Workers with Traffic Control Devices from Salisbury string traffic signals for the Deep River Road extension along Eastchester Drive.


New intersection may be ready by fall BY PAUL B. JOHNSON ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – The new intersection of Deep River Road and Eastchester Drive in north High Point could open this fall, an executive with the general contractor for the project said.

Grading began at the first of the year on the new halfmile section of Deep River that will tie into Eastchester at Lake Forest Drive. The new intersection, near Deep River Church of Christ on Eastchester, will include a traffic signal, which doesn’t exist at the current intersection of the two roads. The new intersection is 1,400 feet from the existing one. Weather permitting, the new section of Deep River

and the intersection should be completed by mid-October, said Ivan Clayton, vice president and general manager with Sharpe Brothers of Greensboro. If finished in the fall, the project would come in ahead of the original completion date of December. “Right now the grading is substantially completed,” Clayton said Wednesday. Work is progressing on installing water lines, the

traffic signal and a retaining wall, he said. The project, funded through the federal stimulus, will cost $1.5 million, according to N.C. Department of Transportation figures. The new intersection is designed to make it easier for motorists to turn left from Deep River onto Eastchester and from Eastchester onto Deep River. The intersection will include left- and right-turn

lanes on Deep River at the Eastchester traffic signal. The new section of Deep River will cut off to the west of the existing road just beyond the Sunset Hollow residential development. The existing section of Deep River Road from First Christian Church Ministries of High Point to Eastchester will remain open, mainly for local traffic.

RANDOLPH COUNTY – An Archdale man was in federal custody Wednesday after his alleged threats led to a lockdown at a local elementary school. The Randolph County Sheriff’s Office reported that it got a call from Randolph County 911 Com-

munications in reference to a man who made threats that he was on his way to “get” his former girlfriend because he had discovered where she was living, authorities said. The man also allegedly made threats to go to John Lawrence Elementary School in Archdale where his son is in the fourth grade and “get” the child, ac-

cording to the sheriff’s office. The caller stated that the man was armed with a .20-gauge shotgun and possibly other weapons. The caller further stated that she had an active domestic violence protective order against the man, who authorities identified as Bennie Lee Kinley II, 43, of Greendale Road, Archdale. After receiving the call, a sheriff’s deputy imme-

Chambers come together for business expo BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – From boots to overalls, Anna Galloway-Currie was decked head to toe in cowgirl attire Wednesday – all for the sake of business. Representing Exclamations Catering, a member of the High Point Chamber of Commerce, Galloway stood next to her rented booth at the Tri-County Market Place, a showcasing of businesses from the High Point, Thomasville and Archdale/Trinity chambers of commerce. It was the first time the three chambers gathered together for the business exposition. “For us, it’s people just seeing us and seeing what we do,” said GallowayCurrie, owner of the catering service, about why she chose to participate in the exposition. “We do a lot of theme events. When they

That’s where the outfit comes from.” Held from 1 to 5 p.m. in the International Home Furnishings Center’s Interhall space, Tom Day-

vault, president of the High Point Chamber of Commerce, said the combination of the three chambers expounded on the region’s business and service offerings. The High Point Chamber of Commerce holds the exposition each year, but this is the first time the other

two chambers have joined. The show was open to the public. “We’re always thinking regionally,” Dayvault said. “This is a big part of our ‘buy local’ campaign that we do to encourage our residents to buy services and wares in the community.”


Beverly Nelson, president of the Archdale/Trinity Chamber of Commerce, said the joining of the three chambers allows its members to reach a broader audience at the show. “We did this to expand the opportunities and exposure for our members,” Nelson said. “We have a great relationship with the other two chambers. It also allows for a good place to do some face-to-face networking.” Representatives from faith-based retirement home Piedmont Crossing in Thomasville said the unifying of the three chambers benefitted the businesses that participated. “It’s like one-stop shopping here,” said Joy Cline, director of marketing and sales for the retirement home. “It gets the word out to the community so people know who we are.” | 888-3617

Trinity looks to amend cell tower rules BY DIANNA BELL ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

TRINITY – Trinity officials have taken a step to assure cell phone towers that may locate in the city will meet certain safety standards. The Trinity Planning and Zoning Board has been discussing a telecommunications ordinance that regulates the standards that wireless towers and facilities must meet in order to be located in the city. The discussion arose due to growth in the cellular communications industry along with a request from a company to build a tower. American Tower applied to the city in hopes of placing a tower on a property near Hopewell Church Road and Interstate 85. This prompted officials to take another look at an existing telecommuni-

cations ordinance that already was on the books. After reviewing the ordinance, the board decided some changes needed to be made. While height restrictions and fall zone requirements already were in place, the board wanted further protections for the public. The council’s main concern was that the fall zone for the proposed tower would be near railways and roads, causing potential damage. “We wanted to strengthen the ordinance,” said Adam Stumb, Trinity planning and zoning administrator. “In doing so, we also wanted to protect the city a little more.” Additions to the existing telecommunications ordinance under consideration include making the property owner responsible for the removal of the tower should the facility need to be removed at

any time in the future if the tower owner is unable. It also sets rules for public hearings on future tower requests. Rusty Monroe, owner of the Center for Municipal Solutions Consultants, was hired as a mediator between the city and the telecommunications company at a starting cost of $5,000. “I want to put the town in control of the wireless service and ensure the least-visually intrusive facility possible,” Monroe told board members at a meeting last week. The Center for Municipal Solutions Consultants, headquartered in Wake Forest and in Delmar, N.Y., works with local governments to help regulate communications towers and wireless facilities. The ordinance changes have yet to be approved by the City Council. | 888-3537

Obama has vowed to help repeal the 1993 law, which prohibits the military from asking service members whether they are gay, but bans homosexual activity and requires that gay troops not discuss their sexual orientation. His comments were prompted by a soldier’s question on whether policymakers understood the impact of changing the decades-old “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy. It was the last question in an “All Hands Call” with Fort Bragg soldiers. Other questions from soldiers focused on problems with overcrowding at the base and health care. Pfc. Daniel Callaghan, 23 from Kalamazoo, Mich., said repealing the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy won’t affect the way he treats his unit mates. “When you put on the uniform, you stop being an individual. You are a soldier first,” Callaghan said. At the beginning of the meeting, Mullen told soldiers the deployment cycle will slow down in the next few years as the Army’s expansion will allow soldiers to spend twice as much time at home.

FORT BRAGG (AP) – The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff told soldiers at a North Carolina Army post on Wednesday that the military’s policy banning gays from serving openly will likely go away, but not immediately. Adm. Michael Mullen said soldiers should participate in the Defense Department’s survey to determine how to implement new rules. That study, due in December, is based on a current survey of troops and their families. “Believe me their voices are going to matter in terms of implementation, which is what the review and study was all about,” Mullen told reporters after the meeting at Fort Bragg. “Their voices are absolutely vital and will be incorporated to how we move forward if and when the law changes.” Mullen, the president’s chief military adviser, told the soldiers that the law violated the military’s values because it forces service members to lie about their sexual orientation.

Widows caught in military, civilian worlds RAEFORD (AP) – Joann Yost still feels the stares of the other military wives five years after her husband was killed in Iraq: It happens at ceremonies honoring fallen soldiers or when she’s grocery shopping with her son. It is unsettling, but Yost understands. In this North Carolina community a half-hour from Fort Bragg, where homes are draped with American flags and where it’s not uncommon to see men in buzz cuts, the 44-yearold Yost is a reminder of everything that can go wrong in war, how lives can change overnight. “These women look at me and know how close it could have been their husband,” said Yost, mother of a 6-year-old boy. It is hard to be a young military widow. Yost and others say they feel out of place in both civilian life and in their military communities. They have lost their husbands, but also their very identities, and their connections to towns that once provided a critical support system. Increasingly, they are turning to social networks and organizations for help in adjusting to their new lives. To be sure, it is difficult for anyone who has lost a spouse to move on with life. But military wives feel an even greater weight, said Michelle Hernandez, founder of

the Soaring Spirits Loss Foundation, a national support network for the bereaved. Hernandez said the pain is compounded because military wives immerse themselves in a different world. They learn the acronyms sprinkled in soldierspeak, attend a calendar filled with military-hosted social events and adopt the schedule of long leaves and weekends between deployments. They also share a similar world view: They are sacrificing their family life and lives defending freedom. As a result, their struggle to move on is also harder. They often feel that if they start to date again, they are betraying not just the memory of their deceased husbands but also that of fallen national heroes. “That separates them a little bit from civilian widows,” said Hernandez, whose organization this August will hold Camp Widow, a national conference in San Diego, which will include talks for military widows. “They have paid the price for the greater common good. They point to a purpose that they were widowed. My husband was hit by a car so it’s a totally different type of experience.” Many surviving spouses try to continue living near bases to maintain a connection to their previ-

Some send care packages to their husbands’ units – even if they did not know many of the new troops. They go to military-sponsored balls. But many find themselves trapped in a state of restless uncertainty. They don’t feel as comfortable as before in military life, but they don’t want to totally leave it, either. Joann Yost sometimes feels as if she is wearing a giant “W” on her chest. “It’s not OK for us to laugh. It’s not OK for us to smile. They don’t understand how we’re doing it. I find myself consoling people,” she said.

Yost sees military wives counting the number of drinks she orders at a bar or whispering when she speaks to another man. In some ways, she understands. She remembers doing the same to another military widow before her own husband died. Master Sgt. Tony Yost was killed in 2005 after an explosion went off in a building where he was searching for insurgents in the northern Iraqi town of Mosul. He was 39. Three weeks after her husband’s death, Yost buried him in Arlington National Cemetery. The coffin was closed and she

Reidsville man charged in wife’s death MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

REIDSVILLE – A Reidsville man is in custody and charged with murdering his common-law wife after allegedly beating the woman profusely on the side of a road in Davidson County on Sunday. The couple’s young child watched from the backseat of their vehicle.

