes well for the industry, still recovering from a long decline from the 1980s through the mid-’90s, when liquor sales fell by a third as drinkers turned to beer. Since then, an ever-increasing array of expensive liquors have fueled rapid growth.

McDonald’s to expand in Russia MOSCOW (AP) — McDonald’s will expand by 45 outlets in Russia by the end of this year, CEO Jim Skinner said last week as the company marked the 20th anniversary of the opening of the first landmark restaurant under Soviet rule in 1990. The expansion, bringing the number of McDonald’s in Russia to 290, comes as rival Burger King arrives in Russia.

“Russia is doing so well, we have chosen Russia as one of the top countries for re-investment of capital in 2010,” CEO Jim Skinner told reporters. Skinner dismissed suggestions that the recent market entry of Burger King Holdings Inc., operator of the No. 2 hamburger chain, could hurt the company. “Every new competitor and opportunity to

serve the Russian customers is a challenge for us to do a better job, to be more relevant,” Skinner said. McDonald’s Corp., based in Oak Brook, Illinois, posted a $1.2 billion profit in the fourth quarter 2009, 23 percent more than a year earlier, as the company continues to tackle the downturn better than most of its competitors.

Teaming – what some younger workers want BY MILDRED L. CULP WORKWISE FEATURES

Opportunities for new and exciting projects are percolating up from younger workers to their more senior counterparts. People on the receiving end of the invitations recognize that they have something younger workers want. But what is it? Not all are motivated the same way. Kristine Harper is a software developer for NEON Enterprise Software Inc., in Sugar Land, Texas., where she is just about the only person in her twenties. “I’m constantly communicating with people of the older generation,” she says, “whether it has to do with questions, feedback or team work. I either work with people twice my age or, as a gymnastics coach, under the age of five. I don’t seem to work with people my own age.” She’s actively engaged in the community as project manager of zNextGen, a networking and mentoring team of 550 younger and older workers at SHARE, a volunteer trade association, who discuss pressing industry issues. Chadd Bennett is director of Research and Publications at Independent Colleges of Washington,


Kristine Harper (left), project leader of SHARE’s zNextGen networking group, discusses planning with co-workers at Neon Enterprise Software Inc., in Sugar Land, Texas. She’s considerably younger than the people in her group. an educational non-profit corporation in Seattle. Everyone in his office is 40 percent older than he is. Peter Geisheker, CEO of The Geisheker Group Marketing Firm Inc., in Green Bay, Wis., a consultancy and copy writing firm, remembers what he looked for in his 20s when he worked in other companies.

perspective to the zNextGen team. She wants team members who are enthusiastic and understand “the meaning and goals of the project.” She points out, “Age has nothing to do with it.” Seattle’s Bennett maintains the older workers in his office, some from out-ofstate, have in-depth knowledge he doesn’t. “I have a fresh set of eyes,” he says, “and I’m not afraid to try EXPECTATIONS Harper brings unusual new things. They’re there

to temper me, to teach me.” He adds that about a third of his ideas fly. Harper, Bennett and Geisheker have at some point expected mentoring in some of their relationships. Harper enjoys having more than one mentor. When Geisheker worked in marketing and staffing companies, he relied on older workers for their knowledge, experience and advice. Their specialty was most important,

then their industry and its relevance to his. “I’d ask them how to do this, negotiate that,” he recalls. Bennett will come out and say, “I need some mentorship on this. I’m not quite sure what I’m doing.” He approaches people who are both patient and open to ideas. A little technical acumen helps, too.

people approach come with extra assets. Giesheker was always looking for relevant background, “if they’d been a part of running a successful company or an entrepreneur themselves.” He finds a gold mine of advice among those who’ve been responsible for employees and company success. “You learn what does work and what to do,” he comments. “You also learn what not to do.” Bennett considers a gmail account a collaborative tool. Harper comes at bonus assets from a different angle: “When we look for volunteers, one of the things we really appreciate is that they have the time to give to our project. They might have a real technical job or real senior job, but (it’s a bonus) if they can find the time to dedicate to another project that might be outside of their daily job. “I can’t say that I don’t see age,” she adds. “I don’t focus on it when I’m working on it as a group. We generally do have a neutral attitude toward age, I believe, because we’re all interested in the same things.”

Hoosiers, Who Dats in Super Bowl MIAMI (AP) – Hoosiers and Who Dats. And, oh yes, the two best teams in the NFL also happen to be on hand for today’s Super Bowl. Peyton Manning and his AFC champion Indianapolis Colts are 5-point favorites to spoil the ending of the New Orleans football renaissance for Drew Brees and the Saints. The odd twist to this story is that the boy who grew up in the Big Easy rooting for his dad as he quarterbacked the awful Saints, may end up breaking its heart. “You hear the term Hoosier Hospitality, and I really didn’t know what that meant, coming from New Orleans, where you hear Southern Hospitality,” says Manning, the league’s only fourtime MVP who guided the Colts



Who: Colts vs. Saints Where: Miami’s Sun Life Stadium Kickoff: 6:25 p.m. TV: CBS, WFMY, Ch. 2 locally

to the NFL title three years ago, in the same stadium. “I really feel it is kind of the same thing. It is good people. “What has been exciting for me since I have lived there, it’s always been a sports town, but it’s really turned into a football town. That is the kind of place you want to play football.” New Orleans always has been a football town, even when the Saints were the Aints – back in

the days Archie Manning led the team and fans wore paper bags on their heads. But that four-decade love affair morphed into something soulful when the Saints inspired a city in ruin in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. “It’s important for not only the people in New Orleans, but I think the people around the country because you do understand how much it means to that community and what they’ve been through,” Brees says. “Our success as a team over the last four years, but especially this year, has been tremendous just in regards to giving so many of the members of that community hope and lifting their spirits.” The Saints (15-3) led the league in scoring with 510 points. If Colts All-Pro defensive end Dwight

Freeney and his 131⁄2 sacks can’t go on his damaged right ankle, Brees, Reggie Bush, Marques Colston and company might light up the Miami night with touchdowns. So could the Colts (16-2) with their deep receiving corps and the incomparable Manning. Surpassing the 75 points in the 1995 Super Bowl (San Francisco 49, San Diego 26) is not out of the question. Doing it by halftime isn’t totally absurd. When the Colts won their only championship representing Indy, Tony Dungy was the coach. Now it’s his hand-chosen successor, Jim Caldwell, and only two rookie coaches have ever won the Super Bowl. One of them, Don McCafferty, did it for the Baltimore Colts in 1971, the first title game after the AFL-NFL merger.

Smith, Deacons drop Cavs in OT CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA. (AP) – Ish Smith scored 15 points and dished out five assists to lead Wake Forest to a 64-61 overtime win over Virginia on Saturday. Al-Farouq Aminu had 13 points and 10 rebounds for the Demon Deacons (16-5, 6-3 Atlantic Coast Conference), who improved to 4-0 in overtime games this season. “I just thought it was a hard-fought ACC game,” Wake Forest coach Dino Gaudio said. “We’re very fortunate to win. I just thought Virginia’s kids played really, really hard. I thought our kids played very hard. Coin toss, anyone could have won that basketball game.” Virginia (14-7, 5-3) was led by Sylven Landesberg’s 28 points. Mike Scott was the only other Virginia player to score in double figures with 10 points – none in the second half. Wake Forest, which outscored Virginia 9-6 in the overtime, moved into third place in the ACC behind Duke and Maryland. The Demon Deacons shot 48 percent from the field, holding Virginia to 34 percent. Wake Forest outAP rebounded Virginia by 12.

dio said. “They don’t give out many second shots. Tony Woods came in and gave us some really good second shots. “We have our shortcomings. ... We’re not a good free throw shooting team, which was evident today. We’re not a great shooting team, which was evident against Miami when we were 3 for 12 from 3’s. We just find a way to make up for that. It’s got to be on the backboard and it’s got to be with our defense. I thought those two things were strong for us today.” Wake Forest trailed for much of the game. The Demon Deacons didn’t take their first lead until over five minutes of the second half had elapsed. In the final minute of regulation, Wake Forest took a 55-53 lead on a layup by Smith. Virginia answered with a strong drive to the basket by Landesberg, which resulted in a goaltending call. With under five seconds remaining, Smith missed a long jumper that could have won it for the Deacons. In the second half, the lead changed five times before Wake Forest opened up a 48-43 lead after back-toback hoops by center Tony Woods.

Hendrick cars sweep front row for Daytona 500 DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) – Hendrick Motorsports teammates Mark Martin and Dale Earnhardt Jr. secured the front row for the Daytona 500 on Saturday. Martin, the only driver to top 191 mph during qualifying, earned his first Daytona 500 pole. Earnhardt will start second, trying to rebound from the worst season in his Sprint Cup career. The front-row sweep validates, at least for a week, the offseason moves team owner Rick Hendrick made in an attempt to get Earn-

hardt’s team turned around. “It’s such an incredible accomplishment for the 5 and 88 team,” Martin said. “It’s all about the Martin team. That was not an accomplishment of mine. ... To have Dale Jr. on the outside of the front row, locked in, just means we’re doing something right.” Earnhardt was nearly as optimistic.

“This is a start, and hopefully we can keep the ball rolling over the next several days and have a good Speedweeks,” Earnhardt said. Martin and EarnEarnhardt hardt are the only drivers in the 43-man field who have their starting positions locked in. The top 35 drivers from last season are guaranteed starting spots in next Sunday’s race,

but their positions will be set in Thursday’s 150-mile qualifying races. Eight other spots will be up grabs in those races, which could be wild affairs since NASCAR is giving drivers more horsepower and more leeway for aggressive driving. Martin and Earnhardt, meanwhile, might just want to stay out of trouble. “It takes a little bit of the pressure off and relieves a little bit of the stress,” Earnhardt said. “Now we can focus on winning the 500.”




o paraphrase a line made famous by the late Ronald Reagan, here I go again. I’ve been like the Washington Generals when it comes to predicting sports outcomes lately. My success rate leaves a lot to be desired. But quitters never win. I’ll keep on trying. Today’s Super Bowl promises to be a good one. The Colts and Saints showcase explosive offenses led by superstar quarterbacks. Both teams boast a dangerous receiving corps and solid offensive lines. Defensively, both teams tend to give up big plays and large chunks of yardage. But both units can strike for key turnovers and apply a fierce pass rush.

