The N.C. Department of Transportation has conducted a feasibility study of possible improvements to N.C. 109 through downtown Thomasville.



The study evaluated the area south of I-85 near Lambeth Road, passing through the Thomasville Central Business District and ending at I-85 Business Loop.

THOMASVILLE – Thomasville officials are reviewing a feasibility study that shows six possible alternatives for reconstructing and improving areas of N.C. 109 to mitigate current and future traffic congestion through the city. The study, conducted by the N.C. Department of Transportation, was done at the request of Thomasville officials who are concerned about future traffic patterns



A look at the six alternatives. 3A “through and around the downtown area,” said Pat Ivey, a DOT division engineer based in WinstonSalem. “Obviously, the existing (N.C. 109) as it goes through downtown crossing the railroad on the two-lane section is very congested at times,” Ivey said. “The biggest concern of course is that you

really can’t do any improvements to the existing corridor ... (The city of Thomasville) wanted us to look at the possibility of what the alternatives could be for rerouting N.C. 109 traffic around the downtown area.” Thomasville City Manager Kelly Craver said the city received the study last week. The study evaluated reasonable improvements in the area beginning south of Interstate 85 near Lambeth Road, passing

HIGH POINT – A former employee of High Point’s Alcoholic Beverage Control system said his request to be reinstated to his job has been denied. Bill Lyle said he received a letter Monday notifying him that the ABC board was not going to overturn the decision to fire him last month. Lyle has raised questions about the system’s business practices while he worked there as an assistant manager for about two years. He said he believes he was

fired because he spoke out about the methods used to account for breakages of liquor shipments. Lyle said he asked board members to reinstate him and told them about his concerns that the method for handling damage claims might have constituted fraud. The board addressed the matter at a meeting last week. ABC officials said they investigated Lyle’s allegations and have uncovered no evidence of wrongdoing. The circumstances of his employment and departure from his job were handled at the meeting in closed session as a personnel mat-

ter that can’t be publicly commented on, according to ABC leaders. Lyle maintains that he was dismissed without justification and said he is looking into possible legal action to try to regain his position. He has alleged that his superiors used a minor incident as a pretext to fire him after he took a few dollars out of his own pocket and placed them in one of the store’s registers to reconcile a cash shortage involving three minibottles of liquor. Lyle said he did this so the store where he worked at the time wouldn’t fall out of contention for

monthly recognition as the most profitable of the six ABC retail outlets in the city. “I’m an assistant manager. I’m trained by a manager. I didn’t think that thing up. Someone had to teach me how to do that because I’d never thought about it,” Lyle said. Board Chairman David Wall said previously that no evidence of fraud or other malfeasance has been uncovered based on available information but if additional information develops, the board will investigate it.

HIGH POINT – Several bidders are seeking to buy the High Point Market showroom holdings of Merchandise Mart Properties Inc. in the wake of its parent company’s default on its loan for the properties, sources say. At least three independent sources confirmed Wednesday that potential new owners are making bids for the showroom buildings that include the Market Square complex. The High Point Enterprise has reported since March that the parent company of Merchandise Mart Properties, Vornado Realty Trust, ceased making debt service payments on the loan for its 2.1 million square feet of showrooms. Merchandise Mart, which purchased its first showrooms in High Point in 1998, has become the secondlargest showroom owner and operator behind the International Home Furnishings Center. The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday that Vornado will forfeit its showroom properties to the holders of its $191 million securitized mortgage.

“Vornado is offering to forfeit the property to the special servicer overseeing the mortgage, J.E. Roberts Cos., in a deed in lieu of foreclosure transaction,” the Wall Street Journal reports. Merchandise Mart Properties President Chris Kennedy told The High Point Enterprise Wednesday that his company remains confident in the High Point Market and “enthusiasm for the properties has increased”

New Mexico police: NC teen forced into prostitution


Burial of Fort Bragg soldier A caisson carries the coffin during a burial service for Staff Sgt. Edwardo Loredo, at Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, Va., Tuesday. Loredo, 34, of Houston, died June 24 at Jelewar, Afghanistan, when insurgents attacked his unit with an improvised explosive device. He was assigned to 2nd Battalion, 508th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division, Fort Bragg.

4-month-old found alive in SC after being snatched in NC COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) – A 4-month-old baby boy snatched from his mother’s car in North Carolina was found Wednesday morning wet and crying after surviving seven hours in the South Carolina woods with a man police say took the child. “I held the baby. He was alert, but wet and crying. He seemed fine, but we transferred him to the emergency room to have him checked out,” Chesterfield County Sheriff’s Lt. Briana Davis said in a telephone interview. “He was a little dirty after being in the woods so long.” The baby was returned to his mother later Wednesday. Davis said Jalleel Xamir Howard was



found around 2 a.m. Wednesday, about 15 hours after he was taken from his mother’s car in a Monroe, N.C., doctor’s office parking lot. Lonnie Cecil Buchanan, 41, of Monroe has been charged with kidnapping and is being held in the Union County, N.C., jail under a $250,000 bond, said Capt. Bryan Gilliard of the Monroe Police Department. Beulah Marie Steen, 23, also of Monroe, is charged with kidnapping and is being held

on a $50,000 bond, Gilliard said. There was no information about whether either has an attorney. Gilliard praised the South Carolina police for sighting Buchanan and Steen’s vehicle, then keeping bloodhounds in a wooded area to track down him until he emerged from the woods with the baby. “Those guys just wouldn’t stop until they found that child,” Gilliard said. South Carolina police stopped a car being driven by Steen around 7 p.m. Tuesday evening on state Highway 207 near Pageland. Davis said Buchanan ran into the woods with the baby after seeing officers in the area. About

seven hours later, she said, Buchanan came out of the woods with the child and was arrested. Gilliard said Buchanan and the baby’s mother were involved in some sort of domestic dispute and Buchanan told police he is the child’s father. But he is not listed on the birth certificate. Witnesses told police Buchanan and Steen were waiting in the parking lot for the mother. “They had it all planned out what they were going to do,” Gilliard said. “They grabbed that child and jumped in the car.” Davis said Buchanan may have driven to South Carolina looking for a friend who lives in the area.

through the Thomasville Central Business District and ending at Interstate 85 Business Loop. “There’s six different alternatives – all of which one gets more costlier than the next,” Craver said. “We are talking things that are running from (more than) $20 million to (more than) $100 million.” Under current traffic conditions, the study states that most intersections in the study area operate at an acceptable level of service. Exceptions include Main Street-South, Liberty Drive and Lambeth Road, where the intersections reach or exceed their capacity. By the year 2035, traffic conditions at most intersections are expected to reach or exceed the traffic carrying capacity. Crash rates along N.C. 109 in the study area are nearly 2.5 times the

term under an agreement with prosecutors that also calls for him to pay $1,000 or more in restitution. Organizers of the “Cows Come Home” project are now asking bartenders and store owners to serve as “cow tenders” and keep an eye out for the sculptures.

statewide average rates for similar routes. Ivey said there is no N.C. 109 project in the DOT’s transportation program. He said the DOT will not be doing any additional studies until there money set up to fund a N.C. 109 project. According to the study, N.C. 109 serves as a major thoroughfare in the High Point-Thomasville urbanized area. It is a strategic northsouth corridor linking Asheboro, Ablemarle, Denton and the rural areas of western Randolph, southeast Davidson and Montgomery counties. It’s considered a vital ink for commerce between those urban areas and supports job opportunities for the rural communities served by the thoroughfare to the employment centers in the Piedmont Triad and Lexington areas, the study states.

DOT study lists alternatives to NC 109 traffic Elsewhere...


Thomasville officials review plans. 1A


THOMASVILLE – The N.C. 109 feasibility study, released recently by the N.C. Department of Transportation, lists six alternatives to mitigate current and future traffic congestion through Thomasville. • Alternative One, which would cost $37.8 million, addresses congestion along the commercialized area of N.C. 109 from south of Interstate 85 to the Julian Avenue intersection with Cloniger Street, a length of about 1.5 miles. The study, which implements the northern end of future N.C. 109 improvements, includes intersection improvements and reconstruction of the Interstate 85 interchange. Improvements to N.C. 109 north of Julian Avenue through downtown Thomasville were considered to be not feasible as widening N.C. 109 and bridging over the railroad near Main Street would involve substantial property damages and community impacts. Alternative one would relocate 29 residences and businesses. • Alternative Two, which would cost $70.7 million, is a parallel route to N.C. 109 around the west side of Thomasville. It starts at N.C. 109 south of Lambeth Road and travels west on a new location to join Lake Road. It continues

north along Baptist Children’s Home Road, Peace Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Drive to Interstate 85 Business Loop, a length of about 5 miles. Alternative two provides interchanges with Interstate 85 and Interstate 85 Business Loop, and it implements part of the future Thomasville Southern Loop. The study states that benefits associated with alternative two include wide traffic lanes, an alignment that may not require substantial reconstruction, compatible posted speed limits, and the use of an existing bridge over the railroad near Main Street. There is the potential for impacts to minority and lowincome neighborhoods along Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, according to the study. Alternative two would relocate 152 residences and businesses. • Alternative Three was considered early in the project’s development. It follows Alternative Two from N.C. 109 to Lake Road at Fisher Ferry Road to Winston Street and joins N.C. 109 at Interstate 85 Business Loop, a length of 5.2 miles. There is not enough space between existing interchanges on Interstate 85 to allow a new interchange with Fisher Ferry Road on Alternative Three, the study states. A new bridge over the railroad near Main Street would be disruptive to development in the downtown area. There are numerous low-income houses and historic properties located along the alternative, the alignment is poor and the existing lane widths are inadequate, according to the study. The study states for these reasons, this alternative was

