shows the shooting of 21-year-old student Courtland Smith by an Archdale police officer. The videos do “portray the interaction between Mr. Smith and the officers immediately prior to the shooting and actions taken by the officers after the shooting,” the order states. The judge also ruled that if no charges are filed in the case, the
videos would be made available to the public. The videos also could be made public as part of evidence during a trial or, if not introduced in evidence, after any trial concludes. An attorney representing several media outlets, including The

Chris Neugent, president and CEO of Malt-O-Meal, says the company is committed to growth. Bonnie Renfro, president of the Randolph County Economic Development Commission, said the new facility is a prime example of economic development. “This is such a winwin,” Renfro said. “When you think about the 200 workers it took to build the facility and the equipment Malt-O-Meal bought from other North Carolina
companies, the economic impact has spread well beyond just what we see today.” Malt-O-Meal officials also announced increased efforts in the company’s Million Bowls program. The program originally was created to provide 1 million bowls of cereal to needy families in the state. In light of economic con-
ditions, officials said the company would donate an additional 10 servings for every bag of cereal bought until the end of the year up to 2 million servings. The cereal will be distributed through the North Carolina Association of Feeding America Food Banks. “Malt-O-Meal is an example of a good thing
happening in North Carolina,” Crisco said. “On the one hand, our statewide employment is down. On the other hand, what does North Carolina do when it has prospects? We collaborate. “When it comes to economic development, we work together.” firstname.lastname@example.org | 888-3617

Officials give green light to university plan BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER
HIGH POINT – The High Point Planning and Zoning Commission amended a portion of the University Area Plan before unanimously approving the plan at its meeting last night. Heidi Galanti, a planning administrator for the city, presented the plan, which was designed to guide the growth of the university. Don Scarborough, vice president of community relations at the university, said the university’s biggest concern with the plan was its use of the word “contiguous.” The plan states that “new campus development should be contiguous to existing campus,” meaning the university should purchase or develop property that borders its current property. Scarborough cited the University Village as not being contiguous to campus when it was constructed and asked the commission if

Sechrest Funeral Home on E. Lexington Avenue and other property surrounding HPU are in the university’s growth plan. the property, which houses two student dormitories, a swimming pool and a restaurant, would have been allowed under the plan. “Our dream would be to have the entire campus contiguous,” Scarborough said. “However, it could also be possible for a single property area, road or sub area to prevent this from happening,” he said. Commissioner Kathy Carter said the plan was meant to encourage
the university to purchase land closest to its border and develop outwardly rather than purchase land away from the university and “squeeze land owners.” The commission voted that the plan be amended to say development “should be contiguous” rather than “must be contiguous.” Scarborough issued other concerns such as the plan’s discouragement of the demolition of resi-
dential homes purchased by the university and the plan’s encouragement of students and residents to exist cohesively. “The goal of the city should be to encourage the university to develop its natural borders,” Scarborough said. Carter replied that the plan was policy and meant to encourage the university to grow a certain way. She said the city could not legally force the university to discontinue demolition of residential properties that it purchases. The commission also approved a special use permit that would allow the Piedmont Authority for Regional Transportation to build a park-and-ride facility at the northeast corner of N. Main Street and Old Plank Road. The items will go before City Council at a public hearing on Oct. 19 at 5:30 p.m. in the City Council chambers. email@example.com | 888-3617

Consultants: Development rules need overhaul BY PAT KIMBROUGH ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER
HIGH POINT – Consultants have recommended a comprehensive update of the city’s development ordinance. Representatives of Chapel Hill-based Clarion Associates told City Council and Planning and Zoning Commission members Tuesday that the rules governing development need to be updated to take into account recommendations of the Core City plan and to allow for more flexibility and incentives that encourage development. They said an update would also make the ordinance more “userfriendly.” Consultants determined that the city has different development goals for its urban core and suburban areas, and the ordinance does not recognize the differences. “Right now, that is creating some obstacles for the type of development you would like to see in both types of areas,” said Craig Richardson of Clarion Associates during a presentation of the company’s report on its findings. Their evaluation was based on a year-long process of interviews with city officials, discussion sessions

