TRIAD – Engines will be roaring some 500 miles away from the Triad during today’s Daytona 500, but what some may not realize is much of the work on those stock cars still takes place right here. While many teams have moved out of the Triad, like Richard Petty Motorsport’s transition from Level Cross to Statesville, there are still hundreds of workers in the Triad working on stock cars to compete in NASCAR’s top three racing divisions – the Sprint Cup Series, the Nationwide Series and the Camping World Trucks series. Since the Sprint Cup Series’ last race of the 2009 season at Homestead-Miami Speedway in November, Richard Childress Racing in Welcome and Triad Racing Technologies in High Point have been working on engines for stock cars in all three of the divisions. Richard Childress Racing is set to field stock cars for three Sprint Cup teams this year, and Triad Racing Technologies, which is the exclusive supplier for Toyota body parts, will support teams in the Sprint Cup Series, Nationwide Series, Camping World Trucks series and ARCA series.

Richard Childress Racing and Earnhardt-Childress Racing Engines employs about 425 workers between the two companies, Hart said. “If we send 125 people to the race track every weekend, that means we still have 300 people here, working, getting ready for the next week and all of the testing,” Hart said. Jim Thomas, Triad Racing Technologies business development director, recently said workers at High Point’s engine shop have been in a “mad dash to get everything prepared and ready” for Daytona’s Speedweeks, a time frame of when NASCAR will have several races to kick off the season. Triad Racing Technologies, formerly owned by Bill Davis Racing, has prepared in excess of 60 engines that have been sent to Daytona, Thomas said. “I know the entire facility (in High Point) has been working now for really since the last race at Homestead, getting engines prepared and ready for the upcoming season,” Thomas said. “I know that we are fairly well caught up through the California SONNY HEDGECOCK | HPE race at this point. It kind of never stops for us.” Greg Gunnell puts finishing touches on one of the engines at Richard Childress Racing. Triad Racing Technologies, which supplied engines for a team that won the ARCA series championship last year, has clients of Robby Gordon Racing, Germain Racing, Michael Waltrip Racing, Joe Gibbs Racing, Kyle Busch Motorsports, Team Red Bull and Randy Moss Motorsports, among others.

chairman of the city’s Personnel/ Finance Committee, said another issue that could be resolved by having business permits is knowing what businesses are doing in their buildings. “I think one of the biggest things is what type of businesses are in the buildings and what possible hazards they may have that would be important, especially for the fire department, to know about,” York said “Also to get our people in these businesses and make sure they are running legal businesses in areas that are zoned for that type of business.” Prior to tabling the proposed business privilege license program, city officials had been working on developing the program for a year. City Council members had

discussed a fee schedule, but many had previously informally agreed to charge one flat fee to cover the cost of implementing the program. Generating an estimated $50,000, the program would cover hiring one employee. At the retreat, City Council members discussed several options of staffing the program, including combining duties of an employee with the fire department. City Council members have also suggested creating a business registry to keep up with what business owners are doing in their buildings. York said all options are currently on the table. He said City Council would have to make a decision by May 1 if it wants to implement a program this year.

TRIAD – Automotive instructors at local colleges say they are trying to lay the groundwork for students who would like to one day be employed by a NASCAR team. Davidson County Community College, Randolph Community College and Guilford Technical Community College all train students to work in the automotive field by offering programs. Davidson County Community College and Randolph Community College recently opened up brand new automotive facilities for their students. Last year, Richard Petty helped Randolph Community College open up the Richard Petty Education Center by loaning the college several pieces for the building, including parts of race cars, trophies and pictures. The 40,000square-foot Richard Petty Education Center, which houses the Autobody Repair and Automotive Systems programs, has offices, 10 vehicle bays, an area for automotive lab and welding, painting booths and areas for automotive storage space. Don Ashley, faculty advisor for Randolph Community College’s Automotive Systems Technology lab, said his college has several graduates who have went on to the NASCAR Technical Institute. “They tried that, but I don’t think they’ve been successful in making it to NASCAR,” Ashley said. “A couple of them have connections with some of the local garages around here and they are trying to work their way into it that way.” Larry Dollars, an automotive instruc-

Otter mistaken for drowning snowmobiler GREENVILLE, Maine (AP) – State officials in Maine say that witnesses who reported seeing a drowning snowmobiler on a lake were probably looking at an otter enjoying a snack. On Thursday, three people reported seeing a snowmobiler wearing all

black and a black helmet struggling in Moosehead Lake. Officials used an airboat and flew overhead on both Thursday and Friday, but found no evidence that a person had gone through the ice. Cpl. Mike Joy of the Maine Warden Service tells the Bangor Daily

News that authorities did find pieces of crawfish and a small bloodstain on the ice, indicating that at least one otter had been feeding there. He says the animal would have appeared black to those onshore, given the distance and the sun’s glare off the ice.

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) – Ask any of the hundreds of thousands of earthquake victims living outdoors in Haiti’s shattered capital and you’re apt to get the same plea: “Give us a tent.� Few will get one. Aid agencies and Haitian officials have given up plans to shelter the homeless in tents, even if that means many will likely face hurricane season camped out under flapping sheets of plastic. Tents are too big, too costly and too inefficient, aid groups say.

Olympic protesters smash store windows



At least 20 killed by electrocution in Nigeria PORT HARCOURT, Nigeria – At least 20 bus passengers were killed in Nigeria on Saturday when a cable fell onto the bus and electrocuted people inside, police said. Police confirmed 20 deaths, but spokeswoman Rita Abbey said the toll could climb further. An Associated Press cameraman saw more than 10 bodies, some charred beyond recognition, at a local hospital in the provincial capital of Port Harcourt.

Bombs slow US advance in Afghan town MARJAH, Afghanistan – Bombs and booby traps slowed the advance of thousands of U.S. Marines and Afghan soldiers moving Saturday through the Taliban-controlled town of Marjah – NATO’s most ambitious effort yet to break the militants’ grip over their southern heartland. NATO said it hoped to secure the area in days, set up a local government and rush in development aid in a first test of the new U.S. strategy for turning the tide of the eight-year war.

No rest for Rio revelers at massive dawn party RIO DE JANEIRO – Carnival’s biggest bash took to the streets at dawn Saturday, proving that if there is one thing citizens of this laid-back seaside city take seriously, it’s partying. Organizers expected up to 1 million people at the Bola Preta street party, or “bloco” – one of Rio’s oldest. Dressed in black and white, the revelers lustily sang along to traditional Carnival songs like Rio’s anthem, “Cidade Maravilosa” – “The Marvelous City.”

Apparent bomb kills 8 in Indian bakery NEW DELHI (AP) – An apparent bomb tore through a crowded bakery popular with foreigners on Saturday in western India, killing at least eight people and wounding 42 near a famed meditation center. If confirmed, it would be the country’s first terror attack since

the Mumbai rampage in 2008. The blast in the city of Pune, 125 miles (200 kilometers) southeast of Mumbai, threatened to damage new efforts to reduce tensions between India and Pakistan, with Hindu nationalist leaders already placing the blame for the explo-

sion at India’s Muslim neighbor. Home Secretary G.K. Pillai said the 7:30 p.m. explosion at the German Bakery, near the Osho Ashram, a renowned meditation center, was likely caused by a bomb and it killed at least eight people.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) – More than 200 masked Olympic protesters splattered red paint and smashed windows of a popular downtown department store Saturday on the first day of competition at the Vancouver Games. Police say the group marched through the upscale shopping district, vandalizing cars and stores. Witnesses say protesters threw metal newspaper boxes into the display windows of Hudson’s Bay Company, where Olympic souvenirs are sold. Police in riot gear quickly moved in and quashed the protest. Police Chief Jim Chu said seven protesters were arrested on a variety of charges, and they were being processed.

Tymoshenko calls Ukraine vote rigged KIEV, Ukraine – Ukraine’s Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko – apparently defeated by a narrow margin in last week’s presidential vote – ended six days of silence Saturday by saying the election had been rigged and she would challenge the result in court. Her statement seemed to confirm analyst expectations that she is digging in for a political standoff with her rival, Viktor Yanukovych, that could delay the transfer of power.

Chief: Alabama professor held in 3 killings shot kin BRAINTREE, Mass. (AP) – A University of Alabama professor accused of fatally shooting three colleagues at a faculty meeting this week shot her younger brother dead at their home in the Boston suburbs more than 20 years ago, but records of it are missing, police said Saturday. Amy Bishop shot her brother in the chest in 1986, Braintree police Chief Paul Frazier said at a news conference. She fired at least three shots, hitting her brother once and hitting her bedroom wall, before police took her into custody at gunpoint, he said. Before Bishop could be booked, the police chief back then told officers to release her to her mother, Frazier said. The shooting of the brother, Seth Bishop, was logged as an accident, but de-

Bishop worked for the police department then remember the shooting and he planned to meet with the district attorney over the possibility of launching a criminal investigation into the report’s disappearance.

As Bishop was being taken to jail in handcuffs she said: “It didn’t happen. There’s no way.�

vada state prisons, appeared to grudgingly comply with the conditions set Garrido by parole agents. The parole followed his imprisonment for a 1977 conviction in the rape and kidnapping of a Nevada casino worker. Numerous details on Garrido’s background and the Dugard’s captivity have emerged since he was arrested in August.

HIGH POINT – While romantics were in luck with Saturday’s snowfall, road crews dealt with another winter storm that closed some businesses, churches and colleges. High Point residents woke up to about 2 inches of snow inside an icy sandwich Saturday after road crews spent most of Friday night plowing and salting primary roadways. The storm threatened Valentine’s Day activities. “We had drivers ready to go at 8 a.m.,” said Tommie Hughes of Ellington’s Florist on S. Main Street. “We will deliver today. We were lucky we did not get too much this time. We expect to deliver on Sunday too.” By midday, much of the new snow had melted, but with frigid temperatures expected overnight, many roads and streets were expected to be icy this morning. Snow accumulations of up to 4 inches were reported

TRIAD – A U.S. Transportation Department decision issued last week could cost Piedmont Triad International Airport up to seven nonstop flights to New York City. However, a twist in the approval of the flight-slot swap between US Airways Group Inc. and Delta Air Lines may lead Delta or another airline to begin service on PTI’s thirdmost popular route. The airlines announced last August that they wanted permission to swap takeoff and landing

If the US Airways slots are eliminated, Triad residents still would have nonstop service to the New York area. slots at airports in New York and at Reagan National Airport in Washington. Delta would exchange 42 of its slots at Reagan for 125 of US Airways’ slots at LaGuardia, which includ-

ed the seven at PTI. The elimination of the seven LaGuardia flights would leave PTI with 53 nonstop flights. If the US Airways slots are eliminated, Triad residents still would have nonstop service to the New York area through four daily flights on Continental Airlines to Newark, N.J. The department said its approval is dependent “on the requirement that the airlines sell some of their slot interests to carriers with no or limited service at the two airports.” The airlines said in a joint statement that they

disagree with the requirement, which means that Delta would have to sell 20 of its LaGuardia slots and US Airways would have to sell 14 of its Reagan slots. The department said that the goal of the requirement is “lessening the harm to consumers that might otherwise result from the applicants’ increased dominance” at LaGuardia and Reagan. The department said it will conduct a 30day public-comment period before issuing a final decision. The airlines said that their agreement would “maintain and add new nonstop service between

two of America’s top business markets and smalland medium-sized communities across the United States.” “We expect that if this order is implemented as proposed, the transaction will not go forward, and significant consumer benefits will never be realized. Both airlines will review the department’s proposed rulemaking to determine our next steps.” Henry Issacson, the chairman of the Piedmont Triad Airport Authority, said he feels confident that one or more airlines “would fill whatever gap or void this decision creates.”

Bowles says he won’t let up in last months MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

CHAPEL HILL – In one breath, UNC system president Erskine Bowles announced Friday that he plans to step down at the end of the year. In the next breath, Bowles shifted back to what became his hallmark in four years of long workdays: getting more done. “Believe you me, I know our work is far from finished, and I promise you I’m going to continue to work, to drive, to push just as hard in the months ahead as I have over the past four years,� Bowles told the UNC Board of Governors. Indeed, the board went back to work quickly after Bowles’ announcement, at the request of board chairwoman Hannah Gage. “In the next couple of weeks, we’ll make an announcement about a search committee and move forward,� Gage said. “But for now we’ll respect the wishes of the man we respect, and we hunker down and we work.� Gage said Bowles’ effect on the 16-campus system had been transformative. “He came along at the perfect time, I think, with the skill set and talents that the UNC system needed at this point in history,� she said. Bowles, 64, is a multimillionaire from a storied North Carolina family, the son of Hargrove “Skipper� Bowles, a Greensboro businessman who served in the legislature and Cabinet of Gov. Terry Sanford before running unsuccessfully as the Democratic nominee for governor in 1972. The elder Bowles, who died in 1986, led the fundraising effort to build the Dean E.

Smith Center at UNCChapel Hill and has a road named for him on campus. Bowles The younger Bowles is a graduate of UNC-CH and Columbia University. He began his career at Morgan Stanley in New York before co-founding several financial firms in Charlotte. President Bill Clinton talked him into becoming director of the Small Business Administration in 1993 and eventually named Bowles the White House chief of staff from 1996 through 1998. Bowles ran unsuccessfully as a Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate in 2002 and 2004. Bowles came to the UNC presidency with a reputation as a workhorse, and he has not disappointed. He is known for his early mornings, late nights and almost-daily takeout orders for Chick-fil-A salads that he eats at his desk. Many staffers have marveled at his work capacity -- and the similar expectations he has for their output. He took office Jan. 1, 2006, with a lot of big talk about accountability, transparency and efficiency. He had already barnstormed the state, touring each of the system’s university campuses, visiting with chancellors, students and others. Early in his tenure, he was already finding problems and demanding solutions. One example: A month before he became president, he met with faculty at UNC-CH and pronounced the university system’s long-range plan “squishy� and unspecific.

Four years later, the system has redefined its planning process and installed checks and balances to slow a long proliferation of academic programs that, at times, overlapped unnecessarily between campuses. Judith Wegner, a UNCCH law professor and chairwoman of the UNC system’s Faculty Assembly, credits Bowles with hiring strong chancellors on numerous campuses. In particular, Bowles found well-regarded leaders for several historically black institutions, some of which were struggling with low graduation rates and unflattering financial audits. “He really believes in the mission of those schools, and I think he really wants

strength and good judgment there,� Wegner said. Bowles’ tenure has included tribulations. He had to replace chancellors at Fayetteville State and N.C. A&T following the discovery of financial abuses on both campuses. In 2009, Bowles presided over a massive series of budget cuts that resulted in the elimination of about 900 jobs across the university system. He insisted to campuses that the cuts be made largely in administration. Then, in the middle of

dealing with the cuts, a scandal boiled over at the state’s largest university, N.C. State. Amid a storm of questions about NCSU’s

hiring of former state first lady Mary Easley, Chancellor James Oblinger resigned, along with the university’s provost.

TURLOCK, Calif. (AP) – Episcopal leaders in central California are launching a new round of legal action to gain control of property used by congregations that split from the national church in a dispute over the Bible and homosexuality. The Diocese of San Joaquin said the congregations that left to align with more conservative Anglican parishes in 2007 had no right to take control of church property.

