LOST AND FOUND: Missing High Point woman found in Greensboro. 1B


HIGH POINT – A High Point church with a rich tradition has invited the public to share in its history at a celebration planned for this weekend. The event, billed as a Black History Appreciation service, is planned for Saturday at First Baptist Church on E. Washington Drive, the city’s oldest AfricanAmerican church. Musical performances and other entertainment are planned. Organizers said they want the day to highlight the history of the E. Washington Drive church – which was founded by former slaves in 1871 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places last year – and the city’s African-American community in general. “We want to further the knowledge of our historical status. The total church community is not yet aware of that status,” said the Rev. Robert White, the church’s associate minister. “We certainly hope First Baptist will maintain its leadership in the area, as it has enjoyed the leadership of the past.” In addition to an emphasis on music from several area artists, the program will include a recognition of the Feb. 11 Association and the sit-in staged by local high school students at the former F.W. Woolworth store in High Point on Feb. 11, 1960, from the High Point Chamber of Commerce, White said. The historical designation made First Baptist eligible for tax credits that could be used to facilitate renovations to the aging church building. Church leaders have looked into this but haven’t pursued their options yet, White said. The church has struggled with dwindling membership numbers in recent years, but White said he and others still are hopeful that First Baptist and the surround-

There is no admission fee, and the public is invited.

ARCHDALE – The Archdale City Council on Tuesday night adopted a plan that will guide development along N.C. 62. At its regular monthly meeting, the City Council unanimously approved the plan that city officials decided to embark on last year because they said the current configuration of N.C. 62 is not expected to handle the anticipated growth in the area. “With the existing Interstate 85 interchange with N.C. 62 and the soon-to-be-complete Interstate 74, there is great potential for economic development, as well as new residential opportunities for northern Archdale,” said Jeff Wells, Archdale’s planning and zoning director. The plan, which came at a price tag of $65,000, was funded by the N.C. Department of Transportation and the High Point Metropolitan Planning Organization. The city hired the Urban Resource Group, a division of Kimley Horn and Associates, to come up with the plan. The plan determines a proper design for N.C. 62, as well as connecting streets within the area for the future. “This document will provide us with the guide to, over time, ensure that the corridor is safe and provides an interconnected network of streets for the motoring public as N.C. 62 transitions from a two-lane rural corridor to a multi-lane urban corridor,” Wells said. In other business, the City Council approved a resolution in favor of a one-quarter cent tax increase to help Randolph

PTIA expansion could be complete by spring BY PAUL B. JOHNSON ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

GREENSBORO – The sights and sounds of heavy machinery equipment at Piedmont Triad International Airport are starting to fade toward a conclusion for the biggest expansion in the history of the airport. The more than $500 million expansion to make way for the FedEx Corp. cargo hub should be finalized this spring.

Planners OK Presbyterian Home requests BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – Requests from Presbyterian Homes Inc. were approved at the Planning and Zoning Commission’s meeting Tuesday night after the voting was postponed at last month’s meeting. The commission voted 5-0 to approve requests that will allow a building up to 7,000 square feet and 40 feet in height to be built along a northeast corner of the land owned by the company off of Sandy Ridge Road. Commission members Jim White and Joe Humble excused themselves from the voting process due to business ties with the company. Tim Webster, president of Presbyterian Homes Inc., said the company had plans to build an office that could include accounting offices and other

management services for Presbyterian Homes, River Landing and two other nursing homes in the state. He presented plans for a one-story 5,300square-foot office building at the meeting. “Our plans are to add management services,” he said. “The building will be brick in uniform with the surrounding community. We could end up building two to three more buildings in the future.” Mike Scott, a resident who’s property sits across the street from the rezoned site, said he had concerns that the plans could change to a two-story building in the future because the rezoning allows for buildings up to 40 feet in height. Scott said a two-story office building across from his property could be an eye-sore. Because Scott’s neighborhood already allows for residential units to be

Lawyers for Edwards’ mistress accuse aide of theft HILLSBOROUGH (AP) – Attorneys for John Edwards’ mistress on Tuesday accused a former aide to the Democratic presidential candidate of theft after he turned over a video camera that belonged to the woman. Attorneys for Rielle Hunter said the video camera was taken from a home where she had been living. The video camera was one of several items that ex-aide Andrew

Young gave to the judge. Young’s attorney said he did not know whether the video camera was Hunter’s or whether it belonged to Edwards’ presidential campaign. Hunter has sued Young for invasion of privacy and sought the return of the videotape purportedly showing Edwards in a sexual encounter with his pregnant mistress. That video has been turned over to the court and placed under seal. | 888-3617

built up to 50 feet in height, commission member Kathy Carter said she approved the rezonings. “Anyone who lives in (Scott’s development) is already at risk of living next to a 50-foot-tall building,” she said. The commission also continued the city’s street abandonment initiative, recommending approval to abandon an unimproved portion of Sheldon Court, an unimproved alley lying east of N. Hamilton Street between Guilford Avenue and Louise Avenue, and an unimproved right-of-way lying north of Franklin Avenue between Brentwood Street and New Street. Those cases next will go to City Council for approval. The commission has three street abandonment cases on its agenda for its next meeting on March 23.


Advertising firm nixes puppet cleavage COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) – Puppet cleavage has been ruled out for advertising posters in Colorado Springs bus shelters. Lamar Advertising rejected posters for a touring production of the Broadway show “Avenue Q” because they

Karzai takes control of vote fraud panel KABUL – Afghanistan’s President Hamid Karzai has taken control of a formerly independent body that monitors election fraud, raising concern Tuesday he’s reneging on promises to clean up corruption. In another effort to win the trust of Afghans as a mass offensive continues against the Taliban in the south, Gen. Stanley McChrystal, the commander of U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan, made a rare televised appearance Tuesday to apologize for an airstrike Sunday that killed civilians.

Al-Qaida leader threatens new US attacks CAIRO – A senior operative of the al-Qaida network in Yemen – the group that claimed responsibility for the failed Christmas Day attack on an American passenger jet over Detroit – has threatened more attacks on the United States. The U.S. has become increasingly worried about militants based in Yemen. Qasim al-Raimi warned Americans in an article published in an online militant magazine that the group “will blow up the earth from below your feet.”

Iran nuclear offer falls short of demands VIENNA – Iran has formally set out its terms for giving up most of its cache of enriched uranium in a confidential document – and the conditions fall short of what has been demanded by the United States and other world powers. Washington dismissed the document – seen by The Associated Press on Tuesday – as a “red herring” and warned it would consult with its allies on new penalties on Iran to punish it for its nuclear defiance.

