Exhibitors keep hopes realistic BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER
DON DAVIS JR. | HPE
Lauren West, director of education and development for Natuzzi, discusses trends on Saturday, the first official day of the High Point Market.
HIGH POINT – Exhibitors at the High Point Market began the trade show’s opening day with a positive, yet realistic attitude about their expectations for business this week. And it seemed that in the midst of hundreds of new furniture line introductions, manufacturers and retailers were hearing one request from consumers: value. “Our first day looks pretty consistent with the last few markets,” said Paul Tom, CEO of Hooker Furniture, a case goods manufacturer based in Virginia that exhibits in the International Home Furnishings Center. “Business has settled to a slow, steady pace, so our expectations are more measured this time. It doesn’t mean we won’t grow, but business is going to be challenging for the next few years.” Economic conditions have led companies such as Hooker Furniture and Natuzzi Italy to reshape their price points and product lines, company officials said. Hooker Furniture introduced an accent line with pieces as low as $150 – one of the lowest product price points its ever offered. Toms said the accent line is a means to give customers what they want – value – while maintaining quality.
“We aren’t where we were last year when the stock market saw six months of gains,” he said. “People were more bullish about the future then. But the good news is that (consumers) still seem to be more optimistic than they should be given the current business climate... Based on opening day and a good Pre-Market, I think we’ll have a good, steady market.” Lauren West, director of education and development for Natuzzi, said the company also designed its new lines based on consumers’ reaction to economic conditions. She said she expects value to catch the eye of buyers, which will allow the company a profitable market. “Everybody’s been feeling depressed with the economy. They’re somber,” West said. “That’s why we’ve stuck to grays, which are very calming, and other colors like blueberry and neutral linens for our products. Everyone just wants to be comfortable now.” When it comes to traffic, John Capes, store manager at Sears at Oak Hollow Mall, said his parking lot had been “jampacked” with marketgoers. A shuttle service runs from the mall to the showroom district each day of market. “Traffic has been very good,” he said. email@example.com | 888-3617

Guilford County commissioner races already are settled
Before you read...
For the first time in recent history, candidates for the Guilford County Board of Commissioners will face no opposition in this November’s elections. But incumbent Republican Sheriff BJ Barnes faces a Democratic challenger on Nov. 2, and if history repeats itself, the county could have an uphill battle in getting a sales tax referendum passed. This three part series highlights these choices voters will have to make. (Note: Guilford County Board of Education races will be featured in future editions).

GUILFORD COUNTY – The election for the Guilford County Board of Commissioners will be easy for voters this year and perhaps historic for the county. For the first time in decades, every candidate running for a board seat is running unopposed. But that does not mean there won’t be a change. One new face from High Point is guaranteed and a second is possible. The slate of unopposed candidates may be the first since the board of commissioners shifted to district elections, said Charlie Collicutt, deputy director of the Guilford County Board of Elections. “We checked the records and found that 1988 was the last time every candidate was uncontested,” Collicutt said. “When all seats were at-large, there were more candidates involved.” This year, neither of the two at-large board seats is up for election.
“I don’t recall this ever happening before,” said veteran Republican Commissioner Linda ELECTION Shaw. “I’m CHALLENGES grateful not to have any Guilford opposition.” County Shaw’s voters face unique ballot husband, Bob, served on the board in the 1960s and 1970s. “He said he could not remember this happening before in November,” Shaw said. Retiring Republican Commissioner Steve Arnold of High Point said the final ballot was unusual given “so much awareness this year about politics.” “But we have no national issues, and the U.S. Senate and Congressional races have not been noisy,” Arnold said. This year, District seats 1, 2, 3, 6 and 9 are up for election. There are 11 seats, including the two at-large. It took some special cir■■■

Brandon downplays sexual orientation as campaign topic BY PAUL B. JOHNSON ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER
HIGH POINT – Democrat Marcus Brandon said that he hasn’t highlighted his personal background as a gay man in his race for the 60th State House District because he doesn’t believe it should be relevant in his campaign. Brandon, making his first bid for public office, said that he’s comfortable with his sexual orientation but hasn’t publicized it since he began his campaign a year and a half ago. The Democrat from High Point upset veteran Rep. Earl Jones, D-Guilford, in the spring primary and faces Republican challenger Lonnie Wilson of High Point in the Nov. 2 general election. Brandon’s sexual orientation was high-
lighted last week by a gay rights organization. The Gay & Lesbian VicBrandon tory Fund mentioned Brandon’s campaign as one of its 10 races across the country to watch this fall involving gay candidates. Brandon said Friday he was surprised the gay rights group highlighted his campaign. “It’s not something that I’m hiding, no one has ever asked about it (in the campaign),” Brandon said about his sexuality. “And I think they didn’t ask about it because they didn’t think it was relevant. And I don’t think that it is.” Brandon, who has a background as a political activist, grew up in

wouldn’t have a problem working with Brown on area legislative matters if he wins the 60th State House District race. Brandon called Brown’s comments “unfortunate” but said he’s heard from legislators that Brown is a “very nice gentleman.” “I’m always willing to give anyone the benefit of the doubt, because at the end of the day, we are all working for the better good of the state of North Carolina,” Brandon said.
Guilford County. Wilson said Friday that he doesn’t plan to make a campaign issue about Brandon being gay. The public revelation about Brandon takes place against the backdrop of recent derogatory remarks about gay people made in an e-mail sent by Rep. Larry Brown, R-Forsyth. Brown, who represents parts of Davidson County, referred to gays in a e-mail to fellow Republican legislators late last month as “queers” and “fruitloops.” Brandon said he

NC police: Missing girl seen alive in September HICKORY (AP) – A missing 10year-old North Carolina girl was seen in public as recently as two weeks before she was reported missing, police said Saturday, narrowing an uncertain timeline that has hindered their investigation. Investigators said previously they couldn’t find anyone outside Zahra Clare Baker’s household who had seen her alive in more than a month. That uncertainty has made it difficult for police to narrow places to search for the girl whose bone cancer left her with hearing aids and a prosthetic leg. Zahra was reported missing Oct. 9, but investigators have said they don’t believe the story given by her father and stepmother. Police believe the girl is dead. A police news release said only that Zahra was seen in public on Sept. 25, and they declined to comment further. That day, the girl and her step-

Pat Adams said she went to police after seeing the girl’s picture on the news and recalling the visit. “They had come in and the little girl, Zahra, was standing in the aisleway at a children’s room and we have cartoons playing in
there and she was just standing there in the middle of the aisle looking into the TV room, watching the cartoon,” Adams told The Associated Press. “As I walked past her, I put my hand on her shoulder and said ‘Excuse me, sweetheart,’ and she looked up at me and smiled.” Adams said other employees were talking about the little girl’s prosthetic leg. “We were just wondering what had happened,” said Adams, whose account was first reported by WCNC-TV in Charlotte. The girl’s stepmother, 42-yearold Elisa Baker, is charged with obstruction of justice in the case. Police say she admitted writing a ransom note found in the family’s back yard the day the girl was reported missing. Zahra’s father Adam Baker said Friday that he hasn’t talked to his wife and remains unsure if she had anything to do with his daughter’s disappearance.

2 charged with being bare at cat refuge KINGSTON, Tenn. (AP) – Two former employees of a big cat refuge near Kingston say they drank beer and got naked on a front porch. But Jake Loftis and Samuel Adams say they were just listening to Bob Dylan music and not running nude through Tiger Haven,
exposing themselves to co-workers, as their arrest warrants claim. Loftis told The Knoxville News Sentinel the Sept. 16 incident was “kind of a protest” over being fired. He says it was his idea to strip. The 22-yearold Loftis and Adams, who is 26, lived on the refuge property and
worked as cat keepers. An attorney for Tiger Haven wasn’t available to comment to the newspaper, but Loftis says he and Adams were told they were being let go because there wasn’t enough work for them. Both are charged with indecent exposure and vandalism.

