Underreported sewage


EPA: Thomasville didn’t reveal full extent of wastewater spill BY DARRICK IGNASIAK ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

THOMASVILLE – Miscommunication caused Thomasville officials to underreport a wastewater spill that allowed 15.93 million gallons of raw sewage enter into Hamby Creek in July and August, city officials said Monday. According to City Manager Kelly Craver, the federal Environmental Protection Agency made Thomasville employees recalculate an amount of 385,000 gallons of raw sewage that initially was reported by the city Aug. 4 to the N.C. Division of Water Quality. The untreated wastewater spill,

which began July 13 and ended Aug. 4, came from the North Hamby Creek Outfall Line near Baptist Children’s Home Road, and sewage spilled into the North Hamby Creek in the Yadkin/Pee Dee River Basin. Craver said the wastewater spill happened as a result of a manhole that collapsed, possibly during or after a rain storm on July 13. The city manager said he knew of no environmental impacts that could be attributed to Thomasville’s wastewater spill. Yadkin Riverkeeper Dean Naujoks said EPA officials conducted

HIGH POINT – Major furniture events in High Point and Las Vegas overlapped for the first time when the sun rose on Monday morning as Pre-market and the Las Vegas Furniture Market opened. Pre-market, an invitation-only event for buyers and manufacturers, began slowly, but an expanded list of secured retailers may have given the event an extra boost as the day wore on, according to some exhibitors. “So far, so good,” said Page Wilson, president of Pulaski. “We were reasonably busy (Monday) morning, and we had some appointments on Sunday (with retailers).” More retailers than ever before were secured for the event, according to figures released by the High Point Market Authority. This gives exhibitors more opportunities to display new products and gain commitments from buyers before the High Point Market opens next month, said Kevin O’Connor, chairman of the board for the authority and president of Samson Marketing. “My guess is we’ll have close to 100 retailers that come through,” he said about the event which ends today. Mike France, vice president of sales for Progressive Furniture, said he had seen twice as many customers before lunch on Monday than he saw during an entire day at the spring Pre-market. “You don’t write any business here, but we’re hoping for commitments from people we’re expecting to see,” he said. “It’s always worthwhile to be open at Pre-Market. We’re open at the Las Vegas Furniture Market, too.” France and several exhibitors said they were participating in both events, but the scheduling conflict made it difficult. “The Las Vegas Market is important for us, but the High Point Market is important for us as well,” France said. “It’s kind of unusual with Pre-market and the Las Vegas Market going head to head.” O’Connor said he didn’t want people to think of it as a “High Point versus Las Vegas” scenario. “The competition in Las Vegas has made us stronger,” he said. “It’s made manufacturers work harder to get their customers here.” | 888-3617

Students, teachers enjoy smooth first day


RANDOLPH COUNTY – Teachers had four full days last week to get classrooms ready for classes at the new Wheatmore High School, and those efforts made for a smooth first day Monday. “It has gone wonderful,” Courtney Page, a foods teacher, said of the first day. “It’s very

Freshman Jessi Burton was one of the first to show up Monday at Wheatmore High School. She arrived around 7 a.m. even though students could not enter the building before 7:50 a.m. and Randolph County Schools used Thursday and Friday as teacher workdays to get the new school prepared for teachers and students. “It took a total team effort,” Wheatmore High Principal Daryl Barnes said. “I’m very proud to see how everybody pitched into make this happen.” A pep rally was held Monday morning to celebrate the first day inside the new school.

Making the choice Exhibitors explain their decision to show in High Point, Las Vegas BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – It wasn’t easy for Progressive Furniture to participate in both Pre-market and the Las Vegas Furniture Market. Mike France, vice president of sales for the company, had been traveling to other furniture events in the South before he returned to his High Point home Sunday night so that he could open the Progressive Furniture showroom on Monday morning. Meanwhile, other members of the Progressive sales team headed to Las Vegas. “This company does well in Las Vegas, but it’s unfortunate that Vegas chose to schedule on top of High Point this year,” France

said. “Now, dealers are having to make choices about where they go.” France joins a group of exhibitors who see advantages to participating in both Pre-market and the Las Vegas Furniture Market, but they had to take extra measures to set up for the events that take place simultaneously this year, with Pre-market scheduled for Sept. 14-15 and the Las Vegas Furniture Market scheduled for Sept. 14-17. Kevin O’Connor, chairman of the board for the High Point Market Authority and president of Samson Marketing, said there were differences between the two markets that attract certain exhibitors. “Las Vegas is not for everybody,

and High Point is not for everybody,” O’Connor said. “Las Vegas makes sense for West Coast retailers who no longer have to come to the East Coast for a market. But High Point has the majority of major manufacturers.” Other exhibitors, such as U.S. Furniture Industries on Main Street, chose only to participate in Pre-market this year because of that reason. “Due to the lack of top 100 manufacturers attending Vegas, we made the decision to exit that market and have opted to focus our efforts in High Point,” said Derek Lin, manager of the company. “Our focus is to grow our business here on the East Coast.” | 888-3617



EPA probe cites miscommunication FROM PAGE 1

their investigation based on a report he received on Aug. 28. Naujoks said he received a tip from an employee at the Thomasville Wastewater Treatment Plant who claimed plant officials intentionally underreported the spill totals to the media. “I don’t believe we had anybody on staff who intentionally underreported this,” Craver said. “I can’t speak to why someone made that call. That was somebody’s personal decision, but I hate they didn’t tell me. We would

have fixed it as soon as we would have known about it.” The EPA investigation concluded the spill was underreported because of “miscommunication,” according to Morgan Huffman, the city’s public services director. The EPA also told Thomasville officials that there was no “criminal intent” by city employees, Huffman said. Kevin LaPointe, a special agent with the EPA’s Criminal Investigation Division, could not be reached

for comment Monday. Naujoks, who started his own investigation Friday, said the Thomasville wastewater treatment spill is the largest that he has heard of in more than a decade. From his investigation, Naujoks said plant operator logs from July 16 to July 25 indicate flow coming into the plant had dropped from an average of 2 million gallons a day to 1.2 million gallons a day. “Someone is lying about what took place out here because it is clear

LAS VEGAS – As the semiannual World Market Center in Las Vegas opened on Monday, considerable home furnishings industry interest clearly was focused on several major factors affecting not just the Las Vegas event but the industry as a whole. Since the home furnishings industry has been in the doldrums for a decade, only to be exacerbated by the continuing recession, it remains to be seen how today’s economic uncertainties will determine attendance figures and buying patterns. Also uncertain is the effect of opening on Monday in September for four days, instead of the previous five-day schedule in July with no weekend dates. As the three-building WMC opened Monday, many crossover buyers already were in Las Vegas attending the seventh annual ABC Kids show at the nearby Las Vegas Convention Center. The show featured hundreds of baby furniture items, nursery lighting, rugs and accessories exhibitors among the more than 1,000 booths. While WMC fall market officially opened Monday, a number of permanent exhibitors, including the Design Center sections in all three buildings, were opened on Sunday. Surveying exhibitors and buyers in the three buildings Monday, it was obvious everyone who did make it to Las Vegas came to do business, not to enjoy the “delights” of the city. And the level of business most sought depended on the not-unexpected factors of value for the price in an effort to reach

from the plant’s own data people knew this spill was happening,” he said. “A 15 million gallon sewage spill, larger than the Exxon Valdez oil spill, does not go undetected for 20 days straight without knowing it is happening.” The city initially was fined $1,616 in August for reporting the spill of 385,000 gallons. Huffman said he wouldn’t be surprised if there was a modification of the initial fine.

A story that ran in the Sept. 12 edition of the High Point Enterprise incorrectly listed one of the options presented by Randolph County Schools officials to redistrict the area’s middle schools and/or elementary schools. The proposal to convert Archdale Elementary into a sixth-grade school would allow Archdale Trinity Middle School to be a sixth-through-eighth-grade school that fed to the new Wheatmore High School. The story incorrectly listed Braxton Craven as the sixth-through-eighthgrade school that would feed to Wheatmore.

WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) – A hospital in northwestern North Dakota is investigating how the mother of a newborn went home with the wrong baby. Officials with the Mercy Medical Center in Williston say the mistake

was discovered within an hour and the mother was quickly reunited with her own child. Mercy Chief Financial Officer Kerry Monson would not release details about how the mixup happened or what

families were involved. She said in a statement that hospital employees are disheartened by the incident. She says officials are reviewing policies and procedures and will take appropriate action.

today’s wary consumers. From free freight to every other imaginable deal and promotion, buyers were shopping these added inducements as seriously as price/value elements and new introductions. WMC President Robert Maricich indicated at a Monday press conference that pre-registrations exceeded any of the five previous WMC markets, with a 13 percent increase in international registration from February’s numbers and 38 percent more than last July’s pre-registration figures. Like several exhibitors, Powell Company’s Anne Russell, vice president of merchandise, reported it did an extensive mailing in July to encourage accounts to come to the Las Vegas Market, especially since it had decided not to open its High Point showroom for Pre-market this week. Russell said response to the mailing was “very positive,” adding that because of the WMC and High Point Pre-market dates being so close, “We had to make a decision which to participate in and decided WMC would serve as pre-market for us with our buyers.” Another factor in the decision is the fact that the Las Vegas Powell showroom, at 25,000 square feet, is more than double High Point’s 12,000 square feet, “giving us greater space to show our complete collections and introductions, especially youth bedrooms and accents.” At Monday’s press conference, Maricich also reported 70 percent of the 1,400 permanent and temporary exhibitors indicated they would have new product for this September market.

Pregnant teen fatally shot at school bus stop

CHARLOTTE (AP) – A pregnant 15-year-old was shot in the head and killed Monday as she waited at a North Carolina school bus stop, and her baby was in critical condition. The shooting followed a domestic dispute and authorities had identified a supect, said police spokesman Rob Tufano, who declined to elaborate. Tiffany Wright, who was eight months pregnant, was shot before dawn at a stop in north Charlotte. She attended Hawthorne High School, a school with a special program for pregnant teens. Wright was found by her foster mother, who had just walked Wright to the bus stop and returned home, Tufano said. She heard at least three gun-

shots and went outside to find Wright in the street. Wright was rushed to Carolinas Medical Center, where she later died. Hospital spokeswoman Katie Ratchford said the baby was in critical condition. Wright was described as a smart, focused student. “It was clear that Tiffany was academically strong and off to a good start,� Hawthorne Principal Travey Pickard told The Charlotte Observer. Pickard didn’t return a telephone message from The Associated Press, but Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools spokeswoman Cynthia Robbins said grief counselors were available for students. Students said Wright always had a smile on her face.

Thomasville mulls contract for accountants BY DARRICK IGNASIAK ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

THOMASVILLE – The Thomasville City Council will consider awarding a three-year contract Monday night to the accounting firm of Martin Starnes & Associates CPAs. The accounting firm has proposed the contract be $42,000 in 2010, $43,500 in 2011, and $45,000 in 2012. Martin Starnes & Associates CPAs has performed Thomasville’s annual audit for the last three years. In a memo to Thomasville Finance Director Tony Jarrett, Bry-

an Starnes, a partner with the firm, said the company is offering a zero percent increase for 2010 because it is “sensitive to the economic conditions facing the city.� Jarrett said Monday he is “very pleased� with Martin Starnes & Associates CPAs because the accounting firm gives two audits within a year instead of one. According to Jarrett, the accounting firm the city used before Martin Starnes & Associates CPAs charged the city approximately $51,000 in 2006. In other business, the City Council will hold a public hearing on a

How about offering a surgery insurance plan?

I thank Regis Kline for his letter about tort reform (Your View, Sept. 6 “Democrat health care bills contain no tort reform”). There is no question that it is needed, but everyone knows that the Congress will not pass such legislation, since most are lawyers. There is another possible option. Have insurance companies offer surgery insurance for patients. This would allow the private sector to pay for surgical problems including death. No one could bring civil suits against doctors or hospitals, but there would be criminal statues that would be instituted against both so that charges could be brought in case of malpractice. Jail time could be imposed in case of death. The AMA also would have reason to punish those who might be proven guilty. The cost of insurance for malpractice now runs near $250 billion per year – about a quarter of the total cost of health care in this country. The savings would lower costs so that most Americans could afford private insurance for health care. This would not hurt any special interest group, even trial lawyers, because they would still be hired by doctors in the criminal cases. Insurance companies would be happy and patients (and their families) would benefit from the proceeds of surgical insurance purchased for that protection. It would be just like purchasing

flight insurance when you take a trip. Prices of this kind of insurance would be nominal and most important, it would be determined by the patient as to what could be afforded. The savings to government would allow for more people to be covered who cannot afford private health care. Where is it written that we have to pay for everyone’s health care – especially illegal aliens? It’s about time we realize that we can’t be everything to everybody in this country. Thomas Jefferson has flipped over in his grave many times since President Obama’s election. DICK CULLER High Point

Obama administration is unwilling to resist terrorists I’m writing this letter on the anniversary of one of the saddest days in recent history. It’s sad in more ways than one. Today is 9/11. How sad a day for all of the American citizens that lost their lives that day for a radical purpose that some still don’t understand. Some don’t even want to understand because it goes against their ideology and warped

views of the way society should be. Where were those poor souls’ rights that terrible day? Where was the ACLU, the high powered lawyers and Mr. Eric Holder ( I use Mr. with reservations). I do believe they turned a deaf ear and blind eye to what happened that day. I do believe they are afflicted with selective memory. Some citizens chose to stand and be burned alive. Some chose to jump to escape what would be a very torturous death. A little water on their faces that day would have surely been a Godsend to the misery they endured. So, U.S. Attorney General Holder will have to honor his boss’ wishes. He has his orders, and he will see them through. In my opinion, giving the Gitmo terrorist fighters any rights will desecrate the deaths of all who died that day. These fighters are as guilty as the cowards that flew the planes that day. It is called guilt by association. Holder should be aware of that term, being he is tied to an administration that their associations will be their downfall. If an administration will not protect innocent, deceased citizens’ rights, then let me ask you, what’s coming in the near future for those of us that are still here? DON SNIDER High Point

Thomasville debates residency


Michael B. Starn Publisher




Founded in 1885



embers of the Thomasville City Council made the fair decision last week in the matter of whether to require city department heads to live there. The decision, however, might not be the one that most city residents support as general principle. Residency policy questions arose when City Manager Kelly Craver hired Salisbury resident Jeff Insley as police chief earlier this year. It was learned that Thomasville has no requirements for department heads to live in the city, as numerous municipalities across the state do. In fact, Thomasville doesn’t require its city manager to reside in the city. Craver is a resident of Greensboro. Although Thomasville officials probably will address this issue at some time in the future, City Council members decided it was best just now to shelve talk about a residency requirement for department heads. After all, it certainly wouldn’t seem fair to require department heads to live in the city if the manager isn’t required to. According to news reports, all 13 of Thomasville’s department heads, in addition to Craver, live outside of the city. Trying to institute a residency requirement now would be a personnel (and possibly legal) nightmare because residency requirements should be addressed during the interview and hiring process. Although such a policy has pros and cons, it seems that the pros rule and that requiring residency of all department heads does not impose an undue burden. For now, city officials should check the sentiment of Thomasville residents and begin developing a policy based on those feelings that could be adopted to apply to city leaders at some point in the future. If a residency requirement is what the people of Thomasville want, it’s what the people should get.

