Spill in Gulf causes concerns for local vacationers, travel agencies BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – The BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico may not be an immediate concern for someone who lives hundreds of miles away, but some local travel agencies are warning clients that have plans along the Gulf Coast and East Coast that the spill could spoil their summer vacations. A model released yesterday by the National Center for Atmospheric Research shows that oil from the spill soon could begin to travel up the East Coast, making its way to the North Carolina Coast as soon as late July. While the model is only an example of what could happen rather than what will happen, according to the NCAR, Pamela Seagle, owner of Travel Leaders on Eastchester Drive in High Point, has warned some of her clients travel-

Main Street, said most of

her clients vacation at North Carolina beaches or more tropical destinations in the Caribbean. No clients have made plans to travel to the Gulf Coast this year, she said, but the fact that the oil could reach the North Carolina coast this summer is cause for some concern. “It hasn’t yet been a problem for us, but if they’re saying oil is going to reach our beaches, I think people will start to get concerned,” she said. While there are other global events that could have some effect on travel this summer, such as a drug war in parts of Mexico and Jamaica, the oil spill has caused the biggest travel woes of the season, Seagle said. “The oil spill is causing us the most worry,” she said. “It may cause more worry toward the end of the summer if the spill continues to spread.” | 888-3617

TRIAD – School officials in the Triad have no plans of dropping high school graduation projects for seniors, even though the N.C. Senate may pass legislation to remove it as a requirement for seniors to graduate. The state House voted this week in favor of a measure that would ban the projects as a prerequisite for graduation statewide. Last year, the Legislature approved a one-year delay in implementing the statewide requirement until 2012. Schools systems in Thomasville and Randolph and Davidson counties have required students to complete graduation projects. Not all high schools in Guilford County require senior projects, said Barbara Zwadyk, the system’s chief curriculum and organizational development officer. Rep. Hugh Holliman, D-Davidson and House majority leader, said the bill, which now goes to the Senate, gives districts the option to require the projects. Holliman said he voted for the bill because a committee found no relationship between the graduation projects and the classroom. The House’s decision followed a recommendation by the Legislature’s watchdog committee after its researchers found no evidence the projects improve student education and would cost more than $6 million to carry out. Sandi Lee, assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction for Davidson County Schools, said the school system would continue to support graduation projects as a local option. She said the graduation projects are North Carolina’s “most real-world assessment” for high school seniors. “It kind of mirrors what we need to be doing in terms of 21st century skills,” Lee said. “We certainly support the graduation project as a local option and will continue to do so.” Donald Andrews, superintendent for Randolph County Schools, said system officials have been pleased with the requirement. “We feel like our students get a lot out of the senior project the way we are doing it,” Andrews said. “Our tentative plans are that we are going to continue it. We have a nice system in place that is educationally sound.” As part of their projects, seniors have rebuilt car engines, studied cake baking and learned how to play the guitar, Andrews said, adding that mentors assist students with the project. After they finish the project, seniors present their project to a panel of various people from the community. Zwadyk said it’s a “moot point” for Guilford County Schools if the Senate does pass the bill because the system would continue to allow high schools to choose if they would like to have senior projects.

County restores some arts funding ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

GUILFORD COUNTY – The Guilford County Board of Commissioners on Thursday passed a 2011 county budget that restores more money to arts and libraries while holding the tax rate at its current level. The budget passed by a 9-2 vote, with commissioners Paul Gibson and Billy Yow voting against the proposal. County Manager Brenda Jones-Fox originally had proposed a $568.9 million budget, $17.2 mil-

lion less than the current budget, that included controversial cuts, including $435,000 from arts and community groups and the elimination of $55,000 for the Gibsonville town library. Gibsonville officials had said the county’s proposed cut may force the closing of the library. The budget passed on Thursday added $1.1 million to Fox’s original proposal, restoring the money to the Gibsonville library and Greensboro library system and increasing funding for the

High Point and Greensboro arts councils. It also adds $400,000 for the Guilford Adult Health Program, a medical service for the needy. Commissioners Paul Gibson, John Parks and Kirk Perkins expressed strong reservations about cutting money for the arts, showing up at one earlier budget session wearing badges reading “Arts Create Jobs.” Gibson also wore a “Library Supporter” sticker on his lapel. The money was added to the budget by taking

money contingency funds and shifting some money from an economic incentive plan. The property tax rate stays at 73.74 cents per $100 of assessed value, meaning the owner of a $100,000 house would pay $737.40 for the year. Jones-Fox has said it’s been “a tough budget in these difficult times,” adding that “no tax increase was the goal.” County revenues in 2011 are projected to drop $8.1 million, including an $891,000 drop in property tax revenue.

NC House gives final budget OK; negotiations ahead RALEIGH (AP) – The state House completed work early Friday on its version of the North Carolina government budget for next year that emphasized public schools and small businesses but chose to wait until later on how to handle a potential $500 million shortfall if extra Medicaid money doesn’t materialize. The House voted 63-49 in favor of the $18.9 billion budget shortly after midnight. It came after a long day Thursday when the chamber debated for more than six hours and considered more than 30 amendments before giving the plan initial approval by a narrower margin. Friday’s session was over in less than 10 min-

utes with no debate. The state constitution required two votes on separate days because some annual taxes were being renewed. The votes mean House Democrats will start working next week to eliminate budget differences with counterparts in the Senate who approved its own budget two weeks ago. The Senate plan focused on protecting the University of North Carolina system. The House emphasized public schools. Both chambers gave tax breaks to small business, although by different methods. Negotiators want to get a final budget to Democratic Gov. Beverly Perdue’s desk before the new fiscal year begins July 1.

SC slaying may have been hate crime


NEWBERRY, S.C. (AP) – The shooting death of a black man whose body was dragged for several miles is being investigated as a possible hate crime after the arrest of a white man he worked with, South Carolina’s state police chief said. Gregory Collins, 19, is charged with murder and made his first court appearance Thursday. No bond was set and he did not yet have an attorney, Newberry County Magistrate Ron Halfacre said.

The FBI was in Newberry County in central South Carolina on Wednesday Collins assisting in the investigation of the shooting death of Anthony Hill, 30, State Law Enforcement Division director Reggie Lloyd told The State newspaper. “We don’t yet have a definitive motive for all this,” Lloyd said.

Hill’s body was found around 4:30 a.m. Wednesday on U.S. Highway 176 and Newberry County sheriff’s deputies followed a trail of blood from Hill’s body back to Collins’ mobile home. For several hours, Collins refused to come out and SLED agents fired tear gas into the home, prompting him to surrender, Lloyd said. Collins was not armed when he was arrested, but Newberry County Sheriff Lee Foster said he had an empty

pistol holster on his side. Hill died from a single gunshot wound to the head, Newberry County Coroner Craig Newton said. Hill was dead before he was dragged, according to deputies. Hill and Collins worked together at a chicken processing plant in Newberry County, Lloyd said. Neither man had a serious criminal record. There was some other evidence that linked the men that Lloyd did not want to discuss.

Owners to demolish Presbyterian Homes ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

COLFAX – After many months of attempting to sell the Presbyterian Home property on Greensboro Road “as is,” a decision has been made to demolish all structures on the property and attempt to sell the land. The property consists of 18.394 acres. Additionally, the River Landing at Sandy Ridge/The Presbyterian Home of High Point Board of Trustees and The Presbyterian Homes Inc. Board of Governors, meeting jointly, gave management the approval to negotiate the sale of 40 dually certified skilled nursing bed licenses to another provider. The Presbyterian Home of High

Point community was opened on Jan. 21, 1952. Over 58 years, it was expanded to one point serving 300 residents. The Board of Trustees Disposition Committee has been working on finding a buyer for the property since June 30, 2005, the date in which the board made the decision to close The Presbyterian Home of High Point and expand its River Landing at Sandy Ridge community in order to accommodate the remaining residents at the Presbyterian Home campus. This relocation process was completed in November 2009. Over the course of the nearly five-year period since June 30, 2005, there have been several potential buyers, but none were able to close on the property, a spokesman said.

Potential buyers haven’t been able to secure financing in the current economic environment. The Presbyterian Homes Inc. will begin work immediately to plan for the demolition of the property and find a buyer for its licensed skilled nursing beds. The Presbyterian Homes, Inc., located at 1912 Eastchester Drive in High Point, is a church-related, nonprofit community service organization that develops, manages and operates three continuing care retirement communities in North Carolina. Its communities consist of River Landing at Sandy Ridge in High Point; Scotia Village in Laurinburg; and Glenaire in Cary. It serves over 1,100 residents and has more than 650 employees.

Death toll at 117 from Bangladesh fire DHAKA, Bangladesh – An electrical explosion plunged a neighborhood of Bangladesh’s capital in darkness and ignited a shop of flammable chemicals, creating a massive inferno that killed at least 117 – including 15 members of a wedding party – and injured more than 100 others. The country’s worst fire in recent memory began Thursday night in the narrow alleys of the old section of Dhaka, crammed with new additions to decades-old buildings, when an electrical transformer exploded soon after a rainstorm swept the city.

The devices aim to prevent a repeat of the five-day shutdown of European airspace in April caused by an erupting Icelandic volcano that affected 10 million passengers worldwide.

BP’s mistakes shouldn’t drive energy policy For all the environmental damage that will result from the continuing oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, the ecology may not be the most serious casualty of the accident. It is all too likely, with an administration in Washington that was hostile to fossil fuels even before the explosion on the Deepwater Horizon, that prospects for a rational energy policy may have sunk along with the drilling platform. President Obama is already using this event to promote his expensive and counterproductive green energy agenda. If the tragic accident contributes to halting domestic oil exploration and enacting cap-and-trade or other carbon-based energy taxes, the impact will be far more costly and lasting than the damage to the Gulf ecosystem. The ongoing disaster in the Gulf of Mexico is a harsh reminder that all human activity involves risk. Regardless of opposition to oil from environmentalists and the president, the cold reality is that there is no practical substitute now or in the foreseeable future. Restrictions on domestic exploration and production only serve to make America more dependent on imported oil and more vulnerable to interruptions in supplies from countries that may seek to advance their own interests by harming ours. Recent news reports suggest



that BP, the operator of the ill-fated offshore platform, had cause to suspect trouble well before the explosion. The company promotes itself as “Beyond Petroleum,” and its dismal safety record in the past few years indicates we might all be better served if oil were left to others who still appreciate the importance of black gold to the modern world. If BP’s mistakes are allowed to influence energy policy, we will only compound an error rather than solve a problem. DON DAVIS Archdale

Comparative fault bill makes sense News & Observer of Raleigh, May 28 North Carolina shares a dubious distinction with Alabama, Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia. It is one of only five legal jurisdictions in the U.S. that recognize contributory negligence. That term means that when a person is in an accident that is overwhelmingly not his or her fault, that person cannot recover damages in a suit if it is found he or she in any small way might have contributed to the accident. That’s why insurance companies love it. It gets them off the hook if one of their clients is at fault but can show that the other person, the victim, might have been even a little bit negligent. The insurance industry is campaigning hard to preserve contributory negligence in North Carolina, as it fears a state Housepassed bill that would institute another system in courts known as comparative fault. Under that system, victims could recover damages even if they were slightly to blame. They might not get what they would recover if they had been totally in the clear, but they could get something, depending on how the fault was allocated. Insurers are arguing that the change would cost consumers. They’d have to raise premiums, don’t you know, if they were exposed to awarding more damages. Better to keep a bad system that protects them in place. Lawmakers should not be fooled and state senators should not bow to interests of an industry against consumers. They haven’t everywhere, as evidenced by the fact that overwhelmingly, other states recognize the good sense of comparative fault. Give the insurance lobby this: It has successfully fought off a more enlightened policy virtually forever. It has kept North Carolina in that tiny minority while managing to keep consumers at a disadvantage, all the while telling them the current policy is for their own good. It’s time to quit buying the bad policy the industry has been selling.

