Study: Sewer spill less than thought Officials discover no criminal intent BY DARRICK IGNASIAK ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

THOMASVILLE – A third-party environmental study of last summer’s sewer spill has been released by Thomasville officials, indicating the spill that led to a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency investigation may have been much less than reported. The study, conducted by Brown and Caldwell Environmental Engineers and Consultants, investigated the actions of Thomasville employees, prioritized short-term and longterm needs of the collection system and determined the suspected length and severity of the spill. City Manager Kelly Craver said the investigation of Thomas-

INCENTIVE PAY Replacement for Mission Possible gains tentative approval BY DAVID NIVENS ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER


GUILFORD COUNTY – A revised teacher incentive pay plan won tentative approval this week from the Guilford County Board of Education. The board voted 7-2 for the plan so Superintendent Mo Green’s staff can start seeking grant funds to pay for as much as 40 percent of the annual $4.4 million cost. The proposed strategic compensation plan would replace Mission Possible and two other programs in August 2011 to help the district recruit and retain employees for hard-to-staff positions. “We will apply for the grants and then come back with a budget we can recommend,” said Amy Holcombe, the district’s executive director of talent development. The revised program would decrease incentives for principals at target schools from $15,000 to

Test scores: Most Mission Possible schools have made gains in annual test scores. Recruitment: Incentives have helped recruit highly qualified teachers to 30 low-performing schools. Turnover: Teacher and principal turnover has decreased from a high of 30 percent two years ago to about 12 percent.

$10,000 and raise them for math and other teachers of tested subjects. The maximum bonus for math teachers would be $16,500. Unlike Mission Possible schools, all employees at target schools, including cafeteria workers and custodians, would earn bonuses.

“I like that, but we need to make sure that the money is used so that students make progress,” said Sandra Alexander, an at-large board member. Target schools would be selected based on an index considering staffing difficulty and school test performance below district test averages. Schools that raise their performance would leave the program over several years. Several board members were uneasy about whether money would be available to pay incentives as economic troubles continue. Alexander and board member Paul Daniels voted against the proposal. Green assured the board that if budget adjustments are needed later, “we can ask to make changes.” The board also voted 10-0 to post on the Web until March 19 proposed changes to the district staff layoff policy. | 888-3626

Paul Mitchell Thomasville city attorney ville employees did not reveal any criminal intent to create a spill or cover up any spill information. Craver also said Pease Associates Engineering has prepared a preliminary engineering report that indicates primary construction needs. The spill, which began in mid-July and ended Aug. 4, came from the North Hamby Creek Outfall line near Baptist Children’s Home Road, and sewage spilled into the North Hamby Creek in the Yadkin/Pee Dee River Basin, which flows into High Rock Lake. The spill initially was reported by the city on Aug. 4 to the N.C. Division of Water Quality as 385,000 gallons, but the EPA made Thomasville employees recalculate the amount in September. Yadkin Riverkeeper Dean Naujoks initiated the EPA investigation after receiving a tip from an employee at the Thomasville Wastewater Treatment Plant

HIGH POINT – Open Door Ministries is inviting the community to hear about its work with the homeless and others in need at its annual Celebration Dinner and Silent Auction. Scheduled for March 23 at Wesley Memorial United Methodist Church, the event will serve as an opportunity for the High Point nonprofit organization to showcase its work over the past year, as well as some of the achievements of its clients and staff members. Organizers plan to have all the catering for the dinner done by clients of the ministry who have gone through culinary school at Second Harvest Food Bank. “We’ll also talk about new programs and update progress with the Community Resource Network, which is our new network of eight organizations that are doing financial assistance in the city of High Point,” said Steve Key, Open Door Ministries’ executive director. “That’s been a real excit-

Forsyth teachers plan rally against cuts

Trial of man charged in police killing goes to jury


WINSTON-SALEM –The Forsyth County Association of Educators invited all 3,250 members to a meeting Wednesday to urge the state to restore cuts to local school systems. Because of state cuts and increases in costs for retirement and health-care costs, the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County school system is looking at having to cut $5.2 million from its budget for the 2010-2011 school year. At a Tuesday meeting of the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Board of Edu-


WINSTON-SALEM – Attorneys in the murder trial of Keith Antoine Carter finished closing arguments just after noon Wednesday. Carter is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Sgt. Howard Plouff, who was fatally shot outside the former Red Rooster nightclub on Jonestown Road in the morning hours of Feb. 23, 2007. He had gone to the nightclub to help off-duty sheriff’s deputies who were trying to break up fights that had spilled out into the parking lot. Assistant District Attorney David Hall said in his closing argument that Plouff was a man who dedicated his life to protecting and serving his community as a police officer and that he was protecting and serving when he went to the Red Rooster. “On Feb. 23, 2007, he laid down his life doing just that,” Hall said. Hall said Carter threw a chair at another man while he was in the club and then when he was outside, full of anger, went to his car, grabbed a gun, loaded it and shot into a crowd of people. He fired a 9mm handgun seven times, with one of the bullets hitting Plouff.

Groups aim again to reduce spanking in schools

RALEIGH (AP) – The eldest son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush said in a North Carolina political appearance he doesn’t expect his father to make a run for president in 2012. George P. Bush made the comments on Wednesday at state Republican Party headquarters in Raleigh while in the state on business. He said his father is enjoying the private sector while staying active in conservative causes and education reform. Jeb Bush left his job as Florida governor in 2007 and has been among a handful of GOP notables mentioned as possible presidential candidates.

RALEIGH (AP) – Children’s advocates in North Carolina are this year seeking a spanking ban on students with disabilities after losing political tussles over corporal punishment in public schools the past few years. Equipped with a report showing corporal punishment was used more than 1,400 times in 26 school districts last school year, speakers at a General Assembly education committee asked lawmakers Wednesday to consider a paddling ban for children with physical, mental or learning challenges when they reconvene in Raleigh in May. There are better and more positive ways for teachers and administrators to deal with these children for their disruptive behavior than

hitting them, said Sheri Strickland, president of the North Carolina Association of Educators and a longtime teacher of disabled children, which comprise about 13 percent of the state’s public school population. “I didn’t hit my children for not knowing how to read ... and I wasn’t going to hit my children for not knowing appropriate behavior,” Strickland said. “We know that it’s critical to a child’s academic success to have positive contact with caring adults.” The new effort comes after the Legislature has declined to approve broader spanking bans. The House rejected in 2007 a statewide prohibition in all 115 school districts as opponents argued current state law should remain in place giving local education

boards the choice to decide whether spanking is effective. The House approved by a wide margin last year a bill giving parents the option of exempting their children from corporal punishment in the district where such a penalty is still carried out, but the Senate narrowly defeated the idea. Now advocates have scaled back their request. “That’s our limited request to you to consider in this session,” Tom Vitaglione, a senior fellow at Action for Children, told legislators. Thirty states and the District of Columbia have barred corporal punishment in the public schools, according to The Center for Effective Discipline, an Ohiobased group seeking to end the practice.


‘Midnight knitter’ leaves sweaters across town WEST CAPE MAY, N.J. (AP) – Someone is spinning quite a yarn over one New Jersey shore town. An unknown person dubbed The Midnight Knitter by West Cape May residents is covering tree branches and lamp poles with little sweaters under cover of darkness. Mayor Pam Kaithern

says police are looking into the guerrilla crocheting, which technically is against the law because it is being done on public property without permission. The mayor and many residents admit they’re enthralled by the rainbow of colors that has popped up.

Resident Susan Longacre takes a walk each morning in Wilbraham Park, where several tree branches and light poles have gotten the treatment. She thinks it’s great. Even those who aren’t thrilled admit the yarn is better than spray-painted graffiti.

who claimed plant officials intentionally underreported the spill totals to the media. After the EPA made Thomasville officials recalculate the spill, the city reported to the N.C. Division of Water Quality that 15.93 million gallons of raw sewage entered Hamby Creek in July and August. Although they released that amount, Thomasville officials questioned if the spill was actually 15.93 million gallons, causing the city to hire Brown and Caldwell to conduct the study, among several other reasons. “We did what lawyers call due diligence,” City Attorney Paul Mitchell said. “That’s when you think something is true, but you just go the extra mile just to prove that it’s true, so we got an outside agency, these scientists, to do all the research we possibly could get done. What we have there in front of you, the public, God and everybody else, is the best evidence as to what we know.”

The study’s executive summary states that “insufficient data exist to quantify the duration and volume” of the wastewater spill with certainty. Brown and Caldwell, however, did estimate the spill to be about 4.6 million gallons. Significant long-term environmental impacts from the sewer spill are not expected and the raw sewage was not discharged into a drinking water supply, according to the study’s executive summary. “The city of Thomasville is moving forward to correct sewer collection system shortcomings, better train its personnel and equip itself to meet future sewer challenges,” Craver said. “Tremendous funding challenges face this city to reach these goals. The city is dedicated to securing these funds by whatever means necessary, dedicating them to the betterment of the sewer system.”

cation, the association’s president, Tripp Jeffers, said that none of the cuts would be acceptable. “We refuse to beat up on this school district, when these cuts are proposed only because of the irresponsible actions of the state in cutting public education by $225 million this year and $350 million next year,” Jeffers said. “Our local school district is only reacting to the actions of the state.” With organizing efforts to lobby for changes at the state level in mind, the association turned its regular monthly meeting for representatives into an informational session.

