DAVIDSON COUNTY – The Davidson County Board of Education on Wednesday approved a preliminary design of a new middle school that the system hopes to build in the northern part of the county. The school is proposed to be located on Midway School Road near the Hoy Long Road intersection. Commissioners agreed to buy 133 acres in April at a price of $2.35 million for a new middle and high school. Clark Pierce, vice president of Walter Robbs Callahan & Pierce Architects, and Jay Temple, the system’s executive director of auxiliary services, gave a presentation on the design and floor plans before the school board approved the item. “Hopefully, we are at a point where we can get this project under way and move dirt and put some bricks and mortar up,” Temple said. Pierce said the school is designed to have 137,756 square feet, with a capacity of 864 students. The approved plan allows for the system to have an “easy” expansion on the school’s wings, Temple said. “If you want to expand to 1,000, you wouldn’t necessarily need to add on to each classroom,” Pierce said. “You would add on to two wings and easily achieve 1,000.” Fred Mock, superintendent of Davidson County Schools, said a new middle school in the northern part of the county would alleviate overcrowding at North Middle and Ledford Middle. He said each of those schools are 300 to 350 students above capacity. “This is a safety issue,” Mock said. “This is a community issue. It is of concern for us to stay ahead of growth in these two communities.” School officials hope to have the construction of the school out for bid in October. “The big caveat is commissioners giving us approval to get to the design stage, but not to the bid stage,” board member Kenny Meredith said. “That’s going to be a hoop we are going to have to jump through. They have got to find a way to pay for this thing.” School officials said it is too early to speculate how much the school would cost until bids come in on the project. | 888-3657

Last US combat brigade heads home KHABARI CROSSING, Kuwait (AP) – As their convoy reached the barbed wire at the border crossing out of Iraq on Wednesday, the soldiers whooped and cheered. Then they scrambled out of their stifling hot armored vehicles, unfurled an American flag and posed for group photos. For these troops of the 4th Stryker Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division, it was a moment of relief. Seven years and five months after the U.S.-led invasion,



Insurgents kill five Iraqi government workers. 4A the last American combat brigade was leaving Iraq, well ahead of President Barack Obama’s Aug. 31 deadline for ending U.S. combat operations there. Some 50,000 U.S. trooops will stay another year in what is designated as a noncombat role. They will carry weapons

to defend themselves and accompany Iraqi troops on missions (but only if asked). Special forces will continue to help Iraqis hunt for terrorists. The U.S. death toll – at least 4,415 by Pentagon count as of Wednesday – may not yet be final. The Stryker brigade, named for the vehicle that delivers troops into and out of battle, has lost 34 troops in Iraq. It was at the forefront of many of the fiercest battles, including opera-

tions in eastern Baghdad and Diyala province, an epicenter of the insurgency, during “the surge” of 2007. It evacuated troops at the battle of Tarmiyah, an outpost where 28 out of 34 soldiers were wounded holding off insurgents. Before the Aug. 31 deadline, about half the brigade’s 4,000 soldiers flew out like most of the others leaving Iraq, but its leadership volunteered to have the remainder depart over land.

Time Warner, ESPN contract fight lingers BY PAUL B. JOHNSON ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

TRIAD – A looming deadline between the sports broadcasting giant ESPN and the cable conglomerate Time Warner couldn’t come at a more nerve-racking time for football fans. The current contract between ESPN and Time Warner will expire Sept. 2, just as the fall football season gears up locally and across the nation. If no new contract is in place, ESPN channels could drop off Time Warner’s lineup as football games begin. Sept. 2 is the kickoff night for a slate of college football games on ESPN, including Wake Forest University hosting Presbyterian College. The first weekend of September rolls out the college football season in earnest. The contract between ESPN and Time Warner would expire a week and a half before the first full weekend of this year’s National Football League season. ESPN has the rights to carry Monday night NFL games. Negotiations between cable companies and networks usually center around how much money a cable

company is willing to pay a network to carry its programming. Time Warner has neared deadlines to negotiate new contracts with networks in the past. Rarely does the deadline pass and disrupt service to customers. Still, the possibility of a cutoff of ESPN service on Time Warner has drawn the attention of TV viewers and other television service providers. Competitors of Time Warner are marketing their services in the Triad this month, trying to take advantage of the unfulfilled negotiations between the cable company and ESPN and convince customers to switch TV service providers before Sept. 2. Time Warner issued a statement saying that negotiations with ESPN are well under way. “Just like other distributors, Time Warner Cable negotiates with television networks all the time for the rights to air their programming. We successfully negotiate dozens of programming agreements every year with no service interruptions for our customers,” the cable company indicates. ESPN said in a statement that the

Broadband Lawyer: SC mom accused funding includes of killing sons is remorseful money for projects

ORANGEBURG, S.C. (AP) – The mother accused of suffocating her two young sons and trying to cover it up by staging an accident says she is remorseful and has been speaking with the family minister, her attorney said Wednesday. “She’s tearful, as anybody would be under these circumstances,” defense attorney Carl B. Grant said after a brief hearing. “She’s been very sad, very remorseful about all of this stuff, all of the allegations.” Orangeburg County Sheriff Larry Williams has said 29-year-old Shaquan Duley expressed little remorse when she confessed Monday to killing her two young sons, ages 2 years and 18 months. Duley, who is unemployed, told authorities she smothered the boys after a fight with her own mother, who badgered her about her failures as a parent and inability to provide for her family financially. She first told investigators the boys drowned after her car plunged into a river early Monday morning. “She truly felt, ’If I don’t have these toddlers, I can be free,”’ Williams said. About 80 relatives, friends and curious onlookers attended Wednesday’s hearing, Duley’s first court appearance since she was charged with two counts of murder. Her family has largely kept silent about her arrest, but before the hearing, her sister said she think Williams’ portrayal of events has been fair.


TRIAD – A second round of federal stimulus funding for North Carolina includes money for projects in the Piedmont. The office of Gov.

The latest round of funding includes $926,537 for WinstonNet Inc., which will allow WinstonNet to

Commission compared amendment to A-frame signs FROM PAGE 1

before the commission and the City Council because those opposed to the ordinance said some houses that had multiple residents didn’t have driveways large enough to hold all vehicles. But Lee Burnette, director of the planning department, said the ordinance was created to “limit parking only to those areas designed for parking,” such as driveways or, in some areas, the side of the street. “Overall, (enforcing) it has gone smoothly and we haven’t had

some of the big violation numbers that other cities our size have had,” Burnette said. “We’ve had a few folks that have had to make changes, but it’s gone better than anticipated. It’s a continuous effort to enforce it.” Commission members also compared the amendment to another development ordinance that allows for A-frame signs, or sandwich board signs, to be used by businesses on the sidewalks in the Uptowne High Point and showroom area. The


City Council adopted an amendment on Monday. “Anything that’s mobile can be in compliance one day and out of compliance the next day,” Burnette said about the signs. Education is a part of implementing new rules, Burnette said. Code enforcement officers went door to door in some instances and passed out fliers to explain the vehicle regulations to neighborhoods. “It’s really a proactive process,” he said. “We have violators out

there, but we’re focusing on the chronic violators.” Bossi said much of the enforcement also is complaint-based. “It’s hard to enforce sometimes because neighbors see someone’s car parked in the front yard all of the time like late at night or on the weekends,” she said. “We aren’t in the office at that time. On occasion, we’ve had to work after hours on weekends or early mornings just to see the vehicle (in violation).”

Big splinter on slide pierces boy’s abdomen ROCKY RIDGE, Md. (AP) – Firefighters say an 8-year-old boy has been hospitalized after a nearly foot-long splinter pierced his lower abdomen as he went headfirst down a wooden slide at a Maryland park. The accident hap-

pened on a 40-foot slide built in 1950 that is a local attraction at Mount Tabor Park in Rocky Ridge. Second Assistant Fire Chief Luke Humerick Jr. said Wednesday he used a utility knife to cut the splinter from the board on which the

boy was pinned, halfway down the slide. Humerick says the boy was in good spirits when he was taken Tuesday to a Washington hospital with the splinter still inside him. His condition wasn’t immediately available.

MOSCOW – Russian President Dmitry Medvedev on Wednesday offered Pakistan support in dealing with catastrophic floods as he hosted the leaders of Afghanistan, Pakistan and Tajikistan for talks on efforts to stabilize the region.

BAGHDAD (AP) – A series of attacks and roadside bomb explosions killed five Iraqi government employees on Wednesday as insurgents maintain a steady campaign of attacks against the country’s institutions and security forces. Suspected Sunni militants have frequently targeted Iraq’s policemen and soldiers looking to expose the inability of the Shiite-dominated government to protect the country. The departure of the U.S. military has turned Iraqi forces and government institutions into attractive targets for insurgents, exploiting security gaps and the political vacuum five months after an inconclusive election.

After international protests, Iran last month lifted the stoning sentence, but she could still face execution by hanging.

