TUESDAY: Arts councils throughout the state, Triad operate differently


Perhaps no one knows about the current squeeze on public funding than local arts groups. Wrangling over limited funds resulted in The North Carolina Shakespeare Festival pulling out of the High Point Area Arts Council. Meanwhile, the High Point Community Theatre had to eliminate its executive director position due to financial constraints. These and other developments have put the focus on the local Arts Council, stirring debate about the role it should play in the community and who should benefit from the limited public funds available. This three-part series looks at the various roles played by the local Arts Council and the debate on its current and future role in providing and funding arts programs for local residents.

PTIA passenger traffic flat after 17 years BY PAUL B. JOHNSON ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

Piedmont Triad International Airport had 60 daily flights as of May. Airlines provide direct flights to 16 airports in the Northeast, South and Midwest. PTIA is served by six airlines: Allegiant, American, Continental, Delta, United and US Airways.

HIGH POINT – In the past year, the status of two affiliate groups of the High Point Area Arts Council changed and drew attention to operations of the Arts Council. The North Carolina Shakespeare Festival severed its affiliate status with the Arts Council at the end of June 2009 because of disagreements on funding and fundraising policies. At the beginning of April, the board of High Point Community Theatre eliminated the group’s sole paid position of executive director because the group was operating at a deficit. Specifics of that deficit are not available because Community Theatre board leaders will not be interviewed by or provide information to The High Point Enterprise. One known factor, however, is that the amount Community Theatre received from the Arts Council dropped 47 percent during the past five years. At-large High Point City Councilman Latimer Alexander IV and his wife, Robin, are among those who question how much the city gives the Arts Council for its own use and for distribution to its five affiliate groups. The couple also would like more information on how the private, nonprofit Arts Council spends its money. Last year, the Arts Council received $123,224 from the city, $75,000 from Guilford County and $38,018 from the state through its N.C. Grassroots Grants program. All three

GREENSBORO – After 17 years, passenger traffic at Piedmont Triad International Airport is back to square one. The number of travelers boarding planes now is roughly equivalent to the level in 1993. PTIA recorded 1.05 million passengers in 1993. Last year the airport boarded 1.1 million passengers, and boarding numbers are down 10.5 percent through April this year. Though PTIA’s passengers are roughly equivalent to 1993, boarding numbers have fluctuated during the past

17 years as the airport secured – then lost – discount flights, said Henry Isaacson, chairman of the Piedmont Triad Airport Authority. Continental offered discount fares in the mid-1990s before the program ended, and now-defunct Eastwind and Skybus airlines boosted boardings when they were in operation at different times in the past 15 years. “Right now, with the recession and higher oil prices last year, those factors have leveled us out. Were we to get another low-fare carrier, I think that number would pop up,” said Isaacson, a Greensboro attorney and civic leader. The lack of extensive discount carriers at PTIA makes it difficult for the

airport to stop the seepage of passengers to Charlotte/Douglas International Airport and Raleigh-Durham International Airport, he said. Passenger traffic at the two larger airports has been mixed during the past 17 years. Boardings at Charlotte/Douglas International Airport have more than doubled since 1993. Passenger numbers have grown from 8.6 million in 1993 to 17.2 million last year, Charlotte/Douglas reports. Traffic at RDU has slipped in 17 years, but the numbers come with an explanation. RDU boarded 4.9 million

Archdale Arts Council operations draw concern Debate centers tackles rise on role, funds of gaming sites BY VICKI KNOPFLER ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

ARCHDALE – The Archdale Planning and Zoning Board Monday night will consider putting tighter restrictions on future businesses that have electronic gaming operations. “Electronic gaming operations have quickly grown as a popular land use across the state of North Carolina over the past year,” said Jeff Wells, Archdale’s planning director. “Archdale, like many municipalities, has been monitoring the impact of the business within the community.” City staff is recommending that the planning board approve a text amendment that would allow electronic gaming operations to operate as a special use in the highway business and general business zoning districts. The amendment would only impact future businesses, as current electronic gaming operations would be grandfathered in. Under the proposal, future electronic gaming operations would be required to limit hours of operations from 8 a.m. to midnight, have a maximum number of 20 terminals, one parking space per terminal and must not operate within 500 feet

from a religious or child care facility, school, park or another electronic operation. Electronic gaming operations also must not operate within 200 feet of residentially zoned property. “We are proposing that they be allowed in the highway business and general business districts, which would mostly be along Main Street, parts of N.C. 62 and Archdale Road,” Wells said. Archdale’s zoning ordinance describes electronic gaming operations as any business where people utilize electronic machines to conduct games of chance, including sweepstakes and where cash, merchandise and other items of value are redeemed. Electronic gaming operations may include internet cafes, internet sweepstakes and electronic gaming machines/operations. If approved by the planning board Monday night, the text amendment would go to the City Council for consideration at its June 22 regular monthly meeting. The Planning and Zoning Board will meet at Archdale City Hall, located at 307 Balfour Drive, at 7 p.m. Monday. | 888-3657

Teen in hospital after accident at city pool ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

HIGH POINT – A teenager was hospitalized following an accident at a city pool Saturday afternoon. High Point police responded to a call in reference to a possible drowning at the Washington Terrace Park pool at 1625 E. Washington Drive, about 2:30 p.m. A 17-yearold boy was taken to High Point Regional Hospital and then to Wake Forest University Baptist Medi-

cal Center for treatment, according to High Point’s Parks and Recreation Director Allen Oliver. The victim’s identity and condition were unavailable Saturday night. Oliver said he and his staff were gathering details about the incident Saturday and had no further information to release. The pool closed early Saturday, but Oliver said he expected the facility to be open normal hours today.

Jose Ferraz of Wake Forest drifted into the median. They ruled out alcohol as a factor and say Ferraz was wearing a seatbelt. Ferraz was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the semi, Aaron Thomas, 42, of Colorado Springs, Colo., was uninjured.

HIGH POINT – Robin Alexander knows, as a mother, how positively High Point Community Theatre affected her son, Latimer Alexander V, who graduated in December from Greensboro College and grew up participating in Community Theatre productions. “When you have a child who is not an athlete but needs an outlet for talent, the Community Theatre was a wonderful place,” Robin said. “That was a gift that couldn’t have been matched anywhere else. It gave him direction. It opened so many doors for him.” Although High Point Area Arts Council Executive Director Debbie Lumpkins said Community Theatre will continue as a volunteer-run group, Robin and her husband, Latimer Alexander IV, consider the early April elimination of Community Theatre’s sole paid position a blow that signals the group’s demise. “I know the city gives (the Arts Council) a lot of money, and I don’t know if I have the right to know where it goes and what it’s used for, but I wonder where all the money the city gives the Arts Council goes,” Robin said. “I know there is community concern for what’s happened to this Community Theatre. I would like for the Arts Council to be accountable and for future generations to have the same opportunity my child had.” Robin’s husband also has concerns.

Our Arts Council has a number of programs that it has internally created, and my idea about an arts council is that it’s a fundraising body and that groups within the community create programming that is supported by the Arts Council. ... “I realize the Arts Council has expenses. ... I know of no stronger call for funding to the community than to say 90 cents out of every dollar goes directly to the affiliates for its operations, and I don’t think we can say that.”

Financial crisis hurts group that has helped many GREENVILLE (AP) – A decade ago, Tamiko Corey showed up at a local homeless shelter as a single mother and a recovering addict with nowhere to go. Last week, she turned the key in the first home she has ever owned. Now married and working full time, Corey has never forgotten the doors Greenville Community Shelters helped to unlock, and she wants to make sure those doors are open for others. “We need to always keep the shelter going,� Corey said, “because we’re going to always have somebody that is going to miss the mark.� In recent months, the shelter has missed the mark in terms of funding. Executive Director Lynne James said the nonprofit agency is experiencing the most severe financial crisis in her 12-year tenure. “This economic recession that we’re in has really put the shelter in a precarious position,� she said. “Our demand for service is very high right now, contrasting with a real low on the revenue side.� Until about two years ago, the occupancy of the shelter, which has 78 beds, averaged about 50 people a night. But in August of 2008, that number climbed into the 60s, where it has remained. Those who come in are taking longer to leave, forcing the shelter to turn others away. “They have to stay longer because they can’t find work,� James said.


Volunteers from St. Timothy Episcopal Church, Karen Rupp (left) and Jamie Kirby prepare food to serve at the Greenville Community Shelter in Greenville. “That’s one of the threads that really runs through it.� Referrals have come in from as far away as Dare County, with inquiries about available beds from nearby shelters in Wilson, Rocky Mount and Craven County. There are no shelters in Martin and Greene counties, and shelters in Lenoir and Beaufort counties are only open to men. “We had one situation recently where there was a household of seven – a mother, grandmother and five children,� James said, explaining the local shelter, with only 28 beds for women and children, had no room for such a large family. “That would be a quarter of our beds going to

one family,� she said. “We are just rarely going to have the capacity to accommodate that.� Across the nation, the story is the same. Unemployment is being blamed for shelter crowding from Rhode Island to California. According to the Washington, D.C.-based Center on Budget and Policy priorities, between July and November 2008, the number of families entering New York City homeless shelters increased by 40 percent. Massachusetts reported a 32 percent increase between November 2007 and November 2008, and shelters in Connecticut reported turning away 30 percent more families. Denise Neunaber, exec-

utive director of the North Carolina Coalition to End Homelessness, said shelters across the state are experiencing financial struggles. “People are saying, ‘We’re seeing more need. We’re turning more people away,’ � Neunaber said. “Before we kind of got into the economic crisis ... shelters were already struggling. There’s just less money out there for shelters to get in grant money and donations.� Neunaber said federal funding for homeless assistance programs has shifted in recent years away from emergency shelters. Greenville Community Shelters does not receive state or local government funding.

Right up until the moment the gates opened, workers were bustling about setting up chairs and sweeping sawdust from the newly built (as in, that day) decks adjoining the bathroom trailers. The trailers and huge dirt pile behind the stage give the space a temporary feel that won’t abate until there are more permanent structures on the site. On the positive side, the venue already boasts a pretty solid sound setup. Even acoustic music carried all the way to the back of the venue, with nuances clearly audible. The amphitheater sits in a block bounded by Cabarrus, Lenoir, Dawson and McDowell streets, but traffic noise wasn’t overly distracting except for the occasional passing train or ambulance siren.

Bangladesh mourns 117 killed in fire DHAKA, Bangladesh – Flags in Bangladesh were lowered to half-staff Saturday as the country mourned 117 people killed in a massive fire. The country’s deadliest blaze in recent memory broke out Thursday night in the narrow alleys of the old section of Dhaka, when an electrical transformer exploded soon after a rainstorm swept the city. About 100 others were injured. As of Friday, a total of 117 bodies had been found.

Peru police recover body of freeskier Backstrom LIMA, Peru – Peruvian mountain rescue police brought the body of acclaimed freeskier Arne Backstrom down off 18,780-foot Pisco mountain on Saturday, two days after he died in a high-altitude fall. Recovering Backstrom’s body from the remote peak in the Cordillera Blanca range was delayed a day because rescuers first had to remove a local guide who broke his leg in the operation, said officer Tavel Arellano of the Peruvian rescue unit.

Egyptians married to Israelis to lose citizenship CAIRO – An Egyptian appeals court on Saturday upheld a ruling that orders the country’s Interior Ministry to strip the citizenship from Egyptians married to Israeli women. The case underlines the deep animosity many Egyptians still hold toward Israelis, despite a peace treaty signed between the two countries 31 years ago. The Supreme Administrative Court’s decision also scores a point for Egyptian hard-liners.

Wearing a green bulletproof vest, his hands handcuffed behind him, the husky 22-year-old stared straight ahead and didn’t respond to reporters’ questions or make eye contact. Outside, seven Indian shamans in brightly colored ponchos repeatedly stabbed a cloth doll representing van der Sloot

in a “spiritual punishment” ritual. “We’re punishing him so that all the forces of evil are purged,” one shouted. About an hour earlier, onlookers yelled insults at the man who has dominated Peruvian front pages as police switched cars south of the foggy coastal capital.

His interrogation began almost immediately, Gen. Cesar Guardia, chief of Peru’s criminal police, told The Associated Press. Van der Sloot is suspected of killing 21-year-old Stephany Flores on May 30 at his hotel room in the Peruvian capital. Police in neighboring Chile caught van der Sloot on Thursday.

Bombing at Afghan governor’s office kills 1 KANDAHAR, Afghanistan (AP) – A bomb exploded Saturday outside the provincial governor’s office in the Afghan city of Kandahar, killing one policeman and wounding at least 14 civilians, officials said. The attack reflects deteriorating security in the largest city in the country’s volatile south – also the Taliban’s spiritual home – where NATO is preparing for a major operation seen as key to combating the insurgency. Gov. Tooryalai Wesa was not in his office at the time. The bombing also comes a day after a national peace conference in Kabul boosted President Hamid Karzai’s plans to seek negotiations with the Taliban in a bid to end the nearly nine-year war. Kandahar city police Chief Sardar Mohammad Zazai said the explosives were strapped to a bicycle on the street outside the compound where the governor lives and works. The governor’s spokesman, Zulmai Ayubi, said the 14 wounded included five children. Among the wounded, four were in critical condition, he said.


Afghan police officers stand guard near the site after a bomb explosion outside the provincial governor’s office in Kandahar, Afghanistan, Saturday. The explosion killed one policeman and wounded at least 14 civilians. “The explosion happened in front of us,” said witness Suliman Shah. “I heard it and also saw one person get blown backward, out of the back of his vehicle.” There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the bombing, but Taliban militants are the most likely suspects. The hard-line Islamist movement, ousted from power in

2001 but now a formidable militant force, says it will keep fighting. Its leaders say no talks are possible until foreign troops withdraw from the country – a step Karzai cannot afford with the insurgency raging. U.S. officials contend the Taliban leadership feels it has little reason to negotiate because it believes it is winning the war.

JERUSALEM (AP) – A defiant Israel enforced its 3-year-old blockade of Hamas-ruled Gaza on Saturday, with naval commandos swiftly commandeering a Gaza-bound aid vessel carrying an Irish Nobel laureate and other activists and forcing it to head to an Israeli port instead.

Germany, Russia: We support new Iran nuclear sanctions MESEBERG, Germany (AP) – Germany and Russia declared Saturday that the five world powers negotiating with Iran support a fresh set of international sanctions, and Chancellor Angela Merkel said they could pass soon. Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said at a news conference with Merkel that “agreement on the sanctions exists,” despite the fact that “nobody wants sanctions.” “We hope the voice of the international community will be heard by the

Iranian leadership,” Medvedev said through the official German translator. Merkel said sanctions could be passed by the United Nations Security Council “in the near future.” Russia has been traditionally opposed to sanctions for Iran, a longtime trade partner, but in recent months officials have shown less patience with Iran’s refusal to stop enriching uranium and heed other council demands meant to reduce suspicions over its nuclear aims.

6 police hurt in attack on Mexican official MEXICO CITY (AP) – An attack on the top security official in a northern Mexican state has wounded six of his bodyguards, one seriously. A Durango state spokeswoman says Public Safety Secretary Valentin Romano Lopez escaped harm. Spokeswoman Carla Puente says armed men

attacked Romano on Saturday at an athletic club in the state capital, also called Durango. State police serving as bodyguards returned fire and repelled the attack. Five officers suffered minor wounds, and one was reported in delicate condition from a gunshot to the abdomen.

POT CHARGE: “Gossip Girl� actor arrested for possession. 8A

Managing Editor: Sherrie Dockery (336) 888-3539




Possible violations found at NH blast site COLEBROOK, N.H. – Court documents indicate that explosives may have been stored or manufactured improperly or mishandled at a New Hampshire gun and ammunition plant where an explosion killed two men last month. The Caledonian-Record reports the state fire marshal’s office received two search warrants for the MDM Muzzleloader plant in Colebrook, where another man was injured in the May 14 blast.

Christened ship honors WWII commander BATH, Maine – A U.S. Navy destroyer bearing the name of a commander who won a pivotal battle in the Pacific during World War II was christened with a bottle of champagne Saturday by his granddaughter. The 9,200-ton Aegis destroyer bears the name of Adm. Raymond Spruance, who commanded a battle group comprised of two of three U.S. aircraft carriers whose warplanes sank four Japanese carriers at the Battle of Midway. Ellen Spruance Holscher whacked the bottle several times against the ship’s bow before it finally broke.

Mom finds missing kids using Facebook SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. – A Southern California mother whose two children were reported missing 15 years ago has tracked them down in Florida using Facebook. San Bernardino Deputy District Attorney Kurt Rowley says Faustino Utrera, the father of the boy and girl, took off with them in 1995 when they were ages 2 and 3. Rowley says the mother typed one of their names into Facebook and a listing for her daughter, now a teenager, came up. Utrera was arrested and charged with kidnapping and violating child custody orders. The Florida Department of Children & Families says the mom is trying to build a relationship with the children.

Oil spill’s threat to wildlife turns real ON BARATARIA BAY, La. (AP) – The wildlife apocalypse along the Gulf Coast that everyone has feared for weeks is fast becoming a terrible reality. Pelicans struggle to free themselves from oil, thick as tar, that gathers in hipdeep pools, while others stretch out useless wings, feathers dripping with crude. Dead birds and dolphins wash ashore, coated in the sludge. Seashells that once glinted pearly white under the hot June sun are stained crimson. Scenes like this played out along miles of shoreline Saturday, nearly seven weeks after a BP rig exploded and the wellhead a mile below the surface began belching millions of gallon of oil. “These waters are my backyard, my life,� said boat captain Dave Marino, a firefighter and fishing guide from Myrtle Grove. “I don’t want to say heartbreaking, because that’s been said. It’s a nightmare. It looks like it’s going to be wave after wave of it and nobody can stop it.� The oil has steadily spread east, washing up in greater quantities in recent days, even as a


Plaquemines Parish coastal zone director P.J. Hahn lifts an oil-covered pelican which was stuck in oil at Queen Bess Island in Barataria Bay, just off the Gulf of Mexico in Plaquemines Parish, La., Saturday. cap placed by BP over the blownout well began to collect some of the escaping crude. The cap, resembling an upside-down funnel, has captured about 252,000 gallons of oil, according to Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen, the government’s point man for the crisis. If earlier estimates are

correct, that means the cap is capturing from a quarter to as much as half the oil spewing from the blowout each day. But that is a small fraction of the 23 million to 47 million gallons government officials estimate have leaked into the Gulf since the April 20 explosion that killed 11 workers,

making it the nation’s largest oil spill ever. Allen, who said the goal is to gradually raise the amount of the oil being captured, compared the process to stopping the flow of water from a garden hose with a finger: “You don’t want to put your finger down too quickly, or let it off too quickly.�

On Saturday, President Barack Obama pledged in his weekly radio and Internet address to fight the spill with the people of the Gulf Coast. His words for oil giant BP PLC were stern: “We will make sure they pay every single dime owed to the people along the Gulf coast.�

Study: Drug boosts skin cancer survival CHICAGO (AP) – Researchers have scored the first big win against melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer. An experimental drug significantly improved survival in a major study of people with very advanced disease. The results, reported Saturday at a cancer conference, left doctors elated. “We have not had any therapy that

has prolonged survival� until now, said Dr. Lynn Schuchter of the Abramson Cancer Center at the University of Pennsylvania, a skin cancer specialist with no role in the study. The drug, ipilimumab, works by helping the immune system fight tumors. The federal Food and Drug Administration has pledged a quick review.

