HIGH POINT – Proposed boundaries that could determine the future of furniture market showrooms will go before the city’s Planning and Zoning Commission at 6 p.m. on Tuesday. The commission will consider a Market Overlay District, proposed by the city’s planning and development department, in the City Council chambers at 211 S. Hamilton St. The proposal is based on a City Project plan that recommends limiting the development of new showrooms


City leaders said the point was to allow other businesses to thrive downtown. to one area within the city, thereby allowing a more concentrated area for the High Point Market. The proposed boundary encompasses areas that include the largest concentration of existing showrooms. Those that are outside of the district will be grandfathered in, but no new showrooms could be built outside of the boundaries. Cathy Hinson, building manager for Union Square, spoke out against current proposed boundaries at a Planning and Development Committee meeting on Sept. 22 because the showroom was not included. She said excluding it from the initial boundaries of the district could devalue the showroom’s property. City leaders said the point of the Market Overlay District was to allow other businesses to thrive downtown rather than only showrooms, which drive up surrounding property values. Initial action to move forward with the plan was taken by the High Point City Council at its meeting on Sept. 21. The commission will examine the plan, and, if recommended, it will be sent back to the council for a final decision. | 888-3617

Some exhibitors are ‘feeling the hit’ BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – Buyers who came to the fall High Point Market may be looking for fewer and more specific items than past markets due to a drop in consumer spending and a lagging economy. And some exhibitors say they are feeling the hit. New orders dropped 16 percent in July compared to July 2008, according to the monthly Furniture Insights report. Those figures and a drastic retail sales dip loomed over the heads of market participants when it opened on Saturday. Jean Welch, a freelance designer from Hilton Head, S.C., said she came to the market looking for specific pieces for her clients. A market veteran, she said consum-



Many exhibitors are making a “green” statement. 1B

ers were looking for a few highquality pieces rather than a large quantity of low-end pieces for their homes. “My clients are more quality conscious these days,” said Welch, who also contributes to a retail boutique named Wynona’s in Holly Hill, S.C. “I think that’s more important now than it’s ever been.” Other buyers like Patsy Coughenour with Coughenour’s Furniture Inc. were looking for accents and accessories in case consumers were ready to start spending again. “We hope they are ready for something new,” she said. It’s still too early to tell what kind of results exhibitors will see from buyers, said Casey Fisher, owner of Haute House. “The thing I’ve noticed about buyers is that there is no consis-

tency,” said Fisher, who has a showroom at Interhall in the International Home Furnishings Center. “Sometimes they’ll arrive on weekends. Sometimes they’ll arrive on week days. But at least they are coming.” Arturo Bamondi, sales manager for Arte De Mexico, said the company was relying on previously scheduled appointments with buyers in case the market traffic was low. “It hasn’t been as busy as we expected, but we’ve had people coming through,” said Bamondi, who was operating the company’s showroom in Market Square. “We’re projecting a good market because of the appointments we’ve made.” Haute said he had noticed a lack of young companies or new designers at market, but he had seen many older companies reinvent themselves as the furniture industry continues to struggle. “Everybody just has to hang in there,” he said. | 888-3617

Mementoes from John Anderson’s service in WWII include a diary he wrote while he was a POW after being shot down over Germany, an ID card, a service medal and photos of himself in uniform after his release.

Man vividly remembers being a prisoner of war KERNERSVILLE (AP) – On Aug. 6, 1944, John Anderson was on a bombing mission near Berlin when German anti-aircraft fire hit his B-17. The plane went into a spin. For a time, the centrifugal force was so strong that Anderson couldn’t move, much less make his way toward the door in the tail to escape. He thought he was a dead man. The Winston-Salem Journal reported that instead, his fate was to become a prisoner of war. Today, Anderson is 86. Music is a passion, and before being drafted in early 1943, he completed a degree at the Conservatory of Music in Kansas City, Mo. After being discharged on Oct. 11, 1945, he received a master’s degree and embarked on a career that began as the assistant band director at the University of Georgia and closed as chairman of fine arts at Georgia’s Columbus College, now Columbus State University. Along the way, he earned a doctorate and met and married his wife, Hazel. They had six children. Their third child, Lezah Arney,

In 1944, Anderson was a 21-year- turret gunner climbing up from old Army Air Corps tech sergeant below, Anderson tripped over him and went sprawling. By the time they both got up, the plane had gone into a spin. “You couldn’t move,” Anderson said. “We decided this is it. After a while – it seemed like a lifetime – the force is gone. Relief comes.” To this day, he has no idea what stopped the spin. “The fact that we came out of the spin was sort of a miracle,” AnderJohn Anderson son said.

Suburban growth brings new people, politics to N.C. RALEIGH (AP) – When Republican state Rep. Jeff Barnhart began serving as a Cabarrus County commissioner almost 20 years ago, there were fewer people like himself, then a recent upstate New York transplant, living on the edges of Charlotte. The county’s population has soared 70 percent since then to 169,000, and don’t be surprised if you meet someone recently from Pittsburgh or Cleveland walking down the street, attending a PTA

meeting or raking leaves in a new subdivision. “There’s been a huge influx from other parts of the country,” Barnhart said. The growth in suburban counties isn’t just a key component of North Carolina’s surge in population this decade by a projected 1.5 million people. These counties will be poised to paint a wider swath upon the political landscape in the North Carolina Legislature through 2022 because they’ll probably

have more representation in Raleigh. The General Assembly will redraw the boundaries of House and Senate districts in 2011 based on census figures collected next spring. Growing counties containing urban centers like Raleigh and Charlotte stand to gain most in the once-a-decade redraw, according to a new study. But the population surge in Cabarrus and six other counties bordering them also will

amplify their concerns at the Legislative Building. Voters in GOP-leaning Cabarrus are talking about congested roads and public schools, Barnhart said. “They’re more concerned about getting I85 widened and getting the Yadkin River Bridge replaced than they are about the exact cost of it,” he said. “They’re willing to pay something versus no new taxes. But they want value.”





Town uses goats to clear meadow, save a buck ANDOVER, Mass. (AP) – A Boston suburb has some new landscapers that will work for food – a half-dozen goats clearing and maintaining an overgrown public meadow. Under a pilot program in Andover, Lucy McKain’s dairy goats will rotate their grazing

around the meadow for an all-you-can-eat buffet of grass, brush and other growth. The goats can clear as much as a half acre every three days at no cost. The fact it’s free is important to Andover officials, since money is tight and they couldn’t

afford the heavy equipment, fuel and labor needed to clean up the meadow. Plus, goat landscaping is environmentally friendly. If the program is a success, Andover officials want to make more public parkland available to other grazing animals.