Answer to a poll question can mean lots of things


f Forrest Gump’s mama was right that “stupid is as stupid does,” then there are quite a few North Carolina politicians, activists and political commentators whose recent public behavior makes them as thick as old molasses. It has become all the rage to ridicule one’s political opponents as not just mistaken but stupid. Democrats are doing it right now by making fun of the so-called Birthers who question President Barack Obama’s place of birth. They refer to polls indicating that significant numbers of Republican-leaning voters aren’t convinced that Obama was born in the United States. It wasn’t that long ago, however, that it was the Republicans doing the name-calling. Back in the 2006-08 period, they had a field day pointing out the large number of Democratic-leaning voters who thought that the 9/11 attacks were an inside job. They were called Truthers – which is, of course, what the term Birther is a response to. With regard to Truthers, Birthers and other Flat-Earthers, my advice is for everyone to just calm down and stop making such jackasses of themselves. Instead of assuming the worst, take a closer look at the particular poll questions involved and apply a little common sense. For example, when a voter responds to a question about where Obama was born with uncertainty, don’t assume that he must necessarily believe the president was born in Kenya, Indonesia or the planet Vulcan. Some of these voters may indeed doubt the official story but others are likely just not sure whether Hawaii became a state before or after Obama’s birth, and whether that matters in determining his citizenship. Rather than yanking a single poll question

out of context and using it to declare large swaths of the voting population to be idiots, folks should look at broader measures of voter knowledge. For example, the Pew Research Center has released a number of nationwide surveys through OPINION its Pew Knowledge Project. The most recent one, from April 2009, John examines public knowledge of Hood such issues as the recession, ■■■ bank bailouts and foreign policy. Out of 12 questions on the news survey, the average number of correct answers was 7.4. Republicans were slightly more likely (8.1) than Democrats (7.2) or Independents (7.3) to answer questions correctly. This is a familiar finding in such quizzes. You’ll also typically find that men score a little better than women, older voters score better than younger voters, and the propensity to answer correctly rises with income and education. None of these findings necessarily speaks to intelligence, by the way. Differing patterns of news consumption probably explain a lot of it. And if you think that only those who can remember the current Dow Jones average are capable of casting wise votes, you have a distorted view of human wisdom. Both of America’s political coalitions, the Center-Right and the Center-Left, include people who know a lot about current events and people who know little. The proportions don’t differ all that much. It is silly to pretend otherwise. Some might even say it’s stupid. JOHN HOOD is president of the John Locke Foundation in Raleigh and publisher of

Knox witness in Italy doubts DNA evidence

PERUGIA, Italy – DNA evidence at the center of a murder trial in Italy of an American student accused of killing her roommate is unreliable, according to a forensic expert testifying for the defense Monday. Adriano Tagliabracci took the stand in the trial of Amanda Knox and codefendant Raffaele Sollecito, which resumed after a summer break, in Perugia, central Italy. Knox and Sollecito are charged with murder and sexual violence in the 2007 slaying of Meredith Kercher.

Iran to meet world nuke powers; 1st talks in a year

VIENNA – Iran warned the U.S. and Israel on Monday it will repel any attack – while also tamping down tensions by agreeing to meet with Washington and other world powers more than a year after talks broke down over Tehran’s refusal to curb its nuclear activities. The U.S., Iran and European Union expressed hope the Oct. 1 talks could lead to substantive negotiations – despite Iranian warnings it would not even discuss meeting U.N. Security Council demands that it freeze uranium enrichment.


Residents of the Pakistani tribal area of Kyber along the Afghanistan border flee their hometown on the suburbs of Peshawar, Pakistan, Monday. Security forces began their latest offensive in the region, allegedly killing over 150 militants.

Missile kills 4 in Pakistan; 18 die in stampede MIR ALI, Pakistan (AP) – A missile fired from a suspected unmanned U.S. drone slammed into a car in a Pakistani tribal region close to the Afghan border Monday, killing four people, intelligence officials and residents said. The apparent American missile strike was the latest of more than 50 in the northwest region since last year aimed at killing top al-Qaida and Taliban leaders. Last month, the head of the Pakistani Taliban was killed in one such strike.

Monday’s attack took place about 1.5 miles from the town of Mir Ali in North Waziristan, killing four people, two officials and witnesses said. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity, saying they need to remain unnamed to do their job effectively. The identities of the victims were not known. Witnesses Ikramullah Khan and Mohammad Salim said the missile hit a vehicle with blackedout windows – a style associated with Taliban fighters in the region. Separately, at least 18

CAIRO – Osama bin Laden said in a new audiotape that President Barack Obama’s strategy in Afghanistan is “hopeless” and called on Americans to resolve the conflict with al-Qaida by ending the war there and breaking the U.S. alliance with Israel. In the message marking the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, the al-Qaida leader avoided his usual rhetoric of jihad and instead took a more analytical tone, claiming its differences with the U.S. stemmed from the IsraeliPalestinian conflict.

KABUL (AP) – An improvised bomb attack killed two U.S. service members Monday in southern Afghanistan where U.S. and NATO troops have stepped up their operations against insurgents in recent months, NATO said. Also in the south, a British soldier was killed in an attack on a foot patrol and another NATO service member died in a blast Sunday, NATO and British officials said Monday. Taliban militants this year have increased their use of roadside bombs, which now account for the majority of U.S.

N.Y. residences raided in terrorism probe

PLACERVILLE, Calif. – A judge on Monday set bail at $30 million for a Northern California man accused of kidnapping then 11-year old Jaycee Dugard and holding her captive for 18 years. In setting the high amount, El Dorado County Superior Court Judge Douglas Phimister cited the serious nature of the charges, injuries to the girl and the fact that Phillip Garrido was on parole at the time of the alleged abduction.

Study: Virus spreads long after fever stops

SAN FRANCISCO – When the coughing stops is probably a better sign of when a swine flu patient is no longer contagious, experts said after seeing new research that suggests the virus can still spread many days after a fever goes away. The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has been telling people to stay home from work and school and avoid contact with others until a day after their fever breaks. The new research suggests they need to be careful for longer.

FBI: Murder, violent crime dropped in 2008

WASHINGTON – Murder and manslaughter dropped almost 4 percent last year, as reported crime overall fell around the country, according to new data released Monday by the FBI. The 3.9 percent decline in killings reported to police was part of a nationwide drop in violent crime of 1.9 percent from 2007 to 2008. Rapes declined 1.6 percent, to the lowest national number in 20 years – about 89,000.

IRVINE, Calif. – Police are investigating whether a custody battle prompted a University of California, Irvine student to kill the mother of his 4-yearold son on campus. Brian Benedict, a 35year-old physics graduate student, was arrested at about 7 p.m. Sunday following the first on-campus killing in the school’s history. He remained jailed on $1 million bail. Benedict and his exwife, Rebecca Benedict, 30, shared custody, but he had been distraught following their breakup and had attempted suicide, court records show. ENTERPRISE NEWS SERVICE REPORTS

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) – Clues increasingly pointed to an inside job Monday in the slaying of a Yale graduate student whose body was found stuffed inside a wall five days after she vanished from a heavily secured lab building accessible only to university employees. Police on Monday sought to calm fears on the Ivy League campus,

not provide details and denied broadcast reports that police had a suspect in custody. Yale officials said the building where Le worked would reopen under increased security. Still, some students worried about their safety. “I’m not walking at nights by myself anymore,” said student Natoya Peart, 21, of Jamaica.

The photos circulating on the Internet show guards hired by ArmorGroup North America to protect the U.S. Embassy in Kabul engaging in lewd behavior and sexual misconduct.

Clues point to inside job in Yale grad student killing

WASHINGTON (AP) – Senate health care negotiators said Monday they’ve cut the cost of their 10-year coverage plan to under $880 billion as they labored for an elusive bipartisan deal with just a day or so left after months of talks. Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus, D-Mont., said he’ll have a formal proposal by midweek – maybe as early as today – to meet a deadline for moving ahead on President Barack Obama’s top domestic priority with or without Republican support. At the same time, Baucus said the bipartisan talks could continue even as his Finance panel begins its formal bill-drafting session next week. Talks continued during the day Monday, and more meetings were expected today. “It’s not just tomorrow or the next day,” said Baucus. “We’re going to keep working.”

Day in the Park Annual festival takes on special meaning this year BY VICKI KNOPFLER ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – This year’s Day in the Park family festival is planned to complement the 150th anniversary of High Point’s founding this year. The folk-life area of Saturday’s festival at High Point City Lake Park will have added events and be located in a more prominent area of the park, said Travis Compton, community outreach coordinator of the sponsoring High Point Area Arts Council. The folk-life area also will feature historical re-enactment groups, historical crafts and the re-creation of a field hospital, complete with (artificial) severed limbs, which traditionally are fascinating to children. Weaver Victoria Sowers will set up a loom in the folk-life area, and people attending Day in the Park may help weave a tapestry that will include items representative of High Point. When Sowers finishes the tapestry, it will be exhibited in High Point, Compton said. Artist Bruce Shores, who teaches at High Point University, his students and anyone who wants to help will create a sidewalk chalk mural, “History of High Point,” in an area sponsored by Theatre Art Galleries. It will depict people and places with a High Point connection, including John Coltrane, The Little Red School House, Haley House, the Big Bureau, Depot and Showplace. Theatre Art Galleries also will lead a project in the children’s area, “Hats Off to High Point.” Volunteers, including local Girl Scouts, will help children create hats with a High Point theme. Entertainment on two stages includes musicians on both stages and storyteller Charlotte Hamlin and bellydancing performances and lessons on the Carousel Stage. As usual at Day in the Park artists, crafters and food vendors will sell items, and groups that provide services to the community will staff areas and give information about their groups.


