Planners OK rezonings for new mosque BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER
HIGH POINT – The High Point Planning and Zoning Commission unanimously recommended the approval of two zoning requests that could allow a new mosque to built in the city after a lengthy public hearing that included several testimonies of support and several in opposition to the requests. Malik Hanif requested about 7 acres of land on the east side of Allen Jay Road be rezoned from a residential multi-family district to conditional use public and institutional with an accompanying conditional-use permit pertaining to development standards and vehicular access to build an Islamic worship
center and educational facility on the land. The city allows churches or places of worship in all residential zoning districts, but the public institution zoning does not have parcel size or access restrictions for a place of worship. According to Uzma Zaman, a spokesperson for the Islamic Center of High Point, the city’s Muslim community has grown in recent years, and the two mosques that exist in the city – on Market Center Drive and Lexington Avenue – are too small. “We want a worship place since we have a big community, and every day that community is growing,” Zaman said. “Most Muslim families are in favor of this and would love to see this because the site is close to their families.”
Others said they were in favor of the request because the land is often used for illegal activities at night. Surrounding neighbors opposed to the requests cited traffic and religious differences as major concerns. “I’ve owned property on Ingram Road for 15 years, and I’ve seen it go downhill,” Tommy Shipwash said when he addressed the commission. “I don’t know if these people building it are those that are (Islamic) radicals, but I don’t want it in my neighborhood. I’m sure you wouldn’t want it in yours.” David Campbell, a resident of Allen Jay Road, said traffic created by the Islamic center in addition to school bus traffic from Allen Jay Elementary School could be a safety hazard. There also have been talks about re-
opening the former Allen Jay Middle School as a charter school, he said. The planning staff said a traffic analysis was not required because traffic from the Islamic center would not peak during the hours that school buses were en route. Commission member Martha Shepherd said approving the requests was constitutional. “Right down the road (from the site) is the Fairfield Enrichment Center,” she said. “A few blocks down is Allen Jay Baptist Church. I think our Constitution gives you freedom of religion. I’m glad that it gives us that.” The requests will go before City Council at 5:30 p.m. on Sept. 20 in City Hall.

Business owners compare recession to ‘bumpy ride’ Before you read...
Fourth in a seven-part series.
BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER
HIGH POINT – When local business owners look back on 2009, they don’t look back on it fondly. “That was our worst year ever,” said Russ Hildebrand, general manager at Liberty Steakhouse and Brewery on Mall Loop Road in High Point. “It was discouraging, but we saw signs of life and hung in there.” Small business owners say they didn’t see an immediate impact when the stock market crashed in 2008 and the word “recession” became common in the country’s vocabulary. Instead, decreased foot traffic and sales came in the form of a slow trickle. By mid-2009, most say they knew they were in for a long, bumpy ride. “It’s been gradual but relentless,” said Grateful Bread owner Teresa
Mackey about the recession’s impact on her eatery on N. Main Street. “I don’t really look at it as this year verHARD TIMES sus last year anymore (in terms of Living in the sales). Now it’s this recession month versus last ■■■ month. If you’re a few hundred dollars off on one day and that trend continues, within a couple of weeks it has a strong, negative effect.” Foot traffic is something that decreased at both restaurants. But even when customers did walk in their doors, their orders were lighter, Hildebrand said. “The people that were coming in were buying less expensive entrees.” With items like beer and sandwiches experiencing sales declines, it’s no surprise that high-end retailers like Simon Jewelers in the Times Square shopping center on N. Main Street saw a drop in sales and traffic. “Luckily, we were diversified,”

said store owner Gary Simon. “We have so many gift, bridal and repair services to offer. We continued a basic core amount of business.” But relief is in sight, the three business owners say, and they’ve seen improvement in 2010. Year-to-year

sales at Liberty have improved every month since February. Like the downturn, however, the recovery also is turning out to be a slow, bumpy ride. “This economic climate is like taking a trip in a car,” Simon said. “We feel now that we’re going in the right direction, but at the same time, someone is pumping the breaks. We’re going and stopping over and over again.”

New GTCC campus to focus on logistics NEW CAMPUS
GREENSBORO – County officials will gather at 10 a.m. Thursday to break ground for what will become Phase I of Guilford County Technical Community College’s Northwest Campus. Located on N.C. 68 two miles north of Piedmont Triad International Airport, the initial phase will include site development and the construction of three buildings and a parking deck at an estimated cost of $65 million. The project is to be completed by the spring semester of 2013, said Dan Sitko, the college’s director of construction. Samet Construction/SRS of Greensboro is construction manager for the project, and the architects are from Perkins
Timetable: It is expected to take 25 to 30 years to complete GTCC’s new Northwest Campus. Eastman of Neighboring Concepts and Mercer Architects. The campus will be the fourth for GTCC. The 52-year-old college has campuses in Jamestown, Greensboro and High Point. About 15,000 students are enrolled in curriculum programs. Some programs will be relocated from the Jamestown campus to the new campus. These include automotive, auto-body, heavy equipment, logistics and welding. The transportation facility on the Jamestown
campus will be renovated to house the physical plant, construction and shipping, and receiving departments. The welding building space reuse has not been determined. Space vacated by the logistics program will allow for growth in other programs on the Jamestown campus. Financing for the project on the 100-acre campus comes from bond referendums approved by Guilford County voters in 2004 and 2008. Phase I construction of the new campus will include these buildings: • The North Carolina Center for Global Logistics and the Center for Business and Industry. This building will have 97,500 square feet of floor space, which will be used for academic programs for business
ARCHDALE – A sidewalk project that will serve Trindale Elementary School and several subdivisions has been given the go-ahead by the Archdale City Council. The Archdale City Council on Tuesday night voted unanimously to sign an agreement with the N.C. Department of Transportation for the construction of the sidewalk along the west side of Balfour Drive from Brookhollow Lane to Barrett Drive, including Trindale School Road. The project primarily will be funded through a $100,000 Safe Routes to School grant through the N.C. Department of Transportation. The estimated cost for the project is expected to be $120,000. The