There is too much negativity in the world. Many people don’t stand for anything, and some seem to be against everything. Thinking allows us to find main arguments and to prepare our cases. Yet, always working for an antithesis creates contrary human beings. Often, we are against an idea for the sake of being opponents. We have been taught that “intelligence” involves being disagreeable. We become willing rebels, filled with anger and meanness. Frequent detractors might make their points well, but I am not sure they are happy people. They are likely to dispute for wreckage only. They are likely to argue to score points. As I grow older, the more conventional I become. Reform interests me but so does the deserving status quo. If it isn’t broken, leave it alone. Habit becomes more important to me. I like things to run smoothly and quietly. I don’t want to be a naysayer for the sake of “no.” I want to support most institutions and traditions; they are the true cement of the country. As I grow older, I more fully support the military and respect the sacrifices that are made to protect our nation’s way of life. I also affirm international organizations, diplomacy, and peace.

I believe in the power of government to affect lives. I affirm that government is a source of good. In a democracy, government is comprised of the people. The people rule America with their opinions and votes. Every time OPINION citizens go to the polls, they demonstrate authority under Kristine our system. Kaiser I believe in the public schools, ■■■ of learning among people of different races, creeds, and socioeconomic backgrounds. Public schools are America’s great gift to its entire people. I believe in the universities, where young people learn careers and professions. Students must sift through information and theories and find what is important to their lives. They must learn that they can construct as well as deconstruct ideas. They can build, even as others tear down. Universities are solid foundations for society and are positive models. I value churches and God’s ability to change people’s lives for the better. I suggest that outreach programs serve the needy and are a boon to the community. The churches try to improve people’s souls, and so then lift up the common lot. With age, I am for religions. Stand for something instead of constantly being the opposition, the contrary perspective. Let’s say what counts and find our heroes; they are necessary. Citizens must sometimes reject the hard critical state of mind and be impressed with the goodness and merit that surrounds them. We sometimes must simply appreciate America’s bounty without fault. KRISTINE KAISER lives in Kernersville.

Ways to Forgive T


here are many ways to forgive. Those blessed with short memories and forgiving hearts may be able to "forgive and forget." But, most of us cannot easily do this, and we must make a conscious effort to forgive. One way to do this is to talk frankly to the person we are struggling to forgive, telling them what is bothering us, and hoping that a kindly discussion will lead to an understanding and forgiveness by both parties. Another way to forgive is to ask for divine intervention. There are times when it is not humanly possible Bearing with one another, to forgive others, and they may and forgiving one not legitimately deserve to be another, if anyone has a forgiven. If someone has killed complaint against one of our family members it another; even as Christ may not be possible on our own forgave you, so you also to forgive them, but God may be must do. able to bring about a change of heart. We may not even want to New K.J.V. Colossians 3:13 forgive the person in this case, but may realize that our life is being destroyed by hatred and anger. Often times, asking for God's help is the only way to forgive. Whatever our situation, if we are finding it difficult to forgive someone, we should keep in mind that God wants us to forgive others as He forgives us. 546925

Denominations split during restless times O

important in the South. Nevertheless, although members of the denomination could have slaves, the clergy could not. The split centered on Bishop James O. Andrew of Georgia. He was made STUDYING a bishop in 1832 at a THE CHURCH time when he did not own slaves. Eventually, though, Andrew married Mark a woman who owned Nickens a slave, making him a â&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  slave owner. In 1844, Andrew traveled to New York for the annual General Conference of the MEC. While there some northern bishops raised the issue of Andrew being a slave owner. Eventually a vote was taken concerning this issue: 136 voted for separation, 15 voted against it. The northerners retained the MEC name whereas the southerners became known as the MEC (South). â&#x20AC;˘ Baptists. The first national gathering of Baptists in the country was at the Triennial Convention in 1814.

ne characteristic of a Protestant denomination is that they can change: sometimes one denomination will split into two denominations or sometimes two or more denominations join to form one larger denomination. One exceptionally tumultuous time in America saw three of the largest denominations split â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Methodists, Baptists, and Presbyterians in the period from 1844-1861. If you remember history class, that was just prior to the Civil War starting in 1861. These three (partly) split over the same issue over which the country (partly) split: slavery. The Methodists split in 1844, the Baptists in 1845, and the Presbyterians in 1857. And how did they split? You guessed it: they split into the northern branch and the southern branch of each denomination. â&#x20AC;˘ Methodists. [Originally, the Methodist movement in America was known as the Methodist Episcopal Church (MEC). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Episcopalâ&#x20AC;? was dropped in 1939.] The MEC, founded in 1784, opposed slavery. Over time that view changed as slavery became more

Just as with the later Methodists, the northern Baptists were against slavery whereas the southern Baptists were

Three of the largest denominations split â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Methodists, Baptists, and Presbyterians in the period from 1844-1861. for slavery. Once again the group held together until slavery became an issue. The Georgia Baptists recommended that James E. Reeve, a slaveholder, become a missionary. The northern Baptists balked at the idea of a slaveholding missionary and declined to appoint him. Southern Baptists gathered in Augusta, Georgia in 1845 and formed, you guessed it, the Southern Baptist Convention. â&#x20AC;˘ Presbyterians. Unlike the Methodists and Baptists, the Presbyterian split did not center on an individual

but the idea of slavery itself. As early as 1787, the Synod of New York and Philadelphia had suggested that slaves be freed. The Presbyterians split in 1837 into Old School and New School Presbyterians over the issue of how to incorporate new ideas into the synods and churches (New School wanting to use new ideas, and Old School rejecting them). Slavery was one issue and the division was mainly between northern Presbyterians â&#x20AC;&#x201C; dominated by the New School group â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and southern Presbyterians â&#x20AC;&#x201C; dominated by the Old School group. Eventually the New School Presbyterians (in the north) split over the issue of slavery in 1857, with the Old School Presbyterians splitting in 1861 (in the South). In all three denominations, other issues contributed to the splits, but slavery was the straw that broke the camelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back in each case. QUESTIONS/COMMENTS contact Mark at

Wedding success for the long haul K

itty and I were married in June, the fourth day, four-thirty oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;clock on a Saturday afternoon. It was a blissful day and the wedding was beautiful. Everything seemed to be perfect, just as Kitty had meticulously planned it. My future mother-in-law, Sara Harshbarger, made the brideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exquisite wedding gown, the gowns for the three attendants and for the flower girl, Kittyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sister, Stephanie, who was five at the time. It was all so perfect in every detail. Could anything possibly go wrong? We did not think so and as far as we know, nothing did. We were two unlikely people to be marrying each other. Our backgrounds and occupations were so different. Why do some perfect marriages finally crash, some within a few years, others 10, 20, or 40 years later? What keeps a

marriage improving with the passing years? It is not uncommon to read or SHARING hear of the perfect marTHE SPIRIT riage coming apart at Bill the seams Ellis and finally â&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  being torn to shreds. It happens to politicians, business leaders, top athletes in every sport, pastors, editors, doctors, coal miners, educators, carpenters, truck drivers, professors and among those who rise to the top and to the crowds whose marriages and lives exist in shambles at the bottom of the pile. Nobody is exempt. If a marriage and a family are to be successfully

held together, the building blocks must be painstakingly put together and laid on a solid foundation. The ideal marriage may be made in heaven, but it must be lived on earth with all its problems and filth. How can we do it? Remember the attraction and love that brought you together in the first place. It can be strengthened and repaired. Losing a few pounds might help. You may have looked forward to the night of the wedding when you finally could sleep together. Do so every night as long as you live. Continue doing the things for each other you did during the courtship months and years that were so appealing and impressive. Such things as personal cleanliness, neatness, being a lady and a gentleman, opening doors, holding the chair as your

ladylove is being seated. Remembering to say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;thank you,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;pleaseâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sorryâ&#x20AC;? are still in vogue for those whom you love. I always feel good inside when Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done something nice and Kitty sweetly says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thank you,â&#x20AC;? with a twinkle in her eye and a smile on her lips. More of us should choose an idyllic lifestyle. Live in a more peaceful, pastoral, rustic, simple and romantic manner. Wanting too much too quickly has spoiled many a marriage. Do not live beyond your income. Seek to live in the will of God. The Bible, among other things, is a romantic book that teaches more about love, sex, families and success than any book

I have ever read. If you have any doubts, take the 30-day test. Read it carefully for an hour each day for 30 days. You will have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Among the hundreds of verses in the Bible that speak of successful marriages, these two are in the book of Ephesians 5:28, 23: â&#x20AC;&#x153;So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself.â&#x20AC;? And, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nevertheless let each one of you in particular so love his own wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.â&#x20AC;? Here is the key that unlocks the door to marital happiness and success, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Love never failsâ&#x20AC;? (I Corinthians 13:8). American

poet, Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-82) wrote about love: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our highest word, and the synonym of God.â&#x20AC;? Marriage has worked for us for many years and gets more exciting all the time. BILL ELLIS, P. O. Box 345, Scott Depot, WV 25560 | (304) 7576089

Kersey Valley to add zip line course



Guilford County Board of Education Chairman Alan Duncan received a 2010 Leadership Medal awarded from Leadership Greensboro. Duncan, an attorney at Smith Moore Leatherwood, has served on the school board for the last 10 years, working in a leadership capacity as chairman for the last eight years.


