Parents express concerns over redistricting BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

RANDOLPH COUNTY – Parents of students in the Archdale-Trinity area expressed concerns over several options presented by school officials at a public hearing at Trinity High School last night to redistrict kindergartenthrough-eighth-grade attendance lines. Randolph County Schools confirmed earlier this year that there was discussion about converting Archdale Elementary School into an all sixth grade school to reduce

overcrowding in the district’s middle schools. Superintendent Donald Andrews said at the meeting the board also wanted a “clean feeder-pattern,” which was disrupted after the building of a new Wheatmore Middle School was delayed. Currently, students from Archdale Trinity Middle School feed to Trinity and Wheatmore high schools. Marty Trotter, assistant superintendent of operations, presented the options at the meeting which included converting Trindale Elementary or Braxton Craven into a sixth

grade school or keeping the sixth grade at the elementary schools. Each plan had some drawbacks. For example, Braxton Craven doesn’t contain enough land to be converted into a sixth grade school, and the state requires sixth graders to have elective classes such as band that the elementary schools don’t provide. “We won’t do anything next week or next year. There’s too much of a transition being made,” Andrews said about the opening of Wheatmore High School on Monday. Mark Hyde, a parent

whose child graduated through the school district, said all funding should be put aside for the building of Wheatmore Middle School rather than redistricting. “I think one of the great plans is to delay any significant change until we have more of an idea of what things are going to cost and what effect that will be,” Hyde said. Greg Allen, a teacher at Archdale Trinity Middle School with children in the school district, agreed with Hyde. “We should take any funding to redistrict and

put that towards building the new Wheatmore Middle School,” Allen said. Other parents were concerned that athletics would be disrupted if redistricting didn’t occur, including Carol Ann Robles. “If we don’t split (Archdale Trinity Middle School), not as many kids will be able to play sports,” Robles said about the school’s large population. “I would like to see them split in a way that’s best for all involved - the middle schools and elementary schools.” | 888-3617

Group brings amphitheater to Chair City




THOMASVILLE – Construction crews spent Thursday morning installing an amphitheater in Thomasville that officials say will further help revitalize the city’s downtown. Members of People Achieving Community Enhancement, a city committee, have been planning for several months an amphitheater and park in the former Belk parking lot near Memorial Park. Officials had a crane on the site of the amphitheater Thursday to start piecing together the structure. “I think this is going to be one of the cornerstones of the revitalization of downtown Thomasville,” said Martin Beale, a PACE member. “This is definitely going to be an anchor block here, with


Workers put the first arch, which will be one of the roof supports, in place on the new amphitheater. the farmer’s market and the amphitheater and park here now.” Just in time for the Everybody’s Day festival on Sept. 26, the amphitheater should be completed in a week. “I’m real excited that it will be ready for Everybody’s Day,” said David Yemm, a Thomasville City Council member. “They are going to have one of the gospel stages here. I’m just ready for it to be used for a good downtown attraction.” Ben Watford, a PACE member, said earlier this year an amphi-

theater is a continuation of implementing ideas put forward in an Urban Design Assistance Team report. A group of UDAT planners came to Thomasville in 1999 to conduct a study on redeveloping the city’s downtown. Two of the suggestions were a park in downtown and a Thomasville Farmers Market, which PACE helped start several years ago. According to Beale and Yemm, the amphitheater was made possible through a donation from Sue Hunter, a PACE member, and her family in honor of her late hus-

band Dr. Jim Hunter, a former Thomasville councilman. The amphitheater is expected to be named after the former Thomasville physician and city official. After Everybody’s Day, PACE is planning on tearing up the parking lot to plant trees and grass, as well as placing benches on the city-owned property. Aside from Everybody’s Day, the amphitheater will be used for year-round events, such as concerts and church services.

Revitalization effort gets makeover BY PAT KIMBROUGH ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – With a new name, logo and tagline, Core City High Point is getting a makeover of sorts. The nonprofit organization working to promote growth and revitalization of the city’s 11-square-mile urban core announced Thursday that it’s in the process of switching its name to The City Project Inc. A marketing firm, The McNeill Communications Group, recommended the change after getting feedback from about 20 key members of the community, who indicated a need to emphasize the organiza-

tion’s mission of creating an “urban style of living.” Its representatives said the previous name also carried the connotation that the group’s work was limited to downtown High Point. “Core City was just confusing to people. It didn’t communicate what we’re trying to do,” said Wendy Fuscoe, executive director of Core City. “What came out of (the community feedback) was, how do you see High Point, what do you see High Point being – a safe, family-friendly area, walkable, pedestrian-friendly – all of that they wanted to capture in a logo and a tagline.” The logo aims to encap-

sulate defining elements of a city neighborhood by depicting places to sit and gather. The design includes a park bench and streetlight on a street corner above the words, “Creating an Urban Style of Living for High Point.” “Our new branding communicates a sense of energy and community pride, while providing the framework for multiple neighborhoods,” said Aaron Clinard, chairman

of the Core City board. “It is a call to action. We are confident that together we can create mixed-use areas for working and living in an environment that promotes the return of people, businesses and services to our city and its neighborhoods.” The new branding scheme includes potential logos for each of the eight areas of the city that the project is seeking to revitalize: Uptowne High


Point, Washington Drive, the West End, South Main GTCC, Market District, Oak Hill, Five Points and College Village. Core City, which works to identify and develop incentives, initiatives and funding for neighborhood reinvestment, was established and funded by the city last year. The city budgeted $404,800 for the organization for the current fiscal year. | 888-3531

Guilford among counties with highest DWI rate

Good times

Ex-political candidate pleads guilty to fraud


HIGH POINT – Guilford was among the counties with the highest number of driving-while-impaired charges filed during a recent crackdown by state and local law enforcement officers. State officials announced Thursday that officers in Guilford cited 149 people for DWI during the Labor Day “Booze It & Lose It” campaign, which ran from Aug. 21 through Monday. That was the third highest tally in the state, behind Wake (254) and Mecklenburg (229). A total of 3,514 DWI charges were filed statewide, part of the 105,370 traffic and criminal citations issued across the state during the campaign. “Law enforcement officers statewide are the key reason this initiative has been so successful over the past 15 years, and I commend their continued dedication,” Gov. Bev Perdue said in a statement about the campaign. “Their efforts during this campaign allowed for

Central Davidson football players part of flu outbreak BY DARRICK IGNASIAK ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

DAVIDSON COUNTY – Sixteen varsity football players are part of a flu outbreak at Central Davidson High School, according to Gene Poindexter, the school’s athletic director. Poindexter said Thursday some of the school’s football players reported earlier in the week that they had the flu, and the numbers with symptoms continued to escalate this week. The flu outbreak canceled the junior varsity and varsity football games between Central Davidson High and North Davidson High for Thursday night and tonight, school officials said. “We have been taking extra precautions since early in the week to disinfect everything and make


Videotape matter slated to go before judge BY DARRICK IGNASIAK ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

RANDOLPH COUNTY – A Raleigh law firm has been scheduled a hearing in Randolph County Superior Court on its request for a judge to vacate his orders that sealed a videotape surrounding the recent fatal shooting on Interstate 85 of a University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill student. The firm of Everett, Gaskins, Hancock & Stevens LLP will make the request on behalf of The High Point Enterprise, The News & Observer of Raleigh, WRAL-TV of Raleigh, The Associated Press and The Daily Tarheel, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill student newspaper. The media outlets request that V. Bradford Long, a senior resident Superior Court judge, release an Archdale Police Department dashboard camera video that caught an officer opening fire on Courtland Smith.

The hearing in Randolph County Superior Court will take place in Asheboro at 9:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 18. Smith, a 21-year-old junior and fraternity president from Houston, was shot by Officer Jeremy Paul Flinchum during a traffic stop on Interstate 85 just before 5 a.m. Aug. 23, according to the N.C. State Bureau of Investigation. The shooting occurred after officers conducted a traffic stop “regarding a subject who called for police assistance and indicated that he was suicidal,” according to an Archdale police news release. Long previously had sealed two audio recordings surrounding the shooting. Both of the audio recordings since have been released. Guilford Metro 911, which Smith called for assistance, released an audio recording Aug. 26 that indicated Smith was driving drunk, suicidal and armed with a 9 mm pistol. The recording ends with an officer yelling for Smith to stay

in his car before he tells police he had to “pull something out.” Police had previously said that “once the vehicle came to a stop, a confrontation ensued” and then Flinchum shot Smith. A day after Guilford Metro 911 released its audio recording, Long allowed public disclosure of an Archdale police traffic audio recording. The Archdale police recording indicates officers attempted to tell the man to get back into his vehicle moments before police opened fire. It remains unclear by both recordings if Smith displayed a weapon to officers or was shot by police in his vehicle. Archdale Police Chief Darrell Gibbs said Thursday that the two officers who responded to the suicidal call remain on administrative leave. Noel Talley, an SBI spokesperson, said her agency continues to investigate the shooting.

sure we are telling the kids to wash their hands,” Poindexter said. “Everything that we can possibly do, we have been doing. It’s just that it has hit us, and there isn’t much we can do right now.” According to Dr. Phil Rapp, director of special projects for Davidson County Schools, no other schools in the system have a flu outbreak. Rapp said he did not know if any of the Central Davidson High students had swine flu. He noted the games were canceled to prevent the flu from spreading. “I think they saw it might be a problem for them this week,” he said. “Instead of getting better, it got worse and didn’t get any better. They decided that this wouldn’t expose the visiting team as well as the teammates who are still well, so to speak.”