there will utilize it to walk to school,” he said. “If we can get a few cars off the road, it will have served its purpose.” In other business, the City Council voted unanimously to award a contract to All Seasons Landscape Management to do landscaping for the new entrance at Creekside Park. All Seasons had the lowest bid at $104,609. The new entrance project, which is expected to be finished in December, is part of $1 million of improvements to Creekside Park, according to Elaine Albertson, the city’s parks and recreation director. The city matched a $500,000 grant from the N.C. Parks and Recreation Trust Fund for the improvements. email@example.com | 888-3657

city of Archdale would cover the remaining costs, according to the agreement. Jeff Wells, the city’s planning director, said the targeted completion date for the sidewalk would be next summer when school is out. He said the sidewalk is part of the city’s Pedestrian Network Plan. “It seemed to fit well with the Safe Routes to School program,” Wells said. “We targeted it because it was right there at a school. That was the main reason why we targeted that piece for that specific grant.” According to Wells, Stoneybrooke, Bouldin and Craig Heights are subdivisions within the area that will have access to the sidewalk. “We expect that some kids who live within the immediate area

Number of US troops in Iraq falls below 50K
Troops kill 40 militants east of Afghan capital KABUL, Afghanistan â€“ Afghan and international forces have killed an estimated 40 Taliban fighters east of the Afghan capital Kabul as part of operations to provide security ahead of parliamentary elections next month, NATO said Tuesday. Two coalition servicemen, including one American, were killed in fighting in the volatile south where the insurgency is most heavily entrenched, the coalition reported.
BAGHDAD (AP) â€“ The number of U.S. troops in Iraq has fallen below 50,000 for the first time since the 2003 U.S.-led invasion and ahead of the end-of-the-month deadline mandated by President Barack Obama, the American military said in a statement Tuesday.
UN says 800,000 cut off by Pakistan floods
The number is a watershed in the more than seven years that the United States has been at war in Iraq. Under Obamaâ€™s plan, American forces will no longer conduct combat operations but are instead to focus on training Iraqi troops.
ISLAMABAD â€“ About 800,000 people have been cut off by floods in Pakistan and are only reachable by air, the United Nations said Tuesday, adding it needs at least 40 more helicopters to ferry lifesaving aid to increasingly desperate people. The appeal was an indication of the massive problems facing the relief effort in Pakistan more than three weeks after the floods hit the country, affecting more than 17 million people.

Raising hopes further, a second bore hole punched into the chamber where the miners are entombed, and a third probe was nearing the spot on Tuesday.
Hong Kong angry over tourist hijack deaths MANILA, Philippines â€“ The Philippines acknowledged â€œinadequaciesâ€? in handling a hostage crisis that killed eight Hong Kong tourists, as anger over the botched negotiations erupted Tuesday in Hong Kong with demonstrations and harsh words. A heartbreaking picture emerged of the victims â€“ a mother of three who lost her husband and two daughters, a teenager oblivious of her parentsâ€™ death and a tour guide who aspired to become a yoga teacher.
Police: Suspect nabbed in 1999 suitcase death LONDON â€“ Authorities in Bahrain arrested a suspect Tuesday in the case of a Canadian singer whose body was found stuffed inside a suitcase at Heathrow Airport in 1999, according to Londonâ€™s Scotland Yard.

PAULA WILLIAMS: It’s time to head back to school. TOMORROW
Opinion Page Editor: Vince Wheeler firstname.lastname@example.org (336) 888-3517
We figured out how to spend government check My wife just received a $250 check from our government to “help” with the Medicare donut-hole dilemma. Those who routinely pass that drug cost limit because of their tier 2 or 3 prescriptions understand our situation. This check amounted to a “drop in the bucket” rather than a practical solution to our total costs. It appeared as just so much “symbolism over substance.” We became suspicious about the gift. In fact, it was about the same as that one-time $250 gift we got a while back instead of a Social Security cost of living increase. Please keep in mind that these same legislators continue to give themselves raises. But, I digress. We don’t mean to seem ungrateful, but that check was a final, tangible example of this Congress’ and administration’s excessive spending. It amounted to funds derived from increasing our national debt that our grandkids would have to pay back. So,
what to do with this check? We considered sending it back, but found no procedure to do that. After admitting that cashing it was our next reasonable step, donations came to mind. However, we already do this to our satisfaction. If we pre-paid our tax obligations to the Fed, it would only end up in the same irresponsible hands. Speaking of our Democratic controlled Congress and president, it’s interesting how some in the media and Democratic Party, label themselves as moderate or progressive, rather than liberal socialist. My old Austrian grandfather once advised me that “If it brays, behaves and smells like a jackass, you shouldn’t need much to convince you about what it really is.” Suddenly, my wife and I knew how to help end the current
madness. We donated $125 to the National Republican Senatorial Committee, and the rest to the National Republican Congressional Committee. The check problem was solved! CHUCK BINO High Point
It’s a bad move to send the imam overseas Why is the U.S. State Department spending our money to send a militant Muslim, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, overseas? One who wants to impose Sharia law on America. The government says he cannot use the trip to raise money to build his monument to murder in New York, but I wonder. The women of this country
should be screaming about this trip. Just research the dress code for women. Where are our “representatives”? The 110th bank this year has failed. Unemployment filings were way up recently and still hover between 9 percent and 10 percent (over 20 percent using the formula the government used before the 1990s). CNN reported recently that the unemployment rate for returning veterans was 11.5 percent. Remember, Obama said it wouldn’t go above 8 percent if we passed the so desperately needed stimulus. But he can’t be bothered with little things like unemployment. He has another vacation to be on. Wonder who’s paying that bill? What’s wrong with going to Camp David? Better yet, stay at the White House and work instead of running off somewhere daily to make a speech. Quit talking and work! PERRY DAVIS High Point

