Triad will benefit from research grants BY PAUL B. JOHNSON ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

TRIAD – Researchers at universities in the region will receive $23.1 million in federal funding as part of a national stimulus initiative to promote medical research that was announced by the White House Wednesday. President Barack Obama announced the $5 billion in grant awards under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The White House says that the more than 12,000 grants are expected to create tens of thousands of jobs

during the next two years and are part of an overall $100 billion in stimulus funding for science and technology. The medical research money through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act will be distributed to the 50 states. The vast majority of research money for the Triad will go toward Wake Forest University Health Sciences, which received 70 grants totaling $21.7 million. The Wake Forest grants will fund projects ranging from research on diabetes and immune response to infections to combatting coronary

heart disease and drug addiction. Wake Forest ranked third in the state for the grants announced Wednesday behind Duke University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, according to information from the White House. The University of North Carolina at Greensboro received four grants totaling $304,000, while North Carolina A&T State University received three grants for $764,000. WinstonSalem State University received a grant for $309,000. Nationally, more than $1 billion of the grant funding is dedicated to research applying the technol-

ogy produced by the Human Genome Project. The new funding will allow researchers to study the genomic changes linked to cancer, heart, lung, and blood disease and autism, potentially leading to new treatments and cures, the White House reports. The genome funding includes $175 million for the Cancer Genome Atlas to collect more than 20,000 tissue samples from more than 20 cancers and determine all of the genetic changes in thousands of the tumor samples.

FESTIVAL OF BANDS Groups to march at Ledford on Saturday

FLU SHOTS: Davidson County sets several clinics. 1B


DAVIDSON COUNTY – Nineteen high school marching bands from across the state will perform Saturday in the 25th annual Ledford High School Festival of Marching Bands. “It’s one of our biggest fundraisers of the year,” said Mike Howell, Ledford High band director. “It brings a lot of positive attention to our school and to our band program. We have schools coming from Raleigh. We have one school coming from way up near Asheville and down in the Charlotte area. It gets our name out there.” Each high school marching band will perform its halftime show for a panel of judges. Performances will be judged on marching and maneuvering, music, general effect percussion, color guard and drum majors. “People can expect to see some very exciting performances,” said Bob Callicutt, Ledford High festival coordinator. “The smaller bands are going to be wonderful to look at. Many of them will have colorful props. As you get into the larger bands, you get a lot of power. You will be sitting in those stands

Classes are determined by the number of members in each band. While Ledford High’s marching band will not be competing in the event, the school will take the field twice for an exhibition performance of its show called “The Dark Side of the Rainbow” featuring music from the 1939 MGM Classic “The Wizard

of Oz” and the 1973 album “Dark Side of the Moon” by Pink Floyd. “I’m pretty excited,” said Tyler Rathbone, a member of the Ledford High marching band. “It’s the first time we really get to showcase our stuff. It’s really cool to see all the other bands and see what we are about to go up against in the coming year. It’s pretty fun just to show our stuff off and not have to worry about if the judge is going to nail us for something.” In addition to Ledford High, schools that will perform include Southwest

HIGH POINT – A High Point nonprofit facing difficult economic times hopes to raise community awareness about its work by opening its doors to the public this weekend. I Am Now is planning an open house aimed at giving people an idea of how the organization tries to develop the potential of young men and women who are transitioning out of the foster care system. “We want to make people more familiar with what I Am Now is, and they can actually come take a look at things hands on,” said I


I Am Now will host an open house from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday at 509 Ferndale Blvd. More information about the organization is available on its Web site,

Am Now founder Travis Burrell. The event will be held at the organization’s “Crossroads” house for young people who grew up in foster care but lack resources and support networks once they turn 18 and age out of foster care. In addition to transitional housing,

the organization provides mentors and life-skills training geared towards self-sufficiency. Burrell said there will be information at the open house about all of its programs. The timing of the event is important because I Am Now has had difficulty finding the money to meet its monthly operating budget of $13,500 to $14,000. It receives some funding from Guilford County, but its representatives have been seeking other sources, such as grants and foundations. The organization tries to fill a niche by providing services unavailable elsewhere. According to figures on its Web site, there


are 180 homeless people between the ages of 18 and 23 in Guilford County. Burrell said there continues to be strong demand for I Am Now’s services. “We’ve been real busy lately with our non-resident program and mentoring program,” he said. “We’ve been getting a lot of calls from different agencies seeking mentors for young people and also somebody to do case management for folks who are not necessarily homeless but may have aged out of foster care and just need to be directed to resources.” | 888-3531

Price tag for Guilford County Randolph Hospital limits visitors jail far less than expected ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT


GREENSBORO – Guilford County is saving nearly $10 million from the first estimated cost of the county’s new jail, commissioners learned in a meeting Wednesday. Balfour Beatty Construction, the jail’s primary contractor, told commissioners the cost to build the jail would cost no more than $84.9 million. The original cost was expected to be $94.5 million. Of that, $23.2 million will go to local contractors, an effort that commissioners applauded and pushed throughout the project. Local workers can also begin to learn about getting work from the project through a job fair that will be held 9 a.m. to noon Oct. 10 at Hairston Middle School. And except for some very specific details that are needed in jail

construction, most of the money for the project will stay nearby. “A majority of it is (subcontractors) in North Carolina,” according to John Duke, superintendent for the Guilford County project. The proposed not-to-exceed price will go to the full Board of Commissioners tomorrow for a formal vote. If approved, construction will begin in early November, Duke said. Guilford County voters approved a $115 million bond referendum for the jail in 2008 to replace the county’s current, overcrowded facility. “It’s no secret that I was against this project from the beginning,” said Board of Commissioners Chairman Melvin “Skip” Alston after hearing the presentation from the contractor. Alston originally opposed the jail construction, but since the referendum

RANDOLPH COUNTY – Randolph Hospital joined a growing number of North Carolina hospitals Wednesday that are limiting visitors during the onset of flu season. As of Wednesday, Randolph Hospital is restricting all visitors to the facility who are displaying any flu-like symptoms, fever, cough or sore throat, and is strongly discouraging anyone under 18 years of age from visiting the hospital. Additional restrictions in place for the Maternity Services Unit state no visitors under 18 are permitted to visit the unit. “We feel these restrictions are a necessary step to protecting our patients, staff and adult visitors as the reports of increasing cases of flu appear throughout the region,” said Ingrid Munley, Randolph Hospital infection control professional. “Early evidence from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention has shown that children and adolescents are more susceptible to H1N1 flu and have higher rates of flu infection than adults.” Further precautions at Randolph Hospital also entail increased availability of masks, gloves and alcohol-based hand sanitizer at all major entrances into the facility as

was approved, he’s on the side of the voters who approved the project. “I am totally committed to this project,” he said. “And I want to give the criticizes what they want, which is a state-of-the-art prison.” Technically the county facility would be a jail -- which is generally regarded as a holding facility for those awaiting trial. Prisons are for convicts. Complaints of overcrowding at the jail have been going on for years in Guilford County, and part of the $115 million referendum will go to renovating the existing jail in downtown Greensboro. That will cost about $5 million, according to Alston, which is on top of the $84.9 cost for the new jail. So what will happen to all the extra money? “We’ll have to figure that out,” Alston said.

Pregnant 12-year-old, sister found safe in Tennessee MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

STATESVILLE – Two Mooresville sisters who have been missing for a week were found Wednesday morning in central Tennessee and are OK, according to Iredell County authorities. The Iredell County Sheriff’s Office says one of the girls, 12-year-old Keara Hess, had not given birth to her baby. Keara is nearly nine months pregnant, and authorities had feared for her health and that of the baby. The sheriff’s office says Matthew Hess, the adoptive father of Keara and

her 11-year-old sister Sierra, will be charged in the case and returned to Iredell County for legal proceedings. Lt. Julie Gibson of the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office said the father, who was a legal guardian of the sisters, will be charged with misdemeanor child neglect and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. The sisters and Matthew Hess were found in Smith County, Tenn., about 50 miles east of Nashville, during a morning traffic stop, according to officials in Iredell and Smith counties. Matthew Hess was driving the faded green

1993 Ford Explorer that police had been seeking for several days. A woman driving on Interstate 40 in Putnam County, Tennessee, saw the vehicle at about 8:45 a.m., according to the Tennessee Highway Patrol. She recognized the Ford from an Amber Alert, and called state troopers on her cell phone. They pulled over Hess a few minutes after 9 a.m. and arrested him, officials said. Gibson said the two girls have been taken to a hospital in Tennessee for a checkup. Authorities had is-

sued an Amber Alert on Tuesday evening for the two girls. The girls were last seen last Wednesday. Police say Hess left a note with his estranged wife, Jeanette Hess, saying he was taking Sierra to school on Thursday. Jeanette Hess contacted police when Keara failed to show for a doctor’s appointment last week. In issuing the Amber Alert, police listed Tennessee as one of the places where Matthew Hess might have been taking the two girls. Public records indicate Hess had previously lived there, and his wife told police that Hess had friends in the area.

Police say suspect shot, wounded in standoff RALEIGH (AP) – A police spokesman says officers shot and wounded a man after he fired a gun in front of a Raleigh police substation and forced workers to leave an office building. Spokesman Jim

Sughrue (shuh-GREW’) said Wednesday that officers responding to a gunshot outside the substation found a man with a gun. He said the man fled and entered a nearby office building, appar-

ently demanding that the workers inside leave. Sughrue said the man emerged from the office building and pointed a gun at police, who shot him. He said 25-year-old Justin Lamar Thomas was taken to a local hos-

well as signage displaying the newly implemented visitation restrictions. “We understand that these new restrictions may be an inconvenience for patients and families, but we ask for your understanding and patience as we work to limit the spread of flu,” Munley said. “Protecting our patients who have a weakened immune system or at a higher risk for infection, such as pregnant women and newborn infants, is a first step in controlling the spread of flu this season.” According to the hospital, the visitation policy will remain in effect until the rate of flu in the region has significantly decreased. Earlier this week, Thomasville Medical Center, Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center, Forsyth Medical Center and Medical Park Hospital in Winston-Salem announced it would restrict visitors under the age of 18 as a precaution against the spread of influenza, including H1N1, among patients. Under the policy, which goes into effect today, 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.

tal Assistance says state regulators won’t rummage through people’s trash. Some local government sanitation departments say they won’t pick up trash that contains the plastic bottles until they are separated. Portions or all of more than 90 other laws also take effect today. Some are designed to help protect more residents from identity theft and unwanted telephone solicitations.

Thomasville reports wastewater spill DAVIDSON COUNTY – The city of Thomasville had a wastewater spill Wednesday of an estimated 1,000 gallons of untreated wastewater.

According to a city press release, the wastewater came from a damaged gravity line on White Street and spilled into a tributary to Hanks Branch in the Yadkin/ Pee Dee River Basin.

House Bill 1160 requires municipalities, animal operations, industries and others who operate waste handling systems issue news releases when a waste spill of 1,000 gallons or more reaches sur-

face waters. The Division of Water Quality was notified of the event Wednesday and is reviewing the matter. For further information, call the city at 4754220.



Ray Hale outside his home on Tuesday, they found he wasn’t alone. Hale also had an 18-month-old baby on board, also without a helmet. As they wrote him up for reckless endangerment, evading arrest and driving on a suspended

license, officers learned another man at the home was a fugitive from North Carolina. They arrested him as well. But before the officers could leave, they spotted a third man allegedly breaking into a nearby barn. So they arrested him, too.

