Parents and community residents packed the open house meeting room. “The visits also educated us about the community,” said Faison, a former assistant principal at Ragsdale High School. The Guilford County Board of Education extended Oak Hill’s school day by 45 minutes and academic year by 10 days to improve performance.

The change is part of a three-year school reform plan financed by a $6 million federal grant. The school had started as early as July under a former year-round calendar, but attendance suffered. “We will need those 10 days for instruction,” Faison said. The district’s goal is to raise the Adequate Yearly Progress score to 50 percent by the 2012-13 school year, partly by offering a longer school day and year. “We want to make sure all students (test scores) grow at least one year,” Faison said. “We need to do more.” Overall, the grant money will provide addi-

tional funds to give more support for teachers, students and parents. It will cost $325,000 a year from grant funds to pay staff for 11 months. About half of the annual $2 million grant revenue will go to staff bonuses at $424,000 and supplies and materials at $600,000. “We will do the training so that all of us will be on the same page,” Faison said. An estimated $215,000 in grant funds will go into a parent involvement program for supplies and contracted services. | 888-3626

Thomasville mulls plan for park upgrades BY DARRICK IGNASIAK ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

127th year No. 222

HIGH POINT – The N.C. State Highway Patrol issued its final report Monday on a fatal accident involving a state trooper in May. Sandra Allmond’s failure to yield the right of way to Trooper J.D. Goodnight’s oncoming Dodge Charger on Business Interstate 85 was the “causative factor” in the crash that killed Allmond and 11-year-old Taylor Strange on May 23, the report stated. Goodnight was pursuing a suspected speeder on the highway just east of High Point with his blue emergency lights on when Allmond attempted to turn left onto River Road into the path of the trooper, whose car slammed into Allmond’s Honda at an estimated 95 mph. “No physical evidence or witness testimony has been obtained that serves to explain why Mrs. Allmond did not yield at the green light governing I-85 Business to the oncoming patrol vehicle displaying flashing blue lights,” the report stated. Goodnight had clocked a blue vehicle traveling 80 mph and accelerated to pursue it, the report stated. One witness has disputed this account, but the report includes statements from another witness who reported seeing a small blue vehicle that fit the description of the one Goodnight was pursuing. The vehicle apparently was never apprehended. The traffic signal lights were green as the trooper approached the intersection. Goodnight saw a maroon-colored vehicle in the northbound left turn lane and thought the car was yielding to the right of way of his vehicle, the report stated. The vehicles collided in the intersection, leaving Allmond, 55, of Thomasville, and Strange, of Jamestown, dead. Goodnight, who sustained minor injuries in the accident, has since returned to duty. The speed at which Goodnight was traveling also contributed to the severity of the crash, the report stated.

has requested that the governing body endorse the Partners for Playgrounds project. The parks and recreation committee is requesting that the City Council support the partnership to pursue the goal of $350,000, with the city’s portion of $50,000 toward the project. “This project, with the help of several of our community-minded partners, can not only solve a need in our parks, but do so in a

most timely fashion,” the committee said in a statement. “In short, the project would seek financial partners to install new and updated playground equipment in seven of our parks. Council support and approval of the project would include a city match of $50,000 along with the approval of possible naming rights to certain designated play areas within the park.” Craver said some of the play-


grounds in Thomasville are “extremely antiquated” and “woefully” in need of replacement. The committee said Doak Park, Carver Park, the Central Recreation Center, Myers Park/Kings Row Park, Memorial Park and Turner Street Park all have needs. “We have in this community a lot of older playground equipment,” said Councilman Scott

A copperhead snake owned by Jake Martin of Eastover shows its fangs as it bites down on a metal bar. The likelihood of getting bitten by a snake is higher in North Carolina than the rest of the nation, and the chances will likely keep growing.

NC residents more likely to be bitten by snakes RALEIGH (AP) – Matt Jenkins thought he had run over a stick in the road until it struck out and bit his bare foot. The marathon runner was on a lonely road near Franklin, not far from the Tennessee state line, less than three days from completing a 760-mile barefoot run across North Carolina to raise money for the Western Youth Network. That journey’s finish is now about two weeks off, as Jenkins recovers from what turned out to be a bite from a copperhead. “It felt like a yellowjacket sting on my foot at first,” he said after being treated at a nearby hospital. “I didn’t realize it was a snake bite until it started swelling up.” Jenkins’ encounter is increas-

ingly familiar. One researcher estimates there are 19 snakebites per 100,000 people in North Carolina, compared with a national average

Perdue declines to sign last bill left on desk

“Snakes have no desire to come across your path, but it happens more and more with more people and more suburbs,” said Dr. Ben German, an emergency department physician at WakeMed Hospital in Raleigh who researches snakes. Although being on the business end of a snake’s fangs is terrifying, it’s not the instantly-fatal experience familiar from Hollywood films. Fewer than a dozen people die from snake bites every year, well below the number killed annually by lightning strikes. And bites from copperheads, the most frequently encountered venomous snake in North Carolina, are almost never fatal.

Man shot to death in barber shop; arrest made RALEIGH (AP) – Police have arrested a suspect in the death of a man who was gunned down at a downtown barber shop in North Carolina’s capital city.

Multiple media outlets report a man ran into the barber shop, shot Hamer as he was in a barber’s chair and ran out. One week ago, a downtown Raleigh clothing store owner was stabbed during a robbery. A suspect was arrested in that case too.

RALEIGH (AP) – Gov. Beverly Perdue will let the final bill left on her desk from this year’s General Assembly session become law without her signature because she’s concerned it tries to weaken her constitutional budget authority, a spokeswoman said Monday. Perdue, in completing action on 109 bills, believes the university energy savings measure is a good idea, according to her spokeswoman, Chrissy Pearson. But the governor questions one sentence in the bill she argues usurps her power to manage the state budget. Instead of vetoing a bill that had overwhelming support in both the House

and Senate, Perdue will ask legislative leaders in a letter this week to delete Perdue the contested language when they return to work in January, Pearson said. The governor had until midnight Monday to act on the bills. “She believes it limits the governor in the performance of her constitutional duties,” Pearson said. “She expresses some hope in the long (2011) session that that will be corrected.” The bill gives University of North Carolina campuses incentives to meet energy savings requirements.

her changing out of the clown suit in her car. A bomb squad robot checked out items found in the car, including the clown suit and a multicolored wig. No explosives were found. No one in the bank was injured.

CHARLOTTE (AP) – Before he shipped out for a fourth tour of Afghanistan, Army Maj. Jeff Leopold spent hundreds of dollars on toothpaste, socks, sheets, shampoo, shower sandals, deodorant, lotions and T-shirts – anything he’d need for a year’s deployment. With them, he packed everything into a Milvan, a giant militaryowned shipping box, that also held the belongings of 70 of his comrades in the Fort Bragg-based 519th Military Intelligence Battalion. The Milvan was shipped three months ago, so it would be waiting for the troops. Yet two weeks ago, when they went to get their stuff at Bagram Air Base, the box had been cleaned out. Everything had been stolen. Since then, people in Fort Bragg and Charlotte have been rallying to resupply the stolen items. On Monday, about 1,500 pounds of items are being flown to Bagram – the shipment paid for by Mercedes Benz of South Charlotte.

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


America has changed, but not for the better Yes America, you’ve changed ... for the better? I think not. We have taken or have tried to take God’s name out of our government, schools, public gatherings, even holidays designated to honor Christian beliefs this country was founded upon. Our government no longer represents “the people.” Bailouts and health care reform demonstrated that. Our court system is in disarray and virtually nonfunctional. Schools are a failure as we graduate a vast number of completely unprepared young people for today’s job market. Our economy continues to decline and unemployment remains unacceptable. The national debt can’t be comprehended by most of us. Our borders are a joke. Immigration is out of control. Did I miss anything? How’s that change working out for you? I’m not talking politics here, I’m talking “way of life.” Yes, America changed; just not for the better. Maybe it’s time we return

America is an Englishspeaking country; make it official.



to the core beliefs that made America what America once was – and I believe can be once again. America was founded upon Christian beliefs. Those offended have the right to leave. Put God back in our lives and take much of the government out! America is an English-speaking country; make it official. One national language has contributed to our strength. Secure our borders; allow orderly legal immigration. Put God, country, authority, discipline and rewards for success back in the schools. Demand fair trade policies. America will no longer support or sustain the world at our expense. Elect leaders based on experience, honor and moral integrity, not on influence from special interest groups. The morning the World Trade Center towers collapsed as a result of a cowardly act of war, there was no black, white, Hispanic, liberal or conservative. We were all Americans, and we looked to God and raised our flag over the rubble. ... Look at us now. MIKE HANCOCK Trinity

Leaders must tell the truth about our problems Our leaders think we are stupid. We know the country is in a mess, yet they keep informing us that everything is fine. In England, after the German blitzkrieg, the people were depressed. Then a great man came on – Sir Winston Churchill – and told them the truth, that they were in a mess and they could possibly be invaded. The attitude of the people changed to one of determination to save their country, which they did. We need someone who is honest and will tell us what a mess we are in. Not to continue lying to us. MAUREEN HUGHES Lexington

