TRIAD – Property owners in High Point and Davidson County who suffered damages from the March 28 tornadoes will be eligible to receive state disaster relief assistance, Gov. Beverly Perdue’s office announced Thursday. Perdue issued a state disaster declaration for Davidson and Guilford counties to help pay for home repairs for families who incurred damage from the three tornadoes. Two tornadoes struck parts of Davidson County, while one cut through sections of north High Point. The state disaster declaration means residents who suffered qualified losses can receive grants to help cover housing repair or replacement costs, as well as to pay for replacement clothing and medical expenses. The maximum eligible amount is $29,900 per applicant, the governor’s office reports. The governor’s office also requested and received a U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) disaster declaration, which makes lowinterest loans available to help pay for repairs. The SBA disaster declaration allows low-interest federal loans of up to $240,000 to homeowners and up to $40,000 to renters, the governor’s office reports.

Anyone who doesn’t qualify for the loans may be eligible for a state individual assistance grant, according to the governor’s office. “These were damaging storms that impacted hundreds of families in the Triad area. We’re going to do everything we can to ensure that those residents who suffered losses from the storm will qualify for some type of financial assistance if they need it,” Perdue said.

The High Point Enterprise has asked for general information on how many, or what percentage, of employees live inside the city vs. outside. Thomasville officials have steadfastly refused to release any information concerning residency, saying it is illegal to release information from individual employees’ files.

Truell: Thomasville should be more open THOMASVILLE – A Davidson County commissioner who served 14 years as Thomasville’s police chief said this week he believes Thomasville should be more transparent when it comes to discussions and information about employee residency. Responding to Thomasville’s refusal to release general information concerning the residency of employees to The High Point Enterprise, such as the number of employees who live in Thomasville, Don Truell, who retired as the city’s police chief in 1994, said he still believes local governments should operate openly. “When I operated my police department and all, I believed in transparency,” he said. “Naturally, if you came up and asked me to give you the telephone number for every man I had, no, I wouldn’t do that. However, the questions that you’re asking should be public record, such as residency and how many live out and how many live in (Thomasville).” Truell, a former journalist who

went to work for Thomasville police in 1963, said he was given 60 days to move into the city limits of Thomasville when hired by the department. When he was promoted to chief in 1980 by Thomasville’s city manager, Truell was told again that he would have to live within the city limits, which he already did. “We went to a take-home car plan while I was chief,” he said. “My plan was, if you lived in the city, you could take a car home. If you lived outside of the city, you didn’t take a car home. I did that honestly and mainly to give them an incentive to move into the city.” Ronald Bratton, a Thomasville councilman who retired last year as the city’s police chief after more than 30 years with the agency, said the


Thomasville Police Department’s residency policy “sort of loosened up” over the years. Bratton estimates about 40 percent of Thomasville officers lived in the city when he became police chief in 2006, while about 25 percent lived in Thomasville when he retired. “It wasn’t a large number,” he said. “We are a more of an urban type community now. We have had people who live in Concord or Kannapolis work here.” Current Chief Jeff Insley, a Salisbury resident who replaced Bratton as chief last August, said the Thomasville’s police department’s current policy states that officers should have a working phone so they can be reached when needed, but there is no specific requirement for residency. Insley, who noted that only on-call investigators and K-9 officers can drive their company cars home, said he has chosen to drive his personal vehicle to work every day, as his company vehicle is only for police business. | 888-3657

County reports 6th rabies case ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT


Dusting up In preparation for a media preview of the new North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh, Stacey Kirby, conservation technician, dusts the pollen off of “Naked Muse”, a statue by Auguste Rodin, in a garden at the facility. The 127,000-square-foot expansion opens to the public April 24.

GUILFORD COUNTY – A rabid skunk found on Bunch Road in Summerfield became the county’s sixth case of rabies this week, health officials reported. The skunk had contact with three dogs. North Carolina law requires that all domestic pets 4 months of age and older to have vaccinations against rabies and that their vaccinations are kept current. The law applies even if pets are exclusively kept indoors. Barnyard pets such as goats, horses and cows should also be vaccinated against rabies for their protection against this deadly virus. Unvaccinated pets ex-

Guilford commissioners focus on budget additions BY DAVID NIVENS ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER


GUILFORD COUNTY – Four county commissioners focused sharply Thursday on the additional $6.4 million Guilford County Schools Superintendent Mo Green wants for the 2011 school district budget. Green presented his $651.5 million budget to the Board of Education on Tuesday. The budget includes a request for $187.4 million for the operations budget, up $3.4 million, to cover increased expenses, and $7 million for repairs and maintenance, up $3 million. The district wants the increase in maintenance funds partly to replace money from a discontinued state program. Commissioner Bruce Davis of High Point, joint budget committee co-chair, focused on emergencies, how the district uses the money and how fast. The district has money remaining from the $4 million commissioners provided last year for repairs.

State: $348.2 million Federal: $71.4 million Local: $187.4 million Local capital outlay: $7.0 million Child nutrition: $30.9 million After-school care enrichment services: $6.6 million Total: $651.5 million “Let’s get the $4 million out of the way,” Davis said. “If there is an emergency, then we could look at it when it happens. Maybe we should define an emergency.” Most school buildings are repaired during summers and vacations when classes are not in session. “We’ll use the $4 million,” said school board Chairman Alan Duncan. “We have several emergencies every year.” Green ruled out using a $3 million reserve fund set aside to cover any state givebacks. During the 200809 school year, the state reclaimed

more than $8 million from the school district. “If we did not get the $4 million, we’d be at your door for every emergency,” Green said. “This is a respectful request. We need the funds.” “We don’t want to be pests with this,” Duncan said. Republican Commissioner Steve Arnold of High Point suggested the school board sell vacant buildings to raise money and consolidate some operations with the county. “Everybody else in the county is getting cut, so hold-the-line on the budget is generous,” he said. The additional $3.4 million for operations would cover the cost of enrollment increases and $162,000 for the summer opening of the new $33 million Jamestown Middle School and nearby $10 million Haynes-Inman Education Center. “Last year we did cuts to cover expenses in these areas,” Green said. | 888-3626

State cuts threaten driver education BY DAVID NIVENS ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

GUILFORD COUNTY – A group of county commissioners and educators agreed on one thing this week. The state should continue support for drivers’ education programs in the public schools. The state stopped funding while an effectiveness study was under way. Experts have debated for years whether the train-

ing reduces accidents among teen drivers. School district leaders said the district can’t afford to pay the $1.7 million it would cost to continue the free classes. The Department of Transportation has paid $33 million a year statewide for the program. Meanwhile, legislators have started the debate over whether the money should go to roads as they stare at a possible $1.2 billion budget shortfall.

“If the state does not put the money back, we can’t put it up,” Guilford County Schools Superintendent Mo Green said during a Thursday budget discussion with four commissioners. Teens have taken the courses for decades. “We want our students to be good drivers,” Guilford County Board of Education Chairman Alan Duncan said during a Tuesday school board budget discussion.

“It is a shame to be in this spot.” Many states, including North Carolina, require teens to complete a driver’s education course to get a provisional license. “This will be a hot issue for young drivers,” said Democratic Commissioner Kay Cashion. “I suspect the program will be sustained. We want youngsters trained.” | 888-3626

San Francisco’s Meat-Free Mondays gets shrug



Is your hearing current? 211 W. Lexington Avenue, Suite 104, High Point, NC



SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – Besides approving rules against using plastic grocery bags, mixing recycling with compost, and smoking in sidewalk cafes, San Francisco supervisors have passed a resolution asking residents to observe meatless Mondays. San Francisco su-

pervisors passed the resolution Tuesday for no-meat Mondays in their latest legislative endorsement of healthy, eco-conscious living. It cannot stop the city’s residents from eating meat. Instead, it is meant to call attention to the relationship between diet and climate change.

To some, the resolution is a welcome reminder of the small part that residents play in solving a larger problem. Others, however, were left asking for Board of SupervisorFree Fridays. Most shrugged it off as another one of those “only in San Francisco” initiatives that many forget about soon after passage.

day and 3,099 grains per cubic meter on Tuesday, the Division of Air Quality’s central office reports. Those numbers might seem small compared to the 9,632 grains per cubic meter recorded Tuesday in Winston-Salem, according to the Forsyth County Environmental Af fairs Department. Pollen levels Wednesday in Winston-Salem were listed as “very high” and also surpassed the 9,000 cubic meter mark at one point. Laura Pagano, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service, contributes the increase to heavy rainfalls in the past two months and above-average temperatures that may have jump-started the pollination process. “This year we’ve had a stretch of very dry and very warm conditions,” Pagano said. “It was just during that time that the trees started to bloom, and they started to bloom very fast.” The cold winter also

could have delayed some trees that normally flower earlier in the spring, so that more different tree species are flowering at the same time, said the DENR. The rain that came through the area Thursday night may lower today’s pollen count, weather officials said. “The rain should bring the pollen count down some,” said Andrew Ulrich, a meteorologist with Accuweather. “It doesn’t look like it’s going to be a substantial change, but it should at least wash it off of our cars for the day.” But more dry weather is on its way, leaving little hope for relief next week, Pagano added. “It’s gotten a lot out of its system,” she said about the pollination process, “but we’ll have another stretch of dry weather that will allow it to continue.”

DOT closes bridge over Yadkin River ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

DAVIDSON COUNTY – The N.C. Department of Transportation has closed the Wil-Cox Bridge over the Yadkin River to traffic. DOT officials said the bridge would be closed to traffic as of 3 p.m. Thursday. The closure of the bridge, which the Davidson County Board of Commissioners recently decided to take ownership of, comes

after a special bridge inspection completed Wednesday found exposed rebar, deteriorating concrete and deep cracks in the structure. “Safety is our No. 1 priority,� said Pay Ivey, the DOT’s Division 9 engineer who oversees projects in Davidson County. “As soon as we learned how concerning the problems with the Wil-Cox Bridge were, we made plans quickly to close it down and reroute traffic.�

straints continued to push that project back, the department took a proactive step and scheduled a special inspection to update the analysis of the bridge’s current condition. The monthlong, in-depth inspection began in March and concluded Wednesday. Engineers found conditions had changed significantly enough to warrant closing the bridge. During the closure, a detour will be in place. Motorists

During a routine inspection in December 2008, engineers noted cracks and areas where concrete was coming off the bridge. The DOT determined the findings did not require immediate attention and would not need to be repaired since the bridge was scheduled to be taken out of service as part of the I-85 Corridor Improvement Project. According to a DOT news release, when funding con-

should follow I-85 South for three miles and take Exit 79 to Spencer. Turn right onto Andrews Street and then go about 1.25 miles and turn left onto U.S. 29/70 at the traffic signal. Signs will guide motorists along the route. The department is forming its plan of action for addressing the safety concerns and has not determined how long the bridge will be closed at this time.

