WINSTON-SALEM – The Rev. Ronald B. Wilkins, when officiating weddings, often surprised the bride, groom and congregation by singing “The Lord’s Prayer� in a clear, ringing baritone so moving it drew tears from many. Wilkins The act was typical of Wilkins, a minister and city councilman from 19972008, who died Friday night at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center following years of declining health. He was not afraid to break from tradition to touch lives. “He was truly a man of the people and one of my favorite people,� said local attorney Bobby McCroskey, who, with his wife Lorie, was one of those surprised, moved couples in 1993. Regardless of his official role, Wilkins, who would have turned 54 Saturday, left his mark as a friend and advocate for many. “Ron served in public office for all the right reasons,� said Tom Terrell, an attorney and Wilkins’ friend for 35 years. “He was a champion for citizens without a champion in government, and he lived with them and walked down the same streets.� “I think I can speak for the many people who knew Ron and admired him,� said High Point Mayor Becky Smothers. “We have lost a good friend.� Wilkins was pastor of East Grimes Avenue Baptist Church, a non-paying position, and was employed by the city. He gave up the city job to represent Ward 2 on City Council, and he had little money. High Point historian Glenn Chavis said he and Wilkins often disagreed politically, but Chavis credits Wilkins for championing issues such as housing and fair treatment by landlords for low-income people and affordable, widespread public transportation. “You have to experience something in order to appreciate being able to use it,� Chavis said. “If you don’t have a car, if you live 4 miles from a grocery store, Ron understood those things. When he spoke, you could just tell he could fully understand what it’s like not to have a bus token.� Realtor and friend Ed Price remembers Wilkins similarly. “I don’t know many people that would give up a good paying job to become a public servant,� Price said. “I don’t know many people who put public service above money. “But I’ll tell you one thing, he’s redone the bus system in heaven; I guarantee you.� In a January 1986 story in The High Point Enterprise, Wilkins said, “At my funeral I want my epitaph to read, ‘Nothing deterred him on a mission from God.’ �

A 5-letter word that often gets 4-letter word connotation Before you read...


In 2004, the city hired The Ferguson Group, a Washington, D.C., lobbying group, to look after High Point’s interests at the Capitol. While the move was unsettling for some at first, city officials now can point to huge dividends they say would not have been possible without that extra voice on Capitol Hill. This three-part series looks at Washington lobbying as a new trend for city governments, the need for such lobbyists, and the realized and potential rewards.


HIGH POINT – When High Point first considered hiring a Washington, D.C.-based lobbyist, City Councilman Chris Whitley was skeptical. He didn’t like the idea of the city being associated with the lobbyist trade and some of the controversial aspects of beltway politics, such as pork-barrel spending projects. So when the city enlisted The Ferguson Group in 2004 to help bring in untapped federal dol-

lars, he was watching closely to see how the firm performed. “Of course, I’m not a big fan of earmarks and I hope they go away,� said Whitley, a council LOBBYING since 1992 ON THE HILL member and the current mayor pro tem. A new “When we first approach hired them, we did to city a six-month congovernment tract. They jumped ■■■ right into the ball game and started laying out what they were going to do. Quite frankly, I would say with The Ferguson Group, we’ve been fairly well successful in receiving federal dollars.� Whitley isn’t alone among city leaders in this view. Last month, the City Council (minus absent members Latimer Alexander and Mike Pugh) voted unanimously to renew the city’s contract with The Ferguson Group for one year at a cost of $120,000. City officials say the $673,000 High Point has paid the firm since it was retained in 2004 has been money well spent, bringing in millions of federal dollars to the city. “I am a very clear and strong

believer in the need for High Point to have a Washington lobbyist. They are a necessary part today of managing a city,� said City Manager Strib Boynton. “The truly important policy and financial decisions affecting High Point are really made in Washington and/or Raleigh, as much as one may like to think they are made here.� Boynton recently updated the council on what The Ferguson Group has produced, claiming that, for every dollar of city money paid to the firm, High Point has seen $44 in federal authorizations, appropriations and grants, for a total of about $29.5 million in federal funding. Among the major projects Boynton attributed, in part, to the lobbyists’ efforts: The Interstate 74/ U.S. 311 Bypass, the Airport Area Roadway, the Furniture Market Transportation Terminal and a lead-based paint control grant. “The transportation terminal is a classic example of that. Without their help, I don’t think that would ever have come about,� Whitley said. “Right now, in a tight budget, anything is a big expense. But when you consider what they’ve done for us, I think it’s well worth the money.� | 888-3531



HIGH POINT – Why do cities need federal lobbyists when their congressional representatives have staffers who are employed to help them get the most for the areas they represent? Those who favor the arrangement argue that the game has changed, and High Point had to adapt to the times to access untapped federal dollars. They say congressional staffers simply don’t have the resources to comb through the federal budget and find grants and other funding sources for a

Providence students renovate barn

Shadybrook Elementary hosts registration


RANDOLPH COUNTY – Providence Grove High School students are doing their part to preserve agricultural history thanks to a boost from Campbell Soup Co. Students with the FFA program are helping preserve a 1946 cattle barn on the Providence Grove site that’s used as a learning resource to teach animal science classes and other hands-on agricultural skills. Students began painting and renovating the barn Friday and Saturday. Campbell Soup is a national partner with the FFA, formerly known as Future Farmers of America. Through the partnership, Campbell again this year sponsored the Help Grow Your Soup Program. Through the program, Campbell took nominations from FFA groups across the country for notable barns to be considered for preservation. The nominees were narrowed down to five through an online vote. Providence Grove’s barn is among the final five. More than 375,000 votes were cast for 10 nominated barns in need of preservation. Built as a cattle barn in 1946, the Providence Grove barn was sold to the school after the Randolph County Board of Education determined it would be a beneficial

HIGH POINT – A series of home heating oil tank spills have occurred in High Point this year due to a string of robberies, according to the Guilford County Department of Public Health. The health department issued an announcement Friday indicating that four spills from home heating oil tanks have been reported since January. The spills occurred when thieves took the tanks, probably for the oil left inside or the copper wire from oil lines, a statement said. The spills could lead to major environmental contamination of the soil, the surface or the ground water. Contaminated ground water can damage the drinking water supply. Two of the four reported spills have been cleaned up, and two are in the process of being cleaned, said Lynne Beck, media relations manager and commu-

nity health educator for the health department. Spill clean-ups have to be paid for by the property owner, she said. The rash of home heating oil tank spills related to the thefts is a new situation the city hasn’t seen before, Beck said. “This is a unique situation,” she said. “The calls that have come in come through 911 because they are tied to theft. Currently, we’ve only had these situations in High Point. It isn’t that High Point has never had spills before, but as it relates to people stealing oil tanks, it is a bit unique.” The High Point Police Department is investigating the thefts. There was no word on whether the four crimes were related. The spills can cost thousands of dollars to clean up, and most homeowners insurance policies do not cover the spills, according to the health department. The department advises owners to keep a close eye




If your home heating system includes an above ground heating oil tank, regularly check the tank (including the legs that support the tank) for leaks and rust. Rust will cause the legs to collapse and the tank to fall or leak. This check should be done yearly, before the tank is used for the season. Some heating oil companies will do this tank check for an additional fee. If you have converted to a different heating system and no longer use the above ground oil tank, have the oil pumped out and dispose of the tank properly. The oil company may buy back the remaining oil or will properly and safely dispose of the oil for you.

Body exhumed in mysterious death case BENNETTSVILLE, S.C. (AP) — South Carolina investigators will exhume a woman’s body for an autopsy eight months after her family raised questions about how she died. The Charlotte (N.C.) Observer reported Saturday that the mother of Brandy Simmons has been trying to get investigators to look into her daughter’s death in July. Originally, officials and family members thought Simmons died of an an-

eurysm after a fall in her home. But after the funeral, Simmons’ teenage daughter said her father had hit her mother. The newspaper reported that an attorney for Vander Simmons Jr. said his client would not comment on the case. Brandy Simmons’ mother, Cornelia White, has temporary custody of her daughter’s two children and hopes an autopsy will answer lingering questions about her death.

Helmand’s governor, Gulab Mangul, confirmed the arrests at a news conference, saying those held included three Italians and six Afghans.

There was no immediate indication of whether any other evidence implicated the three, and their names were not immediately available.

to completely sideline any one political bloc. “All the blocs must participate,� Qomi said at a news conference in Baghdad. “It must be comprehensive.� Former Prime Minister Ayad Allawi’s Iraqiya bloc, which drew on heavy Sunni support, came out two seats ahead in the national vote. But neither Allawi’s list nor the Shiite-led bloc of incumbent Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, which came in second, got enough support to govern alone.

Crews begin removing bodies from coal mine MONTCOAL, W.Va. (AP) – Crews on Saturday began the bleak task of carrying bodies out of a coal mine shattered by an explosion that left 29 men dead, only hours after families’ hopes were crushed when they found out none of the workers survived. It had been an excruciating week for friends holding onto faint hopes that their missing miners were somehow alive. Seven bodies had already been removed soon after the blast Monday at AP Massey Energy Co.’s UpTammy Gobble (left) is embraced by Sheri McGraw of the Red Cross as she reacts to the news Saturday that rescue per Big Branch mine, the workers located the four missing bodies deep in a West Virginia coal mine, dashing any faint hopes of finding sur- worst U.S. coal mining divivors of a explosion that has claimed 29 lives at Massey Energy Co.’s Upper Big Branch mine in Montcoal, W.

President emboldened for another high court pick WASHINGTON (AP) – Emboldened by success the first time around, President Barack Obama is likely to pick the Supreme Court nominee he wants and let the confirmation fight proceed from there, putting huge emphasis on a justice who would bring a fight-for-thelittle-guy sensibility to the job. Politics will certainly play into Obama’s calculus: He no longer has the votes in the Senate to overcome the delaying tactic known as the filibuster, and a minority Republican Party in fierce opposition to Obama’s agenda has little in-

centive to hand him a win just months before House and Senate elections. But his strategy worked when he chose Sonia Sotomayor to replace Justice David Souter last year Obama – announce the criteria he deems the most vital for a nominee, vet the nominees with no embarrassing gaffes or leaks, and pick the one with whom he feels the most comfort. Confirmability was a factor then, not a driver. Expect much the same now.

Obama leaves without press, breaks protocol WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama quietly breached years of protocol on Saturday morning by leaving the White House without the press with him.

About two hours before reporters were supposed to be in position to leave with the president, Obama left the grounds. Members of the press were told he was attending one of his

daughter’s soccer games. The press corps traditionally travels with the president to report on the president’s activities for the benefit of informing the public.

sion killed 38 in Hyden, Ky. Federal mine safety officials said crews were working to get the bodies out but did not know how long that would take. Meanwhile, President Barack Obama is awaiting a report on the mine, which has recorded a long list of safety violations, and Congress is planning hearings. “All Americans deserve to work in a place that is safe, and we must take whatever steps are necessary to ensure that all our miners are as safe as possible so that a disaster like this doesn’t happen again,” Obama said.

Cable ties Kissinger to Chile controversy WASHINGTON – As secretary of state, Henry Kissinger canceled a U.S. warning against carrying out international political assassinations that was to have gone to Chile just days before a former ambassador was killed by Chilean agents on Washington’s Embassy Row in 1976, a newly released State Department cable shows. Whether Kissinger played a role in blocking the delivery of the warning to the governments of Chile, Argentina and Uruguay has long been a topic of controversy.

Astronauts prepare for spacewalk No. 2 CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) – Two of the astronauts aboard the orbiting shuttle-station complex rested up Saturday for a second spacewalk involving hefty storage tanks, while their colleagues unloaded much smaller supplies. Spacemen Clayton Anderson and Rick Mastracchio will head back outside early today to replace an old ammonia tank at the International Space Station. They started the job Friday. In all, three spacewalks

will be needed to complete the work. The ammonia tanks – part of the space station’s cooling system – are the size of refrigerators. Anderson said Saturday one day is enough time to rest between spacewalks. He said he often played baseball doubleheaders and basketball games on back-to-back days. “We’re in pretty good shape for old men,� he said, “and I think we’ll be ready to rock ’n’ roll.� Anderson is 51, and Mastracchio is 50.

Hero who helped subdue bomber becomes citizen ATLANTA (AP) – Kwame James waited nearly 10 years to be sworn in as a U.S. citizen, a long time compared with the time he spent helping subdue wouldbe shoe bomber Richard Reid on a trans-Atlantic flight. James, now 32, wore a gray pinstriped suit and blue tie this week during the ceremony, which ended years of immigration limbo that began after he helped thwart the terror attack aboard a Paris-to-Miami flight in December 2001.

The 6foot-8 basketball player was napping when a flight atJames tendant r o u s e d him. Ten rows back, Reid was scuffling with passengers and the crew after he tried to ignite explosives.

Miracle League opens for second season BY VICKI KNOPFLER ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – The Phillies and Red Sox traded hits Saturday morning for a final score that wasn’t at all the point of the game. The teams played the opening game of The Miracle League of High Point’s second season. The special baseball field off Shadybrook Road was created last year with a tremendous amount of community and city support to serve young people age 5-18 with physical and mental disabilities. On Saturday morning, Tyler Ford celebrated his birthday by getting to first base on his first hit. Chris Hall, 6, of Archdale, came off the specially outfitted field

Tammy is thrilled that the Miracle Field is available for Chris. “He had been wanting to play – he’d say, ‘Me play’ – when his sister (Makala, 8) would play soccer, and now he has someplace to play. Yesterday he kept looking at the clock asking me was it ball game time,” Tammy said. When looking at Mir-

Another buddy, Todd Murphy, is a prime example of the volunteers who assist players, said Sherry Paul, recreation supervisor for the city of High Point’s Parks & Recreation Department, which sponsors The Miracle League. Murphy, from Maryland and a sophomore at High Point University, volunteered for double duty as a coach and buddy. “He’s never missed a


The Miracle League this year has more than 60 young people who play on six teams.

WINSTON-SALEM – Organizers of a Piedmont job fair taking place next week hope the event may help ignite an employment market that’s been too tough for too long. The 14th annual Employment and Resource Fair will be held from 10 a.m.–4 p.m. Tuesday at the Winston-Salem Sports & Entertainment Complex Coliseum Annex Building. Fifty employers and career educators and 3,500 job-seekers are expected to attend, organizers say. Employers scheduled to attend include Atrium Windows & Doors, Dillard’s, Flow Automotive Companies, MetLife, Novant Health, Pepsi, Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center and Winston-Salem State University. Organizers of this year’s event had a more difficult time than in recent years securing employers because of the rough economy, said Nancy Doub, special projects coordinator for Goodwill Industries of Northwest North Carolina. Goodwill is the lead sponsor of the job fair. “It’s been tougher this year finding employers with jobs. A lot of our companies didn’t come back this year because they don’t have openings,” Doub said. The job fair takes place against the backdrop of record unemployment rates across the state. The February jobless rate was 11.2 percent, according to N.C. Employment Security Commission figures.

Cancer center receives top honor



Director, Dr. Bart Frizzell, Department of Radiation Oncology. “This accreditation is not the end of a process, but rather proof of the value of our ongoing commitment to delivering the best care possible.” In order to receive the ACR accreditation, the Cancer Center has voluntarily undergone a review process in which nationally accepted standards were met. In addition, the ACR accreditation ensures that staff in the Radiation Oncology Department is qualified through certifications, licensure and

education. The equipment and the technologies used have been found to be of the highest quality, ensuring High Point Regional’s facility either meets or exceeds quality assurance and safety guidelines. “We realized years ago that everyone in our field tends to promote that they have the newest, latest and greatest technology,” said Frizzell. “The quest for ACR accreditation represents an ongoing commitment to provide the best possible care, through innovative technology, delivered by compassionate and highly qualified staff.”

Original Munchkin Meinhardt Raabe attends the “Wizard of Oz” 70th Anniversary Emerald Gala at Tavern on the Green in New York in 2009.

