THOMASVILLE – For the second year, the Archdale City Council focused on promoting its city Thursday night during its retreat at Colonial Country Club in Thomasville. At last year’s retreat, the City Council established a vision statement that is currently posted on the city’s Web site. This year, the City Council used the opening session to share ideas and brainstorm toward creating ways for Archdale to market itself and the vision statement. Jeff Wells, the city’s planning director, started the discussion by telling the City Council that the city could use Facebook or Twitter to get the word out about the city. Archdale also could partner with local colleges and universities to find ways
‘If we don’t do anything to promote ourselves, we are going to be a city of gas stations on the interstate.’ Tim Williams City council member to better market the city, Wells said. As part of the Thursday night session, the City Council organized into three groups to complete an exercise that identified the city’s top strengths and ways the city can turn those strengths into marketing strategies for Archdale. Strengths indentified by City Council members included the city’s competitive tax rate, transportation, the affordability of Randolph Community College and Creekside Park’s new disc golf course. City Council members said Archdale could better market itself by partnering with the Randolph County Economic Development Commission, the Piedmont Triad Partnership and the Archdale-Trinity Chamber of Commerce. In addition to using Facebook and Twitter, members also agreed the city should improve its Web site, which Councilman Tim Williams said was a “big priority.” “I think it needs to be professionally done,” Williams said. Councilman Eddie Causey suggested that the city could promote its businesses by posting a list of them on the Web site. Other City Council members suggested the city come up with a logo to market Archdale. Councilman Trey Gray said it was important to develop a logo that was marketable for the city, which many members

Officials herald opening of recycling site BY DARRICK IGNASIAK ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER
RANDLEMAN – Dart Container of North Carolina on Thursday opened what is believed to be one of the state’s first foam recycling centers during a ceremony at its facility in Randleman. “Anywhere we have a footprint in the country, we wanted to make sure we opened up a collection site,” said Michael Westerfield, Dart Container corporate director of recycling programs. Tillman “Once we start a program like this, it really takes a life of its own.” The free drop-off site, Dart Container’s 13th recycling site in the country, allows residents, businesses and organizations to recycle foam with a No. 6 on it. Items that can be dropped off at the site include foam cups, plates, takeout containers, egg cartons, and shaped and molded foam often

The block in front of the bag is what 30 pounds of foam cups looks like after compression. used to package electronics. The new site, located at Dart Container’s 3219 Wesleyan Road facility in Randleman, will divert foam from area landfills and allow it to be recycled into new products, such as picture frames and moldings. “The idea is tremendous when
you can take your throwaway stuff, your foam and all of that, and they recycle it and make products with it,” said state Sen. Jerry Tillman, R-Randolph, who was among several elected officials to attend the ceremony Thursday. Westerfield said the opening of foam recycling center is significant because the site will extend the life of landfills and also could bring more jobs to Dart Container’s facility in Randleman, which currently employs 282. The recycling center will be open to the public 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday. “We are going to need people to process this foam,” Westerfield said. “Hopefully, it motivates others just to get involved in the program, too. Every new job collecting material, when it comes to recycling, generates 26 other jobs down the line.” According to its Web site, Dart Container has 13 facilities across the nation. email@example.com | 888-3657
Change in store for ACES Officials consolidate two local after-school programs ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT
GUILFORD COUNTY – The AfterSchool Care Enrichment Services program at Union Hill Elementary School will be combined with the program at Triangle Lake Montessori on March 22 to save money. School district officials also decided this week to combine the Bessemer Elementary program with the one at Falkener Elementary. The Bessemer and Union Hill programs will continue to operate through March 19. The Guilford County Board of Education approved the changes last April to ACES programs with low enrollment to save money. Last month, The ACES programs

anticipated slow recovery of lost jobs in the Piedmont Triad, said Jean Reece, ACES director. “The global economic downturn and rising unemployment in our community have resulted in fewer families needing, or being able to afford, after-school care for their children,” Reece said. “The consolidations allow us to use our limited program funds more effectively and are necessary to ensure the success of ACES.” Parents have been grateful that their children can continue in the program with more students of their own age, Reece said. “Falkener and Triangle Lake are excited to welcome these new ACES students, and we know the transition will be smooth,” Reece said.