Health care costs can bankrupt families A new federal study has proven what we’ve all been feeling in our purses lately: health care spending is about to bankrupt all of us. The study showed that health care spending rose to $2.5 trillion in 2009, which is $8,047 for each one of us. It’s projected to nearly double by 2019. Our family can’t weather such a storm! My daughter is between the proverbial rock and a hard place. She can’t get affordable insurance because she has epilepsy; but she can’t afford to buy her medications either! What is she supposed to do? Her problem, which is similar to far too many Americans, can’t be ignored or delayed any longer. Not even another year! Since Congress is incredibly close to passing real health care reform, I am publicly standing with President Obama in calling on Congress to finish the job it started. They all know changes must be made and the longer we wait, the greater will be the burden of rising costs which will mean more lost jobs, more families in bankruptcy and more crushing debt for our country. I love our region, our state and our nation and call on others who feel the way I do to be vocal about it. Encourage your representative to not give up!

Will Cupid spur the recovery?


t appears everybody is trying to determine whether America in general and North Carolina’s Piedmont Triad in particular is, perhaps slowly, emerging from the Great Recession. Spending for Valentine’s Day appears to be one of the indicators of how well the economy is doing this year. The folks at point out that money earned from all those flower, perfume and candy sales can have powerful repercussions for the economy and insist that Cupid is busy this year. Results from the National Retail Federation’s (NRF) 2010 Valentine’s Day Consumer Intentions and Actions Survey expects over $14 billion in much-needed consumer spending this Valentine’s Day. That works out to approximately $103 on average per person for traditional Valentine’s Day purchases. And IBISWorld Reports Sales Forecasts claims total Valentine’s Day spending to be up 3.3 percent from 2009, reaching $17.6 billion. “Because Valentine’s Day falls on a Sunday, the research firm anticipates consumers to move from traditional gift-giving toward dining out,” IBIS noted. Meanwhile, a Zogby Interactive survey finds only 7 percent of Americans will be spending more than $100 this Valentine’s Day season. Survey results show two-thirds of Americans will spend less than $50 and that 25 percent say they plan to spend nothing. The poll also determined that men (31 percent) are more likely than women (18 percent) to shell out more than $50. Conclusion: Using Valentine’s Day spending as a guide as to how the economy is going is probably as close to the mark as any other measuring stick – the results are muddled. We’re still wondering ...

‘Winter Wonderland,’ ‘Let It Snow,’ are not our theme songs


rom the time I was a youngster through my college years and then through my first three years (full-time) in the newspaper business, “Let It Snow” and “Winter Wonderland” were among my favorite songs. An Internet check told me “Let It Snow” was created by lyricist Sammy Cahn and the composer Jule Styne in 1945, and Wikipedia reports it was written in July in Hollywood, Calif., during one of the hottest days on record, and that it became one of the best-selling songs of all time. “Due to its seasonal lyrics, it is commonly regarded as a Christmas song in the Northern Hemisphere. Yet despite its cheery, holiday feel, it is a love song that never mentions Christmas and both the composer and lyricist were Jewish.” Another Internet check revealed that “Winter Wonderland” first was published in 1934 with Felix Bernard the composer and Richard B. Smith the lyricist. “Probably the most popular versions of this classic Christmas song were recorded to high acclaim by the Andrews Sisters and Perry Como,” the report said. I didn’t think those songs were so wonderful, however, when, at the age of 25, I was editor of The Bedford Gazette, which “is proud to be the 22nd oldest daily newspaper in the United States.” Bedford sits in the western one-third of Pennsylvania’s Appalachians about 100 miles east of Pittsburgh and, when it snowed there, it was hell to pay to get anywhere, and the bulk of the newspaper’s then 7,000 circulation was delivered via the U.S. mail. That’s when I understood that snow was nothing to sing about and that “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds,” which often falsely is called the U.S. Postal Service motto, was just so much hogwash. During heavy snows, most of the Gazette’s customers didn’t get their newspaper delivered for two or three days. After that, my dislike for anything more than a dusting of snow became more intense when I was sports editor for The Idaho Statesman because, while it generally snowed enough in Boise that one had to shovel it only once a year, the Statesman circulated through 10 counties (an area 150 miles deep and 100 miles wide), a few of them home to ski areas where the snow often was 6 to 10 feet deep. A few years later, I returned to western Pennsylvania for 12 years as editor of the newspaper in the town in which I was reared. It was common to have snow on the ground much of the time between Thanksgiving and Easter. The situation wasn’t any better in Illinois, where for four of my dozen years there, I was both editor and circulation manager. When they

would plow the roads there, snow immediately would drift behind the snowplow truck, often leaving the road impassable, especially for trucks hauling newspapers – often the only other drivers on the road. With three snowstorms hitOPINION ting the Triad over the last two months, we had nothing to sing Tom about here either. Quite a few Blount Enterprise delivery routes are ■■■ within the city (where at least the main thoroughfares are scraped) but for those carriers – independent contractors – whose routes run north of the Wal-mart on North Main or begin or end in Davidson and Randolph counties, where many roads are impassable, it truly was a struggle if not impossible to get the paper delivered to some subscribers during those Saturdays and Sundays when snow was heaviest. For those of you who have been wondering, yes, some carriers who didn’t do the job were replaced. Yes, some carriers got stuck in the snow but, thankfully, there were no major accidents. And Publisher Mike Starn, who spent two decades in newspaper circulation departments, pitched in to help deliver papers to many customers whom carriers earlier hadn’t been able to reach. Snow days were especially rough on Enterprise circulation department customer service representatives. Many subscribers, who didn’t get a paper because the carrier couldn’t get there, accused customer service representatives of lying. Subscribers would call and tell the service reps they didn’t get a paper and the service reps would tell the customer that the carrier had picked up the papers and they were under the impression that carriers were delivering (or at least trying to deliver) the papers. Some customers readily admitted that conditions were so bad that they couldn’t get out of their driveways. Ironically, many of those same customers questioned why the paper hadn’t been delivered. We know full well that you want your newspaper as early in the morning as you possibly can get it. We’re glad you want it that badly. That gives us the incentive to work even harder to get the paper to you in good condition, on time. Rest assured that the circulation department constantly is working on improving service every day in addition to bad weather days. Prior to the three snowstorms, Enterprise delivery service errors were the lowest they had been in several years. That’s our job and we’re going to do it right – without singing, of course.

Are they Leadership in innovation, creativity is key really all T the same? N

ow that the thumping of the Democrat Party has begun, I keep hearing people say that we should vote against both parties because there’s no difference between Democrats and Republicans. I’ve also heard some people take this further by saying it doesn’t matter if you’re liberal or conservative. Before jumping on this bandwagon, some perspective is in order. The Republicans had their thumping in the 2006 and 2008 elections. Too many Republican leaders ignored conservative principles and allowed government spending to grow excessively. In other words, they were acting like liberal Democrats. Corruption in the mainstream media was also a factor. Liberal journalists routinely amplified everything bad about Republicans while glossing over everything bad about liberal Democrats. There were other factors, but that’s all beside the point. The point is that liberal Democrats don’t get it, and I’m not so sure liberal Republicans get it either. What they don’t get is the fact OPINION that big government will do more Mike harm than good for Hughes America. ■■■ The theoretical differences between Democrats and Republicans may not matter, but the ideological differences between liberals and conservatives most definitely matter. Liberalism – in both parties – has damaged our country. Conservatism has not. President Obama promised to transform America, and he’s been trying his best to do so. But most Americans don’t want our country transformed, especially when that transformation is clearly a sharp turn to the left. We do want solutions to our problems, and we realize that sometimes the government must be part of the solution, but many Americans are now starting to realize that our government is often the predominant source of our problems. This realization is what led to the Tea Party movement and the formation of other groups such as GOOOH (Get Out Of Our House). Nanny-state liberals have been working hard to discredit and ridicule these groups because these groups stand in the way of the liberal agenda: irresponsible government spending, excessive taxation and the debilitating entitlement lifestyle. The intent of GOOOH is to remove party politics from the House of Representatives. While this may be an overreaching goal, the existence of GOOOH and the Tea parties is of great benefit to our country. That’s because these groups represent an awakening of the American people. It’s my belief that a lot of the problems in our government today are the result of the American public not paying attention. When the people pay attention, Washington will get the message that trillion-dollar deficits, government takeovers and shady deals made by party bosses are unacceptable. This message has to be delivered at the ballot box. But that will only happen if enough people stand up to get the word out at Tea parties, town hall meetings and other events. Perhaps the ultimate way to stand up for America is to run for office. I applaud Cathy Brewer Hinson for standing up to challenge career politician Rep. Howard Coble in the 6th District (http://www. In a desperate attempt to resuscitate his failing progressive agenda, Obama recently said with great profundity, “the answer is not to do nothing …” With these few words, I totally agree.

hose attending last week’s Emerging Issues Forum got a glimpse into the future. For some it was exciting and filled with possibilities, while others were no doubt threatened by what they learned. The theme for this year’s event was Creativity Inc., and while there were many outstanding presentations, one in particular caught our attention. Daniel Pink, author of “A Whole New Mind: Why Right-Brainers will Rule the Future,” mesmerized the audience talking about left brain, right brain thinking. We all use both sides of our brain, but one side tends to dominate the way we operate our lives. Left-brainers are more analytical, sequential and task oriented. Those dominated by their right brain are more creative, empathetic, observant and open to possibilities. Pink says there are three reasons why the scales are tilting toward right-brain abilities: Asia, automation and abundance. There are 1 billion people in India alone. In two months,

India will be the world’s largest English speaking country. Fifteen percent are easily capable of competing in the global econMY SPIN omy with skills like accountTom ing, operations Campbell and engineer■■■ ing. That’s 150 million people, more than the entire population of Japan and more than the current U.S. work force of 139 million. Routine physical labor like textile machine and furniture lathe operators moved from North Carolina and the United States years ago to where labor was cheaper. Now routine intellectual work is following the same path. Pink says a good engineer in America earns about $65,000 per year. In India they earn $25,000. Capital will always move to the cheapest labor. Then there’s automation. In the last century, machines replaced our backs and muscle. This century software is

replacing our left-brain linear, rule-based thinking. No longer do we write letters by hand or with a typewriter. Last year, 23 million Americans did their taxes using TurboTax instead of employing someone or filling out forms manually. We will continue to relegate routine work to software whenever possible. We are a country of great abundance. Some 99 percent of us have color televisions, even most of the 13 percent in poverty. And 85 percent have mobile phones. In fact, we discard 460,000 mobile phones every day in the U.S. Our standard of living is the highest in history and greater than the rest of the world. To stay competitive we must maintain our leadership in innovation and creativity. Pink suggests three ideas to achieve this. We must begin measuring what matters in our schools and workplaces. Most schools measure leftbrain skills. We must stop turning children only into vending machines that spout dates, figures and processes,

instead teaching them how to see and understand, to think outside the box and use arts to communicate and learn differently. We need scientists who think like artists as well as artists who can think like scientists. Pink’s last suggestion was that we need to include arts in our schools. Eliminating them is a “fool’s errand,” he states. We all have the ability to become artists; art helps us learn to see things differently. Former Gov. Jim Hunt started this Emerging Issues Forum 25 years ago to identify the challenges and opportunities facing North Carolina. We have our work cut out for us, but Hunt is quick to point out how far we have come and is convincing in telling us we can make our state a leader in this new future.

Us and them We seem to have an unbridgeable philosophical divide


hen you deconstruct and closely analyze the details in their rhetoric, one quickly realizes the major philosophical and principle divide between liberals and conservatives. Put simply, conservatives like us believe in equality of opportunity and unfettered freedom. Liberals on the other hand, want a world where the outcomes are equal – almost guaranteed – even if it requires less societal income/wealth and lesser freedoms. To illustrate the point, let’s examine some of the recent congressional proposals that were advocated in Congress: • Health care: The Left was willing to sacrifice individual freedom to choose doctors, opting instead to impose a staterun monopoly on medical care at the expense of OPINION a market driven health system. They unabashedly Armstrong didn’t care that they were Williams redistributing income from the more productive to the less productive; from the young to the old; from the healthy to the less healthy. In contrast, conservatives looked toward market solutions to resolve many of the existing health care issues, one that operated within a framework of the invisible hand of rational behaviors and the proper incentives. If cost is a factor in health care as liberals would argue, then why not ensure the solution has a price-based fixture? • Cap and trade: Under the Democratic plan, income derived from a cap and trade scheme would be redistributed from productive carbon reducing enterprises to non-carbon emitting enterprises. In effect, jobs would be lost,


shifting from the USA to less responsible, emerging countries. Wealth would shift from America to non-compliant nations. And for what reason? Because of spotty, inconclusive scientific evidence that reduced carbon emissions would prevent global warming. Conservatives questioned that science. Not because they were Neanderthals. But when you ask the average American to pay $5 for a gallon of gas to save an iceberg in a remote part of the north he may never see when that same person is struggling to pay that month’s mortgage or he himself will be out in the cold, you better be sure of the consequences of “global warming.” Frankly, the Left failed in that argument. • McCain-Feingold: Democrats howled when the Supreme Court recently overturned corporate prohibitions in the landmark McCain-Feingold law. Here again, they’re willing to sacrifice the constitutionally-protected free speech of corporations and their shareholders. This has the long-term effect of

preventing this segment of society from spending their corporate dollars on political issues that are or are not in their best interest. The beauty of our First Amendment is captured best in its simplicity – when you abridge someone’s right to speak out for causes he/she believe in, no amount of demagoguing will cover that injustice. In the real world, most Americans are neither completely liberal nor conservative in their overall views. Views and opinions change, based on one’s own station in life and through differing circumstances. That’s why we have laws, based on fundamental principles of what’s just. Because if left to the devices and whims of populists, so-called principles would change in an instant, and freedoms would suffer. That’s why conservatives look back to the Founders – they approached the building of this nation with the freshest of views – chief among them was the unfailing pursuit toward more, not less, freedom. Conservatives will never be able to cogently persuade a true liberal who is more than willing to sacrifice his freedom and income so that there is absolute perceived equality. Likewise, liberals will never persuade conservatives to sacrifice individual freedom and hardearned wealth to be redistributed by bureaucrats and politicians in Washington, D.C. For this reason alone, the Left and Right will never meet. It’s probably good that they don’t, for conflict is at the heart of democracy. I’m just glad I and my conservative colleagues are on the side of liberty! ARMSTRONG WILLIAMS, a former High Point resident, is a Washington-based political commentator.

Our actions, reactions need moderation BY CAROL COX


eek moderation in all things.” What Aristotle meant was that even virtues when carried to extreme can become evils. Human nature being what it is, the pendulum swings too far one way then, in a corrective attempt, too far the other. Take the popular enjoinder “plant a tree.” But what if you want to grow a garden? Or maintain a prairie or pasture? Or enjoy a vista from the Blue Ridge Parkway? Sometimes what is needed is to “cut down some trees.” The reason given for trying terrorists in criminal, not military, courts is the excellent “we are a nation of laws.” Yet bestowing such to someone who admits to – brags of – savage acts amounts to “throwing pearls to the swine, to be trampled underfoot.”