Beresford Campbell, 54, has been charged by the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office in the murder of Beverly Wiley, 48. The two lived together at 1325 Linville Drive in Reidsville.

US lawyer jailed in Rwanda attempts suicide

Taliban fighters wearing suicide vests fired at the tent holding some 1,500 dignitaries, lawmakers and civil society activists, triggering a battle with security forces that killed at least two militants. Three civilians, but no delegates, were wounded. One rocket landed with a thud about 100 yards from the tent and kicked up smoke.

The trial is due to get under Blagojevich way today. Blagojevich is accused of trying to sell President Barack Obama’s former Senate seat. He has pleaded not guilty. The attorneys spoke on condition of anonymity, saying the subpoena was not public. A White House spokesman did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment. The indictment says Blagojevich ordered an associate to pressure Emanuel, then a congressman, to have his brother raise campaign funds and threatened to withhold a state grant for a school in Emanuel’s district. Nothing in the indictment suggests Emanuel was ever threatened.

BP faces setback; Florida eyes slick PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) – The BP oil slick drifted perilously close to the Florida Panhandle’s famous sugar-white beaches Wednesday as a risky gambit to contain the leak by shearing off the well pipe ran into trouble a mile under the sea when the diamond-tipped saw became stuck. Crews freed the blade from the pipe and were hoping to finish the cut later in the day. The plan was to fit a cap on the blown-out well at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico to capture most of the spewing oil; the twisted, broken pipe had to be sliced first to allow a snug fit. “I don’t think the issue is whether or not we can make the second cut. It’s about how fine we can make it, how smooth we can make it,” said Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen, the government’s point man for the crisis. As the edge of the slick drifted within seven miles of Pensacola’s beaches, emergency workers rushed to link the last in a mileslong chain of booms designed to fend off the oil. They were stymied by thunderstorms and wind before the weather cleared in the afternoon. Forecasters said the oil would probably wash up by Friday, threatening a delicate network of islands, bays and white-sand beaches that are a haven for wildlife and a major tourist destination dubbed the Redneck Riviera. “We are doing what we can do, but we cannot change what has happened,” said John Dosh, emergency director for Escambia County, which includes Pensacola.



Ex-JonBenet suspect sought over threats SAN FRANCISCO – Police are seeking the whereabouts of the man who once falsely claimed to have murdered JonBenet Ramsey after a former acquaintance told authorities that he threatened to kill her if she revealed his attempts to form a cult of little girls to have sex with him. Samantha Spiegel, 19, claimed in a request for a restraining order against John Mark Karr that he made “ongoing death threats” and “threats of sexual exploitation to children” in e-mails and instant messages.

Brooklyn Bridge getting a makeover


Oil drips from a glove dipped into the water during a tour by Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal of an area impacted by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill at Pass a Loutre, La., Wednesday. Since the biggest oil spill in U.S. history began to unfold April 20 with an explosion that killed 11 workers aboard an offshore drilling rig, crude has fouled some 125 miles of Louisiana coastline and

washed up in Alabama and Mississippi as well. Over the past six weeks, the well has leaked anywhere from 21 million to 45 million gallons by the government’s estimate.

NEW YORK – The Brooklyn Bridge has been through a lot in its 127 years, and now the New York icon needs a facelift. The famous 1.1-mile suspension bridge is getting a $500 million makeover, a project that includes a complete repainting and the repair of elements that were part of its original construction. The federal economic recovery act provided $30 million for the effort. ENTERPRISE NEWS SERVICE REPORTS

Consider public safety in chase decision-making According to my calculator, the trooper who struck Sandra Allmond’s car while pursuing a speeder was traveling 176 feet each second, based on estimates he was going 120 mph. Think about that. If Allmond started turning when the trooper was 400 feet away (11⁄3 football fields), she would have had 2 1⁄4 seconds before impact. In other words, she never had a chance to avoid or probably even realize what was about to happen. I’m the first one to wish there was a cop around when I see some imbecile speeding on the road. But to chase someone at 176 feet per second on a road as busy as the one where this accident occurred is insane. In high-speed chases, there is a fine line between protecting the public and putting the public at risk. Let’s make sure that line gets crossed only when the circumstances call for it. BILL WALLACE High Point





Some people will believe anything you tell them Lately, I have been remembering some of the stories my father told about his younger brother. One in particular seems appropriate to share. It seems that Bill was accused of murder (the upper Peninsula of Michigan was a wild place during the decades ending the 19th century) and forced to defend himself. The story he told was simplicity itself: “I saw the varmint coming across the fields heading for our barn so I got out Pa’s best rifle, loaded it, aimed it, and pulled the trigger. “And then the darnedest accident happened. The gun fired and the bullet hit him square in the chest and, next thing I knew, he

was dead. Never had an accident like that happen before.” Bill was a believable man and so, I am told, the jury of his peers acquitted him. I remembered that little story when I was reading that the Republican (and I guess Tea Party) nominee for senator in the great state of Kentucky had excused BP from all blame in the Gulf oil spill because it was just an accident. Strangely enough, the candidate for the Senate had concluded it to be an accident just after one of the survivors of the explosion and fire on the drilling rig enumerated mistake after mistake the companies in charge of the rig had made. Perhaps, like my uncle, BP is believable.

Jobless numbers decline W

Remember, 2010 figures are being compared to weak results in the first quarter of 2009.




t’s great news that the city of High Point recently got several hundred thousand dollars more for surplus vehicles than it has gotten in the past because it’s using an online auction service. That adds extra revenues. But let’s also hope the city is getting more miles out of its vehicles now, too, and saving on or postponing costs of buying new ones.

e don’t want you to get your hopes up too much too quickly but a couple of recent reports indicate economic conditions steadily are improving. Labor force estimates by the North Carolina Employment Security Commission for April indicate jobless rates fell in High Point from 11.1 to 10.5 percent; in Guilford County from 11.1 to 10.4 percent, in Randolph County from 11.8 to 10.5 percent and in Davidson County, one of the hardest hit counties in the state’s Piedmont area, from 13.1 to 12.1. Granted, current jobless rates are far too high, but we all can take solace in the declines we’ve experienced and the fact that, in the Davidson/Guilford/ Randolph county area, 351,276 people are employed. News from Furniture Insights, the newsletter published by High Point-based Smith Leonard Accountants and Consultants, boosts hopes that recovery is on its way, reporting that about 61 percent of furniture companies surveyed reported increases in year-over-year sales in March. Remember, 2010 figures are being compared to weak results in the first quarter of 2009, but the 9 percent increase in sales certainly is welcome. Ken Smith, who writes the Furniture Insights reports, noted jumps in existing home sales, new home sales and retail sales all bode well for overall economic conditions affecting the furniture industry. No, we’re not out of the woods yet, but at least we’re heading in the correct direction.

Ongoing oil spill destroys the ‘Myth of Competence’


ow they’re saying August. August. After a month and a half of “top kill” and “junk shot,” of chemical dispersants and high-tech domes, of skimmers and controlled burns, this is what we have to show for it. We are now told it may take another “two months” to stop oil from spewing into Gulf Coast waters. And that’s assuming no hurricane sweeps into the Gulf and forces temporary suspension of the effort to dig two relief wells. The immediate consequences of the April 20th oil rig explosion that started all this have long been manifest. Eleven lives were lost. Oil spilled into our seas, wreaked havoc upon the various forms of fish, fowl and crustaceans for whom the ocean is home or feeding ground. The disaster also struck at the economic lifeblood of a region still trying to find its footing after being ransacked by Hurricane Katrina. Weeks later, one other consequence becomes jarringly apparent: the Myth of Competence has died. Meaning the belief that people who engage in high-risk activities – in this case, the ones who drill for oil 5,000 feet under the sea – know what they’re doing, that they have every contingency covered, that even their backup plans have backup plans. Surely this is what Sarah Palin was thinking when she chirped, “Drill, baby, drill!” Surely this is what President Barack Obama relied upon when he recently proposed to open new waters to oil exploration. Anticipating protests from environmentalists, he even promised that “we’ll employ new technologies that reduce the impact of oil exploration. We’ll protect areas that are vital to tourism, the environment, and our national security.” Three weeks later, the oil rig exploded. So far, that protection he promised has been nonexistent. That faith in new technologies he mentioned has proved misplaced. And “Drill, baby, drill!” has come to seem tinnier and more childish than ever – energy policy as schoolyard chant. We have been disabused of the Myth of Competence, shorn of the belief that the people in charge are capable of handling any eventuality. Instead, we have seen oil company executives passing the blame around like a hot po-

tato. We have seen strategy after strategy announced in great hope, abandoned in grim resignation. We have seen days turn to weeks and weeks to months and now, apparently, months will turn to seasons. And still the oil flows. OPINION Perhaps most damning of all, we have seen reports that the Leonard Minerals Management Service, Pitts the unit of the Interior Depart■■■ ment whose job it is to police the oil companies, performed its duties with a shoddiness and inattention bordering on the criminal. We’re talking about allegations that MMS personnel accepted expensive gifts and entered sexual relationships with representatives of companies they were supposed to be regulating. And allowed those officials to fill out their own inspection forms. And ignored warnings from the government’s scientists about possible environmental impacts of opening certain areas to drilling. Why not, after all? What’s the worst that could happen? Nothing, unless you count up to 800,000 gallons of oil a day spilling into the sea. The other day on CNN, they had one of those viewer participation segments where they asked people for their ideas of how to stem the leak. One individual suggested parking a Navy sub atop the well. I remember thinking it a silly idea, impractical for any number of reasons. Then you look at BP flailing around and you have to reconsider. How is that idea any less likely than the things the “experts” have tried without success? If you hear a certain bitterness in my voice, well, I confess. I look at that ubiquitous video feed of oil gushing into Gulf waters and realize I took for granted that these people knew what they were doing and that they were being regulated by those who had the nation’s best interests at heart. Obviously, I made a mistake. LEONARD PITTS JR., winner of the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for commentary, is a columnist for the Miami Herald.