Muslims pray daily at Pentagon’s 9/11 crash site

WASHINGTON (AP) – While Americans are bitterly debating the proposed building of a mosque near New York’s ground zero, Muslims have been praying for years less than 80 feet from where another hijacked jetliner struck. The Pentagon chapel is part of a memorial to the 184 people killed in 2001 when hijacked American Airlines Flight 77 flew into the west side of the Pentagon and plowed through three of the building’s five office rings. As part of its massive renovation, the Pentagon opened the nondenominational chapel in November 2002. The chapel hosts a daily prayer group and weekly worship service for Muslims and provides similar services for Jews, Hindus,

Mormons, Protestants, Catholics and Episcopalians. Pentagon officials say that no one in the military or the families of the victims of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks has ever protested. They describe the 80seat chapel as a peaceful place where some 300 to 400 Pentagon employees come to pray each week. The goal of the Pentagon chaplain office, which runs the chapel, is to “provide assistance and support for the religious, spiritual and morale needs of all service members and employees,� said Army spokesman George Wright. A proposal to build an Islamic cultural center near ground zero in New York has prompted angry protests by victims of the 2001 attacks, which

Dignitaries attend funeral for Stevens

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) – Funeral services were held Wednesday for former U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens, who died last week in a plane crash in southwest Alaska and was the longest-serving Republican in senate history. The funeral Wednesday marks the end of Stevens three days of remembrances that began Monday when several hundred people attended a Catholic Mass in Anchorage. Mourners filed past a closed casket Tuesday as Stevens’ body lay in repose at an Episcopal church. Vice President Joe Biden was to speak at the funeral, and more than 20 current and former senators, governors and foreign representatives also were attending the funeral.

or stayed the same on Obama’s watch. S t i l l , three-quarters also say it’s unrealisObama tic to expect noticeable economic improvements in the first 18 months of the president’s term. And Obama’s overall approval rating was unaffected; it remained at 49 percent, in part because most Americans still like him personally. Americans’ dim view of the economy grew even more pessimistic this summer as the nation’s unemployment rate stubbornly hovered near 10 percent. That’s been a drag on both Obama and

Democrats, who control Congress. “The economy is on life support,� says Scott Bradley, 38, general manager of a carpet store in Columbia, Mo. Bradley says he voted for Obama in 2008 but he wouldn’t again. He blames Congress for the unemployment woes but says, “Obama’s policies are making the economy worse.� Even staunch Obama backers like college student Julius Taylor of Flint, Mich., struggle to stay optimistic about the economy, particularly when they see the recession’s toll in their backyard. “I’d like to say it’s improving, but there are a lot of indicators it’s not,� says Taylor, 25.

Two-party control leads to beneficial compromise

Kristine Kaiser’s column on Aug. 14 (“It’s moderates who act to lead our nation forward”) is correct except that we do not have moderates running the country right now. History has proven that when we do not have one party in total power, the government works better and people will compromise. Look at the early 1980s when President Reagan had to work with U.S. House Speaker Tip O’Neill and in 1994 when President Clinton had to work with a Republican-controlled Congress. Everybody had to work as one, and that made all things better. We do need to replace people in Congress now. They only care about being re-elected and that is it. If after the elections in November, we have two parties in power, then we will have moderates running the country. Then, we do not have one agenda and that’s it. We must make a change and not have far right or far left in charge. Let’s elect different people and watch how President

Obama will all of a sudden have to compromise, as will the Congress, and maybe we can have the will of the people done in the decisions that are made. Go vote! RAY MEADOWS High Point

Five books a weekend is too much for students In the Aug. 11 paper, on page one of the Local section, there was a story headlined “Book backpacks” about packing bookbags for kids and sending home five books a weekend for each child for first, second and third grades in Thomasville. Maybe they should consider this first – five books a weekend is way too many. 1) It’s too easy to lose some. 2) It’s too much like homework. 3) Children won’t appreciate them.

It would be better if the children can earn a book for a weekend by: 1) helping someone in their grade room, 2) helping the teacher, like passing out stuff to the other students, 3) cleaning up tables or desks. When something is given for free, some people and kids just don’t care. If they earn it, they will take so much better care of it. After so many weeks, then they earn the right to take home two books, etc. JEAN MILLER Jamestown

Bill could harm N.C. industry

Town Council Mayor Keith Volz, 601 O’Neill Drive, Jamestown 27282; 887-2733 Frank Gray, 110 Mamie Lane, Jamestown 27282; 454-2039


t’s likely no coincidence that the winemaking industry in North Carolina has grown significantly in the last several years since a 2005 U.S. Supreme Court ruling struck down trade barriers some states across the country had enacted. That high court ruling allowed members of the burgeoning N.C. industry to market their wines via the Internet directly to consumers all across the nation without having to navigate a morass of state laws, most of which were enacted by states in an attempt to restrict competition from outside their own jurisdictions. Now, for many of the nearly 100 Tarheel State wineries – nearly all small, family-owned businesses – interstate Internet sales make up important segments of their businesses. Without those direct-to-the customer sales, some vineyard operators say, the financial viability of their operations would be in jeopardy. And fears are rising among North Carolina winemakers that a proposed federal law could harm their ability to carry on interstate trade via the Internet. N.C. winemakers are afraid that if H.R. 5034 passes and states get authority to regulate interstate sales of wine, they would enact regulations banning direct sales via the Internet. States then would require producers to market their wines through a wholesale marketing system that could limit or maybe even eliminate their ability to access markets in other states. However, U.S. Rep. Howard Coble, R6th, of Greensboro doesn’t see it that way. Coble is a primary co-sponsor of H.R. 5034. Ranking member of a House subcommittee that is reviewing the legislation, Coble says the bill is about giving to individual states the control of alcohol sales to people within their borders and about efforts to make sure only adults purchase alcohol. Coble stands on reasonable philosophical ground there, although there’s no overwhelming evidence to support underage online purchases concerns. But the fears of N.C. winemakers are real. Previously, states erected barriers to N.C. wines for competitive reasons, and that could happen again. Requiring that wholesalers be part of the marketing system surely will increase consumer costs and impact Tarheel winemakers’ bottom lines. The potential damage to the growing N.C. winemaking industry that H.R. 5034 represents outweighs any need for it.

For conservatives discussing race, ignorance is bliss


sking a conservative pundit for advice on race is like asking an ayatollah for advice on preparing the Christmas ham. There are exceptions, yes, but by and large, this terrain is the dark side of the moon for conservatives. They don’t know it well, so they tend to go there rarely, reluctantly and seldom voluntarily. And when they do, they not infrequently make Patrick Buchanan-size jackasses of themselves. So the train wreck of a radio segment that generated unwelcome headlines for talk-show host Laura Schlessinger last week was predictable the moment she took a call from an African-American woman named “Jade.” See, Jade, inexplicably, sought Dr. Laura’s advice on what to do when her white husband’s family and friends make “racist comments” in front of her. And that’s when the train took a header into the gorge. First, there was Jade’s mention of a neighbor who can’t drop by without asking her how black people like this or black people like that. Dr. Laura said that wasn’t racist – which is arguably fair, but ignores the fact that a person gets tired of constantly being treated as an emissary from the planet Negro. Then there was Dr. Laura’s non sequitur rant about how blacks voted for Barack Obama “without giving much thought” – the brainless, easily swayed black voter being a fiction beloved by many conservatives, and never mind that it was Queen of Soul Hillary Clinton who had the black vote sewn up and Obama who was forced to earn it. There is much more, but we are running out of page and still haven’t gotten to the part that made headlines and forced Dr. Laura into an apology the next day. Jade asked, “How about the N-word?” “Black guys use it all the time,” snapped Dr. Laura. “Turn on HBO, listen to a black comic and all you hear is nigger, nigger, nigger.” When Jade challenged her casual use of that word, Schlessinger doubled down. She repeated her N-word trilogy and at one point told Jade, “I think you have too much sensitivity ...” Oh, my stars and garters. There is, should it need saying, a big hole in

Dr. Laura’s reasoning. Comics do all sorts of obnoxious things. They call women by a synonym for female dogs. They talk about menstruation, masturbation, nose-picking, gas-passing and other subjects generally avoided in polite company. OPINION Does Schlessinger really think “comedians” should be Leonard our standard on matters of Pitts decorum? Does she really think ■■■ comedians’ – or for that matter, rappers’ and street kids’ – choice of language justifies her use of a noxious epithet loathed by the vast majority of the 38 million people against whom it is routinely hurled? Or that calling her on that is evidence of hypersensitivity? Too bad I already used that stars and garters line. It would go nicely here. Suffice it to say, I bet you Dr. Laura never thought about it like that. I bet you she never thought about it at all. And therein lies the problem – not simply for her, but for conservatives in general who seek to contribute to a constructive racial dialogue. See, I’d argue the most offensive thing about Schlessinger’s gaffe wasn’t her use of the N-word, but the air of smug entitlement with which she did so. Conversing with a woman who lives a reality about which she can only theorize, Dr. Laura brushed away Jade’s every effort to dissent or explain. She was not there to engage. She already knew all she needed to. One finds that often when conservative pundits talk race. They seem trapped within their own baseless narratives, loath to listen to, much less credit, anything that contradicts what they chose long ago to believe. Small wonder they seldom contribute anything of value to the discussion. They don’t know what they don’t know. And they are unwilling to learn.

Group aims to improve public safety, eliminate animal cruelty BY TERRI GATES


would like to introduce Triad Laws for Paws (TLP), formed to join local law enforcement, as well as city and county government, to create stricter ordinances and more stringent enforcement of existing ordinances regarding animal neglect/cruelty. TLP is under the umbrella of the Humane Society of the Piedmont. Most people may have heard of Susie’s Law, which was recently signed by Gov. Beverly Perdue. The new law makes animal neglect/cruelty a Class F felony, which carries active jail time to those convicted of felony animal cruelty. This was a very important and needed step in the right direction, but there are many more steps needed. Animal abuse/neglect is antisocial behavior that directly correlates to domestic violence and other crimes as documented by many studies around the country. As a property manager, I have seen firsthand that animal neglect/cruelty is a red flag to other problems in the household. This can range from spousal battery to drug activity to neglect or even abuse of children. This is happening in all neighborhoods, and we want to make our local government officials aware of how extensive the problem is in order to hopefully prevent



some of the other crimes associated with animal neglect/cruelty. Additionally, we have homeowners in our communities who are not able to enjoy sitting outside their homes due to the stench from animals not being properly kept in their surrounding neighbors’ yards. It is not only the stench that keep residents inside; we have residents in our communities who live next door to dogs that are tethered