With all the city of New Orleans has endured in recent years, the feel-good story would be a Saints victory. It could happen. But I think Peyton Manning will make the difference for the Colts. His place in the Hall of Fame is secure, as is his status as one of the game’s all-time great QBs. A second Super Bowl championship cements Manning’s legacy. Lots of star quarterbacks led their teams to one Super Bowl title – Joe Namath, Len Dawson, Steve Young, Brett Favre and Kurt Warner come to mind.

Multiple Super Bowl crowns separate a few quarterbacks from the rest. Joe Montana and Terry Bradshaw captured four Super Bowls each, while Troy Aikman and Tom Brady guided their teams to three titles apiece. Brady remains active in his quest for four or more. Two-time Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks of note include Bart Starr, Bob Griese, Roger Staubach and Ben Roethlisberger. Manning will join that exclusive club tonight. When the dust settles, make it Colts 28, Saints 21.

Unable to find outside help, the Chicago Bears have promoted Rod Marinelli to defensive coordinator while rounding out their coaching staff. Coach Lovie Smith called Marinelli “among the best defensive coaches in the NFL.” Marinelli and Smith are friends who worked on Tony Dungy’s staff in Tampa Bay. So it was no surprise that he wound up in Chicago despite a 10-38 run with the Lions that ended with a winless season. Marinelli, who retains his assistant head coach title, worked with the Bears’ defensive line this season after spending three years as the Lions’ head coach.

Smith, Rice lead seven new football Hall of Famers FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) – All-time greats Jerry Rice and Emmitt Smith led a class of seven into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday. The NFL’s career receiving and rushing leaders were joined in the Hall by John Randle, Russ Grimm, Rickey Jackson, Floyd Little and Dick LeBeau. Little and LeBeau were elected as senior committee nominees. Rice and Smith both made it in their first year of eligibility. They were elected a day before the Super Bowl, a game they each won three times. “This is almost perfect,” Smith said. “I don’t think even Steven Spielberg could have written a script this nice.” They will be inducted into the Canton, Ohio,

shrine on Aug. 7. Nobody could stop Rice, the league’s top pass catcher and alltime touchdowns leader, when he played for San Francisco, Oakland and Seattle. Rice made 1,549 catches for 22,895 yards, had 14 1,000-yard seasons and scored 208 touchdowns. Nor could they handle Smith, who rushed for 18,355 yards and 164 touchdowns for Dallas and Arizona. Like Rice, he won an MVP award in the NFL’s championship game. And no one could deny them immediate entry into the Hall. A nominee needs 80 percent approval from the 44 media members who vote and they were slam-dunks. Two other all-time top receivers, Cris Carter and Tim Brown, were not elected.

Hornets sting Bobcats CHARLOTTE (AP) – Darren Collison scored a career-high 24 points filling in for Chris Paul, David West added 21 points, and the New Orleans Hornets gave Emeka Okafor a victory in his return to Charlotte, 104-99 over the listless Bobcats on Saturday night.

In the first regular-season meeting since the July trade that sent Okafor to New Orleans for Tyson Chandler, the Hornets rallied from a 10-point halftime deficit to snap a three-game losing streak since Paul was sidelined with a knee injury. Okafor, the Bobcats’ first

draft pick, had 16 points and seven rebounds as the Hornets shot 51 percent from the field. Stephen Jackson scored 26 points and Nazr Mohammed added all of his 15 in the first half for Charlotte, which has lost three straight games.

Canes’ Peters makes 34 saves in NHL debut UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) – Justin Peters made 34 saves in his NHL debut, and Jussi Jokinen, Patrick Dwyer and Joni Pitkanen supported him with goals to help the Carolina Hurricanes beat the New York Islanders 3-1 on Saturday night. Frans Nielsen’s short-handed goal in the second was the only offense the Islanders could muster against the 23year-old Peters, who made 11 third-period saves. Carolina salvaged a split of a fourgame road trip, winning games on backto-back nights against Buffalo and New

York. Pitkanen’s long-rang goal with Rick DiPietro trying to get to the bench with a minute left added the insurance marker. The Islanders have scored just nine goals during a season-high seven-game losing streak – their longest since last season’s eight-game slide from Jan. 2-19. Before the game, Hurricanes officials confirmed starting goalie Cam Ward will see a back specialist Monday. Ward missed his second straight game after his back stiffened up on a flight from Calgary to Buffalo.

Danica upstages Gerhart’s ARCA victory DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Bobby Gerhart’s record sixth victory at Daytona International Speedway was overshadowed by the successful stock car debut of IndyCar star Danica Patrick, who finished sixth Saturday in the crashfilled ARCA race. Patrick spent much of the race among the top 10 in her widely anticipated stock car racing debut, but she bumped fenders with Nelson Piquet Jr. and spun out through the infield grass on lap 54, costing her any hopes of a victory. But she passed several cars in the closing laps of the ARCA season opener, and got as high as fifth with three laps left. “It was a lot of fun,” Patrick said. “I bumped from the side. I bumped from the front. I got bumped from the back. I learned a lot, and I had so much fun in a race car today. So I can’t wait to do it again.” But she didn’t have enough to catch Gerhart, who has won the ARCA season opener six of the last 12 years. The win snapped a two-year losing streak at Daytona. “As a little kid, I dreamed of having an opportunity to come here and race,” Gerhart said. “When that happens, naturally comes the passion to come out and win, but

I couldn’t imagine doing it this many times. I’ve got to tell you, though, I hate the number six. We’ve got to swing for seven.” Mark Thompson was second, followed by John Wes Townley, James Buescher and Patrick Sheltra. It was still an impressive start for Patrick, who will race a partial schedule in NASCAR’s second-tier racing series for JR Motorsports. She has not yet decided if she will make her NASCAR debut next week in the Nationwide opener at Daytona, and her experience Saturday was going to play a huge factor. She had not made a decision after the race, but her car owners seemed pleased. Dale Earnhardt Jr. sprinted from the NASCAR drivers meeting to congratulate her, while Rick Hendrick was quick to praise her over the in-car radio. “You drove the wheels off that thing, girl,” Hendrick told her. “We are proud of you.” Patrick replied, “Thank you very much.” The Daytona ARCA race is notorious for its frequent and spectacular crashes — “You need to wear a helmet if you watch it from the stands,” driver Scott Speed said earlier in the week — and


Danica Patrick spins after making contact with Nelson Piquet Jr. during Saturday’s 200-mile ARCA race at Daytona International Speedway. IndyCar star Patrick avoided hitting the wall and went on to finish sixth in her stock-car racing debut. this year’s race was no exception. The car carnage started early, when Bill Baird’s car got wildly loose on lap 7 and collided with Steve Blackburn, resulting in an eight-car pileup. The accident happened behind Patrick, who slipped one spot after the start and was running 13th at the time. The race restarted 10 laps later — and the field couldn’t even get through a full lap without another wreck. Dakoda Armstrong’s

car spun out and was hit hard by Craig Goess, bringing the race to a halt again. Patrick artfully swerved high to avoid the wreck. Another female driver in the field, Jill George, walked away safely after her car overturned in a frightening accident on lap 27. The race was red flagged in the aftermath of the accident as track safety workers repaired a fence. Patrick surged to sixth after a pit stop on lap 29, then showed she could

She made an impressive save, managing to keep her car from sliding back up the wall. After a pair of pit stops, Patrick was able to get back in the race but slipped to 24th. The most frightening wreck of the day came a few laps later, when Barry Fitzgerald’s car went tumbling wildly in the infield grass next to the backstretch. The car flipped seven times before coming to a stop, but Fitzgerald was able to climb out of the car.

run with the leaders. But she learned about drafting at Daytona the hard way on lap 49, when she moved out of the low groove and lost touch with the leaders, slipping from sixth to 11th. She noted over her incar radio that he car was beginning to get loose and slide around on the track – and things were about to get much worse. On lap 54, Piquet Jr. tapped fenders with Patrick on the frontstretch, spinning Patrick into the infield grass.

Let’s close owner points loophole SUNDAY MORNING EXHAUST:


ne of the biggest shams that NASCAR allows is letting teams that don’t finish in the top 35 in owner points get the points for the following season of top-35 teams that go out of business. The sham is that the transfer is usually accomplished by letting the owner of the defunct team be listed as the owner of the team wanting the points, even though the owner of the defunct team usually doesn’t have anything to do with the team getting his points. Teams covet a way of getting top 35 points for a new season because the top 35 from one year are guaranteed starting spots in the first five races of the next. For the 2009 season, Roger Penske got Sam Hornish into the top 35 by acquiring the points earned in 2008 by Bill Davis’ No. 22 by putting down Davis as the owner of Hornish’s car, and Bob Jenkins moved his No. 34 into the promised land by forming an alliance with Teresa Earnhardt to take the points of Dale Earnhardt Inc.’s No. 15. In the middle of January, it appeared that the points of three teams might go by the boards. But, Barney Visser, the owner of the No. 78 Furniture Row team, filled one spot by forming a technical alliance with Richard Childress Racing that included getting the points of RCR’s No. 07 team and listing

Childress as the No. 78’s owner. Then as teams were getting ready to head to Daytona this week, Jenkins struck again by doing a deal with Doug Yates to get the points SPORTS earned by the No. 98 and No. 96 teams fielded Greer by the Yates’ shops last Smith year before the offseason ■■■ merger with Richard Petty Motorsports. But, wait. In explaining the deal, Yates said that the transaction with RPM was a sale instead of a merger and that it didn’t have anything to do with RPM. So the transfer of the No. 98 points was approved even though Menard is driving a No. 98 for RPM. Seems that Menard will be using the points earned by RPM’s No. 44 team last year. Confused by all of that and the fact the No. 96 points transferred even though Hall of Fame Racing was the owner last year. Losers in the Yates switch are the No. 83 Red Bull team with driver Scott Speed and the No. 71 TRG team with Bobby Labonte. They finished No. 36 and No. 37 in points last year but would have been considered top-35 cars if no one had taken the points for the No. 96 and No. 98. Labonte will get into the 500