Our legal system is not immune to destruction. Can one overdo giving? A test for yes: If it’s not coming out of your own wallet; your main motivation is to look good, feel morally superior; and the best interest of the recipient is ignored. When is the better, albeit more difficult, act to stand in the shadows and let someone learn the hard way? Any parent can vouch for such times. Life is full of inevitable, unavoidable pain. But the wise know suffering produces endurance; endurance produces character; character produces hope; and hope doesn’t disappoint us. Pause to consider what is stripped from the soul when an attitude of entitlement for

everything from food, shelter, housing, health care, even college tuition, is ingrained. And how easy to become an ingrate when nothing is expected in return. Each should contribute, however small the portion. Graciously allow someone to experience that it is more blessed to give than receive. The attitude against profiling terrorists came out of the virtue of tolerance. But so that some Islamic sensibilities aren’t offended, law-abiding citizens are subjected at airports to the absurd. Back in the fall, our 10year-old granddaughter had already removed her shoes, passed through the screen and re-donned them. Her mother was involved with the mandate of taking everything out of the one-year-old’s stroller and collapsing it when the baby, who they insisted must

walk through the screener on her own, began wandering beneath the counter toward another line. The older sister ran back out to grab her and guide her through. A security employee protested that Elizabeth should now have to repeat barefooted screening. Thank goodness common sense of another employee prevailed, who understood she had not had time to plant a bomb – and even if there was reason to suspect it, she and the shoes had already been cleared. Such is the hassle of inconvenience, wasted time, and the humiliation of being treated like a criminal perpetrated on innocents. The attempt not to do something wrong becomes a worse wrong itself. Let’s aim for balance. CAROL COX lives in High Point.

Lawsuit claims AAA Carolinas has racial bias CHARLOTTE (AP) – Former and current employees have sued AAA Carolinas claiming the travel organization discriminated against them based on race and sex. The Charlotte (N.C.) Observer reported Saturday that the travel company refused to comment on the case that was filed in Charlotte last month. The employees who filed the lawsuit work or worked at AAA’s car care and towing services in Charlotte. Trevor Fuller is an attorney for the employees. Fuller said most had filed complaints with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

NEED FOR SPEED: New AT&T network to be 10-times faster. 2C

Insurance outrage Anthem rates soar in three states TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Consumers in at least three states who buy their own health insurance are getting hit with premium increases of 15 percent or more. Anthem Blue Cross, a subsidiary of WellPoint Inc., has been under fire for a week from regulators and politicians for notifying some of its 800,000 individual policyholders in California that it plans to raise rates by up to 39 percent March 1.

The Anthem Blue Cross plan in Maine is asking for increases of about 24 percent this year. Last year, they raised rates 32 percent. And in Oregon, multiple insurers were granted rate hikes of 15 percent or more this year after increases of around 25 percent last year. The increases affect groups of customers who purchase individual health insurance, rather than getting it through

their employer. Premiums are far more volatile for individual policies than for those bought by employers and other large groups, which have bargaining clout and a sizable pool of people among which to spread risk. As more people have lost jobs, many who are relatively healthy have decided to go without health insurance or get a bare-bones, high-deductible policy. Both result in a decline in premiums for insurers. Steep rate hikes in this sliver of the insurance market have popped up sporadically for years. Experts see them becom-

ing increasingly common. “You’re going to see rate increases of 20, 25, 30 percent” for individual health policies in the near term, Sandy Praeger, chairwoman of the health insurance and managed care committee for the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, predicted Friday. A number of consumer groups in Maine are planning big rallies at two public hearings on Anthem’s proposed rates later this month. Politicians and even some health insurers are urging a revival of the stalled effort in Congress

to overhaul the health care system. WellPoint, which is based in Indianapolis, has said it needs to raise rates so much because the weak economy has resulted in a smaller number of people, many with serious health problems, remaining in the individual market in the individual market in California, while costs of caring for them have been rising due to higher provider prices and more use of diagnostic tests. About 13 million Americans purchased health insurance through the individual market in 2008, the most recent data available.



LEXINGTON – Layne McCarn of The Bob Timberlake Gallery in Lexington says the name doesn’t necessarily say it all. “It’s not just an art gallery,” says McCarn, the gallery’s public relations

director. “It’s not just a furniture store. It’s like a museum for Bob who is still living, but it shows you everything that has evolved from his art career ... We have probably 98 percent of everything that’s made in the world of Bob Timberlake at the gallery.”

Timberlake Gallery is a Triad treasure

‘It’s an experience like no other. When you come into the gallery, you feel right at home.’

Business: Pam Haynes


Visitor Dianne Cherry examines a wall of prints at the Bob Timberlake Gallery. Bob Timberlake, an internationally known artist who calls Lexington his home, began his professional career in 1970, with no formal education or training. Timberlake’s work is based on the simple life in North Carolina, which has become a favorite of millions of art admirers around the world. In 1997, Timberlake opened the The Bob Timberlake Gallery, a 16,000-

square-foot facility in his hometown of Lexington. The gallery features Bob Timberlake art, apparel, furniture and home furnishing accessories, as well as a broad selection of gifts and collectible items. “We have a lot of visitors come through our doors every day,” McCarn says. “A lot of those people are local ... I think the majority of our traffic comes from

The Bob Timberlake Gallery is located at 1714 E. Center St. in Lexington. The gallery is open 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Saturday. The Riverwood Coffee Shop, located inside the gallery, is open 7 a.m.-3 p.m. Monday through Friday and 7:30 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday. Admission is free.

travelers who are being directed by picking up a brochure somewhere at the Welcome Center along the way or seeing our billboard coming in. Our local tourism (agency) is very good with keeping our names out there and trying to promote people to come into our area.” In addition to the gallery building, an additional 7,000 square feet of space at The Bob Timberlake Gallery is occupied by a coffee shop, an “originals” exhibit area and offices. “It’s an experience like no other,” McCarn says. “When you come into the gallery, you feel right at home. Most of the time as you’re looking at the artwork that Bob does, you are going to see something that evokes a memory of something from your past.


“Whenever visitors come in, they’re just in amazement of how comfortable you feel. I think sometimes the size of this building would intimidate people, and they would think that we need to dress up and come to Bob Timberlake, but that’s not true. We get people dressed in all kinds of different ways. Whenever they leave, they most of the time come back because there is something here for everyone.” According to McCarn, The Bob Timberlake Gallery has between 45,000 and 55,000 visitors each year. McCarn says The Bob Timberlake Gallery is busy throughout the year, but business tends to slow down in January and February. | 888-3657

WASHINGTON (AP) – Google plans to build experimental, ultra-fast Internet networks in a handful of communities around the country. The search company said Wednesday that its fiber-optic broadband networks will deliver speeds of 1 gigabit per second to as many as 500,000 Americans. Google Inc. says those systems will be more than 100 times faster than the networks that most Americans have access to today. In a blog post, the company said the networks will let consumers download a high-definition, full-length feature film in less than five minutes and allow rural health clinics to send 3-D medical images over the Web. Google says it will seek input from communities that might be interested in getting one of the testbed networks.




New threat Experts worry about effects of commercial loan failures MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

WASHINGTON – Over the next few years, a wave of commercial real-estate loan failures could threaten America’s financial system, and in the worst case scenario, hundreds of additional community and midsize banks could face insolvency, a congressional watchdog group said Thursday. According to a report by the Congressional Oversight Panel, a watchdog group for a $700 billion bank-bailout package, about $1.4 trillion in commercial real-estate loans will reach the end of their terms between 2010 and 2014, of which nearly half are now under water (that is, the borrower owes more than the

underlying property is currently worth). The report added that losses from commercial loans could range as high as $200 billion to $300 billion. As a result, it said, banks that suffer from the losses or are discouraged by the economic future could become even more reluctant to lend, which could reduce access to credit for more businesses and families, accelerating a negative economic cycle. “The Congressional Oversight Panel is deeply concerned that commercial loan losses could jeopardize the stability of many banks, particularly the nation’s midsize and smaller banks, and that as the damage spreads beyond individual banks, that it will contribute to prolonged

weakness throughout the economy,” said the report, which was approved unanimously by the five-member COP. The oversight panel also urged bank regulators to take a more thorough look at which banks they decide to unwind. “The (COP) is clear that government cannot and should not keep every bank afloat. But neither should it turn a blind eye to the dangers of unnecessary bank failures and their impact on communities,” the report said. The COP members said that not all banks should be treated the same way when it comes to recognizing losses. The panel contends that banks with weak portfolios across the board should be forced to recognize all losses. Meanwhile, banks that have financed only the strongest projects and operated prudently, and banks with


commercial real-estate portfolios that have weakened but are largely still based on performing loans, should be dealt with more carefully and should not be forced to recognize all potential losses immediately. Having this group be forced to recognize potential losses immediately could create a “self-fulfilling prophecy,” the report said, as selling commercial real estate at fire-sale prices could depress values of even relatively strong properties. “Real-estate prices would be driven below actual longterm values, pushing the commercial real-estate sector into what has been termed a negative bubble – not only forcing more banks in a particular region into perhaps unnecessary insolvency, but having ripple effects across the broader markets for commercial real estate,” according to the report.

AT&T picks suppliers for new network NEW YORK (AP) – AT&T Inc. has selected Alcatel-Lucent and LM Ericsson AB to supply the equipment for a new wireless network that will provide data speeds that are at least ten times faster than today’s wireless broadband. AT&T plans to start service on the network in some cities next year, using a technology called LTE, or Long Term Evolution. Dallas-based AT&T is about a year behind Verizon Wireless in building out an LTE network and has been boosting speeds on its existing network in the meantime. Verizon is focusing on getting LTE out early because its current network has limited upgrade potential. Alcatel-Lucent of France and LM Ericsson of Sweden, two of the biggest suppliers of wireless network equipment, will supply cell-tower equipment for the LTE network. Ericsson, in particular, has been on the forefront of LTE development. A year ago, Verizon Wireless picked the same two vendors for its LTE deployment. Other companies making LTE equipment include Motorola Inc. of Schaumburg, Ill., and Nokia Siemens Networks, a German-Finnish joint venture. Huawei Technologies Co. of China has been a surprisingly strong competitor as well. New gadgets will be needed to take advantage of LTE speeds. The first ones on the market are likely to be PC modems, with phones following later.

Merck to appoint safety monitors TRENTON, N.J. (AP) – Merck & Co. must appoint two new independent committees and a chief medical officer to monitor the safety of its medicines and drugs in development, under a proposed settlement to end longrunning shareholder suits brought over the company’s former painkiller Vioxx. The one-time blockbuster drug was pulled from the market in 2004 because it doubled the risk of heart

attacks and strokes. Thousands of lawsuits brought by patients, their survivors and others alleged Merck officials knew about those risks and hid them. Merck reached a $4.85 billion settlement to answer most of the lawsuits alleging patients were harmed or killed, and continues to make payments as individual claims are settled. The new settlement, announced late Tuesday, would end numerous lawsuits con-

solidated in New Jersey that have been brought by Merck stockholders against the company and dozens of current and former Merck executives and board members. In midmorning trading, Merck shares were down 36 cents at $36.11. The settlement calls for Merck, the world’s secondbiggest drugmaker, to fill a previously announced position of chief medical officer. That person would be

the company’s public voice on product safety issues, be independent of Merck Research Laboratories, work with government regulators and oversee the truthfulness of product advertising. The chief medical officer would report directly to Merck’s chief executive, serve on the company’s executive committee and be able to meet with other board members without any Merck executives being present.

Breaking through fear in the workplace BY MILDRED L. CULP WORKWISE FEATURES

Fear overtakes some people at work. A task or assignment, such as giving a presentation or cold calling, terrifies them. That task or assignment might well come up repeatedly, often bringing almost debilitating physical symptoms that put work at risk. If you’re like this, how can you overcome phobias on the job? Lieutenant Colonel Rob “Waldo” Waldman earned his undergraduate degree at the Air Force Academy, served on active duty for 11 years and is in his ninth year serving with the United States Air Force Reserve. He’s a speaker and the author of “Never Fly Solo” (McGraw-Hill, $24.95), a book of career advice about building and maintaining trust. In an interview, he explains in detail how trust helped him overcome fear. Diving off a ten-foot-high diving board into a swimming pool stopped Waldman in his tracks when he was a child. More than ten seconds in a closet prompted panic attacks. His father was an aircraft mechanic, but Waldman wanted to fly. That would mean sitting in the cockpit of a fighter jet for five or six hours. His fear of tight spaces (claustrophobia) and heights (acrophobia) followed him. “This is about stepping outside the comfort zone,” Waldman writes, “. . . doing what it takes to break the performance


Lieutenant Colonel Rob Waldman (right), author of “Never Fly Solo,” attends a book-signing with friends Pam Badgley (left) and Dana Wilson. His story about overcoming fear in fighter jets is compelling. barrier that, ultimately, is constructed out of nothing but your own invented fears.” He writes about a process he developed that helps people become “totally engrossed in the moment.”

‘STARING DOWN’ Working through fear of heights was manageable, Waldman indicates. However, he had to find a method for “staring down” claustrophobia, whose grip was severe, to continue the work he was passionate about.

Sharing his secret might have meant the end of a career that led to “remote tours of duty in Korea, deployments to the sweltering Saudi Arabian desert (and) horrific panic attacks at 20,000 feet in the night skies of Iraq.” Deciding to confront his phobias wasn’t enough. He had to create a formula to break through. “I had a job to do,” he says. “I’d ponder what good were the wings on my chest and training for combat, if, when the time came, I turned away and

ran from my responsibilities?” He explains the steps he put together to refocus thoughts about fear: • Don’t block or reject your fear; acknowledge and accept it. • Scale down that fear through “tough talk,” including the fact that none of your accomplishments to date matters at all when you have a job to do. • Ask others with similar problems how they worked through them.