Hospitals announce flu policy Inside...
Facilities in Charlotte institute ban. 3B ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT
DAVIDSON COUNTY – Thomasville Medical Center is among several Triad hospitals Tuesday announcing a change in guidelines for visitors because of the H1N1 virus, known commonly as swine flu. Thomasville Medical Center, Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center, Forsyth Medical Center and Medical Park Hospital in Winston-Salem will restrict visitors under the age of 18 as a precaution against the spread of influenza, including H1N1, among patients. Starting Thursday, those who are under 18 will not be permitted to
visit patients, including siblings, friends or family members. The restrictions apply to hospital lobbies, waiting areas, classrooms and patient rooms. Additionally, visitation to hospital neonatal intensive care units is restricted to parents and primary caregivers only. The hospitals’ policies don’t apply to children who need emergency care or hospitalization. Lexington Memorial Hospital will implement similar restrictions on Monday. “The health systems recognize that these actions may cause some disruption to families, but emphasize that their first priority is ensuring the safest possible environment for patients and diminishing potential exposure to the flu,” according to a statement. “Until the flu incidence rate has significantly decreased, these new guidelines
will be in effect ...” Hospital representatives say one reason for the restriction is because a high ratio of all H1N1 flu cases reported in North Carolina involve children and young adults up to 24 years of age. “Further, children are often contagious before they show signs of an illness. Allowing this age group to visit in hospital patient areas presents potentially critical risks to patients,” the health systems said in the statement. Since the 18-and-younger population has been determined to be more susceptible to H1N1, visiting a hospital significantly increases the child’s risk for contracting flu, the health systems report. Other medical centers in the region and across the state and nation are implementing similar policies for the height of the flu season.
oversees the Division of Air Quality, said the agency is trying to verify the information. Three of the employees still work at the division, he said. Verizon Business has a $51.5 million contract through 2012 to provide electronics to vehicle inspection stations. Also under investigation is whether employees in the Division of Motor Vehicles accepted improper gifts from Verizon Business. DMV Commissioner Mike Robertson, who took office March 2, requested the SBI’s help after determining that criminal acts might have
occurred at the division before his arrival. The state also is trying to find out if it paid Verizon for hundreds of computers that weren’t delivered, at a cost of more than $1,700 each. The DMV has said Verizon has indicated as many as 700 computers intended for North Carolina are in a warehouse in Arizona. Verizon’s contract with the DMV calls for it to store unused computers. Jack Hoey, vice president of media relations for Verizon Business, said the company provided the DMV in August with a list of state employees who ap-

In his ruling, Long concludes that “the video is a record of criminal investigation” and not a public record as currently defined by statutes.
peared in expense reports filed by Verizon employees as having received meals and gifts. Though most of the expenses were meals, there were three non-food items: a Carolina Hurricanes ticket, the rental fee for a beach chair at a hotel and the fee for use of a hotel exercise room. “We did go to the state and make them aware of the expense items and have cooperated with them, including providing all of the expense reports that we have, and we will continue to work closely with the authorities,” Hoey said.

2nd agency investigated for accepting gifts RALEIGH (AP) – A second North Carolina agency is investigating whether workers improperly accepted gifts from a company that does business with the state. The News & Observer of Raleigh reported that Verizon Business provided documentation of meals and a Carolina Hurricanes hockey ticket the company provided free to five employees of the Division of Air Quality from 2006 to spring of this year.

with an advisory committee, field reconnaissance to evaluate the type of developments being created, a citizen preference survey and other means. To implement Core City plan recommendations – aimed at revitalizing several major urban areas – the city should consider encouraging more mixed-use development and fostering standards requiring more sidewalks, pedestrian crossings and street trees, consultants said. Offering incentives and flexibility in development standards, such as modifying parking rules and buffer requirements in some instances, also was suggested, although some council members sounded skeptical about this idea. “I’m just curious how we go about creating those things without seeming arbitrary,” said Councilman Bill Bencini. Councilman John Faircloth added, “When we start talking about controlling design, I think that gets into really dangerous territory.” The consultants’ report will be placed on future agendas of the council and planning and zoning commission for further consideration.

Israeli envoys heading to U.S. for peace talks JERUSALEM â€“ The chief Palestinian negotiator on Tuesday played down expectations for President Barack Obamaâ€™s latest attempt to restart peace talks, saying key differences with Israel make it difficult for negotiations to resume. The negotiator, Saeb Erekat, spoke ahead of talks in Washington this week with Obamaâ€™s Mideast envoy, George Mitchell. The former U.S. senator is holding separate meetings with Israeli and Palestinians teams in hopes of reviving the long-stalled peace talks.
Bid to arrest Ehud Barak in Britain rejected LONDON â€“ A British judge has rejected a Palestinian attempt to have Israeli defense chief Ehud Barak arrested over his countryâ€™s assault on Gaza last winter. Lawyer Tayab Ali says he has failed to get a British judge to issue an arrest warrant for the visiting Israeli defense minister on the grounds of alleged war crimes committed during the attack on Gaza, which began late last year.
Group: Guinea protest death toll climbs to 157 CONAKRY, Guinea â€“ Guineaâ€™s government said Tuesday it would investigate why troops opened fire on protesters at a pro-democracy rally. A human rights group said 157 people were killed and more than 1,000 were injured. While saying it would investigate, the government continued to maintain the protest was illegal. It also said far fewer people died than reported.
Military asks Hondurans for peaceful solution TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras â€“ The general who oversaw the ouster of President Manuel Zelaya implored all sectors of Honduran society to join in resolving the countryâ€™s deepening crisis Tuesday, a message that seemed aimed at calming an uproar over a government order suspending civil liberties.

