TRIAD – Another rain and snow system similar to last week’s snowfall is expected to move through the Triad today with little impact on travel or daily commutes, according to the National Weather Service. Light rainfall should begin late this morning, changing into a wet snowfall by tonight. Temperatures will remain at or above freezing, shifting from the mid-30s to the lower 40s by the afternoon, said NWS meteorologist Jonathan Blaes. Because precipitation is expected to be light and temperatures should remain above freezing, little accumulation will occur, Blaes said. “Given the light precipitation and warm temperatures, the only accumulation we should see will be on grassy surfaces or on the tops of cars,” he said. “We’ll maybe see a halfinch of a slushy coating on those areas.” It’s possible that some patches of black ice could be scattered across roadways Wednesday morning as temperatures dip into the lower 30s overnight, but the effect on travel should be minimal, Blaes added. Lingering flurries may hit the Triad Wednesday morning east of High Point, but the below-average temperatures that have lingered through February should finally give way to spring weather this weekend. Blaes said temperatures will rise into the mid 50s by Saturday. “Once we get into March, it’s very difficult to get snow in this part of the world,” he said. “Although we’ve seen snow in the third week of March before, it is increasingly more difficult.” Chris Thompson, High Point’s public services director, said the scattered snow flurries and freezing rainfalls continue to create and worsen potholes on city streets caused by the harsh winter this

Anglers, boaters line up for first day on Randleman Lake BY PAUL B. JOHNSON ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

RANDOLPH COUNTY – Lonnie Carlton of Randleman smiled broadly as he and his friend John Bryant of Liberty prepared to unload their fishing boat at Randleman Regional Reservoir Monday morning. “I’ve been waiting for this ever since they said they were going to build the lake,” Carlton said as he made history by becoming one of the first people to put into the lake at the new marina along Adams Farm Road in Randolph County. After seven decades of planning and years of construction, the lake opened to recreation for fishermen and boaters at 8 a.m. Monday. Some anglers arrived Sunday afternoon and camped out overnight so they could be among the first fishermen on the water, said Lake Warden Randy Howard. By 9 a.m. Monday, the picturesque lake lined by woods, farms and the backyards of rural homes was dotted with a variety of fishing boats. The Tshaped wooden pier, near the launches for boats at the marina, was lined with more than a dozen men and women tossing lures. To mark its inaugural week, the reservoir will open all seven days this week. Starting next week, the reservoir will switch to its normal schedule

The opening and closing times for recreation on the lake, which stays open until Nov. 30 this year, will vary with the seasons and daylight saving time. The lake also will open on some Mondays and Tuesdays around holidays. The next major step with the reservoir will come this summer when the first drinking water is scheduled to flow from the lake. The reservoir will become a drinking water source for customers in parts of Randolph County and for five municipalities in Randolph and Guilford counties – High Point, Jamestown, Archdale, Greensboro and Randleman.

Randleman Regional Reservoir opened Monday to fishing and boating for the first time. The lake has been decades in the making to become a drinking source for five cities and Randolph County.

HIGH POINT – The five largest attractions for tourism in High Point have changed throughout the past decade, with some attractions bringing more guests to the city and some bringing less, according to figures from the High Point Convention and Visitor’s Bureau. High Point University, for example, has increased the number of tourists passing through the city as its student population has grown. Don Scarborough, vice president of communi-

ty relations for the university, said on averBRING IT a g e , HOME about 40 famiReviving lies of tourism in High prospecPoint tive stu■■■ dents come to tour the campus per day, and the university is giving hundreds of more tours this year than it did last year. Its Presidential Scholarship Weekend and Family and Alumni Weekend together brought 2,000 people to the city this month with an estimated economic impact of about $600,000. Charlotte Young, presi-

dent and CEO of the bureau, said visitation events at the university, the High Point Market, the Showtime textile event, youth sporting events and trade shows and conventions attract the most visitors to the city. Other categories of tourism, including furniture shopping, parks, lakes and performing arts events also draw a large number of visitors. Some of those events, however, have struggled during the economic recession, cutting hotel room night bookings, which provides thousands of dollars to the CVB each year. The High Point Market reported 85,708 attendees at the spring 2007 event, while 75,537 attended the spring 2009 event. Attendance in trade

LEXINGTON – While overcrowded classrooms may be a constant worry for Davidson County school officials, that’s not the case at one school. Wallburg Elementary School could still hold as many as 200 additional students, Jay Temple, executive director of auxiliary services for Davidson County Schools, told the Davidson County Board of Education Monday night. School officials were approached last year by concerned Wallburg parents who requested that the system redraw district lines because of overcrowding. With Wallburg Elementary at 907 students, Temple said the school has a regular classroom, two mobile classrooms, a large exceptional children’s classroom that could be made into two classrooms and two mobile classroom sites available for additional students. He said the space could hold an estimated 205 students.

RALEIGH (AP) – The state Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission has hired an outside group to conduct a financial appraisal of North Carolina’s liquor system, Gov. Beverly Perdue said Monday in the strongest sign yet she’s giving serious consideration to privatization. The commission agreed late Friday to pay up to $175,000 to a Chicago-based firm to calculate the stateowned wholesale distribution system and hundreds of local ABC retail stores – much like appraising a house before it’s sold. Valuation Research Corp. also will estimate how much North Carolina could generate if the wholesale and retail functions were sold to a single or multiple vendors for up to 10 years, according to

“In taking into consideration with what’s going on at Wallburg, if the economy turns around and we continue to have the growth, there is still room in that facility itself to handle some students for a little bit of time,” Temple said. “That’s what you need to know.” Temple said there has been no growth in student population during the first half of the year. Wallburg Elementary had 917 students for the first month enrollment for the 2008-09 school year, according to the school system. In other business, the Davidson County Board of Education named Stephanie D. Hall and Paula L. Justice as interim principals and part-time teachers at Ledford Middle School. They replace Sloan Denny who was named last month as the school’s interim principal. The school board also promoted Gary Buie from interim transportation director to transportation director.

In ruined Haiti schools, educators see opportunity PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti – After seven weeks with seven kids huddled under a shelter of tarps and bed sheets on the median strip of a busy road, Lissithe Delomme says the Haitian government can’t reopen schools fast enough. The Jan. 12 quake dealt a devastating blow to Haiti’s already struggling schools: More than 80 percent in the earthquake zone were damaged or destroyed. All in Port-au-Prince and the other affected towns remain closed.

Europe storm death toll at 62; France hardest hit PARIS – Rescue workers in dinghies cruised flooded streets on France’s Atlantic coast Monday, searching for people still trapped in their homes by storms that smashed through concrete sea walls and killed at least 62 people across Western Europe. The storm, called Xynthia, blew into France early Sunday with hurricane-force winds, flooding ports, destroying homes and leaving 1 million households without electricity. It also battered Belgium, Portugal, Spain and parts of Germany and snarled train and air travel throughout the continent.

