ing advanced learners in kindergarten through fifth grade at Southwest Elementary for the last three years. The award carries a $1,500 prize, and she will represent teachers across the district at various local and state events. She said she developed “a real addiction to the classroom” after a professional background in other fields. “What an honor to represent the teachers of Guilford County and have an opportunity to represent a message of hope,” said

Roberts, who has 17 years of teaching experience. “We have the very best staff, the best PTO and the best students anyone could ever hope for.” In addition to being named the top teacher, Roberts was named the elementary school teacher of the year. Deanna Wynn, a science teacher at Southern Middle School, was named middle school teacher of the year and Darren Corbett, an English teacher at Grimsley High School, was named high school teacher of the

year. Jennifer Caligan, a fifth-grade science and social studies teacher at Nathanael Greene Elementary School, and Joan Kimmel, an English teacher at Weaver Academy, were the other finalists for Teacher of the Year. Keels, principal at Triangle Lake Montessori since 2006, was previously assistant principal at Allen Jay Middle School. “What an honor and a blessing. ... Thank you to my staff, students and par-

End of summer travel season causes gas prices to fall BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

TRIAD – Motorists in the Triad can breathe a sigh of relief as fluctuating gas prices fell for the second week in a row and are expected to continue to decline. The end of summer travel has caused oil prices to drop along with other economic indicators, according to AAA officials. The association predicts that

prices will continue to fall another 5 cents to 10 cents over the next few weeks. “We’re coming out of the summer driving season, so there’s always a drop in demand,” said Brendan Byrnes, public relations manager for AAA Carolinas. “The gas prices are reflective of that low demand.” While some aspects of the economy have displayed an improvement in recent months, such as


automobile sales, Byrnes said the overall sluggish recovery continues to keep oil prices down. “Although there are some positive economic reports out there, the fact of the matter is that the state still has an unemployment rate over 11 percent,” he said. “There are still people that aren’t driving to work every day and taking those day trips.” “Our recovery is probably happening, but it’s still very uneven,” added Mike McCully, associate professor of economics at High Point University. “The other factor that seems to be influencing prices is

there are very high supplies of oil right now. We haven’t had any supply disruptions from hurricanes so far this year.” The holiday season is approaching, but Byrnes said it shouldn’t have a startling effect on prices this year. “Prices traditionally don’t go up too much over the winter holidays,” he said. “It’s too soon to tell, but with all of the unemployment, there may be slightly less travel than last year.” With a $2.35 average price per gallon in the Triad, the area fares better than most in the state.

Mother: Missing girl is pregnant and needs care MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

MOORESVILLE – Police continued to search for two missing Mooresville girls and their adoptive father today. The girls’ mother said one of the missing girls is nine months pregnant and needs urgent medical care. Missing are 12-year-old Keara Lasha Hess, who is pregnant, and Sierra Nicole Hess, 11. They haven’t been seen since leaving home with their adoptive father Thursday morning, investigators said. Iredell Sheriff’s Office Lt. Julie Gibson said Sunday night that investigators haven’t received any tips from the public and have no concrete informa-

tion about where their father, Mathew Hess, might have taken them. “We’re not able to track any activity that he’s done at all,” such as cell-phone calls, Gibson said. Jeanette Hess, the girls’ mother, is especially concerned about Keara because she was due to give birth to a baby boy over the weekend, she said in an interview with the Observer. She told the Observer that she wants her daughter’s pregnancy disclosed because she is scared Keara won’t receive medical care and because it will help people notice them. “I want people to know – she sticks out like a sore thumb,” Hess said. “I want someone to call police, I need to know something.”

Thomasville fined for spill ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

Eric Efird makes a pass in the lawn tractor pull race held at Yester Year in Motion in Jamestown.

THOMASVILLE – The North Carolina Division of Water Quality announced Monday that it has fined the city of Thomasville $35,116 for a wastewater spill over the summer. The unpermitted sewer system overflow of 15.93 million gallons into Hamby Creek in July and August was initially reported by the city as 385,000 gallons on Aug. 3. Later, the city amended its report when it discovered that the spill had begun earlier. The total amount of the spill, as amended, is the largest on record with the division.

N.C. lawmakers positive even with mental health cuts RALEIGH (AP) – Legislative leaders who monitor North Carolina’s mental health system are surprisingly positive after negative actions they took last month to close a budget hole. They’re pleased with new Department of Health and Human Services leaders who oversee treatment for more than 300,000 mentally ill patients, substance abusers and the developmentally disabled. However, spending cuts for treatment reaching as high as $400 million this fiscal year mean there’s no doubt patients will lose local treatment options and see other services curbed. “I’d be optimistic if we didn’t cut the budget 20 percent,” said Dave Richard, executive director of the Arc of North Carolina, which advocates for the mentally disabled. “You can’t do what they’re doing without hurting thousands upon thousands of people in the state.” The cuts had to be deep, accord-

ing to Democrats who calculated the budget gap for this year at more than $4 billion. But improved cooperation with the de-

Improved cooperation with the department helped prevent patient cuts from getting worse, said Sen. Martin Nesbitt, D-Buncombe. partment helped prevent patient cuts from getting worse, said Sen. Martin Nesbitt, D-Buncombe. “We now have people we can work with,” said Nesbitt, co-chairman of the Legislature’s mental health oversight committee. “This (reduction) is what we had to do to preserve the system.” The good feelings contrast with

eight years of frustrations and setbacks for a mental health reform effort that a legislative watchdog agency said in July ultimately wasted up to $635 million in government money on one initiative alone. The positive vibes are traced to Secretary Lanier Cansler, who was hardly a newcomer when Gov. Beverly Perdue appointed him in January. The former House member, from Buncombe County like Nesbitt, was deputy secretary during then-Gov. Mike Easley’s first term before a brief consulting career. Under Easley, the department struggled to carry out a 2001 law designed to shift the state’s mental health programs away from institutional care to community-based treatment offered by private providers. Lawmakers and advocates clashed with the department under then-Secretary Carmen Hooker Odom because they said she didn’t seek their input enough. But advocates say Cansler wasn’t part of the problem.

The untreated wastewater spill, which began July 13 and ended Aug. 4, came from the North Hamby Creek Outfall Line near Baptist Children’s Home Road, and sewage spilled into the North Hamby Creek in the Yadkin/Pee Dee River Basin, which flows into High Rock Lake. City officials have said the spill happened as a result of a manhole that collapsed, possibly during or after a rainstorm on July 13. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Criminal Investigation Division continues to probe the spill. The city is also investigating.

Officials seek witnesses to fatal S.C. helicopter crash GEORGETOWN, S.C. (AP) – As federal investigators looked for witnesses to the crash of a medical helicopter, funeral services were set Monday for two of the three crew members killed in the rainy weekend accident. Investigators said they found no immediate indication there was any malfunction with the aircraft before the Friday night crash and that the engine seemed to be working properly. The helicopter went down in a pine stand in a sparsely populated area south of Georgetown, about 60 miles northeast of Charleston, S.C.

“We’re not surprised, it being so rural, we have not heard from anybody,� Peter Knudson, a National Transportation Safety Board spokesman. He said two NTSB investigators would remain at the scene for the next day or two documenting wreckage that, at this point, provides no obvious clue what happened. “There is nothing we have found so far to indicate there was anything wrong with the aircraft prior to the accident,� he said. The helicopter did not have, and was not required to have, a flight voice recorder.

As part of the investigation, experts will take apart the engine to make sure it was operating properly, Knudson said. Omniflight, the Texasbased company that operated the helicopter, identified the crew members as pilot Patrick Walters, 45, of Murrells Inlet, flight nurse Diana Conner, 42, of Florence and paramedic Randolph Claxton Dove, 39, of Bladenboro, N.C. The helicopter had just dropped off a patient at a hospital in Charleston and was flying to Conway, about 90 miles to AP the northeast, when it Ralph Hicks (left) and Todd Gunther, investigators with the National Transportation crashed.

Cole said after Odueso, now 28, killed Christy Ann Galvin, he took her car and credit card and fled Charlotte. Galvin, 26, was found slain in her bed in July 2005. Her silver 2003 Nissan was missing from the apartment complex off Old Concord Road.