Raabe, ‘Wizard of Oz’ Munchkin actor, dies at 94 THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Meinhardt Raabe, who played the Munchkin coroner in “The Wizard of Oz” and proclaimed in the movie that the Wicked Witch of the East was “really most sincerely dead,” has died. He was 94. His caregiver, Cindy Bosnyak, said Raabe died Friday morning at a hospital in Orange Park, Fla. He was one of the few surviving Munchkins from the 1939 film. Bosnyak said he complained of a sore throat at his retirement community before collapsing and going into cardiac arrest. He was taken to Orange Park Medical Center, where he later died, she said. “He had a headful of hair at 94 and he ... remembered everything every day,” she said. “To me

he was a walking history book, very alert.” Raabe was one of the 124 Munchkins in the film classic and one of only nine who had speaking parts. He was 22 years old and a show business veteran, earning money for college as a “midget” performer, as they were called then, when the movie was shot in 1938. Raabe portrayed the diminutive Munchkin official who solemnly pronounces the witch dead after Dorothy’s farmhouse lands on her: “As coroner I must aver, I thoroughly examined her, And she’s not only merely dead, she’s really most sincerely dead.” His costume included a huge hat with a rolled brim, and dyed yak hair was used for his handlebar mustache and long beard.

Timothy White, victim of 1980 kidnapping, dies SANTA CLARITA, Calif. (AP) – Timothy White, the youngest victim and last survivor of a notorious California kidnapping saga whose rescue offered hope to parents of missing children, has died. He was 35. Timothy “Timmy” White was 5 years old when he was kidnapped by child molester Kenneth Parnell as he walked home from his Ukiah school in 1980. Two weeks later, fellow kidnap victim Steven Stayner fled with the boy and hitchhiked to safety. The 14-year-old Stayner had been held captive and sexually abused for years by Parnell. “He didn’t want what happened to him to happen to me,” White said in 2004. The dramatic kidnapping story was told in a

book and in the 1989 television movie, “I Know My First Name is Steven.” White’s stepfather, Roger Gitlin, said in an e-mail to family friends that White died April 1 of an apparent pulmonary embolism. He was buried Thursday in the town of Newhall in Los Angeles County, where he had worked as a sheriff’s deputy since 2005. Parnell died at age 76 in 2008 while serving a life term for trying to buy a 4year-old boy for $500 while living in Berkeley. He spent five years in prison during the 1980s for the abductions of Stayner and White. Stayner, who returned to his family in Merced after living with Parnell for more than seven years, died in a 1989 motorcycle crash.

Bowles: Hundreds of faculty job cuts possible MCCLATTCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

DURHAM – UNC President Erskine Bowles said Friday that the state’s university system might have to cut hundreds of faculty positions across its 17 campuses if its budget is cut by 5 percent. The university system already was preparing for a 2 percent budget cut to make up for lower state funding, but Bowles told the Board of Governors, which met at N.C. Central University, that more cuts would hurt the academic core of its campuses for years. A 5 percent budget cut would mean the loss of 1,000 jobs systemwide,

and half would be faculty members, he said. The larger number comes from the Office of State Budget and Management, which weeks ago asked state agencies to prepare 5 percent cut scenarios. The final number could be different. In other matters, NCCU Chancellor Charlie Nelms told the board that the Durham school needs more money to grow. Nelms said NCCU needs more money for land, residence halls and a student union building. He said it’s important to recognize that past underfunding at historically black schools like NCCU has had a cumulative effect, and that “low-wealth, less well-pre-

pared students require more investment.� Noting how jammed many of the buildings on campus are, Nelms said more money is needed to buy nearby land to let the university expand and for the school’s outreach to children in kindergarten through 12th grade. The board also presented its prestigious Oliver Max Gardner Award to Jagannathan Sankar, a faculty member at N.C. A&T State University in Greensboro. The award is the oldest statewide honor given to faculty members by the UNC Board of Governors. It goes to the person judged to have made the greatest contribution to the welfare of the human race.

Professors: Obama’s court nominee will face challenges WINSTON-SALEM – President Obama will face political challenges regardless of whom he nominates to replace retiring Justice John Paul Stevens, three law professors at Wake Forest University said. Ron Wright, a criminallaw professor at WFU, said that Obama could nominate someone who is “a liberal lion� like Thurgood Marshall or William Brennan, justices who served on the court until the 1990s. However, Obama also could pick someone who

is a centrist, such as Justices Steven Breyer or Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Wright said that no matter whom Obama selects, “he can’t make everybody happy, but that is the nature of being president.� Michael Kent Curtis, a constitutional-law professor at WFU, said that Obama can expect “a highly contentious and politicized� confirmation process in the U.S. Senate. Curtis suggested that Obama appoint someone like Stevens, whom Curtis described as a moderate. “Others would say that he (Stevens) is a wild-eyed liberal,� Curtis said.

Student injured in wreck improves

BURLINGTON – The condition of an Elon University student involved in a wreck on Interstate 85 in Durham County on Monday night is improving. Sophomore Laura Levitt remains at Duke University Medical Center in Durham. As of Thursday, she was still in the intensive care unit, although she was taken off a ventilator and breathing on her own, according to information posted by her family on the “Pray for Laura Levitt� page on Facebook, an Internet social networking site. Levitt, 20, who was traveling south on I-85 in her Toyota pickup truck about 5 p.m. Monday, was hit by a Acura Legend driven by De-Marquis Griggs, 22, of Crescent Hill Court, Durham. Griggs, who was involved in a chase with Durham County sheriff’s deputies, lost control of his vehicle and hit Levitt’s truck, said 1st Sgt. L.T. McPhail of the N.C. Highway Patrol.

LEONARD PITTS: I’m doing 60 miles for the memory of Mom. TOMORROW

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


Thomasville’s top employees should live in city What is wrong with Thomasville? Is the city of Thomasville unfit to live in? Evidently Councilmen Neal Grimes and David Yemm both believe that no one hired in top positions would want to live in Thomasville. If that is true, guess who controls what Thomasville has to offer or what Thomasville can offer. It’s the same employees in those top positions. If the top employees of Thomasville are required to live here, maybe we can become a city where people and businesses will want to reside. If they lived here, their opinions of Thomasville as a place to live/work would impact decisions they make for residences and businesses. Not only do their decisions affect our citizens, their incomes are from taxes we pay. Over time, these workers are taking millions of dollars away from Thomasville’s citizens who work



hard every day and pay taxes for services. Employees who live outside of Thomasville are taking our money and giving it to other cities; they do not pay taxes here but in the cities where they live. In my opinion, any employee who makes over $25,000 gross income a year should be required to live in the city of Thomasville. It’s called reinvesting! When would you invest money and not expect something in return? Never! So why would you invest in Thomasville via taxes and fees and not expect those who are in-charge to return some of your investment back into the economy of Thomasville? Please call your City Council members and tell them to require employees to live in Thomasville and help Thomasville through reinvestment. I applaud City

Council members Ron Bratton and Jackie Jackson for understanding this issue. TERRY HILL Thomasville

I have right not to breathe second-hand smoke I wonder what some people are thinking who want to get the smoking ban repealed. State Rep. Jerry Dockham says he will work hard to get the ban repealed. He says that it should be a “common courtesy” for smokers to not smoke around people who don’t smoke. A lot of smokers don’t care whether they smoke around other people. People say that they can’t quit. That is untrue. I was a two-

pack-a-day smoker when I quit back in the mid-1980s. How did I quit? I threw them out my truck window. If you say you can’t quit, you are saying that you are a weak person that has no willpower. If you could smell how bad smokers stink, maybe that would help some people quit. Yes, people have the right to smoke but they do not have the right to subject other people to second-hand smoke and the dangers that go with it. CLAUDE PRUITT Trinity

Budget plans need fresh air


hat you are seeing these days from many governments – at local, county, state and federal levels – is anything but transparent. trans•parent adj. ... to be transparent ... 1 transmitting light rays so that objects on the other side may be distinctly seen; capable of being seen through; neither opaque or translucent 2 so fine in texture or open in mesh that objects on the other side may be seen relatively clearly; sheer; gauzy; diaphanous 3 easily understood; very clear 4 easily recognized or detected; obvious 5 without guile or concealment; open; frank; candid SYN. clear. It continues to amaze us that folks running for office have faith in us during the campaign, believing that we are savvy enough to recognize their fine points and elect them to the office to which they aspire. Once elected, however, we suspect many politicians believe us (perhaps because we chose them) suddenly to be struck stupid and unworthy of recognition until the next election cycle. That appears to be especially true when budgets are being constructed. Consider the Guilford County budget process for example. Not only is the public, which pays the bills, being kept in the dark by the Guilford County manager and the chairman of the Guilford County Board of Commissioners, but so are most of the commissioners as well. One would think that with all the budgeting challenges that almost every business and every household within the county has had to contend with and overcome the last couple of years, that by government sharing information with its constituents throughout the process, some best practices may filter up from the masses that would be as helpful to budget makers as volunteers were to the tornado cleanup effort. Such secrecy, although carried to the extreme by Brenda Jones Fox this time around, gradually has been becoming commonplace since the turn of the century. Taxpayers are considered smart enough to find ways to pay the tax bills but aren’t considered smart enough to help figure out where and how money should be spent and, even more important, where and how it shouldn’t be spent. In this situation, we repeat the questions we asked in an editorial on another public record subject earlier in the week: What are they trying to hide? Why?

Following phenoms – a fun thing in covering sports


ason Adenolith Heyward, 20, 6-foot-4, 220 pounds, bats left, throws left. reports he is ranked by Baseball America, Keith Law of and Jonathan Mayor of as baseball’s top prospect for the 2010 season. Writing about the rookie outfielder for the Atlanta Braves, Terence Moore, national columnist for FanHouse, asked, “Is it wise that Jason A. Heyward (the ‘A’ likely stands for Awesome) is designated around this franchise and throughout this city as Hank Aaron 2.0 or even as a 21st century Jackie Robinson in some ways?” I, too, wondered (aloud during one of The High Point Enterprise’s 4:30 p.m. news conferences last week) if everyone was putting too much pressure on Heyward. All the hype reminded me of that surrounding Clint Hartung, a pitcher/outfielder from Hondo, Texas, 6-foot-5, 210 pounds, batted right, threw right, who, when he made his debut (at age 24) with the New York Giants in 1947. He was described by many baseball “experts” and sports writers as “the next Babe Ruth.” Well, in four seasons as a pitcher, Hartung went 29-29, giving up 271 bases on balls and 57 home runs and struck out 167 batters while posting a career 5.02 earned run average. In six seasons (196 games) at bat (pitcher/outfielder), “The Hondo Hurricane” hit .238 with 14 home runs and 43 runs batted in. 1947 was his best year: .309 with 29 hits in 94 at bats. Nothing Ruthian there. When Heyward slammed a home run in his first at bat for the Braves, I immediately thought of a guy most of you never heard of – Dino Restelli, an outfielder who grew up in St. Louis’ Hill District, 6-foot-11⁄2, 191 pounds, batted right, threw right. Restelli (at age 24) broke into the major leagues in 1949 by hitting five home runs in his first nine games (and seven in his first 18 days) for the Pittsburgh Pirates before pitchers really started throwing curve balls. Restelli hit a total of 12 home runs that season and, after playing in the minors much of 1950, rejoined the Pirates and hit just one more home run. His career ended at age 25. He had played in 93 Major League games with a .241 batting average and 43 runs batted in. Nothing outstanding there. Hopefully, Heyward – probably the most heralded phenom since Mickey Mantle broke into the majors with the New York Yankees in 1951 – will be as successful in the big leagues as he has been in the minors.

For the record, Mantle, 5foot-11, 195 pounds, batted both, threw right, played in 2,401 regular season games with 2,415 hits, 536 home runs, 1,509 runs batted in, 1,733 walks, 1,710 strikeouts and a .557 slugging average. In 12 World Series (65 games), he batOPINION ted .257 with 18 home runs and 40 rbi. Mantle was inducted into Tom baseball’s Hall of Fame in 1974. Blount Plenty phenomenal there. ■■■ In three minor league seasons, Heyward played in 238 minor league games (rookie, A, A+, AA and AAA) belting 279 hits for a .318 batting average with 29 home runs, 125 runs batted in and a .508 slugging percentage. He committed 13 errors as an outfielder for a .973 fielding average. In September 2009, Heyward was chosen Minor League Player of the Year. He was born in Ridgewood, New Jersey, but gained fame as an all-America prep first baseman in his hometown of McDonough, Georgia, on the outskirts of Atlanta. Moore also wrote about “that history thing: The Braves have featured a slew of highly touted rookies since they moved to Atlanta from Milwaukee in 1966. They’ve had four Rookie of the Year winners during that stretch in Earl Williams (1971), Bob Horner (1978), David Justice (1990) and Rafael Furcal (2000). Plus, they’ve had Dale Murphy starting his near Hall of Fame career during the mid-1970s before Tom Glavine and John Smoltz began their inevitable sprints to Cooperstown during the late 1980s. “There also were those much-hyped starts for the two Joneses. You already know about Chipper, but then you had Andruw, who became better than Mickey Mantle in 1996 by homering in a World Series at 19. He topped the Mick’s old record by a year as the youngest player ever to do so. He did so at Yankee Stadium, too, which was Mantle’s old roaming grounds. If that wasn’t enough, Andruw actually slammed two homers in his first two World Series at bats, and he did all of that on Mantle’s birthday.” If Heyward performs at a level that even comes close to matching the hype, his career truly should be something to behold. He’s carrying quite a load on his broad shoulders. Now, let’s sit back and watch him play ball!

Tide rises toward riparian rights battle ‘Qu’ils mangent W de la brioche’ T

he federal budget deficit in 2009 was more than $1.4 trillion. Using President Obama’s proposed budget for 2011, the Congressional Budget Office projects trillion dollar deficits for two more years, then a slight reduction for a few years before reverting to an upward slope with perpetual trillion dollar deficits. Our national debt is well above $12 trillion and our unfunded liabilities are over $108 trillion. Social Security was previously projected to pay out more than it takes in starting in 2016, but we’ve already passed that mark six years early. You don’t have to be an economist to know that America is on an unsustainable path. You do, however, need to have common sense and pay attention to current events. You do need to educate yourself on the history of the political systems that have been in use over the past few hundred years. You do need to get involved with government by voicing your concerns – loudly if needed OPINION – and by voting in every election. Mike Nobody ever said Hughes that living in a ■■■ constitution-based federal republic would be easy, but that’s what a lot of Americans have come to expect, and that sentiment is partly what has led to our unsustainable path. Referring to Obama’s recent signing of health care reform, Cato Institute economist Veronique de Rugy said, “We are about to witness … the biggest, most massive transfer of wealth from the relatively young and poor people in society to the relatively old and wealthy people in society.” People who are young and healthy don’t need comprehensive health insurance, and people who are older generally have more wealth than younger people. America is facing huge problems, but these problems can be solved with the right (as in conservative) leadership. U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., is one such leader. Ryan’s Roadmap for America’s Future Act of 2010 (H.R. 4529) would likely solve the pending crises in Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid while paying off the national debt. The solution involves both tax and entitlement cuts while transferring power from Washington bureaucrats back to the people. Ryan’s legislation is not an easy fix, but if there is an answer to our problems, this is what it will look like. As expected, liberals have criticized the bill using the dishonest claim of “tax cuts for the rich.” Yet liberals clearly have no better ideas. Contrary to the wishes of the hope-and-change crowd, conservative leadership is still going strong in America. The question is: How do we get there from here? The answer is to get involved. There will be another Tea Party at Governmental Plaza in Greensboro at 5:30 p.m. April 15. More information can be found at http://gsoteaparty.wordpress. com/. Also, “Conservatives for Guilford County” can be found on Facebook, and GOOOH is looking for new members. French Queen Marie Antoinette may or may not have said “Let them eat cake,” but the liberal Democrats said exactly that when they exempted their leaders from Obamacare. Times have changed since the French Revolution, but the arrogance of power remains the same. Keeping that power in check is what created American exceptionalism. That’s exactly what we need to do now. MIKE HUGHES is a Navy veteran who lives in Jamestown. His column appears here every other Sunday. To comment, visit and click on local commentary.

hen our Legislature reconvenes next month, its members will face an important test from coastal property owners who want to reverse the state’s long-standing ban against terminal groins. We certainly understand the desire to restore shorelines. Property owners paid large sums of money to enjoy sandy beaches and feel they have the right to restore them. People have argued over who owns coastal waters and land for centuries. A body of law regarding “riparian rights” has evolved. In a paper on water law prepared for the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics at N.C. State University, Allain Andry, wrote, “Under North Carolina law, all land under saltwater bodies, lands subject to the ebb and flow of the tide, and land under water that is subject to the influx

of saltwater is owned by the State ‘in trust’ for the public.” A private property owner actually owns only the land MY SPIN above the traditional highTom water mark. Campbell The owner is ■■■ allowed “reasonable use” of water and sand beyond the high-water mark so long as he or she doesn’t interfere with reasonable use by other property owners and the public. If a property owner does anything that will harm or change the reasonable use of the land or water of another property owner, the other owner’s riparian rights, as well as those of the public, have been violated. A seawall, jetty or rock groin placed in the water will cause erosion

or diversion of water to another property owner according to a large body of evidence. The Senate has passed a bill that would allow terminal groins but the House wisely refused to do so. The Coastal Resources Commission conducted a $300,000 study on the impact of terminal groins and, by an 8-5 margin, recommended continuing the current ban. Some mistakenly believe this close vote resulted from insufficient proof of the damage groins can cause. It was nothing more than a reflection of the intense lobbying underway by those who want to remove the ban, restore their beaches and protect their property values. As long as we have inhabited this region we can cite the changing nature of shorelines, inlets and water flow. Removing the ban on terminal groins is a class

action lawsuit waiting to happen, and if our understanding of the principles of riparian rights is correct, the ban will be upheld. People who have enough dollars to buy waterfront property should also have enough sense to recognize the fragile and changing nature of shorelines before investing their money. I am one of them but knew the risks when I bought and recognize I don’t have the right to harm others’ property just to preserve mine. Resisting the pressure from special interests will be a real test of this Legislature, and we will all be watching to see how they respond.

