Hege decision



to come in November

Though still controversial, Hege has staunch supporters. 2A


LEXINGTON – Former Davidson County Sheriff Gerald Hege said he is “testing the waters” by placing “Vote for Hege” signs in front of Davidson County homes. During a brief interview with The High Point Enterprise at his Lexington home, Hege said an announcement about his possible candidacy for sheriff in 2010 will be made in November. Hege would not make any further comment on his potential candidacy. Signs supporting Hege’s bid for another term as sheriff recently have been popping up in Davidson County. Hege resigned as sheriff in 2004 and pleaded guilty to two felony counts of obstruction of justice


Gerald Hege relaxes during interview at his Lexington home Tuesday. for attempting to cover up money missing from the vice and narcotics unit of the sheriff’s department. The former sheriff, who was elected in 1994, ended his probation in May 2007. After finishing his probation and as a convicted felon, Hege could vote and also run for sheriff again. Under state and federal

law, Hege can not carry a gun even if he is re-elected to the post of sheriff because he is a convicted felon. Hege registered to vote as a Republican on Oct. 10, 2008. Last week, Davidson County Sheriff David Grice said he will run for sheriff in 2010, but would not comment on the potential can-

didacy of Hege. Grice has been in office since 2004 after being appointed by the Republican Party to fill Hege’s seat. He easily retained the office of sheriff in 2006 for a four-year term with a victory over Roy Holman. As sheriff of Davidson County, Hege, a Vietnam War veteran, was known for his controversial tactics. Painting the jail walls pink, he removed television sets and books from the county jail. Prisoners wore color-coordinated jumpsuits to identify their offense. Hege ordered all deputies to wear combat boots. Hege also appeared on “Larry King Live” and “America’s Most Wanted.” In addition, his personal patrol vehicle was a 1995 Chevrolet Impala, referred to as “The Spider Car,” with nitrous oxide tanks. | 888-3657

Queen said he had his license checked by Hege at one of the former sheriff’s checkpoints. Lexington resident Ralph Jackson said he doesn’t support Hege, but he believes the former sheriff will be re-elected.

“I believe he would get elected because there is too many people who like him in Lexington,” Jackson said. “I heard two years ago he was going to run.” Jackson said he is concerned about Hege not being able to carry a gun as sheriff of Davidson County. Under state and federal law, a convicted felon can’t carry a gun. “He is a crook,” Jackson alleged. “He has done what he did one time. He will do it again.”

Sonny Grooms, an Ellerbe resident, said he hopes Hege gets to be sheriff again. “I’d support him because he was doing good work, just like the soldier boots and all,” Grooms said. “The only thing I know, he was running the sheriff’s office like criminals needed to be handled. I know he enforced the laws. That was his job.” | 888-3657

on N.C. 62 but don’t know the history of it. Built in 1855, Dr. Thomas Winslow first lived at the house with his wife, Annie. The ownership over the house changed hands several times during its 150 years. The Trinity Museum, located at 7524 N.C. 62, was deeded by Ella Richardson, the last owner of the house, in 2003 to the Trinity Historic Preservation Society for the city to have a museum. With the help of volunteers, the Trinity Museum has been refurbished to show the history of Trin-

ity, which is known as the birthplace of Duke University. Several rooms are dedicated to different aspects of Trinity’s history. “It’s a real interesting building,” Johnson said of the Trinity Museum. In other business, the City Council decided to allocate $25,000 toward a preliminary engineering sewer study that may be conducted with the city of Archdale and Randolph County. The Archdale and Trinity city councils agreed in 2007 to participate financially in a similar study in an amount not to exceed $22,000. That study was to be funded jointly by Archdale, Trinity and Randolph County, as well as a $40,000 planning grant from the N.C. Rural Development Center. The grant application wasn’t approved and the effort was dropped. The Archdale City Council, however, recently allocated $25,000 toward the preliminary engineering study that would explore the idea of providing sewer service to the southeast of Trinity. The funding of the study also will need $25,000 from the Randolph County Board of Commissioners.

Sciatica is a compression of the sciatic nerve, usually by an L4 or L5 disc herniations.

The shells were fired after Biden arrived in Iraq on his third trip to the country this year. It was not clear where he was at the time.

BAGHDAD (AP) – The Iraqi reporter who threw his shoes at former President George W. Bush in protest was freed from prison on Tuesday and, unrepentant, he harshly condemned the U.S. presence in his country and accused authorities of torturing him. Muntadhar al-Zeidi’s stunning act of protest in December made him a hero for many in and outside Iraq. It struck a chord with millions in the Arab and Muslim worlds who have been captivated and angered by daily images of destruction and grieving since the U.S.led invasion of Iraq in 2003. But nine months later, there was little public outpouring of support for him, a sign of how things have changed. Since the incident, U.S. forces have pulled back from Iraq’s cities, significantly lowering the profile of the U.S. military ahead of a planned full withdrawal from the country.

Special forces targeted al-Qaida in Somalia

MOGADISHU, Somalia – The U.S. helicopters, guns blazing, swooped over a convoy carrying a top alQaida fugitive in rural southern Somalia.

U.S. military chief favors more troops in Afghanistan

NEW YORK – A Colorado man who’s the target of a terrorism probe that led to several police raids in New York City denies he did anything wrong. A law enforcement official told The Associated


Rep. Joe Wilson, R-S.C., speaks to reporters on Capitol Hill in Washington on Tuesday. The House voted to admonish Wilson over his “You lie� outburst to President Barack Obama during the president’s health care speech to Congress last week.

‘You lie’ outburst draws rebuke WASHINGTON (AP) – Bitterly divided along party lines, the House formally rebuked Republican Rep. Joe Wilson Tuesday for shouting “You lie� at President Barack Obama during last week’s nationally televised speech to Congress. The rare resolution of disapproval was pushed through by Democrats insisting that Wilson, a South Carolina lawmaker, had violated basic rules of decorum and civility in his outburst. Republicans dismissed the vote as a

GOP senator wants investigation of ACORN

WASHINGTON (AP) – A Republican lawmaker wants the Justice Department to investigate ACORN, a community organization under fire for several voter-registration fraud cases. Sen. Mike Johanns of Nebraska wrote Attorney General Eric Holder on Tuesday requesting the investigation. He cites reports that ACORN may “have been engaged in illegal activity� by aiding and abetting tax evasion, prostitution, human trafficking, fraud and

conspiracy. The Senate voted Monday to block the Housing and Urban Development Department from giving grants to ACORN. Johanns says the organization has received more than $50 million in taxpayer funds since 1994. Hidden-camera videos released by conservative activists posing as a prostitute and a pimp have shown ACORN employees giving advice on home buying and how to account on tax forms for the woman’s income.

political “witch hunt� and a waste of precious time and taxpayers’ money. Wilson had called the White House to apologize shortly after the incident, and he said at the time that the president “graciously accepted my apology and the issue is over.� Republicans agreed, but several Democrats pressed the issue. The final tally late Tuesday was 240-179, generally but not entirely along party lines. It was 233 Democrats and seven Republicans vot-

WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama’s top military adviser endorsed an increase in U.S. forces for the worsening war in Afghanistan on Tuesday, setting up a split with leading Democrats in Congress and complicating an already-tough decision for the president. Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said the war is growing more complicated and the enemy gaining in sophistication. Winning will require more resources from outside Afghanistan, including more troops, Mullen told Congress. “A properly resourced counterinsurgency probably means more forces, and without question, more time� and dedication, Mullen said. Gen. Stanley McChrystal, the U.S. commander in charge of both American and NATO forces in Afghanistan, delivered a grim assessment of the war to Washington last month and is expected to follow up soon with a request for thousands of additional troops and more equipment.

ARMSTRONG WILLIAMS: This ploy by Democrats is getting old. TOMORROW

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


They don’t have my best interests at heart

The other morning I woke up in a cold sweat from a nightmare, or should I say reality set in. My well-being as an American was in the hands of the following: President Obama from the state of Illinois (via Kenya or wherever). Dan Quayle, er, I mean Joe Biden from Delaware (both notorious for opening mouth and inserting foot). Nancy Pelosi from the state of California or more specifically the San Francisco Bay area. Ouch! Ted Kennedy, oops, sorry Teddy, don’t want to talk about the dead. Barney Frank from the state of Massachusetts. Christopher Dodd from the state of Connecticut. Representatives Schumer and Rangell and Clinton, from the state of New York. Oops, I’m sorry

Ask difficult questions and then vote.



New York, I don’t know where Billary is actually from. Arlen Specter from the state of Pennsylvania. I think he is from Pennsylvania. I would ask him, but I don’t think he knows who or what he is, or where he’s from. What worries me is that our aforementioned leaders are from heavily welfare and unionized states. How could they possibly know what is in my best interest? Do they really care? I have one question for all of our senators and representatives on the state and federal level: Why are they wanting this position? To make Americans safe and prosperous, or for their own personal gain (to make a living)? I look forward to their answers. I also urge my fellow Americans, when it comes time to vote, ask the difficult questions and vote with your brain. P.S. Those people under retire-

Tide rises for Uptowne revitalization


Michael B. Starn Publisher



Events such as Beach Music Blast will bring folks to the central city area.

Founded in 1885



f the crowd at the first session of the Ilderton’s High Point Beach Music Blast is any indication of how quickly Uptowne High Point can become a gathering place, it appears The City Project folks chose the right spot to open the door. The Beach Music Blast concert series, which began with Legends of the Beach Sept. 10 and will run 5:30-8:30 p.m. every Thursday through Oct. 1 at 1525 N. Main St. in Uptowne High Point, is The City Project’s first attempt to (1) get people involved and (2) give them some tangible idea of what kind of a draw can be sustained and grown as that neighborhood is revitalized. The Part Time Party Time Band performs this Thursday, Band of Oz on Sept. 25 and The Embers on Oct. 1. Tickets to what formerly was the parking lot of the Armadillo Grill restaurant are $5 per person and free parking is available nearby. Uptowne High Point primarily is the N. Main Street corridor running from Ray Avenue on the south to State Street on the north. Uptowne, which includes the area along W. Lexington Avenue to Long Street and along E. Lexington to Johnson Street contains some 200 businesses that form the base from which the mixed use neighborhood concept can bloom. We (and many others) have commented through the years that High Point has needed more of such activities and events to draw people back to the city’s central downtown area, or as is the case now, Uptowne High Point. This series of concerts is just a start, but it can be the beginning of the remaking of High Point’s central city area. Give the Beach Music Blast a try and get a feel for what The City Project can produce.