Israeli plan overshadows Biden visit



Families: 3 Americans detained in Iran call home MINNEAPOLIS – Cindy Hickey had rehearsed what she would say to her son when she finally got to talk to him months after he was detained in Iran. When the time came, the conversation lasted only about a minute, she said, “so it was hard to say a lot.� But Hickey came away from the phone call hopeful that her son, Shane Bauer, 27, and two other Americans held for nearly eight months in Iran, will be home soon.

Pelosi, D-Calif., offered no details, and other officials cautioned that any final deal would hinge on cost estimates under preparation at the Congressional Budget Office.

California boy who called 911 during break-in thanks dispatcher NORWALK, Calif. (AP) – A 7-year-old boy who called 911 from a locked bathroom while armed robbers threatened his parents hugged and highfived on Wednesday the sheriff’s dispatcher who took his call. The boy, identified only as Carlos, told reporters at a news conference that he remained calm during the ordeal because his mother used to make him practice dialing 911 in case of emergencies. How did his mother say he did? “Excellent!� the secondgrader said. Carlos, sporting a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Dept. baseball cap, gave a hug to dispatcher Monique Patino, who called the boy “my little hero.� “I said he was very brave and I’m very proud of what he did,� Patino said, occasionally dabbing tears from her cheek.


Carlos, 7, hugs the dispatcher, Monique Patino, who took his call at the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s dispatch center, Wednesday in Norwalk, Calif. The assailants held the parents at gunpoint Tuesday while the boy and his 6-year-old sister hid in a bathroom. Carlos told Patino breathlessly that there

was “some guy who’s going to kill my mom and dad� and begged authorities to “bring cops. A lot of them! ... And bring soldiers, too.� About 90 seconds into the call, his sister starts screaming as someone apparently breaks into the bathroom. The line stays connected, and a distraughtsounding Patino can be heard telling colleagues what she’d heard. “Just hearing them scream and crying for help, I just felt their fear through the phone,� said Patino, herself a mother of 7- and 8-year-old children. Carlos said there were three assailants. They left the home without stealing anything when Carlos told them he’d called 911, authorities said. Detectives were trying to determine the motive for the break-in.

Study suggests too many invasive heart tests given NEW YORK (AP) – A troublingly high number of U.S. patients who are given angiograms to check for heart disease turn out not to have a significant problem, according to the latest study to suggest Americans get an excess of medical tests.

ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Democrats claimed momentum Wednesday in their drive to enact the sweeping health care legislation sought by President Barack Obama, citing near agreement on crucial issues despite persistent Republican efforts to knock them off stride. Obama himself, rallying support outside Washington for the second time this week, shouted to a crowd in Missouri, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The time for talk is over. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to vote.â&#x20AC;? At the Capitol, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that after days of secretive talks, key Democrats were â&#x20AC;&#x153;pretty closeâ&#x20AC;? to accord on additional subsidies to help lower-


Feds probe Toyota Prius crash in NY HARRISON, N.Y. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The crash of a Toyota Prius in New York caught the attention of federal regulators Wednesday after the driver said it accelerated on its own, then lurched down a driveway, across a road and into a stone wall. The crash heightens the attention surrounding unintended acceleration in Toyota vehicles and a recall involving more than 8 million vehicles to address gas pedals that can become sticky or trapped under floor mats. The Department of Transportation is looking into the New York crash, spokeswoman Olivia Alair said Wednesday. Capt. Anthony Marraccini of the police department in Harrison, north of New York City, said that a regional Toyota official asked to collect the Prius involved in the crash but that the police are â&#x20AC;&#x153;not prepared to release it just yet.â&#x20AC;? He said he wanted to see first if a federal agency wants to join or take over the investigation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This involved potentially a great safety hazard and could be something of na-

The boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 5-4 decision Wednesday night means 29 out of 61 schools will shut down at the end of the school year.

The driver of the Toyota Prius told police that the car accelerated on its own, then lurched down a driveway, across a road and into a stone wall. tional interest,â&#x20AC;? he said. Besides, he said, the damaged car belongs to the owner, not to Toyota. When police release the Prius, Toyota will evaluate it to determine the cause of the accident, company spokesman Brian Lyons said. The silver-gray 2005 Prius was taken to a police

parking lot. Its front end was severely pushed in, the hood was buckled and the front bumper and one front headlight were broken. The Prius is not on Toyotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recall list for the sticky accelerator problem; however, the 2005 Prius is listed in the car companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recall of floor mats from pedal entrapment.

The vehicle had been serviced by Toyota for the floor mat problem, Marraccini said. The driver, a 56-yearold housekeeper, was going forward in the car on Tuesday, down a curving driveway several hundred feet long with a putting green next to it, when the accident happened.

Spike in complaints may not be all it seems NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Reports of sudden acceleration in the Toyota Prius have spiked across the country. But that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an epidemic of bad gas pedals in the popular hybrid. Experts on consumer psychology say the relentless negative media attention Toyota has received since the fall makes it much more likely that drivers will mistake anything unexpected â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or even a misplaced foot â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for actual danger. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When people expect problems, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re more likely to find them,â&#x20AC;?

said Lars Perner, a professor of clinical marketing at Marshall School of Business at University of Southern California. In just the first 10 weeks of this year, 272 complaints have been filed nationwide for speed control problems with the Prius, according to an Associated Press analysis of unverified complaints received by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. By comparison, only 74 complaints were filed in all of last year, and just eight the year before that. For problems with the brakes,

rather than the gas, the figures are even more stark: 1,816 filed so far this year versus just 90 in all of 2009 and fewer than 20 in every other year of the last decade. Toyota recalled 440,000 Priuses on Feb. 8 because its antilock brakes seemed to fail momentarily on bumpy roads. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doubtful the Priuses of the past two years suddenly became more dangerous than those made in years past. After all, Toyotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own recall for Prius floor mats that can trap gas pedals covers model years 2004 to 2009.

low-performing schools will have to reapply for their jobs, and the district will sell its downtown central office. It also will cut about 700 of its 3,000 jobs â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including 285 teachers. Superintendent John Covington says district schools are only half-full as enrollment has plummeted. Fewer students means less state funding.

Census campaign targets tech-savvy Hispanic youth LOS ANGELES (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Groups pushing for robust Hispanic participation in the 2010 census announced a new campaign today that aims to reach the hard-to-count demographic through its smart-phone-toting youngsters. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;Be Counted, Representâ&#x20AC;? campaign offers music downloads and a chance at concert tickets to cell phone users who share their e-mail addresses and phone numbers with organizers and forward information about the

census to their friends. Principal organizers Voto Latino and the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund stress in their messages that undercounted areas risk losing funding for transit, infrastructure and other needs, as well as political representation. They hope those messages promoting participation in the count will zip throughout the social networks of youngsters who can persuade their parents to fill out and return their census.

STAN SPANGLE SR.: Secretary Shinseki wants to attack homelessness among vets. TOMORROW

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


Immigrants should adapt to American life In our country, immigrants not Americans must adapt. Take it or leave it. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on 9/11, we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Americans. This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom. We speak mainly English, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society, then learn the language! Most Americans believe in God. This is not some Christian, right-wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture. We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us. This is our country, our land and our lifestyle, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining and griping about our flag, our pledge, our Christian beliefs or our way of life, I highly encourage you

All people (legal, illegal, criminals, tourists, etc.) will be paying the consumption tax adding to our tax base. Used cars or used homes – no tax.

Davidson board saves historic bridge


he Davidson County Board of Commissioners wisely decided Tuesday to invest in the past, a move that may well pay dividends in the future. Commissioners voted 5-2 for the county to assume ownership and maintenance of the Wil-Cox Bridge when the state no longer allows vehicular traffic on it. The bridge, built in 1922, spans the Yadkin River, connecting Rowan and Davidson counties, and would have been demolished by the state when the new Interstate 85 bridge is built over the Yadkin. Action to save the bridge, and the $2.5 million the state will give Davidson County, will allow the county to repair and maintain the structure and construct foot and bicycle paths connecting several historical points of interest there. In the area are the Trading Ford, where the 17th century Trading Path crossed the Yadkin and grounds that were historically significant in the Revolutionary War and the American Civil War. The bridge and nearby sites have the potential to be part of a Davidson County heritage trail that would draw visitors to the county and entice travelers on the interstate to stop and spend more time and money in the county. Even if commissioners had allowed the Wil-Cox bridge to have been demolished soon, creation of a historical trail in the area still would have been purposeful. But the board made the correct decision, and now, there’s plenty of potential for that small piece of southern Davidson County.