West End is kind of where the line is drawn in the sand where we have to say no to some of these activities – violence and drugs and everything else.” Price and others say a successful capital campaign should help foster revitalization of the neighborhood. “I remember when I first got into real estate 30-something years ago, I used to sell a lot of houses over there at West End, because it was one place that a young couple could buy a house and their children could walk to school for 12 grades,” he said. “Back in the ’70s and ’80s, it was a great place for a young family, and it can be that again. Obviously, a big part of that would be a community center that’s a safe place where young people can come, whether it’s sports or arts or whatever, and can expand their

RALEIGH (AP) – Even as then-Gov. Mike Easley was calling the 2002 drought a major disaster, documents show the exclusive private golf club where he belonged pumped 6 million gallons of water meant for Jordan Lake to keep its greens alive. The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Sunday that documents from Chatham County, state and federal governments show the Old Chatham Golf Club was allowed to pump the water from a creek leading to Jordan Lake for two weeks beginning July 18, 2002. Some in state government questioned the use. “Is using water from Jordan Lake to water a golf course a good use of the water?” Tom Fransen, who was then the state’s river basin management chief, asked in an e-mail. “When we are looking at reducing water quality releases, it does not look good to be supplying a special request for golf course watering.” Records also show, however, that it rained in that

same period, and the lake level barely dropped. Just a year earlier, in 2001, club directors had voted to waive the governor’s monthly membership dues, saving Easley about $50,000 while he was in office. The newspaper said Easley didn’t reveal the break on financial disclosure forms. Easley did not respond to The News & Observer’s requests for an interview. The Democrat, who finished his second term in January, is the subject of state and federal criminal investigations in several areas, including: his family’s use of vehicles; free flights; a job he helped create for his wife at N.C. State University; and a discount he took on a coastal land purchase. On June 3, 2002, the golf club’s president, Stuart Frantz of Raleigh, made a written request to pump water from Northeast Creek – a request that eventually was considered by local, state and federal agencies that had different oversight roles.

JOHN HOOD: The Left believes passing a law fixes the problem. TOMORROW

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


Officials must closely inspect incentives deals Your recent editorial regarding the Dell fiasco has stirred several thoughts in my mind: Some agree with parts of your editorial and some disagree. It would, indeed, be nice if, somehow, there would be an end to incentives by everyone, though I’m not sure if I would like the Supreme Court sticking their noses into it. But, short of that, we’re just going to have to learn how to manage all this mess better. It’s not the philosophy of incentives that have caused the problems as much as it has been nuts and bolts. The incentive packages are – and should be – contracts; legally binding, supposedly enforceable contracts. Large corporations have armies of lawyers and experienced businessmen working out their side of the deal. Too often, we have, maybe, one overworked attorney, expected to be an expert on everything from sewage plants to museum operations. Right here in High Point, we came close to getting caught short on the Radisson deal in the 1980s, when the primary developer, Py-Vavra, was having financial difficulty and asked for a re-working of their agreement with the city over the financing of that project. Part of their request was for the city to agree to subordinate its lien to a new primary loan at a much lower interest rate. No problem. However, they also were asking the city to terminate the personal guarantees of its partners on our loan to them to cleanup their financial statements. Had then-Mayor Roy Culler not been the extremely sharp business man he is, we would have been duped into letting them off the hook entirely. The companies that seek incentives are not necessarily looking out for our best interest. That’s why we need to elect wellqualified public officials, not just people with good public relations skills. Thankfully, we’ve been pretty lucky in our city. MIKE QUINTO High Point

Obama has not proven to be ‘peace’ president the blessings of God when about 80 percent of our people propose to believe in God? The obsession with the “great wall” of separation (by some of the enemies of God), has robbed us of our freedom to worship our God wherever we may be – whether it be in the White House or poor house. Our Founding Fathers had in mind a government that would not only be hospitable toward Christianity, but would actively encourage and promote Christianity and a reverence for God. As the Supreme Court stated so clearly in 1892: Our laws and our institutions must necessarily be based upon the teachings of the redeemer of mankind. It is impossible that it should be otherwise. In this sense and to the extent, our civilization and our institutions are emphatically Christian. My questions is, when has this opinion been overturned? When will the public wake up and realize what is happening in our country? In the recent news – a lady was hauled into court for having a Bible – in of all places, a public school. Is there any wonder that we haven’t been able to win any wars lately? May God continue to turn us back to Him, through Jesus Christ our Lord! JAMES KESTLER High Point

munity, regardless of age, gender, economic status, race, religion or educational background. While men are not immune to this issue, statistics show that 23.6 percent of women report at least one lifetime episode of intimate-partner violence. That’s a sister, a mother or a daughter you may know who is a victim or who has been affected by domestic violence. Although we can’t stop domestic violence overnight, we can work to shift the statistics in a positive direction. Major social change starts small. It’s as simple as an individual deciding to take action because good deeds are contagious. All it takes is one! One person to donate his or her old wireless phone to HopeLine®, Verizon Wireless’ phone recycling and reuse program. The no-longer used phone – quite possibly stored and forgotten – not only represents an opportunity to help give a victim a connection to support or emergency services but also a link to friends, family and potential employers. Donating phones is simple. HopeLine collects old wireless phones, batteries and accessories from any wireless service provider at Verizon Wireless Communications Stores nationwide or by mail using the postage-paid label available at Phones given to HopeLine that can be refurbished are sold for reHopeLine offers help for use, and those without value are victims of domestic violence disposed of in an environmentally sound way.

He has (supposedly) gotten rid of torture, pulled some troops from Iraq, and he is supposed to close the prison at Guantanamo Bay someday. But, he is trying to give the Pakistani government over a billion dollars in military aid, and he may send tens of thousands of new soldiers to Afghanistan. He doesn’t want Israel to be charged with war crimes, and he may bomb Iran even though that country hasn’t attacked us. He wouldn’t meet with the Dalai Lama because he doesn’t want to offend authoritarian China. When he leaves office, the permanent members of the United Nations and several other countries will still have nuclear weapons. I think he received this prize just because he isn’t George W. Bush.

What must the United States do to curtail Iran’s suspected development of nuclear weapons? Email comments (30 words or less) to (no name, address required). • Plan a secret bombing on Iran by dropping Obama, Hillary, Reid and Pelosi on them. That will take care of them as they are sure destroying us over here. • We will negotiate with Iran until another Pearl Harbor happens unless Israel responds and does what it has to do. Now, they are alone again.

It’s the Gospels according to Cheney apostles S o we may soon have ourselves a conservative Bible. Besides Fox News, I mean. This new Bible is from Conservapedia, a Web site that bills itself as a conservative alternative to the perceived liberal bias of Wikipedia, the user-edited online reference. You may judge Conservapedia’s own bias by reading its definition of liberal: “someone who rejects logical and biblical standards, often for self-centered reasons. There are no coherent liberal standards; often a liberal is merely someone who craves attention, and who uses many words to say nothing.” For the record, Wikipedia defines conservative as a word referring “to various political and social philosophies that support tradition and the status quo, or that call for a return to the values and society of an earlier age. ...” Now, having protected unwary Americans from – ahem – Wikipedia’s bias, Conservapedia founder Andrew Schlafly (son of Phyllis) tackles perceived bias in the Good Book. He proposes to correct the Bible by creating a new translation based upon 10 principles,