Authorities in upstate New York found Odueso trying to cross into Canada fourteen hours later, driving her car. Odueso has pleaded not guilty. His attorney, Joe VonKallist, told jurors Odueso is not a “thug or a hood.� VonKallist said Odueso and Galvin were talking about problems in their relationship when she got angry. “She came at him, swung a fist at him,� VonKallist said. Odueso saw a knife, his lawyers said, and he tried to subdue Galvin with his arm around her neck. Odueso left the apartment momentarily and when he returned she was dead, VonKallist said.

Score two for Burr, two against Hagan In my last letter, I stated to our Congressional officials that I would be watching them – fair warning! Each night on the Internet, I check the Congressional Record Roll Call Vote to discover how our senators and representatives vote on issues and how they spend our money. Readers might be interested to know that on Sept. 16, there was a vote “to prohibit the use of stimulus funds for self-congratulatory signage that allows lawmakers to promote their spending of taxpayer dollars on stimulus projects.” Thank you Richard Burr for having the sense to vote yea to prohibit such excessive waste of taxpayer money … and Kay Hagan … you get a big fat raspberry! Your wasteful spending will be exposed. Here’s another one – Sept. 17 – a vote to limit the use of funds for the John Murtha Johnstown Cambria County Airport, known by some as the “Airport to Nowhere” for its lack of flights. This airport, built with taxpayer money to benefit Rep. John A Murtha, gets three flights per day with about 25 passengers on each flight. Reports says it may be one of the most expensive taxpayer-subsidized ventures in the history of U.S.



commercial aviation. As of April 2009, the airport had received almost $200 million in federal subsidies. In 2004, an $8 million air traffic radar system was installed at the airport but, as of April 2009, it never has been used. So on Sept. 17, the vote to limit the use of funds for this “airport to nowhere” was defeated. Thank you again Richard Burr for trying to save our money. And, uh oh, Kay Hagan, looks like you made another boo-boo! You no longer can say one thing to the public and do something different in Washington. We will uncover the truth and it will set us free!

Why wait until 2013? Ask the right questions now It was a seemingly unjustified public statement that Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) made, “You lie,” to President Obama. But how else can you interpret Obama’s denial that the health care plan would cover illegal immigrants? More citizens should know that “the Democrats voted down efforts to add an enforcement mechanism to verify the citizenship of applicants.” (quote from USA Today by Kathy Kiely, Sept. 11, 2009, Section A.) How else will non-citizens be kept from receiving coverage for which we citizens will be paying? Also, I would like to know if the date coverage begins will be in the

year 2013, as has been reported. Why wait until 2013? What is in the bill that the Democrats don’t want us to know about? If the president has been groomed to become the leader of the New World Order by former secretary of state Henry Kissinger, could this bill just be another mechanism to bring that plan nearer? By 2013, President Obama could be re-elected to his second term and well in position to enforce such a bill. It is reported that included in this bill is removal of all state laws governing abortion. Sunday, one morning commentator said, “I don’t answer questions, I just ask questions.” The problem is the commentators don’t ask the right questions of Obama, and they sure can’t outtalk him. They don’t discuss what I have mentioned. Why? Can we believe anything that is said on these programs? I sure can’t pay anymore for insurance and copay. The president denies that there will be additional taxation to cover the costs of health care. Aren’t copays a type of taxation? RUBYMAE GARRISON High Point

hanks to more than a couple of years of planning, fundraising and execution, the Miracle is alive in High Point. The effort to build a playing surface, complete with dugouts, bleachers and wheelchair-accessible playground for The Miracle League of High Point that was sparked by Ed Price three years ago was celebrated Saturday at the site, now part of the expansion of the High Point Athletic Complex off Shadybrook Road. The Miracle League of High Point, now set up to provide baseball activity for as many as 15,000 disabled and special needs children in the Triad, is part of a web of baseball groups across the United States and Canada that reach some 100,000 children. There were some mini-miracles along the way. Among them were the city of High Point pitched in with infrastructure; Scott Tilley joining with Price and Allen Oliver in the fundraising effort; the bringing together of such a diverse group of backers, as City Manager Strib Boynton put it, “every civic club, hundreds and hundreds of individuals – I’ve never seen anything like it; the guidance of Oliver and the High Point Parks & Recreation Department; and, most noticeably, the expressions on the faces of those youngsters who participated in opening day ceremonies. And completion of the project this year that was supposed to be ready for action in June but was delayed by weather conditions during the spring and summer that delayed construction work. But the job’s not done yet: Supporters of the Miracle League still are seeking donations, coaches, volunteers and players.

Overwhelmed officials called for international help, warning they may not have sufficient resources to withstand another storm that forecasters said was brewing east of the island nation and could hit as early as Friday.

Cuba somewhat conciliatory to U.S. UNITED NATIONS – Cuba told the United Nations Monday that the communist regime is ready to normalize relations with the United States and will work with Washington in the meantime on other issues such as fighting drug smuggling. Taking a conciliatory tone, Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez told the U.N. General Assembly that Cuba had approached the American government with “a set of essential topics” it considers imperative to improving bilateral ties.

BAGHDAD (AP) – A string of bombings killed at least 18 people across Iraq on Monday, shattering a relative lull in violence during the celebration that marks the end of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. The blasts primarily targeted Iraqi security forces, which have been the focal point of insurgent attacks since U.S. troops pulled out of Iraq’s cities at the end of June. The uptick in violence also comes as the country’s shops and schools reopened after the Eid holiday that follows the end of the Muslim holy month.

Iran tests advanced missiles TEHRAN, Iran (AP) – Iran tested its most advanced missiles Monday to cap two days of war games, raising more international concern and stronger pressure to quickly come clean on the newly revealed nuclear site Tehran was secretly constructing. State television said the powerful Revolutionary Guard, which controls Iran’s missile program, successfully tested upgraded versions of the medium-range Shahab-3 and Sajjil missiles. Both can carry warheads and reach up to 1,200 miles (2,000 kilometers), putting Israel, U.S. military bases in the Middle East, and parts of Europe within striking distance.

The missile tests were cial Fars news agency. Iran conducted three meant to flex Iran’s military might and show rounds of missile tests in drills that began Sunday, two days after the U.S. and its allies disclosed the country had been secretly developing an underground uranium enrichment facility. The Western powers warned Iran it must open the site to international inspection or face harsher international sanctions.

Secret Service investigates assasination poll on Obama

NEW YORK – After interrupting what they believed was a terrorist plot on New York City with a series of raids and arrests, authorities have intensified their focus on possible accomplices of the suspected al-Qaida associate at the heart of the case, a law enforcement official said Monday. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation continues, confirmed that investigators know the identities of at least three people believed to be in on a bombing plot they say might have targeted mass transit in the New York area.

Teen claims he was held in closet for years OKLAHOMA CITY – A woman was arrested after her 14-year-son told authorities he escaped from a home where he’d been kept for 412⠄ years, spending most of his time locked in a bedroom closet, police said Monday. After police interviews, officers on Saturday arrested the boy’s mother, 37-year-old LaRhonda Marie McCall, and a friend, 38-year-old Steve Vern Hamilton, on 20 complaints each of child abuse and child neglect.

Official George Bengal says Davis admitted to taping up the cat from neck to tail after he spotted it in his yard Sept. 21.

Obama to lobby for Olympics in Chicago WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama’s decision to fly to Denmark to support Chicago’s Olympics bid elevates the Games to an issue of national importance – and exposes him to political risks as well as rewards at a critical point in his presidency. Obama’s presentation in Copenhagen on Friday will be the first time a U.S. president has appeared before the International Olympic Committee to lobby for an Olympics. Obama initially had said he couldn’t make the trip because he needed to tend to

the health care debate at home. As the White House announced the change of heart on Monday,

Obama could get a political boost for helping to deliver the Games. there seemed to be increasing confidence that the votes could be stacking up Chicago’s way to host the 2016 Summer Games. If Chicago does come away the vic-

tor in the four-way race – Madrid, Rio de Janeiro and Tokyo are the other contenders – Obama could get a political boost for helping to deliver the Games to his adopted hometown and for handing the U.S. a fresh source of national pride. If the U.S. loses, he still might get points for trying. But he would be visibly tied to a failed effort – and to the spending of political capital on an endeavor many Americans might consider unworthy of so much of a president’s time and energy.