Davidson Democrats get into election game BY PAUL B. JOHNSON ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

sembly in 1968, Soles is the state’s longest continuously serving lawmaker. Joe Cheshire, an attorney representing Soles, said his client will serve the remainder of his term. Cheshire has said his client was acting in self-defense when he shot Thomas Kyle Blackburn. “He did feel like his house was under attack and he was under attack,” Cheshire said. The felony charge would have carried up to two years and seven months in prison if Soles, with a previously clean criminal record, had been convicted at trial.

Senator pleads guilty to misdemeanor WHITEVILLE (AP) – North Carolina’s longest-serving lawmaker won’t serve jail time after pleading guilty Thursday to misdemeanor assault for shooting a former client in a case that earlier had been deemed a felony. Columbus County Superior Court Judge D. Jack Hooks accepted the guilty plea from Sen. R.C. Soles, DColumbus, and fined Soles $1,000. Soles had been indicted last month on a felony assault charge. The state constitution would have disqualified Soles from public office had he been convicted of a felony. First elected to the General As-
Four Republicans, including incumbent David Grice and former sheriff Gerald Hege, have filed as well. Jeff Switzer, Jason Hedrick and Ronald Swicegood filed Thursday as Democrats for the Board of Commissioners, while Democrat Phil Olshinski filed Wednesday. Ten Republicans have filed to run for the four commissioner seats on the ballot in the fall general election. Gary James Bowers filed as a Democratic candidate for Davidson County Register of Deeds on Thursday. Incumbent Republican David Rickard filed earlier this month. In Guilford County, attorney Joseph D. “Joe” Floyd filed Thursday for the Superior Court seat in Judicial District 18D. Floyd has practiced law for the last 15 years with his father, Joe D. Floyd Sr., and his sister, Kimberly H. Floyd, in Guilford and surrounding counties. The party primaries are May 4, with the general election Nov. 2.

“It will not affect his political career in the state Senate in any way or his license as a lawyer in any way,” Cheshire said. Authorities said Soles shot Blackburn, 22, after two intruders kicked in the front door of the lawmaker’s secluded Tabor City home last August. Blackburn wasn’t badly hurt. After the incident, Blackburn filed an affidavit asking prosecutors not to charge Soles with a crime. Attorney General Roy Cooper’s office handled Soles’ prosecution after the local district attorney stepped aside because of his long ties to the powerful lawmaker.

liams said. At the end of the discussion, the City Council agreed to look into creating a professionally done logo for the city first and potentially hiring a “communications” employee, as well as getting more involved with the three economic development agencies. email@example.com | 888-3657

Lawmaker apologizes for remarks in speech RALEIGH (AP) – A Republican state senator apologized on Thursday after a newspaper reported that he made comments about gay and black influence in Raleigh. The controversy started when the Statesville Record & Landmark reported that Sen. Jim

US economic strategy now is to hope for a miracle In this time of economic distress and uncertainty, the best investment you can make is the most basic – food. Recently, President Obama has been reassuring America that the worst of the recession is over and a second Great Depression is no longer a concern. His positive spin is reminiscent of Enron executives assuring their employees that Enron was a solid investment right up to the day the company went bust. President Obama’s company, the United States, is bankrupt and is borrowing and printing money to pay its bills. Our leaders may be oblivious to reality or they may simply be blowing smoke and hoping for a miracle. What they are not doing is acting responsibly, cutting spending and demonstrating to the world that America is getting its fiscal house in order. Creditors have caught on to the fraud. China sold $34 billion of U.S. Treasury securities in December and Japan sold $11 billion. Clearly our largest creditors no longer find America a good credit risk. The result of the Federal Reserve putting trillions more dollars into circulation will be the collapse of the dollar’s value. It could be a relatively gradual process through accelerating in-

