Company to bring 68 jobs to city



Vicki Pope joined First Mortgage Corp. as a home loan consultant. She has been in the mortgage industry for nine years.


HIGH POINT – A company that recently was offered economic incentives from the city, county and state has finalized its decision to come to High Point. New Jersey-based Baltek Inc. will move its divisional headquarters to an unoccupied building at 5240 National Center Drive and bring 68 jobs along with it, according to announcements made by the High Point Economic Development Corp. and the governor’s office on Friday. Baltek Inc. is a manufacturer and distributor of composite products such as balsa and foam materials used in cars, boats and wind turbines. It is a company of 3A Composites, which has existing North Carolina operations in Statesville and Mooresville. The parent company of 3A Composites is Schweiter Technologies, headquartered in Switzerland. Approximately 56 new jobs will be created at the facility and 12 employees will be transferred from out of state, the HPEDC reported. The average annual wages for the workers will be $43,544 by the end of 2011, when the facility is in full operation. The company will increase the city’s tax base by $3.5 million. The High Point City Council unanimously approved up to $94,500 in cash incentives for the company last week to be paid out over three years subject to a performance agreement. On Thursday, the Guilford County Board of Commissioners authorized up to $89,500, also to be paid over three years. Gov. Beverly Perdue announced Friday that North Carolina would provide up to $204,000 from the One North Carolina Fund, the state’s main incentives fund, bringing the total of incentives the company could receive to $388,000. Though the selected site is within the High Point city limits, it has a Colfax address, said HPEDC President Loren Hill. “The company knows and has agreed to our incentives policy saying that Baltek will need to have a High Point post office box and call itself a High Point company were it to accept city incentives,” he told the City Council at its meeting Sept. 9. He referred to the project as “highly competitive” in a statement on Friday. “After searching in many states, High Point and a community in a neighboring state were the finalists under consideration,” he said. “We are honored that Baltek has chosen to locate in High Point, and I am pleased to announce that the company will open in its new High Point location before the end of the year.” For more information about the company, go to www.core | 888-3617

City mulls contingency plan for Oak Hollow Mall BY PAT KIMBROUGH ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – The idea of the city buying Oak Hollow Mall surfaced this week, but leaders stressed that the notion is more of a contingency plan than something that is being actively pursued. After some City Council members expressed interest in the idea, City Manager Strib Boynton sent the full council an e-mail this week outlining how a purchase might work. Boynton was quick to point out that while the city can buy the mall in theory, it would take millions of public dollars to acquire the site and renovate it to house city functions, such as the police department. The plan would involve a method of borrowing money through certificates of

participation that is similar to revenue or special obligation bond financing. “To proceed, if that is what you

Neither of those exist at this writing,” Boynton’s e-mail stated. A Texas company has emerged

as a bidder to buy the mall from CBL & Associates Properties Inc. A deal with Provident Realty Advisors of Dallas has not closed, but negotiations are ongoing. “I think if there is a private investor, we’re not going to stand in the way,” said Councilwoman Bernita Sims. “Our main concern was that we just did not want the mall to go dark. And so if no one else stepped up to the plate, the conversation was to explore the possibility of the city getting involved in that. We’re not in the business of wanting to prohibit any private entity from being engaged in what happens at the mall, so if there’s a deal on the table, by all means, I would love to see it move forward.” If the city were to get involved, one possibility would be to re-


Judge reduces bond of former hospital worker BY PAT KIMBROUGH ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – A judge lowered the bond Friday for a former High Point Regional Hospital nursing assistant charged with sexually assaulting a patient. Chad Matthew Collins, 38, of Collier Drive, Greensboro, made his first court appearance via video from the Guilford County Jail in High Point following his arrest Thursday on one count of sexual battery. He has been fired from his job since hospital staff reported to police on Sunday that Collins assaulted an emergency room patient. Friday’s ruling reduced Collins’ secured bond from $10,000 to $5,000. In laying out some of the authorities’ allegations against Collins, Assistant District Attorney Leah Howell asked for no reduction in his

bond. She said on Sunday evening Collins went into the room of the alleged victim – a 20-year-old male who had gone to the emergency room for

Friday’s ruling reduced Collins’ secured bond from $10,000 to $5,000. a stomach disorder – multiple times, even though he was not supposed to be with any patients. Howell said during one encounter Collins pulled down the alleged victim’s pants and fondled him. “We allege that he did this under the color of authority and preyed on (the alleged victim),” Howell said. High Point attorney Joe Floyd II appeared on Collins’ behalf and argued for a bond reduction, pointing


out that the charge he faces is a class A1 misdemeanor, which generally does not carry a secured bond. Collins has no criminal record, and Floyd said he has ties to the community and is eligible for pretrial release monitoring to ensure he shows up for future court dates. “These are simply allegations at this point, and that’s how we should take them,” Floyd said. Collins’ mother also appeared on his behalf, as did a man identified as his roommate, who said Collins has lived with him for four years. Collins was ordered to have no contact with the alleged victim, who was not in court, or the hospital. High Point Regional Health System issued a statement Thursday saying it is cooperating with police and would not comment on Collins “in light of the ongoing investigation.” | 888-3531

HIGH POINT – Several moves that boost the presence of home furnishings companies at the High Point Market have been announced in the past week. Showplace announced Friday that Bolton Furniture has signed a longterm lease for a location on the second floor. The Morrisville, Vt.-based company is involved in casegoods and children’s bedroom furnishings. The location, which will debut with next month’s fall furniture market, will allow Bolton to expand its trade show space in High Point, said Allison Akes, leasing manager for Showplace. “Our new showroom is twice the size we’ve had in High Point and will give us the opportunity to present Bolton Furniture better than it has ever been presented before,” said Ted Weber, sales manager for Bolton. Bolton, who will cover more than 3,500 square feet at Showplace, is relocating from the International Home Furnishings Center. Meanwhile, a company

that’s been a fixture in the western United States and has a presence at the World Market Center in Las Vegas will debut its first High Point Market showroom next month at the IHFC. RC Furniture will occupy 8,300 square feet in the Wrenn Wing of IHFC, said Robert Rawlins, vice president of sales with RC Furniture. After 25 years of operating in the West, the company has decided to take its business nationwide and felt the need for a presence in High Point as well as Las Vegas. The company markets its products under the RC Furniture, Rene Cazares and Moderna brand names. Also, furniture company Scott Thomas announces that it has relocated and expanded its High Point Market showroom. The Twinsburg, Ohio-based casegoods company has moved from 200 Steele to 525 North Wrenn, known as the Tomlinson building. Scott Thomas will open at its new location covering 16,000 square feet for the fall market, which officially takes place Oct. 16-21. | 888-3528

NC infant mortality rate declines to record low

Agency head defends state crime lab accreditation evolving since its inception,” said Keaton, executive director of the American Society of Crime Lab Directors/Laboratory Accreditation Board. “There’s not a lab in the country that could have measured up to the standards we have today 25 years ago. I think the accreditation process we have today is extremely robust and meets all the needs of a quality lab.” An independent report released last month found that analysts hadn’t always included all blood test results on lab reports that are provided to courts. The review covered 16 years, ending in 2003.

RALEIGH (AP) – The head of the group that accredits North Carolina’s crime lab defended that accreditation process Friday, saying he’s willing to speak with legislators if they ask. Ralph Keaton, head of the Garner-based accreditation agency, said Friday that legislators who talked about finding another group to accredit the lab don’t have all the information. Legislators said at a committee meeting Thursday that they were concerned because the accreditation process didn’t uncover problems at the lab. “What they don’t understand is the accreditation process has been

The report recommended that district attorneys reexamine the 190 of the 229 cases in which results were omitted or unclear and someone was arrested. Keaton worked for 30 years for the SBI, including as the secondin-command of the lab when he retired in 1995. His tenure at the lab included some of the same years that the review covered. At a legislative committee meeting Thursday, lawmakers questioned whether the accreditation is worthwhile since the Garnerbased board didn’t uncover the problems with how the lab reports were worded.

RALEIGH (AP) – North Carolina’s infant morality rate declined in 2009 to the lowest level on record. The state Department of Health and Human Services said Friday there were 7.9 deaths for every 1,000 live births in 2009, compared to 8.2 deaths the year before.

TOM CAMPBELL: What will N.C. court say about ballot access? TOMORROW

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


Obama’s ‘restructuring’ of economy must end It has been said often, and with more eloquence than I, that Barack Obama’s priorities are misplaced. “Where are the jobs?” pundits are asking. But even as he lip-serves employment, he needles America. Vladimir Lenin, the founder of Soviet communism, once said, “Medicine is the keystone of the arch of socialism,” and it’s clear that Obama and Lenin share philosophy. Clearer still is that Obama doesn’t care. Not about November. Not about your family. Not about your job. What he prioritizes – as evidenced by his push for “reform” – is the “fundamental restructuring” of the American economy. Andy Stern, former president of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), the most frequent visitor to the White House, and longtime close friend to Obama recently stated in a speech, “Clearly government has



a major opportunity to distribute wealth. We stand at a crossroads, we are at the historical crossroad, I think, economically, in terms of what a new president is trying to do, and a different way in which we’re going to evaluate the economy. All of a sudden, we are witnessing the first new American economy – led by the government and not the private sector.” Chilling. President Obama fails to see America as a land of opportunity, rejects wealth creation and intends to “grow the middle,” not by lifting the poor, but by shrinking the top. The long-held assumption that empowerment of the lower-class will “grow the middle” is gone. This explains his obsession with health care – the “keystone” is in reach.

And should he grab it, we will all be less free. We have an opportunity to fix this, but we must act now. November is the most important election of our lifetime! It’s November or never. MIKE ROBERTSON Trinity

Clapp will bring new ideas to Guilford school board As a life-long Guilford County resident, I would like to endorse Lisa Clapp for the Guilford County school board at-large seat. This endorsement is in no way critical of the current at-large seat holder who has held this seat for a number of years. However, based upon best available information

and recently published school results, we need to better address the direction of our schools coupled with improved community input. Clapps’s goals primarily are (1) safety and discipline for students, teachers and administrators, (2) better methods to improve academic achievement for all students (3) financial accountability and transparency and (4) openness to discuss and address concerns within the system keeping in mind that the students are the focus. In order to continually improve any elected office, turn-over is required which will generate new ideas, new questions and paths. Clapp will ask the tough questions and do the hard work. This is why I strongly support Lisa Clapp for the Guilford County school board at-large seat. DAN WEST McLeansville

Angry voters seek inclusion at the polls Hickory Daily Record, Sept. 16 The so-called Tea Party Express has scored some impressive primary victories. The latest one is in Delaware where a Tea Party candidate defeated a veteran Republican lawmaker. The Tea Party has been called grassroots, it has been labeled extremist. Democrats are heartened because they see these candidates – mostly political neophytes – as giving Democrats better chances at the polls in November. Many Republicans are worried, saying the party has been hijacked and decrying the GOP civil war. What the Tea Party victories signal is a growing mood against the Capitol Hill establishment. This is not a Republican phenomenon, but an indication that American voters are fed up with business as usual in Washington. It’s a message to both major parties. Democrats gained control of the White House and Congress because there was not enough support, nationwide, for Republican candidates. Failure to live up to expectations has jeopardized Republicans and Democrats as Tea Party supporters have their way. One of the basic tenets of the Tea Party is to clean the slate and put fresh faces in Washington, regardless of an incumbent’s political affiliation. The perception is that Democrats and Republicans pay more attention to party power and posturing than to the national, public interest. Another complaint is that Congress is surrendering too much power to the Oval Office – power that rightfully, logically and constitutionally belongs to the House and Senate. And, many Americans believe nobody in Washington is listening. Are there bona fide candidates worthy of attention? Again, yes. Are there extremists among the Tea Party legions? Yes. Tea Party candidates cannot be eliminated from consideration when the public chooses its elected officials. They have struck a chord with many people, a chord that rings across the nation and commands attention. There is much fluff, misdirection and outright fabrications that mar the political landscape. No party is immune. Cut through the haze, however, and an important truth remains. People are frustrated, angry, puzzled and motivated. Too many people feel excluded. They want answers and leadership. All candidates wanting to survive Nov. 2, including the Tea Party favorites now relishing the taste of victory in primary elections, should remember that.