• Figure out what brings you “lift” (in his case, God). • Develop a list of people counting on you to be successful. Waldman focused his thoughts on others involved in his mission, as people who depended upon him. “They were a part of it,” he says. “The people I was protecting also needed me so that no one would bomb their houses and burn their villages. My mission was to serve my wingmen (team members) and people I was helping to protect. “If you’re struggling through a job interview, adversity or a health problem,” he advises, “look at what you love.” In the cockpit that meant looking at the silver angel, a religious symbol he’d brought and, at other times, pulling out pictures of his niece and nephew. He says that family members of all kinds, a commission check or the thought of retirement could make that difference for you. Once you take these steps, you’re ready to replace a specific fear, such as that of being embarrassed or seeming cowardly, by “grabbing onto something that’s greater than the fear.” In his case, it was mission and responsibilities, all related to people and trust. In other words, Waldman stresses, “dig deep.” When you do, enter the flow and keep moving forward. DR. MILDRED L. CULP, Workwise Features, is an award-winning journalist.

impromptu,” Stewart said. “I don’t think it is really a scenario where you can plan that like where it used to be with me and Junior.” Having a fast car is a good way to attract friends. Kasey Kahne, who won a qualifying race and finished second in the Shootout, is finding that his Ford has been so fast that he is attracting more attention than ever before. “I’ve had more people pushing me than in the previous six years combined,” Kahne said. “People want to push a fast car, so I’m in a better spot. So hopefully it helps us play the chess game during the race.” Carl Edwards said he will work

with some of his fellow Ford drivers, led by Kahne. But what line he takes and who he races with at the end with be a spur of the moment decision. “It’s not about choosing and having a plan, it’s about recognizing at the time what is the best,” Edwards said. “I watch the guys who are good at it and it seems they have a sense on which line has the best momentum and that’s where they go. I don’t have a strategy. I’ve got 499 miles to figure it out and then I’ve got to implement it. It’s hard to decide when you are in the car, but that is the fun part of it.” |888-3519

Blue Devils drill Terps DURHAM (AP) – Mike Krzyzewski’s 1,000th game at Duke ended like so many others before it: overwhelmingly in his team’s favor. With results like this, it’s no surprise that he doesn’t plan on slowing down. Jon Scheyer scored 22 points and No. 8 Duke marked Coach K’s milestone with a 77-56 rout of Maryland on Saturday in a matchup of the Atlantic Coast Conference’s top two teams. Brian Zoubek had 16 points and 17 rebounds for the ACC-leading Blue Devils (21-4, 9-2), who dominated from start to finish, shooting 41.5 percent and holding Maryland 25 points below its season average. “Obviously, it’s an honor to play in a game of such significance for (Krzyzewski),” Scheyer said. “But after that, we’re in first place – that’s the main thing.” Greivis Vasquez scored 15 of his 17 points in the second half and Cliff Tucker added 12 to lead the Terps (16-7, 6-3). Maryland went 2 of 13 from 3-point range. From Art Heyman to J.J. Redick, roughly 100 former players, coaches and staff members returned to Cameron Indoor Stadium to celebrate a double milestone for Krzyzewski. On his 63rd birthday, he became the eighth Division I coach to reach four figures at one school. He’s 781-219 in 30 seasons at Duke with three national titles and 10 Final Fours. After the final horn, he was presented with a framed Duke No. 1,000 jersey and the Cameron Crazies sang “Happy Birthday” to him.

UNC tops Pack, stops 4-game skid CHAPEL HILL (AP) – Larry Drew II had 15 points and North Carolina snapped its fourgame losing streak by beating N.C. State 74-61 on Saturday. Deon Thompson added 12 points for the Tar Heels (14-11, 3-7 ACC), who gained some measure of relief with their first victory since beating the Wolfpack nearly three weeks ago. It was also their first home win since beating Virginia Tech more than a month ago. But more importantly, the victory kept the defending national champions from doing something unthinkable in the preseason: falling into last place in the ACC standings with just a handful of games left to play. Instead, that dishonor fell to State (14-12, 29), which lost its fourth straight game overall and its eighth in a row to the Tar Heels. Tracy Smith scored 20 points to lead the Wolfpack and Javi Gonzalez added 13. UNC had lost eight of its last 10 games.


Tall order High Point University’s Amy Dodd (24) faces a steep task as she looks to maneuver against Gardner-Webb’s 6-foot-6 center Sandra Vaitkute on Saturday at the Millis Center. Dodd and the Panthers fell 74-66 to the Big South-leading Runnin’ Bulldogs. See story on 3D.




icking a winner in any race is about as easy as selecting numbers for the lottery. Trying to predict the winner of a restrictorplate race is even more difficult, sort of like trying to guess where lightning will strike. Or maybe because lightning can strike any time in the form of a car going out of control in the middle of a large drafting pack and causing a big wreck. Or you don’t know who is going to sandbag until the last few laps. Because of the draft, a guy who hasn’t been much of a factor all week can take home the big prize with a charge in the last five laps. And then there’s the unexpected circumstance, such as Matt Kenseth taking the lead just before rain cut short last year’s Daytona 500.

With the preliminaries out of the way, it’s now time for the big show again. A number of Chevrolets were expected to be strong and haven’t disappointed in qualifying – with Mark Martin and Dale Earnhardt Jr. on the front row, Jimmie Johnson winning a qualifying race, and Tony Stewart and Juan Pablo Montoya showing plenty of muscle. A number of Fords showed strength in the qualifying races as Kasey Kahne scored a victory for Richard Petty Motorsports, and Matt Kenseth, Greg Biffle and AJ Allmendinger also ran near the front. But the cars that kept being mentioned after the qualifiers as ones to watch today were the three guys in Dodges fielded by Roger Penske. Two of them, Brad Keselowski and Sam Hornish Jr., are considered dark horses.

The third, the one driven by Kurt Busch, is a legitimate contender. Busch has never won a restrictor-plate race but his record isn’t too shabby. In 36 events at Daytona and Talladega, he has finished in the top-five 15 times and pushed his then teammate Ryan Newman to victory here two years ago. But, silent much of the week has been Busch’s brother, Kyle – who has had the best car in the 500 the past two years and then in July crashed trying to hold off Stewart coming to the finish line. Learning from past mistakes, Kyle Busch will position himself correctly and win by beating his brother while the rest of the field crashes behind them in an unforgettable finish.

Johnson will complete drive for five A

combination of cool temperatures, clouds and wind Saturday made the weather at Daytona International Speedway feel more like High Point in a normal February than Florida. Instead of an annual respite from the cold, most of Speedweeks has featured heavy jackets and toboggans. The forecast is for a slightly warmer afternoon today. No matter how cool those in the grandstands are, the heat on the track will definitely heat up because those in the Cup circus start playing for keeps on the biggest stage of the year. Whoever prevails today in the Daytona 500 will be the most recognized winner of the most prestigious race of the year. But, a win today will be no indication of what may happen the rest of the year because the 500 is one of four restrictor-plate races. Today’s race is likely to be decided by who makes the best moves in the aerodynamic draft. “Right now, you don’t have to have a perfect handling car to win,” said Kurt Busch, one of today’s favorites. “You need to find the right draft to be in and that’s the most exciting type of race.” The draft is the great equalizer by keeping cars in contention that normally aren’t among the usual victory suspects in most races. The real season,

as they say, starts in California. That’s where the answers to a number of questions will start to unravel. Can anyone keep Jimmie Johnson from winning a fifth straight SPORTS championship? Can the Hendrick MoGreer torsports team that fields Smith Johnson’s car keep up its ■■■ domination that included finishing 1-2-3 in last year’s standings? Can reorganization at Hendrick Motorsports actually get Dale Earnhardt Jr. out of the slump that resulted in a 25th-place finish in the points last year? Can the team owned by Tony Stewart with power from Hendrick build upon its first-year success that included Stewart winning four races, and Stewart and Ryan Newman making the Chase for the Championship? Can the Roush Fenway team rebound from a disappointing 2009 in which it got a total of three victories – the first two by Matt Kenseth in the first two races of the season and the other one by Jamie McMurray at Talladega in the fall? Can the reshaped entity know as Richard Petty Motorsports turn its

switch to Ford into more than two victories by Kasey Kahne? Can the mercurial Kyle Busch get back into the Chase after missing it last year despite winning four races? Can Busch’s teammate Denny Hamlin win more than four races and eliminate the mistakes that he made in the Chase for the Championship to become a title contender? Can the three remaining teams at Richard Childress Racing come back from a dismal 2009 in which they failed to win and failed to make the Chase? Can the temperamental Juan Pablo Montoya prove that he can win and keep the consistency that put him in the Chase last year? Will free-agent Martin Truex Jr. finish happiness to Michael Waltrip Racing and will Jamie McMurray get back in the groove with his move from Roush Fenway to Earnhardt Ganassi? Will the duo of David Reutimann and Marcos Ambrose make enough of an improvement to make the Chase? Will former Thomasville resident Brian Vickers make the Chase again for Red Bull Racing? The one thing that ultimately matters is winning the championship. The first step getting there is being one of 12 drivers to qualify for the 10-race Chase. The number of drivers who have a

shot at making the Chase is about two dozen. The 12 who I think will make the playoff are Hendrick drivers Johnson, Mark Martin and Earnhardt, just Stewart from his two-car team, Hamlin and Kyle Busch from Joe Gibbs Racing, Kasey Kahne from RPM, Kenseth and Edwards from Roush-Fenway, Clint Bowyer from Richard Childress Racing, Kurt Busch again from Penske Racing, Vickers again from Team Red Bull and surprise Reutimann from Michael Waltrip Racing. And the champion? Hamlin and Kyle Busch don’t have the maturity. Vickers and Reutimann drive for teams that are too new. Kenseth is consistent but doesn’t win enough. Bowyer is still learning. Edwards and Earnhardt must get over last season. That brings it down to Stewart, Martin, Johnson and Kurt Busch. Martin remains a sentimental favorite. Stewart knows what he needs to do to win the title but must beat his benefactor Hendrick. I’d like to go out on a limb. But, it’s hard to argue against whatever system Johnson and crew chief Chad Knaus use to tackle the Chase. So make it five in a row for Johnson. | 888-3519

Labonte makes great save at Daytona BY GREER SMITH ENTERPRISE SPORTS WRITER



Austin Dillon (3) slams into the wall as Johnny Sauter (13) spins and Nelson Piquet (1) drives past in the early stages of Saturday night’s NASCAR NextEra Energy Resources 250 Camping World truck series event at Daytona International Speedway. Dillon is a student at High Point University.

Peters edges Bodine on last lap for truck victory DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) – Timothy Peters won the seasonopening truck series race at Daytona International Speedway on Saturday night. Peters passed two-time defending race winner Todd Bodine on the final lap, then edged Bodine at the line

for his second career victory. Dennis Setzer finished third, followed by Jason White and Matt Crafton. Bodine lost control of his truck after crossing the finish line and spun into the muddy infield at Daytona. The race was marred with crashes with only 14 cars finishing on the

lead lap. On Lap 1, Austin Dillon got loose and collected Kyle Busch, Johnny Sauter, Jennifer Jo Cobb and Landon Cassill. “It’s very dejecting,” said Dillon, who returned to action and finished 26th. “We wanted to go out there and run well ... not a good start to the season.”

Stewart wins; wreck parks Danica BY GREER SMITH ENTERPRISE SPORTS WRITER

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – As the laps drew to a close, the biggest surprise of Speedweeks would have come if Tony Stewart had lost the Nationwide race Saturday afternoon. There was no surprise at the end of the season-opening 300-miler long after Danica Patrick’s maiden NASCAR voyage ended when she couldn’t avoid a wreck. Stewart, left in a commanding position with the strongest car when most of his strongest competition was involved in a nine-car wreck that caused Dale Earnhardt Jr. to flip, wasn’t seriously challenged over the remaining 28 laps. Stewart’s fifth victory in the last six runnings of the 120-lap event was his 15th in a stock car on the 2.5-mile track. “That was one of the most dominant cars I’ve ever had at Daytona,” Stewart said. The 15 stock-car victories here ties him with Cale Yarborough for the third-most behind Dale Earnhardt’s 34 and Bobby Allison’s 16.

Stewart has never won the Daytona 500, however. “Since I will never get another chance at the Indy 500, winning the 500 now is my ultimate goal,” Stewart said. Stewart drove a Chevrolet from Kevin Harvick Inc., which fielded his Nationwide winners here in 2005 and 2006. His strongest competition came from Harvick in another KHI car, before the decisive wreck that began when Carl Edwards turned Brad Keselowski into Earnhardt, who was running third. Earnhardt’s car clipped secondrunning Harvick and turned over in front of other cars. After an 11-minute red flag and caution period for cleanup, Stewart led with second-year driver Justin Allgaier while Edwards and Harvick maneuvered their damaged cars toward the front. In the dash from turn four to the checkered flag, Edwards and Harvick got around Allgaier to finish second and third, respectively. “I told Tony if everything went right, I didn’t think anyone could beat our cars, the way they ran in practice,” Harvick said. “In the

race, it turned out the same way. It was the best car I’ve had here.” Allgaier was fourth. Brian Vickers, who failed in efforts to get into position to challenge for the lead, was fifth. Earnhardt, who slid to a stop on his wheels, climbed out of his smashed Chevy uninjured. “I got turned in the right rear,” Earnhardt said. “My car rolled to the right, it dug in and rolled over. I felt good about my chances. I had fun drafting with Tony and Harvick. That was expensive. I’ll have to go back and balance some books now.” Patrick was eliminated when she couldn’t miss a multi-car wreck coming off turn four on lap 68. Patrick hit two spinning cars and then hit the outside wall. She missed a wreck in the first 10 laps. “The first wreck, I went straight and missed it,” Patrick said. “This one, there was so much smoke and I went straight and hit the brakes but I couldn’t miss it. That’s the tough thing about this kind of racing; the cars are running so close out there.” | 888-3519

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Bobby Labonte tried to remain humble Saturday. After making an impressive save during the only incident of the final practice session for the Daytona 500, Labonte took little credit for spinning his Chevrolet so it just missed the inside wall after a tap from Scott Speed. “I don’t know if I saved it or it saved itself, but I’ll take credit if credit is due,” Labonte said. “It didn’t set us back too far. We just had to fix a little bit of damage and got back out there.” With help of the aerodynamic draft, Richard Childress Racing driver Jeff Burton set the fastest speed in the session with a lap of 195.194 mph. Kevin Harvick, Marcos Ambrose, David Reutimann and Matt Kenseth completed the top five. Before the spin, Labonte produced a speed that was 11th best. “The car is not quite where we want it, but it is better than we were Thursday (in the qualifying race),” said Labonte, who finished 17th in the qualifier. “I can run the bottom (of the turns) but it won’t run on the outside. I need to run on the outside because if I just stay on the inside during the race, I’m going to get freight-trained by the line on the outside.”

MAJOR WITHDRAWALS Paul Menard got a spot in Saturday’s race after five other drivers withdrew following encouragement from Menard which reportedly involved money. Menard intends to run the full Nationwide schedule. Most of the teams that dropped out were startand-park operations. Menard finished sixth.

SPARK PLUGS Jeff Gordon will start at the back of the field today in a replacement car after deciding their primary cars were damaged too badly to repair after Thursday’s qualifying races. ... Richard Petty will drive the Mustang pace car before today’s race. Petty’s team switched to Fords for this season. ... Junior Johnson, the winner of the 500 in 1960, is today’s grand marshal. | 888-3519

Barbour sparks Panther men won their second straight game. High Point took a 34-24 halftime lead as Charleston Southern shot only 29 percent from the field (9-for-31) in the first half. The Panthers struggled from the line in the first half (5-for-9, 55.6 percent), but went 16-for-18 (88.9 percent) in the second to

HIGH POINT (AP) – Nick Barbour scored 28 points to lead High Point to a 73-68 victory over Charleston Southern on Saturday night. Barbour hit three 3pointers and went 11-for12 from the free throw line and Euguene Harris added 18 points for the Panthers (13-12, 8-6 Big South Conference), who

hold off Charleston Southern. Corey Law added 10 points and nine rebounds for High Point. Kelvin Martin had 18 points and 10 rebounds, Jamarco Warren had 16 points and Jeremy Sexton added 11 points for Charleston Southern (11-14, 6-9), which lost its third consecutive game.