HIGH POINT – How much is too much when it comes to imposing regulations to keep consumers safe? It’s a tricky question that can’t be answered without input from furniture industry officials, according to experts that spoke at the High Point Market Press Breakfast on Saturday morning. Government regulations were the topic of discussion between four panelists at the breakfast, including Nancy A. Nord, a commissioner of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the government agency that protects against injuries associated with consumer products. Nord visited the market for the first time on Saturday. She said products like toys tainted with lead paint that were sourced from China have made the issue even more controversial in the last year. But sometimes imposing extreme regulations that require furniture manufacturers to use costly methods to test their products can have negative consequences, she said. “I strongly believe that the folks who make the regulations need to get out of Washington and go to where the product is being made on the factory floor,” Nord said. “We’re bureaucrats. We
won’t know what works and what doesn’t work without input from the industry.” Rob Sligh, chairman and CEO of Michiganbased Sligh Furniture Co., which exhibits at the furniture market, said similar testing requirements nearly caused financial strains on his business. He cited a California law requiring companies to prove that chemicals in a product do not cause cancer as too extreme. “If you don’t prove that the product does not cause cancer 100 percent, you have to apply a label that says, ‘This product may cause cancer,’” he said. “It’s a costly testing process. In our company, we’re applying those labels now.” “To require everything to be tested is sometimes going beyond where we need to go to impose safety,” Nord said. Nord’s visit to the market was centered around talking to manufacturers about safety regulations as well as researching “the issue of making products here in North Carolina versus imports and what the challenges of the two models are.” “I worry that the regulations we issue have a disproportionate effect on making things here,” she said.

Piedmont Triad Partnership unveils details of furnishings initiative ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT
HIGH POINT â€“ The Piedmont Triad Partnership announced a five-part initiative to enhance the global competitiveness of companies throughout the furnishings industry on Saturday at the High Point Market. The initiative, dubbed The Global Exchange for Furnishings, is designed to enable furnishings industry members in the Triad or those who are considering moving to the area to access local resources more easily, said David Powell, PTP chief executive officer. According to the Piedmont Triad Partnership, the region has a concentration of fur-
nishings resources that should be promoted, including more than 4,000 companies in the home furnishings sector, a skilled labor force, a strategic location thatâ€™s easily accessible and a friendly business environment. Powell revealed some of the details of the initiative with a panel of others involved, including City Manager Strib Boynton and High Point Market Authority President Brian Casey. The five key components are: â€˘ Regional intelligence â€“ For companies that consider moving to the area, the PTP will provide information needed such as labor availability, tax structures and construction costs.
â€˘ Site selection â€“ The PTP will help companies navigate the 12 counties it serves to find the best location for their operations. â€˘ Government liaison â€“ The PTP will serve as a liaison to top government officials on local, regional and state levels. â€˘ Database of Resources â€“ The PTP is creating a database of local resources specific to the furniture cluster. â€˘ Furnishings concierge â€“ A furnishings concierge will be offered by the PTP for additional questions or details. â€œWe want to build on the international reputation and the deep heritage of furnishings in this area,â€? Powell said.
Zookeepers to plant trees for bear habitats ASHEBORO (AP) â€“ Keepers from the North Carolina Zoo are joining two groups in planting trees to help reduce carbon dioxide in the Earthâ€™s atmosphere and to help preserve polar bear habitats around the world. The keepers began
planting the trees Saturday morning at Clay Presnell Park in Seagrove. The event is sponsored by Polar Bears International and the American Association of Zookeepers. After the tree plantings, there will be a picnic.
Students from Seagrove Elementary School have created posters to illustrate the role trees play in combating the change, and poster-contest winners will receive trees planted in their name and marked by plaques created by Seagrove potter Bonnie Burns.

campus of North Carolina State University in Raleigh. Among those scheduled to speak are Shaw University President Irma McLaurin and Jim Goodmon, the president and CEO of Capital Broadcasting Co. The Wake County school board voted last
week to ditch a student assignment plan meant to replace one based on diversity. That happened after a supporter of community-based schools voted against the 16-zone assignment plan that was to replace the diversity plan.

No other facility made bed offers to take my mom; her medical issues were complex yet Triad came through for us.â€? 2009 proved to be a difďŹ cult time for Mrs. Dorothy Hartsock, a native resident of Asheville, NC, as she suffered multiple medical problems that required hospitalization and surgery. Mrs. Hartsock came to Triad Care and Rehab under her daughterâ€™s watchful eyes in August. She was unable to attend to her daily care needs, unable to walk and deconditioned. Kivett tells us her mom had become very depressed because she thought she would never walk again, but with the help of Triadâ€™s staff she pushed forward. â€œYouâ€™ve got to want it; youâ€™ve got to do the work; itâ€™s not easy, I just realized with these guysâ€™ help, I could do itâ€?, says Mrs. Hartsock. â€œI will recommend Triad to all my friends and doctors.â€?

Iran releases American held in Tehran WASHINGTON (AP) â€“ Iran on Saturday set free an American businessman jailed in Tehran for more than two years on suspicion on ties to an allegedly violent opposition group. Reza Taghavi, 71, hadnâ€™t been charged
with a crime and denied knowingly supporting the organization, known as Tondar. â€œHe admitted to nothing and he continues to maintain his innocence,â€? his lawyer, Pierre Prosper, said by telephone.
In this photo distributed by Chinaâ€™s Xinhua news agency, rescuers are ready to go underground after an explosion at the state-run Pingyu Coal & Electric Co. Ltd mine in Yuzhou city, central Chinaâ€™s Henan province, on Saturday.
China mine blast traps 16 BEIJING (AP) â€“ China joined the world in breathless coverage of the Chilean mine rescue, but when a gas blast killed 21 Chinese miners and trapped 16 Saturday, the national TV evening news didnâ€™t say a word. Rescuers said they were fighting tons of coal dust to reach the miners, who have been located but whose conditions were unknown.
The rescuers also faced dangerous gas levels and the risk of falling rocks as they worked their way into the mine pit. The early-morning explosion in central China happened as the world still was celebrating Chileâ€™s successful rescue of 33 miners trapped more than two months. Chinese media had
detailed coverage as the men emerged to cheers. Some in China asked whether their own officials would make as much of an effort in a similar disaster, and be just as open about the progress of rescue efforts. The test came quickly for China, whose mining industry is the most dangerous in the world.
Palestinians weighing alternatives to peace talks RAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) â€“ The Palestinians will study alternatives to peace talks with Israel in the coming days, a top PLO official said Saturday, after Israel gave the green light to build 238 new houses for Jews on war-won land Palestinians seek for their state. However, itâ€™s unlikely the Palestinians will take any dramatic steps before Nov. 2 midterm elections in the U.S., since Arab
leaders have already promised the Obama administration more time, until a few days after the vote, to try to relaunch negotiations. Saturdayâ€™s statements seemed intended mainly as a new warning that Washingtonâ€™s peace efforts are in trouble. The talks, launched by the U.S. in early September, quickly broke down over Israelâ€™s refusal to extend a limited curb on construction in
West Bank settlements, deemed illegal by the international community. The Palestinians want to establish their state in the West Bank, Gaza and east Jerusalem â€“ territories Israel captured in the 1967 Mideast War â€“ and say there is no point negotiating as long as expanding settlements gobble up more of that land. Nearly half a million Israelis live in the West Bank and east Jerusalem.
Hand amputation ordered of confessed thief by Iran TEHRAN, Iran (AP) â€“ An Iranian judge has ordered the amputation of the hand of a man who confessed to robbing a candy shop, local media reported Saturday. Iranâ€™s semiofficial Fars
The 21-year-old man was also sentenced to a year in jail and ordered to return the stolen items. news agency said the chief judge of a Tehran court also sentenced the 21-year-old man, who was not identified, to a year in jail and ordered him to return the stolen items.
The ruling comes days after Iranian authorities amputated the hand of another man convicted of theft in the northeastern city of Mashhad. While Iranâ€™s hardline judiciary follows a strict interpretation of Islamic law, enforcement of punishments such as amputation are rare. Iranian authorities occasionally issue harsh rulings in an effort to stem the spread of corruption and disorder. Critics, however, say amputations, public executions or floggings hurt Iranâ€™s international image and reflect badly on Islam. Tehran has recently provoked an international outcry with the case of an Iranian woman who is sentenced to death by stoning for adultery.