including: concision (as opposed to “liberal wordiness”); an emphasis on “free market parables” and the exclusion of “liberal passages” he says OPINION were inserted into the original text. Leonard One such would Pitts be the well-known ■■■ story of the adulterous woman brought before Christ by a crowd eager to see her punished; Jesus says the one without sin should cast the first stone. As biblical scholar Bart Ehrman demonstrates in his book “Misquoting Jesus,” that passage and others were indeed inserted into the Gospels – by copyists whose transcriptions were once the primary means by which Bibles and other books were disseminated. We’re talking about the era before the printing press, i.e., pre-15th century, so apparently, “liberals” have been at this a long time. Of course, conservatives are not the first folks to recast the Bible in their own image. Oxford University Press was justly ridi-

culed in 1995 for a PC Bible whose touchy-feely innovations included gender-neutral language so as not to offend women and a ban on phrases like “the right hand of God” in deference to southpaws. But if Oxford’s excesses resulted from a misguided attempt at inclusiveness, the forces guiding Schlafly are less benign. He is part of an ongoing crusade to delegitimize any institution, any information source, any inconvenient “fact” that contradicts conservative beliefs. Rather than trust those beliefs to stand or fall in the free market of ideas, some conservatives now apply a kind of intellectual protectionism. So now you have your conservative newspaper, your conservative radio station, your conservative university, your conservative “facts,” and, apparently, your conservative God, and you may build yourself a conservative life in a conservative bubble where you need never contend with ideas that challenge, contradict – or “refine” – your own. But here’s the thing: When no authority can be regarded as unimpeachable by both right and left, when no fact can be uni-


versally accepted as such, when anything you prefer not to believe is automatically dismissed as a product of “bias,” you impoverish intellect and render informed debate impossible. You may think Dwyane Wade is the best there is and I may prefer Kobe Bryant, but if we can’t agree they both play a game called basketball, if you say it’s basketball but my conservative dictionary tells me it’s actually checkers, then we can’t even have the debate; our assumptions are too fundamentally incompatible. We live in different realities. As in the recent spectacle of Americans shouting past each other like Martians and Venusians arguing in Farsi. Conservapedia’s effort to remake Jesus of Nazareth in the image of Dick Cheney suggests a future filled with more of the same. A conservative Bible? Lord, have mercy.

Blast kills 5 near Baghdad cafe, police say



Afghan foes: Karzai delaying election probe KABUL â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Afghanistanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s political opposition accused President Hamid Karzai on Sunday of delaying release of a U.N.-backed investigation into fraud in the August presidential balloting and pressuring election officials to declare him the winner. International demands mounted for Karzai to agree to a runoff if the fraud probe shows that he failed to win a majority of votes on Aug. 20

BAGHDAD (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A bomb attached to a motorcycle exploded on Sunday near a popular cafe in a largely Sunni district of Baghdad killing five people, Iraqi police said. The blast in Baghdadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Azamiyah district also injured 16 civilians, an officer at the al-Risafa police station said. Officials at two hospitals that received the wounded said most of the injured were young men. The policeman and hospital officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the media.

7 killed, 20 injured in Puerto Rico bar SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Gunmen opened fire into a bar in northern Puerto Rico and killed at least seven people, injuring 20 others, police said Sunday. A prosecutor said a battle over drug traffic might have prompted the attack. A 9-year-old girl and a pregnant woman who lost her eight-month-old fetus after being shot were among those seriously wounded, said police Col. Jose Morales.

Taliban vow to defeat Pakistan offensive DERA ISMAIL KHAN, Pakistan â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Pakistani troops and the Taliban fought fierce battles Sunday in a militant sanctuary near the Afghan border, with both sides claiming early victories in an army campaign that could shape the future of the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s battle against extremism. A Taliban spokesman vowed the Islamist militants would fight to â&#x20AC;&#x153;our last drop of bloodâ&#x20AC;? to defend their stronghold of South Waziristan.


A group of injured U.S. Army troops who served in Iraq are seen during the gathering with their buddies at al-Faw Palace, headquarters for the U.S. military command at Camp Victory on the outskirts of Baghdad, Iraq. The group returned to Iraq this week as part of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Operation Proper Exit,â&#x20AC;? a program sponsored by the nonprofit Troops First Foundation and the USO.

Iran bombing kills 5 Revolutionary Guard leaders TEHRAN, Iran (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A suicide bomber killed five senior commanders of the powerful Revolutionary Guard and at least 37 others Sunday near the Pakistani border in the heartland of a potentially escalating Sunni insurgency. The attack â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which also left dozens wounded

â&#x20AC;&#x201C; was the most high-profile strike against security forces in an outlaw region of armed tribal groups, drug smugglers and Sunni rebels known as Jundallah, or Soldiers of God. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad promised sharp retaliation. But a sweeping offensive by authorities is unlikely.

Gates seeking allies’ help on war



3rd person dies in sweat lodge case FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. – The family of a Minnesota woman who died more than a week after being overcome in an Arizona sweat lodge ceremony said Sunday that she prided herself on leading a healthy and active life. Liz Neuman, 49, of Prior Lake suffered multiple organ damage and was in a coma before she died Saturday at a Flagstaff hospital. She was among dozens crowded into the sweat lodge on Oct. 8.

UConn football team grieves loss of player STORRS, Conn. – UConn coach Randy Edsall says his team is heartbroken, devastated and upset over the death of Jasper Howard. Howard, 20, was stabbed to death outside a university sponsored dance early Sunday. Edsall, who had to identify Howard’s body, says the cornerback was going to be a father. Team captain and punter Desi Cullen says his teammates will make sure the child will have over 100 uncles.

Rahm Emanuel says Fox News is not news WASHINGTON – White House advisers pledged on Sunday to book administration officials on Fox News despite claims by the president’s inner circle the cable network is a GOP mouthpiece whose programming “is geared toward making money.” On Sunday, Rahm Emanuel, President Barack Obama’s chief of staff, said, “It is not a news organization so much as it has a perspective.” ENTERPRISE NEWS SERVICE REPORTS

White House casts doubt on Afghan reliability WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama will not commit more U.S. troops to Afghanistan until he is convinced that the central government can be a credible and effective U.S. partner, a senior White House aide said Sunday. But it was unclear whether

Obama intends to accept the recommendation by the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, Gen. Stanley McChrystal, for thousands more American troops and other resources in the 8-year-struggle to stabilize Afghanistan. The central question before

Obama, chief of staff Rahm Emanuel said, is “not how much troops you have, but whether in fact there’s an Afghan partner.” The issue of developing an effective Afghan central government has dogged the U.S. mission virtually from the war’s start.

WASHINGTON (AP) – The Pentagon’s chief is undertaking the tricky task of trying to persuade allies to remain committed to the war in Afghanistan even as the Obama administration debates whether to send more troops to fight. Defense Secretary Robert Gates is undecided – at least publicly – on whether to order more forces to fight the Taliban in Afghanistan, as his top commander there has requested, or to focus more narrowly on al-Qaida terrorists believed to be hiding in Pakistan. Gates departed Sunday on a weeklong mission to Japan, Korea and Slovakia – in part to ask NATO partners and Asian allies for continued contributions to the war.