Man mistakenly released from prison turns himself in MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

RALEIGH – An Apex man charged with murder who was mistakenly released from prison this month has turned himself in, according to the Wake County Sheriff’s Office. Shortly after 11:00 a.m. Thursday, William Otis “Jabo� Bryant was arrested without incident at his parents’ home on Sheffield Street in Apex. Bryant’s parents had called the sheriff’s department to tell deputies he was at the house. Authorities had been looking for Bryant, who along with his brother is charged with killing a taxi driver in 1999. Wake County sheriff’s deputies and members of the U.S. Marshals Service went to his parents’ house earlier this week. His mother told them Bryant had stayed there the previous three nights but refused to let them in to see whether he was still there, according to court documents. Investigators secured a warrant and returned to search the house Tuesday, but Bryant was not there. In February, Wake sheriff’s deputies charged Bryant and his brother, Eric Reney Bryant, with first-degree murder in the 11-year-old case. William Bryant, however, was being held at the Bertie Correctional Institution, where he was serving time for felony drug convictions. On April 2, Bryant was released from Bertie after serving less than two years. The Department of Correction said it never received notice of the murder charge against Bryant, so it did not notify Wake County to come pick him up.

Apply tighter regulations to drivers of scooters On March 27, a tragic accident claimed the life of a young woman and unborn child when the woman was thrown from the back of a scooter driven by a man who was charged with driving while impaired. Or was it an accident? Is it an accident when tragedy occurs in situations when unlicensed, uninsured people are allowed to operate motor vehicles on our streets after DWI convictions? The slogan at the scooter store should be “DUI? No license? No insurance? ... No problem!” When will the powers that be figure out the insured, licensed, taxpaying citizens in our state are paying for these “scooter people” to menace our roads? The laws must be changed to protect us all from the drunks that continue to find a way to drive. SARAH WALTON Jamestown

Install videotape systems for disciplinary purposes The candidates for election to the Guilford County Board of Education all pretty much agree that one area that needs more attention is that of discipline in the schools. I am one of those candidates. As a former teacher, I can tell you that, in general, parents have more control over a student’s behavior than teachers do. So we must involve parents much more than we do at present. I propose that a teacher-controlled video monitoring system be installed in four or five discipline-plagued classrooms as a test. These systems could be installed at a very nominal cost. When a student undermines and disrupts the learning process of other students, a visual recording of his actions could be used in a meeting with the parents of that

Be careful with drilling compromise


resident Obama seemed clearly in the mood for compromise last week when he announced he’ll lift the ban on offshore drilling for oil and natural gas along much of the eastern U.S. coastline, including off North Carolina’s Outer Banks. Call the president what you wish, but among all the labels, we certainly see shrewd political operator as one that describes him very well. Truth be known, Obama probably detests the idea of once again allowing oil and gas exploration along part of the nation’s coastline. But with this move, he’s surely throwing a political bone to a number of Republicans – including North Carolina’s Richard Burr – and maybe even some conservative Democrats, in hopes they will support other energy and climate/environmental legislation now before Congress and to come. Offshore drilling is a reasonable avenue in a broad approach to achieving energy independence for this nation. Also, this lifting of the ban will have positive economic impact along parts of the nation’s coastline in addition to increasing energy supplies. But just as surely as lifting the drilling ban is a positive action, approval of an energy and climate/environmental bill that is overly restrictive and driven by radical environmentalist theory will have a negative impact on the nation’s economy. Burr, Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and others cannot allow themselves to be roped into supporting bad energy/climate legislation just because President Obama is reaching out to them through offshore drilling. Let’s hope they remember that.

Pitts writes about injustice

I am so grateful to Rep. Brad Miller, D-13th, and others who were courageous enough to stand up for health care reform. This debate has often been framed in terms of taking money away from wealthy to pay for coverage for the poor. I believe that there’s something wrong with a society in which an individual’s right to keep money he doesn’t need is more sacred than another’s right to care (health or otherwise) that he can’t afford. The Christian Bible says that the love of money is the root of all evil, and by passing health care reform, America has shown its commitment to its citizens. DANIEL SHIRLEY Greensboro

Have proper documents when dealing with VA


often am asked “What do I need to file a claim with the VA?” So I just thought it would be a good idea to list the documents that most often might be needed in order to apply for veterans benefits. I know it is easier to start off with this material in hand; the wait time can be long enough without having to send documents in at a later date. When you apply for benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs, be sure you have the following documents with you: • Discharge or DD-214 • Death certificate • Marriage license • Adoption papers • Divorce decree • Military medical records • Birth certificates of children • Civilian medical records. Benefits available to veterans are: disability compensation, pension, free health care, dependency and indemnity compensation (DIC) and many more. All of these documents may not be needed when applying for a specific benefits program. But it’s still a good idea to have them all in one safe, convenient place. Here is another helpful bit of information: Taryn Davis and Nicole Hart are two young military widows who learned that in leaning upon each other they found the strength to build new lives. They started a nonprofit American widows project in 2007, and they reach out to other young war widows. Their Web site is There are so many helpful veterans organizations and groups of volunteers available to help veterans, spouses, survivors and families.

Kyrgyz opposition says it will rule for 6 months BISHKEK, Kyrgyzstan â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Consolidating their victory after a bloody uprising, opposition leaders declared Thursday they would hold power in Kyrgyzstan for six months and assured the U.S. it can keep a strategic air base here â&#x20AC;&#x201C; at least for now. There were signs of instability, though, as deposed President Kurmanbek Bakiyev refused to relinquish power after the revolt, which left at least 75 people dead and hundreds wounded. As he spoke, gunfire broke out after nightfall in the capital, Bishkek. With darkness descending, roving bands of armed marauders trawled the streets of the capital.

Man injured by elephant at Belgrade Zoo

The man had several broken ribs and severe injuries to the abdominal area and chest, but was in stable condition after surgery, Belgrade emergency hospital spokesman Drago Jovanovic said.

Rice said after a closed-door briefing by U.N. peacekeeping chief Alain Le Roy on Sudanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first multiparty elections in more than two decades, set to begin on April 11. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The larger picture is that much is awry in this process, and that is a real concern.â&#x20AC;?

Lunch-only beer policy prompts Carlsberg strike COPENHAGEN â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Scores of Carlsberg workers walked off their jobs in protest Thursday after the Danish brewer tightened laid-back rules on workplace drinking and removed beer coolers from work sites, a company spokesman said. The warehouse and production workers in Denmark are rebelling against the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new alcohol policy, which allows them to drink beer only during lunch hours in the canteen. Previously, they could help themselves to beer throughout the day, from coolers placed around the work sites.

Afghan police: 5 suicide bombers arrested in Kabul KABUL (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Acting on an intelligence tip, Afghan police said they arrested five would-be suicide bombers Thursday as they tried to enter Kabul, thwarting a major attack and capturing the largest such team ever in the capital.

Police believe the bombers were sent by an al-Qaida-linked insurgent group based in Pakistan, and their capture follows widespread rumors that militants were planning attacks in the diplomatic quarter of Kabul.

Mine rescue stalls; teams eager to resume search MONTCOAL, W.Va. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Rescuers running on adrenaline waited Thursday for a massive drill to vent noxious gas so they could safely resume the underground search for four coal miners missing in an explosion that killed 25 colleagues. They had spent more than four hours working their way through the Upper Big Branch mine by rail car and on foot, but had to turn back because of an explosive mix of gases in the area they needed to search. Crews at the surface resumed drilling in an effort to get fresh air into the mine and hoped 32 rescuers could return by about 7 p.m. They had made it within 500 feet of an airtight chamber with four days

worth of food, water and oxygen where they hoped the miners might have sought refuge after the worst U.S. mining disaster in more than two decades. Chris Adkins, chief operating officer for mine owner Massey Energy Co., said the rescue teams were â&#x20AC;&#x153;very angryâ&#x20AC;? when told to abandon the mission, but their safety was paramount. He said the teams are off their feet and resting, but too anxious to sleep. Masseyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chief executive officer, Don Blankenship, continued to defend his companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s record and disputed accusations from miners that he puts coal profits ahead of safety. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To some extent the fact that there were more survivors than those that

are lost suggests that the mine was in pretty good shape relative to what mines would have been in the past and hopefully by todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s standards,â&#x20AC;? he told The Associated Press in an interview Thursday. There were 61 min-

ers in Upper Big Branch when it was rocked by the blast. Despite the increasingly slim chance of finding anyone alive, Adkins said he considers the effort a rescue mission. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I still believe in God, I

believe, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not gonna give up,â&#x20AC;? he said. The rescue crews did not get far enough to see the bodies of the dead or if anyone had made it to the chamber. They knew where the bodies would be because rescuers made it that far

before gases forced them out of the mine after the explosion Monday. Officials were not sure what caused the high gas levels this time but said a drop in barometric pressure as a storm rolled in might be to blame.

of the nicest reduced pieces,” Scott said. “I hope they go for enough money that carvers get some of their value back for it, but I really think it’s going to be a buyer’s market. They may see a $2,000 piece that may be able to get for $1,000. They may see a $800 piece that they can get for $300 or $400.” After the competition, some of the pieces will be placed in businesses in Thomasvillle, according to Scott. “We think we have got the event and something that will help revitalize downtown and help with tourism throughout the year,” Scott said. Scott and Randy Everett, a carver from Colfax, have been promoting the event. “(Randy) has been helping us put this together,” Scott said. “He is a very good carver. This is his living. He gave us eight or nine pieces to put around town to promote our event. He needs to have them around other places selling them, but he is just that nice of a guy.” For more information on the event, contact Scott at 472-4422.