N.C. elections board sets hearing on Easley campaign


Logan Brooke Prysiaszniuk, 11, crafts one of her designer scarves at the home of her grandmother, Faye Kapp, in Mocksville.

Girl, 11, runs own business making scarves THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WINSTON-SALEM – Every Wednesday night after she and her parents have supper at her grandparents’ house, Logan Prysiaszniuk heads downstairs to her workshop. Logan, 11, works alongside her mother, Kristina Prysiaszniuk, and her grandmother, Faye Kapp, to make colorful scarves from recycled sweaters. The basement workshop is the manufacturing center for Logi B. Designs, the company that Logan started last year with a $2,500 startup loan from her grandmother. Logan has been drawing and designing apparel since she was 5 and big enough to hold her own sketchbook. A lesson in recycling at Pinebrook Elementary prompted her to consider how she could make recycling fashionable, and she was inspired

to start her venture. “We were having a lesson on global warming. I want to be a fashion designer one day, and I just had this idea for scarves,” said Logan, a sixth-grader at North Davie Middle School. She scours thrift stores for old sweaters, and as word of her business has grown, so has the number of donations. She looks for unique patterns, bright colors, sweaters that do not unravel and lightweight sweaters for spring scarves. During their weekly Wednesday-night work sessions, the three of them chat and watch America’s Got Talent. Bins of bright yarn line the workshop walls. Stacks of colorful sweaters wait to be cut into strips. Containers of buttons and costume jewelry are lined in drawers, and

two sewing machines sit atop a work table. Kristina Prysiaszniuk’s job is to cut the sweaters into widths of consistent size for her daughter’s designs. Logan combines textures, patterns, and chooses buttons and costume jewelry to embellish the scarves. “We figured out that each scarf takes about two hours to make,” Kristina Prysiaszniuk said. The average cost is $18 for a child-size scarf and $29 for the adult size. Logan sells her creations in Hip Chics, the boutique her mother owns in Clemmons. Earlier this month, Logan, her mother and grandmother attended a show in Ohio. Logan sold 83 of her scarves there in five hours. At a recent trade show, Logan’s mother and grandmother were wear-

Man returned from Puerto Rico on abuse charges MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

WAYNESVILLE – A 60year-old man accused of sexually abusing three young victims who fled Haywood County after posting bond was located recently in Puerto Rico, transported back to the Haywood County Jail, where he remains without bond. Robert Carl Duke Jr. was arrested initially on May 15, 2008 on allegations of sexual abuse

against three victims who at that time ranged in age from 6 to 14 years old. At that time, he was jailed under $250,000 bond pending more than two dozen felony charges filed against him by Waynesville and Canton police departments. Upon his release from jail, Duke fled the country. Last fall, local authorities received word that he was in police custody in Puerto Rico, however “before our extradition unit could go get him, he

was released,” said Det. Ryan Singleton, Waynesville Police Department. The United States Marshal Service initiated a search, and Duke was soon to be featured on America’s Most Wanted, said Singleton. Meanwhile, marshals located him in Puerto Rico about two weeks ago. The North Carolina Department of Corrections extradition unit picked him up and transported him back to Haywood County Friday.

Logan doesn’t sell her scarves online, but she does take e-mail requests for specific colors. “It’s grown so fast. Scarves are just so hot right now. Even guys are wearing them,” Logan’s mother said. “Not my scarves,” said Logan with a middleschool girl giggle.

RALEIGH (AP) – Former Gov. Mike Easley’s campaign records will be scrutinized in a public hearing to determine whether Easley’s campaign committee violated the law, the State Board of Elections announced Wednesday. Board director Gary Bartlett said the elections board would meet Oct. 26 to examine evidence about The Mike Easley Committee as well as the state Democratic Party. The hearing could last a week, Bartlett said. Board staff has been investigating Easley campaign records since the campaign changed reports after failing to disclose the use of a car. The board also has been examining free airplane flights taken by Easley while governor and whether their value exceeded maximum campaign donation limits. The five-member board — comprised of three Democrats and two Republicans — could reprimand the groups or clear them, issue fines or refer the cases to a district attorney for possible criminal charges against individuals. It wasn’t immediately clear if Easley, a Democrat, would attend the hearing. Ace Smith, a political consultant and Easley spokesman, said

there would be no comment Wednesday from him or Easley. Smith said in July that a hearing wasn’t needed. Easley committee attorney John Wallace released a statement that the campaign “has provided over seventeen years worth of committee records to the board” and “will continue to cooperate with the board in connection with the hearing.” The hearing’s announcement comes more than four months after the elections board sealed the Easley campaign file because potential criminal penalties were involved. “The work of our investigation has brought us to the point where it needed board attention,” Bartlett said. Board chairman Larry Leake, who scheduled the hearing, didn’t return a phone call seeking comment. Public hearings aren’t required following a staff investigation if it finds no wrongdoing or the matter can be settled without significant penalties. The hearing may provide the most details to date about activities surrounding Easley, a twoterm governor who left office in January. Easley previously served as attorney general.

U.S. official out after Afghan vote fraud dispute



Iraq budget shortfall poses security challenge BAGHDAD – Iraq’s budget shortfall due to low oil prices presents a challenge to building up the country’s army and raises questions about whether it will be able to protect itself when U.S. troops leave, a top American commander said Wednesday. Iraq’s security plans have been derailed because of the drop in oil prices, hampering efforts to buy ships, planes and weapons and slowing down the construction of the necessary national supply chain. “The budget, no question, is a challenge,” Army Lt. Gen. Frank Helmick told reporters Wednesday in Baghdad.

UNITED NATIONS (AP) – Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon fired the top American official at the U.N. mission in Afghanistan Wednesday after a widely publicized dispute with his boss over how to deal with widespread fraud charges in the country’s presidential election. U.N. spokeswoman Michele Mon-

tas said in a statement Ban decided to recall Peter Galbraith, ending his appointment as the U.N.’s deputy special representative. Galbraith said he disagreed with the head of the mission, Kai Eide, over how the U.N. should handle the disputed election. The secretary-general reaffirmed “his full support for Eide”

and made his decision “in the best interest of the mission,” Montas said, refusing to elaborate. Galbraith told the Associated Press he was “surprised” by the decision and worried “insufficient attention was given to how this might impact in Afghanistan, or on the reputation of the United Nations.”

EU nations to hammer out financial oversight GOTEBORG, Sweden – European Central Bank president Jean-Claude Trichet warned EU governments Wednesday the public will be unforgiving if authorities don’t provide a stronger financial system. Trichet’s comments came a day before the 27-nation bloc hammers out major new reforms. Finance ministers from each country will hold talks today and Friday about a new financial oversight framework for Europe.

Report says Georgian attack started war BRUSSELS – Georgia and Russia both claimed to find vindication in Wednesday’s independent report on the causes of their 2008 war. The EU-sponsored report supports Russia’s insistence Georgia launched the short war with an indiscriminate rocket and artillery barrage on the separatist capital of South Ossetia. Georgia can find support for its claim Russia taunted and provoked it for years before the assault.

Rescuers comb Curacao for missing diplomat WILLEMSTAD, Curacao – Rescuers searching for a U.S. diplomat led sniffer dogs over beaches Wednesday as technicians prepared to comb the sea floor with a robotic device for traces of a vice consul who vanished on this Dutch Caribbean island last week. Curacao prosecutors said James Hogan, 49, was reported missing Friday morning by his wife. He apparently left his home to go for a walk the night before.

Prison sought for 26 Americans in CIA case MILAN – An Italian prosecutor in the first trial anywhere scrutinizing the CIA’s extraordinary renditions asked a Milan court on Wednesday to sentence 26 Americans to jail terms ranging from 10 to 13 years for the abduction of an Egyptian terror suspect. Prosecutor Armando Spataro, completing his closing arguments, argued a guilty verdict and strong sentence for the defendants, most CIA agents, would help restore confidence in Western democracies eroded by tactics employed in the fight against terrorism.

JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) – A powerful earthquake struck western Indonesia on Wednesday, triggering landslides and trapping thousands under collapsed buildings – including two hospitals, an official said. At least 75 bodies were found, but the toll was expected to be far higher. The temblor started fires, severed roads and cut off power and communications to Padang, a coastal city of 900,000 on Sumatra island. Thousands fled in panic, fearing a tsunami. Buildings swayed hundreds of miles away in neighboring Malaysia and Singapore. In the sprawling lowlying city of Padang, the shaking was so intense that people crouched

Even as they prepared for today’s talks, the U.S. and its allies were contemplating new and tighter sanctions on Teh-

Some Chicago residents hoping Olympics bid a bust


Senate Finance Committee Chairman Sen. Max Baucus (left) talks with ranking member Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, during a Senate Finance Committee hearing on health care overhaul reform legislation on Capitol Hill on Wednesday in Washington.

Health bill survives attacks; vote may be near WASHINGTON (AP) – A White House-backed overhaul of the nation’s health care system weathered repeated challenges from Republican critics over taxes, abortion and more on Wednesday, and the bill’s architect claimed enough votes to push it through the Senate Finance Committee as early as week’s end. “We’re coming to closure,” said Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., the committee chairman, as President Barack Obama lobbied at least one wavering Democrat by phone to swing behind the measure. Baucus said, “It’s clear to me

we’re going to get it passed,” although he sidestepped a question about possible Republican support. Olympia Snowe of Maine is the only GOP senator whose vote is in doubt, and she has yet to tip her hand. While she has voted with Democrats on some key tests – to allow the government to dictate the types of coverage that must be included in insurance policies, for example – she has also sided with fellow Republicans on other contentious issues. In a reflection of the intensity on both sides of the Capitol, Demo-

cratic Rep. Alan Grayson of Florida was unrepentant after claiming the Republican plan for health care was for Americans to “die quickly.” Refusing to apologize, he said, “People like elected officials with guts who say what they mean. ... I stand by what I said.” That controversy aside, House Democratic leaders struggled to reduce their legislation to the $900 billion, 10-year cost that Obama has specified. Officials said numerous alternatives were under review to reduce subsidies that are designed to defray the cost of insurance for millions.

Killer of 9-year-old dies of natural causes TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) – John Evander Couey, a convicted sex offender awaiting execution for kidnapping, raping and burying 9-year-old Jessica Lunsford alive, died of natural causes Wednesday. Couey, 51, had been ill for some time and died at a Jacksonville hospital where he had been since Aug. 12, said Department of Corrections spokeswoman Gretl Plessinger. “It was not a surprise,”

she said, but declined to provide specifics because prison officials had not yet received a report from Couey the hospital. Jessica’s grandmother, Ruth Lunsford, 77, said in a telephone interview that she could not feel bad about Couey’s death. “He murdered my granddaughter. He didn’t show

any mercy to my granddaughter,” she said. “God took control of it. He took him out of this world. ... I’m not crying, honey. If my legs and feet would hold up, I’d go out and shout all over Citrus County.” Citrus County Sheriff Jeffrey Dawsey, who oversaw the investigation, said his first reaction to Couey’s death was one of disappointment. I really wanted the state of Florida to put John Couey to death,” Dawsey said.