Adviser: Obama awaiting finished health care bill WASHINGTON (AP) – The White House will not commit to health care legislation that would cap insurance premiums or tax benefits, taking a wait-and-see approach as congressional negotiators seek a deal, advisers said Sunday. President Barack Obama will not demand that a final bill include a government-run plan as a way of driving down costs through competition, though that’s his preference, they said. “There will be compromise. There will be legislation, and it will achieve our goals: helping people who have insurance get more se-

curity, more accountability for the insurance industry, helping people who don’t have insurance get insurance they can afford, and lowering the overall cost of the system,” aide David Axelrod said. Asked on ABC’s “This Week” if Obama would sign a bill that ended the antitrust exemption for the insurance industry and allow caps on premiums, Axelrod said, “We’ll see what Congress does.” A 1945 law lets states regulate insurers without federal interference.

THOMASVILLE – More than $100,000 could be appropriated tonight by the Thomasville City Council to pay costs related to the recent sewer spill of 15.93 million gallons. According to City Manager Kelly Craver, the City Council will consider appropriating $17,500 for legal services, $89,000 for maintenance and construction engineering and $35,000 for waste treatment fines and penalties. The appropriations to-

taling $141,500 are part of a list of actions the city of Thomasville recently announced to reduce the risk of future spills. “We are in the midst of a very thorough and careful investigation,” Craver said. “We’ve hired the appropriate experts to help us determine and evaluate the facts, so we will know what happened. Then we can go forward from here.” According to the plan, the city plans to hire Pease and Associates Consulting Engineers to analyze the city’s sewer collection sys-

tem and prioritize the immediate, short-term and long-term rehabilitation needs. The city also has hired Brown and Caldwell, an environmental consulting firm, to review city records and other data to investigate the causes, duration, and size of the spill and any environmental impact, including any impact to High Rock Lake and its tributaries. The city has hired the law firm of Brooks Pierce to conduct an investigation of the handling of the spill. The untreated wastewater spill, which began July

13 and ended Aug. 4, spillled into North Hamby Creek in the Yadkin/Pee Dee River Basin, which flows into High Rock Lake. City officials have said the spill happened as a result of a collapsed manhole, possibly during or after a rainstorm on July 13. Yadkin Riverkeeper Dean Naujoks initiated a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency criminal investigation after he received a tip from a Thomasville Wastewater Treatment Plant employee who claimed plant officials intentionally underreported the spill totals to the media. According to Craver, the

EPA made Thomasville employees recalculate an amount of 385,000 gallons of raw sewage that was initially reported by the city Aug. 4 to the Division of Water Quality. Dean Lambeth, the city’s maintenance and construction superintendent, resigned Sept. 21. Craver said Lambeth had reasonable enough knowledge to investigate the spill after receiving two phone calls about a potential spill on July 31. Lambeth waited until Aug. 3 to investigate the spill, according to the city manager. | 888-3657

College offers training for nonprofits



Mohamed Ahmedna, professor of food science at North Carolina A&T State University, was named director of the Center of Excellence for Post-Harvest Technologies at the North Carolina Research Campus in Kannapolis. The center is administered by the School of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences at A&T. Its focus is on inventing processes to improve food safety and nutrition and developing new products from fruits and vegetables, especially those grown in North Carolina.


HIGH POINT – High Point University, which has one of the oldest degree programs in nonprofit organization management, will start a six-month training academy in January for local professionals. Hosted and facilitated by the university and the Guilford Nonprofit Consortium, the Nonprofit Management Institute is an educational and training program designed to focus on useful specific topics. The university has Palmer offered nonprofit courses since 1965 for an undergraduate major and minor in Nonprofit Leadership and Management. Since 2001, HPU has offered a graduate program in Walker Nonprofit Management. Ninety-two students have received a master’s degree. The graduate program is one of only two master’s programs in the Southeast. The other is offered at the UniverCugliari sity of Georgia. Only 17 such programs exist in the United States. HPU leaders used grants totaling more than $1 million to create the Center for NonProfit Leadership which later developed the graduate program. “There is a strong need for nonprofit staff to develop the skills, knowledge and expertise that are critical to their success in nonprofit management and leadership,” said David Walker, associate professor and director of the master’s program. “The program is designed to help managers and aspiring managers to become effective in their field and to successfully address challenges and issues that are salient to their organizations.” With the rapid growth in the number of nonprofit organizations and the retirement loss of experienced professional leaders, nonprofit management is wide open for career opportunities, said Christine Cugliari, assistant professor of human relations, sociology and nonprofit studies. “HPU graduates from the master’s program will be especially well suited to step into these management and leadership positions,” she said.|888-3626

Companies make ‘green’ statements BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – Vibrant colors are splashed all over showrooms at the fall High Point Market, but participants will hear a lot of talk about green this season. The green movement, that is. From turning everyday waste into a furniture master piece to eliminating the use of harmful chemicals and dyes, some exhibitors are taking the environmentally safe approach in their new products. David Bryan, owner of Meridian Timberworks, found an ecofriendly idea for his company on the side of the road. Bryan was driving down King Street in Boone, where his company is based, when he saw a large, 300-year-old tree being cut down due to a road The workers told Bryan that the tree, which was still healthy, would be made into firewood. “I was appalled at that,” he said. “It’s just so much history.” Because he knew there was a better purpose for the tree, he had it moved to his company’s site so he could create something meaningful from its remains. He acquired 22 slabs from the tree and turned them into long, natural kitchen tables. “We’ve done slab furniture in the past, so I knew the possibilities,” said Bryan, who is displaying the slabs in Hamilton Properties. “Hopefully, the right buyer




David Bryan, owner of Meridian Timberworks Inc., stands next to two tables created from slabs of a 300-year-old tree. will find this table and keep it in their family for years to come.” A new line of environmentally friendly fabrics was released by Duralee this month through a partnership with designer Clodagh. With a background in environmental architecture, Clodagh designed the fabrics to be at least 51 percent natural, according to Robin Gordon, director or marketing and advertising for the company. “Clodagh isn’t saying everything has to be 100 percent green; she’s saying every bit helps,” Gordon said. The fabrics include recycled poly, bamboo, hemp and other natural fibers. According to the company, every yard of fabric that uses recycled poly is equal to removing 16 20-ounce water bottles from a landfill.


Other companies like Palecek say they’ve been designing “green” furniture for years with their natural wood products. The company is displaying new accessories and frames in their showroom in the Green Wing of the International Home Furnishings Center. “Our materials are all plantation grown,” said Sheila Daniel, the company’s marketing director. “You can’t just say you’re green. You actually have to practice it.” The company is showing several wood-carved accessories, natural wood-framed furniture and other handwoven pieces at the market. Daniel said the company emits only 17 percent of legally allowed volatile organic compounds in its California plant. | 888-3617

Police charged a Charlotte woman with DWI after a Friday night accident on Independence Boulevard that killed one man and left a 3-year-old in the hospital with lifethreatening injuries. Mary Rebecca Saunders, 33, could face more charges after police present the findings of their investigation to the district attorneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office. Officers said Saunders tried to turn onto Sharon Amity Road even though thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sign there that says no left turn or U-turn. As the car was turning, it was struck on the passenger side by a 2005 SUV.