We remember the sacrifice for our freedom



ince the April oil-spill disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, two very different leadership styles have been on display. On the one hand, we have President Obama, who took nine days before making a public statement on the spill. On the other, we have Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, who has been intensely and vocally involved from the beginning. Now, we must all recognize that during the course of a presidency unexpected and unprecedented events will occur that cannot be blamed on the administration. And this is one of those cases. However, it is not always the event itself that causes the most trouble – it is the response to the situation that usually gets you. In the wake of recent criticism, President Obama has been forced to backtrack and step up his attention to the oil spill. The spill – which may have already released 90 million gallons of oil into OPINION the Gulf and has now reached the Michael marshes of LouisiReagan ana, “oiling� some ■■■ 84 miles of the coast – is undoubtedly the greatest national disaster of the Obama presidency. Yet despite intense Democratic criticism for President Bush’s response to a natural disaster, Hurricane Katrina, in this same state, President Obama’s response has been underwhelming, to say the least. Under the justification of maintaining a regular schedule and demonstrating calm, President Obama has cavalierly gone about with casual events, even fundraisers, choosing to keep most of his disaster response effort private. So private, in fact, that those of us living far away from the slick might even be forgiven for forgetting about it. This is not a superficial matter for a president. Even if President Obama’s administration were, in fact, exercising the highest level of competency in dealing with the catastrophe, it is the job of a president to handle not only the practical matters of government, but to also be the public face to encourage, motivate, and inform the public. This is a job he is failing. Down in Louisiana, people have seen a very different story. Jindal

has engaged completely in all aspects of disaster relief efforts. He has been a tireless advocate for his state, challenging mistaken federal approaches and pressuring BP to make every possible effort to quell this spill. And when the focus is fully switched to clean-up efforts, the people of Louisiana can have every confidence that Jindal will continue in the manner he has begun. BP’s attempt to staunch the oil, their “top kill� tactic, didn’t succeed. This effort involved pumping an intense concentration of heavy mud and cement into the oil flow in an effort to staunch the flow. Initial results were promising, but it was not effective in stopping the flow. And another attempt with another method was incountering trouble Wednesday afternoon. Right now, residents of the Gulf Coast need the administration to demonstrate the type of leadership being exercised by Jindal. President Obama has been talking about the future of offshore drilling, placing additional restrictions and extending the moratorium on drilling. None of this, however, deals with the reali-

Need a job?

ties of the oil currently pouring into the ocean, and the livelihoods of Louisianans which are being destroyed. Again we see a pattern of lackluster efforts from our president. Words and a veneer of calm are not a demonstration of leadership. They do not serve as action and progress. And coming from an administration whose party trounced President Bush for his conduct in the Gulf, such “leadership� is not only ineffective, but actually hypocritical. I will be watching with the rest of the country to see where the President goes from here. I hope he will exceed the pattern he has shown us so far. And in the meantime, my prayers and support are with Jindal and the good people of Louisiana in the face of this tragedy.

Obama’s early response to oil spill was underwhelming

reason for laying their lives on the line. So in this era of crisis LESSONS – from LEARNED unemployment to Paula budget Williams deficits to ■■■ disastrous oil spills in the Gulf of Mexico – here is the message I believe our fallen heroes would have for us today: • Never forget that the price of freedom is precious for which many servicemen and women along with their families have dearly paid. Our congregation at Conrad Memorial Baptist still misses our dear friend, Felipe Barbosa, who lost his life in Iraq and who set an unforgettable example of dedication to God and country for us all. • Never forget that the cause of freedom is just and even sacred. • And never forget that the privilege of freedom makes us among a select few who enjoy its benefits on a daily basis. We need to cherish the privilege of freedom, and we need to teach our children about the tremendous legacy of service and sacrifice made over the years for us.

onday was a wonderful (albeit rainy) day, wasn’t it? The last Monday in May marks the unofficial beginning of summer, a day off from school and work, and time to spend with family and friends. Lest we forget, however, it also marks Memorial Day, a national day of remembrance. Over the course of our nation’s history, there are countless thousands to remember. Arlington Cemetery contains a staggering 300,000 grave sites on its 624 acres and averages 27 new burials per workday. Cemeteries across our land also contain the remains of fallen protectors of freedom, including our own Floral Garden Cemetery. What would our veterans today and our fallen soldiers of both today’s conflicts and wars past want us to remember on this day? Monday provided the opportunity to give that question some thought. I would venture to say that no soldier ever enlists and subsequently goes into battle thinking that our country is going down the tubes and no longer worth fighting for. I don’t think they enlist with a Democratic or Republican strategy for winning a war. I think our military men and women enlist for one reason – love of country and of freedom. For them, the glass is half-full vs. half-empty. They choose to see the good in us all and a

More teens use rhythm method for birth control ATLANTA (AP) – A growing number of teen girls say they use the rhythm method for birth control, and more teens also think it’s OK for an unmarried female to have a baby, according to a government survey released Wednesday. The report may help explain why the teen pregnancy rate is no longer dropping like it was. Overall, teenage use of birth control and teen attitudes toward pregnancy have remained about the same since a similar survey was done in 2002. But there were some notable exceptions in the new survey by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. About 17 percent of sexually experienced teen girls say they had used the rhythm method – timing their sex to avoid fertile days to prevent getting pregnant. That’s up from 11 percent in 2002. They may have been using another form of birth control at the same time. But the increase is considered worrisome because the rhythm method doesn’t work about 25 percent of the time, said Joyce Abma, the report’s lead author.

Economic optimism



Commission says several new projects are to come BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – Five possible economic development projects, including one that would utilize city incentives, soon could be adding jobs to the area. At its regular meeting Wednesday, the High Point Economic Development Corp. held a closed session to talk about a project that could be given up to $35,000 in city incentives, according to EDC President Loren Hill.

The High Point Enterprise reported last week that incentives for the project would be considered at a public hearing at 5:30 p.m. June 7 at City Hall. It also reported that the company would occupy space in the building at Premier Drive and Eastchester Drive “at 4050 Premier Drive and/or 4090 Premier Drive,” according to the city. No action was taken during the closed session, but more details about the project, including the name of the company, are expected to be released today.

The meeting was held at Zaki Oriental Rugs on S. Main Street where board members toured the fine rug showroom. Hill said after the meeting that there are at least four more economic development projects that could be announced in the coming months. Three of those projects would be developed in the southern portion of the city, and one would be developed in north High Point. “They are a variety of projects,” he said. “Some are manufacturing, some are distribution, and

some are a different type of manufacturing.” The other four projects have not asked for incentives from the city, he said. Announcing the most current project today is a good start to a busy summer for the EDC, Hill said. “We’re hopeful,” he said. “We know we are the leading candidate for the (current) project, but there are others in the running. But it is all very exciting.” | 888-3617

Party hardy at the library Inside...


More information, complete schedule. 1C BY JORDAN HOWSE ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – You don’t usually find a party at the library, but that’ll be the case tonight. This year’s “Party on the Plank” concert series kicks off at 5:30 p.m. at the Neal F. Austin High Point Public Library on N. Main Street. The party starts with A Touch of Class, an R&B band, at 6 p.m., followed by The Part Time Party Time Band, a beach music band, at 7:30 p.m. Event Chairman Elijah


Lovejoy said he wants to create a concept of community. “I’m basically trying to bring people together and create a town square atmosphere,” Lovejoy said. Lovejoy said he had a vision of cultural renewal of the downtown area. “I heard people talking about how they wish more was going on in downtown High Point, and they wanted something to do,” Lovejoy said of the series, which is in its second year. There are two different genres of music at every event to try to reach everybody in High Point and the surrounding area. Local bands and artist were recruited. “We have everything from R&B to country to Latin rock to beach, bluegrass, reggae, jazz and more,” Lovejoy said.


What: Party on the Plank When: Every Thursday, June 3-July 8, 5:30 p.m. Where: High Point Public Library at N. Main and N. Elm streets Cost: $2 ages 10 and up, free 9 and younger

Lovejoy said the library was selected as the location for the event because he wanted a Main Street venue and it’s a place people already are comfortable with. Kem Ellis, library director, agrees. “Elijah said he wanted a Main Street venue because of ‘plank’ in the name,” Ellis said. “ ‘Party on the Plank’ came from

Old Plank Road, now Main Street, and ran through the middle of the city.” “The library gets about 1,200 people per day. So maybe in the future we will have it further downtown, but right now I don’t think people are comfortable enough with the downtown area yet,” Lovejoy said. In addition to music and art, food and retail vendors have applied to join


the party. “It’s an opportunity for locally owned and operated businesses to promote or sell their product to the community,” Lovejoy said. Ellis said he’s looking forward to people coming out to the library and having a good time. “It’s part of the library’s strategic priority to make it a fun and dynamic place, and I feel like ‘Party on the Plank’ will help with that,” Ellis said. Prizes will be given each Thursday to the first 2,000 guests who buy the $2 admission bracelet. Kids under 9 are admitted free. The party starts tonight and will continue every Thursday night at 5:30 p.m. through July 8. | 888-3537

Lawmakers OK health coverage for young adults RALEIGH (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; North Carolina legislators have decided to close a gap that would have kicked young adults off the State Health Plan for a few months. The state Senate voted 2920 mostly along party lines on Wednesday to allow the children of state employees, teachers and retirees to stay on their parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; insurance until age 26. If Gov. Beverly Perdue signs the bill into law, the young adults can keep their health coverage between now and later this year, when their coverage is required by the federal health insurance overhaul law.

