Brandon pulls big surprise in primaries



Make it two in the House for High Point. 4A BY PAUL B. JOHNSON ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – Marcus Brandon has one race to go to win his first general election campaign, but the 35-year-old Democrat realizes he’s already accomplished an amazing political feat. On Tuesday, Brandon defeated four-term Rep. Earl Jones, D-Guilford, in the 60th State House District Democratic primary. He won by a margin of 20 percentage points in the district that covers parts of High Point, Greensboro and southern Guilford County. Defeating an incumbent in any party primary is one of the rarest victories for a challenger. Brandon, a Guilford County native who moved to High Point a year ago, said he was able to advance to the general election through on-theground organizing, door-to-door campaigning and enough fundraising to allow his message of change to reach voters. “Jobs is the biggest issue right now. People are not working. They are tired of their representatives sitting around a table deciding what’s best for them,” Brandon said during an interview Thursday at his Thissell Street home and campaign office east of downtown High Point. The longtime Democratic Party organizer will face Republican Lonnie Wilson of High Point in the Nov. 2 general election in the Democratic-leaning district. The winner will take the oath of office when the N.C. General Assembly convenes for the 2011 session in late January. Jones will serve until the start of next year’s session. Brandon launched his campaign in April 2009 and spoke with thousands of voters. He’s enjoyed a core

Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, during the 2008 Democratic presidential primary of 25 to 30 campaign volunteers to spread his message. Brandon campaigned on the need for job opportunities for people in the district and the lack of effective representation by Jones, a former Greensboro councilman. While respectful of the legacy of the civil rights movement, Brandon said politics can’t remain stagnant. “We’ve got to move beyond the politics of the sit-in movement. The conversation has changed from who can eat at the restaurant to who can afford to eat at the restaurant,” he said. Brandon, who got started in politics as a teenager in southern Guilford County, said he’s promoting ideas to create good-paying, sustainable jobs within communities. He also picked up on the energy

HIGH POINT – Mother’s Day is a day for children to show appreciation to the woman they call “mom.” But for a restaurateur, it’s a day for big business. “Everybody wants to treat their mother right,” said Sammy Gianopoulos, owner of Gianno’s Stone Oven Pizzeria and part owner of o’So Tavern in High Point. “Mother’s Day is the busiest day of the year for us, over Valentine’s Day and any other day.” He says both restaurants will be open Sunday.

Brandon said he believes his campaign can serve as a message for Democratic candidates, who are worried this year about a dramatic

slump in turnout from 2008. “Democrats need to understand that it is up to you, if you’re an elected official or running for office, to be able to go out and have a message that resonates with those same voters,” he said. | 888-3528

last year. Total spending on the holiday is expected to reach $14.6 billion, with $1.9 billion spent on flowers and $2.9 billion spent on food. “It’s even busier than Father’s Day, Gianopoulos said. “Mothers are taken out, where as families usually cook out on Father’s Day.” Area florists already have seen the annual rush brought on by Mother’s Day, also one of their busiest times of the year. “Most moms already have everything that they need as far as stuff, so they like to get flowers,” said Tommie Hughes, an owner of Ellington’s Florist and Greenhouse in High Point. Hughes said the shop will sell between 500 and 600 mixed arrangements through Sunday.

Janet Ratledge, owner of Hazel Williams Flower Shoppe in Archdale said “So many of our orders are deliveries (for Mother’s Day).” “In this day and age, so many people live away from their mother.

High Point woman charged after vehicle hits store ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

HIGH POINT – A High Point woman has been charged with failing to secure a motor vehicle after a child inside her car caused the vehicle to crash into a business Wednesday night. Lt. Steve Myers said the accident happened at 7:44 p.m. Wednesday at the Green Market at 900 W. Green Drive. Police

said people were in the store, but no one was injured. Shakiema Tiane Donaldson has been charged with failure to secure a motor vehicle. Myers said there was a minor in Donaldson’s car and somehow the child knocked it into gear and it coasted into the business. The damage to the business was estimated at $30,000.

GUILFORD COUNTY – Several county officials endorsed a Tennessee company Thursday that will operate a new clinic for a needy southeast Greensboro neighborhood. Prison Health Services Inc., based in Brentwood, Tenn., provides health-care services for the Guilford County jails and the county Juvenile Detention Center. The Guilford County Board of Health contracted with the company after negotiations with Moses Cone Health Care failed, Health Director Merle Green told the Guilford County Board of Commissioners during a work session. PHS physicians and nurses will work in a building the county has leased in the 2000 block of Martin Luther King Jr. Drive in Greensboro. Commissioners approved the lease last year. County officials have worked on the project for several years.

Gibsonville residents eye library funding BY DAVID NIVENS ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

GUILFORD COUNTY – Gibsonville residents, fearful that a $55,000 county budget cut could close their library, lobbied commissioners Thursday for full funding. The cut is part of a $17.2 million cutback County Manager Brenda JonesFox proposed in her 2011 budget that offers no property tax increase, staff cuts and a reorganization of the public health department. Earlier, commissioners decided in a work session to review library funding before they pass the new budget. The Gibsonville library’s budget is less than $100,000. “We need this library and the people want it,” Gibsonville Mayor Leonard Williams said during a public hearing. Under a contract, the county will maintain funding at $385,000 for the High Point Public Library. The Greensboro library would take


Total: $568.9 million, down $ 17.2 million Tax rate: Unchanged at 73.74 cents per $100 valuation, or $1,475 for the owner of a $200,000 home. School Operations: Remains the same at $175 million for the school district operating budget; $13.2 million for Guilford Technical Community college. Public Safety: $86.6 million, down $1 million, with 10 additional paramedics included. Negotiations: Commissioners will hold another workshop May 18. a $600,000 cut based on a formula of serving 16 percent of the county population. “Our library complements the education system,” said Ben Baxley, Gibsonville town manager. Half of the library’s customers live in Ala-

mance County, where half the town is located. That was offered as one reason to cut support. One speaker offered commissioners a petition with 190 signatures supporting the library donation. The county also contributes to the Jamestown library under a contract, Jones-Fox said. “Why does a contract give the others status for funding?” Democratic Commissioner Paul Gibson asked during the work session. • Arts: The proposed budget includes cuts for arts and community groups to $435,000, or 46.5 percent in line with the county’s policy of a declining donation cycle. The High Point Area Arts Council would get a 66 percent cut to $25,000. Arts are important for communities to help develop creative thinking, said Debbie Lumpkins, arts council executive director. “If we are to remain competitive, we must focus on creativity and imagination,” she said.

“We need to develop a work force that can work creatively.” • Health: As part of cuts in human services, the budget eliminates the annual $1.58 million payment to Guilford Adult Health service for uninsured and needy people. The health department could take over the clinic or seek a contractor. “To balance the budget on the back of these people is morally reprehensible,” said the Rev. Julie Peeples. Commissioners also will review service alternatives in their next work session. Dr. David Talbot of HealthServe Community Clinic said his patients were shocked at the prospect of having to go to a proposed new clinic in southeast Greensboro operated by Prison Health Services Inc., based in Brentwood, Tenn. “They can’t believe that would happen,” he said.

