BRIDGE UPGRADES Groundbreaking ceremony kicks off Yadkin River bridge work BY DARRICK IGNASIAK ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

DAVIDSON COUNTY – Davidson County Board of Commissioners Chairman Max Walser called Wednesday’s groundbreaking for the Interstate 85 bridge over the Yadkin River a “historic event.” “It’s been a long, long road,” he said of the process to get the bridge replaced. Walser was joined by N.C. Gov. Bev Perdue and other local and state officials for a ceremony about a mile from the bridge. The $136 million project includes widening nearly 3.5 miles of the interstate and replacing eight bridges, including the bridges over the Yadkin. “This highway is a major economic artery for North Carolina,” Perdue said. “None of us could afford for anything bad to happen on this road or this bridge.” According to the N.C. Department of Transportation, more than 60,000 vehicles cross the bridge every day. That number is expected to grow to 112,000 vehicles per day by 2015. The bridge, which dates back to the era of President Dwight Eisenhower, has previously been ranked as one of the worst bridges in

Built in the 1950s, the bridge shows visible signs of aging and has a lifespan that ends this year. “I have been riding over this bridge for years since we moved to North Carolina,” Perdue said. “I’m the first to tell you every time I come across it, I pray that

it’s not my car or any of the cars in North Carolina. It’s been dangerous.” Pat Ivey, division engineer out of the DOT office in Winston-Salem, said the entire project should be completed by January 2013. “Traffic will actually be placed on the bridge probably before that,” he said,

adding there should be no detours. “We designed this project so that we can keep two lanes in each direction for the majority of this,” he said. “There may be some very short lane closures when we are moving traffic and stuff, but overall two lanes in each direction

through the entire duration.” Flatiron-Lane, a joint venture of Flatiron Constructors Inc. and the Lane Construction Corp., has been awarded contracts for the construction of the bridge.

Lexington plate agency to reopen soon BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

LEXINGTON – The sole license plate agency in Lexington will reopen next week in a new location after it closed last spring. Becky Klass has been hired as the contractor for the agency. She said it will reopen on Oct. 5 at 27 Plaza Parkway in the space formerly occupied by Radio

Shack. Standard hours of operation will be 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The agency was closed April 9 when the previous contractor and some employees were arrested for filing false information regarding motor vehicle applications. Marge Howell, spokesperson for the N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles, said a yearlong investigation occurred

before the arrests were made. The DMV advertised the job opening for a two-week period from May to June, and Klass was selected from a pool of 39 applicants for the position, Howell said. Klass, a member of the Lexington City Council, said the agency will have five full-time employees. She said she decided to move the office to “make a fresh start,”

and because the 2,000-square-foot space is larger than the last location. “Some have told me they’re glad that I had it moved,” she said by phone from Raleigh on Wednesday, where she and the employees were undergoing training to run the agency. “They say it’s in a more central location. They’re

HIGH POINT – It started with some water leaks this week. Shadybrook Elementary School leaders now know for sure their school needs a new roof. The leaking roof forced teachers to move students out of four classrooms on Monday. Since then, a tarp has covered portions of the roof while engineers evaluate the problems and work on a replacement design, Principal Dennis Foster said Wednesday. “We have just one class displaced now,” Foster said. “We hope to have roofers starting in two to three weeks to fix the problems. We are sitting well for now. We are using trash cans to catch the drips so we won’t have puddles.” School district leaders agree the situation is urgent, Foster said. The roof over much of the 40-year-old building needs repairs. “And it will be very

Repairing leaky school roofs has been a top priority for the district. The work list includes repairs for several schools, including T.W. Andrews High School, where workers replacing a heating and air conditioning system this summer found problems. Roof work will continue through December, said Principal Rodney Wilds, as the top floor remains vacant. The original 60-yearold campus buildings were renovated and the campus was expanded through the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, according to county records. “We managed to work

things out and are so pleased we did not have to move students next door to Welborn Middle School,” Wilds said. “We wanted to keep all our students in one building.” While the $1.2 million HVAC project continues, the Guilford County Board of Education will have to transfer money to pay for the roof repairs. The roof over the school gymnasium and the cafeteria also need repairs, according to district project lists. “So far, everything is going according to plan,” Wilds said. | 888-3626

Political forums take place at City Hall


GUILFORD COUNTY – Democratic Guilford County Commissioner Skip Alston is endorsing fellow commissioner Bruce Davis of High Point as Davis makes an unaffiliated bid for the state Senate this fall. Alston held a fundraiser at his Greensboro home for the Davis campaign Tuesday night. Alston said Wednesday more than 100 people attended the event. Though Davis is a longtime Democrat, he’s running for the 28th State Senate District this fall as an unaffiliated candidate after gathering enough petition signatures earlier this year. The Democratic nominee is Gladys Robinson of Pleasant Garden, who won the May 4 Democratic primary, while the Republican nominee is primary winner Trudy Wade, also a Greensboro City Council member. The general election is Nov. 2. Davis launched his unaffiliated campaign in March after Sen. Katie Dorsett at first filed for re-election in the 28th Senate District, then withdrew on the final day of the candidate filing period Feb. 26 as Robin-



The 28th State Senate District includes parts of High Point and Greensboro and stretches through southern Guilford County. The district has 57 percent registered Democratic voters, 28 percent registered Republicans and 15 percent unaffiliated. Retiring Sen. Katie Dorsett, D-Guilford, of Greensboro, has won the seat comfortably since the district was created for the 2002 election season. The general election candidates seeking to succeed Dorsett in the Nov. 2 general election are Democratic nominee Gladys Robinson of Pleasant Garden, Republican nominee Trudy Wade of Greensboro and unaffiliated candidate Bruce Davis of High Point. Because of a seldom-used election law, Davis will appear on the general election ballot twice. Davis will run as a uncontested Democrat in the District 1 Guilford County Board of Commissioners race while appearing as an unaffiliated candidate in the 28th State Senate contest. Davis gained enough petition signatures earlier this year to secure the Senate ballot spot.


son filed for the seat. Dorsett has held the seat since winning the 2002 election and defeated Davis in the Democratic primary two years ago. Alston said he’s endorsing Davis “because he’s proven himself.” Davis has shown in his years as a commissioner a devotion to public service and keen understanding of government, Alston said. “He’s been a leader from the start and dedicated to the community,” Alston said. Robinson said she’s not upset about Alston’s endorsement of Davis, as she has her own endorsements and supporters. “He (Alston) has the right to endorse whoever he wants,” she said. Davis has received the backing of several prominent High Pointers in his state Senate bid, including High Point University President Nido Qubein and Mayor Becky Smothers. | 888-3528


HIGH POINT – A pair of political forums will take place in October, starting next week, at High Point City Hall. The upcoming forum, at 7 p.m. Oct. 5 will feature candidates for Guilford County sheriff, the 28th State Senate District and the 60th State House District. The final one, at 7 p.m. Oct. 12, will feature candidates for High Point mayor and the two at-large High Point City Council seats. Both forums will be held in the council chambers downtown. The High Point Republican Party is sponsoring

the forums. Though the events are organized by the local GOP, High Point Republican Party Chairman Don Webb said candidates of all political affiliations are encouraged to participate and voters of all political backgrounds are welcome to attend. Webb said each candidate will make an opening statement, then questions will be asked by the moderator. People attending the forums will have the opportunity to submit written questions. Voters will go to the polls Nov. 2, though early voting for this fall’s general election begins Oct. 14.

Interim chief of SBI crime lab backs away from job RALEIGH (AP) – The man appointed to temporarily oversee North Carolina’s embattled crime lab is no longer going to take the job, leaving the agency without a leader as it tries to rebuild its reputation. Gerald Arnold, a former chief judge of the state Appeals Court, said Wednesday he realized after offer-

ing to help that he wouldn’t be able to handle a job with such a large time commitment. A spokeswoman for the attorney general said officials were frustrated by the development. “I went home and thought about it and realized I really just didn’t have the time,” Arnold said.

NC governor declares emergency ahead of heavy rain WILMINGTON (AP) – North Carolina’s governor proclaimed a state of emergency Wednesday as coastal residents braced for drenching rains and possible flooding from a low pressure system interacting with the remnants of a tropical storm. Gov. Beverly Perdue issued the precautionary declaration as Tropical Storm Nicole approached Wednesday afternoon. But Nicole dissipated over the straits of Florida and its remaining rainbands were expected to remain mainly offshore while tracking northward overnight. “It’s kind of amazing we’re getting this kind of rainfall without

few streets right now, but we’ve got pretty heavy rain coming,” he said. The county opened a shelter and emergency operations center in Wilmington in anticipation of flooding and possible power outages caused by winds expected to reach 25 mph. Farther down the coast, in South Carolina, the effects of the weather system were expected to be far milder, with one to three inches of rain and only a chance of minor flooding. “The worst stuff is definitely going to be in coastal North Carolina,” said Jonathan Lamb, a meteorologist in the weather service’s Charleston, S.C. office.

Chinqua Penn Plantation involved in bankruptcy fight


Secretary of Defense Robert Gates speaks at Duke University Wednesday.