Lack of snow crimps Olympic halfpipe training VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Winter Olympics officials will eliminate two days of halfpipe training as they continue to add snow to Cypress Mountain, site of the freestyle and snowboarding events. Athletes now will have three days of training instead of five. The men’s halfpipe is scheduled for Feb. 17, with the women the following day. “The main thing is to protect the field of play,” said Tim Gayda, vice president for sport for the Vancouver organizing committee. “We definitely want athletes on the course. But we also want to make sure the field of play is the best it can be for the games.” And that means keeping athletes away as a helicopter dumps a load of snow every three min-

utes atop parts of Cypress Mountain. It also might mean using snow hardeners such as fertilizer come competition day — a “last resort” Gayda said. “The forecast is looking positive this week, and we’ll hopefully see some colder temperatures,” he said. One of the most difficult aspects of getting Cypress ready is building an approximately 500-foot-long halfpipe with 22-foot high walls and decks on each side. Halfpipe builder Chris Gunnarson, whose company made the Winter X Games superpipe in Aspen, Colo., and many others, said some metal and plywood forms can be substituted for snow to shape parts of the halfpipe. “You can also truck in

and helicopter in some snow,” he said. “That serves a good purpose until the snow becomes saturated. If it continues to rain, that’s a problem.” He said the toughest part of building any halfpipe comes once makers start preparing the vertical surface, “the portion that’s ungroomable.” “As you cut it, you use equipment to shape the pipe and when you do it, you’re taking snow away, not adding,” Gunnarson said. “It’s like you’re starting with a piece of marble. You’re cutting it away. You can’t really add to it at that point.” Gunnarson said he feels for the halfpipe team but didn’t want to talk specifics about the Cypress project because he didn’t know all the details.

as a past champion if nothing else. Here’s a suggestion. If a team goes away, then its points go way, unless the team is legitimately sold to a new owner as appears the case with Jack Roush selling his No. 26 team to Vermont businessman Bill Jenkins.

DRUG TALK While NASCAR gets a thumbs’ down for the points shenanigans, it gets thumbs’ up for putting its list of banned substances in its rule books. Examples of substances that can result in suspension include stimulants such as amphetamine, methamphetamine, ecstasy and eve; narcotic analgesics that include methadone, morphine, oxycodone and heroin; ephedrine class drugs if taken in excess of the manufacturer’s recommended dosage, valium and other drugs in the benzodiazepine class; barbiturates; performance enhancing drugs that include Human Growth Hormones and anabolic androgenic steroids; muscle relaxers; sleep aids and beta blockers

GOING DOWN Casey Mears is in an entirely different circumstance than what he has been accustomed. Mears raced last season in RCR’s No. 07 but was left without a ride when sponsor Jack Daniels left and RCR folded the team.

The only thing that Mears could land is the first six races of the season with the startup team Keyed-Up Motorsports owned by Virginia businessman Raymond Key. “My role changes for sure,” Mears said. “I think when you go into an RCR or Hendrick Motorsports you are another piece to the puzzle. I think in one of these deals they are leaning on me a lot to get the job done and also to give them advice on what they need, how the car feels, what I’m looking for. I think having the experience is going to help me and help these guys get to where they need to be quicker.”

SPARK PLUGS Aric Almirola could be the unluckiest guy in the world. Almirola lost rides when first Bobby Ginn folded and then last year when Earnhardt Ganassi Racing couldn’t come up with a sponsor. He signed on with James Finch to run the entire season but Finch lost his sponsor on Thursday when the Miccosukee tribe in Florida had a change of leadership. ...

Panther women fall short at Coastal SPECIAL TO THE ENTERPRISE

CONWAY, S.C. – A late rally by the High Point University women’s basketball team fell just short as the Panthers lost to Coastal Carolina 67-60 on Saturday afternoon. Sophomore Shamia Brown scored 19 points and had three steals for High Point. HPU falls to 13-9 overall and 6-3 in the Big South. Coastal Carolina improves to 13-8, 4-5. “This was one of those days where we just weren’t able to do things that we needed to do to win on the road,” said head coach Tooey Loy. “Give a lot of credit

to Coastal Carolina. They played better than I have seen them play all season. We didn’t get many breaks, every time I thought we were getting back into it we would get a tough break.” Down 62-52 with less than four minutesto play, HPU went on an 8-1 run to trim the CCU lead to 63-60 with a little over one minute in the contest. Brown and junior Amy Dodd each scored four points for the Panthers in the late surge and freshman Erin Reynolds contributed two steals. High Point had a chance to tie the game with 25 seconds left after Coastal’s Katie White missed a shot and junior Mackenzie Maier pulled down the rebound, but

CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. – Brian Zoubek would be quite the menacing figure atop a baseball mound, yet his 7-foot frame and well-worn beard haven’t always been all that imposing on the basketball court. Saturday afternoon, just a two-buck subway ride from Fenway Park, the Duke Blue Devils called on Zoubek to close out a victory over Boston College. This time, Zoubek delivered. With a game that Duke seemed to have in the bag suddenly hanging in the balance, Zoubek left the paint to close out on Joe Trapani’s potential game-tying shot, forcing Trapani to take a much more difficult 3-pointer that had little chance of going in at the buzzer as the Blue Devils held on for a 66-63 victory at Conte Forum. Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski also was happy after his senior helped save the day. The No. 10 Blue Devils (19-4, 72 ACC) had led since the seven-minute mark of the first half, but Krzyzewski had to go deep into his rotation as Boston College (12-11, 3-6) whittled away a

10-point deficit over the final four minutes. With senior Lance Thomas out with five fouls and brothers Mason and Miles Plumlee out of sorts, Krzyzewski surrounded his big three of Jon Scheyer (21 points), Nolan Smith (21) and Kyle Singler (12) with freshman Ryan Kelly and a two-man platoon of Zoubek on defense and Andre Dawkins on offense. Boston College trimmed the deficit to 60-56 heading to the final 55 seconds, and every time the Devils scored, the Eagles did them one better. Kelly and Dawkins hit a free throw in the final minute; Trapani (12 points) and Corey Raji (15) answered with two free throws apiece. Smith drilled two free throws, but Reggie Jackson responded with a long, contested 3-pointer with 16 seconds left – for a team that was 1-of-12 on 3-pointers to that point. Just like that, the Eagles were within one point. Scheyer, however, responded by making two free throws (Duke was 11-of-22 from the line before Smith and Scheyer finished 4-of-4), and then Zoubek didn’t give Trapani much of a chance in the Eagles’ lone opportunity to pull even.

HIGH POINT – A repeat performance would be welcome by High Point University men’s basketball coach Scott Cherry today. Cherry’s Panthers take on Big South preseason favorite Radford for the second time this season, in a game postponed a day because of a snow storm that blanketed most of Virginia. In their earlier meeting at the Millis Center, HPU enjoyed one of its best moments of the season by surprising the Highlanders, 83-77. “That was the best game we’ve played all year,” Cherry said. “I believe we can do the same up there.” Radford was installed as the preseason favorite because it features 6-11. 260-pound preseason player of the year Art Parakhouski and a pair of 6-8 forwards – Joey Lynch-Flohr and Lazar Trifunovic. Parakhouski scored 29 points against the Panthers and leads the league with a 22.5 points per game average and rebounding at 8.9 per game. Trifunovic is averaging 14.6 ppg and third in rebounding at 8.9. Lynch-Flohr is averaging 12.3 point and 7.1 rebounds. With guards dropping back to help defend in the paint and an offense that scored in transition and managed to shoot over the big men, High Point managed its upset. “We had four post players then and now we have three,” Cherry said. alluding to the suspension of Jourdan Morris. “But we had three of our post players picked up three fouls in the first half. If you would have told me we would have the post guys with three fouls early, I’d wouldn’t have believed you if you said we would win. But. we played extremely well. We were flying around and putting pressure on the ball, getting out in transition.” Other teams have also discovered ways to overcome Radford’s size. The Highlanders (12-10 overall) are second in the league at 8-4, two games behind leader Coastal Carolina. HPU is 11-11, 6-5. “Their big guys don’t like to come out of the paint so teams are packing their defenses in and daring their guards to shoot,” Cherry said. “We’re going to something like that but a little differently because we are smaller.” HPU will be trying to bounce back from a 70-66 loss at Longwood in which the Panthers blew a 10point lead in the final 10 minutes. “It was disappointing but it wasn’t the low point of the season, Cherry said. “We actually played pretty good overall. We dominated for the first 35-36 minutes and then made a couple of turnovers that let them cut the lead from 10 down to three in about 30 seconds. It’s tough to lose one like that but we played a lot worse in the loss to VMI at home and on the road to S.C. State. “We don’t have to play perfect to beat Radford. We didn’t the first time but we played well. We’ve got to stay locked on defense. We’ve got to get out and create turnovers and we can’t let their guys get the angles underneath and get a lot of easy baskets. If we play like in the first game. we’ve got a good shot to win.” | 888-3519

Tar Heels eye crucial victory at Maryland BY BRIANA GORMAN ENTERPRISE DURHAM BUREAU

CHAPEL HILL – With nine games left on its schedule, North Carolina’s window of opportunity to make the NCAA Tournament is getting smaller and smaller. The Tar Heels need to win at least five more games to have a shot of slipping into the bracket without winning the ACC Tournament, and they’ll get another chance to get back on track today when they visit Maryland (2 p.m., FSN). Parts of Maryland were walloped with up to two feet of snow over the weekend, but the game is still on as scheduled. UNC (13-9, 2-5) is coming off a 74-70 loss to Virginia Tech on Thursday, and even though the Tar Heels played with

the effort and intensity that had been lacking the past few weeks, they still left Blacksburg, Va., without a win. The key for the Heels today will be if they can carry that intensity over into a game against a tougher opponent. Even though the Terps are unranked in the national polls, they are second in the ACC. Maryland (15-6, 5-2 ACC) is coming off a 7167 victory over Florida State on Thursday, and its two league losses were at Wake Forest and at Clemson. The Terps are led by senior Greivis Vasquez, who is the ACC’s fourthleading scorer with 17.7 points per game, and he is second in the league with six assists per game. The ACC’s assist leader is UNC’s Larry Drew II with 6.2 per game.