LEONARD PITTS: We the people take a backseat to corporate money. TOMORROW

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


Bipartisan cooperation would help solve problems Look, it’s clear that this country’s government can’t function unless there is bipartisanship. So Republicans, on all of these issues that we face, why not let the Democrats have something that they want, and likewise Democrats, why not let the Republicans have something that they want? That’s the only way any progress is going to come. We need changes in education, in health care, in our income tax structure, in energy policy and in other things. For either party to refuse to negotiate and compromise is foolish, and it hurts this country badly. It’s time to stop this nonsense and move forward as best we can, even if it is only incrementally small steps at a time. Obama is the most practical, most pensive and most persuasive president we’ve had in a long time. But at every turn in the road to progress, he’s run into obstructions. The “bully pulpit” has been drowned out by Internet drivel, absurd Twitter chatter and partisan poppy-cock. Obama has worked hard at trying to get bipartisan cooperation on solving the problems facing this country. Instead of taking advantage of the Democratic majority in Congress and forcing through health care, he asked both parties to work on it together and bring something acceptable to the country to him. But at every step, an almost unanimous and partisan-motivated Republican Party obstructed those efforts. In this mid-term election year, everything is about political gain. It has reached the ridiculous level of legislation to form a bipartisan budget commission being blocked by Republican senators who had supported or even sponsored the legislation previously. To paraphrase Joe Klein in a recent

the natural laws of physics! What difference does it make? As we spiral toward a national debt greater than our Gross National Product, increased regulations without cost/benefit scrutiny, and increased government intervention in the market place, our grandchildren will become dependent upon central government for sustenance. Chronic unemployment, allocation of scarcity, and ultimately, loss of personal liberty, will become the fruits of change you can believe in and the legacy of Obama ideologues. JOE EXUM SR.

Obama can’t abrogate the laws of economics Perhaps the most outrageous propaganda the Obama disciples broadcast is the studied repudiation of the prosperity created by the Reagan marginal tax cuts in 1982. According to their propaganda, these cuts caused massive deficits. Not true. The tax cuts created unprecedented tax revenues and helped preserve Social Security. The Congress caused unprecedented deficits by refusing to approve Reagan’s budget forcing a continuing resolution which allowed unbridled spending by the Democrat Congress. In budgetary mat-



Rid areas of housing blight


hilosophically, we’re for less rather than more government control. When it comes to ridding neighborhoods of deteriorating and dilapidated structures, we believe it is necessary for government to step in, especially if property owners won’t bring them up to code, and have them demolished. That’s why we applaud High Point City Council for adopting ordinances recently to demolish four houses that have been deemed substandard based on numerous code violations. In addition, a fifth dwelling (1150-B Roberts Lane) for which inspectors found unsafe equipment was not repaired by owners, was ordered to be vacated and closed. Because of deteriorating conditions and associated blight on the neighborhoods, demolition was ordered for properties at 1112 E. Russell Ave., 525 Walnut St., 1807 Johnson St. and 1306 Vernon Place. The High Point Enterprise has provided information over the years that explains that taking such action can be a long and involved process. We’re pleased to see that the city hasn’t allowed that to be an excuse not to take corrective action and is moving forward with demolition of deteriorating structures. We certainly hope such vigilance and corrective action continues. Other people who own and/or reside in properties that are cared for properly in such neighborhoods deserve to have action taken to rid the area of blight.



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

ters, the president proposes, the Congress disposes: Poli Sci 101. The acceptance of the premise Reagan’s marginal tax cuts caused massive deficits is prerequisite to accepting the mindnumbing mantra: the stimulus package has saved ...... million jobs (fill in the blank) and without it we would be in a great depression. Wrong! Except for universities and government, the stimulus package has not only failed to create jobs, unlike the Reagan tax cuts, the stimulus package has been revenue negative! Think about it. Sustainable jobs are not created by central planners regardless of IQ. Sustainable job creation is the spontaneous result of the natural economic law of market allocation of resources. Why didn’t FDR create Google instead of the CCC? Why not the National Football League instead of the Internal Revenue Service? Obama and his messianic intellectuals have neither the vision nor the prescience to abrogate the natural law of economics anymore than they can repeal

It’s time to begin the second American tax revolt


e are speeding toward an economic cliff because our government can’t practice restraint. We spend so much more than we take in because politicians at every level use the public treasury to win elections. The public mostly accepts lavish promises of more and more federal spending because the cost of government has been so effectively divorced from what actually comes out of our paychecks. Ask almost anyone how they did on their taxes and you’re likely to hear a happy exclamation that the taxpayer got a little money back! But ask the same person how much they paid the government over the year in withheld income and payroll taxes and you’ll often see a blank look. When the money that government spends seems so unconnected to the money we earn it is easy for many to see government expenditures as “free money.” It’s not, but the engineered divorce in perception between the fruits of our labors and spending by elected officials has resulted in a national debt that equals more than $500,000 per American household. If not for accounting sleights-of-hand the national debt would be seen as much higher than even the shocking figure of more than $12 trillion. As my father, Ronald Reagan, once said, “Our federal tax system is, in short, utterly impossible, utterly unjust and completely counterproductive, it reeks with injustice and is fundamentally un-American ... it has earned a rebellion and it’s time we rebelled.” I agree and that’s why I am enthusiastically now helping with pending legislation to replace the income tax entirely with a fair, progressive and honest national consumption tax aptly called the FairTax. It ends all federal taxes on income and earnings and replaces every penny now raised with a 23 percent tax on personal consumption at the point of final retail sale. In conducting research on the FairTax, I have become convinced of two things: the FairTax is the best way to create a new era of healthy American economic growth, and that my father would have been a strong proponent of the FairTax as a tax reform/replacement model had it existed during his time in government.

Among many virtues, like the effect the FairTax will have on bringing trillions of private, job-producing investment dollars into our economy, the FairTax restores critically needed transparency to government spending. Because the taxpayer sees OPINION the cost of government on every receipt, the relationship between Michael personal earnings and governReagan ment spending becomes crystal ■■■ clear. This will inevitably lead to public pressure to restrain spending – and not a moment too soon. Workers take home paychecks free of federal withholding and FICA taxes under the FairTax. This is a stimulus idea that we all need. Congressional corruption of the tax code disappears under the FairTax because there are no exemptions that can be expanded and sold for profit and power by tax writing committees to the favored few. In essence, those who spend more pay higher taxes. Instead of exemptions that can manipulated by Congress, the FairTax issues a monthly “prebate” check that covers the taxes we will pay on the necessities of life and which wipes out all federal taxes on spending up to the poverty level. In addition, hidden income-tax costs now embedded in the price of products we pay will also be eliminated and brought into the bright light of public scrutiny. When you consider that fat cats, illegal immigrants and the underground economy all become part of the tax base, as consumers, it is easy to see that we can all pay less of a share for government. It’s just a better, more honest and simple way to collect federal taxes, and one that makes April 15 just another spring day. It’s time for the second American tax revolt, and that’s why I am helping lead the FairTax national movement and encouraging everyone to join the cause by visiting MIKE REAGAN, the elder son of the late President Ronald Reagan, is president of The Reagan Legacy Foundation ( His column is distributed exclusively by Cagle Cartoons, Inc., newspaper syndicate.

For long-term, I’ll gladly be a geek I



want to be a geek. I mean right now, most everywhere, geeks are looked at as outcasts, the undesired rejects of society. But in a few years, every brat littering their high school today, who spends their four major school years traumatizing the less popular breed of people cluttering the halls, will wish they’d been defined as a “geek.â€? At this time, being called a geek is an insult, but as time wanders on, the term becomes less and less insulting. In the long run, geeks will be raking in the big bucks, while the same narrow-minded jerks that laughed at them in school will be mastering the phrase, “Would you like fries with that?â€? The very things that seem to make these people “coolâ€? are their partying ways and blasĂŠ attitude to any and all things involving school work; so wouldn’t mediocre jobs and a medium wage salary be the most expected outcome? How can drinking underage and harassing innocent kids broaden your

scholastic horizons? The majority of the bullies are jocks who assume they TEEN VIEW will go places with Hailey football Hendrix and/or ■■■ basketball. But the cold, hard truth is only a very slim percentage of the people who aspire to go pro actually make it. And when you fail to have a backup plan, where does that land you?

when your previous objective was to play a sport that you loved professionally. Webster’s Dictionary defines a geek as a “person who has chosen concentration rather than conformity; one who pursues skill (especially technical skill) and imagination, not mainstream social acceptance.� Well, those who work with computers and such are in high demand, especially in this rapidly transforming day and age. It would be incomparably blissful to not care about being accepted and care only about being yourself! Kids can be cruel and spiteful, and not just in school, but life in general would be so much easier if we we’re capable of simply not caring. Four years of being

perceived as an outsider to the “normal� slacking student body seems well worth the trade-off. Having fun and blowing off your studies might be what makes you intriguing to others in high school, but later in life being capable of carrying on an intellectual conversation and holding down a job is of way more importance. So yes, I want to be a geek, and I want to be able to genuinely not care about the nasty things people might say about me. Maybe one day, hopefully sooner rather than later, I will hear someone whisper the word “geek� with my name laced into the sentence.

