The recession has sapped the job market across the country, state and High Point area for more than a year. Now there are some signs that the pace of layoffs is easing and the rate of hiring by employers is improving. But analysts say that the job market, at best, will grow in fits and starts. That means people who have been out of work – in some cases going on two years – will have to keep scrambling to find a path to a paycheck. This three-part series examines some of the factors – from trends with the economy to shipping American job overseas – that will determine the fate of the local job market through this year and into the next one.


Job market shows signs of recovery BY PAUL B. JOHNSON ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

TRIAD – To grasp the status of the job market, think about someone recovering after a long, debilitating illness. You don’t just pop out of bed one day and feel completely fine. Your body gets better in stages, and sometimes it feels like forever. So it is with the economy creating jobs – the malaise has been so bad for so long, getting back to something resembling normal will take time. That’s little comfort for tens of thousands of people in the High Point area desperately seeking a paycheck. But analysts say that’s the somber reality as the job market inches toward recovery. “The economy has been weak for a while, just like if someone had pneumonia. So it’s going to take a while for it to build its strength back up. There’s a process that has to be gone through,” said Mike McCully, associate professor of economics at High Point University. The economy received three serious blows simultaneously, said John Quinterno, principal with

In North Carolina, from October 2008 to August of last year, the state averaged losing 22,500 jobs each month. “That’s a big hole to fill,” Quinterno said. The head of the High Point Chamber of Commerce said he sees some signs of hiring locally. “I think our members are looking at hiring

TODAY: Job market recovers, slowly but surely; productivity gains could actually slow growth MONDAY: Unemployment benefits mount TUESDAY: Offshoring and job recovery again,” said chamber President Tom Dayvault. “We still have some who have financial challenges and are holding back, no question about that. They are staying stable at this point, waiting to see how the economy rebounds. But I’m also hearing that people are beginning to interview and start that process of moving forward.” The larger members of the High Point chamber

tend to be further along in creating jobs at this point, Dayvault said. The worst-case scenario for the job market during the rest of this year is that job creation remains weak as employers worry about the direction of the U.S. economy and the impact here of troubles in Europe, McCully said. The best-case scenario is that the country’s economy keeps growing at a solid pace as employers remain confident and accelerate hiring, he said. The primary factor that will affect the direction of job growth through 2010 is business confidence, McCully said. “If businesses are confident about the future, they are going to start hiring again. In part what will give them confidence is if consumer spending is fairly strong over the summer

The numbers show how far the national and local economy has just to get back to normality. “The U.S. economy has lost 8.4 million jobs since the recession began, while it should have added 2.7 million jobs simply to keep up with population growth. This means the labor market is now roughly 11.1 million jobs below what would be needed to restore the pre-recession unemployment rate,” the Economic Policy Institute in Washington reports.

Productivity gains may put a crimp in job creation

Perdue: NC coast ready for tourists, but also for oil MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

RALEIGH – North Carolina’s beaches are clean and open for business, Gov. Bev Perdue said this week. Perdue made the declaration after leaving a briefing on the state’s emergency preparation efforts should the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico get in Gulf Stream currents and flow around the Florida peninsula up to the Carolinas. “North Carolina’s beaches are open; they’re beautiful,” Perdue said. “The tourism season is red hot and we want everybody to understand that.” The offshore well being dug for BP blew out on April 20, killing 11 workers on an oil rig. Scientists estimate that between 40 million gallons and 100 million gallons of oil have spewed into the Gulf of Mexico following the blast. The oil has reached the coastline of Gulf Coast states. While some have suggested that oil from the spill could get into the Gulf Stream loop and head up the coast of the Southeastern United States, many experts say that is unlikely. “We have no reason to believe that it would be anything at all like we’re

seeing on television now in the Gulf Coast states,” Perdue said. She said that if for some reason it does, the state is prepared. “We’re told by the experts that there is almost a nonexistent chance,” Perdue said. “But you all know me. I’d rather be prepared than wake up one morning and say I thought it wasn’t coming.” Perdue said that a lot of coastal residents were concerned about what the long-term impact would be on fisheries because of the dispersants being used in the Gulf. Perdue said that just hoping the oil won’t come up the coastline is not a course of action. “North Carolina is very prepared to deal with whatever comes our way,” Perdue said. “We have a very state-of-the-art, 21st century oil recovery plan in place.” “We have no reason to believe that any oil is coming to our coast,” she said. “But if it comes, again they tell me that with the distance there is no way for it to come to our shores in the form of a sheen or what we’re seeing with this massive oil spill off the coast of Louisiana, Alabama and Florida.”


TRIAD – Maybe it’s a reflection of the poisonous scope of the recession that something typically benefiting the economy – greater productivity by the work force – may be crimping job creation. Increases in worker productivity usually turn into an economic plus, as profits from more efficient production bolster employers and lead to overall growth. But amid the deep downturn now, increased productivity can hamper job creation as employers take advantage of their existing work force to do more, said John Quinterno, principal with South by North Strategies out of Chapel Hill. Higher productivity allows employers to respond to increased demand with little to no additional hiring, said Mike McCully, associate professor of economics at High Point University. “What I would be concerned about is that employers have reduced internal capacity right now. For example, for manufacturers, if there’s a pickup in demand, they can add more hours to their workers,” Quinterno said. Productivity grew at a slower rate in the first three months of the year, the U.S. Labor Department reported earlier this month. Analysts say it may be an indication that businesses are stretching the limits on how much work they can squeeze out of fewer workers. The Labor Department reports

WILSON – One family has a lot to celebrate and be thankful for this Father’s Day. Two of their fathers survived a boat explosion Thursday. A relaxing fishing trip on the James River in Virginia took an unexpected, dangerous turn for Mickey Wilson, and his father, Alvin P. Rowe Jr., Thursday afternoon. Wilson is the father of two daughters. Wilson is a major at the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office and the head of the Animal Enforcement Unit. “Mickey is doing as well as can be expected,” said Teresa Woodard, Wilson’s sister. “He suffered second-degree burns from his knee to his ankle on his

left leg and a smaller burn about the size of a softball on his right leg.” She said Wilson’s goatee was also singed, but he was not burned anywhere else. “He is a hero,” Woodard said. “He saved my father.” She said when the boat exploded, Rowe was sitting near the explosion. “Mickey ran up there, got his life jacket on him and threw him overboard,” Woodard said. “To me, he is a hero. The angels were with them.” Woodard said once Wilson got Rowe in the water, he grabbed his life jacket and jumped overboard. Rowe was not injured during the incident. Woodard said her brother is expected to be OK and none of his injuries are life threatening.

employment has increased by 119 percent since the onset of the recession in late 2007, reports the N.C. Justice Center’s Budget & Tax Center in Raleigh. Since the beginning of the recession, the state has lost 267,500 jobs, or 6.4 percent of its work force base, the N.C. Employment Security Commission reports. “In order for North Carolina to recover from the jobs lost during this recession and meet the

growth in the work force, more than 400,000 jobs will need to be created,” said Justice Center policy analyst Alexandra Forter Sirota. “In April, 7,500 jobs were created – a good start, but hardly a full remedy for working people.” For the second straight month, unemployment rates decreased in North Carolina and the High Point area during April. The statewide unemployment rate fell from 11.1

40,000 jobs needed to catch up



Policy Institute in Washington. “Productivity growth has held up well throughout the recession beginning in 2008 and began accelerating in the last half of 2009.” Productivity can have an indirect benefit on the job market. If higher productivity leads to greater profits for companies, it can lead to higher or stable wages and profit-sharing payments to employees. “That encourages consumer spending, which encourages job creation. So indirectly in the long term it can be positive for job creation,” McCully said.

productivity grew at an annual rate of 2.8 percent in the first quarter of 2010, the slowest pace in a year. A group that tracks the economy said the level of productivity may tie into the pace of job creation. “Measured productivity growth often accelerates in the early phase of business cycle recoveries, and this reflects the ability of firms to accommodate rising demand for their output without resorting to hiring. How long firms make this accommodation will be a key determinant of how long the current recovery remains jobless,” according to the Economic

Attorney General Holder speaks in NC WILMINGTON (AP) – The U.S. attorney general spoke to a North Carolina trial lawyers group Saturday about the importance of making sure poor people have access to legal representation. U.S. Attorney Eric Holder told members of the N.C. Advocates for Justice that the state’s overburden public defender system is just one of many across the country with similar funding and staffing problems. “In some parts of the country, the primary institutions for the delivery of defense to the poor – I’m talking about basic public defender systems – simply do not exist,� Holder said in prepared remarks. Holder told the attorneys about the Justice Department’s Access to Justice Initiative. The program was launched in March with the goal of giving all Americans better access to legal representation.

Holder said the keys to improving access are to include all players in discusHolder sions about how to improve access and make the public more aware of the problems some people face when they can’t get a lawyer. “Shining a light on these problems is important – and is often an impetus for reform,� Holder said. He said lawyers took the lead on getting changes made in North Carolina after the state auditor said three years ago that the public defender system was falling short of its mission to provide adequate legal defense. “You’ve also been calling on state lawmakers to make indigent defense services, even in these hard economic times, a funding priority,� he said.

Black smoke is seen coming from the intelligence services building that came under attack in the southern port city of Aden, about 200 miles south of the capital, San’a, in Yemen Saturday.

Yemeni militants kill 11 in brazen jailbreak SAN’A, Yemen (AP) – Four suspected al-Qaida gunmen blasted their way into the intelligence headquarters of Yemen’s second largest city Saturday and freed several detainees in the group’s most spectacular operation since a U.S.-backed government crackdown began late last year. The attack on the heav-

ily protected security complex killed 11 and further bolstered U.S. concerns that Yemen’s weak central government may not be up to tackling an increasingly effective foe seemingly able to strike anywhere inside or outside the country. “We were hit where we least expected it,� Yemeni Information Minister Has-

san al-Lozy told the Al-Arabiya news channel. “This is a serious escalation from these terrorist elements.� U.S. officials say insurgents, including Americans, are training in militant camps in Yemen’s vast lawless spaces and allying with powerful tribes opposed to the government of President Ali Abdullah Saleh.

BAGHDAD (AP) – A protest over electricity shortages in oil-rich southern Iraq turned deadly when police opened fire to disperse the crowd on Saturday, killing one protester in a melee that warned of growing anger over the government’s failure to provide basic services. More than 3,000 protesters marched through Basra, which suffers from searing summer temperatures that can reach 120 degrees and high humidity. They carried banners and chanted angry slogans demanding a solution to the power cuts that persist despite billions of dollars in reconstruction money since the 2003 U.S.led invasion. It was a scene that has become more frequent across the nation as patience wears thin among Iraqis struggling to cope with less than six hours of electricity a day. But the demonstration turned violent when protesters started throwing stones and advanced on the Basra provincial council building, setting fire to a guard’s cabin.

UN says security in Afghanistan has not improved KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) – The United Nations reported Saturday that insurgent violence has risen sharply in Afghanistan over the last three months, with roadside bombings, complex suicide attacks and assassinations soaring over last year’s levels. The three-month report by U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to the U.N. Security Council appeared at odds with Pentagon assertions of slow but steady

progress in Afghanistan – an assessment that was challenged by U.S. lawmakers during recent hearings on Capitol Hill. In the report, Ban said the overall security situation in Afghanistan has not improved since his last report in March and instead the number of violent incidents had “increased significantly compared to previous years and contrary to seasonal trends.”

threatened to protest the summits next weekend in Toronto and Huntsville, Ontario. The suspects, Roger Clement, 58, Claude Haridge, 50, and Matthew Morgan-Brown, 32, all from Ottawa, were arrested Friday. The three appeared briefly in an Ottawa court Saturday and were ordered held in custody until their next court appearance later this month.

It holds more than 80 foreign inmates, mostly Colombians and Mexicans there for drug-related crimes. And then there is Joran van der Sloot. The 22-year-old Dutch murder suspect in the May 30 killing of 21year-old Lima student Stephany Flores is passing the time watching television and exercising in a secluded section of the Miguel Castro Castro prison. The Rev. Hector Allende, a former bank robber turned evangelical who ministers to the prison population, says other inmates are intrigued by the celebrity defendant in their midst. But almost none can catch a

glimpse of Van der Sloot, the lone suspect in the disappearance five years ago in Aruba of U.S. teen Natalee Holloway. Van der Sloot Van der Sloot doesn’t mix with the regular population at the high-security lockup, a giant octagonal compound in the desert that holds 1,500 inmates. The Dutchman has a cell of his own adjoining that of a reputed Colombian hit man in a nearly empty block. The prison-mates share a TV set – the Colombian’s property – and barbells fashioned from a broomstick and water-filled plastic bottles. On Monday, a judge is scheduled to begin questioning Van der Sloot in private about the slaying of Flores, the daughter of a circus impresario and former race car driver.

He could serve between 15 and 35 years in prison if convicted of first-degree murder in the beating and strangling of Flores, which occurred at his Lima hotel room. Peruvian prisons director Ruben Rodriguez told The Associated Press there is no way other inmates can get near Van der Sloot. His 2-by-3.5 meter (6-by-11 foot) cell faces the warden’s office. “He told me he feared for his life,” Rodriguez said. “If he asks to go elsewhere with the rest, he’ll go with the rest.” Rodriguez says Van der Sloot has not received phone calls from relatives, though a Dutch Embassy official came. As for food, Van der Sloot gets the same basic meals as every other inmate, Rodriguez said. The day of his arrival, “seco de pollo” – a traditional Peruvian chicken and cilantro dish – was served.

DRUG ABUSE: Admissions up among people 50 and older. 6F

Managing Editor: Sherrie Dockery (336) 888-3539


Obama says Republicans making life harder for the jobless WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama on Saturday pinned blame on Republicans for making life harder for the unemployed and for those who could lose their jobs without new federal intervention. He did so even as he sought to distance himself from the “dreary and familiar politics� of Washington. Capping a week in which the administration scored a victory – a $20 billion fund to be paid

by BP for the victims of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill – Obama reserved his Obama radio and Internet address to focus on the work that didn’t get done. His main concern was the rejection of a bill in the Senate that would have provided more money for the long-term unemployed, aid for

strapped state governments and the renewal of popular tax breaks for businesses and individuals. “If this obstruction continues, unemployed Americans will see their benefits stop,� Obama said. “Teachers and firefighters will lose their jobs. Families will pay more for their first home. All we ask for is a simple up or down vote. That’s what the American people deserve.�


Gulf residents outraged by CEO’s yacht outing VENICE, La. (AP) – Just when it seemed Gulf residents couldn’t get any more outraged about the massive oil spill fouling their coastline, word came Saturday that BP’s CEO was taking time off to attend a glitzy yacht race in England. Tony Hayward’s latest public relations gaffe didn’t sit well with people in the U.S. who have seen their livelihoods ruined by the massive two-month oil spill. “Man, that ain’t right. None of us can even go out fishing, and he’s at the yacht races,� said Bobby Pitre, 33, who runs a tattoo shop in Larose, La. “I wish we could get a day off from the oil, too.� As social networking sites like Twitter and Face-

book lit up with anger, BP spokesp e o p l e rushed to defend Hayward, who Hayward has drawn withering criticism as the public face of his company’s halting efforts to stop the worst oil spill in U.S. history. Robert Wine, a BP spokesman at the company’s Houston headquarters, said it’s the first break Hayward has had since the Deepwater Horizon rig exploded April 20. “He’s spending a few hours with his family at a weekend,� Wine said Saturday. “I’m sure everyone would understand that.� Not Mike Strohmeyer, who owns the Lighthouse

Lodge in Venice, on Louisiana’s southern tip, who said Hayward was “just numb.� “I don’t think he has any feelings,� he said. “If I was in his position, I think I’d be in a more responsible place. I think he should be with someone out trying to plug the leak.� President Barack Obama’s chief of staff said Hayward has committed yet another in a “long line of PR gaffes� by attending the race. Rahm Emanuel mocked Hayward’s infamous statement that he wishes the crisis were over so could have his life back. Referring to the yachting, Emanuel told ABC’s “This Week,� “He’s got his life back, as he would say.�

Officials: Harvard student won’t be deported BOSTON – An undocumented Harvard University student is no longer facing deportation to Mexico after being detained nearly two weeks ago by immigration authorities at a Texas airport, officials said. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said late Friday that they would not pursue the deportation of Eric Balderas. The 19-year-old was detained in June after he tried to use a university ID card to board a plane from San Antonio to Boston. Mario Rodas, a friend of Balderas, said Balderas was granted deferred action, which can be used to halt deportation based on the merits of a case.

School to reverse ban on boy’s toy soldier hat COVENTRY, R.I. – The superintendent of a Rhode Island school district that banned a second-grader’s homemade hat because it displayed toy soldiers with tiny guns said Saturday he will work to change the policy to allow such apparel. Coventry schools superintendent Ken Di Pietro said in an e-mail to The Associated Press that the no-weapons policy shouldn’t limit student expression, especially when students are depicting “tools of a profession or service,� such as the military or police. David Morales, an 8-year-old student at Tiogue School, made the hat after choosing a patriotic theme for a school project last week.

Police: Bikes stolen from Jenna Bush Hager BALTIMORE – Baltimore police say two bicycles were stolen from the home of Jenna Bush Hager, the daughter of former President George W. Bush. Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi says no one was at the house owned by Bush Hager and her husband when the burglary occurred Friday afternoon. He says there is no indication that whoever burglarized the home knew who lived there. Fingerprint evidence was taken, but no suspects have been identified. The bikes worth about $3,500 combined were taken from a garage, and no entry was made into other parts of the home.