Former jailer appeals false imprisonment charge involving teen MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEW SERVICE

GRAHAM â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A former detention officer is on trial in Alamance County Superior Court on a misdemeanor false imprisonment charge stemming from an April 2008 tour of the jail involving a 15-year-old boy. A district court judge found Gerry Steven Helms, 52, of Burlington, and two other detention officers guilty of the charge in February 2009. Helms, who was given a prayer for judgment continued upon payment of court cost and ordered to complete 48 hours of community service, appealed the judgment. According to evidence presented Tuesday in Superior Court, the teen, who was described as having an attitude problem, and a friend were brought to the Alamance County jail on the night of April 5, 2008, by the boyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sister and her husband to receive a tour of the jail. What happened next was something the teenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family did not expect nor consented to, Assistant

District Attorney Jeff Connolly said. After being brought in, the teen was put in a holding cell and asked to change into a jail jumpsuit. He was locked in the holding cell for approximately 30 minutes, according to surveillance video jurors watched as part of the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s evidence. The video showed the boy being taken to different locations surrounded by four officers, including Helms. At one point, one of the officers is seen pushing the boyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face against a corner inside an elevator. In most of the shots, an officer is holding the boy by his shoulders or by his arms, which were folded behind his back. The teen was also taken to the old jail as part of the tour, though jurors were not able to see surveillance video of that since that part of the complex did not have cameras at the time, said Maj. Coley Rich, who oversees operations at the jail. Jurors will have to rely on the testimony of the teen and Helms to determine what happened in that part of the tour.

Teacherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s speech helps keep jobs

Good marriage undermined by coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bad sex life


ear Abby: My wife, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Alana,â&#x20AC;? and I have been married for 14 years. In many ways our marriage is good, but our sex life is horrible. In my opinion, it has never been good. As time passes, I feel more and more anger toward her. Alana is attractive and physically fit; I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand her lack of desire. When the subject of sex comes up, it makes us both clam up. I have been thinking of leaving her. We have become more like best friends than husband and wife. Our two boys would be crushed if we split. I have not â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and would never consider â&#x20AC;&#x201C; an affair. What do you think about this? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Troubled Husband in Missouri Dear Troubled: Good sex is all about open communication. If the subject makes you and your wife both clam up, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no wonder your sex life has faltered. Before you and Alana can get on the same wavelength, you need to understand how each of you defines a good sex life. The reason sex therapy has become a medical specialty is that so many couples have the same problems youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re experiencing. Before deciding to call it quits, ask your doctor for a referral to a sex therapist. Dear Abby: I am going to be a sophomore

I know having my education paid for has helped them out, but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t I have a right to do what makes me happy?

My mother was mentally ill, my father was absent, and the school was my haven. I often wish I could tell some of those adults who helped me along the way that I did make it, that I turned out OK, and that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m so grateful for the little and big ways they intervened in my life. To all who serve children: Please know that even very small kindnesses give hope and strength to the child who doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t receive them elsewhere. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Turned Out Ok Thanks To You

erly Perdue before July 1. While lawmakers said they were already committed to shifting more money to public education, a case can be made that Frutig contributed to the House proposal that lawmakers and education advocates agree could help save more school positions than the Senateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget. House

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You hear from the real people out there in the real world, and it helps us make real decisions.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Doug Yongue D-Scotland Democrats say their plan will preserve more than 1,600 school personnel positions next year across North Carolina. Several lawmakers said this week they were moved by her comments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was real. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t made up,â&#x20AC;? said Rep. Doug Yongue, D-Scotland, one of the Houseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chief budgetwriters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You hear from the real people out there in the real world, and it helps us make real decisions.â&#x20AC;? Frutig, employed in one of more than 230 Durham County public school teaching positions in jeopardy due to state spending reductions also affecting other districts, doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know whether the House bill will help her retain her

job. But sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazed by the response to her comments. One day last week â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just literally started crying when I walked out of school because wow, it is really making a difference,â&#x20AC;? Frutig said. Frutig, a Michigan transplant who came to North Carolina in 2006 to teach in Goldsboro before going to Durham two years later, grabbed the attention of the Appropriations Committee leaders ready to call it a night. They had heard from more than 60 speakers at the public hearing held at the North Carolina State University in Raleigh. With the time nearing 10 p.m., Frutig told lawmakers that she had signed up daughter Julia and son Charlie for Medicaid because sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll soon be out of work, losing her $35,200 salary. She said she got rid of cable television when she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have enough food for her family. She spent her savings to get her car repairs in April and went to a free museum and stayed at friendsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; homes for vacation. Frutig pointed out that lawmakers approved a budget last year that contributed to local school districts eliminating more than 5,000 positions this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know that budget writers need to make priorities. I understand priorities,â&#x20AC;? Frutig said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand, quite frankly, is the priority of state budget writers.â&#x20AC;?

Senate gives initial OK for debt package RALEIGH (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; North Carolina would be authorized to borrow $451 million to repair state buildings, improve two engineering schools and buy equipment for higher education in a bill tentatively approved by the Senate. The chamber gave initial approval Wednesday to the debt package by a vote of 3217. The bill doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t require statewide voter approval. A final Senate vote should come Thursday. Most of the debt would go for engineering buildings.

RALEIGH (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Chalk one up for people who say one person can make a big difference in petitioning big government. Durham schoolteacherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gina Frutigâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s impassioned two-minute plea to protect public education shook up an otherwise unmemorable public hearing by House budget-writers last week. House Democrats said the speech by Frutig, a 29year-old single mother of two who teaches fourth grade at R.N. Harris Elementary School and told lawmakers she received a pink slip for next fall, provided a real face of someone struggling to survive because of state budget cuts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am a North Carolina public school teacher. I educate children. I am unemployed,â&#x20AC;? she said at the close of the three-hour hearing, long after the TV news cameras had left. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My students need me in the classroom, my own children need me providing food and shelter for them, and I need you to make me a priority.â&#x20AC;? Frutigâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comments have much to do with why House Democrats say theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re so resolute about forming their $18.9 billion budget recommended by the House Appropriations Committee on Wednesday that tries to preserve more jobs in the classroom throughout the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s school districts. The full House will debate the measure today in hopes of passing the bill by early Friday to stay on track to get a final budget to Gov. Bev-

Sleep apnea treatment for reader almost as bad as the illness


ear Dr. Donohue: I was recently diagnosed with sleep apnea. I have a very difficult time with the mask and air intake. I think I sleep less now, from fighting the hose from the machine and from the pressure of the mask on my face. No one tells me how to handle these problems. Any information you give will be appreciated. – K.P.


Apnea (AP-knee-uh) is a Greek word meaning “no breathing.” Sleep apnea is repeated episodes of no breathing during the night. Those episodes might be as few as five in an hour to as many as 15 or more. The usual story involves a snorer whose snoring increases in loudness until there’s an abrupt silence. The silence marks the onset of no breathing. Finally, the affected person grunts, and breathing resumes, as does the snoring. Sleep apnea has significant health consequences. It raises blood pressure. It causes daytime sleepiness in dangerous situations, like driving. It promotes heart attacks and strokes. The standard treatment is CPAP (pronounced “sea pap”), continuous positive airway pressure. It’s a machine that delivers pressurized air through a mask to keep the throat open so air can enter the lungs. Apnea spells are eliminated. You’re not the only one to complain about the machine and mask. Many different delivery















machines and many different masks are available. If you were tested in a sleep clinic, the HEALTH people there can Dr. Paul put you on Donohue to other ■■■ apparatuses. Or the doctor who made the diagnosis can direct you to other equipment. A website that offers pictures of equipment can be found at www. It’s not the only website. You also might try the National Sleep Foundation at I know of no medicine to control sleep apnea. Other appliances might be helpful. One is a mandibular advancement splint that fits into the mouth to pull the lower jaw forward. That position of the jaw opens the throat so that air can pass through it easily. Dear Dr. Donohue: I am a 53-year-old male with elevated cholesterol. I’ve been taking Zocor for years. Are statin drugs really needed? I’ve been told that they are really bad for the body, and the Food and Drug Administration doesn’t want us to know the truth about them. Does red yeast rice help? – P.P. Statins are needed if exercise, weight loss and diet don’t lower cholesterol. The truth of the matter is that most of our

cholesterol comes from our own bodies. Our livers make it. Statins stop the liver’s production of it. They’re not bad. Every single medicine has the potential for side effects. Serious side effects from statins are not all that common, and they almost always go away when the drug is stopped. Truly, the FDA works for us. I take the same medicine as you. Red yeast rice is white rice processed with a yeast that imparts red color to it. It does lower cholesterol and triglycerides. What causes the lowering are substances called monacolins, closely related to statin drugs. The problem is that you are never sure of how much monacolins are in a batch of red yeast rice. It varies with the manufacturer. Dear Dr. Donohue: I have elevated triglycerides. My doctor told me to use omega-3 oils. Is this good advice? – R.D. Omega-3 fatty acids lower triglycerides by as much as 30 percent. The normal triglyceride reading ought to be below 150 mg/dl (1.7 mmol/L). Triglycerides are fats that circulate in the blood. They work in concert with cholesterol to plug arteries. Lowering triglycerides prevents heart attacks and strokes. Other things that bring down triglycerides are weight loss, cutting back on saturated fats (found in meats and whole-fat dairy products) and reducing the amount of sugar used.