Romeo Vasquezâ€™s comments on Channel 5 television came hours after interim President Roberto Micheletti said he would accept congressional calls for him to reverse the emergency decree suspending civil liberties that he had announced on Sunday.
MANILA, Philippines (AP) â€“ Flood victims trudged through sludge to crowded relief centers in the Philippines on Tuesday, as the death toll rose to 246 from water that inundated the homes of nearly 2 million people. Tropical Storm Ketsana brought the worst flooding to the Southeast Asian country in four decades, chasing some victims to their rooftops to escape the rising water and sweeping others down raging rivers. The storm struck Saturday in Manila, one of the worldâ€™s largest cities with about 12 million people, and dumped more than a monthâ€™s worth of rain in just 12 hours. Ketsana strengthened AP and crashed into central Gingery Comprendio stands between the coffins of her two daughters on Tuesday Vietnam on Tuesday, killin suburban Quezon City, north of Manila, Philippines.

Taliban attacks on roadways spread path of fear KABUL (AP) â€“ Taliban militants are sowing fear along Afghanistanâ€™s highways with steppedup checkpoints, hijackings and bombs â€“ including one Tuesday that killed at least 30 bus passengers in the south. Authorities say the attacks, often carried out by only a handful of militants, are part of a psychological campaign to convince civilians Taliban control is spreading. â€œIt is quite possible for
a group of three to five insurgents to come out on the highway and attack a convoy,â€? said the Interior Ministry spokesman, Zemarai Bashary. Meanwhile, a top U.N. envoy warned Tuesday that Afghanistan was facing â€œdecision-time,â€? including certification of results of the flawed presidential elections and its decision on whether to pursue a peace process with the rebels to try to end the 8-year-old war.

U.S. to send home 4,000 more troops from Iraq WASHINGTON (AP) – The top general in Iraq is sending home 4,000 more U.S. troops by the end of October as the American military winds down the sixyear war. Army Gen. Ray Odierno said in remarks prepared for a congressional hearing today that the number of U.S. soldiers in Iraq will total about 120,000 over the next month.
He said that will mean about 4,000 fewer troops than are in Iraq now – about the size of an Army brigade. “As we go forward, we will thin our lines across Iraq in order to reduce the risk and sustain stability through a deliberate transition of responsibilities to the Iraqi security forces,” Odierno said in a statement he was to deliver before the House Armed Services Committee.
Accelerator risk leads to recall WASHINGTON (AP) – Toyota Motor Corp. said Tuesday it will recall 3.8 million vehicles in the United States, the company’s largest-ever U.S. recall, to address problems with a removable floor
mat that could cause accelerators to get stuck and lead to a crash. The recall will involve the Camry and Prius. Separate warnings were sent to owners of Toyota and Lexus vehicles.
A copy of the testimony was obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press. A Defense Department official confirmed Odierno planned to announce at the House hearing that he is reducing the number of brigades in Iraq, as has been long expected. In his eight-page statement, Odierno cited data showing that the monthly number of attacks in Iraq have dramati-
cally dropped over the last two years – from more than 4,000 in August 2007 to about 600 last month. He also said that far fewer al-Qaida and foreign fighters remain in Iraq, and most of those who are left are criminals and disenfranchised Iraqis who have been recruited by what Odierno described as a “small ideological core” of insurgents.
Who Else Wants To Get Rid Of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Without Surgery? If You’re Over 30 And Having Wrist or Hand Pain, You Must Read What These Studies Reveal About Carpal Tunnel! Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition that affects everything in your life. It’s difﬁcult to sleep and painful to work. You’re unable to enjoy life to its fullest. One female patient said it like this… “I dread going to bed, I dread sweeping, doing dishes…any kind of household chores I dread – because of the pain.” Do You Have Any Of These Symptoms?
• A thorough analysis of your exam and x-ray ﬁndings so we can map out your pain free plan
• Pins and needles in the hands • Pain in the wrists 485074
• Numbness or pain in the arms • Difﬁculty grabbing objects • Elbow pain
My name is Dr. Kris Jonasson, owner of Health One Chiropractic . I’ve seen hundreds of carpal tunnel sufferers leave my ofﬁce pain free in the past 10 years. Many patients tell me they wished they’d found me sooner. Suffering for years was agonizing for them. I want to let you know there is real hope… You Have An Option Other Than Drugs And Surgery…One That Really Works Scientiﬁc studies have proven that chiropractic is effective in helping carpal tunnel patients be pain free. One study showed that with chiropractic care, patients had “signiﬁcant improvement in perceived comfort and function, nerve conduction and ﬁnger sensation overall.” – JMPT 1998
• You’ll see everything ﬁrst hand and ﬁnd out if this amazing treatment will be your pain solution, like it has been for so many other patients. Until October 14, 2009 you can get everything I’ve listed here for only $25. The normal price for this type of evaluation including x-rays is $175, so you’re saving a considerable amount by taking me up on this offer. Federal recipients excluded. IF YOU DECIDE TO PURCHASE ADDITIONAL TREATMENT, YOU HAVE THE LEGAL RIGHT TO CHANGE YOUR MIND WITHIN 3 DAYS AND RECEIVE A REFUND.
Feel the Improvement – and Say “Yes” to Life Again With my evaluation we’ll be able ﬁnd the cause of your carpal tunnel and then correct it. Think of how you’ll feel in just a few short weeks. Remember what it was like before you had carpal tunnel problems. When you were pain free and could enjoy everything life had to offer. It can be that way again. Don’t neglect your problem any longer – don’t wait until it’s too late. As you begin to see motion returning to your joints, you’re preventing and reducing chances of disability and a crippling future.
Another research study concluded… “Signiﬁcant increase in grip strength and normalization of motor and sensory latencies were noted. Orthopedic tests were negative. Symptoms dissipated.” – JMPT 1994 Also, an often-overlooked cause of carpal tunnel symptoms can come from nerve roots near the spine. A study in the Lancet journal showed that up to 75% of carpal tunnel patients also had a nerve problem in their neck. Dr. Susan MacKinnon, professor of surgery at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, said the high failure rate of surgery has caused her to rethink the cause of carpal tunnel syndrome.
Soon you’ll be able to live life like a normal person again, without carpal tunnel pain – able to play with your kids, enjoy time with friends, and not have to worry that your pain will hit you at just the wrong time. Here’s what to do now: Call 476-9600 today and we can get started with your consultation, exam and x-rays as soon as there’s an opening in the schedule. Our ofﬁce is called Health One Chiropractic and you can ﬁnd us in the Food Lion strip behind Mr. Gatti’s Pizza.

