Architect’s rendering of the Save-A-Lot Foods distribution center in Lexington.


DAVIDSON COUNTY – St. Louis-based Save-A-Lot food stores on Wednesday announced it will build a distribution center in the Lexington Business Park, creating more than 40 jobs and setting the stage for more of its grocery stores to open in North Carolina. “We looked at this a few years ago, and the timing didn’t work out for us,” said Rick Meyer, Save-A-Lot food stores vice president of real estate and construction. “Here we are finally. Here we are getting ready to start a 325,000-square-foot distribution center that will initially employ 40 folks and will employ probably two or three times that eventually because we know this facility will be successful.” In front of state and local leaders, including N.C. Sec-


Rick Meyer, Save-A-Lot Foods vice president, announces company’s Lexington distribution center at DCCC. retary of Commerce Keith Crisco, Meyer made the announcement on the campus of Davidson County Community College. Save-A-Lot food stores plans to create 43 jobs and invest $24.45 million during the next three years in Lexington, accord-

ing to a release from the governor’s office. Meyer said the company likely will break ground next month and be open for business in about a year. He said Save-A-Lot Foods currently has 1,200 stores across the nation, with about 20 in

North Carolina and 15 in South Carolina. With the new distribution center in Lexington, Meyer hopes to have about 100 stores in North Carolina in the next three to four years. “This is neat stuff for us,” Meyer said. “This is a great opportunity for us to grow our business. We have a store in Lexington already that we opened a few months ago which has exceeded our expectations.” According to the governor’s office, the project, previously code-named Project Lynx, was made possibly in part by a $125,000 grant from the One North Carolina Fund. The Davidson County Board of Commissioners and Lexington City Council partnered together to acquire 76 acres of land that will be ground leased for 12 years back to the company. Commissioners and the City Council also will provide

a combined economic development grant of $145,000 each year for 12 years to the company, said Steve Googe, executive director of the Davidson County Economic Development Commission. “This is a Fortune 100 company that has located in our county,” Googe said. “It’s always beneficial to have their logo on your information. It sends a message to other people with distribution that we are a destination for distribution facilities.” Company officials did not announce immediate plans of when employees would be hired for the distribution center. Salaries will vary by job function, but the average annual wage for the new jobs will be $30,279, not including benefits, according to the governor’s office.

Alixandra Yanus was hired as assistant professor of political science in the Department of Political Science at High Point University. Yanus will be responsible for teaching introductory courses in political thought and American politics, upper division courses on political institutions, women and politics, and judicial politics and co-teaching the department’s senior seminar.

HIGH POINT – Local municipalities will not be asking trick-ortreaters to take to the streets a day earlier for Halloween this year. High Point, Thomasville, Archdale and Trinity all report they will not ask residents to observe Halloween on Saturday, Oct. 30, leaving residents free to celebrate it on its customary date the following night. Burlington appears to be the only Triad city that is going to call for trick-or-treating on Oct. 30. That city is going to host a

Halloween event at a park on that date and ask its residents to be prepared for trick-or-treaters that evening. In High Point, officials report getting a few calls and e-mails about whether the observance is going to be moved up a day. The last time Halloween fell on a Sunday night, in 2004, the City Council adopted a resolution to observe trick-or-treating on Saturday, reasoning that since Oct. 31 was a school night and a time of church observances for many, it made sense to make the change. No such move is in the works this year. “The city does not determine when residents will celebrate

Halloween,” said Alice Smith Moore of High Point’s Public Information Department. Thomasville City Manager Kelly Craver said the city’s public safety committee discussed the issue, but decided to take no action. Craver said the City Council several years ago decided to tell residents to celebrate Halloween on Saturday instead of Sunday to ensure the safety of children. “The city is taking no position on the date or time of that celebration,” Craver said. “It will be celebrated as it falls on the schedule.” Ann Bailie, city manager of Trinity, also said her city is tak-

ing no stance on Halloween. “Halloween is Oct. 31, and the city takes no position on when trick-or-treaters do their thing or when churches or other organizations hold their events,” she said. Archdale City Manager Jerry Yarborough echoed Bailie’s comments. “We are not telling them anything,” he said. “Halloween is their personal choice, whether it’s celebrated on the day before or Oct. 31. There has been no discussion about changing or doing anything celebrating Halloween. That’s a parental choice.” | 888-3531

Traffic stop leads to drug charges ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT


Elisa Baker (center,) stepmother of Zahra Clare Baker, appears before District Court Judge Gregory Hayes on an obstruction of justice charge Wednesday in Newton. Baker is flanked by her attorneys, Jared Amos (left) and Scott Reilly, as she listens to Judge Hayes read the charges against her. She is accused of trying to throw off investigators with a fake ransom note.

Police search wooded lot for Hickory girl presumed dead HICKORY (AP) – Investigators used a police dog to search among tree-trimming equipment and piles of mulch for a missing 10-year-old North Carolina girl on Wednesday, a day after authorities said they believed the girl had been killed. Hours earlier, Zahra Clare Baker’s stepmother showed no emotion in court as a judge explained she could be sentenced to up to 30 months in prison if convicted of obstruction of justice. Elisa Baker is accused of trying to throw off investigators with a fake ransom note. The girl, who used hearing aids and a prosthetic leg because of bone cancer, was reported missing over the weekend, but police have indicated they don’t believe her father and stepmother’s story. Baker’s court-appointed attorney, Scott Reilly, said she was “scared to death” and very emotional about everything. “She’s upset about being held in jail. She’s upset about being away from her family,” he said. In nearby Morganton, seven officers and a police dog searched for Zahra on a wooded lot among piles of mulch and a wood chipper on Wednesday. The property has

equipment belonging to the tree services company that employs her father. Hours later, about 150 people gathered for a vigil in honor of the girl. An officer who asked for anonymity because he’s not authorized to discuss the case confirmed the site was among several where officers are searching for the girl. The officer said a different dog got a “hit” at the scene a day earlier, but nothing was found then. District Attorney James Gaither Jr. said he couldn’t discuss details about the case. “I’m upset. The facts are disturbing. You saw the images; she is such a darling child,” Gaither said. Friends have described Zahra as shy but upbeat despite her health problems. Elisa Baker is the only person accused in the case so far. Hickory Police Chief Tom Adkins said she was charged with felony obstruction of justice after admitting she wrote the ransom note, which asked for $1 million. She had already been in jail since the weekend on unrelated charges. Adkins has said police can’t find anyone outside Zahra’s household who has seen her alive in the last

month. The uncertain timeframe has made it difficult for investigators to narrow down places to search for her. Zahra’s father, Adam Baker, has said it was possible his wife could be involved in the disappearance, and other relatives echoed those remarks. The father has not been charged in the case, though the chief said previously he hasn’t been ruled out as a suspect. The ransom note found Saturday was the first sign that the case would turn sinister. Officers discovered it on the windshield of Adam Baker’s car when they came to investigate a yard fire at their home. It was addressed to a man Adam Baker had worked for, though police quickly determined that man’s family was safe. Zahra was reported missing that afternoon. The stepmother said she last saw Zahra sleeping in her room about 12 hours earlier, though Adkins has indicated he doesn’t believe the timeline the couple gave him. Relatives and former neighbors, meanwhile, described Elisa Baker as nasty-tempered and violent in interviews and court documents. Zahra usually took the brunt of her wrath, they say.

Ex-sheriff gets 14-month prison sentence NEW BERN (AP) – The former sheriff of Carteret County was sentenced Wednesday to 14 months in prison after pleading guilty to charges related to the misuse of funds. Ralph Thomas, 60, of Beaufort was sentenced by Chief U.S. District Judge Louise Flanagan,

who also gave Thomas three years of supervised release and imposed restitution of more than $80,000. Thomas pleaded guilty in May to conspiring to commit an offense against the United States. Prosecutors said Thomas stole funds designated


selves break it,” said U.S. attorney George Holding in a statement. An attorney for Thomas did not return a telephone call seeking comment Wednesday. Several deputies have also pleaded guilty in connection with the case.

and hard for me to follow. It’s not my strength, but I plan to go to more.” Armfield said he based his answers on his belief that the government should not become involved in private enterprise. “That’s the best way for us to create jobs, to allow capitalism to work. It will,” he said. “Everything’s got its fault. The fault of having government do it is there’s no competitive force at work. ... “Obviously there are some things government is designed to do: police, fire, water.

DAVIDSON COUNTY – A local man faces drug charges after sheriff’s deputies uncovered marijuana and cocaine during a traffic stop. The Davidson County Sheriff’s Office Interstate Criminal Enforcement Unit stopped a 2007 Ford Taurus on U.S. 64 at Interstate 85 on suspicion of reckless driving at about 1:40 a.m. on Tuesday. The car displayed a Virginia registration and was driven by Sean Christopher Newton, 28, of 1011 McCormick St., Greensboro, according to the sheriff’s office. During the course of the traffic stop, deputies frisked Newton and located 14 grams of cocaine and a set of digital scales on his person, au-

thorities said. Officers then conducted a probable cause search of the car and located about 224 grams of marijuana, which equates to about half a pound, packaged in a plastic bag in the trunk area, according to the sheriff’s office. Newton was taken into custody and charged with possession with intent to sell and deliver marijuana, possession with intent to sell and deliver cocaine, felonious maintaining a vehicle for drugs, possession of drug paraphernalia, reckless driving and was cited for having no operator’s license. Newton was booked into the Davidson County Jail under a $25,000 bond and has an appearance scheduled for Dec. 28 in Davidson County District Court.

Alleged US missile strikes kill 11 in Pakistan


DERA ISMAIL KHAN, Pakistan – Suspected U.S. unmanned aircraft launched four missile strikes at a house and two vehicles in northwestern Pakistan near the Afghan border Wednesday evening, killing 11 militants, said intelligence officials. The attacks occurred within about an hour in the Datta Khel area of North Waziristan, part of Pakistan’s semiautonomous tribal region that is dominated by militant groups.

UNITED NATIONS – The Security Council voted unanimously Wednesday to extend U.N. authorization for the NATO-led force in Afghanistan for a year, expressing “strong concern� at the increase in terrorist activities by the Taliban and al-Qaida. A resolution adopted by the U.N.’s most powerful body stressed the need for sustained efforts by the 143,000-strong International Security Assistance Force to assist the Afghan government.

The visit by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad underscored the eroding position of pro-Western factions in Lebanon. More broadly, it suggested that the competition over influence in Lebanon may be tipping toward Iran and its ally Syria, and away from the United States.

Luis Urzua, the last miner to be rescued, (wearing green), celebrates next to Chile’s President Sebastian Pinera after being rescued from the collapsed San Jose gold and copper mine.