Susie’s Law was an important, needed step, but many more steps are needed. (tied, chained) 24/7 who get loose and have the neighbors fearful for their safety. Triad Laws for Paws is currently working with High Point City Council Public Safety Committee, as well as Guilford County to amend current ordinances as well as encourage stricter enforcement of ordinances already on the books. We are a group that knows this is a multifaceted problem and again, we are working with local government and law enforcement to address

issues using sources of wisdom including what other N.C. counties have done to address animal issues. Right now, we need public input. Our goal is to make public officials aware of how extensive these issues are right in our own backyards. We need citizens who have been the victim or witness to the following to please e-mail us at 1. If you have been a victim of a vicious animal attack or witnessed one. 2. If you or your neighbors cannot enjoy relaxing outside due to stench or fear of the neighbors’ dogs. 3. If you have a neighbor who chains a dog 24/7 and does not provide adequate food, water or shelter. 4. If you have neighbors who are breeding dogs known for aggression to sell. 5. If you know or suspect animals are being bred by a neighbor that is not properly caring for them. Triad Laws for Paws believes in the power of the people to make a difference. We are a very diverse group or people who have come together to work diligently at making a difference in our local communities regarding the safety of the citizens and enforcing stricter ordinances regarding animal neglect/ cruelty.

use their school ID card as debit cards at local retailers. “If you want to see the impact, go sit at Wal-mart, Target or another retailer on opening day,” OPINION Scarborough suggests, indicating Elijah the school’s impact Lovejoy on local retail, not ■■■ to mention parents, grandparents and friends who fill local hotels. On the academic side, change is in the air as well. “The academic program tends to get overlooked because of all the other nifty stuff we’re doing,” said Dudley, pointing to a dramatically revamped curriculum taking affect this year. Classes will now be four credit hours instead of three, allowing more time for hands-on research and application. A freshmen seminar will challenge students in a subject of their choice. A new core curriculum will allow greater flexibility for students importing credit hours from high school, and an optional study-abroad or at home May Experience will join the academic line-up. Looking to the future, Dudley sees managing growth as the biggest challenge, though a positive one. “Where are you going to teach them? Where are you going to feed them? Where are you going to sleep them?” On average, 70 prospective students daily now visit High Point University. 2010 freshmen enrollment stands at 1,220 students, a 230 percent increase since 2005 when freshmen enrollment stood at 370. Scarborough sums up the sentiment reflectively, “Something special is happening here. We’ve got to contribute our ideas to keep it going.” Congratulations High Point University on your 87th opening convocation, and congratulations High Point on $100,000 well spent on the northeast corner of the intermediate loop.

Attention City Council candidates

Is your hearing current?

n May of 1921, the city of High Point pledged 60 acres and $100,000 to outbid Greensboro and Burlington for a proposed Methodist School of higher education. Classes started three years later on Sept. 14, 1924. On Sept. 17, 1962, Wilbur Smith and Associates of Columbia, S.C., presented its “Major Street and Thoroughfare Plan” at city hall. High Point’s city council commissioned the plan to address growing traffic congestion. Smith’s plan recommended three concentric roadways radiating out from downtown. The downtown “Hub” was made of Lindsay, Hamilton and Green. Moving outward, a proposed “Intermediate Loop” consisted of present-day Westchester, Eastchester, College and Market Center. And last, an “East-West Belt” was conceived where today’s 311 Bypass stands, eventually to be joined with a corresponding “West Belt” through Davidson County. Engineers estimated the cost of this 18-year project at $35 million. This Sunday, on the northeast corner of High Point’s Intermediate Loop, High Point University will celebrate its 87th Opening Convocation. Since its founding, enrollment has risen from 122 primarily North Carolina Methodist students in 1924 to 4,200 graduate and undergraduate students from 46 states and 51 countries in 2010. Likewise, the school’s geographic footprint has increased from the initial 60 acres to its current 210 and growing. In the midst of all this growth, Don Scarborough, vice president for community relations, and Chris Dudley, vice president for administration, are keen to point out that the school is High Point’s university. The city put up the initial money to recruit the school, and university President Nido Qubein strongly reaffirmed a commitment to High Point on becoming president in 2005. Scarborough highlights that in the last year alone, university students and staff contributed over 40,000 volunteer hours to High Point nonprofits. Over 40 local retailers are part of the university’s Passport Card program, allowing students to

Egg recall tied to salmonella grows to 380 million ATLANTA (AP) – Hundreds of people have been sickened in a salmonella outbreak linked to eggs in three states and possibly more, and health officials on Wednesday dramatically expanded a recall to 380 million eggs. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is working with state health departments to investigate the illnesses. No deaths have been reported, said Dr. Christopher Braden, a CDC epidemiologist

involved in the investigation. Initially, 228 million eggs were recalled but that number was increased to the equivalent of nearly 32 million dozen-egg cartons. Minnesota, a state with some of the best food-borne illness investigators in the country, has tied at least seven salmonella illnesses to the eggs. Other states have seen a jump in reports of the type of salmonella. For example, California has

reported 266 illnesses since June and believes many are related to the eggs. Colorado saw 28 cases in June and July, about four times the usual number. Spikes or clusters of suspicious cases have also been reported in Arizona, Nevada, Illinois, Texas and Wisconsin. Salmonella is the most common bacterial form of food poisoning. And the strain involved in the outbreak is the most common strain of salmonella.

Poll: BP image recovering from spill, but still low

WASHINGTON (AP) – BP’s image, which took an ugly beating after the Gulf oil spill, is recovering since the company capped the well, though the oil giant’s approval level is still anything but robust. A majority of Americans still aren’t convinced it is safe to eat seafood from parts of the Gulf or swim in its waters, a new AP poll shows. Politically, President Barack Obama’s rating on handling the nation’s worst oil spill has nudged up to about 50 percent, the poll indicated. Fewer people now think the spill is a major national issue, and more support increased drilling in U.S.

coastal waters than oppose it. Safety remains a worry. “Normally, I would go to the casinos and eat seafood, but now I’m going to be kind of skeptical of eating,� said Samuel Washington, 44, who lives in Norfolk, Va., but also owns a home in Ocean Springs, Miss. “My biggest concern is whether or not they are really testing all the affected areas.� Approval for Obama’s handling of the mess has risen from 45 percent in June, while BP’s marks have more than doubled – from 15 percent to a still lackluster 33 percent. Some 66 percent of

Jurors were close to convicting Blagojevich

CHICAGO (AP) – “Blago on Trial, The Sequel� promises to be as circuslike and nearly as expensive as the first trial of the former Illinois governor. And in a state with a huge budget deficit, some people would prefer not to see it at all. But the next round could also look different if prosecutors adjust their strategy after listening to jurors who deadlocked on all but one charge against Rod Blagojevich. And despite their defiance after the verdict, defense attorneys could offer a few surprises too – if they are still on the job. Could prosecutors decide to call witnesses such as White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel? Could the defense finally put Blagojevich on the stand? Asked the latter question, Blagojevich attor-

ney Sheldon Sorosky said, “The answer to that is, absolutely yes. It doesn’t mean he will. But he could.� Prosecutors plan to retry Blagojevich on charges that include allegations he tried to sell President Barack Obama’s old senate seat. Meanwhile, they were close. After three weeks of respectful but increasingly tense deliberations, 11 jurors were ready to convict Rod Blagojevich of what prosecutors called a “political corruption crime spree� that would have sent yet another former Illinois governor to prison. Not close enough. On vote after vote, the jury kept coming up one juror short – a lone holdout who wouldn’t budge and would agree only that Blagojevich lied to the FBI.


those surveyed continue to disapprove of BP’s performance, down from a whopping 83 percent in June. More than half, 54 percent, said they weren’t confident that it is safe yet to eat seafood from the spill areas, and 55 percent said they weren’t confident that the beaches in the affected areas were safe for swimming. Still, just 60 percent of those surveyed called the spill an important issue now, down from 87 percent in June. Only 21 percent said it would affect them and their families a great deal or a lot in the next year, down from 40 percent in June.

From South to East





Billy Hunt, former principal at South Davidson High School, stands in the courtyard of East Davidson High School. He replaces Cathi Smith, who recently retired.

THOMASVILLE – Billy Hunt doesn’t plan on making any major changes at East Davidson High, but he plans to continue the same strategies that made South Davidson High successful under his leadership. Hunt, who has 20 years of experience in education, was named by the Davidson County Board of Education in June as the principal of East Davidson, replacing Cathi Smith, who retired after 11 years as principal of the school and 34 years in education. Hunt had been principal of South Davidson High for two years and assistant principal for the school for four-and-a-half years. “I am very excited to be here,” Hunt said. “The community is a great community. I’m very familiar with the community. The staff is an excellent staff. I came from an excellent staff at South Davidson as well. I had been there for seven years. It was just time to move on. I was still very happy there, but it was just time.” At South Davidson, Hunt helped increase the school’s ABC scores by 21 points last year. South Davidson also went from having 56 dropouts in the 2007-08 school year to 28 dropouts in 2008-09 and then 14 dropouts for 2009-10. “My biggest part of it was coordinating it and supporting the teachers,” Hunt said of South Davidson’s success. “It will be the same way here. It’s the teachers putting in the extra work and the extra effort and the kids putting it in.” Hunt moves from leading a staff of about 35 teachers and 480 kids to a staff of about 60 and 1,000 students. He said the transition to a bigger school has been smooth because of the job that Smith did as principal. “The biggest thing is that I don’t want the students and staff to worry there is going to be a lot of major changes because there is not,” he said. “Why change a lot of the things that have been working so well here

under Mrs. Smith? That’s another reason it has been a smooth transition.” With the move to East Davidson, Hunt says his overall goals for students haven’t changed. “My goal anywhere I am at is student success, improving student achievement no matter where you go,” he said. “The No. 1 goal is student achievement and student success in preparing them for the 21st century because things are changing out there. Kids just don’t have a chance if they don’t have a high school diploma and go to college, even if it’s a two-year degree at a community college. That’s a big deal nowadays.” Hunt got his start in education 1989 at Lexington Senior High School, where he served in various roles as a business teacher, chairman of the business department, athletic director, baseball coach and head football coach. He was at Lexington Senior High School for about 13 years before moving to South Davidson.

Commissioners explore options for new school Elsewhere...