Perhaps it’s time for a DAV office in High Point
John Wesley College begins T new era erving as president of a college with an enrollment of less than 150 that is struggling financially is one of the toughest jobs in High Point. Just ask Brian Donley, who retired after serving two decades as president in 2008. Ask Joel Key, the retired Methodist minister and former chairman of the board of trustees at JWC, who served the last 18 months as interim president. That’s why Larry D. McCullough, who becomes the college’s ninth president March 1, is going to need all the support the board, the JWC faculty, staff, students and alumni and the greater High Point community can muster. The charter reads “1932,” but John Wesley College’s roots can be traced to May 1903 and Greensboro Bible and Literary College. Among the college’s names were The Apostolic Holiness University (1913), People’s Bible School (after the college closed in 1931 and was reborn in 1932), People’s Bible College (1949) before it became John Wesley College (1956) and moved to its present campus in 1980. McCullough vowed Feb. 22 “to achieve the best possible results by doing the right things at the right time” at the college that offers associates degrees, bachelor’s degrees, and a five-year Bachelor of Theology concentration through its Bible/theology, general education and professional education divisions. We wish McCullough and all the John Wesley College folks the best as this new journey begins.
God and a record of their theological insights and reflections. The Bible has challenging passages that reflect the theology of the authors more than the nature and character of God. We must study Scripture critically, analyzing the historical context and the complex ways the biblical texts came together. The Bible should not be worshiped or mindlessly followed. God gave us the capacity to reason and expects us to engage our minds, hearts, conscience and personal experience in the discernment of Scripture and the pursuit of faith. We should always be open to new revelation and understanding. We should recognize that science is an instrument of God’s truth. Forty years of science have led to a consensus that same-gender attraction is not a disorder but rather a naturally occurring and, for the most part, unchangeable variation of sexuality and does no harm to individuals or society. It has existed in all races
he Disabled American Veterans (DAV) organization has an office located in Greensboro at the railway depot on E. Washington Street. This office is staffed by all volunteers, and they are there to help veterans with claims and other benefits veterans might be entitled to receive. We would like very much to open a DAV office in High Point soon because the Greensboro office has reached the point of “work overload.” We will need volunteers to work here. I hope people in High Point will give some thought to volunteering some of their extra time toward helping veterans. The DAV is a nonprofit organization made up of more than 1.3 million U.S. American veterans who suffered some degree of disability while serving in time of war or armed conflict. The DAV was founded in 1920 and chartered by the U.S. Congress. It is dedicated to a single purpose of building betters lives for disabled veterans and their families. Thanks to The High Point Enterprise for a wonderful evening of great music presented by the United States Air Force Heritage of America Band. There was a full house at the High Point Theatre to enjoy the wide selection of music. I like John Philip Sousa’s music, and the band did play “Stars and Stripes Forever.” The band also played music written by Gershwin, Hammerstein/Rodgers and Berlin. Staff Sgt. Lacey Stokes played Artie Shaw’s Clarinet Concerto. All seniors remember this music and she played so well. Stokes earned a bachelor of music degree at Ohio University. Lt. Rafael Toro-Quinones is the conductor, and the band’s home base is Langley Air Force Base, Va. We enjoyed this so much. Maybe in the near future, the United States Marine Corps Band and the United States Army Band will come to High Point or the Triad. It would be a great opportunity for our area to enjoy the music of military bands. All military band members are great musicians, and they play a wide variety of music.
If you need transportation to Veterans Affairs medical clinics, call (336) 510-7508. DAV Chapter No. 20 has vans that go to Durham, Salisbury and WinstonSalem clinics. This is free service for veterans. The VETERAN’S trips are paid for from the funds of the DAV organizaVIEWS tion. Veterans needing the service should try to give Stan the DAV a few days notice Spangle Sr. before your appointment ■■■ time. This should not be a problem since the VA notifies you in plenty of time prior to your appointment time. I want to mention that the VA’s pension program is targeted at veterans who served this country during wartime but have “fallen into” poverty. The same program is there for widows of veterans. The VA program is called “disability pension,” but this is a bit misleading because the person does not have to be disabled to receive a pension. The program provides a monthly check to veterans or widows of veterans age 65 or older to bring their income up to a certain level. A veteran can have an income of $10,579 per year and qualify. Widows of veterans can have an income of $7,094 per year. If these people are homebound or in need of extra assistance, they can qualify for more benefit funds. Gordon Croft, a veteran of the Korean War, had his income jump from $6,816 a year to $12,564 when he qualified for this program. He suffers from arthritis, emphysema, osteoporosis and other conditions. Remember there are certain requirements, and if you are a veteran or a widow of a veteran, you will want to check this out. The VA toll-free number is (800) 827-1000. God bless America and all other nations. Semper Fi. STAN SPANGLE SR. is a 21-year veteran of the Marine Corps, serving in Korea and Vietnam. He’s a member of numerous veterans organizations.