Supreme Court taking a new look at gun ban WASHINGTON (AP) – The Supreme Court said Wednesday it will consider a challenge to Chicago’s ban on handguns, opening the way for a ruling that could set off a vigorous new fight over state and local gun controls across the nation. A victory for gun-rights proponents in the Chicago case is considered likely, even by supporters of gun control. If the court rules that the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms doesn’t allow the city’s outright handgun ban, it could

lead to legal challenges to less-restrictive laws that limit who may own guns, whether firearms must be registered and even how they must be stored. The court last year moved in the direction of voiding tough gun control laws when it struck down a prohibition on handguns in the District of Columbia, a city with unique federal status. Now the court will decide whether that ruling should apply to local and state laws as well. The court will hear arguments in the case early next year.

September29th-October 3rd

CHICAGO (AP) – The mayor, the president and Oprah Winfrey may hope to return to Chicago from Copenhagen with the 2016 Olympic Games, but some around town hope the International Olympic Committee deems the Second City the second city. As in second to Rio de Janeiro. Or Tokyo. Or Madrid. The opposition is not as visible as the “We Back the Bid” signs plastered across town. But in a city all too familiar with stories of public corruption and problems with public services, there is serious concern the games can only mean more troubles – and bills – for residents. “I know it’s going to cost us money somehow,” said Joseph Patrick, a 51year-old stay-at-home dad. “The government doesn’t have a job (so) the only place they can get money is from us.” A new Web site – – is the talk of the town and features the game “Match the Olympic host with its estimated budget overrun.” About 170 protesters marched outside City


First lady Michelle Obama is introduced by TV host Oprah Winfrey at a dinner in support Chicago hosting the 2016 Summer Olympics Wednesday.

Meanwhile, Obama’s decision to travel to Copenhagen to boost Chicago’s chances of winning the 2016 Olympics has drawn criticism from some Republicans, who call it a boondoggle for Obama’s hometown allies and evidence the president has blurred his priorities.

WILL DURST: Here’s more focus on how to avoid getting swine flu. TOMORROW

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


Seek a spiritual relationship with God Christians often are criticized because we support causes that the political left just doesn’t understand. Quite frankly, I can’t understand why anyone would support political candidates who have turned their backs on almost everything this country once held dear. Our nation is in deep spiritual trouble if we accept candidates who ignore sinful behavior and even hide their faces when innocent babies are killed. We should live up to God’s standards, not those of the world. I’m just an old sinner saved by grace, but we all need to remind ourselves of what’s truly important. We must do our best to do what is biblically right in all circumstances if we call ourselves God’s children. God created a spiritual need within us that only He can fill. We must seek a spiritual relationship with Him if we ever expect to find



true joy. This requires discipline and a conscious decision to not let anything come between us and God. Many things and much “stuff” easily can compete with placing Him first in our lives. However, life will never be complete and we never will have peace until His Spirit rests in our hearts. Jesus paid the price for everyone’s sin, and I could never repay His sacrifice for me. We should never allow anything to come between us and God. Our desire should be to please God instead of constantly asking Him for handouts while we follow the world. Bringing joy to our Creator by supporting just causes plus being His hands and His feet should be a top priority. God still has a plan for us all and no problem

iven much of the latest local economic news – grand opening of a plant with 200 workers, dips in unemployment rates, brighter reports on the home furnishings front, the more optimistic among us might conclude that the worst is over and we’re on the way to recovery. We hope so but we’re realistic enough to remind you that (1) Malt-O-Meal’s impact on the job market, while most welcome, generally is minimal on the Triad as a whole, (2) many of the declines in local joblessness figures may be due as much to seasonal factors as improvement in the region’s economy, and (3) we’ll have to wait a couple of weeks to determine if the trend Ray Allegrezza of Furniture Today has witnessed at home furnishings markets will continue. Numbers appear to be headed in the correct direction. Unemployment in each of the areas The High Point Enterprise tracks monthly dipped in August: High Point from 12.2 percent to 11.6; Guilford County from 11.7 to 11.4; Davidson County from 13.4 to 13.1; Randolph County from 11.8 to 11.4; Forsyth County from 10 to 9.8. And the fact that jobless rates fell in 90 of North Carolina’s 100 counties also is encouraging. Allegrezza reports that buyers at four home furnishings markets have been upbeat enough “to do something they haven’t done for some time – write orders” and that industry improvement is being driven by two factors: “shrinking inventory levels and the perception that, since Labor day, the business is slowly but steadily improving.” Meanwhile, BusinessWeek says “investing gauges are broken, market signals are mixed and money managers don’t know where to turn” before asking, “What exactly is the ‘new normal’?” One report in the same edition suggests paychecks could shrink in 2010 while another optimistically tells us to “put inflation fears aside, for now.” There’s little doubt that the economy, locally, statewide and nationally, continues to perplex most of us, that the stimulus package – for which about half the money has been spent – isn’t turning things around as quickly as most of us hoped, and that we’re all looking for the next big breakthrough but things are beginning to look up. Now may be the time to take positive action to get things rolling. We’re hoping the High Point Market (Oct. 17-22) can help us do that.

Nutty response from ACORN indicates it doesn’t get it


sn’t it obvious? If you believe you’re the object of a witch hunt, the first thing you do is stop hanging around with witches. You’d think that’d be common sense, but then, the paradox of common sense is, it’s not all that common. So Bill Clinton, though dogged by a perpetual investigation desperate for dirt, decided to go ahead and play slap and tickle with the hired help. And Larry Craig, though the object of rumors about his hidden sex life, didn’t think twice about widening his stance in that men’s room stall. And ACORN, though accused of every act of malfeasance this side of the Manson murders, failed to divest itself of the sort of imbeciles who would give advice – on hidden camera, yet – on how a prostitute and pimp might hide their profits from the IRS. You are surely familiar with the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now. It’s a nonprofit group, founded in 1970, that advocates for a higher minimum wage and more money for urban schools and also offers free tax preparation, voter registration and mortgage counseling for the poor. Or, it is one of the five families of the New York Mafia, a vast criminal enterprise specializing in voter fraud, prostitution, drug dealing, armed robbery, jaywalking, spitting on the sidewalk and taking more than 10 items into the Ten Items or Less line. Which one you believe depends on whether you get your news from Fox or from sane people. This much is inarguable: Because a young lawyer named Barack Obama once represented it in a voter rights lawsuit, ACORN has proven a useful obsession for the president’s political opponents. And ACORN has rewarded that obsession, providing the witch hunters a whole coven of witches. This would include investigations of alleged voter fraud in Las Vegas and Miami, delinquent taxes, the embezzlement of nearly a million dollars by the organization’s former chief financial officer, a decision by the leadership to hide that embezzlement from the rank and file, and growing concern that the

group may have used tax-deductible charitable contributions for partisan purposes, which is legally proscribed. So if it’s not the Manson Family, well, it ain’t the Brady Bunch, either. Now there’s this hidden OPINION camera sting wherein two conservative activists, posing Leonard as pimp and prostitute, visited Pitts a number of ACORN offices ■■■ seeking advice on how to hide their criminal income from the government. The only thing more ludicrous than the premise is the fact that ACORN staffers actually gave the requested advice without flinching, even when the “pimp” suggested his workforce might include “children from El Salvador.” Faced with a loss of government funding, public outrage, and a severing of ties by such partners as the IRS and Bank of America, ACORN has filed suit against the two activists, contending that the videos constitute illegal wiretapping. This, I believe, is called killing the messenger. Meaning that whatever legal merit the lawsuit has or does not have, it could hardly be more wrongheaded as a response to the burgeoning controversy. It suggests that even at this juncture, ACORN simply doesn’t get it. The issue here isn’t a hidden camera sting. Rather, it is ACORN itself. If it is not the cabal of thugs some of its critics contend, it “is” an organization whose sloppiness and unreadiness for prime time become more manifest each passing day. The ascension of its one-time lawyer has propelled ACORN irrevocably into the national spotlight. If it wishes to survive the experience with its mission or its remaining credibility intact, it will accept some friendly advice: Don’t kill the messenger. Kill the witches instead.

We can have health care reform without transforming system




he United States spends more income/capita on health care than any other developed country in the world – yet our life expectancy is not greater; we are not healthier; and our child mortality rate is not lower. It is plainly evident that we need to reform our health care system, but do we need to transform our system? A reform of our health care system would cost very little to our government and taxpayers. There are three items that need reform: tort medical malpractice, denial of health insurance for pre-existing conditions and purchase of health care insurance across state lines. Trial lawyers are one of the most powerful and wealthiest special interests in our country and overwhelmingly favor the Democratic Party. It sickens me to see advertisements on television by law offices seeking more clients for asbestos and other lawsuits. Doctors are forced to purchase expensive malpractice insurance costing as much as $150,000/ year. To further protect themselves, doctors practice “defensive medicine” ordering more tests, drugs, etc., than necessary or even prudent, just to cover themselves against lawsuits. Medical mistakes will happen. Medicine is an art as well as a science. Doctors and health personnel are human and we know that humans make mistakes. When a mistake is made, there should be a reasonable payment for pain and suffering, which should be capped except for egregious circumstances that would be exceedingly rare. Insurance companies are also a very important and powerful special interest. They would prefer to cover only healthy clients and not pay out many claims. Frequently, insurance companies will deny health care insurance to anyone with a pre-existing condition – a previous heart attack or stroke, for example. One health care reform would be to prohibit insurance companies to cherry pick only healthy customers and require them to offer insurance without any discrimination against pre-existing conditions. Insurance companies do not want comparison shopping for health insurance and therefore strongly support laws that restrict insurance

policies that are limited within states. We are a nation and customers should be able to purchase insurance from anywhere in our nation. This is how we purchase home and car insurance – why not health insurance? Competition will result in lower premiums – that is why the health insurance companies are opposed to nationwide policies. Our high cost health care system is characterized by greed and waste. It has been estimated that 20 percent of health care costs are wasteful spending. “Defensive medicine” is a prime reason. Greed is seen in multiple malpractice suits, cheery picking of only healthy clients and state restrictions on health insurance policies. The three reforms noted above would not add one cent to the national debt or bust the national budget. Yet the transformation of our health care system by having a government option to private insurance and providing some type of coverage for the uninsured will cost billions of dollars. If we can lower health costs by reform, more persons may be better able to purchase health insurance. And companies may be able to better offer workers health care coverage. Still, there may be some who are uninsured. Is it really a government responsibility to provide health care to all citizens? Or is this more a matter of personal responsibility and non-profit organization assistance? The answers to these questions may frame what eventually comes out of Washington, D.C. as health care legislation. JAMES COREY is a retired professor of political science at High Point University.

Illegals need care From Milwaukee Journal Sentinel – Sept. 25: t was only a matter of time – after death panels and pulling the plug on Grandma – that immigrants would be hauled out of the grab bag of wedge issues in an attempt to kill health care reform. That’s the problem with debates fueled by emotion and fear. What’s achieved is at cross-purposes with what’s needed. And that’s the case in the matter of illegal immigrants and health care reform. What’s being proposed – banning illegal immigrants from participating in insurance exchanges even if they can pay full freight – will make this nation less healthy. The House and Senate were already of a mind to restrict illegal immigrants from any possible public option or government subsidy to get health insurance. However, South Carolina GOP Rep. Joe Wilson’s recent outburst apparently has hardened White House hearts further. It reportedly will not favor allowing illegal immigrants to buy health insurance even if they can afford it through these exchanges, in which private companies provide insurance following government regulations on such things, for instance, as pre-existing conditions.