Music gets school year started with good vibes




North Carolina officials took innocence of inmate seriously From Rocky Mount Telegram, Sept. 9


he only thing worse than a loose criminal suspect is an imprisoned innocent person. When someone is wrongfully convicted and put behind bars, it can steal years from that person’s life – even while the real offender may still be free. DNA evidence has gone a long way toward righting such injustices. Seven wrongly convicted prisoners in North Carolina have been set free by such evidence, the latest being Joseph Abbitt, whose conviction of rape charges was overturned recently in Forsyth County. Abbitt had served 14 years on

charges that he raped two teenage sisters. The N.C. Center for Actual Innocence, a nonprofit group that helps inmates who say they have been wrongly convicted, aided Abbitt’s cause. A court ruled recently that DNA evidence proved Abbitt could not have been the assailant. Wrongful convictions can happen under the most innocent of circumstances. Witnesses may genuinely believe they have identified the right suspects. Circumstantial evidence may sway juries to reasonable conclusions – even if those conclusions later are proved to be mistaken. North Carolina is moving slowly toward making sure

criminal acts aren’t compounded by wrongful imprisonments. The N.C. Center for Actual Innocence has rejected more than half of the requests it has received for additional investigation – largely because reviews in many cases aren’t warranted. In the circumstances of Abbitt, however, the center’s involvement led to the release of an innocent man. That’s the kind of justice that should prevail in every state. Thank goodness North Carolina takes such matters seriously.

his year at High Point Central High School, something can be heard blaring through the halls that you might not find at every school: music. Between classes, students are treated to the musical styling of various artists: Wild Cherry and the Trammps, to name a few. However, it was the artist who was chosen to dominate the halls the first week back to school who really got me thinking: the late, great Michael Jackson. Music is an inevitable part of every high school student’s culture. Central has students for every kind of music. There are showtunes lovers, obscure-songs whizzes and budding poets who stroll down the hallway making up raps on the spot for everyone to hear. Music at my school comes in dozens of languages and sprouts from even more cultures. Some students speed out of the parking lot listening to music cranked up so loud it’s a wonder they haven’t already gone deaf, while some softly hum their favorite artist on the way to lunch. There are the groups of friends who sing their favorite songs together, and then there are groups of friends who create a giggling cacophony as they try to out-sing each other with 20 different songs at once. Teachers take part in keeping the beat going almost as much as students. Many attempt to incorporate music into their lesson plan. Productive teachers play classical music to help their students concentrate on their work. Relaxed teachers occasionally allow students to play their own music for each other, interested in “what the kids are listening to now-a-days.” Perky teachers find goofy yet catchy songs pertaining to their subjects which students inevitably end up humming as a memory aid on test day. Yet in watching the teachers and my fellow students sing and dance along to Mi-

Despite all the differTEEN VIEW ences in personalities at Leslie Ann Central that Blake are brought ■■■ out by music, the most melodious part is the way it all blends together. Anyone can make the claim that Michael Jackson affected his or her culture, because his music is literally universal. He reminded me that it doesn’t matter what we listen to. One person’s music is not better than another’s. It’s all music. Since the first week, we have heard – and in the weeks to come we will hear – the repertoire of many other artists during class changes. Each of these artists will appeal to certain audiences within the school while being entirely unappealing to others. Whether or not I enjoy what is chosen in the future, I won’t soon forget the valuable lesson I learned on the

We may not always agree: in music, in politics, in religion, in interests or in life goals.

Massachusetts AG favors change in Senate succession law BOSTON (AP) – Massachusetts legislators could vote as early as this week on changing the state’s Senate succession law so the governor has free reign to temporarily fill vacancies like the one created last month with the death of Sen. Edward M. Kennedy. Attorney General Martha Coakley, the most prominent Democrat to declare candidacy in the special election campaign to fill his seat permanently, said Tuesday she supports the idea after previously dodging questions on the topic. The switch is noteworthy because her campaign’s finance chairman is Senate President Therese Murray, who has hedged on the change but holds sway over her fellow Democrats in the Legislature’s upper chamber. “I think there are reasons for having two senators (from Massachusetts) in the interim,� Coakley said. “We’ve heard all the great stories about all the constituent work that Sen.

Secret of success Baseball great Cal Ripken Jr. shares life’s lessons at dedication BY VICKI KNOPFLER ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – Baseball Hall of Famer Cal Ripken Jr. spoke of traits that led to his career and personal success Tuesday night at High Point University as part of events surrounding the opening of the Nido R. Qubein School of Communication. Ripken drew from his book, “Get in the Game: 8 Elements of Perseverance That Make the Difference.” His book developed from questions he traditionally received about his many accomplishments, specifically playing 2,632 consecutive games to break Lou

Gehrig’s record. “So everybody thought I had a secret, but I didn’t have a clue,” he said. Ripken traditionally gave same-old, same-old answers until he was asked by Derek Jeter, another great shortstop, how he played 16-17 years without missing a game. Jeter looked disappointed at Ripken’s pat answer, which inspired Ripken to analyze his success. He was given a push when he later was asked what traits helped him break the record, and that put the issue in a different context for him, and he developed his analysis into a book. Ripken isolated eight traits: right approach, will to succeed, passion, love of competition, consistency,

conviction, strength and life management. He illustrated each with stories, sometimes humorous, from his long and storied career in baseball. Some of the stories involved his father, Cal Ripken Sr., a famous coach and manager, his mother and the debt Ripken owed both. In teaching her sons the difference between goodstubborn and bad-stubborn and the gray areas between, Ripken’s mother used Ripkin Sr. as an example. Once, Ripkin Sr. sat up four nights with a shotgun trying to shoot the groundhog that was raiding his vegetable garden. The Ripkens lived in a neighborhood – not out in the country – then. “That was ‘stupid-stubborn.’ My mother invented the term,” he said. One of Ripken’s secrets was his reliance on a quote by Theodore Roosevelt he carried in his briefcase: “Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glori-

Laura Jones, a senior at Sweet Briar College who grew up in High Point, was a summer intern with the Special Olympics of Virginia.

A positive sign Exhibitors say Pre-market met their expectations BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT - Before exhibitors locked up their showrooms and scattered to various parts of the world at the end of Pre-market on Tuesday, most left with a smile on their face. “We’ve had great response,” said Dan Angus, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Ligo, which has a showroom on S. Main Street. “The number of people has been better than last spring.” The High Point Market Authority touted a slightly larger Pre-market, with 144 secured buyers representing 69 retail organizations, when the event was in planning. Kevin O’Connor, chairman

of the board for the authority and president of Samson Marketing, said it’s likely that additional attendees came at the last minute. “We are very pleased, and we had a great turnout,” O’Connor said. “I think people have been thrilled with the opportunity to visit us.” Angus said a recent uptick in retail sales gave exhibitors and buyers a positive outlook for the event. “The attitude of the people here has been much better because there has been a slight spark in retail,” he said. “If you’ve got some positives, it really is a benefit to the whole situation. In general, it’s been an up note.” Greg Noe, president of Samuel Lawrence Furni-

ture, said the event met the company’s expectations. “Traffic seemed about the same as last Pre-market, but we saw a lot of major manufacturers here, so there were no disappointments,” Noe said. “The reception we got on our new merchandise was enough that we are going to go ahead and produce it (for the fall High Point Market),” he said. Some showrooms said they saw buyers attend to business at Pre-market, then fly out to the Las Vegas Furniture Market, which runs until Thursday. Other exhibitors, including W. Schillig, said the fall Pre-market had been one of the best in recent years.

TRIAD — It’s time to start thinking about getting a flu shot. Even people who have already had flu or flu-like symptoms should get vaccinated, according to experts. With H1N1 flu spreading through schools and colleges, some CVS Caremark Corp., Walgreen Co. and Rite Aid Corp. are giving flu shots earlier this year, according to The Associated Press. “Even people who have been told they had the flu should get the shots,” Dr. Ward Robinson, Guilford County medical director, told the Guilford County Board of Education last week. “There has been some confusion about that.” The health department will take appointments Sept. 24 for seasonal influenza vaccinations. No applications are necessary. The health department shots will cost $25, the same price many store clinics charge. The state has shipped 76,000 doses of the seasonal flu vaccine to health departments, hospitals and doctors offices. CVS Caremark earlier announced it will offer flu shots three or four weeks earlier at most locations. The pharmacy also said that it will offer 100,000 free seasonal flu shots to job seekers. Walgreens has most of the area clinics through September, according to the American Lung Association’s “Find a Flu Shot” Web site. Meanwhile, another vaccine is being developed and tested for the H1N1 virus. The new swine flu vaccine is expected to arrive by mid-October. The latest research shows that only one shot may be necessary. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends the flu vaccine for children, the elderly, caregivers, pregnant women and people with weak immune systems or other chronic health problems.

Barbara S. Hollingsworth

Jeanette McMahan

GREENSBORO – Barbara Stancil Hollingsworth of Greensboro passed away at her home on Monday, September 14, 2009, after a very courageous twoyear battle with cancer. A memorial service will be held at Forbis & Dick Guilford Chapel Guilford Chapel, 5926 W. Friendly Ave., on Friday at 2:00 p.m. with Reverend Bill Marsh presiding. Barbara was born in Liberty, SC in 1939 and moved to High Point, NC with her father in 1951. She attended Jamestown High School and later after raising two children and becoming a grandmother, she received a BS Degree from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Barbara is survived by Tom, her husband of 51 years; daughter Lynne Hollingsworth and her 3 children, Jenny, Lauren, and Christina Manship; her daughter Karen Hollingsworth Baleno and her husband Joe and their 3 children, Ashley, Joey, and Katie; by Barbara’s mother-in-law, Jamesina Hollingsworth all of Greensboro, and her sister-in-law Judy Kemmer of Oak Island, NC. It goes without saying that life in the Hollingsworth family will not be the same without Barbara. Barbara’s single most important goal in life seemed to be in assisting her daughters and grandchildren to get everything good that life had to offer, from kindergarten through college and from summers at the pool, evenings at dance or band recitals and plays, to festive celebrations at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Barbara activities at Christ Community Church have been very comforting to her especially in the last couple of years as she fought her long battle with cancer. Her family extends a sincere thanks to her many friends there and especially to the wonderful ladies in her Bible study group. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials to Christ Community Church, 369 Air Harbor Rd, or to Hospice and Palliative Care of Greensboro, 2500 Summit Ave. It would be wrong to close this article without thanking all the dedicated people at both the Moses Cone Regional Cancer Center and the Wake Forest University Cancer Center for helping our family to share Barbara’s warmth for just a little longer in our lives. The family will receive friends at Forbis & Dick Guilford Chapel, 5926 W. Friendly Ave., on Thursday from 7:00 until 8:30 p.m. Condolences may be offered at

Former White House press secretary Jody Powell speaks at a news conference in Milwaukee.