Speedskater evokes memories of 1936 Olympian BY STEVE HANF ENTERPRISE SPORTS WRITER

HIGH POINT – Heather Richardson owns the title of “current Olympian” from the state of North Carolina. Harry Williamson Jr. went down in history as the Tarheel state’s first Olympian. Both walked through the hallowed halls of High Point High School – as it was called when Williamson graduated in 1931 – and High Point Central, where Richardson received her diploma in 2007. While Richardson enRichardson ters her final preparation stages for speedskating in these Winter Olympics, Williamson starred on the track in High Point and at the University of North Carolina. He qualified for the 1936 Summer Games in Berlin in the 800 meters. A fellow by the name of Jesse Owens took center stage during Adolf Hitler’s showcase event for the Nazi propaganda machine. Williamson, meanwhile, simply tried to build on his third-place finish in a time of 1 minute, 51.3 seconds at the U.S. Olympic qualifier. Williamson, who died in 2000 shortly after induction into the North Carolina Sports Hall of Fame, recalled in an Enterprise story in 1996 how tired he was after two days of qualifying heats and semifinal races – both of which he won. When Williamson lined up for the sixman final, his time of 1:55.8 placed him last. American teammate John Woodruff took the gold in 1:52.9. Still, the simple fact that High Point could boast of an Olympic qualifier made for quite a burst of civic pride. William Horney Jr., now 93 years old,


High Point’s Harry Williamson (3) competes at an event in London following his run to the 1936 Olympics in Berlin. graduated from High Point in 1934, just a few years behind Williamson. The lifelong High Point resident recalled “a tall, goodlooking, skinny guy – and he could really run,” but lost touch with Williamson after the runner spent his working years in New York and retired to Charlotte.

“It was a big deal,” Horney said of the Olympic performance. “It was important. Bill Horney wouldn’t be remembering it all these years if it wasn’t important.” Years later, how many people will be saying the same things about Richardson in the 2010 Vancouver Games?

“It was a big thing in High Point. I think it’s wonderful,” Horney said of the speedskater. “I wish we had had more (Olympians) in between, but we’re thankful for the ones we’ve had.” | 888-3526

Vonn, Vancouver give Alpine chance to lift profile THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Lindsey Vonn recalls being mobbed by fans when Alpine skiing’s World Cup made its debut stop at Bansko, Bulgaria, a year ago. Even with her husband, her coach, two trainers and two bodyguards flanking her, Vonn felt trapped by the boisterous crowd while trying to exit the finish area. “We just couldn’t escape,” the twotime overall World Cup champion says, “and people were attacking me and trying to jump on me. It was definitely a surreal experience.” Vonn has grown accustomed to such scenes when she’s overseas, where ski racing is a major sport. As 2006 Olympic gold medalist Ted Ligety explains: “In Europe, ski racing is definitely a lot crazier and a lot more popular.” In the United States? Not so much. “I don’t think most people in Times Square would know what ski racing was, let alone know who I was,” Vonn says with a sigh. “But that’s fine. It’s nice to be anonymous and go places without people knowing who you are, sometimes.” The 25-year-old Vonn, who lives and trains in Vail, Colo., sees the close-tohome Feb. 12-28 Vancouver Olympics as a real chance to boost Alpine skiing’s profile in the United States. Others in the sport agree – and see the

charismatic and talented American as someone who could help make that happen. “Everybody knows the Olympics is a huge opportunity for us,” U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association CEO Bill Marolt says. “It’s our chance to shine. It’s our chance to promote the organization – USSA, U.S. Ski Team, U.S. Snowboarding – but it’s also our opportunity to promote the sport. We can make some real progress with some success.” That points to Vonn, whom Marolt calls “the whole package.” “She understands her role. ... She understands that she’s got to be ready, and she’s got to perform. But then, after the athletic contest, and after she’s had success, she needs to make herself available – to fans, to kids, to media, to sponsors,” Marolt says. “That’s critical for her and her future, and it’s critical for the industry, and what we’re trying to do as a sport.” Alpine skiing, of course, is hardly the only niche sport hoping to build some buzz at these Winter Games. Officials from such events as curling (think brooms) and biathlon (think skis and guns) know what’s at stake, too. “It’s huge for us. We’re expecting or anticipating full-game coverage both of the morning and afternoon draws. ... We hope to parlay that into other coverage down the road,” says Rick Patzke, USA Curling’s chief operating officer.

“This is our time to shine and then build off of that,” Patzke adds. Figure skating is the no-doubt-aboutit No. 1 Winter Olympics event when it comes to U.S. TV ratings. But its prominence in the United States has declined over the last four years because there is no blockbuster American female star right now, the way Michelle Kwan was for a decade.

No American woman has earned a medal at the world championships since 2006, and neither Kimmie Meissner, who won gold that year, nor Sasha Cohen, who won bronze, is on the U.S. Olympic team this time around. Still, counting on a long-standing general appeal, NBC will air every figure skating event live and in prime time in the Eastern and Central time zones.

As a Saturday morning brightened up the road, wind cooled through my bones like a snake. I was sitting in the truck waiting to go to the field to start hunting. Next I realized my dad had gotten me a new shotgun! The ride to the field was only five minutes, but it seemed like three hours. When we drove to the field, I shot out of the truck, grabbed the smooth shotgun, loaded it, and sat down to wait. The birds were chirping and the air was crisp. After a few hours, maybe two, we decided to go to a different spot, one with more corn and shade. In about forty-five minutes, eight gobblers wobbled and gobbled their way over. I felt a chill in my backbone. I pulled out the heavy shotgun. The gobblers had no idea what was going on, but before you could say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Johnnyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s apple pie,â&#x20AC;? POW! My ears hurt from the loud sound, but I was so pumped, my heart felt like a punching bag being hit by a pro kick boxer. I had just shot my first gobbler! This time the trip back seemed faster than a race car. I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to tell everyone what I had done. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait till next year to go hunting again, but I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say the same for the turkeys! â&#x20AC;&#x201C; JUSTIN TODD FOURTH GRADER AT FRIENDSHIP ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

Bedard, Mariners reunite with 1-year deal SEATTLE (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Despite shoulder surgeries and disappointment in Seattle during each of the last two seasons, free-agent left-hander Erik Bedard is coming back to the Mariners. General manager Jack Zduriencik announced Saturday the team and the oft-injured 30-yearold agreed to a one-year contract with a mutual option for 2011. The contract is expected to have a base salary a fraction of the $7.75 million Bedard made last season. It includes incentive clauses. He is rehabilitating following surgery in August to repair a torn labrum in his pitching shoulder. The normal recovery time is 10-12 months. Bedard could make his season debut in June at the earliest. He had surgery in September 2008 to remove a cyst in his left shoulder.

LOS ANGELES – Steve Stricker opened a five-shot lead at Riviera before darkness stopped play in the rain-delayed Northern Trust Open. Stricker took the lead Saturday when Dustin Johnson lost his tee shot on the third hole and made double bogey. From there, Stricker kept hitting it close and making enough putts to be 14-under par through 14 holes when it was too dark to continue. He was 4 under for his round, and will return this morning to face a 30-foot birdie putt on the 15th hole. Luke Donald managed to finish his round at 67 and was five shots behind, along with Andres Romero, who is in the final group. Johnson never recovered from his double bogey and was six shots behind. Phil Mickelson’s hopes for a third straight victory appear over. He shot 71 and was 10 shots behind.


wood and Miguel Angel Jimenez each shot 68 Saturday to catch overnight leader Thongchai Jaidee after the third round of the Dubai Desert Classic. Thongchai shot a 69 to keep a share of the lead, and was also joined by Alvaro Quiros (67) in a quartet with 11-under totals of 205. Rory McIlroy was two shots back in fifth place after a 69. Tom Watson shot 71 to trail the leaders by nine strokes. Despite being joined by some of golf’s biggest names atop the leaderboard, Thongchai said he liked his chances ahead of today’s final round. “I am confident I can win here,” the 41year-old former Thai army paratrooper said. “In today’s round, I did not hit many greens over the first nine holes, only four in regulation, but I only had 10 putts. If I hit more fairways and greens in the final round then I will score better, and I know I am capable of that.” Westwood is looking for another title in the desert, after winning the Dubai World Championship in November.

“If the weather stays calm as it did for the third round it’s going to be a birdie feast,” Westwood said. Quiros said learned a lot when partnering the 60-year-old Tom Watson during the first two days. “Tom is a very smart player,” Quiros said. “He’s is a very clever player and even at 60 years old that still makes him competitive. Playing with him, he made three very smart lay-ups instead of going for greens.”

KIRADECH TAKES 2-SHOT LEAD BANGKOK, Thailand – Thailand’s Kiradech Aphibarnrat has a two-stroke lead after the third round of the Asian Tour International on Saturday. Aphibarnrat capped his round with an eagle and is at 9-under 207. He leads South Korea’s Hwang Inn-choon, who had the day’s best score with a 67. Singapore’s Lam Chih Bing (71) and American rookie David Johnson (69) were another shot back. Kiradech is a 20-year-old former world junior champion.

Dashing through the show SPECIAL | HPE

Brad Skinner, 17, is shown modeling various outfits at a weeklong competition last month in Los Angeles.

