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 The bridge also is classified as functionally obsolete, meaning an outdated design for current traffic loads.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.


DOT uses Plan B


Garner Mayor Ronnie Williams talks on his mobile phone while walking through a neighborhood in Garner. Williams walks three or four miles every day and often takes phone calls during his walks to keep up with business. Williams is now battling Parkinson’s disease.


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&#x20AC;&#x201C; 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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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

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&#x20AC;&#x2122;s win by passing out candy to wellwishers was killed by a sniper Saturday morning, police and hospital officials said.

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&#x20AC;&#x153;ďŹ ascoâ&#x20AC;? has faded (where it belongs,) and besides, we use saline implants most of the time anyway. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s talk about breast enlargement. When I am seeing a patient thinking of enlarging her breasts, the biggest reason she hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x201A;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x201C; 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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important business. The members are Scientologyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most devoted followers: they sign a billion-year pledge, vow not to have children and live and work communally.

Davidson approves incentives package BY DARRICK IGNASIAK ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

taxes. The sales are part of a larger $30 million plan county officials approved late last year to upgrade some properties and to dispose of others. The High Point county courthouse building will get a $468,626 renovation after county administrative offices move to the Centennial Center building at 325 E. Russell St. The building also will house Department of Social Services offices. After the moves, there will be more courthouse space for office expansions and meeting rooms. Most of the improvement money comes from bond proceeds and other construction funds. Money for the High Point courthouse renovation was leftover from a $5.1 million new Greensboro courthouse upgrade project. In Greensboro, the register of deeds offices will move from the new courthouse to the countyowned BB&T building at Market and Greene streets, partly to eliminate security searches. The building also will house the county’s Information Services. Earlier this year, commissioners approved an additional $5 million in a refinancing package for renovating the building to house the additional agency.

DAVIDSON COUNTY – The Davidson County Board of Commissioners last week approved an incentives package for a company that could bring 150 jobs to Lexington. Steve Googe, executive director of the Davidson County Economic Development Commission, said commissioners agreed to give Project Combined $5,691 annually for 12 years, with Lexington also offering a similar incentives package. The company would invest $3 million in the new plant, machinery and equipment and provide 150 jobs in the first 36 months of operation. Googe said the Lexington City Council and Davidson County commissioners also have agreed to appropriate about $68,000 each to purchase 17.63 acres at 1350 W. Holly Grove Road. Both will enter into a lease purchase agreement with Project Combined for 12 years. Googe would not release the name of the company this week, but said an announcement could be forthcoming in the next month. “It’s a manufacturing business,” Googe said. “... This company is going to have a lot of truck traffic ... They probably will have somewhere between 100 and 200 trailers that would be stored at one time on site and this additional acreage that we are purchasing is going to accommodate truck traffic.” Googe said the company’s wages would be at the county average. He said the company is based out of state, but has ties in North Carolina. “I think the first time (Project Combined) came in was somewhere around 18 months or two years ago, but for the last six months, we have been working with them on a weekly basis,” he said. | 888-3626 | 888-3657

Mega sale County seeks millions for surplus properties BY DAVID NIVENS ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – For Sale: The Evergreens Senior Health Care property at 206 Greensboro Road; 66,000 square feet of building space on 21 acres; asking price, $3.1 million. Guilford County government has entered the real estate market with several properties valued at millions of dollars. The Evergreens site in High Point and a sister site on W. Wendover Ave. in Greensboro became available when the managing residential health care providers decided to move their clients to new sites. The county has been their landlord. David Grantham, county property management director, has called the W. Wendover Ave. site “prime real estate.” Property along the commercial strip has sold for about $200,000 an acre. “It could bring in some serious money,” Grantham has said several times. Camden Place in Greensboro is one of three new, state-of-theart facilities that will replace the Evergreens properties. Shannon Gray in Jamestown is opening to replace the High Point facility.

DSS considers pilot project ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

GUILFORD COUNTY – County officials took their first look this week at a $60,000 proposal aimed at boosting the number of foster parents. If HR Group Inc. of Greensboro wins the county contract for the pilot project, analysts would look at the agency’s services and launch a media campaign to recruit parents to a foster parent training program. Department of Social Services Director Robert Williams said the pilot could test whether the agency should hire private vendors to provide some services.


Teens: Only about 10 percent of foster care teens live in traditional homes. The remainder live in group homes.

“With a contract, you pay only for services provided,” Williams told the Social Services Board. “That can save the county money and maintain or increase our service levels. There is not enough money for us to continue doing business as usual.”

The board could approve the contract in the next few weeks. The agency’s successful foster care program has won recognition for reducing the number of children in DSS custody. The number declined from 575 in May in 2005 to 390 in February. HR Group Inc. would be required to promote the agency’s emphasis to place troubled children with family members if possible and to address the racial disparities in foster care. Williams and Myra Thompson, the agency’s financial director, said agency leaders are looking at ways to save money.

“As we retool, we may have to contract out some services,” Williams said. “Other states have done this.” County leaders want to hold the county’s contribution to DSS at $19 million, Thompson said. In addition to two jobs eliminated in foster care, 11 other jobs in the Work First program will be eliminated, Thompson said. But the agency also has 25 vacancies, many of them in the stressed food stamp and Medicaid programs. “It will be possible for workers to stay at DSS if they want to,” Williams said.

Durham faces more school cuts MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

DURHAM – This year’s budget cuts were pretty bad at the Durham School of the Arts. They may be worse in the coming year. “The cuts this year, we’re struggling with this,” said DSA Principal David Hawks during Thursday’s school board meeting. “We’re dismembering a lot of public education.” More than 200 Durham teachers may be without a job this fall as the district tries to make up an anticipated $20 million short-

fall. The job cuts are part of a proposal that would eliminate a total of 292 positions, trimming the district’s operating expenses more than $23 million. The school administration already has asked its departments and schools to trim their spending by 10 percent. So the school board wants DPS to be exempt from the additional 3 percent budget reductions mandated by the county for all departments. That 3 percent means $3 million for schools and filters down to possibly laying off 15 teachers at DSA.

Vatican in crisis Clergy abuse threatens to tarnish pope’s legacy



Yesterday’s Bible question: What people did the Lord call “The apple of his eye.”? Answer to yesterday’s question: Israel (Zechariah 2:8) Today’s Bible question: Is this verse found in the Old or New Testament: “Thou hast ascended on high, thou hast led captivity captive: thou hast received gifts for men: yea, for the rebellious also, that the Lord God might dwell among them.”? BIBLE QUIZ is provided by Hugh B. Brittain of Shelby.

VATICAN CITY (AP) – The Vatican is facing one of its gravest crises of modern times as sex abuse scandals move ever closer to Pope Benedict XVI – threatening not FILE | AP only his own legacy but In this 2003 file photo, the late Pope John Paul II (right) greets then Cardinal Joseph Ratzalso that of his revered inger, now Pope Benedict XVI, during the traditional exchange of Christmas greetings at predecessor. the Vatican. The Vatican is facing one of its gravest crises of modern times. Benedict took a much harder stance on sex abuse than John Paul II when he assumed the papacy five years ago, disciplining a senior cleric championed by the Polish pontiff and defrocking others under a new policy of zero tolerance. But the impression remains of a woefully slowfooted church and of a pope who bears responsibility for allowing pedophile priests to keep their parishes. In an editorial on Friday, the National Catholic Reporter in the United States called on Benedict to answer questions about his role “in the mismanagement” of sex abuse cases. Meanwhile, the Vatican said Saturday that recent attacks on the church over its handling of clerical sex abuse cases have been harmful, but insisted the pope’s authority had not been weakened.


Church, deaf students square off on Italian TV ROME (AP) – Three deaf men who say they were repeatedly sodomized and abused by priests as children confronted the church diocese Friday about why it hadn’t punished their abusers, saying they want justice. The three men, first interviewed last year by The Associated Press, appeared on a prime-time talk show on Italy’s state-run RAI television, squaring off with the spokesman of the Verona diocese amid a swirling global sex abuse scandal that has inched closer to Pope Benedict XVI. The former students haven’t gone to the police because the 10-year statute of limitations expired. They have asked the priests in question to waive the statute of limitations so a case can be opened, but to date none of them have.

Changing registration to “Unaffiliated” is simple Many American citizens have been forced to come to the conclusion that the two major political parties offer very few differences in corruption, inefficiency and excessive spending. As a result, many voters nationally and in North Carolina are opting to change their registration to “Unaffiliated.” The tremendous power this can create for voters was dramatically illustrated in the recent Massachusetts senatorial election. In the long run, these changes may also reduce the corrupting influence money carries in elections. Registering “Unaffiliated” allows you to vote in the primary elections of whichever party you choose (but of course not in both primaries). In essence, this letter is a follow-up to Stephen Madison’s recent letter on this same basic topic. To save time for the read-



ers as well as phone calls to the workers at the Guilford County Elections Board, I want to give the details of how easy it is to change one’s voter registration to “Unaffiliated” and point out pertinent deadlines. The mailing address appears on your current voter card. To change your registration, in the “Change Party” space on the back print “UNA” (for Unaffiliated). If your card has a space for your present party, include that as well. Print your name at the top, sign and date the card at the bottom, and mail it to your elections board. They will mail you a new card. To be eligible for use in the upcoming primaries, this change of registration must be postmarked or received at the board by April

Toll roads have their problems



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.

Michael B. Starn Publisher Thomas L. Blount Editor




Founded in 1885

The most renowned


he N.C. Department of Transportation officials have not eliminated toll roads from their list of options to battle a declining budget in the 2015-20 five-year plan. Primary reasons for keeping that option appears to relate to the fact that 1,000 major highway projects are forecast to cost $45 billion and DOT has only $9 billion in available funding. Additionally, 900 non-highway projects are expected to cost $9 billion and DOT’s funding availability is $1.5 billion. The state’s first toll road will open next year with Triangle Parkway, a 3.4-mile strip that extends from Interstate 40 at N.C. 147 in Durham County to N.C. 540 in Wake County. Gene Conti, N.C. DOT secretary told the annual Transportation Summit in Greensboro this month that “we’re moving forward with tolling. ... We’re at least developing what the options are.” Toll road proponents argue that those who use the system the most will pay the most. But, as the National Motorists Association notes, “Toll roads are literally a monopoly that is sanctioned and protected by the state. Yet the state’s citizens and other highway users have no channel to influence toll road management and pricing decisions.” We agree with NMA, founded in 1982 to represent and protect the interests of North American motorists and begun by combating the 55-mph national maximum speed limit, that toll roads are “an inefficient, backward approach to providing public highways ... (that) foster corruption, political patronage and discourage needed improvements on the rest of the highway system.” Observations of toll road operations in other states have led many to agree with others critics of toll roads because (1) they require vehicles to stop or slow down, manual toll collection wastes time and raises vehicle operating costs; (2) collection costs can absorb up to one-third of revenues, and revenue theft is considered to be comparatively easy; and (3) where the tolled roads are less congested than the parallel “free” roads, the traffic diversion resulting from the tolls increases congestion on the road system and reduces its usefulness. If state officials hadn’t raided the Highway Trust Fund repeatedly over the last decade, more funding would be available for both those major highway projects and non-highway projects that DOT wants to tackle. The toll road approach is the politician/bureaucrat method of letting those who should see to it that Highway Trust Fund integrity is restored off the hook.

