ELECTION LAW: Bill prohibiting felon sheriff candidates still alive. 1B

ARCHDALE – Carl and Linda Grubb were all smiles as they walked into the new YMCA in Archdale that’s named after them and scheduled to be open later this month. “This is unreal,” Linda Grubb said. “I think it’s simply magnificent,” her husband added. “This is something for Archdale.” The Grubbs, longtime Archdale-Trinity residents, made a significant contribution about two years ago to make a YMCA for the Archdale-Trinity area a reality. The Carl and Linda Grubb Family YMCA, located on N.C. 62 near the ArchdaleTrinity border, is scheduled to open at 9 a.m. May 28.

“I think it’s going to be something that’s just wonderful for the community,” Carl Pollock Grubb said. “I think they will be in awe. It’s really unbelievable. This little Archdale-Trinity, we didn’t have anything like this.” David Pollock, branch director of the Carl and Linda Grubb Family YMCA, said staff members are working this week to get equipment and office furniture into the 32,000-square-foot facility. Without having a facility to operate the YMCA’s programs for the last six years, Pollock described moving into the location as a “long time coming.”

ELECTIONS

High Point and Archdale are the only cities among more than 500 municipalities in North Carolina that hold local elections in even-numbered years instead of odd-numbered years. The two cities shifted their nonpartisan municipal elections last decade. The candidate filing period for the High Point and Archdale elections is July 2-16.

Council assured of 2 new members BY PAUL B. JOHNSON ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – Voters won’t go to the polls for six months to pick members of the High Point City Council, but they already are assured of two new members representing High Point after the fall general election. Councilmen Bill Bencini and John Faircloth will depart the city’s governing body for new political roles. Bencini won the Republican District 2 Guilford County Board of Commissioners

primary earlier this month, while Faircloth triumphed in the Republican 61st State House District primary. Both men face no opponent in the Nov. 2 general election, virtually assuring their assumption to their new posts. That means the ninemember council, which includes the mayor, will have at least two freshman members when the new council takes the oath of office Dec. 6. Bencini represents Ward 4, while Faircloth serves in Ward 6. Each can continue

to serve through this year until new council members take office in early December. Candidate filing for this year’s High Point municipal election takes place July 2-16. The races are nonpartisan, meaning the party affiliation of the candidate doesn’t appear on the ballot. Bencini, who’s served on the council since 1999, said he knows of a pair of Ward 4 residents who might want to run for the council seat. But Bencini said Tuesday

that nothing’s definitive on any candidate filing. Faircloth, who’s served on the council since 2003, said he’s had inquiries from three possible Ward 6 candidates, though he declined to provide names because he pledged confidentiality to the individuals. The council is made up of six members elected through wards and two members picked at-large by all city voters. The mayor also is elected citywide. pjohnson@hpe.com | 888-3528

Clinic deal with hospital groups gets tentative approval BY DAVID NIVENS ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

NETWORK

GUILFORD COUNTY – County officials gave preliminary approval Tuesday to a $2 million clinic deal with two hospital groups. Commissioner Skip Alston told the Guilford County Board of Commissioners that the Moses Cone and High Point Regional health systems agreed during contract negotiations to continue operating Guilford Adult Health and Guilford Child Health for $2 million over the next nine months with an additional $300,000 for social workers. Meanwhile, the partners will seek federally qualified health center status in hopes of qualifying for clinic grants. The county contributes about $1.6 million for Adult Health each year and about $1.8 million for Child Health. The two programs treat nearly 52,000 residents. The qualified health centers nationwide specialize in treating low-income residents and cannot turn away patients for any reason. Recently passed legislation is expected to pump as

Nationwide: The Federally Qualified Health Center program is a national network of more than 1,100 community, migrant, homeless and public housing health centers. The organizations provide health care at more than 7,500 clinic sites across the country, ranging from large medical facilities to mobile vans. Patients: In 2008, the centers served more than 17 million people. Fees are based on income, allowing those with high-premium health insurance to seek primary and preventive care.

much as $11 billion into community health centers during the next five years. “In six months, we’ll talk about where we are and we’ll make sure we do what we have to do,” Alston said during a budget workshop. “We want to take care of the citizens of the county.”

FUGITIVE WATCH

----

While attending a Guilford County Board of Health meeting on Monday, Alston, chairman of the Board of Commissioners and a health board member, said the partners had reached a compromise after months of negotiations to operate clinics in Greensboro and High Point. Intense negotiations began after County Manager Brenda Jones-Fox proposed eliminating $1.6 million for Guilford Adult Health in her $568.9 million 2011 budget plan. During negotiations, county officials considered hiring another provider or replacing some services, if no contract was approved, according to Health Director Merle Green. The proposed contract change for Guilford Adult Health is part of a proposed reorganization of the health department. The 2011 budget proposal also cuts $2.1 million from the clinical health section that serves the needy and $1.4 million from health preparedness, the section that deals with public health emergencies, such as influenza outbreaks, and disasters. The agency will rely instead on federal grants.

rier as she now is fluent in English and Spanish. Hunter has overcome the loss of her mother to cancer as well as battling systemic lupus erythematosus, which is an autoimmune disorder known for damaging major organs. “When I traveled to America from El Salvador almost four years ago only knowing how to speak Spanish, this was just the beginning of my struggles that I would have to face in my new life,” Alvarado said. “I came to America crossing three frontiers that were Guatemala, Mexico and finally the United States. Immigrating to the United States was a horrible experience for me when I was only 14 about to turn 15 years old. My experience crossing three borders are unforgettable memories that have marked my life.” Reflecting on her journey to the United States, Alvarado, who was accompanied by her sister, remembers suffering from hunger and thirst. She describes the trip as being like a “nightmare” that lasted for 20 days, but seemed like 20 years.

“I remember the day when I crossed the Rio Grande,” she said. “I cried so badly and I thanked God for allowing me and my sister get to America safe.” Once in America, she said she promised herself that she would study hard and have a career one day. As a Thomasville High student, she said one of her biggest obstacles was learning how to speak English. By her junior year, she started making A’s and B’s and became fluent in English. “This has been a blessed year for myself,” said Alvarado, who has been awarded a $100,000 scholarship to attend Lenior-Rhyne University. “I know my GPA might not be a 4.0 something, but I am proud of what I have achieved. Because of not knowing English your first three years and then get it up so quickly, it’s hard, but I feel proud of myself. Hunter was diagnosed with lupus when she was in eighth grade, making her homebound the last semester before entering ninth grade at Thomasville High. Once in high

In 2007, she was able to get out of the wheelchair and walk. But after battling her way out of one obstacle, her mother lost her bout with cancer. “I still haven’t overcome losing my mom and with the lupus, it just keeps getting harder,” she said. “What motivated me to be more serious about my illness and really take it into consideration that I have to do this and I want to beat this was my mom passing because the only thing she wanted for her kids was to see all of her kids graduate.” After losing her mother, she says she also has been helping raise her two sib-

lings. She’s planning on attending a college nearby so she can be near her younger brother and sister. Despite fighting lupus and losing her mother, Hunter has excelled in the classroom. She has been accepted to five colleges – Fayetteville State University, Livingstone College, University of North Carolina at Greensboro, North Carolina Central University and Forsyth Technical Community College. For Hunter, graduation will have a special meaning. “It will mean that I am officially my mom because she graduated from high school,” she said.

UN powers back new sanctions against Iran UNITED NATIONS – The United States introduced a resolution backed by all veto-wielding members of the U.N. Security Council Tuesday that would impose new sanctions against Iran’s powerful Revolutionary Guard and seek to curtail military, financial and shipping activities linked to its suspect nuclear program. U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice said the proposal would give “greater teeth� to existing sanctions and add “strong� new measures to intensify pressure on Iran.

Opinion Page Editor: Vince Wheeler vwheeler@hpe.com (336) 888-3517

Jefferson’s ‘Great Wall’ statement is misused I’m concerned how far back our nation has regressed since its founding. Thomas Jefferson was our third president and the primary author of the Declaration of Independence. At this time, there was talk of having a “state church.” Roger Williams, a Baptist preacher in New England concerned about the prospect of having a state church, wrote Jefferson his concerns. Being Baptist, he wasn’t in favor of that situation. Jefferson responded with the idea of the “Great Wall of Separation.” In effect, he was saying “No” to state church, which was not intended as an affront to Christianity. As we see from a clarification of his beliefs, “My views are the result of a life of inquiry and reflections – very different from the anti-Christian system imputed to me by those who know nothing of my opinions. To the corruptions of Christianity, I am indeed opposed, but not to the genuine precepts of Jesus Himself. I am a Christian in the only sense He wished anyone to be.” We can see in those early days of our religious freedom we were under attack by anti-God people who did not want our nation to be a Christian nation. The so-called “Great Wall” has been greatly misused by our enemies today, who would like to see all Christians put under restrictions by the government and have made it a law to stop us from using “Jesus’ name” in our public prayers. As the Supreme Court stated so clearly in 1892, “Our laws and our institutions must necessarily be based upon the teaching of the Redeemer of mankind. It is impossible that it should be otherwise, and to this sense and to the extent, our civilization and our institutions are emphatically Christian.” Is there any wonder that we

When politicians decide who has ‘enough money’ ...