Thirteen carvers from across the country, including several from North Carolina, are set to compete in the first Thomasville Tourism, ECHO Power Equipment Company Chainsaw Sculpting Invitational that is set for Thursday, April 29, April 30 and May 1, said Mark Scott, director of Thomasville Tourism. The event coincides with Thomasville’s annual Spring Daze – an event that attracts about 2,000 people each year and allows vendors to peddle food, crafts and jewelry, “I really think this is going to be a big deal,” Scott said, adding he didn’t know of another such an event in the Southeast. “The carvers are from New York, Ohio and Pennsylvania ...

HIGH POINT – Organizers of Saturday’s Great American Cleanup hope High Point will be a few thousand pounds of trash lighter after this weekend. The event is open to anyone who wishes to volunteer a few morning hours to clean up trash and debris around the city. City officials prioritize target areas that need cleaning – such as trash dump sites in wooded areas, areas along roads that are heavily littered, streams and

lakes – and direct volunteers to those places. Volunteers also can choose where they want to go. Last year, state prison inmates took part and helped clean about 10 miles of roadway. The program that provided the inmates for this type of work has since been eliminated, officials said. “We won’t have 10-mile coverage this year, but we should have a good number of volunteers,” said Melanie Bruton, superintendent of the city’s Material Recovery Facility. “The biggest priority area I have for the spring


The Great American Cleanup is scheduled for Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to noon. Volunteers who wish to take part are asked to meet at the High Point Bank operations center at 1300 E.

cleanup are the main thoroughfares. We want to get those clean before the furniture market.” Last year, 316 volunteers took part and collected 4,180 pounds of trash. They also planted

about 4,000 flower bulbs. Nationally, 64 million pounds of litter and debris was picked up, much of which was recycled. More than 243 million plastic bottles and 6.9 million pounds of electron-


ics were collected. Volunteers kept 14.5 million pounds of aluminum and steel out of landfills and 36 million pounds of newspaper were collected for recycling as well. “It’s a coast-to-coast cleanup, and over 3 million people participate every year,” Bruton said. After volunteers bag the trash, city trucks come to the locations and pick it up. The city disposes of the trash and crews will recycle what they can from the pick-ups, Bruton said. | 888-3531

Sex Pistols’ former manager McLaren dies at 64 LONDON (AP) – The former manager of the Sex Pistols and one of the seminal figures of the punk rock era, Malcolm McLaren, died Thursday, his son said. He was 64. Joe Corre said his father died of an aggressive form of cancer in Switzerland, declining to give the exact location because he said he wanted to avoid a media scrum. “He was the original punk rocker and revolu-

tionized the world,” Corre told The Associated Press in a telephone interview. “He’s somebody I’m incredibly proud of. He’s a real beacon of a man for people to look up to.” The multitalented McLaren rose to fame as the colorful manager of The Sex Pistols, but the art college dropout is also known for the infamous clothes shop he opened on London’s King’s Road.

NC GOP wants national party head to quit


Jenny McLamb (far right), boarding manager and riding instructor at Foxwood Farm, is comforted by friends after a fire destroyed a horse stable at the farm near Chapel Hill early Thursday morning. Thirteen horses died in the fire, though nine other horses in a nearby barn were unhurt.

Fire roars through NC stable, kills 13 horses about 1,000 feet away. “I thought I was having a nightmare. It’s just unbelievable,” said Wheeler, who lives in a house on the farm, which has been a riding school for young girls since 1996. The dead horses had about 10 different owners who boarded the animals at the farm, Wheeler said. Nine other horses in an adjacent stable were removed to safety in a pasture and that building was saved from the fire, Wheeler said. The blaze also consumed about five acres of woods on the property, which ignited easily after days of low humidity and steady winds, Holmes said. “The leaves or any material in

the woods burn real easy right now,” Holmes said. “The tops are dry as powder.” He said a crew of firefighters remained on the scene Thursday afternoon in case strong winds blowing through the area rekindled the blaze. The cause of the fire was not immediately determined. The county’s fire marshal was investigating, and the State Bureau of Investigation had brought out a dog to check for the presence of any fire accelerants, Holmes said. Wheeler said the barn contained no straw and little sawdust, and his barn manager had turned off the lights hours earlier when closing the stables for the night.

Grandma’s late nights take toll on grandkids D

ear Abby: My sister “Carole’s” husband died a year ago, and her oldest daughter passed away four months later. Carole now has her daughter’s two oldest children, ages 10 and 14. Carole has been going out with men she meets on the Internet, drinking and partying on weekends and neglecting the kids. The 10-year-old had been receiving psychological help since before her mom died and was on medication, but Carole has dropped all of this help for the child. The girl had been molested by a relative years ago, and now with her mother gone, she’s not moving forward in school or in life. Some of us are willing to take the children from her. She seems not to care what happens to them. She devotes all her attention to the next guy she can be with. She has left the kids alone all night when she was spending the night with men. I’m not supposed to know this, but my adult niece found out from the kids. What can our family do to bring Carole back to earth and help these kids? – Deeply Concerned in Pennsylvania Dear Deeply Concerned: Bringing Carole back to earth and helping the kids may be two separate issues – and you may not be able to accomplish both. It is possible that Carole would be open to others in the family taking in the children if you approach her as a group and “sympathetically” offer her that option. Explain that you all can see the stress she’s under trying to find herself as a widow and grieving mother. It appears that she is in need of counseling – if she’s open to it. Make it plain that her children would be welcome to stay with you on a temporary or permanent basis. If she agrees, fine. However, if she doesn’t, contact Childhelp USA, which can give you information about agencies that can help. Contact them by logging onto or calling toll-free: 1-800422-4453.

Dear Abby: My son was killed in a car accident five years ago. His wife, who was pregnant ADVICE at the time, gave birth to a beautiful baby boy a Dear few months later. Abby Last month, I received ■■■ a phone call from a woman we barely know who told me – very politely – that she had a “surprise” for me. She then informed me that I have another grandchild, a little girl! She claims my son got her granddaughter pregnant six years ago, and that she had the DNA checked to prove my son was the father. Needless to say, my wife and I were floored. Abby, I don’t know how to react. My wife, who is level-headed, told me not to react right now and to think things through. Do I go to this grandchild with open arms? It doesn’t feel right. The child’s mother has not reached out to us at all. I need your help. – Man With No Plan in New York Dear Man With No Plan: Your wife is an intelligent lady. I, too, find it odd that you would be contacted – five years after your son’s death – by someone other than the child’s mother. The person you should go to “with open arms” is your attorney. If there is DNA evidence, your attorney can help you determine if it’s authentic and what your next move should be. Because you have not heard from the mother, you should not approach the child unless you have first made certain your attention is welcome. DEAR ABBY is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at www. or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

NC legislative panel rolls out draft of ABC bill RALEIGH (AP) – A General Assembly panel examining North Carolina’s liquor system doesn’t sound interested in privatizing sales but want to keep the current local ABC store method largely in place. Instead, the Joint Study Committee on Alcoholic Beverage Control discussed draft legislation on Thursday that would require poorly performing ABC stores to meet profitability or operating efficiency standards or face seizure by the state ABC commission. Some members questionned a proposal that would require no more than one local ABC board per county and force mergers in multi-board counties.

donors upset about his leadership. Fetzer, a former mayor of Raleigh, said local activists have been upset in North Carolina over the past few weeks about Steele’s leadership. He told Steele he should step down because “recent events, regardless of who is to blame, have made it difficult if not impossible for you to lead the party in the direction that it needs to go.” Steele said earlier in the week he would not resign and defended his stewardship of party affairs. He dismissed criticism — some of it centered on spending on flights, limousines and high-dollar hotels — as griping by GOP figures uncomfortable with his “streetwise” managerial style. Responding to Fetzer’s letter, RNC spokesman LeRoy Coleman said Steele “has maintained broad support from RNC committee members, who have been pleased with the proactive measures put in place for greater accountability. Most importantly, the RNC remains focused on raising money and winning elections in North Carolina and across the country this fall.” The national GOP also attempted to rebut Fetzer by releasing comments of support for Steele from Tennessee chairman Chris Devaney and RNC member Bruce Ash of Arizona.

Cunningham gets union backing despite stance RALEIGH (AP) – While two leading Democratic U.S. Senate candidates support a proposal making it easier for unions to organize, a third candidate who won a major union endorsement is taking a more conservative stance. Cal Cunningham said in an interview with The Associated Press that he supports elections as the sole way for there to be unions created, but opposed so-

called “card check” organizing. He clarified in a later interview that he would be open to hearing arguments about “card check” but felt it could not pass. The laborbacked idea would allow workers to form a union by signing cards instead of by secret ballot. The Teamsters recently endorsed Cunningham. Candidates Elaine Marshall and Ken Lewis both said they support card check organizing.

