President’s plea inspires kids across the nation. 5A BY PAUL B. JOHNSON ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – T. Wingate Andrews High School student D.J. Tucker summed up his thoughts succinctly after hearing President Barack Obama’s national address to students beamed into his classroom Tuesday. “Education makes dreams come true,” Tucker said as he and his fellow students discussed the president’s address among themselves and with their teacher. Civics teacher John Shearin took advantage of the president’s speech – simulcast on the Internet as Obama appeared at Wakefield High School in Arlington, Va. – to teach his students about the duties and responsibilities of the nation’s highest office. Shearin used examples from the presidencies of Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton to show how the White House can exercise influence in areas from diplomacy and economic strategy to the pardoning of prisoners and appointment of Cabinet officials. Though Obama’s speech was tinged by controversy, as conservative critics said the president aimed to indoctrinate students with liberal points of view, the

Parents of students in Guilford County Schools were given the option of allowing their children to opt out of President Barack Obama’s national education address Tuesday. The number of students who opted out ranged from a high of 49 at Monticello Brown Summit Elementary School to a low of no students skipping the speech at several schools, a school system public relations representative said. most pressing problem with his noontime speech involved technical glitches. The Internet video reception in the Andrews classroom was spotty at best, meaning that much of the time the 30 students took in the president’s remarks as an audio event only. After Obama’s speech, which focused on the importance of education and determination, the racially mixed class of white, black and Hispanic teenagers discussed what the president wanted to impart to them. With Shearin guiding them through questions, the students expressed what they gleaned from the president’s remarks – work hard and stay in school, finish academic assignments on time, learn from mistakes and don’t make excuses and fail to achieve.

School board approves budget

AT A GLANCE The school board approved in May a $651 million budget that kept county operational support at $175 million. The district has been operating with an interim budget since June so school officials could pay the bills.

for a drop in membership in the late 1980s. In about the past five years, membership has risen, and last year about 12,000 young people in Guilford County participated in 4-H. The recent increase in members may be due to extension agents collaborating with more outside agencies, Lewis said. Most recently, extension agents noticed an increased interest in gardening. “Maybe with the economy, people are going back to their roots,” Lewis said.

GUILFORD COUNTY – The waiting list of families with children who need day care but can’t afford it could be getting shorter.

$34 million, but legislators raised some taxes and cut some programs to balance the budget. State funds make up 60 percent of the district’s budget. Green also wants to keep about $3 million in reserve in case state officials require reversions. Last year, the district returned $2 million to meet Gov. Bev Perdue’s budget goals and $3.8 million before she took office to comply with an order from thenGov. Mike Easley. Amounts are calculated from average daily memberships. “We have had these reversions before, and we also had increased expenses for fuel and energy,” said Sharon Ozment, district financial officer.

“We are dealing with the fallout from that,” said Chairman Alan Duncan. Several board members wanted to move as much money as possible to classrooms to pay for more teachers where needed. “Schools are not being made whole, but they are getting additional money,” Green said. “We have substantially cut administrative personnel and we need to restore some of them to help the schools.” Overall, schools will get 81 percent of the budget and administration 19 percent. That’s up 1 percent for the schools from previous budget versions, Green said. dnivens@hpe.com | 888-3626

HIGH POINT – A High Point man was killed in a singlevehicle traffic accident when the car he was driving ran off a city street Monday night. Joseph Steven Varga, 78, of Ryley Court, died at the scene of the crash at Homestead Avenue and Westchester Drive about 8:30 p.m., according to High Point police. Varga was driving a white 1992 Mazda sedan north on Westchester Drive toward N. Main Street when the car crossed the southbound lanes, left the roadway and struck a utility pole at a high rate of speed, police said. The car, which was traveling an estimated 60 mph, also struck several trees before coming to rest. The speed limit on that part of Westchester Drive is 45 mph. Varga, who was the only occupant of the car, was pronounced dead at the scene by Guilford County EMS units. No other vehicles were involved in the accident. A police accident report said Varga had medical complications that may have contributed to the crash.

Afghan recount ordered because of fraud charges KABUL (AP) – A U.N.backed commission found “convincing evidence” of fraud Tuesday in Afghanistan’s presidential election and ordered a recount of suspect ballots in at least three provinces, a process that could take months. At the same time, Afghan officials released new returns that give President Hamid Karzai 54 percent of the vote with nearly all ballots tallied, enough to avoid a run-off unless large numbers of tainted ballots are ultimately thrown out. The separate announcements from the complaints commission, which is dominated by U.N.-appointed Westerners, and the election commission, which is filled with Karzai appointees, could set the stage for a showdown.

One roadside bomb struck a patrol in southern Baghdad, killing one American soldier. A short time later, another bomb targeting a patrol in northern Iraq killed three U.S. soldiers, the military said. With the deaths, six U.S. troops have been killed this month.

Obama’s speech inspires some kids

AP

Gethchine Dhaiti, 9, a fourth-grader at Hope-Centennial Elementary School in West Palm Beach, Fla., cheers as President Barack Obama speaks via television, Tuesday morning in West Palm Beach, Fla.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) – On the very first day of the school year, 12-yearold Mileena Rodriguez was reminded by President Barack Obama himself that hard work can take you places. Mileena listened to Obama’s plea to study hard and stay in school Tuesday, watching along with several of her classmates at Thurgood Marshall Elementary School and students across the country. For all the hubbub among adults over the backto-school speech, many

Fines proposed for going without health insurance

WASHINGTON (AP) – Americans would be fined up to $3,800 for failing to buy health insurance under a plan that circulated in Congress on Tuesday as divisions among Democrats undercut President Barack Obama’s effort to regain traction on his health care overhaul. As Obama talked strategy with Democratic leaders at the White House, the one idea that most appeals to his party’s liberal base lost ground in Congress. Prospects for a government-run plan to compete with private insurers sank as a leading moderate Democrat said he could no longer support the idea. The fast-moving developments put Obama in a box. As a candidate, he opposed fines to force individuals to buy

11 end lives under assisted suicide law

SEATTLE (AP) – Eleven people have used prescribed drugs to end their lives during the first six months after a Washington state law took effect allowing assisted suicides for terminally ill patients, an advocacy group said Tuesday. Another five people received life-ending drugs under the law but died without using them, the group Compassion & Choices of Washington said. The deaths amount to less than one-tenth of 1 percent of all deaths statewide in 2008, indicating the law is being used carefully and sparingly, Robb Miller, executive director of the group, said at a Tuesday news conference.

Space shuttle undocks from space station

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) – Space shuttle Discovery and its seven astronauts pulled away from the international space station on Tuesday and headed home, leaving tons of fresh supplies behind as well as a new face. The shuttle is due back on Earth on Thursday. “We’re pretty fat with supplies now thanks to you,” called out space station astronaut Michael Barratt. “God speed you on your way home.”

health insurance, and he supported setting up a public insurance plan. On Tuesday, fellow Democrats publicly begged to differ on both ideas. Democratic congresReid sional leaders put on a bold front as they left the White House after their meeting with the president. “We’re re-energized; we’re ready to do health care reform,” said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., insisted the public plan is still politically viable. “I believe that a public option will be essential to our passing a bill in the House of Representatives,” she said.

youngsters took the president’s message to heart. “He said that we’re the future, and he’s right,” said Mileena, who wants to be a forensic scientist. In his speech, Obama used examples from his own life to urge students to study hard. He told them to stop chasing dreams of being athletes or reality TV stars. Schools were not required to show the speech, and the White House posted an advance transcript on its Web site on Monday.

