Showroom property holder in default



Merchandise Mart Properties became a major player in the High Point Market in 1998 when it bought the Market Square showroom complex from a group of local businessmen.


Merchandise Mart Properties Inc. owns and manages 2.1 million square feet of permanent showroom and traditional exhibit space in High Point. The Chicago-based company also runs the Chicago Merchandise Mart, the largest commercial trade show exhibition complex in the world. Its High Point showrooms include: Market Square, Suites at Market Square, Hamilton Market, Plaza Suites, Furniture Plaza and National Furniture Mart.

HIGH POINT – The parent company of Merchandise Mart Properties Inc., the second-largest holder of showroom properties at the High Point Market, acknowledges in a financial filing this week that it’s in default on the loan for its local holdings. Vornado Realty Trust made the statement in a quarterly filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Tuesday. “In March 2010, we requested that the High Point Complex mortgage loan be placed with the special servicer. We have not made debt service payments since March and are in default. We are in negotiations with the special servicer; there can be no assurance as to the timing and ultimate resolution of these negotiations,” Vornado indicates in the filing. The balance of the loan as of March 31 was $217 million at an interest rate of 10.35 percent, according to the SEC filing. An executive with Merchandise Mart Properties said Wednesday the company’s “status with the building continues.” The financial issues with the properties haven’t affected tenants, vendors or employees, said Myron Maurer, senior vice president with Merchandise Mart Properties. “It’s business as usual. We had a very successful April market and are looking forward to October. We are excited about being in High Point,” he said. When asked by The High Point Enterprise if Vornado or Merchandise Mart Properties has any intention of walking away from or selling its High Point holdings, Maurer reiterated that “we’re continuing business as usual.” The High Point Enterprise reported in early March that Vornado intended to restructure its debt on its High Point holdings. At that time, Maurer also indicated the commitment of Vornado and Merchandise Mart Properties to High Point. Merchandise Mart Properties became a major player in the High Point Market in 1998 when it bought the Market Square showroom complex from a group of local businessmen. The Chicago-based company made acquisitions during the past decade to become second to the International Home Furnishings Center in High Point Market showroom square footage. | 888-3528

TRIAD – Voters won’t have many more decisions to make next month in runoff elections from Tuesday’s primaries. No local runoffs should be needed for races in Randolph and Davidson counties, election officials there said Wednesday. The only possible local runoff in Guilford County on June 22 would involve the Democratic primary for sheriff, said George Gilbert, director of the Guiford County Board of Elections. In the four-way Democratic sheriff’s primary, Phil Wadsworth led the pack with 32.6 percent of the vote, while C.B. Goins finished second with 23.7 percent. The Democratic nominee will take on Republican Sheriff BJ Barnes in the Nov. 2 general election. A runoff, known formally as a second primary, can take place when the winner of a race doesn’t get in excess of 40 percent of the primary vote. The results of the primaries won’t be official until after the canvass May 11. Democratic and some unaffiliated voters in Davidson, Guilford and Randolph counties would be eligible to cast ballots in the Democratic U.S. Senate runoff if it’s


HIGH POINT – Two fields that could unify High Point and Greensboro in the economic development sector are aviation and logistics, officials said at the first-ever joint meeting between the High Point Economic Development Corp. and the Greensboro Economic Development Alliance. The joint meeting was held to discuss communication efforts between the two organizations – an effort that often goes unnoticed by the public, said High Point EDC President Loren Hill. “There’s a lot of talk about rivalry (between us),” Hill said. “That may be a perception, but it isn’t what really goes on.” Don Cameron, chair of the High Point EDC, said the Piedmont Triad International Airport and the future North Carolina Center for Global

Logistics are two entities that are equally important to High Point and Greensboro. The fields of aviation and logistics also will be equally important to both cities in terms of future job creation, he said. “We have a lot of opportunities to work together at our airport,” Cameron said. “Global logistics gives us a great opportunity and will have a major impact. We need to be ready for that together from an economic development standpoint.” A groundbreaking for the logistics center, located north of the airport on the new northwest Guilford Technical Community College campus, is expected to be held in the next 30 days. The center is scheduled to be completed in 2012, said Cameron, also president of Guilford Technical Community College. A joint effort between dozens of area colleges and universities, the center will offer four virtual logistics courses in the fall, Cameron


said. Ground also will be broken for an aviation center in the next three months. Hill added that he holds a monthly meeting with Dan Lynch, GEDA president, and that the two work together to find suitable locations for businesses looking to relocate to the area. They also work with other economic development offices in the Triad. “On a project we were working on, (a client) had identified a building on the Greensboro Web site and the High Point Web site that they were interested in,” Lynch said. “So we contacted Loren (Hill). We also contacted Davidson County and Rockingham County.” Jim Phillips, GEDA chairman, said development in one city is important to the other. “When you prosper, we prosper,” he said to High Point leaders. | 888-3617

Grice says he’s happy with primary outcome BY DARRICK IGNASIAK ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

DAVIDSON COUNTY – A day after easily winning the Republican Primary against former Davidson County Sheriff Gerald Hege, incumbent David Grice said he is happy with Tuesday’s outcome. “I am very pleased,” he said. “I thought we would get probably 50 or 51 percent, but with

I’m retiring from it.’ Gerald Hege Former Davidson County sheriff the margin of victory, I think the voters of Davidson County sent a very clear message that this was an exceptional endorsement for my candidacy. I appreciate all the Republican and unaffiliated votes that we received.” According to the unofficial results, Grice received 61 percent, or 9,361 votes, to defeat Hege, who received 24 percent, or 3,838 votes. Terry Price, a retired state trooper, finished

third with 14 percent, or 2,274 votes, and Edgar Shuler, a former Davidson County Sheriff’s Office lieutenant, reHege ceived less than 1 percent, or 93 votes. A canvass of the sheriff race will be held Tuesday, said Ruth Huneycutt, director of the Davidson County Board of Elections. With all of the attention on the sheriff race during the primary, Grice said the campaign was one of his hardest. Grice was first appointed to the post of sheriff by the Republican Party in 2004 to fill the seat of Hege. Grice retained the office of sheriff in 2006 for a four-year term with an election victory over Roy Holman. Hege, who resigned after pleading guilty to two felony counts of obstruction of justice, re-emerged in November when he announced his intentions to run for sheriff. He told WXII 12 News on Tuesday night that he is going to retire from politics. “We’re surprised about it,” Hege said in an interview with the television station. “We thought we’d get more people out. We’re disappointed, but the people have spoken and we’re going to listen. This is the end. I’m retiring from it.” Hege could not be reached by

Now they’d only have to comply with ethics rules that their county commissions or town councils approve, which may or may not be stringent. “We gutted it,” said Sen.

SC lawmakers raise lowest smoke tax COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) – South Carolina legislators have approved raising what is now the nation’s lowest cigarette tax, but Gov. Mark Sanford promises he will veto it. The state Senate voted 41-1 on Wednesday to approve the 50-cent increase previously passed by the House.

Supporters say that the more important vote will come later, when they need a two-thirds vote in each chamber to override the veto. The current tax is 7 cents a pack. If the increase becomes law, Missouri would then have the nation’s lowest tax at 17 cents a pack.

Sanford, a Republican, says he will only agree to a cigarette tax increase if the money is used to offset some other tax. The current bill would put more than $125 million into Medicaid programs and $5 million into cancer research and anti-smoking programs.