Putin: Russia to build new strategic bomber MOSCOW – Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said Monday that Russia will build a new strategic bomber, a move that comes as the nation tries to upgrade its aging military arsenal. Putin said in televised remarks that work on the bomber must follow the development of a prospective stealth fighter, which made its maiden flight in January and was hailed by the government as a big step in military modernization efforts.

Uruguay inaugurates ex-rebel leader as president MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay – A former guerrilla leader who won the trust of voters with his homespun manner and promises to govern as a conciliator became Uruguay’s new president Monday. Jose Mujica, 74, is the second consecutive leftist president in a country which, until 2005, had been ruled by right-wing parties or the military for 150 years.

The gear and expertise are a down payment on help the United States intends to provide following the massive quake in Chile on Saturday. Clinton was making a brief stop today in the capital as part of a Latin American trip

rearranged because of the disaster. “We are bringing some of what they asked for which are satellite phones,� Clinton said. “One of their biggest problems has been communications as we found in Haiti in those days after the quake,� Clinton said. She noted that Chile’s communications system was much more advanced before the quake than Haiti’s, but she said communication with hard-hit Concepcion is difficult.

VIENNA – Russia’s president said Moscow was ready to consider new sanctions on Iran for its nuclear defiance on Monday and the chief of the International Atomic Energy Agency warned that he cannot confirm that all of Tehran’s atomic activities are peaceful. President Dmitry Medvedev emphasized that he still hoped for a settlement with Iran on nuclear issues that would negate any need for a fourth set of U.N. Security Council sanctions.

CONCEPCION, Chile (AP) – Rescuers found signs of life in the wreckage of a 15-story building Monday as the world offered aid to victims of an earthquake that killed more than 700 people. Looters roamed the streets even after troops and police arrested dozens of people for violating a curfew. The toll of dead rose to 723, with 19 others missing, the National Emergency Office announced, in a magnitude-8.8 quake that President Michelle Bachelet called “an emergency without parallel in Chile’s history.� Some coastal towns were almost obliterated – first shaken by the quake, then slammed by a tsunami that carried whole houses inland and crushed others into piles of sticks. Shocked survivors were left without power, water or food. In Concepcion, the biggest city near the epicenter, rescuers heard the knock of trapped victims inside a toppled 70-unit apartment building.

Henry Ford wouldn’t like state of car industry I am amazed at the auto companies needing help. I bet Henry Ford would turn over in his grave, if he knew, after selling over a billion cars since the Model T, they would cry they are not making enough money. So our government gives GM and Chrysler bailouts and loans Ford public money. Give me a break. It’s not just Toyota that can’t get it right. I went to get my car inspected and was told there were a couple of things the computer said was wrong. So until I get it fixed I can’t get my tags. A couple of years ago, when we found out North Carolina was going to do away with the stickers, we were all happy. Now they put a computer on your car, and the computer talks to the man servicing your car ... and it costs more. The results of the computer are supposed to go directly to Raleigh, and then you can buy your tags, which also cost more. Who is to say these computers are correct? There has to be millions of them all over North Carolina. If they couldn’t pick out a big glitch like the electronic brain of the acceleration on the Toyota that has killed people and injured lots of people, how do we know our present computer is not just another money maker for the state?

High Pointers should support mall, other local businesses

I have been a lifelong resident of High Point, except for four years away at college. I proudly call High Point my home. I have seen many changes over the years, some positive and some negative. I am constantly defending my hometown to other people, both from High Point and the surrounding cities in the Triad area. In a recent letter, a reader called Oak Hollow Mall a “black eye of High Point’s progress.” It is embarrassing that a city of 100,000 people cannot support a mall. I, for one, hate driving to Greensboro for anything, but especially for shopping. If the residents of this city do not begin supporting not only our mall but also our other local businesses, then all of us are going to begin driving to Greensboro for everything. By not supporting our mall, even in its current situation, it perpetuates a cycle. If the residents of High Point do not shop in High Point, then retailers cannot stay in High Point, nor can they offer the quantity and quality of merchandise desired by the people.

OUR VIEW

oters of Randolph County have a chance today to demonstrate their fiscally conservative tendencies, and they can do that by voting yes in a referendum on raising the county’s sales tax rate. Randolph voters go to the polls today in a special referendum on whether to raise the county’s sales tax by one-quarter of one percent. If approved, the sales tax in Randolph would rise to a total of 8 percent (5.75 state and 2.25 county), or 8 cents on each retail dollar of sales. At first blush, of course, voting for a sales tax increase might not sound like a stand for conservatism. But fiscal prudence in this case says that the proposed sales tax hike makes sense. The extra penny that would be paid on each $4 of retail sales (except for exempted food, gasoline and medicine) in Randolph would raise about $2 million a year in extra revenue. An extra 2 cents on the county property tax rate would be required to generate that amount of revenue, and county property owners already bear a significant portion of the tax burden. Also, the additional sales tax would be paid by the hundreds of thousands of visitors to Randolph County each year. But the purpose for which the money will be spent is even more so an indication of fiscal prudence and conservatism. The additional tax revenue would be used over the next four or five years to fund improvements to Randolph Community College to boost efforts to retrain unemployed workers throughout the county and region. And for certain, with an 11 percent unemployment rate, such an effort is needed in Randolph County. RCC would use the money to renovate a former Klaussner Furniture warehouse purchased by the county and college in 2008. The college would enlarge its machining program, add a specialized and customized employee training center, add an industrial engineering program (only the third in the state) and double space for continuing education programs. The plan also calls for paying for these improvements as the extra tax money would come available, meaning there will be no bonded indebtedness or interest payments required. Sometimes fiscal conservatism involves saying no to additional spending and tax hikes. But in a case such as this, fiscal prudence says otherwise. Sales tax is a better revenue-generating approach than property tax, and investing in local programs to retrain willing workers for new tasks is much better than allowing them to languish among the unemployed.