CHAPEL HILL (AP) – Thirteen horses died in a raging barn fire early Thursday that the owner of a riding school and boarding center first thought was a nightmare come to life. The fire was reported at 3:37 a.m. at Foxwood Farms, about 15 miles northwest of Chapel Hill. The blaze had burned through the barn and the horses were dead by the time the first of about 40 volunteer firefighters arrived about 10 minutes later, said Orange Grove Fire Chief Tommy Holmes. Layton Wheeler, who owns the stables, said he awoke early Thursday to his dog barking, then ran to the window of his home to see flames shooting from the barn

RALEIGH (AP) – The head of the North Carolina Republican Party asked Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele to step down Thursday, saying the resignation is the only way to end scrutiny of the national party over lavish spending. A day earlier, national party leaders had a conference call with Steele but didn’t bring up the prospect of his resignation — seen as a positive sign for the embattled national chairman. North Carolina’s Tom Fetzer is the first state party chairman to call for Steele’s resignation, a spokesman for Fetzer said. Fetzer said the move would ensure Republicans maximize gains during the mid-term elections. “I believe that the best service you can render to your party at this critical juncture is to graciously step aside and allow the party to move on from this current quagmire,” Fetzer wrote in a letter to Steele. Steele, who has been a lightning rod for criticism since taking the job last year, has come under renewed scrutiny recently after the committee paid a nearly $2,000 bill at a sexthemed nightclub in Los Angeles. The RNC fired a staffer it blamed for the outing. Also this week, Steele accepted the resignation of his chief of staff and allowed one of his senior advisers to leave in an attempt to reassure GOP

Republicans gear up for run at Obama



Authorities: Texas bomb suspect mad at Fed TYLER, Texas â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A man accused of dropping more than 30 explosive devices into mailboxes and other locations across east Texas did so out of anger toward the government and was acting alone, federal authorities said Thursday. Larry Eugene North was indicted Wednesday on charges of possessing an illegal firearm or destructive device. Authorities said they would evaluate whether to pursue more charges. Authorities believe North is responsible for planting 36 devices between Feb. 5 and Wednesday, said Robert R. Champion, an agent with the federal Bureau of Alcohol.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Let the 2012 race begin. Little more than a year into President Barack Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first term, Republicans considering a challenge to the Democrat in his re-election bid were gauging their political strength at the first GOP candidate â&#x20AC;&#x153;cattle callâ&#x20AC;? far from Washington â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the three-day Southern Republican Leadership Conference. Yet as Sarah Palin, Haley Barbour, Newt Gingrich and several others gather in Louisiana, they face a stark reality: The Republican Partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s task will be tough no matter who wins the GOP nomination. Toppling Obama is all but certain to be difficult, judging by history. Only five times in the last century has an incumbent lost

Man with cleaver shot by cops in Sikh temple CLEVELAND â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A man entered his Sikh temple in suburban Cleveland early Thursday, raised a meat cleaver near two members preparing for morning prayers, and was shot and killed by police, authorities said. Police donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe Ravinder Nijjar, 41, of Bedford, had a religious motive for his behavior at the temple, where he worshipped, Police Chief Greg Duber said.

3 girls in bullying case plead not guilty HADLEY, Mass. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Lawyers for three teenage girls accused of participating in the bullying of a 15-year-old girl who committed suicide entered not guilty pleas Thursday on their behalf to charges including civil rights violations and criminal harassment. Ashley Longe, Sharon Chanon Velazquez and Flannery Mullins, all 16, did not appear in Franklin-Hampshire Juvenile Court for their arraignments.

He was summoned to the courthouse by family members of the suspects. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These three had nothing to do with nothing; I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know why they locked them up,â&#x20AC;? the stepfather said of Gregory Leary, 20; Timear Lewis, 19; and a 17-year-old whom authorities have not identified because of his age.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The man charged with threatening House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was so livid over the health care overhaul that he made at least 48 calls to her offices and homes, leading the Democrat to fear that her family might be in danger, federal prosecutors said Thursday. Gregory Lee Giusti, 48, of San Francisco cried and looked disheveled in a gray

T-shirt and khakis as he appeared for the first time before Magistrate Judge Bernard ZimGiusti merman, who said Giusti may have bipolar disorder and should be receiving treatment. Zimmerman initially refused a request by Giusti to be released to a halfway house.

Official: Diplomat was headed to meet jailed terrorist WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A Qatari diplomat was on his way to an official visit with an imprisoned al-Qaida sleeper agent when he touched off a bomb scare by slipping into an airline bathroom for a smoke, officials said Thursday as the diplomat prepared to leave the U.S. The diplomat, Mohammed Al-Madadi, was going to pay a consular visit to the prisoner, said Alison Bradley, a public relations executive hired to speak for the Qatari

Embassy, and a State Department official. The prisoner, Ali AlMarri, a citiAl-Madadi zen of Qatar, is serving eight years after pleading guilty last year to conspiring to support terrorism. Al-Marri was arrested after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, accused of being a sleeper agent researching poisonous gasses and plotting a cyberattack.

Consular officials frequently visit foreigners held in the United States to make sure they are being treated well. Bradley said Qatari diplomats have made multiple visits to AlMarri in prison since he pleaded guilty. The right to such visits is guaranteed by international agreements, and the U.S. Bureau of Prisons had approved this visit by Al-Madadi in advance, Bradley added. Questions remained

About a minute and a half later, as the plane was speeding down the airportâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main runway, there is the sound of a flap handle being pulled followed by an audible warning alerting pilots to a problem with flaps of the Bombardier regional jet. If flaps are not properly positioned, a plane may not

have enough lift for takeoff. The captain immediately tried to abort the takeoff, the transcript shows. The plane the ran off the end of the mountaintop runway, halting only about 100 feet short of the edge of a steep hillside. None of the 30 passengers and three crew members aboard was injured.



Blood poisoning is often fatal ear Dr. Donohue: My mother passed away a few years ago. On her death certificate, it stated that the cause of death was sepsis. Can you give me some information on it and what causes it? – P.R.



Sepsis, also known as septicemia, is popularly called blood poisoning. Bacteria or the toxins (poisons) they make get into the blood and pose a grave threat of death. Around 700,000 Americans develop sepsis yearly, and of that number, at least 30 percent die in spite of heroic efforts to fight it. Signs of sepsis are a high temperature, a rapid heartbeat, panting for air and a rise in the white blood count. The patient is often quite confused. If the offending bacterium can be recovered from the blood, an antibiotic effective against that germ is given in large doses. Sometimes, when a bacterium cannot be identified, antibiotic combinations have to be given based on the most likely germs involved. Even with treatment, some patients go on to develop septic shock – a drop in blood pressure accompanied by organ failure. The kidneys stop making urine. Liver cells die. The heart pumps weakly. The mortality rate from septic shock is very high, even when treatment is given to restore blood pressure and minimize organ damage. You probably wonder how the bacterium got into the blood. That















question cannot always be answered. At times, it can be a bacterium that’s part of the HEALTH colon’s bacterial Dr. Paul populaDonohue tion, and ■■■ it enters the blood through some minor breach in the colon wall. Or a person might have a hidden abscess from which bacteria spread into the blood. Or an illness that saps the immune system of its strength might allow bacteria to proliferate in the blood. Dear Dr. Donohue: I am still hoping to see in your column why a woman should not use talcum powder on her privates. You stated that it could cause cancer. – M.B. Dear Dr. Donohue: If a woman can’t use talc, what can she use? – W.B. Talc dusted on the genitals can migrate upward to the ovary and possibly give rise to cancer. The risk is small, and the possibility is slim, but why take any chances? If a woman feels it necessary to use a dusting powder, use one with cornstarch. Dear Dr. Donohue: I am a 47-year-old woman in good health. I am 5 feet 7 inches and weigh 145 pounds. I have a pretty active lifestyle. I

play tennis twice a week and do Pilates two to three times a week. However, I have a lot of cellulite on my legs and buttocks. It seems that diet and exercise do not help. I understand that cellulite is due to toxins in fat cells. Is this true? Could it be a circulation or constipation problem? – M.M. The only difference between cellulite and ordinary fat is that cellulite has a dimpled appearance. It’s not due to toxins, bad circulation or constipation. One explanation is that fibrous bands that hold skin to deeper tissues crisscross fat and produce the lumpy appearance of cellulite. This is a genetic thing. Another explanation has it that tiny blood vessels in fat become damaged. Those vessels leak fluid that puckers the fat into cellulite. Most cellulite appears on the thighs, hips or buttocks. Exercising leg muscles promotes muscle growth, which can smooth out cellulite. Weight loss is a necessary ingredient too. Dear Dr. Donohue: Peanuts are grouped as nuts. Isn’t that a mistake? – N.B. Peanuts are legumes, pods with seeds in them. Who cares about the classification? A peanut by any other name would taste as great – a direct quote from William Shakespeare (private communication).




Kate Gosselin returning to TLC with new twist which collapsed last fall as the couple’s marriage fell apart. This week, Jon Gosselin sued his ex-wife for primary custody of their eight children. Gosselin’s attorney, Anthony List, has previously accused Kate Gosselin of neglecting the children because she appears on ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars,” a charge her attorney rejected as “patently false.”

Wife of Prince Charles breaks her leg


In this 2009 file photo, Britain’s Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, arrives for a visit of Sanssouci Castle in Potsdam Germany.

LONDON (AP) – Camilla, the wife of Prince Charles, has broken her left leg while hiking in Scotland, royal officials said Thursday. The 62-year-old royal was walking in the hills Wednesday when she slipped and fractured the leg, Clarence House said in a statement. The break was confirmed by an X-ray Thursday. Clarence House said that while Camilla would be wearing a plaster cast for the next six weeks, she still intended to carry out her official engagements. Clarence House declined to say at which hospital the Duchess of Cornwall was being treated or where exactly she fell. Camilla has been staying at Birkhall, Prince Charles’ private home on the queen’s Balmoral estate in Scotland. He and Camilla typically spend their summers there, fishing and walking in the Scottish countryside, according to Charles’ Web site.

NEW YORK (AP) – Calling her new venture “the network built on great intentions,” Oprah Winfrey says her sleeves are rolled up to make the Oprah Winfrey Network “all that I know it can be.” What will those great intentions look like? Speaking to

media buyers Thursday at a presentation by partner Discovery Communications, Winfrey filled in a few of the gaps that have left people wondering just what her round-theclock network will be since she announced it in January 2008.

She took her audience through a dozen or so new shows planned for OWN after its launch next Jan. 1, and offered reassurance that she would be appearing on the 24-hour network she’ll also be guiding from behind the scenes.

Mark Kerrigan’s “reckless actions and complete disregard for his father’s safety and well-being” led to his death, District Attorney Gerry Leone said. “This defendant should have known that the cruel acts that he committed against his elderly father, including grabbing him by the neck with enough force to cause a fracture, were highly likely to result in substantial harm and endanger his father’s life.”

Pat Ray shows off a room full of items donated to Saturday’s yard sale for Serving God’s Servants.