Belk incentives boost United Way The United Way of Greater High Point recently thanked Belk at Oak Hollow Mall for using creative incentives to help encourage donations in the organization’s residential mailing campaign for the third year in a row. For 2009, 80 existing donors gave $5,406.30 in increased gifts and 76 brand new donors gave $13,036.60 in the recently concluded campaign. It represents a grand total of $18,442.90 in new dollars added to the 2009 campaign. The incentives over the last three years also have produced more than $63,000 in new and increased giving to the United Way. As part of the incentives, Karen and Jim Gooding of High Point won a $200 Belk shopping spree and Joan and Cletus Kruyer of Jamestown won a gift bag of fragrance and lotions.

RALEIGH – Pine straw was put on official notice Tuesday when the Raleigh City Council decided to ban using the popular, but highly flammable ground covering within 10 feet of certain multifamily dwellings and businesses. Apartment complexes will have until Dec. 1 to comply, and the city’s fire department will enforce the rule when it does its annual inspections. The December deadline will mean that the pine straw isn’t on the ground in winter, when dry, windy conditions can create dangerous situations where fire can be spread quickly,

Raleigh Mayor Charles Meeker said. It will also give apartment managers time to adjust to the new rule, which only applies to buildings that are constructed with “highlycombustible materials� such as vinyl siding, said Raleigh council member Mary-Ann Baldwin. Single-family homes aren’t affected by the

rule, because the city’s fire code only has jurisdiction over multi-family residences, such as apartments, and businesses, when it came to banning pine straw. The pine straw restrictions are in response to a fast-moving fire that destroyed or damaged a half-dozen single-family homes in a new North Raleigh neighborhood in March.

Burr easily turned back a pesky anti-incumbent protest movement within the Republican Party in Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s primary, but no Democratic candidate secured the 40 percent needed to avoid a runoff election. As a result, Democratic front-runner Elaine Marshall, North Carolinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s secretary of state, and Cal Cunningham, a former state senator, will

oppose each other in a June 22 runoff. With all counties reporting, including Forsyth, Marshall had 36.4 percent, or 154,890 votes, while Cunningham received 27.3 percent, or 116,316 votes.

Crews prepare to take contraption to Gulf oil leak PORT FOURCHON, La. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A 12-man crew was making final preparations Wednesday to take a 100-ton contraption 50 miles off the Louisiana coast in an unprecedented attempt to help funnel out oil spewing from the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico.

Shaffer, who lives in Seward, Alaska, said the ship would wait at the Deepwater Horizon site for the arrival of another vessel with cranes that will lift the containment device and lower it 5,000 feet to the seabed.

STAN SPANGLE SR: Monuments mark America’s sacrifices around the world. TOMORROW

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


The drive to work hard made this country great There was an old song that went something like, “He’s an old hippie, he don’t know what to do. Should he hang on to the past, should he go on with the new?” I find it easier to live in the past when things were less complicated. You could walk the street without fear of being robbed, leave your doors unlocked and knew your neighbors would help you if you needed them. Movies and songs were decent. Cartoons I watched then didn’t exploit sex and cursing. Never heard of crack, meth or pot. The thrill was a six-pack. You could drink at 18 because people were raised with morals. Most teenagers worked to help their parents and to buy a nice car. We learned responsibility by being obedient and not ask for welfare. I guess you would say we believed if you were able, you worked or did without. That’s what made this a great country. Look at where it’s headed with its evil and handouts. Ask God to come back.

Don’t fret over bridge contract ost of us should be rejoicing that contracts have been let for the $136 million first phase of the Interstate 85 bridge replacement over the Yadkin River, especially with the new completion date being set for January 2013. The 880-foot-long bridge was constructed of steel girders with a reinforced concrete substructure and a concrete deck with an asphalt overlay in 1955. Classified by the N.C. Department of Transportation as “structurally deficient” yet still structurally sound, the span carries an average of 60,000 vehicles daily, with approximately 25 percent being heavy truck traffic. The first phase includes replacing the four-lane span with an eight-lane bridge, reconstructing the interchange of I-85 at N.C. 150 in southern Davidson County, widening about three miles of I-85 from four lanes to eight lanes in northern Rowan County and building walls to limit the impact of vehicular noise. There is grumbling because FlatironLane, a joint venture of Flatiron Constructors Inc. from Colorado and Lane Construction Corp. from Florida, will be guiding the work instead of companies from North Carolina. While there are one-and-one-half scores of highway contractors in North Carolina, no more than a few would be able to take on such a project and file competitive bids. Flatiron-Lane won the bidding competition and, as in war, to the victor goes the spoils. Regardless, one of the contractors said earlier this week that the project will create some 200 jobs, and a goal of 10 percent participation by minority and female-owned subcontractors has been set. So North Carolinians should be getting a lot of the action. Perhaps North Carolina companies will be able to provide contract-winning bids on the second and final phase of the project – widening about 3.5 miles of I-85 to just north of Business Interstate 85 in Davidson County and reconstructing the interchange at I-85 and Belmont Road at a cost estimated between $120 million and $130 million. Meanwhile, rejoice in what we already have and will receive in the future and move on rather than grumble about what we didn’t get or the 21⁄2-year inconvenience we’ll face while the old bridge is dismantled and the new one is in place and ready to use.

An independent newspaper

Just blame it all on those dogged liberals


aybe you remember Pavlov. For those who slept through Psych 101, Ivan Petrovich Pavlov was a Russian physiologist famous for his research into what came to be called the conditioned reflex. Pavlov taught a hungry dog to associate the ringing of a bell with the sight of food. After a while, that sound would cause the dog to salivate even when there was no food in sight. Pavlov proved an animal could be trained to respond automatically to a given stimulus. American Spectator is about to prove it again. As reported by Media Matters, the liberal media watchdog group, that conservative magazine recently sent an e-mail to subscribers, begging for $26,000 to cover a “shortfall created by the perverse incentives of the liberal agenda.” The note never bothered to explain what perverse incentives it meant, so I asked publisher Alfred Regnery, who wrote it. He told me the price he pays for paper is about to rise to cover increased labor, health care and tax costs anticipated under the liberal gang now running Washington. Higher paper prices? I ran that by The Miami Herald’s Vice President of Operations Craig Woischwill, i.e., the guy who buys the paper. “Pricing’s not too bad right now,” he said. “Little bit of upward pressure. It was higher about a year and a half ago.” How much higher? “At the end of 2008, newsprint was around $700 a ton. At the end of 2009, it was around $480. Right now, we’re around $515.” And what of the role of perverse liberal incentives in that fluctuation? Woischwill laughed. Paper prices go up and down due to supply and demand, he said. In other words, the free market at work. Imagine that. Not that I’m here to argue the price of paper. No, I’m here to parse Regnery’s incantation of one word: liberal. Conservative pols and pundits have done an astonishing job of rendering that word a synonym for a kind of birth defect that leaves one effete and nonsensical, even as they made “conservative” interchangeable with the healthy patriotism of the common folk. If you didn’t know better, you’d never know liberals fought to end segregation and child labor

– or that conservatives opposed them. This is not to say conservatives have never been right (“Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall”) or liberals wrong (“Let’s bomb Afghanistan with butter”). Rather, it is to note OPINION how successful conservatives have been in redefining those Leonard terms for their own use – and Pitts in getting people to respond to ■■■ them in predictable ways. The byproduct of this chicanery is seen in the troubled political fortunes of Florida Gov. Charlie Crist and Arizona Sen. John McCain, conservative Republicans forced to, on the one hand, leave the party and on the other, reverse long-held positions. Because in an era where ideology equals identity, their tendency to sometimes think an independent thought is heresy. The byproduct is also evident in American political discourse, which increasingly takes place in alternate realities, spewing forth great clouds of words that say nothing. But if these are hard times for independent thinkers and political discourse, they are boom times for politicians, pundits – and publishers – who have mastered the simpleminded Pavlovian politi-speak of the day: conservative, good; liberal, evil. It’s telling that even liberals don’t use the word liberal any more. It’s also telling that American Spectator felt no need to mount even a dubious argument about paper prices in asking readers for $26,000; it was sufficient to say the magazine was under siege from – ugh – liberals. And I have no doubt their readers will come through. One is reminded of Pavlov’s poor dog, salivating helplessly whenever the bell was rung. Though I suppose the comparison is unfair in a way. After all, “dogs” can’t reason. LEONARD PITTS JR., winner of the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for commentary, is a columnist for the Miami Herald.