Humans can’t live in harmony like bees

In response to Charles Baker (Your View, Aug. 26, “Will we allow America to become a bee colony?”), it would be nice to live like the bees do. Unfortunately, we don’t know how to live in harmony as they do. They live by instinct. Humans live by greed. Humans are separated from all creatures by only one thing, they have a mind. By instinct, when bees get sick and old, out they go. It appeared that was the intent of some parts of the health care bill. This world will never live in harmony because we won’t live by the Ten Commandments. We need the elderly’s wisdom as much as they need the young’s strength. That is what separates us from all creatures. Someone once said it was the elderly people’s duty to die. Suppose that person’s parents had thought that way when that person was about to be born. About the only good thing we

PTSD is rising among veterans of World War II The Department of Veterans’ Affairs announced in July that one in 20 of the nation’s 2.5 million survivors of World War II are now discovering they have post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). It most likely stems from fear. PTSD affects persons who have been traumatized in some manner – war, rape, kidnapping, etc. The most common is war. The reason persons in their 80s are now feeling the effects is that their generation was taught to suppress emotions. The results of PTSD can be anger, rage, depression, anxiety attacks, suicide, withdrawal – and the list goes on. It’s only been in the past few years that my 84-year-old dad has taken advantage of services provided by the VA. We’ve learned

they have a world-class school for the blind in Augusta, have access to service dogs for persons with visual and hearing impairments and can provide assistance to keep elderly veterans in their homes, an option for persons who cannot afford expensive assisted living care. So if you know of a World War II vet who is experiencing unexplained crying spells, a feeling of loss with no reason, worthlessness and depression, call the Veterans Affairs office.

dds are it’s not fast enough for the Elm Towers residents who have been denied the chance to hold worship services for several weeks. But the High Point Housing Authority is making headway in developing a formal policy on allowing meetings in common areas at Elm Towers and other housing authority properties. And over the Labor Day weekend, housing authority officials finally decided to allow residents to resume reserving the facility’s community room for gatherings – such as worship services – in the interim until the formal policy is reviewed and adopted. Late last week, prior to the holiday weekend, authority officials told the Enterprise that previously unscheduled events at Elm Towers were not being allowed while the policy was being developed. We hope – and expect – that it will not be long before the housing authority staff and board complete their work on this formal policy and it goes into effect. It’s unfortunate that the absence of such a formal policy came to light only after this controversy over residents being prohibited from holding Christian religious services. But it has served to clarify that common areas in public housing facilities are there to be of use to residents and guests, whether for religious gatherings or other meetings of interest for residents. This incident also has helped raise discussion again about use of public facilities for religious purposes. And the verdict here is that public areas can be used for religious purposes under rules and guidelines of a formal policy. We say that any religious group, not just mainstream Christian groups, should be allowed the opportunity to worship in the common area if such meetings can be scheduled and rules and regulations followed. And that’s as it should be in a nation that respects freedom of religion.

What Obama says is not as important as what he does

T

he most important thing about what anyone says are not the words themselves but the credibility of the person who says them. The words of convicted swindler Bernie Madoff apparently were quite convincing to many people who were regarded as knowledgeable and sophisticated. If you go by words, you can be led into anything. No doubt millions of people will be listening to the words of President Barack Obama tonight when he makes a televised address to a joint session of Congress on his medical care plans. But, if they think that the words he says are what matters, they can be led into something much worse than being swindled out of their money. One plain fact should outweigh all the words of Obama and all the impressive trappings of the setting in which he says them: He tried to rush Congress into passing a massive government takeover of the nation’s medical care before the August recess – for a program that would not take effect until 2013! Whatever President Obama is, he is not stupid. If the urgency to pass the medical care legislation was to deal with a problem immediately, then why postpone the date when the legislation goes into effect for years – more specifically, until the year after the next presidential election? If this is such an urgently needed program, why wait for years to put it into effect? And if the public is going to benefit from this, why not let them experience those benefits before the next presidential election? If it is not urgent that the legislation goes into effect immediately, then why don’t we have time to go through the normal process of holding Congressional hearings on the pros and cons, accompanied by public discussions of its innumerable provisions? If we do not believe that the president is stupid, then what do we believe? The only reasonable alternative seems to be that he wanted to get this massive government takeover of medical care passed into law before the public understood what was in it. Moreover, he wanted to get re-elected in 2012 before the public experienced what its actual consequences would be.

Unfortunately, this way of doing things is all too typical of the way this administration has acted on a wide range of issues. Consider the “stimulus” legislation. Here the administration was successful in rushing a massive spending bill through Congress in OPINION just two days – after which it sat on the president’s desk for three Thomas days, while he was away on vacaSowell tion. But, like the medical care leg■■■ islation, the “stimulus” legislation takes effect slowly. The Congressional Budget Office estimates that it will be September 2010 before even three-quarters of the money will be spent. Some economists expect that it will not all be spent by the end of 2010. What was the rush to pass it, then? It was not to get that money out into the economy as fast as possible. It was to get that money – and the power that goes with it – into the hands of the government. Power is what politics is all about. The worst thing that could happen, from the standpoint of those seeking more government power over the economy, would be for the economy to begin recovering on its own while months were being spent debating the need for a “stimulus” bill. The proliferation of White House “czars” in charge of everything from financial issues to media issues is more of the same circumvention of the public and of the Constitution. Czars don’t have to be confirmed by the Senate, the way Cabinet members must be, even though czars may wield more power, so you may never know what these people are like, until it is too late. What Barack Obama says tonight is not nearly as important as what he has been doing – and how he has been doing it.

Clinging to some of that ’50s innocence is good

THREE VIEWS

---

I

t is no question that over the decades words have found new meaning, standards have been both lowered and heightened and hemlines to dresses have been drastically reduced. The true questions here are just how much has society changed from the white picket fence and stay-at-homemom era of the 1950s, and has it changed for the better or the worse? Instead of classic shows such as “I Love Lucy� and “The Brady Bunch,� we are watching “MTV Cribs� and “The Real World Cancun.� It has become harder and harder to produce interesting television because it seems today the world has seen and heard it all. The wholesome family and the ditsy wife TV shows are no longer enough to hold the attention of America. The things that would be found appalling and immediately rejected in the 1950s are the very things that are broadcast on our televisions and replayed constantly for our entertainment. Moreover, the meaning of “funny� has altered as well. Knock-knock jokes no longer rouse the intended chuckle, and a comedian without profanity in his act is actually labeled a “Clean Comedian.� Jokes with a dirty plot seem to hold the most attention and even produce the hardest laugh. It’s not so much the media transformation as it is the difference in us, the people themselves. We idolize celebrities that get into drunken brawls and resent the hardworking parents that love us. Today, it is almost accepted that, at some point in a parent’s life, he or she will have to listen to their children proclaiming “I

hate you.� When times were simpler and teenagers were a tad easier to please, such a thing would have been shocking, TEEN VIEW and unheard of. It hardly Hailey seems fair to Hendrix compare the ■■■ 1950s to 2009, especially since I’m a teenager, and have only known of the 1950s through hearsay, but it does appear to me that they are like night and day. While there have been amazing advances that make for opportunities for my generation, especially for women, still, I imagine that back then certain things – such as sex, for example – were more private, more sacred and more highly valued. Finding someone today who openly respects their elders is more difficult, yet finding someone who deals drugs can be as easy as walking a few paces. Finally, no one would dispute the enormous differences between the 1950s and our current world. And why would a teenager long for those days when all seemed pure and innocent? Maybe because I am reacting to the lack of stability around me, maybe because I feel I’ve idealized the 1950s and yearn for a time of incorruptibility that was present then and maybe because I don’t want this to be lost forever to our society, because I think that some innocence is important for humanity. Teen View columnist HAILEY HENDRIX is a sophomore at High Point Central High School.

Perdue should release report step further and release the recent internal investigation related to how some travel records of her predecessor were lost. State officials cite laws protecting the privacy of personnel records in declining to release the report. When pressed further, Perdue said she didn’t believe she had the legal authority to release the report. The administration has also been told that state

law allows the release of otherwise private information in instances where an agency’s integrity is in question and it would be in the best interest of the public. Certainly, an investigation about missing travel records of the former government is central to the state’s integrity. Making that investigation more transparent would go a long way toward restoring that integrity.