Three questions loom in state’s political future

A

t the present moment, with so much going on, it may be helpful to consider North Carolina’s political future by asking three big questions: • Can North Carolina compete? • Will former Gov. Mike Easley be indicted? • Will Republicans take over the state Legislature? These are not unrelated questions. The first is, in many ways, the toughest one to answer – and, no, it’s not some oblique reference to the prowess of the Tar Heel basketball team. Our state’s political class has yet to grasp the reality that North Carolina is in the bottom half of the United States on key measures of fiscal, economic and social health. In December, the state’s unemployment rate was 11.2 percent, one of the worst in the nation. North Carolina also had a worse-than-average recession a decade ago, and a weaker-than-average recovery from that previous recession. In short, North Carolina is no longer an economic leader. It’s a laggard. Some of the state’s challenges are far beyond the control of government. If any politician tells you he can effectively block trade or technology that render existing businesses uncompetitive, he is telling you a fib. But the truth is that North Carolina hasn’t made it sufficiently attractive for entrepreneurs to create new businesses to replace declining industries. Our cost structure is uncompetitive. While our relative lack of unionization is attractive, our costs are higher in other areas, such as taxes, energy and regulation. Our marginal income tax rates are among the highest in the country. Big firms can escape them by negotiating incentive packages for occasional relocations. Start-up firms cannot. If candidates for federal, state and local office aren’t talking bluntly and frequently

about these fundamental issues of competitiveness during the 2010 election cycle, North Carolina voters should ignore them and find better leaders. There is no clearer illustration of the state’s leaderOPINION ship deficit than to consider the career of former Gov. John Mike Easley. While North Hood Carolina was falling behind, ■■■ Easley was flying around or hiding out. If he had devoted as much attention to crafting innovative policies and managing state government as he devoted to his personal recreation and finances, perhaps things would be a little better. As it is, Easley is currently the target of a wide-ranging federal corruption probe. But if North Carolina Republicans think they need only ride an anti-Easley, anti-corruption bandwagon into legislative power in Raleigh, they are mistaken. While some voters will have scandal on their minds in November, most will be thinking about the first question – about whether North Carolina can recover its competitiveness. If GOP candidates can communicate a coherent, persuasive message of reform and growth to those voters, they can prevail. The math isn’t impossible. Republicans need to win nine of about 20 competitive seats with Democratic incumbents to take the N.C. House. They must win six Democratic seats in the N.C. Senate, a feasible scenario thanks to retirements and other recent political developments. These are three big questions in North Carolina politics. I guess we’ll start getting answers soon.

Teen falls into open sewage pit, dies SMITHTOWN, N.Y. – A snow plow might have jarred loose the cover of a sewage pit where a teenager doughnut shop worker fell and died while taking out the trash, investigators said Monday. Amiri Zeqiri, 17, slipped into an open cesspool behind a Dunkin’ Donuts Sunday night in Smithtown, about 40 miles east of New York City, police said. There usually was a manhole cover over the cesspool, a hole in the ground that collects waste from toilets and sinks, they said.

The annual survey found the number of teens in grades 9 through 12 who reported drinking alcohol in the last month rose 11 percent last year.

Now, he’s trying to walk off a marginally high cholesterol count. Although Obama took the presidential motorcade to a speech Monday, he decided to walk back through Lafayette Park. A day earlier, his doctor recommended he lower his cholesterol. Obama told reporters he needed to “make sure that I’m walking off some of that cholesterol.

Clearing the air

BY PAT KIMBROUGH ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – The City Council on Monday tabled proposed traffic ordinance amendments that would tighten up parking regulations on a particular type of street. During its meeting, the council elected to send proposed changes that would define ribbon paved streets and add them to a list of places where parking is prohibited back to committee for further study. Some parking tickets issued by police officers have been tossed out of court because the ordinance doesn’t adequately address ribbon paved streets, which have no curbing and guttering. The police department asked that the ordinance be clarified, but city officials said the language of the proposed amendments needed fine-tuning. Council members said they had concerns about the proposal, as did residents. “I think this type of proposal will create more harm than good, and I think you should consider streets on a case-bycase basis instead of just a wholesale ban,” said Wayne Quigley of Foggy Lane, which could fit the description of a ribbon paved street. “I have a onecar driveway, and you banned me from parking in my yard. ... I have no place to park my second car.” Most city streets would not be considered ribbon paved because they have curbing and gutters. Parking on ribbon paved streets or their shoulders can cause problems, as parked vehicles can obstruct already narrow travel lanes, officials said. Also Monday, the council: • Authorized the city attorney to begin condemnation proceedings for properties at 300 and 302 Old Winston Road that are needed for a project involving the widening of that road. • Adopted an ordinance to close/vacate 1511 Valley Ridge Drive because of numerous minimum housing code violations. The dwelling, owned by New Frontier Investments, has been vacant since November 2009 and repairs have not been made. • Adopted an ordinance to demolish 327 Pickett Place, owned by Jeffrey P. Burcher, which has several code violations, including structural problems with the roof system and porch. pkimbrough@hpe.com | 888-3531

Grant to boost Triad air program BY DAVID NIVENS ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

Dear Miss M.: Women in various stages of nudity are not a “peep show.” They are par for the course in women’s locker rooms everywhere. And yes, there is something you can do: As you pass through on your way in and out, keep your eyes modestly downcast. That way, at most, you will see only a few naked toes. Or visit the gym during hours when the place is not so busy. Dear Abby: I am stationed in Iraq. My husband is home taking care of our two teenagers – a 16-year-old boy and a 14-year-old girl.

My daughter has had several sleepovers at her friends’. On two ADVICE separate occasions, Dear the mothers Abby allowed the ■■■ girls to dye their hair. They did this without first consulting my husband. Am I old-fashioned, or isn’t this something a parent should decide for a 14-year-old? Did the other parents think that it was OK since I wasn’t home to disapprove? My husband is doing an excellent job of parenting while I am deployed, and he would never have allowed her to dye her hair. How should we handle this type of situation? – Mom On Duty In Iraq

AIR GUILFORD

GUILFORD COUNTY — A regional fledgling aviation program has received a $10,000 boost from federal funds. The Guilford County Board of Commissioners is expected to approve as soon as Thursday the transfer from county federal forfeiture funds for the county’s share of operating expenses for the small aircraft shared with five other Triad law enforcement agencies. Commissioners will meet at 5:30 p.m. Thursday in the Old Courthouse in Greensboro. Sheriff BJ Barnes lobbied to get the $100,000, two-seat aircraft based in Guilford County for use in scouting traffic in highway chases

New political group meets ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

HIGH POINT – The new local chapter of the national anti-incumbent political organization Get Out of Our House! will meet this evening and Thursday night. The meetings, open to the public, will start at 6:45 p.m. at Providence Place, 1701 Westchester Drive, through the Town Center main entrance. The nonpartisan group aims to replace all incumbents in the U.S. House of Representatives during this year’s elections.