Race and politics It’s a deadly combination that has torn many nations apart


ew combinations are more poisonous than race and politics. That combination has torn whole nations apart and led to the slaughters of millions in countries around the world. You might think we would have learned a lesson from that and stay away from injecting race into political issues. Yet playing the race card has become an increasingly common response to growing public anger at the policies of the Obama administration and the way those policies have been imposed. OPINION When the triumphant Democrats made their Thomas widely televised walk up Sowell Capitol Hill after passing ■■■ the health care bill, led by a smirking and strutting Nancy Pelosi, holding her oversized gavel, some of the crowd of citizens expressed their anger. According to some Democrats, these expressions of anger included racial slurs directed at black members of Congress. This is a serious charge – and one deserving of some serious evidence. But, despite all the media recording devices on the scene, not to mention recording devices among the crowd gathered there, nobody can come up with a single recorded sound to back up that incendiary charge. Worse yet, some people have claimed that even doubting the charge suggests that you are a racist. Among the people who are likely to be most disappointed with the Obama administration are those who thought it would usher in a post-racial society. That they wished for such a society is a credit to their values. But that they actu-

ally expected a move in that direction suggests that they ignored both Barack Obama’s history and the heavy vested interest that too many people have in race hustling. This is just one of many areas in which this country is likely to pay a very high price for the fact that too many voters paid attention to Obama’s rhetoric while ignoring his actual track record. However soothing the Obama rhetoric, and however lofty his statements about being a uniter rather than a divider – both racially and in terms of bipartisanship – everything in his past fairly shouts the opposite, but only to those who follow facts. Has he been allied with uniters or dividers in the past? Do Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayers and Father Pfleger sound like uniters? What has his administration done – as distinguished from what the president has said – since taking office? It has dropped the prosecution of black thugs caught on camera stationed outside a polling place intimidating voters. Obama has promoted to the Supreme Court a circuit judge who dismissed a discrimination lawsuit by white fire-

fighters, whose case the Supreme Court later accepted and ruled in their favor. He preceded this appointment by talking about needing people on the court with “empathy.” That is a pretty word but the ugly reality is that it is just another euphemism for bias. For generations, white Southern judges had all kinds of empathy for other white Southerners, which is to say, bias against blacks. The question is whether you want equal treatment or you want payback. Cycles of revenge and counter-revenge have been at the heart of racial and ethnic strife throughout history, in countries around the world. It is a history written in blood. It is history we don’t need to repeat in the United States of America. Political demagoguery and political favoritism have turned groups violently against each other, even in countries where they have lived peacefully side by side for generations. Ceylon was one of those countries in the first half of the 20th century, before the politics of group favoritism so polarized the country – now called Sri Lanka – that it produced a decades-long civil war with mass slaughters and unspeakable atrocities. The world has been shocked by the mass slaughters of the Tutsis by the Hutus in Rwanda, but until a half century ago, there had been no such systematic slaughters there. We know – or should know – what lies at the end of the road of racial polarization. A “race card” is not something to play, because race is a very dangerous political plaything.

Is man-made global warming a hoax?


ecent revelations about global warming have put into question how much affect man actually has on climate change. The debate really heated up with the release of a thousand hacked e-mails and numerous errors in the United Nations climate report. The e-mails were hacked from the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit server in Britain and placed online. E-mails showed that climate scientists were manipulating and withholding climate data to strengthen their argument for man-made global warming. The British press has labeled this “Climategate” and have accused the East Anglia’s Research Unit of undermining all science’s credibility. An independent probe headed by the British Institute of Physics has been requested to investigate this matter. This data was also used by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to urge governments



to cut carbon dioxide emissions and show that Earth’s temperatures have been relatively stable for centuries before rising sharply in the recent decades. The IPCC climate report failed to include the medieval warming period (800-1300 A.D.) when the waters around Greenland were ice free. The Viking colonies on Greenland flourished for many centuries. Greenland is now 85 percent covered with thick ice and has a yearly high temperature of 50 degrees Fahrenheit in July. Climate scientists and meteorologists who dared question man-made global warming were ridiculed and attacked by Al Gore, news media and the extreme left environmentalists. The lead climate scientist who authored the IPCC climate report recently stated that climate data now shows that the world has been cool-

ing since 1995. Maybe this is the reason for Lake Eire completely freezing over for the first time since 1995 or all 50 states having snow cover at one time. I am sure that many N.C. residents like me, who have had their highest heating bills in many years, would not have minded a little more global warming this winter. A lot of the climate warming conclusions were obtained from analyzing the growth rings of one tree in Siberia. My experience as a West Virginia University forestry graduate tells me few conclusions about the Earth’s past temperatures can be obtained by looking at the growth rings of only one tree. Some of the hacked e-mails showed researchers discussing how to manipulate the raw data from the tree rings about the Earth’s historical temperatures. A lot of weather changes are due to the natural Earth cycles. President Obama told Chilean people that man can-

not control earthquakes. How about the Earth’s climate? The New York Times reported that global warming was even worse than we thought because of the recent all-time record snow storms on the East Coast. Gore and the news media have been hyping the dangers of global warming for years. Gore and his Wall Street cronies stand to make hundreds of million dollars with their companies doing carbon credit trading. The Obama administration and Democrat Congress are also looking to use global warming hype to pass the cap and trade bill as a way to raise $600 billion in new energy taxes. This bill also would cost the state of North Carolina many thousands of jobs. The bottom line is that proposed global warming policies will mean higher taxes, higher energy costs, lost jobs and more government. REGIS KLINE is a resident of Trinity.


Novel relates to real-life discontent in marriages CHARLOTTE (AP) – They are not the Real Housewives of Charlotte, but the characters in Charlottean Kim Wright’s new novel, “Love in Mid Air,” may feel like people you’ve met before. Wright’s debut novel, in bookstores next week, tells the story of Elyse Bearden, an almost-40 Charlotte woman debating whether to leave her stale marriage - and the comfortable existence that goes with it. This tale of suburban housewife angst draws not only from Wright’s own experiences, but from marriage discontent in real-life Charlotte. She recorded it all in her journals. Thirteen years ago,

‘I really do think when you get divorced, you’re driving through crazy town.’ Kim Wright Author Wright was a freelance writer and mother of two, going through a divorce. Once she left her husband, a strange thing happened. “When you become the person who’s had the divorce,” she says, “everyone starts telling you their stories.” She found herself being flagged down in the Plantation Market Harris Teeter, stopped by women who wanted to confide that their marriages weren’t so good. Getting divorced, it turned out, made her safe to talk to. She had failed publicly, and now she had become mother confessor for every discontented woman in southeast Charlotte. Wright wrote down all the stories she heard, and she moved on. Years later, she had the idea for a novel that avoids romance-plot cliches. In-

stead of being dumped, then finding true love, her heroine would decide to leave. In real life, it turns out, women initiate most divorces after age 40. Lucky for Wright, she still had her journals. Wright, 54, explained her unusual piece of luck recently to a dozen women gathered for a book club at Sandy Culver’s Lake Norman house. CulAP ver had invited Wright, Author Kim Wright (left) and Lake Norman book club member Fiona Key discuss Kim Wright’s debut novel, “Love her longtime friend, to In Mid Air,” in Charlotte. discuss “Love in Mid Air” (Grand Central; $23). Early reviews are glowing. “Astute and engrossing,” says People. “Wright hits it out of the park,” says Publishers Weekly. The book raises many questions: Why do women stay in a bad marriage? Why do they finally leave? Is an affair ever acceptable? This group was wellequipped for the discussion. About half were divorced. Some saw themselves in the novel. A couple wondered why main character Elyse, an ethical, practical person, risks so much to have an affair. Partly, Wright explained, to add dramatic tension. But also, when marriages break up, people do things they’d never do under normal circumstances. “I really do think when you get divorced, you’re driving through crazy town.” Several women prodded Wright to reveal her inspirations for the people and places. Was the pony-tailed lawyer Bill Diehl? Where’s the church she describes? And what’s the gated community where the character Kelly lives? Wright mostly avoided direct answers. The story is, after all, fiction distilled from fact, not journalism. She admitted, though, that Kelly’s fictional Charlotte neighborhood is modeled after Piper Glen and Ballantyne. Wright’s story also is laced with snippets from all the marriage complaints she heard years ago.

Tough sell Vulnerable Democrats are tiptoeing on health care FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) – First-term Rep. Betsy Markey is convinced that once people learn what’s in President Barack Obama’s new health care overhaul law, they’ll support it. But it’s not a message she was eager to carry in person to her constituents in Republican-leaning eastern Colorado. During Congress’ two-week Easter break, she reserved any discussion of health care reform for conference calls, an op-ed piece and

an appearance at a smalltown Rotary Club – all small-bore outreach. After the raucous, angry town halls of last summer, Markey steered clear of massive gatherings. She was not alone. Tough votes for Obama’s health care plan have further complicated the re-election prospects of dozens of already vulnerable freshman and second-term Democrats. There’s even a chance the party could

lose control of one or both houses in the midterm elections. Democrats and a few Republicans reported receiving threats to themselves and their families in the days after the vote. The FBI arrested a California man Wednesday for allegedly making threatening phone calls to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. On Tuesday, a Washington state man was arrested and charged with threatening to kill Democratic Sen. Patty Murray. In districts and states where the overhaul was most controversial, townhall meetings have been replaced with tightly controlled business roundta-

bles and other gatherings with voters. In Nevada, first-term Democratic Rep. Dina Titus defended her vote for the health care bill in a newspaper piece she cowrote and in a meeting with female doctors. Facing a vigorous GOP challenge from a Republican physician, she acknowledged treading carefully. “It’s more of a teaching tour than a selling tour,” she said of her recent appearances. Republicans dismiss the notion that voters opposed to the new law can be sold on it. They equate the overhaul to a “government takeover” of health care and blame it on one-



party arrogance. The theme is central to House Republicans’ plan to cast the GOP as the party that will listen to what voters want, not pass bills the people oppose. As lawmakers prepared to wrap up their recess and return to Washington, Republicans released a campaign spot featuring feet in flip-flops and criticizing House Democrats who voted against the health care overhaul last fall but then voted for it on final passage. Like Markey, Titus voted for the health care overhaul but hasn’t made an in-person appearance before a large crowd on the topic since it was signed into law.

Mehmet Cakal owns Sumela Restaurant at 805 N. Main St., formerly known as Main Street Grill.

Sumela owner offers Turkish delights BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – Mehmet Cakal isn’t afraid of a little change. The Turkey native came to the U.S. more than 15 years ago for a change — one that he refers to as “half opportunity and half adventure.” “I was working for my father then,” said Cakal, who was 21 when he departed from Turkey. “I knew a little bit about running a business.” Now the owner of Sumela Restaurant at 805 N. Main St., he’s become a business owner in High Point on his own accord, never forgetting to embrace change along the way. Cakal, who served 18 months in the Turkish military before departing, arrived in the U.S. in 1988. He stayed with friends in New York before heading to Williamsburg, Va., where he got his first taste of the restaurant industry. He managed an Italian restaurant for six years,

then decided to shift gears once again. “I was looking for a yearround business,” Cakal said. “Williamsburg was just a tourist town.” Cakal had another group of friends who lived in the Piedmont Triad area. He followed their suggestions to consider opening a restaurant in Winston-Salem, but a suitable location appeared in High Point, he said. “I didn’t know anything about High Point then or the furniture market,” he said. “But it turned out to be better than I expected. It turned out to be better than what I thought I would find in WinstonSalem.” The Main Street Grill opened in 1997 serving mostly a lunch menu of burgers and sandwiches. The restaurant served High Point for more than 10 years until suddenly, in 2008, Cakal hung a sign above the restaurant that read “Sumela Restaurant.” That’s when customers began pouring in, asking if

the business had been sold or if new owners had taken over. “A lot of customers said, ‘We thought you were gone,’” Cakal said. “But a lot of them are still coming back now.” The name “Sumela” holds sentimental value for Cakal, who is from the Black Sea Province in Turkey. Sumela is a century-old monastery dedicated to the Virgin Mary there. But the sudden change represents a bigger series of changes Cakal is implementing at the business — switching gears from a sandwich shop to a sitdown establishment that offers Mediterranean and Turkish dinners. That’s important to Cakal not only because the dishes are from his native land, but because it’s also a unique offering in High Point. “It (the new offerings) has really worked,” he said. “I see their potential here because High Point is known as an international town. We’re the

only ones here offering this sort of thing.” The new items include lamb, beef and chicken shish-kabobs, as well as a Turkish pizza known as Lehmacum. The pizza has a thin crust with beef, fresh chopped parsley, onions and more. Food is Cakal’s main focus now, and the quick change he made to the restaurant’s name is a sign that he isn’t afraid to continually change and better his own business, he said.


