Company to bring 68 jobs to city

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 materials.3acomposites.com. email@example.com | 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
‘If this Texas company buys the (mall), everyone is a winner; we’re thrilled.’ Latimer Alexander City Coucilman want, will require the preparation of a solid business/financial plan with a very clear and solid revenue stream. 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

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.” firstname.lastname@example.org | 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. email@example.com | 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 rate has improved by more than 35 percent since the late 1980s. The mortality report showed the number of

A sixth person was arrested later in the day. The Vatican said the pope was calm despite the arrests and planned no changes to his schedule. But the arrests overshadowed a major address by Benedict to British politicians, businessmen and cultural leaders about the need to restore faith and ethics to public policymaking.

Opinion Page Editor: Vince Wheeler firstname.lastname@example.org (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.
The High Point Enterprise is committed to this community ... and always will serve it by being an intensely local newspaper of excellent quality every day.

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.

In the world ye shall have the field indignantly, he tribulation: but be of good cheer; smiled and went back to I have overcome the world. work. 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.

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.

BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER
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.”

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– â– â– Environmental Research and Education has provided some guidelines. NCSU Professor and Extension Specialist, Grady Miller, says, â€œOptimum air temperatures for tall fescue germination are 68 to 77Â°F and soil temperatures greater than 60Â°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€?
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 77Â°F and soil temperatures greater than 60Â°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€œKyle,â€? and I decided to elope two weeks ago. His mother and mine had both said theyâ€™d be fine with an elopement. My sister and Kyleâ€™s brother were our witnesses â€“ other than that it was just us. When we told Kyleâ€™s family, they were elated and congratulated us on the spot. When I called my mother, she didnâ€™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€œhurtâ€? 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€™t have eloped if I hadnâ€™t reADVICE ceived the green light Dear from Mom Abby earlier. I â– â– â– have sent out a letter of apology, but I am annoyed that it takes the place of a real wedding announcement. Please help. â€“ Baffled Albuquerque Bride Dear Baffled Bride: Iâ€™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€œchosen
fewâ€? to be present when you said â€œI doâ€? â€“ 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€™s approval, and you will be better off emotionally than you are right now. Dear Abby I have been dating â€œDwightâ€? 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€™s father is a minister in a small town. My parents were

Dear Non-believer: I see nothing offensive about explaining to them â€“ as you did to me â€“ that your parents were not religious and they didnâ€™t raise you to be.
Dear Disconnected: You say Keira is your â€œbestâ€? friend. What about HER feelings? You rejected the guy, which means (to me)
Dear Abby My best friend, â€œKeira,â€? 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.