Serving those who serve others Pat Ray wants to lend ministers a hand BY JIMMY TOMLIN ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER


IGH POINT – After decades of being one of God’s servants, the Rev. Pat Ray felt a new calling on his life – serving God’s servants. Thus was born in late 2004 the aptly named Serving God’s Servants, a nonprofit ministry – founded by Ray and his wife, Margaret – that assists people who are either in full-time Christian ministry or preparing for the ministry. “For years, I’ve loved to help other people – missionaries, preachers, people in Christian ministry – so this just seemed to be a real natural thing for me to do,” says Ray, the former longtime pastor of Woodlawn Baptist Church. Specifically, the ministry provides assistance in three areas: • Temporary housing for those who are ministering in the Triad. • Food assistance for Bible college students and other Christian servants. • Cars that have been donated and refurbished for use by those in the ministry. “I was praying about this, listing the things I love to do more than anything else,” Ray says. “I zeroed in on these three things – groceries, automobiles and housing – and I asked God if He would allow me to work on those three things. Within just a few days, I had the name – Serving God’s Servants.” Ray draws no salary from the ministry and Margaret does the bookkeeping, which allows more funding to go directly into the ministry itself, according to Ray.



Serving God’s Servants will sponsor a fundraising yard sale Saturday, from 7:30 a.m. until 2 p.m., at 208 Green Point Court. Items include a wicker sofa with end tables, recliner, occasional chair, sofa, bedroom suite, mattresses and boxsprings, three dining tables, six chairs, an exercise bike, a kitchen double-sink, books, clothing, toys and other miscellaneous items. Proceeds will benefit Serving God’s Servants, a nonprofit organization that serves people who are in full-time Christian ministry or preparing for Christian ministry. For more information, call Pat Ray at 869-9259 or 847-0270, or e-mail him at cray86@triad. The ministry’s Web site is www. One area the organization has targeted is helping students at Bible colleges in North Carolina, such as John Wesley College in High Point, Piedmont Baptist College in Winston-Salem, and others. “We give a lot of grocery baskets at Thanksgiving and Christmas,” Ray says, explaining that the ministry provides laundry baskets stocked with $50 worth of groceries – primarily nonperishable staples – as well as a $50 grocery gift card and a $25 or $35 gift card to Walmart or Target. “We give at other times, too,”


Ray continues. “If we hear of a need, then we give, but it’s mostly at Thanksgiving and Christmas.” Serving God’s Servants also provides temporary housing and refurbished automobiles for people involved in Christian ministry. “We’ve provided 20 vehicles in five years,” Ray says. “We receive donated vehicles, get them in good shape, fill them up with gas and give them away.” According to Ray, the ministry is funded through memorial gifts, as well as individual, corporate and church donations. The organization also sponsors occasional yard sales to raise additional funds, such as the one that will be held Saturday at the Rays’ home. Ray says Serving God’s Servants fills a need that he perceived within the field of Christian ministry. “When people go into the ministry, because of God’s calling on their life, sometimes they leave good-paying jobs, and sometimes Christian ministries don’t pay as well as other professions,” Ray says. “Don’t get me wrong, because I have loved the ministry, but there are needs sometimes because of that. I’m sensitive to that need because I grew up in such a large family (he’s one of 10 children), and because we (he and Margaret) both went to Bible college and were helped by others. I just saw a need for this ministry, and I can do in turn what others did for us.” | 888-3579

A movie about traumatic brain injury and a discussion with a panel of neuroscience experts from Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center and the Brain Injury Association of North Carolina will be held Monday at 6:30 p.m. at Big Shotz Tavern on S. Stratford Road, WinstonSalem. Admission is free. The movie is “Post Concussion,” an award-winning 2000 release that portrays one man’s journey after a serious head injury. Panel members who will lead the discussion following the movie are Dr. David Lacey, (neurorehabilitation), Dr. Charles Tegeler, (neurology), Mike Tytell, Ph.D., (neurobiology and anatomy), all from Wake Forest Baptist, and Susan Fewell, outreach coordinator for the Brain Injury Association of North Carolina. The event is part of “Neuroscience and a Movie,” an outreach series sponsored by the Wake Forest University Brain Awareness Council, a group of graduate students from a variety of scientific disciplines. The council’s mission is to encourage neuroscience education in the community and to expand the community’s overall familiarity with basic science research. The event is geared toward adults, but throughout the year the council also visits local schools and museums to share knowledge about the brain with students of all ages and to cultivate a desire for higher learning.

Friday, April 9, 2010 CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Kristen Stewart, 20; Leighton Meester, 24; Keshia Knight Pulliam, 31; Cynthia Nixon, 44 HAPPY BIRTHDAY: There are more options than you realize. Consider some of the things you have done in the past and implement them into what you are trying to do now. You will find a way to utilize all your skills to the fullest. Offer help to someone you know has something to give you in return. Your intuition will guide you down a path that will help you gain confidence and greater status. Your numbers are 4, 10, 19, 22, 28, 37, 43 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Do something special for someone you are trying to impress. Expect to face jealousy if you present an idea that is well-received by your peers and colleagues. Holding back to spare someone’s feelings will not help either one of you. ★★★★ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You cannot expect others to do things the same as you. Try new things and visit new places. The knowledge and experience you pick up will help you put a relationship you have with someone into perspective. ★★ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Give whatever you do your best shot and don’t worry about the people who don’t appreciate what you have to offer. Resentment will mount if you are in competition with someone. Don’t let pettiness stand in your way. ★★★★★ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Keep the past where it belongs. Loss, anger and upset will get the better of you if you dwell on things you cannot change. Look forward with optimism. Change is upon you -- embrace it. ★★★ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Do not deviate from the truth or someone will question where you got your information. A money matter will be riddled with emotional deception and the possibility of loss. Be upfront about how and what you are doing. ★★★ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You may have to use a bit of force to get your way but, in the end, you will achieve what you set out to do and others will be thankful for your efforts. Don’t let the changes someone makes upset your plans. Stay on course. ★★★ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Your savvy, sophisticated way of dealing with others will win favors from acquaintances but may annoy those closest to you. A money matter should be cleared up to ease tension between you and someone you care about. ★★★★★ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Emotional troubles will escalate if you haven’t been pulling your weight. Find a way to surprise the person who means the most to you. Your vision and help will revive some of the lost charisma you shared. ★★ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You may find it easier to upgrade your skills and pursue a higher position. Overreacting to a situation you are faced with will only make matters worse. A job you had in the past may be perfect for you now. ★★ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): If you feel a deal being offered isn’t right for you, say so. Back away from anyone pushing you to become a partner in a project that doesn’t interest you. Put your time, effort and energy into your own projects. ★★★ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Self-deception will lead to mistakes. View your life objectively if you want to move in a positive direction. Hanging out with people who are a poor influence will cause confusion and upset the people who love you the most. ★★★ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You may have to check references or do a background check on someone you aren’t certain you can trust. Avoid inconsistency. Don’t share your plans until you are 100 percent sure you are going to follow through. ★★★





In the Blue Ribbon Pairs at the ACBL Fall Championships, South often got to open one spade, North bid two spades, and many Souths then jumped to four spades, perhaps taking too dim a view of the slam prospects. North might have had 7 5 4 3, K 6 5, K Q 2, 8 7 3, and even the actual North hand offered a play for slam. When West led a diamond, South won with the ace and cashed the A-K of trumps, dropping East’s honors. South next took two winning heart finesses.

DIAMOND RUFF When East discarded, some Souths took the ace of hearts, returned a club to the ace and ruffed the last heart in dummy. But if South led a club next, East won and gave West a diamond ruff, holding South to 11 tricks. After the second heart finesse wins, South must lead a diamond. West can’t gain by ruffing since South can save dummy’s king for a club discard. If the king wins, South takes the ace of hearts, comes to the ace of clubs, ruffs a heart, ruffs a diamond high, draws trumps and makes a vital second overtrick.

DAILY QUESTION You hold: S 8 7 3 H K 8 6 5 2 D 2 C Q 5 4 2. With neither side vulnerable, your partner deals and opens one heart, and the next player bids two diamonds. What do you say? ANSWER: Bid four hearts, not because you expect partner to make it (though he may if he has a good hand) but to make it hard for the opponents to assess their prospects. For instance, if you let left-hand opponent bid spades cheaply, the opponents may find that they’re cold for four spades. East dealer Neither side vulnerable


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

Dash to the finish line H

ard hats outnumbered batting helmets. Paint rollers were in view instead of slow rollers making their way across the diamond. The heavy hitters gave way to the heavy machinery still out there grading the infield dirt – just seven days before the debut of the Winston-Salem Dash at BB&T Ballpark. “It’s every day changing, and with SPORTS the anticipation of opening day, cerSteve tainly adrenaline Hanf is going to carry ■■■ us through,” Dash team president Geoff Lassiter said during a media gathering Tuesday. “But we’re certainly excited.” The advanced Class A affiliate of the Chicago White Sox opened the Carolina League season Thursday night at Kinston. The big opening, however, comes Tuesday when the Dash plays host to the Potomac Nationals – a long-awaited day considering the ground-breaking ceremony for the project came in October of 2007. A much-publicized feud between current Dash owner Billy Prim and former partner – and brotherin-law – Andrew Filipowski led to work on the stadium stopping for part of 2008 and much of 2009. Prim then asked Winston-Salem officials for another $15 million in funding to finish the project on top of the city’s initial $12 million investment. That – and the still-unresolved issue of parking around the stadium – rankled many city residents, but Tuesday’s game is a sell-out, and the last few hundred tickets remaining for the opener were sold online in 25 minutes earlier this week. “It’s now reality that we have a brand-new, state-of-the-art, $48-million stadium in downtown Winston-Salem – that has had some bumps along the way,” Las-

ing ON the field should be pretty good, too. “They’re going to be able to enjoy a ball club that goes out and plays hard,” McEwing said. “The fans are definitely going to enjoy watching.” Twenty-two players on the 25-man roster played on a strong Kannapolis Intimidators crew in the low-A South Atlantic League last summer. Catcher Josh Phegley, a supplemental firstround draft pick last summer, is the 11th-ranked prospect in the White Sox organization according to Baseball America. Third baseman Jon Gilmore is another first-rounder, taken by Atlanta in 2007 and sent to the White Sox as part of the 2008 Javier Vasquez trade. Infielder Seth Loman also figures to thrill the fans again after clubbing 23 homers last summer. The pitching rotation includes lefty Justin Edwards and righthander Nevin Griffith, both of whom are recovering from Tommy John surgery to repair ligament damage in their elbows. Right-hander Dan Remenowsky went from an undrafted free agent from Division III Otterbein (Ohio) College to one of the franchise’s best bullpen prospects. He went 7-3 with 24 saves and a 1.99 earned run average last year in Kannapolis. McEwing, who enjoyed a nineyear big-league career with four different clubs, said he likes his DON DAVIS JR. | HPE team and is eager to hit the field. Especially this field.