Net neutrality: It’s a crucial issue with a lame name


he term “net neutrality” has the magical property of making most people’s eyes glaze over. First, it sounds like a gambling term. “I have a system and net neutrality – I can’t lose!” Second, no one using the Internet calls it “the net” anymore. Just like no one in San Francisco calls it “Frisco.” So the term “net neutrality” either sounds super techie and over-yourhead, or more dated than the 1995 Sandra Bullock movie called … The Net. The concept of Net Neutrality is simple: all content should be treated equally. The Internet should be, as it has been, on a virtual level playing field. Google and Verizon announced at the beginning of August their agreement for an “Open Internet.” In their statement the FCC will continue to lack the power to enforce an open Internet, and it excludes wireless broadband from transparency, citing proprietary concerns. This is worrisome since wireless broadband is the future of the Internet. Plus, in order to ensure “openness,” wireless or not, the Internet should be regulated like any other public utility. So as soon as the word “regulation” is uttered, a Frankenstein monster of a faux populist movement arises to dispute and/or cloud the issue. With corporate sponsorship they’ve become a loud lobbying spectacle for business interests. Cleverly they use pro-working people language, and often working people themselves, to sell policies of freedom for corporations. Yes, the Tea Party, or the Grand Old Party on caffeine, is (of course) against Net Neutrality. The Tea Party and its coalition of “grass roots” think tanks want corporations to be in control of the Internet so it will “stay open.” In a signed letter sent to the FCC and the media the day after the Google/Verizon agreement was announced, the Tea Party groups’ statement added that government regulation, “could also remove the ability for parents and ISPs to prevent inappropriate material from entering the home.” Catch that? Let business do what it wants or you won’t be able to protect your children from smut. It’s the most vulgar thing I’ve ever heard. Horribly untrue. And a cynical attempt at fear-mongering. Government regulation is always annoying – unless we can’t swim in the Gulf of Mexico, or eat eggs, spinach, beef or peanut butter. But wait – annoying to whom?

Government regulation irks corporations. For those of us who drive the cars, eat the food or take the medications made by corporations, government regulations are in the most basic way – lifesavers. OPINION The Tea Party would have opposed the National Parks Tina system. Sectioning off milDupuy lions of acres of land which otherwise could be privately developed is a job killer! Letting places like Yosemite Valley just sit there without allowing business to “improve the experience” is an affront to freedom! Uncle Sam’s telling Americans where they can and can’t build is government overreach! The whole scheme will raise your taxes! Taxes – and they’ll take your guns! But no, Republican leaders like Abraham Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt saw how these parks should be nationalized, saved for future generations to have and enjoy. And our more perfect union needs to ensure that the Internet can be open and indifferent to content (even if you disagree with said content). Congress didn’t just sit on their hands and hope that just because no one had yet developed Yellowstone it wasn’t at risk of such a fate.. What needs to happen? Earlier this year, the U.S Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia handed down the Comcast Decision stating under current law, the FCC doesn’t have the authority to regulate equality of content. This means the law must be changed. Congressman Henry Waxman, chairman of the Committee on Energy and Commerce that oversees the FCC, said he is for Net Neutrality. Waxman said any bill about the issue would have to come out of his committee. What’s taking so long? The hold up is that the term “Net Neutrality” sounds like a fishing ordinance instead of what Sen. Al Franken describes as “the free speech issue of our time.”

Pope admits church failures in sex abuse scandal EDINBURGH, Scotland (AP) – Pope Benedict XVI waded into the hostile atmosphere Thursday of highly secular Britain, admitting the Catholic Church did not act decisively or quickly enough to remove priests who molested children in his strongest comments yet on the worldwide sex abuse crisis shaking his church. In a visit unprecedented for the bitter opposition to his papacy, Benedict warned against “aggres-

sive forms” of secularism. The German pope recalled how Britain had stood against “Nazi tyranny that wished to eradicate God from society.” Benedict’s historic fourday state visit has been overshadowed by disgust over the abuse scandal and indifference in Britain, where Catholics are a minority of 10 percent and endured centuries of bloody persecution and discrimination until the early 19th century. The trip is the first state

visit by a pope to the U.K., and his meeting with Queen Elizabeth II was symbolically significant because of the historic divide between the officially Protestant nation and the Catholic Church. Only 65,000 of the faithful had tickets to an openair Mass at Bellahouston Park in Glasgow, far less than the 100,000 initially expected. The British media has been particularly hostile to the pope’s visit, noting its $18.7 million security cost to taxpayers.

His display of selfJohn 16:33 control and his willingness to forgive the bad call was perhaps a better example to all of us than his perfect game would have been. After the game it was apparent that Mr. Joyce was mortified by his bad call, saying that he had botched what should have been the final out in Galarraga’s gem of a game. But, what was really admirable in this whole affair was Armando Galarraga’s willingness to say, in effect, “No problem, we all make mistakes” and Jim Joyce’s willingness to admit the mistake, express regret and personally apologize. Given the good example that was exemplified by both men, maybe this was a perfect game.

Roman 2:1


The evidence: Mark probably knew Jesus Peter in. Mary was wealthy enough to have livein help; Peter came at night STUDYING and she THE CHURCH answered the door at night, Mark which Nickens meant she ■■■ probably lived there. And “many people” were gathered there, so it was a larger house. Therefore, Mark’s mother Mary was a wealthy woman whose home was recognized as an important gathering spot in early Christianity. But what evidence do we have that Mark knew Jesus? Look at Mark 14:51, 52. Jesus had eaten the Last Supper with his Apostles and was in the Garden of Gethsemane. Judas appears with soldiers and walks up to Jesus and kisses him and the soldiers arrest Jesus. Then in verse 51 and 52: “A young man, wearing nothing but a linen garment, was following Jesus. When they seized him [the young man], he fled naked, leaving his garment behind.” Question: who cares

about the boy? Jesus was just arrested! Well, the only one who would care was the boy himself. This fact is only listed in the Gospel of Mark and therefore this is a good indication that Mark was in the Garden because he was that boy. So Mark’s mother was an important person in the early Christian movement, and probably even before Jesus was crucified. Being a wealthy woman, she owned a house with a second floor (which archaeologists have discovered only the wealthy had). So we have the following possible scenario: Jesus and his Apostles ate the Last Supper at Mark’s house. They left late and Mark decided to follow them. He was in a hurry and so grabbed a linen garment. They went to the Garden of Gethsemane with Mark in tow. Mark hangs around until the soldiers show up and he takes off running after one of the soldiers grabs at him and only gets his garment. In addition, Colossians 4:10 mentions another relative of Mark: He is the cousin of Barnabas. As for Mark’s later life, we know from numerous passages in Acts that

Mark traveled with Paul, and was known as John Mark (see Acts 12:12, 13 above). Later he traveled with Peter and grew close to him (in I Peter 5:13 Peter refers to him as “my son”). Papias, an early Christian scholar who lived from 60-130, wrote that Mark was the “interpreter of Peter,” meaning that he wrote down Peter’s memories of Jesus (this formed a large part of the Gospel of Mark). Eusebius, the first church historian, wrote that Mark was the first missionary to be sent to Africa and he established churches there. These churches became quite large, and so Mark, as head of these churches, might have been the first bishop in Africa.

ther than Jesus, Peter, and Paul, we do not know much about the characters in the New Testament. But a biography can be pieced together for several of them, using both biblical sources and sources outside the Bible. This summary will focus on a biography of Mark. First of all, Mark appears to have known Jesus and there is a good possibility that Jesus ate the Last Supper in Mark’s house. But to get to that conclusion, several points have to be made. First, Acts 12:12, 13 reveal that Mark’s house was a central meeting place for the new Christian movement. Herod Antipas had arrested Peter, but during the night an angel led Peter out of the jail. From verses 12 and 13: “When this [escape] had dawned on him, he went to the house of Mary the mother of John, also called Mark, where many people had gathered and were praying. Peter knocked at the outer entrance, and a servant girl named Rhoda came to answer the door.” These verses tell us that Mark’s mother was named Mary and her house was a central gathering place in the early Christian movement in Jerusalem. We know this because of two reasons: (a) As soon as Peter was free, he went straight to Mary’s house and (b) many people were there praying for Peter. And she was wealthy. In verse 13, a servant girl came to the door and let

No holds barred Brown, Holliman duel in expensive, intense state House race BY DARRICK IGNASIAK ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

THOMASVILLE – Fundraising campaigns for the 81st House District candidates could likely be a decisive factor in who wins the seat in November. For the second consecutive election, Rep. Hugh Holliman, D-Davidson and House majority leader, hopes to fend off a challenge from Republican Rayne

Brown. The two faced off Thursday in a candidates forum hosted by Piedmont Crossing Retirement Community. Brown said Thursday that she has raised double the $14,000 she did in 2008, when the political newcomer narrowly lost to Holliman. She said she raised about $25,000 alone at a fundraiser last week at Yarborough’s Restaurant in Lexington. “I just think that people believe in me now,” Brown said. “I was such a novice coming out of ’08. It was a new experience for me ... In ’08, there were so many things that I didn’t know to do, and then there were other things that I know I should do that I didn’t have the means to do. This year,

I am going to have the means of what I need to do win.” Meanwhile, Holliman says he has raised about $100,000 so far in his hopes to get re-elected. He accused Brown of being involved with Real Jobs NC, a group that is considered a 527 organization. Holliman said the group recently sent out mailers attacking his record, making false claims and stretching the truth. He said the group is trying to inflame the uninformed. Brown dismissed Holliman’s claim that she has ties with the group. “I just think that is amazing,” she said. “The state is in such dire straits that you’ve now got groups coming out who are just desperate



for a change in leadership. My opponent just hasn’t ever had to face that, and that’s tough.” The amount raised by the Holliman and Brown campaigns are much more than an average, noncompetitive state legislative race in North Carolina, though not unusual for a competitive race. “When you compare her money to my money, you are really not comparing apples to apples because of the way the Republican Party does things,” Holliman said. “They will run four fliers against me from Raleigh and never go through her account.” Staff Writer Paul B. Johnson contributed to this story.