North Korea threatens big increase in weapons SEOUL, South Korea (AP) â€“ North Korean media on Saturday threatened a â€œ1,000-foldâ€? military buildup as the United States ruled out lifting sanctions to try to coax the North into resuming talks aimed at its nuclear weapons programs. Last year, North Korea quit the nuclear disarmament talks and later tested an atomic device that drew tightened U.N. sanctions. But North Korea said Saturday it is willing to rejoin the negotiations and remains committed to implementing a September 2005 accord on abandoning its nuclear program in exchange for aid and security.

He said searchers still held hopes they could rescue the two missing miners, Pedro Mendoza and Angel Vera. “We hope to find the two other miners alive because they were in a spot that probably was not affected” by the cavein, Espinosa said.

Obama steps into race to aid ally BOSTON (AP) â€“ President Barack Obama stepped into the Massachusetts gubernatorial race Saturday to rally for friend and political ally Deval Patrick, who is struggling to overcome the antiincumbent mood that has swept across the country during this election season. Speaking before a crowd of several thousand at a rally at Bostonâ€™s Hynes Convention Center, Obama said Patrickâ€™s opponent, Charles Baker, is banking on the same strategy as national Re-
publicans. â€œThey figured they could ride peopleâ€™s anger and frustration all the way to the ballot box,â€? said Obama. Obama sought to frame the election as Patrick a choice between his policies, which he says are moving the country forward, and those of the GOP, who he says want to return to the policies of the past.

GOP awaits huge wins WASHINGTON (AP) â€“ Two weeks before Election Day, Democrats fear their grip on the House may be gone, and Republicans are poised to celebrate big gains in the Senate and governorsâ€™ mansions as well. Analysts in both parties say all major indicators tilt toward the Republicans. President Barack Obamaâ€™s policies are widely unpopular. Congress, run by the Democrats, rates even lower. Fear and anger over unemployment and deep deficits are energizing conservative voters; liberals are demoralized. Private groups are pouring huge sums

Obama: End tax breaks to stop overseas hiring
No disruptions from taxi fire near airport TRENTON, N.J. – Authorities say a taxi that caught fire near a Newark Liberty Airport terminal outside New York City caused no major problems or disruptions. The taxi began burning in the area of Terminal A around 1 p.m. Saturday, shortly after a major security training exercise at the New Jersey airport had concluded. A person with knowledge of the incident says that the fire was not connected to the training event.
NM man cleaning gun shoots mom, son CHAPARRAL, N.M. – Investigators in New Mexico say a Chaparral man who was cleaning his handgun Saturday morning accidentally shot his 4-year-old son and the bullet passed through the boy and hit the man’s mother. Dona Ana Sheriff’s Department investigator Bo Nevarez says both are in critical condition but their wounds aren’t believed to be life-threatening. He says the bullet struck the boy in his stomach and continued through to the grandmother and hit her in the abdomen.

WASHINGTON (AP) – End tax breaks that reward some U.S. companies with overseas subsidiaries and encourage those businesses to create jobs in other countries, President Barack Obama is telling Congress. Yet it’s an idea that has raised concerns even among some lawmakers in the president’s own party. At issue is a bill, now stalled in the Senate, that would do away with some tax credits and deferrals for U.S. companies for operations abroad. “There is no reason why
our tax code should actively reward them for creating jobs overseas,” Obama said in his weekly radio and Internet address Saturday. “Instead, we should be using our tax dollars to reward companies that create jobs and businesses within our borders.” Though Obama singled out Republican opposition, the bill also failed to get support from some Democrats, including the chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont. He has expressed concern the change would put the U.S. at a competitive disadvantage.
Feds oppose Proposition 19 SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – The U.S. government will “vigorously enforce” federal laws against marijuana even if voters next month make California the first state to legalize pot, Attorney General Eric Holder says. Holder’s warning, contained in a letter to ex-federal drug enforcement chiefs, was his most direct statement yet against Proposition 19, and it sets up another showdown with California over marijuana if the measure passes. With Prop 19 leading in the polls, the letter also raised questions about the extent to which federal drug agents
would go into communities across the state to catch small-time users and dealers, or whether they even had the resources to do it. If the ballot measure passes, the state would regulate recreational pot use. Adults could possess up to one ounce of the drug and grow small gardens on private property. Local governments would decide whether to allow and tax sales of the drug. But Holder stressed that the Justice Department remains committed to enforcing the Controlled Substances Act in all states.

The resumption of military contacts after an eight-month freeze adds to what appears to be a warming of delicate U.S.-China relations. They came just days after China invited Defense Secretary Robert Gates to visit Beijing.

Police spokesman Bruce Borihanh says the man passed through the gates of the complex on a bike at about noon Tuesday, began banging on her door and refused to leave when security guards asked him. He was arrested on suspicion of assault on the guard and was being booked at the LAPD’s Van Nuys station. His name and age have not been released. It’s not clear whether Hilton was home. This was the second incident in recent months involving an intruder targeting Hilton. Nathan Lee Parada pleaded not guilty to felony attempted residential burglary after he allegedly showed up outside the socialite’s home wielding two knives in August.

TRINITY – Curtis Connor couldn’t have been more pleased with the fourth annual Feel the Thunder and Taste the Heat event at Braxton Craven Middle School on Saturday. Connor estimated between 2,500 to 3,000 people visited the event that consisted of a motorcycle ride, car show and a chili cook-off. The event was hosted
and organized by the Friends of Trinity. “We haven’t got a total figure,” said Connor, Friends of Trinity president. “Just looking at the figures, the car registration and the sales of all the stuff we’ve sold, we’ve almost doubled the amount we had last year.” The day started out with a motorcycle run departing the school on a ride to benefit the construction of a veterans’ memorial at the Trinity Museum on N.C. 62. The Trinity Historic Preservation Society has plans to build the veterans’ memorial. Joe Moore of Thomasville placed his fully restored 1970 Chevrolet truck in the car show.