Karzai to remake image in DC

LONDON (AP) – In an electrifying race that could change the face of British politics, voters turned out in droves Thursday for an election that could return the party of right-wing icon Margaret Thatcher to power after a long stretch in the political wilderness. Prime Minister Gordon Brown of the Labour Party was trailing in the polls against Conservative David Cameron, with Nick Clegg of the perennially third-placed Liberal Democrats gunning for a historic strong showing that could catapult his party into the ranks of the heavyweights.

KABUL (AP) – In Washington next week, Afghan president Hamid Karzai will work to recast his image as a mercurial leader prone to outbursts against the West into one of a credible partner worthy of the thousands of U.S. troops and billions of dollars of aid still pouring into his nation in its ninth year of war. After months of rocky relations with the Obama administration, the U.S. and Karzai are getting their partner-

ship back on track. If he’s successful in the visit, which starts Monday, the Afghan president will leave Wash-

16 arrested for plotting attacks in Afghanistan KABUL (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Afghan police in recent weeks have arrested 16 people who were plotting suicide and rocket attacks in the capital and are hunting for other suspects, top security officials said Thursday. The officials hailed the arrests as a sign that the ability of police to uncover such plots is improving and bringing more

stability to the country. Interior Minister Hanif Atmar said all but two of the suspects were detained in Kabul, and six were Pakistani nationals. Kabul police Chief Abdul Rahman Rahman said the suspects admitted to investigators that they had ties to two alQaida-linked groups, Hizb-i-Islami and the Haqqani network.

Recovery from tornado continues for residents On March 28, the F3 tornado hit our home and property with full force. Damage was major to our home, garage, dog kennels. Two vehicles were totaled. Numerous massive 100-year-old trees were uprooted or split in half. The beautiful woods behind our home were almost completely obliterated. After 12 days, we got power and phone service back. Our rebuilding and recovery are ongoing since the morning after the tornado. As City Manager Strib Boynton stated in an article, the blessing is that lives were spared throughout the county. Words are inadequate to express our heartfelt thanks to friends, neighbors, family, church members and even total strangers who showed us such kindness. Hot cups of coffee and breakfast foods delivered by friends in the mornings helped to start the day. Bottles of ice water on hot cleanup days were so welcome. There were those who prepared food for us; others took us out for meals. Community Bible Church was there for all the tornado victims in so many ways. The policeman who sat night after night guarding our darkened house gave such a sense of security. Other policemen patrolled the neighborhood regularly. Those who volunteered on a hot Saturday included Boy Scouts and leaders from West End and Covenant churches. Students came from High Point Christian Academy. There were members from Green Street Baptist Church. Many individual workers volunteered as well. How we appreciate them! To the Red Cross workers who came by, all city employees who daily removed debris from the streets, the crews who have worked nonstop with rebuilding, the police chaplain who came by, friends who have given support



and shared our grief, we say thank you. Our gratitude is immeasurable. Out of tragedy we have witnessed the goodness of our community. GENE AND MARTY KIRBY High Point

Merchants must tell public what they offer You are exactly right ... again! In your “Our View” editorial on Tuesday, April 27, you said the merchants at Oak Hollow Mall couldn’t expect the general public to come there if they failed to advertise. We buyers have no way of knowing what goods and services are offered without advertising. A prime example is the K&W Cafeteria satellite, which was opened in the food court a couple of years ago. I enjoyed it immensely – the food was delicious, well-prepared, and with a variety of reasonably priced choices. But I never saw it advertised and every time I mentioned it to friends, they had no idea the mall had a cafeteria. Results – it wasn’t



Make it two in the House for High Point F


hen the N.C. General Assembly convenes in 2011 after this year’s general elections on Nov. 2, there will be more of a High Point presence in the N.C. House of Representatives. For the first time in just over 10 years, two residents of High Point will hold seats in the House. Barring any political twists between now and then, John Faircloth, who won 43 percent of the vote in his GOP primary to capture a seat Tuesday, will hold down the 61st District seat. He faces no Democratic opposition in November. In the 60th District, both candidates are High Point residents. Marcus Brandon bested incumbent Earl Jones of Greensboro in the Democratic primary Tuesday. Republican Lonnie Wilson faced no opposition then. Next year will mark the first time two High Point residents have held seats in the House chamber simultaneously since 2000, when Mary Jarrell held one of the two old 89th District seats and Steve Wood held the old 27th District seat. After redistricting by the Legislature, the new 61st District seat became basically a High Point/ Jamestown seat, with Wood holding it from 2003 to 2005 and Laura Wiley holding it from 2005 until now. The new 60th District seat, which includes a few precincts in east High Point was designed basically to elect a Democrat from Greensboro. Jones has held that seat since 2003. We’ve been saying for years that High Point needs more voices in the Legislature. It’s about time. Now, if Bruce Davis were to successfully mount an independent campaign in the Senate’s 28th District, wouldn’t that be interesting?

Around the world, their sacrifice is not forgotten

irst, I have a news note: June 10, 2009, up to 266,000 veterans from Priority 8 (this is the group of veterans with lower to middle income and no service connected medical conditions) became eligible to enroll in the Department of Veterans Affairs health care system. It is very surprising to me that in early March this year only 31,000 in the Priority 8 group had enrolled. The VA reports that department officials had expected the number to be much greater since notices were sent to approximately 450,000 veterans who had been turned down. The eligibility income level was raised by 10 percent. That increase makes the new national-means threshold became $32,342 for a veteran with no dependents and $38,812 with one dependent. In certain high cost of living areas, the income can go up much higher. If you were classified as Priority 8 before July, 2009, be sure to claim your eligibility for this benefit. Since Memorial Day will soon be here, I wanted to share with readers some information in an article I read written by Max Cleland headlined – “The Whole Earth As Their Tomb: Around the world, fallen heroes are not forgotten this Memorial Day.” The article contained information about memorials and monuments around the world to Americans who have given their lives in defense of freedom. There are 24 overseas U.S. military cemeteries and 25 memorials, monuments and markers. They are maintained by the American Battle Monuments Commission. All of these special places share the same purpose, and that is to honor the fallen by commemorating the service, achievements and sacrifice of our nation’s armed forces – our war dead, missing in action and those who fought at their side. The American Battle Monuments Commission was established in 1923. President Warren G. Harding appointed the first chairman, General of the Armies John “Black Jack” Pershing, who lead the American Expeditionary Forces to victory in

World War I. Pershing made this his life’s work until his death in 1948. He so eloquently defined the commission’s purpose when he promised that the U.S. Government would perpetuate the memory of the bravery and sacriVETERAN’S fice of our men and women in uniform. He said, “Time VIEWS will not dim the glory of their Stan deeds.” Spangle Sr. The overseas cemeteries ■■■ serve as a resting place for 124,917 war dead: from World War I, 30,921; from World War II, 93,246; and from the Mexican American War (18461848), 750. Another 94,135 U.S. servicemen and women are missing in action or were lost or buried at sea during the world wars, Korean and Vietnam wars. Many of the dead are buried in cemeteries located on or near the battled-scarred fields they died liberating. In all cases, the countries where these cemeteries are located provide the land to the U.S. government free of charge or taxation. You may go to the Web site www.abmc. gov. for more information. I don’t recall ever seeing this much information about American Battle Monuments Commission. I hope you find this bit of information interesting. Poet Archibald MacLeish, in his poem written after his younger brother Kenneth died in World War I, “The Young Dead Soldiers Do Not Speak,” calls on all of us to remember those who died in war and gives us these words: “They say, We leave you our deaths; Give them their meaning.” I see a great responsibility placed upon all of us in those words. May God Bless America and all the other nations. ... Semper Fi! STAN SPANGLE SR. is a 21-year veteran of the Marine Corps, serving in Korea and Vietnam. He’s a member of numerous veterans organizations.