Sub attack was near US-South Korea drill WASHINGTON (AP) – On the night a torpedoarmed North Korean submarine allegedly sank a South Korean patrol ship, the U.S. and South Korea were engaged in joint antisubmarine warfare exercises just 75 miles away, military officials told The Associated Press. The sinking of the Cheonan was the worst South Korean military disaster since the 1950-53 Korean War. It showed

that even impoverished nations such as North Korea can inflict heavy casualties on far better equipped and trained forces, including those backed by U.S. military might. Defense Secretary Robert Gates said plans for more joint U.S.-South Korea anti-submarine exercises, announced after Cheonan went down, are on hold awaiting U.N. action on the incident.

Rough outline of Kagan emerges


EDUCATION: Bachelor’s in government and politics, University of Maryland; master’s in political science, St. Mary’s University, San Antonio, Texas. EXPERIENCE: Nominated Saturday by President Barack Obama to be director of national intelligence; defense undersecretary for intelligence, 2007-present; director, National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, 2001-06; after military retirement, served as an executive in private industry for companies including Vredenburg, Booz Allen Hamilton and SRA International; retired from the Air Force as a lieutenant general, 1995; director, Defense Intelligence Agency, 1991-1995; assistant chief of staff for intelligence, Air Force headquarters, Washington, 1990-91; deputy chief of staff for intelligence, Headquarters Strategic Air Command, Offutt Air Force Base, Neb., 1989-1990; director for intelligence, Headquarters U.S. Pacific Command, Camp H.M. Smith, Hawaii, 198789; assistant chief of staff for intelligence, U.S. Forces Korea, and deputy assistant chief of staff for intelligence, Republic of Korea and U.S. Combined Forces Command, 1985-87; commander, Air Force Technical Applications Center, Patrick Air Force Base, Fla., 198485.


President Barack Obama (right) looks at James Clapper during a statement to introduce him as the Director of National Intelligence (DNI), to oversee the nation’s 16 spy agencies, during a statement in the Rose Garden of the White House on Saturday in Washington.

Fight ahead for Obama’s intelligence chief choice WASHINGTON (AP) – He’s the right guy to ride herd over America’s intelligence operations. Or he’s a good guy, but the wrong one for that tough job. Those warring opinions emerged about James R. Clapper after President Barack Obama said Saturday he wants the Pentagon’s current intelligence chief to serve as director of national intelligence – the fourth since the post was created in 2004 – and wants the Senate to confirm him quickly. “Eminently qualified,” Obama described the blunt-spoken retired Air Force lieutenant general, offer-

ing his “complete confidence and support.” Those who know Clapper, 69, and have worked with him during his long career in public service say he’s never shied away from a fight. That’s just what he may get from senators who will decide whether to put him in a job that comes with an unforgiving mandate, as explained by Obama: ensuring the 16 spy agencies work “as one integrated team that produces quality, timely and accurate intelligence. Let’s be honest – this is a tough task.” A preview of the Capitol Hill obstacles? “He’s a good guy, but the

wrong guy,” said the top Republican on the Senate Intelligence Committee, Sen. Kit Bond of Missouri. It’s a thankless job that has challenged the first three directors. Many intelligence and administrative experts believe the role was illconceived when it was set up as part of the post-Sept. 11 reforms in 2004. Clapper would succeed retired Adm. Dennis Blair, who resigned after frequent clashes with the White House and other intelligence officials. Clapper has held the Pentagon intelligence job longer than expected, at the request of Defense Secretary Robert Gates.

WASHINGTON (AP) – From welfare and assisted suicide to police rights, a few scribbled notes and brief e-mails offer an outline of Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan as a pragmatist with sometimes unpredictable views on hot-button topics when she was domestic policy adKagan viser to President Bill Clinton. Discussing the effects of the 1996 welfare reform that Clinton signed into law, Kagan took an unsentimental approach in backing the filing of a legal brief saying that illegal immigrants aren’t entitled to routine prenatal care. “It looks pretty clear to me that the brief is right in saying that the welfare law forbids illegal aliens from receiving Medicaid coverage for non-emergency prenatal care,” Kagan wrote in a 1997 e-mail. This snippet was among 46,500 pages of Kagan’s records that the William J. Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, Ark., released Friday in response to a request from the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Illinois police probe lead on ex-cop’s missing wife PEORIA, Ill. (AP) – Investigators picked their way across a muddy stretch of remote central Illinois Saturday as they followed a lead into the disappearance and possible homicide of the fourth wife of former suburban Chicago police officer Drew Peterson. Peterson already faces a murder charge in the 2004 killing of his third wife, Kathleen Savio. No one has been charged in


the 2007 disappearance of his subsequent spouse, Stacy Peterson, and her D. Peterson body has not been found. State police and other law enforcement agencies were searching rural land “thick with timber” near Peoria for signs of Stacy Peterson, said state police Master Sgt. Tom Burek.

Hitting a sour note



NEW YORK (AP) – It was a real-life remake, with a different ending. A mechanic was convicted Friday of burglary in the theft of Kirsten Dunst’s $2,000 designer purse and actor Simon Pegg’s cell phone and other items from a chic hotel, a 2007 heist that Dunst forced the co-stars to twice play the part of witnesses. James Jimenez, who said he just tagged along on what he thought was a co-defendant’s legitimate errand, was convicted of trespassing after a trial last fall. But that jury deadlocked on the more serious burglary charge, spurring a retrial that brought the actors back to the witness stand this week. Their roles were simple: They explained that their possessions disappeared from a SoHo Grand Hotel penthouse suite they were using as a lounge during filming for “How to Lose Friends & Alienate People,� and that they didn’t know the men they later saw ambling around the penthouse floor on surveillance video. The star witnesses added a dash of Hollywood to the Manhattan trials and gave jurors a behind-thescenes look at moviemaking. Dunst, best known for her roles in the “SpiderMan� series, and Pegg, whose credits include last year’s “Star Trek� movie, described details ranging from the duties of a third assistant director to their takeout dinner from the high-end sushi restaurant Nobu.


Dogs, owners gather at the Sydney Opera House.

Concert for dogs brings howls from crowd SYDNEY (AP) – Some in the audience howled with glee, others stood on trembling legs and a few drooled in delight as famed performance artist Laurie Anderson debuted her original “Music for Dogs� composition outside the Sydney Opera House on Saturday. Hundreds of dogs and their owners bounced around as Anderson entertained them with 20 minutes of thumping beats, whale calls, whistles and a few high-pitched electronic sounds imperceptible to human ears. “Let’s hear it from the medium dogs!� Anderson called out from the stage, as a few dogs yipped in return. “You can do better than that – come on mediums! Whoo! WHOOOOOO!�

Jimmy Buffett laments the fouling of his paradise PENSACOLA BEACH, Fla. (AP) – The timing might be a bit off for tourists hoping to waste away in Margaritaville. But that doesn’t bother Jimmy Buffett.

Colorado theater says Sheen lawyers asked about work ASPEN, Colo. (AP) – Attorneys for Charlie Sheen have approached a Colorado nonprofit theater about having the actor do public service work as part of a plea deal in his domestic violence case, the theater’s artistic director said Friday. Sheen’s duties, if the deal is approved, would include teaching a class and helping with Theatre Aspen’s three summer shows, Paige Price said. “I certainly think he has the career credentials,� she said. “And he could possibly teach a class or do question-andanswer sessions. If this could benefit the Theatre Aspen’s actors or students, I would certainly be amenable to it.� Pitkin County Chief Deputy District Attorney Arnold Mordkin said earlier this week that prosecutors have reached an agreement with Sheen over menacing, criminal mischief and assault charges stemming from an argument with his wife on Christmas Day at an Aspen home. A police officer’s ar-

rest affidavit quoted B r o o k e Sheen as saying the actorpinned her on a bed Sheen while holding a knife to her throat and making a threat. Sheen, the star of the hit CBS show “Two and a Half Men,� has said he didn’t threaten or hit his wife. But he told police that he broke two pairs of her eyeglasses in front of her. Mordkin said Friday that he expected a judge to approve the deal Monday. But he said he couldn’t provide details on the agreement, other than to confirm there have been discussions about having Sheen do “useful public service� with the theater. It’s unknown whether Sheen would serve jail time as part of the deal. Sheen’s agent, Stan Rosenfield, told The Associated Press he couldn’t comment on a proposed deal “out of respect to the court until the judge rules.�

Guilford students say farewell Central High’s top grad says Class of 2010 can ‘go further ‘



Complete list of graduates. 3B


GREENSBORO – As their family members and friends shouted greetings and snapped pictures, High Point Central High School’s graduating seniors filed into the Greensboro Coliseum Special Events Center Saturday night, eagerly awaiting their turn to walk across the stage and be awarded their diplomas. Commencement exercises for the school, along with The Academy at High Point Central, included recognition of the academic achievements of the 295 graduating seniors in the class of 2010. “As a class, we have earned a record-setting $6.2 million in scholarships,”




Junior marshal Kishan Patel holds up sign for High Point Central seniors to line up in proper order. Valedictorian Angie Chavarria, who plans to attend Duke University, told her fellow graduates. “Today not only marks the end of high school for us, but 13 years of going to school five days a week, seven hours a day, 180 days a year. Many of us have gone to school together since elementary school,

and we have grown into formidable young adults, ready to meet the challenges that lie ahead. Now that we’ve come this far, I know we can go further.” The scholarships and awards attained by the class will take them to a variety of institutions of higher learning, including

Duke University, Wake Forest University, UNCChapel Hill, Elon University, North Carolina State University, the University of Notre Dame and Furman University, to name a few. Salutatorian Dominik Haja said encouragement from mentors like Central Principal Revonda John-

son had been vital to the seniors’ success. “I will miss Ms. Johnson’s voice every day during announcements saying, ‘Time is passing, are you?’” said Haja, who plans to attend Wake Forest University. “These past four years have been full of ends – quarters, semesters, school years. Now, we’re at a point where we mark a different kind of end in our lives.” The valedictorian of The Academy at High Point Central, Humaira Bibi, also addressed the graduates and echoed the theme that she and her classmates had a lot to be proud of. “We have struggled through many challenges, from exams to work, to the personal problems we face,” she said.

Harold L. Martin Sr., chancellor of North Carolina A&T State University, is the Virginia Tech College of Engineering Distinguished Alumnus for 2010. Martin holds undergraduate and master’s degrees in electrical engineering from A&T and a doctorate in electrical engineering from Virginia Tech.

Southwest Guilford grads urged to keep working BY DARRICK IGNASIAK ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER


T.Wingate Andrews grad Khadisha Wright waits in the lobby of the Special Events Center at the Greensboro Coliseum for fellow seniors to show up.

GREENSBORO – Southwest Guilford High School graduates were encouraged to continue the hard work that earned their diplomas into the next step of their lives during the school’s annual commencement Saturday. “Over these past four years, I’ve watched your Cowboy and Cowgirl successes in the classroom, on the field, on the stage, at work and in our community and even in each other’s lives,” Southwest Principal Alan Parker said. “I look forward to hearing your future successes. With continued hard work, you are destined for greatness.” Parker told the graduates, their families and friends that the class of 2010 received more than $4 million in scholarships. Nearly 300 graduates crossed the stage at the Greensboro Coliseum’s Special Events Center. One student that didn’t cross the stage was 17-year-old Matthew Wayne Bullis, who died Jan. 17 following a brief illness. His parents accepted their son’s diploma at the graduation, where they received a standing ovation.

“He is with us in spirit today,” Parker said. “Matthew may have left us, but he will always hold a special place in our hearts.” Valedictorian Heather Min told her fellow graduates to pursue their goals until they become reality. “We have dreamed of this day since we entered high school as disoriented freshmen,” she said. “Now, I can say that we made it. The shining memories that we share together within Southwest High will never fade away.” Min, who graduated with a 5.3 GPA, plans on attending the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she plans to major in chemistry. Joel Shuford, the school’s salutatorian who ended his high school career with a 5.2 GPA, also provided remarks at the graduation. He plans to attend N.C. State University, where he will major in engineering. “I want to encourage each and every one of us to go out in the world with a world-changing mind-set,” Shuford said. “I hope that we will use all of our talents, abilities and opportunities to benefit mankind.” | 888-3657

School celebrates 100th anniversary CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) – The first public high school for black students in one of South Carolina’s oldest cities is celebrating its 100th anniversary. The Post and Courier of Charleston reported Saturday that Burke High School has survived many milestones including integration of South Carolina’s public schools and remains the only public school on the historic peninsula. In 2004, the school moved to a new building designed by architect Harvey Gantt – a Burke graduate, the first black student at Clemson University and former mayor of Charlotte, N.C. The school has struggled academically in recent years and the state Education Department considered taking it over in 2006. The school says the 88 students in the graduating class of 2010 earned $2.1 million in scholarships.

Man returns to familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s land, turns to farming WINSTON-SALEM (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; When Nathan Pitts puts his hands in the dirt, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not playing. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s counting on that dirt for a paycheck. Pitts, 31, is the owner and sole employee of Shore Farms Organics, where carefully tended, rich soil is the foundation for picture-perfect produce. Good soil is important because Pitts doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use any pesticides or chemical fertilizers. Pitts is a new breed of farmer. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s learning to make a living off just a few acres by diversifying crops and revenue sources. He sells directly to consumers and restaurants. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always loved to grow things,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Starting a seed and watching it grow into food that people are going to eat â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just fun.â&#x20AC;? Pitts farms land that has been in his motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family for generations. Once, it was about 600 acres and was used by his grandfather and greatgrandfather for training bird dogs. Now 25 acres remain, but Pitts needs only a few of those. He grows basil, fennel, chard, broccoli, tomatoes, okra, squash, pumpkins and more. He sells the vegetables and he sells the plants. Even the sunflowers, which he uses to attract bees, will be sold as cut flowers. Just as important as the diversity of crops is the diversity of markets. On Tuesdays, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at Krankies farmers market at Third Street and Patterson Ave. On Saturday afternoons, he can be found at City Beverage on Burke Street. And in peak periods when he has lots of produce, he goes to the Dixie Classic farmers market on Saturday mornings. He also has started a Community Supported Agriculture program. About 20 people signed up to receive a box of produce every week for either 10 or 20 weeks. He sells in bulk to a handful of restaurants, such as New Town

Bistro, Meridian and 6th and Vine. And he keeps in touch with his customers through his website â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and Facebook. For years, Pitts dreamed of having his own farm. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always been good with the earth,â&#x20AC;? said his mother, Gaye Shore Pitts, a retired teacher who lives on the farm with Pitts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When he was a toddler, he used to follow me around the garden. And when he was young he said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think I would ever be happy working inside.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? By the time Pitts graduated from high school in 1997, the land wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t being used. Pitts went to work for Loweâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home-improvement and worked in a garden shop. Later, his green thumb got him promoted to the district level, where he traveled to any Loweâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s garden shop with sagging sales. His job was to fix the problems. But

that job just wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t dirty enough: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like to be outside. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not a suit-and-tie kind of guy.â&#x20AC;? He migrated to Florida, quit Loweâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, and started working in construction. Then, in 2007, he was seriously injured in a car wreck. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A guy hit me at 130 miles an hour from behind,â&#x20AC;? Pitts said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It rode over me and crushed the right side of my body, destroyed the car. I was lucky I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t paralyzed.â&#x20AC;? Skin was torn off the right side of his face and scalp. He had to have surgery to implant a permanent rod in his femur to help him walk again. He came back home for physical therapy, and his recovery gave him lots of time to think. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As I was getting better, I started getting this AP idea,â&#x20AC;? Pitts said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I always wanted to do this but nev- Nathan Pitts sells broccoli to Gretta Kohler at Krankies farmers market in downtown er had the means.â&#x20AC;? Winston-Salem.

Mary Easleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lawyers respond to dismissal of grievance MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

RALEIGH â&#x20AC;&#x201C; N.C. State University officials have misled the public about the dispute over former first lady Mary Easleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s effort to contest her firing last summer, her attorneys said Friday. A letter, sent to NCSU trustee

Randall Ramsey, claims that the university has no procedure for a case like Easleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and that the â&#x20AC;&#x153;process cobbled together by NCSU does not meet basic due process requirements.â&#x20AC;? The letter comes a day after NCSU officials announced that they had dismissed a grievance Easley filed last summer. In a statement, the university said

Easley failed to respond to a request to schedule a pre-hearing meeting and the grievance hearing itself. University officials refused to say more about the grievance, saying it was a personnel matter. Easley was told of the dismissal in a letter dated last Friday. Easley was given a five-

year, $850,000 contract to run a speakers series and create a public safety leadership center in 2008. But controversy erupted after The News & Observer reported that her job had been pushed by her husband, former Gov. Mike Easley, and orchestrated at the highest levels of state government. The universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Board of

Trustees recommended that Interim Chancellor James Woodward end Easleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contract last summer. Woodward said Easley was no longer needed because substantial portions of her job were eliminated as a result of budget cuts required of the university by the shortfall in the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget.

Pope appeals for support of Mideast Christians

NICOSIA, Cyprus (AP) – Pope Benedict XVI appealed Saturday for support for embattled Christian communities in the Middle East, calling them a vital force for peace in the region. He also met with a Turkish Cypriot Muslim religious leader, part of careful diplomacy reaching out to both sides in the decades-old conflict between ethic Greeks and Turks on the divided island. Benedict’s three-day pilgrimage to Cyprus is part of preparations for a crisis summit of Middle East bishops in Rome in October. Many bishops from the region have traveled to Cyprus to see Benedict and receive a working paper for the summit that will be made public today.