Trinity to decide on trash contract Tuesday
CHECK IT OUT!
BY DARRICK IGNASIAK ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER
TRINITY – Members of the Trinity City Council on Tuesday night will consider awarding a five-year contract to a trash hauler that wants to provide mandatory trash and recycling service citywide beginning in January. City officials had previously discussed providing the service by contracting with a corporation formed by three of the city haulers – Roadside Trash, Smith Disposal and Handy’s Garbage Service. The new corporation will not be formed because the owners of Roadside Trash and Smith Disposal decided not to join in the effort, said City Manager Ann Bailie. Bailie said she could not comment on why the haulers decided not to form the corporation. Phillip Smith, owner of Roadside Trash, also would not comment on the decision not to form the corporation. He said Smith Disposal is owned by his brother, who could not be reached for comment this week. Farrell Handy, owner of Handy’s Garbage Service, said his company will provide the service if the City Council approves the contract Tuesday. Handy said his company has been picking up trash in Trinity since 1970. “Nothing is ever sure until you sign on that dotted line,” Handy

That’s pretty much in the works. I just think it’s a good opportunity. I hope it works out good for Trinity and myself.” According to Bailie, the city will not be responsible for displacement fees for Smith Disposal and Roadside Trash, as Handy’s Garbage Service is working out an agreement with the two haulers so Trinity will not have that obligation. The fee for the service is proposed to be $15, which includes weekly trash pickup and bi-weekly recyclable pickup. The city is seeking grant funding from the N.C.

carts. If the city does not get the grant, the City Council may use funds from the general fund to purchase the carts. City officials have said they are considering the service because City Hall currently gets numerous calls a week from residents who don’t have a place to recycle since the N.C. General Assembly changed laws on recycling. The service will be mandatory except in certain situations that require trucks to drive on private roads. “I think there’s a lot of people who don’t want it, but in this day and age, it’s coming because you are going to have to do recycling and that’s a big part of it,” Handy said. firstname.lastname@example.org | 888-3657

New span replaces old bridge to beach SUNSET BEACH (AP) – The cracks and saws of construction overhead are a constant reminder to Alan Theimer that his days working on the old pontoon swing bridge in Sunset Bridge are numbered. With construction nearing its end, Sunset Beach is poised to open a $31 million high-rise bridge to replace the old pontoon one. It will be the town’s first fixed two-lane bridge in its 50-year history. Originally scheduled to open in late October, the date has been pushed back to early November. Unlike the old bridge – a floating contraption of wood and steel that required operators like Theimer 24 hours a day to open it for boat traffic – the new one measures in at 65 feet at its highest point, allowing boats to pass safely underneath, according to N.C. Department of Transportation figures. Later this year, the old bridge will be dismantled, and Theimer’s employment there will end. “I love this job. I wish I had started 30 years ago,” Theimer said, sitting back in his chair inside the tender house.
Merger of organizations on city council agenda BY PAT KIMBROUGH ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER
HIGH POINT – The City Council will consider endorsing a proposed merger aimed at enhancing the region’s profile. A proposed resolution in support of consolidating the Piedmont Triad Council of Governments and the Northwest Piedmont Council of Governments is on Monday’s meeting agenda. City leaders have already expressed support for the merger, which needs the approval of local governments in a 12-county area, as well as both organizations’ governing bodies, to take effect. The state would have to give final approval, and the new COG could be approved early next year. Proponents say the new organization will be better able to speak with
one voice in seeking out grants and other types of federal funding. Also Monday, the council is scheduled to hear about several aspects of the city’s lead paint remediation efforts. The city has used a 2008 grant to remove lead-based paint from 129 dwelling units so far. A second grant application, for $3.1 million, has been submitted to the U. S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development so the Community Development & Housing department can continue its lead hazard control efforts in homes built before 1978, when leadbased paint was banned. During the meeting, the council and the public will get their first look at a portable lead poisoning prevention storyboard. Two storyboards were purchased with funds from the
city’s grant in efforts to teach children and their parents how to avoid lead poisoning. One will be displayed at different community facilities. The other will be on permanent display at Millis Health Education Center beginning Oct. 25. The storyboards are part of the work of Lead Safe High Point, a partnership among the city, Guilford County Health Department and United Way of Greater High Point. Lead Safe High Point, which aims to educate residents about the dangers of lead poisoning, has produced fliers, bookmarks, and posters in English, Spanish, Vietnamese and Burmese that provide information about free lead testing offered for children by the Health Department. email@example.com | 888-3531
‘Leave it to Beaver’ mom dies at 94 LOS ANGELES (AP) – Barbara Billingsley, who gained supermom status for her gentle portrayal of June Cleaver, the warm, supportive mother of a pair of precocious boys in “Leave it to Beaver,” died Saturday. She was 94. Billingsley, who had suffered from a rheumatoid disease, died at her home in Santa MonBillingsley ica, said family spokeswoman Judy Twersky. When the show debuted in 1957, Jerry Mathers, who played Beaver, was 9, and Tony Dow, who portrayed Wally, was 12. Billingsley’s character, the perfect stay-at-home 1950s mom, was always there to gently but firmly nurture both through the ups and downs of childhood. Beaver, meanwhile, was a typical American boy whose adventures landed him in one comical crisis after another. Billingsley’s own two sons said she was pretty much the image of June Cleaver in real life, although the actress disagreed. “She was every bit as

She did acknowledge that she may have become more like June as the series progressed. “I think what happens is that the writers
start writing about you as well as the character they created,” she once said. “So you become sort of all mixed up, I think.” A wholesome beauty with a lithe figure, Billingsley began acting in her elementary school’s plays and soon discovered she wanted to do nothing else.

Group forms to create Virginia naval museum
FILE | AP
This photo dated between 1860 and 1865 and provided by the Library of Congress shows Rear Adm. John A. Dahlgren standing next to a Dahlgren gun on the deck of the USS Pawnee in Charleston, S.C.
FREDERICKSBURG, Va. (AP) â€“ The Dahlgren Navy base is a treasure trove of military history unrivaled in its focus on ordnance â€“ all the things on Navy ships that go â€œboom.â€? To gather, protect, display and explain materials dating to World War I, a group has been formed to start a museum. â€œIt is being shaped as a brand-new pilot project for the Navy museum system,â€? says Gary Wagner, a spokesman for the Naval Support Facility Dahlgren.
The Navy museum system comprises 13 sites around the country. â€œAs a new feature, they are creating Navy Heritage Centers and using this project as a pilot for that new (model),â€? Wagner said. The museum will be run not by the Navy, but by the newly created Dahlgren Heritage Foundation. The base was established in 1918 as the Naval Proving Ground, to test guns destined for Navy warships. Over the years, the site along the
Potomac River evolved into one of the Navyâ€™s premier research and development labs. It includes a 25-mile firing range along the river. â€œInterest in establishing a museum about Dahlgren really took off following our celebration of the baseâ€™s 90th birthday in 2008,â€? Wagner said. The event brought together people in the community who had lived and worked on the base. Many of them thought a museum would be a good addition.

Dukeâ€™s medical school expands with new buildings DURHAM (AP) â€“ The Duke University School of Medicine is expanding. The Herald-Sun of Durham reported Saturday that the university plans to add an 84,000-square-foot Learning Center as part
of an $800 million expansion. The expansion will increase space for hospital beds, research and teaching by about 20 percent. Construction on the Learning Center will begin after the first of the
year and be completed in 2013. Officials say the new building will have moveable walls to reflect a change in training doctors from having a single physician manage a personâ€™s health care to a team approach.