ith this month being the 75th anniversary of President Franklin D. Roosevelt signing the nation’s Social Security system into law, commentators from all sides of the issue have been writing and talking about Social Security and whether a funding “crisis” lies ahead. For many of the commentators, their conclusions are rooted in their political views. For instance, a writer who rails against obscene Pentagon expenditures or Bush tax cuts for the wealthy, likely will see no impending financial disaster for Social Security. On the other hand, someone who complains of excessive government taxes and runaway government spending, likely sees a meltdown of the Social Security system looming. Count us in that camp. You heard the news earlier this year from the Congressional Budget Office that those Social Security deductions from your paycheck soon will not be enough to cover the payouts to retirees and other beneficiaries. But not to worry, say ardent supporters of the system. The $2.5 trillion Social Security Trust Fund can cover those payouts for decades to come. Well technically, that’s true. But there’s a serious flaw in that position. Most of that $2.5 trillion isn’t cash in the bank, it’s IOUs from the federal government, the same federal government that is borrowing billions and billions and billions to pay its bills today. So, to say the Social Security system is sound for decades to come is foolish. Those funds will be there to pay benefits only if the federal government raises taxes, borrows money, prints more money or, perhaps, begins controlling expenditures in order to generate funds to repay those trust fund IOUs. We’d call that a crisis. And we’d call this a crisis, too. You read in Sunday’s Enterprise a story from The Associated Press describing how Fidelity Investments is reporting a large increase in hardship withdrawals from 401(k) retirement plans Fidelity administers. During these tough economic times, people are forced to withdraw retirement savings in order to meet current expenses. For many of us who don’t have a lot of confidence in the long-term viability of Social Security, the fact that people now are tapping their private retirement accounts for current expenses is a bad sign for the future. Despite what we are hearing from President Obama and Vice President Biden, this isn’t a “summer of recovery.”
An independent newspaper
Where is Obama’s concern for America’s security?
ne of the few campaign promises that Barack Obama has kept was this: “We are going to change the United States of America!” As in many other cases, those who were thrilled by the thought of “change” seldom seemed to consider whether it would be a change for the better or for the worse. True believers in the Obama cult assumed that it had to be a change for the better. Now it is slowly dawning on more people that it is a change for the worse – runaway government spending, under the banners of “stimulus” and “jobs” is not stimulating anything except political pay-offs to special interests. As for jobs, the percentage of the population with jobs keeps on declining, even as the administration points to all the jobs it is creating. It is of course not pointing to all the other jobs that it is destroying, whether by taking money out of the private sector or by loading so many mandates on employers that labor is made artificially too expensive for many employers to do much hiring. But the most dangerous and most lasting damage that this administration has done to this nation has been in the international jungle, where it is alienating our long-time allies, dismantling our credibility by reneging on our commitments to putting up a missile shield in Eastern Europe and – above all – doing nothing meaningful to stop the leading terror-sponsoring nation in the world, Iran, from getting nuclear weapons. We could deter the Soviet Union with our own nuclear weapons, but no one can deter suicidal fanatics, whether they are international terrorists of the sort that caused 9/11 or suicidal fanatics in charge of the government of Iran, who have long been supplying international networks of suicidal fanatics. Threatening to launch nuclear retaliation against the people of Iran will not deter them. They have already shown how little they care about the people of Iran and how much they care about their fanatical beliefs and hatefilled agendas. How much does our own administration in Washington care about the American people and their national security? This is not a question you would usually have to ask about any administration of either party. But this is not like any other administration, and Barack
Obama is unlike any other president of the United States in having come from a background of decades of associations and alliances with people who resent this country and its people. Against that background, the Obama administration’s OPINION undermining of our long-standing international alliances Thomas with Britain and Israel, among Sowell others, while seeking to reach ■■■ accommodations with nations hostile to this country, raises painful questions and even more painful possibilities for the future. Gratuitous affronts to both Britain and Israel began early in the Obama administration, including a clear downgrading of state visits from their national leaders. It is not only in our foreign relations that the administration’s commitment to the national security of the United States is open to serious question. Domestically, as well, the same serious and painful questions arise. After spending hundreds of billions of dollars on political pork barrel projects from coast to coast – some frivolous beyond belief – its only major cut in federal spending has been its move to cut $100 billion from the Defense Department’s budget. If there was ever a time when we needed a larger standing army, as distinguished from relying on National Guard troops, taken suddenly from civilian life and sent on multiple tours of combat duty, this is that time. We need a bigger and constantly modernizing military, not a bargain basement military, trimmed down to leave more money for pork barrel spending. Sometimes small things can give you a better clue than large things. A recent editorial in Investor’s Business Daily pointed out that hundreds of captured illegal aliens from terrorist-sponsoring nations were released on their own recognizance within the United States. Are these the actions of an administration that is serious about the national security of the American people?

