Drops in state revenue leave DOT officials to consider toll roads PROJECTS


N.C. Department of Transportation officials said toll roads have not been eliminated from a list of options to battle a declining budget. In its five-year plan for 2015-20, it estimates the following shortfalls. Major Highway Projects • 1,000 major projects – $45 billion • Available DOT funding – $9 billion Non-Highway Projects • 900 non-highway projects – $9 billion • Available DOT funding – $1.5 billion


GREEENSBORO – State officials say toll roads aren’t off the table when it comes to filling a gap in N.C. Department of Transportation funding. A $300 million loss in annual revenue since 2007 must be covered in “innovative ways,� and that doesn’t exclude the potential for toll roads to be installed in parts of the state, said Gene Conti, N.C.

Wallburg parents say they would like to see the system redraw district lines so some of the school’s students can attend Friendship and Hasty elementary schools.

Parents dispute Wallburg enrollment report BY DARRICK IGNASIAK ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

WALLBURG – There are several issues associated with any consideration for Wallburg Elementary to become any larger than it is right now, said Fred Mock, superintendent of Davidson County Schools. Responding to parent concerns of overcrowding at Wallburg Elementary, Mock said he wasn’t “sure if the infrastructure could accommodate a large number of additional students without some major modifications.� Parents expressed concern to The High Point Enterprise after Jay Temple, the system’s executive director of auxiliary services,

told the Davidson County Board of Education earlier this month Wallburg Elementary could hold an additional 200 students. Mock said he requested Temple examine how much space is available at the school because of overcrowding conditions. “Anytime we have a school that is overcrowded, we ask for reports on population trends,� Mock said. “How many kids were in the school last year? Are there classrooms that can be better utilized to accommodate short-term growth? There are concerns that parents raised and legitimately so. Our board knows this.� Temple reported to the board of education that Wallburg Elementary had an enrollment of 907

students. He said there had been no growth in student population during the first half of the school year. Temple’s report frustrated many Wallburg parents, who would like to see the system do something about overcrowding at the school. “We are not concerned if there is one more square inch in a 30year-old rusted-out unsanitary trailer to sit another student, but that our students cannot get a quality education with all of our staff and resources totally maxed out,� said Brooke Cable, co-president of the Wallburg Elementary Parent Teacher Organization. “There is no reason to come up with solutions on how to cram

more kids into Wallburg,� said Amy Galbraith, co-vice president of the Wallburg PTO. “If there wasn’t a very logical option, I would agree that we need to get creative with space. The solution is to let all the schools share in the crowding.� Wallburg parents have expressed they would like to see the system redraw district lines so some of the school’s students can attend Friendship and Hasty Elementary schools. Through the first month of the 2009-10 school year, Friendship had 494 students and Hasty 571, according to the school system. | 888-3657

January jobless rates shoot up across region BY PAUL B. JOHNSON ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

TRIAD – Maybe January finally was rock bottom for the area’s job market. Tens of thousands of people looking for a paycheck in the High Point area can only hope so. Unemployment rates increased from December to January across the region and state, the N.C. Employment Security Commission reported Friday. Historically, jobless levels go up during January as seasonal hiring ends following the Christmas holiday season. The city of High Point








unemployment rate increased from 10.8 percent in December to 11.9 percent in January. The local rate was 10.4 percent in January of last year, meaning the city jobless level has been at or above 10 percent each month for a year.






The Davidson County jobless level increased from 13.4 percent in December to 14.2 percent in January, giving the county the highest unemployment rate in the Piedmont other than Rockingham County at 14.6 percent. Randolph County’s rate

increased from 11.4 percent in December to 12.8 percent in January, while Guilford County’s rate went up from 11.2 percent to 11.8 percent, the ESC reports. A local job service official can’t say with certainty that the January unemployment numbers were the ebb for the area job market, but signs since January have pointed to an improved atmosphere for hiring, said Ikel Williams, manager of the High Point ESC office. “We are starting to see a little pickup in job orders and job placement. Employers are starting to feel


a little better. Business has picked up for a lot of employers,� Williams said. The region should benefit from signs of a national economic turn for the better, said Mike McCully, director of economics and international business at High Point University. “The national indicators do seem to be looking up, and eventually our state should be part of this rising tide. Unemployment is always one of the last things to improve after a recession,� McCully said. | 888-3528

Thomasville Medical Center unveils new services

DCCC student faces drug charge ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT


THOMASVILLE – Celebrating its 80th anniversary, Thomasville Medical Center will open its doors Sunday afternoon for the public to see several additions and renovations to the hospital. “We are celebrating our 80th anniversary this whole year,” said Jane Wilder, the hospital’s director of community relations. “One of the things we wanted to express is that people tend to think that sometimes you tend to go in a lot slower mode. But in health care we are always needing to add ne services, so people won’t have to travel out of the county to have things done.” Wilder said the open house, which will take place 2-4 p.m., will showcase the hospital’s new Comprehensive Wound Care Center and Pulmonary Rehabilitation Unit, renovations to the cafeteria and digital mammography center and the new Sick Child Care Center and the Palliative Care Unit. Nancy Hollis, the hospital’s day care manager, said the Sick Child Care Center will serve Thomasville Medical Center employees and the public. Youngsters with minor illnesses, who have a temperature at 102 degrees and below, would be allowed in the Sick Child Care center, Hollis

the child is sick.” Tosha Briles, nurse manager of the intensive and palliative care units, said the new Palliative Care Unit also will meet a need in the community. “It’s mainly to give patients a better quality of life,” Briles said. “We have just seen that there is a large population in the community that has chronic illness.” Wilder said the renovations to the cafeteria were made possible by

the Hospital Guild before it disbanded in 2002. The Hospital Guild provided the medical center with $73,000 to use for renovating the Garden Terrace Cafe and gift boutique. Wilder said the cafeteria will now remain open daily until 8:30 p.m. instead of closing shortly after lunch. “That makes it more accessible for patients and families, as well as staff,” she said. | 888-3657

Perdue forfeits $48,000 in questioned donations RALEIGH (AP) – North Carolina Gov. Beverly Perdue forfeited $48,000 in political contributions on Friday because her campaign said it’s worried the donors may have been unlawfully reimbursed by their employer for their giving. Perdue campaign treasurer Oscar Harris wrote the State Board of Elections on Friday with a check and an explanation. The Democratic incumbent’s campaign said it wanted to err on the side of caution after it became concerned about the origin of 12 donations from nine people working for or involved with Atlantic Corp. of Wilmington. State Republican Party Chairman Tom Fetzer raised questions at a news

conference last month about multiple contributions from Atlantic Corp. employees of $4,000 – the maximum amount allowed in each campaign period – with several given on the same date. The company’s owner also had political connections to former Democratic Gov. Mike Easley. State laws prevent corporate campaign contributions and anyone from giving on behalf of someone else. Someone breaking those laws can be charged with a misdemeanor and face monetary penalties. Perdue’s campaign said in a news release that never was it aware that a contributor was trying to circumvent the law. “We took this action because we have become


concerned about the integrity of these contributions,” the campaign said in a written statement. “While we are unable to make a firm factual determination that this was the case, we have chosen to divest ourselves of these funds.” Atlantic Corp.’s principal owner is Rusty Carter, who was subpoenaed during the State Board of Elections hearing into unreported airplane flights by the political committee of former Gov. Mike Easley. The News & Observer of Raleigh reported last year that Carter is a fraternity brother of Easley’s and flew him to an event during the 2004 campaign. Atlantic Corp. sells industrial packaging products. Atlantic Corp. attorney

Michael Murchison said Carter wasn’t available for comment Friday but said the company and its management “have already contacted the relevant authorities and offered to fully cooperate with any inquiry and provide full disclosure.” Rusty Carter isn’t listed as one of the donors. Campaign records filed with the State Board of Elections list his son, Wesley M. Carter, as giving $4,000 on April 10, 2008. The donation was one of the 12 forfeited. Perdue’s campaign said Friday it decided to examine the donations identified by the state GOP and that the State Board of Elections had not contacted the campaign about investigating the donations.