One of the items driving up health care costs for everyone is the tendency for those without insurance to defer care until they’re in an emergency room. So, we have a plan that would force the 12 million or so illegal immigrants here to continue using emergency rooms as their primary care. We understand the politics of granting illegal immigrants public or subsidized health care. It’s a deal killer. Though we also understand that a sane world would recognize that they are staying no matter what and that there is a manifest common good in keeping them healthy – that the swine flu virus, for instance, does not check immigration documents. So, puzzling is this notion that the relatively few illegal immigrants who, as a practical matter, are able to afford exchange insurance should be denied it. Let’s remember: There are economic and moral reasons for health care reform.


Small plane crashes in eastern Indiana INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – A small, single-engine plane crashed into a field in Indiana Wednesday after the pilot became unresponsive and the plane started to speed up and slow down at dangerous speeds, officials said. The pilot may have had a health problem or was suffering from a lack of oxygen, officials said. Military officials do not believe the crash was terrorism-related, said Michael Kucharek, a spokesman for U.S. North American Aerospace Defense Command. Instead, he said the pilot may have blacked out due to a condition known as hypoxia. The defense command

said the flight left Grand Rapids, Mich., and lost communication with ground air traffic controllers. The online site listed the flight’s destination as Muncie, Ind. The plane crashed about 12:40 p.m. Wednesday into a field in a rural area of eastern Indiana, about 60 miles northeast of Indianapolis and 185 miles south of Grand Rapids, NORAD said.

Annual event exceeds expectations

Karen Summers was hired as instructor of English in the Department of English at High Point University. Summers is responsible for teaching English composition, among other courses.


HIGH POINT – A crowd of serious buyers attended this year’s 19th annual Parade of Homes, according to the event’s organizers. Scott Beane, president of the High Point Home Builders Association, said he had anticipated a smaller crowd for this year’s parade due to a downturn in the housing market.

‘The people seemed to be more sincere about making a decision versus just coming out to get ideas.’ Scott Beane High Point Home Builders Association president “The crowd exceeded my expectations,” Beane said. “The people that came through this year seemed to be more ready to make a decision and move forward compared to those that came out last year.” The event, held Sept. 19-20 and Sept. 26-27, offered tours of 10 homes in Thomasville, High Point, Archdale and surrounding areas to “display what local builders have to offer,” according to Beane.

Local properties featured during the event included this home at 497 Ansley Way in High Point. Homes ranging from $150,000 to $575,000 were included, and Beane said some of those homes were sold. “The people seemed to be more sincere about making a decision versus just coming out to get ideas,” he said. Beane said this year’s selection of homes contained the latest trends, including hardwood floors and granite counter tops. Builders that participated in the event were Beane Construction, DR Horton Inc., Duke Brothers LLC, J Bar D Construction Co. and Shugart Enterprises LLC. “It was a successful event, especially given the local housing market,” he said. “I’m very happy with the outcome, and we look forward to next year’s parade.” | 888-3617

Two charged with sex crime involving child ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

DAVIDSON COUNTY – Davidson County authorities have charged two people with a sex crime involving a child, while a third person faces a charge of trying to intimidate a witness in the case. Sheriff’s office investigators received a report

Sept. 24 regarding an alleged sexual offense against a 6-year-old. Detectives investigated the allegation and concluded that two men had committed one count of firstdegree sexual offense against the child sometime between Sept. 1 and Sept. 24, according to the sheriff’s office. Earlier this week, detec-

tives took an additional report with information that the child’s mother had received threats in an effort to prevent her from testifying in the case. Investigators arrested Derrick Casey Owens, 27, of Lexington, after concluding that he attempted to intimidate the woman, who is acting as a witness

in the case, deputies said. Owens was arrested without incident Tuesday and charged with one count of intimidating a witness, according to the sheriff’s office. He was jailed under a $5,000 bond. Also arrested Tuesday at their homes were Jerry Len Brown and Moses Lee Leonard Jr., both of Early

James Road, Lexington, deputies said. Both men were charged with one count of firstdegree sex offense with a child, deputies said. Brown, 40, and Leonard, 30, each were jailed under $100,000 bonds. Both men have appearances scheduled for Nov. 9 in Davidson County District Court.

Davidson health department offers vaccines ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

DAVIDSON COUNTY – The Davidson County Health Department will offer seasonal flu and pneumonia vaccines next week. According to the health department, the seasonal flu vaccine is readily available this year and the department will be following the guidelines established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for giving the flu vaccine, which recommends providing the vaccine to anyone age 6 months and older. Flu clinics will be held in Thomasville, Lexington and

Denton. On Monday, a clinic will be held at the Davidson County Health Department, 203 Old Lexington Road, Thomasville, 1 to 4 p.m. An additional clinic is scheduled at the health department’s Lexington site at 915 Greensboro St. from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Wednesday. In Denton, the health department will hold a clinic at Central United Methodist Church, 276 W. First St., from 9 a.m. to noon Thursday, Oct. 8. According to the health department, most people will need to receive a pneumonia vaccine only once to provide lifetime

protection. A second dose is only recommended for those people age 65 and older who received their first dose prior to age 65. A new CDC recommendation is that people who smoke receive the pneumonia vaccine, regardless of their age. There will be a $22 charge for the flu vaccine and a $41 charge for the pneumonia vaccine or the health department will bill Medicare/Medicaid for the vaccine. The health department will accept cash, check and debit or credit cards for payment. In order to bill Medicare/Medicaid, those getting shots must provide


their Medicare/Medicaid card. Medicare recipients must have both Medicare Part A and Part B in order for Medicare to pay. People with Medicare C must go to their primary physician in order for Medicare to pay for the vaccine, or they can come to the health department clinic and pay for the vaccine out-ofpocket. An appointment is required to get the vaccine. The Davidson County Health Department can be reached at 236-3096. Registration for flu shots also will be available through the county’s Web site.

BROWNS SUMMIT – A Highway Patrol trooper who pulled a woman from a rain-swollen creek in McLeansville in June was one of several area patrolmen honored by state officials Wednesday for heroism. Trooper T.G. Wilson received the N.C. Department of Crime Control & Public Safety’s Heroism Award and the Highway Patrol’s Award of Valor

for initially saving the life of 50-year-old Roseanne Tippett of Browns Summit on June 3. During heavy rainfall that night, Wilson came upon a flooded roadway near a creek in the 6700block of McLeansville Road near Northeast Middle School. After activating his emergency lights, Wilson stopped to warn other motorists of the area and prevent them from crossing. Tippett, who was trav-

eling on a moped scooter avoided Wilson, lost control and crashed into the waterway. She was overcome by the fast-moving waters and Wilson, using a flotation device and rope, jumped into the creek and pulled her to safety. While interviewing her, he suspected she had been drinking alcohol. She then ran from him and jumped back into the creek. Wilson tried to save the woman a second time, but was unsuccessful.

Issues of color still ripple through American identity


ear Abby: “Wondering in Goldsboro, N.C.,� asked why President Barack Obama is considered to be African-American when he’s biracial. While your response was accurate, you missed an opportunity to educate your readers by failing to give the historical context as to why most people refer to him as African-American. There was a time in this country when “blacks�/ African- Americans were considered only to be three-fifths (3/5) of a human being. Also, if a person had one drop of “black� blood they were considered black. Although as a society we have progressed intellectually and in our understanding of what a human being is, we continue to hold on to archaic beliefs about skin color that not only pigeonhole an individual, but may force an individual to choose what so-called racial group that he/she identifies with most. I can clearly see that the conversation regarding “race� and skin color must be continued in this country. Though we’ve “come a long way, baby,� we still have a long way to go in understanding this country’s deep-rooted responses to skin color. – Living in America Dear Living: I think if one digs deep enough,

we will come to the realization that there has always been a component of economic ADVICE exploitation and Dear perceived Abby economic ■■■ threat that is, and has been, at the root of racial discrimination. (But that’s just my opinion.) Read on: Dear Abby: In Obama’s book, “Dreams From My Father,� he calls himself a black man of mixed descent. His decision to do that is as much a political decision as it is a personal one. Most people of color of mixed race in our society have felt we had to choose to be the darker color because we can never be white. In our society, most people who do or don’t know of Obama’s mixed background would treat him as a black man. (If you saw him walking down the street, would you say, “Hey, that guy’s half-white!�) By embracing his political identity he supports and strengthens all black people in the U.S. by standing proudly as one of us. – Nicole in Marin County, Calif. Dear Abby: African-American does not denote skin color, but an

ethnic culture, a term that describes those of us who are descendants of captive Africans in America. It holds the same level of pride as it does for those who pronounce they are Italian-American or Asian-American. – Michelle in Maryland Dear Abby: You write that the term AfricanAmerican is used in this country as a label that describes skin color. I believe you are correct, and that’s the problem. “African- American� identifies origin or ancestry, not skin color. Furthermore, if the anthropologists are right, then – going back far enough – we are ALL African-American. – AfricanAmerican Member of the Human Race in New Jersey Dear Abby: Why can’t we all be called just plain AMERICANS if we grow up in America and are citizens of America? I think a lot of people have wondered this. – Sandy B. in Harrisburg, Pa. Dear Sandy: That’s a good question and one that I hope will one day be put to rest – if not by our children, then by our children’s children. – Sincerely, Abby DEAR ABBY is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

High-tech mannequins aid nursing students BY LAURA OLENIACZ SUN JOURNAL OF NEW BERN


EW BERN – When her mother started coughing and gasping for air in long, ragged breaths, Jenny Middleswarth yelled for help and two nurses rushed to the side of her mother’s hospital bed. “Call the doctor!” said nurse Mary Gehrki, as she helped to raise the woman in her bed, take her vital signs and do an assessment of her condition before hooking her up to an oxygen mask. “We have a patient here who is having difficulty breathing,” nursing supervisor Ashley Fenwick said, communicating with the doctor using a portable phone. The Sun Journal of New Bern reported that at the doctor’s orders, the nurses prepared to give medication to the woman to treat the fluid buildup

Belinda Barnhill Craven Community College in her lungs that was causing her to struggle for breath. When her heart stopped beating, the nurses started cardiopulmonary resuscitation and prepared to rush her to the intensive care unit. “Oh, help her please!” said Middleswarth, after the nurses had coaxed her away from the side of the hospital bed. “Somebody help her, please!” But all turned out well, as the hospital scene was a mock scenario played out by Gehrki, Fenwick, Middleswarth and Michelle White, who are all students in Craven Community College’s associate degree in nursing program. The students were learning how to respond to a patient experiencing respiratory and cardiac failure by using the college’s new nursing simulation laboratory, which features