Cut budget expenses, not services O

H

igh Point City Manager Strib Boynton appeared to be pretty much on the right philosophical track Monday in proposing a general operating budget for the 2010-11 fiscal year. He’s proposing no property tax rate increase, and at $308 million, the proposed budget is nearly 4 percent less than the current year’s amount for operations. Boynton said the city’s major revenue sources continue to decrease because of the effects of the tough economy. So among budget cuts he proposes are eliminating 51 full and part-time positions that are vacant and freezing city workers’ salaries for a second year. Those are moves private sector businesses make in dealing with revenue declines, so there’s nothing wrong with the city making them, too. But Boynton and City Council must be careful as they review the budget. They must make cuts that result in reductions of expenses. But they must be selective with cuts so as not to significantly reduce services – or give the impression of reduced services – to the public at a time when they really are questioning the return on their tax dollars paid. For instance, would closing the city library on Mondays be viewed as a drastic reduction in services? If savings must be gained in the library budget, are there other ways? Could hours of operation a few days a week be shortened, instead, to effect the same budget reductions? Dropping Mondays would be almost a 15 percent cut in service.

ne of the many shallow statements that sound good – if you don’t stop and think about it – is that “at some point, you have made enough money.” The key word in this statement, made by President Barack Obama recently, is “you.” There is nothing wrong with my deciding how much money is enough for me or your deciding how much money is enough for you, but when politicians think that they should be deciding how much money is enough for other people, that is starting down a very slippery slope. Politicians with the power to determine each citizen’s income are no longer public servants. They are public masters. Are we really so eaten up with envy, or so mesmerized by rhetoric, that we are willing to sacrifice our own freedom by giving politicians the power to decide how much money anybody can make or keep? Of course, that will start only with “the rich,” but surely history tells us that it will not end there. The French Revolution began arbitrary executions among the hereditary aristocracy, but ended up arbitrarily executing all sorts of other people, including eventually even leaders of the Revolution itself. Very similar patterns appeared in the Bolshevik Revolution, in the rise of the Nazis and in numerous other times and places, where expanded and arbitrary powers were put into the hands of politicians – and were used against the population as a whole. Once you buy the argument that some segment of the citizenry should lose their rights, just because they are envied or resented, you are putting your own rights in jeopardy – quite aside from undermining any moral basis for respecting anybody’s rights. You are opening the floodgates to arbitrary power. The moral bankruptcy of the notion that third parties can decide when somebody else has “enough” money is matched by its economic illiteracy. The rest of the country is not poorer by the amount of Bill Gates’ fortune today and was not poorer by the amount of John D. Rockefeller’s fortune a century ago. Both men were selling a product that others were also selling, but more people chose to buy theirs. The fortunes that the sellers amassed were not a deduction from the buyers’ wealth.

Buyers and sellers both gained from these transactions or the transactions wouldn’t have continued. Ida Tarbell’s famous muckraking book, “History of the Standard Oil Company,” said that Rockefeller “should have been OPINION satisfied” with the money he had acquired by 1870, implying Thomas greed in his continued efforts to Sowell increase the size and profitability ■■■ of Standard Oil. But would the public have been better off or worse off if Rockefeller had retired in 1870? One of the crucial facts left out of Ida Tarbell’s book was that Rockefeller’s improvements in the oil industry brought down the price of oil to a fraction of what it had been before. As just one example, oil was first shipped in barrels, which is why we still measure oil in terms of the number of barrels today, even though oil is seldom – if ever – actually shipped in barrels any more. John D. Rockefeller shipped his oil in railroad tank cars, reducing transportation costs, among other costs that he found ways of reducing. Would the public have been better off if older and more costly methods of producing, processing and shipping oil had continued to be used, leading to prices far higher than necessary? Apparently Rockefeller himself decided at some point that he had enough money, and then donated enough of it to create a worldclass university from day one – the University of Chicago – as well as donating to innumerable other philanthropic projects. But that is wholly different from having politicians make such decisions for other people. Politicians who take on that role stifle economic progress and drain away other people’s money, in order to hand out goodies that will help get themselves re-elected. Some people call that “social justice,” even when it is antisocial politics.

A kinder world is possible if we’ll just try to seek it

THREE VIEWS

---

A

s hard as we try to believe the saying “sticks and stones may break my bones but words shall never hurt me,” we know that cruel words can hurt just as much or even more than physical pain. A hurtful remark can take your breath away just as easily as a swift punch to the stomach, so why is it that only physical assaults are taken seriously until someone dies? A heartbreaking number of people, (mostly teenagers) are starting to commit suicide because of the trauma they are forced to endure daily, and no one did anything until they killed themselves, and by that time it’s too late. A few days ago, a group came to my school. When I trudged into the packed auditorium, I assumed this would be just another boring assembly. Instead, I found myself instantly captivated by a story involving the first person murdered at Columbine High School in 1999. Her name was Rachel Scott and she was a person to be admired. The speaker told about her mission, known as Rachel’s Challenge, to bring more kindness into the world and her ideas on how to start a “chain reaction.” I could never capture the magnificence of the life-changing views of Rachel Scott, so I will not try to relay all of them now. But I will say that if we all made kindness a priority like she did, there would be far fewer people taking their own lives in this world. If one person, just one person, makes an effort to reach out to someone, then that could truly be the difference between life and death. Actions as simple as smiling and

throwing out a kind word can have a huge effect on the lives of people around us. I can’t even imagine the level of desperation and pain a person would have to drop to before actually taking their own life, but I do know that TEEN VIEW having a friend or even just having someone be nice to Hailey them can keep a hopeless soul Hendrix from ending their life prema■■■ turely. I know this because many people talked about how Rachel Scott, herself, and the effect Rachel’s Challenge had on their lives and had kept them from committing suicide. Since I know that everyone will not take part in Rachel’s Challenge, I know that bullying will not cease to exist. I know that I haven’t read about the last student driven to the lowest of the low by their classmates; but I do know that if we all tried hard enough to make kindness a priority in our lives, then we could really do what Rachel wanted. We could ignite a chain reaction. For this reason, I accept Rachel’s Challenge and will attempt to change my admittedly snarky ways. I want to be part of the solution and not part of the problem. I want the world around me to be a better place, filled with less hate and less terminally depressed children. I want to be part of the change.

Paul wins GOP nod in Kentucky WASHINGTON (AP) – Political novice Rand Paul rode support from tea party activists to a rout in Kentucky’s Republican Senate primary Tuesday night, jolting the GOP establishment and providing fresh evidence of voter discontent in a turbulent midterm election season. Paul had 59 percent of the vote with returns counted from slightly more than half of the precincts, compared to 36 percent for Secretary of State Trey Grayson, who had been recruited to the race by the state’s dominant Republican, U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. In a Democratic primary that commanded far less national attention, Attorney General Jack Conway led Lt. Gov. Daniel Mongiardo, 48 percent to 40 percent. On the busiest primary night of the year so far, Democratic Sens. Arlen

Congress: US repeated 9/11 failures in holiday plot WASHINGTON (AP) – Despite a top-to-bottom overhaul of the intelligence community after the 2001 terrorist attacks, the nation’s security system showed some of the same failures when it allowed a would-be bomber to slip aboard an airliner, congressional investigators say.

The Senate Intelligence Committee report at times contradicted the Obama administration’s assertion that the nearly catastrophic Christmas Day bombing attempt was unlike 9/11 because it represented a failure to understand intelligence, not a failure to collect and understand it.

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Rand Paul votes in Bowling Green, Ky., Tuesday. Specter in Pennsylvania and Blanche Lincoln in Arkansas struggled uncertainly for nomination to new terms. In a fourth race with national implications, Republican Tim Burns and Democrat Mark Critz vied to fill out the final few months in the term of the late Rep. John Murtha in Pennsylvania. Each political party invested

nearly $1 million in that contest and said the race to succeed the longtime Democratic lawmaker was something of a bellwether for the fall. In Oregon, Democratic Sen. Ron Wyden faced little opposition for nomination to a third full term. Dan Onorato won the Democratic nomination and Tom Corbett won the Republican nomination for

Pennsylvania governor. In Kentucky, Grayson had the support of McConnell as well as other establishment figures. But Paul countered with endorsements â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and the political energy that flowed along with them â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from tea party activists, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and Sen. Jim DeMint of South Carolina.