Carolina lands 2011 NHL All-Star game


Let’s talk turkey This is a sure sign of spring and a sight to gladden the heart of any turkey hunter. Gobblers fanned out as they try to impress a flock of hens. The gobblers are getting revved up as turkey season approaches. Saturday will be opening day in those counties that have a season. This flock of birds was attracted to a feeder. Those must be turned off at least two weeks before the season arrives to be a legal hunting area. Good luck and happy hunting!

RALEIGH (AP) – The NHL awarded the 2011 All-Star game to the Carolina Hurricanes on Thursday, coming through on a pledge commissioner Gary Bettman once made to the franchise. “You have all been asking me for years when the All-Star game was coming to Raleigh,” Bettman told a crowd of about 1,000 Hurricanes fans who packed the RBC Center’s lawn. “I did make a promise a number of years ago. So, today, I will fulfill that promise.” Next year’s game originally was to be played in Phoenix, but when the Coyotes filed for bankruptcy, the league re-opened its

options. Bettman estimated that 14 teams applied either to host All-Star games from 2011-13 or upcoming NHL drafts. Telling the other franchises that “your time will come,” Bettman said awarding the game to Carolina “is a testimony to the strength of this franchise.” Bettman credited the Raleigh area for making the improvements to the infrastructure. He cited a renovated airport terminal, a new 500,000-squarefoot convention center that opened in September 2008, and the addition of nearly 800 four- and fivestar hotel rooms in the past three years.




ow that I’ve had a few days to think about it, I’m more convinced than ever. Duke’s heart-stopping 61-59 victory over Butler ranks as the best national championship game I’ve seen in the last 30 years. Seven ties, 15 lead changes and the game was played within a three-point window either way for nearly 37 minutes. Duke’s biggest lead was six – for about 30 seconds. Butler’s biggest lead was two. And the final 15 seconds featured two near-misses on potential game-winners by Butler’s Gordon Hayward. Whew!

Apparently, television viewers shared my interest. Twenty-four million viewers watched this epic. That’s the largest TV audience for a national-title game since 1999, when Connecticut nipped Duke in another memorable final watched by 26.3 million. I’ve thought long and hard about this, and rating NCAA championship games for startto-finish drama and intensity since 1980, I’d put this one first, North Carolina’s one-point win over Georgetown in 1982 at No. 2 and N.C. State’s amazing upset of Houston in 1983 at No. 3.

All three provided unforgettable action and suspense and I can see a strong case for putting them in any order. Granted, there were other terrific finals during that span. Villanova’s upset of Georgetown in 1985, Kansas’ overtime win over Memphis in 2008 and Indiana’s onepoint victory over Syracuse in 1987 just missed my top three. For pure possession-for-possession excitement, I’ll put Duke-Butler up against any of them.

In 31 seasons on the bench, Don Nelson has clashed with players, management and ownership, leading to much debate about the legacy he will leave when he finally walks away. There is no arguing this: ol’ Nelly is the NBA’s winningest coach. Nelson surpassed Lenny Wilkens on the career list with win No. 1,333 in the Golden State Warriors’ 116107 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves late Wednesday. Nelson’s career started in 1976 when he took over the Milwaukee Bucks 19 games into the season. He has also coached in Dallas, New York and with Golden State twice, but has never made it to the NBA finals.

Woods back, better than ever to start Masters AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Tiger Woods played like the last five months never happened. Even more surprising, he felt that way, too. No longer the same person after he was caught cheating on his wife, Woods looked every bit the same golfer Thursday when he opened with a 4-under 68 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; his best first round ever at Augusta National â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that left him only two shots behind 50-year-old Fred Couples on an extraordinary opening day at the Masters. It just didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem that way to Woods. Standing on the first tee, looking down a fairway lined with thousands of spectators curious to see how he would respond to a sex scandal that shocked the world, Woods didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t flinch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It felt normal,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Try to hit a little fade off the first tee, try to take something off of it and make sure I got it in play. That was about it. From there, I just went about my business.â&#x20AC;?

KY 31 Fescue . 50 l b $

Indeed, he was the same Tiger. He pledged to control his emotions on the course, yet there was little change. Woods twirled his club after a good drive, slammed it after a few bad ones. He pumped his fist after making the first of two eagles and sunk to his knees when he missed a birdie putt on the 16th that slowed his climb up the leaderboard. And just like always, he complained about not making enough putts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Otherwise, it could have been a very special round,â&#x20AC;? Woods said. Yet it was special in so many ways. Couples, who played a practice round with Woods on Monday, sauntered along in tennis shoes and no socks and shot a 6-under 66. It was his best score ever at the Masters and made him the oldest player to be the outright leader for any round. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I never really thought about what I was shooting,â&#x20AC;? said Couples, who already has won three times this year on the 50-and-older Champions Tour. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a fun day for me. I still think I can play, and if I

putt well Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to be some kind of factor in my mind.â&#x20AC;? Tom Watson, at 60 the oldest player in this Masters, picked up from his amazing ride at last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s British Open with a bogey-free round of 67 that left him tied with Lee Westwood, Phil Mickelson, PGA champion Y.E. Yang and K.J. Choi. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My goals were to play better than Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve played in the last five or six years, and I achieved that â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for the first round,â&#x20AC;? Watson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m playing pretty well. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve said I have to play better than 90 percent to be successful on this golf course.â&#x20AC;? Still, this day was always going to be about Woods. He had not hit a competitive shot in 144 days, since winning the Australian Masters on Nov. 15 for his 82nd victory around the world. A four-time Masters champion, he has never come to Augusta National with so much uncertainty â&#x20AC;&#x201C; about his game, and mostly how fans would respond to a player whose image had been shattered by tawdry tabloid tales of sex.

AT WILSHIRE WINSTON-SALEM â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Ledford won the Davidson County championship by 13 shots and actually had five players earn all-county status after Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 18hole match at Wilshire Golf Club. The Panthers covered the par-71 layout with a 302 to best North Davidson (315). Central Davidson took third at 321, followed by West (322), East (334) and Thomasville (406). Will Essick highlighted a 1-2-3 finish for Ledford, shooting a 3-over-par 74 to best Taylor Ray by one shot and Chad Miller by two. Northâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jordan Fritts, also with a 76, was the only player to stand in the way of a Panthersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sweep, as Aaron Abts finished fifth with a 77.

Providence Day shot a 299 for a 17-shot win over Wesleyan, which returns to action Tuesday at Tanglewood against the Forsyth Home Educators.



AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A glance at Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first round of the Masters: Leader: Fred Couples, who shot a 6-under 66. Just behind: Five players were a shot back, including Phil Mickelson, Tom Watson, K.J. Choi, Y.E. Yang and Lee Westwood. Whereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tiger? Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back, shooting a 68 in his return to competition for the first time since he was sidelined by a sex scandal. Woods carded two of the dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nine eagles. Senior moments: Couples is 50 and plays on the senior tour. So does Watson, who is 60. Youth movement: Matteo Manassero, an amateur from Italy who is the youngest player in the field at age 16, shot a 71. Television: Today, 4-7:30 p.m., ESPN.

Gomes sends Reds home happy with home run THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CINCINNATI – Jonny Gomes hit a solo homer with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning Thursday, sending the Cincinnati Reds to their first win of the season, 2-1 over the St. Louis Cardinals. Gomes connected on a 2-2 pitch from Jason Motte (0-1), brought into the game to face him. Francisco Cordero (1-0) pitched a perfect ninth in relief of Bronson Arroyo, who went the first eight innings and singled home a run. After scoring 17 runs in the first two games, the Cardinals managed only four hits in the series finale, including Matt Holliday’s first homer. Brad Penny, who signed a one-year, $7.5 million deal last December with the Cardinals, gave up six hits and one run in seven innings.

NEW YORK – Nate Robertson pitched five solid innings in his first start for Florida in eight seasons, and the Marlins beat the New York Mets 3-1 on Thursday night to win their season-opening series. Jorge Cantu hit a tiebreaking RBI double in the fifth and Gaby Sanchez added a runscoring double in the sixth for Florida, which took the last two of the three-game set after losing 7-1 on opening day. The Mets wasted an effective outing by Jonathon Niese, who made his first start at Citi Field since he tore his right hamstring during a victory over St. Louis last August.

Willis, plagued with chronic wildness during his shortened 2009 season, walked the first batter he faced on four pitches. But the former two-time National League All-Star issued only one more base on balls and had four strikeouts, giving up two runs on seven hits.

Staal leads Hurricanes past Montreal, 5-2 RALEIGH (AP) – Eric Staal had three goals and two assists and the Carolina Hurricanes beat Montreal 5-2 on Thursday night to prevent the Canadiens from clinching a playoff berth. Chad LaRose had two goals and two assists in his first career four-

point game. He and Staal scored 31⁄2 minutes apart in the second period to help the Hurricanes win their second straight. Brian Gionta and Marc-Andre Bergeron scored for Montreal, which could have wrapped up a postseason berth with one point but

instead lost its second straight. Bergeron pulled the Canadiens to 32 with 16:57 left with a blast from the blue line 21 seconds after Staal’s second goal. LaRose made it 4-2 by tapping in Staal’s rebound with 2:38 left. Staal then polished off his 10th career hat trick with an empty-netter.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – Brad Stevens is content to keep coaching the Butler way. The 33-year-old coach, who came within a buzzer-beating shot of winning the NCAA men’s basketball championship, signed a 12year deal Thursday that extends through the 2021-22 season. Team spokesman Jim McGrath declined to say how much the deal was worth, though Stevens had a total compensation package of $750,000 last season. Athletic director Barry Collier acknowledged Tuesday that Stevens was in line for a pay raise. The Bulldogs got the man they wanted to stay. “Brad has demonstrated that he’s the right fit for Butler University,” Collier said in a statement. “Our program has grown under his leadership, and we’re excited about our future under his direction.” Stevens is expected to answer questions at a news conference Friday morning. The move should end, at least temporarily, speculation that Stevens would jump to a BCS-conference school. Jobs at Oregon, of the Pac-10, and two ACC schools, Clemson and Wake Forest, are open. But Stevens had said Tuesday that he would speak with Collier, a Butler alum and former head basketball coach, before entertaining thoughts of leaving. Collier never gave Stevens, one of college basketball’s best young coaches, a chance to reconsider.