Craven Community College’s “sim man” acts like a real patient in helping nursing students at the New Bern school. computerized mannequins that can be programmed for various medical scenarios based on what the students are learning in class. The lab will officially open to students for the spring semester in 2010, but students are already using some of the equipment and laboratory space, said Belinda Barnhill, coordinator for lab and clinical services at the college. The new lab is being set up in more than 2,000 square feet of renovated space in Perdue Hall at the New Bern campus, replacing the approximately 200-square-foot old lab of three hospital beds in the back of a classroom. The new lab has a “debriefing room” where students can watch a DVD of their performance of working on one of the lab’s 10 mannequins. The college has a child mannequin, a baby, a pregnant female that can give birth, and a high-tech mannequin called the METI iStan that can sweat, cry, vomit, and respond to the quality of care provided by the students. “If he’s not getting enough oxygen, his fingers will turn blue just like ours

would, and so do his toes,” Barnhill said of the METI iStan. “He is much more sophisticated and can react to the care the students give.” The project will cost about $350,000, and is paid for using grants from CarolinaEast Health System, The Harold H. Bate Foundation, and donors including Patricia and Bill Naumann. Bill Naumann is a member of the college’s Board of Trustees. Barnhill said the idea for the lab began last fall when school officials were looking at ways to give the students a more hands-on learning environment. They looked at technology at East Carolina University and at Lenoir and Pitt community colleges. “We wanted something that will be very realistic,” Barnhill said. The college officials hope to showcase the finished product in February or March and to work collaboratively with CarolinaEast and other departments using the lab, said Kathleen Gallman, the college’s chair for health professions. Barnhill said she hopes the new

technology will help students retain information more effectively, as they are learning hands-on what they are learning in class. She added that with the mannequins, the instructors can let the students make mistakes. “If we let them do something inappropriate, they’ll be able to pick that out so it never happens with a real patient,” she said. Fenwick said this wasn’t the first time she has participated in the respiratory failure scenario, and she felt much more comfortable reacting to the patient’s condition the second time. The first time, she and another student were upset after the scenario, even to the point of tears, because of the lifelike nature of the experience. “It was very intense when you see this person in front of you changing so dramatically and so quickly,” she said. “It was very intense, but I feel like practicing made things a lot easier when you feel more comfortable in what you’re doing. I think it makes it a lot easier to cope with things that happen.”

Stein Mart shoppers assist cause HIGH POINT – A local charitable organization again is teaming up with a local retailer to help bring clothing to the poor. The Salvation Army of High Point will partner with Stein Mart for another Give & Receive event. The clothing drive runs today through Saturday. Shoppers who bring clean, gently used garments in good condition to any Stein Mart store during the next three days will receive savings on new fall fashions and more. For each item donated, contributors will receive a coupon for 20 percent off any item. Those who donate will have the opportunity to redeem their coupons on a variety of items, including fashion apparel for women, men and children from many top designers and brands, as well as accessories, gifts, linens and shoes. The Salvation Army said they are partnering with

the store because fall and winter are approaching and many residents are facing challenging economic times. Stein Mart previously teamed with The Salvation Army for Give & Receive events in October 2008 and last February. About 800,000

TVA to raise height of 4 dams KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – The Tennessee Valley Authority is moving to raise the height of four dams in eastern Tennessee with sand-filled containers after a new analysis suggested the dams could be topped by a worstcase flood. TVA officials said Wednesday that such a flood is “extremely unlikely” and would have to be four or five times the size of the worst flood on record in 1857.

Most recover from frightening attack of unknown cause


ear Dr. Donohue: I have not seen you write anything on sarcoidosis. My 42-yearold son was recently diagnosed with it. – J.G. Few readers are familiar with sarcoidosis, an inflammatory illness that attacks many tissues and organs. Granulomas are one of its hallmarks. They are heaps of dead and dying cells that have been engaged in hand-to-hand combat with the as-yet-undiscovered cause of this illness. It often strikes healthy people around age 40. Many organs are involved, but the lungs top the list. Liver, skin, eyes and heart are other targets. Some sarcoidosis patients have no symptoms, and the illness is discovered on a routine chest X-ray. Others are desperately ill. Since the lung is the organ involved, in most cases, respiratory symptoms are its chief signs. Cough and breathlessness on slight exertion indicate lung involvement. Loss of energy, fever and weight loss are other nonspecific signs. Rashes can occur. One of them is erythema nodosum, an outbreak of painful red bumps, most often seen on the leg. With eye involvement, people become sensitive to light and must keep the eyes shaded. Dry eyes are another sign. Cortisone drugs are the mainstays of treatment. The decision to treat has to be carefully weighed,
















since the illness often resolves on its own. When symptoms make it HEALTH difficult to carry on Dr. Paul the tasks of Donohue daily life, ■■■ treatment is started. I have an acquaintance who has had sarcoidosis for more than 20 years and has not had to take any medicine and has worked quite hard since the day he was diagnosed. I hope your son has as benign a course as my acquaintance has had. Many do. Dear Dr. Donohue: For the past two years, my sed rate has been high. I have taken all kinds of tests to find out why, but nothing has turned up. Can this be normal? I am 82 and in good health. – E.S. The sedimentation rate (sed rate) is a simple office test where blood is put in a calibrated tube and remains there for one hour. The distance the red blood cells fall (sediment) from the top of the tube in that time is the sed rate. This test doesn’t point to one particular illness. It indicates that there is body inflammation. The doctor’s job is to find out where the inflammation is and whether it is significant. Obesity, aging, kidney

disease, anemia and high cholesterol elevate the sed rate. If the tube is not perfectly vertical during the test hour, the sed rate is abnormally high. For two years, you have had a high sed rate. Many tests have not discovered a cause. You feel fine. It might be wise at this point, to put a halt to further testing, because an isolated, high sed rate without any other signs or symptoms has little meaning. Your doctor can follow you with routine office visits. Dear Dr. Donohue: I eat a high-fiber breakfast. I also eat one banana, a large orange and some walnuts. I do not take calcium at this time, as I have read that bran keeps the body from absorbing it. Does it do so, and does it keep nutrients from the orange, banana and nuts from being absorbed? How long after I eat can I take calcium? – T.Y. Fiber can grab onto calcium and limit its absorption. To avoid that, take the calcium two to three hours after eating breakfast. If your calcium is calcium carbonate, take it with a snack, like crackers. Food promotes stomach-acid secretion, and you need some stomach acid to absorb calcium carbonate. If you take calcium citrate, you can take it anytime, with or without food. Fiber doesn’t interfere with nutrients from oranges, bananas and nuts. They have their own fiber.

Delhomme remains starter broke off his route. Still, Delhomme is on bad streak. He threw four interceptions in Carolina’s season opening loss to Philadelphia and had a key late interception to end a comeback bid in Atlanta a week later. Delhomme received a contract extension in the offseason after committing six turnovers in an upset playoff loss to Arizona. The 34-year-old Delhomme has a passer rating of 54.3 and the Panthers’ minus-8 turnover margin is the worst in the NFL. “Certainly we haven’t put up the points that we would have liked to have put up,” Delhomme said.

CHAPEL HILL — No one is more surprised by the shaky kicking of North Carolina’s Casey Barth this season than the sophomore from Wilmington. Barth is 4-of-7 in field goals this season, including a miss against Georgia Tech on Saturday that could have given his team its first points of the game and some momentum. Even though Barth has made all three field goal attempts from between 20 and 29 yards, he has missed both from the 30-

to 39-yard range. His other missed attempt was from 45 yards. “I guess I’m just getting a little antsy,” said Barth, who also missed an extra point after being perfect a year ago. “In practice, I make just about everything, so it’s kind of frustrating when I’m going out there and not hitting the ones I know I can hit.” Barth, who has missed a field goal in each of the past three games, said he

has been raising his head too soon and not finishing the kick, but mostly he’s been struggling mentally not technically. He said kicking is 90 percent mental, and the best way to prepare for games is to visualize your kicks. It’s a trick he picked up from older brother Connor Barth, a former UNC kicker who went through his own sophomore slump when he made just 11 of 21 field goals in 2005. “[Connor] talked to me a lot after the game, on Saturday and Sunday, just about the mental part,” said Casey, who always talks to his brother before and after games.


DURHAM — Duke coach David Cutcliffe demands that in order for his players to get on the field come game day, they must know their position inside and out. That’s been an especially interesting challenge for Brandon Harper, who hasn’t always known from week

to week what position he’s playing. Since the start of spring practice, Harper has switched from defensive line to offensive line, then back to defensive line, and now back to offensive line. He saw the first live offensive snaps of his life in Duke’s second game of the season,. Last week against N.C. Central, he found himself in the starting

lineup at left guard. “Moving back and forth hasn’t really been a problem for me,” said Harper, who likely will start again Saturday when Virginia Tech comes to town for a noon kickoff. “It gives me confidence that the coaches think I can step into these different roles and compete. “I like the challenge. That excites me, to see if I can do it.”

CHARLOTTE (AP) — Though Jake Delhomme has just two touchdown passes and seven interceptions, he’ll remain winless Carolina’s starting quarterback. Asked Wednesday if Delhomme was still his guy moving forward, Panthers coach John Fox left no doubt. “I didn’t think that was a question, but if that needs to be clarified, yes with a capital Y,” Fox said. Delhomme threw two interceptions and lost a fumble in the Panthers’ 21-7 loss to Dallas Monday to drop Carolina to 0-3. But the second pick, returned for a game-clinching touchdown, came when receiver Steve Smith

he PGA Tour closed its season in spectacular fashion on Sunday. Well, actually, it didn’t. Phil Mickelson stormed from four shots back at the start of the final round of the PGA Tour Championship to win by three strokes. Tiger Woods, meanwhile, finished second – which was good enough to wrap up the FedEx

Cup crown and the $10 million check that goes with it. How exciting. Golf’s two most compelling stars shared the spotlight at East Lake in Atlanta. You couldn’t write a better final act to the season. Too bad that wasn’t the final act. Now that the “playoffs” are over, the PGA season continues

with what the Tour calls the “fall series.” Don’t look for many legends in this fall as the five-tournament schedule features stops in Verona, New York from Oct. 1-4; Las Vegas from Oct. 15-18; Scottsdale, Ariz. from Oct. 22-25; Madison, Miss. from Oct. 29-Nov. 1; and Lake Buena Vista, Florida from Nov. 12-15. You won’t see many big-name


players in these tournaments. These five events give lesserknown competitors a chance to shine and pocket some big bucks. That’s fine. It just proves awfully anticlimactic. It’s kinda like following a classic Super Bowl with five Pro Bowls. – MARK MCKINNEY ENTERPRISE SPORTS EDITOR

Gordon needs ‘perfect’ ending in Chase races N

ot surprisingly, playing second fiddle is hard for Jeff Gordon to take. Playing third fiddle is even harder for the four-time champion. And that’s just on his own team. Gordon, who won the last of his NASCAR Cup championships in 2001, gradually watched as Jimmie Johnson moved past him as the most successful driver in the Hendrick Motorsports pecking order. The baton was passed two years ago when Johnson beat his teammate by winning the Chase for the ChampionSPORTS ship in a scintillating battle in which Johnson had an average finished of 5.0 Greer to Gordon’s 5.1 Smith Gordon won six races that season, the ■■■ most since 2001. But Johnson won 10 and then followed that with a seven-win season and a third consecutive championship in 2008 while Gordon went winless and slipped to seventh in the standings. As the Cup circus readies for the third race in this year’s Chase, Gordon is third among the Hendrick talents as Mark Martin surged past Johnson and Gordon in his first year with the team. Heading into Sunday’s 400-miler at Kansas Speedway, Martin holds a 10-point lead over Johnson as they threaten to turn the Chase into a two-man show. Gordon is in eighth, 122 points behind Martin. Martin won the Chase opener at New Hampshire, to give him five victories for the season, as Johnson finished fourth. Gordon was 15th. Johnson won last Sunday at Dover for his fourth win of the year as Martin finished second. Gordon, who got his only win this season in April at Texas, was a disappointing sixth at a place where he expected to be a contender. “When it all comes down to those final 10 races in the Chase as to whether you’re going to win the championship or not, and the first two don’t go the way you’d like them to and you could get beat by anybody, and then your teammates are up there winning the first two races, it’s very frustrating,� Gordon said. But not enough for Gordon to get depressed, even though he thinks that he had a car capable of challenging Martin for second place on a day that Johnson’s Chevrolet was untouchable. He knows that his team must pick up the pace if Johnson performs as he has the past three years and goes on another tear of top-five finishes down the stretch. “We have got to live up to our full potential,� Gor-

