HIGH POINT – Snow has taken a liking to the Triad this year. The half-inch of snow mixed with rain that fell Wednesday added to an already above-average snowfall for the area. According to the National Weather Service, the Triad has seen about 13.6 inches of snowfall this year, almost seven inches more than a normal winter. The good news about Wednesday’s snow is that most of it melted before much damage was done,

said Brandon Locklear, meteorologist with NWS. “We’re coming out of weather that was sunny and in the mid-60s last weekend, so pavement and concrete have been able to absorb some of that heat,” he said. “It’s almost like the perfect snow that you can just sit and watch without much worry. But (Thursday) morning may be a little tricky getting to work.” Locklear said temperatures will drop to the mid-20s this morning, allowing for any leftover precipitation from Wednesday to freeze on the roads, causing patches of black ice.

Chris Thompson, High Point’s public services director, said city crews aren’t salting roads since only one to two inches were expected Wednesday. He said crews were up early this morning salting bridges before rush hour in case patches of black ice had occurred. Today’s forecast calls for wind gusts up to 30 mph, with temperatures struggling to get out of the lower 30s. Colder conditions are expected to linger throughout the weekend and into next week with highs reaching the low 40s, Locklear

said, noting that the Triad is still below its average February temperatures that are usually in the mid-50s. And it looks like next week could bring another snowstorm worth worrying about, he said. “Several of our weather models are showing a snowstorm that affects the deep South next week,” he said. “Many things could change until then, so for now we’re just watching it. It does look like the next week will be plenty cold enough (for the storm.)” | 888-3617

Board to consider naming gym for Raybon BY DAVID NIVENS ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

GUILFORD COUNTY – School district officials will consider a request tonight to name the auxiliary gymnasium at Ragsdale High School for retired veteran coach Mike Raybon. Raybon, 68, spent 43 years with Guilford County Schools, 34 of them at Ragsdale where he became one of the state’s most influential figures in high school wrestling. School officials and Tiger fans surprised Raybon with the nomination earlier in the school year during a celebration of the school’s 50th anniversary. The nomination letter from the school booster club credits Raybon with “walking the extra mile, be it for school, community or state needs.” “His greatest skill is to encourage others to be the best they can be and to offer the support that helps them to do that. He has demonstrated this through his coaching, his mentoring of countless coaches, teachers, and athletic directors, and his leadership in the community,” according to the letter. Raybon was one of the leaders who consolidated the State Wrestling Tournament to one site with competitions in each classification, making the tournament one of the largest in the Southeast. The school board also will hear an update on staff improvement plans for 10 low-

Davidson County to conduct jail study BY DARRICK IGNASIAK ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

DAVIDSON COUNTY – Davidson County officials will hire an architect to take a closer look to see if the county’s current jail and courthouse complex has more room to expand, despite opposition from Sheriff David Grice. This week, the Davidson County Board of Commissioners approved a contract for Charlotte-

based Ware Bonsall Architects to perform a master plan for the existing courthouse and jail site in downtown Lexington. The master plan, which will cost the county $57,376, will determine the feasibility of accommodating the projected needs of the court, sheriff’s office and jail, along with required parking on or adjacent to the existing courthouse and jail site in downtown Lexington. Architects also will identify proj-

amongst the jail committee that we need to take a more serious look at the downtown property to see if we can go up, out or what we can do to the jail. That’s why the study is going to be more thorough.” Grice, meanwhile, said he had voiced his opinion several times concerning the topic of moving the sheriff’s office and jail away from its current location. “I don’t think there is enough space,” he said. “I think when you consider the costs for purchasing

property and moving property ... we are still going to end up with a situation where in the future we are not going to have enough room to expand on down the road.” Grice supports the county obtaining “enough land” for a new jail and sheriff’s office, so the county can expand there for “60 years down the road,” he said. Grice said he is “vehemently” opposed to “going up” for a jail because it would be hard to evacuate if there was a fire, among several other reasons. “We

don’t have to build it all at one time,” he said. “We can build what we need, but we’ve got the space to expand.” Davidson County officials had been looking for a new jail because its population had gone well above its capacity of 298 inmates in recent years, with an average jail population of 388 in July 2008. County officials now say that problem doesn’t exist with the jail population averaging around 210 inmates. | 888-3657

Turtle advocates sue NC officials over gill net use RALEIGH (AP) – Finding balance between commercial fishermen making a living and imperiled sea turtles protected in North Carolina coastal waters is heading to the federal courts now that a turtle rescue center has sued to require tougher restrictions on the use of popular vertical nets. The issue in the lawsuit filed this week in U.S. District Court in eastern North Carolina surrounds the use of gill nets, used by coastal watermen to catch southern flounder, red drum and black drum. The nets are suspended in the water using weights and buoys. Fish entering

a mesh hole can’t pull out due to their protruding gills. But they can entangle sea turtles, too, and as air breathers they drown if they can’t get away. All five species of sea turtles in North Carolina coastal waters are protected by the U.S. Endangered Species Act. Four are considered endangered and the loggerhead turtle is deemed “threatened,� with the possibility of becoming more shielded. The loggerhead’s total population could be less than 20 percent of the 1998 population by 2017, according to the lawsuit. The Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Center at Top-

sail Island alleges state marine fisheries officials haven’t complied with federal restrictions on gill net permits for shallow waters in the Pamlico Sound where large number of sea turtles have been caught. For example, there haven’t been enough observers on boats in those waters to monitor turtle catches, the lawsuit filed Tuesday said. Fishermen in the permitted waters aren’t selfreporting either when they collect a turtle, said Michelle Nowlin, an attorney for the Duke Environmental Law and Policy Clinic, which is representing the Beasley Center.

4 Gitmo detainees arrive in Albania, Spain WASHINGTON – Three Guantanamo Bay detainees have been transferred to Albania and another to Spain as the Obama administration reduces the number of prisoners at the U.S. military prison as part of a plan to eventually close the facility in Cuba. The Justice Department says the three detainees sent to Albania were Saleh Bin Hadi Asasi, a native of Tunisia; Sharif Fati Ali al Mishad, a native of Egypt; and Abdul Rauf Omar Mohammad Abu al Qusin, a native of Libya. The identity of the detainee sent to Spain was withheld at Spain’s request for security and privacy reasons.

Wounded Afghan civilians flee combat zone LASHKAR GAH, Afghanistan – Taxis turned into ambulances to ferry wounded civilians out of the combat zone in southern Afghanistan, but one man’s long trip to a hospital began with a two-hour wheelbarrow ride.

Cuban president regrets dissident’s death HAVANA – Cuban President Raul Castro issued an unprecedented statement of regret Wednesday over the death of a jailed dissident after a lengthy hunger strike that has sparked condemnation in Washington and in European capitals. “We took him to Cuba’s best hospitals, and he died. We very much regret it,� Castro said during a joint appearance with Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva.

Power restored to some quake victims in Haiti PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) – Six weeks after a catastrophic earthquake flattened downtown Port-au-Prince, power has returned to nearly half the city’s neighborhoods. Most, however, are in the hilly southern suburbs, which look down at night on the miles of near blackness where most of the quake-rendered homeless abide in teeming tent cities. Even before the Jan. 12 quake, electrical service in Haiti meant an average of 10 hours of power a day delivered by a rickety grid to just a quarter of the population – not even half of them paying customers.

NATO restricts night raids KABUL (AP) – American troops knocked on the door, and before the Afghan family could find the key to let them in, the soldiers broke it down. There was no time to take women in the home to another place, said 77year-old Mohammad Nabi. And that’s what troubled the retired school teacher most about the intrusion in the southern town of Marjah. “If they ask us to take

our women and daughters in another place and then they do the search, we have no problems,� Nabi told an Associated Press reporter. “We will cooperate with them. But they just enter the house and start searching and they don’t care who is there.� A new directive, confirmed Wednesday by Gen. Stanley McChrystal, aims to limit such nighttime raids on civilians.

OAXACA, Mexico – Gunmen stormed a rural town in southern Mexico and killed 13 people, while the U.S. government warned Americans against traveling to cities in a northern border state where shootouts have left slain 19 people over three days. Hooded assailants in several cars killed nine police officers at a checkpoint in San Vicente Camalote, a town in southern Oaxaca state, state deputy attorney general Netolin Chavez said Wednesday. The gunmen then burst into the ranch of Alfonso Maciel, killing him and his three sons, one of whom was a minor, Chavez said. He said investigators believe the attack Tuesday night was related to drugs.