Second time around Bingham renews bid to make felons ineligible to run for sheriff ENTERPRISE, WIRE SERVICE REPORT

TRIAD – State Sen. Stan Bingham, R-Davidson, has introduced a bill, which failed to pass in an earlier N.C. General Assembly session, to let voters decide in November whether to allow convicted felons to run for sheriff in North Carolina. The five-term senator introduced Senate Bill 1178

Monday for consideration during the 2010 legislative session, which began last week in Raleigh. State law allows felons to run for sheriff once their citizenship rights are restored. Four felons – including former Davidson County Sheriff Gerald Hege – made unsuccessful bids for the office in the primary earlier this month. Bingham introduced a bill last year to amend the

state Constitution and prohibit felons from running, but the bill didn’t pass during the 2009 session. If Senate Bill 1178 passes during this year’s session, it would be put on the ballot in the Nov. 2 general election. Voters would have to approve the referendum issue for the state Constitution to be changed. “It’s a rare occasion to change the Constitution, but this is one case where it needs to be done,” Bingham said. Hege – who pleaded guilty to two felony counts of obstruction of justice in

2004 – lost the Republican primary in a landslide to Sheriff Gerald Grice. Hege completed his probation in 2007 and has had his citizenship restored. This year was the first year he was eligible to run again for office. Three other convicted felons – including Willie Tharpe of Wilkes County – ran for sheriff in North Carolina this month, and all of them lost. The fact that so many ran for office is likely to mean more support for the bill this year, said Eddie Caldwell, the executive vice president and general

----

counsel for the N.C. Sheriffs’ Association, which supports the bill. “I’ve not seen any opposition to it,” Caldwell said. “Convicted felons tend not to be a very organized group.” Caldwell said last year many legislators saw the bill as being somewhat hypothetical, but that changed this year when so many convicted felons decided to run. In addition to Tharpe and Hege, the other felons who ran were Robert E. “Nub” Taylor in Avery County and former Sheriff Stanley James in Washington County.

BY DARRICK IGNASIAK ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

TRINITY – While neighboring counties and cities aren’t proposing salary increases for employees, the city of Trinity’s 2010-11 proposed fiscal-year budget consists of cost-of-living adjustments, Christmas bonuses and performance-based salary increases. City Manager Ann Bailie presented the Trinity City Council with its proposed $4.4 million budget Tuesday night. According to the proposed budget, Trinity employees would get a 2 percent cost-of-living adjustment (COLA), 2 percent Christmas bonuses and performance-based salary increases totaling $3,235. Bailie said the city must provide competitive salaries and benefits to attract and retain a competent work force. “Across the board, Trinity salaries are 21 percent below the average of salaries for similar positions in municipalities of similar populations, according to the annual salary survey published by the North Carolina League of Municipalities,” Bailie said. “Individually, Trinity salaries range from 10 percent to 35 percent below average. “It is also significant to note that Trinity is one of only a handful of cities and counties in North Carolina that does not contribute to employees’ 401K plans in addition to contributing to the Local Government Employees’ retirement system.” According to her budget letter, the city traditionally budgets for COLA at the same level as is granted to Social Security recipients for the previous year. She said the COLA for Social Security recipients in October 2008 was set at 5.8 percent for 2009. “Under ordinary circumstances, the COLA for city staff would have been set at 5.5 percent effective July 1, 2009,” Bailie said. “However during that time, the economy nose-dived. As a result, the COLA for employees was set at 2 percent. In October 2009, the 2010 COLA for social security recipients was set at zero percent. Included in this budget is a COLA in the amount of 2 percent, leaving 1.8 percent of the original 5.8 percent for future use.” Bailie said Christmas bonuses are something “the council has done from the beginning.” The city of Trinity has seven employees. Those positions include a city manager, finance officer/city clerk, assistant city clerk, office assistant, planning/zoning/code enforcement administrator, planning/zoning/code enforcement assistant and a stormwater administrator. Bailie said those titles are misleading because “everyone performs duties far beyond what would generally be expected within a given position.” dignasiak@hpe.com | 888-3657

In this March 21, 1952, photo Col. Walker Mahurin of Fort Wayne, Ind., looks out from the cockpit of a F-86 Sabrejet at an airbase in Korea.

Celebrated World War II flying ace dies at 91 NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Walker â&#x20AC;&#x153;Budâ&#x20AC;? Mahurin, a fighter pilot who shot down two dozen planes in two wars and was regarded as one of Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top aces ever, has died, his wife said Sunday. He was 91. Joan Mahurin said Bud Mahurin died of natural causes at his home in Newport Beach on Tuesday. She said her husband kept flying small planes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and kept receiving fan mail â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for most of his life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He would get letters from teenagers to old war veterans,â&#x20AC;? Joan Mahurin said. Doug Lantry, a historian at the National Museum of the United States Air Force in Ohio, said Mahurinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name is familiar to all in the Air Force. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bud Mahurin was the only Air Force pilot to shoot down enemy aircraft in the European theater of operations and the Pacific and in Korea,â&#x20AC;? Lantry told

the Los Angeles Times. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was known as a very courageous, skilled and tenacious fighter pilot.â&#x20AC;? Mahurin was shot down himself, twice during World War II and once in the Korean War, which led to his capture and 16 traumatic months in a prison camp. A native of Benton Harbor, Mich., Mahurin studied engineering at Purdue University then joined the Army Air Forces in September 1941 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; three months before Pearl Harbor. He went by the call sign â&#x20AC;&#x153;Honest John,â&#x20AC;? a title heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d later adopt for his memoirs. During the war he was assigned to a fighter group in England, where the first plane he took down was his own. Mahurin told the Orange County Register in 2007 that during a training run he flew too close to one of the B-24 bombers he was assigned to protect, hit its propellor and had to bail out.

Legendary jazz pianist Hank Jones dies MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

DETROIT â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Pianist Hank Jones, one of the greatest musicians produced by metro Detroit and the last surviving brother of a trio of siblings who became jazz royalty, died Sunday in New York. He was 91. Jones, who played with everyone from Charlie Parker, Miles Davis and Ella Fitzgerald to contemporary figures like Joe Lovano and Tony Williams, was revered for his silken touch, melodic grace, relaxed elan, stylistic versatility and remarkable longevity.

Two charged in sexual assault DAVIDSON COUNTY – Two men face kidnapping and sexual assault charges after an incident investigated by Davidson County sheriff’s deputies last week. Officers responded to 1012 National Highway on Friday in reference to a possible assault and robbery. Deputies spoke with the alleged victim in the case, who reported that she knew both suspects and had invited them to her residence to visit. Once they arrived, both suspects “assaulted the victim by

touching her in an inappropriate manner,” according to the sheriff’s office. When she tried to flee, one suspect pulled out a gun and pointed it at her, deputies said. The two allegedly sexually assaulted her again and left the scene, taking a camera and $15 cash. They were later arrested without incident. Sheriff’s officials identified Ronnie Jerrod Gladney Jr., 23, and Clarence Jamal Gordon, 16, both of Culbreth Avenue, Thomasville, as suspects in the case. The sheriff’s office reported that a Noahtown Road address was the location of the incident.

Gladney was charged with firstdegree kidnapping, sexual servitude involving a child victim, sexual battery and assault by pointing a gun, deputies said. Gordon was charged with firstdegree kidnapping, sexual servitude involving a child victim, sexual battery and larceny, authorities said. Both suspects were booked into the Davidson County Jail under $150,000 bonds. They both have appearances scheduled for July 6 in Davidson County District Court.

NC Senate backs governor with personal care cuts RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – Senate budget writers agreed Tuesday to implode the programs that give at-home Medicaid patients help with their cooking and bathing, arguing providers aren’t serious about eliminating fraud in an industry that employs tens of thousands of people. The Senate Appropriations Committee approved a nearly $19 billion spending plan that backs Gov. Beverly Perdue’s proposal to eliminate two pro-

grams that serve 38,000 residents. They would be replaced with two programs that would serve only a small fraction of those patients – providers estimate 2,000, although the top state health official says it would be much higher. The full committee spent about two hours reviewing the bill and recommended it after only two amendments were considered. The budget was scheduled for debate Wednesday afternoon

by the full Senate before the first of two required votes. The plan also would seek another $60 million in state spending reductions on in-home personal care services. It is the latest skirmish in a fight over the services between health regulators and lawmakers on one side and providers and their patients on the other. Patients are worried they’ll be forced to enter a nursing home if they lose their assistance.

Political party’s effort to make ballot falls short RALEIGH (AP) – A unionbacked effort to create a new political party in North Carolina has fizzled because organizers didn’t have the 85,000 signatures to qualify. North Carolina First movement spokesman Greg Rideout said on Tuesday the group has

decided instead to collect a smaller number of signatures to put an independent candidate on the November ballot to challenge Rep. Larry Kissell. The group needed the signatures by June 1 to be a certified party and put a slate of candidates on the ballot, but

North Carolina First had to turn in petitions to county elections offices by Monday. The group backed by the Service Employees International Union and a North Carolina local wanted to challenge Kissell and two other Democrats who voted against the final health care bill.

Affair with stripper exposed by paper trail

D

ear Abby: My husband had an affair with a stripper. I found out about it because he bought her some jewelry and was stupid enough to have the bill sent to our home. We have been married more than 20 years and I love him, but this haunts me every day. I am heartbroken, but I’m trying to make our marriage work. He never admitted to any of it and says nothing happened between them. I don’t know whether to keep on trying or leave him and hope to get on with my life. What’s your advice? – Wounded Heart in Oklahoma Dear Wounded Heart: You have my sympathy, but one person can’t save a marriage alone. It takes effort on the part of both husband and wife, plus honest communication and often professional counseling to heal a relationship when there has been infidelity. Your husband may say “nothing” happened with the stripper, but the only man I can think of who bought jewelry for a woman he wasn’t related to or romantically involved with was Michael Jackson when he gave some to Elizabeth Taylor. Even though you love your husband, it’s time to start taking care of yourself. And the place to start is by insisting on professional counseling.

