Davidson officials debate fate of Wil-Cox Bridge BY DARRICK IGNASIAK ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

LEXINGTON – Davidson County commissioners want several questions answered by the N.C. De-

If commissioners elect to not take ownership of the bridge, the structure could be demolished. partment of Transportation before making a decision Tuesday night on whether they will take ownership of the historic Wil-Cox Bridge. During the Davidson County Board of Commissioners informational meeting Thursday morning, commissioners heard a presentation from David Fischetti, president of DCF Engineering. Com-

missioners hired Fischetti last month to examine the structure of the WilCox Bridge, which was built in 1922 and is eligible to be placed on the National Register of Historic Places. If commissioners elect to not take ownership of the bridge, the structure, which is adjacent to the Interstate 85 bridge over the Yadkin River and serves as a thoroughfare to the town of Spencer, could be demolished as part of the project to replace the Interstate 85 bridge over the Yadkin River – a project that received the green light last month when DOT officials learned the state would receive stimulus funding. Using photos to show the Wil-Cox Bridge’s deterioration and other damage, Fischetti said some of the damage and deterioration could be attributed to the use of road salt and high water that periodi-


HIGH POINT – If you’re wondering where the 11-square-mile Uptowne High Point area – on which The City Project has focused its revitalization efforts – is located, you won’t have to wonder much longer. The City Project hung its first Uptowne High Point banner on Tuesday morning at the intersection of N. Main Street and State Avenue, in front of the High Point Chamber of Commerce. The banner’s location marks the northern boundary of the Uptowne area, and another 27 banners will span to its southern boundary at the N. Main Street and Ray Avenue intersection. City workers were joined by Jay Wagner, vice chairman of the nonprofit organization, who wore a harness and a hard hat as he helped workers hang the banner on a utility pole at the intersection. Aaron Clinard, chairman of the organization, said the banners were needed to visually designate the Uptowne area. “It’s something visible, and that’s what we’ve been waiting for,” Clinard said. “We think it will bring some excitement to our merchants and excitement to some potential merchants.” The banners were designed by Guilford Technical Community College student Thomas McGuire. McGuire is enrolled in the school’s graphic design program, and he created the banner to depict a city streetscape. “The idea to create the logo was brought to my class a few years ago,” he said. “I made the logo, and last semester someone came back to me and said that The City Project liked it and wanted to take it further.” McGuire said the banner reflects the types of buildings found along

HIGH POINT – The U.S. Postal Service’s announcement this week to possibly cut Saturday delivery didn’t bother customers at the main High Point post office on Thursday – especially if the cut would keep other charges down. “If it (cutting Saturday delivery) is needed to keep postal charges from going up further, then sure,” said Jeanne Glenn, who operates Showroom Sources, at the post office on E.

very well over the years that doesn’t work as well anymore,” said Walton from his Greensboro office. “With technological advances and issues in the economy, there is a tremendous decline in mail volume.” Rate hikes usually are limited to inflation, but increases may be allowed beyond inflation rates during extreme economic situations. Glenn said previous rate increases had hurt small business owners across the nation who already were struggling in a down economy. Canceling delivery on Saturday won’t matter to Cindy Walker, also a customer at the post office, if she continues to get her bills on time. “I don’t depend on Saturday delivery, but I might


miss it because of bills and magazines and things being delivered on that day,” she said. “I do understand why they are doing it if they need to cut costs.” Murdoch McMillan, retail supervisor at the High Point post office, said the cancellation of Saturday delivery would not impact the post office’s hours on Saturday, which are 9 a.m. to noon. “We’ll still be processing mail on Saturday, we’ll just be canceling personal delivery,” he said. “Monday mail would be ready on time.” McMillan said cutting Saturday delivery also would not affect full-time employees, but the post office may lose eight to 10 part-time employees. | 888-3617

Complaint against NC Realtors over dues dismissed RALEIGH (AP) – The State Board of Elections dismissed Thursday a complaint against one of the most powerful interest groups in North Carolina politics over requiring its members to give extra dues while they fought local votes over raising the land sales tax. Following more than two hours of arguments and testimony, board members determined the 38,000-member North Carolina Association of Realtors

didn’t break the law when it required up to $75 extra from each member in 2008. The proceeds went to an “Issues Mobilization Fund” to extend the association’s efforts to oppose county referenda to raise the land transfer tax. All of the more than 20 county ballot measures have failed. Becky Harper, a Wake County real estate agent who filed the complaint, argued it was unlawful for the association to demand extra dues from her and

other Realtors to oppose the land transaction tax. Her lawyer cited a law preventing referendum committees from seeking money by threat of “job discrimination or financial reprisals.” The board determined the law didn’t apply to the association in part because defeating the referenda isn’t the association’s main purpose. But board Chairman Larry Leake criticized the association for denying people

Obama nominates area policeman for US marshal post ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

TRIAD – A veteran law enforcement officer and investigator with the Greensboro Police Department was nominated this week by President Barack Obama as the next U.S. marshal for the federal Middle

District of North Carolina. Willie R. Stafford currently serves as a background investigator for the Greensboro police. He’s also an independent consultant providing pre-employment screening and promotional testing services for law

enforcement agencies. From 1975-2004, Stafford served with the Greensboro police in a variety of roles. He retired as the assistant chief of police for the Western Operations Bureau. Stafford was one of three nominees suggest-

ed to the White House last year by Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan of Greensboro. “Bill’s long history with the Greensboro Police Department has given him the unique experience to serve North Carolina in this important federal law enforcement position,” Hagan said.

cally comes in contact with the bridge. The bridge’s condition has been characterized as “poor,” with “advanced deterioration” and requires significant repairs, according to Fischetti’s report. Although Fischetti said the bridge’s condition is poor and repairs need to be made, he reported to commissioners the bridge’s structure is “monumental” and “very difficult to duplicate today.” He also said the bridge could serve as a pedestrian bridge for many years – the reason Davidson County officials decided to pursue ownership of it. Fischetti cautioned Davidson County officials to not take ownership of the bridge until it’s closed to vehicular traffic – that way the county does not have to pay for expensive repairs, a possible cost that commissioners strongly oppose. While the DOT has offered Davidson County $2.5 million – the amount the DOT says it will pay to demolish the bridge – for preservation

It’s a serious thing when you are dealing with taxpayers’ money. You just can’t do things like this without getting solid answers from the DOT.” Based on Fischetti’s report and a proposed contract with the DOT, commissioners also are unclear when they would get ownership of the bridge and if they would be able to obtain land on both sides of the bridge.

Davis expected to make decision on run for House BY DAVID NIVENS ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – County Commissioner Bruce Davis is expected to end speculation today during a press conference about whether he will enter the crowded race

for the District 28 House seat. The High Point Democrat ran against Sen. Katie Dorsett in the Democratic primary two years ago. Davis earlier said he thought it was unfair for Dorsett to pull out of the race this year at

the last minute. He then said he was considering other options. Davis, who is unopposed for re-election to his District 1 Board of Commissioners seat, said Thursday in Greensboro that he has researched petition and

ROBERT HEALY: Academy Awards hypocrisy makes me turn the channel. TOMORROW

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


Tea Party is neither Republican nor Democrat Letter writer James Brigham (Feb. 28, “Protesters should drink that tea responsibly”) seems somewhat disturbed by the actions of the Tea Party activists and the Republican Party. Perhaps he should take a deep breath and understand the Tea Party is composed of people who are not satisfied with the Democratic current administration/ Congress, nor the Republicans in Congress. They have made this very clear in numerous venues, interviews and statements over several months. The Tea Party is independent. It has no loyalty to the Republicans or the Democrats. These activists want our government to respond to the country’s needs, including national defense, the economy, fiscal responsibility, jobs and more jobs. They are firmly opposed to Obamacare and the Democrats’ humongous health care plans. The Tea Party wants the country to return to its basic rights and responsibilities in line with the Constitution. Not someone’s idea of the Constitution, but the Constitution under which we have worked and prospered since the founding of this great nation. I would advise Brigham to relax. This marvelous country made up of caring, decent, giving and honest people will survive these times and grow again into the country we know and love. The Tea Party is part of the solution.