ISLAMABAD (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A top Taliban leader picked up in Pakistan as part of a recent crackdown on insurgents will be handed over to Afghanistan, an Afghan government official said Wednesday. Islamabad said, however, that it had received no formal request to turn him over and that he could be tried first in Pakistan. Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar is one of at least three Afghan Taliban commanders who have been captured in recent weeks in Pakistan, where militants have also sustained blows from suspected U.S. missile strikes, including four killed Wednesday in an al-Qaida and Taliban stronghold in northwest Pakistan, intelligence officials said. Pakistan has agreed to transfer Baradar to Afghan custody, according to Zemeri Bashary, a spokesman for Afghan Interior Minister Hanif Atmar, who was in Islamabad meeting with FBI and Pakistani officials. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pakistan has agreed to hand Mullah Baradar over, but there is going to be consultations with judicial authorities,â&#x20AC;? he said. Pakistani Interior Minister Rehman Malik said Islamabad was expecting a formal request from the Afghan government to hand over Baradar.

Jobs bill adds tax breaks for new-hires WASHINGTON (AP) – Senate Democrats delivered the first of several promised election-year jobs bills Wednesday, passing a measure blending tax breaks for companies that hire unemployed workers with highway funding eagerly sought

ditional measures to create jobs, promising help for small businesses having trouble getting loans, aid for cash-strapped state governments, and subsidies for people who make their homes more energy efficient. But budget deficits are a worry.

But pressure is on to pass it anyway to score a badly needed win for President Barack Obama and a Democratic Party that’s dropped badly in opinion polls and faces major losses in midterm elections. Democrats promise ad-

Democrats go on attack against health insurers WASHINGTON (AP) – The House voted overwhelmingly Wednesday to repeal the health insurance industry’s exemption from federal antitrust oversight, giving Democrats an easy win on health care a day ahead of President Barack Obama’s bipartisan health summit. The 406-19 vote was part of a multipronged attack by Democrats

Wednesday against the unpopular industry. At a contentious House hearing, Democrats confronted executives of one company that has sought rate increases of up to 39 percent in California and accused them of purging their sickest customers while spending millions on exorbitant salaries and retreats at ritzy resorts for executives.

We have what should be a ‘deficit panel’ – Congress Great news! President Obama indicates he will appoint a “deficit panel” to deal with our astronomical debt and budget deficit. What a novel idea. It’s reassuring that our president is looking out for us in such trying (taxing) economic times. But wait. Don’t we already have 100 highly paid senators and 435 congressmen that legislate for fiscal responsibility? Doesn’t the Democratic Party (the party of the people) have a huge majority in both the House and Senate, and shouldn’t they be able to address the problem simply by passing legislation to curb spending? Surely they are working tirelessly to correct this situation that threatens to bankrupt the richest nation on the planet. I have to go now.

Help Bring It Home, High Point


Thomas L. Blount Editor




Michael B. Starn Publisher



ou don’t have to be rich, you don’t have to make “cold” calls, you don’t have to be an elected or appointed official, and you don’t have to be the leader of any group to help improve the economy – at least a little bit – in the greater High Point community. We’ll repeat some advice: If you belong to an organization that holds regional, statewide, national or international meetings, pass along to the High Point Convention & Visitors Bureau the name and contact information for the organization’s event planner. The High Point CVB this week relaunched its Bring It Home, High Point campaign from a few years ago, and is aiming to stimulate interest in the city as a convenient location for statewide and regionwide – even national and international – meetings and conventions. Tourism has brought lots of people and millions of dollars annually into North Carolina and the Piedmont Triad in general and into High Point in particular over the last few decades. That has been especially important as, during those same decades, we’ve seen the local textile and furniture industries fade and have much less positive influence on the local economy. Why the push? Year-to-date, CVB revenue from the hotelmotel occupancy tax is down 15 percent from the previous year and sales have declined every month his fiscal year, which is evidence of a slowing in convention and tourism visits to High Point. CVB reports a convention dollar turns over three times in the city’s economy before it leaves town, which means tourism’s economic impact on the area’s economy is $23 million a year. So it just makes good sense for the CVB and all of us to try to bring more convention and tourism dollars here. “We’re not asking for your money,” the Bring it Home High Point brochure says, “just the name of the decision-makers in the groups and organizations to which you belong.” The Bring it Home High Point campaign is about civic pride and how you can help bring folks to High Point, rather than Charlotte, Raleigh or any other city, to spend money at restaurants, hotels and motels, shops, tourist sites and other locations throughout the community. It’s easy: Just give the group name, group contact (with telephone number and/or email address) and the type of event to the Convention & Visitors Bureau, P.O.

We the people take a backseat to corporate money


e the people. Those are, of course, the first words of the preamble to the U.S. Constitution. “We the people of the United States ...” It doesn’t say anything about corporations. So count me among those mystified by January’s Supreme Court decision to sweep away decades of established law limiting the amount of money corporations can inject into political campaigns. The court ruled, 5-4, that corporations enjoy the same right to free speech as people do. Speech being defined as writing large checks to political candidates. The ruling raised the very real specter that our next president will be sponsored, not elected – a chilling prospect to those of us who already wondered how a legislator beholden to a corporation for his office can be truly expected to put the people first. This week’s congressional hearings only heighten the concern. Lawmakers are investigating the recent recalls over safety defects that have besmirched the reputation of the Toyota company. We are indebted to the Washington Post for publishing an analysis of legislators’ financial ties to the automaker. It turns out, according to the Post, that of the 125 members of Congress on the committees investigating Toyota, “over 40 percent” have accepted campaign donations totaling $135,673 from the company in the last 10 years. That’s on top of a million dollars funneled to lawmakers by Toyota through state parties and PACs. Which is, in turn, on top of yet another million, just since 2008, donated by Toyota to nonprofit groups with, as the Post put it, “strong ties” to members of Congress. Not to put too fine a point on this, but yours truly is not a guy who can – or would if he could – give millions to politicians. How can I be assured that, for all the posturing they do for the benefit of television cameras and reporters’ notebooks, those politicians will have “my” interests at heart? The answer is painfully obvious. I can’t. Here’s the funny part: if “I” accepted money from Toyota, my employer would forbid me to write about them or, at the very least,

require me to disclose the connection. If a judge accepted money from Toyota, she would be expected to recuse herself from any lawsuit to which the automaker was a party. If a police detective accepted money from Toyota, her lieuOPINION tenant would remove her from any investigation in which the Leonard company was involved. Pitts But “the people who make ■■■ the laws” are financially entangled with this and other companies, and we act as if that has no bearing on their ability to be fair and impartial where those companies are concerned. It makes zero sense. It also makes the case for public funding of all state and federal political campaigns. Get corporate money out of it once and for all. Require candidates to amass a threshold number of signatures, which then entitles them to campaign funds from the public treasury. Allow no one to opt out a la candidate Obama in 2008. While we’re at it, end the gerrymandering that allows candidates and parties to choose their own voters and ensure re-election in perpetuity. I’ve seldom met anyone, red state or blue, who didn’t think doing these things would be a good idea. The fact that they are yet undone speaks to the seductiveness of corporate money and the corresponding unresponsiveness of our representatives to the people they supposedly represent. So while I’m sure lawmakers will give us a good show in these hearings, I suspect it will come with a hidden wink and a smile. And that, at the end of the day, the concerns of we the people over the safety of these vehicles will be subordinate to those of the automaker that helps pay the bills. As I’ve said, I’m not a guy who can write the big checks. I’m just a guy who drives a Toyota. LEONARD PITTS JR., winner of the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for commentary, is a columnist for the Miami Herald.

Miller, Teter set fine examples for our young people


Don’t let blizzard snow job fool you on global warming


aced with the embarrassment of record snowstorms this winter, global warming apologists are now telling us such blizzards prove the existence of global warming. Global warming computer models, we are told, predict a higher frequency of extreme weather events, such as heat waves, drought, floods, violent storms, and, yes, blizzards. The problem with this theory is that there is no such increase in extreme weather events in the real world. High temperature extremes are not becoming more frequent. The all-time high temperature in Africa was set in 1922; in North America, 1913; in Asia, 1942; in Australia, 1889; in Europe, 1977; and in South America, 1920. In the United States, 30 of the 50 states experienced their all-time high temperature between 1910 and 1940. Fully 40 of the 50 states had their all-time high temperature before 1980. Flooding events likewise show no sign of increase. National Climatic Data Center records show U.S. precipitation has increased nearly 10 percent in the past 115 years, but fully half of this increase occurred during the fall drought season, when the least amount of precipitation happens and an increase in precipitation would be most beneficial. A study of stream flows and flooding events published in the April 2009 peer-reviewed Journal of the American Water Resources Association confirms this. “There is broad evidence … for increased magnitudes of low and moderate flows both regionally and nationally,” while “trends in

high flows have been much less evident,” the study concluded. Nor is drought becoming a problem. Not only is precipitation – particularly precipitation during the fall drought season – becoming more dependable, but drought as a whole is in sharp decline. A study published in the May 2006 peer-reviewed Geophysical Research Letters reported, “Droughts have, for the most part, become shorter, less frequent, and cover a smaller portion of the country over the last century.” A study in the March 2006 peer-reviewed Journal of