He was given a court date of April 29 in Lexington District Court.

Ivan Grijalva, 18, of Lexington, was issued a citation on both charges.


Library receives book overdue by 45 years LONDON (AP) – It’s common to return a library book late – but not by half a century. Staff at a British library say they were surprised and puzzled when they received a book that was 45 years overdue through their mailbox. Alison Lawrie, the prin-

cipal assistant at Dinnington Library, near northern England’s Sheffield, says the Penguin first edition copy of “Quartermass and the Pit” by Nigel Kneale was due back on Oct. 15, 1965. She says the borrower remains a mystery because the library records don’t

go back that far, and the sender didn’t attach a letter or note with the book. Lawrie said Friday the sender need not worry about a hefty fine. She says: “If the person who returned the book wants to come forward, we’d love to know the story behind it.”

Parkway, he said. The Triangle Parkway is a 3.4-mile strip that extends from Interstate 40 at N.C. 147 in Durham County south to N.C. 540 in Wake County. “If we hadn’t chosen to go forward with this project by tolling, the Triangle would have had to wait until about 2020 to get that project under way,” he said. “The region chose to do that project a decade sooner by tolling.” A study also is under way to determine if toll roads would be beneficial along the I-95 corridor, Conti said. The DOT’s inability to fund the state’s major projects is displayed in its five-year plan from 2015-20. According to the report, more than 1,000 potential highway construction projects identified across the state would cost $45 billion to complete. About $9 billion in DOT funds is available for the projects. Nonhighway projects, which

Local transportation leaders at the event agreed that toll roads couldn’t be written off at this time, especially with projects like the future Interstate 73 and Interstate 74 corridors hanging in the balance. “I think what the government has asked the secretary and the board to do is to keep our eyes open for any kind of creative opportunity to generate money to spend on roads,” said Michael Fox, an attorney appointed to represent the DOT’s district seven, including Alamance, Guilford, Caswell, Rockingham and Orange County. “Toll roads are certainly an option. We would be foolish in this area if we didn’t consider it at least. Whether it’s a good idea or not, I don’t know.”

Those indirect talks would be the first under the Democratic Obama administration and the hawkish Israeli government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. At a news conference after the meeting, Clin-

made was useful and productive,� she said, “and we are continuing our discussions with him and his government.� That was a far cry from Clinton’s earlier condemnation of the housing plan in east Jerusalem.

Rains swamp camps holding Haiti’s homeless PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti – One of the heaviest rainfalls since Haiti’s Jan. 12 earthquake swamped homeless camps Friday, sweeping screaming residents into eddies of water, overflowing latrines and panicking thousands. The overnight downpour sent water coursing down the slopes of a former golf course that now serves as a temporary home for about 45,000 people. There were no reports of deaths in the camp, a town-size maze of blue, orange and silver tarps located behind the country club used by the U.S. Army 82nd Airborne as a forward-operating base.

U.S. should stop subsidizing Israeli regime Vice President Joe Biden should be commended for standing up to Israel. I think it would great if the Obama administration would treat the Israelis and Palestinians as equals. But anyone who has read a history book or newspaper knows that the White House and Congress almost always stand by Israel no matter what they do. Our government has been giving Israel $3 billion to $5 billion a year for decades. Why? No country in the Middle East is going to attack Israel because they would wiped off the map. Even before 9/11, Israel considered assassinations, kidnapping and torture as legitimate parts of government. They have chemical, and nuclear weapons of mass destruction. Our government should stop subsidizing the Israeli regime. The Palestinians deserve an independent sovereign country, just like Israel. CHUCK MANN Greensboro

ABC system needs examination

Mayor Scott Morris, 230 W. Salisbury Ave. (PO Box 1458), Denton 27239; 859-2888 h, 7984090 w Barbara Ann Surratt Hogan, 316 W. First St., Denton 27239; 859-4269 h

Star-News of Wilmington, March 15 North Carolina’s liquor control system isn’t really a “system” so much as a collection of happy-go-lucky boards that operate pretty much as they please. The state Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission sets prices and approves plans for new stores, but beyond that has been a hands-off overseer. If disparities in salaries hadn’t already made that clear, a look at construction costs – and bidding protocol – for ABC stores around the state brought that point into focus. New Hanover County’s board barely bothered to ask for bids, and then it was only for a shell of a building. Just coincidentally, of course, the work for four recent stores had the same contractor and the exact same subcontractors, handpicked by now comfortably retired Administrator Billy Williams. The StarNews’ first story on Williams’ salary grabbed the interest of state officials, including Gov. Beverly Perdue. As a result of the newspaper’s reporting, Perdue and ABC Commission Chairman Jon Williams have ordered closer scrutiny and changes. The newspaper didn’t set out to do an expose. It set out to report information that the public has a right to know, and needs to know. But as with all good journalism, the reporters discovered new information with every document request. The result has been a long series – some readers suggest too long – of articles that look inside a broken system. This isn’t about one man’s salary but about a system with so little oversight that each board essentially operates as a private business. Now that the taxpayers know what’s been going on and the politicians are paying attention, some long overdue changes may be coming. With Perdue and the Honorables watching, the ABC Commission is recommending some modifications, including the possibility of consolidating ABC boards to one per county. Perdue, meanwhile, wants to know what would happen if the state allowed privatization of some or all liquor sales. ... Not all recommendations should be pursued, and there will be legitimate disagreements about how, and how far, any changes should go. For example, county and city officials would object loudly should the state, desperate to tap into new sources of revenue, attempt to change the formula that sends most of the profits earned in local ABC stores to local governments without replacing that money. But to do nothing is the equivalent of endorsing a system where the players make all the rules.



The High Point Enterprise is committed to this community ... and always will serve it by being an intensely local newspaper of excellent quality every day.

Hearing aid salesmen needed in Washington S everal days ago, I saw an ad in our local newspaper about “Deaf History Month” being observed from March 13 to April 15. Having taught college speech classes, I am well aware that millions of Americans have hearing problems. We simply conclude all too often that people are not speaking up or they garble their words and have poor enunciation. All that makes it difficult to understand what others are saying. The problem may not be in the speaking, but in the hearing. If we do not listen carefully and intently, we may miss much of what is being said. Most of us have trained our minds and ears to hear only what we want to hear. We try to do too many things at the same time. When I was a little boy, my wise and intelligent Mother used to say,