HIGH POINT – Although only eight points separated the High Point University women and Gardner-Webb on Saturday, the afternoon ended with no doubt as to who had become the Big South Conference’s top dog. Behind a superior all-around effort from junior point guard Dominique Hudson, the Runnin’ Bulldogs dashed to a dominant 23-point lead at the Millis Center and warded off a late Panther run to prevail 74-66. Gardner-Webb (21-3, 10-1), now with nine straight wins, cemented its status atop the conference standings by sweeping the season series from High Point (13-11, 6-5) and sending the Panthers to their fourth straight loss. Ironically, as has been consistent throughout their skid, inconsistency plagued the Panthers. High Point made nine of its first 15 field goals to start strong while also converting nine of its final 15 field goals to finish with a flurry. In between, though, a 20-20 tie became a 63-40 Gardner-Webb lead as the Panthers scuffled to just five makes in 32 shots through the middle stretch. “We’ve gotta have that effort for 40 minutes,� said HPU coach Tooey Loy. “We had some people diving on the floor. We got some offensive rebounds tonight. We’ve got to work on our ball movement a little bit more. We’re too easy to guard at times.� When junior forward Amy Dodd buried

a huge 3-pointer with seven seconds to go in the first half, a nine-point deficit was cut to six. But not to be outdone, Hudson rushed across midcourt and drained a desperation 40-foot answer at the buzzer to remove any Panther momentum. After the intermission, the Runnin’ Bulldogs quickly raced on a 9-3 run that mushroomed into a 23-9 onslaught, combining tenacious defense and steady offense, triggered on both ends of the floor by Hudson. The Rocky Mount-native continuously disrupted the Panthers’ sets, recording seven steals to go along with her game-high 19 points, five rebounds and five assists. “It was a stretch in the game where I believe we had defensive breakdowns,� explained High Point sophomore forward Shamia Brown. “I felt we could have stuck with them, but our defense wasn’t on as well as it should have been.� Brown and Jurica Hargraves each tallied 11 for the Panthers, while senior center Ashlee’ Samuels achieved her fourth double-double of the year with 10 points and 14 boards. High Point’s 26-11 rally to end the game did not decrease the magnitude of the win for the Bulldogs, who are hoping for more success here when the Panthers play host to the conference tournament. “I’m just really pleased with this victory,� coach Rick Reeves said, “and I hope it gives us a lot of confidence that we can come in here and win the tournament.� HPU plays host to Radford on Monday.

Coach K: ‘Nyet’ to Nets DURHAM (AP) – The New Jersey Nets are already the laughingstock of the NBA. Now they’re getting ribbed by Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski, too.

Krzyzewski said New Jersey had not contacted him, then cracked a couple

of one-liners at the expense of Mikhail Prokhorov, the Russian billionaire and the Nets’ prospective buyer. “The guy’s Russian, right?� Krzyzewski said. “You think he’d hire a Polish guy?� After chuckling, Krzyzewski said: “No one’s contacted me, and if they do, I think ‘nyet’ would be easy for me to say.� The Nets are 4-48 at the All-Star break.

Both players left for the NBA after their junior seasons and were first-round draft picks.

Switzerland’s Simon Ammann soars to the gold medal during the ski jumping normal hill competition at the Vancouver Olympics in Whistler, British Columbia on Saturday. Ammann captured the first gold medal awarded at the 2010 Winter Games.

Swiss star soars to first gold of Vancouver Games THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

VANCOUVER, British Columbia – The first gold medalist of the 2010 Winter Games is the guy who won two golds in Salt Lake City eight years ago. If the name Simon Ammann doesn’t ring a bell, maybe this will: He’s the Swiss ski jumper who looked a lot like Harry Potter. Now 28 – and no longer a double for the boy wizard – Ammann is again the best in the world. He won the individual normal hill title Saturday for the honor of being the first of 86 champions to be crowned at the Vancouver Games. The first Olympic record was set by

Dutch speedskater Sven Kramer in winning the 5,000 meters. Kramer’s time of 6 minutes, 14.60 seconds shaved six-hundredths of a second off Jochem Uytdehaage’s record set at altitude in Salt Lake City in 2002. Another first was expected to come Saturday night – the first gold won at home by Canada. The host nation was shut out in Montreal at the 1976 Summer Games and in Calgary at the 1988 Winter Games. Now, moguls skiers Jenn Heil and Krsti Richards, and speedskater Charles Hamelin all have a good chance of setting off a spirited rendition of “O Canada.”

Organizers alter Olympic luge course after tragedy VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) – Competition at the 21st Winter Olympics opened Saturday with all eyes and heavy hearts on the Whistler Sliding Center. Sliders resumed training on a repaired and slightly reconfigured track the day after a 21-year-old luger from the republic of Georgia died following a crash on the last turn of a training run. They also all started from a new spot farther down the track in hopes of slowing speeds and improving control. The men have been moved to the women’s start ramp, while women and doubles are shifted to the junior start ramp. Officials say this was done to help with the “emotional component” of athletes, and the IOC says it is “completely satisfied” with how things have been handled. The early results lived up to expectations. All 36 sliders were below 90 mph after routinely going more than 95 mph earlier in the week. Germany’s Felix Loch was fastest in training at 89.2 mph – well off his track record of 95.68 set during a World Cup event last year. The men’s downhill was supposed to be the first medal of these games, but it was postponed because of warm, wet weather in Whistler. That put the ski jumpers at the head of the list. Ammann’s victory was decisive – he posted the longest jumps in both rounds. His score of 276.5 points far beat his 269 from Salt Lake. At Turin in ’06, Ammann

went out in the first of two rounds, finishing 38th. Polish veteran Adam Malysz took silver and Austria’s Gregor Schlierenzauer bounced back from a disappointing first jump to earn bronze in his Olympic debut. With Vice President Joe Biden watching, none of the three U.S. ski jumpers made it to the final round. Peter Frenette and Nick Alexander tied for 41st, while Anders Johnson was 49th. In the speedskating, a trio of Americans competed. Chad Hedrick finished 11th, with Shani Davis 12th and Trevor Marsicano 14th.

FIGURE SKATING Johnny Weir didn’t like living at the Olympic village four years ago in Turin. So why he is he staying at the Vancouver version? Safety. Weir said he received “very serious threats” from anti-fur activists after adding white fox fur to the left shoulder of his costume for the free skate at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships last month. He could have had bodyguards at a hotel, but it was easier to stay in the village, where security is always at a premium. Note to the anti-fur folks: Weir won’t be wearing any animal skins in Vancouver. “It was not because I was pressured to change it,” he said. “I’m just switching back to another costume.” The men’s short program is Tuesday, and the free skate is Thursday.




All of Saturday’s high school games were postponed due to Friday night’s snowfall. Thanks to a series of snow days the past few weeks, the regular season has been extended through at least Tuesday – depending on potential delays from storms Monday – and basketball conference tournaments are in jeopardy: Schools would not be permitted to play two regular-season games Monday and Tuesday and then compete in up to three more tourney games later in the week. The NCHSAA playoffs open next Monday. On tap for Monday so far are: Southwest Guilford at East Forsyth; East Davidson at Salisbury; Asheboro at Ledford; and Bishop McGuinness at Surry Central. Games slated for Tuesday so far are: Glenn at Southwest Guilford; Parkland at High Point Central; East Davidson at Central Davidson; North Surry at Bishop McGuinness. Other contests remain up in the air, including the PAC 6 2A title showdown between the Trinity and T. Wingate Andrews boys. Look for additional updates this week in the Enterprise.

HPU’s Cherry breaks school record in 5,000 SPECIAL TO THE ENTERPRISE

SEATTLE – High Point University senior Jesse Cherry set the school record in the 5,000 meters and earned a provisional qualifier at the Husky Classic in Seattle, Wash. late Friday night. Cherry finished third in his heat and 15th overall, setting a new HPU record with 14:02.86. He broke his own record of 14:14.18. Atkins, a graduate student at HPU, ran unattached because he is out of eligibility for the indoor season. He will compete for the Panthers during the outdoor season. He finished fourth in his heat in 14:17.66, good for 36th overall.

Fisher in the hurdles and TJ Brancaccio in the pole vault.� Neal Darmody won the 3,000 in 8:32.70 with Stuart Edmonds finishing seventh in 8:53.05. Morgan and Monds finished first and second in the mile in 4:14.95 and 4:15.41, respectively. Morgan also ran the 800 in 1:55.49 for second place. Fisher continued his strong performances in the 60-meter hurdles with a 8.42 preliminary time. In the finals, he finished seventh in 8.36. Brancaccio tied his season best, clearing 15’3 in the pole vault and finishing sixth. For the HPU women, Manika Gamble won the 60-meter hurdles and tied her personal record in the event.

She also finished seventh in the 400 in 58.81. Canfield finished third in the mile in 5:08.9, with Piacente finishing in 5:13.66 for sixth place. Christina Fenske finished sixth in the high jump, clearing 5’4.25 and Rachel Webb set a school record in the pole vault, clearing 10 feet.

Johnson, Goydos tied at Pebble Beach THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif.â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Dustin Johnson is powering his away around the Monterey Peninsula. Paul Goydos is poking along. Two golfers who couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be any more different were tied for the lead Saturday in the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Johnson reached the 595-yard opening hole at Spyglass Hill with a hybrid and made a 20-foot eagle from the fringe to send him on his way to an 8-under 64, despite a three-putt bogey on his final hole. Goydos reached the 513-yard second hole with a 3-wood and made an 8-foot eagle putt, then birdied two of the final three holes for a 64 at Pebble Beach. They were at 18-under 196 and were four shots clear of anyone else. Johnson is leading the field this week in driving distance at 310.7 yards, while Goydos is averaging 262.7 yards off the tee. J.B. Holmes and Bryce Molder each had a 68 at Spyglass Hill, while Matt Jones had a 66 on the

Shore Course at Monterey Peninsula. They were tied for third at 14-under 200. David Duval had a 67 and was tied for seventh. Phil Mickelson had a 69 at Pebble Beach and was eight shots out of the lead. The biggest star Saturday was the weather, some of the most spectacular conditions this tournament has seen in years. Along the coast of Pebble Beach, huge swells crashed against the rocks and the sea wall.

This manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s SHOT show picks for 2010 BY DICK JONES SPECIAL TO THE ENTERPRISE

SHOT stands for Shooting and Hunting Outdoor Trade Show and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the biggest hunting show in the world. Every year, Cherie and I pick three items of merit and one ultimate winner. This week, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll cover my three picks as well as Cherieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s.

ATI AKITA ADJUSTABLE GUNSTOCK At my age, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to worry about growth, at least not vertical growth. For my grandsons, growth is an expensive problem. I buy rain slickers, waders, gloves, boots, and all kinds of outdoor gear that gets passed down. Parker at three is now wearing stuff I bought for Phoenix who is now 13. Fortunately, the gear lasts a lot longer than the kid stays a certain size. Guns constitute a bigger problem in that I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like the idea of giving a gun to a kid and taking it away to give to another. At SHOT Show, I saw a wonderful solution to this and I wish Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d thought of it myself. Advanced Technology International makes parts and accessories for AR15 platform rifles. Someone there came up with the idea to make a shotgun stock that adjusts like the adjustable stocks found on the new M4, military rifle, a trimmed down version of the M16. The M4 stock has a lever on the bottom that allows the rifleman to shorten it and lengthen it by pushing the lever and moving the rear part of the stock. The ATI Akita Adjustable Hunting Stock works just like the M4 stock but looks like a regular synthetic stock. It comes in a variety of colors including black, camo, and faux wood. The rear section encases the

telescoping part and the lever is hidden under the bottom of the stock so it looks like a normal stock. The mechanism allows the stock to adjust from 12½â&#x20AC;? to 14½â&#x20AC;? and the adjustment is instant. It would really work well for an adult deer hunter since the position you shoot from makes scope eye relief a potential problem when you shoot down or up. For a young shooter, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a Godsend. I have one coming to use on my 870 trainer. Now I can instantly adjust to fit tall and short shooters. Right now, the stock is made to fit Winchester, Remington and Mossberg shotguns. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the most innovative stock product in years. Now, they need to get to work and make a version to fit the standard deer rifles.

BROWNING AVALANCHE SLEEPING BAG BY ALPS One of the most undesirably memorable nights Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever spent involved a sleeping bag, an air mattress, and a tent with a slick floor. I might have gotten two hours of sleep. The other six hours were spent getting the slick sleeping bag on top of the slick air mattress and sliding both uphill so my feet werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t outside the front of the tent. It was without a doubt the slickest night Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever spent. Self inflating air mattresses are a great invention. The old blow up mattresses worked great, unless they developed a leak, but I generally pass out a couple of times before I get one blown up. Even if the self inflating mattress leaks, you have something between you and the ground. They still can get out from under you but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a great improvement.

SHOT Show this year we found out that Redfield is back and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s made right here in the USA. Leupold has bought the line. I believe they have a winner. The new Revolution line of Redfieldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t offer as much light transmission as a Leupold that costs twice the price, but they are miles ahead of the old ones. There have been leaps and bounds made in lens coating and what was state of the art just a few years back is easily accomplished today. These scopes also donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have adjustable parallax but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m amazed at how many hunters donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how to adjust it anyway. I assume they will be set parallax free at 100 yards, the standard for centerfire non adjustable scopes. This means they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be a good choice for use on rimfire rifles but maybe they have a rimfire version in the works. For a bare bones, entry level scope, they do have some great features. These scopes are 100% waterproof, they have a lifetime warranty, they have Âź minute click adjustments that you can turn with your fingers, (I wish my Leupolds had that feature) and they have a feature called Rapid Target Acquisition. RTA is a feature that makes the scope more forgiving for finding a full eyepiece. The amazing thing about this story is the bottom line. The 2x7 Redfield Revolution sells for just $129 MSRP for a quality scope made right here in the good old USA. The 3x9 with a 40MM objective lens is just $149. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m thinking one of the 2x7s would do a nice job of replacing my old K4. DICK AND CHERIE Jones are outdoor writers living in High Point. To check out their Web site go to

Last year, I picked Dennis Bruneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s company, Alps Mountaineering, for their Steady Plus hunting stool that keeps the shooter high enough to stand easily and includes a backrest for comfort. This year, Alps has come up with another comfort item in their Browning Avalanche Sleeping Bag with a built in, self inflating, air mattress. The rectangular bag has a pocket on the bottom for the air pad eliminating the problem of keeping the bag on the mat. When you pack up, the bag rolls up and compresses and the pad goes into a separate bag. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a backpacking bag at almost 10 pounds for the bag and pad, but thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always a trade off for comfort. If you need to carry the bag in and need lighter weight, Alps has the Fusion, a lighter, mummy style bag with a pocketed mat that comes in at about six pounds. I used my Steady Plus hunting stool for both fishing and hunting and it was a back saver. I think the sleeping bag will be at least as good. A great idea that resolves a real problem deserves mention. Dennis, you did it again.