Global warming apologists are claiming this year’s frequent blizzards and record snow amounts are evidence of global warming. Hydrology reached a similar conclusion. “Evidence indicates that summer soil moisture content has increased during the last several decades at almost all sites having longterm records in the Global Soil Moisture Data Bank.” The oft-repeated claim that violent storms are becoming more numerous is also demonstrably false. National Weather Service records show the number of strong (F2 and higher) tornadoes in the United States has been declining for the past 35 years. Roughly twice as many

strong tornadoes struck the nation during the 1960s and 1970s, when the globe was cooling, as struck in the 1990s and 2000s. The hurricane record is similar. National Weather Service records show hurricanes struck the United States far more frequently in the late 1800s through the 1950s than has been the case since the 1960s. In fact, global hurricane frequency during the past two years was lower than at any time since at least the 1970s. Which brings us back to blizzards. Global warming apologists are claiming this year’s frequent blizzards and record snow amounts are evidence of global warming because warmer temperatures allow the air to hold more moisture, which in turn leads to heavier snow events. The problem with this theory is that North America has experienced one of its coldest winters in decades. It is certainly not warmer air this year that is causing more blizzards. Moreover, prior winter snow records, such as Washington DC’s prior record snowfall in 1899, were set during unusually cold winters, not unusually warm ones. The winter of 1899 was one of the coldest U.S. winters on record, especially during February when most of the record blizzards occurred. Global warming apologists seek to blame anything and everything on global warming, but the assertion that global warming is causing more blizzards and extreme weather events simply does not stand up under objective analysis.

of that maple syrup is also going to that Kenyan village. NBC traveled to Kenya to interview LESSONS people who LEARNED live in the village that Paula Teter supports Williams and where ■■■ she has been instrumental in building a school and a large medical facility as well as providing clean drinking water for the village. Those interviewed said that Teter had changed their lives and there was no way they could thank her enough. Wow! What generosity! Now that is an example of a U.S. athlete that we can all be proud to call our own. By the way, she won a silver medal on the halfpipe last week! What lessons can our children learn from Miller and Teter and many of our other U.S. Olympic athletes this year? First, they can learn that you should never give up on a dream, but rather understand that dreams only come true – in sports and in life – with hard work, determination and perseverance. These athletes did not decide just last month to attend the Olympics and compete. They have been training and working hard every day for years! We can all learn from their example. It is also important for our children to see that success can be used to help others. Being a star athlete does not give anyone the right to be self-indulgent. Being a person who thinks of others first and tries to make the world a better place is what being a success truly is. Hannah Teter could have bought her family a new house or herself a new car. Instead, she has made a lasting difference in an entire village that will never be the same because of her. Now that is a role model for our children to follow!




have absolutely loved watching the 2010 Winter Olympics from Vancouver, Canada, these last two weeks (and am somewhat sleep-deprived to prove it). In light of the highly negative publicity garnered by the now infamous Tiger Woods last week with his public apology – and that is all I want to say about him – I have found the U.S. Olympic athletes a refreshing change. Here are two examples that I think are excellent role models for our young people, although there are far too many to name among this year’s U.S. delegation of athletes that may prove to have the most successful Winter Olympics ever for a Team USA. Bodie Miller was a model of what not to do as an athlete four years ago in Torino, partying through those Olympics while not medaling at all in any of his downhill skiing events. This year has been far different, however. As of this writing, he had collected three medals and is now the most successful American downhill skier ever. What made the change? Miller is now married and has a child, and he said his perspective as a father has made a huge difference in his life. He is more settled and focused on what is truly important, and his focus has paid off in this year’s Olympic events. Then there is snowboarder Hannah Teter from Vermont. Hannah won a gold medal on the halfpipe four years ago and started a charity called “Hannah’s Gold.” Since those Olympics, all the prize money she has received from snowboarding has gone toward supporting an impoverished village in Kenya. Not 50 percent or even 75 percent of her winnings – all of her winnings. But that is not all. Her family lives in a rural area of Vermont where maple syrup is secured from the surrounding trees, and they have begun selling bottles of “Hannah’s Gold Maple Syrup.” They even hand label the bottles themselves. And guess what? 100 percent of the proceeds from the sale

‘Finest vs. Bravest’



Police, fire department do basketball benefit battle


HIGH POINT – City police officers and firefighters will come together in a friendly competition for a good cause next week. The United Way of Greater High Point’s “Finest vs. Bravest” basketball game is scheduled for Monday. United Way representatives said they got the idea for the game as they were thinking about ways to finish off their current campaign, which will soon come to a close. The organization has reached about 96 percent of its $4.5 million goal for the 2009 campaign. “We were looking at creative ways to reach our goal this year,” said Jane Liebscher, campaign division director for the United Way. “I personally ran the city


The High Point Police Department will play the High Point Fire Department in the United Way of Greater High Point’s first “Finest vs. Bravest” basketball game scheduled for Monday at Hartley Drive YMCA, 150 W. Hartley Drive. Tip-off is 6 p.m. Admission is $2; all proceeds will go to the United Way of Greater High Point.

of High Point’s United Way campaign. I had a firefighter and police officer serve as campaign coordinators for the city. I had firsthand experience watching their camaraderie and watching

the competition between the two departments.” Liebscher said 13 police officers and 18 firefighters are slated to participate in the game, which will include “cheerleaders” from the Salvation Army Boys & Girls Clubs and the Boys & Girls Clubs of High Point. The departments have faced off before in basketball games but never to benefit the United Way. A free-throw competition between high-ranking members of each department is slated for halftime. “This is not just some Harlem Globetrotters game that no one takes seriously,” Liebscher said. “Both teams will be playing to win. They’ve been busy practicing. They played each other last year and the fire department won, so there are some bragging rights at stake.”

Other attractions for the community will be at the game, including McGruff the Crime Dog, a police patrol car and fire truck. BBQ Joe’s and Krispy Kreme will have food for sale prior to the game. Retired WGHP sports anchor Rich Brenner is slated to serve as the official game announcer. “Obviously, this has been a challenging year, economically speaking. However, the citizens of High Point have really stepped up,” Liebscher said. “The city of High Point had a record-breaking United Way campaign this past year. They set their goal at $240,000 and they raised close to $300,000, so their level of commitment to this community, not only in a professional manner but also in their charitable giving, is amazing.” | 888-3531

Agency seeks help for event

Wendell F. Phillips, director of community outreach in the Division of Development and University Relations at North Carolina A&T State University, recently had a guest commentary that was featured on the BlackPressUSA Web site. In the article titled “The Audacity to Adopt,” Phillips explains why he feels there is a large disproportion of African-American families adopting children that were left behind in the aftermath of the recent earthquakes in Haiti.


HIGH POINT – Whether it be a strike, spare or gutter ball, bowlers soon will have the chance to roll for a good cause. Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Central Piedmont hope the annual Bowl for Kids’ Sake will raise $50,000 this year during events on March 6 and March 22. The group currently is looking for help from the greater High Point Community to achieve that goal. “We are a little more than halfway there,” said Ellen Werner, coordinator of the event. Werner said help is needed in the form of donations. Also, the more bowlers who participate, the better. Werner said it’s easy to make an online donation by going to and clicking on the “Bowl for Kids Sake” icon on the left side of the page. Then click on “secure pledge form” and follow the directions. All donations are appreciated, Werner said. Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Central Piedmont is an affiliate of Big Brothers Big Sisters of America. It partners adult mentors with at-risk kids to give them positive role models and help them make positive life choices. A portion of the money raised will help the program expand its recruitment efforts. “In 2009, we served 600 children in our community,” Werner said. “But, there are still approximately 150 children on our waiting list.” The typical wait is two years for a girl and even longer for a boy, Werner said. “Way too long,” says executive director Wendy Rivers. Residents are encouraged to come out and bowl in the events, which will be held at High Point Bowling Center, 309 W. Fairfield Road, on Saturday morning, March 6, and Monday evening, March 22. All bowlers receive a Tshirt. Bowling and shoes are free.