John A. Magee was appointed president and Chief executive officer of Capel Inc., Capelsie Mills Inc., and Capel Real Estate & Development Inc. Magee is a partner with management consulting firm Anderson Bauman Tourtellot Vos & Co., which was engaged earlier this year to conduct a review of the companies’ strategy and operations.

Some familiar faces will return to Day in the Park this year along with some new entertainment acts. Civil War re-enactors (top photo) will set up camp with their field hospital demonstration, and Trope Bellyssima (left) is one of several performers on the entertainment stage this year.

Deadline nears for input on school plans ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

HIGH POINT — Parents have until Friday to comment on improvement plans for low-performing Guilford County schools. The plans for the 10 schools will be revised and presented to the Guilford County Board of Education on Sept. 24 for approval. High Point area schools

on the list are Montlieu Math and Science Academy, Fairview Elementary, Oak Hill Elementary, Parkview Elementary and T. Wingate Andrews High School. Low-performing schools failed to meet their expected growth standards and have less than 50 percent of their students’ scores at or above Achievement Level III. School districts

must develop improvement plans for the schools. All of the low-performing schools had performance composites below the district average of 66.5 percent on the Adequate Yearly Progress grade-level score. The performance composite is the percentage of students’ scores at or above grade level on all end-of-grade and end-

of-course tests for ABC results. High Point University School of Education students will assist Montlieu academy teachers by mentoring students as well as tutoring in math and organizing science fairs, multicultural events and a book buddies program. School problems include “significant” teacher turn-


over and a high percentage of at-risk students, Mariann Tillery, dean of the School of Education, said last week. A leading district goal is to have no low-performing schools by 2012. The school board approved this month pumping $213,387 more into the schools, six of which already receive Title I funds for school improvements.

Family cherishes patriarch who never learned to read


ear Abby: “J.J. in South Carolina” (July 12) is dating a man whom she suspects cannot read. My grandfather is illiterate, and he’s the smartest man I know. He and Grandma have successfully operated their own business for over 40 years. Papa can read and draw blueprints. He can also complete a mathematical equation before I can punch it into my calculator. He “invents” and builds all kinds of gadgets that make life easier for us. Papa had only a secondgrade education. As the oldest of 11 children, he worked in the fields to help support his family. My grandparents, married for 51 years, are the glue that holds our family together. Papa is intelligent, self- educated through years of hard work and life experience – as well as kind and generous. I hope J.J. will give John a chance. At this point in his life, being able to read shouldn’t be an issue. If J.J. can open her heart and let him in, it may be the best decision she ever made in her life. – Proud Granddaughter in Alabama

He had many friends and never had a negative word to say about anyone. He was a wonderful husband, a devoted father, and no one ever considered him “illiterate.” J.J. should rethink her priorities, or let this man go so he can meet someone who will appreciate him for who he is. – R.B. in Orange County, Calif.

Dear Abby: Illiteracy is a far larger problem in this country than most people realize. It keeps folks from enjoying life fully. Can you imagine not being able to read your child a bedtime story? What if you can’t read street signs or write a check?

Reading can be beneficial, but knowing that someone loves them just the way they are is equally important. – An Educator in Meriden, Kan. Dear Abby: My mother met a man at a Parents Without Partners dance and fell in love. She has a Ph.D. in special education; he was an electrician. He was dyslexic, and no one knew how to teach him to read when he was young. He apprenticed under a master electrician to learn his trade. Mom always thought she had to marry an intellectual equal, but after meeting my stepfather, she decided she’d rather be with someone sweet and kind who adored her. After they married, she found someone who specialized in teaching adults with dyslexia. One of my stepdad’s proudest moments was the first time he didn’t have to pretend he had left his reading glasses at home to order from a menu. He and Mom were married for 15 years until his death.

Rehab key to cardiac recovery BY DR. STEVEN C. ROHRBECK


iving with serious medical problems can be difficult, and this is especially true with heart and lung disease. After hospitalization for heart attack, bypass surgery or stent placement, many people struggle to regain their strength, overcome their fears and return to normal life. Many need help understanding their disease and want to know how to reduce the chance of future problems. A cardiac rehabilitation program is the best way to meet these needs. Cardiac rehabilitation goals include improvement in exercise habits and exercise tolerance. Optimization of coronary risk factors include improvement in cholesterol profiles, body weight, blood sugar levels, blood pressure levels and cessation of smoking. Attention is devoted to the emotional responses to living with heart disease, reduction of stress and anxiety and lessening of depression. An essential goal, particularly for elderly patients, is functional independence. Helping younger patients return to appropriate work is beneficial to both individual patients and society. Specific targets of rehabilitation include nutritional counseling and weight management to help reduce obesity and promote long term health. Blood pressure, cholesterol levels and diabetes management through diet, exercise, medications and smoking cessation is stressed. Psychological problems are common after acute cardiac events, with 20-45 percent of patients having significant depression after a heart attack. All patients undergo a quality of life and stress assessment, and referral for psychological counseling is available when needed. Improvement in physical activity is a major component to any rehabilitation program. All patients have an assessment of activity levels and exercise capacity prior to starting the program and have a specific plan tailored to their individual limitations to maximize their potential. All patients are on heart monitors, and exercise is closely supervised to help overcome any fears. This weekend’s 23rd Warren Rives 5K and Fun Run will benefit scholarships for patients at Heart Strides Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehab at Carolina Regional Heart Center, High Point Regional Health System.

Infant’s skull designed for growing brain


ear Dr. Donohue: I have a question I have never seen in your column. Twenty-five years ago, my grandson was born with closure of the skull. They operated on him to let the skull grow. He saw a doctor regularly until he was 5 years old. The doctor remarked that the boy had developed a good facial shape. I often have wondered why this happened. His mother, my daughterin-law, was adopted and does not know her family medical history. Did this result from a vitamin deficiency during pregnancy? A difficult labor? A heredity thing? And how is his future, in terms of having his own children? – D.V.



A newborn’s brain must have room to grow. If the skull encased it in a rigid, solid structure, it couldn’t enlarge. Nature devised a way that permits brain growth by creating soft spots in the skull (the anterior and posterior fontanels) and sutures between the bones of the skull. Sutures are gaps that are eventually filled in with bone, but not until the brain has developed. Your grandson was born with a skull with one or more of those sutures closed. The condition is called craniosynostosis. It happens in about one out of every 2,000 births. Not only does premature suture closure affect brain development, but it often














leads to a misshapen head. When the main, central suture is closed, the skull HEALTH becomes narrow and Dr. Paul pointed, Donohue like a ■■■ tower. Surgeons can create sutures so brain growth occurs normally and skull deformities are prevented. What causes this? In most cases – 80 percent – it’s something that just happens without an identifiable cause. In the rest, it has to do with genes, and there are usually other genetic problems associated with it. It is neither due to a vitamin deficiency nor to a difficult labor. Your grandson sounds like his case was one where genetics are not involved. Dear Dr. Donohue: My husband has some kind of sleep disorder. He doesn’t believe he has a problem. I know about restless leg syndrome, but he has something beyond that. About four nights a week, his legs kick all over, and he throws his body in every direction. The bed bounces like a trampoline. In one month, he made large holes in two quality flannel sheets. Several times, he has hit me across the face. What is this problem? – M.L. You describe peri-

odic limb movements of sleep, PLMS, which used to be called nocturnal myoclonus. Most of the time, only the legs are involved. The toes, ankles, knees and hips involuntarily bend and straighten during sleep. The movements happen every 20 to 40 seconds, and each episode lasts from a few minutes to hours. Restless leg syndrome is a crawling sensation beneath the skin of the legs. The person has to get up and walk around to put an end to the annoying sensations. Sometimes it is associated with iron deficiency, and sometimes restless leg patients also experience periodic limb movements. Pramipexole or ropinirole treat both conditions. Your husband should see a doctor. Dear Dr. Donohue: Is distilled water bad for drinking? Can you chew too much gum? My husband chews about four pieces every day. – P.M. Distilling water involves boiling water and condensing the water vapor by cooling it. Components dissolved in the water are left behind. You can drink distilled water. You will miss out on the minerals contained in most water and on fluoride added to city water, but you can get these elements in other ways. If you chew too much sugar-containing gum, you promote cavities. Too much sugarless gum can cause diarrhea. Four sticks are not too much.