War and harsh economic conditions have led to the exodus of thousands of Christians from the Holy Land, Iraq and elsewhere in recent years. He said that as families leave because of conflicts and tensions “it can be tempting for their pastors to do likewise.” Meeting with Orthodox Christian Archbishop Chrysostomos II, Benedict said the continuing conflict in the Middle East “must be a source of concern to all of Christ’s followers.” “No one can remain indifferent to the need to support in every way possible the Christians of that troubled region, so that its ancient churches can live in peace and flourish,” Benedict said.

Sixty-two years later, the classmates and old friends are together again. 77, the youngest nun there 39 years old. “In the larger church, vocations to religious communities tend to rise and fall, and right now in most of the world there is a decline in young people entering religious life,” said St. Benedict Prioress Nancy Bauer, 57. “I would say there’s numerous factors. It’s just how it is.” Helenette and Mary David are typical of the women once so common to sisterhood. Helenette was born in 1915, the seventh of 12 children in Sleepy Eye, where her father had recently moved the family after landing a job at a dairy. A new Catholic Church had just opened there, and when the family couldn’t find a house, the priest offered room in the old church. “So that’s where I was born, right there in the church,” Helenette said. By her teen years, various relatives were urging Helenette to join a convent.

Mary David was born in 1918 in Dickinson, N.D., the third of five children; her mother died when she was still a girl. “I was the middle child, with the middle child psychology – I was the assertive one,” Mary David recalled. She devoured books and loved learning, and took strongly to the Benedictine nuns who taught her at school. By the time she was 14, Mary David informed her father she wanted to attend the Benedectine-run boarding school next to the monastery in St. Joseph. By 17 she was a novice, after she convinced the nuns who ran the school to bend the rules that she was supposed to wait until she turned 18. Mary David and Helenette took their vows together in 1936. Soon after, Mary David left to work in a Benedictine monastery in Washington state, where she would remain until 1950; she’s spent most of the rest of her life in St. Joseph, where she was a dean at the College of St. Benedict and a canon lawyer for the nearby Diocese of St. Cloud. “Only because I was in a religious life could I have done all that,” said Mary David, who at 92 is still fit and sharp. Helenette spent the next dozen years in St. Joseph, teaching music and playing the organ, before she decided to join the group that was headed about 170 miles southeast to start a new monastery in Wisconsin.

ST. JOSEPH, Minn. (AP) – Sister Mary David Olheiser and Sister Helenette Baltes professed their vows together in 1936 as two of the 21 new sisters to join the Sisters of the Order of St. Benedict that year. At the time, their central Minnesota Roman Catholic monastery was overflowing with youth and energy. Sixty-two years later, the classmates and old friends are together again. St. Benedict is taking St. Bede back into its fold. The smaller group is facing demographic realities by closing its Wisconsin monastery and moving 29 remaining sisters back to Minnesota. “It’s just a blessing,” said Helenette, 94, of her reunion with the 92year-old Mary David. It also reflects the massive changes in the lives of nuns in their lifetimes, as once-flourishing orders merge or close. A 2009 Georgetown University study for the National Religious Vocation Conference found the median age in Catholic women’s orders to be in the mid 70s, and that 34 percent of religious women’s orders surveyed had no new candidates for the sisterhood. About half of those orders with new candidates had at most one or two in the pipeline. When 83 nuns including Sister Helenette departed for Eau Claire in 1948, they left about 1,200 Benedictine nuns at the monastery in St. Joseph. Today there are about 250, a

LEONARD PITTS: Sarah Palin finds she has a stalker next door. TOMORROW

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


The sun controls Earth’s temperature, not CO2 In response to the recent article “Chemistry of oceans changing rapidly,” which stated: “The chemistry of oceans is changing faster than it has in 800,000 years [the imaginary world of evolutionists] because of the carbon dioxide being absorbed from the atmosphere, which in turn is losing global warming. CO2 has been a concern for years because of its impact on global temperatures.” My letter of Feb. 21, 2009, “Give the sun its due credit,” stated, “The fluctuation in the sun’s electromagnetic field (sunspots) controls Earth’s temperature, not the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere as the Al Gore scientists argue.” There have been less sunspots the last two years than there have been for many years – global cooling. The oceans contain more CO2 than the atmosphere. When they cool, they absorb CO2; when they warm up, they release CO2. Now it’s global cooling that’s causing the problem. “The oceans are absorbing CO2 causing scientific concern because of the change of the ocean’s chemistry. The pH has declined from 8.2 to 8.1 and is expected to decline further by the end of this century” according to the Research Council of National Academy of Science [evolutionists]. Their concern is “the pH and its effect on fish and other sea life.” The facts are these: The sun causes the changes in the ocean’s chemistry, not CO2, by influencing photosynthesis, the production



of phytoplankton, a microscopic plant which causes changes in pH. Less sunlight, less phytoplankton, lower pH. More sunlight, more phytoplankton, higher pH. The normal range for pH is 7.0 to 9.0. Fish cannot live outside this range due to lack of oxygen. The pH has been within this range for 6,000 years. No, Chicken Little, the sky is not falling. The Lord Jesus, Creator of all things, is still in control. John 1:1-14, Colossians 1:13-20. CLAYTON L. PROCTOR SR. Trinity

Showtime is back in the city O


o, it isn’t the High Point Market that is playing host to visitors in downtown High Point this week, but it’s still a pretty big deal. Showtime, a semiannual fabric (and much more) market, is produced by and for members of the International Textile Market Association (ITMA), bringing all segments of the home furnishings industry together, in one place for the 41st time today through Wednesday. ITMA member companies host more than 800 buying companies and some 3,000 attendees during each event. Attendees usually are from the furniture and design sectors but Catherine Morsell, ITMA director, reports that several retail fabric stores will be back for the first time in several years, a sign that the economy is improving and strengthening of the desire to get new product on the floor. High Pointers continue to play a bigger role in Showtime, an event that provides an estimated local economic impact of $1.35 million. Models for tonight’s fashion show, wearing costumes made from exhibitors’ fabrics, are members of High Point Ballet. Welcome Showtime! Have a great market.

like Arizona. If you are here illegally, go home! If we citizens break the law aren’t we punished? What makes the Mexican illegals exempt? I think Obama should move to Mexico and live with their president. Is a vote worth all of this? We have 11 million illegals in the U.S. Over one million are in North Carolina. Would the Mexican government take care of this many people from our state? These people can’t speak English. They were not born here. They have three and four children and usually one on the way. They want all of these children to be born here because they then become citizen U.S. babies. They are taking away from American families. Most of these families have lost their job or fallen on hard times. The aid we have is paid for by our tax dollars. It doesn’t come from Mexico to

be given to illegals. How do you think they pay for their groceries? Our WIC checks and food stamp cards feed them! Am I upset? You bet! My mother worked in a factory until she was 75 years old, when she left work having many medical problems, I tried through social services to get her assistance. She could only receive $10 per month. Remember, this woman paid taxes for nearly 60 years. Is this fair? Please write/contact your state reps, senators, Congress people, etc. Let them know how you feel about illegals. Feel free to send a copy of this letter. Remind them there will be another voting time! You can imagine what I told them they could do with that $10.

internships, there are many young adults seeking careers in mass communications in general and in newspapers in particular. Nido Qubein, president of High Point University, has been telling me for years that communications is the fastest growing major on college OPINION campuses, although journalism is just a small part of the communicaTom tions discipline. Blount I’m wise enough to know a ■■■ smaller number of those communications majors will be seeking careers with newspapers than say, 25, 20 or even 15 years ago, but I also know today’s students also are savvy enough to know that print journalism, even if the time spent there is brief, is a great way to prepare for careers that employ strong writing skills. Enterprise interns this summer – Dianna Bell, (Thomasville) from HPU, and Jordan Howse, (Raleigh) from Winston-Salem State University – both want to test their skills as reporters for a daily newspaper. Bell, who claims “being a staff writer for my university’s newspaper, The Campus Chronicle, has afforded me many opportunities to write varying kinds of articles,” says she wants, during her internship “to develop my writing in a real world setting” and that the “demands of journalism has pushed me to be more outgoing.” Howse says she decided to major in journalism because, “I’m nosy ... I love to write,” and says while working for WSSU’s News Argus, she wants to know as much as she can about what’s happening on campus, wants to get to know the students and why they are as active in the campus community as they are, then tell others about it.” Howse plans to do the same thing in the greater High Point community while at the Enterprise this summer. Biggest surprises for Bell during the first three weeks of her internship were (1) finding out that getting information from story sources takes more time than she expected and (2) how quickly she saw the power of journalism because of action taken by many people in response to stories. At this stage of their lives, Howse’s dream job would be covering fashion for a magazine or working her way through the ranks to become editor of a newspaper, while Bell’s dream job would be writing about arts and entertainment (for newspapers, if such jobs are available in her future, and, if not, for magazines). If these two are typical examples, print journalism will be in good hands.


Founded in 1883


Print journalism continues to appeal to many students

ne could believe, given the various reports floating around, that young people simply no longer read newspapers and that high school and college students aren’t seeking careers in print journalism. Yet, two recent studies strongly indicate otherwise. Results in a study by the University of Texas (in January) predict that young adults who get much of their news from the Internet and social networking sites like plan to dump some of these sources within the next five years and turn to newspapers and other traditional media for information about their world. The study, published in the recent edition of the Newspaper Research Journal, also found that the number of college-educated adults ages 18 to 29 who read a newspaper regularly will increase from 14 percent today to an estimated 41 percent in 2013. Almost 75 percent of the students who participated in the study said they plan to consume Internet news in five years, up from 58 percent who say they use this source for news today. According to the study, students plan to turn away from Facebook, MySpace, YouTube and other social networking sites as they get older. For example, while 28 percent of survey respondents said they currently use for news, only 8 percent expect to continue using this source in the future. “I don’t know if it will save newspapers in any kind of sense,” said Seth C. Lewis, a doctoral student at the University of Texas and the study’s author. “But print is by no means dead.” Meanwhile, here are age-related readership figures from a recent study by Newspaper Association of America: • Age 18-24: 37 percent read daily newspapers; 44 percent read Sunday papers. • Age 25-34: 35 percent read dailies; 45 percent read Sundays. • Age 35-44: 47 percent read dailies; 56 percent read Sundays. •Age 45-54: 56 percent read dailies; 64 percent read Sundays. • Age 55-64: 52 percent read dailies; 68 percent read Sundays. • Age 65+: 68 percent read dailies; 72 percent read Sundays. “What’s more,” another study recently released by the Newspaper National Network showed, “eighty percent of these newspaper readers also access the online version of the print newspaper within a seven-day period.” Judging by the number of inquiries editors at The High Point Enterprise received during the 2009-10 college semesters (primarily from freshmen, sophomores and juniors but also from students who were graduating in May) for summer

Obama Leaders are forewarned, so be forearmed Doctrine T spells trouble D

uring the Bush administration it was clear that our president saw the U.S. as an exceptional world leader and a force for good in the world. President Bush made some mistakes, but there was never any doubt that his intentions were in agreement with the best interests of our country. The intentions of President Obama are anything but clear. He seems to believe that America has created most of the world’s problems, and that the world would be better off with some other leader. The Obama administration has been creating serious problems inside of our country, but the Obama Doctrine is creating serious external problems that will eventually become ours. The Obama Doctrine is defined by literally bowing down to foreign leaders, apologizing for American success in front of foreign audiences, and disrespecting our long-time allies while foolishly asking our enemies to be nice. It’s along these lines that OPINION Obama’s National Security Strategy Mike was drafted. Hughes The document ■■■ reads like it was written using the idiot liberal style guide. It’s full of high-minded platitudes that we all know the Obama administration would never carry out. I have to wonder if Obama has even read it. It contains the obligatory cheap shots against George W. Bush, and apparently climate change is now a national security concern worth mentioning 24 times in its 55 pages. The introduction ends with the words, “America is ready to lead once more” – as if America was not already a world leader. It also says that we will “create space and support for those who resist oppression.” Yet Obama didn’t lift a finger to support the people who were being slaughtered in the streets as they attempted to resist Iranian oppression after their 2009 election. Then-Sen. Obama never lifted a finger for the Iraqis who were oppressed by Saddam Hussein either. Apparently this administration believes that national security is something that can be outsourced: “The burdens of a young century cannot fall on American shoulders alone …” A somewhat true statement, but it’s foolish to expect any other country or international organization to act in our best interest. Actually, it’s beyond foolish – it’s dangerous. For all of Obama’s pleasantries with our enemies, what do we have to show? Brazil and Turkey giving aid to Iran’s nuclear program, threats of war by N. Korea, rising tensions in the Middle East and three domestic terror attacks, so far. After N. Korea sank a S. Korean navy ship, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the world must respond. The response from N. Korea was more aggression. The response from the world was silence. The world didn’t sign the Mutual Defense Treaty with S. Korea in 1953, we did. Kim Jong-Il sees weakness in Obama, and weakness leads to opportunity. The leaders of Iran, Brazil, Turkey, al-Qaida and Hamas see weakness, too, and they’re looking for opportunity. I don’t doubt that the intention of Obama’s National Security Strategy is to promote peace, but the liberal worldview that it’s based on ignores reality and history. The world needs strong leadership now more than ever, but the Obama administration is not capable of providing that leadership.

his isn’t a good time to be the governor or a legislator in North Carolina. But politicians don’t have the luxury of choosing the times; they must face the realities in which they find themselves and make the most of them. When the short session of the Legislature convened last month, officials were told they must find $800 million to balance the budget for the year that begins July 1. Those projections included $500 million in federal Medicaid funds, but Congress has yet to approve this funding, leaving another significant hole if funds aren’t forthcoming. The state’s problems multiply when you consider federal relief dollars are due to end next year, as are the “temporary” sales and income taxes passed in 2009. Without them, North Carolina could experience a “cliff effect” deficit of more than $2 billion beginning in July 2011, and that estimate was made before the director of the State Health Plan projected the

state will need to pump in an additional $400 million due to increased medical costs. But these problems pale MY SPIN in comparison to what potenTom tially awaits us. Campbell North Carolina ■■■ lost more than 300,000 jobs during the past two years and some economists are saying that at current levels it might be 2012 or even 2013 before state revenues return to prerecession levels. The weak economy could add as many as 350,000 new enrollments in the next three years to the current 1.5 million recipients. Medicaid currently costs $9.5 billion dollars per year; North Carolina pays more than $2 billion of that amount. In 2014, health reforms mandate that every person be covered by a health insurance plan. Reliable sources predict this could

add an additional 400,000 North Carolinians to Medicaid rolls, boosting our numbers to as large as 2.2 million. The state has about $16 billion dollars in recurring revenues each year, but demands are skyrocketing. Forewarned is forearmed, according to the old proverb. State leaders need to begin now to address these coming fiscal needs. To be sure there is no one single fix, but there are actions that could help. For starters, our state could finally reform our tax codes. We could insist on a zerobased budget process that would help force state leaders to establish spending priorities and enable us to make intelligent budget decisions. And we are long overdue for government restructuring. North Carolina cannot afford Medicaid in its current form, and our leaders must make choices about eligibility and benefits for our program that will help the most who need the most help.

Given the fact that about 80 percent of our state budget is spent on health and human services and education, it is unrealistic to think we can cut our way out of these burgeoning demands. It makes no difference whether Republicans or Democrats are in power, tax increases are ahead for North Carolina. The question is in what form, what amount, and when they will be imposed? How our leaders respond to these next few months will determine not only the future for our state but also the legacy they leave for their time in office. We do not envy their task but we hope they will meet these challenges with courage and wisdom, taking the correct – instead of the most expedient – actions.

Bibical & constitutional Not one of the Ten Commandments is in the U.S. Constitution


here are no democratically elected leaders in the Christian Bible. I know – it’s shocking. But, if you catch the rhetoric pertaining to the U.S. Constitution, you’d think the Ten Commandments are its bullet points. They’re not. The whole idea of a representative democracy (a Greek word) comes from Ancient (think then-solvent) Greece. The leaders in the Bible were all kings and/or tyrants and the Bill of Rights is nowhere in the New or Old OPINION Testament. Simply: DeTina mocracy isn’t Dupuy biblical. But neither is the combustible engine, CAT scans or GPS – it doesn’t make them any less awesome. So when fly-by-night pontificators, the loudest being the scholarly Sarah Palin, claim this country’s laws are ordained by God via the Bible, she needs to show her work – because freedom of the press, due process and freedom of speech are not through-lines in biblical teachings. Nor is the citizenry bearing arms. “Go back to what our founders and our founding documents meant – they’re quite clear – that we would create law based on the God of the Bible and the Ten Commandments,” Palin sputtered on Fox News recently. Evidently, just because it’s “protected speech” doesn’t make it “factual.” When you break it down, three of the Ten Commandments are universal laws with zero controversy (do not murder, do not steal, no false witnessing). The teetering point to make half of the most widely accepted version of the


Ten Commandments actual laws have been fought over by the states. Blue Laws, laws prohibiting things on Sundays based on the Commandment to keep the Sabbath holy, are still on the books in some places. They’re some of the sillier laws in the country. In Texas, you couldn’t buy anything on Sundays you could do work with. So hardware stores had to put blue price tags on things like hammers up until the law was overturned in 1984. There are still places where you can’t buy a car on “the day of rest.” Let alone booze. Talk about an over-reaching government dictating what businesses can and can’t do. Other attempts to pass laws to abolish cursing, an inter-

pretation of using the Lord’s name in vain, have been tried. The most amusing one was by the real Victorian-era sheriff of Deadwood, S.D., Seth Bullock. He cracked down on cussing in his rowdy mining camp only to have the most curse-laden HBO show in the history of television about it 140 years later. Then adultery is still illegal in some states while the Supreme Court overturned sodomy laws in 2003. So to recap: Three of the Ten Commandments are covered by federal laws and three are laws in some states. But the other four are nowhere to be found in U.S. law. Which from a statistical stance sums up the debate about religion and our gov-

ernment: a third of people think this is and should be a Christian nation, others waffle yet most think it’s not a good idea in practice. In fact, none of the Ten Commandments is in the U.S. Constitution. The Constitution is the charter of the government outlining the rights of the people and the limits of government. Comparing the two is like apples to a red herring. “The Constitutional protections are on what they [the Founders] thought was right and wrong, and what they thought was right and wrong is based on the Ten Commandments,” claimed Bill O’Reilly on his cable show. The question is: Do we really want to live in a country that makes not honoring your mother and father a crime? Is it wise to have a law mandating you can’t have any other gods or make false idols or covet your neighbor’s spouse? The Founding Fathers (ahem) clearly thought it wasn’t. Why, if you want America to be more religious, do you need to co-opt history to accomplish it? Have the courage to stand up for your convictions without creating fiction about the founding documents. I don’t agree with the Founding Fathers about everything (slavery, women’s rights, native people’s rights). But that doesn’t make the U.S. Constitution, in my eyes, any less of an amazing feat for humanity. So go ahead and stand up for your faith and be proud. But lying for it is, ya know, after all – bearing false witness. TINA DUPUY is an award-winning writer and the editor of FishbowlLA. com.