The legacy of parents and nation
common definition of the word legacy is “something passed down from a previous generation or ancestor.” It has to do with inheritance, bequest, gift, heirloom, heritage, birthright and carryover. The person who receives the legacy must accept it as a gift. You can do nothing to buy it or deserve it. It is a gift paid for by others. Any person may waste, squander, misuse, destroy or discard what has been inherited and never use it for its intended purpose. On Wednesday evening, Sept. 29, Kitty and I enjoyed an inspirational phone conversation with our close friend, Gladys Williams, an unusual person at age 97. Her voice was strong, her words easily understood, and her mind was “as sharp as a tack.” On Friday afternoon, we talked with her grandson, Chris Williams, the son of the Rev. O. Dale Williams, and our conversation centered on his grandmother. At the Anderson University homecoming football game Oct. 2, Chris called me out of the tent where I was keeping dry and as I stepped under his big umbrella he said, “Grandma died at 1:15 this morning.” I knew I would soon travel to Decatur, Illinois, a city of 94,000 when we first met there in the late spring of 1964. Gladys and her husband, Ornan Williams, were well known residents of that beautiful city and active leaders in Peoples Church of God for many years. They had three sons, Dale, Keith and Ben. All three of these quality men have wives and children of unusual ability. Gladys was blessed with talented grandchildren and great grandchildren. One thing that always impressed me about Gladys and her husband, Ornan, both born and married on Dec. 8, just 17 days before Christmas, was their willingness to spend extra time with their own children and other young people. They were youth leaders and teachers. The large youth room at Peoples Church

She was buried beside her beloved Ornan on Friday, Oct. 8, 2010, in the Macon County Memorial Park, Harristown, Illinois. She was faithful unto death and welcomed her entrance into eternal life. Citizens of our country must use their inherited legacy to help save the nation. That is the right to vote in every election and especially on Nov. 2. My friend Gladys and her husband, Ornan, passed on a great legacy to their children. It is now up to them to hold on to it and pass on what they have received to others.

City has been successful bringing investment, jobs In my years of public service in High Point, I have never felt the need to respond to a letter from a political opponent. But Jay Wagner’s assertions cannot be the final word. Wagner, a candidate for mayor, submitted a sharply-worded letter condemning me for “demonizing” a High Point businessman and for linking him to Wagner’s campaign. I don’t think Sanders Dallas III is a demon whether he agrees with me or not, but to deny his role in Wagner’s campaign suggests the candidate has a short memory or is trying to distance himself from one of his ardent supporters. A recently broadcasted e-mail from Dallas recommends Wagner’s website and says to call if you want a yard sign. Wagner claims I have resorted to “half-truths” and distortions to boost my record. The information I have presented came from reports published by the city. No person has ever challenged that data except the Wagner campaign. I point out Wagner describes High Point as stagnant (his word) in a newspaper interview. That’s his opinion and NOT fact. His concern about lost jobs and higher unemployment ignores the national economy which has severely impacted every city in our country. Yes, commercial investment and new construction were down the past two years, but the annual 10-year average was $280+ million, a fact he refuses to acknowledge. Wagner implies that if he had been mayor the last two years he would single-hand-
edly have protected High Point from the national economy. In response to this national crisis, your city government has worked aggressively to recruit new industries and create jobs. We acknowledge there is more to do and we will. Wagner’s campaign rhetoric starts with “I and me.” My campaign is focused on “we and us.” BECKY SMOTHERS High Point The writer is mayor of High Point and is seeking re-election.

We citizens of High Point are at a crossroads. Do we want to continue in the same direction – to grow good suburbs for Greensboro and Winston-Salem based on land use planning from the 1960s and 1970s – or do we want to embrace the whole community to develop the historic center of our city like Greensboro and Winston-Salem are showing us so

We’re all in this together when market’s in session
Market, election get A us moving his is truly an exciting time in High Point ... doubly so. With the fall 2010 High Point Market kicking off on Saturday boosting high hopes for an improving home furnishings industry, city streets in the downtown furniture showroom district are alive with tens of thousands of market visitors. We welcome them and hope their stays here are good ones and their business decisions productive. Just a few blocks away from the market’s hub, there’s a different kind of excitement. Over on E. Russell Avenue, located now in a renovated former home furnishings showroom, the High Point office of the Guilford County Board of Elections has begun early voting for the Nov. 2 general election and for the High Point city election. From early reports, it sounds as though the intense campaigning that has occurred during the last few months in city, state and national races has translated into early-voting activity. According to elections office officials, 173 people voted in High Point on Thursday. As of late Friday afternoon, 157 voters had cast ballots. On the first day of early voting in 2006 (the last non-presidential election year), only 40 people voted. But keep in mind, in 2006 there was no municipal election. High Point moved elections to evennumbered years beginning in 2008. We’d guess this year’s hotly contested mayor’s race and contests for seven of the other eight seats are contributing to the early voting increase. We also hope those races will spur others to get out on Nov. 2 if they don’t want to vote early. Excitement continues to build.
City development policy
successfully the way. When city staff in High Point spends so much of its time in planning for development at – and beyond – the edges of our current city limits, and tax resources from the federal, state and local levels go into planning and development on the fringes of our city, there is little left over for the historic core. No wonder our inner city has been in steady decline. A High Point citizen doesn’t have to attend many transportation committee meetings to see where the money is going. Yet improving inner city streetscapes to make them pedestrian-friendly is the beginning of core city development. To encourage drivers to stop and park and shop (what all retail stores, restaurants and small businesses need) rather than to drive through and past and beyond is vital to City Project improvements. We need to begin with two-way traffic, on-street parking and sidewalks with extensive street landscaping. These improvements fall under the public, not the private, realm of authority. When members of the current elected administration, on the one hand, speak in favor of Main Street improvements, and then, on the other hand, travel to Raleigh to lobby against returning Main Street to city control which would facilitate improvements, these contrary behaviors forestall – not facilitate – action and positive change. And it’s time for a change. DOROTHY DARR High Point
s you read this, it is officially the second day of the fall 2010 High Point Market. As I wrote this, it was Thursday, two days before the official opening day of market, but a casual local observer or a first-time visitor to market may not have realized that. You may recall that when market officially opened on Thursdays, in reality business began on Tuesday. When the opening day was shifted to Monday, in reality business began on Saturday (and often on Friday for some). And, now that the official opening day is Saturday, the early birds start doing business in more showrooms than you may be led to believe on Thursday. Many downtown parking lots were overflowing much of the day Thursday and a good many remained crowded even at 6 p.m. And hundreds of people participated in the National Home Furnishings Industry’s Annual Hike for Hope, benefiting the City of Hope, late Thursday afternoon. Grand Marshals Shari Wagner and Paulette Rippley led the one-mile walk that started in front of Showplace. Even though the attire of a majority of the people in the heart of market indicated Thursday was more of a rush-to-get-ready-for-market, both foot and street traffic in the downtown area indicated there was considerable business being conducted that day. Best of all, the mood of those going in and out of showroom building doors and scurrying along downtown sidewalks appeared upbeat. A few examples: • One locally based furniture manufacturer happily reported that Wednesday a major retailer had visited his showroom that morning and placed orders. • Michael Kassin of Stanton Public Relations & Marketing made certain Thursday afternoon that we understood that, with “moviegoing down, the economy slumping – sales of home theater recliners (at Berkline) are up in double digits.” Berkline, one of the nation’s top three manufacturers of recliners and motion furniture, is introducing nine new theater recliners this market, a record for the company. • It appears more exhibitors have staged and planned receptions, even dinners in some cases, to lure marketgoers to their showrooms than have hosted such events during each of the last four or five markets. Product introductions definitely appear to be on the upswing this market. Perhaps, as many observers estimate, only a little more than three-fourths of the 12 million square feet of High Point Market show-
room space is occupied this time around but, as High Point Market Authority folks have told us for quite some time now, it’s not the total number of people who attend market that makes it successful, it’s the quality and variety of the product, the OPINION volume of buyers placing orders or collecting enough information Tom to place orders once they return Blount home, and the psychological lift ■■■ a busy market can provide for a battered industry, especially in hard times, that makes the difference. Granted, some of that may be predictable hyperbole, similar to athletic coaches, regardless of circumstances, always trying to convince reporters that they and their teams take every game “one at a time.” But make no mistake: The High Point Market remains the premier home furnishings showplace in the world. It appeared that market opened without feeling negative impact from woes for some of the showroom complexes on which the media reported between the April and October 2010 markets. Both the educational and social calendars for marketgoers are chock full this market as evident in Market Press, now published the Friday before market opens and the first four days of market, which is in its 30th year of publication. Those events, along with the high-profile marketwide Market Block Party on Saturday evening at the intersection of W. Commerce Avenue and S. Elm Street and the Stars Under the Stars programs beginning at 7:30 p.m. Saturday through Tuesday in the tent on the Showplace parking lot, provided plenty of entertainment, some of it at least vaguely reminiscent of the market parties of the late 1990s, and appear to be keeping the mood of market bright and hopeful. Meanwhile, residents of the greater High Point area may be wondering what your role in all of this is, especially if you are in no way connected to market or the furniture industry. It’s simple. Treat market visitors as you would guests in your home. Why should you? ... Because the better ambassador you are for High Point, the better the future of the High Point Market, and High Point and your children and grandchildren (if they reside here), can be. Believe it or not, we’re really all in this together.

