Raleigh’s Tommy Turner keeps his cool while waiting to run “Muscle Boat” in the Stock Eliminator class.

Crowd does its best to stay cool at drag races BY DARRICK IGNASIAK ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – While some people may have stayed clear of the Lucas Oil Oak Hollow Drag Boat Races because of the heat, those who attended the event over the three days in near 100-degree temperatures found several ways to cool off. “We’ve got two misting stations, which have been a huge hit,” said Ken Dollar, series director of the Lucas Oil Drag Boat Racing Series. Aside from the misting stations, dozens of umbrellas could be seen as residents tried to cool off from the sun on the banks of Festival Park. Racing fans also brought fans and towels, and many sought water bottles. Richmond, Va., resident Kevin Kilgour Sr. attended all three days of the event. Shortly after


By the 1920s, North Carolina had achieved the reputation for having more illicit distilleries than any other state. Liquor became an important cargo for the skillful drivers who moved it, and bootlegging also contributed to part of NASCAR’s legendary roots.

which was the same amount as last year’s event. Because of the heat, the High Point Jaycees had to order another 6,000 pounds. “The ice is to keep everything cold,” Green said. “A lot of it goes down to the volunteers down on the ramp, over in the EMT section, as well as for the boat drivers.” Green said the Jaycees had some volunteers who got lightheaded from the heat, but all were fine. “A couple of people got a little flush and a little hot,” he said. “We parked them, put some ice on them, and they were ready to go.” Art Robertson, a vendor who sold steak and cheese sandwiches, sausages and pork tenderloin sandwiches, also had to stay cool. “We have to stay very hydrated,” Robertson said. “We have gone through cases and cases of Gatorade and water.”

HIGH POINT – The former Wesleyan Homes apartments will reopen this fall as High Point University student housing. North College Station will house as many as 300 students in two groups of renovated apartments. Last year, HPU purchased the apartments at 900 Eastchester Drive to expand student housing. The renovated North College Townhomes and North College Terrace offer studio and single and double apartments for juniors and seniors, said Chris Dudley, HPU vice president for administration. “These will be in the mid range of the accommodations we offer on campus,” Dudley said. North College Terrace is a three-story apartment building, and North College Townhomes has the studio apartments. All apartments have full kitchens, a washer and dryer, a living room and upgraded cable and Internet service. “Those residents will

HPU students to move into apartment complex BY DAVID NIVENS ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

using the misting station Sunday, Kilgour said he made sure he had ice water, Gatorade and got cool often during the three days. “The guys working out there in the fields, we have been telling them to come in and get cool and take a few moments to get out of the heat,” said Kilgour, whose son, Kevin Kilgour Jr., is a boat racer. “We are doing everything we can to watch out over everybody here.” Aaron Harris, an Atlanta resident, attended the boat races Sunday with his wife, Portrice, and their three children, Aerial, Alfonza and Destiny. The family sat under a tent, had water bottles and a fan. “We are from Georgia, so this is cooler than what’s in Georgia,” Aaron Harris said. “We are OK.” Jordan Green, a High Point Jaycees co-chairman for the Lucas Oil Oak Hollow Drag Boat Races, said his group initially ordered 14,000 pounds of ice for the event,

Students will pay an additional $1,500 a year to live in the apartments, according to posted rates. After the complex opens, HPU will have 3,000 students living on campus, Dudley said.

Wesleyan Arms residents will move to Providence Place facilities at Westchester Drive when Providence Place finishes work on an $8 million replacement facility to be ready by October 2011. “There are no plans yet to do anything with that property,” Dudley said. “We want those residents to be taken care of first.” There have been 69 residents in assisted living and 23 in the life estate residences at Wesleyan Arms. | 888-3626

Several NC cities hit record high temperatures RALEIGH (AP) – Several North Carolina cities have set new record high temperatures. The National Weather Service said Raleigh broke a 61-year-old record with a reading of 102 degrees Fahrenheit on Sunday. The previous high for July 25 was 98 degrees in 1949. In Charlotte, temperatures reached 101, eclipsing the previous record of 100 degrees set in 1987. New Bern was a little

cooler at 97 degrees, but that surpassed the record of 96 degrees set there in 1949. Forecasters say the heat is the result of a high pressure system that has brought in warm, moist air from the Southwest. But there is relief on the horizon. A cold front was forecast to move through central North Carolina Sunday night, bringing a welcome 10-degree drop in temperatures next week.

Ministries reopen women’s shelter in Greenville GREENVILLE (AP) – Once Lost Now Found always seemed to be a fitting name for the halfway house on Ninth Street. It was an apparent biblical reference to the prodigal son in the New Testament book of Luke who squandered his inheritance with reckless living before returning to his father. But the name took on a somewhat different meaning this spring, when the home for women recovering from substance abuse closed its doors. Last week, the home got a second chance as three women moved in to begin taking steps toward rehabilitation. Now known as God’s Hope House 118, it will provide shelter for seven women who have been addicted, homeless or in prison. The house, which will continue a Christianbased recovery program similar to that of Once Lost Now Found, will be operated by volunteers from God’s Love and Certain Hope ministries. The two ministries – one which provides furniture and clothing to the needy, the other an outreach to west Greenville – had initially planned to collaborate on another project: a recovery home for men. Directors Trudy Halstead and Walter Strathy

had begun efforts to purchase the Flynn Christian Fellowship Home, a 17-bed facility that was placed on the market last summer due to financial struggles, when the women’s home came to their attention. “When I learned in April that the woman that ran that house was go-

Now known as God’s Hope House 118, it will provide shelter for seven women who have been addicted, homeless or in prison. ing to give it up, I didn’t want that to happen,” said Emily Rouse, a longterm volunteer for Once Lost Now Found. “So I went to Walter and to Trudy and said, ‘This is what’s happening. What can we do?’ ” By May they had taken steps to take over the lease on the Ninth Street property. Then, without hosting a fundraiser, naming a board of directors or even crafting a formal mission statement, the ministries

began recruiting volunteers for the hasty renovation needed to get the house ready for its new residents on July 1. “If we waited to get the money to open this house, what’s going to happen to these girls that are struggling right now?” Halstead asked. “Where are they going to be? I just have to walk by faith and pray for God’s provision because that’s where it’s all coming from anyway.” She asked God for someone to help spruce up the place to make it warm and inviting to its new residents. Greenville interior designer Jennifer Elmore was an answer to that prayer. Elmore had kept Halstead’s card in her desk drawer since donating some items to God’s Love ministry at Christmas. Two months ago, Elmore had a mysterious yet overwhelming urge to call Halstead’s number. “I called her and I said, ‘Trudy, do you need for me to help you with anything? For some reason, God’s just telling me to call you,’ ” Elmore said. “She started crying. She said, ‘We have been praying; we just got this house.’ ”

County moves workers to leased space ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

GUILFORD COUNTY – Guilford Center workers moved this week to leased space in Greensboro as repairs continue on the fire-damaged Edgeworth Building. Center Director Billie Martin Pierce said that the agency moved 44 administrative and management workers to 404-A N. Eugene St., Greensboro. Other staff members, dislocated by the May 9 electrical fire, will remain in offices

Guilford Center is the county’s management agency responsible for oversight of public mental health, developmental disabilities and substance abuse services. The center also operates from High Point offices at 211 S. Centennial St. The Guilford Center’s toll-free Health Call Center numbers – (800) 853-5163 and (866) 518-6778 (TTY) – remain fully operational.

‘Corpse flower’ bloom could stink up Texas wedding HOUSTON (AP) – The flower girl at Jessica Zabala’s wedding is purple, six-feet-tall, uninvited and smells like dead bodies. She is Lois, a rare “corpse flower,” deemed the world’s stinkiest bud. Lois is unexpectedly blooming in the Houston Museum of Natural Science, in the room

right next to where Zabala is marrying Jonathan Smith on Saturday. “I don’t need a florist anymore,” Zabala laughs. “I’ve got Lois.” The flower is an Amorphophallus titanum, which has only ever bloomed 29 times in the United States. It’s happened twice in Tex-


as, but never before at the museum’s Cockrell Butterfly Center, which hosts about 50 weddings a year. “I did not know that Lois was quietly sprouting in the greenhouse across the street,” Zabala said, donning an “I Love Lois” button given to her by the museum.

Father seeks answers in son’s training death FAYETTEVILLE (AP) – Pfc. Norman Murburg III was last seen alive at 7:21 a.m. June 9, 2008, after having successfully located his first point during a land navigation course that is part of Special Forces Assessment and Selection training. The soldier who last saw Murburg thought he looked dehydrated and tried to activate Murburg’s tracking beacon to call for help, officials told Murburg’s father. But Murburg – who went by the nickname Ehren – wasn’t about to stop. He convinced his fellow soldier that he was OK, then continued on the course. Twenty-one hours later, 19-year-old Ehren Murburg’s body was found leaning against a tree in the Hoffman Training Area near Fort Bragg. His father, Tampa lawyer Mike Murburg, was devastated. Mike Murburg said he assumed that a heat wave that brought 100-degree temperatures and high humidity to southeastern North Carolina was to blame. “My suspicion right from the get-go was that my son had died from a heat stroke combined with dehydration,� he said.