HIGH POINT – Kersey Valley Inc. is known for spooking its guests on Halloween, sending them through a spiraling corn maze in the fall and enchanting them with lights at Christmas. Now, it hopes to zip them through the trees as well. The company, which operates the seasonal Spookywoods, Maize Adventure and Kersey Valley Christmas attractions, received approval from Guilford County officials Friday to begin construction on a zip line course on its property. The zip line course still is in its beginning stages, but it could be more than one and a half miles long, according to current plans. Tony Wohlgemuth, company president, announced the new venture this week in an e-mail to the company’s online fan club. He said he hopes to open the zip line along with the Maize Adventure that opens each fall because the course will fly guests through the trees of the corn maze. The zip line could remain open year-round, pending special permit requirements. There are some requirements and technicalities that the company must navigate through to finish the project, he said. “..There is a slow process to get the approval of special permits, which may extend our opening,” he said. “We have only cleared the pathways for the zip line so far. We are also building permanent bathrooms and using 14 towers (to construct the course), which is a massive task.” Summey Engineering in Asheboro will design the towers used to build the course, and tower construction is set to begin June 13. The towers themselves may make the zip line unique to the area, he said. “Unlike most zip line tours that use trees, we are using the engineered poles to construct the course,” he said. The course also will be built according to the guidelines of the Association of Challenge Course Technology, and staff will be certified yearly to operate it. It will be open to the general public, but it could also be used for corporate team-building programs, Wohlgemuth said. The nearest zip line in operation is the Richland Creek and Canopy Tour Zip Line in Asheboro near the N.C. Zoo. It opened in 2008. | 888-3617

Complete list of graduates. 2D


GREENSBORO – With words of encouragement to hold steadfast to their dreams and to give thanks to those who helped them make it this far, Ragsdale High School’s class of 2010 turned the tassels on their graduation caps and took a major step into adulthood Friday night. Commencement exercises for Ragsdale’s 309 graduating seniors were held at the Greensboro Coliseum Special Events Center. After Duke Universitybound senior class president Edward Denzell Faison told his fellow graduates to “remember to hold to your dreams, for they will illuminate the path to your destiny” and not to give in to apathy or despair in the face of doubt-

ers, Guilford County Board of Education Chairman Alan Duncan presented honor awards to the two graduates with the top academic records in the class. Valedictorian Minshu Deng, who carried a GPA of 5.36, told

‘Our unique experiences up until now have shaped who we are, but what counts is what we do now.’ Minshu Deng Valedictorian her classmates it was important to acknowledge the work of teachers, administrators, parents and others who had helped prepare them for the future. “Yes, the problems of the world are bigger than us, but

that doesn’t mean they’re beyond our control,” said Deng, who also plans to attend Duke. “The class of 2010 is a very diverse body of young adults with different goals. Our unique experiences up until now have shaped who we are, but what counts is what we do now.” Salutatorian Emily Jean Bingham, with a GPA of 5.17, encouraged classmates to not let others define success for them. “Our feet have touched stepping stone after stepping stone in the stream of time. The fact that we are here today proves that no stepping stone was too great to overcome,” said Bingham, who is bound for the University of Tennessee in the fall and plans to study architecture. “Here we are with smiles on our faces. Smiles for whatever comes next – college, jobs or the military, but not before this weekend and summer beach trips.” 888-3531

DOT installs sidewalks along E. Lexington Project includes work on greenway trail BY JORDAN HOWSE ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – High Point residents can see federal stimulus dollars hard at work on Lexington Avenue near Wiltshire Street. Darrell Ferguson, resident engineer for the North Carolina Department of Transportation, said the Lexington Avenue sidewalk project was requested by the city and is being funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act stimulus funding package from the federal government to the state of North Carolina Ferguson said the Lexing-

Workers from the N.C. Department of Transportation, under contract by the city of High Point, pour concrete sidewalks along E. Lexington Avenue, near the intersection with Wiltshire Street. ton Avenue sidewalk project will cost $99,200. He said he expects the sidewalk to be completed around June 20. There are no current plans for the state to con-

struct more sidewalks in the High Point area. The city, however, wants to put in more sidewalks. “We have a number of sidewalk plans, but there

isn’t any city funding for them at this time,” said Mark McDonald, director of transportation in High Point. The city hopes the construction of these sidewalks will limit the number of people walking or biking in the street and accidents involving pedestrians and bikers. Keith Pugh with the High Point Engineering Department said he believes the DOT started with these particular projects because they are near schools. Pugh said High Point likes to put sidewalks near the schools to keep children that walk to and from school out of the street. In addition to the sidewalk construction on E. Lexington Avenue near Wiltshire


Street, a greenway trail and sidewalk are being built on Deep River Road near Eastchester Drive. The DOT has several plans to widen roads to multiple lanes in High Point, including Surrett Drive from Eden Terrace to Market Center Drive and E. Fairfield Road from S. Main Street to Liberty Street. A highway project starting in 2013 on Skeet Club Road from east of Johnson Street to west of Eastchester Drive is estimated to cost $31.7 billion. Other projects in the area are traffic studies bridge and gutter replacements and improvements to I-40, US 311, and other highways near High Point. | 888-3537

GREENSBORO – TIMCO Aviation Services said Friday it wants to expand its California-based aircraft seat manufacturing business, a move that could bring 300 jobs to the Triad. Kip Blakely, TIMCO’s vice president of sales and marketing, said the company is considering numerous other sites to grow Brice Seating, a

Pacoima, Calif., firm it bought six years ago. Brice makes seats for commercial airlines and military planes and currently employs 225 people. The expansion would be the first for the company. Blakely said TIMCO could expand at its California site, but is also considering options in Alabama, Georgia and at least six locations in North Carolina. “We literally have

looked west to east and are still looking,” Blakely said. “It’s a great opportunity for our company. We very much want to bring the jobs to North Carolina.” He added: “We have to look for the most competitive community to expand this business. We are not asking for incentives, but in every state there are incentives available.” Blakely could not provide details about TIM-

CO’s pay scale, saying that depends on where the company decides to locate. He said the company plans to begin hiring for the new jobs in the fourth quarter of this year. The majority would be manufacturing positions. “We have orders on the books for 2011 that we need to fill,” he said. Blakely would not provide specifics about the other Tarheel sites under consideration.

Durham police get OK to exhume murdered woman’s body MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

DURHAM – Police plan to dig up the body of a woman buried in Pennsylvania as they pursue a murder case against her husband. The Durham Police Department and the Durham County District Attorney’s Office have received permission from Janet Christiansen Abaroa’s family to exhume her body. Raven Abaroa is charged with firstdegree murder in her 2005 stabbing. An autopsy report showed Janet Abaroa was pregnant

and died of a neck wound that pierced an artery and lung. The 25-year-old was found in a kneeling position in her bedroom at 2606 Ferrand Drive the night of April 26, 2005. She was 25. Her 6-month-old son Kaiden was in another room, unharmed. There were no obvious signs of a break-in, but a laptop computer was missing from the house. This February police in Idaho arrested Raven Abaroa, 30, at his home in Montpelier. The charges came nearly five years after the murder. Months into the investigation family and friends paid for a psychic to assist police.

Police Chief Jose Lopez Sr. has said Abaroa’s arrest came because investigators continued to follow leads with help from the FBI and State Bureau of Investigation. In the hours before her death, Janet Abaroa, who was in the early stages of pregnancy, picked up her child at day care and went with her husband to drop her car off for repairs. The Abaroas met with a church member at their home that evening before Raven Abaroa left the house around 8:30 p.m. in a gray Dodge Durango to play in an indoor soccer game in Morrisville. Raven Abaroa told officers he

found his wife when he returned home from the game around 11 p.m. Raven and Janet Abaroa met at Southern Virginia University in Buena Vista, Va., where Janet Abaroa was a midfielder for the soccer team. Friends said they were happy, but before Janet Abaroa’s death, the couple was troubled. Both worked at Eurosport, a sporting goods company in Hillsborough, and left their jobs in January 2005 after Hillsborough police charged Raven with embezzling more than $9,000 from the company, according to arrest warrants.

Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plenty to love about groundcover roses I

f you have tried growing hybrid roses and come to the conclusion that â&#x20AC;&#x153;everything is not a bed of roses,â&#x20AC;? maybe you should try the new Drift Groundcover roses introduced by the nursery which introduced the Knock Out Family of Roses, ConradPyle Star Roses. Since introducing probably the most famous rose in the United States, the Peace Rose in 1945, this company has been hybridizing roses that are real winners with gardeners. The Knock Out Family of Roses is probably the most disease-resistant family of roses on the U.S. market today. Drift roses are billed as virtually maintenance free with great resistance to rust, powdery mildew and black spot. They are marketed as the next big thing for small gardens. With seven varieties introduced, they are bred

to bloom from spring to frost on naturally dwarf plants. With their low growth habit, the roses are perfect for borders, rock gardens, planted so they cascade over garden ECOLOGY walls, hillsides or in large drifts in the sun. Gwyn The company recomRiddick mends that the plants be â&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  regularly dead-headed to keep the roses blooming and to prune them back to four inches in the spring after the last hard frost. According to Conrad-Pyle, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Drift Roses are a cross between full-size groundcover roses and miniatures. From the former they kept toughness, disease resistance and winter hardiness. From the miniatures, they inherited their

well-managed size and repeat-blooming nature.â&#x20AC;? Each of the seven varieties is billed to grow about 1-2 feet tall and spread 23 feet wide. Colors available so far are white, apricot, pink, red, peach, coral and light pink. The flowers are fully double, in clusters held above glossy green foliage. Two important care practices for all roses to keep them blooming is to fertilize them regularly with a good grade of rose fertilizer and follow package directions. Also, prune off the old blooms and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t discard them around the plants, but remove them from the garden to lessen chance of disease. Of course, during dry periods, be sure to keep the plants well watered so they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wilt and try not to wet the foliage during watering near sundown.

ear Abby: Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m working on a school project with several other girls, but I have an issue with one of them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Saraâ&#x20AC;? wanted to write the paper for our project, which is a huge part of our grade. Once she started writing it, we all realized she wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t very good at it. I felt I could do a better job, and asked if I could do it instead â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or help critique and edit it. Sara refuses. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to start a fight or anything, but this is a large part of my grade, and the project is being entered in a contest that I really want to win. Is there a way I can get her to let me help, or should I just let it go? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Really Wants To Win in Ohio Dear Really Wants To Win: Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure your desire to win the contest is no less strong than that of your teammates. Who submits the paper should be a decision that the majority of you agree on. Discuss your concerns with them and take a vote. Dear Abby: My husband and I recently had dinner with two other couples. As soon as the meal was finished, the woman on my left turned her back to me and leaned forward so I could neither see nor converse with the person sitting to her left. She remained like that for the duration of the dinner party.