COMMENTARY THE HIGH POINT ENTERPRISE SUNDAY, OCTOBER 17, 2010 www.hpe.com
Political Perdue aims to pre-empt GOP majority fires keep I getting hotter O
nce again, an isolated event out in middle America draws the nation’s attention and puts a spotlight on our real underlying problems. In a nutshell, a rural area over in Tennessee was without any organized fire department and a neighboring town offered protection to homeowners for a mere $75 per year. One particular fellow chose not to pay for the protection, and his house caught on fire. Pretty simple, eh? Well no, no, no, there smolder breath, because the fire department came out to protect the next door neighbor who, as it turns out, did pay for the protection, and watched as the deadbeat’s house burned to the ground. And that’s when things really started to heat up. This is probably going to come as a shock but, opinions about what the firemen should have done lined up along political lines. Generally, conservatives thought they behaved properly while liberal Democrats thought that the firemen should have extinguished the fire, and pointed out that the remorseful deadOPINION beat even offered to pay up, right on the Steve spot! Bryant I guess the real ■■■ question here is, “Where do you draw the line?” Indeed, in a time of trillion-dollar government bailouts, just when is enough? We now have over 42 million citizens receiving food stamps. Is that enough? Apparently not, because people who make $20,000 a year pay no taxes and only get “refund” checks of $5,200. What, no menthol? We now have an $870 billion dollar “stimulus” program. Is that enough? Apparently not, because President Obama has requested yet another $80 billion for “infrastructure.” (This is different from the original “infrastructure” stimulus request.) Recent reports show that 89,000 dead people got a $250 “stimulus” check last year. Is that enough? Apparently not, because now we find that several million dollars of overpayment was sent out by our state government for unemployment insurance payment. (No worries … no civil servant lost their job in either instance.) President Obama claims that Republicans are receiving campaign donations from foreign donors. Is that enough foreign influence? Apparently not, because he doesn’t seem to mind using foreign systems to base how our legal system should function. Apparently not, because he thinks we should tailor our foreign policy on what foreign governments prefer. Apparently not, since he prevents Arizona from stopping foreigners from making a mockery of our borders, and from protecting the jobs and benefits of our citizens. Once again this year, seniors have been told they won’t be getting a cost of living increase in their so-called Social Security checks. Are seniors who have worked their whole lives and paid their hard-earned wages into a Ponzi scheme getting enough? Apparently so, since we have funds to spend $850 million dollars on a health-care-legislation mandated study to find out if washing the penis, after sex, of a male (I assume) in Africa will prevent AIDS. And, since we have funds for the “people’s” cell phone program, and for all the other surprises we are finding, now that our Democrat Congress finally has time to read the legislation that they rammed down our throats. When the lifeboat finally reaches capacity, will it be enough to take in the “one more” passenger that sinks us all? Does your behavior matter? There’s going to be some houses burning down as we make difficult decisions. The question is, will they be from choice, or because we no longer have a choice.

t is Jan. 26, 2011, opening day for the new session of The North Carolina General Assembly. Republicans have won control of both houses for the first time since the dawn of the 20th century. Senate President Pro Tem Phil Berger has a comfortable 27-23 working margin of Republicans to Democrats that will help his party pass legislation, but House Speaker Thom Tillis faces a tougher challenge with only a 62-58 Republican plurality. The atmosphere is unusually subdued this opening day for several reasons. Republicans are awakening to the reality they may have won some battles but lost the war. They won control. Now they must govern and it is not going to be easy. North Carolina is facing crises at many turns, none more pressing than the almost $4 billion gap between current state spending and
projected revenues. Passing a budget will be a daunting task and before this session ends many Republicans will question whether MY SPIN they really won or not. As Tom 2011 begins, Campbell state govern■■■ ment continues to suffer effects from the poor economy. Federal relief funds are all but gone, state revenues are lethargic and current levels of spending are unsustainable. For more than 20 years, informed observers have known state government was due for reorganization, but so long as the economy continued with to grow, even with the periodic ups and downs, few would take on the challenge. Significant reorganization would only happen if some crisis or event
mandated change. The $4 billion budget hole presented just such a crisis for reformminded Republicans, and now they have legislative control. The GOP believes it has a mandate from voters to shrink the size and cost of government. But Bev Perdue is a student of government and remembers well when Republicans took control of the House in the mid-1990s. Their mantra then was to cut taxes. One tax it became obvious they would cut was the unemployment insurance tax rate employers paid into the state fund, but Gov. Hunt, seeing what was inevitable, beat them to the punch, proposing a cut even larger than Republicans had considered. The GOP was thwarted. Perdue employs the same tactic this year, rolling out her proposals for a major reorganization of state government before the new legislative leadership even
has the chance to release theirs. In so doing she preempts them, much as Hunt did earlier. The reforms are popular with the public and cannot be ignored. Perdue’s approval ratings immediately rise. More importantly, she demonstrates strength rather than being made to look weak when Republicans seize the initiative. With but 20 months before the gubernatorial elections of 2012, Perdue’s chances for re-election, once considered unlikely, are looking more promising, a further slap in the face to Republicans who want to control both the executive and legislative branches. But that’s a 2012 story.