City seeks volunteers for Big Sweep BY PAT KIMBROUGH ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – Volunteers will take to local waterways, streets and neighborhoods this weekend for High Point’s annual Big Sweep litter cleanup effort. The public is invited to join in the effort Saturday, which is part of the 2009 North Carolina Big Sweep, the state’s component of the International Coastal Cleanup, an event in which volunteers from all 100 counties and about 90 countries worldwide come together to clean up watersheds. The event typically draws various school groups and Scout

troops, as well as business and civic groups. Volunteers can show up the day of the cleanup, but city officials said it’s helpful for them to know in advance how many people plan to participate so they can provide an adequate number of bags, gloves and safety vests. “People can clean a creek, a stream, a lake, a park or the roadway around those areas,” said Melanie Bruton, superintendent of material recovery and environmental programs coordinator for the city. “All of the trash eventually ends up in the waterway, so we pick up trash wherever we can.” Bruton said she plans to send groups of 30 to 50 people to eight

general areas to pick up trash. In years past, the shores of Oak Hollow Lake have been a common cleanup site. Last year, 283 people took part, collecting 9,500 pounds of trash. Bruton said the city recycles what it can and disposes of the rest. Big Sweep, which began in 1987, has been responsible for the removal of more than 8 million pounds of trash from state waterways. “It was a hastily started waterway cleanup and the ocean conservancy then moved inland,” Bruton said. “We’re just looking forward to hopefully a rain-free day.”




High Point’s Big Sweep cleanup is scheduled 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday. Volunteers will gather at the High Point Bank Operations Center, 1300 E. Hartley Drive (across from Oak Hollow Mall), to receive bags, gloves and safety vests. Pizza will be served after the cleanup. For more information and to volunteer, contact Melanie Bruton at 883-3517 or | 888-3531

Those departments named for Lillian Hassell formerly were located in Benson. Hassell Health four different buildings.

“This building is an educator’s dream come true,” said Dr. Brenda Kays, vice president of student learning and success. “It provides a quality learning environment.” GTCC President Donald W. Cameron said the Hassell Center “will play a major role in the health of the residents of Guilford County for many years to come.”

County Commissioner Bruce Davis, a GTCC graduate, said the Hassell Center is “a great accomplishment.” Anna Potts, nursing class president, praised the outstanding equipment and classrooms. “I’m glad to be a part of history in the making in this state-of-the-art institution,” she said.

Benson, who grew up in Jamestown, taught at W.W. Odell School in Cabarrus County for 33 years after graduating from Woman’s College, now the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. She lived in Wellsprings Retirement Community in Greensboro from 1995 until she died at age 89 in 2005.

JAMESTOWN – Memories of Lillian Hassell Benson lingered last week during the dedication of a new technology center named for her. Tears came to the eyes of Judy Benson James, Benson’s daughter, when she spoke of the love that her mother had, not only for family members, but for those in the community who needed help or simply needed a friend. James said it is befitting for an educational building to bear her mother’s name because “she had a real love for education.” James said her mother’s maiden name was placed on the building because of her roots in Jamestown. A portrait of Lillian and Dick Benson was unveiled by Shirley Frye, GTCC trustees chairwoman,

E. Burke Bridges THOMASVILLE – E. Burke Bridges, 81, longtime Thomasville resident, died on September 27, 2009, at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center. He was born in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina on November 1, 1927, a son of Lemuel Caswell Bridges and Ethel Ogburn Bridges. He attended Thomasville High School and Randolph Macon Military Academy then completed his undergraduate degree at Duke University. After college, he was drafted into the Army and served two years. He was accepted to the Wharton School of Finance, but decided to move back to Thomasville and purchase the The Thomasville Dry Goods Store which he renamed The Bridges Company and ran successfully until 1967. At age 39 with a wife and three children he embarked on his lifelong dream of becoming a stockbroker. He spent 9 months training in New York City to become a broker and enjoyed a very fulfilling 21 year career. His retirement years with his wife were filled with activities that he loved: music, traveling, following Duke sports, time at Ocean Isle and, most importantly, time with family. He had a strong sense of community and exhibited that commitment by serving as City Councilman from 1963-1967, member of the Jaycees, Chamber of Commerce, and member of the board of trustees for City Memorial Hospital and helped raise funds to construct the hospital and YMCA. He was a member of Memorial United Methodist Church and was a former choir member. He is survived by his wife of 54 years, Wynema Gibson Bridges of

the home; a son Brent B. Bridges of Thomasville and two daughters Tina B. Andersen and husband Mark of Charlottesville, Va and Teresa R. Bridges of Thomasville, five grandchildren William Caswell Bridges, Stephen Burke Bridges, Ashley Bridges Andersen, Caroline Bridges Andersen and Jason Bridges Andersen. His rescued cat, Pumpkin and rescued dog, Duke will greatly miss him. Mr. Bridges was preceded in death by a grandson Justin C. Bridges. “Fred” as he was lovingly called never met a stranger and always told his family “if you can’t say anything nice, then don’t say anything at all”. He was blessed with a generous, kind, loving heart and wonderful disposition. He was fondly referred to as “Mr. Happy”. He was a loving and wonderful husband, father, and grandfather who was upbeat, funny and loved his family. He always said that H-A-P-PI-N-E-S-S was the most important thing in life. Family visitation will take place at J.C. Green Funeral Home in Thomasville on Tuesday September 29th from 6:00 until 8:00. There will be a graveside service on Wednesday September 30 at 11:00 at Holly Hill Cemetery in Thomasville with Rev. Doctor Ivan H.M. Peden and Rev. Peggy Finch officiating.

Lawmaker denies tax charges MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

State Rep. Nick Mackey has denied charges by the N.C. State Bar that he willfully failed to file four years of tax returns on time, saying he was following the advice of his tax preparer. He also denied that he failed to pay four earlier years of taxes on time, saying he believed all forms had been filed and that monthly payments were being made. In his response posted by the State Bar this morning, Mackey also denied charges that he didn’t properly represent a former legal client, and disputed allegations about his former tenure as a Charlotte police officer. Mackey faces a December hearing before the bar’s Disciplinary Hearing Commission, which could opt to dismiss the charges or levy a punishment ranging from a warning to disbarment.

Soldier recovering after lightning strike FAYETTEVILLE (AP) – A North Carolina woman who was holding a child when they were struck by lightning has been identified as an Army soldier. Officials at Fort Bragg

said Monday that Spc. Rosa V. Sanchez is a personnel clerk assigned to Headquarters and Headquarters Detachment. The Fayetteville Fire Department said the 21year-old Sanchez and the

18-month-old child were hit last Friday afternoon. A UNC Hospitals spokeswoman said Sanchez is hospitalized in serious condition. The child is listed in fair condition.

Daughter can’t escape mother’s violent anger D

ear Abby: I need your help badly. I am 39 years old and live with my mother due to a physical disability. Mom becomes violent when she gets mad or upset. If she’s having a bad day, I can expect her to be in my face (literally). She yells and screams, and if I refuse to yell back at her or try to ignore her – the only way I know how to deal with the situation – she gets even madder. I have suggested counseling, but she insists that she is fine and that I’m the one who needs the help. What do I do? I can’t keep on this way, and I am unable to go anywhere. – Can’t Stand the Violence

Dear Can’t: Your mother is an emotional mess, but she is halfright. You DO need help. And the place you can get it is the National Adult Protective Services Association (NAPSA). It’s an organization that has been around for 20 years – and has members in all 50 states as well as Canada. Here’s how to find them: Go to Next, click on “Report Abuse,” then click on your state. Your mother needs help, too, and the people at Adult Protective Services can help her face that reality. Please write again and let me know how you’re doing. I care. Dear Abby: The day before my wedding, my fiance’s aunt left me a gift.


