THOMASVILLE – Thomasville residents could have the opportunity to utilize a fixed bus loop service as early as October. Rex Buck, Davidson County’s public works director, said the Davidson County Transportation Department currently is in the planning stages of creating a fixed loop bus service as a pilot project for the Chair City. This week, the Thomasville City Council gave the OK on a resolution in support of the concept. According to the current proposal, an 18-passenger bus will be used from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, with a loop frequency every 30 minutes. Davidson County already has purchased the bus and the bus shelters are on order, Buck said. The High Point Metropolitan Planning Organization is funding the pilot project with $80,000 through stimulus funding, according to Buck. The public works director said the target date for the start of the bus service in Thomasville is Jan. 1, 2011, but the pilot project could be rolled out as early as October. “We have to negotiate easements for the bus shelters, and there is going to be some tweaking

Appliance rebate program lures buyers BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – Terrie Brown of Greensboro had long considered replacing her 20-year-old refrigerator. When the state’s appliance instant rebate program kicked in Thursday, she stopped thinking about it and did it. “It was kind of like, if I don’t jump on an opportunity like this now, it may die soon,” Brown said after she bought an Energy Star qualified refrigerator on Thursday at Sears in Oak Hollow Mall. “I wouldn’t have come out just to buy a refrigerator because of the program, but I know it’s a matter of time before my refrigerator runs out.” The North Carolina Energy Efficient Appliance and Replacement Rebate Program began Thursday, offering instant 15 percent rebates on Energy Star dishwashers, clothes washing machines, refrigerators and freezers at participating retailers. It runs through Sunday or until the $8.8 million in funding for the program runs out,

according to the state energy office. Lowe’s received reports from the state energy office around 5 p.m. Thursday indicating there was

‘I wouldn’t have come out just to buy a refrigerator because of the program, but I know it’s a matter of time before my refrigerator runs out.’ Terrie Brown Oak Hollow Mall shopper $5.5 million left in the program, said Daniel Kennedy, appliance department manager. About 50 people were waiting in line when doors opened at Lowe’s at 6 a.m. Thursday, he said. Sears manager John Capes said

the stream of traffic was “nonstop” on Thursday. “It definitely had the feeling of the day after Thanksgiving when we opened this morning,” Capes said. “We haven’t stopped since.” Aislynn Denny of High Point said she started to consider replacing several appliances when she heard about the program. “I immediately started thinking, ‘I have to replace this, and I have to replace that,’ ” said Denny, who also shopped at Sears on Thursday. “My husband and I just thought this was finally a good time to do it.” She said she probably would have waited until later in the year to buy a new refrigerator, but the program spurred her to shop on Thursday. Denny doesn’t mind taking advantage of a rebate from the federal government, either, she said. “I don’t know if our government can afford this, but I’m glad to take advantage of it,” she said. “People need all of the breaks they can get right now.” | 888-3617

Attorneys for murder defendant seek delay in trial Go figure As you may know, for many years, most newspapers published the volume (year) and number (issue for any given year), usually just under the nameplate at the top of the front page. More often than you would think, those numbers got jumbled. That happened with The High Point Enteprise. Examples: an edition published in 1886 had Vol. 10; an 1897 edition had VOL. XVI (16 years); an 1891 edition had VOL. XV (15 years) and a 1912 edition had Vol. 17. An Enterprise anniversary edition in May will set you straight.


HIGH POINT – It could be another year before an alleged gang leader facing a capital murder charge gets his day in court. Attorneys for Keith Lauchon Jackson Jr. want his trial delayed until they can gather additional information about his case to determine whether to file a motion Jackson under the newly enacted Racial Justice Act.

They argue they will need “a minimum of one year to research and obtain the types of evidence” that could be used when they decide whether to file another motion seeking to prevent the state from seeking the death penalty against Jackson.

Advocates urge budget support for teacher salaries, classrooms BY DAVID NIVENS ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

GUILFORD COUNTY – Teachers, bus drivers and education activists called on school district leaders Thursday to find ways to maintain teacher salaries and support for the classrooms. Superintendent Mo Green’s 2011 proposed $651.5 million budget would cut administrative expenses by an additional $6 million and eliminate 26 full-time positions, most of which would be transferred to vacant positions. Teachers fear that Green may increase class sizes in elementary schools, especially if state cutbacks are more than the $29 million expected, said Tijuana Hayes, president of the Guilford County Association of Educators, told the Board of Education during a budget hearing. “We don’t want furloughs or reductions in pay,” Hayes said. Gov. Beverly Perdue



State: An additional $29 million cut. District Administrative Expenses: Cut $6 million Jobs: 26 full-time positions cut with many of those going to vacant positions. Teachers: No cuts proposed. Furloughs: A possible salary reduction of up to two days for all district employees who make more than $25,000 per year. has proposed restoring a teacher longevity – based salary increase – on average about 1.8 percent. Teachers would get a one-time bonus to make up for a furlough last year that cost them 0.5 percent of their salaries. The school board would have to match salary adjustments for employees paid entirely with local funds. “But we have been left out of the budget again and have had no raise in five years,” said Johnny Cook, speaking for classified employees. Classified employees include bus drivers, custodians and lunchroom workers.



A telephone number printed in Thursday’s Life & Kazoo section for tickets to a concert by The Drifters featuring Charlie Thomas and Gene “Duke of Earl” Chandler was incorrect. The concert is at 8 p.m. Saturday at the High Point Theatre, 220 E. Commerce Ave. Tickets are $30 for seats in the orchestra and $25 for seats in the balcony. They are available by calling 887-3001 or visiting the Web site www.highpointtheatre. com

“We need a raise,” said driver Joe Wilkins. Wilkins and another driver Brenda Bailey urged the board to raise the proposed two-day furlough salary reduction level from $25,000 and above to $37,000. “We need to exempt drivers,” Bailey said. “I have struggled to maintain enough hours and I have worked in the summers.” County Manager Brenda Jones-Fox said has proposed level county funding for the schools at $175 million. Green wants an additional $6.4 million. Green’s budget includes an additional $3.4 million to cover increased expenses and $7 million

for repairs and maintenance, up $3 million. 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. “Consider carefully the impact of these proposed budget cuts,” said Ann Busby of High Point, chairwoman of the Guilford County Education Alliance. “You should eliminate cuts that have a negative impact on students.” Cutting education can damage the future for young people, said Joe Oots of High Point, an Alliance board member. “If we fail to fund education, we will fail to fund productivity and we will have problems in the future,” he said. By law, the school board must file a district budget with the Board of Commissioners by May 15.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT US The High Point Enterprise

County commissioner from Thomasville who represents the county on the Piedmont Authority for Regional Transportation board, hopes the county eventually can connect the pilot project with PART’s park-andride location in Thomasville. “I know we can’t cut the tax rate all the time,” said Truell, who hopes the fare for the bus will be $1 to $2. “We’ve got the tax rate as low as we can, so this is one way we can give a service to all these unemployed, where they can make their little checks stretch a little bit.” Residents currently can utilize the services of the Davidson County Transportation Department by calling the department and setting up an appointment. Buck said the county is planning on operating the pilot project in Thomasville for six months and then reevaluate the service to see if it’s something that can be continued permanently.

Released prisoner faces new charges MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

GREENSBORO – A man who was once mere hours away from execution for his role in a drug-related killing was re-arrested earlier this month after police said he tried to kill the ex-girlfriend who testified against him 15 years ago. Charles “Supreme” Walker, 45, who was previously convicted of first-degree murder in the 1992 slaying of 20-year-old Elmon Tito Davidson Jr., was arrested after police said he shot at Pamela Haizlip, his former girlfriend, on April 8. Walker, who police said ran a Greensboro drug ring in the early 1990s, and Haizlip were both charged in Davidson’s death. Davidson was bound, gagged and tortured. His throat was slit and then he was shot to death in a south Greensboro apartment in August 1992 when Walker accused him of attempting to rob Haizlip to steal drug money, according to court records. Witnesses said Davidson’s body was placed in a Dumpster. His remains have never been recovered and are believed to be buried in Greensboro’s White Street landfill.

Haizlip took a deal with prosecutors, pleading guilty to conspiracy to commit murder in exchange for her testimony against Walker at his 1995 trial. She served two years in jail; Walker was convicted of first-degree murder and given the death penalty. Walker was 15 hours away from death in 2004 but was granted a stay of execution by the N.C. Supreme Court after the fairness of his trial was called into dispute. That dispute arose when Walker’s lawyers argued they were never made privy to certain police files during the trial. His attorneys say that information could have discredited some of the state’s witnesses. Walker was granted a new trial in 2007, but before it began, he pleaded guilty to accessory-after-the-fact of first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder. He was sentenced to 30 years in prison, 15 years of which was credited for time already served. Walker got out of prison in April 2009 after his sentence was reduced through good conduct credits -- allowed under old state sentencing guidelines in place for crimes that happened before October 1994.

Since then, the city has removed several thousand tons of material from the storm-damaged areas. Contractors performing tree/stump removal or clearing are responsible for removing and disposing of that material. Yard

waste may be disposed of at the Ingleside Compost Facility. Commercial trucks/trailers will be charged regardless of where the material was generated. City residents may dispose of yard waste for free at Ingleside as long as it is from their personal residences (not a rental property) and is delivered to Ingleside in

their personal vehicles. Piles of debris/yard waste that remain after today will be tagged as a violation. After several tagged warnings, the city will remove the debris and charge the property owner $150 per load or the actual cost of removal and disposal, whichever is greater, according to the city.