Board OKs design. 1A


DAVIDSON COUNTY – Davidson County commissioners say they will explore all options to fund the construction of a middle school in the northern part of the county. “It’s my belief that we should, if funds are available, move forward with this project because we are very crowded up there,” said Max Walser, chairman of the Davidson County Board of Commissioners. “Construction


Artist rendering shows front of new middle school. costs are low now. The last bids on elementary and middle schools that I know about were about $130 a square foot, which is very reasonable. “Construction people are hungry. They are out of work. Bids are good. Materials have not gone up significantly, so it’s the right time. The question is, what will our com-

missioners be willing to do?” Commissioner Don Truell said the board should look at all options, but wants to prevent a hike in the property tax rate. He said commissioners have done more for the school systems during his tenure than any other set of commissioners he knows

of in Davidson County. “I don’t think we are going to have to raise the property tax rates,” Truell said. “I hope we don’t. We haven’t yet, but we will look at what we have got left over in our bond moneys. We will look at our general fund. We will look at some of our undesignated funds that we have got and we will look at some more bonds if we have to, I’m sure, for this project.” Walser agreed that commissioners have several options for funding the construction. “There are a lot of different options to the commissioners,” he said. “First of all, they got to decide if they

want to move forward. If we can show that there wouldn’t be any significant tax increase at all or any tax increase, I think commissioners would do it.” Walser said the proposed middle school was to be funded in the $78 million bond referendum approved by Davidson County voters in 2005. He said the bond money has run out because of construction that has been funded for other school projects. Walser said he anticipates discussion among commissioners about the proposed school to take place in September or October. | 888-3657

Tourism sales continue to stabilize BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – Tourism in High Point continued its slow, modest climb for the third consecutive month, according to the High Point Convention and Visitor’s Bureau. The HPCVB collected $101,319 in May from the city’s hotel room tax. That’s a 1 percent, or $1,383, increase from last year. “I’m always happy to report increases to you again,” said treasurer Chris Greene at the CVB’s regular meeting on Wednesday. Its first year-to-year sales in-

crease in more than a year was reported at the June meeting. The organization, funded by the hotel room tax, has faced significant losses in revenue in a down economy but has employed efforts to bring more trade shows and conventions to the city to fuel tourism. “In the industry, things are looking better,” said sales manager Marva Wells. “They are starting to look really good.” Wells said the Lucas Oil Oak Hollow Drag Boat Races were a success for the city in July, and she is in talks with organizers regarding a commitment for

next year’s show. Other sporting events, such as the 2010 Furniture City Gridiron Classic, in which the Winston-Salem State Rams will play the Virginia Union Panthers at A.J. Simeon Stadium Aug. 2728, and the Piedmont Soccer Alliance Furniture City Classic Tournament, set for Aug. 27-29, are expected to drive tourism this month. “These sporting events and youth sports are really huge (in the industry),” she said. High Point University’s freshman orientation also is expected to draw 4,000 people


to the city this weekend. Melody Burnett, HPCVB executive administrator, announced that the organization’s annual Arts and Tourism Grants program will award $174,750 to selected applicants this year. The program doles out funds to nonprofits in the city that hold events that boost tourism or celebrate the arts. Twenty-nine applications were received for the program this year, totaling $324,000 in requests. The recipients will be named in September. | 888-3617

North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper (right) and State Bureau of Investigation director Greg McLeod listen as independent analyst Chris Swecker discusses the results of an outside review of past serology practices at the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation Laboratory during a press conference in Raleigh.

Agent from NC’s crime lab placed on paid leave RALEIGH (AP) – A North Carolina law enforcement agent has been taken off the job after a scathing report found his work among the worst done on scores of flawed criminal cases. The new director of the State Bureau of Investigation said Wednesday that Duane Deaver is on investigatory placement, meaning he cannot work but gets paid while an investigation continues. An outside review of the blood analysis unit at the SBI crime lab said Deaver overstated or falsely reported blood test results in five cases. Deaver’s testimony about SBI policies on omitting test results from lab reports led to the outside review.

Deaver didn’t return a message left at his office phone earlier Wednesday, and no one came to the door of his home Wednesday afternoon. Analysts at North Carolina’s crime lab omitted, overstated or falsely reported blood evidence in dozens of cases, including three that ended in executions and another where two men were imprisoned for murdering Michael Jordan’s father, according to the review released Wednesday. The governmentordered inquest by two former FBI officials found that agents of the State Bureau of Investigation repeatedly aided prosecutors in obtaining convictions over a 16-year period, mostly by

misrepresenting blood evidence and keeping critical notes from defense attorneys. The review of blood evidence in cases from 1987 to 2003 by two former assistant directors of the Federal Bureau of Investigation calls for a thorough examination of 190 criminal cases, stating information that could have helped defendants was sometimes misrepresented or withheld. “It impacted the decisions that were made – it could have,” report author Chris Swecker said Wednesday. “Let me step back and make sure you understand: It could have resulted in situations where information that was material and favorable to the defendant was not disclosed.”

Marion hosts N.C. State Bluegrass Festival MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

MARION – Even though the festival started Wednesday, folks were showing up for it on Tuesday. The 36th Annual North Carolina State Bluegrass Festival will be held through Saturday at Tom Johnson Camping Center’s Rally Park. It is one of the largest bluegrass festivals in the country and for the first time it is being held in McDowell County. As of Tuesday afternoon, about 100 motor homes have rolled into the rally park for this event and about 400 more were expected to show up by Wednesday. It is expected to draw thousands of bluegrass fans to McDowell County. Adams and Anderson, LLC of Dahlonega, Ga. is the company that is promoting and holding the festival. Promoters Nor-

Ballantine files for bankruptcy WILMINGTON (AP) – A former North Carolina state senator and 2004 gubernatorial candidate says he filed for bankruptcy because, like many, he’s a victim of the real estate bust. Patrick Ballantine of Wilmington filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in late June. Court records show listed assets of $820,000 and liabilities of more than $6 million. The StarNews of Wilmington says more than $3 million in debts are linked to investments in a development at Ocean Isle Beach. Ballantine said this week he got into the trash hauling business after the real estate market went south.

man Adams and Tony Anderson hold seven bluegrass festivals a year, from Virginia down to Florida. For 36 years, they have worked full-time putting on bluegrass festivals throughout the Southeast. While getting the place ready Tuesday afternoon, Adams said McDowell County and Tom Johnson Rally Park has turned out to be an excellent place for this event. “We’ve had the best response from the locals I’ve ever seen,” he said. On Tuesday afternoon, Adams and Anderson were busy taking tickets for the early arrivals and making sure everything was ready at the rally park and its pavilion. “So far, everything is smooth,” said Anderson. Adams started putting bluegrass festivals on in the early 1970s and Anderson joined him later in the work. Many don’t realize what all it takes to hold

events of this size. “It’s a lot of hard work,” said Adams. “It’s a full-time job year-round,” said Anderson. “Booking the talent, bringing up everything involved, the sound and the lighting and the advertisement. Everything from the talent to the Porta-Johns, we do.” However, it is unlikely that Adams and Anderson will need portable toilets for this festival because of the facilities already available at the rally park. “This is a first class facility here,” said Anderson. “The owners and the staff are very accommodating.” In addition to the acts, Adams and Anderson have contracts for about 30 vendors. At their request, Tom Johnson Camping Center made modifications to the stage at the pavilion in order to better accommodate the bluegrass groups that will play there.

Deacon killed while working near his church MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

MORGANTON – A deacon of a local Baptist church died Tuesday on church property when a trailer crushed him. Morganton Department of Public Safety officials said Joe Ingram, 67, of 1442 Pheasant Run Court, died at the scene. Catawba Valley Baptist Church Pastor Mike Odom found the man underneath a hook-up trailer around 11 a.m. on a hillside at 117 Valley View St., within sight of

the church. Burke County Emergency Medical Services Lt. Jason Black said it was unclear how the man, whose name has not been released, ended up under the hook-up trailer. Members of the church had spoken to the man about an hour before he was found, Black said. The man was dead when emergency responders arrived on the scene, Black said. The trailer was approximately 40 feet downhill from the rear end of a red pick up truck.

It had been filled with wood and yard debris, Black said. The man was the chairman of the deacon committee at Catawba Valley, fellow deacon Ralph Ballew said. The man was also a Sunday school teacher. “It’s going to be a terrible loss for the church and the people,� Ballew said. Ballew said a missionary family is planning to move Friday into the residence and that’s why the man was cleaning the property.

Man’s need for ‘me time’ casts a pall on ‘us time’


ear Abby: I have been dating “Kate� for a year. She’s caring and down-toearth. We have so much in common, and time goes by quickly when we’re together. That’s why, when a new job brought Kate closer to my place, I told her she could stay with me, so her commute would be less stressful while she gets used to the job and learns her way around. I enjoy making us dinner, since I get home two hours before she does. After being single and living alone for six years, I want a relationship. Maybe in the future I’ll want her to move in with me. We spend weeknights together and go out as a couple every weekend. But I also like “my time� and “my night out.� I am a part-time publicist for an entertainer and try to keep up with the local music and club scene. Two nights out alone during the month work for me. I share the details with Kate – including the crazy things I see “singles� do when I’m out. I have explained to her how spending these nights on my own makes me appreciate her more when I return. But I feel a distinct “chill� from her when my night arrives. I have no problem with Kate doing a “girls’ night out� on those evenings. Am I wrong to want alone time? Am I not committed enough to this relationship? – Reasonable Guy in Southern

California Dear Reasonable: It’s not wrong to want some time ADVICE independent Dear of Kate, Abby particu■■■ larly since it relates to your business. Her cool reaction may be related to her insecurities with your relationship, as well as the “crazy things� you’re describing when you get home. It may have been a mistake to invite Kate to stay with you without a deadline after which you expect her to find her own place. Under the circumstances, she may think your relationship has progressed further than it really has. Dear Abby: I cannot think of anyone else to turn to. I attend church, but don’t know a priest well enough to confide in him. I have been married 45 years. My wife and I have a very good sex life. My problem is, over the past year my curiosity has increased about what it would be like to be with another man. I don’t have anyone in mind. I try not to think about it, but the idea excites me. I enjoy looking at attractive women, but often find myself wanting to give the other a try. Please help me find an answer before I try something stupid. Abby,

