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.


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 also will be a parking lot adjacent to the deck.

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. | 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 – 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) – 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 Obama’s plan, American forces will no longer conduct combat operations but are instead to focus on training Iraqi troops.

ISLAMABAD – 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.

MOGADISHU, Somalia (AP) – Islamist militants wearing Somali military uniforms stormed a hotel favored by lawmakers in the war-battered capital Tuesday, firing indiscriminately and killing 32 people, including six parliamentarians.

Experts spot tiny planet outside solar system GENEVA – Scientists say they’ve identified a sun-like star with as many as seven different planets – including one that might be the smallest ever found outside the solar system. If confirmed, the planetary system around HD 10180, a star more than 100 light years distant, would be the richest ever discovered. One astronomer says it’s part of a growing body of evidence that the universe is full of planets – and that a bunch of them could be similar to our own.

PAULA WILLIAMS: It’s time to head back to school. TOMORROW

Opinion Page Editor: Vince Wheeler (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.”

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?

eople always say that kids grow up fast. I guess that’s true, since now I’m all grown up and ready to start college. I’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 I’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 couldn’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 wouldn’t kill ourselves in the night, my mom and I decided to bunk the beds. With a herculean effort we prevailed – 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 – 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. (Don’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 I’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 ■■■ time that the cafeteria opened. Let’s just say we learned the caf’s schedule the hard way. And the list goes on – 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 I’m starting to think about. But these last few days haven’t contained only problems. I’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 – there are so many options that I just have to try! And even convocation wasn’t all bad; some school pride might be making its way into my heart – not to be sentimental or anything. So as I close my last column, I just want to let my readers know that I’m thankful for your support this year as I’ve made my journey to where I am now. I’ve liked hearing that many of you enjoyed my writing. There’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.

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: 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. | 888-3531

Mary Jane Akerman, chairwoman for the Thomasville Coalition on Alcohol and Drug Abuse, which is sponsoring the Family Fit and Fun Fair, talks about the upcoming event.

Thomasville agency hosts annual Fit and Fun Fair BY DARRICK IGNASIAK ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

THOMASVILLE – An event aimed at bringing families together and teaching families about the effects of substance abuse will be back for the fourth year this weekend. The fourth annual Family Fit and Fun Fair will be held from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday at the Thomasville PACE Community Park, 8 Memorial Park Drive. Admission is free with a canned food donation that will go to Cooperative Community Ministry. “It’s free,” Mary Jane Akerman, chairwoman for the Thomasville Coalition on Alcohol and Drug Abuse, said of the event. “It’s fun. 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.


What: Family Fit and Fun Fair. When: Saturday from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Where: Thomasville PACE Community Park, 8 Memorial Park Drive. Admission: Free with canned food donation.

“We appreciate the support of the community.” The event, hosted and created by the Thomasville Coalition on Alcohol and Drug Abuse, will consist of a drunken driving demonstration by the Thomasville Police Department, while the Thomasville Fire Department will be handing out safety information. The Thomasville Medical Center also will conduct a mini health fair, with blood pressure screenings, Akerman said.


New to the event will be a scavenger hunt, which will consist of teams of five, through downtown Thomasville, with the top team getting $500 to go to a favorite Thomasville charity. Teams are asked to wear some kind of uniform. Akerman said those wanting to participate in the scavenger hunt should call the Thomasville Parks and Recreation at 475-4280. The event also will consist of performances by the Thomasville High School marching band and the choir from Friendship Baptist Church. At 7 p.m., contemporary Christian music artist Shawn McDonald will be performing at the park’s amphitheater. “He is a well-recognized Christian artist that we have gotten as sort of the capstone for the evening,” Akerman said. “Last year, we had Phil Stacey, who was the American Idol finalist several years ago.” | 888-3657

Eden woman sentenced in cyclist’s death MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

GREENSBORO – 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 operator’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 Dawson’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 Dawson’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 “Saturday Night Live� and in the “Father of the Bride� franchise, married Dolman in 1980 after the pair met while working together in a production of “Godspell.� 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 SUV’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 didn’t knowingly hit Sherman. He said she admits that she reasonably should have known she hit someone but didn’t, in fact, know. Dawson didn’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&#x20AC;&#x201C; The State Board of Elections fined Gov. Beverly Perdueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign flights. The three Democrats voted against both options. The decision essentially ends the examination of Perdueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s flights.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;In my judgment, we had learned all that there was to learn. I did not see anything to be gained by an evidentiary hearing.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Larry Leake Board chairman â&#x20AC;&#x153;In my judgment, we had learned all that there was to learn.