If he won’t go, go without him. Dear Abby: My husband and I have a ADVICE 24-year-old developDear mentally Abby disabled ■■■ son who lives with us. Three months ago, he met a nice girl at the mental health program he attends. They hold hands, go to the movies and occasionally smooch. Recently, “Jasper” had a mark on his neck. We were over at a friend’s house for dinner when my best friend noticed the mark. She then proceeded to tell me I should consider getting Jasper “fixed.” At first, I wasn’t sure I’d heard her correctly, so I asked her to repeat it. I am shocked that she thinks I should have my son sterilized. Jasper is diagnosed with ADD and Asperger’s syndrome. According to his mental health counselor, he could someday be married, have children and lead a productive, independent life. It just may take him longer to get to that point in comparison with his peers. How should I respond to my friend about her suggestion? When she made it, I didn’t know

what to say. – Speechless in New Hampshire Dear Speechless: If you still want to maintain the friendship with the woman, tell her what your son’s mental health counselor said about his prospects for the future. But first, if you haven’t already, make sure Jasper clearly understands everything he needs to know to protect himself and his nice girlfriend from premature parenthood. Dear Abby: Please answer a question for me. Why do we fall in love with people who we absolutely, positively cannot have? – Heartbroken in Indianapolis Dear Heartbroken: You have asked a question for which there is more than one answer. Some people do it because they don’t recognize the warning signs quickly enough to back off before becoming enmeshed. Others can’t resist a challenge. And still others do it because – believe it or not – it’s less threatening than falling in love with someone we absolutely, positively CAN have.

haron McDonough Ward remembers the last time her father was in their house. She and her sister lay in bed, wishing he would go away. Once again, he was drunk and angry. Once again, they heard him hit their mother. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I remember seeing my mom in the morning with a bruised and cut lip. It made me feel helpless,â&#x20AC;? Ward said. Years later, when Ward was 22, she found herABOVE self staring AND silently into BEYOND the mirror. Three Patty Jo thousand Sawvel miles away â&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  from home, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d tried for six years to make a life with a man who turned out to be just like her father â&#x20AC;&#x201C; angry, abusive and unfaithful. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I looked at my bruises, I saw my motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face looking back at me. I asked myself, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;What am I doing here?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want my kids to go through what I went through,â&#x20AC;? Ward said. So she called home, and thankfully her family sent plane tickets. She began studying the Bible and asked God to guide her life. At 27, she married Rick Ward. He was only 19 but mature and God-fearing. An exact opposite of her former man, Rick bought Sharon a home, treated her and her four children with kindness and strived to be a model husband. Oddly, Sharon now found herself to be the angry aggressor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been hurt so badly, and then I was on my own for five years. So I had an attitude that no one was ever going to tell me what to do or hurt me again,â&#x20AC;? she said. Thankfully, Rick was in this marriage for the long haul. When Sharon was angry, he assured her that they would talk over the problem when she calmed down. When they talked, he always used the Bible. In particular, he would turn to Ephesians 5:28-33 and ask her, â&#x20AC;&#x153;What do you think I can do differently so that you can have deep respect for me? And, what do you think you can do differently?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The first five years were really rough because the anger from my childhood kept seeping out. I acted out, and Rick used to call me his â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;little teenager.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; But eventually, I stopped fighting, and we solved our problems,â&#x20AC;? Sharon said. In time, Rick brought out the best in her. She became positive instead of negative, flexible instead of rigid, trusting instead of jealous and God-centered instead of self-centered. Then, after 32 years of marriage, Rick died unexpectedly in 2006. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was fortunate to have experienced true love, and it was Rickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s love that gave me the strength to survive his loss. Now, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s voice that I hear that reminds me of who I am and what I can do,â&#x20AC;? Ward said.

Readers provide remedies

T

o Readers: A recent discussion of nighttime leg cramps brought an avalanche of readers’ remedies, as it always does. I can’t submit all for publication, but I’ll try to include more throughout the year in future columns. I also cannot vouch for their effectiveness. I am sure they aren’t harmful. Try them if you wish.

BLONDIE

A.S. says the use of an electric blanket stopped her cramps. Many readers suggest a teaspoon of apple-cider vinegar in the morning and again before going to bed. (It might wreak havoc on some people’s stomachs.) M.K. advises coenzyme Q-10 (found in drugstores and health-food stores). L.A. suggests putting on pure-wool socks before going to bed. W.Z. obtains total relief by abstaining from coffee and other caffeine-containing foods and drinks from noon on. Tums at bedtime works for M.B. and her husband. Tonic water is advised by a large number of readers. (Tonic water does contain quinine, which was a popular prevention until its over-the-counter sale was prohibited.) J.M. claims that pickle juice works. (Again, a word of caution to those with delicate stomachs.) N.H. says folic acid, a B vitamin, solved her cramping. Many suggest the very popular practice of putting a bar of soap between the sheets to eliminate nocturnal cramps. I have been aware of this

remedy for many years, but skepticism keeps me from suggesting it in spite of HEALTH widespread testimoniDr. Paul als for its Donohue efficacy. ■■■ Details vary. Some say any soap will do, wrapped or unwrapped. Others say laundry soap and not “wimpy, cosmetic soap” is the kind that works best. Where the soap is placed is another moot point. The most popular location is the foot of the bed. I am still a skeptic. Pinching the skin between the upper lip and the nose is a suggested way of promptly ending a cramp. I believe this does work. It works for me, anyway. Dear Dr. Donohue: When I read the letter of the 25-year-old man with undiagnosed chest pain, I thought of my brother, who died of arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia. He had the same symptoms and was in his mid-30s. He died suddenly of this. It took the medical examiner four months to determine the cause of death. The letter writer should be aware of this. – P.G. I’ll bet not more than five readers have ever heard of ARVD, arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia. It’s being recognized with greater frequency. It’s the cause

of 10 percent of sudden deaths in those younger than 65. It’s a genetic disorder in which scarlike tissue and fat replace heart muscle in the right ventricle, the heart chamber that pumps blood to the lungs. It’s a stealthy illness with few symptoms. Nondescript chest pain, palpitations and fainting spells are warnings of it. Often, sudden death is the fate of undiagnosed cases. An EKG shows suggestive changes, and an echocardiogram (a soundwave picture of the heart) or an MRI scan provides substantial information. You’re right. The young letter writer ought to have his doctor consider this diagnosis. As it becomes better known, more people will be identified before the tragedy of an unexpected death occurs. Dear Dr. Donohue: Do arthritis and AIDS have the same symptoms? Is AIDS some kind of cancer? – Anon. AIDS is a viral infection with HIV, the human immunodeficiency virus. It is not a cancer, but the disruption of the immune system makes some patients disposed to develop some cancers. Arthritis is an illness involving joints. There are many kinds of arthritis – rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and gout are a few examples. A few AIDS patients develop joint pains, but the majority do not. Arthritis and AIDS are two quite different illnesses.

Jeremiah Wright, Barack Obama’s former pastor, said in a letter obtained by The Associated Press he is “toxic” to the Obama administration and that the president “threw me under the bus.” Wright told a group raising money for African relief that his pleas to release frozen funds for use in earthquake-ravaged Haiti would likely be ignored.

NYC car bomb suspect appears in court NEW YORK – The suspect in a botched car bombing in Times Square appeared in court Tuesday on terrorism and weapons charges for the first time since his arrest two weeks ago, muttering one word about an affidavit on his finances. Faisal Shahzad, a Pakistan-born U.S. citizen, said “yes” when asked to confirm the affidavit. Shahzad, 30, was led out court after a 10-minute hearing. He did not enter a plea to five felony charges.

RICHMOND, Va. – The U.S. Department of Education found Virginia Tech broke federal campus security laws by waiting too long to notify students during the deadliest shooting rampage in modern U.S. history, a report released Tuesday said. Tech disputed the findings, saying university officials met standards in effect at the time of the shootings three years ago and that the report is colored by “hindsight bias.”

DETROIT (AP) – The family of a 7-year-old girl slain by a police bullet during a raid on their home filed state and federal lawsuits Tuesday against the department. Geoffrey Fieger, the attorney for the family of Aiyana Jones, said Detroit police had no legitimate reason to throw a flash grenade into the home of Aiyana Jones early Sunday.

These ribs get a quick brining prior to grilling and are topped with an Asian-influenced sauce. Serve them as a sandwich with baked beans.

Country-style ribs Meat won’t get lost in the sauce BY J.M. HIRSCH AP FOOD EDITOR

T

he trick to great barbecued ribs is not letting the meat get lost in the sauce. So to keep the pork flavorful and moist – and to give it the substance to stand up to the sauce – I created a quick sweet and peppery brine from brown sugar, kosher salt, peppercorns and garlic powder. A quick – or not, depending on how much time you have – bath in the brine produces exceptionally tender, moist ribs. And to help the meat shine even more, I opted for country-style pork ribs, which are all meat and no bone. As for the barbecue sauce, there’s nothing wrong with using purchased. But it’s easy to make your own, which lets you tweak the flavors. I created a spicy Asian-influenced one for this recipe (it includes ginger, toasted sesame oil and hot sauce).

