150 new furniture jobs coming to Lexington BY DARRICK IGNASIAK ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

DAVIDSON COUNTY – Lexington Mayor John Walser admitted Friday he was having a difficult time getting the smile off his face as he helped introduce a furniture company that’s pledging to create 150 jobs in the city. Walser was among several city, county and state officials who participated in a press conference announcing United Furniture Industries would be expanding in North Carolina by opening a new facility in Davidson County. In addition to jobs, the company plans to invest more than $3.3 million over the next three years in Lexington. “This is the best thing that’s happened in a long time to us,” Walser said. “I’m so happy to be a part of this occasion. ... This is the first and best news that we’ve had in a long time.” United Furniture Industries, headquartered in

HIGH POINT – Brothers Greg and Jeff Huggins may be running low on sleep and energy by the time the High Point Market officially opens today. Owners of Triad Lighting, their business has been booming since last week – a sure sign that the furniture market is in town, said Greg Huggins. The brothers supply showrooms with “track head” lighting and light bulbs, he said. “I would say we are always about 70 to 80 percent busier this week than usual,” he said. “We probably have slept 16 hours for the last week, but we aren’t complaining one bit.” Traffic moved heavily through the downtown streets Friday along with crowds of marketgoers. The event, which runs through Thursday, has produced some activity at local businesses such as Triad Lighting and left others hoping for a boom as the market gets under way. Alex Hatzudis, owner of Plaza Cafe on S. Main Street, said business from the market had been “fair,” but he hoped for the best in the days to come. “We’ll get more (customers) later,” he said. “You always do better in the beginning (of market).” A rush usually hits the restaurant during breakfast and lunch hours, Hatzudis said. As far as predicting the amount of traffic he might see this spring, he said only time can tell. “I don’t know,” he said. “I just hope it’s going to be busy. The crowds also have already trickled into Sumela Restaurant on N. Main Street, according to owner Mehmet Cakal. “We’ve had good traffic this week,” Cakal said. “Everybody is expecting to see a larger crowd this year, but we haven’t seen any more than the usual crowds so far.

Okolona, Miss., produces living room furniture, including sofas, chairs, recliners, sleepers and other items. The company currently has five locations, including three in Mississippi and two in North Carolina. The facilities in Archdale and High Point, together employ about 400 people. According to the Davidson County Economic Development Commission, United Furniture Industries plans to purchase the vacant Stanley Furniture distribution facility on Hackney Street for a new plant in Lexington. The company will assemble frame materials, foam and upholstered material from outside vendors into finished furniture products. Larry George, president of United Furniture Industries, said his company chose Lexington because of the labor force in the area and the fact that the company’s other facilities would be close. He also said the old Stanley Furniture

George didn’t give a specific time when the company would begin work at the Lexington plant but said he hoped it would be soon. Local officials said the announcement was made possible in part by a $125,000 grant from the One North Carolina Fund, which provides financial assistance, through local governments, to attract business projects that will stimulate economic activity and create new jobs in the state. Companies receive no money up front and must meet job creation and investment performance standards to qualify for grant funds.

The Davidson County Board of Commissioners and Lexington City Council also approved incentive packages to entice United Furniture Industries, which was previously codenamed Project Combined. The new positions will pay an average annual wage of $29,032, not including benefits, which is comparable to the Davidson County average annual wage of $29,640, according to the Davidson County EDC.

GUILFORD COUNTY – School district leaders started poring over Superintendent Mo Green’s 2011 proposed budget Friday after hearing Thursday that county commissioners probably will not increase the county’s $175 million contribution. Green wants an additional $6.4 million for his proposed 2011 school district budget of $651.5 million. But County Manager Brenda Jones-Fox did not recommend an increase Thursday in her proposed 2011 county budget of $568.9 million. Green’s budget includes an additional $3.4 million to cover increased expenses and $7 million for repairs and maintenance, up $3 million. The two boards have battled over the maintenance money for years. The budget also deals with $29 million in anticipated state cuts, and possible furloughs for some employees. “Commissioners will not give us the $6.4 million,” school board member Darlene Garrett said Friday during the budget review session. “We will have to eliminate positions that do not impact the schools.” The district will cut administrative expenses by an additional $6 million. Several department directors detailed their proposed cuts Friday in utilities, contracted services, staff development, travel and supplies. About 26 full-time positions would be eliminated, but most employees would be transferred to vacant jobs. Cuts include the director of employment in the human resources department and two positions in the accountability department, said Gongshu Zhang, chief accountability and research officer. “That makes me nervous,” said school board member Nancy Routh. “We do not know what the state wants us to do in accountability. If you want to measure growth (in academic performance) two times a year, this budget may not cover us.” Green also wants to withhold the remaining 50 percent of funds that go to schools for supplies and professional development. Last year, Green withheld $6 million until the state approved allotments. “We are holding this back,” Green said. “If we can provide it, we will.” By law, the school board must file a district budget with commissioners by May 15. | 888-3626

Guilford officials name Oak Hill principal BY DAVID NIVENS ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT


Gary Eastburn (left) is comforted by his daughter Jana Eastburn as they leave the Fort Bragg courthouse Thursday after a military jury sentenced Master Sgt. Timothy Hennis to die for the murders of a North Carolina mother and her two children in 1985.

Hennis’ death sentence brings back memories for widower MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

SPRING LAKE – Gary Eastburn has questions for Timothy Hennis, the man sentenced to death Thursday at a court-martial for murdering Eastburn’s wife and two of his daughters 25 years ago. “I always wondered: ‘What the hell were you thinking when you did that? What could any of them done to cause that?’ ” Eastburn said. Kathryn Eastburn and children Kara, 5, and Erin, 3, were stabbed to death in their home in the Summerhill neighborhood in Fayetteville in May 1985. A third child, 22-month-old Jana Eastburn, was left alive. Hennis, then a sergeant stationed at Fort Bragg, was convicted in a civilian trial on rape and murder charges in summer 1986. He won a new trial on appeal and was acquitted in April 1989. The Army this year court-martialed him at Fort Bragg for the murders after DNA evidence, previously untested, in 2006 connected him to the killings.

Hennis continues to maintain his innocence. Eastburn, now 61, still has mementos of his lost family – pictures, one of Kathryn’s nightgowns – but he thought he had buried the pain of his wife and daughters’ murders 21 years ago after Hennis was acquitted. It all came back in spring 2006 when Eastburn received a call from investigator Robert Bittle of the Cumberland County District Attorney’s Office with the news of the DNA evidence. “When they called me, it almost knocked the air out of me. It was amazing,” Eastburn said Friday morning in an interview in the lobby of a hotel in Spring Lake. He said he was stunned at the sadness and other emotions that welled up. Eastburn’s eyes shone with tears at the memory. “I thought I had pretty much, kind of put that away and was dealing with everything OK, and it just, like out of nowhere, hit me like a ton of bricks,” he said. Eastburn was glad, too, he said, because there was a third chance

Feds indict former Blackwater president RALEIGH (AP) – The former president of Blackwater Worldwide was charged Friday with using straw purchases to stockpile automatic weapons at the security firm and filing false documents to cover up gifts given to the king of Jordan.

Gary Jackson, 52, who left the company last year in a management shakeup, was charged along with four of his former colleagues, according to the federal indictment. The prosecution opens a new front of the government’s oversight of the sullied security company.

to take Hennis to trial. “It was a glimmer of hope that we could right the wrong,” he said. Hennis was a retired Army master sergeant living in Lakewood, Wash., when the military in September 2006 told him to return to duty at Fort Bragg. The civilian prosecutors were barred by the U.S. Constitution from trying Hennis again for the crimes, so the Army pulled him back into the service to be court-martialed. Eastburn, now a resident of Puyallup, Wash. – about 10 miles from Hennis’ home – has stayed in hotels since the beginning of March to attend the court-martial. The third trial was the most difficult of the three, Eastburn said. His testimony on April 9 about the loss of Kathryn, Kara and Erin left him exhausted for two days. He wept on the stand, and many spectators cried in sympathy. Hennis is appealing the conviction. If the appeal results in a new trial, Eastburn doesn’t think he could go through the ordeal again. “No. Don’t want to,” he said. “It would have to be very compelling. I’m kind of just beat up. “

Flight disruptions in Europe get even worse LONDON – Thick drifts of volcanic ash blanketed parts of rural Iceland on Friday as a vast, invisible plume of grit drifted over Europe, emptying the skies of planes and sending hundreds of thousands in search of hotel rooms, train tickets or rental cars. Polish officials worried that the ash cloud could threaten the arrival of world leaders for Sunday’s state funeral for President Lech Kaczynski and his wife Maria in the southern city of Krakow. So far, President Barack Obama, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and German Chancellor Angela Merkel are among those coming and no one has canceled.

Chile’s Pinera announces $8.43B plan to rebuild SANTIAGO, Chile – President Sebastian Pinera announced his $8.43 billion plan Friday to finance Chile’s reconstruction with tax increases, new government debt and withdrawals from the country’s copper savings. Pinera announced the four-year plan from the docks of the ravaged port of Coronel, which was hit by a tsunami after the Feb. 27 earthquake. The president said one phase of his government’s response was ending, as basic services returned to the affected southern regions and families recovered the remains of the nearly 500 dead.


The volcano in southern Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull glacier sends ash into the air just prior to sunset Friday. Thick drifts of volcanic ash blanketed parts of rural Iceland on Friday.

Volcanic cloud casts pall over world spreads depends entirely on two unpredictable events: Whether the volcano beneath Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull (ay-yah-FYAH’-plah-yerkuh-duhl) glacier keeps pumping tons of dust into the air and what wind patterns do. The invisible cloud could split, reaching down into northern Italy, and perhaps break apart over the Alps. Scientists say the volcano could continue erupting for months, with more chaos ensuing with each big belch of basalt powder and gas. “It’s going to be a mess,� said volcanologist Michael Rampino of New York University. “It’s a men-

PARIS (AP) – A cloud of ash hovered over Europe on Friday, casting a pall over an interwoven world. Made up of microscopic particles as hard as a knife’s blade, the dust cloud coughed up by an Icelandic volcano crept across the industrial powerhouses of Europe, into the steppes of Russia and as far south as Hungary. It left behind stranded travelers, grounded cargo flights, political confusion and even fears the cloud of grit settling on Earth will endanger the lungs of children, asthmatics and others with respiratory ailments.

China earthquake toll rises to 1,144 JIEGU, China (AP) – Tibetan monks prayed Friday over hundreds of bodies at a makeshift morgue next to their monastery after powerful earthquakes destroyed the remote mountain town of Jiegu in western China and left at least 1,144 people dead.