So it came as a surprise when, months later, an autopsy listed the cause of death as a snakebite, most likely from a water moccasin. Ehren, his father said, knew better than to be bitten by a snake. The two were avid hunters and fishers, Mike Murburg said. “My son knew water moc-

Mike Murburg later discovered there were two autopsies. One noted discoloration and bite marks on his son’s hands. The other made no mention of those findings. Mike Murburg suspected

something was amiss. His interest was further piqued when he began making requests for records using the Freedom of Information Act. That’s when he found out that, while one investigation into his son’s death had closed, another – by the Army Criminal Investigation Command – was ongoing. On Memorial Day 2009, an article in the St. Petersburg Times about Mike Murburg’s struggles caught the attention of Bev Young and her husband, Congressman Bill Young of Florida. “Without his involvement, I don’t know where we’d be today,� said Murburg. With Young’s help, the secretary of the Army became involved, and another investigation began. That investigation ended earlier this month, when four high-ranking Army officials went to Murburg’s ranch near Dade City. The Army now lists Ehren Murburg’s cause of death as undetermined, and officials said they may never know what killed him. “There were a lot of shortcomings in the investigation,� Mike Murburg said he was told. “You had a medical examiner that essentially went rogue.�

We need leaders who will put America first Our nation is in a real dangerous situation. The federal government is not protecting our nation. Arizona should be suing the federal government for the cost of enforcing an existing federal law. I am not against legal immigration. But illegals come to our country, do not pay taxes, yet they can get more benefits than an American citizen that paid into the system for 50 years. They can get welfare, free health care, food stamps, housing, etc. President Obama wants America to export more products to help balance the trade deficit. Please tell me what we manufacture in America anymore? And how many people are still laughing at Ross Perot and the giant sucking sound he warned us about when our Democrats and Republicans passed NAFTA and called it so great? Perot was right. It is hard to even find a light bulb made in America anymore. We give foreign aid to countries that hate us and want to destroy us and our way of life. They come into our country and want to change our way of life. If they liked their way of life better than ours, why didn’t they stay home? The same road that brought them here will take them back. The most ridiculous thing is that our government thinks we should speak their language to communicate with them better. I am at home; I speak English. If they want to communicate with me, speak English. We are being invaded and if we do not get leaders with common sense that put America first, we are in deep trouble. We need to get rid of the idiot politicians we have in Washington, our states and local governments. W. MARSHALL WEAVIL Lexington

Only the ‘church party’ represents God Heaven (made for man) or hell (made for sinful man), will inherit all mankind, male, female, all “parties,” “colors,” “religions,” “nationalities” and denominations. “Race,” “racism,” “religion” and the power of “money,” are trump cards in Satan’s political forces of denial, denying, and the delusion, “no,” (not God nor man) for mankind to operate in the provoking destruction of one another. These four cards have been in operation since Adam



and Eve sinned. Jesus on Calvary disabled these sins only by faith to confess with your mouth and believe in your heart (old natural birth) that God resurrected Jesus from “His” death (spiritual sleep), you will be born again (new spiritual birth). We all are born of natural spirits (male to female – flesh), when we except Jesus Christ in the spirit, we become spiritual “spirits” (renewed minds and hearts). The old nature (man-woman) has to put on the new nature so we become unable instead of enabled to be tormented, terrorized, and tricked by the wiles of Satan (majestic magical allusions). The only party that represents God is the “church party” (body of Jesus Christ), all other parties are organized by Satan and his fallen angels (man-constituted). God has become the co-pilot (aid to the guide) for the church instead of the pilot (guided by Jesus Christ). The church has been the voice of “closet thinking” (private chamber theories), instead of the source for righteous, justice and truth “reasoning” by “purpose”! The only option left and right for the people are false negatives and a positive willingness to control others while being out of control themselves (politics). The “seed” (Jesus Christ) of the church “Christians,” are aborting the true foundation of America. Sin is always manifested in the hearts and minds (interior), rather than appearances on the surface (exterior)! JAMES R. RICKS JR. Trinity



We must defend our inheritance to keep it BY BILL MICHAL


any married couples and individuals in and near High Point were the beneficiaries of a priceless inheritance from their parents. In most cases, this treasure had actually been in their families for many generations. Not wanting to devote the time or effort necessary to protect and manage their inheritance, they made a contract with a smooth-talking man of dubious background who had no discernible track record in his chosen field and no reliable references. Almost immediately, many very troubling signs began to appear. His inexperience clearly revealed itself in myriad ways. His carefully-selected henchmen were soon exposed to have backgrounds even darker-than-dubious. The leader of this “team” began spending lavishly on travel and luxuries. Soon he was caught in multiple obvious lies which he made little effort to refute. Shortly thereafter, he even began to flagrantly ignore all complaints and input from the owners of the inheritance. Then irrefutable evidence surfaced that he and his cronies were aggressively squandering the assets of the inheritance. Some credible evidence even

began to appear that the squandering was not just a by-product of their inadequacies but might indeed be their fundamental intent. Amazingly, despite all of these flagrant warning signs, the owners steadfastly refused to listen to wise counsel provided by multiple sources and they never even investigated the evidence. Too busy with their daily lives, they did not even stop to really consider them. “Besides,” they assured themselves, “our inheritance was so great that it could never disappear.” Their blissful ignorance soon came to a shocking end. Do you know any of these local citizens? The only clue readers should need to interpret this parable is that the inheritance they lost was their freedom. These foolish, careless individuals have well-earned a Samuel Adams rebuke made in the Revolutionary War era: “If you love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude (better) than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace.

Chewing up the innocent and spewing racism


ast week, the conservative outrage machine tried to chew up Shirley Sherrod. You are familiar with that machine if you have access to the Internet or Fox News. As the name implies, it exists to stoke and maintain a state of perpetual apoplexy on the political right by feeding it a never-ending stream of perceived sins against conservative orthodoxy. While the machine will use any available fuel (health care, immigration, Muslims) to manufacture fury, it has a special fondness for race. Specifically, for stories that depict the God-fearing white conservative as a victim of oppression. So Sherrod must have seemed a godsend to blogger Andrew Breitbart. Last Monday, he posted an excerpted video of Sherrod, an African-American employee of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, telling a NAACP audience how she once hesitated, because he was white, to help a farmer stave off bankruptcy. “Evidence of racism,” Breitbart sniffs righteously in an accompanying post. Except that it wasn’t.

“After” the NAACP pronounced the video appalling, “after” Bill O’Reilly called her words unacceptable, and “after” the USDA OPINION demanded her resignation (all have Leonard since apologized) Pitts the truth came out, ■■■ via the full video. It turns out Sherrod is a daughter of Baker County, Ga., which she describes as having been the sort of proudly unreconstructed place where a black man might be murdered by a white one and despite three witnesses, the grand jury would decline to indict. In 1965, Sherrod’s father was that black man, one of many. So there she is in 1986, working at a nonprofit agency established to help farmers, and in comes this white farmer she finds condescending. She didn’t do all she could’ve for him, she told the audience. Instead, she handed him off to a white lawyer, figuring one of “his own kind” would take care of him.

Which would indeed be appalling and unacceptable, except that when the white lawyer failed to help that farmer, Sherrod resolved to help him herself, to overcome the bitterness and bias of her own heart. That farmer credits her with saving his farm. Breitbart used a snippet of video to misrepresent her as a black bureaucrat bragging of how she stuck it to the white man. Sherrod’s point was actually about reconciliation, redemption, learning to embrace the wholeness of humanity. Invited by CNN to explain the dissonance between his video and the truth, Breitbart chose instead to reiterate his charge of “racist” sentiment. For Breitbart, the video was an attempt to embarrass the NAACP, because it recently passed a resolution denouncing racist elements in the Tea Party movement. This is not about Sherrod, he insisted, though she might beg to differ. In the interview, Breitbart came across as not overly concerned with “truth,” and much less with racial injustice, except insofar as it can be used to further his cause.


And isn’t it telling how often conservatives will discover their burning concern over race just when it becomes useful to them? We saw this last year. In a nation where one state may soon require Latinos to show their papers, conservatives hyperventilated over the “racism” of Sonia Sotomayor extolling the virtues of a “wise Latina.” Now, against the backdrop of an Agriculture Department that long ago admitted to decades of discrimination against black farmers, Breitbart weeps over the “racism” of Shirley Sherrod refusing to assist a white farmer – right up until she did. It is probably useless to say Breitbart should be ashamed. There is little evidence he possesses the ability. But Sherrod is pondering a defamation suit, and a judgment in her favor might help him fix that defect. May she win big. And may the outrage machine choke on the bill.

Taliban claim to capture American sailor, kill another



US holds drills; Pyongyang talks war ABOARD USS GEORGE WASHINGTON – Fighter jets and a flotilla of U.S. and South Korean warships led by a nuclearpowered U.S. supercarrier began exercises that have enraged North Korea. The country’s capital Pyongyang sees it as a “unpardonable provocation” as a rehearsal for an invasion. The U.S. keeps 28,500 troops in South Korea.

Demolished crowd barriers are lying in the tunnel in Duisburg, Germany, Sunday, where more than a dozen died in a stampede at Saturday’s Love Parade music festival.

Shock lingers after 19 trampled at German festival DUISBURG, Germany (AP) – Throngs of techno fans followed the floats, the dancers and the throbbing music to the festival venue: an old freight railway station that local media estimated could handle 300,000 people. German media reported that as many as 1.4 million people showed up to the Love

Parade, where a mass panic Saturday left 19 people crushed to death and 342 injured. Police blamed organizers and officials in Duisburg, an industrial city that gave the world’s largest techno music festival a home after it was driven from Berlin because of noise and overcrowding. Witnesses, however,

blamed police and private security staff, saying the panic broke out after they closed the end of a tunnel‚ the only entrance to the festival grounds‚ when the venue became too full. Police denied that and said they actually opened a second exit to disperse the masses before the accident happened.

