CHARITABLE GIVING Needs up, donations down during summer for non-profits BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER


At the Open Door Shelter, Kim Murvin processes clients’ requests for aid in paying their utility bills every month.

HIGH POINT – The summer sun is bearing down especially hard on nonprofits that provide utility assistance to those in need. While multiple heat waves already have swept through the Triad, the need to stay cool and crank up the air conditioning can be costly. In strained economic conditions, sometimes it can be too costly. “Our biggest issue is people

coming in due to increases in their electric bill,” said Anjani Webb, marketing coordinator for The Salvation Army of High Point. “That’s our greatest need right now.” Webb said The Salvation Army paid out $3,357 in June to low-income families for utility assistance, up from $3,160 last year. From June to August last year, the organization dedicated $5,960 to utility assistance. While the Triad is expected to see some relief from the heat today, Webb said the

heat waves the area already has experienced suggests that number may be higher this year. Utility assistance also is a large demand for nonprofits like The Salvation Army and Open Door Ministries in High Point in the winter when temperatures drop. Balances left over from winter months can add more stress to the summer months, said Kimberly Murvin, an emergency assis-

Fire cause eludes officials

LUNCH IS SERVED: Meal program expands to local high school. 1B


HIGH POINT – Officials have closed their investigation into a fatal house fire that occurred in the city last month after they could not determine the cause of the blaze. High Point Fire Department investigators ruled the cause of the June 28 fire at 3309 Mildred Ave. as undetermined. The home’s sole occupant, 85year-old Evelyn Smoot McKeel, was found dead in a bathroom on the left side of the heavily damaged house. “(Investigators are) certain it started on that left side of the house, but they could not determine a specific point of origin and they could not determine an exact cause,” said Capt. Denita Lynch of the fire department. “It was just so severely damaged on that side of the house, a lot of the stuff was burned away or roofing had fallen in and that kind of thing.” From the beginning, investigators saw no evidence indicating possible foul play such as arson, and Lynch said again Thursday that there didn’t appear to be anything suspicious about the blaze. McKeel lived alone in the small, one-story house off Dillon Road. A neighbor who saw smoke and flames coming from the residence called the fire in about 3:30 a.m. Responding firefighters found the house fully involved with flames coming through the roof. An autopsy was performed, but Lynch said she had not heard whether a cause of death had been determined. McKeel’s death was the first fire fatality in the city since September 2007. The cause of another, unrelated house fire in the city remained under investigation Thursday. Lynch said investigators had not determined what sparked a blaze that heavily damaged 508 Warbler Court on Monday night. That fire, which caused an estimated $46,000 in damages, broke out in the den of the house while the woman and two children who live there were away. No injuries were reported. | 888-3531

New law bans real estate transfer royalty fees BY PAUL B. JOHNSON ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

TRIAD – North Carolina has joined a select group of states that prohibit a practice of allowing a transfer fee to be paid to an original property owner when a piece of real estate is sold multiple times during a period of years. Gov. Beverly Perdue earlier this month signed Senate Bill 35, an act that bans what’s known as transfer fee covenants that can follow the title of a property for decades. North Carolina has become the 15th state to prohibit the practice, according to the Coalition to Stop Wall Street Home Resale Fees, the main national group campaigning against the practice. The fees come about by adding language to home purchase contracts requiring that a percentage of the sales price be paid to the original owner of

real estate each time the property is sold, typically over a period of 99 years, the coalition reports. “These corpoDorsett rate owners are then attempting to securitize the right to collect these fees and sell them to enrich Wall Street investors. Meanwhile, the fees steal equity from homes, and force homeowners to pay a large fee when selling their property,” the coalition argues. The transfer fee covenants haven’t become a standard practice, said Andrew Lewis, a spokesman for the Washington, D.C.-based coalition. But opponents of the fees say they want to halt the practice before it becomes more commonplace, Lewis said. Perdue signed the legislation after it was passed by the N.C.


General Assembly, which is wrapping up the 2010 session this week at the State Legislative Building in Raleigh. “I just felt like it was something that would be good public policy, that you shouldn’t have to pay that fee forever. Every time you transfer, if you’ve got to pay another fee, that does add to what a person is going to pay,” said Sen. Katie Dorsett, D-Guilford. A spokesman for a Raleighbased advocacy group praises the enactment of the bill to ban transfer fee covenants. “It’s a deceitful practice, and one that’s not been common in the real estate markets in the United States historically. It hurts consumers and real estate values,” said Alfred Ripley, counsel for housing and consumer affairs for the N.C. Justice Center. | 888-3528

High Point rabies case reported ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

HIGH POINT – A fox found on Ladford Lane tested positive for the rabies virus this week, Guilford County health officials reported. The fox had contact with one human. The case is the 10th case of animal rabies in Guilford County this year, and at least the second in High Point. North Carolina consistently ranks among the top five states in the nation for reported cases of rabies. There have been nearly 450 positive rabies tests among wild and domestic animals annually since 2000, according to the N.C. Veterinary

Medical Association. State law requires rabies vaccinations for all domestic animals 4 months old and older and that their vaccinations are kept current. This law applies even if pets are exclusively kept indoors. Unvaccinated pets exposed to a rabid animal must be euthanized or confined for six months in a veterinarian’s facility at the owner’s expense. Other tips to protect your family and pets include: • Do not try to separate fighting animals. • Avoid strange and sick animals. • Leave animals alone when they are eating.


The county health department is sponsoring a series of $5 rabies vaccination clinics: • Aug. 28: 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Fire District No. 28 station, N.C. 61 north, Gibsonville. • Oct. 9: 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Pleasant Garden Town Hall, 4920 Alliance Church Road, Pleasant Garden. The vaccine is valid for one year.

as one setting rules so motorists in urban areas can find their cars more easily after they’re towed. Legislators also gave final approval to another measure sought by Perdue, requiring more state monitoring of the way local Alcohol Beverage Control boards run their liquor stores. The bill would also subject board members to a gift ban and conflict-of-interest rules. Legislative leaders wanted to finish for the year by Friday, but they probably will have to stay until early Saturday to meet parliamentary requirements for some measures, said

• Keep pets on a leash when out in public. • Do not approach, play with or try to rescue wild animals of any kind. • Supervise your pets

when outdoors to avoid contact with wild animals. • Do not feed your pets outdoors. Leftover food will attract wild animals.

House Speaker Joe Hackney, D-Orange. A couple of those bills would expand or extend tax breaks to a host of industries, from moviemakers and digital media companies to computer data centers. However, Senate leader Marc Basnight, D-Dare, said he wanted to leave Friday. “I see no reason why that should not occur,” Basnight told Senate colleagues Thursday evening. “If it doesn’t, let’s go home regardless.” Perdue has said the film industry will die in North Carolina without expanded tax credits to make it

more competitive. Sen. Clark Jenkins, D-Edgecombe, a Senate Finance Committee co-chairman, said the changes are needed to attract new jobs and retain current industries. “We’ve got some prospects sitting out there that will come if we give them what we say we’ll give them,” Jenkins said. The lawmakers’ largest hurdle before adjourning is a broad campaign finance, ethics and government reform measure. The House and Senate have approved different bills. Negotiators planned to work Thursday evening to try to reconcile them.


Zoo relieved over return of stolen penguin DUBLIN (AP) – Kelli the penguin’s back home in Dublin Zoo after pranksters snatched the bird and abandoned her on a city sidewalk. Dublin Zoo condemned Thursday’s theft as no joke, because the 10-year-old Humboldt penguin could have been in-

jured during her abduction or crushed by a vehicle. Zoo officials said police tracked down Kelli using a signal from a microchip planted on the bird. She got the medical all-clear and was returned to her penguin partner, Mick. Police said the thieves climbed over a security

fence into an enclosure housing about a dozen Humboldt penguins and picked Kelli for reasons unknown. Dublin Zoo has been targeted by annoying pranks before. In 2008, its switchboard was overwhelmed by callers asking to speak to Rory Lyon, G. Raffe and Ana Conda.

TRIAD – A first-time challenger for High Point City Council has switched races for this year’s municipal election. Will Armfield originally filed last week to run in the Ward 6 race for City Council. On Thursday, he switched his candidacy to the atlarge race through the Guilford County Board of Elections. Armfield told The High Point Enterprise that he switched because he found his views were in line with Ward 6 candidate Jason Ewing, whom Armfield will support. Ewing is seeking the Ward 6 seat along with fellow challengers Jim Corey and Gerald Grubb. The Ward 6 winner will succeed Councilman John Faircloth, who is the Republican nominee for the 61st State House District and is unopposed in the general election. Armfield becomes the third challenger in the atlarge race, joining Britt Moore and Regina Chahal. Incumbent Latimer Alexander has filed, and

the other at-large councilmember – Mary Lou Blakeney – has indicated she will seek re-election. The candidate filing period for the High Point and Archdale municipal elections continues through

A short-circuiting heater is believed to have caused the fire, which spread quickly to mattresses and wooden bed frames. Eight other inmates were hospitalized with serious burns. The prison built for 60 houses 120 inmates – overcrowding is typical in Uruguay’s 28 prisons, Alvaro Garce, the parliamentary prison commissioner, told The Associated Press

Iraqi politics spark attacks BAGHDAD (AP) – Two days of attacks targeting hundreds of thousands of Shiite pilgrims in the Iraqi capital have killed almost 70 people, casting a spotlight Thursday on Iraq’s security challenges as militants focus on stoking sectarian tensions that have hindered efforts to form a new government. The violence linked to the anniversary of the death of a revered Shiite holy man bears the hallmark of Sunni insurgents in Iraq. While it

pales in comparison to attacks in previous years, the bloodshed comes at a crucial time for the country as officials jostle for power while struggling to ensure security and stability as U.S. forces begin their return home. Despite a force of some 200,000 Iraqi soldiers and police officers that fanned out along the pilgrims’ route in Baghdad to ensure security, insurgents were still able to pull off a string of attacks, including at least two by suicide bombers.