Afghan army improving, but not enough
Missile kills Pakistani Taliban leader ISLAMABAD – A Pakistani Taliban commander wanted in the deadly 2006 bombing of the U.S. consulate in Karachi was killed in a suspected CIA missile strike in northwest Pakistan, officials said Thursday – the latest blow in a crackdown on militants in the region. Mohammed Qari Zafar was among at least 13 people killed Wednesday when three missiles slammed into a compound and a vehicle in the Dargah Mandi area of the North Waziristan tribal region on the border with Afghanistan, two Pakistani intelligence officials said.
Sunni party will contest Iraq vote BAGHDAD – A prominent Sunni lawmaker announced Thursday that his party would participate in parliamentary elections, less than a week after pulling it from the race. The decision effectively lifts the lingering threat that minority Sunnis would boycott the vote, which the U.S. hopes will bolster national reconciliation efforts and pave the way for American combat forces to go home.
Small plane crashes in Peru, killling seven LIMA, Peru – Peruvian officials say a small plane has crashed near the famed ancient geoglyphs known as the Nazca Lines, killing all seven on board. Local airport chief Enrique Gamboa says the Cessna 206 was carrying three Chileans and four Peruvians. The plane went down Thursday inside the tourism zone in Peru’s dry coastal desert, where indigenous groups etched mysterious figures in the sand centuries ago.
MARJAH, Afghanistan (AP) – When U.S. Marines find suspicious powder that could be made into a bomb, they probe it with sophisticated tests. Afghan soldiers have their own method – they taste it. The operation against the Taliban in Marjah has been a major trial for the Afghan military, showing the army is still far from capable of operating on its own. But its soldiers appear to be improving – even if they don’t always do things by the book. When soldiers taste the white powder, for example, they are testing to see if it is salty, an attribute of ammonium nitrate, a main ingredient in roadside bombs. And they do it even though they have access to the U.S. testing methods.
A U.S. Marine and Afghan soldier help cover for a U.S. Army Task Force Pegasus helicopter performing a medevac mission recently in Marjah. Afghans make up about 2,000 of the 6,000 troops fighting in the southern town, with thousands more operating in the surrounding Nad Ali district – the biggest Afghan contribution to an offensive of the eight-year war. They’ve searched houses, identified suspected Taliban, helped detect bombs.

