Arnold worries censure procedures could be politicized BY DAVID NIVENS ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

GUILFORD COUNTY – Commissioners have approved a new ethics code with a non-binding censure provision Commissioner Steve Arnold does not like. The High Point Republican failed to win support Thursday to remove what he said could become political censure trials. The Guilford County Board of Commissioners later approved the code unanimously after Arnold aired his concerns. Arnold will retire from the board later this year. “Politics could play a role,” Arnold said. “It could happen from either side. You will have feuds, and a commissioner Arnold will say he is going to censure his enemy. That becomes a circus.” Last year, the General Assembly passed a law requiring all local governing bodies to adopt an ethics code by Jan. 1, 2011, but a censure process is not required, said County Attorney Mark Payne. It would take a two-thirds “super majority” of commissioners to hold a censure hearing following the investigation of a complaint. “Every profession has peer review, and the board should be able to call someone out,” said Democratic Commissioner Kirk Perkins. Arnold said he could have been the target of censure in 2005 when several commissioners questioned whether he had used his influence in the tax assessment of residential property after a commercial project failed in 2001. “If this policy had been in effect, a majority would have voted for censure,” Arnold said. Former tax director Jenks Crayton was investigated by state officials who found no wrongdoing in the Arnold case or any other raised by commissioners. Commissioners should take their charges to the district attorney instead, Arnold said. Republican Commissioner Billy Yow said the public can remove commissioners in elections. “It is our responsibility to the public to have censure in the code,” said at-large Democratic Commissioner John Parks of High Point. The code prohibits commissioners from using the office for financial gain and it bans gifts from anyone who could influence a vote. State law regulates campaign contributions. “The censure adds teeth,” said Democratic Commissioner Bruce Davis of High Point. “If it has no teeth, it is not worth the paper it is written on.” | 888-3626


Trial: A censure hearing would proceed like a trial, but the accused board member could seek to remove any “biased” board member from the review panel by majority vote. The board could issue a non-binding censure by a twothirds vote. Open proceedings: “All information pertaining to the case shall be open to public inspection and copying pursuant to the North Carolina public records statutes,” according to the code. “The hearing and any deliberations shall be conducted in open session.”

Confrontation leads to charges


Former Davidson County Sheriff Gerald Hege on Friday told The High Point Enterprise he is going to retire from politics after losing against incumbent Sheriff David Grice Tuesday night. Gary Bartlett, executive director of the N.C. State Board of Elections in Raleigh, said Hege can’t run as a write-in candidate or unaffiliated ballot candidate for the sheriff’s race in November because he lost in the Republican primary. State election statutes mandate that any candidate who loses in a primary can’t run for the same office during that year in the general election.


DAVIDSON COUNTY – The challenge of former Davidson County sheriff Gerald Hege’s candidacy was thrown out Friday morning, as the Davidson County Board of Elections ruled the matter was a “moot” point, said Davidson County Board of Elections Director Ruth Huneycutt.

HIGH POINT – A man and woman were shot Friday inside the Family Dollar on S. Main Street, according to High Point police. At 5:26 p.m., police were dispatched to a shooting call at the Family Dollar at 802 S. Main St., near the Guilford Technical Community College satellite campus. Upon arrival, officers found two people who had sustained gunshot wounds while in the business. Both were transported to High Point Regional Hospital for treatment. According to police, the victims were inside the store making purchases when a man entered and began shooting. Police said Malcolm Adams, 25, was shot in his left elbow and left side. Cherele Livingston, 21, was shot in her left knee. Both are in good condition and were expected to be released Friday night, according to police. No other injuries were reported and the motive for the shooting is undetermined, police said. Police wouldn’t release any fur-

HIGH POINT – High Point police Chief Jim Fealy said an offer was made to have the department pay Christopher Maney’s hospital bills after an incident involving a K9 this week. “We made the offer based on compassion, and I felt like it was the right thing to do at the time,” said Fealy. “After reviewing the incident, I’ve let the (city) attorneys know it’s up to them whether that offer still exists or not.” He added that the K9 instructor involved in

The chief said the K9 handler and other officers at the scene did not know anybody was at the house. “We didn’t know this at the time, but (Maney) later told us he had been in the homeless camp, and he saw the cops coming and for reasons unbeknownst to us, and I guess known only to him, he decided to run and hide. He ran and hid at the house on Young Place,” Fealy said. “He never announced his presence. He knew the police were there, knew the dog was there. He chose to hide himself in a way that made him vulnerable. “I wish he hadn’t done that, and I wish he hadn’t gotten bitten, but I don’t see anything we could have done differently that would have prevented it.” | 888-3531

Sheriff David Grice easily beat Hege during Tuesday’s Republican Primary. The board, which met at the Davidson County Governmental Center, unanimously voted to dismiss the petitions, Huneycutt said. After the hearing, an altercation ensued between Hege’s supporters and those affiliated with Salvation’s Way, Prout said. As members of both sides left the meeting, a woman in her group had her hand slammed into the elevator by a Hege supporter, Prout claimed. She said her brother, James Floyd Stanley Jr., attempted to identify the man in the governmental center parking lot and find out the license tag number from his truck. “(Hege supporters) put the guy in the truck and hid him, so we couldn’t find him,” Prout said. “My brother went behind the truck to get the license tag number, and another one of (Hege’s) people sat down on the bumper to hide the license tag number. My brother and the man on the bumper exchanged words. Then he lunged off the bumper to attack my brother, and when he did that, two other men attempted to jump on him. “I don’t know if the other

two men were able to make contact or not because at that point we were all in the middle trying to separate everybody.” Hege said he attended the meeting but wasn’t present when the altercation occurred. When officers with the Lexington Police Department arrived at the scene, the confrontation had ended, said Capt. Mark Sink. The people involved, told officers they would file charges with the magistrate, Sink said, adding that there will be no investigation. Prout said the woman who had her hand slammed in the elevator had to be taken to the hospital for X-rays. She said her brother has filed warrants with the Davidson County magistrate. According to warrants, Stanley, of Lexington filed simple assault charges with a magistrate against Jerry Moose and Randall Hobert Griffie, both of Thomasville. In return, Griffie and Moose filed simple assault charges with a magistrate against Stanley. Davidson County Sheriff’s Office Maj. E.B. Grubb said the sheriff’s office is not involved in an investigation of the incident. | 888-3657

GUILFORD COUNTY – The Feral Cat Assistance Program will sponsor a $5 animal rabies vaccination clinic on May 22. The clinic will start at 9 p.m. at Pet Supplies Plus, 2924 High Point Road, Greensboro. Dogs on leashes and cats in carriers are welcome. State law requires rabies vaccinations for all domestic animals 4 months old and older. Pregnant pets should not be vaccinated. The law applies even if pets are kept indoors. Barnyard pets such as goats, horses and cows should also be vaccinated against rabies for their protection. Unvaccinated pets exposed to a rabid animal must be euthanized or confined for six months in a veterinarian’s facility at the owner’s expense.

George Mitchell, who is President Barack Obama’s special representative for Mideast peace, is in the region for the start of four months of indirect talks between the Israelis and Palestinians that aim to bridge vast differences between

U.S. Army soldiers perched on this small hilltop base in Kandahar province’s Zhari district had a ringside seat to the early morning fighting. It snapped a lull in violence that had lasted almost three weeks while the Taliban focused on taxing the poppy crop, one of its main sources of revenue.

TOM BLOUNT: Newspapers have been around and under attack for a while. TOMORROW

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


Nation needs and appreciates its ‘loyal opposition’ A reader recently asked to be awakened from his “nightmare” of hate, violence and racism affecting our nation. He neglected to give a single, valid example of these traits in any of the Republicans, independents, “Tea Partiers” or journalists he cited. The only vitriol or intolerance I detected seemed to come from him as reflected in his comments. If one takes the time to minimally analyze the political events and debates taking place since Obama took office, one clear conclusion is that a growing “opposition” exists, and becomes stronger each day, to the distorted agenda of his administration. That opposition isn’t simply from Republicans, but from Democrats and independents as well. I challenge anyone to criticize the patriotism of any of us. A similar, more pungent “opposition” brought our country into existence from George III of Britain. I’m sure it crossed George’s mind that “Why can’t we just all get along?” One can think what he wants about colonialism or imperialism, but we are here now and must do the best with what we have “inherited.”