End-of-grade tests have their pluses and minuses


Resentment of those who succeed breeds racial, ethic violence bottom and rose to prosperity â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the Lebanese in West Africa, the Indians in Fiji, the Armenians in the Ottoman OPINION Empire, for example â&#x20AC;&#x201C; have Thomas likewise been Sowell hated for their â&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  achievements. Being born a sultan or a Rockefeller is not an achievement. Achievements are a reflection on others who may have had similar, and sometimes better, chances but who did not make the most of their chances. Achievements are like a slap across the face to those who are not achieving,

The hatred of people who started at the bottom and worked their way up has far exceeded any hostility toward those who were simply born into wealth. and many people react with the same kind of anger that such an insult would provoke. In our own times, especially, this is not just a spontaneous reaction. Many of our educators, our intelligentsia and our media â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not to mention our politicians â&#x20AC;&#x201C; promote an attitude that other peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s achievements are grievances, rather than examples. When black school children who are working hard in school and succeeding academically are attacked and beaten up by black classmates for â&#x20AC;&#x153;acting white,â&#x20AC;? why

is it surprising that similar hostility is turned against Asian-Americans, who are often achieving academically more so than whites? This attitude is not peculiar to some in the black community or to the United States. The same phenomenon is found among lower-class whites in Britain, where academically achieving white students have been beaten up badly enough by their white classmates to require hospital treatment. These are poisonous and self-destructive consequences of a steady drumbeat of ideological hype about differences that are translated into â&#x20AC;&#x153;disparitiesâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;inequities,â&#x20AC;? provoking envy and resentments under their more prettied-up name of â&#x20AC;&#x153;social justice.â&#x20AC;? Asian-American school children who are beaten up are just some of the victims of these resentments that are whipped up. Young people who are seething with resentments, instead of seizing educational and other opportunities around them, are bigger victims in the long run, whether they are blacks in the U.S. or lower-class whites in the U.K. A decade after these beatings, these AsianAmericans will be headed up in the world, while the hoodlums who beat them up are more likely to be headed for crime and prison. People who call differences â&#x20AC;&#x153;inequitiesâ&#x20AC;? and achievements â&#x20AC;&#x153;privilegeâ&#x20AC;? leave social havoc in their wake, while feeling noble about siding with the less fortunate. It would never occur to them that they have any responsibility for the harm done to both blacks and Asian-Americans. THOMAS SOWELL, a native of North Carolina, is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305. His Web site is


s every school in North Carolina approaches the end-of-grade tests that begin next week (some have already begun this week), there are mixed feelings all around about the nature and validity of these tests. I, too, have mixed feelings about them. There are some aspects of them I like and some I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. I like the accountability for teachers, students and their parents that the tests instill. We should expect academic growth from our students. Each school year should produce a good outcome just as we expect each surgery we have to produce a good outcome for us physically. All children can and should experience growth over the course of spending 180 days in one of our schools or something is wrong. I also like that these tests raise the level of concern on the part of all of us. It is vital that we all â&#x20AC;&#x201C; teachers, students and parents â&#x20AC;&#x201C; give education top priority, and sometimes test scores serve the purpose of causing us to look more closely at what a student should know and be able to do. I also like the set-up of the tests. Although there was talk of the first take being the one that counted no matter what happened on the retest, that is not the case this year, and I am happy about that. Instead, if a student does not pass the first time, they can retake the test and the better of their two scores will count. I think that is only fair. There are aspects of the endof-grade tests that I do not like, however. First, one measure cannot possibly reflect accurately the progress a student has made in a school year.

Much more data is needed. At what levels did the student begin the year? How much growth have they shown? How was LESSONS that measured? LEARNED The EOGs do give one snapPaula shot of academic Williams success, but that â&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  is all. Students and their progress are more complicated than that. It takes multiple measures to get the big and individualized picture needed. Then there is the marathon nature of the test. How many 8-year-olds do you know who can sit and read for three hours at a time with few breaks in between? How many can sit still long enough to answer 60 math problems at one time? EOGs are a measure of perseverance as much as anything. The stress that these tests invoke is also a negative. Some students have â&#x20AC;&#x153;test anxiety.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very real, and it tends to skew their results because they get so upset and overwhelmed by the magnitude of the test. Like them or not, the EOGs are here to stay, at least for the foreseeable future. I know that much hard work has gone into this 2009-2010 school year by thousands of students, teachers and parents in Guilford County. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hope it pays off next week.

This is especially painful for those who expected that the election of Barack Obama would mark the beginning of a postracial America. While Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s winning the majority of the votes in overwhelmingly white states suggests that many Americans are ready to move beyond race, it is painfully clear that others are not. Those who explain racial antagonisms on some rationalistic basis will have a hard time demonstrating how Asian-Americans have made blacks worse off. Certainly none of the historic wrongs done to blacks was done by the small Asian-American population who, for most of their history in this country, have not had enough clout to prevent themselves from being discriminated against. While ugly racial or ethnic conflicts can seldom be explained by rational economic or other self-interest, they have been too common to be just inexplicable oddities â&#x20AC;&#x201C; whether in America or in other countries around the world, and whether today or in centuries past. Resentments and hostility toward people with higher achievements are one of the most widespread of human failings. Resentments of achievements are more deadly than envy of wealth. The hatred of people who started at the bottom and worked their way up has far exceeded any hostility toward those who were simply born into wealth. Inheritors of the Rockefeller fortune have been elected as popular governors in three states, attracting nothing like the hostility toward the Jewish immigrants who rose from poverty on Manhattanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lower East Side to prosperity in a variety of fields. Others who started at the

Search finds letter to victim in lacrosse slaying


Smoke billows from the AGE Refinery Wednesday in San Antonio, Texas. An 18-wheeler being loaded with fuel at the refinery has exploded, setting off a chain reaction of smaller blasts and leaving some workers hurt.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A search of the apartment of a man charged with killing a University of Virginia lacrosse player has uncovered a red-stained jersey and a letter to the victim. The Charlottesville Daily Progress reports the items were taken from 22-year-old George Huguelyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s apartment during a search on Monday by Charlottesville police. Huguely has been charged in the death of 22-year-old Yeardley

Love. The U.Va. seniorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s battered body was found early Monday morning by her Love roommate and the roommateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boyfriend. The Progress reports that police recovered two laptop computers, a notebook and other items from Huguelyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s apartment. Huguely is also a U.Va. senior and university lacrosse player.

Truck explodes at Texas refinery; driver missing



Ailing Bret Michaels describes hemorrhage LOS ANGELES â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Poison frontman Bret Michaels thought a burglar shot him in the back of the head when he suffered a brain hemorrhage last month. The outspoken 47-yearold contestant on NBCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Celebrity Apprenticeâ&#x20AC;? was in intensive care for nearly two weeks in Phoenix. Michaels tells People magazine that the subarachnoid hemorrhage â&#x20AC;&#x153;sounded like a handgunâ&#x20AC;? and made his mind go almost blank. He says his neck tensed up to the point that he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t move his head.

