“I know I have a 30-year entrenched veteran I’m going up against,” Brandon said, referring to Jones’ years in the N.C. General Assembly and on the Greensboro council. Brandon, who has a background as a political consultant, has been going door to door in the district, visiting at least 3,000 residences in a year, he said. Brandon, who grew up in Greensboro, has set up a campaign headquarters on Thissell Street in High Point. He argues that Jones hasn’t provided productive representation for constituents, meaning the district hasn’t gained resources it deserves to combat problems such as infant mortality, AIDS and unemployment. Jones disputes Brandon’s

accusations, saying he has spent decades in the trenches taking on issues of importance to his constituents. Jones, the chairman of the Guilford County legislative delegation, was one of the early backers of the sit-in memorial that opened Feb. 1 as the International Civil Rights Museum in Greensboro. Jones’ other initiatives as a legislator have included backing legislation to promote stem-cell research in North Carolina and health care for underserved populations and co-sponsoring bills for local concerns such as the High Point Market and the proposed John Coltrane music hall. Jones said he isn’t worried about an anti-incumbent backlash, since he sees that as more of a development in Republican races than Democratic ones. “The tea party attitude is pretty much nonexistent in a district like mine. It’s more a pro-Obama constituent makeup. My constituents have hope for


The 60th State House District covers parts of High Point, Greensboro and sections of southern Guilford County. The district has 61 percent registered Democratic voters, 24 percent registered Republican voters and 15 percent unaffiliated voters. Incumbent Democrat Earl Jones, who has served since winning the seat in 2002, and Democratic challenger Marcus Brandon are vying in the primary Tuesday. The winner will take on Republican challenger Lonnie Wilson in the Nov. 2 general election. the future because of the leadership they have in the state House and with the election of Obama,” Jones said. | 888-3528

Brandon tests Jones in state House GUILFORD COUNTY – Democratic challenger Marcus Brandon is hoping to tap into the sentiment against incumbents to pull off an upset in the 60th State House District primary, while veteran Rep. Earl Jones is relying on his long years of service to propel him to the general election this fall. Brandon, making his first bid for public office, and Jones, a four-term representative and former Greensboro City Councilman, will square off in the Democratic primary Tuesday. The race has been apparent to motorists traveling parts of High Point in the contrast between the brown-andyellow campaign signs for Brandon and the blue-andwhite signs for Jones. Brandon launched his campaign a year ago because he realizes that he needs a street-level, retail politics approach to take on an incumbent with name recognition.

THOMASVILLE – Colfax’s Randy Everett recruited several of his chain-saw carving friends from throughout the country to participate in a competition that debuted Thursday in Thomasville. “I paid them,” Everett joked of how he enticed his fellow competitors to join him at the event. “I gave them all moonshine.” All joking aside, Everett, who assisted Thomasville Tourism with promoting the event, and nine other carvers were busy Thursday morning as a steady stream of people made their way through downtown Thomasville’s clock tower parking lot to see their work. The Thomasville Tourism ECHO Power Equipment Company Chainsaw Sculpting Invitational will be held through Saturday. “We are going to carve anywhere from around five to seven pieces,” Everett said, adding that “everybody has already done one.” Once finished, the works will go up for auction on Saturday to raise money

Thomasville police officer shoots, kills pit bull BY DARRICK IGNASIAK ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

THOMASVILLE – A Thomasville resident says she and her neighbors are upset after police shot and killed her pit bull on Tuesday night. Jessica Rumley, of 507 Roosevelt Road, said her 6-month-old pit bull was shot by an officer multiple times around 8 p.m. after the dog got loose while she was at work. She said it was the first time that her pit bull had ever got loose. “We’ve never gotten a warning or reports on our dog,” she said. A Thomasville police investigation into the shooting by Capt. Loren Wesley, who could not be reached for comment Thursday, determined the officer followed policy and procedure, said Maj. James Mills. An officer is entitled to “put the animal down” if he or

she or a third party comes under attack, Mills said. “The dog was chasing the officer and closing the distance, and he was deemed vicious,” Mills said. “The officer took action to neutralize the dog.” Rumley claims the pit bull was shot five times, but Mills said he didn’t know how many times the dog was shot. She also said the dog didn’t have a history of aggressiveness. Rumley also claims that one of her neighbors is upset about the way police handled the pit bull. Rumley was issued a citation for allowing her dog to run loose, she said. “The neighbors across the street that saw everything, they thought it was outrageous and disgusting what this cop did,” Rumley said. “He shot the dog one time. As the dog was running off into the woods,

he shot him four times. This is a 25-pound puppy.” Scott Reed, who lives across the street from Rumley, said the dog never rushed the cop. He also said the dog was loose, but wasn’t bothering anybody. “The dog didn’t do anything to have him killed that way,” he said. Mills said animal control officers are off the clock at 5 p.m. After that, officers handle the calls involving animals. “When anybody’s dog attacks anyone, anyone has a right to defend themselves,” Mills said. Rumley said she hopes to get a civil attorney. “The cops shouldn’t have came if they didn’t know how to handle dogs without shooting them,” she said. | 888-3657

Report: Man with gun critical of Obama on Facebook COSHOCTON, Ohio (AP) – A man arrested at a North Carolina airport who authorities say was armed and wanted to see President Barack Obama had questioned the president’s citizenship, a newspaper reported Thursday. Facebook postings apparently made last year by Joseph Sean McVey, 23, also refer to Obama by his middle name, Hussein, according to the Coshocton Tribune. The newspaper said a source

with access to McVey’s Facebook profile provided copies of screen shots. McVey had a handgun at his side when he caught the attention of officers in an Asheville Regional Airport parking lot Sunday just after the president departed aboard Air Force One, police said. His car was loaded with police gear, including a siren and lights, and had a note with formulas used for firing a rifle with a scope, authorities said. Asheville Regional

Airport Police Chief Jeff Augram said he is aware of the Facebook postings and that authorities are doing an exhaustive background check on McVey. James Mills, an Asheville attorney representing McVey, said he had no comment. McVey’s mother lives in Asheville. He lives in Coshocton, about 60 miles east of Columbus, where he has been a member of a volunteer organization that assists police and fire crews at emergency

scenes. McVey’s Facebook page on Thursday displayed little more than his name and high school to users other than his approved friends. A public comment from McVey could be found elsewhere on the site, on a page apparently set up by friends titled “Justice for Joseph ’Sean’ McVey.� “Thank you for your generous support, everyone,� McVey wrote in a posting left early Wednesday.

In an 11-page report about the autopsy examination, the medical examiner reported that Taft’s sister, Dina Holton, last spoke to Taft when she put her to bed that evening. Holton checked on Taft in the early morning, according to the report, and could hear her breathing but did not turn on the light. Some time between 7:30 a.m. and 8 a.m. on March 6, according to the report, Holton checked on Taft again and found her “unresponsive, with obvious bleeding from the head. The bed sheets and her garments were in disarray, according to the report.

RALEIGH – Kathy Taft, the state school board member found fatally injured last month, was struck multiple times in the head by a heavy blunt object, according to a state medical examiner’s report released Thursday. Taft , 62 of Greenville, was found fatally injured on March 6 in the home of a friend. She had undergone a facelift the day before, according to the autopsy report. Medical examiners listed the instrument of the blunt-force trauma as unknown.

n most cases, a primary election determines the candidates who will face each other in the general election. That isn’t the case in the District 2 primary for Guilford County commissioner this year. With no Democrat running in District 2, the primary will decide who wins the vacant seat created when veteran Republican Commissioner Steve Arnold announced his retirement, after 20 years in office, earlier this year. The District 2 Republican candidates are Bill Bencini, a manufacturers representative who has served as a High Point City Council member since 1999, and Myrene Stanley, an orthodontic laboratory technician and first-time political candidate with a passion for helping people. Bencini, who has been chairman of High Point City Council’s Planning and Development Committee and a member of the Finance Committee and who counts City Project board member, High Point Market Authority liaison, Piedmont Triad Council of Governments executive board member and Piedmont Authority for Regional Transportation board member among his community involvement activities, believes he can provide more vigorous representation for High Point, especially in land-use planning. He also intends to push for more cooperation between commissioners and the city governments in Guilford County. Bencini, who vows to try to convince other commissioners of the true impact of the High Point Market on Guilford County, says he always will try to do the right thing when making tough decisions on discretionary spending. Stanley says she is “tired of politics as usual” and, while she admits she can’t bring the same type of experience to the job that Bencini does, she insists she will provide “a different dynamic ... new blood, a fresh face ... to represent, and be an advocate for, the little people.” A former president of the High Point Republican Women’s Club and a volunteer with The Salvation Army, Stanley says she has “been in a service mode since serving in the military,” and has strong conservative views on less government and low taxes, has “a passion for property rights” and takes a common sense approach to finding solutions to issues. Stanley has made a good impression during her first run for public office, but readily admits she doesn’t have a solid understanding of several major issues. Bencini’s experience and stronger knowledge of the issues with which a county commissioner will have to deal during the next few years gives him the edge in this race.