Our friends say she wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t angry or upset with me. She has done the same thing in other group gatherings, always with the same friend over whom she â&#x20AC;&#x153;hovADVICE ers.â&#x20AC;? She will whisper to this friend and Dear exclude everyone Abby else. â&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  I honestly donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think she is aware of how rude she is being. Any idea how I might approach her without hurting her feelings? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Blocked At The Party Dear Blocked: The next time it happens, speak up and say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Excuse me, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m isolated over here! Would you mind if I change places with your friend, so I can participate in a conversation while you two talk?â&#x20AC;? And in the future, because this happens regularly, their preference for talking only to each other should be taken into consideration when the seating is arranged. Dear Abby: I am a 27-year-old woman. Three weeks ago, I found out that my boyfriend of five months, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Louie,â&#x20AC;? and I are going to have a baby. This was not planned, and not a happy revelation. Louie and I are beginning to

cope, and friends are really helping. My parents, however, are not. They are pushing me to marry Louie before the baby comes. I explained that I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want that stigma and that I would like to have a big wedding later, perhaps in 2012. My parents disagree and want nothing to do with a big wedding down the road since I wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t marry Louie now. This will be their first grandchild, and they are ruining the experience by stressing me out. By the way, because of financial hardship, I currently live at home with them. What should I do? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Mama-to-be in New Jersey Dear Mama-to-be: At 27 you are an adult, and presumably able to make important decisions for yourself. Do not allow yourself to be rushed into a loveless marriage that could lead to more children and a subsequent divorce. If you and Louie are still together in 2012, you can have the wedding of your dreams then. But please be aware that your parents are under no obligation to pay for it.

Marigolds are pretty, also useful BY LEE REICH FOR THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


isitors to my garden frequently comment, upon seeing a few marigold plants growing in my vegetable beds, that I must have planted them for pest control. After all, marigolds are supposed to be one of the workhorses of biological pest control. Plant them and plant pests will be killed or â&#x20AC;&#x201C; if they are lucky â&#x20AC;&#x201C; merely repelled, right? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an appealing concept: sunny plants that thwart pestilence and blight even as they brighten your garden with blossoms.

THEYâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;RE PEST UNFRIENDLY Marigoldsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; greatest claim to pest control fame is their effect, documented in numerous studies, on nematodes, which are a kind of worm that in some cases is destructive to plants. Like other members of the daisy family, marigolds also do their share in feeding nectar to beneficial insects, such as syrphid flies, who prey on aphids and other insects that attack garden plants. Members of the daisy family do not yield nearly as much nectar as flowers of the parsley family â&#x20AC;&#x201C; dill, for instance â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but daisy family flowers keep the nectar flowing longer. Other beneficial effects of marigolds are less dramatic or useful. They have been shown to have some slight

effect in repelling cabbage worms from cabbage and their kin. And some marigolds, especially a variety called Stinking Roger, repel flies, except that the flies are the kind that bother cows and other domestic animals, not plants. Read and listen to claims made for marigolds, and you also could press it into service as a fungus killer, an insect killer, even a selective weed killer.

WEIGH PROS AND CONS Hold on a second, however, before you blanket your garden in marigolds. Some of these claims have been blown out of proportion. Those marigolds that helped repel cabbage worms: They also stole water and nutrients from nearby cabbages. So which is better? Stunted cabbages, or those with some leaves lacy from caterpillar feeding? Marigolds, especially the Gem varieties, also are a favorite food of slimy slugs and Japanese beetles. As such, they have been used to stop Japanese beetle damage â&#x20AC;&#x201C; by attracting the beetles away from other garden plants. Of course, such schemes commonly backfire by attracting more pests to the area than would have been there otherwise.

MARIGOLD REALITY If you really want their pest-controlling benefits, blanket your garden with oodles of marigolds. Brit-

ish studies showed that African marigolds killed weeds such as ground ivy and bindweed, but the marigolds were planted densely and early in the season, then allowed to grow 5 feet tall. Might not any tall, dense growth do the same? Similarly, marigolds suppress nematodes only when the marigolds are grown as a cover crop, that is, planted thickly and allowed to grow for many weeks. To sum up, marigolds seem to have little actual benefit in suppressing disease and aboveground insect pests, except perhaps to woo certain insects away from other plants. Be wary of such claims as, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I planted marigolds in my bean patch and did not have any beetles to speak of, while my neighborâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bean plants were devoured by Mexican bean beetles.â&#x20AC;? Was this gardener growing the same bean variety as the neighbor? Were soil conditions the same? Did he or she perhaps forget about the insecticide also applied? It happens. Below ground, marigolds do have some benefit â&#x20AC;&#x201C; on nematodes, at least. However, you have to plant masses of marigolds to get this benefit and anyway, not every garden has nematode problems. So why are those marigolds in my vegetable beds? â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Cause they look pretty.

NO HURRY South mustn’t be in a hurry to lead toward the queen of hearts. He can lead a heart at Trick Two but play low from dummy. If East wins and leads a diamond, South wins and leads a second heart. When West’s king appears, South has his ninth trick. If instead West played low, South would take the ace and lead a third heart, giving himself every chance for two heart tricks.

BRIDGE “How’s life treating you?” I asked Cy the Cynic. “The world gets better every day,” the Cynic replied. “Then it gets worse again every night.” Cy operates on the cynic’s assumption that it’s all downhill from here. He was the declarer at 3NT and started well when West led the ten of spades. Cy’s jack won, but after that it was all downhill. Cy next led a heart to dummy’s ace and a heart to his queen. West took the king and led another spade. Cy won and tried a third heart, but when West discarded, Cy took only eight tricks. How would you play 3NT to take advantage of the opening lead?


DAILY QUESTION You hold: S 7 5 3 2 H A 4 3 D 5 3 2 C 6 4 2. Your partner opens two clubs (strong, artificial), you respond two diamonds, he bids two spades and you try 2NT. Partner next bids three hearts. What do you say? ANSWER: Your 2NT showed weakness (if one of your low spades were the queen, you’d have raised to three spades). Since you have an unexpected ace and four-card spade support, bid four spades. You might bid three spades with a hopeless hand. South dealer Both sides vulnerable

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

Some conditions demand cautious exercise


ear Dr. Donohue: I am a 55-year-old male who knows the benefit of lifting weights. I’ve been a gym rat since I was 40. I also realize the value of controlling cholesterol. I was diagnosed with an ascending aortic aneurysm, and, upon the advice of my doctor, I left my very physical job and the gym as well. I have a lifetime restriction of lifting no more than 20 pounds. I have been inactive for the past two years, and my cholesterol levels have been rising. My doctor says I should walk. I have opted for bike riding. It’s not strenuous. I never see anything about the advantage of this kind of physical activity. Will bike riding help lower cholesterol? Do niacin supplements help? – T.C.



An aneurysm is a bulge on an artery. It represents a weak spot. The aorta – the largest body artery – is prone to developing aneurysms. It receives blood right from the pumping heart, so it is subject to the maximal pumping pressure of ejected blood. Your aneurysm is on the first 2 inches of the aorta, the ascending aorta. Genes, cigarette smoking, high blood pressure, artery hardening, aging and some inherited conditions are possible causes of aneurysms. Exercise is encouraged for most people, even those with an aortic aneurysm. However, exercises that greatly raise blood pressure, even transiently, are dangerous for those with an














aneurysm. Dr. John Elefteriades at Yale University has been a leader in warning of the danger HEALTH coming from highDr. Paul intensity Donohue weight■■■ lifting by those with an aneurysm. Weightlifting limits should be set by the person’s doctor and should be closely adhered to. Even an exercise like pushups could be a threat for someone with an aneurysm. Bike riding isn’t a dangerous activity. It does lower cholesterol. All aerobic exercise does. Aerobic exercise is things like jogging, walking, swimming and biking. Niacin (nicotinic acid) also lowers cholesterol and triglycerides, and raises HDL cholesterol, good cholesterol. The dose is somewhat high, 1 to 3 grams a day. Don’t take it, or any other medicine, without first talking the matter over with your doctor. Dear Dr. Donohue: Please settle an issue that has sparked a heated discussion. Isn’t running better for your heart than walking? I maintain that the harder the exercise, the greater are the benefits from it. I believe that you have to work up a sweat before you do yourself any good. I’ve been challenged about this. What are your thoughts? – R.C. Exercise intensity is

one of the factors that determine the effectiveness of exercise in attaining and maintaining health. There’s no dispute about that. However, there is a dispute about the need to break out in a drenching sweat to achieve health goals. Dr. Andrea Chomistek of Harvard University puts it succinctly and clearly. She asks if you burn 1,000 calories a week, does it matter if you burn them walking or running? Her answer is that running might provide a slightly greater benefit, but there’s not a huge difference between the two. There is a difference between the strenuous exercise of a professional athlete and the lessthan-strenuous exercise of a somewhat-sedentary person. Dear Dr. Donohue: I am a 58-year-old male in excellent physical condition who works out five to seven days a week. Since I am still a competitive athlete, I am always looking for a nutritional edge. My reading has introduced me to a supplement called NT Factor. The article on it claims that clinical research has proven it can not only reduce fatigue, but it can also increase stamina. I would appreciate your comments. – B.M. I have read the ingredients in NT Factor and find nothing harmful. I don’t know if it delivers all that it promises. If you decide to try it, let me know the results. I am as sure as I can be about these matters that it won’t hurt you.

GREENSBORO – Longtime former High Point Enterprise sports editor Benny Phillips became concerned last month when he had not heard when the selection committee for the Guilford County Sports Hall of Fame was to meet. “We usually meet in May,” said Phillips, who was a member of the selection committee before his retirement from the Enterprise in January, 2008. “I started raising heck about when we were going to do this. I called up to see when we were going to meet and they said “we have” and guess what?” The guess what was the committee had met without Phillips and another member, longtime Greensboro News & Record sports writer Irwin Smallwood, and put them in this year’s class of 13. “They caught me flatfooted,” Phillips said. “They did an end around me and Irwin. Phillips, a graduate of High Point College (now University), worked for the Enterprise for 48 years, including 32 as sports editor. He authored a column for Stock Car Racing magazine for 27 years and has written four books, one of them a biography of Dale Earnhardt Sr. “I was overwhelmed when they told me,” Phillips said. “There are a lot more people deserving to be in the Hall. But, I won’t give (the selection) back.”