Sen. Reid seeks extension of unemployment benefits tucky over what to include in catchall legislation to help the long-term unemployed, extend several expired tax breaks and prevent doctors from suffering a big cut in their Medicare reimbursements. The measure would cost more than the jobs bill the Senate was expected to approve on Tuesday. It mostly clears up business left unfinished because of last year’s health care debate. There is nothing new in the emerging measure to spur job growth.

Yvonne Johnson, executive director of One Step Further and former Greensboro mayor, received the Greensboro Economic Development Alliance’s Stanley Frank Lifetime Achievement Award. The award is presented annually to members of the community who have given many years of dedicated service in support of building a better Greensboro and Guilford County.


JAMESTOWN – Educators from across Guilford County will hold a summit March 10 at Guilford Technical Community College to discuss ways to prepare high school students for college. The day long session will be held at Koury Hospitality Careers Center. Educators from the pre-school level to 12th grade and from two-year and four-year colleges and universities are expected to participate. Scheduled featured speakers include Erskine B. Bowles, outgoing president of the University of North Carolina System and recent appointee by President Barack Obama to be co-chairman of the new National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform. Bowles was White House chief of staff for former President Bill Clinton. Bowles will be the afternoon keynote speaker at 1 p.m. Also participating in the summit will be representatives of Guilford County Schools, Guilford Educational Alliance, North Carolina Agricultural &Technical State College, Greensboro College, Guilford College, Bennett College and the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. GTCC President Don Cameron said “being ready for college” means a student has prepared to have a good educational experience. “GTCC can more efficiently train students for the workforce who enter the college with the expected competencies,” Cameron said. “Noncredit developmental courses, which many students are required to take, slow their preparation for the workforce and often contribute to their disillusionment with our educational process.” The summit will focus on academic advising, financial aid literacy, social and psychological competence and successful study skills. John Roueche, director of the community college leadership program at the University of Texas at Austin, will be the morning keynote speaker at 8:30 a.m. Roueche is considered a top expert on community colleges. “We all have the same charge – preparing our young people to be globally competitive. That is a huge responsibility and we will only be successful through our concerted collaboration,” said Barbara Zwadyk, chief curriculum and organizational development for Guilford County Schools. The event is open to business leaders as well as educators. “Concerned citizens and parents also are encouraged to attend,” said Jacqueline Greenlee, GTCC director of organizational development.



Teresa Loflin, community relations director of the High Point Museum, and Edith Brady, museum director, pose with one of the “High Point’s Furniture Heritage” exhibits at the museum. The museum won the Presidents Award for tourism events from the High Point Convention and Visitor’s Bureau.

“Have you heard the saying, ‘It takes a village to raise a child?’ ” Bowman said. “That’s how I feel about Bring It Home, High Point. It isn’t just me who can make this happen or the CVB. It’s everyone in the community.” The CVB’s annual meeting was held after the press conference where its President’s Award was presented. This year’s recipient was the High Point Museum for its “High Point’s Furniture Heritage” exhibit. Charlotte Young, CVB president, said the award is given to a hospitality industry partner that is not a hotel or motel but is “responsible for generating significant tourism activity through the recipient’s own initiatives.” The permanent exhibit examines the history of the relationship between the furniture industry and the people of High Point. | 888-3617

Missing High Point woman found in Greensboro BY PAT KIMBROUGH ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – Authorities on Tuesday said an elderly High Point woman missing for nearly two weeks was found alive and well. Ruby Elizabeth O’Connor, 82, was located in Greensboro on Tuesday morning, according to High Point police. She had been missing since Feb. 11, when High Point police officers responded to 200 Oak St. at 3:45 p.m. and were told by her daughter that O’Connor had gone missing that morning. The North Carolina Center for Missing Persons issued a Silver Alert for O’Connor on Monday night but canceled it Tuesday morning once she was

located. She also was removed from a national database that contains information about missing persons. Further information about her condition, her whereabouts since her disappearance or the circumstances of how she was located was not released. O’Connor left her home about 9:45 a.m. on Feb. 11. A cab picked her up at the Wachovia bank branch on N. Main Street around 10:40 a.m. and drove her to the bus depot in Greensboro, according to police. She was reportedly last seen there, and her whereabouts after that were apparently unknown until this week. Investigators said foul play was not suspected in her disappearance. O’Connor has wan-




dered away from the residence in the past and “has limited capabilities to manage on her own,” police said. In addition, police said it was possible O’Connor could be evasive about her identity and could attempt to avoid authorities. She was believed to have a North Carolina Identification Card in her possession at the time she went missing. Silver Alerts, which notify law enforcement agencies and media outlets about a missing individual, generally are issued for older residents thought to be suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, dementia or some other type of cognitive impairment. | 888-3531

McCrory campaign omitted 2 helicopter flights RALEIGH (AP) – Pat McCrory’s gubernatorial campaign failed to report two helicopter flights valued at $3,300 taken in the waning days of his unsuccessful bid. The manager for McCrory’s campaign said Tuesday the October 2008 flights were uncovered as the State Board of Elections wrote candidates for governor since 2004 asking for more information about their air travel. Manager Jack Hawke

said the campaign filed an amended report dated last week to report the flight expenses. He said one flight invoice never reached the campaign. There was never an invoice issued for the second flight. State Democratic Party executive director Andrew Whalen said McCrory’s refiling raises more questions beyond allegations he discussed at a news conference earlier Tuesday focusing on one of the flights.

ARCHDALE – Promoting the city of Archdale and reviewing a proposed minimum housing ordinance are among several topics the Archdale City Council will tackle during its twoday retreat this week at the Colonial Country Club in Thomasville. The retreat will begin Thursday night with discussion on promoting the City Council’s vision for Archdale – a topic that returns from last year’s retreat. The purpose of the discussion will be for council members to share ideas and brainstorm to create ways for Archdale to “brand” itself, market qualities the city has to offer and target companies that would be attracted to the city’s strengths.