Helping out is better than getting mad The Sanford Herald, June 1


ith each passing day, the oil spill in the Gulf makes you angrier and angrier. Already well past the disaster from the Exxon Valdez in Alaska, the BP oil leak has become our nation’s worst economic disaster. It does no good to point fingers right now or assign blame, and it certainly isn’t healthy to let the images of tarred birds and dead marine life overwhelm you. What you can do, however,

is help. Whether you’re a single volunteer, part of a church group or owner of a small business, there are ways to pitch in and help. USA Today columnist Steve Strauss wrote about several agencies that are taking volunteers if you feel the urge to head to the Gulf yourself to lend a hand. He advises that you don’t just pack up and head down there without a plan though. Call agencies like Volunteer Louisiana (800) 755-5175 or the National Audubon Society, which is organizing

volunteers for wildlife rescue and beach clean-up. The government’s volunteer hotline can be reached at (866) 448-5816. If you can’t donate time, you can donate money. Text “WILDLIFE” to 20222 and you will donate $10 from you phone bill to wildlife cleanup efforts. The money goes to the National Wildlife Federation. Helping out can be as easy as buying dishwater detergent. Proctor & Gamble, makers of Dawn detergent, has donated thousands of bottles of soap to wildlife conserva-

tion programs over the past 30 years, cleaning more than 75,000 animals. As their commercials point out, Dawn has stepped up in the Gulf as well, and your purchases of detergent help in the effort. For more information on how to help the environmental portion of this disaster, there are dozens of avenues that can be found through search engines like Google. Whatever you choose to do, it’s better than sitting by idly and watching the mess unfold.

Lumbees scrap contract with gambling consultant PEMBROKE (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A North Carolina Indian tribe said it has ended its contract with a Nevada gambling consultant in the tribeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s effort to be officially recognized by Congress. On Friday, the Lumbee tribe and officials from Lewin International terminated the contract that gave the Las Vegas company the authority to handle the tribeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s push for federal recognition, The Fayetteville Observer reported. In the contract, the tribe had agreed to give Lewin a stake in future Lumbee economic ventures, including gambling. But the Lumbee have long said they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want the right to have gambling as part of their federal recognition. That created friction both within and outside the tribe as the past 20 years has seen an increase

in blocking newly recognized tribes from making money off gambling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We all know that perception is reality up there in Washington,â&#x20AC;? tribal Chairman Purnell Swett said in the news release announcing that the deal was off. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anything that could take away from our recognition work â&#x20AC;&#x201C; whether real or imagined â&#x20AC;&#x201C; has to be dealt with.â&#x20AC;? Maryland-based attorney Arlinda Locklear had worked for 20 years to help the Lumbee get federal recognition until she was replaced by the Lewin contract earlier this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a relief,â&#x20AC;? Locklear said of the decision to cancel the contract. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I guess I had always considered the relationship with a gaming consultant to be very unfortunate and not helpful for our recognition bill. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This should help re-

store the tribeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s integrity and credibility, because I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what we lost by this association.â&#x20AC;? After at least 12 congressional studies and countless bills over the past 120 years, the Lumbee are as close as theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever been to winning the federal status that has eluded them since the 1880s, when North Carolina recognized the tribe. The recognition bill has passed the House of Representatives and a key Senate committee, and for the first time ever the president, the Bureau of Indian Affairs and both North Carolina senators all support recognition. The bill would send at least $108 million a year in federal dollars to the tribe, mostly in health care funding, according to a Congressional Budget Office estimate.

Gold medal for spending Did 2004 Olympics spark Greek financial crisis? ATHENS, Greece (AP) – Governments in the Greek capital of Athens haven’t balanced a budget in nearly 40 years, and the country narrowly averted bankruptcy in May before panicky European partners grudgingly put up massive rescue loans. While many factors are behind the crippling debt crisis, the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens has drawn particular attention. If not the sole reason for this nation’s financial mess, some point to the games as at least an illustration of what’s gone wrong in Greece. Their argument starts with more than a dozen Olympic venues – now vacant, fenced off and patrolled by private security guards. Stella Alfieri, an

outspoken anti-Games campaigner, says they marked the start of Greece’s irresponsible spending binge. “I feel vindicated, but it’s tragic for the country ... They exploited feelings of pride in the Greek people, and people profited from that,” said Alfieri, a former member of parliament from a small left-wing party. “Money was totally squandered in a thoughtless way.” The 2004 Athens Olympics cost nearly $11 billion by current exchange rates, double the initial budget. And that figure that does not include major infrastructure projects rushed to completion at inflated costs. In the months before the games, construction crews worked around the clock, using floodlights

to keep the work going at night. In addition, the tab for security alone was more than $1.2 billion. Six years later, more than half of Athens’ Olympic sites are barely used or empty. The long list of mothballed facilities includes a baseball diamond, a massive man-made canoe and kayak course, and arenas built for unglamorous sports such as table tennis, field hockey and judo. Don Porter, president of the International Softball Federation, said his organization made an offer several years ago to maintain the Olympic softball venue and use it to host events but never received a reply. “The softball venue is still standing, except it is overgrown with weeds, unmaintained and unused,” Porter said in an e-mail. “Of course it is not only the Olympics that caused Greece’s current problems but it probably added to it.” Deals to convert several

venues into recreation sites – such as turning the canoekayak venue into a water park – have been stalled by legal challenges from residents’ groups and Byzantine planning regulations. Criticism of the Olympic spending has sharpened in recent weeks after parliament launched an investigation into allegations that German industrial giant Siemens AG paid bribes to secure contracts before the 2004 Games. A former Greek transport minister has been charged with money laundering after he told the inquiry that he had received more than $123,000 from Siemens in 1998 as a campaign donation. International Olympic Committee President Jacques Rogge said linking the debt crisis to the games is “unfair.” He argues that Athens is still reaping the benefits from its pre-games overhaul of the city’s transport systems and infrastructure.

“These are things that really leave a very good legacy for the city ... There have been expenses, of course. You don’t build an airport for free,” Rogge told The Associated Press in Lausanne, Switzerland. “Had Athens still been outmoded, the economy would have been much worse probably than it is today.” Greek Olympic officials insist the scale of the country’s dire financial problems – and its staggering national debt of $382 billion – is simply too big to be blamed on the 2004 Games budget. Some financial experts agree. “Put in proper perspective, it is hard to argue that the Olympic Games were an important factor behind the Greek financial crisis. It is, however, likely that they contributed modestly to the problem,” Andrew Zimbalist, a U.S. economist who studies the financial impact of major sporting events, said in an e-mail.

War brings strong work ethic to restaurant owners BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

ARCHDALE – Anthony Lim doesn’t actually have a twin brother, but he jokingly refers to his family’s business, Bamboo Garden, as just that. “I’ve always seen this restaurant as my twin brother,” he said. “Whenever I was little, I used to play and wait for my parents here all the time. It’s like a second home. I started working here as a takeout boy at 12 years old.” The restaurant was acquired by the family in 1989, the same year Lim was born. Now a 21-yearold college student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Lim assists his family by managing the business when he is at home, especially in the summer. He also serves as a smiling face at the restaurant that greets and chats with customers. His mother, Nancy, usually works at the front register while his father, Tony, works as head chef. Bamboo Garden has been in the same location since it opened, becoming a Chinese food staple in the Archdale restaurant scene. It’s undergone some changes, such as adding a buffet bar in the mid-1990s when the community began to grow, and cutting back on some midday hours between lunch and dinner when tough economic times hit. But the family business has weathered the recession with a calm spirit, Lim said, because they’ve known much harder times before. Tony and Nancy Lim came to America as refu-

gees after the Vietnam War. Tony Lim made it to the U.S. in 1981, but his son says the things he saw in his homeland make him a thankful, diligent worker. “My dad saw people pass away right in front of him,” he said. “Going through all of those horrific events and having family members that didn’t make it through the war, he learned a lot. He’s always thankful.” Both of his parents were moved from place to place across Vietnam and Cambodia during the war. One of the positive experiences his father had in that time was learning to cook in the different cultures. “Wherever he was, he learned to cook their food,” he said. “We call him the king of the kitchen.” Tony and Nancy were actually childhood friends who found each

other after they had grown up and moved to the U.S. Nancy’s extended family originally opened two Bamboo Garden locations – one in Archdale and one in Asheboro. They called on Tony to be the head chef at the Archdale location when the two restaurants began to take up too much of their time. Nancy continued to work at the Archdale location, and, soon after

Tony’s arrival, the two were married. One of the restaurant’s most popular items are its crab wantons, Lim said. A biology major, Lim isn’t sure where exactly he’ll go after school. He’s considered the fields of science, business and marketing. But whatever he does, he knows the restaurant will probably be a part of it. “I do feel torn,” he said


about pursuing a different career or sticking with the restaurant. “This is the point when most people begin to figure out what they are going to do with their lives. People at school have asked me, ‘What do you know that 90 percent of most people don’t know?’ I always say, ‘Chinese food.’” For now, he’s introducing the restaurant to the world of technology by creating a Bamboo Garden Web site. It’s something that will look good in his portfolio, but it will also allow the family to keep in touch with their customers. “New customers are important, but they don’t get you through tough economic times like this,” he said. “You survive because of your regular customers who love you.” | 888-3617

CARMEL VALLEY, Calif. (AP) – Extra virgin, light, with lemon, unfiltered, cold-pressed: The variety of olive oil on most supermarket shelves is dazzling. But what does it all mean? These terms might be common currency among foodies and the farmer’s market crowd, but they have never been enforceable, or legally defined in the United States – until now. The U.S. Department of Agriculture in April adopted scientifically verifiable standards for nomenclature such as “virgin” or “extra virgin,” with extra virgin considered the highest quality because it has the best flavor. They will start enforcing them in October, just in time for the harvest of trees that are now in full flower. The definitions will differentiate cheaper impostors from the best oil: those cold-pressed, pure, golden-hued products that lead connoisseurs to talk of grass tones, apple or nut flavors, and peppery finishes, in a language usually reserved for wines. The standards will also conform to international and trade group definitions, reassuring buyers they can be sure of what’s behind that fancy label before they plunk down $15, $20 or more.

The entire topic is confusing to me and my company members. Thanks ... good to see you at the restaurant, Ed A: Hello Ed: Well you asked about a big topic that needs clarification. My response comes primarily from the U.S. Federal Reserve System and U.S. Commerce Agency, Economic Date Department. The information may shock you. First the despair by the spin doctors and alarm bells sound loud but are faulty in fact. After all and it is true, we need to realize that the last fiscal year’s budget surged to a record 1.42 trillion dollars. That is more than three times the fiscal 2008 levels. But, don’t despair too much for the Nation, yet. From all the data we are still OK. First, the federal tax burden is at its lowest level since the postWorld War II period. As a percentage of gross domestic product (output of all goods and services), that all important statistic, revenues stood at 15.8 percent in fiscal year 2009 as calculated by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO). As the investigative arm of the U.S. Congress, it

reports facts not political noise. Second, the CBO projections revenue will rise 18.7 percent of GDP in fiscal year 2011. That projected spending will decline in terms of GPD to 22.8 percent, a touch above the usual number. Third, compared with citizens of other industrialized countries, Americans pay relatively low taxes. Federal, state, and local taxes all added together amounted to 26.9 percent of GDP in 2008. Compare that figure with the average 19 European members of the Organizations for Economic Cooperation and Development and their total taxes in those countries is 38.8 percent. The key reason for Europe’s higher tax burden is cost of government paid health care. The trajectory of U.S. health care costs is a key-determinant of whether the politicians can rein in our deficits. Health care trajectory is clearly on an upward thrust due to society’s aging population. What is of interest is that over the last 30 years, the Congress and federal budgets have been balanced only four times, notes Mr. Horney, of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities. He and Mr. Josh Biven of the Economic Policy Institute are both based in Washington, DC. Mr. Biven flat out said, “ A completely fully balanced Federal Budget isn’t really necessary at any point in time, it is just nice.” “ASK DR. J” is a syndicated column by Michael K.

Got the job? Now get up to speed BY MILDRED L. CULP WORKWISE FEATURES

Many of the millions of job-hunting Americans – unemployed or underemployed – need to be prepared for a hiring agreement requiring getting their skills up to speed. This condition will arise regardless of age, because long-term unemployed and underemployed may be viewed as having outdated skills. Dexterity with technology, entrepreneurial concepts and execution, and on-the-job relationships will be the three most urgent skills. How can you improve them in short order? Don’t forget the most important skill of all – interpersonal, based on good communication. John Rooney, who directs the M.A. Program in Clinical Counseling Psychology and is an emeritus professor at Philadelphia’s La Salle University, mentions that “people need to be able to collaborate to reach a common goal. That helps them be more effective and tends to give them more satisfaction.” If you’ve been job hunting a long time or working in isolated environments, these skills might be rusty. Princess Clark-Wendel of Chicago’s Princess


Princess Clark-Wendel (right) consults with a client employed at a Chicago hospital who wants to become a full-time real estate broker while she studies to become an R.N. Clark-Wendel’s Princess Clark Consulting Inc., is based in Chicago. Clark Consulting Inc., consults with people changing jobs and others who want to find new opportunities to increase their earnings. “I make them see that we’ve moved from a manufacturing economy to a more technology- and knowledge-based economy,” she says. “Their skill set, just like their iPods and cell phones, changes every year or becomes outdated. Technology is

ever-evolving; so they must evolve as well.” David Gammel, president of High Context Consulting L.L.C., in Salisbury, Md., indicates that as the cost of technology declines, “the ability to crunch numbers and target messages can now be had for cents or for free. This is a tremendous opportunity for a person or organization to be entrepreneurial in developing

products and marketing services.” He emphasizes that entrepreneurial behavior can be learned, that it’s an essential skill.

STRATEGIC PLAN If only for cost-savings, Clark-Wendel says, your boss will be motivated to help you. “Take good notes of what you do well and what value you bring to the organization,” she suggests. “Then negoti-

ate a three-to-six-month action plan to ramp up your skill set.” Be entrepreneurial, Gammel advises, by “taking ownership of your project and your future, regardless of whether your boss is supportive.” Both Rooney and Gammel comment that you “learn by doing.” Rooney says to “take initiative in interacting with people on the job or in a volunteer situation. Practice collaborating. This may involve a little risk. Learn from your successes and failures. We’re all in the habit of relating to people certain ways. For example, if you think compliments are insincere, give sincere ones. As you do, check reactions and find ways of expressing your sincerity – not necessarily out loud – affirming other people and your value and respect for them.” Gammel, who helps organizations use technology more effectively, suggests you “talk with your boss about how you can find opportunities to stretch entrepreneurially.” He also recommends being open and flexible in creating outcomes customers and employers want and abandoning “procedures, processes and projects” that no longer work.

Rooney stresses: • Obtain feedback from people you trust; • Communicate clearly, not vaguely and ambivalently; • Listen to others to understand why they think what they do; and • Find middle ground for compromise when there’s disagreement. “Identify a compromise that you both feel good about afterward,” he says. All of these people advocate learning. Clark-Wendel favors it through educational institutions, online and, on the job, across the generations (with you sharing your knowledge). Use your fine-tuned interpersonal skills to identify and partner with others as resources. Be one yourself. Rooney mentions that there are lots of workshops that can help, even if their quality is mixed. “Technology is too important to leave to IT these days,” Gammel observes. “I think technology is a core tool for anyone who wants to be entrepreneurial in an organization. Read. Look beyond the walls where you work.” DR. MILDRED L. CULP, Workwise Features, is an award-winning journalist. E-mail questions or comments to culp@workwise. net.

END OF THE ROAD: N.C. State, Elon booted from NCAA baseball tourney. 2D Sports Editor: Mark McKinney (336) 888-3556

SHE’LL TAKE PARIS: Schiavone captures French Open women’s crown. 7D


DURHAM – Of all the amazing basketball accomplishments credited to John Wooden, who died Friday evening at the age of 99, his remarkable run of 10 NCAA championships over 12 seasons stands above them all. At the beginning, in the middle and near the end, the Triangle’s trio of proud programs played a part in UCLA’s dozen years of dominance. “I remember telling him one time, ‘You know John, you never did thank me publicly for something,’” former Duke coach Vic Bubas said Saturday from his Okatie, S.C., home. “He said, ‘For what?’ And I said, ‘For launching your career.’ “He just laughed.” In 1964, Bubas and the Blue Devils were seeking their first NCAA title against Wooden and the Bruins, who also were looking for their first title in Wooden’s 16th season with the program. UCLA, led by Walt Hazzard, prevailed over Jeff Mullins and the Blue Devils by a 98-83 score. While Duke, despite being in the midst of a stretch of three Final Four appearances in four seasons, would have to wait until 1991 to claim its first crown, the title started Wooden down his legendary path. “I’m just grateful that the greatest coach of these modern times was the kind of person he was,

along with being the winner that everybody recognizes him for,” said Bubas, now 83 years old. Wooden’s first title came at Duke’s expense, but Bubas’ alma mater – N.C. State – eventually ended a string of seven straight titles. In 1974, a UCLA program that had won 38 consecutive NCAA Tournament games traveled to Greensboro for the Final Four and fell to David Thompson and the Wolfpack 80-77 in double overtime. While N.C. State went on to knock off Marquette for its first title, Wooden coached one more season and got his 10th championship in the process. “We had the great fortune of ending their sevenyear run. We were very proud to do that,” said N.C. State assistant coach Monte Towe, who was the Wolfpack’s point guard in 1974. “He was a great coach and great person.” Wooden, in between his title victory over Duke and title loss to N.C. State, crossed paths with North Carolina and legendary coach Dean Smith. In the 1968 title game, the only meeting between Smith and Wooden, Lew Alcindor (now Kareem AbdulJabbar) and UCLA triumphed 78-55. Wooden eventually totaled a record 12 Final Fours. Smith – who retired in 1997 – and current Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski rank second with 11. All told, Wooden was 63 against Triangle teams: 4-2 vs. Duke, 1-0 vs. UNC and 1-1 vs. N.C. State.