In politics, goal should be to do what’s best for country A recent contributor to Your View letters to the editor stated the “name of the game in politics is to defeat the opposition.” It is normal and understand-

able that persons have different philosophies and different approaches to governance, and that is probably a good thing. Furthermore, it is appropriate for persons to advocate for their position. But to say the goal of politics should be to defeat the opposition is, in my opinion, exactly what is wrong about politics in America – and probably in almost every other place. Blindly following the party line for the sole purpose of defeating the opposing party is not only counterproductive; it is unpatriotic. The goal of politics should be to do what is best for the country. Politics is not a sport. BOB RULE High Point

ith all the news and information outlets available today, it’s unlikely the federal government needs to spend taxpayer money advertising any legislation that’s passed, especially something so talked about as the new health care plan. The Andy Griffith television ad touting the Obama administration’s health care plan seems like an attempt at using a well-known and popular figure to influence political opinion on a highly controversial subject. And the initial $700,000 cost of running the ad is troublesome, too.

ake no mistake: Revonda Johnson will be missed – by students, faculty and staff, parents and Guilford County Schools! As Johnson, principal at High Point Central High School since 2005, heads for a position as instructional improvement officer for Peoria (Ill.) Public Schools, “Parents have already started sending out e-mails saying they want the right person who will continue the programs they have,” to replace her, according to J. Carlvena Foster, District 1 representative on the Guilford County Board of Education. While guiding Central for the last five years, Johnson brought the school plenty of recognition – The Hubert B. Humphrey Jr. award, used for professional development in support of a new co-teaching system that will allow the school to serve exceptional children and special student populations more effectively; the 2007 “Best in Class” Secondary Principal of the Year for leading Central to higher academic achievements, meeting both state and federal standards; and the 2009 Humanitarian of the Year award by the city of High Point for her work for social justice and human rights. Johnson has set the bar high at Central, and her successor should have the same passion for constant improvement, a similar hands-on approach and outstanding leadership skills. We wish Revonda Johnson the best in her new pursuit.

A healthy dose of public skepticism is a good thing


or years, environmental activists have pushed state and federal officials to enact costly, far-reaching policies to combat global warming. They’ve run ad campaigns and endorsed politicians. They’ve attacked the reputation of scientists who don’t agree with their alarmism about climate change. They’ve produced books, websites, videos, even Hollywood movies to push their agenda. And they’ve failed. In Washington, Senate Democrats have just decided not to move a “cap and trade” bill designed to change the structure of energy production in the United States by raising the price of fossil fuels. In Raleigh, legislative Democrats created a commission back in 2005 to propose state laws and policies to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions from North Carolina households and businesses. The commission has just disbanded without recommending any major initiatives. Why have the alarmists’ efforts achieved so little? They offer a multitude of handy explanations, most of them based on crackpot conspiracy theories involving oil companies, real-estate interests, the Religious Right, and water-breathing space aliens set on melting the polar icecap as a prelude to colonizing the Earth’s oceans. OK, so I made that last part up, but it’s not much of an exaggeration of the absurdity of their allegations. There’s no need for elaborate explanation. A straightforward one will do. Voters are properly skeptical about any energy policy promising to make their lives better by raising the cost of driving their cars, heating their homes, buying their groceries and operating their businesses. No amount of environmental propaganda has been able to replace their skepticism with credulousness. In the midst of a painful recession, with North Carolina’s jobless rate remaining in

double digits for more than two years now, the idea of using government regulations or taxes to raise the cost of energy has little support. Not only would such policies impose additional hardships on households, but they would also OPINION make North Carolina less competitive for new or expanding John industry – while accomplishing Hood precisely nothing even if the ■■■ goal of reducing greenhousegas emissions was a reasonable one, since North Carolina’s share of global emissions is negligible. The voters have shown themselves to have more common sense than the alarmists anticipated. Offered pie-in-the-sky forecasts of green-job creation and long-term savings from expensive alternative-fuel subsidies, voters have come to doubt them. Treated to copious news coverage of the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, voters have concluded that stringent safety requirements need to be enacted and enforced – not that American oil exploration is a bad idea. And subjected to years of attempted indoctrination about the risks of catastrophic global warming, voters have concluded that scientists should continue to research the issue and study promising new technologies – not that Congress or state legislatures should immediately pass laws wreaking havoc on an already weakened economy and mandating fundamental changes in the way we live, work, shop and travel. The public’s priorities are clear at the moment: address the serious fiscal and economic problems facing North Carolina and the nation. Climate-change legislation would worsen them. So it’s going nowhere. JOHN HOOD is president of the John Locke Foundation and publisher of

BATTLE OF THE BULGE: Study: Fat belly can be deadly for older adults. 6B

Managing Editor: Sherrie Dockery (336) 888-3539


Charity plans to stay in Afghanistan despite murders KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) – A Christian charity said Monday it had no plans to leave Afghanistan despite the brutal murders last week of 10 members of its medical aid team, six of them Americans. Police were holding the lone Afghan survivor for question-

ing, insisting he is not a suspect although authorities have lingering questions about his account of the horrific massacre in northern Afghanistan. The attack, far from the main theaters of the war in the east and south, underscored the growing insecurity in the region.

It was also the biggest assault on foreign Christians since the 2007 kidnapping of 23 South Korean missionaries by the Taliban in Ghazni province. Two male hostages were slain before the South Korean government negotiated their release the following month.

The survivor of last week’s attack, a driver named Saifullah who had worked for the humanitarian group for four years, was flown to Kabul on Sunday from Badakhshan province. Also taken to the capital were the bodies of the six Americans, two Afghans, a Briton and a Ger-

Hezbollah accuses Israel of assassination BEIRUT – The leader of Lebanon’s Hezbollah militants presented aerial reconnaissance footage Monday that he said implicates Israel in the 2005 assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri.

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) – North Korea fired about 110 rounds of artillery Monday near its disputed sea border with South Korea, the South’s military said, amid high tension over the deadly sinking of a South Korean warship blamed on North Korea. The firing came shortly after South Korea ended five-day naval drills off the west coast that the North called a rehearsal for an invasion, vowing to retaliate. All the artillery shells harmlessly landed into the North’s waters and caused no damage to

US military judge seals sentence for Gitmo inmate GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE, Cuba (AP) – A U.S. military judge on Monday ordered that a plea agreement capping the sentence of an Osama bin Laden aide be sealed, shrouding in secrecy the first Guantanamo conviction under President Barack Obama. The judge, Air Force Lt. Col. Nancy Paul, said the deal limiting how much more time detainee Ibrahim Ahmed Mahmoud al-Qosi spends in confinement will not be revealed until after his release. She said that condition of the plea bargain was requested by

the government and agreed to by the detainee’s lawyers. The sealing of the sentence is a first for the military commissions system, which the Obama administration has pledged to make more transparent. A spokesman for prosecutors, Navy Capt. David Iglesias, said he could not comment on the reasons for the secrecy. But he said it was consistent with federal courts’ handling of matters involving national security and claimed it was also in al-Qosi’s best interest. “We don’t want to create a disincentive for a detainee to plead guilty,” he said.

Cheney out of hospital a month after surgery WASHINGTON – Former Vice President Dick Cheney was released from a suburban Washington hospital on Monday following surgery Cheney last month to install a pump that helps his failing heart work.

Cheney, 69, has had five heart attacks since he was 37 and suffers from congestive heart failure.

But it’s not so simple when Mom is the first lady of the United States. And the trip is to a luxury resort on Spain’s Costa del Sol. During tough economic times at home. Michelle Obama’s five-day trip to the south of Spain with daughter Sasha touched off a minifirestorm stoked by questions about the wisdom of such a glamorous trip and over-the-top speculation about who was footing the bill and how many friends were along for the ride.

Gates: Belt-tightening will cut military jobs WASHINGTON – Defense Secretary Robert Gates said Monday tough economic times require that he shutter a major command that employs some 5,000 people around Norfolk, Va., and begin to eliminate other jobs throughout the military. The announcement was the first major step by Gates to find $100 billion in savings in the next five years. Gates says that money is needed elsewhere within the Defense Department to repair a force ravaged by years of war and to prepare troops for the next fight.

NASA aims for more space station repairs CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. – NASA scrambled Monday to put together a new plan of attack to get the International Space Station back to full cooling, following this past weekend’s unsuccessful repair effort.

Until the pump is replaced, the space station has to limp along on only half its cooling capability. The system isn’t for the astronauts’ comfort, but rather keeps electronic equipment from overheating. ENTERPRISE NEWS SERVICE REPORTS

Gulf relief well down to tricky 100 feet NEW ORLEANS (AP) – The relief well being drilled to ensure crude never again spills into the ocean from BP’s paralyzed well in the Gulf of Mexico has been dubbed the ultimate solution to the drama that’s unfolded over the past three months. It’s the final, suspenseful act as one man guides a drill more than two miles beneath the sea floor and three miles from the surface, trying to hit a target less than half

the size of a dartboard. The drill is about as wide as a grapefruit, and the target now lies less than 100 feet away. If John Wright misses, BP engineers will pull the drill bit up, pour concrete in the off-track hole and then try again. Wright is 40-for40, though, having helped capped wells across the world in four decades of work. And he seemed confident in a June video put out by BP that he could make it 41-for-41.

“Out of 40 relief wells that I’ve drilled, we’ve never missed yet,� Wright said. “I’ve got high confidence we will take care of this problem as soon as we can get there.� Work began during the weekend to finish drilling the well, and company and government officials say they could hit their target as early as Friday. If it hits, engineers will perform a “bottom kill� by pouring in mud and cement to permanently seal the blown-out well.