From Sun Journal of New Bern, Aug. 28 Gov. Bev Perdue should reconsider her decision not to release the report on an internal investigation into missing travel records of former Gov. Mike Easley. Perdue has made open government and transparency a key part of her agenda since assuming office in January. For example, her administration has undertaken an effort to put all government contracts of $10,000 or more on the Internet by the end of the year. That allows anyone with access to the Internet the opportunity to see how much of state government is spending. She has parted with policies that her predecessor had in place in favor of open government. Perdue has made much progress toward open government. Now she needs to go a

BOSTON – Rep. Michael Capuano of Massachusetts says he’s taken out nomination papers and will announce next week whether he’ll join the race to succeed Edward Kennedy in the U.S. Senate. The six-term Democratic congressman said Tuesday that of any candidates mentioned so far, he most closely mirrors Kennedy’s positions on issues of war and peace. Capuano is the second member of Congress to draw nomination papers. Rep. Stephen Lynch did so last week.

DNA sample at issue in Wisconsin slayings

MILWAUKEE – Police investigating a string of cold-case slayings identified their prime suspect after obtaining DNA from his toothbrush late last month, but investigators should have had a sample from him eight years earlier. Two state agencies are now disputing whether the sample – mandated by state law – was taken, and if so, what happened to it. Walter E. Ellis of Milwaukee, arrested Saturday in connection with the deaths of nine women, was in prison from 1998 to 2001, which meant a state law enacted in 2000 should have applied to him.

The contractor, Adam Hermanson, 25, died Sept. 1, his wife, Janine, said Tuesday. She added that a military medical examiner told her that preliminary findings indicate her husband died from low voltage electrocution.

Council backs plan for loan pool BY PAT KIMBROUGH ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – The High Point City Council gave its blessing Tuesday to a proposal aimed at steering development to Core City areas. During its regular meeting, the council authorized city staff to submit an application for a federal loan that will be combined with private money to establish a small business loan pool for investors in Core City districts. City officials said the

pool could reach about $9.7 million and would be available for new and existing small business investments. “I know our board is in complete support of this,” said Aaron Clinard, Core City board chairman. “I think it’s a very safe and secure method to ensure that we can attract development in the Core City. ... It’s been a tried-and-true method in other parts of the state.” The city will seek about $3.9 million from the U.S. Department of

Housing and Urban Development, and officials hope several banks will contribute the rest of the amount. Officials said the program has been successful in helping revive downtown areas in cities like Greensboro and Fayetteville and that the lenders have a strong track record of getting their money back. “You’re sitting there with a bunch of banks, and they’re pretty risk averse,” said Mike McNair, director of community develop-

ment and housing for High Point. A committee of city officials and lenders would determine eligibility for the loans, which are expected to range from $50,000 to $300,000 each. The plan is for 40 percent of each loan to be composed of HUD funds, with the rest coming from the banks’ portion of the loan pool. The program also would carry job creation and retention requirements for borrowers. At a minimum, one full-time job would have to be created or re-

tained for each $50,000 loaned from the pool. The goal is for a majority of the jobs to be made available to low- and moderate-income city residents.

LEXINGTON – Steve Googe made a comment Tuesday that may bring some hope to those who have lost manufacturing jobs in Davidson County. “We are a manufacturing community that, during these types of downturns, ... is hit the hardest and the longest, but when it comes back, it always comes back the fastest,” said Googe, executive director of the Davidson County Economic Development Commission. “We really think that probably not this year, and maybe not until the latter part of the following year, but we expect to see some of these things coming back ... We feel that manufacturing is going to be here for a long time, and our people are skilled in manufacturing. We just need to marry the two up.” Googe spoke to about 50 government, education and business leaders Tuesday during Davidson County’s economic development report for 2008 at the Sapona Country Club. Dale Moorefield, deputy director of the Davidson County Department of Social Services, and Pat Hillard, manager of the Employment Security Commission office in Lexington, also provided remarks at the event. According to Googe, Davidson County announced four new industries and 115 jobs in 2008. Googe said the county also announced the expansion of 71 existing industries that created 1,448 new jobs. Googe said Davidson County was ranked seventh in the state in the number of jobs announced in 2008. “It doesn’t help to be unemployed and see that,” Googe said of the ranking. “... We at least know what we are doing is the right thing.” Moorefield told the crowd a good “indicator” of the economic conditions in the county is the Davidson County Department of Social Services food stamps program. From 2002 to July 2009, there has been an increase of 142 percent in the number of people in Davidson County who are receiving food stamp benefits, according to Moorefield. After saying the unemployment rate in Davidson County is high, Hillard noted that 433 workers have lost their jobs in the county so far in 2009. However, she said Atrium Windows in Welcome has hired 366 workers this year. dignasiak@hpe.com | 888-3657

Trinity may help fund new sewer study BY DARRICK IGNASIAK ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

TRINITY – The Trinity City Council will consider financially supporting a preliminary engineering sewer study that may be conducted with the city of Archdale and Randolph County. At its preagenda meeting Tuesday, the council decided to place the issue on its regular monthly meeting agenda for next week. In 2007, the Archdale and Trinity city councils agreed to participate financially in a similar study in an amount not to exceed $22,000. That study was to be funded jointly by Archdale, Trinity and Randolph County, as well as a $40,000 planning grant from the N.C. Rural Development Center. The grant application

wasn’t approved and the effort was dropped. The Archdale City Council, however, recently allocated $25,000 toward the preliminary engineering study that would explore the idea of providing sewer service to the southeast of Trinity. The funding of the study also will need $25,000 each from the Trinity City Council and Randolph County Board of Commissioners, according to Randy McNeill, city engineer for Trinity. “It encompasses the area south of the city limits where the treatment plant would need to go,” McNeill said of the study. “It includes growth areas for Archdale, Trinity and Randolph County.” Ann Bailie, Trinity’s city manager, previously said a wastewater treatment plant

YOUR COMMUNITY. YOUR NEWSPAPER.

located south of Trinity could save a lot of money because wastewater currently is being pumped to Thomasville. Bailie said the study should take less than one year to be completed once engineers are given the go-ahead. Jerry Yarborough, Archdale’s city manager, said last month the study would “benefit both communities” by providing “wastewater sewer service to encourage economic development.” The Trinity City Council will decide allocating funds towards the study at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Trinity City Hall Annex, 6703 N.C. 62. The Randolph County Board of Commissioners has yet to consider an allocation for the study. dignasiak@hpe.com | 888-3657

They say you never forget your first, and I haven’t. The problem is, I still ADVICE feel hurt. I want him to Dear know that, Abby but I don’t ■■■ know what to do. Am I making too much of this? – “Grace” in New York Dear “Grace”: No, I don’t think so. Your relationship with Will ended without closure, so your hurt is understandable. Give Will a call and invite him to join you for lunch. Tell him you were deeply hurt all those years ago, and then ask him to explain why he treated you the way he did and what happened after he left the school. Don’t be surprised if he tells you he loved you, too, and that he tried to be straight but simply could not be who you wanted him to be. Sometimes that happens. Dear Abby: My mother passed away a year and a half ago. My parents were married 50 years. Dad is now 76 and recently started “seeing someone.” While my sisters and I weren’t thrilled about it, we never said anything negative about her to him.

A few weeks ago he found it necessary to include this woman in our weekly visit to our mother’s grave. We told him if he wants to go there with her – fine. But do not drag her there with us. This was our private time with our mother. We didn’t want a stranger there. The end result was they broke up. Now Dad is blaming it all on us. The breakup is a secondary issue. What are your thoughts about his insisting she be a part of the cemetery visits? – Gravely Concerned in Ohio Dear Gravely Concerned: Frankly, I am surprised that the woman would want to be included in the weekly visits to your mother’s grave. However, before she accepted the invitation, she should have made sure that her presence wasn’t an imposition by asking your father if it had been cleared with you. As to the “secondary issue” – I suspect there was more behind the breakup than you have been led to believe.

ear Abby: When I started my freshman year of college, I was a loner. I had low self-esteem, the result of a disability I was born with. On the first day of school I noticed “Will,” who was also a freshman. I thought he was cute. He was easy to talk to, and we hit it off instantly. We became inseparable, often visiting each other’s families on weekends and breaks. At the end of the first semester – out of the blue – he called me a “b-tch” and told me to get out of his life. I was crushed! He left school shortly afterward without saying goodbye. Later I was given some shocking news. His roommate told me that Will was gay. I went through the gamut of emotions from disbelief to anger to sadness. And I felt used. Twenty-six years have passed. I answered the phone at work two days ago and was surprised to hear Will’s voice on the other end. He was shocked, too. I asked if he remembered me and he said he did. He came into the store several days later, and we exchanged phone numbers and e-mail addresses. I looked at his Web pages and saw pictures of him holding and kissing men the way he used to hold and kiss me.