Yesterday’s Bible question: What prophet is this verse speaking of: “Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations”?


Answer to yesterday’s question: Jeremiah. (Jeremiah 1:5) Today’s Bible question: Complete: “Neither say they in their heart, Let us now fear the Lord our God, that giveth ..., both the former and the latter, in his season; he reserveth unto us, the appointed weeks of the harvest.”

Party sign is at the corner of N. Main Street and Sunset Drive. The library is in the background..

Library kicks off Party on The Plank series tonight BY VICKI KNOPFLER ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER


IGH POINT – The large red sign in the yard of the public library on N. Main Street leaves little doubt that Party on the Plank begins tonight, after more than a year of planning. Every Thursday night for six weeks, High Point Neal F. Austin Public Library will be the focal point for a celebration of High Point and its Plank Road origin. Organizer Elijah Lovejoy also hopes the extended party will spark downtown revitalization. “People say this is good for High Point, and I agree, but for me it’s ultimately a vehicle to drive a vision,” Lovejoy said. “I don’t want it to be just about entertainment and making money. My vision is for cultural renewal. “Downtown has over 10 million square feet of building space, 25,000 cars per day on

Main Street and a $1.2 billion industry – furniture market. So what’s missing? Cultural vitality, which is the glue that creates a sense of vibrancy.” Lovejoy knows, however, that most people at tonight’s kickoff will come mostly to have fun. Each Thursday night two bands from the immediate area will perform – the first 6-7 p.m. and the second 7:30-8:30 p.m. – at a stage next to Krispy Kreme. “Elijah wanted diversity, and we got a pretty diverse group here,” said Randy Bishop, who organized the music. A Touch of Class (rhythm ’n’ blues) and Part Time Party Time Band (beach music) start the party tonight. The music schedule is purposely heavy on jazz in homage to John Coltrane, who grew up in High Point. June 24 is designated “John Coltrane Jazz and Blues Night,” and groups performing are underwritten by Prentice Foundation and Friends of John Coltrane.

In addition to music, each Thursday night includes art displays and special activities for children inside the library; sales of food, soft drinks and alcoholic beverages; sales by retail vendors. There still is space for additional retail vendors. Each Thursday, a sponsoring business will give something to the first 2,000 people who pay. Tonight 2,000 people will get a Krispy Kreme mini-doughnut. Party on the Plank panned out to be pretty much as Lovejoy envisioned, with the exception of admission, which originally was free but now is $2 for those age 10 and older and free for those younger than 10. He chalks up the change to the tight economy. “I feel like $2 isn’t too much of a hurdle for people, and it allows the community to not just enjoy the event, but help contribute to the overall vision of cultural renewal for the heart of High Point,” he said. “We’re trying to

adapt to reality and still hopefully have people come without too much of a cost barrier.” Lovejoy has raised approximately $30,000 toward anticipated expenses of $60,000. Of event sponsors, 24 are corporate, and 12 are community groups. Approximately $80,000 has been contributed in in-kind services. Nonprofit groups will receive fees paid by vendors and alcoholic beverage fees. “We want it to be one of the hottest events in the Triad, so we’re going after Triad audiences,” Lovejoy said. “I’ve been telling people, ‘Regionalism flows both ways.’ People like to talk about regional, and what that translates into is everybody’s going to Winston-Salem or Greensboro, so we’re saying, let’s create a context where regionalism can flow both ways throughout the Triad.” / 888-3601

for 13 years in row

When a college freshman discovers his girlfriend is pregnant, he must learn to juggle his homework and daddy duty or face losing his scholarship and his future in “Freshman Father,” a Hallmark Channel Original Movie premiering at 9 p.m. Saturday. Inspired by a true story, “Freshman Father” stars Golden Globe nominated actress Annie Potts (“Designing Women”), fourtime Emmy winner Kim Zimmer (“Guiding Light”) and Emmy nominee Drew Seeley (“High School Musical”) in a story about a young man who is about to discover he has a lot more to worry about than just the ‘freshman fifteen.’ Prom king and queen John Patton (Seeley) and Kathy Blair (Britt Irvin, “Hot Rod”) are the perfect small-town couple. They have everything they’ve ever wanted – including John’s full ride to Harvard University. But that all comes crashing down when Kathy gets pregnant the summer before their freshman year. Deciding to keep the baby, the couple gets married and moves to Cambridge, Mass., so John can pursue his dream and keep his scholarship at the Ivy League school. However, John soon finds out that having a family while trying to ace math is harder than it seems.

Thursday, June 3, 2010 CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Anderson Cooper, 43; Deniece Williams, 60; Suzi Quatro, 60; Tony Curtis, 85 HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Not everyone will be upfront and honest with you this year. Base your decisions on fact, not fiction. Your diligence and attentive way of handling others will bring you the rewards you deserve and opportunities to prosper and get ahead. Embrace whatever comes your way with optimism and positive energy and you will excel. Your numbers are 5, 12, 16, 19, 28, 36, 40 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Consider the possibilities and do what has to be done to expand an idea or develop a skill to achieve your goals. Talk to someone with experience but don’t let anyone bully you into something you aren’t sure of. ★★★ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You’ll have lots of get up and go but it can quickly turn to anxiety if you don’t have a good outlet. Expect someone to try to burden you with added responsibilities. Romance is looking quite desirable. ★★ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You can make things happen your way if you are somewhat accommodating. All you have to do is be pleasant, while you slip in your own touch and expertise. By the time anyone realizes, you will already have made your point by the success. ★★★★★ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Rely on your memory and your past experience in order to advance. An associate will entice you into getting involved in a project with the potential to bring you greater income. A goal you set many years ago can now be achieved. ★★★ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don’t sit back when there is so much to do. Put everything you’ve got into pursuing something you enjoy doing and for which you have a gift. You can expect to receive cash or a gift from an unusual source. ★★★ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Make a contribution to something you believe in. You will feel good about what you do and will drum up some additional business along the way. Adding a new dimension to a service you offer will allow you to earn more money. ★★★ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Look beyond to find out exactly what’s going on. If you are feeling unsure about a relationship, ask questions that will shed some light on where you stand and what you should be doing to make matters better. ★★★ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You have to take advantage of every opportunity that comes your way, no matter how big or small. Focusing on the little things will not give you a true evaluation of the possibilities. Be responsible and take control. ★★★★★ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Keep your thoughts to yourself and see what everyone else is thinking or planning. You are likely to meet with opposition if your plans sound extravagant or impossible. You will have to set a strict budget. ★★ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Do what you know will work and don’t deviate from your original plans, regardless of what others want you to do. Past experience will lead you in a positive direction. In the end, you will gain respect and recognition for your courage and ability to get things done. ★★★★ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don’t let a stubborn attitude be your downfall. Jealousy is a waste of time. Being honest about the way you feel and recognizing the way others feel will be vital to making the right decision. ★★★ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Do your own thing and follow your heart. Once you display what you have to offer, you will get a better response. If you aren’t satisfied with your current situation, get to the root of your problem so you can find a way to turn things around. ★★★




“The copier is out of whack,” read a sign in a legal firm’s office. “More whack is on order.” Declarer’s play in today’s deal was slightly out of whack and cost a vulnerable slam. After North-South landed at six spades due to overbidding by North, South won the first heart in dummy and led the nine of trumps to finesse. After he drew trumps, he led a club. West signaled with the ten to show a doubleton, and East let dummy’s king and queen win. South then let the queen of diamonds ride, but West’s king won. Down one.

TRUMP FINESSE South should win the first heart in his hand and lead a club to the king. If East takes the ace (it makes no difference if he ducks) and shifts to a diamond, South should take the ace since he needs the trump finesse to succeed. He leads a heart to dummy, picks up the trumps and runs the clubs to discard his diamond loser. How do you think South should play if the contract were four spades at matchpoint duplicate? It’s an enigmatic question.



DAILY QUESTION You hold: S 9 3 H K Q D Q J 9 6 5 C K Q J 9. You open one diamond, your partner responds one heart, you bid two clubs and he jumps to three diamonds. What do you say? ANSWER: If partner’s jump-preference is forcing per your partnership’s agreement, bid three hearts or four diamonds. If it isn’t forcing, pass. You can’t bid 3NT with no spade strength, and your hand has too many losers to make five diamonds a reasonable undertaking. South dealer N-S vulnerable

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

Capsule reviews


apsule reviews of films now showing in area theaters:

“Micmacs” – French director Jean-Pierre Jeunet, whose films include “Amelie” and “Delicatessen,” combines the spirit and visual flair of those fantasies for a frivolous, featherweight yet fun concoction about lovable misfits messing with big, bad weapons manufacturers. Like a grown-up gang of Little Rascals, with shades of Charles Chaplin’s Little Tramp and Buster Keaton’s wild antics, Jeunet’s ensemble romps through clever stunts and gimmickry to carry out their low-rent “Mission: Impossible” stratagems. Comedian and filmmaker Dany Boon stars as a gentle soul aiming to inflict some personal justice on the arms companies that made the munitions that left him with a bullet lodged in his brain and that killed his father. He finds allies in a band of scroungers and gatherers living in an elaborate subterranean dwelling made of scrap in a Paris junkyard. R for some sexuality and brief violence. 104 min. Three stars out of four. – David Germain, AP Movie Writer “Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time” – As we await the eventual arrival of “Donkey Kong:

