The High Point Enterprise recently surveyed candidates for the High Point City Council and High Point mayor to gauge their support of the arts. This five-part series examines those results, as well as offering participating candidates a chance to give their views in depth.

Dana Moore, a junior at High Point University, won third place in the Chegg 12-second Video Contest. The requirements for the contest were to make a video advertisement for Chegg, an online textbook rental company.

Survey reflects state, national trends as election nears BY PAUL B. JOHNSON ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – An election season poll released last week by High Point University reflects the conventional wisdom heading down the stretch to this fall’s general election. The results of the poll by the Survey Research Center at HPU finds that voters are dissatisfied with the status quo and trending Republican heading into Election Day Nov. 2. “Our survey suggests that Democrats have an uphill battle. ... Attitudes in North Carolina reflect what pollsters and political analysts are seeing across the country,” said Martin Kifer, director of the center and a political science

department faculty member at HPU. One example – Republican Sen. Richard Burr appears to have a comfortable lead over Democratic challenger Kifer Elaine Marshall. The center’s poll found Burr with a 45 percent to 31 percent lead over Marshall, the N.C. secretary of state who campaigned Friday in Davidson County with her former primary rival, Democrat Cal Cunningham of Lexington. The remaining voters surveyed were undecided, declined to respond or expressed support for Libertarian Party candidate Mike Beitler, who received 4 percent. One result does offer some en-

couragement for Democrats. In a question about party rather than individual candidates in U.S. House races, Republicans only had a small advantage. The poll found 42 percent support for Republicans and 39 percent for Democrats, within the poll’s 5 percent margin of sampling error. The remainder were undecided or declined to respond to the question. But Kifer said other survey results don’t bode well for Democrats, such as President Barack Obama’s 55 disapproval rating and Gov. Beverly Perdue’s 43 percent disapproval rating. A major reason for the state of the political landscape involves attitudes about the economy and direction of the country, the poll found. “The survey found that state


residents are more negative about their own financial situations and somewhat pessimistic about the prospects for the business climate. Of the 400 adults polled, the majority – 51 percent – say they are worse off financially than they were one year ago. The survey also found that the majority – 54 percent – expect periods of widespread unemployment or depression over the next five years,” the center reports. A previous survey in April by the center reported that 44 percent of North Carolinians felt that their finances were worse than a year ago and 49 percent expected periods of widespread unemployment or depression during the next five years. | 888-3528

HIGH POINT — The High Point Enterprise recently mailed surveys to the three mayoral candidates and 20 candidates for High Point City Council in an effort to gauge opinions on arts issues.

nounced the elimination of the sole paid position of director and cited financial difficulties. Leaders since confirmed debt for the group, which is operating under the leadership of volunteers. The Arts Council has for about 10 years been trying to raise money to either build or purchase space for a community arts center, but it has been unsuccessful. In June, High Point Community Foundation gave $425,000 it has been holding for 10 years to the Shakespeare Festival, which was able to secure matching money. Money was from the sale of McPherson Center (now Enterprise Center), which housed arts groups, and the money originally was earmarked for an arts center, but terms of the original agreement expired. Community Foundation leaders cited lack of progress by the Arts Council in raising money for an arts center as one reason for giving the money to the Shakespeare Festival. On Sept. 29, the Arts Council announced that it and

Community Theatre will move from rented space at Enterprise Center to the city’s Parks & Recreation Department facilities on Northpoint Ave., where they will pay no rent or utilities. The move is to cut expenses. Surveys were sent to and returned by candidates before Sept. 29. Meanwhile, both Winston-Salem and Greensboro long have had community arts centers. Greensboro Cultural Center at 200 N. Davie St. is home to arts groups, including the United Arts Council of Greensboro, galleries, shops, city arts programs, an outdoor park and a restaurant. In Winston-Salem, arts offices and a theater are on Coliseum Drive. The lavish Milton Rhodes Center for the Arts opened Sept. 11 in the center of town. The 83,000square-foot center incorporates the old Sawtooth Building, and it has offices, gallery and exhibition spaces, a theater and meeting and event space. / 888-3601

Transformational Growth Plan Continues for the Next 10 Years The High Point University Board of Trustees approved the expansion of our transformational growth plan over the next 10 years. This progressive strategy of expansion, improvement and growth, is focused on ensuring that every student receives an extraordinary education in an inspiring environment with caring people.


227% And SAT scores are up 100 points in just five years

HPU has 28 new buildings


either completed or under construction, in addition to renovating 27 other structures on campus.

In May of each year, students have multi-experiential learning opportunities in an intensive four-hour course which includes study in one of 15 countries and several locations across America. For example, an art major studying painting and sculpture in Rome and Florence, a TV or film major working at a Hollywood studio, a communication major learning at an advertising agency in New York, and a music major practicing at Carnegie Hall.

EXTRAORDINARY HPU’s annual economic impact is $415 million

Traditional undergraduate enrollment has grown from 1,450 students to 3,300 students

The number of students living on campus has grown 228% since 2005

The campus footprint has expanded over 150% from 91 acres to 230 acres

HPU is one of only five Tree Campus USA Universities in North Carolina

Over the next 10 years, HPU’s transformation plan will grow from $300 million to $2.1 billion. This is truly extraordinary, not only because of the unprecedented investment, but for the impact it will have on our students. The focus will be on academics, holistic and values-based education, experiential learning and cutting-edge facilities and technology.


THEY’RE REQUIRED U.S. News & World Report ranks High Point University #3 among all regional colleges in the South, up from # 15 just five years ago. HPU is also listed by Forbes and Parade Magazine as one of the top universities in America.




Students get a jump on their holistic education through the President’s Seminar on Life Skills, a unique and innovative course required for freshmen and focusing on fiscal literacy, communication skills and leadership.

When it is time to give back, HPU students rise to the challenge. During the week-long “HPU for Haiti” event, students, faculty and staff came together to raise donations to help the Haitians harmed by the 2010 earthquake. Philanthropy is an important part of the HPU experience as students donate an average of 30,000 hours of service to helping others each year and raise tens of thousands in contributions.

Pakistan to reopen border crossing that NATO uses


Air Force pararescuemen fly over Afghanistan’s Kandahar province on Saturday.

British aid worker killed during rescue KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) – A female British aid worker kidnaped during an ambush last month was killed during a rescue attempt by NATO forces in northeastern Afghanistan, Britain’s foreign secretary said Saturday. The announcement came as four Italian troops were killed and one seriously wounded in an insurgent ambush Saturday in the country’s west. Violence continues unabated throughout much of Afghanistan. The focus of the U.S.-led war, which

entered its 10th year last week, has been on the south, but coalition troops are fighting resilient militants in both the east and north. The aid worker, identified as Linda Norgrove, was killed Friday night by her captors during the operation to free her, Foreign Secretary William Hague said in a statement from London. Norgrove and three Afghan colleagues were kidnapped in eastern Kunar province on Sept. 26 after being ambushed. Police fought a gun-

TEHRAN, Iran – Iran revealed for the first time Saturday that some personnel at the country’s nuclear facilities were lured by promises of money to pass secrets to the West, but that increased security and worker privileges have put a stop to the spying. The stunning acknowledgment by Vice President Ali Akbar Salehi provides the clearest government confirmation that Iran has been fighting espionage at its nuclear facilities.

A way out, at last, for Chile’s miners

US, China trade barbs over climate talks TIANJIN, China (AP) – Modest progress at U.N. climate talks on Saturday was overshadowed by a continuing deadlock between China and the United States, clouding prospects for a major climate conference in Mexico in less than two months’ time. Marred by an atmosphere of mistrust, negotiations have made limited headway as the world’s two largest emitters of greenhouse gases blamed each other for holding up talks.

SAN JOSE MINE, Chile (AP) – Sixty-six agonizing days after their gold and copper mine collapsed above them, 33 miners were offered a way out Saturday as a drill broke through to their underground purgatory. Word of the drill’s success prompted cheers, tears and the ringing of bells by families in the tent camp outside the mine. Some who have kept a vigil since the Aug. 5 disaster ran up a hill where 33 Chilean flags were planted, chanting and shouting with joy as a siren rang throughout “Camp Hope,” confirming the breakthrough.


Relatives of trapped miners, one holding a Chilean flag, accompanied by mining officials react after it was announced that a drill reached the trapped miners.

Iraq’s premier calls for dialogue with rivals BAGHDAD (AP) – Iraq’s prime minister on Saturday urged all rival parties to join in political talks and show the “flexiblity and realism” to make concessions toward ending the country’s seven-month government impasse. The appeal by Nouri al-Maliki – who appears close to achieving his underdog bid to stay in power – comes amid heavy U.S. pressure for his Shi-


ite-led coalition to work out some power-sharing arrangement with the Sunni-backed bloc that placed first in March elections but short of a parliament majority. “All of us, from all affiliations, have to sit together and talk and talk – even if it takes longer – until we reach a meeting point,” the prime minister said, speaking to Sunni tribal leaders in western Baghdad.

The “Plan B” drill won a three-way race against two other drills to carve a hole wide enough for an escape capsule to pull the miners out one by one. While “Plan A” and “Plan C” stalled after repeatedly veering off course, the “Plan B” drill reached the miners at a point 2,047 feet (624 meters) below the surface after pushing through the final 128 feet (39 meters) overnight. The milestone thrilled Chileans, who have come to see the rescue drama as a test of the nation’s character and pride, and eased some anxiety among the miners’ families.

Grab This 1¢ Deal, or It Will Haunt You It’s scary good, this deal. North State is offering a choice of 3 phones for just 1¢. Your choice, just dig up one ghastly penny! But you better hurry. We’re afraid a deal this good won’t last long.

Abbas seeking alternatives if Mideast talks fail SIRTE, Libya (AP) – Diplomats say Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is urging Arab leaders to consider alternatives if peace talks with Israel fail, including pressing the United States to recognize a unilateral declaration of statehood.

Two Arab diplomats who attended a closed session at a summit of Arab League nations in Libya on Saturday said that Abbas asked leaders to consider that idea and, if it were to fail, to take the demand to the U.N.

STRANDED 6 DAYS: Hiker talks about his ordeal. 6F

Managing Editor: Sherrie Dockery (336) 888-3539


Leaders fail to resolve currency dispute WASHINGTON (AP) – Global finance leaders failed Saturday to resolve deep differences that threaten the outbreak of a full-blown currency war. Various nations are seeking to devalue their currencies as a way to

boost exports and jobs during hard economic times. The concern is that such efforts could trigger a repeat of the trade wars that contributed to the Great Depression of the 1930s as country after country raises protectionist bar-

riers to imported goods. The International Monetary Fund wrapped up two days of talks with a communique that pledged to “deepen� its work in the area of currency movements, including conducting studies on the issue.


A woman holds a child as parents gather after a gunman came on to the campus of nearby Kelly Elementary School on Friday in Carlsbad, Calif. Two children suffered arm wounds when a man fired several shots toward a crowd of students, authorities said.

School shooting suspect called uncooperative CARLSBAD, Calif. (AP) – The suspect in a San Diego-area grade school shooting that left two young girls injured was not cooperating with investigators, police said, and the man’s neighbors described strange behavior in the months before the shooting. Brendan L. O’Rourke, 41, was in custody Saturday for investigation of six counts of attempted murder and numerous weapons violations. Carlsbad police Lt. Kelly Cain said O’Rourke was refusing to answer ques-

tions and police did not know what he intended to do or why he opened fire, but they believe he acted alone. “He is not cooperating with the investigation,� Cain said Friday night. “He probably has some mental health issues.� O’Rourke’s neighbors told the San Diego Union-Tribune in a story posted on its website Saturday that he often screamed obscenities and racial epithets alone in his apartment and they frequently called police.

Official: Grand jury probes anti-abortion murder WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – A federal grand jury is investigating whether the murder last year of Dr. George Tiller, one of the nation’s few late-term abortion providers, was connected to a broader case involving radical anti-abortion activists, according to a federal law enforcement official.

The official spoke Friday on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to publicly discuss the investigation. The official said federal civil rights prosecutors were holding grand jury proceedings in Kansas City, looking into whether a broader case surrounded Tiller’s death.

Suicide surge: Schools confront anti-gay bullying



Obama: GOP plan will hurt education WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Offering voters a reason to keep Democrats in power on Capitol Hill, President Barack Obama says Republicans would cut education spending and put the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic future at risk if they had their way. A quality education is paramount, Obama said. He suggested federal spending on education is one area where he would not compromise. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not prepared to do is shortchange our childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s education,â&#x20AC;? he said Saturday in his radio and Internet address.

Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign apologizes for remark SACRAMENTO, Calif. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The campaign of Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jerry Brown has apologized to Republican rival Meg Whitman after an aide referred to her in a recorded voicemail message as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;whoreâ&#x20AC;? because of her attempt to curry favor with a law enforcement union. The comment was caught on a message Brown left for an official at the Los Angeles Police Protective League after the group endorsed Whitman in early September.

NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A spate of teen suicides linked to anti-gay harassment is prompting school officials nationwide to rethink their efforts against bullying â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and in the process, risk entanglement in a bitter ideological debate. The conflict: Gay-rights supporters insist that any effective anti-bullying program must include specific components addressing harassment of gay youth. But religious conservatives condemn that approach as an unnecessary and manipulative tactic to sway young peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s views of homosexuality. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a highly emotional topic. Witness the hate mail â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from the left and right â&#x20AC;&#x201C; directed at Minnesotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Anoka-Hennepin School District while it reviews its anti-bullying strategies in the aftermath of a gay studentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s suicide.

The invective is â&#x20AC;&#x153;some of the worst Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever seen,â&#x20AC;? Superintendent Dennis Carlson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We may invite the Department of Justice to come in and help us mediate this discussion between people who seem to want to go at each other.â&#x20AC;? Carlsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s district in the northern suburbs of Minneapolis is politically diverse, and there are strong, divided views on how to combat bullying. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We believe that the bullying policy should put the emphasis on the wrong actions of the bullies and not the characteristics of the victims,â&#x20AC;? said Chuck Darrell of the conservative Minnesota Family Council. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a wrongheaded, potentially dangerous approach, according to the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which tries to improve the

NYC officials visit gang torture site NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; New York City leaders are expressing outrage over a horrific anti-gay gang attack on three men in the Bronx. Five City Council members visited the block Saturday where a street gang is accused of staging a string of torture assaults inside a vacant apartment. City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, who is gay, passed out leaflets imploring residents to turn in two suspects still at large. Police say the gang went berserk after learning that a 17-yearold recruit was gay. Investigators say the teen was stripped, beaten and sodomized with a plunger handle.

Lindsey Lopp flies through the air as she zips from one platform to another on the Kersey Valley’s new zipline course.

Flying safe Kersey Valley opens zipline with extra safety features BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – Within three months, Tony Wohlgemuth, president of Kersey Valley in High Point, may have raised the standards for ziplines across the country. The Kersey Valley Zipline officially opened to customers about two weeks ago after it was announced in the summer that a zipline would be built on the property, which also houses attractions like Kersey Valley Spookywoods and Maize Adventure. With 18 towers that were constructed for the course and numerous other safety features, Wohlgemuth says it’s above par according to guidelines from the Association for Challenge Course Technology, which sets standards for ziplines and canopy tours. “After working with Guilford County and the N.C. Department of Insurance in Raleigh, we have (exceeded) industry standards,” Wohlgemuth said. “We installed a lot of things to be above the standard.” The zipline is more than 1.5 miles long and takes guests through the trees of both the corn maze and its haunted trail. The full tour takes about three hours to complete, but half-tours also are offered. Some of the safeguards that Wohlgemuth touts are the half-inch thick cable that the zip line is made out of. National standards only require the cable to be three -eighths-inch thick. A lightning protection system also was installed, and pads line the wall on the area of the tower where guests zip in.