Teen takes first big steps toward possible modeling/acting career BY JIMMY TOMLIN ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER


hile attending a fashion show one evening last month, Karen Skinner marveled at one particular young man on the runway. It wasn’t so much his appearance, though he certainly looked attractive in a kid-next-door kind of way – and even more so in those spiffy tuxedos he was modeling. No, it was the young man’s attitude – his enthusiasm, his confidence, his unmistakable sway over his audience – that mesmerized her. She thought she knew this kid – it was her own son, after all – but here, in this venue, in

’Normally, I’m really shy, but when I’m on the stage, I’m definitely a different person.’ Brad Skinner Junior, Ledford High School this moment, she hardly recognized him. “He was dancing and riling the crowd up, and I said, ‘I cannot believe you,’” Skinner recalls. “I had never seen this from him.” Brad Skinner, a 17-year-old junior at Ledford High School, chuckles at his mom’s reaction. “Yeah,” he says, “normally I’m really shy, but when I’m on the stage, I’m definitely a different person.” If you had told Brad’s family and friends six months ago that he was about to embark on a promising career

as a professional model and/or actor, they probably would’ve laughed at you. Heck, Brad might’ve laughed at you, too. But now, with a few modeling jobs and an elite modeling competition under his belt – a competition at which he excelled, by the way – the prospect doesn’t seem quite so laughable. Participating in his first major modeling competition – the International Modeling and Talent Association’s weeklong event last month in Los Angeles – Brad snagged several honors, including runner-up for Junior Male Model of the Year. He also won second runner-up in the swimwear and jeans categories, and honorable mention in runway and fashion print. Not too shabby for a newcomer, huh? “Not only are you competing against about 1,500 people,” Brad’s mom explains, “but at the end of the competition, you hope the agents that are there – about 300 of them – will notice you enough to give you a callback. On the last day, all of the agents are in this big bullpen room and will meet with you if they picked you for a callback. About 50 to 60 percent of the kids get callbacks, and they get an average of about three each. Brad got 17 callbacks.” Brad, who represented the Barbizon modeling and talent agency out of Charlotte, admits to being nervous during the competition, but he tried not to let it show. “This was like a once-in-a-lifetime chance to get callbacks from these major agencies,” he says. “Looking at all the contestants there – there were so many people – I got some butterflies in my stomach, but I tried to stay confi-

ear Abby: When my three sons were small, I used to kiss them on the lips as a sign of affection. Now they are 13, 11 and 8, and it has been several years since I have done it.

Growing up, I used to hate that we rarely showed our emotions. I vowed to be different, but now Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m afraid I have fallen into the same nondemonstrative pattern.

Dear Dad: Your older boys may be less affectionate because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a teenager and a pre-teen and concerned that kissing you would appear unmasculine or childish. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible that when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re older they will realize the importance of expressing warm emotions as you did. Talk to your sons. Tell them you miss the demonstrations of affection and that while growing up you felt your family had missed out on something important. Many families are extremely affectionate, and in many cultures demonstrations of affection be-

Endometriosis can be big problem How a person for women of childbearing ages turns out comes from within D


uestion: Tell me why some kids with every advantage and opportunity seem to turn out bad, while others raised in terrible homes become pillars in the community. I know one young man who grew up in squalid circumstances, yet he is such a fine person today. How did his parents manage to raise such a responsible son when they didn’t even seem to care? Dr. Dobson: Neither heredity nor environment will account for all human behavior. There is something else there – something from within – that also operates to make us who we are. Some behavior is caused, and some plainly isn’t. Several years ago, for example, I had dinner with two parents who had unofficially “adopted” a 13-year-old boy. This youngster followed their son home one afternoon and asked if he could spend the night. As it turned out, he stayed with them for almost a week without so much as a phone call coming from his mother. It was later learned that she works 16 hours a day and has no interest in her son. Her alcoholic husband divorced her several years ago and left town without a trace. The boy had been abused, unloved and ignored through much of his life. Given this background, what kind of kid do you think he is today – a druggie? A foul-mouthed delinquent? A lazy, insolent bum? No. He is polite to adults; he is a hard worker; he makes good grades in school and enjoys helping around the house. This boy is like a lost puppy who desperately wants a good home. He begged the family to adopt him officially so he could have a real father and a loving mother. His own mom couldn’t care less. How could this teenager be so well-disciplined and polished despite his lack of training? I don’t know. It is simply within him. He reminds me of my wonderful friend David Hernandez. David and his parents came to America illegally from Mexico more than 50 years ago and nearly starved to

death before they found work. They eventually survived FOCUS by helping to harvest ON THE the poFAMILY tato crop throughDr. James out the Dobson state of ■■■ California. During this era, David lived under trees or in the open fields. His father made a stove out of an oil drum half-filled with dirt. The open campfire was the centerpiece of their home. David never had a roof over his head until his parents finally moved into an abandoned chicken coop. His mother covered the boarded walls with cheap wallpaper, and David thought they were living in luxury. Then one day, the city of San Jose condemned the area, and David’s “house” was torn down. He couldn’t understand why the community would destroy so fine a place. We’ll talk more about David’s story next time. Question: Should a college-educated woman feel that she has wasted her training if she chooses not to use it professionally? I mean, why should I bother to go through school to be a professional if I’m going to wind up raising kids and being a fulltime homemaker? Dr. Dobson: A person doesn’t go to college just to prepare for a line of work – or at least, that shouldn’t be the reason for being there. The purpose for getting a college education is to broaden your world and enrich your intellectual life. Whether or not it leads to a career is not the point. Nothing invested in the cultivation of your own mind is ever really wasted. If you have the desire to learn and the opportunity to go to school, I think you should reach for it. Your career plans can be finalized later. DR. DOBSON is founder and Chairman Emeritus of the nonprofit organization Focus on the Family, Colorado Springs, Colo. 80995 (

ear Dr. Donohue: Will you please devote some space to endometriosis? My doctor believes it’s the reason for my horribly painful menstrual periods. The pain can be so bad that I have to stay home from work. I’m afraid of losing my job. How is it definitely proven, and how is it treated? – J.T.

The endometrium is the lining of the uterus. Under the influence of monthly hormones, it grows in preparation for nurturing a fertilized egg. If fertilization doesn’t take place, the endometrium is shed during the menstrual period. With endometriosis, bits of the uterine lining have found their way to other places in the body, mostly locations in the pelvis. Endometrium can stick to pelvic ligaments and other tissues. It can cover one or both ovaries. On occasion, it migrates to distant sites, like the urinary bladder and the coverings of the heart and lungs. One explanation for how this happens is that the endometrium shed during menstruation finds its way into the fallopian tubes, and from there into the pelvis and other sites. The fallopian tubes are the tubes through which an egg passes from the ovary into the uterus. Transplanted endometrium behaves in the same manner as endometrium within the uterus. It grows due to the stimulation of the monthly hormone surge. However, it cannot be shed like

Magazine offers tips for port calls NEW YORK (AP) – The price you pay to book a cruise is only part of the cost of your trip if you plan on taking any shore excursions. In the January issue of Conde Nast Traveler magazine, consumer news editor Wendy Perrin offers tips for getting the most out of your port calls and land tours. First, if you are set on visiting one particular sight or city, book your cruise to begin, end or overnight in that port. Otherwise you risk missing out, as cruises can cancel port calls for all kinds of reasons, from weather to workers’ strikes in the host country. Second, plan ahead for how you’ll spend your time in port. The ship concierge will try to sell you the cruise line’s tours, and those are going to be expensive, so research your excursion options before you get on the boat. Check out tourism Web sites for any local events the day you’ll be there, and visit Web sites specializing in day trips.

the uterine lining. Pain is one of the main symptoms of endometriosis, and the pain usually occurs a day or two before menstruation begins. Painful inHEALTH tercourse is another symptom. Infertility Dr. Paul is more prevalent in Donohue women with endo■■■ metriosis. Ultrasound is quite helpful in making a diagnosis. The ultimate test comes from the doctor’s actually seeing endometrial tissue with a scope inserted into the pelvic cavity through a small incision. Treatments are many. For mild cases, anti-inflammatory drugs like Advil can ease pain. Birth control is effective. Progestins – hormones that antagonize the effect of estrogen on endometrial tissue – are another option. Surgical removal of the transplanted tissue can be done, again often with a scope and instruments passed through small surface incisions. And this is only a sample of possible treatments. Dear Dr. Donohue: My arms are covered with bruises. They’re other places too. People ask if I’m being abused. I am not. I feel good and am 37. What’s going on? – L.H. Those bruises are telling you to get to a doctor quickly. It could be that your platelet count is low.

Platelets are the blood cells that initiate clot formation. Or it could be that you have a deficiency of clotting factors, blood proteins that work in concert with platelets to produce a clot. This is an issue that has to be investigated right away. Arm bruising in older people more often is caused by a loss of cushioning tissues for arteries. It is not usually a serious condition. Dear Dr. Donohue: How soon can one have intercourse after having a heart attack? My husband is 56 and is recovering from a heart attack. It happened about two months ago. He does everything he did before the attack, but he is frightened to have sex. He has heard it’s too much of a strain on the heart. Is it? – B.F. Most are able to have sexual relations three to four weeks after discharge from the hospital. The demands of sex are not that great. They are about equivalent to climbing up two flights of stairs. Your husband’s doctor can reassure him that intercourse is safe. He’s the one who best knows how much exertion your husband’s heart can handle. DR. DONOHUE regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

LIPOSUCTION Liposuction continues to be one of the most popular cosmetic procedures. Well over 200,000 men and women have a fatty area of their body reduced each year. This is a procedure that is fun for me to perform, especially because I can help you feel better about yourself. It’s truly a win-win! Let’s talk about what we do and how liposuction works. The procedure takes place after you have been sedated. We administer IV fluid with pain medication and epinephrine into the area of your body where the surgery will be performed. This helps with pain control right after surgery. The effect of the IV gradually goes away, but we start you on pain pills early so you can continue to experience pain control. The epinephrine makes blood vessels shrink which results in less bleeding, and bruising. It also helps the area look better sooner.

Next comes the actual liposuction. I can get real fancy here, but what’s the point? The bottom line is we take a hollow metal tube, a cannula, and vacuum out the fat! You may have seen this procedure on TV, and it can seem rather gruesome. However, I think the videoed surgeons are showing off a bit for the camera! At the end of the procedure we place you in a compression garment similar to a girdle. This is an important step because the area where the cannula has sucked out the fat has become like a tunnel. The garment compresses this area to give you a smooth contour. And I know from personal experience that it makes the area feel better as well. I know because I’ve had liposuction too on my abdomen and neck. You will wear this garment most of the time for several weeks. You can take it off at any time, wash it, take a shower, and then just put it back on when it’s done drying in

the dryer. Recovery is not too bad. It feels like a deep bruise. Most people can return to desk type work in about 5-7days. It takes some a little longer, some return to work a little sooner. Everybody is different. Will the fat come back? Well, no. If we suck it out it’s gone! But, getting more serious here, we don’t take ALL the fat out of the hips, or love handles, or wherever. The fat that is left behind can grow. But, if you gain some weight afterwards, the fat doesn’t just settle in the liposuctioned areas. It most likely will be distributed around the entire body. If you maintain your weight, which is the best scenario of course, there is no change---it’s permanent! So, come on. What have you got to lose? Only the fat, I guess! Virgil V. Willard, II, MD

Campus restoration revives Wright’s vision BY JENNIFER KAY ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER



“Water Dome” fountain, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, is at Florida Southern College in Lakeland, Fla. The campus is home to the world’s largest single-site collection of Frank Lloyd Wright architecture.