Friends It’s time for the citizens to step up of Barack A create controversy R ecently there’s been some commotion on the Opinion page about communists in the White House. Apparently the complaint is that although there are (or were) at least a handful of communist sympathizers in the White House, only one has been called “self-avowed.” The person in question is Van Jones, the former “green jobs czar” who quietly resigned after being exposed as a 9/11 Truther with a long history of left-wing radicalism. A 2005 story in the East Bay Express claimed that in 1992 while in jail after protesting the Rodney King verdict, Van Jones said, “I met all these young radical people of color – I mean really radical, communists and anarchists. And it was, like, ‘This is what I need to be a part of.’ ” The story continues, “I was a rowdy nationalist on April 28, and then the verdicts came OPINION down on April 29. … By August, I Mike was a communist.” Hughes Jones went on to ■■■ form a “socialist collective” called STORM “which held study groups on the theories of Marx and Lenin and dreamed of a multiracial socialist utopia.” Before looking at some of the other radicals associated with the Obama administration, let’s start at the top. Obama has claimed that although he sat in the church of Jeremiah Wright for 20 years, he never heard any of the anti-American racial garbage that we all know Wright spews on a regular basis. That’s a lot like Bill Clinton saying that he smoked marijuana but didn’t inhale. It says a lot about Obama’s character. In 1999, “regulatory czar” Cass Sunstein co-authored an opinion column in the Chicago Tribune that asked, “In what sense is the money in our pockets and bank accounts fully ‘ours’?” The column continued, “Rights to private property, freedom of speech … are taxpayer-funded and government-managed social services designed to improve collective and individual well-being.” Communist? Of course not! In 2008, Obama’s “car czar,” Ron Bloom, said, “We know that the free market is nonsense. … We kind of agree with Mao that political power comes largely from the barrel of a gun.” Communist? Perish the thought! Last year, while giving a speech at a high school graduation ceremony, former White House Communications Director Anita Dunn called Mao Tse-tung one of her “favorite political philosophers.” No one knows exactly how many people died as a direct result of Mao’s political philosophy, but estimates range from around 19 million to 75 million. Service Employees International Union boss Andy Stern has been named as the most frequent White House visitor. Stern recently said, “There are opportunities in America to share better in the wealth, to rebalance the power, and unions and government are part of the solution.” When people like Stern and Obama say share or spread the wealth, what they really mean is control the wealth. If they really wanted to spread the wealth, they’d be free-market capitalists. It probably doesn’t matter what you call them: communists, socialists, Marxists, whatever. I like to call them liberals, but progressive is more accurate. What matters is that Obama and his radical comrades are working hard to trade our freedom for their political power. We need to stop them. MIKE HUGHES is a Navy veteran who lives in Jamestown. His column appears here every other Sunday. To comment, visit and click on local commentary. E-mail him at mrmike27282@

solutions any longer.” We got here because being a Democrat or a Republican was more important than being a citizen. Catering to special interests was more important than the common good. Extremists have hijacked both parties and have largely driven away those seeking the higher ground, usually the moderate centrists. These are not times for stalemate, partisanship, fear-mongering or unrestrained anger. North Carolina especially needs our best minds and our best voice to respond to our very serious challenges. Three changes in North Carolina law move us ahead. First, our state must make it easier for independent candidates to gain ballot access. You can’t win if you can’t get on the ballot. The next step is to adopt the Australian “alternative voting” system, whereby you cast your vote for your first choice, regardless of party, then indicate your number two choice. In addition to eliminating costly runoff elections, this move levels the playing field

for independents. Otherwise Democrats won’t “waste” their vote on an independent, fearing it might even elect the Republican, or vice versa. The third, and most important action, is to remove the redistricting process from our legislators and, as California recently did, give an independent panel the authority to draw competitive electoral districts instead of providing “safe” seats for one party or another. These good government issues will pay huge dividends and move North Carolina forward. North Carolina’s future, like that of the nation, cannot afford continued stagnation, strong-arm power plays or “just say no” refusals to participate in decision making.

Conflicting signs Was U.S. reaction strategic misstep, two-step, setup or prelude to meltdown? BY EARL TILFORD


n March 11, during Vice President Joe Biden’s trip to Israel to herald the reinitiation of Israeli-Palestinian negotiations, Israel’s Interior Ministry announced the construction of 1,600 housing units in Jerusalem’s Ramat Shlomo neighborhood, an area Palestinians want to include in their state should it ever come into existence. Biden initially condemned the move but then, after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu explained it to him and apologized for the timing of the announcement, the vice president stated the incident was “behind them.” Then, on Friday, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton phoned Netanyahu to scold him. Since protocol requires such admonishments be administered “laterally” between heads of state, the call constituted a diplomatic insult in and of itself. Saturday, the Anti-Defamation League stated its shock over the Obama administration’s “public dressing down” of Israel. Given that Israel is America’s closest and only reliable ally in the Middle East, an administration seemingly speaking from distinctly different directions on this particular incident raises a number of troubling questions: First and foremost, was this simply a strategic misstep, perhaps prompted by a conflict within the administration between Secretary of State Clinton and her boss, who, notably, marginalized his greatest political rival’s career in public service by consigning her to Foggy Bottom in an administration focused on “transforming” America domestically while conducting a foreign policy

based on self-deprecating platitudes? Less cynically, the incident might be seen as a pitiful example of miscommunication between the “highest levels” of the administration and the Department of State. Or, giving the Obama administration credit for political moxie, how about this scenario? Perhaps anticipating a predicted political tsunami at the polls in November, President Obama was trying to retain as much Jewish support as possible by letting his most potent political nemesis take the heat while he remained above the fray concentrating on health care reform. Whatever the answer, either way, a strategic misstep resulted. Or perhaps it wasn’t a misstep but a variation on the “old Potomac two-step?” Consider: The Obama administration’s initial gambit of attempted dialogue with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad – Iran’s Holocaust-denying, 9/11Truther, certifiably insane president – in hopes of deterring Teheran’s nuclear ambitions having failed, President Obama desperately needed

to show his “Rocky” side to Middle East leaders, many of whom understand (and fear) the perils inherent in Iranian regional hegemony. If so, beating up on Israel continues the historical precedent practiced by European despots from czars to commissars, one embraced by Arab leaders: when in trouble, blame the Jews. Or, something even more sinister may be involved. The Obama administration knows only decisive military action can stop Iran’s nuclear program. The administration also knows that while it will not use military force, Israel might. In that case, instead of thanking Israel, Middle Eastern leaders will condemn the Jewish state along with the United States. Instead of supporting Israel, Washington may join the cacophony of condemnation based on having previously opposed Israel’s “apartheid” policies. In any case, the Israeli Air Force, as good as it is, can only delay but not totally destroy Iran’s nuclear ambitions. Only American air power can obliterate Teheran’s nuclear ambitions. And it won’t.

Why won’t President Obama use force against Iran? He fears that if he did, Iran might retaliate by sending ground forces to attack U.S. units in Iraq and Afghanistan. An American military stretched thin by eight years of war, and with its Cold War “legacy force” armaments wearing out, could face catastrophic defeat. Combine a military debacle with a likely oil embargo wrecking a U.S. economy – one already burdened by enormous public debt inflicted by the Obama administration – and the expected political tsunami surges beyond November 2010 all the way to November 2012. Or, one final option: Is American foreign policy in a meltdown prompted by the Obama administration’s focus on radicalizing the American health care industry while negating any remnants of American “exceptionalism” in U.S. foreign policy? If so, a nuclear capable Iran may embolden Israel’s enemies into renewed attacks by Hamas guerrillas in Gaza and from southern Lebanon, where fanatically determined Hezbollah units, well armed and trained by Iran and Syria, stand ready to attack. Washington will condemn the aggressors as well as the inevitable strong responses by Israel, but will do nothing to support Israel. In that case, American foreign policy, whether from ineptitude or chicanery, will have engendered a Middle Eastern catastrophe. Meltdown.

Tiger’s back, but it won’t be the same The Charlotte Observer, March 18 n Feb. 19, this is what Tiger Woods had to say about his future in golf: “I do plan to return to golf one day. I just don’t know when that day will be. I don’t rule out that it will be this year.” Three weeks later, this is what he had to say: I’m back! We marvel at how far and straight Woods can hit a golf ball. We’re in awe of his mas-


tery of the short game. We’ve never seen mental toughness like his. And while he’s clearly a pig with no respect for his wife and children, we also recognize that he’s not exactly the first pro athlete to be unfaithful. The price Woods has paid in sullied reputation, damaged marriage and forgone endorsements is astronomical, and he has every right to be back on the PGA Tour. And with the U.S. Open at Pebble

Beach and the British Open at St. Andrews, he could be a threat to win every major this year. Even so, if he was planning on returning so soon, we wish he hadn’t suggested just last month that getting the other facets of his life back on track would take such precedence that his return to golf could be delayed by a year or more. That sudden reversal makes one question the sincerity of other parts of his apology.

It’s starting to look like he calculated that he had to have the requisite public apology so he could get back to chasing Jack Nicklaus’ record of 18 majors. He sounded sincere at the time. But by competing again weeks after suggesting he was on the brink of a long absence, it will be harder for golf fans to fully welcome him back with open arms. We’ll still be amazed by his unprecedented golf game. But it just won’t be the same.


Black farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; settlement still not a done deal THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

A $1.25 billion settlement between black farmers primarily from the South and the Agriculture Department is at risk of unraveling after Congress adjourned for a two-week break without approving the spending. The settlement, to which the Obama administration agreed last month, has been hailed as the final chapter in a decades-long struggle by African-Americans who say they faced discrimination from local USDA offices in trying to get loans or other aid that routinely went to whites. But it included a clause allowing

plaintiffs to back out if money wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t appropriated by March 31 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a timeline that Congress will miss after adjourning Friday until mid-April. Following years of wrangling, the plaintiffs still have strong incentive to stick with the deal. But John Boyd, a lead advocate for black farmers, said he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if the dozens of lawyers working on the case can hold together, particularly after some wanted much more money. He said the administration and congressional leaders are not making it a priority. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we entered into this agreement, the administration agreed to put this on fast track. That was one of our

reasons for taking this deal,â&#x20AC;? he said. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack responded Friday that he and others are working hard at resolving the issue, a task that has been complicated by finding a way to pay for the settlement and by the Democratic health care overhaul that has dominated lawmakersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; attention recently. The funding would be the second round of damages stemming from a class-action lawsuit that the government originally settled in 1999 over discrimination claims against USDA. The suit was named after Timothy Pigford, a black farmer from North Carolina who was among the original plaintiffs.

BACK TO SCHOOL: Adult education doesn’t have to be daunting. 2C

Reform not enough? Retired couples may need $250k for health care BOSTON (AP) – Relief to seniors facing high prescription drug costs is one of the first changes to come under the new health care overhaul. But ultimately that won’t offset the relentless increase in retirees’ medical expenses. A couple retiring this year will need a quarter of a million dollars, on average, to cover medical expenses in retirement, according to a study to be released Thursday by Fidelity Investments. The estimate is up 4.2 percent from Fidelity’s projection last year. The Boston-based financial services company has updated its estimate annually since 2002 as part of its business helping employ-

ers design workplace benefits programs. The study is based on projections for a couple of 65-year-olds retiring this year with Medicare coverage. The estimate factors in the federal program’s premiums, co-payments and deductibles, as well as out-of-pocket prescription costs. The study assumes no employer provided insurance in retirement, and a life expectancy of 85 for women and 82 for men. The estimate has risen 56 percent from Fidelity’s initial $160,000 projection in 2002. The average annual increase has been 5.7 percent, so this year’s 4.2 percent rise – from $240,000 last year to $250,000 – is modest.