Study: Time not right for rail MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

TRIAD — Plans for commuter rail in the Triad will take a back seat after a study showed that it would attract only about 10 percent of the riders needed to make it viable. The two-year study looked at the feasibility of building a 33-mile rail corridor between Hanes Mall and N.C. A&T State University in Greensboro. The results were released this week at a board meeting of the Piedmont Authority for Regional Transportation. PART will focus on improving regional bus service while keeping an

eye on the possibility of rail in the future, said the agency’s director, Brent McKinney. McKinney estimated that about 1,000 commuters a day would have used the rail service. To be a viable project, that figure needed to be closer to 10,000 a day. Federal financing for rail projects is limited, and the Triad’s project would not be competitive with other cities looking at rail, said Terry Snow, a High Point vice president for Wilbur Smith Associates, the consulting company that did the study. The projected ridership is “not at a level that would be competitive,”

ATLANTA (AP) — Health officials are reporting what may be the first instance of a Tamiflu-resistant swine flu virus spreading from one person to another. It happened in July at a camp in western North Carolina, where two teenage girls — cabin mates — were diagnosed with the same drug-resistant strain of swine flu. Tamiflu is one of two flu medicines that help against swine flu, and health officials have been closely watching for signs that the virus is mutating, making the drugs ineffective. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is aware of nine U.S. cases of Tamiflu-resistance since

swine flu first appeared in April, but all the others were single cases. In this instance, there seemed to be a spread. “That was the concerning thing about these cases,” said Dr. Zack Moore, a respiratory disease epidemiologist for the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services. The virus may have spread from one girl to the other, or it’s possible that the girls got it from another camper. It’s also possible that they each developed a resistant strain independently, but that’s unlikely, Moore added. Both girls had been given Tamiflu before they got sick — as a preventive

Goodwin won’t run again RALEIGH (AP) — North Carolina state Rep. Melanie Goodwin won’t seek a fourth term in the Legislature next year in a decision she says will give her more time with her young children. The Richmond County Democrat announced her decision recently on the

will be ready once rail is needed. For example, bridge construction in the Triad should be done in a way that makes trains feasible, McKinney said, and the railroad right of way along Stratford Road should be preserved. PART was considering using a parallel track to Norfolk Southern’s line between the mall and downtown Winston-Salem by way of Stratford Road. The commuter lines would have run alongside the existing tracks, which were built for freight, not passenger lines. The existing lines have not been used for years.

Snow said. “Not even close.” If the project had gone forward, the federal government would have paid for half of the $550 million project, with the rest split by state and local governments. McKinney estimated that even had the ridership been there, it would take a minimum of nine years to have rail service up and running, although smaller segments of a line could be completed by then. With the results of the study, there is no timetable for rail, McKinney said. But he said that plans must be made now to ensure that things

measure — after an outbreak of swine flu at the camp. They were among more than 600 campers and camp staff treated. That may have been part of the problem: Overuse of medicines can contribute to viruses becoming drug resistant. The CDC this week issued revised guidance advising against giving flu drugs to prevent illness in most healthy people, even if they may have been exposed to an infected person. The CDC recommends

fast treatment with Tamiflu or Relenza for anyone hospitalized with a flulike illness. They also advise prompt treatment at the first sign of symptoms for those at high risk for serious complications, including pregnant women, children younger than 5, and people with certain chronic conditions like asthma and heart disease. “Tamiflu is still considered effective. This is just a reminder we need to be cautious with these drugs,” Moore said.

MIKE HUGHES: War on Terror should be our biggest concern. TOMORROW

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


We don’t know how to really win a war, now

We will never win wars as long as we worry about collateral damage and our enemies use it as a weapon. We are fighting an enemy that we label as a terrorist because he chooses to fight in civilian clothes and sleep with his neighbors, who might be sympathetic to his cause or might not be. We did not win the first Gulf War because we failed to follow up and remove a dictator from power while we were there. We were afraid our allies might get miffed and pull out just as they did in the second Gulf War and leave us holding the bag. Our troops have fought with their hands tied behind their backs since the end of World War II. They have not lost wars. Politicians have lost wars. Our troops have fought in Iraq for more years than World War II lasted. It took them that long to oust a dictator, and in the span of one year we installed a dictator government that answers to no one. Our troops are still over there dying. The best president we had in the 20th century was Harry Truman, who had the guts to save our own and not worry about the enemy or their well-being. That generation gave you a reason to live. This

What about revitalizing High Point’s south side? Well, here we go again. I thought High Point wanted to revitalize downtown. Doesn’t downtown also include that area south of the railroad? So what is the first thing that the Core City planners want to do? They want to make improvements in north High Point. Sure, let’s do something to help improve north High Point. Poor north High Point; they don’t have any restaurants, shops, movie theaters, specialty stores, home improvement stores or anything like that. Let’s be sure that this deprived area of the city gets some well-deserved attention. I can understand how left out they must be feeling after all these

years of neglect by the city planners. Based on what I read, south High Point, below Guilford Technical Community College, isn’t even slated for any improvements. I’ve made this suggestion before, and I still think it appropriate, especially in light of all the attention poor north High Point is receiving. Why don’t we give everything south of GTCC to Archdale? I’m sure they could find something useful to do with this area, some way to revitalize it. As a matter of fact, this area would greatly benefit from the extra attention it would receive. Why, south High Point – or rather, north Archdale – may even be able to attract additional restaurants, shops, movie theaters, specialty stores, home improvement stores or things such as that. Especially if that area was indeed being looked after by an attentive City Hall. It’s something to think about. MIKE ROBERTSON Trinity

It’s amazing to me the many times President Obama has lied to the people of the United States, and he has never been called about it: • He said no bills would be put into effect without 10 days to study them. • He said he would get rid of lobbyists. • He said the United States is not a Christian nation. • He said the stimulus bill would help people out of work and only part of the money has been spent. If you fool me once and tell me a lie, I might overlook it. But not for eight or 10 times. HARRY LEE DARR Thomasville

This year, as the war in Afghanistan – spawned by the 9/11 attacks – intensifies, there’s news of special interest to family and friends of those such as Randolph County’s Sandy Bradshaw, who died on United Airlines Flight 93 when it crashed into the western Pennsylvania countryside. Last week, the National Park Service announced that property negotiations holding up creation of a national memorial near Shanksville, Pa., had been concluded, paving the way for construction of that memorial to be completed in time for the 10th anniversary of the crash in 2011. The purchase of 1,400 acres around the crash site will allow a Nov. 7 groundbreaking for the $58 million memorial. The federal government will pay $28 million, private donations will fund $30 million of the cost. Also, on Wednesday, a large bronze plaque was unveiled at the U.S. Capitol in memory of the 40 passengers and crew members aboard Flight 93 who went to their deaths fighting terrorists who had hijacked their aircraft. Bradshaw, an attendant on Flight 93, was among the leaders of the revolt that overpowered the four terrorist hijackers, resulting in them crashing the airplane into the ground instead of its intended target in Washington, either the U.S. Capitol or the White House. Just days after 9/11, the Enterprise compared the crew and passengers of Flight 93 to Revolutionary War minutemen, citizens who sprang into action to defend their homeland when attacked. Such a national memorial to the crew and passengers of Flight 93 – patriots all – is well-deserved.

Health care reform won’t hurt medical services for veterans


oday, Sept. 11, is Patriot Day. If you fly the American Flag on a standard flagpole, it should be displayed at half-staff. “Our debt to the heroic men and valiant women in the service of our country can never to repaid. They have earned our undying gratitude. America will never forget their sacrifices.” President Harry S. Truman spoke these words. Since so much misinformation is being passed along about the national health care reform effort, I want to make certain all veterans understand clearly the following statement: If you are eligible for health care from the Department of Veterans Affairs, you will remain eligible. There is no impact on VA health care. President Obama’s budget expands access to the VA, to an additional 500,000 veterans previously denied coverage. In a speech April 9, President Obama said, “For their Service and sacrifice warm words of thanks from a grateful nation are more than warranted, but they aren’t nearly enough. We also owe our veterans the care that they were promised and the benefits that they have earned. We have a sacred trust with those who wear the uniform of the United States of America. It is a commitment that begins at enlistment and it must never end.” So veterans, please be comforted in the fact that your health care will not change under health reform efforts. There is no effect. This message is from Matt Flavin, director of Veterans and Wounded Warrior Policy. The Department of Defense recently placed an order for 5,244 (M-ATV’s) Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicles, with the Oshkosh Corp. These will be used in Afghanistan, where they are so badly needed. I watch the news and the terrain there is very much the same as the mountains of North Korea; where we were caught and surround-

ed by the Chinese Army. The mountain roads were no more than cart paths with almost no place to move over without a deep valley below. I am so thankful that we have helicopters now that can get to the troops. During the VETERAN’S Korean War, we had only small choppers, used mostly to watch VIEWS enemy troop movement. They did help with picking up our Stan wounded troops. I recall one of Spangle Sr. our Chosin Few Marines was ■■■ picked up, and he was so tall that they had to hang his feet out of the door and he suffered from frostbite the rest of his life. I am very glad to see the Humvees being replaced, I know many of you will remember they did not have the armored plating underneath, and so many of our troops are amputees now. Please mark your calendars: There will be a spaghetti supper at Emerywood Baptist Church, 1300 Country Club Drive at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 10. This special event is to raise money for the much-needed roof for Caring Services/Vets Safety Net, which is located on the corner of Chestnut and Broad streets. Eric Horner, a well-known gospel singer, is traveling from out of state to help raise money for this very worthwhile project. Horner is dedicated to helping raise funds for veterans projects. I know this is several weeks away, so you will have plenty of time to get your tickets. God bless America and all other nations. Semper Fi! STAN SPANGLE SR. is a 21-year veteran of the Marine Corps, serving in Korea and Vietnam. He’s a member of numerous veterans organizations.

Death rate for children under 5 continues decline

FREETOWN, Sierra Leone – More than 200 people, including many schoolchildren returning from holidays, were missing and feared dead Thursday, a day after a wooden boat capsized at sea, authorities said. Thirty-nine passengers have been rescued so far off the coast of the West African nation, said Naval Lt. Cmdr. Mao Suma, who is in charge of the rescue operation, which will continue at least until Saturday.

Riots in Uganda’s capital kill 7 people

KAMPALA, Uganda – At least seven people were killed in Uganda when supporters of the traditional ruler of the country’s largest ethnic group clashed with security forces in the country’s capital. AP photographer Stephen Wandera counted seven bodies as police and the army clashed with stone-throwing protesters who burned tires Thursday in Kampala.

Berlusconi says he won’t resign over sex scandal

ROME – Premier Silvio Berlusconi brushed off questions about any possible resignation over his sex scandal Thursday, saying he has been Italy’s best premier ever. Berlusconi also said he was considering suing the woman at the center of the scandal, Patrizia D’Addario, a self-proclaimed prostitute. ENTERPRISE NEWS SERVICE REPORTS

Blame game Afghan reporters fault NATO for colleague’s death KABUL (AP) – Afghan journalists blamed a kidnapped colleague’s death on what they called a reckless rescue operation by British forces and said Thursday that foreign troops have a “double standard� for Western and Afghan lives. The death of Afghan translator and reporter Sultan Munadi during a raid

that freed a British-Irish journalist for The New York Times could further fuel anger among some Afghans over the conduct of foreign troops. That ire threatens to weaken support for the fight against a resurgent Taliban. Afghan President Hamid Karzai condemned the killing as did his main foe in the country’s disputed presidential election,

Afghan body throws out ballots from 83 vote sites KABUL (AP) – A U.N.backed fraud commission threw out votes from 83 polling stations in areas of strong support for Afghan President Hamid Karzai on Thursday, starting a long process that could force Karzai into a runoff if enough ballots are discarded. The Aug. 20 poll has been increasingly marred by reports of ballot-box stuffing and suspicious tallies. A U.S. monitoring group has said “large numbers of polling stations� had more than 100 percent turnout and President Hamid Karzai’s top challenger has accused him of “state-engineered� fraud. Abdullah Abdullah says the the scale of cheating in Afghani-

stan’s Aug. 20 election is only now becoming clear, and that he expects enough fraudulent Karzai votes to be thrown out to trigger a runoff.