Tony Wohlgemuth, owner of Kersey Valley, stands on one of the landing platforms about 20 feet off the ground. The takeoff platform is another story high.




The Kersey Valley Zipline, at 1615 Kersey Valley Road, is open 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. Full tour rates are $69, but group rates for 20 or more are offered. Reservations are required at least 24 hours in advance and can be made by calling 802-1962 or going to All ages are allowed on the zipline. A weight limit between 70 and 250 pounds applies, but each individual will be considered. But other safety features, such as a special training video produced on the farm, also make the attraction unique, he added. Participants must watch the video inside of a building on the farm that is staged with a 1940s aviation theme, and guests are zipped across two towers for practice in case they decide the attraction isn’t for them. “This is a challenge course, so it fits our attractions well,” Wohlgemuth said. “We’re all about adventures on the farm.” Its economic impact in High Point is another factor that Wohlgemuth is proud of. Since its opening, he’s already seen out-of-town and


out-of-state visitors, and he’s expanded his seasonal staff from about 260 to 300. The zipline is being incorporated into the farm’s existing attractions. A Halloween combo package will take guests through the zipline and the Spookywoods trail. Wohlgemuth also said it will be used in the A Kersey Valley Christmas lights attraction, with light displays flat on the ground for zipline users to see from above. But his expansion plans don’t stop there. “I hope to have a barn for weddings and other events, and that will require another whole staff,” he said. | 888-3617

NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Consider the blessings and demands that await a consumer at any supermarket, with its dizzying array of choices to be made. Toothpaste, soda, laundry detergent, â&#x20AC;&#x201C; whatever. Every product comes in countless variations and competing brands. Now take that decision-making burden and endow it with the high moral stakes of conflicting spiritual values. Such has been the hurly-burly of religious observance in America. For four centuries, this has been a land where religious liberty was a notion held sacred, even as the nature of â&#x20AC;&#x153;libertyâ&#x20AC;? was hotly debated. The pursuit of liberty spurred breakthroughs in religious expression. The available options for religious observance were multiplying. All of that is examined by â&#x20AC;&#x153;God in America,â&#x20AC;? a sweeping three-night, six-hour survey of roughand-tumble competition in what the series calls the religious marketplace.

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


Where will we be heading after Nov. 2 election? Nov. 2 is a critical date that will determine where we go as a nation. Will it be off a cliff because of the outrageous spending, over-reaching regulations and arrogance of those elected officials who passed the health care bill without even reading it? Our nation is being force-fed policies that are destructive to our freedom and liberty. The wolves in sheep’s clothing have entered the political atmosphere and are now unmasked. They also have entered the fray this month at the One Nation Event in Washington, D.C., which was supported by over 400 organizations including the Democratic Socialist Party and the Communist Party USA. This event was supported by the president as well. Would you be there if you knew that? Do we surround our-



selves with like-minded people or do we not? President Bush did go overboard on spending and left $1.4 trillion to pass on, (trillion was TARP program) but remember no president or Congress can pass laws or bills without the other agreeing. The majority in Congress was Democrat then and had been since 2006. No one is blameless! I learn from the past and change so as to avoid that error again. President Obama in 18 months has doubled the amount Bush generated. Now! who’s responsible? All of them! We the people demand that when our representatives go to Washington that they are not to ask themselves

how much can I get, when can I get it and how soon. They need to ask themselves how this vote will affect not just my state but the nation as a whole and does it adhere to the Constitution. We need to take individual responsibility for the consequences of our actions. If we don’t learn from history we are bound to repeat it. Are we learning? Vote Nov 2. GREG RINEHART Kernersville

Candidates offer varied views of arts



Town Council Mayor Scott Morris, 230 W. Salisbury Ave. (PO Box 1458), Denton 27239; 859-2888 h, 7984090 w


t’s fairly easy to cite major issues in this fall’s campaigns for mayor and City Council in High Point. Jobs, the budget, infrastructure, the economy, helping to attract and maintain business, quality of life, logistics, and the city’s roles with High Point University and High Point Market. One lying just below the radar – until now – as a campaign issue is what and how much to do to give the arts a much-needed boost in High Point. The High Point Enterprise, in an attempt to gauge opinions on arts issues, mailed surveys to the three mayoral and 20 candidates for City Council. Reporter Vicki Knopfler interviewed the two mayoral candidates who responded and three (selected at random) of the 11 candidates for Council who responded in an attempt to gauge where they were on the arts issue. A six-story, five-day series that began today revealed responses were all over the lot: • Keeping arts groups alive (especially in the current economy) must be a priority. • While both consider themselves supporters of the arts and agree the city should continue current financial support for arts groups, one mayoral candidate is opposed to direct city funding to artists, the other favors public ownership of an arts center, which the arts groups could use. • Others concerns rising to the top are increasing emphasis on arts and culture, perhaps as part of the City Project efforts, not increasing arts funding in these difficult economic times, what role the city should play in public-private partnerships, the image the current state of the arts in High Point projects to “outsiders” considering relocation to the community and the level of involvement the city should have ongoing in the arts and private enterprise. We suggest reading survey results and determining in your own minds where each candidate falls as far as support for the arts is concerned and mulling those whom are the best fit with your thoughts. We take a dim view of supporting singleissue candidates and hope you do, too, but we suggest that as you decipher candidates’ thinking on the arts, you may detect patterns that could be applied to all those other issues listed above. This election is the most important the community has faced in decades and we appreciate the involvement of so many candidates, something that has been lacking in local politics for many years. That is why it is important for all of us to gather as much information about candidates as we can and making informed decisions on for whom we’re going to vote. This just-below-the-surface issue is a good starting point for that exercise.



The High Point Enterprise is committed to this community ... and always will serve it by being an intensely local newspaper of excellent quality every day.

Rack cards become mini-billboards all over town


ewspapers have been using cards on the bottom half of the racks for decades, promoting something special in the papers to spur single-copy sales. Rack cards work well: The circulation department sees spikes in single-copy sales when attention is called to special editions (“High Point Sesquicentennial Edition,” “celebrating 125 years,” “Hometowns 2010: Mysteries & Scandals” and “Fall Sports,” for examples) in The High Point Enterprise. As most of you know, the business model for newspapers has been changing for most of the 21st century, offering websites, e-papers, twitter and various other “platforms” in addition to the traditional print-on-paper product to capture more advertising revenue. One of those platforms that the Enterprise began using Oct. 1 was the rack card. “BECKY SMOTHERS for MAYOR” read the white type on blue background for rack cards that appeared on some 260 racks throughout High Point. Response was immediate. The first call came into the Enterprise circulation department shortly after the sun came up that Friday. The caller wanted to know if the newspaper was endorsing Smothers in that fashion. Daniel Pittman, Enterprise circulation director, and his staff of customer-service representatives were quick to point out the smaller print “Paid for by Smothers for Mayor Committee” across the bottom of the card. The advertising package Smothers purchased from the Enterprise will have those cards in the racks for 30 days – through the Saturday before the Nov. 2 election. Lynn Wagner, Enterprise advertising director, says rack card advertising “is a localized high-visibility mini-billboard that delivers both a shotgun (reaching many) and rifle (individual focus) approach that, because it is associated with the Enterprise, is a credible source for advertising.” Now, let’s get one thing straight. The Enterprise hasn’t endorsed any candidate for any position in next month’s election. The newspaper has been providing “Meet the Candidates” profiles of area political hopefuls for several weeks and will continue to provide profiles and cover forums and campaigns until Election Day. But interviews with candidates for mayor, City Council and local legislative races didn’t begin until last week, so it will be at least a week before the Enterprise editorial board even will begin to decide whom to endorse for any office, let alone the mayor’s race.

This column isn’t about endorsements. It’s about one more way the Enterprise can serve you if you are in business (retail or otherwise), if you are a member of a group that wants to get the word out about a sale or special event, OPINION if you want to see your name, face, product, etc., on mini-billTom boards (17 inches wide and 111⁄4 Blount inches deep) all over town or all ■■■ across the circulation area that extends into four counties. And this column also is about an election separate from those races that most likely will be settled Nov. 2. It’s about what comic should be chosen to replace Peanuts in the event the Enterprise is not able to “come to mutually agreeable terms” with Peanuts Worldwide, the company that now is in control of the strip’s distribution. The choices: Mutts, Pearls before Swine, Jump Start and Dustin, although those sending “votes” by e-mail, fax or regular mail can suggest others (as several already have with “Get Fuzzy,” “ Pickles” and “Heart of the City.” Phyllis Melton of Thomasville asked, “Have you heard about a strip called ‘Mallard Filmore’? I’ve heard it is funny and an answer to ‘Doonesbury’ by being conservative.” Meanwhile, High Point’s Betty Metcalfe asks, “With all the unhappiness and unrest in the world today, how can Lisa Klem Wilson take away one of the few bright sports in our day – Peanuts? ... I believe Mr. Schulz would be spinning in his grave for such a hateful act.” Whoa, Betty. Lisa Klem Wilson merely was the messenger. The folks at United Features Syndicate had any control over distribution of the Peanuts strip taken away from them when E.W. Scripps Co., United’s parent, sold the Peanuts property. United apparently couldn’t or wouldn’t pay a higher price, which it would have had to pass along to the newspapers that were subscribing to Peanuts (as the Enterprise was) that new owner Peanuts Worldwide was asking. Editors at most, if not all, newspapers will tell you that now is not the time for syndicates to be charging outrageous prices for any feature, even Peanuts. Budgets just won’t allow it and, unlike the federal and state governments, a business can’t spend money it doesn’t have. Regardless, remember to vote in both elections.

tate government is not functioning efficiently, is costing more than current revenues can support and a growing number feel it is out of control. With the exception of the second Hunt administration, Gov. Bev Perdue came into office with more state government experience than anyone we’ve elected since Kerr Scott. She is uniquely qualified to lead change; however Perdue’s first 20 months in office have necessarily focused on a severe recession, resulting state budget problems and one crisis after another in government agencies. It is time for Perdue to employ her considerable experience to reform government to more accurately reflect today’s North Carolina. Common sense dictates every generation should review and change our social contract with government. The last significant reform in state government occurred more than 30 years ago, and

during the interval we have added at least two executive level departments, created and expanded many state programs, MY SPIN seen a five-fold increase in the Tom state budget and Campbell added thousands ■■■ of public sector employees. We are a different North Carolina than we were 30 years ago due to demographic and geographic population shifts, a change from manufacturing to a more service-based economy and differing needs of our populous. Last year, Perdue appointed a task force to search for ways to improve government efficiency and save money while providing essential services to our citizens. Last week, she announced plans to reveal her initiatives for reorganization shortly after the November elections, promising her

proposals would consolidate some agencies, eliminate others and sell assets that would save money. Our immediate reaction was that the process should have been more open to public input and guidance, but we strongly suspect the mere threat of a program or agency cut or elimination would result in a major pushback and lobbying effort to negate any change. The governor probably decided it best to view reorganization in its entirety rather than subjecting it to death by a thousand cuts. We do question both the timing of Perdue’s announcement and the release of the proposals. With elections just days away, what was the benefit of teasing the subject without releasing any details? Polls show the Democratic Party at risk of losing control of one or both houses of the Legislature. Rolling out a plan to reform and reorganize state government several weeks before the election

could potentially have raised the job approval rating for the governor while also providing a big boost for Democratic legislators. Since any significant structural changes in government will require legislative cooperation and action, it is problematic to speculate how difficult a government overhaul might be with Republicans controlling one or both houses while the governor is a Democrat. Perdue has now raised expectations to a level where anything less than a meaningful and well-conceived reorganization that provides significant changes and resultant savings might be viewed poorly. We commend her for undertaking the task and are eager to see her proposals.

The wordsmith

Continuing the tradition with a tribute to James J. Kilpatrick “ ‘Speak the speech, I pray you,’ said Hamlet to his Players, ‘as I pronounced it to you, trippingly on the tongue ... ‘The melancholy Dane thus provided a text for today’s reflections on the writing art. The best writing subtly responds to the natural rhythms all around us. Often the addition or deletion of a single syllable will lift a sentence from the pedestrian to the pleasing. The tricks of cadence can be irkingly overdone, but they also can be remarkably effective.’ ” BY BILL WARD


he above quote from James J. Kilpatrick is typical of how he often chose words for writing and casting sentences. He relied as much on how a phrase sounded and how smoothly we could read it as he did on the “rules” of grammar. Kilpatrick, one of the great grammarians of our time, died Aug. 15, at the age of 89. He had spent his life as a wordsmith, serving many years as the editor of the Richmond News Leader. He had been a TV commentator as well as a columnist, writing “A Conservative View” and “The Writers Art.” I followed the latter faithfully and kept many of those columns. Kilpatrick, often at the request of readers, took on words and challenged their proper use or whether they should be used at all. Here I will borrow from one of his columns from the Charlotte Observer (Aug. 21, 2004) and will continue to do so throughout this column. A reader wanted to abolish “whom” and “whomever.” Grammarian Richard Grant White observed in 1870 that “whom” was “visibly disappearing.” In “The American Language” (1936), H.L. Mencken echoed that “whom” was “fast vanishing.” In 1980, critic Anthony Burgess reported that “whom” was “dying out in England.”



But nothing is quite so simple. Writers have a chronic problem with “whom” and “whomever.” Business Week asks, “Who can you trust?” In Forbes magazine, an ad writer for IBM asks, “Who do you need?” Kilpatrick responded: Both questions needed an old fashioned “whom.” A book reviewer praises Justice Sandra Day O’Connor’s assessment of “those justices whom she believes helped most significantly to shape the court’s history.” Let’s try “who she believes.” Kilpatrick held his Court of Peeves, Crotchets & Irks often in his column. One of my many pet peeves is whether people lay or lie, speaking of assuming a reclining position. A few months ago, a Salisbury Post writer described how a man who had been shot was laying across the threshold of a door in his home. Could the victim have died from laying instead of lying? A WBTV news anchor reported recently that a man had been shot and was laying in the middle of a Charlotte street. An easy way to remember the difference is that chickens lay; people lie – in more ways than one. She was lying on the examination table. R.W. Burchfield in “Fowler’s Modern English Usage,” writes “lay is only dialectal or an illiterate substitute for lie. Its identity of form with the past tense of lie … largely accounts for the confusion. … Nowadays confusion of the two is taken to be certain evidence of imperfect education.” Two other words that cause some writers confusion are “farther” and “further.” Some say it doesn’t matter which you use. So to answer that, I’ll fall back on my sixth-grade English teacher. If you are referring to any form of distance,

stated or implied, use “farther.” Burchfield also writes that farther/farthest are chiefly used to state physical distance. For example: Let’s take that one step farther. The bridge is just a little farther down the road. I am too tired to go any farther. That could not be farther from the truth. On the other hand, “further/furthest” means in addition to. I have nothing further to contribute. We want to further the cause of education. Academic research has shown that further is used about 90 percent in grammatical construction, when it should be just the opposite. Finally, Kilpatrick’s column from March, 27, 2004, dealt with whether something is historic or historical. The Supreme Court’s decision in Brown v. Board of Education was an historic decision. Charleston is the South’s most historic city. An historical correlation exists between falling interest rates and a rising stock market. Salisbury has many historic places to visit. Here is a useful test: Try “famous” and see how it works. If something is famous, choose “historic.” If it references a point in time, use historical. You drag a heavy object across the ground. Would you say that you dragged the object or that you drug it? According to “Webster’s New World College Dictionary, Fourth Edition;” drag (dragged, dragging) means to pull or draw with force or effort, esp. along the ground. “Drug” has nothing to do with having moved an object. As defined by Webster’s, a drug is any substance used as a medicine or as an ingredient in a medicine. And perhaps later, we can discuss words to end a sentence with.