But with broader inflation now near zero amid a recession, health care costs continue to rise faster than other expenses, said Sunit Patel, a senior vice president at Fidelity, which is based in Boston. The findings illustrate the importance of factoring in health care alongside housing, food and other expenses in retirement planning. “It turns out to be a surprise for many, and one of the largest expenses in retirement,” Patel said. The increase in this year’s estimate was relatively small because a surge in patent expirations for brand-name drugs meant many cheaper generic versions reached the market, Patel said. That helped limit out-of-pocket prescription costs. Fidelity’s estimate doesn’t factor in most dental services, or long-term

care, such as costs from living in a nursing home. A 2008 study by Fidelity estimated a 65-year-old couple would need $85,000 on average to cover insurance costs for long-term care in retirement. Thursday’s study also didn’t account for the health care overhaul that President Barack Obama signed into law Tuesday. Fidelity was updating its 2010 estimate before legislative details were clear, Patel said. The law’s focus is expanding access to people under age 65. But it also would benefit many retirees by gradually closing what’s known as the “doughnut hole” coverage gap in the Medicare drug benefit. Seniors fall into that hole once they spend $2,830 per year. The legislation would begin narrowing the gap by providing a $250 rebate this year. The gap would be fully closed

by 2020, when seniors would still be responsible for 25 percent of the cost of their medications until Medicare’s catastrophic coverage kicks in. Patel said the gap’s closure is likely to yield only a “very modest” reduction to Fidelity’s $250,000 overall cost estimate. Fidelity’s estimate is a projection of what an average couple would need. Actual costs will vary widely, depending on a couple’s medical needs and how long they live. The Employee Benefit Research Institute, an independent nonprofit, conducts similar research but, unlike Fidelity, doesn’t focus on an average. That’s because there are so many variables that many retirees’ costs will end up far lower or higher than any average, said Paul Fronstin, EBRI’s director of health research and education.

Sisters find new real estate niche



HIGH POINT – Offering an a la carte list of services isn’t common for most real estate companies, but that’s exactly what sisters Joan Swift and Jean Blasingame wanted when they came together with a business plan one year ago – a reinvented form of real estate. After working nine years for a franchise real estate firm, Swift said she noticed several aspects of the industry that she wanted to change. “It was an all-or-nothing deal with most real estate companies,” said Swift, also a licensed general contractor. “We wanted to be able to charge a flat fee for smaller services, like help with paperwork.” She noticed the problem when a friend needed some help with paperwork involved in the purchase of a home. He didn’t need the full service of an agent, just some minor help, she said. Blasingame, who was selling real estate in Brunswick County, was sold on the idea of a company that provides DON DAVIS JR. | HPE full services or smaller services for flat fees when Joan Swift (left) and sister Jean Blasingame operate HomeSell Select.

The idea seemed especially fitting when the housing market took a dive last year, Blasingame said. “All of our plans are geared toward the market in a way,” she said. “Some people may want to list a home but not have a full service agent.” The development of technology, however, will keep the company’s business model relevant even after the housing market heals, she added. “In the future, this is just the way people are going to be,” she said. “Once people go online to search for a home, they feel like they’ve done half of the work and don’t want a full service agent. We can do the simplest stages or full service.” | 888-3617

NEW YORK (AP) – If Verizon Communications Inc. hasn’t already started wiring your city or town with its FiOS fiber-optic TV and broadband service, chances are you won’t get it. Where it’s available, FiOS usually provides the only competition for cable TV apart from satellite service. Studies have shown that its entry into an area leads to lower cable prices, though FiOS itself has not been undercutting cable TV prices substantially. But Verizon is nearing the end of its program to replace copper phone lines with optical fibers that provide much higher Internet speeds and TV service. Its focus is now on completing the network in the communities where it’s already secured “franchises,” the rights to sell TV service that rivals cable, said spokeswoman Heather Wilner. That means Verizon will continue to pull fiber to homes in Washington, D.C., New York City and Philadelphia – projects that will take years to complete – but leaves such major cities as Baltimore and downtown Boston without FiOS. Verizon is still negotiating for franchises in some smaller communities, mainly in New York, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania, but it is not working on securing franchises for any major urban areas, Wilner said.



WTO predicts growth in 2010

Back to school Thinking of heading to college? Here’s some tips CHICAGO – When it comes to retraining, updating skills or finally finishing an abandoned degree, working adults can feel stuck in the search for extra education. It can be hard to figure out how to get time away from work and personal obligations, even for online or evening classes. Most difficult of all, school can be expensive, whether you hope to qualify for a promotion or explore a new career. Americans are always interested in extra education – from single courses to advanced degrees – but even more so when the economy goes south, says Timothy Sloate, director of research at the University Continuing Education Association. “During times of economic recession, enrollments tends to go up,” Sloate says. “That’s fueled by people who lost their jobs and are trying to gain more skills to get a new job (and by) people who still have their jobs and are looking to improve their skills.” Here are some tips on

making the quest less intimidating and more affordable. • Boss buy-in: Before you even fill out an application form, develop a clear plan and schedule a meeting with your boss to talk it through. Explain what you hope to accomplish. Emphasize how the classes will make you a better contributor to the team. “Employers will always respond positively when there’s a clear benefit for the company,” says Jennifer Grasz, a spokeswoman for Keeping surprises to a minimum will help: Be clear about when and how often you would need to shift your work hours or be allowed to leave promptly. • Money for nothing: Even community college classes can be costly if your budget is tight. But there’s free money to be had – if you know where to look. First, check whether your employer offers tuition assistance. Some major corporations cover the full cost of classes. Others

will reimburse you if you make a specific grade, or they’ll let you use pretax dollars. Next, fill out the FAFSA, or Free Application for Student Aid. Many schools and many groups that offer scholarships require it. Even if you plan to take a light load, you may be eligible for aid. And if you have kids in college, mention them because that can improve your position. “Maximize all the free money you can get, and use your own resources,” says Patricia Nash Christel, spokeswoman for student lending company Sallie Mae. Most federally supported loan programs require students to carry at least half the credits of a fulltime student so you likely will narrow your options by taking just one class at a time. And outright grants from the federal government are limited to the very poorest students. But Sallie Mae’s searchable database lists $16 billion in private scholarships, some available to students taking a single class. About one-fourth is for students returning to school after a hiatus. And many private scholarships support students with certain backgrounds or goals.

• Paying your way: Once you’ve tracked down all possible scholarships and assessed how much you can afford to pay, schedule a meeting with your school’s financial aid office. Some colleges allow you to pay in installments, interest free. And most participate in private loan programs. Sallie Mae’s version offers interest rates of 4.25 percent to 12.5 percent, depending on your creditworthiness and requires interest-only payments while you’re in school so you just have the principal to repay once you’re out. Also consider changing the beneficiary on your family’s 529 college savings plan – to yourself. • Tax benefit: If your classes are required to maintain or improve your skills, or are mandated by law or regulators, you’ll be able to deduct that expense on your taxes. But most aren’t, accountants say. Instead, you can deduct up to 20 percent of out-ofpocket tuition and fees if you file solo and have adjusted gross income under $60,000, or if you file jointly with income under $120,000, says Mark Luscombe, an analyst at CCH, which publishes tax information.

Google test reveals China filters BEIJING (AP) – Type “Falun Gong” in Chinese into Google’s search engine from Beijing, and the Web browser suddenly becomes unresponsive for about a minute. Make the same search from Hong Kong, and you’ll get plenty of links to the spiritual movement banned by the Chinese government. Internet users in mainland China and Hong Kong now share the same Google search site, but their experiences continue to widely differ, particularly on topics deemed sensitive by China’s Communist leaders. The difference is that the government, rather than Google Inc., is now doing the censoring. The findings in a recent Associated Press test offer insights into the sophistication with which China uses its complex “Great Firewall” to filter its citizens’ online view of the world. Recent searches for taboo topics from Beijing generally produced “page cannot be displayed” errors. The user’s browser stops working for about a

In other words, it’s not just the links to those sites that don’t work; the results don’t come back at all. Yet the filters aren’t exact, and English-language sites have a greater chance of slipping through, partly because the government is more concerned about the vast majority of citizens who speak only Chinese. And even as the Great

Firewall blocks Twitter and sensitive blog postings, excerpts do show up on Google’s search results page. The findings illustrate how China’s vast government-run network of Web filters works. When a user enters a sensitive term in a search, it triggers a brief blockage that affects subsequent searches – even those on innocuous topics – by that user or anyone else at the same numeric Internet address. That

can be one computer or an entire cybercafe. Chinese-language searches for missing Chinese activist lawyer Gao Zhisheng, jailed Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo, Chinese President Hu Jintao and “June 4 incident” – known elsewhere as the 1989 Tiananmen Square crackdown – all led to the Web browser in Beijing hanging for a minute or longer. Before Google killed its mainland search service Monday and redirected “” traffic to its existing Hong Kong-based site, Google returned censored results with a note explaining that some items had been removed. Google needed to comply with Chinese laws, but it wanted users to know about the omissions in hopes they would pressure their government to lift restraints. But Google announced Jan. 12 that it was no longer willing to censor those results after it discovered it was the target of hacking attacks originating from China.

GENEVA (AP) – The World Trade Organization said Friday that it expected 9.5 percent growth in merchandise trade this year, a strong recovery from the steepest commercial contraction since the Great Depression. The rebound will be led by an 11 percent growth in exports from developing countries such as China, India and Brazil, the WTO said. Exports from wealthy nations should rise 7.5 percent. World trade shrunk by 12.2 percent in 2009, as the economic crisis destroyed consumer confidence, weakened demand, damaged credit lines for exporters and, in some instances, led to increased protectionism from governments. The WTO said it was the “sharpest decline in more than 70 years,” and the world’s richest

countries suffered the worst: exports plunged 13.9 percent in the United States, 14.8 percent in Europe and 24.9 percent in Japan. “We see the light at the end of the tunnel,” WTO chief Pascal Lamy said, “and trade promises to be an important part of the recovery.” At the current recovery rate, global commerce will return to precrisis levels in 2011. The WTO used trade volumes and not trade values for its assessment to avoid distortions caused by sharp changes in commodity prices or exchange rates. In value terms, world trade crashed 23 percent to $12.15 trillion in 2009, the Geneva-based WTO said. Commercial services exports sunk 13 percent to $3.31 trillion for their first slowdown in 26 years.

Fueled by tobacco Scientists see source for potential biofuel RICHMOND, Va. (AP) – Some researchers say an age-old cash crop long the focus of public health debate could be used to help solve the nation’s energy crisis, by genetically modifying the tobacco leaf for use as a biofuel. The golden leaf is the latest in a series of possible biofuels like switchgrass and algae that are being floated as Congress and President Barack Obama stress the importance of securing alternative energy sources. Scientists believe using tobacco would be beneficial because it would not affect a major U.S. food source, unlike other biofuels made from corn, soybeans and other crops. But there’s no worry here about second-hand smoke for commuters stuck in traffic: the tobacco wouldn’t be burned to power vehicles, merely used to extract its oils and sugars.

Tobacco is an attractive “energy plant” because it can generate a large amount of oil and sugar more efficiently than other crops, said Vyacheslav Andrianov, a researcher at the Biotechnology Foundation Laboratories at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia. Andrianov recently cowrote a paper on how researchers have found a way to genetically engineer tobacco to boost the oil in the plant’s leaves. Researchers found that modifying the plant produced as much as 20 times more oil, according to the report published online in December and featured in a special biofuels edition of the Plant Biotechnology Journal. “Certainly tobacco could work; any plant is a potential source of biofuel,” said Matt Hartwig, a spokesman for the Renewable Fuels Association. “I know tobacco farms have been hit hard in recent years and this may be an opportunity for some of those tobacco farmers.”