Commissioners approve homeless center pledge BY DAVID NIVENS ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

GUILFORD COUNTY â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Commissioners got behind efforts Thursday to help the homeless in Greensboro by pledging $275,000 for a day center. The money will go toward renovating an E. Washington Street warehouse and office building for the Interactive Resource Center. The building was donated for the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s homeless. Renovations have been estimated at $500,000. Commissioner Paul Gibson, a Greensboro Democrat, proposed the pledge which the Board of Commissioners approved on a 10-0 vote. Organizers are seeking donations from the city of Greensboro and other nonprofit organizations to move the service center from Bessemer United Methodist Church. Last year, Greensboro City Council set aside $200,000 in housing funds for startup money.

The center refers homeless people to counseling and treatment centers. Center staff also provide resources and help with job searches. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This means were are committed to provide the money, but we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have it available yet,â&#x20AC;? Gibson said. Gibson has worked with the center leadership. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a worthwhile project,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This will be a platform to help these people get services.â&#x20AC;? High Point leaders, churches and agencies serving the homeless are working on a similar project. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are breaking ground for a service in this direction,â&#x20AC;? said Democratic Commissioner John Parks of High Point. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hope High Point can get this service too.â&#x20AC;?

FALL MERCHANDISE HAS ARRIVED!!! With More on the way!!!


ear Abby: When our first grandchild was born, my son, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Vic,â&#x20AC;? and his wife bought the first video camera in the family. I often asked them to bring it to family get-togethers, and to help out, I purchased dozens of long- running, high-quality tapes. We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t buy a lot of toys for the kids. We made memories instead â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a trip to the circus, renting out the roller rink for the entire family, and holding â&#x20AC;&#x153;sports championshipsâ&#x20AC;? in our yard. All of the fun was captured on tape. Our family grew, babies became teenagers, and we had a growing pile of tapes. Two years ago, my husband died unexpectedly. I felt as though my life had been torn to shreds. I was slow getting over the shock. Recently I finally felt strong enough to watch the tapes again. (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Grandpaâ&#x20AC;? was always in the middle of the action.) When I asked Vic to bring them over, his response was, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mom, we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have those videos anymore. We taped Juniorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s softball games over them.â&#x20AC;? I said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;How could you?!â&#x20AC;? He replied, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Get over it, Mom! Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all in the past.â&#x20AC;? I was so angry, I walked out. I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t called them since, and they havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t


contacted me. I am so hurt. How could anyone have so little feeling? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; ReRecorded in Miami

Dear Abby

Dear ReRecorded: â&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  Your sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s response was brutal. He owes you an apology for his rudeness and insensitivity, but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right about one thing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the tapes are gone. He was put on the defensive, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why he tried to dismiss your feelings. Obviously, he thought the family would go on forever just as it was. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think it was important to preserve the videotaped family album. Of course, by sacrificing the past for the present, he ultimately cheated his own family and any siblings of his generation who might be interested in sharing the family history. Fortunately, you have many happy memories in your heart of your happy marriage and the experience of raising your family. And no one can ever take those away from you. Dear Abby: I have been married two years to a wonderful man, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re having problems in

the bedroom. Both of us are very uncomfortable talking about our feelings, especially when it comes to sex, and I just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t explain to him what I want him to do and vice versa. I have tried many times to say things indirectly but have never been successful. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t talk to him directly because I am very embarrassed. This has started to destroy our marriage, and now we generally prefer to sleep alone so that we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to have sex. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; S.O.S. in Thousand Oaks, Calif. Dear S.O.S.: If you want to save your marriage, you will need the assistance of an â&#x20AC;&#x153;interpreterâ&#x20AC;? so you and your husband can communicate more fully. Please talk to your doctor and ask for a referral to a licensed, experienced sex therapist. (Because you find the topic of sex embarrassing to discuss, I recommend you consult a woman.) Believe me, you are not the only couple to have this problem. In fact, so many others do that sex therapy is a specialty unto itself.

es, I am going to talk about smoke detectors again because I still go in homes without detectors. About the only scenario better than having working smoke detectors is having a sprinkler system in your home along with smoke detectors. Without early detection of smoke and fire, chances of escape decrease regardless of the time spent practicing escape plans. Considering that some detectors are priced as low as FIREHOUSE $10, it just CHAT doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make sense Lee to not have Knight them in â&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  your home. Not having smoke detectors endangers you and your family. Properly installed smoke detectors are your first line of defense against fire. Smoke detectors should be installed on every level of your home, including the basement. They should be mounted outside every sleeping area. New homes are required to have a smoke detector in every sleeping area, with all detectors interconnected so they will activate when any one of the detectors alarms. Detectors should be mounted on the ceiling or high on walls because smoke rises. Detectors mounted on the ceiling should be 4 inches from the wall, and wall-mounted detectors should be mounted 4 to 12 inches from the ceiling. Never paint smoke detectors or put other decorations around them. This could keep the detector from working. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also important to maintain smoke detectors after installation. Detectors should be tested every month to assure theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in working order. Replace batteries when you reset your clocks in the spring and fall or when the alarm chirps, warning that the battery is low. Resist the temptation to take the battery out of your detector to install somewhere else. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to forget replacing batteries, and your detector is useless if it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t operate. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to remember that smoke detectors do not last forever. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recommended that smoke detectors be replaced at least every 10 years. Since the use of smoke detectors became common, fire deaths in this country have dropped in half. They are the single most important thing you can do to protect your family. Make sure you have adequate smoke detectors in your home, and make sure they work. Your life depends on it. 24/7/365: You call; we respond.



A few bucks could save your life




Prostate cancer: treat or not treat?


ear Dr. Donohue: On one hand, I have been told that many men die with prostate cancer but few die of prostate cancer. On the other, statistics are announced stating that prostate cancer is in the top five causes of death in men! Hello? My doctor has not ordered a PSA test for me in a number of years. I don’t push the issue because I don’t want to appear to be a hypochondriac, but I don’t feel sufficiently informed. I would appreciate your comments. I am 82. – F.O.


Cancers – all the varieties – are the second leading cause of death in men and women. Prostate cancer comes in second place for cancer-caused male deaths. Around 28,000 men die from it every year in the U.S. PSA, prostate specific antigen, is a blood test used for detection of prostate cancer. The problem with PSA is that it is sometimes high for reasons other than cancer, and it doesn’t indicate the cancer’s aggressiveness. Most prostate cancer isn’t lethal. Why, then, do so many men die from it? For one, many men have it. Almost all men in their 80s have patches of prostate cancer in their gland, and many men in their 70s have it. A large percentage of these men will live out their full life span without ever having a single prostate cancer symptom. If a man could be assured that his prostate cancer would not be lethal, that man most likely would choose not to treat it. Treatment can come at a price. It can lead to erectile dysfunc-















tion, urine leakage and the complications of radiation, such as damage to the rectum. HEALTH For these and other Dr. Paul reasons, Donohue the United ■■■ States Preventive Task Force – an expert panel that gives guidance on which tests to have and which illnesses to treat – recommends that men 75 years and older or men with a life expectancy of less than 10 years not be tested with PSA. The booklet on the prostate gland explains this common cancer and its treatment. Readers can order a copy by writing: Dr. Donohue – No. 1001, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 328536475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Can. with the recipient’s printed name and address. Allow four weeks for delivery. Dear Dr. Donohue: I am a 60-year-old man in good health. I work out five days a week, one hour each session, with a mix of weight training and cardio. A recent blood test showed my creatine kinase to be high. My doctor asked if I have any muscle pain. I do not. He had me stop my statin drug for two weeks and repeat the test. The results were about the same. Should I be concerned? Could it be caused by my exercise? – L.K. Creatine kinase, CK, is an enzyme found in muscle. Elevated blood