We need scorecard to keep up with the loose nukes


resident Obama turned from the domestic third-rail issue of health care to the international radioactive subject of dirty-bomb terrorism by hosting a nuclear summit in D.C., convincing the leaders of 47 countries to attend – presidents and prime ministers and kings and queens and a couple of expendable pawns. No bishops, they have their own problems these days. Pretty much all the cogs in the atomic machine showed up except North Korea and Iran, which admittedly is like holding a steroids conference without Barry Bonds or Mark McGwire, but hey, it’s a START. The focus was on security, an encouraging sign, since the global stockpile of bomb-making materials is now large enough for 120,000 suitcase nukes. Which most experts agree is about 120,000 too many. It wasn’t a total Potemkin summit. Everyone agreed that terrorism is bad and nuclear terrorism is real bad, and working with one another is good and they should all meet again in South Korea in 2012 if the Mayans aren’t right. Took 60 years to assemble this pile of mutually assured destruction. Going to take at least a couple of meetings to get rid of it. Only nine members in the nuclear club right now. But a lot of wannabees. And since you can’t tell your nuclear players without a Nuclear Players Scorecard, here they are, with official Threat Level grading:

Man stabs 28 kids at kindergarten in China


A child who was attacked at the Zhongxin Kindergarten is transferred into a hospital ward after a surgical treatment in Taixing in east China’s Jiangsu Province, Thursday. A knife-wielding man attacked the kindergarten class of 4-yearolds, slashing over two dozen children.

UK police: We had July 7 bomber’s fingerprints LONDON – British police acknowledged Thursday that they had long held the fingerprints of one of the Islamist suicide bombers who blew themselves up in the July 7, 2005 attacks on London’s transit network. Scotland Yard said it had previously requested fingerprint information on Mohammad Sidique Khan only to be told by local police that there were none on file. But when police rechecked their archives last month they turned up two sets fingerprints for Sidique Khan, one dating to 1986, when he was just 11.

UN pays out $590M from Iraqi oil fund GENEVA – A U.N. panel has approved $590 million in compensation payments for victims of Iraq’s 1990 invasion of Kuwait. The U.N. Compensation Commission says the money will go to five companies and four government or international bodies. It did not disclose the identities of the claimants Thursday but said all are in Kuwait. The panel, made up of the 15 U.N. Security Council member countries, has so far paid out almost $29.5 billion. Another $22.9 billion is earmarked to go to unidentified claimants in Kuwait.

Saddam’s loyalists in Syria blast America DAMASCUS – Supporters of Iraq’s late dictator Saddam Hussein gathered in Damascus Thursday to denounce the U.S. “occupation� of Iraq and demand that his loyalists unite. About 500 Saddam loyalists, including members of his outlawed Baath Party, vowed to continue their support to what they called “Iraqi national resistance,� a term they widely use to describe Iraqi insurgents attacking only U.S. forces.

8 killed in Baghdad car bomb near liquor stores BAGHDAD – Iraqi medical and police officials say eight people were killed when a car bomb exploded near a pair of liquor stores in southwest Baghdad. The blast also injured 20 people, according to a medical official at Yarmouk Hospital. Both the police and medical officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak with the media. While there has been a decline of violence in past years, low level attacks do continue across Iraq and especially in the capital Baghdad.

Brown seeks redemption Embarrassing campaign gaffe has UK prime minister on defensive BIRMINGHAM, England (AP) – British Prime Minister Gordon Brown went for broke in the final TV debate on the economy Thursday, drawing on his vast treasury experience and banking on a political miracle after an embarrassing campaign gaffe. Slumped in the polls, Brown wasted no time in his last-ditch performance before the May 6 election – using his opening remarks to neutralize Wednesday’s gaffe with a smart quip. Brown had forgotten

to turn off his microphone Wednesday after a Labour voter asked about Brown an influx of Eastern European immigrants. After the conversation ended, Brown was heard muttering “bigoted woman� and blaming aides. “There is a lot to this job, and as you saw yesterday – I don’t get all of it right,� Brown said, referring to

Baghdad vote recount to take about 2-3 weeks BAGHDAD (AP) – Iraq’s election officials said Thursday that a recount of the Baghdad ballots could take up to three weeks as a car bomb killed eight people in the capital, highlighting again the tenuous security situation while the chaos arising from the March 7 parliamentary vote drags on.

The timeline – possibly even longer than it took to count the whole country’s ballots after the March 7 election – means another delay for an election process. The voting process has already dragged on for weeks, and it threatens to undermine the country’s fragile stability.

Pakistan Taliban chief said to survive US attack ISLAMABAD – Pakistan and U.S. intelligence wrongly reported the death of the head of the Pakistani Taliban in a CIA drone strike and the brash, ruthless commander is now believed to be alive, Pakistani spies said Thursday in an apparent propaganda coup for the insurgents. The reports that Hakimullah Mehsud survived the January missile attack in an area close to the Afghan border will raise questions about the quality of the intelligence being gathered in the region.

‘’Happy Mother’s Day’’


Workers load oil booms onto a crew boat to assist in the containment of oil Thursday.

Louisiana governor issues order as oil spill threatens coastal ecosystem; Obama offers all resources Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal declared a state of emergency Thursday as the large oil spill off the coast threatens the fragile coastal ecosystem. Meanwhile, President Barack Obama says his administration will use “every single available resource at our disposal” to respond to the massive spill expected to reach the Gulf coastline within a day. Obama said Thursday the response could include the Defense Department. He said the oil company BP PLC ultimately will pay the cost of the cleanup. BP operated the offshore rig that was exploded and sank last week. Obama said he has called the governors of the five Gulf Coast states.

And he has dispatched top Homeland Security, Interior and Environmental Protection Agency officials to the region. The Navy sent equipment to help with cleanup of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill. Navy spokesman Lt. Myers Vasquez said Thursday that 66,000 feet of inflatable boom and seven skimming systems were on their way to the Navy base in Gulfport, Miss. The help is being provided under an existing pollution cleanup agreement between the Navy and Coast Guard. The Pensacola Naval Air Station in Florida is in use as a staging area for more booms, recovery barges, tractor trailers, pumps and other related equipment used by Coast Guard contractors, Vasquez said.

Luncheon honors police




HIGH POINT – For one High Point pastor and his church, Thursday was about putting spiritual principles into practice. Pastor Ronald L. Diggs and Word of Life Tabernacle sponsored and hosted an appreciation luncheon for the High Point Police Department. The buffet-style meal at the Woman’s Club of High Point drew members of the department’s command staff, patrol officers and supervisors, detectives, civilian employees and others who got a chance to experience what was, for many, an unexpected gesture of gratitude. “I’ve worked here about eight years, and I’ve never heard of anything like this before,” said Officer Jeff Boyd. “For people to go out of their way to show you this type of appreciation, it’s something that makes you feel very honored. They didn’t have to do this.” Diggs said he got the idea for the luncheon, in part, based on inspiration from the Scriptures about honoring civil authorities. He added that the death of Winston-Salem Police Sgt. Mickey Hutchens in the line of duty last year also helped convince him of the need to find a way to thank those who serve and protect. “It shouldn’t take that type of devastation to make us aware that they are putting their lives on the line on a daily basis,” said Diggs, whose church is on Deep River Road. “It was something that was thought out in prayer. I think it’s going to not only increase their morale but also let them know they’re appreciated.” He said he also wanted to counter the “good cop, bad cop Hollywood” image sometimes associated with police. “These are men and women of integrity who are protecting the city, protecting our children and our families,” Diggs said. The church gave each member of the department in attendance a prayer coin inscribed with a message for their protection and safety. “When people you didn’t know do something like this purely to show their appreciation, it means a lot to everyone here,” said police Chief Jim Fealy. The setting for Thursday’s gathering was in the heart of the corridor of the tornado that ripped through the city a month ago. The Woman’s Club was spared, but dozens of surrounding homes were heavily damaged. “I think anytime you have a major event like that, it brings the community together,” said Lt. Jay Yandle. | 888-3531

Second annual Battle of the Books begins today BY DARRICK IGNASIAK ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