Here are a few important questions for the U.S. Census Bureau T

here are not many things that only have to be done once every 10 years, but the U.S. census is one such endeavor. Required by the Constitution to take place every 10 years, it counts every resident of the United States. There are two big things that the U.S. census does for us. First, data collected helps determine the number of seats each state has in the U.S. House of Representatives. Second, the data also helps communities receive more than $400 billion in federal funds each year for things like hospitals, job training centers, schools, senior centers, bridges, tunnels, and other public works projects and emergency services. A bit of census trivia: Do you know when the first census was taken? The year was 1790, and the entire population of the United States that year was 3,929,000. Los Angeles alone today has a population of over 4 million, to put that first census in perspective. So I am excited to be counted along with all of you as a resident of the United States in the year 2010, but I do have a few questions for the U.S. Census Bureau on the eve of their big mailing. My first question is this: Why did you mail me a letter this week to say that, in one week, I would

consultants, can opt out of the whole elaborate third-party payment system and its problems. What the rising costs of medical liability insurance has already done for some, other hassles that bureaucracies and politicians create can have the same effect for others. There is another group that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to put up with these hassles. These are young people who have reached the stage in their lives when they are choosing which profession to enter, and weighing the pluses and minuses before making their decisions. Some of these young people might prefer becoming a doctor, other things being equal. But the heady schemes of government-controlled medicine, and the ever more bloated bureaucracies that these heady schemes will require, can make it very unlikely that other things will be equal in the medical profession. Paying doctors less and hassling them more may be some peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s idea of â&#x20AC;&#x153;lowering the cost of medical care,â&#x20AC;? but it is instead refusing to pay the costs â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and taking the consequences.

we waste a sheet or two of paper at school about the waste of a tree. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d say that the U.S. Census Bureau wasted a forestful of trees with this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unnecessary letter. Maybe there is a LESSONS legitimate reason for it LEARNED that I just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see. Then I went to the Paula Internet Web site for Williams the U.S. Census Bureau â&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  to learn that they have an elaborate Web site with much information and links in multiple languages, but it says that we cannot fill out our census forms online this time. However, the bureau is â&#x20AC;&#x153;experimentingâ&#x20AC;? with Internet response in the future. Do you mean that there is not one person who could have figured out how to do an online form on which people could respond to the 10 questions asked by the census? In this day and age, I find that hard to believe. Oh, well â&#x20AC;&#x201C; maybe in 10 years! Finally, the Census Bureau Web site says that participation in the census is not just important â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it is mandatory. However, if you do not mail your form back by April 1, the U.S. Census Bureau is going to employ an army of census takers to visit those who do not mail in their forms and ask them to respond to the 10 questions at that visit. Why not send a second form and a $50 fine for not submitting the form by the deadline? That would motivate most folks to get it in on time. I know that taking a count of every resident of this great United States is a mammoth task, and perhaps in 10 years, there will be a better method with online forms or, at least, less paper used. Until then, look for that form next week (as you have already been informed to do in your official letter), fill it out, and send it in promptly â&#x20AC;&#x201C; before April 1. Seriously! Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s save the Census Bureau some money, at least in High Point, by making census takers unnecessary!

Conan’s Twitter followee: ‘It’s nuts’


ity – Conan O’Brien. He decided last week to pick Killen as the only person he would follow on Twitter, turning the 19-yearold’s life upside down. The deposed “Tonight Show” has taken to Twitter to reach the masses during his exile. “I’ve decided to follow someone at random,” O’Brien’s posting read at

Reese Witherspoon speaks at the International Women of Courage awards in Washington, Wednesday.

Fri.: 8 & 10 pm Sat: 7, 9 & 11 pm


CONWAY TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) – Last week, Sarah Killen had three Twitter followers. This week, she has 20,000 – as well as a new iMac computer and offers to help pay for a dress and drinks for her wedding. The unsuspecting rural Michigan woman has one out-of-work late-night talk show host to thank for her newfound online popular-

national Women of Courage awards, Witherspoon jokingly complained that Woods, the bubbly blonde from Los Angeles who discovers her inner strength at Harvard Law School and then takes on Washington politics, no longer held that title. Woods, she said, “happened to be the biggest fashionista who ever came to Washington until Michelle Obama. Thanks a lot.”

THOMASVILLE – A day after winning first place in the ninth annual Hasty Elementary School Science Fair, Erica Saintsing continued basking in the fact that she won the fair’s top prize Tuesday. “It was actually pretty cool,” said Saintsing, a fifth-grade student. “It felt good because a lot of people would come up to me and say, ‘Good job on your project’ and it made me feel really good.” Jane Withers, principal of Hasty Elementary, called the Science Fair “quite successful.” She said the projects also were high-quality, age-appropriate and interesting topics. Twenty-two students participated in the Science Fair, which was open to second through fifth grades.


Fifth grade: Erica Saintsing, first place; Sheyenne Hunt, second place; Haley Pesqueira, third place. Fourth grade: Brian Norton and Maeghan Reynolds, first place; Alyssa McNeil and Katie Wooten, second place; Stephanie Salas, third place. Third grade: Christina Gross, first place; Michael Foster, second place; Kimberly Metz, third place. Second grade: Brayden Curry, first place; Morgan Ayscue, second place; Riley George, third place. Organized by the school’s PTO, the Science Fair’s participants were judged based on creativity, scientific thought and organization, skill, workmanship and neatness. Larry Talley, a former principal of Hasty Elementary, and Phyllis Pugh, a longtime teacher at the school, were among the judges. The PTO awarded cash prizes to the first-, second- and third-place winners from each grade level. Students also received a ribbon for their participa-

tion. Saintsing took home top honors for her project that displayed if music does have an impact on how dogs act. She did her project by using music on four dogs, including a stray that is now her pet. “I learned that dogs really do act differently to music because one of the dogs I did doesn’t really like fast music that’s loud because he sort of hid the whole time,” she said.

Political newcomer seeks seat held by Coble BY PAUL B. JOHNSON ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

GUILFORD COUNTY – Small business owner Jon Manchin of Stokesdale hopes that his youthful enthusiasm and positions on issues can help him break through the crowded Republican field challenging Rep. Howard Coble in the Sixth Congressional District. Manchin, 25, is making his first bid for public office, one of five Piedmont Republicans challenging Coble in the May 4 primary. Coble has held the seat since he was elected to it in 1984. “I don’t see the passion for this district now. And I know I have great passion for the people in the district, and I think the interests are the plight of common, everyday Americans,” said Manchin, a native of New Jersey who moved to Guilford County five years ago. The main issue that prompted Manchin to file last month is the financial industry federal bailout, the massive bill passed by Congress late in 2008. “I really respect Howard



Rep. Howard Coble, R-6th, faces five Republican challengers in the May 4 primary – Guilford County Commissioner Billy Yow, furniture showroom manager Cathy Brewer Hinson of High Point, Dr. James Taylor of Pinehurst, businessman Jon Manchin of Stokesdale and Jeff Phillips of Greensboro. The Republican nominee will take on Democratic challenger Sam Turner of Salisbury in the Nov. 2 general election. Coble, and I like him very much. But he voted for the second bailout package. I firmly believe Manchin that package was poorly crafted and was crafted not for the true betterment of the people. It didn’t address the fundamental underlying problem, which is distressed mortgages,” Manchin said. Manchin said another reason he’s running involves concerns about the downward direction of job creation in the Piedmont. “This district has been pretty hard hit in the last 20 years as we’ve transitioned from traditional manufacturing to a


service economy,” he said. Trade pacts, such as allowing the People’s Republic of China to join the World Trade Organization and the passage of the North American Free Trade Agreement, have accelerated the loss of good-paying jobs overseas, Manchin said. “What we need is a fair trade policy, and we have to be careful when we hear free trade,” he said. Manchin acknowledges that he faces a challenge raising his profile in a sixcounty district. He plans to take a grassroots approach, trying to meet in person with as many voters as possible in public settings. | 888-3528

‘Lost Boys’ actor Corey Haim dies at 38 LOS ANGELES (AP) – Corey Haim, a 1980s teen heartthrob whose career was blighted by drug abuse, has died. He was 38. Haim died early Wednesday at Providence St. Joseph Medical Center in Burbank, Los Angeles County coroner’s Lt. Cheryl MacWillie said. “As he got out of bed, he felt a little weak and went down to the floor on his knees,” Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter said. His mother called paramedics. An autopsy will determine cause of death. There was no evidence

of foul play, police Sgt. Michael Kammert said. H a i m , who gained Haim attention for roles in “Lucas” and “The Lost Boys,” had flulike symptoms before he died and was getting over-thecounter and prescription medications, police Sgt. William Mann said. “He could have succumbed to whatever (illness) he had or it could have been drugs,” Mann said. “He has had a drug problem in the past.” Haim was taken by am-

bulance to the hospital from an apartment in Los Angeles near Burbank. His friend, Corey Feldman, said he wept when he heard the news. “This is a tragic loss of a wonderful, beautiful, tormented soul, who will always be my brother, family and best friend,” he said in a statement. “We must all take this as a lesson in how we treat the people we share this world with while they are still here to make a difference. “I hope the art Corey has left behind will be remembered as the passion of that for which he truly lived,” Feldman said.