WASHINGTON (AP) – Top White House officials told BP executives Monday to move quickly on paying state and local government claims in the Gulf and stay committed to long-term recovery from the oil spill there. President Barack Obama celebrated progress in stopping the runaway well, saying that “the battle to stop the oil from flowing into the Gulf is just about over.� “Our work goes on, though,� Obama said during an appearance with the Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints. “I made a commitment to the people of the Gulf Coast that I would stand by them not just until the well was closed but until they recovered from the damage that’s been done. And that’s a commitment my administration is going to keep.�

GUILFORD COUNTY – If you think you bought too many school supplies during the taxfree weekend or if you want to recycle some items, there is a warehouse willing to take the goods. Guilford County Schools partnered with Guilford Education Alliance and Welfare Reform Liaison Project to sponsor the Teacher Supply Warehouse on Yanceyville Street in Greensboro. The large warehouse also offers storage for teachers who do not have enough space at school. Educators register for a shopping day and then they can pick up supplies for their classrooms for free. Last year, donors contributed more than $300,000 in school supplies, ranging from arts and craft supplies to wallpaper books, according to the Alliance. A recent survey sponsored by OfficeMax showed that teachers spend an average of $623 each year on classroom supplies – basics like paper, pencils, crayons and notebooks. With more than 50 percent of GCS students qualifying for free or reduced lunch, many parents simply cannot afford to send their children to school with all the necessary items needed for the classroom. “My first visit to the Supply Warehouse was so nice. I got supplies for my class that we really needed to enhance our classroom – books for the children, math and writing journals, crayons and pencils, magic markers and plastic bags for items to be sent home for the children to use and bring back to school,” Thay Evans of Fairview Elementary School said in remarks quoted on a district website. Donors Choose allows donors the flexibility to support their favorite school or teacher in the Guilford County School system.


Donations: To donate to the Teacher Supply Warehouse, call 370-8355 or 841-4332. Adopt-a-Classroom Donations are accepted from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Call ahead.

Kathryn “Cookie” Billings will retire Oct. 1 after 24 years as town manager for Jamestown.

Longtime Jamestown manager will retire this fall BY PAUL B. JOHNSON ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

JAMESTOWN – Town Manager Kathryn “Cookie” Billings will retire from the staff of the municipality where she’s worked for 24 years, but that doesn’t mean she’ll depart from her service to Jamestown. Instead, Billings said her service will take a new path after she retires this fall as the top administrator for the community sandwiched between High Point and Greensboro. Billings said she will remain active in Jamestown through her volunteer involvement in organizations such as Rotary and the Girl Scouts. “I’ve already gotten several calls from friends who are on different boards asking me to do some things,” said Billings, who is retiring after a 30-year overall career in local government. Billings recently said she’ll retire as town manager effec-

tive Oct. 1. She has worked for Jamestown in different capacities for 24 years, 21 of those years consecutively. Billings has served as town manager for the past four years. She said she’s remained with

‘For me, the appeal has been the people that I work with and the community.’ ‘Cookie’ Billings Jamestown town manager the Jamestown government because of the small-town atmosphere of the community, which has 3,200 residents, and the friendships she’s made during her career. “For me, the appeal has been the people that I work with and the community. It’s fun to be

in a small town – if you come to some of the events we have here, everybody knows everybody,” said Billings, who grew up in Greensboro. Jamestown Mayor Keith Volz praised Billings for her years of work. “She’s done a great job in guiding us financially,” the mayor said. Volz said Assistant Town Manager Chuck Smith probably will take on the role of interim town manager after Billings departs. Smith said Monday that he would be comfortable as interim town manager. When asked whether he’d be interested in the town manager job permanently, Smith said, “I honestly have not thought beyond my role as public services director and assistant town manager. It would be premature to talk about it.” | 888-3528

Accused gunman makes first court appearance BY PAT KIMBROUGH ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – The victim of a weekend shooting in High Point’s Southside neighborhood sustained eight gunshot wounds, authorities said Monday. Qumain Terez Pratt, of Forrest Street, was listed in good condition at High Point Regional Hospital, two days after he was shot multiple times and found by police officers in the 1400 block of Cloverdale Street.

“He underwent surgery and will probably be (hospitalized) a few weeks,” High Point Police Detective Chris Weisner said during a court appearance for Pratt’s alleged attacker. Shannon Clint Thornton, 28, of Oneka Avenue, remained in the Guilford County Jail in High Point Monday under a $100,000 bond on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury.

Guilford County District Court Judge Betty Brown kept the bond at that amount after Weisner and Assistant District Attorney Seth Banks said they weren’t opposed to his bond remaining at the level at which it was set by a magistrate following his arrest on Saturday afternoon. Police said previously they believed the shooting, which occurred about 3:30 a.m. Saturday, resulted from an ongoing

dispute between Pratt and Thornton. Weisner said the shooting took place at the intersection of Coltrane Avenue and Cloverdale Street. The scene is just off S. Main Street in the Southside neighborhood, where violent crime has fallen since police launched a street-level drug initiative there a few years ago that focused on shutting down open-air drug markets and associated crime.


Weisner said neither the suspect nor the victim is from Southside. Court officials said Thornton has one prior conviction on his criminal record – for simple possession of a controlled substance in 2009. Pretrial Services officials said multiple counts of assault with a deadly weapon charges against him were dismissed in 2006. | 888-3531

being “too� patient? – Reality Check In Kansas Dear Reality: ADVICE Are you absolutely Dear certain Abby that Ray is ■■■ divorced? It seems strange to me that after three years you still haven’t met his children. Or does he plan to have you move in and “surprise� them? That would be a big mistake. If my suspicions are wrong and Ray is on the up and up, tell him you need him to set a definite timeline. You have been patient long enough. Dear Abby: My cousin “Cassidy� met a man I’ll call “Lenny� online and they started dating. When I met him a few months later, I recognized him as the man who had sexually assaulted two women I knew in college. He was convicted of these crimes, did time in jail and is a registered sex offender. I was horrified and unsure about how to tell Cassidy. It turns out Lenny told her before they started dating, but she chose to date him anyway. They were married at the courthouse two years ago, a few weeks before my own wedding. I did not invite Lenny, and my cousin

Couple keep their dating hidden from kids ear Abby: I have been romantically involved with my best friend, “Ray,� for three years. We dated for a couple of years 14 years ago. He got a girl pregnant right before we started dating, and they ended up getting married and having four more children. We remained friends and began seeing each other after they divorced three years ago. Ray says he has always been in love with me and should have married me. We’re very close and spend as much time together as we can. For the past year I have been asking when I’ll meet his children. He keeps saying I need to be patient and when the time is right I can. We live in different cities. Ray is a great dad – very involved in his children’s lives. He has them during the week, and on weekends, coaches basketball for his son, and takes them to their different activities. etc. I understand they are his first priority. I just wish he’d include me in that part of his life. Ray says he wants to marry me. We discuss it often and plan on living together in the near future. I feel he doesn’t want me to be a part of his life that involves the children. They range in age from 13 to 3 1/2. They know I exist because he has my picture by his bed, but he says they don’t ask about me. Am I

posted a nasty message online about it. When we are at family functions, I ignore him as much as I possibly can. Although their marriage is not a good one, Cassidy is planning a formal wedding in a few months. I am torn. I don’t support this, and besides, they are already married. If I don’t attend, I’m afraid it will cause a big rift in my family. Should I suck it up and put myself in a situation that makes me sick to my stomach? Or should I stay away with the possibility of upsetting those I care about? – Reluctant Relative in The Midwest Dear Reluctant Relative: Your cousin already knows how you feel about her husband because you tried to warn her. Unless you’re as good an actress as Meryl Streep, your family cannot have missed the fact that you avoid him as often as possible. If the idea of attending the upcoming performance gives you an upset stomach, do everyone a favor and stay away. And if anyone gives you heat, be upfront about the fact you think she’s making a mistake and would feel like a hypocrite if you went.

Exercise and diet smartly BY NANCY SIMPSON


he person who has painstakingly strived for weight loss during the years has probably heard of many methods. Cabbage soup and detoxification diets are just a couple examples of the countless fad diets concocted and promising quick weight loss for a trimmer you. If you have just passed the six-month evaluation of your New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resolution to lose weight and want to get back on track to meet your goal, here are some tips for choosing a good weight loss program. A promise of rapid weight loss is not a good sign of a healthier plan. Fast weight loss increases the risk of losing water, lean muscle and bone. Weight loss of a half to two pounds per week is a good rate. Steer away from diets that restrict certain foods. Each food group has important vitamins and minerals often unique to that group. There should be some variety of food choices. There is no one-sizefits-all weight-loss plan. A good plan will fit into your lifestyle and food budget. If it requires cooking but you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cook, that plan may not work. If you have to buy special foods and you have a tight budget, it may not be realistic. If you need to eat six meals per day but canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t eat snacks at work, try another program. Any program that says there is no need to exercise isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the best choice. If you want to maintain a healthy weight, build muscle and lose fat, the best path is a combination of eating healthier and being more active. All diets promote different ways of eating fewer calories. Some are more restrictive; some have better balance, and some are easier to follow. One important key to weight loss is eating fewer calories than you are burning through activity and exercise. Most diets should not go below 1,500 calories for men and 1,200 calories for women per day. For more help with weight loss, contact The Fitness Center at High Point Regional Health System. It offers one-on-one nutrition counseling, or you can sign up for the weight loss program called, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Plan.â&#x20AC;? An informational session is scheduled for 6 p.m. Sept. 14.