ARCHDALE – A day before competing in the second annual Randolph County Schools Elementary Battle of the Books, Brodie Holden said he was confident of the possibility that Archdale Elementary could win the event. “I usually read loads of books, so it’s easy for me to remember,” said Holden, a fifth-grade student. “I’m pretty confident. I think we can win this.” Holden is one of seven Archdale Elementary students who will compete in Battle of the Books, which scheduled for today at Randolph Community College. The other students on the team are Brianna Frazier. Mykaylah Klumb, Keaton Kirkpatrick, Alex Figgatt, Cierra


Eight schools, including Archdale Elementary, will compete in today’s Randolph County Schools Elementary Battle of the Books. The competition will start at 9 a.m. at the Randolph Community College Auditorium DiPilato and Sarah Sprouse. Chris Beeson, Archdale Elementary’s media specialist, said members of the school’s team were chosen out of 17 students. Each student was required to read 12 books that the youngsters will be quizzed on today. “They are required to read 12 books in addition to whatever they do in the classroom,” Beeson said. “That’s a lot of extra

reading we’re asking these kids to do.” Sally Voelkert, one of the team’s coaches, said the Archdale Elementary team has been practicing every other Thursday since December. Archdale Elementary will be competing in the Battle of the Books for the first time, Beeson said. Farmer Elementary won the system’s first competition last year. Aside from Archdale and Farmer, other elementary schools competing in the book battle include Franklinville, Grays Chapel, Ramseur Elementary, Randleman Elementary, Southmont Elementary and Tabernacle Elementary. “We would like to finish at the top, but anything is better than the very bottom,” Beeson said. | 888-3657

Guilford school official named Durham’s superintendent ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

GUILFORD COUNTY – Eric J. Becoats, Guilford County school district chief administrative officer, has been named superintendent of Durham Public Schools effective July 1. Becoats, 43, joined Guilford County Schools in 2005. He shared interim superintendent duties with Chief Finance Officer Sharon Ozment for four months after former superintendent Terry Grier left the post for the top job with the San Diego Unified School District. “Durham has such a wonderful and well-deserved reputation for being strongly committed to public education. That

is what attracted me to this role,” Becoats said in a statement. “I Becoats will spend the next several months listening, observing and learning about what is important to this district, its teachers, parents and supportive community.” Becoats succeeds Carl Harris, who resigned in December after three years as superintendent to become deputy assistant secretary with the U.S. Department of Education. “He has done a great job for Guilford County Schools, and we wish him well as he assumes

this new leadership position,” Superintendent Mo Green and school board Chairman Alan Duncan said in a joint statement. Since 2008, Becoats has supervised technology services, instructional technology, strategic planning, human resources, and accountability and research. District leaders gave Becoats credit for developing and executing the district’s first strategic plan and other major initiatives. “So, while we will miss him greatly, we’re excited about what he will accomplish in Durham as superintendent. This is the next logical step, and he deserves




the opportunity,” Duncan and Green said in the joint statement. Becoats was a finalist two years ago for the St. Louis school system’s top spot. He left the Charlotte-Mecklenburg district in 2004 after he was accused of using district resources for his private work as an educational consultant. When he was questioned about his departure from the CharlotteMecklenburg system during the search, Becoats called it a “onetime occurrence” and said he had closed his consulting business. The Durham Herald Sun contributed to this report.

With his positive personality and passion to help anyone in need he made lots of friends. He was brought up in a Christian family, his father was preacher and he always believed in Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. Given the chance to come over to the United States his relationship with God became more personel. A few weeks before he met his Creator, he started to feel some discomforts which caused him to seek medical attention. He was diagnosed with Waldenstom’s Macroglobulinemia, a very rare king of blood cancer. Inspite of the diagnosis he remained calm because finally there were answers to his concerns. Family and friends were deeply worried but he was the one comforting them, saying “God is still in total control” and found himself rejoicing because God always kept him within his loving arms. His only wish was that he not feel or suffer any pain. He had found so much favor in his Great God , he prayed his final prayer and was called to his eternal home peacefully. He had held on to these verses during his last days. . ..Moreover let us exult and triumph in our troubles and rejoice in our sufferings knowing that pressure and affliction and hardship produce patient and unswerving endurance.

Nicki is entitled to her feelings, but she has no right to punish you for a decision that was arrived at by both you and her sister. And the person to make that crystal clear to Nicki is Cheryl, not you, so stop apologizing. The decision to terminate a pregnancy is an extremely sensitive one and never one that

HIGH POINT – John Wesley College officials will inaugurate Larry D. McCullough as the college’s 10th president at 2:30 p.m. Sunday at Wesleyan Christian Academy. McCullough’s selection in February followed an extensive, yearlong national search following the retirement of Brian Donley in June 2008. The Rev.

RALEIGH (AP) – Unusually dry weather has returned to portions of central and southeastern North Carolina, which has experts on the lookout for possible drought conditions. A lack of significant rain has created what’s known as abnormally dry conditions in 26 counties stretching from Wilmington to parts of the Triangle and Triad. That’s the first time since early December that any part of North Carolina has experienced dry conditions. That doesn’t mean there’s a drought yet, but the state’s Drought Management Advisory Council is meeting weekly to keep an eye on the situation. The state Department of Environment and Natural Resources says the rest of North Carolina is normal for this time of year.

I have tried reaching out to Nicki to explain the reasons for our decision, but it has fallen on deaf ears. Should I continue asking her for forgiveness, or have I done enough already?

Man says he hates himself for killing teens SAN DIEGO â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A man who pleaded guilty to raping and murdering two San Diego area teenage girls says he hates himself for what he did. John Gardner said in an interview aired Thursday on KFMB that he was aware of what he was doing but could not stop himself.

Asked by his interviewer if there are other victims, Gardner laughs and says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Good try.â&#x20AC;?


People console one another outside Nebo Baptist Church in Nebo, Ky., Thursday, after being informed that both miners trapped when a roof collapsed in the Webster County Coal Dotiki Mine No. 4 were found dead. The accident took place in the underground mine Wednesday.

Wyoming governor tried to nix Ayersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; visit

Kentucky mine had roof support problems

LARAMIE, Wyo. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A stack of e-mails released this week show Gov. Dave Freudenthal was among those who had supported canceling a talk by William Ayers at the University of Wyoming. In response to a records request by The Associated Press, the university released the e-mails. Boswell said in one e-mail before the April 5 speech was canceled that Freudenthal would â&#x20AC;&#x153;strongly support the UW administration pulling the plug on Ayers, but recognizes that may not be possible.â&#x20AC;?

PROVIDENCE, Ky. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The underground coal mine where two workers were killed in a roof collapse has been cited at least six times this year for using too few supporting bolts in the roof, state records show. The rock fall that killed the men happened late Wednesday about four miles inside the Dotiki Mine and instability in the roof hampered rescue efforts,


Lawsuits target Arizona immigration measure PHOENIX (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Anger mounted Thursday over an Arizona measure cracking down on illegal immigration as a police officer sued to challenge it, governors in Texas and Colorado weighed in to oppose such a law in their own states, and activists in Chicago chanted for a boycott outside an Arizona Diamondbacks game. The lawsuit from 15-year Tucson police veteran Martin Escobar was one of two

filed Thursday, less than a week after Republican Gov. Jan Brewer signed the bill that critics claim is unconstitutional and fear will lead to racial profiling.

mining officials said Thursday. Rescuers were â&#x20AC;&#x153;within an armâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lengthâ&#x20AC;? of the body of a miner trapped under rock when the roof became unstable and they had to retreat, said Gov. Steve Beshear, who traveled to the mine and met with families of the victims. â&#x20AC;&#x153;About that time, the roof started moving again,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rocks started falling again.

And they had to pull back.â&#x20AC;? Beshear identified the two men who died as Justin Travis, 27, and Michael Carter, 28. Family members had gathered at the nearby Nebo Baptist Church awaiting news. One woman had to be taken from the church by stretcher into an ambulance when word of the second death came Thursday afternoon.

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Obama administration Thursday warned Iran and Syria that Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commitment to Israelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s security is unshakable and that they should understand the consequences of threats to the Jewish state. In a speech, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Syrian transfers of increasingly Clinton sophisticated weaponry including rockets to militants in southern Lebanon and Gaza could spark new conflict in the Middle East. And she said a nuclear-armed Iran would profoundly destabilize the region. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These threats to Israelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s security are real, they are growing and they must be addressed,â&#x20AC;? she said in the speech to the American Jewish Committee. The speech was the administrationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest effort to reassure Israel that its ties to the United States remain strong despite tensions that flared last month. Clinton told the group that Israel is â&#x20AC;&#x153;confronting some of the toughest challenges in her history,â&#x20AC;? particularly from Iran, Syria and groups they support like Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in the Gaza Strip.