Haim acknowledged his struggle with drug abuse to a British tabloid in 2004. “I was working on ’Lost Boys’ when I smoked my first joint,” he told The Sun. “I did cocaine for about a year and a half, then it led to crack.” Haim said he went into rehabilitation and was put on prescription drugs. He took stimulants and sedatives. “I started on the downers, which were a hell of a lot better than the uppers because I was a nervous wreck,” he said. In 2007, he told ABC’s “Nightline” that drugs hurt his career. Family-owned with a tradition of trust, integrity and helpful service ... Since 1948

Randleman Regional Reservoir’s water quality passes test MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

RANDLEMAN – Scientific tests consistently show the water in Randleman Regional Reservoir equal in quality to Greensboro’s other water-supply lakes, the Piedmont Triad Regional Water Authority learned Tuesday. Monthly sampling of the new reservoir yielded results virtually identical to similar tests in lakes Brandt, Higgins and Townsend, north of Greensboro, veteran board member Tom Phillips said at the agency’s

monthly meeting. “That’s exactly what all of our earlier studies said would happen,” Phillips said. “The people who were objecting (to the studies) just didn’t want this lake built.” He learned about the similar test results in gathering data for a speech from Greensboro’s water resources department, he said. The city’s existing water-supply lakes have good reputations for quality among urban water systems. The regional authority met Tuesday in a

Census: NC could receive $15,000 per person MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SEREVICE

I count. That’s the message the U.S. Census Bureau wants every citizen in the nation to internalize when it comes to this year’s census. “Results from the 2010 Census will be used to help each community get its fair share of government funds for highways, schools, health facilities and many other programs you and your neighbors need,” said Robert M. Groves, director of the U.S. Census Bureau. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the first census reported the U.S. population at 3.9

million. The 2000 Census reported a U.S. population of more than 280 million people, an increase of 13.1 percent from the 1990 Census. As of March 9, 2010, the U.S. population is at 308,833,195 accounting for a portion of the world’s more than 6.8 billion people. The last Census showed North Carolina having a population of more than 8 million with estimates for 2009 of more than 9.3 million people calling North Carolina home. It is estimated that North Carolina could receive approximately $15,000 per person in federal funding over the next 10 years.

Authority director John Kime and chief project engineer Joe McGougan later led board members on a tour of the plant, almost finished structurally but lacking much of its high-tech equipment. Officials expect it to begin distributing drinking water this summer. In other action, the board unanimously named the plant in honor of Kime.

Girl’s arrival turns drinks for two into party of three


ear Abby: Last week I suggested to a co-worker, “Zack,” that I treat him to a beer after work. Before our pints arrived, he disappeared to a corner of the pub to text on his phone, and 10 minutes later his girlfriend showed up. Her being there obligated me to buy her a drink, and it derailed the work-related discussion I had initially had in mind. The following Monday, I mentioned to Zack that he should have asked me first if it was OK to bring someone else. He was none too pleased to hear that I thought his behavior was rude. How far off base was I? I’ll bow to your opinion. – Wondering in Westmount, Canada Dear Wondering: Did Zack know when you invited him for a beer that you wanted to discuss business? If not, then you’re being too hard on him. But if he did know, then asking his girlfriend to join you was presumptuous – and he should have offered to pay for her drink in any case. Dear Abby: My 12-year-old daughter, “Jenna,” is in the closet – literally. About a week ago, she moved into her closet. She put her dresser in there, threw some blankets on the floor and that’s where she hangs out now. When asked why she doesn’t hang out in her room, she says, “I just like it in the closet.” Some of her girlfriends claim to be bisexual or gay. Is she telling me that she’s “in the closet” or is she messing with my mind? Some of her friends are into cutting, and Jenna seems to be curious about it. I don’t know what to make of any of this. Any advice? – Concerned in Houston Dear Concerned: How close are you and your daughter? Are you the kind of mother she feels safe talking to about anything that might be troubling her? Happy, outgoing girls don’t usually take refuge in dark, confined spaces. She may be overwhelmed or

depressed, or something may be going on in Jenna’s life she needs help with but is afraid to tell you. Stay closer to your daughter for a while. If her change in behavior persists, keep ADVICE probing until you find out what’s going on. Dear Cutting can be an atAbby tempt to mask emotion■■■ al pain, and if she starts, a licensed psychotherapist should be consulted. Dear Abby: I have an 11-year-old son who has started having issues with lying – nothing important, just little things like did he do his chores or brush his teeth. I also have an alcoholic husband who says and does things he doesn’t remember later. When I get conflicting stories from the two of them, I don’t know whom to believe. Don’t suggest I leave my husband. It’s not financially feasible right now, though it is something I am looking into. – Whom Do I Believe in California Dear Whom: I am not suggesting that you leave your husband, unless he poses a danger to his son during one of his blackouts. However, if I had to choose between a husband who says and does things he doesn’t remember later, and an 11-year-old boy who lies occasionally about having brushed his teeth or done his chores, I’d be inclined to believe the more sober of the two, your son. And I’d make darn sure my son understood that, while I might be disappointed he hadn’t done what he was supposed to do, he’d be punished if I caught him lying to me about it.

Salt craving often learned


ear Dr. Donohue: I am a 43-yearold female. Ever since I was 5 years old, I have eaten a lot of salt. I never had a sweet tooth. I had my pituitary gland checked. I thought I might have an iodine deficiency. The gland was OK. I am an avid exerciser, lifting weights five times a week and running six miles, five times a week. Do you have information on iodine deficiency or people who need more salt? – P.A.


Salt craving is not a rarity. Most salt cravers either are born with an innate craving for it or become devotees of salt because the American diet is so full of it. Medical conditions for which salt craving is a sign include adrenal gland malfunction, a severely restricted salt diet and sometimes a result of diuretic (water pill) use. The level of physical activity you perform makes it unlikely that you suffer from any medical condition. You can learn to make do with less salt by slowly decreasing the amount you eat. In a month or two, you’ll wonder how you ever hungered for salty foods. We’re supposed to limit our salt intake to a teaspoon a day – 2,300 mg of sodium. We get most of our salt from commercially prepared foods, not from using the salt shaker. Substituting pepper, lemon juice, vinegar and herbs curbs a salt desire. The Yanomamo people of the Amazon are in good health and eat















only 200 mg of sodium a day. The body uses iodine mostly in the production HEALTH of thyroid hormone. A Dr. Paul deficiency Donohue in iodine ■■■ can lead to goiter (thyroid enlargement), hypothyroidism and many grave problems for a developing fetus. In the early part of the 20th century, iodine deficiency was a problem in areas of Canada and the United States. Adding iodine to salt helped solve iodine deficiency. Have you made salt craving an indication of iodine deficiency? It isn’t. Dear Dr. Donohue: I am 43 and a female. During a routine physical exam two years ago, it was discovered that I have microscopic blood in my urine. I had two CT scans done and a test where they filled my bladder with water and looked inside. Everything came out fine, except for a couple of small cysts in my kidney. After two years I still have the condition, but it hasn’t worsened. How serious is this? Could the kidney cysts cause the blood? Could something in my diet be the cause? What can I do to get rid of it? Will it ever go away on its own? – C. Urine should have only a few red blood cells in it when examined with a

microscope. When it has more, the most important issue is eliminating the possibility of cancer. Cancer isn’t the most common cause of microscopic urinary blood, but it is the most deadly cause. You have had two scans of your urinary tract. Your bladder has been inspected with a scope. You do not have cancer. Other causes include kidney stones, kidney inflammation (glomerulonephritis), urinary tract infections, TB, exercise and mild trauma. Your doctor has considered all those things and hasn’t found them. In only about 30 percent of patients with microscopic urine blood is a cause found. When a cause cannot be found, the course of action is to follow these people for a length of time to make sure no illness is brewing. Simple cysts of the kidney usually don’t cause blood in the urine. A diet change won’t help you. The condition can resolve on its own. You can do nothing to rid yourself of this. It most likely is not serious. Dear Dr. Donohue: When someone refers to “hair of the dog,” what do they mean? – P.D. At one time, the belief was that hair from a dog that bit you prevented infection when it was put on the dog bite. Now it means drinking alcohol to cure a hangover the morning after a night of excess drinking. It didn’t work then, and it doesn’t work now.