Columns provoke question.



Surely, this proves the media’s political bias Liberalism is a psychiatric disorder, and the media are thoroughly corrupted, dishonest shills for the DNC are two indisputable truths of today’s America. Of the countless examples one could choose to verify this, let’s use the death of U.S. Sen. Robert Byrd. Begin with the words of Bill Clinton, once mentored by another segregationist, William Fulbright. Clinton said, “Byrd once had a fleeting association with the KKK, and what does that mean? I tell you what it means. He was a country boy from hills and hollows of West Virginia. He was trying to get elected. And maybe he did something he shouldn’t have done.” He was trying to get elected and had to

join the Klan. OK, everyone does it! A “fleeting” association. What, two weeks? Nope, he eventually recruited 150 members. He was unanimously elected Exalted Cyclops. In 1945, Byrd said about integration in the military service, “I shall never submit to fight beneath the banner with a Negro by my side. Rather I should die a thousand times and see Old Glory trampled in dirt, never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels.” And the “race mongrels” have been dutifully voting for him ever since! Some 19 years later, at age 47, he voted against the Civil Rights Act of 1964. In recent years, on national television he spoke of “white n..... .” Yet he is revered as the “dean” of the Senate. And how did the media treat his death compared to how they

treated the death of Strom Thurmond, also a segregationist in his early years, but who never joined or recruited for the clan? The N.Y. Times, “Strom Thurmond, foe of integration, dies at 100.” And now from the Times, “Robert C. Byrd, a pillar of the Senate, dies at 92.” Any questions? TONY MOSCHETTI High Point

Ted Conley exhibits the spirit that makes America great He bought a Mac Mini and joined Apple’s iPhone developer program. He began working day and night to develop a better solution. Four months later, he launched TapSpeak Button, a simple-to-use application that OPINION teaches simple messages – about thirst, hunger, etc. – on an Tom iPhone or iPad. Purcell “It allows parents to take a ■■■ picture of eggs and instantly upload it into the program,” says Conley. “It requires very little skill for a child to touch the picture on the screen and cause the recorded message, ‘more eggs,’ to play.” Conley quickly discovered he was onto something. More than 50 speech therapists at the Children’s Institute of Pittsburgh, the Western Pennsylvania School for Blind Children and other organizations were ecstatic to learn he was developing modern training solutions. Conley’s wife began marketing the $10 application ( Sales began coming in from all over the world. Though his TapSpeak products are moving in the right direction – he’ll soon introduce TapSpeak Sequence and TapSpeak Choices – the revenue is not yet enough to sustain his family. Without outside investment, he’ll need to return to a corporate job. “The fact is the earlier and more effectively you train a disabled child, the more dramatic the results,” says Conley. “Our passion is to perfect solutions that will help my son, and, hopefully, many others, improve as quickly as possible. We have no choice but to overcome any obstacle that stands in the way of that goal.” Ah, yes – a challenge, a father’s determination, a solution. Such is the genius that made America the most innovative, prosperous nation on the planet – the genius we need plenty more of to get our economy going again.

Patrol’s image must be rebuilt


Michael B. Starn Publisher



ere’s a sentiment that helped make America great: Necessity is the mother of invention. Ted Conley offers a fine example. Conley, a 48-year-old software engineer, was laid off from a large financial services firm in February 2009. With four children to support – two teenage daughters from a prior marriage and a young daughter and son from his current marriage – he began looking for work immediately. His 3-year-old son, Pierce, added to his worry. Pierce suffers from cerebral palsy (CP), a form of paralysis believed to be caused by a prenatal brain defect or injury, and cortical vision impairment (CVI), also caused by a brain defect. With CP, normal pathways in the brain are damaged. Children suffering the illness have limited motor skills and difficulty processing basic information. Rigorous therapy, however – physical, occupational and speech – can establish new pathways in the brain. However, Conley was shocked by the “Stone Age” devices therapists were using to train his son. One device uses a large, bright, colored button that, when pressed, plays a single recorded word: “thirsty” or “hungry.” The child is taught to press the button to communicate thirst or hunger. “To help our son communicate basic messages, such as ‘I want more eggs,’ therapists had us take a picture of the eggs, print it out, laminate it and tape it to the button!” says Conley. Pressing the large buttons is another challenge, requiring motor skills that younger children with CP have not yet developed. Conley searched high and low for more advanced devices, but found none. He concluded he’d have to build them himself. But he faced other challenges. Despite 25 years of software-engineering experience – despite a master’s degree in software engineering from prestigious Carnegie Mellon University – job offers were not forthcoming. Eager to preserve his family’s savings, he took odd jobs – painting, repairing drywall, wiring security systems – while he pounded the pavement for work in his field. One evening, while struggling through a therapy session with his son, he’d had enough.

ome of us raised in North Carolina may have grown up years ago with young men who couldn’t wait to turn 21 and apply for the North Carolina Highway Patrol. Some of us may even have known young men who grew up in the patrol and eventually gave their lives in the line of duty. While all law enforcement service is hazardous and deserving of our respect, those who wore the gray and black of the Highway Patrol and who were known as state troopers commanded a special presence when among us. But during the last several years, the image of the SHP – both here and among law enforcement nationally – has been tarnished. It is time for that situation to change. So let us hope that during the 23 minutes Gov. Bev Perdue spent Wednesday with the patrol commander she appointed and about 160 of the agency’s supervisors that she clearly laid down the law. Perdue explained during a press conference after the meeting that she told supervisors what “the new normal” in the patrol would be: “If you betray your oath, you will be dismissed.” Perdue also said after the meeting, “I don’t believe that since some of these men and women were sworn in 22 years ago that anybody has ever dared get in their face and say that ethics code is a litmus test for your job.” Certainly, we realize it is a small minority of troopers who have put the patrol in a bad light recently. But let’s hope all members of the patrol take this opportunity to rededicate themselves to that ethics code and to rebuilding and repairing the patrol’s image. As for Perdue’s directive to Patrol Commander Col. Randy Glover and Secretary of Crime Control Reuben Young to provide her with a plan within 60 days to restructure the patrol’s leadership, perhaps that could begin with changes to the extent that politics is or can be involved in the patrol’s administrative structure and promotions. In fact, reports persist that years ago as a legislator, Perdue intervened to have Glover’s name added to a promotions list to lieutenant. They both deny that. Perhaps, state leaders should examine the patrol’s procedures for promotions with a special eye toward detecting and removing political influence. Perhaps then, the patrol’s ethics code would become more meaningful to every trooper from top to bottom in rank.

Spellbound audience



Noted storyteller has listeners’ attention

Dr. Brenda Latham-Sadler, assistant dean of Student Services at Wake Forest University’s School of Medicine, is presently serving as immediate past president on the executive committee for the Forsyth-StokesDavie County Medical Society and served as president last year.


HIGH POINT – Donna Washington, a noted North Carolina storyteller, riveted children and parents alike with her animated storytelling Thursday at the High Point Neal F. Austin Public Library. Washington had an audience of toddlers, elementary schoolers, preteens and parents and involved every single person in the storyroom with her tales. She told three stories: “The Tiger, the Man and the Mouse,” “Epaminondas” and a not-so-scary story called “Red, Red Lips.” “Storytelling is the only job I’ve ever had,” Washington said. “I’ve been doing it for 22 years.” The story of the “Tiger, the Man and the Mouse” told a tale of a Brahman who let a tiger out of its cage and a mouse who tricks the tiger back into its cage. “Epaminondas” tells the tale of a young boy who gets sent to his grandmother’s house when he drives his mother crazy. Washington asked the audience to recite the refrain “Epaminondas, you ain’t got the sense you was born with!” every time she put her hands on


Storyteller Donna Washington tells a tale with animated emphasis Thursday at the High Point Neal F. Austin Public Library. her hips. “Red, Red Lips” was a story about how a child’s imagination can be the scariest thing in the dark. Washington is a children’s author and recording artist. She won a 2002 Parent’s Choice Award for her first independent recording, “Live and Learn: The Exploding Frog and Other Stories.” Her lat-

est CD, “Angels’ Laughter,” was released in May 2006 and is a winner of the 2007 Media Best Product Award. She has released seven CDs and three children’s books. All of her CDs have won 2005 Children’s Music Web Awards, and many have won the Parent’s Choice Award in 2004 and 2005. Jim Zola, head of children’s ser-

vices at the library, praised Washington’s performance. “She has been here before, and she did such a wonderful job and a lot of kids and their parents came out to hear her,” Zola said. “We enjoyed her so much that she’s always welcome to come back.” | 888-3534