Going to the gym becomes exercise in embarrassment ear Abby: I just joined a gym, and I love everything about it except for one thing – the ladies’ locker room. I am modest so I use the private changing rooms when getting dressed. There are some women who feel very comfortable walking around in various stages of undress. Not only are they naked, they don’t think twice about bending over to get into their lockers, or standing topless while blow-drying their hair. In a place full of mirrors, seeing all this is difficult to avoid. I don’t want to stop using the locker room because it’s convenient. Is there anything I can do, or must I put up with the peep shows? – Miss Modesty In Princeton, N.J.

courthouse before our actual wedding ceremony – months in advance. Our reason is he will finish graduate school and needs a place to stay – or else it’s back home. The second reason is, if we live in separate households, it will create two sets of household bills. Under one roof we can share the expenses and save ourselves an ample amount of money to put toward our actual ceremony and honeymoon. This is our first marriage and, we hope, our last. We want to make it a memorable one. Does this make sense, and if so, how should we approach our potential guests about our plans to “tie the knot”? – To Do Or Not To Do In Alabama

and looking for criminal suspects. The Sheriff’s Association of Texas owns the airplane through a federal National Law Enforcement and Corrections Technology Center program. The plane offers the agencies an opportunity to check crime scenes and chases when State Highway Patrol aircraft based in Salisbury are unavailable.

Expenses include hanger rental, engine repair funds, fuel and maintenance. The county also pays $6,300 a year for $1 million in pilot liability insurance. The county could be held responsible for any liability claims above $1 million. The sheriff’s department leads a Triad task force and Guilford deputies fly the aircraft for partner agencies who don’t have trained pilots. Partner agencies are Alamance, Davidson, Forsyth, Randolph and Rockingham counties. In other business, Barnes wants approval to use part of a $138,000 federal grant to build three attorney-client interview rooms in the county jail in High Point.

id you ever stop to think just how much you sit during the day? If you did, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d probably be amazed how much time is actually spent on your derrière. The consequence of all this inactivity is also quite amazing and scary, especially when it comes to our health and well-being. According to a Video Consumer Mapping study, American adults spend an average of more than eight hours each day in front of screens, including televisions, computer monitors, cell phones and others. Add the time sitting in the car, spending time in the library, eating at the table, reading and listening to the Sunday sermon, and you can tally up some pretty good buttocks-time. Now, the TV remote has been around for awhile, but these days we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to get up to purchase movie tickets, get our boarding pass, turn off/on the ceiling fan or turn on lights. There are apps for that. We can stay in our cars when we do our banking, pay bills, pick up prescriptions and get our late-night snack, as the drivethrough windows are open late. All this sitting can have a serious negative impact on the way we feel. Some of the health issues include increased risk of heart attack, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes and obesity. Other deleterious effects include low back and neck discomfort; muscle atrophy, which leads to a decrease in metabolism; loss of flexibility; fatigue and a dramatic drop in an enzyme that vacuums fat out of the bloodstream. What to do? Get up every hour and walk around for five minutes; the effect is cumulative. Hand deliver a message to a co-worker instead of e-mailing. Walk the stairs instead of the elevator. Get up and walk around the house during commercial breaks. Pace while on the phone. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t circle the parking lot looking for the closest spot when going to the fitness center. Inactivity physiology or the science of sedentary behavior is quickly becoming an integral part of health care, as it should. The awareness piece starts here. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take the negative effects of a sedentary lifestyle â&#x20AC;Ś sitting down.

Lung disease has many causes

D

ear Dr. Donohue: I appreciate your column, but I take exception to something you keep repeating that makes it hard on people like me. Since childhood, I have had bronchitis and asthma and I have lost count of the number of times I’ve had pneumonia. Recently I have been diagnosed with chronic bronchitis and emphysema. I have never smoked. My husband never smoked. When I started with a new lung specialist, he asked me about smoking twice and sounded skeptical when I told him I was never a smoker. When you call chronic bronchitis and emphysema the “smokers’ ailment,” I get grief from people who take your word as gospel. Will you give people like me a break? – D.T.

BLONDIE

B.C.

Chronic bronchitis and emphysema are the two chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases, COPD. Chronic bronchitis is an ever-present cough due to airway irritation and airways that are filled with pus. Emphysema is dilation and destruction of air sacs – alveoli, the cellophanelike structures through which oxygen passes into the lungs and carbon dioxide exits them. Shortness of breath is its hallmark symptom. The fact is that 90 percent of those with COPD are current or former smokers. You are a victim of numbers. Not all COPD can be traced to smoking. Dusts from grains, cotton and silica can bring on COPD.

Miners often come down with it. Secondhand smoke is another cause. HEALTH Frequent childDr. Paul hood lung Donohue infections ■■■ could be the reason for some cases of COPD. And genes definitely play a role. You get the same reaction that people with cirrhosis get. Most of the public automatically assume that alcohol is the cause of all cirrhosis. It definitely is not. I am sorry you suffer from an unfounded rush to judgment when you tell people your diagnosis. I’ll try to mention the nonsmoking causes of COPD in the future. Dear Dr. Donohue: My sister tells me that a person cannot catch a cold in the winter by going outside and not wearing warm clothes, or not wearing a jacket or hat if it is raining and the temperature is in the 30s. If that is true (and I don’t believe it), how does a person catch a cold? Who is right? Me, or my sister? – R.W. Viruses are the only causes of colds. Rhinoviruses are the major cause of colds, but they aren’t the only viruses. The transmission of cold viruses occurs mainly via the hands. The fingers and hands of a person with a cold invariably have a coating of vi-

rus on them. When an infected person touches the hands of someone who’s uninfected, viral transfer takes place. The uninfected then touches his nose or his eye, and the virus has found a new home. Cold weather doesn’t cause colds, even if a person goes shirtless. Nor does rain. I don’t like to get involved in these family disputes. If your sister is like my sister, she won’t let you ever forget you lost the bet. Dear Dr. Donohue: My mom, 92, has been on antidepressants for many, many years. She takes Risperdal, Cymbalta and Abilify. She’s also on other medicines. Four months ago, she had a scope examination of her stomach and colon. They found two polyps in her stomach and a very irritated stomach lining, which was suspected to be the source of bleeding and her anemia. Now she has lost more weight and is even weaker. We suggested a transfusion, but the doctor says it is not the answer. Any ideas where we should turn next? – J.S. Your mother might feel tired and weak because of the three psychological drugs she takes. Admittedly, she takes a low dose of each, but all three of those medicines can make a person feel less than alert. The combination might be too much for a 92-year-old woman. See if one those medicines can be stopped, or if the doses of all three can be reduced.