HOUSTON – Duke’s current players barely are old enough to remember watching as many Final Fours on television as their coach has seen from the bench. Coach Mike Krzyzewski has led 10 teams to the Final Four, meaning that today’s South Regional title game against Baylor at 5:05 p.m. won’t be the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for him that it could be for his players. Krzyzewski, however, wants No. 11 every bit as badly as his players want No. 1. “I am every bit as passionate about my team today as I was in ’86. There is no question,” Krzyzewski said, referencing his first Final Four team. “But I’d rather be living this moment than thinking about some other moment that we had. It’s a lot better, believe me. “Forget about the past. In college, it’s always about the present and what this group is trying to do.” In some circles, that concentration on the here and now gets twisted into a what-have-you-done-forme-lately mentality, and lately Duke has been in a postseason slump relative to its standards. So as much as Krzyzewski’s current players, on the brink of competing in their first Elite Eight, want to win for themselves, they also want it for their leader. “He’s really taken a lot of heat for how much we’ve struggled the last couple of years,” senior Brian Zoubek said. “No matter what we were going through, he was always there, always coaching us and giving us his everything to try to help us. He tried so many different things to try to help us during the bad times. “We appreciate him nev-

Duke’s Miles Plumlee (21) dunks over Purdue’s E’Twaun Moore (33), JaJuan Johnson (25) and Chris Kramer during the second half of the Blue Devils’ victory in a NCAA South Regional semifinal on Friday night. er giving up on us.” Duke’s definition of “bad times” is a bit different than it is for Baylor, both on and off the court. The school is fortunate to still be playing basketball after rules violations that could have resulted in the NCAA’s “death penalty” shutting down the program five years ago.


MARTINSVILLE, Va. – Given his racing background, the success Jimmie Johnson has achieved at Martinsville Speedway defies logic. The failure of Greg Biffle and others to run well at the Cup Series’ smallest track defies logic as well. Johnson cut his racing teeth in off-road tracks – not on some short track in southern California – while Biffle was among those who came up on the weekly tracks. That said, the assumption would be that Johnson would struggle at the .526-mile speedway that is the slowest in big-time stock car racing, while the short-track veterans would excel. Instead, Johnson goes for his

On the court, Baylor most recently went to the Final Four in 1950, which also is the Bears’ most recent NCAA Tournament victory before their current run. By Krzyzewski’s way of thinking, the discrepancy in the two programs’ past success is nothing more than history.

About 40 hours after surviving a rugged Purdue team that beat on the Blue Devils with an aggressive man-to-man defense, Duke must handle an athletic Baylor team that features an active zone defense that has held three NCAA Tournament victims to an average of fewer than 60 points.

On the other end, Duke must deal with point guard Tweety Carter and shooting guard LaceDarius Thomas – likened by different Duke players as the equal of Pac-10 player of the year Jerome Randle of Cal and first-team All-ACC performer Malcolm Delaney of Virginia Tech.



Hamlin heads for surgery; Harvick bags Saturday win. 4D seventh Martinsville victory overall and his sixth in the past eight races today. Biffle, who starts in the second row with Johnson, goes for just his second top-10 finish in 15 starts. Johnson believes not starting out on the short tracks may have been a blessing when it came to becoming a good driver at Martinsville. “I’m glad we didn’t because I was tough on brakes coming up through the ranks (once he started driving stock cars),” Johnson said. “I don’t think I would have made 500 laps here in my early days.

“This track demands a lot out of the car and driver, and patience is part of that. There are guys who are fast at the beginning and in the middle of races and then get easily frustrated with traffic and make bad decisions. If you have a bad pit stop, it is easy to lose your cool. A driver has a lot on his hands here to keep his head in the game.” How hard is it to stay in the game? Just eight drivers in today’s starting 43-car field have a Martinsville clock trophy. Of those eight, only four have more than one victory. Of those four, only Johnson and seven-time Martinsville winner Jeff Gordon have more than two. Biffle’s poor Martinsville record is part of Roush-Fenway Racing’s general ineptitude here that includes two top-five finishes for

Matt Kenseth in 20 races and one top-five for Carl Edwards in 10 races. Biffle believes a lot of drivers have trouble here because the precise line around the tight turns provides little room for error. “There is a lot of technique to the brake, when you brake, coming off the corner. If the car doesn’t have bite with the front tires and won’t stop straight and wants to pull hard to the left or slide that left front tire … if the car won’t do those things, then there is nothing the driver can do to mask them because the speed is so slow,” Biffle said. “We can’t arc it out and get a different angle (as on a bigger track) because the speed is so slow. If that car won’t do its thing, then you don’t stand a chance.” | 888-3519





Johnson success a surprise at Martinsville



t always pays to make a good first impression. For Appalachian State’s women’s basketball team, that first impression could end with a postseason tournament championship. The Mountaineers (22-12) play host to Memphis (20-13) in the championship game of the inaugural Women’s Basketball Invitational today at 2 p.m. at the Holmes Center. Today’s winner will go down in history

as the first WBI champion. To paraphrase “Highlander,” there can be only one first WBI champion. And former East Davidson star Anna Freeman has a chance to cap her first season in Boone with a championship. Freeman, who scored 17 points, grabbed nine rebounds and dished three assists in Thursday’s 77-58 semifinal rout of Southern Conference rival College of Charleston, has

enjoyed a solid debut season for the Mountaineers. She’s started all 34 games and averaged 10.4 points, 8.4 rebounds, 2.6 assists and two steals per game in nearly 31 minutes of action. Freeman and her teammates hope to extend their eight-game winning streak to nine, and cut down the nets for their efforts.

High Point splits with Winthrop on diamond ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORTS


Kentucky stars DeMarcus Cousins (right) and John Wall (second from right) bury heads in dejection and disappointment in reaction to the Wildcatsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; loss to West Virginia in the NCAA East Regional final Saturday.

West Virginia, Butler punch tickets in shockers THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

in this one. They were awful from 3-point range, missing their first 20 attempts and finishing a stunning 4 of 32 (12.5 percent). DeAndre Liggins finally hit a 3 with 3:29 left to end the drought, but by then it was too late. West Virginia went the other way, making eight 3s in the first half without a 2-point basket. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a turbulent time for Huggins since his previous Final Four appearance. He was forced out at Cincinnati, had a heart attack in 2002 and spent a year coaching Kansas State before he found the country roads back to Huntington in 2007.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Country road, take me home. Or better yet, Indianapolis. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s almost heaven, West Virginia. The Mountaineers are off to the Final Four for the first time since 1959. Joe Mazzulla scored a career-high 17 points in his first start of the season and West Virginia handled a cold-shooting Kentucky team stocked with future NBA players almost from the opening tip for a 7366 victory in the East Regional final Saturday. Mountaineers coach Bob Hug- BUTLER 63, KANSAS STATE 56 gins, back with his alma mater, is SALT LAKE CITY â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Every day they in the Final Four for the first time walk into practice, they also walk since taking Cincinnati in 1992. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s onto a movie set â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the one where an even longer stretch for West Vir- they filmed the story about the litginia â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Jerry West was the star of tle team that gets its big chance and the team 51 years ago, and not yet a lives out the unthinkable dream.

The young Wildcats could have Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also the story of Butler used Westâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s famous shooting touch â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the team thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reminding every-

one that big schools with big money donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a monopoly on everything in big-time sports. Yes, the boys from Butler did it â&#x20AC;&#x201D; getting 22 points from Gordon Hayward to defeat Kansas State 63-56 in the West Regional final Saturday and advance to the Final Four. Next, the Bulldogs take their 24game winning streak to downtown Indy. Though only five miles from the Butler campus, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to think of many programs that have taken a longer, more unlikely road to get this close to a championship. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be just as cool if we moved it to Hinkle,â&#x20AC;? Butler coach Brad Stevens said of his teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fieldhouse. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be all for that.â&#x20AC;? No such luck. Still, the fifth-seeded Bulldogs (32-4) are writing their own underdog story, even if they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really be called underdogs anymore. Shelvin Mack scored 16 and Ronald Nored and Willie Veasley keyed an in-your-face defensive effort.

ROCK HILL, S.C. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; High Point Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s baseball team split Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doubleheader at Winthrop to take two of three games in the Big South Conference series. Steve Antolik went 4for-5 with six RBIs and Nate Roberts hit a grand slam in the third inning to lead the Panthers to a 15-9 win in the first game. Matt Gantner hit a solo homer in the third and finished with three RBIs. Murray White IV was 4-for-5 with four runs scored, Kyle Mahoney went 4-for-4 with three RBIs and two runs, and Max Fulginiti was 3-for-5 with two RBIs in the 21-hit attack. Corey Swickle improved to 4-0 with 41â &#x201E;3 innings of relief of starter Jared Avidon. HPU dropped the second game 8-4, with Brian Jones allowing six runs â&#x20AC;&#x201C; four earned â&#x20AC;&#x201C; on six hits in 32â &#x201E;3 innings to suffer the loss. The Panthers had just nine hits in the nightcap, with Gantner going 3-for-4 with a run and RBI and Pablo Rosario scoring twice. HPUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s record evened at 16-8 overall and 3-3 in the Big South while Winthrop went to 13-10, 1-2. The Panthers visit Duke on Tuesday.

TRACK AND FIELD Sophomore Manika Gamble placed fifth in

the 400-meter hurdles at the Raleigh Relays and senior Jesse Cherry set an HPU record of 28:44.05 in the 10,000meters at the Stanford Invitational in weekend action for the Panthers. Gamble finished in 1:01.13 in the 400. Six Panthers ran the 1,500meter in Raleigh, with freshman Vanessa Piacente leading the way in 4:48.05 to place fourth in her heat and 16th in her section. Junior Amber Donnelly placed 18th in the javelin with a throw of 111-2. Sophomore Kelsey Hinchliffe finished 10th in her heat of the 3,000-meter steeplechase and sophomore Christina Fenske tied for 10th in the high jump, clearing 5-3. The men got a 13thplace finish from freshman Josh Pelletier in the javelin. Also in Raleigh, senior Josh Cashman took 16th in his heat of the 1,500 in 4:13.78 to lead a host of Panthers. Freshman Dakota Peachee ran a career-best 15:11.02 in the 5,000 to place 13th in his section and junior Justin Conaway clocked in at 10.94 in the 100-meter dash to place 25th. The other four HPU runners at Stanford included senior Cole Atkins and sophomore Neal Darmody with career bests in the 10,000meter and senior Josh Morgan with a career best of 3:49.16 in the 1,500. Junior Jevin Monds ran 3:54.18 in the 1,500.

Duke women advance to regional finals MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Jasmine Thomas matched her career-high with 29 points, and Duke beat San Diego State to reach the Memphis regional final. With the win, the Blue Devils (30-5) notched their eighth 30-win season in the past decade and moved to their first regional final since 2006 when they lost in overtime to Maryland in the national championship game. They will face Baylor, a 77-62 winner over topseeded Tennessee. Duke led 35-34 after a tight first half, and the Blue Devils scored the first 10 points of the second half to take advantage of the Aztecsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; cold shooting.

Brittney Griner had 27 points and 10 blocks to lead Baylor. Tennessee tried putting as many as four players on Griner at a time to stop her in the paint but to no avail. Griner hit several shots while double-teamed or passed to an open Lady Bears teammate for an easy layup.

The Lady Volunteers were up 55-50 with just under eight minutes left. Griner hit back-to-back layups and had a threepoint play as part of a 21-1 run as Baylor (26-9) marched toward only its second round of eight appearance in history. Tennessee finishes 32-3.

Harvick trucks again AP

Kernersville resident Kevin Harvick holds trophy Saturday while celebrating another NASACR truck series victory at Martinsville Speedway. series champion Hornaday and Mike Skinner joining the battle. Harvick had built his lead to more than 4 seconds when Hornaday bumped Sauter from behind on the 222nd lap, sending Sauter and Skinner out of contention and bringing another caution. The 11th yellow flag of the race forced Harvick to show one more time that he had the best truck, this time with teammate Hornaday to

his inside and Peters directly behind him. He did it with ease, moving in front of Hornaday immediately and winning by 1.552 seconds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The boss said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taking the outside and I better give him the spot,â&#x20AC;? Hornaday said. Hornaday, the defending series champion, bounced back after finishing 27th and 34th in the first two races to finish second, followed by Brian Ickler, Peters and Johnny Benson.