Court: Suspended students can go unschooled RALEIGH (AP) – North Carolina’s constitution guarantees children an opportunity for a basic education, but doesn’t require alternative schooling for students suspended for misbehavior, the state Supreme Court ruled Friday.



Frank Rothrock THOMASVILLE – Mr. Frank Lee Rothrock, 82, a life long resident of Davidson County, died Friday, October 8, 2010 at Forsyth Medical Center. He was born on October 16, 1927 in Davidson County to Robert Lee Rothrock and Bessie Myers Rothrock. He was a builder and owned The Rothrock Shop, where he loved and served his customers for 30+ years. He was a US Army veteran and a member of the Optimist Club. He loved the Lord Jesus Christ and was a member of Fair Grove United Methodist Church. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his sister, Mildred Lambeth, and a nephew, Shuford Lambeth. Surviving is his wife Mickie Rothrock of Archdale; two daughters, Sarah Wilson and Tammy Rothrock, both of Archdale; two nephews, David Lambeth and wife Linda and Dale Lambeth and wife Rhonda, all of Thomasville; double first cousin, Blanche Fritts of Thomasville; and two special loving caregivers, Aileen Bailey and Sunshine Eseat. The daughters wish to express sincere gratitude to the staff, residents, and friends at Lexington Health Care Center for their compassion and care during his stay. A funeral service will be held on Monday, October 11, 2010 at 11:00 AM at Fair Grove UMC with Rev. David C. Noyes and Jane Baity, Lay Leader officiating. Interment will follow in the church cemetery.

Memorials may be directed to Fair Grove UMC, 138 Fair Grove Church Rd. Thomasville, NC 27360. On-line condolences may be sent to

Harvey Blackwelder Sr. LEXINGTON – Harvey Chancey Blackwelder Sr. of Mendota Avenue died Oct. 9, 2010. Funeral will be held at 2 p.m. Tuesday at Second Presbyterian Church. Piedmont Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.

While local school boards are required by state law to establish at least one alternative learning program for students serving long-term suspensions, school administrators are not required to accommodate every suspended student,

the court ruled. “Because the safety and educational interests of all students receiving alternative education must be protected, students who exhibit violent behavior, threaten staff or other students, substantially disrupt the learning process, or

otherwise engage in serious misconduct may be denied access,” Justice Mark Martin wrote for the court. The case started with a fistfight outside a rural high school in January 2008 and attracted the attention of groups ranging

from civil rights advocates to school administrators to education groups from Alabama to Chicago. Viktoria King and Jessica Hardy were sophomore students at Southside High School in Chocowinity when a melee led to sheriff’s

deputies handcuffing and briefly arresting a dozen students. The two girls were suspended from school for the rest of the semester and told they could not attend Beaufort County’s alternative school for troubled students.

College savings Socking away money for education remains family priority DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Parents remain determined to save money for college even in the tough economy, but they’re not always choosing the methods that give them the best bang for their buck. The nation’s leading college lender Sallie Mae released Tuesday its second annual study of college students and parents conducted by Gallup Inc. It shows 60 percent of parents have saved money for their child’s college education, about the same as a year ago. However, it is surprising that nearly a quarter of all college savings has been set aside in retirement accounts including 401(k)s or individual retirement accounts, said Sarah Ducich, senior

vice president for public policy at Sallie Mae. The typical family saving for college has amassed an average of $28,102 and is projected to have saved $48,367 by the time their child reaches age 18. The problem with relying on retirement accounts is that when money is withdrawn before age 59 1/2, the accountholder must pay taxes on the funds as well as a 10 percent penalty. As an alternative, some families are choosing to take out a loan against a 401(k) account. This is also problematic because it removes a portion of the retirement fund, reducing the potential for growth. Also there’s the possibility that the loan will need to be repaid quickly if the

accountholder changes jobs. Whether an outright withdrawal or a loan, either way, parents are shortchanging their retirement savings potential, Ducich said. An additional disadvantage to using the 401(k) for college savings is that the money withdrawn this year counts as income for the parents. This means that when the family applies for financial aid the next year, that amount will be included in income, reducing potential aid. Of course not all savings is held in retirement accounts. About 21 percent of money set aside for college is in investments and 14 percent sits in general savings accounts, which return very little interest. About 12 percent is held in dedicated college savings 529 accounts. A few responses in the 2010 study show signs that economic pressures have affected how fami-

lies are setting their savings goals. About 72 percent of parents say they expect to pay half or more of their child’s education costs, but that is down from 79 percent a year ago. Also, fewer parents intend to pay most of the cost with 27 percent saying that this year, compared with 33 percent in 2009. That’s one more indicator that the recession has forced people to make decisions about their money, said Bill Diggins, a senior consultant at Gallup Inc., who helped conduct this year’s survey. Economic confidence has dropped over the last couple of years and discretionary spending has gone down and continues to fall. Savings rates however, have increased. Diggins said Gallup research indicates about two-thirds of those who are saving more say it’s a permanent change. “We’re finding people



will pay for and sacrifice for things they value,” Diggins said. “It’s clear from these studies that they continue to place a high priority on college for their kids.” The study illustrates that point with 21 percent of parents saying college savings is their most important savings goal, up from 14 percent in 2009. Saving for retirement fell to 22 percent as the most important savings priority from 27 percent. About 38 percent of families said they are saving the same this year as last year and 34 percent said they are saving less. About 28 percent boosted their savings. The study also shows that families understand the need to start early. The average age when parents began a college account is about 3 years old. It’s important now to educate parents on the most efficient ways to save, Ducich said.

Store owner stumbles into success BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT - You’d think a lady who owns a shop that specializes in pocketbooks and jewelry would love, well, pocketbooks and jewelry. But Missy Pendry, owner of PB&J in Archdale, has carried the same purse for two years. “The thing is, I’m not a pocketbook and jewelry person,” Pendry said with a laugh. “I wear the same jewelry every day. I was just looking for something that would allow me to stay at home with my kids.” A mother of three, Pendry will tell you that her children come first in her life. She had four miscarriages before her first child was born eight years ago. So when her first son, Travis, was born, Pendry said she wanted to find a way to make money while staying at home to raise her child. “After that (the miscarriages) and after I had kids, I knew I couldn’t go back to work and leave them,” she said.” A friend suggested that she try selling some general merchandise from her home, such as gift items. Before Pendry knew it, she had built up an inventory of dozens of purses and jewelry lines and had a growing mailing list of clients. “Whenever someone

was looking for a gift, they would come to me to ask for this or that,” she said. “It got so big that my husband was ready to kick me out of the basement.” The inventory became so massive that Pendry actually opened her store on Bonnie Place in Archdale in October 2006 to end the business. She hoped to clear her inventory by Christmas, then close shop. But

the response that she received from shoppers changed her plans. “It’s funny because I opened to close,” she said. “But it went so well that I knew I had to keep going.” PB&J (pocketbooks and jewelry) moved to its current space, 101K Bonnie Place, soon after, and has continued to grow. Pendry said year-to-year sales have improved every year. The store now offers more than 300 types of purses, multiple jew-

elry lines and other gift items, such as stationary sets, Webkinz and candles. It’s an unheard form of accidental success — especially in a recession. But the Archdale native attributes the growth of her business to strong roots in the community (she’s a native of Archdale), the support of her family, her faith and the products that the store carries. “We have people asking us for new items


all the time,” she said. “That’s what is fun about this, I can add whatever I want.” Still, no matter how much success she finds in the store, Pendry said her family is still her priority. “I’m still focused on my kids,” she said. “So I just focus on what comes first and go day by day. It gets crazy sometimes, but this has all been a huge blessing for me.” | 888-3617

NEW YORK (AP) — Frito-Lay hopes to quiet complaints about its noisy SunChips bags by switching out the biodegradable bags for the old packaging on most flavors. The company is switching back to original packaging, which is made of a type of plastic, for five of the six varieties of the chips. It will keep the biodegradable and recyclable bags for its sixth variety, its original plain flavor. That’s its second best-selling, after Harvest Cheddar. The snack maker said the switch started in the middle of September and should be complete by middle to late October. The bags were launched in April 2009 with a big marketing effort to play up their compostability because they’re made from plants and not plastic. But that which makes them compostable also makes them loud. The bags have a different molecular structure from the original packaging, so people complained about the noise. Groups on Facebook abound with names such as “I wanted SunChips but my roommate was sleeping...” and and “Nothing is louder than a SunChips bag.”

perform a cost/benefit analysis. Any non-performing programs should be eliminated. All regulations imposed in the last 10 years should be compared with other states and a cost/benefit analysis performed.

Q: What steps can legislators take to get the state out of its rut of confronting budget shortfalls before the start of each fiscal year or legislative session?

Q: Government agencies traditionally were able to offset lower salaries to workers who could make more in the private sector through job security and stability. What should the state do to help retain quality employees at a time of budgetary cutbacks and layoffs?

A: All estimated revenue data is received in advance. A study commission should be formed to address the deficit before each budget cycle. It is estimated the deficit for 2011-12 is over $3 billion. It is too late at this time to appoint a study commission; therefore the legislators will have to address cuts in order to balance the budget. The general assembly should evaluate every program initiated in the last 10 years for effectiveness and

of $44,158.00 compared to a private sector wage of $39,350.00. In some instances, private sector workers earn, on average, one third less than their state counterparts. In the present economic climate with businesses cutting salaries and downsizing, we need to be more concerned with retaining and creating private sector jobs. Every additional government job results in at least one job being lost in the private sector. Q: If elected, what would be your top legislative priorities?

A: North Carolina private sector workers earn lower wages than their state governmental counterparts. The average salary increase for state employees from 2000-09 was 34.5% compared to an increase of 27.0% for private sector employees. In 2009, state government workers earned an average wage

RANDOLPH COUNTY – Emily Thomas Coltrane is seeking a seat on the Randolph County Board of Education. She has worked for the Department of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention as a Coltrane juvenile court counselor for 13 years and for the last year has worked as a juvenile court counselor supervisor. She holds a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from Pfeiffer University and is a member of the Randolph

County Republican Women and Seagrove Civitans. She volunteers for Relay For Life and Operation Red Sleigh and serves as an adviser to the Randolph County Juvenile Crime Prevention Council and a trainer for Juvenile Law and the North Carolina General Statutes for various law enforcement agencies and school officials. She also serves on a collaborative committee to reduce gang activity in the community and schools as well as facilitate and coordinate services with school staff for at-risk and adjudicated students. She has served on an athletic booster club and as a board member for Best Friends of

Randolph County and a past advisory board member for a school PTO. She was endorsed by the Randolph County Chapter of the North Carolina Association of Educators in 2008. She has one daughter who attends Randolph County Schools. Q: Public school systems traditionally were able to offset lower salaries to workers who could make more in the private sector through job security and stability. What should the school system do to help retain quality employees at a time of budgetary cutbacks and layoffs? A: The school board must avoid impacting the classroom, laying off or cutting teachers and assistants at all


costs. Only as a last resort should any of the preceding even be considered. Randolph County Schools needs to begin its budget process by scraping the old budget and starting fresh and anew. By analyzing every program and budgetary item and their individual effectiveness, we will see where cuts have to be made. Teachers are at the very core of and are vital to progress. One consideration may be to write grants to offset of any budgetary problems that directly impact the classroom.

Diversity is a great thing; but spending huge amounts of money to achieve diversity in a school is wasteful. School systems are charged with the safety and education of students, first and foremost. Anything else is secondary. Exceptional children should also be served in their school district and not transported across school district boundaries.

Another concern is scheduling the core subjects such math, language arts, science and social studies in the morning where students are fresh and ready to learn. Scheduling core classes in the afternoon after electives is where students are less likely to be focused. The school system needs to collaborate with local businesses to keep students in school and learn skills for entering the work force. This could help reduced the probability of them dropping out of school and using governmental agencies for support. Schedules to be made to fit the student’s needs not one size fits all.

Older boss discriminates against peer BY MILDRED L. CULP WORKWISE FEATURES

“At age 48,” a reader writes, “I’m a manager feeling age discrimination for the first time – and I’m astonished that it’s coming from someone close in age. Is this unusual? How can a professional address the issue?” Nancy (not her real name) was passed over for the social media team by a boss in his late 40s or early 50s and called a “digital immigrant ... (not of) the generation that lives and breathes this stuff.” Her boss even asked if she uses social media. She does, certain that he didn’t pose the same question to the younger team members. From a legal standpoint, workers enter a protected class at age 40. Peter Cappelli and Bill Novelli, authors of the new “Managing the Older Worker” (Harvard Business School, $29.95), write that one survey of people ages 45 to 71 found that 67 percent “had seen or experienced age discrimination in the workplace.” They also footnote a book published in 1998 indicating “that the group most likely to hold negative attitudes toward older adults is actually other older workers themselves.” Cappelli believes that some older workers feel pressured “to conform to ‘youthful’ norms.” He mentions that changing discriminatory behaviors based on age, race or sex is much easier than chang-


“Managing the Older Worker,” a new book by Peter Cappelli (pictured) and Bill Novelli, provides evidence that age discrimination against peers reaches back at least to 1998. ing attitudes. Typically, behavioral change comes first. Tammy Marzigliano, partner at the New York City law firm Outten & Golden LLP., represents plaintiffs only. She mentions that age discrimination “does happen a lot” and that if all of Nancy’s colleagues were older workers, Nancy wouldn’t have a case. But she might here.

REGAINING CONTROL When caught in a situation

like this, “you may feel out of control,” says addiction psychiatrist Harold Urschel, chief medical strategist at EnterHealth LLC., in Dallas. “Anger and frustration, along with feeling that the situation isn’t fair, can cause quite a bit of depression and anxiety.” Job performance often slides, too, according to “Managing the Older Worker,” because of increased stress levels. The book advocates different ways for managers to do their

jobs, including “the way they present expectations and conduct performance reviews.” It also maintains that older workers will need “skills and a willingness to accept a new order of things.” Meanwhile, people like Nancy want to be their full professional selves. Nancy is wise to fear being perceived as irrelevant as she’s denied opportunities when she has 20 more working years to go. What are the options? Marzigliano, the attorney, ad-

vises you not to “allow perception to become the reality. Be qualified or become qualified. Be more boisterous than before when you speak the language. You can say, ‘I know Excel, social networking, LinkedIn, Facebook. I can do this work. I don’t know what you’re doing, Jim, but I know this stuff.’ Call (the person) on it, which gives you protection against retaliation. Sometimes you have to say ‘discrimination.’ That makes it a lot harder to fire you.” Urschel, the psychiatrist, advises you to “look at the demographics of your customers. If they’re very young, go to employees in that area and learn new communication styles, which will allow them to feel comfortable with you. Without knowing it, you might be making one social faux pas after another, when you’re just being a normal 48-year-old.” Finally, make the most of your relationships. Engage with and take a sincere interest in younger workers as much as possible. Discuss issues they find compelling. Listen to problems for which life experience might offer some solutions. Help them on projects so that when a plum comes up, the teaming is so sincere and so deep that younger workers ask the boss to bring you on board, too. DR. MILDRED L.