New adventure begins with university life
Is your hearing current?
Attention City Council candidates
211 W. Lexington Avenue, Suite 104, High Point, NC 889.9977
The Enterprise is offering to candidates for High Point City Council and the mayorâ€™s post the chance to write one guest column about their candidacies to be published prior to city elections, which will be held Nov. 2. Columns must be no longer than 450 words (columns exceeding that length will be rejected in their entirety, as will be columns that are potentially libelous). Columns must be e-mailed or digitally transmitted to the Enterprise no later than 5 p.m., Oct. 1. E-mail columns to Vince Wheeler, Opinion page editor, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Call him at 888-3517 with questions. Columns must include the candidateâ€™s full address and a daytime phone number.
eople always say that kids grow up fast. I guess thatâ€™s true, since now Iâ€™m all grown up and ready to start college. Iâ€™m writing my last column from my dorm at UNC-Greensboro, a tiny postage stamp room that always stays cold, even when the AC is off. I have to do my own laundry now, which I have done maybe twice in my life (but as a college student Iâ€™m supposed to be able to figure that one out). Speaking of figuring out, there already have been problems to solve; one might call them quizzes before the actual test begins. The very first one involved my room. As I said before, my room is small. I expected limited space, but man, when I walked in, I couldnâ€™t help but wonder how I would even get around in it. So during the attempt to arrange the beds, dressers and desks in a way so that my roommate and I wouldnâ€™t kill ourselves in the night, my mom and I decided to bunk the beds. With a herculean effort we prevailed â€“ and ended up with a mattress six feet in the air. While a bunked bed frees up more space, it also leads to the natural and proper question â€“ what is the best way to get up there? I decided not to jump (as my boyfriend suggested) and for a few days had to settle with climbing up the end in a somewhat Spiderman fashion, albeit awkwardly. (Donâ€™t worry, Mom; I was careful.) Fortunately, my dad constructed a ladder that makes the climb much safer (because a life-threatening situation twice a day gets old after a while). Another trouble Iâ€™ve encountered
is having to learn the operating times of buildings. Conflicting operating hours made picking up my books a hassle, and it also resulted in many hungry freshTEEN VIEW man when the honors orientation on SatJulie urday was scheduled Fox to begin at the same â– â– â– time that the cafeteria opened. Letâ€™s just say we learned the cafâ€™s schedule the hard way. And the list goes on â€“ learning the bus routes, trying not to overload my schedule and finding the buildings where my classes are located are just a few of the things Iâ€™m starting to think about. But these last few days havenâ€™t contained only problems. Iâ€™ve made new friends, seen new perspectives and even gotten excited about my honors classes, which I was previously neutral about. I must say I have fallen in love with the cafeteria â€“ there are so many options that I just have to try! And even convocation wasnâ€™t all bad; some school pride might be making its way into my heart â€“ not to be sentimental or anything. So as I close my last column, I just want to let my readers know that Iâ€™m thankful for your support this year as Iâ€™ve made my journey to where I am now. Iâ€™ve liked hearing that many of you enjoyed my writing. Thereâ€™s just one thing left to say: Go Spartans! Teen View columnist JULIE FOX is a 2010 graduate of High Point Christian Academy.

Ready for departure Longtime Piedmont Triad International Airport director announces retirement BY PAT KIMBROUGH ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER
HIGH POINT – The longtime leader of Piedmont Triad International Airport announced Tuesday that he will retire at the end of September. Ted Johnson, who joined the airport in 1968 and has served as executive director since 1993, said he felt the time had come to slow down and pursue new things after accomplishing several major goals, including the
opening of the FedEx Corp. cargo hub last year. He said having other major projects finished, such as construction of a new entrance and exit interchange for the airport and a new runway, also played into his timing. “They were kind of my milestones. When I got that complete, I was ready to step back a little bit,” said Johnson, 70. “I’ve worked all my life and it would be nice to get in a few years of doing some things you just want to do.”
The Piedmont Triad Airport Authority will take up the matter of naming JohnJohnson son’s successor when it meets next month, said Chairman Henry Isaacson. “I’d give him an A-plus if I had to give him a report card. He just has done an excellent job. He served the airport well,” Isaacson said of Johnson. “He was nonpolitical, and he was always attentive to his job and very focused on what was in the best interest of the airport.” Johnson helped guide the FedEx project through a
more than 10-year regulatory-approval process that included legal challenges from foes who questioned whether aircraft noise from the overnight sorting operation would degrade the quality of life and hurt property values of residents in some parts of north High Point and other areas near the airport. Advocates eventually won out, and the $300 million project is touted as a major economic development engine for the region. Johnson’s tenure was also beset by challenges, including flat passenger traffic at the airport in recent years. PTIA officials have continuously worked to recruit new airlines, but a shortage
of discount carriers, as well as the general state of the economy, have made it difficult to compete with airports in Raleigh and Charlotte, Isaacson said. “He did a good job with the airlines. He did a good job with our tenants. He brought the HondaJet project, Timco, Cessna and our other tenants along. There were just all kinds of challenges during his tenure,” Isaacson said. Johnson said he looks forward to spending more time on his farm in Jamestown, visiting with his seven grandchildren and pursuing volunteer opportunities.

ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT
HIGH POINT – The American Furniture Hall of Fame Foundation has adopted a threeyear plan to preserve the furniture industry. A four-point plan was adopted by the board at a session earlier this year, according to the AFHA. The four points are: • Publishing its oral histories: The foundation has conducted nearly 40 oral histories of industry leaders and is in
the process of publishing each history in a hardcover book for sale to the industry and public. • Soliciting memorabilia: The AFHA is doing a memoralbilia call “before it is lost,” according to a press release. It seeks digital scans of company history books, photographs, advertising and marketing materials for use by researchers and visitors to its website. • Developing a Wall of Fame: The organization is in discussion to develop a timeline that includes innovations and developments in retail, manufacturing and marketing to be shared with the public in a historical exhibit and on its website. • Updating its website: FurnitureDealer.net has donated its services to create a website that will “capture the stories of our industry in words and pictures,” according to the organization. Historical photos and stories from the industry will be displayed. The AFHA also will hold its 22nd American Furniture Hall of Fame induction banquet on Oct. 17 during the fall High Point Market. Actress Jane Seymour will serve as the host.
Lori Hunter was appointed interim associate vice chancellor of enrollment management at North Carolina A&T State University. Her background includes serving as a senior administrator in higher education, a manager in the corporate sector and entrepreneur.