City officials say Archdale has plenty of amenities to offer, including a low tax rate, a governing body dedicated to positive growth, access to two major interstates and a highway, and quality residential housing with room for expansion. The City Council is expected to discuss options of attracting industry, such as the city focusing more inhouse efforts or work more closely with the ArchdaleTrinity Chamber of Commerce. Another option for the City Council would be hiring a marketing firm to create a promotional campaign. On Friday, the council will review a minimum housing ordinance after two years of discussion and study over the issue. The council began discussing minimum housing at its retreat two years ago when members expressed concern about some of the aging housing units

in the city. A housing condition study conducted by city staff revealed that there are some houses within the city that are in substandard or dilapidated conditions. Under a proposed ordinance, staff will have the ability to require homes to meet certain minimum requirements for living conditions and require property owners to repair or demolish homes that do not meet the requirements of the ordinance. There are 10 substandard conditions outlined within the ordinance that would immediately qualify the dwelling as “unfit for human habitation,” such as interior walls that are severely leaning, floors or roofs unable to support loads, fire damage, and lack of proper electrical or plumbing facilities. | 888-3657

Forsyth commissioners vote to appeal ruling on prayer MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

WINSTON-SALEM – The Forsyth County Board of Commissioners voted 43 Monday night to appeal a federal judge’s decision to ban sectarian prayer before board meetings. As expected, board chairman Dave Plyler was the swing vote in a divide that went along party lines. Plyler and fellow Republican Debra Conrad, Richard Linville and Gloria Whisenhunt voted to appeal the prayer case to the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals. Opposing them were

Democrats Beaufort Bailey, Ted Kaplan and Walter Marshall. Plyler’s vote, at question to the last day, hinged on support that a group of citizens has pledged to defend the county’s prayer effort. That group, the N.C. Partnership for Religious Liberty, committed $300,000 over the weekend, counting $55,000 raised earlier. Plyler had said that he would support an appeal only if citizens promised to make sure it wouldn’t cost the county any money to do so. The leader of that group, the Rev. Steve Corts, said over the

weekend that $300,000 was enough to at least bring the appeal through the court of appeals. A conservative Christian legal group, the Alliance Defense Fund, has paid all the county’s legal costs and had promised to pay for the county’s appeal, even as far as to the U.S. Supreme Court. But the ADF would not pay the ACLU’s legal expenses in the event of a county loss. Citizens upset over references to Jesus in prayers sued the county in 2007 with the help of the ACLU and American United for Separation of Church and State.

‘In vino veritas’ reveals painful truth of marriage


ear Abby: The other day I asked my husband a question and told him to be honest. If given a choice between giving up wine or giving up sex with me, which would he choose? You guessed it. He said, “Giving up sex with you.” I think I knew the answer before I asked the question, but hearing it out loud devastated me. I know every woman wants to be No. 1 in her husband’s life. Am I wrong to feel so heartbroken? – Lost The Battle To Chardonnay Dear Lost The Battle: Not at all, particularly if you prefer sex to a fullbodied Cabernet. But now it’s time for a follow-up question: “Why?” If sex with you is less interesting to your mate than his vino, he may have an alcohol problem. Or the problem may lie in your bedroom. One thing is certain: When you asked your question, you “uncorked” the fact that there’s a serious problem in your marriage. And now you have an opportunity to do something about it. Dear Abby: My wife is constantly passing gas. She does not care where she is or who is around. I have worked in the trucking industry for almost 30 years and never ran across anyone as flatulent

as she is. She is young and attractive, but there is nothing less appealing ADVICE than feeling “frisky,” Dear getting into Abby bed and ■■■ hearing the trumpet sounds. I have recommended she see a doctor, but she laughs it off and says, “Everyone does it.” I can’t believe I’m the only one with this problem. I could really use some “sound” advice, Abby. – Blown Away in Alliance, Ohio Dear Blown Away: Everyone may do “it,” but perhaps not to the extent that your wife does. There are overthe-counter products that can lessen the problem, which may be related to her diet. However, if her flatulence persists, then I’m recommending you not let your wife “laugh off” the idea of consulting a physician, because her problem could be a symptom of something that needs to be checked out – and that’s no joke. Dear Abby: Our driveway is directly across from our neighbor’s dining room window. The only curtain open in

their entire house is this one. Since they always sit at this window, they can observe who pulls in and out, what groceries are brought in and how many times we leave. They make comments like, “I see you had pizza last night,” or, “What did you buy at ‘Such and Such’ store?” This has caused a strain on our relationship with them. I know they have a right to open whatever curtains they want in their own house, but what about the invasion of our privacy? – Peeved By The Peepers, Johnstown, Pa. Dear Peeved: Apparently what’s going on in your driveway is better than what’s on television. Because you can’t change your neighbors, you’re going to have to find the humor in this situation and change the way you react. They may be trying to make conversation because there’s nothing else going on in their lives. And their curiosity might turn out to be a blessing one day if someone tries to enter your home in your absence.

Students in both grades were asked in December to begin thinking of creative ways to earn change to help their counterparts in Africa. Third-graders wrote letters to the African students and included photographs of themselves. The students collected their change in new water bottles, which are also being shipped to Kenya for use by the children. The money will be used to purchase school supplies.

hen Rick Eaton was 18 years old, he knew what he wanted to be. He wanted to be a college graduate. So after high school graduation, he attended Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania on a partial football scholarship. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I went because it was the thing to do, the next logical step. But I had no passion for learning and no understanding of what college was all about,â&#x20AC;? Eaton said. One day, ABOVE he heard AND music that BEYOND changed his life. A guy Patty Jo down the Sawvel hall in his â&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  dorm introduced Eaton to jazz, fusion and virtuoso players. Eaton suddenly found his new major interest. He was determined to learn to play the guitar. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Playing the guitar was something I liked to work at. It showed me what I could do. After that, all I wanted to do at college was practice my guitar,â&#x20AC;? Eaton said. Eaton flunked out of college, but he now knew he wanted to study music. At 25, Eaton moved to Richmond and completed a year in music studies at Virginia Commonwealth University. Next, Eaton and his bride, Leslie Hopkins, moved to Winston-Salem. Eaton was accepted into the music program at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, wanting to be a middle-school chorus teacher. Once again, Eaton found himself with little understanding of the realities of his choice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because music is an elective course, I envisioned that my class would be full of kids who were highly motivated to make music and progress,â&#x20AC;? Eaton said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But when I did my student teaching under Tom Shelton, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best, I realized that half the kids didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be there. They were only there because they thought it was an easy class or because their friends were in the class.â&#x20AC;? So at age 30, in 1995, Eaton was a college graduate, but he had yet to figure out how to keep music central in his life. In 1998 he teamed with Ann and Gary Rogers to open The Band Company in Kernersville. Rogers repairs instrument while Eaton meets with school band directors and offers service for their program. In 2001, Eatonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life finally came into harmony. Ben Rhodes, a respected band director, invited Eaton to join his jazz band, Sunset Fourtet. Holding no illusion that he can quit his day job, Eaton, a father of three, finds that playing in a group balances his life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As life piles up on you,â&#x20AC;? Eaton said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;just one good rehearsal can blow it all away.â&#x20AC;?

Heart is only one cause of chest pain D

ear Dr. Donohue: I often have this strange chest pain. It’s usually on the left side. I feel my heart beating pretty fast at times, but it speeds up and slows down. Sometimes the pain is severe, but most of the time it is just annoying. I thought it might be poor blood circulation, anxiety or heart disease. When I go to the hospital, they check my heart and blood pressure, and they are normal. I exercise regularly and eat healthy. I am a 25-year-old male. Can you suggest anything? – A.J.



Chest pain puts doctors and patients on high alert. The doctor doesn’t want to overreact and make a well person feel he is sick, and he doesn’t want to underreact and have a dead patient. Heart conditions are the most dangerous cause of chest pain. You are quite young, and heart disease doesn’t usually strike at your age. Insufficient blood getting to the heart causes angina pain – pain that comes on with exertion and leaves with rest. This doesn’t sound like your pain. A heart attack doesn’t happen the way you describe your pain, either. I don’t know what the speed-up and slow-down of your heart means. When you went to the hospital, was an EKG taken? That would provide valuable information.