Andy LaRowe was named the Guilford County Schools chief operations officer. LaRowe has served the district since 2007 as the executive director of facilities and construction management. He has served as the interim chief operations officer since May. | 888-3657

Home sales dip in August

HIGH POINT – Home sales in High Point dipped slightly last month compared to the prior year, but month-to-month sales received a boost. A total of 98 homes were sold in August, down 1 percent compared to August 2009, according to data prepared by the Triad Multiple Listings Service. But sales were up 17 percent from July, when 84 units were sold. There were 106 houses pending sale in August – the first time the number of pending units has reached triple digits since January, when pending units were first tracked. Ed Terry, executive vice president of the High Point Regional Association of Realtors, said the higher month-to-month sales, increase of pending sales and move-up sales, or homes in the $200,000-$500,000 price range, were improvements for the local housing market. According to Terry, 14 percent of August sales were move-up sales. “Since there is not a tax-credit motivator, this is a positive sign that people are beginning to look at housing as a quality, long-term investment, not simply a good deal as a result of an artificial stimulant,” he said. The average sale price of homes in High Point continued to fluctuate, however, as it has in recent months. It dropped to $144,453 last month, down 12 percent from July and down 2 percent from last year. The average sale price showed some stabilization in July when it reached $165,053, up from $151,321 in June. Home prices in the GreensboroHigh Point metropolitan area declined 2.9 percent in July, according to the latest CoreLogic report. Fear of more economic turmoil, foreclosures, short sells and an increase in the price of raw building materials are affecting buying habits, said Stan Byrd, president of Stan Byrd & Associates. “(The cost of) building materials is substantially up this year,” Byrd said. “With new homes, we’ve got an inflation of prices. With existing homes, we’ve got a deflation. It’s the biggest gap between the two I’ve ever seen.”

The campus, which serves 5,000 to 6,000 students, has had a space problem for some time, McNeill said. “Once fully operational, we hope to provide any student who majors in any of our curriculum programs housed on the High Point campus


– Entertainment Technology, Human Services Technology, Simulation and Gaming, Pharmacy Technology and Upholstery – the opportunity to take all the classes they need to graduate right here on this campus,” she said. “Eventually, I think we will serve 10,000 people.” The new building provides more room for developmental education classes, a biology lab and a physics lab, new for the High Point campus. Commissioner Bruce Davis of High Point praised the foresight of the Board of Commissioners for supporting a bond referendum that provided funds for the three-tier building. The master plan for the High Point campus calls for the construction of three more buildings, according to college President Donald Cameron. “The 2004 vision is a reality today. GTCC, without a doubt, is the best of county services. They know no bounds,” said High Point Mayor Rebecca Smothers.

Summer takes its toll on area lawns M

y lawn looks the worst it has in 20 years; overtaken with weeds and weedy grasses like goosegrass, crabgrass and barnyard grass. A big part of the reason is the volatile weather patterns of drought periods, 60 days of 90 degrees and above, heavy frog-strangler rains of 4-6 inches within a couple of hours and my busy schedule. But enough excuses, how can my lawn be revived and reclaimed from our sub-tropical jungle of high weed pressure? Autumn is an excellent time for lawn renovation for cool season growing grasses like fescue and bluegrass. Not so good a time for warm season grasses like bermudagrass, zoysiagrass and centipede grass. Warm-season grasses should not be seeded in the fall since there is not enough time for maturity before the first expected frost. Most years, the first couple of weeks of September are

ideal for renovation and seeding of lawns, but this year has been very dry. But September is still a good month to get the ECOLOGY job done. The North Carolina Gwyn State UniverRiddick sity Center for â&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  Environmental Research and Education has provided some guidelines. NCSU Professor and Extension Specialist, Grady Miller, says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Optimum air temperatures for tall fescue germination are 68 to 77°F and soil temperatures greater than 60°F. If tall fescue is seeded in less than ideal conditions (too cool or no soil moisture), the results may be a thin turf stand going into the winter. So, it may be better to seed a little early than waiting and seeding too late.â&#x20AC;?

Some of the recommended varieties of cool-season s cultivars for tall fescue with excellent performance in North Carolina are: 2nd Millennium, Avenger, Barlexas, Barlexas II, Barrera, Barrington, Biltmore, Bingo, Bonsai, Bravo, Cayenne, Constitution, Coyote, Davinci, Desire, Dominion, Dynasty, Endeavor, Escalade, Falcon II, Falcon IV, Fidelity, Finesse II, Fireaza, Firebird, Focus, Grande II, Greenkeeper, Greystone, Hunter , Inferno, Jaguar 3, Justice, Kalahari, Kitty Hawk 2000, Legitimate, Lexington, Magellan, Masterpiece, Matador, Millennium, Millennium SRP, Mustang, Mustang 3 Olympic Gold, Padre, Picasso, Plantation, Proseeds 5301, Propect, Pure Gold, Quest, Rebel Exeda, Rebel Sentry, Rebel IV, Regiment II, Rembrandt, Rhambler, RendiScorpion, Serengeti, Signia, Silverstar, Southern Choice II, Stetson, Tarheel, Titan ltd,

Titanium, Tracer, Ultimate, Watchdog and Wolfpack. Dr. Miller also stipulates homeowners should try to find a brand mixture with at least one of the cultivars from the list of recommended cultivars if a fescue blend is purchased. These grasses were chosen because they produce a high quality turf in North Carolina and have been shown to be less susceptible to brown patch. Some folks like to mix in a little Kentucky bluegrass (darker color and finer texture) or fine fescue (for shady areas). Do NOT add ryegrass to the mix. A typical tall fescue seeding rate is 5 to 6 pounds of seed per 1,000 square feet. Germination will normally be in 10 to 21 days with soil moisture and suitable soil temperatures. NCSU turfgrass specialists also recommend since seeds and seedlings may be damaged by some herbicide applications, fall seeded tall fescue

should not have any herbicides applied until it is extensively well rooted. Heavy weed populations such as my lawn should be controlled prior to seeding with broadleaf weed killers. Their final caution is that optimum air temperatures for tall fescue germination are 68 to 77°F and soil temperatures greater than 60°F. If tall fescue is seeded in less than ideal conditions (too cool or no soil moisture), the results may be a thin turf stand going into the winter. So, it may be better to seed a little early than waiting and seeding too late. GWYN RIDDICK is a North Carolina Certified Plantsman and registered landscape contractor.

Mom withdraws approval after daughter elopes


ear Abby My boyfriend, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kyle,â&#x20AC;? and I decided to elope two weeks ago. His mother and mine had both said theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be fine with an elopement. My sister and Kyleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brother were our witnesses â&#x20AC;&#x201C; other than that it was just us. When we told Kyleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family, they were elated and congratulated us on the spot. When I called my mother, she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say much. A couple of days later, I called to make plans to visit her, and she began telling me how many people I had â&#x20AC;&#x153;hurtâ&#x20AC;? by eloping. Mom and I have always had problems communicating and she has a long history of holding me to a higher standard than my siblings. (My sister also eloped, and there were no hard feelings then.) I am frustrated with Mom and the other members of my family who have chosen to be

hurt rather than happy for us. I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have eloped if I hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t reADVICE ceived the green light Dear from Mom Abby earlier. I â&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  have sent out a letter of apology, but I am annoyed that it takes the place of a real wedding announcement. Please help. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Baffled Albuquerque Bride Dear Baffled Bride: Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sorry you sent a letter of apology instead of a wedding announcement. You did not have to. If questioned about your elopement, all you had to say was you had the blessing of both your mothers before you did it. Your mom may be upset that she was not among the â&#x20AC;&#x153;chosen

fewâ&#x20AC;? to be present when you said â&#x20AC;&#x153;I doâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and her criticism now may be a reflection of it. You have a husband who loves you and at least one sibling with whom you are close. Treasure that and stop depending on your motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s approval, and you will be better off emotionally than you are right now. Dear Abby I have been dating â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dwightâ&#x20AC;? for a while now, and things are becoming more serious. Dwight has expressed a desire to make a trip several states away so I can meet his parents. We have even gone so far as discussing how we would handle religion if we have children. I have mixed feelings about the trip. I am both elated and terrified. Dwightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father is a minister in a small town. My parents were

not religious at all and neither am I. Dwight understands that, and he is fine with it. When I meet his parents, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure they will inevitably ask why I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t share their beliefs. How do I answer them honestly without offending them? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Nonbeliever in Tennessee

I told Keira how I feel. She told me I need to be happy for her. It has been three weeks since we last spoke, and I just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what else to say. Should I end our friendship since she obviously doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care about my feelings? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Disconnected Friend in Ohio

Dear Non-believer: I see nothing offensive about explaining to them â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as you did to me â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that your parents were not religious and they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t raise you to be.

Dear Disconnected: You say Keira is your â&#x20AC;&#x153;bestâ&#x20AC;? friend. What about HER feelings? You rejected the guy, which means (to me)

Dear Abby My best friend, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Keira,â&#x20AC;? has been dating someone I dated for a short time. Although I was the one who ended the relationship, I still feel uncomfortable with her dating him. The guy means nothing to me and I have moved on to someone else, but it still bothers me.

that in some way he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t measure up to your standards. Why begrudge Keira her happiness?

NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; U.S. airlines were late more often in July than a year earlier, but there were only three planes stuck for more than three hours, the government said Monday. The nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest airlines operated 76.7 percent of flights on time in July, down from 77.6 percent in July 2009. The on-time rate in July was better than the month before, as incidents of severe weather that delayed planes declined from June to July. The best at getting customers to their destinations on-time was Hawaiian Airlines, which

traditionally holds the top spot. Hawaiian was followed by Alaska Airlines and United Airlines, operated by parent company UAL Corp. The airline with the worst on-time rate was ExpressJet Airlines, which operates regional flights for United and Continental. Comair, Deltaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regional unit, and Deltaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main operations were only slightly better. Only three planes were stuck on the tarmac for more than three hours in July, compared with 161 a year earlier. All three were American Eagle flights leaving Chicagoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Hare

on July 23, a day when a severe thunderstorm in the area left many planes sitting on runways. All three flights were brought back to the gate and canceled. Passenger complaints to the DOT soared from a year ago, up 32.3 percent to 1,094. DOT recently began allowing e-mail complaints directly on their website, which led to a spike in complaints over the year, though gripes were down 22.9 percent from June. Most of the complaints in July were about problems with cancellations and delays.

HEART LOSER South’s play was a case of self-delusion. His trump finesse was silly since even if it won, the contract wasn’t assured. To make the slam, South needed to win the spade finesse in order to get rid of his heart loser. South should lead the queen of trumps at Trick Two but take dummy’s ace when West plays low. South then returns the queen of spades. Whatever East does, South takes three spades to discard dummy’s last heart. He loses one trump.