In exchange, Kayvan Setareh had his $1 million bail reduced to $100,000 during a hearing Monday. His attorney, Andrew

‘It feels like home’ Renovation to Vet Safety Net facility gives residents a fresh start BY JIMMY TOMLIN ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

H

IGH POINT – You may consider it a renovation, but the overhauled facilities at Caring Services/Vet Safety Net are as much about renewal as renovation. “We’re calling it the Caring Services/ Vet Safety Net Renewal Project,” says Pat Phelps, a volunteer who donated long hours to the building’s renovation. “It’s not just a renewing of the building, but it’s also about the renewal of the men who live there, and even those of us who were involved in the project have kind of had a renewal of spirit doing it.” An open house to show off the new digs will be held Sunday afternoon. Local interior designer Alan Ferguson,

’We don’t have enough to pay for the roof, but we’ve ordered it, knowing the community will step forward.’ Pat Phelps Volunteer founder and owner of Alan Ferguson Interiors, donated his services to oversee the renovation of the six-bedroom facility. Referring to the project as “an obsession,” Ferguson devoted himself wholly to the project. “It started out as just a painting project,” Phelps says. “We had Alan come and give us some ideas – we thought he was just going to give us some paint colors and that kind of thing – but he saw the facility and met some of the guys, and he was just taken. Suddenly, he decided he wanted to devote his time to it.” Many of the veterans living at the facility helped with the renovation, as did a number of volunteers. “People have just come out of the walls to help,” Phelps says. The new decor is bright and colorful: Hardwood floors have replaced the old, worn-out carpet. Ferguson’s paint schemes have replaced dark paneling. Wo-

An open house for the Caring Services/Vet Safety Net Renewal Project will be held Sunday, from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. The facility is located at 102 Chestnut Drive. For more information, call Caring Services at 886-5594. ven shades and draperies have replaced mini-blinds. New furnishings, accent rugs, crown molding and art add to the appeal. “It’s really colorful,” Phelps says. “The whole place is like a piece of art, and it feels like home.” That’s important for the facility to feel like home, Phelps says, because it is a home. Caring Services/Vet Safety Net provides transitional housing for homeless veterans, typically veterans who have struggled with substance abuse. The program provides individual case management, counseling services, support and advocacy for the veterans. A new roof has been ordered for the facility, too.

“We have stepped out on faith on this, because we don’t have all the money to pay for it,” Phelps says. “We don’t have enough to pay for the roof, but we’ve ordered it, knowing the community will step forward. We’re hoping people who come to the open house will be moved to be a part of it.” According to Phelps, the renovation project fits nicely into the facility’s theme of renewal, which includes a relatively new program for putting its residents to work. Caring Services is developing work crews that will work with real-estate companies to make repairs and do other projects at homes that are about to be put on the market. “One of our goals for many years has been to have a way for these veterans, when they come to Caring Services, to have work and begin earning money right away,” she explains. “These work crews can go in and do landscaping, clean the place, brighten it up by doing neutral painting, do electrical work, plumbing. It’s basically a one-stop shop, and it gives these people a chance to work.”

The Avon Foundation Breast Care Fund has awarded Forsyth Medical Center Foundation a one-year, $32,000 grant for Forsyth Medical Center Imaging – The Breast Clinic to expand services and increase awareness of the life-saving benefits of early detection of breast cancer. The Forsyth Medical Center Foundation was one of five first-time grantees across the country to receive funding. The Breast Clinic will hire a parttime bilingual health educator and outreach coordinator to provide culturally appropriate, tailored services at no cost to improve the health and health outcomes of medically underserved women. “Underserved populations such as Hispanic women are less likely to seek breast cancer education and screenings that could save their lives, often due to lack of awareness about the disease and the importance of early detection,” says Kim Cannon, manager at The Breast Clinic. According to Cannon, Hispanic women’s breast cancer rate is lower than that of other ethnic groups, but they are 20 percent more likely than Caucasian women to die of breast cancer because it is often caught at a later stage. Many Hispanic women fail to receive regular breast screenings for a wide range of reasons. These can include lack of health insurance, lack of transportation to facilities that provide screenings, and language or cultural barriers that result in stigma about discussing breast health and performing monthly self-exams.

“I couldn’t find the queen of diamonds,” Cy the Cynic observed sadly after today’s deal. “Just like a man,” growled Wendy, my club’s feminist. “When he says ’I couldn’t find it,’ he means ’It didn’t fall into my outstretched palm, and I am clueless.”’ Wendy and Cy were partners in a Chicago game, and West led a spade against Cy’s 3NT. East correctly played the queen, and Cy won. He next led a diamond to the ace and a diamond to his ten. West produced the queen and guessed to continue spades: down one.

PLATTER “Give me a platter, somebody,” Wendy said to the kibitzers. “I’ll put the queen of diamonds on it, garnish her with salt and parsley, and give her to the opponents.” “I had a guess,” Cy fumed. Cy did indeed have a guess in diamonds, but after he wins the first trick he should cash his club tricks, then combine his chances by taking the K-A of diamonds. If the queen didn’t fall, Cy could finesse in hearts next, hoping for two hearts, a

Taking action and making things happen will ease your stress. ★★★ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Before you share your good ideas, make sure you aren’t giving away too much information. Someone you least expect will try to take credit for something that you say or do. This is not the best time for love or personal gains. ★★★★★ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Change is upon you and can bring about some interesting new contacts and a chance to take part in something that will enhance you mentally, physically or financially. Use your imagination and you will entice others to help you. ★★ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Plan a trip or sign up for a course that will change your outlook, lifestyle or routine.

Love and romance are in the stars. ★★★ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Friends, neighbors or relatives will be difficult to handle. Make sure you have lived up to your promises. Inconsistent behavior will hurt your reputation and give others the chance to take over. Don’t let a personal problem affect your productivity at work. ★★★★ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Take an old idea and turn it into something new and useable. Reaching out to people from your past will help you understand situations that you’ve been questioning for some time. Clear up unfinished business before starting something new. ★★ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You can put your money to better use if you invest in a project or educational pursuit. Get involved in a cause you believe in and you will have the opportunity to form an alliance with someone who will complement what you have to offer. ★★★★★ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Take care of your responsibilities and you will avoid getting into trouble with friends and family. You can improve your environment once you recognize what you need in your life to feel greater satisfaction. ★★★ 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.