Other serious conditions causing heart pain are things like blood clots that HEALTH have traveled to Dr. Paul the lungs. Donohue Again, ■■■ what you describe isn’t typical of pulmonary embolus – clots to the lung. If movement of the chest brings on the pain or makes it worse, it could be musculoskeletal pain – pain originating from the chest muscles or from the ribs or backbones. This kind of pain almost always subsides on its own. I can’t be of much help to you. You have to establish yourself with a doctor who can follow you and can order tests to pinpoint the cause of your pain. You mention anxiety. That’s another cause of chest pain. Are you under a great deal of stress right now? Dear Dr. Donohue: I am a 49-year-old, single male. I have many medical problems, including Paget’s disease. In the past few years, I have been diagnosed with essential tremor. Why isn’t Inderal being marketed anymore? I tried propranolol, but my stomach couldn’t handle it. Can

you suggest anything over the counter? – T.H. Essential tremor, also called familial tremor, is the kind of shaking hands that make it difficult to bring a spoonful of soup to the mouth, write legibly or do any kind of meticulous work with the hands. Observers mistakenly infer that the affected person is nervous. That’s not the case. Inderal is no longer being made, I suppose because it’s not profitable to produce it with so many other less-expensive generic equivalents to Inderal on the market. The generic equivalent is propranolol. Perhaps the manufacturer of the propranolol you took has some ingredient in the drug that upsets your stomach. There are other manufacturers, and their filler ingredients differ. You might be able to tolerate one of those products. I don’t know of an overthe-counter medicine that can still the shakiness of essential tremor. Caffeine and other stimulants make it worse. Primidone (Mysoline) is a prescription medicine that does a good job of controlling essential tremor.

DR. DONOHUE regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible. Readers may write him or request an order form of available health newsletters at P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475

The RAW truth about EGGS



Uncooked, are they worth the risk? BY JIM ROMANOFF FOR THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


eanut butter recalls. Spinach scares. Contaminated meat. Is it any wonder Americans are jittery about their food? So much so that when The Associated Press recently ran a recipe for traditional spaghetti carbonara – complete with its only barely cooked egg – e-mails poured in. Had we forgotten the step in the recipe about cooking the egg? No. But it did make us wonder. With so many traditional recipes calling for uncooked egg – mayonnaise, Caesar salad, eggnog, carbonara, never mind the simple joy of dunking toast in soft-boiled eggs – what can we safely do with raw eggs? Simply put, raw eggs can carry salmonella, bacteria that can cause serious food poisoning, even death. But to be fair, any raw food can be contaminated. After all, salmonella is what triggered the massive peanut butter recall last year. The Food and Drug Administration is pretty clear on the matter, telling people eggs should be fully cooked until both the yolks and the whites are firm. They tell people not to eat or even taste any foods that may contain raw or undercooked eggs. Of course the risks are highest among the very young, the very elderly, and people who are pregnant or have a compromised immune system, says Catherine Donnelly, a professor and expert on the microbiology of food safety at the University of Vermont. Healthy adults may get sick from salmonella, but Donnelly says they are unlikely to die. Still, not dying is a pretty low bar to set for dinner. Is it worth it? Charles Reeves, chef and owner of Penny Cluse Cafe, a restaurant in Burlington, Vt., known for its from-scratch breakfasts and lunches, certainly thinks so. “You can’t own a restaurant and call yourself a chef if you’re using mayonnaise out of a bottle,” he says. “It’s just too easy to make it better yourself.” Though his customers’ safety is a primary concern, Reeves doesn’t think twice about using raw eggs, including serving them over easy and sunny side up. “You just always have to use absolutely fresh eggs that come from a reputable source,” he says. But Todd Pritchard, a food scientist at the University of Vermont, says farm-fresh doesn’t necessarily mean bacteria-free. “Bacteria are blind,” he says. “They don’t see whether the eggs come from a local farmer or are free-range or organic.” Much depends on how the eggs and chickens have been handled, says Pritchard. An unhealthy chicken can have salmonella in its reproductive tract and the bacteria can end up on the shell or even inside the egg. Luckily, says Donnelly, the egg industry got serious during the ’90s about salmonella. Working closely with federal agriculture officials, major egg producers removed salmonella-infected hens from the laying population. Meanwhile, probiotics (healthy bacteria) were added to the feed to help make chickens more resistant to salmonella. Still, Pritchard says an egg also can be contaminated by an external source in the barnyard or during the handling and shipping, including during storage or preparation at a restaurant. That’s part of the reason California and New Jersey during the ’90s banned raw and undercooked eggs from restaurants. But all of the focus on food service frustrates Nancy Oakes, a James Beard award-winning chef and owner of San Francisco’s Boulevard Restaurant. She calls the raw egg a “simply magical food.” At Boulevard, Oakes creates aiolis with raw egg yolk, and accompanies her Caesar salad with a soft-cooked egg on the side. She says safety efforts focus too much on the kitchen,


While many food experts maintain that eggs need to be fully cooked to be safe, professional chefs and home cooks safely use raw eggs as ingredients in a variety of recipes daily.

Penny Cluse Cafe House Mayonnaise BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Charles Reeves, chef and owner of Penny Cluse Cafe in Burlington, Vt., uses this mayonnaise on sandwiches. He also uses raw eggs in the base for sauces and dressings. To turn this recipe into an aioli, stir in 1/2 cup of minced roasted garlic. Start to finish: 5 minutes Makes 3 cups 6 tablespoons lemon juice 1 large egg

and not enough on the farms where the eggs are produced. “It just seems that (the regulators) spend their entire lives trying to make safety happen in the frying pan rather than at the farm gate or in the transportation systems where a lot of the problems originate,” she said. And chefs like Gabrielle Hamilton, owner of Prune restaurant in New York, has no problem with raw and undercooked eggs as long as customers are aware of what they are ordering. “I use them like crazy, for breakfast, lunch and dinner,” said Hamilton, who added that raw or runny yolks are indispensable for adding richness, as well as for balancing out spicy or acidic foods. According to the American Egg Board, the risk of an egg being contaminated with salmonella is only around 1 in 20,000. At this rate, an average consumer would encounter a contaminated egg once in 84 years. Pritchard says that for an individual, assessing the risks of consuming raw eggs isn’t so

1 large egg yolk 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper 2 1/2 cups canola oil In a food processor or blender, combine the lemon juice, whole egg, egg yolk, mustard, salt and white pepper. Process until blended, about 10 seconds. With the processor or blender running, slowly drizzle in the canola oil and process until emulsified, about 45 seconds. Refrigerate in a covered container for up to 5 days.

cut and dry. While it’s true that the likelihood of being sickened by an egg is low, it doesn’t matter, he points out, if you’re the one who gets sick. “It really all depends,” says Pritchard, “on the immune status of the individual and the source of the egg.” So what’s an egg eater to do? For adult home cooks in good health, the minute risk of being sickened may be worth the joy of soft-boiled eggs or homemade mayo. Ditto when dining out. Still not so sure? Pasteurized egg products are available. Whites are common, but yolks are hard to find. But there’s a catch. Many of these products are made mostly from egg whites, which don’t emulsify or thicken well, so they won’t work well in most dishes that call for raw whole eggs or egg yolks. There are pasteurized whole eggs that are heated in the shell in a low-heat water bath that neutralizes bacteria, but stops short of cooking the egg, but these can be hard to find.

