HIGH POINT – Should the city implement a new fee to make up for a continued decline in revenue, or should additional costcutting measures be taken? That was one question City Council members debated dur-

ing a review of City Manager Strib Boynton’s proposed 201011 budget Wednesday. The draft spending plan holds the property tax rate steady, but it calls for utility-rate increases and includes a proposed $6 monthly fee for garbage collection that would kick in Jan. 1. “I’ve gotten a lot of calls from

Funding bill filed for furniture market BY PAUL B. JOHNSON ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – Area state representatives filed a bill this week to secure about $2 million for the High Point Market, a move that would maintain state support for the trade show at about its current level. Keeping to a pledge made before the 2010 N.C. General Assembly session began a week ago, the local House delegation submitted a bill Tuesday that basically holds the line on furniture market funding in a tough fiscal year. House Bill 1820 would secure $848,925 for the 2010-11 fiscal year to support promotion and marketing of the

world’s largest home furnishings trade show, which is the singlelargest economic event in North Carolina each year. Another $1.2 million would support transportation services for the 160,000 marketgoers who attend the trade show annually. The state’s new fiscal year begins July 1, and legislators and Gov. Beverly Perdue are trying to plug a shortfall estimated at $800 million to $1 billion in a $19 billion budget. The Senate gave initial approval Wednesday afternoon to its version of the state budget. The Senate version maintains the level of transportation services funding for the market, but cuts the promotion and marketing money by

5 percent from the current state budget as part of an across-theboard reduction of appropriations to balance the budget, according to the office of Senate President Pro Tem Marc Basnight, D-Dare. The Senate version, once passed in full, will go to the House for consideration. The High Point Market Authority’s proposed 2010-11 fiscal year budget projects $2 million in revenues from state appropriations. The agency’s total revenues for the upcoming fiscal year are projected at $5 million. The furniture market bill’s primary cosponsors are Reps. Maggie Jeffus, D-Guilford, Alma Adams, D-Guilford, Laura Wiley, R-Guil-

ford, and Earl Jones, D-Guilford. House Bill 1820 references the market’s annual estimated economic impact of $1.2 billion to the state and its tie to 65,362 jobs in the Triad. Market Authority President Brian Casey said trade show supporters already have traveled to Raleigh twice to meet with legislators about the importance of market funding. “We are reinforcing the fact that support of this market is essential. We’re really at a turning point; so now is really an important time to continue that investment,” Casey said Wednesday.

Council targets substandard dwellings BY PAT KIMBROUGH ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

Fair, market get a boost ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

Can you guess which editor prodded High Point to begin hosting “a regular country fair, and at the same time have the best furniture exhibition that could be given south of the Mason-Dixon line”? Find out by reading the special anniversary edition to be distributed on May 28.

HIGH POINT – City leaders have taken additional action to try to put a dent in High Point’s backlog of blighted properties. The High Point City Council this week adopted ordinances to demolish two dwellings and to close five others. Council members said both houses marked for demolition – 1105 E. Russell Ave. and 311 A & B Park St. – were on the city’s original master list of substandard properties that date back 10 years. Bob Bradley, the father of the owner of the Russell Avenue house, told the council that considerable investment had been made to improve the house, but vandals who break windows and write gang graffiti have been a continuous problem. “You need to clean up that neighborhood before you can have decent housing,” Bradley told the council. Council members pointed out that the property has numerous alleged minimum housing code violations, including no heating system, walls that were erected without proper permits and structural violations making it unsafe and virtually uninhabitable. “Gangs don’t write on houses that


Tall grass, shrubs and trees all but obscure this house at 1105 E. Russell Ave. people live in,” said Councilwoman Bernita Sims. “This has been there for 10 years. It’s not fair to the people in that neighborhood.” City inspectors also found structural violations, inoperable heating equipment and other code violations at the Park Street property. Owner Johnny Mitchell said he would like time to fix, sell or donate the property, but wasn’t sure it was worth the investment. Council members said they believed he had already been given ample time to bring it up to code. The demolition ordinances


gave both property owners 30 days to bring the houses up to code. Various other properties on Venable Court, Meredith Street, Ridgeway Place, Fairview Street and Putnam Street were ordered vacated or closed because of multiple code violations. Inspectors said the owners of some of the properties have completed repairs and are in the process of additional work that, if completed, could bring the sites up to code. | 888-3531

Karen Wall, director of events, sales and operations at Showplace, said the organizer of the group didn’t want to sign contracts with hotels next year because hotels this year had contacted him requesting payment for some rooms that weren’t filled during the show in February. “I’m afraid we’re going to lose (the show) to Charlotte if this isn’t passed,” Wall said about he incentive. The show was held in Charlotte for three years before coming to High Point. Charlotte Young, HPCVB president, said it was not standard practice to pass an incentive that didn’t include hotel contracts, but she also stressed the importance of the show, which brought 1,500 people to High Point this year with an economic impact of $440,805 on the city, according to HPCVB data. | 888-3617

HIGH POINT – When High Point was struck by ice storms during the winter of 2002-03, Chris Thompson sprang into action. With downed trees and blocked roadways, Thompson, High Point’s public services director, quickly recruited members from other public services divisions, rallying crews to ensure roadways would be clear for emergency vehicles. Thompson was officially recognized for these and other efforts in the city by being honored as one of the 2010 Top 10 Public Works Leaders of the Year. Thompson received the award at the High Point City Council’s Monday meeting. The award, sponsored by the American Public Works Association, recognizes outstanding individuals in the

public works field across the U.S. and Canada. Both Gov. Bev Perdue and High Point Mayor Becky Smothers prepared proclamations in honor of Thompson’s award. The award coincides with the 50th anniversary of National Public Works Week, which began Sunday and runs through Saturday. The week is a time to recognize those in the community who operate public works systems. Smothers said Thompson is “thorough and concise,” and “has handled some difficult public issues with patience and respect for the public.” Thompson attributes a large part of the award to his staff. “One person doesn’t do all of the work alone,” he said. “The credit comes my way because I’m in charge, but credit’s due to everyone on my great staff.” | 888-3537

the partially naked body on Tuesday just off a path in the woods across the street from a park. Police have not yet said if the assault was sexual in nature. It is also unknown how long the body had been there. Those interviewed


in the case said they had seen Walley as early as last Friday, according to WXII. No suspects have been identified in the death. Anyone with information is asked to call Crimestoppers at 800-6727463.

Homeless man walks across field during game

ALTOONA, Pa. (AP) – Authorities say a homeless man who said he was looking for the fastest route to a concession stand was arrested after walking onto the outfield during a minor league baseball game in Pennsylvania. Logan Township police say they’ll file crimi-

nal trespass, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness charges against 24-year-old Tyrone Squires over Tuesday night’s incident. Police say Squires is from Massachusetts but has no permanent address. Police say Squires lowered himself over a fence and onto the field

during the bottom of the ninth inning during an Altoona Curve game against the Akron Aeros. Ballpark security allowed him to walk slowly along the outfield warning track and grabbed him as he exited near the Curve bullpen along the right field line.

holding other positions vacant through at least June 30, 2011. “Those include the police and fire departments, and if the economy turns around, we’re going to need to fund them,” Boynton said. “We need them filled right now, we just don’t have the cash paperwork.” He said city departments were coping with the freeze by shifting responsibilities among employees, changing job titles and other measures. “I would venture to say that every business in the city has had to cut pretty drastically the last two years,” said Councilman John Faircloth. “We need to make sure we’re recognizing in the public sector the problems that are happening in the private sector, because they’re the ones paying the bills.”

Boynton said a 2 or 3 percent pay cut for city employees is a possible alternative, but options are limited when revenue sources continue to shrink. “We’ve cut things pretty drastically,” he said. “In the end, if you can’t put it on property tax, and it’s not coming in on sales tax, it falls to fees.” Increasing the property tax rate of 63.3 cents per $100 valuation by 1.3 or 1.4 cents would provide the same amount of revenue as the garbage fee, officials said. Others pointed out that if sales tax revenues increase, such a measure might not be necessary. “It’s a worst-case scenario,” said Mayor Becky Smothers.

RALEIGH (AP) – The state Senate gave tentative approval Wednesday to a nearly $19 billion plan to run North Carolina state government for the coming year that largely gave public education a break from the worst cuts at the expense of health care and other programs. The chamber voted 32-17 in favor of a plan that closes what Democratic leaders call a projected 4 percent revenue shortfall. All Democrats present joined three Republicans in support of the adjustments rolled out on the floor only a week after the Legislature convened this year’s session. Speakers used the word “pain� several times during the nearly two-hour debate about a budget that would trim expenses in dozens of agencies and reduce spending in the Department of Health and Human Services by 9 percent compared to what had already been approved for the new year. Local school districts and the University of North Carolina system also would receive authority to furlough teachers and other employees to help avoid the potential loss of 1,600 jobs. “No one wants to be furloughed,�

and trying to figure out what had happened. None of them wanted to be interviewed. The garage on the white, one-and-a-half story home, located at 7716 La Finca Road, was heavily damaged. Large sections of the garage door could be seen in the middle and at the end of the driveway. Broken glass littered the area. “One person is injured and has been airlifted to Pitt Memorial Hospital for treatment,� Farmer said. He declined to release the name of the victim until all of the family was notified. It wasn’t confirmed whether the person transported to Greenville was the homeowner.

