Polls open for today’s primary election

TRIAD – Voters from across the region head to the polls today to determine which candidates survive and advance. Winners in today’s Republican, Democratic and unaffiliated primaries will punch their ticket to the Nov. 2 general election. Perhaps the highest-profile contest in the region involves the Republican primary for Davidson County sheriff, where incumbent David Grice is trying to hold off a challenge from former sheriff Gerald Hege and retired State Highway Patrol Trooper Terry Price. Controversy has surrounded the volatile campaign because Hege relinquished the office six years ago after pleading guilty to felony counts of obstruction of justice. The Republican sheriff’s primary winner will take on Democrat Thomas Evans Jr. in the fall. Contested races for sheriff also are taking place in the Democratic and Republican primaries in Guilford County and in the Republican primary in Randolph County. Six of the 16 state legislators in the area face primary challenges, and primaries are taking place in two Guilford County legislative districts where the incumbent is retiring after this year. Another high-profile area race involves the Republican primary in the 6th Congressional District, where 13-term Rep. Howard Coble faces a challenge from four fellow Republicans – Cathy Brewer Hinson of High Point, Dr. James Taylor of Moore County, Jeff Phillips of Greensboro and Guilford County Commissioner Billy Yow. Coble is facing his first primary challenge since initially running for the office in 1984. The Republican nominee takes on Democrat Sam Turner of Salisbury in the general election.

Historical edition notes change During the first couple of decades of its existence, The High Point Enterprise basically was a weekly newspaper.

many seats on its outdoor patio as it does inside. “It’s going to be a big part of our business,” he said about the warm weather. “The cold weather really is probably why smokers weren’t out that much this winter (after the ban was passed).” His patio already has been full on recent nights, he said. “With smokers, you have some people who want to be able to drink and smoke at the same time,” he said. “If they aren’t able to, they’ll probably stay at home. I think the warmer weather may make things a little bit easier.”

HIGH POINT – City electricity customers could see a 4.8 percent rate increase starting June 1. The change, combined with a state-mandated charge to help finance renewable energy initiatives, would increase the monthly bill of an average residential electric user by $5.20, to $113.37. The City Council on Monday opted to set a public hearing for May 17 on the proposed increase, which is being recommended by city staff to cover an estimated 4.8 percent rise in the price of wholesale power the city purchases through ElectriCities, the electric co-op of which High Point is a member. City officials are recommending approval of the increase by the council for utility statements going out on or after June 1. Officials said they expect additional electric rate bumps of about 5 percent over the next couple of years. “We’ve been on a downhill trend the last few years. Looking at our industrial customers, I don’t expect their loads to go up,” said City Manager Strib Boynton. “I would expect (continued increases) would happen until the economy rebounds and demand picks up.” ElectriCities’ costs are up because the cost of nuclear fuel, property taxes on the South Carolina nuclear plant where the city’s power is generated, and other operating and capital costs have continued to rise, according to Boynton. In addition, ElectriCities’ energy demand was down 3.9 percent in 2009 | 888-3617



Restaurants expect smokers to return as temps heat up BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – Before the cold weather came to an end and signs of spring arrived, Linda Buckner, manager at Bimini’s Oyster Bar and Grill, placed a kerosene heater outside of the restaurant after the state’s smoking ban was passed. The small source of warmth was enough to keep smokers around for the winter while non-smokers gathered inside, Buckner said. “It worked,” she said. “All of our loyal customers who smoke are still here.” Now that warmer weather is here, other restaurant owners have hopes the sunshine may bring back some smokers who left the restaurant and bar scene after the ban was passed. “It goes without saying that it will play a role,” said Luke Martin, assistant manager at Liberty Steakhouse and Brewery on Mall Loop Road. “As it continues to get warm, our patio will be full.” The ban allows smoking on most outdoor patios as long as they have less than three walls and a roof. Martin said the restaurant sees the largest mixture of smokers and non-smokers during the restaurant’s lunch hours. Warm temperatures seemingly could allow the patio to become what once was the smoking section in the restaurant, he said. “It may bring some smokers back out,” he said. “I don’t know how big the effect will be, but it will help.” Allen Andrews, owner of Harrison’s Restaurant on N. Main Street, said his restaurant has about as

Advocates want tougher animal cruelty laws BY PAT KIMBROUGH ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – A group of local animal advocates on Monday asked the City Council to consider toughening local ordinances dealing with animal cruelty. About 25 members of a newly formed nonprofit called Triad Laws for Paws attended the council’s regular meeting and pledged to work with the city in enacting measures such as an anti-tethering ordinance in the wake of cases like one that occurred in High Point last

The council’s Public Safety Committee will take up the issue, along with a proposed resolution in support of a proposed state law that would toughen penalties for people who “maliciously torture” maim, beat or otherwise harm an animal. Supporters of “Susie’s Law” named the proposed legislation after a puppy who was burned and beaten in a Greensboro case in which the offender did not get an active sentence for animal cruelty. “This is for when you get a dog or animals to fight or maim them on purpose,” said Councilman Mike Pugh. “You can

take an animal and chain it and starve it to death and it doesn’t fall under Susie’s Law; it’s a misdemeanor.” Wiltsey said that the group has existing ordinances from other cities that it will offer the committee for guidance when it takes up the issue, possibly next month. “I have dogs and love my dogs,” said Councilman Latimer Alexander. “We don’t want to do too much with animal laws if we can’t enforce what we’ve got.” | 888-3531

FBI: Ex-SC sheriff dealt drugs from police SUV COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) – A South Carolina sheriff dealt drugs from his police SUV and when state and federal agents gave him a list of possible drug dealers in his county, he immediately started calling to tip them off or extort money to get them off the list, according to the FBI. The FBI tapped thenLee County Sheriff E.J.

NEW YORK (AP) – Lynn Redgrave, an introspective and independent player in her family’s acting dynasty who became a 1960s sensation as the unconventional title character of “Georgy Redgrave Girl” and later dramatized her troubled past in such onewoman stage performances as “Shakespeare for My Father” and “Nightingale,” has died. She was 67. Her publicist Rick Miramontez, speaking on behalf of her children, said Red-

ment from an FBI agent released Monday. Melvin was arrested Saturday and remained in jail Monday after a preliminary hearing. Melvin resigned his office the day he was arrested. A spokesman said Gov. Mark Sanford will appoint an interim sheriff. Melvin and six others were charged with conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute five kilograms or more of powder cocaine and 50 grams or more of crack cocaine. If convicted, the former sheriff faces a mandatory 10 years in prison and could face up to life behind bars.

Children Ben, Pema and Annabel were with her, as were close friends. “Our beloved mother Lynn Rachel passed away peacefully after a seven year journey with breast cancer,” Redgrave’s children said in a statement Monday. “She lived, loved and worked harder than ever before. The endless memories she created as a mother, grandmother, writer, actor and friend will sustain us for the rest of our lives. Our entire family asks for privacy through this difficult time.” Redgrave was diagnosed with breast cancer in December 2002. Her death comes a year after her niece Natasha Richardson died from head injuries sustained in a skiing accident and just a month after the death of her older brother, Corin Redgrave.

compared to the previous year, which has translated into lower surplus power sales to co-op members. For average commercial customers, the proposed increase would amount to a monthly hike of $28.83, to $640.12 and $79.18, to $1,642.76 for industrial users. According to Boynton, High Point and the other 18 cities in ElectriCities’ Agency 1 group initially expected to see a 9 percent wholesale rate increase this summer but reduced the amount of the hike through aggressive cost cutting and debt restructuring. “While no one likes rate increases, I am also very

pleased that we have been able to greatly minimize Agency 1 and, in turn, High Point rate increases the past few years, compared to the significantly higher rate increases experienced by customers of Duke Energy, Eastern Agency, Progress Energy, Dominion and TVA,” Boynton said. He added the city’s estimated 4.8 percent increase in wholesale power costs equals a rise of about $3.9 million, to $85 million, in next year’s budget. Wholesale power is expected to represent 77 percent of the city’s $110.4 million 2010-11 Electric Fund budget. | 888-3531

MILWAUKEE (AP) – The Milwaukee Bucks’ rallying cry – “fear the deer” – turned into a punchline Sunday afternoon when two deer burst through the glass doors of a Menomonie restaurant as patrons watched a Bucks playoff game. The first deer apparently hurt itself, bloodying its snout and

– becoming dazed, said Jay Ouellette, general manager of the Stout Ale House. Two customers were able to safely wrestle it to the ground. The other deer fled into a private room. Cornered deer can be dangerous because they kick and bite, but a restaurant worker managed to wrestle that animal down as well, Ouellette said.