Brined and Grilled Country-Style Pork Ribs Start to finish: 1 hour 20 minutes (20 minutes active) Servings: 3 For the brine: 2 cups water 1/2 cup packed brown sugar 1/4 cup kosher salt 1 tablespoon whole peppercorns 1 teaspoon garlic powder 4 cups ice 1 1/4 pounds country-style pork ribs For the barbecue sauce: 6-ounce can tomato paste 1/4 cup packed brown sugar Juice of 1/2 lemon 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder 1/4 teaspoon ground dry ginger 1/4 teaspoon cumin 1/4 teaspoon dry mustard powder 1 tablespoon honey 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil 2 tablespoons water Sesame seeds

In a medium saucepan over mediumhigh, combine the water, brown sugar, salt, peppercorns and garlic powder. Bring to a simmer, stirring until the sugar and salt have dissolved. Add the ice and stir until fully cooled. Transfer the brine to a large zip-close plastic bag. Add the ribs, seal the bag and refrigerate at least 1 hour, or up to 8 hours. Meanwhile, prepare the barbecue sauce. In a small bowl, whisk together the tomato paste, brown sugar, lemon juice, salt, garlic powder, ginger, cumin, mustard powder, honey, sesame oil and water. When ready to grill, heat a grill to medium-high. Coat the grate with oil or cooking spray. Drain and discard the brine. Place the ribs on the grill. Brush the tops of the ribs with barbecue sauce, then cover the grill and cook for 5 minutes. Use tongs to flip the ribs, then brush the tops with additional barbecue sauce. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and cook for another 5 to 8 minutes, or until an instant-read thermometer inserted at the thickest part of a rib reads 160 degrees. Just before serving, sprinkle the ribs with sesame seeds.

Recipe allows you to spend less, eat healthier FOR THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

A

beautiful roast can turn a typical meal into a feast. But can it be part of a healthy diet? The answer is yes, when eaten in moderation and when you know how to shop for and prepare the right meat. No matter how you slice it, most meat is high in fat (especially the saturated kind). And as a rule of thumb, the more flavorful the cut, the higher the fat. Most markets post a chart with the nutrition facts for different cuts of meat, so start there. Also, rather than buying pricey “prime” grades of meat, which have the highest percentage of fat (about 35 to 45 percent by weight), choose cuts labeled “choice,” which are 15 to 35 percent fat. Even better, go for “select,” with 7 and 10 percent fat. Markets aren’t required to use these labels, so when in doubt, ask the butcher.

Leg of Lamb with Cherry and Port Wine Sauce Start to finish: 50 minutes (30 minutes active) Servings: 6 2-1/2 pound boneless, butt-end leg of lamb, trimmed of visible fat 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil 1 tablespoon minced garlic 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme or 1 teaspoon dried 1/4 cup Port wine or red wine 1/2 cup dried cherries 3/4 cup cherry juice 3/4 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth 1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch 2 tablespoons water 1 teaspoon reduced-sodium soy sauce, or more to taste Heat the oven to 400 degrees. Use the salt and pepper to season all sides of the lamb.

In a large, ovenproof skillet over medium, heat the oil. Add the lamb and cook until well browned on all sides, about 3 to 4 minutes per side. Place the skillet in the oven and roast the lamb for 20 to 25 minutes, or until an instant thermometer inserted at the thickest part registers 145 degrees (for medium-rare). Transfer the lamb to a carving board and tent with foil to keep warm. Return the skillet to the stovetop over medium. Add the garlic and thyme and stir until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the wine, scraping up the browned bits at the bottom of the pan. Stir in the cherries, cherry juice and chicken broth, then bring to a simmer. In a small bowl, stir together the cornstarch and water. Whisk into the cherry sauce and stir until thickened. Stir in the soy sauce, adding more to taste, if desired. Slice the lamb and transfer to a serving platter. Serve with the sauce.

Wednesday, May 19, 2010 CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Kyle Eastwood, 42; Grace Jones, 62; Pete Townshend, 65; Nora Ephron, 69 HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Remove yourself from any emotional situation you face this year before making a decision or taking action. It’s in your best interest to view what’s going on around you with discernment, especially when it comes to home, family or your community. Know what you want and work slowly toward your goals. Being productive will win in the end. Your numbers are 7, 12, 20, 28, 35, 37, 46 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Try new activities and hobbies and attend events that will introduce you to new people. You will discover a hidden skill or talent. The chance to make extra cash is apparent. ★★★★★ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Problems at home or dealing with personal issues could end in an argument if you aren’t diplomatic. A mistake that disrupts your home and family will be costly. Deal with it quickly. ★★ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Added responsibilities may get you down but, in the long run, taking on a little more will bring you more. Use your energy wisely to accommodate what is asked of you. Love is apparent but can also cost you emotionally. ★★★★ CANCER (June 21-July 22): You need a change. Look at your options and what’s available professionally. Someone you meet will have something to offer that will come in handy. You can surprise people and move ahead with your plans. ★★★ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don’t miss out because of an emotional tie to someone who is jealous or threatened by your interests. Stop second-guessing your next move. Look out for yourself and don’t worry about what everyone else is doing. ★★★ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Keep your plans a secret. You should catch everyone off guard in order to make the biggest impact. Travel, learning and altering your philosophy or lifestyle will help you open doors, bringing you greater freedom. Don’t leave anything to chance. ★★★★★ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Focus on others. Trying to deal with personal issues will only cause more problems. You can make some changes to your home that will provide you with more comfort. It’s time to meet new people and visit new places. ★★★★ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Someone may try to set you up for a fall. An emotional matter is likely to cause upset at home. Make sure everyone is being honest about how they feel, including you. Finish what you start and no one will be able to complain. ★★ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Your past achievements will help you grab the attention of someone who can help. You must not take on responsibilities that will cut into your time or stand in the way of your own success. Love is on the rise. ★★★★★ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don’t leave anything undone if you want to control matters. There is money to be made if you are strict about how you handle your cash. Changes at home will add to your assets. Love is on the rise and a romantic evening should be your intent. ★★★ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Take a long hard look at what’s behind you and what’s ahead. You may have to make some tough choices. Love is apparent – if you are single, get out and socialize. Or, make plans with that special someone in your life. ★★★ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t make promises you cannot keep. A change in your living arrangements may take you by surprise but, in the end, will be better for you. Reconnecting with someone from your past may be difficult but will be worth your while. ★★★

“Beating Minnie requires a whole new approach to dummy play,” Cy the Cynic told me. Minnie Bottoms, my club’s senior member, wears old bifocals that make her mix up kings and jacks, often to her opponents’ dismay. Cy was today’s North, and when West led the seven of hearts against 3NT, Minnie, East, played the jack! “She thought it was the king,” Cy grinned. South took his queen and let the nine of diamonds ride, but Minnie won and led the king of hearts. West was quick to overtake and cash three more hearts.

PLAY LOW “South goofed,” the Cynic said. “Against Minnie, he must lead a LOW diamond to the queen. If Minnie thinks her king is the jack, she’ll play low, and declarer has nine tricks.” Cy may be underestimating Minnie. Her play of the jack of hearts was correct. East can tell that South has one heart higher than the seven. If it’s the ace, 3NT is unbeatable: South will hold up his ace, and West can’t have a side entry. East must hope West has A-10-8-7-2.

DAILY QUESTION You hold: S Q 10 8 7 3 H K J D K 5 2 C 10 7 5. Your partner opens one heart, you respond one spade, he bids two diamonds and you return to two hearts. Partner next bids three diamonds. What do you say? ANSWER: Your partner wouldn’t have disturbed the two-heart contract unless he was still interested in game. Your bid of two hearts showed at most nine points, hence your hand is a super-maximum. Jump to four hearts. Your partner may hold 2, A Q 10 7 6, Q J 10 7 6, A Q. South dealer Both sides vulnerable

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

Post 87 eager for next step T

he American Legion Baseball Post 87 squad tasted unprecedented success last summer. A crushing end to the Junior HiToms’ season left the players hungry for more. “We have guys back on the team from last year and we were very successful last year,” Post 87 coach Rob Shore said. “It was a very tough way to end our season – one game away from the state championship series – and some of the guys are really eager to get back in that position.” Shore’s team actually led Mooresville two games to none before dropping three straight in the best-of-five Area IV quarterfinal series. Both semifinalists advance to the state finale. Mooresville went on to finish third overall. That came as small consolation to Post 87, which finished at 25-12 overall. The Junior HiToms, set to open the season Thursday at MocksvilleDavie, figure to contend once again with an impressive array of pitchers and some new talent in the lineup. Several of the top returning players lead the pitching staff. Former High Point Christian Academy standout Conner Scarborough is finishing up his freshman year throwing for Gardner-Webb. The righthander figures to be Post 87’s most experienced arm. Charlotte-bound Brock Hudgens, from Southwest Guilford, is another top-flight pitcher, with former Ragsdale standout David Coffey back from college after a year as a student at North Carolina. High Point Christian’s Andrew Barnett also returns as a key starter. Among the newcomers to the Legion team are Ragsdale stars DeSean Anderson and Ben Fultz. Anderson will play for South Carolina next year – depending on how things go with the major league draft this summer – and Fultz is headed to East Carolina’s strong program. Their decision to patrol the outfield at Finch Field this summer is huge, Shore said. “One of the tough things is that we’re battling showcase and other types of travel ball,” the coach explained. “Last year we were able to get a lot of players we weren’t able to get in the past, and the quality of players we’re able to get back out this year is the same. The more successful you are – the more consistent you are being successful – kids are going