Barbour earns first-team honors BY GREER SMITH ENTERPRISE SPORTS WRITER

HIGH POINT – Having a reputation as one of the Big South Conference’s best clutch offensive threats helped High Point University sophomore guard Nick Barbour wind up among those receiving league honors on Monday. Barbour, who led the Panthers with an 18.6 points per game average that was third best in the league and finished the regular season with the best 3-point shooting percentage of .405, was among those named allconference first team in voting by media members and the league’s coaches. “He’s not a secret to people in the league anymore,” High Point coach Scott Cherry said. “He’s extremely gifted offensively and got better and better as the season went along. And he’s had it tough all year because teams have put a lot of focus on him and Eugene Harris because they are our two leading scorers.” Barbour wasn’t the only Panther among the postseason honorees. Junior guard Dave Campbell made the All-Academic team. Massive 6-11, 270-pound senior center Art Parakhouski of Radford, who led the league in scoring (21.6 ppg), rebounding (13.2) and field goal accuracy (58.3 percent), became the fifth man in conference history to be named Player of the Year in consecutive seasons. Parakhouski is second in the nation in rebounding, ranks in the top 10 in field goal percentage and was in double figures in rebounding and scoring

Radford is 31-8 in conference games over two seasons with Parakhouski. Cliff Ellis, who took Coastal Carolina from a 5-

13 record last year to the regular-season championship this time at 15-3, was selected coach of the year. Mantoris Robinson of Winthrop, who ranks fifth in steals and 13th in rebounding, was named defensive player of the year. Charleston Southern guard Jeremy Sexton was selected freshman of the year. He is 15th in the

league in scoring, made the most 3-pointers (66) among freshman and scored in double figures in 14 of 18 conference games. Radford senior forward Phillip Martin, who carries a 3.036 grade-point average, was named the scholar-athlete of the year by the league’s sports information directors. gsmith@hpe.com | 888-3519

BY GREER SMITH ENTERPRISE SPORTS WRITER

ASHEVILLE – Deciding which players to concentrate on defensively will be no easy chore for coach Scott Cherry when his fifth-seeded High Point University Panthers face fourth-seeded UNC Asheville tonight at the Justice Center in the first round of the Big South men’s tournament. John Williams of the host Bulldogs could be a candidate since he landed a spot on the all-conference second team announced Monday. But, the 6-4 forward is just UNCA’s second-best scorer and one of four who averages in double figures. J.P. Primm, a 6-1 guard, leads at 12.1 points per game. Williams is at 11.6, followed by 6-1 guard Matt Dickey at 11.3 and 6-3 guard Chris Stephenson at 10.1. They are backed by two more players averaging more than nine points – 6-6 guard Sean Smith at 9.3 and 6-10 center D.J. Cunningham at 9.1. “They score the ball extremely well,” Cherry said. ”They guard extremely well, so it’s a tough task to go up there and play those guys.” UNCA (14-15, 11-7 Big South) started the season 312 – a rough stretch in which the Bulldogs lost their first four Big South games. One of the losses was to HPU 66-62 in the Millis Center on Jan. 4.

Asheville turned 180 degrees, going on a sevengame winning streak that sparked an 11-3 record over the Bulldogs’ last 14 games. That run included a 83-69 win over the Panthers at the Justice Center. “We’ve been winning by committee,” Biedenbach said. “The thing I have liked lately is that not everyone has to have a good game for us to win. Early in the year, we got our tails beat pretty well. Then we started to play harder and play better together. But we have a tendency at times to go individual on offense and defense.” HPU (15-14, 10-8 Big South) is riding a two-game winning streak. Both of those games were at the Millis Center, where the Panthers were 12-1. They are 3-13 on the road. “We’ve had difficulty on the road this year, that’s no secret,” Cherry said. “Hopefully, being in the tournament with a oneand-done situation will help us stay locked in. We’ve haven’t played terribly. We’ve been in games and had leads in the second half. We’ve just gone for stretches where we weren’t locked in. It’s not like we’ve been blown out. Hopefully, now that it’s the tournament, we can make the plays when we need them.” gsmith@hpe.com | 888-3519

HIT AND RUN

I

admit it – I’m gonna miss the Winter Olympics. The closing ceremonies Sunday night brought an end to the Games. It was quite a ride. From Apolo Anton Ohno’s record-setting U.S. Winter Olympic medal haul (he won three more in these Games to cap his career with eight) to Lindsey Vonn’s up-and-down Vancouver experience (gold in the downhill and silver in the super-G plus three DNFs), we were treated to tons of fun in the snow. Well, there wasn’t always snow in Vancouver. That merely added to the intrigue.

BIG SOUTH MEN’S TOURNAMENT

TOP SCORES

High Point’s Heather Richardson sped to three impressive long-track speedskating finishes and served notice she could be golden in 2014. The Americans left Canada with more medals than we’ve ever won in a Winter Games. That was good. The Canadian women’s hockey team gone wild went from a golden moment to a bad spoof of an “Animal House” sorority party. That was just weird. And that doesn’t even touch on all the drama surrounding figure skating. That offered angry Russian politicians ripping the

judging in the men’s final as well as ice dancers offending an entire race of people. In the most inspirational story of the Games, Canadian figure skater Joannie Rochette touched us all as she dedicated her performance to her mother, who died just prior to the women’s event. Skating with a heavy heart, Rochette performed brilliantly and earned perhaps the most memorable bronze medal in recent Olympic history. Thanks for the memories, Vancouver. I can’t wait for the next Games to begin!

Wake Forest women’s basketball sophomore Secily Ray earned recognition from the Atlantic Coast Conference for standout performances in the 2009-10 season. Ray, a forward out of Thomasville, becomes the first Demon Deacon to earn a spot on the All-ACC team since Cotelia Bond-Young was named to the third team in 2006. Ray, who’s started every conference game for the Deacons this year, earned third-team honors for her teamleading 12.6 points per game and 8.1 rebounds per game mark in ACC play. Ray has logged seven double-doubles in 2009-10 with a recent careerhigh 16 rebounds against N.C. State in the regular season home finale on February 25. Virginia’s Monica Wright made the all-ACC first team for the second straight year. Joining Wright on the all-ACC first team were Boston College’s Carolyn Swords, Duke’s Jasmine Thomas, Florida State’s Jacinta Monroe and Miami’s Shenise Johnson.

GREENSBORO — The all-Atlantic Coast Conference women’s teams, as released Monday and selected by a panel of media members and school representatives: First Team Carolyn Swords, Boston College Jasmine Thomas, Duke Jacinta Monroe, Florida State Shenise Johnson, Miami Monica Wright, Virginia Second Team Lele Hardy, Clemson Courtney Ward, Florida State Brigitte Ardossi, Georgia Tech Riquna Williams, Miami Italee Lucas, North Carolina Third Team Joy Cheek, Duke Alex Montgomery, Georgia Tech Lynetta Kizer, Maryland Cetera DeGraffenreid, North Carolina Secily Ray, Wake Forest Honorable Mention Stefanie Murphy, Boston College; Lori Bjork, Maryland; Bonae Holston, N.C. State; Utahya Drye, Virginia Tech; Brittany Waters, Wake Forest.