Obamacare may have woes like Massachusetts plan Americans who are so excited and can’t wait for Obamacare to start should take note of what is happening with the Massachusetts health care and be very concerned. During the push for passage of Obamacare, the president and Democrats used that state’s health care plan as the successful model to look at. The Massachusetts health care plan was worked out and passed with a Republican governor and Democrat cooperation. At the present time, Massachusetts health care is a disaster and Gov. Patrick recently froze health care premiums at last year’s rates. He has also asked the federal government for a $450 million dollar bailout. The not-forprofit health insurance companies have stopped writing new policies saying they will loose $100 million this year. This action was later overturned by a judge. Massachusetts currently has the highest health care costs of any state, which is reported to be about $13,000 per resident per year. The Massachusetts health care plan has completely failed to control costs, and premiums have gone up every year. For the past two years, emergency room visits have gone up 17 percent, which was not supposed to happen. Some residents are gaming the system by only purchasing health insurance when they need it, and as soon as they recover the insurance is canceled. This results in much higher premiums for the honest state residents. Americans can expect to see many of the failures that Massachusetts health care has experienced when Obamacare is implemented. The New York Times recently reported that many Democrats in Congress are baffled by what is actually in this Obama health care law. Maybe they should have read a few of the 2,700 pages in the health care bill before they voted for it. REGIS KLINE Trinity



Gerald Hege thought he was above the law I am writing to remind everyone to get out and vote on Tuesday, May 4. Voting is our most precious, and most important freedom. Never take your vote for granted. Please think about whom you are voting for. We have several good men running for the office of sheriff in Davidson County ... and one bad one. I felt so strong about this that I changed my affiliation to uncommitted so that I could vote on the Republican ticket. So I am asking all Republicans and unaffiliated voters, to seriously think about who they vote for as sheriff. If you do not know about who I am talking about, then shame on you. It’s Gerald Hege. This man who was elected twice as sheriff thought he was above the law and could do as he pleased. Every Sheriff takes a sworn oath to serve and protect the citizens of their county. This means “all,” regardless of race, creed, national origin or political affiliation. Hege violated the oath, he violated his promise to the people,



State funding is important to market


ov. Beverly Perdue brought good news earlier this week when she visited the spring High Point Market activities. Perdue told market and city leaders that she recommends no cuts in the $2 million in funding the state provides annually to help sponsor market. On Tuesday, Perdue released her $19.1 billion proposed budget, which will undergo scrutiny in the General Assembly. Despite Perdue’s understanding of the importance of state support for market, area officials and legislators must be on guard for foolish attempts to cut market funding from Perdue’s proposal. The state allocation pays a major share of costs for the market’s transportation system, which plays a significant role in making market a positive experience for tens of thousands of buyers and sellers who visit. The transportation system has played a key role in the High Point Market’s efforts to ward off competition for industry dominance, so the $2 million is an important investment for the state. Additionally, some state funding is used for worldwide marketing efforts. Unfortunately, Guilford County officials don’t share Perdue’s understanding of market’s importance to an area wider than just High Point. For years, county officials have been asked to step up Guilford’s financial support of market. This year, the county proposes cutting the previous $75,000 allocation to just $50,000. Again, we ask county commissioners to grasp the wide, economic impact of market and to please financially support it accordingly.

Interest in quarterly veterans luncheon continues to grow


hanks to all the veterans who attended the quarterly luncheon for veterans on April 10. We appreciate your taking the time to join us, and maybe together we can help each other solve some of the issues that come up when you are a veteran. We hope everyone will encourage other veteran friends to join us at the next luncheon, which will be July 10. We appreciate Chapter No. 20 Disabled American Veterans service officers who usually are there as well to help veterans solve issues. We were very glad to have a Department of Veterans Affairs military service coordinator from Winston-Salem there to help as well. At this month’s luncheon, we had nine World War II veterans and five Korean War veterans. As a matter of fact, we had a total of 42 veterans and their guests attend the luncheon. The gatherings are held 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. the second Saturday of each January, April, July and October at Highland United Methodist Church, 1015 Mill Ave., just off W. Green Drive between Ward Street and Market Center Drive. We have mentioned in previous articles about the possibilities of opening a Disabled American Veterans office here in High Point. I am very happy to report that we have found a place, although it will be several more weeks before we can get this finalized. I will keep you up to date on this news. The DAV has one goal, and that is to provide all disabled veterans and their dependents the best service and most professional claims representation available from any source. The DAV provides free transportation to and from the VA clinics in the area. The beginnings of the DAV originated in the wake of World War II when thousands of American veterans returned home to an American that was not prepared to care for the carnage of war.

More than 4.7 million Americans served, and 53,500 were lost in combat. Accidents and illnesses from the deadly Spanish flu pandemic took the lives of 63,000. More than 200,000 were wounded during the war. VETERAN’S I think these are shocking statistics, I had no idea the VIEWS numbers were this great. A Cincinnati-born wounded Stan veteran, Capt. Robert S. Spangle Sr. Marx, became a champion of ■■■ the disabled veterans causes. This is proof that one person can bring great changes to seemingly impossible situations. It is often said that “what is past, is prologue.” For the Disabled American Veterans, the outstanding achievement of its 85 years, is a remarkable testimonial for the future of the DAV. I have been a member of the DAV for a number of years now. I was what I refer to as a non-active member. I needed help getting the benefits that I earned, and DAV helped me. I am very glad that I became an active member in the DAV. The commander of Chapter No. 20 is Wanda Autrey, U.S. Navy (Ret.). She is very knowledgeable about veterans benefits, and she has a volunteer staff that goes out of their way to help veterans. Thanks to Greensboro College for inviting area veterans to their production of “South Pacific.” This was a delightful evening and so generous of the students and staff to remember the veterans in this special way. May God bless America, and all the other nations. Semper Fi. STAN SPANGLE SR. is a 21-year veteran of the Marine Corps, serving in Korea and Vietnam. He’s a member of numerous veterans organizations.

Navy SEAL cleared in Iraq abuse case BAGHDAD – U.S. Navy SEAL Julio Huertas was cleared Thursday of charges he covered up the alleged beating of an Iraqi prisoner suspected of masterminding the grisly 2004 killings of four American security contractors. The Blackwater guards’ burned bodies were dragged through the streets, and two were hanged from a bridge over the Euphrates river in the former insurgent hotbed of Fallujah.

The Air Force sent two F-15 fighters on test flights Wednesday and another eight on Thursday, but said not enough data has been gathered to resume normal operations, despite the lifting of the civilian flight ban and the return to the skies of commercial airliners.

He was not immediately charged with any crime and Customs and Border Protection issued a statement identifying him only as “potential person of interest,” who was removed from the flight for questioning. Agency officials declined to provide further details.

TEHRAN, Iran – Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guard held war games Thursday in the strategic Persian Gulf oil route, the Hormuz Strait, a show of its military strength at a time when the country’s leaders are depicting President Barack Obama’s new nuclear policy as a threat. Ahead of the military maneuvers, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei accused Washington of trying to dominate the world through its nuclear arsenal.

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) – U.S. federal agents detained a passenger on a New Yorkbound jet from West Africa, telling passengers the man was on a ’nofly’ list and ineligible for international travel for undisclosed security reasons.

Nearly 4M people could pay without health coverage

The penalties will average a little more than $1,000 apiece in 2016. haul law kicks in, according to congressional estimates released Thursday. The penalties will average a little more than $1,000 apiece in 2016, the Congressional Budget Office said in a report.

Most of the people paying the fine will be middle class as Obama’s comprehensive law is phased in over the next few years. In his 2008 campaign for the White House, Obama pledged not to raise taxes on individuals making less than $200,000 a year and couples making less than $250,000. Republicans have criticized the requirement that Americans get coverage, even though the idea was originally proposed by the GOP in the 1990s and is part of the Massachusetts health care plan signed into law in 2006 by then Gov. Mitt Romney, a Republican. Attorneys general in more than a dozen states are working to challenge it in federal court as unconstitutional.



Ohio police: Missing mom is in Florida XENIA, Ohio – Authorities say a 31-year-old Ohio woman whose disappearance triggered days of searches and national TV appeals by her family is in Florida. Police in Xenia (ZEEN’-yuh) in southwest Ohio say Tiffany Tehan (TEE’-han) and Tre (tray) Hutcherson are in the Miami Beach area. The two were seen together on store surveillance videos. Police said Thursday that Tehan is safe, has been in contact with her family and is no longer considered a possibly endangered missing person.

Jury acquits man in ’75 reservation slaying RAPID CITY, S.D. – A federal jury Thursday found a man not guilty of murder in a killing on South Dakota’s Pine Ridge Indian Reservation 34 years ago, during the height of the militant American Indian Movement.

Jurors deliberated for less than two hours Thursday before reaching the verdict on the seventh day of the trial. Marshall hugged his attorney when the verdict was read, and cheering erupted in the courtroom.

This photo shows oil in the Gulf of Mexico, more than 50 miles southeast of Venice on Louisiana’s tip, as the Deepwater Horizon oil rig burns. The deepwater oil platform burned for more than a day after a massive explosion sank into the Gulf of Mexico on Thursday, turning what is likely a deadly blast into an environmental emergency with the potential for more than 300,000 gallons of crude to foul the waters every day.

Oil rig sinks, sets up big spill water every day. The environmental hazards would be greatest if the spill were to reach the Louisiana coast, some 50 miles away. Crews searched by air and water for the missing workers, hoping they had managed to reach a lifeboat, but one relative said family members have been told it’s unlikely any of the missing survived Tuesday night’s blast. More than 100 workers escaped the explosion and fire; four were critically injured.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) – A deepwater oil platform that burned for more than a day after a massive explosion sank into the Gulf of Mexico on Thursday, creating the potential for a major spill as it underscored the slim chances that the 11 workers still missing survived. The sinking of the Deepwater Horizon, which burned violently until the gulf itself extinguished the fire, could unleash more than 300,000 of gallons of crude into the

Government won’t exempt airlines on tarmac time WASHINGTON (AP) – Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said Thursday he has turned down requests from five airlines for temporary exemptions to a rule against keeping passengers waiting longer than three hours on airport tarmacs. The new rule goes into effect April 29. The department has said airlines may be fined up to $27,500 per passenger. “Passengers on flights delayed on the tarmac have a right to know they will not be held aboard a plane indefinitely,� LaHood said in a statement. “This is an important con-

sumer protection, and we believe it should take effect as planned.� The provision was part of a new airline passenger protection rule announced by LaHood in December. It prohibits U.S. airlines operating domestic flights from permitting a plane to remain on the tarmac at large and medium hub airports for more than three hours without letting passengers get off the plane. Exceptions are allowed only for safety or security reasons or if air traffic control advises the flight’s captain that returning to the terminal would disrupt airport operations.

Carolyn Kemp of Monterey, La., said her grandson, Roy Wyatt Kemp, 27, was among the missing. She said he would have been on the drilling platform when it exploded. “They’re assuming all those men who were on the platform are dead,� Kemp said. “That’s the last we’ve heard.� A fleet of supply vessels had shot water into the rig to try to control the fire enough to keep it afloat and keep oil out of the water.