A blast from your past will be entertaining. A career change with an unusual twist will bring you closer to a life long goal. ★★★ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Giving false hope or pretenses will not go over well when you don’t follow through.

Cy the Cynic was dating a girl who insisted he escort her to the ballet. “How was it?” I asked. “Didn’t enjoy it,” Cy said. “I couldn’t even tell who won.” There was no doubt about who won in today’s deal. Cy was declarer at 6NT. He took the ace of diamonds, led a club to the king and let the ten ride. West produced the queen and shifted to a spade, putting the Cynic to an awkward guess. Cy had 11 tricks and could get one more if the spade finesse won, if hearts broke 3-3 or if there was a squeeze. He finessed in spades -- and went down. How would you play 6NT? ALL CHANCES Cy can arrange to try all his chances. He could finesse in spades at the second trick. If the finesse lost and East returned a diamond, Cy could cash his spade tricks and test the hearts. If the hearts didn’t break, he could try to find the queen of clubs. Cy could also finesse in clubs through West at Trick Two. If that finesse lost, Cy could later test the hearts and then finesse in spades if necessary.

DAILY QUESTION You hold: S 10 8 H K 6 5 2 D A Q C A J 9 8 4. The dealer, at your left, opens one diamond. Your partner doubles, and the next player passes. What do you say? ANSWER: Partner promises opening values or more with support for the unbid suits, hence you must commit to game. One option is to cue-bid two diamonds to create a forcing auction and ask partner to bid a suit. Since I’d rather be declarer to protect the AQ of diamonds, I’d simply jump to 3NT. South dealer N-S vulnerable

ONE STAR: It’s best to avoid conflicts; work behind the scenes or read a good book. Two stars: You can accomplish but don’t rely on others for help. Three stars: If you focus, you will reach your goals. Four stars: You can pretty much do as you please, a good time to start new projects. Five stars: Nothing can stop you now. Go for the gold.

THEY’RE SORRY: Toyota apologizes for safety issues. 5D


Heather Richardson proved to herself and the world that she belongs in the upper echelons of women’s speedskating. Her three events over at the Vancouver Olympics, Richardson had no choice but to get back to work, making sure she stays there. “It’s a little weird,” Richardson admitted by phone Tuesday between training sessions. “We’re still doing our regular thing because we still have two more World Cups this year. It’s something we have to do.” Granted, it won’t be all business now for the 20-year-old High Point Central graduate. Having placed sixth in the 500 meters, ninth in the 1,000 and 16th in the 1,500 in the first

week of the Games, she now hopes to take in a few sights in and around Vancouver as well as catch some of her fellow Olympians in action. The break – however brief – will be a welcome one. Team Richardson USA exits March 1, and the US Speedskating team will have all of one day back home in Salt Lake City before traveling to the sixth and seventh World Cup competitions of the season. On March 6-7, Richardson will race in Erfurt, Germany, then fly over to Heerenveen, Netherlands, for a few training days and the World Cup finale. The end of her whirlwind year comes March 18, when she’s expecting to return home and

be able to stay in High Point for a month. After that, it’s back to Salt Lake for a resumption of training for the next World Cup season and prepping for bigger and better things at the 2014 Sochi Games in Russia. If there was any question about Richardson’s life getting less hectic than it was in qualifying for Vancouver, well – proving at your first Olympics that you’ve got what it takes to bring home medals down the road has a way of redefining normal. “I’m almost positive it’s going to be just as crazy,” Richardson said. “I now know I can do this, so I’m going to be training just as hard the next three years so I can be just as good for 2014 hopefully.” | 888-3526

Fast start propels Trojans




CHAPEL HILL – North Carolina will be down one Wear and possibly two tonight when the Tar Heels host Florida State at 7. Freshman forward David Wear is out indefinitely with a sore hip, while twin brother Travis could see his first action since spraining his left ankle in practice on Feb. 9.


onight’s Florida State at North Carolina men’s basketball game features a team seeking its 20th win of the season against a squad desperately trying to avoid falling to .500 overall and 3-10 in ACC play. That doesn’t sound strange – until you realize the Seminoles sport the 19-7 overall record and 7-5 conference mark, while the Tar Heels are floundering at 14-13 overall and 3-9 in the conference. Those circumstances are downright stunning. Consider these facts. The Tar Heels have

Julius Peppers grew up in North Carolina, starred in college in the state and made five Pro Bowls in eight years with the Carolina Panthers. Now, Peppers is almost certainly leaving home. General manager Marty Hurney announced Tuesday the Panthers won’t place the restrictive franchise tag on the team’s career sacks leader. The 30-year-old Peppers will become an unrestricted free agent.



Let the playoffs begin! Westchester Country Day School’s Davis Tucker battles Cary Christian’s Lindsey Johnson (24) and Christopher Thomas for possession during Tuesday’s N.C. Independent Schools Athletic Association 2A first-round playoff game in High Point. Tucker finished with nine points as the top-seeded Wildcats grabbed a 74-48 win. See prep roundup on 3D.

Elon’s late onslaught dooms HPU SPECIAL TO THE ENTERPRISE

HIGH POINT – The High Point University baseball team gave up seven runs in the final two innings as the Panthers fell to Elon 8-3 on Tuesday at Williard Stadium. Junior Brian Jones made the start for HPU, pitching five

scoreless innings. He didn’t factor in to the decision. John Brebbia earned the win for Elon and Mikel Rodenberg got the loss. Rodenberg took the ball in the eighth inning with no outs and two runners on. He struck out the first batter, but Alex Swim singled up the middle, scoring one run. Matt Hinson

came in to pinch hit for Elon and homered to give the Phoenix the 5-3 lead. Elon tacked on three runs in the ninth. The Panthers (1-2) host Fairleigh Dickinson this weekend for a three game series, beginning Friday at 4 p.m. Former Ledford star Murray White IV finished 2-for-4 for HPU.






HIGH POINT – For 28 minutes, Providence Day played dead even with Wesleyan Christian Academy in their NCISAA 3A playoff opener Tuesday in High Point. The Trojans’ four-minute flourish to open the game made all the difference. Wesleyan got 3-pointers from three different players en route to an 11-0 lead, and the Trojans held off every charge for a 55-45 win. Wesleyan, the No. 8 seed, will face top seed Christ School at Greensboro Day School at 4 p.m. Thursday. Leek Leek paced the Trojans (19-12) with 13 points, and Will Coble and Deng Leek added 12 points apiece. The fast start, with Coble, Mitch Purgason and Drew Crenshaw connecting from beyond the arc, was a welcome sight. “It was big,” Wesleyan coach Keith Gatlin said. “We haven’t been hitting shots for the past month, so for the guys to make shots and open up the inside was really big for us.” Providence Day fought back, and the Chargers’ 10-2 run in the second quarter trimmed Wesleyan’s lead to 21-16. But Leek Leek scored on a baseline drive, then nailed a 3 at the buzzer to give the Trojans a 26-16 cushion at the half. The Chargers mounted several rallies in the second half, but they got no closer than seven the rest of the way. Center Deng Leek only tallied seven points, but he limited Providence Day’s offense by clogging up the middle and controlling the boards. “He can change the game,” Gatlin said. “If he stays big on defense, he can really make a difference.” The Chargers finished 8-21. Point guard Connor Sullivan scored a game-high 16 points, and Kevin Hickson added 13, including two impressive two-handed dunks.


posted only three losing seasons since joining the ACC in 1954. Carolina went 10-11 overall in 1955, 8-9 in ‘62 and 8-20 in 2002. In ACC action, the Tar Heels own just four sub-.500 records: 5-6 in ‘54, 6-8 in ‘64, 4-12 in ‘02 and 6-10 in ‘03. These are rarely charted waters in Chapel Hill. As for the Seminoles, they rarely sail this high in the ACC waters this late in the season. FSU joined the ACC prior to the 1992 season. During that time, the Seminoles

have managed only four winning records in conference play: 11-5 in ‘92, 12-4 in ‘93, 9-7 in ‘06 and 10-6 last season. The Seminoles sport nine winning records overall in 18 ACC seasons. That will become 10 out of 19 when this season concludes. This brief history refresher reminds us just how consistently strong the Tar Heels have been in the ACC. It also reveals how tough it can be for non-Big Four schools to gain a foothold in the ACC climb.