RAPE CASE: Former NFL star arrested in incident involving minor. 6B

Interior Secretary halts offshore drilling leases



WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Lettuce sold to retailers in 23 states, including North Carolina, and the District of Columbia has been recalled because of a possible link to 19 cases of E. coli. Freshway Foods of Sidney, Ohio, announced on Thursday a recall of romaine lettuce after illnesses were reported in Michigan, Ohio and New York. The Food and Drug Administration said the illnesses included 12 people who have been hospitalized and three with potentially life-threatening symptoms. The New York state Public Health Laboratory in Albany discovered the contamination in a bag of Freshway Foods shredded romaine lettuce on Wednesday.

HOUSTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Interior Secretary Ken Salazar has ordered a halt to all new offshore drilling permits nationwide until at least the end of the month. Salazar spoke to reporters

Thursday outside BPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Houston crisis center. He said lifting the moratorium on new permits will depend on the outcome of a federal investigation over the Gulf spill and the recommendations

to be delivered to the president May 28. He said until then, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are putting things on hold relative to the granting of permits for well construction on the outer

Feds: Times Square probe will take time WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The White House sidestepped questions about whether the attempted Times Square bomber was linked to foreign terror groups Thursday as the FBI sought to tamp down reports that it had either confirmed or disproved such connections. Faisal Shahzad, the Pakistan-born U.S. citizen accused of carrying out Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s failed attack, has told authorities

he received training at a terror camp in Pakistan. The FBI is investigating whether that claim is true and is trying to figure out if the bombing was financed or supported by one of several terrorist or militant groups in Pakistanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lawless tribal region. If the bomb was sponsored by a foreign group, it would be a nearly catastrophic reminder that overseas terror organizations can still reach into

the United States nearly a decade after the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks. The 30-year-old former budget analyst was arrested Monday night on board a plane bound for the United Arab Emirates.

‘A better place to live’ Despite funding battles, Kenner’s tenure marked by numerous successes Elsewhere...



HIGH POINT – The world of public housing presented numerous challenges and accomplishments for the High Point Housing Authority during Robert

L. Kenner’s tenure, local officials said. For the Spring Brook Meadows development in south High Point, the authority hired its own contractor on Kenner’s watch and in the past year, the number of unsold singlefamily home lots decreased from 36 to 19, a major improvement over past years when the economy slowed progress on the project, said board Chairman Bob Davis.

One ongoing challenge has been the Clara Cox Homes redevelopment project. The authority received a federal HOPE VI grant to demolish the former housing project in 2005, but was unsucessful in its attempts to land additional HOPE VI funding for the planned new development of about 210 multifamily rental units and 19 single-family homes on the 19.4-acre Clara Cox site at 621 E. Grimes Ave. According to the authority, there is a tax credit investor lined up for the project, but a deal has not closed. Construction is ex-

pected to begin this summer. “I look back over 13 years and when I came here, the old Clara Cox site was plagued by crime and deterioration, with residents having a lot of hope it was going to be a better place to live,” said High Point City Manager Strib Boynton. “Now it’s on the verge of moving forward. I think Clara Cox is advancing, and I think Spring Brook Meadows is also moving forward. Having to go through HUD to compete for limited dollars is a highly competitive process.” The authority received

federal and state tax credit approval for the project in 2008, but the first investor backed out, further delaying the start of work. “Obviously, that’s not where we hoped it would be at this point in time, but I don’t know that you can pin that on (Kenner) necessarily,” said Housing Authority Commissioner Matt Witmeyer. “There are a number of reasons that hasn’t gotten to fruition at this point, so I think that’s been disppointing for all of us, Robert included.” | 888-3531

Holliman warns of state cuts to come BY DARRICK IGNASIAK ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

DAVIDSON COUNTY — As the N.C. General Assembly convenes for its short session next week, Rep. Hugh Holliman said Thursday that cuts are likely for several departments, including education. “Cuts are going to come from all of the departments,” he said. “I think education will get a 3.9 percent cut, but some of the departments will get

5, 6, 7 percent cuts. I’m talking about justice and public safety, economic resources and health and human services. Everybody will have to take some cuts, including the General Assembly. We will try to protect education.” Holliman, D-Davidson, made those comments during a town hall meeting at Davidson County Community College. He said he often holds the town hall meetings before and after the N.C. General

Assembly meets so he can hear the concerns of the people. He said his biggest goal in the short session is to make sure the legislature gets the 2010 budget completed. “We’d like to get it done by June 30 so all the state and county people know what to expect,” said Holliman, the N.C. House majority leader. “Education is the top priority, but we want to be fair to all the others. It’s been tough on a lot of departments. “We’ve got to get

through the tough times and get to the point where we are fully funding everyone. Sometimes recessions are good because it makes you look at priorities and it makes you look in depth at all of the departments and make sure our money is being spent properly.” Holliman also said he has a goal of doing something for small businesses during the short session. “The state of North Carolina has really never tried to do economic de-


velopment and see how we can really address our small business problems,” he said. “As most of you know, we’ve had programs to recruit major companies. We think there are a lot of good opportunities in small businesses that we would like to try to address.” Holliman, who is in his 10th year in the N.C. House, faces a challenge in November from Rayne Brown of Lexington. | 888-3657

Court keeps â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Fatal Visionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; appeal alive RICHMOND, Va. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Jeffrey MacDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decades-long bid to prove his innocence in the 1970 slayings of his wife and two daughters has been kept alive by a federal appeals court considering the former Army doctorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bid for a new trial. In an order issued Thursday, a three-judge panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond denied a government request to dismiss MacDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s appeal and asked lawyers to submit more briefs in the case. It did not rule on the request for a new trial, based on new evidence. MacDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lawyer, Hart Miles, called the order a â&#x20AC;&#x153;breakthrough rulingâ&#x20AC;? in the case, which inspired the book and



Nancy Hicks Skorepa HIGH POINT â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Nancy Hicks Skorepa, 74, passed away Thursday, May 06, 2010, at High Point Regional Hospital. She was born July 5, 1935, in Yadkinville to the late Leonard and Dorothy Hicks and later married Gerald Skorepa. Nancy retired from the city of High Point after 37 years of service. She had a fond love for all her animals and her flowers. She is survived by her loving husband; son, James Edward â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nancyâ&#x20AC;?