It’s family. I think it’s going to be a great time.” Aurelia Sink, CCM executive director, said the food contributions from the event come at a time when her organization has a “great need.” “Usually this time of the year, we are running low on food, which we are, so that will be good,” she said.

Eden woman sentenced in cyclistâ€™s death MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE
GREENSBORO â€“ An Eden woman who fatally struck a Summerfield cyclist late last year will serve 14 to 17 months in prison. Grayson Warren Dawson, 48, of 702 Moir Mill Road pleaded guilty today in Guilford County Superior Court to felony hit-and-run, misdemeanor death by motor vehicle and driving without an operatorâ€™s license. She will report to state prison Oct. 11. The conviction stems from an incident on Oct. 24, 2009, that led to the death of David Sherman. Sherman, 55, was riding his bike along North Church Street north of N.C. 150 when Dawsonâ€™s SUV hit him head-on and killed him instantly. Dawson made a Uturn and drove off. Highway Patrol troopers arrested her two days later when a clerk at a Rockingham County gas station noticed that Dawsonâ€™s Dodge Durango had a caved-in windshield and other front-end damage and called Crime Stoppers. Dawson told the clerk she had hit a deer. In testimony Tuesday before Judge Lindsay R. Davis Jr., doctors said Dawson had suffered from ulcerative colitis, a bowel disease, for three decades. On Oct. 20, she had a medical procedure at UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill.
for his comedic roles on â€œSaturday Night Liveâ€? and in the â€œFather of the Brideâ€? franchise, married Dolman in 1980 after the pair met while working together in a production of â€œGodspell.â€? They have three children: Katherine, 27, Oliver, 24, and Henry, 20.
On Oct. 24, her birthday, Dawson drove for the first time since the procedure. She left her house in Rockingham County and went to Greensboro to shop and visit her daughter. She hit Sherman on the way back. The force of the impact snapped his bike in two pieces and sent him into the SUVâ€™s windshield and roof. Doctors testified that Dawson was taking 11 medications after the procedure. Some of those medicines are known to cause amnesia, dizziness and drowsiness. Her attorney, Locke Clifford, said Dawson admits to falling asleep behind the wheel but didnâ€™t knowingly hit Sherman. He said she admits that she reasonably should have known she hit someone but didnâ€™t, in fact, know. Dawson didnâ€™t know she had struck someone until authorities arrived at her door and told her about the accident days later, Clifford said. Prosecutor Chris Parrish said Dawson knew she hit Sherman and gave herself mercy by leaving the scene of an accident and leaving him dying by the side of the road. He said she knew that in her medical condition she should not have been behind the wheel, yet she put herself before others by deciding to go shopping and getting out of the house on her birthday.

Perdue campaign fined for flight reporting errors ASHEVILLE (AP) â€“ The State Board of Elections fined Gov. Beverly Perdueâ€™s campaign $30,000 on Tuesday for failing to report more than 40 private flights but balked at ordering a wider investigative hearing after a majority found no deliberate effort to break the law. The board voted 4-1 to impose the maximum penalties against the Democrat for filing late campaign reports. The Bev Perdue Committee had filed the reports on time but later amended them to include flights campaign officials say were discovered in a self-audit of the committeeâ€™s books. Board staff spent months conducting interviews and requesting information on flights from more than a dozen gubernatorial candidates since 2004. The two Republican members of the board tried unsuccessfully to raise the penalty to $75,000 or hold a public hearing that would serve as
a broader investigation of Perdueâ€™s campaign flights. The three Democrats voted against both options. The decision essentially ends the examination of Perdueâ€™s flights.

crat. â€œObviously, the campaign, as it related to airplanes, was not run in an efficient nor orderly fashion.â€? Perdue campaign spokesman Marc Farinella said the decision was reasonable and shows the board agreed with the campaignâ€™s contention that the problems arose from inadequate and sloppy efforts to monitor flights while Perdue was lieutenant governor and later a gubernatorial candidate. Perdue received flights for campaign stops and other events from donors, or the campaign paid air charter companies for them. Perdue, who didnâ€™t attend Tuesdayâ€™s meeting in Asheville, said the campaign would pay the fine by the end of the day. â€œFor eight months now I have said repeatedly â€“ my campaign had a flawed system for recording flights, and we should have done a better job,â€? Perdue said in a statement.
Officials: Craigslist ad for teen girls is scam MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE
SHELBY â€“ An online ad seeking teenage girls to sell smooches in a Cleveland County Fair kissing booth is a scam, authorities and fair organizers say. An advertisement posted on the Charlotte Craigslist site sought â€œat least a dozen high school girls to work the kissing booth at the Cleveland County Fairâ€? and promised wages of
â€œup to $200 a day if you are cute.â€? But fair manager Calvin Hastings said thereâ€™s no kissing booth planned for North Carolinaâ€™s largest county fair. â€œGood Lord, no,â€? he said. â€œThere might be a cow down there that will give you some sugar, but thatâ€™s as far as itâ€™s going to go.â€? Hastings said the fair, which runs from Sept. 30 to Oct. 9 at the Cleveland County Fairgrounds in Shelby, offers â€œfamily entertainment.â€? A kissing booth wouldnâ€™t be an appro-
priate attraction, he explained. The online ad stated that girls under 18 would need their parentsâ€™ permission to work in the kissing booth. It didnâ€™t name a sponsoring group or provide a phone number-â€“ applicants were given an anonymous Craigslist e-mail address to request more information. The Cleveland County Sheriffâ€™s Office hadnâ€™t received any complaints about the kissing booth ad, Capt. Alan Norman said Tuesday.