End Hege era by voting all supporters out of office I have observed the Gerald Hege saga from beginning to end, from the removal of TVs in the jail to his conviction and sentencing. For nearly 10 years, I listened to his lies, distortions of the truth, power-grabbing tactics, total disregard for other law enforcement agencies, self-promotion schemes and his handling of crime statistics. It would be an understatement to say I was disappointed with the disposition of his case, firmly believing a much harsher sentence would be more appropriate. But the Hege era was at an end, and, in my opinion, one of Davidson County’s most shameful enterprises had collapsed. Truth being stranger than fiction, Hege has now filed as a



Politicians play health care game, aren’t lowering costs

Slow down on health care, Mr. President M


ell, at least House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer sounds a bit reasonable about an impending health care reform vote – much more so than President Obama. On Wednesday, Obama challenged the Congress controlled by Democrats to pass health care reform legislation during the next two or three weeks. Hoyer said that might be doable, that March 29 might be more doable and that “the world doesn’t fall apart” if neither of those artificial deadlines is met. Even after some supposed revisions and concessions to Republicans in the health care bill backed by the Democrats, President Obama continues to push, push, push for quick consideration and approval of the legislation. It’s currently unavailable for congressional and public scrutiny. “I believe the United States Congress owes the American people a final vote,” the president said, and there’s nothing wrong with that position. However, Obama shouldn’t be in such a hurry for an “up or down vote” on the legislation without time for it to be examined by Congress and the public. After all, the bill’s provisions won’t take effect for another four years or so. It’s not like people are going to drop dead in the streets unless the bill is rushed to passage tomorrow. It’s not unreasonable to ask that the public and Congress be given ample time to review the revised bill. It’s supposed to contain revisions that more or less are Obama concessions to Republicans and also to members of his own party who have objections. But who knows what it might contain if it’s not reviewed before a vote? We want Rep. Howard Coble, Rep. Mel Watt, Sen. Richard Burr and Sen. Kay Hagan and all the other members of Congress to know what the bill contains before voting. We do agree with the president when he says, “I don’t see how another year of negotiations would help.” That much time isn’t necessary, only enough for the bill to be read and digested by Congress and the public before that up or down vote.

ost discussions of health care are like something out of Alice in Wonderland. What is the biggest complaint about the current medical care situation? “It costs too much.” Yet one looks in vain for anything in the pending legislation that will lower those costs. One of the biggest reasons for higher medical costs is that somebody else is paying those costs, whether an insurance company or the government. What is the politicians’ answer? To have more costs paid by insurance companies and the government. Back when the “single payer” was the patient, people were more selective in what they spent their own money on. You went to a doctor when you had a broken leg but not necessarily every time you had the sniffles or a skin rash. But, when someone else is paying, that is when medical care gets overused – and bureaucratic rationing is then imposed, to replace self-rationing. Money is just one of the costs of people seeking more medical care than they would if they were paying for it with their own money. Both waiting lines and waiting lists grow longer when people with sniffles and minor skin rashes take up the time of doctors, while people with cancer are waiting. In country after country, the original estimates of government medical care costs almost always turn out to be gross underestimates of what it ultimately turns out to cost. Even when the estimates are done honestly, they are based on how much medical care people use when they are paying for it themselves. But having someone else pay for medical care virtually guarantees that a lot more of it will be used. Nothing would lower costs more than having each patient pay those costs. And nothing is less likely to happen. One of the big costs that have actually forced some hospitals to close is the federal mandate that hospitals treat everyone who comes to an emergency room, whether they pay or not. But those who talk about “bringing down the cost of medical care” are not about to repeal that mandate. Often they want to add more mandates. The most fundamental issue is not whether treating everyone who comes to an emergency room is a good policy or a bad policy in itself. If it is a good policy, then the federal government should pay for what it wants done, not force other institutions to pay for it. Then let the voters decide at

the next election whether that is what they want their tax money spent for. Confusion between costs and prices add to the Alice in Wonderland sense of unreality. What is called lowering the OPINION costs is simply refusing to pay all the costs, by having the Thomas government set lower prices, Sowell whether for doctors’ fees, ■■■ hospital reimbursements or other charges. Surely no one believes that there will be no repercussions from refusing to pay for what we want. Some doctors are already refusing to accept Medicare or Medicaid patients because the government’s reimbursement levels are so low. Similarly, if it costs a billion dollars to create one new pharmaceutical drug, then either we are going to pay the billion dollars or we are not going to keep on getting new pharmaceutical drugs produced. There is no free lunch. Virtually everything that is proposed by those who are talking about bringing down the costs of medical care will in fact raise those costs. Mandates on insurance companies? Why are insurance companies not already doing those things that new mandates would require? Because those things raise costs by an amount that people are unwilling to pay to get those benefits. If not, it would be a slam dunk for the insurance companies to add those benefits to the policies and raise the premiums to cover them. What politicians want to do is look good by imposing mandates, and then let the insurance companies look bad by raising the premiums to cover the additional costs. It is a great political game, but it does nothing to lower medical costs. Politicians who want a government monopoly on health insurance can easily get it, just by making it impossible for private insurance companies to charge enough to cover the costs mandated by politicians. The “public option” will then be the only option – which is to say, we will no longer have any real option.

Deadly blasts disrupt Iraq vote



Man arrested in Pakistan in boy’s kidnapping LONDON – A man was arrested in Pakistan on Thursday in connection with the kidnapping of a 5-year-old British boy there, Britain’s Foreign Office said. Police in Pakistan made the arrest and were detaining the man for questioning, a Foreign Office spokeswoman said. British consular staff were in close contact with the investigating Pakistani officer, she said, without providing other details.

Clinton: US to restore aid to Honduras SAN JOSE, Costa Rica – U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says the Obama administration will restore aid to Honduras that was suspended after a coup last year. Clinton is urging Latin America to recognize the new Honduran government. Speaking Thursday in Costa Rica, Clinton said the post-coup government, which took office in January, was democratically elected.

Brazil quarantines cruise ship over food poisoning SAO PAULO – Hundreds of passengers aboard an international cruise ship were stricken with vomiting and diarrhea, prompting a temporary quarantine of the vessel in southeastern Brazil, health authorities said Thursday. At least 310 people suffered “some kind of food poisoning aboard” the Vision of the Seas, operated by Royal Caribbean International, a spokeswoman for the National Agency for Sanitary Vigilance said. She spoke on condition of anonymity, in line with department policy.

4 ferries stuck in ice off Swedish coast STOCKHOLM – Sweden’s sea rescue service says four passenger ferries with more than 1,000 people on board are trapped in ice in the Baltic Sea. The Swedish Maritime Administration says that there are 1,133 passengers and crew on the four ships, which have been stuck for hours just off the Swedish coast. Rescue spokesman Peter Lindquist says no one is hurt and there are currently no plans to evacuate.


An unidentified woman reacts after a stampede at a temple in Kunda, India, Thursday.

63 die in Indian temple stampede KUNDA, India (AP) – A stampede among thousands of poor villagers scrambling for free food and clothes at a commemorative event killed 63 people Thursday at a Hindu temple in northern India and injured dozens of others. Nearly all the victims were women and children. The stam-

pede was so intense it knocked down a gate at the compound surrounding the temple in the small town of Kunda, on the northern plains of Uttar Pradesh state. “How could this happen in such a holy place?” cried Phool Chand Saroj, a 48-year-old farmer whose wife, daughter and grandmother

were killed in the stampede. “If they had been more careful about letting in the crowds this would not have happened.” While most men in the farming region worked in their fields, women from surrounding villages gathered with their children Thursday in Kunda for a midday handout of donations.

BAGHDAD (AP) – A string of deadly blasts shattered an early round of voting in Iraq Thursday, killing 17 people and highlighting the fragile nature of the country’s security gains ahead of crucial parliamentary elections this Sunday. Iraq security forces were out in full force, trying to protect early voters in an election that will determine who will lead the country through the crucial period of the U.S. troop drawdown and help decide whether the country can overcome its deep sectarian divisions. But three explosions – a rocket attack and two suicide bombings – showed the ability of insurgents to carry out bloody attacks.

China backs diplomacy plan on Iran UNITED NATIONS (AP) – Western powers pressed for new sanctions against Iran on Thursday but China and Russia called for diplomatic negotiations as the best way to achieve a peaceful settlement of the dispute over Tehran’s nuclear program.

China and Russia also urged Iran to resolve a standoff with the U.N. nuclear watchdog agency and key powers on how to supply nuclear fuel for Tehran’s research reactor, saying this is key to easing current tensions. Neither China’s deputy

UN envoy: It’s ‘time to talk’ to the Taliban KABUL (AP) – The head of the U.N. mission in Afghanistan said Thursday that it’s “high time” a political solution is found with the Taliban to resolve the more than 8-year-old conflict. “It’s time to talk,” Kai Eide said. In his last news conference as the U.N. representative, Eide said he hoped a spring peace jirga – or conference – that Afghan President

Hamid Karzai is organizing would result in a national consensus for peace that the entire nation could rally around. In a wide-ranging news conference at the heavily secured U.N. compound, Eide said he has always been behind a policy of engagement, but has no allusions about the complexities of negotiating peace with Taliban leaders.

Haitian family survives 2 big quakes in 2 months SAN BERNARDO, Chile (AP) – The Desarmes family left their native Haiti two weeks after the devastating Jan. 12 earthquake, joining the eldest son in Chile for what seemed a refuge from the fear and chaos of Portau-Prince. Their sense of security lasted barely a month. It

was shattered at 3:43 a.m. Saturday when one of the most powerful quakes on record shook a swath of Chile. All the Desarmes’ immediate family survived both quakes. But twice cursed, the family now sleeps in the garden of a home that the eldest son, Pierre Desarmes, found for them.

Chelsea King suspect investigated for other crimes SAN DIEGO (AP) – A convicted sex offender charged with murdering Chelsea King in Southern California is under investigation in last year’s disappearance of a 14-year-old girl and the attempted kidnapping of another teenager, authorities said. John Albert Gardner III remained jailed Thursday in San Diego County, a day after he pleaded not guilty to murdering the 17-year-old King. The sheriff believes a body found Tuesday in a shallow grave on the shore of Lake Hodges is that of King, but the medical examiner’s office had not yet confirmed the identity. Gardner, once described by a psychiatrist as a threat to underage girls, was under scrutiny in two other cases.