Health care resolution



Officials say Cornerstone will renew contract with UHC


HIGH POINT – After rounds of negotiations, Cornerstone Health Care will renew its contract with United Health Care before it expires in May, officials said Thursday. The contract will be renewed May 1, about a month before it originally was set to expire on May 29. Cornerstone notified 3,200 UHC patients in February that it would not renew its contract

with the insurance provider unless critical issues were resolved. Both parties say a new agreement has been reached, and the contract will be renewed Saturday. Details of the new contract are not available to the public, said Bonnie Lovell, director of managed care at Cornerstone, but the conflict, some of which centered around insurance reimbursement rates, has been resolved, she said. “From our perspective, I am pleased we are able to come to

a mutual agreement on so many issues,” Lovell told the High Point Enterprise. Post cards were sent to patients notifying them of the resolution earlier this month, Lovell said. From a patient’s perspective, there is nothing to worry about, said Roger Rollman, local spokesman for UHC. “There are no changes that our members will have to accommodate as a result of the new contract,” Rollman said. “They have the same access

they’ve been accustomed to. “There will be no interruption in service,” Lovell added. A similar situation occurred between Cornerstone and Blue Cross Blue Shield in 2000. The health care system sent out letters to its customers notifying them that the contract with BCBS might not be renewed, but a mutual agreement was reached after 11 rounds of negotiations. BCBS covered about 5,000 Cornerstone patients at that time.

THOMASVILLE – Vandals are to blame for a wastewater spill of 11,700 gallons that occurred Tuesday, according to a city of Thomasville press release. Thomasville officials reported Thursday a wastewater spill of an estimated volume of 11,700 gallons from two manholes by the bridge on Mason Way. The cause of the spill was vandalism,

The city of Thomasville alleges metal fence posts and rip-rap stone placed into a manhole blocked the flow of wastewater. city officials said. The city alleges that an individual or individuals had placed metal fence posts and rip-rap stone into a manhole and blocked the flow of the wastewater. The spill was called in at 7:15 a.m. Tuesday morning, located at 7:28 a.m. and stopped by 8:27 a.m., the city reported. Crews worked until noon to remove the debris that had been placed in the manhole. About 11,200 gallons of the wastewater entered North Hamby Creek in the Yadkin/Pee Dee River Basin. House Bill 1160, which the General Assembly enacted July 1999, requires that municipalities, animal operations, industries, and others who operate waste handling systems issue news releases when a waste spill of 1,000 gallons or more reaches surface waters. The Department of Emergency Management was notified of the event on Tuesday and is reviewing the matter. For more information, contact the city of Thomasville at 475-4220.

THOMASVILLE – The Thomasville Board of Education on Thursday gave the go ahead on maintenance projects for two of its schools during a special called meeting. Keith Tobin, superintendent for Thomasville City Schools, said the special meeting was needed to consider a contract to install an air conditioning system in the media

center at Liberty Drive Elementary School so it could be ready for exams next month. The school board unanimously awarded a contract to Rural Hall-based Professional Air Systems for $45,750 to install the air condition system. “Professional Air has done a lot of work for us,” Tobin said. “They have actually done most of the work that we have lately as far as the middle school, high school and primary

school. They are quality folks and do a good job.” In addition to the project at Liberty Drive Elementary School, the school board also awarded a contract to Charlotte-based MBAJ Architecture for the design of windows that will be installed in the career technical education building at Thomasville High School. The school board awarded MBAJ Architecture a contract for $7,500. “If you look at those win-


dows, it’s really outdated big time,” Tobin said. “We are losing a tremendous amount of air out of that area. The heating and air is just tough to do in there, so that’s what we are trying to get done with this money.” Tobin said the money to fund the projects comes from the Quality School Construction Bond, which is stimulus money that will have to be repaid. | 888-3657

Coble faces eclectic collection of opponents


U.S. Rep. Howard Coble, R-N.C., tries out a recliner on a stop recently in Denton. Coble is the longest-serving GOP House member in North Carolina history. His refusal to take a congressional pension earned him the stripes of a fiscal hawk.


ear Abby: I have been overly neat since I was in middle school. I am now in college and feel I have reached the breaking point because I’m such a neat freak. I love having everything neat and tidy, but I now spend less time being a 22-year-old and more time cleaning, scrubbing and organizing. I can’t sleep if I know there is clutter somewhere in the apartment. I have passed up going out with friends if my apartment isn’t perfect. Everything has a place and a label. It’s getting tiring because I realize I haven’t had any good wholesome fun in a long time. I wish I could relax and be OK with clutter like everyone else, instead of wasting my life cleaning. Any advice? – Overly Organized in Texas Dear Overly Organized: Yes, I do. March yourself to the student health center and discuss this with a counselor there. When the compulsion to have your apartment “perfect” trumps your ability to enjoy your life, it’s time to accept that you have gone from neat to obsessive. There is treatment for the problem, and once it begins you will be able to relax and let go of your anxiety. So please don’t wait to get the help you need. Dear Abby: I’m a 20year-old female who has been dating my boyfriend, “Will,” for three

years. Our long-distance relationship was going along just fine until the topic ADVICE of his 21st birthday Dear came up reAbby cently. Will ■■■ mentioned in passing that he’s planning on going to a strip club with friends to celebrate this momentous birthday. Will says he just likes to look at women, that all men do and it’s completely fine. He didn’t seem to care how I felt about it. His mind was already made up. He wants me to be more accepting of who he is, but it turns my stomach to think of him hanging out at a strip club. Abby, is a young man in a committed relationship going to a strip club to drink and view naked women “normal”? Should I not take this so personally? Or am I right to see this as a lack of commitment to me? – Offended in Fort Collins, Colo. Dear Offended: If your boyfriend had attempted to hide his plans from you, or if he was planning on frequenting strip clubs alone and often, I’d say you should feel threatened. But he was open about going out to celebrate his “momentous” birthday with his friends – and plenty of women have been known to visit clubs with male

dancers. So calm down. This has nothing to do with his “commitment” to you. Dear Abby: I am 42 years old and being married for the first time in October. My parents divorced more than 20 years ago and both remarried. My father will walk me down the aisle. Dad lost my stepmother two years ago, and is still having a hard time with it emotionally. Because of my age, I don’t expect anything from my parents except their emotional support. If it’s all right with my parents, do you think it would be appropriate to put on the invitations, “In lieu of gifts, please make a donation to the American Cancer Society in memory of (my stepmother’s name)”? – Loving Daughter in Arlington, Texas Dear Loving Daughter: You are a sweetheart to think of it, but doing so would be a huge breach of etiquette. In fact, any mention of gifts on a wedding invitation is a no-no. The way to handle it is, when asked where you are registered for gifts, to verbally inform the questioner what your wishes are. DEAR ABBY is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

US Senate race in NC focuses on regulator bonuses RALEIGH (AP) – U.S. Senate Democratic hopeful Cal Cunningham again defended himself Thursday about a debate by the North Carolina Banking Commission about bonuses for its employees when rival Ken Lewis questioned his opposition to them. Lewis argued Thursday that a May 2009 transcript shows Cunningham declined at a commission meeting to oppose $200,000 in bonuses for 74 commission workers when given a chance. Cunningham, who left the board this spring, said last week he was off a commission conference call when “the meeting went on and business was brought up” that included a vote on a budget proposal that included the bonuses.

cial bailout, the stimulus package and health care overhaul. What’s more, they argue, Republicans like Coble failed to exert fiscal discipline when they controlled Congress during the years of President George W. Bush. “He’s not talking about the key issues that America is waking up to,” said Coble challenger James Taylor of Pinehurst, who owns three medical practices in south central North Carolina. Another candidate, High Point furniture showroom owner Cathy Hinson contends members of Congress were literally bribed to pass the health care bill and should be thrown out of office. Though Coble voted against the bill, she said voters need more than his “quiet voice in Congress” to stand up to that kind of activity.

who has gained support from the tea party movement. “He’s been a great congressman and he has served the 6th District well. What I’m saying is in the last three years he has not been as vocal, he has not been as active as the folks would like to see him be.” After an overnight hospital stay in February for bumping his head while fainting, Coble is attempting to reassure the public of his fitness to serve a 14th term by keeping to his normal hectic schedule in the district, which covers the central Piedmont. But it has been strange for Coble or others to fret about a political strategy for the May 4 primary, rather than the fall election. “You need to introduce him to everybody you can,” Ultra-Mek Inc. President Steve Hoffman told his son, Shane, when Coble visited their furniture component manufacturing plant in Denton. “He needs their votes.” The challengers are among a whopping 48 Republicans running for North Carolina’s 13 congressional seats, the most in at least 20 years. They have arrived at a time of increasing disdain by Republicans and unaffiliated voters over what they call out-of-control spending in Congress and a liberal agenda by President Obama and other Democratic leaders on the finan-


DENTON (AP) – U.S. Rep. Howard Coble, the longest-serving GOP House member in North Carolina history, earned his stripes as a fiscal hawk by refusing to take a congressional pension. Coble’s name is as familiar to the voters who elected him by a 2-to-1 margin in 2008 as the worn black fedora and khaki-colored suit he wore on a recent day trip through Davidson County in the 6th District. He last ran in a Republican primary when he first won the seat in 1984. So why are five fellow GOP members so bent on going after his job this year? “I don’t know,” Coble said in a recent interview. “The climate is laced with anger and frustration and some of the people have said, ‘throw the bums out’.” An eclectic collection of opponents that include a well-drilling company owner, anesthesiologist and furniture showroom owner argue Coble, 79, hasn’t been vocal enough in opposing Democratic spending and failed to carry out party principles while Republicans were in charge of Congress. Some hint Coble’s time has passed. “I don’t think that he has the support of the people that he had,” said Guilford County commissioner Billy Yow, one challenger

Norcross turns adversity into positive force I

magine this scenario. The setting is a stateof-the-art research lab not unlike the mad scientist labs shown in many sci-fi movies. But there is no mad scientist here among the bubbly experiment vials, microscopes and agar dishes. ABOUT White coats abound TOWN scurrying among the Mary experiBogest ments as â&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  if on the verge of a medical breakthrough. Then suddenly all noise and action stops as the research scientist reaches for his ringing phone. He looks at the caller ID and says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I must take this call. It is Rena.â&#x20AC;? In other words, when Rena calls, people (research scientists, etc.) listen! Rena is Rena Norcross. The research lab is real. The phone call from Rena is undoubtedly real. Her passion to find a cure for MS (multiple sclerosis) is nationally recognized. The sky is the limit and the â&#x20AC;&#x153;skyâ&#x20AC;? is a cure for MS, a disease that Rena was diagnosed with over 20 years ago. You may think that I am exaggerating as I write these opening paragraphs but I am not. Not long ago, when I saw Rena at the Family Service Oyster Roast we talked about her MS. I have been concerned about her lately because I occasionally see her using a cane for her left leg. I hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen her use a cane until recently. I asked her about it. Instead of being â&#x20AC;&#x153;down,â&#x20AC;? she just flashed her signature smile and started telling me about all of the strides being made to both make better medicines for MS and ultimately find a cure. I cannot repeat what she told me because honestly, it was far â&#x20AC;&#x153;over my head.â&#x20AC;? She knew every medical term, every laboratory nomenclature as she keeps in touch with