Several employees were treated at the scene and everyone except the driver of the truck that exploded was accounted for, Hood said.

Residents within a halfmile radius of the refinery were evacuated and Hood urged those with respiratory illnesses to remain inside as smoke rose in a large black column from the site. San Antonio fire spokeswoman Deborah Foster said fire crews sprayed foam to tamp down the flames because water is useless against a petroleum fire. They were bringing more foam in as fast as possible, but Foster

The winning ticket matched all six numbers drawn in Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s multistate game â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 9, 21, 31, 36

said the fire could burn for some time if crews couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t reach the shutoff valves. More than 100 firefighters were on the scene, and Hood said commanders would have to move to avoid smoke as the weather changed later in the day. Foster said allowing the fire to burn out on its own would be a difficult call because the smoke was black and acrid and there was a cluster of apartment buildings nearby.

HIGH POINT — It seems that High Point’s restaurant scene has struck gold — again. The Golden B, a wellknown eatery that operated in High Point for almost 30 years before it closed in 2001, is being re-opened by its original owners in the Times Square complex at the corner of N. Main Street and Lexington Avenue. Originally located at the intersection at Church Avenue and Elm Street, the restaurant was operated by James “Cush” Bocholis Jr. as a favorite downtown lunch spot. It closed when the owners of the building, First Baptist Church, converted the property into a youth ministry facility. Since that time, Bocholis experienced a roller-coaster ride of ups and downs that


The Golden B is set to reopen on N. Main Street with owners Vickie and James Bocholis. included opening more restaurants, filing for bankruptcy, battling depression and working various jobs. Most recently, Bocholis and his brother and sister opened the Bistro B on S. Main Street in Kernersville. “It has been an adventure.

It really has,” said Bocholis about the last nine years. “Opening the Bistro B wet my appetite again.” During his time away from the restaurant business, Bocholis managed a Waffle House in Hillsborough and worked at a K&W

Cafeteria in Greensboro. He enjoyed the jobs, but there was one problem. “At the same time, I hated it because it wasn’t my own,” he said. Bocholis said the restaurant should open at the end of May or at the end of June in the 2,400-square-foot space formerly occupied by Reed’s Tea Room and Pomodoro Restaurant. The space is undergoing minor renovations including fresh paint and new carpet. The Golden B will offer items from its original menu including meat loaf, a mesquite chicken salad and homemade soups. New items also will be added, including pulled pork dishes. It will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Bocholis will run the establishment with his wife, Vickie, and sons, Derek and Jason. The best part about the pro-

cess so far, he said, is hearing from former customers who are excited about the restaurant’s return. “That’s what has been so humbling about all of this,” he said. “In the years we’ve been out of the business, we would run into people who told us how good our food was and how they missed us. It feels nice to be able to come back home.”

It’s in the books Tabernacle students reap reward from hard work BY DARRICK IGNASIAK ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

RANDOLPH COUNTY – Days after winning the second annual Randolph County Schools Elementary Battle of the Books, Tabernacle Elementary students were still excited about the victory Wednesday. “It felt great because it was only our first

The other students were Dylan Cline, Morgen Faith English, Skyler Lavway, Corbin Norris, Matthew Parker, MacKenzie Pitt, Thomas Wagoner, Karsan Winslow and Crista Wyrocki. “It was really all due to the kids,” Trena Cox, Tabernacle media specialist, said of the

school’s title. “They had a list of books, so they were reading the books and we had practice sessions, where we would ask questions. They read the books and studied and worked hard. I think that’s why we had the success.” According to Cox, the Battle of the Books competition came down to one question. Tabernacle Elementary won the competition by two

points over Archdale Elementary, which also was taking part in the Battle of the Books for the first time. Franklinville Elementary, one of eight teams competing in the competition, finished third. Cox, who coached the team along with Peggy Tilley, said about 25 kids tried out for this year’s Battle of the Books team. With the school winning the competition, she ex-

pects more interest from students next year. “The kids really didn’t know a lot about it, but now since they have seen their classmates have success and they know a little bit more about the process, I think we will have kids in fourth and fifth grade who want to come back and do it again,” Cox said. | 888-3657

Traffic stop leads to theft, drug charges BY PAT KIMBROUGH ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

DAVIDSON COUNTY – Three people face various property crime and drug charges after a sheriff’s deputy located incriminating evidence during a traffic stop. The Davidson County Sheriff’s Office on Friday

received a complaint from a resident about a suspicious vehicle in the Sunset Road area. A Breaking and Entering Task Force officer located the vehicle about five minutes after the call and stopped it on N.C. 150 north. The officer spotted what appeared to be marijuana inside and subse-

quently searched the car, which yielded evidence related to a recent area break-in, according to the sheriff’s office. Deputies arrested the car’s three occupants and identified them as Shyquan Jose Collins, 18, Charles Darnell Perry, 19, and Kenard Rasean Gamble, 20, all of Winston-Salem.

They each were charged with breaking and entering, larceny after breaking and entering, possession of stolen goods, injury to real property and possession of a schedule VI controlled substance, according to the sheriff’s office. All of the suspects were booked into the Davidson County Jail under $200,000


bonds. They have appearances scheduled for May 24 in Davidson County District Court. According to the sheriff’s office, deputies “are continuing to investigate the possible involvement of these suspects in other break-ins.” | 888-3531

CHARLOTTE (AP) – Several high school students in North Carolina face citations and school suspensions after being accused of drinking vodka on a prom bus rented by a local school board member. The Charlotte Observer reported that Rhonda Lennon is a member of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg school board who rented the bus to take 34 North Mecklenburg High School students from dinner to the prom Saturday. Lennon says she rented the bus so the teens wouldn’t be driving. Among those charged with underage drinking is Lennon’s daughter, whom Lennon says was suspended for 10 days. She says authorities acted properly.

Former deputy gets sentence reduced


Hasty Elementary students help needy The Student Council members at Hasty Elementary School coordinated a weeklong food drive recently. As an incentive, the grade level that brought in the most items will enjoy a Friday afternoon of planned activities and exercise. Nearly 900 canned or boxed items were donated to the Cooperative Community Ministry in Thomasville. Student Council advisers are Erin Tolan and Rhonda Florence. Jane Withers is the principal. Student Council members shown loading donations include Caleb Spainhour (from left), Joey Jones, Katie Reynolds, Logan Embler, Kayla Powell, Erica Saintsing, Riley Berrier and Abigail Rankin.

RALEIGH (AP) — A judge has cut in half the sentence of a former Robeson County sheriff’s lieutenant, marking the second time a law enforcement officer involved in the same corruption investigation has gotten a reduced sentence. Multiple media outlets reported that Charles Strickland, 43, was sentenced Tuesday to 40 months behind bars, plus three years of supervised release. Strickland is now scheduled for release in 2011. The new sentence is still about a year harsher than recommended. U.S. District Court Judge Louise Flanagan, who sentenced Strickland, said she wanted to send the message that “people who hold supervisory positions such as you

aren’t above the law.” A six-year federal investigation known as Operation Tarnished Badge resulted in Strickland, who was head of the drug unit, being charged with leading a corrupt division. Deputies in Strickland’s unit were accused of stealing property from drug dealers, assaulting suspects and satellite piracy, among other crimes. Strickland, who resigned in 2003, pleaded guilty in 2008 to conspiracy to commit money laundering in a plea agreement that dropped several other charges against him.

ear Abby: “Just Clumsy in Amarillo” (March 24) could be my twin. I am also a klutz who bruises easily. Years ago, when I was a brand-new EMT, my arms were so bruised and purple from lifting stretchers that co-workers started asking if my husband was beating me. Luckily, my husband, a submariner, was on patrol at that time so it let him off the hook. My husband used to tell me the only reason he didn’t worry too much about me at work was because I wore steel-toed boots, and he suggested I buy steel-toed flip-flops and slippers. I can walk through the house and trip over nothing at all. I once broke all the toes on one foot sliding off an exam table in a doctor’s office. Tell “Clumsy” to hang in there. She’s not alone.