Today’s declarer played his slam contract like a man who sucks in his stomach when he steps on the bathroom scale. South couldn’t open 2NT, as many players would have done; in his system that bid would have promised more points. When West led the jack of hearts against six diamonds, South tried the queen from dummy. East covered, and South took the ace. South then had a heart loser but didn’t seem worried about it since he next led the ten of trumps to finesse. East produced the king and returned a heart for down one.




DAILY QUESTION You hold: S Q 9 H Q 4 D A J 7 6 4 C J 10 9 8. Your partner opens one spade, you bid two diamonds, he rebids two spades and you try 2NT. Partner then bids three hearts. What do you say? ANSWER: Your partner has six spades, four hearts and minimum values. With A K J 8 6 4, K J 9 6, 3, A 3, his second bid would have been two hearts or three spades. Nevertheless, you have three useful honors, so bid four spades. He’ll have a chance if he holds A K J 8 6 4, K J 9 6, 3, 7 6. North dealer Both sides vulnerable

Saturday, Sept. 18, 2010 CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: James Marsden, 37; Jada Pinkett Smith, 39; Aisha Tyler, 40; James Gandolfini, 49 HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Now is not the time to revert to a lifestyle or world you left behind. Let the past go. It’s forward-thinking that will get you in sync with future trends and advancement. Positive changes will be required but discipline and hard work will pay off. Your numbers are 2, 7, 12, 18, 25, 39, 42 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Get serious about what you want to accomplish. You will get help if you ask for it. Start by asking people you have done things for in the past to make suggestions or give guidance as to how to go about reaching your goals. ★★★★ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Your emotions are likely to stand in the way of an opportunity if you choose to make a fuss over nothing. This is an excellent day for travel, shopping or picking up information. Adaptability will lead to your success but stubbornness will lead to loss. ★★ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Take care of personal matters before your options are limited. A relationship with someone you work with will cause emotional duress. Rethink your strategy before getting involved with someone who is offlimits. ★★★★★ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Make constructive changes at home that will make your surroundings comfortable and user- friendly. Love and romance are in the stars and a night spent with someone special will lead to a better relationship and the opportunity to make plans for the future. ★★★ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don’t count on getting away with anything, especially when it has to do with love, family or your domestic situation. Follow through on the promises you’ve made to help an older friend or relative going through tough times. ★★★ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Discipline and hard work will pay off. Health, fitness and nutrition can all be adjusted to fit your needs. Getting into shape or correcting a bad habit you’ve fallen into will be satisfying and will enable you to make improvements that were formerly impossible. ★★★ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Help family and friends and you will bypass someone capable of being pushy and critical. A private relationship you have with someone can be enhanced late in the day if you make special plans for two. ★★★★★ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Make sure you run your ideas or plans by someone who may be offended if you don’t. It’s important to have the approval of others before you indulge in something that may affect the people around you. Be practical in order to avoid disappointment. ★★ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Remember what you used to do and enjoy. It’s the past that will help you find the right direction now. Upset at home or with friends or relatives can be expected. Try to maintain balance. ★★★★ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You may feel like being playful or even foolish, especially when it comes to affairs of the heart, but don’t let it cost you financially. Taking a risk for the sake of love can be tempting but the end result will be disappointment. ★★★ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Stick to your plans. A practical approach to what you do and the information you gather will help you make the right decision and choices. Emotional problems will arise if you get involved in a group or an organization that tampers with your beliefs. ★★★ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You can expect to get only half the information you require to make a decision. A hard- nosed attitude will enable you to finalize any unfinished business that is holding you back. ★★★ 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.

Muscle without weights


ear Dr. Donohue: I am a 68-yearold male. For a number of years, I did back exercises on a floor mat and concluded with 50 pushups. About 18 months ago, I had the first of two knee replacements. My surgeon suggested that I not do pushups on the floor in order to protect my new knee. I began to do pushups at about a 40 degree angle against the stainless-steel handrails by my swimming pool. I’ve been told that these faux pushups don’t really do much of anything for me. I would appreciate your advice on this. – S.J.



Your pushups are strengthening your chest, shoulder and behind-the-arm muscles. Continue. Don’t listen to the critics. A regular pushup is done with body face down on the floor. The hands are shoulderwidth apart. The exerciser raises the body upward by straightening the elbows with body weight supported on the hands and toes. The body should be in a straight line. Then the body is lowered to floor slowly. If you’re in good shape, don’t rest on the floor but begin the next pushup when the face and chest are still a little distance off the floor. Variations on the pushup are many. Bringing the palms closer together or moving them farther apart puts stress on














different muscles. Some find the pushup impossible to do. They can HEALTH keep their knees on Dr. Paul the floor Donohue through■■■ out the exercise to make it a little easier. Or they can do a pushup on stairs. The hands are placed on the fourth or fifth stair, and the feet are on the floor below the bottom step. Push upward as you would do a regular pushup. You can do a pushup by standing with the palms planted on a wall. Push yourself away from the wall. Weightlifting is important exercise for people of all ages. Aging shrinks muscles and strength. The only way to combat that loss is with resistance exercise (weightlifting). A pushup is weightlifting. Rising up from a chair and then sitting down again, done successively, is weightlifting. Your body is the weight lifted. Dear Dr. Donohue: I am 17 and play football. I am 6 feet tall and weigh 190 pounds. Most of my weight is muscle, but I haven’t been tested for that. I want to put on 15 more pounds, but I don’t want it to be fat. How do I do this? – R.M. You have to have a smattering of nutrition

knowledge. A teacher at your high school can help you. For an active, big athlete like you, a daily intake of 4,000 to 5,000 calories would be a reasonable estimate. You have to add around 400 more calories a day. Fifty percent of those calories ought to be carbohydrate calories – breads, pastas, fruits and vegetables. Twenty-five percent are protein calories. That’s more protein than recommended for the average person. Nuts, beans, meats, fish, eggs and poultry are the best protein sources. The rest of your calories can come from fats, mostly good fats like olive oil and canola oil. Eat within two hours of a heavy exercise session. During those two hours, more amino acids from food (amino acids are the precursors of muscle protein) are incorporated into muscles. It would be good to have your percentage of body fat measured. Perhaps someone at your school knows how to do that. For an athlete like you, body fat should be between 12 percent and 20 percent of your total body weight. DR. DONOHUE regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

Bison stampede Central’s balanced attack crushes T.W. Andrews


48 9



High Point Central’s Tyreek Sparks (11) sprints away from T.W. Andrews’ Jamarii Milliken during Friday night’s showdown at Simeon Stadium. Sparks scored a pair of defensive touchdowns as the Bison rolled. with 8:38 still to play in the third quarter. Any hopes the Raiders had entertained of a rally had vanished. “That was phenomenal,” Central coach Wayne Jones said. “Any time the defense can score, it keeps the offense off the field, but a score’s a score. We’ll take a score any way we can get it.” The offense got it done early and often for Central (4-1), which scored on its first three possessions. A 24-yard scramble by Drew Adams set up Miller’s 30-yard field goal off

the opening drive. Andrews punted and Adams struck again on the very next play. The QB hit Derek Grant in stride at midfield and Grant made it all the way to the 1 for a 73yard romp. One play later, Adams’ soft pass to Justin Johnson made it 10-0. A third score went up before the Raiders’ defense knew what hit it. After another stop by the Bison “D” and Sparks’ 13-yard punt return, Central started first-and-10 at the Andrews 38. A 20-yard run off the option by Adams got it

to the red zone, a 16-yard pass to Grant put the ball on the 2 and Adams raced in two plays later for a 16-0 margin still with 2:06 to go in the opening quarter. “This week, Coach Jones was preaching to us to really focus, come out there and execute,” said Adams, who finished 19-for-28 for 220 yards passing and added another 40 yards on the ground. “Before the game we tried to cut down on playing around, just come out with one goal in mind. We wanted to get the win, send Ms. Johnson (Cen-

tral’s outgoing principal) out with the win since this is her last game.” It was a last Central-Andrews game for many on the sidelines – one that will provide lasting memories for the Bison. | 888-3526

HIGH POINT – The battle for High Point was decided early Friday night at Simeon Stadium. High Point Central jumped out to a 16-0 lead in the first quarter and the Bison defense made the points stand up, keeping T. Wingate Andrews out of the end zone in a 33-0 rout. The Red Raiders were unable to find their footing early on either side of the ball, and by the time they came up

with any answers, the game was well in hand. “We never got in sync. We got behind early, settled down defensively and stopped them from the second quarter on. But we were behind,” Andrews coach Rodney McKoy said. “One thing wasn’t the difference in the game. All of it has to work in cohesion, and it didn’t.” The Red Raiders fell victim to a Bison offense that strung together three scoring drives in the first 12 minutes of the contest. Drew Adams completed 16-of-22 passes for

193 yards – including a 73-yard strike to Derek Grant that set up the first of four touchdowns – in a monster first half for Central. On the flip side, Marquez Swinton found difficulty throwing the ball against a formidable secondary. He was 7-of-18 passing for 51 yards. “We didn’t hit on all cylinders and they did,” McKoy said. “They threw the ball well in the first quarter. Once we figured it out, it was too late.” The two Bison touchdowns

after the break came by way of two defensive scores by Tyreek Sparks on a 22-yard fumble and 66-yard interception return. “They came out and played hard,” Swinton said. “We’re not a come-from-behind team. We’ve got to come out here focused. As the leader of this football team, we’ve got to get back to the basics. Everybody’s got to come together. We’re going to get it together.” Andrews (2-3) will have a week off to regroup from the loss and play next Friday at Lexington.







HIGH POINT – High Point Central’s offense proved nearly unstoppable in the first half. The Bison defense flexed its muscle in the second half. Together, it made for a 33-0 victory over T. Wingate Andrews – tied for the most lopsided victory in series history for the Bison (47-14 in 1996). The big point spread came courtesy of two Tyreek Sparks touchdowns in the third quarter. “I just can’t believe it. I don’t know,” Sparks said. “The only thing that was going through my mind was, ‘Score. I’ve got to get in the end zone.’ ” Sparks enjoyed a performance usually reserved for the dreams of defensive players. On the fourth play of the third quarter, the senior defensive back scooped up a Roderick Campbell fumble and returned it 22 yards for a touchdown. A mere 72 seconds later, Sparks found himself in the end zone again. Patrolling the deep middle, he picked off a long pass by Marquez Swinton at the 34-yard line. Sparks raced left and still had a man to beat along the sideline, but he waited patiently behind teammate Aaron Leach and then turned on the speed to the end zone after Leach’s block. The 66-yard scamper and Miller’s PAT made it 33-0


erhaps the ghost of Wallace Wade and the spirit of his vaunted Iron Dukes will help the ACC erase the memories of a lost college football weekend. Last Saturday, the ACC endured a series of painful nonconference beatings. To sum up, Football Championship Subdivision power James Madison stunned Virginia Tech 21-16 in Blacksburg, while Oklahoma scored the first four times it touched the ball en route to a 47-17 rout of visiting Florida State. Ohio State cruised past Miami for a 36-24 win in Columbus, and Kansas shocked Georgia Tech 28-25 in Lawrence one week after the Jayhawks lost to North Dakota State. Yikes. But today is another day, and the ACC will buckle up those chin straps and try, try again.