The Afghan journalists’ accusations came as British Prime Minister Gordon Brown’s office said that the rescue operation Wednesday in the northern province of Kunduz was an attempt to recover both Munadi and reporter Stephen Farrell and that it was authorized as the “best chance of protecting life.�

White House cautiously optimistic on stimulus jobs

Biden to mark Sept. 11 in NYC WASHINGTON (AP) – The White House says Vice President Joe Biden will travel to New York today to mark the anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks. Spokesman Robert Gibbs says Biden will take part in the memorial service honoring the victims. The vice president’s wife, Jill Biden, also will attend. President Barack Obama will be at the Pentagon Friday to visit the memorial to those who died there in the 2001 attacks and meet victims’ families. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano also will be at the memorial service in New York.

Studies: 1 dose of swine flu vaccine works

WASHINGTON (AP) – Good news in the world’s flu fight: One dose of the new swine flu vaccine looks strong enough to protect adults – and can spark protection within 10 days of the shot, Australian and U.S. researchers said Thursday. Australian shot maker CSL Ltd. published results of a study that found between 75 percent and 96 percent of vaccinated people should be protected with one dose – remarkable considering scientists thought it would take two doses. U.S. data to be released Friday confirm those findings, and show the protection starts rapidly, Dr. Anthony Fauci of the National Institutes of Health told The Associated Press. “This is quite good news,” Fauci said.

Sears to relocate call center to mall BY PAUL B. JOHNSON ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – Sears, Roebuck and Co. plans to relocate its customer service call center in the city to the vacant anchor store location at Oak Hollow Mall, sources tell The High Point Enterprise. Sears would move its Product Services Marketing Center on Brentwood Street to the former Steve & Barry’s location, said three independent sources, who are familiar with the deal but asked to remain anonymous. The space, which formerly housed a Goody’s clothing store as well, has been vacant since the athletic apparel retailer Steve & Barry’s closed late last year. Oak Hollow Mall General Manager Vickee Arm-

strong said she couldn’t comment on the possible relocation of the Sears call center. “Unfortunately, there’s not anything for us to discuss at this time. I can’t validate, deny or affirm,” Armstrong said Thursday. A corporate spokesman for Sears at its headquarters in suburban Chicago couldn’t be reached for comment by the Enterprise. High Point Economic Development Corp. President Loren Hill said that he couldn’t comment on any possible city involvement in a Sears relocation. “It is our office’s policy not to comment on any projects on which we may or may not be cur-

rently working,” Hill said. The Sears call center is one of the city’s top 20 employers, according to statistics from the EDC. The call center has 490 employees, according to the EDC’s 2008 annual report. If the mall succeeds in recruiting Sears, it would continue its recent success landing nontraditional tenants to fill vacant space.

Logging on Thomasville High students to get laptops

THOMASVILLE – Thomasville High School student Erica Hudson gets a little stressed when teachers assign work that needs to be done at home on the computer. A $1.5 million technology grant awarded last week to Thomasville City Schools will allow the system take some stress off students, such as Hudson, who don’t have computers at home. After giving teachers staff development for about a year, school officials plan to buy a laptop for each student at Thomasville High School by the 2010-11 school year. “Some people stress to find computers to use at home to do their work when teachers assign work on the computer and they don’t have it,” Hudson said. “If they were to give us a laptop, it would be a great idea instead of stressing. There are a lot of students who don’t have computers at home because everybody is not the same. Everybody doesn’t have the money to go out and get a computer.” Last year, a $1 million technology grant, known to school officials as an IMPACT grant, allowed the system to buy 90 laptops for students. Currently, Thomasville High teachers share the laptops as the comput-

another tool.” Mike Ingram, the system’s technology director, said the $1.5 million worth of funding also will be used to implement a student electronic portfolio at Liberty Drive Elementary that will allow students to demonstrate their knowl-

edge of the core curriculum and their understanding of technology as a resource for creating digital content. The technology grant also will be used at Thomasville Middle School, according to Ingram. “If we are going to promote the idea of 21st

century learning, then it’s absolutely critical that we provide the tools to our children that will allow them to be 21st century learners so they will be prepared for whatever endeavor they do,” Ingram said. | 888-3657

Noble’s status remains unclear BY PAUL B. JOHNSON ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – The status of one of the city’s marquee restaurants, Restaurant J. Basul Noble, remains unclear more than two months after it ceased operations at its longtime downtown location. Restaurant owner Tim Applegate served his last customers at the location

in the Showplace West building June 27. Since Noble’s ceased service there, Capstone Property Group has announced that a new dining venue, 100 High, will begin serving customers in the former Noble’s space next month during the fall High Point Market. When Applegate announced his plans in June to phase out Noble’s down-

town, he indicated to The High Point Enterprise that he would open in a new, smaller location in the city by late summer. But there appears to be no planning or building documents at City Hall that indicate work is under way on a new space for the fine dining restaurant. Applegate couldn’t be reached for comment Thursday by the Enterprise.

One location that had been under consideration for Noble’s is a space in the Time Square center at N. Main Street and Lexington Avenue. A representative with Riedco Inc., which leases space at Time Square, said discussions were held with Noble’s for the vacant space. But the Riedco representative said No-


bles isn’t coming to Time Square. In June, Applegate told the Enterprise that he was ceasing operation downtown because of the recession and fundamental shifts in the local economy since Noble’s opened 26 years ago. Noble’s was in an 11,000-square-foot space at Showplace West. | 888-3528

PEOPLE’S FUNERAL SERVICE “People Serving All People”

Weather Channel founder dies NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — Frank Batten Sr., who built a communications empire that spanned newspapers and cable television and created The Weather Channel, died Thursday. He was 82. Batten, the retired chairman of privately held Landmark Communications and a former chairman of the board of The Associated Press, died in Norfolk after a prolonged illness, Landmark Vice Chairman Richard F. Barry III said. A visionary executive who earned a reputation for spotting media trends, Batten was at the forefront of development of cable television in the 1960s. He developed The Weather Channel in the 1980s while other media leaders scoffed at the idea that people would watch programming devoted solely to weather. In 2008, Landmark sold the channel to NBC Universal and two private equity firms for $3.5 billion. The company had put its other businesses up for sale but suspended those plans amid the faltering economic conditions. With a fortune estimated at $2.3 billion, Batten ranked 190th on Forbes magazine’s 2008 list of the 400 richest Americans.

at 888-3511

“I think that most accomplishments in organizations are officially the result of teamwork rather than a brilliant performance by one person,” Batten said in a 2005 Associated Press oral history interview. “Accomplishing teamwork is another matter,” he added. “That’s not easy, I think. And again it gets down to creating an environment in which people work successfully in teams, and are recognized for it.” He served as AP board chairman from 1982-87.

Explorers probe WWII Navy vessel for control of East Coast shipping lanes, maritime archaeologist Joe Hoyt said. Finding a World War II-era vessel is rare, researcher Richard Lawrence said. Of the 137 Allied, German and merchant vessels lost off North Carolina during World War II, about 40 have been located, said Lawrence, head of the state Department of Cultural Resources’ North Carolina Archaeology Branch.

Cumberland won’t require grad project MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

FAYETTEVILLE — The Cumberland County School Board voted unanimously Tuesday to delay requiring students to complete a four-part project before graduation. Lavetta B. Henderson, the head of curriculum and

Dear Alex: I agree that timing is important. My office was showered with responses from readers who were steamed over my response to that letter. Read on:

Dear Abby: The guys and I enjoy reading your column out loud to see if we agree or not with your advice. We were unanimous in our disagreement with your advice to “Still Hot and Bothered.” We would have been

dents -- many who are seniors this year -- were originally required to complete a research paper, a product, a presentation and a portfolio on a topic of their choice. In June, a state law went into effect that delayed for a year statewide implementation of the project. However, the law allows local boards of education

to start the projects early -- if the projects were not made a requirement for graduation. “Many schools and districts across North Carolina have had a graduation project in some form or fashion for a decade or more,” state School Board Chairman Bill Harrison said in April.


Wives find many ways to cool off hot husbands D

ear Abby: At the age of 72, having had two spouses over the years, I need to put in my two cents regarding the letter from “Still Hot and Bothered in Georgia” (July 8). I have learned that some women won’t say “no!” to a husband’s amorous advances, especially in the morning. But they will try to distract him by scrubbing the tub, spotting a spider on the wall, feeding the cat or saying she forgot to fold the laundry and has to do it before it wrinkles. Whether it’s conscious or unconscious, they do it to cool their husbands off on a “hot” morning. “Still Hot and Bothered” may need to give some thought to what turns his wife on or off – especially the timing. After all, we are from Mars and they are from Venus. – Alex in Blue Bell, Pa.

The graduation project, or senior project, was originally added as a graduation requirement for the 2006-07 freshman class. Those stu-

torqued if our wife had stayed in the shower to clean it instead of coming to ADVICE bed for a good romp. Dear We also Abby would have ■■■ showered with our wife to start the festivities early and then moved to the bedroom. Several of the guys said they’d have gotten into the shower and made the cleaning come to a halt. There’s a time for cleaning, and it’s not when your husband is waiting with his motor running. – The Guys in The Electric Lab, Harrisonburg, Va.

Dear Abby: I’m not against spontaneous cleaning (I do it myself), but the fact that the wife would rather clean than spend time with her husband tells me she’s either unable to read his signals or she just doesn’t care to be close and intimate with him. It also shows a lack of judgment, compassion and understanding on her part. If the situation were reversed and he had decided he’d rather watch sports than be with his wife, I’m sure she would have been equally upset. I don’t think the rules should be different for

men and women in this regard. And yes, I am a woman. – Heather in Kankakee, Ill.