Last of Chilean miners raised safely to surface SAN JOSE MINE, Chile (AP) – The last of the Chilean miners, the foreman who held them together when they were feared lost, was raised from the depths of the earth Wednesday night – a joyous ending to a 69-day ordeal that riveted the world. No one has ever been trapped so long and survived. Luis Urzua ascended smoothly through 2,000 feet of rock, completing a 22½-hour rescue operation that unfolded with remarkable speed and flawless execution. Before a crowd of about 2,000 people, he became the 33rd miner to be rescued. “We have done what the entire world was waiting for,â€? he told Chilean President Sebastian Pinera immediately after his rescue. “The 70


days that we fought so hard were not in vain. We had strength, we had spirit, we wanted to fight, we wanted to fight for our families, and that was the greatest thing.� The president told him: “You are not the same, and the country is not the same after this. You were an inspiration. Go hug your wife and your daughter.� With Urzua by his side, he led the crowd in singing the national anthem. The rescue workers who talked the men through the final hours still had to be hoisted to the surface.

TOM PURCELL: Too many wait on government for ‘American dream.’ TOMORROW

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


We’ve allowed career politicians to hurt country I have been showered with so many blessings in my almost 80 years on this Earth that it is difficult for me to be angry. However, anger is fast approaching the same level as the heartfelt joy and thankfulness that fill my heart and my days. Much of my anger is directed at me and you – who have been stupid enough to allow career politicians to create a fiefdom in Washington, D.C., from which they dictate to us – while they ignore any law, from God or man, with impunity. President Obama has shown me arrogance and disdain of our well-trained military leaders in this war with an enemy determined to kill anyone that refuses their domination. His statement, “We are able to absorb another attack as devastating as or worse than 9-11,” is proof of his stupidity. The American desire to remain free will survive many attacks – even his presidency that seeks to turn us into servants who exist to pay taxes. Health care reform! Will someone please advise me what my employer spends each year for office supplies from Office Depot



has to do with health care. We are learning most of that law is devoted to control of our daily lives rather than improvement of the health care system. It will not improve anything. It will become another bloated federal program like welfare, Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. Both the Democratic and Republican political parties are concerned with preserving power wielded by the “party in control.” Let’s elect non-career politicians to re-establish a process in Washington which will make laws which are openly and fully debated – and completely clear as to it’s ramifications before it becomes law.

Ideologues thrive in absence of independent thought Social discord in America reveals once again the need for a

spiritual inoculation to replace the propositional excess of institutional religion. Although American Christianity masquerades as a mandate from God, it is clear religiosity is not spirituality. This commercialized enterprise of contempt for human variability is no more than the clamor of hypocritical interposition. Where is God within this imperial dissonance and xenophobic extravagance? At some point, America must realize that triviality is not enlightenment and personal convictions are not necessarily absolute truth. Much of the supercilious tripe masquerading as a social palliative is no more than concealed notions of transcendence. It is unrestrained bigotry seeking liberation within ponderous communiques of hatred disguised as religious and political expertise. However, these euphemistic ploys, laden with antipathy towards others, fail to camouflage depravity intent on marginalizing others for the sake of social supremacy. It is what it is.

Central to the barrage of polemical refuse is intellectual sluggishness victimized by clownish demagogues spewing venomous rhetoric. Portentous ideologies thrive in the absence of independent thought. Nevertheless, veracity may be retrieved at the point of departure from historical reality. A spiritual renaissance with social implications cannot exist within the context of national delusion and hyper-patriotism. Any honest examination of the idealized monument of American impeccability will reveal the rotted corpse of cultural deceit. Will the opportunity to move beyond the decay of national duplicity once again expire within the cesspool of geopolitical dominance and personal avarice? The spiritual integrity of a good idea – called America – corrupted by lies is once again being weighed in the balance. If there is ascendancy beyond “the valley of the shadow of death” it must begin with a renewed condition of the heart dismissive of unconditional nationalism. ANDREA L. JACKSON High Point

he idea has surfaced in years gone by. But it’s looking as though the thought of merging two regional planning groups in the greater Piedmont Triad area may well happen in the near future. Officials in municipalities and counties throughout the 12-county region that has cities of the Triad at its heart must approve the plan first, and then the state would have to give its approval. Let’s hope the pragmatic view of having just one planning group in the region finds favor. For years, even as officials in the Triad and from across the central Piedmont of North Carolina have talked about regionalism, the 12 counties have been home to two regional planning groups, Piedmont Triad Council of Governments headquartered in Guilford County and the Northwest Piedmont Council of Governments headquartered in Forsyth County. Sure, the two regional planning entities have tried to work together on many issues over the years, but the fact of the matter is that in this case, larger actually would be better. Combining the two planning agencies and the areas they each now serve would put the region in better position to win funding through federal and state grants. The High Point City Council is expected to endorse the idea, and we concur with such a decision. We are concerned, however, that, according to projections, High Point’s annual dues to the merged group would be $22,142, or about $1,000 more than currently paid to PTCOG. It would seem that consolidating the two offices would afford some savings in dues, not an increase. We’d urge officials of the merged agencies to look for such savings. But despite our concern about the annual fee, we still believe the two council of governments should merge, a move that surely would enhance the concept of regionalism that many have sought for years.

One step at a time, we seek a cancer-free world


his is not the column I really want to write. The column I want to write will be written with church bells pealing and the lead will be an announcement that cancer is over, the cure has been found and henceforth, no more mothers, brothers, sisters and sons will be stolen by that killer. The column I want to write will be a celebration. This column will be a report to my investors, written not with church bells pealing, but with feet up, callused, blistered and tender to the touch. As some of you know, last weekend, I walked in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day For The Cure, a 60-mile hike to raise money against breast cancer. Powered by 514 investors in that cause – i.e., incredibly generous readers – I managed to raise more than $28,000. And yes, I walked every single one of those 60 miles, roughly the equivalent of walking from Miami to Boynton Beach, Houston to Galveston, Toledo to Detroit. So here is my report: We started out early Friday from Nationals Park in Washington, with the sound of “Walking On Sunshine” by Katrina and the Waves blasting into the chill morning air. We ended up Sunday afternoon, a sea of pink and white, marching, walking, limping, 10 abreast down NW 15th Street onto the grounds of the Washington Monument through a thunder of cheers. In between there was: line dancing at a major intersection; men in pink tutus serving as crossing guards; gallons of Gatorade; miles of gauze; hills that went up forever; a little girl offering M&Ms to walkers passing by; a woman with the cropped hair of the chemo patient, holding up a sign that said, “You’re Walking For Me.” And there was: the grandeur of the U.S. Capitol building just after dawn, the serenity of a suburban lake, bridges and railroad tracks, buckled sidewalks and shading trees and the visceral jolt of passing by some dispossessed family’s things falling apart out on the curb, bedding and books and a forlorn teddy bear that had lost its child. And there was: the encouragement from strangers greeting you with high fives and cars tooting their horns, and attaboys from little kids and adrenaline sipped from the words and rhythms of pop songs – Motown, the Beatles,

Frankie Beverly and Maze singing, “I’m so happy to see you and me back in stride again,” Edwin Starr shouting, “I got to keep on ‘walkin’!” and the theme from “Rocky” pushing us up another godforsaken hill. And there was: steak for dinner, OPINION portable johns, shower trucks, thank God for whoever invented Leonard the massage chair, quiet talking Pitts with new friends whose names you ■■■ don’t know, huddling under covers in your tent, cold, aching, satisfied. You know, we are sometimes afflicted with inertia, a tendency to regard certain challenges as too big, certain problems as too intractable. A fondness for the helpless shrug. That we have no reason to be so cowed, so bereft of imagination and respectful of limitation, is as obvious as footprints on the moon, or children who’ve never heard of polio, or the black man in the Oval Office. Yet for all the miracles to which we have borne witness we still sometimes allow inertia to hold us. The 3-Day was the opposite of inertia. Sitting in camp, watching people swarm about – crew members serving meals, handing out towels, cheering stragglers, walkers hobbling about seeking food or gauze or a cellphone charger – I thought of ants. Ants don’t know from inertia. They have a goal: to build and expand their underground cities. And they do achieve this by working cooperatively, moving earth one grain at a time. Last weekend, some of us moved grains of earth toward our goal: a cancer-free world. And it occurs to me that when I finally get to write the column I want to write, it will not need to be overly long. Indeed, I’ll be able to look back to these three days and say what needs saying in just that many words: We did it.

Facts show High Point isn’t a city that is ‘stagnant’ GUEST COLUMN

Before you read ...



City needs leaders who’ll chart new path to prosperity BY JAY W. WAGNER



ur city faces enormous challenges related to the national recession. High Point unemployment since 2008 has been as high as 12.2 percent (currently 10.8 percent) – the highest percentage for High Point since the state began keeping such records, and well above the national average: 9.6 percent. Since November 2008, High Point has suffered a net job loss of 1,428 jobs. A “dead mall� and empty storefronts, offices and factories plague our city. Showroom complexes are suffering unprecedented financial stress. High Point also lacks many of the civic and cultural amenities of other cities our size that can help us attract new investment and jobs. While we can’t control what happens nationally, we can control how we respond to it. Our current elected leadership has been unwilling to make changes to address these challenges. We must adapt and overcome. Elections are about the future. What is your vision for High Point in five years, 10 years, 20 years? My vision is that I want High


Point to be known as the most livable, fun, innovative and business-friendly city of its size in the United States ‌ a place where people arrive and say, “Wow! Look at what they have accomplished!â€? To make this happen, we must elect leaders who will chart a new path to prosperity for our city. New leadership for a new High Point. My promise to the citizens of High Point: If elected mayor, I will ‌ • Advocate for a new, innovative role for city government in economic development designed to promote the growth of large, small, and start-up companies in our city. • Aggressively seek companies that will sink roots in our community and become corporate citizens that support our arts, charities, and cultural community. • Aggressively support the redevelopment of neglected Core City neighborhoods and commercial districts to give High Pointers beautiful and inviting places to go that promote the economic, civic and

cultural growth of our city. • Enthusiastically support the incredible growth of High Point University as it becomes a major economic and cultural force in our city’s future. • Support efforts to keep the High Point Market healthy and strong into the far future and to improve the market experience for our out-of-town guests. • Seek to reduce governmental impediments to small business growth. • Focus on the proper role of local government as a means of evaluating spending programs and not waste taxpayer’s money. • Go to Raleigh during the next redistricting to demand more representation for High Point in the state Legislature. • Have the courage to stand by my principles and make hard decisions. • Work hard to create a High Point that our children will be proud to call home. JAY W. WAGNER is a candidate for mayor.