Q

uestion: Help, I am getting a lot of conflicting information regarding aerating my lawn. Should I or shouldn’t I aerate, and if so, when?

I

PATTY JO SAWVEL is a freelance writer from Kernersville.

Answer: A healthy root system is a must for an attractive lawn. Oxygen in the soil is vital for healthy roots. Root growth is inhibited by clay and compacted soils because of a restricted oxygen supply. Aerating improves rooting and problem soils by allowing air into the soil. An aerator does this job mechanically without destroying the turf. Aeration is beneficial because it loosens compacted soil, breaks up and/or removes thatch, improves water infiltra-

n Woodsdale, the surname “Hall” has great value. It stands for honest, hardworking, respectable citizens. So when Margaret Hall was born as the fourth and final child to Huel and Marian Hall, they not only gave her their name but also their expectation. Margaret’s training grounds, a 500-acre tobacco farm with 40 head of cattle, prepared her for the task. With no electricity or running water, rugged farm life exacted a strong work ethic and rewarded well-laid plans. “Mother and daddy always expected me to do my best. I worked hard on the farm, made top grades ABOVE at school AND and walked BEYOND the straight and narrow. Patty Jo That was Sawvel expected of ■■■ a Hall,” she said. Leo F. Burks convinced her to take his surname through marriage after she graduated from East Carolina University in 1947, even though she loved her last name and its legacy. The following year, the couple moved to Kernersville. Later, when their children were born, Burks endowed each child, Randy and Barbara, with the middle name “Hall.” Burks cherished traditional motherhood and being a grade-mother and PTA volunteer while simultaneously developing affection for Kernersville and its public affairs. After helping to establish the Kernersville Woman’s Club in 1951, she attended a board of aldermen meeting. Burks was appalled at what she witnessed. The mayor and five aldermen were speaking in hushed tones around a table in the corner of the room so that the audience could not hear the public proceedings. “I stood up and told them that I was from the Woman’s Club and asked them to move the table to the front of the room so we could hear. That was the beginning of good government in Kernersville,” Burks said. Before long, Burks inched her way to the center of town politics. With much planning and perseverance, Burks became the first woman elected to the Kernersville board of aldermen (1959-1963). Burks argued for the need to create a planning and zoning board. Many landowners resisted, not wanting to put the town’s best interests ahead of their own. Burks prevailed, but it cost her re-election. Burks also helped found the YMCA in Kernersville and First Presbyterian Church. From planting trees to donating the big white Miss Margaret’s Gazebo at Harmon Park, this 83-year-old still is looking after the town.

Keloids are scars that don’t know when to stop growing

D

ear Dr. Donohue: What can be done for a very bothersome scar on a teenager’s leg? – L.M.

BLONDIE

If you could be a trifle more specific, I could be sure if my answer applies to you. If it doesn’t, write me again. A keloid is a scar that keeps growing when it should have stopped. It spreads far beyond the borders of the original wound. Not only is the scar far too wide, it is raised above the surface of the skin. It might hurt, itch or burn. Scars are made of collagen, the body’s favorite filler material. With a keloid, the body’s collagen production has gotten way out of line. Keloids are approached in a number of ways. Sometimes doctors choose to inject them on a monthly basis with a cortisone drug. It can take up to six injections to shrink the scar. Or the doctor can use a freezing treatment on them. Liquid nitrogen is the usual agent chosen. The application is done in a series of monthly treatments, and the number of treatments is three or more. Keloids also can be cut out. The new wound has to be treated with great care so that another keloid doesn’t form. Cortisone injections are often employed to stop the keloid from coming back. And lasers also

have found a place in keloid treatment. A hypertrophic scar looks like a HEALTH keloid. It is large and Dr. Paul unsightly, Donohue but it ■■■ doesn’t spread past the original boundaries of the wound. These scars frequently flatten on their own within six months or so. Did I strike out on this question, L.M.? Dear Dr. Donohue: Will you please explain about factor five? I am 87 and found out I have it. I found out when my oldest son discovered he had it. I did have a knee replacement and had a blood clot in my lung after the surgery. My son says it was because of factor five. – H.B. Factor five is written as factor V (Roman numeral five) Leiden (the city in the Netherlands where it was discovered). Most people don’t sit around and mull over how they make blood clots. However, the process is quite amazing and quite important. Involved in clot formation are a group of proteins called clotting factors and another group of proteins that stop clotting factors from overdoing clot-making. Ordinary factor V

aids in clotting. It has a counterpart that stops it from going overboard and keeps matters in balance. People born with factor V Leiden have a mutated form of clotting factor V, and they tend to form clots when they should not. The counterpart that stops the action of normal factor V has no effect on it. Your factor V Leiden might have been responsible for the lung clot you had after knee surgery. This genetic quirk is found in 5 percent of the white population. It’s rarely found in other ethnic groups. People with only one factor V Leiden gene are at a slightly higher-than-normal risk for making unneeded clots. People with two genes are a greater risk. Clots due to the mutant factor V Leiden most often occur later in life. Young women with the mutation should not take birth-control pills. They add to the danger of clotting. A clot like you had is treated with blood thinner. Those with factor V Leiden who have repeated clots might have to stay on blood thinner for life. Those people are few in number.

VENICE, Italy (AP) – A fan of actor George Clooney stripped to his boxer shorts in front of the Hollywood star and asked if he could “kiss him, just once.” “I am gay, George,” the unidentified man said during a news conference at the Venice Film Festival Tuesday. “Take me, choose me George, please. May I kiss you, just once?” Clooney was unflappable in responding with a smile, “It’s hard when you take a big chance and it doesn’t really work.” Clooney was attending the Venice Film Festival to present his new movie “The Men Who Stare at Goats,” directed by Grant Heslov.

Tolkien estate, New Line settle lawsuit over films

LOS ANGELES (AP) – The heirs of J.R.R. Tolkien and a movie studio that produced the blockbuster “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy have settled a lawsuit over the films’ profits, it was announced Tuesday. The out-of-court resolution clears the way for a two-film pre-

quel based on Tolkien’s novel “The Hobbit” and will benefit charities around the world, according to a joint press release announcing the settlement. The lawsuit had sought to rescind New Line Cinema’s rights to make films based on the book.

Tolkien’s heirs sued New Line Cinema in February 2008, claiming the studio owed it millions in profits from the movies released between 2001 and 2003. The films earned an estimated $6 billion in sales of movie tickets, DVDs and merchandise.

Baked and sweet, they’re a real treat BY JIM ROMANOFF FOR THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ith apples nearing peak season, it’s easy to want more than one a day regardless of any plans to see your doctor. Apples – of which some 2,500 varieties are grown in the United States – are jammed with antioxidants and flavonoids, both considered important parts of a healthy diet. They also are an excellent source of pectin, a natural fiber. This time of year, apples often are best enjoyed unadorned, straight from the tree. But

cooked apples can be a real treat, too. Either way, try not to remove the skin, because that’s the best source of the apple’s pectin and other nutrients. In this recipe, apples are combined with nutritious nuts and the flavors of orange and cinnamon to create warm and comforting baked apples filled with dates and pecans. To toast the chopped pecans, which enhances their nuttiness, place them in a small, dry skillet and cook over mediumlow heat, stirring constantly, until they are lightly browned and fragrant, about 3 to 5 minutes.