not considered feasible and was eliminated from further consideration. • Alternative Four, which would cost $97.4 million, includes Alternative One and the closest parallel route to N.C. 109 along the east side of downtown Thomasville that follows Julian Avenue, continues to Maple Avenue, and extends on a new location to join Unity Street. It continues along Unity Street to N.C. 109 and then north on N.C. 109 to Interstate 85 Business Loop, a length of about 4.5 miles. The alternative provides a multilane route with interchanges at Interstate 85 and Interstate 85 Business Loop. It implements part of the High Point Metropolitan Planning Organization Thoroughfare plan with the extension of Julian Avenue from Main Street to Unity Street. Benefits of Alternative Four include maintaining the existing railroad bridge near Main Street; the N.C. 109 route designation could be shifted to the new route; wide traffic lanes and compatible posted speed limits south of Main Street. Substantial community impact, however, would occur along the northern part of Main Street to N.C. 109. Alternative Four would relocate 178 residences and businesses. • Alternative Five, which would cost $99.9 million, is a parallel route to N.C. 109 along the east side of Thomasville. It follows N.C. 109 from south of Lambeth Road and joins N.C. 62 (Cloniger Drive), Liberty Drive, Turner Street, and National Highway to Interstate 85 Business Loop, a length of about 4.7 miles. Benefits include the extension of

a multi-lane facility from N.C. 109 south of Thomasville to National Highway for improved access between the two interstate facilities. It also includes a new bridge over the railroad near Main Street. The disadvantage is that it does not have a direct interchange with Interstate 85. It joins National Highway north of Thomasville instead of N.C. 109 to provide access to Interstate 85 Business Loop. Construction costs are highest from Blair Street to National Highway at Interstate 85 Business Loop due to the extensive widening and the railroad grade separation. Substantial community impacts occur along Liberty Drive between Cloniger Street and Blair Street. Alternative five would relocate 250 residences and businesses. • Alternative Six, which would cost $262.7 million, combines links from the High Point Metropolitan Planning Organization Thoroughfare Plan to determine their overall benefit to traffic operations within the Thomasville area roadway network. It examines the combined roadway system improvements from Alternatives One, Two, Four and Five to implement links in the High Point MPO Thoroughfare plan. With Alternative Six, there is some improvement in traffic operations at N.C. 109 intersections as compared with other alternatives alone. Alternative Six would relocate 578 residences and businesses. Future traffic projections indicate that Alternatives Two, Four, Five and Six divert less than 20 percent of the traffic from N.C. 109. | 888-3657

Fort Bragg General: NC post supports military widows FORT BRAGG (AP) – The Army has drastically increased its outreach and support for surviving spouses since the start of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, the post commander said. Lt. Gen. Frank Helmick, commander of the 18th Airborne Corps and Fort Bragg, told reporters on Wednesday that he still remembers the first time he served as a casualty assistance of-

ficer in 1994. One of his men was killed in a training accident in Italy, and they didn’t know how long the surviving spouse’s benefits would last or how long they could stay in military housing. All that has changed with the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Since 2001, the military has drastically increased benefits and allow widows to keep military housing for one year and

health care for three years. They also receive almost a half-million dollars in benefits. More than a dozen North Carolina-based soldiers have died in combat in July, continuing what is becoming a deadly summer for coalition forces in Afghanistan. Military officials say 57 American service members have died in Afghanistan in July, including at least 13 Fort Bragg sol-

diers. The soldiers were from the 82nd Airborne Division’s 4th Brigade Combat Team and the 20th Engineer Brigade’s 27th Engineer Battalion. Helmick said July has been a hard month. He or one of his generals attends the funeral of every soldier killed on Fort Bragg. He said each one is hard and each one he will remember forever. But, he said, the fam-

ily always thanks him. “They say, ’General, my son died doing what he loved to do. He died being a soldier,’ “ Helmick said. “And that gives me a little bit of comfort.� The Defense Department says June was the deadliest month for coalition troops in Afghanistan since the war started in 2001. Of the 104 coalition troops killed, 60 were from the U.S..

No survivors in plane crash; 152 dead



Rains cause worst floods in a decade in China BEIJING – Floods caused by heavy rains in northeastern China stranded tens of thousands of residents without power Wednesday, as the worst flooding in more than a decade continued to besiege many areas of the country. Floods this year have killed at least 928 people and caused tens of billions of dollars in damage, the State Flood Control and Drought Prevention office reported. More heavy rains were expected for the southeast, southwest and northeast through today.

South Korea: Drills sent strong warning SEOUL, South Korea – For four days, U.S. and South Korean troops fired artillery into the skies and dropped anti-submarine bombs on underwater targets – dramatic exercises meant to warn North Korea not to strike again. The South Korean military said the show of force, which ended Wednesday, succeeded in sending a pointed warning to North Korea four months after the deadly sinking of a South Korean warship.

US military probes contractor work force BAGHDAD – The U.S. military said Wednesday it is clamping down on contracting firms on American military bases using employees whose home countries ban travel to Iraq, raising questions about why the contractors were allowed to work in the country for so long despite the ban. Philippines citizens have been banned since 2004 from traveling to Iraq after insurgents threatened to behead a Filipino truck driver, and officials in the Philippines say they have repeatedly asked the U.S. and other countries to respect their ban.

Egypt: Assurances may boost direct peace talks CAIRO – Egypt said Wednesday it has received U.S. assurances that may help in restarting direct peace talks between the Palestinians and Israel. Egyptian presidential spokesman Suleiman Awwad did not disclose details of the U.S. assurances, which come on the eve of a crucial Arab League meeting to determine the future of the Israeli-Palestinian negotiations. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is under intense international pressure to restart direct peace talks with Israel frozen in 2008.


Pakistani rescue workers look for survivors at the site of a plane crash in Islamabad, Pakistan on Wednesday. A government official says all 152 people on board were killed.

ISLAMABAD (AP) – A passenger jet that officials suspect veered off course in monsoon rains and thick clouds crashed into hills overlooking Pakistan’s capital Wednesday, killing all 152 people on board and scattering body parts and twisted metal far and wide. The Airblue jet’s crash was the deadliest ever in Pakistan. At least two U.S. citizens were on the plane, which carried mostly Pakistanis. The plane left the southern city of Karachi at 7:45 a.m. for a two-hour flight to Islamabad and was trying to land when it lost contact with the control tower, said Pervez George, a civil aviation official. The aircraft, an Airbus A321, crashed some 15 kilometers from the airport, scorching a wide stretch of the Margalla Hills. In the U.S., Paulette Kirksey said her godmother, Rosie Ahmed of Gadsden, Alabama, and her husband, Saleem Ahmed, were among those on the plane. Rose Ahmed was in Pakistan to make arrangements for him to move to the United States, Kirksey said. She said Rosie Ahmed was in her late 50s.

Bus hits bomb, killing 25 in Afghanistan KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) – A packed bus hit a roadside bomb in southern Afghanistan on Wednesday, killing 25 people aboard, as NATO announced another U.S. service member died. The passenger bus was traveling in Nimroz province on a main highway toward the capital, Kabul, when it struck the explosive about 7 a.m., said Nazir Ahmad, a provincial government spokesman. The explosion occurred near Delaram – a volatile area close to the

borders of Helmand and Farah provinces. Afghan President Hamid Karzai condemned the attack. “The criminals who did this are the enemies of Muslims,� he said in a statement. Also Wednesday, officials reported three more international service members were killed – two Italians and an American. The Italians died Wednesday in a roadside bombing, the Italian Defense Ministry said. The American was killed Tuesday in the south, NATO said.

Judge blocks parts of Arizona immigration law PHOENIX (AP) – A federal judge dealt a serious rebuke to Arizona’s toughest-in-the-nation immigration law on Wednesday when she put most of the crackdown on hold just hours before it was to take effect. The ruling by U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton shifts the immigration debate to the courts and sets up a lengthy legal battle that may not be decided until the Supreme Court weighs in. Republican Gov. Jan Brewer said the state will likely appeal the ruling and seek to get the judge’s order overturned. But for now, opponents of the law have prevailed: The provisions that most angered opponents will not take effect, including

sections that required officers to check a person’s immigration status while enforcing other laws. The judge also delayed parts of the law that required immigrants to carry their papers at all times, and made it illegal for undocumented workers to solicit employment in public places – a move aimed at day laborers. In addition, the judge blocked officers from making warrantless arrests of suspected illegal immigrants. “Requiring Arizona law enforcement officials and agencies to determine the immigration status of every person who is arrested burdens lawfully-present aliens because their liberty will be restricted while

kind of information “stovepiping� have produced the opposite problem – amassing so much data that officials complain it’s hard to make sense of it, and as the WikiLeaks incident shows, keep it secret. Both intelligence officials and outside experts suggested that agency chiefs may push to limit access to electronic “portals� that have provided growing data access to intelligence officers, diplomats and troops around the world. And others predicted tighter scrutiny by an administration that has already pushed aggressively to investigate and prosecute leakers. On the other hand, lawmakers on Capitol Hill worry the leaking incident will give the nation’s 16 intelligence agencies an excuse to go back to old ways of holding back some information as “too sensitive� to be shared.

Julian Assange didn’t say whether he meant he had no idea who leaked the documents or whether his organization simply could not be sure. But he did say the added layer of secrecy helps protect the site’s sources from spy agencies and hostile corporations.

War leaks may spur a return to silence WASHINGTON (AP) – Dismayed by the massive war-documents leak, intelligence experts are raising alarms that post-Sept. 11 changes promoting information sharing have made it too easy to lose control of the nation’s secrets. Some intelligence veterans say it’s time to rethink how widely classified material is shared at lower levels or, at the very least, to step up monitoring of the people who are given access. “Frankly, we all knew this was going to happen,� says former CIA Director Michael Hayden. He predicts “a new emphasis on protecting.� The intelligence failures that led to the attacks of 9/11 were blamed on government agencies hoarding information instead of sharing it, missing crucial clues that could have headed off al-Qaida’s strikes.