I hope you can offer me some advice in your column. – Anonymous in Daytona Beach Dear Anonymous: Everyone has sexual fantasies, and although yours have recently been homosexual fantasies, it does not necessarily mean that you would enjoy an encounter with another man. Because you say you have a “very good sex life� with your wife, you may have some bisexual leanings. However, 45 years ago you promised at the altar to be faithful to your wife. So I’ll offer the same advice I would have given to Adam if he had written me back then: Don’t take a bite of that apple because it could get you evicted from Eden. Dear Abby: What do you say to people when you have a child in jail and they don’t know? Should you lie and say everything is fine? – East Coast Mom Dear Mom: It depends upon how well you know the people and how much personal information you’re comfortable revealing about your family. But I don’t think you should lie because that kind of news has a way of traveling. DEAR ABBY is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

KNIGHTDALE – It started as a routine stop to help a disabled tractortrailer Tuesday morning on the Smithfield Road exit off U.S. 64. But when Brandon Jenkins, a Wake master deputy, arrived to help, about 50,000 honeybees were swarming the stalled vehicle. “About 60 or so boxes of bees had fallen off the truck,� said sheriff’s spokeswoman Phyllis Stephens. Driver Kenneth Marshall was en route from Dobson to Rocky Mount, so Jenkins contacted a Rocky Mount tow service. The tow truck driver and Jenkins helped Marshall put the boxes back onto the

truck while the bees continued to swarm. “They were the Italian variety,� Stephens said. “They are not aggressive and not dangerous. But there was some concern because it was close to a neighborhood.� By the time Jenkins got back into his cruiser and shut the door of his patrol car, it was covered in the insects. Outnumbered 50,000 to one, Jenkins called 911 and waited. The 911 dispatcher phoned the state Department of Agriculture, which sent out Jennifer Keller from N.C. State University. Charles Heatherly, past president of the N.C. Beekeepers Association, who lives nearby, also arrived to help the bee-trapped deputy.

Annual physical exam not like it used to be


ear Dr. Donohue: I am a healthy, 68-year-old male. I have always had a yearly checkup. This always included blood work, urinalysis, blood stool test, listening to my heart, sometimes an EKG, a digital prostate check and a general touch and visual exam of my whole body. I have recently moved. My new doctor just does blood tests and goes over the results with me. I don’t even take off my shirt. He says the rest of the exam is just a waste of time. What should people expect in a routine physical? – W.V.



The standard yearly physical exam isn’t what it used to be. The United States Services Task Force, a committee of respected doctors who set policy for such things, issued new directions on what a physical exam should comprise. The exam should be adapted to the patient’s age, family history of illnesses, gender-specific conditions and an exploration of whatever symptoms the patient has. Blood pressure, weight and listening to the heart and lungs, while not demanded every year in an otherwise healthy person, don’t take long and merit a yearly check. If a person doesn’t have an eye doctor, then the examining physician should check for glaucoma, cataracts and macular degeneration. Some blood tests ought to be a yearly affair: cholesterol, triglycerides, hemoglobin A1c (diabetes check) and a stool test for blood.














A yearly PSA test is a matter of debate. Women need to have mammograms and PAP HEALTH smears done in Dr. Paul accordance Donohue with of■■■ ficial directions. At age 50, people need a colonoscopy. An ultrasound check of the abdomen for aortic aneurysm is a suggestion for those in their mid-to-late 60s who smoked. The rest of the exam is directed to a patient’s specific complaints. The doctor should make sure people have had their vaccines: yearly flu, pneumonia vaccine, tetanus booster (every 10 years) and the shingles vaccine for older patients. The stethoscope has not been thrown out. Dear Dr. Donohue: Will you comment on fish oil, specifically Lovaza, for control of cholesterol and triglycerides? My doctor is reluctant to change my medications from Lipitor and Tricor to Lovaza. I am concerned that my present meds could damage my liver and muscles. – K.P. Statins – your Lipitor (atorvastatin) – are probably the most powerful and popular drugs for lowering cholesterol. Tricor (fenofibrate) works in a different manner to lower cholesterol and triglycerides. Some

caution has to be used in combining the two, because Tricor can raise the risk of muscle damage coming from Lipitor. Lovaza is a prescription formulation of omega-3 fatty acids – the material in fish that lowers cholesterol, increases HDL cholesterol (good cholesterol) and lowers triglycerides. Whether it achieves the same results as statin drugs isn’t clearly answered. It does work, and it is safe. Why not strike a bargain with your doctor? Ask to try it for two months. Have your cholesterol and triglycerides checked before and at the end of the two-month trial. Then you and the doctor can determine if Lovaza alone controls your cholesterol/triglyceride problem.

Dear Dr. Donohue: I carry medicines in my handbag: Singulair, prednisone, Ventolin and occasionally eyedrops. Does carrying a cell phone in the handbag in close proximity to the medications affect them in any way? Also, can a cell phone affect food or water if placed together, for example, in a tote bag? – G.G. Cell phones are not emitting any dangerous radiations in the situations you describe.

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

TV audiences getting older

Advertisers recognize that age demographic of TV watchers has changed DAVID BAUDER AP TELEVISION WRITER


EW YORK – For years, executives at ABC, Fox and NBC essentially stopped caring about television viewers once they had reached 50 years old. You don’t hear that much anymore. The median age for viewers at those networks and CBS is now 51. The broadcasters’ audience has aged at twice the rate of the general population during the past two decades, according to a new report. It’s a quiet trend with a real impact on the way they do business. “It should be a concern, but it doesn’t seem to be a concern at the moment,” said Steve Sternberg, who wrote the report for Baseline Inc., an information source for the film and TV industries that is owned by The New York Times Co. “You don’t want to have CBS, ABC and NBC all having median ages in their mid-50s.” The risk in having a rapidly aging audience is the networks becoming less relevant to advertisers, the backbone of their business. Increasingly, that’s a way of thinking that itself is getting old. Sternberg first started studying median age data using Nielsen Co. statistics in 1991 when he was at the Bozell ad agency. At the time, ABC’s median age – the point at which half

its audience was younger and half older – was 37. NBC’s was 42 and Fox’s was 29. CBS, which has traditionally had the oldest audience, was 45. For years, these networks (except for CBS) have sold advertising based on how many people were watching in the 18-to-49-year-old demographic. Both CBS (55) and ABC (51) had median ages above that range last season, according to the report. NBC’s median age was 49 and Fox’s was 44. Much of the aging isn’t unique

of something newer and hipper, but are more reluctant now to get rid of something that’s showing success. Most new shows fail, so the financial risk is too great if it isn’t really necessary. With the show aging and star Charlie Sheen in legal trouble, “Two and a Half Men” might have been a ripe candidate for cancellation in another era. Instead, CBS made Sheen the highest paid comedy actor on TV and kept the sitcom on the air. The show’s median age is 50. “Dancing With the Stars,” with

The broadcasters’ audience has aged at twice the rate of the general population during the past two decades. According to new report to TV: The median age for the American population as a whole increased from 33 in 1990 to 38 last year, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. “You hear people saying, ‘Your audiences are older now and you don’t have the young people you used to have in the 1980s,’ ” said David Poltrack, chief research executive at CBS. “I say, ‘Yeah, the U.S. auto companies aren’t controlling 80 percent of the market anymore, either.’ ” Economics play a part in the aging audience. A generation ago, the networks were more quick to cast off shows in favor

a median audience age of 60, is the most popular series on ABC’s schedule. Its youngest-skewing show, “Lost,” just went off the air. Shows such as “24” and “House” broadened Fox’s audience beyond its youth-oriented roots. The median age of the “American Idol” audience has jumped from 36 to 44 over the past seven seasons, the report said. Young people who left when “Friends” went off the air are the most conspicuous of all the viewers who fled NBC. A young audience has always been the holy grail for networks,

but that’s changing, said Alan Wurtzel, research chief at NBC. Not only are more older viewers available, advertisers are starting to recognize that they spend money and are receptive to their messages. “If you try to young down your median age, you’re going to be going against gravity,” he said. There’s an effort with NBC’s new fall schedule to appeal to a broader age group than was evident in the recent past, he said. The “Law & Order” Los Angeles spinoff and the legal series “Outlaw,” with Jimmy Smits, both procedural dramas that wrap up a story each week, are two examples, he said. There were five such procedurals on broadcast network schedules in 1999. Last season, there were 20, Sternberg said. Networks are also showing less comedy, a format that tends to skew young. “The networks need to start thinking about how they can get a little younger,” Sternberg said. “The only way to do that is through programming. There’s no law that says they can’t get any younger.” Advertisers looking for younger potential customers have more options, including the Internet and smaller cable networks. MTV (median age 23), Comedy Central (31), E! Entertainment (34), FX (38) and Bravo (42) are among the networks that have siphoned younger viewers away from broadcasters.

Sarah Blasko’s smoky vocals have garnered her praise from her native Australia, and she’s using them to enchant U.S. audiences with her third album, “As Day Follows Night.” Blasko’s wistful narrative of love’s aftermath begins in the stage that dawns just as the sobbing stops and the analysis starts. “Down On Love” is a song about a self-guided escape from the dumps of an aching heart. The ambling piano is a whimsical complement to the song’s dreamy up-anddown melody. A rich array of instruments is a boon to the haunting collection of songs, which feature tinkling hi-hat, no dearth of piano, and what sounds like a howling musical saw on the dusty “All I Want.” “I don’t want another partner, so don’t try and break the spell/ I can’t even understand me, so don’t think that you can help/ When I say things and see things, there’s no way on earth to tell/ what I want/ what I want/ what I want/ Cuz I don’t even know myself,” she sings. The stern “No Turning Back” gives way to the heated “Lost & Defeated.” The subtle shifts in emotion in some cases make one track sound indistinct from another, but Blasko’s honest lyrics make the disc worth a listen. Check Out This Track: Aside from having an utterly enchanting voice, Blasko is fearless in her vulnerability. She acknowledges the pain of letting go of love against her own wishes on “I Never Knew,” making her all the more endearing.