If Tears Could Build a Stairway If tears could build a stairway And memories were a lane We would walk right up to Heaven, And bring you back again. No farewell words were Spoken, No time to say Goodbye, You were gone Before we knew it, And only God knows why Our hearts still ache in Sadness, And secret tears still flow, What it really meant to Lose you, No one can ever know. But now we know you want us To mourn for you no more To remember all the happy Times, Life still has much more in store Since you'll never be forgotten We pledge to you today A hallowed place within our Hearts, Is where you'll always stay

12 FOR KYLE: Busch speeds to 12th Nationwide Series win of season. 3D Sports Editor: Mark McKinney (336) 888-3556

SHOWDOWN LOOMS: Ragsdale gears for first-place battle with NW Guilford. 2D

UNC tames Tigers CHAPEL HILL (AP) – Johnny White rushed for two touchdowns and gained 179 total yards, and North Carolina held on to beat Clemson 21-16 on Saturday for its third straight victory. White caught six passes for 90 yards, finished with 89 yards rushing and scored on runs of 4 and 26 yards. T.J. Yates was 18-for-34 for 164 yards with a 9-yard touchdown pass to Jheranie Boyd for the Tar Heels (3-2, 1-1 ACC). They coaxed just enough production out of the offense to beat the Tigers for the first time since 2001. Kyle Parker’s 74-yard TD pass to Jaron Brown with 5:31 left pulled the Tigers (23, 0-2) within five, but they couldn’t convert the twopoint attempt and didn’t get the ball back until only 13 seconds remained. Parker then threw three deep passes, all incompletions. He finished 21-for-38 for 214 yards for the Tigers, who were held to a seasonlow 305 total yards and lost their third straight. The Tar Heels – who finished with 255 total yards and were held to 15 total yards in the third quarter – certainly needed both of White’s scoring runs. Two plays after his 12-yard catch from Yates on fourth-and-4, White bounced off a series of tacklers on his way to the end zone. That 26-yard run extended the lead to 21-10 with 6:53 to play. Jamie Harper pulled the Tigers to 14-10 with a 10yard touchdown run with 51⁄2 minutes left in the third.

N.C. State’s Dontae Johnson (25) blocks a punt by Boston College’s Ryan Quigley (46), which was recovered in the end zone for a touchdown during the first half of Saturday’s game at Carter-Finley Stadium in Raleigh. The Wolfpack beat the Eagles 44-17.

Wilson, Wolfpack roll RALEIGH (AP) – N.C. State proved it can both shake off a disappointing loss and finally beat Tom O’Brien’s former program. Russell Wilson threw for 328 yards and three touchdowns to help the Wolfpack beat Boston College 44-17 on Saturday, giving O’Brien his first win against the team he led for a decade. Owen Spencer, Darrell Davis and Jarvis Williams had TD catches for the Wolfpack (5-1, 2-1 Atlantic Coast Conference), who also got touchdowns from the defense and special teams to dominate the Eagles (2-3, 0-2). It was the first time the Wolfpack had scored


CHARLOTTE – With both offenses missing key players, defenses may hold the key as Julius Peppers returns to Bank of America Stadium with the Chicago Bears as an opponent of the Carolina Panthers today. Carolina, seeking its first win in five games, will be hoping to find a competent wide receiver while without the services of Steve Smith, who has 13 of the 24 receptions by the Panthers’ wideouts this season. David Gettis (seven catches) and Brandon Lafell (four grabs) expect to start. The other wide receivers available are David Clowney, a fourth-year player claimed on waivers from the New York Jets, and rookie Armanti Edwards, who has been inactive

touchdowns in all three phases since a win against Texas Tech six years ago, and allowed the program to match its win total for all of last season. Quite a way to regroup from last week’s home loss to Virginia Tech. Last week, the Wolfpack – carrying the program’s first national ranking in seven years – led Virginia Tech 17-0 at home before the Hokies rallied for a 41-30 win that drained some of the buzz that had built around Carter-Finley Stadium. But winning in such dominating fashion probably restored any shaken confidence for a team hoping to stay in contention in

the ACC’s Atlantic Division. “You definitely think about (the Virginia Tech loss),” Wilson said. “You don’t want to have that feeling ever again.” Since O’Brien took over here before the 2007 season, Boston College had won all three meetings and scored at least 37 points each time, including a 52-20 rout last season in which Montel Harris set school records with 264 yards rushing and five touchdowns. This year, Harris ran for 53 yards on 14 carries as the Eagles managed just 272 yards – with 67 of those coming on a meaningless touchdown pass with about 6 minutes left.



NFC East looks to get untracked. 5D for the first four games. Clowney was acquired after Dwayne Jarrett was cut in the wake of a DUI arrest this week. The wide receiver overhaul comes after the Panthers showed some life offensively in a 16-14 loss to New Orleans last Sunday. The Panthers will also be trying to cut down on turnovers after giving up 16 so far. The Bears, who actively try to strip the ball from runners, have forced eight fumbles and four interceptions. “We didn’t do too well the first three weeks of the season,” Panthers coach John Fox said. “We played a very turnover-minded defense a week ago, and, offensively,

we eliminated turnovers. It will be that same emphasis this week.” Despite the reputation of Peppers as a fierce pass rusher, the Bears have four sacks – the same number as the Panthers. “I’m seeing our team improving in all three phases,” Fox said. “Each week is a new challenge, new matchups, and the Chicago Bears present some of those issues.” Chicago will be without quarterback Jay Cutler, who is being held out because of a concussion suffered as part of the battering administered by the New York Giants on Sunday night. Todd Collins, a journeyman backup in his 16th season, replaced Cutler until suffering a neck stinger and will get his 21st start today. Collins has played in just 48 games. The majority of his starts (13) came with Buffalo in 1997, but he led Washington to the playoffs

with three wins as a starter in relief of Jason Campbell in 2007. “It’s definitely better to have a week of preparation,” Collins said. “It’s still your job to go in and perform when you don’t get any work, but it’s not ideal. Hopefully this will give me some more preparation time.” Collins has thrown for 4,515 yards with 22 touchdowns and 20 interceptions and a passer rating of 74.9. “I‘ve seen him a few times over the years, not necessarily with their team,” Fox said this week. “He’s a veteran guy, been around the game a long time, knows how to play the position. Whoever they put at quarterback, they’re going to run their system and play within what they do. That’s how we view it.” | 888-3519





Panthers, Bears hope to click on offense


21 16

oday could be a great day to be an NFL pass rusher in Charlotte. The winless Carolina Panthers play host to the 3-1 Chicago Bears this afternoon (1 p.m., WGHP, Ch. 8). Look for both defenses to take dead aim at the opposing signal-caller. The Bears enter without a banged up Jay Cutler calling the shots. Cutler was sacked nine times in the first half of last week’s loss to the Nw York Giants. Cutler sat out the second half with concussion-like symptoms. Cutler’s replacement, Todd Collins, was sacked only once but hammered many times. He suffered a neck sprain, but played through the pain.

Expect the Panthers to bring plenty of heat against Collins. Former Panther Julius Peppers has to be thrilled at the chance to face rookie quarterback Jimmy Clausen. Clausen has looked good at times in his first two career starts, but he remains a rookie in a league that feasts on first-year QBs. The Monsters of the Midway scare everyone, from future Hall of Famers on down the line. Carolina’s offensive line hardly inspires confidence, having allowed 12 sacks and a ton of pressure on Clausen and former starter Matt Moore. As for the Bears, they’ve surrendered an astonishing 18 sacks through four games.

Chicago QBs may want to consider joining the witness protection program, because their offensive line sure isn’t protecting anyone. This figures to be an entertaining clash. It may be the Panthers’ best shot at a victory for a while. After next week’s bye, the Panthers are home against a hungry San Francisco squad, at vastly improved St. Louis, home to New Orleans and at Tampa Bay. Things really get tough from there. So good luck to the Panthers – and to both quarterbacks – today at Bank of America Stadium.

Bison face tougher road now HIGH POINT – The large Homecoming crowd at Simeon Stadium on Friday night roared its approval as Lashuran Monk weaved his way toward the end zone on a game-changing return. Moments after Northwest Guilford grabbed a 17-14 lead, Monk returned the kickoff 77 yards to set up the High Point Central offense just 20 yards away from the end zone. A mere 20 seconds ran off the clock before Central QB Drew Adams found his way past the goal line, with Austin Miller’s PAT making it 21-17 with just 4:07 left to play. “At that particular point in time I thought we had control of the game,” Bison coach Wayne Jones offered. “I thought we would stop them. It’s just one of those things. It’s football.” It was sad football for the Bison, who watched Northwest march on a second impressive drive and score with just 24 seconds to go for a 24-21 victory. The final drive included plenty of drama. Brian Primus recorded a huge sack for Central – until the 14yard loss was negated one play later by a 34-yard screen pass from Matthew Pawlowski to Dalton Dillon. Completions to wide-open receivers brought the ball into the red zone before one of Central’s defenders knocked a Northwest player into the twilight zone. Pawlowski sent a short pass into the left flat to Reid Baxter, whose 74-yard run in the first quarter led to a Vikings field goal. This time, he managed all of two steps before Jacorey Davis delivered a fearsome blow that brought the crowd to its feet and

left Baxter on the ground. Baxter would jog off the field a minute later, but Central’s defense couldn’t make anything out of that huge hit. A sack set up fourth down – the Bison even stripped the QB on the play, but saw an offensive lineman recover – but fourth-and-8 went for 9 yards following a missed tackle. Three plays later Northwest owned the gamewinning score. “All we had to do was keep it up on the defensive side,” Central’s Johnathan White said. “We were tired, but when you’re in that situation, you don’t feel anything. You’re in the zone.” Northwest’s first scoring drive of the fourth quarter lasted 9:07 and covered 85 yards. The winning march included 12 plays in 75 yards and lasted 3:38. All told, Central ran just six plays in the fourth quarter. The crushing defeat in the second game of the Piedmont Triad 4A slate damaged Central’s shot at a conference championship, but didn’t ruin it. Northwest and Ragsdale have emerged as the two teams to beat now, with the likes of Central and East Forsyth just a notch below. But even squads such as Glenn and Parkland have proven dangerous this fall, meaning plenty of possibilities for ties atop the standings still remain. On one condition. “We don’t know how things are going to turn out. As long as we continue to win, we’ll be fine,” Jones said. “We had a good week of practice last week, and if we keep practicing like that good things are going to happen. We still have an opportunity to control our own destiny, to play for a conference championship. We’ve got a good football team. We’ll bounce back. We’ll be fine.”

Vikings pull no punches on Panthers BY JASON QUEEN SPECIAL TO THE ENTERPRISE

WALLBURG – Ledford came into its Mid-Piedmont Conference opener with a 2-4 record. North Forsyth, which ran through a brutal nonconference slate, entered 1-5. The difference between the teams was a mile wide, and the Vikings wanted to make sure everyone knew it. Sporting pink socks – mimicking the NFL’s October tribute to breast cancer awareness – the Vikings picked up two unsportsmanlike conduct penalties for wardrobe violations in the first quarter. The second one resulted in an automatic disqualification of head coach Pete Gilchrist. But that was merely the beginning of the Vikings’ faux-pas parade. Leading 26-0 late in the second quarter – the score might as well have been 100-0 considering how lop-

sided it was – the Vikings faked a PAT and tossed an end-around pass for a two-point conversion. Some defensive adjustments, a turnover and a missed field goal kept the score in check in the second half. But leading 42-0 with less than two minutes to play, North picked up a first down at the Ledford 5-yard line and had a chance to run out the clock. But the Vikings punched it in for an in-your-face touchdown for the final 42-0 margin. Some conferences use points for and points against as tiebreakers at the end of the season. That leaves the conferences open as scapegoats when a team runs up the score on another team. But in the grand scheme of things, most teams know when a game is out of reach and they take their foot off the gas pedal. The Vikings chose not to do that Friday night, and Ledford paid the price.



High Point Christian Academy’s soccer team beat Asheville School 1-0 on Saturday after falling 2-1 to Christ School late Friday on its trip to the mountains. The Cougars (6-11) got a goal Saturday from Thomas Suits. Zach Eanes had four saves to notch the win in goal. HPCA plays host to Greensboro Day on Tuesday.

Tigers eager for f irst-place showdown at Northwest BY DANIEL KENNEDY SPECIAL TO THE ENTERPRISE

JAMESTOWN – The Ragsdale Tigers are no strangers to success in October. For a third straight season, they find themselves as one of only two unbeaten teams remaining in their conference. Following the team’s 42-0 rout of Southwest Guilford, Ragsdale was ready to shift its attention to another Friday. The

7-1 Tigers will face Northwest Guilford, fresh off its narrow escape from Simeon Stadium in a victory over High Point Central. Both the Tigers and Vikings own 3-0 records in the Piedmont Triad 4A Conference. In each of the last two seasons, Ragsdale has dispatched of the visiting Vikings. One potential hitch in making it three in a row comes in the form of a vastly improved, hard-nosed

football team that is creating gaping holes in the running game. The last time Tigers coach Tommy Norwood’s squad went on the road to play Northwest was in 2007, when his team came away with its first loss of the season. This season, Ragsdale also will not have the luxury of playing at home. “We know they always play tough at home,” Tigers quarterback Luke Heavner said.

“It’s going to be a dogfight. We’re going to go to work this week in practice and hopefully we can come out with a win.” In order for Ragsdale to have a chance, Heavner must put together another performance like the one he had against Southwest. The senior signalcaller went 14-for-19 in throwing for 266 yards and four touchdowns without turning over the ball. “I thought he probably

played his best game all year,” Norwood said. “He’s been playing well over the last month or whatever, but tonight looked real good.” When asked how he would prepare for Friday’s enormous matchup to avoid a setback coming off such a huge win, Norwood offered a simple explanation. “It’s Northwest Guilford. There’s no letdown for that,” Norwood said with a grin.