Among those inheritances were the Declaration of Independence, Constitution and Bill of Rights. What wasn’t provided for in those documents was a “right” to government-provided health care, the “right” not to be offended by someone’s words, the “right” of aliens to over-run our national borders or the prevention of opposing views. We cannot allow anyone to redefine racism as an opposition to unpopular viewpoints. The voters of Virginia, New Jersey and Massachusetts, who replaced their Democratic leaders recently, were not violent, racist or mean-spirited. They accomplished their goals as a patriotic and “loyal opposition.” The “minor media” would have that you be told otherwise. Get set for yet more surprises in the November elections. Do we not deserve the same satisfaction as our compatriots in Virginia, New Jersey and Massachusetts? CHUCK BINO High Point

The State Highway Patrol is not having a good year. In fact, it isn’t having a good century. Over the past decade, according to The News & Observer of Raleigh, at least 27 troopers have been disciplined for sexual misconduct. Last June, a trooper was canned after a “sexual encounter” with the wife of another trooper, the paper said. In 2008, another trooper was fired after a video was made public of him abusing a police dog. Now comes Patrol Capt. James Williams Jr., who was stopped by a Butner Public Safety officer after swerving in a Mustang convertible on I-85 in the early hours of April 3. Butner Public Safety Capt. W.B. Williams went to the site of the stop, then sent word to his boss: “Advise him I have a trooper stopped,” according to a transcript of the call. “He is a captain with the Highway Patrol and he is extremely 10-55.” His supervisor immediately translated the police code: “You say he was extremely drunk?” asked Maj. A.W. Moss. Usually a driver stopped in that condition will be taken to a law enforcement agency or booked into a cell. In this case, Butner officers took Williams to a Best Western hotel to get a room. No charges were filed. The matter was resolved “without report,” according to Butner Public Safety. What a deal. A lot of wobbly drivers would surely like to resolve their traffic stops in similar fashion, but Gov. Bev Perdue is unlikely to put up with it. She has promised a no-tolerance policy for illegal behavior, and if a Highway Patrol investigation bears out the facts as reported, she’ll no doubt show Williams the door. There are several troubling things about this episode. One is that Williams, a 21-year member of the patrol, would have such poor judgment as to drink and drive – and if the recording of the first report is accurate, to have become “extremely” intoxicated and driven. How does a veteran commander lose touch with one of the basic safety practices for any driver? Another is that local public safety officers in Butner did not immediately arrest the trooper and process him as they would any other driver suspected of driving while impaired. The Butner officials’ decision to take Williams to a hotel was dangerous, given that he could have gotten behind the wheel of another vehicle. This sad affair reflects poorly on two law enforcement agencies who should never cut such slack for any driver regardless of rank. It is an outrage.

We can make our opinions known and consider opposite views with words. Words are how we think and understand concepts. But lately, we have become casual in using words. I hear Tea Party activists use the word “revolution” Are they serious? They must be joking. The word means the violent upheaval of government. I must believe that some people just like powerful words and use them without any sense of proportion. Some words are too strong. People are sometimes so impressed with the sound of words that they use them without considering their true meaning. Surely, we don’t want people to take to the streets and use violence to achieve their aims. We are America, the greatest democracy in the world. We believe in electoral processes, one vote for one person. We are for the ballot and the referendum. Words tell the truth when they accurately describe things and happenings. In such cases, they are dependable and seldom let us down if we choose to respect them. Words need to be revered for what they are, or they will lie. Yes, they can lie as well. Someone decides to use them for deception, to call a spade a diamond, to call a cat a dog. Lies are when we know the right names but then replace them with wrong ones. We act to misrepresent. We purposely manipulate definitions for self-serving reasons. Politics might enter

the picture. Or we can simply be careless. We can use words too loosely and never consider their fantastic power. Words are not inert and can be agents for action and real change. “Socialism” is a term that OPINION is widely misused. Think of true socialism not when the Kristine government helps failing Kaiser businesses, but when it puts ■■■ the prosperous industries under its ownership. Think of socialism when there is an organized movement to redistribute a nation’s wealth, not when needy people are aided through a generous domestic agenda. We can demonstrate great social responsibility without being a socialist government or even leaning to the far left. “Tyranny” is another word that is used inappropriately. America does not have

People must remember that words affect outcomes; they have ramifications. tyrants, cruel autocratic leaders. It does not have dictators, and words so hyperbolic should not be used. People must remember that words affect outcomes; they have ramifications. Strive to tell the truth with words. Words lean toward truth. They were first uttered as expressions describing the objective world. While we are constantly presented with half-truths and fictions, we must take it upon ourselves to be accountable for the written and spoken word. KRISTINE KAISER lives in Kernersville.

Vatican foreign minister to visit Cuba in June HAVANA (AP) – The Vatican’s foreign minister is coming to Cuba next month to lead discussions on the island’s economic challenges and the effects of emigration and the families torn apart by it. Roman Catholic Archbishop Dominique Mamberti will mark Catholic Social Week June 12-20 by leading discussions among church leaders from around the island, as well as elders from other religions, said Orlando Marquez, spokesman for Havana’s Conference of Bishops. Topics debated will include “the necessity for dialogue and reconciliation among Cubans,” specifically the divide between islanders and those who left for the United States and now form part of the outspoken Cuban-American exile community.

Oregon Little League coach stays after prayer complaint MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) – The board of a Little League has voted to keep a coach who led his team in prayer and remove a board member who pulled his daughter from the team. Medford National Little League President Kathy Meyer said the board is “100 percent” behind coach Chris Palmer. “He will remain the Indians man-

ager,” Meyer said. “It’s now time we move on and just play ball.” Mike E. Miles had pulled his 10-year-old daughter from the Indians team, complaining that Palmer forced religion on the kids by leading them in prayer and quoting Bible verses. “All I wanted was for my daughter to sign up and play baseball this spring,” said Miles.

Randall Atcheson was recognized early as a prodigy on both organ and piano and was the only student in the history of the Juilliard School to earn simultaneous degrees in piano and organ. In 1991, Atcheson made his Carnegie Hall debut. Following that highly successful event, he was added to the distinguished international roster of Steinway Artists.With an extra ordinary gift that he openly credits to his creator, he raises well-crafted music to the level of greatness, and he takes masterpieces and makes them unforgettable. Recently, Atcheson performed abroad in France, Germany, El Salvador, and Italy. On November 3, 2010, he will play his 10th concert at Carnegie Hall.

Moral Exhortation or Change of Environment

Ecclesiastes 3: 1-2

The American philosopher John Dewey claimed that habits always involve an interaction between the moral agent and the environment. Moral exhortation is likely to be ineffective, he argued, in the absence of an environment which makes the desired actions possible, or even desirable. Telling poor people to get a good education and find a job is useless in the absence of effective and affordable schools. When a decision is made to make some moral improvement, the most effective way to set about bringing about that improvement is often to change the environment. If you’re going to quit smoking, it helps to get rid of the cigarettes, ashtrays, and other smoking paraphernalia. Likewise, if we are going to attempt any kind of moral improvement, we should consider the environment within which that improvement is supposed to take place. An alcoholic who works in a bar is likely to have a tough time staying on the wagon, and perhaps there is something to be aid for the benefit of a change of scenery and a change of companions, especially if your companions are part of the problematic environment.