to hear about it and want to play for that program.” Shore added that another plus is the support he gets from ThomasSPORTS ville HiToms president Greg Steve Suire, who is Hanf always quick ■■■ to welcome former Post 87 standouts back for the summer college circuit. Ledford’s Murray White IV and Trinity’s Matt Dillon are two former Legion stars who will play for the Coastal Plain League’s HiToms this year. Post 87 also welcomes back High Point Christian’s Kevin Sanders, who played for Guilford Tech in the spring; fourth-year player Cameron Hendrix, who just finished helping Wesleyan Christian Academy win a state championship; and Ragsdale’s Mike Whited, headed to Catawba’s diamond next year. Shore, who coaches Trinity High School, will see other familiar faces coming up from the junior Legion program. That group includes Houston Ison of High Point Central, Aaron Blackman of South Davidson and Justin Morrison of High Point Christian. Ragsdale will provide a few more new faces in Tyler Southcott and Kyle Morrison, with other HPCA players Taylor Bergsma and Joseph Powell also joining the group. Former Cougar Huston Harrington – now at Greensboro Day – is out this year, along with Southwest Guilford star Cal Sutphin and Ledford’s Victor Zecca. “Like any Legion program, you’ve got kids from all over who kind of know each other and have heard of each other, but they haven’t really played together,” said Shore, who will be assisted this season by Trinity softball coach David House – a former East Davidson baseball standout. “We have a good group of guys who can mesh together. “I feel great about our pitching and I feel like we can be very dominant at the top of the lineup,” Shore continued. “We just need to find some key guys to fill into the lineup, and I like that. That creates competition, makes everybody work harder.” With just a little more hard work, perhaps Post 87 can clear that final hurdle into the state tournament. shanf@hpe.com | 888-3526

H

ow good is Mariano Rivera? Well, the Yankee closer tied a major-league record by converting 51 consecutive save chances at home and nobody really talked about it until the streak was snapped. People expect Rivera to slam the door every time he enters a game, and the Yankee relief ace almost never disappoints. That’s what made Sunday’s blown save by Big Mo so unusual. He allowed a grand slam to the Twins’ Jason Kubel with two outs in the eighth inning of Minnesota’s 6-3 victory.

Judge dismisses Mayfield’s lawsuit against NASCAR THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

A federal judge on Tuesday dismissed Jeremy Mayfield’s lawsuit against NASCAR, a ruling that presumably ends the yearlong saga surrounding the first Sprint Cup driver suspended for failing a random drug test. U.S. District Judge Graham Mullen in Charlotte ruled that Mayfield had twice waived his rights to pursue any claims against NASCAR when he signed documents both as a driver and as an owner to participate in the stock car series. “Plaintiffs thereby waived their right to pursue their claims for defamation, unfair and deceptive trade

practices, breach of contract, and negligence,” Mullen wrote in his decision. “Plaintiffs’ claims are hereby dismissed.” Mayfield’s wife, Shana, said the couple had no comment on the ruling, which can be appealed. She said attorney Mark Geragos would speak on their behalf. Geragos’ voice mailbox was full, and he did not immediately respond to an e-mail request for comment. Mayfield was suspended last May 9 for failing a random drug test. NASCAR later said the driver tested positive for methamphetamines, a claim Mayfield has consistently denied.

Miller leaves HPU BY GREER SMITH ENTERPRISE SPORTS WRITER

HIGH POINT – High Point University men’s basketball will have a new assistant coach among its staff in addition to seven new players next season. Head coach Scott Cherry is seeking a replacement for Wes Miller, whom Cherry brought in after getting the HPU job last year. Miller is expected to become an assistant at UNC Greensboro. “It is something that’s not unusual for young coaches in this business,” Cherry said. “It was a bit of a surprise because he interviewed and hadn’t heard anything for a couple of weeks, so I thought that he probably wasn’t going to get the job. But then he came in one day and said he was going to take it. He thought it was best for him at this time. I wish him well.” Miller’s season at HPU was his second in coaching. He graduated from UNC in 2007 after playing three seasons for the Tar Heels, played one season on the professional level and

served as an assistant at Elon during the 2008-09 campaign. Miller worked with the guards and was in charge of the team’s equipment and uniforms in addition to the duties he shared with the other assistant coaches. Cherry said he wouldn’t necessarily hire someone that would have responsibility for working with the guards. “That will depend on who we hire,” Cherry said. “I want to get the best person I can. If we get someone who has experience working with big men then I can shift coach (Mike) Balado over to the guards because he has experience doing that.” Cherry hopes to hire a replacement before his five returning players return for the start of the first session of summer school on June 1. “I want to hire someone quickly but not so fast that I don’t get the right person,” Cherry said. “The fiscal year also June 1 so it would be good timing to get someone by then.” gsmith@hpe.com | 888-3556

HIT AND RUN

BASEBALL CINCINNATI MILWAUKEE

It marked Rivera’s first blown save of the season. He had not allowed any runs in 11 innings of work prior to Sunday. Don’t look for Rivera to falter again any time soon. He entered the week with 533 career saves and the 40-year-old has converted an amazing 89.7 percent of his career save opportunities. He’s only surrendered four grand slams and 60 home runs total in 1,101 innings. Allowing one homer every 18.35 innings is a

pretty good way to keep those big innings to a minimum. I’m not sure we appreciate just how good Rivera has been, or how long he’s maintained that high level. He’s so consistently excellent we tend to take his greatness for granted. That too bad, because once he retires, it’s doubtful we’ll ever see a closer of his caliber again.

YOUR COMMUNITY. YOUR NEWSPAPER.

– MARK MCKINNEY ENTERPRISE SPORTS EDITOR

As for that Carlos Zambranoto-the-bullpen experiment, the Chicago Cubs are saying: “Never mind.” Having failed to fix the team’s eighth-inning relief woes or to improve his own performance during his three weeks in the bullpen, the $91.5 million right-hander is returning to the rotation. “We took a chance that we needed to take,” manager Lou Piniella said before Tuesday night’s game against Colorado. “We thought his velocity would increase. It hasn’t. We’re going to stretch him out to get him back in the rotation, and we’ll see when he’s ready.” Piniella said he’d like Zambrano to pitch two or three times in long relief before making the move. Zambrano had 91 victories in his first six full seasons as a Cubs starter before winning only nine times last year. He came to camp this spring in his best shape ever but got rocked by Atlanta on opening day and was 1-2 with a 7.45 ERA in four starts.

All the pit crew guys are really excited about it. The more control they have for the outcome, the more motivation is for them. So I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a cool thing theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m glad theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting the pit crew guys involved and make it a potential for a real good

reward for those pit crew guys.â&#x20AC;?

In two years with Riverside, the players compiled a 46-10 record, won a pair of PAC-6 championships and took Riverside to the East Regional final. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Both of these guys are tireless workers that can really pressure the ball on

defense,â&#x20AC;? Ridge said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They both expect to win. They have been coached by a great high school coach in Tim Ross and they should both compete for playing time. Durham Riverside Richardson continues to help DCCC basketball.â&#x20AC;? The Stormâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s run to the NJCAA Division III national championship tournament last season was sparked by Riverside graduates Kimani Hunt and Phillip Williams. Belvin averaged 10 points, three assists and three rebounds per game, shooting 54 percent from the field and 84 percent at the foul line.

Persiani’s single lifts Ledford past Rockingham County BY DANIEL KENNEDY ENTERPRISE THOMASVILLE BUREAU

WALLBURG – When Sara Persiani stepped to the plate in the bottom of the eighth inning Tuesday, she had every intention of getting the bunt down. With no outs and the game tied 22 with DeAnna Crayton on second, Persiani fouled away two unsuccessful bunt attempts to put herself in a two-strike hole. Panthers coach Charlie Brown would later joke “she didn’t want to bunt anyway.” No matter the intent, the results that ensued could not have been more favorable for Ledford. Persiani ripped an 0-2 pitch from the Cougars’ Katie Lipford into right center field to plate Crayton with the winning run as the Panthers edged Rockingham County 3-2 in the first round of the NCHSAA 3A playoffs. Crayton began Ledford’s half of the inning with a deep fly ball that was dropped by Rockingham’s center fielder for a two-base error, setting the stage for Persiani.

“This was my chance to win it for my team,” Persiani said. “I just kind of knew we’d be able to pull it out. We haven’t had the same mindset all year, but I think we have the team at the beginning of the year back.” Although Ledford played with the same vintage poise that drove the team to a 25-5 record and a deep playoff run in 2009, it took rallying for three runs in the game’s final three innings to secure the win. Kristen Murphy threw eight sparkling innings, allowing two runs on four hits, while fanning 12. The first run – surrendered in the first inning after a bang-bang play resulted in an error at first base that allowed the Cougars’ base runner to score all the way from second – appeared as if it would stand up for the game’s duration. Lipford recorded eight solid innings for Rockingham, scattering seven hits and had the game well in hand for six innings. Countering Murphy’s overpowering arsenal with her finesse style, the Cougar

hurler managed to keep Ledford off the scoreboard through five without striking out a single hitter and took a 2-1 lead into the seventh. Ledford leadoff hitter Jenn Stilley got things started in the bottom of the seventh with a perfectly placed swinging bunt for an infield hit. A close call at first base on the ensuing play went the Panthers way when the umpiress ruled Ashley Best was safe because the Cougar first baseman bobbled the ball as Best stepped safely onto the bag. After Meg Everhart’s groundout to the pitcher moved Stilley and Best to second and third, Mel Green knotted the score at 2-2 with a sacrifice fly hit so shallow into right field that the second baseman fielded the ball and nearly threw out the speedy Stilley at the plate. The Panthers advance for a Friday game against the winner of today’s contest between Northern Vance and Northern Guilford. “I’m really proud of the girls. They just kept at it, kept digging and digging,” Brown said.