crat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously, the campaign, as it related to airplanes, was not run in an efficient nor orderly fashion.â&#x20AC;? Perdue campaign spokesman Marc Farinella said the decision was reasonable and shows the board agreed with the campaignâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;t attend Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting in Asheville, said the campaign would pay the fine by the end of the day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For eight months now I have said repeatedly â&#x20AC;&#x201C; my campaign had a flawed system for recording flights, and we should have done a better job,â&#x20AC;? Perdue said in a statement.

Officials: Craigslist ad for teen girls is scam MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

SHELBY â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 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&#x20AC;&#x153;at least a dozen high school girls to work the kissing booth at the Cleveland County Fairâ&#x20AC;? and promised wages of

â&#x20AC;&#x153;up to $200 a day if you are cute.â&#x20AC;? But fair manager Calvin Hastings said thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no kissing booth planned for North Carolinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest county fair. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Good Lord, no,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There might be a cow down there that will give you some sugar, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as far as itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to go.â&#x20AC;? Hastings said the fair, which runs from Sept. 30 to Oct. 9 at the Cleveland County Fairgrounds in Shelby, offers â&#x20AC;&#x153;family entertainment.â&#x20AC;? A kissing booth wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be an appro-

priate attraction, he explained. The online ad stated that girls under 18 would need their parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; permission to work in the kissing booth. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t name a sponsoring group or provide a phone number-â&#x20AC;&#x201C; applicants were given an anonymous Craigslist e-mail address to request more information. The Cleveland County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t received any complaints about the kissing booth ad, Capt. Alan Norman said Tuesday.

Womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s longtime affair now brings her only pain


ear Abby: I met â&#x20AC;&#x153;Guyâ&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say no to him. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll go through periods where he says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s getting divorced. He even told my mom that. Then he calls and says theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to work it out. I never pushed. I want him to be happy â&#x20AC;&#x201C; even if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not with me â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and I want no part in causing a divorce. Every time I start to get over Guy, he comes around again. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be his mistress. If I tell his wife, Guy will never speak to me again. Should I tell her? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Runner-up in Cheyenne Dear Runner-up:

Whether youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  his marriage. Your first clue that Guy wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t much of a man should have been when he used voicemail to â&#x20AC;&#x153;break upâ&#x20AC;? seven years ago. He has now made it plain that he isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to leave his wife. Havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you recognized by now that he is concerned only with his own gratification and doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;m proud that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be able to provide the kind of life for my family that we have always wanted, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m set to begin training soon. We have begun spreading the news, and most of our relatives and friends share our excitement. My wifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sister, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lucin-

da,â&#x20AC;? however, is furious. Her objections started with snide little â&#x20AC;&#x153;jabsâ&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x2122;m afraid their relationship is on the verge of collapse. Should I bow to Lucindaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s threats or follow our dream and risk being disowned by a member of the family? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m afraid I have inadvertently ruined my wifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relationship with her sister. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Second Thoughts in Minnesota Dear Second Thoughts: Unless you want the remainder of your marriage and your career to be dictated by your wifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x201C; not to mention fascinating â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  high school football field. Mark operated the walk-behind Ditch Witch trencher. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be there. It was hard work in the Georgia summer heat, and I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t appreciate the value of serving others,â&#x20AC;? Mark admitted. But before long, his fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x153;I 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&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x153;Somehow it morphed from one security light to lighting up the entire downtown and tennis courts,â&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x2122;s word, Mark Baynes eventually incorporated music â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 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&#x20AC;&#x153;These 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&#x20AC;? Baynes said. PATTY JO SAWVEL is a freelance writer from Kernersville.

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&#x20AC;&#x201C; 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&#x20AC;&#x201C; 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&#x20AC;&#x201C; 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&#x20AC;&#x201C; 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.

‘Freshman 15’


Free to eat whatever and whenever they choose, college students tend to put on the pounds




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.” | 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.