Then a natural occurrence produced an unusual situation: women started havSTUDYING ing babies. THE CHURCH Many of those women had Mark not joined Nickens churches â&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  but still wanted their babies baptized. This caused a problem. Remember that in Europe everyone belonged to a church, and so church members had their children baptized. But what do you do when non-church members desired their child to be baptized? That was new, and new situations call for creativity. The creative response was the Half-Way Covenant. Under this plan, dating from 1656, non-church member parents could have their children baptized as long as they agreed to raise the children in the church and lead an upstanding, moral life. In return, the non-church member parents would attend the church and raise their children in a Christian environment, but they would not be allowed to vote in church matters nor



n the American colonial period, Europeans came to the New Land for a number of reasons: some to escape religious persecution; some to find work; and some to find adventure. This quickly produced a problem for the churches in the colonies. The solution introduced a characteristic into Christianity which has become a mainstay of the Christian faith: the understanding that a person can join a church without their parents being members of the same church. That may sound obvious, but it took awhile to get there and hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why. The European experience had meant this: everyone belonged to a church. Prior to the Protestant Reformation of the 1500s, everyone belonged to the Catholic Church. With the introduction in the 1500s of denominations such as Lutherans, Church of England (aka Episcopalians in America), Anabaptists/Baptists, Presbyterians, etc., people had a choice. But this much remained the same: everyone still belonged to a church. Not everyone was a regular attendee, but everyone did belong to a church. (Exceptions did exist, but usually for people who belonged to another religion, such as Jews.) European Christians believed this system would take hold in the American colonies, but it did not. Many colonists did not publicly join a church. Remember, not everyone came to the colonies for religious reasons. Over time an odd situation developed (for that time): a large number of colonists had been baptized as infants while in Europe, but once in America had either ceased attending church or chose not to join but still attended.

State brings back popular Energy Star rebate program BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

TRIAD – If you didn’t take advantage of the first phase of the Energy Star State Appliance Rebate program last month, you’ll have another chance in June. The second phase of the program begins June 1, and instead of offering instant rebates, it will offer mail-in rebates for a larger variety of Energy Star-qualified appliances. A $300 rebate will be offered on air conditioning units, gas furnaces and heat pumps. A $200 rebate will be offered on water heaters. The program will run until the nearly $1 million in funding leftover from phase one runs out. Phase one was held April 22-25 and began with $8.6 million in funding from the federal government. More than 54,000 applianc-


Phase two of the Energy Star State Appliance Rebate Program will begin in North Carolina June 1. The following Energy Star-qualified items are eligible for a rebate: $300 rebate: Air conditioners, gas furnaces, heat pumps $200 rebate: Water heaters $150 rebate: Refrigerators $100 rebate: Clothes washers $75 rebate: Freezers, dishwashers es were sold in North Carolina in phase one. “We were very pleased with those four days,” said Seth Effron, communications director for the

N.C. Energy Office. “Given the interest in phase one, we think we’ll see a lot of interest in phase two.” Effron said the energy office is busy refunding retailers who participated in the first phase, which offered a 15 percent instant rebate on Energy Star clothes washing machines, refrigerators, dishwashers and freezers. Those items will also be included in phase two, but rebates for the items will vary. Herman Hunter, one of the owners of Hunter Heating and Air Conditioning on W. Ward Avenue in High Point, said the program may stimulate some sales. “It might push somebody over the edge who has already been thinking about replacing a unit,” Hunter said. “But it probably won’t cause someone to purchase something out of nowhere.” He noted that an Energy Star air conditioning unit could cost about

$3,500. The newer units, however, can save about 45 percent a year in energy costs compared to units built more than five years ago, he said. Other rebates, including a $300 rebate from Piedmont Natural Gas on Energy Star natural gas units, can make the deal all that more sweet, Hunter said. But consumers need to do their research to determine what other rebates are available and how much they can actually save. “Because of the rebate, you could save another $300 on a gas furnace,” he said. “That makes the furnace a lot more attractive. The rebates can end up being substantial, but consumers need to be their own advocate and find out what rebates are out there.” For more information on the program, go to

Gatlin to speak at GTCC graduation ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

GREENSBORO – Entertainer Larry Gatlin will be the featured speaker Thursday at Guilford Technical Community College’s commencement ceremonies at the Greensboro Coliseum. A record 1,085 students will graduate, topping last year’s class of 1,071 graduates. The 7 p.m. event is Gatlin open to the public. Gatlin, of Austin, Texas helped establish the Larry Gatlin School of Entertainment Technology on the college’s High Point campus. A frequent campus visitor, Gatlin has established a strong relationship with GTCC and with college President Don Cameron.


Hits: Larry Gatlin’s best known hit songs include the Grammy-winning “Broken Lady,” the Gold Album “All the Gold in California,” “Houston (Means I’m One Day Closer To You),” “She Used to be Somebody’s Baby,” “Love Is Just A Game” and “Sure Feels Like Love.” He also is known for his Broadway role in the “Will Roger Follies” in 1994. Release: Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin Brothers’ most recent release is “Pilgrimage,” which was produced by Johnny Cash’s son, John Carter Cash. Gatlin, 62, was an English major at the University of Houston, where he received a football scholarship. He entered law school but dropped out to pursue his interest as a singer and songwriter. Graduates include 967 degree students and 148 students who have earned diplomas. Some graduates will receive two degrees, bringing the total number of awards to 1,115.

Among those in the graduation line will be 323 students who are expected to finish their class work in summer school. Students will receive associate degrees or diplomas for their studies. A student in the twoyear program must have a minimum of 64 semester hours of credit to graduate. Diplomas require 36 to 48 semester hours of credit.

Movie Gallery to close Archdale site ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

ARCHDALE – After dodging a list of cuts earlier this year, the Archdale Movie Gallery will close as the movie rental chain shuts down its remaining U.S. locations. An employee at the store, located at 10102 S. Main St., confirmed the store was closing in the near future, though the date had not yet been determined. It is operating as normal and will hold a liquidation sale before it closes. New memberships are being discouraged. Movie Gallery, which owns Movie Gallery and Hollywood Video, announced the closure of 760 stores across the country in March, including a store in Lexington and a store in Clemmons. It


closed the group of stores after filing for bankruptcy. The Archdale store was not a part of the closures at that time. It also currently operates several other Triad locations, including stores in Advance and Mocksville. A recording on the Media Gallery media hot line says that due to company policy, “for the most part, Media Gallery is not responding to media inquiries.” The closings fall in line with a nationwide trend of movie rental stores struggling against online or mail-in services like Netflix. Blockbusters in Lexington and Thomasville closed earlier this year. A Hollywood Video on N. Main Street in High Point closed in 2007.

Survey reveals annual gardening trends plan to use retailers for their spring garden planning, while 37 percent plan to gain knowledge from their neighbors. â&#x20AC;˘ More than one-third plan to use books and magazines (34 percent and 31 percent, respectively) for their spring garden planning. â&#x20AC;˘ Two-thirds (66 percent) of respondents who have a garden plan to grow their own vegetables this year. â&#x20AC;˘ More than threefourths (76 percent) are motivated to grow their own vegetables because it will yield vegetables with better quality, taste, and nutrition. â&#x20AC;˘ More than half the respondents (52 percent) say they plan to have a medium (20â&#x20AC;&#x2122;x20â&#x20AC;&#x2122;) or large (20â&#x20AC;&#x2122;x40â&#x20AC;&#x2122;) vegetable garden in 2010 â&#x20AC;˘More than two-fifths (42 percent) agree that growing their own vegetables will be cheaper than buying from a store. More gardeners each year want to grow heirloom tomatoes. According to Wikipedia, An heirloom tomato is an open-pollinated (non-hybrid) heirloom cultivar of tomato. Heirloom tomatoes have become increasingly popular and more readily available in

recent years. Heirloom tomato cultivars can be found in a wide variety of colors, shapes, flavors and sizes. Some cultivars can be prone to cracking or lack disease resistance. This year, I am growing two heirloom varieties in my garden: Black Krim â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A dark red to brown cultivar often cited in seed catalogs as being from the â&#x20AC;&#x153;island of Krimâ&#x20AC;? in the Black Sea, better known as the Crimean peninsula in Ukraine.

Brandywine â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The tomato listed as simply â&#x20AC;&#x153;Brandywineâ&#x20AC;? is one of the tomato varieties responsible for the ascendance of the popularity of heirloom varieties due to its excellent flavor and somewhat clouded history. Wikipedia describes this variety as a large fruited pink (red flesh, clear skin) variety produced on vigorous potato leaf foliage plants, Brandywine was passed on from the Sudduth family to an Ohio tomato enthusiast named Ben Quisenberry.