After the wedding I opened it and read the card that was enclosed. It was lingeADVICE rie, which seemed Dear like a Abby well-inten■■■ tioned gift. The card, however, was a bit puzzling. Turns out the lingerie was her own, and slightly used. On the card she said it had been “only used a few times.” It struck me as inappropriate to receive “used” (and wrong-sized) lingerie from a new auntin-law. However, I do believe she was well- intentioned. Abby, her gift made me uncomfortable. Am I wrong in thinking it was inappropriate? Any thoughts on how to write a thank-you card for such a gift? – Flummoxed in the USA

Dear Flummoxed: This new relative may be a “character,” or she may not have had the means to buy you a wedding gift and gave you the nicest thing she could come up with. My advice is to be gracious. Do not tell her the lingerie is the wrong size or criticize it in any way. Simply say: “Thank you for welcoming me into the family. Your kindness and thoughtfulness are appreciated, and I look forward to getting to know you in the years to come.”

Dear Abby: With the support of my friend “Lynn,” I left “Stephanie,” my wife of 17 years – after she admitted to more than two dozen affairs over the course of our marriage. I am now in a relationship with Lynn and very happy. My problem is my kids think I left Stephanie for Lynn because that is what their mother has told them. As much as I despise what my wife has done, I would never tell them the truth. I tell them Mommy and Daddy had their “differences,” but they know there is more to the story. Please advise. – Almost Happily Ever After in Utah Dear Almost: Mommy and Daddy did, indeed, have their differences. And there is also more to the story. If Lynn hadn’t been there supporting you, would you still be tolerating Stephanie’s serial infidelity? If the answer is yes, then in a sense, you did leave Stephanie for Lynn, which may have been healthier for all concerned. But since your children already know there is more to the story, tell them you’ll tell them the rest of it when they are older if they still want to know. And when they’re adults, if they do, follow through.

Prostate procedures improved BY DRS. BART FRIZZELL AND CRAIG HALL


rostate cancer is by far the most commonly diagnosed cancer among men. It has been estimated that in 2009, approximately 25 percent of all cancers diagnosed in men will be prostate cancer. Prostate cancer management has gone through many changes through the years. The most commonly mentioned and well understood management option is surgery in which the prostate is removed in its entirety. Several advances in surgical technique have made surgery more appealing to men. The most recent major advancement in surgery is the use of a surgical robot. This allows the surgery to be done in a minimally invasive fashion with greater precision and less complications for the patient. At High Point Regional Health System, we have been performing robotic surgery since 2006. Surgery; however, is not the only option, and many patients are often unaware of this fact. There are now several non-surgical approaches to the management of prostate cancer that, in the right situation, are as effective as surgery. At High Point Regional, men’s non-surgical options include such things as: image guided intensity modulated radiation therapy, high-dose-rate brachytherapy, prostate seed implant and cryotherapy. Intensity modulated radiation therapy is an advanced method of external radiation treatment in which a radiation beam is manipulated as it exits a treatment machine. High dose rate brachytherapy and prostate seed implant are means of focusing the radiation in the prostate by placing radioactive material into the prostate. Cryotherapy is a newer technique that uses neither surgery nor radiation to treat the cancer. Instead, the prostate is temporarily frozen and then thawed. This new method offers a new and unique approach to treating the cancer. Finally, there are some men who do not need their prostate cancer treated. Men who qualify for no treatment generally have a cancer that is well behaved enough that it most likely will never hurt the man during his lifetime. Men with prostate cancer have many management choices, and the best treatment for each man takes into consideration both surgical and non-surgical options.

How to raise good cholesterol and lower bad cholesterol


ear Dr. Donohue: I am a healthy male in my 50s. A recent blood test showed my total cholesterol to be 173 (4.5). But my HDL cholesterol is too low, and my LDL cholesterol is not low enough. How do I take care of these two items? I watch my diet and exercise daily. – S.S.


We’re told to get our total cholesterol to a value less than 200 mg/ dL (5.2 mmol/L). Yours is excellent. HDL cholesterol, the good cholesterol, takes artery-clogging cholesterol to the liver for disposal. A man’s HDL cholesterol should be higher than 40 (1.04) and a woman’s higher than 50 (1.3). LDL cholesterol is bad cholesterol, the kind that fills arteries with gunk. People with no heart disease risk can have a reading under 160 (4.1) without health consequences; those with two risk factors should have an LDL lower than 130 (3.4), and those with more risks ought to strive for a reading under 100 (2.6). Anyone who has had a heart attack needs a value of 70 (1.8) or lower. “Risk factors” include a family history of heart disease, cigarette smoking, obesity, large waist measurements, high blood pressure, diabetes and a sedentary life. Intense aerobic exer-















cise and weight reduction boost HDL. Aerobic exercise is brisk HEALTH walking, jogging, Dr. Paul swimming Donohue and bike■■■ riding. Red wine (and perhaps other alcoholic drinks) raises HDL. One drink a day is enough for women; two for men. If these measures aren’t raising HDL, medicines like niacin, statins and fibrates (not fiber) can boost it. Physical activity and weight loss lower LDL cholesterol. Diet is important. Avoid trans fats, the fats found in many commercial foods like baked goods. The trans fat content of food is listed on labels. In place of butter, use oils – olive, canola, soy and flaxseed. Two fish meals a week lower it, as do nuts. Limit your use of sugar and white flour. The statin drugs, the ones usually prescribed for cholesterollowering, also bring down LDL. Dear Dr. Donohue: About two weeks ago I saw the tail end of a TV show that demonstrated a new procedure to repair an aortic aneurysm. It showed a balloon being inserted into the aneurysm. Will you please address

this procedure? – R.S. I believe you’re asking about endovascular repair of aortic aneurysms. An aneurysm is a bulge in an artery, a weak spot. The aorta is the body’s largest artery. It starts at the heart and runs down the chest and into the abdomen. At the lowest part of the abdomen, it divides into two arteries, one for each leg. The abdominal aorta is the site of many aneurysms. If the bulge reaches a size of 5 to 5.5 cm (2 to 2.2 inches), the aneurysm is in danger of bursting open and causing a lethal hemorrhage. In an endovascular repair, a pliable catheter is inserted into a surface artery, usually a groin artery, and snaked to the site of the aneurysm. The catheter comes equipped with a polyester tube that the doctor deploys when the aneurysm site is reached. Metal stents expand the polyester tube so it completely covers the bulging aneurysm. This repair greatly decreases the time of recuperation from patching up an aneurysm. DR. DONOHUE regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible. Readers may write him or request an order form of available health newsletters at P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475

‘I think my dad would’ve been very proud of Rusty on Saturday.’ Erin Boger Rusty Corley’s sister


Special Olympian Rusty Corley (right), a fourth-degree Knight of Columbus, marches in with honor guard Saturday during dedication of the Miracle Field.

Knight to remember On the Miracle Field, Rusty Corley marches in the footsteps of his late father BY JIMMY TOMLIN ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER



Deborah Weithofer puts finishing touches on Rusty Corley’s uniform Saturday.

IGH POINT – Rusty Corley figures his dad, Fred, would’ve been proud. Amid all the fanfare of opening day Saturday at the new High Point Miracle Field, an especially poignant story unfolded quietly during the opening ceremonies: Corley, a longtime Special Olympian, served in the Knights of Columbus Honor Guard – his first time for the distinction. “It was a really neat experience,” says Corley, 31, of High Point. “I’m sure (my father) would’ve been proud.” It may not seem like much, but don’t miss the significance of the moment: On a field designed to let children with disabilities play baseball – something most kids take for granted – a young man with disabilities of his own served in the honor guard – something most Knights of Columbus probably take for granted.