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) – The Taliban claimed Sunday that they killed a U.S. sailor and kidnapped another as NATO forces ramped up a massive search for the servicemen, who went missing two days earlier in an area held by the militants. The coalition force set up checkpoints and distributed fliers with the sailors’ pictures and are offering thousands of dollars in rewards for their return. There were conflicting reports about whether the body of one of the two had been recovered. U.S. and NATO officials confirmed that two

American Navy personnel went missing Friday in the eastern province of Logar, after an armored sport utility vehicle was seen driving into a Taliban-held area. NATO officials were unable to say what they were doing in such a dangerous part of eastern Afghanistan. Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid also said the pair drove into an area under insurgent control, prompting a brief gunfight in which one American was killed and the other was captured. He said both were taken to a “safe area” and “are in the hands of the Taliban.”

more than 100 missile strikes in Pakistan’s semiautonomous tribal area along the Afghan border over the past several years. Most of them have targeted militants in North and South Waziristan, important sanctuaries for Afghan and Pakistani Taliban fighters.

Ex-CIA chief: Strike on Iran more likely now



WASHINGTON (AP) – A former CIA director says military action against Iran now seems more likely because no matter what the U.S. does diplomatically, Tehran keeps pushing ahead with its suspected nuclear program. Michael Hayden, a CIA chief under President George W. Bush, says during his tenure a strike was “way down the list� of options. But he tells CNN’s “State of the Union� that such action

Ex-R. Kelly lawyer to close for Blagojevich CHICAGO – Sam Adam Jr. made his name with a fire-and-brimstone style at Chicago’s grim, gritty Criminal Courts Building, where his decisive closing arguments once helped acquit R&B singer R. Kelly on child pornography charges. The 37-year-old defense attorney will try to work the same magic today, closing for Rod Blagojevich at the ousted governor’s corruption trial. But he will do it – for the first time in his career – at the Dirksen Federal Building, a more staid atmosphere where many believe Adam’s theatrics and booming rhetoric can’t win.

Race vendors report ‘steady’ business




HIGH POINT – As vendors reported steady sales on the last day of the Lucas Oil Oak Hollow Drag Boat Races, organizers had different views of how many people attended the three-day event. For the second consecutive year, Lucas Oil served as the anchor sponsor while the High Point Jaycees organized portions of the event including beer sales, food vendors and parking, said Jordan Green, the High Point Jaycees cochairman for the Lucas Oil Oak Hollow Drag Boat Races. “It’s tough to say,” Green said Sunday when asked how sales for the event have been. “It doesn’t look like a big crowd mostly because of the heat. We’ve sold a whole lot more water than we have beer.” Ken Dollar, series director for the of the Lucas Oil Drag Boat Racing Series, said he hadn’t reviewed the numbers, but he thought attendance was “good.” While the event attracted about 5,000 people last year, Dollar said Sunday that he still thinks this year’s three-day event will meet his goal of 15,000 race fans. Green said Lucas Oil gets 100 percent of the gate sales because the company is the promoter and puts up the purse. The High Point Jaycees gets 70 percent of its vendor sales while Lucas Oil receives the other 30 percent, according to Green. “(Final sales) will be impossible to tell right now until we do our final count (Sunday night),” he said. “This will be our big day, so this is when we will know whether we made a killing or just made a little bit or broke even. If we made $50,000 for the Jaycees, that would be a huge success. All of that money would be funneled back into the charities we support.” Along with the High Point Jaycee’s beverage tents, two other vendors were at the event. “It’s been pretty steady,” said Madison resident Jimmy Hill, whose father owns Frank’s Peanuts. “It started off kind of slow. The heat has kind of kept people from coming out ... I’m not making a lot of money, but it’s not about that. It’s about selling a quality product.” Art Robertson, a vendor who sold steak and cheese sandwiches, sausages and pork tenderloin sandwiches, also reported steady traffic. “It’s steady,” Robertson said. “We are not complaining at all. Considering the heat, it’s pretty neat that we have stayed as steady as we have been. It’s been a good turnout so far this year.” Angela Nasouluk, general manager of the Biltmore Suites Hotel, said Sunday that her hotel was sold out Friday night due to the boat races. On Saturday night, Biltmore Suites Hotel, which served as the official hotel sponsor for the event, was almost at complete capacity. Comfort Inn in Archdale and The Courtyard by Marriott on Mall Loop Road in High Point on Sunday reported minimal impact from the boat races. | 888-3657


Janie SInk, (left) Fairgrove Family Resource Center board member, and Terri Nelson, executive director, say more teams are needed for the upcoming Howard Hayes Fore the Families Golf Tournament at Winding Creek golf course in Thomasville.

Fore a good cause Organizers of Fore the Family Golf Tournament say teams are needed BY DARRICK IGNASIAK ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

DAVIDSON COUNTY – With less than two weeks before the Howard Hayes Fore the Families Golf Tournament, Terri Nelson issued a plea last week for the community’s help with her nonprofit’s annual fundraiser. “We just need support,” said Nelson, executive director of the Fairgrove Family Resource Center. “Our goal is to serve families and help them through crisis situations. We are in a stage where this tournament is a crisis situation. We really need to have the dedication of the community to support us. “Last month was the second highest we have ever had in serving through our food pantry,” Nelson added. “It was a near record last month. The needs are up and of course donations are down, which makes it more critical that our fundraisers are successful.” The golf tournament is scheduled for Aug. 4, with registration ending July 30. The tournament is named after Hayes, a former teacher and football coach in Davidson County. “(Hayes) is one of the most dedicated board members we have ever had and he loves golf,” Nelson

All proceeds will benefit the Fairgrove Family Resource Center. “We have different levels of sponsorship,” Nelson said. “If a business would like to be a gold sponsor, that’s $500 and they get a four player team. A silver sponsor is $250 and a bronze sponsor is $100. So far, registration is down, Nelson said, adding that eight

teams have registered as of Wednesday. Cash prizes will be awarded if the tournament gets 18 teams registered. Fairgrove Family Resource Center hopes to have 25 teams. “We just want to raise a lot of money,” said Janie Sink, a Fairgrove Family Resource Center board member. “Every bit of the money we make goes right back into the community. With the sinking economy and as it continues to get more worse, it seems like our food pantries are getting more and more depleted.” | 888-3657



Zoo awards contract for habitat expansion ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

ASHEBORO – The N.C. Zoological Park has hired Hendrick Construction Inc. to build five barns and expand the North Carolina Zoo’s 37-acre African Plains habitat. The project includes a rhinoceros barn, three hoof-stock barns and a treatment barn with connected paddocks and animal holding facilities. Hendrick Construction will also repair the exhibit’s existing barns and complete the associated site work. The buildings will house rhinoceroses, gazelles, antelope and other plains animals. The 11-acre expansion will feature extensive wood- and vinylcoated fencing, as well as indigenous turf, plants and landscaping to control erosion and mimic the animals’ natural environments. “This project is next to occupied corrals and paddock areas, and the animals are very

sensitive to heavy vibrations, loud noises and other distractions found on typical construction sites,” said Jon Hattaway, project manager for Hendrick Construction. “Our work will require careful planning and consideration so we don’t disrupt their daily routines.” Designed by Raleigh, N.C.based Schema Architecture, the facilities incorporate a mix of construction techniques, including pre-engineered metal buildings with standing-seam roofs, a steel-pole barn, concrete masonry units and castin-place concrete walls. “This is our second project for the zoo, and it’s unique for us because the primary users of the buildings are animals,” said Dave Hardin, project manager for Schema. “Our structural engineer had the biggest challenge, since part of his scope included making one of the barns rhino-proof.”


The treatment barn will be the new headquarters for the African Plains keepers, complete with office and meeting space. The building will also feature space for minor veterinarian procedures, recovery stalls, nursery stalls, an animal food preparation area and a special workspace for restraining antelope without the stress and risk of chemical immobilization. “The treatment barn will provide for our antelope medical needs and complement our anticipated growth in numbers,” said Guy Lichty, curator of mammals at the zoo. The three new hoof-stock barns will include community stalls, keeper areas, feed storage and isolation stalls. The barns also will incorporate translucent wall panels to allow for natural light.

SC expands bear hunting limit COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) – South Carolina wildlife officials are increasing the number of bears that hunting parties can kill because of an increase in the bear population. The Natural Resources Department told The State of Columbia that the number of bears a hunting party can take has been increased to five from three, but individual hunters are still limited to one bear per season. Natural Resources officials said the number of black bears in South Carolina has gotten so large that the animals are boldly looking for food in residential areas. Black bears can get up to 600 pounds. “All our indicators are that we have a very healthy bear population,� said Tom Swayngham, a supervisor with the state Natural Resources Department. Natural Resources Department officials also can expand the two-week lateOctober hunting season to areas outside the state’s three mountain counties of Greenville, Pickens and Oconee where most of the state’s bears live. Last year, hunters bagged 92 bears – the most ever recorded in a season. That previous high was 58 killed in 2007.