MOREHEAD CITY (AP) – The director of the state Division of Marine Fisheries says a settlement regarding the use of gill nets protects both gill net fishing and sea turtles. The Daily News of Jacksonville reported that division director Louis Daniels said at a news conference Tuesday that gill net fishing could have ended had the issue gone to court instead of being settled last week. The Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Center sued in February to protest the use of gill nets by coastal fishermen.

There would be no pay raises for teachers and other state employees for a second straight year. it to the House, whose leaders are aiming to get its version approved by June 3. It would give lawmakers roughly three weeks to negotiate a final plan and send it to Democratic Gov. Beverly Perdue before the new fiscal year begins July 1. The budget would trim the second year of the two-year spending plan approved last summer by nearly $600 million and spend $187 million less than Perdue’s budget offer last month. The changes are designed to narrow a projected budget gap of $800 million to $1 billion caused by flagging state revenues.

“We keep North Carolina sound fiscally,� said Sen. Linda Garrou, D-Forsyth, another budget-writer. But Republicans contend the budget actually increases government spending when compared to actual state spending for this year when up to 5 percent was held back by Perdue. It also fails to prepare the state for the loss of more than $1 billion in stimulus funds in 2011 by freezing spending at current levels, said Senate Minority Leader Phil Berger, R-Rockingham. “They just put a Band-Aid on a bleeding artery,� said Sen. Bob Rucho, R-Mecklenburg. “You’re going to think this is Christmas time compared to what we’ll be facing.� Still, GOP Sens. Fletcher Hartsell of Cabarrus County, Stan Bingham of Davidson County and Richard Stevens of Wake County voted for the budget bill. The three voted for the Senate’s version of the budget last year, too. Overall, the public schools would see a 3 percent reduction, or about $219 million less to a budget of $7.1 billion. The Senate plan doesn’t eliminate a requirement that school districts locate another $80 million in cuts.

6 killed by car bomb south of Baghdad BAGHDAD – A car bomb exploded in front of a restaurant killing six people south of Baghdad on Wednesday, Iraqi officials said, highlighting the fragile nature of Iraq’s security. The bomb in the mixed Sunni-Shiite town comes as the country enters its third month without a new government, raising concerns that violence will rise as political disputes spill out into the streets.

Diplomat: ’Obvious’ North Korea sank ship SEOUL, South Korea – North Korea is clearly responsible for the sinking of a South Korean navy ship and there is sufficient evidence to take the issue to the United Nations, South Korea’s top diplomat said Wednesday. Foreign Minister Yu Myung-hwan’s comments came a day before the release of a report on the incident and are the first by a South Korean official clearly saying North Korea was behind it. Asked later by reporters if North Korea sank the Cheonan, Yu replied, “I think it’s obvious.”

Passengers in cockpit before Kaczynski crash MOSCOW – At least two passengers visited the cockpit of Polish President Lech Kaczynski’s plane before it crashed last month, and others may have chatted on cell phones, possibly affecting navigation as the crew battled heavy fog over challenging terrain. Those were among the details revealed Wednesday by Russian and Polish officials investigating the April 10 crash that killed Kaczynski, his wife and 94 others outside the western Russian city of Smolensk.

Freedom appeals Mothers of 3 detained Americans arrive in Iran TEHRAN, Iran (AP) – The mothers of three jailed Americans brought appeals for their freedom to Iran Wednesday on a mission that could be complicated by diplomatic showdowns over Iran’s nuclear program. The women are scheduled to visit their children – who have been held since July when they were arrested along the Iraqi border – and seek meetings with Iranian officials. Iran’s state-run Press TV said weeklong visas had been granted on an “Islamic humanitarian basis.” Nora Shourd, Cindy Hickey and Laura Fattal wore long black headscarves as they left their flight from Dubai at Tehran’s main international airport south of the capital. They passed through routine customs and passport checks as well being fingerprinted – a requirement imposed on Americans in retaliation for U.S. immigration controls on Iranians.

Iran rejects UN sanctions resolution draft TEHRAN, Iran – Iran on Wednesday dismissed as “illegitimate” a draft U.N. Security Council resolution seeking to impose harsher sanctions against Tehran for its refusal to halt uranium enrichment. Mojtaba Hashemi Samareh, a top adviser to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, said the draft proposed by the U.S. was a reactionary response to a deal in which Iran agreed to ship much of its low-enriched uranium to Turkey.

Kyrgyzstan declares state of emergency BISHKEK, Kyrgyzstan – Several thousand people tried to storm a university in Kyrgyzstan on Wednesday in a burst of ethnic violence that left at least 2 people dead and more than 70 wounded, prompting the interim government to call a local state of emergency. Witnesses in the southern town of Jalal-Abad said thousands of ethnic Kyrgyz advanced on the private university that serves as the center of the minority Uzbek community.

Bangkok in flames after army storms camp BANGKOK – Buildings blazed across central Bangkok early today, torched by rioters after army troops routed anti-government protesters to end a two-month siege. The government quelled most of the violence in Bangkok but not the underlying political divisions that caused it, and unrest spread to northern parts of Thailand. At least six people were killed in clashes that followed the army’s storming of the protest camp Wednesday.

Anger prompts Pakistan to block Facebook LAHORE, Pakistan – Pakistan’s government ordered Internet service providers to block Facebook on Wednesday amid anger over a page that encourages users to post images of Islam’s Prophet Muhammad. The page on the social networking site has generated criticism in Pakistan and elsewhere because Islam prohibits any images of the prophet. The government took action after a group of Islamic lawyers won a court order Wednesday requiring officials to block Facebook until May 31.

1,500 Haitians to be evicted from property NASSAU, Bahamas – An estimated 1,500 Haitians are to be evicted from a cluster of overcrowded shacks on a Bahamian island east of Miami, leaving residents and the government to wonder where the community will settle next. Eviction notices were issued because a new owner took over the 5-acre property on Abaco Island that has housed the Haitian community for more than 30 years. ENTERPRISE NEWS SERVICE REPORTS

Taliban attack key base in Afghanistan KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) – Taliban insurgents armed with rockets, grenades and suicide vests stormed the giant Bagram Air Field before dawn Wednesday, triggering an eight-hour firefight that killed an American contractor and at least 10 attackers and wounded nine U.S. service members. As troops and contractors huddled in secure bunkers, the militants fired their weapons over American defenses into the base, according to Maj. Virginia McCabe, a spokeswoman for U.S. forces at Bagram. White smoke could be seen rising from the garrison as

US, Cuba hold talks on oil spill HAVANA (AP) – U.S and Cuban officials are holding “working level” talks on how to respond to the massive Deepwater Horizon oil spill that is believed to be dumping some 5,000 barrels of crude a day into the Gulf of Mexico, two State Department officials told The Associated Press on Wednesday. The talks add to signs of concern that strong currents could carry the slick far from the site of the spill, possibly threatening the Florida Keys and the pristine white beaches along Cuba’s northern coast. They are also a rare moment of cooperation between two countries locked in conflict for more than half a century. “I can confirm that they are ongoing and going on at the working level,” State Department Spokesman Gordon Duguid told reporters in Washington.

U.S. attack helicopters whirred overhead. It was the second major Taliban assault in the Kabul area in as many days, breaking a nearly three-month lull in insurgent attacks around the Afghan capital. Eighteen people, including five U.S. soldiers and a Canadian colonel, were killed Tuesday in a suicide car bombing in Kabul. Those brazen assaults underscore the militants’ ability to strike at the heart of the U.S.-led mission and appear part of a new Taliban offensive against NATO forces, foreign diplomats, contractors and Afghan government officials.

“We are here to visit our children that we haven’t seen for 10 months. We miss them very much,” said Shourd before bursting into tears.

Small part of oil slick reaches powerful current ROBERT, La. (AP) – Federal scientists said Wednesday that a small portion of the oil slick from the blown-out well in the Gulf of Mexico has reached a powerful current that could take it to Florida. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration scientists said they have detected light to very light sheens in the loop current, which circulates into the Gulf and takes water south to the Florida Keys and the Gulf Stream. The agency says that any oil would be “highly weathered� and could evaporate before reaching Florida. And it might never reach the state at all. But scientists said diluted oil could appear in isolated locations if persistent winds push the

Khalid Ouazzani, 32, a Moroccan native who became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 2006, admitted that he sent $23,500 to al-Qaida between August 2007 and mid-2008.