“He was just beaming,” says Deborah Weithofer, who attends Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church with Corley and who altered a donated tuxedo for Corley to wear with his honor guard regalia. Corley, who was adopted by Fred and Bea Corley, was especially close to his dad, who for many years was immersed in the Knights of Columbus, a Catholic fraternal service organization. The elder Corley was a fourth-degree Knight and served as Grand Knight, and in 1986 the Corley family was named the International Family of the Year for the Knights of Columbus. Naturally, the younger Corley wanted to follow in his father’s footsteps, so he, too, joined the Knights of Columbus. Like his father, he attained the level of fourth-degree Knight last October, a little over a year after his father’s death. Once he became a fourth-degree Knight, he was eligible to serve in the honor guard,


and he got that chance Saturday. Corley wore a tuxedo donated by the wife of a former Knight, as well as regalia once worn by a Knight who lived in the Asheboro area. Weithofer altered the tuxedo for Corley and helped him with the regalia. “We worked on it to get it ready, so he could be part of the honor guard for the Miracle Field,” says Weithofer, whose husband, Frank, also was part of the honor guard. The local Knights of Columbus have taken good care of Corley, especially since his father died. They provide transportation for him to get to and from meetings, and help him in other ways as well. “Rusty has stayed very involved in the Knights of Columbus, and they’ve taken very good care of him, which I think is an honor to my dad,” says Corley’s sister, Erin Boger of Wallburg. “I think my dad would’ve been very proud of Rusty on Saturday.” | 888-3579

The West Salem Neighborhood Association’s Tour of Homes will be held Oct. 17, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., in the Winston-Salem neighborhood. The tour will reflect the unusual character and diversity of the neighborhood by featuring homes that range from Queen Anne and Victorian cottages to Craftsman bungalows to modern townhomes. The neighborhood has the largest number of 17thand 18th-century houses in the area and has been a neighborhood of diversity since its inception in 1782. The neighborhood has won several awards in the past few years, including an award for advocacy from the Winston-Salem Historic Commission, an Echo Award from the Winston-Salem Foundation for its efforts to foster diversity, and the city’s Art of Living Award for the efforts of the garden club with its Garden of the Week program. Tickets are $8 in advance and are available in Winston-Salem at Ruff’s Flower Shop, 612 S. Poplar St., and Imagine Flowers, 560 N. Trade St. Tickets are $10 the day of the tour and will be available at the Magnolia House of Health, 601 S. Broad St., Winston-Salem. Proceeds will go to assist the neighborhood association in its various programs to foster community and fight crime.

Tuesday, Sept. 29, 2009 CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Erika Eleniak, 40; Bryant Gumbel, 61; Jerry Lee Lewis, 74; Anita Ekberg, 78 HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Stick to your plans and follow through. Don’t let other people sidetrack you with possibilities that have little substance. Focus on what’s important to you this year if you want to advance emotionally, mentally and financially. Your intuition will steer you in the right direction so don’t hem and haw when action is required. Your numbers are 10, 17, 24, 29, 37, 44, 47 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Offering your time, skills or service will take you into a new group that has a lot to bring to the table. The favors, proposals and knowledge you will acquire, due to your kindness and participation, will help to establish your position. ★★★★ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Show confidence and stability. Changing your plans because someone else does will not leave you in a strong position. Refuse to let your emotions cause you to act impulsively. Your actions must reflect your own ideas. ★★ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t leave anything to chance or count on someone else to do your job. Put your priorities in order and finish what you start. A relationship with someone may not be as good for you as you thought. Protect what you have worked so hard to acquire. ★★★★★ CANCER (June 21-July 22): You can have a new-you in no time if you make alterations to your lifestyle, appearance or even your skills – all bringing beneficial results. You will have a better chance to follow your dreams, hopes and wishes into the future. ★★★ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): A relationship or partnership is possible but be honest about what you are bringing to the table. Too much talk may give someone you are dealing with a false impression. Don’t make promises you may not be able to fulfill. ★★★ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The most unlikely situation or set of circumstances will turn out to be the most satisfying and profitable. Trying new things will enable you to offer more to people you work with or who depend on you. There is money to be made. ★★★ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You may face a learning curve but it will set you apart from everyone else. Your intellectual input coupled with your unique skill to develop something with substance into something bold and breathtaking will win favors, friends and an ongoing respect. ★★★★★ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You’ll have trouble getting your point across to someone you are close to. Question whether you are being told the truth. Sort through what’s real and what’s not and don’t be fooled by false impressions. ★★★ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You must stay on course and refrain from making any abrupt changes that will alter the way you live or the lifestyle you lead. Travel for pleasure will ease stress but will cause financial problems. ★★★★ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Your intelligence and intuitive awareness will not steer you wrong financially or emotionally. Take something that interests you and rework it so it will draw interest from people looking to invest. ★★★ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You’ll want too much, too fast. Don’t make a fuss if you don’t get your way. Someone is trying to save you from making a poor choice. Listen to the advice being given and slow down the process until you have more facts. ★★★ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You’ll be in the mood to conquer and accomplish but don’t be too quick to share your ideas, plans or success. Someone may try to take advantage of you. Put your skills to work for you. The slow and solid route will bring you success. ★★★




“Ed has elevated defense to an art,” a club player told me. “If there’s no way to beat a contract, he’ll invent one.” Ed, my club’s best player, was today’s West. He chose a trump lead against four hearts, and South drew trumps and led a club to dummy’s nine. East took the queen and shifted to a spade, and South took dummy’s ace and let the ten of diamonds ride. Ed won with the ACE and led a club. South saw no reason to risk a second club finesse when he could pick up the diamonds and pitch a club from dummy. He rose with the ace and led the nine of diamonds, and Ed produced the queen and took the king of clubs. Down one!

DISCARD Really, the person most responsible for beating the ice-cold contract was South. After he draws trumps, he should start the diamonds, not the clubs. South has time to set up a diamond discard for dummy’s third club, succeeding no matter how the cards lie. Moreover, South could’ve finessed on the second club in case West was up to trickery.



DAILY QUESTION You hold: S Q J 10 8 7 H 6 D A Q 3 2 C K 7 6. You open one spade, your partner responds 1NT, you bid two diamonds and he tries two hearts. What do you say? ANSWER: Pass. Partner has six or more hearts but fewer than 10 points. Game is impossible, and his hand will win a few tricks only if hearts are trumps. Some experts might bid two spades on the theory that partner’s two hearts is only a suggestion and he may have a weak five-card suit. I don’t agree. South dealer Both sides vulnerable

ONE STAR: It’s best to avoid conflicts; work behind the scenes or read a good book. Two stars: You can accomplish but don’t rely on others for help. Three stars: If you focus, you will reach your goals. Four stars: You can pretty much do as you please, a good time to start new projects. Five stars: Nothing can stop you now. Go for the gold.

Tar Heels focus on Cavs







CHAPEL HILL – After a disappointing loss to Georgia Tech on Saturday, North Carolina began turning its focus to its next opponent, Virginia, on Monday. But even as the Tar Heels answered questions about the Cavaliers, the 24-7 loss to Georgia Tech was in the back of their minds. UNC might be playing Virginia this week, but the Tar Heels will be using their first defeat of the season as motivation against the Cavaliers. “A lot of the guys on the team kind of have a bad taste in their mouths,” UNC quarterback T.J. Yates said. “The expectations for ourselves as a team going into this season, we didn’t see ourselves losing so early, so a lot of guys are pretty angry, pretty [ticked] off, and I think that’s going to help us.” UNC’s offense had its worst performance of the season against the Jackets, and it was the fewest points scored by the Tar Heels under Coach Butch Davis. In Monday’s interviews, Yates and running back Shaun Draughn each took part of the blame for the anemic output. Yates missed easy passes and never got in a rhythm, and Draughn said he missed some reads in the back field. “I performed bad,” said Draughn, who finished with 26 rushing yards on six carries. “I take the blame for myself. I can’t speak for everybody else, but I know I can play better than what I did.” The Tar Heels’ challenge this week will be to correct their offensive mistakes in time to face the Cavs, a team that has won nine of the past 11 meetings at Kenan Stadium.


From left: Greg Funk, Kevin Lyons, David Merritt, Stephen McDaniel and Andrew Daniel have helped Southwest Guilford enjoy plenty of success so far this season. The Cowboys sport an 11-0-3 overall record and sit atop the Piedmont Triad 4A Conference standings.