“We’re always thinking new things,” he said. “Changes are always coming up. We’re just doing as much as we can as soon as we can.” And being your own boss, just like his father was, makes that a little bit easier. “I like this business because if I have a good idea, I don’t have to get it approved,” he said. “I can change it and go ahead and try it.” | 888-3617

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Subscription music service Rhapsody is dropping its monthly price to $9.99 from $14.99, hoping that loads of iPhone users who sampled it will now pay for all-youcan-listen access. Several companies have announced their intention to launch similar music plans that let people listen to songs that are stored on remote computers and streamed to their smartphones wirelessly. Such music services, based on so-called “cloud” computing, are challenging Apple Inc.’s system of having consumers buy and download tracks for playback on iPhones and iPods. The subscription plans have yet to take off. But as cell phone networks have gotten faster and more capable of handling large amounts of data, more companies are beginning to offer cloud-based music services. Apple itself is believed to be developing a cloud-based music offering after its acquisition in December of That site lets people purchase songs to stream online from a digital locker for 10 cents apiece. Rhapsody says it has an advantage over other subscription plans because it has an established user base – about 675,000 at the end of 2009. Also, it has cash to spend after spinning off last week from parents RealNetworks Inc. and Viacom Inc. Rhapsody got $18 million from RealNetworks and a $33 million credit from Viacom so it can buy advertising on Viacom cable channels such as MTV.

furniture market (in High Point).” By selling directly to online customers, Carolina Girl cuts out the middle men, thus reducing costs. When furniture is delivered, patrons have a period of time to change their minds. “People have the mentality that they want to sit on it (before purchasing),” Hughes said. With the option to change their minds upon delivery, customers can order without seeing the furniture firsthand. “We’re making the furniture and shipping it when ordered,” she said. “We keep some stocks in our Randleman warehouse.” She said some customers have driven to Randolph County just to see the Carolina Girl line in person. Then they can avoid delivery costs by hauling it away at the time of sale. Hughes said going online is a trend of the future that could help the American furniture industry be more able to compete with foreign countries.

“We’re going to have to change the way we do things,” she said. “But we have to get people’s trust. Young people are going to shop on the Internet.” And the Carolina Girl style should “give people choices,” Hughes said. The new product line is made with all hardwood frames with double springs, soy-based foam, fiber made from recycled green plastic and fabrics made from 100 percent cotton and linen. Carolina Girl Furniture is striving to be eco-friendly, said Hughes. Each piece is cut and sewn at the factory and individually upholstered. The frames are built by Carolina Frames of Asheboro. Asked about her role in the new business, Luther said, “I love it. It’s fun, fresh and exciting.” Luther said the two enjoy designing furniture that’s fun and has personality. They also build in choices for consumers, such as the ability to change out pillows.

Brash CEO delivers first annual profit SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — If Overstock. com’s unconventional CEO had a defining moment, it might have been a conference call he had with investors five years ago. For an hour, Patrick Byrne lashed out at what he called a conspiracy of short sellers and others plotting to destroy his company’s share price so a “bottom feeder” could take over the Internet discounter. Byrne says his point was to expose “crooked” hedge funds and how federal regulators were powerless to stop them. “We’ve got a group of parasites who have found a loophole that they can keep on using to just drain resources out of entrepreneurs in America, and in the process kill small companies,” Byrne thundered on the call. The jury is still out on many of these claims. Byrne has filed a lawsuit that he says will put major brokerage houses on trial next year to face allegations they abetted a questionable form of trading called naked short selling. But Inc. reported its first annual profit Wednesday, giving Byrne a win in his personal crusade. Shares of the company rose more than 30 percent, almost passing their 52-week high of $17.99. The stock has traded as low as $8.94 in the past year. The company’s narrow 2009 gain of $7.7 million, Byrne said, proves that those who traded presuming Overstock’s weaknesses were wrong and vindicates his tumultuous effort to position the company as a challenger to the Goliaths of Internet retail. Overstock’s challenge is to remain a price leader in an increasingly crowded market where practically anyone can make a sale from a consumer’s Google search, said Nathaniel Schindler, an analyst at Merrill Lynch. “You can find good inventory and deals on the Internet elsewhere. That just makes it tougher for them,” he said. Byrne says the company, which has 1,260 employees, recognizes that problem and is continually adjusting prices to meet the competition. When explosive growth made the company appear promising, the stock hit a high of more than $77 in 2004, valuing the

Yet out-of-control costs, especially for marketing, bungled technology overhauls and Byrne’s preoccupation with short sellers marked a decade where Overstock

Want to be motivated? Find a good match BY MILDRED L. CULP WORKWISE FEATURES

Not everyone seems happy at work, but outstanding employees are. What motivates them? Two very different people illustrate the motivational bottom line – being a good match with their companies. Fred Bowman, agent at Ryla Inc., in Kennesaw, Ga., telephones customers to sell credit information. Bob Branson, president of TAC-USA Inc., in Las Vegas, recruits and develops teams marketing training packages for larger enterprise accounts. Although both men sell business-to-business services to large organizations, their similarities end there. Bowman, who’s held only two jobs since 1983, has sales goals to meet every month, with good training to back him. If a month’s goal is $15,000, he sells to overreach. Some months he’s closed almost $40,000. Branson works in a start-up with a longer sales cycle. After six months, he bested six established training giants over a $300,000 contract. “He made a huge contribution to my company,” according to his boss, CEO Janelle Barlow. The buyer at the $12 billion organization indicated that he expects the contract to expand globally and pay in the multi-millions.


Fred Bowman shares his secret to self-motivation, which puts him over quota and landed him a new car in December. He’s an agent at Ryla Inc. in Kennesaw, Ga.

has long been motivated by a desire for excellence, which, he says, is part of his company’s goal: “I’ve always tried to make the job the best job I’ve ever had. Ryla gives the tools and training. It’s up to you to set the goals and reach them. The company makes you feel comfortable, like at home, which MATCHES These two men haven’t al- makes it easy to come to work lowed the Great Recession to each morning.” affect them on the job. Bowman He and the company are a match.

A Kia Soul brought to the property also motivated Bowman. Every employee who exceeded goals had a chance at it, to be awarded at the Christmas party. “I’d been putting a lot of money in a vehicle to keep it running,” he says, “but it broke down the day of the party. I got it into a garage and was told it would cost $600 to $1,000, with no guarantee that it would solve the problem. “I borrowed an old truck,”

he continues, “went home and tried to decide whether to go to the party. The truck had no heat; it was sleeting; and it was very, very cold. I felt feverish. I decided to go but hid the truck so no one would see it.” When his name was pulled out of the hat, he felt overwhelmed and “pretty much staggered to the podium, because my knees were buckling. It made me feel I must be doing something right.”

Branson had been working in a Fortune 500 company before coming to TAC-USA. He contrasted the two working environments. “To get something changed (there),” he comments, “you had to fight and fight and fight. A big initiative might take two years. It’s like turning a big battleship, and 20 minutes later the ship begins to respond. This is like driving a speed boat. You turn the wheel and the boat turns.” He’s having fun, enjoying the fact that his small start-up is backed by a global organization. Empowered to “do just about anything I want to do,” Branson recognizes that an error in a start-up, unlike a large organization, could be fatal. “Everything I do is so meaningful and happens so fast that I’m compelled to get it right,” he says. How would they advise you? Branson recommends identifying what your company’s customers want and making the experience they want come through. Bowman suggests deciding if you want to be where you’re working and, if not, hunting for a company to train you and share your values in a comfortable environment. Then, he says, “if you go there and start feeling comfortable, put out that energy and do the best you can.” DR. MILDRED L. CULP, Workwise Features, is an award-winning journalist.

Lee Westwood of England acknowledges applause on the 18th hole after his third round of the Masters on Saturday at Augusta National. Westwood carded a third-round 68 for a 12-under-par 204 and a onestroke lead over Phil Mickelson entering today’s final round.

Phil Mickelson gives a thumbs up after his eagle on the 14th hole during the third round of the Masters on Saturday. Lefty went eagle-eaglebirdie on holes 13-15 en route to a 67. He stands at 11-under 205, one shot off the pace set by Lee Westwood.

Electrifying at Augusta MASTERS AT A GLANCE


AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) – A glance at Saturday’s third round of the Masters: Leader: Lee Westwood of England at 12under 204. Just behind: Two-time Masters champion Phil Mickelson is one shot off the lead. Still in the mix: Tiger Woods and K.J. Choi are four strokes behind, while Fred Couples is five back. Wrong way: Ian Poulter started the day tied with Westwood for the lead, but a 74 left him six strokes off the pace going to the final round. Anthony Kim also failed to make a move on Moving Day, struggling to a 73 that left him with a seven-shot deficit. Young and old: Fifty-year-old Fred Couples has a chance to become the oldest major champion in golf history, nine months after Tom Watson came within an 8-foot putt of doing it at the British Open. Now 60, Watson has put up another solid performance in a major, going into the final round with a 2-under 214. Key stat: Phil Mickelson became only the third golfer in Masters history to make backto-back eagles, joining Dan Pohl (1982) and Dustin Johnson (2009). Noteworthy: The 17th hole was a bear, with no birdies and nearly as many bogeys (20) as pars (27). Three players on the leaderboard – Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods, Ricky Barnes – all lost a stroke coming down the stretch. Quoteworthy: “It was pretty cool, that walk up. I can’t believe that ball disappeared and went in. Especially after that eagle on 13. That walk up was awesome.” – Phil Mickelson after holing out from 139 yards for his second straight eagle at the 14th hole. Tee times: 2:40 p.m., Lee Westwood, Phil Mickelson; 2:30 p.m., Tiger Woods, K.J. Choi; 2:20 p.m., Fred Couples, Hunter Mahan. Television: 2-7 p.m. today, CBS (WFMY, Ch. 2 locally).

Westwood, Mickelson highlight Masterful third round that produced an avalanche of terrific storylines AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) – Lee Westwood heard the groundshaking roars for just about everyone but him on a Saturday that sounded an awful lot like Sunday at the Masters. Phil Mickelson made consecutive eagles, and came within inches of three in a row. Tiger Woods battled back from a seven-shot deficit with three straight birdies to stay in the game. Fred Couples chipped in for eagle, keeping his hopes alive. Westwood kept his head down amid all this madness and wound up with what mattered – the lead. With his best chance ever to win that elusive major, Westwood made only one bogey and finished with a tough par for a 4-under 68 to take a oneshot lead over Mickelson into the final round of a Masters that keeps getting better. “I think I’m ready,” Westwood said. By the look of the names behind him, he better be. Westwood, No. 4 in the world and among the best without a major, was at 12-under 204. He will be in the final group with Mickelson, No. 3 in the world and the sentimental favorite at Augusta given his turbulent year at home with his wife and mother battling breast cancer.



Woods, Couples lurk in contention. 3D Right in front of them will be Woods, No. 1 in the world and playing as though five months of a humiliating sex scandal never happened. He finished with a 3-foot birdie on the last hole for a 2under 70, putting him at 8-under 208 along with K.J. Choi, who also had a 70. “I think that’s what everybody wants to see,” Westwood said. “Everybody has missed Tiger on the golf course the last five or six months, and he’s up there. Phil is up there. You’ve got 4, 3 and 1 in the world. It’s a good leaderboard, I think.” Just as exciting as the names were the cheers, too many to count. It got so crazy at one point that in the time it took Westwood to play the 11th hole with a hard-earned par, Mickelson made up four shots on him with an 8-foot eagle putt on the 13th and holing out a wedge on the 14th. Ricky Barnes holed an eagle from off the green and knocked in a 60-foot birdie putt across the 14th.

The thrills never stopped. “It was probably one of those great days in golf at a major championship,” Westwood said. “I obviously wasn’t privy to the things you have seen, but I was well aware somebody was making a charge, and I figured it was Phil. That’s what major championships are about. They’re tough ones to win because great players do great things.” The Masters hasn’t seen a leaderboard this strong for the final round since Woods and Mickelson – Nos. 1 and 2 in the world – were in the final group in 2001. Mickelson hasn’t looked great all year, the first time since 2003 he has come to Augusta without a victory. Now, he goes after a third green jacket by playing in the final group at a major for the first time his meltdown at Winged Foot in the 2006 U.S. Open. His spirits have been lifted in part by having his family – wife Amy and the three kids – with him for the first time since The Players Championship nearly a year ago, right before she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Amy Mickelson has not been to the golf course. “It’s fun having them, just being together,” he said. “It’s been a fun week.”




onventional wisdom states that the Masters doesn’t really start until the back nine on Sunday. In recent years, it seems the patented ”Sunday roars” have been too few and far between. I hope today’s final round matches yesterday and restores the roar at Augusta National. Who can forget the almost constant thunderous cheers and applause that accompanied Jack Nicklaus’ epic back-nine charge to the 1986 Masters title? How about the combination roar/gasp of

disbelief when Fred Couples’ wayward shot at No. 12 miraculously stopped on the bank during his 1992 run to the title? I still can’t believe that ball stayed out of Raes Creek. Remember 2004? Phil Mickelson and Ernie Els traded dramatic shots – good and bad – that gave us back-nine roars that echoed across half of Georgia. Year in and year out, the Sunday noise at Augusta provided unmistakable evidence of eagles and bogeys, great shots that settled five feet from the pin and others that found watery graves.

You knew a Nicklaus roar from a Tiger roar and an eagle roar from a birdie roar. Perhaps the moves to toughen Augusta National in recent years have created fewer chances for players to hit those roar-worthy shots. Or maybe patrons have forgotten how to roar. Whatever the reason, it’s time for Augusta National to come roaring back to life today.



A few days from now, Matteo Manassero will be back in high school. This weekend, though, golfing fans are getting a glimpse of a possible future champion. The 16-year-old is the youngest player ever to make the cut at the Masters, and the first amateur to do so since 1999. He won’t finish in the top 15, as he did at last year’s British Open. But his 73 on Saturday put him at 4 over for the tournament.

Busch overcomes penalty to score Nationwide win AVONDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Kyle Busch recovered from a wild sequence in which he lost the lead on a disputed restart and fell 20 seconds behind after a drive-through penalty to win the NASCAR Nationwide Series race Friday night at Phoenix International Raceway. Busch was back to 10th before the final restart with eight laps left, even after making contact with Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Joey Logano on pit road and saying on the radio that he was having transmission problems. But when the race restarted, Busch charged through the field to retake the lead in three laps and won by 1.55 seconds over Kevin Harvick. “All I know is that I paid back NASCAR by winning,� Busch said. Busch had already led 121 laps when he lost the lead on a restart that was immediately followed by an accordion-like pileup that involved at least 10 cars and brought out a nearly 10-minute red flag. Brad Keselowski, who finished third and took over the series points

lead, was on the inside on that restart on lap 137 of 200. Busch, then the leader and in control of the restart, was on the outside but went through the restart zone without accelerating. Keselowski charged ahead at the line when the green flag came out. “When you get to the first line, you have to maintain your speed. Once you get to the second line, it’s free game,� Keselowski said. “I maintained my speed and he did not. When I got to the second line, I just went. That’s the rule, and the interpretation I have of it.� Some cars behind them seemed to take the queue from Keselowski, some of them speeding up while others checked up to avoid hitting others. That created a mangled mess of cars near the start-finish line. Busch and his team argued vehemently during the red flag and ensuing caution that he should be installed the leader. Robin Pemberton, NASCAR’s vice president for competition, said Keselowski was right. Busch insisted after the

race that he stayed at the same pace and was waiting for the second line to go, instead of the first line like he had earlier in the race. “He jumped the restart,� Busch said. “This is an issue. ... It will be a discussion (with NASCAR). It’s not done yet.� When the race finally resumed on lap 145, Busch clearly jumped the restart to pass Keselowski. Busch avoided a black flag when he gave up the lead after being notified by NASCAR of that violation, but still had to serve a drive-through penalty. That dropped him to 19th spot, 20 seconds behind the lead pack. “I did the same thing he did and I got posted for it,� Busch said. Logano passed Keselowski for the lead with 21 laps left, and had built more than a 2-second lead before a yellow flag came out on lap 189. That fourlap caution bunched up the field and was the only reason Busch was able to win the race. “Definitely not without a caution,� Busch said. “Fortunately there was one.�


Gerald Wallace of the Charlotte Bobcats (3) shoots over Detroit’s Tayshaun Prince during Saturday night’s game in Charlotte.