TV miniseries â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fatal Vision.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very, very exciting,â&#x20AC;? said Kathryn MacDonald, who married MacDonald after he had been in prison for more than two decades. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It gives us so much hope.â&#x20AC;? She had planned to break the news to MacDonald later Thursday. MacDonald is serving three life terms at the federal penitentiary in Cumberland, Md., for the slayings of his wife Colette and daughters Kimberley, 5, and Kristen, 2, at their Fort Bragg, N.C., home. The killings shocked a nation still reeling from the Charles Manson murders six months earlier. MacDonald is seeking a new trial based on DNA evidence and a witness statement.

MacDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attorneys told judges at a hearing in March that the evidence, including a federal marshalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s claim that a prosecutor in North Carolina threatened a key witness, support his assertion that four drug-crazed hippies killed his family. The government argued the DNA test results cannot be considered by the appeals court at this time, that the threat claim lacks merit and that MacDonald is rehashing a lot of old evidence from previous unsuccessful appeals. The DNA test results involve hair found under Kristenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fingernail. The hair did not match MacDonald or anyone in his family. In its order Thursday, the court sought further briefs on the significance of the DNA test results.

Tax panel ABC panel offers different liquor control rules declines cigarette tax stamps RALEIGH (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A legislative committee recommending changes to North Carolinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s liquor control laws fell short of suggestions made by a separate panel with appointees of Gov. Beverly Perdue. The Joint Study Committee on Alcoholic Beverage Control approved

RALEIGH (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A legislative panel has declined to recommend restoring a requirement that wholesalers adhere tax stamps to cigarette packs they distribute in North Carolina to deter smuggling. The Revenue Laws Study Committee voted against recommending legislation to the full General Assembly to require the stamps after a 16-year hiatus. The stamps show the cigarette tax has been paid and make it harder for blackmarket sales of sell packs in high tax states.

Is your hearing current?


Dear All: Of course the subject of salary should be discussed during a job interview. Usually, when an interview is nearing its end, the interviewer will ask, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do you have any questions?â&#x20AC;? If the topics of salary and benefits havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come up before then, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perfectly acceptable to inquire about them. Dear Abby: My husband of more than 20 years decided that the grass was greener on the other side, and now I find myself on the dating scene again. I had breast reduction surgery, thinking I would be with my husband for the rest of my life. Now I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how to bring up the subject if I find a man with whom I want to be intimate. I know a man should love me for who I am on the inside, but I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help but feel that the scars I carry on the outside will make him turn and walk away. Not a day goes by that I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t regret having had the surgery, but there is nothing I can do

about that now. When do I tell the guy about my scars? I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want this to get in the way of sharing my life with someone. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Scarred in Arizona

Dear Scarred: Many women have had breast reductions â&#x20AC;&#x201C; some for aesthetic reasons, but others because nature blessed them with such an overabundance of tissue that it was creating painful back and shoulder problems. The surgery is neither shocking nor particularly unusual. The time to discuss it is when you have gotten to know someone well enough that you can talk frankly with him and explain that you feel self-conscious. No gentleman who cares about you will ever walk away. And any man who does, you are well rid of before investing your heart â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or anything else â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in him. Dear Abby: My husband, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rick,â&#x20AC;? and I have been married 20 years. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a veteran who is completely disabled. We live in a very secluded area. The nearest town is 60 miles away, and I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be gone long because of Rickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s needs. Abby, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m lonely. My

family lives in another state. Rick said years ago that we would move to where my family members are. But now he refuses because he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to leave his comfort zone. Some days I am more down than others. Our home is on the market, but we wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be going far â&#x20AC;&#x201C; just a bit closer to the town where Rickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family is. When I bring up the subject of missing my relatives, Rick gets angry so I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say anything anymore. I long for my family â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and for many other things as well. Could you share your feelings on this, please? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Nowhere in Montana Dear Nowhere: Gladly. Because your husband refuses to move to where your family members are, keep your fingers crossed that it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be too long before you find a buyer for your current home. Do move closer to his family. At least then you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be so isolated. And once youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re closer to his family, THEY can look out for him while you schedule some visits to your family. If you go a couple of times a year, it could make a big difference in your outlook.

Cause sought for chronic fatigue syndrome


ear Dr. Donohue: For more than a year I have felt so washed out that I barely can take care of my home and children. I have been to four doctors and have had all sorts of tests. No diagnosis has been given to me. The last doctor says I could have chronic fatigue syndrome, and I am going to see him again. I know nothing about this and would greatly appreciate any information you can give me on cause and treatment. My husband has become quite frustrated with me. – N.C.

following have to be present to merit the diagnosis: impaired memory or concenHEALTH tration, or both; sore Dr. Paul throat; Donohue muscle ■■■ pain; joint pain; headaches; unrefreshing sleep; and exhaustion after physical activity that once was quite tolerable. An important part of the workup is searching for all the known causes of fatigue, a formidable Chronic fatigue syntask.

recall any injury. Any thoughts? – D.T. The bony bump you feel is the medial epicondyle, a protrusion that is the site for the attachment of muscle tendons that bend the hand downward. It’s inflamed. The condition is called medial epicondylitis. The usual cause of inflammation is overuse. Golfers often get it; it’s also called golfer’s elbow. Rest is important. Apply ice to the painful area three times a day for 20 minutes. If ice isn’t bringing relief, switch to heat. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs control pain and ease inflammation if there’s no contraindication to your taking them. Advil is an example. If things haven’t resolved in two weeks, see the family doctor. A shot of cortisone to the inflamed site can hurry things along. Dear Dr. Donohue: When my brothers, sisters and I were young, we were not allowed to drink anything with our meals. My mother said that drinking interfered with digestion. As an adult, I can’t get a forkful of food down without taking a drink. Is there anything to this digestion theory? – M.M. Not a thing. Liquids don’t interfere with digestion. Some people need fluids to swallow; others don’t. Whichever works is perfectly OK.

Brower would not comment on whether Taylor knew the girl’s age but added, “Ignorance is not an excuse to an individual’s age.” The age of consent in New York is 17. An attorney for Taylor, Kenneth Gribetz, said, “We’re confident his innocence will be proven.” Police said the girl was reported missing by her family in March and had

elp! If you have any photos of High Point Normal & Industrial Institute or William Penn High School, you are asked to contact Linda Willard, Guidance Department office support at Penn-Griffin School for the Arts (8784605). Those photos, extremely hard to find, are needed for a project at the school. I know, HERE & from my THERE experience with the Tom committee Blount that pro■■■ duced the book “History of the High Point Public Schools,” which was published in 1993, that reproducible photos of things related to William Penn were difficult, to find.



GIFT OF GOLF You have the opportunity to play some golf on Grandover Resort’s East Course, beginning at 8:30 a.m. May 14 in the Guilford Interfaith Hospitality Network’s fourth annual Golf Scrambler and help provide shelter and care to local homeless children and their families. GIHN Executive Director Clarke Martin suggests that you enjoy 18 holes of golf, “Captain’s Choice, Best Ball” including greens fees, cart, GPS, lunch, beverage, a sleeve of balls and lots of fun. Golfers are requested to secure donations for GIHN totaling at least $200 each. Many pastors try to take Fridays off, so give the “gift of golf” by securing donations for them to play. Contact Martin at (336) 339-4593 or Clarke@ for more details on playing or sponsoring. More information, including nonprofit documentation, is available at www.