Kidney treatment, failure and kidney donation


ear Dr. Donohue: Will you answer some questions about kidney problems in a 50-year-old male who has mild diabetes and high blood pressure? He just lost 30 pounds of fluid that caused severe breathing problems. His breathing problem subsided. His doctors struggle to lower his blood pressure. His doctors want him to think about dialysis. If you start, do you ever get off it? How is the family checked for a match if a kidney transplant is needed? I am his older sister. He also has an older brother and a younger half-brother. I am so worried about him. – J.F.



Your brother has chronic kidney failure. The kidneys are our filtration stations, cleaning the blood of waste materials and excess fluid. A test called creatinine clearance gives a reliable estimate of how well the kidneys are filtering the blood. Values above 90 ml/min (1.5 ml/s) indicate normal function. When the clearance falls to between 30 and 59 (0.5 and 0.98), that person has a moderate decrease in kidney function. Anything lower is severe, and that’s the stage when dialysis or kidney transplant is considered. Your brother’s fluid retention with the resulting breathing trouble is a reflection of his kidney malfunction. High blood pressure














can cause kidney damage, and it also can result from kidney damage. HEALTH Medicines for improvDr. Paul ing his Donohue blood pres■■■ sure are many, and his doctors will find the right one for him eventually. He might need a combination of blood pressure drugs. Diabetes also is involved in kidney injury. If dialysis or transplant is suggested, your brother ought to jump at the offer. Dialysis is usually for life, unless the patient obtains a kidney transplant. Family members often are the best candidates for organ donation. Potential donors are tested for their closeness to the recipient’s genetic makeup. Being of the same blood type and having a close match to HLA antigens indicate better chances for the transplanted kidney not being rejected. HLA antigens are a group of proteins on a person’s cells. Improvements in medicines that control rejection have allowed for greater latitude in accepting organs for transplants. Your brother is lucky to have a sister like you. Dear Dr. Donohue: Several months ago I wrote to you asking about a disease called

Binswanger’s disease. My sister died of this disease, and I would like to learn more about it. – M.M. Binswanger’s disease belongs to the family of conditions that cause dementia. Dementia is a decline in mental function. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common dementing illness. The cause of Binswanger’s is thought to result from blockages in small arteries supplying blood to the brain’s white matter. White matter consists of interconnecting cables that allow brain areas to communicate with each other. In its early stages, Binswanger’s has few noticeable signs or symptoms, and its progress usually is slow. “Executive function” suffers the most in this kind of dementia. Executive function includes things like decision-making, planning, arriving at rational judgments and exhibiting appropriate behavior. Memory also is impaired, and affected people are quite confused. No medicine cures Binswanger’s disease. Medicines used for Alzheimer’s disease often are prescribed for Binswanger patients. DR. DONOHUE regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

Polanski lawyers seek sealed prosecutor testimony LOS ANGELES (AP) – Roman Polanski’s lawyers want a Los Angeles judge to unseal secret testimony by the original prosecutor in the director’s 33-year-old sex case. In a motion filed Thursday, the attorneys say

transcripts of testimony by retired Deputy District Attorney Roger Gunson are needed urgently to submit to Swiss authorities pondering whether to extradite Polanski to the United States after decades as a fugitive.

IGH POINT – High Point native Laurie Beck Hogan and her husband, Andrew, initially laughed at the notion that they might win a store franchise. Then they started thinking about the prospect and decided to give it a shot, since owning a shop was a longtime dream. They further decided they would like to open the store in High Point, at a location to aid downtown revitalization efforts. Now the Hogans are one of 10 semifinalists to win a TCBY (The Country’s Best Yogurt) shop. The public may cast votes online to put the Hogans in the top five, and TCBY will select the winner from those five. “We were at TCBY in Burlington and saw a flyer about the contest,” Laurie said. “We typically joke about having franchises of places we like, so when we saw the flyer, we wanted to find out more.” They visited the Web site and learned that contestants had to post a video on YouTube for the chance to win a TCBY franchise valued at $300,000. “We watched some videos already submitted and realized we could be just as creative and had a chance,” Laurie said. Rather than submit a traditionally filmed video, they decided to enter one in black and white and using stop-frame animation. They set up a still



To vote: View video and vote online at away/videos/nc, through May 10. The Hogans: Laurie is a 2002 graduate of Westchester Country Day School, and she received a bachelor’s degree in journalism and mass communication from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2006. She is employed by Guilford County Schools in the district relations department. Her parents are Jane and Mike Beck, a veterinarian at Emerywood Veterinary Hospital. Andrew, from Tennessee, also is a UNC-Chapel Hill graduate, and he plans to graduate from Elon University School of Law next month. camera on a tripod in their living room in Whitsett and shot approximately 600 individual photos, which they put together using a computer program. The project took approximately a week, working on-and-off in 20- to 30-minute spurts. The result is an 87-second video in which Laurie and Andrew, individually or together, hold a white board with messages explaining that High Point is called “The Furniture Capital of the World” and their reasons for wanting to establish a TCBY here.


Those reasons include creating a community gathering place and helping the local economy by creating jobs. “I’m from High Point and love it. ... We thought this could have the potential to provide good publicity for the area and let people know how great a place it is,” Laurie said. “High Point is a family-oriented place, and there are lots of good establishments, but we could use a lot more family-oriented, customer service-oriented places, and that’s the kind of place we’d like to have.” Should voters place the Hogans in the top five, Laurie and Andrew will be interviewed by TCBY officials. The Hogans have been viewing other submissions, and they believe theirs is distinctive in its style and how it’s made. If they win, they will defer to TCBY in selecting a location, and they likely will share their thoughts on where in High Point a store might be located. “We’ve been brainstorming, and I know there are groups in High Point that want to bring more to downtown and the new ‘Uptowne’ area,” Laurie said. “So it would be neat to support that in some way, as long as we can make sure (a store) is successful and there’s parking. ... “I feel like whenever anyone is in a contest from this area, people get behind them and support them.” / 888-3601

Reasons 2 Rhyme will present the second annual Freedom Slam, a national poetry slam competition, at 8 p.m. tonight in Greensboro Day School’s Sloan Theatre. The competition will feature 15 poets from across the country – including Ron Hargrove of High Point – competing for a $1,000 cash prize. The event is free and open to the public. The competition will consist of three rounds, and the final round will feature the historic “Greensboro Four” sit-in movement. Five judges will judge each poet’s onstage performance, word play and diction. “The Freedom Slam is one of Reasons 2 Rhyme’s largest events of the year,” said Josephus III, creator and host. “This event draws some of the most talented poets from across the nation to compete to showcase their talent in Greensboro.” Reasons 2 Rhyme’s next event will be the Poetry Café on May 21 at 9 p.m., at the Emerald Event Center in Greensboro.

Players who feel compelled to justify their actions should recall an old preacher’s advice to a protege: “Give a sermon your best, but if you don’t strike oil pretty quick, stop boring.” Today’s West shifted to a trump at Trick Two, and South won in dummy and led a spade: four, king, ace. He won the trump return, took the queen of spades and ruffed a spade. South next ruffed a diamond, ruffed a spade, ruffed a diamond and drew the last trump. He had won eight tricks and still had a good spade and the ace of clubs.

OPENING LEAD “How about a trump opening lead?” East asked. “I shouldn’t lead a high diamond with the A-KQ?” West growled, and he delivered a long, boring defense of his defense. West’s correct lead was a trump, which the bidding demanded. When West takes the ace of spades, he leads a second trump. South can ruff a spade in dummy but has no fast re-entry to his hand. West gets back in to lead a third trump, and South loses a second spade and goes down.