Six of the seven games featuring ACC teams will be nonconference affairs. Georgia Tech visits North Carolina at noon (WXLV, Ch. 45) for the lone league matchup. Things don’t figure to get any easier for ACC teams stepping out of conference. Duke welcomes top-ranked Alabama to Durham for a nationally-televised 3:30 p.m. clash (WXLV, Ch. 45 locally). The Blue Devils stemmed the Crimson Tide Alabama 29-26 in the 1945 Sugar Bowl. Grantland Rice called that game “one of the greatest thrillers of all time.” The current Blue Devils are coming off a 54-48 loss at Wake Forest. Stopping the high-powered Crimson Tide attack could be a chore. Elsewhere, East Carolina hopes to send Virginia Tech to a third straight loss today

at 1:30 p.m., while Maryland travels to West Virginia at noon, Brigham Young goes to Florida State at 3:30 p.m., Clemson invades Auburn for a 7 p.m. battle on ESPN, and Wake heads west to tangle with Stanford at 11:15 p.m. (ESPN2 has the coverage). Realistically, the ACC could go 2-4 in those nonconference matchups and feel pretty good about things. An 0-6 mark is not out of the question. Then again, if the Blue Devils even their all-time series with Alabama at 2-2, Maryland, Clemson and Wake secure road wins over powerful foes, and the Hokies and Seminoles handle their homework, the ACC will have ample reason to walk tall. That may be easier said than done.

ALABAMA AT DUKE Who: No. 1 Alabama (2-0) at Duke (1-1) When: 3:30 p.m. (ABC, WXLV, Ch. 45 locally) Line: Alabama by 24. Series record: Alabama leads, 2-1. Last meeting: 2006, Alabama, 30-14. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at stake: The Crimson Tide â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who are coming off a victory over Penn State and face Arkansas next week in their SEC opener â&#x20AC;&#x201C; hope the return of Heisman Trophy winner Mark Ingram (knee injury) and defensive end Marcel Dareus (suspension) can prevent a letdown in their first road game of the season and avoid what surely would be the upset of the year. Key matchup: Alabama QB Greg McElroy vs. Dukeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pass defense. With so much attention on Ingram and talented backup Trent Richardson, McElroy and WR Julio Jones can prove thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more to the Tideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offense than the ground game. The Blue Devils gave up 400 total yards to an FCS team and last week allowed a Wake Forest freshman to throw for three TDs. Players to watch: Alabama: Ingram missed the first two games after having knee surgery, but the Tideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only Heisman winner was proclaimed â&#x20AC;&#x153;ready to goâ&#x20AC;? by coach Nick Saban. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bad news for a Duke defense that ranks 89th nationally against the run. Duke: QB Sean Renfree has thrown for 708 yards and six TDs in two games, but hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t faced a defense quite like Alabamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and is hoping to become the first player to lead a touchdown drive against the Tide this season.

WAKE AT STANFORD Who: No. 19 Stanford (2-0) vs. Wake Forest (2-0) When: 11:15 p.m. (ESPN2) Line: Stanford by 17. Series record: Wake Forest leads 1-0. Last meeting: 2009, Wake Forest, 24-17. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at stake: Stanford is looking to start 3-0 for the first time since 2001 and to avenge last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2417 loss at Wake Forest. The Cardinal led 17-3 before the Deamon Deacons rallied to win it on Riley Skinnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2-yard run with 2 seconds left. Key matchup: Stanford S Michael Thomas vs. Wake Forest QB Tanner Price. Thomas was the Pac-10 defensive player of the week after forcing two fumbles and returning one for a score last week against UCLA. He and the rest of the Cardinal will have their hands full with Price and a Demon Deacons offense that has scored 107 points the first two games. Players to watch: Wake Forest: WR Marshall Williams. The big-play receiver caught two touchdown passes and threw an 81-yard score to Chris Givens last week against Duke. Williams is 4 for 4 for 133 yards and one TD passing in his career. Stanford: FB/ILB Owen Marecic. The two-way starter is hard to miss as he plays almost the entire game for the Cardinal. He had two tackles and broke up a pass on defense last week against UCLA. He also scored on a 1-yard run and was the lead blocker most of the night on offense.


N.C. Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mustafa Greene (33) scores on a 31-yard touchdown run against Cincinnati during the first half of their game in Raleigh late Thursday night. The Wolfpack won 30-19 to improve to 3-0 on the season.

Wolfpack tops Cincy for first 3-0 start since 2002 RALEIGH (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Tom Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brienâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first three teams at N.C. State struggled to find momentum-building wins early and all finished with losing records. Now, with his team off to a rare strong start, the coach is just as curious as everyone else to see if this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s group really is different. Russell Wilson threw for 333 yards and three touchdowns to help the Wolfpack beat Cincinnati 30-19 on Thursday night, giving State its first 3-0 start since 2002. Jay Smith and Curtis Underwood Jr. had first-half touchdown catches, and Mustafa Greene had a 31-yard scoring run that gave State a 14-0 lead in the first quarter. The Wolfpack never trailed thanks to Wilson and a defense that pressured Zach Collaros much of the night, a welcome sign considering

But on Thursday night, Wilson played with the steady presence that made him an All-Atlantic Coast Conference quarterback as a freshman two seasons ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think, as we said all along, it was a matter of time,â&#x20AC;? Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was going to come. We were just hoping sooner rather than later, and tonight was a good night for him to get on.â&#x20AC;? Wilson completed 26 of 40 passes, including an 8-yard touchdown strike to Taylor Gentry with about 71â &#x201E;2 minutes left to make it 30-7. He also ran for 33 yards while evading the rush or keeping plays alive against the Bearcats, who could only watch as the Wolfpack piled up nearly 500 total yards. The Wolfpack finished with five sacks, hurried Collaros four times and notched a fourth-and-1 stop.

Keselowski wins pole, Johnson a career-worst 25th at Loudon

CLEMSON AT AUBURN Who: No. 16 Auburn (2-0) vs. Clemson (2-0) What: 7 p.m. (ESPN) Line: Auburn by 7. Series record: Auburn leads 33-11-2. Last meeting: 2007, Auburn, 23-20. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at stake: Both teams want to prove theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re legit after 2-0 starts. Auburn has scaled the rankings with a win over Arkansas State and a narrow escape at Mississippi State. Clemson has pounded on lesser teams North Texas and Presbyterian College. Key matchup: Clemson QB Kyle Parker against a secondary that is giving up 226 passing yards a game, ninth-worst in the Southeastern Conference. Parker directs an offense that leads the Atlantic Coast Conference in five categories, including touchdown passes and pass efficiency. Players to watch: Clemson: S DeAndre McDaniel. He should be a key in trying to slow down Auburnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dualthreat QB Cameron Newton. Newton is the SECâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s No. 2 rusher, while McDaniel leads Clemson in tackles and had eight interceptions last season. Auburn: RB Michael Dyer. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a freshman and hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t started yet, but coaches have said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ready for a bigger role.

MARYLAND AT WEST VIRGINIA Who: No. 21 West Virginia (2-0) vs. Maryland (2-0) When: Noon (ESPNU) Line: West Virginia by 11 Series record: West Virginia 23-21-2 Last meeting: 2007, West Virginia, 31-14. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at stake: Maryland hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t started 3-0 since 2001, when the Terrapins won the ACC championship in coach Ralph Friedgenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first season. Both teams are playing their first BCS opponent in 2010.

LOUDON, N.H. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Brad Keselowski crashed the party at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, winning the pole for the first race in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. Keselowski broke Juan Pablo Montoyaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s year-old qualifying record with a lap of 133.572 mph Friday to earn the top starting spot Sunday. The Penske Racing driver nudged championship contenders Clint Bowyer and Tony Stewart, who qualified second and third for the first event in the 10-race Chase. Keselowski is ranked 26th in the standings and not eligible to race for

Englandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Parry leads Austrian Open ATZENBRUGG, Austria (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; English newcomer John Parry shot a 5-under 67 to take a oneshot lead after the second round of the Austrian Open. The 23-year-old Parry is at 8 under. The chasing pack includes European Ryder Cup player Graeme McDowell, who shot a 68 for a share of second alongside Pelle Edberg and Jose Manuel Lara.

UNCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Austin meets with investigators in agent probe RALEIGH (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Investigators from the North Carolina Secretary of Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office have met with Tar Heels defensive tackle Marvin Austin as they probe whether the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sports agents laws have been broken. Christopher Lyons, Austinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attorney, confirmed that Austin met with investigators for several hours Friday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Beyond that he appeared and that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fully cooperating in the investigation, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not going to comment,â&#x20AC;? Lyons said. Liz Proctor, a spokeswoman for Secretary of State Elaine Marshall, declined to comment on the meeting.

the questions that followed both coming into the season. Still, Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t gotten too low during the struggles of the past three seasons â&#x20AC;&#x201C; was measured in his celebration after beating the Bearcats (1-2). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not a good football team, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not a great football team,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what kind of football team we are. We wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know those types of things until October.â&#x20AC;? Wilson, who had an ugly performance last week at Central Florida, looked a little more like his old self in this one. Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien predicted Wilson might struggle early in the season after he missed spring drills while playing baseball for the Wolfpack, followed by a summer playing in the Colorado Rockies organization.

Marshallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office began its review shortly after the NCAA launched an investigation into the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s football program in July. That probe initially focused on whether Austin and receiver Greg Little received improper benefits from agents, which led Marshallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office to subpoena Austin earlier this month. Violating the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s agent laws, which require agents to register and prohibit them from offering gifts before a contract is signed, can lead to criminal or civil penalties. The NCAA probe in Chapel Hill has since expanded to include possible academic misconduct involving a tutor.

the title. Only the top 12 drivers race for the championship. Only four Chase drivers qualified inside the top 10. Kyle Busch will start ninth in a Toyota and Carl Edwards rolls out 10th in a Ford. Kurt Busch, Jeff Burton and Greg Biffle grabbed the 12th through 14th positions, and Jeff Gordon qualified 17th. Denny Hamlin, the top seed in the Chase, qualified 22nd. Four-time defending series champion Jimmie Johnson qualified a career-worst 25th at Loudon. Johnson has never started lower than 23rd at New Hampshire.

DAVIDSON - After winning the first set 26-24 the High Point University volleyball team lost three straight sets, falling to Boise State on Friday.