They continued to dig for survivors in the rubble, often by hand. The official toll was likely to climb further. Gerlai Tenzing, a redrobed monk from the Jiegu Monastery, estimated that about 1,000 bodies had been brought to a hillside clearing in the shadow of the monastery. He said a precise count was difficult because bodies continued to trickle in and some had already been taken away by family members.

Thomasville officials paint poor picture of city Regarding the Thomasville controversy over where city employees should live, I believe these two members of City Council have made profound statements: Neal Grimes said, “The main thing we’ve got to do is ensure that we get the best people qualified to do the jobs for our department heads.” David Yemm said, “The type of home that they are going to want to live in, there are not many places in Thomasville that somebody who is making that kind of money is going to look to purchase a home.” I personally would like to have the most qualified people we can get serving on City Council. Unfortunately, the state constitution says a person is disqualified for office if not qualified to vote in an election for that office. Thus, we, the citizens of Thomasville, are stuck with voting for less qualified people because they must live in the city limits to run for City Council. I am sorry we have City Council members who do not think we have people living in Thomasville who are qualified to run the town, and I am sorry Yemm thinks we don’t have housing that would suit the needs of department heads. I have seen quite a few houses in this area that I think would be quite suitable. We have roughly 20 people who are department heads and most have worked for the city more than 10 years with several around

20 years. We have very little turnover, so it should not be a problem. Certainly a requirement could be made to move in after the probationary period. Obviously, the town is close to death, and with the thinking of our current City Council, it should not be long before it will be totally dead. Maybe we should just unincorporate and be part of the county. MARY ELLIOTT Thomasville

World War II vets are getting to see memorial I would like to commend Jeff Sims for his outstanding leadership as flight director of the Triad



Flight of Honor Program. In 2009, this Rotary district service project flew 200 World War II veterans to see their memorial in Washington, D.C. The memorial was opened in 2004, and the veterans who are taking the flights have never had the opportunity to visit it. In 2010, an additional 600 Triad WWII veterans will take the flight to visit the memorial. This program is a major positive for our community, and it unites community organizations and businesses to honor our veterans for their courage, valor and sacrifice to our country. Sims also recently received the West Point Society of the Piedmont’s Leadership Award. GENE PARKER Greensboro

The Gaston Gazette, April 12 As the months clip along, North Carolina moves closer to having a toll road. It’s a development that decades ago many thought we’d never see in the Tarheel State. Economics, rapid population growth and the cost of environmental regulations forced state lawmakers and transportation officials to take a hard look at new ways to come up with the money to build roads. The solution they came up with involves toll roads and bridges. Toll roads have some advantages over other methods of paying for such roads. The major one is that it’s a direct user fee. People using those roads will be footing the bill for grading and asphalt. Another advantage is that most other solutions generally involve increasing old taxes or establishing new ones. That doesn’t mean that our lawmakers in Raleigh won’t find a way to increase those taxes. But they’ll have to come up with a better excuse. Having toll projects also means that the selected highways and bridges will be built a lot sooner than they would have using traditional revenues – up to two to three decades sooner. Most of the projects are quite expensive, some totaling several hundreds of millions of dollars. Building those roads with traditional revenues would have siphoned off funds for other roads also. One more good thing about toll roads: Once the bonds that were used to finance the toll road or bridge are paid off, the tolls will come off. We’re sure that some folks see images of long lines. North Carolina’s toll roads aren’t being designed that way. Modern technology will allow motorists to pay their tolls without having to slow down. The N.C. Turnpike Authority will pay for high-speed cameras to photograph license plates as cars enter a toll road. Owners of the cars will then be sent monthly bills. Motorists who travel toll roads and bridges frequently might decide to purchase a transponder (costing from $9 to $20) to place in their vehicle’s windshield. That will send out a radio signal telling turnpike computers that you’re on a toll road and to charge your account accordingly. By using transponders, motorists will be able to avoid the administrative costs associated with looking up license plate numbers and mailing out bills. ... Toll roads will bring a reality into focus in North Carolina. Major highway projects, like all big government projects, cost a lot of money. With toll roads and bridges, unlike many other government programs, those who use the roads will be paying for them.



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

The word Easter is in the King James Bible one time, Acts 12: 4. This is what the earlier manuscripts say: “... whom also capturing he put (him) to four sets of four soldiers to guard him, intending to bring him up to the people after the Passover.” The scribe who copied this verse for the King James was wrong when he wrote Easter or did this to bring into the church pagan things. Christ became our Passover. Wake up! Just check out the words like the writers of the King James told you to do in the letters in the Old King James. Get a Strongs Concordance. The KJV is best thing the English reader has, but break it back to the old language. TERRY DYER Archdale

ecently, two stories were revealed to the American public. They were mentioned only briefly in the mainstream corporate news. I’m not sure which is the more shocking, the stories themselves or the fact that so few people seem to care about their significance. The first story concerns an official report by NATO that stated a joint US-Afghan unit had been engaged by Taliban insurgents near Gardez, Afghanistan, and that following the attack, the bodies of three women were discovered who had been “tied up, gagged and killed.” NATO reported to the news media that the women were probably victims of an honor killing. NATO lied. On the night of Feb. 12, Special Forces soldiers, working on a tip, surrounded a home near Gardz, and murdered two men, a teenage girl, and two women (one four months, the other five months pregnant), all part of the same family. The official story of insurgents and honor killings concocted by NATO was proven to be a lie by Jerome Starkey, a reporter for The Times of London. Starkey’s reporting forced the military to acknowledge that the nighttime raid was botched. They took responsibility for it. It was also alleged that the soldiers covered up their own actions by using knives to cut the bullets out of the dead immediately after the incident. NATO denies this. According to Starkey, Afghan investigators said, “U.S. special forces soldiers dug bullets out of their victims’ bodies in the bloody aftermath of [the] botched night raid, then washed the wounds with alcohol before lying to their superiors about what happened.” The Times reported that Special Forces officer, Vice Admiral William McRaven, delivered an apology to Haji Sharabuddin, who suffered the loss of the five members of his family, saying, “I am the commander of the men who accidentally killed your loved ones. I came here today to send my condolences to you and to your family and to your friends. I also came today to ask your forgiveness for these terrible tragedies.” Accidentally killed? Then “acciden-


An independent newspaper

tally” covered up? No. It wasn’t an accident. It was murder. That’s why the soldiers, NATO and the U.S. military covered it up – because killing those people, all of whom OPINION were innocent, was a crime. The damage Robert done to America in Healy Afghani eyes is almost ■■■ insurmountable now. NATO gave Mr. Sharabuddin some money as compensation. Starkey later quotes Sharabuddin: “I don’t want money. I want justice,” he said. “All our family, we now don’t care about our lives. We will all do suicide attacks and [the whole province] will support us.” The other story is the video released by Wiki Leaks ( The video depicts an attack from an American helicopter against suspected insurgents on the ground in Iraq on July 12, 2007. There’s some controversy about the edited version of the video being misleading, so watch the longer, unedited version. The appalling discussion between the soldiers demonstrates how desensitized they are and how anxious they are to kill. Though some of the men who were killed were armed, the video shows no aggressive actions were taken against the helicopter crew. There’s nothing misleading about American soldiers killing wounded people and unarmed people who clearly posed no threat. The military issued a press release saying American and Iraqi forces “were conducting a coordinated raid as part of a planned operation when they were attacked by small arms fire and rocket-propelled grenades. Coalition Forces returned fire and called in attack aviation reinforcement. Nine insurgents were killed in the ensuing firefight.” When you watch the video, keep that “ensuing firefight” in mind. The military lied. ROBERT HEALY is a veteran of the U.S. Army and graduate of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. He lives in High Point. E-mail him at

Ecclesiastes 3: 1-2

Do nothing from selfishness or conceit, but in humility count others better than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests but also to the interests of others. R.S.V. Philippians 2:3-4 532582

In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion. Psalms 71:1 (KJV)


To every thing there is a season, and The God of my rock; in him will I trust: a time to every purpose under the he is my shield, and the horn of my salvaheaven: A time to be born, and a time tion, my high tower, and my refuge, my saviour; thou savest me from violence. to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted. 2 Samuel 22:3 KJV

he tenth work of the flesh mentioned by Paul in his epistle to the Galatians is selfishness, a translation of the Greek word “eritheia.” The word “eritheia” refers to a selfcentered attitude, exemplified by someone who seeks political office for personal gain, or who does good works for the purpose of recognition or ambition. This particular vice is contrary to a central theme in the Gospels, namely, Jesus’ warning that “If any man These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow peace. In the world ye shall have me. For whoever would save his life will tribulation: but be of good cheer; lose it, and whoever loses his life for my I have overcome the world. sake will find it.” (Matthew 16:24-25) John 16:33 Who of us can honestly say that we have denied ourselves and are truly willing to lose our lives for someone else? True selflessness is so rare that when we see a genuine case of someone putting other people’s interests ahead of their own, especially when it has significant costs to that individual, we consider it heroic. The question, however, is whether we can truly make these heroic sacrifices in a selfless way, or whether we are doing it with the aim of some otherworldly reward. Many of us make these sacrifices with the secret hope that we will be rewarded in heaven, and this is simply another version of selfishness. Indeed, an emphasis on one’s “personal salvation” is a form of eritheia. We should always consider whether our acts of goodness are done for selfishness or from a more pure motive.

West Virginia feels the pain of mine explosion A

t approximately 3:30 Monday afternoon, April 5, 2010, my cousin, Alex Perry, Larry McKinney and I were engaged in common backyard conversation. We had talked about the crowd of people who came to church on Easter Sunday, the tremendous choir directed by Mandy Bohm and the first-class sermon by Dr. Melissa Pratt on “The Ins and Outs of the Resurrection.� We heard about a small-scale earthquake that shook things around Sutton, West Virginia, a beautiful area 90 miles north and 40 miles south of Jackson’s Mill, the boyhood home of Civil War General, Thomas “Stonewall� Jackson. I have been a guest speaker at this world famous 4-H Camp and convention center numerous times. Little did we know that on this beautiful day in Raleigh County, 60 miles from where we live, tragedy was taking place with all the force and fury of a

devastating explosion. Gov. Joe Manchin told us in one of his many television SHARING appearances that THE SPIRIT the large steel rails Bill had been Ellis twisted by this gigantic power to resemble “twisted pretzels.� Manchin and Don Blankenship, CEO of Massey Coal Co., impressed me with their concern for the bereaved families of the 29 coal miners who were killed, apparently instantly. Rescue and recovery attempts were delayed by poisonous gases. Perry told me that his wife, Montena, had five cousins involved with the Montcoal mine. Three were killed and two survived without injury. Network news departments were on hand with their top crews. Diane

Pope Benedict XVI turns 83, gets a cake VATICAN CITY (AP) – Pope Benedict XVI asked for prayers for the church Friday as he spent his 83rd birthday quietly working, treated to a cake but otherwise keeping to his schedule ahead of a weekend pilgrimage to Malta. The Papal Foundation, an American Catholic fundraising organization for papal charities, presented the pontiff with a large cake during its annual visit to Rome and sang “Happy Birthday� to him in English. In brief remarks thanking the group for its support for missionaries and other charitable works around the world, the pontiff made an indirect reference to the clerical sex abuse crisis buffeting the Catholic church. “In these days, I ask you to pray for the needs of the universal church� so it might receive renewed “holiness, unity and missionary zeal,�

Benedict said. The Vatican doesn’t officially celebrate popes’ birthBenedict days. But on Monday – the fifth anniversary of Benedict’s election as pope – cardinals who live in Rome will offer him a luncheon in an ornate hall of the papal palace. His doctors say the pontiff is in generally good health for his age. But as the clerical sex abuse crisis batters the church, Benedict has been looking pale and gaunt.