The 1975 National Basketball Championship banner hangs above a wreath placed next to the seat where former basketball coach John Wooden would attend games at UCLA’s Pauley Pavilion in Los Angeles on Saturday. The 1975 championship was Wooden’s tenth and final. Wooden died Friday night at the age of 99.

major catastrophes for him to miss out on the Chase. Still, even Johnson admits he’s not exactly been at his coolly efficient best Johnson of late. “I’ve always had that good rhythm of walking that tightrope, and you step over it from time to time,” he said. “Lately I’ve been stepping on the wrong side of that line.” He did it twice last weekend at Charlotte, where a pair of wrecks sent retreating to the garage. He gamely headed back to the track after repairs, though the sight of Johnson running a dinged up car 35 laps behind the leaders at a place where he’s won six times bordered on the bizarre. It was just the latest in a series of mishaps that have taken some of the steam out of Johnson’s start, when he won three of the


t’s funny how the memory can play tricks on us from time to time. I was thinking about the history of NASCAR Cup action at Pocono Raceway and for the life of me, it seemed like one driver swept the season races there every three or four years. So, I dusted off the NASCAR record book to see if I was correct. Not surprisingly to regular readers of this

HPU’s Austin Dillon trucks to career-best finish. 4D first five races and filled the rest of the series with a sense of “here we go again” dread. Yet Johnson hasn’t been back to Victory Lane since taking the checkered flag at Bristol on March 21. No biggie for most drivers. A veritable lifetime for Johnson. He won the pole at Talladega but got caught up in a wreck with six laps to go. Two weeks later at Darlington he crashed for his third DNF of the season. Things weren’t much better at Dover, where he slogged to 16th. He gambled and lost at the All-Star race. Then he spent last Sunday getting too friendly with the wall at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Is he distracted? It’s kind of hard

not to be when you’re expecting your first child. Johnson and wife Chandra will welcome a baby girl in July and Johnson has done his best to help out at home when he can. Ask him about putting together the nursery and he lights up. “Lots of pink,” he says before struggling – as most expectant fathers do – to describe some of the stuffed animals that decorate the room. He’s got time to learn. And he’s got plenty of time to figure things out on the track, too. Johnson survived a similar lull last summer, when he managed just one top-10 in six races starting in Watkins Glen and ending in Richmond. There was the 14-race winless streak in 2007. The forgettable two months in 2006 in which he didn’t even crack the top 10. All of those seasons ended in championships.

Johnson ready to get back on track at Pocono LONG POND, Pa. (AP) – Jimmie Johnson hears the buzz. It’s been kind of hard to avoid during the four-time defending NASCAR champion’s recent slide. A single top-10 in five races. Two crashes. Some bad racing luck. Driver error. No victories since early spring. Do the performances fail to meet the impossibly high standard Johnson’s Hendrick Motorsports team has set for itself during its record-breaking run? Sure. Are they proof that the cracks in Johnson’s dominance are finally starting to show? Not exactly. “You read the headlines and it’s like the No. 48 team is shutting down,” Johnson said. Hardly. Johnson sits seventh in points heading into today’s 500-mile race at Pocono, where he’ll start 25th at the massive 2.5-mile oval. Halfway through NASCAR’s regular season, it would take a series of


feature, I was way off the mark. The first Cup event at the unique Long Pond, Pa. raceway was August 4, 1974. Starting in 1975, the track hosted a pair of Cup races annually. There have been just five drivers to sweep at Pocono in a calendar year. Bobby Allison was the first to turn the trick in 1982, followed by Bill Elliott in 1985, Tim Richmond in 1986, Bobby Labonte in

1999 and Denny Hamlin in 2006. Richard Petty won that first Pocono race in 1974 and posted victories in two of the first three Cup events at the triangular, 2.5-mile track. It will be interesting to see if today’s winner can return next month and make it six season sweeps at Pocono.

Blue Jays trip Yanks in 14 THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

TORONTO – Aaron Hill singled home the winning run in the 14th inning and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the New York Yankees 3-2 on Saturday. Facing right-hander Chad Gaudin (0-3), New York’s sixth pitcher of the game, Edwin Encarnacion led off the bottom of the 14th with a walk, then took second on Fred Lewis’ sacrifice bunt. Hill followed with a single to center, scoring Encarnacion without a throw. Vernon Wells and Alex Gonzalez hit solo home runs for the Blue Jays, who lead the major leagues with 96 homers, and Casey Janssen (4-0) pitched two innings for the win. Derek Jeter hit a two-run homer and Yankees starter Andy Pettitte allowed two runs and five hits in 72⁄3 innings with three walks and season-high 10 strikeouts. Blue Jays left-hander Ricky Romero allowed two runs and five hits in eight innings. He walked four and struck out seven.

RANGERS 6, RAYS 1 ARLINGTON, Texas – Tommy Hunter pitched a five-hitter in his season debut and Josh Hamilton homered for Texas. Hunter (1-0), called up from Triple-A Oklahoma earlier in the day, struck out four and didn’t issue a walk. He retired 14 of the last 16 he faced in his second career complete game. Hunter’s other complete game came against Seattle on Sept. 13, 2009. Hamilton continued his hot June with a two-run blast in the first, and is 10 for 22 this month to raise his average from .281 to .299. James Shields (5-4) gave up six runs – three earned – and 10 hits in seven innings, losing for the fourth time in his last five decisions.

INDIANS 3, WHITE SOX 1 CHICAGO – Austin Kearns had an RBI single in the fourth inning and scored on a balk, and Mitch Talbot pitched seven strong innings to help the Cleveland Indians beat the Chicago White Sox 3-1 on Saturday night. For the second straight time this season, Talbot (74) outpitched White Sox starter Jake Peavy. Talbot allowed one run on six hits. He struck out five and walked three. The rookie right-hander has won all three of his starts against the White Sox with a 1.57 ERA.

ANGELS 11, MARINERS 2 SEATTLE – Torii Hunter had three hits, three RBIs and keyed a decisive six-run sixth inning to lead Los Angeles. The Angels won for the ninth time in 11 games, and improved to 5-1 on a 14-game road trip – the team’s longest trek in eight years. Ervin Santana (6-3) won his fifth consecutive start, allowing one run and seven hits in six innings, and Los Angeles moved a season-high two games over .500. Garrett Olson (0-1) took the loss after spot starter Ryan Rowland-Smith went five innings, allowing only four hits and a run.

METS 6, MARLINS 1 NEW YORK – Jonathon Niese pitched brilliantly in his return from the disabled list and David Wright hit a rare homer at Citi Field, sending the New York Mets to a 6-1 victory over the Florida Marlins on Saturday. Wright drove in three runs and rookie Ike Davis went 4 for 4 to break out of a mini-slump as New York improved to 21-9 at home with its seventh straight home win. Jeff Francoeur had an RBI single and Ruben Tejada a run-scoring double off Nate Robertson (4-5).

CARDINALS 5, BREWERS 4 (11) ST. LOUIS – Colby Rasmus singled home the winning run in the 11th to lift St. Louis. Newly acquired Aaron Miles singled with one out in the 11th and advanced to second on Yadier Molina’s base hit to center. Rasmus, who had three hits and three RBIs, laced a shot just in front of outfielder Jim Edmonds, who held on to the ball with Miles already around third.

PHILLIES 6, PADRES 2 PHILADELPHIA – Jamie Moyer pitched a sevenhitter and Jayson Werth homered to help the Philadelphia Phillies break out of their offensive slump with a 6-2 win over the San Diego Padres. Ryan Howard went 2 for 4 with a double and two RBIs, and Chase Utley also drove in a run for the Phillies, who won their second straight. Philadelphia had been mired in a team batting slump, with its prolific offense scoring 29 runs over the last 15 games. The Phillies went 5-10 in those games.


N.C. State first baseman Harold Riggens (25) tags out Stony Brook runner Justin Echevarria in the sixth inning at the NCAA Div. I Baseball Regionals at BB&T Coastal Field on Saturday in Myrtle Beach, S.C. The Wolfpack’s season ended with a 6-2 loss.

Stony Brook bounces Wolfpack MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) – Tyler Johnson helped Stony Brook reach its first NCAA goals. Coach Matt Senk hope the Seawolves are ready to achieve even more at the Myrtle Beach Regional. Johnson pitched eight innings of six-hit ball and Stony Brook used a six-run first inning to eliminate N.C. State 6-2 on Saturday. It was the first NCAA tournament win in Division I for the Seawolves (30-26), who had been 0-5 in college’s top tier before this victory. “I’m not exactly sure where to begin,” said Senk, who started as Stony Brook’s coach in 1991 when it played in Division II. “I’m beyond excited for our players.” The Seawolves took away much of the excitement early on, scoring six times off first-time Wolfpack starter Anthony Tzamtzis (4-4). Then it was Johnson’s turn. The sophomore righty kept State off balance much of the game. Johnson (10-3) left after eight, allowing two runs and striking out 10. Senk says his players will enjoy the historic win, then look to add to

the success on Sunday against College of Charleston or Coastal Carolina in another elimination game. “We’ll enjoy this,” Senk said. “But our goal is to keep playing.” Johnson’s scariest moment came in the second when State (38-24) had scored a run and had the bases loaded with Drew Poulk at bat. But Poulk, who hit a grand slam against College of Charleston on Friday night, grounded into a force at third to end the threat. “You guys could probably see I was getting pretty tired out there,” Johnson said. “But after that at bat, it kind of helped me get on a roll.” The Wolfpack didn’t get more than one runner on base again until John Gianis and Dan Canella singled to start the ninth off reliever William Carmona. However, Carmona got the next three outs to keep Stony Brook’s season alive. State hadn’t gone 0-2 in regional play since 1999, a span of seven appearances. Coach Elliott Avent said he and his staff were looking at the best way to win the regional after losing the opener to College of

Charleston and thought Tzamtzis’ velocity would keep the America East Conference champs on their heels. Instead, Tzamtzis gave up three hits, hit two batters and walked a third. The freshman didn’t make it out of the inning. Michael Stephan’s two-run single was the big hit of the first inning for Stony Brook. Avent was ejected in the eighth when he complained about a wide strike zone to home plate umpire Jason Venzon. It was the second straight game the Wolfpack fell behind early – they trailed College of Charleston 70 after four innings in their NCAA opener – and could not battle back. It was a bitter pill to swallow for a club that played for the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament title less than a week ago. “We were confident entering NCAA play,” said Vance Williams, who pitched nearly six innings of scoreless ball in relief of Tzamtzis. “We thought we could handle things.”

North Carolina routs Cal in regional NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – Dillon Hazlett and Ben Bunting homered to back strong pitching by Matt Harvey and North Carolina rolled to a 12-3 victory in the Norman NCAA regional late Friday night. The Tar Heels (37-20) met top-seeded Oklahoma (4515) in a winner’s bracket game late Saturday night. California (29-24) faced Oral Roberts (35-26) in an elimination game.

Cal starter Justin Jones (10-6) failed to get an out in the first inning and Hazlett’s home run highlighted a six-run first for the Tar Heels. Bunting hit a two-run homer in the fourth. Harvey (8-3) worked six innings, gave up two runs on four hits. Mark Canha hit his 10th homer of the season for Cal.

Mercer eliminates Elon from tourney ATLANTA (AP) – Thomas Carroll and Joe Winker collected four RBIs apiece and Mercer used six pitchers to beat Elon 13-7 in the losers’ bracket of the Atlanta regional on Saturday. Mercer (38-23) will play today against the Georgia Tech-Alabama loser. Elon (38-24) was swept from the

double-elimination format. Winker’s two-run doubles in the first and third helped the Bears take a 6-1 lead. Carroll’s ninth homer, a three-run shot, fueled a four-run fourth that put Mercer ahead 10-1. Matt McCall started for the Bears, but left with one out in the fourth after allowing three hits, four runs and five walks. David Teasley (6-1)

took over and earned the win, giving up one hit, one run and one walk while striking out one over 12⁄3 innings. Elon cut the lead to 10-4 on Alex Swim’s grand slam in the fifth. Phoenix starter Ken Ferrer (9-6) took the loss, yielding nine hits, six runs and one walk while striking out five over three innings.

Fowler maintains three-shot lead

Celtics scheme ways to slow Kobe in Game 2


DUBLIN, Ohio – Rickie Fowler is one round closer to joining the youth movement on the PGA Tour. On another day of rain at the Memorial, the 21-year-old Fowler extended his bogey-free streak to 52 holes and made enough birdies for a 3-under 69 Saturday that gave him a three-shot lead going into the final round at Muirfield Village. Fowler was at 16-under 200 and had the largest 54-hole lead at the Memorial since Tiger Woods led by six in 2000. A victory would be the third by a player 22 years old or young in the last six weeks. Ricky Barnes, who played with Woods, dazzled the large gallery with a 10-under 62 and was at 203, along with Tim Petrovic (68). Woods, the defending champion, shot a 69 with a double bogey and was 10 shots behind. Phil Mickelson also failed to take advantage of the soft and vulnerable course with a 70, leaving him eight shots back. AP

PRICE, ARMOUR III SHARE LEAD WEST DES MOINES, Iowa – Nick Price topped the secondround leaderboard again in the Principal Charity Classic, shooting a 6-under 65 to match Tommy Armour III at 10-under 132 in the Champions Tour event at Glen Oaks Country Club. Armour followed his opening 63 with a 69.

Jockey Mike Smith celebrates after riding Drosselmeyer to win the 142nd running of the Belmont Stakes in Elmont, N.Y. on Saturday.

Drosselmeyer pulls upset in Belmont Stakes NEW YORK (AP) – An underachiever finally came through in the $1 million Belmont Stakes and gave Hall of Famers Bill Mott and Mike Smith milestones they’ve been seeking for decades. Drosselmeyer, left out of the Kentucky Derby because he failed to earn enough money, outlasted a couple of Dudes and held off Fly Down by three-quarters of a length to win the final leg of the Triple Crown. The win by the gleaming 3-yearold chestnut colt ended Smith’s 0 for 12 riding record in the Belmont, and gave Mott his first victory in a Tri-

ple Crown race. “To finally win this one,” said Smith, “unbelievable.” First Dude took the lead, but couldn’t hold off Drosselmeyer in the stretch and finished third after giving way to Fly Down in the final strides. Ice Box, the 9-5 favorite trained by Nick Zito, was never in contention and finished ninth in the 12-horse field. Zito’s Fly Down ended up as the 5-1 second choice. Game on Dude was fourth, followed by Uptowncharlybrown, Stay Put, Interactif, Stately Victor, Ice Box, Make Music for Me, Dave In Dixie and Spangled Star.

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) – Rajon Rondo often enjoys returning to his room at the Celtics’ hotel and watching tape of a Boston victory before he goes to sleep. The losses, not so much. Yet Rondo did just that after the NBA finals opener Thursday with teammate Kendrick Perkins, ordering room service and watching the replay of the Los Angeles Lakers’ decisive win. In his own room elsewhere in the hotel, Kevin Garnett did the same thing – twice. “You learn a lot about yourself when you lose,” Garnett said. “You learn a lot about yourself when you’re down. This shows what you’re made of.” While Rondo and Perkins muted the television, Garnett turned it up to hear every unflattering thing said about the Celtics. Yet all three came away from the film session with two conclusions: Kobe Bryant is awfully good, but Boston still can compete with the Lakers. “That might be the

first time after a loss that I watched a game again so quickly,” Rondo said Saturday before Boston’s workout at the Lakers’ training complex. “This isn’t the first round any more. You don’t have a lot of time to get things right. I think I correct my mistakes better when I see them.” Rondo, Perkins and their teammates all promised increased intensity in every aspect of their considerable games when they look to avoid an 0-2 series hole tonight in Game 2. After staggering into this finals rematch with an unimpressive effort, Boston hopes focus and adjustments will make their trip out West worthwhile. “Everybody gets punched,” Celtics big man Glen Davis said. “Everybody gets knocked out. It’s about how you get up. We got punched. We got dazed. It’s about how you react to it.” Bryant’s defense on Rondo was a key to the Lakers Game 1 success.

Bodine, 61, glad to be back in Cup THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

POCONO NOTEBOOK: Geoff Bodine has high hopes for his first NASCAR Sprint Cup race in six years. Just qualifying for Sunday’s Pocono 500 isn’t enough for the 1986 Daytona 500 winner in his bid to make a comeback. “Deep inside me, there’s one thing I would like to do. This is a stretch, I know,” Bodine said after practice Saturday at Pocono Raceway. “I’d like to be the oldest driver to win a NASCAR cup race. ... I’m only 61.” That distinction currently belongs to Harry Gant, who was 52 when he won at Michigan in 1992. “There’s no age limit, so why not? There’s no restrictions, so why not,” Bodine said. “I really have nothing to prove, it’s really not about that. I need (racing), I need it to be happy.” Bodine, who overcame a fiery crash in a Truck Series race in 2000, hasn’t run a full Cup schedule since 1999. He’s mostly known these days for helping design the four-man bobsled that won a gold medal for the U.S. at the Vancouver Olympics. Bodine said after practice Saturday that he adheres to a healthy diet to stay sharp. He said he eats one full meal a day, and otherwise stays energized by taking in nuts and a nutritional drink called MonaVie, for which he is also a distributor. “I feel good, my mind is working good. I feel like when I drive a car, I can relate to the crew better about what to do ... better than I could back in the 1990s,” he said. Bodine failed to qualify in two races last year, though he did finish 26th in a Truck race at Atlanta in March. He finished 39th in his last Sprint Cup series race, at Dover in 2004. While he has high hopes for a victory Sunday, Bodine knows the challenge will be steep for his Tommy Baldwin Racing team. On a one-race deal, Bodine has acknowledged he likely won’t finish the race since the car is without sponsorship and has been mostly a start-and-park operation.


Car owner Richard Petty (left) gives advice to driver Kasey Kahne during practice Saturday for today’s 500-mile NASCAR race at Pocono Raceway in Pennsylvania. ROBBY GORDON DISAPPOINTED Robby Gordon believes his struggling Cup program will be back despite another setback this weekend at Pocono. Gordon hired veteran Ted Musgrave to get his No. 7 Toyota in the field for Sunday’s race, hoping he could make it back from the Baja 500 in Mexico by the time the green flag drops. Instead, Gordon spent the weekend south of the border after Musgrave’s qualifying speed of 164.456 mph wasn’t good enough to get into the 43-car field. Gordon admitted he was “disappointed” in the outcome but applauded Musgrave’s efforts. “Despite missing the race, Ted and team made a valiant effort to get the No. 7 into the race,” he said. “I believe that all successful companies go through times like this.” Gordon is in his sixth year as an owner/driver, but consistency has been elusive. He has just one finish inside the top 15 this year and he slipped out of the top

35 in owner points following last week’s race in Charlotte, forcing him to go through qualifying to earn a spot in the field.