“I could tell it was starting to get a little anxious,” he said. “There was definitely the possibility of injury.” The incident happened about 12:20 p.m. – shortly after the Bucks started Game 7 of their playoff series against Atlanta. There were about 30 customers in the restaurant at the time, many watching the game.

Four arrested in teen’s murder Charlotte-Mecklenburg police have arrested four men and are looking for a fifth person in the murder of a 17-year-old West Mecklenburg High School senior who was shot to death 24 hours earlier. Police say the four men in custody face murder charges in the death of Deandre Demacus Kidd, who had been planning to attend the senior prom in two weeks and graduate next month. He was shot to death inside a car about 4 a.m. Sunday, after he and three other people stopped at a west Charlotte fast-food restaurant for an early-morning snack. Police have not said what might have led to the shooting, and whether the victim knew those who fired shots at the car he was in. Police say the three men arrested Monday morning were Cameron Edward Butler, 20; Larry Jamar Gilchrist, 19; Craig Alan Leverette Jr., 18; Billy Danzel Williams, 18.

According to police spokeswoman Officer Rosalyn Harrington, each man has been charged with one count of murder; three counts of attempted murder; and one count of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, inflicting serious injury. Police say they are looking for Titus Isaiah Campbell, 19. Three other people – two males

Charlotte police still are looking for a fifth suspect, 19-year-old Titus Isaiah Campbell. and a female – were in the car with the victim. Maurice Wilson, a cousin of Kidd, also was sitting in the back seat and was struck by gunfire. He was taken to Carolinas Medical Center and underwent surgery Sunday. Family members have told reporters the injuries are serious. Another cousin, Rakeem Mc-

Hayes shows no signs of mental illness, Dix officials say MCCALTCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

Michael Hayes doesn’t show signs of a mental illness and does not appear to be a danger to society, two mental-health professionals testified Monday in a hearing in Forsyth Superior Court to determine if Hayes should be released from Dorothea Dix Hospital in Raleigh. Hayes killed four people and wounded five others in a 1988 shooting spree on Old Salisbury Road. He was

found not guilty by reason of insanity and has spent the past 20 years at Dorothea Dix Hospital being treated for mental illness. In 2007, after a hearing, Judge Steve Balog ordered him recommitted to the hospital. Last year, the N.C. Court of Appeals ruled that Hayes could be discharged from Dorothea Dix “with conditions,� if a local judge approves it. At issue in today’s ruling is if Hayes should be recommitted, released without conditions or released with conditions.

Police said the four were driving home in a car owned by Kidd’s mother, DeAndrea McConneyhead, after stopping at the Cook Out restaurant on Freedom Drive.

Primary drawing small turnout despite voter anger RALEIGH (AP) – North Carolina voters angry with Congress have only been trickling to the polls for Tuesday’s primary that could alter the state’s leadership on Capitol Hill. Some 170,000 people cast ballots in early voting, roughly one-third the number that appeared during the one-stop period for the presidential primary two years ago. There’s been no sign of a tea party surge, as Republicans have comprised just 33 percent of voters so far – similar to last election and to the statewide breakdown of party registration. “It’s disappointing that more people are not tuning into the importance of the

primary election,� said Bob Hall, executive director of elections watchdog Democracy North Carolina. “It’s the place where candidates are filtered out. The vote actually has tremendous weight.� North Carolinians have expressed discontent with elected officials and particularly Congress; an Elon University poll released two weeks ago showed 69 percent of state adults said they disapproved of the way Congress was doing its job. That has yet to translate into mobilization at the ballot box, however. Gary Bartlett, the executive director of the State Board of Elections, said officials were hoping to see more early voters.

ARMSTRONG WILLIAMS: BP had better be ready to make right this mess in the Gulf. TOMORROW

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


Illegal Mexicans are still coming, taking our jobs I haven’t written in quite some time so I thought I’d remedy that. To get to the point, I wonder what’s going to happen to fellow North Carolinians who have lost their jobs or who are laid off to what our president and our governor call a bad economic situation. I can sympathize with every N.C. citizen who is out of work, because I’m one of them. I’m not sure my company is ever going to bring me back, and I’m sure that the other guys feel the same. Problem is that even though we are barraged with the news about government help with creating new jobs, they ignore the real reason! As I write this, more and more illegals are coming to North Carolina to work. Many have come from California since their governor canceled medical benefits and made it harder for them to obtain driver’s licenses! My problem, as well as for others, is that these illegals aren’t being stopped. They are everywhere – painters, dry wallers, landscaping. You name it and they are working while we can’t even get a job flipping burgers. American citizens are drawing unemployment while these Mexicans are slowly but surely taking over this state. What is our governor doing to stop them? Nothing! I’m sick and tired of our government allowing these illegals to take our jobs and those companies



who have simply left the state for sweat shop labor profits. It’s got to stop! North Carolinians are losing everything because of the inability to stop the invasion. We as Americans have got to rise up and let our so-called leaders know what we think! Nuff said. ROY WOODMANSEE High Point

Hardworking taxpayers want to keep their money

I would like to respond to Daniel Shirley’s letter (April 9) supporting Obama’s health care takeover. His letter is indicative of the illogical and emotional selfishness propelling the drive for more government-provided health care. The same arguments being espoused today were used for the passage of Medicaid and MediMississippi governor was care, and both programs have been mismanaged and looted by on the scene after tornado politicians until bankruptcy and I see the governor of Mississippi insolvency are in the very near future. was on the scene one-half hour To expect our government to after a tornado struck.

Simple explanation for why government heath care will not work – money. Never mind the arguments like freedom vs. tyranny or socialist vs. democracy. This nation is multi-trillions in debt to communist and tyrannical countries. There is only a finite amount of taxes that can be paid by the taxpayers, yet we are the ones so slandered by the health-care advocates – working taxpayers who slave away for the “benefit of society.” Working taxpayers are the only ones who make society possible, and to attack them as having “something wrong” with them for objecting to funding more health care for strangers (at the expense of their own families’ health care) is juvenile, selfish and unfortunately typical of the pro-Obama mentality.

ur regular Tuesday columnist John Hood of the John Locke Foundation today raises a discussion we touched on late last year when the Tea Party/anti-incumbent/no Obama health care movements gained steam. We speculated that results in some of today’s party primaries may well provide keen insight into the voting public’s political mood and the strength of those various new groups. We’re more convinced today than we were back then that some of these primaries will give us clues. And none may tell us more than the GOP 6th District U.S. House primary that pits 13-term incumbent Howard Coble against four challengers – Billy Yow, James Taylor, Jeff Phillips and Cathy Brewer Hinson (John Mangin dropped out). Coble perhaps hasn’t had that many challengers, including Democrats, in the last three or four elections combined. All four candidates really don’t seem to be running against Coble as much as they are running against Washington, the Democrats and President Obama and in general pushing their own political policy agendas. But they all are going to have a core constituency of voters who will cast their ballots this year without marking Coble’s name. If the affable Coble gets less than 60 percent of the vote today, we’d say there’s great unrest in the land. But there are some other area GOP primaries to watch to gauge voter discontent, especially with longtime incumbents. In N.C. House 78 in Randolph County, 17term incumbent Harold Brubaker is being challenged by County Commissioner Arnold Lanier. In Davidson County, 10term incumbent Jerry Dockham faces a challenge from Denton businessman Dick Johnson. But no matter which candidate you decide to support, we urge that you get out and vote today. The polls are open from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., and there’s no valid excuse for not voting.