Dear Abby: It appears that these days couples never have time for each other. Instead, they have their “individual” priorities before their “married” priorities. When you compare the life expectancy of women vs. men, that woman will probably have years to clean the shower by herself without worrying about her mate. – Ken in Sulphur, La. Dear Abby: Men just don’t get it! Women don’t have on/off switches like men do. Atmosphere is very important for us. My husband enjoys “getting close” in the mornings, too – but I usually wake up with my to-do list running in my head. It is very difficult for me to get in the mood when there’s work to be done. Obviously, the wife in that letter wasn’t ready to play. Instead of getting upset, her husband should have gotten creative and helped to set her mood. – Brenda in Fort Worth DEAR ABBY is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

uestion: I have some unopened flower seed packets. Will I be able to store them to use next year, and if so, what is the best way? Answer: Generally, seed packets can be stored, under the correct conditions, at least until next year. The goal is to store the unopened packet in conditions exactly opposite to the conditions required for the seeds to germinate. Typically, seeds need light, heat, and water to germinate. So your best bet for storage is putting your unopened flower seed packets into an air- and water-tight container and store the container in a cool, dark, dry place until after the last frost date next spring. Many people store seeds in their refrigerator in the “crisper” drawer. Be

Class’s 60th reunion a smashing success

‘Yards and Neighbors’ workshops set

A big Thank You is in order to the High Point Enterprise and Mary Bogest for the wonderful article Aug. 23, about the 60th reunion of the High Point High School Class of 1949. Apparently it was extremely interesting to not only our classmates but to tons of High Point Enterprise readers because the response has been absolutely overwhelming and congratulatory. Thanks also to the String and Splinter for coming to our rescue. We had originally planned to locate at Nobles. The Class of ‘49 is honored by inclusion in the marker at the Veterans Memorial of contributors who helped fund its establishment. The proximity of Nobles would have given us a chance to walk over as a group and view the memorial and our connection to it. However, the closing of Nobles meant a change, and the String and Splinter came to our rescue and provided us with outstanding accommodations and wonderful food for our luncheon. In addition, we were still able to include the Veterans Memorial. After our lunch, a program, and socializing, High Point University sent two of their buses over to pick us up for a tour of the campus. Thanks to them our first stop was at the memorial. Then it was on to a fantastic tour of the amazing HPU campus including entry into three of the buildings. Wow! It was a breathtaking experience and we are forever grateful to HPU and to Dr. Don Scarborough. Needless to say it was one of the highlights of our reunion. Only the future knows if we will have another reunion, but if not we can know that this reunion was a huge success thanks to the Enterprise, HPU, S&S and our classmates, and this reunion will last forever in our memories. THE REUNION COMMITTEE, HPHS Class of 1949

let’s learn all about...

On January 24, 1848, James Marshall discovered gold on the banks of the American River located close to Coloma, California. Mr. Marshall had been sent to the area by his employer, Swiss entrepreneur John Sutter, to build a sawmill for Sutter’s ranch. Mr. Sutter was a wealthy businessman who had come to California to build his estate which was comprised of a fort and a ranch, thousands of cattle, and farmlands. Sutter employed many hundred of workers and owed many debts. Sutter and Marshall had no interest in the newly discovered gold, so they decided to keep the discovery to themselves. Word got out anyway and was spread quickly by another man, Samuel Brannan. Brannan soon became the wealthiest man in San Francisco, but not from gold. He was a merchant, selling mining supplies to gold diggers. Sutter lost everything to the gold rush. Many Americans left their homes and jobs seeking the new, easy fortune. During 1849, so many people came to California that the gold diggers were nicknamed “The 49’ers.” Americans desiring to go to California had two Find the words hidden in the puzzle below.

Chronic cough has three major causes


ear Dr. Donohue: For about a year, I have been plagued by an irritating cough. When it started, it was so severe that I fractured my spine. An ENT (ear, nose and throat) doctor said it was due to the trickle of postnasal drip. I then saw an allergist, who found no allergies. He had me stop taking the blood pressure medicine lisinopril. No help. I saw another ENT, who could offer no solution. If you have any ideas, I would appreciate them. – M.K.


A cough has a purpose. It clears the airways of secretions and foreign material. Coughs lasting for more than two months are called chronic coughs, and these coughs rarely serve a useful purpose. The irritation they cause makes them self-perpetuating. Asthma, postnasal drip and GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease; heartburn) are the three major causes of chronic cough. Other possibilities include medicines. Your lisinopril (Zestril, Prinivil) is one. It’s an ACE inhibitor, a class of medicines most effective for blood pressure control but that often cause coughing. Cancer is another cough-causer, and it’s a most serious cause. If you haven’t had a chest X-ray, you should have one. Asthma can occur without wheezing. That kind of asthma is best discovered through breathing tests. Postnasal drip, the















annoying trickle of mucus into the throat, stimulates a reflex cough. Nasal irrigaHEALTH tion with saltwater Dr. Paul and nasal Donohue deconges■■■ tants can put an end to postnasal drip. GERD, gastroesophageal reflux disease, is the up-splashing of stomach acid and digestive juices into the swallowing tube – the esophagus. Those juices can reach the throat and trigger coughing. Heartburn is usually the prominent symptom, but the reflux can occur without any heartburn. I see you used to take omeprazole but stopped. Why? It’s suppresses stomach acid production. Have you tried simple things to soothe the throat irritation that triggers coughing? Cough lozenges are helpful. So is sipping warm beverages, like tea. If you’re getting nowhere fast, a visit to another ENT or a lung doctor would be the route to take. Dear Dr. Donohue: I read an article about a man who underwent chemotherapy for treatment of lymphoma. He was then stricken with shingles. I, too, had chemotherapy and radiation, and in my last week of therapy, I was struck with shingles. Is there a connection here? – C.P. Shingles results when

the awakened chickenpox virus travels down nerves to the skin. The virus lives with a person for life once he or she has been infected. Later in life, when there’s a temporary lapse in immunity, the virus leaves the protection of the nerve it has lived in, and the result is a shingles outbreak. Chemotherapy and radiation lower one’s immunity. The outbreak of shingles with chemo or radiation is connected. Dear Dr. Donohue: I am a 62-year-old man with some health issues. I take prescription drugs for diabetes and high blood pressure. At my last exam, a blood test for PSA was 2.65. My sister says this is too high, but my doctor says it is of no concern. Who is right? – D.F. The doctor. Most experts set the upper limits for normal PSA at 4 for someone of your age. PSA – prostate specific antigen – generates a lot of debate among those who are qualified to promulgate the best ways for detecting prostate cancer. Arguments about this test and its values haven’t been settled to everyone’s satisfaction, but the 4 number is a safe number for you.

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

NEW YORK (AP) – E-book fans will have to wait for a download of Sen. Ted Kennedy’s memoir. “True Compass,� one of the year’s most anticipated books, is scheduled to come out next week.

United Way puts helmets up for grabs




ere’s the deal! Are you up to the challenge? Bobby Smith, president of United Way of Greater High Point, reports that United Way of North Carolina has two signed ACC football helmets available for you to win. One is signed by all 12 of the ACC head coaches. The other is signed by 26 of the best football players in the conference this year. “If you’ve got game,” the HERE & informaTHERE tion from United Way Tom says, “one Blount of these ■■■ helmets could be yours to use” in your company, club or other group UW campaign. Just send a short e-mail to Jcox@ describing your innovative idea to use the helmet and the potential impact it could have on your campaign. You have to hurry, though! Submit your e-mail with the subject line “Got Game” by Wednesday. Jill Cox of UWNC says two winners will be selected by a volunteer panel of judges. Winners will be notified by Sept. 21. All this spurred Smith to ask if locals could offer a helmet autographed by High Point residents who at one time played in the ACC. Clever idea! If you have a clever, workable response, send it to Smith at Bobby.Smith@united without delay.

The Arc’s Teresa McKeon uses dolls to illustrate the effects of fetal alcohol syndrome.

Sobering thought Incidences of fetal alcohol syndrome are far too common, and one local agency wants to help stop it BY JIMMY TOMLIN ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER


IGH POINT – The Arc of High Point is encouraging expectant mothers – and even women who are thinking of having a baby – to pause for a cause this weekend. The Arc on Saturday will sponsor “The Pregnant Pause,” a fun, interactive event being held in observance of Fetal Alcohol Awareness Day. The free event will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Oak Hollow Mall. “This is an opportunity for us to share information with women who are pregnant – or women who are thinking about becoming pregnant – about how much influence alcohol has on their unborn child,” says Teresa McKeon, director of outreach for The Arc. “The leading preventable cause of intellectual disabilities in the Western world is drinking during pregnancy. If a woman doesn’t drink during pregnancy, she will never have a child with fetal alcohol syndrome.” Fetal alcohol syndrome disorders are a group of disorders that result from a woman drinking alcohol during pregnancy. Extreme cases can result in fetal death, but more common symptoms include abnormal facial features,



“The Pregnant Pause,” an Arc of High Point program in observance of Fetal Alcohol Awareness Day, will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at Center Court of Oak Hollow Mall. The theme of the event is “A Pregnant Woman Never Drinks Alone.” Admission is free. For more information, call Teresa McKeon, director of outreach for The Arc of High Point, at 883-0650, Ext. 230, or visit growth problems, central nervous system problems, intellectual disabilities, memory and communication problems, and limited vision and/or hearing. “There’s no safe amount of alcohol that can be drunk during pregnancy, because there’s no filter,” McKeon says. “It’s almost as if you were directly feeding that growing baby the entire content of whatever Mommy’s taking in, but a lot of moms don’t realize that impact.” Saturday’s event will kick off at 11 a.m. with a Diaper Derby for children ages 6 months to 24 months, with prizes awarded to


the winners. JCPenney will stage a fashion show for post-maternity wear beginning at noon, and at 1 p.m. will be “The Mommy Mixer,” at which attendees will be served delicious, non-alcoholic beverages to emphasize the importance of drinking non-alcoholic beverages during pregnancy. The event will also kick off a coaster campaign and poster contest designed to increase awareness of fetal alcohol syndrome. During the coaster campaign, which will last through the end of October, any woman with one of the designated coasters can bring it to a participating restaurant – details are on the coaster – for a free, non-alcoholic beverage. Youths in grades 3 through 12 are invited to design posters exemplifying the theme, “A Pregnant Woman Never Drinks Alone.” The winner will receive a $50 cash prize. Also, door prizes will be given throughout the course of the event. “The problem is growing,” McKeon says. “About 40,000 babies a year are born with symptoms of fetal alcohol syndrome. We’re trying to turn those numbers around.” | 888-3579

Childhood obesity is a national epidemic. It is a health issue that affects our state and local community. To help combat obesity on a local level, a grant from the Randolph Hospital Community Health Foundation in collaboration with Randolph Hospital, Randolph Health Improvement Partnership (RHIP) and the Randolph/Asheboro YMCA, is providing a new program for adolescent boys and girls called Be RHEAL, or “Ready for Healthy Eating and Active Lifestyles.” The program divides boys and girls in an effort to focus on each gender’s unique challenges to a healthy lifestyle. On Sept. 21, the Be RHEAL program for boys ages 10-14 will begin and on Sept. 23 for girls aged 10-14. The program focuses on healthy eating and positive self-esteem while implementing a variety of fun, interactive fitness programs to teach the importance of regular physical activity. Those wishing to participate must be willing to commit to the full six-week program. The boys’ program will be held between Sept. 21 and Oct. 26 on Mondays from 6:30 to 7:45 p.m. The girls’ program will be held between Sept. 23 and Oct. 28 on Wednesdays from 6:30 to 7:45 p.m. All classes will be held at the Asheboro/Randolph YMCA Teen Center, 343 NC Highway 42 N in Asheboro. Space is limited and registration is required by Wednesday to attend. For more information or to register for the Be RHEAL program, call Janet Hughes at (336) 633-7711.