Woman’s request of president leads to arrest NEW YORK – A woman who wrote President Barack Obama, asking for help resolving her husband’s immigration problem got a response she didn’t expect: Federal agents turned up at her New York City home and took her husband to jail. Officials tell The New York Times that Caroline Jamieson’s letter to the president was mistakenly forwarded to an immigration fugitive unit. After the newspaper inquired about the case, the man, Herve Fonkou Takoulo, was released.


Melissa Huckaby is seated at her sentencing in the San Joaquin County Courthouse last week in Stockton, Calif. The Sunday school teacher who pleaded guilty to kidnapping and murdering a young female neighbor in Northern California made a tearful apology to the victim’s family as she was sentenced to prison for the rest of her life.

Records: 8-year-old girl’s killer ‘calm, calculating’ STOCKTON, Calif. (AP) – Sunday school teacher Melissa Huckaby evidently planned the gruesome killing of an 8-year-old girl, taking care to place the child’s lifeless body into a suitcase, according to newly released case documents. This and other macabre pieces of information were revealed in the more than 1,800 pages of grand jury transcripts and other documents released Friday, shedding some new light on Huckaby, who was sentenced to life in prison after pleading guilty to kidnapping and murdering her daughter’s playmate last year. Still, the 29-year-old Huckaby

never revealed her motive and investigators have been at a loss to explain why she did it – but the documents do help fill out a portrait of a depressed woman Cantu with a troubled past and a penchant for cutting herself. According to the documents, as the evidence against her mounted, Huckaby stuck to her story as police questioned her in April 2009: She had nothing to do with the abduction, rape and murder of a young neighbor, an 8-year-old girl. “She’s the type of person that

thought she could always explain her way out of situations,� Tracy Police Det. Nate Cogburn told the grand jury that would charge Huckaby in Sandra Cantu’s death. “And that was clearly what she thought she was going to do in this case.� According to a probation report, she described her childhood as “kind of rough� and said she was raped by a police officer when she was 19. She said she was diagnosed as bipolar and suffering from post traumatic stress syndrome. Dr. Bennet Omalu, the forensic pathologist who conducted the autopsy, testified Sandra’s killer showed a “calm, calculating mind at work.�

Storms nail Midwest, kill 1, damage skyscraper DEXTER, Mich. – Severe thunderstorms sweeping through the Midwest have killed a motorist in Michigan, shattered windows in an iconic Chicago skyscraper and knocked out power to hundreds of thousands of people. Sheriff’s officials say a driver was killed near Dexter, Mich., about 40 miles west of Detroit, when winds toppled a tree onto a vehicle. In Chicago, powerful winds and heavy rains broke windows in the 110-story Willis Tower. Witnesses say the debris looked like icicles falling from the skyscraper, formerly known as Sears Tower.

James Smith tries to match the championship pace Saturday in the Wingsfest eating contest.



COLFAX – Fans of chicken wings had some fun for a good cause Saturday at the Piedmont Triad Farmers Market. Robert Kight of Greensboro came with his family to Wingfest to try the wing varieties. Wing fans could find their favorites at sponsor vendor booths. “This is our first time to come here,” Robert Kight said. “We want to see who has the best wings, but I did not train for the eating contest.” Vendors brought their wings in several different recipes for sale to benefit the Arc of High Point. The event is the biggest fundraiser of the year for the nonprofit organization that provides various afterschool and home care services for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families. About a dozen men saved their appetites to see if they could defeat reigning Lord of the Wings Steve Taylor in an eating contest. The

GUILFORD COUNTY – Lewis Ferebee, a regional superintendent for Guilford County Schools, will become chief of staff for Durham Public Schools effective July 1. Durham district leaders announced the appointment Tuesday. Two other local school administrators also will move to Durham. Ferebee, 36, will take over the chief administrative officer position left vacant by Interim Superintendent Hank

Hurd, the Durham Herald-Sun reported. As DPS chief of staff, Ferebee will lead and support 53 principals. He will work directly with incoming Superintendent Eric Becoats, former Guilford County, Schools chief administrative officer, in developing and overseeing academic programs and in assisting in the development of the district’s budget. Ferebee has been Enrichment Region superintendent since 2009. He was responsible for a region of schools, includ-

ing three in High Point, with 6,800 students and 864 licensed staff members. He served as the district’s instructional improvement officer for two years prior, where he was chief instructional leader and manager for a division of 13 middle schools. Ferebee was principal at Hairston Middle School from 2005 to 2007 and Fairview Elementary School principal for four years. He was Guilford County Schools Principal of the Year in 2006. “Seasoned instructional leadership, strong

administrative skills and school-based experience make Dr. Ferebee the perfect candidate to serve Durham Public Schools as chief of staff,” Hurd said. “His work with our new superintendent will be part of an extraordinary team to take Durham Public Schools to new heights in this new decade.” Becoats, 43, succeeds Carl Harris who resigned in December 2009 after three years as superintendent to become deputy assistant secretary with the U.S. Department of Education.

Friends, family honor â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;mayor of Main Streetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; W

ho is the man â&#x20AC;&#x153;about town?â&#x20AC;? Do you have any guesses? Is he called the mayor of Main Street? Is he called High Pointâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s greatest ambassador? Does he have the nickname of â&#x20AC;&#x153;See-Moreâ&#x20AC;?? The answers are yes, yes and yes. The man â&#x20AC;&#x153;about townâ&#x20AC;? is Charles Simmons, and recently his friends and family toasted him as Charles Simmons Day was proclaimed in High Point at a festive luncheon. Simmons arrived as usual at the String & Splinter for lunch and did not suspect a thing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; until he saw his son who lives in western North ABOUT Carolina in TOWN the buffet Mary line. Still, it Bogest wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t until he entered the dining room that was SRO with his friends and family did Simmons, a former fabric salesman, realize that this day was different. Little did he know at the time that this was his day, dedicated to our man â&#x20AC;&#x153;about townâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; our man about High Point. As you will learn, Charles Simmons is definitely all about High Point! The speechless Simmons was emotional as he recognized so many friends, including several fraternity brothers from Davidson University in the dining room! Even the mayor of High Point, Becky Smothers, was there to pay tribute to the mayor of Main Street! Friends Bill Blanton, Joe Carroll and Bob Davis secretly planned the fete aided and abetted by Barbara Garry and her staff at The String & Splinter. Appropriately, the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hear ye, hear yeâ&#x20AC;? proclamation of Charles Simmons Day by Blanton was preceded by a drum roll by HPU professor: percussionist Danny Frye. There was thunderous applause as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is your life, Charles Simmonsâ&#x20AC;? show began after the invocation by Bishop Tom Stockton. Blanton, whose wife Wanna also attended, said of his good friend, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Simmons is considered by his peers to be the greatest goodwill ambassador on the planet (yes, the planet) for High Point, and the international home furnishings industry. He has spent more than 55 years of his â&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013; 


Friends Joe Carroll (left) and Bill Blanton (right) paid tribute to Charles â&#x20AC;&#x153;See-Moreâ&#x20AC;? Simmons on Charles Simmons Day at the String & Splinter. life chasing his dream. At his own expense, he has walked, driven and flown more miles, visited more showrooms in more countries, attended more press parties and spoken more good words selling High Point than any person living or dead! I am one of the fortunate ones who has been a friend of his for over 50 years, and I can truthfully say that I have never known anyone who displays as many good, solid qualities as this man. When you think of Charles Simmons, these words quickly come to mind; generous, encouraging, engaging, endearing, creative, supportive, loyal and visionary. How blessed we are that Charles Simmons is a native son of high Point and that he is a part of our lives! Cheers!â&#x20AC;? The champagne was poured. What an incredible testament to friendship by Blanton. To add my personal note that, while I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know Simmons well, to me he is recognizable by his distinctive look which combines the Yul Brynner bald look with his signature round deeply dark glasses. Although I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go to very many furniture market parties (I did, however go to the

Now, I know that those conversations are undoubtedly touting his hometown. Next on the agenda after Davis introduced Simmonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s children Beau, Ann, Lizbet and Jim, was former Furniture Today publisher and 2009 inductee into the American Furniture Hall of Fame, Joe Carroll. Carroll wasted no time to â&#x20AC;&#x153;roast and toastâ&#x20AC;? his friend who has been a widower since his beloved wife died several years ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There were two things he loved most of all: his family and High Point. His children question the order of these two priorities. One of his daughters told me that he even suggested that we name his grandson, first name â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;High and middle name â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Point.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? Simmons has had the nickname of â&#x20AC;&#x153;See-Moreâ&#x20AC;? ever since he was in elementary school when a classmate teased him about wearing glasses and the young Simmons retorted, I bet I can see better than you.

bet and he has been â&#x20AC;&#x153;SeeMoreâ&#x20AC;? to his friends ever since. One of his children told Carroll, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The only time youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see Dad get frustrated is when he thinks people arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t listening to him talk about High Point.â&#x20AC;? Carroll then looked directly at his friend who was still overwhelmed and said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;So Charles, we want you to know today that someone, in fact many, many people have been listening to you,â&#x20AC;? and

then added, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Charles is a stranger to no one and a friend to everyone. He welcomes foreigners to his city. Today, a very successful rug merchant (Abu Khan) and a university president (HPU, Nido Qubein) will tell you how Charles invited them to his home when they first arrived just because he wanted them to love High Point as much as he did. He has to be High Pointâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best diplomat and booster. He has been all over the world and to

many cities in the U.S. but in his mind no place has the potential of High Point. Keep on pounding the pavement, Charles.

Equipment dealer charged in fraud


Keeping tradition alive Crew members of boat The Virginia Creeper come into shore for the James River Batteaux Festival on Saturday in Lynchburg, Va. Batteaux plied the waters of the upper James and other rivers in Virginia from the late 1700s to the early 1900s. The wooden batteaux carried crops, finished goods and occasionally, passengers.

NORFOLK, Va. (AP) – The former owner of a Smithfield farm equipment company has been charged with obtaining more than $1.7 million in loans in the names of friends and customers. Sixty-year-old Linda Rowland appeared in federal court in Norfolk on Friday and was released until her next court appearance July 2. If convicted of wire fraud, she could face up to 20 years in prison. According to an FBI affidavit, Rowland admitted taking out bogus loans on nonexistent equipment because the business she owned with her husband was failing. Their sons now run the Rowland Equipment Co. Linda Rowland’s attorney, Andrew Protogyrou, said in court that his client has been suffering from severe mental health issues.

Doctors ponder ties with Medicare MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

Medicare’s decision yesterday to begin imposing a 21 percent cut on reimbursement rates isn’t likely to have an immediate effect on local relationships between physician and patient, officials say. But it does raise a level of anxiety that the cut could be the final straw for some doctors to either turn down new patients relying on

Medicare or stop participating altogether. “I’m not going to get out of taking Medicare patients over this,” said Dr. William Kelly, who has specialized in geriatrics at Kernersville Primary Care for 26 years. “But it’s going to hurt as long as they allow the cut to stand, particularly with all the extra overhead costs they’re expecting us to handle – like online and electronic records.” Understanding the importance of Medicare’s move takes some con-

necting of the dots. The rate cut was supposed to have gone into effect Jan. 1, but Congress postponed the start until May 31. Even after that date was passed, Medicare held off processing claims for June through yesterday in hopes that Congress would approve another delay. The U.S. Senate did just that yesterday, putting off the start until Nov. 30. But because the U.S. House was done for the week, the delay couldn’t be enacted until next week at the

earliest. As a result, doctors, nurse practitioners, physical therapists and other providers who bill under Medicare’s physician-fee schedule will feel the pinch of the reimbursement cut, at least this month. For example, a 4.4 percent rate cut was implemented for about four months in 2006 before Congress acted. Although Kelly said he is confident, he is getting weary of the reimbursement cut shadowing his practice. He said he doesn’t want to

come across as a complainer, given that so many local residents have absorbed pay cuts or are unemployed. “For every $100 payment I get from Medicaid, or any payer, $60 of it goes to overhead,” Kelly said. “The rest is my salary and benefits. So when my Medicaid reimbursement comes back at $78.70, my overhead costs still remain $60, so I’m taking a more than 50 percent cut. That’s not something you can just shrug off lightly.“

Arkansas preacher tends to flood victims LODI, Ark. (AP) – As a prelude to Father’s Day, Graig Cowart planned to preach to his Baptist congregation about the importance of family. When survivors of a deadly flash flood showed up at his church wet and worried, he opted for works over words. “The last thing they need is a sermon,” Cowart said. The Pilgrim Rest Landmark Missionary Baptist Church is 20 miles from the Albert Pike Recreation Area in Arkansas’ Ouachita Mountains, where a wall of water slicing through the darkness on June 11 killed 20 campers. It took more than a weekend of searching to

recover what is believed to be the last of the victims, while Cowart turned his church into the gathering spot for families who needed solace and strength. “That’s what we’re about, anyway, is those people. We just kind of put our lives on hold so they could get their lives back on track,” Cowart said. When word spread of the deadly flooding, Cowart’s church hosted mourning as the bad news piled on. Families wept, whether in the air-conditioned activity center or the 95-degree heat outside. Between counseling sessions, Cowart updated family members

on the search and rescue efforts from inside the forest. At one point, about 100 family members crowded the church grounds, along with hundreds more volunteers, aid workers and journalists. The 43-year-old pastor became the de facto spokesman for the families, providing their public face in one of the worst disasters in Arkansas history. He tended to reporters, too, offering them water as they waited in the heat. Although he’s been a preacher for 18 years, Cowart said he struggled with what to tell the family members as they waited.

Recycling changes will hurt city’s program The city of High Point will set back the process of recycling for many years with its current plans. They are trying to force the large recycling totes on people who live in townhomes and condo developments when they do not have room to store this size container, especially those who live in the inside units of the developments. If you have a two-car garage and have two cars, there is no room, and the same goes for one-car garages and one car. The city officials say they are saving money by using these new, expensive one-man trucks, but they have not considered what most people will do.





They will simply stop recycling and dump all of it in the garbage. Then the city will have to replace the garbage landfill much sooner because the volume of garbage will greatly increase. The city then will have all the plastic and other recyclable material that will continue for a long, long time in the landfill. I ask the city leaders to please come up with a more economical solution for us. GENE CLODFELTER High Point

Obama should focus on stopping oil



House of Representatives Rep. Laura Wiley (R) (61st District), 4018 Quartergate Drive, High Point, NC 27265, 3368410045; Raleigh, 919-733-5877


wo months before Barack Obama was inaugurated as president of the United States, his chief of staff offered some advice that appeared to be quite wise when the $787 billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act stimulus package was passed by Congress. “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste,” Rahm Emanuel told a Wall Street Journal conference of top corporate chief executives on Nov. 21, 2008. Now, nearly nine weeks after the BP’s Deepwater Horizon well began spilling (by Thursday) between 66 million and 120 million gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico, is the time to react to this assault on the United States and throw everything the government has at its disposal to stop the leak. A rig drilling a relief well meant to stanch a gushing flow of oil into the Gulf of Mexico is ahead of schedule but isn’t expected reach its target for the next three to four weeks. In the meantime, a team of scientists has estimated about 35,000 to 60,000 barrels are flowing from the broken well every day. Latest figures compiled by The Associated Press show that 783 birds, 353 turtles and 41 mammals have died – numbers that pale in comparison to what happened after the Exxon Valdez disaster in Alaska in 1989, when 250,000 birds and 2,800 otters are believed to have died. Researchers told AP there are several reasons for the relatively small death toll: The vast nature of the spill means scientists are able to locate only a small fraction of the dead animals. Many will never be found after sinking to the bottom of the sea or getting scavenged by other marine life. And large numbers of birds are meeting their deaths deep in the Louisiana marshes where they seek refuge from the onslaught of oil. Obama, now one- and one-half years into his presidency, should follow the “no excuses” advice he gave a graduating class a couple of weeks ago and abstain from blaming everything that goes wrong during his tenure on George W. Bush. No more grandstanding, no more constantly bashing the very people who are trying to close the hole in the ocean floor, no more promises that may not be able to be kept, no more promises that probably aren’t meant to be kept once the 2010 election is history, no more chicanery such as trying to sweep “under the carpet the controversy over the drilling experts it falsely used to justify its moratorium, the incident bears another look,” as The Wall Street Journal put it. “Not least because it underlines the purely political nature of a drilling ban that now threatens the Gulf Coast economy and drilling safety.” Certainly BP should be held accountable, but making sure that happens and sufficient penalties are imposed are roles for Congress and the justice departments of the United States and states impacted by the spill. Obama should lead the charge to see that everything possible is done to close the hole and abandon, until that is accomplished, his efforts to use the spill to further his political goals that include pushing cap and trade and greenonly legislation through Congress, while killing drilling anywhere and everywhere. As the gambler sings, “There’ll be time enough for countin’, when the dealin’s done.”



The High Point Enterprise is committed to this community ... and always will serve it by being an intensely local newspaper of excellent quality every day.