Author seeks understanding of city history BY DIANNA BELL ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – In 2002, Glenn Chavis went to the library and requested books on the history of High Point to research his genealogy. The librarian brought back the only four books in the place, and out of all of them, only one had information on AfricanAmericans. Chavis grew frustrated at the lack of information and talked to his son about the issue. His son presented him with the word “history” and proceeded to circle the first three letters. “It’s his research, his writing, his interpretation,” Chavis recalled his son saying. That is when he got the idea to re-write the history of High Point to explore, in depth, African-Americans and their mark on the city. The first in his five-book series has just been pub-

lished and is titled “Our Roots, Our Branches, Our Fruit: High Point’s Black HisChavis tory, 18591960.” “I began telling a story and it didn’t make any sense to me,” Chavis recalls of High Point’s early years. “Unless you lived it, you can’t do it justice.” This first book serves as an overview of the early years in a time linelike style. It shares facts about some of the littleknown details of High Point, such as a theater on Washington Drive that was started by three African-American men in the early 1900s, information on High Point’s first hotel, and visits to High Point from Langston Hughes and Booker T. Washington. “The purpose of these books is to give people a better understanding of

one another and where they came from,” Chavis said. Chavis also spoke of the importance of reading about one’s heritage. “When you only read negative things about your culture, history and past, a person will begin to act out,” Chavis said. “Blacks have always been presented in a negative way in newspapers and I want to help change that image.” The books are not full of happy stories, however. “I don’t try to dress history up,” Chavis said. “You get the good, the bad, and the ugly.” Chavis’ book is being sold through the High Point Museum, with a portion of the proceeds going towards the African-American heritage exhibit. A copy of “Our Roots, Our Branches, Our Fruit: High Point’s Black History, 1859-1960” sells for $24.95. | 888-3537

Summer meals sites added ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

GUILFORD COUNTY – Three high schools, including T.W. Andrews High in High Point, joined the school district’s Summer Nutrition Program this week. The cafeterias will be open during July so students can continue to receive nutritious meals when school is not in session. Through the Summer Nutrition Program, the school cafeterias will prepare meals and serve them to children

18 and under at no cost. The meals will be served at 11 a.m. Monday to Friday through July 31. The district started serving the meals June 17 at Fairview, Montlieu and Union Hill elementary schools. That program will continue through July 30. The program is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which reimburses the district for meals served to eligible children. In 2009, GCS prepared about 5,000 meals a day.

NC bill gives towed vehicle owners more rights RALEIGH (AP) – North Carolina’s Legislature has passed new rules reining in abusive tow truck operators. The state Senate voted 45-2 for consumer protection standards for most of the state’s major urban areas and Dare, Richmond, and Robeson counties. The measure now goes to Gov. Beverly Perdue for consideration. The law requires parking lots that tow away unauthorized vehicles to post a 2by-2 foot sign with the name and phone number of its towing company. Tow-truck operators couldn’t haul cars more than 25 miles away.

Millicent Marsden HIGH POINT – Millicent Snyder Marsden died quietly at Pennybyrn at Maryfield in High Point, NC on July 5, 2010. Born in Jackson, Minnesota to Stewart D. and Millicent F. Snyder, she was 91 years old. Mrs. Marsden leaves behind four children, Millicent M. Parker, Andrea M. Morgan, Lawrence S. Marsden, and John D. Marsden. Mrs. Marsden had one daughter, Merrily, who preceded her in death. Also surviving are 14 grandchildren, and 18 great-grandchildren. Known as “Milly” to her friends, she and her husband of 64 years, Lawrence A. Marsden, moved to High Point in 1947, shortly after the end of World War II. Larry became successful in the textile industry, and Milly plied her own interests into a very full life. In addition to rearing her children, she was actively involved in the High Point Junior League, the local Girl Scouts of America, her garden club group and other social and civic organizations. She was a long-time member of First Presbyterian Church of High Point. Marsden was a woman of intellect and ability, graduating summa cum laude from the University of Minnesota with a business degree. She was a member of Tri Delta sorority and was editor of The Gopher, the school’s yearbook. She learned to fly, working towards her private pilot’s license and soloing, and utilized her business acumen helping her husband in his business. She was an avid golfer, scoring two holes-in-one during her lifetime. She enjoyed traveling with her husband and friends, touring extensively throughout the United States as well as the world, visiting Europe, South America, the Caribbean, Australia and New Zealand among other destinations. Perhaps what Milly will be remembered for most is the long-lasting partnership with Larry, who preceded her in death in 2005. Not only family, but friends and others who knew them will recall the couple as ever together. Their example to the family as a loving couple is beyond reproach, and will remain their greatest and most indelible legacy. Known as “Muie” to her grand and great-grandchildren, she was generous, patient, and always available for a comforting hug. She is greatly missed, greatly loved and greatly appreciated for her contributions into her family’s life. A family gathering for friends and relatives will be held on Sunday, July 11, 2010, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Marsden residence. Memorial services will be conducted at Pennybyrn in the Chapel on Monday, July 12, beginning at 11 am. The family requests that no flowers be sent, and that memorials be forwarded to Pennybyrn or the North Carolina Zoo. Sechrest Funeral Service is in charge of the arrangements.

Chamber recruits record number of new members BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – The number of new members recently recruited by the High Point Chamber of Commerce has president Tom Dayvault feeling much better about the smallbusiness climate. It may not signal the end of economic struggles, but the chamber recruited 232 members in three days in its latest recruitment project. It’s the largest number of new recruits in the chamber’s history, and the second-largest within that time frame on the East Coast, according to Your Chamber Connection, a Fort Worth, Texas-based recruitment firm. “This shows faith, that (businesses) in High Point and the Triad agree and have faith with what we’re doing,� Dayvault said about the feat. “It shows that (recruits)

are wanting to bring that economic recovery about.� The chamber recruits new members all year, but occasionally amplifies its efforts with special projects or recruitment periods. This is the chamber’s first partnership with the firm, and more than 164 volunteers were involved in the efforts. Six volunteer teams were created from current chamber members, and each group spent four half-day sessions training for the project. Then they began the process of finding small businesses, both in and around High Point, to join. “We’ve done volunteer campaigns in the past, but this brought in a new energy,� Dayvault said. “It was great to see people having fun.� There currently are 1,250 chamber members, and the recruitment project is still under way. Having a chamber with a small

membership also may benefit a community by influencing laws surrounding small businesses, Dayvault added. “One of the largest rules in the chamber world today is advocacy,� he said. “The more members we have as we go before governmental entities pushing our mission, the more impact we’ll have on final decisions and pieces of legislation.� Owen Bertschi, chairman of the chamber, said the large pool of new members reinforces the organization’s mission statement. “To bring in this many members, in this economy, reinforces our chamber’s mantra of truly being ‘Champions of Free Enterprise,’ � Bertschi said. “We are the voice of business, and we know these new members will make our organization even stronger as we meet challenges ahead.�

Pastor sells truck for parts and takes widow for a ride


ear Abby: Last year, my husband of 36 years died. My pastor came over a few days later to help me clean up my yard because my husband was a pack rat. I did not realize that some of the items I thought were junk were valuable. My pastor took the items, sold them for scrap and kept the money for himself. He also took my husband’s truck to his shop, stripped it and sold the parts. I have tried calling him but he won’t answer or return my calls. I tried talking to him after church only to have him shut the door in my face. I have written him a letter – no response. Abby, I don’t want to take my pastor to court. I’m beginning to lose my faith. What should I do? – Losing My Faith in Kinston, N.C. Dear Losing Your Faith: My gut reaction is to scream, “Call the cops!� The man you have described is a wolf in shepherd’s clothing and it could save other trusting widows from being fleeced as you have been. If you can’t bring yourself to take that “pastard� to civil court, at least report these thefts to the judicatory or regional board of your denomination so they can deal with him. Dear Abby: I have been married 30 years and have had issues with my mother-in-law since before the wedding. She didn’t want me to marry her son and has criti-

cized my hair, my weight, my child-rearing, etc., during my entire marriage. ADVICE Of course, she never Dear says these Abby things ■■■ when my husband is within earshot. I didn’t discuss it with him because we don’t see her often. We’re planning a oneweek visit with them, and my 50th birthday will occur during the visit. My husband told me I could do whatever I wanted on my birthday and mentioned including his parents. I told him I didn’t want to spend the day with them and now he’s mad at me. I realize this may seem petty to you, but this is a milestone birthday that I’m not really looking forward to. What do I do? Do I “suck it up� and deal with her presence on my birthday or stand my ground? – Dreading It in Alamogordo, N.M. Dear Dreading It: Remind your spouse that he SAID you could do anything you wished on your birthday, and that you didn’t realize that telling him you wanted to spend this milestone without his parents would upset him. Then tell him that because he feels obligated to include his parents, of course, you won’t object – as long as he’s willing to

celebrate the occasion the way YOU would like after you return from the visit. P.S. It’s too bad you didn’t tell him his mother was “gunning for you� decades ago, because he might have been able to nip it in the bud. Dear Abby: Many years ago my wife conceived a child with an old boyfriend who had been after her for quite a while without my knowledge. I adopted the child after he left her. I have tried to convince my wife to tell our daughter the truth for medical reasons, but she refuses. She feels if she tells our daughter the truth, she will be disgraced forever. What is your opinion? – Loves My Daughter in Washington state Dear Loves Your Daughter: Your daughter should have been told the truth years ago – and it is still not too late to do so. My concern is that she may eventually hear it from some other relative or a close family friend who assumes she already knows. These kinds of family secrets invariably have a way of slipping out, and better that your daughter hear the story from her mother than someone else. DEAR ABBY is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

hiring goals and still collect the maximum under a tax rebate program. The two data centers would account for about 250 jobs and $1.75 billion in investment, Sen. Dan Clodfelter, D-Mecklenburg, said after sponsoring the measure in May. Those estimates suggest two data centers slightly larger than the vast server farms that Google and Apple have placed west of Charlotte in the past two years. Data centers are big collections of Internet servers able to process tremendous amounts of data traffic. IBM, SAS and American Express also have built such server farms in recent years.