Vanderbilt’s Ogilvy enters NBA Draft NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Vanderbilt junior center A.J. Ogilvy will skip his final season and enter the NBA Draft. The Commodores announced Thursday that the 6-foot-11 Sydney, Australia native will also hire an agent in advance of the June 24 draft, ending his collegiate eligibility. Ogilvy was an AllSoutheastern Conference honorable mention this season and averaged 15.3 points and 6.7 rebounds per game in his three-year career. Also, Penn State junior guard Talor Battle is entering the NBA draft. Battle said Thursday he won’t hire an agent, meaning he has until May 8 to decide to withdraw his name from consideration and return for his senior season.



Swaim stands alone atop Caraway points BY GREER SMITH ENTERPRISE SPORTS WRITER

New Orleans’ James Posey (41) and Charlotte’s Raymond Felton race for a loose ball in the final minute of their game in New Orleans on Wednesday night. The Bobcats won 104-103 to clinch the first playoff berth in team history.

Bobcats savor playoff breakthrough NEW ORLEANS (AP) – D.J. Augustin’s clutch shooting, so familiar to basketball fans in his hometown of New Orleans, sent the Charlotte Bobcats into uncharted territory: the NBA playoffs. Shortly after congratulating the current Louisiana state champions from his old high school, Augustin hit three 3pointers in the fourth quarter, including one with 16 seconds left to give Charlotte the lead for good in a dramatic 104-103 victory over the Hornets on Wednesday night. That secured the first playoff berth for the Bobcats, in

their sixth year since joining the NBA and first with Michael Jordan as their majority owner. “Great year,” Augustin said. “The Bobcats have never made the playoffs and it’s historic. But we want to stay focused and get ready for the playoffs and try to go farther than just the first round.” Stephen Jackson scored 29 points for Charlotte, which blew a 26-point lead and trailed by as much as eight in the fourth quarter. Bobcats coach Larry Brown termed the Bobcats’ victory, “a miracle.”

“I’m not a happy man,” Brown said, more annoyed about the blown lead than pleased by the late rally. “I’m happy for our fans. I’m happy for our franchise. I’m a coach. I always say, ‘Celebrate the wins because the losses hurt.’ That (performance) hurt.” New Orleans’ last lead was 100-99 after Darren Collison’s driving layup with 44 seconds to go. Neither team scored again until Augustin’s big 3. Collison had a chance to tie it, but his leaner in a crowd of defenders in the lane missed in the final seconds.

Travis Swaim is alone at the top again. Swaim took over sole possession of the points lead at Caraway Speedway by winning a 150-lap late model race last Saturday. He is six points ahead of Brad Brinkley, who was tied with Swaim coming into the night and now stands third. Jason York, who finished third, is another two points behind. Dan Moore finished second. Harrison Rhodes of High Point was seventh, with Pete Stewart of Sophia ninth. Josh Lowder made it two wins in two Limited Late Model races. Junior Kendrick of Thomasville finished second and moved into second in the standings, six points behind. Keven Wood remained unbeaten after two Legends Car races. Darrin Free won the Pure Stock race and tied second-finishing Perry Haines for the points lead. Ray Chriscoe got his first Super MiniTruck victory as second-finishing Scotty York took the standings lead from Glenn Chriscoe. A 60-lap Sportsman race is set as the feature this Saturday. The late models return on April 17.

Airlines operate fewer on-time flights NEW YORK (AP) — The Department of Transportation says U.S. airlines operated fewer on-time flights in February, as massive snow storms hampered operations at some of the largest East Coast airports. Sixty-one flights were delayed for at least three hours during the month— triple the number of those delays in January. It was the highest number of 3hout tarmac delays since August 2009.

Tech recovery may be under way

Jobless claims rise unexpectedly WASHINGTON (AP) — The number of newly laid-off workers seeking unemployment benefits rose last week, a sign that jobs remain scarce even as the economy recovers. The increase also may result from the difficulty the Labor Department has in seasonally adjusting the claims around the Easter holiday, which falls on different weeks each year. “This is ... a volatile time when the numbers move around quite a bit,” a department analyst said. The Labor Department said Thursday that firsttime claims increased by 18,000 in the week ended April 3, to a seasonally ad-

justed 460,000. That’s worse than economists’ estimates of a drop to 435,000, according to a survey by Thomson Reuters. California also closed its state offices for a holiday on March 31, which likely held down the claims figures. On an unadjusted basis, claims rose by 6,500 to nearly 415,000. Initial claims have dropped four out of the past six weeks and many economists say they are likely to soon resume their decline. “Not everything goes in a straight line,” Jennifer Lee, senior economist at BMO Capital Markets, wrote in a research note. “Definitely not the claims data.”

Separately, retail sales jumped last month as warmer weather and the Easter holiday brought out shoppers in droves. Discounter Target Corp., department store Macy’s Inc., clothier Gap Inc. and Victoria’s Secret parent Limited Brands Inc. posted double-digit increases that beat Wall Street analysts’ expectations. Overall, sales in stores open at least a year rose 9 percent in March, based on an index of 31 retailers compiled by the International Council of Shopping Centers. The stock market dipped in midday trading. The Dow Jones industrial av-

erage fell 16 points while broader indexes also edged down. Economists closely watch unemployment insurance filings, which are seen as a gauge of layoffs and a measure of companies’ willingness to hire new workers. The four week average, which smoothes volatility, rose to 450,250. Two weeks ago, the average fell to its lowest level since September 2008, when Lehman Brothers collapsed and the financial crisis intensified. Jobless claims peaked during the recession at 651,000 in late March 2009. The figures underscore that the job market remains weak even as the economy

Retail gains continue

NEW YORK (AP) — A new study says the technology industry has started to recover from the economic downturn and will see worldwide growth this year. Forrester Research said Thursday that the fourth quarter marks a turning point worldwide, setting the stage for growth in 2010. Forrester expects the U.S. information technology market to grow by 8.4 percent this year to $550 billion. The worldwide tech market, meanwhile, will grow by 7.7 percent to $1.6 trillion.

Boeing delivers 108 jetliners in 1st quarter SEATTLE (AP) — Boeing Co. says it delivered 108 commercial jets in the first quarter of 2010. The number announced Thursday is down from 121 jets in first quarter 2009 and 122 for the fourth quarter of last year. Boeing Commercial Airplanes spokesman Jim Proulx (Proo) says that’s due to normal variation and customer needs. He also points out that Boeing stopped delivering 747s late last year, as it starts building the new and larger 747-8.

Yum CEO earns 45% less in 2009 CHICAGO (AP) — The CEO the company that owns KFC, Taco Bell and Pizza Hut received compensation the restaurant company valued at $9.6 million during the most recent fiscal year, a decrease of 45 percent as sales edged down, according to a regulatory filing. David Novak, who is also chairman and president of the Yum Brands Inc., earned $17.4 million in 2008.


recovers. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said Wednesday that high unemployment is one of the toughest challenges the economy faces. While layoffs have slowed, hiring is “very weak,” he said. “We are far from being out of the woods,” Bernanke said in a speech in Dallas. “Many Americans are still grappling with unemployment or foreclosure or both.” On a more positive note in the Labor Department’s report, the tally of people continuing to claim benefits fell by 131,000 to 4.55 million, the lowest level since December 2008.


Former Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin, who was a senior adviser and chairman of Citigroup during the mortgage and financial crises (right) and former Citi Chief Executive Officer Charles Prince, prepare to testify on Capitol Hill on Thursday.

Citigroup execs face grilling WASHINGTON (AP) — Robert Rubin, a senior adviser to Citigroup Inc. at the time of its deep losses from subprime mortgages, and former CEO Charles Prince said Thursday they learned belatedly that Citi had $43 billion in high-risk securities on its books. But the head of an investigative panel pressed them on why they didn’t monitor the bank’s growing risk-taking and why it wasn’t brought to their

attention earlier despite frequent management meetings. The high-risk securities were deemed safe, and they were not discussed at those meetings before September 2007, Rubin said. He was testifying at a hearing by the panel investigating the roots of the financial crisis. Rubin, Prince and other former Citigroup executives have been sharply criticized for allowing heavy investments in

high-risk mortgage securities. Citi was a major subprime lender. They said they didn’t learn until September 2007 that the bank had held onto the investments composed of repackaged mortgage bonds. The next month, Citigroup publicly estimated it would lose $8 billion to $11 billion in the fourth quarter that year from those securities. A $43 billion bet “may

sound like chump change” for a company of Citigroup’s size, but it was a significant exposure to risk, the chairman of the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission, Phil Angelides, told Rubin and Prince. Rubin, a former Treasury secretary, insisted: “There isn’t a way ... that you’re going to know what’s in those (bank) position books,” he said. “You really are depending on the people who are there to tell you.”

Judge awards families over Chinese drywall NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A New Orleans federal judge on Thursday awarded seven Virginia families $2.6 million in damages for homes ruined by sulfuremitting drywall made in China, a decision that could affect how lawsuits by thousands of other homeowners are settled. It remains to be seen how

the plaintiffs can collect from Chinese companies that do not have to respond to U.S courts, although some have talked about getting orders to seize U.S.-bound ships and cargoes from the drywall companies. Thousands of homeowners, mostly in Florida, Virginia, Mississippi, Alabama and Louisiana, have

reported problems with the drywall, which was imported in large quantities during the housing boom and after a string of Gulf Coast hurricanes. The drywall has been linked to corrosion of wiring, air conditioning units, computers, doorknobs and jewelry, along with possible health effects.

U.S. District Judge Eldon Fallon ruled Thursday that the drywall needs to be removed and the plaintiffs’ homes need to gutted because of the ruinous effects of corrosion. He said all electrical wiring, the heating and air conditioning system and other household fixtures damaged by corrosion would have to be removed.