She states even after surgery problems like neck stiffness and shoulder pain persist in patients. Could This Be Your Solution To Carpal Tunnel Pain?
P.S. Are you taking pain pills or considering having surgery on your carpal tunnel pain?
For 10 days only, I’m running a very special offer where you can ﬁnd out if this could be your solution to carpal tunnel pain.
If so, perhaps you should wait and try a natural approach. Surgery is expensive, takes time to recover, and many doctors agree it should only be used as a last resort.

P.P.S. Nothing’s worse than feeling great mentally, but physically feeling held back from life because your wrists and hand hurts – and the pain just won’t go away!
• An in-depth consultation about your problem where I will listen…really listen…to the details of your case.
Don’t neglect your hands and wrists any longer, disabling you for life. Take me up on my offer and call today 4760-9600.
• A complete neuromuscular examination. • A full set of specialized x-rays to determine if a pinched nerve in the neck is contributing to your pain.
Don’t live another day like this. Call and schedule for your evaluation. 476-9600

Nobody wins war in Afghanistan I’m writing concerning our nation’s involvement in winless wars, such as Korea, Vietnam, and at the present Afghanistan and Iraq. We got into Korea shortly after World War II, and our President Truman called it a little-choice war. It became a major disaster for our troops that were attacked by the Chinese and driven back to the 38th Parallel, where there has been a truce more than 60 years. Also, a few years later, the French were beaten in Vietnam. So “Uncle Sam” decided to step in and show them a thing or two about winning a war. After a

You would think that we would have learned our lesson but, several years after Russia pulled out of their ill-fated war in Afghanistan, for some reason that is beyond me, we went into this caldron of death to show the world again how to win a war. After a number of years, we are stillbogged down there and still sending our choice young men in this endless war. Some might get the idea that I am a pacifist, but I’m not against all wars.

emembering those teachers who went out of their way to help most of us during our school days, it’s always gratifying when outstanding educators in our local schools are recognized for the jobs they do. It’s even more gratifying to High Pointers this year because both the principal of the year and the teacher of the year for Guilford County Schools are based in schools in High Point. Cheri Keels, in her third year as principal at Triangle Lake Montessori School after serving as assistant principal at Allen Jay Middle School, typically for her, told the Celebrating Excellence in Education presentation ceremony audience, “Thank you to my staff, students and parents for your continued support,” adding, “without you I couldn’t do this job.” Likewise, Terri Roberts, a former journalist and health department employee who has been teaching advanced learners in kindergarten through fifth grade at Southwest Elementary, admits she has developed “a real addiction to the classroom” and declared, “We have the very best staff, the best PTO and the best students anyone could hope for.” Notice, please, that these two educators praise their colleagues, students and – use special focus – parents at their respective schools. Parent involvement makes so much difference in how well a school, any school, functions and how well it serves all of its students. But don’t congratulate just Keels and Roberts. Be sure to praise Deanna Wynn, Southern Middle science teacher; Darren Corbett, Grimsley High English teacher; Jennifer Caligan, Nathanael Greene Elementary fifth-grade science and social studies teacher; and Joan Kimmel, Weaver Academy English teacher, who were other finalists for top honors. As author Henry Adams noted, “A teacher affects eternity; he(/she) can never tell where his(/her) influence stops.”
Parents also play pivotal role in school success.