IGH POINT – The community will get its first glimpse of the long-awaited Children’s Learning Center during a grand opening Saturday morning. Then the center, a signature project of the Junior League of High Point – in conjunction with the High Point Museum – will open to preschool groups beginning June 1. “Our first initiative is a literacy enhancement program that we’re calling ‘A Is For Artifact,’” said Lauren Picha, Children’s Learning Center chairwoman for the Junior League. “Children will be working on vocabulary building, letter recognition and letter sounds, and all of our lessons are tied back into High Point.” For example, lesson plans such as “F Is For Furniture,” “S Is For Socks,” “P Is For Pottery” and “H Is For High Point” will incorporate facts about High Point history and some of the city’s most prominent industries. “We’re just getting them familiar with some of the industries in their community,” Picha said. The 30-minute lessons will be



The Children’s Learning Center will have its grand opening to the community Saturday, from 10 a.m. until noon, at the Little Red Schoolhouse, located at 2011 E. Lexington Ave., one block east of the High Point Museum. The center will be staffed on Tuesdays, from 9 to 11 a.m., beginning June 1. To schedule a preschool group visit, call Sarah DeYoung of the High Point Museum at 8851859. offered to organized preschool groups and will be taught in the Little Red Schoolhouse, which Junior League volunteers have transformed into the Children’s Learning Center. When it opens to groups on June 1, the center will be staffed by Junior League volunteers and a museum staff member, since the schoolhouse is owned by the city of High Point and operated through the museum. “The High Point Museum is thrilled to offer a new program experience for our preschoolaged visitors,” Edith Brady,


museum director, said in a statement. “Without the help of the Junior League, the museum would not have had the personnel necessary to get this project under way. We are especially excited to be introducing the Little Red Schoolhouse to a whole new generation of High Point children.” The Junior League initiated plans for the Children’s Learning Center several years ago, after identifying a need in the community to better prepare 4- and 5-year-old children for entrance into elementary school. The organization also works with the museum on its annual “Kickoff to Kindergarten” program, which will now be hosted by the Children’s Learning Center. At Saturday’s grand opening, visitors will be able to see the center’s “F Is For Furniture” lesson plan laid out, and the High Point Public Library has provided kits to make Little Red Schoolhouses that children can take home with them. “This is a time for the community and preschool administrators to get in the building and see what the center is all about,” Picha said. | 888-3579







Here’s a puzzle in logic: A child born in Boston of parents born in Boston is not a U.S. citizen. How come? Bridge is essentially a game of logical thinking. In today’s deal, West led a passive club against four hearts: four, jack, king. South then led a trump to the ace and a trump to his jack. West took the queen and led another club. South won with the ace, drew trumps and led a diamond to dummy’s king. He came back to the queen of clubs and led another diamond. When West took the ace, he could count 10 tricks for declarer, so West led the ace and another spade. Down one.



Friday, May 7, 2010 CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Breckin Meyer, 36; Traci Lords, 42; Amy Heckerling, 56; Bill Kreutzmann, 64 HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Let your heart and sympathetic nature lead the way. This is a great year to pull together ideas and plans with your knowledge and experience in order to get things off the ground. Your hard work this year will lead to bigger and better opportunities. Your success will motivate others to follow suit. Your numbers are 3, 11, 13, 26, 33, 44, 48 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t keep your feelings locked up inside. Extend your warmth, compassion and affection to someone who can offer you as much in return. Activities that challenge you physically will build your confidence. Love is on the rise. ★★★★ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Mingle, participate and join in and you will discover things about yourself and others that will help you make vital decisions for your future. You do have options, so start making the changes that contribute to a positive, more productive lifestyle. ★★★★ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You will face criticism if you aren’t totally honest, upfront and to the point. Trying to skirt issues or avoid telling someone how you really feel will backfire. Romance will be enticing but make sure you end one relationship before starting another. ★★ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Taking on more than usual may cause apprehension but, in the end, the experience you get and the friendships you begin will be worth your while. The changes heading your way should be embraced with enthusiasm. ★★★★★ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Be careful how you spend your money. Being overly generous or getting involved in a risky financial scheme will lead to disaster. A solid long-term investment will bring you peace of mind and a safety net for the future. ★★★ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You have far more control over your situation than you realize. It’s important to put your own needs first. A love interest will lead you astray. Get your work out of the way first. ★★★ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Expect the unexpected, especially when dealing with colleagues and peers. Be the quiet observer and sounding board – nothing more. Focus on what you can do to brighten up your surroundings or raise the value of your home. ★★★ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Stop worrying about everyone else and do the things you enjoy doing. Your discipline and determination to make the changes that will improve your life will pay off. You will gain greater insight into an emotional matter. ★★★★★ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): The less time spent dealing with personal matters, the better. Not everyone will like your choices right now but, if you engage in activities that offer a challenge and interaction with new friends, you will get a better perspective. ★★ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Good fortune is heading your way and opportunities will surface that you will want to be prepared to take advantage of. You can close a deal but do so for the right reason, not because someone else wants you to. ★★★★ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Be honest about your personal situation. Getting angry will not solve problems. Keep in mind what has happened in the past when you have gotten involved in a joint venture. Keep your money and your possessions in a safe place to avoid temptation. ★★★ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): So much can happen in a day if you share your ideas and plans. An unusual twist to an old idea will finally get things underway. Love is in the stars and taking part in a new interest will lead to a romantic encounter. ★★★

You hold: S K 8 4 H 10 9 5 D 9 6 3 C J 9 6 2. The dealer, at your left, opens one spade. Your partner doubles, and the next player passes. What do you say?

South would have done better to cash the A-K of trumps. Was his play illogical? South could reason that West’s opening lead would have been a high spade if he held the A-K. If East had a high spade plus the jack of clubs and queen of hearts, he’d have responded to the opening bid. South should have played West for the queen of hearts. Puzzle answer: The child was born in 1770.

ANSWER: Though you have balanced pattern and a spade stopper, a response of 1NT would be constructive, showing six to nine points. When your hand is this weak, you should look for a trump suit, hence bid two clubs and hope for the best. Your partner must realize that your bid promises no values. West dealer N-S vulnerable


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

HIGH POINT – Megan Buckland made good on a childhood dream late Wednesday night when she gave a verbal commitment to play basketball at the University of North Carolina. Bishop McGuinness’ star point guard called the coaches at Florida State and N.C. State to let them know she had decided to cast her lot with the Tar Heels. Buckland then called UNC leader Sylvia Hatchell, who coached Buckland as a small child and again as a seventh-grader at summer camps in Chapel Hill. On that latter trip, Buckland and a friend made a pact: Buck-

land would play for the Tar Heels, and her friend – a cheerleader – would be cheering for UNC. “I held up my end of the deal,” BuckBuckland land said with a laugh Thursday. “I just grew up being a Carolina fan, so it was my dream since being a little girl to play at Carolina. It’s a dream come true, really special to me and my family.” Only a year ago, the 6-foot junior was looking at offers from Elon and West Virginia. Then came a breakout summer at the U-16 USA Basketball tryouts and an impressive display leading the Villains at the Best of Maryland showcase.