Thursday, March 11, 2010 CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Thora Birch, 28; Terrence Howard, 41; Bobby McFerrin, 60; Sam Donaldson, 76 HAPPY BIRTHDAY: You will need to make changes that appear to be impossible at first but, your insight will lead you in a positive direction. Someone who fears change may try to hold you back. Follow your own heart and head so you don’t miss out on something that you find appealing. Listen to how the people around you size up your situation and make the necessary adjustments. Your numbers are 3, 5, 17, 20, 27, 30, 41 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Concentrate on what you can do for others and good things will happen in return. The joy you spread and the ideas you share will lead to an interesting relationship. A self-improvement project will pay off. Don’t travel unless it’s necessary. ★★★★ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Avoid arguing with people you have to deal with regularly or you will be faced with financial and emotional restrictions. Remain open to suggestions and don’t allow your stubbornness to hamper your ability to advance. ★★ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You may think you are invincible but, if you don’t listen to the advice being offered, you may end up redoing, replacing or, even worse, losing a good friend. You may be tempted to lend or borrow money or possessions but problems or complications will set in. ★★★★★ CANCER (June 21-July 22): An old idea or plan will help you out of a tight squeeze. A change at work will lead to better opportunities and possible advancement. Don’t limit what you can do or how far you can go because you fear the unknown. ★★★ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Shake things up a bit. Sign up for a course and you will discover a new way to make a little extra cash. Be careful not to let someone you are in a relationship with stifle your plans or restrict what you can and cannot do. ★★★ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Listen carefully to what’s being said. A partnership you have may not deliver what was promised. Get busy doing your share of the work but don’t offer to take on what someone else is supposed to do. ★★★ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Lean toward creative endeavors that allow you to use your talent and skills. A relationship will be enhanced if you share your ideas. Don’t fight change when it’s essential for getting ahead. ★★★★★ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Take part in activities or events that will help you personally and professionally. Don’t let emotional matters that arise with family, relatives or a neighbor slow you down. Someone is withholding the truth. ★★ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): The emphasis you put on having fun may be held against you if you don’t pull your weight or live up to your promises. Problems with authority figures, agencies or institutions will cost you financially. ★★★★ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): People from your past can influence the decisions you make now. Honesty regarding the way you feel about someone is a must. Don’t confuse someone’s generous nature or kindness for love. ★★★ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): It’s what you do for others that will count. Your generosity will bring all sorts of rewards. Sincerity and an honest display of emotion will capture someone’s interest. A relationship based on finances will limit what you can do. ★★★ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Moderation will be your friend. As soon as you make grandiose plans, you will fall short of your goals. Uncertainties are apparent in a personal relationship. Before you make a commitment, know what you are getting into. ★★★





A muffler store near my club has this sign: “No appointment necessary. We can hear you coming.” A good defender must see what’s coming. At today’s slam, South took the king of hearts, drew trumps and led a club to dummy’s eight – the percentage play, winning if West had the ten plus either the king or queen. East took the ten and shifted to a diamond. South doubted that East would have led from the king of diamonds. Seeing one chance, South put up his ace and finessed with the jack of hearts. He pitched a club on the ace, took the ace of clubs and ruffed a club. When clubs broke 3-3, South threw his diamond loser on the good club. WON’T WORK East can see that South’s plan in clubs won’t work; but if South gets discouraged with the clubs and finesses in hearts, he’ll strike oil. So East should win the first club with the king and lead a diamond. South will win and persevere by leading a second club to dummy’s nine, and East’s deception will result in down two.

DAILY QUESTION You hold: S Q 10 9 7 H A K J D Q 7 C A J 9 8. You open 1NT, and your partner bids three spades. The opponents pass. What do you say? ANSWER: Partner promises 10 or more points with a five-card or longer suit. You would usually raise to four spades with three-card or better support or return to 3NT otherwise, but here your hand is a super-maximum. Bid four clubs, an “advance cue bid” to show good spade support, the ace of clubs and slam interest. 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.

IGH POINT – What better place to stage a musical Bible story than at a magnificent church sanctuary with ceilings that seem to reach for the sky, gorgeous stained glass windows and acoustics designed to showcase vocal and instrumental music? A partnership between High Point Community Theatre and Wesley Memorial United Methodist Church to stage “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,” opening tonight, was too perfect to pass up, said Community Theatre Director Jennifer Blevins and Michael Dougherty, music director for both the play and Wesley Memorial. “Because this is a biblical story, it’s the same sort of thing I do every Sunday: try to tell stories in a different way,” Dougherty said. “Good liturgy is good theater.” Blevins originally was looking for innovative ways to save money in the difficult financial climate, and the more she considered the partnership with Wesley Memorial, the more perfect the pairing seemed. Community Theatre usually rents the High Point Theatre, and Wesley Memorial is donating its space. Also, scheduling conflicts existed at the theater. “It was the perfect time to experiment, and ‘Joseph’ is the perfect vehicle for Wesley Memorial, since it’s based on a Bible story,” Blevins said. “The wonderful thing about Wesley Memorial is that the church is so magnificent, it can become the scenery.” The production and church also share a sound engineer and some members of the children’s chorus. In another break from tradition, “Joseph” will be performed during two weekends, rather than the usual one. Much as the setting fits the play, the real star of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” is the music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyr-


Travis Vernon and Mary Lea Williams as Joseph and The Narrator. ics by Tim Rice. The story from Genesis is about Joseph, one of 11 brothers, his father’s favorite and the bearer of an amazing coat. Georganne Schultz created a coat for the production that is especially spectacular, Blevins said. The story is conveyed entirely through song, which includes different styles of music, mostly ’70s and ’80s pop. The pharaoh is portrayed as Elvis Presley in the ’60s. The leads are Mary Lea Williams as the narrator and Travis Vernon as Joseph. Williams, who has a bachelor’s degree in opera performance, sought the role for a third time because it is one of her favorites. She plays the narrator costumed and involved in the stage action. “The narrator is a chame-

leon,” she said. “I could play the narrator straight, but I tend to go with whatever is going on on stage, like maybe joining in with what the brothers are doing.” Vernon is a nine-year veteran of High Point Community Theatre performances and a member of the choir at Wesley Memorial. The role of Joseph is a fun one, he said, because the character moves from a naive and clueless boy with dreams, to a young man in slavery, then to a favorite of the pharaoh and finally to maturity and a state of redemption. “The coat becomes a character. It’s the personification of my father Jacob loving me the most and being the special son and a metaphor for my brothers’ jealousy,” he said. / 888-3601

There’s always been room at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum for the exciting, most popular relics, like Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” jacket and John Lennon’s Sgt. Pepper uniform. But most of the not-so-flashy mementos were tucked away in storage. Visitors will get a chance to see those hidden artifacts beginning later this year, when the museum opens its library and archives in a recently completed high-tech building it shares with Cuyahoga Community College’s creative arts programs. The museum has begun moving photos, recordings, albums and covers, oral histories, scrap books and other packed materials from its iconic glass pyramid overlooking Lake Erie to the new, low-key building two miles away. The items also include such gems as Jim Morrison’s first poem, video from the 1981-82 Rolling Stones tour and personal letters from the Grateful Dead, Whitney Houston, Patti Smith and others. Posters of Alan Freed, the DJ credited with coining the phrase rock ’n’ roll, and aging LP records also will find a home in the $12 million building. The records will be digitalized and available for listening. The library will be the most comprehensive repository of rock history, with materials donated by hall of fame inductees and wannabes who see it as a way to preserve their stories, said Deborah Campana, librarian of the Oberlin Conservatory of Music.

OS ANGELES â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg swapped other peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s war stories to groundbreaking, heartbreaking effect in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Saving Private Ryanâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Band of Brothers.â&#x20AC;? The unsparing and visceral depiction of battle in their World War II collaborations is revisited by â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Pacific,â&#x20AC;? a 10-part, $195 million miniseries debuting at 9 p.m. Sunday on HBO. Also intact is their celebration of the American veteran. But â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Pacificâ&#x20AC;? carves its own path across a lesser-known theater of war with parallels to current conflicts. It also breaks the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Band of Brothersâ&#x20AC;? mold by following its battered Marines home with a coda reminiscent of the classic World War II film, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Best Years of Our Lives.â&#x20AC;? The challenge â&#x20AC;&#x153;was to take human beings and put them through hell and wonder how in the world they would approach the world when they came back,â&#x20AC;? Hanks said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Part 10 is the first time we went for it,â&#x20AC;? he said. The new HBO miniseries was born of its predecessor, 2001â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s acclaimed, Emmy-winning â&#x20AC;&#x153;Band of Brothers,â&#x20AC;? which dramatized the true story of a company of paratroopers fighting in Europe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We only told a partial story in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Band,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? Spielberg said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My own relatives were saying to me, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We all fought in the Pacific. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a different story. It was jungle warfare.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? The filmmakerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father, Arnold, battled the Japanese in Burma and an uncle flew B-29s over Japan. Other Pacific theater veterans wrote to Spielberg, â&#x20AC;&#x153;wanting me to tell their story.â&#x20AC;? The challenge for executive producers Hanks, Spielberg and Gary Goetzman was that the U.S.-Japanese conflict sprawled across a series of remote islands and lacked the European landmarks that gave â&#x20AC;&#x153;Band of Brothersâ&#x20AC;? an instant familiarity. The men of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Pacificâ&#x20AC;? fought for dirt on Guadalcanal, New Britain, Pavuvu, Peleliu and Iwo Jima. The miniseries opens shortly after the 1941 Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in Hawaii, follows the path of three young Marines and ends on the home front in 1946

after Japanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s surrender. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You get to see who these men were before they come into the war, where they came from, why they wanted to get into it. ... You get to see how they came out of it, if they did at all,â&#x20AC;? said cast member Joe Mazzello. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You get the full scope of what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like to be an American Marine in that time.â&#x20AC;?