Don’t ignore stroke signs


ear Dr. Donohue: I’ve just hung up the phone after talking to my doctor. He has me scared out of my wits. This morning while reading the newspaper, I couldn’t hold it up. My right arm became weak. In about five minutes, everything returned to normal. I thought I had better call the doctor to see if this was serious. The doctor thinks I had a ministroke and wants me to have someone take me to the hospital ASAP. I told him I was fine. He said that doesn’t matter. I thought I would drop you a line for your opinion. I trust your judgment. What should I do? – T.R.



I hope you listened to your doctor. You should do exactly what he told you. You have an emergency on your hands. You most likely had a TIA – a transient ischemic attack – a ministroke. Investigation should be taking place as soon as possible – immediately. A part of your brain lost its blood supply for a short time. Even a brief occurrence like the one you describe can cause permanent brain damage. Worse, it is often the foreboding of a complete stroke. You have to be checked for a blockage in one of your carotid arteries, the large neck arteries that deliver blood to the brain. You have to be examined for a clot in other body locations like the heart. Pieces of














those clots can break loose and be carried to a brain artery, where they stop HEALTH the flow of blood perDr. Paul manently. Donohue Atrial fi■■■ brillation, a common heartbeat disturbance, is often responsible for such clots. Numbness, weakness or both of a hand, arm, leg, side of the face or tongue can be a sign of a TIA. Trouble expressing oneself is another sign. So are disturbances of vision. None lasts long, but they are quite significant and serious warnings. I don’t have important background information on you. I am counting on your good sense to get you to the hospital quickly. Dear Dr. Donohue: Does chocolate cause kidney stones? I was told it does. Lately everything I read or hear about chocolate puts it on a par with health foods. Is the stone link true? – B.F. The most common kind of kidney stone is calcium oxalate. Sources of oxalate include nuts, beets, spinach, tea and chocolate. Doctors might tell their patients who had this kind of stone to go easy with oxalate foods. They don’t have to abstain completely from

them, but they might have to cut back a bit. In the past, people with calcium oxalate stones were put on a calcium-restricted diet. Dietary calcium has little to nothing to do with contributing to these stones. Doctors don’t restrict calcium now. None of this applies to you. It applies only to those who have had a calcium oxalate stone. Dear Dr. Donohue: There’s a swelling behind my left elbow. It’s soft and doesn’t hurt. People ask me what it is. I don’t know. What is it? – K.D. This is a guess. A doctor has to see it to make the right diagnosis. I’m reasonably sure it’s bursitis – olecranon bursitis. Bursas are round, flat disks about the size of a nickel that lie between tendons and bones. They reduce friction when tendons move across bones. Overuse is one of the reasons bursa fill with fluid. A doctor can remove the fluid with a needle and syringe and then wrap an elastic bandage around the elbow to prevent the fluid from reforming. DR. DONOHUE regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible. Readers may write him or request an order form of available health newsletters at P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475

Passengers line up to get tickets and schedules at High Point Station.

Taking the train Passengers cite variety of reasons for choosing to ride the rails BY DIANNA BELL ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER


IGH POINT – Walking into the High Point Amtrak Station is like stepping into the late 19th century. The station, at 100 W. High Ave., has the feel of a station straight from the late 1800s. This is in large part due to the renovations of the station in 2002 and 2003 to restore the building to its original beauty. Passengers are pulled from this time warp when they stand before an electronic kiosk. The machine offers customers an easy way to buy tickets. Passen-

’Sometimes, I’ll just ride the train for a day for the fun of it.’ Dave Williams Train enthusiast gers also can call (800) USA-RAIL or go online to to buy a ticket. They have the option of buying a ticket on the train for a slightly higher price. This ease and convenience has led to an increase in individuals opting for a smooth train ride as opposed to what they deem as the hassle of hopping on a plane or fueling up their cars as their means for travel. Eight passenger trains pass through the tracks at High Point Station daily, heading north as far as New York, and south to Charlotte. From Charlotte to Raleigh, the train moves at a speed of about 80 mph, according to train enthusiast Dave Williams. “Sometimes, I’ll just ride the train for a day for the fun of it,” Williams said. Williams is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to the train system, and has an answer for

almost every locomotive-related question thrown his way. He spouted off the complete train schedule and names of the trains that passed below the High Point station each day. At 8:48 a.m. on a recent sunny Thursday, travelers boarded Train 80, the Carolinian, on its way to destinations north. Suzanne Greer, who boarded on her way to Rocky Mount, noted this was her first time on a train since childhood. “I don’t feel like driving and going through the traffic,” said Greer, who is from Southport. Evelon Terry of Winston-Salem was dropping off a passenger and said trains are the only way she travels. “I love the train,” Terry said. “I only fly if I have to.” Having to be alert at all times while driving, keeping your hands at the 10 and 2 positions on the wheel and the exhaustion of putting up with bumper-to-bumper traffic are some reasons drivers have converted to the train. Others note that having to go two hours early to the airport and making it through security with the correct measurements of liquids are nuisances they try to avoid. When boarding the train, a conductor asks passengers where they are headed. This determines which car they are directed toward. An attendant checks the weight of the carry-ons, which cannot exceed 50 pounds. Passengers file on, find a seat and wait for an attendant to check their tickets. Simple. On northbound trains, dining cars can be found with a wide range of edibles from the basic to the more satisfying. On the Carolinian, breakfast was being served, with options ranging from coffee to egg sandwiches. Alcoholic beverages also are an option aboard the northbound. Lynn Hoover, who was traveling from South Carolina to Washington, D.C., was having an early morning toddy with his newfound



Suzanne Greer boards the Carolinian, which is headed north out of High Point.

New York-bound Elizabeth Franklin holds her dog, Benson Zander. friend, Brian Williams, who was on his way home to Baltimore. “Taking the train is a comfortable and relaxing way to travel,” Williams said. “You also get to meet new people.” Taking a train lets passengers start celebrating their vacations early or provides them with a mood-relaxer if they are so inclined, which is extremely illegal in a car. The Amtrak system also is pet friendly. Elizabeth Franklin of Winston-Salem boarded the train in Burlington and was heading to New York. She had her fluffy white buddy by the name of Benson Zander along for the ride. “This is my second time taking


him on the train,” Franklin said. “It’s easier and there’s no hassle.” Franklin had opted for the roomier, yet slightly more expensive business ticket, which comes with a free beverage. Sarah Tauber, Winston-Salem resident who also was headed to New York, is a frequent rider. She also was aboard the business car and provided the Amtrak system with more compliments. “Riding the train is comfortable and an easy way to get to where you’re going,” Tauber said.

NOT BEST I like supportive partners, but South’s play wasn’t best. South would fail if trumps broke 4-1. After South ruffs the second club, he should take the A-K of trumps. When trumps break 3-2, South proceeds with his dummy reversal. If trumps broke 4-1, South would start the hearts. If East held four or more hearts, South could ruff his fourth heart in dummy.




“My partner has convinced me that for every action, there is an equal and opposite criticism,” a club player grumbled. “He finds fault with everything I do.” My friend was declarer at today’s slam. “I ruffed the second club and counted 11 tricks,” he told me. “I couldn’t expect a 3-3 heart break, so I decided on a dummy reversal. I led a heart to the ace, ruffed a club, led a diamond to the king and ruffed a club. I cashed the ace of trumps, overtook my queen, drew the last trump and claimed. That wasn’t enough to please my partner. He acted like a pig at a pastry cart as usual: He said I’d misplayed.”




DAILY QUESTION You hold: S 7 2 H 5 D 6 4 3 C A K Q J 8 5 2. You are the dealer with neither side vulnerable. What do you say? ANSWER: Most experts would avoid a preempt. Partner could not visualize a solid suit and might avoid a good contract of 3NT. A few experts would pass and act later. Most experts would open one club although they would prefer the long suit were a major. After all, the hand contains winners, two defensive tricks and an easy rebid. North dealer N-S vulnerable

Tuesday, August 10, 2010 CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Justin Theroux, 39; Angie Harmon, 39; Antonio Banderas, 50; Rosanna Arquette, 51 HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Emotional matters can be taken care of if you address what is bothering you head on. It’s up to you to start the ball rolling if there is something you want to pursue. Opportunities to make money as well as physical changes must be taken advantage of. There is no time for procrastination. Your numbers are 3, 11, 14, 27, 32, 35, 47 ARIES (March 21-April 19): There may be things you are questioning and people you aren’t sure of, but that is no reason to sit idle while life passes you by. The worst that can happen is rejection and the knowledge that it’s time to look and try to accomplish elsewhere. ★★★ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): With less work and more play you’ll discover new friends, closer connections to the people you already know and a strong bond with the youngsters and elders in your life. It’s time to focus on what makes you happy. Live, love and enjoy. ★★★★★ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Taking action will bring you respect and the help needed to complete your goals. Love is in the stars and, single or not, you should be building a better relationship with the one you love or getting involved in interests that can lead you to a potential partner. ★★★★ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t be afraid to do things differently but, at the same time, be prepared to deal with opposition. The possibilities ahead of you are endless but it will take initiative to get things underway. Don’t take on responsibilities that interfere with your plans. ★★★ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Deception or emotional blackmail will lead to financial and relationship uncertainty. Keep things out in the open. Stating what you want to do and the things you like and dislike will help you avoid personal upset. ★★★ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Everything will be predetermined by past performance. Taking a creative or unique approach will give you the edge you need to reach your goals. Having a practical attitude will send the right message. ★★★ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Put everything else aside and concentrate on keeping the peace. Don’t bend to the whims or demands being put on you by others. You may have to work on your own if you want to accomplish what you feel is necessary to get ahead. ★★★★ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Interference can be expected if you try to do too much. Ask for help but only from those who owe you for past favors. Don’t allow emotional issues to cloud your vision or cause you to take a pass on something you really want to do. ★★ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Take action and stop worrying. What you have to offer will separate you from the competition. An emotional relationship will inspire your creativity. Stick to your original plans. ★★★★ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): There is the possibility of misrepresentation if you don’t do your own negotiating. Nothing will be perfect, especially if you have unresolved problems. Clear your debts or reputation so you can move forward. ★★★ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Emotional matters will develop and partnerships should probably be questioned if things aren’t going according to plan. A love connection is apparent and can contribute to your emotional well-being and your financial future. ★★★ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Listen but don’t agree to getting involved in something that really isn’t your thing. An emotional reaction regarding a job or what’s expected of you will put you in a vulnerable position. Listen and respond carefully. ★★★ 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.

