I-85 span work could begin soon BY PAUL B. JOHNSON ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER
DAVIDSON COUNTY – Motorists traveling along Interstate 85 over the Yadkin River should begin to see signs this summer of a project to replace the highway bridge dating from the era of President Dwight Eisenhower. Crews for the N.C. Department of Transportation should begin the three-year project to replace the I-85 bridge at the Davidson-Rowan County line by the middle to late
summer, said Pat Ivey, division engineer out of the DOT office in Winston-Salem. The DOT expects to accept bids from contractors and bridge engineering designers in early April. “The plan would be to award the design-build project in late April. We’ve been working on these plans for quite some time. So we’ve already gotten our contractors narrowed down,” Ivey said. This summer, the first visible signs of the project that motorists should no-

The Yadkin River bridge replacement The Interstate 85 bridge replacement over the Yadkin River will include upgrading several miles of the highway in Davidson and Rowan counties, including widening a 3-mile portion in northern Rowan County from four to eight lanes, realigning the roadway to eliminate sharp curves and improving interchanges. The estimated project cost is $180 million. The project is expected to take three years to complete. I-85 is the most direct and heavily traveled route between Richmond and Atlanta. The portion of interstate included in the project currently carries nearly 70,000 vehicles per day. Daily traffic counts are projected to increase to 144,000 by 2030. Commercial trucks represent about 26 percent of the traffic along this stretch. The original Yadkin River bridge was constructed in 1955. The span is the only interstate crossing of the Yadkin River between Charlotte and Greensboro. The bridge has been deemed in poor condition and classified as structurally deficient , meaning it has elements that need to be monitored and/or repaired. The bridge also is classified as functionally obsolete, meaning an outdated design for current traffic loads. The span has remained in operation through ongoing maintenance work. Source: N.C. Department of Transportation
tice along I-85 near the river will be clearing for the
new section of interstate leading up to the site of the new bridge. The new span will be built just to the east of the existing bridge, and Ivey said the DOT’s goal during the work is to avoid or strictly curtail any need for detours. “The first thing they (motorists) are going to see is we’ll be doing significant clearing where the relocation of the interstate will be. Then you will be able to see the construction of the new bridge while it’s going on,” he said. The DOT’s goal in three years is to have a seamless transition to the new part

DAVIDSON COUNTY – State leaders and area elected officials have wanted for years to find a funding route to replace the out-of-date, four-lane Yadkin River bridge, which opened in the SONNY HEDGECOCK | HPE mid-1950s as the nation’s Traffic on Interstate 85 crosses the Yadkin River at the Davidson-Rowan county line. interstate system was being developed.

of I-85 and new bridge, Ivey said. The number of workers at peak times constructing the bridge will depend on the general contractors and subcontractors hired for the work and what staff they need, Ivey said. “But it’s going to be a significant project, no doubt about that,” he said. State officials estimated the bridge replacement could create or sustain 7,000 jobs, but that estimate was based on a 6.8-mile project, not the compacted version planned now.
TRINITY – Some Trinity truckers who requested permits to park a rig on their own property may not be eligible to get them. City Manager Ann Bailie said that the Trinity City Council tentatively decided during a specialcalled meeting Thursday to only allow the owner and operator of trucks to park on their own property. Trinity officials have had 46 truckers request permits from the city, but haven’t been able to issue them because the City Council has yet to finalize a trucking ordinance. City staff are unsure how many will not qualify for a permit because they didn’t know
The federal stimulus finally provided a revenue stream for the bridge replacement, though not in the way that state and area leaders wanted. Last month, the administration of President Barack Obama selected the Yadkin River bridge replacement as the lone project in North Carolina

Under the proposal, permits will be issued for one year and must be renewed annually.

Truckers in limbo; public hearing set that residents had to own their trucks to park a rig at their residence. Under direction from the City Council, truckers were given from Feb. 16 to March 18 to request a permit from the city. Those truckers would be grandfathered, but tractor-trailers would be phased out after the ownership of property changes hands. In February, the City Council voted 6-2 to allow truck drivers to park only one rig on their own property. This week, the City Council informally agreed to make a change that will allow truckers to park their rig and trailer on their property, if they had it on their land prior to March 18.