Friday, April 30, 2010 CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Kirsten Dunst, 28; Johnny Galecki, 35; Willie Nelson, 77; Cloris Leachman, 84 HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Allowing someone to meddle in your affairs will jeopardize a partnership that means a lot to you. Use your experience, knowledge and diplomacy to get to the bottom of things and to make decisions that will allow you to advance. Your relationships with the people around you are either working or they are not. It’s in your best interest to size up your situation and act accordingly. Your numbers are 4, 9, 13, 24, 27, 36, 40 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Circumstances will be very unusual regarding a financial responsibility for someone close to you. Handle any joint ventures carefully. Criticism can lead to a blowout that will be hard to reverse. ★★★★★ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Do something nice for yourself or for someone you care for. Love and romance should be high on your list. Taking a risk will not bode well with someone who loves you. Think twice before you take action. ★★★ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t harp on issues that are really not that important. You can do more damage than good if you are too vocal. Your tendency to overreact will lead others to believe that your concerns aren’t valid. Chill out. ★★★ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Put all your attributes to work for you. There is something unique that you have to offer. Don’t sell yourself short. Bring your talents to the forefront and you will recognize a way to subsidize your income. ★★★ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You’ll find it difficult to keep your thoughts to yourself, especially if someone is bothering or annoying you. Speaking out will target you for recourse you didn’t expect. A little diplomacy, coupled with your Leo charm will result in your getting your way. ★★★★★ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Travel, socializing and being with people you enjoy will stimulate you mentally, physically and emotionally. You can turn a creative idea into something that offers you great joy and a chance to work toward an important goal. ★★ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The more giving you are and the more involved you get in assisting others, the better you will feel about yourself and your future. Don’t let someone’s selfish tendency convince you that charity is a waste of time. Follow your intuition. ★★★★ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don’t waste your time arguing with someone when you know that what you are going to do isn’t going to change. Put your energy into a goal you have set or investing in a project you believe in. Follow your heart. ★★★ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Before you take flight, consider the consequences of your actions. Stability will help you far more than putting yourself on the line. Take care of your chores or expect to face criticism. ★★★ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): The less you hide, the better you will do. Expressing your concerns and your plans will put others at ease and may also get you the help you need. A partnership may be enticing but if you can go it alone, do so. ★★★ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don’t expect things to get done without a little effort on your part. Hiding information or avoiding your responsibility will set you back emotionally and financially. Finish what you start and don’t lead anyone on or commit to something you aren’t going to honor. ★★★★ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t let a jealous colleague or friend dictate what you can and cannot do. When it comes to love, double check your motives as well as the motives of the person you are with. ★★

DAILY QUESTION You hold: S A J 9 5 H 7 6 2 D A K Q C K 9 5. Your partner opens one heart, you respond one spade and he bids two clubs. What do you say? ANSWER: Since partner may have as many as 18 points, slam is possible. If he has a 12-point minimum, you would rather not go past game. Bid two diamonds, a forcing bid in a new suit. If partner bids only 2NT next, you’ll assume he lacks extra strength and settle for 3NT. Otherwise, you’ll bid slam or try for slam. South dealer Both sides vulnerable

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

High Point’s Singleton will transfer




HIGH POINT – Wanting to be a starting point guard again, David Singleton will leave High Point University at the end of this semester. Singleton, still in school and completing his sophomore year, was recruited as a point guard by former Panther coach Bart Lundy and played that position as a freshman. Under new coach Scott Cherry, he became a role player last year, mostly as a wing. He never played the point as junior college transfer Tehran Cox and freshman Jarius Sims split time at that position. Cherry and Singleton said Singleton that Singleton made the decision to transfer after they discussed his future role in a meeting after the season. “I had a meeting with the head coach and he asked if I would play point guard,” Singleton said in a statement from the school. “I said ‘yes’ and he made it clear that probably wasn’t going to happen at High Point. I had to make the choice of whether I wanted to stay or leave, and I chose to leave. I didn’t want the same role as last year. I wanted to play point guard.” Singleton, who is listed as 6-feet, 3inches and 190 pounds, said he is trying to find a school closer to his hometown of Coatesville, Pa. As a freshman, he started all 30 games, averaged 27.1 minutes, 5.9 points and 4.1 rebounds while dishing 144 assists and committing 108 turnovers. Last season, he had one start in 30 games as his minutes dropped to an average of 18.1 per game. He was sixth in scoring at 5.2 ppg, averaged 3.4 rebounds and ranked third in assists (62) and turnovers (59). With a large recruiting class coming in for next season, Cherry indicated there was a possibility that Singleton’s minutes would likely shrink again. The number of recruits grew from six to seven after Singleton decided to transfer. “I wanted to be honest with him where he stood and what his role was going to be,” Cherry said. “I am not mad at him, and I am not upset that he’s upset because he was recruited to play a different role. Unfortunately with the coaching change, the role changed and it was probably going to change even more next year. “I didn’t want a situation where he was upset in November, December, January next season and then had only one year to go somewhere else and play. I wanted him to go somewhere else and have two years left and still have a productive career.” When he found out that he would not play the point for Cherry, Singleton said he considered leaving after his freshman season. “When the new coaches came in, I was sort of iffy about whether I should leave,” Singleton said in the statement. “I decided to stay and when the season came I had to accept the role that the coaches gave me. ... I have a passion to play ball, so I made adjustments. “It is just my game didn’t fit what they are trying to do. There’s no hard feelings or anything. It’s just time to move on. I wanted to make the change so I could play point guard.” | 888-3519


From left: Stephen Marrujo, Thomas Lawler and Dominick Anile have sparked Bishop McGuinness to the NCHSAA lacrosse playoffs this season.

Reshuffling the deck breeds more success BY DANIEL KENNEDY SPECIAL TO THE ENTERPRISE

KERNERSVILLE – At this time three years ago, Bishop McGuinness coach Dom Anile had yet to begin construction of what would become the latest addition to the school’s long line of juggernaut programs. Three seasons have since passed and the Villain’s lacrosse team is now on the radar for each of North Carolina’s most formidable institutions. For Anile’s group of players, the path to success has been anything but orthodox. Last season, the Villains secured their first Triad 3A Conference title, netted their first postseason berth and reached the N.C. High School Athletic Association’s Final Four in just the second year of Anile’s tenure. Bishop has once again taken the road less traveled to reach the playoffs in 2010. A trying regular season that could have easily been defined by injuries to returning leading scorer and son of the coach Dominick Anile – who tore both his ACL and meniscus – has instead culminated in the Villains winning three of their last four to set up a tonight’s first-round matchup with Page. “I’m really impressed with the way they’ve stepped up,” Anile said. “A lot of guys are playing positions they don’t normally play and are having a tremendous amount of success. That’s why we’re in the playoffs.” A lot has changed since last season, beginning with the changes made to the lineup. Team leaders Thomas Lawler, Stephen Marrujo and Anile have all been shuffled from their primary positions last year to embrace new roles with the team.

A major advantage for Bishop this season has been the versatility of its players, as exemplified by the successful adjustment of Lawler transitioning from goalie to midfielder. “I was kind of surprised at how well I did,” Lawler admitted. “I didn’t know how it would go, but coming out (from the goal), I think I’ve done alright.” A modest confession for one of the primary reasons Bishop has been able to achieve continued success in spite of Anile’s absence. Marrujo is yet another example of how the Villains have handled adversity, as he has had to shoulder more of the scoring load. “I feel like I’ve stepped up tremendously,” he accurately assessed. “Since we lost our secondleading scorer from last year, I sort of knew I had to step up.” The enveloping theme of “stepping up” has further driven Anile to excel. Successfully navigating what should have been a 9-to-12-month rehab assignment, the sophomore has returned ahead of schedule and just in time to make his mark on a second straight postseason. “I played midfield last year but since my knee injury, I switched to (the offensive attack position),” said the younger Anile. “I had trouble starting because my knee would swell up, but now it’s holding up pretty good.” The Villains will certainly need Anile’s knee to remain healthy to complete the tall task ahead of replicating last season’s success, but if the words of their coach are any indication, this is a group that thrives on overcoming obstacles. “We’re just excited to prove little ol’ 1A Bishop McGuinness can play with those 4A schools from Greensboro.”

Van Pelt soars, Woods falters at Quail Hollow CHARLOTTE (AP) – Tiger Woods delivered a few memorable shots of his own Thursday at Quail Hollow on a pleasant day that produced birdies and eagles and plenty of excitement. He hit a tee shot

into the water on the par-3 17th that produced little reaction except to hold out his hand for another ball. He hit his next tee shot into the water and had to scramble for bogey. And he wound up with a 2-over 74 that

left him nine shots behind Bo Van Pelt (65) and ended his streak of 21 rounds at par or better. Masters champion Phil Mickelson opened with a 70. See related story on 4D.

N.C. State’s Smith tests NBA draft waters RALEIGH (AP) – N.C. State’s Tracy Smith had declared himself eligible for the NBA draft, though he hasn’t hired an agent and could return for his senior season. The 6-foot-8 forward led the Wolfpack with 16.5 points and

7.3 rebounds per game last season. The second-team all-Atlantic Coast Conference pick led the league by shooting 65 percent from the floor, helping N.C. State reach the second round of the NIT. The school says Smith might

not be able to attend any scheduled workouts because of his academic schedule. Underclassmen have until May 8 to withdraw their names and return to school as long as they haven’t hired an agent.




t my age, it’s always nice when I stumble across a statistic concerning a boyhood hero. It’s been a long time since my boyhood, after all. Running back Ricky Williams, who says this may be his last NFL season (we’ve heard that before, but that’s another story for another time), needs just 900 yards to surpass Larry Csonka as the Miami Dolphins’ alltime leading rusher. Csonka was one of my favorite players. It made me smile to realize he still held Dolphin records for career rushing yards (6,737) and rushing touchdowns (53).