It may be my greatest achievement – being like Pap


ver the years in the newspaper business, I have read many Father’s Day tributes – by readers, by columnists and by members of the newsroom staffs of the nine newspapers for which I have worked. Just last week – in Thursday’s edition of The High Point Enterprise, reporter Paul Johnson wrote about just one of the lessons his father taught him and how easily his father could discipline him with The Look; then, in Saturday’s edition, longtime (more than three decades) friend the Rev. Bill Ellis declared near the end of his column that his father “lived the Christian life more perfectly than any man I have ever known.” Pap, as my sister Nancy (five years older than me) and I called my father, was a carpenter during his 20s, then, just before the stock market crash in 1929, took those skills to a job at the Freedom Oil Works in Freedom, Pa., and began working his way up the ladder. The Freedom Oil Co. and the Valvoline Oil Co. merged in 1944. He became Freedom Oil’s plant superintendent about the time the company merged with Ashland Oil in 1950 and ran the Freedom operation until his retirement in 1969. But, to Nancy and me, he was a teacher, not a school teacher – as Nancy was for nearly four decades – but someone who could teach life’s lessons, often without his “students” realizing it at the time. Pap stood 5-11 and, much of his adult life, weighed a little over 200 pounds. He had big hands with thick fingers. I recall, when he bought me my first baseball glove when I was 11, his hand was every bit as big as the glove. Fortunately, he could discipline us with The Look or The Voice and rarely had to give us a smack on the bottom with one of those hands. He taught by example and by painstakingly explaining how to do things, clearly laying out expectations, then inspecting to make certain he was getting what he expected. Often “on call” even when he wasn’t at the oil works, he still found time to spend with each of us and to use his considerable skills to make things for us that we treasured – such as the village with three model trains that he set up around the bottom of tree every Christmas from the time I was 4 until I was 9 or 10. When I started school – a “country” school with eight grades in three rooms – and worried a bit about older and bigger kids pushing me around during recess, Pap bought some boxing gloves and gave me quick, effective lessons in self-defense. Not to worry after that. He encouraged me to participate in sports and always was willing to teach me how to build, maintain and repair almost anything and everything. He instilled in me a work ethic that thrives to this day. I always enjoyed working with him, learning quickly that one measures thrice and

cuts once. Yes, thrice! When I was a junior in high school, Pap, my grandfather and I built the house that Mom lived in 55 years until she died at age 98 in 2006. On the rare occasion when something he was putting OPINION together didn’t fit just right – because when he was workTom ing with it, it almost always fit Blount right – I’d ask, “What are we ■■■ going to do now?” He’d reply, “Get a bigger hammer.” And, sometimes, he did! And, sometimes, I still do that today. Mom hoped I would grow up to be a preacher and Pap hoped I would become a lawyer but, when I won a best-essay contest as a seventh-grader and decided I wanted to be a journalist, both supported that effort every way possible. Pap taught me to be an independent thinker, to work within the rules, to stand up for and do what is right, and follow God’s word. Pap, as did Bill Ellis’ dad, lived an exemplary Christian life. There was no doubt, during my “growing up” years who was the father and who was the son. Pap had a great sense of humor, although for some reason he often kept it under wraps and, as a deep thinker, often appeared to have a bit of a scowl on his face. When I was a teenager hanging out in the evenings at a dairy store near my house, he often would walk to the store to get bread and milk, etc. As he would approach, my buddies, quickly calming down from whatever antics they had been up to, would whisper to one another, “Here comes the Great Stone Face,” because he often would give them The Look. Pap didn’t suffer fools easily, a trait I believe I inherited. His quick wit could disarm a tense situation with lightning speed. I moved away after college for newspaper jobs in Wilmington (N.C.); Mansfield, Ohio; Bedford, Pa.; Boise, Idaho, and Wichita, Kan., before returning to the Beaver Falls, Pa., area to become editor of The News-Tribune, a newspaper for which I had been a sports writer all four years I was in college. My relationship with Pap was different that time around. During those dozen years, he and I became best friends, more like brothers than father and son. He died in 1987. I also vividly recall, during a visit to Beaver Falls after Betty Lou and I moved to Illinois, where I was editor of the Herald & Review for a dozen years before coming to High Point in 1990, the women whose family sat in the pew in front of Mom and Pap at Calvary Presbyterian Church said to me, “You’re the spitting image of your Dad. And, you act just like him.” That’s as nice a thing as anyone ever has said to me.

Violent? We must change state retirement system Racist? N Says who? O

ver the past year or so, there have been quite a few letters to the editor and at least one guest column complaining about Tea Party members being racist and prone to violence. Every informed person knows that Tea Partiers are not racist or prone to violence, but the accusations continue. This is actually the implementation of a common liberal tactic: Attempt to cover up your own indiscretions by accusing your opponents of doing exactly what you do. The left has a long history of racism and violence in America and around the world. Conservatives weren’t rioting in the streets of Greece recently, it was left-wing labor unions fighting to keep their bloated entitlements. It wasn’t conservatives who assaulted the police and created mayhem in protest of Arizona’s anti-illegal immigration law. It wasn’t conservatives who tried to break the lawful naval blockade of Gaza by overpowering Israeli Defense Forces. OPINION Even Greensboro made the naMike tional news recentHughes ly when an irate ■■■ liberal disrupted a peaceful protest outside of Rep. Mel Watt’s office. Forsyth County GOP Chairman Nathan Tabor was with a group of conservatives protesting out of control government spending when a Watt supporter took it upon himself to teach the conservatives a lesson about how former President George W. Bush is the real root of all evils. Video clips of the incident show a black man disrupting the protest, getting aggressive with Tabor (who is white), punching Tabor in the face, and then nonchalantly sitting in his car. Liberals claim that protesters such as these are racist. So, an over-the-hill black man sporting gray hair, a pot-belly and a 1960 sit-in movement T-shirt walked into a fairly large group of supposedly violent, white racists, yelled at them and punched one in the face, and then casually walked away to his car? What’s wrong with this picture? Well, besides the liberal lie about conservatives being racist, where were the Greensboro police? I was at the Tax Day Tea Party in Greensboro and there were plenty of police around. Maybe the police should have been a little closer to this protest. When liberals protest, the police need to keep an eye on the liberal protesters. When conservatives protest, the police need to keep an eye on the liberal disrupters. You can learn more about this incident at http://gsoteaparty. The website reports that similar incidents have occurred in Tampa and St. Louis. Fortune magazine recently reported on a protest where 14 bus loads of rowdy union members invaded the home of a Bank of America lawyer and effectively terrorized his family. Fortune claims that the police were afraid of making arrests because they didn’t want to incite the mob. At the head of all this is President Obama, who has routinely made comments such as “I want you to argue with them, and get in their face …” and “if they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.” In March I wrote, “People like their entitlements, and they’ll fight to keep them.” Liberals are losing the argument and they’re getting desperate. Conservatives need to stand up for our country. The police need to keep the peace. MIKE HUGHES is a Navy veteran who lives in Jamestown. His column appears here every other Sunday.

orth Carolina is making promises to state employees we cannot keep, and the sooner our leaders address these problems the better it will be for both public employees and the citizens of our state. For many years North Carolina provided enough state contributions so that, coupled with reasonable investment returns, our retirement system was considered fully funded, meaning we could pay the retirement benefits promised public employees. Two things changed. Budget problems prompted our Legislature to reduce funding to the retirement system at the same time the recession dramatically reduced annual returns from investments. Treasurer Janet Cowell says to return to fully funded status will require the state to contribute more than $400 million and increase annual contributions going forward. No one believes that is going to happen soon. The gap between what we promised and what we can pay future

retirees will become a widening chasm, resulting in a major unfunded liability. Corporate America has MY SPIN already been forced to face Tom the dilemma, Campbell making a de■■■ liberate switch from employers promising employees a defined benefit upon retirement to employers promising the employee a defined annual contribution to individual pension accounts, with the employee having investment options that will help determine ultimate retirement benefits. For more than 20 years, North Carolina leaders have known our state needed to consider this option, but they shied away from making the move because the pension fund was fully funded, a change would be complicated to implement and state employees would not embrace the idea.

Our leaders have refused to acknowledge or fix the problem of promises made state employees regarding health insurance. Until recently, every state employee was promised that after five years of work, their health insurance premiums would be fully paid by the state upon reaching age 65. Actuaries say our liability from those promises currently exceeds $30 billion and North Carolina has no idea how to fund this looming crisis. Our state can ill afford another unfunded liability in our pension system. We can fix the retirement system problem through several steps. First, we promise current employees that North Carolina will not renege on its promises to them in the current defined benefit plan. We can make a few changes to prevent current abuses of the system, such as perhaps increasing the number of years used to calculate the average income of an employee, penalizing governments that provide dramatic employee pay increases in the last two

or three years prior to retirement or perhaps even establishing a maximum percentage of annual salary the state will pay in retirement. At the same time, we must change to a defined contribution system for all employees hired after a certain date. North Carolina will likely experience cost increases resulting from running two retirement systems concurrently but the short term pain will be minimal compared to the longer term crisis for not making the change in a timely manner. Former Treasurer Harlan Boyles frequently boasted of our retirement system saying, “Promises made, promises kept.” Change in our pension plans is inevitable if we are to continue to boast of kept promises.

Fatherhood We must make being an involved father normal in America again


e all should be absolutely alarmed by the current state of fatherhood in this country. It is terribly troubling that our society accepts fatherhood as a luxury, not a necessity. An involved, loving, active father has become the exception in this country, and it’s time we make it the norm again. On the surface, there are some things that only a father can provide his children. Although a mother is vital to a child’s development, there are some activities that a OPINION dad just makes perfect. ShootArmstrong ing baskets or Williams going ice skating becomes more than a bonding experience between father and child, it becomes a moment when boys learn how to carry themselves as men, how to strive for a goal, work hard, and strengthen their male personality. It becomes a moment when daughters learn how a man should properly treat a woman, interact with males, try their best, overcome adversity, and strive for their potential. There is little in life that can simulate these fathers – child moments that turn ordinary days into treasured lifelong memories. Like most loving fathers, my father expected a lot out of me and my siblings. He constantly encouraged me and pushed me to reach my potential, but occasionally – and only when necessary – he would use his lash to get my attention. His


stern face or grave words would let me know that my behavior or attitude was out of line. My healthy fear for him in these rare moments kept me focused on living a healthy, productive life. I remember his strong grip as he taught me to shake hands like a gentleman, I remember his huge arms wrapping me tight after tough family football losses, and I remember my father’s extraordinary courage to do the right thing regardless of the situation. I would never be where I am today without my mother, but

my father taught me how to be a man. An active father does more than help his son grow into a man or daughter grow into a woman. He provides the spiritual leadership that every family needs. My father taught me how to handle difficult situations by keeping perspective. He taught me that faith comes first, family comes second, then friends; after that, its education and vocation. My father taught me to rely on God and trust that He would protect me as I

walked through the “shadow of the valley of death” or faced unexpected hardships in my life. And more than just teaching it, my father lived it. I saw him read the Bible daily, pray habitually, and attend and participate at church every Sunday. My father provided the spiritual leadership that the Bible calls for, and I believe this kind of leadership should ideally be handled by a man. Regardless of the religion, this cannot be done properly if the father is absent. Being a father is about much more than just bringing home a paycheck. Fatherhood is the basic means by which a family is brought into contact with the public sphere. This is not to say that mothers can’t or don’t do this in many cases. But especially in the case of young males, many of whom have been lost to the influences of street culture over the past two generations or so, having a strong male role model in the home is key to how these males will interact in the society at large. It is the key to how they will conduct relationships, interact with the law, and perform on their jobs. Fathers ultimately bear the responsibility for training ground for new leaders. As such, fatherhood is a virtue that needs to be reawakened in America, not just for the poor and marginalized, but for all Americans regardless of their socioeconomic background.

It’s a step toward getting COLTS on map The Sanford Herald June 16


f you weren’t aware that Lee County operated its own transit system, then you’re not alone. Public transportation in our area isn’t a necessity as it might be in a metropolitan area or a community with a higher poverty level, but there is a growing segment of our population who could us – and would use – public buses or vans if they were made more available to them. The County of Lee Transit System held two workshops Wednesday to share with

the public its five-year plan and to receive feedback from those who currently use the program or want to use it. The workshops were sparsely attended, though that fact is somewhat of a Catch-22. Those who need public transit aren’t likely to drive to the civic center for an afternoon program (though, in COLTS’ defense, it did offer to pick up anybody who wanted to attend). But we applaud COLTS and the Raleigh-based consulting firm Kimley-Horn and Associates for going public with its plan and offering to share its future with the people who’ll

likely benefit from it. According to the latest Census figures, nearly 1,000 families currently living in apartments or condos are without any vehicle. More than 2,500 renters (many of them families) have just one car. And another 500-plus homeowners have no car. These are people who would qualify as “needing” another form of transportation. It is unknown whether or not seniors living in nursing homes or assisted-living apartments figure into these statistics, but currently these folks are the county’s biggest users of public transit.

According to Jonathan Whitehurst of K-H and Associates, the disabled also use COLTS, and more and more Hispanics rely on it to get to work. COLTS’ biggest hurdle will be letting the community know it exists. Beyond that, it will be measuring its relevancy. It’s doubtful Sanford will need a full-on bus system any time soon, but an improved and more recognizable transit system is a step in the right direction. We hope COLTS considers more workshops in the future. With recognition, the other pieces will fall into place.


Barrett continues longshot bid for SC governor COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) – U.S. Rep. Gresham Barrett’s bid for governor in Tuesday’s GOP runoff is a longshot fight to keep his reputation intact – and a gamble that everything possible will go right for him and everything will go wrong for state Rep. Nikki Haley. Haley, a three-term Lexington legislator, nearly won the June 8 primary outright with 49 percent of the vote. Barrett took 22 percent in the four-way race that brought out a near-record 422,251 voters. “It’s pretty tough,” Barrett said Friday. He’s seen Haley capture national media attention while he’s been left shaking hands at restaurants and rallies. Barrett’s strategy of closing the gap and pulling off an extraordinary upset centered on TV ads with a drill

Gresham Barrett look at a monitor as they are asked questions during a televised debate in Columbia, S.C., Thursday. sergeant barking praise for his record while Barrett’s press office chipped away at Haley’s record in news releases. His campaign close-

out ad is a blur of images from his life emphasizing character and family. “And I think when we’re successful Tuesday night,

people will go, ‘You know what? It wasn’t anything that he did” – but something the “Lord did,” Barrett said. “And I’ll take divine

intervention any day, my friend.” Haley emerged from obscurity with the help of a key endorsement from former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and a backlash stirred by unsubstantiated allegations by two men that she’d had physical relationships with them. Neither has offered proof. The allegations turned the focus away from any other issue in a campaign that dawdled along for a year in the shadow of Gov. Mark Sanford’s affair and investigations that brought the largest ethics fines in state history. “South Carolina voters have not had the opportunity to focus on our campaign,” Barrett campaign manager Luke Byars said. “She’s got it and if you’re the campaign running against

her, you’ve to find some way to get some oxygen.” Barrett told his closest supporters after winning a runoff berth he was staying in for more than a longshot win. “I said that I had been falsely accused. I think my record’s distorted. And I said we’re going to give people a choice,” Barrett said. “I feel like I’ve got a very honorable record. I feel like I’ve got a conservative record.” And he noted how fast political fortunes could change and did in the primary. “I do remember saying two weeks is a lifetime in politics and it is,” Barrett said. But Barrett now needs Haley’s luck to change. Emory University political scientist Merle Black said recovering from that kind of deficit is almost unheard of in elections. “I can’t recall one,” Black said.

PAYING THE PRICE: How the oil spill affects cost of shrimp. 2C

Fees? What fees? Government soon to require more 401(k) disclosure DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Who would choose to buy something without knowing exactly how much it costs? Few people would. Yet that’s what millions of investors do when they sign up for a 401(k) plan. That’s about to change. After years of analyzing, deliberating and gathering comments, the Department of Labor is about to require providers of 401(k) plans such as Fidelity, Charles Schwab and The Vanguard Group to reveal details about their fees — a requirement that currently isn’t mandated. Various bills have been introduced in Congress to force fee disclosure, but none has yet made it through the House and

Senate. Labor Department regulations, in the works for a couple of years, are nearly ready for release. It’s widely understood that companies selling 401(k) plans to employers have deals with the mutual funds within their plans. Such deals include revenue sharing arrangements and payments for unspecified fees that may include charges for marketing, distribution or other services. The range of fees are seldom spelled out, and are sometimes taken out of the investment returns of the fund, which means plan participants are unknowingly paying them. If the final Labor Department rules reflect the most recent version, they will

require companies that provide employers with 401(k) plans to: • Disclose in writing all services provided and their related fees stated in a specific amount — a percentage of plan assets or a per-person charge. • Detail how the company will collect fees, whether it’s by billing the plan, deducting fees directly from plan accounts, or skimming a percentage off of the plan’s investment return. Workers who save for retirement will finally know exactly what they’re paying for. “It will be relatively easy to understand,” said Pat DiCarlo, an employee benefits expert and partner with the Alston & Bird law firm in Atlanta. “That’s information that has not always been easy to find.” Companies offering work-

ers 401(k) plans can shop around with clearer knowledge of the services they’ll receive and their cost. “With increased fee transparency comes better services and better prices, a better bang for the buck,” said Marcia Wagner, managing director of The Wagner Law Group in Boston, which specializes in employee benefits. Criticism over lack of fee disclosure grew as the recession set in and the stock market plunged through 2008 and early last year. Losses in 401(k) plans turned the focus on fees and whether investment professionals were enriching themselves at the expense of workers trying to save for their retirement. The impact of even slightly higher fees can be dramatic for a worker saving for decades. The Government Ac-

countability Office studied the fee issue and concluded that just a 1 percentage point difference in fees could cut a worker’s assets by 17 percent over a 20-year period. The GAO report recommended regulatory changes that would require detailed fee disclosure. That was in 2006. The fee issue also came more into focus in recent years after workers began suing their employers. The lawsuits alleged the employers failed to ensure that workers were paying reasonable 401(k) fees and the companies should have known some fees were hidden. Such cases have been brought against major corporations including Boeing Co., Deere & Co. and Wal-Mart Stores Inc. Verdicts have come out on both sides, which means the issue could end up before the U.S. Supreme Court at some point.

Truck business stays on the move BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – For more than 30 years, Braxton Burney worked for a company that built moving and storage truck bodies used by companies that moved people to new towns, new jobs and new lives. When his employer closed its doors last summer, Burney decid-

‘Our customers have just really wanted us to make it. There’s a demand for this type of truck body that other companies haven’t been able to monopolize yet.’