Tillman undecided on another airport board term BY PAUL B. JOHNSON ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

TRIAD – Retired High Point physician Dr. Otis Tillman said he hasn’t decided whether he wants to pursue another term as a member of the Piedmont Triad Airport Authority. Tillman, who’s nearing the end of his third term on the governing board for Piedmont Triad International Airport, is one of three appointees to the authority by the Guilford County Board of Commissioners. His three-year term expires in mid-April. “I haven’t made up my mind yet,” Tillman said Wednesday. Tillman, a former trea-

surer of the authority, has served since April 2001. He’s the lone black memTillman ber of the seven-member authority. The Guilford County Board of Commissioners maintains a general practice of limiting people to two terms on appointed boards. But exceptions to the practice have been made in the past, including with the authority. Current authority Chairman Henry Isaacson of Greensboro and former board member Walt Cockerham of Greensboro were permitted to serve beyond


The seven members of the Piedmont Triad Airport Authority are appointed by five governmental bodies in Guilford and Forsyth counties. Three members are appointed by the Guilford County Board of Commissioners and one each is appointed by the High Point, Greensboro and WinstonSalem city councils and the Forsyth County Board of Commissioners. two terms, as has Tillman in his third term. Republican Commissioner Linda Shaw of Greensboro said she’d prefer the commissioners stick with the practice of limiting appointed board members to two terms or scrap the practice entirely. “Dr. Tillman has done a great job and has been a good representative,”


Shaw added. The appointment will be a High Point resident to maintain a High Pointer on the authority through the commissioners, Shaw said. The commissioners probably will fill the authority slot during their second meeting in March, she said. | 888-3528

Son, daughter resent widowerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new confidante


ear Abby: My mother recently passed away. She and Dad were married 52 happy years. Over the years, Mom received a few Christmas cards from â&#x20AC;&#x153;Linda,â&#x20AC;? my brotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s girlfriend 30 years ago. Dad found Lindaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s address and let her know about Momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s passing. Now he says he and Linda have become good friends. Dad says theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re â&#x20AC;&#x153;only friendsâ&#x20AC;? and Linda is someone he can talk to. We are very upset about whatever relationship they have. My brother and I and our children want to be the ones to comfort Dad and be comforted by him. It has been only two months since Momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death. He talks to Linda about everything. They have even discussed the details of Momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grave marker. Linda says Dad is the father she never had. (Her father is still living.) I confronted Dad about it, and we had a huge argument. Are we wrong and insensitive for disapproving of his closeness with this woman? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Falling Apart in Texas Dear Falling Apart: Please accept my sympathy for the loss of your mother. You and your brother and children may want to be the ones to comfort your father (and be comforted by him), but what he may feel he needs right now is someone he can talk to

who is not emotionally involved and doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need comforting. You didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do anything wrong, but please remember that you are all grieving right now, and when people ADVICE are grieving, their Dear emotions Abby are raw. â&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  This situation will work itself out in time, but until it does, please remember that your father can talk to whomever he pleases. Dear Abby: My husband and I have been married 13 years and have two children, 7 and 9. About a year ago, my 41-year-old husband befriended an 11-year-old neighbor girl, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lacey.â&#x20AC;? Lacey is charming, friendly and plays with my children. I like her and her family, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m bothered that she and my husband have a relationship that seems questionable to me and his friends. Lacey texts him daily, to which he quickly responds. They have conversations in our driveway, and they text each other constantly at neighborhood socials even though theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in the same room. I have told my husband I am concerned and that it may be an unhealthy relationship,

but he becomes angry and insulted and says itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an innocent friendship. Others have also voiced their concerns to him because they see the same things I do. On the other hand, her parents think the friendship is innocent. Abby, am I overreacting? Should I view it as an innocent friendship, or could there really be a problem? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Worried Wife Down South Dear Worried: I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re overreacting in light of the fact that other adults are picking up on the â&#x20AC;&#x153;vibesâ&#x20AC;? and making comments. I find it of concern that Lacey doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have playmates her own age. It appears she has a crush on your husband, and he finds it flattering and is encouraging her. While the conversations in the driveway may be completely innocent, the idea that they are texting each other makes me uncomfortable.

often hear people say very frankly that they are concerned that in certain situations, giving can be enabling. When asked to elaborate, they inevitably say they don’t want to encourage dependency, and they will say that our country’s welfare system has destroyed the work ethic of too many generations. I hear and understand these arguments; however, I will ask people not to let their opinion keep them from giving, because philanthropy almost always makes sense when it is approached in an informed and discerning manner. My father taught me early that there is a huge difference between a hand up and a handout. I believe that in any giving situation, there must be a “buy in” from the recipient to provide them a stake in the process. Whether it is donated man hours, expectations in behavior or creating ways to contribute financially, this removes the victim mentality and creates organizations and people who become masters of their own destiny. If we are going to give to a charity, I absolutely feel that recipients must be able to show how they will accurately measure their success. If our retirement investments are not growing, we replace them. Philanthropy should be no different; we must be able to see progress toward an intended goal.

Finally, at High Point Community Foundation, we very carefully research organizaGIVING 101 tions before we make Paul grants beLessard cause there ■■■ are those who do their jobs efficiently and effectively and many who do not. We want to become partners with the ones who are the very best at what they do. The future for nonprofits in this country is the ongoing reduction of duplication by rewarding the best and eliminating the inefficient. Our great nation has been built upon the unconquerable American work ethic. When we deprive people of their opportunity to improve themselves by earning their own way, we take away not only their self respect, but also we create a sense of entitlement that ultimately hurts both the giver and the recipient. So remember, the best expression of true compassion is giving wisely.

The FOX8 Holiday Blood Drive held at Showplace in High Point on Dec. 15 was in honor of our daughter, Kate Thornton, and her many friends who are battling cancer. It comes in many forms of pain and disabilities. It turns whole families’ worlds upside down. Remission takes months and even years of special treatments from many caring doctors, both local and at Brenner Children’s Hospital. To the 422 blood donors of Dec. 15, you are miracles to many of Kate’s known and unknown friends who depend on whole blood and platelets to survive. We thank FOX8, the American Red Cross, all of the volunteers and many caterers who worked tirelessly to make the Holiday Blood Drive a record success – again! JOE AND SUSAN THORNTON Thomasville

Ministroke is big warning


ear Dr. Donohue: I’m a 66-year-old woman who had a scare last week. While visiting my daughter, I got an attack of dizziness, and I couldn’t talk. My daughter rushed me to the hospital, and the doctors told me I had a ministroke. Will you please explain its significance? – L.H.


A ministroke, also called a TIA (transient ischemic attack), is a warning alarm that there’s trouble with the blood supply to the brain and that a full-blown stroke could happen. Such is the case for 15 percent of those with a ministroke within three months of its occurrence. Symptoms are the symptoms of stroke: numbness of face, arm or leg; inability to move the arm or leg; mental confusion; slurred speech; the inability to express oneself; dizziness; or loss of balance. The symptoms last only a short time – two to 15 minutes, and never longer than one day. Full recovery occurs. However, treatment must begin immediately to prevent a stroke. The carotid arteries, the large arteries on the right and left sides of the neck, have to be examined to see if they have a buildup of plaque obstructing blood flow to the brain. You must go on a program that lowers cholesterol, and that’s most often achieved by taking statin medicines (Lipitor and Zocor are examples). Blood pressure has to be















controlled. Medicines that prevent platelets (clotforming cells) from clinging HEALTH to plaque in arteries Dr. Paul are usually Donohue part of the ■■■ regimen. If a significant blockage is found in one of your carotid arteries, then a decision has to be made about cleaning out that artery. A vascular surgeon can open the artery and clean it out, or it might be cleaned out like heart arteries are – with a special kind of catheter, a thin, pliable tube that is inched into the area of blockage from a surface artery. Dear Dr. Donohue: I have peripheral neuropathy, and it’s not from diabetes. Currently I am using capsaicin gel. It helps some, but often I am wakened with a lot of pain in my feet. My doctor prescribed Lyrica and Neurontin. I do not do well on painkillers. The next day I am groggy and have an uneasy feeling, so I do not take these drugs. I wonder if there are other preparations that might help my neuropathy. – H.D. We have two kinds of nerves: motor nerves that bring instructions to muscles on how to move, and sensory nerves that bring sensations to the brain, telling it how we feel. Neuropathy indicates nerve damage. You have

a sensory neuropathy, which causes you pain. Both Lyrica and Neurontin come in many different strengths. Perhaps a lower dose would control your pain without making you groggy. Antidepressants control pain. Amitriptyline, Cymbalta (duloxetine) and Effexor (venlafaxine) have deadened pain for many people with peripheral neuropathy. Lidocaine, a numbing agent, is available in patches and gels, and is applied to the skin. It doesn’t make people groggy. A new formulation of capsaicin is the Qutenza patch. It is approved for the treatment of pain that often follows an outbreak of shingles, but it can be used for other neuropathies too. The patch has to be applied by a doctor. Dear Dr. Donohue: How can you tell if you have a blocked carotid artery? The left side of my face feels tight. – T.C. Facial tightness isn’t a sign of a blocked carotid artery. A person cannot tell if the carotid artery is blocked. A scan or an ultrasound provides such evidence. I wish I could come up with a diagnosis for your facial tightness. I have to admit that I don’t have an idea. 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

Blues musicians Bibb, Foster team up for concert ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT


IGH POINT – Two contemporary blues artists will team up for a concert Saturday night at the High Point Theatre. Both Eric Bibb and Ruthie Foster have successful solo careers, but they are performing together for their current tour. Foster, who performs a mix of blues and gospel, recently was nominated for a Grammy Award for her most recent album, “The Truth According to Ruthie Foster.” Born into a family of gospel singers, she began her recording career in 1997, and she has since recorded six albums. Foster often is compared to Ella Fitzgerald and Aretha Franklin. She delivers a sound with a strong Southern blues groove, a rock and roll rhythm, a note of gospel and poetic country lyricism delivered with a jazzy voice. Also hailing from a rich musical tradition, Bibb is the son of Leon Bibb, a performer in New York’s musical theaters who also made a name for himself in that city’s 1960s’ folk scene. His uncle is pianist and composer John Lewis, of the Modern Jazz Quartet, and other influences include family friends Pete Seeger and blues legend Odetta. When Bibb was young, he left the United States in 1970 for Paris, where he became a touring and recording artist on the European blues circuit. He recorded his first album in 1972 and released his 23rd, “Diamond Days,” in 2007. Bibb received a Grammy Award nomination, four W.C. Handy Award nominations, and in 2008, he was nominated for Acoustic Artist of the Year in the Blues Music Awards. Their concert is at 8 p.m. at the theater, 220 E. Commerce Ave. A pre-show reception, free to ticket holders, begins at 6:30 p.m. Refreshments will be served. Concert tickets are $25 for seats in the orchestra, $20 in the balcony. They are available online at or by calling 887-3001.

Three decades after Elvis Presley took his last bow on the Las Vegas Strip, where he once reigned as king, the magicians of Cirque du Soleil have tried to summon back the power of this supreme entertainer in a show titled, “Viva Elvis.” They have mixed a dizzying array of dance, acrobatics, live music overthe-top stage sets and glitzy costumes with gigantic videos of Elvis in his most legendary performances and memorable life events. In the words of an Elvis song, the result is “Too Much.” It’s as if we’re watching two different shows – the circus performances that are the Cirque franchise and a tribute to Elvis that would have stood on its own. The 45 candycolored, whimsically designed jumpsuits worn by a dance troupe are fun to watch. And the show has 120 costume changes, including a Follies-like Las Vegas number. But for all the energy, skill and effort evident on stage, the most riveting segments of “Viva Elvis” are the videos in which the Presley charisma is as mesmerizing as ever. Friday night’s premiere was before a starstudded audience of 1,800 at the specially designed Elvis theater in the new Aria Hotel. Videos were projected in a gigantic juke box frame as Elvis’ voice filled the theater singing “Blue Suede Shoes.” Scenes from his concerts, the hysteria of his fans, and his TV appearances set the stage for a retrospective of his life.






LAST SPADE South takes the ace of spades and next the A-K of diamonds. He leads a trump to dummy, returns the jack of diamonds and pitches his last spade when East plays low. West takes the queen and returns a diamond, letting East ruff dummy’s ten. South overruffs, leads a trump to dummy and leads the ten of spades, planning to discard a club if East plays low. If East’s king covers, South ruffs and re-enters dummy to pitch a club on the high nine of spades. The contract is assured.



BRIDGE Experience is what lets us repeat our mistakes with more finesse -- or, as in today’s deal, with too many finesses. When West led a spade against four hearts, South took one finesse too many: He played low from dummy. East won and led the queen of clubs, and the defense took three clubs. Down one. South had enough experience to know that finesses are fickle. He has the material for 10 tricks but must focus on establishing them while not letting East gain the lead for a deadly club shift.




DAILY QUESTION You hold: S A 10 9 H K J 8 D J 10 7 2 C 5 3 2. Your partner opens one heart, you raise to two hearts and he bids three clubs. What do you say? ANSWER: Partner’s three clubs is a try for game and asks you to pay particular attention to your holding in his second suit. If you had 10 9 3, K J 8, 8 7 6 2, K 10 2, you’d bid four hearts despite your minimum count. With your actual hand, try 3NT. Your clubs are the worst, but you have too many values to sign off below game. South dealer E-W vulnerable

Focus on the pluses. ★★ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You may have to pull up stakes and make a move if you want to stay on top of your finances.

Make decisions based on facts, figures and what will serve you best. ★★★ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Look at the people you have associated with in the past before you decide to make a change. Partnering with someone you know you can trust will make your job much easier. An old friend will help you make a good choice. ★★★ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Take advantage of a job offer. You will have a gut feeling that will enable you to make a good choice regarding a financially beneficial partnership or move. Your ability to excel will push you to greater heights. ★★★ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Your instincts are good and your ability to attract attention will drum up personal and professional interest. Enjoy the time you spend with friends, colleagues and your lover. Each will offer you good suggestions. ★★★★★ 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.

Seminoles turn back UNC CHAPEL HILL (AP) – Chris Singleton scored 19 points and Florida State hit 11 3-pointers to beat struggling North Carolina 77-67 on Wednesday night, handing the defending national champions their latest double-digit loss. Deividas Dulkys scored 17 and hit five 3s off the bench to help the Seminoles (20-7, 8-5 Atlantic Coast Conference) guarantee themselves at least a break-even record in league

play that could be critical for their NCAA Tournament chances. It was Florida State’s first win in Chapel Hill since 2000 and marked the first time in 13 years that the Seminoles have won two straight in a series long dominated by the Tar Heels. The Seminoles controlled this one from the start, going 9-for-15 from 3-point range in the opening half and capitalizing on repeated turnovers to open a 48-33 lead at the break.

That lead grew to 23 points early in the second half as the Tar Heels (14-14, 3-10) mounted relatively little resistance much of the night. Derwin Kitchen had 13 points, seven rebounds and six assists for the Seminoles, who got numerous open looks on the perimeter by repeatedly driving by their defenders and kicking out. Will Graves scored 21 points to lead North Carolina, which shot 42 percent.


HIGH POINT – A curious pregame display leading up to the second-round playoff game between the Butler Bulldogs and Southwest Guilford Wednesday night foreshadowed what would play out on the floor over the next 32 minutes. The Bulldogs were allowed to make themselves at home in Southwest’s gymnasium, both figuratively and literally, as many of the younger Butler fans were permitted to pull tape from their pockets and post signs of support on one of the gym’s four walls. The unorthodox style characterized both the team’s celebration and its play on the floor, as Butler handed Southwest a 52-42 defeat. The Cowgirls (20-7) weathered a sloppy first quarter during which they turned the ball over 11 times to rally within 35-30 at the end of three quarters. Unfortunately, the turnovers reared their ugly head again in the fourth and doomed the team. “We committed five crucial turnovers beginning at the five-minute mark,” Southwest coach Jessica Bryan said. “My girls just lost their composure. Number 11 (Cierra Burdick) came into the game and hit three baskets in a row. I don’t know if that rattled my girls. I just think it was those five key turnovers.” Burdick – committed to play for the Tennessee Volunteers in 2011 – was held scoreless in the first half, but tallied 13 points in the second half to lead Butler. Southwest began attacking the basket halfway through the second quarter with great success and the Cowgirls managed to send three Bulldogs – including Burdick – to the bench with foul trouble, managing a 23-18 deficit at the half. “I think they were surprised,” senior center Cheyenne Parker said. “I don’t think they were expecting such a big post game. Brittany Connor and I both stepped up.” Parker had eight points to go along with 15 rebounds in another dominating defensive performance for Southwest. Connor pitched in 10 points and Zena Lovette led the Cowgirls with 13, 11 in the second half.



Philadelphia University coach Herb Magee got his 903rd career victory, moving past Bob Knight to become the winningest men’s coach in NCAA history. The 68-year-old Magee got the record with a 76-65 win over GoldeyBeacom College Tuesday night. Magee has won all 903 games over a 43-year career with the Division II Rams. Knight won 902 games in a 42-year career. Northern State coach Don Meyer, who announced his retirement Monday, has 922 victories between the NAIA and NCAA.




Butler, Butler everywhere! Ragsdale’s Jaxon Randolph (center) is surrounded by Butler defenders including Anthony Colson (left) and Aerris Smith (33) during Wednesday night’s NCHSAA 4A West second-round playoff game in Jamestown. Randolph finished with seven points as the Tigers advanced. See prep roundup on 3D.