Former High Point Enterprise sports editor Benny Phillips headlines a 13-member class of 2010 for the Guilford County Sports Hall of Fame. Phillips worked for the Enterprise for 48 years, the last 32 as sports editor. Phillips is a former winner of NASCAR’s Buddy Shuman Award for outstanding contributions to stock-car racing and is a seventime recipient of the National Motorsports Press Association writer of the year award. “This ranks up there with any award I’ve received,” Phillips said. Demp Bradford, a member of the Greensboro Sports Commission that oversees the Hall, said Phillips and Smallwood had been on the list of nominees before this year. Bradford said some nominees have been carried over since the Hall started five years ago. “We had to meet without them so they could rightfully be con-

GREENSBORO – Thirteen members have been named to the Guilford County Sports Hall of Fame with the Class of 2010 announced Friday. The Guilford County HOF was created in 2005 and the new members bring the total to 64. The induction ceremony will be held in September. The 2010 class consists of former athletes, coaches, administrators and journalists. The coaches are Don Corbett (North Carolina A&T men’s basketball), Stuart Maynard (Guilford baseball) and C.K. Siler (multiple sports at Sumner and Southern Guilford high schools). The former players are Jeff Davis (Dudley High School and Clemson football) and Otis Foster Jr. (High Point Central High School and High Point College baseball). The administrators also had active competitive careers. They are Donald Moore (Greensboro Grasshoppers), Sharron Frahm (women’s tennis) and Fred Whitfield (Charlotte Bobcats). The journalists are Benny Phillips (High Point Enterprise) and Irwin Smallwood (Greensboro News & Record). This year, a Legends Class was created for posthumous honors. It consists of Joseph Bryan, philanthropist and avid sports enthusiast, and youth baseball pioneers Bob Doss and Bill White. sidered because we didn’t want them to consider themselves and we knew they would say that they didn’t belong in the Hall, that other people were more deserving,” Bradford said. This year’s class boosts the number in the Hall to 64. Phillips wasn’t the only selection from High Point. Otis Foster Jr., a standout baseball player at High Point Central and High Point College (now University) who works for the city’s utilities department, also made the cut. Foster played at HPU from 197375 on teams that went a combined

106-27. He set then-school records for batting average in a season (.476), runs in a season (65), runs batted in over a season (76) and a career (166), home runs in a season (30) and in a career (60) and slugging percentage in a season (1.116) and a career (.837). After leaving High Point, he played five years in the Boston Red Sox organization. “This is the biggest honor I’ve ever had,” Foster said. “I never expected it. I had some good statistics at High Point. I’m happy. But, all the records I set I attribute to being on a good team.” | 888-3519

HiToms’ Grisz answers the call with pitching gem BY STEVE HANF ENTERPRISE SPORTS WRITER

THOMASVILLE – Ben Grisz got virtually no notice that he’d be starting Friday night against Forest City. “He was told and he said, ‘Yeah, I’m ready!’ ” HiToms manager Tom Dorzweiler said. “What an awesome performance he had.” Grisz, a powerfully built relief pitcher from Duke, held the Owls to one run on seven hits in an eight-inning masterpiece, allowing just one walk while striking out seven. In addition to getting the win in Thomasville’s 3-1 victory, the right-hander also got plenty of notice about his next start. “I have a feeling he’ll be in the rotation from this point on,” Dorzweiler said with a smile. The HiToms (3-5) needed Grisz to start because of tired arms in a thin bullpen. He allowed base runners in every inning except the fourth and seventh, but escaped jams by mixing in a crafty change-up with his fastball and wellplaced curve. “I used my change-up a lot tonight and I don’t usually get to do that out of the bullpen,” Grisz said. “I felt great. I was just throwing it to the glove and it was working for me.” Forest City (4-3) almost

matched Grisz on the mound. Starter Brett Stackhouse allowed a solo home run to right field by Dave Roney in the second, then cruised until the fifth. With the score tied at 1-1, Stackhouse walked No. 9 batter Seth Freeman with one out and then surrendered a single up the middle to Rob Froio. Former Trinity star Matt Dillon followed with a blast to leftcenter that hit the base of the Finch Field wall. Both runners scored for a 3-1 edge. “That took the pressure off me, getting the lead,” Grisz said. Added Dorzweiler: “He’s really come up big for us,” the manager said of Dillon, who also has been playing well at shortstop. “He’s been playing great defense and swinging the bat.” Remarkably, the HiToms would go on to strike out 10 times in their final 13 at-bats against Owl relievers Nick Osterman and J.D. Osborne. But Grisz dominated through the eighth inning, and Jordan Jankowski struck out two batters in an uneventful ninth for the save. The HiToms visit Martinsville tonight before returning to Finch Field on Sunday at 5 p.m. to play Edenton. | 888-3526


Jimmie Johnson (right) talks to his crew chief Chad Knaus (center) and Kyle Busch in the garage area at Pocono Raceway on Friday in Long Pond, Pa. Busch won the pole for Sunday’s 500, while Johnson qualified 25th.

Busch takes Cup pole at Pocono LONG POND, Pa. (AP) – Kyle Busch will start his 200th career Sprint Cup race at the front of the field. Winner of two of the last four races, Busch turned a lap at 169.485 mph Friday to win the pole for Sunday’s NASCAR race at Pocono Raceway and extend a midseason hot streak that has lifted him to second in the points standings. Now the driver that fans love to hate hopes to parlay his first pole at the 2.5 mile-long Tricky Trian-

gle into a respectable finish. His best finish at Pocono was fourth in 2005, and he hasn’t finished higher than 16th over the last two years. Busch won his second pole of the season, claiming victory at Richmond last month after starting up front. Clint Bowyer qualified second, while Dale Earnhardt, Jr., was third. Jeff Burton qualified 13th, while Jimmie Johnson starts 25th.. Earnhardt will have his best starting spot since winning the pole at Atlanta in March.




s we gear for another Belmont Stakes today in Elmont, N.Y., my thoughts turn to Secretariat. I miss the horse known as Big Red. Thirty-seven years ago, Secretariat captured the Belmont by 31 lengths in a record time of 2:24 that still stands. The image of Ron Turcotte riding Secretariat to a constantly growing lead down the backstretch, until no other horse was close enough to share the television

screen, remains etched in my mind. In the week prior to the Belmont, Secretariat graced the cover of Time, Newsweek and Sports Illustrated. The race was the centerpiece of the sporting world in the United States. But I had forgotten that only four horses joined Secretariat for the 1973 running of the Belmont. Sham, who placed second in the Kentucky Derby and Preakness, was there along with lightly-regarded Twice A Prince,

My Gallant and Private Smiles. That shouldn’t dim Secretariat’s star power in any way. I doubt a field of 1,000 horses could have come close to Big Red that epic afternoon. I sure hope we see another Triple Crown winner in the near future. That would allow the third jewel of the series to create some overdue new magic.

Wooden dead at 99

LOS ANGELES (AP) – John Wooden, college basketball’s gentlemanly Wizard of Westwood who built one of the greatest dynasties in all of sports at UCLA and became one of the most revered coaches ever, has died. He was 99. The university said Wooden died Friday night of natural causes at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, where he had been hospitalized since May 26. With his signature rolled-up game program in hand, Wooden led the Bruins to 10 NCAA championships, including an unmatched streak of seven in a row from 1967 to 1973. Over 27 years, he won 620 games, including 88 straight during one historic stretch, and coached many of the game’s greatest players such as Bill Walton and Lew Alcindor – later known as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. As a coach, he was groundbreaking trendsetter who demanded his players be in great condition so they could play an up-tempo style not well-known on the West Coast at the time. But the Wizard’s legacy extended well beyond that. He was the master of the simple one- or twosentence homily, instructive little messages best presented in his famous “Pyramid of Success.” He taught the team game and had only three hardand-fast rules – no profanity, tardiness or criticizing fellow teammates. Wooden guided the Bruins to seven consecutive titles from 1967 through 1973 and a record 88-game winning streak in the early 1970s.

College of Charleston holds off N.C. State THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. – Jose Rodriguez had four hits including a long solo homer and College of Charleston held off N.C. State 9-6 in the NCAA tournament on Friday night. Rodriguez hit his 16th homer in the sixth inning, clearing the bleachers in left at BB&T Coastal Field and helping the Cougars (43-17) advance to a matchup with host school Coastal

Carolina tonight. State (38-23), which played for the Atlantic Coast Conference title last Sunday, will meet Stony Brook in an elimination game. The Wolfpack trailed 7-0 after five innings, but got as close as 8-6 after Drew Poulk’s grand slam in the eighth. State had two on with one out and the tying run to the plate in the ninth, but reliever Owen Brittle got the final two outs for his fourth save.

Last-place Orioles fire Trembley BALTIMORE (AP) – Desperate to rejuvenate a team drained by losing, the Baltimore Orioles fired manager Dave Trembley on Friday. The Orioles (15-39) owned the worst record in the major leagues entering Friday night’s game against Boston. They had lost eight straight and were coming off an 0-6 road trip in which they were out-

scored 34-8 in Toronto and at Yankee Stadium. Third base coach Juan Samuel was appointed interim manager by president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail. After getting off to a 2-16 start – second-worst in franchise history – the Orioles appear to be staggering toward a 13th consecutive losing season.

Ferry resigns as Cavaliers’ GM CLEVELAND (AP) – Danny Ferry resigned as general manager of the Cleveland Cavaliers, a surprise decision that complicates the most important offseason in team history. Ferry’s departure Friday after five seasons occurred two weeks after the club fired coach Mike Brown following the team’s second-round

loss to the Boston Celtics in the NBA playoffs. It also comes as the team is making plans to try to re-sign two-time MVP LeBron James, who will be a free agent next month. Ferry was in the final month of his contract. He said the decision not to renew his contract was a mutual one with owner Dan Gilbert.

Lakers’ durable Fisher seeks fifth ring LOS ANGELES (AP) – Too old and too slow are two of the common knocks on Los Angeles Lakers point guard Derek Fisher. Fisher might not have the speed of the Celtics’ Rajon Rondo or the savvy of Utah’s Deron Williams or the craftiness of Phoenix’s Steve Nash. But 14 years since he entered the league, the durable Fisher could be on his way to guiding the Lakers to the franchise’s 16th championship. “Definitely since I’ve got here he’s helped me out with the basketball aspect of it and what to expect,” Lakers reserve guard Shannon Brown said during the team’s media session Friday. “Kind of the little things to do and just watching him make big shot after big shot, make play after play despite what everybody says about him” has been a great example.

“During the regular season, people talk about how he can’t do it, but his minutes go up in the playoffs and he produces.” Fisher, who will turn 36 in August, is seeking his fifth NBA championship in his 11th season with the Lakers. Former Lakers guard Robert Horry earned the nickname “Big Shot Rob” for all the clutch shots he made in helping the Lakers win three titles, and by the time Fisher’s career is over, he too may be finally credited for taking and making numerous key baskets. But the reminiscing will have to wait. “My plan is not to retire,” Fisher said. “Only thing that would change that is something that would be a physical limitation, but at this point I’m not (retiring).” Fisher will be an unrestricted

free agent this summer, but said he hopes to finish his career as a Laker. “I would love to,” Fisher said. “I’ve spent 11 of my 14 years here. We’ve had a great deal of success.” Behind the scenes, he has been the steadying force for the team and helped mentor understudies Brown and Jordan Farmar. “If we get off-track, Fish is the one person with one word or one speech who can bring us all back together,” Lakers forward Lamar Odom said. Throughout the playoffs, the three Laker guards have quietly hushed doubters by being solid, if not spectacular. The trio combined for 19 points, six rebounds, four assists and one turnover during the Lakers’ 10289 victory over the Boston Celtics in Game 1 of the finals Thursday night.