‘Walking the walk’ isn’t something today’s kids can do
t was a long walk for a 4-year-old. It happened in 1966. My older sister Krissy, eager to get me out of her hair, gave me a coin she’d made from a piece of cardboard. “You can buy candy with it,” she said. Candy was a rarity in our home, but I knew where to buy some. I slipped out the back door and made my way through the woods and onto Diane Drive. It was another 200 yards to the “little store,” the momand-pop shop at the bottom of the hill. I entered the store and reached my grubby hand above my head and set my fake coin on the counter. Beneath the counter, through the glass, was a spectacular display of penny candy. I stood there mesmerized by the incredible potpourri of sweets. Unbeknownst to me a great hullabaloo was taking place at my house. Krissy and Kathy, 7 and 9 respectively, had been instructed to keep an eye on me while my mother went downstairs with a load of laundry. When my mother returned a few minutes later, I was nowhere to be found. Kathy, apparently, had gone upstairs to her bedroom. Krissy and I were left together for only a few minutes – just enough time for her to cut out the coin and give it to me (though I don’t think she expected her runt brother to walk all the way to the little store). Panic overcame my mother as she searched the house – though she’d soon have the situation under control. This story came to mind as I read a recent article in The New York Times on kids and walking. Today’s parents are in such a state of worry, most won’t let their children walk anywhere alone. It’s routine for parents to drive their kids to and from school – even if they are 10, 11 or 12 and even if the school is only a few blocks away. At some schools, there is a rigorous process for picking children up. Parents display their kids’ names on their dashboards. A school official radios to the building and the kids are escorted, one at a time, to the cars. Parents who attempt to buck our worry-prone culture – one lady allowed her 10-year-old son to
walk a mile to soccer practice – face the wrath of family, neighbors and local authorities. When a police officer saw the boy walking alone, he stopped him and drove him to practice. The officer reprimanded his OPINION mom and told her she would have faced child endangerment had Tom anything happened to her son. Purcell To be sure, we’re an uptight, ■■■ control-freak culture these days. Our paranoia is stoked by sensationalistic news stories and 24/7 coverage about children who have been abducted, but our fears are not entirely warranted. The Times offers an interesting statistic: There are roughly 40 million elementary schoolage children in America. Each year, 115 children are abducted –- but more than 250,000 are in car wrecks. Which shows how times have changed – and not necessarily for the better. When I was 10 in 1972, I was permitted to roam all over the place, so long as my mother knew where I was going. I am certainly sympathetic to the challenge parents face today. A friend of mine is determined that both her children experience some of the freedom she knew as a child. She allows her kids to go into the woods to play – but she is filled with terror as she attempts to monitor them, unnoticed, from the window. In any event, on the day I disappeared in 1966, my mother finally got my sister Krissy to ’fess up. Shortly after I arrived at the store, my mother pulled our station wagon into the store’s parking lot and rushed inside to hug me. Lucky for her this happened in 1966. Had it happened now, she’d have to deal with the police and child welfare officials and maybe even an embarrassing report on the evening news.

COMMENTARY THE HIGH POINT ENTERPRISE WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 2009 www.hpe.com
Be wary of dangers of the Brainey Bunch M
any people, including some conservatives, have been very impressed with how brainy the president and his advisers are. But that is not quite as reassuring as it might seem. It was, after all, Franklin D. Roosevelt’s brilliant “brains trust” advisers whose policies are now increasingly recognized as having prolonged the Great Depression of the 1930s, while claiming credit for ending it. The Great Depression ended only when the Second World War put an end to many New Deal policies. FDR himself said that “Dr. New Deal” had been replaced by “Dr. Win-the-War.” But those today who are for big spending like to credit wartime big spending for bringing the Great Depression to an end. They never ask the question as to why previous depressions had always ended on their own, much faster than the one under FDR, and without government intervention or massive government spending. Brainy folks were also present in Lyndon Johnson’s administration, especially in the Pentagon, where Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara’s brilliant “whiz kids” tried to micro-manage the Vietnam war, with disastrous results. There is usually only a limited amount of damage that can be done by dull or stupid people. For creating a truly monumental disaster, you need people with high IQs. Such people have been told all their lives how brilliant they are, until finally they feel forced to admit it, with all due modesty. But they not only tend to over-estimate their own brilliance, more fundamentally they tend to
over-estimate how important brilliance itself is when dealing OPINION with real world Thomas problems. Sowell Many ■■■ crucial things in life are learned from experience, rather than from clever thoughts or clever words. Indeed, a gift for the clever phrasing so much admired by the media can be a fatal talent, especially for someone chosen to lead a government. Make no mistake about it, Adolf Hitler was brilliant. His underlying beliefs may have been half-baked and his hatreds overwhelming, but he was a genius when it came to carrying out his plans politically, based on those beliefs and hatreds. Starting from a position of Germany’s military weakness in the early 1930s, Hitler not only built up Germany’s war-making potential, he did so in ways that minimized the danger that his potential victims would match his military build-up with their own. He said whatever soothing words they wanted to hear that would spare them the cost of military deterrence and the pain of contemplating another war. He played some of the most highly educated people of his time for fools-- not only foreign political leaders but also members of the intelligentsia. The editor of The Times of London filtered out reports that his own foreign correspondents in Germany sent him about the evils and dangers of the Nazis. In the United States, W.E.B. Du Bois – with a Ph.D. from Harvard – said that dictatorship in Germany was “abso-
lutely necessary to get the state in order.” In an age when facts seem to carry less weight than the visions of brilliant and charismatic leaders, it is more important than ever to look at the actual track records of those brilliant and charismatic leaders. After all, Hitler led Germany into military catastrophe and left much of the country in ruins. Even in a country which suffered none of the wartime destruction that others suffered in the 20th century, Argentina began that century as one of the 10 richest nations in the world – ahead of France and Germany – and ended it as such an economic disaster that no one would even compare it to France or Germany. Politically brilliant and charismatic leaders, promoting reckless government spending – of whom Juan Peron was the most prominent, but by no means alone – managed to create an economic disaster in a country with an abundance of natural resources and a country that was spared the stresses that wars inflicted on other nations in the 20th century. Someone recently pointed out how much Barack Obama’s style and strategies resemble those of Latin American charismatic despots-- the takeover of industries by demagogues who never ran a business, the rousing rhetoric of resentment addressed to the masses and the personal cult of the leader promoted by the media. But do we want to become the world’s largest banana republic? THOMAS SOWELL is a North Carolina native and senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