NEW YORK (AP) – The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences says Tina Fey, Kiefer Sutherland and Simon Baker will be among the presenters at this Sunday’s primetime Emmy Awards. Each is a nominee. Baker’s freshman hit “The Mentalist” earned him a nomination for best actor in a drama. Sutherland won that award in 2006, and is nominated this year for his role in a special “24” movie. Fey is up for best actress in a comedy, the

“Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” was “one of the best videos of all time.” As he had numerous times before, West made sure an awards show spotlight shone on him. A stunned Swift staggered and didn’t get to finish her acceptance speech. The crowd booed West, who shortly after was asked to leave the show and left the building. But Swift, who won for her video “You Belong With Me,” got a chance to recapture her time in the spotlight. Toward the end of the evening, when Beyonce won video of the year for “Single Ladies,” the pop star promptly invited Swift out on stage to properly “have her moment.” “They told me to stand by the side of the stage,” Swift said. “I didn’t really know what was going to go down, but I thought it was so wonderful and gracious of her to do what she’s always done.”

Lloyd Mickens, prostate cancer clinician/educator at Piedmont Health Services, says African-American males should have a prostate exam by age 40 and all men should have one by age 50.

A crucial test An exam many men don’t look forward to is especially important for African-Americans BY JIMMY TOMLIN ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER


loyd Mickens is a man on a mission. Specifically, Mickens wants more men – especially more black men – to be tested for prostate cancer. “We’re encouraging all men of a certain age to get a checkup once a year,” says Mickens, the prostate cancer clinician/educator for Pied-

’There’s a lot of research going on trying to determine why AfricanAmerican men are at such high risk for prostate cancer, but they really don’t know.’ Lloyd Mickens Piedmont Health Services mont Health Services and Sickle Cell Agency. “AfricanAmerican men are at a higher risk, so they should be tested at an earlier age – by age 40 – and everybody else should be tested by 50.” Piedmont Health Services will host “Men Get Cancer, Too,” a free lunch-and-learn



“Men Get Cancer, Too,” a program about prostate cancer, will be presented Thursday, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., at Piedmont Health Services and Sickle Cell Agency, 401 Taylor Ave. (inside Southside Recreation Center). The program will include lunch. Following the program, free prostate cancer screenings will be provided. Admission is free, but seating is limited and registration is recommended. To register or for more information, call Kesha at 886-2437 or send an e-mail to program about prostate cancer, to be followed by free screenings for program participants. The program is open to all men, but Mickens points out that prostate cancer is a larger threat to black men. “There’s a lot of research going on trying to determine why African-American men are at such high risk for prostate cancer, but they really don’t know,” Mickens says. “From people I’ve talked to, I think a lot of African-American men tend to think of cancer as something that mainly affects Caucasians. They don’t think cancer’s going to affect them, when in fact they’re at a higher risk than the average male Caucasian.” Statistically, one in four black men are at risk of getting prostate cancer at some point in their lives, according to numbers provided by Mickens. Black men have about a

60-percent higher incidence rate of prostate cancer than Caucasian men, and their risk of dying from prostate cancer is 240 percent higher than that of Caucasians. Prostate cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer death in American men, behind only lung cancer, according to the American Cancer Society. About one man in 35 will die of prostate cancer, which accounts for about 10 percent of cancer-related deaths in men. According to American Cancer Society estimates, about 192,280 new cases of prostate cancer will be diagnosed in 2009, and approximately 27,360 men will die of prostate cancer this year. The good news, though, is that prostate cancer, when detected early, can be treated successfully. “If it’s caught early, people can survive quite a while


longer,” Mickens says. That’s where screenings come into play. Although men rarely experience any symptoms from prostate cancer during its earliest stages, two simple tests can help doctors diagnose the disease. The first test is a blood test, in which doctors can detect the likelihood of prostate cancer by testing the amount of prostate-specific antigen, or PSA, in the blood. The second way of finding prostate cancer is the digital rectal exam, in which the doctor inserts a gloved finger into the patient’s rectum to feel the prostate gland. If the results of either test are abnormal, further testing is needed to see if the patient has prostate cancer. In addition to Thursday’s free screenings, in October the Piedmont Health Service and Sickle Cell Agency will begin offering free screenings at its Greensboro clinic, located at 1102 E. Market St. Also in October, the agency will begin training male volunteers to go out in the community and talk to other men about prostate cancer and the importance of being tested for the disease. The first training session will be held Oct. 3, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and volunteers can sign up by contacting Mickens at (336) 274-1507. | 888-3579

The emergency department of Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center has won a Thomson Reuters 2009 Healthcare Advantage Award for performance efficiency by decreasing the length-of-stay time and the number of patients who left without being seen by a physician. The awards were recently presented in San Diego at the 2009 Healthcare Advantage Conference. “Patient volume in the ED is an ongoing challenge for us, but we’ve made a lot of gains and improvements,” said James Bryant, director of emergency and transport services. Over the past five years, the emergency department has experienced a 50percent increase in the number of patient visits with limited additions to staff and space. As a result, the emergency department was no longer able to exceed national benchmarks for key measures in length of stay, care of pneumonia, and stroke and heart attack patients. The ED’s performance was also recognized last year when it was named a Best Overall Performer for emergency department flow by University HealthSystem Consortium for the second time. The emergency department logged 92,532 patient visits last year, utilizing 52 treatment spaces. Of that number, 21.4 percent were admitted to the Medical Center for further care. Only 2.21 percent left the ED without being seen – one of the lowest scores of the survey group.

Think about what you are going to say and how you want things to turn out. ★★★ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t let someone else’s uncertainty bog you down. You have to move forward if you want to get things done in a timely fashion. Forming an alliance with someone you feel is doing a good job could lead to future projects. ★★★ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Dreams can come true if you put in time and effort. Don’t be afraid to put your ideas on the table. A partnership will give your plans a boost. Mix a little fun into your day. ★★★★ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don’t get distracted by someone who is possessive, jealous or trying to make your life difficult. Concentrate on the here and now and what needs to be done. Before making an assumption, check the facts. ★★ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You’ll have to act fast and efficiently to avoid critical comments and alterations to your plans. Being covered by someone financially may be nice but it will come with a price tag. Love will be flawless if you play by the rules. ★★★★★ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don’t question what you are doing when it’s someone else you should be watching. A sudden financial change can go either way, depending on how conscientious you are about your money and who has access to it. ★★★ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You’ll be drawn to someone unusual, interesting and available. Open up discussions about your talents as well as your preferences. Money is likely to come your way because of the information you share. ★★★ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t count on others doing things the way you want them to be done. Fine-tune every detail, reflecting your ability to do a good job. Don’t mix business and pleasure – you’ll be taken advantage of. ★★★




Unlucky Louie went to pay his losses in his Chicago game – and found his wallet empty. “If my wife isn’t taking my cash, she’s cashing my checks,” Louie sighed. “I feel like Wyatt Earp: I have to be as quick on the deposit as she is quick on the draw.” “You’d save money here if you’d slow down,” I said. Louie was declarer at four spades, and West led the jack of hearts. Like a flash, Louie finessed with dummy’s queen. East won and shifted to the ten of clubs, and the defense took two clubs and got a diamond at the end. Down one.


As usual, Louie played without thinking at the first trick: He must let West’s jack of hearts win. Louie wins the next heart with the ace, draws trumps and leads the queen of hearts, ruffing out East’s king. He can then discard a club on the ten of hearts, losing a heart, a club and a diamond. East can’t prevail by overtaking with the king of hearts at Trick One to lead a club. Then EastWest get two clubs but no diamond trick.