East Davidson corrals Mustangs, 12-2 BY ZACH KEPLEY THOMASVILLE TIMES

THOMASVILLE – East Lincoln marched onto the softball field Tuesday evening and gave host East Davidson a scare in the first inning. Apparently, Golden Eagles do not stay spooked for long. East matched the two-spot their opponents put up in the first inning with two in the bottom half, then picked up seven more in the second inning on the way to corralling the Mustangs 12-2 in five innings in the first round of the NCHSAA 2A state playoffs. East (15-7) advances Friday’s second round and will face last night’s Chase/Cuthbertson winner. East Lincoln finishes 10-13.

“I do not know if it was nerves as much as what it was to start the game, but we came back and it was huge for us to score two runs in that first inning,” said East coach Greg Fowler. Spencer Embler and Morgan Gallimore had RBI singles for East in the bottom of the first, erasing a 2-0 lead by the Mustangs. East Lincoln pitcher Brittany Miller was lucky to only give up two runs in the first but her luck would run out the very next inning. Paige Byrd drove in a pair to make it 4-0, then Embler picked up her second RBI on a single to center. Kaley Key sent a 195-foot shot to the bottom of the fence in left for a double to score two more, and Brittany Osborne also added an RBI in

the big inning. East sent 12 batters to the plate to account for the seven runs that made it 9-2. “That makes it a heck of a lot easier when it is 9-2 instead of 2-2,” Fowler said. “I am proud of the way we hit the ball and we ran the bases really well.” Whatever problems Embler had giving up three hits in the first were resolved the rest of the way. The senior hurler allowed only two hits over the final four innings. “She did a great job of keeping her composure and I thought all of us did,” said Fowler. “It was just a good, opening round win.” East scored a run in the fourth on Morgan Gallimore’s RBI groundout, then sent East Lincoln packing in the fifth with two runs to enforce the mercy rule.

Golden Eagles fall to Cavaliers in baseball playoffs BY KEVIN CARVER ENTERPRISE FOREST CITY BUREAU

FOREST CITY – East Rutherford’s A.J. Lynch blasted two homers and three RBI in a 10-1 win over East Davidson in the second round of the NCHSAA 2A baseball playoffs on Tuesday night. Though Lynch produced the most RBIs, East Rutherford crossed at least one Cavalier every inning,

which allows them to move into the third round. East Rutherford’s Dakotah Thomas also did his job to keep the visitors off-balance by throwing five innings, giving up three hits, walking seven and striking out seven. Chip Helton and Tyler Jacobus pitched the sixth and seventh allowing just one more Golden Eagles’ hit. East Rutherford out-hit East Davidson, 14-3. The Cavaliers plated three runs

in the first inning. East Davidson scored on a Justin Hulin groundout that plated Preston Cummings in the second inning. The Golden Eagles missed a golden opportunity in the fifth as the first three batters reaching base in the top half of the inning. But a pickoff of Tyler Leguire at second base and two strikeouts ended the inning. Leguire pitched five innings, gave up 13 hits and nine runs in the loss.

Bishop baseball advances ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORTS

BASEBALL BISHOP 4, SOUTH STANLY 2 NORWOOD – Bishop McGuinness topped South Stanly 4-2 in the second round of the N.C. High School Athletic Association 1A West playoffs on Tuesday night. The Villains improved to 15-9 and advance to a third-round matchup against the Cherryville-East Montgomery winner. Date, site and time are to be determined. South Stanly finished 19-10.

ALBEMARLE 9, S. DAVIDSON 4 ALBEMARLE – South Davidson’s season ended with a 9-4 loss at Albemarle in the second round of the N.C. High School Athletic Association 1A West playoffs on Tuesday night. Albemarle improved to 18-8. The Wildcats finished 9-15.

SOFTBALL EASTERN RANDOLPH 16, T.W. ANDREWS 1 (4) RAMSEUR – For half an inning,

there might have been the slightest uneasiness. At Grady Lawson Field, the Wildcats had seen two bloop hits drop in for a 1-0 deficit. But there was never any panic. The defense turned a double play to get out of the innning, scored the next 16 runs and ran away to a 16-1 four-inning opening-round playoff victory over High Point Andrews at Grady Lawson Field Tuesday night. But once the top of the first inning ended, the game was never in doubt. The Wildcats stepped to the plate with a one-run deficit in the bottom of the first and left with a 10-1 lead. In all, 14 batters stepped to the plate for six hits and the Red Raiders helped out with four errors as Dallas Heaton and Kayla Saliga both had two-run doubles to highlight the frame. But until the bottom of the first, the Red Raiders actually had momentum – even if it was a bit of a fluke. With one out, Elaina Skarote reached on first after a passed ball on the missed third strike. Then Jacqueline Vera dropped a 1-2 pitch

from Heaton just inside the deep right field line for a double to put runners in scoring position, where Kari Norris dropped a pop-shot just over Heaton’s head and in front of charging shortstop Gina Ritter to score Skarote for the brief 1-0 lead. Heaton’s solo home run and two more HPA errors opened the door for the Wildcats to push across three more in the third for a 13-1 lead. Heaton went 4-for-4 on the night, with four RBIs and four runs scored to pace the Wildcats’ 12-hit attack.

MOUNT PLEASANT 3, S. GUILFORD 0 MOUNT PLEASANT – Mount Pleasant eliminated Southern Guilford from the N.C. High School Athletic Association 3A West playoffs with a 3-0 first-round victory on Tuesday. Mount Pleasant improved to 1611. The Storm finished 17-7.

CHERRYVILLE 13, S. DAVIDSON 0 CHERRYVILLE – Cherryville ousted South Davidson from the N.C. High School Athletic Association 1A West playoffs with a 13-0 first-round victory on Tuesday night. The Ironmen improved to 19-5. The Wildcats finish 6-16.

Southern Cal leads NCAA women’s golf WILMINGTON (AP) – Southern California shot 6-under-par 282 on Tuesday to take a two-stroke lead on Purdue after the first round of the NCAA women’s golf championships. Southern Cal’s Jennifer Song, Purdue’s Maude-Aimee LeBlanc and Arizona State’s Jennifer Johnson each shot 5-under 67s to share the individual lead at the Country Club of Landfall. USC and Purdue were the only teams under par at the 6,368-yard

Pete Dye Course. Defending champion Arizona State and top-ranked UCLA, two of six Pac-10 members in the 24-team field, were tied for third with Duke at 288. Alabama and Florida State were at 1 over. Arizona State has won seven NCAA titles, the most of any Division I team, and Duke has won five – all since 1999. Song and Johnson in particular finished strong. Song eagled the 18th hole, hitting an approach from about 175 yards within a few feet of

the hole. Johnson made four birdies in her final six holes. The fourth-ranked Trojans also got a strong round from Cyna Rodriguez, who shot 4-under 68 to share second place with UCLA’s Brianna Do and Duke’s Kim Donovan. A total of 19 players shot rounds under par on the first day. FSU’s Jessica Negron, the nation’s 93rd-ranked player, shot a bogeyfree 69. Teammate Maria Salinas had a 2-under 70. The four-round tournament concludes Friday.

Los Angeles guard Kobe Bryant dunks during the second half of Game 1 of the NBA basketball Western Conference finals against the Phoenix Suns late Monday night in Los Angeles. Bryant scored 40 points as the Lakers won 128-107. Game 2 is tonight.

Suns expect to bounce back strong from thrashing by Lakers LOS ANGELES (AP) – Channing Frye is just grateful an NBA playoff series doesn’t follow the Tour de France’s rules. After enduring their largest blowout loss in four months in the Western Conference finals opener, the Phoenix Suns don’t have to begin Game 2 way behind the guys in the yellow jerseys. “They’re not going to start out with a 30point lead,” said Frye, forgetting the Suns lost to the Lakers by a mere 21 points Monday night. “It’s over, and we’re going to be even again, so hopefully we’ll do a better job.” The Suns seemed cautiously upbeat Tuesday at their Staples Center workout following Los Angeles’ 128-107 victory in the opener. Coach Alvin Gentry held court with team personnel at the scorers’ table, while Steve Nash calmly sipped a cup of tea across the way. And Amare Stoudemire was still talking tough before Game 2 tonight. The Suns forward, who promised physical play against the Lakers’ bulky frontcourt before the series, was unimpressed by Lamar Odom, who had 19 points and 19

rebounds off the Lakers’ bench in the opener. “He had a lucky game in Game 1,” said Stoudemire, who seems particularly fiery in what might be his last few games with Phoenix if he declines a contract option and becomes a free agent this summer. Odom and his teammates could only chuckle at Stoudemire’s bravado after another workout at their El Segundo training complex. Odom’s versatile, aggressive effort helped Los Angeles hold off the Suns in the first half until Kobe Bryant scorched them for 21 points in the third quarter. With a little luck, the Lakers could be on a roll to their third straight NBA finals after a commanding performance in their seventh straight playoff win. Stoudemire’s teammates aren’t counting on good fortune to help them recover from their one-sided loss. They remain confident their pick-and-roll offense will create easier baskets later in the series, and they also hope to stop the Lakers from hitting 58 percent of their shots, as Bryant and Co. did in their highest-scoring playoff game in more than two years.