Natalie and Rena Norcross with guest speaker Kristie Salerno Kent at the Tenth Annual MS Luncheon which raised over $100,000. the scientists and doctors dedicated to MS research. Rena and her husband Mark have become national figures of advocacy. Rena was inducted into the National MS Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Volunteer Hall of Fame in 2007 and Mark received the Norman Cohn Hope Award last year. These awards have been bestowed in part because of the Norcrossâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fundraising for the MS cause. In addition there is the Norcross Graduate School at HPU and the large donation for the new school at Immaculate Heart of Mary (these are just the ones I know about) which in turn led to another of the coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s honor as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Triad Philanthropist(s) of the Yearâ&#x20AC;? award bestowed by

the Triad Association of Fundraising Professionals. This year was the Tenth Annual MS Luncheon now held at the High Point Country Club but blossoming from an upstart with about 13 friends in the backyard of the Norcross home. This nationally renown luncheon that Mark completely underwrites so that all proceeds can go directly for MS has evolved into one of those â&#x20AC;&#x153;events not to be missed.â&#x20AC;? This year became an extra special year for the luncheon as another Norcross has stepped up for the MS cause. Daughterin-law Natalie, who married son Carson almost two years ago, joined Rena as co-chairman of

the event. But the good news doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t end there, in fact that is just where the good news begins. Natalie and Carson are expecting their first child later this year. There is great joy in the Norcross family. Congratulations to all. This luncheon has all of the ingredients of a â&#x20AC;&#x153;must goâ&#x20AC;? social fundraising event. The centerpieces designed around the theme of birds this year are incredible and are designed by the table hosts. The creativity in this community is unbelievable and before the luncheon even begins and amongst the conversation the â&#x20AC;&#x153;guestsâ&#x20AC;? who are asked for a minimum donation of $50 go table hopping to see each inno-

vative creation. Special kudos to Ken Hughes as being the only man who was a lone table host (Tom Dayvault was also listed but we all know that it was his wife Judy who was responsible for the centerpiece). William Newman who has MS cohosted with Lyl Clinard. Matt Theil hosted with his wife Emily as did Carson Norcross with his wife Natalie. Hughesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; daughter Lisa Allen has had MS for 20 years. I commended Hughes on his birdcage centerpiece (Pedro Silva of NC Shakespeare Festival helped Hughes). Hughes hopes that next year more men will participate. There were close to 50 table hosts who Rena describes as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;super glue of this event.â&#x20AC;? Among them Nancye Tothill, Kathryn Field, Mary Lou Brinson, Mariana Qubein, Ginger Lett and Grace Henley. In addition to hosts and hostesses there were numerous sponsors who were responsible for more than $75,000 of the over $100,000 raised. Special thanks went to Lynn Foscue, Penny Criddlebaugh, Debbie Workman, Lisa Trigueiro, Shannon Newman and Candy Fenn, who was awarded the first ever Norcross Award by Elizabeth Green, executive director of the Central North Carolina Chapter of the National MS Society. This award was established by the Central North Carolina Chapter to â&#x20AC;&#x153;acknowledge the impact of the Norcross family has made through their leadership and generous support of this luncheon, their support of MS related research and other significant contributions to assist individuals and their families with the daily challenges of MS and to recognize others who demonstrate this same passion, inspiration and dedication.â&#x20AC;? Rena stepped to the podium to welcome everyone. She told of a new medication that has just come out for MS patients and that she had just be-

gun taking it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just got it last week and I see a little difference in my left leg. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to use a cane even though I have some really cute ones,â&#x20AC;? she said before the speaker was introduced. There was laughter. She does have some cute canes. The speaker, Kristie Salerno Kent, who was diagnosed with MS in 1999 paused before speaking and then said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I look out at you. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see and audience. I see a sea of hope.â&#x20AC;? She spoke of her dreams of a career on the stage. At first she was in denial and thought of MS as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Must Stopâ&#x20AC;? life. She slowly began to realize that the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;dreamsâ&#x20AC;? also ends in â&#x20AC;&#x153;m and sâ&#x20AC;? but that her dreams would not end because of her MS. She has become a successful singer/songwriter/producer and CEO of her own Production Company but her biggest dream that came true was the birth of her son. Becky Dolinger closed the program with the â&#x20AC;&#x153;askâ&#x20AC;? and said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is amazing that these ladies that were diagnosed so many years ago with MS are walking without canes, without walkers, without wheelchairs! Rena and Mark Norcross are making that difference! MARY BOGEST is an artist and writer who resides in High Point |

Chronic hives drive people to the brink


ear Dr. Donohue: Help! Itching and scratching have driven me to the brink. For the past six months I have had crop after crop of hives. I have taken more antihistamines than you can name. No relief. Please provide some suggestions. These things are driving me crazy. – L.H.


You’re in a crowded boat. Lots of people suffer from an occasional outbreak of hives. Only a relatively few, around 1 percent of adults, have chronic hives, recurring outbreaks for more than six weeks. If someone out there isn’t familiar with a hive, it looks like a giant mosquito bite. Either your family doctor or an allergist has to take you by the hand and lead you through the long list of possible causes. Heat, cold, pressure (a tight belt or a tight bra), exercise and sunlight are things that can bring on hives. They’re called “physical” causes of hives. Although they’re not common causes, they should be considered. Foods, medicines, allergies and some illnesses bring on repeated hive outbreaks. Nuts, seafood and eggs are the foods most often implicated. Food additives are another possibility. Many medicines can lead to hives. Aspirin and the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (Aleve, Advil, Motrin, etc.) are potential culprits. Autoimmune diseases including some thyroid conditions, can generate hives. Parasite infections















are a consideration. Allergens including latex, pet saliva and pet dander can spark a hive HEALTH outbreak. The list of Dr. Paul possibiliDonohue ties is long. ■■■ The truth is that finding a cause is difficult. Antihistamines are the bedrock of treatment. Cetirizine (Zyrtec), fexofenadine (Allegra) and loratadine (Claritin) often are prescribed. Adding to an antihistamine a second medicine such as cimetidine (Tagamet), famotidine (Pepcid) or ranitidine (Zantac) might work. These medicines mostly are used to control stomach acid, but they have antihistamine properties too. In truly desperate cases, prednisone, one of the cortisone drugs, can be given as a single morning dose and then gradually reduced over three to four days. It works, but prolonged use has side effects, and relapses might occur when it is stopped. Dear Dr. Donohue: I developed a constant cough, day and night. I couldn’t get to sleep because of it. I had no fever, no chest pain and there was little mucus when I coughed. I finally saw my doctor, who said it was the blood pressure medicine I was taking. He stopped it, and in two days I was cured. Your readers should be alerted to this cause of a cough. I

never heard of it. – L.B. One class of high blood pressure medicines, ACE inhibitors, cause coughing in a relatively few users. Brand names of these drugs are: Capoten, Lotensin, Vasotec, Monopril, Zestril, Accupril, Aceon, Univasc, Altace and Mavik. Sometimes the cough induced by these medicines stops after a week or so of continued use. For those in whom it persists, a different class of high blood pressure medicines is the solution. Once the medicine is stopped, the coughing goes, but that can take as long as two weeks. Dear Dr. Donohue: Does being pregnant affect vision? I had 20/20 vision before I became pregnant. I am in my fourth month, and I have difficulty reading street signs at night and fine print in dim light like in restaurants. It hasn’t really affected my life, but it makes me wonder what’s going on. – P.K. The hormones of pregnancy often lead to fluid retention. The cornea, the clear part of the eye in front of the pupil, swells from fluid retention. That distorts vision. The problem subsides on delivery. You see your doctor regularly during your pregnancy, right? Mention this to the doctor. I believe your problem is what I described, but I don’t want to dismiss the possibility that something else is going on.

29-year-old store clerk wins $258 million Powerball jackpot

Casting Crowns wins artist of year at Dove Awards


Lottery winner Christopher Shaw holds a check following a ceremony at the Missouri Lottery offices Thursday in Jefferson City, Mo.

Reid makes immigration a priority WASHINGTON (AP) – Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, trailing in polls in heavily Hispanic Nevada, wants to pursue legislation to provide legal status for many unlawful immigrants before the Senate tackles a climate change and energy bill and as Democrats defend their congressional majorities ahead of the November congressional elections.

R e i d broached the change of priorities during a meeting this week Reid with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, according to two Democratic officials familiar with the developments. Pelosi has long said the Senate must vote before

the House on an immigration bill. “When you’re ready with one, we will take it up,” Pelosi says she told Reid. The slow-moving Senate is far from being ready for debate on either issue. And it’s not clear Democrats could muster the 60 votes this year or next to block Republican filibusters of either bill.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – For Casting Crowns, the Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away. Shortly after having its five-year winning streak as group of the year snapped at the 41st annual Dove Awards on Wednesday, the top-selling Christian supergroup won the night’s biggest award, the fan-voted artist of the year. “To me it’s extra special because the fans were voting,” Casting Crowns leader Mark Hall said. “It really wasn’t anywhere on our radar.” Producer and songwriter Jason Ingram was the night’s big winner with four awards. Ingram and Rusty Varenkamp won producer of the year for their work on Tenth Avenue North’s “Over And Underneath” and Ingram was part of the songwriting team that won song of the year for the band’s “By Your Side.” He also gets a trophy for being a producer on that song. He also was a cowriter on Bebo Norman’s inspirational song of the

year, “The Only Hope.” Need To Breathe earned three Doves for group of the year, rock/contemporary album of the year for “The Outsiders” and rock/contemporary song of the year for “Lay ’Em Down.” The Possum Kingdom, S.C., rock quartet, led by brothers Bear and Bo Rinehart, snapped Casting Crowns’ run in the group category, catching the audience by surprise. A host of acts took two awards, including Brandon Heath, who won male vocalist of the year for the second consecu-

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) – A 29year-old Missouri convenience store clerk has stepped forward as the winner of the $258.5 million Powerball jackpot. Chris Shaw was introduced at Missouri Lottery headquarters Thursday as the winner of the Powerball jackpot in Wednesday night’s drawing. Shaw bought the winning ticket Wednesday at the Break Time store where he works in the central Missouri town of Marshall. Lottery officials say Shaw will have to choose between a one-time cash lump sum of nearly $125 million, or a 29-year, 30-installment annuity. Break Time will receive $50,000 for selling the winning ticket. If Shaw chooses to take the lump sum amount, the state will receive $6 million in state income taxes.