A 16-yearold girl reported that she ran away after a man asked her for directions then tried Gardner to force her into a car at gunpoint on Oct. 28 in Lake Elsinore, about 75 miles from the site where King disappeared, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department said. The suspect was described as a man 30 to 35 years old with a squarish jaw, brown eyes and a blond crew cut. A sketch appears similar to Gardner, who is 30 and has a closely shaven scalp. “There are similarities,” Capt. Joseph Cleary told the Riverside PressEnterprise. “If there is a connection, we will track it down.”

federal highway programs through the end of the year. Some Democrats feel the approximately $35 billion jobs bill is too puny, while others say the tax cut for new hires won’t generate many new jobs. The House had passed a much larger measure in December that contained

almost $50 billion in infrastructure funding, $50 billion in help for cashstarved state governments, and a six-month extension of jobless aid. That bill conspicuously left out the proposals to award tax credits for hiring new workers. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was among those skeptical of that idea.

Camp kicks off drive ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

RANDLEMAN – Victory Junction kicked off its “Keeping the Dream Alive” campaign this week by announcing that NASCAR racer Dale Earnhardt Jr. will join the elite list of Victory Junction Founders. Earnhardt committed to donate $1 million to build and maintain The Dale Jr. Corral and Amphitheatre at the Randleman-based camp, which caters to children with serious illnesses. Victory Junction was a dream of racer Adam Petty. His passion for helping children drove him to think of ways to directly change the lives of children with chronic medical conditions or serious illnesses. During a Nationwide Series practice session in 2000, Adam tragically lost his life. But his dream was realized by his father, Kyle Patty, and Kyle’s wife, Pattie. The camp impacts the lives of more than 13,000 children and families that have suffered from more than two dozen diseases such as cancer, hemophilia, spina bifida, physical disabilities and sickle cell. On March 27, during The Dale Jr. Foundation Physical Disabilities Weekend at Victory Junction, Earnhardt will join the Victory Junction family as a founder and will break ground on a one-of-akind project, The Dale Jr. Corral and Amphitheatre. Eighty-eight members of The JR Nation Crew, The Official Fan Club of Dale Jr., will be randomly selected to be special guests for the private groundbreaking ceremony. To become a part of the FREE JR Nation Crew fan club and be eligible to attend, go to www. “There are many reasons why we wanted to get involved with Victory Junction and build this amphitheatre, and it starts with the tremendous impact the camp has on these kids. It’s incredible how one week changes lives,” Earnhardt said. “Just as important to me is my friendship with Kyle and Pattie Petty, and the memory of my buddy, Adam Petty. “Adam and I met each other at an early age, and from that point on our lives and careers were virtually parallel. He was as genuine as they get and a great friend. If I can play a small part in helping Kyle and Pattie keep his dream alive, it doesn’t require a second thought.” The interactive outdoor amphitheatre will provide campers the opportunity to sing a song, act in a play, tell a joke, play an instrument, watch a movie or even get their face pictured on an old, Western “Wanted” poster along with the infamous outlaw, “Junior.”

THOMASVILLE – The Thomasville City Council will consider an economic incentives package for a company Monday that could have a “good future” in the Chair City, Councilman Raleigh York Jr. said this week. If the City Council approves the incentives package for the company, which is being code-named Project 3C, it would join the Davidson County Board of Commissioners in trying to entice the company to the county.

Last month, commissioners agreed to give the company $5,400 annually for five years if it accepts the package with Davidson County. Council members will consider an economic development incentive grant for Project 3C at .0028 times the total investment of approximately $2 million in the plant, machinery and equipment. The company, which would create and maintain 20 jobs and provide wages equal to or above the county average, would receive the grant annually for five years. York said the council has received the name of the

company, but very little information about the project. City and county officials have yet to release the name of the company. “It’s projected to create 20 jobs in the short term, and an investment to increase our tax base, with the potential of other jobs,” York said. “I see the company that the (Davidson County Economic Development Commission) is dealing with as one that possibly has a good future in Thomasville.” Steve Googe, executive director of the Davidson County Economic Development Commission,

said last month he was contacted by the company about a year ago before it returned several months ago. He wouldn’t provide any other details on the company until it decides to make an official announcement. “We haven’t been given a whole lot of details about it,” Councilman Scott Styers said of the project. “Hopefully, it’s going to be something that will be a responsible employer that we can seriously consider because obviously, we, like most small towns, need jobs and tax base.”

Forum features area House, county commission candidates BY PAUL B. JOHNSON ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – Voters will have the opportunity to see and hear from candidates in three key High Point area races during a forum Monday night at High Point City Hall. The High Point Republican Party will sponsor a candidates forum for four Republicans seeking the 61st State House District and two Republicans squaring off for the District 2 seat on the Guilford County Board of Commissioners. The event also will feature the four Republican candidates for the 28th State Senate District, a seat being vacated this year by retiring Sen. Katie Dorsett, D-Guilford. The forum is at 7 p.m. Monday in the City Council chambers downtown. No Democrats are running in the Nov. 2 general election in 61st State House District or Guilford commissioners district, meaning that the Republican winners in the May 4 primary are all but assured of taking the seats. And both seats will be open, since state



The High Point Republican Party will host a candidates forum at 7 p.m. Monday at the High Point City Council chambers downtown. The forum is for Republican candidates in the 61st State House District, Guilford County Board of Commissioners District 2 and 28th State Senate District. For more information, call the local Republican Party at 259-8085. Rep. Laura Wiley, R-Guilford, and Republican commissioner Steve Arnold, both of High Point, aren’t seeking re-election. The 61st State House District candidates are High Point City Councilman John Faircloth, High Point real estate businessman Gerald Grubb, High Point businessman and Phoenix Academy charter school co-founder Paul Norcross and Jamestown Town Councilwoman and attorney Georgia Nixon-Roney. The district covers parts of High Point, Jamestown and southwestern Guilford


County. The District 2 candidates are High Point City Councilman Bill Bencini and High Point Republican Women activist Myrene Stanley of High Point, making her first bid for public office. District 2 covers western and northern High Point and western Guilford County along the Forsyth County line past Interstate 40. The 28th State Senate District Republican candidates are Greensboro City Councilwoman Trudy Wade, John Welch of Greensboro and a pair of Jamestown residents – Robert Brafford Jr. and Jeffrey Brommer. The Republican nominee will take on the Democratic nominee, either Gladys Robinson or Evelyn Miller, both of Greensboro. The Senate district covers parts of High Point, Greensboro and southern Guilford County. Though sponsored by the local Republican Party, the forum is open to the general public, said High Point GOP Chairman Don Webb. | 888-3528

GREENSBORO – For opening her door to help a brother in need, authorities believe Mary Ferrell Jones ended up giving her life. Before a packed courtroom Wednesday afternoon, her brother – 43-year-old Connell Ferrell – pleaded guilty to first-degree murder. He admitted to brutally beating and stabbing her on Oct. 11 inside the apartment they shared at 317-A E. Florida St. “Whatever happened, I am sorry,” Ferrell told family members at Guilford County Superior Court. “Whatever happened that day was way out of my control.” Ferrell agreed to plead guilty to first-degree murder in exchange for avoiding the death penalty. Judge Ed Wilson Jr. sentenced Ferrell to life in prison. Howard Neumann, chief assistant district attorney, said Ferrell beat and stabbed Jones to death after an argument over money that Ferrell had used to buy crack cocaine. Neumann said Jones, 55, had allowed her younger brother to live with her last summer. He had just been released from prison in Virginia after serving six years on convictions of forgery and breaking and entering. Of seven siblings, Jones was the only one willing to take in Ferrell. All was well until Oct. 10, when Jones left to go to work at a local restaurant, Neumann said. Jones had left her brother $150 to pay bills.

Man’s inner beauty masked by scary mole


ear Abby: I have been dating a guy who is wonderful, caring – everything a woman would want. There’s just one problem. When he takes off his shirt, he has an extremely ugly mole. It looks suspicious and is irregularly shaped. I can’t stand looking at it, but my eyes are drawn to it like to a car wreck. To top it off, it has hair growing out of it. I know he probably pays no attention to it because it’s on his back. But I see it staring back at me. How do you tell a loving and caring man that you’re turned off by his scary mole? – Grossed Out in Oklahoma City Dear Grossed Out: Because man was not born equipped with a rearview mirror, it takes a caring friend to tell him – or her – what’s going on behind his/her back. It’s not necessary to say that you are “grossed out” at the sight of the mole. All you need to say is: “Honey, you have a large, irregularly shaped mole on your back that looks suspicious. It doesn’t look right, and you need to have it checked out by a dermatologist as soon as possible because I’m worried about you.” Dear Abby: It’s tax season, and once again, my husband and I are

faced with our annual “conflict.” We buy a tax program for our computer ADVICE and do our own Dear taxes. EvAbby ery year, ■■■ one of our daughters has my husband do her taxes. After he completes them, he returns the forms so she and her husband can sign them. The problem is, they never pay the taxes they owe. My daughter and sonin-law owe thousands of dollars, and I know they risk being audited by the IRS. If that happens, I am sure the kids will say that my husband actually did the taxes, which could draw us into their problem. It might even target us to be audited. I don’t want to be dragged into this potential problem. My husband thinks I’m being silly and borrowing trouble unnecessarily. What do you think? – Honest Taxpayer in Wisconsin Dear Honest Taxpayer: Because your husband is preparing the tax return as a favor and not being paid, I doubt he will get into trouble. But there’s a good chance your daughter and her husband will. What she needs to do is contact the

IRS and work out some kind of workable payment plan. And as loving parents, you and your husband should encourage them to act like responsible adults and do that. Dear Abby: I am a 48-year-old divorced man who has been dating a divorcee for five years. Last night I asked her to marry me, only to be told she was not ready and afraid of being hurt again. Should I stay in this relationship, or stop seeing her and try to start another relationship? I’m afraid that staying in this one much longer will prevent me from finding someone else who would marry me. – Rejected And Dejected in Ohio Dear Dejected: After five years of dating, the lady should have some idea of how trustworthy you are. Because she’s gun-shy, offer to go with her to some counseling sessions in order to allay her fears. If she’s willing, continue the relationship a little longer. If she’s not, then your instincts are correct, and it’s time to move on. DEAR ABBY is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Julie Cheek ASHEBORO – Julie Cheek, 79, died March 3, 2010. Arrangements are incomplete with Gailes Funeral Home, Asheboro.