Louisiana is alive and healthy after the spill T

hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing like gullibility to encourage me to push a good one on someone and I never miss an opportunity. I certainly would never have done anything to really harm my victim. In fact, I was madly in love with her, but I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t resist creating a little funny memory that would stay with us for a long time. After all, it was she who at one time had been worried because she just couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t imagine what it would be like to look back in time and have long-term memories of our relationship. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yep,â&#x20AC;? Donnie Thomas, our guide, confirmed looking away from Cherie, my new bride of two days, â&#x20AC;&#x153;it is a tradition in Louisiana that the one that catches the biggest fish always has to kiss it. As Dick said, the tradition to make those who didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t catch a really big fish feel better about the trip.â&#x20AC;? Cherie eyed the big redfish cautiously. We were standing on the deck of Donnieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s houseboat getting ready to clean about a bushel of what the rest of the world calls redfish and we call puppy drum. I had just advised Cherie that, since sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d caught the biggest fish, she had to kiss it. Yes, she did kiss that fish, and yes, we do have years of happy memories together. Some of the best of those memories come from the land of great food, great fishing, and great music, Louisiana. This week, Cherie and I were in another of our favorite places, Alabama, and we were surrounded by other outdoor writers and friends from the industry, including a whole host of folks from the Cajun state. We had a great time but one of the best parts was finding out the real condition of the


FONTANA, Calif. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Kyle Busch took advantage of two poor pit stops by Kevin Harvickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crew and rallied from a speeding penalty for his record-extending 12th Nationwide Series victory of the year Saturday at Auto Club Speedway. Busch, the polesitter, had the best car on the restarts, but Harvick was better on the long runs in the 300-mile race. Harvickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crew negated any long-run success he was having, bumbling two pit stops to knock him out of the lead twice. Busch had a pit-road problem of his own and dropped to 15th after being penalized for speeding, but quickly worked his way back to the front and pulled way in a final five-lap dash after a wreck took out Danica Patrick. Points leader Brad Keselowski was second, and Harvick finished third. Patrick started 14th for her best qualifying run in her eighth Nationwide race and was on pace for a top-15 finish, only to get taken out in a hard wreck with two others with 10 laps to go. She wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hurt.

Rays avoid elimination with 6-3 win over Rangers ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; John Jaso hit a tiebreaking RBI single in the eighth after Carlos Pena had another rare clutch playoff hit for Tampa Bay, and the Rays avoided elimina-

tion in the AL division series with a 6-3 victory over the Texas Rangers on Saturday. The Rays cut their deficit in the best-of-five series to 2-1. Game 4 is today.

Braves seem determined to delay Coxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s retirement ATLANTA (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; No matter how many injuries they face, no matter how hopeless the situation seems, the Atlanta Braves are determined to put off Bobby Coxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s retirement as long as possible. Another player went down in Game 2 of the NL division series â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and a mighty important one at that. But the Braves shrugged off the loss of closer Billy Wagner and got down to figuring

how they can win an NL division series with the San Francisco Giants that is improbably tied at one game apiece. Game 3 is this afternoon at Turner Field. Tim Hudson will start today for Atlanta. Wagner is likely to miss at least the rest of the division series with a left oblique injury in the 10th inning of Friday nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dramatic 5-4 victory in 11 innings.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true the spill was an environmental disaster and we wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know the total effect for several years but it was not nearly as bad as portrayed. There was damage but the damage was greatly exaggerated in the mainstream press. Very little oil actually reached the beaches but the footage of this part of the disaster was shown over and over in the press since no one would be interested in video of the unaffected areas. As far as the oil in the water, it may affect some species of fish, but there is little damage to the coastal species and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no obvious reason to believe the offshore species will be harmed. The Gulf Coast is one of the finest fishing locations on earth, there has been little commercial fishing in the last months and the sport fishing pressure has been low due to all the bad news we saw on TV. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to get back down there and Cherie and I are working out the arrangements for our next trip. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking forward to spending time in the Sportsmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Paradise, that is Louisiana, and I plan to personally sample as much seafood as possible to make sure it really is OK. If you want to eat safe Louisiana seafood now is the time because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never been tested like it is now. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m planning right now to go down and test some for myself.

the way news coverage made it sound like the beaches were covered in oil but the fact is the winds and currents kept the pollution away from most of the beaches and marshes. One resident told me she felt like the media had stomped on them and they needed to get the word out that everything is OK. She reminded me that running news footage all day showing healthy beaches and marshes doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t attract ratings like showing oil soaked birds. I talked to several guys who worked on the cleanup efforts and they were going fishing every afternoon and catching fish. There is some good news from this. First, the attempts to keep the oil out of the marshes caused the normally closed diversions that keep the river channel open to be opened. This allowed huge flows of fresh water through the delta. This flow rejuvenated the wetlands and they now look the best they have in years. As a result, the early duck season was the best theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had in years. The other benefit of the spill is not environmental. As a result of the damage to tourism during the time when Americans were constantly bombarded by scenes of horrible devastation, BP has so far awarded $5 million to help restore tourism levels to where they were before the spill. The money was used to start the Louisiana Tourism Coastal Coalition. The organization consists of ten parishes, all of which border the Gulf Coast. The coalition will market and promote tourism in the area to restore the income lost due to public perception. The feeling of the folks I talked to was that this would have long term beneficial effects to the area.

coast of Louisiana where Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve enjoyed some of the best fishing of my life. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been heartbroken by watching all the news footage from the Venice Marina and Fishing Center where Cherie, Donnie, and I SPORTS launched our boat on our honeymoon. In some Dick of the footage, we could Jones see Donnieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s houseboat â&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  where sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d kissed that redfish and created one of my favorite memories. The good news is the fishing in the Gulf is in great shape. In fact, there was a lot less trauma created by the oil spill than you would have gathered from watching the hours and hours of disaster footage on multiple news outlets. This week, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been with some of my Louisiana friends at the Southeast Outdoor Press Association press conference and the news is good. My friend, Chris Holmes, a freelance outdoor writer from the New Orleans area, said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Certainly, the potential was there for some real damage but the good news is, there was hardly any consequential damage to our land and no damage at all to our fishing and hunting. The real damage is a matter of perception. As a result of all the news footage, people think the beaches and marshes are contaminated and our seafood is unsafe. For me as a lifelong resident of South Louisiana, the word Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to see out there is that the seafood is safe, the people are there, the beaches are clean, and we certainly need the tourists to come down and enjoy what Louisiana has to offer.â&#x20AC;?

Panther men net fifth straight victory ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORTS

LYNCHBURG, Va. – The High Point University men’s soccer team extended its win streak to five in a row with a 2-0 win over Liberty on Saturday morning. The Panthers improve to 8-2-1 overall and 3-0-0 in the Big South. High Point got a goal early in the contest when a rebound from a shot by Shane Malcolm hit off a Liberty player and into the goal for an own goal. Malcolm made a good run from the right wing and let loose with a hard shot that clanged off the near post and then the Flames defender on the line. The Panthers controlled the run of play through the first 25 minutes of the game, but the Flames slowly began to string passes together, slowing the game down and holding long spells of possession. The Flames looked to have a chance to tie the game towards the end of the first half, but a header off a corner was expertly cleared off the line by freshman Adam Sewell and the teams went to the locker rooms with High Point still up, 1-0. Liberty opened the second half on the attack and twice got good looks at net, but the first shot was blocked and the follow was saved with a sterling diving stop by junior keeper Michael Chesler. With time winding down, junior Karo Okiomah added an insurance goal with his ninth tally of the season. Senior Scott Rojo set sophomore Shawn Sloan free in the box with a fantastic through ball and Sloan drew two defenders and the keeper to him at the right post before crossing to Karo on the left side of the box. Okiomah hit a rocket past the diving keeper who could not recover in time. Okiomah leads the Big South with nine goals scored. Rojo tied the High Point Division I single-season record with his ninth assist of the season, which leads both HPU and the Big South. Chesler finished the game with three saves to record his fifth clean sheet of the season and the 12th of his career, a Big South Division I record. High Point’s 8-2-1 record is its best through 11 games in the

school’s Division I era. The Panthers are just one win shy of tying the HPU Division I record for wins in a season. They won nine games in four separate seasons: 1999, 2000, 2008 and 2009. The Panthers continue their Big South schedule on Wednesday at 7 p.m., when they return to Vert Stadium to play Radford.

VOLLEYBALL GONZALEZ POWERS PANTHERS HIGH POINT – The High Point University volleyball team’s five seniors helped the Panthers rebound from a first-set loss to beat Presbyterian 22-25, 27-25, 25-18, 2519 Saturday at the Millis Center. Audie Gonzalez had a match-high 20 kills, including nine in the second set to help HPU pull out the 27-25 set win. “Today we showed our ability to battle back against a very strong Presbyterian team,” said HPU head coach Jason Oliver. “All five seniors stepped up, made big plays and worked hard. This win was crucial as we work toward the Big South Championship.” Gonzalez hit .326 in the match, digging nine balls and blocking one to go along with her 20 digs. Megan Smith posted 15 kills and 10 digs while Stephanie Wallin added 13 kills and three blocks. Julie Hershkowitz had a matchhigh 26 digs and Anna Lott came off the bench in the third set to contribute six kills in the final two frames. The win lifts HPU to 10-10 (5-1 Big South), while the Blue Hose fall to 9-11, 2-3. Freshman setter Maddie Simpson had 51 assists and sophomore Molly Barlow finished with 11 digs. HPU will travel to Radford for a 7 p.m. match on Tuesday.

MEN’S GOLF WILSON, GOINS SPARK PANTHERS WILLIAMSBURG, Va. – Sophomore Chase Wilson shot 72 and senior Nick Goins carded 73 to lead the High Point University men’s golf team in the first day of the Joe Agee Invitational. The Panthers shot 304 and are tied for seventh halfway through the tournament. William & Mary is leading the

tournament with a first-day score of 290 followed by Old Dominion at 294. The Panthers are tied for seventh with Towson and are just three strokes behind fourth-place IUPUI. Fourteen total teams are in the tournament. Wilson’s 72 puts him in a sixway tie for fourth and Goins’ 73 puts him in a six-way tie for 10th. Senior DJ Dougherty shot 79, senior Evan LaRocque shot 80 and junior Curtis Brotherton shot 88 in the first round. Just two players shot under par on Saturday, led by William & Mary’s Jeremy Wells at four-under-par 67. Play resumes with the final round today at 8 a.m. at the 6,800yard, par-71 Colonial Heritage Golf Club.

WOMEN’S GOLF PANTHERS STAND FIFTH PENDLETON, S.C. – The High Point University women’s golf team finished the first day of the Boscobel Intercollegiate in fifth place with a score of 325 behind a team-leading 77 from junior Chelsea Clendenin on Saturday. Play resumes with the final round today at 9 a.m. “The greens were not in good condition, but we can still improve on our shots getting to the greens,” said HPU head coach Vici Pate Flesher. “Overall, it was a fair performance today and we will do better tomorrow. We are playing smarter golf and our women are building the confidence to back up their simple shots. We have to keep hitting the middle of fairways and greens and the putts will come.” Host Wofford leads the tournament with a first-day score of 310. The Panthers lead Big South rival Presbyterian College by one stroke. Appalachian State, Newberry, Anderson and Pfeiffer are also competing. Clendenin’s 77 is just three strokes off the lead, which is shared by several golfers at 74. In the first round for the Panthers, sophomore Audra McShane shot 80, Leahanna Norriss shot 83, senior Danielle Soderberg shot 85 and sophomore Jessica Neese shot 86. Freshman Margaret Suchan shot 86 while playing as an individual.




Things could start getting sorted out in the NFC Least, uh, East, today as all four teams in the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most disappointing group play non-divisional games. Sure, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only four weeks into the schedule, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stunning that this usually powerful division has been so mediocre. The Cowboys are the biggest flop so far at 1-2, a half-game behind the Redskins, Giants and Eagles. Washington has the early edge thanks to wins over Philadelphia and Dallas. The Giants havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even played a divisional game, and they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t until Oct. 25. Outside of the NFC East, New York has a win over weak Carolina and a 10-sack demolition of Chicago, but looked awful in losses to Indianapolis and Tennessee. Those same Bears romped at Dallas, and the Packers handled the Eagles in Philly. The Redskins blew a big lead against Houston and also fell to St. Louis â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which might not be so embarrassing now that the Rams are tied atop the NFC West, which also is a train wreck. Dallas hosts Tennessee today, while Washington is home for Green Bay, Philadelphia is at San Francisco, and the Giants are at Houston. The Cowboys donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to move too far forward to grab the division lead. Off this week are Miami (2-2), New England (3-1), Seattle (2-2) and Pittsburgh (3-1).

TENNESSEE (2-2) AT DALLAS (1-2) While the Cowboys look to build off their first strong effort in a victory over the Texans two weeks ago, the Titans need to find running room for Chris Johnson. His pursuit of an unprecedented second 2,000-yard rushing season is off to a slow start with an average of less than 100 yards a game and a 3.8-yard average per carry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Us 11 guys, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to let this guy get out of the gate and off to the races, to beat us on one play,â&#x20AC;? Cowboys linebacker Keith Brooking said.

GREEN BAY (3-1) AT WASHINGTON (2-2) The high-pitched emotions of Donovan McNabbâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s return to Philadelphia are behind the Redskins, who played well enough to win that game even though McNabbâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance was middling. Washington must rely on untested RB Ryan Morain with Clinton Portis gone for at least a month with a groin injury, so McNabb needs to upgrade his play.

NEW YORK GIANTS (2-2) AT HOUSTON (3-1) Angry about their showings against the Colts and Titans, the Giants took it out with 10 sacks versus the

Bears. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re likely to need such a fierce pass rush against a Houston offense that has 108 points, more than any other in the NFC and fourth in the league. The Texans have found a nice balance with Arian Foster running the ball, and he could see extra duty if star receiver Andre Johnson is slowed by a sprained right ankle. Houston gets back last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top defensive rookie, linebacker Brian Cushing, who was suspended for the first four weeks for violating the performance enhancing drug policy.

itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Matt Stafford or Shaun Hill at quarterback.



Kevin Kolb didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look all that prepared when he had to replace injured Michael Vick (ribs, chest) against the Redskins. Considering the ample weapons the Eagles have on offense â&#x20AC;&#x201C; DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin, Brent Celek, LeSean McCoy, who also has rib problems â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Kolb needs to get up to speed against a San Francisco team in disarray.

KANSAS CITY (3-0) AT INDIANAPOLIS (2-2) Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s barely surprising thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an undefeated team in this matchup. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shocking that the Chiefs are spotless, the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only club without a loss. Kansas Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doing it with a strong running game led by Jamaal Charles and Thomas Jones, and a vastly improved run defense. Beating the Colts would stamp the Chiefs as legitimate, even if Indy is battered on both sides of the ball, particularly in the secondary.

NEW ORLEANS (3-1) AT ARIZONA (2-2) Two underachieving teams that, nonetheless, lead their divisions. The Super Bowl champion Saints have outscored opponents only 79-72 and have yet to have any breakout games offensively like the ones that carried them to their first NFL title. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a hobbled squad, especially in both backfields after long-term injuries to RB Reggie Bush and CB Tracy Porter. Still, the Saints look like world-beaters compared to the Cardinals, who somehow are 2-2 despite being outscored by 60 points. How badly does Arizona miss the retired Kurt Warner? The Cardinals will go with undrafted rookie Max Hall on Sunday, their third No. 1 quarterback this year if you count the preseason.

ST. LOUIS (2-2) AT DETROIT (0-4) Missouri football has peaked, with the aforementioned Chiefs at 3-0, the Rams having won two straight to double their win total from last year, and even the University of Missouri Tigers unbeaten and ranked 24th in the nation. St. Louis is getting excellent work from top overall draft pick Sam Bradford, despite a pedestrian group of receivers. The Lions struggle in all defensive categories, but they also throw the ball pretty well, whether

Rake in the Savings The retirement lifestyle you now even more affordable.

SAN DIEGO (2-2) AT OAKLAND (1-3) The Chargers could tie the longest active winning string against one team with a 14th consecutive victory over the Raiders. San Diego won its two home games handily, lost two close ones on the road. Other than a blowout loss in their opener at Tennessee, the Raiders have done well, a Sebastian Janikowski missed field goal short of being a .500 team.