DAILY QUESTION You hold: S Q 10 7 3 H A Q 10 3 D K 6 3 C 8 6. Your partner opens one diamond, you respond one heart and he bids one spade. What do you say? ANSWER: How high to raise? A bid of three spades would be invitational to game. If your queen of spades were the ace, you’d surely raise to four spades. I’d try four spades with the actual hand. The king in partner’s first suit will be useful, the heart honors are in combination and the trump support is good. 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.

Weaver leaves amateur golf in rear view O

n Sunday evening, Drew Weaver celebrated being part of the best amateur golf team in the world. Sunday night, he signed his name on the dotted line with Crown Sports Management and agent Thomas Jordan. “Today, I’m officially a professional golfer,” Weaver said Monday when reached by phone. “That was exciting (last night).” And now? He waits. Weaver will fly to Oakmont Country Club outside of Pittsburgh for a Wednesday pro-am event, but other than that, he’ll be eagerly anticipating word on sponsors’ exemptions for the PGA Tour’s Fall Series. Five tournaments stretching from Oct. 1 to Nov. 15 offer purses in the millions: For some, it’s a chance to play their way up the final money list and maintain Tour status for next year. For others such as Weaver, it would provide valuable experience for Qualifying School. Weaver already had contacted the PGA tournaments – plus three Nationwide Tour events – in the wake of his 40th-place finish at the U.S. Open. Now his management company also will be on the case. Crown Sports, based in Sea Island, Ga., is “more like a fraternity of guys than anything,” Weaver explained. “The services they have to offer were very, very appealing. It was a pretty easy decision.” The agency represents a pro golf list that includes the likes of Davis Love III, Boo Weekley, Lucas Glover, Brandt Snedecker and Jonathan Byrd. Not only will Weaver be represented by Crown; he’ll live near the agency as well. The High Point Central graduate, now 22, said he’ll move to St. Simon’s Island – a little more than an hour between Savannah and Jacksonville – early next year to be closer to coaches and facilities. It all marks the end of a whirlwind amateur career that included a golf scholarship to Virginia Tech, a championship in the British Amateur, appearances in the British Open, Masters and U.S. Open, and then earning a spot on the prestigious Walker Cup team. Over the weekend, Weaver halved one singles match, then lost a singles match and a foursome to the opponents from Great Britain and Ireland. But the Americans won their third straight Walker Cup – the amateur version of the Ryder Cup – with a 161⁄2 to 91⁄2 romp. “It was a little bittersweet for about five minutes, but


I gave it all I had and I felt I made a lot of great swings,” Weaver said of losing his two matches Sunday at Merion SPORTS Golf Club outside of PhilaSteve delphia even Hanf as his team ■■■ prevailed. “It was an incredible experience. I don’t care if I would’ve lost every match 5-and-4. The team still won, I had an incredible week and I’ll take lots of great memories from it.” Given Weaver’s resume of big-time events, he stands a decent chance of landing in some of the upcoming PGA events. The selection process is not an easy one, though, and Weaver said he’ll hit a few Monday qualifiers if needed. “It helps to have been out there before, to get a feel for what it’s like inside the ropes,” Weaver explained. “I certainly met a bunch of great people inside the golf industry and I think all my experiences will help my cause.” While a couple of big fall tournaments could land a young player on the PGA Tour – in theory – with paydays in the $750,000 neighborhood, Weaver has his sights set on gaining experience for the trials of the infamous Q School finale: six rounds of pressure-cooker conditions at Bear Lakes Country Club in West Palm Beach, Fla., from Dec. 2-7. Some 160 hopefuls will be seeking a top-25 finish to earn PGA Tour cards for 2010, while the next 50 or so players on the leaderboard will be exempt on the Nationwide circuit. By making the cut at the U.S. Open, Weaver exempted himself from the first qualifying stage: 11 tournaments across the country next month. Top players from those four-round events make it to the second qualifying stage: four more rounds held at six sites from Nov. 18-21. Only the top players from the second stage reach the Q School final round, simply to encounter 108 more holes. “Being exempt into the second stage is a huge deal for me,” Weaver said. “I’ll be getting everything in regards to golf as solid as possible, go in there and try to win it, not just be in the top 25. I want to be as prepared as possible. I’m sure I’ll be nervous.” Only this time, those will be pro butterflies rather than amateur jitters. | 888-3526


Jake Delhomme (17) is sacked by Philadelphia Eagles’ Akeem Jordan (56) during the first half of the Carolina Panthers’ 38-10 loss Sunday. Despite committing five turnovers, Delhomme remains the team’s starter.

Panthers stick with Delhomme CHARLOTTE (AP) — Jake Delhomme is still Carolina’s starter — even after 11 turnovers in two games. Coach John Fox defended his beleaguered quarterback Monday, saying his status “hasn’t changed” a day after he threw four interceptions and lost a fumble in the Panthers’ 38-10 loss to Philadelphia. Pressured all game, but also making poor throws and decisions, Delhomme nearly matched his six-turnover performance in Carolina’s blowout playoff loss to Arizona in January. His turnovers Sunday led to 24 Eagles points, and Fox pulled him after he threw consecutive interceptions in the third quarter. In Carolina’s last 22 possessions against the Cardinals and Eagles, Delhomme has thrown nine interceptions and lost two fumbles. Yet, Delhomme will start next week at Atlanta. “It’s like Tiger Woods doesn’t win every tournament. (Roger) Federer doesn’t win every tournament,” Fox said. “There’s a lot of people out there that practice and get paid, too.” Delhomme said he “took his medicine” in a film session Monday that had to resemble a horror flick. “Did I beat myself up last night? Absolutely. But it happens. That’s just how this business is,” Delhomme said. “That’s why these seats are so precious. There are only 32 of us in the world.” Delhomme, who was booed unmercifully by the home fans Sunday, still has a seat at that table. And Carolina has few options behind him. Three months after his play-



McNabb’s status unsure for Sunday. 2A

off debacle, the Panthers gave the 34-year-old Delhomme a new five-year, $42.5 million contract. It immediately freed up needed salary-cap space this year, but it also included $20 million in guaranteed money. The Panthers then didn’t sign another QB and Delhomme had no serious competition in training camp. Josh McCown beat out Matt Moore for the No. 2 job, but McCown sprained his left knee and foot after replacing Delhomme Sunday. McCown was wearing a protective boot Monday and was leaning on a crutch. The Panthers placed backup McCown on injured reserve and signed veteran quarterback A.J. Feeley and have placed backup Josh McCown on injured reserve. Feeley, who was released by Philadelphia this month, provides a veteran presence behind Delhomme. Matt Moore, who finished Sunday’s game after Delhomme was benched and McCown went down, is the only other quarterback on the roster. Meanwhile, several players in the locker room Monday rushed to Delhomme’s defense. “Jake, we didn’t give him a chance,” left tackle Jordan Gross said. Added center Ryan Kalil: “In all reality, it’s kind of tough for him to make plays when he’s got guys in his face.”




ASCAR’s Chase for the Championship kicks off on Sunday with a visit to that storied speedway in ... Loudon, New Hampshire? Yep, the first of 10 playoff races takes the green flag at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Gosh, when I think great NASCAR venues, my thoughts circle around such locales as Martinsville, Talladega and Charlotte, which host Chase events, as well as Daytona, Bristol, Atlanta and Darlington, which do not. Funny, but Loudon does not come to mind.

As a TV junkie, when I hear “Loudon,” I think of the classic Bob Newhart character who ran an inn in Vermont and introduced us to Larry, Darryl and Darryl. You know, I think even Larry, Darryl and Darryl would know better than to start the NASCAR Chase in Loudon, N.H. You don’t gain NASCAR playoff momentum in New Hampshire. To be fair, lots of great things did happen in the Granite State. Did you know that: •New Hampshire is the only state that ever played host at the formal conclusion of a for-

eign war. In 1905, Portsmouth was the scene of the treaty ending the Russo-Japanese War. •The first potato planted in the United States was at Londonderry Common Field in 1719. •Alan Bartlett Shepard Jr., the first American to travel in space, is from East Derry, New Hampshire. So let’s give a hearty salute to New Hampshire. But let’s also find another track to start the Chase for the Championship.