A house divided Americans must seek common ground through rational debate BY JOHN CARPER
uring the spring, 1858, Abraham Lincoln used the reference that a “house divided cannot stand” to describe the circumstances within the United States surrounding the political debate on slavery. We, today, are still a house divided. The issue is no longer literally enslavement, but still revolves around the concepts of property ownership, the rights of individuals vs. the rights of the state, and relative power of the federal government vs. state government. The very concept of property rights of individuals is under constant attack in our society. Over the past decades, the federal government has weakened the very concept of individual property rights. First, government assumed the power to levy taxes on property value and estates. In 1913, a constitutional amendment was passed allowing government to assess a share of our income. Unfortunately, in passing the 16th Amendment, the people neglected to put a limitation on just how much tax the government could apply to any income. With the ability to tax, comes the ability to dispense favors and penalties. Whether it is through favorable tax provisions, loopholes as some call them, or through progressive tax rates on different classes of people, the federal government has used
taxes to redistribute property according to its will and purposes. Another way government has altered property rights is through the application of environmental laws restricting property use based on such things as protection of endangered species or wilderness preservation. In addition, we have seen an increase in government seizing property under imminent domain provisions for the purpose of increasing the
property’s taxable value. When the state makes the assertion that all people must have health insurance, they are promoting a philosophy where the state has presumptive rights to dictate personal behavior. This current health care legislation and proposed carbon containment proposals follow on similar legislative efforts involving the education of our children, the definition of some crimes as “hate” crimes while others are just
plain old crime, determining the fat content in school lunches to prevent childhood obesity or “no smoking” laws. In the area of states rights vs. federal, we have experienced a constant transfer of authority and responsibility from state to federal. Ever since the Civil War, state rights has been regarded as a relic of the past. Today, we see this power struggle reflected in Arizona insisting on its right of border protection independent of federal action. We see Virginia, and other states, suing the federal government over the constitutionality of new health care laws. As these legal actions work through the courts, we will see how the future of “States Rights vs. Federal Government” will be defined in the 21st century. Lincoln was right in his assessment that no people can long endure when they are so divided on core moral values. Today, we face similar, lifedefining questions. Whether one calls it socialism/ progressives vs. Tea Party/ conservative, Republican vs. Democrat or working class vs. the rich, our nation has become sorely divided. In order to continue as a UNITED States, instead of red/blue states, we must find common ground through rational debate and discussion of these divisive issues rather than sound-bites, name calling, and dirt-digging politics. JOHN CARPER lives in High Point.
Here’s an SOS to buyers at Market BY JAMES BRIGHAM
urniture buyers welcome back, we’re real happy you’re in town. Your presence here makes a huge economic impact for the area and boosts the town’s spirits. I hope you enjoy your stay in High Point as we all try to put our best foot forward for High Point Market visitors. Since you’re in town, I want to ask if you could help me out with an idea. If you could do one thing, I believe you can make America great, once again, if you could, would you? If you could, when you return home would you please encourage your customers,
family and friends to buy American-made furniture? I firmly believe this Great Recession is caused by the loss of furniture manufacturing to foreign countries. When you buy furniture made over there, profits might be up a bit, but this factory worker no longer has a job here. When that worker is unemployed, they can’t pay the mortgage, can’t buy a new car or send their kids to college. The banks that hold that mortgage then foreclose, causing the neighbor’s house value to fall. That cascades to commercial properties, whose tenants no longer can
afford the rent because that unemployed worker isn’t shopping anymore. That poor slob isn’t going buy a new car, so the car salesmen is out of work. Since he isn’t selling, the autoworker is out of work. When that worker has no job, you aren’t going to sell any furniture. It just gets worse from there. Like if we don’t send our kids to college, they don’t leave home. Maybe you have similar experiences back home. So maybe, just maybe, you could help this country out by spreading the word to buy American-made furniture. If you did that, then sewers, upholsters, lathe operators and finishers could get a paycheck. If you did that,
local chemical companies might just sell some varnish. If you did that, Ma and Pa convenience marts could stay open. If you did that, taxes could be collected and our state would have a fighting chance to balance the budget. If you did that, you might just sell more furniture. Now, I’m not the brightest lamp in the box here, not sure why nobody else hasn’t figured this out. It’s simple, buy American made! If you did that, you could make America great, once again, if you did that. Buy American made! JAMES BRIGHAM lives in High Point.

WILMINGTON (AP) â€“ In good economic times or bad, people with disabilities can have a hard time finding jobs, according to federal government studies. Tim Corbett doesnâ€™t have to look at U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports to know that. Itâ€™s one reason the Surf City resident started Carolina Country Store, a business that employs three people with disabilities. The store, with Wilmington locations in the Old Wilmington City Market at 119 S. Water St. and Blue Moon Gift Shops at 203 Racine Drive, sells, among other goodies, flavored pecans made by residents of the Oâ€™Berry Center, a state institution in Goldsboro that houses more than 300 people with developmental disabilities.

Footing the bill College dropouts cost taxpayers billions NEW YORK (AP) — Dropping out of college after a year can mean lost time, burdensome debt and an uncertain future for students. Now there’s an estimate of what it costs taxpayers. And it runs in the billions. States appropriated almost $6.2 billion for fouryear colleges and universities between 2003 and 2008 to help pay for the education of students who did not return for year two, a report released Monday says. In addition, the federal government spent $1.5 billion and states spent $1.4 billion on grants for stu-
dents who didn’t start their sophomore years, according to “Finishing the First Lap: The Cost of First-Year Student Attrition in America’s Four-Year Colleges and Universities.” The dollar figures, based on government data and gathered by the nonprofit American Institutes for Research, are meant to put an economic exclamation point on the argument that college completion rates need improvement. But the findings also could give ammunition to critics who say too many students are attending four-year schools – and that pushing them to finish wastes even more taxpayer money. The Obama administration, private foundations and others are driving a shift from focusing mostly on making college more accessible to getting more students
through with a diploma or certificate. Mark Schneider, a vice president at the American Institutes for Research and former commissioner of the Education Department’s National Center for Education Statistics, said the report’s goal is to spotlight the costs of losing students after year one, the most common exit door in college. “We’re all about college completion right now, and I agree 100 percent with the college completion agenda and we need a better-educated adult population and work force,” Schneider said. The report takes into account spending on average per-student state appropriations, state grants and federal grants, such as Pell grants for low-income students, then reaches its cost conclusions based on student retention rates.
The cost of educating students who drop out after one year account for between 2 to 8 percent of states’ total higher education appropriations, Schneider said. He said the report emphasizes state spending because states provide most higher education money and hold the most regulatory sway over institutions and can drive change. Ohio, for example, has moved toward using course and degree completion rates in determining how much money goes to its public colleges and universities instead of solely using enrollment figures. “We recognize an institution is not going to be perfect on graduation and completion rates,” said Eric Fingerhut, chancellor of the Ohio Board of Regents. “But at the same time, we know they can do better than they’re doing. And if you place the financial rewards
IN THE SPOTLIGHT
around completion, then you will motivate that.” The AIR report draws from Department of Education data, which Schneider concedes does not provide a full picture. The figures track whether new full-time students at 1,521 public and private colleges and universities return for year two at the same institution. It doesn’t include part-timers, transfers or students who come back later and graduate. The actual cost to taxpayers may run two to three times higher given those factors and others, including the societal cost of income lost during dropouts’ year in college, said Richard Vedder, an Ohio University economics professor. And tying state appropriations to student performance could just cause colleges to lower their standards, he said.

DIALING FOR DOLLARS
Attention to patients is dentist’s crowning achievement BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER
HIGH POINT – Before Dr. Cody Fielden wraps up a day’s work at his new practice, Fielden Family Dentistry, he picks up the phone and calls every patient he’s seen that day. The conversations are simple and brief. He’ll ask them how they’re doing after a root canal, a tooth-pulling or a crown procedure. But the time he takes to talk to them goes a long way, he said. “I get great response from patients,” he said about the evening phone calls. “I tell my dentist friends all over the country to do the same thing. It’s great for this practice.” The routine calls are something that Fielden picked up from his colleague, longtime local dentist Harry “Frosty” Culp. Fielden began working for Culp in 2006 when he moved to High Point and bought the practice from Culp last month. Culp continues to work at the practice. Simple things like spending extra time with patients are things Fielden said he learned from Culp. “Dr. Culp has a long tradition of caring for patients,” he said. “I realized that’s why he was so wildly successful. Certainly he’s a fantastic dentist, but I saw that patients responded to him differently than any other dentist I’d seen before.” For that reason, Fielden focuses on dental care with a personal touch. Sometimes the

added touch is the evening phone call. Other times, it’s investing time and money into new technology that will provide comfort for his patients. A graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, Fielden was an engineering major before he switched to dentistry. The fields appear vastly different, but there are a lot of similarities, he said. For example, both occupations use an exact science to create something useful. The office’s CEREC crown system is a prime example of that. The technology allows patients to receive a crown consultation and installation in a single visit. And the technology mimics the same systems that Fielden once used to design machines as an engineer major. “Normally, we would