Musical chairs hits high gear in Cup Series O fficially, Chicagoland Speedway’s announcement Monday that it will host the first race of next year’s Chase for the Championship accelerated the game of musical dates for NASCAR’s top division. The music began last week when Atlanta Motor Speedway, which has hosted two races SPORTS a season since it Greer opened Smith 50 years ■■■ ago, said last week it is losing its March race, leaving its date on Labor Day weekend. The music is expected to continue today when Kentucky Speedway confirms it will host a Cup race for the first time next year and Kansas Speedway confirms it will have a second race. The moves are the beginning of the most dramatic scrambling in the order of races since NASCAR decided to leave Rockingham and Darlington. Kentucky is expected to move into the slot that has been occupied by Chicagoland on the second Saturday in July and is getting its date from Atlanta in a move by owner Speedway Motorsports Inc. Several reports indicate that Kansas will get its new date by the shifting a race from Auto Club Speedway. That move, which International Speedway Corporation wanted as part of its efforts to build a casino at the Kansas track, makes sense because Auto Club has featured plenty of empty seats since it got a second date at Rockingham’s expense in 2004. The move also serves as confirmation that ISC erred in giving Auto Club two dates, even though it is located in the Los Angeles suburb of Fontana. All of the dancing is fueled by the track-owning corporations trying to put races where they think they will fill stands at a time when sell outs have become rare. Chicagoland’s race will now be Sept. 18, with a Natiowide race a day earlier. To make

way for Chicago in the Chase, ISC ditched the October race at Auto Club, which will have its remaining race in March, according to the Associated Press. With the move, NASCAR moves out of its biggest media market in the Chase to its second biggest market. Atlanta losing a race, while disappointing to traditionalists, is also understandable on the part of SMI. The track’s spring race, which has butted heads with big college basketball weekends, has been poorly attended for years. Whether it has been the nightmarish traffic, the threat of cold weather or being 45 minutes south of Atlanta, plenty of empty seats have been the norm at AMS in the spring, even though the Atlanta area was one of the hotbeds for stock-car racing in its early years. SMI decided to try for better days elsewhere.

CHASE NUMBERS With four races left to decide the 12 drivers in the Chase for the Championship, the battle for the 12th and final spot battle is boiling down to Mark Martin and Clint Bowyer . They are separated by 10 points after Bowyer suffered a broken drive shaft in Sunday’s race at Watkins Glen, allowing Martin to move into the 12th position. Barring something unexpected, Martin is the only driver that Bowyer is likely to catch since Bowyer trails 11thplace Greg Biffle by 112 points. On the other side, just four drivers have any kind of legitimate shot of overtaking Martin and Bowyer. Ryan Newman is 73 behind Martin with Jamie McMurray 84 back. Dale Earnhardt Jr. is 121 behind Martin, with Kahne another 12 behind. David Reutimann also has a flicker, trailing Martin by 166. If nothing changes, McMurray will be one of four winners who will not be the in the Chase (Newman, Reutimann and Juan Pablo Montoya are the others) while at least three drivers who have not won will make it (the number is currently six, half of the Chase field). Who can blame fans if they are turned off by the Chase system? | 888-3556

Barbour, Maxwell spark Panthers in the Bahamas SPECIAL TO THE ENTERPRISE

NASSAU, Bahamas – The High Point University men’s basketball team took a 92-71 win over the Real Deal Shockers in an exhibition game at Sir Kendal Isaacs Gym lateSunday night. Junior Nick Barbour led five HPU players in double figures with 19 points and freshman Du’Vaughn Maxwell posted a double-double with 11 points and 10 rebounds. “I’m really excited about the way we played, and how we played so hard,” said HPU head coach Scott Cherry. “Every day we talk about effort and playing hard every possession, and the guys did that. We made a lot of technical, minor mistakes like not blocking out and not rotating, but we only practiced for six days before this. We hadn’t practiced offense against a zone defense at all, and that’s pretty much what they played against us the whole time. So for our guys to do what they did was pretty impressive. It was fun playing against another team.”

After Barbour’s 19, freshman Justin Cheek scored 12, Maxwell posted 11 Barbour and junior transfer Shay Shine and freshman Cameron Solomon each scored 10. Barbour went 9-for-11 from the free-throw line. Shine’s all-around game was impressive, as he also posted five steals, four rebounds and two assists. The game was played using the local league’s rules, including four quarters and a 24-second shot clock. The Panthers took a 21-12 lead after the first quarter, led by six points from Shine. He finished the first half with six points, four rebounds, three steals and a pair of assists. After a Cheek basket made it 36-22, the Shockers came back with the final six points of the quarter to cut HPU’s lead to 36-28 at halftime. Barry Carter led the Shockers with six points and six rebounds in the first half and Sidney Hillary also had six points.

Midway through the third quarter, Maxwell got the ball to senior Earnest Bridges down low for a dunk that made it 54-41. After the Shockers scored, Maxwell turned in a layup from the right side. The Panthers got a stop on the ensuing possession on a block by Bridges. HPU opened it up to a 70-54 lead by the end of the third quarter. The Shockers cut High Point’s lead down to 12 points twice in the fourth quarter. A jumper by Abel Joseph made it 75-63 with just over five minutes left. Maxwell then hit a layup and senior Tehran Cox scored, getting the Panthers out to a 15-plus point lead for good. “It has been a great experience and everything feels so comfortable,” said Cox, a native of Nassau. “Seeing my family and friends in the stands was great.” Cox scored four points and had a pair of rebounds and a pair of steals in the game. HPU will be back in action tonight at 7:30 p.m. at Sir Kendal Isaacs Gym. HPU is scheduled to play the Cybots.




he PGA Championship, the season’s final major for many decades, was first contested in 1916. Over the years, the PGA has earned a reputation for producing more unheralded champions than any other major. Sure, golf’s biggest names – Nicklaus, Snead, Hogan, Woods, etc. – won their fair share of Wannamaker Trophies. But the event seemed to showcase plenty of unlikely champions as well.

2 1

I decided to look back at the winners since 1990 to see if that trend has held. And, drum roll please... We find a mixed bag of PGA Championship winners. Big-name players have taken their share of the hardware. Tiger Woods owns four PGA crowns during that span, while Nick Price and Vijay Singh collected two each. Paul Azinger, Davis Love III, Phil Mickelson and Padraig Harrington took one PGA apiece.

But we also find plenty of surprise PGA champs. Wayne Grady in 1990, John Daly in ‘91, Mark Brooks in ‘96, David Toms in 2001, Rich Beem in 2002, Shaun Micheel in 2003 and Y.E. Yang in 2009 were hardly pre-tournament favorites. It will be fascinating to see how things unfold this week at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin.



High Point University has added Jenna Wrieden as assistant coach of men’s and women’s cross country and track & field, head coach Mike Esposito announced on Monday. Wrieden previously worked at Queens University, Arizona State and Appalachian State. “We are really excited to have Jenna join our program and help us win conference championships,” said Esposito. “She has an educational background in the sciences, has a wide variety of experience, and competed at a high level, which is what we were looking for.” Wrieden was most recently assistant coach at Queens, helping guide the women’s cross country team to its first Div. II NCAA Championship appearance and the men’s cross country team to a seventh-place finish at the 2009 NCAA Championship. She contributed to the coaching of 10 All-American performances, including NCAA champions Tanya Zeferjahn (10,000meter) and Michael Crouch (5,000-meter). Wrieden also had recruiting responsibilities and coached multiple event groups.

Report: NCAA looking at UNC assistant and agent BY BRIANA GORMAN ENTERPRISE DURHAM BUREAU

CHAPEL HILL — According to a report Monday by Yahoo Sports, the NCAA is investigating ties between North Carolina assistant coach John Blake and prominent NFL agent Gary Wichard. Blake coaches the Tar Heels’ defensive line, including senior Marvin Austin, who has also allegedly been the focus of the NCAA’s probe. Wide receiver Greg Little also is being investigated, according to reports, and both players were practicing with the second team again Monday. Blake and Wichard have known each other for years, and Yahoo Sports reported that the NCAA is looking into Blake’s one-time position as vice president of football operations for Wichard’s agency, Pro Tect Management. Wichard currently represents former UNC standout Kentwan Balmer, a firstround draft pick by the San Francisco 49ers in 2008.