Celtics need Allen on the floor in Game 2 LOS ANGELES (AP) – The stats were better suited for a backup big man than one of the NBA’s smoothest shooters. Three baskets, five fouls. Those were the final numbers of Ray Allen, who spent much of Game 1 of the NBA finals trudging back to the bench after picking up another foul. And it’s pretty simple for the Boston Celtics: They aren’t going to win with Allen as a spectator. “Ray has to play,” Celtics coach Doc Rivers said. “We have to get Ray the ball.” They couldn’t do that nearly enough in their 102-89 loss to Los Angeles on Thursday night, be-

cause Allen was limited to only 27 minutes with foul trouble. He took only eight shots and scored just 12 points, robbing the Celtics of the perimeter threat they sorely need to soften the Lakers’ defense. Part of the problem is that Allen is assigned to guard Kobe Bryant, the MVP of last year’s NBA finals who got a head start on a repeat with 30 points in Game 1. Rivers said after the game the Celtics may need to make an adjustment there. But Friday, Rivers noted that two of Allen’s early fouls weren’t committed against Bryant. “He got the one on (Derek) Fisher, he got the reach-in foul on (Pau) Gasol,” Riv-

ers said. “Those are the fouls that Ray has to avoid himself to stay on the floor.” Allen picked up his first foul less than 30 seconds into the game and was on the bench with two after barely 5 minutes. He was on the floor for less than half of the first half – and then things really got frustrating. Allen went back to the bench early in the third quarter after being whistled for his fourth. He reentered later in the period, then was out of the game again 31 seconds later after picking up No. 5. He played only 3:27 of the quarter, when the game got away from the Celtics.

Nadal, Soderling reach French final PARIS (AP) – All Rafael Nadal cares about is winning a fifth French Open championship. Doesn’t matter how he’s played until now. Doesn’t matter that he can regain the No. 1 ranking with one more victory. And, the Spaniard insists, it certainly doesn’t matter to him one bit that in Sunday’s final, he gets a chance to face the only man he’s lost to at Roland Garros, Sweden’s Robin Soderling. The tantalizing prospect of a Nadal-Soderling rematch with a Grand Slam title on the line is something for others to ponder. “I never believe (in) revenge,” Nadal said after he and Soderling won their semifinals Friday. “I will be as happy or as disappointed if I lose to Robin or to any other player. I don’t think this is going to change the way I’ll approach the match.” Perhaps that’s true. Still, there’s one key stat that won’t go away: Nadal boasts a 37-1 career record at the French Open, with Soderling responsible for the lone setback, upsetting the four-time

champion in the fourth round a year ago en route to a runner-up finish. “It’s always good to have beaten a player before. I know that I can beat him. I showed it,” said Soderling, who knocked off defending champion Roger Federer in the quarterfinals Tuesday. “But, again, every match is a new match, and every match is different.” Friday’s two semifinals hardly could have contrasted more. First came the No. 5-seeded Soderling’s grueling, serve-it-and-slug-it victory over No. 15 Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic, a 6-3, 3-6, 5-7, 6-3, 6-3 test that required 31⁄2 hours. Then came the No. 2-seeded Nadal’s far-less-competitive 6-2, 6-3, 7-6 (6) win over No. 22 Jurgen Melzer of Austria. With the sun shining, and the temperature climbing above 80 degrees, the 6-foot-4 Soderling and the 6-foot-5 Berdych traded big, quick shots. They have similar games, relying mainly on powerful serves – Berdych pounded 21 aces, Soderling 18 – and forehands that zip through the air.

Williams sisters win 12th major doubles title PARIS (AP) – Venus and Serena Williams won their fourth consecutive major doubles title Friday at the French Open. “A Williams slam,” Serena called it. The sisters earned their 12th Grand Slam title by beating Katarina Srebot-

nik and Kveta Peschke 62, 6-3. “It’s really tough when you play one Williams,” Venus said. “When you play two, it’s really not an easy win.” The sisters will be ranked No. 1 in doubles for the first time next week in

a partnership that began in the 1980s. They’re only the third women’s doubles pair to win four major titles in a row. Martina Navratilova and Pam Shriver did it in 1983-84, and Gigi Fernandez and Natasha Zvereva did it in 1992-93.



PARIS (AP) – A look at the French Open on Friday: Weather: Sunny. High of 82 degrees. Men’s semifinal results: No. 2 Rafael Nadal def.

Trainer Zito seeks third Belmont win in six years NEW YORK (AP) – No one is in more of a New York state of mind these days than Nick Zito. And why not? The Brooklyn-born Hall of Fame trainer will be looking for his third win in six years in the $1 million Belmont Stakes today, and he has two of the three favorites for the final leg of the Triple Crown. Ice Box, the Florida Derby winner who staged a tremendous rally to finish second in the Kentucky Derby, is the 3-1 morning-line choice. Fly Down, a lightly raced colt who blew away the field by six lengths in winning the Dwyer last month, is the 9-2 third choice. The 142nd running of the Belmont may lack Derby winner Super Saver and Preakness winner Lookin At Lucky, but Zito says the Belmont is, well, the Belmont.

“It’s big,” he said. “It’s a classic race. It’s the Belmont.” Zito’s pair tops a field of 12 3-year-old colts and geldings who will try to ace racing’s “Test of the Champion,” a 11⁄2-mile lap around Belmont Park in the longest of the Triple Crown races. “It’s a tricky kind of race,” Zito said. “Our horses are fine with the distance, we just want to see if they kick in. You have to fire at the right time, too.” First Dude poses a huge threat as the 7-2 second choice. Probably the biggest horse in the field – he stands 17 hands tall – the colt trained by Dale Romans is coming off a gallant runner-up effort in the Preakness. A hot and muggy day is forecast, with temperatures in the mid-80s and a 50 percent chance of scattered thunderstorms.

Former HPU soccer player signs pro contract SPECIAL TO THE ENTERPRISE

HIGH POINT – Former High Point University men’s soccer player Matt Tuttle has signed a professional contract with the Pittsburgh Riverhounds of USL-2. Tuttle is the first HPU men’s soccer player under head coach Dustin Fonder to sign a professional contract after leaving the Panthers. “We are very excited for Matt Tuttle,” Fonder said. “It is a great sign for our program that we are starting to produce players that can compete at the next level. I am extremely proud of Matt because he really improved over his four years

We wish him great success in the pro ranks.” “It is a big relief to finally sign a professional contract,” Tuttle said. “I am really excited to take my game to a new level and play professional soccer.

I am very fortunate and glad that the Pittsburgh Riverhounds gave me this opportunity.” Tuttle was named first team AllBig South and was selected to the selected to the 2009 NSCAA/adidas South Atlantic All-Region third team after leading High Point with a team-high six assists and 14 points.

every game for the Panthers as HPU achieved its best season in 11 years of DI competition. Tuttle leaves HPU as the career leader in assists with 16 in four seasons. He also finished his career tied for fourth on the career points list with 38 and sixth on the career goals list with 11. “Being a part of the High Point family helped me prepare for the professional atmosphere,” Tuttle said. The Pittsburgh Riverhounds play in the USL Second Division, the third tier of the American professional soccer. Last season, the Riverhounds went 6-10-4 and finished eighth in the league for the second consecutive season.

Private employers hold back on hiring in May WASHINGTON (AP) – A swell in temporary government hiring for the census drove almost all the job market’s gains last month – a huge disappointment to Wall Street and a sign that private employers aren’t yet confident enough in the recovery to start adding workers with gusto. Daunted by the European debt crisis and a falling U.S. stock market at home, American businesses added just 41,000 jobs in May, the fewest since January. The government hired 10 times as many for the national census, but those po-



Chrysler recalls Dodge Caliber over pedals WASHINGTON – Chrysler is recalling nearly 35,000 Dodge Calibers in the United States and around the world to fix a potential problem with sticky gas pedals, the same issue that has affected millions of Toyotas. Chrysler Group LLC said it will recall about 25,000 Calibers in the U.S. from the 2007 model year and a limited number of 2007 Jeep Compass SUVs to inspect vehicles built between March and May of 2006. The remaining vehicles are in Mexico, Canada and elsewhere.

Metals, energy prices fall on jobs report Commodities prices fell across the board Friday as a weak government jobs report stoked concerns that the U.S. economic recovery may be far more sluggish than anticipated. Nearly all major commodities fell except for gold, sugar and natural gas. Most energy prices retreated. Benchmark crude for July delivery fell $3.10 to settle at $71.51 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

Sotheby to auction art owned by Lehman NEW YORK – More than 400 works from the corporate contemporary art collection once displayed at Lehman Brothers will be auctioned this fall to help pay creditors of the failed investment bank, Sotheby’s announced Friday. The selected works from the Neuberger Berman and Lehman Brothers Corporate Art Collection are scheduled to be sold on Sept. 25, pending bankruptcy court approval, the auction house said. Sotheby’s says the collection is valued at more than $10 million. ENTERPRISE NEWS SERVICE REPORTS


sitions will begin to disappear as summer arrives. At least on paper, the 431,000 total new jobs was the biggest gain in a decade. The unemployment rate dipped to 9.7 percent from 9.9 percent, mainly because hundreds of thousands of people gave up searching for work and were no longer counted. “On the surface, they look great,” Joel Naroff, president of Naroff Economic Advisors, said of the numbers. “But that beauty was only skin-deep. The private sector is not out there hiring like crazy.”

Wall Street interpreted the numbers as a big letdown. The Dow Jones industrial average sank from the opening bell and tumbled more than 300 points in late afternoon, falling below 10,000. The new employment snapshot, released Friday by the Labor Department, indicated that many private employers still are wary of bulking up their work forces. Economists think the unemp[loyment rate will remain above 9 percent through November and is expected to remain high – in the 7 percent range – all the way into 2012.

Dollar hits 4-year high against euro NEW YORK (AP) – The dollar surged to its highest level against the euro in more than four years Friday as a report showed hiring in the U.S. remains weak, while a Hungarian official’s warning about the state of his country’s economy deepened anxiety over Europe’s debt crisis. The euro sank as low as $1.1956, its weakest level since it bought $1.1920 in March 2006 and well below the $1.2182 it bought in New York late Thursday. A break of $1.20 prompted a new wave of selling, said Marc Chandler of Brown Brothers Harriman in New York. “At this point, the market is looking for excuses to take the (euro) back to the original launch rate of 1.18 (against the dollar) with increased talk

of eventual parity a year or two out,” Michael Woolfolk of Bank of New York Mellon wrote in a note to investors. The euro has weakened on worries about Europe’s growth prospects and the effects of government spending cuts as indebted European countries try to get their budgets back in line with European Union mandates. The head of the European Trade Union Confederation warned Friday that budget cuts are going too far and could trigger an economic depression. Peter Szijjarto, the spokesman for Hungary’s new prime minister, said the country’s economy is in a “grave” situation but the government is ready to avoid a crisis like the one being faced by Greece.

Wal-Mart CEO: Customers still face economic ‘pressure’ FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) – Wal-Mart Stores Inc.’s CEO told shareholders Friday that the company is positioning itself for 20 years of worldwide growth and that it plans to hire a half-million employees over the next five years. But the recession is continuing to vex the world’s largest retailer as consumers keep a tight grip on their money. “There is business opportunity in the world, but the world is changing fast in big, disruptive, complex ways,” CEO Mike Duke told shareholders packed into a University of Arkansas, about 30 miles from its Bentonville headquarters.