Bobcats outlast Pistons, 99-95 CHARLOTTE (AP) — Larry Hughes scored 18 points, D.J. Augustin hit the go-ahead jumper with just over a minute left, and the Charlotte Bobcats used their depth to hold off the Detroit Pistons 9995 on Saturday night. Gerald Wallace and Stephen Jackson added 14 points apiece and Augustin had 13 for the Bobcats, who improved to 31-9 at home and kept their slim hopes alive for overtaking Miami for the sixth seed in the Eastern Conference and avoiding a first-round playoff matchup with Orlando. Ben Gordon scored 17 of his 21 points in the second half, and Jason Maxiell added 14 points for the Pistons, who missed four straight shots with

a chance to take the lead in the final minute as their three-game winning streak was snapped. Playing without ill point guard Raymond Felton, the Bobcats struggled to put away the Pistons, who had knocked off playoff teams Atlanta and Miami in the past week following their 11-game losing streak. The lead changed hands seven times in the final 5 minutes, after Detroit rallied from an 11-point third quarter deficit. Augustin, who started in Felton’s spot, hit a fadeaway with 1:11 left put Charlotte ahead 96-95 before the Pistons got four chances after three offensive rebounds. But Gordon missed twice in the sequence,

including a mid-range jumper from the right of the lane with 17 seconds left. After Wallace hit 1 of 2 free throws, Will Bynum missed a contested runner in the lane before Hughes hit two free throws with 5 seconds left. It was Hughes’ best game with Charlotte after being signed on March 13. Entering having made just 13 of his last 54 shots, Hughes shot 6 of 10 from the field and hit 4 of 5 3pointers for Charlotte, which shot 54 percent to offset 15 turnovers. Bynum and Charlie Villanueva added 12 points apiece for the shorthanded Pistons, who were again without Richard Hamilton (ankle) and Rodney Stuckey (rib).

Pacers take 10th win in 12 games INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Troy Murphy had 25 points and nine rebounds to lead the streaking Indiana Pacers to a 115-102 victory over the New Jersey Nets on Saturday night. Danny Granger scored

16 of his 22 points in the second half, and Dahntay Jones had 18 points for the Pacers, who won their fourth straight game to improve to 32-48. Indiana has won 10 of 12 to continue its last-season surge.

Brook Lopez had 20 points and Yi Jianlian added 18 points and seven rebounds for the Nets (1268), who had won five of their previous nine games for their best stretch of the season.

Power surges to IRL pole in Alabama BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Will Power will start the Indy Grand Prix of Alabama up front, the same place he’s been finishing lately. Power has won the first two IndyCar Series races

this season. He grabbed the pole Saturday with a fast speed of 118.057 mph. Penske Racing teammate Helio Castroneves (117.186) was third behind Mike Conway (117.197). Power also took the top

starting spot in St. Petersburg two weeks ago. This is his fourth career pole position. Marco Andretti (116.5050), Scott Dixon (116.038) and Takuma Sato (115.904) competed the first six.

Harris, Nats thwart Mets THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK – Willie Harris made a gameending diving catch to yet again thwart a Mets rally, well-traveled Willy Taveras drove in a career-high four runs and the Washington Nationals beat New York 4-3 on a blustery Saturday. Taveras singled and tripled in his first start for the Nationals, who signed him to a minor league contract in February after Oakland let him go. John Lannan (1-1) teetered on the brink of disaster for the second straight start, giving up three runs in five erratic innings, before Tyler Clippard set down nine of the 10 batters he faced in relief. Matt Capps made the ninth inning an adventure, giving up a leadoff single to Jose Reyes and eventually loading the bases on a pair of walks. Rod Barajas pinch hit

and lined a hard shot to left, but Willie Harris came on at a dead run and made a diving grab to end the game. It was Capps’ second save of the season.

It’s the Tiger Woods Invitational on CBS BY DAVID BAUDER AP TELEVISION WRITER

NEW YORK – The first day of Masters coverage on CBS Saturday felt like the Tiger Woods Invitational. The network made certain Woods’ every step was covered, to the point that the other golfers seemed to revolve around him. The network called Woods out, then excused him, for the type of outburst he had promised to avoid after returning to golf following his humiliating sex scandal. But for much of the afternoon, Woods’ sullen demeanor hung like a cloud over the broadcast. Only Phil Mickelson’s rush to the top, and his evident joy, provided relief. Ratings for the first two rounds of Masters coverage on ESPN showed how many people wanted to see Woods navigate the first tournament back. ESPN had just less than 5 million viewers for Thursday’s first round, when Woods was on the course for much of the live telecast. On Friday, Woods was about done with his round when ESPN’s cover-

age came on the air and an estimated 3.9 people watched, according to the Nielsen Co. An indication of how Woods’ day was going on Saturday came on the sixth hole when he reacted to one of his shots. “Tiger, you suck,” he said to himself, followed by a curse, his remarks clearly audible. “I don’t think he’s pleased,” CBS announcer Verne Lundquist said. The mini-tantrum was raised shortly after by lead anchor Jim Nantz in a discussion with analyst Nick Faldo. When Woods made his initial televised mea culpa, he said fans wouldn’t be seeing much of this anymore, Nantz said. Faldo mentioned the “increased scrutiny” Woods has been facing this week. “I’m sure he’s going to fail at times,” Faldo said. At least twice later, CBS ran slow motion replays of times when Woods clearly expressed his disgust at his game. Once, he rolled his head back with his eyes closed, then flipped his club aside. Although they appeared on the screen, announcers didn’t mention them.

Bill McAtee, who interviewed Woods after his round was finished, did not question Woods about it. By then, Woods had birdied the 18th hole, and he greeted loud cheers from the gallery with a wide smile and tip of the cap. For CBS, that ending must have proven a relief: Woods was still in it for today’s final round. CBS had promised not to pull punches in its coverage, but the words “sex” or “mistress” didn’t come up. Neither did the infamous Thanksgiving Night car wreck or any drug use. Instead, Faldo talked about how Woods’ energy to prepare for the Masters was sapped up by “so much going on in his life.” Nantz worked under the assumption that most of CBS’ viewers were familiar with the story. He said Woods had not played golf competitively since last fall, “as you know.” The big viewership on ESPN bodes well for CBS in its bid to have the 2010 Masters eclipse the previous record for the tournament. That was the 14.9 million in 2001.

Couples shows the old guy has still got it – again AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) – Fred Couples twisted one way, then the other, wincing as he tried to loosen up his aching back. It’s moments like this that make the 50-year-old feel twice his age. Get him to the Masters, however, and he plays like he’s half his age. Four years after playing in the final group, Couples is lurking again at Augusta National. His 4-under 68 on Saturday puts him five strokes behind leader Lee Westwood and four behind Phil Mickelson – pretty good for a guy more accustomed to tearing up the Champions Tour these days. “I know time flies, but (today) I have a shot,” Couples said. “I’m way behind, but I’ve heard other people talk about it, so I might as well say the same thing. If I can shoot a low score, I maybe can post a score and see what happens.” A few more shots like he had on 14 and 15 would help. He put his approach shot to about 3 feet on 14 and tapped in for a birdie. As he left the 14th tee, Couples motioned to Mickelson, playing in the group behind him, to get it go-

ing. Did Lefty ever, eagling the par-5 13 and then holing out from the 14th fairway for another eagle. “I wanted that golf ball that he holed in at 14. That’s what I wantCouples ed,” Couples said. “He couldn’t hear me, but I wanted that eagle ball.” Instead, he got one of his own. He flew the green with his second shot on the par-5 15th, leaving him at least 30 feet to the hole. He made a perfect chip and the ball rolled straight at the hole, the noise level rising the closer the ball got to the cup. When it rolled in, the crowd roared and Couples shook his fist. Fans in all three grandstands around 15 gave him a standing ovation, and Couples took off his hat and waved. “I just love this place,” he said. “I have a shot if I can shoot a crazy score.” And wouldn’t that be something for the senior set? Kenny Perry was two holes away from breaking Nicklaus’ record as the oldest winner at Augusta Na-

tional last year. Tom Watson gave fans of all ages a real treat at the British Open at Turnberry, leading much of the tournament before faltering down the stretch. “I picked (Couples) and Westwood this week,” Watson said. “I like the way Couples is playing.” Augusta really does have a way of bringing out Couples’ best – no matter what his age. He won here in 1992, of course, and has nine other top 10 finishes, including a tie for third in 2006. That was the 20th anniversary of Nicklaus’ back-nine charge to a sixth green jacket, and while “Boom Boom” isn’t the Bear, fans were thrilled to see Couples make a run of his own, playing with Mickelson in the final group. The story line petered out on the back nine, though. Two years later, Couples missed the cut at Augusta National, ending the record streak he shares with Gary Player at 23 consecutive cuts made. “To be perfectly honest with you, I missed the cut the last two years and I went away pretty frustrated because I played pretty well,” Couples said.


Coastal pounds Panthers for 14-4 win ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

CONWAY, S.C. – Coastal Carolina capitalized on five High Point University errors and rolled to a 14-4 victory in Big South Conference baseball play on Saturday at at Watson Stadium. “When you don’t play quality baseball as we didn’t defensively you aren’t going to win against this team,” said head coach Craig Cozart. “We are now in the same position as last weekend, we need to get a win in the third game and we will find a way to do that.”

Max Fulginiti singled and came around to score on a single by Sal Pezzino in the top of the second inning to tie the game 1-1 but the Chanticleers jumped out to a 6-1 lead, scoring five runs in the bottom of the second, on four hits and two Panther errors. Starting pitcher Al Yevoli gave up five runs in the second inning, all unearned. HPU chipped away at the Coastal Carolina lead. In the fourth, Matt Gantner singled and came around to score thanks to two wild pitches by Anthony Meo. With two outs on the board in the fifth inning

Murray White IV, Nate Roberts and Kyle Mahoney all singled, without a ball leaving the infield. White and Roberts came around to score when Gantner reached on an error by the second baseman, cutting the Chanticleer’s margin to 6-4. Yevoli retired the Chanticleers in order in the third and fourth innings but CCU got one run back in the bottom of the fifth. CCU tagged Yevoli for three more runs in the sixth inning before he was relieved by freshman Zach Haile. In his third start of the season and first since Feb. 27 against Fairleigh Dickin-

son. Yevoli gave up 12 runs, six earned, on 10 hits with two walks and one strikeout. Haile came on with runners on first and second. They both scored on Adam Rice’s double down the left field line. Daniel Bowman homered to left center to give Coastal Carolina a 14-4 lead at the end of six innings. High Point will play the final game in its 12-game road trip today at 2 p.m. against Coastal Carolina at Watson Stadium. The Panthers (17-15, 4-7 Big South Conference) will send freshman Jared Avidon to the mound.

Wake Forest sets bar high for next head hoops coach W

ith the firing of Dino Gaudio as head coach, Wake Forest athletics director Ron Wellman appears to setting a high bar for whoever takes over the men’s basketball program, considering the school’s historical lack of success measured by championships. An announcement of a new hire isn’t expected until next week, but Wellman has indicated SPORTS he will skip ACC meetings Tuesday Greer and Wednesday if it Smith benefits the hiring ■■■ process. Sources indicated the person could be Colorado coach Jeff Bzdelik, who hasn’t been able to turn the Buffaloes into a winner, but made the NCAA Tournament during two years at Air Force. He was a loser with the Denver Nuggets. The Boulder (Colo.) Daily Camera quoted a source as saying Bzdelik is seriously interested in the job. Bzdelik and Wellman have been acquaintances while both were coaches at Northwestern in the early 1980s. Bzdelik is a former Davidson assistant and his daughter is a student at Wake. Citing the biggest shortcomings under Gaudio, Wellman made it quite clear the bar is geared toward the postseason, a word rarely associated with the Demon Deacons until Dave Odom became coach in 1990 and Wellman took over as athletics director in 1992. It is a bar which sends a message that this will not be the Demon Deacon basketball of your father’s or grandfather’s era, back when they made their first two NCAA appearances in 1962 and 1963 (when only the conference champion qualified) and a return in 1977 was their only one in the next 18 years. It is a bar Gaudio couldn’t reach even though he did win twothirds of his games in his three years at the helm after he was promoted from assistant coach to head coach following the death of Skip Prosser in the summer of 2007. That is a winning percentage that ranks tied for fourth in the program’s history, trailing or equal to coaches from the mid 1920s and earlier. He won at a slightly better pace than Odom and Prosser but was terrible in the postseason, flaming out in the first-round of the ACC Tournament each year and suffered an embarrassing 89-64 defeat to unheralded Cleveland State in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. Wake wasn’t ready to go that night just as it wasn’t when it didn’t show up while getting waxed by Miami bin the first round of the ACC Tournament this year or in late regular season losses to struggling N.C. State or North Carolina. If you take Wellman at his word that nothing else factored into the decision, the postseason failures weighed more heavily than the regular-season accomplishments. Wellman wants to win conference championships, as Jim Grobe did in football four years ago, and be a factor in NCAA play. Judging from his words, the postseason is all that matters now. “College basketball today is different than it was 20-30 years ago,” Wellman said when reminded that Mike Krzyzewski strug-

gled his first four seasons. “College basketball is evolving to a postseasontype scenario. The regular season is important and exciting but it positions Bzdelik you for the postseason. There’s more emphasis than in any time in history of college basketball. There is an escalation in its importance with each year.” He didn’t deny the escalation is tied to television and the $6 billion, 11-year contract with CBS, which is paying $545 million per year, money that is divided among the schools and is crucial to athletic department budgets. “You look at TV and everything is televised,” Wellman said. “You look at the past and that might not have been the scenario. The money involved with it, the postseason becomes very important to your program and to your conference. It is a trickle down from the NBA. They point to the postseason. While we may or may not like that trend, it is a reality. We cannot live in a cocoon where we are not recognizing what the reality of this time is.” It will be interesting to see what Wellman’s standard for postseason success will be. Odom has the two ACC tourney titles under the Wellman tenure (back-to-back crowns after the 1995 and 1996 seasons). Those are also the last two times the Deacons have reached the finals. They were first-round losers seven times under Odom, including his first four years. Prosser made the semifinals four times and lost in opening games twice. As far as NCAA success, Wake will in 2012 mark the 50th anniversary of its only final four appearance next season. Their best since: regional finals appearances in 1977 and 1984 under Carl Tacy and in 1996 with Odom. They reached the Sweet 16 two other times – under Odom in 1995 and under Prosser in 2004 during the Chris Paul years. Paul left after an unexpected second-round exit the following year, and Wake has been trying to get back on its feet since. Bzdelik’s record? He was fired after a couple of season with the Denver Nuggets, went to the NCAA show during two years art Air Force but hasn’t been able to turn Colorado into a winner in three seasons. Wellman is confident that getting rid of Gaudio after three seasons won’t hurt in efforts to land a new coach. “They will see that we are pretty patient with coaches. I try to be patient with coaches,” Wellman said. “Maybe that is because I was a coach but we try to be patient with coaches. Our track record, I believe, who suggest that. A coaching candidate is going to look at those factors. A candidate is going to ask about the long term objectives of the program and we are going to talk about that specifically. If a candidate doesn’t want to run a championship caliber program or doesn’t believe that Wake Forest can be a championship-caliber program, well, that’s not good enough. We want someone who absolutely believes that is whether Wake Forest belongs and we want someone who can take it there.” That should be pretty evident to the new coach, considering Wellman had little patience when Gaudio couldn’t. | 888-3519

Newman, Jones highlight Deacon scrimmage ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

WINSTON-SALEM – Jimmy Newman kicked field goals of 52 and 36 yards and Skylar Jones threw a 10-yard scoring pass to Marshall Williams to highlight Wake Forest’s scrimmage Saturday morning at BB&T Field. The Demon Deacons scrimmaged for just over an hour with four different quarterbacks taking turns at running the offense. Jones saw perhaps the greatest amount of time at quarterback, leading four offensive possessions. Three other quarterbacks, including Turner Faulk, Patrick Thompson and converted cornerback D.J. Jones, each led two drives. “We competed really hard today,” said head coach Jim Grobe. “I thought our energy was better. I think we’ll find several guys improved today. I liked the energy we had. Our quarterbacks seemed a little calmer today, made some throws. We missed some reads and that’s going to happen because we’re using so many kids right now. I thought our offensive line actually gave the quarterbacks a chance from time to time to do some things. We hadn’t been doing that very well. Defensively, we’re rolling a lot of

guys in, we’ve changed some guys positionwise. We’ve changed a lot of guys positionwise this spring. But overall, I thought we had a good scrimmage.” Jones completed six of seven passes for 64 yards, including the touchdown to Marshall Williams. Jones rolled out and faked a run, drawing the safety to leave Williams all alone in the end zone. Faulk completed all three of his pass attempts for 26 yards while Jones connected on two of six attempts for 27 yards. Thompson missed on both of his pass attempts. Quarterback Ted Stachitas missed the scrimmage with a continuing hamstring injury while Brendan Cross was sidelined after suffering a slight concussion in practice on Thursday. The Deacons had nine different players carry the ball from scrimmage. Fullback Tommy Bohanon had three carries for 30 yards and also had a nine-yard reception. Jones led the way with 11 carries and netted 34 yards, the majority coming on a 16-yard carry. Josh Adams carried twice for 15 yards, Willie Dixon had six carries and netted one yard while Brandon Pendergrass finished with 20 yards on four carries. Fullback Roger Khouri had 10 yards on two carries.