He said the adults opened windows and the back door to let the smoke out before quickly deciding to leave. “Kind of scared me because the driver was still up there, and I thought he was going to die,� the boy told KTLA-TV. The California Highway Patrol is investigating the cause of the fire.

Fire spokesman Erik Scott said it took firefighters 11 minutes to extinguish the fire, which witnesses claim started in the front and gutted the bus.

Arlen Specter on Tuesday, as Democratic voters picked the candidate who had bucked party leaders to challenge the Republican-turned-Democrat. The vote also was a defeat for President Barack Obama, whose support Specter received when he abandoned the Republican Party last year.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) – Joe Sestak had barely won the Democratic nod to run for U.S. Senate before he pledged to begin the next campaign within a matter of hours.

Astronaut untangles cable on boom CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. – A spacewalking astronaut freed a snagged cable on the inspection boom for shuttle Atlantis on Wednesday, accomplishing the job in a matter of minutes and earning a “superhero� title. With that behind him, Stephen Bowen whipped through a slew of space station battery replacements. Bowen and his spacewalking partner, Michael Good, plugged in four new batteries at the International Space Station and even repaired a loose antenna.

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Motorists jumped from vehicles to kick open doors and help about two dozen third-graders out of a blazing school bus that had stalled on a busy freeway Wednesday near Universal Studios Hollywood, authorities and witnesses said. Two children complained of minor smoke

The Coast Guard announced Wednesday that tar balls washing ashore in the Florida Keys were not from the Gulf spill, but that did little to soothe fears the oil could spread damage along the coast from Louisiana to Florida. The U.S. and Cuba were holding talks on how to respond to the spill, U.S. State Department spokesman Gordon Duguid said, underscoring worries about the oil reaching the loop current and being carried to the Florida Keys and the pristine white beaches of Cuba’s northern coast. BP said Wednesday it hopes to begin shooting a mixture known as drilling mud into the blown-out well in the Gulf of Mexico early next week.

We have created a ‘government owes me’ society As I travel from place to place, I hear expressions of frustration with the direction our country is being taken. One of the questions most often asked is, “How did we get here? As I contemplate this question, I remember some of what may have contributed to where we are now. It may have started before the 1960s, but I believe it started with the flower children, Timothy Leary, Dr. Spock, Women’s Lib, the ACLU and the education system, which contributed to the deterioration of family and moral values, and eroded responsibility and accountability. Our schools abandoned prayer, the Pledge of Allegiance, dress codes, prohibited discipline when needed and became institutions for indoctrination of our children into a selfish, undisciplined “the government owes me” society. Some of our churches now preach situational sermons to fit a “whatever feels good” attitude rather than adherence to righteousness. Government continues to change the meaning of our Con-



stitution by appointing liberal judges whose rulings aim to legislate rather than interpret the law. We caved in to acceptance. We vote for the same legislators time after time regardless how they twist in the wind, or worse, we do not vote at all. The voter turnout in the primaries was pathetic. We have surrendered to political correctness and are made to feel guilty to keep silent. Our administration promotes the falsehood that we can buy love from other countries by being weak. We allowed God to be removed from public places because it may offend a few. We accepted right for wrong and wrong for right and allowed our nation to be terrorized into submission by special interest groups. Can this be reversed? Perhaps with leaders who are ethical, godly and who will not surrender. Joel Osteen once said, “We never change what we tolerate.” FRAN RAFANOVIC High Point

Wreck shows need for track improvements

Davis to Superior Court bench



Founded in 1885

We should return Lindsay


ortunately, only minor injuries resulted when the Amtrak Piedmont, on its way to High Point and Charlotte, collided with a truck that had gotten stuck on the tracks in Mebane last Thursday. From early reports that morning, the incident sounded like it was a major disaster in the making. The accident’s proximity to a Mebane fire station may have helped avert a more serious injury toll, and we’re glad that was the case. But this accident only serves to reinforce our view that significant improvements are needed, and needed immediately, to the rail corridor through central North Carolina that in just a few years will be carrying high-speed trains along the eastern seaboard. Last week’s accident occurred after a lowhanging trailer got stuck on the crown of a street-crossing of the track. Similar examples of such crossings have existed along the line for years, although some are being closed because of their obvious design hazard. But potentially more dangerous, although structural hazards are less a problem, are crossings such as the Hoskins Street crossing in High Point. The Hoskins Street crossing is an example of numerous locations along the line where busy crossings must be modified to accommodate the needs of high-speed rail but at the same time continue to provide the community with the convenience of access to each side of the tracks. In other locations, crossings will need to be closed to increase safety. And in some cases, those decisions will not be easy. In no way, however, can this accident be used as an argument for slowing the pursuit of a high-speed rail system of transportation. The United States is behind much of the world in that, and an efficient, long-distance, high-speed passenger system is needed. Work toward it must go on.

They missed a teachable moment in Morgan Hill


ids say the darnedest things. That’s how you know they’re kids. Their fondness for rash overstatement is part and parcel of a stage of life characterized by impulsiveness and an unshakable faith in one’s own righteousness. The challenge for schools is to balance kids’ impetuousness against their right of free speech. As any parent can attest, sometimes you have to protect kids from themselves. But if you overprotect them, how do they ever learn to use their rights responsibly? That question brings us to Morgan Hill, Calif., where several boys recently decided to wear American flag T-shirts to Live Oak High School. It may sound innocuous, but it wasn’t. See, the boys, some of whom are Mexican-American, did this on May 5 – Cinco de Mayo, as their classmates (nearly 40 percent of whom are reported to be Latino) were celebrating that Mexican holiday, some even wearing the red, white and green of the Mexican flag. Moreover, they did it in the context of a contentious national debate over illegal immigration from Mexico. In that context, on that date and in that place, the decision to wear those shirts was not innocent, but, rather, a calculated provocation. Assistant Principal Miguel Rodriguez, calling the shirts “incendiary” and fearing a fight, asked the students to either take the shirts off or turn them inside out. When several of the boys refused, he sent them home. Ironically, it is the decision itself that has proven incendiary. The school district disavows it and conservative critics have lambasted it as un-American. They’re right. At least, I think they are; the Supreme Court has been less than definitive in setting the boundaries of free speech for students. In 1969, it sided with three kids suspended from school for wearing black armbands in protest of the Vietnam War, ruling that they could not be prohibited from expressing their opinions if they did not interfere with the operation of the school or the rights of others. Subsequent courts have edged away from that affirmation of relatively unfettered rights, allowing schools to ban sexually

explicit student speech in one ruling, and speech that seems to promote illegal drug use in another. Still, it is hard to see this latest incident as anything but an abridgement of those students’ First Amendment OPINION rights – not to mention an act of glaring hypocrisy. By what Leonard reasoning does Rodriguez ban Pitts red, white and blue while per■■■ mitting red, white and green? All that said, though, neither of those complaints addresses what seems to me the most regrettable aspect of this affair. Namely, the fact that this educator missed a teachable moment. Imagine if Rodriguez had corralled the most articulate of the T-shirt boys and the Cinco de Mayo celebrators and required them to research and represent their points of view in a formal debate before the entire school. The T-shirt kid could have challenged his classmate to explain why he felt the need, if he is an American, to celebrate a foreign holiday. The classmate could have pressed the T-shirt kid on why he felt threatened by a simple acknowledgment of heritage and cultural origin. Maybe they reach an understanding, maybe they don’t. But in any event they learn a valuable lesson: that reasonable people reason their way through disagreements. And that the First Amendment confers not just a right to speak your piece, but an obligation to allow the other guy to do the same. Instead, Miguel Rodriguez taught the opposite lesson: that it is OK to ban the unpopular or provocative opinion. Few things could be less reflective of American ideals. See, there is no constitutional right to never be offended. Someone should explain that to the students of Live Oak High. And their assistant principal could stand a refresher course, too.

New craze hits elementary school H

Arizona law reverses America’s racial progress


was in graduate school in the 1990s. The debate in the English department was about multiculturalism. Was it better to teach the white male Shakespeare or the black woman Toni Morrison? Academe was considering other voices. Multiculturalism was a fresh movement. At the time, it seemed that nothing could surpass the white male’s viewpoint. Barack Obama’s election ushered in the real era of multiculturalism. It was finally OK to be an AfricanAmerican in power. All different races and creeds benefited from his rise to power. For the first time in history, diverse groups were no longer marginalized. Varied race was a good thing, showing Americans progress in the civil and human rights areas. I suggest that multiculturalism’s time is borrowed. White males in Western red states almost installed Obama in the White House. They gave him money in the primaries, thinking that he would be the weaker candidate against a Republican. They crossed over, making way for a black presidential candidate. Only he was not supposed to win, only be a thorn for Democrats.