Sawyer, ABC-TV evening news anchor, who grew up in another coal-producing state, Kentucky, spoke with knowledge of what it was all about. Both my parent’s families were coal miners. I remember the fear that gripped little boys and girls and other family members when news began to spread through our small community that there had been a mining accident. Fear and anxiety would tear at the heart and mind of all of us. You may recall the terrifying mining accident of Jan. 2, 2006, at the Sago Mine in our state. Hundreds of men and women have been involved in hands-on rescue work and support. Money has been freely given to assist mining families in their recovery and with immediate and long-range expenses.

Communities are pulling together. Part of the coal mining culture has everybody joining in when anything goes wrong. Coal mining is hard, dangerous and always life-threatening. In some mountain areas, that may be the only work available. It pays well and provides a living for the miners and their families. A network news host asked one miner, “Why do you work in the mines?� His answer shocked me wide awake. It echoed the words of my coal-mining Dad, who died at the young age of 58. “I work in the mines so my son will not have to.� I vividly recall hearing my dad say when I was in the fourth grade, “You are not working in the mines. You are going to college. That is the only way you can stay out of the mines.�

All my family were coal miners. One cousin, Oliver “Tody� Hodge, after coming home from military service with the Air Force in France, was killed in a mine accident early one Monday morning. Mining families survive on the faith they have in family, friends and the God whom they love and trust. The words of Psalm 23 and 121, daily offer hope to coal miners and their families. A favor-

Program helps students meet nutritional needs BY PAT KIMBROUGH ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – For many elementary school children in the city, getting off to a good start in the classroom each Monday isn’t difficult because their attention is focused on how much fun they had over the weekend. It’s because they’re hungry. That’s the message from representatives of a new initiative involving Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest North Carolina and the United Way of Greater High Point. The

BackPack program distributes food to children in need each Friday, giving them sustenance they might not otherwise get over the weekend. “There are too many kids in our community who are hungry, particularly on the weekends,” said United Way President Bobby Smith. “We have a lot of our parents who work on weekends, so we have a lot of kids left to scramble for themselves.” The program was established last month through an $18,000 grant from the High Point Community Foundation and serves

Tillman replaced on airport authority

children at three sites in High Point – the Carson Stout Boys & Girls Club, the Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club and Carl Chavis Memorial Branch YMCA – and through Community Outreach of Archdale-Trinity in Archdale. As many as 20 children at each site can be served. So far, an average of 67 packs of food per week have been distributed. The grant is set to end in December 2010, and United Way representatives said other funding sources are being sought to keep the program going after that.

“High Point is a city that takes care of its own, and with that in mind, it is just simply unacceptable for kids to go hungry in this city,” said Paul Lessard, Community Foundation president. “It’s a sin, as far as I’m concerned.” Second Harvest operates the program in several other counties it serves and at Wylie Elementary School in Greensboro. The program emphasizes nutrition; each pack is stocked with cereal, fruit, juice and various carbohydrates, among other items. Second Harvest Ex-

ecutive Director Clyde Fitzgerald said the organization is seeing tremendous need for the program in rural areas it serves as well as cities, largely because of persistently high unemployment rates. “One out of every seven families in this county needs food assistance every week,” he said. “Those who pay the price the most tend to be children. A child not well-nourished tends to be less healthy and can’t take advantage of opportunities in school.” | 888-3531

Spring cleaning


GUILFORD COUNTY – High Point business and civic leader James “Jim” White was appointed by the Guilford County Board of Commissioners to the Piedmont Triad Airport Authority, which ends the nine-year service of retired physician Dr. Otis Tillman. The commissioners chose White for the three-year term on the airport’s governing board by a 9-1 vote Thursday night. White was nominated by Democratic Commissioner Bruce Davis of High Point. White’s term takes effect immediately. Republican Commissioner Steve Arnold was the only commissioner to vote against White. Arnold nominated Don Webb, a local business leader and chairman of the High Point Republican Party. Webb’s nomination was voted down 7-3. Tillman told The High Point Enterprise Wednesday he submitted his name for reappointment, but at the commissioners’ meeting, Tillman wasn’t nominated. Guilford County commissioners appoint three of the seven authority members, with the remainder named by the Forsyth County Board of Commissioners and city councils of High Point, Greensboro and Winston-Salem. White said Friday he wants to serve on the airport authority because of Piedmont Triad International Airport’s importance to the economy and future growth of the region. One challenge that White said he wants to help address is building up passenger service and the number of daily flights at PTIA as it competes with two larger, nearby airports – Charlotte/ Douglas International Airport and Raleigh-Durham International Airport. “That has been a challenge for a very long time. We need to do something, as I see it, that makes Guilford County, Charlotte and Raleigh say, ‘Let’s look at PTI.’ Raise the profile of the airport, and offer the services that will attract Charlotte and Raleigh folks,” White said. | 888-3528 | 888-3626

Salvation Army Family Store undergoes renovations BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – Your next visit to the Salvation Army Family Store may merit a new shopping experience after it underwent recent renovations. A six-week renovation project has been completed at the store, which sells donated items to generate funds for the nonprofit’s programs. In addition to some general painting and cleaning, the store was given a new floor design which allows more space for products, said store manager Ron Rice. More clothing racks also were installed, and vertical space was incorporated with more shelving units. “It simply needed to be done,” Rice said. “The store looked old, and we needed to utilize the space more efficiently.” Parking space lines also were painted in the store’s

parking lot, and its cash register was moved from the front to the back of the store. The store hadn’t been updated since it first moved into the space at 1501 S. Main St. in 1997, according to the organization. It closed for three days before it re-opened to the public last week. The High Point Salvation Army also decided against relocating the store, mostly due to economic conditions, officials said. “We found some good locations (to relocate the store to),” said Anjani Webb, development and marketing coordinator for the organization. “But in order for us to provide the same services with the same quality, we chose to stay in our location. “We wanted to make sure the store was giving back as much (funds) to the organization as possible rather than paying higher rent at a new store.” The new floor plan allows


for more merchandise to be displayed, Rice said. A social group called Triad Mommies contributed to the renovations by designing its new children’s section. “We’ll continue to get donations from our members and promote the children’s section to them,” said Kat Montgomery, a member of Triad Mommies. “There are moms out there who can afford to go to a children’s boutique, and there are moms that can’t. Moms can come here and shop while their child plays in the children’s section.” Rice said the new look may attract new shoppers and give loyal customers a new experience. “The renovations opened up the store and made it brighter,” he said. “We wanted to make everything more accessible to our customers. It’s overdue, but we’re proud of it.” | 888-3617

Glenn student reportedly hangs herself after getting text messages MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

KERNERSVILLE â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A sophomore at Glenn High School committed suicide Wednesday night after receiving harassing text messages from other students, school officials said Friday. Ashley Rogers hanged herself at her home in Kernersville, said Dr. Donald Jason, a Forsyth County medical examiner. She was pronounced dead at 10:55 p.m. at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center. Her mother, Christine Rogers, called administrators at Glenn on Tuesday to tell them that two students had been sending her daughter harassing text messages. After investigating, the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resource officer determined that the students had sent text messages starting at 10:30 p.m. April 8 and continuing until 7:30 a.m. on April 9. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The administrators talked to all the students involved,â&#x20AC;? said Theo Helm, a spokesman for the school system. The students were told that such behavior

NC manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s donated kidney came with cancer RALEIGH (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A North Carolina man got a kidney transplant in hopes of better health, but then had the organ removed after doctors learned it was cancerous. Tests this week found Bob Warzel, 66, of Calabash, has gone a year without developing the lymphoma that the kidney carried when it was transplanted last year at UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill, his wife Patricia Warzel said Friday. He learned from his surgeon two weeks after the transplant that his gift came from a donor who may have never known he had the disease, Patricia Warzel said. Bob Warzelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s transplanted kidney was removed six weeks after the transplant. Since then, Patricia Warzel said, the couple have tried fruitlessly to find out whether proper steps were followed in collecting and testing the diseased kidney. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What we wanted to know was, did everyone do their job correctly?â&#x20AC;? she told The Associated Press. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If everybody did everything correctly, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s understandable and we could live with that.â&#x20AC;? She said they could not get answers from Duke or from Carolina Donor Services, which arranges transplants in 78 North Carolina counties, without going to court. And they were unable to find attorneys to take their case without upfront payments. Officials at Duke and Carolina Donor Services declined to discuss the specifics of the case, citing a federal medical privacy law, according to The News & Observer of Raleigh, which first reported the story Friday. Duke and Carolina Donor Services also declined to discuss the case with The Associated Press.

would not be tolerated. Because the messages were not sent during school hours, no disciplinary action was taken against the students, Helm said. Officials would not say what the messages were about. School officials have been talking to teachers, guidance counselors and others at the school to find out whether there had been other incidents of students harassing Rogers, Helm said. So far, he said, they have not found evidence of other incidents. The Kernersville Police Department is investigating Rogersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; death, Chief Ken Gamble said. Investigators are checking computers and cell phones involved in the case. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The case is more complicated that it appears at first blush,â&#x20AC;? Gamble said. He declined to comment further. Rogersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; death occurred three months after Phoebe Prince, a high-school freshman in Massachusetts, endured months of taunts and threats after she briefly dated a popular boy.

Don’t take health of trees for granted S

ince North Carolina is so heavily forested, most residents take trees for granted as natural-growing, easy-to-grow plants since they are everywhere you look. But if you lived in the Plains of the Midwest, such as Nebraska or Wyoming, trees would have a different value for you. Regardless of where they live, most people agree that trees are valuable, especially around living spaces. Realtors have said that well-maintained ornamental and shade trees can contribute 15 percent or more to property value. This means that proper care of trees is an important investment. Most property owners don’t know how to take care of trees, so they turn to tree-care professionals. Hiring a tree-care specialist does take some thoughtful planning and diligence. A bad choice can be expensive, and the effects on the trees can be long-lasting or expensive. Good hiring choices will prolong the health, beauty, value and life of the trees.