Man turns to fishing lures after losing job SALISBURY (AP) – When Rob Fisher lost his job last year due to NASCAR mergers, he decided to turn one of his lifetime goals into a reality. “There are only two ways I can think clearly,” he said. “Either sitting in a tree stand or sitting in a boat.” Fisher, of Salisbury, was fishing with his father last April, discussing a dream of his to design his own fishing lure, and see it in stores. Fueled by his passion, Fisher set a goal for himself to have a fishing lure ready for stores by spring 2010, and he has done just that. He named his company Lil’ Robbies Soft Baits, made completely in the United States. “Nowadays, it seems like everything comes from overseas,” Fisher said. “I wanted to do everything in the U.S. and keep it cheap for the fishermen. “My other goal was to sell the end product at $2 a bag.”

Fisher designed the lure himself. “I kind of had an idea of what I wanted, and wanted something different I hadn’t seen,” he said, noting that his lure was modeled after a crawdad. “I made my own prototype out of metal, and found an established company to pour the bait.” The U.S. company used his prototype to make a mold, and sent him several samples. “I fished with it, I liked it, and I gave them the OK to make a production mold,” Fisher said. Fisher then chose the color combinations for the 15 lures he offers, saying he chose them, “just knowing what seems to work pretty good,” he said. “Most fishermen know.” Colors vary from black to red to orange, silver and red glitter, to color combos such as pink and green. By July 2009, Fisher had prototypes in his hand, and the different-colored lures came in at the beginning of October.

Recurring episodes of fast heartbeat need treatment


ear Dr. Donohue: I have not seen you address SVT, supraventricular tachycardia. I have had it since 2003. In September of 2007, I had the procedure, in which a tube was inserted into my heart to ablate tissue there. However, I continue to have attacks, and they are increasing in duration and frequency. I have seen three electrophysiologists, and the one who did the procedure told me I might need to go for another. Another solution is taking medicines such as flecainide, dofetilide or amiodarone. What do they do to the heart rate? – A.T.



Tachycardia is a fast heartbeat. “Supraventricular” indicates that the origin of this rapid beat is in the upper heart chambers, the ones above the ventricles – the lower, pumping chambers. Many supraventricular tachycardias occur in sudden attacks, paroxysms that are short-lived and stop as quickly as they start. During an attack, people feel heart palpitations, the wild, and forceful beating of a fast heart. They might also experience lightheadedness and feel like they are on the verge of passing out. Your attacks are lasting for longer time periods and are occurring more often. They should be ended, and they can be with either another ablation or with medicines. Ablation, as you say, is done with a specially














equipped catheter – a thin, pliable tube that is inched into the heart through HEALTH a surface blood vesDr. Paul sel. ElecDonohue trophysi■■■ ologists are cardiologists with special training in heart rhythm disorders and in putting an end to them. When the doctor reaches the part of the heart generating the rapid signals, he or she applies radio waves through the catheter to eradicate that tissue. Ablation’s success is quite high. Medicines also can end supraventricular tachycardias, and you mentioned three popular ones. They can have side effects, and some have to be started in the hospital, where the heart can be monitored immediately and for a short time after taking them. They work by dampening the activity in the tissue generating SVT. Either treatment has its pros and cons. For myself, I’d try the ablation again. I don’t like to take daily medicines. Dear Dr. Donohue: I would like to know if polycythemia is the same thing as polymyalgia. – D.S. Polycythemia (poly – many; cyt – cells; hemia – blood), pronounced “POL-ee-sigh-THEME-

ee-uh,” is an overproduction of blood cells by the bone marrow. Symptoms include dizziness, headache, sweating, fatigue and itching after taking a hot shower. Treatment is removal of blood from time to time. Polymyalgia (polymany; my-muscles; algiapain) is muscle and joint pain and stiffness. It occurs at older ages and is due to an errant immune attack. Treatment is with cortisone drugs, usually prednisone. Dear Dr. Donohue: I am a heart patient and have undergone two surgeries four years apart. I am concerned about more testing that might be done on me in the future, like catheterization or a Doppler echo. Could such testing adversely affect my heart? – D.B. You must have undergone catheterization prior to your past heart surgeries. A catheter is a soft tube that is snaked into heart arteries from a blood vessel beneath the skin. When it’s in place, dye is release to see if there is any buildup in the heart arteries. Complications from this procedure are few. Injury to a heart vessel can happen, but such injuries are correctable by surgery. A Doppler echo is a sound-wave picture of the heart or of a large artery. Complications from a Doppler echo are as close to zero as anything in life comes.




Yesterday’s Bible question: Find a verse in Revelation 21 listing eight sins condemning one to the second death. Answer to yesterday’s question: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.” (Revelation 21:8) Today’s Bible question: God is holy. Does He demand all His followers to be holy?

Sci-fi artist Doug Chaffee, who drew this scene, will attend StellarCon 34 in High Point.

Sci-fi, fantasy convention returns to familiar realm BY JIMMY TOMLIN ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER


IGH POINT – No telling who you’ll meet at StellarCon 34, the Triad’s annual science fiction and fantasy convention that opens today at the Best Western High Point Hotel. You might meet Klingons, you might meet Stormtroopers or you might meet one of the mythical creatures of your nightmares. While you’re there, though, you might also meet authors, artists and game designers who have made a name for themselves in the sci-fi genre. “We have literary guests, Web comics, gaming, TV/movie guests – we’re sort of a catch-all science fiction and fantasy event,” says convention manager John Davis. Among this year’s headliners are authors Mike Stackpole, Timothy Zahn and Aaron Allston – all of whom have written “Star Wars” novels – and artist Doug Chaffee, a highly respected artist who paints for NASA and the military, as well as the book and gaming industries. His work has hung in the Smithsonian Institution and has been pub-



StellarCon 34, an annual science fiction/fantasy convention, will be held today through Sunday at the Best Western High Point Hotel, 135 S. Main St. The convention hours are 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. today, 10 a.m. to 2 a.m. Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. On-site registration fees are as follows: • For adults, the cost is $15 for today, $25 for Saturday, $20 for Sunday, or $38 for the entire weekend. • For children ages 6-12, the cost is $5 for today, $10 for Saturday, $5 for Sunday, or $17 for the entire weekend. • For children younger than 6, admission is free. For more information, visit lished in Newsweek, U.S. News & World Report, and several military and science magazines. “He’s a very, very, very talented and accomplished artist,” Davis

says. “A lot of his works are probably hanging in offices of admirals in the Navy right now – that’s how good he is.” Many of the guests will participate in workshops, panel discussions and question-and-answer sessions during the three-day convention. There will also be interactive events, such as cosplay chess – in which people dressed in costumes serve as life-sized chess pieces on a gigantic board – and other types of gaming. There will also be a dealers’ room, where vendors will sell costumes, games, books, movies, T-shirts, artwork and more. Davis expects StellarCon to draw around 500 to 600 attendees. “People like it because it’s a little bit more of an intimate setting,” he says. “If you go to one of the larger conventions, you’re probably gonna stand in line for two hours and maybe get an autograph and a handshake from the guests. But here, there’s a good chance you’ll get to meet the guests and even have a one-on-one conversation with them.” | 888-3579

Author overcomes life obstacles BY JIMMY TOMLIN ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER




IGH POINT – Shirley Maxwell always thought her life story would make a good book, so now she’s written it. “Scattered Pieces,” published by Alabaster Book Publishing of Kernersville, traces the ups and downs of the 74-year-old High Point woman’s life, concluding that stories with a sad beginning can still have a happy ending. “I want people reading this book to see that even though times can get tough, you can still get through it and make something of your life,” Maxwell says. “You don’t have to sit around and feel sorry for yourself.” Born in Littleton, N.C., Maxwell and her brothers were sent to the Mills Home orphanage in Thomasville – she was only 6 years old – when her mother was committed to a mental hospital. After graduating from high school, Maxwell moved to High Point. “Mills Home did so much for

Shirley Maxwell will sign copies of her memoir, “Scattered Pieces,” beginning at 2 p.m. Saturday at DeBeen Espresso, 709 W. Lexington Ave. A second book-signing will be held March 13, beginning at 2 p.m., at Seven Homes Community Thrift, 1311 Johnson St.