Former Carter spokesman Jody Powell dies at 65 WASHINGTON (AP) – Jody Powell, who was White House press secretary and among the closest and most trusted advisers to President Jimmy Carter, died Monday of a heart attack. He was 65. Powell, a member of the so-called Georgia Mafia that descended on Washington after Carter was elected president, was stricken at his home near Cambridge on Maryland’s eastern shore, said Jack Nelson, a retired reporter and close friend of Powell. Nelson said Powell had been working with firewood with a helper who briefly stepped away. Powell was discovered a short time later on the ground. Powell was said to have had a previous heart attack, but that it was some time ago in the early or mid-1990s. Powell, who first worked with Carter during his campaign for governor in Georgia the 1960s, joined Carter’s presidential campaign in 1976 and served as chief White House spokesman from 1977 to 1981.

Doctor faces murder charge in fatal wreck

RALEIGH (AP) – A North Carolina doctor has been charged with second-degree murder after police say he caused a wreck that killed a 20-year-old ballerina. Multiple media outlets reported Tuesday that Raymond Dwight Cook of Raleigh surren-

dered his medical license before appearing in a Wake County courtroom for a hearing in connection with death of Elena Bright Shapiro. Cook’s vehicle struck the back of Shapiro’s car Friday night after he was traveling 85 miles per hour in a 45 zone. The ballerina trainee

from Winston-Salem later died of her injuries. Cook’s bond was set at $250,000 on Tuesday. He has agreed to enter a substance abuse treatment program. A message left for Cook’s attorney was not immediately returned Tuesday.

Secret to fine conversation is to let someone else talk


ear Abby: I am a male in my early 20s and lucky to have several good friends and acquaintances. I’m invited to gatherings and parties pretty regularly. I have no problem relating to people I know well. But when I have to converse with people I don’t know – the “friends of friends” – I feel uncomfortable. It’s not that I am particularly shy. It’s that I stumble and become tongue-tied when I try to talk to someone I don’t know very well. The conversation lags, and I think the other person ends up feeling as uneasy as I do. In the scheme of things, I realize this is not like some of the other serious issues I see in your column, but I believe you have mentioned becoming better in social situations before. I don’t want to come across as stuck up or unfriendly, and I’m afraid that’s what might be happening. Can you help? – Dialogue-Deficient in St. Paul

Dear Dialogue-Deficient: The phrase “seek and ye shall find” is one I

heard years ago. It stuck in my memory because it can be applied to so many different ADVICE things. It applies Dear in your Abby situation ■■■ because, believe it or not, when it comes to making conversation, being a good listener will do more for you than being a good talker. If you want to make a hit with people, show an interest by asking them questions about themselves. People enjoy talking about themselves and what they’re into. Give them a chance, and they’ll think you’re a great conversationalist. Just remember to be tactful, discreet and not too personal. Example: Do not ask someone you’ve just met how much he or she paid for something, or whether the person always drinks as much as it appears he or she has that evening. Be generous with compliments, but be sure they’re sincere.

Most people can spot a brown-noser within five minutes. Stay informed about current events. The more you know about what’s going on in the world, the better company you’ll be. Read the news and editorials and – of course – Dear Abby. Before I finish with this subject, a word of warning: Don’t be a know-itall. People who come on like they’re an authority on everything are about as welcome as a skunk at a garden party. They make those of us who are just average feel insecure and uncomfortable. And when you talk to someone, look that person in the eye. If you’re constantly looking over his or her shoulder, the person will think you’re looking for other company. This happened to me when I was introduced to a man who was running for office, and needless to say, the man didn’t get my vote. DEAR ABBY is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Answer: Assuming that you have tropical hibiscus plants, it is a good idea to spray the plants with a general purpose insecticide at least twice before moving them into the house. Another option is to use a systemic pesticide on your plants (i.e. use Bayer 3-in-1 Insect, Disease, and Mite Control. It contains imidacloprid, a systemic insecticide), which will help control any insects that might travel in. When using pesticides, be sure to read and follow the label instructions. Many people with houseplants move some of them outside for the summer to give them better growing conditions and help them recover from the stress of an indoor environment. However, as fall approaches and night temperatures approach 50 degrees, it is time to think about bringing these plants inside for the winter. Houseplants that have been kept outdoors are accustomed to receiving much more sunlight than they do in an indoor environment. Research done in Florida in the late 1970s revealed that tropical plants grown under high light conditions produce “sun leaves,” while those grown under low light conditions have “shade leaves.” These leaf types differ structurally in that sun leaves have less chlorophyll (the substance that plants use to convert sunlight to energy), and the chlorophyll that is present is located deeper inside the leaf. Sun leaves also tend to be thick, small, and numerous while shade leaves are thinner, larger, and fewer in number. When plants are moved from one light condition to another, they need time to adjust. This process is

known as “acclimatization.” If they are forced to acclimatize too quickly, they will drop their sun leaves and produce a new set of shade leaves. If the acclimatization process is slower and less drastic, the plant can convert its sun leaves to the shade leaves that do better under low light. If going from shade to sun, this process is reversed. So how do we help houseplants acclimatize to the lower light levels inside? Houseplants brought in from outside should be started out in an area of the home that receives plenty of light, and then gradually moved to their permanent, darker location. This process should take four to eight weeks depending on the degree of difference in light levels between the initial and final location of the plant. Acclimatization gives houseplants a greater chance of retaining leaves and avoiding the stress of completely replacing them. It is important to spray foliage and container with any insecticidal soap to eliminate any pests. These plants have been exposed to a lot of insects while outside. No need bringing any in.

Hand-reared from infancy, Kendall, the zoo’s newest chimp, faces many changes as he becomes a functioning member of the troop.

Former show-biz chimp adjusts to life at the zoo T

he arrival at the North Carolina Zoo in 2007 of the chimp Kendall again brought attention to the problems that often occur when individuals own and care for exotic pets. Born in the spring of 1999 at a facility that breeds animals to be used in the entertainment industry, Kendall was hand-raised from infancy by people who later sold him to an organization that trains animals for use in animal shows, movies and television. Already an entertainer by age 4, Kendall became famous as the chimp that selected the winning number for Pepsi’s Billion Dollar Sweepstakes. He even appeared on Oprah Winfrey’s show. Within another three years, Kendall’s trainers noticed that he was beginning to challenge them when they took him to shows to perform. Pound for pound, a chimp is about seven times stronger than a human, and Kendall’s trainers quickly realized that, at 60 pounds, Kendall could seriously injure them or members of an audience. Kendall was soon retired from show business. Like many other “show� animals that, because of age or audiencetrainer safety issues, no

longer perform, he was relegated to spending most of the time in a small, ZOO TALES solitary holding Tom area with Gillespie little stimu■■■ lation. Unlike some animals that are seriously neglected after retiring from show business, Kendall was treated as well as possible by his trainers. But with other animals to care for and a busy show schedule, the trainers could spend less and less time with him, and his care began to wane. Kendall’s luck improved in 2006. His situation was brought to the attention of members of the Chimpanzee Species Survival Plan (SSP), a science and conservation program of the Association of Zoos & Aquariums that promotes the well-being of captive animals. Members of the Chimpanzee SSP arranged to place Kendall at the N.C. Zoo. But even though he was now in a situation that would enable him to be with other chimps in a more natural setting than he had ever had in his life, there were no guarantees that he would successfully

integrate into the zoo’s troop of 12 other chimps. Only now, more than two years after his arrival, do keepers feel comfortable integrating him daily with some of the other members of the troop. Like a child who has lived out of mainstream society for most of his or her life, Kendall has almost no knowledge of how to deal with the social problems in his new environment, particularly the natural aggression that chimps normally display towards newcomers to their troop. Considering how many animals in show business are treated, Kendall came from a decent situation with trainers who treated him well with a decent diet and regular veterinary visits. But this is far from the treatment that many “show� animals must endure. In 2002, the N.C. Zoo received two polar bears, part of a group of seven that were confiscated by U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (USF&WS) agents from a circus that toured the Caribbean. Once in Puerto Rico, where the agents had jurisdiction, they confiscated the animals because of the circus’ gross violations of minimal-care standards. In a similar situation, the zoo received two black bears that were

again taken by USF&WS agents from a roadside menagerie where the bears were living in a cage measuring about 20 square feet. It’s seldom that institutions like the N.C. Zoo can take in confiscated animals – especially those as large as bears. These were lucky. Too often, “show� animals have to exist in horrible living conditions such as cramped cages; exist on inadequate, unhealthy diets; receive little or no medical care; and be “trained� using shock collars and other inhumane devices. Even under ideal conditions, “show� animals that have been rescued have spent most of their lives living with humans and have little or no idea how to live around other animals of their species. Keepers hope that Kendall’s story will help educate the public about the problems facing primates in the entertainment industry and about the need for legislation to help them.