LAST TRUMP South tossed away an easy 2210 points. He must take the king and then the ace of trumps. When West discards, South cashes the top spades, ruffs a spade, takes the jack of trumps and leads a club to dummy to draw East’s last trump. If West held four trumps, South could take the king of diamonds, safely ruff his diamond loser in dummy, cash the queen of trumps and reach his hand with a spade to draw trumps.

Drum up ways to handle your duties more efficiently, leaving more time to concentrate on what you want to do. Change is in the air, but you have to be the one to initiate what needs to be done. Forward thinking will lead to progress. Your numbers are 8, 17, 20, 23, 27, 39, 48 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Nothing will change if you aren’t the one to take action. Holding back and waiting will only add to your frustration. Let your intuition be your guide and your ambition your motivation. Love is on the rise. ★★★ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Consider what needs to be done before you pursue something that might be futile. Don’t waste time on nonsense or someone who will take advantage of you. Make a personal change if you feel passionate about it. ★★★★ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Careful what you say. You are likely to be taken literally, resulting in damage to a friendship or ruining an opportunity. 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.

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.

WINSTON-SALEM – Playing a home debut game in the Furniture City Gridiron Classic at Simeon Stadium on Saturday night instead of the usual confines of Bowman Gray Stadium doesn’t bother new Winston-Salem State football head coach Connell Maynor. “It’s not much different,” Maynor said. “It’s another football game and it’s 10 minutes up the road. We’re going to stay off campus for a couple of home games over here, so it’s just like a home game. We’ll get in the hotel and get in the bus and go over and play. We’re getting the High Point community involved and combined with our fans, there’s going to be a lot of red and white in the stands.” Maynor, who replaced long-

time coach Kermit Blount, is more concerned with getting off to a good start against Saturday opponent Virginia Union as he tries to turn around a proMaynor gram that athletics director Bill Hayes said “hit rock bottom” as it went 1-10 in 2009, the only win coming against Bethune-Cookman. “When you take over after a losing season, you’ve got to get everybody back and get their confidence up,” said Maynor, who left an assistant job at Fayetteville State to coach the Rams. “Getting off to a good start, beating Union, is the key. “You’ve got to get guys to buy into your system. We think we’ve got that part taken care of. They are paying the price. Once they start doing the little things



Furniture City Gridiron Classic: Winston-Salem State vs. Virginia Union, 7:30 p.m., at Simeon Stadium correctly, I think the wins will come.” To start the season, Maynor expects to rely on defense as he retools an offense that managed just 12.5 points and 212.3 yards per game on the Division I level against a schedule dominated by Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference teams. He is counting on the defense, which will work out of a 4-2-5 scheme, even though the Rams allowed 22.2 points and 300.4 yards per game last season. The opposition will be different, however, in the wake of WSSU dropping


back to Division II and rejoining the CIAA. “Defense has been our strong suit the past couple of years and I think it will be again,” Maynor said. The defense is much more settled than the offense. Maynor finally named UMass transfer Octavius Hawkins on Tuesday as the starting quarterback who will be in charge of an attack that will use multiple sets in an attempt to spread defenses thin. Hawkins was picked over two other transfers – Glenn product Jamie DeGeare from Appalachian and Cameron Smith of Navy – and freshman Vernon Brandon. “We’ve got a new system, a lot of new players and a new quarterback,” Maynor said. “It usually takes the offense longer to get going so we want to lean on our defense early.”

Junior defender Danniel Rosado of the High Point University women’s soccer team was named the Big South Conference Defensive Player of the Week, the league announced Tuesday. Rosado helped HPU to its first clean sheet of the season in a 1-0 win over Francis Marion on Friday. Rosado played a key role at center back for a defense that stopped several FMU opportunities and helped junior goalkeeper Andrea Ritchie face just two shots on net in the match. Rosado also contributed on the offensive side, delivering a free kick into the box that led to the game’s only goal from Becca Hemby to earn an assist. This is Rosado’s first honor and the first of the season for HPU. High Point returns to action on Friday, Aug. 27, when the team travels to N.C. State. | 888-3519