Festivalofwords Tarheel writers come together in Jamestown for book fair BY JIMMY TOMLIN ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER


AMESTOWN – If anyone in North Carolina knows and understands the publishing world, Steve Kirk does. Not only is he a veteran editor for the John F. Blair publishing house in Winston-Salem – where he has edited more than 150 books – he’s also a published author. So Kirk well understands the euphoria and the agony that wannabe writers experience. “We get a couple thousand submissions a year – many of them from people who have been working on their manuscript for years – but we only publish about 10 books a year, so there’s a lot of heartbreak out there,” says Kirk, who has been with Friedlander John F. Blair since 1988. On Saturday, Kirk will be one of more than 30 authors participating in the Jamestown Writers and Readers Festival, a community book fair Kirk taking place at the Jamestown Public Library. The free festival will begin tonight with an opening talk and reception, and will resume with a full slate of book readings, signings and panel discussions Saturday. In addition to highlighting the participating authors – all of whom are from North Carolina – the festival will include panel discussions about how to get published, a bookbinding and conservation demonstration, storytelling with Appalachian storyteller Orville Hicks of “Jack Tales” fame, and a poetry reading by local students. “We have a little something for everyone,” says Julia Taylor Ebel, a Jamestown author who is coordinating the festival. “We have more than 30 authors, and it’s a real good mix of authors, from local history and heritage to poetry and nature and sports.” The sports book being highlighted at the festival is “Chasing Moonlight: The True Story of Field of Dreams’ Doc Graham,” an indepth look at the life of Archie “Moonlight” Graham, who was immortalized in the movie “Field of Dreams.” The book’s coauthors, Brett Friedlander and Robert Reising, are scheduled


Book editor Steve Kirk called “Chasing Moonlight” “the sort of thing you show up for work every morning hoping the mailman will deliver.” for a Saturday morning panel discussion about the popular book; also on the panel will be Steve Kirk, who edited the book for John F.

thought to ‘Moonlight’ Graham and who he really was. It’s the sort of book that is absolutely right up our alley. We do a lot of travel books and folklore, but this is the sort of thing you show up for work every morning hoping the mailman will deliver.” Kirk, in addition to discussing “Chasing Moonlight” – and the publishing business in general – will bring along copies of his own books, “Scribblers: Stalking the Authors of Appalachia” and “First in Flight: The Wright Brothers in North Carolina.” He is also a co-author of “Travel North Carolina: Going Native in the Old North State.” According to Ebel, this year’s festival has the best overall lineup of participants ever assembled at the event. “With as many authors as we have, there’s a real good mix,” she says. “We have some authors returning from years past, but we also have at least 15 new authors this year, plus the panel discussions and storytelling. We really think it’s going to be a great event.”



For the first time in its history, the Natural Science Center in Greensboro will be open all weekend and no longer just a half-day on Sundays. The new hours, which will take effect May 2, will be 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. With potential budget cuts looming, officials decided to take a proactive stand by expanding public hours on Sundays in hopes of increasing earned revenue to offset potential cuts. “Our choice is to be either reactive or proactive,” said Glenn Dobrogosz, executive director. “Our team is choosing to be proactive in hopes that expanded weekend hours will boost attendance, revenue and our statewide tourism appeal. There is no doubt that it is a risk, but one that we hope will pay off with more visitors and support.” The Natural Science Center is located at 4301 Lawndale Drive, Greensboro. For more information, visit the center’s Web site at www.natsci. org. | 888-3579



The Jamestown Writers and Readers Festival, a community book fair, opens at 7:30 tonight at the Jamestown Public Library, 200 W. Main St., with an opening talk and reception featuring Jerry Neal and Jerry Bledsoe, co-authors of “Fire in the Belly: Building a World-Leading HighTech Company from Scratch in Tumultuous Times.” Their book tells the story of the development of Neal’s Greensborobased company, RF Micro. (Bledsoe is also the author of “Bitter Blood” and numerous other titles.) The program will feature Neal as Guglielmo Marconi,

presenting “The Development and Applications Which Enabled Wireless Technology to Change the World.” The festival will resume Saturday, beginning at 9 a.m., with a full slate of activities including conversations, readings and book-signings with 30 North Carolina authors; storytelling; panel discussions on writing and getting published; and poetry readings by local students. Other authors and participants include Orville Hicks, Carol Andrews, Fran Andrews, Libby Bagby, Maggie Bishop, Mary Browning, Doug Butler, Steve


Cushman, Julia Taylor Ebel, Terry Kirby Erickson, Brett Friedlander, Nancy Gotter Gates, Bill Kaiser, Tim Pegram, Bob Reising, Steve Kirk, Sue Falcone, Sheree DeMao, Laine Cunningham, June Read, Lindy Clark, Gayle Chandler, Kristen Eckstein, Patricia Koehler, Monique Lallier, Don Etherington, Ralph E.

Cy the Cynic is no early riser: He says if God had meant man to see the sunrise, He’d have made the sun come up at a decent hour. Cy is also no early trump-drawer: He knows of good reasons to wait. As today’s declarer, Cy saw a possible loser in each suit. Club and diamond losers were certain. If the queen of trumps fell, Cy would be safe. Otherwise, he needed an end play. The Cynic started by ducking the first diamond. He won the next diamond and cashed the ace of trumps but then led a club. West won the second club and returned a club, and Cy finally tried to draw trumps by taking the king.

SPADE LOSER East discarded, but Cy still had a chance. He took the K-A of spades and exited with a trump. West had no more spades and had to lead a minorsuit card, and Cy ruffed in dummy and pitched his spade loser. Note that if Cy had taken both top trumps before forcing out the ace of clubs, West could have cashed his queen of trumps before exiting, avoiding the end play.



Friday, April 23, 2010 CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Melina Kanakaredes, 43; Valerie Bertinelli, 50; Craig Sheffer, 50; Jan Hooks, 53 HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Emotional deception will play a role in the way you react and the way others treat you this year. Look past what you want and see people for who they are. Center yourself and make the changes that will position you well for the future. Let the facts, not emotions, be your guide. Your numbers are 3, 10, 17, 25, 27, 36, 45 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Challenge yourself physically to get your heart pumping. Getting together with friends will boost your morale but it will also present you with emotional questions regarding someone you have known for some time. Stay out of an argument. ★★★★★ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Allowing yourself to get exhausted will leave you in a vulnerable state mentally, physically and emotionally and could lead to life-altering mistakes. Pamper and protect yourself and learn to say no. ★★ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Be a little secretive. It’s mystery and intrigue that will attract attention. Use your imagination and you can turn your home into the sanctuary you deserve. A little will go a long way, so don’t overspend or overdo. ★★★★ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Get your responsibilities out of the way so no one has anything to complain about. A couple of alterations at work will position you nicely for advancement. Don’t get bullied into taking care of someone else’s job. ★★★ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You can face situations with ultimatums or compromise. You cannot give in but you should meet somewhere in the middle. Don’t bully your way through a situation or you will have to deal with the consequences. ★★★ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Take a trip that will satisfy your curiosity about someone or something that interests you. Taking care of personal needs will bring good results as well as compliments from friends, family or your lover. ★★★ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You may not like what you have to do but, if it means you will secure your position or stabilize your future, it’s in your best interest. Use your imagination and you will realize the benefits that come along with making a strategic move, even if it does seem disruptive. ★★★ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Deception will be due to emotional issues. Whether it’s your not being honest with yourself or someone else withholding information, you must face facts and rectify the problem. Open up and talk candidly. A partnership is stronger than you realize. ★★★★ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Push to get things done and take care of your responsibilities. You will be successful if you work hard but criticized if you leave things undone or for someone else to complete. A lack of honesty will work against you. ★★ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Pull out all the ammunition and put your plans in motion. What you accomplish now will put you in a position of power among your peers, colleagues and friends. Believe in yourself and so will everyone around you. ★★★ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You will not see clearly an emotional situation you face. Expect someone to keep information from you to spare your feelings or to avoid an awkward situation. Don’t let a bad relationship bring out the worst in you. Separate yourself from the people who contribute to your bad habits. ★★★ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Someone who thinks differently will disapprove of what you are doing if you reveal too much information. Consistency will help you move ahead of the competition. Love is in the stars and is probably a better place to put your energy. ★★★

ANSWER: Partner’s jump-shift was a try for slam that seems to be based on a big club fit. Since you’ve already suggested notrump, to persist with 3NT would be wrong. Bid three diamonds. Partner will welcome that bid if he has K 8, 3, K Q J 8 4, A Q 10 6 5, but if you bid 3NT, he might pass. South dealer N-S vulnerable

St. Louis picks Bradford



Aaron Brooks, Houston’s 6-foot point guard, was named the NBA’s Most Improved Player on Thursday, after setting career highs in points (19.6 per game), assists (5.3) and rebounds (2.6). Brooks earned 403 of a possible 615 points, including 62 first-place votes. Kevin Durant of Oklahoma City, George Hill of San Antonio and Marc Gasol from Memphis tied for second with 101 total points each.



Easy as 1-2-3-4 for Big 12 in NFL draft. 4D ST. LOUIS (AP) – The St. Louis Rams picked Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford with the No. 1 selection in the NFL draft Thursday night, hoping he can help revive a franchise that has slid a long way from its days as “The Greatest Show on Turf.” St. Louis was 1-15 a year ago and has a sorry 6-42 record the past three years. Bradford was the 2008 Heisman Trophy winner, and he convinced the Rams that he has recovered from shoulder surgery last October. Releasing Marc Bulger earlier this month all but cinched the Rams’ decision. A.J. Feeley, who signed a free agent deal, has 15 career starts in 10 seasons. Rookie Keith Null threw three TD passes with nine interceptions last season. Kyle Boller signed with the Raiders and Mike Reilly, a late-season pickup, has no NFL experience.