National Park Service fights uphill battle against development along Blue Ridge Parkway ASHEVILLE (AP) – Stowed in the Blue Ridge Parkway archives are more than 850 architectural drawings from the 1930s depicting every curving mile of the scenic road, down to where wildflowers would be planted, picnic tables placed and trees cut to open panoramic mountain vistas. Viewed this way, as a 469-milelong garden whose meandering path is a two-lane highway, the Blue Ridge Parkway is the largest landscape architecture project in the history of the United States. Seventy-five years after construction started, the parkway’s collective gardener, the National Park Service, struggles to keep the forest and the development beyond it from closing in. Though the parkway passes through four national forests and other protected land as it stretches from the Shenandoah National Park in Virginia to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in North Carolina, two-thirds of the land adjacent to the road is privately held. On much of that, nothing prevents a landowner from building a house or a condominium complex or clear-cutting the trees in plain view of one of the nation’s most-visited parks. “You have no idea a piece of land is privately held until the owner goes and builds something there,� says Rusty Painter, land protection director for the Conserva-

tion Trust of North Carolina, one of several lands trusts that have worked for years to protect the parkway “viewshed� by purchasing adjacent land or negotiating conservation easements. “You might have 10 acres of protected land, but it only takes 1 acre with one giant house on it to essentially destroy the integrity of that view,� Painter said. Over the years, the Conservation Trust has worked with other land trusts and government agencies to protect more than 30,000 acres along the Parkway. This year, the organization is pushing a bill introduced in both houses of Congress that would appropriate $75 million over five years to buy land and easements for 50,000 additional highpriority acres along the parkway. Even on land over which it does have control, the Park Service is at a disadvantage. A decade of tight budgets has forced the loss of about a third of the parkway’s maintenance staff, leaving 80 people to mow the grassy shoulders, trim the trees, keep up the campgrounds and tend the historic buildings. Seasonal employees and a legion of volunteers help, but in some places overlooks are completely blocked by overgrown trees, and sections of road were closed into the spring because of winter rockslides that had to cleared. “It really makes the operation more challenging,� says Phil Fran-

cis, parkway superintendent. On the parkway’s 75th anniversary, the view has other threats, too. Especially where it comes close to urban areas – Asheville and Blowing Rock and Roanoke and Wintergreen, Va. – trespasses by adjacent landowners is a problem. Neighbors have cut parkway trees to improve the views from their porches, built driveways, sheds or garages on parkway land or used it to dump trash. In more rural areas, professional poachers have illegally harvested so much galax, black cohosh and ginseng off parkway lands that local, legal hunters are unable to find the plants to sell. Natural pests harass the parkway; the woolly adelgid is busy killing Fraser firs at higher elevations. Smog has helped diminish ridgetop views in some areas by as much 80 percent since the road was built. But the biggest problem, Francis says, is protecting the parkway views, those carefully imagined landscapes painted in the minds of long-ago architects and brought to life through the windshields of as many as 20 million visitors a year. If too many of those pristine views are lost, visitors have said in surveys, they’ll stop coming. They will stop spending their money in the hotels and rental cabins, restaurants, gift shops and attractions that bring an estimated $2.3 billion a year to communities near the parkway in the two states.

Perdue keeps revenue options open RALEIGH (AP) – A day after Gov. Beverly Perdue signed into law a bill banning video sweepstakes games, she suggested she’d listen to proposals to legalize video poker again in North Carolina. And after Perdue signed a bill designed to reform the state Alcoholic Beverage Control system, she said she still was interested in privatizing parts of the liquor system, although the idea was panned before this year’s session began. An outside evaluation of the system is moving ahead. “I am not through with the ABC system yet,� Perdue said. So why stir the pot for a pair of politically charged issues like alcohol and gambling? She could believe that heavily regulation of video gaming, which has kept

popping up in new forms in North Carolina since a 2006 ban on traditional video poker machines, is the best way to control it. But her willingness may be the result of the harsh fiscal realities state government may face for the third year in a row. With a shortfall already projected to exceed more than $3 billion beginning in mid2011, Perdue doesn’t want to close any avenue that could generate new state revenues. Video poker and ABC privatization could bring in several hundred million dollars. While Senate leader Marc Basnight, D-Dare, and House Speaker Joe Hackney, D-Orange, strongly oppose video poker, about two dozen House members declined to support the sweepstakes ban when it was approved earlier this month.

A huge shortfall could help bring more support for legalizing video poker if sweepstakes games owner find another way to get around a ban. Bill Brooks with the North Carolina Family Policy Council is puzzled why Perdue would even consider giving video poker a new foothold in North Carolina. “Every governor wants to make their mark,� Brooks said. “Maybe Gov. Perdue wants to be known for gambling.� As for the ABC system, selling or leasing a chunk of the ABC system to an outside group seemed dead this spring. “The system has been a good system overall and we would like to keep it that way,� said Al Brown, a Concord city council member who opposes privatization.

NC man, girlfriend plead guilty to robbing 3 banks MOBILE, Ala. (AP) – A North Carolina man and his girlfriend have pleaded guilty to a bank robbery spree across Alabama last March. Court documents show the duo – Jerry Hover Tinsley of Rutherfordton and Rhianna Marie Jones of California – admitted last week to robbing banks in Flomaton, Florala and East Brewton. Prosecu-

tors have offered Jones a lesser sentence if she helps police with the case. Tinsley’s attorney, Christ Coumanis, described his client as a “Bonnie-and-Clyde-type couple� with drug problems. Police say that the couple stole about $9,500 total from the banks between March 4 and March 17.

Boy Scouts celebrate 100th anniversary in Virginia RICHMOND, Va. (AP) – The Boy Scouts of America are preparing to celebrate its 100th anniversary with the national jamboree at Fort A.P. Hill, about an hour south of the nation’s capital. More than 46,000 Boy Scouts, leaders, staff and volunteers from around the world are expected at the 2010 National Scout Jamboree starting today in Caroline County. Organizers also anticipate around 250,000 visitors. Tents will help transform the 76,000-acre base into the state’s seventh or eighth largest city. For 10 days, Scouts ages 12 to 18 will spend their time participating in archery, fishing and other events like geocaching, a GPS-based scav-

enger hunt. Other events include skeet shooting, robotics and a chance for Scouts to analyze a sample of their own DNA. The Boy Scouts have held the event at the Army base every four years since 1981, but it skipped a year so the event could mark the organization’s 100th anniversary. The group has hosted the gathering since 1937. “The jamboree is kind of the crown jewel of the 100th anniversary, so it’s a big deal for us,� said director Larry Pritchard. “For the Scouts, I think the important thing is that this is kind of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to do something that’s bigger than anything you’ve ever been a part of. ... It gives them

a chance to put their Boy Scout citizenship training to use.� The event traditionally features a presidential address, but Pritchard said President Barack Obama will address Scouts with a video message. Defense Secretary Robert Gates is scheduled to speak during the event. The 2005 event was marred by tragedy when four Boy Scout leaders were fatally electrocuted when the center pole of a large tent they were erecting touched overhead electrical lines. The deaths also were followed by days of intense heat that sickened more than 300 Scouts and visitors. Organizers have taken extra precautions to help those in attendance to stay safe in the hot temperatures.

New widower not required to follow dating timetable


ear Abby: My wife and I were having dinner with another couple when a conversation ensued that divided the men’s views from the women’s. It concerned a recently widowed man (I’ll call him “John�) who is dating a woman from our wives’ circle of friends, “Peggy.� (Peggy is a widow.) The wives were appalled that John has begun dating only three months after his wife “Gloria’s� death, and insisted a woman in his situation would not. Furthermore, the women went on to question whether it was appropriate for him to date within Gloria’s circle of friends. Our wives believe that anyone within this circle should be off limits, while we men don’t see it as a problem. So my question is: What is the proper protocol? (As an aside, the women now shun both John and Peggy.) – Just Wondering in The Bay Area Dear Just Wondering: “The wives� obviously identify with Gloria and feel that John’s not wearing sackcloth and ashes for at least a year after her death is disrespectful to her memory. That’s what they would expect from you. They would also prefer that you not date any of the available women in your circle. They were stating their feelings. So consider yourselves put on notice! From my perspective, it seems your wives feel neither John nor

Peggy has grieved long enough, and so they are punishing them. It is ADVICE possible, however, Dear that Gloria Abby told John ■■■ she didn’t want him to be alone and grieve after she was gone, which is why he is being comforted by someone who knew them both. I’d advise your wives to give them the benefit of the doubt instead of shunning them. Dear Abby: I regularly get phone calls that start with, “How are you doing?� I am often stuck trying to recognize the voice and sometimes I can’t. When I ask who’s calling, the caller becomes miffed that I didn’t recognize his or her voice. Have people forgotten telephone manners? Receiving no introduction from a caller often leaves me in the dark. I was taught to identify myself before starting the conversation. Am I being a fuddy-duddy? – Who’s Calling? in Richmond, Ky. Dear Who: Your problem is not uncommon. Unless the caller is a close family member or friend, it’s presumptuous for someone to assume his or her voice will be recognized. Some people solve this problem by having caller ID on their phone so they can see a caller’s

name and/or number when the phone rings. Others handle it this way: “How am I doing? I’m doing great! How are YOU doing?� Once the person starts talking, the chances become greater that you’ll know who’s on the line. However, if you don’t, feel free to add: “Who is this?� Dear Abby: I recently had a child and would like to join a church for the community, moral messages and the music. I grew up going to one and got a lot out of it. However, exploration throughout my 20s made me realize that I didn’t believe what was being taught. I tried hard to accept the doctrines, but truthfully, I doubt I ever will. Would it be dishonest to start attending again? – New Mom in Arkansas Dear New Mom: Many people consider themselves to be more “spiritual� than “religious.� And I’m willing to bet that in many congregations there is a range in the intensity of belief among the attendees. I encourage you to select a denomination with which you feel most comfortable. Some – like the Unitarian Universalist faith ( – have no dogma or creed and support their members in following their own spiritual paths. 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.