Blake is considered one of the nation’s top recruiters and was responsible for the recruitment of Austin, the nation’s No. 1 high school player in 2007. UNC coach Butch Davis and Blake worked together with the Dallas Cowboys under Jimmy Johnson in the earlier 1990s. Blake also became the head coach at Oklahoma, his alma mater, in 1996 but was fired in 1998 after going 1222.

STURDIVANT DECLINES Linebacker Quan Sturdivant said he’s grown since his July citation for simple possession of marijuana, but the senior did not feel the need to elaborate after practice Monday. “I just want to talk about football right now,” Sturdivant said. The preseason All-ACC linebacker did say he learned he’s “got to be careful” after being cited by the Albemarle police for possession of less than half an ounce of marijuana on July 10. The charges were voluntarily dismissed after Sturdivant, the Tar Heels’

leading tackler a year ago, entered a deferred prosecution agreement. Sturdivant said he does not know if he will start in the season opener against LSU on Sept. 4, a decision that has not been announced by Davis. It was a tough few months for Sturdivant, whose grandmother passed away during the summer. The linebacker said it was really hard on him because he used to live with her and they were so close. “His grandmother was a really influential person in his life,” Davis said. “When you lose somebody like that in your life, it’s tough, and I think it’s just one of those situations where kids learn in adversity [that] you’ve got to find other people you can trust.” Senior safety Deunta Williams called the charge a “fluke-type thing” and said he holds nothing against Sturdivant. He said everyone makes mistakes, and Sturdivant just wants to play football. “We all mess up,” Williams said. “He’s got to work on getting his image

back and all that stuff, but it’ll happen. A lot of great players have done bad things, and the best thing you can do going forward is just to ball out and stay clean.”

BERNARD OUT FOR SEASON The Tar Heels lost their first player for the season due to an injury Sunday when freshman running back Giovani Bernard tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during practice. Davis said the injury happened during a one-one-one drill when Bernard planted his foot and made a cut. The 5-10, 205-pound tailback will receive a medical redshirt for 2010. Bernard, who is from Davie, Fla., was ranked the No. 12 running back in the country by and was expected to compete for playing time this season. “No one likes for any kid to ever get injured, but it’s an unfortunate thing and he’ll bounce back,” Davis said. “He’s a very strong mental person, and I know he’ll attack the rehab.”

Reds pick up Edmonds CINCINNATI (AP) — The NL Central-leading Cincinnati Reds have made a move to try to strengthen their outfield for a playoff run, getting Jim Edmonds from Milwaukee for outfielder Chris Dickerson. The trade gives the Reds a veteran outfielder as they try to fend off the St. Louis Cardinals and reach the playoffs for the first time since 1995. The Reds lead the Cardinals by two games heading into their three-game showdown starting Monday night. The 40-year-old Edmonds batted .286 with eight homers and 20 RBIs in 73 games with the Brewers.

Bard pumped six pitches past the Yankees Nos. 1 and 2 hitters, reaching 99 mph several times while striking them out. Mark Teixeira hit one of those fastballs from Bard in the eighth inning into the second deck for his 26th home run and Alex Rodriguez followed with a single to awaken

the crowd of 49,476. But after an out and a walk to Jorge Posada, Bard got pinch-hitter Lance Berkman on a popup to shallow left. Papelbon came on and silenced the harsh Bronx reception by inducing Kearns into a groundout to second base. Papelbon walked Jeter with one out in the ninth, and the Yankees captain stole second. But the Boston closer struck out Swisher and Teixeira — he’s 0 for 9 against Papelbon — for his 28th save in 33 chances. The Yankees went 34 on their homestand. They head to Texas for a


SEATTLE (AP) — The last-place Seattle Mariners have fired manager Don Wakamatsu. The team announced the dismissal of the major leagues’ first Japanese-American manager hours before Monday night’s game against Oakland. Wakamatsu is the fifth manager in the majors to be fired this season. Baltimore’s Dave Trembley, Kansas City’s Trey Hillman, Arizona’s A.J. Hinch and Florida’s Fredi Gonzalez also were dismissed. Seattle entered the day 42-70, the second-worst record in the American League. The Mariners added pitcher Cliff Lee, infielder Chone Figgins and outfielder Milton Bradley in the offseason, and began the year with expectations of their first postseason since 2001. Wakamatsu had guided Seattle to an 85-77 record in his first season after taking over a team that went 61-101 in 2008. But a poorly constructed roster has produced the worst offense in baseball and doomed them to 221⁄2 games behind first-place Texas in the AL West. The Mariners announced 43-year-old Daren Brown, the manager of Triple-A Tacoma for the last three-plus season, is replacing Wakamatsu on an interim basis. Seattle also relieved bench coach Ty Van Burkleo and pitching coach Rick Adair. The team also released performance coach Steve Hecht. Roger Hansen takes over as the bench coach.

showdown between firstplace teams.

CARDINALS 7, REDS 3 CINCINNATI — Skip Schumaker hit his first career grand slam during St. Louis Cardinals’ biggest inning of the season, supplying more than enough runs for righthander Chris Carpenter to beat the Cincinnati Reds for the ninth time in a row, 7-3 on Monday night. The Cardinals provided a lopsided start to their showdown for first place in the NL Central, trimming Cincinnati’s lead to one game.

NBA slates two in London LONDON (AP) — Those high-flying slam dunks and long-distance 3-pointers are going to mean a lot more to the London crowd next year when the NBA plays its first regular-season games in Europe. NBA commissioner David Stern announced Monday that the Toronto Raptors and New Jersey Nets will face each other March 4 and 5 at the O2 Arena, the same venue that has hosted preseason games over the last several years. “It’s going to make basketball shine as a sport of passion, intensity, teamwork,” Stern said on a conference call. The NBA has been looking to expand overseas for years.

GREENSBORO – At least one player ranked among the top 15 in the world will be playing in next week’s Wyndham Championship. The tournament announced Monday that Anthony Kim, a threetime winner on the PGA Tour who is No. 14 in the world rankings and No. 13 in Fedex Cup standings, has committed to play at Sedgefield as he tries to work his game into shape after a lengthy layoff following wrist surgery. Kim won the Shell Open and finished third at The Master in April. After finishing seventh in the Quail Hollow Championship, a tournament he won in 2008, Kim had

the procedure. He returned to tournament play at last week’s World Golf Championship in Akron, Ohio, where he tied for 76th. a whopping 28 shots behind winner Hunter Mayhan. Kim has four top-10 finishes in eight starts this year and is sixth in Ryder Cup standings. His other victory came in the 2008 AT&T National. Other notables entered include 2008 Masters winner Trevor Immelman, 2009 U.S. Open champion Lucas Glover, two-time Wyndham winners Davis Love III and Rocco Mediate, John Daly, David Duval, David Toms and the last three Wyndham Championship winners -- Ryan Moore, Carl Pettersson and Brandt Snedeker.

Rohanna sets Women’s Am scoring record with 65 CHARLOTTE. (AP) — Rachel Rohanna, an allBig Ten player at Ohio State, set a U.S. Women’s Amateur scoring record with a 65 during a muggy first round of stroke play on Monday. Rohanna had nine birdies and two bogeys to finish 7-under on the 6,559-yard Charlotte Country Club course. Kellee Booth (1998), Natalie Gulbis (1999) and Amanda Blumenherst (2008) previously shared the 18-hole mark of 66. Brooke Pancake, of Chattanooga, Tenn., fin-

ished with a 68 as conditions eased slightly with some cloud cover and a slight breeze in the afternoon. Girls junior champion Doris Chen of Bradenton, Fla., and Jaclyn Sweeney, a senior at Arizona State from Andover, Mass., were at 3under. Sixty-four of 156 players will advance to match play after a second day of stroke play Tuesday in this U.S. Golf Association event, concluding with a 36hole final on Sunday.

Gordon, wife welcome son CHARLOTTE (AP) — Another baby on board for NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon. Gordon says on his website that Leo Benjamin Gordon was born Monday. Gordon is the latest driver to welcome

a baby this season. Elliott Sadler, Carl Edwards and Jimmie Johnson became first-time fathers this year. Juan Pablo Montoya’s wife welcomed their third baby last month.