The Enterprise ran notices asking City Council candidates to submit guest columns about their candidacies. Nine candidates replied by the Oct. 1 deadline. Their comments will be printed on the Commentary page over the next few weeks. Today, are comments of two candidates for mayor.



s your mayor, I urge you to separate the facts from the fiction in preparation for voting in the municipal election. Over the next few weeks you will hear a lot of campaign rhetoric. Separating fact from fiction can be difficult when we all are concerned about the national economy and our personal financial security. The call for “change� is a political strategy that can sound appealing, but sometimes the change is quite different from what you were promised. The past two years have been difficult for your city government and for many of you. While there has not been a property tax increase in three years, revenues have decreased and so has the city’s budget. Expenses were cut by $16 million in this year’s budget, but essential services have been maintained. More budget cuts may be required. One candidate for mayor has said that High Point is “stagnant.� Nothing could be further from the truth. Even during a tough economy, there were 1,405 new jobs created or announced in 2009. In 2008 the number was 2,167, and in 2007, we announced 3,096 new jobs. Our economic development strategies work. We have diversified our local economy by attract-

ing new and expanding industries and businesses, and we are seeing new prospects interested in investing in High Point. More vacant buildings are now being leased. Certainly our population growth contradicts the “stagnant� opinion. Our population has topped 102,000 and our growth percentage exceeds both Greensboro and Winston-Salem. Our median household income tops both Greensboro and Winston by over $3,000. Our economic development efforts consistently garner national awards and recognition. Another statistic that blows away the “stagnant� claim is our decrease in violent crime. Violent crime in High Point has decreased 46 percent since 1997 while the population grew substantially in the same period. This significant reduction in violent crime has resulted from the strong working relationship between citizens and our police department. I am asking for your vote for another term as mayor. The next two years are going to the most challenging years we’ve faced in decades. The reason I am seeking another term is because this is not the time to have wholesale change in elected leadership. Our next City Council will have at least two new faces. Two incumbents have only served two years and a third has served two terms. The city has excellent staff, but this is not a time to turn government over to the staff while new folks figure out what’s going on. With your help and your vote, we will continue the strong legacy of leaving it better than we found it. That is my commitment to you. BECKY SMOTHERS is a candidate for mayor.

FDA warns of fractures with osteoporosis drugs WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Government health officials warned doctors and patients Wednesday about an increased risk of thigh fractures with a widely used group of bonestrengthening drugs. The Food and Drug Administration said patients taking

bisphosphonate drugs such as Fosamax and Boniva appear more likely to suffer a rare type of fracture of the femur. The fractures occurred just below the hip joint and make up less than 1 percent of all femur fractures. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know from clinical tri-

als that these drugs do prevent the common osteoporosis fractures,â&#x20AC;? said Dr. Sandra Kweder, FDAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deputy director for new drugs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fractures weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking about today are very unusual and rare.â&#x20AC;? In more than half the cases reported to the FDA, patients

experienced pain or aching of the groin before the fracture. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unclear whether the drugs directly trigger the problem, but the FDA said it is updating the drugsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; labels about the potential risk. Drugmakers will also be required to distribute pamphlets

about the risks to patients. Bisphosphonates work by slowing the loss of bone cells that lead to osteoporosis. Prescription drugs in that class include Merck & Co.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fosamax and Rocheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Boniva, as well as Warner Chilcottâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Actonel and Atelvia and Novartisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Reclast.

First lady Michelle Obama speaks at a campaign event for Sen. Russ Feingold, D-Wis., (right) Wednesday.

First lady hits campaign trail MILWAUKEE (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; First lady Michelle Obama said Wednesday that even though change hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come fast enough for some people, it would be a mistake for voters to return Republicans to power next month. Mrs. Obama, in Milwaukee to stump for Wisconsin Sen. Russ Feingold, tried to restore the same enthusiasm that surrounded President Barack Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inauguration early last year. She said people

were energized back then because they were hopeful, and that it was important for them to re-ignite their passion so the country can finish what voters started. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This election isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just about all that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve accomplished these past couple of years,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This election, Wisconsin, is about all we have left to do in the months and years ahead.â&#x20AC;? Feingold is facing an unexpected battle as he seeks a fourth term in

Police say mother killed young twin daughters

In US, Hispanics outlive whites, blacks by years

FAIRFIELD, Calif. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Authorities believe a Northern California woman stabbed her twin 3-year-old daughters to death before attempting to take her own life and setting fire to their apartment. Firefighters extinguished the blaze then found the childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bodies about 10:30 p.m. Tuesday inside the burned Fairfield home. Police say the mother, whose name has not been released, was also inside the apartment with what appeared to be self-inflicted stab wounds. She was taken to the hospital, where she is listed in stable but critical condition. Fairfield police Lt. Darrin Moody says neighbors who tried to get into the apartment during the fire found the windows and doors were locked.

ATLANTA (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; U.S. Hispanics can expect to outlive whites by more than two years and blacks by more than seven, government researchers say in a startling report that is the first to calculate Hispanic life expectancy in this country. The report released Wednesday is the strongest evidence yet of what some experts call the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hispanic paradoxâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; longevity for a population with a large share of poor, undereducated members. A leading theory is that Hispanics who manage to immigrate to the U.S. are among the healthiest from their countries. A Hispanic born in 2006 could expect to live about 80 years and seven months, the government estimates. Life expectan-

the Senate. Recent polls show his Republican challenger, businessman Ron Johnson, with a slight lead. Mrs. Obama lauded Feingold for supporting health care reform and campaign finance reform, and for fighting to create jobs and cut taxes. She also touted Feingoldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s maverick credentials, saying the president has mentioned how Feingold doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always agree with him.

cy for a white is about 78, and for a black, just shy of 73 years. Researchers have seen signs of Hispanic longevity for years. But until recently, the government didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t calculate life expectancy for Hispanics as a separate group; they were included among the black and white populations. The new report projecting future life spans is based on death certificates from 2006. By breaking out the longer-living Hispanics, the life expectancies for non-Hispanic whites and blacks both declined slightly, said the reportâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s author, Elizabeth Arias of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Hispanics are the largest, fastest growing minority in the United States.

Board to review bowling program in schools



Wake Forest University School of Law Professor Mark Hall was appointed to the membership of one of the federal advisory boards that is implementing a part of the new health care reform law. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act requires the secretary of Health and Human Services to establish the Consumer Operated and Oriented Plan Program and provides for an advisory board to the program.


GUILFORD COUNTY – In New York, where Bill Cornell of High Point Bowling Center knows about bowling, the sport is a high school letter sport, but it has not risen to that level in North Carolina. Many parents have found bowling to be a good sport for students who don’t like team sports or can’t make the football team. That’s why several of them and Cornell challenged the Guilford County Board of Education this week to allow middle and high school students to join bowling clubs, many of which offer college scholarship opportunities and competition. The board accepted the challenge to search budgets for $25,000 to pay student transportation to the bowling clubs. Sharon Ozment, district chief

‘We are 100 percent committed to do this. All we need is the transportation money.’ Bill Cornell High Point Bowling Center financial officer, will report to the board with the possibilities. “We are 100 percent committed to do this,” Cornell said. “All we need is the transportation money.” Parents and the four clubs in Greensboro and High Point worked for 12 months to bring a proposal to the board. “We had no idea what bowling could be for our son when he started,” said parent Lisa Wyrick. “It worked out to be very rewarding.” School board member Sandra Alexander said the district should provide options to keep students interested in school and graduating from high school. The bowling centers would offer bowling time and equipment use twice a month to students at no cost from November to February. Participants can take advantage of college scholarship money available to tournament winners. The funds are placed in education savings accounts, according to sponsors. “We need something for students who can not make the football team,” Alexander said.|888-3626


Water from Randleman Lake, shown here with its dam in the distance, was first drawn on Oct. 4.

New transition flows smoothly City integrates Randleman Lake water into system BY PAUL B. JOHNSON ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

RANDLEMAN – Water, water everywhere – now it’s time to get it to the right place at the right pressure. The five cities and towns in Guilford and Randolph counties that began receiving drinking water from the Randleman Regional Reservoir last week are integrating the new water source with their pre-existing distribution systems. The Piedmont Triad Regional Water Authority made history Oct. 4 when the agency pumped the first water from Randleman Lake, a drinking water source decades in the making. Water Authority Executive Director John Kime said the integration of the Randleman Lake water with systems in High Point, Jamestown, Archdale, Greensboro and Randleman has gone smoothly in general. The water authority is pumping 10 million gallons of water daily, Kime said.


City of High Point water service customers with questions about their water pressure and any changes they detect with the pressure can call the High Point Public Services Department at 883-3215 or the city’s customer service line at 883-3111. Kime provided a report to the authority board of directors during its meeting Wednesday at the new water treatment plant in Randolph County near Randleman. In High Point, the city is adjusting to the addition of Randleman Lake water, said Public Services Director Chris Thompson in a phone interview with The High Point Enterprise. Customers may or may not notice a water pressure change at their residence or business, depending on their location in the city and the pressure-reduc-

tion setting at their home or commercial building, Thompson said. “You actually are combining two systems. You are not coming out of one water plant anymore,” Thompson told the Enterprise. Randleman Lake water is being pumped 7 miles from a pumping station just to connect the water to the city’s distribution system, Thompson said. City of High Point engineers planned for the change with the Randleman Lake water and worked with a consultant to integrate the systems, Thompson said. The city installed valves to address shifts in water pressure, as well as building a 1-million-gallon storage tank off of U.S. 311 and booster pump station, he said. The city is receiving 2.68 million gallons of water daily from Randleman Lake, Thompson said, with 400,000 gallons diverted to Jamestown for its use. | 888-3528

Local home sales spike in September BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – Home sales in High Point performed beyond expectations in September, which is usually a slow month for the real estate market, according to local Realtors. There were 102 homes sold in the furniture city last month, up 23 percent from the same time last year when 83 homes were sold, according to a report from the Triad Multiple Listings Service.

Send information to: Who’s News, The High Point Enterprise, P.O. Box 1009, High Point, NC 27261. E-mail versions with an attached color photograph can be sent to

The amount of homes sold also increased by 4 percent from August, when 98 homes were sold. September marked the third consecutive monthto-month sales increase. “September is not typically one of our bigger months,” said Ken Wall, president of the High Point Regional Association of Realtors. “By now, you start to see a little wind down. The fact that we had a substantial increase in September is a good sign.” The increases especially are unique considering the

fact that the federal government’s first-time homebuyer tax credit was in place at this time last year, Wall said. “Normally, (comparing) year-to-year sales is a good indicator, but the tax credit increased last year’s sales artificially,” he said. “The fact that we were above tax credit levels is really exciting.” High Point fared better than overall Triad home sales, which dropped 18 percent from last year and 5 percent from August. The average home sale price in High Point

was $125,264, however, below the Triad’s $155,226 average. “Foreclosures and short sales continue to negatively affect average sale price,” said Ed Terry, HPRAR executive vice president. “These are directly tied to continued high unemployment and a lack of consumer confidence.” Pending units in the city saw a modest increase from 106 in August to 110 in September. By tracking pending units, real estate agents can gauge activity in the coming months, Wall said.