As long as she can keep a sense of humor about her condition, she’ll be fine. – Another Klutz in Utah Dear Another Klutz: I received many responses regarding being accidentprone. While many readers shared their “graceless” moments, others pointed out that it could be caused by a medical problem. Read on: Dear Abby: I have an inherited neuromuscular disorder called CharcotMarie-Tooth disease, also known as CMT. It is also

called motor sensory neuropathy or peroneal muscular atrophy. CMT affects the ADVICE peripheral nerves. A Dear common Abby symptom is ■■■ short wide feet with very high arches, weak ankles, and tripping over our own feet. Falling UP the stairs is what we do best. At family reunions, we sit around comparing our funny feet and the bruises from our frequent falls. ‘’Clumsy” should see a neurologist for nerve conduction testing. The extent of her frequent “accidents” and bruising is not normal, and she needs to know what the problem is. – Esther, An R.N. in Idaho Dear Abby: You were right to tell “Clumsy” that she shouldn’t avoid her friends as that would only increase their suspicions. However, she also needs to include her fiance more in their social activities. If her friends get to know him and discover that he is a kind and compassionate person who respects boundaries and knows how to control his temper, their suspicions of abuse will be allayed. – Carla in Virginia Dear Abby: As a child, my mother always chided me to “watch out, pay attention and look

where you are going.” I had bruises all over from bumping into things. At 45, I learned from an ophthalmologist that I had NO depth perception. Now I understand why I must look down when stepping off curbs or drive five car lengths behind other cars, etc. “Clumsy” needs to get a thorough eye exam and have her depth perception measured. – Made Sense Of It Dear Abby: I am 31 and have been clumsy all my life. I have fallen on ice a few times this winter, even though I tried to be very cautious. Thankfully, I have sustained only some bruises and a few pulled muscles – no broken bones. I, too, have seen the looks, rolled eyes and heard the sighs of concerned friends. It’s hard not to become defensive when your friends might have a negative perception of your husband. I just smile and make playful reference to the fact that this has been going on far longer than I’ve known my husband. To “Clumsy”: Drink plenty of milk to keep your bones strong, and maintain a lighthearted attitude when the subject comes up. – Not-so-gracie in New York

Soliosis doesn’t end athletics


ear Dr. Donohue: Our 14-year-old daughter was checked for scoliosis at her school, and they sent a note to us saying she has it. She is scheduled to see a doctor. We’re worried sick about this. Our daughter is a very active young woman and into many sports. Does this put an end to her athletics? Will she need surgery? We need some answers. – R. and M.T.


Hold on. Your daughter might not need treatment. Surgery is performed only in a small number of cases. She’s likely to be permitted to continue with an active sports life. Scoliosis is a bending of the spine to the right or left. If the bend is in the upper back, the chest area, it’s called thoracic scoliosis. If it’s in the lower back, it’s lumbar scoliosis. Only 10 percent of children ever require treatment. Let me say that differently: Ninety percent never need treatment. What dictates the course of action is the angle of curvature. Since all this is new to you, you must not have detected anything wrong with her back. That suggests she has only a slight curve. That kind of curve is observed for changes. Slight curves, which the majority have, don’t preclude sports participation. A less upbeat prognosis holds for scoliosis discovered at ages younger than 12 and a curvature of greater than 20 degrees. As far as I can see, neither criterion applies

Pacino takes on Kevorkian’s story LYNN ELBER AP TELEVISION WRITER


OS ANGELES – Barry Levinson was preparing to direct HBO’s new film about Jack Kevorkian when a family crisis brought home the entrenched power of the assisted-suicide advocate’s name. Levinson’s father-in-law, hospitalized after a massive stroke, was unable to speak and in obvious distress. A nurse was asked to give him medication for relief but refused, saying he was not due for another dose. Pressed to help, the nurse snapped back: “Well, you know, I’m not Dr. Kevorkian.” The stereotype of “Dr. Death,” as some tagged Kevorkian, shortcuts the man who crusaded for a patient’s right to die, Levinson said. “You Don’t Know Jack,” starring a barely recognizable Al Pacino as the gray-haired, bespectacled Kevorkian, sketches in the details with an unsparing look at the doctor who served more than eight years in prison for his role in the death of a terminally ill man. “A movie about euthanasia wouldn’t interest me,” said Levinson (Academy Award winner for “Rain Man”). “It was the complexity of the character and how surprising he is. ... It’s Jack Kevorkian a very odd, quirky character, up against a perception of him that gets blown out of perspective.” Joining Pacino in a rare TV appearance are Brenda Vaccaro as Kevorkian’s stalwart sister, Margo; John Goodman as his equally loyal friend, Neal Nicol; Danny Huston, playing flamboyant attorney Geoffrey Fieger; and Susan Sarandon as Hemlock Society activist Janet Good. The film, written by Adam Mazar, debuted Saturday on HBO. Pacino and Levinson acknowledge that, until embarking on the project, their knowledge of the retired Michigan pathologist was limited to memories of him as an absorbing news story. “I knew about the cause and what he believed in, but not about him. That’s what intrigued me,” Levinson said. He was able to educate himself with a wealth of video, including wrenching tapes Kevorkwian made of the many sick and dying, asking for and, on occasion, gaining, his life-ending help. After scrutinizing some 50 hours of film, Pacino said he and Levinson agreed that “there’s something there” – the material for a drama, not a polemic, that could be both engaging and provocative. Starting in the late 1980s, Kevorkian put his beliefs into action by offering “death counseling” to the terminally ill. Challenging authorities to make his deeds legal or arrest him, he claimed to have given at least 130 people the medical means to kill themselves. Then

he pushed harder on a 1998 “60 Minutes” broadcast. Kevorkian provided a video showing him taking the life of a patient with Lou Gehrig’s disease, a fatal disorder of the neuromuscular system, that led to his second-degree murder conviction in Michigan. He was paroled in 2007 at age 79. While he was insistent in hammering his doctrine, “You Don’t Know Jack” and its cast are not. The lifeand-death drama offers understated performances from Pacino and his co-stars that are matched by cinematography with a resolute realism; the film is all the more powerful for it. HBO recognized that the project was a different story with “dangerous elements,” said Len Amato, president of HBO Films. “We were not just taking on Jack’s story or the surrounding issues, but the thematic idea of mortality. It’s a challenge to try to make a film that deals with those aspects and still draws an audience in,” Amato said. Pacino did not meet Kevorkian before filming, counter to his approach in playing another real-life figure, former New York City police officer Frank Serpico, for 1973’s “Serpico.” But he has talked to Kevorkian since and found the doctor complimentary about “You Don’t Know Jack.” Levinson said he was intrigued by Kevorkian’s response to the film when he screened it for him. “He didn’t talk about himself at all. He said, ‘Wonderful editing.’ He was talking in those terms, as opposed to this was his life,” the filmmaker said, describing a reaction that was analytical rather than emotional. The film demands both responses from viewers. In one difficult scene, Kevorkian has crafted a makeshift device aimed at taking a life while conserving the deadly chemicals that he is having trouble obtaining. Initial efforts go terribly awry. When the camera pans framed photos from the would-be suicide’s life, they are a heart-stopping reminder of who the man is and what is at stake. Kevorkian’s video records are woven into “You Don’t Know Jack,” with Pacino’s image replacing that of the doctor. Permission was obtained from family members to use the footage, although it legally belongs to Kevorkian, HBO said. Al Pacino Lydia Dean Pilcher, an executive producer for “You Don’t Know Jack,” said she hopes the film prompts debate about Kevorkian, what he has wrought and where society goes from here. With people living longer, facing debilitating diseases and an overburdened health care system, the issue is reframed again. “How do you define compassion? I hope that what we’ve done in telling this story will take it to the next level of discussion,” Pilcher said.