REDFIELD REVOLUTION RIFLESCOPE In the old days there were three quality scopes, Redfield, Leupold, and Weaver. All were solid, made in the USA, and reliable. I had Weavers, they were the cheapest, and not quite as bright, (I suppose that paralleled my personality). Leupolds were the most expensive and Redfieldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s were a reliable standard. Leupold rose to the top and the others faded away in a field of imports. I switched to Leupold though I still have an old K4 on my pre â&#x20AC;&#x2122;64 .308 Model 70. Weaver is now back as an import but, at

A womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s point of view from the SHOT Show BY CHERIE JONES SPECIAL TO THE ENTERPRISE

Every year when I attend SHOT Show I go in with â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;middle of the roadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; expectations, and every year as Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m leaving Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m wondering why those new ideas never crossed my mind. Why canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t I ever come up with those ideas? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve narrowed the long list of great ideas down to my favorite three and the first one is made by FLIR. FLIR is a billion-dollar company with about half their output going to defense contracts. The other part of their business is comprised of industrial applications for thermal imaging. Thermal imaging means seeing heat and the applications for seeing heat involve things Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have never thought of. Seeing heat allows companies to troubleshoot machines because heat in most machinery means problems. It allows technicians to see bad electrical connections because they generate heat. It allows contractors to spot insulation problems with homes since heat on the outside of a house means a heating and air conditioning loss. The Scout series thermal imaging device can work in complete darkness or broad daylight. It has an internal camera that sees heat, not light so its technology is far more advanced than night vision glasses. It makes video images that it displays on its built-in LCD eyepiece. The unit is about the size of a pair of regular binoculars. The scout is small enough to carry and powerful enough to give the outdoorsman the capability to see animals or even people that would otherwise be hidden from view because of trees or brush, dust or fog, or even smoke for about 200 yards. Imagine shooting a deer late in the evening and looking through the FLIR Scout to see the deerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s body glowing in a dark background. Currently, the Scout sells for $3,000. This is the beginning of something that will become more affordable as time goes by and FLIR projects that in five years this piece of technology will be affordable for the average outdoor enthusiast.


The second on my list is from SHE Outdoor Apparel. Originally SHE was She Safari and most of the clothes were related to big game hunting and were cut in classic safari style. The line has evolved to include other kinds of clothes and the upland clothes are the most attractive Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen in a fast growing market. Their blaze orange and waxed cotton upland hunting vest is without a doubt the nicest Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever seen. With a classic upland configuration, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s designed to flatter a womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shape but built to perform. The vest is fully lined and it has pockets galore. Finally, style and function go hand in hand out to the field.

CUFFSOX The third thing on my top three picks is a boot sock made by Cuffsox. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a boot sock that comes up high on the calf with a built in cuff. The upper part of the sock is double thick and connected at boot top height. The outer part of the sock folds down over your boot top while the inner part stays up on the leg. The cuff keeps the elements out and also covers your boot laces to keep them from tangling or even untying. No more seeds and twigs finding their way into the sock or boot. The design also

keeps your socks from slipping down into your boots since the folded over part locks the sock in place. Extra cushion and arch support as well as reinforcement in the toe and heel make these socks comfortable to walk or work in all day. Developed by a builder who was tired of fighting with uncooperative socks, the line includes socks for both eight and ten inch boots in regular and merino wool blends. They come womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sizes and in a variety of colors including Pink. No more seeds in my socks on the bird fields, great.

AND THE WINNER PICK ... THE BEAVERTAIL BOAT BLIND I believe that one of the attractions to duck hunting is the misery. Why else would a man get up at 2 a.m., take a boat ride in the dark in sub freezing temperatures, and wade around in icy water putting out decoys? Under normal conditions, that same hunter would sit for another couple of hours waiting for shooting time and, by the time it was legal to shoot, he would be a human icicle in waders. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve not done one of those misery hunts in the last few years but I was out there every opening day for several years. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not denying my tendencies towards mas-

ochism, but when I hunted the boat even more. ting up at 2 a.m. and going ducks I made every effort This thing is so good; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s out to shoot ducks again. to be comfortable. My hunt- making me think about geting partners and I created several versions of boat blinds that would keep us from freezing by allowing us to have heat in the boat blind. The Beavertail Blind by Innovative Outdoor Solutions is so good, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m mad at myself for not coming up EaZVhZ 8dciVXi/ with the idea. The design is 6aaZg\nVcY based on the same design as 6hi]bV8ZciZg the convertible top on my d[C8 old Miata. There are bows, E]dcZ/ --("&(.( or ribs, that run from the bow to the stern of the boat. The whole blind is stored on one side of the boat and, to put the blind up, you simply grasp the first bow and pull it over to the other side of the boat. The rest of the bows follow and, when the bow in your hand gets to the other side of the boat, the blind is erected. The blind is covered with camo Cordura type material that will keep the water and wind off the 516984 hunters. Inside, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roomy and comfortable and a small propane heater would keep everybody inside comfortable and warm. There are openings like little sunroofs for the shooters to look and shoot from in the top and the blind material has a stretchy boot that extends to the bow, stern, and motor. Total time to erect the blind is about a minute. There are also pockets for natural cover to let you camo

Michael Shaw was 7 when painful tumors first appeared in his arm. Thirty-two years later, doctors haven’t been able to prevent the tumors from returning.

His aching arm After 77 surgeries and numerous visits to hospitals all over the Eastern U.S., Michael Shaw still needs help BY JIMMY TOMLIN ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER


IGH POINT – How many people can say they’ve been written up in the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine? Michael Shaw can. More than a decade ago, the 39year-old High Point man was the focus of an article written by one of his doctors at Duke University Medical Center, who was seeking guidance for the treatment of the mysterious tumors growing in Shaw’s right arm. “He got no response,” Shaw says dryly. And therein lies probably the biggest frustration of Shaw’s life: For more than 30 years, doctors – including specialists at some

’It felt like I was being hit on the arm with a baseball bat. ... It’s just never gone away.’ Michael Shaw of the country’s leading cancer treatment facilities – have been flummoxed by the painful, seemingly inexhaustible tumors that began appearing in Shaw’s arm when he was only 7. “Extremely frustrating,” Shaw says. “It’s been a tough road.” How tough? Consider this: Shaw has undergone 77 surgeries on his right arm, and it’s still riddled with tumors, from his wrist all the way up near his shoulder.



A special account has been established to help Michael Shaw with his medical expenses. The account is at the State Employees’ Credit Union in the name of Michael F. Shaw, and donations can be made at any branch. To find the nearest branch, visit Chemotherapy and radiation treatments have proved ineffective. The arm has grown weak from the removal of so much muscle tissue, and Shaw makes regular visits to a pain clinic for the intense throbbing in his arm. “After one of my surgeries,” he recalls, “when I woke up on the table, it felt like I was being hit on the arm with a baseball bat. They said that was normal, but it’s just never gone away.” Shaw lives in a small apartment and is on disability, unable to work because of the pain. The pain has been so bad, and the tumors so frustrating, that in the late 1990s Shaw asked to have the arm amputated. Doctors told him the phantom pain might be worse than what he was already experiencing, and that the surgery could increase the risk of the tumors spreading elsewhere, such as the lungs or the brain. “It’s a tumor of the lining of the blood vessel, so if you cut that blood vessel, then anywhere your blood goes, (the tumor) can go,” explains Patrick Watterson, a physician assistant at Bethany Medical Center who is Shaw’s local medical care provider. “So


Michael Shaw’s right arm shows scars from multiple surgeries. if you amputate the arm and the tumor spreads somewhere else, did you do any good for the patient?” He’s been to leading medical facilities – the Cleveland Clinic, Boston General, Harvard, the Mayo Clinic, Johns Hopkins – all to no avail. “All the top hospitals,” Shaw says, “and nobody has a clue about what to do.” This week, he’ll be at Duke University Medical Center, undergoing an exploratory procedure to see if doctors there can come up with a plan of action to treat the tumors. In the meantime, the tumors appeared in Shaw’s left forearm a couple of months ago, further complicating things. The left arm doesn’t hurt as much as the


right, but there is some pain, and Shaw hopes to head it off. The tumors first appeared as a small, purple blotch on Shaw’s right forearm when he was 7. His doctor lanced it, then decided to operate on it when it wouldn’t heal. “He opened me up, and when he saw what was in there, he closed me right back up,” Shaw says. “He said the tumors were something he’d never seen before, so he sent me to a specialist.” That was the beginning of a long, puzzling medical odyssey that has led to various diagnoses, none of which ever seemed to stick. The most logical diagnosis seems to be angiosarcoma, a rare


Hospice of Davidson County staff recently held the first of several special events to mark 25 years of serving terminally ill patients and their families with an unveiling of a 25th anniversary print designed by artist David Clark Smith. Staff members were also given a commemorative lapel pin. Agency officials announced that national Hospice and Palliative Care Organization president, Dr. J. Donald Schumacher, would be the guest speaker for a celebratory dinner and annual meeting on May 4. In early spring of last year, the agency moved to its new campus off U.S. 64 East. The 31-acre campus houses the county’s first inpatient facility, The Henry Etta and Bruce Hinkle Hospice House, and a Home Care/Administration office. In 2009, more than 150 patients were cared for at the 12-bed facility and over 500 patients received care under the Home Care program. The agency also provided bereavement support services to an additional 200 families. With the help of community support and volunteer efforts, Hospice of Davidson County is able to provide an expansive number of medical, social, spiritual and bereavement services. Several fundraisers are held annually to raise awareness and money so that patients and their families may receive services regardless of their ability to pay.

Man’s ‘love taps’ are no game to girlfriend D

ear Abby: My boyfriend recently moved in with me. We have a great relationship except that he is always slapping me on the bottom. He refers to it as “love taps.” I have told him many times I regard it as degrading and frustrating. It stings and I hate it. I have told him 10 different times in 10 different ways, including getting so angry I screamed obscenities at him. When we get into little arguments, he will say, “That’s it! You deserve a spanking for that!” and proceeds to hit me again. I know he thinks it’s cute, and he obviously gets some sort of enjoyment out of it, but I am at my wits’ end. How can I get it through his head that his behavior is not only offensive, it is seriously harming our relationship by creating resentment? Does he just not care about my feelings, or does he not take me seriously when I tell him to knock it off? – Sore in California

Dear Sore: When someone continues to do something after havADVICE ing been told that it Dear hurts, that Abby you don’t ■■■ like it, and that you want it stopped, what it shows is lack of respect for your feelings and your “space.” What is going on is not my definition of a “great” relationship. It’s one in which there is a serious communication problem. Now I have a question for you. What else does he ignore when you speak up? Dear Abby: I take the shuttle bus from work along with a group of others from the same company. Last week, I got out of work a little early and was already sitting on the bus when the others boarded. Not realizing that I was there, a man who works in an-



Sunday, Feb. 14, 2010 CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Freddie Highmore, 18; Drew Bledsoe, 38; Meg Tilly, 50, Florence Henderson, 76 HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Honesty will be the most important equation in everything you do. This will be a time for you to evaluate and to set your sights on goals that seemed too difficult to pursue in the past. Thoughts must be followed by actions. Accomplishment will open doors and allow you to start anew in many aspects of your life. Your numbers are 3, 5, 9, 20, 22, 41, 47 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Complete whatever you start and let everyone around you know that you mean business. Express your thoughts and feelings and find out exactly where you stand. Keeping things quiet or not making sure you are in the loop will provoke criticism later on. ★★★ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Getting involved in something you believe in will open up windows of opportunity. Trust in your own judgment, not someone else’s, and it will be you to whom everyone looks for guidance. Love is on the rise. ★★★★ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t allow your emotions to get you into trouble or cause you to be inconsistent. Sticking to your original game plan will give you the stability you need to capture the interest and the help of people with something to offer. ★★ CANCER (June 21-July 22): You can connect with someone who can offer you innovative ideas or a partnership that can help you advance. Love is on the rise and the chance to do something exciting with someone special must be taken advantage of. Travel will expand your mind. ★★★★★ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Money should be on your mind. Deals, contracts and legal matters must be scrutinized carefully for the highest returns. Don’t put up the money for someone else’s plans -- invest in what you have to offer. ★★★ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You’ll tend to overreact and overindulge, leading to arguments and difficulties with family and friends. Keep a lid on the way you feel and refrain from making irrational changes that will disrupt your life. You need to settle down and relax before you make a move. ★★★ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Strive for perfection. Stick to the things you do the best and that will bring the highest returns. Don’t let laziness be your demise. When given a responsibility, do the best job possible and do it fast. ★★★ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You may feel tension mounting but refrain from getting angry or into a feud that you cannot win. You do need to make some changes to your home and to yourself. A creative move will give you greater freedom to pursue your goals. ★★★★★ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Keep a close eye on your assets. Someone is likely to point out some dubious actions that may hurt your reputation or status. A personal problem will take your mind off what you should be concentrating on, leaving you vulnerable to criticism. ★★★★ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Moderation and practical applications will set you up for future gains. Get in touch with someone from your past if you think this person can offer you what you are looking for. An added responsibility may result in unwanted travel. ★★★ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Stick to whatever you are working toward until you have reached your goal. Sending the right signal will be important and a financial gain should encourage you to save for the future. ★★★ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t overreact or you will give your true feelings away, causing added tension between yourself and someone with whom you are affiliated. Keep things in perspective. Now is not the time to exaggerate. ★★★ ONE STAR: It’s best to avoid conflicts; work behind the scenes or read a good book. Two stars: You can accomplish but don’t rely on others for help. Three stars: If you focus, you will reach your goals. Four stars: You can pretty much do as you please, a good time to start new projects. Five stars: Nothing can stop you now. Go for the gold.

other department – whom I do not know well – said loudly, “I don’t think that old lady is here today.” Abby, I am not yet 60, and he is older than I am! I know that for a fact. His remark was within earshot of the other workers and the driver. Needless to say, I was deeply upset and humiliated. In fact, I wrote a letter to the human resources department but never

received a response. I have considered calling the crass fellow to tell him how much he embarrassed me. Should I? What would you do, Abby? – Loyal Reader, Any City, USA Dear Reader: Are you the only older female who rides the shuttle? And are you positive the remark was about you? My initial reaction was

that the man may have thought someone who usually takes the bus wasn’t there yet and he might have been voicing concern – as in, “Maybe we should wait a few minutes until she gets here.” Rather than calling him, I would let it go. If he was talking about you, he embarrassed HIMSELF with his tactlessness far more than he embarrassed you.