Tree specialists can perform a variety of functions. They can transplant, prune, fertilize, manage pests, diagnose tree diseases, remove trees and grind stumps. When hiring, ECOLOGY look for a combinations of education, Gwyn experience, certificaRiddick tions, licenses and ■■■ references. Education can be shown by ongoing continuing educational professional programs that the specialist may be required to attend by way of their membership in professional organizations. There are two key certifications offered by the International Society of Arboriculture: certified arborist and certified tree worker. The Tree Care Industry Association provides accreditation and certification services. Membership in TCIA consists of commercial tree-care

‘Wicked’ stepsister isn’t really a thief D

ear Abby: My stepsister stole my boyfriend, and I am so mad I am going crazy. She’s very attractive and has no problem finding boyfriends. She did not have to do this. I am sure she did it out of spite. We’re both 16, go to the same school and have several classes together, so I can’t avoid her. We also have to share a room every other weekend when she’s here. I have so much hate and anger toward her now, I don’t know how to deal with it – especially since we have to sleep in the same room. Please give me some advice. – Hates Her in New Mexico Dear Hates Her: I don’t think there is a single woman reading your letter who hasn’t felt the same way you do at one time or another in her life. But please let me share a lesson most of us have learned: Short of slipping a man a knock-out drug, he can’t be “kidnapped.” He is responsible for making his own decisions. Yes, your stepsister might not have discouraged him. She may have even thrown herself at him. But what happened was of his own free will. Dear Abby: I’ve always been big on birthdays. I love the cake, the candles, the singing and a nice dinner. My husband wasn’t a huge fan, but did what he could to please me. Last year, his father

died on my birthday, so naturally, my birthday was the last thing on his mind. ADVICE Now the one-year Dear anniverAbby sary of my ■■■ father-inlaw’s death is coming up, and we will be getting together with the family for a memorial service. I wonder if my birthday will always be clouded by sadness. Is it possible to ever celebrate the day of my birth in a happy manner and without feeling guilty about it? – Birthday- Conflicted in Austin, Texas Dear Conflicted: Yes, but start next year. Or, if you prefer, by agreeing to a weekend getaway on a date other than your birthday this year. Dear Abby: My daughter was married last weekend and received several unmarked gifts. When sending out thank-you notes, how do you know what to say and to whom? There were several guests that would never have come empty-handed, yet there is no way to match the mystery gifts to the right guests. Not sending a thank-you note to someone I’m sure brought a gift seems awkward and embarrassing. – At A Loss in Northern California

Dear At A Loss: For the people whose cards were not included – or were lost – your daughter and/or son-in-law should send generic thank-you letters rather than ones that are specific. They should say something like this: “Dear (––), ’John’ (or ’Carol’) and I want to thank you for sharing our special day with us. Your presence at such a sacred and meaningful time meant more to us than words can convey. Fondly, (––).” Dear Abby: I am about to sell a business my husband and I opened with an initial investment of $25,000. We are selling it for $6 million. Most of my close friends are broke and in the past have “borrowed” money without repaying it. I don’t feel I can tell any of them my good news without them asking for more money. How can I handle this and still keep my friends? – Keeping Mum In Florida

Guilford County Animal Control is reminding residents that leaving pets in parked, locked vehicles in warm weather could be very dangerous for the animal. With the sudden warm snap in the weather, county animal control has already received several calls concerning animals locked in vehicles. According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, it only takes ten minutes on an 85-degree day for the inside of your car to reach 102 degrees, even if the windows have been left open an inch or two. Within 30 minutes, the automobile interior can reach 120 degrees. Even when the

temperature outside is 70 degrees, the inside car temperature may be as much as 20 degrees hotter. Animal control reminds pet owners that leaving the windows cracked or leaving water in the vehicle for the pet to drink is not sufficient to keep the animal safe in the vehicle. Animals do not sweat so their body temperature heats up quickly making them at risk of overheating (hyperthermia), heatstroke and death. County animal control strongly encourages residents to leave their pets at home in warm weather. Leaving an animal in a hot vehicle is not only unfair and unsafe for the animal but may end in damage to the vehicle or

well in advance or by coordinating the job with neighbors that also need an arborist and maybe receive a group discount. • Ask for a contract, and read the document carefully or check with an attorney to be sure everything is included as to the type of work to be performed, clean-up of the property, and be sure to leave no room for confusion over whether the price is per tree or for the whole job. The right choices and some frontend diligence on your part can result in a good job that will provide value, health, beauty and longevity for your trees.

Beware locking pets in hot cars FROM NEWS SERVICE REPORTS

service firms. The organization has developed sets of standards for pruning and other techniques widely used in the industry. According to the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service and the Forest Service, there are five important steps in the hiring process: • Request that a certificate of insurance be sent directly from the insurance agent of the company or tree professional. This will show proof of liability for personal and property damage in case of an accident on your property. Be sure to check that the policy is current with the insurance company. • Ask for references and then verify them. Talk to former customers and find out the reputation of the person you are hiring. • Obtain estimates from more than one arborist or tree specialist. There may be a fee for the estimate. The arborist’s skill may be more important than a low bid. • Keep costs low by scheduling work

animal cruelty citations. Animal control officers will take measures to rescue an animal found in a closed locked vehicle, and will involve law enforcement if necessary for the pet’s well being. Animal control officers will also attempt to educate the owner regarding the dangers of pets in vehicles. Pets need fresh water daily, food and secure shelter and should be protected from heat-related injuries just as people do. Pets should not be left in closed, locked vehicles even for a few minutes. Doing so may result in fatal consequences for your pet. For more information, call Guilford County Animal Control at (336) 6415990.

"They made us feel like we were a part of Greensboro College." - Jeanette W. Information Session Monday, April 19th 2010 at 5:30pm Lobby of the Cowan Building






When I watched today’s deal at the club, South was the dreaded Joe Overberry, who goes all out at every contract. He thinks it’s nobler to go down in pursuit of overtricks than to make his bid. Joe took the king of hearts and drew trumps. He next led the jack of diamonds and overtook it with dummy’s queen when West played low. When East also played low, Joe cackled. Seeing a chance for a prized overtrick, he led a spade to his ten. West took the jack and led another heart, and Joe won and tried a spade to his queen. West produced the king for down one.

AGHAST North was aghast, but Joe was unrepentant. “East would usually have the king or jack of spades, and if he had both, I’d make an OVERTRICK.” It doesn’t bother Joe to chuck 1,370 points trying for 20 extra points. After the queen of diamonds wins, Joe should lead the king and discard the ten of spades. When West wins and leads a heart, Joe wins and discards the queen of spades on the ten of diamonds.

Leg length inequality can bring on joint pain


ear Dr. Donohue: I’ve been jogging with a group of men, all of whom are in their 50s, for a couple of years. This year, my knees have been giving me trouble. In talking with the other joggers, some say it could be that there’s a difference in the length of my legs. Is this for real? How do I get them measured? What do I do if they aren’t the same size? – B.B.


Everyone has legs of slightly different size, just as arms are not the same length. If the difference causes no pain, you can ignore it. However, it can cause problems. It can lead to low back pain, arthritis of the knees and hips, and hip bursitis. The unequal legs cause the generation of great pressure when the feet strike the ground, and the abnormal pressure load exists for both the longer and the shorter leg. The inequality also causes the pelvis to twist and brings on back pain. Furthermore, when standing, unequal legs distort posture, and that can produce back and joint pain. The inequality doesn’t have to be all that great. In a recently published article on knee osteoarthritis, a difference of 1 centimeter (two-fifths of an inch) was linked to knee arthritis. I have to let you know that other authors define significant inequality at half an inch to four-fifths of an inch.















To measure your legs, you need an assistant. Make a mark on the top part HEALTH of both legs in exactly Dr. Paul the same Donohue place. ■■■ Make another mark at the same place on the ankles. Lie down and have your assistant do the measuring with a tape measure. For a really precise measurement, X-rays of the legs provide reliable figures. If there is a difference between your legs, you can even things out with a heel lift, a shoe lift or specially made orthotics. Let’s not go overboard with this. The causes of knee pain are many, and a better approach to your knee pain would be a consultation with your family doctor. Dear Dr. Donohue: Can people with high blood pressure safely lift weights? I have high blood pressure, but it’s controlled with the medicine I take. – L.D. If medicine controls your blood pressure, you can lift weights. When straining to lift, people do get a transient rise in blood pressure, 30 or more points. But the elevation is brief and not a source of concern. I’d like to know more about you to give you the go-ahead. How old are you? When’s the last

time you saw your doctor and had your pressure checked? How’s your heart? If you’ve been seeing a doctor regularly and if you have no heart problems, then it’s OK to lift. Dear Dr. Donohue: I am 43, and my job requires hard physical labor. I lift heavy weights and work almost nonstop from morning to evening, with a half-hour lunch break. I sweat considerably. Is this enough exercise for me? My wife thinks I should be doing more when I get home. I am so tired out I can’t even think of doing exercise. – H.M. It sounds like you’re getting all the exercise you need. Aerobic exercise, the kind that benefits the heart, requires your heart rate to rise to a “training zone” and stay at the level for 10 or more minutes. Subtract your age from 220. Then multiply that number by .65 and by .8. The lower number is the heart rate that provides enough cardiac exercise, and the upper number is the heart rate you don’t want to exceed. If you’re moving around while doing this physical labor, not standing in one place, I’d say you’re getting more than enough exercise. You can assure yourself by taking your pulse and seeing how fast your heart is beating and if you’re in your training zone.