“I asked Minnie if she realized she could have won the first spade with the jack,” the Cynic said. “If West’s seven was fourthhighest, she had to hold the queen; she’d have led the ten from 10-9-8-7-x.” “Minnie thought her jack was the king,” I said. “By taking the ace and ‘cashing’ the king, she was showing a doubleton.” “That’s what she said when she apologized for her ‘misplay,’ ” Cy muttered. “But behind those bifocals, I saw a twinkle in her eye.”

“Have you noticed,” I asked Cy the Cynic, “how many of the goofy plays Minnie and her glasses make are technically correct?” “She’s not fooling me,” Cy growled. “She’s an expert disguised as a little old lady.” Minnie Bottoms wears old bifocals that make her mix up kings and jacks, often to her opponents’ chagrin.

Capsule reviews GO!SEE!DO! of films playing at local theaters “Animal Kingdom” – We know we’re in for a different kind of family values right off the top, as we watch a teenager sitting next to his passed-out mother on the couch while some inane game show blares on the television in the background. It’s only when the paramedics arrive at their shabby apartment that we realize she’s dead from a heroin overdose, and yet the boy’s expression remains stoic throughout. This development will force Joshua “J’’ Cody (James Frecheville) into a life with the relatives he never really knew – relatives his mother tried to keep him away from because they were even more screwed up than she was. Now, this 17-yearold must find his place among them, even though he’s clearly in over his head from the start. Watching this small-time Melbourne crime family unravel under the weight of their overconfidence is riveting, as Australian writer-director David Michod takes his time methodically detailing their self-destruction. The combination of steady pacing, intimate cinematography and startling performances will leave you feeling tense throughout “Animal Kingdom” and probably for a while afterward. R for violence, drug content and pervasive language. 112 minutes. Three and a half stars out of four. – Christy Lemire, AP Movie Critic

“Eat Pray Love” – This does exactly what it should to satisfy its core audience: It provides a gorgeous escape, exquisitely photographed and full of female wish fulfillment. Yet it also offers sufficient emotional heft and self-discovery that it’ll make people feel as if they’ve actually learned something and, perhaps, emerged as better people solely through osmosis. It’s easy to see why Elizabeth Gilbert’s memoir became an international phenomenon, even without help from Oprah. Everyone’s looking for something – for answers, for their true and higher purpose – and Gilbert had the fortitude (and the wherewithal) to take off alone on a journey around the world to find herself after her divorce. Having Julia Roberts star as Liz Gilbert in the film version of the best-seller, in theory, only makes it more appealing to an even wider audience. Roberts is radiant as ever, and director and co-writer Ryan Murphy’s adaptation allows her to show off her full range with plenty of hardcore hanky moments. It’s overlong and it wraps up with the kind of romantic comedy cliches that, for the most part, were absent from the first two-thirds. PG-13 for brief strong language, some sexual references and male rear nudity. 133 minutes. Three stars out of four. – Christy Lemire, AP Movie Critic

“The Expendables” – An exercise

in nostalgia for the bygone era of muscly, macho action films, “The Expendables” is willfully out of date, like an aged hair band that can’t pack away the spandex. Sylvester Stallone, the director, co-writer and star, has summoned a who’s who of the remaining defenders of high body count, testosteronefueled action: Jason Statham, Jet Li, Steve Austin, Randy Couture, Terry Crews and Dolph Lundgren, who collectively make up a band of beefy, tattooed mercenaries. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis make cameos, too: It’s a reunion. Mickey Rourke comes along as a grizzled former warrior. The crew is hired to overthrow a corrupt general (David Zayas) and a villainous, rogue CIA agent (Eric Roberts) on the fictional island of Vilena. But the world of “The Expendables” has shockingly little connection to anything like the real world, and the military compound that will be the setting for much of the film could be that from any “Rambo” movie: cargo boxes, sand bags and watch towers, all ripe for explosions. The film is a time warp to a time before irony, to a low production value movieland where it’s still OK to fade to a close-up of a full moon. R for strong action and bloody violence throughout, and for some language. 103 minutes. One and a half stars out of four. – Jake Coyle, AP Entertainment Writer “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World” – It’ll sound like blasphemy – especially to the film’s target audience – but here goes: This is way more involving when it focuses on actual people and the palpable angst of young love rather than the video game-style duels to the death in which the title character finds himself. Director and co-writer Edgar Wright certainly creates an infectious energy in bringing Bryan Lee O’Malley’s graphic novels to the screen, with wonderfully weird little details sprinkled throughout. The video game flourishes grab you the first couple times. Often the action is split in a way that suggests the panels of a comic book coming to life, or words like “Ding Dong!” and “Blam!” appear on screen. These devices grow repetitive and tiresome, though, especially once you realize Scott really is going to have to fight every one of his new girlfriend’s seven evil exes. Michael Cera stars as the 22-year-old Toronto nerd who’s smitten upon the sight of the mysterious Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead). PG-13 for stylized violence, sexual content, language and drug references. 112 minutes. Three stars out of four. – Christy Lemire, AP Movie Critic

Netflix to stream Paramount, Lionsgate, MGM movies LOS ANGELES (AP) – Netflix Inc. will pay nearly $1 billion during the next five years for the online streaming rights to movies from Paramount, Lionsgate and MGM in a deal that could help Netflix attract even more subscribers. The agreement announced last week marks another breakthrough in Netflix’s bid to stock its online streaming library with more compelling material, so it can keep its subscription service relevant as more households order entertainment through high-speed Internet connections. The online streaming push also helps the company reduce its postage bill for mailing DVDs to its 15 million subscribers.

The deal also makes the three studios’ joint pay TV venture, Epix, immediately profitable. Analysts believe the influx of newer movies will enable Netflix to maintain its rapid growth of the past two years. Viacom Inc.’s Paramount, Metro-GoldwynMayer Inc. and Lions Gate Entertainment Corp. are selling Netflix the right to stream movies 90 days after they appear on the Epix pay channel offered through subscription TV providers such as Dish Network Corp. and Cox Communications Inc. The first crop of movies to be released in Netflix’s streaming library on Sept. 1 include “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Co-

bra,” “The Pink Panther 2” “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” and all of “The Godfather” movies. Over the next few months, “Iron Man 2” and “Star Trek” also will be available for streaming. The movies will be available for streaming on Netflix for 16 or 17 months, after which the rights will shift to basic cable channels. Netflix now has movie streaming rights that cover about 46 percent of new releases at the U.S. box office, said Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s chief content officer. That’s

comparable to what Time Warner Inc.’s HBO gets for its pay TV channel. “We are giving people more and more reason to stream instead of waiting to get their DVDs through the mail,” Sarandos said. Epix, a pay TV channel launched last October by Paramount, MGM and Lions Gate, holds subscription pay TV rights to new releases and movies from its partners’ libraries. The pay TV rights typically start about a year after a movie’s theatrical release.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Hardcore Pawnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; follows in wake of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Pawn Starsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; DAVID BAUDER AP TELEVISION WRITER



Ashley Gold, general manager of American Jewelry and Loan, stands in the family-owned pawn shop in Detroit. The Gold family stars in the new reality series, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hardcore Pawn,â&#x20AC;? on truTV. by 6.3 million viewers, the biggest audience ever for the cable network, the Nielsen Co. said. The TruTV series stars the patriarch of Detroitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sprawling American Jewelry and Loan, the nearly too-good-to-betrue named Les Gold, along with his son Seth and daughter Ashley. As suggested by the title, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hardcore Pawnâ&#x20AC;? is rougher around the edges than the History series. A customer bringing in a cannon to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;pawn starsâ&#x20AC;? would trigger an examination of its history. TruTV has a customer with a homemade cannon that Gold just wants to see blow up in his parking lot. The first â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hardcore Pawnâ&#x20AC;? also features a profanity-spewing woman who threatens Gold when

he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hand over jewelry, and the storeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s purchase of a stripperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pole. Yes, several potential buyers try it out. The show earned the same time slot as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pawn Starsâ&#x20AC;? because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a nice fit with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Operation Repo,â&#x20AC;? a series about auto repossession that airs at 9 p.m. on Mondays, Juris said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re certainly not going to change our


concerned that â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hardcore Pawnâ&#x20AC;? would dilute the success of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pawn Starsâ&#x20AC;? or cause it to burn out more quickly. She noted that shows inspired by the success of similar ideas rarely match the originals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel very confident that our series and our family has a strong foothold on this genre,â&#x20AC;? she said. Pawn shops are interesting settings for TV shows because of characters such as Gold â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a balding man who wears

a leather jacket and big gold chain in the debut episode, and curses at his security force, Juris said. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also no telling what type of things people will try to sell and the different ways they try to make deals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It makes you look at the world in a different way,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never gone in to a pawn shop. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just sort of walked by them. If you give me an opportunity to step inside without leaving my home, it really is a fascinating world.â&#x20AC;?