WAITING FOR BABY Jimmie Johnson is hoping the daughter he and wife Chandra are expecting holds off until the mid-July due date. If his little girl opts to come early, like say during the race at Daytona on July 3 or in Chicago on July 10, things could get interesting. Really interesting. The backup plans include having Aric Almirola at the ready in case Johnson needs to leave in a hurry. “The first goal for me would be to drive a lap and get some points,” Johnson said. “But it just depends on the situation. There could be a situation where I’ve got to make a tough decision.” Or not so tough according to crew chief Chad Knaus, who told Johnson there was “no way” the four-time defending series champion was going to miss the blessed event, even if it means Johnson has to skip a race.

Gifford hopes Revolution sparks success M

oney is the lifeblood of a racing team. With it, cars can get to the track. Without it, a driver’s career can stall like an engine with vapor lock. At age 21, Ryan Gifford already knows that full well on a pretty big scale. He SPORTS is listed as a develGreer opmental Smith driver for ■■■ Richard Childress Racing and is competing in the NASCAR East Series, which will go 100 laps today at Martinsville Speedway in a doubleheader with a 200lap Modified race. The catch is the 21year-old Gifford, a dirttrack racer from Tennessee, won’t be in a car out of the Childress shop. After catching a break and getting a chance with RCR beginning in 2008 at age 18, sponsorship for his cars from Shell/Pennzoil dried up at the end of last season.

To keep racing, Gifford went through NASCAR’s diversity combine last fall and was one of those chosen for the program this year. Today, he’ll make his fourth start for the NASCAR-backed diversity team, Revolution Racing, out of Mooresville. RCR provided Revolution one of Gifford’s cars. “Our sponsorship went away, so I’m shuffled over there,” Gifford said. “I’m also trying to find some money to run some late model races and ARCA races, but it is tough to find funding right now.” Gifford became acquainted with budget limitations while his racing was funded by his family. Growing up in Winchester, Tenn. (northwest of Chattanooga and southeast of Nashville), Gifford raced go-carts from age eight until switching to crate engine late models at age 15. After winning three poles in his first 10 starts at local track in Winchester, he started traveling to different tracks from South Caro-

lina to Louisiana up to Kentucky. “We decided that you didn’t learn much running up front,” Gifford said. “We felt it was best to go to different places and learn by having to pass cars.” At the end of th 2007 season, he decided to attend a dirt-track racing school run by Dale McDowell, a noted dirt-track racer whom Childress hired to help oversee the dirt-track cars raced by Childress’ grandsons Austin and Ty Dillon. “Dale said, ‘you’re a pretty good driver and I’m going to talk to some people for you,’” Gifford recalled. “And he called back and said they were doing a driver development combine with 16 different drivers. So he said, ‘why don’t you come with me and help work on the cars, and maybe at the end, I can sneak you in there so you can make some laps and show them what you’ve got.’” He showed enough that Mike Dillon called, offering the opportunity to

drive for RCR. “That was a lucky break,” Gifford said. “My family has all its money tied up our racing team. We had gone about as far as we could go.” Gifford stayed on the dirt his first year with RCR, winning three races. He transitioned to asphalt last year, posting two runner-up finishes in five East Series starts. He even lived with the Dillons in Lewisville for a year but now resides in Welcome. “I feel like Ty and Austin are my brothers,” Gifford said. Being with Childress was positive in ways other than getting the opportunity to drive topnotch equipment, Gifford said. “I learned how to work with people,” Gifford said. “I learned how to work with a team. I learned how to use every person in a company to make the company better and make myself better.” Not that the people at Revolution Racing don’t know what they are doing. Paired with crew

chief Lee McCall, Gifford post a pair of fourths in his first two events this season and was running in the top five at Iowa before tire trouble resulted in a 24th-place finish. The switch is teaching Gifford how to accomplish the same result on a smaller budget than his teams at RCR. “We’re making the most on a smaller budget,” Gifford said. “It’s a different environment. Revolution has a smaller budget but we make it work and it is heartwarming. Not having the funding to go to the track every week and go test, it makes it harder. We’re making it happen. We are always looking for money.” He’s looking for money so he can return to Childress and be teammates with the Dillons again. “Everybody from Richard, all through the company, I’m pretty close with,” Gifford said. “So I’d like to get back over there and race with those guys.” | 888-3556

Gifford, Stefanik capture poles at Martinsville ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

MARTINSVILLE, Va. – When Mike Stefanik first raced at Martinsville Speedway, Ryan Gifford hadn’t been born. But Saturday the oldster and the youngster were the fastest in qualifying for Sunday’s Made In America Whelen 200 and the UNOH Performance 200. Stefanik is the defending champion in the Made In America 200 NASCAR Modified Tour race and has five Martinsville wins to his credit.

Dillon takes third at Texas FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) – Todd Bodine stayed in front for two late restarts, including a green-white-checkered finish, to become a six-time winner in the NASCAR Truck Series at Texas Motor Speedway on Friday night. It was his 18th career victory and his first since winning at Texas last June – a stretch of 24 races. Bodine was on the inside for the final restart, and got a tremendous jump that kept his Toyota ahead for those final two laps. Ron Hornaday, who had been battling Bodine for the lead most of the race, slipped all the way to ninth in that final surge. Johnny Sauter finished second in his Chevrolet, ahead of polesitter Austin Dillon, the rookie driver and High Point University student who is the 20-year-old grandson of NASCAR Sprint Cup car owner Richard Childress. The third place was Dillon’s best finish.

Coach Wooden remembered as great man




A look at the life of John Wooden: 1910— Born in Martinsville, Ind. 1927-29 — Leads Martinsville H.S. to one Indiana state title and two runner-up finishes, earning all-state honors all three seasons. 1930-32 — Wins letters in basketball and baseball his freshman year at Purdue and earns All-America honors from 1930-32. He captained the Boilermakers in 1931 and 1932 and led them to two Big Ten titles and the 1932 national championship. 1932 — Wooden is awarded the Big Ten medal for outstanding merit and proficiency in scholarship and athletics. 1932 — Marries Nell Riley and accepts a teaching and coaching position at Dayton (Ky.) H.S. His first team goes 6-11, the only losing record Wooden ever has as a player or coach. 1934— Coaches basketball, baseball and tennis and teaches English at South Bend Central H.S. He finishes his 11-year prep coaching career with a 218-42 record. 1943-46 — Serves as a Lieutenant in the Navy during World War II. 1943 — Wooden is selected to the all-time All-American Basketball team by the Helms Athletic Foundation. 1946 — Following his discharge from the service, Wooden accepts position as athletic director and basketball and baseball coach at Indiana Teachers College, now known as Indiana State. His first team won the Indiana Collegiate Conference and received an invitation to the NAIB tournament in Kansas City, but Wooden, who had a black player on his team, refused the invitation because the NAIB had a policy banning African Americans. The rule was changed the next year, and Wooden led Indiana State to another conference title. 1948 — Accepts position as head basketball coach at UCLA. 1960 — Inducted into the National Basketball Hall of Fame as a player. 1964 — Wins the first of his 10 national titles at UCLA with a 98-83 win over Duke. The Bruins post the first of four 30-0 seasons under Wooden. 1964 — Inducted in the inaugural class of the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame. 1965 — Pauley Pavilion is opened and Wooden recruits New York City big man Lew Alcindor to play at UCLA. Alcindor, who changed his name to Kareem AbdulJabbar after graduation, leads the Bruins to three national titles and just two losses over three seasons. 1966 — UCLA wins the first of a record seven straight NCAA titles. 1967 — Wins the first of a record five AP coach of the year awards. 1969 — Martinsville names a street and the high school gymnasium after Wooden. 1973 — Inducted into the National Basketball Hall of Fame as a coach, the first person inducted in more than one category. 1973 — Is named Sportsman of the Year by “Sports Illustrated.” 1974 — The Bruins’ record 88-game winning streak is snapped with a 71-70 loss at Notre Dame. 1974 — UCLA ends its run of consecutive NCAA championships and saw its record of 38 straight NCAA tournament wins. 1975 — Announces after 75-74 NCAA semifinal win over Louisville that he is retiring after 27 seasons as head coach at UCLA. After winning the 10th national title under Wooden with a 92-85 win over Kentucky, Wooden’s overall career record stood at 885-203, including 620-147 at UCLA. His record in 12 Final Four appearances was 21-3. 1977 — The John Wooden Award is presented for the first time to the national player of the year, UCLA’s Marques Johnson. 1985 — Nell Wooden dies after 53 years of marriage. 1985 — Is presented the Bellarmine Medal of Excellence.

John Wooden, shown in this Dec. 9, 2005, file photo, died at the age of 99 Friday night in Los Angeles.




Reaction to John Wooden’s death Friday: “It’s kind of hard to talk about Coach Wooden simply, because he was a complex man. But he taught in a very simple way. He just used sports as a means to teach us how to apply ourselves to any situation. He set quite an example. He was more like a parent than a coach. He really was a very selfless and giving human being, but he was a disciplinarian. We learned all about those aspects of life that most kids want to skip over. He wouldn’t let us do that.” – Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. “He was always the boss. He always knew what to say. Even in the heyday of winning and losing, you could almost discuss anything with him. He always had that composure and wit about him.” — former UCLA star Jamaal Wilkes. “Today, we’ve lost a giant in all of sport with the passing of Coach Wooden. Quite likely, his accomplishments as a college basketball coach will never be matched. Neither will the impact he had on his players or the greater basketball community. Many have called Coach Wooden the ’gold standard’ of coaches. I believe he was the ’gold standard’ of people and carried himself with uncommon grace, dignity and humility. Coach Wooden’s name is synonymous with excellence, and deservedly so. He was one of the great leaders - in any profession - of his generation. We are blessed that the sport of basketball benefitted from his talents for so long. Coach Wooden and his wisdom will be sorely missed.” — Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski.

John Wooden made college basketball history with 10 NCAA championships. His greatest success, though, may have been as a teacher, influencing players and fellow coaches with his wisdom. Jim Harrick was the only coach in the postWooden era at UCLA to win a national championship in 1995. Wooden had to be persuaded to attend the Final Four that year in Seattle, and he slipped out unnoticed before the final buzzer sounded on the Bruins’ victory. Although he regularly attended the Bruins’ games at Pauley Pavilion after retiring in 1975, Wooden didn’t impose on his successors. “He had as little ego as anybody I’ve ever known. He would never give advice, but he would always give opinions,” Harrick said. “I happened to be the coach during the time that went from the short, short pants to what he called the bloomers. He thought that was the worst thing that ever happened to basketball.” Unassuming throughout his Hall of Fame years as a player and coach, Wooden’s life was just as awe-inspiring as his records. Wooden died Friday night at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles, where he had been since May 26. He was 99. Jim Boeheim of Syracuse said when he thinks of a basketball coach, “the only one I ever thought of was Coach Wooden.”

Schiavone beats Stosur in Paris PARIS (AP) – For more than a decade as a professional tennis player, and nearly 30 years as a person, Francesca Schiavone waited and worked to reach this particular moment on this particular court, and there was no way she was going to conceal her excitement about arriving. As Schiavone moved closer, point by important point, to winning the French Open title, and to giving Italy its first female champion at a Grand Slam tournament, she let everyone watching share in the sheer joy. At 2-all in the second-set tiebreaker of Saturday’s taut final against Samantha Stosur of Australia, Schiavone hit a forehand volley winner and raised a fist, well aware she was four points from victory. Schiavone next smacked a volley to end a nine-stroke exchange and jumped to celebrate. Three points away. A forehand winner followed, and Schiavone screamed. Two points away. She slid through the red clay and, lunging, poked

yet another volley winner. She yelled again, hopping in place. One point away. And then, after delivering a spin-laden backhand from the baseline, Schiavone watched the Schiavone ball glance off Stosur’s racket frame and deflect harmlessly in the wrong direction. Zero points away. The 17th-seeded Schiavone covered her face with both hands, then dropped to the ground and stayed on her back for a few moments, smearing her white outfit with rust-colored clay, relishing the 6-4, 7-6 (2) win over the No. 7seeded Stosur and the many, little steps that brought her there, right where she always believed she could be. Schiavone turns 30 this month, making her the oldest woman since 1969 to win her first Grand Slam championship. On Monday, Schiavone will rise to a career-best No. 6 in the WTA rankings.



PARIS (AP)– A look at the French Open on Saturday: Weather: Sunny. High of 86 degrees Women’s final result: No. 17 Francesca Schiavone of Italy def. No. 7 Samantha Stosur of Australia 6-4, 7-6 (2). Stat of the day: 14 of 15 – how Schiavone fared on points she played at the net. Quote of the day: “I was feeling much more energy – and more and more and more. I couldn’t stop it.” – Schiavone. Today’s men’s final: No. 2 Rafael Nadal of Spain vs. No. 5 Robin Soderling of Sweden. Today’s forecast: Windy, with a chance of rain. High of 77. Today’s TV: NBC, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. EDT. Online: http://www. html


Nadal-Soderling showdown set for French Open final PARIS (AP) – On the way to each of his four French Open championships, Rafael Nadal needed to beat Roger Federer – and did. In 2005, it was in the semifinals. In 2006, 2007 and 2008, it was in the final. There was no Nadal-Federer encounter at Roland Garros last year, because Nadal’s 31-match winning streak in his favorite tournament ended with a stunning fourth-round loss to Robin Soderling. And Nadal-Federer did not appear on the schedule at this year’s French Open, either, because Federer’s title reign ended with a quarterfinal loss to – yes, that’s right – Soderling. So instead, if Nadal is going to join Bjorn Borg as the only men to hoist the clay-court Grand Slam tournament’s trophy at least five times, it will have to be after a victory over Soderling in today’s final.

Zimonjic, Nestor win doubles title PARIS (AP) – Nenad Zimonjic picked up a second Grand Slam title in the space of three days on Saturday after the Serb teamed with Daniel Nestor of Canada to win the men’s doubles at the French Open.

The pair beat defending champions Leander Paes of India and Lukas Dlouhy of the Czech Republic 7-5, 6-2. Zimonjic, who turned 34th Friday, won the mixed doubles Thursday with Katarina Srebotnik of Slovenia.

Fishin’ when they’re bitin’ at Tuckertown T

here are hundreds of reasons a man decides to fish on a specific day. Often the decision is based on having the day off without other prior commitments. This is probably the worst possible reason to decide to go fishing. The best reason to go fishing is because they’re biting. Of course, there are a multitude of problems associated with this reason, you just can’t get off work, your spouse requires your time on a honey-do project, or there’s a dance recital you just can’t miss, but the most difficult one of all is how does one know when the fish are biting? Probably 90 percent of my time is flexible and Thursday I was using some of that flexible time to get one of my cars inspected. I was at one of my favorite places to waste time, Young’s Tire. Young’s Tire is a Mecca for those with flexible schedules. Imagine a tire shop with only two bays, but a multitude of couches, recliners, and other chairs for the comfort of those who need to catch up on the latest gossip in the Ledford/Wallburg area. While Dennis was inspecting my car, I heard a fishing conversation, and I focused my attention on a story of stripers being caught on top-water lures at Tuckertown. Striped bass and top-water lures are one of my favorite combinations, so I involved myself with the conversation instantly. Four hours later, Cherie and I were on Tuckertown, waiting for Ralph Mason, a Winston Salem policeman, to arrive and show us the ropes. Mason also happens to be Captain Ralph Mason, who is a charter boat captain out of Beaufort in his spare time. Mason had experienced a great night of fishing the night before, catching 14 stripers ranging up to 37 inches from 6 p.m. till dark. The fish had come to the surface in a feeding frenzy. It was combat fishing,

my favorite kind. Thursday night was not such hot action, but there were fish to be caught with everyone around us catching at least one or two. My best fish was a 12 pound striper on a Zara SPORTS Spook, not as good as the night before, but not bad. Dick Talking to Mason, I found Jones out there’s a kind of false ■■■ spawn that drives these fish up into the shallower parts of all the Yadkin Chain lakes every year and we were probably on the tail end of it. Stripers spawn every spring, that’s what makes the Roanoke River Striper run happen at Weldon. Fish that are landlocked can’t produce fry because there’s not enough current in any of the lakes to keep the eggs suspended till they hatch. Still, there’s a drive to go upstream when the water temperatures are at the right level and these fish were concentrated in the upper part of the lake. While we didn’t experience a feeding frenzy, there were fish in the water and, by hammering away with spooks, pencil poppers, and other surface lures, we managed to raise a few. According to the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission’s Sergeant, Anthony Sharum, the fish should be in the upper reaches of the lakes for the next few weeks. Since fishing these areas offers a chance at the stripers as well as the usual fare of catfish and largemouth bass, it’s a great fishing opportunity. As always, your best chances are early and late. While the norm dictates the early angler has the best chance and there’s the added benefit of early being the most comfortable weather, Sergeant Sharum advised me the afternoon may be the best time for this fishing. “The fishing is best

when there’s flow and the turbines run when there’s demand. These hot afternoons create a need for electricity to keep air conditioners running. There’s more likely to be flow in afternoons.” No matter which lake you fish, you need to be in the upriver end and be aware of the other name for stripers, rockfish. The fish are likely to be in shallow water over rocks so care is required and shallow draft boats have a big advantage. Were it not for the presence of so many rocks, regular bass fishing gear would do just fine but remember that a 20-pound striper can have his way with you on light tackle and his way is likely to be putting a jagged rock between you and him. Probably the best line for this is a 20 to 30 pound braid that’ll give you strength and abrasion resistance. Remember though, that braid loves to tangle in treble hooks on top-waters. Consider tying a two foot leader of 20 pound mono or fluorocarbon to keep tangles down. I use a triple-surgeons knot for this. Mason uses an Albright.

Spinning tackle and casting tackle both work fine, but the reel must have a quality drag to handle the bigger fish you can encounter. The rod should have sufficient backbone to cast a heavy topwater lure and manhandle a beefy striper away from the rocks for which he’s nicknamed. At the same time, the rod should be light enough to work your lure properly. We anchored up in about 4 feet of fairly fast water below some structure and worked our lures, watching for any action from the blue herons in the area. Sharp-eyed birds are much more likely to spot fish or bait near the surface than you are, and both are a prime spot for a cast. The fish didn’t begin to hit until almost dark. Cherie and I caught four from 8:00 till about 8:45 p.m. As with almost any top-water fishing, you should watch your lure at all times, If you get a burble or a strike, let the lure stay in that location for a few seconds and twitch. In the current we were in, you could just let the lure hang there as long as you wished. Cherie caught one fish during a long pause between twitches. The fish may wait for the lure to stop before he strikes. At lunch on Firday, Ralph Mason said he was impressed that Cherie and I just dropped everything and headed for the river based on his fishing report. “Most folks want to talk about fishing and read about fishing, but when I call them they always have something to do. I’d rather catch fish than talk about it,” he said. My kind of guy, I like to talk about fishing, and I like to write about fishing, but I’d rather catch fish.