Italian oil slick reaches key farm center ROME – Sludge from an oil spill snaked down the Po River on Thursday to reach the province of Parma, raising fears that the home of Italy’s famed prosciutto, parmesan cheese and other agricultural staples might be at risk of water contamination. Italian farm lobby Coldiretti insisted Italy’s food chain was safe since the Po is not being used for irrigation these days. But another group of farm owners, Confagricultura, warned that the spring planting season – particularly for water-intensive rice crops – might be at risk unless clean water is ensured.
Fire kills 21 in Bangladesh factory DHAKA, Bangladesh – A fire raced through a sweater factory near the Bangladeshi capital late Thursday, killing at least 21 people and injuring dozens more, officials and television reports said. Fire fighter official Abdur Rashid told The Associated Press by phone from the scene that rescuers recovered dozens of victims from the six-story building, which was engulfed in flames. Twentytwo of them were either “critically injured” or dead, he said.
India, Pakistan officials hold first talks NEW DELHI – India and Pakistan held their first official talks Thursday since the 2008 Mumbai siege, with both sides saying they wanted to rebuild trust shattered in that attack but acknowledging that the meeting was just a first step toward a renewed peace process. The four-hour meeting between the nucleararmed rivals ranged from shared water resources to the status of the disputed Himalayan region of Kashmir. But terrorism was the focus of the discussions – an emphasis Pakistan quickly made clear would only slow further talks.
Court frees ex-Navy, Air Force chiefs ANKARA, Turkey – Prosecutors released the former chiefs of the navy and air force and another top general late Thursday without immediately charging them with being involved in an alleged coup plot to overthrow the Islamic-rooted government, saying they were unlikely to flee. Twenty current and former senior officers, including five admirals and three generals, have been formally charged with plotting several years ago to topple Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s government, and ordered held in jail.

World Relief of High Point holds appreciation dinner BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER
HIGH POINT – One of the largest hurdles for refugees who relocate to the states from countries filled with war and oppression is to find employment when they arrive. World Relief of High Point held an employer appreciation dinner Thursday night for companies in the Triad that employ refugees who have come to the U.S. through the organization. “The employers are so important to us, and we couldn’t do what we do without a place to send our refugees to work,” said Jenny Carson, employment specialist for the organization. “So we wanted to have a time to show appreciation for them.” Aramark Food Services at High Point University received World Relief’s 2009 Employer of the Year at the event. Aramark has 36 refugees employed through the campus’ food services. Blaire Areaux, retail operations manager for the university’s food services,
said she would encourage other employers to hire refugees as well. “We’ve found them to be extremely hard working and reliable,” she said. “I think refugees are often overlooked and equated with illegal aliens even though their immigration status is completely different. I think it’s important to give them a chance to get their feet on the ground.” Other employers invited to the event were Perdue, Swatchcraft, and High Point Regional Hospital. The children of several refugee families sang songs from their native country, Burma, at the event. The children represented two different ethnic groups in Burma - Karenn and Karenni. Burmese, Iraqi and other ethnic foods also were served. Mark Kadel, director for the organization said finding employment was a crucial aspect for refugees who had been through devastating situations. Often, refugees hold established careers such as a doctor or a lawyer in their native countries but

Officials approve naming gym for Raybon BY DAVID NIVENS ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER
GUILFORD COUNTY – School district officials gave first round approval Thursday to naming the auxiliary gymnasium at Ragsdale High School for the man who spent the better part of 40 years there. After no one offered an alternative name, the Board of Education voted 10-0 to post for public comment for 30 days naming the gym for retired veteran coach and ath-
letic director 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, who was organizing a wrestling tournament Thursday in Greensboro, with the nomination earlier in the school year during a celebration of the school’s 50th anniversary. 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 nomination letter from the school booster club credits Raybon with “walking the extra mile, be it for school, community or state needs.” A member of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame, Raybon’s teams won three state championshíps in wrestling. He has directed numerous 3A state wrestling tournaments as well as approximately
300 local, sectional, regional, and invitational wrestling tournaments. During his career, Raybon was physical education and special education teacher. He also taught social studies. As a coach, he instructed students in several team and individual sports. Raybon also helped plan and organize the Jamestown Youth League and also coached numerous teams. firstname.lastname@example.org | 888-3626
Judge denies request to postpone murder trial Inside...
Mental competency still an issue. 3B
BY PAT KIMBROUGH ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER
HIGH POINT – A judge has denied a South Carolina man’s request to delay his first-degree murder trial in a case that originated with a fatal shooting at a southeast High Point house more than five years ago. In an order filed Wednesday, Superior Court Judge
Ronald E. Spivey of Forsyth County declined to continue the March 22 trial date for RobWilliams ert Demetrius Williams, one of six people from Bennettsville, S.C., charged and the first to stand trial in the Oct. 22, 2004, death of Anthony Briggman Jr. at 707 Hines St. in an apparent drug-related robbery that went bad. In motions argued last week, Williams’ court-appointed attorney, Barry Snyder of Greensboro,