The offers from everywhere began to arrive at a dizzying pace. Last season at Bishop, guiding a team that graduated almost every key player from the year before, Buckland averaged 20 points, 7.9 rebounds and 4.6 assists per game. Bishop won its fifth straight N.C. High School Athletic Association 1A championship and Buckland captured her second straight finals MVP award – even after having to watch the end of the game from the bench due to a torn ACL. Remarkably, UNC didn’t offer its scholarship until a week after Buckland suffered the injury. But her rehab schedule continues to go well, she said, and it will be a whole lot easier focusing on her

knee now that the college choice has been made. “It was kind of nerve-wracking at first, but it was encouraging that everyone stayed with me,” Buckland said. “It’s definitely been an experience.” And now, she’ll be getting ready both to rejoin Bishop and experience her freshman season with the Tar Heels. “She is pretty much walking on air. She’s as excited as I’ve ever seen Megan be,” Villains coach Brian Robinson said. “As we were talking last night she couldn’t stop smiling, and her parents (Thursday) said she hasn’t stopped smiling since. That makes me very happy.” | 888-3526


Breaking losing streaks is the new NASCAR trend instead of Jimmie Johnson victories. Ryan Newman started the run at Phoenix and was followed by Kevin Harvick at Talladega and Kyle Busch at Richmond. Plenty of candidates abound to also experience the relief and joy after too much time away from Victory Lane. Johnson’s teammates at Hendrick Motorsports – Jeff Gordon and Dale Earnhardt Jr. – are prominent on the list. Another is Roush-Fenway driver Greg Biffle. Gordon, who has come close in the past five races, certainly is considered a contender in this weekend’s Southern 500, given his seven victories in 29 starts at Darlington Raceway. Biffle, who hasn’t won since the September race at Dover in 2008, is another who could break through at the “Lady in Black.” In nine starts, he claimed back-to-back wins in 2004 and 2005, led 95 laps before suffering engine failure in 2008 and led 117 laps before finishing eighth last year. “It is a tough race track,” Biffle said. “It is really difficult. That is what I enjoy most about that track, though. It is extremely challenging and that is what I look forward to.” Those who have never

Greg Biffle climbs in his car prior to Sprint Cup practice at Daytona International Speedway in this Feb. 5, 2010 photo. Biffle, whose last Cup win came at Dover in Sept. of 2008, looks to end that drought on Saturday night at Darlington Raceway. Darlington ranks as one of Biffle’s favorite tracks. He posted back-to-back victories there in 2004 and ‘05. Having said that, Biffle has picked up his share of “Darlington stripes,” the term given to damage inflicted on the right side of cars when drivers scrape against the wall in turns that have just one racing lane in places. “I remember my first one and my last one,” Biffle said. “You know, we are running 180 miles per hour and are six to 12 inches from the wall. If you are not up there, you are not going fast. Inevitably, the car will slide or you will get a little loose and there is no room for error. It is so

easy to get a stripe on the car, so easy.” What is not easy at Darlington is passing. Getting around a car running the same speed takes some strategy since the passing zones in the turns are few. “You really have to set a guy up,” Biffle said. “You have to be really slow entering the corner and make a run on him around the corner. Coming off the turns onto the straights, you have to be able to cut to the bottom and get beside him. It is super, super hard to pass at Darlington. There are some tricks that

I have learned over the years, and that is good because that is the only way to pass there.” He hopes the tricks translate in breaking his losing streak. If not, another of his favorite tracks – Dover – comes up next week. “We need to capitalize on these tracks and not get overconfident thinking we can go there having to make up for lost time,” Biffle said. “We have to go there and focus on topfives. We have a chance to win both of them.” | 888-3519

Wear twins to transfer from North Carolina CHAPEL HILL (AP) – North Carolina’s front line just got a little thinner for next season. Twins Travis and David Wear have decided to transfer after one season, leaving the Tar Heels with only a pair of big men for next year

in Tyler Zeller and John Henson. In a statement from the school, coach Roy Williams said the players’ father called him Wednesday night and asked for their release – a request he said “came as a complete surprise.”

“I met with both kids in midApril for our typical end-of-year meetings and together we worked on their development plans for next season,” Williams said. “Both David and Travis seemed to be excited about their futures at UNC.”

The 6-foot-10 forwards were key reserves as freshmen. Travis Wear averaged 3.5 points and 2.2 rebounds in 32 games. David Wear averaged 2.9 points and 2.2 rebounds in 27 games and missed the final nine games with a torn labrum in his left hip.




ometimes, a change of scenery can work wonders for a professional athlete. Take second baseman Kelly Johnson. After struggling mightily in Atlanta last season, Johnson headed west to join the Arizona Diamondbacks. So far, the move has paid powerful dividends. Johnson has emerged as a breakout star with Arizona. Through midweek, Johnson led the National League with nine homers, ranked second in

Long before pitch counts, setup men and closers, Robin Roberts finished what he started. Roberts, the tireless Hall of Fame pitcher who led the Philadelphia Phillies to the 1950 National League pennant as part of the famed “Whiz Kids,” died Thursday. He was 83. He won 286 games and put together six consecutive 20-win seasons. Roberts had 45 career shutouts, 2,357 strikeouts and a lifetime ERA of 3.41.



had much success racing at the narrow 1.366-mile track might think Biffle needs his head examined for suggesting he looks forward to the challenge. He and others say the secret to Darlington success is to focus more on the track than the competition. “You try not to worry about all the stuff around you and all the hoopla that is going on,” Biffle said. “Pay attention to the race track and don’t try to overdrive the car. Don’t ask for more than the car is willing to give. Stay cool and calm and just focus on the race track. That is what that means, especially at Darlington, because it is such a tough place to race. If you go in there thinking about other things, you are going to be in trouble in a hurry.”






slugging percentage at .700 and sported a solid .303 batting average with 18 RBIs and 14 walks. He’s been a potent leadoff man for the Diamondbacks and could be in line for a spot on the NL All-Star team. That’s a far cry from last season in Atlanta. After back-to-back productive years with the Braves in 2007 (.276, 16 homers, 68 RBIs) and 2008 (.287, 12 homers, 69 RBIs), Johnson lost his starting job and his power stroke in ‘09. Johnson hit just .224 with eight homers

and 29 RBIs and appeared in only 103 games after playing in 147 and 150 the previous two campaigns. He gave way to Martin Prado at second, then packed his bags for the desert. Good move. Johnson’s bat has been sizzling in the Arizona sun. He’s found a new home atop the Diamondbacks batting order.

Butler’s Hayward staying in NBA draft INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Butler forward Gordon Hayward tells The Associated Press that he will stay in this year’s NBA draft. He will make the announcement at a news conference Friday afternoon.