HPU favorite in Big South men’s soccer SPECIAL TO THE ENTERPRISE

ROCK HILL, S.C. – The High Point University men’s soccer team was picked first in the Big South preseason poll for the first time in school history and Panther junior forward Karo Okiomah was named preseason player of the year, the conference announced Tuesday. “We are very pleased with the selection. I believe it is a reflection of the hard work that we have put in as a program and our continued growth,” HPU coach Dustin Fonder said. “We are flattered that our peers think that highly of us. At the same time it does not really mean anything until you go out and play the games. We have eight conference games against difficult opponents and we hope to let the results speak for themselves.” High Point received four first-place votes and 73 out of a possible 81 points in the voting, edging Coastal Carolina and Winthrop, which tied for second with 68 points and received two first-place votes. Liberty came in at the No. 4 slot with one top nod and 50 points, followed by Radford with 42 points. Sixth was Gardner-Webb with 32 points and in seventh was UNC Asheville with 30 points. Presbyterian College was picked to finish at No. 8 with 23 points. VMI rounded out the voting with 19 points.

The Panthers posted their best finish in HPU’s Division I history Okiomah with a 9-72 overall mark in 2009. The Panthers also posted their best-ever league record with a 5-1-2 mark and finished second in the league, their highest in their 11-year history in the Big South. HPU returns 10 starters and five of its top six scorers from 2009. Okiomah was named third team All-South Atlantic Region by the NSCAA after playing in 16 games with 14 starts. He finished tied for the team lead in points with 14 and second on the team with five goals. The Austin, Texas, native finished the season strong with three goals and an assist in the final three games. He is the first High Point men’s soccer player ever selected as Preseason Player of the Year. “I am very happy for the team,” Okiomah said. “This is a great award and it shows how hard we have worked. I am proud to have been named Preseason Player of the Year, it was really unexpected. After I got out of class I gave my dad a call and just said “hey dad guess what,” and had a big smile on my face. I hope that I can live up the expectations.” HPU opens the season against Elon on Sept. 1.


Carolina Panthers quarterback Matt Moore (left) signs autographs before practice at the NFL football team’s training camp in Spartanburg, S.C., earlier this month.

Panthers hard to judge CHARLOTTE (AP) – So many signs in Carolina seemingly point to costcutting. Over 30? Making decent money? Chances are you were cut, traded or allowed to walk via free agency by the Panthers in the offseason. Nine starters from last year are gone, leaving 31-year-old Steve Smith as the oldest position player. Even the folks left over have little security. Coach John Fox is in the last year of his contract. So is starting quarterback Matt Moore, running back DeAngelo Williams, cornerback Richard Marshall and numerous other veterans. A year before a potential work stoppage, the team owned by the cochairman of the NFL committee responsible for labor negotiations is suddenly the league’s thirdyoungest team without stalwarts Julius Peppers, Jake Delhomme and Muhsin Muhammad.

But suggest to general manager Marty Hurney – himself with an uncertain contract situation – that the Panthers are shedding payroll ahead of a potential new NFL salary structure and he bristles. “We’ve said it over and over and over again: We made a decision to have young players,” Hurney said Thursday. “You have to make tough decisions. That’s the decision we made. We’ll see if our young players are ready.” That will define whether owner Jerry Richardson’s Panthers can rebound from last season’s disappointing 8-8 record and contend in the competitive NFC South. It will also determine if Fox, entering his ninth season, will be fired or become one of the NFL’s top coaching free agents. “We feel comfortable with the guys we have,” Fox insisted. “Obviously, we all liked and miss Jake. But there are other guys

– Muhsin Muhammad, Brad Hoover, a lot of guys – that have been a big part of this organization for some time. Now we’ve just got a younger bunch.” It starts with the 26year-old Moore, the laid back Californian who was promoted to starting quarterback after the Panthers released Delhomme. That wasn’t costcutting – the Panthers still owe Delhomme $12.7 million in guaranteed money – but a move made necessary by Delhomme’s 18 interceptions in a miserable 2009 season. Moore went 4-1 to close the year after Delhomme was injured. But all eight of his starts have come when the Panthers have been virtually eliminated from playoff contention. Moore’s grip on the starting job appeared perilous when Carolina drafted Jimmy Clausen of Notre Dame in the second round. But Moore has been far superior in camp.




he Atlantic Coast Conference football season is just around the corner. The first games kick off on Thursday, Sept. 2, as Presbyterian visits Wake Forest and Florida A&M travels to Miami. The majority of the conference opens two days later. To get you ready for all the ACC pigskin excitement, check out team previews of all 12 league members starting today in The High Point Enterprise.