Wake set to spring into action BY GREER SMITH ENTERPRISE SPORTS WRITER

WINSTON-SALEM – Those expecting Wake Forest to end spring practice today with a full-blown intrasquad game will be disappointed. Because of injuries, the Demon Deacons will just go through a lengthy scrimmage at BB&T Field starting shortly after 1 p.m. “With some banged-up guys unable to go, it just makes it impossible to divide us up and play a game,” Demon Deacon coach Jim Grobe said. “We’ll scrimmage and just go until we think we’ve gotten enough work. What our fans will get is a preview of some of the guys who are stepping up.” The biggest questions facing

Grobe this spring involve who will step up to replace Riley Skinner at quarterback and who will fill holes on the offensive line created by the graduation of Grobe starters Chris DeGeare, Jeff Griffin and Joe Birdsong plus reserve Barrett McMillin. Skylar Jones, who was at wide receiver last year, has emerged as the leader in a quarterback race which has been affected by injuries to Ted Stachitas and Brendan Cross. Stachitas, thought possibly to be the best, has missed all spring because of a hamstring injury. Cross missed three practices because of a concussion. Turner Faulk and Patrick Thompson are also vying for

the position. “Sky has had two or three really good practices,” Grobe said. “He’s emerged as the guy right now, but he’s got to get better and prove that he belongs in there when we get back in August.” Part of the quarterback development has been stunted by some of the potential O-line starters being sidelined by injury. Grobe said two players who have impressed so far are returning starter Joe Looney at left guard and Doug Weaver at right tackle. “The rest of the guys have been pretty banged up,” Grobe said. “A couple of guys we are comfortable with, but the rest are a toss-up. We’ve got to find five guys in the offensive line who can give us a chance to win. They may not be the most talented guys. They may

be the toughest guys and that’s what we’ve got to draw a bead on when we get back.” One area that has pleased Grobe is the defensive secondary, which was a weakness for the Deacons for much of last season. “One of the moves we’ve made is shifting Alex Frye to corner from safety,” Grobe said. “He could flip back and play corner, and we’ve done that with Josh Bush. Chyl Quarles has had a pretty good spring at strong safety. John Stamper has stepped up at safety. We went in thin in the secondary, but we’ve got five or six guys that I feel pretty good about. We are most unsettled in the offensive line, and that hasn’t changed.” | 888-3519


Southwest Guilford third baseman Davis Inman dives for the late throw from home as Ragsdale’s Billy Stone slides in safely on Friday night.

Cowboys, Hudgens hang on to early lead BY DANIEL KENNEDY SPECIAL TO THE ENTERPRISE

HIGH POINT – Anything that could go wrong did go wrong defensively for the Ragsdale Tigers in the first inning Friday night at Southwest Guilford. A series of tough bounces and errors saw the opportunistic Cowboys jump to a 6-2 lead. Then the bats came alive for Southwest, which avenged an earlier loss to the Tigers with an 11-7 decision in the rematch. Ragsdale starter Zach Hodges struggled with his control throughout his outing and was unable to throw first-pitch strikes consistently. The Cowboys took

full advantage in the bottom of the first, stringing together three straight singles to load the bases for clean-up hitter Matt Orth, who walked in the first run for Southwest (14-3, 5-3 Piedmont Triad 4A). Two batters later, Elliot Slack lined a base hit to plate Andrew Madden and tie the game at two runs apiece. The Cowboys tacked on four more thanks to a pair of crucial Tiger errors. “A lot of our runs tonight can be attributed to our approach,” Southwest coach Reid Holmes said. “We wanted to be aggressive, but remain disciplined, and I thought we did that tonight. Over-

all, it was a good team win over a well-coached team.” Southwest starter Brock Hudgens dealt with his own struggles on the mound, but managed to maneuver in and out of trouble despite a strong showing from the top of Ragsdale’s order. Walt Sparks got things started for the Tigers with a two-run homer for the first runs of the game. Ben Fultz added a solo shot in the third, which began a threerun rally for Ragsdale to make the score 8-5. In the fourth, the first three Tiger hitters reached and Chris Armwood scored on a wild pitch to make it 9-6. The turning point came on what would have been

Hudgens’ third wild pitch of the inning. Instead, a vital out at the plate came about when DeSean Anderson was tagged out at the plate trying to score on the misfire. Billy Stone struck out three pitches later to end the threat. Hudgens settled down in the fifth to retire the Tigers in order and escaped a bases-loaded jam in the sixth while allowing only one run to preserve the 11-7 lead. He finished it in the seventh, surrendering seven runs on eight hits to go with 13 Ks. “This game is just a testament to (Hudgens’) hard work,” Holmes said. “He continues to get better and better.”




he long and winding road that is the NBA playoffs starts today. If I had my way, the journey would be a little bit shorter. The eight first-round best-of-seven playoff series begin this weekend. Four series start today and the other four tip on Sunday. After that, we have four best-of-seven series in round two, then two more best-ofseven series in the conference finals, followed by a best-of-seven showdown in the NBA Finals. That’s a lot of basketball between now and the middle of June.

I realize television dictates that all four rounds of the playoffs go best-of-seven. But I think the NBA playoffs were better when the first-round series went best-of-five. Only three eighth-seeded teams have upset top seeds since the league expanded to 16 playoff teams. Two of the three shockers came in a bestof-five scenario. Denver stunned Seattle 3-2 in 1994 and the Knicks ousted the Heat 3-2 in 1999. Golden State’s six-game shocker over Dallas in 2007 marks the only time an eight seed defeated a one in the best-of-seven era.

It’s always going to be unlikely for an eighth-seeded team to beat a top seed. But common sense tells you it’s slightly more likely for an underdog to take three of five as opposed to four of seven. The more games you play, the more likely the better team steps up and takes command. I like the idea of the eight seed having a slightly more hopeful road to the upset. But the days of the best-of-five NBA playoff series, like the Lone Ranger, are left for the thrilling days of yesteryear.

BASEBALL HIGH POINT CHRISTIAN 3, KERR-VANCE 0 HIGH POINT â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Andrew Barnett struck out 14 and allowed just three hits as High Point Christian Academy won Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pitcherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s duel with Kerr-Vance Academy. Barnett got all the run support he would need in the first inning, when Jared Gesell singled and trotted home on Logan Gunnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s blast.

Radford rallies past HPU for 9-4 victory SPECIAL TO THE ENTERPRISE

HIGH POINT â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Senior Jamie Serber allowed four runs through 62â &#x201E;3 innings and Nate Roberts hit his 12th home run of the season, but Radford scored five runs on the eighth inning and handed HPU a 9-4 loss Friday at Williard Stadium. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jamie gave us what we needed,â&#x20AC;? said HPU head coach Craig Cozart. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He pitched in to the seventh inning and put us in position to win but we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the confidence at the plate to get things done. Our bullpen didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t execute with two strike counts and Radford beat us, plain and simple.â&#x20AC;? Roberts gave HPU the lead with a three-run homer in the sixth inning. He took the 2-2 pitch from Radford starter Aerik Taylor in to the heckle deck in right center for his 12th home run of the season. Robertsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; home run scored Murray White IV and Pablo Rosario to put HPU ahead 4-3. Serber went 62â &#x201E;3 innings allowing four runs on 10 hits. He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t walk a batter and recorded six strikeouts, one short of his career high of seven strikeouts from his start against Fairleigh Dickinson on Feb. 26. Serber ran in to trouble in the fourth inning, loading the bases with two outs. He got Ty Rivers to swing at strike three to end the inning without a run scoring. In the seventh inning, Serber quickly got the first two outs before Reggie Keen doubled to left center and Corey Swickle replaced Serber on the mound. Serber walked the first batter he faced and Raphael Turner singled to right field to score Keen and tie the game at 4-4. Radford put up a five-run eighth in-

ning off three HPU relievers to win the game. Swickle got hit for two runs and Drew Dades gave up three in his fourth appearance of the year. Swickle was charged with the loss, his first of the year, falling to 4-1 this season. Taylor picked up the win for Radford, improving to 3-1. Senior Matt Gantner picked up an RBI double in the first inning. He and Max Fulginiti are tied with 19 for the season and need three more to set the singleseason doubles record of 21 held by Gerald Culler. HPU (17-19, 4-9 Big South) and Radford (16-16, 5-5 Big South) will play the second game of the weekend series today at 6 p.m.

HPU WOMEN STAND SIXTH CHARLESTON, S.C. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The High Point University womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s track & field team ranks sixth at the Big South Championship, just 5.5 points behind third-place Radford with one day remaining.

Winthrop sits in seventh with 26 points, VMI eighth with eight points and UNC Asheville ninth with five. In the high jump, the top three all cleared 5-5.25. However, winner Kandisa Allicock of Coastal Carolina had fewer misses to win the event. Fenske and

Radfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kaylor Vaughn had an equal number of misses to tie for second, each taking home seven points. In just her second steeplechase ever, Winterink was in contention all the way. Libertyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hailey Neal pulled away for the win in 11:01.57 and Radfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Brittany Christian was runner-up in 11:03.33. Winterink finished in a careerbest 11:16.82.

the Big South Championship in Charleston, S.C. During Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s action, freshman Dakota Peachee took fourth in the steeplechase and senior Josh Morgan qualified for the finals of the 800 and 1,500. Liberty leads with 87 points, Coastal Carolina ranks second with 46.5, VMI is third with 44.5 and High Point University ranks fourth with 41 points. Behind HPU, Radford is fifth (35 points), Charleston Southern sixth (24), Winthrop seventh (15), Gardner-Webb eighth (14) and UNC Asheville ninth (five). In the 3,000-meter steeplechase final, Peachee was in contention for second or third, but could not close the gap on the final lap. It was his debut steeplechase and he finished fourth in 9:25.38. Freshman Jacob Smith placed fifth in 9:34.69, just holding off Libertyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kyle Powers. Morgan, Peachee and junior Jevin Monds qualified for the final of the 1,500.

UNC Wilmington hires Peterson WILMINGTON (AP) – Buzz Peterson is the new basketball coach at UNC Wilmington, ending a second stint at Appalachian State that lasted just one season. Peterson was introduced Friday after-

noon to replace Benny Moss, who was fired in January. Michael Jordan’s college roommate at North Carolina, Peterson left his job as director of player personnel for Jordan’s

Charlotte Bobcats last year to return to Appalachian State. He led the Mountaineers to a 24-13 record, including a loss to Wofford in the Southern Conference title game.

Dolphins deal Ginn Jr. to 49ers

Choi falters; Furyk, Appleby, Owen share early lead

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) – Mike Singletary called Ted Ginn Jr. on Friday to personally welcome him to the San Francisco 49ers. The fastest draft bust in Miami Dolphins’ history is bound for the Bay Area – filling one of the Niners’ biggest offseason needs in the process, and giving Ginn a well-timed fresh start across the country in the NFC West. “We added a talented player that fit a need,” Singletary said. “He’s a bundle of potential and his upside is off the charts. This guy can fly.” Ginn, a receiver and quality return man, was traded to the 49ers on Friday for a fifth-round pick – the 145th overall selection. The Dolphins had him on the block even before they acquired Pro Bowl receiver Brandon Marshall on Wednesday from the Denver Broncos.

Panthers claim Witherspoon off waivers CHARLOTTE (AP) – The Carolina Panthers have claimed kick returner Brian Witherspoon off waivers from Detroit. Friday’s move gives the Panthers another contender for their return job. Witherspoon has averaged 23.6 yards per kickoff return and 10.8 yard per punt return in his two year NFL career. The 5-foot-10, 180pound Witherspoon signed with Jacksonville as an undrafted rookie in 2008. The defensive back was waived by the Jaguars in December and then signed with the Lions, where he played in one game to close last season.