EW YORK â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Even in television, where good ideas are routinely imitated, the debut of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hardcore Pawnâ&#x20AC;? on TruTV Monday was enough to make you marvel. Just like one of the yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s breakout hits, Historyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pawn Stars,â&#x20AC;? itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a reality series about a family run pawn shop. Both are effectively comedies, drawing on the everyday absurdities of the workplace. Both play on the similarity of â&#x20AC;&#x153;pawnâ&#x20AC;? to â&#x20AC;&#x153;pornâ&#x20AC;? for their titles. And both are in the same time slot: 10 p.m. Mondays. Coincidence? Well, yes, according to Marc Juris, executive vice president and general manager of TruTV. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Quite honestly, we did absolutely nothing different than we would have done whether or not the other show was on the air,â&#x20AC;? Juris said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We look for shows that really hit our sweet spot and when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re right for our audience is when we put them on the air.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hardcore Pawnâ&#x20AC;? was in development for more than a year and two test episodes were aired in December, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pawn Stars,â&#x20AC;? in its third season this year, has seen its viewership jump by 38 percent over the second season. The July 5 episode was seen

schedule or our strategy because of one show on another network,â&#x20AC;? Juris said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That really isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t servicing our audience well â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that comes to us on Mondays expecting a certain kind of show.â&#x20AC;? Nancy DuBuc, president and general manager of History, said she couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t speak to whether TruTVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s choice is truly a coincidence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen the show,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no mistaking the power of the show that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve launched.â&#x20AC;? In the world of cable TV reality, successful ideas rarely stand alone: Hence the outbreak of shows about abnormally large families and highend pastry decorators. History has been on the other side, too. Discovery accused the network of playing off its own successful â&#x20AC;&#x153;Deadliest Catchâ&#x20AC;? series with Historyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ice Road Truckersâ&#x20AC;? when that debuted a few years back. Both are shows about tough jobs in forbidding climates. DuBuc said sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not

I don’t like to brag, but my fearless, peerless prep football forecast is better than money in the bank. That’s why I spent my summer vacation ponderPICKING ing ways THE to help our WINNERS federal government San Quentin erase some Quayle of that mas■■■ sive national debt. Here are a couple ideas that have yet to take flight: 2,000 Men And A Carrier – There’s no question our nation is constantly on the move. So, what better way to help keep things going than to utilize our navy’s biggest asset? That’s right. With 2,000 Men And A Carrier, you can move anywhere, anytime. Each unit comes with hand trucks, plenty of storage and deck space, squadrons of F-15s and a wide array of missiles. Furniture, vehicles, small island nations, it doesn’t matter. When it’s time to move, you’re sure to enjoy smooth sailing with 2,000 Men And A Carrier. The $1 Billion Dollar Store – How often does it happen? You find a few billion in loose change and have nowhere to spend it. Well, worry no more. At The $1 Billion Dollar Store, everything costs a billion. From trend-setting fashions to household appliances to the latest technical gadgets, it’s all here at The $1 Billion Store. And if you’re a little short on cash, don’t worry. They’ll always print more at The $1 Billion Dollar Store. Unfortunately, the feds failed to capitalize on either of my ideas. Here’s another thought, Capitol Gang. Quit spending money like there’s no tomorrow. Thankfully, tomorrow is the first day of the high school football regular season. So I’ll stick to my day job – picking prep winners with a wealth of accuracy. Here are this week’s sol-

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre signals touchdown as he returns to the practice field for the first time at training camp on Wednesday in Eden Prairie, Minn. See story on 3D.

Bowyer aims to make Chase F

ighting for the last spot in the Chase for the Championship isn’t keeping Clint Bowyer from sleeping at night. “It ain’t the end of the world,” Bowyer said Tuesday at the RCR shop. “I’m not going to die in three weeks.” Then, he added: “But it is a big deal.” It is a big deal because not qualifying for the Chase means elimination from championship SPORTS contention. That was a disappointment all of the Greer RCR teams felt across the Smith board last season. ■■■ Bowyer and all three of his Richard Childress Racing teammates felt the disappointment last season. This time, the story is much different for RCR with three race left in the regular season. Kevin Harvick leads the standings and has already clinched a berth. Jeff Burton is a solid seventh and in position to clinch a sport next week at Atlanta. Bowyer is trying to make it a trifecta. He currently sits in 12th and the last playoff spot, 35 points ahead of Mark Martin in what is primarily a two-man battle with six other drivers between 102 and 173 points behind and needing help. Being above the cut line heading into the night race at Bristol on Saturday gives Bowyer a much different feeling than he when he went into Sunday’s race at Michigan trailing Martin by 10 point or last year when he was trying to come from more than 100 points while as all of the RCR teams struggled. “It’s a big deal to our sponsors and they expect us to do it and I expect to do it,” Bowyer said. “It is a lot of pressure but we’ve got to deal with it like everyone else. When I was 10 points out, there was more pressure than being 35 to the good. When you are trying to make things up, it is a lot more worrisome. “Last year, our cars weren’t run-

ning that well. We were trying to make something happen that wasn’t there. Today we trying to make something happen and we have something do it with.” Bowyer What bothers Bowyer is that he wouldn’t be worrying about getting in the Chase if not for five finishes of 31st or worst. One of those was a season-worst 40th place at Bristol in the March thanks to an engine failure. “It’s frustrating we are even in this situation,” Bowyer said. “We should be fifth or sixth in points. We’ve had that good of a car.’ Once past Bristol, the other races leading up to the Chase are at Atlanta and Richmond. Bowyer said his strategy for all three is simple, “It’s go, cat, go,” Bowyer said. “It’s same as every week. You’ve got to go out and try to win the race.” Since he trails 11th-ranking Greg Biffle by 158 points, Bowyer realizes that it is unlikely that he or Martin or anyone else will advance beyond 12th. He acknowledges four drivers have a shot of overtaking him but is focused primarily on Martin. “If he gets it turned around, he can rattled off two or three top fives,” Bowyer said. “He might win a race. If we can keep that from happening that will be great.” Energized by Harvick’s three wins and points lead, Bowyer believes that he can be a contender if he qualifies for the Chase. In the two seasons that he made the playoffs, Bowyer finished third and fifth. “If we can get into the Chase, we’ll be the last to get,” Bowyer said “There’s only one way for us to go. I’ve told my crew chief just get me in the Chase and we’ll have fun from there. The hardest thing for me is just to get in.” He’s ready to breath a little easier. | 888-3556





hat a day for baseball! I remember my Uncle Sam Pyle used to say that all the time. He followed baseball back in the days when almost every game was an afternoon affair. I thought of Sam when I glanced at the upcoming Braves schedule. Starting today and running through Sunday, Atlanta plays four consecutive day games. I can’t remember the last time that happened.

Gee whiz. Don’t forget the sunscreen guys. The Braves close a brief homestand today with a 1 p.m. game against National League East rival Washington. SportsSouth provides the live coverage. Then it’s off to Chicago, where the Braves battle the Cubs in a three-game set at historic Wrigley Field. Friday’s game starts at 2:20 p.m. (SportSouth), while Saturday’s 4 p.m. start is the national game on Fox (WGHP, Ch. 8 locally). The series concludes with a 2:20 p.m. first

pitch on Sunday. Fox Sports South (FSN) supplies the television coverage. I understand night games fit the viewing plans of most adult fans, whose jobs and busy schedules make day baseball a luxury rarely enjoyable. But for night workers and kids not yet in school, nothing beats a big-league game under the sun, be it in person or on radio or television.



The Atlanta Braves bulked up for the playoff race Wednesday, acquiring first baseman Derrek Lee from the Chicago Cubs. The Braves sent three minorleague pitchers to the Cubs, none considered toplevel prospects. Atlanta already had Troy Glaus at first base but, in an unexpected move, the team announced he’ll go on the 15-day disabled list. General manager Frank Wren wants Glaus to rest his legs for a week, then head to Triple-A Gwinnett to get in some work at his former position, third base. Presumably, the Braves envision a lineup late in the season – and the playoffs – that could include Lee and Glaus. Lee has put up disappointing numbers in the final season of his five-year, $65 million contract, hitting .251 with 16 homers and 56 RBIs.

Ryder Cup, playoffs key goals for Wyndham field

GREENSBORO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Anthony Kim could use another push to strengthen his case for the U.S. Ryder Cup team. Trevor Immelmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s need this week is even more pressing. Without a strong showing at the Wyndham Championship, he might not make golfâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s postseason. The final event before the PGA Tourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lucrative finishing kick starts today and promises to once again be dominated by players trying to make it to other events â&#x20AC;&#x201C; either the Ryder Cup or the FedEx Cup playoffs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just time for me to get the ball in the hole the next month and prove to him that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m playing well enough to make that team,â&#x20AC;? said Kim, part of the winning U.S. team two years ago at Valhalla. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;himâ&#x20AC;? is captain Corey Pavin, who will announce his wild-card selections Sept. 7. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a rough past few months for the 25-year-old Kim, whose first PGA Tour victory came two years ago and a few hours down the road in Charlotte at the former Wachovia Championship. Thumb surgery in May cost him three months, and he struggled in both tournaments he played since returning, fin-

ishing 16 over at the Bridgestone and missing the cut last week at the PGA. That dropped him off the list of qualifiers and placed his fate squarely in Pavinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hands. One thing Kim wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to worry about: making it to the playoffs. He arrived at Sedgefield Country Club at No. 14 on the points list, the highest-ranked player in the field. As always, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no shortage of players scrambling to lock up a spot at The Barclays. Among those looking for a last-minute points boost is Immelman. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at No. 154 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 113 points behind No. 125 Michael Letzig â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and is chasing his first top-10 finish since 2008. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s made the cut in only eight of the 14 tournaments heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s played this year, and playing his fourth tournament since the British Open, needs quite a push just to make it to the next one, next week at Ridgewood Country Club in New Jersey. No. 164 Fred Couples needs to finish third to qualify for The Barclays, while any player ranked 153rd or better who finishes in the top five this week will rack up enough points to reach the first tournament of the playoffs.

WELCOME â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Ledford enjoyed its season-opening road trip, sweeping North Davidson 25-16, 25-20, 25-20 on Wednesday. Cady Ray sparked the Panthers with 11 service points, five aces, eight kills, seven assists and four digs. Emily Vernon dished 11 assists for Ledford, while Stevi Williams added seven service points, six blocks, four digs and two aces. Ledford goes for a 2-0 start on Monday at home against Trinity.

T.W. ANDREWS DEF. W. GUILFORD HIGH POINT â&#x20AC;&#x201C; T.W. Andrews outlasted Western Guilford for a 22-25, 25-19, 25-16, 21-25, 15-10 nonconference victory on Wednesday night. Jacqueline Vera, Nora McKiver and Jill Ricks led the attack for the Red Raiders, who evened their record at 1-1. Andrews plays several matches in a tournament at Graham High School on Saturday. First match starts at 10 a.m.