Workers try to save papers from NC courthouse fire
Scooter accident kills pregnant woman, child ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT
HIGH POINT – A woman and her infant died Saturday after a scooter accident on Triangle Lake Road. At 4:19 p.m., High Point police officers responded to the 3000 block of Triangle Lake Road in reference to a serious traffic collision. When officers arrived, they determined a scooter had run off the road, colliding with a culvert. The driver and passenger were ejected. The driver, Jerry Lee Phillips, 57, of 1711 Baker
Road, High Point, received serious injuries and was transported to High Point Regional Hospital. Phillips’ condition was unknown as of press time Saturday night. The passenger, Crystal Marie Grimes, 30, also was seriously injured and taken to High Point Regional Hospital, where she succumbed to her injuries. Grimes also was 25 weeks pregnant, police said. The baby was delivered at the hospital, but later died due to injuries received in the collision.
PITTSBORO (AP) – Now that it appears the structure of a 129-year-old North Carolina courthouse may be saved, officials are turning toward trying to save documents and artifacts inside the building. There were hundreds of criminal case files in the district attorney’s firstfloor office at the Chatham County courthouse and a museum had photographs, books and historic county records, according to multiple media outlets. “What I’ve said all day long is that since no one was hurt, we get to mourn the loss of the courthouse and the loss of our things. It’s sad, but overall I’m fairly happy. The fire was moving a lot quicker than anybody realized. We were lucky that everyone got out of the courthouse when we did,” District Attorney Jim Woodall said. The fire started Thurs-
Police said Phillips was admitted to the hospital and charged with driving while impaired. Traffic investigators had been in contact Saturday with the District Attorney’s Office and additional charges are expected within the next few days, according to a High Point police press release. The accident is still under investigation and investigators are asking that anyone with information call High Point Crimestoppers at 889-4000 or Lt. Barry Roberts at 887-7969.
day and raged for hours. The courthouse’s clock tower fell and the upper floor collapsed, but fire officials said the debris may have protected documents and artifacts on the lower floors from fire, water and smoke damage. Contractors were renovating part of the courthouse, but investigators have yet to determine a cause for the fire. An engineer surveying the damage said the building’s structure wasn’t hurt as bad as it first appeared. “We’re hopeful we can save the walls,” said Sally Kost, chairwoman of the Chatham County Board of Commissioners. While the engineer looked over the courthouse’s framework, others were worried about what was inside. Woodall walked into an office building across from
the courthouse Friday morning with just a box of supplies, setting it down on a table. “Welcome to the Chatham County District Attorney’s Office,” Woodall said. A day earlier when the fire alarm sounded, Woodall’s employees thought it was a minor blaze. They left behind their purses, car keys, cell phones and other items. “I had four or five flash drives that contained everything that was important to me, but they’re all in my desk drawer,” Woodall said. Workers spent Friday installing computer systems and phone lines in the new temporary offices for the district attorney. State computers have basic information on cases, but items like witness lists, warrants, and interviews are in files in the rubble of the courthouse.

Garner mayor takes on new fight – Parkinson’s GARNER (AP) – Eighteen months ago, Mayor Ronnie Williams was visiting Vandora Springs Elementary School when a second-grader asked a question that convinced him to finally confront what he had long suspected. “She said, ‘Mr. Mayor, why are you shaking?’ ” Williams recalled. “So I decided then I better go see a doctor.” Two months later, Williams, 61, was diagnosed
with Parkinson’s disease. The symptoms of the brain disorder had already started to appear: Williams shuffled his feet when he walked, and his hands trembled. At first, Williams said he had a “pity party.” “Why me, Lord?” he asked. But Williams, a town leader for more than two decades, said that pity party didn’t last long. Instead, he turned to prayer. And this mayor, who
under a segment of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act targeted toward big-ticket roadway projects. State officials from Gov. Beverly Perdue to mayors and transportation planners in the Triad lobbied the White House for full funding, which would have totaled more than $300 million. Instead, the Obama administration announced a month ago that the state would receive $10 million in a direct stimulus grant and access to federal bond money that North Carolina would have to pay back during a 12-year period. The decision by the White House prompted the DOT to go with an alternative plan that had been developed in case there was partial funding of the project. The replacement of the bridge now will involve widening three miles of I-85 in northern Rowan County approaching the river.

Williams is often the voice of Garner, a bluecollar community in southeast Wake. When the ConAgra Foods plant exploded last summer, killing four workers and injuring dozens more, Williams was front and center. His face was splashed across television screens for days.

The current price tag for the project is $180 million. The funding, though, doesn’t include money for a widened 3mile section of I-85 in southern Davidson County from N.C. 150 to the split at Interstate 85 Business Loop, said Pat Ivey, division engineer out of the DOT office in Winston-Salem. “We’ve got it designed to where we’re going to build this project and tie it into that existing four-lane section (in Davidson County). We’re building a new interchange for Highway 150 just north of the bridge. The full eight lanes will come up to that interchange. There, once you pass that new interchange, it’s where it narrows down to four lanes,” he said. An additional $150 million is needed to widen the section of I-85 from the N.C. 150 interchange to the I-85 Business Loop split, he said.

Iraq winner eyes negotiations as sniper kills supporter BAGHDAD (AP) â€“ The secular challenger who stunned Iraq with his razor-thin parliamentary election win turned his attention to negotiations over a future government Saturday even as supporters of the prime minister vowed to fight the results. Ayad Allawiâ€™s two-seat win was hailed as a startling comeback for a politician who just four years ago was shunned as a U.S.backed puppet. Prime Minister Nouri al-Malikiâ€™s bloc has demanded a recount, claiming fraud. The Shiite leader, who angrily denounced the results after their release on Friday, did not appear in public on Saturday, but his supporters promised a fight

to keep him in his post. â€œThere are two options in front of us. The first, to continue the challenge in a legal and constitutional way and the second is to continue demanding the manual recount,â€? adviser Sami al-Askari Allawi said. In a worrying sign of the sectarian tensions the elections have stirred up, a Sunni leader in a Baghdad neighborhood who on Friday night celebrated Allawiâ€™s win by passing out candy to wellwishers was killed by a sniper Saturday morning, police and hospital officials said.