Shirley Maxwell pens her memoir. me – I learned about life there,” she says. There’s a lot of sadness in Maxwell’s life – her mother’s commitment to the mental hospital, having to grow up in an orphanage, a couple of painful divorces – but Maxwell insists hers is a story of overcoming obstacles. “I cried a lot writing this book, but there was a lot of joy in writ-


ing it, too,” she says. “A lot of good things have happened in my life, too. I think I’ve accomplished a lot.” Now, for example, Maxwell manages Seven Homes Community Thrift, which supports the Seven Homes foster care and adoption agency in High Point. “My job here is so fulfilling, because I’m helping children and giving back to the community,” Maxwell says. “It just shows what somebody can make of their life, and that’s what I want people to see in the book.” | 888-3579

FIVE CLUBS? “Good grief,” Louie groaned, red-faced. “Maybe they could make five clubs.” Five clubs should fail, but Louie makes four hearts if he keeps trump control. After the king of diamonds wins, he can overtake the queen of trumps with his king and cash the ace. Louie then forces out the ace of diamonds, ruffs the club return and starts to run the diamonds. He loses two trumps and one diamond.


Friday, March 5, 2010 CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Jake Lloyd, 21; Kevin Connolly, 36; Eva Mendes, 36; Dean Stockwell, 74 HAPPY BIRTHDAY: This is a great year to collect old debts, finalize a settlement or take on a new project with the potential to make you wealthy. It is also a year to get in sync mentally, physically and monetarily. You can make changes at home that enable you to save more or raise the value of your premises. You can accomplish whatever you set your mind to. Your numbers are 6, 14, 25, 27, 33, 40, 48 ARIES (March 21-April 19): A residential move or investing in something that will grow in value should be considered. Deal with institutions, corporations or government agencies to clear the way to reach your goals. ★★★ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): A love relationship will be enhanced if you offer your undivided attention. Don’t shy away from a group endeavor because you don’t think you have anything to offer. Your insight and determination will be enough. ★★★ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Avoid letting someone take advantage of you. It’s important to do your own work well, not someone else’s. A change of plans will leave you stranded if you don’t have an alternative idea in mind. ★★★ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t stop until you reach your goal. Network and socialize with your peers and you will be offered an opportunity that far surpasses your current position. Change should be welcomed with open arms. ★★★★★ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Travel about looking at real estate or checking a group or activity that interests you. You can learn from the people you meet along the way. A change in the way you do things or the way you live will be advantageous. ★★ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You have more to offer than you realize and, if you partner with someone who has as much to contribute as you, there is no limit to what you can achieve. Take control of any conversation about future plans and you will end up in a power position. ★★★★ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Put your heart into whatever you do for a living. You will come up with a good idea that can turn into a lucrative endeavor. A romantic tie to someone could develop through a work-related event. ★★★ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Get busy on household duties or improvement plans you want to implement. What you have to offer will change the way someone thinks of you. A change of plans will be to your benefit. ★★★ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don’t give in to criticism that isn’t valid. Fight for your rights or you may end up with a damaged reputation. Don’t push anyone who is not responsive to your advances. Someone less visible will be hiding something of importance. ★★★ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Look at your options and you’ll come up with unique ideas that will help you get ahead professionally. Learn from your past and you will be able to take advantage of a situation that unfolds. Get in touch with someone you haven’t seen for some time. ★★★★ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A short trip will pay off. Get involved in conversations that will help you understand a situation better. An uncertainty you face financially will finally be cleared up so that you can move ahead with your plans. ★★ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Money, contracts, deals and, in general, getting ahead monetarily are apparent if you take charge. A relationship you have with someone special will be enhanced by the decisions you make. Negotiations will favor you. ★★★★★

BRIDGE Unlucky Louie usually accepts his bad results with equanimity, but he was seeing red – in two ways – in today’s deal. Louie held the freakish South hand and landed at four hearts after bidding vigorously. He ruffed the opening lead and led a diamond to dummy’s king. East correctly played low. Louie next took the queen of trumps, ruffed a club and led the queen of diamonds. West discarded, and East won and led another club. Louie ruffed and cashed the A-K of trumps, but East showed out. When Louie led a high diamond, West ruffed, and the defense took the rest. Down three.


DAILY QUESTION You hold: S K Q H 7 3 D A 9 8 4 C A K 10 9 4. You are the dealer. What is your opening call? ANSWER: This problem is awkward. If you open one club, you won’t have a descriptive rebid if partner responds in a major; your hand wouldn’t be strong enough for a “reverse” bid of two diamonds. To open one diamond and bid two clubs next would distort your pattern. I dislike opening 1NT with semibalanced pattern, but that may be the least evil here. South dealer Both sides vulnerable

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

Monroe ousts Bishop




59 54




GREENSBORO – Less than a week ago, Bishop McGuinness hit the century mark against 1A powerhouse Cherryville in a 101-98 overtime victory for the Western sectional championship, and Aaron Toomey netted 51 of those points in an eye-popping performance. Thursday night could not have been more different for Toomey and the Villains. Monroe jumped to a 27-15 halftime lead and completed a draining 47-35 victory at UNC Greensboro’s Fleming Gymnasium. Bishop’s star point guard was held to 20 points in the process, finishing 7-for-20 from the field. Toomey tallied nine rebounds, four assists and two steals, but added an uncharacteristic seven turnovers against Monroe’s fleet of quick guards. The Villains got off to a rough start, turning it over four times in the first four minutes and allowing Monroe to grab a 6-0 lead. Bishop relaxed considerably in the last four minutes of the quarter and knotted the score at 10 to end the period. It took Monroe some time to begin knocking down its open jumpers, but the Redhawks pulled away by outscoring Bishop 17-5 in the second quarter. Toomey faced a bevy of defenders, forcing him out of his rhythm, and was held to six points in the first half. Bishop lost both the turnover margin and the battle for the boards as the Villains were forced to execute the offense more quickly than coach Josh Thompson would have liked. Neither team was particularly effective shooting the basketball, but Monroe beat Bishop to a majority of the loose balls and allowed itself several second-chance opportunities. Redhawks big man Issac Blakeney dominated inside with 11 points and 15 rebounds. After closing to within 33-27 at the beginning of the fourth quarter, the Villains disappeared over the next five minutes, watching as Monroe went on a 12-0 run to stretch the lead to double digits and safely put the game to bed. Jamison Crowder led the Redhawks with 13. Monroe (30-1) will face Hendersonville on Saturday for the right to play in the 1A championship game at the DON DAVIS JR. | HPE Smith Center next Saturday. Atticus Lum was the only other player in double fig- Bishop McGuinness’ Atticus Lum drives past Monroe’s Issac Blakeney during the first half ures for Bishop with 10. The Villains, who won the 1A of their NCHSAA 1A Western Regional semifinal at UNC Greensboro’s Fleming Gym on Thursday night. title last year, finished this winter at 19-11.

Villain girls take different path down same road BY STEVE HANF ENTERPRISE SPORTS WRITER

KERNERSVILLE – A few losses in national tournaments have become the norm the past few years for Bishop McGuinness’ girls basketball team. Those blemishes meant nothing, however, as the Villains steam-rolled through the Northwest Conference on the way to four straight N.C. High School Athletic Association 1A championships. Thanks to graduation losses and Whitney Knight’s transfer, Bishop entered this year’s playoffs with seven defeats, including five against teams in the NWC. For all that, the Villains find themselves back in familiar territory tonight at 8:30 when they meet Avery County in the NCHSAA Western Regional semifinals.



NCHSAA Western scores, schedules. 2D


“It’s definitely been a different path,” Villains coach Brian Robinson said. “Not going in as ‘the favorite’ like we have the last couple years has definitely been different for us – well, for me: The majority of these girls haven’t been there before. Honestly, the path we have taken so far has been great for this team. I think it’s going to prepare them for the atmosphere we’re going to see (tonight).” Bishop (20-7) held it together early this season behind the scoring exploits of junior guard Megan Buckland. But after losses to Mount Airy and North Surry, the turning point arrived for the Villains.

“We had a talk with the team about everyone pulling their own weight. Since mid January, we’ve had more contributions from the younger kids, which has made it a lot easier for Megan and for us as a team.” Buckland no longer had to score 20, 30 points a night just to keep Bishop in it. Sophomore guard Sammi Goldsmith emerged as a key contributor, averaging double figures in the playoffs. Sophomore forward Lauren Cushing has come off the bench in huge playoff wins at places such as Chatham Central, a favorite in the 1A bracket before the Villains rolled in the second half for a double-figure win. “Like every other young kid on our team, they just needed a little bit of confidence in themselves,” Robinson said. “Once they saw, ‘Hey, I can play on the varsity lev-

el and be successful,’ we’ve seen a quick turnaround for our team.” Avery (24-3) hails from Newland, about 35 minutes southwest of Boone. The Vikings make the threehour drive to UNC Greensboro’s Fleming Gym for their second regional in the past three years. Avery beat Hiwassee Dam 60-58 in the sectional semifinal on Lauren Avery’s steal and jumper at the buzzer, then knocked off Robbinsville 68-67 in overtime in the sectional final on a last-second tip-in. Tonight’s winner meets the Mount Airy-Mitchell winner in Saturday’s regional championship at UNCG at 4 p.m. Mount Airy beat Bishop three times this season. The 1A girls championship will be played next Saturday at the Smith Center in Chapel Hill. | 888-3526




eBron James plans to switch from uniform No. 23 to No. 6 next season. The Akron Hammer says he is making this change in honor of his hero, Michael Jordan. His Airness, of course, made the No. 23 his own during an amazing college and professional basketball career. James is one of many folks urging the NBA to retire the No. 23 league-wide in M.J.’s honor. Recall that Major League Baseball retired

Jackie Robinson’s No. 42 several years back, and for good reason. I understand why James and others idolize Jordan. The man revolutionized the NBA. But keep in mind the most famous NBA wearer of No. 6 also left an indelible mark on the game. And as great as Dr. J was, I’m not talking about Julius Erving. Bill Russell wore No. 6 during his legendary career with the Celtics. All Russell did was lead Boston to 11 NBA championships

in 13 seasons. He was a five-time NBA MVP and a 12-time All-Star. His statistics weren’t always flashy. All those championship rings certainly were. Off the court, Russell championed civil rights and always spoke his mind. On the court, there was never a greater champion. Period. The NBA would be wise to retire Russell’s No. 6 first if it chooses to go that route.