‘Southland’ renewed for another season TNT

Regina King and Maximiliano Hernandez in scene from “Southland.”

NEW YORK (AP) – TNT will air another season of “Southland,” the Los Angeles-based police drama that the cable network picked up when it was dumped by NBC. The network said it has ordered 10 new episodes of the series, to air starting next January.

It’s produced by John Wells, who has “ER” and “The West Wing” on his resume. NBC dropped the series just before it was to begin a second season in what appeared to be a cost-cutting move. But TNT resurrected it, making six new episodes that have aired this spring.

“Southland” is working on a model common to cable television, where a “season” of new episodes is shorter than that made by broadcast networks. It focuses on the life of police officers and gang members, often shot on location in Los Angeles.

Eight seasons in, “24” was 86’d. But cast and crew were still counting their blessings at the drama series’ finale party. By the time the last episode airs on May 24, there will have been nearly 200 hours of “24.” To date, there have been 18 Emmy wins. “I think over the course of the eight years, we’ve had 16 marriages and 30-something children have been born,” said star Kiefer Sutherland, who portrays federal agent Jack Bauer on the series. “We were like a family. So, it’s very hard to say goodbye.” Dozens of the show’s cast and crew members joined Sutherland to celebrate in Hollywood Friday night. Sad as the end may be, Sutherland said the time is right. “It was a lot of different things. It’s a very, very difficult show to write. And (executive producer) Howard Gordon . . . normally halfway through the season will say, ’I’ve got a great idea for next year.’ And he just wasn’t feeling it. And all his energy was focused on this season eight. He said, ’This is where I feel it should end, and we should be making the films.’ ” The “24” feature film, still in development, will stray from the show’s format in at least one key way: It won’t take 24 hours to tell its story of a day in the life of Jack Bauer.






COMMUNICATION South had one more problem than he realized: whether to win the first trick. South should play low to break the East-West communication if West has five hearts (likely). West wins the heart return and leads a third heart, and South wins and lets the jack of spades ride. As the cards lie, South wins 10 tricks. But even if East had the queen of spades and king of diamonds, South would be safe.




In the movies, the hero faces one problem at a time. Bridge is like real life, which can dump a wheelbarrow full of problems on you all at once. Today’s declarer saw problems at 3NT. After he captured East’s queen of hearts with the king, South had nine tricks if he guessed the queen of spades or if the diamond finesse won. Since South didn’t want East in to return a heart, he finessed in spades through East: South took the king and let the ten ride. West won and led a diamond, and when South finessed, East won and led a heart. Down two. “Too many problems,” South said.




DAILY QUESTION You hold: S Q 8 5 H A 10 8 7 3 D 7 3 2 C 8 4. Your partner opens one diamond, you respond one heart and he bids one spade. The opponents pass. What do you say? ANSWER: This decision is close. Your partner’s nonjump change of suit is not forcing, and you have a minimum response. Still, your six points consist of an ace and a useful queen. If you’re not vulnerable, pass. If vulnerable, keep your game chances alive by returning to two diamonds. South dealer N-S vulnerable

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.

Music review: New Lonestar loses its originality MICHAEL MCCALL ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER

Lonestar, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Party Heard Around The Worldâ&#x20AC;? (Saguaro Road) On â&#x20AC;&#x153;Party Heard Around The World,â&#x20AC;? Lonestarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first album in four years, the revamped country band tries to forge a future by

shifting away from its past. With new vocalist Cody Collins replacing Richie McDonald, who left Lonestar for a solo career, the band has discarded its emphasis on power ballads (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Amazed,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m Already Thereâ&#x20AC;?) and family oriented material (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mr. Momâ&#x20AC;?). No lon-

ger portraying themselves as content fathers relaxing on the front porch, Lonestar now prefers combing clubs and beachfronts for love and good times. Old hands Michael Britt (guitar), Keech Rainwater (drums), and Dean Sams (keyboards) assume control of the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s desti-

ny, co-producing the album with Collins and writing eight of its 10 songs. The result emphasizes energy (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Y.O.U.â&#x20AC;?) and positive vibes (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Live Laugh and Loveâ&#x20AC;?), but fails to establish a distinctive personality or sound. Collins injects youthful energy, but he delivers each song

in the same manner, so thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s little shift in emotion no matter what the lyrics say. The band doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help, locking into thin, mechanical beats and generic guitar chords that lack identifiable hooks. In leaping into the future, Lonestar left behind what made the band stand out.

Bisher enjoys homecoming T

he din during the dinner hour of the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association banquet easily drowned out the music playing in Salisbury’s historic train depot. Out of nowhere, silence descended upon the room. And there they stood, two legends in their field conversing and cracking jokes like old friends while those around them sat open-mouthed, forks frozen in the SPORTS air. One face was Steve known to all: golfer Hanf Arnold Palmer. ■■■ The man he came to see at the table? Furman Bisher, a member of the NSSA Hall of Fame who also happened to win the award Monday night as Georgia’s Sportswriter of the Year. “I’m already in the Hall of Fame,” Bisher said before the event began. “I had been voting for other people in the state and I said, ‘How the heck did this happen?’ So, I decided to come back. My swansong.” If so, it was quite an evening for the 91-year-old writer who hails from Denton and wrote for The High Point Enterprise from March of 1938 to May of 1939. After that, Bisher launched a storybook career at the Atlanta Journal Constitution and also wrote for Sports Illustrated, The Sporting News, The Saturday Evening Post and countless other publications. Bisher teamed with Hank Aaron to pen the slugger’s biography and also laid claim to the only interview Shoeless Joe Jackson ever gave regarding the 1919 Black Sox scandal. Bisher retired – but kept writing. He covered his 61st Masters this spring and still writes a weekly column distributed across the state. “I retired, but I didn’t quit,” Bisher said. “I write when I feel in the mood.” Chiming in with a bright smile was his wife of 25 years, Lynda: “He’s feeling moved twice a week – at least.” The trip to Salisbury for the awards ceremony came with the added benefit of a visit home. Bisher said he spent the weekend in Denton with his sister Helen – she’s 96 – and a number of nieces and nephews. And as only someone who was

Monday night’s awards ceremony in Salisbury for the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association included legendary figures Furman Bisher (left) and Arnold Palmer. The 91-year-old Bisher is a Denton native who wrote for The High Point Enterprise in the 1930s. Palmer, now 80 years old, attended the event to introduce national sportscaster winner Jim Nantz. born in Denton in 1918 could say: “The town has been spoiled by growth,” Bisher said. “When you grow up in a town like that, you never outgrow it.”