The Burneys are shown at the family business, including Travis Burney (from left), Vickie Burney and Braxton Burney.

“We decided to go into our own business rather than have him seek another type of employment,” Vickie Burney said. “It was an emotional time because it was hard to make the decision as to what to do.” The High Point native began forming smaller pieces of the company many years ago, but he didn’t know it at the time. In 2003, he began Braxton Burney to do some welding work in his basement ed it was time to move in as a side job. He gained a new direction with his some customers and experience in operating own life. a business through the “We maybe had a viventure. sion of owning our own It was the relationbusiness, but it wasn’t ships he formed while something we ever working at his previous planned,” Burney said job, however, that transabout he and his wife, Vickie. “It just happened lated into success at his business. as such.” “When that company Now the proud owners closed, there was a big of B.R.

some work to me, and then they just kept sending more work.” The company focuses on building bodies for moving trucks for mobile and storage moving companies across the country. Their most recent truck was built for a company in Arkansas. It left the shop on Friday to be delivered. Burney also had a good relationship with the vendors at his former employer, so he knew

where to get supplies for his company as well. All of those relationships developed into a snowball effect of business, he said. “We build other things,” he said. “We’ve built toolbox assemblies that go into truck bodies. We’ve even built some remote control machinery for a mobile storage company. Everything just really fell into place.” The company now has


four full-time and three part-time employees and may be adding more workers soon. That doesn’t mean there weren’t some bumps in the road. Creating financial stability for the company was a challenge and is always a work in progress, Burney said. But the fact that his business made it through the first year – usually the hardest year for any business – is attributed to the relationships with customers and a little divine intervention, he said. “Our customers have just really wanted us to make it,” he said. “There’s a demand for this type of truck body that other companies haven’t been able to monopolize yet.” “We’ve also really seen the hand of God in all of this,” Vickie Burney said. “He’s really been there to help us prosper, and we give him the glory.” | 888-3617

NEW YORK (AP) – AOL Inc. is paring its ambitions in online social networking, selling a website called Bebo that it bought a little more than two years ago for $850 million when AOL was still part of Time Warner Inc. Bebo, which launched in 2005, has failed to match the huge popularity of sites like Facebook and Twitter. It has been strong in foreign markets, though, including Britain. AOL tried to take advantage of that to drive traffic to its other ad-supported Web properties, but the site has been losing ground. Worldwide, it had about 12.6 million users in April, less than half of the 26.9 million it had in the same month a year ago, according to comScore Inc. In the U.S., Bebo was down to 4.9 million from 10.2 million a year earlier. In the same period, Facebook has grown to 121.8 million users in the U.S. from 67.5 million. AOL said in April it planned to shut Bebo or sell it. The company said Wednesday that the buyer is the private investment firm Criterion Capital Partners LLC. The California firm did not say how much it is paying, but analysts have speculated that the site would fetch just a small fraction of what AOL paid for it.

Experts say higher shrimp costs likely to stick around NEW YORK (AP) – The BP oil spill has impacted several industries, including shrimp fishermen along the Gulf coast. That may leave you wondering how the nation’s shrimp prices will be affected. Here’s what you need to know. Shrimp is the nation’s No. 1 seafood product and Louisiana is tops in U.S. shrimp production. But most the shrimp consumed

in the U.S. comes from overseas, with only about 7 percent coming from the Gulf, according to the National Fisheries Institute. Louisiana’s biggest seafood item – shrimp – is down to just 30 percent of normal production, according to the Louisiana Seafood Promotion & Marketing Board. That’s driving up prices of shrimp from the region.

A 21-25 count of brown shrimp from Gulf of Mexico cost $6.50 this week, a 44 percent jump from $4.50 the week of the oil spill, according to Urner Barry, which provides market quotes to the wholesale food industry. Shrimp prices were rising before the oil spill, in part because of production problems in Asia. The U.S. government

also barred wild-caught shrimp from Mexico because crews were allegedly failing to take measures to prevent sea turtles from getting caught in nets. Coincidentally, the ban went into effect the same day as the rig explosion that triggered the spill. Wal-Mart and Kroger, two of the nation’s largest grocers, say they buy shrimp from so many

different sources that they have not had to raise prices. Some other retailers say they locked in prices with suppliers earlier. People in the seafood business say there are too many variables to predict supply and pricing trends for the rest of the year. But many expect already inflated prices to stick around for a while.

Tomorrow’s workplace – brighter, livelier? BY MILDRED L. CULP WORKWISE FEATURES

Most people are so wrapped up in struggles of the recession that they don’t have the luxury of thinking about the shape of tomorrow’s workplace. Some recent research about Millennials (Gen Y), the youngest group in the workplace, suggests that the workplace will change. Will it? Stereotyping and youth discrimination aside, what do they stand for? What are they bringing to us? As their spirit takes hold in the workplace, how better will it fare? A research report, “What Your Company Will Look Like When Millennials Call the Shots,” offers findings from a 20-minute survey of people born between 1977 and 1996 in the United States and United Kingdom. The survey, conducted by Seattle-based research consultancy Intrepid Consultants Inc., and New York marketing firm Mr Youth L.L.C., drew 199 responses from the U.S. and 613 from the U.K. Income breakdown for the U.S. follows: • $0 to $25,000 – 45 percent; • $25,000 to $40,000 – 25 percent; • $40,000 to $56,000 – 13 percent; • $56,000 to $75,000 – 6 percent; and • above $75,000 – 11 percent. Believe what you read and you might think that this group has a professional version of ADHD. “The average 26-year-old


has craved stimulation so much (that he’s changed jobs) seven times from age 18, in search of something more,” according to the research. Imagine what this level of turnover would do to your workplace before the recession ends, if it isn’t doing it already. Continuity has value. Good jobs help produce it. To retain Gen Y, you must offer “an environment that continually keeps them stimulated and engaged,” the report says. Take this need seriously by re-

alizing that they need not just creative projects, but a workplace filled with colleagues who are lively and active in their work – not those who hit 40, 45 or 50 and decide to slow down. Could there be new definitions of “old?” Plodding, uninterested, passive and intellectually lazy signify “old.” Pair “young” older workers with this cohort and watch what happens. This pairing is essential to the survival of the workplace. Innovation is critical to Mil-

lennials, too, the study reports. This group brings the desire for the newness we need to pull out of the recession. Yes, it’s true that much of what companies have been doing isn’t working or no longer will work. Help us help them on that path. Give them training, opportunities to brainstorm and greater appreciation for an individual’s contribution or point of view. Let them try something that might fail; then help to make it or successive efforts succeed.

According to the study, this generation is “driven by ideas that move forward.” Is this information new? Assistant professor Daniel Martin, College of Business and Economics, department of Management, California State University, East Bay, San Francisco, comments, “This is a natural, developmental progress that asserts itself every generation. The same cycle expresses itself with its entrance into adulthood and the workforce.” Martin, a Gen Xer, is also vice president at HR consultancy Alinea Group L.L.C., based in the San Francisco office. While Millennials will welcome the intellectual status quo of the workplace as it ages, the rest of us still have work to do. The enthusiasm Gen Y generates may make the workplace ebullient, but we can’t let them fly without ever resting their wings. Someone has to show them that manically moving forward can create combustion – or exhaustion, that there must be a continuum between what a person has done and wants to do. Lionizing risk requires living in the ether, much like the world of the Internet, but worse. Experience provides glue and personal promise. The digital world is only part of the real world. DR. MILDRED L. CULP, Workwise Features, is an award-winning journalist. E-mail questions or comments to culp@

HPU’s Keilitz shares vision E

ven with most of his moves paying dividends in several sports, High Point University athletics director Craig Keilitz admits that vision is lofty. “I have mixed emotions,” Keilitz said. “I want to win the championship in everything. But when you peel back the onion and take a closer look, I’m pleased with the SPORTS direction we’re headed.” Greer Keilitz was Smith brought in by HPU ■■■ president Nido Qubein in 2008 to take an athletics department not noted for winning championships in a more positive direction – a direction that included hiring a new baseball coach in Craig Cozart, a women’s soccer coach in Marty Beall and a men’s basketball coach in Scott Cherry. During the past school year, Panther teams got Keilitz one championship – in women’s soccer in Beall’s first year. Keilitz, however, is happy with the progress shown in other sports. Cozart, in his second season, guided the baseball team to fourth in the Big South at 15-12 and an overall record of 31-27 – by far the best since the move to Division I in 1999 and HPU’s first winning record on the diamond

since 1990. Cherry led the basketball team to a 15-15 overall mark and a 10-8 mark and fifthplace finish in the league in a rebound Keilitz from the 9-21, 4-12 campaign in Bart Lundy’s last season. Those weren’t the only positives. Men’s soccer finished second, men’s cross country was second in the league for the third time in a row and the women were third. The women’s basketball team tied for third, something of a disappointment after being tabbed as the conference preseason favorite. Some of the picture wasn’t quite as rose-colored. Men’s and women’s track both finished fifth, the men’s golf team dropped from third to fifth on the final day of the league tournament. Women’s golf finished seventh for the second straight year. The volleyball team finished 6-10 in the league. “Every year I’ll look back and think about a couple things we could have done better,” Keilitz said. “The progress of our sports programs is going faster than I thought it would. “A lot of it is getting the right people and retaining the right people. ... I tell people that the progress is not coming as quickly as I would like but it is coming along faster than I expected. It

takes some time to get the ship turned around.” Keilitz capped the year with another turn on the ship’s wheel by hiring a new women’s golf coach. And not just any coach. He was able to attract Vivi Pate Flesher, who guided Methodist University to seven straight NCAA Division III titles. In addition to winning team championships, Flesher helped produce 23 All Americans and two individual national champions. “She is about as good as you can get,” Kelitiz said. “We do extensive background research on any coaching candidate. I talked to three people who I know and trust. Diane Dailey, the coach at Wake Forest, who is a friend of mine from my days over there, told me ‘Holy cow, if you can get her, you will hit an absolute grand slam. She’ll develop your talent better than anyone else. She’ll recruit like crazy. She’s so widely respected as a coach and person, you will hit a home run with her.’ We got that reaction from person after person about her.” Just because the golf coaching hire came after the others doesn’t mean golf was taken less seriously. “It wasn’t about what was more important or a progression, it was about filling the voids at the appropriate time,” Keilitz said. Though not a priority now, Keilitz believes the Panthers will

expand the program with other sports in the future. Swimming, men’s lacrosse and football, yes football, are among sports being considered. Keilitz anticipates no sport will be added within two years. He was uncertain about a timetable for football. “We will definitely have football some day,” Keilitz said. “I don’t when it will be. (HPU president Nido) Qubein and I have talked about it quite a few times. The only way we are going to do it is when we can do it first class. In other words, when we’re championship caliber in all of our teams and financially we’re really strong and our facilities are right and so forth. “We don’t want to do it just to be adding football. A lot of schools have done it, just saying ‘let’s add football’ without doing their due diligence and have not done it right in my opinion. Bad football is not fun for anybody, especially when you consider the numbers to get it off the ground. You are talking about land, numbers of student athletes, added employees – not just football staff but also marketing, ticket people, equipment people, additional strength people, media relations people. It’s a lot more than adding some coaches and a football field and playing.” | 888-3556

Biershenk nips Weaver in epic finish EDITOR’S NOTE


Saturday’s third round of the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach ended too late to be included in today’s edition of The High Point Enterprise. Don’t miss complete coverage in Monday’s edition.


It took a record-setting performance by Tommy Biershenk to deny High Point’s Drew Weaver his first professional golf title. Biershenk posted an eGolf Tour 72-hole record score of 26 under par to capture the Bolle Classic on Saturday. The Boiling Springs

golfer raced to a final-round 62 and finished at 258, one stroke ahead of overnight leader Weaver (66-65-6365–259). The four-day tournament was held at The Country Club of Salisbury and Sapona Country Club of Lexington. In a gripping final-round duel, Weaver applied pressure by birdieing the last five holes, forcing

Biershenk to sink a 5-foot birdie putt on No. 18 to secure his third career eGolf Tour crown. Biershenk’s victory earned him $34,140 and a spot in the Nationwide Tour’s Price Cutter Championship set for August 12-15, 2010. Weaver, the 2007 British Amateur champion, earned $16,975 for his best career eGolf Tour finish.




he All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club could be the site of some All-American celebrations before this Wimbledon is done. On the women’s side, America’s Venus and Serena Williams have combined for eight of the past 10 singles crowns. Serena enters as the top seed with older sister seeded second, so they could be on course for a championship showdown.

The men’s draw may be dominated by top-seeded Roger Federer and second-seeded Rafael Nadal, but don’t forget about Andy Roddick. Last year, Roddick battled Federer in one of the most gripping, grueling men’s finals in recent memory. The duo split the first four sets before Federer took the fifth set 16-14. Roddick’s only grand slam title came at the 2003 U.S. Open, but he is 1-4 in major finals.

Three of those losses came to Federer at Wimbledon. Clearly, Roddick feels at home on the quick grass courts. A Wimbledon crown to add to his U.S. Open title would serve the talented American quite nicely. We’ll see how it all unfolds starting Monday.

The right-hander, who is 6-1 in his last seven starts against NL clubs, retired 20 Nationals in a row after Roger Bernadina’s second-inning single. His previous shutout was Aug. 23, 2005, a 2-0 win for San Diego over Houston. Carlos Quentin’s RBI single in the fourth sent the Nationals to their season-worst sixth consecutive defeat. A.J. Pierzynski had three hits for Chicago, which has won nine of 10 overall.

BLUE JAYS 3, GIANTS 0 TORONTO – Aaron Hill hit a tworun home run and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the San Francisco Giants 3-0 on Saturday afternoon. Hill broke a scoreless tie when he connected off Matt Cain with two out in the eighth, for the fifth homer allowed this season by the San Francisco right-hander. It was the 10th of the year for Hill, and Toronto’s major league-leading 105th. Shawn Camp (2-1) pitched one inning of relief for the win and Kevin Gregg closed it out in the ninth for his 18th save in 21 chances.

ANGELS 12, CUBS 0 CHICAGO – Howie Kendrick hit a leadoff homer to start a big day for the Los Angeles Angels’ offense and Jered Weaver pitched seven stellar innings in a 12-0 rout of the Chicago Cubs on Saturday. Juan Rivera hit a three-run double to cap a four-run first against Ted Lilly, who took a no-hitter into the ninth inning of his previous start. Torii Hunter added a two-run homer and Kendrick drove in three runs for the Angels, who improved to an AL-best 18-6 since May 24 and earned their 12th victory in 14 road games. Handed a comfortable cushion before he went to the mound, Weaver (7-3) yielded only two hits and struck out 11 without issuing a walk. He didn’t allow a runner past first base and has won consecutive starts for the first time this season.

RED SOX 5, DODGERS 4 BOSTON – Dustin Pedroia singled home the winning run with two outs in the ninth inning and the Boston Red Sox overcame Manny Ramirez’s homer to beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-4 on Saturday. Boston improved to 7-1 on a ninegame homestand and will go for a three-game sweep of the Dodgers when Clay Buchholz faces Hiroki Kuroda tonight. Ramirez homered in his second game back at Fenway Park against his former team, a sixth-inning solo shot off Tim Wakefield. Victor Martinez had a two-run homer and Kevin Youkilis a solo shot for the Red Sox. Wakefield made his 200th career start at Fenway, tying Roger Clemens for most in club history.

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) – College World Series newcomer TCU isn’t acting like it plans to go home any time soon. Undefeated freshman Matt Purke overcame early trouble to limit Florida State to four singles and one unearned run over seven innings Saturday, and the Horned Frogs scored five times in the first inning on their way to an 8-1 victory in the CWS opener. Coming off a hardearned super-regional win at Texas last week, the Frogs gave Purke a big cushion and continued the Seminoles’ frustration in Omaha. “This is the point of the season when there are only going to be great teams left playing,” TCU coach Jim Schlossnagle said. “What we went through last week, there was no tougher situation. Ninety percent of baseball is confidence, and our guys feel good about themselves. That doesn’t mean we’re going to win every time, but we’re going to be ready to play.” The Frogs (52-12) advanced to a Monday night game against the winner of Saturday night’s Florida-UCLA game. The Seminoles (47-19), at the CWS for the 20th time, have lost five of their last six CWS openers and will play the Florida-UCLA loser in a Monday afternoon Bracket 1 elimination game. “I wish there was something I could say that would make any sense,” Florida State coach Mike Martin said. “Certainly we’re disappointed, but this TCU club is very good. They whipped us today, and I got a few of those on my resume, and so it’s nothing new.” TCU is the first team to win its CWS debut since Georgia Tech in 1994 — a team that featured future Boston Red Sox stars Nomar Garciaparra and Jason Varitek. “They’re everything I saw when I saw them play Texas on television,” Martin said of TCU. Florida State broke out to a 1-0 lead in the first inning, but the Frogs responded with five runs in the bottom half. Jason Coats’ double into the

left-field corner put TCU up 2-1 before Seminoles’ starter Sean Gilmartin recorded an out. The Frogs led 7-1 after Jantzen Witte scored on Brance Rivera’s suicidesqueeze bunt in the third and Bryan Holaday hit his 14th homer in the fourth. The Seminoles tested Purke right away. Tyler Holt lined the lefthander’s first pitch of the game into left field, and he scored when TCU third baseman Jantzen Witte picked up Sherman Johnson’s short bouncer and threw into the right-field bullpen. But Purke settled down, striking out Mike McGee, James Ramsey and Stephen Cardullo in order to strand Johnson at third. The Seminoles ended up 0 for 13 with runners in scoring position. “I thought the first inning was a differencemaker,” Schlossnagle said. “You saw what we’ve seen all year. The more pressure the situation, the more that he’s cornered, the better he is. A freshman in Omaha didn’t panic and just made pitches.” Purke (15-0), who turned down a $4 million offer last year as the Texas Rangers’ top draft pick, mixed his new changeup with a fastball in the mid 90s and a devastating curveball. After Holt’s firstinning hit, Purke didn’t allow another ball out of the infield until the seventh. He did walk four to match a season high. Eric Marshall pitched two innings of scoreless relief, with Holt grounding out to third to end the game and set off the Frogs’ celebration in the field. TCU, the first team to score at least five runs in its first-ever CWS game since Wichita State in 1982, gave Purke plenty of cushion. Jerome Pena and Holaday led off the bottom of the first with backto-back singles against Gilmartin (9-8) before Coats hit the go-ahead double. Joe Weik and Aaron Schultz added RBI singles and Taylor Featherston a sacrifice fly. Florida State has never won a CWS title in its 19 previous trips to Omaha.