THOMASVILLE DEF. TRINITY TRINITY â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Thomasville captured this battle of the Bulldogs, edging Trinity 27-25, 21-25, 25-15, 25-23 on Wednesday. Abby Thompson sparked the homestanding Bulldogs (0-2). Trinity plays host to Southwestern Randolph today.

Newman wins Whelen Modified Perfect Storm 150 at Bristol SPECIAL TO THE ENTERPRISE

BRISTOL, Tenn. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Ryan Newman continued his winning ways in the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour with a victory in the UNOH Perfect Storm 150 at Bristol Motor Speedway Wednesday. The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver held off a late charge from seven-time tour champion Mike Stefanik over the closing laps to secure his second Whelen win of the season.

James Civali was the top NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour driver in the annual combination race in third place overall.

Favre returns to Vikings

Heyward lifts Braves in ninth

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The lure of playing in another Super Bowl brought Brett Favre back to the NFL â&#x20AC;&#x201C; again. Favre joined his Minnesota Vikings teammates at practice Wednesday. The three-time MVP wore a helmet, shoulder pads and red quarterbackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s jersey as he worked out with Minnesota for the first time since getting battered by New Orleans as the Vikings lost the NFC championship game in January. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As we were driving on that last drive it seemed like it was destiny â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for us,â&#x20AC;? Favre said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was so close, so close to getting these guys to the Super Bowl.â&#x20AC;? Instead, Favre threw an interception in the final minute of regulation. The Vikings never got the ball back in overtime. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I owe it to this organization to give it one more try,â&#x20AC;? the quarterback said. The expectations always are high for Favre, even at 40.

Obama: Economy is coming back

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; President Barack Obama used the homey backdrop of a middle-class Ohio familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s backyard Wednesday to try to show voters he shares their concerns about the economy, health care and Social Security. Jacket off and sleeves rolled up, Obama took questions from the Weithman family and a small group of their neighbors arrayed around picnic tables and lawn chairs. His message was familiar: The economy needs more work, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s getting better. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of it is like recovering from an illness,â&#x20AC;? the president said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You get a little bit stronger each day.â&#x20AC;? The event came toward



FedEx CEO pay drops 4 percent

NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The top executive at FedEx Corp. saw his total compensation package drop by about 4 percent in the latest fiscal year, an Associated Press analysis shows. President and CEO Fred Smith took home a salary of about $1.19 million for the fiscal year ending in May, according to a filing late Monday with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about 12 percent lower than his 2009 salary of nearly $1.36 million â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the result of FedExâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s companywide pay cuts it made when the recession was at its worst point.

Oil prices drop on high crude supplies

NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Oil prices fell below $75 a barrel Wednesday as the government said crude supplies shrank less than analysts expected and stock markets retreated from Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rally. Benchmark crude lost $1.01 at $74.76 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

Deere profit rises on strong sales

NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Deere & Co. said Wednesday its thirdquarter profit grew 47 percent because American and Canadian farmers bought enough of the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s large equipment to offset a sharp downturn in Europe, but Deere kept its forecast for the year conservative. The company reported $617 million net income.

the end of a three-day swing that included glitzy, million-dollar fundraisers. Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s focus here was more on everyday struggles. He talked privately to Joe and Rhonda Weithman and their two children, 11year-old Josh and 9-yearold Rachel, around their kitchen table before moving to the backyard and broadening the conversation to include families from the neighborhood. With unemployment at 9.5 percent nationally, and topping 10 percent in Ohio, the economy dominated the discussion. Obama took questions on how to bring manufacturing jobs back to the U.S., how to breathe life into the still sagging housing market, and the

effect on Wall Street banks of his financial regulatory reform legislation. Obama used the questions as an opportunity to tout the expansive agenda heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s undertaken since assuming the presidency. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Slowly but surely we are moving in the right direction,â&#x20AC;? Obama told those gathered in the Weithmansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; backyard. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The economy is getting stronger, but it really suffered a big trauma.â&#x20AC;? Underscoring votersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; concern over the economy: A new Associated PressGfK poll shows 61 percent of those surveyed believe the economy has gotten worse or stayed the same on Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s watch.


MONROE, Michigan â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Despite flat sales and a loss for its latest quarter, La-Z-Boy Inc. said this week the performance is a good gauge for the rest of its fiscal year. The Monroe furniture company said it had a $195,000 loss on sales of $263.3 million for its fiscal first quarter ending July 24, compared with a profit of $2 million on sales of $262.7 million for the same period a year ago.

The results, released after the stock exchanges closed on Tuesday, were 8 cents a share worse than a consensus of analysts from Thomson Reuters. That could cause a decline in La-ZBoy stock. The Michigan firm attributed the poorer performance to higher raw material costs, supply chain disruptions from storms, and operating inefficiencies in Mexico. Spring earnings typically are the weakest, the company said.


NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Target Corp.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s secondquarter net income rose 14.3 percent even as it struggled with weakerthan-expected revenue because results were boosted by cost-cutting and improved business at its credit card operation. The discounter offered a profit outlook Wednesday that matched Wall

Street analystsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; views, driving shares up almost 2 percent, or 92 cents, to $51.60. But Target offered a conservative outlook for a key measure of revenue even as it hopes to drive more customers to its stores with its emphasis on food and its 5 percent discount for holders of its store credit card, set to start in October.

NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Stocks ended a seesaw day with a modest gain Wednesday after investors found some pluses in retail earnings reports. The Dow Jones industrial average and other major indexes fluctuated throughout the day before closing with slender gains. There was little news to motivate investors a day after a stream of improving economic numbers restored some of their enthusiasm for stocks and sent the Dow up 103 points. But retailers continued reporting second-quarter earnings and investors found a few positives. Target Corp. missed analystsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; forecasts for its second quarter revenue and offered a muted outlook for sales for the rest of the year. But the company told analysts it hopes to offset weak sales with higher sales of groceries and its new discounts for credit card holders. Target initially fell sharply, then recovered to a healthy advance. The Dow rose 9.69, or 0.1 percent, to 10,415.54. The Standard & Poorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 500 index rose 1.62, or 0.2 percent, to 1,094.16. The Nasdaq composite index rose 6.26, or 0.3 percent, to 2,215.70 Gainers were ahead of losers by 3 to 2 on the New York Stock Exchange. Volume was again extremely light, at 922 million shares.

American to charge for front-row seats

NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; American Airlines has found another fee. The Fort Worth, Texas, airline said Wednesday itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now charging between $19 and $39 for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Express Seatsâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; those spots in the first few rows of coach that include bulkhead seats. The carrier, which is operated by parent AMR Corp., is follow-

ing in the footsteps of several other airlines who already charge for special seats. UAL Corp.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s United Airlines, Continental Airlines, US Airways, JetBlue, Frontier, Spirit and AirTran all have some that cost extra. American said the price of the seats includes getting on the plane in the first â&#x20AC;&#x153;gen-

eral boardingâ&#x20AC;? group of passengers. The seats that will cost extra are in the first two or three rows of the coach cabin, depending on the size of the plane. The seats can only be bought at airport kiosks between 24 hours to 50 minutes before the flight for travel within the U.S.

American, the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second-largest airline behind Delta Air Lines, still provides its elite frequent fliers those seats for no extra charge. American also charges fees for checked bags, priority boarding, booking on the phone or in person, â&#x20AC;&#x153;sleep sets,â&#x20AC;? unaccompanied minors and pets.

Levis launches new global brand

SHANGHAI (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Jeans maker Levi Strauss & Co. launched a new global brand in China on Wednesday, joining a growing list of companies that hope to crack this fast-growing and youthful market by tailoring their products to Chinese tastes. Models at the launch were wearing sneakers and high-heeled sandals: not a cowboy hat or boot in sight. The new brand is aimed at young consumers in emerging markets, starting with China, Singapore and South Korea. From Nissan sedans to watches and Hermes luxury goods, global companies increasingly are designing products and brands with the Chinese market in mind as incomes rise amid rapid economic growth.

The newest incarnation of Levis will aim at a broader segment of Chinese consumers than traditional Levis, which sell for over $100 in the upscale malls along Shanghaiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tony Nanjing Rd. shopping strip. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the last few years we seen a new group of consumers,â&#x20AC;? said Aaron Boey, president for Levi Straussâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Asia-Pacific division. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many of them want stylish clothes but at accessible prices,â&#x20AC;? he said. Levi is calling the new brand â&#x20AC;&#x153;dENIZEN.â&#x20AC;? The Levis brand enjoys an avid following in China, among a relatively limited number well-off younger shoppers, some of whom are collectors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some people favor the classics, such as No. 501; others look for different

designs and some are obsessed with Levisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; cowboy spirit or the history behind the brand,â&#x20AC;? said Christina Wong, managing editor of INSTYLE magazine in Shanghai. San Francisco, California-based Levi Strauss is keen to expand its base in one of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest consumer markets, where sales of apparel and footwear hit $169 billion last

year, according to a report by Bank of America-Merrill Lynch, and growing at a healthy double-digit pace. Already, sales of garments and shoes in China have outpaced pricey Japan, accounting for more than a third for all of Asia, and increasingly, fashionconscious Shanghai is viewed as a foothold for the region.


High water Neighbors use a boat to help a resident evacuate her home on a section of Maple Street in Scottsboro, Ala., that flooded from heavy rain Tuesday.

Tennessee flash flooding reported; more rain coming NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Heavy rainfall has soaked some of the same parts of Middle Tennessee that were inundated with severe flooding in May, and forecasters warn that more rain is expected. A train washed off its tracks and rescuers

plucked people from the roof of a flooded car as continued downpours were predicted to feed the floods through Wednesday. Tennessee Emergency Management Agency officias said some areas have gotten 3-7 inches already and could get another 3-7 inches through today.