We start with a look at Clemson, then feature another team each day until concluding with a preview of North Carolina on Sept. 4. For those who prefer a day-by-day list, the order will be Clemson, Miami, Florida State, Boston College, Georgia Tech and Maryland on Sunday, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Duke, Wake Forest, N.C. State and North Carolina. We purposely are concluding the previews with the Big Four schools. The other eight

run dates were determined completely at random. I put eight ACC team pencils in a glass, closed my eyes and let fate do the rest. This season promises to be another wild, wacky ride to the ACC championship game on Dec. 4 in Charlotte. Good luck to all league teams and their fans and let the previews begin!

Spillerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s influence remains at Clemson CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; C.J. Spiller is in the NFL, no longer suiting up in Clemsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s locker room. At least not physically. The influence, however, of the former Tigers standout on Clemsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s upcoming season remains as strong as if he were still running around campus. â&#x20AC;˘Spillerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s backups from last year, Andre Ellington and Jamie Harper, cite the lessons they learned watching the older running back prepare. â&#x20AC;˘Safety DeAndre McDaniel, a likely early round NFL pick had he come out, followed Spillerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s example and returned for his senior year. â&#x20AC;˘Quarterback Kyle Parker remembers all the hours Spiller logged studying film that paid enormous dividends for the ACCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s player of the year.

A. Ward retires RALEIGH (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Aaron Ward, a member of three Stanley Cup championship teams, is retiring from the NHL after 13 seasons. Ward announced his retirement in a statement released through the NHL Players Association on Tuesday. Ward spent most of last season with the Carolina Hurricanes, where he won the Stanley Cup in 2006. He was traded in March to Anaheim. The 37-year-old Ward was also a member of Detroitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back-to-back Cup teams in 1997 and 1998. According to the NHLPA release, Ward had a third knee surgery after the season and wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have been ready for the start of next year.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I took note of that,â&#x20AC;? Parker said. Now, Parker and the Tigers hope to continue the successful legacy Spiller left. Clemson won its first ACC Atlantic Division last fall played in the league championship game, the closest its come to the top since its last conference crown in 1991. To take the next step, Tigers coach Dabo Swinney will have to find capable replacements in several offensive areas, not just the backfield. Defensively, former T.W. Andrews star Marcus Gilchrist has moved from safety to cornerback. The senior started every game last season and ranked second on the team with 71 tackles. He recorded four games with 10 or more stops, but this season will be counted on

age as one of the starting corners. Receiver Jacoby Ford caught 56 passes for 779 yards and six touchdowns last season and, with a 4.28 second time in the 40-yard dash, was a game-breaking, field stretcher for Clemson. Michael Palmer set a school record with 43 receptions, the most ever caught by a Tiger tight end. Thomas Austin was a linchpin for the offensive line the last several seasons. Swinney understands it may take trial and error to find players to match last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s production.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;This group here is completely different. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to erase that white board and start drawing a new picture,â&#x20AC;? offensive coordinator Billy Napier said. The new picture starts with Ellington and Harper, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve spent the past two seasons waiting to get their chance. Ellington, a sophomore, is shifty and explosive like Spiller. Harper is a bigger back who has speed to outrun defenders. Spiller may have gain the highlights, but it was Ellington who was the team leader in yardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s per rush and Harp-

er who had Clemsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s longest run from scrimmage. Swinney said both are eager to prove what they can do. They combined for more than 900 yards rushing and eight touchdowns in limited work a year ago. At tight end, 6-foot-4 Dwayne Allen figures to pick up where Palmer left off as Parkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s safety valve. However, the biggest offensive question could be at wide receiver. Seniors Terrence Ashe and Xavier Dye have the most experience, yet managed only 25 catches over 14 games.