Martin and Johnson have left Gordon behind so far in the Chase for the Championship. don said. “We were a second- or third-place car last week at Dover. We didn’t finish there. Jimmie and the 48 team, by far, they had the best car, the best team, and they won the race. So you have got to get your absolute best, and we haven’t done that the first two races. “There’s going to be a lot more drama over these next eight races, and all we can do is go and get our absolute best. I just hope that this weekend in Kansas, our absolute best is a car and a team that’s capable of winning, and we pull that off. ... You really have to be in the top three, I believe, to be able to be a winning car, and that’s where we have got to put ourselves in position for.� A top-three finish is a possibility for Gordon this weekend. He won the first two races at Kansas and owns three top-five finishes in the last six races here. Gordon is enthused about his chances this weekend because his cars have run well on other 1.5-mile tracks this year. That also bodes well for upcoming races at other intermediate tracks such as California Speedway, Lowe’s Motor Speedway, Texas Motor Speedway and Homestead-Miami Speedway. He’s also

a former winner at Martinsville Speedway and Talladega Superspeedway and continues to run well at those tracks. The one track among the eight left in the Chase that he worries about is Phoenix International Raceway. “The only track that I see where we have to make big gains on is Phoenix,� Gordon said. “I feel like all of the other tracks, we are very capable. We have got to do our job in every aspect – from me driving the car on the double-file restarts, getting the most out of it, to communicating well with (crew chief) Steve Letarte, getting the right adjustments made on the pit stops, having solid pit stops – especially in the closing laps or the final pit stop. “I mean, those things are all crucial that they have to happen at the right time. That can be the difference between winning and finishing sixth, and that’s something we have not done collectively as a team well enough in these first two. We all are aware that we have to do that. We have to do it perfectly these next eight.� | 888-3519

Johnson: Seven titles not possible CONCORD (AP) — Jimmie Johnson has three championships under his belt and is full steam ahead in pursuit of a fourth. Seven, though? He doesn’t think he’s got that in him. The three-time defending champion said Wednesday he believes the NASCAR record of seven titles will probably never be broken. The mark is shared by Richard Petty and the late Dale Earnhardt. Johnson’s teammate, Jeff Gordon, leads all active drivers with four championships — a mark Johnson is trying to equal this season.

“Man, seven, I don’t think it’s possible,� Johnson said at Lowe’s Motor Speedway, where he was seated next to Petty after a small ceremony declaring the two drivers “Kings of the Sport.� “With what Richard did and what Earnhardt Sr. did, I just don’t think seven is a number you are going to get to. It’s tough. You look at Jeff, trying to get his fifth, and all the success he’s had, I think they’re safe up there with seven. I hope to prove them wrong, I’m not saying I don’t want to try, but we’re at three.� Johnson is currently ranked second in the stand-

ings and trails Hendrick Motorsports teammate Mark Martin by just 10 points. But he’s coming off a dominating win Sunday at Dover Interna-

tional Speedway, where he completed a season sweep that left the rest of the championship challengers frustrated by another Johnson victory.

Meyer: Tebow ‘ terrific’ GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Florida coach Urban Meyer says quarterback Tim Tebow is improving after sustaining a concussion. Meyer said Wednesday on the weekly Southeastern Conference teleconference that Tebow “looked terrific� when he saw him late Tuesday night. “That’s the best I’ve seen him,� Meyer said. Meyer also saw Tebow earlier Tuesday, when the coach went through balance and memory tests with his star player, and said he just looked OK. Tebow spent Saturday night in a Kentucky hospital after sustaining a concussion during a third-quarter sack against the Wildcats. Tebow did not practice Monday or Tuesday.


The Boise State Broncos are breathing some rare BCS air. The fifth-ranked Broncos have climbed higher and faster than any nonBCS team in the controversial system’s 12-year history. The Broncos, pride of the Western Athletic Conference, have shouldered in front of three storied powers — USC, Oklahoma and Ohio State, each with one loss. Now Boise State is trying to scale the college football equivalent of Mount Everest and become the first team from outside the six BCS conferences to play for a national title.

FSU likely to start Thomas TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Jermaine Thomas is running again with the first team at Florida State. Coach Bobby Bowden said Wednesday the sophomore tailback likely will have the starting assignment when the Seminoles visit Boston College on Saturday. Thomas started the opener against Miami, but has just 10 carries the last three games as Florida State coaches rotate their backs.



North Carolina State quarterback Russell Wilson (16) weaves through the Murray State defense during the Wolfpack’s 65-7 win on Sept. 12. State will take on much more difficult obstacles in the Wake Forest defense on the road at BB&T Field and a traffic jam when it returns to Raleigh after the game on Saturday.

State faces two potential road blocks on Saturday THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Tom O’Brien and North Carolina State are bracing for another potential headache — one that could be just as tricky as Wake Forest’s offense. After playing the Demon Deacons Saturday afternoon in Winston-Salem, the Wolfpack will have to navigate U2 concert traffic on their bus ride home. The rock band is performing at N.C. State’s home field, Carter-Finley Stadium, in front of some 60,000 fans. “They’re going to have to bus us in here somehow,� O’Brien said. The N.C. State coach isn’t overly concerned about damage to the Wolfpack’s grass playing field. Back-to-back U2 shows in Chicago left the turf at Soldier Field shredded, and by the time the Bears played their next game there, the surface had been resodded. “I probably shouldn’t be so quick to say no, but it’s been done in the past, and I know there haven’t been problems,� O’Brien said. “We won’t know until it happens.� O’Brien was the grand marshal of this year’s St. Patrick’s Day parade in Raleigh, but he shrugged off a suggestion to sneak into the stadium and listen to noted Irishman Bono.

“I really don’t know too much about (U2) ... but (my son) asked me if I was still alive when the Steve Miller Band was playing,� O’Brien quipped. “I told him, ’No, I’m still brain dead. I haven’t been around since then.�’

JAYBO IS BACK Georgia Tech’s Jaybo Shaw is expected to return and could give quarterback Josh Nesbitt a break this weekend against Mississippi State. Nesbitt had a career-high 32 carries for 97 yards and two touchdowns in last week’s win over North Carolina, but looked winded late in the game. Shaw, back from broken collarbone, could give coach Paul Johnson a chance to allow Nesbitt a breather. “It might be a situation where we can give Josh a series (off),� Johnson said. “I think it’s always good if you can get over on the side and watch a series if things aren’t going great. “Jaybo was playing really well when he got hurt so it will be interesting to see how he comes back. You certainly have a comfort level with him because he knows what is going on and he knows what is

supposed to be happening.�

A SPITTING IMAGE Under coordinator Bud Foster, Virginia Tech’s defense has finished in the top five — first twice and fourth twice — in defense in the past five seasons. So Foster was understandably displeased when they fell to 77th overall in the nation two weeks ago. After being challenged by the coach to live up to tradition, the Hokies rebounded last week by holding No. 17 Miami to 209 yards. Linebacker Cody Grimm said Foster’s methods aren’t always pleasant, but effective. “I don’t wear a visor, but you would hope to have a visor on usually because stuff will be flying in your face as he gets going,� Grimm said of Foster’s rants. “He can coach hard. “When he’s (angry), you don’t want to be in the front of the huddle. He always messes around about it as well, but he’ll start yelling and sometimes a little saliva might get on you. ... Whenever he gets on you like that, you have to learn from it and realize that he’s yelling at you for a reason — he wants you to play the best football that you can.�

Big East, Big 12 set for Yankee Stadium bowl NEW YORK (AP) — The teams are set, one from the Big East, one from the Big 12. The site: The new $1.5 billion Yankee Stadium. Now all the new bowl game in the Bronx needs is a name before its debut in December 2010.

“If you’re looking for suggestions, maybe we should call it the Jeter Bowl,� Bronx Borough president Ruben Diaz Jr. said Wednesday at a news conference to announce the bowl. The leagues and the New York Yankees have

a four-year agreement in place, running through the 2013 season. The payout to each team will be about $2 million. For the Yankees, they get another event they hope will fill their 57,545-seat stadium. “The game underscores our promise to use Yan-

kees Stadium year-round,� said Yankees president Randy Levine, who presided over a gathering at the stadium that included Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner and the commissioners from each conference.

CINCINNATI (AP) — Defensive lineman Jonathan Fanene had tears in his eyes as he recalled the moment his phone call finally got through to his mother in American Samoa. Fanene and two other Cincinnati Bengals players spent a tense night Tuesday trying to track down family and friends in their homeland, parts of which were devastated by a tsunami. Dozens were killed and many are missing on the South Pacific islands. Fanene, defensive lineman Domata Peko and rookie linebacker Rey Maualuga had trouble getting calls through to relatives in American Samoa. All three said Wednesday that their immediate family members seem to be all right.

Anderson replaces Quinn THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

BEREA, Ohio — Derek Anderson will replace Brady Quinn and start at quarterback for the Cleveland Browns on Sunday against Cincinnati. Coach Eric Mangini has decided to go with Anderson, a Pro Bowler in 2007, over Quinn, a former first-round draft pick who opened the season as Cleveland’s starter, but was benched at halftime last Sunday in Baltimore. Mangini believes the Browns have a better chance to move the ball with Anderson. “I’m excited about the opportunity,� Anderson said. “We’re all competitors, we all want to play. I’m ready to go.�

NO HASSELBECK BRENTON, Wash. — The Seahawks are planning to be without quarterback Matt Hasselbeck and best blocker Walter Jones again on Sunday. Coach Jim Mora said Wednesday he does not expect his three-time Pro Bowl passer or his nine-time Pro Bowl left tackle to play at the undefeated Indianapolis Colts.

Ward inks $37-million deal with ‘Canes RALEIGH (AP) — The Carolina Hurricanes have locked up goaltender Cam Ward for six more years. The Hurricanes on Wednesday signed Ward to a $37.8 million contract that begins next season and runs through 2015-16. The new deal will pay the fifth-year goalie an average of $6.3 million per year. He will earn $3.5 million this season under the terms of his current three-year deal signed in 2007, which expires after this season. The

new deal prevents him from becoming a restricted free agent. “The pressure’s going to be there to play like an elite goaltender now that I’m being paid like one,� Ward said. “That’s not something that I’ve shied away (from) in the past, and that’s why I ultimately chose to be a goaltender, to handle that pressure and play up to that.� The 25-year-old allowed an average of 2.44 goals last season while leading the Hurricanes to their first

playoff berth since 2006, claiming consecutive road victories in Game 7s at New Jersey and Boston and helping them reach the Eastern Conference finals. Already the club’s winningest postseason goalie with 23 playoff wins, his career record of 120-77-18 is 10 victories shy of the franchise record. The deal was announced two days before Carolina opens the regular season against Philadelphia. (water, sewer, electricity, cable tv & WiFi)

Vaccine is top business concern NEW YORK (AP) – A new survey has found that when it comes to preparing for a swine flu outbreak, the top concern for most U.S. business leaders is getting enough vaccine for their employees. The Business Roundtable survey also says about one-third of business leaders want more up-to-date information from the government about the flu’s severity.