If Darrelle Revis is over his hamstring injury, he can return for yet another matchup with Randy Moss. The Vikings acquired the big-play receiver from New England, where Moss was unhappy and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t catch a pass last week against Miami. Brett Favre plays a former employer, although itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hardly as juicy as when he plays the Packers. The Jets swept three games against division rivals and can truly back up their boastful ways by beating Minnesota.

DENVER (2-2) AT BALTIMORE (3-1) The Broncos made an impressive comeback at Tennessee and now get an even tougher road test. Kyle Orton has been brilliant at times as the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s busiest passer, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll need to keep his arm warm against the Ravens, the NFLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stingiest team against the pass. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect much from Denverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s running game, statistically the worst of the 32 teams.

ATLANTA (3-1) AT CLEVELAND (1-3) The Falcons were fortunate to escape against San Francisco, and the Browns finally won a game after leading in the fourth quarter every week. Cleveland now embarks on as rugged a stretch as anyone will see this season, facing Atlanta, Pittsburgh, New Orleans, New England and the Jets. Atlantaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two-pronged rushing attack of Michael Turner and Jason Snelling has impressed. So has Roddy White, who leads the NFC with 32 receptions and made that great strip of Clements to save the Falcons a week ago.

TAMPA BAY (2-1) AT CINCINNATI (2-2) Terrell Owens had his first big game for the Bengals and they still lost last week to the Browns. Cincinnati must be careful against a young and improved Tampa Bay squad whose pass defense is its best unit.

JACKSONVILLE (2-2) AT BUFFALO (0-4) Hard to believe the Bills could be favored against anyone, particularly a team that comes off a stirring upset of Indianapolis on Josh Scobeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 59-yard field goal. But Buffalo opened as a 1-point choice despite having as many problems as any NFL team.

Hospice nurse Janet Sendykar, believed to be the first High Pointer to have a liver transplant in 1988, talks with Garland McDowell about medication.

Miracle milestone Liver transplant recipient Janet Sendykar never thought she’d live to be 60 BY JIMMY TOMLIN ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER


IGH POINT – For nearly a decade, Janet Nowicki had battled a chronic liver disease that threatened to kill her. By early March 1988, the 38year-old High Point resident looked like a woman nearing death, because she was. Jaundiced, weak and fatigued, with fluid accumulating in her lungs, Nowicki feared she wouldn’t live to see her 5-year-old daughter, Johanna, grow up. “I couldn’t even get out of bed,” she recalls. “I had about two drops of energy, some days only one drop. I didn’t eat – I couldn’t eat. I basically was having end-of-life symptoms – everything in my body was shutting down.” Nowicki’s last remaining hope – a liver transplant – seemed increasingly unlikely. She’d already been told once that a liver was available for her, only to find out – as she was being wheeled out of her hospital room for presurgical tests – that the donated organ was no longer available. Two weeks later, she learned another liver had become available that matched her blood type, but it had been given to another patient in intensive care. Discouraged, Nowicki made up her mind she would leave Presbyterian University Hospital in Pittsburgh – where she had been awaiting a transplant – and return to High Point to die. Before she could leave, though, another liver became available – and this time, it wasn’t a false alarm. Nowicki’s heart raced. “I can’t even describe the feeling,” she says today. “You pray and pray and pray for something to happen, and then when it does


The High Point Enterprise chronicled Janet Nowicki’s journey to transplant in 1987 and ‘88. happen, you’re like, ‘Oh my God, this is really gonna happen!’ It was really scary.” **** The date was March 12, 1988, a date Janet Sendykar – formerly Nowicki – will never forget. It’s the day she became what is believed to be High Point’s first liver transplant recipient. More importantly, it’s the day she got her life back, and she wants to say thank you to the High Point community, which helped her pay for the transplant. Why now, nearly 23 years later? Because this weekend, Sendykar celebrates her 60th birthday, a milestone she didn’t expect to reach.

“I never, ever, ever thought I’d be 60 years old,” says Sendykar, who now lives in Jamestown and is a case manager for Hospice of the Piedmont. “I’m just grateful and shocked and amazed that I’m still here at age 60.” Sendykar was in her late 20s when she was diagnosed with primary biliary cirrhosis, a liver disease. “They really don’t know what caused it,” she says. “It’s a cirrhosis of the liver, just like you’d see with an alcoholic, only alcohol was not involved. It’s a progressive disease, and they had no cure for it. They just said it would keep getting worse until I died from it.” In 1987, with her health rapidly deteriorating, Sendykar was


On Nov. 6, Besthealth in Hanes Mall in WinstonSalem will be hosting its first Teddy Bear Clinic from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. In this special event sponsored by Brenner Children’s Hospital, children ages 3 to 9 can see what might happen when they visit the doctor or hospital emergency department. Children are encouraged to bring their favorite stuffed animal or doll and follow along as it receives an exam, X-ray and expert care from Brenner Children’s Hospital staff. Giveaways and fun activities will be offered, as well as health and safety tips, information about Brenner’s outpatient specialty services, and a tour of the critical care ambulance with the transport team.

referred to a new doctor in town – Dr. Lenny Peters, a gastroenterologist and hepatologist – who was knowledgeable about organ transplantation and recommended she go to the Pittsburgh hospital for a liver transplant. “I didn’t know much about transplants,” she says, “but it was my only option.” It wouldn’t be an option, though, until she could come up with the money to pay for the more than $200,000 procedure. Her insurance at High Point Regional Hospital, where she was an operating room nurse, would only pay $100,000, so hospital officials quickly established a fund for her and her family. “I had to have $30,000 up front to even go to Pittsburgh, so they started this fund and raised, I know, well over $30,000,” Sendykar says. “Dean Smith sent two tickets to a basketball game to auction off. Bob Timberlake sent me a painting to auction. The people in High Point had jars set up around town for donations. A lot of medical offices were donating, like, $1,000 each. It was just absolutely amazing. The people in High Point are so generous and so kind to any situation that comes up, and I don’t think you see that in every community. This is a town where people still care.” **** The liver transplant happened just in time for Sendykar. Had she not received the new liver, she likely would’ve died within two weeks, doctors told her. The eight-hour surgical procedure itself was relatively uneventful. “When I woke up, I felt like I




Flying with crematory ashes requires planning D

ear Abby: My wife recently died of lung cancer. While the family would like her ashes buried at the family plot, it was my wife’s wish for her remains to be scattered in a favorite location far away. Family members are trying to discourage me by raising all sorts of issues. Abby, is there any TSA or airline rule/law that would prevent me from carrying my wife’s ashes on a flight to another state? – Missing My Lady Out West Dear Missing: Please accept my deepest sympathy for the loss of your wife. I spoke with Transportation Security Administration spokesman Greg Soule. One challenge with transporting crematory remains may involve the security screening process. TSA personnel will never ask you to open an urn. However, if the urn is made of metal that cannot be penetrated by X-ray, it would have to be packed in your checked baggage or shipped. Some funeral homes will transfer ashes to a temporary plastic container in situations like this. Urns made of ceramic or wood typically do not present a challenge. Mr. Soule said he is not aware of any airline that prohibits passengers from


traveling with crematory remains, but it’s a good idea to check with the airline in advance. You should also visit www., click on “For Travelers” and read the section on “Traveling With Special Items.”

My problem is I’m afraid I project an image that is too “girly” or immature. I have a naturally high voice and people seem surprised when they learn how well I do in school and in extracurricular activities. Sometimes I’m tempted to prove them wrong, but I’m also worried about the impression I give professors, employers and those who matter. How do I present myself more professionally so that people will take me seriously without sacrificing my femininity? – Student in Oberlin, Ohio Dear Student: Whether it’s fair or not, many people do form preconcep-

tions because of the way someone presents her- or himself. Two suggestions come immediately to mind. Ask an adult to go through your closet with you and help you coordinate outfits that are conservative and more mature than “school outfits.” If you have the money, start investing in some clothes that are suited to a business environment. And last – but not least – talk to a voice coach or speech therapist about lowering the register of your voice, which will make you appear to be older and more assertive. Dear Abby: I am the father of a welleducated, 27-year- old daughter who has a master’s degree. Yet she never remembers birthdays, Christmas, Father’s Day, etc. with a gift. While I have never expected anything lavish, it’s hurtful to receive nothing but a card.

My daughter wasn’t raised this way. She was fortunate to have two professional parents who provided a very good life for her. What should I do, Abby? Should I just send a card for her birthday and Christmas, or write and let her know how hurtful I find her negligence? – Not Gifted in Florida Dear Not Gifted: Your daughter may hold a master’s degree, but she’s not a mind-reader. I can’t think of a better way to communicate your feelings in a clear, coherent way than to put them in writing. Go ahead and write her a letter. But before mailing it, wait three or four days so you can reread and edit it if necessary.

Consider all the angles before you make a decision that may lead you in the wrong direction. Focus on work, money and getting ahead professionally. You can make changes this year that set the stage for years to come. Don’t sell yourself short. Your numbers are 8, 17, 23, 25, 31, 42, 48 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Embrace change and show satisfaction with what you have and can accomplish. Allow a little leeway for those unable to adjust as quickly as you. Don’t let a burden become too big an issue or you will have trouble controlling it. ★★★ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Keep everything in perspective, especially when it pertains to home and love life. Personal issues are likely to arise if someone doesn’t feel you have been paying enough attention to your personal responsibilities. Finish what needs to be done. ★★★ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): A serious approach to your future should be discussed with people who can help or will be affected by the decision you make. You have the ability and the discipline to follow through with something you’ve wanted to do for a long time. ★★★ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Someone may try to limit your success or hold you back. Added responsibilities will put pressure on your tight schedule if you don’t find a way to delegate some of the work. Be a mastermind at preparation and organization. ★★★ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don’t give up on someone who is having a tough time figuring things out. Emotional upset, coupled with a lack of information can lead you astray. Concentrate on helping others or volunteering in your community. ★★★★★ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): It’s recognizing what you have and what you can do with it that will make the difference in the way you view your future. Love is in the stars, so get together with

someone with whom you can share your emotions. Use past experience to help you now. ★★★★ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You are being too restrictive and overbearing regarding your relationships and your responsibilities. Think outside the box and you will find a way for greater possibilities to unfold. Don’t let depression get in your way. ★★★ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Pick the activity or the group with which you want to interact. Don’t leave any outcome up to someone else. There are changes to be made that will bring you greater options and allow you to take something you’ve been working on to new heights. ★★★ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Acceptance is the key to getting ahead. Concentrate more on what you can do, not what you cannot. Hard work and research will pay off. Contact people you have worked with in the past and see what possibilities exist. ★★★ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Gauge what you offer by what you feel is necessary. Put more time into your personal life if it will help ease your mind regarding long-term issues. Greater opportunities will help you put the past behind you. ★★★★ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Emotional deception is the enemy. Make sure you understand what the consequences are before you offer to do or say something you might regret. Not everyone will be on your side or be sincere. Negotiate your position without emotion. ★★ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You can find out important information. Talk about your feelings and share your intentions and plans for the future. Once you know where you stand, it will be easier to adjust your plans to suit everyone’s needs or to move on alone. ★★★★★ 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.

Meet Robert, an intelligent, soft-spoken 57 year-old with a kind smile who was diagnosed with schizophrenia twenty years ago in his late thirties. While medication has certainly helped Robert’s condition, it’s the services of the Mental Health Association of High Point he really credits with his road back to a more fulfilling life. Four days a week for the past four years, Robert has participated in Destiny House, a psychosocial rehabilitation program that he says “has really helped me focus and move from being dependent on others towards becoming more independent.” Robert, who has a Business degree from UNC-G, also works part-time in the MHA Market Sample Store and really enjoys it. “I have advanced in this program to the point where I feel so hopeful about independent living, and it’s because of what Destiny House has offered me: coping skills, work skills, and really great support.” Last year approximately 50 people participated in the Destiny House program at the Mental Health Association. Any one of these people could be a family member or friend. Let’s work together to make sure the services our neighbors need to get their lives on track are there when they need them. Please support United Way of Greater High Point in the 2010 campaign. Give. Advocate. Volunteer. LIVE UNITED.

Woman questions future with older boyfriend Q

I have just entered into a relationship with a man whom I really love and care for. I have one small but nagging concern about our relationship â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m 22 years old and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s almost 40. Will this be a problem? Jim: Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing inherently wrong with such an arrangement, but there are some things you should consider before going too deep into the relationship. The first has to do with the basic difference in your life experiences. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re barely beyond college age; heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s approaching midlife and has already spent considerable time in the adult world pursuing a career and having romantic relationships. Under normal circumstances, he will have achieved a greater degree of maturity than you have at this stage in your life. Now, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not accusing you of being â&#x20AC;&#x153;immature.â&#x20AC;? And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quite possible that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s young at heart. But you should honestly consider whether the

difference in your levels of life experience will impact your relationship before forging ahead. In addition, some young women are attracted to older men because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really looking for a father figure. The men recognize FOCUS this and manipulate or ON THE control their younger girlfriends. Take a personal FAMILY inventory and consider whether you view your Jim Daly and boyfriend as a peer and Juli Slattery partner or if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re seekâ&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  ing to meet an unmet father-need. If itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the latter, put a halt to the relationship in fairness to you both. I know plenty of happily married couples who have significant age differences between them. But you do need to take these things into account before moving forward.

Q: When I got engaged last week I got a hostile reaction from my parents, especially my mom. She believes weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re â&#x20AC;&#x153;too young,â&#x20AC;? even though weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re both in our mid-20s. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m wondering if this is because of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;empty nestâ&#x20AC;? syndrome â&#x20AC;&#x201C; my mom and I have always been close, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m the last of her children to leave the home. What should I do? Juli: Even though, in your mind, parents should greet an engagement with a lot of enthusiasm, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fairly normal for them to have some anxiety, and even hostility. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve already touched on the idea that it will be difficult for your mom to let you go. Your marriage means a huge transition, not only in your relationship with her, but in her own life. Give her time to adjust to the idea of losing you. Having said that, your parents may also have legitimate concerns about your engagement. Often they can see something that you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. For example, they may

LDL cholesterol is still focus of treatment D

ear Dr. Donohue: Will you please tell me how to raise HDL cholesterol? My recent lab tests yielded the following results: LDL,78 mg/dL and HDL, 34. As you know, this HDL is below normal. I try to do everything right. I do not smoke, and I exercise daily. My body mass index is normal. I eat a high-fiber, low-fat diet. I take Lipitor and fish-oil capsules. I am a 66-year-old man with some familial incidence of cardiovascular disease. I read that drinking red wine helps raise HDL. Given that my other lipids are all within normal, do I even need to worry? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; C.L. You are doing everything right. All your lab tests show it except for HDL cholesterol. The focus of attention remains on LDL cholesterol â&#x20AC;&#x201C; low-density lipoprotein. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;badâ&#x20AC;? cholesterol, the cholesterol that contributes to artery clogging and, therefore, heart attacks and strokes. Your LDL number is excellent, even for someone who has had a heart attack. We could stop there and say forget your HDL cholesterol, but letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not. HDL cholesterol, â&#x20AC;&#x153;goodâ&#x20AC;? cholesterol, is the kind that goes to the liver for disposal. Numbers less than 40 are a risk for having a heart attack, but not as great a risk as the LDL numbers are, especially when your LDL numbers are so good. If you were overweight, weight loss would raise HDL. Exercising more

can elevate HDL. Avoiding trans fats will drop the HDL number. Trans fats HEALTH appear on all food Dr. Paul labels. The Donohue fish oil â&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  (omega-3 fatty acids) youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re taking brings HDL up. Alcohol, especially red wine, does boost it some. If you want to consider doing something about your HDL, these are the things to consider. Niacin bolsters HDL. However, your results are in such good order, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no sense in messing things up with another medicine unless your doctor says itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in your best interest to do so.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an autoimmune disease, another example of an illness caused by the immune system turning on its own body. Onset usually is in middle life. At first, the muscle spasms are intermittent, but they become more and more constant, more painful and more generalized. During sleep, they leave. Spasms during the day make movement difficult. People walk as though they are robots. Valium is the recommended drug. Baclofen, a muscle relaxant, is also used, as is intravenous gamma globulin.