Southwest having fun O

ne Cowboy barked at another “Hey, put that back!” when the cone set up in the practice drill mischievously got moved to make it harder for the opposing side. When one of Southwest Guilford’s top scorers, Joey Fiorello, was asked about his knack for finding the back of the net, a teammate jokingly chimed in with a comment about his height. As Justin Jones tried to explain the secret to his remarkably long throw-ins, Kevin Lyons reached over and squeezed his biceps: “He’s been working out a little bit,” Lyons said with a laugh. “You noticed!” replied the smiling Jones. Sure, Southwest Guilford’s soccer team possesses talent galore on the field. But it’s easy to see the secret to the unbeaten group’s success. “We’re a lot more of a team, I’d say, than in previous years,” said Lyons, a right midfielder. “We’re just having fun.” The Cowboys have gotten the last laugh so far at the expense of their foes. Southwest owns an 11-0-3 record and currently sits atop the Piedmont Triad 4A Conference standings. On the heels of three early ties to Northern Guilford (twice) and Western Alamance, the Cowboys pulled out tough wins over the likes of Grimsley and Northwest Guilford while rarely being challenged in other contests. Still, as well as Southwest was playing, the true measure of just how good this team might be came last Tuesday against nemesis Ragsdale. Cowboy seniors Lyons, Jones,

Fiorello, David Merritt and Max Wang, all with three years of varsity experience, owned four ties and two losses against the Tigers – including season-ending defeats in the playoffs the SPORTS past two years. “I still remember Steve sophomore year when Hanf they beat us at our ■■■ place,” Fiorello said. “That really hurt me personally.” “We came out ready to play and I don’t think they expected us to come out like that,” Jones said of a three-goal outburst in the first half. “Payback,” added Wang, a defensive midfielder, of what would become a 7-1 romp. “We’ve been waiting for this game for a while.” “There’s not been a year where it’s not been close,” said Merritt. Summed up Lyons, with another laugh: “I just think we really wanted to kill ‘em.” It’s the manner in which Southwest racks up the wins that’s most impressive. Andrew Daniel leads the squad with 12 goals, while Fiorello owns 11 and Merritt seven. Jones, a left-mid, orchestrates much of the attack with an impressive 18 assists – many of them off that throw-in that seemingly covers half the field to find Fiorello on the other end. “I know everybody knows that he’s got a big throw, but no one really knows that he can go from midfield to the 18 except for the players on our team,” Fiorello explained. “I kind of see that coming, wait for

him to start to throw it and start running. No one else does it besides us, really.” Outside of that one key weapon, Southwest’s attack is diverse enough to give defense’s fits. “We don’t have one superstar,” Jones offered. “Everybody has contributed, whether it’s defensively, offensively, winning balls in the midfield,” coach Rob Szitas said. “It’s not that we’re a one-dimensional team, one player who if you shut that player down, other people can’t pick up the slack. We have a lot of really, really good players, and every day, somebody rises to the occasion.” The biggest additions have come on defense this year after Southwest lost all-state performer Ben Weeks and league keeper of the year Robert Parker to graduation. As good as all the seniors have been on the offensive side, it took a freshman bursting onto the scene to stabilize the back. “With Danny Gillespie, we knew we had a rising freshman who did well in middle school and with his club,” Szitas explained. “Being a keeper as long as he’d been, we knew he had a chance to come in and start on varsity. He had to earn it – and he definitely did that.” In a few years, he’ll no doubt become one of those team leaders. For now, though, Southwest’s seniors are juggling success – and just the right amount of silliness – with no problem. There’s little doubt more good times lay ahead. | 888-3526

Wolfpack sees plenty of room for improvement RALEIGH (AP) – Moments after N.C. State’s come-from-behind victory over Pittsburgh, coach Tom O’Brien delivered a sobering message to the Wolfpack: They’re still not a good football team. “I believe we all agreed with him,” tight end George Bryan said Monday. So much for winning solving all problems. Yes, N.C. State has rediscovered its offense, scoring at least 35 points in three straight games. The defense is tops in the nation, at least statistically. And a threegame winning streak would seem

to wash away the bad taste that lingered after a lackluster opening loss to South Carolina. But O’Brien isn’t happy, and neither are the Wolfpack. Not after a 38-31 victory over Pittsburgh in which N.C. State (3-1) rallied from 14 points down but was penalized 12 times, then nearly gave the game away with a botched shotgun snap in the final minutes before the defense stopped Pitt inside the 10-yard line to preserve the win. After the game, O’Brien was hard on his team and himself, opening his postgame press conference by saying “we’re just not

a very good football team right now. There’s too many mistakes, and I’m doing a bad job coaching them. Anytime you have 12 penalties, and most Wilson of them were before the snap, that’s just a bad job.” He didn’t back off of those strong words on Monday. “We weren’t a real crisp organization,” O’Brien said. “We were very happy to win the game, but we certainly aren’t a good football team if you’re doing things like that.”

Since the Gamecocks held the Pack to only a field goal in the opener, N.C. State’s offense has found a groove. Atlantic Coast Conference player of the week Russell Wilson set a school record with 12 touchdown passes in the last three games. The Wolfpack have the best total defense in the nation, allowing an average of 201 yards. But that stat is at least partly misleading because the schedule includes two games against outmanned Football Championship Subdivision teams Murray State and GardnerWebb.




he ACC can expect a couple of weeks of Coastal calm on the gridiron. After back-to-back weeks of great Coastal Division football matchups, the schedule provides a brief respite before the head-to-head battles resume. For those keeping score, Miami crushed Georgia Tech 33-17, then Georgia Tech clubbed North Carolina 24-7 and Virginia Tech walloped Miami 31-7. That leaves the Coastal Division standings

with the Hokies leading the way at 3-1 overall, 1-0 in the conference. The Yellow Jackets are next at 3-1, 2-1, with the Hurricanes 2-1 overall and in the league. The Tar Heels stand 3-1, 0-1. Duke (2-2) and Virginia (0-3) have yet to play a league game. With all due respect to the Blue Devils and Cavaliers, they are not likely to ride the tide anywhere near the top of the Coastal standings. Some other intra-divisonal dates to circles

on your calendar? How about Virginia Tech at Georgia Tech on Oct. 17, North Carolina at Virginia Tech on Oct. 29 and Miami at UNC on Nov. 14. Of course, plenty of other potential ACC thrillers loom down the road. It makes for an interesting journey to the ACC championship game on Dec. 5 in Jacksonville.


Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops doesn’t know whether Heisman Trophy winner Sam Bradford will be ready for Saturday night’s game at No. 17 Miami, but said it won’t be a game-time decision. “I would think we would know here later in the week what Sam’s able to handle and where we feel we’re at with it,” Stoops said Monday on the Big 12 coaches conference call. “I would think it would be earlier than (a game-time decision).” Stoops said “everything has been positive” in Bradford’s recovery since he was hurt just before halftime in Oklahoma’s season-opening 14-13 loss to BYU. He has missed the No. 8 Sooners’ last two games with a sprained AC joint in his right, throwing shoulder. Bradford visited Dr. James Andrews in Alabama over the weekend to get an additional opinion on how his recovery is going. Stoops refused to assess Bradford’s chances of playing this week. “We’ll just see how the week goes.”