STAN SPANGLE: Memorial to Dwight D. Eisenhower takes shape. TOMORROW

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


Peaches are wonderful; campaign won’t be Peaches are incredible this year. Absolutely delicious. Sweet as candy. I can’t remember when they ever tasted this good. If you haven’t had one yet, get them before it’s too late. Peach season ends with the beginning of campaign season. With campaigns starting up, we can agree they will not be that incredible, not at all that delicious and promise to leave a sour taste in our mouths. Watch out for the misinformers, the statistical manipulators and the down right liars. One party seems to do this more than the other, even to fellow party members. Probably because of the obscene amounts of money they receive from corporations. The most damaging lie I remember was in the Bush vs. McCain primaries of 2000. The Bush folks called registered Republicans in South Carolina, reminded them to vote on Tuesday, then mentioned McCain fathered a black child. Subtle little lie, which worked. The Bush administration that was built on these lies,



produced these endless wars, endless recession. What lies become. Nowadays, it’s the Obamascare rhetoric; health care reform will kill us, financial reform will end banking, ending tax breaks for millionaires will bankrupt the treasury and Obama is sinister. Somehow, we need to become better at assessing truth. If you get an e-mail with negative news about a candidate that you haven’t read in the local paper, it’s most likely a lie or at best, a mistruth. An example: “Everyone that ate peaches in 1878 died.” That sentence is 100 percent true, they all died, though peaches had nothing to do with their deaths. Most died from old age. By the way, Obama is sinister. As was Reagan, Bush 41, Clinton, Garfield, Hoover, Truman and Ford. They were all sinister, which means left-handed.

Parkway must be protected


Founded in 1883



he Blue Ridge Parkway’s 75th Anniversary Festival, a multiday, multivenue will be staged Sept. 10-12 in and around Cumberland Knob, where parkway construction began on Sept. 11, 1935. As you know if you read The Associated Press report in newspapers across the state last weekend, the Blue Ridge Parkway is the largest landscape architecture project in the history of the United States. But, even though several land trusts have worked for years to protect more than 30,000 acres along the parkway “viewshed” by purchasing adjacent land or negotiating conservation easements, “the National Park Service struggles to keep forest and the development beyond it from closing in on it.” That’s why the Conservation Trust of North Carolina is pushing a bill introduced in both houses of Congress, seeking $75 million over five years “to buy land and easements for 50,000 additional high-priority acres along the (469-mile) parkway.” Trespasses by adjacent landowners, poachers harvesting galax, black cohosh and ginseng, trash dumpers and natural pests and overgrown trees teaming up with recession budget cuts have teamed up to make conservationists jobs even more difficult. There is hope for recovery, however. Some of that hope comes in the form of the Blue Ridge Parkway 75 Symposium, scheduled for Oct. 14-16 in Roanoke, Va. “Imagining the Blue Ridge Parkway for the 21st century is a two-part conference and conversation about the past and future of this national treasure on the occasion of its 75th anniversary,” the Blue Ridge Parkway website reports. Virginia Tech’s College of Natural Resources in cooperation with Blue Ridge Parkway 75 Inc. will host the symposium. This will be the second in a two-part conversation about the past and future of the Blue Ridge Parkway. The first part was held in April at Appalachian State University. The program is designed to assist community leaders, businesses, economic development authorities, tourism offices, Parkway officials, and supporters of the Parkway in working together for a sustainable future for the Parkway. Do your part for conservation. Take advantage of the various ways to get involved in the preservation of the Blue Ridge Parkway –

Let ‘Fearless,’ Christ help you get over your fear




lease allow me a few moments to review some facts: Our country is in a financial crisis and yet President Obama loaned Brazilian Petrobras Oil Co. $10 billion in government money for “deep waterâ€? drilling off its coast. He has banned deep water drilling for America. Just last week, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton “unveiledâ€? $500 million in government aid projects to Pakistan in an attempt to counter “rampant anti-Americanism.â€? One such program is to boost their mango exports. Whoo-whoo! Obama has made the statement that we are to share technology with the Muslim world. It was mentioned again in the above news article. â€œâ€Ś the United States was interested in supplying nuclear technology to Pakistan ‌ they have some concerns.â€? I have a lot of concerns!!! Have you heard about the Muslim mosque planned for Ground Zero in New York City? In regards to tolerance for all religions, but respect for those who died on Sept. 11, 2002, this consideration



goes beyond the pale. Obama campaigned with “no new taxes!â€? He looked straight in the camera many times and told low income and middle America he would not raise taxes. Now we find out that the new Health Care law will essentially be a new tax! Another promise Obama made before the Health Care law went into effect – no government money would be spent on abortion ... now we hear that government money will be used in Pennsylvania and New Mexico for abortions. And, la pièce de rĂŠsistance: Arizona’s new immigration’s law. If one reads the actual legislation, there is nothing unconstitutional about it. Not only is the federal government beyond their bounds, but Mexico has the audacity to think it can dictate to an individual state in the United States of America. Did you know, until recently, illegal immigration was a criminal offense in Mexico? Their law was changed in 2008, but it now reads very similar to

Arizona’s new law. In addition to Mexico, Bolivia, Colombia, El Salvador, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Paraguay and Peru have filed separate but almost identical lawsuits. A federal judge accepted Mexico’s filing on July 1 but has not yet ruled on the other countries’ suits. The only way to stop some of the inexcusable legislation is to make sure you vote in November and take as many people with you as you can. The great thing about this country is that we can bounce back. Hopefully, some of our legislators will be retired after November and then maybe some others will be dealt with in other ways. We can undo every “bad� piece of legislation passed. Some need to be tweaked, some changed completely. As for other countries telling America what to do ... he was before my time, but I have read about him and he was known as “Give ‘em Hell Harry.� Harry Truman would have known how to handle Mexico and other countries south of the border just fine.

Virtues of the individual


here are certain economic systems that promote the virtues of the individual more so than others. Although, at a certain level there will always be people at the top who succeed, there will always be another set of people on the economic fringe who are more vulnerable to the economic systems in which they live and work in. And, just as well, there will always be individuals who occupy the lower strata of the economic stratosphere that have little or no hope of obtaining a higher standard of living; either out of circumstances that are outside of their control or out of their upholding of a value system which keeps them there. So, in order to accurately access the value system of competing economic frameworks it is

best to look at those on the fringe of either becoming something great or continuing in mediocOPINION rity. Two hunArmstrong dred years Williams from now, capitalism and free markets still will be the best economic system

Schwarzenegger released a new executive order requiring state workers to take three unpaid days off per month starting in August. State workers were furloughed a total of 46 days when Schwarzenegger issued a similar order in February 2009.

CHICAGO (AP) – Rod Blagojevich’s fate was in the hands of jurors Wednesday as they began deciding whether the impeached Illinois governor tried to sell an appointment to President Barack Obama’s former Senate seat and schemed to use his political power for personal gain.

Prosecutors loaded two carts of exhibits they introduced at the trial that a marshal would wheel into the jury room. “I’m not expecting� a speedy verdict, Judge James B.

TEHACHAPI, Calif. (AP) – Hundreds of firefighters gained ground Wednesday against the most destructive of two big wildfires that have burned homes and forced 2,300 people to evacuate mountain communities on the edge of the Mojave Desert and in the southern Sierra Nevada.

The firefighting command revised the number of destroyed structures down to 25, and Kern County Fire Department Battalion Chief Dean Boller said most were homes. Fire officials initially estimated 30 to 40 homes were lost. Another 150 homes in the loosely connected community remained threatened. The area is usually so gusty that wind farms line ridges, but Wednesday afternoon the weather was cooperating with the 800 firefighters on the lines, producing only light breezes.

Community challenge



High Point leaders focus on future, ask public for help BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – Speakers at the High Point Chamber of Commerce’s State of the Community luncheon on Wednesday posed a question directed to the public and said the answer could continue to improve conditions in High Point. “What can you do for your community?” asked city manager Strib Boynton during a presentation. Boynton was the first of the event’s three guest speakers also including Guilford County Board of Commissioners Chairman Skip Alston and Amos Quick, vice-chairman of the Guilford

County Board of Education. Boynton said the city had overcome a difficult year by making numerous budget cuts while keeping its major bond and capital projects on track, cleaning up debris from the March 28 tornadoes that struck High Point within one week and cracking down on crime. During the last several years, the city made efforts to reduce crime, and public safety leaders led those efforts by asking the community, “What can you do to help?,” Boynton said. In response, various neighborhood watch groups emerged, he said. Officials reported significant drops in burglary, larceny and auto theft in 2009.

He also said the City Project needed continuing support to revitalize the N. Main Street area. “We’ve poured $1.3 million into the City Project,” he said. “There’s another $15 million or so on the table to keep them moving forward... We need one or more private developers to step forward with plans to do something (in the Uptowne area).” Alston said the county also had overcome a difficult budget planning period that resulted in the elimination of 60 county positions, but the county had succeeded in not increasing property taxes. “Although difficult, the commission was also able to maintain the same funding to the school

system as we did last year,” he said, also noting that community-based organizations in High Point, the High Point Market Authority and the Shakespeare Festival also received the same amount of funding as last year. And the budget planning process for next year already has begun, Alston said. “The challenges our county is facing would be the same challenges any small business is facing such as lower sales tax and low property values,” he said. “We have to begin to think outside the box to bring in county revenue. This will require efforts from all of us.” | 888-3617

DAVIDSON COUNTY – Davidson County Commissioner Cathy Dunn, along with numerous elected officials, will hold a public meeting tonight to discuss why it’s important for a state takeover of four hydroelectric dams operated by Alcoa Power Generating Inc. on the Yadkin River. “I personally feel that we need to recapture our water back,” Dunn said. “Alcoa really has not been a good corporate citizen and they are using our water and all the profits that go to them. They are having no benefit to the state of North Carolina. The plants are closed. They do not employ anybody anymore.” The meeting will be held at 6:15 p.m. at Dunn’s High Rock Lake home at 1875 Starboard Reach, Lexington. Dunn, who can be reached at 798-2209, said Sen. Fletcher Hartsell, R-Cabarrus, Sen. Stan Bingham, R-Davidson, Rep. Hugh Holliman, D-Davidson and House majority leader, N.C. Secretary of Commerce Keith Crisco and North Carolina Deputy Attorney General Faison Hicks will attend the meeting. “We’ve got a whole list of people coming ... and many of these people can answer questions anybody has and I feel that it is going to be an education for everybody,” Dunn said. “There’s just so much misinformation that’s going around. I’ve had people ask me questions about it. They don’t understand what’s going on.” Alcoa, a worldwide leading producer and manager of primary aluminum, fabricated aluminum and alumina facilities, is seeking a new 50-year license to operate the dams on the Yadkin River. The company’s license expired about two years ago and Alcoa has been operating under extended licenses while it waits approval on the relicensing from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. Mike Belwood, an Alcoa spokesman, said his company did not get an invite for tonight’s meeting. He said Alcoa representatives will not attend the meeting. “Throughout this process we have been more than willing to appear at public forums and talk about our project, and explain to people why we think we deserve another licensing,” he said. “We have, however, decided not to attend this meeting because it does not appear at this point that there is an interest in creating a balanced presentation.” | 888-3657

Authorities charge two in probe of stolen goods ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

RANDOLPH COUNTY – Two people face charges following an investigation into a stolen goods case in Randolph and Davidson counties. The Randolph County Sheriff’s Office Community Crimes Task Force on Tuesday seized numerous items thought to have been stolen after receiving information about the location where the items were stored. The next day, sheriff’s detectives working with the task force executed a search warrant at a residence on U.S. 220 Business in Randleman.