We need to target hate-crime perpetrators
he rock was hurled through the victim’s open window at approximately 11:30 p.m. on the evening of Sept. 17. As if the act of throwing the rock was not enough, the perpetrator had attached a short message to his vessel. “I hope it hit you in the (sexual expletive) head (expletive),” the note read. “You don’t deserve life like the rest of the world. It’s bad enough without all the gay crap pulling people down. It’s sick, unnatural, and death is almost too good for you. Almost.” The note was intended for a Guilford College student who lives in the dorm in which the rock was found. Young and gay, he has chosen not to be identified by the press, although he has contributed an anonymous letter to the college’s student newspaper, The Guilfordian, expressing his appreciation for the continued support from the Guilford community. This wasn’t the first time such a thing had happened: Three days earlier, the same unknown person had left a note on the student’s door which read as follows: “Die you MF (expletive). Nobody wants your kind on campus.” Thirty-three states recognize crimes based on a victim’s sexual orientation as hate crimes, but North Carolina is not one of them. Should the perpetrator of the recent bias incident at Guilford be caught, he or she will be prosecuted as if the notes made no threats about the anonymous student’s sexuality. According to a Sept. 10 WWAY News article, Assistant District Attorney James Blanton said, “Sexual orientation is not one of the protected classes. If someone commits a misdemeanor assault based on the fact that the victim has a different sexual orientation that they’re not satisfied with, it would not bump it up to a felony.” North Carolina equality activists are currently trying to change that. House Bill 207, otherwise known as the Safer Communities Act, expands what is currently titled the Ethnic Intimida-
tion Act to include crimes motivated by age, gender, disability, and sexual orientation. It will be addressed in the 2009-10 session. On a larger scale, TEEN the Local Law EnforceVIEW ment Hate Crimes Prevention Act, unofMeredith ficially known as the Jones Matthew Shepard Act, ■■■ would alter the 1969 federal hate crime law to include gender, disability, sexual orientation, or gender identity. Rep. Virginia Foxx R-5th, memorably denounced the bill, calling Matthew Shepard’s murder in 1998, during which he was robbed, pistol-whipped, tortured, tied to a fence, and left to die, “a very unfortunate incident that happened where a young man was killed, but we know that that young man was killed in the commitment of a robbery. It wasn’t because he was gay. This – the bill was named for him, hate crimes bill was named for him, but it’s really a hoax that that continues to be used as an excuse for passing these bills.” Unlike the majority of the public after the publication of her statement, it’s not the word “hoax” that I find upsetting. People have, do, and will come up with conspiracy theories forever and beyond. It’s the word “excuse.” “Excuse” assumes that there is a malicious agenda behind efforts like the Matthew Shepard Act, and yet – shouldn’t we be proud to support bills that protect victims of violent crimes of any sort, hate-based or otherwise? Sexual orientation is only one of the many illegitimate reasons people find to hurt each other. When the next rock could come through my window, or yours, it’s in both of our interests to prosecute hate crimes to the fullest extent of the law.

Brain Oxygen-Boosting Secret Energizes Mind, Mood and Memory New pill can help sharpen focus, clear away “brain fog,” and erase 15 years of lost memory power! For those readers seriously concerned or even embarrassed by forgetting that important name, date or to-do item again, here’s some welcome news! A world-renowned brain research university has announced the successful testing of a memory pill that can reclaim as much as 10, even 15 years of mental decline and lost brain power. It’s a fast-acting formula developed by US clinical research scientist and best-selling author Joshua Reynolds that took years to perfect. For close to 40 years, Reynolds studied more than 1.5 million human brains, analyzing countless brain scans of older people and researching thousands of natural ingredients. Procera AVH contains the three premier brain energy nutrients in precise, clinically tested doses. Reynolds calls acetyl-lcarnitine, huperzine and vinpocetine, “the 3 Miracle Memory Molecules!” Are Aging Brains Starved for Oxygen?
Reynolds explains his formula’s success. “It’s a simple concept; an aging
brain can’t catch its breath. Once you reach 50, you may have already lost half your brain power. At that age, your brain is literally gasping for oxygen.” “With each passing birthday, less and less oxygen gets to your starving brain cells as a result of toxic build-up and impaired neurotransmitter capacity,” he adds. “Severely depleted neurotransmitters dull your cognitive powers, constricting your ability to concentrate, to remember things, and to make even the simplest decisions.” “Procera AVH Àxes all of that,” he says. Users report that mental focus returns and memory powers snap back to where they were 10, even 15 years ago. “I was forgetting my employees’ names and it was really embarrassing,” says user Jeff P. “After a week on Procera, I started remembering them again and I was much more focused and self-conÀdent.” Procera AVH increases the blood circulation in the brain, Áooding oxygen-starved cells with fresh supplies of energizing oxygen and vital brain nutrients. It gets the neurons Àred up again!
Memory pill ingredient…”lights up aging brains like a Christmas tree! 100% Energizing!”
The result? Users say the effects are felt quickly, like putting on a pair of prescription eye glasses for the very Àrst time. Everything becomes clear and focused like when we were young. “It’s amazing, I felt sharper, more focused and alive in just minutes,” says Penny S. Not yet available in stores, Reynolds is now making this clinically tested, non-prescription formula available risk-free. All New Users Receive Free Bonus Bottle!