HIGH POINT – Craig Cozart continues to strive to be a man of change when it comes to the High Point University baseball program. Change as coaching the program into one that can post winning records, something it hasn’t done since 1990. Change as being so serious about the program that he and his coaching staff helped court a donor into ponying up $2 million to build an indoor practice facility that Cozart says is vital for the Panthers to become competitive. Change as in instilling a different attitude among his players, even if they finished 21-32. “As far as the win total, we were not satisfied,” Cozart said. “As far as the changes we need to make in the program – the way we played the game – I was satisfied with that. There had to be a perception change with our players about with our players about what we are, and I was pleased with that.” Cozart saw a glimpse of the winning culture that he wants to establish over a seven-day span last April that was the highlight of HPU’s season. First, the Panthers shocked then fourthranked North Carolina. Then after a loss to Virginia Tech, they won two games in a three games series against highly regarded Big South foe Coastal Carolina. They capped the run by beating Wake Forest to claim another win over an Atlantic Coast Conference foe. “What (UNC) has built is amazing,” Cozart said. “It went a long way to showing out players hear what we are capable of doing here. Does that mean we’re going to compete for a national championship year-in and year-out? Certainly not. But it does show

that we can be competitive against a nationally ranked team. “It showed the players that the system that we put into place will allow us to be competitive if we can execute.” To Cozart’s dismay, the Panthers lost 11 of the next 13 to finish the regular season at 19-30. HPU won two games in the Big South tournament for the first time ever before bowing out to end the season at 2132. “We had some nice wins last year. But we haven’t played .500 ball since 1990 and we don’t want to just play .500 ball. We want to compete for Big South championships and go to the NCAA tournament. “Now that our guys understand what the expectations are on and off the field, the next step is to create a culture of winning. That’s takes great talent and that takes great belief.” Cozart hopes the new practice facility will help attract talented players and then will help in speeding player development. “The talent we’re competing for expects that kind of facility and it will allow us to (speed up) the development of players. Without the building, it might take us 3-4 years to develop a player to his potential. With the building, it might take 2-3 years.” One major area that the Panthers need shoring up is pitching depth, Cozart said. “We’re very thin on the mound,” he explained. “And when you get in a tournament situation, you need depth. You look at Carolina or Coastal Carolina, if they gave a guy go down, they’ll have another guy come in who is pretty darn good. We’ve got to get to get quality depth on our bench and quality depth on our staff.” | 888-3519

HPU women stand ninth in tourney SPECIAL TO THE ENTERPRISE

GREENSBORO – The High Point University women’s golf team sits in ninth place out of 10 teams with a combined score of 653 after the second round of the UNCG Starmount tournament at the Starmount Country Club on Monday.

Branch captures Holly Ridge ladies title ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

ARCHDALE – Jeanie Branch captured the Holly Ridge Ladies Golf Championship on Monday. Beth Smith finished second. In first flight, Shirley Weed won with Louise

Joyce second. Margaret Smith captured second flight with Barbara Gesse second. Closest to the pin winners were Branch at No. 3, Sandy McCollick at No. 8, Susan Halker at No. 11 and Barbara Hinshaw at No. 16.


The car of Joey Logano (20) rolls over at the start of a wreck with Reed Sorenson (43), Robby Gordon (7) and Martin Truex Jr. (1) during the AAA 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup auto race on Sunday at Dover International Speedway in Dover, Del. No one was seriously injured in the crash.


CHARLOTTE – Oh boy, another easy victory for Jimmie Johnson. Just what NASCAR didn’t need in its bid to use an exciting championship race to spark its sagging ratings. With a runaway win Sunday at Dover International Raceway, Johnson stepped up and practically dared the competition to wrestle the Sprint Cup from his grasp. He’s going for a record fourth straight championship, and is prepared to embarrass the 11 drivers in his way. That dominance is annoying to fans and aggravating to the Chase for the championship contenders. It’s also pretty darn amazing. So instead of complaining about the monotony of another Johnson title march, why not pause to recognize his assault on the record books? “I’m pretty sure that dude’s Superman,” said teammate Mark Martin. But for some bizarre reason, his accomplishments aren’t properly appreciated. Someday, long after he’s retired, fans may finally ac-

knowledge Johnson as one of the greatest drivers in NASCAR history. For now, though, it’s easier to gripe about his success and blame him for a lack of drama in the madefor-excitement Chase. After narrowly missing the title in 2004 and 2005, the first two years of the Chase format, Johnson has been unstoppable. He won five races in 2006, and finished no lower than second in five consecutive Chase races to win his first title. He followed it up with a 10-win 2007 season that included four straight wins in the Chase. His average finish of 5.0 that year beat teammate Jeff Gordon, who averaged a 5.1 finish to lose the championship to his one-time protege. Last year was another amazing rout – three Chase wins and an improbable second-place finish at Atlanta that sucked the air out of Carl Edwards’ impressive challenge. It gave Johnson his third title, tying him with Cale Yarborough as the first driver to win three straight in NASCAR history. Yarborough, by the way, did it 30 years earlier. Yet nobody outside of Johnson and his No. 48 team has much of an interest in watching him roll to

another championship. Why would they? Fans grow to loathe a winner. They root against the New York Yankees, the Dallas Cowboys and Duke basketball. So when Johnson crushed the field Sunday to sweep Dover (for a second time in eight years) you could almost hear the collective groan in the Cup garage and living rooms across America. “It makes you feel a little sick,” said Edwards, the popular preseason pick to dethrone Johnson. Only Edwards finished 11th and dropped to 11th in the standings, a hole too steep to climb from if Johnson is the hunted. What’s bizarre is that Johnson isn’t even leading the points. Nope, that honor goes to sentimental favorite Martin, his 50-year-old teammate who has never won a NASCAR title. Johnson, though, is a mere 10 points behind and headed this weekend to Kansas, where he’s the defending race winner. Everybody knows he’ll run well on Sunday. Everybody knows crew chief Chad Knaus has been saving something for these final 10 races, and everybody knows Johnson turns it up a notch at title time.

Bucs bench QB Leftwich, start Johnson TAMPA, Fla. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The winless Tampa Bay Buccaneers have benched starting quarterback Byron Leftwich and replaced him with second-year pro Josh Johnson. Coach Raheem Morris made the move Monday, a day after the Bucs fell to 0-3 while gaining just 86 yards total offense in a 24-0 loss to the New York Giants. Leftwich completed 7 of 16 passes for 22 yards and one interception. Johnson played one fourth-quarter series, completing 4 of 10 passes for 36 yards and leading a drive that stalled on downs at New Yorkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 5-yard line.

Favre will be in purple â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and some pink â&#x20AC;&#x201C; vs. Pack EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Brett Favre will be in purple to face the Packers for the first time next week. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll also be wearing a little bit of pink. The NFL is honoring breast cancer awareness in October. Favre is one of four Vikings who will use pink equipment during Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game against Green Bay at the Metrodome, according to league spokesman Brian McCarthy. Chad Greenway, Chester Taylor and Antoine Winfield are the others. Designated players throughout the NFL will be wearing pink cleats, wristbands, gloves, sideline hats and captain patches during October. Favre will be facing his old team for the first time on Monday night.

Victory boosts Pirates GREENVILLE (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; East Carolina has given Skip Holtz a reason to smile again. A two-game losing streak is history, and now Holtz hopes his Pirates continue to make progress this week when they visit Marshall. Holtz said Monday that the morale was positive even during a two-game losing streak to West Virginia and North Carolina. But beating Central Florida last week was â&#x20AC;&#x153;a nice boost and shot in the arm to get a win.â&#x20AC;? East Carolina (2-2) is perfect at home this season but is winless in two road games and in recent years, the Pirates have had trouble playing in Huntington, W.Va. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re 1-1 there since the Thundering Herd joined Conference USA in 2005, including a 26-7 loss two years ago when Holtzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team could have clinched its first East Division title but â&#x20AC;&#x153;Marshall was 1-8 and kind of beat our brains in.â&#x20AC;? Holtz hopes his offense, led by sixth-year senior Patrick Pinkney, finally has things on track. Pinkney was 27 of 40 for 293 yards with a touchAP FILE down and an interception East Carolina quarterback Patrick Pinkney (15) looks to lead the Pirates to victory on in the 19-14 victory over Saturday at Marshall. The Pirates are coming off a hard-fought 19-14 victory over UCF, a significant step Central Florida. ECU has struggled in previous trips to Huntington, W. Va., going 1-1 forward for a quarterback there since the Thundering Herd joined Conference USA in 2005. who came under fire for

erratic play in the two losses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if it was a turnaround for Patrick Pinkney as much as progress,â&#x20AC;? Holtz said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought Patrick did a nice job managing the game. From a performance standpoint, we just have to keep improving.â&#x20AC;? The offense had its first 400-yard performance of the year, rolling up 403 yards against the Knights, but produced only one touchdown and two field goals in five trips inside the red zone â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a lack of production Holtz called â&#x20AC;&#x153;probably the Achillesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; heel.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we could have pushed the ball into the end zone from the red zone, we could have had a chance to empty the bench in that game,â&#x20AC;? Holtz said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From an offensive standpoint, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the thing we have to shore up right now.â&#x20AC;? Holtz also hinted at working other players into the mix at tailback, where Jonathan Williams has two fumbles in his last handful of carries. With leading rusher Dominique Lindsay â&#x20AC;&#x153;kind of doubtfulâ&#x20AC;? with a right shoulder injury, Holtz indicated Kentucky transfer Brandon Jackson and junior-college transfer Giavanni Ruffin could gain additional playing time.