The site is the residence of Thomas Troy Nance Jr., who was one of two people arrested in the case, according to the sheriff’s office. During the search, numerous items that had been reported stolen were recovered, primarily lawn equipment, deputies said. The items had been reported stolen from various locations in Davidson and Randolph counties. Authorities did not disclose a final tally of what was seized, what its estimated monetary value was or when the goods were reported stolen. Nance, 56, was charged with three felonious counts of pos-


session of stolen goods, two felonious counts of altering serial numbers and one misdemeanor count of possession of stolen goods, according to the sheriff’s office. Nance was released on a $10,000 unsecured bond, deputies said. The other suspect in the case is Michael Rochelle Drake, 39, of W. Guilford Street, Thomasville, who was charged with three felonious counts of larceny and three counts of possession of stolen goods, according to the sheriff’s office. Drake was booked into the Davidson County Jail under a $9,000 bond.

Priest pleads guilty to abusing boy in NC MARION (AP) – A retired Roman Catholic priest from Greene County, Tenn., has pleaded guilty in a North Carolina court to sexually abusing a boy during a trip there more than 30 years ago. Warren Tucker of Jeffersonville, Ind., has said the Rev. William Casey abused him for five years, beginning in 1975 when he was a fifthgrader at St. Dominic’s church in Kingsport, Tenn. Casey, 76, was given a three-year suspended sentence in McDowell County, N.C., Superior Court on Wednesday. He will be on supervised probation in Tennessee for 24 months and will not have to go to prison if he complies with the conditions of his plea agreement. They include having a sex offender evaluation and completing any recommended treatment. “I tell you, it’s bittersweet someone can plead guilty to a sex crime felony and walk free,” Tucker said after the sentencing. “But the district attorney did the best he could given what he had to deal with.” District Attorney Brad Greenway said North Carolina law at the time of the crime only recognized rape as between a man and a woman. Casey was instead charged with crimes against nature. Diocese of Knoxville Bishop Richard Stika in April banned Casey from serving as a priest after Casey acknowledged the credibility of Tucker’s abuse allegations. In an e-mailed statement sent to the media after the verdict on Wednesday, Stika offered apologies and prayers to Tucker and his family. “I applaud him and other victims of sexual abuse for their bravery in coming forward to seek healing and justice,” he wrote. “I strongly encourage all victims of abuse to do the same.” Casey served at churches in Chattanooga, Greeneville, Rogersville, Farragut and Newport in his 30 years as an active priest before retiring in 1999. After that he filled in at various parishes around the region for vacationing or absent priests. Stika has said there may be other victims.

Judge nominated to be US attorney for central NC RALEIGH (AP) – President Barack Obama has nominated a judge and son of a former state senator to serve as U.S. attorney for the middle district of North Carolina. The White House

said in a news release Wednesday that Ripley Rand was nominated to replace Anna Mills Wagoner. Rand was one of several people recommended for the post by U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan.

Group files complaint on adult homes RALEIGH (AP) – North Carolina’s adult care homes are sometimes dingy and dangerous, violating the rights of the mentally ill residents who live there, according to a report produced by a state advocacy group. Disability Rights North Carolina filed a complaint this week with the U.S. Department of Justice, saying the conditions of the more than 600 facilities are improper. The group said it found dilapidated conditions and reports of violence, including four deaths that came as a result of resident-on-resident attacks between October 2008 and July 2009. “What was alarming about this was the number (of deaths) in a

short period of time, which was really a red flag that this is an overstressed system,� said Vicki Smith, executive director for Disability Rights NC. She said understaffed and undertrained facilities initially designed for elderly patients were ill equipped to handle the influx of mentally ill. Thousands of mentally ill patients have moved into adult care facilities over the past decade — often their only alternative to homelessness. That trend has placed younger patients with mental illness in facilities with frail elderly residents for which the homes were initially supposed to care. North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services Sec-

retary Lanier Cansler said the agency shares concern about the placement of mentally ill patients in adult care homes and the ability to provide the necessary services and safety. He proposed improved assessments and information sharing so that the state can keep track of the mentally ill and identify problems and risks. “These solutions, however, come with a price tag, and the opportunity for increased funding is limited during this period of a sluggish economy and reduced budgets,� Cansler said in a statement. He said the department will work in the meantime to identify opportunities to strengthen the mental health care system.

Loud music ruins reception for many wedding guests


ear Abby: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lost My Appetite in South Carolinaâ&#x20AC;? (June 1) walked out of a wedding reception after waiting for a delayed dinner and suffering through the DJâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;loud, deafening rock â&#x20AC;&#x2122;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; roll music.â&#x20AC;? You chided the writer and suggested he should have asked the hosts to lower the volume somewhat. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my experience this doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work. Insanely loud music is part of the contemporary American culture. I have walked out of at least two wedding receptions because of loud music. A wedding reception is supposed to be an event to enjoy and talk to people. Something is amiss when people are invited to a wedding and become a captive audience, forced to put up with intolerable conditions. Walking out is a reasonable response. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Paul In Chesterfield, Mo. Dear Paul: It was impossible to turn a deaf ear to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;volumeâ&#x20AC;? of letters I received supporting â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lostâ&#x20AC;? for the reasons you expressed. Read on: Dear Abby: Spoiled brides and loopy parents treat weddings like Broadway productions. The guests are just extras in the extravaganza. If people have been invited for dinner and it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t being served, they are justified in leaving. I went to a wedding

and was shocked to learn dinner wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be served until five hours after ADVICE the reception began Dear because Abby â&#x20AC;&#x153;the bride â&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  preferred to dance on an empty stomach.â&#x20AC;? My husband and I left our gift and took our empty stomachs to a restaurant. We heard later that the mother of the bride was angry because more than a dozen guests also left before dinner, while the bride danced merrily on. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; J.G. in Los Angeles Dear Abby: You missed an opportunity to point out to your readers that special dinners are a time for family, friends and new acquaintances to renew, rekindle and update their lives and relationships. It might be wise for future wedding planners to instruct the DJ or band to play soft music â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or none at all â&#x20AC;&#x201C; during dinnertime. Remember, the â&#x20AC;&#x153;bashâ&#x20AC;? goes on after dinner and lasts for hours. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Cathy Lee in Grosse Point Farms, Mich. Dear Abby: That letter made me furious! Because of the 30 extra guests we expected, we rented a larger room, hired an extra waiter and bartender and set up additional tables. Because some guests didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

show up and others left before the meal, we had couples left sitting alone at their tables. The money we could have saved if some of those ungrateful people had simply declined in the RSVP could have gone to the newlyweds to start their household. Whatever happened to courtesy and good manners? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Disappointed Mother in Texas Dear Abby: The comfort of oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guests must be considered in planning an event. I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perfectly acceptable for a guest to leave before dinner, stating, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sorry, but the music has become too loud for me to stay.â&#x20AC;? It is extremely rude of hosts to expect guests to tolerate dangerous, uncomfortable noise levels. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Values My Hearing in N.Y. Dear Abby: The â&#x20AC;&#x153;ruleâ&#x20AC;? that guests must eat dinner because it was paid for is right up there with the assumption that the price of the gift must be equal to the guestsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; share of the cost of the reception. Utter nonsense! It costs the same whether they eat while suffering from the deafening noise or discreetly making an escape. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Common Sense in Illinois DEAR ABBY is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

Canker sore recurrences are common


ear Dr. Donohue: My 7-year-old daughter has a problem with recurrent canker sores. She’s had around six outbreaks a year for the past two years. I’m no expert, but that seems like a lot of canker sores. They’re between her gums and lips, top and bottom. What’s going on here? – A.A.