Womanâ€™s longtime affair now brings her only pain
ear Abby: I met â€œGuyâ€? seven years ago and fell deeply in love. We dated for a couple of months, but one day with no warning he broke up with me on my voicemail. Three weeks after the breakup, Guy came to my home. It was the week of his wedding, which he never bothered to mention. I later heard he had been married from a mutual friend. I knew Guy had been seeing someone, but he never indicated that it was serious. We have been having an affair ever since our breakup. Because I love him, I canâ€™t say no to him. Heâ€™ll go through periods where he says heâ€™s getting divorced. He even told my mom that. Then he calls and says theyâ€™re going to work it out. I never pushed. I want him to be happy â€“ even if itâ€™s not with me â€“ and I want no part in causing a divorce. Every time I start to get over Guy, he comes around again. Itâ€™s like he has radar. The last time we slept together, a month ago, he told me he thought he had married the wrong woman. The next day, he admitted he has too much at stake to make a change. I am in so much pain. I donâ€™t want to be his mistress. If I tell his wife, Guy will never speak to me again. Should I tell her? â€“ Runner-up in Cheyenne Dear Runner-up:
Whether youâ€™re willing to admit it to yourself or not, by continuing the affair ADVICE with Guy you HAVE Dear been trying Abby to sabotage â– â– â– his marriage. Your first clue that Guy wasnâ€™t much of a man should have been when he used voicemail to â€œbreak upâ€? seven years ago. He has now made it plain that he isnâ€™t going to leave his wife. Havenâ€™t you recognized by now that he is concerned only with his own gratification and doesnâ€™t care who is hurt by his actions? This Guy will waste as much of your time as you are willing to give. For your own sake, call a halt and get your head straight. You wonâ€™t stop hurting until you draw the line. Dear Abby: Last year I decided to pursue a career as a foreign diplomat. My wife and I weighed the pros and cons and concluded that the opportunity was worth the separation from family and friends. Iâ€™m proud that Iâ€™ll be able to provide the kind of life for my family that we have always wanted, and Iâ€™m set to begin training soon. We have begun spreading the news, and most of our relatives and friends share our excitement. My wifeâ€™s sister, â€œLucin-
da,â€? however, is furious. Her objections started with snide little â€œjabsâ€? but have grown into a full-blown assault. She is accusing me of ruining her life and threatening to cut off all contact unless we reconsider. My wife is distraught from the badgering and Iâ€™m afraid their relationship is on the verge of collapse. Should I bow to Lucindaâ€™s threats or follow our dream and risk being disowned by a member of the family? Iâ€™m afraid I have inadvertently ruined my wifeâ€™s relationship with her sister. â€“ Second Thoughts in Minnesota Dear Second Thoughts: Unless you want the remainder of your marriage and your career to be dictated by your wifeâ€™s sister, do not back down. Lucinda appears to be an insecure, and possibly troubled, woman who is trying to control you and your wife through emotional blackmail. You have a bright â€“ not to mention fascinating â€“ future ahead of you. So follow your chosen path and do not allow your sister-inlaw to continue to interfere. To fold now would only be the beginning of your problems. DEAR ABBY is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

Dad teaches son to turn lights on
ark Baynes was trained in the art of servant leadership from his earliest memories. As the adopted son of Jack Baynes, an electrical engineer in Macon, Ga., Baynes assisted his dad as they lit up the town. It didnâ€™t matter if it was a ball field, a park or a community center, if it needed lights, Jack Baynes was the volunteer to make it happen. On one ABOVE occasion, when Mark AND was 15, his BEYOND dad decided that it was Patty Jo time to Sawvel light up the â– â– â– high school football field. Mark operated the walk-behind Ditch Witch trencher. â€œI really didnâ€™t want to be there. It was hard work in the Georgia summer heat, and I didnâ€™t appreciate the value of serving others,â€? Mark admitted. But before long, his fatherâ€™s example and his Boy Scout training kicked in and Mark learned a valuable lesson. For his Eagle Scout project, Mark rallied some volunteers to restore a greenhouse in the public gardens. â€œI learned that it is hard to get people to show up, but once they do, they forge a friendship. Working together on a common project creates a memory that you keep forever,â€? Mark said. By the time he was 28, Mark was working with a different kind of light. As a college pastor and recent graduate with a Master of Divinity degree at Beeson Divinity School in Alabama, he organized a mission trip to Seattle to restore a community center on the Suquamish Indian Reservation. This time, it was the son who asked the father to help. â€œSomehow it morphed from one security light to lighting up the entire downtown and tennis courts,â€? Mark said with a laugh. On the day the project was completed, the Indians held their annual Chief Seattle Days, and both Baynes men and the other volunteers witnessed the joy as thousands of Indians shook their hands and thanked them for accomplishing something they had only dreamed of for decades. In spreading the light of Godâ€™s word, Mark Baynes eventually incorporated music â€“ Celtic style. As a songwriter, vocalist and musician, one of Baynes favorite outreach missions happened in Aberdeen, Scotland, where he lived before moving to Kernersville. Baynes volunteered in a soup kitchen and then played spiritual music. â€œThese people coming in were needy, neglected, and defeated. Then, to see them light up with a glimmer of hope as they felt the music gave me an awesome feeling of joy,â€? Baynes said. PATTY JO SAWVEL is a freelance writer from Kernersville.
Griffith museum unveils items from â€˜Gooberâ€™ MOUNT AIRY â€“ Items donated by actor George Lindsey will be unveiled in a public ceremony at Mount Airyâ€™s Andy Griffith Museum on Friday at 11 a.m. Lindsey, who played the lovably bumbling mechanic Goober Pyle on â€œThe Andy Griffith Showâ€? has donated several key wardrobe items from his famous role. â€œItâ€™s an honor for me both to have my stuff on display and also that people want to see it,â€? Lindsey said. â€œOf course, this â€˜stuffâ€™ was on TV a long time â€“ and still is. Generations of TV watchers continue to love Mayberry and all its characters. Iâ€™m proud to have portrayed one of those characters. The love is mutual.â€? Lindsey, who lives in Nashville, Tenn., is unable to attend the unveiling, but Mount Airy resident Betty Lynn, who played Thelma Lou on â€œThe Andy Griffith Showâ€? will be in attendance. Lindseyâ€™s donation comes less than a month before Mount Airyâ€™s 21st annual