Kivett still has room for latecomers BY STEVE HANF ENTERPRISE SPORTS WRITER

HIGH POINT – The numbers likely will be down when the final field is announced for the 34th annual Bud Kivett Memorial City Golf Championship. The numbers on the scoreboard should be low as well, said Steve High. “We’ve still got good players in the field and it will still be a good tournament,” said High, Director of Golf for the city of High Point. The Bud Kivett is open to the first 216 amateur golfers 16 years old and up, but only about 130 players had registered by Thursday morning. High extended the deadline to noon today and said the goal will be to land about 180 players. Golfers can register by calling Oak Hollow Golf Course at 883-3260 or visiting http:// The entry fee is $35 and does not include greens fees for the weekend, but all tournament proceeds go to High Point Re-

Bud Kivett was a mail carrier who won five city titles and a number of statewide events before dying of heart failure in the mid-1970s. Play begins Saturday morning at Blair Park before the final 18 holes shifts to Oak Hollow on Sunday. “Both golf courses are in excellent condition,” High said. “If the weather cooperates, it will be a great Bud Kivett.” High cited the economy and the threat of storms both days as the reason entries were off. Defending champion Kevin Atkins apparently will not play this year, but six former winners are in the field: Jay Hoover, Danny Southern, Garland Yates, Marc Cox, Chris Cas-

NCAA expands March Madness from 65 to 68 INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – The NCAA has decided not to mess around too much with March Madness. College sports’ largest governing body announced a 14-year, $10.8 billion deal with CBS and Turner Broadcasting on Thursday that will begin with an expanded men’s basketball tournament next March. But instead of jumping to a 96-team field, a possibility that drew criticism from bracket-obsessed fans to coaches, the NCAA plans to expand by only three teams, from 65 to 68. Every game will be broadcast live nationally for the first time in the tournament’s 73year history. “It was a goal from the very, very beginning and I believe it’s what our membership wanted and it’s what our fans wanted across the country,” NCAA interim president Jim Isch said. “I think without question, it was one of the driving factors in our position and why CBS and Turner make such great partners.” Striking a balance was a challenge for NCAA officials. The previous television deal, which gave CBS Sports the broadcast rights for $6 billion over 11 years, would have expired in three years. Both sides had opt-out clauses that had to be exercised by July 31 and the NCAA was preparing to do just that. The hope was to create a bidding war and strike a lucrative deal, generating more money for NCAA payouts to schools. CBS Sports won the war, beating out at least an offer from ESPN. What’s new is that CBS will share broadcast rights with Atlanta-based Turner Broadcasting System Inc. and its stable of cable channels – TNT, TBS and truTV – from 2011 through 2024.




’m always impressed when professional athletes do the honorable thing. It seems to happen less and less frequently these days. That’s why the actions of PGA golfer Brian Davis deserve a hearty attaboy. Davis called a two-stroke penalty on himself when he nicked a loose reed during his backswing on the first playoff hole at the Verizon Heritage on Sunday.

His honest act meant Davis could not secure his first career PGA victory. Jim Furyk took the title after Davis’ penalty, a violation of rule 13.4 against moving a loose impediment during a takeaway. The violation could only be detected via slow motion replay. Davis could have held his tongue and it’s likely nobody would have caught the penalty until well after the tournament was over.

But that would have gone against the rules and the spirit of the game. Davis did not hesitate in calling the penalty. By finishing second, Davis took home $615,000. Furyk pocketed $1,026,000 for the victory. But forget the money. The respect and admiration Davis earned are priceless.

Milwaukee matched a club mark for margin of victory and set a record for its biggest shutout win. Prince Fielder hit his first home run of the season and Edmonds, Braun and George Kottaras also connected â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they were among 10 players with an RBI. The Brewers finished with 12 extra-base hits. Milwaukee led 10-0 after five innings, then scored six runs in the seventh and four more in the ninth. The rout came a day after the Brewers beat up Pittsburgh 8-0. Edmonds doubled twice and singled, while Braun added a double and single to drive in five runs.

The Piratesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; previous one-sided loss was by 18 runs, done twice. Milwaukee swept the three-game series and outscored the Pirates 36-1.

The Braves took a .227 team batting average into the game after being shut out 2-0 by Roy Halladay on Wednesday night. They had nine hits, including only four against the 47-year-old Moyer (2-1), who struck out four and walked two.

Jeff Francoeur broke an 0-for-24 slump with an RBI single in the Metsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; four-run sixth. Ike Davis had three hits and New York took three of four from the Cubs after dropping its first four series this season.

REDS 8, DODGERS 5 CINCINNATI â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Scott Rolen hit a goahead, two-run double to spark a seventh-inning rally and rookie Mike Leake earned his first major league victory in the Cincinnati Redsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 8-5 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Thursday night.

OAKLAND, Calif. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Kurt Suzuki hit a three-run homer, Dallas Braden outdueled CC Sabathia and the Oakland Athletics overcame the Yankeesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; first triple play since 1968 to beat New York 4-2 Thursday. The Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s managed only four hits but benefited from a career hightying six walks by Sabathia (2-1) while ending their season-high, three-game losing streak. Braden (3-0) scattered six hits over six innings. He also engaged in a heated exchange with Yankees star Alex Rodriguez while leaving the field â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it was not clear what they argued about, but Braden threw his glove against a wall and kicked a stack of paper cups when he went into the dugout. Rodriguez then helped the Yan-

Happ on the 15-day disabled list with a strained forearm on Thursday, leaving the team with two injured starting pitchers. The Phillies activated lefty reliever J.C. Romero. He had been at TripleA Lehigh Valley recovering from surgery on his left elbow. General manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said righthander Nelson Figueroa will take Happâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next scheduled start on Saturday at Arizona. Figueroa was claimed off waivers from the Mets on April 7.


kees turn an around-the-horn triple play moments later. Braden had to be restrained by manager Bob Geren after jawing with Rodriguez following Robinson Canoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s double-play grounder that ended the top of the sixth. Braden yelled over his right shoulder as he stepped across the third base line and Rodriguez yelled back. The two kept screaming at each other until Geren came out and walked Braden off the field. The Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quickly put runners on first and second in the bottom of the sixth and Kurt Suzuki hit a sharp grounder to Rodriguez, who stepped on third base and threw to Cano at second. Canoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relay to first baseman Nick Johnson barely beat Suzuki. The Yankees had gone 6,632 consecutive regular-season games without a triple play.

BCS releases formula for automatic qualification SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) – The Bowl Championship Series has released its formula for determining how conferences, such as the Mountain West, can earn an BCS automatic bid. The BCS uses three criteria that measure conference strength over a four-year period. The criteria are: the ranking of the highestranked team in the final BCS standings; the final regular-season computer rankings of all the teams in a conference; and the number of teams in the top 25 of the final BCS standings. Six conferences – the Big East, Big Ten, Big 12, ACC, SEC and Pac-10 – have automatic bids that are contractually bound through the 2013 season. Another league could earn an automatic bid if it meets certain thresholds using those criteria.

AVONDALE, La. – Jason Bohn took advantage of calm morning conditions Thursday in the Zurich Classic, shooting a 7-under 65 to take a two-stroke lead over Jason Dufner, John Senden, Jeff Overton, Greg Owen and 2006 champion Chris Couch. Bohn had eight birdies and one bogey – when he tried to reach the par-5 18th green in two stokes and ended up in the water – at TPC Louisiana. Five players – former British Open champion David Duval, Charles Howell III, Kevin Sutherland, 2002 winner K.J. Choi and Troy Merritt – opened with 68s. Defending champion Jerry Kelly shot a 71.



Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford (right) holds up a jersey with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell after he was selected as the No. 1 overall pick in the first round of the NFL Draft by the St. Louis Rams on Thursday at Radio City Music Hall in New York.

Big 12 dominates NFL Draft NEW YORK (AP) – The Big 12, led by Oklahoma, kicked off a big party for itself at Radio City Music Hall in the first prime-time NFL draft Thursday night. The Rockettes would have loved it. Starting with quarterback Sam Bradford going to the St. Louis Rams, five of the top six picks were from the Big 12 – three of them Sooners. The Oklahoma junior became the eighth quarterback since 2001 taken atop the draft. He was immediately followed Thursday night by defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh of Nebraska, the AP Player of the Year; DT Gerald McCoy and OT Trent Williams, Bradford’s teammates with the Sooners. “That’s pretty cool because I know the Big 12 has been getting a lot of slack lately,” Bradford said. “People for some reason didn’t think that we played much football in the Big 12 and sure didn’t think we played much defense, so for two defensive tackles to go in the first three picks is a credit to the Big 12.” And what about the Sooners’ run at the top of the festivities? “It’s insane isn’t it?” McCoy said with a huge smile. “We can’t play football in the Big 12, but the first four picks went out the Big 12? Mmmmm – three of ’em from Oklahoma, by the way.” Bradford, the 2008 winner of the Heisman Trophy, joins a Rams team that was 1-15 last season and scored a leaguelow 175 points. The Rams cut incumbent Marc Bulger in the offseason. Bradford appeared in only three games in 2009, his junior year, before undergoing right shoulder surgery. His recovery has been so complete that the Rams didn’t hesitate to make him the future face of the franchise. Detroit then chose Suh, considered the best defensive tackle prospect in more than a decade. He won the Lombardi, Bednarik and Nagurski trophies in 2009 and comes off a dominant Big 12 title

game in which he had 12 tackles with 41⁄2 sacks. He was greeted by “SUH, SUH,” as he walked onto the stage holding a Lions jersey. McCoy should boost a Tampa defense that once was feared but flopped last season when it yielded 400 points. He displayed his Buccaneers jersey to the crowd and pumped his fist high in the air as “Pirates of the Caribbean” played on the loudspeakers. The Big 12 bonanza kept rolling when Washington took Williams, an All-America, to fill a huge hole at tackle left by the retirement of Chris Samuels. Williams engulfed commissioner Roger Goodell in a hefty bear hug onstage. Tennessee safety Eric Berry, also an All-American, went fifth to Kansas City, breaking the Big 12 stranglehold. Berry, noted for his versatility, also has the potential to play cornerback. Then it was back to the Big 12 for Oklahoma State OT Russell Okung, who went to Seattle, where perennial Pro Bowl blocker Walter Jones might retire. Florida cornerback Joe Haden was chosen by Cleveland, followed by Alabama inside linebacker Rolando McClain to Oakland. Both were All-Americans last season. Clemson running back C.J. Spiller went ninth to Buffalo. Jacksonville took California DT Tyson Alualu, projected as a second-rounder by many. San Francisco then moved up two spots, dealing for Denver’s pick to get Rutgers OT Anthony Davis. San Diego, desperate for a running back after cutting LaDainian Tomlinson, jumped from 28th overall to 12th in a trade with Miami. The Chargers took Fresno State’s Ryan Mathews, the nation’s leading rusher at 150.7 yards per game. Tight end Jermaine Gresham of, – guess where – Oklahoma, was selected by Cincinnati. That made four Sooners and eight players from the Big 12 in the first 22 picks.