QBs, defense take center stage for Tar Heels CHAPEL HILL (AP) – North Carolina’s defensive players wrapped up Saturday’s spring game looking ready to lead the way just like everyone expects. As for the quarterbacks, well, T.J. Yates didn’t do much to calm fans frustrated with the team’s offensive struggles. Mywan Jackson had two interceptions that helped the

White team beat Blue 17-0 in the scrimmage to wrap up spring drills, while Michael McAdoo was credited with four sacks and an interception of his own. Meanwhile, redshirt freshman Bryn Renner outplayed Yates in what was a sluggish afternoon for both offenses. The coaching staff divided up the teams to mix starters on both squads, and kept basic plans on both of-

fense and defense to evaluate individual matchups for the game – which drew more than 29,000 fans to Kenan Stadium and was televised by ESPN. The strong-armed Renner completed 15 of 21 passes for 184 yards with a touchdown and an interception for White. Yates, a three-year starter, completed 15 of 26 passes for 122 yards and one interception for Blue.

Kenny Carter lands award after a difficult year E

very day throughout his 27-year coaching career, Kenny Carter’s message of dedication and hard work got drilled into his players at High Point Central. That’s why the girls basketball coach never considered taking time off when he suffered a painful injury during the Bison win at T. Wingate Andrews on Jan. 23. He had the surgery to repair the torn Achilles tendon. He returned to practice, feeling helpless as he leaned against the wall on crutches. He returned to the sideline for games. “It was a struggle, but it was important to me to show them how important they were to me and how important the game was, that whatever your limitations you’ve got to compete with everything you’ve got,” Carter said of the message he wanted to send his players. And hard as it may be for some folks to believe, the high-strung, incredibly animated coach forgot all about that injured foot during a few games. He praised assistant coaches Dwain Waddell and Jetanna McClain for “pulling me back down. That adrenaline rush, I’d find myself jumping up and hopping on one leg,” Carter admitted with a laugh. Call that passion for the game his Achilles heel. “He had a chance on a couple occasions to tear his other one,” remarked Bison athletic director Mike Cook. “He was pretty much the same Kenny Carter. It would have been hard for him to be any other way.” Perhaps that’s why it seems so fitting for Carter to have received a prestigious award at the conclusion of the season. The Women’s Basketball Coaches Association recently honored Carter as its Coach of the Year for District 3, which covers all of North and South Carolina, Virginia and Maryland. Central enjoyed a 14-0 start last winter before settling for a 22-5 record and second-round exit from the 4A playoffs. Unlike years past, with a bevy of college-bound players racing up and down the court, this Bison squad consisted of relative unknowns. The team was small, and what little depth Carter had at the start of the year was lost to injury and attrition along the way. The job Carter did with this team and these players impressed Brian Robinson enough to nominate Carter. And this season’s work, along with the five state championships and an overall won-loss record of about 575-125, led the nine-member national WBCA

committee to tab Carter as the district’s top coach. “Kenny’s had some strong teams over the years,” said Robinson, the Bishop McGuinness girls coach. “This year he didn’t have maybe the size and depth he’s had in the past, but they still managed to be successful. It would have been interesting to see how far SPORTS they’d gone if they hadn’t had so many injuries. Steve “Sometimes,” Robinson added, “you Hanf can show your true coaching ability ■■■ when you might not have the three, four Division I players walking around.” The nine award winners from each district had their biographies picked over a second time to determine the national coach of the year honorees. The top four were selected to coach the WBCA All-American game, held last weekend in San Antonio, Texas, in conjunction with the NCAA Final Four. Carter didn’t make that trip, although Robinson allowed that the Central leader “was close.” For his part, Carter was surprised at receiving the award, yet understood the process. He served on the WBCA committee three years ago before stepping aside due to the time involved in scouting nominees from four states to play in the All-American game as well as finding the region’s most deserving coaches. “You’d think someone would nominate you after you hung a few banners and not be this far down the line – it typically follows something like that,” Carter said. “But it’s also the total body of work over a period of time. It boggles your mind some of the numbers coaches across the country have put up. For me, it’s really an honor to be considered with some of these folks.” Five years have passed since Central last played for a state championship, and it’s been eight years since the last of Carter’s five NCHSAA titles. His 22-year run of 20-win campaigns ended two seasons ago, so perhaps this award actually comes at a good time. “It’s kind of a gratifying thing having gone through some of the things we’ve gone through at Central the last few years,” Carter offered. “It kind of validates the whole body of work as we try to get back to some of the standards I was accustomed to.” Carter’s sideline antics came during the best of

times and the worst over his 24-year head-coaching career. Remarkably, the injury he suffered in January came about in a most mundane way. The coach recalls being in a crouch watching as one of his players tried to save a ball from going out of bounds under the basket. When the whistle blew for the change of possession, Carter stood up, pivoted to turn and ... “It felt like someone took an ax and just chopped the back of my heel,” he said. Carter fell to the floor and said the intense pain left him disoriented for several minutes. Eventually, he knew from having taught sports medicine classes over the years that he’d more than likely torn his Achilles. The fact that it was his left foot allowed him to drive throughout the ordeal, but the pain from the injury, having to keep the leg elevated some two to three weeks, not being able to take a shower, managing crutches and enduring rehab proved difficult. Nearly three months later, Carter now can walk stiffly – without a lot of balance – on level surfaces in a protective boot. He hopes to lose that impediment next week and get back his normal flexibility and full range of motion in July. That would take Carter into the summer hoops circuit, just ahead of what would be his 25th school year leading High Point Central’s girls basketball team and 29th year teaching. “I love it, it’s a great place to teach, I love my classes,” said the 51-year-old Carter. “I would love to teach another 10 years and coach another five.” A passion for the game and drive for success. There’s that weakness, his Achilles heel. With a rebuilt Achilles tendon to go along with his WBCA Coach of the Year award, perhaps Carter can continue prowling the sidelines with the same kind of energy he’s shown the past quarter-century. “It’s confirmation again that he’s one of the best women’s basketball coaches in the history of the state of North Carolina,” said Cook, who attended Central as a student and was 10 years old the first time he saw Carter coach. “You don’t hang five championship banners and turn out the kinds of players he has and not be something special.” | 888-3526

Former Wesleyan Pitt assistant Herrion hired at Marshall hoops standout picks DCCC BY ZACH KEPLEY THOMASVILLE TIMES

LEXINGTON – Only a couple of weeks removed from a phenomenal 200910 basketball season, Davidson County Community College coach Matt Ridge is out on the recruiting trail, looking to bring in more talent for next season. Friday afternoon at Brinkley Gym, he signed a pair he hopes can help the Storm make another appearance in the NJCAA National Tournament. Former Wesleyan Christian Academy standout James Robbins joins the Storm by way of Liberty University, where Robbins played football last season. Robbins stands 6-foot-6 and can play the perimeter if needed. In three years of varsity basketball for Wesleyan, Robbins averaged 18.2 points per game, and as a senior he averaged nine rebounds per game. “He is a versatile player that can play inside and out,” said Ridge. “He shoots it better than you might think at 6-6, and is really strong and does not mind contact at all.” Robbins was on the DCCC radar coming out

of high school, but opted to attend Liberty. Ridge is pleased to have a second chance. “We recruited him out of high school and did not get him, so we are blessed now to get him,” said Ridge, adding that Robbins was the recipient of the Wendy’s High School Heisman award, which recognizes students for athletic and academic honors as well as community service. “We are excited not only about his ability but his character.” Christian Lawrence, a wing player from South Point High School in Belmont, just outside of Charlotte, also joins the Storm program. His accolades are numerous after averaging 17.8 points and nearly eight rebounds per game his senior season. He is a two-time all-conference performer and was named team MVP the last two seasons. “The word I would use to describe him is ‘shooter,’ ” said Ridge. “He can flat-out shoot it. The first time I went to see him he made six 3s. He is extremely versatile and is long enough and big enough to battle on the boards. I think he will compete for playing time next year.”

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) – Tom Herrion was ready to become a head coach again, even if it meant leaving a successful program at Pittsburgh. The former Panthers associate head coach was introduced as Marshall’s new coach Saturday. Herrion was given a five-year con-

CINCINNATI (AP) — An Ohio high school softball coach threw a curve at the rival team’s coach when he dropped to one knee on the diamond and asked for her hand in marriage. Glen Este High School varsity coach Tim Gregory and Milford High School coach Christy Foster had been dating

more than two years before Wednesday’s proposal. Gregory says “softball is really what brought us together.” Foster, of course, said yes to the proposal and called it perfect. The ensuing game wasn’t, though. Gregory’s team won 1 to 0.

“It was clear as day that I needed to be here, that we needed to take this opportunity and to elevate our basketball program,” Herrion said. “We are here to elevate. I told Dr. Kopp it’s not to rebuild, but to continue to restore and build on and elevate the program to greater heights.”

Randleman Lake proves a worthy fishing hole


t seemed like it would never happen, but Randleman Lake opened the first of March. I first became aware of the project in news reports as the Randleman Dam. The project was to build a dam across Deep River and create another water resource for Greensboro. In recent weeks, I’ve driven over the lake and even mentioned that, in a few years when SPORTS the fishing stock has had time to Dick develop, it’ll be a Jones nice lake to fish. I’ll ■■■ admit, I’m no biologist and I haven’t investigated the stocking program at Randleman Lake. So, like many other times in my life, I was wrong. Randleman Lake won’t require five or 10 years to become a great fishing lake because it’s a great fishing lake right now. This week, Jeremy Yoemans, of High Point Auto Salvage, was told by customers coming in the shop how good the fishing was. Keith and Wesley Parsley joined Jeremy and headed for the lake last Wednesday. When they got to the lake at 11:30 in the morning, they had to wait an hour and 45 minutes to launch, because there’s a limit of 100 boats on the lake at any given time. When the lake is full, you don’t get to launch until the next guy loads. You’d think the wait would be pretty unpopular but the fishing was so good, Jeremy didn’t complain. In fact, I’d say the fishing was downright spectacular. The three anglers caught 15 bass in less than two hours, with the best fish going five pounds and a couple more going four. “This is breakout time for bass right now,” Jerry Royals, a marina employee at Randleman Lake’s PTRWA boat ramp said. “Anglers are lined up at the gate every morning and we’ve run over a hundred boats a day since the weather got nice.” Royals said. “Anglers have been catching their limits and more.” Royals said. “The bass length limit is 14” with a creel limit of five. Most of our fishermen are catch and release fishermen who know keeping the fish in the lake is the way to keep the fishing hot. We get a lot of first class bass anglers and very few fish are being taken out. So far, the biggest confirmed fish was 10 pounds, seven ounces with an 11-pounder reported weighed on a spring scale, but he flipped back into the lake when the angler tried to put him into the live well to show him off,” Royals chuckled. Royals said most anglers are tight lipped about what’s working best for them but the rumor I hear is a black and silver spinner bait is a good place to start. The Yoemans and Parsley party put silver and black medium running Rattletraps to good use. “We were throwing close along the bank,” Parsley said. “The fish were right next to the bank, close to cover. The water was pretty murky and we were finding the fish at mid-depth. There’s a lot of cover on the bottom and along that cover is where the fish were. Yoemans added: “We would just toss in along the tops of bushes showing above the water and the fish would hit. It really didn’t seem like there were a hundred boats on the lake. It wasn’t really crowded at all. We fished the Muddy Creek side and the water was murky, so as it clears up, you might consider more muted colors.” Royals reports good catches from both sides of the lake. “It’s just a matter of finding them,” he said. “The lake was stocked a little over three years ago with largemouth and channel cats. There’s a healthy shad population from the river, though we didn’t stock them.” Randleman Lake is open Wednesday through Sunday from 7 a.m to 7 p.m. during April and will go to 6 a.m to 8:00 p.m. for most of the summer beginning in May. Fishing is $15 a day with



Since there’s no motorized boat traffic above Highway 62, Randleman Lake represents a great opportunity for kayak and canoe fishermen. Only paddled and electric powered boats are allowed upstream of Highway 62. This means the fishing there should be hot even when the pressure slows the bite down on the lower lake. This week, I talked to Berry Bynum, the park manager at Southwest Park, and he reported several eight pound bass have been landed in the no gas motor area and there was a report of a ten pound fish. In addition to being able to launch your Jon boat, canoe, or kayak, you can also rent them. The boats available for rent include, canoes, kayaks, and ten and fourteen foot Jon boats with trolling motors and batteries available. Prices start at $8.00 for a kayak to $35.00 for a 14 foot Jon boat with a trolling motor and battery. Launch fees for your own boat are $6.00 for Jon boats and $4.00 for canoes and kayaks. Bynum reminded me that Southwest Guilford Park is a complete park with picnic shelters, 2 ball fields, 3 playgrounds, and 2.6 miles of hiking and biking trails.

Right where he belonged SPECIAL | HPE

Ngoc Kreider was photographed by Mike Callahan in 1969 at An Lac orphanage in Vietnam.

Mike Callahan took his 40-year-old pictures to a reunion of adopted Vietnamese children, and the High Point photographer was reunited with a former subject BY JIMMY TOMLIN ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER


IGH POINT – Forty years ago, Mike Callahan considered himself an interloper – a stranger who did not belong. An official U.S. Army photographer during the Vietnam War, Callahan snapped thousands of pictures during his six-month tour of duty with the 1st Infantry Division, 221st Signal Battalion. He captured, in stark black-and-white, the images of war, from young men engaged in horrific firefights to bodies being carried from the battlefield. Yet those photos – as graphic as they may have been – were not the ones that troubled Callahan’s conscience. He had to shoot those – commander’s orders. The photos that haunted Callahan 40 years ago – that have continued to haunt

’I remember when I saw these children, I felt like I was seeing something I wasn’t supposed to witness.’ Mike Callahan Former U.S. Army photographer him in recent years, after he discovered them in a box in his basement – were the ones he shot one December day in 1969 at An Lac, an orphanage in Saigon for Vietnamese children who had been orphaned by the war in their homeland. The photos themselves are priceless glimpses of children being children – climbing all over visiting soldiers, cutting up with one another, or simply mugging for the camera. In some of the orphans, though,

Mike Callahan poses at recent Fort Benning reunion with Ngoc Kreider (left) and Amy Flynn, another adoptee from An Lac. there’s sadness, an ineffable emptiness, in their eyes – which likely contributes to Callahan’s sense of being somewhere he didn’t belong. “I remember when I saw these children, I felt like I was seeing something I wasn’t supposed to witness,” the 62-year-old High Point man says. “I had this detached feeling, like I was trespassing. And whenever I’ve looked at the pictures since then, I’ve always had that same feeling.” Two weeks ago, though – some four decades after his visit to An Lac – Callahan

came to an important realization: Maybe he wasn’t an interloper after all. **** The occasion was the 35th anniversary of Operation Babylift, the mass evacuation of thousands of children from South Vietnam – including 219 from An Lac – before the fall of Saigon. About 60 of those 219 orphans, all of

Car’s navigation system has too much information D

ear Abby: I bought a used car with a navigation system last week and noticed that the previous owner’s information was still embedded in the system. Abby, I had that man’s home address, the addresses of his friends, his bank, his workplace – every place he had gone. Please inform your readers that if they sell a car with a navigation system, they should first delete all of their information. Car dealerships should also be aware of this and, perhaps, erase the information from the system as part of their vehicle inspection. – Jennifer in Lee’s Summit, Mo. Dear Jennifer: Your letter raised some eyebrows among me and my staff, so we canvassed some of the used car dealerships in the Los Angeles area. They’re already aware of it. Those we spoke to stated that they are not legally required to delete information from a


navigation system, and all agreed that the seller is responsible for removing the information before selling the car. I am sure many readers will thank you for the warning.