Moody’s executive denies allegations

Signs show growing economy WASHINGTON (AP) – The economy shrank less than expected in the second quarter as businesses and consumers trimmed their spending at a slower pace, buttressing beliefs that the economy is now growing. The 0.7 percent dip in gross domestic product for the April-June quarter follows the 6.4 percent annualized drop in the first three months of this year, the worst slide in nearly three decades. In the final quarter of last year, the

economy sank at a rate of 5.4 percent The new reading on second-quarter GDP, reported by the Commerce Department on Wednesday, shows the economy shrinking less than the 1 percent pace previously estimated. It also was better than the annualized 1.1 percent drop that economists were predicting. The final revision of second-quarter GDP comes on the last day of the third quarter, in which many analysts predict the

Toys for $10

economy started growing again at a pace of about 3 percent. “Growth should be solidly positive,” said Mark Vitner, economist at Wells Fargo Securities. Gross domestic product measures the value of all goods and services — from machines to manicures — produced in the U.S. It is the best estimate of the nation’s economic health. A main reason for the second-quarter upgrade: businesses didn’t cut

back spending on equipment and software nearly as deeply as the government had thought. Consumers also didn’t trim their spending as much. But on Wall Street, a surprise drop in the Chicago Purchasing Managers Index, considered a precursor to the national Institute for Supply Management index to be released on Thursday, sent stocks reeling. The Dow Jones industrial average lost more than

80 points in midday trading, and broader indices also fell. Many analysts predict the economy started growing again in the July-September quarter, due partly to President Barack Obama’s $787 billion stimulus package and the government’s now defunct Cash for Clunkers program, which had ginned up auto sales. It offered people rebates of up to $4,500 to buy new cars and trade in less efficient gas guzzlers.

IMF points to world recovery

WASHINGTON (AP) – The chief credit officer of Moody’s Investors Service told Congress Wednesday that a former analyst’s allegations of inflated ratings and conflicts of interest at the firm are groundless. Richard Cantor testified that the firm reviewed the complaints by ex-analyst Eric Kolchinsky, who was suspended from his job, and found them to be “unsupported.” Kolchinsky has refused to cooperate with Moody’s inquiry into the matter, Cantor said.

ISTANBUL, Turkey (AP) – Likely losses from the financial crisis in the three years to 2010 have been reduced by $600 billion to $3.4 trillion as the world economy grows faster than previously expected, the International Monetary Fund said Wednesday. The organization warned however that the impetus for far-reaching financial reforms risked being lost if the improving situation leads to complacency. In its half-yearly Global Financial Stability Report presented in Istanbul,

Turkey, the fund said concerted efforts by governments and central banks to deal with the crisis and fledgling signs of a global economic recovery have helped limit the losses. “Systemic risks have been substantially reduced following unprecedented policy actions and nascent signs of improvement in the real economy,” the IMF report said. “There is growing confidence that the global economy has turned the corner, underpinning the improvements in financial

markets,” it added. The IMF said its analysis suggests that U.S. banks are more than halfway through the loss cycle to 2010, whereas in Europe loss recognition is less advanced, reflecting differences in the regions’ economic cycles. A top IMF official noted that the conference in Istanbul was taking place just over a year since the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy triggered the sharpest phase of the global financial and economic crisis.

Kodak CEO to stay through 2013 ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) – Eastman Kodak Co.’s chairman and chief executive, Antonio Perez, has agreed to remain at the helm through 2013, the photography products maker said Wednesday. Perez, a native of Spain who turns 64 in November, ran Hewlett-Packard Co.’s digital printing operations before moving to Kodak in 2003 and succeeding Dan Carp as CEO in June 2005.

Chevron names chairman, CEO SAN RAMON, Calif. (AP) – Chevron Corp., the secondlargest U.S. oil company, said Wednesday that its board has promoted vice chairman John S. Watson to chairman and chief executive. Watson, 52, will succeed David J. O’Reilly, who is retiring from the company after 41 years, including 10 years as chairman and CEO. O’Reilly, 62, led two of the company’s biggest deals — its 2001 acquisition of Texaco Inc. and its 2005 purchase of Unocal Corp.

Wal-Mart announces holiday promotion BENTONVILLE, Ark. (AP) – Wal-Mart Stores Inc., the world’s largest retailer, said Wednesday it will offer more than 100 toys at $10 during the key holiday season. Wal-Mart is offering the promotion to attract recession-weary shoppers during the crucial holiday season, when toy retailers record up to 40 percent of annual sales. Additionally, Walmart stores will match any local competitor’s advertised offer on the same toy product if it falls below $10. That offer will expire after Christmas. During last year’s holiday season, the Bentonville, Ark.-based retailer promoted just 10 toys at the $10 price.

The toy push comes as Wal-Mart works to hold on to gains it has made during the recession as bargain-conscious consumers have traded down to cheaper products and focused on the necessities — both its specialties. Wal-Mart Chairman Robson Walton said Wednesday that “sales have been tough,” despite gains from its Asian operations. Some of the toys WalMart is promoting this holiday include Barbie Cut and Style Rapunzel, a Play-Doh Burger Builder Set, Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Deluxe Action Figures, and My Little Pony So Soft Newborn.

NEW YORK (AP) – The stock market had a fitting end to a stellar but erratic third quarter as investors still ambivalent about the economy shuttled between bouts of buying and selling. Wall Street’s major indexes ended the JulySeptember period with big gains Wednesday as investors placed more bets that the recovery will keep gathering momentum. The Dow Jones industrials and Standard & Poor’s 500 index both ended the quarter with gains of more than 15 percent, even as they pulled back modestly on the quarter’s last day. The gains didn’t always come easily during the quarter, and the Dow’s performance is proof. The average, which had its best three-month showing in 11 years, came within 82 points of reclaiming 10,000, only to fall back as

investors’ optimism was chilled by news that housing and manufacturing weren’t as strong as many had thought. On the quarter’s last day, stocks got an early lift from an improvement in the government’s report on the second-quarter gross domestic product, then plunged on news of a surprise drop in the September Chicago Purchasing Managers index, which measures Midwestern manufacturing. The rally began in March, with the first signs that the economy might be recovering. The Dow ended Wednesday down 29.92, or 0.3 percent, at 9,712.28 after falling as much as 134 points. The S&P 500 index fell 3.53, or 0.3 percent, to 1,057.08. The Nasdaq composite index fell 1.62, or 0.1 percent, to 2,122.42.

would apply for building permits in advance of making its choice. Although the dates cited in the permit filings suggest the decision might come as early as October, Boeing spokeswoman Yvonne Leach said Tuesday that “regardless of the dates in the filings, we are giving ourselves until the end of the year.” The permit applications, reported by Charleston’s Post and Courier newspaper, seek approval to

construct a building measuring 450 feet by 1,600 feet, or 12 acres, and to clear 82 acres of land for surrounding parking and taxiways. In August, Boeing officials described the permits they intended to file as “a procedural step” and insisted the permits didn’t mean a decision had already been made. “Filing at this time is necessary because the permitting process is comprehensive and requires

substantial lead time,” Boeing’s head of labor relations, Doug Kight, told employees Aug. 26. The Everett site where Boeing assembles all its wide-body jets covers more than 1,000 acres. The main assembly building has a 98-acre footprint divided into six long assembly bays. The first 787 final-assembly line, inside the easternmost bay, is just over 350 feet wide and 1,600 feet long.

BofA sells some operations to Ameriprise NEW YORK (AP) – Bank of America Corp. said Wednesday it is selling the long-term asset management business of one of its units to Ameriprise Financial Inc. Ameriprise, a financial planning services firm based in Minneapolis, will pay between $900 million and $1.2 billion in cash for Columbia Management’s long-term asset management business. The division has $165 billion in equity

and fixed-income assets under management. The final price will be based on asset flows and investor consents leading up to the closing of the deal. Charlotte, N.C.-based Bank of America has been among the banks hardest hit by the recession and mounting loan losses. The bank has received $45 billion in government bailout money over the past year. It was also required by the government in May to raise

an additional $33.9 billion to help protect against potential future losses should the economy struggle to recover. At that time, analysts predicted Bank of America could shed Columbia Management as part of its capital-raising efforts. However, the bank ended up raising the necessary money through other asset sales, stock offers and debt conversions. Bank of America said it is

Kohn: Fed is developing new exit tools WASHINGTON (AP) – The Federal Reserve is developing some new tools for reeling in the extraordinary support it’s provided to the economy, Fed Vice Chairman Donald Kohn said Wednesday. However, Kohn and Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta President Dennis Lockhart said they see no need to rush to boost interest rates because there are still risks to the unfolding recovery. Kohn repeated the Fed’s renewed pledge from last week that the central bank will keep rates at a record low near zero for an “extended period.” Many economists predict that will be through the rest of this year and into part of next year.

Crude and gasoline futures rise NEW YORK (AP) – Oil prices rose Wednesday after a government report said the United States’ gasoline stockpiles dropped unexpectedly. Benchmark crude for November delivery added $1.55 at $68.26 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. In London, Brent crude rose $1.34 to $66.83 a barrel on the ICE Futures exchange.

European stocks drop on manufacturing data LONDON (AP) – European stocks dropped Wednesday as weak readings on manufacturing and jobs in the world’s largest economy offset a U.S. government report that suggested the recession is ending. Germany’s DAX closed down 0.7 percent at 5,675.16, Britain’s FTSE 100 was 0.5 percent lower at 5,133.90 and France’s CAC-40 slipped 0.5 percent to 3,795.41. Wall Street opened higher, but soon slipped after the publication of a key regional economic indicator that unexpectedly fell.

Conditions combined for devastating tsunami WASHINGTON (AP) – Because of a lethal combination of geology and geography, the people of American Samoa didn’t stand much of a chance. Almost every condition that triggers bad tsunamis was in place this time, generating waves that raced toward the island territory at speeds approaching 530 mph, or as fast as a 747 jumbo jet. And there was almost nothing to slow the water down. It all started with a type of earthquake that tends to generate strong tsunamis because of the angle at which the ground breaks. Also, the quake was extremely powerful, with a magnitude of 8.0. It struck just below the ocean floor, which means very little lost energy. And it happened in deep water, which means bigger waves. The deeper water also meant the tsunami sped along the ocean faster. American Samoa happened to be close to the epicenter, about 125 miles, and at just the right angle, with almost no shallow water to slow the speeding waves down. Put that all together and there was less than 25 minutes, maybe as little as 13 minutes, between the ground shaking and the first tremendous waves swamping Samoa. And it didn’t help that an international computerized system, designed for relief agencies to figure out if they needed to respond, had a computer failure that caused it to pooh-pooh the


called the tsunami warning center in Hawaii, while the island’s chief meteorologist phoned homeland security to activate the warning system. Just before 7 a.m. local time, bulletins were issued and alerts aired on TV and radio. But there wasn’t enough time. Four sets of waves 15 to 20 feet high hit. As of Wednesday afternoon, the death toll had climbed well over 100.