RCC nursing class achieves success ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

ASHEBORO – The associate degree nursing class at Randolph Community College has something to be proud of. The class recently completed its NCLEX-RN state board exams with a 100 percent pass rate. The news was announced recently during a surprise luncheon for first-year ADN students getting ready to advance to the second level of the program. “This is an incredible achievement, made even more incredible by how far they have come in such a short time,� said RCC President Robert Shackleford. “In the past couple of years, we have changed the admissions procedure, added an entrance exam, changed the teaching methodologies, received exceptional training for both our students and our faculty from a highly renowned consultant, made student success a specific goal for students as well as faculty, and many other significant changes. As a result, our student

NCLEX board exam scores have made a very impressive improvement.� In 2006, the pass rate was 71 percent, moving up to 88 percent in 2007 and 95 percent in 2008. The recent nursing luncheon was held so the firstyear instructor could say goodbye to the students, who began their second level nursing classes Aug. 17. Shackleford was a special guest speaker for the 25 associate degree nursing students. He gave a motivational talk after congratulating the students on their accomplishment. A special diamond-shaped plaque was presented to Christine Myers, past department chairperson for health

occupations, for her leadership role in pushing the program to a higher standard. Other special guests included Tremonteo Crawford, chief nursing officer at Randolph Hospital; George and Kathleen Banks, CEO and COO of Monolia’s Healthcare Inc.; Joyce McCarter, Ardys Mag-

ic International; Amy Ange, coordinator/instructor of RCC’s Nursing Assistant program; and Marlana Hancock, current chairperson of the Health Sciences and Public Service Division at RCC. Cieanna Hairston, ADN instructor, helped organize the luncheon.

Inflammation makes finger snap like a trigger


ear Dr. Donohue: I would like some information about a condition called trigger finger. About nine years after my retirement, at age 73, I had three trigger finger operations – left middle, left ring and right middle fingers. Generally, my health is good. I take no medicines. What causes trigger finger, and is it possible to prevent it? – S.K.


We’re able to bend fingers because tendons run from the forearm muscles through the palm to the fingers. A protective sheath surrounds those long tendons. When the sheath or the tendon to a finger becomes inflamed, a nodule forms. The inflammation and nodule trap the tendon when the finger is in the bent position. Motion hurts, and the finger stays bent. Pushing the finger straightens it. A snapping noise occurs when that happens, and it sounds like the noise made by a gun’s trigger. Any finger can become a trigger finger, but the middle finger, the ring finger and the thumb are the ones most often involved. Trigger finger can come with overuse. Diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis lead to it. In many, a cause cannot be found. Early in the condition, a splint worn on the finger during sleep rests the tendon, calms inflammation and halts the progress of trigger















finger. A cortisone injection around the tendon and sheath greatly reduces HEALTH inflammation. If Dr. Paul the pain is Donohue intolerable ■■■ or if the finger remains bent, surgery frees the finger and cures the condition. Dear Dr. Donohue: In the early 1930s, the doctor recommended that my father, my two younger brothers and I have our tonsils removed. He said they were of no value and would cause problems. I think the adenoids were removed too. I don’t believe any body part has no function. What is the function of tonsils and adenoids? What happens when they’re removed? Could their absence cause difficulty in swallowing, which I now have? I am 86. – L.J. Tonsils and adenoids have the same tissue and cells that lymph nodes have. They serve a similar purpose. They filter out germs, and they make antibodies that are ammunition against invading germs. At one time, it was fashionable to remove them. The belief was that removal prevented infections like scarlet fever and strep throat. This was at a time before there were antibiotics. People do OK

without them, but now they’re removed only if they are repeatedly infected or are so large that they obstruct air flow into the lungs. Absence of tonsils and adenoids does not interfere with swallowing. Trouble swallowing can come from weakness of the swallowing muscles, nerve dysfunction, pouches in the throat, tumors or esophageal problems. It’s a serious sign, and you should tell your doctor that you have it. Dear Dr. Donohue: I am a 56-year-old woman. I read about a device called a vaginal ring that alleviates a dry vagina. Is it safe? – F.R. You’re referring to silicone rings with an estrogen core that are inserted into the vagina and stay there for three months. The rings release a small amount of estrogen daily. They ease the drying and shrinkage of vaginal tissues that occur after menopause and lead to itching and painful intercourse. Two brand names are Femring and Estring. They work. They carry the same warnings that all estrogen products carry after menopause – a slight increase in the risk of breast and uterine cancer, as well as a slight increase in strokes, heart attacks and blood clots. The amount of estrogen released is small, and the chances of such side effects are equally small.

West calls Taylor Swift to offer apology

‘The View’ pays tribute to Swayze LOS ANGELES (AP) – Whoopi Goldberg and her co-hosts on “The View” paid tribute to Patrick Swayze on Tuesday, with his “Ghost” co-star choking back tears as she remembered him fondly as a brave fighter and a gracious colleague. Swayze died Monday evening, surrounded by family at his Los Angeles ranch, after a 20-month fight with pancreatic cancer. He was 57.

Fleiss gets probation in drug case

LAS VEGAS (AP) – Former “Hollywood Madam” Heidi Fleiss was sentenced Tuesday to three years probation on felony drug charges stemming from her arrest in the rural Nevada town where she lives, her lawyer said.

Nye County District Court Judge John Davis in Pahrump followed terms of Fleiss’ July 7 guilty plea to unlawful use of methamphetamine and possession of the painkiller hydrocodone without a prescription, attorney Robert Hill said.

“ T h i s was a wellfought battle. Patrick fought like the dickens to survive Swayze it, or to get through it. He never thought of himself as someone who was dying,” Goldberg said Tuesday on the ABC morning talk show. “He said, ‘You know, we’re all dying.’ And so his attitude

was, ‘Until it kills me, I’m going to keep doing what I’m doing. ... “He worked, he did his show, he just was a cat that never gave up,” she added. “I would like to be able to be that. I would like to have that bravery.” Co-host Barbara Walters shared her own anecdotes of her time with Swayze, whom she interviewed alongside his wife, Lisa, at their ranch in January. “I had the, I guess the

NEW YORK (AP) – It looks like Kanye West has finally given a pers o n a l apology to Taylor Swift. R e p resentatives from “The Swift View” say West called the country sensation after her appearance on Tuesday’s show. During the broadcast, the 19-yearold singer said West had yet to contact her to apologize for hijacking her acceptance speech on the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday. “He has not personally reached out or anything but if he wanted to say hi (I would),” said Swift. After Swift’s comments, West called her and the two spoke, according to a statement from “The View.” Afterward, Swift told ABC News Radio: “He was very sincere in his apology and I accepted that apology.”

Whole-grain pasta is getting easier to love BY JIM ROMANOFF FOR THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


ot so long ago, whole-wheat pasta tasted too much like the boxes it came in. Much has changed. At many grocers, the whole-wheat or multigrain pasta selection can take up more than a quarter of the section, and the quality and taste have improved considerably. This is good news because whole-grain pastas, compared to their white-flour equivalents, are a much better source of the fiber and nutrients that get stripped away when grains are refined. If you have a hard time switching from your favorite refined pastas, experiment with brands until you find one that has a satisfactorily mild flavor. Or transition by mixing half whole-grain and half refined pastas when preparing your favorite dishes. Of course, the flavors of some dishes are specifically created for whole-grain flavors, such as bigoli (a traditional Italian buckwheat pasta) with caramelized onions and anchovies. The key to such dishes is the bold flavors that are brought in to match the assertiveness of the whole-grain pasta. The following recipe is another example of this kind of flavor pairing. Healthy, low-in-fat shrimp, acidic tomatoes, pungent garlic, oregano and salty olives and feta cheese balance out whole-grain linguine. To complete the meal, serve with a salad of romaine lettuce dressed with a lemon juice and olive oil vinaigrette.


Bold flavors and healthy whole-grains combine in this Whole-Grain Pasta with Shrimp, Tomatoes and Feta Cheese. Once shunned, whole-grain pasta’s taste has come a long way and now occupies a large portion of the pasta aisle.

Whole-Grain Pasta with Shrimp, Tomatoes and Feta Cheese Start to finish: 50 minutes (30 minutes active) Servings: 6 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil 1 medium yellow onion, chopped 1 tablespoon finely chopped garlic 28-ounce can whole tomatoes, chopped, with 2⁄3 cup of the juice reserved 1 ⁄2 cup dry white wine 3 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley, divided 1 ⁄2 teaspoon dried oregano 1 pound medium raw shrimp, peeled and deveined 12 black olives, coarsely

chopped 1 ⁄2 teaspoon grated lemon zest 1 ⁄4 teaspoon salt Ground black pepper, to taste 1 pound whole-grain linguine 1 ⁄2 cup crumbled feta cheese In a large saucepan over medium, heat the oil. Add the onion and saute until it begins to color, about 4 minutes. Add the garlic and stir for 30 seconds more. Add the tomatoes with reserved juice, wine, 2 tablespoons of the parsley and the oregano. Bring to a simmer. Cook over low, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. While the water heats, add the


Cypraea spadicea

shrimp, olives and lemon zest to the tomato sauce and simmer until the shrimp are opaque at the center, about 3 to 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Cook the linguine according to package directions. Drain and serve topped with the sauce and sprinkled with the feta cheese and the remaining 1 tablespoon of chopped parsley.

“Ever since God created the world His power and deity, however invisible, have been there for the mind to see in the things He has made.” – Romans 1:21 (JB) Name: Cypraea spadicea Shell family: Cypraeidae Describer and date: Swainson, 1823 Harvested: California Longest dimension: 1¾ inches Shell “type”: Cowrie Gastropod Points of interest: Cowrie shells are eagerly sought by collectors for their shiny surfaces, vibrant colors, and large number of

species. The first photo above illustrates a nice example as well as one of the problems presented by these shells. When collected live (the much-preferred approach for acquiring beautiful specimens), someone must remove the mollusc from the shell. As is obvious from the view that shows the opening, that opening is quite narrow, making thorough shell cleaning very difficult or even impossible. Imagine trying to clean hundreds of these shells. Read on for a fascinating solution. Name: Conus textile Shell family: Conidae

Describer and date: Linne, 1758 Harvested: New Caledonia Longest dimension: 1½ inches Shell “type”: Cone Gastropod Points of interest: Cone shells are popular for many of the very same reasons as Cowries. The second photo is of an especially beautifully marked Cone. Dealers and collectors have learned to make use of an instinct of one to ease the work required for the other. Cone molluscs are carnivorous. If living Cowrie and Cone shells are placed in a salt water tank together, nature takes over. The Cowries quickly sense the presence of the Cones and retreat


to the corners of the tank. The Cones just as quickly realize the presence of the Cowries and soon chase them down. Their soft body parts are easily able to enter thru the narrow aperture and totally devour the inhabitant. Without harming the Cowrie shell in any way, man’s work is made easy. Interested readers can view The High Point Enterprise online at to share thoughts, review basic information about shells (Seashell 101”), and find Internet and library sources for learning more. – Bill Michal Special to the Enterprise

“I’m fed up with having bad partners,” Cy the Cynic complained to me. “I’m looking for a partner who is a ‘10.’ ” “Good luck,” I said. “For every partner who’s a 10, you’ll find 10 who are ones.” Cy had been West in today’s deal and was upset about East’s defense. When Cy led the king of hearts against South’s four spades, East signaled with the deuce. “I thought he wanted a shift – obviously to diamonds,” Cy said. “But declarer took the ace of diamonds and led a trump. My partner won, cashed the ace of hearts and led a diamond. South took the king, drew trumps and claimed.”