Finally healthy after two years of neck and back problems, Brian Urlacher gave everyone a blast from the past during the regular season opener when he lowered his shoulder and plowed over Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. His 10th season was off to a good start. And then, it was over. The Chicago Bears’ star linebacker underwent surgery Monday to repair a dislocated right wrist and will not be back this season — a major blow for a team with high expectations. Team spokesman Jim Christman confirmed the bad news for the Bears. There was no immediate word from Urlacher other than a text message to the Chicago Tribune that said simply: “season is over.” The injury occurred in the first quarter of Sunday night’s 21-15 loss at Green Bay. He played in the second quarter, but left on the Packers’ first drive of the second half. While the arrival of Pro Bowl quarterback Jay Cutler sent expectations in Chicago soaring, the Bears were also counting on a healthy Urlacher to help them get back to the playoffs after missing postseason the past two years. The six-time Pro Bowler, now 31, appeared to be in better shape after being limited by a bad back.

Juan Martin del Potro reacts after winning the fourth set over Roger Federer during the men’s finals championship at the U.S. Open on Monday. Del Potro won in five sets.

Federer falls apart in U.S. Open shocker THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK (AP) — Normally so cool, so consistent, so in control of his emotions and his matches, Roger Federer let the U.S. Open championship slip from his grasp. Two points from victory against inexperienced, unheralded Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina, two points from a sixth consecutive title at Flushing Meadows and a record-extending 16th Grand Slam overall, Federer, quite simply, fell apart Monday. He railed at the chair umpire. His legs grew weary. His double-faults mounted. He could not figure out a way to stop the 6-foot-6 del Potro from pounding forehand after forehand past him. In a result as surprising for who lost as how it happened, the sixth-seeded del Potro came back to win his first Grand Slam title by upsetting the No. 1-seeded Federer 3-6, 7-6 (5), 4-6, 7-6 (4), 6-2. “Can’t have them all,” Federer said. He had won 40 consecutive matches at Flushing Meadows. He had won 33 of his previous 34 Grand Slam matches. And he has made the final at 17 of the past 18 Grand Slam tourna-

ments, 21 overall. Del Potro? This was the 20-year-old’s first Grand Slam final, and he was 0-6 against Federer until now.

WILLIAMS APOLOGIZES NEW YORK (AP) — Serena Williams apologized Monday for what she called her “inappropriate outburst” during her semifinal loss to Kim Clijsters at the U.S. Open. Williams was short on contrition in the postmatch news conference after her profanity-laced, finger-pointing tirade at a lineswoman Saturday night — and again in a prepared statement Sunday. “I want to sincerely apologize FIRST to the lines woman, Kim Clijsters, the USTA and mostly tennis fans everywhere for my inappropriate outburst,” Williams’ latest statement said. It was released by the U.S. Tennis Association about a half-hour before Williams and her sister, Venus, played in the women’s doubles final, which they won for their 10th Grand Slam title as a team. Given a chance to publicly deliver an apology during the postmatch ceremony, Williams declined.

Bills crumble in clutch THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Tom Brady threw two touchdown passes in the final 2:06 as New England rallied from an 11-point deficit to beat Buffalo 25-24 on Monday night. Leodis McKelvin fumbled on the kickoff return after the Patriots pulled within five points and placekicker Stephen Gostkowski recovered at the Buffalo 31. Brady needed three plays before hitting Benjamin Watson for the decisive 16-yard touchdown with 50 seconds to go. Just 1:16 earlier, he found Watson on a similar play for an 18-yard score.


Donovan McNabb once played four quarters on a broken ankle. A cracked rib can’t keep him out. Can it? “He’s pretty sore,” coach Andy Reid said Monday. “He’s going to try and battle through it. He’ll struggle to practice. He’s going to do everything he possibly can to try to play. We’ll see how that goes. He’s staying optimistic about that.” McNabb is not ruling himself out for the Eagles’ game against New Orleans next Sunday. Third-year pro Kevin Kolb filled in for McNabb during Philadelphia’s 3810 victory over Carolina in the season opener. He would start against the Saints if McNabb can’t play. The Eagles signed Jeff Garcia on Monday.

Teixeira lifts Yankees NEW YORK (AP) — Mark Teixeira hit a tworun triple on a play that caused Angels center fielder Torii Hunter to lose a shoe, then doubled to start the go-ahead rally in the eighth inning that led the New York Yankees over Los Angeles 5-3 Monday night in a possible playoff preview. New York broke a 3-all

tie when pinch-runner Brett Gardner took third as part of a double steal and came home as catcher Mike Napoli bounced the throw past third baseman Chone Figgins for an error. Robinson Cano added a run-scoring single, and Mariano Rivera finished to reach 40 saves for the first time in four years.

Yates admits UNC offense ‘ugly’ in win BY BRIANA GORMAN ENTERPRISE DURHAM BUREAU

CHAPEL HILL — Two days after squeaking past Connecticut, North Carolina quarterback T.J. Yates summed up Monday what he saw when looking back at film of the 12-10 victory. “It was ugly,” Yates said. But while Yates admitted UNC’s offense — including himself — was anemic for three quarters Saturday, it was the junior’s composure and leadership down the stretch that helped the Tar Heels improve to 2-0 to start the season. “I don’t think there’s any way we win the game without T.J.’s maturity at quarterback,” UNC coach Butch Davis said. “I told him after the game, I don’t even know who said it, but sometimes when all the stuff around you is falling apart, the person in the middle of the storm, you better be able to maintain your composure and maintain sense of what you can do to help rectify that.” Before UNC started its first scoring at the end of the third quarter, it had 109 yards of offense and minus-2 rushing yards. Yates, playing behind an offensive line with two new starters, was sacked six times and completed 12-of-18 passes for 111 yards.

“I got a little frustrated going into the third quarter,” said Yates, who finished 23-of-32 for 233 yards. “I think everybody was frustrated that we weren’t scoring points or getting much going at all on offense.” But even though Yates was less than pleased with his performance, he remained positive on the sidelines. He said he just tried to forget the bad plays and focus on improving the next play. The results were a couple of big throws that eventually led to points. On the first play of the Tar Heels’ first scoring drive at the end of the third, Yates threw an incomplete pass but then completed his next five passes for gains of 13, 12, 26, 9 and 7 yards. The 78yard drive orchestrated by Yates eventually ended in a field goal for UNC’s first points of the day. Davis said that having Yates, a third-year starter, at the helm at the end of a close game was an invaluable edge. “There’s a lot of guys in that situation,” Davis said, “that would’ve felt like two things: One, I’ve either got to try to win it all by myself and just start throwing interception after interception after interception and then you just get blown out, or just get so frustrated that you lose your faith and your composure.”


Toney Baker (22), the former Ragsdale standout, cuts through the Murray State defense during N.C. State’s 65-7 victory on Saturday. Baker contributed three touchdowns during the rout.

O’Brien gives Wolfpack better grade RALEIGH (AP) — North Carolina State took a giant step forward last week by putting 65 points on the scoreboard. The opponent may have been a Football Championship Subdivision team, but that didn’t stop coach Tom O’Brien from seeing improvement beyond the boxscore. “You can tell if a guy’s in a good blocking position or good tackling position or backpedaling properly,” O’Brien said Monday. “That’s why we talk all the time, it doesn’t matter what it says on the jersey or the helmet, you have to respect the game and play the game.” The Wolfpack’s offense — neu-

tralized during a season-opening 7-3 loss to South Carolina — is feeling much more confident after a 65-7 rout of Murray State last week. Now comes Gardner-Webb, another team from the FCS, which visits Raleigh on Saturday night. N.C. State (1-1) found the end zone just 87 seconds in against the Racers and led 45-0 at halftime, giving the impression that the offense may have found its groove. Two running backs scored three touchdowns each, and dropped passes — a critical part of the loss to South Carolina — were almost nonexistent. “We had to get better pass protection, we had to get better at throw-

ing and catching, doing a lot of things,” O’Brien said. “We did (get better). From a technical standpoint, we were in a good position, running routes the right way, and the quarterback was throwing the ball on time.” Wilson ran his school-record streak to passes without an interception to 293. Among college quarterbacks, he trails only Kentucky’s Andre Woodson, who threw 325 passes without an interception in 2006 and 2007. Teammate Julian Williams said the streak shows how far the redshirt sophomore has come in a short time.