thanks to their exemptions, analysts said. “This is corporate welfare,� said House Minority Leader Paul Stam, RWake.

returns to the Senate for final approval as early as Friday. The proposals would drop sales taxes from the machinery, equipment, and huge amounts of electricity Internet data centers use. The turbine manufacturer and the paper plant would receive sale-tax refunds on the building materials, supplies, fixtures, and equipment they buy. Legislative fiscal analysts had estimated the proposal would cost the state about $39 million in uncollected taxes.

Lawmakers aim special tax breaks at big firms RALEIGH (AP) – North Carolina legislators are on the verge of passing a package of special tax breaks for a handful of as-yet unidentified big businesses that officials hope will bring new jobs to the state. The state House voted 79-30 on Thursday to approve the incentives sought by an energy turbine manufacturer, a plant converting wood pulp to paper and at least two computer data centers. Although the companies have not been publicly identified, state Commerce Secretary Keith Crisco this week said average consumers would recognize their names. The measure now

Aphiuma is a most unusual animal T

he two-toed amphiuma (scientific name: Amphiuma means) not only surprises many visitors with its unusual size and shape, but also often mystifies visitors to even its correct species. Actually a snakelike salamander, the amphiuma is often thought to be an eel or water snake and is commonly, but incorrectly, called a “congo snake,� “lamper eel� or “conger eel.� Its thick, blue-black (or grayblack) body ZOO TALES is about 36 inches long Tom in a mature Gillespie adult, ■■■ making it the largest amphibian in North America. They can go years without food and are known to live for as many as 27 years. The three species of amphiuma can be distinguished by the number of toes on their tiny limbs: pholeter has one toe, means has two; tridactylum has three. The twotoed is the most common of the three. The misnomer of “eel� is well-deserved considering its long, slender bodies and inconspicuous legs; however, it’s a true amphibian. Four vestigial legs that end in two or three toes are virtually useless. It is the only amphibian that poses a physical (as opposed to chemical) threat to people. Strong jaws with a double row of razor-sharp teeth can deliver a savage bite.


Actually a snakelike amphibian salamander, the amphiuma is often incorrectly thought to be an eel or water snake. Among North American herptiles, only snapping turtles (Chelydridae) have a worse bite. Although primarily aquatic, amphiumas can leave water temporarily, where they dig burrows in muddy bottoms or invade the burrows of other aquatic animals. They range through the coastal swamps and drainage ditches of southeastern Virginia, through the Carolinas and Georgia, and on throughout coastal Florida to the Louisiana bayous. Their fossils have been found at one site in Texas. Strictly carnivorous, their diet consists chiefly of earthworms, crustaceans and other small invertebrates, which they hunt mostly at night. Amphiuma larvae have external gills, but after about four months, these external gills disappear, and the lungs begin to work. One pair of gill slits,

the skin is difficult to strip from the flesh. Amphiuma red blood cells are the largest known in vertebrates and are often used in physiological studies in labs and classrooms. Human encroachment has decimated much of the habitat of amphiuma, but it is one of few species in which this encroachment has, in some cases, increased their habitats by the building of ponds, lakes and waterways. Interest in amphibians, such as the amphiuma, continues to rise as people become more aware of this fascinating group of animals. The amphiumas can be viewed daily at the park’s Streamside and Cypress Swamp habitats. TOM GILLESPIE lives in Trinity and is a public affairs specialist with the North Carolina Zoological Park.

with fully functioning internal gills, is retained and never disappears. Hatchlings are slightly more than 2 inches long at birth and already have all four limbs. Although biologists have found amphiuma nests out of the water, it is generally thought that the females lay their eggs in the water and that the water subsequently recedes, exposing the eggs. But some eggs have been found so far from the water’s edge that it seems likely that they were initially laid out of water. Amphiumas are not considered threatened in the wild. Their primary predators are wading birds and the mud snake (Farancia abacura), which feeds almost exclusively on amphiumas. Their flesh is edible, but luckily, few people eat them because

Major causes for heart enlargement D

ear Dr. Donohue: Will you inform me about big hearts or enlarged hearts? I have one. – P.


It’s hard to imagine why the heart was picked to represent romance. It isn’t terribly romantic. It’s a muscular sack that pumps blood. The right side of the heart pumps blood to the lungs to pick up oxygen. The left side of the heart pumps blood to the body to deliver the oxygen it picked up. The reasons for heart enlargement are many. Hearts of well-trained athletes grow bigger, because, like any other muscle, the heart responds to exercise. This is good heart enlargement. An athletic heart can pump more blood with each beat and, therefore, needs fewer beats to get the job done. High blood pressure makes the heart grow larger. The high pressure is an obstacle to blood pumping. The heart has to exert more force to circulate blood. It enlarges in order to do so. Unless blood pressure is lowered, enlargement cannot continue indefinitely. Untreated high blood pressure makes the heart give out. Heart failure leads to a larger heart. The problem lies with flabby heart muscle, because the arteries supplying the heart are clogged. The heart muscle isn’t















being nourished. The heart cannot pump with force. It stays filled with HEALTH blood and stretches Dr. Paul out like Donohue an over■■■ inflated balloon. Treatment here centers on clearing out the obstructed heart arteries and providing medicines for a stronger beat. Heart valve disease causes heart enlargement. Cardiomyopathy, a disease (“pathy”) of heart muscle (“cardiomy”) is another condition that makes the heart bigger. Sometimes it’s a hereditary condition. Sometimes it results from an infection of the heart muscle. Sometimes strange materials are deposited in the heart muscle, like iron or the protein amyloid. The point to take home about heart enlargement is that finding the cause is necessary in order to find the cure.

Dear Dr. Donohue: After reading your article on constipation, I felt compelled to tell you of a solution for my husband’s longstanding constipation. His sister told him to go to a healthfood store and buy wheat bran. The saleswoman brought us a 1-pound bag

for less than $2. Every morning, my husband puts one heaping tablespoon onto his cooked oatmeal and stirs it into the oatmeal. Regularity isn’t even discussed anymore. It’s become a normal thing. The cost and ease of taking it made us believers. – C.B. Bran is fiber and is a good constipation treatment. It keeps water in the undigested food residue. That makes for ease of elimination. Do you know what bran is? It’s the outer coat of a grain, the stuff removed when refining grains. Whole grains are grains that retain their bran coat. Dear Dr. Donohue: A short time ago, you dealt with the use of Tums for its calcium. How does the Tums know whether it’s being used for calcium or as an antacid? – C.D. Tums doesn’t know why it’s being taken. It’s not high on brain power. Tums is calcium carbonate. The calcium part of Tums goes to bones. The carbonate part of Tums deals with stomach acid. DR. DONOHUE regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible. Readers may write him or request an order form of available health newsletters at P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475



‘The Pacific,’ ‘Glee’ lead Emmy nominees LOS ANGELES (AP) – “Glee,� the spunky TV musical comedy about high school misfits and the teachers who shepherd them, was a top Emmy nominee Thursday with 19 bids, including for best comedy series and stars Matthew Morrison and Lea Michele. “I’m in such shock,� Michele said from New York. The leading nominee was the gritty, unsparing World War II drama, “The Pacific,� with 24 nominations. Conan O’Brien is gone from NBC’s “The Tonight Show� but his short tenure as host is not forgotten: The late-night show with him at the helm nabbed a nomination as best variety, music or comedy series, while resurrected Jay Leno was snubbed in the category. David Letterman’s “Late Show� also was missing from the nominees, after a season in which the host turned an admission of affairs with female staffers and a blackmail attempt into high broadcast drama. Out of the running for best comedy series is “Two and Half Men� as well as its star, Charlie Sheen, who’s been charged in a domestic dispute case involving his wife. The show and Sheen have routinely been nominated in past seasons. Besides “Glee,� other newcomers receiving Emmy recognition include “Modern Family,� with nods for best comedy series and for five members of its ensemble cast – although not linchpin Ed O’Neill as the patriarch – and “The Good Wife,� a nominee for best drama.


Mel Gibson is focus of inquiry LOS ANGELES (AP) – Mel Gibson was named Thursday as a potential suspect in a domestic violence investigation involving his ex-girlfriend, Russian singer Oksana Grigorieva, earlier this year, sheriff’s officials said. The disclosure came after detectives interviewed Grigorieva about the alleged attack at an undisclosed location in Malibu.

Sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore said Grigorieva was the only person interGibson viewed so far in the case. Gibson and Grigorieva have been involved in a nasty custody dispute over their infant daughter – the subject of a confidential court case.

LEMMONS – Native American culture will take center stage this weekend at one of the state’s largest Native American pow wows. The seventh annual Strong Sun Pow Wow, which will take place today through Sunday at Tanglewood Park, will feature Native American music, dance and storytelling, Native American arts and crafts, and vendors selling Native American foods such as different types of fry bread. More conventional concessions – such as hot dogs, hamburgers and barbecue – will also be available. “We’re expecting a huge crowd,” said Jim Wilson, principal chief of the Nuluti Equani Ehi tribe of Yadkin County, which hosts the pow wow. “We had something like 3,500 people last year, and I couldn’t even see my own dance circle.” That’s what prompted the tribe to move the pow wow, which draws tribes from all over the country, to Tanglewood this year. “We started up in East Bend on a ball field, and we just kept growing,” Wilson said. “The last two years, we were at Historic Bethabara Park in Winston-Sa-

At least 25 Native American craftsmen from all over the country will be on hand selling their wares. Acclaimed musician John Sarantos, a Native American flutist who has performed at Carnegie Hall, will perform a concert at 6:30 p.m. today and will give music lessons throughout the weekend. “(Today) will be geared toward children, because we’re a teaching pow wow,” Wilson said. “We’ll teach dancing and things like that to the children.” | 888-3579



The Strong Sun Pow Wow will be held today through Sunday at Tanglewood Park in Clemmons. The hours are 10 a.m.-5:30 p.m. today, 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Saturday, and 11:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Sunday.

Zoo attendance reaches 13-year high ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

ASHEBORO – The North Carolina Zoo’s attendance for fiscal year 2009-10 hit the three-quarter million mark for the first time in 13 years and ranked as the fourthhighest annual total in zoo history. A total of 749,627 visitors passed through the zoo gates between July 1, 2009, and June 30, 2010. That represents an increase of more than 20,000 visitors over

the previous fiscal year total of 729,417, and the highest numbers since fiscal year 1997-98, when the total was 782,016. The fiscal year record of 934,455 was set in 1994-95 as the zoo opened an entire new 200-acre North America exhibit region. Zoo officials credit several factors for the increased attendance, including the opening of two new major exhibits over the past year – the Acacia Station


giraffe-feeding platform and the Lemur Island exhibit. Zoo Director Dr. David Jones also credited an increased target marketing effort that included the integration of social media such as Twitter, Facebook and YouTube into the marketing program. Jones said generally good weather during the year and the zoo’s value for families still concerned about the wavering economy were also factors.

Friday, July 9, 2010 CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Fred Savage, 34; Courtney Love, 46; Tom Hanks, 54; Chris Cooper, 59 HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Don’t let your emotions get the better of you. Patience will be required. It’s your attitude that will count and determine the outcome of anything you undertake this year. There is plenty to be thankful for, so realize your good fortune. This is a year of progress as long as you don’t wallow in negativity and jealously. Your numbers are 6, 14, 17, 29, 33, 37, 46 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Life experience will count. Don’t be surprised by what others do or say. Keeping a poker face will help you control the situation and buy you time to make some alterations of your own. ★★★★ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don’t let someone else’s plans or opinions make you feel uncertain about your own. You will do your best and get the furthest if you ignore what everyone else is doing and saying and focus on what you produce. ★★★ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You can resolve problems by hashing out what’s doable and what isn’t with the people you are up against. Once you have made your offer, it will be easier to find common ground. Communication is the name of the game, so speak from the heart. ★★★ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Approach domestic and professional jobs from a different angle and you will realize how you can get ahead. Present and promote what you have to offer and you will interest someone in your plans. Don’t take on someone else’s responsibilities. ★★★ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You can persuade others to help you achieve your goals. Taking a practical, meaningful approach to everything you do will encourage others to do the same. A love relationship will be disappointing from a financial view. ★★★★ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t let your emotions lead to a mistake you’ll regret. Sharing your inner thoughts with someone who doesn’t have your best interests at heart will turn out badly. The less dependent you are, the better. ★★ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): There is a lesson to be learned about sharing your personal thoughts with just anybody. A colleague will use information you share against you. Professionalism will be what counts in the end. ★★★★★ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don’t let love stand in the way of your progress. Get your work out of the way before you move on. You may feel like cutting corners but, if you listen to an older experienced comrade, you will realize there is no shortcut when it comes to being the best. ★★★ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Follow your heart and don’t give in to someone’s emotional ultimatum. Don’t show anger or upset. Now is the time for strength. Stick to your opinion and prepare to walk away if that’s what’s required. ★★★ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Sharing your ideas will bring about controversy. Don’t limit what you want to do because of comments made by skeptics or ultra conservative individuals lacking vision. Debates will be informative. Don’t let love cost you. ★★★ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You mustn’t get all worked up about something that needs to be hashed out maturely. Bring issues that concern you out into the open. Listen to what the voice of authority and experience has to say. Life is too short to waste living a lie. Speak up. ★★★★★ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t be taken in by compliments. A partnership can only be valuable if you share the work and the recognition equally. Emotional deception is apparent. If you cannot come to an agreement, ask an outsider for perspective. ★★




Cy the Cynic says that there are a lot of fish in the sea, but most of them will go after the same bait. At four spades, South took the ace of hearts and led a trump to his queen, and West baited his hook by casually playing low. South next led the ace and a low diamond, and East won and returned a heart. (For West to win and shift to a club wasn’t clear.) South ruffed and ruffed a diamond in dummy, setting up the diamonds. At that point, South could ruff a heart and pitch a club from dummy on a good diamond. If a defender ruffed with the jack of trumps and led a club, South could take the ace and discard dummy’s last club on his fifth diamond. He would lose two trumps and a diamond.

SECOND TRUMP Instead, declarer led a second trump from dummy – and found himself gaffed. West took the ace and jack and led the queen of hearts. South ruffed but had a club loser at the end. Down one. I could understand South’s misplay if he had been a tuna, but South was a shark. He was play-



ing for France in a world championship match.

DAILY QUESTION You hold: S 7 H K 7 6 3 2 D Q 8 7 C K 10 8 2. Your partner opens one spade, you respond 1NT and he bids two hearts. What do you say? ANSWER: Since partner may have a strong hand, to pass and give up on game would be timid. Raise to three hearts. With 7, K 7 6 3 2, 8 7 6, A J 8 2, you might try four hearts, but in your actual hand, the queen of diamonds may be worthless, and the king of clubs may be wasted opposite a singleton. North dealer E-W vulnerable

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

CLEMMONS – One last thrilling rally never materialized for High Point Post 87 in the conclusion of a thrilling American Legion Baseball playoff series. As a result, the Junior HiToms’ season concluded far earlier than hoped. “I’m very proud of the way these guys fought,” Post 87 coach Rob Shore said Thursday night. “Most teams in the second round of the playoffs have a full 18-man roster and we had 13, 14 all week. For us to stretch this to a fifth game – I’m very pleased with the way we played.” Andre McKoy clubbed a pair of

homers and drove in five runs to spark Western Forsyth Post 522 to a 13-2 victory. The win sent No. 1 seed Western into the semifinal round of the Area III playoffs and capped the No. 4 Junior HiToms’ season at 18-9. McKoy and Dustin Myers hit back-to-back shots in a four-run first inning off Tyler Southcott. That lead hardly seemed safe, though, after the teams combined for dozens of runs in the first four meetings. Southcott – an emergency starter given Post 87’s absences – wouldn’t allow another run before leaving in the fourth, and Mike Whited pulled Post 87 within two runs in the second inning with a towering home run over

the scoreboard in left-center. “When we were down 7-1 here two nights ago, we honestly seemed out of the game,” Shore said. “But a few runs here and there and we were right back in it.” All the way back, in fact, after Kevin Sanders’ grand slam sealed an 11-7 win. But Thursday, Western’s Jacob Russell pitched masterfully, allowing just two hits and walking one to go with six Ks in his seven innings. “We got the two (runs) in the second and just couldn’t score in the middle innings,” Shore said. Western had no such issues. Taking advantage of Post 87’s tired arms, the home team scored four runs in the fourth off Huston

Harrington – three on McKoy’s laser that glanced off the top of the wall on its way over – and got two more in the sixth. Reliever Aaron Blackmon entered in the seventh and saw a single and a walk set the stage for D.J. Little. With two outs, Little launched a towering home run to left-center that stopped the game via the 10-run mercy rule. “We’ve played eight games in a row now, and that takes a toll on your pitchers,” Shore said. “When you go into a best threeout-of-five series and you’ve only got two of your starters from the season, you’re going to have to ask guys to dig deep.” | 888-3526