Hokies look for nasty attitude against ECU THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer has talked more this year than ever before about the need for preseason football games in college to get a team ready for when the games count. Then the Hokies showed why. Losses to No. 3 Boise State and James Madison dashed the Hokiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; national

championship aspirations, and sent them tumbling out of the Top 25. They also have had to adjust their goals to winning the Atlantic Coast Conference, and will play what amounts to their final tuneup for that today against high-scoring East Carolina (2-0) at Lane Stadium. The Hokies last started 0-2 in 1995. That team won its next nine games and beat Texas 28-10 in the Sugar Bowl.

Scoring summary

ASHEBORO 35, TRINITY 21 ASHEBORO â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Asheboro raced to a 28-7 lead and held off Trinity for a 35-21 victory on Friday night. Rhyne Kivett completed 16 of 27 passes for 211 yards and two touchdowns for the Bulldogs, who fell to 0-5. Nathan Willett caught five passes for 106 yards and touchdowns of 13 and 49 yards for Trinity. Kivett also scored on a 4-yard run. The Bulldogs play host to Southern Guilford next week.

S. GUILFORD 28, W. GUILFORD 14 SUMNER â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Southern Guilford did all the scoring in the second half and subdued Western Guilford 28-14 on Friday. Quashan Butler caught a 46yard touchdown pass from Jamie Cunningham to put the Storm up in the third quarter. Malcolm Hayward added an insurance score on a 55-yard run. Dewarren Jefferson scored on a 45-yard fumble return, one of four turnovers forced by Southern. Another fumble recovery, early in the fourth quarter, stopped a Western drive at the Storm 15. Southern goes to Trinity on Friday.


Ledfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Justin Wilder (25) looks to elude West Davidsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Davis Welborn during Friday nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game in Wallburg. The Green Dragons worked overtime for a 13-10 victory.


WALLBURG â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Ledford and West Davidsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s football teams are coached by former baseball coaches, and they engaged in what resembled a pitcherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s duel Friday night in Wallburg. When Westâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s James McCandies finally got something to hit, he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t miss. McCandies scrambled for a 3-yard touchdown run on the last play of regulation, then scored on another 3-yard run in overtime to stake the Dragons to a 13-10 nonconference victory over the Panthers. The loss, which dropped Ledford to 1-3, negated another impressive performance by running back De Greene. The junior rumbled for 177 yards on 31 carries, providing the bulk of the Panthersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; offense. Ledford coach Chris Adams was clearly disappointed to walk away with a loss. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our defense played lights-out,â&#x20AC;? Adams said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Offensively theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a really good package, and our defense played hard and stayed in there.â&#x20AC;? Both teams struggled to get much going in the first half and headed to the locker rooms in a scoreless deadlock. Ledfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best scoring opportunity came on a 14-play drive that took over nine minutes off the clock, but the Panthers stalled at the West 27. The Dragons had a golden opportunity later in the second quarter after a shanked punt gave them possession at the Panthersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 33, but quarterback James McCandies fumbled on second down and Tola Odedere recovered to kill the threat. The Panthers chipped away for 106 yards and eight first downs in the half, but couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

THOMASVILLE â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Thomasville may have needed a little time to get used to playing at Cushwa Stadium for the first time this season, but once the Bulldogs did, the rest of the night was home sweet home. Quin Rileyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two touchdowns helped Thomasville overcome a sluggish start on both sides of the ball in a 27-7 victory against the Davie County War Eagles, improving the Bulldogsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; record to 5-0. THS trailed for much of the first half before Riley and the defense found their rhythm, helping the Bulldogs defeat a War Eagles squad that had plenty of offensive weapons. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re dangerous and they have great skill people,â&#x20AC;? THS assistant coach Dickie Cline said of the War Eagles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They did a great job in the first half and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to simulate all of that. Our defense settled down and did a great job, and offensively we were able to control the clock. That was the

FIRST ASSEMBLY 68, HPCA 0 CONCORD â&#x20AC;&#x201C; High Point Christian Academy held First Assembly to just seven points in the first quarter, but saw the hosts score 28 in the second quarter en route to a 68-0 win in the NCISAA Central Piedmont Football Conference contest. The Cougars fell to 1-4 overall and 0-2 in the conference. HPCA was initially slated to play host to Northside Christian next Saturday in the first-year varsity programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first-ever Homecoming football game. When Northsideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team disbanded, however, the Cougars instead ended up with a road game next Friday at Charlotteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Providence Day.

key, keeping the ball out of their hands. We played good, hard-nosed, physical football.â&#x20AC;? Davie County made an early statement that the War Eagles came ready to win. Led by quarterback Carson Herndon, Davie marched 80 yards in nine plays on its first drive, facing little resistance from the Bulldogs defense. Herndon floated a perfect pass down the far sideline to receiver Joe Watson on third down-and-six from the War Eaglesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 34, keeping the drive alive. Four plays later, the duo connected again, this time for a touchdown. Thomasville caught a break on its opening possession after Andam Smith picked off a Sam Nelson pass but fumbled the ball right back to Sharaun Mouzone at the Bulldogsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 28. THS parlayed the good fortune into a 32yard Lawson Hodges field goal with 2:30 remaining in the first quarter. The Bulldogs finally surged ahead midway through second quarter on the heels of a 10 play, 64-yard drive. Riley broke free on fourth and two from the War Eaglesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 30 for a touchdown, giving THS its first lead.

translate that into points. West managed 96 yards before the break but never got closer than the 33 yard line. Greene broke the gridlock with a 23-yard run on a counter play on fourth and three midway through the fourth quarter. The touchdown was set up by a bad West punt that gave the Panthers possession at the West 30. But West fought back. After turning it over on downs at the Ledford 11 with two minutes left, the Dragon defense forced a three-andout and took over at the West 46 with under a minute to play. McCandies had two crucial completions to Jordan Cameron on the drive, and a Ledford personal foul helped out. McCandiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;12-yard keeper set up first and goal at the three with seven seconds left, and he scored on a draw on the last play of regulation to force overtime. West won the toss in the extra period and elected to play defense first, then stuffed the Panthers on third and goal from the 5. Zach Gilliamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s field goal gave the Panthers a momentary 10-7 lead. But after Ledfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defense came up with a stop for a loss on Westâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first offensive play, the Panthers were called for pass interference on the next play to give the Dragons first and goal at the 5. After a two-yard gain, McCandies ran a quarterback sneak and fell into the end zone with the winning score.

Citigroup to shed student loans BOSTON (AP) – Citigroup Inc. said Friday it is selling its student loan business and about $32 billion in related assets to Discover Financial Services and the student lender Sallie Mae, Citi’s latest move to focus on its core consumer banking business. The big banking company has been looking for a buyer for its 80 percent stake in the Student Loan Corp. for some time as it refocuses it operations. Citi was one of the hardest hit banks by the recession and credit crisis. Citigroup Inc. said Friday it will take a loss of about $500 million loss on the deal in this year’s third quarter. Discover has agreed to



Consumer prices rose in August WASHINGTON – Consumer prices posted a small rise in August, but outside of a big jump in volatile gasoline prices, inflation was essentially flat. Consumer prices edged up 0.3 percent in August, matching the July increase, the Labor Department said Friday. Core inflation, which excludes food and energy, showed no increase in August.

Consumer mood drives down oil NEW YORK – Benchmark crude oil fell slightly after a new report showed consumer sentiment moderated in September from the previous month. Oil for October delivery fell $1.19 to $73.38 a barrel in midday trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

Caterpillar sales rise across globe NEW YORK – Caterpillar Inc. said Friday that its worldwide machine sales leaped 37 percent in August, led by surging sales in Latin and North America. The results, announced in a regulatory filing, highlight a shift in the world’s appetite for construction and mining equipment. Though the sales growth rate slowed in Asia, it surged in Latin America and picked up slightly in the United States and Canada. Sales in Latin America jumped 57 percent in August over the same month a year ago. ENTERPRISE NEWS SERVICE REPORTS


pay $600 million for the Citi stake in the Student Loan Corp. and will also acquire $4.2 billion of private student loans. Sallie Mae will get $28 billion of assets, adding another 1.3 million new customers. The complex deal comes amid rapid change in the student loan market, after a law this year consolidated the federal student loan program and largely cut private lenders out of the process. By making loans directly, and ending federal guarantees of private student loans, the government hopes to save money. That has left private lenders seeking alternatives to making loans, and trying to sustain their business

by acting as servicers collecting payments on loans the government makes. New York-based Citi, meanwhile, has been unraveling the one-stop financial services marketplace model it created in the late 1990s. It split its noncore assets from its primary operations like consumer banking and is now selling those assets it doesn’t consider vital to its business. Citi split itself into two parts last year – Citicorp and Citi Holdings, the division holding riskier assets including the mortgage-backed securities that undermined the bank and other financial institutions.

SEC backs new bank rules WASHINGTON (AP) – Federal regulators voted Friday to propose new rules that could make it harder for financial firms to disguise their level of debt. The Securities and Exchange Commission is proposing expanded disclosure requirements for banks’ practice of temporarily trimming their debt at the end of quarters to make their financial statements appear stronger. The practice is legal but regulators say it can give investors a distorted picture of a bank’s debt and level of risk. The SEC proposal would require financial firms to report detailed information on their short-term borrowing every quarter. Firms currently are required to disclose that borrowing only once a year. The SEC commissioners voted 5-0 at a brief meeting to propose the

new rules and open them to public comment for 60 days. They could be formally adopted them sometime later, possibly with changes. Lehman Brothers used so-called repurchase agreements as an accounting trick in the months before its collapse two years ago into the biggest bankruptcy in U.S. history. The demise of the Wall Street titan triggered a panic in financial markets. Lehman had put together complex transactions that allowed the firm to sell billions in mortgage securities at the end of a quarter – wiping them off its balance sheet when regulators and shareholders were examining it – and then to quickly buy them back. The repurchase agreements, detailed in a report issued in March by a court-appointed examiner, were known as Repo 105.

Fed: Americans’ wealth fell in spring WASHINGTON (AP) – Americans’ wealth shrank in the spring for the first time since early 2009 as financial turmoil eroded stock portfolios. The Federal Reserve says household net worth fell 2.7 percent – or $1.5 trillion – in the April-to-June quarter. The decline left Americans’ net worth at $53.5 trillion. Shriveled stock portfolios were the biggest force dragging down wealth. Wall Street was shaken by

fears over Europe’s debt crisis. Since then, stocks have risen. Net worth is the value of assets such as homes, checking accounts and investments, minus debts like mortgages and credit cards. Before last quarter’s decline, net worth had been growing slowly for four straight quarters. Americans’ net worth would have to rise an additional 23 percent to revisit its re-recession peak of $65.8 trillion.

Meager finish keeps stocks rally going NEW YORK (AP) – Stocks gave up most of their gains to end slightly higher Friday, extending a September rally that has slowed as the month wore on. The Dow Jones industrial tacked on 13 points, while the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index edged up less than a point. Both traded close to the breakeven level all day. The Dow and other major indexes logged their thirdstraight weekly advance. The market started out on an up note following surprisingly strong profit news late Thursday from technology leaders Oracle Corp. and Research in Motion Ltd., which makes BlackBerrys. Technology and industrial shares were broadly higher, though energy companies were weak following a drop in crude oil. A decline in a measure of consumer confidence from the University of Michigan/Reuters also kept a lid on buying. Gold set another record and Treasury prices edged higher in a sign that investors remain cautious. The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index, the measure used most widely by professional investors, briefly edged above a technical trading threshold, but not enough to convince analysts that the market is ready to move sharply higher. Stocks have been on a nearly unbroken upward march in September, driving the S&P up 7.3 percent.