Wheatmore makes history E THE PREP FOOTBALL NOTEBOOK:

ugene Everhart said all the right things in the preseason after his Wheatmore Warriors went 0-11 and were outscored 574-32 in their first year of existence. His players were working hard. The team would be fighting for wins. Moral victories wouldn’t be enough this fall. Still... “A good friend of mine went to work at a new program and I talked to him,” Everhart said. “Last year went like he told me it would. He said the second year, don’t expect to win a game, just expect to be competitive at halftime in some of them. “We were happy to beat that SPORTS prediction.” And how. Wheatmore exploded Steve to a 33-18 win over South DavidHanf son in Friday’s season-opener, ■■■ throttling the team that it lost to 53-6 in its debut one year ago. The Warriors scored first on Andrew Bazen’s 42-yard fumble return, took a 20-12 lead into halftime after a pair of Josh Rickert scoring runs and – just as importantly – won the third quarter 6-0 before finishing off the Wildcats in the fourth. “They were very excited at halftime, but we made sure they understood that we had 24 minutes still to play,” Everhart said. “We made sure we refocused, told them ‘nobody will ever remember what the halftime score was.’ We had to come back and finish.” Rickert finished off South with 193 yards and four TDs on 34 carries, but everybody in the stadium starred on this night. “Our students were so excited, I think they were on the field before I was. All I did was answer e-mails all day Saturday,” Everhart said with a laugh. “It’s just a great feeling. It’s been a while in coming. We thought our kids really showed a lot of character hanging in there (last year) despite all the bad outcomes.” Next up is a trip to Providence Grove this week. Everhart said his team enjoyed the weekend but got right back to work Monday. “It doesn’t matter what we did Friday. Every week begins anew,” Everhart said. It just so happens this one began with Wheatmore owning a 1-0 record. Congratulations, Warriors, for making history and avoiding the infamy that so often befalls new programs.

BISON GET DEFENSIVE High Point Central returned several stars on both sides of the ball this year. The defensive guys got a jump-start over the offense in Friday’s 27-24 win over R.J. Reynolds. “Offensively we kind of shot ourselves in the foot early,” Bison coach Wayne Jones said. “The defense bailed us out numerous times throughout the night: three-and-out, defense go intercept a pass and give it right back to us. They did an excellent job.” Central got interceptions from Johnathan White, Lashuran Monk, Tyreek Sparks, Aaron Leach and Cody Wilson. White also forced a

Reynolds on Friday. fumble and later found the end zone, forcing a 21-all tie at the end of the third quarter with his 50-yard interception return. Sparks’ pick also set up Central’s first offensive touchdown after he took the ball to the 10-yard line. All told, Central’s defense allowed just 36 rushing yards and 187 through the air. Reynolds’ 24 points included a field goal in overtime – after getting the ball at the 10 – and touchdowns in regulation following a fumble by the Bison offense and a bad snap deep in Central territory. The defense shouldn’t have to work quite so hard in the coming weeks. “It’s just little things on offense where we can make ourselves better,” Jones said. “Coachable things the kids aren’t doing right now.”

BISHOP GETS CREATIVE Bishop McGuinness played the role of villain perfectly in High Point Christian Academy’s varsity football debut, but at least hand it to the Villains for finding creative ways to score. Bishop only ran 30 offensive plays in the 50-0 victory Friday, but ended up in the end zone six different ways. Marty DeFrancesco Jr. scored on a 46-yard run, 70-yard reception, 55-yard punt return and 85-yard kick return. Jared Pluciniczak also scored on a kick return while tacking on two points for a safety. Peter Fields recovered one of his teammates’ fumbles in the end zone for another six points. Remarkably, the Villains also had an interception return for a TD to celebrate before a flag brought it back. What was Bishop’s secret to success Friday? “We have very good speed this year and all of the broken-field plays – interceptions, punt returns, even rushing the punter – can lead to big plays,” coach Charlie Jones said. | 888-3526

Hospitalized players released PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – The final two McMinnville High School football players hospitalized with mysterious arm ailments have been released from the hospital. Two dozen football players were sent to the Willamette Valley Medical Center last week following a workout that left the athletes with a rare ailment known as compartment syndrome. Three of the players needed surgery to relieve pressure caused by swelling. What caused so many players to develop the medical problem is unknown. Blood tests due in the coming days will determine whether they ingested creatine.