Hamlin headed to OR for knee injury BY GREER SMITH ENTERPRISE SPORTS WRITER

MARTINSVILLE, Va. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Denny Hamlin confirmed Saturday that he will have surgery Monday to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament. He suffered the injury to his left knee while playing basketball in January. If todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s race at Martinsville Speedway is rained out, Hamlin will have the surgery on Tuesday. The surgery will be performed by Dr. Patrick Connor with OrthoCarolina in Charlotte. Hamlin originally wanted to wait until

the end of the season to have the procedure. But he changed his mind after doing other damage to the knee. He is having the operation this week because the Cup series is idle next weekend, providing almost two weeks of recovery time before the series resumes at Phoenix. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It seems like weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve now cracked the meniscus, and if that goes then what will happen is the knee will completely lock up and then you have to get it done,â&#x20AC;? Hamlin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best for me to limit my time out of the race car by doing it on an off week. Just take my

lumps that first week and then get back in the car just as soon as I can. With not having it, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing else around the knee to support it. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done further damage and then I noticed that after the Bristol race it was as achy as it had been and hurt pretty good. The best thing is to just get it over with.â&#x20AC;? Hamlin said rehab begins two days after the surgery and that he will be on crutches until he gets to Phoenix. Casey Mears will serve as a standby driver for a few races. | 888-3519

St. Pete thrills Castroneves, Power ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; If there was a low moment for Helio Castroneves during last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tax-evasion trial that threatened to end his racing career and send him to jail, it likely came during the Honda Grand Prix. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of Castronevesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; favorite races. And fighting for his freedom kept him from sitting behind the wheel that weekend. On Sunday, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be back, starting fifth in the race on the 1.8-mile, 14turn street circuit. His Penske Racing teammate

Edwardsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; streak ends in NHRA CONCORD (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Jeg Coughlin ended Mike Edwardsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; streak of 12 consecutive top qualifying positions in Pro Stock on Saturday at the NHRA Four-Wide Nationals at zMAX Dragway. In the first NHRA event to feature four-lane racing, Coughlin posted a track-record time of 6.520 seconds at a top speed of 212.29 mph in a Chevy Cobalt. Edwards was second with a 6.548 at 212.13 in a Pontiac GXP. It is Coughlinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first No. 1 position since 2008 and his 16th overall. He will face Rodger Brogdon, Bob Yonke and Shane Gray in the opening eliminations. Greg Anderson set a national speed record at 212.46 mph. Cory McClenathan (Top Fuel), Robert Hight (Funny Car) and Matt Smith (Pro Stock Motorcycle) will lead their categories into Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eliminations.

Will Power, easily the dominant driver in St. Pete so far this weekend, will be on the pole. Still, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a course that suits Castroneves perfectly, proven by his IndyCar victories here in 2006 and 2007, and runner-up finish in 2008. And to say he appreciates this return to the waterfront layout is putting it mildly. Given his track record in St. Pete, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to see why. Of course, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s becoming a fast favorite for Power, too.

Power won the seasonopener two weeks ago in Sao Paulo, was the best in every IRL practice session Friday and Saturday, and had the best lap time in the final round of qualifying by more than a quarter-second over Tony Kanaan. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the third time Power will start from the pole. Rain is in the forecast for Sunday afternoon. Scott Dixon will start third, on the inside of Justin Wilson. Row 3 will have Castroneves and Marco Andretti.

team and trying to get to the shop more â&#x20AC;&#x201C; take the guys out to dinner more often â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and maybe try to keep the group a little bit more upbeat so it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel so much like a job sometimes. SPORTS â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s especially important when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not Greer performing well. When Smith people are winning races â&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  and things are going good, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy for everybody to be happy and giving their best every day. When things arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going as well sometimes youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to put a little extra work into it.â&#x20AC;? He admitted that his non-confrontational demeanor may have contributed to the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decline because he was willing to settle for the status quo instead of calling for changes when he thought they needed to be made. Most of Kensethâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top-fives last year came at tracks where he traditionally does well: Dover, Charlotte and Texas. But he was also mediocre to bad on tracks where he has run well in the past such as Michigan, Bristol and Chicago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I try to be pretty even keeled about it, no matter how good or bad itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going,â&#x20AC;? Kenseth said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tougher when things are going bad because you lose your patience. You feel like with the people that we have assembled and the equipment we have that we should be able to do better than what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done the last couple years. I feel we should be able to do a lot better and I think they feel like that too, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to remain patient when things arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going right, but you just have to keep working on it.â&#x20AC;? He and Parrot will have their work cut out to extend their string of good finishes today. As part of an overall lack of success by Roush-Fenway Racing in recent years at Martinsville, Kenseth owns just two top-five finishes in 20 starts on the â&#x20AC;&#x153;paper clip.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are certain tracks that are more of a struggle and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to work harder to try and make it happen than you do at some other tracks,â&#x20AC;? Kenseth said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This has certainly been one that has been a struggle and a source of frustration for me, but you just keep working on it. You come here and try to bring the best stuff you can, work as hard as you can, and hope for a good result.â&#x20AC;?| 888-3519

MARTINSVILLE, Va. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Kevin Harvick pulled away from teammate Ron Hornaday Jr. on a restart with 19 laps to go to win his second consecutive truck series victory.

Harvick asserted his dominance all race long, but especially on a restart with 43 laps to go.

att Kenseth still enjoys the honeymoon. But not the husbandand-wife kind, mind you. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking the driver-crew chief kind. Kenseth is a month into a relationship with veteran mechanic Todd Parrott after car owner Jack Roush â&#x20AC;&#x153;divorcedâ&#x20AC;? Kenseth and Drew Blickensderfer â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a match that appeared to be made in heaven when they teamed to win the first two races last season. Everything was downhill from there. Kenseth suffered an engine failure in the third race, managed just five topfive finishes the rest of the season and missed making the Chase for the Championship for the first time. When he had all sorts of hiccups on the way to finishing eighth in the Daytona 500, Roush made the change with Kenseth in agreement. Parrott, whose resume includes a Cup championship with Dale Jarrett, guided Kenseth to a seventh place in their first race together at Auto Club Speedway in what was an off-day for all the Roush-Fenway cars. Since then, they have finished fifth, second and fifth â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a string that puts them second in points (one behind leader Kevin Harvick) going into todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Goodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 500 at Martinsville Speedway. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybody asks how itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Well, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still kind of on the honeymoon,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see how it goes,â&#x20AC;? Kenseth said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been going really well. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve enjoyed working with him. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got a lot of experience and the guys really look up to him as a leader, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got some great leadership qualities about him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been running pretty well and as an organization weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been running a lot better than the way we ended up last year, so Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking forward to it.

Fishing for â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; shad a treat on the Roanoke

Porter arrested BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Authorities say NFL linebacker Joey Porter has been arrested in Bakersfield on suspicion of drunken driving and accused of assaulting an officer and resisting arrest. The California Highway Patrol says the 33-year-old player was confronted by officers early Saturday in a fast-food parking lot. Porter refused to provide his driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s license and began to roll up his window when asked to leave the car. Police say that when an officer reached to unlock the door Porter slapped the officerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hand.

reel that has a good drag. One thing to remember is the water that Hickory shad inhabit is filled with other species, like catfish and bowfin. A few years ago, my nephew hooked a 14-pound blue catfish on his shad rig, We had to chase the fish multiple times and there was more than one time we could see his spool, but we eventually boated it, Longer rods allow more casting distance, and this can be an asset when anchored next to the mouth of a creek or eddy. The wind can push the boat away from the target spot and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll often need the extra distance. Longer rods are more sporty anyway, giving the fish a little more pulling advantage. I use crappie jigs such as rigged Twirl Tails and small Road Runners. Colors make a difference sometimes, and the best ones to start with are chartreuse, white, red and white, chartreuse and white, and yellow. If the water is murky, lighter colors work better. Many times, shad will follow the lure all the way to the boat without hitting it. You can often see them flash just as the lure comes into sight. If you see this, add another lure. Shad often respond well to a trailer a foot or so behind the main lure. I like small spoons for this as well as a second crappie jig. Vary the retrieve speed to find what the fish like. These fish are perfect for fly fishing, and often fly fishermen out-fish spin fishermen two to one. For fly fishing, I like a five-weight, nine-foot fast action rod. Use a sinking line or a sec-

Hickory shad are hard-fighting sport fish that can be a treat to catch in the month of April on the Roanoke River. from 21-foot cabin cruisers and 10-foot jon boats. My idea of the perfect shad boat is my grandson, Charlieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, 16-foot Carolina Skiff. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to tow, good on gas, runs shallow water, and has a lot of floor space. Almost any boat will work fine, though, as long as the water level isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t too low. The Roanoke is known for being rocky, but most of the rocks are easy to spot provided you pay attention. Just remember you are in a rocky-bottomed river and not a mud-bottomed lake and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be fine. If a rock is high enough for your prop to get it, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see signs of it in the current. Pay attention and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be fine. Flows below 4,000 cubic feet per second require shallow draft boats and attention. For a current report of river flow, go to http://waterdata.usgs. gov/nc/nwis/uv?site_ no=02080500. No, the fish arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite there yet. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d say next week may be the beginning of the bite. I can assure you that when they get here â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m ready.

tion of lead core tied to a braided mono running line to get the fly down. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to modify your casting technique a little if you normally fish floating lines because the line wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be nearly as easy to pick back up. I strip the line back until I have only my lead core shooting head out of the top guide. I then water haul the shooting head to load it and shoot the running line. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m hardly graceful at this, but I achieve reasonable distance. The best flies are Crazy Charlieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and small Clouserâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the same colors as the jigs mentioned earlier. I strip the line back in a series of short strips after letting the line settle to get it down where the fish are. While shad will often hit near the top, they rarely hit a lure that hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been deep. Hits near the top are from fish that have followed the lure as it rises. Fly fishing for me is easier when Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m anchored, since itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easier to manage the line. Almost any boat will work for shad fishing. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen shad caught

why I drive 160 miles to the Roanoke to get into these fish. These fish are aggresSPORTS sive biters and fightDick ers, taking Jones a variety of â&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  lures from spoons and jigs to flies. Hickory shad donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take large lures, so anything more than about two inches in length is a liability. This means ultra-light tackle is the only way to go. Six-pound test line is probably the best, with the small-diameter braids such as Fireline Fusion eight- or 10-pound being my favorite. If the fish are really turned on, finding them isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a problem. Many times, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve launched the boat while bank fishermen at the Weldon boat ramp were bringing in shad on almost every cast. In fact, some of the best shad fishing is within a half mile of that Weldon ramp. Look for changes in current and places where fast water meets slow water. Color changes work really well, too. Cast from one type of water to the other and the hookup often happens when the lure goes through the transition. I use nothing heavier than one-eighth ounce lures, although I do increase the weight with a split shot when the water is fast and the fish are deep. Vary retrieve speeds and change colors until you discern a pattern. For spinning gear, I like an ultra-light seven-foot rod with a tiny spinning



â&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to have a dollar for every time Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gotten a funny look when I told someone I was going shad fishing. Most folks think of shad as small fish that make great bait and are hard to keep alive. The fact is, there are six members of the shad or herring family in North Carolina. While four are considered bait fish, the other two species are very much sport fish, with Hickory shad reaching more than three pounds and American shad weighing more than seven pounds. Two other species â&#x20AC;&#x201C; gizzard and threadfin shad â&#x20AC;&#x201C; are common in the Piedmont and are great bait fish for a variety of species. The others â&#x20AC;&#x201C; alewives and blueback herring â&#x20AC;&#x201C; are normally found in rivers that open into the ocean. All shad are anadromous fish, meaning they live in the ocean and spawn in fresh water. Gizzard and threadfin shad adapt to landlocked lakes and streams. Alewives and blueback herring are in cooler waters. The shad that get me excited are Hickory shad. While Hickory shad are considered endangered in some areas, they are plentiful in the Roanoke River in April. A good day of shad fishing would certainly produce more than 50 fish per fisherman, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had days that produced five times that. These fish run from about 12 to 20 inches in length, with roe females easily reaching three pounds. Imagine catching 100 fish a day, averaging two pounds on ultralight tackle, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll know