Young Villains focused on state 1A title E

rin Fitzgerald remembers being a sophomore on the Bishop McGuinness girls basketball team. Right after her freshman year, in fact. Now the elder stateswoman of the Villains, the grizzled senior cannot recall such hilarity, chaos and madcap fun in those early years. “I think I was a little bit more under control than them,” Fitzgerald said with a laugh. “Or at least I’d like to think so.” The “them” in this case would be the seven sophomores and one freshman on this year’s varsity basketball roster, a collection of players who would have been enjoying a pretty impressive junior varsity season any other year at Bishop. Instead, they’ll hit the Smith Center floor in Chapel Hill at noon Saturday to play for the school’s fifth straight NCHSAA 1A championship. “When we’re on the court, somehow – I don’t know how – everybody manages to get focused,” Fitzgerald said. “We’ve had bonding experiences, and (the young players) are absolutely hysterical, so unfocused. But then on the court they get focused. It’s remarkable.” Indeed. No one expected Bishop to return to this year’s title game. Seven of last year’s top-10 players were lost to graduation, and the eighth – all-star Whitney Knight – transferred to Reynolds for the new school year. Coach Brian Robinson opened practice with two seniors in Fitzgerald and reserve guard Gabby Mortis, plus standout junior Megan Buckland. And when Buckland and Fitzgerald missed those first few days with injuries, the Villains really did look like a JV team. “It’s been a journey, trying to find ourselves, trying to find our talents, trying to include ourselves in the team and help out,” said sophomore forward Lauren Cushing. “We went pretty headstrong at first. We’ve always played our game and tried really hard. We’ve just gotten more comfortable playing together as a team.” Credit the Villains’ system for the fact the young players weren’t awestruck at their early chance to shine on varsity. Credit Fitzgerald and Buckland for lessons learned from past Villain leaders. “Both of us definitely had to step up as big leaders this year, and I think it helped

both of us,” Buckland said. And credit Robinson, whose undefeated seasons with the Villains can’t compare SPORTS to this year’s coaching job. Steve Not after a Hanf mid-January ■■■ swoon left his team 7-4 in the Northwest Conference and “destined for .500,” as he put it. “We had a long talk and something clicked,” Robinson said of the change since his team’s 47-46 loss to North Surry. “We’ve been riding pretty high since.” With plenty of coaxing along the way. “He’s had to yell a lot more,” Cushing said with a smile. “The thing I love about Coach R, he’s so different from other coaches. He doesn’t usually yell at you. You get the disappointed head nod, and that hurts.” Winning does have a way of making everything feel better, though. The Villains lost by 13 to Mount Airy in the league tournament to enter the playoffs at 17-7, a decided underdog. Down went Bessemer City, 79-21, in the first round. Chatham Central was dispatched 56-38 in the second. Highland Tech fell 56-25 in a sectional championship mismatch. The regional was supposed to be Bishop’s shot at revenge against the Mount Airy squad that had beaten it three times this year. The Villains eased past Avery 57-42 in the semifinals – moments after Mitchell stunned Mount Airy at the buzzer in the other semifinal. There was no let-up in the Villains against that surprise foe, with Saturday’s 68-48 romp setting up this week’s showdown against unbeaten Williamston. “It’s a great opportunity to carry on what the seniors the previous years have left behind to us,” Buckland said. “Everyone’s just excited and we’re thrilled considering we weren’t really expected to get here this year.” Not with all those youngsters. Sammi Goldsmith contributed last year, while Marie Petrangeli and Sarah Coon got called up for the 2009 playoff run. Along with the rest – Cushing, Kelly Elder, Erin Liebal, Jeanine Mason and Katie Burske – they’ve found their focus far earlier than anyone expected. | 888-3526

GREENSBORO – The swelling extending from the middle of the forehead of Wake Forest senior wing player L.D. Williams was noticeable Wednesday. The bulge was the result of Williams’ meeting with a teammate’s elbow as he went up to block a shot during a regular practice for the Demon Deacons at Greensboro College in the morning before a shootaround at the Greensboro Coliseum to get reacquainted with the place before today’s start of the ACC Tournament. “I thought I had a hard head until today,” Williams said. Deacon coach Dino Gaudio held Williams out of the shootaround as a precaution, but fully expects Williams to play as fifth-seeded Wake (19-9) takes on 12th-seeded Miami (1812) around 2:30 p.m. “We just didn’t want him to be bounced around, even in the shooting drills,” Gaudio said. While Williams is slated to go, that’s not the case for Hurricanes’ leading scorer Dwyane Collins, who coach Frank Haith said is sidelined by bone stress. “It’s hard for me to believe that a senior leader for Miami is not going to play tomorrow,” Williams said. “If he doesn’t play, we’ve still got to come with our “A” game and not take an possessions off. We’ve got to play like he is in the lineup.”

Gaudio said the Deacons can’t assume the absence of Collins will make their day any easier as he thought back to the game in which Boston College reserve forward Tyler Roach scored 31 against Wake when the Eagles’ leading scorer Joe Trapani was out of the lineup because of illness. “Sometimes when a young man is out for the short term, other guys pick it up a little more,” Gaudio said. Wake comes into the tournament with a bit of renewed confidence after snapping a four-game losing streak with a victory over Clemson on Sunday night. Miami has lost three in a row and 11 of its last 14. “The thing we emphasized the last game is guarding without fouling,” Gaudio said. “During that losing streak we had, we were putting guys on the foul line a little too much. ... And if we take care of the ball and get some field goals attempted, I think we will be OK.” The teams split during the regular season. Wake lost at Miami 67-66 in January when it missed a last-second shot and then throttled the Hurricanes 62-53 at the Joel Coliseum. Senior guard James Dews, with an average of 11.7 points per game, becomes Miami’s leading scorer with Collins out. Freshman guard Durand Scott is next at 9.8 points. “We have to play hard and worry about Wake Forest and hopefully everything will turn out well,” Gaudio said. | 888-3519




ifteen years ago, Wake Forest guard Randolph Childress kept his word and delivered one of the greatest individual performances in ACC Tournament history. Childress led his Demon Deacons into Greensboro as the top seed. Wake seemed poised to win its first league tournament crown since 1962. But several talented teams, including North Carolina, Maryland and Virginia, stood in Wake’s way. On the day before the 1995 event started, Childress spoke to a few reporters gathered in the Greensboro Coliseum.

“I feel really good about the way I’m playing,” Childress said in his always confident, but never cocky, way. “I’m gonna go out and set the (ACC Tournament) scoring record. I want to lead us to that tournament championship.” I was fortunate enough to be there when Childress made his prediction. I was even more fortunate to be there as he backed it up. Childress pumped in 37 points as Wake rolled past Duke 87-70 in the quarterfinals, then tallied 30 in a 77-68 semifinal win over Virginia. He topped it all off with 37 points – includ-

ing the game-winning jumper with four seconds to play in overtime – as the Deacons outlasted UNC 82-80 for the crown. Childress finished with 107 points to surpass Tar Heel legend Lenny Rosenbluth’s previous mark of 106 set in 1957. The Deacon sharpshooter made 33 of 61 field goals, 23 of 44 3-pointers and 18 of 20 free throws en route to the record. It remains the best three-game tournament performance I’ve ever seen by an ACC player.

DELHI, N.Y. – Happy to be there? Without a doubt. Tonight, though, Davidson County Community College sets out to prove its third-year men’s basketball program belongs with some of the nation’s most established squads when the National Junior College Athletic Association Division III championship begins. “We understand how hard it is to get to this point and we certainly feel fortunate that we’ve gotten this far,” Storm coach Matt Ridge said Wednesday by phone following his team’s practice. “But we don’t want to be content just to be here. Now that we’ve gotten to the Elite Eight, we’ve got to step out there

with a little bit of a swagger and act like we belong.” The Storm (29-4) tangles with Roxbury Community College of Massachusetts (23-3) in the third of four games today at SUNY-Dehli’s 1,500-seat Maines Arena. The winning team plays Friday night at 8 in one semifinal with a shot at advancing to Saturday night’s championship game. This evening’s loser falls into the consolation bracket. Each team will play three games at the tournament. Key for DCCC in the opener is a fast start, Ridge said. Roxbury plays aggressive defense featuring a zone press similar to the Germantown team Davidson County defeated in Saturday’s district championship. The Tigers appeared in the D-III Elite Eight as recently as 2004 and feature a pair of dominant scorers in forward Jeffery Cannon (26 ppg) and

guard Ravon Dunbar (24). Fellow guard Paris Amado leads the nation in assists. “Any time in life you do something for the first time there’s some uncertainty,” Ridge said. “The first five, 10 minutes we need to play with a confidence about us. The first game, if we’re fortunate enough to win, will give our guys some confidence that we can win this thing.” DCCC enters with a 21-game winning streak powered by star guards Justin Glover (19 ppg) and Roderick Geter (15). Phillip Williams has sparkled running the team, averaging five assists and 13 points per game. Trinity products Eric Potts and Zack Williams also help power the Storm. DCCC is among the odd teams out in the experience factor at this event, with only Mountain View College of Texas also making its first visit. Sullivan