Bobcats face tall task of containing Orlando’s Superman CHARLOTTE (AP) – What Tyson Chandler really loves about the playoffs is that he can zero in one team, pouring over video to learn opposing players’ strengths, weaknesses and tendencies. “You sit there and you study your guy,” the Charlotte center said. “You know that guy almost better than he knows himself.” So how’s that horror DVD starring Dwight Howard of Orlando looking? “It really doesn’t matter how much you watch,” Chandler said, laughing. The player they call Superman is standing in the way of the Charlotte’s hopes for a first-round upset in the franchise’s first playoff appearance. The four-time All-Star is a matchup nightmare for the Bobcats, who have had little success slowing him down since just missing out on drafting him in 2004.

But Peterson began looking for other jobs. He was offered Marshall’s coaching position last week, but couldn’t agree on a contract. Peterson has also coached at Tennessee, Tulsa and Coastal Carolina.



Tony Stewart holds the pole award, a Turnbull Model 1886 Take-Down Rifle, after qualifying for the Samsung Mobile 500 at Texas Motor Speedway on Friday. Stewart earned the top position for Sunday’s race with a speed of 191.327 mph.

Stewart takes Texas pole FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) – Tony Stewart will start his 400th Sprint Cup race from the pole. Stewart won qualifying in NASCAR’s top series for the first time in five years Friday, turning a lap of 191.327 mph at Texas Motor Speedway. It’s been 155 races since Stewart last won the pole, at Martinsville in October 2005. “I’m surprised,” Stewart said. “I’m really not much of a qualifier.” It’s the third time Stewart has won the pole in Texas. He was the top qualifier twice in the IndyCar Series in the 1990s. Former IRL star Sam Hornish Jr., still winless in his third full Sprint Cup season, almost knocked Stewart off the pole. He settled for second with a lap of 191.232. Greg Biffle, who was denied a seventh straight top-10 finish to start the season last week in Phoenix, qualified third for Sunday’s race. Four-time defending Sprint Cup champion and current points leader Jimmie Johnson was fourth.

The pole drought didn’t keep Stewart from winning races. Thirteen of his 37 victories have come since his last pole, the same year he won his second Sprint Cup series championship. Stewart’s strong qualifying run came a week after Ryan Newman won for the first time with Stewart-Haas Racing and ended his 77-race drought. “To get him that first win for the organization this early in the year, that totally made it for the organization,” Stewart said. “There’s an attitude in the shop that hasn’t been there, period.” Hornish won three times at Texas in the IRL but hasn’t been able to translate that success to the Sprint Cup series. He might be turning a corner, though, with a career-best qualifying run for the second week in a row. He started third last week. “I knew it was going to be a good lap, but I didn’t think it was going to be the second-fastest,” Hornish Jr. said. “We did make a pretty good jump from where we were in practice.”

Martin will stay in No. 5 Hendrick car through 2011 FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) – Mark Martin settled into a chair in the garage area at Texas Motor Speedway before practice Friday. No, it wasn’t a rocker. “I’m not going to retire,” the 51-year-old driver said. Martin was speaking publicly for the first time since Hendrick Motorsports this week signed Kasey Kahne as his replacement in the No. 5 Chevrolet after next season. He ended any speculation that he planned to abandon his Hendrick seat early, or quit driving when he does get out of that car at the end of the 2011 season. “I’m racing in 2012,” he said. “There will be an opportunity for me I’m sure that will be exciting and fun.” Where Kahne will race next season is uncertain

because Hendrick has drivers under contract for its NASAR limit of four cars – Martin, four-time defending Sprint Cup champion Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon and Dale Earnhardt Jr. Kahne is in the last year of his contract with Richard Petty Motorsports. Martin actually initiated talks with Kahne late last season about replacing him at Hendrick. “I’m really, really excited. I’m so psyched about it and so relieved that we can go on and work on racing and not worry about Hendrick Motorsports and my team and everything else and what the future is,” Martin said. “We know it’s set. It’s a perfect scenario. Kasey Kahne is a really right fit for this organization.” Kahne said the talks with Martin helped influence his decision and that

he is not too concerned about the 2011 season. His new deal with Hendrick goes through 2014. “I’ll work through it with Mr. Hendrick and figure out exactly what we need to do in ’11 that makes the most sense,” Kahne said. “They made a commitment to me and Rick said he’ll make sure it’s right. I took that as it will be a pretty good opportunity, a pretty good situation I’ll be in next year.” The only thing certain is that Kahne will be with a Chevrolet team, and the most obvious option is Stewart-Haas Racing, which has a Hendrick alliance. Stewart said Friday, though, that nobody has talked to him about that. But Stewart has said he would be interested in a third team “if the right opportunity, right driver and right sponsor came along.”

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. – A grueling Masters finally caught up to K.J. Choi on Friday at the Verizon Heritage, and Jim Furyk, Charles Howell III and Greg Owen took advantage to top the second-round leaderboard. Furyk (68), Howell (67) and Owen (69) were tied at 7-under 135, a stroke ahead of a group that included two-time Verizon champ Boo Weekley and Stuart Appleby. Choi, who played alongside Tiger Woods all four rounds at Augusta National, opened with a 64 on Thursday. However, he couldn’t maintain that pace and fell three shots off the lead after a 74 at Harbour Town Golf Links. Furyk didn’t have Choi’s problem entering Harbour Town. “I didn’t play enough to get tired,” he said about Augusta. The world’s sixthranked player missed the Masters’ cut for just the second time in 14 appearances. Furyk wasn’t happy with the early exit. But instead of dwelling on it, he enjoyed what was left of Masters week. Furyk stuck approach shots within 10 feet on the 13th and 15th holes for birdies. He caught Choi for the lead when he chipped in from just off the green on No. 16. Howell tied Furyk with a birdie on No. 18 where the late afternoon roared through the course’s signature lighthouse hole. He rolled in a 22-footer from off the green. “Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good,” he said. Owen moved to 7 under after putting his approach on the par-5 fifth hole within 2 feet for birdie, then parred out the rest of the way.

O’MEARA LEADS BY ONE LUTZ, Fla. – That putting tip that Mark O’Meara received from Tiger Woods on the 10th green at Augusta National last week sure paid off. O’Meara shot a 6-under 65 on Friday, taking a one-stroke lead over Mike Reid and defending champion Nick Price in the first round of the Outback Steakhouse Pro-Am. Two-time champion Tom Watson followed his memorable weekend at the Masters with a 67, and was among a group of eight players within two shots of the lead. Joining him at 4 under were Tom Pernice Jr., Tommy Armour III, Bernhard Langer, Russ Cochran and Tom Jenkins.

SOUTH KOREA’S KIM PACES CHINA OPEN SUZHOU, China – South Korea’s Kim Dohoon shot a 3-under 69 on Friday to take a onestroke lead after the second round at the China Open. Kim is 11-under-par 133 at the Jinji Lake Golf Club in Suzhou just

outside of Shanghai. Thai veteran Thongchai Jaidee, Y.E. Yang of South Korea and Welshman Jamie Donaldson are in a three-way for second place. Yang shot a 66, while Donaldson carded a 68 on the par-72 course. Pablo Larrazabal of Spain and Finland’s Mikko Ilonen were tied for fifth, a stroke further back, while China’s top player, Liang Wenchong, was in seventh place at 8 under after a 70. U.S. Ryder Cup captain Corey Pavin was tied for eighth at 7 under with South Koreans Kim Daehyun and Noh Seungyul after an up and down round in which he mixed four bogeys with six birdies.

NORDQVIST WINS MOJO 6 MONTEGO BAY, Jamaica – Anna Nordqvist won the inaugural Mojo 6 Jamaica LPGA Invitational on Friday, beating Amanda Blumenherst 1up in the six-hole championship match in the Raceway Golf event. Nordqvist, the Swedish star who won the LPGA Championship and season-ending LPGA Tour Championship last year, earned $350,000 in the unofficial event at Cinnamon Hill. After three rounds of six-hole matches Thursday, the field was cut from 16 to eight for the quarterfinals. Nordqvist opened with a 2-up victory over Christina Kim, and beat Cristie Kerr on the first extra hole in the semifinals. Blumenherst beat Brittany Lang 1-up in the quarterfinals, and topped Na Yeon Choi on the first extra hole in the semifinals. In the third-place match, Kerr beat Choi on the sixth playoff hole.

MICKELSON JOINING TIGER IN CHARLOTTE CHARLOTTE – Phil Mickelson will be right there when Tiger Woods tees it up again. This time, the two will square off at the Quail Hollow Championship. A day after Woods announced that the Charlotte event will be his second tournament since his return from a sex scandal, Masters champion Mickelson committed to play on Friday. The tournament begins April 29 at Quail Hollow Club. Mickelson edged Woods and the rest of the field on Sunday to win his third title at Augusta National. Woods finished tied for fourth at the Masters in his first competition since a shocking infidelity scandal. His first sanctioned PGA Tour event will include not only the world’s two highestranked golfers, but also No. 4 Lee Westwood, No. 6 Jim Furyk and No. 10 Padraig Harrington. Retief Goosen, Hunter Mahan, Kenny Perry and defending champion Sean O’Hair have also committed ahead of the April 23 deadline.

SEC accuses Goldman Sachs of civil fraud WASHINGTON (AP) – The government has accused Goldman Sachs & Co. of defrauding investors by failing to disclose conflicts of interest in mortgage investments it sold as the housing market was collapsing. The Securities and Exchange Commission said in a civil complaint Friday that Goldman failed to disclose that one of its clients helped create – and then bet against – subprime mortgage securities that Goldman sold to other investors. The SEC said the fraud, a blow to the reputation of Wall Street’s most power-



Bair: Regulators kept FDIC from saving WaMu WASHINGTON – Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. chairman Sheila Bair is denying that the FDIC could have done more to prevent the largest bank failure in U.S. history. Bair says the FDIC could not invoke its power as backup regulator of Washington Mutual Inc. because other regulators found the bank to be stable. WaMu’s main regulator refused to downgrade WaMu’s rating in 2008 over the FDIC’s objections.

UK levies fines on tobacco pricing LONDON – A British agency said Friday it has levied fines totaling 225 million pounds ($347 million) against two tobacco manufactures and 10 retailers for unlawful pricing. The Office of Fair Trading said that the two manufactures, Imperial Tobacco and Gallaher, had a series of arrangements with retailers to link tobacco prices to competitors’ brands. The retailers were Asda, the Co-operative Group, First Quench, Morrisons supermarkets, One Stop Stores, Safeway, Sainsbury’s supermarkets, Shell, Somerfield and TM Retail.