You hold: S K J 8 5 H 7 3 D A J C A K J 9 4. You open one club, your partner bids one spade and the next player jumps to three hearts (preemptive). What do you say?

“The contract ought to fail,” I observed. “Exactly,” the Cynic grumbled, “but my partners are one with the universe – on a scale of one to 10.” A capable East would take charge of the defense. East should overtake the first heart with the ace and lead his singleton club. He wins the first trump lead, puts Cy in with the queen of hearts and ruffs the club return for down one.

ANSWER: The preempt forces you to take an aggressive view. You would be obliged to show your good spade support even if your values were closer to a minimum; you would bid three spades with K J 8 5, 7 3, Q 5, A K J 9 4. With your actual hand, take the pressure off partner by bidding four spades. North dealer Both sides 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.

My kids aren’t me, in spite of sharing DNA I

think the hardest lesson for me in becoming a parent was learning to let go of my expectations for my sons. OK, I’ll be completely honest; I’ve only partially been able to let go of them. I think it’s impossible not to have some wishes for our kids, but the focus here is really on how we have specific things we hope they’ll like or do that often mirror our own interests or fantasies. When I was a member of the Big Brother organization it had the unexpected effect of turning out to be a parenting prep course. The “Little” (the term for the kid you are matched with) I had was a young 8-year-old girl who totally didn’t like doing anything physical. This was before I was married, let alone before I became a parent. In those days, they matched girls with Big Brothers, something that is all too rare today, due to fears enhanced by the media and the exaggeration of sexual harassment. Another topic for another column, for sure, as the little girls without fathers need the “Bigs” just as much as the little boys do, so this is a terrible loss for them. My image of parenting or being a Big Brother, at that time, was going to the park with my kid and playing ball. The memories of playing catch with my late father are among the few strong memories of my youth. He was a workaholic, by necessity, and I saw way too little of him, although I knew that he loved and cared for me. So, the occasions when we’d do things together stood out as

special, and I expected and hoped to do the same with my “Little” as well as my future children. Because she was uninterested in anything physical, I had to be creative in finding outA DAD’S ings for us to do and find things we’d enjoy doing POINT together. As luck would OF VIEW have it, when I did become a parent, neither of Bruce my sons was athletic or Sallan interested in doing much ■■■ physical activity either. At first, this was a disappointment until I reflected on my relationship with my “Little” and realized, as demoralizing as it may have been, that my kids aren’t me. What a shock. They might have interests and desires of their own. Even as young kids they exhibited strong desires that were often at odds with my hopes and expectations for them. The vanity that we, as parents, often feel about our kids is really expressed in these sorts of interests. When your child does do the sports you do, listens to the music you like, and enjoys the foods, movies and restaurants you do, let’s face the fact that it feeds your ego and is gratifying. But, that isn’t what parenting is about. It’s about allowing your children to discover their own passions rather than mimicking yours. If you’re fortunate enough to have children that

enjoy things you do, then count yourself among the lucky few. But, your job as a parent is not to make a clone of yourself. I think where it matters, about shared interests, is with our choice of a spouse. I made the mistake of allowing my panic over not being married in my late thirties and my fervent desire to have children, to overlook the obvious differences between my first wife and me. I rationalized our different backgrounds and different interests away, in the name of love. It didn’t work. There’s a wonderful French movie from the 1970s, which I think tells the simplest and most basic lesson about choosing a spouse. It’s called “And Now My Love” and was directed by the great Claude LeLouch. Given the tenor of those times and the confidence – one could say conceit – of French cinema, only a French director would have taken on the concept of this movie – love at first sight. The entire movie is a tease in which our two protagonists, who we come to learn are made for each other, keep on just missing meeting each other. The scene that relates most to my assertion that shared interests are needed takes place early in the film, when the male protagonist is taken to prison. He is led to a cell where there’s another prisoner who is making coffee. An older man, he looks up and asks his new cellmate if he’d like to have some coffee, and when the answer

is “yes,” he asks how many lumps of sugar he takes (back in the days when there were “lumps of sugar”) to which the answer is “three.” The older man looks up, surprised at that high number, and casually replies, “When you meet a woman who also takes three lumps of sugar, marry her.” The young man is startled and asks why, to which the older man again, calmly replies, “because at least you’ll have one thing in common.” The rest of the movie, which I won’t ruin for you, has him checking with the various women he meets whether they take three lumps of sugar or not. The lesson is simple: having a base of commonality is a key ingredient to the success of a (romantic) relationship. But that has nothing to do with your kids. They aren’t you, and other than sharing the same DNA, they are totally unique individuals. So, if they stray away from the paths you want for them, let it go and support their passions. It’s the passions that dictate our eventual success and life satisfaction. As for choosing a mate, think about the three lumps of sugar.

The new black at N.Y. Fashion Week? Black, of course



Model wears spring 2010 collection of Jill Stuart during New York Fashion Week. The ravens rose at Rodarte. With a smokefilled runway beneath them, models wore outfits resembling the contradictory symbol of darkness and survival. Even with tiny asphalt pebbles on the ground, haunting music and the smoke, all the drama really came from the clothes. Every garment seemed a cobweb of leather, yarn, ribbons, lace and cheesecloth. Some of the pieces were adorned with crystals, feathers and leather

No wonder Vera Wang has moved her show away from the frenzy at the Bryant Park tents – that atmosphere wouldn’t do the elegance of her spring collection justice. In her stark white SoHo store, Wang presented sophisticated styles that she said were influenced by the late Paul Poiret, who left an indelible stamp on fashion in the early 20th century. He gave women the freedom to wear looser chemise shapes, and Wang picked up on that: There wasn’t a corset style in sight. Unfortunately Poiret also championed the harem pant; Wang translat-

JILL STUART The models at Jill Stuart had to keep pulling down their very short skirts for fear they’d end up showing more than they wanted to an audience that included Rachel Bilson, Nicky Hilton and the “Real Housewives” of New York and New Jersey. That tells you a lot about the spring collection previewed Monday at the New York Public Library. But even if the styles weren’t all to the taste of the finicky fashion crowd, that doesn’t mean Stuart’s increasingly rocker-girl clientele won’t appreciate the black illusion bodysuit paired with an electricblue leather mini, or the white leather jacket with pouffy sleeves. And those pink and

green foil dresses? Surely they’ll be the hit of prom season.

KAI MILLA Kai Milla presented her first collection since taking a break from designing full-time for mommyhood, deviating from her usual darker colors, mixing in orange and yellow. “I wanted to celebrate,” said Milla, who is married to Stevie Wonder and designed an

emerald green silk chiffon dress worn by first lady Michelle Obama. She used elements like beading and cutouts to bring a more modern look to old silhouettes. An orange silk jersey slim-fitting dress had side ruching and formed a diamond-shape in the back. A lightweight black silk jersey dress had cutouts on the side that were trimmed in beads.

EW YORK – Fashion for spring is back in black. Black never went anywhere, of course – it’s a perennial favorite with the crowd at New York Fashion Week. But in collections shown Tuesday for spring 2010, the look wasn’t terribly sunny. The nod to the spring/summer season was to offset the black with white and shades of nude, blush and stone, all part of the overall muted look that has dominated at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. Yet the black wasn’t severe, especially rendered in featherweight fabrics in sheer organza, tulle and black lace. A wave of black swept the runways of Rodarte, Vera Wang, Badgley Mischka and Jill Stuart. It was even at a tongue-in-cheek fashion show for the Snuggie – the blanket with sleeves. “You’ve heard what the new black is? It’s black,” joked host Ross Matthews, Ross the Intern from Jay Leno’s “Tonight” show.

ed that for modern times in a droopy jumpsuit. She mostly went for sultry instead of overtly sexy with layers of smoky-colored tulle, sheer black organza and artful, not flashy, embellished jewel details. Metallic pieces were a bit stiff, standing away from the body, while the bike shorts underneath the see-through styles hugged it.

Duke says no quarterback controversy DURHAM (AP) – Thad Lewis probably knew he’d hear the term “quarterback controversy” this week after the way backup Sean Renfree played in Duke’s win at Army. He just won’t let himself think of it that way. “I knew going into the season that Sean was going to play,” Lewis said Tuesday. “So there’s not a controversy at all, but it is a competition. We compete, but we make each other better and we want to make this team better.” That’s what coach David Cutcliffe is aiming for heading into this weekend’s trip to No. 22 Kansas. He has repeatedly heaped praise on Renfree, a redshirt freshman, even as he’s gone out of his way to point out that Lewis is No. 1 on the depth chart. He’s also made it clear Renfree has earned the right to play each week. “We’ve got a starting quarterback,” Cutcliffe said. “The circumstances can be just like a pitcher in baseball. If a pitcher needs relief help, he’s going to get relief help. If he can pitch a complete game, he’s usually left in there.”

ECU looks for complete game vs. UNC

GREENVILLE (AP) – Skip Holtz isn’t too encouraged by No. 24 North Carolina’s knack for starting slowly. Not when his East Carolina team has had even more trouble finishing. Two games into the season, and the Pirates (1-1) have wasted quick starts in both with stumbling finishes. Outscored by a combined 31-2 after halftime against Appalachian State and West Virginia, questions have popped up about everything from the execution of the offense to what’s being said in the locker room at halftime. “We’re not clicking,” Holtz said. “Right now, there’s a little something missing, whatever that ingredient is. But for some reason, we just haven’t been able to gel.” A sweat-it-out victory over Appalachian State and a loss at West Virginia certainly weren’t what many expected from a veteranladen program. But one thing is clear: If the Pirates expect to knock off another nationally ranked team this week in Chapel Hill, they’ll need to put two halves together. That didn’t happen in the opener, when they led Appalachian State 29-7 before the Mountaineers made it a five-point game and the defense sealed the win with a critical stop. And that definitely didn’t happen last week in Morgantown, W.Va., where the defense allowed two touchdown passes of at least 45 yards while giving up three 80-yard scoring drives in a 35-20 loss. The Tar Heels pose an interesting challenge for Holtz’s team. With third-year starting quarterback T.J. Yates distributing the ball to a group of unproven receivers, UNC has struggled to find consistency, and was shut out in the first quarters by The Citadel and UConn.