N.C. Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wilson leads ACC weekly honors list GREENSBORO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; N.C. State quarterback Russell Wilson headlines the weekly honors from the ACC. The sophomore was named offensive back of the week after throwing four touchdown passes for the third straight game, this time helping the Wolfpack rally past Pittsburgh for a 38-31 win. Virginia Tech had three players honored Monday after its win against Miami. Tackle Blake DeChristopher

was named co-offensive lineman of the week, end Jason Worilds was named top defensive lineman and running back Ryan Williams was named rookie of the week. Georgia Techâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sean Bedford shared honors with DeChristopher, while teammate Morgan Burnett was named top defensive back. Florida State cornerback Greg Reid was named specialist of the week.

NEW YORK (AP) – A burst of corporate dealmaking is giving investors a shot of confidence about the economy. Stock indexes rose more than 1 percent Monday to post their biggest gains in about a month, breaking a three-day slide. The Dow Jones industrial average jumped 124 points, recouping much of what it lost last week. Large acquisitions from Abbott Laboratories and Xerox Corp. vaulted shares of drugmakers and technology companies higher, and the buying spread to other parts of the market as investors hoped that the $6 billion-plus deals could be a sign that deal activity is finally picking up a year after the financial system nearly froze. A resumption of corporate takeover deals would represent an important milepost in the economy’s recovery. Companies had grown

so worried in the past year that they were hesitant to part with cash and often had trouble lining up financing. “It’s encouraging to all investors when you see companies buy because basically what that says is they’re in a more aggressive mode as opposed to being in the fetal position,” said Mark Coffelt, portfolio manager at Empiric Funds in Austin, Texas. According to preliminary calculations, the Dow rose 124.17, or 1.3 percent, to 9,789.36, its biggest gain in more than a month. The broader Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 18.60, or 1.8 percent, to 1,062.98, and the Nasdaq composite index rose 39.82, or 1.9 percent, to 2,130.74. Four stocks rose for every one that fell on the New York Stock Exchange, where volume came to 979.3 million shares compared with 1.2 billion Friday.

natural gas and propane can expect dramatic drops, while electric heat is projected to cost slightly less. A little more than a year ago, William Foss paid more than $500 for 115 gallons of heating oil in his Portland home. The price was $4.52 a gallon and he feared it would keep going up. Foss, 62, had recently lost his job and his wife had died. But he got help from a local nonprofit’s home energy assistance pro-

gram. And in the past six months, he’s paid just $2.13 to $2.33 a gallon for three oil deliveries. While he’s feeling better about the outlook for oil prices, he’s preparing for the worst because colder winters and heavy reliance on oil heat make the Northeast vulnerable to high energy costs and price spikes. “Something could happen in the next month or two that everything starts going the other way or it

could go down,” Foss said. “If we all had a crystal ball we could look in, we would know what’s going to happen. But we don’t.” When crude oil prices surged to nearly $150 a barrel in the summer of 2008, heating oil prices rocketed to record levels. Heating oil prices have remained relatively low this year and avoided the wild price swings that plagued the market the past couple of years.

what it had been promoted to do. Enron was once the seventh-largest U.S. company. It collapsed into bankruptcy in December 2001 after years of accounting tricks could no longer hide billions of dollars in debt nor make failing ventures appear profitable.



Ohio AG takes lead in Bank of America suit COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio has taken the lead role in an aggressive securities lawsuit alleging that Bank of America Corp. concealed billions of dollars in losses and bonuses paid during the bank’s merger with Merrill Lynch. Ohio Attorney General Richard Cordray is the top lawyer representing the state’s two largest public pension systems and other investor interests worldwide. He said Monday the action is one of the largest securities lawsuits in history. The lawsuit says executives at both companies failed to disclose billions in losses and bonuses at Merrill Lynch to shareholders before a vote on the merger in 2008.

Crude rises ahead of economic reports NEW YORK – Oil prices rose Monday, rebounding after an earlier drop as the dollar lost ground and investors waited for more clues on the strength of the U.S. economic recovery. Benchmark crude for November delivery gained 2 percent, or $1.43, to $67.45 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange, after adding 13 cents on Friday. ENTERPRISE NEWS SERVICE REPORTS

Abbott buys Solvay operations NEW YORK (AP) – Abbott Laboratories on Monday said it would pay $6.6 billion for the pharmaceutical business of Belgian chemicals maker Solvay in a move to further expand internationally and add to its product portfolio. The deal is the latest in a string of drug mergers and acquisitions, and one of three announcements Monday that involved the fast-growing vaccines business. By purchasing Brussels-based Solvay, Abbott gains access to emerging markets in Eastern Europe and Asia along with

new therapeutic areas, including hormone therapies and vaccines. Solvay’s flu vaccine Influvac will give Abbott an entrant in the burgeoning vaccines market, which is currently dominated by European pharmaceutical giants like GlaxoSmithKline and Novartis. North Chicago, Ill.based Abbott already holds U.S. marketing rights for Solvay’s Trilipix and TriCor, drugs which raise “good” HDL cholesterol while reducing triglycerides and “bad” LDL cholesterol.

Johnson & Johnson gets stake in Crucell TRENTON, N.J. (AP) – Health care giant Johnson & Johnson is jumping into the increasingly hot vaccine business by taking an 18 percent stake in Dutch biotechnology company Crucell NV as J&J boosts its focus on preventive medicine and infectious diseases. Under the deal the companies announced Monday, Johnson & Johnson is spending $440 million (301.8 million euros) for new shares of Crucell in a deal focused initially on

developing a universal vaccine or treatment against influenza from Crucell’s genetically engineered antibody technology. A universal flu vaccine – one that would work against all or most strains rather than having to be reformulated every flu season – has been an elusive goal some other pharmaceutical companies have abandoned. Amid the swine flu pandemic, it has suddenly become a bit of a Holy Grail.

Federal Reserve role up for debate


Xerox CEO Ursula Burns (left) and ACS President and CEO Lynn Blodgett discuss Xerox’s acquisition of ACS on Monday.

Xerox to purchase Affiliated Computer NEW YORK (AP) – Xerox Corp. said Monday it will buy Affiliated Computer Services Inc. for $6.4 billion in cash and stock, joining the expensive race among technology companies to broaden their offerings. Xerox said the deal will create a $22 billion business that combines Xerox’s copiers, printers and document management services with the “business process out-


sourcing” of Dallas-based ACS. Outsourcers like ACS take on tasks for other companies, such as helping to manage payroll or run health care plans. Xerox’s offer amounted to a 33 percent premium over ACS’s closing stock price on Friday, although the value fell as Xerox shares lost $1.47, or 16 percent, to $7.50 in morning trading, while ACS shares

jumped $6.53, or 14 percent, to $53.78. The move takes Xerox deeper into the back-office operations of its business customers with the kind of acquisition that is popping up more and more as technology companies add a greater variety of equipment and services under a single tent. Last week Dell Inc. said it would buy Perot Systems Corp. for $3.9 billion.

WASHINGTON (AP) – The president of the World Bank said Monday he opposes giving more authority to the U.S. Federal Reserve, arguing instead that the Treasury Department is better equipped to manage financial crises. Robert Zoellick also suggested in a speech that the dollar’s role as a the world’s reserve currency may be diminishing and the United States should recognize this fact. Zoellick, a former highranking U.S. government official and investment banker, said, “it will be difficult to vest the independent and powerful technocrats at the Federal Reserve with more authority.” He said the lesson he drew from the global financial meltdown and ensuing credit crunch “is that the Treasury Department needed greater authority to pull together a bevy of different regulators.” In addition, he said, Treasury as a part of the executive branch of government would be subject to greater oversight by Congress and the American public if given additional authority. The World Bank released excerpts of Zoellick’s speech in advance of the bank’s annual meeting next week in Istanbul.