Gates says too few in US bear the burdens of war DURHAM (AP) – Defense Secretary Robert Gates said Wednesday that most Americans have grown too detached from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and see military service as “something for other people to do.� In a speech Wednesday at Duke University, Gates said this disconnect has imposed a heavy burden on a small segment of society and wildly driven up the costs of maintaining an all-volunteer force. Because fewer Americans see military service as their duty, troops today face repeated combat tours and long separations from family. The 2.4 million people serving in the armed forces today represent less than 1 percent of the country’s total population.

To attract and retain recruits, the Defense Department finds itself spending more money, including handsome bonuses and education benefits. The money spent on personnel and benefits has nearly doubled since the 2001 invasion of Afghanistan, from $90 billion to $170 billion. “That is our sacred obligation,� Gates told the audience of compensating troops. “But given the enormous fiscal pressures facing the country,� the nation must devise “an equitable and sustainable system of military pay and benefits that reflects the realities of this century.� Gates, who plans to retire next year, has been using academicstyle speeches to outline what he

believes to be the nation’s toughest challenges that lie ahead when it comes to defense. Earlier this year, Gates asked whether troops were training for the right kinds of missions and called into question the utility of D-Day style amphibious landings handled historically by the Marine Corps. He has also embarked on a cost-cutting initiative to prepare for what he says are leaner days ahead for the department. As is the case in most of these speeches, Gates on Wednesday tried to raise awareness about a long-term problem rather than solve it. He offered no plan for what he described as a growing divide between Americans in uniform and those who aren’t.

RALEIGH (AP) – An opulent estate popular with tourists was turned over to a trustee after a bankruptcy court examiner accused a tobacco executive of buying the Chinqua Penn Plantation with company money. The 31,000-square-foot mansion, its grounds in Reidsville, and collection of art and artifacts are part of the assets involved in a bankruptcy battle involving Calvin Phelps and three companies he owns or controls. U.S. marshals took control of the 1920s plantation and other properties Tuesday and placed them with the trustee in the bankruptcy case, Bill Stafford, the marshal for the Middle District of North Carolina, said Wednesday. He declined to describe the other properties, noting case

documents were ordered sealed by a bankruptcy judge. The marshals taking control of the plantation was first reported by The Winston-Salem Journal. The estate was owned by North Carolina for nearly half a century before selling it to Phelps in 2006. A bankruptcy examiner for three Phelpscontroled companies in Chapter 11 reorganization said Phelps took cash for the estate’s $4.1 million purchase out of one of the companies. Phelps “put his own self-interests above the interests of debtors, squandered and wasted corporate assets and otherwise breached his fiduciary duties of loyalty� to the three companies, bankruptcy examiner Gene Tarr said in a court filing last week.

Palestinians dig in ahead of talks with envoy RAMALLAH, West Bank – The Palestinians dug in ahead of a crucial meeting today with Washington’s Mideast envoy, saying they can’t be expected to continue peace talks unless Israel reverses a decision to lift restrictions on West Bank settlement construction. Neither side seems to want the month-old talks to collapse, but Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas are publicly at an impasse, with a Monday deadline looming.

Two powerful quakes hit eastern Indonesia JAKARTA, Indonesia – Two powerful earthquakes hit waters off eastern Indonesia early today, prompting officials to briefly trigger a tsunami warning. The U.S. Geological Survey said a 7.2 magnitude quake off Papua province, centered just 7 miles beneath the ocean floor, struck less than a minute after a 6.6 temblor in the same location. The town of Tual on nearby Maluku island was shaken, said Fauzi, chief of the Indonesian meteorological and geophysics agency, but there were no immediate reports of injuries or damage.

Europe terror plot prompted drone strikes LONDON (AP) – Security officials said Wednesday a terror plot to wage Mumbaistyle shooting sprees or other attacks in Britain, France and Germany is still active and that recent CIA strikes in Pakistan were aimed at al-Qaida operatives suspected in the threat. The plot was still in its early stages and not considered serious enough to raise the terror threat level, officials said. Still, the Eiffel Tower in Paris was briefly evacuated Tuesday and French

police were on alert. A heavy police presence was seen Wednesday around Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square and Big Ben. Victoria Station was briefly evacuated after an unusual smell was reported. “This plot was in its embryonic stages,” a British official told The Associated Press. Some details about the plot came from Ahmed Siddiqui, a German citizen of Afghan background who was captured in Afghanistan in July, a U.S. official said.

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) – A NATO air strike killed a senior alQaida commander in eastern Afghanistan, officials said Wednesday, while Pakistan is investigating reports that a separate CIA drone-launched missile killed the insurgents’ No. 3 commander in its territory. NATO said the air strike killed several militants, including Abdallah Umar alQurayshi, a senior al-Qaida commander of Saudi origin who coordinated attacks by Arab fighters in Kunar and Nuristan provinces near the Pakistani border. NATO said an air weapons team went in after the strike and confirmed that the targeted structure was destroyed.

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico – Seven U.S. Postal Service workers have been indicted on charges they sent thousands of pounds of marijuana through the mail to Puerto Rico while shipping cocaine and heroin to the U.S. mainland, federal authorities said Wednesday.

Police fired shots in the air to disperse protesters at a general strike in Spain. Greek bus and trolley drivers walked off the job, joined by doctors who staged a 24-hour strike at state hospitals. Unions claimed a crowd of 100,000 marched on European Union headquarters in Brussels.

Search resumes for 11 in Mexico mudslide OAXACA, Mexico – Rescue efforts resumed Wednesday for 11 people missing after a hillside collapsed on a town in Mexico’s rain-soaked southern state of Oaxaca. The government delivered supplies to survivors and other who fled their unstable homes for fear of more mudslides in Santa Maria de Tlahuitoltepec. Many sheltered under makeshift tents on the hills. The landslide early Tuesday caused nationwide alarm after local authorities initially said hundreds could be dead in the remote town, which had been blocked off by slides and a washed-out bridge.

The mission of the YMCA is “putting Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind, and body for all.” That’s one of the things that Kaylie and Colby’s mom liked best when she chose an afterschool program for her eight year-old twins. Colby says he loves playing games at the Y with his friends, while Kaylie says she loves simply hanging out and talking with hers. Both kids have attended the Y programs during the school year and summer on scholarships for over a year now, and neither can imagine being any place else. Neither can their mom, who values the high quality child care that allows her to work and support her family. Thanks to your support, the United Way of Greater High Point is able to fund great programs for kids at 3 branches: the Hartley Drive and Carl Chavis YMCAs in High Point, and the Grubb YMCA in Archdale-Trinity. On behalf of Kaylie and Colby, and hundred of other kids, we extend our gratitude!

Whitman fired her. In all, the woman worked for the Whitman family for nine years, making $23 an hour. Whitman also denied Diazâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s claim that she received a 2003 letter from the Social Security Administration that said the Social Security number provided by the housekeeper did not match the name on file. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We never received that letter or that notification,â&#x20AC;? Whitman said after a campaign event in San Jose, Calif.

LOS ANGELES (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; California gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman employed an illegal immigrant Mexican housekeeper for years even though the federal government alerted her in 2003 to the maidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dubious legal status, the worker and her attorney claimed Wednesday. The Republican Whitman â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who on the campaign trail has called for tougher sanctions against employers who hire illegal workers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; said the allegations amounted to a baseless stunt. She said she was not aware the housekeeper, Nicky Diaz Santillan, was in the U.S. illegally until the woman volunteered the information in 2009, after which

TINA DUPUY: GOP strategy may plan right into Obama’s hands. TOMORROW

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


Republicans already had ruined our economy I believe everyone needs to vote this November. If you believe this economic calamity was caused by the people who took those home loans and lacked the patriotic spirit to keep up the payments, then vote Republican. If you believe the health insurance companies didn’t get a fair shake, then vote Republican. If you believe the wealthiest 5 percent, which control 80 percent of the money in this country, should pay less taxes than yourself, then vote Republican. If you believe Muslims haven’t the right to property in America, then vote Republican. They need your vote; they want easily manipulated people in their party. I believe if your income is the result of work you do with your hands, then vote for the Democrat. If you believe big busi-



ness owns your senator, then vote Democrat. If you believe the middle class is paying the taxes that the wealthy have not paid for 10 years, then vote for the Democrat. If you believe this economic calamity was the direct result of 14 years of a Republican-controlled Congress that methodically removed laws that were in place to stop Wall Street gamblers, then vote for the Democrat. I believe our Republican senator is telling us the “North Carolina way” is to put the screws to the middle class, the working stiff. He says it with a smile, accepting the largest campaign contributions on record from insurance and pharmaceutical companies. He has sided with

special interest groups over helping out the working folk. How can these sorry politicians say the Democrats are ruining the economy when the Republicans already did it? If you work with your hands for a living, you have no business voting for a Republican. Get the word out. Vote! JAMES BRIGHAM High Point