NEW YORK (AP) — Warmer weather and an earlier Easter enticed shoppers into stores for spring merchandise in March, helping retailers post strong sales gains for the month. Discounter Target Corp., department store Macy’s Inc., clothier Gap Inc. and Victoria’s Secret parent Limited Brands Inc. posted double-digit increases that beat Wall Street analysts’ expectations. Overall, sales in stores open at least a year rose 9 percent in March, based on an index of 31 retailers compiled by the International Council of Shopping Centers. Sales in stores open at least one year are an important measure of retailers’ health because they exclude the effects of stores that open or close during the year.

Cigarrette taxes rise in 14 states ATLANTA (AP) — Fourteen states, the nation’s capital and the federal government hiked their cigarette taxes last year, but health officials worry tobacco company discounts are keeping prices down. State increases ranged from 10 cents per pack in North Carolina to $1 in Connecticut, Florida and Rhode Island. But manufacturers devote billions of dollars of their marketing and promotional spending to reducing cigarette prices. Health officials say raising the price of cigarettes is one of the most effective ways to discourage people from smoking.

Apple sells 450,000 iPads in a week CUPERTINO, Calif. (AP) — Apple CEO Steve Jobs says the company has sold 450,000 iPads since its launch Saturday. Jobs, looking thin in his signature black turtleneck, jeans and wirerimmed glasses, gave out

the information at Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino, Calif., on Thursday as the company was releasing details of its next operating system for its iPhone and iPad. The company earlier said it sold more than

300,000 iPads on its first day, though that included pre-orders and units shipped to retail stores such as Best Buy but not necessarily purchased right away. That figure was in line with analysts expectations.




A United Airlines jet takes off from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport in Seattle in April 2008.

US Air, United may join forces MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — News that United Airlines and US Airways are in talks about combining was met with approval by shareholders and analysts Thursday. Passengers may feel differently, however, if a combination ends up leading to higher airfares. Shares of both companies rose in morning trading. US Airways gained 83 cents, or 12.2 percent, to $7.65, and United Airlines parent UAL Corp. rose $1.38, or 7.3 percent, to $20.33. News that two airlines are talking broke Wednesday afternoon.

EU plan fails to halt Greek crisis ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Greece’s borrowing costs spiked to a record high Thursday, intensifying the country’s debt crisis and suggesting a eurozone and International Monetary Fund rescue plan is providing little support for Athens’ struggle to avoid default. The higher interest rates demanded by bond investors are potential poison for the Greek budget; unless they fall, the government will pay a massive premium to borrow and face a vicious cycle where higher borrowing costs fuel fresh default fears.

Energy prices slide across the board NEW YORK (AP) — Energy prices headed lower Thursday as the stock market sagged and natural gas storage levels rose for the third week straight. Benchmark crude for May delivery fell 22 cents to $85.66 barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

QVC licensed for Smithsonian jewelry WASHINGTON (AP) — The Smithsonian Institution said Thursday that it has licensed its renowned gem and jewelry collection to create a line of bracelets, brooches and other baubles with the TV shopping network QVC. The jewelry line expected to launch this fall will be based on the National Gem and Mineral Collection at the National Museum of Natural History, which includes the famous Hope Diamond and Marie Antoinette earrings among 375,000 specimens.

ers have tried for combinations in the past. United Chairman and CEO Glenn Tilton and US Airways Chairman and CEO Doug Parker were both involved when their companies talked about a tieup in 2008. They walked away then citing high fuel prices, but didn’t rule out a future deal. That same year, Continental Airlines Inc. rejected United’s attempt at a combination. Neither airline has confirmed the talks. It’s far from certain that a deal will actually take place. Antitrust regulators would have to clear

it, and pilots from different unions would have to be integrated. Still, “the merits of a potential (United-US Airways) marriage are considerable, in our view,” J.P. Morgan analyst Jamie Baker wrote. UBS analyst Kevin Crissey wrote that he thinks a major combination such as United-US Airways would reduce capacity as much as 3 percent, mostly in the U.S. With fewer seats and competition, fares should rise, he wrote. Travelers wouldn’t like that, but money-losing airlines would.

Geithner visits Beijing amid dispute BEIJING (AP) — U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner met with a Chinese vice premier Thursday and discussed economic ties in a sign the two sides might be trying to cool their rhetoric in a dispute over China’s currency controls. In a statement after their meeting, the Treasury Department did not say whether the two sides discussed currency. And phone calls to China’s Finance Ministry were not answered. But Geithner had been expected to press Washington’s case for Beijing to ease exchangerate controls that critics say distort trade and keep China’s currency artificially low. An undervalued Chinese currency makes Chinese goods cheaper for American consumers but hurts U.S. exporters

by making their products more expensive in China. Geithner, who stopped in Beijing after a twoday visit to India, left for Washington after the meeting. The decision to hold such a high-level encounter suggested Washington and Beijing are trying to narrow their differences over currency, which threaten to overshadow cooperation on the global economy, Iran’s nuclear program and other issues. “The two sides exchanged views on U.S.China economic relations, the global economic situation and issues relating to the upcoming economic track dialogue of the second U.S.-China Strategic and Economic Dialogue, to be held in Beijing in late May,” the Treasury statement said.

Pace executives to face creditors MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

WINSTON-SALEM — The top executives of a failed Pace Airlines Inc. will face creditors, including potentially more than 400 employees, for the first time on May 3. Edwin Allman III, the U.S. bankruptcy trustee in the case, has filed subpoenas with William Rodgers Sr., the chairman, chief executive and co-owner of the airline, and Darrell Richardson, its president. The meeting will take place at 9 a.m. in the creditors meeting room of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court,

226 S. Liberty St. in Winston-Salem. The majority of the more than 500 creditors are former employees of the company, along with government tax and transportation agencies, customers and suppliers. “At a first creditors meeting, a company’s top officers will appear, be put under oath and give testimony,” Allman said. “They will be asked what went wrong with the company and caused the bankruptcy. We will take about the assets of the company and why some were transferred in the manner they were.”

Strong retail report boosts stocks NEW YORK (AP) — The stock market recovered from an early slide after an increase in retail sales overshadowed concerns about Greece’s debt problems and the job market. The Dow Jones industrial average finished with a gain of 30 points after being down 53 points. Broader indexes also rose. The market turned higher around midday after sales gains at the nation’s major retailers raised expectations for the economy as well as the corporate earnings reports that start to arrive next week. Improved weather and an early Easter lifted sales at stores open at least a year by 9 percent, based on results from 31 retailers compiled by the International Council of Shopping Centers. The stock market began the day lower following drops overseas. Greece’s borrowing costs rose to a record level Thursday, signaling that a rescue plan from other European countries and the International Monetary Fund might not be enough to prevent a default. The Dow rose 29.55, or 0.3 percent, to 10,927.07. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 3.99, or 0.3 percent, to 1,186.44, while the Nasdaq composite index rose 5.65, or 0.2 percent, to 2,436.81. Advancing stocks narrowly outpaced those that fell on the New York Stock Exchange, where volume came to 1 billion shares.

Climate talks could pick up from failed summit BONN, Germany (AP) – Climate change negotiators convening this weekend are hoping to renew momentum on a new global warming treaty after setbacks at the Copenhagen summit four months ago – but the talks could easily turn into a round of recriminations. Delegates from 175 countries begin a threeday meeting in Bonn, Germany, today with an open session meant to be a stocktaking. But it could turn bitter over blame for the failure to deliver a firm agreement in the Danish capital on limiting manmade emissions of greenhouse gases, the cause of the Earth’s rising average temperatures. The biggest environmental summit in history, attended by 120 world leaders, was rescued from total collapse in its final hours with a frantic round of diplomacy led by President Barack Obama and a few dozen other heads of government. The main task this weekend is to set a schedule of talks for the rest of the year leading up to another major conference in Cancun, Mexico, starting Nov. 29. “If they are serious, they have to put together a work plan that will deliver,” said Kaisa Kosonen, a climate policy adviser for Greenpeace. “It’s not the number of meetings, but the mandate of those meetings, what they are trying to achieve.”

EU satellite to check climate impact on ice DARMSTADT, Germany (AP) – The European Space Agency launched a new high-tech satellite Thursday to measure the effects of global warming on Earth’s polar ice and gather data on rising sea levels, information that could prove crucial to millions on the globe’s coasts and islands. ESA said at its European Space Operations Center in Germany Thursday it received a signal from CryoSat 2 after it took off on a Russian launcher rocket from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, meaning lift-off was successful. “So far, everything went fantastically,” said Volker Liebig, ESA Di-

of the mission, which has been eagerly awaited by glacial scientists since the late 1990s. “If anything, this mission is even more impor-

tant now than a decade ago when we first proposed it,” as changes in Earth’s polar ice sheets are accelerating, said Duncan Wingham of University College London, CryoSat’s principal investigator. ESA said the 700-kilogram (1,543-pound) CryoSat 2 is designed to pinpoint the effects of global warming on the Arctic and Antarctic ice, which cover about ten percent of Earth’s surface and prove crucial for the Earth’s climate. “The polar regions work like the refrigerators of the climate system,” German glacial scientist Heinrich Miller explained.

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) – Discovery’s space station visit took a sudden pop-cultural turn Thursday when one of the four record-breaking female astronauts went on talk radio from orbit to chat about her career, iPod selections and even her hairdo. Stephanie Wilson was a good sport as she answered questions from nationally syndicated talk show host Tom Joyner, whose shows Wilson are broadcast on blackamericaweb. com. He noted there are more women in orbit right now than ever before, then asked: “Did you get your hair done before you went up in space?” Wilson threw back her head and laughed. “Of course, I always try to represent NASA as best I can,” she said. “So hopefully, I’m looking pretty good.” Wilson, among only a handful of black women to fly in space, turned serious when answering Joyner’s questions about how she got into “the business of space shuttling” and how parents can encourage their children to follow her example. The 43-year-old engineer said it was important to study hard and be exposed to as many opportunities as possible, in order to “dream big dreams.” She’s one of three women who flew up on Discovery and joined one already at the International Space Station, making for the biggest female crowd ever to circle the planet.