Friday, Sept. 11, 2009 CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Ariana Richards, 30; Ludacris, 32; Harry Connick Jr., 42; Moby, 44 HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Proceed with caution. The last thing you want is to come across as a knowit-all. Emotional matters will cause undue stress if you promise too much. Being well-organized and charming will be your ticket to success. Protect your home and family. Your numbers are 10, 12, 22, 26, 34, 37, 40 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Getting angry won’t solve anything. Don’t give in to pressure at home when a little outside information will help you fight back and win. Someone you love and respect will have some valuable ideas that can help you raise interest in what you are pursuing. ★★★★ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Someone playing emotional games with you is likely to tempt you. Say no to any added responsibilities. It’s important to protect your home and family from anyone trying to mislead or take advantage of you. ★★★ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Stick to the people, projects and pastimes that will help you get ahead. As soon as you get involved with negative people or those wanting to change the way you are, you will be fighting to hold on instead of getting on with your life. The choice is yours. ★★★ CANCER (June 21-July 22): It’s about time you made some changes at home and with regard to your relationships with family. Talk with everyone about your dreams, hopes and wishes for the future. You’ll be surprised how many will stand beside. ★★★ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You can make headway if you get involved in something you feel strongly about. The people you meet and the talks you have will lead to an interesting proposal and partnership. It’s time to take charge and be a leader. ★★★★ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Watch your back. Someone you think you can trust may be jealous or after the same position you are. Don’t share your secrets or your plans. Instead, do your best and present yourself professionally. ★★ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): If you procrastinate, you’ll only have yourself to blame. You can expect to face opposition but move swiftly before you lose what’s being made available to you. A short trip will pay off and give you a different outlook. ★★★★★ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Find an inner circle of people in your industry, your history or your favorite pastimes and you can incorporate what you love into what you do for a living. With a unique spin, you can turn your projects into something tangible. ★★★ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Your emotions will get in the way, leading you into dangerous, personal territory that has added responsibilities. Property, investments or buying and selling possessions you no longer use will help you financially. ★★★ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Everything will be dependent on how you conduct yourself regarding a pending financial or legal problem. Make concessions that allow the people you are dealing with to feel you are giving them something in return. A passionate encounter will bring about a worthwhile change. ★★★ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Put your heart and soul into making things better at home. If you take a chance or make a move, you will end up with more cash for the things you enjoy doing. Love is on the rise. ★★★★★ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): There will be plans going on behind your back. Rely on someone you have been there for in the past to weed out information and fill in the blanks. You cannot make a decision that will affect your home, family and your next move without having all the facts. ★★





“I never question my wife’s judgment,” a club player told me. “After all, look who she married. But between you and me, I think she misjudged in this deal.” My friend was East, and his wife led a low heart against South’s 3NT. (North’s double was “negative.”) “I played the ten,” East said, “and South won with the king, led a club to the queen and returned a diamond: three, jack, queen. My wife shifted to a spade, and declarer won, forced out the ace of diamonds and made an overtrick.


“I remarked – innocently, of course – that my wife would beat 3NT if she continued hearts when she took the queen of diamonds. She’d get three hearts and two diamonds. She said she didn’t want to give declarer a second heart trick.” West misjudged. To continue hearts at Trick Four would be wrong if South would then have precisely nine tricks without a diamond trick. It’s far more likely that South will set up the diamonds for nine tricks unless West takes five first.

DAILY QUESTION You hold: S 9 8 7 H A J 9 6 5 D A Q 6 C 8 5. Your partner opens one club, you respond one heart and he bids one spade. The opponents pass. What do you say? ANSWER: At responder’s second turn, he often tries to suggest a contract, bidding the limit of his values. You have the values to invite game, balanced pattern and diamond strength, hence bid 2NT. If one of your spades were the king, you’d jump to 3NT or temporize with a bid of two diamonds. 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.

Cat in Ohio survives 26 days under fire debris

FRANKLIN, Ohio (AP) – A woman’s pet cat has been found alive, buried beneath debris 26 days after an Ohio fire. Sandy LaPierre says she assumed 1-year-old Smoka had died from the Aug. 10 fire in Franklin, about 30 miles north of Cincinnati. The blaze broke out in a

building housing a flower shop and LaPierre’s second-floor apartment. A demolition company moved in to tear down what was left of the building the day after the fire. A crew from Stark Wrecking Co. came back Sept. 4 to clear away the rubble

and found Smoka’s head sticking out from under 16 feet of debris. LaPierre says her female cat lost a lot of weight and has been gobbling down food to make up for it. She says Smoka has some difficulty walking but otherwise seems OK.

CHARLOTTE – The Professional Football Writers of America announced Thursday the creation of the Tom Berry Good Guy Award, which will be presented annually to the member of the Carolina Panthers who is most helpful to the media. The Good Guy Award had been given by the Carolina chapter of

the PFWA in the past, and previous winners include Mike Minter and Brentson Buckner. But the award has been renamed as a tribute to Berry, the long-time columnist for The High Point Enterprise who died Aug. 30 following a brief illness. “The name ‘Tom Berry’ and the phrase ‘good guy’ are synonymous,” said PFWA NFC South

America Stadium press box prior to last Thursday’s preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Berry covered nearly every Panthers home game since the team began play in 1995. The writers who cover the Panthers on a regular basis will vote on the Tom Berry Good Guy Award near the end of the season, and a plaque will be presented to the winner.

chairman Pat Yasinskas of ESPN. com. “Tom was well-liked and wellrespected by all the writers who cover the Panthers and by the players in the locker room and the entire organization. We felt this was a perfect way to carry on his memory.” Officials with the Carolina Panthers held a moment of silence in Berry’s memory in the Bank of

High Point Central’s Al-DaQuan Teasley carries through the Smith line as Xavier Wilson (80), Daniel Boetang (44) and Antwan Nevious (34) try to stop him Thursday night.

Bison roll


HIGH POINT – High Point Central had several excuses for a potential letdown against Smith. The sleepy Thursday night game at Simeon Stadium came on the heels of a successful 2-1 start and happened to fall just eight days before Central and rival T. Wingate Andrews clash. Bison coach Wayne Jones went so far as to dismiss his postgame huddle with the not-so-subtle reminder, “You’ve got school tomorrow.” Amidst the distractions, Central refused to be sidetracked, building a 23-0 halftime lead on the way to a 30-8 win over the Golden Eagles. Junior QB Drew Adams jump-started Central’s offense with two big firstquarter plays. His first throw went for a 28-yard score, and he added an electric 31-yard burst on his first official carry to put the Bison up 14-0. “At times, Drew made some great plays,” Jones said. “He got a little sporadic late in the game, but he made plays for us. He’s a veteran quarterback and he does a great job.” Adams completed 6-of-13 passes for 105 yards, two passing touchdowns and an interception. The latter of two scores through

the air came on a 51-yard strike to William McCauley in the fourth. The veteran leadership was not limited to the offensive side of the ball, as senior Roger Greene led a stingy defense to five turnovers. Greene snatched three interceptions, fellow senior Jimmy Moorman grabbed another and Sean Myers came away with a fumble recovery. The lone touchdown for Smith was scored in the fourth quarter on a kickoff return. “Our defense is playing great,” Jones said. “The guys know how to read plays and they’re just doing a great job.” Yet another big play came on Brian Primus’ sack for a safety in a second quarter that saw Central’s “D” produce nine points – more than the Eagle offense mustered all night. Not to be outdone, Greene returned one of his three picks 65 yards for a touchdown. With the win, Central moves to 3-1 heading into next week’s matchup with the Red Raiders. Smith HP Central

The racing team bearing Richard Petty’s name won’t be back with Dodge next season. In an unexpected move Thursday, RPM and Ford proponent Yates Racing announced they have reached an agreement in principle to merge next season and field four Ford teams under the Richard Petty Motorsports banner. That RPM is leaving Dodge was not a shock because it had been no secret the organization was looking for other options after payments were interrupted this season as a result of Chrysler filing bankruptcy. Speculation centered around a move to Toyota after it was learned that Kasey Kahne made some potential 2010 publicity shots with a Toyota and some of the Petty RPM drivers who began competing for a Toyota team in the Nationwide Series were used in potential 2010 publicity pictures. The deal with Yates is the latest in a series of team moves for Petty that began when Petty Enterprises merged with Boston Ventures in June of 2008. Without sponsorship for this season, Petty folded his team into Gillett-Evernham Motorsports, which was renamed Richard Petty Motorsports. “This is a pretty big deal for us,” Petty said in a statement. “We’re thrilled to partner with Ford. We’ve talked with a lot of folks, but in the end it came down to the success the Gilletts and I think we can achieve with Ford Racing. “Right now this deal is real new. There are lots of details still left to be ironed out so we don’t have a lot of answers for anyone right now. We’ll be working on all that in the coming days, weeks and months, but we do intend to have everything in place before the start of next season.” The move would associate Petty with Ford for the first time since Petty Enterprises fielded that brand in 1969 in an interruption of an association with Chrysler that resumed from 1970 until 1978. Petty’s latest association with Dodges began after the manufacturer returned to the sport in 2001 after a lengthy absence. “I’ve won races with Ford and plan to again,” Petty said. The move also ends speculation that Yates would possibly expand on its own from two to three teams by taking the team that its sister company, Roush-Fenway Racing, must drop at the end of the season to get in compliance with a NASCAR-mandated maximum of four teams. The RPM-Yates merger will result in a net reduction of two teams, one from RPM and one from Yates. Drivers who will be retained are Kasey Kahne, Elliott Sadler and AJ Allmendinger from RPM and Paul Menard from Yates. Kahne has been the only winner for either organization this year. He picked up his second victory Sunday at Atlanta. Left out in the cold will be RPM driver Reed Sorenson and the No. 96 car that Yates fielded for Hall of Fame Racing and driver Bobby Labonte.

s we enter the heart of September, high school football rivalries fall into shape. Tonight’s prep schedule features an epic city rivalry with Southwest Guilford vs. T.W. Andrews at Simeon Stadium. And it’ll be the battle of the Bulldogs when Albemarle and Thomasville clash at Cushwa Stadium. Next week’s docket includes the granddaddy of all city showdowns as Central and Andrews collide at Simeon Stadium. The Red


Los Angeles Angels outfielder Torii Hunter is the winner of the Branch Rickey Award in recognition of his work with kids in the community. The award was created by the Rotary Club of Denver in 1991.