“The fact that we had an increase in pending units in September is exciting to see because it may point to a good October,” he said. Wall said he also believes that the industry, at least on a local level, is finally on a rebound. “A lot of people lump the Triad together, but, as you can see, High Point is running ahead of the curve not only locally, but also here in the state,” he said. | 888-3617

Gunshot wound discovered at funeral home GOLDSBORO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Police are investigating what they first thought was the natural death of a Goldsboro man after a funeral home found what looks like a gunshot wound in his body. The Wayne County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office says a friend found 62-year-old James Clifton Best dead in his home Tuesday. The friend called police and emergency



medical services, who said the death appeared to have been from natural causes. Workers at a funeral home, though, found what looks like a bullet wound to Bestâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s body. Police say there was no sign of a robbery or any other disturbance at his home. Bestâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s body has been taken to the Pitt County Medical Examinerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office for an autopsy.

Arguments wrap up in NC trooper death trial NEWTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Closing arguments are continuing in the trial of a Florida man charged with killing a North Carolina Highway Patrol trooper during a traffic stop. Multiple media outlets reported that prosecutors in the trial of Edwardo Wong Jr. of Ormond Beach, Fla., were expected to finish their arguments Wednesday. Defense attorneys will then make their case to jurors.

Autopsy: Ex-Olympian Pettigrew committed suicide CHAPEL HILL (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; An autopsy report says former Olympic sprinter and North Carolina assistant track coach Antonio Pettigrew committed suicide by overdosing on a drug common to sleeping pills. An autopsy report released Wednesday by the state medical examinerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office said the cause of death was diphenhydramine (dyfen-HYâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;-drah-meen) toxicity. Another report rules the case a suicide and the likely toxic agent as the sleep aid Unisom, which the National Institutes of Health says contains diphenhydramine. A bottle of the pills was found with the 42-year-old Pettigrew when his dead body was recovered from inside his locked car in August. Pettigrew admitted to doping and was stripped of the gold medal he won at the 2000 Sydney Olympics.

Authorities probe fatal fire FAYETTEVILLE (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Authorities in Cumberland County are investigating a house fire that killed a 40-year-old woman and her two grandchildren. The sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office said Monday that Angela Cox, 3-year-old Kayden Shambag and 20-month-old Chase Shambag were killed in their home in Godwin. Spokeswoman Debbie Tanna says the fire was reported shortly before 5 p.m. by a passerby who noticed smoke coming from the home. When firefighters arrived, all three victims were dead.

Wong is accused of first-degree murder in the death of Trooper David Shawn Blanton Jr., who was shot in 2008 during a traffic stop in Canton. Prosecutor Jim Moore told the jury Tuesday that Wong made several decisions in a four-minute traffic stop that began when Blanton checked the tags on Wongâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s truck and ended with Blanton being shot three times as he begged his killer to stop.

Lawsuit: Mentally ill US citizen wrongly deported attention of immigration agents. His lawyers acknowledge he eventually signed papers allowing his deportation, but argue he was too mentally disabled to understand what he was doing. He spent four months in Central America before his family helped him return. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The government failed to protect Mr. Lyttle, and individuals who lacked the proper training and oversight violated Mr. Lyttleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s constitutional rights,â&#x20AC;? the lawsuit said. The government does not have the right to deport U.S. citizens. The lawsuit also alleges discrimination because Lyttle is of Puerto Rican descent and looks Hispanic. A spokesperson for the U.S. Department of Justice said the department would review the complaint once the government is served and will respond in court. Spokespeople for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the

Department of Homeland Security did not have immediate comment on the lawsuit. The ordeal began after Lyttle, now 33, was charged with inappropriately touching a female orderly at a psychiatric hospital. In August 2008, he was sentenced to 100 days in prison. When Lyttle entered custody, â&#x20AC;&#x153;he reported his place of birth as Mexico City, Mexico,â&#x20AC;? said Keith Acree, spokesman for the North Carolina Department of Correction. A parallel federal lawsuit is being filed in North Carolina against immigration and prison officials there. Lyttleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lawyers wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make him available for an interview, but relatives have trouble believing heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d say he was from Mexico. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe that, honestly,â&#x20AC;? his 31-year-old brother David said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even make sense.â&#x20AC;?

Couple flirts with marriage Burr defends for a second time around


ear Abby: Do you have any data on the success of remarrying your ex-spouse? After being married to my husband for 25 years, we divorced due to his infidelity. We have been divorced for eight years and have had no contact. A family memberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funeral brought us face-toface again, and we have been in touch ever since. Neither of us has remarried or been in a relationship. We realize that we still have feelings for each other and have discussed remarrying in the future. I love him, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m wary of being hurt again. What do you think? Does remarrying your ex ever work? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Having Second (Time) Thoughts Dear Second Thoughts: It can work, provided youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re both willing to deal with the issues that broke you up in the first place. By that, I mean that you must be ready to examine whether there was something missing in the marriage that caused your husband to cheat, or whether he has a character flaw and would repeat his infidelity. I strongly recommend you do this with the assistance of a licensed marriage counselor. If you both go through the process, remarrying your ex could work. If

you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, you would be courting another dose of heartache.

Dear Abby: I have been Dear dating Abby â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nickâ&#x20AC;? for â&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  more than a year. We have both been married before â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Nickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a widower, and I am divorced. He says he cares for me, but doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel passionate about me, nor does â&#x20AC;&#x153;loveâ&#x20AC;? describe how he feels about me. We are intimate, are great friends and spend almost every day together. He treats me great, dates no one else and I can be myself around him. But am I cheating myself by accepting the status quo? Our intimate times arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t satisfying because of the lack of emotional ties, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m torn because I enjoy his company. I am confused. Any words of wisdom, Abby? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Not Quite Fulfilled

Dear Abby: I have been going through photo albums recently. Oh, the joy of seeing all those familiar faces again! However, when I turned the pictures over to verify peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last names and the dates they were taken, I was disappointed to find them blank. The vacations depicted in the photos were wonderful, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure I thought weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d never forget the year. But the years go by.... So this is a reminder to take the time to label the back of photos with pertinent information. Believe me, it will be appreciated in later years. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Shutterbug in Canon City, Colo.


Dear Not Quite Fulfilled: You and Nick are friends with benefits. Because you have no future with him beyond what you have now, and because intimacy with him is not satisfying because of his inability (or refusal) to emotionally commit â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have to

Dear Shutterbug: The situation you describe is one that countless people have experienced â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and something folks often donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think about until it is too late.

2008 vote

RALEIGH (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Republican Sen. Richard Burr is defending his vote in 2008 that opened up $350 billion in taxpayer dollars for a financial system bailout. Burrâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s challengers seized on the issue Wednesday night, claiming they wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have voted for the rescue plan despite the turmoil in financial markets. Libertarian candidate Mike Beitler called the measure â&#x20AC;&#x153;cronyismâ&#x20AC;? between big business and big government. Democratic challenger Elaine Marshall said she would have voted against it but didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t immediately explain why. Burr said the $350 billion was needed to shore up the financial system. He voted against an additional $350 billion that was later approved, saying that money led to too much government intervention in private business.

ATLANTA (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A mentally disabled U.S. citizen who spoke no Spanish was deported to Mexico with little but a prison jumpsuit after immigration agents manipulated him into signing documents allowing his removal, a lawsuit filed Wednesday alleges. His lawyers say the agents ignored records showing his Social Security number, while prison officials wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell concerned relatives what happened. The lawsuit filed in federal court in Atlanta by the American Civil Liberties Union seeks damages from the federal government and people ranging from Obama administration officials to immigration agents. It also asks for a jury trial. Mark Lyttle was serving prison time in North Carolina for a misdemeanor offense in 2008 when prison officials say he gave Mexico as his place of birth, drawing the

Most zoo visitors are surprised to learn that chimpanzeesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; closest relatives are humans, not gorillas or orangutans. Humans and chimps share 98.4 percent of DNA.




Gladys A Robinson



Chimps are more like us than you might know M aybe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because they look like us and act like us. Maybe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because they share 98.4 percent of our DNA. Or maybe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s simply that they are such fun to watch. Whatever the reason, chimpanzees remain one of the favorites and a mainstay for visitors at the North Carolina Zoo. The zooâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chimpanzee reserve is a spectacular halfacre habitat resembling the African forests, where troops of chimpanzees forage for food and socialize. Climbing trees and other activities within the exhibit keep the chimps challenged and entertained, and overlooks provide excellent viewing and educational displays for visitors. The zooâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s troop (as chimpanzee groups are called) totals 13 individuals, including adult males, females, juveniles and even a recently arrived infant. Together, they represent the largest chimpanzee troop in any U.S. zoo. The new baby, a female named Nori, arrived Aug. 2 and is the first of its species to be born at the zoo in 12 years. The first-time mother is a 16-year-old who was also born at the N.C. Zoo. Chimpanzees are native to only the 21 countries across the tropical forested region of equatorial Western and Central Africa to the Congo River. As recently as 50 years ago, there were believed to be about 1 million chimpanzees remaining in the wild. Today, primarily because of hunting and habitat loss, their number is estimated at about 150,000, with about 2,400 of that number in the United States. Of these



2,400, about 1,700 are used for biomedical testing, 200 are used for entertainment (cirZOO TALES cuses, acts, etc.) and 500 Tom live in zoos. Gillespie M o s t â&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  visitors are surprised to learn that chimpanzeesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; closest relatives are not gorillas or orangutans, but humans. Like humans, chimpanzees experience a long childhood, often nursing until they are 5 years old. In the wild, a chimpanzee will stay with its mother and siblings until it reaches 9-11 years and will usually reach adulthood at about 13-15. During this period, as in human adolescence, young chimpanzees learn a subtle and complex communication system of expressions, gestures and vocalizations. And, like humans, they learn proper respect and behavior from both their mothers and other troop members. By the time a baby chimp is 3, it is as strong as an adult human; by adulthood, it is about 5 to 8 times as strong. An adult chimpanzee can reach a weight of 150 pounds and can live to be 50. A common misconception is that chimpanzees are monkeys, which they are not. Although both are primates, the great apes (chimpanzees, gorillas, orangutans and bonobos) have no tail and walk using turned-down knuckles. Monkeys have prehensile (gripping) tails and walk with their palms down. From warfare to parent-

ing, chimpanzees and humans have much in common. Probably no other chimpanzee behavior is as anthropomorphic (humanlike) or has received more notoriety than their making and use of tools. It might be the skill of cracking a shell without pulverizing the nut, which can take years to master. Or it might be the skill of probing for honey and insects with twigs and stalks, which is a relatively simple task for them and picked up quickly. Other tool-use includes using wads of crumpled leaves as sponges for gathering water. And like humans, they pass these learned skills on to their young. Currently, the zooâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great-ape conservation efforts extend far beyond the boundaries of the zoo and are part of larger conservation programs focused in Africa. Teams led by the zooâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Curator of Conservation & Research Dr. Rich Bergl are using cuttingedge technology to save Africaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most endangered apes and supporting the research of some of Africaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most experienced field biologists. Visitors to the zoo can view and enjoy the parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chimpanzee troop and see how much more we share with chimpanzees than the 98.4 percent of our DNA.