Home sales hit 15-year low WASHINGTON (AP) – Sales of previously occupied homes plunged last month to the lowest level in 15 years, despite the lowest mortgage rates in decades and bargain prices in many areas. July’s sales fell by more than 27 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 3.83 million, the National Association of Realtors said Tuesday. It was the largest monthly drop on records dating back to 1968, and sharp declines were recorded in all regions of the country. The plunge in home sales also magnified fears about the broader economy. “The housing market is



McDonald’s names first global chief OAK BROOK, Ill. – McDonald’s Corp. said Tuesday it named Steve Easterbrook, current CEO of its U.K. division and president of Northern Europe operations, to the newly created role of global chief brand officer. The world’s largest burger chain said Easterbrook will oversee marketing, menu innovation, consumer insights and other brand assets. Easterbrook, a 16-year McDonald’s veteran, assumes the post Sept. 1.

Oil prices sink on weak economy NEW YORK – Oil prices sank again on Tuesday after a disappointing report on home sales underlined the slow economic recovery and weak demand for oil and gas. Benchmark crude for October delivery fell $1.10 to $72 a barrel in morning trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

Barnes & Noble posts quarterly loss NEW YORK – Barnes & Noble Inc. posted a first-quarter loss on legal expenses related to its proxy fight with a major shareholder, the struggling book seller said Tuesday. The company cut its annual earnings outlook on the costs related to fighting billionaire financier Ron Burkle. The largest U.S. traditional book seller said it lost $62.5 million, or $1.12 per share, in quarter ending July 31. ENTERPRISE NEWS SERVICE REPORTS


undermining the already faltering wider economic recovery,” said Paul Dales, U.S. economist with Capital Economics. “With the increasingly inevitable double-dip in prices yet to come, things could yet get a lot worse.” Sales were particularly weak among homes in the lower- to mid-priced ranges. For example, in the Midwest, homes priced between $100,000 and $250,000 tumbled nearly 47 percent. The weakness follows a strong spring, when nowexpired government tax credits sparked sales, especially among first-time buyers of lower-priced homes. The tax credits caused

many of those buyers to speed up their home purchases. Sales have weakened since the credits expired on April 30. As sales have slowed, the inventory of unsold homes on the market grew to nearly 4 million in July. That’s a 12.5month supply at the current sales pace, the highest level in more than a decade. It compares with a healthy level of about six months. One reason the market is hurting is that buyers and sellers are in a standoff over prices. Many sellers are reluctant to lower their prices, and buyers are hesitating because they think home prices haven’t bottomed out.

US steps up probe of Corollas WASHINGTON (AP) – U.S. safety regulators have stepped up their investigation into complaints of stalled engines on Toyota Corolla sedans and Matrix hatchbacks, but government officials stopped short of announcing a recall. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration upgraded its investigation last week and is looking at two possible causes behind the stalling: Improper coating on circuit boards and a crack in the surface of a glass coating. Both could have happened during production of the cars. The new probe, called an engineering analysis, covers 1.8 million Corolla and Matrix cars from model years 2005 to 2007. It is a more in-depth investigation of the vehicles than the preliminary probe be-

gun by NHTSA in December. That probe covered vehicles from the 2006 model year only. NHTSA said it has received 163 complaints of stalling engines in the cars as of last week. Toyota spokeswoman Monika Saito in Tokyo confirmed the NHTSA investigation. She said Toyota was cooperating fully but declined to give more details. It was unclear whether a recall will be necessary, though the engineering analysis will determine if there is a safety defect that needs to be fixed. A problem with the Corolla, one of Toyota’s top-selling models, would further embarrass the Japanese automaker, which has long prided itself on its quality controls.

AGs want Craigslist to drop adult services HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) – State attorneys general nationwide are demanding that Craigslist remove its adult services section because they say the website cannot adequately block potentially illegal ads. Several attorneys general, including Connecticut, Ohio and Missouri, announced Tuesday that they have sent a joint letter calling on the classified advertising website to get rid of its adult services category. A total of

17 states are involved. The attorneys general say Craigslist is not completely screening out ads that promote prostitution and child trafficking. The site creators pledged in 2008 to improve their policing efforts. Other states joining the effort are Arkansas, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Maryland, Michigan, Montana, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.