I’m not sure folks today appreciate just how good Csonka was. He starred with the Dolphins from 1968-74, sparking them to three straight Super Bowl appearances from 1972-74 and back-to-back world titles in Super Bowls VII and VIII. He made five Pro Bowls and was voted MVP of Miami’s 24-7 dismantling of the Vikings in Super Bowl VIII. Csonka helped the ‘72-73 Dolphins go 17-0 for the only perfect season in NFL history. After a year in the World Football League and two years with the New York Giants, Csonka returned to the Dolphins for the 1979 season.

He rushed for 837 yards and 12 TDs to earn NFL Comeback Player of the Year that season, then retired. Csonka received the well-deserved call from the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1987. But the stats don’t tell the full story. Csonka was as tough as any fullback in league history. He was a gritty competitor and a great clutch performer. And with all due respect to Ricky Williams, I hope Csonka keeps those Dolphin career records for many years to come.



Chris Woods and Patty Dominguez took home top honors of male and female athletes of the year earlier this week at Pfeiffer. Woods, who starred at Thomasville, had another stellar year for the basketball team. The 6-foot5, 215-pound junior forward was named AllAmerica by the Division II Bulletin, first-team allregion, all-state, first-team all-conference and was the Conference Carolinas’ runnerup for player of the year honors. Former Southwest Guilford basketball standout James Crowder earned “indoor male athlete of the year” in other awards given at the banquet.

NCAA approves 68-team men’s basketball tourney INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – The road to the Final Four will have a new look next season. On Thursday, the NCAA’s board of directors approved expansion from 65 to 68 teams and endorsed a proposal to add three more opening-round games to the schedule. It’s only the second time in a quarter-century that the NCAA has increased the number of teams competing for the men’s national championship. Now it’s time to start mapping out the details, which could include putting atlarge teams in the early games. “The (men’s basketball) committee will have to study any variety of options and certainly the notion of look-

ing at options involving the last at-large teams in would be one possible option,” NCAA vice president Greg Shaheen told The Associated Press. “We would expect the committee to examine all of the options.” The decision was not a surprise. NCAA officials recommended the 68-team field last week after the public loudly complained that going to 80 or 96 teams would water down the NCAA’s marquee event, and network executives insisted they did not need more tourney games to make a profit on the next television contract. So the NCAA backed the most modest expansion, at least for now. The board

gave unanimous consent to the 68-team field with a caveat – it wants the “playin” games to have more significance. “Expanding to 68 teams gave us an opportunity to involve more teams in the championship, and in doing that, we were able to enhance the experience of the opening-round game,” Clemson president James Barker, the committee chairman, said in a statement. It’s the first time since 2001, when the NCAA added one team to the 64-team team field that it has expanded. The NCAA went from 48 to 64 teams in 1985. More teams won’t be the only change fans see next March. Thanks to the new 14-year, $10.8 bil-

lion television package with CBS and Turner Broadcasting, also announced last week, fans can choose which games they want to watch. It will be the first time every tourney game will be televised live nationally. One game will be carried by CBS, with others carried on TNT, TBS and truTV. It’s a smaller overhaul than fans expected after NCAA officials spoke extensively about the format for a 96-team field four weeks ago, but it hasn’t stopped the talk about additional expansion. The new TV deal gives the NCAA sole authority to expand again, a possibility some observers believe will happen in the near future. Don’t bet on it.

Rainout proves big break for Jeffreys BY GREER SMITH ENTERPRISE SPORTS WRITER

SHORT TRACK NOTES: Lee Jeffreys got a break when rain brought postponement of Saturday’s 200-mile Modified season-opener at Bowman Gray Stadium. Jeffreys qualified second on Friday but his car developed mechanical troubles in practice on Saturday. To avoid risking a mechanical failure, Jeffreys had made arrangements to start another car at the rear of the field before rain forced officials to delay the event to Saturday night. Officials said Wednesday that Jeffreys has indicated the car he qualified is OK and he will start beside Tim Brown on the front row.

MORE THAN ENOUGH CARS Saturday’s race attracted 29 cars, a big jump after a 2009 season in which the car count for the division was regularly under 20. The numbers have been boosted by the return of former regulars Brian Loftin, John Smith and James Sink. Loftin and Smith have been competing on the Southern Modified Tour in recent years. Sink is back after NASCAR lifted his suspension for a role in the beating of former Stadium Stock driver Maynard Peters in the pits in 2005. Other additions include Ace Speedway modified champ Brian King, Southern Modified Tour regular Bryan Dauzat, former Stadium Stock driver Greg Butch-

er and former Sportsman driver Bobby Reed, who has been out of the sport. Veteran drivers Chris Fleming and Brent Elliott were among those who failed to qualify. Others were Matt Caldwell, Butcher and Reed. In the Sportsman division, the prediction of stadium officials that more than 30 cars may show up came true when 34 came through the gates. Five were disqualified in pre-race inspection. The starting lineup was set by qualifying in which the first 14 drivers got in on speed and the remaining 10 went to those who didn’t qualify but finished in the top 20 in points last season. Track spokesman Loren Pinillis said officials have not decided what type of qualifying format they will use if more than 24 cars enter in future weeks. He said they could use last year’s format that assured the top 20 in points starting spots and had the remaining drivers fighting for four positions determined by speed.

SPARK PLUGS All of the racing in the area was rained out Saturday night. Caraway Speedway was closed to avoid conflict with Bowman Gray. Two 30-lap Sportsman races will serve as the feature at Caraway this Saturday. Also on the card are races for Late Model Super Trucks, Legends Cars, Street stock, Mini-Stock and Flathead Fords. | 888-3519

Evans wins NBA Rookie of the Year award SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) – Tyreke Evans has won hundreds of trophies in his young basketball career and many of them seem to have lost an arm, a basketball or some other piece in his mother’s care. Bonita Evans will have to wait to get the NBA Rookie of the Year trophy Evans won Thursday until some safeguards are in place in the home he is building her in Delaware. Evans capped his fabulous rookie year for the Sacramento Kings by beating out Golden State’s Stephen Curry and Milwaukee’s Brandon Jennings for the coveted award.

Evans became the fourth rookie ever to average at least 20 points, five rebounds and five assists per game, joining Oscar Robertson, Michael Jordan and LeBron James in an exclusive club. He led all rookies in scoring at 20.1 points per game, was second in assists at 5.8 per game and fifth in rebounds at 5.3. Evans was the only rookie to appear on all 123 ballots from a media panel, getting 67 firstplace votes and 491 total points. Curry was second with 43 first-place votes and 391 points, with Jennings getting 12 first-place votes and 204 points.

LeBron has strained elbow, but expected to play INDEPENDENCE, Ohio (AP) – LeBron James shot left-handed layups and short jumpers at practice Thursday, but the Cavaliers superstar is not expected to miss any of Cleveland’s playoff games because of his strained right elbow and bone bruise. James was re-examined

Wednesday night by team doctors, who took more X-rays and an MRI exam that revealed the strain and a bruised bone near the elbow. James was not wearing a padded sleeve over the elbow at practice Thursday. Cleveland opens its best-of-seven playoff series against Boston on Saturday.


Tiger Woods looks for his ball under a tree on the 14th hole during the first round of the Quail Hollow Championship at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte on Thursday. Woods carded four bogeys and a double bogey en route to a 74.

Tiger struggles to opening-round 74 CHARLOTTE (AP) – The cheering was loud and enthusiastic when Tiger Woods stepped to the tee on a chilly morning, another sign that perhaps people are more interested in his golf than what kept him away for so long. About the only thing that bothered Woods on Thursday was the few applause after his introduction. He went seven tee shots without hitting a fairway. He hit into the water

on consecutive holes, the first one leading to double bogey. And right when it looked as if he might limit the damage, Woods flew the green at No. 9 on his final hole for one last bogey. Woods wound up with a 2-over 74, ending his streak of 21 consecutive rounds at par or better dating to last September. It was his worst opening round at a regular PGA Tour event since he shot 75 at The

Players Championship three years ago. What did he plan to fix? “Not a damn thing,” Woods said. “I’m just going to go hang it up today and come out tomorrow.” Suddenly, the goal is to stick around longer than two days at Quail Hollow, where he won two years ago and has never finished worse than 11th in his four previous starts.