also asked for state funds to hire a psychological expert to evaluate his client’s competency, claiming that he had exhibited signs of mental illness. Spivey declined the request, noting that Williams, 21, underwent a court-appointed examination at a state hospital in December 2009 in which he was found competent to stand trial. Experts there determined Williams had the ability to work with his lawyer in preparing a defense and that his purported symptoms of mental illness were “contrived
or knowingly fabricated,” the order stated. Williams’ trial has been delayed several times since his 2006 arrest at the request of the defense, most recently in October 2009 when a judge ordered him evaluated after he appeared in court the day his trial was scheduled to begin and said he was “hearing voices.” Spivey granted another motion from Snyder for additional state money to hire an investigator, approving up to $1,000 despite the fact that another judge granted $2,500 for the same purpose in July

2008. The order noted that Snyder apparently was seeking an investigator to examine the same issue he did two years ago: a possible alibi defense for Williams. Spivey issued another order requiring the defendant to give notice of a defense of “alibi, duress, entrapment, insanity, mental infirmity, diminished capacity, self-defense, accident, automatism, involuntary intoxication or voluntary intoxication” and to disclose the identity of any potential alibi witnesses to the state. firstname.lastname@example.org | 888-3531

Judge denies request. 1B
BY PAT KIMBROUGH ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER
HIGH POINT â€“ A judgeâ€™s order brought some clarity to Robert Williamsâ€™ case, but didnâ€™t settle one issue â€“ his mental competency. The ruling granted funds for an expert to help defense attorneys with a possible competency hearing for Williams. Judge Ronald Spivey allowed the expenditure of up to $2,500 for an expert witness to assist in three areas â€“ to potentially testify at a hearing and to assist in interpreting psychological information and preparing mitigating evidence for purposes of trial. Spivey determined that such a hearing will be required by statute. Williamsâ€™ attorney, Barry Snyder, has argued in motions and in court that Williams has exhibited bizarre behavior that calls his competency into question. In court documents, Snyder claimed that, while he was with his family in Bennettsville, S.C., last month, Williams told his sister â€œthe High Point jail had put chips into his headâ€? that could be activated at a hospital and enable jailers â€œto come after him.â€? At one point, Williams wandered from his sisterâ€™s home and was found 12 miles away, walking
along a highway â€œwith a large staff like the Bible character Mosesâ€? with no clothing except â€œa shirt wrapped around his groin area in such a way as to imitate the dress of an-

Snyder claimed. His family had Williams committed to a psychiatric hospital. At a hearing last week, prosecutors argued that a state hospitalâ€™s diagnosis that Williams was malingering indicated that he is competent and that he had faked psychotic behavior to avoid going to trial. The victim in the case, 22-year-old Anthony Briggman, was from Central Islip, N.Y. Another person, Terrence Dennis Tyson, was wounded by gunfire in the same incident but survived. email@example.com | 888-3531

After three months, he left me a message saying he had to go out of state for work and would call when he got to where he was going. All I got was silence. Days turned into weeks and eventually into five months. Even though I loved Mitch and he had claimed he loved me, I started to accept that things were over between us. Just as I was getting over him, he called. He told me he still loves me and is sorry he hurt me. Something does not add up. He doesnâ€™t have a cell phone, so thereâ€™s no way to reach him. When I call him at the number he gave me, heâ€™s never there. I care for him, but something is not sitting well. What should I do? â€“ Mystified in Bath, Pa. Dear Mystified: Pay attention to your intuition, which is trying to tell you that Mitch is a magician. Having pulled one disappearing act on you, he is likely to perform another.