Baked Apples with Dates and Pecans 1 4

⁄ cup finely chopped toasted pecans 1 ⁄4 cup pitted and finely diced Medjool dates Zest and juice of 1 orange 3 ⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon, divided 1 ⁄4 teaspoon salt 4 baking apples, such as Pink Lady, Pippin or McIntosh 1 tablespoon butter, melted (optional) 2 cups unfiltered apple juice 2 tablespoons brown sugar 2 teaspoons cornstarch 1 tablespoon cool water Heat the oven to 350. In a small bowl, stir together the pecans, dates, orange zest and juice, 1⁄4 teaspoon of the cinnamon and the salt. Core the apples, leaving 1⁄2 inch at the bottom, and peel the top edges. Stuff the apples with the pecan filling, then brush the tops

with the melted butter, if using. Arrange the apples in an 8-by8-inch baking dish. Add the apple juice to the bottom of the dish, then cover it tightly with foil. Bake until the apples are tender (but not mushy) when pierced with a fork, about 35 to 45 minutes. Transfer the apples to serving plates. If desired, place the plated apples in the oven (with the heat turned off) to keep warm. Transfer the juices in the baking dish to a small saucepan over medium. Simmer for 5 minutes, or until reduced by half. Add the brown sugar and remaining 1⁄2 teaspoon of cinnamon. Simmer, stirring constantly, until the sugar is dissolved. In a small glass, mix the cornstarch and water. Add the mixture to the saucepan, then heat until thickened. Serve the apples drizzled with the thickened sauce.

As apples near peak season, it’s time to start planning what to do with them. Baked Apples with Dates and Pecans takes only 10 minutes of preparation prior to slipping the tasty recipe in the oven.

People with type 2 diabetes are not consuming sufficiently healthy diets and could benefit from ongoing nutritional education and counseling, according to a new study by researchers at Wake Forest University School of Medicine and colleagues. The study appears in the August issue of the Journal of the American Dietetic Association. “The most important thing about controlling diabetes, especially type 2 diabetes, is being able to manage energy in and energy out, and the best way to do that is through the diet,” said Mara Z. Vitolins, associate professor in the department of epidemiology and prevention. The study was done to see what people with type 2 diabetes were eating to make them overweight. The results were surprising, she said. The study of 2,757 people with type 2 diabetes showed that 93 percent of participants exceeded the recommended percentage of daily calories from fat, 85 percent exceeded the saturated fat recommendation, and 92 percent consumed too much sodium in their regular diets. Additionally, less than half of the participants met the minimum recommended daily servings of fruits, vegetables, dairy products and grains. Intake of diets rich in fruits and vegetables have been shown to prevent heart disease, the leading cause of death in people with type 2 diabetes.

“I never put on a pair of shoes unless I’ve worn them at least five years.” – movie mogul Sam Goldwyn. A good partner is as comfortable as an old shoe, but it may take time to break him in. Years are needed to build trust; great partnerships such as MeckstrothRodwell spend many hours discussing methods. A practiced partnership beats today’s contract. West leads a diamond, East’s suit, but a careful West leads the KING. He may retain the lead to make a killing shift through dummy.

SPADE SHIFT

Sure enough, East follows with the strikingly high queen. This suitpreference signal shows strength in spades, the high-ranking side suit. If East wanted more diamonds led, he could overtake West’s king. West shifts to the jack of spades. East wins the next spade with the queen and judges that unless West had a promotable trump holding, he’d have seen no urgency for a spade shift and would have continued diamonds. So East leads a low spade, and West gets a trump trick. Down one.

DAILY QUESTION You hold: S A Q 9 7 H 2 D A Q J 7 3 C 10 8 4. Your partner opens one heart, and the next player passes. What do you say? ANSWER: Since your hand is worth several bids, your correct response is two diamonds. If partner rebids two hearts, as is likely, you’ll continue with an economical two spades. Of course, you want to find a major-suit fit, but if you respond one spade, you must bid three diamonds over partner’s two hearts, crowding your own auction. East dealer Neither side vulnerable

It was definitely overload for this dad, but also an education. For my son and for his two friends, it was probably the first such adventure of this sort in their young lives with only one adult chaperone and an astonishing amount of freedom during the festival itself. For me, it was proof of my theory, which I espoused in one of my first columns, that there is no such thing as quality time, only quantity time. The hours we spent together brought a closeness and, now, shared memories and experiences that are irreplaceable. I saw my son blossom as a man, learning to take care of the two girls in his charge. As one was less than 5 feet tall, she required special care when they were working their way close to the stage or she’d literally get trampled. My 6-foot-2 son rose to the occasion and all three kids were spectacularly happy and riding high, without the

aid of any of the “Eau du Reefer.” Our taxi driver, the first day when we missed the bus to get us to the festival, was an old hippie who had on a ’60s radio channel and offered my son a buck off the fare if he could identify the song that was playing. He did. It was “Tired of Waiting” by The Kinks. It turns out this taxi driver’s name was also Bruce, and he turned around to the three kids in the back, and sounding stoned, said “Do you have any idea how lucky you are to have a dad that takes you to this?” Needless to say, he got a big tip. For me, watching my son interact with his girl peers was a chance to re-live those moments of growing up that are so special.

I mustered up my resolve and for 30 minutes or so wormed my way through the crowd, tiptoeing over prostrate people, to stand adjacent to Will and his friends. It was worth it. Will would turn and look at me with this wide-mouthed grin.

He and the girls were dancing in place and the whole field was alive with joy. I remember the same feeling when I went to see Peter, Paul and Mary in 1967 with my first “love,” Robin, when it took me the length of the entire concert to get the nerve to put my arm around her. Maybe the music has changed, but I don’t think growing up is any different today. The irony that I realized midway through the trip was that I was 15 in 1969, when Woodstock happened on that August weekend 40 years ago. Now, these three 15-year-old kids enjoyed this festival with the open-eyed enthusiasm I suppose all 15-yearolds bring to life. Maybe the difference is parents today choose to experience some of these things with their children. For me, it was a priceless time and memory.

NEW YORK (AP) – Treehouses aren’t just for little kids. Treehouse hotels offer adventure, a sense of fun, and even romance for newlyweds. Destination Wedding Magazine recommends five treehouse hotels in its Fall 2009 issue, some of them offering highpriced luxury. They are: Lodge Kura Hulanda, Curacao: Offers a luxurious treehouse mansion with a four-poster bed, high on a cliff overlooking Kalki Beach, from $1,200 a night. Kanopi House, Jamaica: Four treehouse-style bungalows near Port Antonio on the island’s northeastern coast, from $300 a person, all-inclusive. Tree House Lodge, Costa

pleasure that comes from holding her hand for the first time. I got to vicariously live those feelings again and maybe enable them to happen under wonderful and truly magical circumstances. The first day, I watched from afar the big acts while the kids went into the tight mass of humanity crowding the stage. Modern technology, in the form of texting, allowed me to keep in touch.