Gonzalez leads Spanish Open by one stroke SEVILLE, Spain (AP) – Ricardo Gonzalez set a hot early morning pace in the first round of the Open De Espana with a 7-under 65 on Thursday. Paul Waring of England was a stroke behind Gonzalez, a 40-yearold Argentine who’s achieved two of his four European Tour victories

Spain. He also has a taste for the Real Club de Golf de Seville, having won the Seville Open in 2004. Among a group of six players tied for third after rounds of 68 were Sebi Garcia of Spain, who was making his debut on the European Tour almost in defiance of golfing opin-

ion. The 28-year-old from Mallorca was born with a spinal deformity and cannot swing the club with the full freedom usually demanded by the sport at the highest level. Yet his natural talent has been evident ever since he shot a 58 on Spain’s National pro tour in 2009.

White, Kassouf return for HiToms ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

THOMASVILLE – Familiar faces Murray White IV and Daniel Kassouf will be back at Finch Field this summer for the Thomasville HiToms. A veteran of the American Legion Post 87 HiToms while he starred at Ledford High School, White has enjoyed a breakout spring during his junior year at High Point University. Hitting .337 through 44 games, White has collected eight doubles, six home runs and 33 RBIs while splitting time between third base second. “Murray showed signs of improvement toward the end of the

2009 summer and we’re thrilled that his maturation has continued at HPU,” HiToms manager Tom Dorzweiler said. “Murray’s leadership skills are just as impressive as his statistics, and his growth as a ballplayer and leader should pay tremendous dividends for our squad this summer.” Kassouf, a former North Davidson star, joined Thomasville midway through last summer and finished with a batting average of .296 with two doubles, four home runs and 13 RBIs in 23 games in the Coastal Plain League, one of the nation’s top destinations for college stars competing with wooden bats.

The first baseman hit 29 home runs for Belmont Abbey last year and is redshirting at Appalachian State this sophomore season as a transfer. “Kassouf is excited to be back on the field this summer after having to sit out the entire spring,” Dorzweiler said. “Both White and Kassouf are local products who have climbed the competitive ladder because of their hard work and determination. This commitment to improvement will set the tone for our season.” The HiToms open the 2010 campaign Wednesday, May 26, in Martinsville and play host to Forest City one night later.

JAMESTOWN – Members of Guilford Technical Community College’s four athletic teams and cheerleaders were honored Monday at a banquet sponsored by the GTCC Foundation. Most valuable player awards were the highlight of the evening in the event conducted by athletic director Phil Gaffney, who noted that this was the most successful year since athletics were introduced at the college four years ago.

Lower claims give Aetna boost INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Health insurer Aetna Inc. said Thursday its first-quarter profit grew 29 percent largely because leftover claims from the previous quarter came in lower than expected. The Hartford, Conn., managed care company reported a favorable prior-period development of $143 million in the first quarter, compared to an unfavorable development of $38 million in the first quarter of last year.

Claims hit 4-week low WASHINGTON (AP) — The number of Americans filing claims for unemployment benefits dropped for a second consecutive week, further evidence that the job market is slowly improving. The Labor Department said Thursday that initial applications for jobless benefits dropped by 11,000 to 448,000, the lowest level in four weeks. The new total was slightly higher than economists had expected. The four-week average for claims edged up slightly to 462,500, still above the level that economists believe signals sustained

improvements in the job market. Claims have been on a rollercoaster in recent weeks, posting sharp increases in the first two weeks of April and then falling for the past two weeks. Part of those swings reflected troubles that the government has in seasonally adjusting the figures around Easter which falls at different times each year. However, economists said the uneven declines in claims also reflect the fact that the labor market is still struggling to emerge from the country’s worst recession since the 1930s.

The unemployment rate has been stuck at 9.7 percent for three consecutive months. Many economists believe that the 10.1 percent jobless rate hit in October may turn out to be the peak for unemployment in this slump but they are not forecasting a rapid improvement given all the headwinds still facing the economy. The economy did add 162,000 jobs in March, the largest increase in three years. Sal Guatieri, senior economist at BMO Capital Markets, said the new claims report showed that

“U.S. labor markets continue to heal, slowly.” Guatieri predicted that payrolls should show a moderate gain in April. The consensus view of economists surveyed by Thomson Reuters is that payroll jobs increased by 175,000 in April while the unemployment rate will remain stuck at 9.7 percent. The Labor Department will release the April jobless report on May 7. Many analysts believe that the four-week moving average needs to fall below 425,000 to signal sustained job growth. Applications for jobless benefits peaked during

Lexus SUV sales resume

NEW YORK (AP) — Viacom Inc.’s cable TV channels won more viewers and took in more advertising revenue in the first quarter, boosting the company’s net profit 38 percent. The New York media conglomerate also benefited from cost cutting. Even so, the results released Thursday offer another sign that businesses are putting more money into winning consumers’ attention again. Media of all kinds suffered last year as companies slashed ad spending.

Bristol-Myers sees rise in sales, profit TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Drugmaker BristolMyers Squibb Co. on Thursday reported double-digit jumps in first-quarter sales and profit, beating Wall Street expectations, but it lowered its 2010 profit forecast by a nickel due to the impact of the health care overhaul. Still, its shares jumped on the results. The maker of blockbuster blood thinner Plavix posted a very healthy improvement in first-quarter profit, which jumped 16.5 percent to $743 million, or 43 cents per share, from $638 million or 32 cents per share, in the first quarter of 2009.

Oil rises on strong economic reports NEW YORK (AP) — Fresh reports indicating the U.S. economy is getting stronger boosted oil prices above $85 a barrel Thursday. Benchmark crude for June delivery rose $1.85 to $85.07 in early afternoon trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Both oil and retail gasoline rose for a second day despite increasing crude inventories.


the recession at 651,000 in March 2009. The number of people continuing to claims benefits fell by 18,000 to 4.65 million. That figure lags the initial claims by one week. It doesn’t include millions of people who have used up the regular 26 weeks of benefits typically provided by states and are receiving extended benefits of up to 73 additional weeks paid by the federal government. About 5.4 million people were receiving extended benefits for the week ending April 10, the latest data available.

Time Warner Cable profit rises PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Time Warner Cable Inc., the nation’s second largest cable TV company, said Thursday that first-quarter earnings rose by about 30 percent as it added more Internet, phone and digital cable TV customers. The company also had a more than 19 percent increase in revenue from advertising in a wide range of categories, most signifi-

cantly automotive. It also charged higher prices for its cable TV service. “We’re off to a great start for 2010. It’s been quite a few quarters since we’ve been able to deliver such positive news,” said Chief Executive Glenn Britt in a conference call with analysts. Like Comcast Corp., which reported a 12 percent increase in firstquarter earnings on

Wednesday, Time Warner Cable is starting to see an upturn in the economy as consumers become more comfortable spending on nonessentials such as entertainment. On a conference call with analysts, the company expressed confidence that it will meet or exceed its earnings expectations for the year. Time Warner Cable earned $214 million, or

60 cents per share, in the first quarter. That compares with a profit of $164 million, or 48 cents per share, in the same quarter a year earlier. Revenue rose more than 5 percent to $4.6 billion from $4.36 billion. Analysts surveyed by Thomson Reuters expected revenue of $4.56 billion and earnings of 74 cents per share.

Jobs: Adobe Flash unfit for iPhone NEW YORK (AP) — Apple CEO Steve Jobs is going on the offensive against Adobe’s Flash technology. He says it has too many bugs, drains batteries too quickly and is too oriented to personal computers to work on the iPhone and iPad. In a statement Thursday, Jobs laid out his reasons for excluding Flash

— the most popular vehicle for videos and games on the Internet — from Apple’s blockbuster handheld devices. He cited “reliability, security and performance,” and the fact that Flash was designed “for PCs using mice, not for touch screens using fingers” as some of the reasons Apple will continue

to keep the program off its devices. But he said the most important reason for excluding Flash is that it puts a third party between Apple and software developers. That means developers can take advantage of improvements from Apple only if Adobe upgrades its own software, Jobs wrote. Apple has been criti-

cized for the omission of Flash, which limits what the iPhone can do because some games and videos require Flash. But in his rebuttal, Jobs said that with an abundance of media outlets offering their content on iPhones and iPads, “Flash is no longer necessary to watch video or consume any kind of Web content.”