Due process should be used to access prescription records Sheriffs everywhere already have access to prescription records. It is called due process. If they have a reasonable

expectation of illegal prescription activity they simply write an affidavit and present it to a judge who will determine if the request is reasonable and who will or will not issue a warrant for access to those records. This process has been around forever and has worked quite well under our legal system. BOB HUDSON High Point

Despite data, recession is still here


Michael B. Starn Publisher




Founded in 1883

Vince Wheeler Opinion Page Editor


t was more than a year after the recession began when the National Bureau of Economic Research informed us that it actually had begun in December 2007. And, even though unemployment figures through August in the greater High Point area remain high – 11.4 percent in Davidson County; 11.1 percent in High Point; 10.5 percent in Guilford County; 9.8 percent statewide; 9.6 percent in Randolph County and 9.4 percent in Forsyth County– the same bureaucrats want us to believe that the recession nationwide “officially” ended more than 15 months ago in June 2009. Yes, local jobless rates have dipped as much as six-tenths of a percentage point across the region in July and August, most likely because of a net gain of 9,100 jobs in the inner Triad area, but other anecdotal and economic news indicate that we’re still not very far along the road to recovery. There is a lot of job-creation ground to make up. During the 21⁄2 years of “official” recession, North Carolina lost more than 250,000 jobs. Continuing actions at companies across the region to cut operating expenses – the current consolidation of the High Point and Reidsville Harley-Davidson franchises into the Greensboro location, for example – in attempts to improve cash flow in tough times indicate that, locally, we’re still feeling the pinch of hard times. Keep in mind, too, that many people who were counted among the jobless earlier in the year, when reported unemployment rates were considerably higher, no longer are being counted in unemployment rates because they, as John Hood put it so well in his column Tuesday, “are dropping out of the labor force. They’re discouraged, not re-employed.” Meanwhile, The Associated Press reported Tuesday that we’re being hit in the heart as well as the wallet as “marriages hit an all-time low, pleas for food stamps a record high and the gap between rich and poor grows to its widest ever as the downturn’s painful effects rip into the fabric of society.” Thankfully, the news isn’t all bad. The same edition of the Enterprise that provided you with the still-too-high local unemployment rates also told you that four vacant commercial buildings in High Point were filled within one week. New Jersey-based Baltek Inc. is relocating its divisional headquarters to High Point (about 68 jobs), two Greensboro companies (GBF Inc. and Advanced Technology Sales & Service) are moving to High Point and Keller Crescent, where 25 jobs have been added in the last year, will expand its operations in High Point. Perhaps the economic momentum that now seems gradually to be picking up speed, will continue during autumn and, by the end of the year, recovery may be much farther along in the greater High Point area and we can enter the second decade of the 21st century with continued good news.

To understand racial profiling, read ‘Black Dragon’


t’s a funny thing about words: sometimes, they convey meaning but not necessarily understanding. Take the term “racial profiling.” Author Joseph Collum of Plantation, Fla., says the Oxford English Dictionary credits him with coining it in 1989 when he was an investigative TV reporter in New Jersey. We all get its meaning: law-enforcement personnel targeting citizens by their skin color. But to truly “understand” what racial profiling is, it helps to hear a story like that of Chris Stubbs. She was a 27-year-old black woman, driving home to North Carolina from New York where she had gone to pick up $10,000 from a friend’s brother; the brother, who owned a car dealership, had agreed to stake Stubbs’ dream of opening a restaurant. Stubbs was pulled over by a New Jersey state trooper who claimed her front wheel was wobbling. She told him she had a spare. He asked to search her vehicle. The trooper did his search and found the brown paper bag full of cash. “You know you’re going to jail for this,” he told her. “For what?” she asked. “For having all this money,” he said. Stubbs’ car was driven to a state police barracks. The door panels were removed, the carpet was lifted, every crevice was searched. Stubbs was frisked, fingerprinted, photographed, interrogated, locked up. And then, released. They’d found no drugs, charged her with no crime. They had not so much as written her a ticket. But troopers still kept the cash. If Stubbs wanted it back, they told her, she’d have to hire a lawyer and prove it wasn’t drug money. If that story infuriates you, well, there’s more where that came from. Indeed, one reads Collum’s new book, “The Black Dragon: Racial Profiling Exposed” in a state of perpetual anger, amazement and fascination. The book (yours truly provided a blurb that appears on the back cover) reads like a particularly addictive novel and you have to keep reminding yourself that what you’re reading actually happened, that it is not the invention of some writer’s imagination, that New Jersey troopers were really this out of control, this unlawful, this will-

ing to shred the U.S. Constitution. “It was right there for everybody to see on the side of the highway,” says Collum. “That’s how we got on to it. I was the reporter for the investigative unit and one of OPINION our assignment people used to come in everyday and say, Leonard ‘Hey, I saw it again. Troopers Pitts had a car over on the side, all ■■■ of the luggage out on the road, people sittin’ on the guardrail. And guess what? They were black.’ ” Finally, Collum pulled arrest records for a single small town – Leonia. What he found stunned him. “Because, I think, 90 percent of the arrests the previous year by the state police on the Turnpike through Leonia were black or Hispanic. I said, ‘Could this be true all up and down the Turnpike?’ ” It was. Jersey troopers were not interested in catching speeders or drunk drivers. They were out to make drug busts. In the War on Drugs, that was the key to career advancement and Trooper of the Year awards. And the way you made those busts, the veteran cops taught the young ones, was to “think dark,” i.e, find reasons to stop drivers with brown skin. Eventually, that advice would embarrass New Jersey before the nation. Collum’s TV news report led to a series of humiliating revelations, hearings and a Justice Department consent decree. “The Black Dragon” is a riveting account of that ordeal. It is also yet another piece of evidence damning the War on Drugs as a war on people of color and their civil liberties. We say we are a nation of liberty and justice for all. But, again, it’s a funny thing about words – even those words. Yes, we all get the meaning. But Collum’s book suggests some of us are still a little fuzzy on the understanding.

This election is about removing â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;ruling classâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; BY TONY MOSCHETTI


Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s try some positive thinking along with stimulus spending BY GARY PARKER



elieving in the stimulus is not easy. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s counter-intuitive for one thing. When youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re up to your eyeballs in debt, spending more by borrowing, that is, deficit financing, just doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to make sense. And of course, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the political season, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll hear a lot of negative stories about it over the next few weeks. But the awful truth is, if we hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t spent that $800 billion on all these things, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be in a much worse recession, or a second Great Depression like the 1930s. It took 10 years to get out of that, so maybe taking four or five years to get out of this Great Recession isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t unreasonable. But trying to argue that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be even worse off without the stimulus is hard to do, even though thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what most nonpartisan economists believe. With unemployment still high, how do you prove that it would be higher still without the stimulus? And as long as consumers believe that the economy isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t getting better and are afraid to spend money, and companies have no confidence that they will spend, new jobs wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be created. The negative thinking becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy when what we need is positive thinking. The stimulus has saved jobs, made progress in fighting our oil addiction by funding hybrids and electric cars, is transforming health care, education and transportation in this country and is building a competitive 21st century economy. The stimulus has cut taxes slightly for 95 percent of working Americans, bailed out state and local governments looking at laying off teachers, police officers and firefighters and put record amounts of unemployment benefits and other aid to many struggling families into the economy. It has funded 100,000 projects to upgrade roads, subways, schools, airports and military bases and begun the transformation to more green energy production. Critics have argued that even if it did these things, it created debt that we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford. The truth is we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford not to create


this debt in order to save a reeling economy in 2008. The Bush bailouts of the banks and the Obama stimulus, together, saved this countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy from going into a worse tailspin, no, from going over the cliff. When the economy has fully recovered, and it will, we can start paying off that debt instead of leaving it for our children. As long as there is a will to sacrifice some of our own income for the sake of tomorrowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s generations. Not all of us by any means, but many of us have lived a life of conspicuous consumption, buying more house than we need, more cars than we need, more of everything than we need. You know it, and I know it. Just because we thought we could afford it and wanted it, doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean it was wise to do so. What weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll need from here on out, is more wisdom. Back to the stimulus. To an extent, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s common sense. If people canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t or wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t spend, the government has to spend. Someone has to buy things and build things so that companies add products and create jobs to add those products. To the economist, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s demand and supply economics stimulated by the Keynesian economics of deficit spending. In any case, despite the political hyperbole, it has been a good thing.