Skinner among ACC weekly award winners GREENSBORO (AP) — Two quarterbacks and two players from Georgia Tech are among the Atlantic Coast Conference’s weekly award winners. The ACC on Monday named Wake Forest quarterback Riley Skinner

and Clemson freshman Kyle Parker as two of its six players of the week. Also named by the league were Yellow Jackets defensive end Derrick Morgan and kicker Scott Blair, Florida State tight end Caz Piurowski and Duke cornerback Leon Wright.

Skinner is the offensive back of the week after leading the Demon Deacons back from a 14-point deficit against Stanford. He scored the winning touchdown with 2 seconds left in a 24-17 victory. Parker is the rookie of the week after throwing for three TDs.

NEW YORK (AP) – Stocks clawed back from early losses to post moderate gains as traders funneled money into utilities and industrial stocks. Major market indexes ended at their highest levels in nearly a year. Stocks slid at the open following a drop in overseas markets on worries that a trade war would erupt between the U.S. and China. But the market recovered from an early dip that sent the Dow Jones industrial average down 100 points as investors seized on the opportunity to inject new money into shares. The Dow ended with a gain of 21 points. Utility AES Corp. helped pull the market higher after The Wall Street Journal reported that China’s investment arm is interested in buying a stake in the company.

Analysts said the day’s modest gains were impressive given the market’s strong run last week. They follow a powerful six-month rally that has lifted the Standard & Poor’s 500 index 55.1 percent. According to preliminary calculations, the Dow rose 21.39, or 0.2 percent, to 9,626.80. It had been down about 109 points at its low. The broader Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 6.61, or 0.6 percent, to 1,049.34, an 11-month high. The Nasdaq composite index rose 10.88, or 0.5 percent, to 2,091.78. The day’s early losses came after the U.S. government late Friday imposed trade penalties on tires coming from China. The Chinese government filed a complaint with the World Trade Organization. Investors had worried it would erupt into a tariff dispute .

Obama warned financial titans on Monday – the first anniversary of the Lehman Brothers collapse – they could not count on any more bailouts. He credited his administration and the $787 billion stimulus package rammed through Congress in the first days of his taking office for pulling the country back from the brink.

“We can be confident that the storms of the past two years are beginning to break,” he said. And even as the economy begins a “return to normalcy,” Obama said, “normalcy cannot lead to complacency.” Nevertheless, Obama said, “Instead of learning the lessons of Lehman and the crisis from which we

are still recovering, they are choosing to ignore them.” His tough message warned the financial community to “hear my words: We will not go back to the days of reckless behavior and unchecked excess at the heart of this crisis, where too many were motivated only by the appetite for quick kills and bloated bonuses.”

China files complaint on tire tariffs goods that have threatened to strain relations as Beijing and Washington cooperate on complex issues including the economic crisis and North Korea. News of China’s filing with the World Trade Organization sent Asian markets down 2 percent and more Monday on worries about the potential impact on the

global economic recovery. But investors appeared to take a less dire view of the dispute as the day wore on. European markets were down marginally by late in the trading and U.S. markets were flat by midday. Many private economists said they expected both sides would find a way to avoid a full-blown trade

Obama touts Wall Street changes

NEW YORK (AP) – President Barack Obama sternly warned Wall Street Monday against returning to the sort of reckless and unchecked behavior that threatened the U.S. with a second Great Depression like that of the 1930s. Even as he noted the U.S. economy and financial system were pulling out of a downward spiral,

war that would harm producers in both countries. “The big message from China to the United States is think twice, think three times before repeating this kind of relief for a U.S. industry because if you do this again, we are going to hit you again,” said Gary Hufbauer, a trade expert at the Peterson Institute.

Speaking to reporters in Frankfurt, Siegfried Wolf said part of his company’s plan for General Motors Co.’s European unit envisions about 4,500 possible job cuts in Germany, where Adam Opel GmbH is based, under plans outlined in July.

EU forecasts end to recession BRUSSELS – The European Union said Monday that the recession in the euro-zone and EU will likely have ended in the third quarter with the resumption of modest economic growth. The EU executive sees both the euro-zone and the EU growing 0.2 percent in the third quarter compared to the three months before, and improving just 0.1 percent in the final quarter of the year.

Judge rejects BofA deal

NEW YORK (AP) – A federal judge on Monday rejected a $33 million settlement between the Securities and Exchange Commission and Bank of America Corp. over bonuses paid by Merrill Lynch. U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff called the proposed consent judgment “inadequate.” Rakoff wrote in an opinion that the $33 million settlement was a “trivial penalty for a false statement that materially infected a multi-billion-dollar merger.” Rakoff set a Feb. 1 trial date for the case. The SEC had filed civil charges against Bank of America, saying it misled share-

holders about bonus payments given to Merrill Lynch employees. Last month, Rakoff ordered the SEC to explain why it didn’t pursue charges against specific executives at Bank of America over the accusations. Charlotte, N.C.-based Bank of America agreed to acquire Merrill in a shotgun deal a year ago at the height of the credit crisis. It was later revealed that Merrill, with the knowledge of Bank of America executives, accelerated $3.6 billion in bonus payments before the deal was closed on Jan. 1. Both Bank of America and the SEC did not provide immediate comment on the ruling.

Poll: Worries linger on economy

WASHINGTON (AP) – One year after Wall Street teetered on the brink of collapse, seven out of 10 Americans lack confidence the federal government has taken safeguards to prevent another financial industry meltdown, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll. Even more – 80 percent – rate the condition of the economy as poor and a majority worry about their own ability to make ends meet. The pessimistic outlook sets the stage

for President Barack Obama as he attempts to portray the financial sector as increasingly confident and stable and presses Congress to act on new banking regulations. The public sentiment also poses a challenge to central elements of Obama’s governing agenda. Half of those surveyed said deficit reduction should be a national priority over increased spending on health care, education or alternative energy.



Sprint affiliate sues over Virgin deal


The Eli Lilly and Co. headquarters is pictured in Indianapolis.

Lilly to cut 14 percent of staff NEW YORK (AP) – Seeking to cut costs and bring new drugs to market more quickly as its best-sellers go off-patent, drugmaker Eli Lilly & Co. said Monday it will eliminate 5,500 jobs over two years and reorganize into five business units. The Indianapolis company said it will reduce its work force by nearly 14 percent, to 35,000 from the current 40,500, by the end of 2011. The new total excludes hirings in highgrowth emerging markets and Japan.


Lilly hopes to cut annual costs by $1 billion per year over the same time, and will organize itself into the following units: cancer, diabetes, established markets, emerging markets, and Elanco, its animal health business. Key Lilly products like the anti-psychotic drug Zyprexa will lose patent protection starting in 2011, with three other drugs – antidepressant Cymbalta, Humalog insulin and cancer drug Gemzar – losing protection in 2013. CEO John Lechleiter

believes the company’s best path to profit growth involves focusing on its early and mid stage drug candidates. Lilly bought cancer drug maker ImClone Systems for $6 billion last year to acquire the cancer drug Erbitux and help balance the revenue it would lose when Zyprexa, Cymbalta, Humalog and Gemzar faced generic competition. The products were Lilly’s four best-sellers in 2008, with combined revenue of $10.85 billion – more than half the company’s total.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Sprint Nextel Corp. affiliate iPCS Inc. is asking an Illinois court to block the wireless provider’s planned acquisition of Virgin Mobile USA Inc. Three subsidiaries of Schaumburg, Ill.-based iPCS filed the lawsuit last week in the Circuit Court of Cook County, seeking an injunction to stop the $483 million deal. They claim it would violate an agreement by Sprint not to compete against iPCS within its territories. iPCS sells Sprintbranded products and services within a swath of the Midwest.

Natural gas prices jump 12 percent NEW YORK – Natural gas demonstrated again how much it has split from the direction of crude, as prices spiked more than 11 percent despite an enormous glut in supply. Crude prices fell for the second straight trading day. Analysts at Goldman Sachs said prices for natural gas may even triple over the winter, though most energy experts believe there is a far greater chance that prices will plunge again. The latter view would mean extremely cheap heating bills for a lot of people over the next few months. ENTERPRISE NEWS SERVICE REPORTS