ESPN suspends Kornheiser for comments about Storm BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) — ESPN has suspended host Tony Kornheiser from his television talk show “Pardon the Interruption” for two weeks for comments he made on the radio last week about SportsCenter anchor Hannah Storm’s clothing. Kornheiser announced the suspension on his Washington D.C. radio show Tuesday morning, calling his remarks about Storm intemperate and stupid. “As the result of this, I have been sent to the sidelines of PTI for a while,” Kornheiser said. ESPN spokesman Josh Krulewitz, while confirming the suspension, declined to say when Kornheiser would be back on the show. He said the network would likely have a statement later Tuesday. Kornheiser described an outfit Storm was wearing at ESPN last week as “horrifying,” saying her shirt was too tight and looked “like she has sausage casing wrapping around her upper body.” Kornheiser said he had called Storm to personally apologize for the remarks. “If you put a live microphone in front of somebody, eventually that person will say something wrong,” Kornheiser said on his show Tuesday. “This was one of the times I said something wrong.”

Eagles release Westbrook after 8 seasons



Twenty area teams qualified for the N.C. High School Athletic Association boys and girls basketball playoffs, which continue with sectional tournament games today and Friday. The four winners in the eight classifications of Friday night’s sectional title games advance to the West regionals, with games slated next Tuesday through Saturday at the Greensboro Coliseum and UNC Greensboro. The private school brackets see quarterfinal games played Thursday, semifinals Friday and championship tilts Saturday of this week. On Thursday, Wesleyan Christian Academy (girls bracket) and Westchester Country Day School (boys) will serve as hosts of the 2A tournament, while WCA will play host to all four semifinal games Friday. The championships will be played at 2 and 4 p.m. at Forsyth Country Day. Should the Wesleyan boys advance in the 3A bracket, they would play at Greensboro Day on Thursday and Friday, with the title games slated for FCD at 6 and 8 p.m. Saturday.


PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Brian Westbrook was released Tuesday by the Philadelphia Eagles, ending an often-dynamic eight-year run that was marred by various injuries. A former All-Pro, the 5-foot-10 Westbrook led the league in yards from scrimmage in 2007 with 2,104. He rushed for 1,333 yards and accounted for 12 touchdowns that season. But he spent much of last season on the sidelines, missing eight games with a pair of concussions and an ankle injury. Westbrook had only two touchdowns in 2009. He was due $7.25 million next season. LeSean McCoy, who rushed for 637 yards with four touchdowns in 16 games as a rookie, will become Philadelphia’s No. 1 running back.

Duke hires Lubick as assistant coach DURHAM (AP) — Duke coach David Cutcliffe has added Matt Lubick to his staff to fill a vacancy. Lubick will serve as the Blue Devils’ receivers coach, as well as its recruiting and passing-game coordinator. Lubick had spent the past three seasons at Arizona State, where he was an assistant head coach. Lubick replaces Scottie Montgomery, who left for a coaching job with the NFL’s Pittsburgh Steelers.

Kramerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gaffe derails gold-medal bid THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

VANCOUVER, British Columbia â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Bode Miller made the kind of mistake that happens in skiing, especially for a risk-taker like him. The gaffe made by Dutch speedskater Sven Kramer? Unbelievable. Kramer went through the grueling 10,000-meter race on a seeming record pace but was disqualified for not switching lanes while coming out of a turn nearly two-thirds into the race. Kramer went into the turn on the inside and was supposed to move to the outside lane for the next lap. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d already moved over when Dutch coach Gerard Kemkers animatedly motioned for him to shift to the inside lane. Kramer seemed to hold off at first, then gave in. Kemkers buried his head in his hands when he realized what happened. Kramer ended up skating the rest of the race in the same line as the other skater in his pair, but was so far ahead he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have known anything was amiss. The only hint was when Kramer saw his girlfriend in the stands and her head was buried in her hands. Kramer crossed the line with a big smile, believing he had another gold medal and Olympic record for his staggering list of feats: winner of the last three world championships at 5,000 and 10,000 meters; the world record-holder at both distances; and having already won gold and set an Olympic record in the 5,000 at this Olympics. Then Kemkers broke the news. Kramer flung his glasses, then stomped the heel of his blade into the ice. Just like that, Lee Seunghoon of South Korea had the gold and Kramer moved into Olympic infamy, like the U.S. shooter who blew a sure gold medal by shooting at the wrong target during the 2004 Athens Olympics. Millerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mistake wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t nearly as colossal.

Toyota apologizes for safety issues WASHINGTON (AP) – The president of Toyota’s U.S. operations insisted Tuesday that electronic problems did not contribute to sudden acceleration of its cars, drawing sharp criticism from lawmakers who said such a possibility should not be ruled out. Toyota’s James Lentz repeated Toyota’s position that stuck gas pedals in some of the company’s most popular models were caused by one of two problems – misplaced floor mats and sticking accelerator pedals. Meanwhile, Toyota President Akio Toyoda, who will testify before a separate panel today, said he took “full responsibility”

for the uncertainty felt by Toyota owners and offered his condolences to a San Diego, Calif., family who were killed in late August, reigniting interest in the problems. “I will do everything in my power to ensure that such a tragedy never happens again,” Toyoda said in prepared testimony for Wednesday’s hearing to the House Government Oversight Committee. “My name is on every car. You have my personal commitment that Toyota will work vigorously and unceasingly to restore the trust of our customers,” Toyoda said. Three congressional panels are investigating

Toyota’s problems. The hearings are important because Toyota has recalled more than 8 million vehicles worldwide – more than 6 million in the United States – since last fall because of sudden acceleration problems in multiple models and braking issues in the Prius hybrid. It is also investigating steering concerns in Corollas. People with Toyotas have complained of their vehicles speeding out of control in their efforts to slow down, sometimes resulting in deadly crashes. The government has received complaints of 34 deaths linked to sudden acceleration of Toyota vehicles since 2000. “We are confident that


no problems exist with the electric throttle control system in our vehicles,” Lentz said in prepared testimony to the House Energy and Commerce’s investigative subcommittee. Lentz cited “fail-safe mechanisms” in the cars were designed to shut off or reduce engine power “in the event of a system failure.” But Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif., chairman of the full Energy and Commerce Committee, scoffed at Toyota’s insistence that electronics were not a possible cause and said the company should have investigated more thoroughly. Waxman also took the government to task for not doing enough.



Target profit grows by 53.7 percent NEW YORK – Lean inventory and strongerthan-expected holiday sales helped Target Corp.’s fourth-quarter profit soar 53.7 percent, and the company said it expects to pick up market share this year as it rolls out a new store format that includes a bigger grocery section. The nation’s secondlargest discounter said Tuesday it earned $936 million, or $1.24 per share, in the quarter ended Jan. 30.