What will results of the party primaries tell us?


he 2010 political primaries are here, and millions of North Carolinians are breathless with anticipation to discover the nominees for dozens of competitive federal, state and local races. OK, so perhaps I exaggerate slightly. Are there large numbers of voters following the primaries closely? No. But it’s still likely that a couple million North Carolinians will vote today, judging by the turnout in recent nonpresidential election years. Whatever their level of knowledge about candidates for Congress, Legislature, county commission, judge and school board, these primary voters are about to make some important decisions. It has become a bit of a cliché to ascribe abiding significance to upcoming elections. Is the next election truly the most important in your lifetime? Maybe – until the next one comes along. The truth is, every election matters. Every election either reinforces or overturns recent political trends, giving politicians the power to act in ways that you will either really like or really hate. Still, I would argue that the 2010 cycle deserves special attention for several reasons: • It will test the depths of the political reaction to the Obama administration’s efforts to turn America sharply to the Left, toward a European-style welfare state. In other words, is the Tea Party movement for real or for show? • It will test whether the 2008 surge in voter registration was a unique phenomenon, a response to the historic possibility of electing the nation’s first black president, or the beginnings of a permanent change in electoral participation. In other words, will all those new voters show up for the mid-terms? • It will test whether state Republicans have

the talent, resources and drive necessary to seize a unique opportunity to unseat the Democrats as the governing party of North Carolina. Never before have GOP prospects looked so good so early in an election cycle to win the General Assembly. In OPINION other words, will they sustain their momentum into NovemJohn ber? Hood • It will test whether the cycle ■■■ will produce a normal or abnormal recovery for the party out of power, in this case the Republicans. In other words, will 2010 resemble 1990 or 1998? Or will it be a political earthquake like 1994 or 2006? If Democrats do a good job of turning out their base and changing the subject from issues that are killing them (health care) to issues where they have a better shot (financial regulation), perhaps they’ll lose a couple dozen seats in the U.S. House and half a dozen in the U.S. Senate. They will have paid a significant price for being in power during tough times – but they’ll stay in power. That’s the best-case scenario for them. But if Republicans do a good job of keeping the focus on health care and the weak employment recovery – reflecting and focusing the public’s ire against bailouts, pork-barrel, debt and Obamacare – they could well gain 50+ seats in the House, easily giving themselves control, and approach a majority in the Senate.

Iraqi politicians bicker over recount



Mild tremor shakes Haiti: No damage PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti – People ran screaming from buildings Monday as a mild tremor rattled a Haitian capital still traumatized by the deadly Jan. 12 earthquake. There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries from the latest tremor. Preliminary data from the U.S. Geological Survey show the magnitude4.4 earthquake struck in the Caribbean Sea about 25 miles west of Port-auPrince.

Video shows Pakistan Taliban boss alive KABUL – The leader of Pakistan’s Taliban appeared in a video Monday threatening attacks against the U.S. three months after American and Pakistani officials believed he died in a U.S. missile strike. Hakimullah Mehsud’s emergence occurred as a suicide bomber attacked the gate to a CIA base where seven agency employees were killed last December. The Pakistan Taliban claimed responsibility for that bombing.

Court convicts Pakistani in Mumbai siege MUMBAI, India – An Indian court on Monday convicted the only surviving gunman in the bloody 2008 Mumbai siege, ruling Mohammed Ajmal Kasab was guilty of murder and waging war for his role in the attacks that left 166 people dead and deeply shook India. Two Indians accused of helping plot the violence were acquitted. The verdict also implicated Pakistanis still at large in the attacks, which is likely to complicate recent attempts by Islamabad and New Delhi to rekindle formal peace talks.

Guns with diamonds, gold seized in Mexico MEXICO CITY – Mexican soldiers have seized an arsenal of gold-plated, diamond-encrusted weapons believed to belong to the Valencia gang, allies of the powerful Sinaloa drug cartel, prosecutors said Monday. Photos of the weapons show that most of the 31 pistols found in a raid on a home in western Mexico had gold or silver-plated grips or glittered with diamonds – customized weapons favored by some drug gangsters.

Egyptian police beat pro-freedom protesters CAIRO – Egyptian police on Monday beat antigovernment protesters who were demanding an end to the country’s 30year emergency law that restricts civil freedoms in the latest challenge to the authorities from the streets of Cairo. The scuffle erupted after several hundred policemen, dressed in black uniforms, pushed back about 150 protesters who had gathered in the downtown and tried to break through a security barrier.

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton addresses the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT) conference at United Nations headquarters, Monday.

Clinton: Time for strong Iran penalties UNITED NATIONS (AP) – U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, accusing Iran of “flouting the rules,� called Monday for a strong international response to Tehran’s alleged development of a nuclear weapons program. Earlier in the day, the first in a monthlong conference reviewing the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty, Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad rejected such allegations, saying Washington has offered not “a single credible proof.�

Because of suspicions Iranian uranium enrichment is designed to produce bombs, the U.S. is negotiating with other Security Council nations here to impose a fourth round of U.N. economic sanctions against Iran. Clinton proposed that the nonproliferation treaty be strengthened by introducing “automatic penalties� for noncompliance, rather than depending on such drawn-out council diplomacy. Iran’s actions have “placed the future of the nonproliferation

LONDON (AP) – Britain’s three main party leaders fanned out across the country on Monday to campaign in target districts, as a new poll suggested the Conservatives were leading, but unlikely to win a majority. Cameron W i t h just days to go before the May 6 vote, the poll in Monday’s Guardian newspaper showed David Cameron’s Conservative Party ahead by five percentage points, but the newspaper said the support was insufficient to take a majority of seats in Britain’s House of Commons. To secure a majority, a party must win at least 326 seats out of 650. The ICM/Guardian poll put the Conservatives at 33 percent. The Labour Party, led by Prime Minister Gordon Brown, and the Liberal Democrats, led by Nick Clegg, were tied with 28 percent each. The survey questioned 1,026 adults.

The secretary of state also announced a new U.S. initiative on stockpile “transparency� that would provide previously undisclosed details about the size of the U.S. nuclear arsenal. Iran’s Ahmadinejad addressed delegations of 189 treaty nations. As the Iranian president spoke, the U.S. delegation, of workinglevel staff, walked out of the General Assembly hall, as did several European delegations, including the French and British.

BAGHDAD (AP) – The Iraqi prime minister’s coalition cried foul just one hour into a partial vote recount that began Monday and demanded the process be halted, the latest political tussle delaying the formation of an Iraqi government in the aftermath of the close election. The recount of roughly 2.5 million votes cast March 7 in the capital was demanded by Shiite Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s State of Law coalition, which narrowly lost to a bloc led by former prime minister Ayad Allawi that enjoyed heavy Sunni support. It has further stalled any formation of a government, raising fears that violence will increase as U.S. forces withdraw this summer. Raider Visser, who closely follows Iraqi politics for the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs, said it is doubtful the recount will alter the outcome.

SUV owner: ‘Sold it to stranger’



US says it has 5,113 nuclear warheads WASHINGTON – The United States has 5,113 nuclear warheads in its stockpile and “several thousand� more retired warheads awaiting the junkpile, the Pentagon said Monday in an unprecedented accounting of a secretive arsenal born in the Cold War and now shrinking rapidly. The White House disclosed the size of its atomic stockpile going back to 1962 as part of a campaign to get other nuclear nations to be more forthcoming.

Cables blamed in NYC manhole fire NEW YORK – A manhole fire blamed on underground electrical cables shot flames 10 feet into the air Monday afternoon near Times Square, startling passers-by and closing a street just blocks from where a failed bomb was found over the weekend.