“Now, listen to what I am saying.” Sadly, and always to my regret, there were times when my childish mind concentrated on something else. Mom would then say, SHARING “You only hear what you want to hear.” THE SPIRIT That is one of the problems we face in Bill education, busiEllis ness, family life, ■■■ politics, government, health care, sports and every area of life. Leaders and followers do not listen. They do not hear what is being said. I’m still trying to absorb the meaning of what Kin Hubbard observed about listening. He called it, “The only way to entertain some folks.” Is it that some people are

not happy unless they are talking and imagine you are listening? The ad I referenced had a lot of space devoted to various hearing aid services. That is why I think our nation’s capital and state capitals are fertile grounds for a profitable business. People in those centers of power and legislation are not hearing what the people of the states and nation are saying. They do not listen. They do not hear. They do not understand. They do not care. Those who do not hear what the people who voted them into office are saying may soon be voted out of office and deserve to be voted out. We elect people to the House of Representatives and the Senate to represent us. Some elected officials, at every level, may become so self-centered and deaf that they forget they are elected to represent their constituents. Competent hearing-aid salesmen




could have a thriving business in Washington and in very state. It seems more and more with each passing day, that our government representatives are not only not hearing us, but it is simply because they do not listen. It becomes a comfortable position with lots of benefits and a great pension for life. Little has changed over the years in that regard. Some serve without conscience. Maybe we should pay attention to what Jesus once said: “He who has ears to hear, let him hear!” (Matthew 11:15). Intelligent and wise people have listened and heard for centuries. It can be disastrous to refuse to hear what is being said. It is time for all of us to “Listen up!” BILL ELLIS, P. O. Box 345, Scott Depot, WV 25560 | (304) 757-6089

Bravery is knowing the right thing to do and doing it willingly in the face of Ecclesiastes 3: 1-2 considerable risk, and even fear, with the full knowledge of the risk. It is not fearlessness; being fearless in the face of danger is reckless or foolhardy and a man who does what he knows to be the right thing despite his fear is undoubtedly braver than the These things I have spoken unto man who feels no fear.

We usually think of bravery as involving physical risk such as injury or death, but there is also moral bravery, where we risk humiliation or the negative judgement of our friends, family or colleagues. For example, speaking an unpleasant but necessary truth, such as telling someone that what they are doing is wrong, as in blowing the whistle on illegal practices in the workplace. Doing the right thing frequently requires courage, because we are not always rewarded, and may even be punished or ostracized for doing so. St. Thomas Aquinas considered bravery to be crucial for the virtuous life precisely because a kind of moral or psychological courage is often necessary to carry out the other virtues. The good life requires fortitude and endurance because it is sometimes a long and hard journey, and one brave act does not make one brave.

WASHINGTON (AP) – The government is announcing a recall of 1.2 million high chairs it says pose a fall hazard to children. The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the voluntary recall Thursday involving the product made by Graco Children’s Products Inc., of Atlanta. The regulatory agency said “screws holding the front legs of the high chair can loosen and fall out” and said cracking plastic brackets can cause the high chair to “tip over unexpectedly.” These tip-overs resulted in 24 reports of injuries including bumps and bruises to the head, a hairline fracture to the arm and cuts, bumps and bruises and scratches to the body.”

FARGO, N.D. (AP) – The projected crest of the Red River at Fargo, N.D., has dropped a half-foot, which is good news for a city braced for flooding. The National Weather Service revised its projection Friday to show the Red at 19.5 feet above the flood stage by Sunday morning. That’s down from an earlier forecast of 20 feet. Spokesman Mark Frazier says models suggest water levels should decline slowly but steadily

High Point Bank relocating S. Main branch BY PAUL B. JOHNSON ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – The branch of High Point Bank & Trust in the southern part of the city isn’t relocating far from its current home, but bank officials hope the move goes a long way toward improving service to customers. Construction has begun on the new branch at S. Main Street and Fairfield Road. The goal is to relocate the branch by the end of September, said Assistant Vice President Jane Blackwell. The branch is relocating from the northwest corner of the intersection to

– is estimated to open in the fall of next year, said Edward Tam, a principal with Belleau Wood Developments out of Greensboro. High Point Bank reports that it has received many inquiries from people wondering why the bank is constructing a new office across the street from its existing branch. “Our primary concern is the safety and convenience of our customers, who are dealing with ever-increasing traffic at that intersection,” said bank President Charles Myers. “In addition, the traffic pattern around our branch can no longer safely handle the increased business at

our drive-through lanes.” The bank considered alternatives, including relocation of the drive-through lanes, but no viable solution emerged, he said. “Compared to newer offices we built in Kernersville and Greensboro, our Fairfield office just isn’t the customer-focused building we think our customers deserve. When all points were considered, a new office just made sense to us,” Myers said. The new branch will feature a brighter, less cluttered interior with more amenities for employees and customers, he said. | 888-3528

City’s top employers remain stable in 2009 despite tough year BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – The fact that the top employers in High Point remained virtually the same in 2009 compared to 2008 bodes well for the local job sector, according to High Point Economic Development Corp. officials. According to the HPEDC’s 2009 annual report, the largest employer last year was Bank of America with 2,087 employees. The company increased its work force from 2008 when it employed 2,000 people and also ranked as the city’s top employer. Guilford County Schools ranked as the second largest employer on the top 20 list, while High Point Regional Health System came in third. The organizations switched places from 2008 when the school system ranked as the third largest employer and HPRHS ranked second. The only company dropped from the list was The Valspar Corp., which ranked as the 20th largest employer in 2008. Harland Clarke, a check manufacturing facility that opened last summer in northern High Point,

The subtle shifts are a usual occurrence in each annual report, said Loren Hill, EDC president. “Over the nine years I’ve been with the High Point EDC, there has always been just a little movement on the list from year to year,” he said. “So in the challenging year that just finished, it is a good sign that the only company to leave the list was replaced by Harland Clarke, which

brought 350 jobs to High Point within a six-month period.” Other employers that made the top 20 list included Thomas Built Buses at No. 5 with 1,265 employees and New Breed Logistics at No. 15 with 475 employees. The list includes four manufacturers, five customer service companies, four health care organizations and four distribution-related companies. “That kind of diversity

is exactly what a community needs,” Hill said. The city has lost more than 20,000 jobs since 2000 in manufacturing, tobacco, textiles and furniture, according to figures from the EDC. Because of that, the organization continues in its efforts with city leaders to focus on the logistics industry, Hill said. “The region is within 650 miles of more than half of the U.S. population and major markets and is therefore well-placed to




nurture the supply chain logistics transportation management industry. He also said traditional

outbreak on the latest cruise has not yet been determined, but passengers reported symptoms including diarrhea and vomiting. Linda McNeil, 61, of Hendersonville, N.C., got sick during the cruise but was better by the time the ship returned. She and her husband had been concerned before they left. “Yes, yes we were, but it wasn’t going to keep us from going,” she said. “This was our first cruise so we were going to go and it didn’t discourage us from doing it again.” Davis Lever, 81, and his wife Beth Lawton, 80, of Summerville, S.C., said they weren’t anxious about sailing on the Mercury. Neither were ill and both praised the crew. “They just couldn’t have done more. They had clear plastic over all the food at the buffet line. You didn’t touch anything, they put stuff on your plate,” Lawton said. “At every doorway they

had wipes or sprays.” The couple has been on eight cruises and said the trip would not discourage them from going on a ninth. When the first Mercury cruise returned Feb. 26, the vessel remained in port an extra day for cleaning. This time, the Mercury will remain three days for cleaning before it is scheduled to sail again Sunday. Celebrity Cruises spokeswoman Cynthia Martinez said the line is bringing 50 additional crew members to Charleston to help clean and a local company will steam the carpets in all staterooms and public areas. Celebrity Cruises is owned by Miami-based Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. CDC spokesman Ricardo Beato said the sailing could be delayed if government vessel sanitation officials or if the Celebrity Cruises staff feel there hasn’t been enough time to decontaminate.