Petty partners with Ford next season | 888-3519


Raiders carry a 24-15 edge in the series. And Sept. 25 provides several big battles. East Davidson plays host to Ledford in a county showdown that comes a bit earlier this year as the teams are no longer conference rivals. Trinity goes to Southern Guilford in a renewal of a game that pits neighbors against neighbors. And Thomasville travels to Asheboro for a game that old-timers recall ranked among

the state’s biggest showdowns from the ‘40s into the ‘80s. In fact, the Blue Comets and Bulldogs met every season from 1943-84. So get set for several great Friday nights of pigskin rivalries to whet your appetite for October’s annual flurry of great conference clashes.

College football teams tackle the swine flu


Wake Forest players, including Chris DeGeare (70) and Dominique Midgett (52), salute Demon Deacon fans after defeating Vanderbilt 31-17 in Nashville, Tenn., in this Nov. 24, 2007, file photo. DeGeare and his teammates look to stop Stanford on Saturday in Winston-Salem.

High Point’s DeGeare hopes to spark Wake A

s an offensive tackle standing 6-foot-4 and weighing more than 300 pounds, Chris DeGeare loves that Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe tries to rely on a power running game. “They want to establish a run,” DeGeare said. “They want to set a tone. I don’t mind it because the way I like to get loose is start off the game by running the ball, get your pads knocked around a little bit and see what the competition is like.” The High Point resident really loves it when he gets the opportunity to knock people out of the way trying to open holes on straight-ahead, smashmouth type plays. “You can just fire off and hit people,” DeGeare said. “You don’t have to have great technique. You can just fire out and hit somebody in the mouth. I definitely like that style.” It’s not exactly the style that DeGeare desired to play as a youth. “I wanted to play a skill position,” DeGeare said. “I had good hands. I wanted to be a tight end.” Because he was bigger than most everyone else, he was put on the line in the seventh grade at Griffin Middle School. “I continued to grow,” DeGeare said. “I had to stick my hand in the dirt and play the line. I think it was in seventh grade that they put me at center. I was big, so I played a little bit of everything on the line and some defense as well.” He got down and dirty on the line for the first two years of his high school career at T. Wingate Andrews, then finished out at Glenn after his family moved to the Kernersville area “because my mom found a bigger house that she liked.” They returned to High Point two years ago – to a house near the elementary school he attended on Johnson Street – but DeGeare said he doesn’t know the reason other than to be closer to things in the city. Now, he’s finally reached his senior season at Wake after redshirting in 2008. He played as a true freshman on the 2006 team that won the school’s second ACC championship ever and went to the Orange Bowl. He’s proud that he’s been at Wake when the Demon Deacons went to bowl games for three straight seasons for the first time in the school’s history. As a freshman, he helped the Deacons rush for a conference best 197 yards per game. He’s started 24 of the

38 games in his career. He says that the biggest lesson he’s learned during his college career is “to never give up. We were down 24-3 to Maryland and came back to win (31-24). We almost did it again last Saturday.” But, not quite. The Deacons couldn’t overcome a 24-7 deficit and endured a disappointing 24-21 season-opening loss

to Baylor. “We weren’t where we needed to be mentally,” DeGeare said. “From a physical standpoint, I believe we played pretty good. ... We gave a great effort. We just didn’t play very smart.” Some of the mistakes led to breakdowns in pass protection that allowed Baylor to sack Wake quarterback Riley Skinner three times and flush him out of the pocket on other occasions. The mistakes also contributed to Wake gaining just 269 yards, including 126 on the ground. DeGeare placed the blame of the offensive shortcomings on the team as a whole and not just the line. “We did make strides during the game,” DeGeare said of the line. “But, we didn’t come out playing soft. We did come out and play physical football, and that’s what you want to do on the offensive line. We didn’t go three-andout on our first series. We put together a drive. So I don’t think there was a lack of enthusiasm. “The key emphasis is to learn from the mistakes. We’ve got to get better. We can’t stay stagnant.” With hopes of an undefeated season gone, DeGeare would now like to cap his career with another victory in the ACC Championship game and another trip to the Orange Bowl. The real quest for that prize begins on Sept. 26 at Boston College. In the meantime, he hopes the mistakes are corrected in time to prevent more disappointment against Stanford this Saturday and next week against Elon. “We want to come rolling this week,” DeGeare said. “Starting out 0-2 is not what you think of when you are out there in the summer heat going through two practices each day. | 888-3519

Jazz greats set for Hall celebration

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) – Jerry Sloan needed a little coaxing from his children before acknowledging he may be Hall of Fame material. Sloan has the fourth-most coaching wins in NBA history and is reluctant to take credit for any of them. He will push modesty aside today and acknowledge – or at least sit quietly as others say it – that he’s been one of the best coaches in the game for a very long time. Sloan will be enshrined along with one of the players who got him there, former Jazz point guard John Stockton. Entering his 22nd season coaching the Jazz, Sloan likes to say his 1,137 victories – including 1,043 with Utah – are as

much a product of longevity and having good players as anything he’s done as a coach. Two of his players will always stand out: Stockton, the NBA’s all-time leader in steals and assists, and Karl Malone, who scored the second-most points in NBA history. Sloan coached the prolific pair for 15 seasons, which included two trips to the NBA finals in 1997 and 1998. Sloan and Stockton will be inducted along with Michael Jordan, whose Chicago Bulls beat the Jazz both times they reached the finals. Other inductees include David Robinson and Rutgers women’s coach C. Vivian Stringer.

NEW YORK (AP) – Helmets and shoulder pads – and hand sanitizer. College football players are protecting themselves from more than bruising hits and tackles this season. Swine flu can flatten them, too. With outbreaks reported at the universities of Mississippi and Wisconsin, players are under orders to wash their hands and cover their mouths when they cough or sneeze, lest their teams join those who have been hit hard by the bug. “After the first couple of cases, when people got sick on campus, me and my roommates, we went and got a big bottle of disinfectant,” said Ole Miss running back Brandon Bolden, who lives with two teammates. “And as soon as we walk into our house, we have hand sanitizer.” Coaches are fretting the possibility of having to play games short-handed. “It scares us to death,” Texas coach Mack Brown said. Swine flu hasn’t been a problem for the Longhorns so far, but the list

of teams affected has been growing steadily. At Duke, one player had a confirmed case of swine flu in early August, about a month before the season started last weekend. School officials said two or three dozen players experienced flu symptoms and it took about 10 days to get healthy. Tulane, in New Orleans, cleared 27 players with mostly mild symptoms to return to practice about a week before the Green Wave opened their season with a loss to Tulsa. Washington State had 16 players get sick before its home opener Saturday – a loss to Stanford – amid a larger flu outbreak at the school. The university placed hand sanitizers at concession stands for the game, which drew just 22,386 fans – about 5,500 fewer than last year’s opener. Mississippi and Wisconsin have been dealing with seriously depleted rosters at practice this week as player after player has come down with the fever, coughing, body aches and sore throats that are symptoms of the H1N1 virus.

Chiefs still not sure if Cassel will play KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel acts like he’s ready to play. He hasn’t missed a practice this week. He knows the game plan. He’s said the right things, that he feels good enough to go. Now, it’s up to the coaches. “As long as I’m able to walk and get out there, I will be ready to go,” Cassel said Thursday. “It’s up to them to pull me back.” So does that mean Cassel will play Sunday against Baltimore? Too early to tell. Cassel sprained his left knee in Kansas City’s third preseason game

Aug. 29. He returned to practice Monday and was on the field the past two days. Though he’s getting better every day, Cassel’s been limited in what drills he can participate in, leaving the coaches with a hazy plan against the Ravens and their rugged defense. Cassel talks like he’ll be able to play, given the chance. He’s been wearing a brace since returning to practice and has gradually become involved in more drills. He’s also eager to show everyone what he can do after signing a six-year, $63 million contract in the offseason.

NFL offers delayed broadcasts of blacked-out league games NEW YORK (AP) – NFL fans whose local teams’ games are blacked out will be able to watch replays online for free – though not until after midnight. The recession has left several teams in danger of having games blacked out this season, including the Cincinnati Bengals and Arizona Cardinals this week. The league announced Thursday that home fans will be able to view the delayed broadcasts on for 72 hours, except during “Monday Night Football.” A game is not aired in the home market if it does not sell out 72 hours in advance. “We understand that the economy is limiting some families and corporations from buying as many game tickets as they had previously,” commis-

sioner Roger Goodell said in a release. The Bengals and Cardinals each received 24-hour extensions Thursday as the teams tried to sell out their openers and avoid blackouts. Cincinnati plays the Denver Broncos and Arizona faces the San Francisco 49ers. The defending NFC champion Cardinals said they had about 1,700 tickets remaining. They have sold out all 34 games played at University of Phoenix Stadium, which opened in 2006. But last January the team needed two extensions from the league to sell out its first home playoff game in Arizona. The Bengals are coming off a 4-11-1 season that left many fans disgruntled about the direction of the franchise, which has one winning season in the last 18 years.

Lions’ Smith ‘starving’ to win after 0-16 season ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) – The Detroit Lions finally have a chance to silence some talk about the NFL’s first 0-16 season. They know there’s only one way to do it. Win. “Until we do that, people are going to linger on

0-16,” linebacker Ernie Sims said Thursday. How hungry is running back Kevin Smith to experience a victory after the rookie was part of a winless season. “Starving,” Smith said. Detroit’s 258-day wait for a shot at a victory,

since sealing their spot in league infamy, ends Sunday at New Orleans. “You want to do what you didn’t do last year, and get a lot of wins,” Smith said. “I’ve been looking forward to this since walking off the field at Green Bay.”