Maryland sweeps ACC weekly basketball awards GREENSBORO (AP) — Maryland has swept the Atlantic Coast Conference’s weekly basketball awards. The ACC on Monday named Terrapins senior Greivis Vasquez as its player of the week and teammate Jordan Williams as its rookie of the week. Vasquez won the weekly award for the second straight week after averaging 28 points, 91⁄2 assists and 41⁄2 rebounds in victories against Clemson and Virginia Tech. He had a careerhigh 41 points in the double-overtime victory over the Hokies — the fifth time in league history that a player scored more than 40 in a league game on the road.1 Williams averaged 13 ⁄2 points and 10 rebounds in those games.

ACC names women’s weekly award winners GREENSBORO (AP) — Florida State’s Courtney Ward and Maryland’s Diandra Tchatchouang (CHOTCH’-wahng) are the Atlantic Coast Conference’s women’s basketball players of the week. The ACC on Monday named Ward as its top player for last week and honored Tchatchouang as its top rookie. Ward averaged 20.7 points during a 3-0 week for the Seminoles, who shared the regular-season title with Duke and hold the No. 2 seed in this week’s tournament in Greensboro. Tchatchouang made 53 percent of her shots last week, leads all ACC freshmen in scoring and had 23 points in a loss to the Seminoles.

Moorman headed to East-West Game ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORTS

FOOTBALL BISON GETS EAST-WEST NOD

AP FILE

In this March 27, 2008 photo, North Carolina head coach Roy Williams shares a laugh with Marcus Ginyard at the end of an NCAA Tournament game against Washington State in Charlotte. Ginyard will be honored at Senior Night tonight as the Tar Heels play host to Miami at the Smith Center.

Tar Heels target 2,000th victory BY BRIANA GORMAN ENTERPRISE DURHAM BUREAU

CHAPEL HILL – There is no question that Marcus Ginyard’s final season wearing a North Carolina uniform has not gone exactly the way he wanted it. Nearly a year after the Tar Heels won a national championship, UNC is sitting near the bottom of the ACC standings and is dangerously close to missing out on an NIT berth. The fifth-year senior also missed four games because of injuries and has struggled on the court. Still, Ginyard said he only has to look above his head at the banners when he walks into the Smith Center to remind himself of what he has helped the Tar Heels accomplish over the past five seasons: Three ACC regular-season championships. Two ACC Tournament titles. Two trips to the Final Four. One NCAA championship. “I don’t think that you could rationally sit there and be really disappointed with yourself to see the things that we’ve done over the past five years,” said Ginyard, who redshirted during the 2008-09 season. “I’m just very blessed, very thankful to be a part

of this program and just to know we’ve accomplished some of those things, things that you know you’re never going to forget.” Ginyard said he has not allowed himself to think too much about tonight’s Senior Night when UNC hosts Miami (8 p.m., Raycom), but he admits there might be some tears after his last home game. “There’s no question it will be an emotional day and an emotional evening,” Ginyard said. “I just try not to think about it as much as a I can, and it’ll definitely hit me hard enough (tonight).” Of course, much more is on the line today than just sending the seniors out in high note. UNC (15-14, 4-10 ACC) will be aiming to become just the second program to reach 2,000 wins – Kentucky did it earlier this season – and a victory would guarantee that the Tar Heels finish the season at least .500, which gives them a shot at making the NIT. Thompson and Ginyard are not the only seniors who will be honored tonight. Marc Campbell, who earned a scholarship this season after transferring from UNC Greensboro, as well as walk-ons James Gallagher, Terrence Petree and Thomas Thornton also will be recognized.

GTCC women set for playoff opener SPECIAL TO THE ENTERPRISE

JAMESTOWN – Guilford Technical Community College’s Lady Titans will host South Georgia Technical College in a NCJAA District J playoff game at 1 p.m. Saturday at Rockingham Community College Gymnasium in Wentworth. The winner will advance to the Sweet 16 of the national tournament in Salina, Kan. GTCC, regular season champions in Division I of Region X, is entering the playoff contest after winning its regional tournament in Fort Mill, S.C. The Lady Titans beat Clinton Junior College

75-62 in the championship game late Saturday. GTCC has a 29-2 record and South Georgia has a 26-6 mark. GTCC’s Alison Cousin of Atlanta scored 25 points in the title game and was named the tournament’s most valuable player. Titans joining Cousin on the all-tournament team were Rhonda Young and Amanda Campusano, both of Bronx, NY. The Lady Titans, playing only their second year of basketball, continue to rack up honors: Bobby Allison, who is in his first year as GTCC coach, earlier was named coach of the year for Region X of the National

Junior College Athletic Association. Campusano was named player of the year for the region. She and teammate Young were named to the All-Region X first team. GTCC won the regularseason championship with a 9-0 record. After winning the tournament, Allison has a record of 244-21 as a head coach. He formerly coached at Mohawk Valley Community College in Utica, N.Y. Allison formerly played for GTCC athletic director Phil Gaffney, who recruited him for the coaching job with the Lady Titans.

HIGH POINT – Linebacker Jimmy Moorman received an invitation Monday to take part in the 62nd annual East-West Football All-Star Game, set for Wednesday, July 21, at Greensboro Grimsley’s Jamison Stadium. Moorman earned defensive player of the year honors as a junior in the Metro 4A and a senior in the Piedmont Triad 4A conferences as a physical but undersized linebacker. He currently plans to play for Louisburg College this fall, but other offers may come in after college coaches see him in action during EastWest week. “His face lit up today when I told him he was getting an opportunity to play in the game,” High Point Central coach Wayne Jones said. “It’s something he deserves and speaks volumes of all the work he’s put in.” Moorman will be the first Bison selected for the game since Tim Applegate, who wrapped up his Elon football career two seasons ago. East-West nominations are sent in by high school coaches. Members of the East-West coaching staffs then sift through game film to find the players they want the head coach to invite. East-West week begins Monday, July 19, with the annual basketball games.

McMurray, Montoya at odds after Las Vegas wreck LAS VEGAS (AP) – The honeymoon is apparently over for Jamie McMurray, who celebrated his reunion with team owner Chip Ganassi with a careerchanging Daytona 500 victory. A mere three weeks later, he’s at the center of a team controversy following a wreck with Juan Pablo Montoya at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The two were running ninth and 10th midway through Sunday’s race when McMurray lost control of his car and ran into his teammate. Montoya minced no words in expressing his displeasure, erupting on his team radio in words not fit for print. The emotional Colombian had calmed very little by the time he limped his car to the garage and met with media. “I’m sure on the radio it was ’Ah, I didn’t mean that,”’ Montoya mocked in a high-pitched tone. “He is just trying to prove to people he can drive a race car

and I guess he isn’t doing too many favors on this team.” Ouch. The criticism continued hours after Montoya’s 37th-place finish when his wife, Connie, went to Twitter and weighed in with a Spanish post that, roughly translated, said the McDonald’s clown must have been driving McMurray’s car on Sunday. The dig was a reference to the McDonald’s sponsorship McMurray debuted at Las Vegas because the deal closed after his Daytona 500 victory. These are the type of feuds that can tear a race team apart. Although teammates have hated each other in the past and still found a way to be successful, it’s difficult in today’s NASCAR and even harder for a smaller team such as Earnhardt Ganassi Racing. But as angry as Montoya may be with McMurray, this will likely blow over fairly quickly.