Senate panel rejects government health insurance option WASHINGTON (AP) â€“ In a long-anticipated showdown, liberal Democrats twice failed on Tuesday to inject a governmentrun insurance option into sweeping health care legislation taking shape in the Senate, despite bipartisan agreement that private insurers must change their ways. The two votes marked a victory for Montana Democrat Max Baucus, the
Senate Finance Committee chairman, who is hoping to push his middle-ofthe-road measure through the panel by weekâ€™s end. It also kept alive the possibility that at least one Republican may yet swing behind the overhaul, a key goal of both Baucus and the White House. The developments occurred as Democrats in the House sought savings to reduce their companion
legislation to roughly $900 billion over a decade, the price tag President Barack Obama has suggested. One option under consideration would reduce the number of individuals and families eligible for federal health coverage subsidies to those earning less than 400 percent of poverty, or about $43,000 for a single person and $88,000 for a family of four, officials said, com-
menting only on condition of anonymity. The subsidies are designed to make insurance more affordable, and account for a significant percentage of spending in the bill. Without disclosing any of the details of a mara-
thon closed-door leadership meeting, Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, DMd., told reporters, â€œItâ€™s hard work, but weâ€™re determined to get it (the billâ€™s cost) down.â€? If anything, the health care debate was growing

In exchange for the guilty pleas, the judge sentenced the women to life in prison.

NYC terror suspect remains in jail NEW YORK â€“ As a suspected al-Qaida operative pleaded not guilty Tuesday to plotting a bomb attack in New York, the cityâ€™s police commissioner pronounced the threat neutralized and said there is nothing to fear from the defendantâ€™s three alleged accomplices.

Main St. The Embers will perform at the concert, and tickets are $5. A long-standing tradition in Greensboro, the series also was held in High Point this year to raise additional funds for the society and to revitalize the downtown area. About $38,000 has been raised by the series so far, according to Tommy

Main Street and Lexington Avenue, where the concerts are held, was identified by The City Project (formerly the Core City group) for future growth. Lineberry said activity from the concerts seems to be leaking over into local businesses and restaurants afterwards.
“This has been so successful,” he said. “The city of High Point and its citizens have opened their arms to us and done everything they could to make sure this works.” Lineberry said the most important aspect of the event is to raise money for children who need to find good homes. “For our organiza-
tion, it’s all about raising awareness and money for the kids,” he said. Organizers will place sand in the parking lot and decorate the area to look like the beach. Food from local restaurants will be available, and concertgoers may buy beer, wine and other beverages.

Utility plans lake for S.C. nuclear plant CHARLOTTE (AP) – A North Carolina utility plans to create a 620-acre lake to provide water for a proposed nuclear reactor in northern South Carolina. The Charlotte Observer reported Tuesday that Duke Energy wants to build a backup water supply for the proposed reactor along the Broad River in Cherokee County, S.C. The industrial lake would supplement a smaller water supply created during Duke’s first attempt to build a nuclear plant at the site, an effort stopped in 1982. Duke has not made a final decision on building the reactor. Utility spokeswoman Rita Sipe says the company is reviewing the water needed to cool the proposed reactor. Tom Clements with Friends of the Earth in Columbia says the demands for the nuclear plant and a new coalfired plant farther upstream could damage the river.

CHARLOTTE (AP) – Hospitals in North Carolina’s largest city are taking a new tack in the effort to prevent the spread of flu to patients by banning visits by children under the age of 18. The Charlotte Observer reported that hospital officials said they couldn’t remember issuing such a blanket restriction on visits by children in the past. The ban goes into effect Thursday. Carolinas HealthCare System and Novant Health announced the move in a joint statement Monday. They say it will remain in effect until flu cases have declined significantly, probably in several months. Health officials say the number of flu cases is typical of wintertime peaks even though it’s early in the season. “We know this change poses an inconvenience to families with patients in area facilities,” said Dr. Stephen Wallenhaupt, chief medical officer for Novant, which owns Presbyterian Healthcare. “But it is important to make this change effective now to limit the spread and impact of flu.