LeBron makes dramatic appearance at Akron rally AKRON, Ohio (AP) – LeBron James turned his big bash into a surprise party. With thousands of hometown fans already gone or leaving “LeBron Appreciation Day” on Saturday, James stunned everyone by walking through a side gate into nearly empty InfoCision Stadium on the University of Akron’s campus – after the event officially ended. As fans screamed and pushed to get closer to the two-time NBA MVP, James, who lives a short drive from the school, made his way down to the playing field. James was then presented with a gorgeous crystal trophy, which had to be pulled out of a box after being packed away. “Akron is my home, it’s my life,” James told the crowd after accepting the city’s first Hometown Hero Award. “Everything I do is for this city. I’m going to continue to do great things. I love every last one of you all. Akron is home.” James was then escorted through a door to the football team’s locker room and waved to fans before disappearing almost as quickly as he arrived. Before James’ shocking entrance, nearly 4,000 fans celebrated all things LeBron. They came to honor the local kid, who has put Akron on the map but who will soon decide if he wants to stay with the Cleveland Cavaliers or sign with another team. James has remained noncommittal about his future, and is not expected to address his plans before free agency begins on July 1. The 25-year-old did not commit to organizers that he would be at the event.

Tiger roars back

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (AP) – Prime time brings out the best in Tiger Woods at the U.S. Open. Nine shots out of the lead after a pair of sloppy bogeys early in his round, Woods came to life Saturday at Pebble Beach with some clutch putts and extraordinary shots that had been missing since his return to golf two months ago. He birdied his last three holes for a 5-under 66 – his best round of the year – that put him at 1-under 212 through 54 holes and smack into contention going into the final round. The old Tiger showed up on the 18th. Blocked behind a pair of cypress trees, some 265 yards from the flag into an ocean breeze, Woods hit a 3-wood toward the Pacific and urged it on toward the green. “C’mon! C’mon!” he screamed at it, and followed that with a “Yes!” when it stopped 15 feet away. Graeme McDowell birdied his first two holes and made the turn at 5-under with a 4-foot birdie on the ninth. He had a one-shot lead over Dustin Johnson. Phil Mickelson, who started the final round two shots behind, was 3 over for the round and seven shots out of the lead as he made his way along the back nine. The USGA pushed back the starting times so the third round could be broadcast in prime time on the East Coast.


Tiger Woods reacts after making a birdie putt on the 16th hole during the third round of the U.S. Open on Saturday at the Pebble Beach Golf Links in Pebble Beach, Calif. Woods carded a sizzling 5-under-par 31 on the back nine and shot 66 for the round to stand 1-under through 54 holes. Woods lurks in contention for his fourth U.S. Open crown and 15th major overall entering today’s final round.

Daly four strokes back at Nationwide event FORT SMITH, Ark. (AP) – John Daly was four strokes off the lead after shooting a 1-under 69 in the third round of the Fort Smith Classic on Saturday. Josh Broadaway (65) moved to the top of the leaderboard at the 6,873-

yard Hardscrabble Country Club course. He led by one stroke at 11 under. Daly started well with birdies on Nos. 2 and 3 and was within one stroke of the lead, but the two-time major champion bogeyed three of his final 12 holes. Daly began the day tied

for fifth but ended in a tie for 13th at 7 under. This is Daly’s first Nationwide Tour event since 1991. He is from Dardanelle, about 75 miles from Fort Smith, and organizers hope he can help this struggling tournament find a title sponsor.

Rough road: Johnson hopes his luck turns in Sonoma SONOMA, Calif. (AP) – Jimmie Johnson hasn’t been to Victory Lane in 10 races, his longest drought in two years. NASCAR’s four-time defending champion has finished outside the top-10 in five of the last seven races and dropped to seventh in the Sprint Cup Series standings. And now he’s at Infineon Raceway, one of just five tracks where he’s never won a Cup race. It’s not that being in wine country poses a problem. Johnson’s just not that good at road course racing. “Everybody knows how much I have focused on it and how badly I want to win on a road course, especially here,” said Johnson, a Californian. “It’s time.” Johnson has progressively gotten better at Infineon, where he’s cracked the top-five just twice and has averaged a 17th place finish in eight career starts. He was a careerbest fourth last year, but didn’t carry that improvement into Watkins Glen, the only other road course in

the series, where he finished 12th last August. But after qualifying second for today’s race – he briefly held the pole until he was bumped by defending winner Kasey Kahne – Johnson believes he’s got a chance at winning on a road course. “I feel really good about it,” said Johnson, who has run two GrandAm events this year for more practice. “We’ve been testing and doing everything I can to be a better road course driver and to get our cars better. So we’ll see what happens.” His lack of success in Sonoma became a topic of conversation this weekend, even as Johnson keeps ducking the assertion he’s in some sort of slump. He’s scoffed at that notion for weeks – even though he had three finishes of 31st or worse last month. But he’s clearly aware of the perception. He joked that “everybody keeps saying I’m in a slump” when presented with his trophy for being the first quarter winner in Driver

Of The Year voting. Johnson was honored for winning three of the first five races this season, a span dating to Bristol in March. “I get accused of being a little intense at times, so I’m trying to make sure to laugh a little bit,” he said, referring to his slump reference. “There is no doubt that the month of May was tough on us. I made mistakes. We had some unfortunate luck. We just had some bad races and it made for a long month. But I don’t think we’re in a slump. We’re not where we want to be, but I wouldn’t call it a slump.” Johnson could go a long way to silencing the slump talk with a win on the twisting 11-turn, 1.99mile course through picturesque Sonoma, a track that requires a far different skill set from the usual all-left-turn racing on NASCAR’s ovals. AP “It is fair to say that when you’ve won on a road course, people look NASCAR driver Jimmie Johnson runs, trying to get to his at you differently,” Jeff Burton car for Saturday’s practice at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, Calif. says.

Power grabs first IRL pole on oval NEWTON, Iowa (AP) — Will Power has made a name for himself on road courses, but he’s always wanted to be considered one of the best all-around drivers in the Indy Racing League. Power took a major step in that direction on Saturday, winning his first career pole on an oval course for Sunday’s Iowa 250. Power has now earned four poles this season and six in his last 14 IndyCar Series races. But by earning the front spot on the Iowa Speedway’s .875-mile short oval, Power put himself in the best position yet for what he really wants — that elusive first oval win. “It’s great to get an oval pole. But I mean, I’d love to win a race on an oval. That’s the real beginning,” Power said. Power gave Team Penske a record seventh straight IndyCar pole position. He qualified with an average lap of 181.337 mph, beating out Scott Dixon by a fraction of a second. Dixon joined Power on the front row for Sunday’s race. Marco Andretti will start third and Helio Castroneves is fourth. Points leader

D a r i o Franchitti, who won at Iowa in 2007 and 2009, will Power start fifth and Danica Patrick will start ninth. Power won the first two races of the season, road courses in Sao Paulo and St. Petersburg, and sits three points behind Franchitti in the points standings. But he’s got just one top-10 finish on an oval in 2010, coming in eighth at the Indy 500. Power finished ninth in his debut at Iowa last season. “You’ve got to have a solid car around here, and honestly I think it’s about reading the traffic well,” Power said. “It’s easy to get held up, so you’ve got to be smart with that.” Dixon has been the most consistent driver at Iowa the past few seasons — save for Franchitti, of course — with a fourth-place finish in 2008 and a fifthplace finish last year. Andretti’s been solid at Iowa Speedway as well, finishing second in 2007.

Briscoe looks to serve Franchitti first Iowa loss NEWTON, Iowa (AP) — Ryan Briscoe didn’t realize Dario Franchitti was a perfect two-fortwo at the Iowa Speedway until reporters asked him about it before Saturday’s practice session at the Iowa Speedway. “We’ve got to beat that guy!” Briscoe said. “And he’s leading the championship now, too.” There’s little doubt that Franchitti will be the favorite for Sunday’s Iowa 250. Franchitti won the first race at Iowa’s .875-mile oval in 2007 and, after a year in NASCAR, held off Briscoe to take the checkered flag in 2009. Franchitti also heads into Sunday’s Iowa 250 three points clear of Will Power atop the IndyCar standings and 11 points ahead of Scott Dixon in the IRL’s new oval standings. Briscoe is currently

fifth overall, 38 points behind Franchitti. But he’s in much better shape now than he was before winning at Texas two weeks ago. “It was a huge day for me in the points. I was going into Texas really not feeling like I had a chance at all in this championship. I thought it had gotten away from me,” said Briscoe, who’ll start eighth on Sunday. “We don’t have to win every weekend. We just need to try to get some consistency, which was definitely something that we lacked to begin the year.” Briscoe led Iowa for 85 laps last year and has picked up wins at three different ovals — Kentucky, Chicagoland and Texas — since the start of last season, so he’ll be among the top picks to end Franchitti’s reign in Iowa.

Force Hood sets pace at Bristol BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) — Ashley Force Hood secured her 11th career No. 1 qualifying position in Funny Car on Saturday at the NHRA Thunder Valley Nationals at Bristol Dragway. The other No. 1 qualifiers at the 12th of 23 races in the series were Antron Brown (Top Fuel) and Allen Johnson (Pro Stock). Force Hood set the top-qualifying mark — her second this season — with a 4.151-second pass at a top speed of 296.70 mph in Friday’s night qualifying session and it held up through Saturday. Brown’s 3.856-second pass at 314.24 mph on Friday night also held up. It was his fourth No. 1 of the season. Johnson, from Greeneville, Tenn., earned the top spot with a 6.722second pass at 205.10 mph on Saturday in his Mopar Dodge.


Carl Edwards celebrates by executing his trademark backflip after winning the 200mile Nationwide Series race on Saturday at the Road America road course. It was Edwards’ first victory of the year in either the Nationwide Series or the Cup Series.

Edwards waters victory drought ELKHART LAKE, Wis. (AP) — Carl Edwards swooped past Jacques Villeneuve on a restart with nine laps to go, then ran away from the field to win the NASCAR Nationwide series race at Road America on Saturday. Villeneuve made a wild charge to the lead with 12 laps to go. But another caution bunched up the field, allowing Edwards to make his decisive move. Ron Fellows finished second in a Chevrolet, 4.302 seconds behind Edwards’ Ford. Brendan Gaughan finished third in a Toyota. Villeneuve had mechanical problems in the closing laps, costing him a potential second-place finish. With the win, Edwards showed he could hold his own against some topnotch road course racers. “It feels good,” Edwards said in a television interview in Victory Lane. “To race with Jacques Villeneuve all day, to hold off Ron Fellows at the end, it’s just cool.” Edwards, Paul Menard and Brad Keselowski will fly back to California to run the Sprint Cup race

at Sonoma on Sunday. And for the third year in a row, Edwards made the most of his cross-country commute. It was Edwards’ third straight win in the series’ annual trip to Wisconsin — but this time at a new venue, as the scenic fourmile road course replaced the financially troubled Milwaukee Mile on the schedule this season. For a while, it looked like Villeneuve, the 1997 Formula One champion and 1995 Indianapolis 500 winner, might steal the show. After taking a restart with 12 laps to go, Villeneuve charged from eighth to first in half a lap, with Edwards right behind him. Villeneuve’s tire was smoking significantly, as it appeared to be rubbing against damaged bodywork on the front end of his car. Yet another crash brought out another caution, and Villeneuve took a restart with nine laps remaining not knowing if his tire would hold up for the remainder of the race. Edwards then roared past Villeneuve and into the lead in Turn 1, and Villeneuve

— his tire still smoking — tried to chase him down. Another wreck set up a restart with three to go, allowing Fellows, a veteran road-racing ace, to pass Gaughan for third. Villeneuve was in second with two laps to go, but began to slip back in the pack with mechanical issues and finished 25th. Keselowski, who came into Saturday’s race leading the series points standings, finished fourth. The race was filled with several long delays to clean up accidents, including a red flag period lasting more than half an hour after a nine-car pileup just past the race’s halfway point. It was a rough race for Justin Allgaier, who came into Saturday third in the Nationwide series points standings. Allgaier ran off the track on the second lap of the race, coming to a stop on the hill between Turns 5 and 6. He couldn’t get the car moving again and had to be towed back to the garage. Allgaier eventually re-entered the race and finished 35th.

Pruett, Rojas make it 5-for-7 LEXINGTON, Ohio (AP) — Scott Pruett and Memo Rojas combined to win Saturday’s race, giving them five victories in seven Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series events this season. Rojas started from the pole and led twice for 26 laps in the early going, while Pruett paced the final 38 of 107 circuits in the 2 hour, 45-minute race at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. The Chip Ganassi Racing duo also increased their lead in the Daytona Prototype championship to 32 points with five races remaining. Ozz Negri and John Pew were second, 2.991 seconds behind, holding off third-place finishers Mark Wilkins and Burt Frisselle at the finish. Michael Valiante and Brian Frisselle finished fourth. It was the duo’s first race in that car after the team’s Riley was destroyed in a fire in the most recent Rolex Series race at Watkins Glen, N.Y. Joey Hand and Bill Auberlen combined to give the BMW M6 its first victory in the production-based GT class, driving the No. 94 entry for Turner Motorsport .



Stories for fishing rods at Friendship Elementary T

he tiniest things can have a profound effect on a life. I’ve spent my adult life involved with the hobby of shooting and I can clearly tie the beginning down to one simple event. When I was 12, someone left a 1964 Guns and Ammo magazine at our house. I was a voracious reader and I consumed the contents of that magazine and was filled with a desire to know more. Since that time, I competed in countless competitions, became involved in the politics of shooting by running the North Carolina Rifle and Pistol Association, and later, ran the state’s High Power Rifle Team. The very best part of that adventure was not the year we SPORTS finished third in the National Championships, it was the time I spent with Dick the mixed collection of 14 to 20 year olds Jones that comprised the State Junior Team. ■■■ Many of those “kids,” who are now on the verge of reaching 40 and have kids the age they were when I piled them into a van for a week of shooting at Camp Perry, still are in contact with me today. In fact, one called me last week to give me some family news and ask what was wrong with his smallbore rifle. Knowing I had a real effect on their lives is my most precious shooting accomplishment. Last year, I received an outdoor story written by Justin Todd, a Friendship Elementary School fourth grader. Justin’s story described a turkey hunting trip and was filled with excitement and told the story so well, I could almost see it happen. I enjoyed it so much, I decided to send it to Mark McKinney, the sports editor at The High Point Enterprise, and sug-



Boom! I slammed the door to get away from the hot summer air. It was midsummer and my Grandpa, brothers, and I were going fishing for the first time. I had got a new fishing rod for the trip. The ride took ten minutes, but it felt like ten hours. As soon as we got there I got my rod and bait and hooked the worm on the hook and let it fly. I waited and waited and waited. Then, something tugged. I yelled and my Grandpa came. He helped my get the fish on land. It was a bass! Six pounds and seven inches! I could not believe it. Then it jumped out of my hands and into the water. I was so happy that I caught it and I was happy that I didn’t get pulled into the water. – CAMMIE PHILLIPS, FOURTH-GRADER IN MS. DAVIS CLASS AT FRIENDSHIP ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

gested we run it in the Enterprise along with Justin’s picture. This set me thinking about the merits of Justin’s story and how, if I’d had a positive experience involving writing, would I have begun writing sooner instead of starting at such a late age? Maybe I would have and maybe not, but I believe I’ve derived almost as much pleasure out of writing as I did shooting. A while after reading Justin’s story, I got in touch with his teacher at Friendship Elementary School and asked if she was interested in me talking to the class about writing. When I met with the class, I was amazed at the level of interest and enthusiasm.

I speak to a lot of groups, but I’ve never had a better audience. We decided to have an outdoor writing contest with a first prize of a Quantum fishing rod and reel. There were questions about writing and questions about the contest. I left the school feeling better than I have after any hunt or fishing trip in years. I hope you enjoy reading the winning story as much as I, but I mostly hope you’ll consider sharing a part of your life with this coming generation. Almost every one of us has something we can share. You never know when you might take a kid fishing or hunting who turns out to be the next outdoor icon. Sure, my friend Justin Todd or the contest winner, Cammie Phillips, might not continue in an outdoor pursuit or become a famous writer, but I’ve been enriched and charged up just by their enthusiasm and made a few friends to boot. I enjoyed reading the stories so much, I’ve decided to extend the offer. If your school would like to have me come talk to the fourth-grade class, contact me and I’ll try to work it into my schedule. We’ll announce more about the writing contest for the upcoming school year. I’m really looking forward to reading all the great stories and making new friends. After all, a fellow can’t have too many friends. DICK JONES IS a freelance writer living in High Point.

