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. firstname.lastname@example.org | 888-3528

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. email@example.com / 888-3601

227% And SAT scores are up 100 points in just ﬁve years
HPU has 28 new buildings
THE MAY EXPERIENCE
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.
LIFE SKILLS AREN’T JUST IMPORTANT,
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.

HPU FOR HAITI
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.
AT HIGH POINT UNIVERSITY, EVERY STUDENT RECEIVES AN EXTRAORDINARY EDUCATION IN AN INSPIRING ENVIRONMENT WITH CARING PEOPLE.

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-

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.

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.

Leaders fail to resolve currency dispute WASHINGTON (AP) â€“ 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 â€œdeepenâ€? 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) â€“ 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 manâ€™s neighbors described strange behavior in the months before the shooting. Brendan L. Oâ€™Rourke, 41, was in custody Saturday for investigation of six counts of attempted murder and numerous weapons violations. Carlsbad police Lt. Kelly Cain said Oâ€™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. â€œHe is not cooperating with the investigation,â€? Cain said Friday night. â€œHe probably has some mental health issues.â€? Oâ€™Rourkeâ€™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) â€“ A federal grand jury is investigating whether the murder last year of Dr. George Tiller, one of the nationâ€™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 Tillerâ€™s death.

Suicide surge: Schools confront anti-gay bullying
Obama: GOP plan will hurt education WASHINGTON â€“ 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€™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€œWhat Iâ€™m not prepared to do is shortchange our childrenâ€™s education,â€? he said Saturday in his radio and Internet address.
Man who killed 3 at Donaldson ranch freed ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. â€“ A man who was 14 when he killed his father, stepmother and stepsister at newsman Sam Donaldsonâ€™s southern New Mexico ranch has Posey been freed from detention. Cody Posey recently was released from a state juvenile detention facility and was freed from court jurisdiction Friday, the day before his 21st birthday, according to a report from KOB-TV.
Brownâ€™s campaign apologizes for remark SACRAMENTO, Calif. â€“ 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€œwhoreâ€? 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€“ A spate of teen suicides linked to anti-gay harassment is prompting school officials nationwide to rethink their efforts against bullying â€“ 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€™s views of homosexuality. Itâ€™s a highly emotional topic. Witness the hate mail â€“ from the left and right â€“ directed at Minnesotaâ€™s Anoka-Hennepin School District while it reviews its anti-bullying strategies in the aftermath of a gay studentâ€™s suicide.
The invective is â€œsome of the worst Iâ€™ve ever seen,â€? Superintendent Dennis Carlson said. â€œWe 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€? Carlsonâ€™s district in the northern suburbs of Minneapolis is politically diverse, and there are strong, divided views on how to combat bullying. â€œWe believe that the bullying policy should put the emphasis on the wrong actions of the bullies and not the characteristics of the victims,â€? said Chuck Darrell of the conservative Minnesota Family Council. Thatâ€™s a wrongheaded, potentially dangerous approach, according to the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network â€“ which tries to improve the

NYC officials visit gang torture site NEW YORK (AP) â€“ 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.
12 hospitalized after overdosing at party ROSLYN, Wash. â€“ A dozen young people were taken to hospitals after overdosing on an unknown substance at a house party in central Washington, police said Saturday.

Fan told to stay away from Madonnaâ€™s NYC home NEW YORK (AP) â€“ He might want to tell Madonna heâ€™s crazy for her, but a fan who was arrested while proclaiming his love near her New York City apartment is being told to stay at least 10 blocks away. A judge made that a condition as he set bail at $20,000 on Friday for Robert Linhart. The 59-year-old retired firefighter was arrested last month. Authorities say he scrawled messages of adoration for the â€œCrazy for Youâ€? and â€œMaterial Girlâ€? singer outside her apartment building near Manhattanâ€™s Central Park.

Margaret Erga. “She opens up the cash register to make the change. He brandishes a small pistol and wants the money in the cash register,” Erga said. As the clerk
started to give the robber money, the robber reached under a Plexiglas barrier shielding the cash register area from the rest of the store. “As he did that, he put his pistol down. He scoops everything up, and the clerk reaches and grabs the pistol. She points it at him,” Erga said. The robber turned and ran from the grocery. No shots were fired, and no one was injured, Erga said. The police didn’t have a detailed description of a suspect as of Saturday morning. The Red Dot Grocery, which is along the gravel portion of Ennis Street, was closed Saturday afternoon following the attempted robbery.

GREENSBORO – The Moses Cone Regional Cancer Center will break ground on an expansion as Breast Cancer Awareness gets underway. A ground breaking ceremony for a $15 million, 33,000 square foot expansion and renovation will be held Monday at 6 p.m. at the Regional Cancer Center at Wesley Long Community Hospital in Greensboro.

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.

AT A GLANCE
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 www.kerseyvalleyzipline.com. 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. email@example.com | 888-3617