Would you like fries with that bouquet? G

reen Hill Farm in Chapel Hill has been growing hostas for more than 20 years and has introduced many exciting new cultivars that are sports or seedlings as well as hybrids of other varieties. Bob and Nancy Solberg own the farm and are well known in the hosta industry and grower circles. If you want to visit them, the nursery is open for local retail sales for six consecutive Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays beginning the middle of April each year and ending with our annual Memorial Day Open House. Get directions at their Web site Here are some unique hostas described from their Web site catalog that sound almost good enough to eat like their names. Curly Fries has agavelike long narrow leaves that are stiff making it the most unique hosta to be introduced

in years. It will grow nicely in half a day of sun. Its highly ruffled narrow leaves emerge yellow and then fade to near white. The ECOLOGY scape is deep purple, topped Gwyn with lavender Riddick flowers. It makes ■■■ a great container plant or grows very well in the garden. Strawberry Banana Smoothie is a hosta with a very bright, translucent yellow with bright red, not purple, petioles. According to Solberg, it makes a medium clump of “screaming yellow� foliage that holds that color well in morning sun and produces pretty lavender flowers in July and August. A makes a great container hosta that shows off its bright red petioles well.


Solberg describes Beet Salad as “... beet red petioles and beet red scapes with rich purple flowers in July to be sure, but it also has a thin, beet red margin, if only one vein wide. This hosta has great pollen and does set red seed pods and appears to pass along the red margin. It is the first wave of the future of red hostas.� Orange Marmalade has a breath-taking mound of heart-shaped blue leaves with a center that emerges bright yellow, then turns an orangegold before becoming pale yellow or white depending on the amount of sun. Lavender flowers appear on stems in July and accent the beautifully variegated leaves all summer. Tongue Twister has dark green leaves that twist upward out of the clump. This great little hosta looks as fresh in October as it does in May. The light purple scapes produce

light lavender flowers in September and light purple pods in October. Another new variety to look for this spring is Pink Heartbreaker Eastern redbud from Eaton Farms, Leesport, Pa. The ornamental tree was selected for its outstanding weeping growth habit. It is estimated that it will reach about 10 feet in height and width as a vigorous grower. It has not been around long enough to see how big it will be at maturity. Eaton says it will make a uniform umbrella shaped tree with pink flowers in the spring that are typical of the species. It was discovered as a seedling growing at the farm. Rose growers often wish for a rose that can be grown as a patio plant but also with stems long enough to cut for bouquets. Ball Horticulture Company has now solved the dilemma. They have developed

a revolutionary new series of roses called My Bouquet. It is a cross between a miniature rose and a hybrid tea form. As a cut flower it has a 7-10 day vase life according to Ball. It will grow to 2-3 feet high with a spread of 18-20 inches so it will make a great patio potted plant. It comes in six exciting colors: pink, bicolored mauve with cream, yellow, coral with a white reverse, carmine pink and peach. They should be on the market this spring.

Girlfriend balks at dinner with both sets of parents



ear Abby: I’ve been dating “Amanda� for eight months and everything is going great. I’ve met her parents, and she has met mine. Two days ago, I mentioned that we should plan a dinner with both sets of parents since they have not met yet. Amanda told me that our parents shouldn’t meet until we move in together or are engaged. I felt offended. When do you think is the right time for our parents to meet? – It’s Only Dinner!

American Airlines wants exemption from tarmac rule NEW YORK – Add American Airlines to the list of carriers that want out of the government’s new rule to limit the time passengers can be held on the tarmac. American has filed for a temporary exemption with the Department of Transportation, saying delays caused by the closure of the main runway at New York’s JFK airport could cost them millions in fines. JetBlue and Delta asked for exemptions last week. Those three

airlines are the largest operators at JFK. The new rule is set to go into effect next month. It could mean fines of up to $27,500 per passenger if a plane is stuck on the tarmac for more than three hours. For an average Boeing 737, that could mean a fine of nearly $4 million. American said the gridlock due to construction at JFK will lead airlines to “cancel flights rather than run the risk of incurring such crippling penalties.�

Dear Only Dinner: I disagree with your girlfriend. There are no hard and fast rules these days about when the parents of couples should meet. And after eight months, I would think both sets of parents would be interested in meeting each other.

Even when her mother-in-law died she wouldn’t receive people in her home. I find Darlene’s behavior insulting. It has become a frequent topic of conversation. I don’t know what her home life was growing up, but her husband’s family had an open- door policy in their home. Please advise me why someone would never welcome anyone into her home. – Shut Out in Charlottesville

Dear Abby: I have a close friend, “Darlene,� whom I have known for 30 years. She has never once in all that time invited me into her home. Darlene never has anyone inside except for immediate family. If you go there to take her something, she greets you outside if she knows you’re coming. If she

Dear Shut Out: Darlene may be ashamed of the way her house looks inside, or she may be a hoarder. If you really need an explanation, you should be asking her. In light of your 30year friendship, please stop personalizing this because it appears her hang-up is long-standing and deep- seated. And to

gossip about it behind her back seems cruel and won’t help the situation. Dear Abby: I try to be positive and considerate of others. I believe if you smile at the world, it will smile back. The exception to that is my mother. Mom is the most negative person I have ever met. Nothing has ever been good enough for her – and now my sister is starting to behave just like her. If misery loves company, they can have each other. My kids dislike being around their grandmother and can see how upset she makes me when we talk on the phone. Abby, I’d like my mom to see her grandkids grow up, and much as I don’t want to admit it, I need her support and guidance. How can I get Mom to see the brighter side of things? – Upbeat in Oklahoma Dear Upbeat: Forgive me if this seems negative, but you can’t change other people

– only the way you react to them. You might be able to deflect some of the unpleasantness your mother creates if, instead of letting her upset you when she says something negative, you respond with something positive. Because your children don’t like to be around her, limit their exposure if she’s being toxic. And do not allow her to minimize their accomplishments or make them feel “less than,� because they may begin to believe it. As to needing your mother’s support and guidance, I sympathize with your wish, but please understand that she may not be able to give you what you’re looking for. And, if that’s the case, you may need to find support and guidance elsewhere.

Only a lemming should be willing to jump to a conclusion. If you’re a lemming, you play today’s contract as the actual declarer did. South’s decision to suppress his spade suit as a passed hand and respond 2NT paid off when West led a spade against 3NT. South won with the ten and took the three top clubs. Alas, East pitched a low heart, and when West won the next club, he shifted to a diamond. East won with the jack and returned a diamond, and West took the king and cashed the ace of spades before leading a third diamond to East’s ace. Down one.

CORRECT LEAD South jumped to the fatal conclusion that the clubs would run. His correct lead at Trick Two was a diamond, starting to set up an intermediate card in that suit. Say East takes the jack and leads a heart. South wins in dummy and leads another diamond, and West wins and exits with a diamond to East’s ace. South wins the heart return and leads a spade. He is sure of two spades, three hearts, a diamond and three clubs.

It’s time to make modifications to the way you have been living your life. ★★★ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Help others but don’t get taken for granted. There’s a fine line between what needs to be done and what doesn’t. You may feel the need to keep a secret if you don’t want someone to take what you are doing the wrong way. ★★★★ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Friends and colleagues will recognize the improvements you make. You will learn a lot by participating in community events and can impress the people you encounter with your knowledge and your views. Emotional dealings with friends and relatives will slow you down. ★★ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Make changes that are not expected.