The list of performers included such wellknown acts as Incubus, DAD’S Pearl Jam, POINT Tom Jones OF VIEW (yes, that Tom Jones who has Bruce become Sallan a sort of ■■■ icon to the younger set), The BlackEyed Peas and The Dave Matthews Band. On the more obscure side, especially to this ol’ middleaged dude, were acts I’d never heard of including Gooferman, Zap Mama, Kinky, Q-Tip, Albino, Dirty Rotten, TV on the Radio, Ween, Lenka, Cage the Elephant, and Heartless Bastards. Honestly, I didn’t make up any of these names. There were tens of thousands of festivalgoers, and the grounds at various times were full with excitement, tension and anticipation as well as the ubiquitous smell, to quote Dave Matthews, of “Eau du Reefer.” The first day they ran out of beer as the jostling of the crowd to get to the drinks and food was almost as intense as getting to the front of the stage for the bigger-name performers. During our six-hour drive from Los Angeles to the Bay Area, I was inculcated to the better-known acts by my son and by all three of the teens that played

Mayfield sues stepmother over father’s death

SALISBURY (AP) — Suspended NASCAR driver Jeremy Mayfield has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against his estranged stepmother over the 2007 death of his father. The suit, filed Sept. 4 in North Carolina Superior Court, does not allege how Lisa Mayfield was involved in her husband’s death. It only claims her “intentional actions” played a direct role in Terry Mayfield’s death. A police investigation determined Terry Mayfield died from a suicidal gunshot wound to the chest. Mayfield is the first driver suspended under NASCAR’s toughened drug policy. His stepmother testified on behalf of NASCAR about seeing him use methamphetamines at least 30 times over the years. He denied ever using the drug and accused Lisa Mayfield of accepting payment from

N A S CAR to lie under oath. S h e in turn filed a d e f a Mayfield mation lawsuit against Mayfield last month, denying his public comments that she killed Terry Mayfield. Lisa Mayfield was arrested last month and charged with four misdemeanor counts of simple assault and one misdemeanor count of second-degree trespassing for an incident at Mayfield’s Catawba County home. Mayfield and his wife, Shana, said an intoxicated Lisa Mayfield showed up at their home while the couple was away. Shana Mayfield said a caretaker and his wife approached Lisa Mayfield, who allegedly began hitting the caretaker and then pushed their pregnant daughter.

BYU jumps 11 spots; UNC 19th in AP poll

NEW YORK (AP) — BYU barged into the top 10 of The Associated Press college football poll, making the biggest jump of any team from the preseason rankings after scoring the biggest upset of the opening weekend of the regular season. The Cougars jumped 11 spots to No. 9 in the Top 25 released Tuesday, three days after they stunned Oklahoma 14-13 as three-touchdown underdogs. Cougars quarterback Max Hall said the victory has energized Provo, Utah, and the BYU campus. Florida was still an overwhelming No. 1, receiving 56 of 60 firstplace votes, two less than last week. Texas held steady at No. 2, with two first-place votes. USC will be No. 3 when it visits No. 8 Ohio State on Saturday in one of the biggest nonconference games of the season. The Trojans moved up a spot this week and the Buckeyes fell after narrowly escaping with a 31-27 victory against Navy. No. 4 Alabama moved

up one spot after its 3424 victory against Virginia Tech and persuaded two voters to pick them as the top-ranked team in the country. No. 5 Oklahoma State moved up four spots after an impressive 24-10 victory against Georgia. The Cowboys have their best ranking since October 1985. The loss dropped the Bulldogs eight spots to No. 21. No. 6 Mississippi, No. 7 Penn State and No. 10 California round out the top 10. Oklahoma dropped 10 spots to No. 13 after losing.. BYU is no stranger to the top 10. The Cougars were ranked as high as eighth last season. reporters. BYU travels to New Orleans to face Tulane on Saturday before playing their first home game on Sept. 19 against Florida State, one of three teams to fall out of the rankings this week. Oregon and Iowa also fell out. Moving into the Top 25 were Miami, Cincinnati and Missouri. LSU was No. 11 and No. 12 Boise State moved up two spots after beating Oregon 19-8 on Thursday.

Wake Forest cornerback Michael Williams (right) breaks up a pass intended for Baylor wide receiver Willie Jefferson in the first quarter of last Saturday’s game at BB&T Field. Wake’s secondary was burned for three touchdowns as the Bears won 24-21, marking one area where coach Jim Grobe wants the Deacons to improve this Saturday against Stanford.

Deacons seek better play against Stanford M

istakes continued to be on the mind of Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe on Tuesday. Grobe was still concerned about the three interceptions thrown by Riley Skinner and one lost fumble that bit the Deacons in Saturday’s spotty 24-21 loss to Baylor. But mental errors were on the minds of both linebacker Matt Woodlief and wide receiver Devon Brown as attention started to turn toward taking on Stanford at BB&T Field. “We made good reads and made some mistakes: Some came from mental errors and some from missed tackles,” Woodlief said. “We’ve got to have more energy and enthusiasm on defense. “Some of us just left our feet too early and were out of position, playing too fast or too slow. Sometimes we lined up wrong. We’ve got to get back to the basics.” In an effort to eliminate the defense lining up out of position, Grobe said that better communication will be a priority. “Baylor is one of those teams that changes their offensive set once they see your defense, and then we changed our defense,” Grobe said. “Some of our guys would get the first message about our defensive set but wouldn’t get the second one.” Grobe rated the play of both the linebackers and

secondary, with a total of six new starters, as satisfactory. He also indicated that SPORTS he wasn’t totally Greer displeased Smith about giv■■■ ing up 24 points to a high-powered Baylor offense. “If you had told me before the game that we would give up 24 points with seven new starters against that offense, I wouldn’t have been doing jumping jacks, but I would have said that wouldn’t be too bad,” Grobe said. “I expected more production offensively, but when you turn it over four times, you’re not going to have production.” Grobe said Skinner tried to force the ball into coverage on one interception and blames a poorly run route for another. The third was the result of a ball bouncing out of the receiver’s hand and into the hands of the Baylor defender. “They made a couple plays and then we did some things we shouldn’t have done,” Brown said. “It was just mental mistakes. We make the plays in practice all the time. So maybe it was nerves and the atmosphere.” Starting this week, the

Deacons’ playbook will likely be a little thinner. “You can what-if yourself to death, thinking about what happens if the other team is in this coverage or comes with this blitz,” Grobe said. “We’ll keep the good stuff and take out some things that we were wasting our time on.” Even though Wake gained just 126 yards on the ground, Grobe was pleased with more power from the offensive line. “We were much more physical,” Grobe said. “When we needed a gain in short yardage, we got them. That was a problem last year and we wound up throwing all the time. We had some pass protection breakdowns and that spooked Riley, but we came off the ball better. But we’ve got to protect better if we want to balance the offense out.” Grobe indicated that Kevin Harris will remain the starter at running back, but that Josh Adams and Brandon Pendergrass will get plenty of playing time. Harris led the trio with 23 yards against the Bears. “Kevin is the man right now,” Grobe said. “But, we evaluate on things other than yard per carry and he needs to improve on his pass protection and blocking. Josh did a real nice job protecting Riley a couple of times.” gsmith@hpe.com | 888-3519

T

he Pittsburgh Pirates sank to a new bigleague low with Monday’s 4-2 loss to the Chicago Cubs. The Pirates clinched their 17th consecutive losing season, a Major League record. The previous mark was 16. The Pirates shared that dubious distinction with the Philadelphia Phillies (1933-48). During their “run,” the Pirates have finished at least four games under .500 every season since 1992. That got me to wondering about some

other records for most consecutive professional losing seasons. The Vancouver Canucks put the NHL record on ice, posting 15 consecutive losing campaigns from 1976-91. The NBA “crown” goes to the Kansas City/ Sacramento Kings, who suffered 15 straight losing seasons from 1983-98. In the NFL, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers hold the mark with 14 straight losing campaigns from 1983-96. Interestingly, the Detroit Lions, who

infamously went 0-16 last year, sport an eight-year active streak of consecutive losing seasons. It seems longer than that, somehow. As for college football, Oregon State owns the Division I record for most consecutive losing seasons with 28 from 1971-98. Northwestern endured 23 straight losing seasons from the 1970s to the ‘90s. I suppose I could look at other sports, but this is too depressing.

Michael Jordan has chosen David Thompson, another high flyer from North Carolina, to present him, while Charles Barkley and Isiah Thomas also will be presenters at the Hall of Fame enshrinement ceremony. Jordan highlights a class that includes David Robinson, John Stockton, and coaches Jerry Sloan of the Utah Jazz and C. Vivian Stringer of Rutgers. Jordan went with a surprise by asking Thompson, the athletic swingman who led North Carolina State to the national championship in 1974 — eight years before Jordan won one for the rival Tar Heels. Stockton, the career leader in assists, requested Thomas, like himself one of the best point guards in NBA history. Sloan, Stockton’s coach in Utah, asked Barkley to give his presenting speech. Robinson went with Larry Brown, his first NBA coach, and fellow San Antonio Spurs Hall of Famer George Gervin. Stringer’s choice of longtime friend John Chaney was perhaps the least surprising.