“Child of the Sun” visitor center at Florida Southern College: Tours: Guided tours are available at 11 a.m. ($10 basic tour) and 1 p.m. ($18 in-depth tour) on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Call (863) 680-4444 for information and tour reservations. Campus maps are also available for self-guided tours. Water Dome: The Water Dome fountain gushes for about an hour, four times a day: 10:15 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 2:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.

CHILD OF THE SUN Overshadowed by his homes and studios elsewhere, Florida Southern College is the only campus Wright designed, and it’s the largest collection of his buildings in one place. “This architecture represents the laws of harmony and rhythm,” Wright said in 1950, when the college presented him with an honorary degree. “It’s organic architecture, and we have seen little of it so far. It’s like a little green shoot growing in a concrete pavement.” Orange groves once filled the 100-acre, hilltop campus that slopes down into Lake Hollingsworth. Wright designed about a mile-and-a-half of covered walkways called esplanades to link his buildings through the groves. Almost all the orange trees are gone now, but the esplanades echo the site’s original environment. The trees had been planted 18 feet apart, so Wright staggered the columns supporting the low coverings at the same interval. In his trademark style, Wright repeats an abstract, geometric tree pattern through all the esplanades: Each column has a vertical base for a trunk, triangles form the branches and the thin concrete roof that connects them

makes a shady canopy. All the esplanades have been restored to the beachy beige color Wright chose for his campus buildings. A green copper, triangle-shaped trim has been revived at the edge of the canopy, except in the places where Wright substituted paint when a wartime shortage deprived him of copper. “If that’s what was original to Wright’s designs, that’s what is being restored,” said tour guide Mark Tlachac.

WATER DOME The biggest restoration project on campus is also Wright’s largest fountain project. Wright envisioned the “Water Dome” fountain, first completed in 1948 as the campus centerpiece, but it was a flat pool, and then a concrete plaza for decades until an extensive restoration was finished in 2007. Arcs of water now gush from the fountain’s 74 nozzles four times a day. The arcs create a liquid dome that can reach heights up to 45 feet – three stories of

water – thanks to funding and engineering technology unavailable during Wright’s lifetime. The circular pool is painted the same aqua color Wright originally selected, a departure from the “Cherokee red” he preferred for concrete floors and other architectural accents throughout his other structures.

SMALLER PROJECTS The college also includes the only theaterin-the-round Wright ever built. The Fletcher Theatre is a circular amphitheater tucked into a corner of the long corridors of the Lucius Pond Ordway Building. Its convex roof has been repaired

the Annie Pfeiffer Chapel, the tallest of the Wright buildings on campus, has included removing air conditioning ducts from exterior balconies and restoring original glass doors. This helps return the building to the more “natural” state Wright intended, Tlachac says, without modern conveniences obliterating the pyramid and arrow shapes below a bow-tieshaped belfry. Wright restoration projects require paying attention to the smallest details, such as door hinges. Wright wanted “piano hinges” – a solid line of small hinges for each door, instead of just two hinges at the top and bottom – on many of the doors, including the entrance to the Danforth Chapel. The hinges maintained Wright’s geometric lines, and strengthened doors made from plywood, a new material at the time Wright’s designs were be-

ing built, Tlachac says.

BUILDING BLOCKS Wright originally designed 18 buildings for the college, though only 12 structures were built. His designs for faculty housing, which were never constructed, will be the basis for a new visitor center planned within the next couple years, college officials say. Restoration will continue as the college gets funding. Upkeep of the Wright buildings can be a trial-and-error process, not unlike the experiments Wright made to get the shade of his “textile blocks” just right. The blocks in the facade of the Carter, Walbridge, Hawkins Seminar Building vary from gray to pink to brown to yellow as Wright tried sand from several Florida locales to mix with cement until he found the pale hue he wanted for his buildings (it was too expensive to just throw out the mistakes).

to improve the acoustics for theater classes, lectures and performances. Peeling paint was stripped to reveal the original sand-and-concrete blocks of its walls. Carpeting was pulled and the floor was restored to its original “Cherokee red,” a deep burgandy-brown hue that Wright called a favorite color. A small plaza inside the Ordway Building has been redesigned to match the spirit, if not the details, of Wright’s original design for the space. Wright had envisioned a long, poollike feature that was never built. Shrubs and trees filled the flat courtyard between glass-walled classrooms until 2008, when a grassy, sunken garden was installed as an open-air classroom and community space. Lily pads float in a square, Wright-designed pond maintained at one end of the new plaza. Preservation work at


AKELAND, Fla. – Like any other sunbather, Frank Lloyd Wright’s “Child of the Sun” withered in Florida’s heat, humidity and harsh sunlight. Moisture seeped through the sand-andcement blocks Wright used to build the chapels, library, planetarium and classroom and administrative buildings of Florida Southern College in the central Florida town of Lakeland, about 50 miles southwest of Orlando. The iron support bars knitting the blocks together rusted and swelled, causing walls to buckle. Some of the “Child of the Sun” structures, constructed between 1939 and 1958, were altered as the college’s needs changed, dimming the sunlight Wright wanted to illuminate his “organic” buildings. The Wright-designed buildings on campus were named to the World Monument Fund’s 100 most endangered sites in 2007. Funded by several grants, ongoing restoration projects are giving visitors a glimpse of the famed architect’s original vision, and tours are available as well.

Feng Zhenghu has been camping out at Narita International Airport since early November to protest Chinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s refusal to let him enter his homeland. Feng had angered the Chinese government with writings on alleged wrongdoing by local authorities and for sup-

But it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t clear until Tuesday whether China would allow him to re-enter the country â&#x20AC;&#x201C; he had been denied entry eight times since June, prompting his protest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Chinese officials told me that they are giving me permission to go back to Shanghai,â&#x20AC;?

A. it is not illegal, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best not to laminate your card. Laminated cards make it difficult, if not impossible, to detect important security features and an employer may refuse to accept it. The Social Security Act requires the Commissioner of Social Security to issue cards that cannot be counterfeited. We incorporate many features that protect the cardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s integrity. That includes highly specialized paper and printing techniques â&#x20AC;&#x201C; some visible to the naked eye and some not. Further, we continue to actively explore and adopt new technologies that hamper duplication. Keep your Social Security card in a safe place with your other important papers. Do not carry it with you.

Coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loving dachshund turns nasty

Dear S.S.: You have my sympathy. Mad Max needs to have time with just you. He has bonded with your husband and is playing top dog over you. Having time with just you for a few days (with your husband out of the house for as long as possible) would help. You must ignore his growls and snarls, but your husband shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. He may be getting a kick out of this, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your husband who must get it across to Max that challenging or threatening you is totally unacceptable. He should immediately reprimand Bad Max and get him off the sofa if they are sitting together, or put Max in another room for a timeout. Also try switching roles and routines â&#x20AC;&#x201C; have your husband feed the dog if you normally do, and you should walk the dog if that is his responsibility. If Max sleeps on the bed with you, your husband should order him â&#x20AC;&#x153;downâ&#x20AC;? and you, later, invite him â&#x20AC;&#x153;up.â&#x20AC;? Dear Dr. Fox: My cat is driving me nuts. He is a healthy, 8-year-old neutered male. In December 2008, he had an intestinal blockage and became quite sick; he spent a week at the vet. In January, I noticed that he was more affectionate and had started licking everything. I checked the Internet for possible problems, but found nothing and, because he appears to be healthy and eating well, I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have cause for concern.

He licks my hair, arms, the headboard of the bed, the sheets, the sofa cushions, ANIMAL and I have even DOCTOR caught him licking our Dr. Michael dog. Fox This just â&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem normal. I feed him half a can of Fancy Feast in the morning, and he and my two other cats share a perpetual feeder of Purina Cat Chow for healthy balance. Looking forward to your response. Thank you. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; K.P., Elizabeth City, N.C. Dear K.P.: You are right to be concerned about your catâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obsessive-compulsive licking. This can be associated with inflammation and discomfort from gingivitis and inflammatory bowel disease, as well as several other maladies. Follow this rule: Any change in an animalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s normal behavior and/or daily routine calls for a full veterinary checkup. Visit my Web site, and transition your cat onto a better diet because what you are feeding him may well be at the root of the problem. Many ingredients in manufactured cat foods cause digestive and intestinal problems. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Perpetual feedersâ&#x20AC;? are a prescription for fat, diabetic and otherwise unhealthy cats. Dear Dr. Fox: I have a 6-year-old Lab/beagle mix who has had many problems â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the latest being two mast-cell tumors. The tumors were removed on separate occasions, and the surgeries were successful; however, we were told that we needed to be diligent about checking for lumps. Our veterinary oncologist has recommended that the dog be put on 4,000 milligrams of fish oil and 10 milligrams of Pepcid. She suggested Pepcid because dogs with mast-cell tumors tend to get ulcers, and the fish oil helps discourage the return of the mast cells. Also, a friend of mine in Florida said that her holistic vet uses foodgrade liquid aloe in diets

ear Dr. Fox: There is a weird thing happening with our 5-year-old unneutered male longhaired dachshund â&#x20AC;&#x201C; he has completely turned against me. For no reason, as far as we can tell. I just got up one morning about two weeks ago, said â&#x20AC;&#x153;Good morning, Max,â&#x20AC;? and he growled at me. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more. If I walk into the same room, he gets up and walks out. If I offer him a treat, he turns away and will not accept it. If he is sitting with my husband and I walk by, he growls. Sometimes I can walk over to them, and he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t growl. But as soon as I speak, the growling starts. I have never hit him, only scolded him on occasion, as when he tips over a wastebasket. He has always been a good and loving dog. Everyone says he is â&#x20AC;&#x153;needyâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that is, he wants to be petted and scratched all the time. But he has turned out to be â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dogâ&#x20AC;? (my husbandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dog) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; he follows him wherever he goes. Until now, he has been affectionate to me. Do you have any idea what is going on with Max? I miss the sweet â&#x20AC;&#x153;doxieâ&#x20AC;? I had. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; S.S., West Branson, Mo.

for dogs that have had cancer. Neither my vet nor vet oncologist have heard of this before, but from what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve read on the Internet, it makes sense. What do you think of using food-grade aloe as a supplement? And how much should a 45pound dog drink? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; J.L., Falls Church, Va. Dear J.L.: There are many treatments that

can be integrated into a holistic therapeutic regimen for your dogâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cancer. I concur with what the two veterinarians recommend: You can give 1 tablespoon of aloe vera in your dogâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s food twice daily. I would also recommend New Chapterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s anti-inflammatory and anti-tumor Zyflamend and anti-cancer Immortal Mushrooms combina-

tion of beneficial fungi. Daily treatment with a mild antihistamine may also be beneficial, along with a super-antioxidant supplement such as N-acetyl-L-cysteine and alpha-lipoic acid. Above all, avoid any treatments that may compromise your dogâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s immune system, such as â&#x20AC;&#x153;boosterâ&#x20AC;? vaccinations and spot-on anti-flea drugs. Feed your dog a whole-food

diet rather than manufactured dog food, good nutrition being the first medicine. SEND YOUR QUESTIONS to Dr. Michael Fox, c/o The High Point Enterprise, P.O. Box 1009, High Point, NC 27261.