red-flag warning issued by the National Weather Service on July 2, 1994, was the first sign that a disaster was possible. Drought, low humidity and lighting strikes started numerous wildfires during the next several days. On July 3 the South Canyon fire located near Glenwood Springs, Colo., FIREHOUSE started but CHAT was not listed as Lee a priority Knight fire. The â– â– â–  fire was in a remote area and only burned approximately 3 acres during the first 48 hours. The fire continued to spread, so on July 5 a seven-man Forest Service crew hiked 2½ hours to the fire and set up a helicopter landing area. They started a fire line and used an air tanker with fire retardant throughout the day with little effect. That evening eight smoke jumpers parachuted into the area and started new fire lines because fire had jumped the original lines. On July 6, a second helicopter landing area was cleared, and eight more smoke jumpers arrived to continue building fire lines. Ten hot-shot crew members, highly skilled wildland firefighters, were also rushed to the rapidly growing fire to reinforce other crews. After arrival one member was sent to the ridge top to help reinforce that fire line. This decision spared his life. As more help arrived, crews began working in Gambel oak, a greenleaved oak tree that could explode into fire when superheated. It’s believed firefighters were lulled into a false sense of security by the safe-looking, green-leaved oak. At 4 p.m. July 6, the fire moved into the Gambel oak, and within seconds flames were racing toward the firefighters. The steep hills, thick vegetation and high winds had created a fire storm that firefighters could not elude. Thirty-five firefighters managed to escape, but 12 firefighters and two helitack members died in the fire storm. A trail used by grieving family members to access the area where the tragedy occurred was improved and named the Storm King Memorial Trail. A plaque overlooking the area the tragedy occurred reads: “In storm and cloud and wind and sky, In heart and mind and hand and eye, A bond still binds too strong to tell, All those who fly with those who fell.â€? 24/7/365: You call; we respond.

When thyroid is on the blink, energy vanishes


ear Dr. Donohue: I have taught fourth grade for 20 years. This year I couldn’t wait for the summer break. I was feeling fine at the beginning of the year, but as the months passed, I could hardly make it through the day. I had no energy. My husband insisted I see a doctor. I did. The first doctor told me I was depressed. The second one took a longer time with me and ordered a batch of blood tests. My thyroid gland isn’t working. I have a condition with a foreign-sounding name. Do you know what I’m talking about? Will you expand on it for me? – T.Y.



I’m sure you’re referring to Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. The Hashimoto name is not recognized by most people. It is, however, in our part of the world, the most common cause of hypothyroidism – a nonworking thyroid gland. The thyroid gland is located in the lower part of the neck. Thyroid hormone keeps all body cells and organs working at their peak efficiency. In Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, the immune system has attacked the gland for reasons that are not clear. It’s yet another example of an autoimmune disease, one where the immune system turns on its own body. Signs of a lack of thyroid hormone come on gradually. Fatigue and weakness make it














a heroic feat to get through the day. Hair might fall out. Skin becomes dry. HEALTH Affected people feel Dr. Paul cold when Donohue others are ■■■ comfortably warm. Constipation is a common complaint. Menstrual cycles are erratic. Weight is gained in spite of a poor appetite and a decreased intake of calories. In addition to these signs, the gland often enlarges – becomes a goiter. Although Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and the resulting hypothyroidism are serious conditions, treatment is straightforward: Supply the missing thyroid hormone. Once on the pill form of the hormone, signs and symptoms disappear. It takes time, however, before a person notices big changes for the better. Dear Dr. Donohue: I am 66. I had been a heavy smoker, and I had a brother who died of an abdominal aneurysm. My doctor insisted I have an ultrasound of my abdomen to find out if I had one. (He thought he felt one.) It turns out that I don’t have an aneurysm. I do have a porcelain gallbladder. The doctor wants me to have surgery right away. I have no pain. I feel good. He

says it’s a cancer threat. Is this so? – M.Z. It is so. A porcelain gallbladder must be removed because of the high risk of cancer. This kind of gallbladder got its name because calcium infiltrates its wall. The wall is inflamed, and gallstones are often the cause of the inflammation. Even though you might have no gallstones and even though you have no pain, you definiely need to have the gallbladder taken out. Dear Dr. Donohue: My grandparents never took vitamins and never talked about them. They both lived into their late 90s. Everyone I know takes vitamins, including me. Why? – C.N. Vitamins are nutrients essential to body health and chemistry. They’re needed only in minute amounts. The body only makes vitamin D. The rest we get from foods. Although the body makes vitamin D, many older people and quite a few younger ones are deficient in this vitamin. Your grandparents got vitamins from a well-balanced diet. Vitamin-taking is a new in human history. It does assure that people get the recommended daily intake. It’s probably not absolutely necessary, but most do not get their daily dose of all vitamins through foods.

Ragsdales to host First Annual Jamestown Pig Pickin’ Saturday BY JIMMY TOMLIN ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER


AMESTOWN – Anyone who knows George Ragsdale knows how unabashedly pro-Jamestown he is. So when Family Service of the Piedmont officials decided to have a fundraiser in Jamestown – similar to the annual oyster roast the organization hosts in High Point and Greensboro – no one was too surprised when Ragsdale suggested they do it the Jamestown way. “George said the social thing to do when he was growing up in Jamestown was to cook a pig, so we decided on a pig pickin’ instead of an oyster roast,” explains Jody Susong, marketing and development officer for Family Service of the Piedmont. The event, which officials are calling the First Annual Jamestown Pig Pickin’, will be held from 7 to 11 p.m. Saturday at Magnolia Farm, Ragsdale’s scenic property on E. Main Street, with Ragsdale and his wife, Jenny, as the hosts and co-chairs. Ragsdale’s father, Billy, serves



The First Annual Jamestown Pig Pickin’, a fundraiser for Family Service of the Piedmont, will be held from 7 to 11 p.m. Saturday at Magnolia Farm, the home of George and Jenny Ragsdale, located at 404 E. Main St., Jamestown. Tickets are $50 per person and are available by calling Family Service’s Jody Susong at 8896161, Ext. 1105, or by visiting the organization’s website at www.safeandhealthyfamilies. com.

as the event’s honorary chairman. “I’m a proponent of Jamestown first and foremost, so I take offense when Jamestown gets looped into High Point or Greensboro,” George Ragsdale says. “We can stand on our own, hold our head high and do things our own way, and this is another way we can do that. The oyster roast is great for High Point and

Greensboro, but we didn’t want to do the same thing – we wanted to do something different, and at a different time of year. When I was growing up, people in Jamestown had pig pickin’s, so from that the Jamestown Pig Pickin’ was born.” In addition to the food – pork and chicken, plus an array of Southern side dishes, beverages and desserts – the event will feature live music by the Tsunami Wave Riders, a popular beach band. There will also be a silent auction featuring such items as an Oriental rug donated by Ziba Rugs, a golf package from Jamestown Golf Course, Carolina Panthers tickets, and a variety of gift certificates good for dinners at local restaurants, oil changes, spa visits and more. All proceeds from the event, including silent auction proceeds, will benefit Family Service of the Piedmont, a nonprofit agency devoted to building safe and healthy families by providing counseling, victim services, prevention services and community education. Ragsdale, who has served on


the Family Service board of directors for about a year, says the pig pickin’ should go a long way toward increasing the agency’s profile in Jamestown, he says. “It’s a funny thing – there’s not a lot of awareness (of Family Service) in Jamestown, but that’s where we’re headquartered,” Ragsdale says. “As we’ve gone out and spoken to people, the first question we get is, ‘What is Family Service and what do they do?’ We tell them what a great resource it is, and people’s eyes light up, and they want to know what they can do to help the organization. We’ve gotten an overwhelmingly positive response from the community.” Susong, who has helped promote the pig pickin’, agrees. “As we’ve been out talking about the event, we found out Jamestown did not know who we were or anything we do,” she says. “We knew we needed to raise awareness, but we really needed to raise awareness, so the pig pickin’ has been good for that.” | 888-3579



Actress Betty Lynn, who played Thelma Lou on “The Andy Griffith Show,” is making a series of appearances at the new Andy Griffith Museum in Mount Airy. Lynn will meet with fans, discuss her role on the show, and sign autographs on Aug. 17 and Sept. 21, from 12:30 to 5 p.m. She will also appear from 2 to 4 p.m. on Oct. 3, a special date for fans of the classic sitcom, as it marks the 50th anniversary of the show’s debut on Oct. 3, 1960. Lynn fell in love with Mount Airy during visits to the town’s Mayberry Days festival and relocated from Los Angeles in 2007. Mount Airy is Griffith’s hometown and served as inspiration for the show’s fictional town of Mayberry. “You can’t believe the reaction people have to ‘The Andy Griffith Show.’ I never thought it would continue forever, but it does,” Lynn said. “People love the show. They grew up with me in their living room, and I really enjoy meeting them and sharing those memories.” Lynn has made occasional, unscheduled appearances at the museum since it opened last November. Word spread quickly each time, drawing crowds to the 2,500-square-foot museum. The museum is located at 218 Rockford St., next door to the Andy Griffith Playhouse and a half-mile from the actor’s boyhood home. It houses a treasure trove of items collected by Griffith’s longtime friend, Emmett Forrest. Admission to the museum is $3. Lynn will autograph 8-by-10-inch glossy photos for $10 apiece. Folks will not be allowed to take individual photos of Lynn, though, because photography is not allowed inside the museum. For more information, call (336) 786-7998 or visit







The member of my club we call Cy the Cynic is distrustful of everything and everybody. “You shouldn’t be so cynical,” I reproached Cy. “You’re right,” he said. “After all, no matter how cynical I get, I can’t keep up with real life.” Cy’s suspicious nature stems from deals like today’s. As declarer at 3NT, Cy won the second club in dummy and led a diamond to his queen. West ducked smoothly, keeping his entry, and ducked again when the Cynic led another diamond. Cy finessed with the ten, and East took the jack and led his last club.