I understand your concern. An outbreak of canker sores every two months is something no child (or adult) should have to endure. The list of conditions that promote recurrent canker sores includes things like iron and B-vitamin deficiencies, possible food allergies, illnesses such as celiac disease and a sensitivity to sodium lauryl sulfate, a common toothpaste ingredient. If your daughter is otherwise healthy and active, the possibility of a link to a serious illness is extremely small. Parents often fear that something must be wrong with the child’s immune system. Recurrent outbreaks in one body location rarely are the result of a weak immune system. On the list of possibilities, sodium lauryl sulfate is worth pursuing. Take a look at the ingredients in her toothpaste. If sodium lauryl sulfate is there, change to another. It’s also worthwhile to look into the food link. This takes more than two or three observations of what she ate in the day or two before an outbreak. Most canker sores heal in 10 to 14 days. They’re not contagious, and probably don’t represent















an infection. What causes them is an unsettled matter. Recurrences are common, even HEALTH as many as your Dr. Paul daughter Donohue has. On the ■■■ bright side, they tend to lessen as the child grows older. Anything that takes away the sores’ sting will be greatly appreciated by your daughter. Diphenhydramine (Benadryl Children’s Allergy Liquid), swished in the mouth three times a day and then spit out, can dampen canker sore pain. It doesn’t require a prescription. Lidocaine Viscous, which is dabbed on the sore with a cotton-tipped applicator, is another way to deaden the pain. Other medicines containing a cortisone-related drug also can be applied to the sores. They do require a prescription. Dear Dr. Donohue: For many years, I have put up with floaters. I am quite nearsighted, and my eye doctor says they’re common in nearsighted people. Last week, I saw flashes of light. I called the doctor, and he saw me that day. He told me I had a vitreous detachment. Is this serious? – L.P. The vitreous is a thick, gellike material that fills the back two-thirds of the eye. It provides support for the eye. The vitreous abuts on the retina, the sensitive lay-

er of cells that transfers incoming images to the brain. A vitreous detachment means it has pulled away from the retina. In doing so, it stimulated the retina to cause the flashing lights you saw. The doctor made sure your retina was OK. Flashes of light also can be a signal that the retina is tearing. For the present, nothing else needs to be done. The doctor will examine you again in a few months to be positive the retina is remaining in good health. Dear Dr. Donohue: My doctor gave me an EKG as part of a physical exam. I received a written report from the doctor that said I had a first-degree heart block. I called the office to find out the meaning of that. The receptionist said the doctor would call back. He didn’t, and I called three more times. Still no return of the calls. I’m not calling again. Will you explain this to me? – R.W. When you combine “block” with “heart,” people are bound to get nervous. A first-degree heart block, however, isn’t a diagnosis that merits worry. It means the electrical impulse that generates each heartbeat is a bit slower than it ordinarily is. The slowness is measured in milliseconds, something you can’t detect. It doesn’t cause any symptoms. It’s not a sign of current or future trouble. About your doctor – that’s another matter.

Earl Scruggs revisits scene of bluegrass’ birth CHRIS TALBOTT AP ENTERTAINMENT WRITER


ASHVILLE, Tenn. – It’s been nearly 65 years, but Tut Taylor still vividly remembers the night Earl Scruggs changed it all. It was Dec. 8, 1945, and Taylor was by his radio in Georgia listening to the Grand Ole Opry from

the Ryman Auditorium, as usual. He was a big Bill Monroe fan and that night the Kentuckian’s Blue Grass Boys featured a brand new, 21-year-old banjo player who favored the three-finger picking style. It wasn’t exactly a new way to play the banjo. Others had used it and had even played the style on the radio.

No one played it like Earl Scruggs, though. Add Monroe’s mandolin and Lester Flatt’s guitar and it made such an impression that Taylor has no problem remembering most of the details all these decades later – though the name of that first song escapes him. “That whole Opry House just come alive

and I thought it was going to explode,” said Taylor, a mandolin and dobro player who has become a friend of Scruggs. “The Opry House is like a guitar box. It absorbs sounds and makes them sound better. Well, that night you could almost see the walls going in and out from the volume of hands clapping and screaming and hollering. It was

maybe a lot like some of the rock ’n’ roll things they had, you know. But this was a new sound, it was a pretty sound and a welcome sound.” Scruggs, now 86, commemorated the 65th anniversary of that night – considered by many to be the evening bluegrass was born – last week during a performance at the Ryman.

CBS will take a new view of daytime after the end of “As the World Turns.” When the soap opera concludes its 54-year run in September, it will be replaced by an hour-long daily talk show with six celebrity co-hosts – all women, an echo of ABC’s popular “The View” series. CBS says the hosts of the as-yet untitled daytime show include Sharon Osbourne; Sara Gilbert of TV’s “Roseanne” fame; Holly Robinson Peete from “Celebrity Apprentice”; Broadway actress Marissa Jaret Winokur; Leah Remini (pictured above) of “The King of Queens”; and Julie Chen, who hosts CBS’ “Big Brother” and “The Early Show.” Gilbert developed the program, which will be the network’s only daytime talk show, and is its executive producer. It’s set for a fall debut, but a specific date was not announced. The show will take a moms’ view of entertainment and news stories. The hosts all have children, ranging in age from infants to adults. Chen will give up her “Early Show” co-anchor role but will continue to appear on the morning program, CBS News said. Chen, who is married to CBS Chief Executive Leslie Moonves, will remain as “Big Brother” host.

Thursday, July 29, 2010 CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Wil Wheaton, 38; Martina McBride, 44; Ken Burns, 57; Geddy Lee, 57 HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Do your research and look past the obvious this year, if you want to get ahead. There is plenty of room for advancement if you are willing to make mental, physical and emotional changes. Money from an unusual source is in the picture. Restraint will be part of your success. There is plenty to learn and implement that will lead to your victory. Your numbers are 6, 11, 20, 22, 35, 39, 48 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t give in to temptation. It will end up costing you, even if it appears to have the potential to make you well off. Mixing business with pleasure isn’t going to help you get what you want. Do a great job and let your work speak for itself. ★★★ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Get involved in activities you enjoy with the people you have the most fun with and you will enhance your personal relationships. Don’t let someone else’s uncertainty cause you to miss the events that will lead to closer connections with colleagues. ★★★★ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t expect smooth sailing when addressing emotional issues that affect home, family and friends. Face each situation before it escalates to proportions you can no longer handle on your own. Criticism will follow if you have to call in an outsider. ★★ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t fight the inevitable when you need to embrace change and what it can bring. If you are open, you will come to realize the events that take place are to your advantage. Love is growing. ★★★★★ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): A change of plans, location or events is heading your way. Turn whatever you face into a positive experience and you will teach those around you what having a good attitude can do to help you through troubled times. ★★★ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Take your time and monitor whatever situation you face, especially if it has to do with finance. Once you have all the facts, you can make an educated move. You should address any situations that deal with a love relationship. ★★★ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You’ll have plenty to think about if you let your personal life intertwine with your professional goals. You’ll attract someone who can influence your future. The choice you make can leave you in a vulnerable position if you aren’t upfront regarding your feelings and plans. ★★★ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Doing too much for someone will be costly. The more you give, the more everyone will want and expect. Sharing emotional thoughts will help others understand where you are coming from. ★★★★★ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You’ll be walking a fine line when it comes to both personal and professional dealings. If you don’t agree with someone, keep it to yourself. A move may be required for you to advance. ★★ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): There is money to be made and contracts formulated and signed. Push for everything you want but be willing to give back in return. A past partner may have something to bring to the table. Don’t hesitate to reunite. ★★★★ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You may want to start something with someone off-limits. Consider if you are breaking any rules before you make your move. A setback at this time will be costing emotionally and financially and will adversely affect personal and family relationships. ★★★ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t make a move without giving it plenty of thought. You will be prone to make mistakes right now if you act impulsively. It’s better to be safe than sorry, especially with professional and personal partnerships. ★★★





“If you can’t stand the heat, get an air conditioner for the kitchen.” – Grapefruit Someone described bridge as a social pastime that’s not always sociable. He must have had my club in mind: The players are spirited, and contentious “discussions” are common. Today’s deal caused an East-Westwrangle.Against four spades, West led the king of clubs, and East signaled with the nine. West then led the ace and queen. He expected East to overruff dummy, but South discarded dummy’s king of hearts and took the rest.

TRICK TWO “Lead a heart at Trick Two,” East argued. “I’ll win, return a club and overruff dummy on the third club. “You asked me to continue clubs,” West snorted. “If you play the deuce on the first club, I’ll shift.” “I had to play the nine so you’d know I had a doubleton,” said East. Both players had a point. I think East should encourage in clubs but West should shift anyway, but expert opinion would vary. That’s one thing that makes bridge unique.

DAILY QUESTION You hold: S 9 H 10 6 4 D Q J 6 C A K Q 10 7 4. Your partner opens one spade, you respond two clubs and he bids two hearts. The opponents pass. What do you say? ANSWER: Since an ordinary minimum hand for partner such as Q 10 7 6 5, A K 7 5, K 9, J 5 will make it all but cold, bid 3NT. A rebid of three clubs would not be too encouraging. It would show long clubs but minimum values for a response at the level of two: perhaps a hand such as 9, A 6 4, 7 6, K Q 10 7 6 4 2. West dealer Both sides vulnerable

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

Gloria Stuart is probably best known as Old Rose in the 1997 blockbuster “Titanic.”

Academy honors 100-year-old Stuart MIKE CIDONI AP ENTERTAINMENT WRITER


OS ANGELES – Gloria Stuart lives like her days are numbered, and little wonder. The Oscar-nominated actress, best known as Old Rose in the 1997 blockbuster “Titanic,” turned 100 on July 4. “I would say I don’t notice the difference between 100 and, say, 90,” Stuart said while sitting in the bonsai-lined garden of her home in the Brentwood district of Los Angeles. “You’re still frail, feeble, and full of you-know-what,” she continued, with a laugh. Truth is, the only thing obviously frail about Stuart is her voice, which is just a few decibels above a whisper. And while she moves a little slower than some, Stuart said she still has many things to do and places to go. She prints books. She paints. She gardens. Last Thursday, she was honored by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in Beverly

Hills for a film career spanning eight decades. Her first contract was with Universal, where she quickly became a favorite of the legendary James Whale, who would direct two of Stuart’s most highly regarded movies, “The Old Dark House” (1932) opposite Boris Karloff and the hit “The Invisible Man” (1933) opposite Claude Rains. The problem was that most of the rest of what Universal give Stuart “wasn’t garbage, but it wasn’t first-rate, second-rate, third-rate. Maybe fourth-rate,” she recalled. “And I was looking at the studio next door, and there was Ann Harding, Claudette Colbert, Marlene Dietrich at Paramount. And then, at RKO, was Katharine Hepburn and so many others. And I was there at Universal, with a horse.” She’d eventually move over to 20th Century Fox, where her output included a blast of films, including the Shirley Temple favorite “Rebec-

ca of Sunnybrook Farm” (1938). But Stuart’s star didn’t rise as high as she hoped, and, by the mid 1940s, one of the first members of the Screen Actors Guild wouldn’t act again on the screen for some 40 years. “I didn’t get to be Greta Garbo,” she said, smiling. “Terrible. A terrible blow. It took me a long time to get over that. But I’m over that.” Then again, Garbo didn’t get to be in “Titanic,” which broke boxoffice records and earned Stuart, then 87, her first Oscar nomination. Of all her films, Stuart is most proud of the James Cameron epic, and that, of all her roles, she most relates with the character of Old Rose – the 100-year-old woman with the heart of a young lover. “I think that’s the important thing,” Stuart said. “If you’re full of love, admiration, appreciation of the beautiful things there are in this life, you have it made, really. And I have it made.”