The Musical!” yet another movie based on a video game, “Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time,” arrives in theaters. As this genre goes, “Prince of Persia” doesn’t have the shoddy appearance of, say, “Alone in the Dark” or “House of the Dead” or any number of films from the infamous German director Uwe Boll. No, this is a Jerry Bruckheimer production, so it looks cheesy in the kind of monster-budget way you can only achieve through copious amounts of computer-generated imagery. There’s nothing terribly memorable about “Prince of Persia”; recalling the plot a halfhour afterward might require some effort. Somewhere beneath all the fake, glossy effects – which in no way suggest anything even remotely resembling a tangible reality – there must be a story and characters and, you know, acting. Jake Gyllenhaal, as our courageous and resourceful hero Dastan, always has an engaging presence about him – those big, blue eyes, that goofy smile – and that sweetness helps keep the mood light when “Prince of Persia” threatens to take itself too seriously. PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action. Running time: 103 minutes. Two stars out of four. – Christy Lemire, AP Movie Critic

16-year-old blends pop and jazz for debut CD DANA SCHIMMEL ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER


EW YORK – Nikki Yanofsky has been scatting her way across some of music’s most hallowed stages, including Carnegie Hall, but don’t label her a jazz singer. At just 16, she doesn’t want to be pigeonholed. She loves all genres of music and takes her cues from the likes of jazz icon Ella Fitzgerald as well as from Led Zeppelin, whose classic rock riff from “Fool In the Rain” finds its way onto her first studio CD, “Nikki.” The new album combines standards and originals that Yanofsky co-wrote with veteran songsmiths Jesse Harris and Ron Sexsmith. Yanofsky says the three would seclude themselves in the basement of her family’s Montreal home writing. “An hour goes by, two hours goes by and you forget to eat because you’re so consumed with writing,” she said. “So my mom would just knock on the door and like, bring us cookies and water.” Yanofsky spoke recently about the new songs and her career, which seems to have taken off after her performance of the Canadian National Anthem at the opening ceremonies of the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. AP: What do you think the songs you co-wrote reveal about you as a person? Yanofsky: Every song kind of

opens up a tiny little crack into who I am, like “Never Make It on Time,” because I’m always late. And I was late going into the studio to record it and Jesse texted me, “You never make it on time,” and I’m like, at least we have a song about it. And “For Another Day” is one of my favorites. That reveals just how much of a daydreamer I really am. AP: Do you remember the moment when you realized singing was what you wanted to do? Yanofsky: Ever since I could talk I’ve been into music and

I’ve always been singing. And I was never like, “I want to be an architect.” It was never, “I want to be a fashion designer.” It was never any of that. It was always just “singer.” AP: You’ve been known to describe yourself as a strong character. Would you care to elaborate? Yanofsky: The thing is that some people either get it or they don’t. I find New York actually easier to be in because everybody’s kind of a strong character here. I love it. Everyone’s very forward. I just think it’s the best. AP: So does that make you an atypical Canadian? Yanofsky: I don’t know what a typical Canadian would be. Maybe friendly? I’m friendly. AP: How do you balance your career with being a regular 16year-old? Yanofsky: I guess everyone’s definition of regular varies and to me this is pretty much like all I’ve known. I’ve always wanted to be in music, so to me this feels like natural, and it feels regular and I don’t really feel like I’m missing out on anything. But, I do balance school. I do balance friends. When I’m in town I go to school; I do my work on the road. I video chat with my friends and BBM ... I’m always connected. I Twitter too. AP: What was your last Tweet? Yanofsky: “Oh no, I have an interview and I’m going to be late!”

HPU lands ace golf coach




fter calling to inquire about the head women’s golf coach opening at High Point University, Vici Pate Flesher remembers the school’s athletics officials becoming persistent in trying to hire her. “I called to ask a question about the program and that call escalated so much I felt like a recruit,” Pate Flesher said. “But, they were persistent in a nice way.” They had good reason to recruit her. Pate Flesher won NCAA Division III national championships all seven years she was the head coach at Methodist University in Fayetteville from 2003-2009. After getting married last year, SPORTS she dropped out of coaching to move to Kentucky to be with Greer her husband, who was the head Smith pro at Owensboro Country ■■■ Club. Pate Flesher served as the club’s director of instruction. HPU calmed any reservations Pate Flesher might have had about returning to coaching. Once she was satisfied about HPU’s commitment to the golf program and satisfied that she and her husband could financially justify leaving their Kentucky jobs, she said yes. HPU officially announced her hiring Wednesday. “It’s nice to feel wanted and I knew they wanted me,” she said. “That gave me the confidence that I can do what they want me to do. I called to see what was going on. I knew the program wasn’t what it had been in past years. I wanted to know what direction they were going. I was open to taking a Division I job. It just had to be the right place.” Pate Flesher said the opportunity to return to North Carolina played a factor. Being blown away by HPU’s campus was another. Her husband has decided to pursue a coaching job at a Division II school. “It’s given us the resources to move back to North Carolina, and that’s what we wanted all along,” she said. “But it was this particular opportunity and no other reason than that. The program just felt right. Everything about it is going in the right direction. “But I want to be clear it’s not all about the money. Someone could give me all the money in the world, but if they don’t have the resources to be successful, then that’s all for naught.” Even though her first day on the job is officially June 15, she plans to meet with her players by the end of the week and is already working on recruiting and scheduling tournaments for the fall and spring seasons.

Burt Myers plans to be a busy man this weekend. His schedule starts harmlessly enough with a race Friday in Ace Speedway’s modified division. Things then really start to get hectic. On Saturday, he will practice and qualify for Sunday’s NASCAR Modified Series race at Martinsville Speedway before shooting down the road to Bowman Gray Stadium, where he will try to protect a 21-point lead over Lee Jeffreys. Then on Sunday, it will be back to Martinsville.

“I have a pilot – but it is a Honda Pilot,” Myers joked when asked how he would get around compared to Cup drivers who would be ferried in a helicopter. Myers expects no problem in getting to Bowman Gray in time for practice shortly after 6 p.m., thanks to Martinsville and NASCAR officials moving qualifying up to 3 p.m. after a request from Myers and others trying to do the double. Myers has a different car for each race. “If we get out of there at 5 p.m. and all we need is to get to the stadium in time to get in four or five laps of practice to get

everything warmed up,” Myers said. As a possible contender at Martinsville against what will be an almost entire field of northern drivers, Myers should be in good shape. He crossed the finish line first in a tour event there two years ago, but his name is not in the record book because he was disqualified for a transmission rule violation. “Racing is a lot about politics,” Myers said. “Was the transmission not in accordance with the rule book? No. Did we have a competitive advantage? I don’t think so. But NASCAR said it

was wrong, so we took our medicine. It would be a morale lift to our team if we could go back up there and duplicate what we did.” The disqualification will serve as extra motivation for Myers, who still feels that he won. “It would be nice to come back and win the race,” Myers said. “I think that as far as redeeming myself, the fact that I won the NorthSouth Shootout that year and the next against the same cars, took some of the sting out of it. ” Myers is among five current or former Stadium regulars on the entry list. Others are his brother Ja-

son, Zach Brewer, Brian Loftin, Frank Fleming and Bryan Duzart. Former Southern Modified Tour champs L.W. Miller and George Brunnhoelzl are also entered. The top cars from the north have an advantage because they are better funded, Myers said. “The car that I’m bringing to Martisnville, the engine has eight races on it,” Myers said. “A lot of guys will have a fresh engine for Martinsville and they will keep rotating parts on the car because they’ve got that extended funding.” | 888-3519




he NBA Finals tip tonight with the Celtics and Lakers battling for another world championship. While Boston-L.A. always makes for some dramatic postseason hoops, it’s a shame Steve Nash will go another season without reaching the NBA Finals. Nash, a 14-year veteran, has performed in 118 career playoff games without ever appearing in an NBA Finals game. A two-time MVP, Nash is the only player in league history to win a regular-season MVP award but never advance to the league finals. That’s too bad.

Nash’s status as an all-time great is beyond question. He’s averaged nearly 15 points and 8.3 assists per game and shot 90.3 percent from the foul line. Plus, Nash is as tough as they come. He’s played with a broken nose, broken fingers and numerous other injuries throughout the course of his career. But Nash is not alone on the list of alltime greats who’ve never played in the NBA Finals. George Gervin and Dominique Wilkins are two other legends who never reached the ultimate playoff stage.

Gervin averaged 26.2 ppg in his 13-year pro career, appearing in nine All-Star Games and making all-NBA first team seven times. Wilkins scored 24.8 ppg in his 15-year NBA career and earned nine All-Star Game berths. Nash, at least, figures to have a few more seasons for an NBA Finals breakthrough. But one wonders if the presence of the Lakers, Spurs and Mavericks in the wild, rugged West will prove too tough an obstacle to overcome.



Ken Griffey Jr. retired Wednesday night, ending one of the great careers in baseball history. The 40-year-old Griffey told the Mariners that he was done playing, and manager Don Wakamatsu made the announcement before Seattle faced Minnesota. “While I feel I am still able to make a contribution on the field and nobody in the Mariners front office has asked me to retire, I told the Mariners when I met with them prior to the 2009 season and was invited back that I will never allow myself to become a distraction,” Griffey said in a statement. “I feel that without enough occasional starts to be sharper coming off the bench, my continued presence as a player would be an unfair distraction to my teammates, and their success as a team is what the ultimate goal should be,” he said. Griffey was hitting only .184.

Blown call derails perfect game in ninth THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

DETROIT — Armando Galarraga of the Detroit Tigers lost his bid for a perfect game Wednesday night with two outs in the ninth inning on a call that first base umpire Jim Joyce later admitted he blew. First baseman Miguel Cabrera cleanly fielded Jason Donald’s grounder to his right and made an accurate throw to Galarraga covering the bag. The ball was there in time, and all of Comerica Park was ready to celebrate the 3-0 win over Cleveland, until Joyce emphatically signaled safe. The veteran ump regretted it. “I just cost that kid a perfect game,” Joyce said. “I thought he beat the throw. I was convinced he beat the throw, until I saw the replay.” “It was the biggest call of my career,” said Joyce,


Carolina’s Steve Smith (right) laughs with tennis player John Isner after the Panthers’ workout in Charlotte on Wednesday.