“It’s one of those heart-wrenching situations where you have some time, but what can you do? It’s not much time,” said Eric Geist, a tsunami specialist and geophysicist at the U.S. Geological Survey in Menlo Park, Calif. Tsunamis are towering waves triggered by earthquakes. They can top 100 feet, and can stick around for as much as an hour, recede violently, then come back hours later.

Hudson ‘Miracle’ pilots to reunite for flight to N.C. NEW YORK (AP) – The pilots who landed a US Airways jet safely in the Hudson River will reunite in the cockpit today for the first time for a flight out of New York, the airline said. Capt. Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger and 1st Officer Jeffrey Skiles will pilot a flight from LaGuardia Airport to Charlotte – the destination of the plane they ditched in the Hudson on Jan. 15,

saving the lives of all 155 people on board. Today’s flight will be Sullenberger’s first as a US Airways captain since the so-called Miracle on the Hudson. US Airways announced Monday that Sullenberger would be making regular flights and supervising other pilots as part of the airline’s safety management team. Skiles has been back flying

with US Airways since April. Sullenberger landed his Airbus A320 in the Hudson after a collision with a flock of geese killed power in both engines minutes after takeoff from LaGuardia. He wrote about the landing in “Highest Duty: My Search for What Really Matters,” with coauthor Jeffrey Zaslow. The book is due out next month. Sullenberger and Skiles won

Senate climate bill drops ‘cap and trade’ terminology

praise for their textbook response to the loss of power. Their plane was at just 2,800 feet, giving them three-and-a-half minutes to try to restart the engines or find an airport for a landing. Sullenberger told the National Transportation Safety Board in June that he glided into the Hudson near Manhattan’s ferry terminals to increase the chances of a rescue.

WASHINGTON (AP) – Senate Democrats tried out a new catch phrase Wednesday to sell their global warming bill: pollution reduction and investment, or PRI. But it’s just another name for cap and trade, a term derided by Republican critics as “cap and tax” because it will increase energy prices and which Democratic polls have shown faring poorly with voters. The rebranding is an indication of the uphill battle the climate bill – which would cap greenhouse gases and also allow industries to buy emission allowances – faces in the Senate. A number of Democratic senators, currently entangled in the heated health care debate, said they continued to have trouble with key elements of the climate legislation. Several said it would be a huge challenge – perhaps impossible – to try to get a climate bill passed this year. The idea to remake cap and trade into pollution reduction and investment came from Sen. John Kerry, DMass., author of the bill unveiled Wednesday. He came up with it about a month ago to refocus attention on what the bill would do, not how it goes about doing it. “Cap and trade doesn’t mean anything to people, “ Kerry said in an interview, insisting that “this is an actual description of what’s happening here.”

In this TV publicity image released by Animal Planet, pet trainer Zac George from the series “SuperFetch” poses with his border collie Venus.

New show airing on Animal Planet proves any dog can learn any trick BY FRAZIER MOORE AP TELEVISION WRITER


EW YORK – Maybe you don’t worry about spoiling your new manicure before your nails can dry. But Anne does. Maybe you don’t have a problem with company leaving your toilet seat up or, worse, forgetting to flush. Kimberly does. Fortunately, they are both owners of dogs that, with the right kind of training can lend a helpful paw. Thanks to pet trainer extraordinaire Zak George, that’s about to happen on “SuperFetch,” which puts the “can” in canine when it premieres Saturday at 8 p.m. EDT on Animal Planet. It’s educational and fun, for dogs and humans alike. “ ‘SuperFetch’ is the first show that doesn’t focus on fixing a broken dog,” says George. “We look for people who are interested in interacting with their dog, taking their relationship with their dog

to the next level, and making their already great dog even greater.” On the first episode, George steps in to craft a training plan for Anne and her English cocker spaniel,

‘I like teaching a dog how to think, and more importantly, I like teaching the parents how to think and how to interact with their dog.’ Zak George Pet trainer Oliver. Oliver learns how to save her manicure by plucking cash from her purse to pay the manicurist and, when he and Anne arrive home, grabbing the house keys to open their front door.

Then Kimberly’s Bernese mountain dog, Bear, learns how to drop the toilet seat and flush on command whenever Kimberly’s boyfriend or brother has failed to do so. George says the key to the process is making it fun for the dog, which means identifying the “currency” the dog values most: snacks for a job well done, or maybe camouflaging the learning process as a familiar game the dog already loves. “Dogs want to please us, but they also want to know what’s in it for them,” George notes. It’s basic problem-solving: You break the trick into steps, and if you can make each step amusing, your dog (and you) will be all the more motivated. “I like teaching a dog how to think, and more importantly, I like teaching the parents how to think and how to interact with their dog,” says George. A 30-year-old Atlanta native, he used to sell real estate until six years ago. Then he became the

proud owner of Venus, a brainy border collie. “Once I saw her potential, I needed to come up with an excuse to work with her every waking moment of the day,” he says. That led to a new career for George as a pet trainer and, with Venus, a celebrity couple on YouTube videos and TV appearances including “Late Show With David Letterman.” For the record, Venus’ currency is Frisbee, which, George says, is her favorite thing in the world. Playing Frisbee with Venus is one of George’s favorite things, too. From that sort of chemistry, learning can result. “These tricks are never about the trick, they are always about the bond that occurs while teaching the trick,” says George. “The best way to bond with your dog is to teach them an amazing trick. But the trick is secondary to what we learn from our dogs in the process.” That’s the real lesson that “SuperFetch” teaches.

Daniel Craig and Hugh Jackman emerged unscathed, but “A Steady Rain” wasn’t as lucky. The two megastars opened on Broadway Tuesday to mostly positive notices in Keith Huff’s two-character police drama, with many of the critics more critical of the play than the performers. The AP said, “While both men, particularly Craig, acquit themselves well, they can’t turn the 90-minute evening into anything more than a chance to see two big-time movie stars emoting up close in a pulpy, plot-heavy entertainment.” The New York Times said, “Big names, little show. ’A Steady Rain’ ... is probably best regarded as a small, wobbly pedestal on which two gods of the screen may stand in order to be worshipped.” The New York Post described Huff’s play as a “mawkish, labored, two-hander,” while The Washington Post sniffed that the production was “an opportunity squandered.” But the (New York) Daily News was a bit more generous, calling “A Steady Rain” “a stark and modest work that’s all talk and no action. It keeps you at arms length.” Variety was even better. It called the production “riveting theater,” while Newsday said the play was “a dark, moody, small but brutal 90-minute duet ... a gorgeously acted set of monologues about moral ambiguity.”

Dealing with friends, lovers and children will be highlighted. Your numbers are 5, 13, 20, 26, 32, 42, 46 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Secrets must be kept no matter what.

A change at home will lift your spirits and help your love life. ★★★★ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Be careful when dealing with people who may want to use you or your information wrongly.

Stick to the facts and don’t allow anyone to hand out false information. Your fast action and passionate way of approaching matters will impress someone who can further your interests. ★★★




As a duplicate game ended, players drifted into the club lounge, and a player showed me today’s deal. “My partner and I had a bidding disagreement. I thought my jump-shift to three clubs was forcing to game, but when I rebid four clubs, he dropped me.” “You made five?” I asked. “East took two hearts and led the jack of diamonds. I won and cashed the A-K of trumps. When West discarded, I led a spade to dummy’s ace, picked up the trumps and claimed. Wasn’t four clubs forcing?”

11 TRICKS In “Standard” bidding, opener’s jump-shift is forcing to game but maybe not to an 11-trick game. In some auctions, responder can reasonably stop at four of a minor. Since North had an ace, his pass to four clubs was questionable; but five clubs was only a fair contract, and good defense would beat it. After East takes two hearts, he leads a spade, killing dummy’s entry. South will win and cash the A-K of trumps, but he can’t get back to fi-



nesse against East’s jack. He loses a trump.

DAILY QUESTION You hold: S K 9 6 H A K 6 5 D J 4 C J 5 4 3. Dealer, at your left, opens one club. Your partner doubles, and the next player passes. What do you say? ANSWER: Your partner has opening values or more with help for all the unbid suits. Since you have 12 points, to insist on game is reasonable. Cue-bid two clubs. If partner next bids two hearts, you’ll raise; if two diamonds, you’ll try two hearts; if two spades, you can bid 2NT. South dealer E-W 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.

12 days old A 12-day-old white lion cub is fed from a baby’s bottle at Belgrade Zoo in Serbia on Wednesday. Two white lion cubs, an extremely rare subspecies of the African lion, were born at Belgrade Zoo. White lions are unique to the Timbavati area of South Africa and are not albinos but a genetic rarity.

Mariah Carey finds freedom being ‘imperfect’ BY NEKESA MUMBI MOODY AP MUSIC WRITER


EW YORK – Lee Daniels had so much faith in Mariah Carey’s acting that when the director’s first choice to play a dowdy, no-nonsense social worker – Oscarwinner Helen Mirren – backed out, he quickly asked Carey to step in. But Daniels was well aware that in hiring Mariah Carey, the actress, he was also likely to get Mariah Carey, the diva – a high-maintenance sideshow that would include an entourage of makeup artists, assistants, publicists and other hangers-on, running counter to the energy he wanted the superstar to exude in his searing drama “Precious.” He had cast her as the lead in last year’s film “Tennessee.” So, as he gave her the role, he also issued a warning: Leave the diva act at home. “If you come with a strip of makeup on,” he recalls telling her, “I will have a backup (actress).” “I knew that she would be out of her safety zone, and I knew that there would be no one for her to rely on, to say, ‘Get me this, get me that,’ ” he said. “I could see in her eyes – ‘What is Lee doing to me?’ But I knew that she trusted me.” By putting her faith in Daniels, Carey – who famously flopped in her

After years of striving to reach an ideal – from her personal life to her music career – Carey, 39, is embracing life’s imperfections, an attitude summed up by the title of her latest album, “Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel.” Producer Tricky, responsible for hits like Rihanna’s Grammy-winning “Umbrella,” was one of the main writers and producers of the “Memoirs of an Imperfect,” along with Carey and The-Dream. Tricky says Carey is “is kind of letting people know, I’m not this perfect angel. “She has sexual songs and stuff like that that allude to stuff that she’s never really touched on before.” But Carey herself AP points to a something Singer Mariah Carey makes an appearance at Macy’s else that shows her new to promote her new fragrance “Forever,”on Tuesday in outlook – the fact that she’s dropped of one of New York. her most infamous diva making me look so bad he demands, that she only movie debut “Glitter” in brought out the ability to be photographed on her 2001 – may have finally right side. never be self-conscious proven to critics that “I don’t feel like, ‘Oh, formidable talent extends again, and that was a gift I have to be on this side, that he gave me.” to more than just her voice.

I don’t care anymore,” she says, laughing. “Sometimes I like that side – and Nick likes that side better anyway,” she adds. Nick, of course, is her husband of almost a year and a half – the actor and producer Nick Cannon.

The pair married after dating a little over a month: It was a union few took seriously at first. That’s in part because of the 12-year age gap between them (Cannon is 27), but also because they seemed to come from two different worlds. Cannon was seen as a teen star thanks to his Nickelodeon vehicles; Carey is a Grammy-winning superstar and one of the industry’s most profitable artists.