Wizards hit jackpot in NBA’s draft lottery SECAUCUS, N.J. (AP) – With a lucky charm from the franchise’s best days, the Washington Wizards won the NBA’s draft lottery Tuesday night. Washington moved up from the No. 5 spot to earn the top pick in next month’s draft, when it will likely choose between Kentucky freshman John Wall and national player of the year Evan Turner of Ohio State. The Wizards were represented by Irene Pollin, who wore the 1978 Bullets championship ring of her late husband, longtime owner Abe Pollin. When the Wizards pulled off the surprising win, Irene Pollin’s jaw dropped and appeared to mouth ’Oh my God!!’ with wide eyes. Abe Pollin died at age 85 in November.

The lottery victory is one of the rare things that has gone right in a disastrous year for the Wizards, marred by the suspension of Gilbert Arenas for bringing guns into the Verizon Center locker room. They finished 26-56 after being widely forecast to finish in the middle of the Eastern Conference. Now they hope the No. 1 pick can help spark a quick turnaround under Ted Leonsis, who is close to completing a deal to buy the franchise from the Pollin family. The Philadelphia 76ers, another disappointment this season, moved up to grab the No. 2 pick. The New Jersey Nets continued the run of failure by teams with the best chance of winning, falling to the third pick.

New home construction rises WASHINGTON (AP) — Construction of homes surged in April to the highest level in 18 months, fueled by buyers capitalizing on an expiring tax credit. Permits for new construction sank, signaling the rebound could fade. Low mortgage rates and two tax credits — up to $8,000 for new buyers and $6,500 for current owners who buy and move into another home — have boosted home sales this year. To receive a tax credit, borrowers had to have a signed offer by April 30 and must close the deal by the end of June. The rate of home building has now risen more than 40 percent from the bottom in April 2009,

Seasonal items give Home Depot boost NEW YORK (AP) — Home Depot Inc.’s fiscal first-quarter net income surged 41 percent as shoppers snatched up seasonal items and the number of customer transactions rose. This is a positive sign for the No. 1 U.S. home improvement retailer, as consumers cut back on home-improvement projects during the recession and housing slump, and Home Depot responded to those weak sales by scaling back store openings and cutting jobs.

Oil rising again after two-week selloff NEW YORK (AP) — The two-week slide in oil prices that dragged crude down to its lowest price of the year ended Tuesday.The question now is whether it is the start of a new trend higher or just a pause before prices fall again. Benchmark crude for June delivery rose 76 cents to $70.84 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

Pfizer to trim 6,000 jobs, shut 8 plants NEW YORK (AP) — Pfizer Inc. said Tuesday it will cut 6,000 jobs as it trims manufacturing capacity for health care products worldwide after acquiring smaller rival Wyeth last year. The world’s biggest drugmaker and producer of Viagra says it will cease operations at eight plants in Ireland, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. by the end of 2015, and reduce operations at six other plants over the next several years.

DILBERT

though it’s still down 70 percent from the decade’s peak in January 2006. Without the tax credit, analysts say home sales will slow in the second half of this year. High unemployment and tight lending standards will likely help keep many buyers away. The report Tuesday from the Commerce Department said the rate of construction of singlefamily homes and apartment buildings rose 5.8 percent last month to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 672,000. That was up from an upwardly revised March level of 635,000. The rate, the highest since October 2008, was driven by a 10 percent increase in single-family

home building. A separate report Tuesday showed wholesale inflation remains tame. Prices fell 0.1 percent in April, the second drop in three months. Core inflation, which excludes volatile energy and food prices, rose 0.2 percent, the Labor Department said. But over the past year, core prices are up just 1 percent. The absence of inflation pressures means the Federal Reserve can keep interest rates at record lows to bolster the economic recovery. In the Commerce report, the government said building permits, a gauge of future activity, sank 11.5 percent to an annual rate of 606,000.

EU: Crisis requires both cuts and spending BRUSSELS (AP) — Some European governments must slash debt sharply but others should keep spending to boost growth across the 27-nation bloc, a top EU offical urged Tuesday, as the region tries to solve a debt crisis by imposing budget cuts that risk triggering a new recession. European Union Economy Commissioner Olli Rehn said financially troubled Greece, Spain and Portugal must push through harsh austerity programs now. But he warned that “efforts should be different according to the fiscal situation.” Countries running relatively lower deficits could “maintain less restrictive fiscal stances for the sake

of growth in Europe as a whole,” Rehn told reporters. Investors fear that the austerity measures to deal with the debt crisis will be hurt economic growth for years by cutting off government stimulus to the economy. Fears of an immediate default have been eased by a €750 billion ($1 trillion) rescue package that is to be made available to governments if they need it. But for the long term, many wonder whether some countries will face growth so weak they will have trouble paying off debts. Spain acknowledged Tuesday that new austerity measures demanded by other EU nations will curb its economic growth next year.

Wal-Mart net income rises 10% NEW YORK (AP) — WalMart Stores Inc.’s firstquarter net income rose 10 percent as the world’s largest retailer benefited from cost-cutting and robust growth in its international business. But Wal-Mart said a key measure of revenue dropped for the fourth consecutive quarter as it continued to see a decline in customer counts at its U.S. namesake stores. It also offered a muted outlook for the current quarter as shoppers worry about jobs and their finances. Still, Wal-Mart’s shares

rose more than 2 percent, or $1.29, to $53.99 because results beat Wall Street expectations. Wal-Mart said Tuesday net income was $3.32 billion, or 88 cents per share for the period ended April 30. That compares with $3.02 billion, or 77 cents per share in the same quarter last year. Revenue rose almost 6 percent to $99.85 billion, from $94.24 billion. Analysts surveyed by Thomson Reuters expected profit of 84 cents per share on revenue of $98.45 billion for the period.

NEW YORK (AP) – Investors uneasy about the news coming out of Europe Tuesday went back to selling stocks sharply lower. The falling euro and news that German regulators plan to limit some kinds of short selling fed the drop. The Dow Jones industrial average closed down almost 115 points after giving up an early gain of 93. The Dow and broader indexes lost more than 1 percent. The euro gave stocks a boost early in the day when European Union countries sent bailout money to Greece. The move raised confidence about Europe’s ability to prevent its debt crisis from spreading to other economies including the U.S. By afternoon, though, the upbeat mood faded and the euro fell. That sapped the stock market’s strength. Treasury prices rose after demand for safer investments increased. The euro, the currency shared by 16 European nations, has been driving stock trading for weeks as investors interpreted its slide as a sign of continuing economic problems in Europe. It hit a new four-year low of $1.2160 on Tuesday. Meanwhile, Germany said it is banning “naked” short selling, which occurs when traders bet on a stock or investment that they don’t own.

New Panera location says pay what you want CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Panera Bread Co. is asking customers at a new restaurant to pay what they want. The national bakery and restaurant chain launched a new nonprofit store here this week that has the same menu as its other 1,400 locations. But the prices are a little different â&#x20AC;&#x201C; there arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t any. Customers are told to donate what they want for a meal, whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the full suggested price, a penny or $100.

The new store in the upscale St. Louis suburb of Clayton is the first of what will Panera hopes will be many around the country. Ronald Shaich, Paneraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s CEO until last week, was on hand at the new bakery Monday to explain the system to customers. The pilot restaurant is run by a nonprofit foundation. If it can sustain itself financially, Panera will expand the model around the country within months. It all depends

RALEIGH â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Triangleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cable TV provider is negotiating new contracts with two broadcasters, and any breakdown could lead to blackouts for viewers this summer. Time Warner Cableâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contract with Raleighbased Capitol Broadcasting, which owns WRALTV and Fox 50, as well as stations in Charlotte and Wilmington, expires June 30. Its contract with Walt Disney Co., which owns ABC, ESPN and other channels, expires at the end of August. Broadcasters want to collect new fees from cable providers to boost revenue and offset weaker advertising sales. Time Warner Cable isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t eager to hand over any more money for programming. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Typically, these contracts are worked out behind the scenes, and cus-

tomers never see a thing,â&#x20AC;? said local Time Warner Cable spokesman Keith Poston. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plenty of time between now and then to work things out. The best case is when customers never know about it.â&#x20AC;? Still, Time Warner Cableâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s private negotiations with other broadcasters in recent years have become very public battles. In late 2008, Viacom and Time Warner Cable both ran ads warning that their dispute could knock out channels such as Nickelodeon, home of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dora the Explorer.â&#x20AC;? WRAL General Manager Steven Hammel declined to comment on any specifics of the contract negotiations. He pointed out that Capitol, a privately held company controlled by CEO Jim Goodmon, has had a long relationship with Time Warner Cable. WRAL, the Triangleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s CBS affiliate, is this marketâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top-rated station.