The company also unveiled a new $15 billion stock buyback. But it was short on specifics on how it will improve weak sales at its U.S. Walmart stores as the rest of the retail industry, including its key competitor Target Corp., has started to heat up. A year ago, Wal-Mart was in the sweet spot of the Great Recession. As shoppers traded down to cheaper stores, Wal-Mart gained market share and saw big sales gains. But now Wal-Mart is struggling to hold onto customers. “I still sense a great deal of pressure on our customer base,” Duke said.

Jobs report sends stocks into tailspin NEW YORK (AP) – Stocks fell to their lowest level in four months Friday after the government said hiring remains weak and another European country warned its economy was in trouble. The Dow Jones industrial average dropped 323 points to close below 10,000. It was the lowest finish since February and the third-worst slide of the year. Major indexes all lost more than 3 percent. The drop pushed the market back into “correction” mode, meaning a decline of at least 10 percent from a recent high. Interest rates slid after traders shoveled money into the safety of Treasurys and the dollar. Retailers were among the hardest-hit stocks after investors bet that a weak job market would discourage consumers from spending. Macy’s fell 6.5 percent. Financial stocks also fell sharply on concerns that borrowers would continue having problems paying their bills. American Express lost 5.3 percent. Economists polled by Thomson Reuters had forecast employers would add 513,000 jobs. “People are looking for one turning point,” Daniel Penrod, senior industry analyst for the California Credit Union League, said of the jobs report. “That’s not realistic. This growth will be much slower and more gradual than in the past.”

Regulators close small banks in two states WASHINGTON – Regulators have shut down small banks in Mississippi and Illinois, boosting the number of U.S. bank failures this year to 80. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. took over First National Bank, based in Rosedale, Miss., with $60.4 million in assets, and Arcola Homestead Savings Bank in Arcola, Ill., with about $17 million in assets. Jefferson Bank, based in Fayette, Miss., agreed to acquire the assets and deposits of First National Bank. The FDIC was unable to find a buyer for Arcola Homestead Savings Bank. The agency said it will mail checks to depositors for their insured funds on Monday. AP

This product image provided by Altria Group Inc. shows various packs of Marlboro brand cigarettes. By the end of June 2010, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration says cigarette packs no longer can feature names such as “light,” “mild,” “medium” or “low.” Cigarette makers are replacing those words with colors such as gold, silver, blue and orange.

Cigarette makers unveil color-coded packaging RICHMOND, Va. (AP) – Goodbye, Marlboro Lights. Hello, Marlboro Gold Pack. Old names and new names of “Light” cigarettes are going up in some popular cigarette brands smoke by the end of June, but their after a ban on terms such as names and packaging are getting a “light” in their names takes efcolorful makeover. fect later this month: The U.S. Food and Drug Administration says cigarette packs no Marlboro Lights: Marlboro Gold Pack longer can feature names such as Marlboro Medium: Marlboro Red “light,” “mild,” “medium” or “low,” Label which many smokers wrongly Marlboro Menthol Milds: Marlthink are less harmful than “fullboro Menthol Blue Pack flavor” cigarettes.

Companies insist the words tell ture different filters and milder-flasmokers about the taste, feel and vored blends. Long years of advertising, howblend of a cigarette, not health risks. The cigarettes usually fea- ever, emphasized measurements



of lower tar and nicotine in “light” cigarettes, even though those were measured with smoking machines that don’t mirror how real smokers puff. For example, smokers will inhale more deeply or smoke more cigarettes if they’re not getting the amount of nicotine they want. Studies show that about 90 percent of smokers and nonsmokers believe that cigarettes described as “light” or have certain colors on the packages are less harmful even though “all commercial cigarettes are equally lethal,” said David Hammond, a health behavior researcher at the University of Waterloo in Canada. Colors shape perceptions of risks on all products, Hammond said. For example, mayonnaise and soda usually use lighter colors on their packaging to distinguish between diet, light and regular products. He called the removal of those few words on cigarette packs “necessary but not sufficient measures” to improve public health or reduce false perceptions.

Oracle to cut more Sun jobs in Asia, Europe SAN JOSE, Calif. – Oracle is cutting more jobs as part of its takeover of Sun Microsystems. Oracle said in a regulatory filing Friday that the new round of cuts would mostly hit employees in Asia and Europe. The company – the world’s biggest database-software maker – didn’t specify how many employees would be laid off. But it did say the new restructuring would be at least twice as expensive as the one Oracle initiated immediately after closing the Sun deal in January. The new cuts will cost Oracle $675 million to $825 million. The previous cuts, which are ongoing, will cost an estimated $325 million.

Court sides with US Airways pilot union The pilot’s union at US Airways won a legal fight on Friday in its dispute with members who came from the old America West when the two airlines combined in 2005. The issue has been whether the union would have to follow an arbitrator’s award on seniority that was seen as favoring the America West pilots. Six of those America West pilots had sued, saying the pilot’s union was harming them by not following the arbitrator’s decision. But on Friday, a three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said it’s too soon to say that the union has harmed the America West pilots, and it ordered the case dismissed.

Big Tobacco, NYC square off over posters NEW YORK – The tobacco industry wants to snuff out a New York City regulation requiring cigarette retailers to post blunt warnings about the dangers of smoking. Cigarette giants Lorillard, Philip Morris and R.J. Reynolds filed a lawsuit Wednesday in federal court challenging the legality of a new city health department rule that forced about 11,500 tobacco sellers to hang anti-smoking posters near their cash registers.

Anger grows in the Gulf Oil disaster reaches Panhandle beaches PENSACOLA BEACH, Fla. (AP) – The smell of oil hangs heavy in the sea air. Children with plastic shovels scoop up clumps of goo in the waves. Beachcombers collect tarballs as if they were seashells. The BP catastrophe arrived with the tide on the Florida Panhandle’s white sands Friday as the company worked to adjust a cap over the gusher in a desperate and untested bid to arrest what is already the biggest oil spill in U.S. history. The widening scope of the slow-motion disaster deepened the anger and despair just as President Barack Obama arrived for his third visit to the stricken Gulf Coast. The oil has now reached the shores of four Gulf states – Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida – turning its marshlands into death zones for wildlife and staining its beaches rust and crimson in an affliction that some said brought to mind the plagues and punishments of the Bible. “In Revelations it says the water will turn to blood,” said P.J. Hahn,

director of coastal zone management for Louisiana’s Plaquemines Parish. “That’s what it looks like out here – like the Gulf is bleeding. This is going to choke the life out of everything.” He added: “It makes me want to cry.” Six weeks after the April 20 oil rig explosion that killed 11 workers, the well has leaked somewhere between 22 million and 47 million gallons of oil, according to government estimates. A device resembling an upside-down funnel was lowered over the blownout well a mile beneath the sea late Thursday to try to capture most of the oil and direct it to a ship on the surface. But crude continued to escape into the Gulf through vents designed to prevent ice crystals from clogging the cap. Engineers hoped to close several vents throughout the day. “Progress is being made, but we need to caution AP against overoptimism,” Steve Gardner of Mobile scrapes oil from the sand along a 700-yard long strip of oil said Coast Guard Adm. that washed up on the beach in Gulf Shores, Ala., Friday. Oil from the Deepwater HoThad Allen. rizon disaster has started washing ashore on the Alabama and Florida coast.

Panel recommends continued use of dispersant NEW ORLEANS (AP) – A federal panel of about 50 experts is recommending the continued use of chemical dispersants to break up the oil gushing in the Gulf of Mexico, despite its harm to plankton, larvae and fish.

Panel member Ron Tjeerdema (juh-DEER’-muh) said Friday they decided the animals harmed by the chemicals underwater had a better chance of rebounding quickly than birds and mammals on the shoreline. Tjeerdema

chairs the Department of Environmental Toxicology at the University of California, Davis. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration asked for the panel to be assembeled to provide the federal government

and BP with guidance on whether they should continue to use the controversial dispersants. Officials have released just over a million gallons of chemicals on and in the water since the April 20 blowout.

Obama lashes out at BP GRAND ISLE, La. (AP) – Dogged for being too calm in crisis, President Barack Obama unleashed frustration for all to see Friday, warning BP it had better do right by the people whose lives it has wrecked. The president’s third trek to the Gulf of Mexico was about the workers with no government titles, the shrimpers and the AP shopkeepers, the fisherPresident Barack Obama hugs Grand Isle mayor David Ca- men whose lives have been mardelle after he visits Camardelle’s, a live bait and boiled upended and are running seafood restaurant shop, in Grand Isle, La., Friday. out of people to blame.

Gary Coleman’s parents drop burial plans SALT LAKE CITY (AP) – Gary Coleman’s estranged parents abandoned their effort to bury him in his native Illinois Friday after a Utah attorney revealed the actor named an executor in a 1999 will. “Of course it’s disappointing. We’d be inhuman if it wasn’t, but we’re not up for a fight,” Coleman’s mother, Sue Coleman, said in an interview with The Associated Press. “We just want him finally put away to rest.” Gary Coleman died May 28 in Utah from a brain hemorrhage at age 42. Salt Lake City Attorney

Kent Alderman said he has a will Coleman wrote that he will take to a Utah County court sometime next week. The will was written before Coleman moved to Utah and met his future wife during filming for the 2006 comedy “Church Ball.” Alderman wouldn’t reveal details of the will, including the name of the executor, but said Coleman will not be buried this weekend. “We will submit that for probate next week and find out if this is the last will. We believe it is. Nobody’s come up with a more recent one,” Alderman said.

Yet Obama’s trip was also about him. He says it serves little substantive point to go around and yell – that people want results, not a show – but presidents face peril if they do not connect emotionally. As the crisis has dragged on – and his poll ratings have slipped – his words for BP’s leaders have grown sharper. “I don’t want them nickel-and-diming people down here,” Obama said after his latest briefing

on the oil response. He promised his government would look over BP’s shoulder to ensure it was paying out claims. His visit amounted to one long I’m-on-your-side passage for reeling communities. Along that same line, he invited family members of the 11 workers killed when the BP rig blew up to visit the White House next Thursday. Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said the president had written to each of the families.

McDonald’s pulls 12M cadmium-tainted glasses LOS ANGELES (AP) – Cadmium has been discovered in the painted design on “Shrek”-themed drinking glasses being sold nationwide at McDonald’s, forcing the burger giant to recall 12 million of the cheap U.S.-made collectibles while dramatically expanding contamination concerns about the toxic metal beyond imported children’s jewelry. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, which announced the voluntary recall early Friday, warned consumers to immediately stop AP using the glasses; McDonald’s Jasmine Matta, 7, takes said it would post instruca photo of her “Shrek”- tions on its Web site next week regarding refunds. themed glasses.