The deeppocketed Republicans played a terrific role in electing Barack Obama to the OPINION presidency. They seem to Kristine regret their Kaiser efforts and ■■■ want their clout back. The backlash is beginning. Arizona’s new immigration law is an ominous portent for minorities; the law tells about the future of race relations in America. People of color are now suspects, presumed to be operating outside the law. They are thought to be rascals. People of color are out of the mainstream of American life; they are now returned to the margins. Arizona’s immigration law means the re-emergence of hegemony or white male dominance. On the surface, it is a way to deal with illegal immigrants, but its actual ramification spans race relations. The Arizona law is an opportunity for former abuses. The Arizona legislature also banned the teaching of ethnic studies in the public schools. Sarah Palin is touring the country and promot-

ing Arizona’s new law. She insists that the Tea Party activists do not need to fuss about “the political middle.� Palin assures her followers that “the middle will come to them� in the end. Really? That’s a big concern. A victorious Tea Party is cause to worry. Comprised of mostly upper-middle-class, white males, a winning Tea Party will set race relations back years. And we cannot imagine an America so committed to undermining multiculturalism and so intent on securing rights for one group. Tea Partiers are no longer harmless activists. They are too radical, increasingly slanted. They are also mainly Republican. While the GOP asserts the power of “no,� Sarah Palin goes on record for a highly controversial law and says that America will follow her lead. I say the time has come to question the Tea Party’s racial stances. Give no legitimacy when there is not a belief in equality for everyone. Let “the middle� not be swayed from bigotry. American race relations have come too far to turn back to lesser ways and past troubles. KRISTINE KAISER lives in Kernersville.

ave you heard about the latest craze to hit elementary schools across the country? Today’s kid fad is silicone bracelets called Silly Bandz. Sold in packs of 12 for about $3 and packs of 24 for about $6, they come in theme packs: animals, princesses, alphabet, dogs or sea creatures, just to name a few. They are popular with boys and girls alike, and kids stack them on their wrists and trade them. Some even glow in the dark! On a kid’s wrist, they look like brightly colored rubber bands, but laid on a table for inspection, they revert to their original shape. (Don’t ask me how. They just do.) Silly Bandz are a product of BCP (Brainchild Products) Imports of Birmingham, Ala., and were first marketed late last year. The interesting thing is that no advertising dollars have been spent on them. Word about Silly Bandz has spread exclusively by word of mouth and, of course, the Internet. There is a Facebook page with more than 83,000 fans and counting, and there is a whole genre of videos on YouTube in which kids show off their collections. Their appeal lies in their combination of being affordable, collectible and tradable. In fact, I saw BCP Imports and Silly Bandz owner, Robert Croak, on the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric just last week. He said the bands are the perfect “recession craze� because of their affordability. The idea for these silicone bracelets originated in China with shaped silicone office products. A handful of competing manufacturers are now making and marketing them as fast as young folks and their parents can scoop them up! It has only been in the last few weeks that I have noticed students wearing Silly Bandz around my elementary school. It really is so interesting how they can stretch around the wrist and then revert to their special shape. So this past Sunday was my second-grade granddaughter, Deanna’s, 8th birthday, and she asked if we could try to locate a pack of Silly Bandz for her. In case

you are looking, too, I can save you some time – no one in High Point has them right now. They are out of stock and on order at Walgreen’s, Barnes and Noble and LESSONS Christie’s Hallmark LEARNED shop at Oak Hollow Mall. Paula There is one locaWilliams tion, however, if you ■■■ are willing to drive a bit, where you can find more Silly Bandz than a whole elementary school could ever wear! That place is Toys & Co. at Friendly Center in Greensboro. Deanna and I took a Sunday afternoon drive there, and I could not believe it! There were shoulder-to-shoulder kids and their parents around rack after rack of Silly Bandz, all trying to find just the right ones! Deanna picked a pack with dogs and a pack with sea creatures, both of which glow in the dark! Deanna was thrilled with our purchase and excited to wear her new acquisition to school on Monday. When I called her Monday evening (I wanted to be sure she did not get into trouble with them, for one thing), she said that she traded three of hers to another girl for three that were multicolored. An April New York Times article on the Silly Bandz phenomena said that they have already been banned in some school districts which has only fueled the craze “like a five-gallon can of gasoline on a campfire.� Sean McGowan, an analyst who tracks the toy industry, said that in this high-tech era when children want iPods and iPads and Wii games, it’s refreshing to see something as simple as this get their attention. Like baseball cards or Beanie Babies of past years, the Silly Bandz craze will be fun while it lasts and not so expensive, either. Now where is the harm in that? Just keep them on your wrists, kids!

GUILFORD COUNTY – It could be a done deal. Although school district leaders appeared to win support Tuesday from the Guilford County Board of Commissioners on how to spend $34 million in federal stimulus bond funds, a final vote could come tonight. Last August, commissioners approved using at least the first $17.1 million installment to help pay off school construction projects on the 2008 bond list. School district leaders want to use the second $16.8 million 2010 allotment for maintenance and repairs. At a workshop Tuesday, the

Also included on the list are door, window and roof replacements at several schools. “We should get this money for repairs,” said Commissioner Bruce Davis of High Point. “We have so many needs,” said Commissioner Kirk Perkins. “The $4 million we give the school board each year is not adequate.” Commissioners Linda Shaw, Mike Winstead and Billy Yow also said they supported spending the 2010 allotment for repairs. “This is the better way to spend the money,” Yow said. | 888-3626

City to conduct water system maintenance BY DIANNA BELL ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – The city will be conducting routine maintenance on its water system over the next two weeks, and while there’s a possibility some residents may be affected, the impact should be minimal, according to the city’s public services director. Starting Monday and lasting through May 28, the city will be inspecting elevated water stor-

age tanks. In a release issued this week, city officials warned that some areas of the city may experience reduced water pressure or discolored water. “These cleanings and inspections are periodical and are a part of our routine and normal maintenance,” said Public Services Director Chris Thompson, adding that with the flushing and draining of the tanks, discolored water is a possibility. However, he doubts many residents will notice much change in water pressure or color.

The water storage tanks are being completely drained and refilled. Thompson said the pipes are not often used for that amount of water, and the pressure of the water created by the draining and refilling could cause the discoloration. He said that the quality of the water is fine, adding that the city’s high-service pumps should help ensure the upkeep of water pressure in households during the maintenance. Thompson added that “residents shouldn’t see


the effects of the maintenance; the elevated storage tanks are mainly used to supply fire stations.” The Lexington tank at Centennial and Hamilton streets is being tested this week. Next week, the Ward tank on Prospect Street will see the same maintenance. Residents who experience reduced water pressure or discolored water are asked to report the problems by calling (336) 888-3111. | 888-3537

Inventor of cash machine dies at 84 in Scotland LONDON (AP) – John Shepherd-Barron, the Scotsman credited with inventing the world’s first automatic cash machine, has died after a short illness. He was 84. Shepherd-Barron died peacefully in northern Scotland’s Raigmore Hospital on Saturday, funeral director Alasdair Rhind said Wednesday. Shepherd-Barron once said that he came up with the idea of the cash dispensers after being locked out of his bank. He also said that his invention was inspired by chocolate vending machines. “It struck me there must be a way I could get my own money, anywhere in the world or the U.K.,” he said in an

Former rival Lewis endorses Marshall in Senate bid RALEIGH (AP) – Former U.S. Senate candidate Ken Lewis on Wednesday endorsed campaign rival Elaine Marshall in her runoff for the Democratic nomination in North Carolina and chided the party’s leadership for meddling in the process. Lewis said he was particularly impressed with the conviction and courage shown by Marshall, North Carolina’s secretary of state, even as Democratic officials in Washington put their support behind the other remaining candidate, Cal Cunningham. He praised Marshall for her ability to organize grass roots support and to appeal to a broad range of voters. “I believe that to win this fall, Democrats will have to do both,” Lewis said, as Marshall and her supporters stood nearby. “And Secretary Marshall provides us with a demonstrably stronger opportunity to do just that.” The endorsement provides a key push for Marshall, who didn’t win enough votes earlier this month to oust Cunningham. They now face a June 22 runoff. Lewis finished third, carrying 17 percent of voters. The Chapel Hill attorney spent much of his

campaign casting himself as a political rookie who would be the best agent for change. Though largely cordial during the primary campaign, he pushed that message as a way to distance himself from Cunningham and Marshall. “We can’t change a broken Senate simply by sending career politicians to Washington,” Lewis said during a March forum. Lewis said during Wednesday’s news conference that he has since had more conversations with Marshall and believes she will be able to lead in Washington. He continued to pound on a message of insider politics by questioning the role the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee played in recruiting Cunningham instead of letting North Carolina voters choose a candidate, declaring that they had been “trying to exercise undue influence in our nominating process.” Lewis said there is a view among some voters that a candidate needs to be anointed by the committee. “That is moving the perception of power from the people to Washington insiders,” Lewis said in an interview. “I’m concerned about that.”

interview with the BBC in 2007. “I hit upon the idea of a chocolate bar dispenser, but replacing chocolate with cash.” The first automatic teller machine, now known as ATMs, was installed at a branch of Barclays Plc in a north London suburb on June 27, 1967. Plastic bank cards had not been invented yet, so Shepherd-Barron’s machine used special checks that were chemically coded. Customers placed the checks in a drawer, and after entering a personal identification number, a second drawer would spring open with a 10 pound note. Shepherd-Barron originally planned to make personal identification numbers six

digits long, but cut the number to four after his wife Caroline complained that six was too many. “Over the kitchen table, she said she could only remember four figures, so because of her, four figures became the world standard,” he told the BBC. There are now more than 1.7 million ATMs across the globe, according to the ATM Industry Association. Shepherd-Barron was awarded an Officers of the Order of the British Empire, or OBE, for his services to banking in 2004 — 40 years after his invention. He was survived by his wife, three sons and six grandchildren, Rhind said in a death notice in The Scotsman newspaper.