When medicines fail, surgery is heartburn option
ear Dr. Donohue: I am 25. I have a serious case of GERD. I’ve been put on four different medicines. They aren’t working. I also have palpitations throughout the day. I’ve been told by doctors and nurses that there is nothing dangerous about them. I’d like to know if this true. – J.C.
GERD – gastroesophageal reflux disorder – is heartburn. It’s the upward spurting of stomach acid and digestive juices into the esophagus, the swallowing tube, a place that is not able to cope with these corrosive juices the way the stomach is. Eliminate or go easy on foods that make GERD worse: citrus fruits; tomatoes; onions; carbonated drinks; spicy, fatty or fried foods; chocolate; peppermint; and caffeine. If you’re overweight, weight loss lessens GERD symptoms. Don’t lie down after eating. Don’t smoke. Sleep with your head, chest and stomach on a slope by putting 6-inch blocks under the bedposts at the head of your bed. That position keeps stomach acid in the stomach. Don’t wear anything that constricts your stomach, like tight pants or tight belts. Medicines called pro-

ton pump inhibitors nearly completely turn off acid production. Nexium, HEALTH Prevacid, Prilosec, Dr. Paul Protonix, Donohue Aciphex ■■■ and Dexilant are their names. If you still have heartburn while on these medicines, it’s OK to use an antacid along with them. If medicines fail, other causes of heartburn need consideration, things like bile reflux or eosinophilic esophagitis. If these conditions aren’t found, then surgical treatment of GERD is an option that’s open to you. Palpitations mean a thumping or racing heart. They can be felt as a thud in the chest. The cause is an extra beat – or more correctly, a premature beat – one that comes before it should. The beat after a premature beat is delayed. During the delay, the heart fills with more blood than usual, and that causes a thump in the chest when the heart empties. Premature beats are almost always innocent and need no treatment. You can believe your doctors and nurses.
Dear Dr. Donohue: One year ago, my son’s dog was ill and passed away. She was given a blood transfusion and was treated with Imuran at a university vet hospital. After treatment, she had accidents in the home and auto. My son is convinced the home is now unfit to live in. He wears rubber gloves to do ordinary tasks and compulsively washes his hands. His younger child is not allowed to touch him. I am concerned for his wife and children. – D.S. So am I, and for him. He has gone way over the top. Imuran (azathioprine) is a drug used often on humans for a variety of ills – rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, autoimmune hepatitis and prevention of rejection of donated organs. No special precautions are taken for others exposed to those who are taking this medicine. If your son can’t get over this on his own, he needs the help of a mental health professional. 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

FBI joins search for escaped Colo. inmate
Report cites controllers for midair crash
DENVER (AP) â€“ Authorities went doorto-door in small towns and rural areas Tuesday in pursuit of a Colorado inmate who broke out of a maximum-security prison in what was his fourth escape â€“ one of which included a ride down a river in an inner tube. Douglas J. Alward, 48, fled the Sterling Correction Facility on Sunday.
SAN DIEGO â€“ A failure by Navy air traffic controllers to follow standard procedures contributed to a midair collision that killed seven Coast Guard members and two Marines off Southern California last year, according to a Coast Guard report released Tuesday. Controllers at Naval Air Station North Island in Coronado failed to notify the pilot of a Coast Guard C-130 plane that four Marine helicopters were in the area.
HOUSTON â€“ Federal investigators probing the blowout that led to the Gulf oil spill grilled a Halliburton official Tuesday about concerns the petroleum services firm raised over the potential for a severe gas flow problem if a BP plan was used. Halliburton and BP were at odds over a key device, a centralizer, used as part of the process to plug a deepwater well like the oil giant was doing at the time of the disaster.

Free to eat whatever and whenever they choose, college students tend to put on the pounds
BY JIMMY TOMLIN ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER
or Andrew Faust, the “Freshman 15” was actually more like 10. Nonetheless, the phenomenon of freshmen gaining weight during their first year of college – the so-called “Freshman 15” – definitely applied to Faust, now a junior at High Point University. “I was away from home, so I wasn’t eating with my family – I wasn’t eating prepared meals – and I could just eat whatever I wanted,” he recalls. “I was snacking on things that were not so healthy – social snacking, like when I’m talking to friends – and I did a lot of snacking while I was studying. That was my biggest downfall.” A runner in high school, Faust was surprised at his weight gain, but acknowledges that his unhealthy snacking – coupled with a decrease in running and other physical activity – did him in. He’s not alone, of course. Nearly 70 percent of students put on pounds between the start of college and the end of their sophomore year, according to a study published in the Journal of American College Health. While the weight they gain is typically more like 8 pounds than 15, the phenomenon still exists, and the culprits are many. “The strongest factors are oncampus residency and decreased physical activity,” says Laura Buxenbaum, nutrition communications program manager for the Southeast United Dairy Industry Association. “Eating in the dining hall with those all-you-can-eat meal plans is a problem. I do think dining halls are getting much better at offering healthy options, but they still have pizza. Hectic schedules and social eating are problems, too, and one of the biggest culprits is late-night snacking. Students take in about 500 extra calories between 8 p.m.