Dear Abby: I’m 18 and a senior in high school. I do not drink and don’t plan on ■■■ drinking when prom time comes around. My problem is, I’m not sure whether or not my date will want to. I don’t want to be around alcohol, and I especially do not want to have a drunk date I have to sober up before I can take her home, which might upset her parents if it’s after curfew. So how do I find out if my potential prom date is a drinker before I ask her to the prom? – Doesn’t Drink in South Carolina Dear Abby

Dear Doesn’t Drink: I assume you won’t be inviting a total stranger. Start talking with some of the girls you’re considering inviting and ask them how they feel about drinking alcohol. Or, let them know how you feel about drinking, and that you don’t like hanging around with people who do. P.S. If you do find yourself with a girl who gets drunk, you should have no hesitation about returning her to her parents in that condition. And if you get any grief, point out that you are cold sober and their daughter imbibed against your wishes, too. Then let them deal with her. Dear Abby: I have been with my girlfriend for a couple of years. During this time I have become increasingly convinced that if I were ever to leave her, she would kill herself. I love her, but the thought that I couldn’t ever leave her without her

killing herself is not pleasant. She doesn’t have many friends she can rely on. I always tell her how pleased I am when she hangs out with friends without me, because she doesn’t do it often enough. What do I do when the girl I love makes serious threats of suicide if I were ever to break up with her? – Hostage in Texas Dear Hostage: Here’s what you do: Tell her that what she is saying is crazy thinking, and that if she’s being serious she needs to discuss her hyperdependence with a mental health professional. You should also tell her that unless she does so immediately, your relationship with her is on borrowed time. Your signature speaks volumes, because as long as this woman can subject you to emotional blackmail – and that’s what she is doing – you are, indeed, her hostage.

Medicare Part B premium varies



A. The standard Medicare Part B monthly premium is $110.50 in 2010. However, because there was no costof-living adjustment in 2010, some beneficiaries are paying less than the standard premium. The Department of Health and Human Services determines the Medicare Part B premium. The premiums paid by beneficiaries enrolled in Medicare Part B cover physician services, outpatient hospital services, certain home health services, durable medical equipment, and other items. For most beneficiaries, the government pays a substantial portion – about 75 percent of the Part B standard premium – and the beneficiary pays the remainder. Since 2007, higher

income beneficiaries have been paying a larger percentage of their Part B premium based on income they report to the Internal Revenue Service. In 2010, a small number of beneficiaries with higher incomes (individuals with income exceeding $85,000 and married couples with income exceeding $170,000) will pay a monthly premium equal to 35, 50, 65, or 80 percent of the total cost, depending on what they reported to the IRS. However, the higher premium affects less than 5 percent of Medicare beneficiaries, so most people newly enrolled for Medicare will pay the standard premium without an income-related adjustment.

After ear gets cleaned, cat struggles



Vietnamese adoptees come together FROM PAGE 1E


ear Dr. Fox: My cat Gracie is 3 years old. When I took her for her annual checkup, they found she had some nasty ears. The technician showed me how to clean them. Cotton balls saturated with a cleaning solution were stuffed in her ears and then massaged. The procedure was repeated with a dry cotton ball. The next ANIMAL morning, I found DOCTOR Gracie staggering Dr. Michael and falling Fox over. We ■■■ were waiting for the vet when they opened. After ruling out a stroke and discussing the ear cleaning, we were instructed to keep an eye on her for the next few days and, if there was no improvement, to bring her back in. No explanation was ever given as to what was done to her ears that caused the problem. After several upsetting days for her and us, she was finally back to normal. Can you offer any suggestions as to why this to happened to her? I am supposed to clean her ears periodically, but I’m afraid to attempt it now. – B.J.B., Chesapeake, Va. Dear B.J.B.: Normal ear cleaning does not usually bring on the acute middle-ear syndrome that affected your cat’s balance for a few days. When infection and/or ear-mite parasites have destroyed the eardrum or the tympanum, cleaning solution can seep into the deeper parts of the ear and this can cause impaired hearing and balance. You should consider yourself fortunate that your cat’s external ear disease was diagnosed and a treatment regimen initiated; she could have lost her hearing in one or both ears and have permanent neurological disability affecting her normal balance and gait. To be on the safe side, a broad-spectrum antibiotic should be prescribed, along with a probiotics supplement and anti-inflammatory fish oil such as Nordic Naturals or New Chapter’s salmon.

whom were meeting at Fort Benning, Ga., for a reunion and to honor Betty Tisdale, the so-called “Angel of Saigon” who had helped coordinate their airlift out of Vietnam in April 1975. Tisdale, having reconnected with Callahan a few years ago, had invited him to attend the reunion and bring his photos. Just maybe, she’d said, one of the orphans will see himself in the photos. “I certainly thought that was possible and hoped it would happen, but I really didn’t know what to expect,” Callahan says. Callahan took along more than 300 photographs – the three dozen or so original images, plus about 10 copies of each – as well as some 30 CD’s containing all of the images. When he arrived at the reunion, he laid them all out on a table for the Vietnamese adoptees to look through and, if they wished, take home. “I ended up burning about 30 or 40 more CD’s,” he recalls, “because people were taking them like crazy.” Before long, a Vietnamese woman on crutches caught Callahan’s eye, triggering a memory of a young girl on crutches he’d photographed at An Lac. Could it be? Callahan returned to the table of his photos and selected one of a little girl, about 7 years old, on crutches. He returned to where he’d seen the woman and compared her face to the one in the photo. Maybe. Finally, he walked over to the woman and, without even introducing himself, held out the photo.


David Dykes, an adoptee from An Lac, told Mike Callahan, “I never saw pictures of where I came from.” “That’s me!” she cried. “I’ve never seen this picture. Where did you get it?” Callahan calmly replied, “It came from my camera 40 years ago.” He and the woman, Ngoc Kreider, talked for several minutes, and Callahan even met her adoptive mother, Kathy Kreider. He describes the reunion as not necessarily emotional, but mutually rewarding. “I was just thrilled,” he says, “and she was, too.” **** Throughout the reunion, Callahan met many of the An Lac adoptees, but – to his knowledge, at least – no one else he had photographed. There were,

however, other highlights. Consider, for example, the adoptee he met who refused to smile and who candidly admitted her husband had made her attend the reunion. As Saigon was falling, she told Callahan, she’d hidden from Tisdale because she didn’t want to come to the United States. By the end of the reunion, however – after a weekend of reuniting with other adoptees and rediscovering her heritage – she smiled broadly at Callahan. “Cindy, you’re glad you came, aren’t you?” Callahan said, and she hastily replied, “Oh, yeah.” Then David Dykes, another adoptee, approached Callahan, holding his infant son, and thanked him for bringing the

photos to the reunion. “Thank you for my heritage,” the young man said. The comment puzzled Callahan, and the man continued, “I never saw pictures of where I came from, and one of these days I’m going to show them to my son.” Overcome with emotion, Callahan managed to mumble, “You kids gave us a lot more than we ever gave you.” Callahan still gets a little misty-eyed as he thinks about the discovery he made at the reunion. “I came away from the reunion no longer feeling like a trespasser,” he says softly. “I look back now, and I think I was supposed to be there.” | 888-3579

Cyclorama at center of debate


ETTYSBURG, Pa. (AP) – Lovers of modern architecture have won a round in their fight to preserve a halfcentury-old building at Gettysburg despite efforts by the Civil War purists to demolish the structure to restore the battlefield to its original appearance. The National Park Service has been seeking for a decade to demolish the Cyclorama Building, built in 1958 by famed modernist architect Richard Neutra to house a massive circular painting of the famous 1863 battle which has been relocated. The building is near one of the highest points on Cemetery Ridge, a key defensive position where nearly 1,000 Union soldiers were killed or wounded during Pickett’s Charge. The National Parks Service would like to remove the building to preserve the battlesite, but an architectural preservation group says the building is also historically important. A federal judge in Washington ruled last week that the park service did not follow procedure on the matter. U.S. District Court Judge Thomas Hogan told the park that it must go back and reconsider its 1999 decision to raze the building before it can take any action to knock down the structure. In March 2009, U.S. Magistrate Judge Alan Kay recommended that the U.S. District Court rule in favor of the suit by the Recent Past Preservation Network and ordered the park to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement evaluating the potential impacts and review alternatives to demolition. Neither Gettysburg National Military Park nor the National Park Service has commented on the decision. Andrew Ames, a spokesman for the U.S. Department of Justice, said the agency is reviewing it and has not decided on the government’s next step. Los Angeles architect Dion Neutra, who worked alongside his father on the center a half-century ago, said the Cyclorama was “way up� on his father’s list of the most important buildings of his career. Architectural luminaries like Frank Gehry and Robert A.M. Stern have agreed, sending letters in support of preserving it. Neutra said his father had a broader vision for the museum than simply housing the 377-foot long, 40-foot high painting depicting Pickett’s Charge. “He wanted to commemorate the Gettysburg Address as opposed to just commemorating the battle,� he said.


On a rented motorcycle, Chris Holman and his 77-year-old mother, Betty, approach Valley of Fire State Park near Las Vegas.

Renting motorcycle enhances high-adventure touring BY GLENN ADAMS ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER


ALLEY OF FIRE STATE PARK, Nev. – If you love touring by motorcycle, but your destination is too far from home to take your bike, a rental may be the perfect alternative. Motorcycle rentals are available almost anywhere worth seeing, whether it’s riding from Chicago to Los Angeles on Route 66, through northwest Canada to Alaska, or even in the Himalayas or the Alps. My choice was a Harley-Davidson for a ride through an expanse of desert in southern Nevada, where the scorching summer temperatures were matched only by the breathtaking vistas. Petrified sand dunes have been shaped here over the millennia into red formations with illusions of flames that give the place its name and feel: Valley of Fire. My trip started in Las Vegas, where no fewer than three dealerships

offer motorcycle rentals. I took a deep breath when I first gazed at the 1,500-cubic centimeter bike I rented, twice the size of the 750-cubic centimeter BMW I’ve driven for 33 years – and a tad bigger than the motor in at least one car I’ve owned. (Cubic centimeters are a measure of engine power in a motorcycle, like horsepower in a car engine.) But as I became accustomed to the feel of the big machine, I was grateful for its power and weight, which kept the machine stable as it cut effortlessly through gusts of blast-furnace wind that whipped across the highway. The trip was a family affair, with my wife riding with me; two of her brothers, each driving, and her sister-in-law, who proved to be quite adept at snapping photos while driving her machine one-handed. A note for the faint of heart: My 77-year-old motherin-law went along too, riding on the back of her son’s bike.

Leaving the glitz, gambling and neon 40 miles behind us, we stopped at a cantina that specialized in three items: Beer, fireworks and slot machines. For us, it was a water break. With the temperature already over 100 degrees and headed up to 115, we needed all of the bottled water we’d socked away in our saddlebags and drank at every possible opportunity. The shimmering twolane highway led to the park, where the roads cut sweeping swaths and tight S-turns through the highs and lows of the valley. We sidetracked to the White Domes Trail, which offers vistas of towering, multicolored formations molded over time by erosion and wind. Back on the main trail, we passed mountain ridges rising from the flatlands where creosote and burro bush were the main inhabitants, aside from the occasional coyote, roadrunner and lizard. There’s no store or gas





station in these parts, so a ride to Overton, a sunbaked town northeast of the park, was necessary to fill our tanks, cool off and rehydrate ourselves. The importance of water can’t be overstated, and in our case we hired an air-conditioned chase car to follow us. That proved to be the right decision, because before our 150-mile trip was over, three of our riders were near heat exhaustion and off the bikes for a cooler ride back to Las Vegas. The desert ride is just a taste of what the avid biker can sample on a rental. Companies such as EagleRider, Ayres Adventures and Alaska Rider offer rentals, selfguided or guided tours

on a variety motorcycles in an array of settings. Ours was a fairly simple rental, with no set itinerary and just a bike for 24 hours. My bill, including taxes and $30 supplemental insurance, came to $196.56. But rental tours can get a lot more elaborate in an industry that seems as boundless as the American West.

iPad easier on airport screener’s eyes ATLANTA (AP) – Apple’s iPad tablet is friendlier than a traditional laptop when it comes to airport security. The Transportation Security Administration said Tuesday that in general you should not need to remove your iPad from your bag. That’s because it’s relatively small and people who carry the device often don’t have bulky accessories like plugs and external drives that clutter the image when computer bags are screened. Screeners may still ask you to remove your iPad if they can’t get a clear image of the device. Apple delivered more than 300,000 iPads on April 3, the first day the device went on sale in stores. The iPad is not a personal computer, but it does allow users to do several of the key functions they can do on a computer, like send e-mail, watch movies and surf the Internet. The models currently sold connect to the Internet using Wi-Fi; prices start at $499. A second wave of buyers may emerge when Apple starts selling versions that can also get online using cellular networks.

High Point, NC. Mrs. Cook is the former Bobbie Jean Marlowe of Trinity, NC. The couple have two children, Danielle Cook Mincey and Whitney Nicole Cook, both of Archdale, NC; and one grandchild. Mr. Cook is employed with Thomas Built Buses. Mrs. Cook is employed with Piedmont Electric.

Fetal alcohol syndrome is a preventable tragedy D

ear Dr. Donohue: I am giving my opinion on fetal alcohol syndrome. Having adopted children with FAS, I know firsthand the struggles that they face for the rest of their lives. Any drink during pregnancy is too many. FAS is a totally preventable condition but a lifetime sentence. – D.M. The public needs constant reminding of fetal alcohol syndrome. It is a preventable tragedy, and the one who is the

victim has no say in preventing it. It happens to far too many babies – one or two infants out of every 1,000 newborns. Those who are HEALTH leaders in this field plead with Dr. Paul women not to Donohue drink at all dur■■■ ing pregnancy or when trying to become pregnant. The frequency

and the amount of alcohol drunk influence the severity of the syndrome. No one knows what is a “dangerous” level of alcohol. Until that can be quantified, pregnant women should regard any alcohol as a toxin to their infant and therefore abstain from all alcoholic drinks. FAS stunts the growth of the fetus and of the child later in life. The baby’s head is smaller than it should be. Certain facial abnormalities occur: The corner of the eyes next to the nose can

be covered with a fold of skin, the upper and lower jaws are smaller than normal, the upper lip is unusually thin, and the indentation between the nose and upper lip isn’t present. Heart defects are possible. The child’s ability to learn is greatly reduced.

Bed-wetting problem may respond to medication


uestion: What causes a child to wet the bed? Our 5year-old soaks his sheets nearly every night, which drives me crazy.

Question: I get so mad at my kid for wetting the bed. Every morning I have to strip and wash his bedding and paja-


Dr. Dobson: Most certainly ■■■ not! Unless your child’s bed-wetting is an act of defiance occurring after he is awake, which I doubt, his enuresis is an involuntary act for which he is not responsible. Punishment under those circumstances is dangerous and unfair. Your son is humiliated by waking up wet anyway, and the older he gets, the more foolish he will feel about it. The bed wetter needs reassurance and patience from parents, and they should be there for him or her. They would be wise to try to conceal the embarrassing problem from those who would laugh at him. Even good-natured humor within the family, associated with bed-wetting, is often very painful. Dr. James Dobson

Question: Aside from medical help, what suggestions do you have for dealing with enuresis?