Officials table phone policy Davidson school board to clarify when students can use cell phones BY DARRICK IGNASIAK ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

LEXINGTON – The Davidson County Board of Education on Monday night delayed making changes to its cell phone policy that would stop usage on school and activity buses. Following remarks from board member Alan Beck on the proposed revisions, the school board agreed to send the policy back to com-

mittee. The revisions would have banned students from using cell phones “while on any bus or other vehicle as part of any school activity,” according to the proposal. “Unless they are creating a problem for the bus driver, I don’t have a problem with that,” Beck said. “I’d rather have them talking on their telephone quietly with whoever they want than nobody talking and looking for something else to do on the bus, which is going to cause a problem on the bus as far as what they are doing and as far as how loud they are getting.” Beck also disagreed with the proposal because of extra-curricular activities. As his experience as a coach, Beck said children have to

Bruster’s shop won’t re-open, owners say BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – High Point residents will have one less place to scream for ice cream this summer. Bruster’s Old Fashioned Ice Cream and Frozen Yogurt at 2011 N. Main St. won’t re-open this year as it usually does when summer approaches, according to com-

The store on N. Main Street is owned by the parent company of Ham’s Restaurants, which has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. pany representatives, and it may be put up for sale. “It will not be re-opening,” said David Hall with Chelda Inc., parent company of Ham’s Restaurants, which owns the ice cream franchise. Financial details of the matter were not disclosed. The ice cream shop opened in 2001 as the first Bruster’s

in the Triad under the ownership of Charles Erwin, also the owner of Ham’s, and Steve Coggin. It usually closes for the winter and re-opens in May, Hall said. Ham’s also has a location beside of Bruster’s on N. Main Street. “It was another entity he was involved with,” Hall said about Erwin’s ownership of Bruster’s. The closing of the shop, which served special-order ice cream, frozen yogurt, Italian ices, cakes and pies, follows the recent financial struggles of its owners. Ham’s restaurants filed for bankruptcy in October and closed the original Ham’s location in Greensboro on Friendly Avenue last month. Hall said the ice cream shop had not yet officially been listed for sale but may be listed in the future. “We’re looking for someone to take it over,” he said. Another Bruster’s in High Point at 3860 John Gordon Lane in the Palladium shopping center is operated by a different owner, and it will remain open and unaffected, managers at the shop said Monday. The Palladium location opened in 2006 and operates year-round. | 888-3617

Wallburg officials break ground for new Town Hall ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT


Officials shakes hands after the groundbreaking ceremony for the Wallburg Town Hall, located on N.C. 109 near the intersection with Wallburg-High Point Road.

WALLBURG – The young town of Wallburg broke ground on its new Town Hall during an event Monday morning. Attended by town officials, the event was a milestone for the Wallburg Town Council as it has been a goal of the governing body from its beginning to get a town hall. Salisbury-based Jarrell Contractors has been awarded the contract to begin the construction process. The facility will be located on the corner of N.C. 109 and Franklin Drive. Last year, Mocksvillebased Fuller Architec-


ture Inc. was awarded an 18-month contract by the Town Council to oversee the entire project. A committee, made up of Davidson County Purchasing Director Dwayne Childress and Councilmen Gary Craver and Lynn Reece, recommended Fuller be chosen as the architect. Council members have said the need to build a town hall is very important because the governing body currently has its meetings at the Wallburg Fire Department. The town pays the fire department $3,000 a year to rent space to have its meetings.

Post office holds annual food drive BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Mail carriers who arrive at your mailbox Saturday will hope to pick up more than letters and bills. The U.S. Postal Serviceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual food drive will collect non-perishable food items Saturday to be donated to the United Way of Greater High Point and distributed to local food banks. Mail carriers will pick up the items on their daily routes for the national event. Items such as canned meat and fruit, soups, peanut butter, pasta or cereal can be collected, according to a release from the United Way. The nonprofit organization reports that local food banks have experienced a â&#x20AC;&#x153;critical and ongoing needâ&#x20AC;? for the items. Participating may be easier for some this year thanks to Wal-Martâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s introduction of a $5 food



Postal Food Drive collections over the years in the greater High Point area: â&#x20AC;˘ 2003: 16,500 pounds â&#x20AC;˘ 2004: 19,400 pounds â&#x20AC;˘ 2005: 26,500 pounds â&#x20AC;˘ 2006: 26,681 pounds â&#x20AC;˘ 2007: 25,925 pounds â&#x20AC;˘ 2008: 24,614 pounds â&#x20AC;˘ 2009: 28,983 pounds

bag for the event, said David Albertson, manager of customer service at the High Point Post Office on E. Green Drive. Simply purchase the bag thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s already filled with various non-perishable items and leave it by your mailbox, he said. Or, purchase your own non-perishable items and package them in plastic bags or cardboard boxes rather than glass jars or other materials that could break during transit. The nationwide event

collected 28,983 pounds of food in High Point alone last year. Officials at the United Way and the post office hope that number will be exceeded this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen that most everyone, especially during bad economic times like now, is more willing to donate,â&#x20AC;? Albertson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People were more willing to donate last year than they were in the past. Participation has been good.â&#x20AC;? He said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not only crucial to the community to contribute to the food drive this year, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also simple. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy for everyone,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All you have to do is put the food where you receive your mail. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll do the rest.â&#x20AC;? Food collections in the area will benefit 13 local food banks including Open Door Ministries, The House of Prayer, The Salvation Army and Triad Health Project. | 888-3617

A rivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s complaint triggers firing on workerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first day


ear Abby: My wife was hired for an administrative position. On her first day of work, they called her into the human resources directorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office and told her she was being â&#x20AC;&#x153;let goâ&#x20AC;? because of her Web site. The site has photos of her when she worked as a model for a large department store. They are in no way provocative or overly revealing. Photos of our children are also on the site. The HR director told her that one of the other (internal) applicants had Googled her and had seen the site. An image so upset the other applicant that she made a formal complaint, which caused my wifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dismissal! We consulted a lawyer and contacted the local Equal Employment Opportunity Commission only to be told that North Carolina is an â&#x20AC;&#x153;at willâ&#x20AC;? employment state and that the employer did nothing wrong. We feel their actions were wrong. Is there anything that can be done? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Yankee in Confederate Country

ADVICE Dear Abby

pear from your letter that your wife was terminated for an illegal reason, but what happened stinks anyway.

Dear Abby: My mother got drunk at a family function and started a fight with me. I ended up leaving before it could escalate, but I feel I ruined the hostâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s day. Would it be appropriate to send an â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sorryâ&#x20AC;? note, and how would I word it? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Making Amends in Tennessee â&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013; 

Dear Making Amends: The person making the amends should be the person who created the scene â&#x20AC;&#x201C; your mother. If you feel something needs to be said by you, and apparently you do, then write your host and say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel terrible about what happened at your party and would like to apologize for my motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s behavior. I left before she could create Dear Yankee: Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a scene, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m afraid it sorry, but the answer is cast a shadow on your no. In most states there is day, and for that I would a presumption of â&#x20AC;&#x153;at willâ&#x20AC;? like to apologize.â&#x20AC;? Sign it employment unless you with love. have a written contract to the contrary. However, P.S. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll lead a the employer cannot terhappier life if you stop minate an employee for feeling that you have an illegal reason â&#x20AC;&#x201C; such to apologize for your as age, religion, gender, motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s behavior. You sexual orientation or a are responsible only for disability. It does not apyour own.