County Community College of New York makes its 10th appearance in the last 20 years and owns championships in 1992, 1995, 1996 and 2007. Bergen Community College of New Jersey finished third in last year’s event. Herkimer County Community College of New York is making its first appearance in the tournament since 1991, when the Generals won the NJCAA Championship, while Joliet Junior College of Illinois has been to Delhi four times and finished as runner-up in 2005 and 2008. Rochester Community and Technical College of Minnesota has been in the tournament five times. “We’ve got an opportunity of a lifetime,” Ridge said. “We’re hoping to be able to survive and advance.” | 888-3526

Caraway Speedway cranks it up Sunday C

araway Speedway promoter Russell Hackett continues to think less might be more when it comes to scheduling races during hard economic times. Hackett’s track cranks up Sunday in fine style with the second 150-lap NASCAR Southern Modified Tour race of the season and 150 laps for Caraway’s featured NASCAR Late Model Stock class. The big weekend includes qualifying on Saturday. The “regular season” runs until the traditional Mid-Atlantic 250 Late Model race in mid-October. In between the start and the finish, the schedule for the second year in a row looks like a hodgepoge, especially for the Late Model class that once ran almost every week throughout the season. That was until last year, when Hackett decided to schedule fewer and longer races with bigger purses. The result was a jump in car count from around a dozen to over 20 for almost every race. Pleased enough with what happened last year and convinced the average fan isn’t interested in coming to the track every week anymore, at least until the economy picks up, Hackett decided to come back with a similar schedule. The Late Models are slated for 15 races that aren’t scheduled on a regular basis. Four are in the first six weeks of the season, which is followed by one race over a six-week stretch from April 17 through May 22. Only one Late Model race is scheduled in June, but four are

in July (including two in a five-day period around the July Fourth holiday), then two in August and one in September. There is one change from last year. Length of most of the Late Model races SPORTS has been dropped from 200 laps to 150 so that the Greer price of admission could Smith be reduced from $20 to ■■■ $15. Tickets will cost $20 for special events, such as three Modified-Late Model doubleheaders. “We want to make it more affordable,” Hackett said. “The engine that drives everything is money. People just don’t come to the track every week like they used to. Some of that is the economy and some of that is they want to do other things. And most of the drivers don’t want to run every week from March to September.” But, as happened last season, the absence of Late Models doesn’t mean Caraway will be idle every week because Hackett will continue to have Friday night races. But in one of the bigger twists of the season, Hackett decided to make the Sportsman division his featured class on Fridays and demoted the struggling Late Model Truck class to support status. NASCAR also agreed to count Sportsman races toward national and regional championships in addition to his Late Model races.

RCR drivers react to Edwards’ probation BY GREER SMITH ENTERPRISE SPORTS WRITER

WELCOME – The drivers at Richard Childress Racing refrained Wednesday from much comment specifically on the three-race probation NASCAR gave Carl Edwards for intentionally wrecking Brad Keselowski other than to say they are glad to know what the penalties for such infractions are going to be under the sanctioning body’s more lenient policy. “This is consistent with what they have normally done,” Jeff Burton said. “At the same time, it should be noted that those things don’t need to be happening at 1.5-mile and 2-mile race tracks. The drivers need to handle it off the track.” Kevin Harvick, the current Cup points leader, said Edwards got into trouble in the wrong era, referring to the recent past when NASCAR levied heavy fines for retaliatory driving. “Now we know where everybody is at with the penalties and how NASCAR is going to handle them,” Harvick said. ”And as long as the consistency is here, everyone is good with it.” After following that with the comment about being penalized in the wrong era, Harvick cut off the line of questioning. He later said he did not believe the ruling would result in more contact. “I don’t think things are going to be regulated much different on the race track other than there won’t be a huge penalty or fine for racing hard,” Harvick said. “That’s what NASCAR is trying to get at. I don’t think it will be much different than it has been.”

Early and late in the season, the Sportsman cars and other Friday night divisions are scheduled on Saturdays when the Late Models are idle, giving the Sportsman class 19 dates. Hackett said having the Sportsman class count toward national points will give Late Model drivers the opportunity to contend for the national championship without much cost because the only differences between the Late Model and Sportsman cars are tires, carburetor and weight. Track officials said former track champ Jason York is intending to race in both divisions in an effort to win the national title. “We’ve been talking with NASCAR for a couple of years about having one of our other divisions count toward national points,” Hackett said. “And this will give our Late Model guys a chance at the national championship if they want to take a shot. NASCAR counts a driver’s best 18 races toward the national championship and even with the nights we have two Late Model races, we have only 18. The guy who wins the national championship usually has a perfect score. So the Sportsman races would give our guys a chance to do that.” Even with some Sportsman-led programs on Saturdays, Hackett will have six weeks with no racing. Two of those – a reluctance to compete with the Saturday night All-Star race at Charlotte and the Saturday night Cup race at Bristol – have been in place for years.

Burton believes drivers will now avoid contact knowing there will be little penalty for retribution. “The only thing that comes out of all that is there is a consequence to your action,” Burton said. “It’s clear to me if I knock someone out of the way that I need to get the hell out of the way in the next corner or they are going to wreck me. I’m OK with that. Drivers need to be smart and Sunday they weren’t smart.” Edwards was 155 laps down when he spun Keselowski and sent Keselowski flying roof first into the frontstretch grandstand wall with two laps to go in regulation at Atlanta. Keselowski escaped injury. Edwards admitted he was paying Keselowski back for an earlier incident in which he wrecked after getting a bump from Keselowski when trying to squeeze into an open spot in front of Keselowski. Edwards has gotten into scrapes with Keselowski over the past 13 months in the Nationwide Series and flew into the grandstand fence at the end of last spring’s Cup race at Talladega after he tried to block Keselowski coming to the finish and Keselowski didn’t lift. Keselowski won the race. “I’ve been racing since I’ve been 16 and that situation has always happened,” said Clint Bowyer, who started his career on Kansas dirt tracks. ”I’ve never seen anyone get hurt, maybe a fight afterwards, but I’ve never seen a situation where it could have hurt somebody. This time, I saw a situation where it could have hurt somebody. There’s a point where you go too far and that was too far. “It’s as simple as that. Ev-

erybody who saw it knows that was too far. It was scary and stupid.” Bowyer declined further comment. Edwards is not the only driver who was ruffled by Keselowski in the Nationwide Series last year. Denny Hamlin crashed Keselowski on purpose last November after a number of run-ins. “Brad’s got to learn that he doesn’t have to prove he is a tough guy,” Burton said. “He’s made the decision that he’s not going to cut anybody any slack and he’s going to race aggressively all the time. He’s going to have to live with the consequences of that. There comes a point when you are willing to lift. If your front bumper is constantly coming in contact with people, that gets old. When a driver gets involved with a lot of people, you are convinced he is willing to do that to you. “Brad needs to understand there’s a consequence to how you race. He needs to mend fences, but still stay in the mindset that I’m here to win. It’s a balancing act. He needs to tip a little to the conservative side. The conversation shifted to Bad because of the situations he’s been in the last 18 months. Carl has to find that balance with Brad. He doesn’t have to find it with me or Mark Martin or most people. Carl can’t let his anger get the best of him. I’m not managing Carl or Brad, but that would be my advice.” | 888-3519

Familiar faces look strong at Caraway

This season, Hackett will not go against Bowman Gray Stadium’s opener at the end of April, the Modified race at Martinsville on June 5, the Southern Modified Tour race at Bowman Gray on Aug. 7 and the prospect of a poor crowd on Labor Day weekend. “We just went down the schedule and took all the bad weekends where we really don’t have a chance of making money,” Hackett said. “And this gives us some time off. I’m in my 70s and my children help me and they are all in their 30s and 40s, so this gives up a break, too.” The biggest cut Hackett made this year was in the number of Southern Modified Tour races to three from the six or seven that had anchored the schedule. Hackett said he wasn’t pressured by NASCAR to make the reduction. NASCAR used the opportunity to schedule races at Atlanta Motor Speedway and Lowe’s Motor Speedway, events that will give the Tour more visibility. In addition to Saturday’s doubleheader, Caraway’s other Modified Tour races are scheduled with Late Model events on July 2 and Aug. 28. “It was my choice to cut back,” Hackett said. “Last year, we lost money on several of the Modified races. I don’t think that’s anybody’s fault. It’s just the economy. “And, there were some people complaining that we had too many races. So, we fixed that.”


ASHEBORO – If those who participated in preseason practice is an indication, most of last year’s Late Model main players at Caraway Speedway will be back for Sunday night’s 150-lap season opener. The list is headed by defending track champion Travis Swaim, followed by former track champs Brad Brinkley, Randy Benson and Jason York. Others who have practiced and are expected to return are Ryan Rhodes, Ryan Wilson, veteran Pete Stewart, Nathan Buttke, Tommy Lemons Jr., Dan Moore, Corey Strickland, former Wallburg resident Robert Tyler, Chris Bowen, former Ledford High student Ryan Robertson and Jimmy Wallace. Track officials said Tony Black in moving up from the Limited Late Model division and Harrison Rhodes is expected to make the leap from Legends Cars to the top division.