Senior women’s basketball team is one of the best anywhere BY JIMMY TOMLIN ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER




IGH POINT – When Mary Newton and her 60-plus-year-old friends get together to talk hoops, they don’t talk hula hoops, hoop skirts or even hoop earrings. No, when these six women, all of them sexagenarians – well, except for the one who’s 70 – talk hoops, they talk about shooting hoops. And actually, they do more than talk – they play, and they play to win. “We’re extremely competitive,” says Newton, the 66-year-old captain of the Silver Spirits II, who compete in the women’s basketball division of the Senior Games. “We end up on the floor sometimes – that’s how hard we play.” Four of the six women are High Pointers or former High Pointers: Newton; her

’We’re extremely competitive. We end up on the floor sometimes – that’s how hard we play.’ Mary Newton Silver Spirits II captain sister, Sara Clark, 61, who now lives in Greensboro; Patsy Williard, 61; and the team’s oldest member, Doris Lightfoot, who is – ahem – 70. “I really need to be moving up (to an older age group),” Lightfoot says with a chuckle, “but I’m still in good shape physically.” The other two team members – 65-yearold Ailene Steelman and 66-year-old Vickie Frye – live in Yadkinville and Mocksville, respectively. Not surprisingly, the women trace their interest in basketball to their younger years. All four of the High Point women played for the girls’ team at the old Allen

Registration is currently under way for the 2010 Greater High Point Senior Games, which officially will begin in April. A preview of the local competition will be published on Monday’s Life&Style page. For more information about the Senior Games, call the Roy B. Culler Jr. Senior Center at 883-3584.


Silver Spirits II defeated the defending national champion and won the bronze medal at last year’s national Senior Games. Jay High School. Clark and Williard were coached by Kay Yow, the late North Carolina State University women’s coach whose legendary coaching career began at Allen Jay. Newton went on to play for High Point College, and Williard played a season at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. What is surprising, though, is that some four-plus decades later, these women still have game. “I hadn’t played since high school, so I didn’t think I could even play at this age,” says Lightfoot. “But it kind of intrigued me, so I gave it a try, and I got hooked. It was a little bit awkward at first – that whole process of dribbling and shooting the ball and running around on the court – but it

didn’t take me long to get it back. I was quite surprised.” Williard actually laughed when Lightfoot first invited her to a team practice. “But then I thought about how much I loved playing basketball in high school, and I wondered if it would be possible to play again,” she recalls. “I went to one practice, and I was hooked.” Williard describes the intensity of play at her first tournament as “a little shocking. It’s faster than most people would think for older ladies. I realized I would have to get in better shape.” In Senior Games competition, the women play a half-court game of three-on-three, and they play two halves of either 12 or 15 minutes apiece (the time varies, depending on which state they’re playing a tournament in). Most other rules are standard, except for a few minor modifications. The Silver Spirits II practice twice a week and play in a number of tournaments throughout the year. Their next competition will be an invitational tourney April 24-25 in Gatlinburg, Tenn., followed by tournaments in Virginia, West Virginia and Maine. This fall, the women hope to defend their state title in the N.C. Senior Games and return to the nationals, where they won a bronze medal last year. “Our greatest accomplishment at the



North Carolina is approaching a milestone of 4 million registered donors as April, National Donate Life Month, draws near. The month is a time to celebrate the tremendous generosity of those who have saved and enhanced the lives of others by becoming organ, tissue and eye donors. Rep. Dale Folwell of Winston-Salem issued a challenge Thursday to North Carolinians to reach that goal by April 30, which will require nearly doubling the normal pace of registered donors. “After a long winter, North Carolinians are ready to rally around something positive like organ donation,” Folwell said. “If everyone would simply look at their driver’s license and respond online at www. or by going to a DMV office and adding a heart, the great state of North Carolina can hit the unprecedented 4 million donor mark.” Nationally, there are more than 105,000 people on the waiting list for a transplant, and more than 3,300 people are currently waiting in North Carolina. Approximately 12 new names are added every day, and sadly, 18 people in the United States die every day waiting for a lifesaving transplant. To register, North Carolinians can have a red heart added to their driver’s license at their local DMV office, or register anytime online at www.donate

Mom is fired up after son is stood up D

ear Abby: My son, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peter,â&#x20AC;? is in college working on a postgraduate degree. He arranged a date with a young woman while they were home over the holidays. After accepting the first date and breaking it, she agreed to a second one. As Peter was driving to pick her up, he called to double-check her address only to be told she was still at a previous engagement. Naturally, Peter expected sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d call back when she was free â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. There was no explanation, no call or text or any further communication. What is happening to young people today? Do texting and online social networking encourage them to avoid simple human kindness and consideration of others? I think these new devices are giving kids an easy way to get out of difficult and uncomfortable situations. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to hear the hurt of rejection or the sting of their rudeness through a text or a chat page. Meanwhile, my thoughtful, sensitive

ADVICE Dear Abby

son sat home thinking he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t important enough for an explanation! At 26 heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beginning to think he should just focus on finishing school and forget the dating scene. And if this is the caliber of todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s young women, maybe he should! â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Mother Of A Good Son

Dear Mother: Your son may be thoughtful and sensitive, but he appears to have unfortunate taste in women. You say he is working on a postgraduate degree? How old was the girl â&#x20AC;&#x201C; because she appears to have the emotional maturity of a young teenager. Nobody likes rejection, but Peter should consider the source. Rather than giving up on dating, he should look for company among women who are at his intellectual and emotional level â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in college or grad school or perhaps a little older. â&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013; 

Dear Abby: I am a 29-year-old female who would like to know why people feel compelled to tell random strangers to â&#x20AC;&#x153;smile.â&#x20AC;? I was in the market the other night and a man came walking by me saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;You dropped something,â&#x20AC;? and was pointing to the floor. I looked down and said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see anything.â&#x20AC;? He then told me, â&#x20AC;&#x153;You dropped your smile.â&#x20AC;? Abby, I was SO not amused. I turned around going back to my business saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh, OK.â&#x20AC;? The man proceeded to walk away mumbling, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look so serious. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only the grocery store.â&#x20AC;? I hate when people do this. It happens to me a lot and has most of my life. People â&#x20AC;&#x201C; especially seniors â&#x20AC;&#x201C; say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you dare smile for me, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you dare!â&#x20AC;? Or, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Smile! Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re too cute not to smile.â&#x20AC;? An old gentleman said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like ice â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so cold, never smiles.â&#x20AC;? What can I do if this happens again? I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see the need to walk around the store or sit at my desk at work with a Cheshire cat grin on my face all day.



Any suggestions? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Offended in Gilroy, Calif. Dear Offended: The man who asked if you had â&#x20AC;&#x153;lostâ&#x20AC;? something may have been making a clumsy attempt to pick you up. That sometimes happens in markets. As to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;older peopleâ&#x20AC;? who comment on your expression â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or lack thereof â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they may consider themselves so â&#x20AC;&#x153;seniorâ&#x20AC;? that they can â&#x20AC;&#x153;coaxâ&#x20AC;? you into doing as they would like â&#x20AC;&#x201C; like â&#x20AC;&#x153;coochy- kooingâ&#x20AC;? a baby to make it laugh on cue. Making personal remarks to strangers is, of course, rude. My advice to you is to distance yourself from those individuals as quickly as possible. Speaking personally, if I was approached the way you have been, the last thing Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be inclined to do is smile or engage them at all. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be offended, too.

You will have to compromise if you want to achieve anything. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let someone elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s responsibility fall on you. â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026; SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You will be full of good ideas and originality. Put your plans into motion and you will discover more outlets for a service you have to offer. Opportunities will open up if you are receptive. â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026; SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Money may not be readily available to you but a great offer might. You will have to do some fancy financial footwork if you want to pull off a deal that is too good to turn down. â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026; CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Look at the big picture and you will realize you can do a lot more than you first thought. Investments will pay off if you are practical in the way you structure your money matters. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t loan money or possessions. â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026; AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A serious relationship is apparent. Love is in the stars and a commitment will help to stabilize your situation. Your intuition wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let you down. Follow it and you will end up in a satisfactory position. â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026; PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Keep your feelings to yourself until you know where you stand and what everyone else is thinking. Overreacting will lead to a change of plans and a personal loss. You need balance in your life right now. â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026;

nationals was when we beat the reigning champions by 11 points,â&#x20AC;? Newton says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were the reigning national champs for seven years â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lost in 166 straight games â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and we beat them in pool play.â&#x20AC;? That team, the Tigerettes from Louisiana, ended up retaining its national title anyway, but the 21-10 win in pool play was a highlight â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a true â&#x20AC;&#x153;senior momentâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for the High Point team, Newton says.

How intense are the games? Newton remembers the game when Clark, her younger sister, dislocated a finger. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She was on the floor, holding her finger and saying, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Put it back, put it back,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Newton says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So we got it put back and taped it together, and she finished the tournament.â&#x20AC;? Lightfoot, who admits to having played through several jammed fingers herself, says basketball has helped keep her feeling young.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d say itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot better exercise than going to the gym with all those machines,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And the best part is, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just fun.â&#x20AC;? Of late, Newton has been trying to recruit more women to form new teams, but she admits itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been an uphill battle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tough,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;How many old women do you know that wanna play ball?â&#x20AC;?

uestion: When discussing adolescence, why do you focus your comments on parents? It’s the kids who do crazy things.

Dr. Dobson: I’m particularly concerned about idealistic and perfectionistic moms and dads who are determined to make their adolescent perform and achieve and measure up to the highest standard. In so doing, they rock a boat that is already threatened by the rapids. Perhaps another child could handle the additional turbulence, but the unsteady kid – the one who lacks common sense for a while and may even lean toward irrational behavior – could capsize if you’re not careful. Don’t unsettle his boat any more than you must! I’m reminded of a waitress who recognized me when I came into the restaurant where she worked. She was not busy that day and wanted to talk about her 12-yearold daughter. As a single mother, she had gone through severe struggles with the girl, whom she identified as being very strong willed. “We have fought tooth and nail for this entire year,” she said. “It has been awful! We argue nearly every night, and most of our fights are over the same issue.” I asked her what caused the conflict, and she said, “My daughter is still a little girl, but she wants to shave her legs. I feel she’s too young to be doing that, and she becomes so angry that she won’t even talk to me. This has been the worst year of our lives together.” I looked at the waitress and said, “Lady, buy your daughter a razor!” That twelve-year-old girl was paddling into a time of life that would rock her canoe good and hard. As a single parent, Mom would soon be trying to keep this rebellious kid from getting into drugs, alcohol, sex and pregnancy, early marriage, school failure, and the possibility of running away. Truly, there would be many ravenous alligators in her river within a year or two. In that setting, it seemed unwise to make a big deal over what was essentially a non-issue. While I agreed with the mother that adolescence should not be ushered in prematurely,

there were higher goals than maintaining a proper developmental FOCUS timetable. I have ON THE seen other FAMILY parents fight simiDr. James lar battles Dobson over ■■■ nonessentials, such as the purchase of a first bra for a flat-chested preadolescent girl. For goodness’ sake! If she wants it that badly, she probably needs it for social reasons. Run, don’t walk, to the nearest department store, and buy her a bra. The objective, as Charles and Andy Stanley wrote, is to keep your kids on your team. Don’t throw away your friendship over behavior that has no great moral significance. There will be plenty of real issues that require you to stand like a rock. Save your big guns for those crucial confrontations. Let me make it very clear, again, that this advice is not relevant to every teenager. The compliant kid who is doing wonderfully in school, has great friends, is disciplined in his conduct and loves his parents is not nearly so delicate. Perhaps his parents can urge him to reach even higher standards in his achievements and lifestyle. My concern, however, is for that youngster who could go over the falls. He is intensely angry at home and is being influenced by a carload of crummy friends. Be very careful with him. Pick and choose what is worth fighting for, and settle for something less than perfection on issues that don’t really matter. Just get him through it! Question: What would you do if you had an elementary school child in a chaotic classroom with a disorganized teacher? Dr. Dobson: I would do everything I could to get my child reassigned to a different classroom. Some very bad habits and attitudes can develop in 10 months with an incompetent teacher. Home schooling or private education might also be considered, if resources permitted.