Dear Abby: My husband and I have been lucky enough to travel all over the world during our long marriage. Over the years, we collected lovely items from every location. Now that we are older, we have decided to move into a smaller home, and would like to share these lovely souvenirs with our friends. Although I think â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ellenâ&#x20AC;? would love to have one of my silk scarves, and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peterâ&#x20AC;? would appreciate a pair of my husbandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s marble bookends, or â&#x20AC;&#x153;Annemarieâ&#x20AC;? would cherish my necklace from India, etc., Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m unsure that my choices would be their choices. Would it be proper for us to ask our friends to choose among our treasure rather than our making the choice for them? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; World Traveler In Miami Beach Dear World Traveler: I commend you for your generosity; however, you might run into trouble if several of your friends choose the same item. Were I in your shoes, I would make the selection for each of them. (Include a note with the gift â&#x20AC;&#x201C; i.e., â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ellen, this scarf matches your eyes,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Annemarie, I know you love ethnic jewelry,â&#x20AC;? etc.) DEAR ABBY is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

Guilford officials to face judge MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

GREENSBORO â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Guilford County Schools is being called to court this week. Officials with the district will head to Raleigh Tuesday to appear before Superior Court Judge Howard E. Manning Jr. for a hearing on lowperforming schools. Manning has been presiding over the Leandro case since 1994 when five rural school districts sued the state, claiming the state failed to adequately fund rural districts. Several urban districts later intervened, arguing the state failed to adequately fund them. Guilford County did not involve itself in the suit, but Manning pulled it in via a survey of urban school districts. Officials will likely testify that low-performing Guilford County schools receive additional funding in several ways including higher salaries for some teachers and specialized curriculum like magnet programs.

eginning to exercise is an important lifestyle change, and many people struggle to stick with it. Understanding barriers is the most important element of sticking with an exercise program. Time and fatigue are the biggest barriers to exercise. These barriers are often more mental than physical. Exercise can provide more energy throughout the day. Make exercise a priority and schedule it into your routine. Most people find it easier to exercise when the time is consistent. Research shows that many people feel they do not have the time to exercise, but proof shows the busiest people make time. Dropout rates increase when an exercise routine is inconvenient or boring. The greater the effort to prepare for physical activity, the greater the chance of quitting. Pick an easily accessible gym or park. Take workout clothes to work or leave a packed bag in the car. Make exercise enjoyable by picking fun activities, such as exercising with friends, family or pets or taking a group class at the gym. Vary the exercise routine daily to limit boredom. Many people avoid exercise because of fear of embarrassment or failure. These are prominent emotions that prevent achieving desired goals. Stop comparing yourself to others. Everyone starts exercising at different points of life and different levels. Compare progress to initial fitness assessments about every three months and feel good about achievements. Once you see improvement, you will be even more motivated to continue. Remember to begin slowly. and gradually increase exercise. Doing too much too quick causes people to quit. Here are some tips to stay on track: Realize it takes several months to see measurable results. Set realistic goals, and create a plan to achieve them. Reward yourself for achieving goals. Pick rewards that are important, and emphasize a healthy lifestyle, such as getting new walking shoes or a massage. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget to prepare for a missed session. Adherence and attendance are more important than performance.

Are statins safe for lowering cholesterol? D

ear Dr. Donohue: I have a question about taking simvastatin for cholesterol. After about six weeks of taking it, my right heel began to hurt, as if I’d bruised it. In another week, my left heel began to hurt. My blood tests were OK. It turned out I had plantar fasciitis. Could the simvastatin have caused this problem? I have never known anyone who had plantar fasciitis. I have read where statin drugs can have some bad and unknown side effects. – G.P.



Plantar fasciitis is a common cause of heel pain. The plantar fascia is a band of dense tissue that runs from the heels to the base of the toes. It supports the foot bones. “Fasciitis” indicates it is inflamed, usually from overuse. That simvastatin caused it is so remote as to be almost unbelievable. A few isolated reports of simvastatin possibly related to tendon inflammation have been mentioned, but fascia and tendons are not the same. Most of our cholesterol comes from our liver’s production of it, not from foods we eat. Statin drugs are the most effective cholesterol-lowering drugs we have. There are six: Zocor (simvastatin), Lipitor (atorvastatin), Mevacor (lovastatin), Lescol (fluvastatin), Pravachol (pravastatin) and Crestor (rosuvastatin).














All their generic names end with “statin,” hence the family name. HEALTH These medicines Dr. Paul markedly Donohue cut cho■■■ lesterol production and blood cholesterol level. Muscle damage is one important side effect of statin drugs. Symptoms are muscle pain, tenderness and weakness. Creatine kinase – CK – a muscle enzyme, rises in the blood to indicate muscle injury. Discontinuation of the medicine almost always reverses muscle changes. Liver damage is another possible and important side effect. It, too, can be detected by checking the blood for a rise in liver enzymes. Stopping the medicine almost always allows liver recovery. Statin drugs have other benefits. They quiet inflammation of arteries, something that leads to buildup of cholesterol on artery walls. They have, therefore, a double effect in the prevention of heart attacks and strokes. They also might lessen the risk for prostate cancer. They reduce the chances of coming down with gallstones. Dear Dr. Donohue: Four years ago, I de-

veloped speech problems. The doctor at a renowned clinic had me take speech therapy. I did, but to no avail. He then said I could have surgery or Botox injections of the vocal cords. He said the injections don’t last, but the shots can be given again. Every time I lose my voice I have to have a shot. I am very depressed by this. Can you please advise me? – Anon. From the suggested treatment, I presume your diagnosis is spasmodic dysphonia. It’s an interruption of vocal quality or a loss of voice caused by involuntary contractions of the vocal cords. Botox weakens the vocal cord muscles that are causing the contraction. One injection lasts three to four months. You would have four shots a year at most. It’s not too demanding a treatment, and I urge you to consider it. Surgery is another possibility if Botox doesn’t help you. Visit the National Spasmodic Dysphonia Association on the Internet at www.dysphonia. org. If you don’t have access to a computer, give them a call at 800795-6732. The association will provide you with the latest information and make you feel less alone by putting you in touch with others suffering the same problem.

(AP) – A University of Virginia men’s lacrosse player was charged Monday with first-degree murder in the death of a player on the women’s lacrosse team. George Huguely, 22, of Chevy Chase, Md., has been charged in the death of Yeardley Love, 22, of Cockeysville, Md., Charlottesville Police Chief Timothy Longo said.



Longo said Love’s roommate called police around 2:15 a.m. concerned that Love may have had an alcohol overdose, but police found her dead with obvi-

He wouldn’t say what lead investigators to Huguely or detail the extent of Love’s injuries. He said there did not appear to be any weapons. Love and Huguely were

Studio auction benefits The Arc of High Point BY JIMMY TOMLIN ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER


IGH POINT – The Creative Expressions Art Studio, which serves clients at The Arc of High Point, will benefit from an art auction this week. The silent auction, scheduled for Thursday evening at Swaim Design Center, will feature works of art by many of those clients, as well as a few pieces from artists in the community. The goal, organizers say, is to support the studio, which gives Arc clients an opportunity to express themselves artistically. “Creative Expressions Art Studio was founded about six years ago to give folks with disabilities an opportunity to express themselves through painting, and to have an opportunity to be recognized for an ability rather than a disability,” says Teresa McKeon, director of outreach for The Arc.

Westchester 5K run gets new nickname BY JIMMY TOMLIN ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER


IGH POINT – A fundraising run this weekend at Westchester Country Day School will honor the memory of a former school supporter. The race, the 6th Annual W-Day 5K Cat Challenge, also has a new nickname – “The Hobey” – in memory of Hobey Ragan. “Hobey was the father of four girls at our school, and he was a big fan of the school in general – athletics, arts, whatever,” says Adam Schwartz, director of alumni relations and external affairs at Westchester. “He was always here and was just a very loyal friend of our school.” Ragan died of lung cancer two years ago, leaving behind four daughters: twins Molly and Mary, who are juniors at Westchester; Libby, who graduated in 2004; and Lily, who graduated in 2009. The event will include a 5K run – on a scenic course – and a onemile fun run, as well as a 50-yard diaper dash and a little cat lap for small children. Race-day registration will be from 7:45 to 8:30 a.m., followed by


This year’s 5K Cat Challenge is being called “The Hobey,” in memory of Westchester Country Day School supporter Hobey Ragan. the one-mile fun run at 8:30, the 5K at 9, and the other two events at 10. Runners can also preregister online at www.westchestercds. org. “We have kindergartners and first-graders run the 5K, and we have grandparents run the 5K,” Schwartz says. “A lot of people walk their dogs or push strollers. It’s just a great family day for kids

of all ages, with good food and a festive atmosphere. There’s also a ‘jumping castle’ for little kids.” The entry fee prior to race day is $25 for the 5K and $15 for the fun run; the race-day entry fee is $30 for the 5K and $20 for the fun run. The diaper dash and little cat lap are free. Most of the proceeds from the event will go to the physical educa-


tion department at Westchester, to be put toward a climbing wall. A portion of the proceeds will also be given to the American Lung Association in Ragan’s memory. Last year’s event raised in excess of $3,000, according to Schwartz. For more information, call 8224090. | 888-3579







I sat down to watch a Chicago game as Cy the Cynic, a shameless chauvinist, cut Wendy, our feminist, as a partner. “Hear about the power failure at the mall?” Cy leered. “Stranded four blondes on an escalator.” “What a sharp wit,” Wendy growled. “Somebody stop him before he cuts himself.” When play began, North-South bid to four hearts, and the Cynic, West, led the queen of clubs. Wendy took the ace and returned the deuce, and South won and casually led a spade.