5 Love child grows up feeling sting EAR ABBY: My mother became pregnant with me in 1965 when she was 20 and divorced from her husband. My father was a married man who knew about me, but made no effort to see me. I know my mother believed he would leave his wife for her, and because I closely resemble him â&#x20AC;&#x201C; according to family members â&#x20AC;&#x201C; she must have felt terrible when I was growing up. I always felt she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t love me as much as she loved my brothers. I have grown up with a hole inside me where a dad was supposed to be. I have never felt worthy or deserving of anything in my life, and now my mother has cut me off from the family. Should I try to see if my father wants to know me now? Maybe time has mellowed him. I feel like he is a great big unfinished spot in my life. What should I do? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Alone And Unloved, Monroe, La.

ach year the Garden Writerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Association conducts a survey of gardeners to see what kind of plants they will be buying as well as other gardening activities. This always shows trends of colors, textures and products that gardeners will be using. This year the survey shows a record number of consumer households plan to purchase their early spring garden plants at garden centers and local retail stores compared to mass merchants and DIY stores this spring.When the Garden Writers Association Foundation (GWAF) started tracking the early spring gardening preferences of consumers in 2005, only 40 percent of the respondents planned to buy most of their spring plants at garden centers compared to 51 percent who favored mass merchants. From 2007-09, consumer preference was more evenly split between garden centers (46 percent-47 percent) and mass merchants (43 percent-44 percent) with a slight edge favoring garden centers.

“If I look confused, it’s because I’m thinking.” - movie magnate Samuel L. Goldwyn. If today’s declarer was thinking, it wasn’t along the right lines. When West led a trump against four hearts, East took the ace and returned a trump. South won and led a club, and East captured dummy’s king and led his last trump. South’s cause was hopeless. If he led a spade, West could win and cash the queen of clubs, so South ran the diamonds to discard the jack of clubs but was then stuck in dummy. Forced to lead a spade, he lost two spades.

THIRD TRICK South’s play was confused. He could lead a spade at Trick Three and try to guess, but his best line was to draw trumps, run the diamonds to pitch a club, and exit with a club. East would win and force South to ruff a club, and South could then lead a spade. If West played low, South could reason that East, who had shown two aces, was unlikely to have another. So South could put up the king of spades to fulfill the contract.

In all exercise, calorie burning depends on the strenuousness of the exercise, how much work it requires. Jogging can be as demanding as rope jumping. It depends on the pace of each exercise. For a novice rope jumper, jumping rope is exhausting. The person has to learn how to balance the body, and many muscles are involved in doing that. Jogging is a more natural motion for people, and the chief factors involved in calorie burning include the jogging speed and the terrain – hill jogging versus straight-path jogging. Jogging at a rate of a mile in eight and a half minutes – a fairly brisk pace – is equivalent to jumping rope at a speed of 100 to 120 turns of the rope a minute. Starting a rope-jumping program is very tiring. Practice reduces the effort. However, even when a person has learned good jumping skills, it’s still a hard exercise. A beginner shouldn’t attempt more than a few minutes of jumping at first, and the speed of the rope turning ought to be about 60 to 70 turns a minute. DR.

McFast at Darlington McMurray sets qualifying record DARLINGTON, S.C. (AP) — Jamie McMurray couldn’t help smiling during his record-setting lap at Darlington Raceway. Turned out, he was one of few to leave the track happy. McMurray set a Darlington record of 180.370 mph to lead qualifying Friday for the Southern 500. Seven-time Darlington winner Jeff Gordon was a whisker behind at 180.323 and Brian Vickers third in 179.987. All three bettered the old mark that Matt Kenseth set a year ago.

“I was like grinning in the car because you just don’t get to have this kind of lap very often,” McMurray said. It was the fifth caMcMurray reer pole and second this season for the Daytona 500 champion. And it came on a day when racers had a hard enough time staying on course at the track “Too Tough To Tame.” Last week’s winner at Richmond, Kyle Busch, scraped the wall on his qualifying run, drawing cheers from those in the stands in front of the start-finish line. Busch will start 39th on Saturday night. Dale Earnhardt Jr. wrecked

on his second lap of practice and moved to a back up car. He was so spooked by the track, Earnhardt Jr. predicted he’d show up here one year, have another bad run and give up the sport. That’s an attitude “Little E” didn’t inherit from his late father — Dale Earnhardt is second on Darlington’s career list with nine victories. Earnhardt finished 19th fastest. Mark Martin, who won this race at 50 years old a year ago, had the fifth fastest time and will start alongside Ryan Newman. Roush Fenway Racing star Carl Edwards could not get in on time and used his top 35 position in owners points to make the field. Edwards will start 41st. Speeds increased again in the

Sprint Cup series third visit since a multimillion dollar repaving project smoothed out the rough edges of the six-decade-old, eggshaped superspeedway. Where the choppy surface in the past might give racers time to correct and yield a gentle “Darlington stripe,” now drivers edge harder into the wall and lead to bigger problems. “It makes it pretty hairy,” said Gordon, who shares the track record of five Southern 500s with Cale Yarborough. McMurray has had his struggles with Darlington since his first Sprint Cup visit in 2003. He had qualified inside the top 10 just once in nine previous races and has only finished in the top 15 once in his last four events.

Oh, brother! ment.


Kurt Fulginiti of Gardner-Webb (left) and sibling Max Fulginiti of High Point University pose before their teams played Friday night at Williard Stadium. to Presbyterian and Gardner-Webb, but the outfielder first signed with HPU and the infielder chose the Runnin’ Bulldogs. “If it would have worked out, that would have been an option,” Max said. “But I never would have thought we’d be playing each other right now if you’d have asked me this four years ago.” This weekend’s series marks only the second as foes for the brothers, as G-W only recently made the move from the Atlantic Sun Conference. Still, the novelty of the matchup is not lost on their teammates. “They’ll give me a hard time,” Kurt said with a smile. “ ‘We’re facing the better Fulginiti today,’ something like that.” And both sets of teammates have asked for scouting reports. Max had the perfect answer for his fellow Panthers: “I told them I haven’t seen him play since high school – I really can’t help you out that much.” The brothers do talk regularly throughout the season, exchanging tips on upcoming conference foes and keeping a very close eye on each other’s stats. Kurt, who stands 6-0, 215 pounds, bats right and throws right. Entering the weekend series, he had starts in all 44 games for G-W (21-23, 7-11 Big South) and posted a .311 bat-

ting average with 40 runs scored, 60 hits, 15 doubles, a triple, eight homers and 39 RBIs. Max, listed at 6-1, 201, bats from the left side and throws right for HPU (22-23, 8-10). With starts in all 45 Panthers games, he owns the second-highest average on the team at .375 and has 40 runs scored, 66 hits, 22 doubles, one triple, one homer and 37 RBIs. “He always has more home runs than me, but I’m beating him in the average department right now,” Max offered. Replied Kurt: “I beat him last year, though.” Who will get the upper hand this weekend? Max, who tied a Big South record last year with a 32-game hitting streak, certainly hopes this meeting goes his way after what happened last year in Boiling Springs. Kurt: “Last year was pretty fun.” Max, quickly interjecting: “It wasn’t very fun. I think I went 1-for-11, had my hit streak come to an end.” Kurt, still searching his memory: “I hit a couple home runs that weekend, and I think we won two out of three.” Now, Max is “looking for a small bit of redemption,” he said. “We’ll see,” offered Kurt, smiling. “It’ll be fun,” they both concluded. | 888-3526




arlington Raceway owns two of the most colorful nicknames ever given to a speedway – “The Lady In Black” and “The Track Too Tough To Tame.” That got me to wondering. Which drivers have tamed Darlington the most? So, I did a little research and not surprisingly found the most successful drivers at Darlington reads like a who’s who of the sport. In all, 43 drivers won races at Darlington.