DOWN ONE Cy won and took three spades, hoping for a 3-3 break. When West threw a heart, Cy cashed the A-K of hearts and led another diamond – and watched West produce the ace and cash two clubs. Down one. “After your queen of diamonds wins,” North said, “you get home if you try three rounds of hearts.” “It’s bad enough to be fooled,” Cy growled. “Then I have to listen to my partner pontificate.” Cy’s play was reason-

able. He was done in by good defense.

DAILY QUESTION You hold: S K 8 4 2 H 8 5 3 D K 10 9 5 C K 5. Dealer, at your left, opens one heart. Your partner doubles, and the next player bids three hearts. What do you say? ANSWER: Your opponent’s jump is weak and preemptive. If he had a good hand, he’d have chosen a different action such as a redouble. You have nine good points, and your partner’s hand is surely short in hearts, hence bid three spades. If your partner raises to four, you’ll make it. South dealer N-S vulnerable

John Haas drives Speed Sport Special to victory in the final run of Top Fuel Hydro in the Thunder at Oak Hollow drag boat races on Sunday.


HIGH POINT – Emblazoned on the gate of one of Jarrett Silvey’s transporters in the Oak Hollow pit area was the phrase “Drag racing ... no room for error.” That wasn’t the case for Silvey or John Haas in a wild final for the featured Top Alcohol Hydro class on Sunday. Second-best qualifier Haas roared away first, but reached the starting line four-thousandths of a second too early and drew a red light. Normally that would have resulted in disqualification. But, Silvey was unable to take advantage. About 100 feet past the starting line, one of the propellers on Silvey’s ”Hot Licks” boat broke, causing it to turn sharply to the right and cross into Haas’ lane while taking out a buoy. Lucas Oil Drag Boat racing series director Ken Dollar said Haas’ Speed Sport Special was declared the winner because Silvey committed the more serious foul. The ruling left Haas unbeaten in eight finalround meetings with Sil-

vey since the start of the 2009 season. “We have a rule called ‘first or worse,’” Dollar said. “Due to the fact that Jarrett crossing the center line was a safety violation, it was the worst of the two violations and is why John gets the win.” Silvey was originally announced as the winner before officials provided clarification. “They told me on the radio that they were saying that he won, but they also told me that he hit a buoy and I knew immediately that him winning was wrong,” Haas said. “It took them a minute to figure it out but I’ve seen that before.” Haas, who had an elapsed time of 3.76 seconds and a top speed of 231.91 miles an hour, said that it was the first time that he had won after fouling at the start. “The boat was perfect,” Haas said. “It did nothing wrong. If anything, they put a little more power in it and that hurt a little bit down around the start line, But, I’ll take full responsibility because we won.” He crossed the finish

Silvey’s day became worse when his boat began taking on water, the result the propeller puncturing the hull. “It would have sunk if the safety crew would have not been there,” Silvey said. “That’s definitely one of the worst deals I’ve experienced. It happened so fast that I was along for the ride. It shot to the right and I turned left to stay away from John. The thing is

you don’t want to get into your competitor.” Haas said he had no idea Silvey encountered trouble. “I didn’t see him and that usually means that you are going to win,” Haas said. “You have no side vision in those capsules so I didn’t know what happened to him.” Silvey got into the final round when fastest qualifier Mike Robbins of Youngsville red-lighted in the semifinals. “I pretty much had a brain cramp,” Robbins

said. “I was counting on the propeller catching the water like it did on Saturday. But instead it took off like a rocket. I red-lighted by three-tenths of a second. That’s pretty bad. Then, I went out for an exhibition run, because I wanted to put on some sort of show because I have a lot of friends here, and the blower went out.” Belmont native Andy Reynolds prevailed in the Top Alcohol Hydro class with a run of 4.69 seconds. | 888-3519

McMurray follows Brickyard road to win INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – Juan Pablo Montoya once again had victory within reach at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Then questionable strategy cost him first the lead, and ultimately the race. The benefactor of Sunday’s gaffe was Jamie McMurray, Montoya’s teammate at Earnhardt-Ganassi Racing, who earned a spot in the history books with his victory. McMurray joined Jimmie Johnson (2006) and Dale Jarrett (1996) as drivers to win both the Daytona 500 and The Brickyard 400 in the same season by capitalizing on Montoya’s collapse. “I am just shocked that I won the Daytona 500 and the Brick-

yard 400 in the same year,” said McMurray, who was looking for a job for 2010 at this time last season and was only hired to drive the McMurray No. 1 Chevrolet for Earnhardt-Ganassi Racing right before the November season finale. The victory also gave team owner Chip Ganassi a rare trifecta: He’s the only car owner to win the Daytona 500, The Brickyard and the Indianapolis 500 in the same season. “I need oxygen!” the jubilant car owner said from pit road. “I don’t know what to say. My

heart goes out to Juan, he had a great day, too. But I’ll tell you, this is a big, big day for our team.” Montoya led 86 of the 160 laps, but gave up the lead when a debris caution with 23 laps remaining sent the field to pit road. Crew chief Brian Pattie called for four tires, but the first six drivers off pit road only took two. The strategy put McMurray out front on the restart with 18 laps left, while Montoya was mired back in seventh. Trying hard to force his Chevrolet through traffic and back to the front, he lost control and crashed hard into the wall with 15 laps left. Kevin Harvick slid past McMur-

ray at about the same moment to take over the lead, but caution was called for Montoya’s wreck, and McMurray moved back out front on the restart with 11 laps remaining. While Montoya, who drove his battered car directly to the garage and declined comment, was fuming in the motorhome lot, McMurray was sailing to victory in his second crown jewel race of the season. Montoya, who started from the pole Sunday, wound up 32nd. Harvick finished second. Greg Biffle was third in a Ford, followed by Clint Bowyer and two-time Brickyard winner Tony Stewart.





HIT AND RUN s Alex Rodriguez continues his pursuit of 600 career home runs, I was reminded just how large a shadow the steroid era casts over big-league baseball. Five of the top 12 men on the career home run list are linked to steroids in one way or another: No. 1 Barry Bonds (762), No. 6 Sammy Sosa (609), No. 7 Alex Rodriguez (599), No. 9 Mark McGwire (583) and No. 12 Rafael Palmeiro (569). Too bad these tainted sluggers must share

Former Montreal and Chicago Cubs star Andre Dawson, former St. Louis Cardinals manager Whitey Herzog and former umpire Doug Harvey have been inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. The 56-yearold Dawson, an All-Star eight times and one of only three major league players to hit 400 homers and steal more than 300 bases, is the 203rd player to make the Hall of Fame. Dawson had 438 homers, 2,774 hits, 1,591 RBIs and 314 stolen bases in his 21-year major league career. Dawson entered the Hall of Fame on the strength of an MVP 1987 season with the Cubs and eight All-star selections. The 78-yearold Herzog, who played eight seasons as a first baseman and outfielder before moving to the front office, is just the 19th major league manager to be inducted. The 80-yearold Harvey, who worked in the National League from 1962 to 1992, called 4,673 regular-season games during his major league career and also umpired five World Series. ESPN broadcaster Jon Miller was honored with the Ford C. Frick award while New York journalist Bill Madden earned J.G. Taylor Spink Award for his contributions as a baseball writer.

space in the record books with No. 2 Hank Aaron (755), No. 3 Babe Ruth (714), No. 4 Willie Mays (660), No. 8 Frank Robinson (586) and No. 11 Harmon Killebrew (573). But to truly appreciate the extent of the damage done by the steroid era to home run records, consider the highest single-season home run totals. The top six single-season marks are owned by either Bonds, Sosa or McGwire. Bonds holds the “record” with 73 in 2001, while Big

Mac smacked 70 in 1998 and 65 in ‘99. Sosa tallied 66 homers in ‘98, 64 in 2001 and 63 in ‘99. All told, nine of the top 15 single-season home run performances were turned in by players soiled by the steroid era. That’s too many. That’s too bad. Give me Roger Maris’ 61 homers in 1961 and Hammerin’ Hank’s 755 career homers as true benchmarks anytime.