Supporters crowd at the â€œShowdown in Searchlightâ€? rally in Searchlight, Nev., Saturday.
Palin speaks to tea party rally in Sen. Reidâ€™s hometown SEARCHLIGHT, Nev. (AP) â€“ Sarah Palin told thousands of tea party activists assembled in the dusty Nevada desert Saturday that Sen. Harry Reid will have to explain his votes when he comes back to his hometown to campaign. She told the cheering crowd that Reid, fighting for re-election, is â€œgambling away our future.â€? â€œSomeone needs to tell him, this is not a crapshoot,â€? Palin said. About 7,000 people streamed into tiny Searchlight, a former mining town
60 miles south of Las Vegas, bringing American flags, â€œDonâ€™t Tread on Meâ€? signs and outspoken anger toward Reid, President Barack Obama and the health care overhaul. The Searchlight native responded with sarcasm to the large crowd gathered in the town of about 1,000 he grew up in. â€œIâ€™m happy so many people came to see my hometown of Searchlight and spend their out-of-state money, especially in these tough economic times,â€? Reid said Saturday in a statement.
Obama announces 15 recess appointments WASHINGTON (AP) â€“ Fed up with waiting, President Barack Obama announced Saturday he would bypass a vacationing Senate and name 15 people to key administration jobs, wielding for the first time the blunt political tool known as the recess appointment. The move is sure to deepen the divide between Obama and Senate Republicans following a fight over health care. He revealed his move by blistering Republicans, accusing them of holding up nominees for months to try to score a political advantage on him. Meanwhile, an administration official confirmed Obama intends to nominate Massachusetts pediatrician Donald Berwick, known for his work to improve patient care, to oversee Medicare and Medicaid.

Breast Enlargement Now Less Painful and A Great Time of Year To Do It Breast augmentation has, again, become one of the most popular cosmetic procedures. The silicon gel breast implant â€œďŹ ascoâ€? has faded (where it belongs,) and besides, we use saline implants most of the time anyway. Letâ€™s talk about breast enlargement. When I am seeing a patient thinking of enlarging her breasts, the biggest reason she hasnâ€™t already had the operation is usually the fear of pain. Now, pain is always an important reason. But, we have a great gadget to help with pain. The ON-Q Pain pump has been a true blessing for many of the painful operations we do. For instance, if you are considering a tummy tuck, we use it here too. This pump is like blowing up a balloon, except we use numbing medications (like
lidocaine which a dentist might use to numb your teeth.) The numbing ďŹ‚uid is slowly passed through a small tube that we insert next to your breast implant. The implant is bathed in the lidocaine for TWO DAYS. WOW! The worst of the pain occurs in the ďŹ rst two days, so you get help during the most painful time. We still give you narcotics, but narcotics sometime have side effects like nausea and constipation that obviously are less if you need less, and use less. Fantastic. So, what are you waiting for? Bathing suit season is coming soon. Having your surgery now is a good idea. The reason is that we are probably going to place the implant under the pectoralis (chest-come on, you can learn some anatomy too)
muscle. The thing about putting implants there is that it takes time for the pectoralis to stretch out. We need this stretching over weeks to months to allow the implant to lower itself into a correct position behind your breast. OK, whatâ€™s your excuse now? We can help you with the pain, and NOW is a great time to have breast augmentation. Get the body balance you want. I tell my patients we are in the Happy Business. And itâ€™s true. Our breast enlargement patients are some of our happiest! Virgil V. Willard, II, MD

Ex-Scientology lawsuits reveal elite Sea Org group SAN JACINTO, Calif. (AP) â€“ At the edge of arid foothills far outside Los Angeles, hundreds of Scientology followers live on a gated, 500-acre campus and work long hours for almost no pay reproducing the works of founder L. Ron Hubbard and creating the churchâ€™s teaching and promotional materials. The church says its 5,000 socalled Sea Organization members are religious devotees akin to monks who are exempt from wage requirements and overtime. But two lawsuits filed by two former Sea Org members, AP as they are known, allege the Church of Scientology spokesman Tommy Davis (left), Cathy Fraser (center), director of public affairs, and workers are little more than Jennifer Linson, senior executive, are shown at The Church of Scientologyâ€™s Golden Era Productions as they slave laborers, forced to work 100-hour weeks for pennies and comment on lawsuits by former so-called Sea Organization members, March 12, in San Jacinto, Calif.
threatened with manual labor if they cause trouble. Marc Headley and his wife, Claire, are seeking back pay and overtime that could add up to $1 million each, according to their attorney, Barry Van Sickle. Experts say the plaintiffs face an uphill battle; one similar lawsuit in state court has already been dismissed, although the plaintiff plans to appeal. The dispute has focused unwelcome attention on the Sea Org, which operates as a nerve center for the churchâ€™s important business. The members are Scientologyâ€™s most devoted followers: they sign a billion-year pledge, vow not to have children and live and work communally.