SPADE RUFFS Cy played low, and Wendy won and returned a spade. South ruffed, led a trump to the ace, ruffed a spade, led a trump to dummy and ruffed a club. He led a diamond to dummy’s nine, and Wendy took the ten but was end-played. “Thanks, partner,” Wendy bit out. “If you were smarter, you could be a proofreader at the M&M factory.” Cy was rightfully redfaced. East-West needed at least one diamond trick, so Cy should have grabbed his ace of spades for a diamond shift. He would save East from the end play.

Fox hopes speed works fast CHARLOTTE (AP) – John Fox knows the Panthers are faster. The Carolina coach isn’t ready to say they’re better. And he doesn’t have a lot of time to figure it out. Forgive Fox if he might have forgotten the names of a few players at last weekend’s minicamp. Of the 85 players on the field, 36 weren’t with the team for the final game of the 2009 season. Counting restricted free agent cornerback Richard Marshall, who skipped the workouts because he’s upset with his contract situation, 67 of Carolina’s 86 players are 25 or younger. It’s not necessarily the best scenario for a coach entering the last year of his contract and coming off an 8-8 season. “I think we’ve increased our team speed some,” Fox said. “We’ve got a lot of youth and with youth comes energy, so that’s the good news. Now we’ve just got to direct that energy in the right way.” With his future uncertain

Carolina running back DeAngelo Willliams (34) gives some pointers to Tyrell Sutton during rookie mini-camp on Saturday in Charlotte. The Panthers hope their emphasis on youth and speed will pay dividends this season. past 2010, Fox’s challenges are numerous thanks to owner Jerry Richardson’s decision to shed payroll ahead of the expiration of the collective bargaining agreement after this season.

hose who knew him in passing offered similar sentiments. “I certainly appreciated his work,” said John Swofford, commissioner of the Atlantic Coast Conference. “It was tragic to lose somebody that talented,” added Woody Durham, the voice of the Tar Heels. “And that young.” SPORTS Those who knew Tom Berry a little Steve better certainly Hanf echoed those senti■■■ ments. Ron Morris, sports columnist for the Columbia (S.C.) State, worked for the Durham Sun when Tom wrote for the Durham Herald in the mid ‘80s. Some 20 years later, their seats in the Carolina Panthers’ press box were right next to each other. “Tom had that dry sense of humor,” Morris said. “He was a fun guy to be around.” They certainly would have enjoyed mingling again Monday night in Salisbury for the annual National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association awards program. Berry was voted North Carolina’s sportswriter of the year by the NSSA panel – an honor given posthumously in the wake of his death Aug. 30. “As soon as I heard about (the award), I thought it was a great thing,” Morris said. “The only sad part about it is he didn’t win before he died.” That, more than anything, was the feeling from those who knew Tom best. His wife, Sandy, and younger brother Greg attended the ban-

Quarterback Jake Delhomme, fullback Brad Hoover, receiver Muhsin Muhammad, right guard Keydrick Vincent, defensive tackles Damione Lewis and Maake Kemoeatu

and linebacker Na’il Diggs were either cut or not resigned. Five-time Pro Bowl defensive end Julius Peppers was allowed to leave in free agency. The latest salary dump

came last week, when starting strong safety Chris Harris was traded to Chicago for backup linebacker Jamar Williams. What’s left is promising, inexperienced talent.

quet at Salisbury’s historic train depot, and Sandy walked across the stage when her husband’s name was called to accept his award. Berry “I was very thrilled, but it is bittersweet that he’s not able to know,” Sandy said. “I’m very honored to be able to accept in his honor. It hurts like crazy that he’s not able to accept it.” Tom won awards on a regular basis throughout his 20-plus year career at The High Point Enterprise. Most came through the N.C. Press Association in contests open to everyone at newspapers throughout the state. Monday’s was different. The only winners of NSSA honors are supposed to be NSSA members, but the Enterprise never has belonged to that organization. Regular winners include Sammy Batten of the Fayetteville Observer and Lenox Rawlings from the Winston-Salem Journal. “I’m proud that he won the sportswriting award, but much prouder of what a caring person he was,” Rawlings said earlier Monday. “I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone work harder than Tom, or more softly. Sometimes, he was still writing when I left the Masters press building or the Panthers stadium or any gym near you, which might be an industry record. He never complained. He usually smiled and chuckled and kept on going.” Rawlings said many of Tom’s colleagues encouraged him to take it easy two years ago following a stunning cancer diagnosis that sidelined Tom most of the summer. He returned healthy

and eager to work, and a year later received a clean bill of health. The stories kept coming, but in mid-August, Tom complained a bit about a lack of energy and not feeling quite right. He saw his doctor, planned a visit to Duke University Medical Center after the Wyndham Championship and actually covered the first three rounds of Greensboro’s PGA tournament despite feeling worse and worse. A week after his final story appeared in the Enterprise, he was gone at the age of 48, having succumbed to an infection due to complications from an unknown bout of leukemia. “He absolutely loved what he did,” Sandy said. “Tom was one of the rare people you meet who absolutely was doing what he wanted to do. It didn’t matter if he was covering the Super Bowl, the Masters, prep sports or a community swim meet, that was the most important athlete to him at the time.” But no matter where he was, Tom also was thinking about the important people at home. Sandy remembered when Tom covered a Saturday evening game in Philadelphia and drove home through the night to be at a baby dedication service for a family member the next morning. Rawlings remembered a similar event. “I remember the last time we shared a house, with others, at Augusta. He worked all day Sunday and then traveled all the way home at night so he could drive the family to Washington the next morning,” Rawlings said. “That’s what he wanted to do, so he did it. We had some great days together, and I miss him. He was

dedicated and dependable and respected for being himself.” Ashlyn, Rachel and Leah knew Dad would be there to make breakfast for them in the mornings and help them get ready for school, Sandy recalled. Now Ashlyn is getting ready to graduate from Western Guilford High School. She’ll head to North Carolina in the fall, where Tom graduated and where he met Sandy: not through regular campus life, of course, but when Tom was coming back into town to cover a UNC football game and had a friend set him up on a blind date. Monday night, when the sportswriters of the year were being introduced in a raucous ceremony, the emcee waited for the applause to subside for New Hampshire’s winner. As Sandy stepped to the stage, the story of Tom’s long career, his many achievements, and his death were told to the silent crowd. Those in attendance then rose as one to applaud what Tom had done over the years and what Sandy was doing on this night. As she returned to her table, she sat down, nodded in appreciation at those around her and looked down at the plaque which she was presented. She smiled – what appeared to be a smile of genuine happiness no matter the bittersweet nature of the night. Another happy memory of Tom to add to a collection too vast to count. “We’re doing OK,” Sandy said of the family. “It’s very difficult, tough for all of us. But we’re going on – we have to.” | 888-3526





Berry honored posthumously with NSSA award T



uick quiz? What do coupon clippers and the Belmont Stakes have in common? They’re both big fans of Super Saver. Let me explain. For the June 5 Belmont Stakes to carry any national interest, Super Saver needs to follow Saturday’s impressive victory in the Kentucky Derby with a triumph in the Preakness on May 15. If Super Saver is going for the Triple Crown, the eyes of the sports world will be focused on Elmont, New York that first Saturday in June. Otherwise, the Belmont Stakes figures to fade into obscurity faster than the latest castoff on “Dancing With The Stars.”