levels can indicate muscle damage. Muscle illnesses called myopathies, a sluggish thyroid gland and underactive parathyroid glands can cause a rise in CK. Large, muscular people have higher-thannormal levels. Exercise definitely can elevate the reading. Stop exercising for a week or two, and have the CK rechecked. If it doesn’t drop, then exercise is not the cause. I’m sure your doctor has considered other causes and found none. Pursuing a slightly elevated CK – and your elevation is only slight – in a person with no symptoms is usually a waste of time and money. Keeping an eye on such a person is about all that is necessary in most instances. Dear Dr. Donohue: I am 74 and had a five-way bypass with replacement of the aortic valve in 2003. Lately, after eight or nine hours of sleep, I wake feeling I haven’t had any sleep. I mentioned this to my doctors, and they just shrug their shoulders. That’s hardly an answer, is it? – W.M. Fatigue is one of the leading complaints that bring people to doctors. For someone like you, the most important organ to examine is your heart, to see if all is well there. Fatigue can be a sign of poor heart pumping. If the heart is OK, then things like the thyroid gland, anemia, hidden infections, adrenal gland malfunction and depression have to be considered. A shoulder shrug isn’t an answer. Don’t let your doctors off the hook.

Fantasy furniture


The Slime Time chest of drawers is for any kid who loves gooey gobs of ooze.

The new Nickelodeon MyRoom collection is a kid’s dream BY JIMMY TOMLIN ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER


ou don’t think little boys care about furniture? Well, what if the furniture had gross gobs of glow-inthe-dark slime oozing out of it? For a boy of, say, 10 or 11, that’s not furniture – that’s a fantasy. That’s just one of the highlights of Lea Furniture’s new Nickelodeon MyRoom youth furniture collection, making its debut at the High Point Market this week. Lea developed the new line in partnership with Nickelodeon, the popular TV network that has given the world such beloved cartoon characters as SpongeBob SquarePants, Dora the Explorer and Diego. “The folks at Nickelodeon told us they want to be every place where kids are, and that includes their bedrooms,” says Earl Wang, senior vice president of sales and merchandising for Lea Furniture. In addition to the fun bedroom pieces that feature SpongeBob and the gang, there’s also the slime line, inspired by Nickelodeon’s devotion to slime-oriented programs – such as “Slime Time Live” – in which people getting slimed gives the show its appeal. “We were able to develop a three-dimensional slime that we’ve applied to some of the furniture,” Wang explains. “The Slime Time chest of drawers, for example, has the appearance of slime oozing out of the drawer fronts. It’s a textured slime – it has a spongy, squishy feel to it – and the nice thing about the slime is that it glows in


In The Cave, a loft bed creates a room-within-a-room and even has space for a built-in media center. the dark. We also have a loft bed that has slime oozing out of the panels and out of the top bunk.” Nickelodeon MyRoom is broken down into three age groups: Nick, for ages 3-7; TweenNick, for ages 8-12; and TeenNick, for 13 and up. The Nick line incorporates the favorite characters of children in that age group, including SpongeBob, Dora and her best friend Boots, and Diego and his best friend Baby Jaguar. Interchangeable graphic panels will allow kids to change to their favorite Nickelodeon character as often as they want, according to Wang. Furthermore, when the child outgrows the characters,

the panels can be removed, creating all-white furniture that can be used in dorms, first apartments or as a guest bedroom. The panels are also reversible. “So on one side you have Dora, and then you turn it over and it’s Diego,” Wang explains, “so you can quickly convert it from a girl’s bedroom suite to a boy’s bedroom suite.” Other pieces in the Nick collection include Hide & Sleep beds, which create fun spaces for kids to play but also offer storage options; the Story Time captain bed, which includes book storage in the footboard to promote reading; and the Grow With Me desk and play table, both of which can


be adjusted as the child grows. TweenNick focuses on allowing kids to express their individuality. In addition to the Slime Time line, other pieces include the Bob Squared chest, which features five drawers cut at odd angles and glow-in-thedark sponge drawer pulls; the Bikini Bottom six-drawer chest, which is serpentine-shaped and is designed with orange coral, sea bubbles and SpongeBob silhouettes; and The Cave, a loft bed that creates a room-withina-room and features space for a built-in media center. The TeenNick collection comes in five bed combinations – the Flat, the High-Rise, the Studio Loft, the Daybed and the Suite – and is designed to be able to go with teens as they graduate and move away from home. “If they’re going to a dorm or an apartment or condo, it’s suitable for them to take with them and not be embarrassed or have the appearance of being childish,” Wang says. “The designs are contemporary, with a little more of a European sophisticated style.” Nickelodeon MyRoom will fall into the mid-price range for youth furniture, Wang says, and it’s been well-received so far. “It seems like the industry is looking for something fun,” he says. “Kids’ furniture is one of the growth areas of the industry, and it’s also one where you can really break the rules and do something a little different. Kids don’t want the same things their moms and dads have.” | 888-3579

Victory Junction welcomes the public to its Fifth Birthday Celebration on Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m. The birthday party is held in conjunction with Randleman NASCAR Days and offers guests an opportunity to see the facility and understand Victory Junction’s mission. A private camper reunion will take place earlier in the day and will give past campers and their families a time to reconnect. Victory Junction is a nonprofit camp for children with chronic medical conditions or serious illnesses. All buildings, including the kids’ favorite Jimmie Johnson Victory Lanes bowling alley to the Kurt Busch Super Dome, will be open for public viewing and provide the opportunity to see what Victory Junction campers experience. Camp staff will be on hand to answer questions and share stories. Fall festival food will be for sale all over camp, while bands, games and fun camp activities will be going on in and around Victory Circle. The Michael Waltrip Operation Marathon Sportscenter will play host to the third annual “Vic’s Garage Sale” where NASCAR memorabilia and other various items will be sold with proceeds benefitting camp. Guests will need to ride the shuttle from the Richard Petty Museum, at 142 W. Academy St. in Randleman, to Victory Junction for a donation of $5. The shuttle will run from 1 to 4 p.m.







It’s silly to make the same mistake twice when there are plenty of new mistakes you can make. But many players persist in drawing trumps when, for one reason or another, they ought to wait. In today’s deal, East won the first club with the queen and shifted to the jack of diamonds, and South won in dummy and let the ten of trumps ride. West won and led another diamond, and South won and drew trumps. He exited with a diamond, but East won and led a spade, and West’s king won the setting trick.

DIAMOND LOSER I’d bet that some people who “never make the same mistake twice” repeat it quite often. South has a possible loser in each suit but can discard his diamond loser on dummy’s queen of spades – if he sets up his discard quickly. After South wins the first diamond, he must lead the ace and a low spade. If West wins and leads another diamond, South wins and throws his last diamond on the queen of spades. He can then start the trumps safely. This week: Wait to draw trumps.