He had no books, took no educational trips, knew no scholars. Yet he reached for the sky. Why did it happen to David Hernandez and not the youngster with every advantage and opportunity? Why have so many children of prominent and loving parents grown up in ideal circumstances only to reject it all for the streets of Atlanta, San Francisco or New York? Good answers are simply not available. It apparently comes down to this: God chooses to use individuals in unique ways. Beyond that mysterious relationship, we must simply conclude that some kids seem born to make it and others are determined to fail. Someone reminded me recently that the same boiling water that softens the carrot also hardens the egg. Likewise, some individuals react positively to certain circumstances and others negatively. We don’t know why. Two things are clear to me from this understanding. First, parents have been far too quick to take

The meaning of “apnea” is “no breathing.” Sleep apnea consists of at least 10-second episodes of no breathing that can recur hundreds of times a night. The spells fragment sleep, deplete blood oxygen and cause many health problems, like high blood pressure, heart disease and stroke. Immediate consequences are daytime grogginess and involuntary bouts of daytime sleep. Quite often, people with sleep apnea are loud snorers. One particular snoring pattern is increasingly loud snores that suddenly stop with a period of complete silence. The silence is due to no breathing. Obstructive sleep apnea, the most common kind, comes about because lax tissues in the mouth and throat collapse on themselves and

obstruct air flow. Your teeth removal is not the cause. Perhaps the most effective treatment is CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure). Your HEALTH machine forces pressurized air Dr. Paul into the nose (and Donohue sometimes the ■■■ mouth) through a mask. The pressurized air can make its way through the obstruction in the throat and mouth. Your sore cheeks most likely are due to your mask. Many find the masks uncomfortable, but they come in all sorts of designs, sizes and materials. Ask your supplier for a different model. Or pad the sides of the mask that contact the face for greater comfort. I don’t know if this applies to you, but weight loss reduces apneic spells. A 10 percent loss in body weight greatly diminishes their frequency. Dear Dr. Donohue: I have a bulging disk in my back. Will you say something about this? – J.J.

backbones. They absorb the stress and strain we put on our backs by lifting, bending and twisting. They’re constructed like a jelly doughnut. They have a tough outer ring and an inner core of gelatinous material. The outer ring often frays with age, and the gelatinous material can protrude through it – a bulging or herniated disk. If the bulge presses on a nerve coming from the spine, pain results. When the pain runs down the leg, it’s called sciatica. Many bulging disks cause no pain, and nothing need be done. If they are painful, heat or ice applied to the affected area lessens the discomfort. Tylenol or one of the many nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs – Aleve, Advil, Motrin – eases pain. Sleeping on one side with a pillow between the knees is another way to control the pain. Only in a few cases is surgery needed. Sometimes doctors can perform disk surgery through small incisions without injuring back muscles. DR. DONOHUE regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

malignancy of the blood vessels. “They’re calling it ‘an atypical malignancy of unknown origin,’” Shaw says. “These are like supertumors that just keep fighting till the very end. The surgery won’t stop them. It’ll slow them down, but not for long.” Funny thing, though: Shaw smiles as he says this. Thirty-plus years battling a potentially lethal cancer, and he smiles about it? “You have to just keep smiling,” he explains. “If this had happened to me now, I don’t know how it would be, but I’ve grown up with this. It’s just a part of who I am.”

Shaw remains hopeful – optimistic, even – about his future. He speaks enthusiastically about a new procedure in which tiny gold particles are injected into the diseased blood vessels and heated, a process that destroys the cancerous cells without damaging the healthy cells. It’s not FDA-approved yet, but Shaw thinks he might someday be able to receive the treatment in a clinical trial. In the meantime, he keeps looking for a doctor who can help him. “I know there’s somebody out there,” he says. “I’ve just got to find them.”

Interactive tour uses ‘Top Chef’ theme BY BETH J. HARPAZ AP TRAVEL EDITOR


EW YORK – Why take a walking tour inspired by a cable series you’ve never seen? If the series is Bravo’s “Top Chef,” then the tour will be about cooking and food. And that’s something most people can relate to. “It’s a great concept, going around New York, tasting, talking to people, experiencing places,” said Anthony Tieu of San Francisco, one of eight people who showed up on a recent day for the tour, which is called “In the Steps of a Top Chef.” Participants on Tieu’s tour were a mix of locals and out-of-towners, devotees of the series and folks who’d never seen it. But they had one thing in common: “All of us like food a lot,” said another person in the group, Susan Yun, a New York-based caterer. The “Top Chef” series is a reality competition in which chefs are given cooking assignments, then judged by foodie superstars like Jacques Pepin and Lidia Bastianich. Each season is filmed in a different city; the sixth season, set in Las Vegas, just concluded. The walking tour includes venues from the fifth season, which took place in New York. But the tour is much more than a series of tastings. It also includes tips, quizzes, history, and even a chance to meet a chef who was a contestant. “I wanted to design the tour to be fun and interactive, like the show, and to really give people, in a fun and entertaining way, an idea of what it’s like to be a real chef,” said Joyce Weinberg, who offers the “Top Chef” tour and other food-themed tours through her company, City Food Tours. In addition, Weinberg’s guides are all trained chefs. Yun and Tieu’s tour was led by Nicole Harnett, who offered

commentary on everything from techniques for cooking chicken to the differences between cheeses from sheep, goats and cows. As with many other tours inspired by TV shows, like “Sex and the City” or “Gossip Girls,” there is no formal relationship between the tour and the show. A spokeswoman for Bravo had no comment on the tour. But one of the most popular stops on the tour is 24 Prince, a trendy bistro co-owned by Nikki Cascone, a chef who was a contestant on the show. The tour group sits at the bar, takes a trivia quiz, and enjoys snacks like flatbreads topped with cheese and veggies. Cascone drops by whenever she’s available to chat and share her experiences from the show, which included being vetted by lawyers and mental-health professionals.

“They don’t want us throwing knives at each other,” she explained. While the show is being filmed, she added, contestants are isolated from the outside world. “Someone’s telling you when to eat, when to go to the bathroom, you don’t know where you’re going or how much time you have,” she recalled. When the season was over, she kept having “nightmares about the clock.”


Nikki Cascone (right), a contestant in season four on television’s “Top Chef,” meets with people attending “In the Steps of a Top Chef “ in her New York restaurant 24 Prince. The tour itinerary may vary, but other stops include a Chinese bakery, a grand Beaux Arts building called Capitale where the show’s semifinal competitions were held, and a Little Italy store called Di Palo’s Fine Foods, where contestants shopped. Participants sampled three cheeses at Di Palo’s and especially liked cacio di bosco, a Tuscan pecorino with black truffles. The tour starts outside the French Culinary Institute, where an

Food allergy may be causing feline cystitis D

ear Dr. Fox: My 6-year-old neutered cat has a long history of urinary-tract inflammation. He sometimes urinates around the house and makes frequent trips to his box, where he crouches, moves his tail, and cries. He has had two cultures and X-rays. The vet can find nothing wrong. He is taking Valium, Clomipramine, fish oil and only wet food. This has helped, but what should I really be feeding him? Homemade food? – J.S., Rockville, Md. Dear J.S.: I take that your veterinarian could find “nothing wrong” to mean no evidence of urinary crystals/calculi or bacterial infection. Your cat may have a food hypersensitivity that is causing inflammation in the urinary bladder and tract. Corn is the most common culprit, and corn-sensitive cats on a corn-free diet can still have a flare-up when a corn-based cat litter is used. A not uncommon form of feline cystitis, which has elements of an autoimmune disease but the exact cause is unknown, is termed interstitial cystitis. This condition involves a chronic thickening and inflammation of the wall of the urinary bladder. Affected cats behave like yours does and may have blood in their urine. Stressors such as a new pet, houseguest or change of season can trigger an attack between stress-free quiescent periods. A cat drinking and urinating more often could have diabetes, and showing pain and discomfort while evacuating may well have impacted anal glands. Both possibilities should be considered. Your veterinarian may wish to explore herbal remedies, including astragalus, dandelion, couch grass, juniper berry and plantain. I would also give cranberry powder or capsules, probiotics and glucosamine, which has been shown to be beneficial for animals with cystitis.

you can see from the enclosed pictures of bubble-eyed goldfish, it is just one of the many ANIMAL abnormalities one DOCTOR sees in this apparently Dr. Michael hugely Fox profitable ■■■ industry. I am incensed and outraged to see it. The poor fish are so grossly disfigured, one wonders how they can even see food unless it is above their range of vision. If you go online, you can see fish with a heart on the side, much like a tattoo, and

disfiguring top notches on oranda breeds, to name a few. It’s bad enough and inhumane to give fish as children’s prizes at carnivals – surely the adults who should know better never consider the high mortality rate. Now we must be subjected to the disfigurement of such social creatures. Is it just a mere coincidence that these fish look sad? I hope you can say something that will urge people to give serious thought before they perpetuate this profitable industry by continuing to buy these fish. – B.L.McC., Chesapeake, Va. Dear B.L.McC.: I agree

with you absolutely. The deliberate breeding of genetically deformed fish (or any animal for that matter) and creating novel pets through genetic engineering are ethically reprehensible activities – just one dimension of human exploitation of animals that will not cease until we evolve into a more compassionate species. Scientists have shown that fish are highly intelligent creatures with pain receptors and neurochemical pathways associated with such emotional states as fear and anxiety. Some fish show evidence of loneliness and depression as well as insightful and

cooperative behavior. But, as with other animal species, humans treat fish like unfeeling commodities, throwaway objects of decorative, visual enjoyment. A well-managed aquarium with normal healthy fish may be the least offensive form of exploitation, but countless numbers of wild-caught and captivebred fish die before they ever reach a caring home.

ANOTHER PET-FOOD WARNING FROM THE FDA The U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a health alert on Jan. 15 for possible salmonella contamination of pet treats made and distributed by Merrick Pet Care of Ama-

Each has a “9323 best by 111911” stamped on the portion of the package that must be torn off to open it, according to the FDA.

Breast Enlargement Now Less Painful and A Great Time of Year To Do It Breast augmentation has, again, become one of the most popular cosmetic procedures. The silicon gel breast implant “fiasco” has faded (where it belongs,) and besides, we use saline implants most of the time anyway. Let’s talk about breast enlargement. When I am seeing a patient thinking of enlarging her breasts, the biggest reason she hasn’t already had the operation is usually the fear of pain. Now, pain is always an important reason. But, we have a great gadget to help with pain. The ON-Q Pain pump has been a true blessing for many of the painful operations we do. For instance, if you are considering a tummy tuck, we use it here too. This pump is like blowing up a balloon, except we use numbing medications (like

lidocaine which a dentist might use to numb your teeth.) The numbing fluid is slowly passed through a small tube that we insert next to your breast implant. The implant is bathed in the lidocaine for TWO DAYS. WOW! The worst of the pain occurs in the first two days, so you get help during the most painful time. We still give you narcotics, but narcotics sometime have side effects like nausea and constipation that obviously are less if you need less, and use less. Fantastic. So, what are you waiting for? Bathing suit season is coming soon. Having your surgery now is a good idea. The reason is that we are probably going to place the implant under the pectoralis (chest-come on, you can learn some anatomy too)

muscle. The thing about putting implants there is that it takes time for the pectoralis to stretch out. We need this stretching over weeks to months to allow the implant to lower itself into a correct position behind your breast. OK, what’s your excuse now? We can help you with the pain, and NOW is a great time to have breast augmentation. Get the body balance you want. I tell my patients we are in the Happy Business. And it’s true. Our breast enlargement patients are some of our happiest! Virgil V. Willard, II, MD

Landing on time First top executive for FedEx hub settles into job BY PAUL B. JOHNSON ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

GREENSBORO – Joe Stephens’ path from his native Indiana to the Triad starts with a job he took as a teenage college student on the ramp of a FedEx Corp. cargo operation. Stephens, then a 19-year-old engineering major at Purdue University, landed an entry-level job at the FedEx operation in Indianapolis, now one of the company’s major hubs. “I started out as a ramp agent loading and launching airplanes

‘I was always fascinated with aircraft and the whole inner workings of the FedEx operations. It still impresses me 21 years later.’

Joe Stephens Age: 40 Professional: First managing director of air-ground and freight services for FedEx Express at the mid-Atlantic hub at Piedmont Triad International Airport. His geographic scope of responsibility includes the entire network of FedEx Express operations in Raleigh, Charlotte, Greensboro, Columbia, S.C., GreenvilleSpartanburg, S.C., Norfolk, Va., Richmond, Va., and Roanoke, Va. Has more than 20 years of experience in the transportation industry, joining FedEx in 1989 as a ramp agent, loading and launching aircraft in Indianapolis. Education: Bachelor’s degree of science in electrical engineering from Purdue University.

Joe Stephens New FedEx Triad hub executive in the middle of the night,” said Stephens, a Plainfield, Ind., native who’s risen to become the top executive for FedEx at its cargo hub at Piedmont Triad International Airport. Twenty-one years after joining FedEx, Stephens has become the first managing director of airground freight services at the mid-Atlantic hub. He oversees an overnight sorting operation that was 11 years in the making. The hub opened June 1, becoming the linchpin for future economic development in the region. Stephens’ long connection to FedEx evolved as he took on more responsibilities. “I was always fascinated with aircraft and the whole inner workings of the FedEx operations. It still impresses me 21 years later. The fascination led me to want to become a true part of the FedEx team and make a career out of it,” he said during an interview in a

Stephens, 40, has managed operations across the United States for the Memphis-based overnight sorting conglomerate. He was part of an engineering team discussing a new overnight sorting operation on the East Coast when FedEx officials announced in April 1998 that the Triad had been picked for the company’s latest national cargo hub site. Stephens has ultimate responsibility for a FedEx operation that covers nearly 600,000 square feet on 168 acres. The company has 500 employees in the Triad, 200 at the hub at its outset, and maintains 5,400 truck routes and

315 flight operations monthly in the region. When FedEx announced plans for the hub in the spring of 1998, the pledge was to have 1,500 fulland part-time workers on site at full capacity. So far hiring at the hub has been stifled by the recession. The pace of new hiring will be driven by business growth and new employers moving into the region, Stephens said. The local economic landscape, with the loss of longtime textile mills and furniture factories, has changed noticeably since the hub announcement. “There has to be boxes, there has to be a customer base. But we’re open, we’re ready for business,” he said. Stephens has met with leaders of economic development groups in the region to specify what role the hub can play in recruiting new employers or encouraging existing ones to expand. “FedEx is committed to the community here,” he said. Supporters of the hub view the facility as one salvation for the region’s economy. But critics from the outset have complained that FedEx’s extra late-night and early-morning flights will generate aircraft noise disrupting the quality of life in places such as north High Point and western Greensboro and Guilford County. Stephens said that FedEx “has made significant investments” in aircraft that produce less intrusive noise. “Noise isn’t as much of an issue as it was previously with olderstyle airplanes – much more desirable than it was in the ‘70s and ‘80s, and even the ‘90s, for that matter,” Stephens said. In addition, Stephens said that projections of daily flights that


have been published since the hub announcement don’t reflect the current capacity of the hub. Reports such as Federal Aviation Administration studies dating back to 2000 indicate that FedEx would have up to 126 daily flight operations between 10 p.m. and 4 a.m. But Stephens said the current number of gates at the hub would support 44 daily flight operations. “I think a lot of the information published is based upon ‘maxsite’ numbers. To be quite honest with you, we don’t launch 126 flights out of Indianapolis, and it’s seven times the size of this facility in terms of aircraft parking and four times the size of this facility in terms of box (sorting) capacity,” he said. As the company has done in other parts of the country, FedEx will become integrally involved in charitable activities, Stephens said. “As an employer, as we grow, you have that many more people that can rally behind those types of organizations,” he said. One example of its outreach already – earlier this month, FedEx shipped a gorilla from a zoo in another part of the country to the N.C. Zoological Park in Asheboro. Like the vast majority of FedEx supervisors, Stephens can tap into an experience of having started out as a line employee. He said that background is critical to running the hub. “I’ve been there, and I’ve done that. So I can relate to the challenges they face day in and day out. It helps you from a leadership standpoint understand the dynamics of an operation,” Stephens said. | 888-3528

ASK A.P.: Question concerns Super Bowl ads. 2F

This image provided by E-Trade shows part of a television ad that aired during the Super Bowl. A reader-submitted question about Super Bowl advertising is being answered as part of an Associated Press Q&A column called “Ask AP.”