The best time of year to fertilize your lawn is early fall.




uestion: I see all my neighbors out seeding and fertilizing so I am curious. Is this the right time to feed the lawn? I just moved here from Florida. Answer: For the cool season grass such as fescue, fall is the best time to both seed and fertilize. Lawns need a balanced diet, but more importantly, when you feed is even more important. The best time of the year to fertilize your lawn is early fall. Piedmont lawns are usually a combination of fescue and perhaps some Kentucky bluegrass. These cool season grasses grow rapidly in spring and fall. If you only fertilize once a year, the best time to do it is in the fall around Labor Day. But, if you recall we were still having 90 plus degree weather with no rain, so holding off might not have been a bad thing given the circumstances. In early fall, use a regular lawn fertilizer with N-P-K ratios of 3:1:2 or 4:1:2. For example, a bag may list 21-7-14 or 32-8-16. Amounts donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to be exact but should be similar to the suggested ratios. Hold off on applying winterizer fertilizers until November. A soil test will tell you how much (if any) phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) fertilizer your lawn needs. Kits can be picked up free of charge at many local garden centers, or contact your local

Cooperative Extension Office for more information. If tests indicate that no P or K is needed, use nitrogen fertilizer sources that contain little or no P and K. Fescue lawns in sun should receive 1 to 4 pounds per 1,000 square feet of actual nitrogen every year. A rate of 1 pound of nitrogen per 1,000 square feet is recommended for each fertilizer application. Most synthetic lawn fertilizers contain at least 40 percent slowrelease nitrogen. Slow-release nitrogen becomes available to the plant over a period of time depending on soil moisture, temperature, and microbial activity. The balance of the nitrogen is water soluble nitrogen, which is readily available for plant uptake. Natural organic fertilizers supply nitrogen in complex organic forms that are not immediately available to plants. They require warm, moist soils for microbial activity to release nitrogen. Water your lawn with a quarter to a half inch after spreading fertilizer to get the material into the ground where it can be used by plants. MASTER GARDENERS will answer questions on horticultural topics. Karen C. Neill, an urban horticulture extension agent, can be contacted at the N.C. Cooperative Extension, 3309 Burlington Road, Greensboro, NC 27405-7605, telephone (336) 3755876, e-mail, on the web at

In a fever over body temperature


ear Dr. Donohue: I have a question about body temperature. Normally, mine is under 97 F. I understand from my doctor that this is fine, because the normal of 98.6 is an average, with some people having a lower and some a higher temperature. My question is: At what temperature do I have a fever? When I have a temperature of 99.5, I generally feel quite ill. My doctor says that is not considered a fever. A “fever” is a temperature of 100 or higher. Isn’t a temperature of 100 for me equivalent to a temperature of 102 for someone whose body temperature is the typical 98.6? – Anon.



Body temperature fluctuates throughout the day and depends on what the person is doing. Activity increases body temperature. Low temperature normally occurs around 6 a.m., and higher ones between 4 p.m and 6 p.m. Are you taking oral body temperatures? Oral readings always register lower than other sites for taking temperature because of mouth breathing. Some people do have a body temperature consistently lower than 98.6 (37 C), and others have one consistently higher. These people have thermostats set at a different level from the rest of us. In people whose temperature is closer to 98.6














most of the time, a temperature of 100 (37.8) is considered abnormal and a feHEALTH ver. That’s 1.4 degrees Dr. Paul above 98.6 Donohue (0.8 degree ■■■ above 37). If you are taking your temperature correctly and it truly does hover around 97 most of the time, a fever for you would be 97 plus 1.4: 98.4 Body temperature is only one sign of illness. Other signs are just as reliable – a hacking cough, feeling done in, feeling warmer than normal, having diarrhea, having a cough, having a headache, having a faster heartbeat. You can tell when you’re sick without ever using a thermometer. Dear Dr. Donohue: My stomach doesn’t tolerate fresh fruits or vegetables. Are frozen or canned ones just as beneficial? – J.P. After being picked, fruits and vegetables are frozen quickly – more quickly than the produce that’s transported to a grocery store. Frozen fruits and vegetables retain their vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. Canned foods also are processed rapidly after they’re picked. They,

too, keep much of what nature put in them. If you raise your own fruits and vegetables, pick and then eat them right away, you are getting the most nutrition possible. Not many of us eat in this fashion. Dear Dr. Donohue: Three years ago, my 59year-old niece was a funloving, talkative, happygo-lucky person. Today she acts as if she is in a trance. She doesn’t smile, and answers you with “yes,” “no” or “I don’t know.” She has had all kinds of tests. Physically, she is OK. She’s been told she has a chemical imbalance. What causes such a turnaround? She sees a psychiatrist and is on medication. Is there any hope for her? – M.S. Your niece is depressed. In the modern view, depression comes from an upset in the normal production of brain messenger chemicals. Their names are serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine. That’s the chemical imbalance your niece has. Medicines can restore the balance. Usually, medicines are combined with sessions with a mental health professional like a psychiatrist. I can’t deny that three years is an awfully long time for a depression to linger. Perhaps your niece would benefit from a change of medicines, treatment and doctor.

WINSTON-SALEM – The Wake Forest men’s basketball team certainly faces a challenge in getting ready for the season. It’s one the Demon Deacons are ready to tackle. Wake Forest lost over 70 percent of its scoring from last season, returning just four scholarship lettermen and one starter. But the Deacs are optimistic about who return and what they add in five freshmen and head coach Jeff Bzdelik. “You’ll just have to watch us play,” said sophomore guard C.J. Harris, smiling, responding to low outside expectations. “We’re out here going hard, doing everything we need to do. We’re lifting hard, practicing hard. If we keep doing that and listen to our coaches, we’ll be all right this season,” Bzdelik enters his first season with the Demon Deacons after three

seasons as head coach at Colorado and two as head coach of Air Force. Prior to that he spent three seasons as head coach of the Denver Nuggets. Bzdelik The success he had in building those two college programs and his experience in the NBA gives him and his players a boost in optimism as they open practice Friday and prepare for their season-opener at home Nov. 12 against Stetson. “We all know that we’ve lost a lot of firepower,” said Bzdelik, who went 3-2 against ACC teams at Air Force. “We have some talent. Yes, it’s very young, and, yes, it’s very inexperienced. But it’s exciting for me and it’s exciting for them. “Sometimes with youth, you’re just clueless and you just go out and play and you become fearless. I know I need to be patient, but I just want them to be fearless and

play together. We have enough to win some games, but how soon depends on how they mature collectively.” After losing six of the eight players who averaged more than 10 minutes per game, the Demon Deacons are far from last year’s team that went 20-11 overall and finished fifth in the ACC at 9-7. That hasn’t dispelled any of their drive to make the best of their fresh start, despite losing four seniors to graduation, forward Al-Farouq Aminu to the NBA draft and center Tony Woods, who was released from the team Monday. “We don’t have too much on-court experience,” sophomore forward Ari Stewart said. “But we all know what it takes.” Wake Forest has been nicked by a handful of injuries in the preseason. Freshman guard Tony Chennault has suffered from a sore foot and was wearing a boot on his left foot prior to Wednesday’s workout.

Freshman guard J.T. Terrell has a broken right hand and, although his cast his kept him from shooting, he has been able to practice. Stewart suffered a concussion in a workout in late September but said he should be cleared to practice in the next couple days. If injuries aren’t a major factor during the regular season, then Wake Forest has the talent and will gain the experience, Bzdelik said. The biggest thing missing so far is leadership. As the pieces come together, however, that will be the largest contributor to how well it fares. But right now, it’s just about improving as a team. “We want to get better every day,” Bzdelik said. “Wins and losses will take care of themselves. If we get better with a young, talented team, we’ll see what the results are.” | 888-3526

Pearson, Petty among picks for NASCAR Hall CHARLOTTE (AP) — David Pearson finally received his spot in the NASCAR Hall of Fame on Wednesday, earning the most votes a year after the 105-race winner was surprisingly excluded from the inaugural class. The Silver Fox received 94 percent of the vote and was the first of the five inductees called by NASCAR chairman Brian France. He immediately received a standing ovation from those gathered in the Great Hall of the Hall of Fame. He insisted he wasn’t upset that he had not made it in with the first class. “There was no sting about the first place, a lot of people thought there was, but I knew three weeks before I wasn’t going in,” Pearson said. Considered the only “lock” of this class, Pearson said he was never certain he’d be elected Wednesday. Not so for three-time champion Darrell Waltrip, who knew by the time the third name was called that he had not made the cut this year. Three-time Daytona 500 winner Bobby Allison, whose 84 wins are tied for third on the victory list, was the second inductee announced and was followed by Lee Petty, a 54-race winner and patriarch of a Petty Enterprises. The other slots went to two-time champion Ned Jarrett and pioneer car owner Bud Moore.



Talk about a seamless transition. Less than 48 hours after Bobby Cox wrapped up his managing career, the Atlanta Braves introduced his protege, former Florida manager Fredi Gonzalez, to take over the job Wednesday. The decision was widely expected since Gonzalez was fired in June by the Marlins. Cox had announced more than a year ago this would be his final season, and his two-decade-long tenure ended with a loss to San Francisco in the NL division series Monday night. Cox held a farewell news conference at Turner Field, reminiscing about a career that left him as the fourth winningest manager in baseball history and a likely Hall of Famer. As soon as he was done, the Braves introduced Gonzalez as their new manager.

Country Quayle has a nice twang to it BY SAN QUENTIN QUAYLE COUNTRY PICKIN’ GOLD

The Grand Ole Opry celebrated its 85th birthday last week, which is only fitting considering I was pickin’, grinnin’ and winnin’ my way to a stellar 11-1 record. Somebody crank up the banjos and steel guitars, because I’m making sweet prep football prognosticating music this season. The “Nashville Sound” may be legendary, but so is a 77.5 percent success clip for yours truly. I’m producing more smash hits than Conway, Loretta, George and Tammy combined. Without futher ado, here’s the hoedown, er, lowdown on this week’s picks:

TRINITY AT T.W. ANDREWS The Red Raiders make (Taylor) Swift work of the Bulldogs. ... T.W. Andrews 34, Trinity 13.

HP CENTRAL AT PARKLAND It’ll be “Heartbreak USA” for the Mustangs. ... High Point Central 28, Parkland 14.

GLENN AT SW GUILFORD Considering this week’s theme, how can I go against the Cowboys? ... Southwest Guilford 21, Glenn 19.