AP

Kim Clijsters returns a shot to Li Na during a quarterfinal victory in the U.S. Open on Tuesday.

Clijsters, Williams head for showdown NEW YORK (AP) — Disappointed. That was the word Andy Murray used over and over to describe how he felt about his exit from the U.S. Open. After all, Murray arrived at Flushing Meadows ranked No. 2, owner of a tour-leading 37 wins on hard courts this season — and quite sure he was prepared to win his first Grand Slam title a year after reaching the U.S. Open final. Instead, he heads home after the fourth round, a 7-5, 6-2, 6-2 loser to No. 16 Marin Cilic of Croatia on Tuesday. Ahead 5-4, he wasted two set points. By the second set, Murray was grimacing while flexing his left wrist, which he acknowledged afterward had been bothering him for about a week. By the third, Murray was moping about the court. “Regardless of my wrist, I lost the match,” Murray said. “I returned poorly. He served well — and that was really the difference.” Murray’s loss, at least for one evening, turned

into the talk of a tournament that had been generating very little buzz about the men’s field. Instead, the focus has been on the women’s event, thanks to the surprising emergence of 17-yearold American Melanie Oudin and the quick comeback of former No. 1 Kim Clijsters. Oudin plays in the first major quarterfinal of her nascent career Wednesday — she obliged autograph-seekers after practicing Tuesday — and Clijsters already is into the semifinals, where she will face a Williams for the second time this tournament. Clijsters beat Venus Williams in the fourth round; now she will take on defending champion Serena Williams, who improved to 23-1 in Grand Slam singles matches this season by beating No. 10 Flavia Pennetta of Italy 6-4, 6-3 Tuesday night. Looking ahead to facing Clijsters, the younger Williams said: “She’s such a great person and I, like, only wish the best for her. But not in the next match.”

Rangers down Indians in slugfest, 11-9 THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CLEVELAND — Rookie Julio Borbon homered twice and Marlon Byrd went 4 for 4, including a three-run homer in the seventh inning, to help Texas beat Cleveland 119 on Wednesday in front of a sparse crowd in the first game of a doubleheader. The teams combined for six homers and 29 hits and scored half of the 20 runs after the sixth inning. David Murphy homered for Texas, while Matt LaPorta and Travis Hafner homered for Cleveland.

ORTIZ TIED DH MARK BOSTON — Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz has tied Frank Thomas for the most home runs by a designated hitter.

Ortiz hit his 269th homer as a DH against Baltimore right-hander Bob McCrory in the seventh inning on Tuesday night. Ortiz has 312 homers total. Thomas hit 521 in his career, counting games when he played first base.

PHILLIES JOIN 30-HOMER CLUB WASHINGTON — The Philadelphia Phillies are the 12th team in major league history to have four players to hit 30 home runs in a season. Raul Ibanez went long for the 29th and 30th times this season and Chase Utley hit No. 30 in Tuesday night’s game against the Washington Nationals. They joined Ryan Howard and Jayson Werth in Philadelphia’s 30-homer club.

Miami curse continues to haunt Bowden, FSU

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Not much has changed over the years in the Florida State-Miami series. It’s usually a tightly contested game and most of the time Miami wins. It happened again just before midnight Monday when the Hurricanes

stopped Florida State on Miami’s 2-yard line the last three plays to claim a 38-34 victory in a game coach Bobby Bowden called one of the three greatest he’s been involved with in six decades of coaching — all losses. “It was a typical Miami-Florida State football

game,” Bowden said Tuesday. “They don’t come easy. That’s the way we’ve always played Miami.” Miami’s victory in the season opener for both schools propelled them from unranked to No. 20 in The Associated Press’ weekly Top 25 poll while the Seminoles, who came

into the game at No. 18, fell out. Florida State quarterback Christian Ponder played the game of his career in a losing effort, his final throw an knee-high bullet that sophomore Jarmon Fortson couldn’t safely scoop as he knelt to the ground.

“It was a poor throw,” said Ponder, who passed for a career-best 294 yards and a pair of touchdowns and ran for another score. “It was low.” Miami has been Bowden’s tormentor. No opponent has given him more grief during his celebrated 34-year run at

Florida State. He has said on occasion that a mention of the rivalry could make its way to his tombstone someday. Bowden is 14-21 against Miami and 368-101 against the rest of the world. Three of the losses to the Hurricanes were by a single point.

THIS WEEK’S GAMES

PREP FOOTBALL NOTEBOOK:

Thursday

HIGH POINT – The regular Friday night football schedule seems to get shaken up once or twice a year now due to inclement weather – both for local monsoons created by tropical systems and some teams seemingly waving the white flag whenever a few rain drops appear. A few teams already have played on Saturday and Monday this year. And for the first time for area fans, this week will see a scheduled interruption of the norm when High Point Central plays host to Smith on Thursday. It happens just about every year for local teams since Central and T. Wingate Andrews share space at Simeon Stadium. Some seasons there aren’t any conflicts until the playoffs, while some campaigns call for each team to shift to a Thursday night. Andrews will play host to Carver on Thursday, Oct. 29. Similarly, Southwest Guilford will visit Parkland – which shares Deaton-Thompson Stadium in Winston-Salem with Reynolds – on Thursday, Nov. 5. “We’ll try to get in and get a film session, get in what we can those two days,” said Bison coach Wayne Jones, who had the added “bonus” of a Labor Day holiday that his players and coaches weren’t able to enjoy. “Tuesday will probably be the only day we hit.” A short week against Smith might not have been a big deal in the past, but the moribund program boasts added life this season. The Golden Eagles are 2-1 for coach Rodney Brewington, with big wins over Atkins and Northcross (Va.) to open the season before last week’s 15-14 loss against Northwest Guilford. Eric Ebron – a big tight end who already has committed to North Carolina – has helped Smith put the brakes on that 32-game losing streak the team had entering this year. “Smith is an improved team,” Jones said. “They’ve always had the potential to do well. Just one year is all it takes to give the kids a little more confidence.”

AP PREP POLL

Trinity at Surry Central

RALEIGH (AP) – The Associated Press state high school football poll for the week of Sept. 8, first-place votes in parentheses, records and total points as voted upon by a statewide panel of prep sports writers. Final poll ranking for 2008 included.

East Montgomery vs. Wheatmore (at Trinity)

1. Clt. Independence (7) 3-0 105 1

Smith at High Point Central

Friday Southwest Guilford at T. Wingate Andrews

Page at Ragsdale Albemarle at Thomasville East Davidson at Southwestern Randolph South Davidson at Bishop McGuinness Glenn at Mount Tabor All kickoffs set for 7:30 p.m. to Duke over the summer, has done everything but drive the bus so far for the Red Raiders. “It’s from a necessity,” coach Rodney McKoy said. “He’s a good football player. In high school, some people have got the depth and you don’t have to play people both ways. We’ve got kids who could do it, but he can just do it better. It’s one of those things where you’ve got to play your best players. He’s the Tony Washington of last year.” Washington, of course, was the celebrated defensive back/ backfield threat/kick returner/kicker now at Appalachian State. Stevenson so far has been in the backfield, caught passes, played DB, returned kicks and also kicked and punted. “You’ve got to get the ball to the people who make plays,” McKoy said. “Wherever we need somebody good, we put him there.”

MORE THAN ONE PENALTY Ledford’s inconsistent offense in Friday’s loss at Southwest Guilford got not one boost, but two, from Cowboys crashing into punter Grady Gilmore. There’s always a risk involved when rushing the punter, of course. Those 15-yard penalties led to first downs for Ledford, and on one occasion, a touchdown later in the drive. But running into Ledford’s punter carries additional risk. Gilmore, you see, is a 6-foot, 180-pound linebacker who also just happens to punt. “He’s not worried about the contact,” Panthers coach Chuck Henderson said. Gilmore, who also punted last year for the varsity, had a huge game Friday. In addition to surviving those two hits, he landed one punt at the 7-yard line, dropped another at the 10 and had a third downed by De Greene at the 3-yard line after the ball hit near the goal line and bounced straight up. “If we can protect, he’s got a strong leg,” Henderson praised. And if the Panthers can’t protect, the rest of him is strong enough to survive a couple of roughing-the-kicker calls.