Flyers ground Blackhawks, even series PHILADELPHIA (AP) – In a series that has felt like a swap meet with the way the Flyers and Blackhawks have traded goals, Philadelphia found itself with some extra room to work with in the third period of Game 4. Then Chicago roared back, reminding the Flyers and their nervous fans how tight and fast-paced these Stanley Cup finals have been. Mike Richards, Matt Carle and Claude Giroux all

scored first-period goals and Philadelphia withstood a late surge by Chicago to beat the Blackhawks 5-3 on Friday night. With two straight home victories by a total of three goals, goalie Michael Leighton and the Flyers have bounced back to tie the series at 2. Game 5 is tonight in Chicago and there’s no reason to think it won’t be just as intense as the first four. “We were able to stay calm, but it’s a hard way to

win it in the end,” Flyers forward Simon Gagne said. Jeff Carter scored an empty-netter in the final seconds to help the Flyers become the first team this series to win a game by more than one goal. The Flyers, who became the third team in NHL history to win a series after trailing 3-0 in the second round of these playoffs, are now trying to become the third team to win a Stanley Cup after losing the first two on the road.

Walkway at Hospice Home at High Point features 51 bricks inscribed in memory or in honor of someone.

A walkway to remember


Hospice bricks allow families to memorialize loved ones BY JIMMY TOMLIN ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER




IGH POINT – On the surface, the inscribed brick really doesn’t say much. It’s a simple, nine-word message – “Roni Freier Your Loving Memory Is Always With Us” – and it’s signed, “M&M.” But to Mark Freier and his 8-year-old son, Michael – M&M – the brick says everything. To them, Veronica “Roni” Freier was a loving wife and mother, and the brick is their way of cherishing her memory. “It seemed like a good way to honor my wife and to donate to a good cause at the same time,” says Mark Freier, of Trinity. The good cause Freier speaks of is Hospice of the Piedmont, which Thursday afternoon dedicated its new brick tribute walkway, located beside the Hospice Home at High Point. Hospice of the Piedmont provided care for Roni Freier prior to her death from breast cancer in January 2008, so Mark donated the brick as a way of memorializing his late wife and thanking the organization for its loving care for her. The walkway, which leads from the front of Hospice Home to a small solace garden beside the home, features 51 inscribed bricks, donated in memory of a loved one who has died or in honor of someone still living. “Since we opened (Hospice Home) four years ago, we’ve had

Memorial bricks for Hospice of the Piedmont’s tribute walkway can be purchased for $150 apiece. The next installation of bricks will be next spring. Bricks can be purchased online at or at Hospice of the Piedmont, located at 1801 Westchester Drive. For more informtion, call Hospice of the Piedmont at 889-8446.


Bench was purchased by Hospice of the Piedmont board in memory of the late Roy Epperson, a longtime supporter of Hospice. many families ask if there was a way they could memorialize somebody at the facility, to leave behind a tribute,” explains Doug Page, chief financial officer for Hospice of the Piedmont. “So we came up with this idea in conjunction with some of our staff members who had heard a lot of those requests.” According to Page, family members of hospice patients were invited to donate bricks for the walkway at a cost of $150 apiece. More bricks are still

available, though the next installation will not take place until next spring, he says. “I think families have really appreciated having this opportunity,” Page says. “And we’re hoping this will be a place where people can visit time and time again through the years, just to stop in and have a seat and enjoy the quiet.” In addition to the walkway, the garden features a new butterfly bench installed in memory of the late Roy Epperson, a longtime


hospice supporter and board president who died unexpectedly in January. Epperson donated the funds for the garden when Hospice Home opened in 2006 and had planned to donate the bench; when he died, board members decided to get the bench on Epperson’s behalf and dedicate it to his memory. “It will have a lot of meaning for a lot of people here because of all he did for Hospice of the Piedmont,” Page says. For Mark Freier, visiting the garden – including the walkway with the brick inscribed with Roni’s name – is something he plans to do. “I’m sure I’ll go on important dates like our anniversary,” he says. “It seems like a good way to remember her.” | 888-3579

With the senior population expected to reach 72 million by 2025, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, more and more families will be dealing with care decisions. Family caregivers now have a free resource to help guide them through the sometimes complicated maze of home care choices. “The Home Care Solution: A Guide to the Best Choices for Seniors and Those Who Care About Them” has been produced by the Home Instead Senior Care network. The guide provides family caregivers with answers to a number of caregiving questions including: Who provides home care and what do they do? Are all home care companies the same? What questions do you ask when looking for a home care company? How much does home care cost? Featured in the guide are important distinctions between home health care and nonmedical care; the signs to watch for that could signal when a specific type of home care is warranted; the differences between types of caregivers and what families need to know to protect their loved ones; and the various costs involved, including the ways that exist to fund home care. The guide is available free by calling (866) 9961087, or you can download a copy at www.home under the “Resources” tab.

ear Abby: My husband and I are writing about our only daughter, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jessica,â&#x20AC;? who has been married to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ronâ&#x20AC;? for three years. Jessica recently expressed displeasure (initiated by Ron) about how close we are with Ronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parents. They feel our friendship is somehow unusual or threatening. The in-laws are aware of it and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t intend to change their relationship with us. From the time that Jessica began dating Ron, my husband and I formed a lovely and close bond with these people. We include each other at family and holiday gatherings. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re baffled, hurt and resent being told to back off from a relationship we cherish. We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see the logic behind it, and it has put a strain on our relationship with our daughter and son-in-law. What do you think about this, Abby? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Baffled in Virginia Dear Baffled: Ron may not have as close a relationship with his parents

as you do with your daughter. Perhaps they would like to see less of the in-laws. By including them at every family and holiday gathering, you may be forcing more contact than Ron and ADVICE Jessica would like. So my advice is â&#x20AC;&#x201C; at least for a Dear while â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that you continue Abby to socialize with these â&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  people as friends but curtail some of those family activities. See â&#x20AC;&#x153;the kidsâ&#x20AC;? alone sometimes, and you may learn the reason they feel the way they do. Dear Abby: One of my friends asks to borrow my discount card (that I pay for) every time we go shopping together. She recently asked me to let her know the next time I plan to go to a particular membership store, so she can tag along and get my discount. Until now, I have always agreed,

but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beginning to bother me. Am I wrong to feel this way? Am I being selfish? If not, is there a tactful way to let her know how I feel? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Wise Shopper, Jacksonville, Fla. Dear Wise Shopper: Not knowing your friend, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to determine whether sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a mooch or someone who needs a break. Because you feel your generosity is being taken advantage of, a way to handle it would be to tell her that you sometimes decide to shop at the last minute and therefore canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always include her. Another would be to â&#x20AC;&#x153;forgetâ&#x20AC;? to mention youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going. Of course there is a third way, and that would be to tell her how you feel â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s risky because while true, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not tactful. Dear Abby: I have enjoyed the â&#x20AC;&#x153;pennies from heavenâ&#x20AC;? stories you print from time to time. For a while I have wanted to write and tell you my story. A few days after my mother passed

away, my husband and I went to dinner at a local restaurant. We usually pay for our dinners with a credit card, but this time we decided to use cash. Our change was a few dollars and a penny. For some reason, I decided to check the date on the penny. It was dated 1922, the year of my motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s birth. I am in my 50s and had never found such an old penny before. The 1922 penny is now among other treasures that my mother left me. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe in coincidences, Abby. I really do believe Mother had something to do with the penny we received. I consider it my â&#x20AC;&#x153;penny from heaven.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Seattle Reader Dear Reader: A penny as proof of a motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s love?

Reconsider Family must unite to tackle vets who loved one’s drinking problem overvaccinate Q D

ear Dr. Fox: I am concerned that my healthy 2-year-old papillon may be getting too many vaccinations and unnecessary dental cleanings. He is now due for his regular six-month Bordetella vaccination and six months later for a three-year DHPP vaccine. His veterinarian recommends that he now be injected with a new canine-influenza vaccine (H3N3) – two doses, two to four weeks apart, followed by annual vaccinations. He also recommends dental cleaning to remove tartar. Because my dog’s contact with other dogs is limited to trips to the veterinarian for wellness exams and vaccinations, I am thinking the Bordetella and influenza vaccines may be unnecessary and may have undesirable side effects. I would prefer to control tartar with home dental care and diet control, rather than dental cleaning at the animal hospital. Any advice would be appreciated. – H.H.H., Vienna, Va.

Dear H.H.H.: For your dog’s sake, go to another veterinarian. For a list of veterinarians in your area who practice holistic, integrative medicine, visit The federal authorities have given conditional approval for veterinarians to use the canine-influenza vaccine for dogs at risk, such as those going on the dog-show circuit. Your indoor dog would be at greater risk from the vaccine that many health experts consider potentially harmful. The Bordetella (kennel cough) vaccination is another scam, unnecessary for your dog’s situation. Ditto on the dental cleaning. Appropriate nutrition and in-home dental care is the safe and healthy procedure. Safe chew toys and products such as PetzLife Oral Care (also good for cats) are the best preventives for gingivitis and other dental problems. This is not to deny the fact that far too many dogs and cats are in urgent need of immediate dental surgery – periodontal disease is a pet pandemic. Dear Dr. Fox: I would

like your opinion about a growth on my 12-yearold pug. I am not ANIMAL sure of my vet’s DOCTOR evaluations. Dr. Michael It is Fox a soft ■■■ growth at the inside of his right front leg. Our vet calls it a “fatty tissue” that hangs down about two inches. My dog has had it for about a year, and I’m wondering if other dogs experience this as well. It appears that he is not in any sort of pain. I would appreciate your thoughts. – W.M.G., Florissant, Mo.

Dear W.M.G.: Your veterinarian is most likely correct in diagnosing your dog’s growth as a lipoma (benign). Be thankful that you are not being charged a bomb for unwarranted diagnostic tests such as biopsies and chest X-rays. You should see one of my dogs, 16-year-old Lizzie (a rescued street dog from Jamaica). She has several large fatty tumors and should probably be renamed Bubbles. Provided these benign tumors are not seriously interfering with a dog’s mobility and ability to lie down comfortably and are not getting rubbed or ulcerated, they are often best left alone, especially in older dogs. Even with careful surgery, they tend to grow back quickly if there are a few fatty tumor cells remaining; and they can pop up elsewhere on the body as independent (not metastasized) growths. My conservative approach is to let things be and feed the dog a wholesome, low-calorie (no cereals) diet of basically lean meats and vegetables. Why dogs get these fatty tumors is a mystery, though I believe that endocrine-disrupting, estrogen-mimicking chemical contaminants in our environment, drinking water, food, even food and beverage containers, and especially in prepared foods high in soy products, play a significant role.

uestion: My husband drinks excessively. Aside from getting help for my family, what should I do specifically for him? How on earth am I going to get him to go to Alcoholics Anonymous or some similar treatment program? He is deep in denial, and I’m not even sure he’s thinking right now. He couldn’t make a rational decision to save his life. How am I going to get him to cooperate?

Dr. Dobson: You’re right about the difficulties you face. Begging won’t accomplish anything, and your husband will be dead before he admits he has a problem. Indeed, thousands die each year while denying that they are alcoholics. That’s why Al-Anon teaches family members how to confront in love. They learn how to remove the support systems that prop up the disease and permit it to thrive. They are shown how and when to impose ultimatums that force the alcoholic to admit his or her need for help. And sometimes they recommend separation until the victim is so miserable that his or her denial will no longer hold up. In essence, Al-Anon teaches its own version of the “love must be tough” philosophy to family members who must implement it. I asked one recovered alcoholic I know if he was forced to attend Alcoholics Anonymous – the program that put

him on the road to recovery. He said: “Let me put it this way. No one goes to FOCUS A.A. just because ON THE they’ve FAMILY nothing better to Dr. James do that Dobson evening. ■■■ Everyone there has been forced to attend initially. You just don’t say, ‘On Monday night we watched a football game, and on Tuesday we went to the movies. So what will we do on Wednesday? How about going over to an A.A. meeting?’ It doesn’t work that way. Yes – I was forced – forced by my own misery. Pauline allowed me to be miserable for my own good. It was loving duress that moved me to attend.” Though it may sound easy to achieve, the loving confrontation that brought Bob to his senses was a delicate maneuver. I must reemphasize that families should not attempt to implement it on their own initiative. Without the training and assistance of professional support groups, the encounter could degenerate into a hateful, vindictive, name-calling battle that would serve only to solidify the drinker’s position. Al-Anon Family Groups and Alcoholics Anonymous are both listed in local phone books.

Teens can go there and share without their parents’ permission or knowledge, and it’s free. Question: Children seem to be growing up at a younger age today than in the past. Is this true, and if so, what accounts for their faster development? Dr. Dobson: Yes, it is true. Statistical records indicate that our children are growing taller today than in the past, probably resulting from better nutrition, medicine, exercise, rest and recreation. And this more ideal physical environment has apparently caused sexual maturity to occur at younger and younger ages. It is thought that puberty in a particular child is triggered when he or she reaches a certain level of growth; therefore, when

environmental and general health factors propel a youngster upward at a faster rate, sexual maturation occurs earlier. For example, in 1850 the average age of menarche (first menstruation) in Norwegian girls was 17.0 years of age; in 1950, it was 13.0. The average age of puberty in females had dropped four years in one century. In the United States, the average age of menarche dropped from 16.5 in 1840 to 12.9 in 1950. More recent figures indicate that it now occurs on average at 12.8 years of age! Thus, the trend toward younger dating and sexual awareness is a result, at least in part, of this “fast track” mechanism. DR.

Gothic art collection returns to RI mansion BY ERIC TUCKER ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER


EWPORT, R.I. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Marble House oozes decadence at every corner, from the 22-karat gold leaf decorations to the Corinthian columns at the front entrance to the lavish ceiling paintings of Greek gods. But for more than 80 years, the Gilded Age mansion has been without one of its most treasured features: a vast collection of more than 300 objects of Medieval and Renaissance art. The wealthy Vanderbilt family bought the works in Paris and displayed them for years on the redsilk walls of their mansionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s aptly named Gothic Room. But after the house closed in 1925, the items were sold to art collector and circus entrepreneur John Ringling and today belong to a Sarasota, Fla., museum bearing the Ringling name. Now, Newport visitors can see the items in their original setting. The John and Mable Ringling Museum has loaned the collection to Marble House through Oct. 31. The items â&#x20AC;&#x201C; paintings and sculptures, busts and furniture â&#x20AC;&#x201C; have been reassembled in the Gothic Room and displayed exactly as they were 100 years ago. The Preservation Society of Newport County operates the Marble House and other Newport mansions as public museums. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think that most people who know the Gothic Room always thought it was a very pretty room, and then you have these 300 objects added to it, and you go, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oh my God, it was bare before,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? said Trudy Coxe, the Preservation Society CEO. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But, we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know that until the objects were added.â&#x20AC;? Marble House is among the most popular of Newportâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mansions, palatial summer homes built for wealthy industrialists in the late 19th century that today rank among New Englandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most-visited attractions. Inspired by Greek ar-

chitecture and the Petit Trianon at Versailles, the home was completed in 1892 for railroad heir William K. Vanderbilt and his wife, Alva, a lover of art and culture who collected Renaissance art at a time when not many other Americans did. In 1889, the Vanderbilts and architect Richard Morris Hunt traveled to Paris to find artworks and other decorative pieces for the home. They acquired the Gothic collection of French architect Emile Gavet and sent it to Newport. The collection is varied and vast. There are 15thcentury Italian paintings depicting battle scenes; painted terra cotta busts; assorted copper and silver chalices and candelabra; intricately detailed French dressers showing stories from the life of Jesus and Greek mythology; and a case of wax portrait medallions bearing the likenesses of such dignitaries as King Henry II of France and popes Benedict XIV and Clement XI. A highlight of the collection is â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Building of the Palace,â&#x20AC;? a 16thcentury Italian painting showing men busily constructing a mammoth structure arising in the background. The painting is by Florentine artist Piero di Cosimo, who was believed to have contributed to the Sistine Collection. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You could spend a whole day in here and not grasp everything,â&#x20AC;? said Erin MarshallHouse, 33, of New Bedford, Mass., who was browsing the collection while vacationing in Newport one recent morning. But she also said the aesthetic seemed a little over-the-top. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This room was made to look like a museum,â&#x20AC;? she added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t live and be comfortable in a museum.â&#x20AC;? The Gothic Room, a reception room decorated with stained glass and a mantelpiece, was created to display the collection. Alva Vanderbilt opened the room to the public, but closed Marble House in 1925, moved to France and put the art up for

John Ringling, of Barnum & Bailey Circus fame, bought the works in 1927 for $125,000. Many of the items have been displayed at the Ringling Museum, but others were in storage. Preservation Society staff had long discussed displaying the collection, and Virginia Brilliant, the Ringling Museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s associate curator for European art, said she made a loan agreement a priority soon after joining the museum. The Ringling Museum relocated most of the collection to Newport, though some items were too fragile to travel and are replaced at Marble House by to-scale photographs. Archival photos helped Preservation Society staff know exactly where Vanderbilt hung each piece. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can, for all intents and purposes, walk in and out of that room and know that sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s there,â&#x20AC;? Coxe said. Brilliant said it was poignant to see the works in Marble House and that sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s open to leaving some items there long term. But, she said,

history canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be undone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you talk about the rightful place of an object, then everything should have to go back to the church it was made for, or the home it was

made for,â&#x20AC;? Brilliant said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Art changes hands. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just the nature of life and collecting.â&#x20AC;? Coxe said sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be sad when the collection is returned.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I had my druthers, they would forget that they loaned them to us and we would have them forever. But I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to happen.â&#x20AC;?

Reactions to tetanus vaccine seldom seen D

ear Dr. Donohue: Can one develop symptoms of tetanus after receiving the tetanus vaccine at age 70? After getting the shot, I had jaw swelling, swollen neck nodes and swelling in the lower legs. The shot is the only thing that we think could have triggered this reaction. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; M.G. Tetanus is a frightful, terrible illness thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s caused by a poison (toxin) made by the tetanus bacterium. Those germs are widely found in soil. A puncture wound, a skin-penetrating splinter, a fracture that protrudes through the skin, burns and sharing of unsterilized needles are some of the ways that the germ gains access to the body. The toxin releases nerves from the bodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s control, and they go wild. Muscles contract forcefully, arching the back and neck into a painful contortion. The mouth clamps shut (lockjaw). The muscle contractions are painful. During all this turmoil, the patient is fully awake and aware. Vaccination with tetanus toxoid has so reduced the number of cases of tetanus in the United States and Canada that most doctors have never witnessed a case. The tetanus vaccine should be repeated every 10 years. The vaccine is made from the tetanus poison that has been modified so it produces no symptoms, but does stimulate the body to make antibodies to tetanus poison. Those antibodies inactivate it. The reactions you describe are not the symptoms of tetanus. They could be due to an allergiclike reaction to the vaccine. Such a reaction causes joint pains, swollen nodes and swelling at the injection site. It almost never happens. I am not positive that your description duplicates such a reaction. Report this to VAERS,

the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System. It is an official orHEALTH ganization sponsored Dr. Paul by the Donohue Centers â&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  for Disease Control and Prevention.