On Thursday, after working out in Indianapolis, Hayward said that he only would have withdrawn if something had gone wrong between his announcement to enter the draft April 14 and Saturday’s deadline to pull out. Most analysts project the 6-foot-9 forward with point-guard skills to be selected in the top 10 to 20 picks of the draft. If he is, Hayward would become the highest draft pick in school history. Hayward, the Horizon League player of the year, led the Bulldogs with 15.5 points per game. He led Butler to the national championship game where his half-court shot nearly gave the Bulldogs the win over Duke.

J.B.Holmes lines up his putt on the 18th green during the first round of The Players Championship on Thursday in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. Holmes opened with a 6-underpar 66 to share the lead with Robert Allenby.

Holmes, Allenby share lead at Sawgrass PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Players Championship was such a pushover Thursday that more than half the field broke par. Even Tiger Woods. With scrutiny higher than after the worst tournament of his career, Woods settled down after a shaky start and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make a bogey until his final hole for a 2-under 70 to join the assault on the TPC Sawgrass. J.B. Holmes and Robert Allenby led the way at 6under 66, a stroke ahead of eight players, including Lee Westwood of England and 49-year-old Kenny Perry. In muggy conditions with only a swirling breeze late in the day, 36 players broke 70, the most for the opening round of this tournament since 1994. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a fun day, one of those rounds where everything was going pretty good,â&#x20AC;? said Holmes, who played bogey-free and only once came close to making a bogey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of one of those rounds where itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not easy, but it felt pretty easy.â&#x20AC;? Allenby played in the afternoon, when the breeze kicked up, and only had one lapse with a three-

putt on the par-3 eighth. Conditions were perfect for low scoring, and the Stadium Course allows for that with reachable par 5s and a few hole locations in areas that could be attacked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Greens were a bit slow out there, definitely quite soft after the rain that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had the last couple of days,â&#x20AC;? Allenby said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It definitely made it very accessible, some of those flags. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m happy with the start, just happy to be amongst it.â&#x20AC;? It was a big crowd. Francesco Molinari of Italy had a chance to join the leaders until he chopped up the par-5 ninth hole for a bogey and joined the large group at 68. Those at 69 included Jim Furyk and Vijay Singh, along with Davis Love III, who showed that even a benign Sawgrass still has some bite. He was tied for the lead until making bogeys on the last three holes. Masters champion Phil Mickelson, who has a chance to be No. 1 in the world for the first time with a victory and Woods finishing out of the top five, didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have his best stuff but still managed a 70.

I holed three putts of over 30 foot from the fringe of greens.” David Drysdale, another Scottish player who also went out late in the day, shot a 68. He’s one shot off the lead in a fourman group that included David Horsey of England, Stephen Dodd of Wales and Hennie Otto of South Africa. The biggest gallery followed 17-year-old Matteo Manassero (70), a young Italian making his professional debut. “I enjoyed it,” said Manassero, the low amateur at last month’s Masters. “I played good golf and I stayed patient.” Veteran Colin Montgomerie (76) played alongside Manassero. “I was very impressed by Matteo,” he said. “Very impressed by his play at 17 years old.”

TURIN, Italy (AP) – Paul Lawrie overcame the worst of the weather to shoot a 5-under 67 Thursday and share the lead in the first round of the raindelayed Italian Open. The start of the tournament was delayed two hours to repair damage to the waterlogged course. Lawrie was among the late finishers before play was halted because of darkness with 30 golfers still to complete their rounds. The Scottish player was tied atop the leaderboard with Marcus Fraser of Australia and English duo Graeme Storm and Robert Rock — who all played in calmer conditions. Lawrie began his round late in the afternoon just as heavy rain set in, but still managed six birdies to go with a bogey on the 17th. “It did get fairly messy out there while I was playing, compared to the conditions in the morn-

aturday night’s packed house for the season opener at Bowman Gray Stadium helped prompt track management to expand one of the programs that helps teams financially. Officials said that drivers who finish 11th and below in Modified races will now receive a $50 credit toward the purchase of tires at the track. Previously, the credit was limited to $100 for each of the top 10 finishers. A similar program is now established for the track’s other three divisions. The top 10 finishers in Sportsman, Street Stock and Stadium Stock races will each get a $50 credit. “We’ve been blessed, and we’ve had a great turnout from the community,” promoter Gray Garrison said. “It took all the drivers and race teams to make this happen, so we’d like to give back to them to show our appreciation.” Saturday brings the first of the year’s 100-lap Modified races – in which drivers draw for starting positions after qualifying determines the 24 starters and could provide a big shake up in driver standings. Also on the card are two 30-lap Sportsman races, a 20-lap Street Stock race, two 15-lap Stadium Stock races and the year’s first demolition derby.

Paulson defends crisis response WASHINGTON (AP) – Former Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson said Thursday the U.S. government-brokered rescue sale of Wall Street firm Bear Stearns to JPMorgan Chase & Co. in March 2008 held off the financial crisis for much of that tumultuous year. “If Bear had not been rescued and it had failed, then the meltdown we began to see after Lehman had gone would have started months earlier, and we would have really been in the soup,” Paulson said. He testified at a hearing of the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission, which is investigating the 2008 crisis and the so-called “shadow” banking system. Paulson cautioned that overreaching on financial



Productivity may signal job growth WASHINGTON – U.S. companies are running out of ways to increase productivity from leaner workforces, a sign that they may need to step up hiring in the months ahead. That was the takeaway from reports released Thursday by the Labor Department. Productivity grew at an annual rate of 3.6 percent in the first quarter, better than economists had expected. But it still declined sharply from growth that exceeded 6 percent for each of the previous three quarters.

Nokia to compete with new devices HELSINKI – Nokia Corp. will launch new smart phones to “help close the gap” with competitors that have overtaken the world’s top cell phone maker in the market for high-end devices, its chief executive said Thursday.

overhaul legislation now being debated in the Senate could stifle innovation in the markets. Paulson helped engineer the buyout of Bear Stearns as it veered toward collapse. The Federal Reserve provided a $29 billion federal backstop to JPMorgan Chase in the deal. Paulson said the Bear Stearns rescue highlighted weaknesses in the regulatory system, but officials were unable to fix them before Lehman Brothers collapsed six months later. “No one had the authority to guarantee investment bank liabilities or to put in capital,” Paulson said, adding that officials lacked the power to wind down big firms. With no suitor available

to rescue Lehman, there was no choice but to allow it to fail, Paulson recounted. Critics have said Lehman should not have been allowed to fail, and the decision not to rescue it set off the panic that nearly froze global lending markets. Architects of the federal bailout, including Paulson and the current Treasury secretary, Timothy Geithner, have said they simply didn’t have the power to save the company without private sector help. Addressing the market for so-called repurchase agreements, which banks depended on for massive daily loans from other financial companies – Paulson said no one had recognized its danger as it grew.