Sales tax agreement under consideration BY DAVID NIVENS ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

GUILFORD COUNTY – County officials will consider tonight an agreement aimed at reclaiming construction sales taxes on school projects. North Carolina is one of only six states requiring school districts to pay a state sales tax on most purchases. The sales tax also applies to construction projects. State law allows counties to claim a refund of



Agreement: The so-called interlocal agreement would deed all school property to the schools, which would immediately lease it back to the county. New schools would be added through a lease addition. Taxes: The combined state and local sales tax is 7.75 percent in Guilford County. The state portion is as much as 5.75 percent.

any sales taxes on materials and other goods that go into building projects. School districts shared that status until 2005,

when the General Assembly took it away. The proposal under consideration by the Guilford County Board of Commis-

sioners would allow the school district to own the schools but lease the property to the county, which now owns it. The schools would be the agent for the county for school construction, and award all school construction contracts on the county’s behalf. Guilford County Board of Education Chairman Alan Duncan told the school board earlier this month that the N. C. Department of Revenue has ruled that if a school board leases property to the county, and

the county then returns to the district authorization to construct a building on that property, the county could reclaim the state sales tax. “We have had to pay millions in sales taxes though the years,� Duncan said. Durham County officials approved a similar agreement this year. In other business, commissioners probably will accept a $7.4 million bid from Greensboro Auto Auction for the 29-acre

Evergreens Senior Health Care property on Wendover Avenue adjoining the company’s 232-acre site. The item is listed on a consent agenda. The county put the property on the market after the managing residential health care providers decided to move their clients to new sites. GAA offered the appraised property value, and there were no reported upset bids. | 888-3626

Former mayor, ex-governor’s aide visit courthouse

Mike Easley’s hometown and Easley’s one-time aide visited the federal courthouse where a grand jury interested in activities surrounding North Carolina’s former chief executive was scheduled to meet. Multiple media reports said former Southport Mayor Norman Holden entered the courthouse Wednesday morning. He declined to comment when leaving in the afternoon.

Friendships met halfway can survive separation


ear Abby: I can empathize with “Deeply Hurt in Arizona� (March 16), who travels back to her hometown to see her large extended family and struggles to make time for her longtime friend “Judith,� who nonetheless feels slighted. My husband and I grew up in the Northeast but now live out of state. We have flown hundreds of miles with our children to visit our families back there. Once we arrived, it seemed we were expected to continue traveling from town to town to do all the visiting. It became very stressful. These people made little effort to visit us in our state or even come to our “base� while we were in their area. While “Hurt� visits her elderly parents, Judith appears to be sitting around waiting for her and making little effort. Why doesn’t Judith go to the parents’ home? Or, better yet, have a girls’ weekend in Arizona or somewhere in between? We have gotten past our irritation with family and friends and do two things: 1. We tell people in advance when we’re coming so they can make plans. Groups – especially friends – can double up, and see us and see each other. 2. We use our time the way we want and not the way we feel we are obligated to. “Hurt� should urge Judith to try to come to her. The road goes both ways. – Worked It Out In Alpharetta, Ga. Dear Worked It Out: Thank you for writing. The scenario in “Hurt’s� letter hit a nerve with a

number of readers. Read on: Dear Abby: When my kids visit ADVICE from out of state, I have Dear an open Abby house so the ■■■ family can come to one place and spend time with them. This gives my kids more time to visit with me and any special friends they may want to see. It also lessens the guilt of not being able to see everyone. This has worked well for us, and now the family expects me to do it every time the kids come back. – Diana in Ohio Dear Abby: I agree that Judith is selfish and immature. I have friends all over the U.S., and when they come to visit, I understand that most of their time will be spent with family. Judith needs to grow up and realize that not everything revolves around her. Instead of complaining about the lack of time “Hurt� has for her, Judith should make the most of the time she does get to spend. – Shellie in Indiana Dear Abby: There may be a crisis in Judith’s life that she is displacing onto “Hurt.� When the emotions around that crisis calm, she will need her old friend. Is there anyone in town who could find out what is going on? I knew a woman who cut everyone out of her life in a rage after the betrayal of an assault by a loved one. Another

person did the same thing after a cancer diagnosis. Once the shock faded and they began to deal with their issues, they confided in their old friends about what was really happening and were able to reconnect. – Susan in Centerville, Ohio Dear Abby: Our family moved two hours away to make a better life for our kids. With a newborn in tow, we spent the entire first summer traveling home to visit family and friends. My best friend came to see us once in the first year after our move. Recently she told me that because I moved away, we no longer have anything in common and that “maybe we would cross paths again – someday.� It hit me like a ton of bricks, but I have chosen to move on. If our paths were meant to cross again, they would not have split in the first place. – Angela in Washington State Dear Abby: Was the only time Judith heard from “Hurt� when she had a few precious moments for Judith? If one person has to do all the communicating, perhaps it isn’t a true friendship – and that is what Judith was trying to say. The art of communication and caring is dying. Hey folks: Friendship is a two-way street. – Been There, Too, in Pennsylvania DEAR ABBY is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Lawmakers push small businesses with tax breaks RALEIGH (AP) – North Carolina legislators desperate to show they’re doing all they can to boost job creation are offering small businesses new tax breaks and other help to try to stimulate new hiring. “We need to do everything we can to create jobs,� said Rep. Bill Owens, D-Pasquotank. “We can’t do enough this year to create jobs.� A state House committee on Wednesday approved what its sponsor, House Majority Leader Hugh Holliman, called the General Assembly’s first broad attempt to juice job creation by small businesses. The package could cost the state about $80 million over three years, after which the job-creation tax credits expire, according to estimates by legislative fiscal analysts. The plan would allow businesses with 25 fulltime employees or fewer to take a $1,000 tax credit for every job created and kept for three years. Businesses also could get a $250 tax break to help pay the health benefits of each employee earning less than $40,000. The legislation would expand a tax break for investors in small businesses. Lawmakers also would devote $2.9 million next year to three state programs that provide loans to small companies in rural areas, provide confidential business coaching, and make it easier to get federal technology grants.

Holden used to serve as a liaison between the Department of Transportation and southeastern counties when Easley was governor. A federal subpoena sent to DOT asked for documents related to his employment arrangement. The subpoena said the grand jury was meeting Wednesday through Friday. The News & Observer of Raleigh also reported former Easley adviser Susan Rabon visited the courthouse and left with her attorney without comment.

I will concede that the 100mile ultra-marathons might have been a little much, but how often do you get the opportunity to meet at 3 a.m. a magnificent buck, transfixed on a forest trail bathed in moonlight and pondering the sweaty fool running toward him? Of course, the physical decline has been humbling, as I have gone from a very selfsufficient fellow to a bow-legged arthritic who now struggles to walk from his car to the office. It has also given me a sobering glimpse of the future and a new appreciation for Jack Slaneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s admonition that â&#x20AC;&#x153;Getting old is not for sissies.â&#x20AC;? Most of all, this experience has underscored the reality that very few things in life last forever. Our stay on this earth is short; our years are absolutely finite, and yet it is reassuring to know that there are some things that do last forever, such as our faith, the love of family and friends, timeless institutions such as High Point University and the Community Foundation and that which we leave behind for others. I believe we all want to leave a footprint behind, something that shows we were here, that we loved, dreamed, strived and cared enough to make our world a little better than we found it. What we give today can indeed last forever by creating a ripple that carries over the years and perhaps changes a life or two along the way, which I think is a fine way to be remembered.

It’s higher in the earlymorning hours after waking. It’s lower in the evening and during sleep. You can take your blood pressure at any other time of day, but be consistent with the time. It’s important to follow these rules to get an accurate reading. Don’t drink any caffeinated beverages or smoke for at least 30 minutes before taking your pressure. Sit quietly in a chair for five minutes with your feet flat on the floor. You can read or listen to music. The arm on which you take your pressure should be supported and be at heart level. You can rest it on a table or some other piece of furniture. Take two recordings, with a slight break between the two. Average the two readings. Taking your pressure once a day is enough. DR.