UAL, Continental shareholders OK deal NEW YORK (AP) โ€“ Shareholders of United and Continental airlines voted Friday to approve a combination of their companies that would create the worldโ€™s biggest airline and could have far-reaching effects on where they fly and how much they charge passengers. The companies expect the $3 billion stock swap to close in the next two weeks after tying up loose ends. Regulators in the U.S. and Europe have already signaled approval. At both companies, the vote for the deal topped 98 percent. With the voting over, the real work begins, including combining two separate groups of highly unionized workers, merging reservations systems

and putting new paint jobs on the planes. It likely will be some time before passengers notice much difference when they fly Continental or United. The companies expect it will be at least a year before federal authorities approve their request to fly as one airline, which will be called United and painted in Continentalโ€™s colors. Shareholders of United parent UAL Corp. will own 55 percent of the new company, to be called United Continental Holdings Inc. and based in Unitedโ€™s hometown of Chicago. It will be led by Continental Airlines Inc. CEO Jeff Smisek. The UAL acquisition of Continental will combine Unitedโ€™s strength in the

Midwest, the West Coast and across the Pacific with Continentalโ€™s presence in Texas, the East Coast and routes to Europe and Latin America. The airlines hope that by forging a larger network, they will attract more top-dollar corporate travelers while reducing costs. Smisek hinted at layoffs Friday, saying there will be overlapping jobs when the two combine, but he did not give any numbers. Thereโ€™s also the matter of a lawsuit by several dozen passengers who claim that a United-Continental combination will lead to fewer flights and higher fares. A federal judge in San Francisco is scheduled to hear closing arguments Friday on a request to block the deal.

NYC storm leaves 14-mile path of destruction



19-year-old pleads guilty in NYC blast NEW YORK – A 19year-old pleaded guilty Friday to an attempted arson at a New York City Starbucks coffee shop in a pre-dawn blast that was inspired by the movie “Fight Club.” Kyle Shaw also pleaded guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon in a deal that will send him to prison for 31⁄2 years when he is sentenced Nov. 16. He faced a minimum 15 years and maximum 25.

White House: Obama will visit Des Moines DES MOINES, Iowa – The White House says President Barack Obama will visit Iowa and two other states in late September as part of his effort to focus attention on middle class families. The White House announced Friday that Obama would hold an event Sept. 29 in Des Moines. He also plans a stop that day in Richmond, Va., and will visit Albuquerque, N.M., on Sept. 28.


Lawyer: Woman stabbed man over feet insult

Residents in the Park Slope neighborhood in the Brooklyn borough of New York circle around a car crushed by a fallen tree, Thursday. A brief but severe storm swept through New York City, uprooting trees and damaging cars.

EVERETT, Wash. – Prosecutors in Washington state say an 18year-old woman stabbed a 19-year-old man for teasing her that her feet smelled. The Herald of Everett reports the man was found by police with a steak knife sticking out of his back, buried a few inches in. Officials say he’ll recover. Trouble started when Dallas Amber Smith was drinking and hanging out with friends and was challenged to do a back flip. When she took off her shoes to do the back flip, the teasing started.

Texas man who duped Army gets 6 months DALLAS – The Texas man who earlier this year tricked the Army into allowing him to join the reserves as a noncommissioned officer has been sentenced to six months in prison and a bad conduct discharge, an Army spokeswoman said.

destructive,” he said. The storm was part of a line that rippled across much of the Northeast before completing its run in New York City during the Thursday evening rush hour in a matter of minutes. It caught nearly everyone off guard, including commuters heading home and parents picking up children from after-school activities. It snapped trees and scattered them like bowling pins, downing power lines and crushing vehicles, including a car in Queens where Iline Levakis and her husband, Billy Levakis were parked. The couple, from Pennsylvania, had just switched seats in the car, said a former business partner, Peter Markos. She was killed; he survived. “There are lots of stories of people who came very close to being hit by a big tree and killed, but fortunately there was only one,” Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Friday.

Deputies: Dad threatened kids who teased daughter SANFORD, Fla. (AP) – A father furious because his 13-yearold daughter who suffers from cerebral palsy had been bullied stormed onto a school bus and threatened the children who teased her, deputies in Florida said. The girl had to be hospitalized because of stress from the confrontation. The father, James Willie Jones, was arrested

Thursday after he stormed onto the bus two weeks ago and later released on bail. He hopes to apologize to the children, said his attorney, Natalie Jackson. “The little girl was scared to go to school. There has to be something done about school bullying,” Jackson said. Jones boarded the school bus Sept. 3 because several boys were allegedly bullying

Few in Vancouver are angry at acid hoax woman VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) – The scars on her face were real, but her story about being splashed with acid was a horrific hoax.

Helicopter filming Audi test crashes on Pikes Peak DENVER (AP) – A helicopter filming a driverless Audi on a test run crashed Friday about a mile below the summit of Pikes Peak, injuring the four people onboard, the sheriff’s office said. The crash happened sometime before 7:30 a.m., a few yards from the winding roadway leading to the top of the mountain, which is about 14,110 feet above sea level. El Paso County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Teresa Murphy said the pilot suffered critical injuries and was taken to a hospital in a second helicopter. Murphy said the three other passengers suffered in-

NEW YORK (AP) – A brief but vicious storm that churned through New York City left a 14mile path of destruction from Brooklyn to Queens, toppling trees, peeling away roofs and killing a woman in a car who had just swapped seats with her husband. The National Weather Service sought Friday to determine whether the fury of wind and rain that hit the previous evening was a tornado. City officials said the storm hopped across New York Harbor from Staten Island and barreled uninterrupted from Park Slope in Brooklyn all the way to the Bayside neighborhood in Queens. Parks Commissioner Adrian Benepe estimated the storm destroyed more than 1,000 trees. He said forestry experts were finding damage patterns consistent with twisting winds, rather than more typical sideways winds. “This is a very brief storm that was extremely

juries that were not lifethreatening. No names were released. Murphy said the cause of the crash is unknown and that the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board will lead the investigation. Brad Stertz, a spokesman for German automaker Audi, said the helicopter was carrying a crew that was filming a driverless Audi on the road to the summit of the mountain. He said the test drive for the car Friday was part of a project with Stanford University, which helped create the technology for the driverless vehicle.

his daughter, according to the sheriff’s office report. He told deputies the boys placed an open condom on his daughter’s head, smacked her on the back of her head, twisted her ear and shouted rude comments at her, the report said. Video surveillance from the bus shows Jones asking his daughter to point out the students accused of harassing her.

Jones is heard on the video threatening those who bully his daughter, and he also threatens the bus driver. Jones then steps off the bus. Some children are heard laughing. Jones told deputies he complained to Seminole County school administrators in the past but nothing had been done to help the girl, Jackson said.


Carty finds faith after fame G

etting a book nationally published and distributed is a feat few have accomplished. You might think that appearing on the television reality show â&#x20AC;&#x153;Survivorâ&#x20AC;? would have made it easier to get the attention of publishers, but that was not the case. In fact, High Pointer Austin Carty says that his â&#x20AC;&#x153;Survivorâ&#x20AC;? image may even worked against him. Perhaps it was because of such a contrast between his faith-based book and the often ruthless â&#x20AC;&#x153;who can get who firstâ&#x20AC;? tactics that prevail in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Survivor.â&#x20AC;? Cartyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book, â&#x20AC;&#x153;High Points and Lows: Life, Faith, and Figuring it All Outâ&#x20AC;? published by Penquin Plume made its debut last January. I ABOUT thought it TOWN would be Mary fun to talk Bogest with him after his whirlwind tour of book signings and media interviews. I see Austin and his dad Warren several times a week at the gym where we both work out. As I try to work off those pounds on the treadmill, I get a good glimpse of the comings and goings at the gym. I have often been impressed by the father-son relationship that I have witnessed while on the treadmill, so it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t surprise me when I read the dedication page on Austinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book. It said simply, â&#x20AC;&#x153;For my dad, Seadog, who was always man enough to tell me he loved me.â&#x20AC;? Warrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nickname â&#x20AC;Ś Seadog (a story in itself) ... so guess what I will call him at the gym from now on? â&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013; 

He also was in one of the first graduating classes of High Point College (now HPU). â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of my earliest memories is of sitting in my grandfatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s den, on a tiny wicker chair, studying him as he towered over me in his burgundy leather recliner. The fire beside us made the gray stubble on his face glow red,â&#x20AC;? Austin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was about 5 years old, and we were having what he liked to call a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;man-to-manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; chat. During these talks, I would drink Coke from a Donald Duck sippy cup and watch my grandfatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s every move. The afternoon I remember the most is when my grandfather got really serious with me. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Will you make me a promise? Will you promise me that when you grow up you will believe in something bigger than yourself?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You mean like a six-year-old,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I answered. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A big toothy grin spread across his face. He learned forward and patted my head. In a voice scarcely above a whisper, he said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;One day you will understand what I mean.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? That day has come for Austin, and his grandfather would be proud just as all of High Point is proud of our native son. I asked Austin about High Point. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought about living in New York or Los Angeles for about two minutes, but I knew that my hometown of High Point is where I want to live.â&#x20AC;? My final question to Austin, â&#x20AC;&#x153;What is your message?â&#x20AC;? He pondered for a moment and said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;In discovering my vision of belief, I discovered how beautiful faith really is.â&#x20AC;?