Michael Vick can throw passes to his teammates instead of ball boys. The Philadelphia Eagles elevated Vick to the team’s 53-man roster Tuesday, a move that allows the quarterback to practice with the team. Wide receiver Hank Baskett was released to make room for Vick, who is eligible to play Sept. 27 against the Kansas City Chiefs. Vick will begin practicing with the team Wednesday, though he cannot play in Sunday’s home opener against the New Orleans Saints. Vick was suspended for the first two regular-season games as the final league penalty for his role in running a dogfighting ring. Kevin Kolb is expected to take the snaps with the starters Wednesday because Donovan McNabb has a cracked rib. Jeff Garcia was signed to back up Kolb in case McNabb can’t play. Vick was brought in to give the Eagles another dimension on offense. He ran Philadelphia’s version of the wildcat offense.


Wake Forest quarterback Riley Skinner celebrates his winning sneak into the end zone against Stanford in the final seconds of Saturday’s 24-17 victory in Winston-Salem. Skinner and the Deacons look to flex their muscles and avoid an upset against Elon on Saturday.

Wary Wake Forest checks its FCS list G

iven the opportunity, Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe quickly read from his list on Tuesday. The list noted the upsets and near upsets that teams from the NCAA’s upper-tier Football Bowl Subdivision have encountered this season at the hands of teams ranked in the Football Championship Subdivision (formerly Division 1-AA) top 25. It is a list that Grobe said he read to his Demon Deacons on Monday night in an effort to convince them that they shouldn’t expect an easy time against No. 11 FCS-ranked Elon as N.C. State did in demolishing Murray State last week or UNC did in thumping The Citadel. The list includes Richmond’s upset of Duke, William and Mary knocking off Virginia, James Madison taking Maryland to overtime and Florida State scoring late to beat Jacksonville State of Alabama. It is a list that includes Iowa needing two blocked field goals to beat Northern Iowa and Eastern Kentucky fumbling while in position to score a late go-ahead touchdown against Indiana. “We‘ve got smart guys here at Wake Forest and I think they understand that if you are playing a team that is in the FCS top 25, you better buckle up because they have some good players,” Grobe said. “You know the big thing was Appalachian State beating Michigan (in 2007) but if you look at the last two weeks, their top 25 has five wins against the FBS and most of the rest of the games were decided by less than a touchdown. So, I don’t think it is a shock anymore.” It might not be a shock but certainly would be an embarrassment if a Wake program that has gone to bowl games for three straight times in its history were to lose to a member of the Southern Conference. “The thing is you may be awake and aware of how good they are, but you might not be able to do anything about it because those teams do have some talent,” Grobe said. “Our guys know what is coming to town.” Elon had enough talent to gain an average of 595 yards and score 46 points per game this season in its two lopsided victories against Davidson (56-0) and Presbyterian (41-7). The talent includes junior quarterback Scott Riddle, senior wide receiver Terrrll Hudgins and running back Jamal Shuman. Riddle, who won a state 3-AA championship at Eastern Randolph, has thrown for 7,360 yards in his career, including 672 in lopsided victories this season over FCS lightweights Davidson (56-0) and Presbyterian (41-7), and a career high 534 against Furman in 2007. Hudgins, a big target at 6-3, has 290 catches for 4,119 yards in his career and 18 grabs and four touchdowns this season. “They been so impressive, they’ve got to get your attention,” Grobe said. The Phoenix have been far from one dimensional, gaining 454 on the ground, led by Shuman’s 315.

“I’m sure we’re going to get more hype than they are,” Deacon linebacker Hunter Haynes said. “But they are a good team. We’ve got to drown out everything else, and just know there is a good team coming in and we have to prepared to play them. “You hear all week about how SPORTS we should beat Elon, but as soon as you step into the football facility Greer everyone is on your butt and you Smith don’t forget it. Our coaches ap■■■ proach every game with 100 percent intensity, and you can’t get by it.” Even though Elon posted the gaudy numbers against less than top notch competition, Grobe is concerned because his inexperienced defense has many kinks to work out after a narrow loss to Baylor and a come-from-behind victory against Stanford after an out-of-character tirade by Grobe at halftime. “We’ve got a team that didn’t play very well fundamentally in the first two games,” Grobe said. “We have some inexperienced players, but eventually, you can’t use that as an excuse. You’ve got to see kids perform very well fundamentally. “We talk around about flying around you hair is on fire, and that’s important. But if you don’t bring your bring your brain, it doesn’t do any good. That’s some of things we had going on Saturday. When you look at the video, you couldn’t say he wasn’t going hard, he was just not doing his job. We’ve got to combine the mental part with the physical part.” In both games, Wake’s defense started slowly, allowing opening possession touchdown drives, putting the Deacons in “catch up” mode for the rest of both games. They couldn’t catch Baylor but finally went past Stanford on the final play of the game. “Typically you give up the opening drive early in the year because you’re working off film from last year and they may have change personnel or strategy,” Grobe said. “We kind of got caught flat-footed against Stanford because we expected them to run the ball, and they came out and threw it all over the yard. “There’s a little bit of cat-and-mouse at the start of the game and if you have inexperienced players, they don’t adjust as well as your veterans. But we’ve got to come out a little more revved up at the start and not feel like we have to give up the first drive as a learning experience. I’d like to get out of this catch-up mode that we’ve been in.” It will be a humbling learning experience if Wake does the same Saturday. Grobe has sounded his warnings about the Phoenix. After all, he has his list. | 888-3519





everal regional college football teams that don’t always grab the headlines enjoyed smashing success last week. So let’s give a five-star salute to: •Gardner-Webb, which traveled to Cullowee and stunned Western Carolina 27-20. The Runnin’ Bulldogs stand 2-0 on the young season. •Lenoir-Rhyne’s Bears have plenty to

growl about after dismantling Davidson 42-0. The Bears sport a 2-1 record on the year. •N.C. A&T, meanwhile. improved to 2-0 with a 17-13 victory over Norfolk State. •Mars Hill joined the victory parade with a hard-fought 20-14 triumph over St. Augustine’s. •UNC-Pembroke proved too tough to tame with a 24-13 victory over Wingate. Also, kudos and congrats to N.C. State

after its 65-7 romp past Murray State tied for the seventh-most points in a game in school history. FYI, the record for most points in a Wolfpack game is 100 in a 100-0 whitewash of Hampton Roads in 1919. It’s always nice to see the regional folks do well. Keep up the good work, guys.

Even del Potro and his coach, Franco Davin, acknowledged Tuesday that they didn’t exactly arrive in New York convinced that a championship would be the end result. Not this year, anyway. “I won’t say we prepared for this U.S. Open planning to win it,” Davin said. “We came to the U.S. Open with a chance.” Del Potro, who rose one spot to No. 5 in the rank-

Panther men finish fifth in tourney ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

FARMVILLE, Va. – The High Point University men’s golf team shot 306 in the third and final round of the Draper Intercollegiate to finish in fifth place out of 13 teams with a cumulative team score of 930 (321-303-306) on Tuesday. Junior DJ Dougherty led all Panthers on the final round; shooting 73 to finish tied for 31st with a 54-hole score of 234. Freshman Chase Wilson shot his thirdstraight round in the 70s with a score of 77 to finish tops among HPU golfers in 21st place

with a three-round score of 228 for the tournament. Freshman Austin Griswell shot 81 in his final round to finish tied for 42nd with a score of 237 (79-77-81), junior Evan LaRocque finished in a tie for 47th with a total score of 239 (81-78-80) and redshirt-freshman Thomas McLellan posted his best round of the competition with a 76 in the final round to bring his two-day total to 242 (83-83-76), leaving him tied for 52nd.

High Point next returns to the links on Sept. 25 when the Panthers travel to Sunset Beach to play in the Sea Trail Intercollegiate.

ings Tuesday, won’t turn 21 until later this month and had never won a Grand Slam semifinal before this tournament. It was only on Sunday, as the Argentine was powering his way to a 6-2, 6-2, 6-2 victory over Rafael Nadal, that del Potro really began to think about what he was getting quite close to accomplishing. This, he said Tuesday, is what was running through his mind during that match: “If I beat Nadal, maybe I can win the tournament.” Maybe. In addition to earning his first major title, and giving himself a ton of confidence moving forward, what del Potro might very well have done is inspired other young players to believe that they, too, can break up the Federer-Nadal dominance. Until Monday, Federer and Nadal had combined to win 17 of the previous 18 Grand Slam titles.