THOMASVILLE – The excitement of HiToms baseball is back at Finch Field after the Tommies pulled off a stellar comeback to defeat the Martinsville Mustangs 6-5 Thursday evening. Plagued by disappointment, the HiToms were able to smile for once, as the good guys plated two runs in the bottom half of the ninth inning to score the come-from-behind victory. After trailing 5-0, the HiToms needed just one run to tie in the ninth and two to win. Kyle Barbeck scored the first on a sacrifice fly by Cass Hargis, then Tyler Frederick doubled down the line in left to move Alex Yarbrough to third. In stepped Zak Wasserman of Louisville, who delivered a laser ground ball through the box to score the game-winner. The HiToms improve to 2-5 in the second half standings while the Mustangs fall to 3-4. Reliever Johnny Hoffman did a tremendous job on the hill over the final 52⁄3 innings, keeping Martinsville silent in picking up the win. Starting games have been tough for the pitching staff of the HiToms this season, and the first inning was no different. Starter Ben Grisz gave up a single to leadoff hitter Matthew McGovern, who was sacrificed to second via the bunt. Grisz then struck out Matthew Black, needing just one more out to get in the dugout. Cleanup hitter Cody Pack made him wait at least one more batter, as the slugger lifted an oppositefield home run off the bottom of the netting in rightcenter field, as the Mustangs galloped out to a 2-0 lead. While Martinsville starter Michael White was busy handcuffing the HiToms hitters, his offense was going back to work getting him some more run support. A run in the third pushed the lead to three then two more in the fourth made it 5-0 Mustangs, as the Tommies were facing another uphill climb like they have done all season. Hargis and Frederick helped make the trek up the incline a bit shorter in the fifth, as Hargis brought in Kyle Grieshaber with a bases loaded walk and Frederick scored David Roney on a fielder’s choice. White’s arm showed signs of fatigue a frame later, as he yielded two more runs to leave the HiToms trailing by a single run. Matt Dillon singled to start the inning and was brought home a batter later on a double down the left field line by Daniel Kassouf. After making his way to third on a wild pitch, Kassouf covered the final 90 feet thanks to a sacrifice fly off the bat of Grieshaber. The rally kept plugging along, as the final two runs in the ninth kept hopes high of making a huge push in the second half.

Former UNC star Brendan Haywood is coming back to the Dallas Mavericks – as the starting center. Haywood agreed Thursday to a $55 million, six-year contract, according to a person familiar with negotiations. The Mavs are counting on Haywood to thrive as the full-time starter. He averaged 9.8 points, 10.3 rebounds and 2.1 blocks in 32.9 minutes as the Wizards starter last season.



Basketball fan Harry James Labissiere (left) and a customer in his Miami barbershop celebrate Thursday as NBA free agent LeBron James announces his decision on television to join the Miami Heat.


See ya, Cleveland. Sorry, Chicago, New York and New Jersey. Maybe next time around, Clippers. LeBron James chose superstar help over the comforts of home and is heading for Miami because he wants to win a championship with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. NBA, get ready: A superstar trio has just been born. Ending weeks of will-he-or-won’t-he speculation, the two-time MVP said Thursday night that he’s decided to join the Heat and leave the Cavaliers after an unsuccessful seven-year quest for the ring he covets.

“I can’t say it was always in my plans, because I never thought it was possible,” James said on a made-for-Lebron live show on ESPN. “But the things that the Miami Heat franchise have done, to free up cap space and be able to put themselves in a position this summer to have all three of us, it was hard to turn down. Those are two great players, two of the greatest players that we have in this game today.” Olympic teammates in Beijing, James, Bosh and Wade all helped deliver gold medals. This time, it’ll be about a gold trophy, the NBA championship one – the one Wade got in 2006, the one that James and Bosh have yet to touch.





HIT AND RUN hile Stephen Strasburg stirred most of the debate surrounding the selection of the National League All-Star pitching staff, I thought another Senior Circuit hurler deserved consideration. Why not put Philadelphia Phillies’ veteran left-hander Jamie Moyer on the squad? I know Moyer drew notice when he surrendered his big-league record 506th career homer earlier this season. But the fact is, this 47-year-old moundsman knows how to pitch. The National League All-Star pitching staff features more flamethrowers than a GI Joe display at a toy store. That’s fine.


But why not mix in a crafty southpaw with an array of baffling pitches that go slow, slower and slowest? Moyer’s numbers this season aren’t bad at all – a 9-8 record with a 4.51 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP (walks plus hits per innings pitched). Opponents are batting a paltry .234 against him. He’s fanned 62 with only 20 walks. On the downside, he has allowed 18 homers. Still, Moyer seems an ideal All-Star reliever to get that one key out against a power-hitting AL lefty slugger in the late innings. Since making his big-league debut in ‘86 (that’s 1986, not 1886), Moyer sports a solid 267-203 record. He earned an All-Star invitation with Seattle in ‘03 (that’s 2003, not 1903).

The All-Star Game is all about history and tradition. Moyer has lived plenty of history. He was born Nov. 18, 1962. The No. 1 song in the nation on that date was “Big Girls Don’t Cry” by The Four Seasons. “The Longest Day” was No. 1 at the box office, while the national average cost for a gallon of gas was 20 cents. I hope Charlie Manuel, the Phillies manager and skipper for the NL in Tuesday’s AllStar Game in Anaheim, considers Moyer as a replacement should one of the current NL pitchers be forced to pull out for some reason. There is no substitute for experience.

ACC, ESPN reach 12-year TV rights deal RALEIGH (AP) – The Atlantic Coast Conference and ESPN have agreed to a 12-year deal that would give the network exclusive rights to conference football and men’s basketball games. A person familiar with the agreement told The Associated Press that it’s worth $1.86 billion over the 12 years. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because financial terms were not released when the two sides announced the deal Thursday. That would double the league’s annual TV revenue when the contract begins in the 2011-12 season. It would also give ESPN syndication rights that would allow Raycom Sports to carry games and maintain its long-running regional broadcasting relationship with the league. Partnering with ESPN ends talk for now about the ACC following the lead of the Big Ten by creating its own television network. Commissioner John Swofford said the league did its “due diligence” by researching the issue, but said the ACC opted to avoid the upfront startup costs and the financial risk in favor of utilizing ESPN’s in-place broadcast and multimedia outlets. “When you go with somebody for that kind of money with no financial risk and they have the extensive platforms they have to distribute your games – plus they have the technology and the desire to be on the cutting edge with new media – it really begs the question: why would you need your own network?” Swofford said. The agreement marks the first time the ACC has negotiated one contract to bundle broadcasting rights



PRINCETON, N.J. (AP) – National champion Duke and NCAA tournament teams Kansas State, Gonzaga and Marquette have been selected as the regional hosts for this year’s CBE Classic. There will be three teams in each of the four regionals and the hosts, regardless of winning or losing, will advance to the semifinals and finals, Nov. 22-23 in Kansas City, Mo., it was announced Thursday. Joining Duke in its regional are Princeton and Miami of Ohio; Kansas State hosts James Madison and Presbyterian; Marquette hosts Bucknell and Wisconsin-Green Bay; and Gonzaga hosts IUPUI and San Diego State. The teams not hosting will move to sites where they will all play three more games.

for football and basketball. The previous deal brought in an average of about $72 million in TV money annually, which the league distributes evenly among its 12 members – an average of about $6 million per school. By contrast, the ESPN deal would bring an average of $155 million in TV money per year, an average of more than $12.9 million per school. Those payouts don’t include money from bowl games, NCAA tournaments or any other revenue the league distributes to member schools.

Thursday’s announcement comes after 15 months of negotiations and a season in which league schools won a record eight national championships, with Duke’s NCAA title in men’s basketball marking the ACC’s fifth crown in 10 seasons. It also comes despite the national economic downturn and the recent possibility of widespread conference expansion and realignment – which ultimately amounted only to a handful of schools. “We have been stable, are stable, and I think this (deal) will enhance that,” Swofford said. In a conference call with reporters, ESPN executive vice president of content John Skipper said there are provisions in the agreement pertaining to future ACC realignment, though he said the deal would remain in place regardless of whether the league gained or lost schools. For football, ESPN would broadcast conferencecontrolled games – typically home nonconference or league matchups – on Saturdays, Thursday nights and Labor Day on one of its channels or online. ESPN would also carry the league’s championship game. In men’s basketball, the network would carry all league games in the same fashion. The deal would also include the entire women’s basketball tournament and more non-revenue sports. ESPN, which said some games would appear through its partnership with ABC, said there will also be some game simulcasts through its mobile service and there will no longer be local blackouts for games that are also being broadcast regionally.

NEW YORK (AP) – Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto and the New York Yankees outfielder Nick Swisher have been chosen by fans for the final roster spots for Tuesday’s All-Star game in Anaheim. Votto earned the 34th and final spot on the National League roster by beating out Washington third baseman Ryan Zimmerman, Colorado outfielder Carlos Gonzalez and Atlanta closer Billy Wagner in a four-day Internet vote. Padres reliever Heath Bell was a candidate before being named as an injury replacement on the NL squad. Swisher edged out Boston first baseman Kevin Youkilis for the final AL spot.

San Francisco’s Freddy Sanchez reaches but can not catch a ball hit by the Brewers’ Casey McGehee during the third inning of Thursday’s game in Milwaukee.