PALMER CHIMES IN For all the professional writers and broadcasters gathered Monday, they still acted like kids at Christmas when Palmer appeared. The golfer popped into town to introduce Jim Nantz, the CBS broadcaster who was named the national sportscaster of the year. When they arrived together, crowds flocked, cameras and phones came out and hushed conversations began around the room. A few reporters were able to catch up with Palmer just before Monday’s ceremony. No, he hasn’t played golf anywhere in the Salisbury area. Yes, he was happy to be back near Wake Forest and anticipated that he might “probably see some of my old friends around.” No

he wasn’t staying long – he and Nantz were going to Augusta National the next day, to “play a little golf.” Mixed in with the chitchat with the 80-year-old was a question about Tiger Woods. What did Palmer think of the golfer’s chance of playing up to his old standards following last winter’s sex scandal and self-imposed sabbatical? “I don’t think it will take very long. Just don’t count him out – he’s tough,” Palmer offered. “He’ll come back, he’ll win and he’ll be very difficult to beat. But, at the same time, maybe he’ll stop, take a look at things and maybe approach it a little differently now.”

NEW MAN IN CHARGE Last May, Dave Goren showed up in Salisbury to accept the award as Sportscaster of the Year for North Carolina. The plaque was nice. Too bad he didn’t have an office wall on which to hang it.

Goren spent 20 years at WXII, Channel 12, out of Winston-Salem before being down-sized from a shrinking sports department. It was while he was in Salisbury to accept his award that someone on the board recommended he apply for the vacant executive director post. “The more I thought about this organization, saw how I was treated, saw how all the other people were treated – who wouldn’t want to be involved with this?” Goren reasoned. He joined up last September, tasked with fundraising, marketing and organization, increasing membership and involving the community. Monday’s event – attended by more than 300 people from across the country – drew rave reviews. “I had more fun tonight than as a winner last year,” the new host said. “It’s a huge challenge, but I jump out of bed every morning because I like challenges.” | 888-3526

holes in golf or among the most beloved. Exciting? Usually. Pivotal? Sometimes. It is part of one of the more dynamic closing stretches on the PGA Tour, coming after the reachable par-5 16th with water framing the right side of the final 200 yards, and before the tough 18th hole, where the wind typically comes in from the left off a lake that runs down the entire side of the hole. “But 17 is the one because there is glory and some

We want rington said. “And we all, to see the highs and lows as spectators, that’s what and the emotions. You’ll

see a lot of them on 17.” There should be plenty of action, for sure, when The Players Championship gets under way today. The PGA Tour’s version of a major championship has all the ingredients for a big show this year. Phil Mickelson has a chance to go to No. 1 in the world for the first time in his career, provided Tiger Woods finishes out of the top five. Woods has made that possibility seem even more real by missing the cut last week at Quail Hollow.





Players tourney possesses elements for big show PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (AP) – Padraig Harrington would be among the thousands of fans surrounding the island green on the TPC Sawgrass if he came to The Players Championship as a spectator instead of a three-time major champion. Is there any other place to watch? Perhaps no other golf course is more defined by a single hole than the par-3 17th at the Players Stadium Course, which is not to suggest it’s one of the great


his year’s NBA playoff schedule reminds me of the old joke about Sugar Daddy candy. You can start eating a Sugar Daddy on Monday and not finish until Sunday. I won’t even begin to discuss the damage that treat could do to your teeth. But I digress. Apparently, the NBA also likes to stretch things out a la the Sugar Daddy. Take the Lakers-Jazz best-of-7 Western Conference semifinal series.

Game 1 was Sunday in Los Angeles, with Game 2 on Tuesday in LA. The teams enjoy a nice three-day break before Game 3 on Saturday in Salt Lake City. Game 4 is Monday in Utah, with Game 5 set for Wednesday in Los Angeles. Game 6, if needed, would be Friday, May 14 in Utah. Another two-day break would follow before Game 7 on May 17 in Los Angeles. I understand the travel constraints and realize television likes to extend the NBA magic as long as possible for financial reasons.

But should it really take 15 days to play a best-of-7 second-round playoff series? For the record, the other three series offer similar seven-game time frames. ClevelandBoston features a 15-day window, with a potential maximum of 13 days for the SpursSuns and a downright speedy 12-day schedule for the Hawks-Magic. But don’t worry. Those June NBA Finals will be here before you know it.



Tim Tebow already leads the NFL in one category: jersey sales. His Denver Broncos No. 15 was by far the most popular on the NFL’s website for April. His celebrity clearly trumps the debate over whether he’ll ever make it as an NFL quarterback after winning the Heisman Trophy and two national championships at Florida. Tebow is, at best, third on Denver’s depth chart at QB. But the 25th pick of the first round still had the best-selling rookie jersey since the NFL started keeping track in 2006. Thirty percent of the orders came from Florida. The Broncos were tops in the league in merchandise sales on in April after ranking 10th for the year ending March 31.

NCHSAA says bye bye to football bye ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORTS

NCHSAA BOARD MEETING CHAPEL HILL â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The football season and winter sports seasons were shortened by a week for the upcoming years in action taking by the N.C. High School Athletic Association Board of Directors at its two-day spring meeting that concluded Wednesday. Starting with the 201112 academic year, football teams will play 11 regularseason games in 11 weeks (including the Endowment game, which is optional) rather than the current 12week format. The Endowment game also would be dropped for playoff seeding purposes. And starting this year, the winter sports season will lose one week of competition, with practices still allowed to start Nov. 1. In other matters, the Board also added a â&#x20AC;&#x153;podâ&#x20AC;? seeding format to the football playoffs beginning this year, which means schools would be grouped into four different sections (East, Mideast, Midwest, West) to help reduce long trips under the current format. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Opt-outâ&#x20AC;? declarations also may be issued for schools that do not wish to enter the NCHSAA playoffs, with a form that would be signed by an athletic director, principal and superintendent and submitted by an established deadline prior to the release of the brackets in that sport. The wrestling state championships will be shifted to a three-day event, with one specific classification to wrestle on Thursday night. And the 2010-13 state cross country championships will be held in Kernersvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Beeson Park.

Bear Stearns execs put in hot seat WASHINGTON (AP) – Members of a special U.S. inquiry panel on Wednesday challenged former Bear Stearns’ executives on their view of what caused the big Wall Street firm to implode two years ago. The executives testified that they did all they could to keep Bear Stearns afloat before it fell victim to an unstoppable run on the bank. Its business strategy of borrowing funds from rival firms was sound under the crimped credit market conditions at the time, they said. “In retrospect I don’t believe that there was anything that Bear Stearns could have done differently with respect to its funding model that



Trade group says service sector grows NEW YORK – The service sector expanded in April, with business activity accelerating at the strongest pace in four years. The Institute for Supply Management, a trade group of purchasing executives, said its service sector index read 55.4 in April, the same level as in March. It’s the fourth straight month of growth.

GM names new US marketing chief NEW YORK – General Motors Co. is replacing its newly named marketing chief with the former head of marketing at Hyundai Motor America, the automaker’s latest change-up of top management. Joel Ewanick will take over as vice president of U.S. marketing from Susan Docherty starting May 24. Docherty previously ran both the sales and marketing divisions at GM.

Oil sinks to near $81 on dollar gains NEW YORK – Oil prices fell to below $81 a barrel Wednesday as the dollar gained strength and a U.S. government report showed that crude supplies rose more than expected. Benchmark crude fell $2.03 to $80.71 a barrel in early afternoon trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange, the second day of sharp declines. ENTERPRISE NEWS SERVICE REPORTS


would have prevent this run on the bank,” said Paul Friedman, who was the firm’s chief operating officer for fixed income. Bear Stearns was the first Wall Street bank to blow up. It was caught in the credit crunch in early 2008 and foreshadowed the cascading financial meltdown in the late part of that year. Unfounded concerns by brokerage customers and rumors in the market about Bear Stearns’ solvency in the week of March 10, 2008, sparked the firm’s collapse, Friedman and other former executives testified. But Phil Angelides, chairman of the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission, pointed to the firm’s mounting dependence on

special loans from other investment banks, known as repurchase agreements. Those loans fell outside the regulated market and added up to $50 billion to $60 billion overnight in the period before the firm failed, Angelides said. “At the end of the day, it almost was the ultimate hand to mouth,” Angelides said. When rival Wall Street firms canceled the agreements and brokerage customers pulled their assets out of Bear Stearns, the firm was pushed to the brink. Said Bill Thomas, the panel’s vice chairman: “You had no fallback to your fallback.” The firm’s business model relied on the trust in it by rivals on Wall Street, he said.