Dear Dr. Donohue: Will you discuss stiff person syndrome? My daughter-in-law is diagnosed with it. Her symptoms began three years ago as leg cramps and spasms. Now her whole body is involved. In the past year, she has been hospitalized four times. She sees a neurologist, and her doctors have consulted with other doctors around the country. She takes Valium. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; J.S.

Since the â&#x20AC;&#x153;blocks under the headpostâ&#x20AC;? advice also can apply to sufferers of GERD, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tell readers that the condition under discussion here is orthostatic hypotension, a drop in blood pressure that comes upon rising from the lying or sitting position. The drop can be so profound that the person becomes dizzy and falls. Raising the head of the bed for this condition helps to quickly restore blood pressure when the person rises out of bed. It lessens the blood pressure drop. Part of it has to do with preventing loss of fluid into the urine. This isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the same process as leg swelling, which responds to leg elevation.

In the past 25 years, only 150 cases of stiff person syndrome have been described in the medical literature. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an underestimate, since not all cases are reported. The salient features are intense muscle spasms of the legs and lower back.

observe that your fiance is controlling or rude. If theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hitting on something that could be true, validate the concern. You could say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can see what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re saying. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why we are going through premarital counseling.â&#x20AC;? This mature attitude will assure your parents that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going into marriage with your eyes wide open and that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re aware of possible red flags. If your parents continue to harp on the same concerns, remind them that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve already talked about that and considered their advice. Also, be careful not to put your fiance in the middle of the drama with your parents. Emotions are probably running high on all sides. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make decisions or statements that could do lasting damage to the long-term relationships. Your parents will likely come around to supporting your engagement and marriage. In the meantime, reaffirm your love for them, acknowledging that this is a tough time for them.

â&#x20AC;&#x153; I was blown away by how perfect it was for an adult learner with a career and a family.â&#x20AC;? -Cathy V.

Dear Dr. Donohue: Please clarify your advice to put 6-inch blocks under the headposts of the bed. I have read that to prevent blood pooling, you should elevate your legs. I am totally confused. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; R.M.

Sculpture dismantled to aid cruises SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Crews have begun to demolish a big steel sculpture that had been the object of ridicule when it blocked a new cruise ship from docking in the U.S. Caribbean territory last year. Explosives were placed at the corners of the sculpture, which looks like a giant paper airplane propped up by gray legs. It was designed and paid for in part by Royal Caribbean and installed in 2006 as part of a $30 million project to build a new port in Old San Juan. The sculpture will be dismantled to make room for bigger cruise ships, said Port Authority spokeswoman Blanca Saez.

DC offers evenings of musical diplomacy BY SOFIA MANNOS ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER


ASHINGTON – It’s the season for embassy soirees in the nation’s capital, and the public is invited to attend a series of concerts and receptions – not just for the music, but also as a way to sample the social whirl of the diplomatic set on a trip to Washington. “It’s an international experience,” said Jerome Barry, artist and founder of the Embassy Series, a string of concerts and receptions that end in June at embassies throughout the city. “You can go to the Kennedy Center for a concert, but when it’s finished, you go to the parking lot,” Barry said. “With us, you have the opportunity to dine and to exchange views, thoughts, a broader perspective. It’s better than the news. It’s all a positive type of approach.” Tickets are priced from $40 to $125 and include a concert, open bar with both wine and soft drinks, and a buffet that reflects the culture of the embassy. Guests can mingle with the ambassador and aides in an informal setting that would otherwise be unavailable to the public. The music ranges from classical to ethnic, with an occasional program featuring opera or even Broadway, thrown in, and is emblematic of Barry’s mantra, “uniting people through musical diplomacy.” Attire is cocktail chic, though sequined dresses and the occasional tuxedo will dot the crowds. At the season opener on Oct. 1, guests were treated to Iraqi music played on authentic folkloric instruments such as the santour – an early type of hammered dulcimer – and sung by Iraqis in Ar-

EMBASSY SERIES: or (202) 625-2361 CULTURAL TOURISM DC: Around the World Embassy Tour, May 14, 2011. Embassy Chef Challenge, April 12, 2011. EUROPEAN UNION EMBASSIES OPEN HOUSE: May 7, 2011, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.; EMBASSY ROW: More than 50 embassies are located on Massachusetts Avenue NW between Thomas Circle and Ward Circle in Washington D.C. DESTINATION DC: international/embassies abic. The musical event, held at the Iraqi Cultural Center at the city’s Dupont Circle, had guests swaying in their seats and clapping to the Middle Eastern rhythms. One Iraqi woman even ululated in celebration. The musicians wore embroidered ethnic outfits and performed under the

banner “Safaafir Iraqi Maqam Ensemble.” “We can lift our spirit and soar with the tunes that virtually go back centuries,” Ambassador Samir Shakir M. Sumaida’ie told the crowd, expressing his relief that the evening provided a view of Iraq unrelated to war. “This is

an opportunity to see the other side of Iraq.” When the performance was over, attention shifted to food. A buffet offered platters of Middle Eastern dishes such as baba ganoush, which is made from eggplant, along with lamb kebab, a meat-filled croquette called kibbeh, saffron rice, fattoush salad with pita and greens, and hummus. As guests worked their way through the spread, they also enjoyed fresh watermelon, strawberries and cantaloupe, along with dates and baklava pastries for dessert. Upcoming events in the series include an Oct. 17 Beethoven concert at the Austrian embassy; an Oct. 29 concert of Baroque music at the Australian embassy; music, food and wine from Kazakhstan at that country’s embassy on Nov. 21; and songs

from the Irving Berlin musical “Call Me Madam” at the Luxembourg Embassy, Dec. 3 and Dec. 4, in honor of Perle Mesta, the socialite who inspired the musical and who served as a U.S. ambassador to Luxembourg. The Iraqi event was not held at the embassy, but at the Iraqi Cultural Center, the venue’s first such gathering. “The embassy is too small and the residence, although very elegant, would hold only 30 people in each room, not suitable for a concert,” Barry said in an email. The event drew 175 people, filling the room to capacity. Throughout the evening, the ambassador, Barry and their guests exchanged ideas from geopolitics to recipes. One guest observed that the events are a little like taking a trip abroad, since embassies are technically the property of their countries. “We want people to experience some of the customs of the country to get a feeling for it,” Barry said. The Embassy Series, which sells tickets online or by telephone, is not the only avenue to the embassy circuit. The European Union holds an annual open house at member embassies in Washington (scheduled for May 7 in 2011). Cultural Tourism DC organizes an Around the World Embassy Tour each spring, a day of open houses at more than 30 embassies, as part of Passport DC, a program showcasing international culture and heritage in Washington. Next year the embassy tour is scheduled for May 14. An annual fundraiser for Cultural Tourism DC pits embassy chefs against one another in a contest; the next Embassy Chef Challenge is April 12, with tickets at $250.

had been run over by a truck,” Sendykar recalls, “but I also felt an energy I had not felt in 10 years. I had to stay in Pittsburgh for about a month after the transplant, but I did very well.” The transplanted liver, which came from a 16year-old boy who had died in a car crash, is as strong as ever, according to Sendykar. “I take 12 pills in the morning and five at night, and I’ve done that for 23 years,” she says. “Some of those pills are a little hard on your body, so I’ve had a few ups and downs, but I think I’m in pretty decent health at age 60.” Eventually, she was well enough to return to nursing, and about five years ago she decided to use her nursing skills

with Hospice of the Piedmont – in part because of her transplant experience. “I was in that position of being two weeks from dying,” Sendykar explains. “I don’t know that Hospice was as prominent back then, but we were never approached by Hospice, and for me it could’ve been so beneficial, even though I ended

up having the transplant and doing well. It was difficult emotionally for me and my family. I saw how people in that position really needed somebody to help them, and I felt like that was what I wanted to do.” As she celebrates her 60th birthday, which was Saturday, Sendykar marvels at how well she’s done.

“I envisioned that the transplant could save my life, but I didn’t envision that I could be someone who would be out and working and just a regular person,” she says. “I thought I would probably still be sick the rest of my life, but I’ve done great.” | 888-3579

Am I entitled to widowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s or widowerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s benefits if I remarry?

A. Generally, you cannot get widowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s or widowerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s benefits if you remarry before age 60. However, remarriage after age 60 (or age 50 if you are disabled) will not prevent you from getting benefit payments based on your former spouseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work record. And at age 62 or older, you may get benefits based on your new spouseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work, if those benefits would be higher. See our publication, Survivors Benefits at www. pubs/10084.html, for more information on qualifying for widowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s or widowerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s benefits. Q. Will a student attending college be eligible to receive benefits? A. No. At one time, SSA did pay benefits to eligible college students, but the law changed in 1981. We now pay benefits only to students taking courses at grade 12 or below. Normally, benefits stop when a child reaches age 18 unless he or she is disabled. However, if the child is still a full-time student at a secondary (or elementary) school at age 18, benefits generally can continue until he or she graduates or until two months after he or she reaches age 19, whichever is first. Q. My mother, a widow, died in late July. Social Security tells me that I must return her July benefit (paid in August) even though she was alive most of the month. Why is this?



A. Social Security benefits are not prorated. To be entitled to a Social Security benefit check for a given month, the person must be alive the entire month. No benefit is payable for the month of death. This provision has been in the law since 1939 and can be changed only by an amendment to the Social Security Act. The legislative history of this provision does not show why benefits are not payable for the month of death. However, the provision complements the provision of the law that allows us to pay survivors benefits for the entire month of death. You can return the check to your local social security office. If the payment is made by direct deposit, the U.S. Treasury will automatically debit the bank account.

Dog rescuer promotes natural flea prevention


ear Dr. Fox: Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m writing in response to your discussions about flea/tick preventives. I have been in the rescue business for 17 years, and we have had as many as 31 dogs in our home at one time. I decided years ago that I would stop using the chemical products of any kind for fleas and ticks. Instead, I use an all-natural product called Natural Defense by Sentry. Its ingredients are peppermint, cinnamon, lemongrass, clove and thyme oils â&#x20AC;&#x201C; no synthetic chemicals at all. We have never had any problems with fleas and get only three or four ticks a season. This product has a pleasant smell and is safe for use on puppies and around children â&#x20AC;&#x201C; much safer than chemical products. We also keep our underbrush well trimmed and cleared. I hope that you find this information useful. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; L.R., Springfield, Va. Dear L.R.: Any tips that help keep fleas and ticks away, and are pet-safe and environmentally friendly, are always welcome in this column. The natural product you describe can frighten some dogs because of the novel scent of the various essential oils, so I advise just a dab to begin with. However, this should not be used on cats, as they could become ill ingesting the oils when they groom themselves. Like malnourished plants that attract insect pests, dogs and cats fed manufactured â&#x20AC;&#x153;junkâ&#x20AC;? pet foods seem to attract more fleas than those fed more






wholesome diets and given nutritional supplements such as brewerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s yeast.

Dear Dr. Fox: When my little Dr. Michael dachshund Fox Penny was â&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  6 months old, she spent five days in the hospital. She was losing weight and would not eat or drink. She seemed to improve after a while, but then she started having vomiting spells. The vet did blood work, exams, etc., and couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find anything wrong. These vomiting spells went on until she turned 4 years old. This week, she had a bad spell that scared us. I took her to the vet, and when he took a different blood test, he said she has pancreatitis. He put her on a special diet food that I buy through him. I want to know if there is any kind of food or treat she could have apart from the Royal Canin. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; L.S., Burleson, Texas Dear L.S.: Many dogs suffer from pancreatitis. It can be brought on by feed-

ing too many fatty treats at Thanksgiving and Christmas, along with too much protein, which harms dogs with poor kidney function. Pancreatitis may also be associated with liver- and digestive-tract disorders, so one must be alert to other health problems in association with diagnosed pancreatitis, which can be either acute or chronic in nature. While genetics may play some role in breed susceptibility to pancreatitis, smaller breeds like yours

are especially susceptible because they are too often fed the â&#x20AC;&#x153;gourmetâ&#x20AC;? canned dog foods that are too high in fats and only list the fat content as a minimum rather than maximum percentage. The pet-food industry is not going to rectify these problems as long as it continues to profit (along with many veterinarians) from the sale of expensive â&#x20AC;&#x153;prescriptionâ&#x20AC;? diets. They do nothing to prevent dietrelated diseases like what afflicts your dog.

President Barack Obama shakes hands as he arrives at a rally on the University of Wisconsin campus in Madison, Wis., Sept. 28 If you don’t like the economy, blame President Barack Obama and Democrats – they’re making times tougher, Republicans are telling voters entering the four-week home stretch to an election they hope will return them to power in Congress.

Economic pitch State of nation a blame game for both parties BY TOM RAUM ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER

WASHINGTON — If you don’t like the economy, blame President Barack Obama and Democrats because they’re making times tougher, Republicans are telling voters entering the four-week homestretch to an election the GOP hopes will return the party to power in Congress. Look, Democrats say,

Because Democrats hold the White House and both the House and Senate, they’re more likely to bear the brunt of an antiestablishment furor fueled by the ailing economy. it’s the Republicans who caused the financial meltdown and recession. Do you want them to do it again? As bad as high unemployment, record

home foreclosures and bankruptcies are, they’d be worse if the GOP had succeeded in blocking financial and auto industry bailouts and Obama’s stimulus plan, Democrats claim. The dueling arguments will dominate the airwaves between now and Nov. 2 in an election that will turn on which message is believed. Because Democrats hold the White House and both the House and Senate, they’re more likely to bear the brunt of an anti-establishment furor fueled by the ailing economy. Each party suggests it holds the key to future prosperity. Obama takes frequent credit for averting a Great Depression and for laying the groundwork for a recovery, which millions of people have yet to see. He blames the worst economic downturn since the 1930s on George W. Bush-era policies and Republican intransigence. It’s up to him and fellow Democrats “to clean up after their mess,” he says at party rallies. Republicans are playing to their base and trying to tap into the indignation evident in the tea party movement. They blame soaring deficits and a near 10 percent joblessness on Obama and Democratic policies, which they say promote runaway spending and stifle investment and job creation. The GOP is seeking to turn the races into a referendum on Obama, much as Democrats did in 2006 when Bush was in the middle of his second term.

Nineteen months into his presidency, President Barack Obama can point to a series of legislative accomplishments that under any other circumstances would be considered remarkable: The $814 billion stimulus program, which passed shortly after he took office. Landmark overhauls of health care and financial regulation. A major education bill. A $30 billion fund, enacted this month, to help small businesses. Overseeing a $700 billion bailout program for troubled financial institutions that was started under Bush. Helping complete the rescue of automakers General Motors and Chrysler. The White House argues that Obama gets little credit for such an impressive run, accomplished with little or no Republican support.