Up for grabs Republicans look to win control of Congress BY LIZ SIDOTI AP NATIONAL POLITICAL WRITER

WASHINGTON — Just weeks ago, it seemed inconceivable the Republicans could win control of Congress this fall. Not anymore. Almost by the day, Republicans are sensing fresh opportunities to pick up ground. Just Wednes-

In the House, Democrats hold a 256-178 advantage with one vacancy. day, former Indiana Sen. Dan Coats announced he would try to reclaim his old seat from Democrat Evan Bayh, who barely a year ago had been a finalist to be Barack Obama’s running mate. And Republicans nationwide are still celebrating Scott Brown’s January upset to take Edward Kennedy’s former seat in Massachusetts. A Republican takeover on Capitol Hill is still a long shot. But strategists in both parties now see at least narrow paths by which the GOP could win the House and, if the troubled environment for Democrats deteriorates further, possibly even the Senate.

“The likelihood is that Democrats hold the House and Senate,” says former Sen. Bob Kerrey, D-Neb., calling party members’ doom and gloom overstated. Still, he adds: “Democrats have got their hands full trying to navigate through unprecedented economic turmoil and two wars. And there’s no question that there’s anger out there.” With 10 months to go, 2010 is shaping up in one sense to be a traditional midterm election for a new president: The out-of-power party is poised to gain seats in both houses. The question now is whether it will be a historic election with Republicans actually seizing power in Congress. The Republicans would have to gain 40 seats in the 435-member House, ten in the 100-member Senate — a tall order no matter how upset voters are. But still. ... In the Senate, two Democratic seats are all but gone. North Dakota’s Byron Dorgan is retiring, and the Democrats don’t have anyone to challenge the Republican, Gov. John Hoeven. Democrats also are without a candidate for Delaware now that Vice President Joe Biden’s son eschewed a run against Republican Mike Castle. For a GOP takeover, incumbent Democrats also would have to lose in Colorado, where appointed Sen. Michael Bennet hasn’t run statewide and faces a primary; Nevada, where Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is unpopular but has a hefty bank account; Arkan-

Symbolically slapping Republicans with one hand, extending olive branches with the other, President Barack Obama is playing a dangerous political game. It’s not a new one. And it just might work. Fearful of losses in the November congressional and gubernatorial elections, Democrats have been urging Obama to help them stay competitive by throwing tougher punches at Republicans. Those calls grew louder after the Democrats’ stunning loss two weeks ago of a Senate seat in Massachusetts, seen as an indictment of Democratic control over Congress and the White House and a potentially disturbing bellwether for the fall voting. Obama is complying, day after day. Since the recent State of the Union address, the president has held two campaign-style town hall meetings, including one Tuesday in New Hampshire, where two House races and a Senate seat are in play this year. He used both events to call out Republicans for opposing him on health care, federal spending and other issues. He also spoke at a meeting last week of House Republican lawmakers, where each side aired complaints against the other.


President Barack Obama takes a question from Sen. Kristen Gillibrand, D-N.Y., (left back to camera) Wednesday during the Senate Democratic Policy Committee Issues Conference at the Newseum in Washington. Seated at podium (from left) are Sen. Byron Dorgan, D-N.D., Senate Majority Whip Richard Durbin, D-Ill., and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev. sas, where Sen. Blanche Lincoln suffers from representing a GOP-leaning state; Pennsylvania, where party-switching Sen. Arlen Specter is extraordinarily vulnerable, and Illinois, where a dogfight is certain for President Obama’s old seat. Republicans would have to hold on to all the Senate seats they have now, hardly a sure thing. And the GOP also would have to beat incumbents in New York, where no Republican has emerged to challenge appointed Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, and Connecticut, where Democrat Richard Blumenthal is comfortably leading all GOP contenders in polls. If all that somehow happens, the tipping point could be California. “Every state is now in play,” California Sen. Bar-

bara Boxer said one day after the Massachusetts election. It was a frank recognition that no Democrat is safe — not even a three-term liberal with bunches of money in a solidly Democratic state. In the House, Democrats hold a 256-178 advantage with one vacancy. But 49 Democrats are in districts that Republican presidential candidate John McCain won in 2008. And many are freshmen who rode into power on Obama’s coattails in an election that saw a voting surge by minorities and youths. Obama won’t be on the ballot this time, and he has a poor track record so far when it comes to turning out his 2008 backers for fellow Democrats. House Republicans have their own challenges.


In more than 50 districts, divisive GOP primaries are certain to drain bank accounts and force Republicans into taking positions that could be troublesome come the general election. In many cases, “tea party” candidates are running to the right of establishment-endorsed Republicans, casting them as too moderate for the party and too cozy with Washington. In other races, Republican candidates are dropping out to run as third party candidates who could siphon votes from the eventual GOP nominee. To understand why incumbents are nervous, look no further than the persistent 10 percent unemployment rate and the country’s bitterness over Wall Street and bank bailouts.



ASK A.P.: Journalist fields Super Bowl ring question. 2F


3F 5F 6F



Eduardo Delarosa of Mexico takes pictures of past Super Bowl rings at the NFL Experience in Tampa, Fla., last year. A reader-submitted question about Super Bowl Rings is being answered as part of an Associated Press Q&A column called “Ask AP.”

Questions concern Super Bowl rings, charging banks for risk THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

If an insurance company thinks you take a lot of risks, it might charge you higher premiums. Is the government considering charging banks a fee for the same reason? Curiosity about a riskbased levy proposed for banks inspired one of the questions in this edition of “Ask AP,” a weekly Q&A column where AP journalists respond to readers’ questions about the news. If you have your own news-related question that you’d like to see answered by an AP reporter or editor, send it to, with “Ask AP” in the subject line. And please include your full name and hometown so they can be published with your question. You can also find Ask AP on AP Mobile, a multimedia news service available on Internetenabled cell phones.

totaling 3.61 carats. The rings were cast in 14-karat yellow gold with black antique backgrounds. Female employees received a smaller version because the full-size ring would have been too big for them to wear. Lower-level employees received a ring with less gold and fewer diamonds, since buying the fullsize ring for the entire organization would be prohibitively expensive. The NFL pays for up to 150 rings at $5,000 apiece, with the club picking up the rest of the cost. When the Giants won the Super Bowl, the team said the rings cost about $5,500 each, but were valued at $25,000. Jewelry companies such as Jostens manufacture the rings.

of the Wall Street crisis in the fall of 2008. The levy would be assessed only on large financial institutions with assets of more than $50 billion — a group estimated at about 50. The fee would be 0.15 percent tax on the liabilities of those firms, excluding any insured deposits. Liabilities are a way of measuring an institution’s risk level, so you can think of the proposed fee as a tax on the risks that banks take. The White House expects the fee to raise about $90 billion over 10 years. The Congressional Budget Office expects the long-term shortfall of the rescue fund — known as the Troubled Asset Relief Program, or TARP — to be $99 billion. That means the fee could recoup the TARP losses in 11 years. Jim Kuhnhenn Associated Press Writer, Washington Q. Does any individual own the copyright to “The Star Spangled Banner”?

RALEIGH – Republican U.S. Sen. Richard Burr, benefiting from incumbency and strong business ties, starts the year with a 13-1 money advantage over prospective Democratic challengers. Burr had $4.3 million in his campaign coffers at the end of the year, compared to $320,058 for former state Sen. Cal Cunningham, $233,327 for Secretary of State Elaine

Marshall, and $116,00 for Chapel Hill attorney Ken Lewis, according to campaign disclosure reports filed Monday with the Federal Elections Commission. “There are only two ways to keep score until election day,” said Gary Pearce, a veteran Democratic strategist. “One is money and one is polls. Burr is in a strong position, no doubt about it.” Burr’s financial prowess was on display one night recently in Raleigh at the Angus Barn restaurant, where he raised $425,000

– more money than any of his opponents had raised all of last year – at an event which featured Karl Rove, former chief strategist for President George W. Bush. The event underscored Burr’s strong support in the business community. Among the hosts: Jim Goodnight, the founder of Cary software company SAS; Dennis Gillings, chairman of Quintiles, Ted Fowler, head of Golden Corral, and the political committees of McDonalds, Cisco and Northwestern Mutual.


MORGANTON – The snow and rain so far this winter turned many dirt roads into a muddy mess. Most are private roads, where residents are at the mercy of the weather. Neither state nor county road crews can maintain or clear private

roads. Conditions along the roads are so bad that some people can’t get out. Shirley Tucker’s father and mother live with Tucker’s sister and brother-in-law, Robert and Barbara Greer, on Razor’s Ridge Road off N.C. 126 in Morganton. Her father, Herbert Sutherland, is terminally ill and receives dialysis three times a week.

Tucker said the transportation she arranged to take her father to dialysis can’t get down the road to pick him up, so family members have to take him. Tucker said she’s scared that something will happen to her father and she won’t be able to get to him. She doesn’t want to miss her father’s last moments.