HIGH POINT – They can’t all be this easy, can they? For the second straight time, High Point Andrews’ boys raced to a huge early lead and set the cruise control en route to an easy playoff win. This time, the Raiders jumped ahead of Forest Hills 24-12 after one quarter en route to a 69-45 victory in the second round of the 2A West playoffs in High Point. Now the Raiders, the top seed out of the PAC-6, host conference foe Carver at 7 p.m. Friday in the sectional final. The Raiders beat Carver twice in the regular season before falling

to Carver in the conference tournament final last Friday. So far, Andrews coach James Abell hasn’t even broken a sweat after two easy playoff wins. “We’re still making shots,” Abell said. “Like I said last game (a 90-48 win over East Davidson), if we make shots we’re gonna be OK. That lets us set our defense up.” Mark Johnson’s 3-pointer from the wing put the Raiders in front 12-7 midway through the first quarter. Moments later Johnson scored and Darius Rogers and Jalen Ford hit 3s to stretch the lead to 22-10. Two more 3-pointers, from Johnson and Alex Smith, made it 33-18 midway through the second and the Raiders were rolling.

Andrews simply proved too much to defend for Forest Hills, who opened in a box-and-one defense to try to shut down Quan Stevenson. “We always think it’s funny when people run the box-and-one,” Abell added. “When you look at our scoring, we’ve got five or six guys that average over seven or eight points. We don’t have to hide anybody on offense; everybody knows their shots and they’re free to take them at any time.” Johnson led the Raiders with 17 points, 15 of which came before halftime. Torian Showers added 15, and Jamie Smith had 11. Post player Markell Lotharp paced the Jackets with 13 points, while Dre Huntley scored 11.




uke steps out of conference tonight for a game against Tulsa (7 p.m., ESPN2). On the surface, this doesn’t seem unusual. The Blue Devils traditionally schedule a regular-season nonconference game in late February. But this year’s opponent is a bit surprising. This slot on the Duke schedule is normally reserved for a team such as St. John’s, UCLA

or Temple – a traditional power from a major conference. In the Golden Hurricane, the Blue Devils face a squad from a mid-major conference (in this case Conference USA) battling for its NCAA Tournament life. Tulsa stands 19-8 overall and 8-5 in league play. That leaves the Golden Hurricane firmly on the dreaded NCAA bubble. This means Duke must brace for a deter-

mined, desperate foe playing for its postseason life. But this also gives the Blue Devils a chance to test themselves against the kind of team they’re likely to see in the first or second round of the NCAA Tournament. It’s wise scheduling in my view and could serve Duke well down the road to March Madness.

Olympic lookahead It’s the moment so many wait for at every Winter Olympics: the free skate in women’s figure skating. South Korean Kim Yu-na will go for the gold against Japan’s Mao Asada. NBC will carry the final skate in prime time. The day’s other highlight is the women’s hockey gold medal game between the United States and Canada on MSNBC. SURE THING?: Kim was the figure skating favorite all along, and she has the lead entering the free skate. Asada is second, and Canada’s Joannie Rochette is third following an emotional short program shortly after the death of her mother. SIMPLY THE BEST: The United States and Canada have rolled through the women’s hockey tournament, leaving no doubt which two teams are the best. It’s no surprise they’ll play each other for gold. WRAPPING UP: The second run of the women’s giant slalom was pushed from Wednesday today because of dense fog. Lindsey Vonn is already out after crashing. ENCORE?: After a pair of silver medals already in the Nordic combined, the Americans hope to add gold in the final event in that sport, a 10-kilometer cross-country skiing race that follows ski jumping off the large hill.

Canada finishes 1-2 in women’s bobsled WHISTLER, British Columbia (AP) — Canada’s Kaillie Humphries has won gold in Olympic women’s bobsled, beating teammate Helen Upperton. Humphries was an alternate brakeman four years ago in Turin, losing her spot to Heather Moyse in Upperton’s sled. But the two teamed up to win at the Vancouver Games, finishing four runs down the blistering-fast Whistler Sliding Center track in 3 minutes, 32.28 seconds. The gold was Canada’s seventh of the games, putting it in a three-way tie with Germany and the United States. Upperton was second in 3:33.13 for the silver, and Erin Pac of the United States took the bronze in 3:33.40. Upperton and Moyse missed a bronze by .05 seconds four years ago. American Shauna Rohbock, who called the speedy track “stupid fast” after a training run last week, finished sixth.

Panther men look to crack top four in Big South BY GREER SMITH ENTERPRISE SPORTS WRITER

HIGH POINT – The window of opportunity remains open, but it isn’t very wide. High Point University’s Panthers still have a chance at landing an openinground home game in next week’s Big South men’s tournament as they prepare to wrap up the season at Millis Center the with a two-game set that begins tonight against Winthrop (7 p.m., 98.3 FM) and ends against last-place Presbyterian on Saturday. HPU, which is sixth in the league at 88, needs to climb two spots to fourth to

have a shot at a first-round home tournament game. With UNC Asheville in fourth at 10-7 and fifth-place Liberty at 9-7, the Panthers need Asheville to lose its regular-season finale to ninth-place Gardner-Webb and for Liberty to lose at least one of its two games (tonight at Coastal Carolina and Saturday at Charleston Southern). Asheville helped the HPU cause by losing to Winthrop on Tuesday night. That outcome assured Coastal, Winthrop and Radford of being the top three seeds. A win over Winthrop would also give the Panthers (13-14) a shot at finishing at .500 for the season. HPU lost 82-68 at Winthrop on Dec. 5,

games. VMI guard Austin Kenon exploited their defense for 38 points. Liberty senior guard Kyle Ohman bettered that by one as he came within two of the Vines Center record for a Flame. Such an outburst from an Eagle is unlikely since none of them average in double figures. Reggie Middelton is Winthrop’s leading scorer at 9.7 ppg and Matt Morgan is next 9.4 ppg, not enough to put them in the top 25 in the league. Winthrop’s strength has been a staunch defense. The Eagles rank second in the league with an average of 61.8 points per game but are just ninth on the offensive scale with an average of 62 points. | 888-3519

but the Panthers have played much better at home than on the road. They are 10-1 at the Millis Center, the only loss to VMI in what coach Scott Cherry called one of the more disappointing performances of the year. The Panthers will be trying to fix two areas of concern that bit them in a 76-67 loss to Liberty that was their most recent game. Continuing a weakness that has cropped up all season particularly on the road but also in some home games, HPU got off to slow second-half start as it quickly squandered a nine-point lead. The Panthers have also allowed the opponent’s leading scorer to light them up for nearly 40 points in the last two


LEXINGTON – The recent past looks pretty rosy. Slightly more distant is a crushing defeat. No matter, the Davidson County Community College men’s basketball team is only focused on the present when the Storm plays host to the Region X Tournament starting today. “We’re extremely excited, but we want to base our pride on the future and not what we’ve done thus far,” said DCCC coach Matt Ridge, whose 26-4 team enters as the No. 1 seed. “What we’ve done just puts a big bulls-eye on our chest and means everybody’s going to be ready to play us.” The third-year program reached the tournament championship game each of the past two seasons before falling to Catawba Valley. The Hickory school won with a 3-pointer at the buzzer last season, but has moved up to the National Junior College Athletic Association Division II ranks. “That was a tough way to go out,” Ridge said. “I told the kids if we keep knocking on the door, eventually it will open.” At stake is a home game next weekend in the one-game District 7 championship. The winners of those eight district games played across the country then convene in Delhi, N.Y., from March 11-13 for the D-III championship. DCCC and No. 2 seed Southwest Virginia have

first-round byes for this six-team tournament. The Storm gets the winner of today’s No. 4 Sandhills vs. No. 5 Central Carolina game. DCCC beat both teams twice in the regular season, but had to pull out a pair of single-digit decisions over Central and rally from 15 points down for a two-point win in the last meeting with Sandhills. “It’s going to be a war,” Ridge said. “It’s really a bottleneck, wide open. You’ve got to play well two days in a row, or for everybody but us and Southwest Virginia, three days in a row.” Tickets at Brinkley Gymnasium are free and available on a firstcome, first-served basis. Ridge praised the community support his team has received this season: “It’s rare in community college to have the gym packed, but our’s has seemed to be that way a lot and I hope it will be again this weekend. These are certainly the most important games on our schedule.” Fans will see a Storm squad sparked by the defensive play of guards Justin Glover and Phillip Williams, the strong play of Williams at the point, and former Trinity star Eric Potts doing “all the little things he does to help us win,” Ridge praised. “Eric Potts has been the backbone of our program the last two years, a big reason we’ve won 26 games this year,” Ridge added. “Hopefully we’ve got a few more left in us.” | 888-3526