would like to thank Barack â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hamasâ&#x20AC;? Obama, Harry â&#x20AC;&#x153;This War Is Lostâ&#x20AC;? Reid and Nancy â&#x20AC;&#x153;Constitution, Are You Serious?â&#x20AC;? Pelosi for awakening the American people. Twenty months ago, it appeared that we would be suffering the disastrous consequences of tyrannical statism for a generation or longer. Then what appeared to be an unmitigated disaster, the election as president of a committed statist community organizer, has turned out to be the catalyst for our return to the country our founders envisioned. Middle-class, patriotic, libertyloving Americans seemingly outnumbered by the statists have been awakened to discover that we actually far outnumber them. The statists want to â&#x20AC;&#x153;fundamentally transform our country,â&#x20AC;? curtail our liberties and make us into their failed collectivist Utopias. We are ridding Washington not only of destructive Democrat â&#x20AC;&#x153;ruling class,â&#x20AC;? but also likeminded Republicans. We have discovered that the Republican â&#x20AC;&#x153;ruling classâ&#x20AC;? is every bit as destructive. They also donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care about the country or their constituents any more than the other guys. They want to win, not to rid us of the tyranny of Obamacare or reduce the size of government, but because they want the power that comes with control over our lives! This is simply a beginning. One election will not rid us of all of the vermin infecting Washington. Some Democrats have voluntarily left, having seen the handwriting on the wall. The rapidly expanding Tea Party movement is targeting many more, and many Republicrats. Politics as usual is the target! Why do I trust the Tea Party-



backed candidates? Because they know that if they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t keep their promises of smaller, responsive, fiscally responsible government, we will also get rid of them, as with Castle, Murkowski, Bennett and Crist thus far. When, prior to now, could a Christine Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Donnell with her somewhat checkered past, but a past not much different from many other Americans who have struggled, have reached the point where she defeated a former governor and nine-term congressman, and may defeat Harry Reidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;pet,â&#x20AC;? and a once, self-described Marxist, to win a Senate seat? Her primary against Castle brought more than 60,000 voters, an astounding number for Delaware primary elections. Her win would, again, prove that anyone can be a senator. See Obama, Franken, Burris! So donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mock Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Donnell! And since their only function is to say yea, nay, or like Obama, present, most of their time is consumed with soliciting bribes from lobbyists. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to end the Washington entitlement mentality. Many believe they have a â&#x20AC;&#x153;rightâ&#x20AC;? to these seats. Crist after losing, rather than congratulating his opponent, acted like a petulant child to run as an independent. Why? Because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about him, not country or party. Murkowski is running as a write-in with zero chance. Why? She thinks because her corrupt father was a governor, she has a â&#x20AC;&#x153;rightâ&#x20AC;? to the Senate seat. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why so many despise these people, and want them gone! TONY MOSCHETTI lives in High Point.


ATLANTA (AP) – One of the young men accusing megachurch Bishop Eddie Long of coercing him into a sexual relationship told a TV interviewer that he loved the pastor and considered him a father figure, but still called him a “predator” and a “monster.” “I loved him and I’m always going to have love for the things he taught us, but how he left us hurt worse than anything I ever felt in my life,” Jamal Parris told Atlanta’s Fox TV affiliate WAGA in an interview broadcast Tuesday. “This man turned his back on us when he had no more need for us. That’s not a father, that’s a predator.” Parris, 23, is one of four men suing the TV preacher in state court, claiming that he abused

his “spiritual authority” and gave them cars, clothes, cash and Long trips to lure them into sexual relationships while they were teen members of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in suburban Atlanta. Parris described an ongoing emotional struggle. “I cannot get the sound of his voice out of my head and I cannot forget the smell of his cologne and I cannot forget the way he made me cry many nights when I drove in his cars on the way home,” Parris said. “I’m not able to take enough showers to wipe the smell of him off my body.”

1 dead, 1 dozen hurt in bus crash BETHESDA, Md. (AP) – A commuter bus plunged off a highway Wednesday outside the nation’s capital, killing one person and injuring at least a dozen, including children, authorities said. Parents and children were aboard the bus that fell 45 feet off a skyramp of the Capital Beltway and landed below along Interstate 270

in Bethesda, said Maryland State Police Sgt. Michael Brennan. The crash occurred about 4 p.m. as the afternoon rush hour started to build, creating a massive traffic jam northwest of Washington. Television footage showed crews in yellow jackets and helmets walking up ladders and crawling into the holedout windows of the bus.

Woman convicted in 2008 attack CHICAGO (AP) – A Cook County jury has convicted a woman in an acid attack that severely disfigured the victim. Jurors deliberated for an hour Wednesday before finding Maria Olvera-Garcia guilty of three counts of heinous battery in the July 2008 attack on Esperanza Medina, which left burns over 25 percent of her body. Prosecutors say Olvera-Garcia and a co-defendant, Ofelia Garcia, were angry about a man Medina was dating and allegedly drove three teens to Medina’s Chicago neighborhood to carry out the attack. Prosecutors and defense attorneys were preparing Wednesday to give closing arguments in Garcia’s case. Separate juries were seated because each woman blames the other. The teens have pleaded guilty to battery charges. Olvera-Garcia faces up to 45 years in prison.

Acid hoaxer appears in court


Bethany Storro,who falsely claimed a stranger threw acid in her face, walks out of court in Vancouver, Wash., Wednesday.

VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) – Her face red and blotchy, the woman who splashed acid in her face in what was a bizarre hoax made a brief court appearance Wednesday and was ordered by a judge to live in a mental health facility while she awaits trial. Bethany Storro, 28, has confessed that she made up the story about the facial burns she suffered Aug. 30, saying she put drain cleaner on her face trying to kill herself or alter her appearance, according to police. She pleaded not guilty Wednesday to three theft counts. The case drew national attention to the recently divorced woman who works for a grocery chain, and brought in nearly $28,000 in donations to help with medical bills. The donations are now at the center of Storro’s criminal trial, which is scheduled for Dec. 20. Court records show Storro spent about $1,500 of the donations on such things as dinners for her parents, clothes for herself and a bill for an August laser facial peel.

Chili Cook-off Fifth annual event benefits nonprofits BY DARRICK IGNASIAK ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

THOMASVILLE – More than a dozen teams are expected to compete in this weekend’s fifth annual First Presbyterian Church Chili Cook-off, putting their recipes together for bragging rights and a good cause. “We hope to break the record,” said the Rev. Mike Lamm, pastor of First Presbyterian Church. “Every year we have raised more money than the year before, so we are hoping to break the record again because all of the proceeds, every last dime, goes to the four food pantries in town.” The chili cook-off will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday in the First Presbyterian Church parking lot at 21 Randolph St. Proceeds will benefit His Laboring Few Ministries, Cooperative Community Ministry, St. Stephens Baptist Church and Fairgrove Family Resource Center. Last year’s event raised


What: Fifth annual First Presbyterian Chili Cook-off When: 11 a.m-2 p.m. Saturday Where: First Presbyterian Church, 21 Randolph St. Admission: $5 for adults and $2 for children; bowls of chili cost extra. $4,000, allowing the church to write a check for $1,000 to each agency. This year is expected to produce a record number of teams, Lamm said. Lamm said the inaugural cook-off had cold weather and lots of rain, but the church decided to continue the event. Since the first cook-off, the church has been blessed with good weather, Lamm said. “Attendance has increased every year,” he said. “When you think about the low admission and the low cost of chili, to raise $4,000 means we had a big crowd. It has became pretty popular. More people know about it every year, and it just grows ev-

ery year.” Lamm said St. Stephens Baptist Church, Hospice of Davidson County, the Thomasville Civitan Club and Thomasville Rotary Club are among teams that will be competing Saturday. The cook-off’s defending champions, Double D’s, will not compete this year, according to Lamm. State Rep. Jerry Dockham, R-Davidson, Thomasville Mayor Joe Bennett and a representative from Thomasville Medical Center will serve as judges. Thomasville Medical Center’s Heartburn Treatment Center is the sponsor. | 888-3657

Main St. to space at the High Point Parks & Recreation Department’s administrative offices at 136 Northpoint Ave. The Arts Council chose to move rather than to cut funding to its affiliates, one of which is Community Theatre, said board Chairwoman Pam Anderson. The Arts Council will fund its five affiliates $78,400 for 2010-11, the same amount as last year. The Arts Council will not pay rent or utilities at the city facilities. It budgeted $7,132 per month for rent and utilities at Enterprise Center, where it has occupied approximately 10,000 square feet of space since 2007. Community Theatre did not pay rent or utilities but had space under the Arts Council’s rental agreement. The move is considered temporary, but Arts Council leaders don’t have a time frame or specific plans. “We are going to take a breath and see what we can do and what kind of support we can get,” Anderson said. The Arts Council originally planned to buy Enterprise Center and make it a community arts center, and those plans are off, Anderson said. The Arts Council will continue efforts to raise money to either purchase an existing site or construct a building for an arts center. For four years the city has included $58,500 a year for rent in the amount it gives the Arts Council, which this year was $117,063. “The city has been subsidizing rent for the Arts Council, and to some degree this will be a savings (for the city) because they will be in a rather limited space, and it will be temporary,” said Mayor Becky Smothers. “I don’t think anybody perceives this will be a long term arrangement. ...” “I don’t think (the $58,500) would be in next year’s budget. We had an understanding clearly that we were subsidizing rent because they couldn’t make it.” As for establishing a precedent to provide space for other nonprofits in financial difficulty, Smothers said, “I think you have to deal with situations as they occur.”

HIGH POINT – Ferndale Middle School has received IB World School authorization from the International Baccalaureate Organization. The school joins Northwood Elementary, which received its status in August. Hairston Middle School in Greensboro entered the program with Ferndale. In the Middle Years Programme at Ferndale, every student is involved in the IB curriculum, which is based on holistic learning, communication and intercultural awareness.