Cowboys eager to snap skid vs. Raiders SOUTHWEST GUILFORD AT T.W. ANDREWS


Records: Southwest 3-0; Andrews 1-2 Last year: Andrews 20-13 Last week: Southwest beat Ledford 2813; Andrews topped Grimsley 14-6 Next week: Southwest is idle; Andrews plays host to High Point Central This week: What is it about the year 1997 for these Cowboys? Already trumpeted so far this season as the last time a Southwest squad started 3-0, it also happens to be the last time Southwest earned a win against the Red Raiders. That 30-15 decision was part of a four-game winning streak to open the year. Eleven straight losses against Andrews have ensued. For as good as Andrews has been over the years and as much as Southwest has struggled, the games in this series have been remarkably close for the most part. The Raiders posted four shutouts in a fiveyear span from 1999-2003, but the recent contests have been thrillers: seven points last year, 19-14 on the stunning Jordan Reid heave to Tony Washington on the final play of the game two years ago, 2014 in 2006, 24-22 in 2005 on a stopped two-point conversion in the closing moments... “I was at High Point Central for four years and was part of that rivalry (with Andrews),” Southwest coach Scott Schwarzer said. “It’s not as big as with those two, but it is a big rivalry. Our kids play at a high level when they play Andrews.” So far this season, the Cowboys have played at a pretty high level against everybody. “I don’t think we’re done yet,” Schwarzer added. “The last three weeks have been a great experience for our kids and something we want to keep going.”

and players landing jobs at the school. What about new Surry coach Monty Southern? Mebane taught Southern, went to the same church as Southern’s family – and Southern and his girlfriend used to babysit the Mebanes’ oldest daughters, who are now 23 and 21. “It’ll be Trinity playing Trinity this week,” Mebane said of the similarities. “They run the exact same offense and the exact same defense we do.” Trinity saw fumbles in the end zone last week get in the way of an offense that had been playing well in a 2-0 start. West won in overtime when Trinity went for a two-point conversion – earlier troubles in the kicking game, plus a penalty on West that moved the ball closer to the end zone made the choice an easy one – and failed. Expect the Bulldogs to get back on track against a Northwest Conference squad that has allowed 122 points in three games this fall.

The week before Providence Grove beat up on East, for instance, it was handing Wheatmore a 490 defeat. The Eagles generally compete with South Davidson, Chatham Central and North Moore for “not in the basement” honors in the Yadkin Valley 1A, and this year’s win came against the Central Academy of Tech and Arts. A week later, East tied Union Academy 23-all. Records: Trinity 2-1; Surry 0-3 Look for some success – at the very least Last year: Did not play – for the hungry Warriors in this one.

Walker Cup captain in limelight

PHILADELPHIA (AP) – Ben Hogan and Bobby Jones left their mark at Merion Golf Club’s East Course. Now, a member of the venerable club will try to add to its legacy. George “Buddy” Marucci Jr. will lead the twotime defending champion U.S. team against Great Britain and Ireland in the 42nd Walker Cup in suburban Philadelphia. Marucci also was in charge of the U.S. in 2007, when the Americans got a dramatic 121⁄2-111⁄2 victory at Royal County Down in Northern Ireland in the amateur equivalent of the Ryder Cup. The U.S. ended a streak of three straight losses in 2005. The weekend competition consists of four alternate-shot and eight singles matches on Saturday, then four alternate-shot and 10 singles matches Sunday. The U.S. team, which includes High Point’s Drew Weaver, should benefit from their captain’s intimate knowledge of the slick greens and rolling fairways of the storied layout, which is hosting its 18th USGA event. Marucci grew up in a house just off the eighth green of Merion East, where Jones completed the Grand Slam in 1930 and Hogan claimed the U.S. Open in 1950. “Merion is very important to me,” Marucci said. “Certainly winning at Merion would be special.” Marucci said he is more excited than nervous

And a 1-3 start? Unheard of since 1993, when opening losses to Reidsville, DeMatha and Southwest Guilford were followed by a win against Southern Alamance – the Bulldogs still finished 8-6 that year. It’s too early for Thomasville fans to start worrying. Allen Brown built a brutal schedule, and his team hasn’t played a perfect game yet to beat the likes of Mount Airy or Brown. But losing to a longtime bitter rival tonight will be harder to take, even if a conference championship no longer is on the line with Albemarle back in the Yadkin Valley 1A and Thomasville residing in the Central Carolina 2A.

Next week: South is idle; Bishop welcomes South Stokes This week: Another team with scheduling woes is Bishop, which had to fill in gaps on the calendar with Highland Tech and Union Academy. If those 41-0 romps didn’t tell the Villains much, their next two games against South and South Stokes may not help either except in the stats department. Still, early wins can help build confidence for young teams, and Bishop certainly qualifies in that department. South, meanwhile, is looking to get back on track after thrashing Wheatmore on opening night.

Snubbed Sabbatini stars in Chicago


Buddy Marucci watches his drive on the first hole during the opening round of the 2006 U.S. Senior Open Championship. This weekend, Marucci leads the U.S. team in defense of its Walker Cup title. to have the event at his home club. And, there’s an excitement in the air at Merion, as the event is considered a trial run for when the club hosts the U.S. Open in 2013. Marucci, once best known as the 43-year-old opponent who lost to Tiger Woods on the last hole of the 36-hole final of the 1995 U.S. Amateur, is a lifelong amateur who has found success late in his career. Marucci’s interest in

competitive golf began innocently enough. The 8year-old sneaked onto the East Course in 1960 and watched Jack Nicklaus and a team of Americans win the Eisenhower Cup in the World Amateur Team Championship. “I think that is the first time I realized that something like that existed,” Marucci said. “I can’t tell you that I understood what was going on, but I kind of liked it.”

New Device Alleviates 83% of all Back Pain Back pain now the number one cause of missed work

CHARLOTTE, NC- Medicare is working with local medical supply companies to offer breakthrough new remedy for persons with chronic back pain. If Medicare is your primary insurance you may already qualify for this new home treatment that could eliminate the need for surgery. Medicaid and

many private insurance carriers also cover the cost. “This non surgical home procedure only takes minutes to apply, and treats even the most severe types of pain often alleviating years of suffering” says Chad McCain of TTI. Call the national hotline to be qualified. 1-800-526-8926.

LEMONT, Ill. (AP) – Two days after his Presidents Cup snub, Rory Sabbatini made captain Greg Norman’s decision to leave him off the International team look even more peculiar. Sabbatini ran off seven birdies on renovated Cog Hill for a 5-under 66 on Thursday, giving him a share of the lead with Steve Marino at the BMW International and hopes of making it to the FedEx Cup finale. They had a one-shot lead over Bo Van Pelt and Marc Leishman, who only qualified for the third playoff event by making an eagle on his final hole Monday at the TPC Boston. Tiger Woods, a four-time winner at Cog Hill, was among those at 68. Sabbatini won the Byron Nelson Championship in May and appeared to be in good shape to make the Presidents Cup team until Y.E. Yang stunned the golf world with his comeback win over

Woods at the PGA Championship to bump Sabbatini out of the top 10. Norman then used his two captain’s picks on 17-year-old Ryo Ishikawa of Japan and Adam Scott, who is in the worst slump of his career and has fallen out of the top 50 in the world ranking. Right after his low round, Sabbatini took the high road. “If I’d been playing well over the past couple weeks and didn’t get picked, I might have something to complain about,” said Sabbatini, who has missed four cuts in his last eight starts and has not finished in the top 30 since winning in Dallas. “But you know what? The situation is such ... I’m here this week. I’m going to focus on this.” The spunky South African was hardly disappointed by anything at Cog Hill, the public course in the Chicago suburbs that received a facelift from Rees Jones.

Del Potro reaches semifinals

NEW YORK (AP) – The swirling winds in Arthur Ashe Stadium caused as much trouble for Juan Martin del Potro as his opponent, Marin Cilic. Del Potro overcame them both Thursday and moved into his second Grand Slam semifinal. The sixth-seeded Argentine overcame a sluggish first set and figured out the blustery wind inside the cavernous stadium to defeat No. 16 Marin Cilic, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-1 in the U.S. Open quarterfinals. “I cannot start the match like today,” Del Potro said. “I was thinking about other things, and the weather was bad. But it was bad for both players. I just need to be in focus in the beginning of the match until the last point and play my game.” Later, the wind turned into rain and delayed No. 3 Rafael Nadal’s match against No. 11 Fernando Gonzalez, with Nadal leading 7-6 (4), 2-2. Maybe a welcome break for Nadal, who needed a medical timeout in the first set to have work done on his stomach – an injury that’s been bothering him throughout the tournament. After a delay of about 1 hour, 15 minutes, the match resumed. The winner will play del Potro, who was having a rough time handling Cilic’s serve in the first set, and was down a break early in the second. That’s when he figured things out and rolled off 17 of the last 20 games. “He was not missing,” Cilic said. Del Potro is in his second major semifinal, adding this to his trip at the French Open earlier this year, where he blew a lead and lost in five sets to Roger Federer. In earlier action on the main court, Venus and Serena Williams advanced to their 10th Grand Slam final with a 7-6 (4), 3-6, 6-2 victory over Russia’s Alisa Kleybanova and Ekaterina Makarova.

Gift certificate co. faces claims

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — More than 1,000 claims seeking about $2.3 million have been filed against an Ohio gift certificate company that filed for bankruptcy in April. A court-appointed trustee says 1,167 claims were filed as of Sept. 4 against Daytonbased CertifiChecks Inc. About $279,000 is currently available to pay claims and administrative costs. Tuesday was the deadline for seeking compensation from the company. It closed Feb. 26.