THOMASVILLE AT EAST DAVIDSON Although they won’t have to travel far, the Bulldogs remain “King Of The Road.” ... Thomasville 35, East Davidson 7.

HPCA AT CHRIST SCHOOL The Cougars have “Heartaches By The Number” – on the scoreboard. ... Christ School 21, High Point Christian Academy 14.

BISHOP AT SURRY CENTRAL The Villains “Walk The Line” and burn the Golden Eagles in a “Ring Of Fire.” ... Bishop McGuinness 31, Surry Central 20.

LEDFORD AT SW RANDOLPH Farmer seems like the perfect place for country music. It’ll be less than hospitable for the Panthers. ... Southwestern Randolph 28, Ledford 13.


pick against the Tigers. ... Ragsdale 27, Northwest Guilford 21.

NE GUILFORD AT S. GUILFORD To quote the classic Garth Brooks song, “The Thunder Rolls.” And so does the Storm. ... Southern Guilford 26, Northeast Guilford 17.

ATKINS AT WHEATMORE Chet Atkins was a Country Music Hall of Famer. That’s good enough for me. ... Atkins 25, Wheatmore 16.

WEEKLY SPECIAL Good ole’ country music over the airwaves (you can’t beat it!). Last week: 11-1 (91.7 percent) Season to date: 69-20 (77.5 percent)




ast Carolina football certainly knows how to make points, pro and con. The Pirates have shown a flair for high-scoring affairs so far this season, often piling up points in dramatic fashion. ECU opened the season with an epic 51-49 Conference USA victory over Tulsa. That game featured 12 lead changes and more than 1,110 yards of offense. The Pirates won on a 33-yard Hail Mary pass from Dominique Davis to Justin Jones as time expired. The next game saw the Pirates pound

Memphis 49-27, followed by a pair of nonconference losses – 49-27 at Virginia Tech and 42-17 at North Carolina – that were far closer than the scores indicate. Toss in Saturday’s 44-43 CUSA win at Southern Miss that saw the Pirates rally from a 20-0 first-quarter deficit and you see just how explosive Pirate games have been. Shiver me timbers indeed. East Carolina stands 3-2 overall and 3-0 in league play. The two-time defending CUSA champions

have won 14 of their last 15 league contests. With high-scoring N.C. State set to visit Greenville for a noon kickoff on Saturday, expect more fireworks. The Pirates average 36 points per game while surrendering 41.8 ppg. The Wolfpack scores at a 37.5 ppg clip while allowing 22.2 ppg. I’ll be shocked if this one winds up 6-3. Look for a plethora of points again this week.

Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s run impresses Edwards CMS SCHEDULE


CONCORD - Carl Edwards knows at what level a team must operate to challenge Jimmie Johnson in the Chase for the Championship. Edwards did it once in 2008. He scored nine victories that year to Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seven, and matched Johnson threeto-three in wins in the Chase. But, electrical troubles at Charlotte Motor Speedway put Edwards in a hole and he eventually fell 69 points short as Johnson won his third championship in row. Edwards hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t won since then. Johnson is full stride toward winning a fifth consecutive title, holding a 35-point lead over Denny Hamlin and just four drivers within 85 points as the tour returns to Charlotte for Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 500-miler with qualifying scheduled tonight. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just one thing that they do,â&#x20AC;? Edwards said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They just have an ability to do well at everything within a sport. They qualify well. They have good pit stops. They make good strategic calls from the box. Jimmie does a very good job driving, and I think that the most

amazing thing about it is that they have just been able to do it over such a long time period. â&#x20AC;&#x153; In 2008, our team ... went head-tohead with Jimmie and we lost the cham-

pionship by just a little bit to him, but I felt then, I felt that, okay, I understand the level that he is at and we can beat him. The problem is that we went into 2009 and our team was not able to perform at that level, and his was, again. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just how they perform, because we all perform very well, sometimes. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the fact that they are able to do it over a five- or six-year time span; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spectacular.â&#x20AC;? Foiled by electrical issues Sunday at Auto Club Speedway, Edwards is in seventh place and trails Johnson by 162 points. He isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t throwing in the towel quite yet, hoping Johnson will stumble. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You know, statistically or mathematically, anyone could be leading the Chase in three races. So we just have to keep that in mind and going forward. And racing is a very, very humbling sport. You can do everything right and you can have things not go your way. But the only way to make sure you have success is to do everything right and hope for the best.â&#x20AC;? If history holds, Johnson wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stumble. His victory from the pole was his third Chase victory at CMS, where he

Giants tweak pitching


Texas Rangers grounds crew employee Don Crymes puts the final touches on the AL championship series logo at Texas Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, Texas. The Rangers will host the New York Yankees on Friday and Saturday in the first two games of the series.

ALCS: Old hands vs. tenderfoot Rangers ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Now that the Texas Rangers have finally won a postseason series for the first time, they get to play the team that has won more than any other. Bring on the New York Yankees, who have 27 World Series titles and 40 pennants. “We feel like we can play baseball with anyone,” Rangers manager Ron Washington said Wednesday. “We only can blaze our own trail right now, and every time we do something that’s good, it adds to the history of the Texas Rangers.” Game 1 of the AL championship series is Friday night at Rangers Ballpark. Things are much different for the Rangers than in the last half of the 1990s, when in their only three previous playoff appearances they were knocked out in the first round by the Yankees. New York went on to win the World Series each time, and has a nine-game postseason winning streak against Texas. “This is a different group of guys, and they have a lot of confidence,” Washington said.


NEW YORK (AP) — A.J. Burnett got on the mound and plunked Greg Golson on an arm. Then he whacked Austin Kearns. Burnett’s simulated game was a hit — twice — on Wednesday as he prepared for his start against Texas in the AL championship series. “It’s different when they’re our guys. They know I didn’t mean to do it. But it’s still not a good feeling,” Burnett said.

“We’re not shocked by anything. We’re here because we believe and belong here.” These Rangers can run. They can pitch. And they can still slug. Texas clinched the AL division series against Tampa Bay with a 5-1 victory in Game 5 on Tuesday night. Twice, runners scored from second base on infield grounders. Nelson Cruz stole third with two outs in another inning and scored on a throwing

error, and ace left-hander Cliff Lee finished a six-hitter after Ian Kinsler’s two-run homer in the top of the ninth. “We’re confident. We don’t care who we go up against,” said Michael Young, the longest-tenured Rangers player in his 10th season. “We know we’re good and we believe in ourselves.” New York and Texas split eight meetings during the regular season, but the Rangers won four of five at home with a three-game sweep last month. The AL West champions have home-field advantage over the wild-card Yankees in the league championship series. “The three games we played them here in September,” Washington said, “proved that we could play with those guys.” New York worked out Wednesday at Yankee Stadium, trying to stay sharp four days after wrapping up its division series with a three-game sweep of Minnesota. The Twins, like Texas, have lost nine straight postseason games against New York. “We played the Yankees well and so I think that we can meet

the Yankees head on and compete with them. Normally in this league you pretty much have to go through New York if you’re going to go somewhere past this,” said Rangers president Nolan Ryan, the Hall of Fame pitcher who became part-owner this summer. “So, I think our guys anticipated that and I think they’re ready for it.” Texas players got the day off, but there was still plenty of activity at Rangers Ballpark. Colby Lewis, the scheduled starter for Game 2, tossed a few balls in the outfield with his 3 1/2-year-old son. Stadium workers painted AL championship series logos on the field in foul territory along the first- and third-base lines. Outside, some fans were already lined up near a box office waiting for World Series tickets to go on sale Sunday. The Rangers have to get past the Yankees for those tickets to be useful. Lee was acquired from Seattle on July 9 for games just like Tuesday night, when the lefthander struck out 11.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Giants manager Bruce Bochy is planning to tweak his rotation for the NL championship series, moving up left-hander Jonathan Sanchez to go Game 2 against the Philadelphia Phillies following ace Tim Lincecum. Bochy said he would do so to break up the two right-handers — Lincecum and Matt Cain, who now is set to pitch Game 3 back in San Francisco on Tuesday. “It gives Matt the home opener here,” Bochy said Wednesday before his team’s workout at AT&T Park on an unseasonably hot 90-degree fall day in the Bay Area. “That’s the way we’re leaning right now. We have confidence in both of them but we really think to break up the righties and lefties there is a better way to go.” Game 1 is Saturday night at Citizens Bank Park with the highly anticipated matchup between Lincecum and Roy Halladay, who pitched a no-hitter in the division series. “It’s going to be fun,” Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval said. “They have one of the best pitchers in the National League and we have one of the best pitchers on our team.”

Thomas provides another project at receiver for Panthers CHARLOTTE (AP) — Devin Thomas is known for appearing in a music video with Fantasia, for his modeling work and for a picture that made the rounds on Twitter showing him sleeping in a Washington Redskins film room. One thing Thomas hasn’t done is become a reliable NFL receiver. He’ll get another shot with the desperate and winless Carolina Panthers. A week after the Panthers waived receiver Dwayne Jarrett, a disappointing former secondround pick whose work ethic was questioned, they’ve replaced him with another disappoint-

ing former second-round pick whose work ethic has been questioned. Thomas is even wearing Jarrett’s old No. 80. Oh, and Charlotte is where Fantasia lives these days. But the 23year-old Thomas insists his focus is not on modeling or music, but football and proving Redskins coach Mike Shanahan wrong for waiving him last week. “I think I was in the doghouse just because of that situation,” Thomas said Wednesday. “It wasn’t because of my skills or my ability to run routes or knowing the playbook.” Just like Jarrett, the 45th overall pick in 2007

who was let go following his second arrest for a driving while impaired charge in three years, Thomas was accused of being a bad route-runner and not knowing the plays after being the 34th pick in 2008 out of Michigan State. The 6-foot-2 Thomas managed just 40 catches for 445 yards and three touchdowns with the Redskins, scarily similar to Jarrett’s 35 catches for 428 yards and one TD. When the old-school Shanahan took over in Washington in the offseason, he was turned off by Thomas’ effort on the field and his modeling and music video work of it.

Transgender woman sues LPGA SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Lana Lawless, a former police officer who underwent a sex change operation five years ago, is challenging the LPGA’s ban on transgender players. She filed a federal lawsuit late Tuesday in San Francisco federal court claiming the LPGA’s “female at birth” requirement for competitors violates a California civil rights law. Lawless is seeking to prevent the LPGA from holding tournaments in the state until the organization changes its policy to admit transgender players. She is also seeking unspecified damages. Lawless, 57, also sued three LPGA sponsors and the Long Drivers of America, which holds the annual women’s longdrive golf championship.

Lawless won the event in 2008 with a 254-yard drive but was barred from competing this year after organizers adopted the LPGA’s gender rules. “I am, in all respects, legally, and physically female,” Lawless said in a statement Wednesday. “The state of California recognizes me as such and the LPGA should not be permitted to come into California and blatantly violate my rights. I just

want to have the same opportunity to play professional golf as any other woman.” LPGA spokesman David Higdon declined to comment because the organization hasn’t seen the lawsuit. A spokesman for the Long Drivers of America also declined to comment. Lawless said the LPGA is one of the few athletic organizations to bar transgender competitors.