Virginia’s Monica Wright left no doubt about who the best player in the Atlantic Coast Conference was this year, sweeping the individual awards. The ACC scoring leader with a 23-point average and steals leader with 3.6 per game, Wright was a preseason All American, and Thursday added the player of the year award to the defensive player honor she got a day earlier.

Wake works overtime for 66-65 victory Look who’s first? Maryland surprises Duke THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

GREENSBORO – Wake Forest put its highest Atlantic Coast Conference tournament seed in 20 years to good use. Brittany Waters scored six of her 21 points in overtime to help the Demon Deacons beat Miami 66-65 on Thursday in the first round of the ACC tournament. Waters delivered a three-point play on an off-balance, sweeping hook shot to give the fifth-seeded Demon Deacons (18-12) a 66-63 lead with 1 minute left. Shenise Johnson had a chance to win the game for 12th-seeded Miami (17-13), but her jumper from the right baseline failed to draw iron as time expired. Sandra Garcia had 18 points and 13 rebounds for Wake Forest, which will play fourth-seeded Georgia Tech in today’s quarterfinals. Former Thomasville High School star Secily Ray added 15 points for the Demon Deacons.

McCallie is the first coach in Division I history to be named a confer-

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) – It’s been a banner season for No. 22 Maryland, the hottest – and easily most surprising – team in the Atlantic Coast Conference. The Terrapins moved into position to earn at least a share of the league regular-season title with their sixth straight victory, a rousing 79-72 conquest of hated Duke on Wednesday night. Maryland hasn’t finished in first place since 2002, when it parlayed that feat into a national championship. In avenging an earlier 21-point defeat at Duke, the Terrapins blew a 14-point lead before breaking open a tight game with a closing 10-3 run that included a gutsy, highlight-reel basket by Greivis Vasquez. “I’m really proud of this team. Everyone stayed tough,” coach Gary Williams said. “We wouldn’t let them get away from us. It was stuck there for a while because things weren’t going real well for

us, but we fought through it.” Sort of like the way Maryland bounced back from earlier losses to Wisconsin, William & Mary and, of course, the Blue Devils. Led by seniors Vasquez, Eric Hayes and Landon Milbourne, the Terrapins (22-7, 12-3) are 8-0 in the ACC at home and a league-best 7-3 overall on the road. With a victory over Virginia on Saturday, Maryland can finish no worse than tied atop the standings with No. 4 Duke, which closes at home against North Carolina. “We just have to make sure we go out there and get another win,” Milbourne said. “That’s one of the things Coach was talking about for this group right here – to get another banner put up. That’s a big goal, and that’s something we can get.” Not bad for a team picked to finish fifth in a preseason poll of the ACC media. “Preseason rankings don’t mean much,” Hayes said after scoring 13

points on 6-for-8 shooting. “If you work hard and believe in the guys on your team, you can do anything. So, it’s one of those things where we’re working hard and it’s been paying off.” Freshman Jordan Williams contributed 15 points and 13 rebounds, but Vasquez is the driving force behind Maryland’s success. The spirited guard scored 20 points, and his final field goal at Comcast Center was typical of his body of work over the past four years. With Maryland nursing a 71-69 lead, Vasquez drove toward the basket, stopped his dribble before the foul line, took two (maybe three) steps to his right and tossed up an off-balance shot with his right arm that bounced off the rim three times before falling through the net with 37 seconds left. Vasquez watched the end result while stumbling backward off the court.

Curry back in Charlotte, but not for SoCon tourney CHARLOTTE (AP) – The Southern Conference moved its basketball tournament here in hopes that Stephen Curry would be playing in his hometown to conclude his senior year at Davidson. “As it turns out he is going to be in Charlotte this weekend,” commissioner John Iamarino said, “just not quite the way we hoped.” Thanks to a scheduling quirk, Curry’s first game in Charlotte as a pro comes Saturday night – right in the middle of the SoCon’s first appearance here since 1971. It left the conference scrambling to adjust the tournament schedule so Davidson won’t be playing at the same time as the Golden State Warriors-Charlotte Bobcats game. “It is kind of ironic. Our only ap-

pearance in Charlotte happens to be SoCon weekend and the tournament happens to be in Charlotte,” Curry said Thursday. “So it’s going to be a fun day if the Cats are still in the tournament. If they are, I’m definitely going to make the game on Saturday. I’ll be there cheering them on.” But Davidson making it to the tournament’s second day is no guarantee. After going 62-4 in the league over the past three seasons with two NCAA tournament trips and a magical run to the NCAA Midwest Regional final in 2008, the Curryless Wildcats (16-14, 11-7) fell to the middle of the pack this season and will face Elon this afternoon. The schedule adjustment puts Davidson in the afternoon session at the expense of North Division top

seed Appalachian State (20-11, 13-5), which will play in the evening in its opener Saturday. The departure of Curry, the SoCon’s all-time leading scorer, has left a wide-open race for the automatic bid to the NCAA tournament. Wofford (23-8, 15-3) was the South Division champion and earned the No. 1 overall seed behind coach of the year Mike Young and Noah Dahlman, voted player of the year by the league’s coaches. They’ll likely be challenged by College of Charleston (20-10, 14-4) and Appalachian State. The Mountaineers jumped to the top of the league in coach Buzz Peterson’s first season in his second stint with the school behind the media’s pick for player of the year, Donald Sims.

Media picks Sims, Young for SoCon honors SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) – Donald Sims of Appalachian State was named the Southern Conference player of the year and Wofford’s Mike Young took coach of the year honors. The league announced the selections by the media on Thursday. Sims led the Southern

Conference with 20.4 points per game. He also leads the nation in foul shooting at 95 percent. Young helped Wofford to the league’s regularseason championship at 15-3. The Terriers went 238, their most wins since the 1963-64 season. Davidson forward Jake Cohen was picked as the

league’s top freshman. On Wednesday, league coaches voted Wofford’s Noah Dahlman as player of the year and David-

son’s JP Kuhlman as its best freshman. Southern Conference coaches picked Young as the top coach.

Southern Modified Tour breaks with tradition BY GREER SMITH ENTERPRISE SPORTS WRITER

One of the traditions on the NASCAR Southern Modified Tour will be broken this weekend. The Tour has normally opened at Caraway Speedway. Not this time. With Caraway cutting back its number of races and NASCAR seeking to upgrade the schedule, the tour will open Friday night with its first race on the quarter-mile Legends Car track at Atlanta Motor Speedway. The 150-lapper will follow after qualifying for Sunday’s Cup race on AMS’ 1.522-mile big track. The Tour will then move to Caraway on Sunday, March 14. “We all felt that when NASCAR took this series under its wing in 2005, it was going to work hard to help grow modified racing in the southeastern United States,” Burt Myers said. “I feel I can speak on behalf of the drivers that we

appreciate everything NASCAR does to help our series grow, and I especially want to thank (Atlanta owner) Bruton Smith and (general manager) Ed Clark who have welcomed us to Atlanta.” The Atlanta race will be among three at Speedway Motorsports Inc. tracks owned by Smith. The others are the Wednesday before the Saturday night Cup race in August at Bristol and on qualifying night for the fall Cup race at Charlotte Motor Speedway. “I also want to thank Mr. Smith for hosting Whelen Modified races at Bristol and Charlotte later this season.” The tracks the modifieds will use at Atlanta and Charlotte are similar to Bowman Gray Stadium in Winston-Salem. Myers, his brother Jason, Junior Miller, Tim Brown, Lee Jeffreys and Brad Robbins are among stadium regulars on a 22-driver entry list. “We are bringing our Bowman Gray car down here and feel real good about

our chances to run well,” Myers said. “I’m sure we will tweak the car in practice because every track has its own tendencies and characteristics, but we feel pretty confident we have a chance to run pretty good.” Miller, L.W. Miller and Brian Loftin are among former series champs entered. George Brunnhoelzl III, the 2009 champ, is expected to compete on NASCAR’s Modified Tour in the northeastern U.S. Gary Putnam, the car chief for Jamie McMurray in the Cup series, and Corie LaJoie, son of two-time Nationwide Series champ driver Randy LaJoie, are expected to make their debuts. Putnam will drive a car that he and McMurray’s crew chief Kevin Manion own. Ryan Newman will drive it at Bristol and two northeastern Tour events at New Hampshire. In another break from the past, NASCAR said that it will begin awarding bonus points for leading in Southern

Modified Tour and Modified Tour races. The bonuses will be the same as the rest of NASCAR’s touring series – five points for leading at least one lap and five points for leading the most laps.