Connecticut basketball coach Jim Calhoun, coming off a year marred by health problems, an NCAA investigation and a disappointing performance on the court, signed a five-year, $13 million contract, the school announced Friday. The Hall of Fame coach will be paid $2 million retroactive to last season and $2.3 million next season. Calhoun, who turns 68 on Monday, had been making $1.6 million under a contract that was set to expire on June 30.


y the time Sunday afternoon rolls around, either Max or Kurt Fulginiti likely will feel a sense of disappoint-

One may play lights-out while the other struggles. High Point could win the crucial Big South Conference series, or visiting Gardner-Webb might take it. No matter what the brothers are feeling, though, Michael and Sandy Fulginiti figure to SPORTS leave Williard Stadium happy. For the last time, they get to Steve watch their senior twins play Hanf baseball on the same field. ■■■ “Dad has a big master schedule of all our games,” explained Max, the HPU right fielder. Chimed in Kurt, the Gardner-Webb third baseman: “He’s got it down to a ‘T.’ They pick Friday to watch me or Max play, Saturday to go see our little brother play, then Sunday to go see one of us play.” What a luxury for the Fulginiti family next year, then, when the youngest of four brothers – Charlotte Christian School football and baseball standout Sam – is the last one to follow on the college circuit. The high school senior has signed to play football at Elon. As for the past four years, that’s been quite a juggling act. Max and Kurt Fulginiti helped lead Charlotte Christian’s baseball team to a pair of NCISAA state championships – beating Wesleyan Christian Academy in the semifinals their senior year – and were a powerful 1-2 punch on the Pineville Post 337 American Legion squad. Both aspired to play Division I baseball and had a number of offers to consider, but nowhere seriously as a package deal. “The thought crossed our minds, but it just never really happened,” Kurt said. “High Point had their needs, Gardner-Webb had their needs they needed to fill, so it just so happened we went to different schools.” The brothers did take official visits together



Fulginitis face each other on diamond for last time



Twenty-five drivers captured multiple victories. David Pearson tops the list with 10 Darlington victories, followed by Dale Earnhardt with nine. Jeff Gordon paces all active drivers and ranks third overall with seven wins. The five-time winners include Cale Yarborough, Bobby Allison, Darrell Waltrip and Bill Elliott. Harry Gant won four times, while Herb Thomas, Buck Baker, Richard Petty and Dale Jarrett each took three victories.

The two-time winners are Fireball Roberts, Joe Weatherly, Fred Lorenzen, Nelson Stacy, LeeRoy Yarborough, Buddy Baker, Terry Labonte, Mark Martin, Sterling Marlin, Jeff Burton, Ward Burton, Jimmie Johnson and Greg Biffle. Folks, that’s an impressive collection of NASCAR talent. It’ll be fun to see who conquers Darlington Raceway tonight and becomes the latest name on this illustrious scroll.

Moyer (4-2) struck out five and faced one batter over the minimum to earn his 262nd career victory. The soft-tossing lefthander baffled Atlantaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hitters with an assortment of low-80s fastballs and pinpoint control.


Westwood finds peak on back nine PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Lee Westwood tries to peak for the biggest tournaments. And while he doesn’t put The Players Championship in his top five, it’s big enough that he is playing some of his best golf going into the weekend. Westwood ran off three straight birdies to start his back nine Friday on his way to a 7-under 65 to build a one-shot lead over Heath Slocum, Francesco Molinari of Italy and Ryuji Imada. “As you get older, it gets harder to peak all the time when you want to,” said Westwood, a 37-year-old Englishman. “You have to pick and choose your ones, and you want to play well in the biggest tournaments. And this is one of the biggest tournaments.” There’s a chance it might finally start playing like one. Westwood was at 12-under 132, the lowest score to lead after 36 holes at The Players Championship since 1994, when Greg Norman was at 14 under on his way to setting the 72-hole record. But as the wind picked up and the temperatures rose late in the afternoon, there were signs that the TPC Sawgrass was starting to get firm after two days of relatively soft conditions. Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson will be around for the weekend, which is about all that could be said for golf’s two biggest stars. Woods overcame one tee shot that flew off to the right at a 45-degree angle and gave him double bogey for a 1-under 71. Mickelson flirted with the cut line late in the day until making a tough chip look easy for birdie on the 16th. He shot a 71. They were at 3-under 141, nine shots behind. That might be too far back on a course where there already have been 73 rounds in the 60s, the most after two days on the Stadium Course since 1993. But with more heat and more wind, the final two days


St. Johns Sheriff’s Deputies cuff and pick up Travis Parmelee, of Jacksonville, Fla. after he was Tasered by the deputies following repeated requests for him to calm down while in the area behind the 11th hole at The Players Championship on Friday. Parmelee had been allegedly yelling and heckling at fans and golfers. Parmelee was charged with disorderly intoxication and resisting arrest without violence for the incident. could be as unpredictable as ever. “Because the character of the course is changing so much from the morning to the afternoon, the guys that are 2-, 3-, 4-under par are in the tournament,” Mickelson said. “Because if they shoot 6-, 7-, 8-under par, they’re

going to move right up the leaderboard. And it’s going to be difficult for the leaders to pull away.” It’s going to be really hard for major champions like Angel Cabrera, Stewart Cink, Vijay Singh and defending champion Henrik Stenson to make any move at all.

Woods overcomes mistakes, makes cut at Players PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — The perception of Tiger Woods on the golf course has changed so much in a week, evident by the first question he faced Friday after scratching out a 1-under 71 at The Players Championship. “It looks like you did make the cut, so you’re playing on the weekend. Feel good?” Woods once went seven

years without missing the cut. Last week at Quail Hollow was only the sixth missed cut of his career. Yet there were so many questions whether his personal turmoil was a distraction in his golf game that even Woods playing on the weekend at the TPC Sawgrass was not such a sure thing until he settled into fairways and greens and pars over the final hour.

He wound up at 3-under 141, and was safe. He wasn’t celebrating, not when he was nine shots behind Lee Westwood, the 36-hole leader among early starters. “I wasn’t quite as sharp today I was yesterday,” Woods said. It was an ordinary score given the easiest conditions on the Stadium Course in 16 years. What made it ex-


Former Wake Forest quarterback Riley Skinner made the most of his minicamp tryout with the New York Giants last weekend. Impressed by his workouts, the Giants signed Skinner to a two-year free agent contract on Friday and waived another undrafted quarterback — Dominic Randolph of Holy Cross — who they had signed after last month’s NFL draft. The Giants also signed Kentucky linebacker Micah Johnson. Skinner and Johnson will begin to compete for a spot on the Giants roster during the squad’s organized team activities throughout the months of May and June, leading up to the Giants’ minicamp which is scheduled for June 15-17. Including Skinner, New

York currently has four quarterbacks on its roster. Six-year veteran Eli Skinner Manning is the Giants’ starter, Six-year backup Jim Sorgi, second-year man Rhett Bomar and rookie Skinner will compete for spots behind Manning. Skinner finished his Wake Forest career as arguably the most-decorated quarterback in school history. A four-year starter, Skinner set school career records for completion percentage (.669), passing yards (9,762), completions (903), attempts (1,349), touchdown passes (60) and passing efficiency (136.9). Skinner is also the winningest quarterback in school history with 31 victories as a starter.

Skinner finished one completion shy of breaking the ACC record for career completion percentage, just behind former Virginia and current Houston Texan quarterback Matt Schaub. Skinner was also one of three quarterbacks in ACC history to throw for 2,000 or more yards in all four seasons. Skinner was the 2006 ACC Rookie of the Year after leading the Deacons to the conference title. The Jacksonville, Fla. native was a two-time All-ACC honoree and a recipient of the 2009 Jim Tatum Award, which is given to the league’s top senior scholar-athlete in football. As a senior in 2009, Skinner set school season records for passing yards (3,160), touchdown passes (26), passing efficiency (147.81) and total offensive yards (3,216).