New data instill hope WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. trade deficit in July hit the highest level in six months as a record rise in imports outpaced a third straight increase in foreign demand for American products, according to government data released Thursday. Both gains provided more evidence that the worst recession since the 1930s was losing its grip on the global economy. A rebound in the American labor market has yet to take hold, but first-time

claims for jobless benefits did fall more than expected last week. Companies are laying off fewer workers as the U.S. economy shows consistent signs that the recession is over. The Federal Reserve said Wednesday that 11 of its 12 regional banks reported the economy is stabilizing, an improvement from previous reports. The Commerce Department said Thursday that the trade deficit rose 16.3 percent to $32 billion in July, much larger than

the $27.4 billion imbalance that economists had expected. It was the largest imbalance since January and the percentage increase was the biggest in more than a decade. Imports rose 4.7 percent to a total of $159.6 billion, the largest monthly advance on records that date to 1992 and the second consecutive gain after 10 straight declines. The rebound reflected a 21.5 percent spike in imports of autos and auto parts, partly due to increased

production at U.S. auto plants owned by General Motors and Chrysler that had been slowed when the companies were struggling to emerge from bankruptcy protection. Exports edged up 2.2 percent to $127.6 billion. It marked the third straight monthly increase, but left exports well below their record level of $164.4 billion set in July 2008. The export gains reflected big increases in shipments of civilian aircraft, computers, industrial

Frontier bankruptcy plan wins approval

DENVER (AP) — A bankruptcy judge has confirmed the plan of reorganization for Frontier Airlines, moving the Denver-based carrier a step closer to emerging from Chapter 11 protection. Frontier says it resolved the few objections to its reorganization plan before winning approval from the judge in New York on Thursday. The plan calls for Frontier to emerge from bankruptcy as a unit of regional jet operator Republic Airways Holdings Inc. around Oct. 1.

Oil gains after decline in supply

NEW YORK (AP) — Oil prices clung to small gains Thursday after a report showed that U.S. crude inventories decreased more than expected last week. Oil also got support from a weaker U.S. dollar, OPEC’s decision to maintain production levels and a new report that says the slump in global oil demand will not be as bad as initially feared. Benchmark crude for October delivery rose 5 cents to $71.36 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

Monsanto plans deeper cuts

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Monsanto Co., the world’s biggest seed maker, said Thursday it plans to make deeper work force cuts than previously announced, saying it will reduce its staff by about 8 percent to cut costs. The St. Louis-based company also said its 2009 earnings would come in at the low end of its previous forecast due in part to weaker-than-expected results from Roundup and other herbicides.


machinery and medical equipment. American companies have been hampered by a drop in demand at home and in major export markets as the recession that began in the U.S. spread worldwide. However, economists are hoping that a rebound in global economies as well as further weakening in the value of the dollar will help boost exports in coming months. A weaker dollar makes U.S. products less expensive in overseas markets.


An old Opel car from 1933 is seen in the Opel headquarters in Ruesselsheim, central Germany, Thursday.

Magna, Sberbank to acquire Opel BERLIN (AP) — General Motors Co. said Thursday that Canada’s Magna International Inc. and Russian lender Sberbank would take a majority stake in GM’s European subsidiary Adam Opel GmbH, leaving the U.S. automaker with a minority stake that will enable it to continue developing vehicles with Opel. Key issues — including agreement from labor unions to cost reductions and a financing package from the German government — re-

main to be finalized, GM said. The deal was cheered by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who saw it as a jobs saver ahead of Sept. 27 national elections. Magna agreed to keep Opel’s four German plants open. John Smith, GM’s chief negotiator, said he anticipates the deal closing “should take place in November or December.” He said cuts in production and jobs were possible, noting that Magna’s proposal contemplated a winding down of the facil-

ity in Antwerp, Belgium, and shifting some of the production at the Zaragosa, Spain plant to Eisenach in Germany. “At the moment, I think its fair to say that in some way shape or form all four German facilities carry on,” he said, referring to plants in Ruesselsheim, Eisenbach, Bochum and Kaiserslautern. Asked about the plant in Antwerp, which which makes Astras and employs 2,000 workers, Smith said that the entire European automobile industry was

oversaturated with capacity. “That applies in one way or another to all manufacturers,” he said. “In all plans, Antwerp is the plant that is idle.” Klaus Franz, the chairman of the European Employee Forum of General Motors said GM’s decision was embraced by workers. “I am aware that it was a tough decision to be taken by the GM board of directors, but I am glad that the time of uncertainty for the future of the Opel and Vauxhall brands and company is over.”

P&G sees sales rise again CINCINNATI (AP) — The Procter & Gamble Co., maker of Tide laundry detergent and Gillette shavers, expects sales to begin rebounding this fall as it cuts prices and adds new versions of its consumer products that emphasize value. P&G shares jumped $2.21, or 4.1 percent, to $55.97 Thursday morning.

Company officials told investors they expect the sale of P&G’s prescription drug businesses to increase earnings by 32-34 cents a share this fiscal year. They also said they project organic sales growth of 1 to 4 percent for the October-December quarter. Organic sales — or sales not related to acquisitions — have fallen the past two

quarters, and P&G says it expects them to be flat or drop as much as 3 percent in the current quarter. The Cincinnati-based company, considered a household spending bellwether, has been hurt in the recession as households have cut spending and turned to store-brand and other cheaper products.

Company leaders say they are cutting prices across about 10 percent of their broad global portfolio and stepping up “value” pitches to consumers. P&G officials say they are cutting prices on Cheer brand laundry detergent; they have said they are also testing a low-cost “basic” version of their top-selling Tide.

Over the past three years an average of 1.5 million North Carolinians were without health insurance, or nearly 17 percent.

community data Thursday that contains information about health coverage across the United States. The census data show that over the past three years an average of 1.5 million North Carolinians were without health insurance, or nearly 17 percent. That was worse than the national average of 15.5 percent of the population lacking coverage. Texas led the country with about a quarter of its residents uninsured. A state health research agency reported in March that recession-fueled layoffs gave North Carolina the country’s highest growth rate of people without health insurance.

NEW YORK (AP) – Investors poured money into stocks for a fifth day after a drop in weekly unemployment claims and a spike in oil raised hopes for the economy. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 80 points Thursday to its highest close since November. The index is up 347 points in five days, its longest winning streak since last fall. The gains have come even as analysts say the market is overdue for a retreat. The advance followed the Labor Department’s report that jobless claims fell more than expected to 550,000 last week. A jump in oil lifted energy companies and an upbeat forecast from consumer products maker Procter & Gamble Co. added to enthusiasm about an economic recovery. Momentum grew in midafternoon as Trea-

sury Secretary Timothy Geithner told a Congressional panel that confidence and stability were returning to the economy after the panic that began a year ago. Some pieces of bad news held back certain shares but didn’t get in the way of a broad market advance. Agricultural company Monsanto Co. warned that its 2009 earnings would come in at the low end of its forecast and said it would cut more jobs than previously announced. The Dow rose 80.26, or 0.8 percent, to 9,627.48 to its highest close since Nov. 3, when it ended at 9,319.83. The broader S&P 500 index rose 10.77, or 1 percent, to 1,044.14. The index hasn’t risen five straight days since a streak that ended Nov. 28. The Nasdaq composite index rose 23.63, or 1.2 percent, to 2,084.02.

During that time span, the SEC received six “substantive complaints that raised significant red flags” regarding Madoff’s operations, according to Kotz’s report. But “a thorough and competent investigation or examination was never performed.” The report cited no evidence of improper ties between agency officials and Madoff, nor of senior SEC officials trying to influence the agency’s probes of Madoff, who was a prominent Wall Street figure. But it does paint a grim picture of an agency hobbled by incompetence. Its failure to pursue the most obvious leads, disputes among inspection staffers and lack of communication among SEC offices cleared

the way for Madoff to continue for 16 years what could be the biggest Ponzi scheme in U.S. history. Providing further embarrassment for the SEC, Massachusetts Secretary of State William Galvin on Wednesday released a transcript of a 2005 telephone call during which Madoff coached a potential witness about fooling federal regulators, saying “you don’t have to be too brilliant” to get away with it. Galvin’s office reached an $8 million settlement this week with New York-based Fairfield Greenwich Advisors, a Madoff feeder fund, to fully refund state investors burned by Madoff. According to the transcript, Madoff dismissed

an SEC investigation as a “fishing expedition” and highlighted how investigators develop cozy relationships with firms they are supposed to regulate. “The guys ... ask a zillion different questions and we look at them sometimes and we laugh, and we say are you guys writing a book?” Madoff said. “These guys they work for five years at the commission then they become a compliance manager at a hedge fund now.” Madoff, who pleaded guilty in March, is serving a 150-year sentence in federal prison in North Carolina for a pyramid scheme that destroyed thousands of people’s life savings, wrecked charities and gave the financial system another big jolt.

Congress probes SEC’s Madoff failure

WASHINGTON (AP) – Congress is reopening its inquiry into the Securities and Exchange Commission’s failure to detect the multibillion-dollar fraud conducted for more than a decade by Bernard Madoff, this time seeking answers from the agency watchdog and potential lessons for lawmakers in crafting new financial rules. The Senate Banking Committee is scheduled to hear testimony Thursday from David Kotz, the SEC inspector general, who revealed in a detailed report last week how the agency bungled five investigations of Madoff’s business between June 1992 and last December, when the disgraced financier confessed.

Money market program to end WASHINGTON (AP) – The Obama administration said Thursday that a program used to guarantee as much as $3 trillion in money market mutual fund assets will end on schedule next week. The program, which will be closed down on Sept. 18, had no direct cost to taxpayers and earned more than $1 billion in fees paid by the mutual fund industry, according to the Treasury Department. It was established at the height of the financial crisis last fall after a large money market fund “broke the buck” — meaning the value of its underlying assets fell below $1 for each investor dollar put in. Investors were exposed to losses after the Primary Reserve Fund conceded that $785 million it had invested in the debt of Lehman

Brothers became worthless after the investment bank’s bankruptcy in September 2008. The funds are a mainstay of financial management for U.S. families and companies because they’re viewed as safe and easily accessible investments that offer returns exceeding those of conventional savings accounts. They generally invest in the safest types of debt such as Treasury bonds. The collapse of the fund run by New Yorkbased Reserve Management Co. last fall was only the second such instance in the nearly four decades that moneymarket funds have been available. The “breaking of the buck” by the Primary Fund – the first U.S. money fund, established in 1970 – stoked fears over the safety of the trillions held in the money funds.

Hurricane Fred weakens in Atlantic MIAMI (AP) – Hurricane Fred has weakened to a Category 1 storm far off in the Atlantic, while Hurricane Linda continues its trek far out in the Pacific. The National Hurricane Center says Fred weakened to a Category 1 storm on Thursday, with maximum sustained winds near 90 mph (150 kph). It was expected to diminish to a tropical storm by Saturday. Fred is centered about 740 miles west of the Cape Verde Islands and slowing down as it drifted north at 5 mph. Meanwhile in the Pacific, Hurricane Linda’s maximum sustained winds are near 75 mph and forecasters expect it to weaken over the next day or two.