Both hospital systems are also asking adults not to visit if they have flulike symptoms, such as sore throat, coughing, body ache or fever greater than 100 degrees. And they’re also encouraging employees to get flu vaccinations.

Readers: I’ll have more on this tomorrow. DEAR ABBY is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.
ear Abby: On July 23, “Wondering” asked why President Obama is considered to be African-American and you responded that the term “AfricanAmerican” is used in this country as a label that describes skin color. However, in the U.S. the term is generally applied to black Americans of slave ancestry. Before the Civil War we were African-American slaves, not considered fully human by the U.S. Constitution. After the Civil War and the outlawing of slavery, former slaves gained citizenship through amendments to the Constitution but were not able to exercise the full rights of citizenship. Most former slaves wanted to just be “Americans” with all the rights and privileges associated with it – but because of the color of their skin were discriminated against and given secondclass citizenship. The term “AfricanAmerican” is the result of a search for identity by these new Americans, former slaves and their descendants. We were called by many names – most of them negative, such as “Negro,” “Colored,” “African,” the infamous “N-word,” “AfroAmerican” and finally, “black.” All of these at one time we considered negative because they didn’t represent self-identification. The black power movement occurred when Black Americans changed the negative term “black” to the posi-

These geysers, the N.C. Zooâ€™s newest exhibit, were built to enhance and enrich the visitorsâ€™ experience and to replicate actual eruptions. activity that builds up pressure underground and erupts periodically. Groundwater circulating under the Earthâ€™s surface becomes heated by the hot rock below and moves toward the surface through geyser tubes or channels. As the heated water rises, it follows these channels leading upward. The underground water becomes progressively hotter, but it will not vaporize in the geyser channels because of the greatly increased pressure exerted by the weight of the overlying water. Finally, the steam expands as it nears the top of the water column. At a critical point, the steam bubbles actually lift the water above, causing the geyser to overflow. Then system pressure decreases, resulting in violent boiling at the surface. Eruptions continue as long as the geyserâ€™s wa-
ter remains hot enough to push water out of the geyser opening. Eventually, either the water will cool down enough for the eruption to stop or the system will run out of water. Then the cycle starts again. While most geysers erupt through this superheated water system, there are also cold-water geysers that are driven by carbon dioxide-rich water trapped beneath the earthâ€™s surface. When the built-up pressure in a cold-water geyser decreases, the carbon dioxide bubbles in the water expand, pushing water out as an eruption. There are thought to be only about a dozen of these cold-water geysers in the world, most coming from man-made bore holes. The zooâ€™s geysers are another example of how the park has tried to immerse visitors in the

he North Carolina Zooâ€™s newest exhibit doesnâ€™t house mammals or reptiles or amphibians or even exotic plants â€“ but geysers, five of them, to be exact. Although these new features are man-made, they erupt with the same grace and beauty as their natural-phenomenon counterparts. In nature, geysers are vents in the Earthâ€™s surface where pressure builds and periodically ejects columns of hot water and steam into the air. At the ZOO TALES zoo, the idea was to Tom tie-in the Gillespie exhibitâ€™s â– â– â– animals â€“ elk and bison â€“ with the geographic area of Wyoming and Yellowstone National Park, where geysers are normally found. At the zoo, itâ€™s an enrichment experience for visitors, who can feel the spray and sense the excitement of the eruption. No worry, though. At ambient air temperature, these are considerably cooler than the boiling hot-water eruptions of natural geysers. â€œOld Faithfulâ€? geyser in Yellowstone National Park, Wyo., is probably the worldâ€™s best known geyser, erupting every 60-90 minutes and blasting thousands of gallons of boiling hot water 100-200 feet into the air. At the zoo, visitors can experience five geysers with varying spouts (the highest being about 15 feet) but at considerably cooler temperatures. Despite the unbelievable forces that drive geyser eruptions, they are among the earthâ€™s rarest and most fragile natural phenomena. Factors such as earthquakes and landslides can alter a geyserâ€™s eruptions or destroy it altogether. Worldwide, there are thought to be only about 1,000 geysers, and most of those are located in Yellowstone. All known geysers occur in just five countries: the United States, Russia, Chile, New Zealand and Iceland. But scientists have spotted a geyser-like eruption on Jupiterâ€™s moon. All the earthâ€™s eruptions occur where there is geologically recent volcanic activity and a source of hot rock below the surface. The process begins as water migrates down to the geyserâ€™s plumbing system through fissures, or openings, in the ground. Miles deep, the water at the bottom of this giant plumbing system is under incredible pressure from the water above it. The geyser system is much like a giant pressure cooker. In simplest terms, a natural geyser is a special type of hot spring or other hydrothermal
exhibits to enrich their experience. Conceived more than a year ago, the exhibit took five months to build, with the zooâ€™s design staff doing the majority of the construction â€“ except the â€œplumbing.â€? Zoo visitors can daily view â€œeruptionsâ€? at the third overlook of the Prairie exhibit in the North America region.