DAILY QUESTION You hold: S Q 8 4 H 10 9 3 D A K 5 C K J 7 6. You open one club, your partner responds one heart and the player at your right overcalls one spade. What do you say? ANSWER: Some players might bid 1NT. Others would make a “support double,” conventionally showing three-card heart support. The soundest action is a pass, suggesting minimum values and nothing special to say. A “free” bid of 1NT should promise 14 or 15 points as well as a trick in spades.

Carolina running back DeAngelo Williams (34) spikes the ball in the end zone after scoring the game-winning touchdown with 29 seconds to go against Tampa Bay on Sunday.

Panthers run wild TAMPA, Fla. (AP) – With the game on the line, Carolina’s Jake Delhomme found a way to make up for costly mistakes the Panthers made to help the Tampa Bay Buccaneers pull even. The struggling quarterback turned and handed the ball to DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart. Over and over. “I’m sure everybody in the stadium knew what we were going to do,” Williams said after the defending NFC South champions drove 80 yards in the closing minutes to beat the winless Bucs 28-21 on Sunday. “There were times they had nine in the box,” the running back added, “and we were still getting 7 or 8 yards.” A week after getting their first win over lowly Washington, the Panthers (2-3) rushed for 267 yards and three touchdowns to extend Tampa Bay’s worst start in 24 years. The Bucs (0-6) have started a season with six straight losses for the first time since 1985. They’ve dropped 10 in a row dating to a lopsided defeat at Carolina in December, a slide that’s their longest since 1977, when Tampa Bay was in the middle of an NFL-record 26game skid. Williams gained a seasonbest 152 yards on 30 carries and scored twice, including the winning TD with 29 seconds left. The 1-yard dive

capped a 16-play drive that took more than 8 minutes. “That takes tough guys, and we try to breed that,” Panthers coach John Fox said. Delhomme, who had thrown two interceptions in the second half, only attempted one pass in the winning drive – a 4-yarder for Steve Smith’s only reception of the game. Meanwhile, Williams carried eight times for 33 yards and Stewart gained 43 on seven attempts. “We got overpowered at the end, and really throughout the game,” Bucs rookie coach Raheem Morris said. Carolina (2-3) squandered a 21-7 lead, giving up a 97-yard kickoff return for a touchdown in the third quarter and watching Tampa Bay tie the game on Tanard Jackson’s 26yard interception return. But once the Panthers took the ball out of Delhomme’s hands, Williams and Stewart took over. Eleven of the 15 runs on the final drive gained 5 or more yards; none of them ended with no gain or a loss. Williams also scored on a 20-yard run in the second quarter. Stewart’s 26-yard TD run put Carolina up 21-7 late in the third quarter. Heading into Sunday, Carolina was averaging 97.3 yards on the ground – 23rd in the league. Delhomme was 9 of 17 for 65 yards and one TD.

HIT AND RUN ith their season riding in the balance, the Carolina Panthers rode DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart to a must win at Tampa Bay on Sunday. The Panthers’ dynamic duo combined for 262 yards and three touchdowns in a 28-21 victory over the winless, woeful Bucs, who could not stop the run. Carolina stands 2-3 and its hopes to make a playoff push keep flickering for at least another week. But it undoubtably would have been lights


out if not for a determined commitment to ground it out in Tampa. With the game tied 21-21, Carolina marched 80 yards on 16 plays in a drive that consumed more than eight minutes. Fifteen of the 16 plays were runs, culminated by Williams’ 1-yard plunge with 29 seconds to go. Carolina wisely threw the passing attack out the window down the stretch in favor of the “run left, run right, run up the middle” strategy. I don’t think the Panthers can run all the

way to the postseason, but with two super backs, an effective offensive line and a healthy Brad Hoover to clear the way, it’s worth a shot. The rest of the Panthers’ schedule figures to offer much stiffer resistance than the Bucs, losers of 10 straight. But a steady diet of power running and stingy defense might provide the perfect recipe for overcoming an 0-3 start. Time will tell.



Mark Ingram rushed for a career-high 246 yards and a game-clinching touchdown, powering Alabama to a 20-6 victory over South Carolina late Saturday night. Ingram’s tacklebreaking, defender-dragging runs and a punishing defense helped the Crimson Tide (7-0, 4-0 Southeastern Conference) overcome four turnovers – doubling their season total. Steve Spurrier’s Gamecocks (5-2, 2-2) had never beaten a team ranked higher than No. 3 and were hoping for their second win over a top-five team this season. Ingram didn’t let it happen. He was practically a one-man show on the decisive drive. He took the direct snap for five consecutive runs – including a 24-yarder and 22-yarder – and then took a pitch in from 4 yards out with 4:54 left. Ingram covered all 68 yards on the drive.

Chase drivers vent frustrations BY GREER SMITH ENTERPRISE SPORTS WRITER

THE LMS NOTEBOOK: CONCORD â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The burden of not doing well in the Chase continues to make drivers vent their frustrations toward NASCAR. Last week, it was Kasey Kahne wrongly accusing NASCAR of throwing a bogus caution for debris when there was something on the track. This week, Denny Hamlin took a shot at NASCAR for deciding the championship through the 10race Chase format after an engine failure Saturday night resulted in his second straight poor finish that ended his hopes of winning the title. Hamlin finished 42nd after leading 54 laps as a followup to wrecking and finishing 37th at Auto Club Speedway. He fell to 11th in points, 372 behind leader Jimmie Johnson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what stinks about this point system,â&#x20AC;? Hamlin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Your run your tail off for 24 weeks and it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to base your performance on 10 weeks. ... If

NEW YORK â&#x20AC;&#x201C; After a steady climb, Alabama has reached the top of the AP poll. The Crimson Tide jumped Florida and landed at No. 1 in The Associated Press Top 25 on Sunday. The unbeaten Gators had been in the top spot since the preseason, but the Crimson Tide has been gaining ground for weeks by winning more convincingly than the Gators. The final surge came after Alabama beat South Carolina 20-6 and Florida needed a field goal in the waning seconds to beat Arkansas 23-20 at home. The Crimson Tide, which received 10 firstplace votes last week, got 39 out of 59 from the media panel. Florida received the other 20 firstplace votes. Texas is No. 3, followed by Southern California, Cincinnati and Boise State at No. 6. The Broncos dropped a spot. The first BCS standings also came out Sun-

day and Florida was in first place, followed by Alabama, Texas and Boise State. Unbeaten Iowa moved up four places after beating Wisconsin 20-10 on the road. Miami, LSU and TCU round out the top 10. Alabama started the season ranked fifth, then immediately moved up a spot to fourth after beating Virginia Tech to start the season. After two weeks at No. 4, the Crimson Tide moved up another spot to No. 3. After three weeks behind Florida and Texas, Alabama jumped the Longhorns last week and finished the climb to No. 1 on Sunday. Alabama was No. 1 for five weeks in the second half of last season, including two weeks when SEC rival Florida was No. 2. Georgia Tech made the biggest jump in the rankings this week, moving up eight spots to No. 11 after beating Virginia Tech 28-23. Oregon is No. 12, followed by Penn State and Oklahoma State.