“BUNCOMBE COUNTY POTTERY” continues through Saturday at the North Carolina Pottery Center, 233 East Ave., Seagrove. The exhibit includes contemporary pieces and historical pieces from potters in the Asheville area. Pieces also are for sale. Exhibit hours are 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Tuesdays-Saturdays. 8738430, “ARNOLD MESCHES: The FBI Files” continues through Sept. 5 at Weatherspoon Art Museum, The University of North Carolina at Greensboro. The exhibit chronicles the FBI’s surveillance of Mensches, an artist and activist, for 27 years, from 1945 to 1972. He will discuss his work at 5 p.m. Aug. 31.

‘Schmucks’ director Roach specializes in farce JAKE COYLE AP ENTERTAINMENT WRITER



Jay Roach finds career as director of comedies. It’s a dark premise, but Roach keeps the tone light and good-natured, with things enlivened by appearances by Jemaine Clement (“Flight of the Conchords”) as an erotically charged artist and Zach Galifianakis (“The Hangover”) as an overly confident IRS agent. “ ‘Meet the Parents’ and ‘Austin Powers’ are both movies I watched several times before I really did a lot of comedy,” says Clement. “When you love films like that, I feel kind of indebted to those people even not really knowing them. So if Jay asked me to do something, I would do it as a fan.” The New Mexico-raised Roach, tall and gaunt with a gentle, polite manner, wouldn’t seem

like an obvious shepherd of over-the-top comedy. His most natural subject is politics, a muscle he finally got to flex in the acclaimed 2008 HBO film “Recount,” which won three Emmys, including a directing award for Roach. He has two more political films in the works – a film about the 2008 election, and one about Mark Felt, the FBI agent known as the Watergate source “Deep Throat.” “Because I got addicted to comedy, because I was getting offered comedies, I enjoyed writing that way,” Roach says. “But I think I always hoped to do a wide range of films.” With “Austin Powers,” Roach realized he was best off giving his actors, many of whom were

some places that they aren’t bankable.” Roach stops himself: “Let’s talk about the films that lived.” “Schmucks,” broad and crowd-pleasing, seems likely to con-

tinue Roach’s box-office success. It steadily progresses, piling on the farce until the climatic dinner scene, which took two weeks to shoot and which comprises about a quarter of the film.

EW YORK – Jay Roach’s education as a director of comedies came not in college or film school, but in self-imposed study shortly before making “Austin Powers.” Having studied prelaw as an undergrad at Stanford and mostly struggled for a decade as a screenwriter and cinematographer after film school at USC, Roach’s path to becoming one of the top comedy directors in Hollywood was far from assured. Having hit it off with Roach at a dinner party, Mike Myers insisted Roach – despite his little notable experience – should direct the film. To cram on comedy, Roach studied silent films, taking notes on movement and physical choreography. He gravitated toward a “Woody Allen form of farce” and character-based films by Hal Ashby such as “Harold and Maude” and “Being There.” He found a taste for French comedy, such as “La Cage Aux Folles.” Roach’s homework has served him well. He has since directed all three “Austin Powers” movies, “Meet the Parents” and its first sequel, “Meet the Fockers.” Collectively, his comedies have grossed nearly $1 billion, and that’s not counting those he’s produced, including “Borat” and “Bruno.” He has made farce a speciality by giving actors room to craft absurd, heightened situations that Roach enjoys stretching toward calamity – like slow-motion train wrecks. “I love anxiety as a driving energy for comedy,” says Roach during a recent interview over coffee. “That gap between whatever you make up for yourself and reality is where almost every moment in comedy comes from.” Roach’s latest is “Dinner for Schmucks,” which opens Friday and is roughly based on the 1998 French film “The Dinner Game.” It stars Paul Rudd as Tim, an ambitious businessman whose boss invites him to a “dinner for idiots,” where everyone is expected to bring a particularly outrageous fool as a guest. He finds his date in the delusional but earnest Barry (Steve Carell), who proceeds to accidentally ruin almost everything in Tim’s life.

talented at improvising – Myers, Will Ferrell, Seth Green – space to riff. “Directors get too much credit, in a way, in comedy,” he says. “You just have to give it room to have its life and then just watch it live and thrive and try to keep spinning it a little bit.” For “Schmucks,” Roach shot more than 900,000 feet of film, which is several hundred thousand feet more than normal. One key, Roach says, is that he typically rehearses on film, which means a scene’s technical aspects are already in place as the actors improvise. As far as the cutting of all that film, Rudd called Roach “the ultimate collaborator,” asking for input on which takes to use. The professional low point for Roach, 53, came with “Used Guys,” a comedy he was to direct starring Jim Carrey and Ben Stiller. After months of preparation, Fox and Sony Pictures Entertainment, wary of its $112 million budget, shut it down just weeks before it was to begin shooting in 2006. “Used Guys” was set in a future where women had taken over the world after men had destroyed themselves with war and performance-enhancing sports drinks. “That was a hard one to face,” says Roach. “I was trying to do spectacle and maybe there is a predisposition towards futuristic comedies in

THE BIG DAY: Clinton wedding brings spotlight to New York town. 6D


CORNELIUS – After trying to make do in less than top-notch equipment since the start of the 2008 season, Bobby Labonte is with a solid team for 2011. JTG Daugherty racing announced Wednesday that Labonte will drive its No. 47 Toyotas in 2011. The announcement comes a day after JTG said that Marcos Ambrose would be leaving the team following the season finale at Homestead. The ride is the best for Labonte since he was left searching for a ride during the breakup of Petty Enterprises at the end of the 2008 season. He started last season in cars fielded by Hall of Fame Racing and Yates Racing, but the pairing was not competitive outside of a top five early in the year, leading to Labonte’s ouster for seven races late in the season. Labonte drove for TRG Racing in those seven races and stayed with that team at the begin-

ning of this year even though he realized it would be hard pressed to post top-10 finishes. He quit as the team’s fulltime driver in June after he was ordered to park three times because of lack of funding. LaLabonte bonte has scrambled to pick up rides since then. The 2000 Cup champion’s last victory came in 2003. He has not been in a first-tier car since leaving Joe Gibbs Racing for Petty Enterprises in 2005. After posting three top-five finishes for Petty in 2006, he did not crack the top five again until last season. JTG has a technical alliance with Michael Waltrip Racing and its cars are fielded out of Waltrip’s shops in Cornelius. The change will mark Labonte’s first time in a Toyota. Ambrose is in his fifth season and second in Cup with JTG. He was impressive as a rookie last season, posting four top-five finishes and finishing 18th in points. His best finish was second at Watkins Glen, where he was

expected to do well because of a road-racing background. He has struggled this season, one of the biggest disappointments coming when he lost the lead late at Infineon Raceway when he shut his car off during a caution period and it failed to refire before cars passed him. “JTG Daugherty Racing is a solid race team that has come close to winning races with Marcos Ambrose and I’m looking forward to developing our new partnership in 2011,” Labonte said in a statement. “The team is thriving and their technical alliance with MWR (Michael Waltrip Racing) is intact. It’s great to have next year already set in stone so when this season ends we can begin focusing on next year right away. Everything is in place and we have all the right ingredients to win races together.” Ambrose is speculated to be the replacement for Kasey Kahne at Richard Petty Motorsports. | 888-3556



SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) – The Carolina Panthers signed quarterback Jimmy Clausen to a four-year contract that includes $2.53 million in guarantees on Wednesday, ensuring they’ll have no rookie holdouts for the start of training camp. The second-round pick from Notre Dame agreed to his deal hours before the Panthers reported to Wofford College. He was the last of Carolina’s 10 draft selections to be signed. “With your draft picks, any day they miss it takes a week to catch up,” coach John Fox said. “I think it’s always important to have your draft picks signed. We’ve done pretty well with that over the years.” Agent Gary Wichard and the Panthers worked through the night to reach a deal, which was struck after a fourth-year escalator – a rarity for a second-round pick – was included that tops out at $2.85 million. The total package could be worth as much as $6.3 million. The deal was reached in time for Clausen to report on time. Clausen will likely start practice today as the third-string quarterback behind Matt Moore and Hunter Cantwell, but could eventually challenge Moore for the starting job.

Roush stable after plane crash MILWAUKEE (AP) – NASCAR team owner Jack Roush remained hospitalized in serious but stable condition Wednesday, one day after he walked away from a plane crash in Wisconsin. In a statement, Roush Fenway Racing said Roush is under observation for facial injuries he sustained in the accident. The team said Roush’s passenger, his friend Brenda Stricklin, was treated and released from the hospital Wednesday afternoon. Roush – an aviation buff who survived another crash in 2002 – was attending the Experimental Aircraft Association’s annual AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wis. According to the EAA, a Beechcraft Premier business jet registered to Roush Fenway Racing, LLC was involved in a landing accident at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh around 6:15 p.m. Tuesday.

Mark Nelson resigned as an assistant football coach at East Carolina after the school learned of possible NCAA violations concerning his observation of voluntary summer workouts, school officials said Tuesday night. Athletic director Terry Holland told first-year coach Ruffin McNeill earlier Tuesday that the school’s compliance office was investigating concerns that Nelson evaluated players during summer activities, the AD said in a statement issued by the school. Holland says Nelson met with McNeill, admitted to the violations and offered his resignation as defensive ends coach and special teams coordinator. Holland said the school will report the violations to the NCAA and will cooperate fully with the governing body. The violations are likely to be classified as secondary, he said. McNeill said the search for Nelson’s replacement will begin immediately, adding that he might reshuffle his staff. The Pirates report Aug. 5 for the start of practice.

fter 20-plus years in any business, the natural tendency is to become a bit cynical and hesitant to get too excited by much of anything. Sports is no exception. I’m grateful for the opportunity to serve the readers of The High Point Enterprise for 20-some years and I hope for the chance to serve you for many years to come. It’s an honor and I am humbled. But I’ll be honest. It’s rare that I get pumped up about attending a regular-season pro sporting event anymore. Thousands of events and hundreds of thousands of travel miles can start to run together, although my duties in recent years have

thankfully kept me much closer to home. That’s why I’m a little surprised to admit I was thrilled about the prospects of watching Stephen Strasburg pitch against the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday at Nationals Park. Three friends and I are planning a two-day, mini-vacation trip to Washington this weekend to catch Phils-Nats games on Saturday night and Sunday afternoon. It’s always great to spend time with good buddies. The thought of seeing Strasburg in person added fuel to the sporting flame. As of Tuesday, the projected pitching matchup for Sunday’s 1:35 p.m. game pitted Cole Hamels vs. Strasburg.