New York’s faces: ‘Law & Order’ showed ’em all MELISSA RAYWORTH FOR THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Since television was born, TV shows have been set in New York City. From “The Honeymooners” all the way to “30 Rock,” generations of New Yorkers have grown up seeing their hometown used as a backdrop, or even a central character, in everything from comedies and cartoons to edgy dramas. Some shows depict a New York that simply doesn’t exist (try and find two struggling Manhattan twentysomethings with a “Friends”-sized apartment). Others offer a window into slivers of New York life: Fashionobsessed women really do sip cocktails in trendy bars, just like on “Sex and the City.” But most TV fare offers up a mere sliver of New York City. For two decades, until it was canceled Friday, NBC’s “Law & Order” did something different. It showed the world not just one New York but hundreds. We saw wealthy criminals who could afford to get away with their felonies. We saw immigrant communities, middle-class families and people of all stripes struggling, sometimes stumbling through their day. We saw Manhattan and the far boroughs. We saw New Yorkers who didn’t care enough to report crimes and people who risked their lives to save strangers. Made in New York by people who lived there, “Law & Order” never trafficked in Gotham cliches. “A New York City insti-


Actor Sam Waterston as District Attorney Jack McCoy in a scene from an episode of “Law and Order.” tution,” Mayor Michael Bloomberg called the show Friday. He praised producer Dick Wolf for “helping showcase the city’s depth and versatility.” Many New Yorkers would agree. They made room for “Law & Order” in their lives. And the show’s unique structure, partnering gritty police drama with high-stakes legal scheming, made room for the entire city in return – and employed a whole lot of its people. If your neighbor or cousin or favorite bartender was an actor, chances are at some point they turned up on “Law & Order.” The show hired actors for as many as 700 speaking roles each season; that’s 14,000 roles over its tenure. Lorraine Rodriguez, a theater actress and

native New Yorker, grew up watching the show. She earned her Screen Actors Guild card appearing on “The Sopranos,” but “Law & Order” was always her goal. She auditioned four times for “day player” roles on the show but had yet to land one when she heard it had been canceled. “The first thing my dad said when I started acting was, ‘When are you gonna be on Law & Order?’ ” Rodriguez says. “It’s a big deal when they call you in.” “Other shows aren’t like that,” she says. “They brought in the ‘The Good Wife’ to shoot here, but that’s set in Chicago. ... You audition and they say, ‘Do you have a Chicago accent?’ But with Law & Order, you felt like you can be you if you’re from New York.”


The cast of “The Honeymooners” (from left), Jackie Gleason, Audrey Meadows, Art Carney and Joyce Randolph, appear in character as Ralph and Alice Kramden and Ed and Trixie Norton.

Wolf’s long-running procedural, of course, wasn’t the first show to feature the NYPD and the lawyers who help them put bad guys behind bars. Across genres, and with varying degrees of authenticity, the territory was staked out by “Naked City,” “Car 54, Where Are You?,” “Kojak,” “Barney Miller,” “Cagney & Lacey” and “Life on Mars.” And along with “NYPD Blue,” “New York Undercover,” “Third Watch,” “CSI: NY” and spinoffs “Law & Order: SVU” and “Law & Order: Criminal Intent,” there will be plenty more to come. But this one belonged to New York like no other. When New Yorkers stumble across a film shoot in progress, it often brings more inconvenience than excitement. Sure, you may see a famous face or two. But odds are the sidewalks will be cordoned off, the film crew will have taken all the parking spaces and harried production assistants will bark at you to keep your distance. Not so “Law & Order.” For two decades, an epoch in television time, the show quietly and seamlessly shot scene after scene on the streets of the city. A mutual respect developed: They didn’t close your block, and you didn’t stare at the camera or the actors as you walked through a shot on your way home. With so many scenes shot outdoors, details of New Yorkers’ lives, from the breakfast bagel cart to the subway station, were forever popping up on the

show. That’s part of what gave it street cred for actors – and for agents and casting people, who saw it as a crucial stepping stone. “It’s always been a barometer to find out if you were going to have some sort of credibility as an actor in New York,” says Henry Ravelo, an acting teacher and theatrical manager. “At a certain point, casting directors and agents and managers look at your resume and see if you have a ‘Law & Order’ on your resume. If an actor doesn’t, then they’ve got to ask themselves, ‘What am I doing in New York?’” In production for much of the year, the show also employed a steady flow of extras and stand-ins for every episode. For fledgling SAG members, that meant a few hundred dollars toward the rent and a chance to get familiar with life on the set of a major network series. With “Law & Order” closing up shop, its new spinoff being shot in Los Angeles and soap operas folding or leaving town, young New York City actors are wondering where the breaks will come. “All My Children,” produced in New York for nearly 40 years, moved to LA in December, shortly after “Guiding Light” bit the dust. Even Woody Allen has left town, preferring London as a backdrop over his native New York in recent years. That gives the departure of “Law & Order” all the more sting. “A show like this was a gift,” says Marc Isaacmann, who founded a service called “One on One” that introduces actors to the city’s casting directors. “’Law & Order’ launched so many careers. ... We were spoiled.” Murray Pomerance, writing in the preface to “City that Never Sleeps: New York and the Filmic Imagination,” says typical New Yorkers stick to their block and their neighborhood. “For the tourist, each moment in New York is, at least potentially, a sparkling treasure, an immensity of experience; for the New Yorker, there is a comforting mundanity to everyday life, a predictability and a delicious smallness.” It was that “delicious smallness,” in the context of epic stories of good and evil, that “Law & Order” did so well.

CBS and fans of “Two and a Half Men” don’t have to fret about subtracting Charlie Sheen from TV’s top-rated sitcom. Sheen has agreed to a new contract that will keep him on the show for two more seasons, spokesman Stan Rosenfield said Monday evening after the deal was reached. “To put a fitting end on the 21⁄2 months of whirlwind speculation, I’m looking forward to returning to my CBS home on Monday nights,” Sheen, 44, said in a statement, adding his thanks to CBS Corp. Chief Executive Leslie Moonves for his support. Uncertainty had clouded Sheen’s future with the series after he told friends that he wanted to leave after seven years because he’d tired of its production demands and wanted to focus on movies. He’s in the upcoming film “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps,” a sequel to the 1987 “Wall Street” in which he starred. Subsequent reports said that he was holding out for a payday of up to $2 million per sitcom episode. CBS and Sheen had declined comment on the reports, and Sheen’s statement did not provide details of the new agreement.

Some people grin and bear it; others smile and do something about it. Today’s declarer won the second diamond and saw no problem if he could pick up the trumps. If West had J-x-x-x, South would go down, but if East had that holding, South might succeed with a trump coup. Since South wasn’t the type to grin and bear a bad trump break, he led a heart to the ace and ruffed a heart. He then took the A-K of trumps.

TRUMP LENGTH When West discarded, South smiled to himself. He ruffed a heart to reduce his trump length to East’s, took the king of clubs, led a club to the jack and continued with the king of hearts. If East could have ruffed, South would overruff, draw trumps and claim. But when East followed, South pitched his ace of clubs and led dummy’s queen. East couldn’t afford to ruff, and South threw his last diamond. At Trick 12, with dummy to lead, South had the Q-10 of trumps behind East’s J-7. South fails unless he shortens his trumps by ruffing a heart early.

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.

Fox reveals stable new fall schedule DAVID BAUDER AP TELEVISION WRITER

NEW YORK – Fox is changing the “American Idol” format after it sagged in the ratings, giving a supersized push to “Glee” and focusing on comedy heading into the next television season. The network released its schedule Monday. Its executives conceded the biggest new drama, a Steven Spielberg adventure series, might not even be ready for next season. Fox is the second of the broadcast networks to release its upcoming schedule. Despite “Idol” dropping an estimated 9 percent in young viewership this season, the network minted a new hit in “Glee” and will be the first network to win the season six years in a row among the 18-to-49year-old demographic it seeks. Fox still hasn’t answered its most compelling mystery for next season: Who will replace Simon Cowell when he leaves “American Idol” this month? That search is top priority for Fox this summer, said Peter Rice, entertainment chairman of the Fox Networks Group.