WASHINGTON (AP) — Toyota says it has resumed sales of the 2010 Lexus GX 460 and the software fix to repair the vehicle stability control system is now available at dealerships. Toyota recalled nearly 10,000 Lexus SUVs last week because of possible rollover dangers. The announcement Thursday came after Consumer Reports issued a rare “Don’t Buy” rating over concerns the vehicle could flip in tight turns. Lexus Group Vice President Mark Templin says dealers began contacting owners Wednesday to schedule the software update. He says the automaker is confident the changes will make the performance of the GX better for customers.

S&P raises Ford outlook DETROIT (AP) — Standard and Poor’s is upgrading its outlook on Ford Motor Co., citing the automaker’s first-quarter profit. S&P says it changed its outlook to positive from stable. It is affirming its corporate debt ratings for Ford and says there is a chance it will raise those ratings during the next year. S&P says Ford’s prospects for sustained profitability have improved. Ford has substantial cash and has had better than expected earnings for the last few quarters. It also says there are signs of improved perception of Ford vehicles among consumers.

Drugmaker to pay $22 million settlement BOSTON (AP) — Federal prosecutors say a pharmaceutical company has agreed to pay $22 million to settle allegations that it claimed federal reimbursement for medications that it was not eligible to collect. Prosecutors announced

that Schwarz Pharma Inc., now a subsidiary UCB SA of Belgium, allegedly submitted false reports to the U.S. government related to the drugs Deponit and Hyoscyamine Sulfate ER. The government alleges that Schwarz misrepresented

the regulatory status of both drugs and failed to advise that the drugs did not qualify for coverage under federal health care programs. Neither medication ever received full regulatory approval for safety and effectiveness.

European stocks rise as debt fears ease LONDON (AP) — European stock markets rose Thursday as investors hoped for a quicker — and perhaps bigger — bailout for debt-ridden Greece and after a fairly upbeat assessment of the U.S. economy by the Federal Reserve. In Europe, the FTSE 100 index of leading British shares closed up 31.23 points, or 0.6 percent, at 5,617.84 while Germany’s DAX rose 60.57 points, or 1 percent, to 6,144.91. The CAC-40 in France ended 53.62 points, or 1.4 percent, higher at 3,840.62.

Deal on Greece bailout nears BRUSSELS (AP) — European and German officials assured markets they were working quickly on approving a bailout for Greece as they try to keep the country’s debt crisis from dragging others into a continent-wide financial meltdown. European Union monetary affairs commissioner Olli Rehn said Thursday he was “confident the talks will be concluded in the next days.” He said negotiators from the EU, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary fund were “working day and night” to finish details of a bailout that would avoid a wider crisis and “safeguard the financial stability in Europe and

globally.” Rehn’s appearance at the European Commission’s daily news briefing was scheduled at the last minute and appeared to be designed to reassure financial markets that the money will come through and a Greek government debt default was not on the cards. Markets have been in turmoil over the last few days as the seemingly never-ending Greek crisis threatened to drag other countries like Portugal and Spain into the mire. “Rehn’s appearance means that we expect this deal to be wrapped on the weekend,” said an EU official who asked not to be named.

Greek official vows deeper defense cuts ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Greece’s defense minister on Thursday promised “colossal” cuts in military operating costs to help the debt-ridden country emerge from its financial crisis and speed up plans to modernize the armed forces. Defense Minister Evangelos Venizelos Greece is aiming to slash operating costs by up to 25 percent in 2010 from 2009, instead of the planned reduction of 12.6 percent listed in this year’s budget. “That is a colossal amount, reaching the margin of our operating needs,” Venizelos said,

insisting that the cuts were not a direct result of the Greek debt crisis, nor would affect the strategic balance with historic rival Turkey. Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan is to visit Athens next month. Greece remains at odds with neighbor and NATO ally Turkey over the divided island of Cyprus and boundaries in the Aegean Sea but has improved ties over the past decade. Venizelos did not give details of how the cuts would be achieved, saying only that results of a major armed forces review would be outlined in “several weeks.”

Stocks climb on earnings NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks surged higher after another series of upbeat earnings reports and a reading on unemployment provided more evidence of an improving economy. The Dow Jones industrials rose 122 points Thursday after the Labor Department said initial claims for unemployment benefits fell last week. And companies including Motorola, Time Warner Cable and Starwood Hotels & Resorts reported earnings that topped analysts’ forecasts. It was the market’s second straight winning day after a plunge Tuesday that took the Dow down 213. Greece’s debt problems, one of the triggers for that slide, appeared less dire Wednesday and Thursday, and that allowed investors to focus on the growing signs of healing in the U.S. The Labor Department said first-time claims dipped to 448,000, slightly above analysts’ forecast of 445,000, according to Thomson Reuters. It was the second weekly drop and lifted hopes that layoffs are slowing. The Dow rose 122.05, or 1.1 percent, to 11,167.32, bringing its two-day advance to 175.33. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 15.42, or 1.3 percent, to 1,206.78, while the Nasdaq composite index rose 40.19, or 1.6 percent, to 2,511.92. European stock markets rose Thursday after two days of steep declines.

Executive faces more tomato price-fixing charges SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – Federal authorities investigating an alleged tomato price-fixing plot involving some of the nation’s biggest food chains broadened their case against the former owner of a California company Thursday with five more felony counts. The new charges, which add to seven counts pending from an earlier indict-

ment, allege that Frederick Scott Salyer violated antitrust laws by fixing prices or rigging bids for the sale of tomato products to McCain Foods USA Inc., Conagra Foods Inc. and Kraft Foods Inc. Salyer had previously pleaded not guilty to charges of bribery, conspiracy, racketeering and obstruction of justice that were unsealed in

Sacramento federal court in February. Prosecutors say Salyer bribed purchasing managers to buy tomato products from his company, Monterey-based SK Foods. Salyer also is charged with overseeing the sale and shipment of processed tomato products that contained high levels of mold or had been intentionally mislabeled.

Winds add problems in Vermont snowstorm MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) – Vermont electric utilities say about 3,600 customers in the northwestern part of the state are without power from a late season snowstorm followed by high winds. The late-season storm Tuesday and Wednesday dumped up to two feet of snow across parts of northern Vermont, toppling branches and power lines. High winds on Thursday added to the problems. The winds spread north to Maine, and New Hampshire was also hit. Most of the outages Thursday in Vermont were being reported in Chittenden, Franklin, Orange and Windsor counties. But spring returned to the state Thursday afternoon with temperatures in the 50s. By the weekend temperatures could be in A pair of sheep look up from a snowy pasture in Plainfield, Vt., Thursday.

White House: Oil spill could affect drilling plan WASHINGTON (AP) – The Obama administration said Thursday that the massive oil spill along the Gulf Coast will be considered in a planned expansion of offshore drilling and will become part of the debate on climate change in Congress. White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said the cause of the oil rig explosion, still not determined, could affect what areas the government would open for future drilling. But Gibbs and other officials said President Barack Obama remains committed to plans to expand offshore drilling to areas that now are off limits. Obama has called for new off-

shore drilling in the Atlantic drilling proposal – along with Ocean from Delaware to cen- increased federal loan guarantral Florida, plus the northern tees to ramp up construction of nuclear power plants – will attract some Republican votes on a bill to curb emissions of pollution-causing gases blamed for global warming. “Obviously this will become part of the debate” on climate change, White House energy adviser Carol Browner said Thursday. The legislation backed by the White House aims to cut emiswaters of Alaska. He also wants sions of carbon dioxide and other Congress to lift a drilling ban greenhouse gases 17 percent below in the oil-rich eastern Gulf of 2005 levels by 2020. It also would Mexico, 125 miles from Florida expand domestic production of oil, beaches. natural gas and nuclear power. The administration hopes the Sen. Robert Menendez, D-

The spill could affect what areas the government would open for future drilling.

N.J., a drilling opponent, said he hoped the White House statements were a sign that the administration was incorporating the reality of oil spills into its approach to coastline drilling. White House officials had minimized the impact of the oil spill in the days immediately following the April 20 explosion, which left 11 people missing and presumed dead. An estimated 5,000 barrels of oil a day are spewing from the blown-out well off the Louisiana coast. “There are a lot of Americans – particularly in places where coastline drilling doesn’t currently exist – who are watching the dramatic images from the

Gulf and rethinking whether they would accept such a scene closer to home,” Menendez said. He will work to ensure that the New Jersey shore never comes under a similar environmental threat, Menendez said. Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., meanwhile, filed legislation blocking the Interior Department from conducting seismic tests in the Atlantic Ocean as part of its plan to expand offshore drilling. Deputy Interior Secretary David Hayes said the type of explosion that led to the Gulf Coast oil spill is extremely rare, adding that oil rigs in the Gulf and other offshore sites are subject to close federal oversight.