“The MYP sees the student as the center of the curriculum,” said Frank Beck, IB coordinator at Ferndale. “The eight subject groups allow each student to build a wellrounded educational foundation so they really understand the impact each subject has on their individual education as well as how it can affect their community.” The addition of the IB program helped create a stronger school community, Beck said. “Having an IB curriculum gives teachers a common focus, and many parents and students really value a school that honors

At the Parks & Recreation facility, the Arts Council and Community Theatre will have two offices and a portion of the lobby, which will be partitioned, according to Allen Oliver, director of Parks & Recreation and Arts Council treasurer. Arts Council classes and programs will be held in another part of the building. Community Theatre leaders are looking for rehearsal space for productions. “Bram Stoker’s Dracula,” scheduled for Oct. 22-24 and 28-30, still will be performed on the third floor of Enterprise Center.


Program: Students are challenged to be problem solvers and lifelong learners. Schools: The Guilford County Schools district has eight IB World Schools. Grimsley High, High Point Central High, Page High and Smith High also are IB World Schools teaching the Diploma Programme, which is recognized by the world’s leading universities. Falkener Elementary also teaches the Primary Years Programme.

their subjects are taught through five areas of interaction, which include human ingenuity, health and social education, environments, approaches to learning, and community and service.


The eight subject groups include English, a foreign language, humanities, sciences, mathematics, arts, physical education and technology. The equal focus on these subjects has helped Hairston students and staff become more reflective, according to Chris Butler, the school’s IB coordinator. Butler also is familiar with Ferndale Middle, where he was a curriculum facilitator for the last six years. Northwood became just the second Primary Years Programme World School in the district. Northwood students can continue the IB curriculum at Ferndale Middle.

John Henry Hammond HIGH POINT â&#x20AC;&#x201C; John Henry Hammond lived life to the fullest. There is no question about that.

He migrated to New York City with his family at the age of 5 and was the eldest of his 3 sisters Gloria, Lela and Louise.

He lived his life the way he wanted to with no apologies and walked the streets as if he had drummers behind him. He leaves behind two daughters, Shawn Stewart and LaJan Hammond, nine grandchildren, Jonil, Nathaniel, Nashon and Juwan Stewart and Anthony, Desmond, Niaeame, Brianna and Ashyia Hammond, numerous cousins in New York as well as his nephew and once wife, now good friend Peggy Hammond of High Point.

Parents seek charges against baby sitter MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

JACKSONVILLE â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The parents of a toddler who drowned earlier this week in a rainfilled roadside ditch want the childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s baby sitter arrested. Nineteen-month-old Sadie Lavina Gates drowned when she wandered out of mobile home at 3390 Burgaw Highway and fell into a drainage ditch. She was swept away by storm water, carried underneath N.C. 53 and found floating face down on the opposite side of the highway, authorities said. The girlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parents, Sean and Heather Gates, told reporters they want to see justice for their daughter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel the closest thing to hatred Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever felt,â&#x20AC;? Sean Gates said, adding that he knew judgment was up to God. The Gates met with Onslow County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s detectives Wednesday. Sheriff Ed Brown said he understood their pain. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d expect any good parents to feel that way,â&#x20AC;? he said, adding that the investigation hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t revealed which way the case will go. Brown said his detectives continue to investigate the events surrounding the toddlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drowning and have conferred with prosecutors. Attempts to reach the babysitter were unsuccessful. The Gates said the day Sadie died was only her fourth time she had been kept by the babysitter.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Bonnie and Clydeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; director Penn dies NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bonnie and Clydeâ&#x20AC;? wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a movie that director Arthur Penn wanted to make, but when he finally agreed to, he made sure that the violence provoked by the lawbreaking couple from the 1930s â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and that led to the protagonistsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; bullet-riddled demise â&#x20AC;&#x201C; wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t disguised. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought that if were going to show this, we should SHOW it,â&#x20AC;? Penn recalled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We should show what it looks like when somebody gets shot.â&#x20AC;? His cinematic art, he noted, only reflected the times: TV coverage of Vietnam â&#x20AC;&#x153;was every bit, perhaps even more, bloody than what we were showing on film.â&#x20AC;? The director died Tuesday night, a day

after his 88th birthday, leaving behind films â&#x20AC;&#x201C; most notably â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bonnie and Clydeâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Little Big Manâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that refashioned movie and American history, made and broke myths, and sealed a generationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s affinity for outsiders. Daughter Molly Penn said her father died at his home in Manhattan of congestive heart failure. A memorial service will be held by yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s end, longtime friend and business manager Evan Bell said Wednesday. Penn â&#x20AC;&#x201C; younger brother of the photographer Irving Penn â&#x20AC;&#x201C; first made his name on Broadway as director of the Tony Award-winning plays â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Miracle Workerâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;All the Way Home,â&#x20AC;? then rose as a film director in the 1960s.

Jury in police-killing case begins deliberations



CHARLOTTE â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The jury in the murder trial of Demeatrius Montgomery, accused in the shooting deaths of Charlotte-Mecklenburg police Officers Jeff Shelton and Sean Clark, began deliberations Wednesday In closing arguments, Assistant District Attorney Marsha Goodenow portrayed Montgomery as a man who hated police. She said Clark and Shelton had no reason to think Montgomery was a threat on the night of March 31, 2007. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They had no reason to know that a man with that kind of hatred was sitting on the porch waiting for them,â&#x20AC;? she said. Goodenow also told jurors that Montgomery had not been framed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do you really think the Charlotte police department wants the real killer to walk the streets free?â&#x20AC;? she asked jurors.

After medal winners made initial appearances in Columbia on Monday, the Charleston events began Wednesday as participants rode in open buses along Charleston’s Battery to attend an opening reception. Other events during the four-day convention include a symposium at The Citadel with Citadel cadets, watching the cadets parade and Saturday’s concluding Patriot’s Awards Dinner. Guests at the dinner will include Air Force Chief of Staff Norton Schwartz, former South Carolina


ear Abby: My 3-year-old goddaughter, “Tammy,” is one of the most important people in my life. So are her parents, “Sophie” and “Zack.” I was friendly with them separately before they got together. As a couple, they selected me to be godmother. They have since split up. Zack is understanding about my staying neutral and continuing to be friendly with him and his ex. But Sophie gets mad and won’t talk to me for weeks if she hears I went to see Tammy on a weekend she’s with her daddy. Even though I am closer to Sophie, Zack is a great father and a good friend. I don’t think it’s fair that Sophie expects me to take her side. I feel their issues are theirs alone, and my main focus is that my goddaughter have my support regardless of which parent she happens to be with. Am I doing something wrong? If not, how do I handle Sophie? – Honored in Omaha Dear Honored: You are doing nothing wrong. However, viewed from Sophie’s perspective, it may appear that you have “chosen” her ex over her. A way to handle this would be to tell Sophie that you are not visiting Tammy when she’s with Zack because you prefer his company over Sophie’s. It’s that you want your

And further, if this continues, Sophie will drive a caring friend (you) away. Dear Abby: In this age of electronic devices, how appropriate is it to take photos at the table in a restaurant? I suppose it depends on the establishment – probably not a problem in a casual buffet environment. My boyfriend and I like to go to fancy restaurants (on our own and with friends), and we enjoy taking pictures of each other, our friends and the food. How do we handle this? Do other patrons care how many times we “flash” our cameras? – Snap-happy in Bloomington, Ind. Dear Snap-happy: When making reservations at an expensive restaurant, ask whether it would be disruptive to take pictures.

uestion: I have an odd, squash-like vegetable growing in my compost pile? I have been letting it grow just to see what was produced. Is it edible? Answer: Yes, it is edible, but what it tastes like might be anyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guess. Chances are it is a hybrid squash plant that sprouted from seed produced when two different types of squash plants cross-pollinated each other. I have seen this happen a lot when folks grow yellow squash and zucchini or patty pan squash in the same garden and throw their over ripe fruit into the compost pile. We also have this happen when pumpkins are composted. Pumpkins are a winter squash, and they can cross with any of the various summer or other winter squash. You will see all sorts of various colors and sizes, not to mention flavors. While squashes and pumpkins can cross pollinate, they can not cross with watermelons, cantaloupe or cucumber. MASTER GARDENERS will answer questions on horticultural topics. Karen C. Neill, an urban horticulture extension agent, can be contacted at the N.C.

Family has complicated mix of illnesses


ear Dr. Donohue: We have four children, three boys and one girl. In 1981, our youngest son lost his kidneys to glomerulonephritis and was on dialysis for two years. Finally, he had to have a kidney transplant, and his oldest brother was the best candidate for donating a kidney. Four years ago, this oldest son was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease of the blood called antiphospholipid antibody syndrome. It makes his blood thick and forms clots. He is on a high dose of blood thinner. He has lost part of his right foot because of a clot. Our second-oldest son has autoimmune liver disease, and his daughter has lupus. Our biggest concern is for the oldest son. His blood is so thin now that he doesn’t heal well. His immune system has to be fixed. As parents, we wonder if we gave our children all this autoimmune illness. Any information you give would be appreciated. – M.D.