Brandon Jones, an HPU senior from Cary, prepares to wolf down a couple of pieces of pizza. and 4 a.m. – I remember all those late-night pizzas – and the problem is that they’re not burning it off, they’re just going to sleep.” Other factors contributing to students’ weight gain include choosing unhealthy food options, not getting enough sleep, eating out of stress, skipping breakfast and bingeing on unhealthy foods, according to Lynda Noffsinger, director of counseling services at HPU. The key, Noffsinger says, is to eat moderately and exercise regularly. Buxenbaum agrees, pointing out that it’s important for students to eat nutrient-rich foods. “Nutrient-rich foods are going to provide more nutrition bang for your calorie bucks, so we suggest dairy foods like milk, cheese
and yogurt,” she says. She also recommends students stock their dorm rooms with healthy snacks, such as baby carrots, celery, hummus, fresh fruit, animal crackers, canned fruit, cereal and popcorn. The other part of the equation, of course, is exercise. “Walking or biking to class rather than taking the bus is a good idea,” Buxenbaum says. “Most colleges have gyms and wellness centers, and they offer classes like yoga and cardio kickboxing, which are a great way to keep weight down and reduce the stress that comes with your first year of college.” HPU offers those types of classes, as well as more than 20 intramural sports and at least that many club sports, according to Chris Dudley, vice president of administration at HPU. In addition, the school tries to emphasize healthy eating options at its 11 food service locations on campus, Dudley says. The school’s Just4U nutritional

program helps students identify healthy options, such as foods that are steamed, baked, fat-free or low-fat, whole-grain and/or salt-free. “Healthy options are among the most important and askedfor requests that we get from our students,” Dudley says, “so we’re very conscious of having healthy options, and we’re very receptive to providing them.” Still, it takes a conscious effort on the students’ part to choose those healthy options. Andrew Faust, who is now a resident assistant at HPU, says poor eating habits are common on campus, especially among freshmen. “I would say probably 50 to 60 percent of students struggle with this,” Faust says. “I mean, you have the freedom to eat whatever you want, and you have the freedom to not work out. If you’re not careful, it’s easy to gain weight.” firstname.lastname@example.org | 888-3579
Cooking chicken on the grill? Be careful. Poultry is still the leading culprit in food poisoning outbreaks, health officials said recently. Chicken, turkey and other poultry accounted for 17 percent of the food-borne illness outbreaks reported to the government. Beef and leafy vegetables were close behind, at 16 percent and 14 percent. The report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention covers outbreaks in 2007. Poultry was also the No. 1 source of outbreaks in 2006. Salmonella and other kinds of bacteria caused about half of the outbreaks, the CDC said. Viruses – such as norovirus – caused about 40 percent. For the CDC report, go to www. cdc.gov/mmwr.

Be concise about your plans; any form of embellishment will be viewed critically. ★★ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Do whatever it takes to appease the people you love. You may have to make a few changes at home. In the end, the only route to take is the one most practical and with the highest return. ★★★★★ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Make serious plans with someone who has the potential to help you change your life. What you are searching for is within reach if you are willing to take on a couple of additional responsibilities. A trip may be limiting but also very informative. ★★★ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A partnership can make a great deal of sense if you consider how it will help you long term. A change in your financial situation will be due to a sudden windfall or an unexpected settlement, rebate or contract. Take advantage of opportunities. ★★★ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Emotions will be difficult to deal with. Peers, colleagues and private matters will cause you to question your security and your future. Don’t complain; do the best job possible. ★★★ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Speak from the heart and you will find common ground when discussing home, family and financial matters. Change is required but first everyone involved has to be in agreement. A secret matter needs more consideration. ★★★★★ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Someone may use underhanded tactics to get you to do something. Make it clear what you are prepared to do before you commit to a plan. You will do well working by yourself. Do not mix business with pleasure or you will find it difficult to say no when you know you should. ★★ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Your head will lead you down one path and your heart another. Refrain from making a choice if you feel the least bit confused. Don’t let someone from your past mess with your mind. Only believe the facts you can verify. ★★★★ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You can get ahead if you make a couple of personal changes mentally, physically or financially. Love and romance look favorable and can help to raise your status and reputation. Consider a move that will lower your overhead and enhance a relationship. ★★★ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You’ll be emotionally tied to whatever and whoever you deal with, especially if it is a partnership. Look beyond the obvious. Don’t let anyone push a decision on you before you feel ready to make a change. ★★★

BRIDGE I’ve heard many characterizations of an expert. (One is that he is someone with a field of interest so narrow he can talk about a broken little finger but not about a little toe.) There are more-orless-serious definitions of a bridge expert. I’d say an expert never boots an easy contract. At seven hearts, South took the ace of diamonds and, without thinking, cashed the K-Q of trumps. When East showed up with 10-9-8-6, South couldn’t ruff a spade in his hand for his 13th trick; he took the king of diamonds and ruffed a diamond in dummy – and East overruffed.
DAILY QUESTION You hold: S K 2 H A J 3 2 D K 7 6 C K Q 10 5. The dealer, at your right, opens one spade. You double, and your partner bids two hearts. The opponents pass. What do you say? ANSWER: This decision is close. Though you have extra strength, your partner may be broke. He was obliged to respond to your double and promises no values. Since your kings, especially the king of spades, look well placed, a raise to three hearts is defensible. South dealer N-S vulnerable
ONE STAR: It’s best to avoid conflicts; work behind the scenes or read a good book. Two stars: You can accomplish but don’t rely on others for help. Three stars: If you focus, you will reach your goals. Four stars: You can pretty much do as you please, a good time to start new projects. Five stars: Nothing can stop you now. Go for the gold.