Retail gains steam in April NEW YORK (AP) – Americans gave retailers a respectable spring selling season, resulting in a slew of stores raising their earnings outlooks and providing an encouraging sign that the consumer rebound is continuing. As merchants released April revenue figures Thursday that were more muted than March’s torrid pace, discounters including Costco Wholesale Corp. and BJ’s Wholesale Club Inc. as well as luxury retailers emerged as the biggest winners. Limited Brands Inc. and Macy’s Inc. had solid gains. Teen merchants including American Eagle Outfitters Inc. and Abercrombie & Fitch Co. continue to struggle with declines. The figures are based on revenue at stores open at

least a year and are considered a key indicator of a retailer’s health because they exclude growth at stores that open or close during the year. “Consumers took a breather in April,” said Ken Perkins, president of RetailMetrics, a research firm. “But overall, retailers have to be pleased with the spring selling season.” Still, Perkins added that the consumer spending recovery is still likely to be slow amid persistent high unemployment and tight credit. Analysts had expected last month to see a slowdown because an early Easter had pumped up sales in March by as much as 5 percentage points while depressing business by the same amount in April.

Bernanke says loans crucial to recovery WASHINGTON (AP) – Regulators must do all they can to help banks make loans to creditworthy borrowers, especially small businesses, a development that’s critical to strengthening the economic recovery, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said Thursday. It’s a delicate dance for the Fed and other banking regulators. As regulators encourage banks to make loans to sound borrowers, they are also working to make sure banks get back on firmer footing after suffering through the worst financial and economic crises since the 1930s. “Our message is a simple

one: institutions should strive to meet the needs of creditworthy borrowers, and the supervisory agencies should do all they can to help, not hinder, those efforts,” Bernanke said in prepared remarks to a conference on banking in Chicago. “We are also supporting efforts to work with troubled borrowers to bring them back into good standing,” he added. Getting credit to flow more normally again to both people and businesses is an important ingredient to helping the fledging economic recovery gain momentum.

Stocks plunge as Greece riots NEW YORK (AP) – The stock market had one of its most turbulent days in history as the Dow Jones industrials fell to a loss of almost 1,000 points in less than half an hour on fears that Greece’s debt problems could halt the global economic recovery. The market’s plunge came less than 90 minutes before the end of trading. The Dow’s drop was its largest loss ever during the course of a trading day, but it recovered to a loss of 347 at the close. All the major indexes lost more than 3 percent. Still, the Dow was already down more than 200 points as traders watched protests in the streets of Athens on TV. Traders were not comforted by the fact that Greece seemed to be working towards a resolution of its debt problems. Instead, they focused on the possibility that other European countries would also run into trouble, and that the damage to their economies could spread to the U.S. The Dow has lost 631 points, or 5.7 percent, in three days amid worries about Greece. “The market is now realizing that Greece is going to go through a depression over the next couple of years,” said Peter Boockvar, equity strategist at Miller Tabak. “Europe is a major trading partner of ours, and this threatens the entire global growth story.”

Europe faces debt contagion fear LONDON (AP) – As Europe works to put out its smouldering govnerment debt crisis the sparks just keep spreading, with the euro sinking Thursday along with confidence that politicians and central bankers can act fast enough to save the continent from an economic tailspin. Europe’s top central banker downplayed the risks of contagion – but ratings agency Moody’s rattled markets by warning that banks in Portugal, Italy, Spain, Ireland and Britain could all be hurt by a widening debt crisis. The euro sagged 1.1 percent to $1.2687 after ratings agency Moody’s warned that banks in Portugal, Italy, Spain, Ireland and Britain

could all be hurt debt crisis. It was as high as $1.51 late last year. Nerves were further frayed by an ominous rise in Spain’s borrowing costs at a debt auction – a clear sign of fear as investors demand higher rates from borrowers they consider riskier. European leaders acknowledged they were at a difficult point in their struggle to contain the debt crisis. They have agreed to join with the International Monetary Fund to bail out Greece with €110 billion in loans over three years, but fears of more trouble have not subsided. That money is expected to reach Greece in time for it to make a May 19 debt payment it says it can’t make without the help.

But its longer term prospects for avoiding bankruptcy are uncertain, and other governments with weak finances are facing debt downgrades and seeing their borrowing costs creep up as markets see them as riskier. Those worries have pushed down stocks and raised fears that Greece is just the leading edge of another phase of the world financial turmoil, this time focused on government debt instead of banks or mortgages. After months of delays in which Greece’s debt crisis threatened to spiral out of control, European leaders are now stressing their willingness to act in support of their 11-year-old project in sharing a currency.

Greek lawmakers pass crucial austerity bill ATHENS, Greece (AP) – Greek lawmakers have approved a crucial austerity bill needed to tap €110 billion ($140 billion) in bailout loans from the other 15 euro-zone countries and the International Monetary Fund — money needed to avoid a debt default.

The bill passed with 172 votes in favor and 121 against. Prime Minister George Papandreou expelled three of his deputies who abstained and did not vote in favor, kicking them out of his Socialist party’s parliamentary group. The move leaves him with 157 deputies in the 300-memeber parlia-

ment, still a comfortable majority. Greeks have been outraged by the measures, which slash salaries and pensions for civil servants and hike consumer taxes. Thousands of people gathered outside parliament during the vote to protest the measures.


Janice Hastings (right) and Henry Jenkins, friends of Robert J. Woods, hug outside Woods flood-ravaged home Thursday in north Nashville, Tenn. Wood, 74, was swept away by floodwaters from White’s Creek as it raced through the neighborhood during last weekend’s storms and did not survive.

Storm death toll rises to 30 NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Amanda Fatheree had about an hour to flee the floodwaters from her west Nashville home Sunday with her husband, mother and three young children. What she saw when she returned a day later left her heartbroken. Furniture she and her husband spent years paying off stood in their front yard, soaked and caked with mud from deadly flooding caused by record-busting rains that forced thousands to

evacuate – some by boat and canoe. Her children’s toys, clothes, books and games were destroyed, along with two vehicles that were left behind. “When I first got here, I just cried and cried. My whole life was gone,” she said. Officials in Tennessee on Thursday reported the state’s 20th death from the storm. The deaths of at least 30 people in Tennessee, Mississippi and Kentucky were blamed on weekend flooding and tornadoes.

The new death was in Memphis, where police reported that Terrance Williams, 32, went missing Saturday after his car was disabled in rising floodwaters.

El Nino weakens as hurricane season nears WASHINGTON (AP) – The weather-altering El Nino condition in the Pacific Ocean seems to be easing and could be over by June, government climate experts reported Thursday. If conditions do revert to neutral, it could complicate forecasting this summer’s hurricanes, since El Nino years tend to have fewer storms than normal in the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico. Last month, forecasters Philip J. Klotzbach and

William M. Gray of Colorado State University said they foresee above-average storm activity for the Atlantic hurricane season due to a warming of tropical Atlantic “and a more confident view that the current El Nino will weaken.” So-called La Nina years, when the Pacific is colder than usual, can lead to an increase in Atlantic hurricanes, but neutral conditions between the two

make the storm season harder to predict. The government’s hurricane forecast for this summer is due out later this month. El Nino is often noted as warmer than normal water in the tropical Pacific, and when that occurs there are generally warmer than normal winter temperatures in the North Central States and cooler than normal readings in the Southeast and the Southwest.