Why? Because the drivers don’t have to be best friends, or even like each other, for EGR to succeed. The only thing that’s important is that they focus on the organization, which everyone seems determined to do going forward. EGR made monstrous strides last season when crew chief Brian Pattie guided Montoya to the team’s first berth in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship, overcoming early organizational issues to claim one of the coveted 12 spots. A merger between Ganassi and Dale Earnhardt Inc. had the two teams essentially operating individually for several months last season, but Montoya was able to succeed despite the handicap. Those roadblocks were eventually overcome, and EGR had a true two-car team by the time last season ended. The unity has been evident with strong cars in all three races this year, plus McMurray’s season-opening win.

The trick for Ganassi now, though, is to soothe egos and hurt feelings before Sunday’s incident takes the team back two steps. The team owner didn’t seem concerned Monday. “Obviously two teammates would not try to or want to tack each other out,” said Ganassi, adding he thought Montoya “will be calmer today.” McMurray, who accepted blame and apologized publicly after the race, also downplayed any friction on Monday and said too much was being made of the situation. “I spoke with him last night, and everything is fine,” he said. Still, “fine” is a relative term, and, until coming to NASCAR, Montoya has never really been “fine” with his teammates. That’s not really how it works in Formula One, where the team dynamics are so cutthroat that teammates are often the most bitter of rivals.

States may ban credit checks on job seekers ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) – It’s hard enough to find a job in this economy, and now some people are facing another hurdle: Potential employers are holding their credit histories against them. Sixty percent of employers recently surveyed by the Society for Human Resources Management said they run credit checks on at least some job applicants, compared with 42 percent in a somewhat similar survey in 2006. Employers say such checks give them valuable information about an applicant’s honesty and sense of responsibility. But lawmakers in at least 16 states from South Carolina to Oregon have proposed

outlawing most checks, saying the practice traps people in debt because their past financial problems prevent them from finding work. Wisconsin state Rep. Kim Hixson drafted a bill in his state shortly after hearing from Terry Becker, an auto mechanic who struggled to find work. Becker said it all started with medical bills that piled up when his now 10year-old son began having seizures as a toddler. In the first year alone, Becker ran up $25,000 in medical debt. Over 4½ months, he was turned down for at least eight positions for which he had authorized the employer to conduct a credit

check, Becker said. He said one potential employer told him, “If your credit is bad, then you’ll steal from me.” “I was in a deep depression. I had lost a business, I was behind on my bills and I was unable to get a job,” he said. Hixson calls what happened to Becker discrimination based on credit history and said his bill would ban it. “If somebody is trying to get a job as a truck driver or a trainer in a gym, what does your credit history have to do with your ability to do that job?” Hixson said. He said he knows of no research that shows a person with a bad credit

LOCAL FUNDS

history is going to perform poorly. Under federal law, prospective employers must get written permission from applicants to run a credit check on them. But consumer advocates say most job applicants do not feel they are in a position to say no. Most of the bills being proposed this year resemble laws in Hawaii and Washington that prevent employers from using credit reports when hiring for most positions. The laws contain exceptions in cases where such information could be relevant to the job – for example, if the person is applying to work in a bank or an accountspayable office.

EU, Greece discuss more budget cuts ATHENS, Greece – The EU pressed Greece hard to make more painful budget cuts amid reports that fellow European nations such as France and Germany are preparing a financial rescue to get the country out of its debt crisis. Europe’s financial affairs chief Olli Rehn insisted Monday that additional measures were necessary, a view he said was shared by the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund. Finance Minister GeorgPapaconstantinou said the center-left government will do “whatever is necessary – and that includes new measures” to the budget deficit by four percentage points this year.

UK’s Prudential buys AIG Asian unit LONDON – British insurer Prudential PLC said Monday it will buy the Asian unit of bailed out American International Group Inc. in a deal worth $35.5 billion that will allow AIG to pay back some of the money it owes U.S. taxpayers. AIG, which was kept alive by a $182.5 billion rescue by the U.S. government in September 2008, will get $25 billion in cash – $20 billion of that from a Prudential rights issue – and $10.5 billion in new shares and securities for the sale of AIA Group Ltd.

Oil around $80 as dollar strengthens NEW YORK – Oil prices stayed around $80 a barrel Monday, as the effects of a rising dollar offset the strength in other commodities markets and increases in equities.

In this March 2008 photo, workers load a truck with rolls of paper at The Weyerhaeuser Co. in Oxnard, Calif. The manufacturing sector expanded in February for the seventh straight month

Recovery modest, but steady NEW YORK (AP) – Mixed reports Monday on manufacturing, construction and personal income and spending made clear that the economy is enjoying modest growth even though the recovery remains fragile. Manufacturing output expanded in February for a seventh straight month. Factory output has provided one of the few areas of strength for the economy. Still, the growth in manufacturing activity slowed compared with January and fell short of economists’ expectations.

In addition, construction spending fell for a third straight month in January. And though personal spending rose slightly more than expected, Americans’ incomes scarcely budged. In part, that was because Social Security recipients didn’t get their usual cost-of-living boost. The weak income growth could depress spending in the months ahead and drag on the economy’s rebound. The Institute for Supply Management, a trade group of purchasing ex-

ecutives, said its manufacturing index read 56.5 last month. That was slower than the 58.4 reading in January. A reading above 50 indicates expansion. The ISM said its employment measure grew for the fourth time in five months, accelerating to 56.1 in February from 53.3 in January. February’s number is the highest since January 2005. Gauges of production and new orders fell, indicating slower growth ahead.

Kohn to leave Fed in June WASHINGTON (AP) – Donald Kohn, the secondhighest ranking official at the Federal Reserve, announced Monday that he will leave at the end of June, giving President Barack Obama a chance to put a bigger imprint on the central bank. Kohn, vice chairman, has played a major role in shaping the Fed’s strategy

DILBERT

in fighting the worst financial and economic crises to hit the country since the Great Depression. His departure will open up a third seat on the sevenmember Federal Reserve board in Washington. Board members are picked by the president and must be confirmed by the Senate. The president will have

a delicate task before him. He will need to pick candidates who appeal to Democrats and aren’t objectionable to Republicans. All this in an election year, where many Americans are upset with Obama about Wall Street bailouts, high unemployment and rising home foreclosures.