Your family has suffered from a complicated assortment of serious illnesses. You wonder if genes are involved. A genetic influence can be found in all the illnesses you mention, but that’s not saying you and your husband are responsible for these illnesses. Genetic influence is only part of your children’s story. How much it con-













tributes to their illnesses can’t be determined at present. You are no more reHEALTH sponsible than your Dr. Paul parents, Donohue their ■■■ parents and their parents’ parents. Antiphospholipid antibody syndrome comes from proteins (antibodies) made by the immune system. These antibodies prevent phospholipids from carrying out their function in preventing the formation of unwanted blood clots. Treatment consists in putting an affected individual on Coumadin. This medicine is called a blood thinner. It doesn’t “thin” the blood; it keeps it from clotting. It doesn’t interfere with the blood’s healing properties. If Coumadin doesn’t stop clots from appearing, aspirin can be added to the program. And, if necessary, other medicines can be put into play. What causes the syndrome is still a guess. Autoimmune liver disease and lupus also are due to an immune system that is misfiring. I can’t tell you if all of these illnesses are interrelated. I can tell you that you and your husband are not to blame for them. Dear Dr. Donohue:

I have an ear problem. When I get up every morning, both ears are red and swollen and they hurt terribly. Sometimes they get that way during the day. My pharmacist told me that his son has the same problem. He said the doctor didn’t have an answer for it. Neither does my doctor. I hope you can help. – F.W. It could be relapsing polychondritis (POL-eecon-DRITE-iss), recurrent inflammation of the ear cartilage. The ear is mostly cartilage, except for the earlobe. If your earlobe doesn’t turn red during an attack, that’s evidence in favor of this diagnosis. You need a second opinion. Other cartilage can become involved – the nose, eyes, joints and breathing tubes. Prednisone, one of the cortisone drugs, usually controls the illness. Aspirin, indomethacin, dapsone and methotrexate also are used. Dear Dr. Donohue: Will you please tell me what a legume is? I see it in many articles on nutrition. Legumes are always promoted as healthy foods. I must be missing out on something. – R.S. I’m sure you have eaten many legumes. Legumes are vegetables and other plants whose seeds are contained in pods, like peas and beans. Peanuts are also legumes.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – The Grand Ole Opry has ended its itinerant ways and returned home. A host of country music’s legends joined some of today’s biggest names on stage Tuesday night to kick off the “Country Comes Home” celebration. They began with a stirring rendition of “Will The Circle Be Unbroken?” as the curtain rose at the Opry house for the first time since the May flood damaged the building. The nation’s longest running live radio program never missed a beat,

moving around town to venues such as the Ryman Auditorium and War Memorial Auditorium, as laborers worked feverishly for 51⁄2 months to repair the Opry house, the show’s home since 1974. “I think the flood goes completely unnoticed if this building’s not underwater,” Brad Paisley said before the show. “I think everybody in the country goes, ‘Yeah, there’s another flood,’ if this doesn’t happen. ... It’s completely metaphorical in it’s destruction as it is in it’s rebirth.”

Students perform so others can share magic of the harp BY VICKI KNOPFLER ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER


IGH POINT – The harp, especially the Celtic harp, plays a prominent role in many legends for its allure and ability to wring emotions from the fairest of damsels to the fiercest of warriors. Damsels and warriors are difficult to come by these days, but a group of high school students at Penn-Griffin School for the Arts is nonetheless enchanted by the harp. The students – eight or nine, depending on the day – will give a Celtic harp concert Tuesday night to raise money to purchase more harps so additional students can learn to play the ancient instrument. They’ll be joined by their teacher, Mike Connors, director of guitar and harp at the school. While teaching guitar students, Connors frequently pulled out his own harp to provide accompaniment. He also

brought in guest harpists from Scotland and Ireland. Eventually students were hooked and asked to form a harp club that now meets before school each weekday. Students in the club use six lap harps that belong to the school, and Connors brings his three from home. Other students would like to join the extra-curricular club, but they can only do so when more harps become available. Connors would like six more of the small lap harps, which cost $400-$500 each, and one large floor harp, which is $2,000-$3,000. “Our goal is to have the training and availability of harps, so if professional musician is the choice students make, they can be prepared to study at a university or conservatory,” Connors said. At least one student in the club already has her own harp, and others are saving to purchase their own, Connors said. Most of the club members are

Ileana Le, a senior guitar major, said she’s almost sad to be a senior because she’ll miss playing with the club. She is doing her senior project on the history and tradition of the Celtic harp,

and she the hopes to get her own instrument. “The music is so different from anything else you’re going to hear in school because we’re doing Celtic music, and it’s different from classical,” Le said. “It’s so much fun to get together and play and hear all these sounds together. It’s so new to all of us.”



What: Fundraising concert by Penn-Griffin Harp Club When: 7 p.m. Tuesday Where: Samuel Burford Auditorium, Penn-Griffin School for the Arts, 825 E. Washington Drive Admission: $5 at the door, all proceeds go to purchase harps

Harp pieces are passed down aurally, rather than written, so students learn by listening to either recordings or Connors, who initially taught himself to play the harp but later took lessons. Penn-Griffin students play both the lively Celtic marches and dance music and the lullabies, which Le describes as calming. “There’s a real camaraderie among students,”’ Connors said. “They play together and help each other out. There’s nothing like eight or nine harps playing together. They love playing as a group because collectively it makes an amazing sound. “What a way to start the day, with that wideopen, beautiful, magical sound. We all come in an hour early, and then the rest of the day is, ‘Yeah, whatever.’ ” / 888-3601

Nick Hornby and Ben Folds collaboration clicks in “Lonely Avenue” (Nonesuch). “Belinda” is a ballad about a has-been singer on the nostalgia circuit who each night performs his one hit, a love song written about a woman he later lost and now misses, which makes reprising his golden oldie for singa-long crowds a bizarre form of public torture. Such is the richness of a threeverse plot when a novelist turns lyricist. Hornby (“High Fidelity,” ‘’About a Boy”) wrote the words for the 11 songs on “Lonely Avenue,” and Folds set them to music. The collaboration clicks: There’s a depth to the lyrics rare in pop songs, and they inspire top-notch work from the ever-inventive Folds. Hornby finds fresh ways to approach his topics, such as on “Belinda,” which is both funny and sad. He writes about divorce from the perspective of the couple’s 9-yearold daughter on “Claire’s Ninth,” and shows sympathy for Bristol Palin’s ex in “Levi Johnston’s Blues.” Hornby’s lyrics are smart, profane, violent, poignant, hilarious and absolutely true. Folds pairs them with a wide range of sounds and plenty of catchy melodies. On “From Above” he sings about serendipity to a finger-snapping dance beat, while “Levi Johnston’s Blues” is built on clattering percussion and superb arranger Paul Buckmaster’s grinding strings. As for “Belinda,” the coda rocks like the Ben Folds Five. – Steven Wine, Associated Press Writer







ONE CHANCE East blew his one chance to affect the result. Since West’s double suggested at least three cards in spades, East had nothing to lose – and much to gain – by overtaking the queen of spades with his king at Trick One. East then shifts to a club up to weakness. West takes the ace and jack, exits safely and scores a diamond trick later.

If you give up for a second, that’s where you’ll finish. A defender can’t put his brain in powersaving mode just because he holds a weak hand. Today’s West led the queen of spades against South’s four hearts, and South played low from dummy. East, who had despaired of winning the rubber when he picked up his hand, signaled listlessly with the eight. South won the next spade, drew trumps, and led the ace and then a low diamond. West took his king and counted 10 tricks for declarer: seven trumps, a spade and two diamonds. So West cashed his ace of clubs, hoping East had the king, but South claimed the rest. Making four.


DAILY QUESTION You hold: S Q J 9 H 8 4 D K J 10 7 C A Q J 3. You open one diamond, and your partner bids one spade. What do you say? ANSWER: Some players would bid 1NT; to them, a raise to two spades would guarantee four-card support. To me, the raise feels more descriptive. Nor would I consider bidding two clubs since that sequence would suggest longer diamonds than clubs. In fact, I would have opened one club to avoid missing a possible trump fit in clubs. South dealer N-S 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.

Quayle captures spirit of 9-2





After posting consecutive 9-2 records the past two weeks, I feel like I’m lost in the early ‘90s. But considering 1992 gave up such TV classics as “Major Dad” and “Northern Exposure,” plus motion picture magic with “Aladdin,” “Lethal Weapon III” and Wayne’s World,” 9-2 can be a good thing. 1992 saw CDs surpass cassette tapes as the prePICKING ferred music meTHE dium, while Jay WINNERS Leno replaced Johnny Carson San Quentin as host of “The Quayle Tonight Show.” ■■■ The national debt was a mere five trillion. And Billy Ray Cyrus released “Achy Breaky Heart.” Wow. So, in honor of the year that was, here are this week’s 1992inspired prep football picks.