NEW YORK (AP) – Any chance he got, on TV and on the Web, Juan Martin del Potro wanted to watch replays of Roger Federer’s last shot sailing out to end the U.S. Open final. It was as if del Potro himself could not quite believe that he is now a Grand Slam champion — or, perhaps, could not quite believe that Federer had failed to win his sixth consecutive title at Flushing Meadows and 16th major overall. “I still feel chills,” the del Potro said Tuesday, a day after his startling 3-6, 7-6 (5), 4-6, 7-6 (4), 6-2 comeback victory over Federer. “I can’t explain with words.” That pretty sums up the way this whole, wild U.S. Open went. Seeing Federer clutching the runner-up’s silver tray under his left arm Monday night, a blank expression on his face, while del Potro’s big silver trophy was a few feet away, stood as only the latest of a series of extraordinary AP images from the past 15 Juan Martin del Potro (left) of Argentina shakes hands with Roger Federer of Swit- days: zerland after winning the U.S. Open men’s singles championship on Monday night in * Serena Williams’ New York. finger-pointing, profan-

PREP FOOTBALL NOTEBOOK: HIGH POINT – The plays came at markedly different points in the game, and certainly weren’t identical. Still, last Friday’s Southwest Guilford-T. Wingate Andrews contest provided serious flashbacks to Oct. 29, 2007, for anyone who was in the stands at both games. Two years ago at Southwest, the Cowboys were 7 seconds away from ending a long skid to the Red Raiders. It was fourth down. The end zone was 57 yards away. Andrews was out of timeouts. Raider quarterback Jordan Reid took the snap and raced toward the right sideline with two linemen chasing him. Just before he got hit, Reid launched a high pass toward the left sideline, where Tony Washington hauled it in for a remarkable grab, then made a 30-yard dash to the end zone for an 18-14 victory. Fast-forward two years, and penalties have completely stalled an Andrews drive midway through the second quarter. It’s third-and-32 from the 44-yard line, and Southwest owns a 7-0 lead and appears determined to end that long losing streak. QB Marquez Swinton takes the snap. And rolls right while being chased. He heaves the ball just before being hit – not quite as far, not quite as high, but just as desperately as Reid. A Southwest defender steps up for what appears to be an easy interception, but somehow the ball gets just beyond him and into the arms of leaping Quan Stevenson. Just 20 yards from the end zone, Stevenson turns – but is nicked just enough by a defender to go down at the 18. “He almost got by the last guy, too,” said Andrews coach Rodney McKoy. “It did bring back flashbacks, quite naturally. We were blessed to get it.” Three plays after the miracle catch, the Raiders were in the end zone for a 7-7 tie. The stunning turn of events later would prove to be a dagger for the Cowboys in a 22-20 defeat. “That was a game-changer, because if we go in 7-0 (to halftime), we beat them,” said Southwest coach Scott Schwarzer, like McKoy a rookie leading his team on the sidelines two years ago for the first amazing completion. “That’s a Division I football player making a Division I play. That’s just a tough play, the difference in the ball game.” Offered McKoy: “That’s one of them plays you aren’t supposed to get, but you get it. It’s not like you coached it up. The kids did something really good.”

two kickoffs 7 yards deep into the end zone for touchbacks. Stevenson does it with a straight-on style that McKoy said was “1970s, 1980s kicking. You don’t see the straightahead kicker any more.” McKoy found Stevenson completely by accident when an open tryout among all the Raiders landed one kicker – who promptly got injured. In stepped Stevenson – much to McKoy’s chagrin. “What makes me mad is we played last year and we didn’t have a kicker,” McKoy ex-

claimed. “I told him, ‘Man, why didn’t you say anything last year? How many points did we leave on the board?’ ”

COMING ALONG New school Wheatmore dropped to 0-4 with Friday’s 53-26 loss to East Montgomery, but the Warriors set records for offensive production thanks to 142 yards rushing out of Josh Rickert and 126 from QB Van Peedin. Rickert scored three times, and Peedin hit Dalton Albertson for a 30-yard TD. “I think we played a lot better offensively,” coach Eugene Everhart said. “Rickert and Peedin had great games running the football, and that was a nice change for us. Our offensive line played a lot better. We thought, especially on offense, that we took a big step forward.” Wheatmore visits East Davidson this week before having another “home” game on the 25th, this time against Southwestern Randolph. While Wheatmore’s students now are roaming the halls of the new school, Everhart said no timetable has been given on when the stadium can make its Friday night debut. So far, the Warriors have been practicing and playing at Trinity.

GETTING DEFENSIVE East Davidson, now 2-2 after winning just twice on the field last fall, is making strides thanks to a strong defense. The Golden Eagles allowed just two touchdowns in wins against Randleman and Southwestern Randolph, while high-scoring Trinity put up just 23 points in a Week 2 win over East. Only 4A North Davidson has really handled the Eagles, with 35 points. “The defensive linemen played extremely well,” coach Bryan Lingerfelt said of Friday’s 16-14 win over Southwestern. A group led by Nick Gibson, Jordan Hussey, Allen Godbolt and Bryce Hedrick saw Hussey recover a fumble that led to East’s first offensive touchdown and Hedrick recover a fumble at the 5-yard line in the waning moments to seal the victory. Gibson enjoyed a big night with eight tackles and Godbolt chipped in six more. | 888-3526

San Diego running back Darren Sproles dances in the end zone after scoring the game-winning touchdown in the fourth quarter against the Oakland Raiders on Monday night. The Chargers prevailed 24-20.

Rivers, Sproles spark Chargers past Raiders

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) – The Oakland Raiders had just pulled ahead when LaDainian Tomlinson pulled his Chargers teammates together by the bench and told them they were going to win this game. Philip Rivers got in the huddle and said the same thing. Coach Norv Turner instructed his players not to panic. San Diego had practiced the 2-minute drill so many times in recent months, they all knew it wasn’t over. Rivers answered a pair of go-ahead scores from Oakland by leading two touchdown drives and Darren Sproles scored the game-winner on a 5-yard run with 18 seconds left to give the Chargers their 12th straight victory over the Raiders, 24-20 Monday night. “L.T. came over and said, ‘We’re going to win this football game,’” right tackle Jeromey Clary said. “That kind of got us going again,” Sproles said. JaMarcus Russell had given Oakland a 20-17 lead with a 57-yard touchdown pass to rookie Louis Murphy with 2:34 left. Despite having two backup linemen in the game because of injuries and nobody in reserve, Rivers calmly led the Chargers down the field for the winning touchdown. “One thing I know is no team in this

league can practice 2-minute situations as much as we do,” Rivers said. “It’s a little different executing it on Murphy Canyon Road as it is in Oakland. ... I said: ’Well, we’ve done this a million times, let’s go score. All we need is three.”’ Rivers was 6 for 7 for 79 yards on the winning drive before Sproles silenced the rowdy, sellout Coliseum crowd with his run up the middle – sending the Raiders to their 11th straight loss in prime time. Offensive lineman Cornell Green revealed Oakland’s extreme frustration with an expletive-laden outburst as he left the field, screaming all the way to the locker room that the Chargers got lucky to win. “Our football team played its guts out and didn’t finish the game,” coach Tom Cable said. “That’s the bottom line.” The Raiders took a 13-10 lead early in the fourth quarter on a 35-yard field goal by Sebastian Janikowski before Rivers drove the Chargers downfield and gave them the lead with a 15-yard touchdown pass to Vincent Jackson. Then Russell’s fourth-down pass to Murphy looked as if it would provide an emphatic end to a pair of losing streaks. Instead, it was just a footnote to Oakland’s leagueworst 73rd loss since the start of the 2003 season.

Star turn: Brady rallies Patriots past Bills

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) – If there’s one lesson to be learned from Tom Brady’s return to the NFL, it’s a simple one: the New England Patriots are never out of contention with their star quarterback on the field. That message came through above the din of more than 68,000 fans at Gillette Stadium on Monday night when Brady threw two touchdown passes to Benjamin Watson in the final minutes for a shocking 25-24 victory over the Buffalo Bills. Not that Brady and the boys were doubting they’d win their 12th straight against Buffalo in his return to the lineup after missing all but one quarter of last season with torn knee ligaments.

“We have a real competitive locker room, a real competitive team,” Brady said. “When you’re in a situation like we were, it’s when you really have to step it up. It takes every guy on the field to step it up. Hopefully, we will continue to do that.” Nobody stepped up more than Brady, who was mediocre for much of the game, only to live up to the advance billing when the spotlight was its most intense. “(Brady said) ‘We’re going to win, we need two touchdowns,’” Watson explained of the quarterback’s demeanor with Buffalo ahead 24-13. “Tom’s the best at it.” A year after the injury, Brady resembled a rusty game manager more than

the invincible record-setting quarterback who guided the Patriots to a perfect 2007 regular season. And then he became Tom Terrific again with 18- and 16-yard TD throws to Watson on similar routes. “I felt good all night, we were just off,” Brady said. “It’s a pretty special victory.” One that might not have come if Leodis McKelvin didn’t fumble on a kickoff return after the Patriots pulled within five points. Placekicker Stephen Gostkowski, of all people, recovered at the Buffalo 31. Brady needed three plays before hitting Watson over the middle for the decisive touchdown with 50 seconds to go.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Schedules for NASCAR’s top three series for 2010 announced on Tuesday show few significant changes compared to this season. The premier Cup Series will again have 36 races, beginning Feb. 14 at Daytona International Speedway and ending Nov. 21 at Homestead-Miami Speedway. The minor date shifts include the previously announced move of Phoenix and Texas swapping weekends in April, with Phoenix now earlier, and the expected shift of the May races of Dover and Lowe’s Motor Speedway, with Dover now in the middle of the month, because of the shift of Memorial Day to the last Monday in May, The tour will have four open dates, the first on March 14, followed by April 4 for Easter. The others are the traditional break in July before the Brickyard 400 and the continuation of one on the last weekend of August. Thirty-five races are again scheduled for the Nationwide Series, with the only changes involving Phoenix, Texas and Phoenix in April, and the

Dover-Lowe’s shift in May. The only new event is in the Truck Series, which will go to Pocono Raceway on July 31 as replacement for a February race at Auto Club Speedway in California. Other changes in the Truck schedule, which remains at 25 races, include races at Iowa Speedway and Gateway Raceway moving two months earlier to July, a race at Nashville Superspeedway falling a weekend later on Aug. 7 and Kentucky Speedway’s date going from July to Sept. 3. In other developments: Dale Earnhardt Jr. announced that he has hired Kelly Bires to replace departing Brad Keselowski as driver of JR Motorpsorts’ No. 88 in the Nationwide Series. ... NASCAR announced that about 300 tickets to the Cup awards banquet will be distributed among teams, sponsors and tracks to give to fans as part of promotional campaigns. The fans will make up about a quarter of the audience at the banquet, which will be in Las Vegas for the first time and is scheduled Dec. 4. | 888-3519

Bernanke: Recession ‘likely over’

WASHINGTON (AP) – Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said Tuesday that the worst recession since the 1930s is probably over. Bernanke said the economy likely is growing now, but it won’t

be sufficient to prevent the unemployment rate, now at a 26-year high of 9.7 percent, from rising. “The recession is very likely over at this point,” Bernanke said in responding to questions at the Brookings Institution.