Swofford covers wide range of ACC topics bumpâ&#x20AC;? for the Tar Heels. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is kind of a distraction, but we kind of look at it as weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve already taken our adversity for the season,â&#x20AC;? Yates said. For those who try to regulate college football SPORTS and basketball, it is much more than a speed Greer bump. Smith â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a problem thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  tough to get your arms around,â&#x20AC;? Swofford said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to invest more in the NCAA. We have a lot of money in the NCAA and maybe some of it should be used for more investigators. As for the conferenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s role, we need to help the schools to develop a culture, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a big culture guy, if you have the right kind of culture you are not going to eliminate problems but you are going to reduce them.â&#x20AC;? Education is the key, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a conference we encourage to stress those things over and over and over again. Fact of the matter is, you can do those things consistently and do them well, and still have individuals accept things they shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t accept or make a commitment sooner than it should be made. Our athletes know what is acceptable and not acceptable. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the problem. It goes beyond one sport. It is an issue that operates in the shadows a bit in terms of runners (for agents) on campus, partially because you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know who they are sometimes.â&#x20AC;? Swofford lauded the intention of North Carolina Secretary of State Elaine Marshall to launch an investigation into whether the contact with the UNC players violated a state law that bars agents from offering gifts before a contract is signed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We should look at if an agentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; runner is a student at an institution and they commit a violation, they should be prosecuted and suspended from school. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to reach out to the National Football League players association and the National Basketball Association players association to help give us sanctions toward players and agents. We in the collegiate community have no hammer with that group of people. ... The people who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pay a price are the agents and their runners.â&#x20AC;? gsmith@hpe.comn | 888-3519


GREENSBORO â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Before North Carolinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s T.J. Yates and Robert Quinn sat down with the media at the ACC Football Kickoff in Greensboro on Sunday, a team spokesman reminded the reporters standing two-deep that the Tar Heels were not allowed to discuss the ongoing investigation as mandated by the NCAA. That didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop the players, however, from being flooded with questions about how the probe was affecting the team. It was the first opportunity for UNC football players to make public comments since news broke of the investigation on July 15, and it seemed that every other question during the onehour, 15-minute session was about the controversy. And even though Yates and Quinn couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t comment specifically on the investigation that allegedly is looking into improper contact between players and agents, both maintained the Tar Heels will be focused on football when they report for training camp on Aug. 5. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going into the season as weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be full strength,â&#x20AC;? Yates said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be thinking any other thing, because we just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want it to affect us. If you put too much focus on the other stuff going on in and around (the program), I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll distract us from what our goals are as a team and distract us going into training camp.â&#x20AC;? Yates admitted it has been frustrating that the preseason chatter around the Tar Heels has shifted from their on-field

potential to their off-field problems, but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s confident UNC will be able to move on from the controversy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is kind of a distraction, but we kind of look at it as weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve already taken our adversity for the season,â&#x20AC;? Yates said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So once we get over this little speed bump, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be able to put it behind us and go forward through the season.â&#x20AC;? Both Yates and Quinn said news of the investigation initially surprised them, but Yates said the team is trying to stay positive. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really looking forward to training camp, getting back into that football mindset of grinding and showing (that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re) together as one brotherhood,â&#x20AC;? Quinn said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really looking forward to the season.â&#x20AC;? And while the pair mostly tip-toed around questions about agents, ACC commissioner John Swofford spoke directly on the subject for 12 straight minutes during his hour-long address. Swofford praised the N.C. secretary of state for opening an investigation into agents and called for the penalties for unscrupulous agents to be harsher. He also said the NCAA needs to reach out to the NFL and NBA players associations to help control agents and runners. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I suspect (the problem) has worsened some because of the dollars at the next level, in the NFL and the NBA,â&#x20AC;? Swofford said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also being paid more attention at this given point in time. While uncomfortable, I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good.â&#x20AC;? Swofford said educating athletes is key, and he is comfortable with all the compliance offices in the ACC.


Jamie McMurray celebrates after winning the Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Indianapolis on Sunday.

Johnson fails in quest to make history at Indy ers, so he stayed long enough for the surprised crew to change the front shock absorbers, put tape on the front grill and pound down the front splitter. The extended stop left Johnson a lap behind the leaders and ended his reign as Indyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s king. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We made some attempts during caution flags to make some big changes on pit road, but nothing really hooked the car up,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll just have to dig in and find out what happened.â&#x20AC;? Johnson should at least get some solace from his Hendrick Motorsports teammates this week. Four-time Cup winner Jeff Gordon fought a vibration problem Sunday, lost part of a flat tire as he entered the pits on lap 129 and then broke part of his splitter. He wound up 23rd. Dale Earnhardt Jr. was the only Hendrick driver moving up in the field after starting 17th. But when race leader Juan Pablo Montoya slid up the track, hit the wall and skidded back across the track, Earnhardt was sent into the wall at the entrance of pit lane with 14 laps to go. He finished 27th. Veteran Mark Martin fared better, finishing 11th and moving up one spot to 13th in points. The problem: He passed his teammate, Earnhardt, in the standings and lost an additional 25 points to Clint Bowyer, who still holds the 12th and final spot in the Cupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s championship round with six races left before The Chase begins. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We never had a chance,â&#x20AC;? Gordon said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were just salvaging what we could out of the day. To be honest with you, I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think 23rd was that bad for what we had.â&#x20AC;?

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Jimmie Johnson tried to stick to his normal Indianapolis routine Sunday. His No. 48 car ruined everything. A handling problem befuddled Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team all day, forcing the two-time defending Brickyard 400 champion to abdicate his title and abandon the history-making quest before the checkered flag ended Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s race. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect it to be this way,â&#x20AC;? Johnson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were really good in qualifying. But right now, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really just confusion here.â&#x20AC;? It was a rare miss for NASCARâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s version of Mr. Consistency, who qualified second and suggested afterward that he could have taken the pole as he attempted to become the sixth four-time winner in track history and the first American to ever win three straight races at the speedway. The man with a record four straight Cup titles, 11 top-10 finishes in the first 19 races this season and three wins in the previous four Cup races at Indy lost his touch â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and his place in Victory Lane, too. Johnson blamed it on an understeer problem that nobody on Chad Knausâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; crew could solve. He managed to run in the top five for the first 40 laps, but when things went awry, Johnson fell back steadily. He lost six spots from lap 40 to lap 50, and fell all the way back to 22nd after a 15second pit stop on lap 67 when Johnson instructed his crew to work on the shock absorbers. That didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work. Before pitting on lap 118, Johnson was nearly 48 seconds behind the lead-

Alonso wins German GP, but Ferrari fined HOCKENHEIM, Germany (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Fernando Alonso won the German Grand Prix on Sunday for Ferrari, but the team was fined $100,000 afterward for orchestrating his pass of teammate Felipe Massa. Race stewards didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t overturn Ferrariâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 12 finish, choosing to send the case to the sportâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s governing body, which could impose more sanctions. Team orders that affect the result of a race are forbidden under Formula One rules. Alonso had more points in the title race and the team apparently felt it would be better served if he collected the 25 points

Ferrari was in breach of Article 39.1 of the International Auto Federation (FIA) 2010 sporting regulations. Article 39.1 says: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Team orders that interfere with race results are prohibited.â&#x20AC;? Sebastian Vettel of Germany was third.

that go to the winner rather than Massa. Massa, racing on the first anniversary of a crash that nearly killed him, led the race for 49 of 67 laps before he was passed by Alonso following communications from Ferrari over the team radio. Stewards said

s expected, Atlantic Coast Conference commissioner John Swofford opened with remarks that accentuated the positive. He talked about the possibility of five teams being ranked in the Top 25 in advance of the upcoming season. He spoke of 13 players on the watch list for Nagurski award for top defense player, six centers on the watch list for the Remington award, five quarterbacks on the list for the Davey Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien award and 11 interior lineman under consideration for the Outland Award. He talked of the conference leading the nation again in football among those leagues in the Bowl Championship Series. He touched on new tie-ins with the Sun and Independence Bowls, and also the $1.86-billion, 12-year television contract with ESPN that doubles the amount of revenue that will be distributed to the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 12 schools. But, at least a quarter of his time during an hour-long press conference that opened the conferenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s football media kickoff Sunday at Grandover Resort dealt with the issue of player agents â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a subject that has come to the forefront as the NCAA investigates North Carolina and at least three schools in the Southeastern Conference. The investigation at North Carolina centers around whether two players accepted improper benefits from agents. Swofford said he believes the rules concerning agents should be reviewed by the NCAA. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to look at what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing,â&#x20AC;? Swofford said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not saying that what he are doing is wrong but we need to evaluate whether we are are we addressing it terms of NCCA rules? Are we addressing it in terms of the needs of our athletes? But, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think that is where the problem lies but.â&#x20AC;? Swofford, who is in his 13th year as ACC commissioner after 17 years as an athletics director, said he would not go back to the days when agents were not permitted to make contact with athletes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think we should go back there because it would be unenforceable,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think you would create more problems. Whether it should be liberalized further, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something we should talk about. You have to look at whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best for college athletics and the institutions and the athletes.â&#x20AC;? UNC senior quarterback T.J.

HiToms squander more opportunities BY ZACH KEPLEY THE THOMASVILLE TIMES

THOMASVILLE â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Thomasville had the even-numbered innings covered Sunday afternoon in a Coastal Plain League game with Forest City. The first three odd innings were enough to dispose of the HiToms. The Owls scored three runs in the first and two each in the third and fifth innings, as the visitors left Finch Field with a 7-4 victory. Plenty of opportunities made available to the HiToms. They sprayed the ball throughout the ballpark for 13 hits, but not many of them were in succession and with runners in scoring position. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has been the same scenario over and over again,â&#x20AC;? said Tommies head coach Tom Dorzweiler. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It does not matter who we face or who they pitch. We hit, we hit, we hit and we hit. Today we had 13 hits and four runs, and we just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to string them together to score runs.â&#x20AC;? One out singles by the Owls in the

first put the defending CPL champions in business, leaving starter Ben Grisz in a world of trouble right from the start. He bounced back for a strikeout to record the second out, needing only to put down Cade Stallings to escape. The bomber from Louisville had a different agenda, crushing a shot well over the wall in left field for a 3-0 Owls lead. Two of Thomasvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading hitters put the HiToms the back on track in the bottom half, coming up with two hits and two runs scored to make it 3-2. Alex Yarbrough singled, then went to second on a wild pitch. Cass Hargis followed with an RBI triple that narrowed the deficit to 3-1. With one out on the board, Zak Wasserman hit an RBI groundout to second that scored Hargis, as the HiToms settled for two in the inning. Forest City snatched the two runs back in the third to push the lead back to three, then got two more bonus runs in the fifth for a 7-2 advantage. Reid Harper singled with one out, then trotted the final

bases thanks to his good friend Wes Walker, who sent a Grisz offering off the scoreboard for a two-run homer. Grisz did allow any more to score, but his work was done after the final out of the inning. Owls starter Andrew Brown was touched for one more run in the seventh but did enough work up to that point to record the win. The HiToms could have gotten even more off of him in the seventh but left runners on second and third. Thomasville scored one more run in the ninth on a sacrifice fly by Wasserman. That inning could have been much bigger as well but runners were left on first and second. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That has been our thing all year,â&#x20AC;? said Dorzweiler. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we have the opportunities we are just not getting it done.â&#x20AC;? Thomasville dips to 13-35 for the year. The Owls improve to 30-17. Yarbrough had another strong effort with three hits and three runs scored. Matt Dillon and Kyle Barbeck pitched well in relief for the HiToms, holding Forest City scoreless over the final four innings.