Seymour signs $12.4-million franchise tag with Raiders

Nice catch! Andy Thomason of Richmond, Va. and his crew brought home the big fish in the 52nd annual Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament. Captain Eric Holmes and the Citation brought a winner to the scales on the first day of the tournament. Holmes, of Buxton, and the Citation started the tournament with a record-breaking 883pound blue marlin on the first day. The catch instantly earned the Citation crew a $318,750 prize for landing the first blue marlin to weigh more than 500 pounds and wound up the winning fish for a total prize of $912,825. Thomason, of Richmond, Va. knew this was a serious fish as soon as he picked up the rod. “It was a fight from the start,” Thomason said. “We got it to the first tag line and then the second and then the fish took off again. The fish never got out of the water. It was a hard fight and when it was all over with I was weak in the knees ... and the arms too. For a 63-yearold man, it was about all I wanted to handle.” It was also the first blue marlin Thomason had ever caught.


ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) – Defensive lineman Richard Seymour signed his $12.4 million exclusive franchise tag tender with the Oakland Raiders on Saturday. The move means all of the Raiders’ veterans are under contract for next season. The team announced the signing on its website, adding that the process of signing rookies would begin soon. By placing the tag on Seymour in February, the Raiders guaranteed Seymour a salary for next season of at least $12.398 million, which was the average salary earned last year by the five highest-paid defensive ends in the league. Seymour, 31, was not allowed to negotiate with other teams so it was inevitable that he would return to the Raiders. Coach Tom Cable said the sides had been working on a longterm deal during the offseason but Seymour signed the one-year deal instead. Because Seymour was not under contract, he missed Oakland’s entire offseason program.

He will rejoin the team when training camp starts in Napa on July 28. The Raiders acquired Seymour just before the start of last season by sending a 2011 firstround pick to New England. He was paid about $3.7 million last season. Seymour was a stalwart in New England after being drafted sixth overall in 2001. He played on three Super Bowl winners with the Patriots, recording 39 career sacks and being selected to the Pro Bowl for five straight seasons beginning in 2002. Seymour made an impressive debut just days after arriving in Oakland, recording two sacks in a seasonopening loss to San Diego. But Seymour had only two more sacks in the final 15 games and was unable to solve the Raiders’ run defense woes. The Raiders finished the season 5-11, their NFL-worst seventh straight season with at least 11 losses. Oakland finished 29th in run defense at 155.5 yards per game.

Excitement returns to All England Club THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

“Rodd-ick! Rodd-ick! Roddick!” Surprising as it may have been to hear full-throated chants echo through the often-staid Centre Court stands – 15,000 or so voices rising as one in the moments after last year’s Wimbledon final concluded with a 16-14 fifth set – what was most remarkable was the name the spectators chose to yell. They did not salute the champion, Roger Federer, who claimed his sixth title at Wimbledon and record-breaking 15th Grand Slam title overall. Instead, they hailed the runner-up, Andy Roddick, who dropped to 1-4 in major finals, including 0-3 at the All England Club — each loss against Federer. “Rodd-ick! Rodd-ick! Roddick!” When Wimbledon begins Monday, Roddick will resume his quest for a championship that would mean quite a lot to him, one that barely eluded him in 2009. Roddick served almost im-

peccably and was broken only once, in the 77th and last game of Federer’s 5-7, 7-6 (6), 7-6 (5), 3-6, 16-14 victory – the longest match and longest fifth set, in terms of games, in Grand Slam final history. And don’t forget this: Roddick injured his hip when he tumbled to the court in the fourth set. There are plenty of players who could block the No. 5-seeded Roddick’s path, including the top-seeded Federer, who has reached a record seven consecutive Wimbledon finals. The only loss in those seven? That came in 2008 against Federer’s nemesis, Rafael Nadal. Other men to watch include No. 4 Andy Murray, Britain’s best hope to end a Grand Slam title drought that extends to the 1930s; No. 6 Robin Soderling, who ended Nadal’s record 31-match French Open winning streak last year and ended Federer’s record streak of 23 consecutive Grand Slam semifinals at the French Open this month; and No. 18 Sam Querrey of Santa Monica, Calif., who won a tuneup title on grass last weekend.

Kjaer. HISTORY The Netherlands’ 1-0 win over Japan set a record of 10 straight victories for the Dutch in World Cup qualifiers and finals matches — a run that includes eight qualification matches and its two victories in South Africa. It also extended the Dutch record of never losing to an Asian team. It has now won eight matches and tied one against Asian opponents. GOAL OF THE DAY Denmark’s Nicklas Bendtner scored off a brilliant three-man play, with defender Simon Kjaer sending a perfect long pass to Dennis Rommedahl on right wing. He fed Bendtner in front for a short redirection for the Danes’ first goal in a 2-1 victory. LOOKAHEAD Nelspruit Defending champion Italy, which needed a comeback to draw 1-1 with Paraguay, plays New Zealand (10 a.m. at Nelspruit) in Group F. New Zealand also tied its opener, 1-1 against Slovakia. Italy’s standout goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, a hero of the 2006 world championship, is sidelined with a herniated disk. Federico Marchetti will start. The Kiwis took the lead twice and led at halftime in a friendly a year ago as both teams warmed up for the Confederations Cup. Italy rallied to win 4-2. Five-time winner Brazil plays Ivory Coast (2:30 p.m. at Johannesburg) in Group G. Brazil struggled to beat North Korea 2-1 in its opener, but can advance with a win against the Ivorians, who drew 0-0 with Portugal. Ivory Coast striker Didier Drogba might start after making a successful return from a broken right arm with a 24-minute substitute appearance against Portugal. Slovakia faces Paraguay (7:30 a.m at Bloemfontein) in Group F. Slovakia is playing in its first major tournament since the former Czechoslovakia divided in 1993. Paraguay striker Roque Santa Cruz should be more fit after playing just the final 22 minutes against Italy. QUOTABLE “It’s devastating for me. There was no intent. The referee has killed my World Cup.” — Australia’s Harry Kewell after being ejected in the 24th minute for using his hand to block a shot at the goal line. The Aussies tied Ghana 1-1.

World Cup on Saturday

JOHANNESBURG (AP) — A look at Day 9 Saturday at the 2010 World Cup (all times EDT): RESULTS Netherlands 1, Japan 0, Group E, Netherlands advances Ghana 1, Australia 1, Group D Denmark 2, Cameroon 1, Group E, Denmark eliminated HIGHLIGHTS Australia played with 10 men for more than 66 minutes and drew with Ghana 1-1 at Rustenberg. Harry Kewell was ejected in the 24th minute for blocking a shot at the goal line with his hand, and the Black Stars scored on the subsequent penalty kick. But the Socceroos not only held on for the draw, they attacked numerous times in trying to get a win. Netherlands’ 1-0 win over Japan and Denmark’s 2-1 victory over Cameroon lifted the Dutch into the second round, the first team to advance. Cameroon is the first team eliminated, though it has a game remaining in Group E against the Dutch. STARS Asamoah Gyan, Ghana, got his second goal of the tournament, both on penalty kicks, in a 1-1 draw with Australia. He precisely sent the ball to the right side of the net while goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer dived the other way. Dennis Rommedahl scored one goal and set up another as Denmark beat Cameroon 2-1. Rommedahl charged down the right wing and spun around Jean Makoun before hitting a well-aimed shot past goalkeeper Hamidou Souleymanou in the 61st minute. Rommedahl had assisted on the equalizer by Nicklas Bendtner, who received a feed from Rommedahl following a superb long pass by Simon

U.S. focuses on Algeria IRENE, South Africa (AP) – The U.S. is moving on, with no way to appeal the disallowed goal that would have given the Americans a lead in their 2-2 World Cup tie against Slovenia. Referee Koman Coulibaly of Mali called off an apparent goal by Maurice Edu off Landon Donovan’s free kick in the 85th minute Friday night. The U.S. already had rallied from a two-goal deficit. “There is no process for appeals for a decision on the field,” team spokesman Michael Kammarman said Saturday. “We have not asked for any official comment from FIFA in regards to the call.” Players asked Coulibaly repeatedly why he whistled off the goal. Speculation has ranged from a possible foul on American captain Carlos Bocanegra, who had an arm around Nejc Pecnik, and one on Clint Dempsey, who pushed Andraz Kirm. Looking at the replay, more Slovenes were holding Americans than vice versa. Aleksandar Radosavljevic held Michael Bradley in a bear hug, Bradley had his own theory: Coulibaly might have regretted his decision to award the free kick. Valter Birsa had been called for a foul on Steve Cherundolo. “I think it’s a good goal, first. I think the only things really that could be called would be penalty kicks for us,” coach Bob Bradley said. “There are times when a referee, for whatever reason, blows a foul and now thinks either he didn’t make the correct call on the foul or from a previous play, and then literally as soon as the free kick’s taken, he blows his whistle, OK? “So you can speculate all you want about which guy and everything, I think it’s a waste of time. All right? I think there was nothing there. I think it’s a good goal. And that’s that.” The U.S. team has been besieged with questions why soccer referees don’t publicly explain controversial decisions, as umpires and referees do in U.S. sports. “We’re all accustomed to the fact that if it’s an NFL playoff game and there’s a call that’s in question, there will be a statement by the league from the referees, but FIFA operates differently,” Bradley said. “There are some aspects of it that are not made 100 percent clear. That seems to add to the discussion about the game. So from our end we get used to that.” The U.S. would advance from the group phase if it beats Algeria on Wednesday or even with a tie as long as England loses to Slovenia. If the U.S. and England both draw, the Americans would advance if they maintain their goal advantage over the English, currently 3-1. But if England draws and scores two more goals than the U.S. does in the final game, the United States and England would finish even on all tiebreakers. FIFA would conduct a drawing of lots – it’s unclear whether that means a coin flip or another method – to determine which team goes to the second round. The only time lots were used in a World Cup was in 1990, when the format was slightly different and 24 teams competed. Both Ireland and the Netherlands advanced with exactly the same results, and FIFA used lots to determine the Irish would finish second in Group F and the Dutch would be third. In the next round, the Netherlands lost to eventual champion Germany, while Ireland won a shootout over Romania to get to the quarterfinals, where it fell to host Italy.

Go Dutch – The Netherlands advances in World Cup THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

DURBAN, South Africa – Wesley Sneijder scored the only goal and the Netherlands beat Japan 1-0. The victory, combined with Denmark’s 2-1 win over Cameroon, clinched a spot in the second round for the Dutch. Sneijder’s 53rd-minute strike finally broke through a Japanese defense that had stifled Dutch creativity in front of 62,010 fans at Moses Mabhida Stadium. The Netherlands again failed to live up to its billing as one of the most fluid attacking teams of the tournament, though it won nevertheless. The Dutch struggled to a 2-0 victory over Denmark in its first Group E match.

Breast cancer survivor Teresa Allen participated in a clinical study of yoga for cancer patients.

A big for

Study demonstrates program’s benefits to cancer survivors BY JIMMY TOMLIN ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER


IGH POINT – When Teresa Allen was diagnosed with breast cancer five years ago, she more or less knew the weapons she had in her arsenal to battle the disease. Surgery. Chemotherapy. Radiation. Faith in God. Support from family, friends and fellow church members, not to mention her doctors and nurses. One weapon she hadn’t counted on – but which she says definitely made a difference in her battle – was yoga. “I feel like I benefited from yoga tremendously,” the 60-year-old Jamestown woman says. “My sleep was better, my quality of life improved, and my level of stress was much lower.” If Allen’s claims about yoga seem like,

’I believe in yoga now, and I didn’t necessarily believe in it before this study.’ Dr. George Sanders Oncologist well, a bit of a stretch, they’re not. She was one of more than two dozen area cancer patients who participated in a national study to determine whether yoga could benefit cancer survivors, and the study found just what Allen described – improved sleep, less fatigue and a higher overall quality of life. The findings of the study, which was funded by the National Institutes of Health, were presented earlier this month at the American Society of Clinical Oncology’s annual meeting.


Increased flexibility is a key benefit of a yoga program. “They randomized patients, with half of them receiving yoga-based treatment plus standard of care and the other half receiving just standard of care without the yoga,” explains Dr. George Sanders of Emerywood Hematology & Oncology, who served as the study’s principle investigator in High Point. “They looked at sleep, quality of life and fatigue, and in all cases, yoga helped. It was a significant success – the people who were getting yoga obviously did better and felt better. I believe in yoga now, and I didn’t necessarily believe in it before this study. I’ll recommend it to my patients.” The findings are significant because,



Earlier this month, Dr. Karen Mustian of the University of Rochester Medical Center in New York presented the findings of her study on cancer and yoga at the annual meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology. More than two dozen area cancer patients participated in the study at the Cancer Center of High Point Regional Health System. Among the findings were the following: • Twenty-two percent of yoga participants reported improved sleep, compared to only 12 percent of those who didn’t do yoga. • Twenty-nine percent of yoga participants reported less daytime sleepiness, compared to only 5 percent of those who didn’t do yoga. • Six percent of yoga participants reported an improved quality of life, compared to no change among those who didn’t do yoga. • Forty-two percent of yoga participants reported less fatigue, compared to only 12 percent of those who didn’t do yoga.

according to national statistics, approximately two-thirds of cancer survivors have difficulty sleeping – even two years after they’ve finished their treatment – and more than that experience chronic fatigue. Allen, who works for the Guilford County Department of Public Health, says yoga especially improved her sleep. “The stretching and the breathing exercises really helped with my sleep,” she says. “At the end of class, after we’d done our poses and exercises, we would have relaxation for 10 minutes or so. The instructor would turn out the lights, position us so we were comfortable, and we’d do meditation and relaxing, and some of us were so relaxed after that we would almost fall asleep, and we really didn’t want to leave. It was just a very positive experience – I didn’t realize yoga could give me that much relaxation.” Allen found the yoga so beneficial that she continued doing yoga during her lunch break even after her particular class stopped meeting. She even solicited co-workers to join her. “I don’t do it every day,” she says, “but if I don’t do it, I really can feel a difference, especially in my back and in my breathing. The yoga helps me relax and releases the tension and stress from my body.” Allen’s instructor, Susan Rostand, is a retired physical therapist who teaches gentle yoga to cancer patients. “The study had a set sequence I had to do every single time, and it was a very calming, relaxing sequence,” Rostand says. “The students all told me they were feeling more relaxed and sleeping better.”


The Guilford County Department of Public Health is offering the QuitSmart smoking cessation class series in Greensboro in July. The series consists of one class per week for four weeks. Each class lasts 90 minutes, and there is no cost to the participants for the session or materials. These classes are open to any Guilford County adult resident. Class size is limited to 12 participants. The evening series will begin on July 8 and ends July 29 and will meet each Thursday. Classes will be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the health department’s 1100 E. Wendover Ave. location. For more information or to register, contact Kim Herzing at (336) 420-0933 or Catherine Richardson at (336) 641-4718. QuitSmart utilizes evidencebased techniques (cognitive behavioral strategies, brand-fading, self-hypnosis compact disc, patented cigarette substitute) that have proven to be more effective than other stopsmoking programs. In a study at five U.S. Air Force bases, 66 percent of QuitSmart participants were still smokefree six months after quitting. Tobacco use is the number one preventable cause of death in our state and in our nation. Individuals interested in quitting can also receive free expert support by using QuitLineNC.

Your willingness to visualize will enable you to make moves that lead to your success and happiness. Limiting what you can do by taking on responsibilities that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t belong to you will lead to regret. Think and act fast. Your numbers are 7, 15, 22, 26, 30, 36, 41 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t leave anything to chance. Address issues that may be holding you back before you make a final decision that can affect a personal or professional partnership. Ask questions, get answers and move on. â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026; TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Your accommodating attitude will enable you to get others to pitch in and help. Acquiring information about a person, place or subject will offer you the information you need to make an informed decision about a career move. â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026; GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You may be in the mood to have fun or go shopping but overspending will take its toll, giving way to stress. A relaxing, no-pressure day at home can be quite rewarding emotionally if you view home movies and discuss future plans. â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026; CANCER (June 21-July 22): Expect the unexpected and prepare to accept the inevitable. Once you are mentally ready to deal with change, everything else will come easy. Open your eyes, your heart and your mind to whatever comes your way. â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026; LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Deal with any personal matters by being completely honest about the way you feel and what you want to work toward.

Expect to be confronted with challenging but in-

teresting conversations that will help clear up issues that concern you. Love shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cost you financially. â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026; LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Face whatever emotional concerns are raised and own up to anything you may have done wrong. You need to address matters so you move in a positive direction personally and professionally. A move or change at home will make you feel better. â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026; SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You cannot trust what is being done and what isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Go over any documents that may need updating. Once you feel confident that all your papers are in order, you can enjoy your day.

Dad may now qualify for Medicare assistance


Last year, my father applied for some extra help to pay for his prescription drugs as they are so expensive. He has very little income but was denied because of his life insurance policies. I will be visiting him for Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day this year and heard that something had changed. Will he now qualify? A.

ear Abby: Over the last year I have noticed cleavage everywhere. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the middle and high schools, the teller waiting on me at the bank, the cashier at the supermarket and department stores â&#x20AC;&#x201C; all offering plunging frontal views. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe management allows this, and for the younger women, I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe their parents permit it. These females look like theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re dressed for a romantic evening, not as employees of reputable businesses or students. Am I just getting old or has this become acceptable? I would like to stop doing business with these companies, but if I do Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have no place to shop. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your opinion? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Believe My Eyes, Ulster Park, N.Y. Dear Canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Believe Your Eyes: Are you just noticing this? It has been happening for years. And Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not referring only to the amount of cleavage women are showing. Havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you noticed how much thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s showing â&#x20AC;&#x153;south of the borderâ&#x20AC;? on females and males? Many businesses have dress codes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and if enough customers complain or take their business elsewhere, managers might adhere to them. As to the students â&#x20AC;&#x201C; most schools have dress codes, but whether the rules are enforced is another matter entirely. Dear Abby: My husband, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Herb,â&#x20AC;? and I are middle-aged and have been married four years. Herb is a wonderful husband, and we are very happy. I cook, and he usually cleans up â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including washing several dishes and cooking utensils by hand. (He doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like to use the dishwasher.) Abby, this sweet man doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get the dishes clean! Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m talking about lipstick on glasses, oil on pans and food left on plates. He doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use soap or hot water, either. I rewash everything the next morning after he leaves for work. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m afraid to say anything because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m happy Herb makes the effort, and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to ruin the nice gesture.