Overactive gland raises blood calcium


ear Dr. Donohue: My daughter, 55, has hyperparathyroidism with high blood calcium and some memory problems. Can you give me information about it? My mother had a goiter removed, and my son had an enlarged thymus gland when he was very young. I have taken thyroid medicine for many years. Could these problems have affected my daughter’s condition? – A.L.

and those people have no symptoms. What to do about hyperparathyroidism HEALTH depends on the presDr. Paul ence of Donohue symptoms ■■■ and the patient’s age. If a person has no symptoms and is older than 50, the choice is often made to watch such a person. If the person is symptomless but younger, surgery is the preferred treatment. Surgery is the answer for anyone with symptoms, regardless of age. Usually only one parathyroid gland is producing excessive amounts of hormone and the unaffected glands can remain in place.

Four small parathyroid glands are on the back of the thyroid gland in the neck. They make parathyroid hormone, which regulates the blood level of calcium. When the blood calcium level drops down, parathyroid hormone tells bones to release some of their calcium. Your daughter’s condition has no relation to your mother’s, yours or your son’s ailments. Hyperparathyroidism is an overproduction of parathyroid hormone. Blood calcium level rises. Over time, bones weaken even to the point that they break from a slight injury. Kidney stones might form. Muscles weaken. People become lethargic. They’re not as mentally sharp as they once were. However, all depends on how high the calcium has risen. Many people have only a modest rise,

On the other hand, they happen to people with normal cholesterol levels too. If they’re a cosmetic annoyance, doctors can remove them in a number of ways – with a

Museum takes new look at air, water, land, life BY SUE MANNING ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER


OS ANGELES – Watch maggots munch on liver. Stand in the path of a flash flood. Roam around a kelp forest. Nearly 10 years in the making, the $165 million Ecosystems Experience opened Thursday with its one-of-a-kind view of the world at the California Science Center. And it’s free. Plants, animals and do-it-yourself science take up nearly every inch of the two-story, 45,000square-foot exhibit in Exposition Park, south of downtown. Temperatures, lighting and learning change in the 11 environments on display in this combination aquarium, zoo, school and arcade. The highlight is a 24-foot-long transparent tunnel through a 188,000-gallon tank that puts you face to face with 1,500 horn sharks, swell sharks, giant sea bass, wolf eels, bat rays and other fish swimming in a kelp forest. Most people know kelp as the “slimy stuff covered with flies that piles up on beaches,” said ecology curator Charles Kopczak, aka “Dr. Kelp.” But viewing scores of 20-foot fronds that grow as much as a foot a day is enlightening and awe-inspiring. “The beautiful golden brown color with sunlight filtering through, fish swimming calmly between the fronds, creates a very beautiful image,” he said. Kids amazed or grossed out to learn that kelp can be found in everything from beer to toothpaste to ice cream may also get a charge out of the Rot Room – with its flesh-eating beetles, maggots, camel crickets, sow bugs, millipedes and roaches. “These larvae are ravenous,” said Shawna Joplin, keeper of the arthropods, as she looked in on beetles. The smallest of her charges is an ant and the largest a “really cool,” 8-inch giant Sonoran centipede. Forensic entomology, made popular on shows like “CSI,” “NCIS” and “Bones,” is a huge draw for kids. For example, the beetles are the same used by forensic teams to clean skeletons and the flies are those used to determine time of death. In the Desert and Flash Flood area, a “splash zone” puts you in the path – but out of harm’s way – of a torrent. It all starts with lightning, thunder and a trickle, then 3,500 gallons of water gushes down, smashes

A few feet away, desert tortoises, chuckwallas who sit on heated rocks and scorpions give visitors a close look at desert dwellers. The kelp forest was the biggest challenge to create because salt water had to be hauled by barge and truck, but the critters had to clear red-tape hurdles. Most every fish, animal and organism required a permit or license. “For many insects and things, especially those that like to eat crops, the USDA is very concerned about you having them and the permitting process takes longer than you expect,” Kopczak said. A group of Cub Scouts working on a restocking project donated their young trout to a display in the River Zone, where the fish munch on water striders, giant water bugs and dragonfly nymphs. In the Extreme Zone, visitors learn how species adapt to the harshest of conditions, the Island Zone shows how species behave in isolation, and the Global Zone looks at the way heat, population and wind patterns affect the world. The science center was already the most attended museum in Southern California with 1.4 million visitors a year, said Jeffrey N. Rudolph, president and CEO of the

science center. Ecosystems nearly doubled the exhibition space and Rudolph said they expect at least 2 million people in the coming year. The museum is unique in a lot of ways, but it’s got something shared by a lot of museums these days: debt. The museum still needs $20 million in donations to pay off bonds purchased to build it. Rudolph is confident, though, people will give when they see it. Susan Hackwood, executive director of the California Council on Science and Technology, said the cost was “dollars well spent.”

Anxious dog needs desensitization training D

ear Dr. Fox: I have a 13-year-old rescued dog. He has always hated being left alone in the house. Whenever I leave the house, he gets sad and acts depressed. When I return, he drools, his breathing is rapid, and his anxiety appears to be sky-high. This lasts for about 10 minutes until he finally calms down. My landlord tells me he barks constantly while I’m gone. What can you recommend for treating his separation anxiety? – T.T., Silver Spring, Md. Dear T.T.: Separation anxiety is a common canine problem, and there are various “cures” to try. 1. Give your dog a treat when you leave so he associates your departure with a reward. Stuff an old marrowbone or rubber Kong with peanut butter or cream cheese that’s set hard in the fridge beforehand. You can also try a dog-food puzzle, such as those from Nina Ottosson or Canine Genius. 2. Leave a radio or TV on for “company” and to mask outside noises that may trigger more barking. 3. When you come home, greet him calmly so as not to make your return such an exciting event to anticipate. 4. Try habituation/

desensitization over one weekend, coming and going from your house at ANIMAL irregular intervals DOCTOR of five to 15 minutes. Dr. Michael 5. Get a Fox big crate ■■■ with a blanket to serve as a security den. Keep the door open. 6. Try the dog pheromone DAP or put a couple of drops of essential oil of lavender on a bandana around his neck. 7. Treat him with valerian or passionflower, which this may help reduce his anxiety. The -Eaze calming gel from PetzLife (888) 453-4682 may also work wonders.

and 1 teaspoon sweet potatoes with a little deli turkey. During the day, she is fine for 10 hours without having to go out. She gets walked at least a mile, sometimes two, every day. We let her out before we go to bed (9:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.) and we’re up between 5:30 a.m. and 7 a.m. We would appreciate any suggestion on how to

keep Lulu from having to go out at night. – B. & J.S., Arlington, Va. Dear B. & J.S.: Your dog is getting on in years, and that can mean she is suffering from kidney disease or diabetes, conditions that can make dogs drink more and need to urinate more. I advise a full checkup to rule out any physical cause for her nocturnal

restlessness. If she is physically well, she may be developing age-related cognitive impairment/ canine dementia that can first manifest as nocturnal anxiety. In some instances (also in cats), there is discomfort associated with arthritis, and appropriate treatment, including a warm sleeping pad, will help. Medications such as seligiline and melan-

tonin or herbs such as passionflower and hops can help with nocturnal restlessness. SEND YOUR QUESTIONS to Dr. Michael Fox, c/o The High Point Enterprise, P.O. Box 1009, High Point, NC 27261.

Dr. Zan Tyson examines patient Annie Holleman in the exam room at the Carolina Regional Heart Center.

Matters of the Local cardiologist says cuts could hurt practice, patients BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – While much has been made of the recent health care reform battle, there’s a smaller piece of legislation outside of the bill that Dr. Zan Tyson expects to have a big impact on Tyson his industry. Tyson, a cardiologist at Carolina Regional Heart Center on Westwood Avenue, is a member of the American College of Cardiology, which recently ended a legal battle with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in U.S. District Court in Florida. The ACC filed a lawsuit against Sebelius late last year after she “unlawfully adopted the payment rates for cardiology services in the 2010 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule in a manner that threatens patient access to care and precipitously increases Medicare costs,” according to a statement from the ACC. The lawsuit and several other actions the ACC took against Sebelius regarding Medicare reimbursement rates ultimately were dropped. Tyson said the conflict began when Sebelius adopted lower medical reimbursement rates for 2010 based on the findings of a Physician Practice



Information Survey, or PPIS. The ACC stated the survey didn’t give health officials an accurate picture of the reimbursement needs of cardiologists across the country. “For cardiology, we have been especially targeted (by the cuts),” he said. “We account for about 40 percent of Medicare expenditures

‘...this is not about our income or our salaries. It’s about us being able to maintain the level of care and services we provide for Medicare patients...’ Dr. Zan Tyson Carolina Regional Heart Center because heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S.” The rate cuts will show up in different areas for cardiologists, Tyson said. For example, reimbursement funds for diagnostic tests have been cut by 36 percent. Reimbursement for echo cardiograms also has been cut by 10 percent, he said. The Carolina Regional


The Carolina Regional Heart Center in High Point sees 32,000 patients a year.

Heart Center, part of High Point Regional Health System, sees 32,000 patients a year and has patients from Davidson, Randolph and Guilford County. Because Medicare patients only are required to pay a certain amount of their health care costs, additional costs not covered by Medicare will fall on individual practices, Tyson said. Since those cuts took place, he’s already seeing an effect in the practice. He said prolonged effects could change the way cardiologists utilize technology and some procedures that have decreased the likelihood of dying from a heart attack. “The issue people need to be aware of is that this is not about our income or our salaries,” he said. “It’s about us being able to maintain the level of care and services we provide for Medicare patients because we

won’t be able to afford the bills.” In 1965, 30 percent of people who suffered from a heart attack died. Today, 5 percent of people who suffer from heart attacks die, according to the ACC. “That happened because of the growth of technology, its application and drug development,” he said. “If we can’t pay for those things anymore, they will fall to the wayside.” Beyond the ACC’s legal actions and reaching out to local politicians, Tyson said the only thing cardiologists can do is hope


for better reimbursement rates in the future. “We had Senator Kay Hagan in our office last August,” Tyson said. “We explained all of these things to her. We used all of our political contacts. There’s really nothing else we can do. Let’s just hope that one day, if you go to the hospital having a heart attack, there will still be a specialist there to see you.” The HHS Department did not return requests for a comment on the situation. | 888-3617

Some heart attacks are sudden and intense – the “movie heart attack,” where no one doubts what’s happening. But most heart attacks start slowly, with mild pain or discomfort. Often people affected aren’t sure what’s wrong and wait too long before getting help. Here are signs that can mean a heart attack is happening: Chest discomfort. Most heart attacks involve discomfort in the center of the chest that lasts more than a few minutes, or that goes away and comes back. It can feel like uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain. Discomfort in other areas of the upper body. Symptoms can include pain or discomfort in one or both arms, the back, neck, jaw or stomach. Shortness of breath with or without chest discomfort. Other signs may include breaking out in a cold sweat, nausea or lightheadedness As with men, women’s most common heart attack symptom is chest pain or discomfort. But women are somewhat more likely than men to experience some of the other common symptoms, particularly shortness of breath, nausea/vomiting, and back or jaw pain. Learn the signs, but remember this: Even if you’re not sure it’s a heart attack, have it checked out (tell a doctor about your symptoms). Minutes matter! Fast action can save lives – maybe your own. Don’t wait more than five minutes to call 911 or your emergency response number. Calling 911 is almost always the fastest way to get lifesaving treatment. – Source: The American Heart Association

Questions concern sex addiction, Toyota recall THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Now that sex addiction has found its poster child in Tiger Woods, more people are familiar with the affliction. Yet how it’s treated remains a mystery to many. Curiosity about just what goes on at a sex addiction clinic inspired one of the questions in this edition of “Ask AP,” a weekly Q&A column where AP journalists respond to readers’ questions about the news. If you have your own news-related question that you’d like to see answered by an AP reporter or editor, send it to newsquestions@, with “Ask AP” in the subject line. And please include your full name and hometown so they can be published with your question. You can also find Ask AP on AP Mobile, a multimedia news service available on Internet-enabled cell phones. Go to http:// to learn more.