House Minority Leader John Boehner of Ohio (right), accompanied by House Minority Whip Eric Cantor of Virginia, speaks at a lumber yard in Sterling, Va., Sept. 23. “The mood of the country isn’t anti-incumbent — it’s anti-taxes, anti-spending and anti-Obama,” says House Republican leader John Boehner of Ohio. He’s in line to replace Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., as House speaker if Republicans regain control. In the latest Associated Press-GfK poll, about twice as many blame Bush for the recession as blame Obama. But Republicans and Democrats in Congress alike are seen as at fault by about four in 10 adults, and Republicans hold a narrow edge as more trusted to handle the economy. Republicans are expected to make big gains in November. Democratic leaders are having difficulty holding their troops together. So Congress left for four weeks of campaigning with lots of work undone, including the federal budget and the fate of

Bush-era tax cuts that are set to expire Jan. 1. Polls show widespread public skepticism toward the stimulus program, anger over the Wall Street and auto bailouts, mistrust of government in general, fears that jobs won’t return and worries about a national debt that has grown to $13.6 trillion — more than the nation’s gross domestic product. A White House report more than a weeks ago claimed the stimulus program was on track to create or save 3.5 million jobs by the end of December and that about two-thirds of the money had been committed in government spending and tax cuts. The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, by contrast, estimates the program is responsible for as few as 1.4 million jobs and as many as 3.3 million. Republicans scoff at the administration’s


use of the “jobs saved” category in its totals and point out that when the stimulus was passed, the White House said it would help hold unemployment at under 8 percent; it’s now 9.6 percent. With partisan rhetoric flying, Republicans and Democrats present starkly different perspectives of what’s at stake. Putting off a decision on the expiring tax cuts was a high-risk strategy that could backfire for Democrats. If no agreement is reached in a postelection session of Congress, taxes will rise on Jan. 1 for nearly every household. Neither party wants to be associated with that. Obama and most Democratic leaders favor letting the cuts, passed in 2001 and 2003, lapse for the rich, but continue for everyone else. Republicans suggest that could wreck the fragile recovery.

Wagner makes business growth top priority Elsewhere...

HIGH POINT — Jay W. Wagner is seeking the office of mayor of High Point. Currently serving as the town attorney of Wallburg, he attended Oak Ridge Military Academy and went on to earn his undergraduate degree at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill in 1990 and his law degree in 1998 at North Carolina Central University, where he graduated cum laude. He currently is a partner in the law firm Fisher, Clinard and Cornwell PLLC. He has served on the N.C. State Bar and the N.C. Bar Association in the Real Property and Zoning and Land Use sections. He currently serves as vice chairman of the High Point City Project and serves as chairman of the High Point Planning and Zon-

ing Commission. He also is chairman of the Uptowne High Point Association and remains active at Oak Ridge Military Academy and the YMCA of Greater High Point, where he serves as a board member. He also serves on the board of directors of Camp Cheerio. He and his wife, Leigh, have to children. Q: What role can and should the city play in economic development and job creation, and where do you see incentives fitting into that effort? A: Once the city provides basic services and fire and police protection, its primary task should be economic development. City government must be more aggressive in recruiting new companies, assisting small businesses to grow and developing new “home-grown” ventures. The city must remove impediments to business growth and development by lowering fees and taxes and streamlining approvals. Incentives can be used to assist companies seeking to locate or expand in High Point and to promote the redevelopment of neglected Core City commercial and industrial properties. I want High Point to be known as the most business-friendly city in the nation. Q: Should the city view the campaign toward regionalism as an overall benefit to High

Point or something that could threaten the city by shortchanging High Point? A: I support regionalism in terms of cities and counties working together to meet a common goal while maintaining their autonomy. Examples include regional land-use planning efforts, economic development and the airport. However, the call for regionalism has too often resulted in High Point being short-changed by losing control of vital government functions. Consequently, I do not support the merger of governmental services and departments because it eliminates local control over such functions of government and the corresponding accountability of local leaders for those functions. Prime example: the merger of the Guilford County school systems. Q: If elected, what would be your top priorities? A: (1) Comprehensive economic development; (2) quality of life — improved quality of life will allow us to attract and retain the professional and entrepreneurial class who will create tomorrow’s jobs. High Point must have the amenities other cities of our size have ... the retail, the parks, the events, the interesting gathering places where life and culture grow and thrive; (3) protect taxpayers’ money — elected officials are trustees of public funds. No more overpaying for property and wasteful spending; (4) state representation — High Point has over 100,000 people and has only one representative in Raleigh — an injustice, plain and simple.

Henley says he’s strong proponent of regionalism ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

HIGH POINT — A.B. Henley is a candidate for Ward 4 on the High Point City Council. A native of High Point, he has more than 20 years of senior management experience in the financial and distribution industries and more than 10 years experience in commercial real estate, including leasing, brokerage, development and property management. He was affiliated with the brokerage division of Triad Commercial Properties from 2005 until forming RealtyAnalytix Advisors in 2009. Before 2005, he developed and managed industrial and commercial properties located in the Triad and Western North Carolina regions, including the J.H. Adams Inn on N. Main Street. He also served as the former president of Henley Paper Co., founded in High Point in 1934 by his grandfather. The family business employed more than 200 people before being acquired in 1999 by Atlantic Packaging. He attended Guilford College on a basketball scholarship and earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill in 1986, where he went on to earn his master’s degree. He currently serves on the High Point Advisory Board of Branch Banking & Trust Co. and is on

the finance committee of the High Point Chamber of Commerce. He also has served as chairman of the High Point Community Foundation and has served with various boards and committees at High Point Regional Health System, High Point University and Westchester Country Day School. He also is past chairman of the High Point Boys and Girls Club, treasurer of the High Point County Club and treasurer of the United Way of Greater High Point. Q: What role can and should the city play in economic development and job creation, and where do you see incentives fitting into that effort? A: High Point’s Economic Development Corp. was formed in 1990 and is headed by Loren Hill. I consider Loren and Senior Vice President Sandy Dunbeck to be very capable and professional. What citizens need to know is that the competition is fierce for financially sound companies making meaningful investments in land, buildings and equipment. Mr. Hill and Ms. Dunbeck can only be as good as the product they are selling. If our mayor, council, city manager and staff are not constantly looking for ways to differentiate High Point from every other municipality an distinguish our community from the competition, then we will not be as successful as we need to be in broadening our industry base and creating job growth. Incentives are just one of several ways all municipalities differentiate themselves. I am supportive of incentives when they are appropriate; however, no company ever relocates on incentives alone. Q: Should the city view the campaign toward regionalism

as an overall benefit to High Point or something that could threaten the city by short-changing High Point? A: I absolutely believe that High Point should embrace regionalism. As the smallest of the three major Triad communities, I believe that High Point is well positioned to benefit from the wave of economic initiatives for which Winston-Salem and Greensboro leaders are expending resources. For instance, although not the huge success everyone expected, the Dell plant could easily have created a housing demand with High Point neighborhoods as a major beneficiary. The recent Caterpillar announcement very likely will take Dell’s place in terms of economic benefit to High Point. The Heart of the Triad initiative also presents High Point with a very meaningful opportunity for net economic benefits. Regional cooperation in the Triad does not suggest that High Point must somehow compromise its unique identity and character as a community. As a council member, I would be predisposed to cooperate with other municipalities on these type initiatives. Q: If elected, what would be your top priorities? A: Despite what we see and hear on the news, I’m not convinced personally that our local economy is in as good a shape as the rest of the nation and that bothers me. As a council member, my priority will be to promote the economic interests of High Point both within and outside the community. If a council member isn’t connected to what is working in other communities to attract new employers, they can’t be effective in their position. The first step toward improved economic development is embracing its importance and relevance as the lifeblood of our community. Entrepreneurs and corporations who choose High Point will be the catalysts for stabilizing our real estate values, contributing to our nonprofit community, joining our civic clubs and broadcasting the arts and cultural diversity of the city.

CHARLOTTE – North Carolina’s child death rate continued to fall in 2009, with the biggest drops in unintentional deaths such as auto accidents and in Sudden Infant Death Syndrome that claims babies in their sleep, according to a report released Tuesday. The state’s Child Fatality Task Force report shows that death rates per 100,000 children dropped

from 71 in 2008 to 67 last year. The newly announced rate is the lowest ever in North Carolina, the task force said in a release. It’s more than one-third lower than in 1991, when the death rate was 107 per 100,000 children. North Carolina that year created a child fatality prevention system to review children’s deaths and recommend changes in state laws and programs. “We are making progress. We should always celebrate that fewer kids

are dying,” said task force member Brett Loftis, executive director of Charlotte’s Council for Children’s Rights. But Loftis also acknowledged that North Carolina is still near the bottom nationally in many child wellbeing indicators. “We have nothing to celebrate as a state compared to the rest of the country,” Loftis said. “We still have too many children living in poverty.” Nationally, North Carolina ranks 42nd in low birth-weight babies.


CHARLOTTE – After heated debate, a majority of Mecklenburg County commissioners blocked a proposal Tuesday night to seek federal advice on how the county might report undocumented families of U.S.-born children who receive welfare benefits. The proposal from Republican Bill James – which failed by a 5-3 vote along party lines – came after heated and sharp criticism aimed

at the commissioner by some members of the county board and about a dozen residents who spoke against the plan. Dozens of others, many of Hispanic descent, filled the audience. “We cannot allow one man’s political grandstanding to do harm to our community,” said Stacey Bonilla, who argued that James’ proposal could ultimately cause extreme financial hardship to the county and residents. Commissioners from both parties said they support federal immigra-

tion reform. But board Democrats said they disagreed with James’ proposal, in part because it would violate current law and potentially put the county at risk for litigation. Some also questioned the timing of the proposal, saying it was a way to make Democrats who voted against the plan look bad before the Nov. 2 election. All six Democrats face competition in their re-election bids this year. The board’s three Republicans are unopposed.

Following film and TV, music takes stab at 3-D N

EW YORK (AP) – At the beginning of the re-emergence of 3-D, the focus was on film, with movies such as “Avatar” paving the way for the technology to become an integral part of the cinema experience. Soon TV followed, with sporting events like the World Cup featured in 3-D, and companies such as Sony and Samsung rolling out 3-D televisions. Now, the music world is making sure it isn’t left behind in the 3-D revolution. Justin Bieber and the Black Eyed Peas

are planning to release 3-D movie-concerts, while the music video for Shakira’s World Cup anthem, “Waka Waka (This Time for Africa),” had a version in 3-D. Even acts like Sia and the Broken Bells are producing 3-D clips. “It’s not the ’80s 3-D, like, the way people think of 3-D. It changes the art form of storytelling. It’s pretty amazing. It’s a whole new freaking jump-off,” said the Peas’ leader Oscar-winning director James Cameron, whose groundbreaking “Avatar” has become

the top-grossing movie in history, says 3-D’s spillover to music will find success. “Music videos in 3-D, it’s natural, that’s great,” he said. Cameron’s production company, Pace, will produce the Peas’ upcoming project. says 3-D music content will alter the way we watch music videos and concerts – and record labels have taken note. Jean-Baptise Duprieu, senior director at Sony Music International, says the company will “produce a lot of 3-D content this year.”

Art of recycling Deborah Munk, manager of the artist in residence program, looks over a piece of art called “Earthtear,” by Marta Thoma at the Recology recycling center in San Francisco. With the modern emphasis on diverting as much as possible from landfills, the concept of recycling has taken on a green hue. But it’s also a purely artistic quest to create new from old.

Book recounts obscure dead who once lived big BY MARY FOSTER ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER


he subjects aren’t all obscure in “The Book of the Dead: Lives of the Justly Famous and the Undeservedly Obscure” (Crown Publishing). But even there, many of the stories recounted are little known – and frequently hilarious. Authors John Lloyd and John Mitchinson had two criteria for including subjects in their latest book: They had to be interesting – and dead. And the result is a

book that is fascinating, funny and informative. Who knew that Catherine the Great wasn’t a sex addict and died after a stroke suffered in the lavatory? Or that Genghis Khan was a title, not the name of the man who “transformed a haphazard patchwork of squabbling goatherds into an empire of unparalleled strength”? How many know that it was Edward Jenner who discovered that cowpox inoculation was a safe way to prevent smallpox, which in the late 18th century in-

fected 60 percent of the population of Europe and killed a third of those who contracted the disease? Or that Mexican Gen. Santa Anna, who won notoriety at the Battle of the Alamo, inspired the invention of chewing gum? The short, clever biographies list detail that is unfamiliar about even the best known subjects – including Leonardo da Vinci, Howard Hughes and Henry Ford – and more than likely not part of any official biographies in the past.

Hiker followed shade during 6 days in desert came in the canyon and the gentleman asked me, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;hey are you that Rosenthal?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? he recalled. Rosenthal was dehydrated when rescue crews airlifted him to a hospital

and doctors told him his kidneys were in danger of failing. By Monday, he had recovered enough to return to his Culver City home. He did not think he would have survived with-

out the walking stick, the light rain and the small canyon that offered refuge from the sun. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That little five-acre canyon saved my life. It always had some shade,â&#x20AC;? he said.

After losing his bearings, he wandered some 25 miles in the searing heat to the canyon where he spent the following days with a horsefly that buzzed around him. He grew so discouraged at one point that he decided to recite the Shema Yisrael, a verse spoken by Jews when they think theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to die. The next morning, however, he woke up optimistic about pulling through. He began using his aluminum thermal blanket to signal helicopters he saw flying nearby, and twice used flares to light fires in the canyon. But searchers missed him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Finally, the helicopter that I had seen for days

LOS ANGELES (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A 64-year-old hiker who was stranded for six days in the Southern California desert said early last week he survived by staying still in a small canyon and moving only to follow the shade. Edward Rosenthal said he became so weak that he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sit up when a helicopter rescue crew finally found him last Thursday. He was gaunt and a bit unsteady Tuesday at his first news conference since the ordeal. He said he had lost 20 pounds in the desert. His face was tan and leathery, and his eyes were tired but alert as he recounted the days without food or water, beyond the rain drops he caught in his mouth during a drizzle that came the day before he was rescued. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m much more religious now,â&#x20AC;? he said in the thick accent of his native New York. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I prayed for rain and it rained.â&#x20AC;? His ordeal started Sept. 24 when Rosenthal went for a day hike but became disoriented after making a wrong turn while returning to his car. In the days that followed, he wrote on his hat what he thought would be his last messages of love to his wife and daughter and to offer plans for his funeral. To his brother he wrote: â&#x20AC;&#x153;A brother like you, is all good and true.â&#x20AC;? To his nephew: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gideon â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Kick soccer ass!â&#x20AC;? He named pallbearers for his funeral, specified a menu and asked guests not to solemnly mourn him but to get drunk and celebrate his life instead. Rosenthal, a prominent Los Angeles real estate broker, also recalled restricting his movements to use as little energy as possible, and using his prized walking stick to lift himself up and out of the sun just a few times a day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I had to walk 10 steps, that was a big deal,â&#x20AC;? said Rosenthal, who spoke in the dining room of Cliftonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cafeteria, a landmark restaurant he had brokered the sale of just days before leaving on what he thought would be a short hike in Joshua Tree National Park, where