MODIFIED MADNESS In the wake of starting off the season pulling a shocker by getting past Tim Brown and winning in his first Southern Modified start, Corey LaJoie faces a big challenge in his quest to make it two-for-two. LaJoie benefitted from last week’s race being the first race on Atlanta Motor Speedway’s quarter-mile, where no other drivers had experience. This week, he’ll try to prevail on a track where some of the drivers

expected are very accomplished. The Tour visits Caraway on Sunday for the second part of a doubleheader. Among the drivers entered include Brian Loftin, who has a Tour-record seven wins that included four in his championship year of 2008. L.W. Miller won there four times on the way to his 2007 championship. Burt Myers should be favored in qualifying. He has set the fastest lap at Caraway a record 10 times but has just one victory. Brown is also a former Caraway winner.

SPARK PLUGS NASCAR announced that NASCAR Southern Modified races at South Boston Speedway and Charlotte Motor Speedway, the combination race with the NASCAR Modified Tour at Bristol Motor Speedway and the Modified Tour race at Martinsville Speedway in June will be among lower division races that will be taped for showing in Speed Channel. The package also includes all events in the NASCAR East and West Series. ... Junior Johnson’s son Robert is scheduled to make his UARA series debut when the series opens Saturday at Hickory Motor Speedway. ... The PASS South late model series is set to open Saturday at Dillon Motor Speedway in South Carolina. PASS said it has added Ace Speedway to its schedule on June 4. ... The second of four preseason practice sessions is slated Saturday at Ace, which is scheduled to open the season on April 2. | 888-3519

BofA ends debit overdraft fees NEW YORK (AP) — Bank of America customers will soon be unable to spend more than they have in the accounts linked to their debit cards. It’s a step that may become a common move ahead of new regulations limiting overdraft fees. Rules set by the Federal Reserve that will ban banks from charging such fees, without first getting permission from the customer, are set to take effect July 1. But Bank of America is going a step further than the regulations require. It will simply no longer allow debit card purchases to go through if there isn’t enough money in the account.



Firms ask for halt to TV blackouts NEW YORK (AP) — Cable, satellite TV and other video providers are seeking government intervention in ongoing disputes over the fees that they are charged by TV networks to carry local channels. They want the government to force the networks to keep TV signals activated during contract talks or disputes. A stand off between Cablevision and ABC led to a blackout last weekend, which meant some viewers missed the beginning of the Academy Awards.

Oil jumps past $83 on inventories NEW YORK (AP) — Following a brief pullback on Tuesday, oil prices jumped Wednesday after a government report showed that crude stockpiles grew less than analysts had predicted, raising hopes that demand for oil and gas is picking up. Benchmark crude for April delivery rose as high as $83.03 a barrel in morning trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange, before moving back to $82.08, up 59 cents.

Terra favoring CF in buyer battle NEW YORK (AP) — Fertilizer company Terra Industries said Wednesday its board favors a bid to be acquired by CF Industries instead of a previous agreement with Norway’s Yara. Terra, based in Sioux City, Iowa, has given Yara five business days to meet or beat CF’s offer. Yara’s $4.1 billion buyout deal was announced last month.


For ATM transactions, customers who try to withdraw more than their balance will have to agree to pay a $35 overdraft fee before they can get the money. “The majority of our customers who overdraw their account do so with everyday debit purchases,” said Susan Faulkner, senior vice president of consumer banking for Charlotte, N.C.based Bank of America. “They’re doing this unknowingly, because they aren’t aware that they are about to overdraft.” Since the bank doesn’t have the ability to notify the customer when they’re at the register and

give them the chance to agree to a fee, it will simply reject such transactions. Consumers have demonstrated a willingness to pay overdrafts for covering the mortgage and the car payment, said Greg McBride, who follows the banking industry for “But not if it’s things like covering a latte and a scone.” The bank’s new policy will kick in on June 19 for new accounts, and in early August for existing accounts. It will replace the bank’s current terms, which allow overdrafts to go through but only charge a fee if the deficit is greater than $10.

Inventories fall, sales increase WASHINGTON (AP) — Businesses trimmed inventories at the wholesale level again in January even though sales rose for a 10th consecutive month. The dip in inventories underscored that businesses remain cautious about restocking their depleted shelves. The Commerce Department said Wednesday that inventories at the wholesale level were reduced 0.2 percent in January following a 1 percent drop in December. Sales were up a solid 1.3 percent, the best showing since a 3.6 percent rise in November. Economists are hoping that the steady gains in sales will soon prompt a sustained rebound in inventory restocking. That would trigger increased factory production and pro-

vide support for the fledgling recovery. Analysts believe the stage has been set for such a rebound given how lean inventories are at present following a massive inventory liquidation that occurred during the recession. Inventories at the wholesale level for 13 straight months and have been down 15 of the past 17 months. The only gains in wholesale inventories occurred in October and November. With the January drop in inventories, the ratio of inventories to sales dipped to a record low of 1.10, meaning it would take 1.10 months to deplete inventories at the wholesale level given the January sales pace. That was the lowest point since the data series began in 1992.

OPEC raises 2010 demand forecast CAIRO (AP) — World oil demand is projected to grow by 900,000 barrels per day in 2010, OPEC said Wednesday, revising up its previous month’s forecast while cautioning that the increase is hinged on a sustained global economic rebound, particularly in the United States. The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, supplier of about 35 percent of the world’s crude, raised its demand forecast to 85.24 million barrels per day, roughly 100,000 barrels per day higher than its

February projections. It also said demand for OPEC crude was estimated at 29 million barrels a day — some 200,000 barrels per day more than its previous month’s forecast — but noted that members were still overproducing. Describing 2009 as “the worst year in the industry in oil demand since the oil crisis in the 1980s,” the 12-member producer bloc said in its March report that global oil demand “has been highly dependent upon the world economy, supported by government-led stimulus plans.”

Stocks rise on economic reports NEW YORK (AP) — Scant buying lifted stocks for a second day Wednesday after the government reported a drop in companies’ inventories. The Dow Jones industrials rose only 3 points as the market remained in a lull that began on Monday. Many investors stayed on the sidelines amid an absence of news that could influence trading. The Commerce Department said that wholesale inventories fell 0.2 percent in January after dropping 1 percent in December. Companies’ sales rose 1.3 percent, the 10th straight gain. The drop in inventories and the rise in sales suggests that companies are working through inventory to meet demand and will have to begin restocking. The report was the latest bit of economic news to help nudge stocks higher. The numbers on the economy haven’t been strong enough to galvanize traders because many improvements are already reflected in stock prices. The Dow rose 2.95, or less than 0.1 percent, to 10,567.33. The S&P 500 index rose 5.16, or 0.5 percent, to 1,145.61. The Nasdaq composite index rose 18.27, or 0.8 percent, to 2,358.95, an 18month high.

BEIJING (AP) – China’s exports rose in February in a new sign of growing global demand that could help persuade officials to let the Chinese currency rise. Exports were up 45.7 percent over a year earlier, the Chinese customs agency reported Wednesday, beating analyst forecasts of 35 to 40 percent growth. Imports surged 44.7 percent, the agency said, reflecting growing demand in China as it emerges from the global crisis. “China’s trade is extending its recovery,” said

Zhu Jianfang, an economist for Citic Securities in Beijing. “Exporters are getting more orders these days.” February’s growth rate was boosted by comparison with last year’s weak trade amid the global downturn and came despite the weeklong Lunar New Year holiday, when many companies shut down. Zhu said the data increase chances the government might allow China’s currency, the yuan, to rise in value. Beijing has held the yuan steady against the dollar for 18

months to help Chinese exporters but is under pressure from Washington and other trading partners that say it is undervalued and is swelling China’s trade surplus. Combining data from January and February shows exports surged 31.4 percent during the period from a year earlier, the customs agency said. Analysts say looking at that two-month period compensates for the distortion of the Lunar New Year holiday and produces a more accurate picture of China’s trade.

But the job gains weren’t enough, in many cases, to lower the unemployment rate. For example, California reported the largest job gains, of 32,500, though its unemployment rate also rose. Illinois, New York, Washington state and Minnesota reported the next highest totals of new jobs. The lowest unemployment rates are still found in upper Plains states, with North Dakota’s jobless rate of 4.2 percent the lowest in the nation. Nebraska and South Dakota had the next lowest rates, at 4.6 percent and 4.8 percent, respectively. In January, the national unemployment rate fell to 9.7 percent from 10 percent the previous month. Last week, the Labor Department said the national rate was unchanged in February at 9.7 percent, a better reading than most analysts expected.

WASHINGTON (AP) – Unemployment rose in 30 states in January, the Labor Department said Wednesday, evidence that jobs remain scarce in most regions of the country. The data is somewhat better than December, when 43 states reported higher unemployment rates, but worse than November, when rates fell in most states. Still, five states reported record-high joblessness in January: California, at 12.5 percent; South Carolina, 12.6 percent; Florida, 11.9 percent; North Carolina, 11.1 percent; and Georgia, 10.4 percent. Michigan’s unemployment rate is still the nation’s highest, at 14.3 percent, followed by Nevada, with 13 percent and Rhode Island at 12.7 percent. South Carolina and California round out the top five. There were some signs of job creation. Thirty-one states added jobs in January, up from only 11 in the previous month.