“We have to find a judge to replace Simon who provides both musical credibility and an incredible entertainment value,” Rice said. “Anytime you have a change, it’s something you have to do right.” In response to viewer requests for more performances, Fox will increase the Tuesday night competition show from an hour to 90 minutes. The Wednesday results show will be chopped in half to 30 minutes, Fox executives said. Despite the ratings slide, “American Idol” continues as the nation’s most popular TV show. Fox is giving extra attention to “Glee” in its second season, even though fans will get a scheduling challenge. A special episode of the show will get the prime post-Super Bowl time slot next season. The show will air Tuesdays at 8 p.m. in the fall, ahead of two new comedies. After the Super Bowl, it will switch to Wednesdays at 9 p.m., following the “American Idol” results show. The first new Tuesday comedy is “Raising Hope,” about a 23-year pool cleaner who suddenly has to raise his baby. Sitcom veteran

Cloris Leachman appears in the character’s family. “Running Wilde” has star power, with Will Arnett portraying a playboy trying to woo his high school sweetheart, played by Keri Russell. Spielberg’s “Terra Nova” is an epic that follows a family from 2149 as it goes back to prehistoric times trying to save the Earth. It hasn’t been given a slot on the schedule yet, however. “What we want to do is commit to do it right,” said Kevin Reilly, Fox network entertainment president. Besides the two comedies, the only other new series Fox is introducing in the fall is “Lonestar,” a prime time soap about a Texas family with feet in both the working class and high finance worlds. On four of the seven nights, Fox’s prime time schedule this fall will be the same as it is this season. Later in the year, Fox will introduce an animated series called “Bob’s Burgers”; a comedy called “Mixed Signals” about three friends trying to balance relationships with the need for freedom; and “Ride-Along,” a cop series set in Chicago.

Vickers remains in park


CHARLOTTE (AP) — Casey Mears will fill in for Brian Vickers during Saturday’s Sprint Cup All-Star race at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Red Bull Racing says Mears will drive the No. 83 Toyota for Vickers, who is undergoing treatment for blood clots in his legs and near his lungs. Mears finished 22nd while subbing for Vickers last weekend at Dover. NASCAR granted Red Bull’s request to switch drivers for the race. Red Bull said Tuesday that Vickers has responded well to treatment but has not issued a timetable for when the 26-year-old can return to racing. Vickers and Red Bull Racing general manager Jay Frye will meet with the media on Friday at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Elsewhere, NASCAR placed Clint Bowyer on probation until June 16 for spinning Denny Hamlin in a retaliatory move during a caution period late in Saturday’s Nationwide race at Dover.


First-round action

snub motivates Jeffreys


ee Jeffreys wants to make sure everyone knows he’s not upset at the five drivers who were featured in the television show Madhouse this winter and spring. He and the other Modified drivers just want to make it clear that they felt slighted by the show, which followed the exploits of brothers Burt and Jason Myers, Junior Miller, Tim Brown and Chris Fleming during last season at Bowman Gray Stadium. “I’m not mad at anybody,” Jeffreys said. “We want to show that there’s more than those five drivers at Bowman Gray. The thing that the rest of us didn’t like is that even if you won a race last year you barely got any mention if you weren’t one of those five. I won a race and they spelled my name wrong. I guess you could say it is giving us incentive this year.” Jeffreys, of Wallburg, is showing how much incentive. He led and finished second in the 200-lap season opener May 1, finished sixth in the 100-lap race May 8 and got his first win of the season by leading all of a 25-lap feature Saturday before rain washed out a second race. “We’re not trying any harder,” Jeffreys said. “I don’t think the car is any stronger than last year. We’ve just had better luck so far.” Thanks to the strong start, Jeffreys is tied with Brown for second in points, just one behind leader Burt Myers. Despite the early surge,

SPORTS Greer Smith ■■■

Jeffreys isn’t thinking about winning his first championship. “It’s way too early for that,” Jeffreys said. “All I want to do is run up front and win. You’ve got to have a lot of luck to win a championship and I haven’t had much the past couple of years. If there was a wreck, I was usually

in it.” The show has helped give Jeffreys incentive in another way. The notoriety generated by the show is attracting drivers to the point that the Modified division had more than enough cars to fill its 24-car fields each week. The 17,000-seat arena has also enjoyed large crowds each week, drawing spectators from across the country. “Drivers want to go where there are the largest crowds, and there aren’t any larger than the ones at Bowman Gray around here,” Jeffreys said. “And when you have full fields, it means more if you win.” A 50-lap Modified race is on tap Saturday.

CARAWAY RECAP Jason York crept closer to leader Travis Swaim in Caraway Speedway’s late model standings last Saturday. York picked up his third vic-

tory of the year and moved within two points of Swaim, who finished fourth in the 150-lap race. Ryan Wilson came in second and moved into third in points, 28 behind Swaim. Corey Strickland was third, Junior Kendrick of Thomasville prevailed in the Sportsman race with former High Point resident Paul Wark second. Kendrick holds an 18-point lead over Ross Dalton. Scottie York leads Glenn Chriscoe Jr. by 10 in Late Model Super Truck. York finished third and Chriscoe eighth in a race won by Jason Poole. Richard Jones is 20 points ahead of Andrew Schill in U-Car. Perry Hanes is eight ahead of Darrin Free in Pure Stock. On Friday night, Mack Little III swept a pair of 30-lap Sportsman races that had Jimmy Wallace, Wayne Hill and Kirk Sheets as the rest of the order in a four-car field. Little is 146 points ahead of Hill. Wallace was first and Teri MacDonald second as the only contestants in a Late Model Super Truck race. Scott Hensley prevailed in the Legends Car race. Gary Ledbetter was the Street Stock winner, and John Davis got his first Mini-Stock victory. Caraway is idle Saturday, continuing the tradition of avoiding conflict with the All-Star race at Lowe’s Motor Speedway. | 888-3519

Pagan pulls TV rare double L




Glenn shortstop Megan Mabe applies tag, thwarting the attempt of Dudley’s Ashley Malachi to steal second during a first-round game in the NCHSAA 4A softball playoffs Wednesday. Details on 4D.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Angel Pagan was having a most unusual evening, and that’s a good thing for the New York Mets. Pagan hit the first inside-the-park home run in Nationals Park history, then started the Mets’ first triple play since 2002. Pagan’s homer in the fourth inning Wednesday came in Washington’s third season at its ballpark. The Nationals put runners on first and second with no outs in the fifth. Cristian Guzman hit a sinking liner and Pagan rushed in to make a shoestring catch in center field. The runners kept going and Pagan threw home, just in case. Catcher Henry Blanco tossed the ball to shortstop Jose Reyes at second base, and he replayed to first baseman Ike Davis to complete the Mets’ 10th triple play.


s expansion talk heats up, I’m starting to wonder just how big the Big Ten will get. The conference coaches and administrators gathered in Chicago for three days of meetings that concluded on Wednesday, and possible expansion figured to be tops on the agenda. It’s all speculation right now, but the Big Ten’s potential targets include Missouri, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Rutgers, Texas, Syracuse, Pittsburgh and Maryland.

So, will it become the Really Big 14 or the Super Big 18 or something in between? And of course, leagues such as the Big East, Big 12, Pac-10, SEC and ACC figure to change shape as well. I understand it all boils down to money. Such is life in 21st-century college athletics. But for a traditionalist like me, conference expansion is a touchy subject. It took me 30 years to adjust to the ACC without South Carolina. I still refer to the Southwest Conference

from time to time, and I long for the days of the Big Eight. But those leagues are gone with the wind, and we may as well get ready to learn new league configurations in the coming months. It’s likely these new mega-conferences will stretch the limits of geographical logic. But the mega-millions of dollars they’ll generate will be easy enough to understand.



Chi Chi Rodriguez was robbed inside his home Wednesday by three assailants who stole cash and jewelry worth $500,000, police said. Masked men woke Rodriguez and his wife around 1:45 a.m. and tied them up inside their apartment at the Legado Golf Resort the south coast town of Guayama, said Maria Morales, the golfer’s publicist. She said the couple was not injured. “They are a little shaken up but they are fine,” Morales said. “He is still in shock because they were asleep at the time.” Morales said Rodriguez was talking with investigators. The 74-year-old golfer, known for his showmanship and victory dances, is the winner of eight PGA tournaments and has 22 senior tour victories.

With the Cowgirls having to force the issue offensively early in the second half, Butler converted again 10 minutes after the break and took control with two more goals down the stretch. Southwest spoiled the shutout in the closing seconds when Michelle Casserman sent home a free kick from 30 yards out. Upstart Southwest, which reached the third round with two shutouts, closed the season 10-13. Top-seed Butler (13-5-1) of the Southwestern Conference advanced to face Wednesday’s Grimsley-East Forsyth winner.

Mortgage crisis hinders recovery WASHINGTON (AP) — The mortgage crisis is dragging on the economic recovery as more homeowners fall behind on their payments. Analysts expect improvement soon, but the number of homeowners in default or at risk of foreclosure will have a lingering effect on the broader economy. More than 10 percent of homeowners had missed at least one mortgage payment in the JanuaryMarch period, the Mortgage Bankers Association said Wednesday. That’s a record high and up from 9.5 percent in the fourth quarter of last year and 9.1 percent a year earlier.