bring a patient in, prepare the tooth like shaping it and cleaning it, and make a mold for the crown,” he said. “They would go home with a temporary crown, which sometimes comes off, and come back in about two weeks for the real
crown. And if that crown wasn’t made accurately, they might have to come back in another week.” But the technology, which has been around for 10 years, allows Fielden to take a 3-D image of a patient’s mouth and design the

crown on a computer screen. The entire procedure takes about 90 minutes and cuts the number of visits. “It’s neat to use the same type of programs (to design the crown) that I used when I was designing machines,” he said. The technology is expensive, and training can be time consuming. That’s probably why it hasn’t been picked up by many offices yet, Fielden said. But that’s what his office is all about – making the dreaded visit to the dentist’s office a little more comfortable. “I know what it’s like to be sitting in that chair,” he said. “You’re scared. I’ve sat in it, too. We just try to be gentle and care for our patients as much as possible.” firstname.lastname@example.org | 888-3617
NEW YORK (AP) – Microsoft Corp. knows the cell phone world is where it’s happening, and it’s determined to be a part of it. After years of declining sales of phones based on Microsoft’s Windows Mobile software, the company is starting with a fresh slate – a completely new operating system for phones. The new handsets will go up against Apple Inc.’s highly popular iPhone and the expanding number of phones running on Google Inc.’s Android operating system. The first phone with Windows Phone 7 Series will be the Samsung Focus, which hits AT&T Inc. stores Nov. 8 for $200 with a twoyear contract requirement, Microsoft said Monday. It will be closely followed by two more phones for AT&T, made by LG Electronics Inc. and HTC Corp., and one for TMobile USA, also made by HTC. In May, Microsoft launched another new phone software package, Kin, only to yank it about two months later in the face of dismal sales. Windows Phone 7 Series is a different beast, and Microsoft is putting its full weight behind it.

HIGH POINT – Becky Smothers is seeking reelection as High Point mayor. Born in Hamilton, N.C., she grew up in Wilson, where she attended public schools before graduated from the University of North Carolina-Greensboro with a bachelor’s’ degree in sociology, where she later
took graduate courses. After graduation, she moved to High Point and Smothers worked for the Guilford County Department of Social Services.

Metro Mayor Coalition, the Aerotropolis Board and the Piedmont Triad Economic Development Executive Committee and board. She and her husband, Ed, have three grown children and five grandchildren.
Q: What role can and should the city play in economic development and job creation, and where do you see incentives
fitting into that effort? A: High Point has the major role in economic development and job creation. While the city partners with the business community, economic development is a department of city government. The mayor and council are active in the process of recruitment and business expansion. Economic development is JOBS.. JOBS..JOBS. We have done well in a difficult economic time. New announcements are forthcoming. Incentives are important in some cases. If it’s a new start-up or re-location, there are significant costs. The first three to five years for a company are critical. We pride ourselves on being business friendly, making prudent incentive awards with benchmarks and maintaining the necessary environment to attract and keep business and industry. Q: Should the city view the
campaign toward regionalism as an overall benefit to High Point or something that could threaten the city by short-changing High Point?
A: High Point will not be short-changed as long as we have strong representation at the table. In terms of economic growth and investments, companies look at the region. We have added value by being close to Winston and Greensboro, larger communities, yes, but together we have the mass that puts us in a category that attracts attention. And High Point has its own international brand independent of the others. Additionally, worker availability in surrounding counties and a willingness to commute make the Triad region an attractive area to invest.

Q: What are your top priorities if elected? A: Basic goals that I will work toward include: Job creation through new business and expansion of existing business; maintaining services with declining revenues and keeping the tax burden as low as possible; with the support of the new council, convening a “Community Congress” of citizens that will represent all parts of the city with the task to develop a 10-year vision for our whole city; continue and expand efforts to ensure that our streets and neighborhoods are safe; active participation in regional and state organizations to make sure High Point is at the table and our voice is heard; making sure citizens’ investments in facilities and infrastructure are completed and well maintained; advocating for citizen-friendly government

A: The biggest attraction Davidson County Schools has is an environment that treats teachers and staff as professionals, offer support and a community that is involved, engaged and understands the importance of public education. Maintaining this environment is a must in order to help retain quality employees during these difficult economic times. Q: What are the greatest needs facing Davidson County Schools? A: The greatest needs facing Davidson County Schools are continuing to focus on student and staff safety, continue focus and improvement of our dropout rates, and continue to address the technology disparities across the system. Q: What qualifies you to serve
A: I am a lifelong Davidson County resident where my parents, I and my children were educated; my previous board experience during a time where challenges continue to be evergrowing for funding, space needs, teacher and staff recruitment, and academic achievement; as a professional with a background in finance and commercial real estate, my company builds, develops, manages and leases commercial property, which will continue be useful as the school board addresses the budget and facility needs; I have a proven record of a good working relationship with county commissioners and representatives at the state and federal levels, which will be imperative as the school board works with other elected officials in addressing the needs of students.

Don’t sacrifice the most important part of your campaign – substance. The one magic bullet in your job hunt is with you all of the time. You’re the one who writes a resume with an objective that tells people where you want to go. You’re the one who targets organizations selectively, makes social media work for you, shines during telephone interviews and conversations, and closes effectively.
STRATEGY Wherever you are in your job search, you face each new day as an opportunity to start up again. If, like Beijing’s Michael Daugherty, founder of Bespoke Row, you believe that job hunting is depressing, do one thing, such as applying for a job, at the beginning of your day. Take his advice a step further by doing two things the next day. Rebuild to full-time effort to pull you out of the recession.

Tom Gimbel (right), president and CEO of staffing firm The LaSalle Network Corp., recommends an extremely targeted job search. He’s shown here with Alan Jagnandan, manager of Major Accounts. Just don’t take on the world. Tom Gimbel, president and CEO of LaSalle Network Corp., a staffing firm headquartered in Chicago, says to “differentiate yourself by pinpointing companies and industries instead of appealing to the masses.” Gimbel also suggests identifying only five companies and meeting with current or past employees to “find out about their company’s culture, growth strategy and busi-
ness practices.” You’ll learn what you need to know so you don’t enter interviews cold while developing advocates inside the company. An excellent tip that gives you free information efficiently comes from Tina Arnoldi of Charleston, S.C., who uses Google alerts. She used “telecommute” to get her current freelance assignment. Alerts can also be extremely effective in updating you about com-
panies in your search and giving you leads.
POWER Your greatest power comes from communicating effectively over the telephone and in interviews, where you must know how to close without jolting the employer. “Phone power” is essential, according to Dianne Austin of Boston’s Easy Small Business HR. This is also true when conversations are informal.
She’s conducted hundreds of telephone screenings for managers who want to know if a person can do the job and will fit in. This means assessing technical and soft skills. “My soft-skills phone screens,” she explains, “may include looking for signs that the candidate is friendly, engaged in the conversation, uses good judgment in response to or when asking questions, and is a logical, clear thinker. Also,
a person’s mood can often times come through loud and clear over the phone.” Watch out for anxiety and frustration, which can diminish your prospects. How do you close, on the phone or face-toface? Blair Singer, CEO of SalesPartners Worldwide Inc., in Phoenix, advocates asking questions that suggest that you’re already on board, such as “When I’m faced with that situation in the days ahead, would it be okay with you if I involve you and other team members in the decision-making?” and “Who is the person to contact for my training materials?” He also recommends that, throughout the interview, you mention your excitement about the position and your feeling that you’re a good fit. Then follow with a question about how the interviewer feels about it. When you’re ready to go for the gold, try this: “How soon can I get started?” Wait for a response. It’s your show and you’re the bullet. Do what you need to. DR. MILDRED L. CULP is an award-winning journalist. Email questions or comments to email@example.com.