Home Depot enjoys strong quarter NEW YORK – Cost cutting and stronger sales of paint, flooring and plumbing pushed Home Depot Inc. to a fiscal fourthquarter profit, the largest U.S. home-improvement retailer said Tuesday. The improvements led Home Depot to boost its quarterly dividend for the first time since 2006 and give a 2010 profit forecast above analysts’ expectations. Consumers cut back on home-improvement projects during the recession and housing slump, but conditions have slowly started to improve, causing more to take on big projects.

Oil drops below $80 a barrel NEW YORK – Oil and other energy prices sank Tuesday after job worries sent a monthly measurement of consumer confidence sharply lower. Benchmark crude for April delivery lost $1.58 at $78.73 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. In London, Brent crude fell $1.32 at $77.29 on the ICE futures exchange. Oil prices had been rising for more than two weeks as a steady drumbeat of reports suggested that manufacturing, home building and other pillars of the American economy were improving.

Confidence falls sharply NEW YORK (AP) – Americans’ outlook on the economy went into relapse in February. Rising job worries sent a key barometer of confidence to its lowest point in 10 months, raising concerns about the economic recovery. The Conference Board said Tuesday its Consumer Confidence Index fell almost 11 points to 46 in February, down from a revised 56.5 in January. Analysts were expecting only a slight decrease to 55. It was the lowest level since the index recorded a 40.8 reading in April 2009.

The increasing pessimism, which erased three months of improvement, is a big blow to hopes that consumer spending will power an economic recovery. Economists watch the confidence numbers closely because consumer spending accounts for about 70 percent of U.S. economic activity. The February reading is a long way from what’s considered healthy: A reading above 90 means the economy is on solid footing. Above 100 signals strong growth. While economists said

that heavy snowstorms in many areas of the country that shut down businesses dampened confidence, many believe that the report confirms that consumers aren’t feeling the nascent economic recovery. “More than six months after the recovery started, consumer confidence is still close to a record low,” said Paul Ashworth, senior U.S. economist at Capital Economics Ltd. “Without a sustained acceleration in consumption growth, this recovery will eventually fade.”

Home prices rise slightly MIAMI (AP) – Home prices edged up in December, the seventh straight monthly gain and another sign the housing market continues its bumpy recovery. The trend is important to the nation’s economic recovery. For most Americans, their home is their largest asset, so as values climb homeowners feel wealthier and more comfortable spending. And, for homeowners who currently owe more on their mortgages than their properties are worth, rising prices will rebuild equity.

The Standard & Poor’s/Case-Shiller 20city home price index released Tuesday rose 0.3 percent from November to December, to a seasonally adjusted reading of 145.87. The index was off about 3 percent from December last year, nearly matching analysts’ estimates. The index is now up more than 3 percent from its bottom in May, but still 30 percent below its May 2006 peak. Home sales data for January, out later this week, are also expected to show gains over year-

end levels as buyers took advantage of low interest rates and temporary tax credits. Anna Piretti, an economist at BNP Paribas, said the price increases are “further evidence that conditions in the house market continue to stabilize.” “While conditions remain challenging in Florida, house price conditions appear to be improving in the Western states, with gains recorded in California, Nevada and Arizona,” Piretti wrote in a research report.

Stocks retreat on consumer report NEW YORK (AP) — The stock market fell sharply Tuesday after a surprising drop in consumer confidence reminded investors of the fragility of the economic recovery. The Dow Jones industrials fell 100 points. Interest rates also fell in the bond market as investors moved money out of stocks and into the safety of Treasurys. The Conference Board said its consumer confidence index fell to 46 in February from 56.5 last month. That was well below the forecast of economists polled by Thomson Reuters. They expected a reading of 55. Not only did the index fall sharply, it is far from

indicating strength in the economy. A reading above 90 means the economy is on solid footing. Consumers are vital to a strong, sustained economic recovery because their spending accounts for more than two-thirds of all economic activity. The confidence numbers came as investors were already rethinking the more optimistic assessment they had of the economy last week. Stocks had rallied for four straight days on upbeat earnings news, including some from retailers, and on improving housing and manufacturing numbers. That rally has ended this week in response to a growing pile of disap-

pointing consumer news, including retail earnings reports. While Home Depot Inc., Sears Holdings Corp., Macy’s Inc. and Target Corp. all reported betterthan-expected earnings Tuesday, the companies indicated that sales growth is lagging. That’s a sign that consumers are still too hesitant about the economy and their own job security to spend freely. The Dow fell 100.97, or 1 percent, to 10,292.41 after being up around 19 before the consumer confidence index was released. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index dropped 13.41, or 1.2 percent, to 1,094.60, while the Nasdaq composite index fell 28.59, or 1.3 percent, to 2,213.44.

Wall Street bonuses rise 17 percent ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Wall Street bonuses were up 17 percent to over $20 billion in 2009, the year taxpayers bailed out the financial sector after its meltdown, New York state Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli said Tuesday. Total compensation at the largest securities firms grew beyond that figure


and profits could surpass what he calls an unprecedented $55 billion last year, DiNapoli said. That’s nearly three times Wall Street’s record increase, a rate of growth that is boosted in part by the record losses in 2008 of nearly $43 billion, the Democrat said. “Wall Street is vital to New York’s economy, and

the dollars generated by the industry help the state’s bottom line,” said DiNapoli. “But for most Americans, these huge bonuses are a bitter pill and hard to comprehend. ... Taxpayers bailed them out, and now they’re back making money while many New York families are still struggling to make ends meet.”


In this Jan. 25 file photo, the Celebrity Mercury cruise liner makes a port call in Charleston, S.C.

350 sick ship passengers respond to treatment CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) – A cruise line says about 350 people are responding well to medicine after getting sick on a cruise to the Caribbean that departed from South Carolina. Celebrity Cruise spokeswoman Cynthia Martinez said Tuesday that 326 of the more than 1,800 passengers on the Celebrity Mercury began complaining Sunday of upset stomachs, vomiting and diarrhea. Martinez says 27 of the nearly 850

crew members also reported symptoms. The ship left Charleston on Feb. 15. Martinez says the crew is conducting “enhanced cleaning” to prevent the spread of the illness. An extra doctor and two nurses came aboard in St. Kitts in the British Virgin Islands and will sail to Charleston, arriving Friday. It’s not clear what pathogen was involved, but samples were being dropped off in Puerto Rico for testing.

California lawmakers outraged by insurer’s rate hikes SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) – California lawmakers on Tuesday said they were astonished by an attempt by Anthem Blue Cross to boost individual insurance premiums by as much as 39 percent at a time when policyholders are struggling to afford health coverage. The Assembly Health Committee opened a hearing intended to examine the proposal by California’s largest for-

profit health insurer. The increase is scheduled to take effect May 1 and would affect roughly 700,000 individual policyholders in the state. The hearing came amid a heated national debate over health care reform and one day before a congressional committee is scheduled to question Anthem’s parent company, WellPoint Inc. “How are Californians supposed to afford health

insurance with these rate increases?” Democratic Assemblyman Dave Jones of Sacramento asked while opening the hearing. “What level of profit is enough?” Jones, who chairs the committee, said the state cannot wait for the federal government to act. California has a responsibility to protect California consumers and businesses from “outrageous rate increases,” he said.