SEC knew of Stanford scheme since 1997 WASHINGTON – The Securities and Exchange Commission knew since 1997 that R. Allen Stanford likely was operating a Ponzi scheme and an agency enforcement official who helped quash investigations of his business later represented the billionaire, according to the SEC inspector general. The SEC didn’t bring charges against Stanford, alleging a $7 billion fraud, until February 2009. The SEC inspector general also says “institutional influence” was a factor in the agency’s decisions not to conduct an investigation. ENTERPRISE NEWS SERVICE REPORTS


ful firm, was orchestrated in 2007 by a Goldman vice president then in his late 20’s. The employee, Fabrice Tourre, has since been promoted to executive director of Goldman Sachs International in London. Tourre, the SEC said, boasted to a friend that he was able to put such deals together as the mortgage market was unraveling in early 2007. In an e-mail to the friend, he described himself as “the fabulous Fab standing in the middle of all these complex, highly leveraged, exotic trades

he created without necessarily understanding all of the implications of those monstrosities!!!” A call to a lawyer for Tourre, Pamela Chepiga at Allen & Overy LLP, wasn’t returned. Two European banks that bought the securities lost nearly $1 billion, the SEC said. The agency is seeking to recoup profits reaped on the deal Goldman Sachs denied the allegations. In a statement, it called the SEC’s charges “completely unfounded in law and fact” and said it will contest them.

BofA earns $2.83 billion in first quarter CHARLOTTE (AP) – Bank of America said Friday its first-quarter earnings rose 0.7 percent to $2.83 billion as strong trading revenue helped the bank offset continuing losses on consumer loans. The bank reported a $2.1 billion loss in its home mortgage business, but said its other consumer loan businesses were showing signs of healing. Bank of America’s results after payment of preferred stock dividends are up slightly from $2.81 billion a year ago. They surpassed expectations and provided

further evidence that the banking industry and the economy are recovering. JPMorgan Chase & Co. on Wednesday also reported improvements in its consumer loan business, and said continuing credit losses were offset by income from trading. Bank of America set aside $9.8 billion to covered soured loans during the quarter, down 3 percent from $10.1 billion the previous quarter. A year earlier, it had set aside $13.4 billion. Many analysts predict loan losses should peak some time in the first half of 2010.

NEW YORK (AP) – Oil prices settled near $83 a barrel on Friday after the government accused Goldman Sachs of fraud, earnings from some top companies disappointed investors and data on single-family home construction declined. Benchmark crude for May delivery fell $2.27 to settle at $83.24 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Earlier it dipped as low as $82.52. Crude oil traders often look to stock markets as a barometer of overall investor sentiment. They also consider broader economic conditions in their trades, said PFGBest analyst Phil Flynn, who believes recurring worries about Greece’s debt problems are strengthening the dollar and pushing down crude prices. A stronger dollar makes crude more expen-

sive for investors holding other currencies. “The more you look at the supply-demand part of equation, the more you realize that the price of oil is based on macro-economic issues like currency-exchange rates and interest rates more than how many barrels we have put away,” said PFGBest analyst Phil Flynn. Oil prices have stayed in the mid-$80 range since jumping 25 percent in two months, to above $87 last week. Meanwhile, the national average gasoline pump price edged up less than a penny to $2.862 a gallon, according to AAA, Wright Express and Oil Price Information Service. A gallon of regular unleaded is 7.3 cents more expensive than a month ago and 81 cents higher than a year ago.

NEW YORK (AP) – Financial shares led the stock market sharply lower Friday after federal regulators filed civil fraud charges against Goldman Sachs over its dealings in subprime mortgages. The Dow Jones industrial average lost about 125 points, having been down as much as 170. At times, it fell below 11,000 after closing above that level Monday for the first time in more than a year and a half. Analysts say the market was poised to fall after a steady run of gains the past two months, and the Goldman Sachs news gave investors a reason to sell and take some profits. “Basically it’s sell, and ask questions later,” said Quincy Krosby, market strategist at Prudential Financial. “A market that wants to sell off will find an excuse.” Stocks were already lower before news of the Securities and Exchange Commission’s charges against Goldman Sachs. General Electric Co. and Bank of America Corp. also reported profits that topped forecasts, but their stocks still fell. “It’s all a knee-jerk reaction to Goldman,” said Steven Goldman, chief market strategist at Weeden & Co., referring to the market’s drop. He said the fundamentals of the market, the upbeat economic signs that have powered its rally, have not changed.

Pay czar issues 2010 guidelines WASHINGTON (AP) – The Treasury Department said Friday that five big companies still living on federal bailout money will see cash salaries for some of their top earners limited in 2010 so that only five of those executives in this group will be making cash salaries above $500,000. The Treasury Department said that would be a reduction from 65 officials in this group who sought cash compensation above $500,000 in 2009. The five firms involved are General Motors and its financing arm GMAC, Chrysler and its financing arm Chrysler Financial and insurance giant American International Group. These five companies are the only ones remaining under compensation restrictions supervised by Kenneth Feinberg, the Obama administration’s pay czar. On Friday, Treasury released Feinberg’s rulings for 2010 covering officials at the five companies below the top 25 executives at each firm. Those officials received their compensation rulings from Feinberg last month. Friday’s rulings cover executives from 26 to 100 at each of the companies. Treasury officials said that in this group, Treasury had gotten requests to award cash salaries above $500,000 for only five executives, down from requests received from 65 executives in this group last year. Treasury officials indicated that those five requests had been approved for 2010. In December, Feinberg told reporters that he had allowed about 12 officials in the group of 65 to receive cash compensation above the $500,000 cap.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – Coming off a stellar first quarter, Google Inc. seems to have regained the momentum that it lost shortly after the U.S. recession started in December 2007. But it looks like it’s going to take a lot longer for the Internet search leader’s stock price to rebound to its prerecession levels. The shares fell $29.11, or 4.9 percent, to $566.19 in morning trading Friday, a day after the company released

General Electric Co. on Friday reported a 32 percent drop in its firstquarter earnings, but the industrial and financial bellwether said it saw signs of improvement in its own results and the broader economy. The results from GE, one of the world’s largest companies and an operator in most major segments of

first-quarter results that exceeded analyst expectations. Earnings rose 37 percent and revenue surged 23 percent. The latter figure represented Google’s highest growth rate since the summer of 2008. Google rattled investors, though, by adding nearly 800 workers in the quarter, the most in two years, and vowing to spend heavily to hire even more employees, snap up smaller companies and develop more products.

the economy, signal that some sectors may be recovering from the deep recession. “We saw encouraging economic signs,” said CEO Jeffrey Immelt, pointing to increased airline traffic and freight loads, less bad debt and more local advertising growth. He noted that GE’s backlog of equipment and services held steady from the prior quarter at $174 billion.

GE’s earnings also underscored the major challenges the company faces as it tries to return to profit growth after several punishing quarters. Its GE Capital lending unit posted a profit but losses remained high in areas like commercial real estate. GE’s industrial units, which the company is relying on to lead it out of the recession, also posted lower sales. And while

its earnings beat Wall Street estimates, revenue was lower than analysts expected. Company shares fell 57 cents, or 2.9 percent, to $18.93 in afternoon trading on heavy volume. Eric Boyce, a portfolio manager at Hester Capital Management, said GE’s results suggest that the domestic economy “is out of crisis mode, but that we are in a muddled, protracted recovery.”

WASHINGTON (AP) – Toyota Motor Corp. is recalling 600,000 Sienna minivans sold in the United States, to address potential corrosion in the spare tire carrier cable. Toyota says the recall affects the 1998-2010 model year Siennas that have been operated in cold-climate areas. The automaker says rust from road salt could cause the carrier cable to break.

The spare tire could become separated from the vehicle and cause a road hazard for other vehicles. Toyota says it is working on a fix. In the meantime, customers will get a notice telling them to bring their vehicle to a dealership for an inspection. The government says it has received six complaints involving spare tires falling off Siennas.

FLOOD INSURANCE: Gap in coverage leaves many up the creek. 2D

Managing Editor: Sherrie Dockery (336) 888-3539


Clinton: Words really do matter WASHINGTON (AP) – Former President Bill Clinton warned of a slippery slope from angry anti-government rhetoric to violence like the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, saying “the words we use really do matter.” The two-term Democratic president insisted he wasn’t trying to restrict free speech, but in remarks Friday he said incendiary language can be taken the wrong way by

some Americans. He drew parallels to words demonizing the government before OklaClinton homa City. On April 19, 1995, an anti-government conspiracy led by Army veteran Timothy McVeigh exploded a truck bomb outside the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building, kill-

ing 168 people. “What we learned from Oklahoma City is not that we should gag each other or that we should reduce our passion for the positions we hold – but that the words we use really do matter, because there’s this vast echo chamber, and they go across space and they fall on the serious and the delirious alike. They fall on the connected and the unhinged alike,” he said. “One of the things that

the conservatives have always brought to the table in America is a reminder that no law can replace personal responsibility. And the more power you have and the more influence you have, the more responsibility you have.” Clinton made the remarks at events sponsored by the Center for American Progress Action Fund on the upcoming anniversary of the bombing.

Government report sees increase in campus violence WASHINGTON (AP) – Targeted college campus violence, from serious assaults to the mass shootings at Virginia Tech in 2007, is up sharply over the last two decades. The number of cases rose from 40 during the 1980s to 79 in the 1990s and 83 since 2000, says a study issued Friday by the FBI, Secret Service and Education Department. The cause of the increase is unknown, though the report noted a dramatic rise in college student enrollment in the past 20 years. Violence on or near college campuses is hardly new. The report cited, for example, a murder-

suicide in 1909. In that incident 101 years ago, a man shot and killed a student on her college campus and then killed himself, reportedly after the student rejected his marriage proposals. “For years, colleges and universities have worked to address this challenge – to create safe campuses where academic and personal growth can flourish,” says the study, “Campus Attacks.” “In the wake of the Virginia Tech tragedy, many universities were confronted with the troubling reality that one person can, in a few brief moments, devastate a college community through an act of targeted violence.”



Shootings leave 7 dead, 18 hurt in Chicago CHICAGO – Chicago police are investigating shootings around the city that left seven people dead and 18 more wounded in a matter of hours. Police spokesman Officer Hector Alfaro says the first shooting happened at about 6 p.m. Thursday and that the attacks continued into the early hours Friday in various neighborhoods. Chicago Police Superintendent Jody Weis says most of the seven who died in the shootings had documented gang ties. Nobody was in custody in any of the slayings Friday evening.

Police: NJ man purposely vomited on fans PHILADELPHIA – A New Jersey man was jailed after he intentionally vomited on an offduty police captain and his 11-year-old daughter in the stands during a Phillies game, police said. Matthew Clemmens, 21, of Cherry Hill, N.J., was charged with assault, reckless endangerment, disorderly conduct and related offenses for the incident at Wednesday night’s Phillies-Nationals game. He was being held Friday on $36,000 bail. Clemmens made himself vomit on an off-duty police captain and his daughter after a companion of Clemmens’ was kicked out for unruly behavior, police said.