I have large, red, painful bumps on my legs below the knees. Accidentally brushing my legs against furniture, the car door or even the cat hurts. Indocin and steroid cream were prescribed and helped for a while. I had to stop taking the anti-inflammatory drug because it upset my stomach. What causes this ailment? Is there a cure? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; K.M. Strep infections, fungal infections, salmonella infections, Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease, ulcerative colitis, birth-control pills, sulfa drugs and a few cancers are some of the things that lead to erythema (red) nodosum (bumps). In about 55 percent of cases, a cause cannot be found. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs â&#x20AC;&#x201C; your Indocin â&#x20AC;&#x201C; often provide relief. Taking Prilosec, Aciphex or other similar medicines that stop the outpouring of stomach acid can control stomach upset due to it and permit continued dosing with NSAIDs. Or a switch to a liquid preparation of potassium iodide can end the outbreak. The bumps usually disappear on their own accord within six or fewer months. Dear Dr. Donohue: It is very difficult for me

A recruiter from Foxconn talks to job applicants outside the factory in Shenzhen in southern China’s Guangdong province. Global manufacturers struggling with life-or-death pressures to control costs are finding that the legions of low-wage Chinese workers they rely on have limits. A strike at Honda Motor Co. and the official response to a spate of suicides at Foxconn Technology, a maker of electronics for industry giants such as Apple, Dell and Hewlett-Packard, suggests China’s leaders are at least tacitly allowing workers to talk back.

Limits of labor Chinese workers become less accepting of poor conditions BY ELAINE KURTENBACH AP BUSINESS WRITER

SHANGHAI — Global manufacturers struggling with life-ordeath pressures to control costs are finding that the legions of low-wage Chinese workers they rely on have limits. A strike at Honda Motor Co. and the official response to a spate of suicides at Foxconn Technology, a maker of electronics for industry giants such as Apple, Dell and Hewlett-Packard, suggests China’s leaders are at least tacitly allowing workers to talk back. Over the previous weekend, the top communist party leader

At Foxconn’s sprawling factory in Guangdong province, 10 workers have committed suicide. in Guangdong province visited Foxconn’s sprawling factory where 10 workers have committed suicide and urged the company to adopt a “better, more humane working environment” for its mostly young workers, state media reported. “The 80s and 90s generation workers need more care and respect and need to be motivated to work with enthusiasm,” said Guangdong party chief Wang Yang, who has backed efforts to

shift Guangdong up the industrial ladder away from reliance on exports of low tech, cheap products. That transition is taking hold across China. Manufacturers, under pressure to deliver low prices in home markets, are struggling to attract and keep young workers who, brought up in an era of relative affluence, are proving less willing than earlier generations to “eat bitterness” by putting up with miserable working environments and poor wages. The strike at Honda also reflects broader trends of growing dissatisfaction among China’s longsuffering workers with lagging wages and generally harsh working conditions. Employers in Shanghai complain of difficulties in finding and keeping young workers, both skilled and unskilled. Contractors were obliged to pay heavy bonuses to keep workers on the job during the lunar new year as they rushed to finish construction for the Shanghai World Expo, which runs for six months until Oct. 31. “Our economy can no longer rely on squeezing labor benefits, because workers are unwilling to accept it anymore. I have to say the squeeze is very cruel now,” said Chang Kai, a labor expert at Beijing’s Renmin University. Honda said late this past Monday that production at its auto factories in southern China would not resume until at least Thursday because of a strike at a crucial parts plant. Honda’s 21st century just-intime manufacturing chain — a standard cost-saving strategy — left it vulnerable to supply disruptions as a shortage of transmissions and engine parts forced production halts at its four assembly plants. “Most of the employees on strike at the plant have agreed to new wages, and some production started there from today,” said Honda spokeswoman Yasuko Matsuura in Tokyo.


Workers assemble toy cars on the production line at a toy factory in Dongguan, China. Global manufacturers struggling with life-or-death pressures to control costs are finding that the legions of low-wage Chinese workers they rely on have limits. She said “almost all” of the striking workers have agreed to increasing the total starting wage by about 24 percent to 1,910 yuan ($280) per month. Local reports said workers scuffled with police guarding the factory on Monday. China outlaws unauthorized labor organizing, limiting such activities to the government-affiliated All China Federation of Trade Unions and to company branches of the ruling Communist Party. But in recent years authorities increasingly appear to be tolerating sporadic, peaceful protests by aggrieved workers. In the Yangtze River Delta region, near Shanghai, sit-ins and other protests are common, though rarely reported in the state controlled media. In the year after China’s Labor Contract Law took effect in early 2008 the number of disputes doubled, according to a study by the International Labor Rights Forum. The law set standards for labor contracts, use of temporary workers, layoffs and other conditions and has raised workers


awareness of their legal rights. That study, released earlier this month, found that companies that had not been in compliance with earlier labor standards faced a 33 percent average increase in wages after the law’s implementation. But a large share of workers — more than half in some areas — still did not have valid labor contracts. “Wages have been rising in recent years, but compared with soaring prices they remain very low,” said Li Qiang, founder of New York-based China Labor Watch. “The government recognizes that problem, so even if strikes are still illegal some are tacitly condoned, though the strikes and protests have to stay within certain limits,” he said. Working conditions vary widely across China — from modern factories in full compliance with Western standards to slave labor brick kilns. Yet another of those was reported after 34 migrant workers were freed by a police raid in northern Hebei province, the state-run newspaper China Daily said Monday.

The labor rights group China Labor Watch is publicizing details of a reported death of a worker at a company in China who may have died after working nearly 35 hours nonstop. At 2 a.m. on May 27, Foxconn worker Yan Li died suddenly at his home. Before his death, he had been working the night shift for more than a month straight. His family and colleagues suspect he died from exhaustion due to overwork, reports China Labor Watch, which monitors working conditions in the country. An engineer, Yan Li was 27 years old when he died. According to his sister, Yan Li had no history of medical ailments. He worked well beyond the maximum overtime hours allowed by Chinese law, according to China Labor Watch. Just before he died, Yan Li suddenly experienced shortness of breath. The police who investigated concluded May 30 that Yan Li’s death wasn’t a criminal case. At one point, according to his family, Yan Li worked for almost 35 hours non-stop, from 7 a.m. on May 24 to 5:47 p.m. on May 25. “Even after leaving work on May 25, he still received calls from his superiors, making it impossible for him to rest,” China Labor Watch reports.



ASK A.P.: Journalist answers Gulf boundary question. 2F INDEX ARTS, ETC. TV LISTING NEWS

Satellite photo provided by NASA shows the oil slick from the leak from the Deepwater Horizon oil well in the Gulf of Mexico on April 20. A reader-submitted question about the international boundaries in the Gulf of Mexico is being answered as part of an Associated Press Q&A column called “Ask AP.”

Questions concern Gulf boundaries, credit agency reports THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Let’s say you’ve been making consistent payments on a loan, hoping that will improve your credit score. Is there anything you can do to make sure your lender reports your good behavior to the credit agencies? Curiosity about credit reporting requirements inspired one of the questions in this edition of “Ask AP,” a weekly Q&A column where AP journalists respond to readers’ questions about the news. If you have your own news-related question that you’d like to see answered by an AP reporter or editor, send it to, with “Ask AP” in the subject line. And please include your full name and hometown so they can be published with your question. You can also tweet your questions to AP, using the AskAP hashtag. Ask AP can also be found on AP Mobile, a multimedia news service available on Internetenabled cell phones. Go to http://www.apnews. com/ to learn more. Q. Where are the international boundaries in the Gulf of Mexico? All the news reports seem to suggest that the territory is all in the U.S. Jean Clanin Columbus, Ohio A. It’s a more complicated question than it sounds, starting with the fact that the laws and treaties use nautical miles (just over 6,076 feet) rather than statute miles (5,280 feet). U.S. territorial waters end 12 nautical miles (about 13.8 statute miles) from shore, and the Unit-

ed States has limited jurisdiction to enforce some laws for another 12 nautical miles. The rest is the “high seas.” However, international agreements give nations a 200-nautical-mile (230-statute-mile) “exclusive economic zone,” or EEZ, where they have jurisdiction over such matters as fishing rights and mining ‚– including oil and gas ‚– but not over where planes fly or ships sail. Treaties between the United States and Mexico set boundaries for EEZ oil and gas rights in the Gulf of Mexico within two areas known as “doughnut holes,” more than 200 miles from either country’s shore. They also describe, in intricate detail, how much oil and gas each nation should get from reservoirs that cross those dividing lines. Have a look at this report for more information about the “doughnut holes,” including a map showing where they’re located: http:// And you can find out more about boundaries in the sea here: Janet McConnaughey Associated Press Writer, New Orleans Q. Seven years ago I bought a home for cash, and I later went to a mortgage broker and took out a loan for $75,000, hoping to pay it off quickly and improve my credit rating. I recently went to refinance and found that

the payments I am making are not on my credit report – the mortgage company says they don’t report the payments. Is there not a law to make them report my good credit? Can I force them to report it? Jeff Gordon Chattanooga, Tenn. A. Most lenders do report loan and payment data to one or all of the three credit reporting agencies – TransUnion, Equifax and Experian. But there is no law that requires a lender to share information with these private companies, and no way to demand a report be submitted. The federal Fair Credit Reporting Act sets the rules for what sort of information must be reported and how often it should be updated if a lender takes part in the voluntary reporting system, said Norm Magnusen of the Consumer Data Industry Association, a trade group. Some small companies may decide not to report to the agencies if they have a low volume of loans, he suggested, because there is an expense involved in doing so. Borrowers who want their payment history added to their credit reports should ask the lender if it reports to one or more agencies before accepting the loan. The information on a credit report is used to determine a credit score, a rating intended to gauge a borrower’s trustworthiness. Everyone is entitled to one free credit report from each agency each year. Details are available at http://www. Eileen AJ Connelly AP Personal Finance Writer, New York

Slur accusation made against politician BY NICK NEEDHAM MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE REGIONAL NEWS

HOPE MILLS – A town commissioner is being investigated after two police officers say he used a racial slur in reference to the town’s police chief, who is black. Town Manager Randy Beeman confirmed Tuesday that Tonzie Collins, a town commissioner, was under investigation. He said Town Attorney William R. Davis will decide after an investigation whether the matter will be referred for further investigation. Hope Mills

Police Chief Robert Hassell and Mayor Eddie Dees did not comment on the situation Tuesday because it is a pending legal matter. Davis could not be reached for comment. The investigation stems from an April 1 incident, in which Collins was talking to two of the town’s police officers behind Town Hall about former U.S. Sen. Jesse Helms, according to sworn statements from two officers. When Collins spotted Hassell walking across the parking lot he remarked, “and I don’t like the (N-word) either,” according to the statements.


LENOIR – It was more than 20 years ago when Tamala Wilson first slipped on the protective gear and battled flames erupting from a structure. Now, the Caldwell County native is the first female to be named battalion chief at the Durham

Fire Department. “Being the first woman is special because it’s important for other women to see that it is possible to get past the glass ladder and climb it,” said the West Caldwell High School graduate. “For so many years, women have been told they can’t handle the stress and pressures that comes with being a firefighter, but we truly are

just as effective at the job.” Wilson was promoted to battalion chief in February after 11 years as captain. She is responsible for 30 firefighters and eight trucks across five stations in the city, including Duke University. Wilson said she considers it an honor to be the go-to person on a scene, but there are times she misses being the first

one to run inside a burning building or to pull a patient to safety. “I’ve always thought that firefighting was interesting, but I thought it was a dead end street when I was growing up,” Wilson said. “My brother worked at the Gamewell Fire Department, and I wanted to follow in his footsteps, but I didn’t think it was possible.”

Museum plans draw cautious optimism Michael Jackson’s hometown moves ahead with project


ARY, Ind. (AP) – Michael Jackson’s father and Gary officials announced plans last week to move ahead with a long-delayed performing arts center to help revitalize the late singer’s hometown, drawing cautious optimism from residents who say they’ve heard this song many times before.

US library honors Paul McCartney for pop music WASHINGTON (AP) – When it comes to popular music, it doesn’t get much bigger than the tunes Paul McCartney has written and sung over the past five decades with the Beatles and on his own. McCartney, who has been knighted by the queen of England, was honored with Washington’s highest award for pop music last week by the Library of Congress. The Gershwin Prize for Popular Song is named for the U.S. songwriting brothers George and Ira Gershwin, whose collections are housed at the library. McCartney has “made an impact far beyond music through his humanitarianism and activAP ism around the world, which are Singer Paul McCartney (center) leaves a news conference about his emblematic of the spirit of the Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song in Washington Gershwin Prize,” Librarian of last week. Congress James Billington said.

The 67-year-old McCartney said he was “slightly nervous” about performing about three feet in front of President Barack Obama in the East Room at the White House on Wednesday, when he was presented the award. “For an English kid growing up in Liverpool, the White House – that’s pretty special,” he said. “He’s a great guy,” McCartney said of Obama, “so lay off him.” The former Beatle says it’s very special to win the Gershwin Prize because he grew up listening to music by the Gershwin brothers. Faced with the Washington press corps, McCartney was quizzed on his inspiration for songwriting, his opinion on whether performers should earn royalties for when their work is played on the radio (he

thinks they should) and even got a few autograph requests. This was McCartney’s first major lifetime achievement award from the U.S. government. He was slated to win a Kennedy Center Honor, the nation’s top prize for performing artists, in 2002, but backed out because of a scheduling conflict. In 1990, McCartney won the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. The Jonas Brothers, Faith Hill, Stevie Wonder and Jerry Seinfeld were part of an all-star lineup that honored McCartney. The concert will be televised July 28 nationwide on PBS. Performers also included White Stripes singer and guitarist Jack White, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, singers Emmylou Harris, Elvis Costello and others.

Experts say Texas textbooks are unlikely to spread SAN ANTONIO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Pop quiz: Does the school curriculum adopted in Texas really wind up in textbooks nationwide? If you answered yes, you might get a failing grade. As the second-largest purchaser of textbooks behind California, the Lone Star State has historically wielded enormous clout in deciding what material appears in classrooms across the country. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why the state school boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recent decision to adopt new social studies standards was closely watched far beyond Texas. Critics feared the new, more conservative curriculum in Texas would spread elsewhere. But publishing experts say those concerns are overblown. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easier nowadays to create one edition for one situation and a different edition for an-

DIETING FOR DOLLARS More employees across US are trying it


TLANTA (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; How much money would it take to get you to lose some serious weight? $100? $500? Many employers are betting they can find your price. At least a third of U.S. companies offer financial incentives, or are planning to introduce them, to get their employees to lose weight or get healthier in other ways. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been an explosion of interest in this,â&#x20AC;? said Dr. Kevin Volpp, director of the University of Pennsylvaniaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Center for Health Incentives. Take OhioHealth, a hospital chain whose workforce is mostly overweight. The company last year embarked on a program that paid employees to wear pedometers and get paid for walking. The more they walk, the more they win â&#x20AC;&#x201C; up to $500 a

year. Anecdotal success stories are everywhere. Half of the 9,000 employees at the chainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s five main hospitals signed up, more than $377,000 in rewards have already been paid out, and many workers tell of weight loss and a sudden need for slimmer clothes. But will this kind of effort really put a permanent dent in Americanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seemingly intractable obesity problem? Not likely. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably a waste of time,â&#x20AC;? said Kelly Brownell, director of Yale Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity. IBM rewards employees for doing 12-week Webbased health programs, offering $150 per program. Kevin Acocella, 35, an IBM marketing manager, was 5-feet-9 and a chunky 185 when he decided two

years ago to enroll in the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fitness program. But he failed twice. The money got his attention. But the problem, he said, was the culture he was in. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In New York City it was, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;What restaurant can we go to, or what bar can we go to?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? Early this year, he moved to the IBM office in San Jose, Calif. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Here itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;What activity can you do, and what can you go see,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? he said. Acocella has lost 9 pounds in the three months heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been there. He recently signed up for the IBM reward program again, but this time itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s incidental to his new active lifestyle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The real issue was getting myself in a program I could actually do and could keep up with. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think those things swing on a dollar,â&#x20AC;? he said.

other situation,â&#x20AC;? said Bob Resnick, founder of Education Market Research, based in New York. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe the Texas curriculum will spread anyplace else.â&#x20AC;? After months of discussion, the Texas Board of Education last week approved placing greater emphasis on the Judeo-

Christian influences of the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Founding Fathers and teaching children that the words â&#x20AC;&#x153;separation of church and stateâ&#x20AC;? do not appear in the Constitution. In Washington, Education Secretary Arne Duncan called the process a case of politicians deciding curriculum.

Study: 10 minutes of exercise produces hour-long effects WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Ten minutes of brisk exercise triggers metabolic changes that last at least an hour. The unfair news for panting newbies: The more fit you are, the more benefits you just might be getting. We all know that exercise and a good diet are important for health, protecting against heart disease and diabetes, among other conditions. But what exactly causes the health improvement from working up a sweat or from eating, say, more olive oil than saturated fat? And are some people biologically predisposed to get more benefit than others? Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re among questions that metabolic profiling, a new field called metabolomics, aims to answer in hopes of one day optimizing those benefits â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or finding patterns that may signal risk for disease and new ways to treat it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re only beginning to catalog the metabolic variability between

people,â&#x20AC;? says Dr. Robert Gerszten of Massachusetts General Hospital, whose team just took a step toward that goal. The researchers measured biochemical changes in the blood of a variety of people: the healthy middle-aged, some who became short of breath with exertion, and marathon runners. First, in 70 healthy people put on a treadmill, the team found more than 20 metabolites that change during exercise, naturally produced compounds involved in burning calories and fat and improving blood-sugar control. Some werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t known until now to be involved with exercise. Some revved up during exercise, like those involved in processing fat. Others involved with cellular stress decreased with exercise. Those are pretty wonky findings, a first step in a complex field. But they back todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health advice that even brief bouts of activity are good.