Steve Smith, Isner hit it off CHARLOTTE (AP) – They play different sports, have contrasting backgrounds and one is a foot taller than the other. Yet it took just a chance seating assignment on a flight to Australia to forge a friendship between Carolina receiver Steve Smith and tennis’ John Isner. Five months after Smith cheered on Isner’s surprising run to the fourth round of the Australian Open, and a week after Isner was eliminated in the third round of the French Open, the hard-serving Isner was back in his home state on Wednesday watching the fiery Smith work out with his favorite team, the Panthers. “Never seen a practice like this up close at the pro level,” Isner said. Few Panthers players or coaches had been so close to a tennis player, either, especially one 6-foot-9. “I don’t know that there are many that tall,” coach John Fox said. The scene was a bit unusual and spiced up a normally mundane offseason workout at Bank of America Stadium. Smith is a 5-foot-9, four-time Pro Bowl pick who grew up in a rough part of Los Angeles. The towering Isner is a Greensboro native, six years younger than Smith, and who just recently started to make noise in majors. Look closer, however, and there are similarities. Smith was supposed to be

too small to play football and Isner too tall for tennis. Both have used their intense drive and athleticism to overcome those obstacles and become elite athletes. “I respect all athletes and all the sports they do. To get to that level is hard in whatever you do,” the 31-year-old Smith said. “Just because he doesn’t play football professionally doesn’t mean I have less respect or I think he’s less of an athlete. “I think how tall he is and how he moves, he’d be a pretty decent tight end, in my opinion.” The wiry Isner wasn’t so sure. “With 40 more pounds I could be a tight end,” Isner said, laughing. Smith likes many sports. He’s coached his kids’ soccer teams, watched professional matches in Europe, and was the guest of the Mexican national team when it played an exhibition in Charlotte in March. Smith, who said he plays a little tennis, was on his way to Melbourne to watch the Australian Open in January when his seat on the plane happened to be next to Isner’s agent. He recognized Smith, knew Isner was a Panthers fan, and arranged for them to meet. “We met at the players’ lounge at the tournament,” Isner said. “I got him a credential to get him through all the security and whatnot. We’ve just hit it off ever since.”

Ching, FSU take NCAA golf lead CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) — Neither heavy downpour nor a double bogey got in the way of San Diego’s Alex Ching. Ching shot a 6-under 66 for a 9-under 135 total, two strokes ahead of Augusta

his call. Galarraga looked stunned and Comerica Park went silent in disbelief. A couple of Tigers put their hands to their heads. Galarraga quietly went back to work as the crowd started to boo. Cabrera continued to argue the call as Galarraga quickly retired Trevor Crowe for the one-hit shutout.

who became a full-time major league umpire in 1989. Tigers manager Jim Leyland immediately argued the call and was joined by several of his players after the final out. Galarraga was trying to pitch the third perfect game in the majors this season. Galarraga (2-1) was in complete control throughout the night. Then Donald’s groundball became the flash point of the night, and perhaps the season. After center fielder Austin Jackson made a spectacular catch on Mark Grudzielanek’s leadoff fly in the ninth and Mike Redmond grounded out, Donald came up with two outs. Galarraga caught Cabrera’s toss and smiled, knowing what he’d just done. He held up his glove hand and started to make an out call with his right hand. And then Joyce made

sprained left ankle and the Celtics pulled out an 87-86 win at Staples Center on Feb. 18. Rajon Rondo averaged 17.5 points, 11.5 assists and 3.5 steals. Storyline: The NBA’s greatest rivalry gets another chapter as the Lakers and Celtics meet for the second time in three years, and the 12th time overall. Boston leads the series 9-2 after its six-game victory in 2008. Los Angeles won the title last year and is trying to become the league’s first repeat champion since it won three in a row from 2000-02. The Celtics have won 17 championships, two more than the Lakers. Key matchup I: Pau Gasol vs. Kevin Garnett. This one went to Boston in a big way two years ago, when Garnett, that season’s defensive player of the year, led a powerful interior defense that bullied the Lakers’ frontcourt. That increased the questions about whether Gasol is a “soft” player, but he’s much tougher now, and

he has a chance to prove it this time. Garnett scored at least 18 points in every game against Cleveland in the second round, then managed more than 10 only once against Orlando in the conference finals. Key matchup II: Paul Pierce vs. Ron Artest. For all the headaches Artest can cause with his questionable shot selection, the Lakers figured he’d be worth it for his defense against the top small forwards. They needed someone for Pierce, the finals MVP two years ago who has rebounded from a quiet offensive series against Cleveland in the second round. X-factor: Ray Allen. The Celtics need Allen’s jumper to be on, and that might be asking a lot considering he’ll have to spend time covering Bryant on the other end. Allen scored 24 points on 10-of-15 shooting in Boston’s victory in the regular season, but was held to seven points and shot just 2 for 10 in the loss. Prediction: Lakers in six.

Stosur shocks Serena PARIS (AP) – Serena Williams is usually the one who saves match points, not wastes them. Who seizes control of an exchange, not cedes it. Who turns up her game at Grand Slam time. Except at the French Open, the lone major tournament she’s won only once and where she’s now gone seven years without even reaching the semifinals. The No. 1-ranked Williams dropped 17 consecutive points during one stretch, climbed all the way back to within a point of victory, then faded late and lost to No. 7 Samantha Stosur of Australia 6-2, 6-7 (2), 8-6 on Wednesday in the Roland Garros quarterfinals. “Had I played better for two minutes, maybe the result could have been different. But it didn’t work out,” said Williams, who missed a forehand by an inch or so when she held a match point at 5-4 in the final set. “Just wasn’t playing well today. Last year, I choked. I guess it’s a redundant story with me.” The upset was Stosur’s second in a row – she eliminated four-time champion Justine Henin in the fourth round – and came a day after men’s No. 1 and defending champion Roger Federer was stunned by Robin Soderling. “It’s not over yet,” said Stosur, a tour-best 19-2 on clay this season and a 2009

Samantha Stosur reacts as she plays Serena Williams during Wednesday’s quarterfinal at the French Open. French Open semifinalist. “I want to definitely try and keep going.” In keeping with the run of surprises at this wideopen French Open, No. 22 Jurgen Melzer of Austria came back to beat No. 3 Novak Djokovic 3-6, 2-6, 6-2, 7-6 (3), 6-4 in the last men’s quarterfinal. Melzer, at 29 the oldest man left, never before won a match after losing the first two sets – and never made it beyond the third round at any Grand Slam tournament in 31 previous tries. His reward? A semifinal Friday against four-time champion Rafael Nadal, who eliminated No. 19 Nicolas Almagro 7-6 (2), 7-6 (3), 6-4. Nadal, who lost to Soderling in last year’s fourth round, extended his current winning streak on clay to 20 matches. In one women’s semifi-

nal today, Stosur will play No. 4 Jelena Jankovic, who got past unseeded Yaroslava Shvedova of Kazakhstan 7-5, 6-4. No. 5 Elena Dementieva will face No. 17 Francesca Schiavone in the other. None of the four women left has won a Grand Slam singles title. Williams owns 12, with five at the Australian Open – including this year – and three apiece at the U.S. Open and Wimbledon. The one at the French Open came in 2002. About an hour after that loss, Williams went back on court with her older sister Venus and reached the women’s doubles final by beating Liezel Huber and Anabel Medina Garrigues 2-6, 6-2, 6-4. That victory means Serena Williams will top the WTA rankings in singles and doubles as of next week.

DUBLIN, Ohio – Tiger Woods is the defending champion at Memorial and a four-time winner at Muirfield Village. It just doesn’t seem that way. He arrived at the course that Jack Nicklaus built – the one that Woods at times seems to own – with his game as unpredictable as ever. Woods is coming off a neck injury that he said now feels good enough to practice and play. He no longer has a swing coach, having split with Hank Haney three weeks ago, and has no plans to find another one anytime soon. Since returning to golf in April, he has completed only one tournament, a tie for fourth in the Masters. That takes on even greater significance with the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach only two weeks away. “Maybe this time I’ll get four rounds in and get ready for the Open,” Woods said Wednesday. He’ll find out what kind of swing he brings to the course today when the Memorial gets under way with some compelling story lines, not all of them in-

Ice Box the hot choice at Belmont NEW YORK (AP) – Ice Box has been made the 3-1 favorite for Saturday’s $1 million Belmont Stakes. Ice Box finished second in the Kentucky Derby and skipped the Preakness. Ice Box will leave from the No. 5 post for trainer Nick Zito and will be ridden by Jose Lezcano. A field of 12 3-year-olds has been entered for the final leg of the Triple Crown. Neither Derby winner Super Saver nor Preakness winner Lookin At Lucky are in the 11⁄2-mile Belmont. Preakness runner-up First Dude is the second choice at 7-2. Zito has a second Belmont starter in Dwyer winner Fly Down, the third choice at 9-2. Also entered Wednesday: Dave in Dixie, Drosselmeyer, Game on Dude, Interactif, Make Music for Me, Spangled Star, Stately Victor, Stay Put and Uptowncharlybrown.

volving Woods. Phil Mickelson, for the third straight tournament, has a chance to replace Woods at No. 1 in the world ranking. He was in position at The Players Championship with Woods out of the way, but went the wrong direction in the final round. At the Colonial last week, Mickelson missed the cut. More than the world ranking, Woods and Mickelson are more interested in having their game right for Pebble Beach.