Renner quits UNC baseball to focus on football CHAPEL HILL (AP) – Bryn Renner is leaving North Carolina’s baseball team to focus on football. The freshman played 15 games at first base and as a designated hitter. He said Thursday he would concentrate on playing

quarterback for Butch Davis’ team. He alternated between both sports during spring football practice. Renner redshirted last season and completed 15 of 21 passes for 184 yards with a touchdown and an interception two weeks

ago in the Tar Heels’ spring game. Afterward, Davis said that while three-year starter T.J. Yates has earned to right to either win or lose the job, Renner was in position to compete to be a starter or get significant playing time.

JEJU ISLAND, South Korea – Australia’s Marcus Fraser shot a 7-under 65 on Thursday to take a onestroke lead in the suspended first round of the fogdisrupted Ballantine’s Championship. England’s Mark Foster opened with a 66 at Pinx Golf Club in the event sanctioned by the European and Asian tours and the Korea PGA. Play was delayed for six hours by fog, then suspended because of darkness with only 36 players able to finish. South Africa’s Ernie Els and American Anthony Kim shot 68s. South Korean star Y.E. Yang, playing a tournament on his home island for the first time since winning the PGA Championship last year, birdied the first hole before play was suspended for the day.

Bulls hang on to beat Cavs, 108-106 CHICAGO (AP) – LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers can forget about sweeping the Bulls out of the playoffs. Derrick Rose scored 31 points, Kirk Hinrich added 27 and Chicago hung to beat the topseeded Cavaliers 108-106 Thursday night in Game 3 of their first-round series after watching a 21-point lead dwindle to one. James scored 13 of his 39 points in the fourth quarter and nailed a 3-

pointer with 3.8 seconds left that made it 107-106 The Cavaliers immediately fouled Chicago’s Luol Deng, who hit the first free throw but missed the second. Cleveland’s Anthony Parker got the rebound and raced up the right side but missed a 3 at the buzzer, and the Bulls escaped with the win. They will try to tie the best-of-seven series at two games apiece on Sunday.

Offensive woes put Bobcats in 0-2 hole against Magic CHARLOTTE (AP) – The extra practice didn’t help the Bobcats. Coach Larry Brown’s motivational speech on Orlando taking a day off while they worked failed, too. So maybe it was a good idea Charlotte took the day off Thursday. Perhaps some time away will help the Bobcats solve the riddle of putting the ball through the hoop when they return home for Game 3 on Saturday. For all the talk of how Charlotte would attempt to contain Dwight Howard and Orlando’s 3-point shooters, the major reason the Bobcats are down 0-2 in the best-of-seven playoff series is the Magic have exposed their turnover-filled, dysfunctional offense. “You can’t afford on the road to take bad shots and turn the ball over,” Brown said. The Bobcats have struggled offensively all season, ranking 28th out of 30 teams in scoring (95.28 points per game) and 22nd in field goal percentage (45.3). Only woeful Minnesota averaged more turnovers than Charlotte’s 15.7 per game. The Bobcats’ limitations have been magnified playing against NBA defensive player of the year Howard and the Magic, who allowed teams to shoot an NBA-low 43.8 percent from the field during the regular season. Charlotte fell behind big early and committed 16 turnovers in a 98-89 series-opening loss Sunday. While the Bobcats practiced the next day, coach Stan Van Gundy gave the Magic the day off, prompting Brown to tell his players, “That’s how (expletive) seriously they’re taking us.” Trouble is, the Bobcats were even worse in Game 2 on Wednesday. Getting off to another tentative start, they had 30 points at halftime, 77 for the game and committed 21 turnovers in a 15-point loss.

Carmakers show new models in Beijing BEIJING (AP) — Daimler AG unveiled its new ultra-luxury Maybach sedan Thursday as automakers began a flurry of new vehicle launches at the Beijing auto show in a scramble for China’s fast-growing market amid slack sales elsewhere. The show, in a country with almost no private cars 15 years ago, has risen to the top ranks of global auto industry events as China’s explosive sales growth drove this market past the United States in 2009 to become the world’s biggest.

Obama slams Wall Street NEW YORK (AP) — President Barack Obama rebuked Wall Street for risky practices Thursday even as he sought its leaders’ help for “updated, commonsense” regulations to head off any new financial crisis. “Ultimately there is no dividing line between Main Street and Wall Street. We rise or we fall together as one nation. So I urge you to join me,” Obama said in a highstakes speech near the nation’s financial hub. The president acknowledged differences of opinion over how to best protect bailout-weary

taxpayers but denounced criticism from some Republicans who claim a Democratic-sponsored bill headed for Senate action would encourage rather than discourage future bailouts of huge banks. “That may make for a good sound bite, but it’s not factually accurate,” Obama said. He said the overhaul legislation would “put a stop to taxpayer-funded bailouts.” Obama’s speech came at a delicate time in negotiations over the Senate measure, which could be debated next week. The House has passed its own version

of financial overhaul legislation. Obama did not say which one he favored but told an audience that included dozens of financial leaders “both bills represent significant improvement on the flawed rules we have in place today.” He portrayed his appearance at Cooper Union college, in lower Manhattan, as a reprise of a campaign speech he gave at the same location in March 2008 to offer an agenda for financial regulatory reform. “Since I last spoke here two years ago, our country has been through a terrible trial,” he said,

pointing to the loss of more than 8 million jobs, the losing of “countless small businesses,” trillions of dollars in lost savings and people forced to put off retirement or postpone college. “I take no satisfaction in noting that my comments have largely been borne out by the events that followed,” Obama said. Obama said that today, the economy is recovering in what he called “the fastest turnaround in growth in nearly three decades.” “But we have more work to do. Until this progress is felt not just on Wall

Brazilian state suspends Corolla sales

Auto company adds 350 jobs

SAO PAULO (AP) — A Brazilian state says it has suspended the sale of Toyota Corollas due to the risk of sudden acceleration. A statement by the consumer protection agency of Minas Gerais state says the suspension began Thursday. It says the owners of nine Corollas manufactured by the company’s Brazilian subsidiary reported sudden acceleration problems.

DURHAM (AP) — A North Carolina company that makes automatic transmissions and components says it’s adding up to 360 jobs over the next two years so it can build and ship a new line for Toyota, transferring the work from Japan. AW North Carolina said Thursday the new line will manufacture and ship fully assembled front-wheel-drive automatic transmissions for Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing North America. The production will start in the fall of 2011. In January 2009, the company cited the slumping economy as its reason for laying off 280 workers and offering voluntary severance to salaried employees.

CenturyTel seeking to buy Qwest NEW YORK (AP) — CenturyTel Inc., the country’s fifth-largest local-phone company, said Thursday that it will buy Qwest Communications International Inc., the third-largest, in a stock swap worth $10.6 billion to gain the benefits of scale in a shrinking business. The combined company would have about 18 million phone lines serving customers in 37 states, but would still be dwarfed by AT&T Inc. and Verizon Communications Inc.

Morgan loses $932M in casino ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — Just how bad have things gotten in the nation’s second-largest gambling market? Wall Street giant Morgan Stanley decided it was better to take a $932 million loss on a casino-hotel it was developing in Atlantic City than spend the $1 billion it will take to finish Revel. Revel Entertainment is trying to secure the remaining financing for the project from China’s Export/Import bank. Revel spokesman Joe Jaffoni praised Morgan Stanley’s support so far. “Revel has made substantial progress on the development of what will be a truly unique, premium resort entertainment casino,” he said.


Street but Main Street we cannot be satisfied,” he added. Taking his argument for stronger oversight of the financial industry to the city where the economic meltdown began, Obama said it was “essential that we learn the lessons of this crisis, so we don’t doom ourselves to repeat it. And make no mistake, that is exactly what will happen if we allow this moment to pass.” Obama’s speech was an effort to ramp up pressure on Congress for legislation imposing new financial regulations.

Home sales rise, jobless claims drop WASHINGTON (AP) — Home sales rose sharply last month and claims for jobless benefits fell last week. The two reports Thursday sketched a picture of a modestly improving economy. Sales of previously occupied homes increased more than expected in March after three straight months of declines, the National Association of Realtors said. The housing market benefited from government incentives that drew in buyers. Purchases jumped 6.8 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.35 million last month,

the highest level since December. The median sales price was $170,700, nearly unchanged from a year earlier. Some economists expect healthy sales to continue, but caution that a clearer picture of the housing market will emerge after federal tax credits expire at the end of this month. “The spring selling season will be a success and probably the most active we’re seen in years,” said Stuart Hoffman, chief economist at PNC Financial Services Group. In a separate report Thursday, initial claims for unemployment ben-

efits fell by 24,000 to a seasonally adjusted 456,000, the Labor Department said. That nearly matched analysts’ estimates, according to Thomson Reuters. The drop comes after claims rose sharply in the previous two weeks. A Labor Department analyst attributed those increases to seasonal adjustment difficulties around the Easter holiday, which falls on different weeks each year. Still, many economists have been disappointed claims haven’t fallen faster, which would signal more hiring. Initial claims

are at about the same level they were at the beginning of the year, after rising sharply in February due to snowstorms on the East Coast. “Claims have made a long trip to nowhere for three and half months,” said Dan Greenhaus, chief economic strategist at Miller Tabak. The four-week average of claims, which smooths volatility, increased by 2,750 to 460,250. Claims have slowly trended down over the past year. Applications for jobless benefits peaked during the recession at 651,000 in March 2009.

US Air ends talks with United ATLANTA (AP) — US Airways Group Inc. said Thursday it has ended talks with United Airlines about a combination, preferring to remain a standalone carrier for now and wait to see if United and Continental Airlines reach a deal of their own. United did not directly address US Airways’ comments in a statement emailed to The Associated Press, saying only that it continues to believe the industry would benefit from consolidation. US Airways’ announcement came after word that United and Continental had exchanged financial information as a prelude to a possible combination.

Yadkin Valley Financial posts modest income MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

WINSTON-SALEM —Yadkin Valley Financial Corp. reported today that it had $143,000 in net income in the first quarter. By comparison, the bank had a loss of $4.6 mil-

lion in the first quarter of 2009 and net income of $3.2 million in the fourth quarter. In each of those quarters, the bank has paid a preferred dividend to the U.S. Treasury as part of its participation in the capital-repurchase

program. For example, it paid a $771,000 dividend in the first quarter of 2010. Diluted earnings were 1 cent a share compared with a loss of 40 cents a share a year ago and earnings of 20 cents in the fourth quarter.