Haynesworth fails to show at ‘Skins camp ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — Albert Haynesworth was absent again Friday when the Washington Redskins opened their second voluntary minicamp under new coach Mike Shanahan. The two-time All-Pro defensive tackle remains unhappy with the Redskins’ switch to a 3-4 defense and would prefer to be traded. He has also irked Shanahan by working with his own trainer and staying away from all of the team’s voluntary offseason conditioning sessions. Haynesworth, who has been paid $32 million of the $41 million guaranteed in the contract he signed with the Redskins

last year, stayed away from the first minicamp last month in hopes the team would trade him, possibly for draft picks. However, on the second day of the NFL draft, Shanahan announced that “Haynesworth will not be traded.” Haynesworth will be required to attend the mandatory minicamp next month. One player who did return to the field was Rocky McIntosh. The linebacker skipped the first minicamp because he wants a long-term contract instead of the one-year tender he was offered as a restricted free agent. McIntosh has yet to sign the tender, so he signed an

injury protection agreement so that he can take part in the three days of minicamp practices. Friday also marked the practice debut of No. 4 overall draft pick Trent Williams and the rest of the draft picks. While voluntary for the veterans, the minicamp is mandatory for the rookies. Despite his newbie status, Williams lined up at left tackle with the starting offensive line. As he did with the first minicamp, Shanahan is keeping his team under wraps. Reporters are barred from the Friday and Sunday sessions and will be allowed to watch only on Saturday.

traordinary were some of the shots that he did, memorable for other reasons. Woods hit a 3-wood on the seventh hole Thursday that he popped up so badly it barely reached the fairway and went only 190 yards. On Friday, such a breathtaking moment came on the 14th hole with a 3-wood in hand. He started it out to the right — well right — and it kept right on going. The

ball left the tee at a 45-degree angle, beyond the fairway, beyond the gallery, beyond the rough, over some trees. It finally landed in the middle of a small pond on the 12th fairway. Woods’ reaction? “I couldn’t stop,” he said under his breath, dropping a few choice words while repeating the phrase. He felt something out of position in his swing

somewhere before impact. Trouble was, it was too late to do anything about it. Had he felt it sooner, Woods said he would have stopped in mid-swing and started over. Once he got past a certain point, the only question was whether it would be way right or way left. Either way, it was headed for the water. “I was in a bad spot,” Woods said.

Feds say April hiring was up, but so was jobless rate WASHINGTON (AP) – The economy got what it needed in April: A burst of hiring that added a net 290,000 jobs, the biggest monthly total in four years. The improving picture caused so many more people to pour into the labor force in search of employment that the jobless rate rose from 9.7 percent to 9.9 percent. The hiring last month of 66,000 temporary government workers to conduct the census added to overall job creation. But private employers – the backbone of the economy – contributed the most: A surprisingly



NY settles $600 million Countrywide suit ALBANY, N.Y. – New York pension fund officials say they’ve reached a proposed $600 million settlement of securities fraud allegations against mortgage lender Countrywide Financial Corp. The settlement is subject to approval by a federal judge and isn’t expected to be final until September. New York Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli says the deal covers claims that Countrywide made misstatements about its lending practices.

Consumer Reports lifts Lexus rating DETROIT – Consumer Reports magazine is lifting a “Don’t Buy” recommendation for a Lexus sport utility vehicle that failed an emergency handling test. The magazine said Friday that the 2010 Lexus GX 460 luxury SUV passed the test after a dealership updated software that runs its electronic stability control system. Toyota Motor Corp. recalled about 10,000 of the SUVs in the United States in April after the magazine told readers not to buy them.

Dominion picks potential nuclear reactor RICHMOND, Va. – Energy company Dominion Resources Inc. said Friday it has selected a nuclear reactor for a potential third unit at its North Anna Power Station in central Virginia. The Richmond company said it has selected Mitsubishi Heavy Industry’s Advanced Pressurized Water Reactor technology for the project following a competitive bidding process. CEO Thomas F. Farrell II said the reactor would produce a substantial amount of electricity with virtually no greenhouse gas emissions. ENTERPRISE NEWS SERVICE REPORTS


strong 231,000 jobs, the most since March 2006, the Labor Department said Friday. The new jobs, generated by sectors across the economy, are the first sign that the recovery is adding significant numbers of new jobs – even if not enough to absorb the influx of jobseekers. That’s why the unemployment rate rose. The encouraging message in Friday’s report, though, is that employers are finally hiring again. “Companies have a newfound confidence in the future of the economic recovery and on the part of their own business prospects,”

said Joel Naroff, president of Naroff Economic Advisors. “The broad-based job gains are an indication that businesses are feeling more comfortable about expanding their work forces,” he said. President Barack Obama called the addition of 290,000 jobs in April “very encouraging news.” But he said much remains to be done to get Americans back to work. “This week’s jobs numbers comes as a relief to Americans who found a job,” Obama said. “But it offers obviously little comfort to those who are still out of work.”

Europe tries to douse debt crisis BRUSSELS (AP) – Amid ruthless financial turmoil, German Chancellor Angela Merkel urged European leaders to sharpen the core rules underpinning the euro to avoid debt crises like the one which has pushed Greece to the brink of bankruptcy and threatened other fragile eurozone nations. “We must sharpen the edge” of the rules to keep wayward governments in line, Merkel said, adding the 16 eurozone leaders should also consider changes to the 1992 treaty that laid the groundwork for the shared currency. “Otherwise, it won’t work, in my opinion.” The euro has rules to stop governments from undermining it with reckless spending, limit-

ing deficits to 3 percent of gross domestic product. Those rules were shown to lack teeth when even big countries such as Germany and France broke them without serious consequences. Merkel spoke ahead of an evening summit of the euro countries. The summit, originally called to sign off on the bailout and draw lessons for the future, turned into one of crisis management. Markets have continued to sell off the euro and Greek bonds. Oficials said the bailout should keep the problem from spreading to other countries by giving Greece three years of support and preventing a default when it has to pay ¤8.5 billion in bonds coming due May 19.

NEW YORK (AP) – Goldman Sachs brought its campaign to improve its image directly to investors Friday as Chairman and CEO Lloyd Blankfein said the bank will do better at “listening to the concerns of our shareholders.” Blankfein also told the investment bank’s annual meeting that Goldman is creating a business standards committee to study its practices as it fights civ-

il fraud charges brought by the Securities and Exchange Commission. “We need a rigorous selfexamination,” Blankfein told investors at the meeting, which attracted about 300 people. “Our firm must review our core principles.” The committee, which will report to the Goldman board of directors, will review both services and products that Goldman offers, Blankfein said.

Cheaper gas may be just down the road NEW YORK (AP) – Pump prices that typically begin a sprint for their annual highs right about now, might be losing steam well ahead of the summer driving season. The average price nationally for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline

Friday was $2.92 a gallon, according to AAA, Wright Express and Oil Price Information Service. That’s down almost a penny from Thursday. A gallon still is running about 78 cents higher today than a year ago.

NEW YORK (AP) – Stocks had another volatile day Friday, swinging widely before closing sharply lower. The Dow Jones industrials closed with a loss of about 140 points, having been down almost 280 earlier. That followed a brief plunge of nearly 1,000 points on Thursday, the biggest one-day drop in the Dow’s history. The erratic trading Friday was no surprise – stocks often fluctuate sharply right after the market suffers a big slide. Traders were still anxious amid lingering questions aboutwhatcausedThursday’s sudden drop. Several possibilities were being investigated, but as of late Friday no clear explanation had emerged. The market looked past a surprisingly strong report on the U.S. jobs market and focused instead on the harrowing plunge the day before and the latest moves in Europe’s spreading debt crisis that had helped trigger Thursday’s big drop. Technology stocks were particularly hard hit following reports that Nokia Corp. was broadening its legal fight against rival cell phone maker Apple Inc. to include the iPad, Apple’s new hit product. Apple shares fell 4.2 percent in heavy trading. Friday’s trading left the Dow down 5.7 percent for the week and erased its gains for the year. The S&P fell about 6.4 percent, while the Nasdaq was off 7.9 percent for the week. The S&P and Nasdaq also went into the red for 2010.

Body of missing kayaker found LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – Rescuers have found the body of a kayaker in Kentucky who had been missing since Monday. Friday’s discovery marks the fifth death in Kentucky and the 31st in the South from last weekend’s flooding.