Housing data drives stocks down NEW YORK (AP) – Stocks fell for a fourth day after another disappointing report on housing deepened worries that the economic recovery could be fading. Bond yields fell as investors sought out more stable investments. The Dow Jones industrial average lost 134 points Tuesday following news that sales of previously occupied homes fell last month to their lowest level in 15 years. The Dow dipped briefly below 10,000 for the first time in seven weeks and has now lost 375 points since its four-day slump began. The yield on the two-year Treasury note reached another record low as cautious investors piled back into the bond market. “Without a boost in job creation, (buyers) just won’t have the confidence to step in and buy a new home,” David Katz, principal at Weiser Capital Management said. Other world markets also fell. Japanese stocks led the way lower, falling more than 1 percent as the yen hit a fresh 15-year high against the dollar. Japan’s economy relies heavily on exports, so a stronger yen hurts the profits of major Japanese companies. Stocks have been sliding in recent days as investors focus on signs that economic growth is slowing.

Fantasia denies homewrecker claim

Burger King income, sales slip CHICAGO (AP) – Burger King Holdings Inc.’s fourth-quarter net income fell nearly 17 percent as sales slipped and costs for ingredients and packaging climbed. The fast-food chain said Tuesday that it earned $49 million, or 36 cents per share during the period that ended in late June. That compares to last year’s net income of $58.9 million, or 43 cents per share. The company also got a smaller tax benefit than last year. Revenue slipped 1 percent to $623 million. The earnings beat Wall Street forecasts, but revenue fell short. Analysts surveyed by Thomson Reuters expected the company to earn 34 cents

NEW YORK – Fantasia said she was so upset about allegations that she broke up a marriage she was ready to die. “I felt like if that would have happened, I would have been fine with that – I would have been OK with that,” she said in an interview Monday, nearly two weeks after she attempted suicide.


Customers enjoy a meal at a Burger King in Springfield, Ill., on Monday. per share with revenue of $635 million. The earnings were “better-than-feared” while revenue was sluggish, R.W. Baird analyst David E. Tarantino told investors in a research note. Sales at restaurants open at least a year slid for the fifth consecutive quarter. That key indicator of a restaurant chain’s performance excludes growth at stores that

open or close during the year. The measure fell 0.7 percent around the globe and 1.5 percent in the U.S. and Canada. While the declines weren’t as steep as those recorded in previous quarters, Burger King continued to lag its bigger competitor, McDonald’s Corp. Burger King has been particularly vexed by the economic downturn as layoffs and high unem-

ployment hurt its core demographic of young men. It’s tried to compensate by expanding its menu with items that appeal to both budget-conscious customers and those willing to spend more. On Tuesday, the company said that effort is showing some success as customers in North America bought its $1 menu items like a breakfast muffin and a double cheeseburger.

Johnson & Johnson gets FDA warning TRENTON, NJ. (AP) – A Johnson & Johnson business that makes joint replacements has been warned by the Food and Drug Administration that it is illegally marketing two products. The FDA notified Johnson & Johnson’s DePuy Orthopaedics Inc. that it is selling one product that was never approved for sale and is selling another product for uses that have not been specifically approved. In a letter to the company, the FDA wrote that DePuy is marketing its Corail Hip System for two unapproved uses, and promoting those uses in an online brochure. The agency also stated that it never

approved the TruMatch Personalized Solution System. It uses software and high-tech CT scanning technology to create a detailed, 3-D view of a patient’s knee so a surgeon can properly position a knee implant. The FDA has told DePuy, which is based in Warsaw, Ind., to stop selling the hip system for unapproved uses and to provide information that would be needed for the agency to approve the TruMatch system. “The FDA will evaluate the information you submit and decide whether your product may be legally marketed,” stated the letter. In a statement, DePuy said it is “re-

viewing the letter to understand the FDA’s concerns and will respond to their request for information.” The FDA’s warning letter, addressed to DePuy President David Floyd, was posted on the agency’s website on Tuesday. The letter is dated Aug. 19. It is signed by Timothy A. Ulatowski, director of the Office of Compliance in the FDA center that oversees medical devices. It states that the Corail Hip System is approved for total hip replacement in patients with six specific types of damage to the hip. But a brochure on DePuy website claims the system can be used for treating two other conditions, according to the FDA.