Pepsi profit rises NEW YORK (AP) — Strong sales of PepsiCo Inc.’s snacks and drinks in developing markets helped its first-quarter profit rise 26 percent, beating analyst estimates. Frito-Lay North America snacks sales rose slightly, while sales of snacks and beverages posted doubledigit gains in India and China, Pepsi said Thursday. Beverage sales volume was soft in the U.S. and Europe as shoppers reduce spending and switch to juices and teas. The international gains mirrored rival Coca-Cola Co.’s results earlier in the week. Coca-Cola credited the billions it is spending in countries such as China, India and Brazil to boost manufacturing capacity and marketing for the improvements. The world’s top two beverage makers are racing to ramp up in these countries as their economies develop and lure buyers who can be lifelong customers. Such high-growth markets are increasingly important to the companies as they shy away from the stagnant U.S. and European markets,



J&J shareholders reject pay proposal NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) — Shareholders of health care giant Johnson & Johnson have narrowly rejected a proposal to give themselves a “say on pay” of top executives.

It comes at a packed annual meeting in the company’s headquarters town, New Brunswick, N.J.

Union Pacific profit jumps on demand OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Union Pacific said Thursday that stronger shipping demand drove the railroad’s first-quarter profit 43 percent higher and suggested the economy is improving. The Omaha, Neb.based railroad said it earned net income of $516 million, or $1.01 per share, in the quarter. That’s up from the $362 million, or 72 cents per share, Union Pacific generated last year during the Great Recession.

Nokia posts profit in first quarter HELSINKI (AP) — Nokia Corp.’s firstquarter net profit surged to €349 million ($467 million) from €122 million a year earlier, with strong growth in smart phone sales and 3 percent growth in total revenue, the company said Thursday. But its stock closed down more than 14 percent at €9.63 ($12.85) in Helsinki as markets had expected a better performance, a more upbeat forecast and saw increased competition as hurting the world’s top cell phone maker.

PepsiCo products, including drinks, snack food, syrup, and cereal, are seen together in Providence, R.I. where shoppers are reducing spending and switching to juices and teas. Analysts say these countries represent strong opportunities for growth because people there simply don’t eat as many of these snacks like Doritos or drink soft drinks like Pepsi. CEO Indra Nooyi said the investments made in these countries — to build and expand manufacturing plants and add distribution — are worth it. “We don’t look at it as a drag. We look at it as an exciting market with tremen-

dous growth opportunities,” she told investors on a conference call Thursday. The company, based in Purchase, N.Y., said it made more investments in key markets such as China and plans to increase its spending on infrastructure and research and development in the second quarter, though it declined to give specifics. PepsiCo can plow savings from its buyout of its two largest North American bottlers in the quarter into growth in these new areas.

High prices boost Reynolds income MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

WINSTON-SALEM — Reynolds American Inc. reported today that it had $82 million in net income in the first quarter, up sharply from a year ago. Excluding charges taken in the quarter, including trademark impairments and settlement charges involving three branches of Canadian government, the company posted net income of $325 million, up 10.9 percent. Diluted earnings — including charges — were 28 cents a chare, up from 3 cents a year ago. Excluding charges, diluted earnings were $1.11 a share, up 11 cents. Most analysts exclude charges in their earnings forecasts. The average forecast was $1.07 by ana-

lysts surveyed by Zacks Investment Research. Reynolds said that higher cigarette pricing, moist-snuff volume and productivity offset lower cigarette volume and higher promotional expense. The company reaffirmed its adjusted earnings guidance for fiscal 2010 in the range of $4.80 to $5. That excludes charges related to health-care and Canadian governments’ settlements. On April 13, R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co. said it had agreed to a settlement with Canadian federal, provincial and territorial governments to resolve civil claims of cigarette smuggling into Canada during the 1980s and 1990s. The settlement cost was $325 million for Reynolds.

IMF chief: Greek crisis ‘serious’ WASHINGTON (AP) — The head of the International Monetary Fund said Thursday that the debt crisis in Greece is serious and there would be no “silver bullet” to resolve the issue in an easy manner. IMF Managing Director Dominique Strauss-Kahn said that negotiations with the IMF over conditions for a support package were just beginning and would take some time to come to a resolution. But Strauss-Kahn told reporters the IMF was not considering some type of restructuring of Greek debt that would make holders of the debt accept something less than full value for their loans. That worry has roiled markets. “It is clear that the Greek situation is a very serious one,” Strauss-Kahn said.

“There is no single way, no silver bullet to solve it in an easy manner.” Strauss-Kahn spoke in advance of discussions over the next three days among global finance officials including finance ministers and central bank governors of the Group of 20 nations, which include the world’s richest industrial countries and major developing nations such as China, Brazil, India and Russia. While markets slammed Greece on Thursday after the European Union revised the country’s deficit and debt figures, Strauss-Kahn said for the IMF team negotiating the terms of financial support, the changes would just mean that “if the problems start a little worse than expected, we will take this into account.”

Stocks recover after Obama remarks NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks recovered from early losses and closed modestly higher Thursday after President Barack Obama’s speech on financial reform contained no unpleasant surprises. The Dow Jones industrial average rose about 9 points after being down as much as 108. Broader indexes also turned higher. The market fell sharply early in the day on concerns about Greece’s continuing debt problems, and on fears that Obama would advocate tough restrictions on banks. When he didn’t, stocks recovered. Prices also got a boost from a jump in sales of existing homes last month. In a speech in New York, Obama said the economy is recovering quickly but the progress needs to be felt more deeply among the millions of unemployed Americans. He has blamed Wall Street for helping push the country into recession. Obama gave a speech in support of his efforts to pass legislation that would overhaul financial markets. The Senate may debate the financial overhaul bill next week. The House has already passed its own version. Earlier, investors were rattled by news about Greece. The country’s borrowing costs surged again when Europe’s statistics agency found that Greece’s budget deficit last year was even larger than previously thought.

Sallie Mae cuts 2,500 jobs NEW YORK (AP) – Sallie Mae says a new law that cuts banks out of the federal student loan business is costing 2,500 workers their jobs. The nation’s largest student lender has told 1,200 staffers in service centers in Killeen, Texas, and Panama City, Fla., they will lose their jobs by year-end. The remaining

cuts will follow in 2011, resulting in nearly a third of the company’s total work force of 8,000 losing their jobs. The company has also dramatically reduced its private loan originations as a result of tighter underwriting standards. It did not specify how much that factored into the job cuts.

Sallie Mae, which is based in Reston, Va., maintained the cuts result from changes made to the federal student loan program as part of the health care reform signed by President Barack Obama last month. The law strips the middleman role in student lending away from banks. It’s expected to save at least $60 billion in fees.

Demonstrators rally against commercial whaling on the Mall in Washington on Earth Day Thursday. had organized anti-war, civil rights and feminist rallies in the 1960s. Today, the environmental cause is far more sophisticated, with thousands of environmental lawyers and advocates with advanced degrees and corporations rushing to advertise “green” products.

“But some of that passion that we had in 1970 has faded,” Hayes said. The original Earth Day was the brainchild of the late Sen. Gaylord Nelson, D-Wis., who called for a nationwide teach-in on the environment in a speech in Seattle in September 1969.

His daughter, Tia Nelson, said he decided to launch it after a major oil spill in California, and wrote the speech on airplane napkins. Forty years ago Thursday, the youth-driven movement sparked participation of about 2,000 college campuses and

10,000 elementary and high schools. Congress adjourned so members could give speeches, tens of thousands of people filled Fifth Avenue in New York City and millions took part across the country in activities like trash removal and bicycle rides.

Blagojevich wants Obama to testify at his trial CHICAGO (AP) – Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich asked a federal judge on Thursday to issue a subpoena for President Barack Obama to testify as a witness at his corruption trial. Blagojevich said in court papers filed by defense attorney Sam Adam that Obama would be able to resolve questions surrounding the government’s alle-

gation that the former governor sought to sell or trade the seat left vacant following the president’s November 2008 election. “President Barack Obama has direct knowledge of the Senate seat allegation,” Blagojevich’s 11-page motion filed with U.S. District Judge James B. Zagel said. There was no allegation in the

court papers of any wrongdoing on Obama’s part. It would be extraordinary if a sitting president were subpoenaed to take the witness stand in a Chicago political corruption trial or any criminal trial. Zagel has not indicated how he might respond to the unusual request. A spokesman for the U.S. attorney’s office, Randall Sambo-

Chemistry of oceans changing rapidly

40 years later, Earth Day now mainstream WASHINGTON (AP) – There was no green movement yet and little talk of global warming. Instead, the original Earth Day 40 years ago emphasized “ecology” and goals like cleaning up pollution and litter – along with a more anti-establishment vibe than today. “Welcome, sulfur dioxide, hello, carbon monoxide,” a woman sang from the 1968 countercultural Broadway hit, “Hair,” at a rally in Philadelphia that day. Across the country, activists donned gas masks or spread out in grassy parks to hear speeches about overpopulation, smog and dirty rivers. “It was brand new on the scene. We were basically using a new vocabulary,” recalled Denis Hayes, who was the 25-year-old national coordinator for that first Earth Day. “So it was all fresh. “In 1969, most Americans couldn’t even define the word environment,” Hayes said. “By the end of 1970, a huge fraction of them thought of themselves as environmentalists.” The movement capitalized on the experience and passion of activists who

rn, had no comment. Messages seeking comment were left at the offices of Adam and two other defense attorneys, Samuel E. Adam and Sheldon Sorosky. Defense attorney Michael E. Ettinger, who represents the former governor’s brother, businessman Robert Blagojevich, said he was not surprised by the unusual motion.

WASHINGTON (AP) – The chemistry of the oceans is changing faster than it has in hundreds of thousands of years because of the carbon dioxide being absorbed from the atmosphere, the National Research Council reported Thursday. Carbon dioxide and other industrial gases have been a concern for several years because of their impact on the air, raising global temperatures in a process called the greenhouse effect. One factor easing that warmth has been the amount of CO2 taken up by the oceans, but that has also caused scientific concerns because the chemicals make the water more acidic, which can affect sea life. Since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution in the 18th century, the pH of ocean water has declined from 8.2 to 8.1 and a further decline of 0.2 to 0.3 units is expected by the end of this century, according to the Research Council, an arm of the National Academy of Science. The current rate of change “exceeds any known change in ocean chemistry for at least 800,000 years,” the report said. As most folks will remember from school chemistry, pH is a measure of how alkaline or acidic something is. A pH of 7 is neutral, while higher numbers are more alkaline and lower numbers are more acidic. As the ocean becomes more acidic scientists have raised concern about dissolving coral reefs and potential effects on fish and other sea life.