Revisit the goals you’ve always wanted to aspire to but didn’t -- and go for it. Sharing your thoughts and plans for the future will give you the help and support you need. ★★★★★ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Read the fine print.

Does DHEA build supermen?


ear Dr. Donohue: Numerous over-the-counter supplements such as DHEA and herbs claim to stimulate testosterone production. As I am one of many 70-plus-yearolds who lift weights to increase strength and muscle mass before we become too old, do you recommend such supplements? If so, which ones? – Anon.


Dehydroepiandrosterone, from this point on called DHEA, is a hormone made by the adrenal glands. It has weak male hormone properties. Some of it is converted into testosterone, the major male hormone. An aside is necessary here. Many athletes and bodybuilders resort to taking male hormones to increase their strength and muscle size. These drugs are called steroids, an unfortunate choice of a word. “Steroids” include all kinds of hormones – cortisone, prednisone, estrogen and male hormones. For clarity, male hormones should be called either that or anabolic hormones, hormones that build body tissues, especially muscles. DHEA is a weak anabolic hormone. Let me cite for you a study from the New England Journal of Medicine, a respected medical publication. The authors of this article gave 40 well-trained athletes DHEA for more than one year. After one full year, they found no increase in these athletes’ muscle















size or strength. A study of DHEA in older men demonstrated a slight imHEALTH provement in the ratio Dr. Paul of muscle Donohue to body fat. ■■■ Users had a bit more muscle tissue at the end of the study than they had at the beginning, but not a whole lot. The safety of long-term DHEA use is lacking. Male hormones promote prostate-gland enlargement, and they can foster the growth of any prostate cancer cells that might be in the gland. I would steer clear of all male hormone products for muscle growth. None of this applies to men who are deficient in male hormones. They can take hormone-replacement therapy safely under the direction of their doctors. As for herbal stimulation of male hormone production, I can’t find credible evidence that it works. Dear Dr. Donohue: I have a fairly large Baker’s cyst at the back of my knee. I first noticed it three years ago. I am an active senior tennis player. The past couple of years it has grown and makes my knee feel tight, but I have no pain. Two different doctors have told me not to worry because if they drain the cyst it likely will recur.

What should I do? – H.S. A Baker’s cyst is a behind-the-knee bulge. Actually, it’s a swollen bursa. Bursas are small disks found between tendons and bones that decrease friction as tendons rub over the bone. The fluid in a Baker’s cyst comes from the joint. It’s the fluid that irrigates the joint. Usually, an overproduction of joint fluid indicates joint trouble, like arthritis. A one-way street runs between the knee and the Baker’s bursa. Fluid can drain into the bursa, but not out of it. That’s why it grows. In your position, you can choose to do whatever you wish. Ignoring the bulge is a rational choice. It could rupture, and that’s painful, but that’s the extent of not having it treated now. Cysts do recur after drainage. Instilling cortisone into them sometimes prevents that from happening. You should, however, see if there is a problem with your knee that needs attention. Dear Dr. Donohue: Our son is middle-age, and his Achilles’ tendon was injured while playing basketball. Is surgery the only remedy? – L.P. If his tendon is inflamed, rest, anti-inflammatory medicines and warm soaks are all that’s needed. If the tendon tore, and the tear is large, surgery is the usual treatment. Small tears don’t always require surgery.

Blue Devils breeze again JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Duke’s confident mascot wore a piece of tape across his forehead that read: “Played In, Blown Out.” The Blue Devils didn’t disappoint. Avoiding the upset bug that has taken down favorite after favorite in the NCAA tournament, the top-seeded Atlantic Coast Conference champions opened play in the South Regional with a dominating 73-44 victory Friday night over No. 16 seed Arkansas-Pine Bluff. Kyle Singler had 22 points and 10 rebounds for Duke, which never trailed. Jon Scheyer scored 13 and Lance Thomas 12. Nolan Smith added 10 points on a subpar shooting night (3 for 10) for the junior guard. The victory gave coach Mike Krzyzewski his 11th 30win season in three decades at Duke, which has made 10 trips to the Final Four under him, though none since 2006. The Blue Devils (30-5) played like a team intent on changing that, pressing their overmatched opponents to start

the game, building a 39-20 halftime lead and never giving Arkansas-Pine Bluff (18-16) a sense that the SWAC champions might have a chance to win. The Golden Lions, appearing in the NCAAs for the first time, beat Winthrop 6144 in the tournament opener Tuesday and are led by coach George Ivory, who played on a heavy underdog that gave powerful Duke a scare in the opening round 24 years ago. But this group of Blue Devils has learned they can’t take anything for granted in March. Duke survived a first-round scare against Belmont two years ago, and Krzyzewski and his players were determined to set the tone for what it hopes will be a strong run with a sharp performance. Arkansas-Pine Bluff shot 32 percent and turned the ball over 16 times. Tavaris Washington led the Golden Lions with nine points. They turned in a respectable defensive performance, but struggled to score.

delusions about beating top-seeded Kentucky in a high-scoring, finesse-type game when they meet in tonight’s second round. The Demon Deacons had to struggle to survive their first-round encounter with Texas. They had to find a way to get hands on teammates’ missed shots for 25 second-chance points. And they needed point guard Ishmael Smith’s pull-up jumper in the final seconds of overtime to win. “We have our shortcomings as a team,” Wake Forest coach Dino Gaudio said. “We don’t shoot the ball real well sometimes. We have to be really, really good on defense. We have to be really good on the backboard for us to be there to win basketball games.”

Wake’s toughness concerns Calipari NEW ORLEANS (AP) — John Calipari had to stop watching film of Wake Forest, if only for the sake of his appetite. The Kentucky coach counts himself a big fan of New Orleans’ renowned restaurant scene, but if he wanted to be in any shape to dine out on Friday, he needed to take a break from the replays of Demon Deacon rebounders overwhelming Texas on the boards Thursday night. “They outrebounded Texas by 25. Think about that — they got 20 offensive rebounds against Texas, who prides itself in that toughness and that rebounding,” Calipari said. “I just watched tape and, you know, you get sick to your stomach.” Wake, the No. 9 seed in the East Regional, has no



Williams College’s James Wang (left) shoots against Guilford’s Josh Pittman during the first half of a semifinal game at the NCAA college basketball Division III tournament on Friday in Salem, Va. Williams defeated the Quakers, 97-88.

Guilford’s title hopes end SALEM, Va. (AP) — Blake Schultz scored 18 of his team-high 25 points in the second half to lift Williams College past Guilford College 97-88 in an NCAA Division III national semifinal on Friday. Williams (30-1) extended its winning streak to 21 games and advanced to the national championship game on Saturday afternoon. Schultz hit five of Williams’ championship series record 16 3-pointers, helping the Ephs rally from an 11-point deficit early in the second half. Williams trailed 46-35 after a three-point play by Guilford’s Martin Stephenson with 18:42 to go, but the Ephs went on a 17-6 run and tied the game

at 52 on a 3-pointer from Schultz with 12:20 remaining. Williams then put the game away in the final four minutes by scoring on its final 11 possessions. The Ephs hit all eight of their free throw attempts in that stretch, including four by Schultz, who also hit 8 of 14 from the floor and 5 of 7 from beyond the 3-point arc. James Wang added 19 points for the Ephs, while Alex Rubin finished with 18. Tyler Sanborn led Guilford (30-3) with a gamehigh 27 points and 13 rebounds. Clay Henson added 17 for the Quakers. Josh Pittman, the former Trinity star, had 13 on 5of-9 shooting.

BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) — Joey Logano backed up his fast showing in practice by winning the first pole of his career Friday at Bristol Motor Speedway. Logano posted a lap at 124.630 mph in his Toyota to earn the first starting spot for Sunday’s race. His previous best qualifying effort was fifth at Darlington last year. “I have always been fast here,” he said. “I’ve always been fast and I’ve always been caught up in a wreck or knocked the fender and blew a tire, stubbed in the nose, blew a motor — I’ve about done it all here besides have an uneventful race.” Kurt Busch, winner of the last race two weeks ago at Atlanta, qualified second with a lap at 123.857 in his Dodge. He is a five-time winner at Bristol, but hasn’t been to Victory Lane here since 2006. High Point’s Dave Blaney qualified third at 123.849. He admitted that he doesn’t know if team owner Phil Parsons will allow him to run all of Sunday’s race or order him to park the car and collect purse money. Michael Waltrip, who qualified a second car for Parsons, made the field and said he knew he’d park early Sunday.




hursday and Friday brought us NCAA Tournament action that started shortly after noon and ran past midnight. While the men’s March Madness will stick to mostly daylight hours today and Sunday, it’s worth staying up late to follow the first two nights of the Women’s NCAA Tournament. Duke, N.C. State and North Carolina all punched their tickets to the Women’s Big Dance.

Duke’s women drew the No. 2 seed in the Memphis Regional and get a jump on their Triangle sisters with a 2:30 p.m. home tip today against 15th-seeded Hampton. Sylvia Hatchell’s Tar Heels secured their ninth straight NCAA trip – barely. The Tar Heels, seeded 10th in the Sacramento Regional, open play at about 10:30 tonight in Seattle against seventh-seeded Gonzaga. As for the Wolfpack, they garnered the

Clemson players Milton Jennings (24) and Andre Young (right) battle for a rebound with Missouri’s Keith Ramsey (15) during the first half of an NCAA first-round tournament game Friday in Buffalo, N.Y. Missouri prevailed.

Keselowski wants clarification Cornell shines bright for Ivy The deliberate contact was the first test since NASCAR decided to relax its stance on aggressive driving. “That will be my question when I meet with them,� Keselowski said when asked what “have at it� means. “That’s something that we’re all trying to understand and it sounds like it is somewhat of a work in progress.� Keselowski has been unbowed by criticism from veteran drivers, who have publicly complained he’s too aggressive, makes too many enemies and is unrepentant for his on-track actions. That hasn’t changed in the fallout after the Edwards accident, and he chose “Won’t Back Down� by Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers as his song

for driver introductions before Sunday’s race. “If you watch the Nationwide races, there’s a long list starting with Denny Hamlin and Carl Edwards and there’s just like an overall brewing of thought and discussion in the garage area,� four-time NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson said of Keselowski. “I think some of it has to do with when you come into the sport, especially at the top level as a rookie, if you like it or not, you’re going to take a few lumps before you’re given that opportunity to pass some out. “And I believe he’s come in and has passed out more bumps than he’s taken.� Keselowski maintained his defiant attitude during his first open media session since the Edwards incident.



JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Cornell lived up to its billing, showing why it’s the best team to come out of the Ivy League in more than a decade. Down to their last chance to experience success on college basketball’s biggest stage, seniors Ryan Wittman, Louis Dale and Jeff Foote led 12th-seeded Cornell to its first win in five NCAA tournament appearances Friday, a 78-65 victory over Temple in the East Regional.

WISCONSIN 53, WOFFORD 49 JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Jon Leuer scored 20 points, including a jumper and two free throws in the final 17 seconds, and fourth-seeded Wisconsin eked out a win over No. 13 seed Wofford. Jamar Diggs scored 11 of his 13 points in the first five minutes after the break, helping Wofford overcome an eightpoint deficit in its NCAA tournament debut.


Edwards defends character after comments BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) — Carl Edwards is personable and polite, always approachable. When he talks on camera, he makes sure to take his sunglasses off so the audience can see him clearly. Edwards attributes it to being raised right. Others have doubted his motives, and Tony Stewart once even described Edwards as the Eddie Haskell of NASCAR. A deliberate accident with Brad Keselowski

two weeks ago at Atlanta has Edwards once again being scrutinized. For all the talk about Keselowski being too aggressive and making too many enemies, there are just as many accusations that Edwards is a phony who suffers from anger management issues. Edwards, somewhat silent since the March 7 incident, vigorously defended his character Friday. “That’s all they can say about me because it’s

hard for them to accept that I am a decent guy,� Edwards said moments before climbing into his car at Bristol Motor Speedway. Edwards found himself back in the spotlight because of the Atlanta wreck with Keselowski. Publicly, Kevin Harvick called Edwards “fake as hell� this week in a radio interview, while others have privately wondered about the veteran driver’s ability to control his anger.

PALM HARBOR, Fla. — Padraig Harrington, already assured of a memorable week after his trip to the White House, put himself in position to make it even better at the Transitions Championship on Friday. Harrington picked up a pair of bonus birdies over the last five holes for a 6under 65, his low score of the year, and built a oneshot lead at 8-under 134 going into the weekend on the tough Copperhead course at Innisbrook.

The Irishman has not won a sanctioned tournament since his PGA Championship victory at Oakland Hills in August 2008. Jim Furyk, whose last victory against a full field came in the 2007 Canadian Open, was atop the leaderboard with Harrington until missing a 6-foot par putt on the final hole. It wasn’t enough to take away from an otherwise solid round of 68 to put him one shot behind. Also at 7 under were Carl Pettersson (68), a past winner at

Innisbrook; Bubba Watson, who missed a 4-foot birdie putt on his final hole and had 65; and defending champion Retief Goosen after a 68.

TROPHEE HASSAN II RABAT, Morocco — Wales’ Rhys Davies shot a bogey-free 8-under 64 to take a two-shot lead at 13 under in the Trophee Hassan II. Davies played Royal Golf Dar Es Salam’s shorter Blue Course after opening with a 68 on Thursday on the Red Course.

CONCORD – Former East Davidson star Chad Wilfong and High Point Central standout Drew Weaver will be hoping to climb the leaderboard today and earn larger chunks of the $200,000 purse when the final round of the Cabarrus Classic concludes at Cabarrus Country Club. The eGolf Tour professional event is led by Nationwide Tour player and three-time eGolf winner David Robinson, whose third-round 70 gave him

an 11-under total through three rounds and a oneshot lead over two-time Nationwide winner Joe Daley and Ryan Carter. Wilfong shot his third straight round of 71 for a 3-under total good for a 30th-place tie. Weaver, meanwhile, carded a 74 on Friday to fall to 36th place in a tie at 2-under. Weaver opened with a 67 before shooting 73 Thursday to make his first cut in three eTour starts this year. The next eTour stop opens Wednesday in Blythewood, S.C.

BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) — Brad Keselowski wants NASCAR to explain the limits on the “boys, have at it� policy series officials are applying this season to self-policing between drivers. Keselowski said Friday he plans to ask NASCAR for a definition when he meets with series officials, Carl Edwards and their respective owners at Bristol Motor Speedway. The meeting, tentatively scheduled for Saturday, was called to discuss Edwards’ intentional accident with Keselowski two weeks ago at Atlanta. Keselowski’s car went airborne after the contact, and Edwards’ was placed on probation for three races for actions some felt warranted a suspension.