RCR enjoys fast start to season A

couple of events at the start of the season don’t necessarily indicate how things are going to go for the remainder of the year. When it comes to ACC basketball, just ask Virginia. The Cavaliers were the talk and surprise of the league when they jumped out to a 3-0 league start. But the wheels have fallen off in the last couple of weeks as they have dropped six in a row to fall to eighth place at 5-8. SPORTS Over in NASCAR land, the early surprise is Greer Richard Childress RacSmith ing. With 34 more races ■■■ to prove that is all the way back after a horrible 2009 in which none of its four drivers won a race or made the Chase for the Championship, RCR has been impressive so far. All three of its drivers for this season finished in the top 10 at Daytona and at California. They sit first, second and fifth in the points, topped by Kevin Harvick leading teammate Clint Bowyer by 19 with Jeff Burton in fifth and 31 out of first. Harvick has been the most impressive so far with a victory in the Shootout, losing his Daytona qualifying race by inches and possibly having the best car in the Daytona 500 and at California. He would up seventh at Daytona after losing the lead with a half-lap to go and then settled for second at California after leading until Jimmie Johnson wound up in front after catching a lucky break when the caution flag came out as he was making a late pit stop. Harvick and Burton each led at California before the timing of pit stops gave Johnson the lead. Burton finished third, with Bowyer eighth. Bowyer wound up the top RCR finisher at Daytona in fourth after he and others surged past Harvick in the final lap. Burton finished 11th. Harvick said the turnaround began in the middle of last year when RCR began rolling out its current version of the new generation Cup car and was accel-


Richard Childress Racing teammates Kevin Harvick (left) and Jeff Burton, shown in this 2008 file photo, are currently setting a blistering pace on the Cup circuit. Harvick leads the points through two races with Burton fifth. Clint Bowyer, the third RCR driver, stands second in the points. erated by a number of personnel moves, the biggest coming when Childress promoted Burton’s crew chief Scott Miller to competition director. “I think the team started to kind of turn a corner last year when we got to Indianapolis,” Harvick said. “The season was kind of a disaster at that point in the year. And that was where we started to turn it around and getting a lot of different cars built. You know, when you start the season and you’ve got 40 or 50 cars between the four teams that are built in the wrong direction, it takes a long time to get that fleet of cars turned around, and, you know, get a new direction of what you need to do

technically with your cars and get your engineering group change. “Once we started changing cars, we didn’t have the consistency that we needed to last year because it was kind of sporadic because we didn’t have very many cars. But I think as we got towards the end of the year, there was one, if not two of us, who would run good every week. Once they had time to sit down during the winter, they were able to get everything squared away and go through throughout the notes and know exactly what they need for cars. If you just were around the track, you could really sense the fact that the cars were running a lot better and ev-

Vonn crashes, U.S. hockey pulls out tight game THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

VANCOUVER, British Columbia – Lindsey Vonn went down hard. Zach Parise made sure the U.S. men’s hockey team didn’t. Hours after Vonn tumbled into the safety netting in the giant slalom and was taken for X-rays, the hockey guys found themselves in trouble against Switzerland. The game was scoreless a couple minutes into the third period until Parise broke through. He added an empty-net goal in the closing seconds to seal a 2-0 victory and put the Americans into the semifinals. Next up is the winner of Finland and Czech Republic later Wednesday. NBC already has said it will show the game live, in all time zones, at noon PST Friday. Vonn’s status isn’t so clear. She broke her right pinkie finger in Wednesday’s crash, and it wasn’t immediately known if she will ski her

final event – the slalom – on Friday. Vonn landed on her left hip and battered her chin with a ski as she fell. She’s already been dealing with a bruised right shin. The cover girl coming into these Winter Games, Vonn’s scorecard so far shows two medals (a gold and a bronze) and two wipeouts. Thick fog forced the second leg of the giant slalom to be delayed until today. More delays might end up giving Vonn more time to heal, as happened with her shin, but there isn’t much time left in the Olympics. In the event finals completed so far Wednesday, Germany picked up another medal, making 24 overall. The Americans are stuck at 26. Both countries are tied for the most gold with seven. The best hope for the United States was in the women’s bobsled later in the day. But even that is muted by the fact Germany might win the other two medals.

The other big event Wednesday night was the hockey game between international superpowers Canada and Russia, with only one advancing.

HOCKEY Swiss goalie Jonas Hiller kept the game scoreless by stuffing Parise several times, with two more of Parise’s shots clanking against the goal posts. Then there was the shot that Hiller tried swatting away, but it went off his shoulder and into the net – a millisecond or two after the second period ended. Parise scored 2:08 into the final period by redirecting a shot by Brian Rafalski early in a power play. Switzerland fought to tie it, but Ryan Miller made 19 saves and Parise scored again with 11.2 seconds left. “We were close to getting frustrated,” Miller said.

Laettner, Thompson join Collegiate Hall of Fame KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Christian Laettner won two national titles, an Olympic gold and played 12 seasons in the NBA. To this day, all anyone wants to talk about is The Shot. March 28, 1992, NCAA East Regional final at the Spectrum in Philadelphia. Laettner catches a long inbounds pass with the clock nearly expired, turns and shoots, and sends Duke to a win over Kentucky and on to a national championship. “People always approach me and ask about that game, every day of the year, especially when it comes tournament time,” Laettner said. “It’s crazy, but I don’t mind it. It’s better than ’how’s the weather up there?”’ Laettner joined UCLA star Sidney Wicks, West Virginia sharpshooter Jerry West and high-flying N.C. State All American David Thompson among the eight members of the

National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame’s 2010 class announced on Wednesday. Triangle offense innovator Tex Winter, Alcorn State coach Davey Whitney, NCAA executive vice president Tom Jernstedt and former Big Eight and Big Ten commissioner Wayne Duke also will be inducted on Nov. 21 in Kansas City. “What an amazing class,” said Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski, chair the National Association of Basketball Coaches. They’ll be recognized as founding members of the collegiate hall after being inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. Previous founding members of the collegiate hall include Larry Bird and Magic Johnson last year, Charles Barkley the year before and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in 2007. Thompson was one of the best col-

lege players of all time, a superb leaper and shooter who was twice the national player of the year and a three-time All American. He helped the Wolfpack beat John Wooden’s dynastic UCLA Bruins in the 1974 NCAA championship and was the Naismith player of the year as a senior after turning down an offer to play professionally. “There’s an argument that he may be the best college player ever,” Krzyzewski said. “Certainly, in our conference, many, many people would give him that vote.” Laettner led the Blue Devils to four straight Final Four berths and won national championships his final two seasons, in 1991 and 1992. He was the most outstanding player of the Final Four as a junior and the national player of the year as a senior, when he hit that shot against Kentucky.

erybody was headed in the right direction, probably three quarters through the year last year.” Last year marked the second drought for RCR since Harvick moved into one of its Cup cars in 2001. RCR scored just one win in 2004 and 2005 before Harvick broke out for five victories and Jeff Burton scored one in 2006. “The model that you base yourself off that’s so successful is obviously the Hendrick organization,” Harvick said. “They always seem to be one step ahead of everything that’s happening. In order to get to that level, we have to figure out exactly what we need to do consistently to keep pushing things forward. I guess the hard part is to continue working in every area and work within your budgets and work within all of the things that come with running the race team in order to be successful going forward. “But we have done a really good job of catching up and we have done a really good job of making our stuff competitive again. But you saw how long it took, and it took six, seven months to really get things back where they needed to be. So you can’t go through those cycles.” Harvick, who hasn’t won a points race since the 2007 Daytona 500, isn’t ready to go out on a limb and say RCR will perform at the same level for the rest of the season. The upcoming switch from rear wing to rear spoiler on the new generation car leaves too much in doubt. The switch is expected to be made in late March or early April. “I still think there’s a lot of unknowns as far as what’s going to happen when the spoiler gets put on the car,” Harvick said. “I feel we are doing the right things to know what the spoiler is going to do differently for the car, and we have got a couple of tests coming up. As long as everything keeps going like it’s going, I think chances are as good as they have been for us to get in the Chase and hopefully compete for the Championship. But I think it’s probably going to be eight or ten weeks into the season until you really know where you stand with the spoiler.” | 888-3519

High Point’s DeGeare invited to NFL combine ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

HIGH POINT – The rest of the week could have a big bearing on how High Point resident Chris DeGeare may fare in this year’s NFL draft. DeGeare, an offensive tackle, was among three players from Wake Forest invited to participate in the NFL scouting combine that began Wednesday in Indianapolis. School-record-setting quarterback Riley Skinner and safety Brandon Ghee were the other Demon Deacons among 329 invitees. The Combine is an opportunity for NFL scouts, coaches, general managers and player personnel DeGeare directors to evaluate the crop of players that are available in the upcoming NFL Draft. There will be more than 600 NFL personnel at the Combine. DeGeare, who played at T. Wingate Andrews and Glenn in high school, started his evaluation process on Wednesday when he and other lineman went through physical exams and were also interviewed by NFL team personnel. On Thursday, the linemen will undergo measurements, physical exams and take the Wonderlic intelligence Test. On Friday, they will continue their interviews and testing while also having a meeting with the National Football League Players Association. The linemen finally hit the field at Lucas Oil Stadium on Saturday when they will be tested in the 40-yard dash, 3-cone drill, 20-yard and 60-yard shuttles, bench press, vertical jump and broad jump. Skinner will be in Indianapolis starting Thursday along with other prospective quarterbacks, wide receivers and running backs. They will follow the same schedule as the offensive linemen, just one day later. Skinner’s group will be on the field on Sunday. Ghee will report to Indianapolis on Saturday with other cornerbacks and safeties. The secondary players will be tested through Tuesday.