LEXINGTON AT T.W. ANDREWS Not even “Coach” Hayden Fox could save the Yellow Jackets. ... Andrews 21, Lexington 14.

SOUTHWEST GUILFORD AT NORTHWEST GUILFORD “Unforgiven” was a great western that swept the major awards in 1992. That won’t do much for the 2010 Cowboys. ... Northwest Guilford 28, Southwest Guilford 19.

LEDFORD AT C. DAVIDSON My “Basic Instinct” tells me to go with the Spartans, who will be in “A League Of Their Own” on Friday night. ... Central Davidson 27, Ledford 14.

SOUTHERN GUILFORD AT RANDLEMAN “Unsolved Mysteries” drew big television ratings in 1992. The outcome of this one won’t be a mystery. ... Southern Guilford 29, Randleman 18.

NORTH RALEIGH CHRISTIAN AT BISHOP MCGUINNESS One of 1992’s best movies, “Batman Returns,” featured some great villains. Friday’s action will showcase some pretty good Villains, too. ... Bishop McGuinness 28, North Raleigh Christian 14.

GLENN AT PARKLAND “Saved By The Bell” was a big hit in 1992. That won’t prevent the Mustangs from enjoying “Home Improvement.” ... Parkland 28, Glenn 21.

Trojans carry torch with ‘Game Ball Run’ BY STEVE HANF SPECIAL TO THE ENTERPRISE

HIGH POINT – The Olympic Torch Relay provides a spark of interest prior to the Games’ arrival every four years. Members of the Wesleyan Christian Academy cross country team are looking to fan the flames of interest for the school’s Homecoming this Friday by embarking on a “Game Ball Run.” The Trojans plan on starting at the site of their opponent – Calvary Baptist – and running a relay with the game ball to the WCA soccer field in time for Friday’s 7 p.m. start. “I wanted to do it last year, but we were playing Fayetteville Christian,” coach Brian Roberts said with a laugh. “That’s a little bit too long of a run for our guys.” Calvary, meanwhile, is just 28 miles away when taking the back roads from Winston-Salem to High Point. The idea came about when a Wesleyan administrator recalled a “game ball run” for his football

team’s matchup with a crosstown rival. Roberts took the idea and, well, ran with it. “We were thinking of an idea where we could show a little school spirit and support for the varsity soccer team – that’s really our football team at our school,” Roberts said. “And it’s a way for our guys to be involved with all the festivities this week. They were pretty excited about it. They thought it would be a fun challenge.” Eight Wesleyan runners will participate in the bulk of the relay. Roberts said the race actually should start with about seven miles Thursday so his athletes will be able to attend Friday’s Homecoming pep rally before hitting the road. The final 21 miles will wind through Davidson County as the Trojans avoid Interstate 40 and Highway 311. One of Wesleyan’s small buses will be part of the escort force along with a few parent volunteers. Roberts said he hopes the High Point Police Department will be able to lend a hand for the final leg from Lexington Avenue

to Westchester and Eastchester drives to the field entrance off Centennial. The goal is to have all the team members running with the ball for the final mile or so and for the soccer ball to arrive right after the national anthem. Senior captain David Leonard will bring the ball onto the field, Roberts said. Others running a leg should include Drew Thompson, Brian Gottwalt, Zach Hostetler, Bradley Davis, John Rishel, Sean Flanigan and Ben Hostetler, who will be taking the place of the injured Chris Kabrich. For his part, Wesleyan soccer coach Scott Reitnour loves the idea. “I think it breeds unity and really encourages togetherness in the student body when you have one athletic team willing to get behind and support another athletic team,” Reitnour said. “I think activities like these are awesome. That sort of unity and solidarity within the Wesleyan body presents some kind of light.” | 888-3556

UNC: NCAA to hear its appeal of two suspensions on Friday CHAPEL HILL (AP) – North Carolina officials say the NCAA has scheduled a Friday afternoon teleconference to hear the school’s appeal of the suspensions of two players. Team spokesman Kevin Best said Wednesday the school is “hopeful”

that it will learn Friday whether the suspensions of cornerback Kendric Burney and safety Deunta Williams will be upheld. The hearing comes the day before the Tar Heels (1-2) face East Carolina. Burney was suspended for six games and Williams received

a four-game suspension from the NCAA for receiving improper benefits tied to several trips. If the suspensions are not reduced, Williams’ earliest return wouldn’t come until next week against Clemson while Burney’s would come Oct. 23 against Miami.




enoir-Rhyne carries a 3-1 record into Saturday’s South Atlantic Conference opener at Newberry. A pair of local products have helped the Bears to their solid start. Junior running back Jasper Thomas, who starred at T.W. Andrews, has rushed for 58 yards and a touchdown on six carries in a reserve role. Sophomore linebacker Chris Carter, who excelled at Ragsdale High, has been credited

with 13 tackles and two fumble recoveries. He also has 1.5 sacks, one interception and one pass broken up. A little further west, two area standout wide receivers have been popular targets in Appalachian State’s passing attack en route to a 4-0 start. Senior Matt Cline, who starred at East Davidson and Glenn High, leads the Mountaineers with 17 catches for 176 yards and two touchdowns.

Cline ranks as DeAndre Presley’s go-to guy in the ASU air game. Freshman Tony Washington, a T.W. Andrews alum, sports three catches for 66 yards and a touchdown. Appalachian State enjoys an open date this week before Elon comes to Boone for Homecoming on Oct. 9. Expect plenty of offensive fireworks in that one.



Richard Childress Racing has lost its appeal before a NASCAR committee to have Clint Bowyer’s 150point penalty reversed. Childress emerged from NASCAR’s research and development center Wednesday evening after a nearly 5-hour hearing and said his appeal was denied. He says his next appeal will be to NASCAR’s chief appellate officer. Bowyer and his RCR team were penalized last week when the car Bowyer drove to victory at New Hampshire failed inspection.

Panthersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Smith downplays issue with Clausen CHARLOTTE (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith tried to diffuse any potential controversy with rookie quarterback Jimmy Clausen on Wednesday. Smith, a four-time Pro Bowl player, said his sideline comments to Clausen in Carolinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 20-7 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday have been overblown by the media. Television cameras caught Smith walking over to Clausen and screaming at the rookie. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all good,â&#x20AC;? Smith said Wednesday.

DODGERS 7, ROCKIES 6 DENVER â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Matt Kemp hit a grand slam and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Colorado Rockies 7-6 Wednesday to complete a three-game sweep. A day after eliminating the Rockies from postseason contention, Los Angeles sent them to their fourth straight loss. Colorado went 1-5 on its final homestand, part of a stretch in

which it lost nine of 10 overall. The Rockies finished 52-29 at Coors Field this season, but faded in the races for the NL West and wild card.

Cedeno led off the sixth with a single to center field.


NEW YORK â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Prince Fielder hit a tiebreaking single with two outs in the eighth inning and the Milwaukee Brewers rallied after squandering a six-run lead in the first game of a doubleheader.

ARLINGTON, Texas â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Mitch Moreland raced home from first base with the winning run after a wild pitch and a throwing error on a strikeout with two outs in the ninth inning, lifting AL West champion Texas to a 6-5 victory over last-place Seattle on Wednesday.



ST. LOUIS â&#x20AC;&#x201C; P.J. Walters pitched seven innings of threehit ball and Allen Craig hit a solo homer. After allowing an infield single to Andrew McCutchen to start the game, Walters (2-0) set down the next 14 batters before Ronny

ANAHEIM, Calif. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Torii Hunterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two-out single drove home Jeff Mathis in the 11th inning and Los Angeles swept Oakland. Los Angeles failed to score with the bases loaded and one out in both the ninth and 10th innings.



VOLLEYBALL LEDFORD DEF. NORTH FORSYTH WINSTON-SALEM â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Ledford cruised past North Forsyth for a 25-18, 25-17, 25-12 Mid-Piedmont 3A Conference victory on Wednesday.

Sarah Katherine Kirkpatrick added six service points, three kills and two aces, while Haylee Leonard had four kills and four blocks.

U.S., Europe donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lack for Ryder Cup motivation NEWPORT, Wales (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Preparations for the Ryder Cup were intense and inspirational. There was laughter and a few tears. One thing players from both sides agreed on was the importance of rallying behind the flag. And that was before anyone hit a shot Wednesday. A rain-filled day at Celtic Manor shifted the attention to the team rooms. U.S. captain Corey

Lowe (16-12) gave up one run and seven hits in 52â &#x201E;3 innings and struck out nine. He is 5-0 with a 1.17 ERA this month with 29 strikeouts and three walks in 302â &#x201E;3 innings, and his 16 wins matched Tim Hudson for the team high. Conrad, a 30-year-old rookie, homered in the third off Andrew Miller (1-5).

Pavin gathered his troops for a motivational speech by Maj. Dan Rooney, a decorated F-16 fighter pilot from Oklahoma with the rare distinction of being an Iraqi war veteran and a PGA professional. The voice in the European team room came over the telephone, and it was chilling â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Seve Ballesteros, stricken with a brain tumor, gave the team a stirring pep talk.