Should I keep this up, or tell him my concerns and ask him to try harder? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; In Love With The Dishwasher, Austin, Texas Dear In Love: Your sweet husband may have poor eyesight â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so start Dear pointing out what heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Abby missing on the dishes. â&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  Then explain that, in the interest of hygiene, you would be more comfortable if, instead of just rinsing the dishes, he would place them in the dishwasher so you can be sure they are sterile the next time you use them. P.S. Because you are having to wash the dishes twice, you may find that by using the dishwasher you will be using less water!


Dear Abby: Do you think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s appropriate to laugh when someone inadvertently falls â&#x20AC;&#x201C; especially if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unclear whether the individual is hurt? I have never found it amusing to see someone fall. Instead, I feel concern. Some of my friends think that laughing is not only the appropriate response, but â&#x20AC;&#x153;necessaryâ&#x20AC;? to help ease the embarrassment of the individual who has fallen. Whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Compassionate Witness in Seattle Dear Compassionate: You are.

Pork â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the other cat food D

ear Dr. Fox: Our cat craves pork. Is there a reason there are no pork cat foods? Is it OK to give her table scraps? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; D.K., Bethesda, Md.

Dear D.K.: Pork â&#x20AC;&#x201C; unsalted, unprocessed and well cooked â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is a good source of protein for cats. Pork from free-range pigs, including the fat, is far more nutritious than the flesh from corn-fed pigs from cruel factory farms. It should be well cooked because of the risk of trichinella â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a muscle parasite. Cats fare better on lightly cooked or raw, red meats. Pork fat is used in many manufactured pet foods, but not always listed as such. Pork-meat trimmings and various pig-organ parts that do not finish up in pork sausages are probably included under the generic pet-food-industry label of â&#x20AC;&#x153;meat byproductsâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;meat meal.â&#x20AC;? These can also include road kills and, until recently, recycled remains of euthanized cats and dogs. Giving a few nutritious, high-protein leftovers from oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s table is fine for cats, but all things in moderation. Cats can be manipulative and train their owners to feed them only what they want, such as just tuna or ground beef, which could have serious health consequences. Dear Dr. Fox: This is in response to the letter about the 3-yearold beagle in Arlington, Texas, who is allowed to chase rabbits for exercise and entertainment. I work in a wildlife rehabilitation clinic and see so much suffering of these defenseless, harmless creatures at the mouths and claws of dogs and cats. Rabbits can literally die of fright or run in front of a car while trying to escape this senseless harassment. We humans need to respect the lives of all animals. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; P.G., Naples, Fla. Dear P.G.: I embrace your sentiment and respect your concern. Recently, I politely chastised an acquaintance when he told how much his dog had just enjoyed chasing ducks and geese resting on the edge of a nearby lake. It was midwinter, and wintering wildlife, including deer and rabbits, cannot afford to expend energy as a source of canine

entertainment. The extreme shortage of food and the metabolic ANIMAL demands of winter DOCTOR (and later demands Dr. Michael of pregFox nancy and â&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  care of offspring) indicate that dogs should not be allowed to routinely harass wildlife. Occasionally chasing (without physically harming) a rabbit flushed out during an off-leash outing could be bad for dogs, many of whom cripple themselves by tearing their cruciate ligaments or by impaling themselves on broken branches. This can cost their uninformed owners thousands of dollars in veterinary treatment. Dear Dr. Fox: We have a neutered, 7-year-old, male American Eskimo dog. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had him since he was an 8-week-old pup. Behaviorally, he is a challenging dog. He barks excessively for food when we have guests or at any sound outside. He also guards excessively â&#x20AC;&#x201C; his food bowl, toys, sleeping space â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and he growls aggressively if anyone walks past him. He has never bitten anyone, though. He can be affectionate and greets our family warmly when we come home. But we are looking for guidance in curbing the barking and growling. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve tried obedience training more than once, to no real effect. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; R.G., Minneapolis, Minn. Dear R.G.: Your dog is barking and growling in order to get attention and to assert/insert his presence. This behaviormodification method may work: Try reward training â&#x20AC;&#x201C; when he barks or growls, say â&#x20AC;&#x153;Quiet,â&#x20AC;? praise him, and put him in the sit-stay position; then reward intermittently with a treat. If he cannot contain himself, say â&#x20AC;&#x153;Go awayâ&#x20AC;? and point to the room to which you will send him for a 10- to 15-minute timeout. I call this â&#x20AC;&#x153;shunning,â&#x20AC;? and most pack-oriented dogs hate it and soon shape up. SEND YOUR QUESTIONS to Dr. Michael Fox, c/o The High Point Enterprise, P.O. Box 1009, High Point, NC 27261. Visit Dr. Foxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Web site at


Good father will guide daughter on right path Q

uestion: Is there a way I as a father can influence my daughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attitude toward boys? If she chooses to marry, she will need to understand men and know how to relate to them. Is that something I should be thinking about? Dr. Dobson: You bet it is. Long before a girl finds her first real boyfriend or falls in love, her attitude toward men has been shaped quietly by her father. Why? Because the father-daughter relationship sets the stage for all future romantic involvements. If a young womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father rejects her, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll spend her life trying to find a man who can meet the needs he never fulfilled in her heart. If heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s warm and nurturing, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll look for a lover to equal him. If he thinks sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beautiful and feminine, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be inclined to see herself that way. But, if he rejects her as unattractive and uninteresting, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s likely to carry self-image problems into her adult years. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also true that a womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relationship with her husband is significantly influenced by the way she perceived her fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s authority. If he was overbearing or capricious during her earlier years, she may precipitate power struggles with her husband throughout married life. But, if Dad blended love and discipline in a way that conveyed strength, she may be more comfortable with a

give-and-take marriage characterized by mutual respect. So much of what goes into marriage starts with the brideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why it behooves those of us with daughters to give our best effort to raising them properly. You are right to be thinking about that vital relationship.

Question: As a father, what should I be trying to accomplish with my son in these teen years? Dr. Dobson: Someone has said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Link a boy to the right man and he seldom goes wrong.â&#x20AC;? I believe that is true. If a dad and his son can develop hobbies together or other common interests, the rebellious years can pass in relative tranquility. What they experience may be remembered for a lifetime. I recall a song, written by Dan Fogelberg, which told about a man who shared his love of music with his elderly father. It is called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Leader of the Band,â&#x20AC;? and its message touches something deep within me. The son talks of a father who â&#x20AC;&#x153;earned his love through discipline, a thundering, velvet hand.â&#x20AC;? The fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;song is in my soul.â&#x20AC;? The son himself has become

a â&#x20AC;&#x153;living legacy to the leader of the band.â&#x20AC;? Canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you see this man going to visit his aged father today, with a lifetime of love passing between them? That must have been what God had in mind when he gave dads to boys. Let me address your question directly: What common ground are you cultivating with your impressionable son? Some fathers build or repair cars with them; some construct small models or make things in a woodshop. My dad and I hunted and fished together. There is no way to describe what those days meant to me as we entered the woods in the early hours of the morning. How could I get angry at this man who took time to be with me? We had wonderful talks while coming home from a day of laughter and fun in the country. I tried to maintain that kind of contact with my son. Opportunities to communicate openly and build the father-son relationship have to be created. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a goal thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth whatever it takes to achieve. DR.

Initial stages of new Egypt museum completed CAIRO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Egyptâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s massive new museum for its famous antiquities now has a power plant, a fire station and its own conservation center, and over the next two years it will become home to some 100,000 artifacts, officials said Monday. A partial opening for the 120-acre museum complex, which will house King Tutankhamunâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s famed mummy and golden burial effects and a replica of his tomb, is set for the fall of 2012. Plans for the museum, which will replace the century-old building visited by millions annually in Cairoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heaving downtown, were first conceived in 2002 and it will display more than twice as many artifacts as its predecessor. The museum will eventually house 100,000 artifacts, said Mohammed Ghoneim, the projectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s technical consultant said. Tens of thousands of artifacts are currently locked away unseen in the old museum due to lack of space to display them. Egyptâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first lady Suzanne Mubarak on Monday inaugurated the first two

phases of the $600 million Grand Museum of Egypt, which is located at the foot of the Giza pyramids. The main achievement so far is the construction of the new conservation center to restore damaged antiquities and already 122 conservators are restoring and preparing 6,800 artifacts that will one day be showcased in the Grand Museum. A documentation unit is also working to create a computerized database for all the artifacts. The conservation center is â&#x20AC;&#x153;designed to be the largest such center in the world, in terms of the ser-

vices it offers and the number of laboratories,â&#x20AC;? Ghoneim said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is built to restore Egyptian antiquities but also to be a regional conservation center.â&#x20AC;? Established with Japa-

nese technical assistance, the center includes 12 laboratories for restoring, scanning and studying mummies as well as artifacts made from pottery, wood, textiles and glass.

An Arctic tern tucks its legs as it flies over Potter Marsh in Anchorage, Alaska. Watching the terns is a perfect side trip for someone with a car and a day in Alaska’s largest city.

Terns draw crowds in Anchorage BY DAN JOLING ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER


NCHORAGE, Alaska – Thousands of people drive south from Anchorage to see mountains, eagles and glaciers on the Kenai Peninsula. Most blow by a vista where they could be seeing aerial acrobats. Just 10 miles from downtown Anchorage is Potter Marsh, part of the Anchorage Coastal Wildlife Refuge. And at the south end, a mile or so from the elevated boardwalk that draws most visitors, is a modest pullout that gives worldclass views of a few dozen Arctic terns nesting in marsh grasses. They’re fresh in from Antarctica, southern Africa, southern Australia or New Zealand, an 11,000-mile trip, or if they take a meandering route as suggested by recent research out of Greenland terns flying over the Atlantic, nearly double that distance. Watching the terns is a perfect side trip for



POTTER MARSH: Arctic terns summer nesting site. From Fifth Avenue in downtown Anchorage, drive south on Gambell Street, which becomes the Seward Highway. Ten miles from downtown, about a mile south of the DeArmoun Road overpass, is the turnoff on the left for the Potter Marsh boardwalk. A mile south of boardwalk access is a gravel turnout where Arctic tern nests may be viewed. someone with a car and a day in Alaska’s largest city. “A lot of local people photograph them down there,” said Joe Meehan, lands and refuge program coordinator for the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. “A lot of visitors driving by see the pullout, see people there. So they pull in. But I think it’s in a lot

of guide books, too, for people to see terns in the Anchorage area.” Arctic terns experience two summers per year and more daylight than any other creature. They don’t fly nonstop, but they’re champions of the bird world for length of migration. They’re handsome birds – slender with long, gray, V-shaped wings and long, deeply forked tails, a white neck, black cap and blood-red beak, legs and feet – but most people admire them for their athleticism. “It’s hard to take an ungraceful picture of a tern,” said Warren Suddock. “I’ve spent the last couple of weeks actually trying to get some. It’s hard to do.” The retired Anchorage police officer lives above the marsh and makes an almost daily morning trip to town to buy himself coffee and his wife a mocha. He inevitably turns into the pullout to take pictures of grebes and terns. “The mocha sits here

Greece’s tourism industry under threat ATHENS, Greece (AP) – An angry tourist, sun hat on head and camera dangling from neck, stood in the middle of the open-top double-decker tour bus, hands outstretched in a “thumbs down” sign. About two dozen striking Greeks were blocking a main avenue in front of parliament, forcing the driver to maneuver awkwardly and deprive visitors of their drive-by photos. It’s scenes such as these – road closures, strikes shutting down archaeological sites, the blockading of the main port of Piraeus turning away thousands of cruise passengers – that have hor-

rified people in Greece’s vital tourism industry as the country struggles to emerge from a vicious debt crisis that brought it to the brink of bankruptcy. “It’s like we’re poking out our own eyes. These things get around, they create a bad image,” said Anna Anifanti, director of the Hellenic Association of Travel and Tourist Agencies, or HATTA. Greek workers have responded to governmentimposed austerity measures that cut salaries and pensions with repeated strikes and sometimes violent demonstrations. With the summer season barely under way, images

of flaming buildings and riots in Athens – where three people died trapped in a burning bank in May – took an early toll, leading to the cancellation of about 20,000 overnight hotel stays in the capital and nearby resorts. Tourism industry experts say they are currently seeing a drop of about 10-12 percent in bookings compared to 2009, which was itself a poor year. With tourism accounting for about 15.5 percent of gross domestic product, Greece can ill afford to see a prolonged downturn in an industry that provides about one in every five jobs.

and gets cold while I shoot for 30 or 40 minutes. Then I take the mocha home,” he said. He finds terns mesmerizing. “They’re just build perfectly for what they do,” Suddock said. “Just amazing. They dive, they soar, they hover.” Some call them “sea swallows.” They can fly over prey with their bills pointed down at right angles to the water. When Suddock gets his photos home, he sometimes can’t believe the angles of their wings. “Physically a bird can’t do that,” he said. Professional wildlife photographer Didier Lindsey admires how Arctic terns hunt for fish. “They’re incredible hunters. They probably hit 50 percent of the time, I would imagine. It’s just amazing. You can see them hit the water. A lot of times, as soon as they hit the water, they’ve got that stickleback or whatever they’re after. “They’re a challenge

for photography, because they move so fast,” he said. “On a windy day it’s ballet and aerials. They’re all over the place.” They’re also territorial. When a bald eagle flies high over the marsh, terns and the gulls go airborne in a cloud of avian alarm. If the eagle flies low, terns go into attack mode. Lindsey recalls seeing a tern chase an eagle the length of the marsh, pecking at its head like a machine gun. “I’ve seen them absolutely wear out an eagle flying overhead. They are fearless. They’ve bounced off my head. I’ve seen them go after moose that have wan-

dered into the wrong place.” The head bouncing occurred when Lindsey crossed the highway to take photographs of birds in Turnagain Arm. “I didn’t realize one of them had a nest over there,” he said. “It bounced right off my head. It got me out of there. I’m like, ‘Sorry!’ Over here they seem to be pretty cool. Over there it was a different story.” Terns arrive in early May and stay until August. In tern courtship, a male carries small fish in his bill, passing low over a female on the ground. If she’s interested, she’ll join him in a high, fluttering climb and flight, according to state wildlife officials.

False gout patient experiences true pain D

Gout provokes joint pain and swelling when uric acid from the blood infiltrates joints. Pseudogout (false gout) does the same, but it involves a different material â&#x20AC;&#x201C; calcium pyrophosphate. Crystals of calcium pyrophosphate form in the joint and kick up the same kind of problems that uric acid crystals do. An attack of pseudogout builds in intensity over 12 to 36 hours. The pain, swelling and redness last for days to a few weeks. Knees, wrists and ankles are pseudogoutâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favorite joints to attack. Osteoarthritis of a joint increases that jointâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chances of falling victim to pseudogout. An overactive parathyroid gland (the gland that regulates blood calcium level), a sluggish thyroid gland and hemochromatosis â&#x20AC;&#x201C; an inherited illness in which excessive amounts of iron are absorbed â&#x20AC;&#x201C; also predispose people to developing pseudogout. Like gout, pseudogout can run a course of recurring attacks. The diagnosis is confirmed by withdrawing fluid from a swollen joint and examining it with a microscope. Calcium pyrophosphate crystals are seen. There are treatments. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (Motrin, Aleve, Advil, Indocin and many others) control most attacks. If they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, colchicine â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a gout medicine â&#x20AC;&#x201C; can gain the upper hand. If oral medicines fail, injecting the joint with cortisone

brings rapid relief. Prevention treatments are less effective. However, probenecid sometimes works, as does the mineral

magnesium. Dear Dr. Donohue: I have a question that I have not seen answered in your column. A friend insists on using mothballs everywhere â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in corners, under furniture, under the sofa cushions, in closets, in every room. She and her two dogs inhale mothball fumes constantly. She claims it keeps â&#x20AC;&#x153;bugsâ&#x20AC;? at bay. I say she is compromising her health. She has said that she will abide by your advice. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; C.S. I say: Get rid of the mothballs, posthaste. Mothballs contain either naphthalene or paradichlorobenzene. Both, if inhaled in sufficient quantities, can be toxic. If by â&#x20AC;&#x153;bugsâ&#x20AC;? your friend means germs, mothballs have no germrepellent effect. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exposing herself and her dogs to a high level of chemicals that can endanger their health. She has to rid her house of mothballs and air it out. It should be done soon.

In her nearly empty restaurant in Orange Beach, Ala., owner Regina Shipp listens to President Barack Obama’s address concerning the oil spill on Tuesday. Shipp has filed claims with BP totaling over $33,000.