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) – Texas Rangers fan Tyler Morris said Thursday he’s thankful to be alive – and ready to attend another game – after tumbling about 30 feet from second-deck stands while trying to catch a foul ball. Morris, 25, said his face is swollen and his foot is in a brace after he suffered a fractured skull and sprained ankle at Tuesday night’s game. “Physically, I do hurt, but you know what? I’m very thankful. I’m progressing and I’ve gotten a lot of support from so many people,” Morris told The Associated Press by phone while a friend drove him home from the hospital. Morris said he remembers reaching for the foul ball that landed about four rows back and bounced toward him. But he said he misjudged how close he was to the railing and fell to the ground-level seats, landing on four people who suffered minor injuries. “I remember grabbing onto the rail ... and then falling,” he said. “The people under me may have taken the impact off. I’m sorry they were hurt, but if it weren’t for them, I may not be talking to you right now.” Morris said he was scared when he regained consciousness in the ambulance, because as a firefighter with the Lake Cities Fire Department near Dallas, he has responded to emergencies where people had fallen such distances and suffered severe injuries or had not survived. “It’s terrifying for someone who treats these injuries and knows the usual outcome,” Morris said. “My head was hurting so bad and I knew I had been unconscious for a long time.” Morris said he may be off work for up to 6 weeks, depending on how quickly his injuries heal. He called the incident a “100 percent, total accident that could have happened to anybody” and said he does not blame the Rangers or the ballpark. He said he was thrilled to meet Hall of Fame pitcher and team president Nolan Ryan, who gave Morris the foul ball during a hospital visit Wednesday. He said Ryan has invited him to more games. “I’m ready to go back,” Morris said.


Goydos shoots sizzling 59 SILVIS, Ill. (AP) – After four months of pretty lousy play on the PGA Tour, Paul Goydos managed to turn things around just a bit – he shot a 59. Out of nowhere. “Today was a nuclear bomb,” Goydos said. “I don’t know where it came from. If I knew that, I wouldn’t be able to touch it.” Perhaps just as amazing, Goydos held only one-stroke lead Thursday after an incredible opening round at the John Deere Classic. Defending champion Steve Stricker shot a 60, making for the two lowest scores ever in a single round at a PGA event. And he just missed tying Goydos on the last hole. With the par-71 TPC Deere Run course softened by three days of intermittent rain, a lot of golfers were expected to go low. But the fourth 59 in tour history and then a 60 on the same day? No one could have expected that. “You’re 12 back before you even step on the first tee. That’s tough to swallow,” Stricker said. “That’s why you’ve got to get into a little different thought process and get in your own little world and chip away.” “The course is ripe for scoring,” he added.” Michael Letzig, Matt Jones, Aaron Baddeley

and James Nitties all finished at 7-under 64. Jay Williamson, Daniel Chopra, Scott McCarron and Charley Hoffman had 65s. All paled in comparison with Goydos’ stunning 59. He has missed almost has many cuts as he’s made this year. He hasn’t had a top 40 finish since early May. He led the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am in February by a stroke with five holes to play, only to tumble out of contention with an quadruple-bogey 9 on No. 14. “I’ve been very good at playing poorly now for the last 10 tournaments or so,” Goydos said. Not anymore. His tee shots found the middle of the fairway. His approaches stuck on the green. And, most importantly, his putts found the middle of the cup again and again. Stricker’s almost did, too. His second shot on the par-4 18th bounced on the green and appeared to be heading for the cup. But it curled around at the last second, leaving him an easy 2-footer for the 11th birdie in his bogeyfree round. Goydos, who hasn’t won on the tour since 2007 and has just two victories overall, needed just 22 putts to dominate the soggy course.

Lang leads U.S. Women’s Open by one stroke OAKMONT, Pa. (AP) – Temperatures were in the 90s. Michelle Wie was in the 80s. On a demanding day when tough old Oakmont Country Club illustrated again that playing par golf can be an achievement, only Brittany Lang was in the 60s. Lang withstood Oakmont’s slick, sun-browned greens and the unrelenting heat to shoot a 2-under 69 on Thursday and take a one-shot lead over 2008 champion Inbee Park, amateur Kelli Shean and three others in the first round of the U.S. Women’s Open. Shean, a South Africa native who was pushed to become a world-class golfer by idol Ernie Els, and South Korea’s Park were joined at 1-under 70 by two other Korean golfers, M.J. Hur and Amy Yang.

Clarke cards 65 to lead Scottish Open LUSS, Scotland (AP) – Darren Clarke upstaged fellow Northern Irishman Graeme McDowell with a 6-under 65 to take a one-shot lead after the first round of the Scottish Open on Thursday. McDowell, returning to tournament golf and his European Tour roots for the first time since his win at the U.S. Open, shot a 71 on a blustery day at Loch Lomond. McDowell birdied his final two holes to finish alongside Phil Mickelson. One shot behind Clarke were England’s Graeme Storm and Italy’s Edoardo Molinari, who both shot 66 in milder morning weather, and Irishman Damien McGrane. John Daly, who won the British Open in 1995, was just two shots off the lead after a 67.


Paul Goydos tees off on the 17th hole during the first round of the John Deere Classic at TPC Deere Run in Silvis, Ill., on Thursday. Goydos became just the fourth golfer in PGA Tour history to shoot a 59. Goydos put together his 12-under, bogey-free round on the opening day of the tournament.

Gerald Ciolek of Germany was second and Norway’s Edvald Boasson Hagen took third place in a sprint finish. Yellow Jersey: Fabian Cancellara of Switzerland, who finished in the main pack. Defending champion Alberto Contador of Spain is ninth, 1:40 back, and seven-time champion Lance Armstrong remained 18th, 2:30 back. Quote of the Day: “It was definitely a stressful first four or five days, unlike anything I think we’ve seen.” – Armstrong on the opening stages, which saw multiple crashes and some injuries. Next stage: Today’s sixth stage is a long and mainly flat 141-mile route from Montargis to Guegnon that again favors sprinters. The race hits the mountains on Sunday.

Cavendish captures fifth stage of Tour de France MONTARGIS, France (AP) – Britain’s Mark Cavendish broke down in tears after winning the fifth stage of the Tour de France Thursday for his first victory in this year’s race. Defending champion Alberto Contador of Spain was 19th in the stage, and seven-time tour winner Lance Armstrong finished 30th. Cavendish, who won six stages last year and four in 2008, broke through on the mostly flat 116.3-mile trek from Epernay to Montargis. The main contenders for the overall title cruised home afterward in the pack, which clocked 4 hours, 30 minutes, 50 seconds. Fabian Cancellara retained the leader’s yellow jersey. Among the top contenders behind Cancellara, Cadel Evans of Australia holds third place, 39 seconds back, and last year’s runner-up Andy Schleck of Luxembourg is sixth, 1:09 back. Contador is ninth, 1:40 back, while Armstrong is 2:30 back in 18th. The 25-year-old Cavendish thrust his arms skyward and hugged teammates in the winner’s circle after beating Gerald Ciolek of Germany and Edvald Boasson Hagen of Norway. Cavendish had faded in a sprint finish in Wednesday’s stage won by Italy’s Alessandro Petacchi, and bared his frustration by hurling his bike after the fourth stage. “It’s incredible, it’s been a long time,” said Cavendish of his stage win. “Yesterday wasn’t that great for us. I let the guys down.” Cavendish has developed a reputation among some as a “bad boy” of cycling. He was fined by international cycling’s governing body,

UCI, this spring for making a hand gesture that was deemed unsuitable after he won a sprint finish in a Tour de Romandie stage. Breaking down during a TV interview, after holding his face in his hands, HTC Columbia rider Cavendish admitted the “pressure was immense,” said he had “been through a helluva lot,” and denied that he had thrown his bike down a day earlier. “I just want to thank all the people who supported me,” he said. With Cavendish pausing to cry, Cancellara came up and put his arm around him. “Sprints are never easy,” Cancellara said. “They’re psychologically very hard. Today, we saw a nice thing: After all the buzz around him – the young sprinter, the big mouth and all that – he’s a real sprinter.” Thor Hushovd of Norway, who wears the best sprinter’s green jersey that Cavendish covets, and who has had tensions with him in the past, said: “Good to see him back today after all the problems he’s had.” After crashing in Monday’s Stage 2 and puncturing a tire and losing time in the third stage on Tuesday, Armstrong turned his attention to keeping out of trouble in frenzied finishes like Thursday’s that play to sprinters’ strengths. He was instead looking ahead to the first mountain stage on Sunday. Riders embark on the longest stage of this year’s Tour for today’s Stage six, a 141.3-mile effort from Montargis to Gueugnon. The forecast is for humidity and temperatures of up to 95 degrees. The Tour ends on July 25 in Paris.