Treasury starts sale of Citi shares WASHINGTON (AP) — The government said Wednesday it is starting to sell $2.2 billion in trust preferred shares that it holds in Citigroup, another move to recoup the costs incurred in the $700 billion financial bailout. The Treasury Department said the pace of the sales would be determined by market conditions. The $2.2 billion in trust preferred shares were received by the government as part of Treasury’s agreement in January 2009 to share potential losses on a pool of $301 billion of assets held by Citigroup. The loss-sharing arrangement also involved the Federal Deposit Insurance Co. and the Federal



WTO: Chinese poultry ban illegal GENEVA (AP) — The World Trade Organization has ruled that a U.S. ban on Chinese poultry is illegal, giving Beijing a win in the first international commerce ruling against the administration of President Barack Obama. The WTO decision said the U.S. was violating a number of its trade obligations by preventing Chinese chicken parts from entering the U.S. market.

News startup Ongo gets financing CUPERTINO, Calif. (AP) — Ongo Inc., a Silicon Valley startup planning to launch a website for reading and sharing news from multiple sources, has received an initial round of funding from some of the country’s top newspaper publishers. The company said Wednesday that The New York Times Co., Washington Post Co. and Gannett Co., which publishes USA Today and other newspapers, have collectively invested $12 million.

Reserve. Citigroup paid the Treasury and the FDIC a premium in the form of securities for their willingness to share potential losses over a five to 10-year period. The loss-sharing arrangement was terminated in December 2009 at the request of Citigroup. Treasury was never required to make any payments under the arrangement and has no further obligation to do so. The sale of the trust preferred shares will be handled by a syndicate of Wall Street investment firms including BofA Merrill Lynch, J.P. Morgan, Morgan Stanley, UBS Investment Bank and Wells Fargo Securities. These firms will solicit bids for

the securities and will sell off the securities based on the bids received. The sale of the Citigroup trust preferred securities is being handled separately from the sale of $25 billion in Citigroup common stock that the government owns. Citigroup received $45 billion in taxpayer support in one of the largest bank rescues by the government in addition to the insurance provided against losses on the pool of $301 billion in assets. Of the $45 billion, $24 billion was converted to a government ownership stake which the government has been selling off last spring. The bank repaid the other $20 billion in December 2009.

China promises currency flexibility BEIJING (AP) — China repeated promises of exchange rate flexibility Wednesday but offered no new measures that might avert a possible vote by the U.S. House of Representatives on currency legislation. The statement in a central bank report on a quarterly economic meeting reflected currency policy and gave no details of possible changes. It made no mention of demands by some American lawmakers for Beijing to ease currency controls or face possible trade penalties. Beijing promised a more flexible exchange rate in June when it broke a link between its yuan and the dollar. But the yuan has risen by only about 2 percent since then, fueling demands by American lawmakers for action. China will continue reforms to “enhance ex-

change rate flexibility against the backdrop of a recovering global economy,” said the report by the People’s Bank of China. The central bank will “further improve the yuan’s exchange rate regime based on market supply and demand with reference to a basket of currencies,” the report said. It gave no details of possible changes. Democratic Party leaders say the House will take up a bill this week that would give the U.S. government power to impose sanctions on China or other countries found to be manipulating their currencies to gain trade advantages. Supporters say the bill would protect U.S. jobs against unfair trade competition at a time of high unemployment. American lawmakers face rising pressure to create jobs ahead of November elections.

Oil climbs after supplies decline

AmeriCredit shareholders approve GM acquisition

NEW YORK (AP) — Oil prices rose Wednesday after the government reported inventories fell last week. There is still plenty of oil on hand, as supplies remained well above the five-year average. Benchmark crude for November delivery gained $1.20 at $77.38 a barrel in midday trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — AmeriCredit Corp. shareholders have approved the company’s $3.5 billion sale to General Motors Co., the auto financing company said Wednesday. The deal is expected to close on Friday. Votes were reported at a shareholder meeting Wednesday at AmeriCredit headquarters in Fort Worth, Texas. Detroit-based GM


agreed to acquire Americredit in June to help it lend to customers with weaker credit. The acquisition is important for GM because expanding its lending operations to reach more customers was seen as a critical step ahead of the automaker’s initial public offering. Shares of AmeriCredit rose 7 cents to $24.48 in morning trading Wednesday.

Stocks slip on European worries NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks slipped Wednesday as protests against austerity measures in Europe brought new worries about the region’s financial system. The dollar fell further against other currencies as traders anticipate more action by the Federal Reserve to push U.S. interest rates down. Gold continued to climb past $1,300. European markets fell as demonstrators gathered in Brussels, where the European Union is based, and in several of the bloc’s member countries to protest austerity measures aimed at preventing another crisis like the one that required a bailout of Greece earlier this year. The protests raised concerns that countries like Spain will not be able to implement policies required to heal their bloated public finances. Kate Warne, investment strategist at Edward Jones in St. Louis, said the protests in Europe suggest those countries will have trouble implementing austerity measures and that that’s spooked markets there. “Governments will have more difficulty making cuts to get their budgets in order,” she said. The Dow Jones industrial average lost 22.86, or 0.2 percent, to close at 10,835.28.

‘Nicole’ sparks deadly floods, threatens Florida


A Southwest Airlines ticket agent greets a passenger near the airline’s check-in line at Los Angeles International Airport in April 2007.

Airline deal changes travel for many DALLAS, Texas (AP) – Southwest Airlines agreed to buy AirTran this week for $1.4 billion. When the combination is complete, fliers – especially those used to AirTran – will notice plenty of changes, from the way they book to the way they board. Here’s a look at four ways air travel may change when Southwest and AirTran get together, which could take until 2012: • Fares: The “Southwest effect” is so well-documented that even the government cites it now: When Southwest enters a new market, fares fall, often steeply. Travelers in Atlanta, at least, should see lower fares to places where Southwest flies but AirTran does not, such as Cleveland, Louisville and Little Rock. But the impact on fares in other places is less clear. For one thing, Southwest is taking over in markets already served

by another discount carrier. For another, less competition generally makes for higher prices. • Smaller markets: Southwest gains access to 37 new airports – the kind of markets that it had never considered or deemed too small too bother with. Places like Dayton, Ohio; Bloomington, Ill.; and Allentown, Pa. Southwest CEO Gary Kelly said in an interview that the airline assumes “we’ll keep all of them,” although he noted that when Southwest bought a low-fare carrier called Morris Air in 1993, it dropped some smaller destinations. Mike Boyd, an aviation consultant who was hired by Southwest’s pilots this year to study the effect of different Southwest merger scenarios, said the airline will drop very few AirTran locations no matter their size. • Passengers: They’ll be able to earn and redeem frequent-flier

points for trips to Southwest’s new destinations. Southwest officials say the customer experience at the airport and on the plane won’t change much. There will be no assigned seats, no change in the boarding process – passengers line up and grab any available seat – and no business or first-class cabins. • Changes for AirTran customers: They get access to many new destinations because AirTran serves only about half of Southwest’s 69 cities. For AirTran passengers, the deal opens up some of the West, including Salt Lake City, Albuquerque, N.M.; and Portland, Ore. They can choose among four airports in the Los Angeles area and three around San Francisco instead of one apiece. Their biggest break may be on fees. Southwest officials say they plan to drop AirTran’s charges for checked bags.

KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) – Tropical Storm Nicole caused extensive flooding and mudslides Wednesday in Jamaica, killing at least two people, even as the drenching system moved north and dissipated over the Florida straits. The outer bands of the storm hammered Jamaica, toppling bridges and knocking out power to thousands. Many streets were filled with gushing brown torrents of water, prompting Prime Minister Bruce Golding to urge people to stay indoors. The storm, which had sustained winds of 40 mph (65 kph) earlier in the day, broke

apart over the Atlantic, though the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami warned that there were still large areas of heavy rain. Jamaican Information Minister Daryl Vaz said two people were confirmed dead but warned that the toll could be higher from the flash floods and mudslides. Emergency shelters were opened for thousands of Jamaicans who live in ramshackle homes along gullies. Major hospitals were treating only emergency cases. Officials said about 30 percent of the power utility’s customers were without power.

Record number of children die in hot cars in 2010 THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

This year of record temperatures has also led to a record number of children dying in hot vehicles, according to a group that tracks such deaths. According to the Kansas-based organization Kids and Cars, 48 children have died of hyperthermia after being left or becoming trapped in a hot car or truck. The previous record of 47 was set in 2005, says Janette Fennell, the group’s founder and president. “I’m devastated,” Fennell said Wednesday.

The latest death was a 2½-month-old girl who died Sept. 20 in Kingman, Ariz., after being left five hours in a car in 100-degree heat. Police say the girl’s father forgot the baby was in the car, went inside the house and took a shower and nap. Fennell waited until the results of an autopsy on two Kentucky brothers before declaring this a record year. The two boys, ages 4 and 6, died Aug. 6 after apparently climbing into their family’s pickup truck, but the cause of death was not released until this week.