Austin Carty (left) dedicated his book, â&#x20AC;&#x153;High Points and Lows,â&#x20AC;? to his dad, Seadog (Warren), â&#x20AC;&#x153;who was always man enough to tell me that he loved me.â&#x20AC;? As I looked over the book from this writer, it seemed to me that his simple phrase of the dedication was almost a synopsis of Austinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book, which is described as a compilation of moving essays that address faith. The message in the essays are uplifting and even though Austin thought his target readership probably would be between the ages of 18-34, he has found that his exclamations of faith and love have been accepted universally. I will give you an insight later in this column. Before I go any farther, I should mention that this is actually Austinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second book. He selfpublished his first book, which was a novel that explored a mother-son relationship. He dedicated that book to his mother Mausty. Austin and I recounted the ominous beginning of the book tour. The book release party (which I was invited to) in High Point had to be canceled because of the

big 2010 snowstorm â&#x20AC;Ś who could forget that. Then it began in full swing, first making appearances in Florida, the Southern states, the West Coast, etc. Recently, I had a chance to chat so Austin could tell me about the â&#x20AC;&#x153;high points and lowsâ&#x20AC;? of his tour and his foray into the life of an author. Perhaps, like you, I imagined that having a book published by a label such as Penguin would bring a glamorous tour â&#x20AC;Ś nice hotels and good food. Austin laughed as I posed this question. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was nothing glamorous about it,â&#x20AC;? he told me. There were lots of drive-in motels and, I imagine, lots of fast food. Although the tour was at times fast-paced and like most authors, sometimes there were few people at his book signings. Austin embraced the opportunity to talk on college campuses. He found that many of the students could iden-

tify with the faith-based challenges that he faced, that his trials and jubilations resonated also with them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of students grow up with religion and faith and then develop a lurking cynicism. Many students told me that, in telling my story, I was telling theirs,â&#x20AC;? Austin said. You may remember reading that Austin graduated Summa Cum Laude from High Point University last December with a degree in English literature. He had returned to college after dropping out in 2006 to self-publish his novel, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Somewhere Beyond Here.â&#x20AC;? During his tour in Mississippi, he was able to visit the grave of one of his favorite writers, William Faulkner. Other highlights included appearing on the nationally and internationally syndicated â&#x20AC;&#x153;700 Club,â&#x20AC;? the numerous media interviews and speaking at the famed evangelistic minister


Rick Warrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Saddleback Church in California. Now to the personal stuff. Austin and his long-time girlfriend April Nicholson will be tying the knot today. Congratulations! Austin also has accepted a teaching position at Northern Guilford High School. Those will be very fortunate 10th- and 11th-graders! He joins his sister Elizabeth, also a HPU graduate, thanks to the scholarship she received after winning the Miss Teen USA North Carolina title. Elizabeth is now teaching special education at Pilot Elementary. All of this and Austin still has time for motivational speaking. He is often a speaker for multiple sclerosis, a cause that is felt deep within his heart since his mother was diagnosed years ago. Now for the blurb that I promised. Many of you probably remember Austinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grandfather Dr. Cyrus Leighton Gray, who was the first radiologist in High Point.

‘Survival gardens’ can help save cash

COOL ROOFS Shades of white promoted to conserve energy




any cash-strapped families are turning to “survival gardens” to help dig out from the recession. These differ from the usual vegetable patch by delivering high yields from small spaces and producing wholesome foods that store well. Probably just as important: They can be done on the cheap. “They were called ‘victory gardens’ during the world wars because they helped ease shortages,” said Chris Becker, a regional agent with the Alabama Cooperative Extension Service in Florence. “We call them ‘survival gardens’ now because they help families cut spending.” The term is part of a larger do-it-yourself trend toward growing more backyard veggies and eating locally grown food. Survival gardens are used mainly to raise the kind of produce that you can grow for less than

EW YORK – Herb Van Gent points his infrared gun at a square of still unpainted gray shingle and clicks the trigger. He gets an immediate temperature reading: 143 degrees and rising. Then he aims it 5 feet away to a square of roof I have just painted: 98 degrees and decreasing. He smiles. “A 45-degree difference and we’re only on the first coat,” he says. That means it also will be cooler inside the building, he says, saving energy. Its 11 a.m. and we are on the roof of a New York retirement home, rolling out thick, shiny white paint. Van Gent is one of a volunteer group that has come up here to paint the roof as part of a city-sponsored “cool roof” program. The idea of painting roofs white is catching on across the country; Energy Secretary

Steven Chu has said it could contribute to the fight against global warming. “Cool roofs are one of the quickest and lowest-cost ways we can reduce our global carbon emissions and begin the hard work of slowing climate change,” said Chu in July, while announcing that Department of Energy buildings would be painted white wherever possible. While white roofs keep homes cool in summer by letting less heat in, they have little impact on winter heating bills, according to the Cool Roof Rating Council, a nonprofit group created in 1998 to research and implement the technology. That’s generally because the sun is less intense in winter, the group said, and less important as a heat source. The roofs do not let any more heat escape than other roofs, it said.

SMART MOVES: How to narrow your search in a crowded field. 3R

To place a classified ad, call (336) 888-3555


Begin home search with end in mind I

f you are in the market for a new home, how many properties should you look at before making an offer? The answer is: as many as it takes to find the one that is right for you. The number of properties you view will depend on how much thought you have put into your actual needs. Many first-time home buyers set out on their quest to find the perfect home without first deciding what the perfect home looks like. To determine what home best suits the needs of you and your family, you need to consider many factors, such as: Is your family growing? Are you planning to have more children? Or do you have children who may be moving out on their own in the not-too-distant future? Another consideration is your lifestyle. Do you like to spend time out working in or entertaining in your yard? Is privacy

important to you? Asking these questions up front can help you to save a lot of time in your search for the perfect new REAL ESTATE home. Many years ago, I worked Ken with a first-time Wall homebuyer who ■■■ insisted that they ONLY wanted to look at homes with a fenced backyard. After looking at several properties with fenced backyards that did not suit their needs, we began to run out of homes to view. Then, one day, the buyer called me to say that he had seen a house while driving home from work that he would like to take a look at. I set up the appointment and showed the property. This one actually ended up being the perfect home for him and his family.

One thing I quickly noticed about the home, though, was that it did NOT have a fence. When I questioned the buyer about this, he said, “Oh, that’s

The number of properties you view will depend on how much thought you have put into your actual needs. OK, the main reason I wanted a fence was because I wanted the privacy when I’m in the backyard, and this property is surrounded by trees, so I have all the privacy I need.” From this experience, I learned that it’s important to ask the right questions when determining

which property will best suit a homebuyer’s needs. So, before you begin your home search, your first step is to speak with a local Realtor. Spend time telling them all the features that are important to you in your new home. Go into details on why these features are important to you. This will help your Realtor to put together a list of properties for you to view, taking into consideration your present, and future, needs.

Tips help narrow your choice in a crowded field N

owadays, there’s a plethora of homes for sale in many neighborhoods, especially in areas where foreclosures and short sales abound. Also, inventories are mounting in communities where many older boomers want to liquidate their properties in order to downsize. “Simply stated, supply and demand are out of balance in many places,” says Fred Meyer, a real estate broker and consumer advocate. Having plenty of choices is a blessing for homebuyers, but only if they screen through their options thoughtfully, Meyer says. He encourages all buyers, and especially those who feel overwhelmed by the sorting process, to carefully consider their housing preferences before starting to shop for a home. Meyer contends that when sorting through the housing options for their clients, too few real estate agents use the advanced screening tools available through the Multiple Listing Service. “For example, your agent can use this function to find a house with a waterfront view, one that has cathedral ceilings, or one built less than 10 years ago,” he says. Homebuyers searching for the right place in an inventory-rich neighborhood can also do their own advanced screening through the Internet. One widely used site, originated by the

National Association of Realtors, is com. Through this site, you could narrow your search, for example, solely to homes with hardwood floors or disability features. Here are a few other SMART MOVES pointers for those lookEllen ing for a property in Martin an inventory-saturated ■■■ neighborhood: • Pre-screen on the basis of square footage. Granted, mega-sized houses have lost a lot of their luster in the current market. But “price per square foot is still a very key factor,” says John Rygiol, an independent real estate broker who works solely with purchasers and takes no listings. Rygiol says it’s not uncommon to find that a small home can cost significantly more per square foot than a midsized property in the same community. Yet over time, the midsized home should gain value more quickly and be easier to sell. “Sometimes the square footage isn’t shown on the MLS listing. In that case, ask your agent to take measurements for you,” he says. • Factor in bathroom count when deciding which properties to visit. Years ago, it was common for an

entire family to share just one or two bathrooms in a home. No one protested the need to take turns sharing the same bathroom for a shower or a bath. But as Rygiol points out, the ideal situation nowadays is for every member of the family to have his or her own bathroom. Of course, homes in older communities are likely to have fewer bathrooms than those in recently built subdivisions. But even if you’ve targeted an older community, it’s likely you can find a place that has a bathroom incorporated in an addition. • Consider a home’s context before heading out to see it. One valuable online tool for placing homes within their neighborhood context is Google Maps, where “you can quickly see if a house you’re considering is set on a busy cross-through street or a quiet dead-end road,” Rygiol says. He says you should also take note of the direction that a home’s front faces. “Generally, homebuyers have a preference for a place that faces south rather than north. That means that through the years, the south-facing house could gain more value,” Rygiol says. • Make sure the home you buy has “good bones.” Architects know that a house that is well designed, structurally sound

and energy efficient has considerable hidden value. They say such a home has “good bones.” Such a property typically gives buyers more for their money than do homes that are superficially appealing but have fundamental issues. In a buyer’s market purchasers can often get an excellent price on a home with good bones whose only problems are superficial, Rygiol says. Making sure the place you buy was solidly built is especially important if you’re determined to own a home built fewer than 10 years ago, according to Rygiol, who says that “during the real estate boom, and especially after 2000 but before the recession hit, a lot of the new construction involved shoddy workmanship.” • Take your lifestyle needs into account when comparing floor plans. When shopping for a home, you should trust your instincts about how a place feels to you after you’ve passed through the front door, says Sid Davis, a real estate broker and author of “A Survival Guide for Buying a Home.” “A good floor plan is critical to your quality of life. The rooms are well laid out and all in proportion. In addition, they fit well with your lifestyle,” Davis says. TO CONTACT Ellen James Martin, e-mail her at ellenjamesmartin

US homes lost to foreclosure up 25 percent for year LOS ANGELES (AP) – Lenders took back more homes in August than in any month since the start of the U.S. mortgage crisis. The increase in home repossessions came even as the number of properties entering the foreclosure process slowed for the seventh month in a row, foreclosure listing firm RealtyTrac Inc. said last week. In all, banks repossessed 95,364 properties last month, up 3 percent from July and an

increase of 25 percent from August 2009, RealtyTrac said. August makes the ninth month in a row that the pace of homes lost to foreclosure has increased on an annual basis. The previous high was in May. Banks have been stepping up repossessions to clear out their backlog of bad loans with an eye on eventually placing the foreclosed properties on the market, but they can’t afford to simply dump the properties on the market.

Concerns are growing that the housing market recovery could stumble amid stubbornly high unemployment, a sluggish economy and faltering consumer confidence. U.S. home sales have collapsed since federal homebuyer tax credits expired in April. That’s one reason fewer than one-third of homes repossessed by lenders are on the market, said Rick Sharga, a senior vice president at RealtyTrac. “These (properties) are going to come to market, but very

slowly because nobody wants to overwhelm a soft buyer’s market with too much distressed inventory for fear of what it would do for house prices,” he said. As a result, lenders are putting off initiating the foreclosure process on homeowners who have missed payments, letting borrowers stay in their homes longer. The number of properties receiving an initial default notice – the first step in the foreclosure process – slipped 1 percent

last month from July, but was down 30 percent versus August last year, RealtyTrac said. Initial defaults have fallen on an annual basis the past seven months. They peaked in April 2009. Still, the number of homes scheduled to be sold at auction for the first time increased 9 percent from July and rose 2 percent from August last year. If they don’t sell at auction, these homes typically end up going back to the lender.