Gates, LA police chief during ‘92 riots, dies LOS ANGELES – Daryl F. Gates, the blunt former Los Angeles police chief who waged war on violent gangs and skirmished with city leaders until his handling of the Rodney King police beating and ensuing riots forced him to retire, died Friday of cancer. He was 83. Gates died at his Newport Beach home with his family at his side, according to a police statement. His brother said recently that the former chief had bladder cancer that had spread.

Gov. McDonnell observes third anniversary of Virginia Tech slayings RICHMOND, Va. (AP) – Gov. Bob McDonnell on Friday commemorated the third anniversary of the mass slayings at Virginia Tech, calling them a “tragedy of immense magnitude and senselessness” and pledging to recognize the anniversary every year he is in office. During a ceremony at the state Capitol bell tower, McDonnell read a proclamation honoring the 32 people who died and those who were injured in the shootings on April 16, 2007, when a student gunman fatally shot 27 students and five faculty members before killing himself. The governor also recognized the continuing loss felt by the families and friends of those slain and thanked law-enforcement officers who responded to the scene to prevent fur-

He declared that the state would observe Virginia Tech Remembrance Day each April 16 during his term. McDonnell called the event “a somber reminder of how precious life is, and

how we must always be ready to help one another in times of great tragedy and in times of inexplicable horror.” He also noted that the shootings prompted officials to improve college

security practices and the state’s mental health and criminal-justice systems. He praised his predecessor, Gov. Timothy Kaine, for his “steadfast leadership” in the aftermath of the slayings. McDonnell thanked the families of those killed and injured for their efforts to help shape policy changes. In the shootings’ aftermath, Virginia lawmakers passed legislation to tighten criteria for identifying, detaining and ordering treatment for mentally ill people who are a threat to themselves and others. Another measure closed a loophole that allowed gunman Seung-Hui Cho to legally purchase the two handguns he used even though a court had ordered him to get psychiatric treatment.

Serious problems found at Massey mines CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) – Federal inspectors have found more than 60 serious safety violations at Massey Energy operations since the explosion that killed 29 miners, adding to fallout from the disaster that includes a wrongful death lawsuit by one of the men’s widows. Inspectors visited more than 30 underground Massey coal mines in

West Virginia, Kentucky and Virginia after the April 5 blast, according to records from the Mine Safety and Health Administration. The agency has tentatively blamed preventable accumulations of explosive methane gas and coal dust for the worst U.S. coal mining disaster since 1970. The miner’s widow accuses the company of a

history of safety violations that amount to negligence in the first wrongful death lawsuit over the explosion, which she filed Thursday. Investigators were reviewing records from the site of the blast and waiting for dangerous gases to be ventilated before going underground at the Upper Big Branch mine. It will probably be an-

other week until investigators can safely go in, MSHA Administrator Kevin Stricklin said. Stricklin said the MSHA hasn’t been disproportionately targeting Massey since the blast, nor has it increased the pace of inspections. He did say inspectors have responded to hazard complaints at two Massey mines.


Obama asks businesses to get behind climate bill WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; President Barack Obama wants business leaders to push Congress to pass long-stalled climate legislation awaiting action in the Senate. Obama made the plug during a meeting Friday with his Economic Recovery Advisory Board, which includes the heads of General Electric, Caterpillar and Oracle, along with labor leaders and economists.

He told the group the climate bill â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which would cap global warming emissions â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is good for business and that members of Congress need to hear that. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Individual members of Congress may be worried about the implications, at least short term,â&#x20AC;? of voting for the legislation, and hearing from businesses would be reassuring, Obama said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The more business can be

out frontâ&#x20AC;? the better, he said. The House last year narrowly passed controversial legislation creating a system to cap global warming emissions and auction allowances to polluters. The cap-and-trade approach was slammed by Republicans and many business groups as a hidden energy tax and some House Democrats came to regret supporting the bill as it became clear the approach was

production of oil, natural gas and nuclear power. The lawmakers are expected to release the long-delayed climate bill on April 26, four days after Earth Day. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., has said he will then take over leadership of the bill as supporters struggle to find 60 votes needed to pass it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to do everything I can,â&#x20AC;? Reid said this week.

unlikely to pass in the Senate. Instead, a bill sponsored by Sens. John Kerry, D-Mass., Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Joe Lieberman, I-Conn., would apply different carbon controls to different sectors of the economy, without a broad cap-andtrade approach. It aims to cut emissions of pollution-causing greenhouse gases 17 percent below 2005 levels by 2020. It also likely will expand domestic

Frontier truck sales up 71 percent BY ANN M. JOB THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


The Nissan Frontier Crew Cab can make even car lovers appreciate a pickup truck. Not too big and not too small, the mid-size Frontier with four doors and seats for five has good room for passengers in front and back seats. It can carry lots of cargo inside when back seat cushions are pulled up against the interior wall. It also can carry big stuff outside behind the seats, where buyers get a choice of two sizes of pickup bed – and both come from the factory with a protective bed liner already installed. Better yet, the Frontier Crew Cab has the lowest starting retail price of any crew cab truck on the market. The Frontier also is a recommended buy of Consumer Reports and for 2010 finally adds side and curtain air bags as standard equipment on all models. No wonder sales of the Frontier are up 71 percent in the first quarter of 2010 compared with the same period a year ago. In fact, so far this year, the Frontier is outselling all competitors except for the Toyota Tacoma. The 2010 Frontier has a

A King Cab with automatic starts at $19,390 and with four-wheel drive added in starts at $24,990. But the gem of the Fron-

tier line is the Crew Cab, which has four car-like doors and front and back seats and a starting retail price of $23,090 with manual transmission and twowheel drive. With automatic, it starts at $24,140, while the lowest starting retail price for a four-wheel drive Frontier Crew Cab with automatic is $26,840.

All crew cab models come with a 261-horsepower, 4-liter V-6. Competitors include the 2010 Chevrolet Colorado, which has a starting retail price of $24,565 for a twowheel drive crew cab model with 185-horsepower, four-cylinder engine and automatic transmission. The 2010 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab starts at

$24,475 with automatic, 236-horsepower, 4-liter V6 and two-wheel drive. Measuring 18 feet long from bumper to bumper with a 6-foot-long pickup bed and a foot shorter with a 5-foot-long bed, the Frontier Crew Cab has decent handling and can feel nimble at times. But it’s not refined. The ride is somewhat stiff,

Counteroffers are part of the process T

he painful truth: Sellers who do not price their property competitively are the most likely targets of lowball offers. In soft markets, buyers are more prone to make low offers on listings seen to be priced too high. Listings that don’t sell usually require price reductions, which in turn often mean ultimately accepting an offer lower than you could have received by pricing aggressively from Day One. Since selling your home can be such an emotional and subjective experience, it’s easy to understand why you’d be reluctant to counter an offer

below your asking price. But rather than feel insulted, try to see it as the beginning of a dialogue that could ultimately a sale. REAL ESTATE produce If you feel any Ken of the terms or Wall conditions of the ■■■ offer are unacceptable, ask your Realtor to present a counteroffer. Sometimes buyers and sellers don’t really know beforehand what price they’ll accept until they’ve begun the negotiations. For example, a buyer might

agree to a higher price than planned if interest rates suddenly drop.

If you feel any of the terms or conditions of the offer are unacceptable, ask your Realtor to present a counteroffer. If you’ve received a lower than expected offer, but the buyers have proven their

qualifications and commitment by securing loan pre-approval, you have grounds for serious consideration. The process of counter-offering can be swiftly settled or carry on ad nauseam. Be prepared to explore all options and act quickly before letting your negotiations fail. Ken Wall is president of the High Point Regional Association of Realtors, one of more than 1,800 local boards and associations nationwide that comprise the National Association of Realtors (NAR). The Association is an advocate for property rights and the “Voice of Real Estate” in the Triad area of North Carolina.

College grads: Factors to consider before buying a home


he’s a recent college graduate with a love of New York and a steady job. Though only 23, she just pulled off a financial feat: buying an apartment in Manhattan with a monthly mortgage payment just $200 more than the rent she paid for a similar unit on the same street. “Plus she’s looking forward to the tax benefits of homeownership,” says Dale Robyn Siegel, the mortgage broker who helped her line up a mortgage for the deal.

SMART MOVES Ellen Martin ■■■

Despite the current availability of low mortgage rates and moderately priced homes, not all recent college graduates are well-positioned to buy a home, says Siegel, author of “The New Rules for Mortgages.” Many are held back for financial reasons, such as a heavy load of educational loans. Others are

still getting their professional footing. Yet 20-somethings who’ve completed their education and have already landed a secure job could find this an advantageous time to buy, says James Ludwick, a financial adviser affiliated with the Garrett Planning Network ( Ludwick, however, says all purchasers, regardless of their age, should select a property with an eye to its resale potential. If you’re a prospective homeown-

CBTR celebrates 2009 award winners SPECIAL TO THE ENTERPRISE

TRIAD – There was an air of excitement among Coldwell Banker Triad, Realtors Sales Associates, staff, and managers who gathered at High Point Country Club recently for the 13th annual Awards Celebration to honor Sales Associates for their accomplishments of 2009. “I am extremely excited to have Jim Gillespie, President and CEO of Coldwell Banker Real Estate Corporation, with us today as our special guest speaker,” said Beverly H. Godfrey, President and CEO of Coldwell Banker Triad, Realtors, as she introduced the Gillespie. After a rousing “Hello Coldwell Banker Triad”, Gillespie talked about what a super year Coldwell Banker had, naming some of the accomplishments for 2009: Coldwell Banker On Location Channel on youtube. com, the new “Blue Scape”, the interactive billboard in Times Square, a Coldwell Banker app for iPhones, and many other successes. He talked about the current market, citing the great momentum created by the tax credit. Gillespie urged Sales Associates to remind their clients that now is the smartest time ever to buy a home with low interest rates, high inventory, tax incentives and low prices. As leader of the largest and most recognized real estate brand, Gillespie remains posi-

Gillespie presented Coldwell Banker Chairman’s Circle award to Coldwell Banker Triad, Realtors who has earned this award for 13 years in a row and who is 1 of only 46 companies out of 3300 offices worldwide to earn the award for 2009.

er, these pointers could be useful. • Formulate a multiyear plan to see if the time is right to buy. • Get a handle on your credit situation. • Don’t count on your parents’ signatures to gain mortgage approval. • Try to avoid buying a property that needs extensive repairs and upgrades. Like all homebuyers, 20-somethings who wish to play it smart should strive to buy in a neighborhood with excellent resale potential.