The 16-ounce glasses, being sold for about $2 each as part of a promotional campaign for the movie “Shrek Forever After,” were available in four designs depicting the characters Shrek, Princess Fiona, Puss in Boots and Donkey. The CPSC noted in its recall notice that “long-term exposure to cadmium can cause adverse health effects.” Cadmium is a known carcinogen that research shows also can cause bone softening and severe kidney problems. In the case of the Shrekthemed glassware, the potential danger would be long-term exposure to low levels of cadmium.



Pentagon official tapped as intel chief WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama intends to nominate the Pentagon’s top intelligence official, James Clapper, as the next national intelligence director despite some objections from Capitol Hill, two senior administration officials said Friday. Obama will announce his nomination of Clapper, a retired Air Force general, in a Rose Garden ceremony Saturday morning, said one of the officials.

White House urges ship to dock in Israel WASHINGTON – The White House is encouraging an Irish aid ship bound for the blockaded Gaza Strip to avoid a possible repeat confrontation with Israel and instead sail to the Israeli port of Ashdod to deliver its supplies. The ship, the Rachel Corrie, expects to reach Gaza by late Saturday morning. But Israel has vowed to keep the ship from breaching its blockade of Gaza, which is controlled by the Islamic militant group Hamas.

Soldier charged in 3 Afghan civilian deaths FORT LEWIS, Wash. – The Army said Friday a soldier has been charged with the murders of three Afghan civilians. A statement from the Army said Spc. Jeremy Morlock had been charged with three counts of premeditated murder and one count of assault. Morlock, 22, of Wasilla, Alaska, is an infantryman assigned to B Company, 2nd Battalion, 1st Infantry Regiment, 5th Stryker Brigade Combat Team.

NC Methodists to honor minister who died in quake MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

On Sunday, Methodists in Eastern North Carolina will formally dedicate a chapel in honor of one of their own, a minister who died in January’s earthquake in Haiti. The Rev. Sam Dixon, a North Carolina native, was trapped inside the Hotel Montana in Portau-Prince when the earthquake hit. He was pinned inside the building for more than 55 hours and died of his injuries. His name will now adorn the main meet-

ing room and chapel at the just completed headquarters for the N.C. Conference of the United Methodist Church in Garner. Dixon, a pastor for 24 years, was an executive officer with the New York-based United Methodist Committee on Relief, when he died. He was in Haiti as part of a group of five mission specialists investigating ways to improve medical services in the Caribbean nation. The N.C. Conference of the United Methodist Church is moving from Raleigh to Garner the

week of June 21. Its new, 32,000-square-foot building will serve as headquarters for the conference, which oversees the work of 836 churches in the eastern half of the state. The Dixon chapel and meeting room will seat 150 in a theater style seating arrangement. Dixon last served as pastor of a Roanoke Rapids congregation. At the time of his death, he oversaw the denomination’s emergency relief efforts, longterm disaster recovery, health services and peace building projects.

Nissan’s supercar still a rare sight BY ANN M. JOB THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


In July, the Nissan GTR supercar starts its third year for sale in the United States. But many Americans still haven’t seen one on the road. The reason: The limited number of sleek, twin-turbocharged GT-Rs available for sale. Only about 3,600 have been delivered from the Japanese factory to eager U.S. customers since sales started in July 2008. Even if Nissan isn’t ramping up shipments, it is ramping up prices and continuing to upgrade its most exclusive model. The 2010 GT-R, for example, has five more horsepower than the original, 2009 model, for a total of 485. This is from a V-6, not a V-8. The 2010 coupe also has a revised race car-like suspension, new wheels, improved brakes, standard curtain air bags and new control module programming for the sixspeed, dual-clutch automatic transmission. Starting manufacturer’s suggested retail price, including destination charge, is $81,790 for a base, 2010 GT-R. This is up from the $77,840 starting retail price for a base, 2009 GT-R. Nissan has


The 2010 Nissan GT-R gets mileage comparable to that of some sport utility vehicles. already announced that the starting price for the 2011 GT-R will be higher – $85,060, including destination charge. Unlike some other highperformance cars, the allwheel drive GT-R does not incur a federal gas guzzler tax. With a federal fuel economy rating of 16 miles per gallon in city driving and 21 mpg on the highway, the sporty GT-R, which has two small seats in back,

gets mileage comparable to that of some sport utility vehicles, including the Ford Flex with V-6. And while it’s difficult to describe $80,000-plus as a bargain, the GTR has a lower starting price than some competitors. For example, Audi’s 2010 R8 coupe, with 420 horsepower and all-wheel drive, starts at $117,500, while a 2010 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe, with 345

horsepower and all-wheel drive, starts at $85,050. The successor to Nissan’s Skyline GT-R performance car that was never sold in the United States, the current GT-R – without Skyline in the name – remains a potent driving experience. Even after a hard day in the office, I couldn’t help but be perked up and excited for the drive home in the GT-R. The deep,

wonderful engine sounds, with the transmission in second gear as the car wound down to the exit of a concrete parking garage, set off the car alarms on four vehicles. I never had that happen before. Once on the street and in the clear, the GT-R begged to go fast, and I changed my usual go-home route to add in some highway time. Such detail is given the 3.8-liter, double over-

A Realtor will help you get top dollar S

ure, it’s a legitimate question: Can you sell your home without the representation of a professional Realtor? The legitimate answer is, of course you can – but that begs the next question of whether it makes sense to do so. One assumes that sellers want to obtain the highest price possible. Otherwise, the home could simply be auctioned, or sold to the first buyer who offers. Getting the best price depends upon exposure to the widest and most qualified segment of potential buyers. An ad and a yard sign are not enough to create that exposure. While Realtors spend

Low-cost tactics produce better property sale A

32-year-old energy company manager will soon relocate to a new job out of state. But despite an abundance of “for sale” signs in the suburb of his choice, he’s feeling frustrated in his quest to buy a good home for his family. “More than 30 percent of the houses the man visits are untidy, in poor repair and crowded with clutter,” says Abraham Tieh, the real estate broker assisting the manager in his search. Tieh, a former president of the National Association of Exclusive Buyer Agents (, says one reason many properties are now going to market in poor condition is that the economy has left many sellers lacking funds for home improvements. But as he says, some of the most critically important presale steps require little or no cash, including basic household and carpet cleaning and de-cluttering. “Homebuyers won’t spend more than two minutes in a smelly house or one filled with excess furniture and junk,” Tieh adds. Sid Davis, a real estate broker and author of “A Survival Guide to Selling a Home,” says savvy sellers realize that buyers are becoming increasingly picky, and “if they do buy a fixer-upper, they want an extremely deep discount.” If you’re a cash-strapped home seller working to maximize your sale, these pointers could prove useful: • Realize the power of a paintbrush that

you have in your hand. Davis says home sellers can recoup at least $3 for every dollar spent on paint and supplies for an interior redo. What’s more, a freshly painted property will change SMART MOVES hands more quickly than one without such a cosEllen metic uplift. Martin While you can hire a ■■■ painting firm to do the work, Davis contends that most homeowners can become competent painters with a little effort and recommends that novice painters seek out guidance from a local home improvement store or paint company retailer. Also, the Web sites of major paint companies can be helpful. These include:, and • Mobilize by giving your excess accumulations to charity. “De-cluttering is absolutely vital because buyers can’t picture themselves living in a crowded house, and most will automatically reject such a place,” Davis says. But for homeowners who have difficulty getting rid of items they no longer use, the clearing-out process is easier if they’re assured their surplus items will be put to good use. Besides giving your extra belongings to charities, you can now find willing recipients through The Freecycle Net-

work (, a service for those seeking to “gift” items to others in the same area. (Membership is free and also allows you to pick up items from others who live nearby.) • Remove large furniture to a neighbor’s home or a self-storage unit. “I don’t mind selling a house that’s completely vacant. But if you’re still living there, make sure you take away as much furniture as possible so people can see how large your rooms are,” Davis says. To make a dining room seem larger, he suggests that sellers remove china closets, along with extra leaves from the dining room table. Also, eliminate all but four dining room chairs. In the living room, a few basics are sufficient for home showings: one sofa, one loveseat, a couple of end tables and lighting. Ideally, you’ll also remove a television with an exceptionally large screen – at least temporarily. Keeping furniture to a minimum makes it easier for would-be buyers to picture how their own furnishings would look in your space. • Check the track record of any listing agent you’re considering. Ask the agent for a printout on his or her sales performance over the past six to 12 months. Each entry should show the number of days it took the agent to sell the property (“days on market”) and how well the sellers did at closing (“list-to-sale price”). “Also, be sure that the listing agent you select is thoroughly familiar with

your neighborhood and has actively sold homes there for at least two years,” Davis says. • Ask your listing agent to conduct open houses for other local agents. Davis says traditional open houses offer few advantages for sellers because “it’s just curiosity seekers and unqualified buyers who come through.” He says the agents do well, though, “because they often pick up new clients during open houses.” A better way for your agent to promote your property, Davis suggests, is through a brokers’ open given solely for real estate agents – not the general public – which can be very helpful in spreading the word about your property. “They can give you tips on making your place show better and candid opinions on pricing,” he says. “Best of all, they can tell their home-buying clients about your house and bring them over.” Besides brokers’ opens, agents often conduct communitywide “caravans” to preview many properties. These can also help you gain exposure for your place. “If your house is in good shape and shows well, there’s no reason in the world to limit showings to any agent who’s interested in seeing it,” Davis says.

Foreclosure has unforeseen risk: lawsuits from lenders MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Before Larry Thomas unloaded his Pompano Beach, Fla., home last fall for a fraction of what he paid, he cut a deal that will keep him from worrying about a huge debt hanging over his head. Thomas insisted that his lender, American Home Mortgage Servicing, agree not to come after him for the estimated $174,000 he still owed on his two mortgages. “I feel incredible relief,” the 32-year-

old restaurant manager said last week. Others may not be as fortunate. Lenders will file a tidal wave of lawsuits against homeowners in the next few years as a way to recoup losses when home sales or foreclosure auctions don’t result in enough money to pay the mortgages in full, real estate and legal analysts say. “It will be a dramatic problem because the borrowers will not know it’s coming,” said Frank Alexander, a law professor at Emory University in Atlanta. Laws vary from state to state. In Flor-

ida, banks have five years from the date of the sale to file for so-called deficiency judgments and up to 20 years to collect. Lenders can garnish wages or make claims on borrowers’ assets. Before the housing meltdown, few lenders filed these lawsuits. Foreclosures and short sales – selling for less than the mortgage amount – were relatively rare at the time, and many of the homeowners didn’t have sufficient assets to make it worth the banks’ time and expense. But following the heady days of the

housing boom that spawned millionaire investors seemingly overnight, it’s not uncommon for borrowers to default on mortgages while still holding lucrative investments. As the next wave of the housing crisis plays out, those most in danger of getting slapped with lawsuits include angry homeowners who ransack properties they’re losing in foreclosure and borrowers who walk away from “underwater” mortgages. In both cases, analysts say, banks will want to discourage other people from such behavior.