States launch foreclosure probe WASHINGTON (AP) — Officials in 49 states and the District of Columbia have launched a joint investigation into allegations that mortgage companies mishandled documents and broke laws in foreclosing on hundreds of thousands of homeowners. The states’ attorneys general and bank regulators will examine whether mortgage company employees made false statements or prepared documents improperly. Alabama was the only state not to join the investigation. Attorneys general have taken the lead in responding to a nationwide scandal that’s called into question the accuracy and legitimacy of documents that lend-



JPMorgan exits tracking system NEW YORK (AP) — JPMorgan Chase’s CEO says the bank has stopped using the electronic mortgage tracking system used by major financial institutions. Lawyers have argued in court proceedings that the system is unable to accurately prove ownership of mortgages.

Refinancing requests climb 21 percent NEW YORK (AP) — Applications for mortgage refinancings jumped last week, while purchase applications fell. The Mortgage Bankers Association said Wednesday overall applications rose 14.6 percent from a week earlier, driven by a 21 percent increase in applications to refinance home loans. Applications for loans to purchase homes, however, tumbled 8.5 percent from a week earlier.

Wal-Mart CEO expects positive sales NEW YORK (AP) — The CEO of Wal-Mart Stores expects positive U.S. sales in the fourth quarter this year as it works to turn around several quarters of sluggish sales. CEO Mike Duke made the remark at an investor meeting in Rogers, Ark., on Wednesday. Executives from Wal-Mart’s U.S., international, and Sam’s Club units are outlining plans to improve growth at the meeting.


ers relied on to evict people from the homes. Employees of four large lenders have acknowledged in depositions that they signed off on foreclosure documents without reading them. The allegations raise the possibility that foreclosure proceedings nationwide could be subject to legal challenge. Some foreclosures could be overturned. More than 2.5 million homes have been lost to foreclosure since the recession started in December 2007, according to RealtyTrac Inc. The state officials said they intend to use their investigation to fix the problems that surfaced in the mortgage industry. “This is not simply about a glitch in paperwork,” said

Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller, who is leading the probe. “It’s also about some companies violating the law and many people losing their homes.” Ally Financial Inc.’s GMAC Mortgage Unit, Bank of America and JPMorgan Chase & Co. already have halted some questionable foreclosures. Other banks, including Citigroup Inc. and Wells Fargo & Co. have not stopped processing foreclosures, saying they did nothing wrong. In a joint statement, the officials said they would review evidence that legal documents were signed by mortgage company employees who “did not have personal knowledge of the facts asserted in the documents.”

SEC proposes trading rules for banks WASHINGTON (AP) — Federal regulators on Wednesday proposed to cap the stake that banks and other market players can own in exchanges where the complex investments blamed for hastening the financial crisis are traded. The Securities and Exchange Commission voted to seek public comment on the proposed rules, which are designed to prevent conflicts of interest in the operations of clearinghouses and exchanges for derivatives. The rules were proposed under the new financial overhaul law enacted this summer. It calls for new oversight of derivatives, traded in an opaque $600 trillion market worldwide. Under the proposal, firms that trade derivatives wouldn’t be able to own more than 20 percent of the clearinghouses, exchanges and other trading venues. The value of derivatives

hinges on an underlying investment or commodity — such as currency rates, oil futures or interest rates. The derivative is designed to reduce the risk of loss from the underlying asset. The SEC proposal applies to clearinghouses and exchanges for derivatives based on securities like stocks and bonds. It is similar to one put forward recently by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, covering clearinghouses and exchanges for other kinds of derivatives. Derivatives trading is dominated by about 20 big banks worldwide, many of them Wall Street firms. And five big U.S. banks — JPMorgan Chase & Co., Goldman Sachs Group Inc., Bank of America Corp., Citigroup Inc. and Wells Fargo & Co. — account for 97 percent of the total derivatives held by the U.S. banking industry.

Apple tops $300 a share for first time NEW YORK (AP) — Apple’s shares topped $300 for the first time Wednesday morning as stellar iPad sales and a planned expansion into China continued to give investors high hopes for the iPhone maker’s already healthy prospects. Shares of Apple Inc. climbed $2.44 to $300.98 in morning trading after rising to a record $301.72 earlier in the session. This gives Apple a market capitalization of about $275 billion, above tech heavyweights such as Mi-

crosoft Corp., Google Inc. and Hewlett-Packard Co. Apple has been on a tear lately, with sales of the iPad tablet surpassing expectations. Investors also have high hopes for Apple’s push into China, where the iPhone maker is looking to open 25 retail stores next year. Mounting speculation about a Verizon iPhone as soon as 2011 is also adding to Apple’s appeal. Currently, the iPhone is only available from AT&T Inc. in the U.S.

Earnings reports boost stocks NEW YORK (AP) — Better than expected earnings reports from three corporate bellwethers helped push stocks to their fourth day of gains on Wednesday, even though the companies themselves didn’t get to enjoy the rally. Intel Corp. and JP Morgan Chase & Co. both fell by more than a percent despite announcing double-digit gains in profits. Their earnings reports, however, contained nuggets of hopeful news on the direction of the broader economy. JPMorgan’s CEO Jamie Dimon predicted credit card defaults are likely to fall next quarter, which helped push shares of American Express up 1.9 percent and MasterCard up 3.9 percent. Intel predicted sales should remain consistent through the end of the year as customers switch from back-to-school shopping to the holiday season. That contributed to gains in Dell, which was up 1.5 percent for the day, and Microsoft, which was up 2 percent. CSX Corp, one of the country’s largest railroad companies, saw a big jump in the shipment of cars and trucks. “They were assuring,” Andrew Ross, partner at First New York Securities, said of the earnings reports. “But they weren’t inspiring, or disrupting.” The Dow rose 75.68, or 0.7 percent, to 11,096.08. The broad Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 8.33, also 0.7 percent, to 1,178.10.

EU struggles to prevent new crisis BRUSSELS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; After months of agonizing, leaders of the European Union are closing in on new oversight rules to ensure sound finances, prevent another government debt crisis and restore the credibility of the euro. But leaders remain divided on key issues. And some analysts argue that even the latest proposals canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fix the blocâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fundamental problems. EU finance ministers will try to sort out two different proposals for stricter rules to back up the euro when they meet Monday and Tuesday in Luxembourg, in hopes of a decision at a summit by heads of state and government Oct. 28-29. The proposals spell out sanctions for countries who run up deficits and debts that are too big â&#x20AC;&#x201D; overspending that could undermine the shared euro currency, as Greece did when it almost went bankrupt in May and had to be bailed out by eurozone governments and the International Monetary Fund. A key thorny question will be whether the European Commission, the EUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s executive arm, will get greater powers to monitor troubling developments in individual countriesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; economies â&#x20AC;&#x201D; such as trade imbalances or real estate bubbles â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and to fine countries that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t follow its recommendations. In its proposals announced last month, the commission gave itself exactly those powers.

Currington runs through life at own speed CAITLIN R. KING ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER


ASHVILLE, Tenn. – Billy Currington has a no-rush policy. He doesn’t have to say it or put it in a contract: It’s written in his DNA. The 36-year-old country singer from the Georgia coast recently released his fourth album, “Enjoy Yourself,” and the leadoff single, “Pretty Good At Drinkin’ Beer,” hit the No. 1 spot at the same time for his sixth chart topper. It’s a sign that he should continue to listen to his internal clock. Some of the songs he chose for the new album he found years ago, but they just didn’t feel right for a project until now. “I just kept stashing them to the side,” he said in a recent interview. When it came time to record the album, he had about

30 tracks. He eventually narrowed them to 10, including a cover of the Dave Barnes song, “Until You,” and one he co-wrote, “Bad Day of Fishing.” Currington says each track reflects a different aspect of his personality. “I definitely would never record a song that didn’t fit me,” he said. Currington is opening shows on Carrie Underwood’s 46-city tour this fall: “It’s a blessing because she’s so huge as an artist and brings so many people to the table that we’ve never seen, we’ve never played in front of.” But life on the road means that he has no real home. Instead, he hops around to different parts of the country without committing to one location, whether it’s Hawaii, Georgia or Nashville: “Everywhere is just ‘Rent a place, rent an apartment, rent a whatever.’ ” Home will be a tour bus

for the next few months. When he’s out on the road, Currington stays in shape by running 30 minutes to an hour each day. He will usually take off for a run with one of his band members in the middle of the day. “Wherever we’re at, whatever town, we just run the town and come back. It’s pretty simple,” he said. “No maps, no GPS, we just go. We always seem to find our way back.” Musically, Currington is confident he’s on the right track for success. He’s just in no hurry to get to his ultimate destination. Right now he’s content to enjoy the journey. “What you see out there is pretty much what I am, very laid back,” he said. “In my own way I’m crazy, but I have fun with it. I love life. I love people, love what I do, love my family, and I’m always thankful for what I got.”

New children’s TV channel debuts DAVID BAUDER AP TELEVISION WRITER


EW YORK – The Discovery Kids channel disappeared last weekend and in its place appeared The Hub, a new television network backed by the toy maker Hasbro that is focusing on a 6-year-old to 11-year-old audience. The Hub debued at 10 a.m. Sunday and gave viewers a sampling of some of the programming it will be rolling out over the next six months. “This is the last great opportunity to launch a great kids’ business,” said Margaret Loesch, the network’s CEO. The veteran television executive helped start up Fox’s children’s business. Discovery Kids is seen in about 60 million U.S. homes with cable and satellite, slightly more than half the homes with TV. Unhappy with the


Musician Christina Milian and daughter Violet at The Hub TV Launch event Oct. 1 in Los Angeles. ratings, Discovery Communications accepted $300 million from Hasbro Inc. last year to start over in a joint venture. It’s virtually impossible these days for any new network to start with that many homes unless

it is taking the space of an old one. Hasbro will contribute “Transformers Prime” and “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic,” programs based on characters that are also Hasbro toys.

Other shows include Jim Henson’s “Fraggle Rock,” ‘’Meerkat Manor,” ‘’Men in Black,” ‘’Strawberry Shortcake Berry Bitty Adventures,” ‘’The Twisted Whiskers Show” and “Batman Beyond.” Early testing showed enthusiasm for “Family Game Night,” a primetime show designed to bring youngsters and their parents together to watch competition in games such as “Sorry” and “Operation.” Loesch said she believed popular children’s’ networks Nickelodeon and The Disney Channel are starting to offer more programming aimed at a teen and tween audience, leaving a chance to gain a foothold among younger viewers. “I think they’ll be successful,” said Derek Baine, a senior analyst at SNL Kagan, who focuses on cable network businesses. “They have a lot


of money behind them and a lot of powerful brand names in Hasbro to leverage.” The Hub can’t pay as much in licensing fees to producers of children’s series, but will compete by allowing the creators to maintain ownership of their shows, Loesch said. That’s often a sticking point in deals with the larger children’s’ networks, she said. Baine said he saw that less as a strategy and more a cost-saving effort; Discovery has found that launching Oprah Winfrey’s new network was more expensive than originally planned. Hasbro’s involvement has raised concerns about exposing the young audience to too much commercialism. Loesch said it’s the same issue at Nick and Disney. “When you see what we’re doing, we will pass any smell test,” she said.