PRACTICE, PRACTICE Caraway will start cranking up this Saturday with practice from 1-5 p.m. in advance of the March 14 season-opener that will also include a 150-lap Late Model Stock race in addition to the Southern Modified race. Caraway isn’t the only track with practice scheduled Saturday. North Wilkesboro Speedway, closed since 1996, will unlock the gates for an open test session on Saturday from 8:30 a.m.–4 p.m. But, it will cost competitors $300 to participate. The five-eighths mile facility is scheduled to reopen for racing on Labor Day weekend. | 888-3519

President to Democrats: Seize the moment WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Support from his own party in doubt, President Barack Obama summoned more than a dozen House Democrats to the White House Thursday, pleading with them to put aside their qualms, seize a historic moment and vote for his massive health care overhaul. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the opportunity of a generation, he told them â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and a chance to revive the partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s agenda after his rough first year in office. In back-to-back meetings in the Oval Office and Roosevelt Room, Obama urged uneasy rank-andfile moderates and progressives to focus on the positives rather than their deep disappointment with parts of the bill. The lawmakers said Obama assured them the legislation

was merely the first step, and he promised to work with them in the future to improve its provisions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The president Obama very pointedly talked about how important this is historically,â&#x20AC;? said Rep.

Demonstrators rally on the campus at UCLA in Los Angeles on Thursday. Students, teachers, parents and others rallied throughout California and many other states to protest deep cuts in funding for schools and universities in what is being called the â&#x20AC;&#x153;March 4th National Day of Action for Public Education.â&#x20AC;?

Protesters target funding cuts at campuses BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Students carried out raucous rallies on college campuses nationwide Thursday in protests against deep education cuts that turned violent as demonstrators threw punches and ice chunks in Wisconsin and blocked university gates and smashed car windows in California. At least 15 protesters were detained by University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee police after as many as 150 students gathered at the student union then moved

to an administrative building to deliver petitions to the school chancellor. University spokesman Tom Luljak said campus police allowed one person inside, But when she emerged, she encouraged everyone to rush the building, he said. The violence began when police tried to turn them away. No serious injuries were reported. The school was among dozens of nationwide campuses hit with marches, strikes, teach-ins

and walkouts in what was being billed as the March 4th National Day of Action for Public Education. In Northern California, rowdy protesters blocked major gates at two universities and smashed the windows of a car. Protesters at the University of California, Santa Cruz surrounded the car while its uninjured driver was inside. Earlier, demonstrators blocked campus gates. University provost David Kliger said there were reports

of protesters carrying clubs and knives, but Santa Cruz police Capt. Steve Clark could not confirm those reports. No arrests had been made. An advisory posted on the school Web site urged people to avoid the campus because of safety concerns. At the University of California, Berkeley, a small group of protesters formed a human chain blocking a main gate to the campus. Later in the day, hundreds gathered for a peaceful rally.

CEO: Citigroup has changed since crisis WASHINGTON (AP) — Facing sharp questions from bailout overseers, Citigroup Inc. CEO Vikram Pandit said Thursday the bank is “fundamentally different” than the tangled behemoth that took more than $45 billion in government aid during the recent financial crisis. “I am pleased to say we are in a far different and much healthier position,” Pandit said in testimony Thursday before the Congressional Oversight Panel. The independent watchdog group oversees the $700 billion financial bailout. Pandit said Citi’s experience during the crisis showed the need for a clearer process to deal with large, failing financial firms — a key priority of the Obama administration.

Insurers debate increases WASHINGTON (AP) — Keeping up the pressure for President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius chastised top insurance executives Thursday over proposed double-digit rate hikes she said top the list of reasons that Congress must quickly pass his plan. Obama’s chief health care Cabinet member convened a White House meeting with the CEOs of Wellpoint, Aetna, Cigna, UnitedHealth Group and other companies, as well as state insurance commissioners from Kansas, West Virginia and Pennsylvania. On the agenda:

proposed premium hikes Sebelius said are making consumers’ jaws drop around the country. The increases affect people buying their own coverage directly, as opposed to the majority of Americans, who have employer provided policies. Wellpoint subsidiary Anthem Blue Cross recently announced plans to boost individual insurance premiums in California by as much as 39 percent. Since then, Sebelius said she’s heard from many Americans who are concerned they will be priced out of the market. “They’re terrified they’re next,” she said. Obama has proposed cre-

ating a new federal consumer protection agency that would have the power to roll back premium increases, and order refunds. But Sebelius said the long-term solution is a new health insurance marketplace that Obama wants to create for individuals and small businesses. It would foster competition, helping to keep rate increases in check. “We want to make sure Americans have some options for affordable health coverage in the future,” she said. Obama dropped by the meeting and told participants that the current system is not sustainable,

Sebelius told reporters after the meeting. Sebelius said the executives agreed with that assessment. Although the insurance industry opposes much of Obama’s overhaul plan, the CEOs said they share the administration’s concern about rising cost. It’s leading their healthiest customers to drop coverage, leaving the companies with a relatively sicker pool of people.

Bristol-Myers: 60 drugs in testing NEW YORK (AP) — Executives at drugmaker Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. are telling analysts at a business briefing they have 60 potential drugs in development, seven in late-stage studies. The company says it expects future revenue from those medicines and growing sales from existing drugs to help offset an expected plunge in Plavix sales in 2012. That’s when U.S. generic competition will start slashing sales of the $6 billion-a-year blood thinner, the world’s second-best-selling drug.

AB InBev sees flat beer sales BRUSSELS (AP) — The world’s largest brewer and maker of Budweiser reported Thursday a fourth quarter profit of $1.28 billion, helped by cost cuts and price hikes, but said global beer sales were stagnant and forecast no rebound in 2010. Anheuser-Busch InBev SA sold 0.7 percent less beer and soft drinks in 2009 during the economic downturn and says that global beer demand is neither growing nor shrinking.

Oil prices drop, but gas rises NEW YORK (AP) — Oil prices fell as the dollar increased against other major currencies. Benchmark crude for April delivery fell 49 cents to $80.38 on the Nymex as the U.S. Dollar Index gained 0.6 percent. At the pump, retail gas prices ticked higher overnight to a new national average of $2.706 per gallon, according to AAA.

The real key will be bending the cost curve. Unless we do so, premiums will continue to rise uncontrollably with or without reform.”


WASHINGTON (AP) — The Treasury Department has received a record $1.54 billion from the sale of warrants it received from Bank of America as part of the support it provided during the financial crisis. The Treasury said Thursday it sold 272.17 million warrants in an auction held because Bank of America and the government could not agree upon an acceptable price. Warrants are financial instruments that allow the holder to buy stock in the future at a fixed price. The $1.54 billion total is the largest amount raised from a single institution from the sale of warrants as part of the government’s $700 billion financial rescue effort.

Jobless claims drop, retail climbs WASHINGTON (AP) — New claims for jobless benefits fell last week in a sign that layoffs may be easing as the economy slowly recovers. Meanwhile, retailers reported Thursday that sales rose in February by the largest amount since November 2007, a month before the recession began. Factory orders also rose in January, the Commerce Department said. The reports provide fresh evidence that the economy is steadily growing. But it’s not clear when that improvement will translate into new hiring. The Labor Department said Thursday that initial claims for unemployment insurance fell by 29,000 to a seasonally adjusted 469,000.

That nearly matches Wall Street analysts’ estimates of 470,000. Still, last week’s drop only partly reverses a sharp rise in claims in the previous two weeks. The four-week average of claims, which smooths out volatility, fell by 3,500 to 470,750. Despite the drop, the average has risen by about 20,000 since the beginning of the year. Initial claims are considered a gauge of the pace of layoffs and an indication of companies’ willingness to hire new workers. But they have been volatile in recent weeks as last month’s severe snowstorms in the Northeast have distorted the data. Claims rose sharply two weeks ago partly because several states processed a backlog of claims that had built up from previous weeks

when government offices closed due to bad weather. No states reported backlogs this week, a Labor Department analyst said. “It might be another couple of weeks until we get a clear picture of where claims are settling in,” said Conrad DeQuadros, an economist at RDQ Economics. In another sign that companies are raising output without adding many jobs, the department said in a separate report that productivity rose by 6.9 percent in the fourth quarter, higher than analysts’ expectations of a 6.3 percent rise. While higher productivity, or output per hour worked, raises living standards in the long run, it also enables companies to get by with fewer workers.

Factory orders rise 1.7 percent WASHINGTON (AP) — Orders to U.S. factories posted the biggest increase in four months in January, led by a surge in demand for commercial aircraft. The increase was another sign that manufacturing is helping to support the economic recovery. The Commerce Department said Thursday that factory orders rose 1.7 percent in January, slightly below the 1.8 percent gain economists had expected.

TiVo prevails in patent rights case NEW YORK (AP) — A federal appeals court has sided with TiVo in the second phase of its longrunning patent lawsuit against Dish Network. TiVo Inc. says the decision Thursday paves the way for the digital video recorder pioneer to col-

lect about $300 million from Dish Network Corp. in damages and contempt sanctions it had been awarded. TiVo has also sued AT&T and Verizon for allegedly infringing on certain DVR patents. Shares of TiVo rose by $4.81, or more than 47 per-

cent, to $15.02 in midday trading Thursday. Dish Network Corp. lost $1.23, or 5.7 percent, to $20.48. Dish says it will seek a review of the threejudge panel’s decision by the full U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.