Questions concern Super Bowl ads, reporting on disasters THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Curiosity about the effect journalists have on a disaster area 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. Go to http://www.apnews. com/ to learn more. Q. I have a question about Super Bowl ads. As we all know, they sell for enormous amounts of money. But how do they set the number of ads to be sold? Also, what if the game goes into overtime or runs longer than expected, and they have already shown all of the ads that were sold? Jeff Vanderslice Plantation, Fla. A. The National Football League and the TV network showing the Super Bowl decide how much advertising time the Super Bowl will have. The Super Bowl has never gone into overtime. But if it does, the advertising gets complicated. The networks don’t just repeat ads from earlier, but do have ads ready to go. That’s because advertisers lock in spots for overtime, but they don’t pay unless the ads air, said Kyle Acquistapace, media direc-

tor of ad agency Deutsch. The air time – sold in 30 second chunks – costs about the same as ads during regular play. Some of the ads might have been scheduled for the postgame coverage, some are altogether new ads. Essentially, everything is subject to negotiation between the advertisers and the TV network. For example, a deal might specifically include the opportunity to get into the game if it goes into overtime, for which an advertiser might pay extra. Sometimes an advertiser will get an overtime ad slot in exchange for buying commercial time on other broadcasts, Acquistapace said. NBC sold 69 ad spots for last year’s Super Bowl. CBS won’t give a specific number but says it has sold close to that number and that its commercial time is sold out. Some of the slots cost more than $3 million for 30 seconds. Emily Fredrix AP Marketing Writer New York Q. In disaster situations like the recent Haitian earthquake, it appears that thousands of members of news crews descend on a locale already lacking sufficient necessities such as electricity, food, security, water, medical facilities and roads. How are they generally supported? Do they represent an additional demand on these resources? Jack Smith Springfield, Ill.

A. As disasters go, Haiti’s 7.0 earthquake presented unprecedented challenges. Associated Press writer Jonathan Katz, the only full-time U.S. journalist based in the hemisphere’s poorest country, was soon joined by more than 50 other AP staffers who came in on charter planes from the States and by helicopter and road from the Dominican Republic. These journalists managed to show the world the extent of the disaster in words, pictures and video – coverage that drew attention to desperate needs and probably helped encourage Americans to donate more than $644 million for relief efforts so far. To support these staffers, the AP brought in three small cargo flights of supplies, from electric generators to dishes to satellite phones and walkie-talkies, along with food, water, medicine – and flak jackets. Since the AP’s bureau was destroyed, many of the staff slept in tents outside a nearby hotel, transmitting from the roof and making a point of traveling in teams for security as well as to report in all formats. Haiti’s devastated infrastructure and the survivors’ tremendous need for food and water meant AP’s operation had to be self-sufficient. Aside from occupying hotel rooms and buying gasoline for the generators at $25 a gallon, AP staffers made few demands on Haiti’s limited resources. The AP’s small cargo plane landed at the main airport, but did little to slow the aid coming in huge cargo jets competing for landing slots. Michael Warren Chief of Southern Cone News

New local political group organizes ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

HIGH POINT – A local chapter is forming of the national political group Get Out Of Our House! (GOOOH), which aims to oust incumbents in the U.S. House of Representatives during this year’s elections. The High Point area chapter will meet at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 21 at Providence Place, 1701 Westchester Drive, Town Center main entrance. The state director of GOOOH, which is pronounced “go,” Larry Porter, visited High Point last week to promote for-

mation of the city chapter. According to its Web site,, members want “to evict the 435 career politicians in the U.S. House of Representatives and replace them with everyday Americans ...” Organizers say the group is nonpartisan. National goals of the group include recruiting candidates for the Nov. 2 general election and securing at least 500,000 members. “We will continue to build our base of supporters until we have the participation we need, at which time we will be-

gin our effort to access the ballot,” according to GOOOH’s Web site. In some states, the group will form a GOOOH party for candidates; in others they may run as independents. “In others we may run as a Republican or Democrat, even competing in the primary if time allows. We may run on some other Party’s ticket, such as the Libertarian Party or the Constitution Party,” GOOOH reports. For more information about the local group or meeting, call Dan Price at 472-8216.


WINSTON-SALEM – Democrat Billy Kennedy, a farmer from Watauga County, filed last week to challenge Republican Virginia Foxx, a three-term incumbent, for the 5th Congressional District seat. Foxx also filed last week.

Kennedy, who also is a radio announcer and a carpenter, stopped during lunchtime at the Forsyth County Democratic Party’s headquarters in Winston-Salem, where he told about 60 supporters that he believes Washington legislators support corporate interests over the people they are elected to represent. “We need a representative in Washington who

looks out for us and not just the privileged few, and it’s time we did something about that,” Kennedy said. Kennedy hosts a callin radio show, “Watauga Talks.” He moved to western Watauga County in 1980 and is married with three children. The 5th District includes Forsyth, Wilkes and Watauga counties, and is heavily Republican.

Kennedy said he is unfazed by the party politics. “I think people are smarter than that,” he said. “I think once they see the facts and see the way (Foxx) is really voting – she’s not voting in their interests.” Loretta Clawson, a Democrat and the mayor of Boone, said she thinks Kennedy can unseat Foxx.

Sinatra, Martin to receive stars


Actor and musician Jamie Foxx (left) poses alongside high school students from Renaissance Arts Academy in Los Angeles who had just received new musical instruments last week at Disney Hall in Los Angeles. More than $500,000 worth of new musical instruments were donated by Fidelity FutureStage to public schools in Los Angeles, Boston, Houston and Chicago.

Actor, musician Jamie Foxx delivers music, instruments to kids LOS ANGELES (AP) – Jamie Foxx wanted to entertain a group of musically inclined high school students with a few bars from his Grammy winning hit, “Blame It.” But since the song is an ode to the effects of alcohol, he changed the lyrics to “Blame it on the a-aa-apple juice.” The kids roared. “I changed it so you guys could sing it,” he joked. Students from four high schools gathered last week at Walt Disney Concert Hall, where Foxx helped present new violins, flutes, French horns, trumpets and drums val-

ued at $500,000 to students from 16 schools nationwide. The instruments are part of the Fidelity FutureStage program, an effort by the investment firm to enrich arts education in public schools. Founded in 2006, the program provides instruments, specialized training by professional musicians, and a chance for aspiring artists to perform with renowned orchestras such as the Los Angeles Philharmonic and Boston Pops. Foxx told students he began as a classical pianist and eventual-

ly won a scholarship to study the instrument in college. “That allowed me to come to L.A. and work on my craft,” he said. “Then I went into acting and comedy, and then it was Ray Charles ...” Foxx, 42, who won an Oscar for his portrayal of Charles in “Ray,” got the crowd fired up and had them chanting “mu-sic, mu-sic” before students came on stage to accept shiny new saxophones, clarinets and other instruments. “This is way better than our old stuff,” one student said.

Dominic Monaghan hosted the program, which was simulcast in Boston, Houston, Chicago and Los Angeles. Students in all four cities performed and received donated instruments. After the program, Foxx praised Fidelity for stepping in where public funding had failed. He also encouraged other companies to participate. “Even if a kid is not going to be the greatest musician in the world, just the fact that you gave him something, the fact that you said, ‘hey, I care about you,’ that’s what it’s about,” Foxx said.

LAS VEGAS (AP) – Sin City is paying homage to iconic singers Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin by giving them each a place on the Las Vegas Walk of Stars. Las Vegas Walk of Stars spokesman Pablo Castro Zavala said stars for the crooners would be unveiled Feb. 22 in a ceremony at the Flamingo Las Vegas casino-resort. The stars will then be placed in the sidewalk outside the Flamingo on the Las Vegas Strip. Sinatra and Martin are icons of Sin City entertainment because of their appearances on stage, in film and on television. The Rat Pack performers appeared in the 1960 movie “Ocean’s Eleven,” about a plan to rob five Las Vegas casinos in one night. Officials say Dean Martin’s daughter Deana Martin will accept his star on behalf of her father.

Royal Shakespeare Company plans NY visit NEW YORK (AP) – Call it Stratfordupon-Hudson. Or maybe the East River. Great Britain’s Royal Shakespeare Company will take up residence at New York’s Park Avenue Armory in 2011, presenting five Shakespeare plays in repertory July 6-Aug. 14, Lincoln Center Festival and the armory announced recently. The plays will be chosen from the company’s 2009 and 2010 seasons and could include “Antony and Cleopatra,” “As You Like It,” “Julius Caesar,” “King Lear,” “Romeo and Juliet” or “The Winter’s Tale.” The six-week engagement will be part of Lincoln Center Festival 2011, according to festival director Nigel Redden, who called the visit a “unique opportunity to experience Shakespeare’s plays performed by an ensemble of actors whom they (audiences) will get to know over the course of watching five different productions.” The 44-member acting troupe will perform in a 930-seat thrust-stage auditorium that will be installed in the armory’s Wade Thompson Drill Hall. It will be a replica of

the RSC’s Courtyard Theatre where the company currently performs. The structure will take two weeks to build. “Our thrust stage, wrapping the audience around the action, allows people to reach out to our actors and to each

The Kings of Leon accept the award for record of the year for “Use Somebody” at the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles on Jan. 31.

Bonnaroo to feature Kings of Leon, Dave Matthews Band NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Bonnaroo is known for its eclectic lineup. This summer’s roster takes it to a new level. Organizers announced a lineup last week that features the Dave Matthews Band, Kings of Leon, Stevie Wonder and Jay-Z at the head of a list that includes a little bit of everything. The festival will be held June 10-13 on a 700acre farm in Manchester, Tenn., about 60 miles south of Nashville. Other top names in the genre-jumping lineup of 125 acts include Norah Jones, Weezer, Jack White’s newest band The Dead Weather, Nas (NAHZ) with Damian Marley, and the Flaming Lips will perform Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon.”

Bonnaroo also features a formidable comedy lineup led by Chris Rock, Jimmy Fallon and Jack Black’s Tenacious D. The headlining slot earned by Kings of Leon is a milestone for the Nashville-area band, which won a Grammy for record of the year for “Use Somebody.” They are the first band to start on a tiny tent stage at the festival, then go on to a headline slot.

Black history tribute President Obama says music fueled the civil rights movement WASHINGTON (AP) – Crediting civil rights-era protest songs and their spiritual predecessors for his election, President Barack Obama on Tuesday sat in the East Room of his White House and listened to an all-star lineup of performers pay tribute to the music that he said fueled freedom marches and civil disobedience. The nation’s first black president transformed the grand ballroom into a concert hall packed with members of his Cabinet, Congress, civil rights leaders and students for a program that aired on public television later in the week for Black History Month. Queen Latifah’s rendition of the Marvin Gaye classic “What’s Going On” and Yolanda Adams’ spirited rendi-

tion of Sam Cooke’s “A Change Is Gonna C o m e ” were early highlights of a night Obama that continued the Obamas’ effort to open the White House to America’s soundtrack. “The civil rights movement was a movement sustained by music,” Obama said as he welcomed his audience. He said activists from coast to coast were inspired by spirituals, felt their will sharpened by protest songs and base broadened by artists of hope. He said their work paved the way toward a more just America that allowed him to make history in 2008 with his elec-

tion. “Tonight, we celebrate the music of the movement,” Obama said. That celebration was supposed to come on Wednesday, but faced with another major winter storm the White House decided to move the concert ahead by a day. As guests packed the first floor of the executive mansion, heavy snow landed on the South

Lawn and blanketed the rest of Washington. Smokey Robinson, Bob Dylan and Joan Baez were on the schedule of performers, along with Natalie Cole, Jennifer Hudson, John Legend, John Mellencamp, Seal and the

Blind Boys of Alabama. The Howard University Choir and The Freedom Singers performed at a mansion that in its history was maintained by slaves. Morgan Freeman, who read excerpts from historical works throughout

the night, harkened back to the song lyrics Obama invoked during his election-night victory speech in Chicago’s Grant Park. “A long time coming,” Freeman said. He later deadpanned: “I wish I could sing.”

Government fitness efforts haven’t stemmed kid obesity WASHINGTON (AP) – First lady Michelle Obama isn’t the first national leader to try to get America’s kids off the couch. President Dwight D. Eisenhower tried more than 50 years ago, and it’s been a losing battle since. Childhood obesity has been on the rise in recent decades, with 17 percent of children considered obese and about one in three of them overweight. Which means Mrs. Obama has her work cut out for her, much as Eisenhower did when he created the President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports in 1956. The presidents who followed him took on the struggle as well. “Efforts like the president’s council have been overwhelmed over the years by trends in society that push kids in the other direction,” said


First lady Michelle Obama announced a campaign to combat the rapidly growing problem of childhood obesity earlier this week. Russell Pate, a professor of exercise science at the University of South Carolina. He cited a “triple whammy” – the advent of video games, the reliance on cars to get around and the rise of a high-fat,

fast-food diet – that undermines a healthy lifestyle for kids. In announcing her “Let’s Move” campaign Tuesday, Mrs. Obama made clear that physical fitness is key to what she’s trying to do and that there is a role for the Eisenhower-era fitness council. The administration will upgrade the council’s Physical Fitness Challenge, she said, and give awards to kids who engage in physical activity five days a week for six weeks. Besides getting kids to exercise, Michelle Obama’s campaign aims to help parents and schools make better food choices and make healthy food more available and affordable. The fitness council’s 20 volunteer members are charged with encouraging physical activity, fitness and sports programs.

Chilling aerial photos of 9/11 attack released NEW YORK (AP) – A trove of aerial photographs of the collapsing World Trade Center was widely released this week, offering a rare and chilling view from the heavens of the burning twin towers and the apocalyptic shroud of smoke and dust that settled over the city. The images were taken from a police helicopter – the only photographers allowed in the airspace near the skyscrapers on Sept. 11, 2001. They were obtained by ABC after it filed a Freedom of Information Act request last year with the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the federal agency that investigated the collapse. The chief curator of the planned Sept. 11 museum pronounced the pictures “a phenomenal body of work.” The photos are “absolutely core to understand-

ing the visual phenomena of what was happening,” said Jan Ramirez of the National September 11 Memorial & Museum. They are “some of the most exceptional images in the world, I think, of this event.” In some of the pictures, the tops of the nearby Woolworth Building and other skyscrapers can just be seen above the enormous cloud of debris, gray against a clear blue sky. Gray clouds billow through the streets of the financial district and shroud the 16 acres where the towers had stood just moments before. Buildings can hardly be seen at all in one image – just dust clouds hanging over the Hudson River at the southern tip of Manhattan. Ramirez said the museum, slated to open in 2012, hopes to get a complete set of the photos.