More than talk Gulf residents express caution about Obama, oil spill BY JAY REEVES ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER

ORANGE BEACH, Ala. — Restaurant owner Regina Shipp was near desperation before President Barack Obama’s address on the Gulf oil crisis. The tourists are gone, empty tables fill her dockside dining room and her business has lost $57,000 after just a few weeks of crude and tar balls smearing the coast. Afterward, she sounded more hopeful, but not much. At this point, it’s going to take much more than an Oval Office talk to make life better on the oilstained coast. “He said he’s going to make BP pay. Can he? Can he?” said Shipp, standing amid a sea of empty tables at Shipp’s Harbour Grill, which she owns with her husband, chef Matt Shipp. Obama did vow to “make BP pay” and accused the oil giant of “recklessness” in his first address to the nation from the Oval Office Tuesday night, eight weeks to the day after the catastrophic oil spill began destroying the Gulf Coast way of life. It followed a two-day trip to the Gulf Coast where he met with officials and residents about the oil gushing from the broken wellhead, millions of gallons a day.

Their lives turned upside down by the nation’s worst oil spill, Gulf Coast residents paused to watch the speech with a mix of fear and anger over both the crude spewing into the ocean and a response that seems almost comical at times. Sipping a glass of wine at his home in Empire, La., Mitch Jurisich decided to watch Obama’s address after wavering on whether to even tune in. The third-generation oyster fisherman has been out of work since the Louisiana oyster beds were shut down two weeks ago. Afterward, Jurisich said he fears a moratorium on offshore drilling would kill what’s left of the economy in coastal Louisiana. And the inaction Obama said he wouldn’t tolerate isn’t really the problem, he said. “There’s a lot of action but it’s confusion and chaos, and that’s starting to overtake the efforts I see to stop this spill,” said Jurisich, 47. But, Jurisich said, Obama fooled him. “’Cause he didn’t give the same old speech. I like what he said about putting aside the money. But however much it is it won’t be enough,” he said. “They should freeze all BP’s assets, but it still might not be enough.” At Shaggy’s restaurant and bar on the docks in Pass Christian, Miss., heads immediately turned toward the five televisions when the president began speaking. Glasses stopped clinking, and food sat on plates as customers watched and listed intently — for about 10 minutes. Keath Ladner said the speech gave him some hope, even though his


A blue heron stands in the surf searching for food as oil cleanup crews make their morning patrol along the beach in Gulf Shores, Ala., Wednesday. New waves of oil have not come ashore and cleanup work continues, leaving Alabama’s beaches in much better condition than just a few days earlier. seafood processing business has shut down since the April 20 rig explosion killed 11 people 50 miles off the Louisiana coast and triggered what Obama called the worst environmental disaster in U.S. history. Ladner just prays things begin to change. “Words are only words. Action means everything,” said the 48-yearold who owns Gulf Shores Sea Products in Lakeshore, Miss. “Right now, I believe we need a little bit more government oversight to make sure things

are handled properly.” John and Margaret Ehrenreich couldn’t depend any more on a clean Gulf Coast that will attract tourists to Pensacola Beach, Fla. They have a miniature golf course, a parasailing business, a go-cart track and personal watercraft rentals as part of their business, Bonifay Watersports. The couple largely agreed with the Obama’s speech, but said they still weren’t encouraged about the future of their business. And they’re not re-


lying on Obama or BP for that. “We know that at the highest levels they understand our plight, but we are going to have to get through this on our own. It’s not up to him, it’s up to us to keep going,” John Ehrenreich said. The couple has survived major hurricanes and economic slumps, but they don’t know how they will weather the oil spill. “I’m not going to say we are going to get through, but we will take it one day at a time and do whatever we can,” said John Ehrenreich, 68 who immigrated to the U.S. from the former Yugoslavia at age 15 and built his beach business after discovering the town while serving in the Navy. Back at Regina Shipp’s restaurant, the food is gourmet-quality yet affordable — the view over Perdido Bay, beautiful. Yet the oil spill has gutted the couple’s business so badly they’re worried about caring for their two young daughters if conditions don’t improve quickly. They’ve filed a $33,000 claim with BP, yet they’ve only gotten $5,000. Shipp, 40, hopes Obama’s tough talk about BP making pay for the damage wasn’t just words, but she has her doubts. “BP has killed our environment, killed our economy and destroyed our way of life, and they get to say who they’re going to pay?” she said. Associated Press writers Holbrook Mohr in Empire, La.; Brian Skoloff in Pass Christian, Miss.; and Melissa Nelson in Pensacola, Fla., contributed to this story.

Residents along the Louisiana coast have long seen wetlands created by the fertile Mississippi River turn into open water. On Tuesday, they received welcoming news: President Barack Obama pledged to restore the Gulf Coast’s degraded coastline. Though details were vague, the restoration has multibillion-dollar implications for the region’s culture and economy and could preserve wildlife endangered by the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Coastal advocates have long said the human fabric and economic future of the Gulf Coast are at risk unless more aggressive steps are taken to inject freshwater sediment into Louisiana’s estuaries. About 2,300 square miles of marshland have been lost from the state’s coastline since the 1930s.

Activity at the site of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico off the Louisiana coast as viewed from a Coast Guard plane June 9. A reader-submitted question about considering explosives as an option to seal the Gulf oil spill is being answered as part of an Associated Press Q&A column called “Ask AP.”

Questions concern stopping oil leak, tennis pairings THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

It sounds simple enough as an approach to the Gulf oil disaster: Why not just detonate explosives at the source of the leak to seal it off and halt the gusher? That’s one of the questions answered 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. I am used to the way seeding is done for fencing or the NCAA basketball tournament. However, in tennis, players always seem to be facing a seed they shouldn’t be playing at a given point in a tournament. How do tennis tournaments seed? Greg Spahr Wilmington, N.C. A. Unlike in the NCAA basketball tournament, not all entrants are seeded at all in a tennis grand slam event. Only the top 32 players receive seeds, and everybody else is randomly drawn into the bracket. That can result in some surprisingly good first-round

matches. Even among the seeded players, the bracket is not automatically set up so the No. 1 player would eventually play No. 32, for instance. Players are randomly drawn within several groups: seeds 17 through 32, seeds 9 through 16, seeds 5 through 8, seeds 3 through 4, seeds 1 and 2. That means, for example, the No. 1 seed could potentially face either the No. 3 or 4 in the semifinals, and the No. 5 or 8 in the quarters. Rachel Cohen Associated Press Writer, New York Q. Why haven’t explosives (non-nuclear) been considered as an option to seal the Gulf oil spill? Theo Noell Boston A. Tony Wood, director of the National Spill Control School at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, said one big problem with setting off an explosion could be the huge amounts of methane coming out of the well. Methane freezes into a slushy substance called methane hydrate at the depth and temperatures it encounters at the well. But heat, as from an explosion, could turn it back into a gas, Wood said, and that could cause a problem in three ways. For one thing, the gas could form a bubble that grows to become immense as it rises to

the surface, possibly big enough to capsize ships. Also, the gas could asphyxiate people at the suface. And because methane is flammable, it could cause an explosion at the surface, he said. Malcolm Ritter AP Science Writer New York Q. Is there any new info on unemployment extensions? Connie Crass Smyrna, Tenn. A. There are efforts in Congress to pass legislation that would continue extended jobless benefits through the end of November. The Senate isn’t expected to vote on the continuation until next week. But first, let’s back up. As the economy struggled through the worst recession since the Great Depression, Congress added a total of up to 73 extra weeks of unemployment benefits on top of the 26 weeks customarily provided by states. That’s the longest period of unemployment benefits since the program began in the 1930s. But the extended program doesn’t last forever. In fact, it expired June 2. That means that the nearly 10 million people currently receiving jobless benefits will start to gradually run out of benefits over the next six months or so, unless the extra benefits are restored. The Labor Department estimates 325,000 people will lose benefits by the end of this week. Those benefits can be restored if legislation extending the program is passed. Christopher S.

JACKSONVILLE – It may contain funny anecdotes of life in transit and a few of the obligatory photos of naps in airports, but Afghanidan is not your typical travel blog. Nor is its writer the average backpack trekker. Rather, the Blogspot site is a personal project by Marine Maj. Dan Huvane, who maintains the blog while holding down a day job as senior mentor for Public Affairs at the Ministry of Defense in Afghanistan. Huvane hails from Colorado, but after more than a decade of deploying from Camp Lejeune, three years of residence in Emerald Isle and a stint with MarSOC

in Sneads Ferry in 2008, he said he calls the Jacksonville region his “home away from home.” In late May, Huvane deployed from Camp Lejeune to Afghanistan. When he started his travel blog on his first deployment to Afghanistan, Huvane said his ambitions were small. “I started up the AfghaniDan blog as a way for my family and friends to follow what I was doing, and to see this far-off place through my eyes, as well as I could capture it,” he said. “Before I knew it, the blog had been circulated so much that ranked it as one of the most widely-viewed military blogs. I had no idea there was such a following.” Today, the blog ranks No. 58 among the nearly 3,000 indexed military blogs worldwide.


SHELBY – “On rainy days we have no place to go – on hot days, no place to go,” said Charles Moore. Moore has been homeless, on and off, for about 16 years. In 2008 he and some others were living in a tent near a railroad in

Shelby. He came to one of the organizational meetings for the Inter-faith Alliance and asked for help. When he found out the Salvation Army was building a mini-shelter with donated materials, he and some other homeless men pitched in to help. “At least it’s some place to go – some kind of shelter,” he said. “At least here we can police

ourselves and if anybody starts any trouble, the Salvation Army is here to help.” The women’s shelter is open during the day, but homeless men must leave the men’s shelter in the daytime. On days when the temperature reaches 90-plus degrees, they try to find shady places. Many times they are asked to move along.

“My husband, Ken, and I see the homeless people on the street and we wonder where are they going and how are they taking care of themselves,” said Sgt. Ann Bennett of the Shelby-Rutherford County Salvation Army. “My husband and I have a passion for this because my brother-in-law was homeless for awhile,” she said.

MUSICAL INMATES Philippine prison orchestra gives 1st public concert


ANILA, Philippines (AP) – The sound of Broadway medleys and love songs echoed inside the walls of the Philippines’ maximum security penitentiary last week when convicts, many of them serving life sentences for murder and other major crimes, gave their first public concert. The 100-member Bureau of Corrections Grand Orchestra and Chorale at the New Bilibid Prison in Manila played Broadway pieces and love songs in the local Tagalog language to prison officials, relatives and media. A soloist, backed by the orchestra, also sang “New York, New York” as women inmates in top hats and coattails danced. Prison officials and organizers said the project was part of efforts to showcase musical talents of some of the inmates and help prepare them for release. The performance was reminiscent of an Internet smash hit several years ago, when the central Cebu provincial prison warden organized hundreds of inmates to dance to Michael Jackson’s songs. Their performances have received millions of hits on YouTube. Saxophone player Rey Matias, a 45-year-old inmate serving a life sentence for murder,


Filipino inmates watch during the first public performance of the Bureau of Corrections Orchestra and Chorale inside the social hall of the New Bilibid Prison maximum security compound in suburban Muntinlupa, south of Manila, Philippines. said his days are now filled with band practice, a welcome change from the boredom of loitering around the maximum security compound, staring into space and pondering his fate. “When the band was put up, it put color and perked up our days,” he said. “Even a prisoner can be proud of something.” “I’m so happy because my heart is in music and even while detained, I can do what I want,” said Manuel Esguerra

Jr., 58. The former military band member and murder convict is serving a life term. Bureau of Corrections Director Oscar Calderon said through music they hope to reform the inmates and “remove their criminal minds, soften up their feelings.” Security in the prison was low-key during the performance, although police sharpshooters stood guard. Relatives and reporters could mingle and

talk freely with the inmates inside the hall. After the performance, the inmates, clutching their instruments, were led back to their cells. The group does not have all the elements of a modern orchestra, such as a full string section, but they have an impressive complement of brass and woodwind instruments. Warren Zingapan, an inmate who organized the performance, said it’s a good start.

He said that because music transcends barriers, the symphony and chorale members feel that even while they are physically detained, their music can go beyond the walls of the facility. “Just by that alone ... it is as if they are free,” said Zingapan, who topped the civil engineer board exam in 1996 but later was sentenced to life in prison for murder over a killing at a fraternity rumble.

Phil Collins among honorees at Songwriters Hall of Fame


In this publicity image released by HBO, an image of people holding up photos of Neda Agha Soltan is shown from the documentary “For Neda.” Soltan, 27, an Iranian music student, was gunned down during an anti-government protest in Tehran, Iran, on June 20, 2009.

HBO works to get film on dissident seen within Iran


EW YORK (AP) – HBO has aggressively sought to get its documentary on Iranian dissident Neda Agha Soltan seen by as many people as possible within Iran. Today marks the anniversary of her death during anti-government demonstrations. The film, “For Neda,” was shown online and through Voice of America in Iran even before its debut on U.S. television last week, an unusual step for a cable network that traditionally guards exclusivity of its material for its paying customers. The 27-year-old Iranian music student was shot in the heart last June 20 during a Tehran protest.

Fellow demonstrators recorded images of her dying on their cell phones, and she quickly became a symbol for the crushed movement to protest Iran’s questionable election results. “I didn’t want these brave people who came out on the streets and risked their lives so courageously to feel that the world had moved on and it’s been forgotten,” said Antony Thomas, who wrote and produced the documentary. The film shows several times the difficult-to-watch images of Soltan lying in the street, blood slowly streaming over her face and her eyes becoming vacant.

NEW YORK (AP) – Even though he has written songs that have become etched into pop culture, from “Against All Odds” to “In the Air Tonight,” Phil Collins insists he has no special formula for writing a hit. “It’s all a stroke of luck, it’s a complete accident,” he said in an interview last week. “I’ve never purposely crafted a song to be a hit my life.” But luck rarely strikes so often. On Thursday, the Songwriters Hall of Fame gave the former Genesis frontman its highest honor, the Johnny Mercer Award, during ceremonies in New York City. It’s the second major honor this year for the 59-year-old Collins; in March, Genesis was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Collins has already been inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, but getting this special honor was such a shock, he didn’t quite believe it. When he got the e-mail,



he called his manager and asked if he would be presenting the award instead. “That’s something that I never thought I’d be qualified to get; I still don’t think I’m qualified to get,” he said. Collins joined a starstudded cast among the honorees. Taylor Swift received the Hal David Starlight Award for emerging songwriters, while inductees for the hall included David Foster, Earth, Wind & Fire, Leonard Cohen, Jesse Stone, Laura Nyro, Jackie DeShannon, Johnny Mandel, Matt Dennis, Bob Marley and Sunny Skylar. The hall also honored “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” written by Paul Simon, as it celebrates its 40th anniversary.

Drug abuse admissions increase among people 50 and up

Overtreating earliest cancers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but which ones? W

ASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; D.J. Soviero wanted the least treatment that would beat back her small, early-stage breast cancer, but her first doctor insisted she had only one option: tumor removal followed by radiation and chemotherapy. Then she found a novel program at the University of California, San Francisco, that gave her an unbiased evaluation of the pros and cons of all treatment options. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I realized that I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to use a sledgehammer. It was my choice,â&#x20AC;? said Soviero, of San Francisco, who went with the lumpectomy and radiation, but refused the chemo. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an unthinkable notion for a generation raised on the message that early cancer detec-

tion saves lives, but specialists say more tumors actually are being found too early. That is raising uncomfortable questions about how aggressively to treat early growths â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in some cases, even how aggressively to test â&#x20AC;&#x201C; along with a push for more of the informed-choice programs such as the one Soviero used. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The message has been, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Early detection, early detection, early detection.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true for some things but not all things,â&#x20AC;? said Dr. Laura Esserman, a breast cancer specialist at UCSF. She helped lead a study, reported last week, that found mammography is increasing diagnoses of tumors deemed genetically very low risk. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just all about finding any cancer. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about being more dis-

criminating when you do find it,â&#x20AC;? she added. Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cancer screenings can unearth tumors that scientists say never would have threatened the personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life. The problem is there arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t surefire ways to tell in advance which tumors wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be dangerous â&#x20AC;&#x201C; just some clues that doctors use in prescribing treatment. Work is under way to better predict that, and even the staunchest supporters of screening call overdiagnosis a problem that needs tackling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really at a tipping point right now, where we have a tradeoff between the benefits of finding cancer early and the harms that are caused,â&#x20AC;? said Dr. Len Lichtenfeld of the American Cancer Society. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We treat more patients than

we know will benefit. ... We just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know who they are.â&#x20AC;? Nowhere is the disconnect more obvious than with prostate cancer screening. Most men over 50 have had a PSA blood test to check for it even though major medical groups donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t recommend routine PSAs, worried they may do more harm than good for the average man. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the evidence? A study of 76,000 U.S. men, published last year, concluded annual PSAs didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t save lives.

drugs for the first time â&#x20AC;&#x201C; notably cocaine users â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the study found that three-quarters of older Americans admitted for treatment had started using drugs before age 25. According to the report, the share of people treated for substance abuse who were 50 and over: â&#x20AC;˘ More than doubled, from 7.2 percent to 16.0 percent, for heroin. â&#x20AC;˘ For cocaine abuse, nearly quadrupled from 2.9 percent to 11.4 percent. More than a quarter of these had begun use of the drug within the last five years. â&#x20AC;˘ Rose from 0.7 percent to 3.5 percent for prescription drug abuse. â&#x20AC;˘ For marijuana abuse, increased from 0.6 percent to 2.9 percent The agency said that during the same period admissions primarily related to alcohol abuse decreased from 84.6 percent in 1992 to 59.9 percent in 2008.

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drug abusers are going gray. The proportion of people admitted to treatment for drug abuse who are aged 50 or over nearly doubled between 1992 and 2008, a new government study says. Alcohol is still the leading cause of admissions in this age group, but sharp increases were noted in those needing treatment for heroin, cocaine and marijuana, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration reports Wednesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These findings show the changing scope of substance abuse problems in America,â&#x20AC;? agency administrator Pamela S.