SINGH AVOIDS US OPEN QUALIFYING DUBLIN, Ohio – Vijay Singh won’t have to go through qualifying to play in the U.S. Open in two weeks at Pebble Beach. The U.S. Golf Association granted Singh an exemption on Wednesday. He was scheduled to play in the 36-hole qualifier on Monday, a day after the final round of the Memorial Tournament. The USGA cited Singh’s battle against several injuries in giving him the exemption. Singh will be playing in his 64th consecutive major, the longest current streak.

’Canes’ old home could see NHL return EAST HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) – The former owner of the Hartford Whalers has launched a campaign that he hopes will eventually bring an NHL team back to Connecticut. Howard Baldwin said Wednesday he is trying to increase fan interest and convince NHL officials that Hartford is a viable market. League officials might be the toughest sell. NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said Tuesday that he couldn’t foresee another Whalers team in Hartford. Baldwin says his new campaign includes a “Whalers Hockey Fest” that will feature as many as 20 outdoor games at the University of Connecticut’s football stadium. The Whalers left Connecticut in 1997 and moved to North Carolina, where they became the Carolina Hurricanes.

Tax credits fuel April home sales WASHINGTON (AP) — A rush of homebuyers aiming to meet a deadline to qualify for a federal tax credit pushed the number of signed sales contracts to the highest level since October. The National Association of Realtors said Wednesday its seasonally adjusted index of sales agreements for previously occupied homes rose 6 percent in April from a month earlier to a reading of 110.9. March’s reading was revised upward to 104.6. The rise marked the third consecutive month of increases, all of them aided by federal tax credits of up to $8,000. But the tax credits expired on April 30. Many an-



Unemployment drops in 90% of metro areas WASHINGTON (AP) — Unemployment rates fell in April for more than 90 percent of the nation’s 372 largest metro areas as hiring picked up around the country. The Labor Department says the jobless rate dropped in 346 areas last month. It rose in only 12 and remained flat in 14. That’s much better than March, when unemployment fell in 257 areas and rose in 89.

Oil prices climb as jobs report looms NEW YORK (AP) — Oil prices rose on Wednesday as investors began to place bets ahead of Friday’s monthly jobs report that figures to provide fresh clues about the strength of the rebounding economy. At the same time, gas prices across the country continued a slow slide toward levels not seen since a year ago. Benchmark crude for July delivery climbed 90 cents at $73.48 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

World merchandise trade soars 25% GENEVA (AP) — World merchandise trade soared 25 percent in year-on-year value over the first three months of 2010, the World Trade Organization said Wednesday, in another sign of robust recovery from last year’s record contraction in international commerce. The figures build on the turnaround that gained speed in the second half 2009, and show a steep rise in trade in March — with the end of the slowdown period when many businesses in the Northern Hemisphere stop running at peak capacity.


alysts expect sales to drop in the coming months. Even though mortgage rates are near record lows and home prices have declined dramatically, potential buyers are unlikely to act if they don’t have jobs or fear that their jobs are in jeopardy. “Clearly, the race to meet the tax credit deadline has left the home-buying pipeline rather empty, and we fear that still high unemployment, heavy indebtedness and tight credit will mean that it stays that way,” wrote Paul Dales, U.S. economist with Capital Economics. Evidence of a slowing market was apparent Wednesday when the Mortgage Bankers Association released a weekly report

on applications to purchase homes. Applications fell for the fourth-straight week to the lowest level since April 1997. Plus, foreclosures are still at extraordinary levels, which is likely to push down home prices in the second half of the year. Investors, however, seemed pleased with the April rise in pending home sales. The Dow Jones industrial average rose more than 60 points in early trading. Some analysts are less fearful than others. Ian Shepherdson, chief U.S. economist at High Frequency Economics, wrote that he expects “a gentle recovery once the plunge following the end of the tax credit is over.”

GM sales rise 17 percent DETROIT (AP) — Strong demand for new models and higher fleet sales lifted General Motors Co.’s sales 17 percent in May. The improvement, over a dismal May of last year as GM was headed into bankruptcy protection, was a sign that automakers are benefiting from a weak but improving economy. Consumers even shrugged off an 8 percent decline in the stock market to buy more cars and trucks. GM was the first automaker to report U.S. sales Wednesday, and the whole industry is expected to show a double-

digit increase over last May, when Chrysler was in bankruptcy protection and GM was nearing it. One key factor for automakers in May was the long Memorial Day weekend — a key selling period that can account for half of all sales for the month. Paul Taylor, chief economist with the National Automobile Dealers Association, said good weather and a weak Memorial Day last year — which came just a day before GM filed for bankruptcy protection — helped make sales comparatively stronger during last weekend’s holiday.

BP shares rebound after broad selloff NEW YORK (AP) — Investors on Wednesday cautiously returned to BP PLC and some of its partners in the failed deepwater well that’s spewing millions of gallons of crude into the Gulf of Mexico. Shares of BP, Halliburton Co., Cameron International Corp. and Anadarko Petroleum Corp. all rebounded in afternoon trading following a broad sell-off, including a 15 percent drop in BP stock, on Tuesday. Shares for rig owner Transocean Ltd. continued to slide. The jump did little to stop what has been a deep plunge in BP’s value since the April 20 oil spill. The British oil giant is still worth $73 billion less on the open market since the Deepwater Horizon rig exploded. The ruptured well has gushed between 20 mil-

lion and 43 million gallons of crude into the Gulf, and experts say the cleanup, fines and lawsuits could eventually cost BP tens of billions of dollars. Halliburton, which was in charge of sealing the well before it ruptured, led the rebound after the oil services company told investors it hasn’t lost any work because of its ties to the Gulf oil spill. Tim Probert, Halliburton’s global business president also said deepwater drilling activity likely will recover in the Gulf in the next year or two. Probert added that drilling activity in international waters has seen a “modest impact” as countries ask operators to ensure the safety of blowout preventers and other equipment.

Stocks rebound on housing news NEW YORK (AP) — The stock market rebounded Wednesday following a stronger-than-expected increase in pending home sales and a recovery in shares of energy companies. The Dow Jones industrial average rose about 226 points, its third biggest gain of 2010. Major indexes recovered the losses they suffered Tuesday shortly before the close, when the government announced criminal and civil investigations into the Gulf oil spill. Energy stocks bounced back sharply after selling off the day before. Schlumberger, which provides services to oil companies, rose more than 8 percent, while Baker Hughes gained more than 10 percent. The upbeat report on home sales provided some hope on the nation’s housing market. An increase in signed contracts for homes was due partly to a rush to meet a tax credit that expired in April. The Dow rose 225.52, or 2.3 percent, to 10,249.54 after falling 235 points in the two previous days. Wednesday’s climb was the biggest point and percentage climb for the Dow since Thursday, when the index advanced 285 points, or 2.9 percent. The index is still down 8.5 percent from its high this year on April 26. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 27.67, or 2.6 percent, to 1,098.38, while the Nasdaq composite index climbed 58.74, or 2.6 percent, to 2,281.07.

AT&T caps phone data usage

NEW YORK (AP) – AT&T Inc. will stop letting new customers sign up for its unlimited Internet data plan for smart phones and iPads, hoping to ease congestion on its network by charging the people who use the most data more. The move comes just in time for the expected unveiling of Apple Inc.’s new iPhone next week. Current subscribers will be able to keep their $30-per-month unlimited plans, even if they renew their contracts. But starting Monday, new customers will have to choose one of two new data plans for all smart phones, including iPhones and BlackBerrys. With the change, AT&T is adopting a carrot-and-stick approach to assuage the data congestion on its network, which has been a source of complaints, especially in cities such as New York and San Francisco that are thick with iPhone users.

Subscribers who use little data or learn to limit their consumption will pay slightly less every month than they do now, while heavy users will be dinged with extra consumption fees. Analysts said they expect the move to be quickly followed by other phone companies, which should be eager to avoid the trap of unlimited-use data plans. With no caps on consumption, data use could swamp wireless networks while revenue for the operators remains flat. “Clearly, the current unlimited data usage model in the U.S. market is not profitable in the long term,” said David Dixon at FBR Capital Markets. Verizon Wireless, the largest wireless carrier and AT&T’s chief rival, had no immediate comment on AT&T’s move. There has been much speculation about Verizon getting to sell its own version of the iPhone, but that prospect still appears distant.

Buffett defends rating agencies NEW YORK (AP) – Billionaire investor Warren Buffett said few could have predicted the depth of the housing crisis and that CEOs of rating agencies shouldn’t be fired for missing the warning signs. “They made the wrong the call,” Buffett said of the agencies inaccurate ratings of mortgage-related investments. But Buffett said he counted himself among those who failed to see the downturn coming. He called it the “greatest bubble” he had ever seen. “The entire American public was caught up in a belief that housing prices

could not fall dramatically,” Buffett told a congressionally chartered panel investigating the financial crisis. Had he known how bad it would get, Buffett said he would have sold his company’s stake in Moody’s. Buffett is testifying before Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission alongside Moody’s Corp. CEO Raymond McDaniel. Buffett’s investment firm is Moody’s largest shareholder. Rating agencies have been criticized for giving high ratings to complex investments backed by risky mortgages. When homeowners defaulted,

the agencies downgraded billions of dollars of investments at once. That helped spark the financial crisis. Lawmakers have accused the industry of having a conflict of interest because the agencies are paid by the banks whose investments they rate. McDaniel told the panel that “Moody’s is certainly not satisfied with the performance of these ratings” and is taking steps to improve its rating process. Still, McDaniel says in prepared testimony that investors should use ratings as a tool, “not a buy, sell or hold recommendation.”