No race horse has waltzed away with the Triple Crown since Affirmed in 1978. There have been several close calls, but no horse took all three jewels. I hope Super Saver can complete this trifecta. The whole horse racing scenario reminds me of men’s tennis many years ago. Bjorn Borg captured the French Open and Wimbledon in 1978, ‘79 and ‘80 to make it halfway to the grand slam. The Australian Open was the final leg of the grand slam at that time and folks in Melbourne desperately wanted Borg to win the U.S. Open one of those years and commit to play in the Australian Open. But Borg fell in the U.S. Open all three

years and skipped the Aussie Open every time. Many other big-name men’s players followed Borg’s lead and left the Australian Open with less-than-stellar fields. The Australian Open switched dates prior to the 1984 season and became the first leg of the grand slam. That helped the quality of fields in Melbourne considerably. Since it’s highly unlikely the Belmont Stakes will jump ahead of the Kentucky Derby on the calendar any time soon – or ever – it’s Triple Crown hype or bust for the Belmont.



Billy Wagner has given the Atlanta Braves early notice he plans to retire after the season to spend more time with his family. Wagner said he is making his plans known early this season so the Braves can have time to prepare for 2011. Wagner, 38, plans to retire even though he has a $6.5 million option to play in 2011. He said the extra time he spent with his wife and four children while recovering from elbow ligament-replacement surgery in 2008 made it more difficult to be away from his Virginia home. Wagner used an off day on Monday for a quick trip to his home in Crozet, Va., near Charlottesville. The Braves open a series at Washington today. The 2011 option for Wagner kicks in if he finishes 50 games this season. Wagner is 1-0 with two saves and a 2.00 ERA in his first season as the Braves’ closer. He is sixth alltime with 387 career big-league saves.

AP: Chouest-Shinn agree on sale of Hornets NEW ORLEANS (AP) — New Orleans Hornets majority owner George Shinn has reached a deal to sell his shares of the team to minority owner Gary Chouest, according to two people familiar with the negotiations. The club is planning an announcement as early as Thursday afternoon, one of the people told The Associated Press on Monday. The initial plan was to introduce Chouest as the new owner on Wednesday, but that had to be pushed back because of scheduling matters unrelated to the sale. Both people with knowledge of the sale spoke on condition of anonymity because no official announcement has been made by either party. Calls to Chouest and Shinn at their offices were not immediately returned. Chouest is a Louisiana native and owner of Edison Chouest Offshore, a company that builds and operates marine vessels for the offshore oil and gas industries.

AP: Rice to become Rutgers coach NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — A person familiar with negotiations says Robert Morris basketball coach Mike Rice has agreed to become the coach at Rutgers. The school plans to introduce Rice at a news conference later this week, the person told The Associated Press on Monday, speaking on condition of anonymity because no official announcement had been made. Fred Hill resigned two weeks ago after four seasons as coach of the Scarlet Knights. Rutgers was 47-77 under Hill, including a 13-57 record in the Big East. Rice signed a one-year contract extension with Robert Morris last month. The Colonials were 73-31 in three seasons under Rice and won the last two Northeast Conference championships. Rutgers athletic director Tim Pernetti was unavailable for comment.

Shin replaces Ochoa at No. 1 DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — One day after Lorena Ochoa retired, there’s a new No. 1 in women’s golf. Jiyai Shin of South Korea moved to the top of the women’s world ranking Monday after winning on the Japan LPGA Tour. The victory gave her an average of 9.29 points, narrowly ahead of Ochoa at 9.20. Ai Miyazato of Japan, who won the LPGA event in Mexico, is now at No. 3. Ochoa had been No. 1 for 158 weeks since overtaking Annika Sorenstam in April 2007.

Shin was the LPGA Tour rookie of the year last season when she captured the money list and narrow won player of the year.

Leigh earns USA South, Meredith softball honors

Lefty has a chance to go to No. 1 PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (AP) – That 15-foot birdie putt Phil Mickelson made on the final hole at Quail Hollow meant more than an extra $130,000 for finishing in second place alone. It put him in position to become No. 1 in the world. Mickelson could reach the top spot in the world ranking for the first time in his career by winning The Players Championship, provided Tiger Woods finishes out of the top five. Of the players considered to be the “Big Four” of this generation – Woods, Mickelson, Vijay Singh and Ernie Els – Mickelson is the only player to have never been No. 1. The Quail Hollow Championship had already been decided when Mickelson came to the 18th hole in a tie for second with Angel Cabrera, five shots behind winner Rory McIlroy. The final birdie that made him solo runner-up gave him enough extra points for a chance to rise to No. 1 at the TPC Sawgrass. Woods, who missed the cut last week for only the sixth time in his career, has been No. 1 the last five years. Mickelson is trying to become only the 13th player to be No. 1 since the rankings began in 1986, and he has momentum on his side. He won The Players Championship two years ago, and he is coming off a Masters victory and a runner-up finish at Quail Hollow. “I’m glad that this first tournament went well, because after a couple weeks off after a big high like Augusta, you never know where the game is going to be at,” Mickelson said Sunday. Woods is coming off the highest 36-hole score of his career at Quail Hollow. He shot a 79 in the second round and missed the cut by eight.


RALEIGH – Infielder Rebecca Leigh, a former High Point Christian Academy all-state standout in softball, earned USA South allsportsmanship honors at Meredith College. Leigh, a 4-year starter at HPCA, was also named most improved on the Meredith team at the recent awards banquet.

Orlando’s Pietrus expects to play in Game 1 tonight


Phil Mickelson chips up on the fourth green during the final round of the Quail Hollow Championship on Sunday in Charlotte. Lefty finished second and can claim the world No. 1 ranking for the first time in his career with a victory in this week’s Players Championship, provided Tiger Woods misses the top five.

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) – Orlando Magic forward Mickael Pietrus expects to play in the second-round series opener against Atlanta after missing practice with a sprained left ankle. Pietrus sat out Monday after he sprained the ankle a day earlier in practice. But he said he would play tonight in Game 1 against the Hawks, even if the ankle is a sore. Pietrus twice sprained his left ankle this season, missing three games. He also sprained his right ankle once. The Magic’s backup forward has been a big boost off the bench the last two postseasons. Pietrus was 10 for 20 from 3-point range in Orlando’s first-round sweep of Charlotte. He averaged nine points in 18 minutes per game in that series.

United to buy Continental NEW YORK (AP) – United Airlines has agreed to buy Continental in a $3 billion-plus deal that would create the world’s largest carrier. The new United would surpass Delta Air Lines in size, which should help it attract more high-fare business travelers. It will fly to 370 destinations in 59 countries. The companies insisted the deal is a merger of equals. But United shareholders will hold a majority stake. The airline will be based in United’s hometown of Chicago, and it will be called United. It would be run by cur-



Apple sells 1 million iPads in 1st month CUPERTINO, Calif., – Apple Inc. said Monday that is has sold 1 million of its new iPad tablet computers in the month after its launch, meaning it’s been selling more than twice as fast as the iPhone did when it was new. Apple said it reached the milestone on Friday, when the new 3G model of the iPad was delivered to its first buyers. That model can access AT&T’s cellular broadband network. The first models had only Wi-Fi access.

GM’s April sales rise 6.4 percent DETROIT – General Motors Co.’s sales rose 6.4 percent in April as the auto industry continued to see signs of recovery, although the pace slowed from incentive-fueled March. GM said Monday that sales from its four remaining brands – Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac – rose 20 percent. GM is phasing out or selling Saab, Saturn, Pontiac and Hummer. Sales fell 2.4 percent from March.