Duke Energy earnings rebound MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

CHARLOTTE – Duke Energy announced a stronger first quarter Tuesday, with its $445 million in earnings a 29 percent improvement over the anemic start to 2009. The company said rate increases, unusually cold winter weather and higher sales – particularly to industries – drove the rebound. Duke earned 34 cents a share compared to 27 cents on $344 million in profit for the first quarter of last year. Analysts surveyed by Thomson Reuters had expected earnings of 32 cents a share. Revenue rose to $3.6 billion from $3.3 billion last year. Electricity sales are viewed as good indicators of how well businesses are performing. “We are seeing signs of economic stabilization, but we are mindful of the high levels of unemploy-

ment that still exist in our service territories,” CEO Jim Rogers said in a statement. In an interview, Rogers cautioned that the first-quarter figures are compared to those of a “disastrous” 2009. He said he hasn’t seen signals that the economy is poised for strong growth, including industries that are large users of electricity. “We continue to believe that the recovery is going to be anemic,” he said, including the prospect of prolonged unemployment. In the Carolinas, industrial sales rose 4.3 percent for the quarter, boosted by a 10.5 percent increase to textile plants. Duke’s system-wide industrial sales had slumped 14 percent for all of 2009, compared to the previous year. Residential sales shot up 13.1 percent after winter brought 22 percent more cold days to the Carolinas than normal.

Woes may hurt Goldman rating NEW YORK (AP) – Fitch Ratings says Goldman Sachs’ recent legal troubles and the evolving regulatory landscape might lead the agency to eventually review the bank’s toptier credit rating. Fitch Ratings, a major credit ratings agency, says in a release Wednesday that it is leaving Goldman’s rating of “A+” alone for now given its strong performance. Fitch noted that Goldman “consis-

tently” outperforms its global banking peers. Fitch says it lowered its long-term view of Goldman’s debt ratings because of the legal issues Goldman is facing, which could hurt its reputation and ability to generate revenue. The SEC has accused Goldman of fraud in its dealings of mortgage securities. The Justice Department has opened a criminal investigation.

Stocks decline on European worries NEW YORK (AP) – The stock market extended its slide Wednesday after investors couldn’t shake their concerns about European countries’ big debt loads. The Dow Jones industrial average ended down about 59 points to put its two-day drop at 284. The Dow halved its loss by the close but finished off its high of the day. Treasury prices rose and pushed down interest rates in the bond market for a second day. A drop in the euro and a rise in the dollar continued to ram markets around the world. The stronger dollar hurts U.S. stocks by cutting into profits of U.S. companies that do business abroad. A higher dollar also hurts commodity prices by reducing demand from foreign buyers. Investors are concerned that a $144 billion aid package for Greece won’t be adequate to keep debt problems in Europe from spreading. There were also questions about whether the bailout would amount to more than a short-term fix for Greece. Investors don’t want the trouble in Greece to spill to other countries and disrupt a global rebound. The Dow fell 58.65, or 0.5 percent, to 10,868.12. It had been up as much as 20 points and down nearly 112 points. The broader Standard & Poor’s 500 index fell 7.73, or 0.7 percent, to 1,165.87, while the Nasdaq composite index fell 21.96, or 0.9 percent, to 2,402.29.

States warned to check WellPoint hikes INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – The Obama administration has asked state regulators to double-check premium hikes from health insurer WellPoint after an audit found problems with proposed California increases. U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius said in a letter to state governors and insurance commissioners they should re-examine any WellPoint rate increases in their states “to the extent you have authority to do so.” Sebelius asked them in the letter, sent Tuesday night, to check whether any “mistaken assumptions” were made in their states. “Even small errors can mean unaffordable premiums for policy-

holders,” the letter said. Last week, WellPoint’s California subsidiary, Anthem Blue Cross, withdrew plans for individual insurance premium increases that averaged about 25 percent after state Insurance Commissioner Steve Poizner said an independent audit found the hike was based on flawed data. Poizner said the application for rate increases – which would have stretched to 39 percent for some customers – contained mathematical errors and double counting of data. WellPoint, based in Indianapolis, said in an e-mail Wednesday it believed the miscalculation was unique to its California individual insurance business.

BP shares rise after oil spill sell-off LONDON (AP) – Shares in BP PLC rose slightly on Wednesday as analysts suggested the 20 billion pound ($30 billion) plummet in the company’s value since the Gulf of Mexico oil spill has been overdone. Analysts said its unlikely that BP will have to cut its dividend as a result of the accident and expect the London-based company’s final cleanup and damages bill to be

lower than the recent loss of share value. Stockbroker Panmure Gordon switched its recommendation from sell to buy, recommending that investors switch out of Royal Dutch Shell into BP for the yield premium. “BP has had a torrid time over the last few days, as the market assesses the potential impact of the spill in the Gulf of Mexico on the company,” it said in a note.



Time Warner income rises on ad revenue


A 2006 Hummer H3 is shown in this undated photo provided by General Motors.

Hummer recalls H3s for faulty hood NEW YORK (AP) – General Motors said Wednesday that it is recalling all Hummer H3s produced since the 2006 model year to fix a portion of the hood that can detach during driving. The voluntary recall affects 164,190 Hummer H3s and H3Ts in the U.S. and 198,404 worldwide. Hummer spokesman Nick Richards said a device on the hood called a hood louver can come loose and possibly detach while driving. A louver is a panel located on the hood that allows air to enter the

engine compartment and prevent overheating. It actually helped to cool the engine on older Hummer models but is decorative on the H3. In a recall documents filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, GM said the tabs holding the louver could fracture, causing it to rattle against the hood and become loose. GM warned the louver could strike another vehicle if it came off while driving. Richards says the repair involves applying an adhesive to refasten

the louver to the hood. He says there have been two complaints of the problem in the U.S. and three in Japan. GM said that Japanese transportation officials notified the company of the potential problem in January. GM plans to send a bulletin to dealers outlining the fix this week, followed by a letter to Hummer owners next week on the recall. GM is in the process of shutting down Hummer after an attempt to sell the brand to a Chinese buyer fell through earlier this year.

NEW YORK – Time Warner Inc. said Wednesday that improving results at its cable channels and a couple of popular DVD releases boosted its first-quarter net income by 10 percent. It also upgraded its outlook for the full year. It said earnings should rise “at least in the midteens” on a percentage basis from a year ago, when it posted adjusted earnings of $1.83 per share. Its forecast from February was similar but didn’t include the words “at least.” Still, Time Warner shares fell 45 cents, or 1.4 percent, to $32.22 on Wednesday morning amid a broad market decline over European debt worries.

Nike outlines growth plans NEW YORK – Nike Inc. CEO Mark Parker says the company plans to increase revenue 40 percent over the next five years through growth in international markets and its array of brands. “Our power is quantifiable and our potential continues to grow,” Parker said Wednesday at an investor conference in New York. Nike plans to increase its revenue to $27 billion by 2015. Its revenue was $19.3 billion in its most recent fiscal year. ENTERPRISE NEWS SERVICE REPORTS