Jones described Bison senior Evan Aguilar as being a player who has “a nose for the ball” after Friday’s impressive performance. The three-year starter in the secondary grabbed two interceptions and also had a fumble recovery in Central’s win over Lexington. He even chipped in with two receptions for 20 yards. “He does a good job getting around the football,” Jones said. “He’s been a good player for us the last three years.” As a sophomore, Aguilar nabbed five interceptions, and last year he had six. With three already this season in three games, he’s well on his way to setting a new personal best. “Being a veteran, he’s going to do what you ask him to do, and he pays attention to detail in practice,” Jones said. “He makes it hard to throw the foot- BY THE NUMBERS The folks at NCPreps.com alball back there.” ways offer entertaining looks inside the numbers. DOES HE HAVE HIS CDL? Reidsville, for instance, owns Quan Stevenson scored both touchdowns for Andrews on the longest winning streak in Friday and also spearheaded a the state at 34 games. Dudley defense that kept Grimsley out had been second at 23 prior to of the end zone until the final last week’s loss to Ragsdale. And Thomasville had been tied minutes of a 14-6 victory. The senior defensive back, for third at 17 straight before who gave a verbal commitment falling to Mount Airy.

The Bulldogs, despite two straight defeats, still own one nice streak: 73 straight games scoring in double figures, good for third overall behind Independence (149) and Reidsville (112). In the futility department, feel bad for the folks from Spring Creek – in the Goldsboro/Kinston neck of the woods – and their state-high 29-game losing streak. Andrews High – in the mountains, not High Point – sits second at 19 along with East Chapel Hill. shanf@hpe.com | 888-3526

NEW YORK (AP) – Rising commodity prices and stirrings of corporate takeovers are making investors more optimistic about the economy. Stocks rose for the third straight day Tuesday following gains among materials and energy stocks. Gold topped $1,000 an ounce for the first time since February and oil jumped more than $3 a barrel as investors look for more ways to profit from an improving economy. A weaker dollar also helped push commodity prices higher. Talk of a revival in corporate dealmaking also lifted investors’ confidence. A takeover bid from Kraft Foods Inc. for rival Cadbury – even though Cadbury rejected it – combined with a big phone deal in England lifted hopes that takeover activity could be picking

up. Deutsche Telekom and France Telecom said they planned to combine their British mobile phone units to form that country’s biggest mobile operator. George F. Shipp, chief investment officer at Scott & Stringfellow in Virginia Beach, Va., said U.S. markets are advancing in part to catch up with overseas trading after the Labor Day holiday. According to preliminary calculations, the Dow Jones industrial average rose 56.07, or 0.6 percent, to 9,497.34. The broader Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 8.99, or 0.9 percent, to 1,025.39, and the Nasdaq composite index rose 18.99, or 0.9 percent, to 2,037.77. Bond prices fell, pushing yields higher. The yield on the 10year Treasury note rose to 3.48 percent from 3.45 percent late Friday.

weakened macroeconomic stability, said Margareta Drzeniek Hanouz, a senior economist who worked on the survey. Switzerland has overtaken the U.S. because its economic performance has been “relatively stable,” the survey said. Swiss financial markets have “weakened somewhat,” it said, citing difficulties for banks.

Smithfield posts larger loss on big charges MILWAUKEE – The nation’s largest pork producer, Smithfield Foods Inc. said Tuesday it posted a bigger first-quarter loss as one-time charges and lower domestic hog prices hurt results, despite curtailed production. But the fresh pork losses were offset by significant improvements in the company’s packaged-meat business and were in line with analyst estimates. The company has been shifting focus to packaged meats products like ham and bacon, which make more money and appeal to consumers eating more at home.

Labor impatient for Opel decision

Gold prices go over $1,000 mark

LONDON (AP) – Gold prices rose above $1,000 per ounce on Tuesday to its highest since March 2008 — suggesting investors are wary of the U.S. dollar’s weakness and expect international interest rates to re-

main low for some time. The gold contract for December delivery traded up $6.50, or 0.7 percent, at $1,003.20 per troy ounce on the New York Mercantile Exchange. It had gone as high as $1,009.70; that is the highest

since it hit a record of $1,033.90 on March 17 last year. Gold is typically bought as an alternative to the dollar among safe-haven assets favored by investors seeking to preserve capital. So its rise often correlates

to a drop in the value of the American currency. Gold last went over $1,000 in February. “It is mainly the reflection of the weakness of the dollar,” said Julian Jessop, economist at Capital Economics.

FRANKFURT – General Motors Co.’s board began a two-day meeting in Detroit on Tuesday with labor organizations pressing for a decision on the fate of its European unit Opel, where thousands of German jobs are on the line. A person familiar with the meeting said GM’s board won’t make any decision about the automaker, whose brands also include Britain’s Vauxhall, until Wednesday. The person spoke anonymously because of the ongoing discussions. ENTERPRISE NEWS SERVICE REPORTS

Gold producer sells silver stake

DENVER (AP) – Barrick Gold Corp., the world’s biggest gold producer, said Tuesday it has agreed to sell an interest in silver production from four of its mines for $625 million to Canada’s Silver Wheaton Corp. The transaction will provide Toronto-based Barrick with a source of financing for Pascua-Lama, a gold and silver mine under construction in South America, and will extend Silver Wheaton’s growth cycle. Under the terms, Silver Wheaton will pay $625 mil-

lion in cash over three years. It will also make ongoing production payments in cash for each ounce of delivered silver. Those payments will be either the prevailing market price or $3.90 per ounce, whichever is the lesser amount. Vancouver, British Columbia-based Silver Wheaton said it will use $70 million in cash and money borrowed under a revolving credit facility or proceeds of offerings in securities or private equity markets or both to finance the initial $212.5 million payment.

Regulators require faster food reporting

WASHINGTON (AP) – Food makers will be required to alert U.S. government officials of potentially contaminated products within 24 hours under a new rule designed to help federal regulators spot food safety issues quicker. The Food and Drug Administration have displayed a new electronic database where manufacturers must notify the government if a product is likely to cause sickness or death in people or animals. Regulators say the database will help the FDA prevent widespread illness and

Japan trade index drops TOKYO (AP) – Japan’s current account surplus in July fell 19.4 percent from a year earlier as exports tumbled amid a slow recovery in the global economy, the finance ministry said Tuesday. The current account surplus, Japan’s broadest measure of trade with the rest of the world, was 1.27 trillion yen ($13.6 billion), the first year-on-year fall in two months, the ministry said. Exports in July dropped 37.6 percent to 4.55 trillion yen, marking the 10th consecutive year-on-year decline.

“Sluggish exports dragged down the surplus. Exports were weak in every key region, underlining that a recovery in the global economy has yet to become solid,” said Hideki Matsumura, senior economist at think tank Japan Research Institute. Japan’s exports to the United States dropped 39.5 percent, while Asiabound shipments fell 29.9 percent. Exports to the European Union nosedived 45.8 percent in the month. Matsumura said ex-

ports, a key driver for Japan’s economy, will remain stagnant throughout the year due to sustained concern over a recovery in the U.S. economy. “Unless the U.S. economy fully recovers, we will not see a turnaround in exports,” he said. Among key products, auto exports were down by a staggering 52.3 percent. Steel exports also plunged 42.1 percent. Exports of semiconductor products fell 28.0 percent. Imports plunged 41.2 percent to 4.11 trillion yen in the month.

The dollar fell to a low for the year Tuesday against the euro and several other currencies as gold prices surpassed $1,000 an ounce for the first time since February.