Bra business holds up in Fayetteville MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

FAYETTEVILLE — The bra and shapewear business has been quite good to Maidenform Brands Inc. So good, in fact, that the more than 300 employees who work at Maidenform’s distribution center in the Cumberland County Industrial Park required some more stretching room. For years, Maidenform has operated at a main building and an annex in the park that was once a Belk distribution center. It has now leased an additional building in the park that most recently was occupied by Lear Siegler Services Inc., said Steve Albin, Maidenform’s vice president of distribution. Albin said the lease was signed in late December. Work in the building began in January, and the distribution process there became fully operational last week. The extra space has al-

lowed Maidenform to separate tasks. The former Belk building is now being used for mass market shipments, Albin said. Maindenform’s Donna Karan line and export orders have been moved to the former Lear Siegler building, where maintenance on Army equipment, trucks and Humvees was once performed. Last year, Lockheed Martin received a fiveyear, $203 million contract to manage the Field Logistics Readiness Center at Fort Bragg. The contract was previously held by Lear Siegler. The Donna Karan line is among those that will continue to open doors for Maidenform, company executives said Wednesday during a fourth quarter earnings report. Maidenform’s net income for the quarter was $7.7 million, compared with $2.4 million during the same period last year. Revenue was up more than 15per-

cent to $109.2million. After the earnings call, Maidenform’s stock price rose to $19.91 at one point Wednesday -- the highest price in more than two years. Maidenform has new business ventures planned for 2010, including a new junior line called Charmed, which Maidenform CEO Maurice Reznik told analysts will launch in the latter half of the year in about 300 department stores. The company also plans to launch Maidenform at Home, which Reznik told analysts will involve “expert intimate apparel fit specialists (selling) bras and shapewear through the direct selling model used by companies like Pampered Chef and Mary Kay.” In 2009, continued strong performance in Maidenform’s shapewear -- now about a third of the company’s business, Reznik said -- helped offset a decline in department store sales.

Dow bounces back for 2010

200-day Average



NEW YORK (AP) — Optimism about the government’s February jobs report sent the Dow Jones industrials back into the black for 2010. Stocks ended Thursday with a moderate advance after managing only modest moves for much of the day. Investors seemed to set aside concerns about the day’s mixed economic reports and focus instead on the Labor Department’s jobs report, due Friday morning. The monthly snapshot of employment is widely considered to be the most important reading on the economy because a lasting recovery won’t be possible without more jobs being created. An unexpected drop in pending home sales held the market to a tight range for most of Thursday’s trading. The National Association of Realtors said that its index of home sales agreements fell 7.6 percent in January from December. Sales contracts fell to the lowest level since April. The housing numbers chilled some of the enthusiasm about stronger February sales at many retailers. Abercrombie & Fitch Co., Nordstrom Inc. and Target Corp. all posted monthly sales that topped analysts’ expectations. Wal-Mart Stores Inc. raised its dividend 11 percent.

Greece offers new bond issue ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Greece raised badly needed cash with a bond issue Thursday, passing a key test of its ability to avoid a disastrous debt default and dig out of a financial crisis that has shaken the European Union. The bond was oversubscribed — meaning demand exceeded available bonds — within an hour of the book opening, with €7 billion ($9.5 billion) in offers received. The government was seeking a maximum of €5 billion ($6.8 billion), said the chief of

Greece’s debt management agency, Petros Christodoulou. Government spokesman George Petalotis said market response to the issue was encouraging. “We are pleased because there is very heavy demand, and that means something, it is an indication.” The sale reflects on Greece’s ability to raise money to pay off expiring bonds and avoid the risk of default. But although the final offer and yield figures were not immedi-

ately available, a note from UniCredit Research said the yield was expected to be around 6.5 percent — more than double the yield on benchmark German bonds of similar maturity. “While expensive for the issuer, this yield level is about 50 basis points lower than last week,” the note said. Fifty basis points equals half a percentage point. The announcement of the issue comes a day after debt-ridden Greece detailed a whole new round of painful austerity measures.

EU wary of Greece seeking IMF help BERLIN (AP) — Who’s afraid of the IMF? Greece is betting that the major European Union powers just might be. The heavily indebted Balkan country, facing German and French reluctance to pony up and help bail it out as a fellow euro user, has declared it may turn to the Washingtonbased international lending agency. But an unprecedented IMF bailout of a eurozone member country would signal that the European currency union can’t handle its own troubles — and some are now calling for the creation of a European

monetary fund instead. Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou, who travels to Berlin today to meet with Chancellor Angela Merkel before heading to Paris to meet President Nicolas Sarkozy Sunday, has warned that if the new austerity measures it adopted this week fail to impress his counterparts in the euro zone, Greece will turn to the IMF for help. “From today the problem can’t be considered ‘Greek’. We are doing what we must and more,” Papandreou said. “So now, it is the time of Europe.” If the EU and the markets don’t respond “as we would

wish, because of speculative behavior, our last resort would be the International Monetary Fund.” Greece is already receiving technical help and advice from the IMF, but has not appealed for a bailout. The idea that Greece is considering appealing for help from the IMF is akin to drawing a line in the sand. It would also put the euro zone, and Germany as its largest economy, in the awkward position of defending the integrity of the 16-nation euro from criticism that it it cannot stand up to tough tests on its own.

Cole Haan puts kibosh on exotic skins YARMOUTH, Maine (AP) – Nike subsidiary Cole Haan has agreed to eliminate exotic skins like lizard, snake and alligator from its product lines. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals said Thursday that Cole Haan is the first maker of high-end accessories and shoes to ban exotic

skins. Cole Haan, which is based in New York and Yarmouth, Maine, defines exotic as including alligator, crocodile, lizard, snake and ostrich. Nike spokesman Nate Tobecksen says products using those materials will be eliminated across the entire Nike line after the summer retail season.

Lower interest rates may not be in the cards NEW YORK (AP) – It sounds like a victory for credit card users – a rule that would require banks to review any interest rate hikes every six months, and lower rates when appropriate. Yet loopholes in the Federal Reserve’s latest proposal could let banks avoid rolling back rates in most cases. To start, the proposal issued Wednesday wouldn’t require banks to use the same factors for raising a rate when reviewing whether to lower it. That means a bank could cite a new set of criteria when evaluating rate hikes every six months.

NC joins states named ‘Race to the Top’ finalists MIAMI (AP) – The U.S. Department of Education named 16 finalists Thursday in the first round of its “Race to the Top” competition, which will deliver $4.35 billion in school reform grants. Selected from a pool of 41 applicants are: Colorado, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina and Tennessee. The winners will be chosen in April, and a second round of applications accepted in June. “These states are an example for the country of what is possible when adults come together to do the right thing for children,” U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan said. The grants are designed to reward states that have adopted and will continue implementing innovative reforms to improve student performance. The money is part of President Barack Obama’s economic stimulus law, which provided an unprecedented $100 billion for schools. Much of that has gone toward preventing teacher layoffs and addressing other budget concerns. The $4.35 billion “Race to the Top” fund is targeted specifically for education reform. Applications were read and scored by panels of five peer reviewers. Those with the highest average score were selected to visit Washington later this month to present their proposals.

Pilot killed when plane crashes into Virginia house LOUISA, Va. (AP) – Officials say a plane crashed into a house in central Virginia, killing the pilot and setting the building on fire. Authorities say the owner of the one-and-a-half story house

was in the basement and was able to escape. Virginia state police say the plane landed around noon Thursday at Louisa (loh-WEE’sah) County Airport and then

took off with 148 gallons of fuel before crashing minutes later about a quarter of a mile from the airport. No one else was on board. Federal Aviation Administra-

Paterson’s stature erodes even in stomping grounds NEW YORK (AP) – David Paterson, New York’s first black governor and a product of the Harlem political machine, faced rapidly waning support Thursday as many of the influential black leaders who have worked with him for decades Paterson gathered to discuss crafting a message to persuade him to resign. The Rev. Al Sharpton convened a meeting of black New York City politicians at a soul food restaurant in Harlem to consider asking Paterson to leave office, according to a senior state Democrat briefed on the meeting. Sharpton was going into the meeting with an open mind, wanting to do what is best

for New Yorkers, said spokeswoman Rachel Noerdlinger. “There is no pre-arranged crafting of any message going into the leadership meeting,” she said. A state panel accused Paterson on Wednesday of illegally obtaining World Series tickets, then lying about it. That charge came on top of an investigation of whether the governor or staff members had inappropriate contact with a woman who made – but later dropped – an abuse complaint against an aide. Testimony by communications director Peter Kauffmann was key to the decision by the Public Integrity Commission to charge Paterson with an ethics violation.

tion spokesman Jim Peters says preliminary witness accounts were that the Cessna T303 Crusader’s engines quit. The National Transportation Safety Board will investigate.

2 Pentagon police officers shot WASHINGTON (AP) – A gunman opened fire at the subway entrance to Pentagon complex Thursday evening, wounding two Pentagon police officers, a spokesman said. The alleged gunman also was wounded, said Chris Layman, a spokesman for the Pentagon Force Protection Agency. Authorities said all

three were taken to a hospital. None the injuries were thought to be lifethreatening, Layman said. Layman said the suspect walked up to the subway entrance at 6:40 p.m. and opened fire. He hit two officers. The Pentagon officers fired back, and the suspect was hit. His injures are more serious.