DR. DOBSON is founder and Chairman Emeritus of the nonprofit organization Focus on the Family, Colorado Springs, Colo. 80995 (www.focusonthefamily. org). Questions and answers are excerpted from “Complete Marriage and Family Home Reference Guide” and “Bringing Up Boys,” both published by Tyndale House.

Dr. Dobson: There are other remedies that sometimes work, such as electronic devices that ring a bell and awaken the child when the urine completes an electrical circuit. This conditions a child to associate the feeling of needing to urinate with the bell that awakens him. I have seen some dramatic success stories where “hardcore” bed-wetters were cured within a few weeks using such a device. Trying it certainly can’t hurt. Until the problem is solved, I hope you can keep your frustrations at a minimum. A smile sometimes helps. I received a letter from a mother who wrote down her three- year-old son’s bedtime prayer. He said, “Now I lay me down to sleep. I close my eyes; I wet the bed.”


Dr. Dobson: There are about five to seven million kids in the United States who wet the bed nightly. They are a misunderstood lot. Many of their parents believe that their bed-wetting is deliberate and that it can be eliminated by punishment. Others think these kids are just too lazy to go to the bathroom. These are wrong and unfortunate notions. Bed-wetting is often caused by medical factors, such as a small bladder, physical immaturity or other physical conditions. That’s why you should begin by consulting a pediatrician or a urologist when bedwetting starts. Many of the kids can be helped or cured by medication. For other boys and girls, the problem is emotional in origin. Any change in the psychological environment of the home may produce midnight moisture. During summer camps conducted for young children, the directors routinely put plastic mattress covers on the beds of all the little visitors. The anxiety associated with being away from home apparently creates a high probability of bed-wetting during the first few nights, and it is particularly risky to be sleeping on the lower level of bunk beds. There is a third factor that I feel is a frequent cause of enuresis. During children’s toddler years, they wet the bed simply because they are too immature to maintain nighttime bladder control. Some parents, in an effort to head off another episode, begin getting these kids up at night to go to the potty. The youngster is still sound asleep, but he or she is told to “go tinkle,” or whatever. After this conditioning has been established, the child who needs to urinate at night dreams of being told to “go.” Particularly when jostled or disturbed at night, the child can believe he or she is being ushered to the bathroom. I would recommend that parents of older bed-wetters stop getting them up at night, even if the behavior continues for a while.

mas. I told him last week that I would spank him if it happened again. Do you think that will help?

Jason Underhill of McAlester, Okla., enters the Quicktrip center carrying a sign and a Revolutionary War flag before the OK For Tea and Tea Party Express rally in Tulsa, Okla., on April 2. As the tea party movement tries to energize conservatives in Oklahoma, many longtime Republican officeholders have found themselves with an unusual problem – eager opponents challenging them from the right.

Political tea brews Conservative activists generate noise, but what impact in November? BY RON FOURNIER ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER

WASHINGTON — The tea party is making a lot of noise, but the angryat-government movement has yet to establish itself as a force that can determine the outcome of November’s congressional elections. The key could be forging alliances with GOP candidates, but tea partiers in nearly every state are

‘That’s the beauty of it. We don’t take any orders from anybody.’ George Burton Minnesota Tea Party organizer leery of that if not downright opposed. “The day there’s an organized tea party in Wisconsin,” says Mark Block, who runs tea party rallies in the state, “is the day the tea party movement dies.” The Associated Press reviewed tea party chapters across the country, interviewing dozens of local organizers as well as Democratic and Republican strategists to produce a portrait of the movement to date — and its prospects for tipping congressional elections this fall. Though it’s far too early for any long-term verdict on the tea party — even defining what short-term success

would be for its members can be a challenge — the AP found that: • The embryonic movement is not as much a force that drives public opinion as a reflection of it. • Local chapters are underfunded, loosely aligned and often at odds with one another. • The lack of a single leader, issue or strategic goal sets them apart from most politically potent movements. America’s tea party is a hodgepodge of barely affiliated groups, a home to the politically homeless, a fast-growing swath of citizens who are frustrated with Washington, their own state capitals and both major political parties. Most describe themselves as conservatives or libertarians. They rarely identify themselves as Democrats. Last year’s rise of the tea party closely tracked polls showing declining faith in government, confidence in the nation’s future and approval of President Barack Obama and Congress. Government bailouts and Obama’s trillion-dollar push to overhaul the U.S. health care system proved too much for people like Ralph Sprovier, a regional coordinator for Illinois Tea. “We’re regular people who are p---ed off at our government — period, end of story,” says Sprovier. “Defend us, don’t spend more than we have, get the budget balanced and listen to what we say.” But listening doesn’t guarantee understanding. Tea party regulars back candidates who support debt reduction. Or free markets. Or states’ rights. Or civil liberties. Or tort reform. Or term limits. Or abolishing federal agencies. They champion some

According to the latest Harris Poll released last week, the Republicans are a long way from convincing the American people that it is time to return the GOP back to power in Washington. The public may have serious doubts and reservations about the Democrats, but the Republicans simply are not seen as the alternative either in terms of the stands the GOP has taken or the leaders who are thought to be dominant in today’s national Republican Party. Adding to the roster of Republican woes is the fact that the memory of President George W. Bush and the state of the economy he left as part of his legacy still sticks in the craw of Americans. When asked whom they most blame for the bad state of the economy, former President Bush tops the list, singled out by 31 percent. Wall Street, a major contributor of funds to the Republican Party, comes in second as most blamed by 25 percent. Then, much further down the blame list, are Democrats in Congress (16 percent) and President Obama (14 percent). Republicans in Congress finish next at 9 percent, with Federal Research Chairman Ben Bernanke finishing last at 4 percent.


Charlie Gruschow, president and founder of the Tea Party group in Des Moines, Iowa, conducts the group’s board meeting in Johnston, Iowa, April 1. Gruschow thinks the group, which is only a year old, will grow as members spread the word about their beliefs and how they contrast with some candidates’ actions. of these issues — but not always all of them — and sometimes many more. Generalizing the movement is a fool’s errand. This we know: Tea parties know how to produce crowds. In the footsteps of the Boston Tea Party more than two centuries ago, organizers use e-mail, social networking and other electronic tools to draw enormous numbers of disaffected Americans together. But rally building is no big trick in the era of Twitter and Facebook, when people with cell phones can summon crowds for events as frivolous as snowball fights and bursts of song. Beyond rallies, the movement thins out. Too broke to buy a copy machine, a tea party group in Alaska plucked a copier from a landfill. A chapter in Kansas lost its only laptop, and with it the group’s membership list. Unversed in media man-

agement, two local leaders suggested in a nationally broadcast interview that they favored abolishing Social Security. Democrats quickly assigned that view to the entire movement. The organization seems strongest in places where lobbyists and GOP party operatives like former House Majority Leader Dick Armey pull levers. The tea party itself is not a political party — and there are no signs it ever will be. “That’s the beauty of it,” says George Burton, a Minnesota electrician and history buff who dressed in period garb for a rally he organized in Brainerd, “We don’t take any orders from anybody.” The tea party has no single issue around which people rally — taxes comes closest — and it has no clear leader who drives the organization’s message, motivates followers and raises money. Indeed,


the hundreds of tea party chapters and tens of thousands of its activists cannot agree on the most basic strategic goal: whether to try to influence the current political system or dismantle it. So what does that mean for November? With no candidates of the tea party’s own, Republican strategists still hope tea party groups will align with the GOP to defeat Democrats. They want the movement to share its e-mail lists, raise money for the party and send its volunteers to the homes of likely Republican voters. That could make a difference in dozens of races. If the tea partiers stay apart? “The American experience is if you don’t go through one of the two major parties or you don’t home in on a single issue as a litmus test, it’s very difficult to be impactful across the country,” says Matt Schlapp, a White House political director.



ASK A.P.: Journalist tackles questions about cereal production. 2F

Christopher Wiley, director of development at the San Francisco Food Bank, holds the last two boxes of donated cereal showing swimmer Michael Phelps. A readersubmitted question about cereal, is being answered as part of an Associated Press Q&A column called “Ask AP.”

Questions concern filibusters, cereal made in America THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

When you’re digging into a bowl of cornflakes, do you ever stop to think about where that box of cereal came from? A woman in Wisconsin is wondering whether any cereal is made in the United States, and her curiosity has inspired one of the questions in this edition of “Ask AP,” a weekly Q&A column where AP journalists respond to readers’ questions about the news. If you have your own news-related question that you’d like to see answered by an AP reporter or editor, send it to, with “Ask AP” in the subject line. And please include your full name and hometown so they can be published with your question. You can also find Ask AP on AP Mobile, a multimedia news service available on Internetenabled cell phones. Go to http://www.apnews. com/ to learn more. Q. A lot of news articles were written about the Republicans’ attempts to block health care reform. One of the tactics mentioned was the filibuster, now that the Democrats have less of a majority. Can you explain, in layman’s terms, how a filibuster works? Paul Lovern Arlington Heights, Ill.

war measures, in 1917 prodded the Senate to approve a rule under which a two-thirds majority could bring about “cloture,” or an end to debate. In 1975 the Senate changed that to a three-fifths majority, or 60 senators voting to close off debate. The longest one-man filibuster came in 1957, when Strom Thurmond spoke on the floor for 24 hours and 18 minutes to delay action on civil rights legislation. But that “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington” image of one senator reciting recipes and reading the telephone book in marathon speeches is largely a thing of the past. What is commonly referred to as a filibuster today occurs when even one senator objects to action on a legislative matter. To overcome that objection, supporters of the legislation, often the majority leader, file cloture. The vote is taken two days after the cloture petition is filed and, if the 60-vote threshold is reached, a period of up to 30 hours of debate begins. This process can occur more than once on a single bill: For example, a cloture vote may be required to bring a bill to the Senate floor and another cloture vote needed to cut off debate and move to a final vote. Jim Abrams Associated Press Writer, Washington

A. The term “filibuster” is thought to derive from the Dutch word vrijbuiter – free booter, or pirate. It began to appear in the 1840s in the Senate, which, unlike the House, had no rules for cutting off debate. President Woodrow Q. I like to support Wilson, stymied by Senate inaction on proposed American workers by

purchasing items made in the USA when I can. I’ve read that Kellogg laid off over 500 workers and moved production outside the U.S. Is there any cereal that is still made in the United States? Most boxes simply state that they distribute the product, but give no information about where it is made. Kenneth Heilman Eau Claire, Wis. A. Actually, the vast majority of cereal sold in the U.S. – including Kellogg’s – is made domestically. Kellogg Co., the largest cereal company and maker of products like Rice Krispies and Frosted Flakes, said more than 90 percent of the cereal it sells in the U.S. is made domestically. General Mills Inc., the second largest cereal producer, with brands like Cheerios and Lucky Charms, said all of its cereal sold in the U.S. is manufactured here. Ralcorp Holdings Inc., which owns the Post brand – maker of Honeycomb and Grape Nuts cereals, among others – said 95 percent of Post cereals sold in the U.S. are made here. And Quaker, a division of PepsiCo Inc., said all of its cereal is made in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, which the company says is the oldest milling and production facility of its kind in the U.S. Regarding the job cuts at Kellogg, the company said it has approximately 31,000 employees worldwide. Last year, the company eliminated about 1,000 positions worldwide, and about 20 percent of those were through attrition. Sarah Skidmore AP Food Industry Writer, Portland, Ore.

FAYETTEVILLE – A virtual reality simulator at Methodist University will soon help authorities learn how to spot a methamphetamine lab. On Tuesday, the university received a $150,000 federal grant to provide training to social workers, teachers, law enforcement and others who could potentially identify a dangerous clandestine

lab. Students who strap on gloves and goggles can take a virtual walk through a house where they have to decide whether a pack of Sudafed, for example, is being used to make drugs or treat a cold based on what they see. The number of clandestine lab cases in North Carolina dropped dramatically in 2006 with a new law that put certain cold medicines behind pharmacy counters, because the ingredients are used to make meth. But author-

ities say the numbers are slowly climbing again. The State Bureau of Investigation worked 195 cases in 2008, followed by 206 cases last year. Sixtytwo labs have been identified this year. Almost two weeks ago, Fayetteville police found a meth lab about three miles from campus, said Methodist’s president, Elton Hendricks. Chemicals used to manufacture meth are prone to explode and create health problems.


RALEIGH – The health care debate, after dominating Washington for the last year, is now shifting to state capitals like Raleigh. Opponents of the health care law recently signed by President Barack Obama are pushing for

North Carolina to join 15 other states in a lawsuit challenging its constitutionality. Republican lawmakers are also preparing to introduce legislation – similar to bills offered in dozens of other states – that would outlaw the provision that everyone be required to buy health insurance. “We believe North Car-

olina should be a leader in protecting the sovereignty and solvency of this state,” said Republican Labor Commissioner Cherie Berry, who argued Tuesday for the state to join the lawsuit. Berry made the case at the Council of State meeting Tuesday. There were 150 protesters at a nearby park, carrying signs such as “Obamacare is Social-

ism” and “Kill the Bill.” As in Washington, the health care fight in Raleigh is being waged along partisan lines. At the 10-member Council of State meeting, it was the two Republicans, Berry and Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler, who urged the council to join the lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the health care law.

Terrence McNally’s plays, marriage take DC stage BY BRETT ZONGKER ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER


ASHINGTON – Terrence McNally was writing about gay divorce long before gay marriage was ever legal. His 1980s play, “The Lisbon Traviata,” takes audiences from the hilarious highs of friends bonded over opera and then plunges them to the agony of a shattered relationship waiting at home. Written at the height of the AIDS crisis, the prospect of being alone during that nightmare was far worse for some than clinging to a bad match and pretending it was good. He wasn’t writing role models, he said recently. He was writing about real people, warts and all. In the city where this play has been revived 25 years later as part of a monthlong festival, McNally is drafting a new part of his own story. On Tuesday, the 71-year-old playwright and his partner, Tom


Playwright Terrence McNally is seen at the Kennedy Center in Washington. The Kennedy Center is staging a festival of McNally’s work. Kirdahy, 46, exchanged vows on the banks of the Potomac River with the new same-sex marriage law in the nation’s capital. Never mind their 25-year age difference, he said. They don’t feel it, except for their tastes in music. During a small ceremony under a tree blooming with white flowers, Kirdahy read from a scene in McNally’s play “Corpus Christi,” in which a gay Christ-like figure named Joshua marries two apostles.

“It is good when two men love as James and Bartholomew do and we recognize their union,” Kirdahy read. “Love each other in sickness and in health.” Kirdahy, a lawyer and Broadway producer, choked up as he recalled seeing the play before meeting McNally. “The first time I saw it, I knew that I could love the writer of those words,” he said. Once they met, McNally said, it was love at first sight.

Mine owner accused of putting safety second BY TIM HUBER AP BUSINESS WRITER


ULIAN, W.Va. – The coal mine rocked by an explosion that killed at least 25 workers in the nation’s deadliest mining disaster since 1984 had been cited for 600 violations in less than a year and a half, some of them for not properly ventilating methane – the highly combustible gas suspected in the blast. The disaster at the Upper Big Branch mine has focused attention on the business and safety practices of the owner, Massey Energy, a powerful and politically connected company in Appalachia known for producing big profits, as well as big piles of safety and environmental violations and big damage awards for grieving widows. “There are mines in this country who have operated safely for 20 years,� said J. Davitt McAteer, head of the federal Mine Safety and Health Administration in the Clinton administration. “There are mines who take precautions ahead of time. There are mines who spend the money and manpower to do it.� He added: “Those mines haven’t been blown up.� Monday’s blast is believed to have been caused by a buildup of methane, a naturally occurring gas that is odorless and colorless. Last year alone, MSHA cited Upper Big Branch for 495 violations and proposed $911,802 in fines. Production more than