Best Buy results miss projections

NEW YORK – Best Buy Co., the largest U.S. electronics retailer, said Tuesday second-quarter results fell below expectations but the company gained market share and said it sees signs customer traffic is stabilizing. Best Buy raised its profit and sales guidance for the year, but shares fell $1, or 2.5 percent, to $39.41 during midday trading. The stock has traded between $16.42 and $45 over the past 52 weeks. Still, profit for the three months ended Aug. 29 fell 22 percent to $158 million, or 37 cents per share, from $202 million, or 48 cents per share last year,

FDA warns Bayer over German plant WASHINGTON – U.S. health regulators have warned drugmaker Bayer over quality control issues at a plant that makes the key ingredient in Yaz and other popular birth control drugs. In a warning letter posted online Tuesday, the Food and Drug Administration said its inspectors uncovered testing problems at the company’s plant in Berghamen, Germany, during a March visit. FDA inspectors said the company measured the quality of its drug ingredients based on an average of several samples, instead of reporting individual tests results.

reform will be forthcoming,” Bernanke said. It has been “too big a calamity” over the past year, with the near meltdown of the U.S. financial system, for Congress not to take action, he added.

President Barack Obama on Monday urged Congress to enact legislation this year. Bernanke’s speech to at Brookings was identical to the one he delivered last month at a Fed conference in Wyo-

ming. Analysts predict the economy is growing in the current quarter, which ends Sept. 30, at an annual rate of 3 to 4 percent. It contracted at a 1 percent pace in the second quarter.

Retail sales beat expectations


BEIJING – China tried Tuesday to allay fears of a trade war with Washington over tire tariffs, saying it will press a World Trade Organization case against new U.S. duties but wants to avoid harming relations. “U.S. and Chinese trade and economic relations are the most important bilateral relations. We don’t want to see anything bad happen to bilateral relations,” said a Commerce Ministry spokesman, Yao Jian, at a news conference. Beijing filed a WTO complaint Monday challenging the higher tariffs on U.S. imports of Chinese-made tires as a violation of free-trade rules.

The Fed boss also said he is confident that Congress will enact a revamp of the nation’s financial rule book to prevent a future crisis from happening. “I feel quite confident that a comprehensive

WASHINGTON (AP) — Retail sales jumped in August by the largest amount in more than three years, spurred by widespread gains beyond the expected increases of auto sales from the government’s Cash for Clunkers auto exchange program. And while inflation at the wholesale level also rose last month as gasoline prices surged the most in a decade, the retail sales report is a sign that consumers may be less cautious about spending as the economy recovers. Consumer spending is closely watched because it accounts for about 70 percent of the nation’s economic activity. Economists were encouraged by the reports, but warned that jobs remain scarce and credit tight, making it difficult for consumers to mount sustained increases in spending. “Big gains may be short-lived as the weak labor market will weigh on consumers into next year,” Adam York, an economist at Wells Fargo Securities, wrote in a note to clients. The Commerce Department said Tuesday that retail sales rose a seasonally adjusted 2.7

That’s the largest gain in three-and-a-half years and beat analysts’ expectations of a 2 percent increase, according to a survey by Thomson Reuters.

Excluding autos, sales rose 1.1 percent, ahead of an expected 0.4 percent jump. Excluding autos and gas, sales rose 0.6 percent, the most in six months. In a separate report, the Labor Department said wholesale pric-

es rose 1.7 percent in August, more than double the 0.8 percent rise economists expected. Wholesale prices had fallen by 0.9 percent in July. Both months were heavily affected by energy prices.

NEW YORK (AP) – Better news on retail sales and manufacturing helped send stocks higher Tuesday, as did comments from Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke that the recession was probably over. Surging materials and industrial companies like Alcoa and Caterpillar pulled the Dow Jones industrial average to a gain of 57 points, its seventh climb in eight days and another high for the year. Manufacturers are expected to be among the early beneficiaries if the economy strengthens and demand picks up. Hopes for a rebound grew after the government reported that retail sales jumped in August by the biggest amount in three years. The Fed’s index of manufacturing in the New York region rose to its best level since late 2007. That upbeat economic news helped allay concerns about a sepa-

rate government report finding that inflation at the wholesale level rose last month at double the rate analysts expected. The Dow rose 56.61, or 0.6 percent, to 9,683.41, its highest close since Oct. 6, when it finished at 9,956. The S&P 500 index rose 3.29, or 0.3 percent, to 1,052.63, while the Nasdaq composite index rose 10.86, or 0.5 percent, to 2,102.64. All three indicators are at their highest levels for 2009. More than two stocks rose for every one that fell on the New York Stock Exchange, where consolidated volume came to 6.3 billion shares compared with 4.9 billion Monday. The government’s report that retail sales jumped 2.7 percent in August boosted confidence in the economy. Analysts say improvements in consumer spending are crucial to a recovery.

with a 5 percent drop in coach. The amount passengers will pay to travel is expected to fall 12 percent this year. “When yields fall, they almost never recover,” said Giovanni Bisignani, IATA’s director general and CEO, speaking at a news conference in Washington. Because of the recession, airlines are losing more money in 2008-2009 than they lost in 20012002 after the Sept. 11 attacks, Bisignani said. After Sept. 11, it took more than three years for airline revenues to recover – and that was in a much smaller recession, he said. “This could be a long-lasting structural change,” he said. “Even with better volumes we don’t see industry revenues returning to 2008

Airline group predicts huge loss WASHINGTON (AP) – Global airline losses are headed for a worsethan-expected $11 billion this year and it’s not clear when lucrative business travel will rebound to pre-recession levels, a trade group said on Tuesday. As recently as June, the International Air Transport Association had expected airlines to lose $9 billion this year. But airlines lost $6 billion in the first half alone. They’re still suffering from persistently high fuel prices, weak demand, and falling fares. Airlines have struggled to fill seats – especially the profitable ones at the front of the plane, and last-minute business travelers who pay more. Demand for business and firstclass seats has dropped 20 percent, compared

Geithner cautiously points to rebound


Big K diet orange bottles, a Kroger Co. brand, go by on a conveyor belt at a Kroger plant in Cincinnati.

Kroger profit falls 8 percent CINCINNATI (AP) — The Kroger Co.’s second-quarter profit fell nearly 8 percent as bargain-minded households cut spending more deeply and the grocer cut prices to hold onto worried shoppers who are trying to stretch their dollars. Cincinnati-based Kroger, the nation’s largest traditional grocery chain, said Tuesday that sales also fell in the quarter. It cut its earnings guidance for the

full year, saying it expects continued economic weakness and intense price competition for households that are cautious about their money in the recession. Kroger officials said shoppers are coming to its stores more often, but buying only as much as they need for the week or their next meal, and they show signs of running out of money by the end of the month.

While buying more total items over the month, they are trading down among brands, and even within Kroger’s own three-tiered line of store-brand products to the no-frills “Value” brand. “The consumers throughout the U.S. obviously are going through a lot of trauma,” David B. Dillon, Kroger’s chairman and CEO, told investors in a conference call.

WASHINGTON (AP) – Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner acknowledged Tuesday the federal government had to take some “deeply offensive” steps to help the country get past the financial crisis a year ago. But he also said in a nationally broadcast interview that things are “dramatically different” now, although it’s too early to say the economy is in recovery. “A year ago we really were on the verge of a full-scale run” on banks, along the lines of the 1930s Depression, Geithner said in an interview broadcast on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” He said “the biggest fear now, the biggest challenge, is to make sure we change the rules of the game so it doesn’t happen again.”

Police said similarities between those cases and the 1991 kidnapping of Jaycee Dugard led them to search the properties. Hayward police said a sketch of a man suspected of taking Michaela outside a market where she was buying candy with a friend resembles photographs of Phillip Garrido at the time of the abduction. The circumstances of the daytime snatchings also were similar. They took place in public places and the getaway cars looked alike as did the victims, Lt. Christine Orrey said. Police were looking for clothes, DNA evidence, remains and disturbed soil that could indicate a grave site. Orrey said the search could take days.

(AP) – A federal report says the government is moving so slowly to clean up the most polluted sites in the Great Lakes that it will take 77 more years to finish the job at the current pace. The inspector general’s office with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency released the report this week. It deals with 31 socalled “areas of concern,” which are river bottoms,

Baltimore City police officers talk at the house where a Johns Hopkins University student armed with a samurai sword killed an intruder in his garage Tuesday in Baltimore, Md.

BALTIMORE (AP) – A Johns Hopkins University student armed with a samurai sword killed a suspected burglar in a garage behind his off-campus home early Tuesday, hours after someone broke in and stole electronics. Some shocked neighbors said they heard bloodcurdling screams in an area just blocks from the university. Police held the student, a junior chemistry major who turns 21 on Sunday, for several hours, but he was not charged with any crimes Tuesday, police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said. Around 1:20 a.m., the student heard noises behind the home and noticed a door to the garage was open, Guglielmi said. He grabbed the sword and confronted the intruder – identified by police as Donald D. Rice, 49, a habitual offender who had just been released from jail. Rice was crouching beneath a counter, police said. The student asked him what he was doing and threatened to call police. “When he said that, the suspect lunged at him, kind of forced the kid against the wall, and he struck him with the sword,” Guglielmi said. Rice’s left hand was nearly severed – Guglielmi described it as “hanging on by a thread” – and he suffered a severe cut to the upper body. He died at the scene. On Monday, two laptops and a Sony PlayStation were stolen from the student’s home, which he shares with three other students, but police were not sure whether Rice was responsible, Guglielmi said.

Schwarzenegger signs order boosting clean power RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif. (AP) – Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed an executive order Tuesday giving California the nation’s most aggressive alternative energy standards, requiring utilities to get a third of their power from renewable sources by 2020. Schwarzenegger said the order signed at a field of solar panels will reduce California’s dependence on

fossil fuels and help clean its air while creating a reliable power supply for a state with 38 million people. It also will ensure that California remains a pioneer in clean energy by harnessing wind, solar, biomass and other renewable resources, he said. “This is really a great day today because we are creating major ac-

tion to create more green jobs and more green energy,” Schwarzenegger said while signing the order in the Sacramento suburb of Rancho Cordova. “Right now we are relying too heavily on dirty coal-fired power plants and this pollutes the air and it sickens our children,” Schwarzenegger said. “We can do much better than that.”