NEW YORK (AP) – Former President George W. Bush’s memoir will arrive next month with a huge first printing and an e-book with multimedia extras, Crown Publishers said in a statement Thursday. “Decision Points” will have a print run of 1.5 million copies, the same number given six years ago for Bill Clinton’s “My Life,” which went on to sell more than 2 million copies, far greater than for most presidential memoirs. Crown, an imprint of Random House Inc., also announced that an enhanced e-book edition will be available, featuring video highlights of Bush’s presidency, photographs not included in the hardcover book and personal correspondence. “Decision Points,” which comes out Nov. 9, a week after Election Day, will not be a conventional narrative, but a reflection of important decisions and moments in Bush’s life, including the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and the war in Iraq. Bush left office two years ago with low approval ratings and skepticism among publishers about the appeal of a memoir by him, but Republicans are looking to make substantial gains in next month’s elections. A month before publication, “Decision Points” is already in the top five on Barnes & Noble’s website and the top 200 on “We believe there is a broad and large readership nationwide waiting to read President Bush’s book and that this readership will be fully engaged by what he has written,” said Crown publisher Tina Constable.

Thursday, October 14, 2010 CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Stacy Keibler, 31; Usher, 32; Natalie Maines, 36; Roger Moore, 83 HAPPY BIRTHDAY: You cannot move forward positively unless you do so with a clean slate. Get rid of the clutter in your life and your home. Be creative in the way you approach your personal situation and your living arrangements. Progress will be made if you are moderate and travel light. Your numbers are 3, 12, 16, 21, 27, 33, 40 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Make your decisions based on sound advice and only after you have given plenty of thought to the possible outcome. Partnerships can go either way, depending on your diplomacy. Respond cordially. ★★ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Your current status can be enhanced through a position you apply for or the company you keep. Don’t let your emotions get in the way of a business decision. Plan something special with your current partner. ★★★★★ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): There is money to be made but you mustn’t make purchases based on speculation. Take it one step at a time and you will acquire greater stability in both your personal and financial lives. Share your ideas or partner with someone who can contribute to your game plan. ★★★ CANCER (June 21-July 22): You will attract negative and positive people. Filter through what’s being offered and asked for and consider who can come through for you. Emotional matters will escalate and additional burdens may be placed on you. ★★★ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Put love on hold and sort out what you are doing professionally. Once you have your finances in order, you can approach the people you care about regarding your plans. Having a concrete idea to work with will make the difference. ★★★ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Mistakes made can sometimes be a saving grace. Rely on past experience to get you through any confusion or uncertainty regarding a friend or dependent. You can gain ground if you look at the positives in your life instead of the negatives. ★★★★★ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don’t let criticism stop you from getting things done.

The support you get will help you get back on track. ★★ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Love is on the rise and a change in attitude will help you express your feelings, enabling you to move forward personally. Make alterations to your surroundings that will improve your work and emotional well-being. ★★★★ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Someone may throw you a curve ball and you will have to act fast to avoid being questioned about something you aren’t prepared to talk about. Honesty will be your only way out. An old relationship can disrupt your life if you let it. ★★★ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Someone you meet will challenge you or lead you in a direction that will confuse you regarding your beliefs and lifestyle. You may be attracted to someone you meet through work but, before you make a move, consider the outcome. ★★★ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don’t let your feelings lead you in the wrong direction. Avoid anyone who makes you feel inadequate. You have a lot more going for you than you realize. Believe in yourself and so will others. ★★★ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You’ll tend to overreact and overdo but, in the end, that will be what attracts someone you are interested in to your side. There are exceptions that have to be considered which may mean reconnecting with someone with whom you had a falling out. Making amends will lead to a workable agreement. ★★★★




You’re today’s West, playing for the U.S. in a Bermuda Bowl. Cover the East and South cards. Your opening bid of one diamond was required by your system; a bid of one club would have been conventional. North and East pass, but when South balances with one spade, North roars into game. You lead the king of clubs and shift to a trump. South draws trumps, as East discards two clubs, and leads a heart to the ace and another heart. East follows with the jack and ten, and you take your queen and king. East discards another club. What next?



beat the contract: the jack of diamonds.



You hold: S K Q 7 3 H A 6 5 2 D K 10 7 3 C 3. Your partner opens one spade, and the next player passes. What do you say?

Assume that South has the ace of diamonds and East the queen. South started with five spades and four hearts, and your play matters only if his distribution was 5-4-3-1, giving him a diamond loser. If West leads a low diamond, dummy can play low. East must put up the queen, and South wins and returns a diamond to the ten. But many-time world champion Bobby Wolff found the card to

ANSWER: A response of 2NT (as a conventional forcing spade raise) is possible, but most experts treat that bid as showing a balanced hand. Your best action is a “splinter” response of four clubs to show a big spade fit and a singleton club. If partner has a hand such as A J 9 6 2, K Q 4, A 4, 7 6 2, he’ll be encouraged to bid slam. South dealer E-W vulnerable

ONE STAR: It’s best to avoid conflicts; work behind the scenes or read a good book. Two stars: You can accomplish but don’t rely on others for help. Three stars: If you focus, you will reach your goals. Four stars: You can pretty much do as you please, a good time to start new projects. Five stars: Nothing can stop you now. Go for the gold.

Critics offer reviews of films showing at area theaters “It’s Kind of a Funny Story” – With only two feature films to their credit – “Half Nelson” and “Sugar” – Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck had already established themselves as an original, confident and exciting writing-directing team. Both movies stood out for the purity of their storytelling, the honesty of their characters and the complete lack of cliche even within genres that are pretty familiar. All this makes their third film such a letdown. It has some strong performances from a solid cast. Zach Galifianakis especially stands out in an uncharacteristically meaty, serious role, but there are also some tonal inconsistencies, too much narration and ill-fitting fantasy sequences. The movie finds 16-year-old Craig (Keir Gilchrist) checking himself into a Brooklyn hospital. Seems he’s been feeling suicidal and wants someone to fix this for him, but he’ll have to stay there for a minimum of five days, and can’t just zip in and out overnight. Galifianakis becomes his makeshift mentor, and Emma Roberts is appealing in a more mature role as the only other teenager there; the rest of the place is populated with the stock characters you’d find in any movie set in a mental institution. Two stars out of four. – Christy Lemire, AP Movie Critic “Life As We Know It” – Katherine Heigl has again been saddled

Is your hearing current? 211 W. Lexington Avenue, Suite 104, High Point, NC



with an unexpected baby, only this time, no one calls her parenting mate a schlub. Unlike Heigl’s “Knocked Up” co-star, Seth Rogen, Josh Duhamel is emphatically in her league. In “Life As We Know It,” they have a good and believable chemistry as opposites pushed together through fate. Heigl and Duhamel have handsome moviestar presences and keep the movie entertaining, even though its familiar story passes with nothing to distinguish itself from the many other similarly plotted films and sitcoms. They play godparents to mutual friends, who die suddenly. Guardianship to their baby girl is left to the pair, even though they hate each other. Everything from there proceeds exactly as you’d expect: some combination of antics with diapers, anxious speeches over kitchen sinks and – Spoiler Alert!!

– gradual heartwarming toward each other and their makeshift family. Two stars out of four. – Jake Coyle, AP Entertainment Writer “Nowhere Boy” – How refreshing to go back and see John Lennon the adolescent, a scruffy, lusty, angry, beguiling, confused, defiant and yearning kid. Sure, things that were little incidents at the time – Lennon’s first meetings with fellow Beatles Paul McCartney and George Harrison, or his mom showing him how to play banjo – become momentous for the audience, knowing the musical revolution this boy will help orchestrate. Yet director Sam TaylorWood does a lovely job carving out this formative slice of Lennon’s life, without mythologizing the man. At times an eerie lookalike, Aaron Johnson makes a wonderful teen John, capturing the mischievous rebel we

all know he had to be at that age and the pained youth torn between the stern aunt who raised him and the sparkling mother who inspired him. Kristin Scott Thomas as John’s Aunt Mimi and Anne-Marie Duff as his mother, Julia, are terrific. Three stars out of four. – David Germain, AP Movie Writer “Secretariat” – In a world of inspiring reallife sports stories, the tale of Secretariat is one of a kind. It’s too bad the Hollywood version about the legendary racehorse is just another one of the pack. Director Randall Wallace and his team do what the horse and its caretakers never did on the way to Triple Crown


Diane Lane in a scene from “Secretariat.” glory in 1973. They play it completely safe, offering a classy but standard Disney-fication of the tale, whose thrilling race scenes are offset by some of the blandest “you can do it if you try” dialogue you’re likely to encounter on film. Cheery performances from Diane Lane as the housewifeturned-horse-owner and John Malkovich as

Secretariat’s oddball trainer help rein in some of the movie’s sentimental excesses. Still, the movie has exhilarating moments, especially the re-creation of Secretariat’s breathless finale at the Belmont Stakes. PG for brief mild language. 116 minutes. Two and a half stars out of four. – David Germain, AP Movie Writer

Pursuant to North Carolina General Statutes Section 45-21.8, the sale of the Property may be made by whole or by tract in the discretion of the Substitute Trustee. Further, the Substitute Trustee may offer for sale any and all personal property as permitted by the Deed of Trust in accordance with North Carolina General Statutes Sections 25-9-604, 25-9-610, and 25-9-611, in whole, as individual items, or together with the Property as the Substitute Trustee determines is appropriate in the Substitute Trusteeʼs sole discretion. This notice is intended to comply with the requirements of North Carolina General Statutes Sections 25-9-607 and 25-9-613 providing for the disposition of personal property in connection with a foreclosure of real property. Grantor is entitled to and may request an accounting of the unpaid indebtedness secured by the Deed of Trust. The highest bidder at the sale may be required to make a cash deposit with the Substitute Trustee of up to five (5%) percent of the bid, or $750.00, whichever is greater, at the time the bid is accepted. Any successful bidder shall be required to tender the remaining balance of the successful bid amount in cash or certified funds at the time the Substitute Trustee tenders to such bidder, or attempts to deliver to such bidder, a deed for the Property. Should such successful bidder fail to pay the full balance of the successful bid at that time, that bidder shall remain liable on the bid as provided by North Carolina General Statutes Section 45-21.30.