Hart County Coroner Jeff Roten says the body of 55-year-old Robert Atcher was found about six miles downriver from where Atcher started his kayaking trip on the flooded Green River. Authorities Atcher’s kayak hit a logjam and

the current pulled him under. Search teams are still looking for an 18-year-old high school student who went kayaking on Lake Cumberland on Wednesday. They located a body Friday, but have been unable to retrieve it.

As we celebrate Memorial Day, our readers remember friends and family members who bravely sacrificed their time, service and even their lives for our country and our freedom. With pride and gratitude, we honor our heroic soldiers and salute the memory of those who paid the ultimate sacrifice to protect and preserve our Freedoms.

A eight-foot high ring of flood-ravaged belongings encircles a townhouse development Friday in Bellevue, Tenn.

Volunteers help clean while Tennessee dries out FRANKLIN, Tenn. (AP) – Dumpsters dot the Cottonwood subdivision with ductwork, insulation, mattresses and kitchen sinks piled in front of houses. The sound of hammers ripping up sodden floors and fans set at high hum through the air. Yet the fetid smell filling the neighborhood hits the hardest. Nashville, where the Grand Ole Opry flooded along with parts of the downtown, has been the focus since weekend storms killed at least 31

people in three states, 20 of them in Tennessee. But the record-shattering torrential rains that pushed the Cumberland River out of its banks to flood the tourist spots also pushed the rivers and creeks throughout Middle and West Tennessee to levels not seen in decades, if ever. Adam Johnston has bags of lime stacked up to use to dull the smell once he cleans out the 4 inches of sewage and sludge under his house, where volunteers wore masks as they

worked to clean up the devastation left when the Harpeth River rushed out of its banks and through this neighborhood. “Whatever gets rid of the smell,” Johnston said. Transportation has also taken a hit. The main railroad line between Nashville and Memphis is out for at least four weeks because two bridges washed away. Gary Sease, a CSX Transportation spokesman, said officials should be able to reroute most shipments until repairs are made.

DRYING OUT: Tennessee cleans up after massive flooding. 6C

Suspicious package rattles New Yorkers


Former New York Giants linebacker and Pro Football Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor listens to proceedings during Taylor’s arraignment at Ramapo Town Court in Suffern, N.Y., Thursday.

Feds: Taylor admitted paying for sex NEW YORK (AP) – Disgraced gridiron great Lawrence Taylor admitted paying for sex at a suburban Holiday Inn where police say he raped a 16year-old runaway, federal prosecutors said Friday in a criminal complaint against the girl’s alleged pimp. The papers filed in federal court in Manhattan refer to Taylor only as “Client-1.” In the paperwork, authorities claim the Pro Football Hall of Famer told police following his arrest on Thursday that he had taken a car service from Newark International Airport to the hotel north of New York City to meet “Victim-1.” Taylor told investigators that after “engaging in sex acts” with the victim, he paid her $300 in cash, the complaint says. The man charged in the complaint, Rasheed Davis, had told the Giants legend that the girl was 19, the court papers say. Taylor, 51, was charged Thursday in Suffern, N.Y. with third-degree rape and patronizing a prostitute. His lawyer, Arthur Aidala, has denied the charges. Davis was to appear in federal court later Friday on a charge of sex trafficking of a minor.


A containment vessel is lowered into the Gulf of Mexico at the site of the Deepwater Horizon rig collapse, Thursday.

Box to contain oil leak touches down on Gulf floor ON THE GULF OF MEXICO (AP) – BP lowered a 100-ton concrete-and-steel vault onto a ruptured well in the Gulf of Mexico on Friday, an important step in a delicate and unprecedented attempt to stop most of the gushing crude fouling the sea. Underwater robots guided the 40-foot-tall box into place. Now that the contraption is on the seafloor, workers will need at least 12 hours to let it settle and make sure it’s stable before the robots can hook up a pipe and hose that will funnel the oil up to a tanker.

“It appears to be going exactly as we hoped,” BP spokesman Bill Salvin told The Associated Press on Friday afternoon, shortly after the four-story device hit the seafloor. “Still lots of challenges ahead, but this is very good progress.” By Sunday, the box the size of a house could be capturing up to 85 percent of the oil. So far about 3 million gallons have leaked in an environmental crisis that has been unfolding since a deepwater drilling platform exploded April 20, sending toxic oil toward

a shoreline of marshes, shipping channels, fishing grounds and beaches. Eleven workers were killed in the accident. The lowering of the containment device was a slow-moving drama playing out 50 miles from Louisiana’s coast, requiring great precision and attention to detail. It took about two weeks to build the 40-foot box, and the effort to lower it by crane and cable to the seafloor began late Thursday night. After it hit bottom Friday afternoon, the crane gradually eased off to allow it to settle.

Viewing held for slain Virginia lacrosse player TOWSON, Md. (AP) – Dozens of mourners gathered at a Maryland funeral home for the viewing of Yeardley Love, the University of Virginia lacrosse player who was found beaten to death earlier this week. The visitation, the first of two on Friday at a Towson funeral home, was restricted to friends and family. Her teammates were expected later in the day and a funeral is planned Saturday in Baltimore.

The 22-year-old was found slain Monday and George Huguely, a Virginia men’s lacrosse player, has been charged with murder. UVA president John Casteen is to meet Virginia’s governor next week about requiring police to report off-campus student arrests to their universities. He says the university wasn’t notified of Huguely’s 2008 arrest at another college for allegedly resisting arrest for public intoxication.

Jury awards $500M in hepatitis case


People head inside Ruck Funeral Home, gathering for the viewing of University of Virginia student Yeardley Love on Friday in Towson, Md. Around a half-dozen members of the Georgetown women’s lacrosse team, including one carrying a lacrosse stick, were among a steady stream of people entering the building.

E. coli outbreak may be from Arizona lettuce farm WASHINGTON (AP) – Lettuce grown in Yuma, Ariz., may be the source of a widespread E. coli outbreak in romaine lettuce that has sickened at least 19 people and prompted a recall in 23 states. Federal investigators are looking at a farm in Yuma as a possible source for the outbreak, according to the distributor who sold the lettuce. Freshway Foods of Sidney, Ohio, said Thursday it recalled lettuce sold in 23 states and the District of Columbia because of a possible link to an E. coli outbreak that has sickened at least 19 people – three with life-threatening illness.

Freshway Foods truck is photographed in Sidney, Ohio, Friday. Federal investigators are looking at a farm in Yuma, Ariz., as a possible source of a widespread E. coli outbreak in romaine lettuce. in Columbus and Daemen College in Amherst, N.Y., are among those who were affected by the outbreak, according to health departments in those states. The health officials said most of the victims were sickened in April and

have already recovered. Vice president Devon Beer said Freshway Foods worked with the Food and Drug Administration to trace the contaminated lettuce to a Yuma grower, whom he would not identify.

NEW YORK (AP) – Police cleared the streets around Times Square on Friday and called in the bomb squad to dismantle what turned out to be a cooler full of water bottles. Earlier in the day, police were called in to check a suspicious package that turned out to be someone’s lunch. Since a Shahzad PakistaniAmerican tried unsuccessfully to set off a car bomb in the heart of the city last weekend, falsealarm calls are up dramatically, nerves are jangled, and media and law enforcement are rushing to the scenes to make sure the reports aren’t something bigger. More than 600 calls came in since Saturday’s attempted car bombing of a busy street near Times Square – about 30 percent higher than normal, police said. “This is something that happens fairly regularly,” Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said Friday. “I think to a certain extent, people are becoming more suspicious, more vigilant. ... We understand that’s what happens, and we’re prepared to respond.” Bombing suspect Faisal Shahzad remained in custody and did not appear in court Friday.

The recall only applies to romaine lettuce with “best if used by” date before or on May 12, when Freshway Foods stopped buying its romaine from Yuma, Beer said. Officials in Arizona also confirmed the inves-

tigation. Laura Oxley, a spokeswoman for Arizona’s agriculture and health departments, said federal officials contacted them and told them they suspected the source of the E. coli outbreak was lettuce grown in the state.