EU panel wants European loans for Greece BRUSSELS (AP) – The European Commission urged Germany and other eurozone governments Friday to put up a package of government-togovernment loans to ease Greece’s financial plight and end weeks of financial turmoil and speculation. European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso said European aid is necessary because “we cannot prolong any further the current situation.” He spoke of “coordinated bilateral loans” that would



Google likely to win EU battle over ads LONDON – Google looks likely to win a European high court battle over how it uses keywords in advertising – but experts say the case is unlikely to settle the issue. Brand owners have been taking Google Inc. and its rival Yahoo Inc. to court for years over the way they run their ad businesses. The search engines have run into trouble by allowing advertisers to use keywords associated with their rivals’ brand names.

Pay for Travelers Cos. CEO rises 20 percent NEW YORK – Travelers Cos. gave its CEO a pay package worth $20.1 million last year, a 20 percent raise over his 2008 pay as the property and casualty insurer benefited from a conservative investment approach. Over half Jay Fishman’s pay package came from restricted stock and stock options, which totaled $10.9 million, compared to $10.2 million the previous year, according to an Associated Press analysis of a company filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Dollar gains on Greek financial troubles NEW YORK – The dollar climbed Friday as worries over who would provide aid for Greece and other debt-laden European countries sent investors scurrying for the safety of the U.S. currency. The 16-nation euro dropped to $1.3536 in late trading in New York from $1.3621 late Thursday. Meanwhile, the British pound tumbled to $1.5020 from $1.5252, and the dollar rose to 90.49 Japanese yen from 90.31 yen. The dollar also rose to 1.0598 Swiss francs from 1.0573 francs and climbed to 1.0161 Canadian dollars from 1.0129 Canadian dollars. ENTERPRISE NEWS SERVICE REPORTS


not have to be paid out immediately. Even as a standby gesture, Barroso said, the availability of aid from Greece’s partners would show financial markets that EU nations are united to defend their single currency and the stability of the eurozone, the area of 16 EU nations that share the euro as their currency. Speaking to reporters, Barroso urged EU leaders to agree on “coordinated bilateral loans” at a two-day summit opening Thursday in Brussels.

He did not elaborate on loan or participation conditions or other details. In Athens, Greek government spokesman George Petalotis called Barroso’s appeal a “positive development.” “We would like a clear declaration of this so that we can borrow money at a reasonable rate,” Petalotis told The Associated Press in Athens. EU sources have estimated that Greece needs a financial injection of about 20 billion euros ($27 billion).

FDIC chief: Banking bill needs tweaks WASHINGTON (AP) – The head of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. said Friday loopholes need to be filled in new Senate legislation to ensure an end to the disastrous “too-big-to-fail” approach that brought the government rushing in to bail out big banks in the financial crisis. FDIC Chairman Sheila Bair said her agency has concerns about parts of the Senate bill unveiled this week, which “seem to allow the potential for backdoor bailouts” through the powers of the Federal Reserve. The bill would create a powerful Financial Stability Oversight Council to monitor the health of the financial sector and push for the breakup of large complex firms to prevent them from becoming “too big to fail.” The nine-member council, which would include the FDIC, the Trea-

sury Department, the Fed and other agencies, could place big, interconnected financial institutions under the Fed’s supervision. The legislation would give the Fed new powers to oversee nonbank financial firms so big and interconnected that their failure could threaten the economy. “We will work closely with the Senate to make sure there are no loopholes around the carefully crafted resolution procedures,” Bair said in an address to a convention of the Independent Community Bankers of America in Orlando, Fla. “If the Congress accomplishes anything this year, it should be to clearly and completely end too big to fail,” Bair said. “Never again should taxpayers be asked to bail out a failing financial firm. It’s time that the big players understand that they sink or swim on their own.”

Boeing boosts production of 747, 777 NEW YORK (AP) – Boeing Co. will speed up production plans for its 777 and 747 models in anticipation of greater demand from commercial airlines. Both are wide-body planes capable of carrying more than 300 passengers and flying longer routes. Several Asian airlines have ordered the planes, which are also more fuel-efficient than other aircraft models. Asian and Latin American carriers have led the way for a surprisingly strong recovery, while improvement at U.S. carriers has lagged. The industry’s leading trade group, the Inter-

national Air Transport Association, cut its 2010 loss forecast in half for global airlines to $2.8 billion. The group also lowered its 2009 loss estimate to $9.4 billion from $11 billion because of the yearend rally. Many airlines across the globe reported losses in 2009 as travel demand slumped. Boeing, the world’s second-largest aircraft maker behind Airbus, said Friday that it sees the airline industry recovering this year, followed by a return to profitability in 2011. That should lead to demand for new aircraft in 2012 and beyond, the company said.

Greece’s debt causes stocks to fall NEW YORK (AP) – Stocks halted their steady climb Friday after renewed concerns about Greece’s ability to pay its debts left investors questioning a global economic recovery. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 37 points after advancing for eight straight days. Broader indexes also fell. Major indexes posted gains for the week. Greece said it might need to turn to the International Monetary Fund for support if European leaders can’t agree on a bailout plan next week. Worries about the country’s ability to handle its massive debt load have set off periodic bouts of stock selling in the U.S. and overseas over the past two months. Investors also were cautious after India’s central bank raised interest rates to combat rising prices. That prompted concern that central banks in other countries would follow suit. Reports in the U.S. during the week signaled that inflation is minimal. The news out of Greece and India chilled an advance in U.S. stocks that grew out of rising optimism about a recovery. “The economic data so far continues to be friendly, but there are a lot of concerns out there,” said Peter Cardillo, chief market economist at the brokerage Avalon Partners Inc. in New York.

Appeals court rules bank loans can be disclosed NEW YORK (AP) – A federal appeals court ruled Friday that the Federal Reserve can reveal information to news agencies seeking to learn about loans that private banks received from the 12 Federal Reserve Banks as they used government bailout money to survive the banking crisis. The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan said in two separate opinions that the information is not automatically exempt from news organizations’ Freedom of Information requests. Cases were brought by News Corp.’s Fox News Network LLC and Bloomberg LP. Fox and Bloomberg had requested details about loans that private banks received in 2007 or 2008, and the collateral the banks provided. Lower court judges had ruled separate ways on the issue. In the Fox case, a three-judge panel concluded that records of the Federal Reserve Banks are records of the Federal Reserve board and must be searched to satisfy FOIA requests even though the records of the 12 regional banks do not automatically become records of the board. Fox in November 2008 had sought the names of all private banks that received loans from August 2007 to November 2008, along with the collateral they provided.

Strike planned as talks between BA, union collapse LONDON (AP) – A threeday strike by British Airways cabin crew affecting thousands of travelers is going ahead today after last-ditch talks between the airline’s management and union leaders collapsed. The walkout has forced BA to cancel thousands of flights, but it still hopes to operate around 65 percent of its international schedule over the period. The Unite union has gathered some support from unions in the United States, Germany and Spain for its action – taken to protest a

pay freeze and changes to working conditions – but the other unions have so far stopped short of pledging direct action that would affect BA’s ability to refuel and service its planes. A total of 1,100 flights out of the 1,950 flights scheduled to operate during the walkout will be canceled, but the airline has leased planes and crew from rival carriers to take up some of the shortfall. At its Heathrow base, more than 60 percent of long-haul flights will operate, but only 30 percent of

Health care battle tilts Obama’s way WASHINGTON (AP) – One by one, Democratic fence-sitters began choosing sides Friday, and the long, turbulent struggle over landmark health care legislation tilted unmistakably in President Barack Obama’s direction. In full campaign mode, his voice rising, the president all but claimed victory, declaring to a cheering audience in Virginia, “We are going to fix health care in America.� Obama With the showdown vote set for Sunday in the House, Obama decided to make one final, personal appeal to rankand-file Democrats, arranging a Saturday visit to the Capitol. Republicans, unanimous in opposition to the bill, complained anew about its cost and reach.