Washington Mutual hearing delayed WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — A bankruptcy judge has postponed a hearing to consider approving the disclosure statement that outlines Washington Mutual Inc.’s proposed reorganization plan. The judge in Delaware continued Wednesday’s hearing until June 3 to allow parties in the case more time to review what Washington Mutual says about its Chapter 11 reorganization plan.

Oil prices continue three-week slide NEW YORK (AP) — Oil prices continued a three-week slide Wednesday, as U.S. petroleum stockpiles grew and Europe’s financial troubles shook confidence in the world economy. Benchmark crude for June delivery dropped $1.19 to $68.22 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

UPS to furlough 54 pilots, cut costs ATLANTA (AP) — Shipping giant UPS, which said just last month that the improving economy helped boost its first-quarter profit and its outlook for the year, is preparing to furlough dozens of pilots for the first time ever as part of a long-anticipated cost-cutting move. The company, which has 2,819 pilots, said it simply has more pilots than it needs. It says it tried, but failed, to reach a deal with the pilots union on enough concessions that would have averted the need for furloughs.


Around 4.3 million homeowners, or about 8 percent of all Americans with a mortgage, are at risk of losing their homes. They have either missed at least three months of payments or are in foreclosure, the trade group’s top economist said Wednesday. Should loan modification programs fail to help, their homes will go up for sale either as a foreclosure or short sale — when the bank agrees to sell the property for less than the original mortgage amount. Many analysts have been forecasting home prices will dip again as more of these homes go

up for sale at deeply discounted prices. “It’s certainly a weight on the economy,” said Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Analytics, who predicts home prices will fall about 5 percent and hit the bottom next spring. “Nothing works all that well in the economy when house prices are falling.” Federal tax credits boosted home sales this spring but they expired last month. As a result, mortgage applications to purchase homes fell to the lowest level in 13 years this week, the Mortgage Bankers Association said in a separate report Wednesday.

Consumer inflation vanishes WASHINGTON (AP) — Consumer prices fell in April for the first time in 13 months, giving the Federal Reserve more room to keep interest rates at historic lows to aid the economy. That’s good news for borrowers, but not for savers. Record-low rates help borrowers who qualify for loans and want to take on more debt. The prime lending rate, used to set rates on some credit cards and consumer loans, is at its lowest point in decades. But low rates hurt savers. They’re especially hard for people on fixed incomes who earn scant returns on their savings. The 0.1 percent decrease in overall prices last month was pulled down by gas prices, which are

expected to drop further this summer. Core inflation, which excludes volatile food and energy prices, was flat in April, according to the Labor Department report Wednesday. Over the past 12 months, core inflation has risen just 0.9 percent — the smallest increase in 44 years. The recession in 2007 and 2008 has kept inflation so low that some economists worry about the possibility of deflation — a destabilizing period of falling prices and wages. “With the unemployment rate so close to 10 percent, it is entirely understandable that the Fed wants to stick with its commitment to leave rates at near-zero,” said Paul Ashworth, senior U.S. economist at Capital Economics.

Deere profit rises on improving sales NEW YORK (AP) — Deere & Co. said Wednesday that its second-quarter profit jumped 16 percent as sales of farm and construction equipment improved, so the maker of iconic green and yellow machinery raised its outlook for the second time this year. The Moline, Ill.-based company said it generated $547.5 million in net income, or $1.28 per share, in the quarter that ended April 30. That’s up from net income of $472.3 million, or $1.11 per share, a year earlier. Excluding a charge related to health care leg-

islation, profit was $1.58 per share. Deere’s revenue grew 6 percent to $7.13 billion, from $6.75 billion, in the same period last year. Part of that increase came from price increases and favorable currency exchange rates, but sales of large tractors and combines have improved and construction equipment sales are starting to rebound from historic lows as the economy recovers. The results topped analysts expectations of net income of $1.09 per share on $6.6 billion revenue. Deere stock jumped $1.66, or 2.9 percent, to $58.82.

Stocks slump on Europe woes NEW YORK (AP) — Another wave of selling hit stocks Wednesday in response to growing fears that Europe has no quick fix for its debt crisis. The Dow Jones industrial average fell about 67 points after having been down as much as 186. It was the Dow’s ninth drop in 12 days. The extent of investors’ worries became clear after the euro bounced off a four-year low but stocks still fell. The euro has been driving stock trading for weeks. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index, widely considered one of the best measures of how the stock market is doing, neared a 10 percent drop from the 2010 trading high it reached last month. That would mark the first time the market has had what’s known as a “correction” since it bounced off a 12year low in March last year. Most analysts say a correction is a drop of at least 10 percent. The latest worry came from Germany, where regulators banned what’s called naked short selling. That occurs when traders bet against investments they don’t hold. The rule covers European government bonds, credit default swaps and the shares of several financial companies. The Dow fell 66.58, or 0.6 percent, to 10,444.37 after dropping 115 on Tuesday. The S&P 500 index fell 5.75, or 0.5 percent, to 1,115.05. The Nasdaq composite index fell 18.89, or 0.8 percent, to 2,298.37.

Europe continues attacks on speculators LONDON (AP) — European leaders are stepping up their attack on what they characterize as greedy and ruthless speculators, accusing them of worsening the continent’s government debt crisis. But analysts say some of the measures they are taking could backfire by undermining the euro instead of supporting it. In the space of a few hours on Tuesday, EU governments overrode British objections and U.S. worries to tighten rules for hedge funds, and Germany’s securities regulator unilaterally announced curbs on traders of government debt and bank stocks. The unexpected decision by Germany to ban so-called naked short-sell-

ing of eurozone government bonds, as well as shares in ten key German financial institutions until March 31, sent shockwaves through the markets Wednesday. Europe’s main stock markets all closed around 3 percent lower Wednesday after the euro sank to a four-year low against the dollar. “While politicians are still trying to blame speculators for the fall in the euro, it’s the market’s loss in confidence in these politicians’ ability to implement the austerity measures needed domestically that is at the root of its decline in value,” said Mark O’Sullivan, director of dealing at foreign exchange firm Currencies Direct.

Novartis hit with damage award NEW YORK (AP) — A jury that found drug company Novartis discriminated against women by paying them less than men, promoting fewer of them and allowing a hostile workplace awarded $250 million in punitive damages on Wednesday. The same jury concluded Monday that Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corp. had discriminated against its female employees since 2002, and it awarded $3.3 million to a

dozen women whose stories were outlined during the sixweek trial. Attorneys for Novartis declined to comment. The company has said it would appeal. The plaintiffs’ attorney, David Sanford, said the findings “sent a message to Novartis and all other corporations in America that they cannot continue to get away with the discrimination and the systemic problems that have gone on for so long. “



Dodd backs off derivatives proposal WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. Christopher Dodd has decided not to seek a compromise on a contentious provision in the Senate’s sweeping financial regulation bill. Dodd, the chairman of the Senate Banking Committee, will not seek to delay a requirement in the bill that banks spin off their lucrative business in complex securities known as derivatives Dodd on Tuesday floated a proposal that would have put off the requirement for two years. That requirement is in underlying legislation pending in the Senate to impose new rules on Wall Street. AP

Target’s net income climbs NEW YORK (AP) — Target Corp. reported a 29 percent increase in first-quarter net income, fueled by an improvement in its credit-card business and higher sales of more profitable items such as clothing. Chairman and CEO Gregg Steinhafel said the results came in a “stronger-than-expected economic environment.” The discounter, based in Minneapolis, reported net income of $671 million, or 90 cents per share, for the period ended May 1. That compares with $522 million,

or 69 cents per share, in the year-ago period. Analysts surveyed by Thomson Reuters had expected 86 cents a share. Target said its total revenue rose 5 percent to $15.59 billion, a a shade ahead of Wall Street expectations. Target’s revenue at stores open at least a year rose 2.8 percent for the first quarter. The measure is a key indicator of a retailer’s health because it excludes the effect of expansion. In a statement, Steinhafel noted that the retail segment beat expectations as sales of discre-

tionary items with high profit margins such as clothing were particularly strong. Target’s gross profit margin increased to 31.3 percent in the first quarter, up from 30.8 percent in the year-ago period. Steinhafel also noted that profitability in its credit card segment also was well above expectations. Target’s sales results were in sharp contrast with Wal-Mart, which reported on Tuesday that its key measure of revenue fell for the fourth consecutive quarter.

Treasury announces Wells Fargo auction WASHINGTON (AP) — The government says it will auction 110.3 million warrants it received from Wells Fargo & Co. as part of its effort to recoup the costs of the $700 billion financial bailout. The Treasury Department said the auction of the Wells Fargo warrants will take place on Thursday. It set a minimum bid price of $6.50 per warrant. A warrant gives the purchaser the right to buy common stock at a fixed price. Financial institutions have been eager to cut ties to the TARP bailout program to escape various restrictions imposed on banks receiving support.