Langer holds on for Senior British Open championship THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CARNOUSTIE, Scotland â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Bernhard Langer won his first senior major title on Sunday, holding off a final-round challenge from Corey Pavin for a onestroke win in the Senior British Open. The German shot a 1-over 72 at Carnoustie to finish at 5-under 279. Pavin ended with a 1-under 70. Pavin, the American Ryder Cup captain, trailed by three shots at the start of the fourth round but cut the gap to two when he birdied his second hole of the day. Langer survived three-putting both the 8th and 9th greens. After making birdie at 15, he parred his way to his 11th win in three years on the Champions Tour. Pavin finished three strokes ahead of Americans Fred Funk, Jay Don Blake and Russ Cochran and Australian Peter Senior. Tom Watson finished with 74 for a 6-over 290. The 60-year-old American said he would return next year to play in both the British Open and Senior British Open.

Contador takes third Tour title PARIS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Alberto Contador stood atop the podium at the Tour de France on Sunday for the third time in four years, struggling to rein in his emotions as Spainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s national anthem echoed across the wide boulevard of the Champs-Elysees. Off to one side, Lance Armstrong applauded and then, without much fanfare, headed toward

the exit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I need a cold beer,â&#x20AC;? he said when asked his thoughts at the finish line. Rarely has the emergence of a sportâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newest superstar dovetailed so neatly with the departure of the last one. Contador held off a next-to-last day challenge from Andy Schleck of Luxembourg, his runner-up for a second consecutive year, draining

much of the drama from the 20th and final stage. Denis Menchov of Russia was third overall. Armstrong completed his last Tour in 23rd place, 39:20 behind Contador, his former teammate and rival. His crash-filled journey was a far cry from the third-place finish he posted in 2009 on his return from a fouryear retirement. Yet the sport the 38-

Geithner: Some tax credits should expire WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner said that allowing tax cuts for the wealthy to expire would be â&#x20AC;&#x153;the responsible thing to do.â&#x20AC;? This is the last year for the tax cuts enacted under President George W. Bush. Republicans have generally favored extending all of them. While Democrats are divided on the issue, President Barack Obama has favored allowing the expiration of cuts he says have applied to the wealthiest people. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s responsible to let the tax cuts expire that just go to 2 percent to 3 percent of Americans, the highest earning Americans,â&#x20AC;? Geithner told ABCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;This Weekâ&#x20AC;? in an interview broadcast Sunday. Doing so would show the world that the U.S. is â&#x20AC;&#x153;willing as a country now to start to make some progressâ&#x20AC;? reducing long-term budget deficits, he said. Geithner said he does not believe that higher taxes for those high earners will hurt economic growth. He also said he â&#x20AC;&#x153;absolutelyâ&#x20AC;? believes Congress will act on taxes before the election. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a touchy issue for Democrats, some of whom may not be eager to address a hot-button issue like taxes so close to Election Day. Speaking on NBC Newsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Meet the Press,â&#x20AC;? Geithner says he supports allowing the top capital gains tax rate to revert to 20 percent. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 15 percent now.


Employees work inside the Real Time Crime Center at police headquarters in New York. Two years ago, the Federal Communications Commission stumbled as it tried to create a nationwide wireless broadband network for police officers, firefighters and emergency medical workers, delaying the construction of what everyone agrees is an urgently needed system.

FCC, public service agencies at odds over emergency broadband plan WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Two years ago, the Federal Communications Commission stumbled as it tried to create a nationwide wireless broadband network for police officers, firefighters and emergency medical workers, delaying the construction of what everyone agrees is an urgently needed system. Now the agency is hoping to rework the plan, which relies on a prime slice of airwaves called the D Block. But many public safety officials say the commission is, once again, going about it the wrong way. In 2008, the FCC attempted to auction off the block to the wireless industry, with a requirement that the winning bidder help build out a sturdy communications network that would be

shared with first responders and give them priority in an emergency. The auction failed to attract any serious bidders. So this time around, the agency hopes to auction off the D Block to wireless carriers and use the proceeds â&#x20AC;&#x201C; projected to be as much as $4 billion â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to help pay for a public safety network on a separate slice of spectrum already set aside for first responder broadband use. The existing public safety block, the FCC says, provides plenty of capacity for day-today operations â&#x20AC;&#x201C; letting first responders access everything from surveillance video to fingerprint databases using laptops and handheld devices in the field. And in an emergency, the FCC proposal would give public

safety users priority access to the D Block and other airwaves from the digital transition. The FCC says its proposal would fulfill a Congressional requirement to auction off the D Block and ensure public safety benefits from the latest wireless technology. But the FCC proposal has run into fierce resistance from public safety leaders who warn that their current spectrum holdings are not big enough to meet their needs. They are wary of relying on commercial networks to fill the gap, particularly in emergencies. The big wireless carriers have also joined the fray. T-Mobile USA and Sprint Nextel Corp., eager for more spectrum, support the FCC proposal. Verizon

Wireless and AT&T Inc., both flush with spectrum from 2008 auctions of other airwaves from the digital transition, want to see the D Block go to public safety. So does Motorola Inc., which dominates the market for first responder communications equipment and handsets. The one thing everyone agrees on is the need to bring nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public safety communications networks into the digital age. The shortcomings of the existing networks became apparent after the 9/11 attacks and Hurricane Katrina. But Chuck Dowd, deputy chief in the communications division of the New York City Police Department, says commercial networks are just not reliable enough for first responders.

Investors comb through earnings to gauge next step NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; With earnings season in full swing, bulls and bears are combing through reports to arm themselves in whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s become the mother of all stock market debates: Does the recovery gain steam, sending shares aloft? Or does it remain sluggish, or even stall, and push them down further? A third possibility: Maybe the economy doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter so much. Larry Hatheway, an economist at UBS, says economic growth means companies selling more things. But he thinks that is not as important as it used to be to generating the profits needed to send stocks higher. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because U.S. firms have

mastered the art of pulling more and more money from each dollar of sales. One gauge of that success: Corporate margins, or profits per sale, are hovering near 12 percent now, by one measure â&#x20AC;&#x201C; tantalizingly close to a half-century high. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As long as we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fall into another recession, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good time to make money,â&#x20AC;? says Hatheway, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bullish on stocks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re able to squeeze more profits out of sales than we were twenty or thirty years ago.â&#x20AC;? Though just a third of companies in the Standard & Poorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 500 have reported quarterly earnings results so far, the picture is impressive. Profits are booming. Eight out of

ten companies have beat earnings expectations, according to Thomson Reuters. The average jump in profits is 33 percent. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an old story, really. Companies cut workers in a downturn, and squeeze more out of those remaining. And so profitability rises smartly â&#x20AC;&#x201C; only to fall again in the recovery as sales and payrolls rise once more. But Hatheway says margins will stay high for a while yet because the forces that pushed them there arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going away anytime soon. He says high unemployment is likely to stick around longer than in typical recoveries. And while thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bad for the econo-

my, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good for margins. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Firms can pick good employees and dictate compensation,â&#x20AC;? he says. U.S. companies also have learned to squeeze more from their equipment and factories, not just their workers, he says. They kept their spending on such things low even before the recession. They feared a repeat of the booming 1990s when they spent wildly on equipment like telecommunications gear â&#x20AC;&#x201C; only to discover they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need all of it. Hatheway says globalization has helped, too. Companies outsource much work abroad and draw supplies from numerous sources, which helps keep costs down.

Flooding causes millions in damage in Iowa MONTICELLO, Iowa (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Flooding from the Maquoketa River after an eastern Iowa dam failed has damaged dozens of homes and businesses, causing millions of dollars in damage in Monticello, a city official said Sunday. The Lake Delhi dam failed Saturday as rising floodwater from the Maquoketa River ate a 30-

foot-wide hole in it. Areas below the dam, including in Hopkinton and Monticello were evacuated. The river crested upstream of the dam at Manchester early Saturday afternoon at 24.53 feet â&#x20AC;&#x201C; more than 10 feet above flood stage and well above its 2004 record of 21.66 feet â&#x20AC;&#x201C; before it began to slowly recede.


Bystanders watch the water rise on Saturday after the Maquoketa River flooded downtown Manchester, Iowa, due to heavy rainfall spanning the past 48 hours.

PHOENIX (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The families of a woman who died in a traffic crash and another who suffered severe injuries have learned theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been mourning the wrong woman because of a mix-up. Last week, friends stood vigil at a Phoenix hospital after authorities told

them Marlena Cantu, 21, was in critical condition. And they mourned Abby Guerra, 19, who they thought had died in the same wreck last Sunday. The Arizona Department of Public Safety says a spokesman wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be available to discuss the mistake until today.