Survey: Technology drives one-third of furniture sales ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

HIGH POINT – During the next 12 months, folks in one-third of American households expect to purchase a piece of furniture that enhances the function or style of a new piece of home technology. That’s just one of the conclusions drawn from a national telephone survey this month by the American Home Furnishings Alliance.

Survey results show those most likely to purchase hometech furnishings include the 1934-year-old age group, followed by 35-44-year-olds with children living at home. Results of the survey were reported during the opening day press breakfast for the fall High Point Market. Nearly one-third (28 percent) of the younger age group characterize their bedroom

as “practical space,” versus 58 percent of 55-64-year-olds (and those with no children at home) who describe their bedrooms as “comfortable sanctuaries,” the AHFA report said. It also noted that those 35-44 and 45-54 in age most commonly describe their bedrooms as “adequate environments.” The study also revealed new furniture (bed, nightsstands and/or a dress-

er) “followed by flat screen TVs, nice artwork, lighting, a desk or writing table and a sofa or loveseat” were high on the list. “Sixty-eight percent of Americans plan to enhance their outdoor space in the coming year, starting with landscaping (42 percent),” the report said. “ Following and upgraded garden are additional outdoor seating (25 percent), lighting (24 per-

cent), dining furniture (21 percent), expanded deck space (17 percent), a fire pit (15 percent) and a gazebo or canopy (12 percent). AHFA’s study also showed 10 percent of respondents will buy only furnishings made in environmentally-friendly manner and 15 percent expect furnishings they buy will have green principle and processes.

Shoppers wait in the check-out line at a Toys R Us in New York in November 2008.

Toys R Us adds layaway for some items NEW YORK (AP) – Toys R Us Inc. is introducing a layaway program for larger-ticket items such as bikes and cribs ahead of the holiday season, the company said today. The largest U.S. toy retailer said the program is effective immediately in stores nationwide. Customers can put a variety of items on hold and make a series of payments until the item is paid in full. Layaway programs are financing agreements in which retailers

– without charging interest – hold merchandise for customers until they have finished paying in installments. Popular during the Great Depression, layaway had become largely a thing of the past before the recession hit. But Sears expanded its program for the holidays last year, and due to its popularity Sears and Kmart introduced an online option this year. Retailers who have introduced the

programs see them as a way to keep customers buying in a time of tight credit and other economic problems. Toys R Us CEO Gerald Storch said his company’s customers were requesting a layaway program. There’s currently no online layaway at Toys R Us, though there might be in the future, the company said. The Wayne, N.J.-based company said the program is likely to keep going after the holidays, though terms may change.

Retailers to have biggest impact on Wall Street this week NEW YORK (AP) – After getting worrisome signs about consumers from bankers’ earnings reports, investors will be looking at a broad range of companies this week for further insights into the outlook for the economy. Consumer-focused companies including Apple Inc., McDonald’s Corp., appliance maker Whirlpool Corp. and toy maker Hasbro Inc. are among those reporting results during the week. Airlines, drug companies and more big banks also are scheduled to release their earnings. The market is so focused on companies’ third-quarter results and their outlooks for the coming months that economic data like the September existing home sales report expected this week isn’t likely to move the market much. “Right now earnings are critical,” said Channing

Smith, a vice president at Capital Advisors in Tulsa, Okla. “Earnings, revenues give us a better picture of what’s happening. If the economic data turns out well, its just the cherry on the sundae.” Investors got a surge of op-

timism from results in the early part of last week and bought stocks enthusiastically. The buying Wednesday sent the Dow Jones industrials over 10,000 for the first time in a year. On Thursday and Friday, though, the news from

Citigroup Inc. and Bank of America Corp. gave investors a reality check, as both banks reported billions of dollars in loan losses because consumers are struggling to pay their bills. That spate of bad news brought the market’s rally to a halt. While investors aren’t concentrating on economic data right now, they will be interested in what the Federal Reserve has to say about where the economy is now and where it’s like to be in the near future. Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke speaks today at the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco Asia Economic Policy Conference and Friday at a Fed conference in Boston on financial regulation and supervision after the credit crisis. The Fed is scheduled to release its beige book report on Wednesday, which breaks down economic activity on a regional basis.

REYKJAVIK, Iceland (AP) – Iceland has agreed to repay Britain and the Netherlands $5.7 billion it borrowed to compensate savers who lost funds in the collapse of an Icelandic Internet bank, the government said Sunday. Prime Minister Johanna Sigurdardottir’s office said the three countries agreed on a repayment plan, after her government overcame heavy domestic opposition to pass the program through Iceland’s parliament in August. Iceland will pay 2.3 billion pounds ($3.8 billion) to Britain and 1.3 billion euros ($1.9 billion) to the Netherlands from 2016, with payments spread over several years and loosely tied to the pace of the island nation’s re-

covery from the global economic crisis. Britain and Netherlands agreed in June to lend Iceland the funds to reimburse customers of failed Internet bank Icesave, but rejected an earlier deal that would have linked repayments more explicitly to the country’s economic growth. Many in Iceland had opposed the repayment plan, dubbed the “Icesave bill.” Critics said it would force the tiny North Atlantic nation to make repayments it could not afford. Health Minister Ogmundur Jonasson resigned last month in protest. Iceland needed to agree to a program to settle the debts to be allowed to draw on $4.6 billion in promised bailout funds from the International Monetary Fund and Nordic countries.

White House aides: All options for creating jobs are ‘on the table’ WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama is considering all options to create jobs, including another stimulus package, while trying to pull the economy out of a deep recession and deal with a record deficit, White House advisers said Sunday. With more than half of the $787 billion recovery package yet to be spent, Obama aides said the administration is not ready to commit to additional measures. “Everything is on the table,” senior adviser Valerie Jarrett said. “You’ve got this huge

national deficit and we’ve got to do what we can to bring that down. At the same time, it’s important to stimulate the economy,” Jarrett said. Unemployment stands at 9.8 percent, with more than 4 million jobs lost this year. The deficit has reached $1.4 trillion and the national debt $11.9 trillion. Adviser David Axelrod cited progress on reviving the economy but warned that the government should not make the mistake of ending its recovery initiatives too early.

Sheriff: Balloon saga a hoax; charges expected FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The story that a little boy had floated away in a giant helium balloon was a hoax concocted to land a reality television show, authorities said, and the boyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parents will likely face felony charges. The stunt was a marketing ploy by Richard and Mayumi Heene, who have appeared on the ABC reality show â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wife Swap,â&#x20AC;? Larimer County Sheriff Jim Al-

derden said. The Heenes have reportedly been working on a reality TV deal. Falcon Heene, 6, may not have even been hiding in the rafters of the familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s garage during the intense five-hour search for him Thursday, Alderden said. Denver attorney David Lane, who is representing the parents, says his clients are willing to turn themselves in to face any charges.

Typhoon Lupit, roaring over the Pacific Ocean with sustained winds of 108 mph and gusts of 130 mph, will likely spare the capital, Manila, but could slam into other parts of the north in about three days, chief weather forecaster Prisco Nilo said. The Philippines is still grappling with the deadly aftermath of Tropical Storm Ketsana, which