Grand Sport returns to Corvette line ANN M. JOB THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


Already bargain priced for the handling, power and iconic status it delivers, the Chevrolet Corvette ratchets up its valuefor-the-dollar appeal this year with a new Grand Sport model. The first Corvette with the Grand Sport name since 1996, the new model slots below the pricey Corvette Z06, which has a starting price tag of more than $75,000. The Grand Sport, in comparison, has a starting manufacturer’s suggested retail price, with destination charge, of $55,720 for a coupe and $59,530 for a convertible with at least 430 horsepower. This is $5,840 more than a base Corvette coupe and $5,000 more than a base Corvette convertible. But the Grand Sport, which borrows many body panels from the Z06 and adds a taller spoiler and wider tires than the base Corvette has, looks a lot like a sinister, 505horsepower Z06 on the outside. The Grand Sport also has an advanced suspension because it mixes in some suspension parts from the much-revered Z06. Brakes are updated


The 2010 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport is a showy two-seater with a noteworthy – even memorable – ride. from the base Corvette for solid performance, and buyers can add Grand Sport fender stripes as an option. The result is an eyecatching, showy twoseater with a noteworthy – even memorable – ride. As for competitors, the Corvette Grand Sport, which is something of a mid-range Corvette in the lineup, costs at least $23,000 less than compa-

rable imported sports coupes. The 2010 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe with 345horsepower, six-cylinder and manual transmission starts at $78,750. A 2010 Nissan GT-R with 485horsepower, twin-turbo V-6 and automatic transmission with manual shift mode starts at $81,790. Yes, the Grand Sport has the base Corvette engine – a 6.2-liter, overhead valve

V-8 with 430 horsepower with standard exhaust system and 436 horses when a dual exhaust system is added as an option. But the standard six-speed manual has different gearing than a base Corvette for improved response. And car enthusiast magazines have clocked the new Grand Sport, which generates up to 428 footpounds of torque at 4,600 rpm, traveling from zero

to 60 miles an hour in 3.9 seconds to 4.1 seconds. The test Corvette Grand Sport Coupe had me convinced the first time I floored the accelerator and felt the rush of power. The V-8 engine roar – the test car came with optional dual exhaust that didn’t muzzle the sounds – added to the sensation of raw, ready power. The Corvette wasn’t just strong on straightaways,

Until Tax Credit Expires! Must have a signed contract by April 30, 2010 to qualify.


Expect the momentum of home sales to continue


hew! After four years of declining home sales, the numbers appear to be finally turning back upward, with closed sales and pending contracts at above-normal increases. In particular, first-time buyers helped buoy the market by taking advantage of low prices and interest rates, as well as the $8,000 tax credit offered by the federal government. At least for now, home prices remain attractively low, and mortgage payments as they relate to income are very comfortable.

All the information seems to point to the fact that home prices have actually overcorrected downward. What does that mean? REAL ESTATE It indicates that many markets may Ken experience a price Wall “snap back,” with ■■■ values increasing a lot more than the historical average of 4 percent appreciation per year. Some factors may continue to

make buyers cautious, mostly declines in retirement savings and a lukewarm economic recovery with unemployment hovering around 10 percent nationally. Now is not the time to hesitate, however, as mortgage interest rates are expected to rise in 2010. We can expect the momentum of home sales to continue, especially with the extension of the tax credit through April and the fact that qualification is no longer limited to just first-time buyers. Prices and interest rates will rise this

year, so buyer confidence should be at an all-time high. The pressure cooker of pent-up demand is about to blow its top.

5 states rush plans for $1.5B in housing funds PHOENIX (AP) – The five states hardest hit by the foreclosure crisis have been given only weeks to plan how to spend $1.5 billion in federal funding announced by the Obama administration last month. Guidelines issued under the U.S. Treasury Department’s

Fund for Hardest Hit Housing Markets on March 5 gave housing finance agencies in California, Arizona, Florida, Nevada and Michigan just six weeks to come up with plans on how to spend their share of the money. The rush could be problematic for the states, especially because

Treasury is seeking “innovative” measures to help families facing foreclosure. But some experts have been urging the administration to try the approach, believing it will be helpful and that it can be done quickly. “This is long overdue, allowing the use of more innovative

techniques,” said Ken Rosen, a real estate professor at University of California at Berkeley’s Hass School of Business. The guidelines give wide leeway to the state Housing Finance Agencies charged with doling out the money to design programs tailored to their re-

gion’s circumstance. The money can be spent, for example, to help families who can’t pay their mortgages because of job losses, unable to refinance because plunging home values have left them “underwater,” or to give relief from second mortgage payments.



Overcome procrastination on the sale of your home T

hree months ago, a special education teacher in her 20s married a store manager of the same age. Soon after, the couple bought a pleasant suburban house with four spacious bedrooms and an imposing family room fireplace. But there’s a costly catch to this otherwise happy tale: The teacher is procrastinating on the sale of her apartment she bought before meeting her husband. “And it’s costing her an extra $900 a month to make that extra mortgage payment,” says Sid Davis, the real estate broker who’s listed the unit. After much urging from Davis, the teacher cleared out the closets in her apartment, but “her carpets should all be cleaned and her half-finished painting projects should be completed,” adds Davis, the author of “A Survival Guide to Selling a Home.” He has shown the teacher’s apartment to more than a dozen prospective

buyers with no success. So why does the teacher continue to fail to finish the improvements – despite her obvious financial interest in a sale? “Nearly always, procrastination has only one SMART MOVES element and that’s fear,” says Gloria Arenson, a Ellen psychotherapist and auMartin thor of “EFT for Procras■■■ tination.” (EFT stands for “Emotional Freedom Techniques.”) Arenson says that while the most common fear that stops people is fear of failure, a less common explanation is the fear of success. For example, the teacher might have an unconscious sense that she’s not entitled to a profit on her sale. Besides fear, many people procrastinate due to a resistance to authority

and the notion that they should do what people tell them, says Neil Fiore, a psychologist and author of “The Now Habit: A Strategic Program for Overcoming Procrastination and Enjoying Guilt-Free Play.” Once you’ve identified the likely cause of your procrastination, experts in the field suggest you consider several coping strategies. Here are somel pointers: • Break down your project into manageable action steps. A home sale involves many steps. Before putting a home on the market, people must interview real estate agents, set a selling price, attend to landscaping issues, clear through clutter and line up contractors. “Such a big project can seem especially daunting to procrastinators who are perfectionists,” says Lenora M. Yuen, co-author of “Procrastination: Why You Do it, What to Do About it Now.”

Yuen urges procrastinators to list all the small steps they expect the homeselling process to involve and then proceed incrementally, dealing with setbacks and mistakes as they arise. • Consider shutting off potential distractions in your environment. As Fiore says, people are spending an increasing amount of time with electronic devices that can become a diversion from the hard work involved in a major project. They’re spending more time on the Internet and calling or texting from their cell phones. This is on top of all their TV watching. So when attempting to concentrate on your home sale, Fiore suggests you temporarily disable any electronic devices that could sidetrack you. • Seek help in purging your place of excess belongings. • Pick a real estate agent to help you move forward to your selling goal.