Economic data, not spill, drive oil prices NEW YORK – Oil prices moved higher Monday, as traders watched whether the massive crude spill in the Gulf of Mexico will curtail imports if the oil slick shuts down a key shipping lane. Benchmark crude for June delivery climbed 56 cents to $86.71 a barrel in midday trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. ENTERPRISE NEWS SERVICE REPORTS


rent Continental CEO Jeffery Smisek, however. United CEO Glenn Tilton, a longtime advocate of consolidation in the airline industry, will be non-executive chairman for up to two years before Smisek adds the chairman title. The new parent company will be called United Continental Holdings Inc., and have about $29 billion in annual revenue based on 2009 results and $7.4 billion in unrestricted cash. The airlines said combining would save them $1 billion to $1.2 billion a year by 2013, including between $800 million and $900 million in new yearly revenue.

The deal would create a giant with major hubs in key domestic markets including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston and San Francisco and an international network stretching from Shanghai to South America. It will leave three big U.S. airlines with major international routes – the new United, Delta and American Airlines, with US Airways a distant fourth. United is the third-largest U.S. carrier by traffic, while Continental Airlines Inc., in Houston, is No. 4. Shares of both companies rose in morning trading Monday.

Manufacturing sees brisk expansion NEW YORK (AP) – The U.S. manufacturing sector expanded at the fastest pace in nearly six years in April, as factories continue to lead the economy’s rebound. The Institute for Supply Management, a private trade group of purchasing executives, said Monday its manufacturing index rose to 60.4 last month from 59.6 in March. It’s the ninth straight month of growth. A level above 50 indicates expansion. It is the fastest pace of growth since June 2004 when the index was at 60.5. Economists polled by Thomson Reuters had expected a lower reading of 60. The growth in manufacturing seemed stable,

ISM said. “We don’t have any reason to believe this won’t continue,” said Norbert Ore, chair of the ISM’s manufacturing survey on a conference call. The strong start to the second quarter suggests that the economy could grow 3 percent or more in the second quarter, said Miller Tabak analyst Dan Greenhaus in a research note. New orders, a gauge of future production, jumped to 65.7 from 61.5 in March, according to the ISM report. Production rose to 66.9, the highest level since January 2004 from 61.1 in March. ISM said employers’ willingness to hire rose to the strongest level since January 2005.

Dodge Caliber may have pedal problem DETROIT (AP) – The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is investigating a problem with sticky gas pedals in 2007 Dodge Caliber small sport utility vehicles. The company said Monday there have been only five complaints, and it is unaware of any crashes, injuries or property damage linked to the problem. No recall has been issued. Chrysler said the pedals were made by CTS Corp. of Elkhart, Ind., the same company that manufactured pedals involved in a Toyota Motor Corp. recall earlier this year.

The automaker said the investigation is in the early stages, but based on the build dates of the vehicles involved in the complaints, the problem appears to be limited to about 10,000 vehicles made during a five-week period in March and April of 2006. NHTSA said an estimated 161,000 vehicles are covered by the investigation, but a Chrysler spokesman said that’s the total of all Calibers built during the 2007 model year. The spokesman did not want to be identified because of company policies prohibiting disclosure.

Economic reports boost stocks NEW YORK (AP) – Investors sent stocks soaring Monday after getting a boost of confidence from the latest economic reports and Warren Buffett’s defense of Goldman Sachs. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 143 points for its biggest gain in two and a half months. The Dow and broader indexes all climbed more than 1 percent. The market rebounded from a drop Friday after a string of welcome news eased some of the concerns that have been dogging investors. Economic reports signaled that consumer spending and manufacturing are strengthening. Traders funneled money to retail and restaurant stocks after the Commerce Department said that personal spending rose 0.6 percent in March, the biggest increase in five months. However, personal income rose just 0.3 percent. The reports were in line with analysts’ expectations but showed that consumers were pulling money from savings to make purchases. Manufacturing continued to show broad improvement. The Institute for Supply Management said U.S. manufacturing activity expanded last month at the fastest pace in nearly six years. The trade group’s manufacturing index rose to 60.4 in April from 59.6 in March. Economists expected a reading of 60.

GMAC to change name amid rising profit NEW YORK (AP) – GMAC Financial Services on Monday posted its first quarterly profit in more than a year and announced plans to rename itself Ally Financial Inc., as the consumer lender aims to put a failed foray into the mortgage business behind it. The Detroit-based company reported first-quarter earnings of $162 million compared with a year-ago loss of $675 million as its mortgage unit swung to a pretax profit and its core automotive business posted its fifth straight profitable quarter. Revenue rose 7 percent to $1.86 billion. CEO Michael Carpenter called the quarter a

“key milestone” for the company. “Our premier auto finance franchise continued to expand, the capital markets reopened to GMAC debt, we have reduced expenses and we took several additional steps to contain and reduce risk in the mortgage business,” Carpenter said in a statement. The switch to the Ally Financial name, which takes effect May 10, reflects the recent strength of Ally Bank, its consumer banking unit. Ally Bank has been a major focus of GMAC’s marketing efforts and has benefited from rising deposits thanks in part to the relatively high interest rates

it offers. Retail deposits at Ally Bank rose 4 percent to $17.7 billion between the fourth and first quarters, GMAC said. The name change also marks a final break from the company’s heritage as a subsidiary of General Motors Co. Although GM sold GMAC in 2006, the lender retained its original name, which formerly stood for General Motors Acceptance Corporation. While GM remains a key customer of GMAC, the lender has been expanding its business to other vehicle manufacturers and is now the primary lender for Chrysler Group LLC, Suzuki and recreational vehicle maker Thor Industries Inc.

Avis ups the ante in Dollar Thrifty bid CHICAGO (AP) – Avis Budget Group Inc. plans to trump a rival’s bid for Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group Inc., saying the rental car company agreed to sell itself too cheaply. In a letter to two top executives at Dollar Thrifty, Avis’ chairman and CEO said he wants Dollar Thrifty to open its books before his company makes a “substantially higher” counter to the $1.17 billion offer from Hertz Global Holdings Inc.

That sent shares of Dollar Thrifty, based in Tulsa, Okla., to a three-year high. “We would like to make a substantially higher offer to acquire Dollar Thrifty, especially in light of your recent performance,” CEO and Chairman Ronald Nelson wrote. Last week, Dollar Thrifty posted a record first-quarter profit, earning $27.3 million, even though revenue slipped almost 4 percent. The profit topped expectations. Monday’s move comes

a week after Hertz, the world’s largest car rental company by locations, offered a cash-and-stock bid for Dollar Thifty that values the company at $41 per share, hoping to beef up its business among vacationers. Regardless of who ultimately acquires Dollar Thrifty, the expanded company will have to compete in an increasingly consolidated rental car market full of customers hoping to rent wheels for as little as possible.

Nashville braces for new flooding NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Nashville braced for more deaths Monday as the flooded Cumberland River continued to swell, sending muddy water rushing through neighborhoods and into parts of the historic heart of Music City after a destructive line of weekend storms killed 22 people in Tennessee, Mississippi and Kentucky. The flash floods caught the city off-guard, and thousands of residents and tourists were forced to flee homes and hotels as the river rapidly spilled over its banks. Using motor boats, jet skis and canoes, authorities and volunteers rescued residents trapped in flooded homes on Monday, some which looked like islands surround by dark brown river water. Eleven of the 12 people killed in Tennessee drowned, including six in Nashville. Country music’s landmark, The Grand Ole Opry House, was flooded with several feet of water, forcing managers to seek alternate space for upcoming AP shows. It wasn’t clear A motorist stops on Highway 54 North in Crockett Coun- how much water was in the concert hall. ty, Tenn., as waters rise across the road on Sunday.

Disaster declared after water main break BOSTON (AP) – President Obama has signed an emergency disaster declaration offering federal help as Massachusetts grapples with the effects of a major water main break. The break led Gov. Deval (deh-VAHL’) Patrick

to issue a boil order for about 2 million people in the Boston area. Obama’s declaration authorizes the Department of Homeland Security and Federal Emergency Management Agency to coordinate disaster relief efforts with

the state to help ease any hardships. The 10-foot wide pipe has been repaired, but health officials say testing must be finished before tap water in Boston and about 30 other communities is approved for drinking.