Starting spots on Panthers’ defensive line up for grabs SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) — Tank Tyler has a sense of what outsiders think of Carolina’s revamped defensive line without Julius Peppers and two other starters. “I don’t read the papers, but they might say we’re the worst line in the league,” Tyler said Monday. “I would appreciate them saying that, because I’m always out to prove somebody wrong.” While Tyler won’t have much to do with silencing skeptics wondering where all the sacks will come from now that Peppers is in Chicago, the defensive tackle will help determine if the Panthers can stop the run after Maake Kemoeatu and Damione Lewis were released in the offseason. Tyler thinks he couldn’t be in a better place. After asking for — and getting — a trade from Kansas City last season, the Fayetteville, N.C., native and N.C. State product claims he’s recovered from knee surgery and ready to shine for his home state team. “I’m feeling great,” said Tyler, who on Monday was cleared to begin practicing twice a day. “I’m glad to be a part of this defense. It’s a high-intensity defense. There’s a lot of enthusiasm and lot of passion for defense, period.” While Charles Johnson and Everette Brown figure to split time at Peppers’ old position at end, the tackle spots are far from settled. Just how many questions the Panthers have were on display on Monday morning, when the coaching staff experimented with numerous lineups. Tyler and veteran Ed Johnson had been taking the majority of the snaps at defensive tackle with the first team. But they were shuffled off to mostly second-team work in the morning workout, with Derek Landri and Louis Leonard working with the starters. “It’s wide open because

SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) — The Carolina Panthers have brought in two offensive linemen after the third-team line struggled in a scrimmage over the weekend. The Panthers signed tackle Jason Capizzi and claimed guard Andrew Crummey off waivers from Jacksonville on Monday. The Panthers waived undrafted rookies Noah Franklin and Kurtis Gregory. The 6-foot-9, 330-pound Capizzi has bounced around several teams and practice squads over the past few seasons. He was waived by Cleveland in June. The 6-5, 300-pound Crummey was let go by the Jaguars on Sunday. He’s also briefly spent time with Washington and Cincinnati. The Panthers were looking to add veteran depth on the line before Thursday’s preseason opener at Baltimore after protection problems in Saturday’s scrimmage.

we don’t have any returning starters there. There’s competition there,” coach John Fox. “We’re learning them, they’re learning us. They’ll sort that out as we move forward.” Added Tyler: “Until that first snap against the Giants (in Week 1), you probably won’t even know who’s starting.” Tyler, though, thinks he

has a good shot after an upand-down start to his pro career. A first-team all-Atlantic Coast Conference selection as a senior with the Wolfpack, the 6-foot-2, 306pound Tyler was as thirdround pick of the Chiefs. After playing little as a rookie, he started all 16 games in 2008, recording 41 tackles.

But the Chiefs changed coaches and switched from a 4-3 to a 3-4 defense before last season. Tyler was miscast as a nose guard and soon lost his job. He was rarely playing, and getting frustrated. “I guess I wasn’t the fit they were looking for, obviously,” Tyler said. “But I felt like I played well. They were some great coaches, so all respect to them. It was just time for a change.” Tyler claimed he asked to be traded on Oct. 20. Late that night, the injury-depleted Panthers acquired him for a fifth-round pick in this year’s draft. “I was going back home,” he said. “I was more than happy.” The Panthers had been going through numerous tackles since Kemoeatu went down with a ruptured Achilles’ tendon on the first day of camp last year. Tyler helped in a reserve role for six games until he, too, was sidelined with a right knee injury that he said required microfracture surgery.

Obama entertains Super Bowl champs WASHINGTON (AP) — It took one shout of “Who Dat!” to get the celebration started in the White House on Monday as President Barack Obama saluted the Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints. The band played “When the Saints Go Marching In” as team members came in smiling to cheers and shouts for quarterback Drew Brees. Team owner Tom Benson pumped his fist in the air, flashing a Super Bowl yellow-gold diamond ring. Obama congratulated the team, owner and coaches in an East Room ceremony. He said the team lifted up “the hopes and the dreams of a shattered city” in the wake of the ravages of Hurricane Katrina. The Saints beat the Indianapolis Colts, 31-17, in Super Bowl XLIV in Miami. Obama said the Saints’ Super Bowl win was huge for New Orleans and for the country. He noted that after Ka-


NEW YORK (AP) — With Terrell Owens facing his old team, the Hall of Fame game drew the highest preliminary television rating for a preseason NFL game in six years. The game on NBC on Sunday night between the Bengals and Cowboys earned a 7.6 overnight rating and 13 share. It was the best preseason rating since an 8.2/13 for a Titans-Cowboys game in 2004 and up 31 percent from a 5.8/10 for last year’s Buffalo-Tennessee Hall of Fame game. trina, the Saints had to play an entire season on the road because their home stadium, the Superdome, was ruined in the storm. “Back then people didn’t even know if the team was coming back. People didn’t even know if the city was coming back,” Obama said.

No shortage of chances for ACC to improve image BY JOEDY MCCREARY AP SPORTS WRITER

The Atlantic Coast Conference’s reputation has taken plenty of hits since it expanded to 12 teams. The league certainly has plenty of chances this year to shut those critics up. A conference best known for its basketball can prove it belongs among college football’s big boys with a few victories in a lineup of early intersectional games that could go a long way toward reshaping its battered perception. “There’s pride in your school, pride in your league and pride in your fraternity of (coaches),” Boston College’s Frank Spaziani said. “It’s a tough league, and I don’t think we hold a back seat to anybody.” They’ll have several chances to prove that, all in the first month of the season: North Carolina opens with LSU, and two nights later, Virginia Tech plays Boise State. Miami visits Ohio State. Virginia travels to Southern California. Clemson is at Auburn. Florida State takes on Oklahoma. Even Duke has the chance to pull an upset for the ages when it plays host to defending national champion Alabama. If it pulls out a few victories in there, the ACC can strengthen its claim that football is much more than just something to pass the time until hoops season tips off. A series of lopsided losses, though, would represent another blow to the image of a conference that has a 2-10 record in BCS games – the worst mark among the six leagues with automatic access to those glitzy bowls. A capsule look at teams in predicted order of finish:

North Carolina looking for third straight bowl berth, which hasn’t happened since Tar Heels went bowling every year from 1993-98. MIAMI – Key players: QB Jacory Harris, WR Leonard Hankerson, DE Allen Bailey, CB Brandon Harris. Returning starters: 6 offense, 8 defense. Notes: Hurricanes hope to regain RB Graig Cooper, coming off a major knee injury from Champs Sports Bowl loss to Wisconsin. GEORGIA TECH – Key players: QB Josh Nesbitt, RBs Anthony Allen and Roddy Jones, LB Brad Jefferson. Returning starters: 6 offense, 8 defense. Notes: Defending ACC champs are looking for replacements for their leading rusher (Jonathan Dwyer) and receiver (Demaryius Thomas). ... Nesbitt is 692 yards shy of Woody Dantzler’s league record for yards rushing by a quarterback. . DUKE – Key players: WRs Donovan Varner and Conner Vernon, CB Chris Rwabukamba. Returning starters: 9 offense, 6 defense. Notes: Three returning Blue Devils had at least 50 receptions last year, giving new QB Sean Renfree several options as he gets comfortable replacing four-year starter Thad Lewis. VIRGINIA – Key players: QB Marc Verica, WR Kris Burd, DB Ras-I Dowling. Returning starters: 6 offense, 6 defense. Notes: New coach Mike London served two stints as an assistant coach in Charlottesville. ... Cavaliers’ last-place finish in 2009 was their first since the ACC split into divisions in ’05. .

ATLANTIC DIVISION COASTAL DIVISION VIRGINIA TECH – Key players: QB Tyrod Taylor, RB Ryan Williams, WRs Danny Coale and Jarrett Boykin, DT John Graves. Returning starters: 8 offense, 5 defense. Notes: Virginia Tech and Texas the only teams with at least 10 wins in each of last six seasons. ... Traditionally stout Tech defense must find replacements for six starters, including LB Cody Grimm and DE Jason Worilds. NORTH CAROLINA – Key players: QB T.J. Yates, DL Marvin Austin, LBs Quan Sturdivant and Bruce Carter, S Deunta Williams. Returning starters: 10 offense, 9 defense. Notes: Tar Heels have an ACC-best 21 returning starters, including both specialists. ... They return the bulk of the ACC’s top defense in 2009, but season could hinge on how well they handle the distraction of an NCAA probe into whether two players had improper contact with agents. ...

FLORIDA STATE – Key players: QB Christian Ponder, OG Rodney Hudson, LB Nigel Bradham. Returning starters: 10 offense, 6 defense. Notes: New coach Jimbo Fisher looking to lead Seminoles to NCAA-best 29th straight bowl appearance. ... Ponder averaged nearly 322 total yards in his nine starts last season. BOSTON COLLEGE – Key players: RB Montel Harris, LBs Mark Herzlich and Luke Kuechly. Returning starters: 8 offense, 7 defense. Notes: Harris is on pace to break Derrick Knight’s school career rushing record this season. He’s 1,368 yards shy of the mark of 3,725 and has averaged nearly 1,200 in his first two seasons at BC. CLEMSON – Key players: QB Kyle Parker, RBs Andre Ellington and Jamie Harper, DT Jarvis Jenkins. Returning starters: 7 offense, 6 defense.

Notes: Parker, the Colorado Rockies’ first-round draft pick, is the only player in Division I history to throw 20 touchdown passes and hit 20 home runs in the same academic year. N.C. STATE – Key players: QB Russell Wilson, WRs Jarvis Williams and Owen Spencer, LB Nate Irving. Returning starters: 7 offense, 5 defense. Notes: Wolfpack have two of the league’s top receivers, with Spencer averaging a FBS-best 25.5 yards per catch and Williams leading the ACC with 11 touchdown receptions. ... The Rockies also drafted Wilson, who spent the summer playing minor-league ball. ... N.C. State must find some stability in the secondary, which was a revolving door last season in allowing opponents to complete nearly 63 percent of their passes. WAKE FOREST – Key players: RB Josh Adams, WR Marshall Williams, CB Kenny Okoro. Returning starters: 6 offense, 7 defense. Notes: Demon Deacons hope they’ve found a replacement for four-year starter Riley Skinner in Skylar Jones, who is considered more of a running threat. ... Five of Wake Forest’s seven losses were by a combined 13 points, while two wins came by a touchdown or less. MARYLAND – Key players: WR Torrey Smith, RB Da’Rel Scott, LB Alex Wujciak. Returning starters: 7 offense, 5 defense. Notes: Scott looking to regain his form after finishing with just 425 yards rushing during an injuryplagued junior season. ... Terps’ one ACC victory in 2009 was their fewest since they were 1-7 in the league in 1998. ... Projected QB Jamarr Robinson made two starts in Chris Turner’s absence last season.