Robert Greer said Razor’s Ridge Road has no gravel. This winter the road is deteriorated so badly that even 4-wheel-drive vehicles have a tough time on it. He said it looks more like an old logging route. Twenty-four homes are along the road. “If something happens, what are we going to do?”

Crooner Tony Bennett paints 2010 Jazz Fest poster NEW ORLEANS (AP) – Grammy-winning jazz crooner Tony Bennett is taking part in this year’s New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival – but he won’t be singing. A portrait Bennett painted of his late friend and fellow jazzman Louis Prima is being produced as this year’s official Jazz Fest poster. It depicts a laughing Prima with sunglasses perched on his forehead while he holds a trumpet and a jazz band plays in the background. “It’s so full of life,” Quint Davis, producer of the music festival, said of the poster. “Tony’s good.” Bennett, 83, said painting the portrait of Prima, a New Orleans native, was one of his life’s biggest honors because of his love and respect for Prima, who Bennett said he had known since his early days in the entertainment business in the 1950s. “When you love someone, the love just flows out into the painting,” Bennett said in a telephone interview. “When

Every few minutes, passers-by stop to snap pictures. “It’s amazing,” said Jeff Taylor, 43, of Detroit, who was driving down the street. “I had to stop and see what happened.” He added: “It’s beautiful.” Freezing the house wasn’t easy. Even with temperatures in the teens, ice melted when the sun came out. First, the artists tried using rooftop sprinklers, but those froze. They ended up using a system of hoses to spray the house with water from hydrants. “This has been a real test of the will,” Holm said.

Brooks recalls Bancroft as wife, collaborator BY JOHN CARUCCI ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER


EW YORK – Mel Brooks has made audiences laugh for more than a half century, but it was his wife, the late Anne Bancroft, who made him smile. It’s been nearly five years since the actress passed away, but not a day goes by that Brooks doesn’t think about her. “I had 45 of the greatest years of my life,” he says. During a recent interview, Brooks, 83, recalled their first meeting in 1961. It was on the set of “The Perry Como Show” in New York, where Bancroft was performing a song called “Married, I Could Always Get.” After she finished, she was greeted by Brooks who proclaimed, “I’m Mel

Brooks and I’m going to marry you.” Bancroft responded: “Hey, I have your Brooks record.” She was referring to the classic comedy album Brooks did with Carl Reiner, “The TwoThousand Year Old Man.” The Brooklyn-born Brooks began his career as a writer for Sid Caesar’s “Your Show of Shows.” Alumni from that classic TV program included Reiner, Larry Gelbart, Neil Simon and Woody Allen. After the success of his comedy record, Brooks established a long career as a writer, director and actor. His first feature film, 1968’s “The Producers,” won an Academy

Award for best screenplay. It became a Broadway hit in 2001. “Anne was responsible,” Brooks says of turning his Oscar script into a Tony-winning musical. Brooks says he was approached by David Geffen to do the musical version of the film, but was reluctant at first. Tensions increased when Geffen suggested bringing in Jerry Herman to write the remainder of the songs. It was then that Bancroft intervened. “I won’t let you do this, if they don’t let you do the score,” she told him. “That’s the only reason to do it, the score.” Brooks went back to Geffen, and told him: “It’s me or no musical.” And the rest is history as “The Producers” won a recordbreaking 12 Tony Awards.

Giacometti sculpture sells for record $104M LONDON (AP) – A lifesize bronze sculpture of a man by Alberto Giacometti was sold last week at a London auction for 65 million pounds ($104.3 million) – a world record for the most expensive work of art ever sold at auction, Sotheby’s auction house said. It took just eight minutes of furious bidding for about ten bidders to reach the hammer price for “L’Homme Qui Marche I” (Walking Man I), which opened at 12 million pounds, Sotheby’s said. The sculpture by the 20th century Swiss artist, considered an iconic Giacometti work as well as one of the most recognizable images of modern art, was sold to an anonymous bidder by telephone, the auction house said. Sotheby’s had estimated the work would sell for between 12 to 18 million pounds. The sale price trumped the $104.17 million paid at a 2004 New York auction for Pablo Picasso’s 1905 “Boy With a Pipe (The

Young Apprentice).” That painting broke the record that Vincent van Gogh had held since 1990.

hen a homeowner faces default on their mortgage, there may be two options: foreclosure or short sale. Foreclosure can be devastating, both emotionally and financially. A short sale, or one in which the lender accepts a selling price less than the amount owed, is a better option for both the lender and the homeowner. Regrettably, nearly seven out of 10 homeowners proceed through foreclosure without ever listing their home for sale. This is due largely to perceived

myths about the process, and we need to put a few of these misconceptions to rest. First, homeowners assume the bank would REAL ESTATE rather foreclose Ken than accept a Wall short sale.

Next, homeowners believe there is a stigma attached to short-sale listings, and that buyers have no interest in such properties. Not true – to the contrary, many smart buyers are specifically seeking out such offerings for the value they present compared to traditional listings. Finally, homeowners often assume that there’s not enough time to close a short sale before foreclosure is final. Not true – foreclosure is a lengthy process

Novice homebuyers: Making the best possible purchase H

ave you made the firm decision to abandon apartment living and finally buy a house of your own? Yet do you fear overpaying for the property you purchase in this still- uncertain housing market? “Overall, the economy is doing better. But there are still some question marks about real estate,” says Leo Berard, a real estate broker and charter president of the National Association of Exclusive Buyer Agents (www. The current economic picture, which has a direct impact on home sales, is obviously mixed. Unemployment remains stubbornly high in many housing markets. Meanwhile, fears about mounting federal debt are influencing the economy as a whole. Yet, consumer confidence is rising. And, in an increasing number of neighborhoods, the inventory of unsold homes is falling, which helps property valuations solidify. Also, mortgage rates remain low by historic standards. And sizeable federal tax credits are still available to those who close on a home purchase before April 30. (Check To help ensure a sound first home purchase, Sid Davis, a real estate broker and author of “A Survival Guide for Buying a Home,” says you should buy with resale in mind, even if your intention is to stay in the home you buy forever. One key to buying wisely is to focus on the highest quality neighborhood you can afford, he says, because they “hold their value better in good times and bad. Plus they’ll be more likely to appreciate in the future after real estate fully rebounds.” As Davis notes, a strong neighborhood is one with well-rated schools and direct access to good public transportation or important commuter arteries. Cultural and recreational amenities are also important. Here are tips for novice homebuyers in the current market: • Look for sellers who are highly motivated. As a potential first-time buyer, you might feel awkward seeking out owners who are under pressure to sell or who simply want to do so to move on with their plans. But there’s nothing unethical about doing this, Berard says, because the owners may need to sell immediately. Berard suggests you ask your real estate agent to draw up a list of properties in your favored area that have been on the market for an extended period. Also, he recommends you go to the neighborhood where you’d like to buy and talk informally to residents about your interest in living there. • Thoroughly research any neighborhood you’re considering. Berard says many novice homebuyers let emotion dominate their decisions on where to live. But he strongly recommends that you factor in some statistical measures before

finalizing your neighborhood choice. This should increase your odds of choosing an area where prices are likely to rise in the future. Ask your real estate agent to determine the SMART MOVES average days on market Ellen (from list to sale) for propMartin erties in the area you’ve ■■■ chosen. Then look for homes in that price range that have languished unsold for a longer-than-average period. Before crafting an offer, Berard suggests you also examine another set of numbers: the average list-to-sale price differential. If you note that most properties have recently fetched 90 percent of their list price, you might consider a first bid at a 10 percent discount off what’s being asked, assuming your research shows this is warranted, he says. • Don’t pick apart the owners’ property. Suppose you’re seriously considering a handsome two- story house that would comfortably accommodate your family. However, you have seen a few minor shortcomings in the floor plan, such as an inconveniently located laundry room and the absence of a powder room for guests on the first floor. In an attempt to strengthen your bargaining position, should you write a letter highlighting these drawbacks and also noting the owners’ poor taste in choosing to paint their kitchen sunshine yellow? Absolutely not, Davis says. “Chances are the owners will take your feedback as a personal affront,” he says. This is not to say that you and your home inspector shouldn’t be forthright in itemizing repairs that need to be done to bring the property up to standard. But do so in a courteous manner that doesn’t insult the owners. • Realize there’s always risk with the reward of homeownership. By sticking to a conventional-looking property, Berard says you maximize the likelihood that your property will hold its value and increase in worth as the years go by. In the meantime, you’ll enjoy the liberties of homeownership, such as freedom from a landlord’s dictates and the right to paint your walls any color you want. Still, as Berard says, there’s always some element of risk when you make any large purchase or investment. All you can do is try to maximize your chances of making a good property choice at the best available price. “Every large financial decision you make has risks. But relative to other places you could put your money, real estate is starting to look much better as the economy improves,” he says. TO CONTACT Ellen James Martin, e-mail her at ellenjamesmartin

HUD asks for $41.6 billion for 2011 housing budget LOS ANGELES (AP) – The Department of Housing and Urban Development said Monday it will ask for less money from Uncle Sam this year because it expects income from two of its agencies to more than double. HUD operates the Federal Housing Administration and Ginnie Mae, in addition to a host of affordable housing programs. Both agencies recently raised fees for borrowers and should reap an extra $6.9 billion this year. The FHA insures nearly one-third of all home mortgages, while Ginnie Mae sells securities made up of loans backed by the FHA and the Department of Veterans Affairs. The fee increases were necessary to offset losses both agencies have seen during the foreclosure crisis. HUD asked the federal government to cover about $41.6 billion of its operating costs – a 5 per-

cent reduction from the prior year. Both the housing market and the broader economy began to emerge from a deep trench last

in spending for its main housing voucher program. It also wants to augment spending on homeless assistance grants by $200 million, with about half the increase going toward housing in rural areas. The nation has “clearly stepped back from the edge of crisis in our housing markets and in our economy,” said Housing Secretary Shaun Donovan. The agency is proposing several budget cuts, including $500 million from a fund used to update and renovate public housing and $175 million from its housing block grant program. HUD officials, however, said the impact of some cuts will be muted because last year’s Recovery Act included money year, but high unemploy- for its projects.