Small group of World Cup champs ready to open door JOHANNESBURG (AP) – The World Cup champions are an illustrious and exclusive bunch. Only seven countries belong, and just twice in the last 40 years have they welcomed anyone new. Well, start making way. On Sunday, there’s going to be another name on that list. Spain and the Netherlands are each seeking their first title in the World Cup final at Soccer City. The Dutch have had two cracks at it already, earning that dreaded “best team never to have won the World Cup” title after coming up short in 1974 and again four years later. Spain has had its own issues, underachieving at major tournaments for 44 long years before winning the European title two years ago. “The group deserves this, but we want more,” Spanish striker David Villa said. “Now we want to be champions.” For all the hype over the South Americans and hope about the teams from Africa, the final will be a Europeans-only party for a second straight World Cup. And few should really be surprised that it’s come down to Spain and the Netherlands. Spain is, of course, the reigning European champion, the game’s second-biggest title after the World Cup. It’s lost

just two matches since November 2006, and its playing style bears a striking resemblance to Barcelona, which has run roughshod on just about everyone the last few years. When it’s on, Spain is awe-inspiring. Its backline of Carles Puyol, Gerard Pique, Sergio Ramos and Joan Capdevila is more like a wall – and just try getting anything by goalkeeper Iker Casillas. Any team would be thrilled to have any one of Villa, Xabi Alonso, Xavi, Andres Iniesta, Fernando Torres or Cesc Fabregas, let alone all of them. Opponents know Spain’s game is based on possession and flow, and good luck trying to disrupt that. When someone does, the Spanish are like a swarm of bees until they get it back. Germany seemed to be the class of the World Cup after routing England and Argentina by a combined 8-1 in the knockout rounds. But the Germans had only a handful of chances in Wednesday night’s semifinal loss. The Dutch aren’t exactly slouches, though. They won all eight of their qualifying matches, and are perfect in South Africa, too. Not since Pele’s brilliant Brazil squad in 1970 has a squad had a chance at winning the World Cup with an unblemished record.

Jobless claims dip, but remain high WASHINGTON (AP) — New claims for unemployment benefits dropped sharply last week, a sign that layoffs could be slowing. At the same time, hundreds of thousands of Americans are losing jobless aid because Congress has yet to pass an extension of benefits. First-time requests for jobless aid dropped by 21,000 to a seasonally adjusted 454,000, the Labor Department said Thursday. The decline takes claims to their lowest level since early May, erasing the increases of the last two months. Still, claims have fluctuated wildly in the past several weeks and have not dropped below



Merck to close plants, research sites TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Drugmaker Merck & Co. said Thursday it is shutting down eight manufacturing plants and eight research sites around the world, including two domestic locations, in the latest phase in its strategic pruning of excess capacity. Beginning in the second half of this year, Merck will start transferring production from eight manufacturing plants to other factories. One is in Miami Lakes, Fla., a plant the company intends to sell. The other factories to be closed or sold include two in Europe, two in Mexico, two in South America and one in Singapore.

IMF calls for deficit cuts in United States WASHINGTON (AP) — The International Monetary Fund is calling for the United States to make a stronger effort to curb its budget deficits. The IMF said Thursday that in addition to cutting government spending, the Obama administration will have to consider raising taxes to get the U.S. deficit down to a manageable level.

Oil rises on upbeat economic news NEW YORK (AP) — Oil prices rose for a second day Thursday as two upbeat two economic reports pushed hopes higher for the economic recovery. Benchmark crude for August delivery rose 93 cents to $75 a barrel in midday trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange.


January levels. Elevated unemployment claims, along with last month’s weak jobs report and a struggling housing market, have economists worried the recovery is slowing. “While the report is good news, it would need to be followed up by several more weeks to suggest a pickup in hiring,” Julia Coronado, an economist at BNP Paribas, said in a note to clients. Even as first-time claims fall, the number of unemployed Americans receiving benefits is dropping sharply because their aid is ending. About 350,000 people saw their benefits cut off in the week of June 19 because Congress left for a

weeklong recess without extending federal jobless aid. The Labor Department estimates that about 1.7 million have lost benefits as of last week, after extended unemployment insurance expired in late May. Those numbers could reach 3.3 million by the end of the month if Congress doesn’t pass an extension when it returns from recess. During the recession, Congress added up to 73 weeks of extra benefits on top of the 26 weeks typically provided by states. But Senate Republicans have blocked efforts to continue those extra benefits, citing concerns over the deficit.

Mortgage rates hit 50-year low NEW YORK (AP) — Mortgage rates fell for the second straight week to the lowest point in five decades. But many people either don’t qualify for new mortgages or have already taken advantage of the low rates this year. As a result, the housing market and the broader economy may not benefit much from the lower rates. The average rate on a 30-year fixed mortgage dropped to 4.57 percent this week, mortgage company Freddie Mac reported Thursday. That’s down from the previous record low of 4.58 percent set last week. It’s the lowest since Freddie Mac began tracking rates in 1971. The last time rates were lower was in the 1950s, when most long-term home loans lasted just 20 or 25 years.

Rates have fallen over the past two months. Investors, concerned with the European debt crisis, have poured money into the safety of Treasury bonds. Treasury yields have fallen and so have mortgage rates, which tend to track yields on long-term Treasurys. However, low rates have yet to fuel home sales. The housing market has slowed since federal tax credits for homebuyers expired at the end of April. And the latest decline in mortgage rates is unlikely to boost the market. Mortgage rates have hovered near record lows for some time, so most people who can afford to buy homes or qualify to refinance their loans have already done so in the past 18 months.

Cautious shoppers bring modest gains to retailers NEW YORK (AP) — Stores steepened discounts more than planned in June to help drive recessionscarred customers into the malls to buy summer merchandise. But shoppers spent cautiously amid escalating job worries, resulting in modest gains for many merchants. The lackluster performance, being compared with a weak June 2009, is raising concerns about the back-to-school shopping season and the health of

the economic recovery. The International Council of Shopping Centers’ index of June retail sales rose 3 percent, the low end of its growth forecast that ranged from 3 to 4 percent. But that’s compared with a 5.1 percent decline in June 2009. The figures are based on revenue at stores open at least a year and are a key indicator of retailers’ health. The figures cover the period from May 30 through Saturday.

Stocks climb for third day NEW YORK (AP) — Investors are getting enthusiastic about stocks again after some reassuring news from the job market. Stocks rose for a third straight day Thursday on the Labor Department’s report of a larger than expected drop in the number of newly laid-off people seeking unemployment benefits. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 121 points after climbing 275 Wednesday and advancing modestly Tuesday. The 4.7 percent gain in that time is the Dow’s best three-day move since mid-May. Employment news has been the key driver behind the market’s moves during the past few weeks. Thursday’s news was a welcome change from a string of disappointing jobs reports, including the government’s June employment numbers, that have pounded stocks recently. The Labor Department said initial claims for jobless benefits fell last week to their lowest levels since early May. Claims fell to 454,000, better than the 465,000 forecast by economists polled by Thomson Reuters. The Dow rose 120.71, or 1.2 percent, to 10,138.99. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 9.98, or 0.9 percent, to 1,070.25, while the Nasdaq composite index rose 15.93, or 0.7 percent, to 2,175.40. The Dow jumped back above 10,000 Wednesday. Traders say the recent gains, which came after seven straight days of declines, were not tied to any one particular catalyst.

Rio Grande rises as new storm hits Texas border LAREDO, Texas (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The gentle stream that usually marks the Rio Grande bulged into a mighty river along much of its southern reach Thursday as a rain-packed tropical depression dumped on a TexasMexico border region already struggling with flooded homes and evacuations after last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hurricane. Authorities in Laredo evacuated several neighborhoods close to the river and a 16-story hotel on the banks as the river grew to 42-feet deep and water began to creep into some homes. The tropical depression-driven rains were expected to keep the water level high, said city spokeswoman Xochitl Mora Garcia.

Justice: Russians will release 4 in spy swap WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Russian government will release four people accused of betraying Russia to the West, the Justice Department said in a letter Thursday outlining the international spy swap. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The key provision of the United States-Russia agreement is that the Russian Federation has agreed to release four individuals who are incarcer-

ated in Russia for alleged contact with Western intelligence agencies,â&#x20AC;? said the letter to U.S. District Judge Kimba Wood in New York. Some of the Russian prisoners worked for the Russian military, and some worked for both the military and various Russian intelligence agencies. On the U.S. end of the spy swap, Wood ordered

10 defendants who admitted acting as Russian spies deported from the United States. The letter did not name the four, describing three of them as having been â&#x20AC;&#x153;convicted of treason in the form of espionage on behalf of a foreign powerâ&#x20AC;? and serving lengthy prison terms. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Russian prisoners have all served

a number of years in prison and some are in poor health,â&#x20AC;? the letter added. The family members of the four will leave with them for resettlement. Three of the four were accused by Russia of contacting Western intelligence agencies while they were working for the Russian or Soviet government, the letter stated.

First relief well could be complete by end of July THEODORE, Ala. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; BP and the federal government are offering a ray of hope in a summer of setbacks for crews trying to stop the gulf oil spill: The first of two relief wells could be done by the end of this month, weeks ahead of schedule. But officials are quick to say that meeting such an optimistic timetable would require ideal con-

ditions every step of the way, something that has rarely happened since the gusher began more than 21â &#x201E;2 months ago a mile below the waterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s surface. It would not be the first time that BPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s efforts to stop the leak have fallen short. So is BP setting itself up for failure again? â&#x20AC;&#x153;BPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s credibility is basically shot,â&#x20AC;? said Jef-

U.S. District Judge Joseph ruled in favor of gay couplesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; rights in two separate challenges to the Defense of Marriage Act, known as DOMA, a 1996 law that the Obama administration has argued for repealing. The rulings apply to Massachusetts.

Fed gay marriage ban ruled unlawful BOSTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The federal law banning gay marriage is unconstitutional because it interferes with the right of a state to define the institution and therefore denies married gay couples some federal benefits, a federal judge ruled Thursday in Boston.

Dudley told The Wall Street Journal.