LAS VEGAS (AP) – A jury in Las Vegas ordered two drug companies to pay a combined $500 million in punitive damages in the first of hundreds of civil cases stemming from a hepatitis C outbreak two years ago. The Clark County District Court jury on Friday ordered Teva Parenteral Medicines to pay $356 million to Henry Chanin and his wife, Lorraine. Baxter Healthcare Corp. was ordered to pay the couple $144 million. “We’re hoping that it sends a message to these drug companies that they need to come here to Las Vegas with the right people and sit down and get these cases resolved,” Chanin’s lawyer, Robert Eglet, told The Associated Press. “Take care of these people who have been infected.” Baxter spokeswoman Erin Gardiner said the Deerfield, Ill.-based company would appeal the decision. “This was a case of product misuse related to unsafe clinical practices as opposed to an issue with a widely used and clearly labeled product,” Gardiner said. “Jurors were not allowed to hear a number of compelling facts related to unsafe clinical practice at the root of the issue.” A spokeswoman for Teva did not immediately return messages seeking comment.

Chrysler convertible has usable seats for 4 ANN M. JOB THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


Chrysler’s Sebring convertible, with rear seats that can accommodate two adults and a generous trunk, languished in recent years as its manufacturer went bankrupt and was sold. But the Sebring is still around, with nicer front styling for 2010 and other minor revisions such as a new instrument cluster and anti-whiplash frontseat head restraints. In fact, the Sebring convertible and Sebring sedan posted impressive, triple-digit sales gains in the first four months of this year compared with the 2009 period. The Sebring was supposed to be phased out this year. But Chrysler – now owned by the federal government and Italian carmaker Fiat – is reportedly sprucing up the car for 2011. Starting manufacturer’s suggested retail price, including destination charge, is $28,590 for a 2010 Sebring soft-top model with 173 horsepower, four-cylinder engine and automatic transmission. The starting retail price for a 2010 Sebring convertible with power retractable hard top is $35,445.


The accommodations, particularly the leg room, are still the best attribute of the Sebring convertible. This includes 235-horsepower V-6 and automatic transmission. Note that it is unusual for a four-seat convertible to offer a choice of roofs. The competing, fourseat, 2010 Volkswagen Eos, which comes standard with power retractable hard top, has a starting retail price of $33,140 with 200-horsepower, turbocharged four cylinder and manual transmission.

A 2010 Eos with automatic has a starting retail price of $34,240. The 2011 Ford Mustang convertible, an early model introduction, starts at $27,995 with a soft top and a base engine – a V-6 – that offers 305 horsepower. The Sebring convertible gained fame years ago as America’s top-selling, open-air car. But as money for advertising and new-model development

waned in recent years, the car became better known for its popularity in rental car fleets. Rental customers can carry three passengers in the Sebring convertible, and the trunk – 13.1 cubic feet, when the roof is on the car – can handle several suitcases or four golf bags. When the top is down, trunk space measures 6.6 cubic feet. The accommodations

are still the best attribute of the Sebring convertible in 2010. The back seat has 33.5 inches of legroom, which was enough for me to sit back there without my knees being cramped. Headroom, of course is unlimited with the roof down and measures a full 37.2 inches with soft top and 36.6 inches with the hard top. By comparison, the VW Eos has 32.5 inches of

2010 Chrysler Sebring Convertible Limited BASE PRICE: $27,850 for LX; $29,210 for Touring; $32,710 for Limited AS TESTED: $37,335 TYPE: Front-engine, front-wheel drive, fourpassenger, small, hardtop convertible ENGINE: 3.5-liter, single overhead cam V-6 MILEAGE: 16 mpg (city), 27 mpg (highway) TOP SPEED: NA LENGTH: 193.8 inches.

rear-seat legroom and 35.8 inches of headroom in the back seat under the hard top. Some 20 inches shorter than the Sebring convertible, the Eos’ trunk space is 6.6 cubic feet, maximum. The Sebring offers more room than the Mustang, as well. Unfortunately, the Sebring doesn’t rate as highly in other features.

And when it comes down to it, a buyer would much rather hear that the home they’re going to see has been inspected and comes with a warranty, than to hear that it is being sold “as-is”, which is the case with many bank-owned properties. Although there’s no doubt that many buyers are looking for bargains and checking out foreclosures, not every buyer will be in a position to make the repairs necessary to bring a

For example, you probably won’t want to delay your purchase says. Gerri Detweiler, a personal finance if you’re buying in an area where prices expert and author, says that saving for have started rising. In that case, the savings you stockpile could be canceled a substantial down payment could be a good idea, assuming it doesn’t take you out by ascending property values.

too long to reach your goal. But she cautions that the hard part of a crash savings program is to cut expenses enough to gain momentum. “The good news is that across the country, savings rates are on the rise. But at the same time, overall living expenses are also rising, including costs for health care, education and food,” she says. Here are pointers for those convinced that saving before buying a home is a sound financial plan: • Make your savings goal tangible. Personal finance experts know people move more quickly toward a savings objective if they have a detailed feel for the outcome of their sacrifices. But how can you make your home-buying goal more concrete? Detweiler says one way is to visit a mortgage lender’s office to find out how expensive a property you can afford and to determine your down payment requirements. “There are far fewer no-money-down mortgages out there now than there used to be before the recession,” she says. Once you know your borrowing limits and down payment needs, Detweiler

recommends you begin a limited property search by stopping by a few open houses in the neighborhood where you want to live. But she cautions against serious house-hunting. “People who do that could be tempted to buy sooner than they planned because they’ve encountered a dream house,” she says. Another way to focus on your savings goal is to find pictures of the kind of home you aspire to buy. Then position these photos in prominent places, such as in easy view on your laptop or cell phone. • Review your automotive expenses. Meyer says that all too often people take their need for a late-model luxury car as a given. But to save for a home, especially a first home, they may need to downscale their expectations in this area and sell a vehicle and commute by rail or bus until reaching their savings goal. Alternatively, they might consider sharing rides with a colleague from work or a neighbor, he adds. • Save for a home by cutting back on insurance costs. Meyer says wannabe homebuyers should think through their spending when it comes to insurance coverage.

CBTR extends benefits of homebuyer tax credit SPECIAL TO THE ENTERPRISE

WINSTON-SALEM – Coldwell Banker Triad, Realtors announced the launch of its Buyer Bonus Sales Event, a promotion intended to build on the momentum of the federal homebuyer tax credit. In a recent survey of Coldwell Banker Real Estate professionals, nearly half indicated that they had worked with home buyers who would have missed out on the home buyer tax credit in November of last year had it not been extended. In addition, while 34 percent

cite the recent tax credit extension was the primary reason their customers were searching for a home, 28 percent said that they feel the limitations of that credit prohibited some buyers from taking advantage of the credit. That is why on May 14, 2010, following the expiration of this government initiative, Triad home sellers participating in the Coldwell Banker Buyer Bonus Sales Event will offer a credit of 3 percent (up to $8,000), when part of an accepted offer, of their home’s purchase price to buyers who sign a contract

before July 31, 2010. There is no deadline for a closing date. “We feel that this promotion is especially timely in the Triad,” said Beverly Godfrey, President/CEO of Coldwell Banker Triad, Realtors. “Since the credit expired, Coldwell Banker Triad, Realtors is encouraging buyers who haven’t found a home yet to continue looking, while bringing a new audience of home buyers who were unable to qualify for the tax credit into the market. In the Triad, we’re seeing signs of market improvement, such as increased appointments for

showings and a 27 percent increase in contracts written in the last 30 days. The Buyer Bonus Event will keep our market moving in the right direction.” “The Buyer Bonus Sales Event will allow participating Coldwell Banker home sellers in the Triad to essentially extend the benefits of the credit,” said Jim Gillespie, president and chief executive officer, Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC. “Without restrictions such as household income caps, the Coldwell Banker Buyer Bonus Sales Event allows

for greater participation for all homebuyers. And our sellers have a unique opportunity to allow their home to stand out from the competition in their marketplace.” Participating homes will typically be identified by Buyer Bonus Sales Event yard sign for riders and tagged as a Buyer Bonus home online at “” While searching for a home online, homebuyers can simply check the box labeled “Buyer Bonus Sales Event” to find participating properties nearby.