Q. I have noticed several celebrities linked to sex addiction recently, most notably Tiger Woods. For those who enter sex addiction clinics, what sort of treatment do they receive? Bill Mahl Peoria, Ill. A. Sex addiction treatments resemble those for alcohol or drug addiction. Patients often undergo weeks of inpatient therapy and their aftercare can last several years. Typically, patients’ days are filled with lectures and group ses-

sions. Patients must dress a certain way, address each other a certain way and, most importantly, can never touch another patient without permission. Cell phones are left at home. Spouses are encouraged to join some of the therapy because they are considered part of the overall problem. “These kind of programs are very structured,” Maureen Canning, a clinical consultant for sexual compulsive programs at the Meadows treatment facility in Arizona, told the AP in January. “It’s basically a 12-hour day every day, plus homework.” Once back home, patients’ lives remain very structured so they don’t have the urge or opportunity for unhealthy sex. Usually that involves having someone around to make sure patients stay out of trouble and keep up with their aftercare. At Pine Grove Behavioral Health and Addiction Services in Hattiesburg, Miss., one of the nation’s leading sex addiction clinics, treatment is based on a 12-step program with intense study of such topics as sexual abuse and trauma, addictive relationships and cybersex. Woods has said he’s undergoing therapy, and though it’s been widely reported that he was treated at Pine Grove, he hasn’t ever

Q. Toyota recently recalled approximately 8 million vehicles. How and where do they fix such a great number of vehicles? Is every one of them getting checked? What’s the estimated cost of the fixes for Toyota? Fernando Morales Peoria, Ill. A. Toyota has recalled more than 8.5 million vehicles worldwide – more than 6 million in the U.S. – because of floor mats that can trap accelerators, gas pedals that can become stuck and brake problems on its Prius hybrid. As with any recall, the repairs are being conducted at Toyota dealerships, with Toyota covering the cost. Every vehicle covered by the recall will be getting a fix, Toyota says, but the automaker is staggering the repairs over time because the recall is so large. The automaker has estimated that repairs for the gas pedal recall and lost sales will cost it $2 billion. Dan Strumpf AP Auto Writer New York

Genzyme faces FDA enforcement CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) – Genzyme Corp. said Wednesday the Food and Drug Administration will take enforcement action against the biotechnology company after a series of manufacturing problems stalled production of key drugs. The FDA will likely require that a third party inspect and review plant operations for an extended period of time. Genzyme would also be required to make payments to the government, the company said. Genzyme expects shipments of its top-selling drugs

Cerezyme and Fabrazyme to continue uninterrupted. The company does not yet know the financial impact of a potential FDA action. In June, the company shut down its manufacturing plant in the Boston neighborhood of Allston for about three months to clean up viral contamination that had been slowing down production of Cerezyme and Fabrazyme. The virus was not harmful to people, but the shutdown was costly. During the fourth quarter profit plunged 73 percent to $23.2 million on lower sales.

Then in November, the FDA said it found tiny particles of trash in drugs made by Genzyme, including steel, rubber and fiber. The agency recommended that doctors closely inspect vials of Cerezyme, Fabrazyme, Myozyme, Aldurazyme and Thyrogen. Cerezyme treats Gaucher disease, an enzyme disorder that can result in liver and neurological problems, while Fabrazyme treats an inherited disorder known as Fabry disease, which is caused by the buildup of a particular type of fat in the body’s cells.

UK police: Monitor Internet customers LONDON (AP) – Internet cafe users in the British capital may want to watch what they download. Scotland Yard is advising administrators of public Web spaces to periodically poke through their customers’ files and keep an eye out for suspicious activity. The Metropolitan Police said Thursday that the initiative – which has been rolled out over the past weeks under the auspices of the government’s counterterrorism strategy – is aimed at re-

minding cafe owners that authorities are ready to hear from them if they have concerns about their Internet users. Posters and computer desktop images emblazoned with Scotland Yard’s logo are also being distributed. “It’s not about asking owners to spy on their customers, it’s about raising awareness,” a police spokesman said, speaking anonymously in line with force policy. “We don’t ask them to pass on data for us.”

Still, he said, police were “encouraging people to check on hard drives.” He did not elaborate, saying it would be up to cafe owners to decide if or how to monitor what customers left on their computers. Checking hard drives could reveal what customers were up to fairly easily under the right circumstances, according to Graham Cluley of software security company Sophos. For example, an owner could examine a browser’s Internet his-

tory or sift through the programs or documents the customer downloaded – although distinguishing which user did what might be difficult in a busy cafe. But Cluley noted that a computer-savvy criminal could make their activities invisible in a few simple steps. “You would expect any cybercriminal who had made the decision to use an Internet cafe to pretty much dust off their fingerprints,” he said.

Richard Taylor, a frequent collaborator with Peter Jackson, director of “Lord of the Rings,” poses with a prop gun made by a fellow art designer from New Zealand’s Weta Workshop at an exhibition in Hong Kong. Taylor said Jackson relinquished directing duties to Mexican filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro on the trilogy’s prequel, “The Hobbit.”

Filmmaker Del Toro to give ‘The Hobbit’ a new look BY MIN LEE AP ENTERTAINMENT WRITER


ONG KONG – One of Peter Jackson’s frequent collaborators says the “Lord of the Rings” director passed the torch to Mexican filmmaker Guillermo del Toro to give the trilogy’s two-part prequel, “The Hobbit,” a fresh look. After the huge success of the “Rings” series, Jackson is now working on adapting the J.R.R. Tolkien fantasy novel that takes place before the trilogy. But this time the Oscar-winning New Zealand filmmaker is producing and working on the script, relinquishing directing duties to Del Toro, whose credits include “Pan’s Labyrinth” and the two “Hellboy” movies. Longtime Jackson collaborator, art designer Richard Taylor, said he thinks his friend gave up the director’s chair “probably because he’s spent so long in Middle Earth ... and probably felt a director such

as Guillermo could bring something passionate and unique and original and new to the content for the sake of the fans,” referring

Art designer Richard Taylor said he will stick to a consistent look for the main characters that appear in both the ‘Rings’ series and ‘The Hobbit.’ to the imaginary world where the novels are set. “It’s an absolute delight to be working with Guillermo Del Toro. We’ve all enjoyed his craft as seen in ‘Pan’s Labyrinth’ and the ‘Hellboy’ movies. His unique aesthetic and storytelling style brings a lovely

aesthetic to the world and one we’re enjoying being part of,” Taylor told The Associated Press last week in Hong Kong, where he was attending a digital entertainment conference at the technology park Cyberport. The Weta Workshop president said his team has started designing the landscape and characters, but that he was unclear when shooting on the New Line Cinema production will start in New Zealand. “We’re just patiently waiting for it to begin. It’s been in early development for a while. I’m sure it will get going some time soon,” Taylor said. He said he will stick to a consistent look for the main characters that appear in both the “Rings” series and “The Hobbit.” Taylor, who also won Oscars for his work on the “Rings” series, said he doesn’t know if “The Hobbit” will be released in 3-D, but said the Weta team will take advantage of technological advancements since the first trilogy.

Jerry Springer hosts new dating game show ‘Baggage’ LOS ANGELES (AP) – Jerry Springer is reinventing himself again, this time as host of a dating game series. “Baggage,” debuting next month on the Game Show Network, gives three contestants the chance to win the eye of a prospective date. The hitch: Contestants have to reveal their faults and foibles. Players will carry suitcases onstage to represent the baggage they’ll confess to and defend, GSN said. Among the planned suitors: a shoplifter, a woman who gets advice from psychics and a control freak. Springer, 66, called “Baggage” a family friendly show that’s “just fun and lighthearted. There’s no life-changing issues.”

“I’m like the crazy old uncle,” he said. “People feel comfortable telling me their secrets, that I won’t be judgmental.” After the three contestants are pared down to one, the potential date Springer must own up to a fault of his or her own. Springer’s credits include his longrunning talk show, “The Jerry Springer Show,” as well as “America’s Got Talent,” “Dancing With the Stars” and a Broadway turn last year in the musical “Chicago.” Springer was to begin taping “Baggage” this week. “I just keep finding jobs,” said Springer.

The Louvre’s large new gallery ceiling created by American contemporary artist Cy Twombly is seen during an inauguration ceremony at the museum in Paris.

US artist Cy Twombly creates Louvre ceiling BY ANGELA DOLAND ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER


ARIS – The Louvre’s ceilings already abound with decorative paintings: There are plenty of frolicking maidens, epic battles and racing chariots, not to mention cherubs holding cornucopias. American contemporary artist Cy Twombly had something different in mind – something simple. Twombly, the first artist given the honor of decorating a Louvre ceiling since Georges Braque in the 1950s, came up with a geomet-

Wright and Schiff set for debuts on Broadway NEW YORK (AP) – Robin Wright and Richard Schiff will make their Broadway debut next season in a revival of Lanford Wilson’s Pulitzer P r i z e winning “Talley’s Folly.” Producers Phil Monat, T. Richard Wright Fitzgerald and Randall L. Wreghitt announced last week that the production will open in spring 2011 at a theater to be announced. Marshall Mason, who originally directed the play some 30 years ago, will direct. Mason also directed such Wilson plays as “Fifth of July” and “Angels Fall.” Wright is best known for her roles in such films as “Forrest Gump,” “The Princess Bride” and “Hurlyburly.” Schiff played communications director Toby Zeigler in “The West Wing” on NBC.

ric design – a deep blue background punctuated with floating disks and emblazoned with the names of sculptors from ancient Greece. The 4,300-square-foot ceiling, inaugurated last week, floats over a gallery of antique bronzes like a deep blue sky. It opens up the long gallery but doesn’t overpower it, as was Twombly’s intent. Culture Minister Frederic Mitterrand named the artist a knight in the Legion of Honor at the work’s inauguration, saying the ceiling reminded him of “the sea, allied with the sun.” Twombly, who has lived mostly in Italy

since 1959, is best known for his paintings reminiscent of graffiti or doodling. The color blue is unusual for him. “I got into something new in old age,” he said. The Lexington, Virginia-born artist said he was inspired by the colors he found in a Chinese print as well the blue of early Italian Renaissance artist Giotto, who used paint made from lapis lazuli. “I was just thinking of the blue with the disks on it, it’s totally abstract ... I put all the great Greek sculptors’ names on the top. It’s that simple,” Twombly told The Associated Press.

NEW YORK (AP) – New York City is getting ready to welcome Egypt’s boy pharaoh back to the city he wowed in 1979. An exhibit of artifacts from King Tutankhamun’s tomb will make its final stop in New York starting April 23. It is now at the de Young Museum in San Francisco. The New York exhibit will take place at the Discovery Times Square Exposition. To mark the first day of ticket sales last week, a 25-foot statue of the jackal-headed god Anubis arrived by barge at South Street Seaport.