Freddie Mac requests $1.8 billion in aid WASHINGTON (AP) – Government-controlled mortgage buyer Freddie Mac is asking for $1.8 billion in additional federal aid after posting a larger loss in the second quarter. Freddie Mac said Monday it lost $6 billion, or $1.85 per share, in the April-toJune period. The company is required to pay a 10 percent annual dividend to the Treasury Department on money it has received from the government. That made up $1.3 billion of the



Internet calling service Skype files for IPO NEW YORK – Skype SA, the Internet calling service that was controlled until last year by eBay Inc., filed Monday for a U.S. initial public offering. Luxembourg-based Skype tentatively put the value of the offering at $100 million, but that’s a rough estimate only used as a basis for calculating the filing fee for the Securities and Exchange Commission. Skype did not say when its shares would go on sale, or at what price. It expects to list on the Nasdaq Stock Market under an unspecified symbol.

Gas prices to remain steady as summer ends Motorists planning a latesummer getaway should find gasoline prices littlechanged through August. The national average for a gallon of unleaded gasoline was $2.774 Monday, according to AAA, Wright Express and Oil Price Information Service. That’s about 3.9 cents higher than a week ago and 13.1 cents higher than a year ago.

Tyson income up 89 percent for quarter NEW YORK – Meat producer Tyson Foods Inc. posted an 89 percent jump in third-quarter net income, helped by higher beef and pork prices and a chicken business that’s recovering. The Springdale, Ark.based company said its prepared foods unit struggled in the quarter because of rising ingredient costs. The company reported net income of $248 million or 65 cents per share in the quarter ending July 3, up from $131 million, or 35 cents per share last year. ENTERPRISE NEWS SERVICE REPORTS


company’s second-quarter losses. The company lost $840 million, or 26 cents a share, in the same quarter last year. The government rescued McLean, Va.-based Freddie Mac and sibling company Fannie Mae from the brink of failure nearly two years ago. The new request means they have needed $148.2 billion to stay afloat, about $63.1 billion of which is being used by Freddie Mac. Freddie Mac is losing money from bad loans it

backed, many of them before the housing market went bust. It had $118 billion in bad loans at the end of June, up from $103.4 billion at the end of last year. It owned more than 62,000 foreclosed properties in June, up from about 35,000 a year earlier. Both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have both lost tens of billions of dollars during the past two years and both are asking the government to prop them up.

Sara Lee CEO steps down NEW YORK (AP) – Sara Lee Corp. Chairman and CEO Brenda Barnes will step down permanently to focus on improving her health following a stroke, the food maker said Monday. Barnes, 56, had been on temporary medical leave since May 14. She will also leave her position on Sara Lee’s board of directors. CFO Marcel Smits, who has been handling the CEO duties in her place, will continue to do so until a new CEO is named. The food maker, based in Downers Grove, Ill., said its board has started a process to select a new CEO and is looking inside and outside of the company. Possible successors could be Smits, who

joined the company last October from Dutch telecom company Koninklijke KPN NV, where he was chief financial officer. Another candidate could be CEO of North American Retail and Foodservice, Christopher John “CJ” Fraleigh. He, Smits, and board member James Crown have been working together to oversee the business in Barnes’ absence. Crown took over as chairman and will remain in that position. Barnes joined Sara Lee as president and chief operating officer in 2004. She became CEO in 2005. She led the company, known for its namesake breads and brands including Jimmy Dean and Hillshire Farm, through a restructuring.

Honda recalls Accord, Civic models over ignition switch WASHINGTON (AP) – Honda Motor Co. is recalling the popular Accord and Civic passenger cars to address problems with an ignition switch that could allow the key to be removed without the transmission being shifted into park, its third recall over the problem since 2003. Honda said the most recent recall involved 384,220 vehicles and includes 2003 model year Accord and Civics and 2003-2004 versions of the Honda Element. Honda told the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that the defect with the automatic transmissions could lead to a vehicle rolling away and increase the risk of a crash.

The Japanese automaker said in a statement the recall would involve about 197,000 Accords, 117,000 Civics and 69,000 Elements. The company said it has received several complaints about the ignition interlock and “is aware of a small number of related incidents, including one that resulted in a minor injury.” Honda said the ignition interlock mechanism could be damaged or worn during use and “it may become possible to remove the ignition key when the shift lever is not in park.” Unless the parking brake is set, the vehicle could roll away under those circumstances and lead to a crash.

Stock rise slightly as investors await Fed meeting NEW YORK (AP) — Investors are getting optimistic that the Federal Reserve will restart some of its economic stimulus programs. Stocks closed moderately higher Monday, a sign that many traders expect the Fed to take steps to put some energy back into the recovery. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 45 points, more than making back its loss from Friday. Volume on the New York Stock Exchange fell to its lowest level of the year as many investors stayed out of the market while they waited for the Fed’s decision. Many have been avoiding big investment decisions for much of the summer because they have no sense of where the economy is headed. The Fed’s assessment of the economy, and any plans to resume its stimulus measures, will be issued after its meeting ends Tuesday afternoon. “The market loves stimulus. The market wants stimulus,” said Joe Saluzzi, co-head of equity trading at Themis Trading LLC in Chatham, N.J. The Fed will likely leave its federal funds rate near zero, but the central bank could signal plans to restart some programs such as its purchase of mortgagebacked securities or buy Treasury bonds.

Little relief seen in public sector jobs


People make their way past the McDonald’s restaurant at Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco. McDonald’s Corp. posted its biggest monthly increase of U.S. sales in two years on Monday.

Cool drinks heat up McDonald’s sales in July CHICAGO (AP) – McDonald’s lesson from July: If you want to start selling cold, fruity drinks, pick one of the hottest months in U.S. history. The fast-food giant posted its biggest monthly increase in more than a year in an important U.S. sales figure as U.S. as the fast-food chain’s new fruit smoothies and ice-cold frappes got a warm reception from customers. The increase shows just how much the behemoth is outpacing its competitors as customers keep flocking to the world’s largest hamburger chain while competitors post anemic U.S. sales. Shares touched an all-time high Monday morning. “They were pretty impressive results,” said Morningstar restaurant analyst R.J. Hottovy. “It just shows that the smoothies product

has been a big win for the company and a big hit among consumers. They did well with the timing of the product.” July sales at restaurants open at least 13 months climbed 5.7 percent – the biggest monthly increase since it recorded a 6.1 percent gain in April 2009. At the same time, the National Weather Service said the month was one of the the hottest on record nationwide, shatterring records in many East Coast cities. Overall, McDonald’s Corp. said the sales measure rose 7 percent around the globe and outpaced expectations. It climbed 5.3 percent in Europe and 10.1 percent in the rest of the world. The figure is considered an important gauge of a restaurant chain’s performance because it

excludes the effects of restaurants that open or close during the year. McDonald’s said U.S. consumers flocked to its roughly 14,000 restaurants during the month, seeking its new drinks that are part of the restaurant chain’s rapidly expanding beverage lineup. In addition to the highly profitable smoothies, which launched nationwide in mid-July and cost a little over $2 for a small, and frappes, customers also sought out the company’s value meals. It’s those type of menu items that have kept McDonald’s a step ahead of competitors in recent years, particularly in the U.S. where its value menu helped insulate it from much of the economic weakness that hurt Burger King Corp. and Wendy’s/Arby’s Group Inc.

WASHINGTON (AP) – An injection of $26 billion in federal aid won’t be enough to save the jobs of more than a half million people who work for state and local governments or for companies that do business with them. Economists say state and local budget gaps are so vast that up to 30,000 public jobs will be cut each month at least through year’s end. And private companies that contract with states and localities are likely to cut even more deeply. All told, 600,000 to 700,000 jobs will likely vanish over the next 12 months at states, localities, private contractors and other businesses that depend on government business, according to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, a Washington think tank. The July unemploy-

ment report, released Friday, showed state and local governments cut 48,000 jobs last month – the most in a year. State and local governments already have shed 169,000 jobs this year. And since their peak in 2008, state and local payrolls have shrunk by 316,000; that figure does not include private sector jobs tied to government spending. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke warned last week that cuts in state and local spending and jobs were helping to slow the economic recovery. The cuts stem from shrinking state income and tax revenue resulting from the recession. Total state revenue fell 11 percent from fiscal year 2008, when the recession began, to fiscal 2010, the National Association of State Budget Officers has estimated.

BlackBerrys will stay welcome in Bahrain DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) – Bahrain’s foreign minister said Sunday the country has no plans to follow its Persian Gulf neighbors in banning some BlackBerry services because security fears do not outweigh the technological benefits. His comments come as device maker Research in Motion Ltd. is facing opposition by Saudi

Arabia and the United Arab Emirates to the way its encrypted e-mail and messenger services are managed. Bahrain’s Sheik Khaled bin Ahmed Al Khalifa told The Associated Press the handheld devices raise legitimate concerns, but that his nation has decided that banning some of the phones’ features is “not a way of dealing with it.”