I confess. I was pumped about the matchup. So pumped, in fact, that my overwhelming fear of bridges, tunnels, heights, rivers, overpasses, rock slides and other travel-related bugaboos hadn’t kicked in yet. But Strasburg was scratched from his scheduled start against the Braves on Tuesday night. That pushed him back in the rotation, and most likely out of my viewing range on Sunday. Bummer. So much for seeing Strasburg in person. But I’m still excited about the trip – phenom or no phenom.

Haren says he’ll start Saturday for Angels ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Newly acquired Angels pitcher Dan Haren expects to make his next start as scheduled despite a bruised forearm. The three-time All-Star plans to make his second start for Los Angeles on Saturday against the AL West-leading Texas Rangers. The right-hander was acquired Sunday in a trade that sent lefty Joe Saunders and three minor league prospects to the Arizona Diamondbacks. He was drilled on his pitching arm by a line drive off the bat of Boston’s Kevin Youkilis in the fifth inning of his Angels debut on Monday night. X-rays were negative. “As of now, barring any setbacks, I should be good to go,” Haren said Wednesday. The eight-year veteran has made 190 consecutive starts without missing a turn since 2005.

Alabama teen shoots 57 in State Junior

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) — Bobby Wyatt shot a 57 at the Alabama Boys State Junior Championship. The University of Alabama-bound teen, who turns 18 this weekend, had 12 birdies, an eagle and five pars Wednesday on the par71, 6,628-yard course at the Country Club of Mobile. His birdie putt hung on the lip on the 18th green and he had to settle for par. Wyatt needed 23 putts total and shot a 9under 26 on the front nine. The previous low round in the State Junior was 61 by Glenn Northcutt in 2004 on a par-70 layout which measured just over 5,000 yards. Wyatt has won the state’s junior championship the past three years. Ryo Ishikawa’s 58 in the final round of The Crowns tournament on the Japan Tour on May 2 is the lowest score on a major tour.

The HiToms’ Ben Grisz scrambles back to first base to avoid a tag by Martinsville’s Jeff Forgerson during Wednesday night’s Coastal Plain League game at Finch Field in Thomasville.


THOMASVILLE – For one night, at least, everything went right for the HiToms. Two years removed from three straight Coastal Plain League championships, the HiToms came into Wednesday night’s game with Martinsville losers of five straight and 13 of their past 14. But the Tommies got a dominant pitching performance from J.J. Jankowski and some timely hitting en route to an impressive 3-0 victory over Martinsville. Jankowski tossed a completegame three-hitter, striking out 15 and only walking one to pick up his second win of the season. Jankowski, who made only his fourth start of the summer, was relieved to get his team back in the win column. “I was just really focused on hitting my spots,”

Jankowski said. “I just wanted to work on one batter at a time. I was trying to set up pitches, and whatever Dave (Roney, the HiToms’ catcher) called, I threw it.” That was a perfect plan from the start. Jankowski retired the first eight batters he faced and fanned nine in the first four innings. The Mustangs only got two runners past first base, but Jankowski worked his way out of those mini-jams in the fifth and eighth innings. Martinsville starter Chris Briere wasn’t quite as efficient but he kept the HiToms off the scoreboard for five innings. But the Tommies finally took advantage of the opportunities they had – something sorely missing from the offense all summer – to break the game open in the sixth. Roney led off with a double, then moved to third on Tanner Mathis’ base hit. Cass Hargis then lofted an RBI double down

the right field line to score Roney, and Tyler Frederick’s grounder to short plated Mathis one out later. Zak Wasserman laced a single up the middle to score Hargis from second and round out the scoring. The three-run burst was all the Tommies needed with Jankowski in complete control. “It’s been a real long season,” HiToms skipper Tom Dorzweiler, whose club moved to 14-32, said. “It’s great to see J.J. come out and throw a game like that; he’s worked hard all year. “And our problem all year long’s been we’ll get guys on base and they get stranded. So we’ve been working on giving yourself up if it scores a run or moves a guy over. Tonight it finally worked.” Hargis and Mathis led the Tommies at the plate with two hits each. The HiToms travel to Martinsville tonight, then return home for a Friday matchup with Columbia.

Phillips, Reds slam Brewers THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MILWAUKEE – Brandon Phillips smacked a 450-foot grand slam and Travis Wood earned his first win in the majors in Cincinnati’s 10-2 victory over Milwaukee on Wednesday. The Reds scored 10 straight runs, capped by Phillips’ shot and Joey Votto’s solo homer in the eighth, for their 30th come-from-behind victory of the season.

of home in a decade, and Tim Hudson shut down Washington the way he almost always does, helping the NL East-leading Braves beat the last-place Nationals 3-1.

PHILLIES 7, DIAMONDBACKS 1 PHILADELPHIA – Roy Halladay threw a six-hitter and top prospect Domonic Brown had two hits and two RBIs in his major league debut to lead the streaking Philadelphia Phillies to a 7-1 victory over slumping Arizona on Wednesday night.

BRAVES 3, NATIONALS 1 WASHINGTON – Rookie Jason Heyward gave Atlanta its first steal

ASTROS 8, CUBS 1 HOUSTON – Carlos Lee hit two

RED SOX 7, ANGELS 3 ANAHEIM, Calif. – Marco Scutaro hit a tiebreaking grand slam in the eighth inning, and Boston wrapped up a 10-game West Coast road trip with a 7-3 victory over Los Angeles.

TWINS 6, ROYALS 4 KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Delmon Young had a three-run homer as Minnesota finished a three-game sweep of Kansas City.

Strasburg first felt tightness ‘couple days ago’ WASHINGTON (AP) – Nationals rookie righthander Stephen Strasburg first sensed tightness in his pitching shoulder “a couple days ago,” he said Wednesday, chalking it up to “kind of hitting the wall a little bit.” A day after being scratched minutes before what was supposed to

be the 10th major league start of his much-hyped career, Strasburg said he felt “a lot better” and his range of motion is “starting to come back.” Washington general manager Mike Rizzo and trainer Lee Kuntz said Strasburg did not indicate he had a problem before Tuesday, when his pregame bullpen session

was stopped about a halfdozen throws in. He took anti-inflammatory medicine Wednesday and underwent treatment that Kuntz said included “stretching, strengthening ... using heat, using ice.” But the No. 1 overall pick in the June 2009 amateur draft did not toss a ball. Instead, during batting

practice, Strasburg stood in the right-field grass, chatting with pitching coach Steve McCatty. The plan is for Strasburg to go at least two days – and perhaps three or four – without throwing at all. It’s not clear when he will next pitch in a game; his next scheduled appearance would be Sunday, but that seems unlikely.

Top NASCAR owners hold their own town hall meeting CHARLOTTE (AP) – The top team owners in NASCAR set their individual agendas aside for a unified brainstorming session on how to cut costs and help revive the auto racing industry. “We’re all stakeholders in this thing, and we all want to know ‘What can we do to make this bet-

ter? How can we save some money and help the show?’” team owner Rick Hendrick told The Associated Press on Wednesday, the day after representatives from about 10 race teams gathered at Hendrick Motorsports to discuss ideas. The meeting was an offshoot of the “town hall” style sessions NAS-

CAR has been holding with competitors since early last season to give drivers and teams an opportunity to discuss the issues facing America’s No. 1 racing series. Unable to shake the slide in both attendance and TV ratings, NASCAR and its participants have been working together to re-energize the sport.

Samuel wins Ladies President’s Cup ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

HIGH POINT – Susan Samuel captured the Ladies President’s Cup by three strokes on Wednesday at Willow Creek. Samuel followed her opening-round 71 with a 72 for a two-day total of 143. Helen Runyan placed second at 7175–146, followed by Tucker Crawford at 76-71–147. Jody Carter took fourth place at 81-68–149, while Gina Gilchrist was fifth at 79-77–156. Donna Moose and Samuel Ann Byerly tied for sixth at 76-82–158. Jackie King carded 87-75–162.

New faces, Fox’s future highlight Panthers camp SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) – The familiar sights were missing on Wednesday morning as 80 mostly young guys reported for the start of Carolina Panthers training camp. There was no wondering which side door Julius Peppers might try to sneak through to avoid reporters outside the dormitory. The star defensive end is in Chicago now. Jake Delhomme didn’t walk up with his familiar smile and trash bag draped over his shoulder. The seven-year starting quarterback was cut, then signed with Cleveland. No sign of veterans Muhsin Muhammad, Brad Hoover, Damione Lewis, Maake Kemoeatu, Na’il Diggs, Chris Harris or Keydrick Vincent, either. All were former starters. All were then let go in the Panthers’ offseason youth movement. Just how young is Carolina? Steve Smith, at 31, is the oldest position player on the roster and one of only four players not born in the 1980s. “The vibe around here is unknown,” said Smith, out of his cast but still weeks away from returning from a broken arm. “Literally, half of them just pulled up.” The new leader looked different, too. Matt Moore, thrust into the starting quarterback job despite just eight career starts, showed up

with a thin beard. At least he’s old enough to grow one. “There’s a lot of wide eyes with the youth,” Moore said. After finishing 8-8 last season and under orders by owner Jerry Richardson to cut costs with labor unrest looming, the Panthers begin a season full of uncertainty that includes their coach. Only Jeff Fisher in Tennessee, Bill Belichick in New England and Andy Reid in Philadelphia have been with their teams longer than John Fox. But his ninth season in Carolina could be his last after he was denied a contract extension in the offseason. Fox enters the last year of his deal with the challenge of getting a team with 63 players who are 25 or younger ready to compete in the same division as the Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints. The biggest intrigue will be at QB and on the defensive line. After finishing strong last season, Moore was handed the starting job when Delhomme was released following his miserable season. Moore is 6-2 as a starter, but those games came over two seasons after Carolina was already effectively eliminated from playoff contention. His hold on the starting job is hardly secure. The Panthers snatched up Jimmy Clausen in the second round.