New home sales hit record low were partly to blame, home sales have fallen for three straight months despite sweeping government support. Economists were already worried that an improvement in sales in the second half of last year could falter as various government support programs are withdrawn. “There is no doubt that January and February are going to be messy months for housing, given the severe weather conditions, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that the housing sector has taken another big step back, even with the government aid,” Jennifer Lee, a senior economist at BMO Capi-

tal Markets, said in a research note. January’s weakness was evident in all regions except the Midwest, where sales posted a 2.1 percent increase. Sales were down 35 percent in the Northeast, 12 percent in the West and almost 10 percent in the South. The drop in sales pushed the median sales price down to $203.500. That was down 5.6 percent from December’s median sales price of $215,600, and off 2.4 percent from year-ago prices. New home sales for all of 2009 had fallen by almost 23 percent to 374,000, the worst year on record.

The National Association of Home Builders is forecasting that sales will rise to more than 500,000 sales this year, an improvement from 2009 but still far below the boom years of 2003 through 2006 when builders clocked more than 1 million new home sales per year. January’s data will increase concerns that the housing rebound could falter in coming months as the government withdraws the support it has used to try to bolster the housing market, which stood at the epicenter of the country’s overall recession, the worst downturn since the 1930s.



America’s thrifts break even in 2009 WASHINGTON (AP) — America’s thrifts posted a small profit last year after two years of losses, evidence the industry may be stabilizing amid the economic recovery. The Office of Thrift Supervision said Wednesday that savings and loans earned $29 million last year, after reporting net losses of $15.9 billion in 2008 and $649 million in 2007. That is the industry’s first annual profit since 2006, though it pales in comparison to the $15.8 billion profits earned that year.

Italy convicts 3 Google execs MILAN (AP) — An Italian court convicted three Google executives of privacy violations Wednesday because they did not act quickly enough to remove an online video that showed sadistic teen bullies pummeling and mocking an autistic boy. The case was being closely watched around the world due to its implications for Internet freedom.

Bernanke: Low rates still needed WASHINGTON (AP) — Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke told Congress on Wednesday that record-low interest rates are still needed to ensure that the economic recovery will last and to help ease the sting of high unemployment. In his twice-a-year report to the House Financial Services Committee, Bernanke struck a confident tone that the recovery should endure. But he also sought to tamp down expectations. The moderate economic growth the Fed expects will lead to only a slow decline in the nation’s nearly doubledigit unemployment rate, he said.

Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood testifies on Capitol Hill this week during hearings on Toyota safety issues.

Toyota hearings continue WASHINGTON (AP) — Toyota chief executive Akio Toyoda came to Washington to publicly apologize to Congress Wednesday for safety lapses that led to widespread recalls for accelerator and braking failures and for a corporate culture that may have made things worse. A House committee chairman said blame must be shared by both Toyota and U.S. safety regulators. Rep. Edolphus Towns, a Democrat and chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, said the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) failed to follow

through aggressively on thousands of complaints dating back a decade about sudden acceleration in Toyota vehicles. NHTSA , which is part of the Transportation Department, “failed the taxpayers and Toyota failed their customers,” Towns declared ahead of eagerly awaited testimony by the company’s chief executive. “Thousands of complaints, multiple investigations, and serial recalls are bad enough. But we now have 39 deaths attributed to sudden acceleration in Toyotas,” Towns said. “To give that horrifying number perspective, there were 27 deaths attributed to

the famous (Ford) Pinto exploding gas tank of the 1970s.” Toyoda, the 53-year-old scion of the Toyoto empire, readied testimony apologizing for the problem and acknowledging that the world’s largest automaker grew too fast to keep up with safety controls. “We pursued growth over the speed at which we were able to develop our people and our organization,” he said. “I regret that this has resulted in the safety issues described in the recalls we face today, and I am deeply sorry for any accidents that Toyota drivers have experienced.”

Freddie loses $7.8 billion WASHINGTON (AP) — Freddie Mac lost $7.8 billion in the final three months of last year, but the mortgage finance company didn’t need a federal cash infusion for the third quarter in a row. Freddie Mac, which has been controlled by federal regulators since September 2008, lost $2.39 a share, the company said Wednesday. The loss included $1.3 billion in dividends paid to the Treasury Department, which

has an almost 80 percent stake in the McLean, Virginia, company. The results were a marked improvement over the fourth quarter 2008 when Freddie lost $23.9 billion, or $7.37 a share. During the most recent quarter, Freddie suffered $7.1 billion in credit losses and a $3.4 billion writedown in low income tax credit investments. That move “increases the likelihood” that the company will require more cash

from the Treasury Department, the company warned in a regulatory filing. Freddie Mac and its sister company Fannie Mae play a vital role in the mortgage market by purchasing mortgages from lenders and selling them to investors. Freddie Mac, for example, purchased or guaranteed about one in four home loans made last year and helped almost 2 million borrowers refinance.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Sales of new homes plunged to a record low in January, underscoring the formidable challenges facing the housing industry as it tries to recover from the worst slump in decades. The Commerce Department reported Wednesday that new home sales dropped 11.2 percent last month to a seasonally adjusted annual sales pace of 309,000 units, the lowest level on records going back nearly a half century. The big drop was a surprise to economists who had expected sales would rise about 5 percent over December’s pace. While winter storms

Stocks rebound on Bernanke comments

NEW YORK (AP) – Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke gave the stock market the tonic it wanted: Interest rates will stay low. Stocks rallied Wednesday and ended a two-day slide after Bernanke sounded an upbeat note about the economy during his semiannual report to Congress. He told the House Financial Services Committee he still expects rates will remain low for an extended period. Investors want to see low-cost borrowing continue to help revive the economy.

Financial stocks helped pull the Dow Jones industrial average up 92 points after the index slid 101 on Tuesday. JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Bank of America Corp. each rose more than 2 percent. Meanwhile, the technology-dominated Nasdaq composite index rose after software company Autodesk Inc. reported stronger earnings and revenue than expected. At the same time, a disappointing report on new home sales brought the latest reminder that a recovery in the economy will be

difficult even with government aid. The Dow rose 91.75, or 0.9 percent, to 10,374.16. The advance pared the Dow’s loss for the week to 28 points. The broader Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 10.64 or 1 percent, to 1,105.24, and the Nasdaq composite index rose 22.46, or 1 percent, to 2,235.90. Bond prices were mixed. The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note was unchanged at 3.69 percent from late Tuesday.

SEC puts new curbs on short-selling WASHINGTON (AP) – Federal regulators on Wednesday imposed new curbs on the practice of short-selling, hoping to prevent spiraling sales sprees in a stock that can stoke market turmoil. The Securities and Exchange Commission, divided along party lines, voted 3-2 at a public meeting to adopt new rules. The rules put in a so-

called circuit breaker for stock prices, restricting for the rest of a trading session and the next one any short-selling of a stock that has dropped 10 percent or more. Short-sellers bet against a stock, in a practice that is legal and widely used on Wall Street. They borrow a company’s shares, sell them and then buy them when the stock falls and

return them to the lender – pocketing the difference in price. The SEC move followed months of wrestling with the controversial issue. The SEC asked for public comment last April on several alternative approaches to restraining short-selling, and a bipartisan group of senators have been pushing the agency to act or face legislation.

Whale kills SeaWorld trainer ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) – A trainer at SeaWorld Orlando died Wednesday after a killer whale attacked her in front of a horrified audience. Orange County Fire Rescue spokesman John Mulhall said paramedics were called to the Shamu Stadium at the theme park resort where they found a worker who could not be revived. Park guest Victoria Biniak told WKMG-TV that the trainer had just finished explaining to the audience the show they were about to see. Biniak told the station the whale suddenly came up from the water, grabbed the trainer around the waist and “thrashed her all around” to the point the trainer’s shoe fell off. “He was thrashing her around pretty good,” Biniak said. “It was violent.” The guests were asked to leave and the park was closed. There have been several previous attacks on

In Nov. 2006, trainer Kenneth Peters, 39, was bitten and held underwater several times by a 7,000-pound killer whale during a show at SeaWorld’s San Diego park.

He escaped with a broken foot. The 17-foot-long orca who attacked him was the dominant female of SeaWorld San Diego’s seven killer whales. She had attacked Peters two other times, in 1993 and 1999.