Orders for big-ticket goods drop WASHINGTON (AP) — Orders to U.S. factories for big-ticket manufactured goods fell in June as demand for commercial aircraft plummeted. But businesses increased spending on capital goods for a second straight month, a sign that manufacturing continues to help keep the economic recovery afloat. Demand for durable goods dropped 1 percent last month to a seasonally adjusted $190.5 billion, the Commerce Department said Wednesday. It was the second straight monthly decline and the largest drop since August 2009. Orders for commercial aircraft fell 25.6 percent in June, although seasonal adjustments kept



Comcast profit dips on Universal deal PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Comcast Corp. reported lower second-quarter earnings Wednesday partly because of costs related to its pending takeover of NBC Universal, yet it saw improvements in advertising and demand for pricier television services. The nation’s largest cable TV provider is still hoping to win regulatory approval and close by year’s end its deal to buy a controlling stake in the broadcaster from General Electric Co. Costs to Comcast so far include legal fees and interest payments on borrowing related to the pending transaction.

Oil falls below $77 after supply jump NEW YORK (AP) — Oil prices dropped below $77 a barrel on Wednesday after the government said U.S. crude supplies rose unexpectedly last week. Benchmark crude fell 80 cents to $76.70 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The contract lost $1.48 to settle at $77.50 on Tuesday.

ConocoPhillips earnings more than double NEW YORK (AP) — ConocoPhillips said Wednesday its secondquarter income more than doubled as oil prices increased and refining margins jumped. The Houston oil company also announced plans to sell its entire holdings in Russian oil company Lukoil by the end of next year.


the report from reflecting a strong month for Boeing. Without the volatile transportation sector, orders fell by 0.6 percent. Manufacturing has helped drive growth during the early stages of the recovery. A slowdown in orders could be a sign that the recovery is losing strength. Still, economists said the June report wasn’t as bad as the headline number. Business spending for machinery and equipment edged up 0.6 percent, following a 4.6 percent surge in May. And positive earnings reports could lead to further gains in net income, an encouraging sign for growth in the rest of the year. “Overall, we have no

doubt this data will play badly in the markets, but it isn’t actually that terrible,” said Paul Ashworth, a senior U.S. economist with Capital Economics. “The bottom line is that it shows business investment had a very strong second quarter and, although the recovery in manufacturing may be losing a little momentum, it is hardly collapsing.” June’s overall durable goods orders were 16.5 percent higher than the seasonally adjusted $176 billion in orders from a year ago, when the economic recovery had yet to take hold. But they were below the pre-recession peak of $229.5 billion in July 2007.

Sprint Nextel gains subscribers NEW YORK (AP) — Sprint Nextel Corp. said Wednesday that it gained subscribers in its latest quarter, the first such gain in three years, as it continued to improve customer service and retention. However, it continued to lose the most lucrative customers, those who sign two-year contracts, and posted a wider loss for its second quarter due to tax effects. Sprint shares rose 6 cents, or 1.5 percent, to $4.90 in morning trading. In pre-market trading, shares were up as much as 10 percent before investors fully digested the numbers. Sprint gained a net 111,000 subscribers in the April to June period, compared to a loss of 257,000 in the same quarter last year. It said it expects to keep adding wireless subscribers for the rest of the year,

and reduce the number of contract customers who leave. Sprint still lost 55,000 subscribers under its own brands — which include Virgin Mobile and Boost — in the latest quarter, but made up for that by adding 166,000 wholesale and affiliate subscribers, who buy access to the network through resellers. It lost 228,000 contract subscribers, a figure much improved from the 991,000 it lost in the same quarter last year. Sprint has been hemorrhaging subscribers nearly constantly since its 2005 acquisition of Nextel. That network, incompatible with Sprint’s, is valued for its walkie-talkie-like push-to-talk function, but is poorly suited to smart phones, and more than a million subscribers have been leaving every year.

CVS announces deal with Aetna NEW YORK (AP) — CVS Caremark Corp. said Wednesday it struck a large pharmacy benefit management services contract with health insurer Aetna Inc., but shares fell in premarket trading after the pharmacy chain reported weaker earnings and trimmed its profit forecast. CVS Caremark’s net income fell 7 percent in the second quarter because of contracts lost by Caremark. Citing the weak economy and greater costs, the company reduced its profit forecast for the year and said it expects slower rev-

enue growth from stores open at least one year. The company runs 7,109 stores nationwide, about 400 less than Walgreen Co. In premarket trading, CVS shares fell $1.58, or 5.2 percent, to $29.02. The stock finished at $30.60 Tuesday. Second-quarter net income fell to $821 million from $886 million. On a pershare basis, profit was unchanged at 60 cents as the company had fewer shares outstanding this quarter. CVS said it earned 65 cents per share if amortization costs and other one-time items are excluded.

Stocks drop on economic report NEW YORK (AP) — Investors cashed in some of their recent gains Wednesday after the Federal Reserve gave them more confirmation that the economic recovery is slowing. The Dow Jones industrial average fell almost 40 points after the Fed released its regional survey of the economy, a report known as the “beige book.” The Fed said economic growth has been steady during the summer in Cleveland and Kansas City, but has slowed in Atlanta and Chicago. The central bank described economic activity elsewhere as modest. The report had some sobering news about manufacturing, which had been one of the strongest parts of the economy. While manufacturing expanded in most of the Fed’s 12 regions, about half — New York, Cleveland, Kansas City, Chicago, Atlanta and Richmond — said manufacturing had “slowed” or “leveled off.” Investors weren’t surprised by the Fed report, but they also didn’t like hearing their own downbeat assessment of the economy confirmed by the central bank. The Dow fell 39.81, or 0.4 percent, to 10,497.88. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index fell 7.71, or 0.7 percent, to 1,106.13, while the Nasdaq composite index fell 23.69, or 1 percent.

NY town ready for close-up ahead of Clinton wedding




Boeing Commercial Airplanes CEO Jim Albaugh (left) and Boeing CEO Jim McNerney react as they pose with a Boeing 787 after it landed at the Farnborough International Airshow in England on July 18.

Boeing profit falls MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Boeing’s second-quarter profit fell 21 percent as airplane deliveries and defense revenue fell. Its $787 million profit was bigger than analysts expected, though revenue fell more than expected. Boeing said revenue will rise next year as it delivers its new 787 and 747-8. Boeing delivered 114 commercial aircraft during second quarter, down from 125 a year earlier. The recession was one factor. Another was problems with a seat manufacturer in Japan, which delayed some deliveries. Boeing shares fell $1.44, or 2.1 percent, to $67.18 in morning trading. The second-quarter profit was down from $998 million a year earlier.

Revenue fell 9.1 percent to $15.57 billion, from $17.15 billion a year earlier. The profit worked out to $1.06 per share, 5 cents more than expected by analysts surveyed by Thomson Reuters. However, Boeing’s revenue fell short of expectations for $16.13 billion. Commercial airplane revenue fell 12 percent to $7.4 billion, with operating profits down 16 percent to $683 million. Deliveries of its biggest jets fell, and Boeing had problems with a seat supplier. Defense revenue fell 8 percent to $7.98 billion, with profits down 19 percent to $711 million. The revenue drop-off was mostly because of its space unit. The company left its 2010 revenue and profit guidance unchanged, although

that was partly because it cut capital spending plans by $200 million. It said it still expects to deliver 460 to 465 commercial airplanes this year, including the first few 787s and 747-8s. Boeing said 2011 revenue should rise as it delivers those planes. It said its new planes for this year are sold out. And it booked $12.8 billion in future aircraft orders or commitments at the Farnborough International Airshow last week. “With our commercial markets recovering, and the priorities of our government customers gaining clarity, we remain well positioned for growth in 2011 and beyond,” Chairman and CEO Jim McNerney said in a prepared statement.

RHINEBECK, N.Y. (AP) – Never mind that the details about Chelsea Clinton’s wedding are being guarded like state secrets. The postcard-pretty town of Rhinebeck is ready for its close-up. The former first daughter and her parents have not even confirmed that her wedding is being held in Rhinebeck. Still, signs congratulatClinton ing her hang in shop windows, residents are talking to TV crews and officials are bracing for crowds. Clinton, 30, will wed investment banker Marc Mezvinsky on Saturday evening, and this little Hudson Valley town of upscale boutiques and pricey homes north of New York City is expecting an influx of A-List guests, reporters and rubber-neckers. “I think this will put us on the map in an entirely different way,” said Ira Gutner, owner of Samuel’s coffee shop,


Astor Courts is seen on the Hudson River near the Kingston-Rhinecliff Bridge in Rhinebeck, N.Y. which featured a sign in the window congratulating the Methodist bride and Jewish groom with “Mazel Tov, Chelsea and Marc.” “People will say, ‘Oh, let’s go to Rhinebeck, Chelsea Clinton got married there.’ ... We’ll

forever be known for this,” he said. It’s all but certain the couple will wed at Astor Courts, a secluded estate along the Hudson River built as a Beaux Arts style playground for John Jacob Astor IV more than a century ago.



CBS show aims to be ‘The Talk’ of the town BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) – Sara Gilbert, producer and co-host of the new CBS daytime show “The Talk,” said she will share her life as a lesbian partner and mom on air when it seems right. But Leah Remini, among the six cohosts, said she has no plans to make her religion, Scientology, part of the show. “Not at all,” Remini told a session of the Television Critics Association,

adding, “I love to make people laugh, entertain them. That other thing is something that is not even part of my discussion.” Gilbert, who said she developed the idea to Gilbert create a meeting ground for women and mothers, has two children with her partner, Allison Adler.
