ment to strengthen requirements of the university to mitigate impacts on adjacent properties. The commission unanimously recommended approval of the plan. Since 2004, HPU has added about 46 acres to its campus and has expressed a need for an additional 20 to 25 acres in the next three to six years. Don Scarborough, vice president of community relations for HPU, reiterated concerns voiced to the commission last month, such as the plan’s discouragement of the demolition of residential homes purchased by the university, but expressed overall support for the document.

“We do think this is a good guide for us and the city over time,” he said. During a public hearing on the plan, Fifth Court resident Mitchell Whitaker spoke against it, explaining that he and two of his neighbors are in the first phase of potential campus expansion and already have endured negative effects from recent construction. “Our main concern is that the university should own whole blocks before they request a rezoning,” he said. “We’re all willing to sell our homes, but a fair or suitable offer (from HPU) has not been made.” | 888-3531

He hasn’t seen the number of jobs decrease at Showplace during the economic downturn, but the time that he uses the employees has decreased. “We used to have workers at the loading docks for about two to three weeks around market,” he said. “Now, we keep them here for about 10 days.” Davidson County Community College student Chris Applegate was also working at the High Point Market on Monday, passing out flyers on Main Street for a company called BidCow. com. “It’s hard to find a job anywhere now,” Applegate said. “There are a lot

Thomasville OKs funds to pay for spill costs BY DARRICK IGNASIAK ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

THOMASVILLE – The Thomasville City Council on Monday night appropriated $141,500 to pay for costs related to the recent sewer spill of 15.93 million gallons. As part of a list of actions to reduce the risk of future spills, the funds will pay $17,500 of legal services and $89,000 for maintenance and construction engineering. The funds also will pay for $35,000 of fines and penalties for sewer spills. Earlier this month, the city of Thomasville said it would hire Pease and Associates Consulting Engineers to analyze the city’s sewer collection system and prioritize rehabilitation needs. The city also hired Brown and Caldwell, an environmental consulting firm, to review city records and other data

to investigate the size, causes, duration and any environmental impact, including any impact to High Rock Lake and its tributaries. The law firm of Brooks Pierce also will conduct an investigation into the handling of the spill. Before the City Council voted on the appropriations, City Manager Kelly Craver and City Attorney Paul Mitchell described why the city has decided to put the plan in action. “It is through this multifaceted approach the city strives to find the truth in this manner, improve the performance of our employees and improve the sewer collection system,” Craver said. “In the end, the goal is to prevent the likelihood of any event of this nature from occurring again.” “As the manager has just advised you, from the outset we felt the need

to hire outside independent consultants of the very first rank because we felt like with all the allegations that we had been less candid with the public in underreporting the spill,” Mitchell added. “We felt like if we were the citizens of Thomasville or residents of High Rock Lake, we would be much more confident (with) information coming from an outside consultant.” Mitchell, who said he lives on the Yadkin River, and Craver shared data from samples taken on High Rock Lake. According to Mitchell, samples taken by the Yadkin River/Pee-Dee River Basin Authority and Craver, who tested the water himself on a Sea-Doo, indicated that High Rock Lake’s water met all environmental standards. The untreated wastewater spill, which began July 13 and ended Aug. 4, spilled 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. | 888-3657

Three inducted into Furniture Hall of Fame ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

HIGH POINT – Three veterans of the home furnishings industry were inducted into the American Furniture Hall of Fame during a banquet ceremony this past weekend. Joe Carroll, publisher of Furniture/Today, M. Farooq Kathwari, president, chairman and chief executive officer of Ethan Allen, and Steven M. Kincaid, president of Kincaid Furniture Co., join the other 78 Hall of Fame members. The ceremony




took place during the fall High Point Market, which officially concludes Thursday. “Continuing the long tradition of the Hall of Fame, the three new members represent the highest standards, ingenu-

ity and achievements of our industry globally,” said Donald Belgrad, president of the American Furniture Hall of Fame Foundation. Carroll was recognized for his long guidance of Furniture/Today and his involvement in the industry, such as helping organize and chair the International Alliance of Furnishings Publications. Kathwari was honored for his efforts to keep Ethan Allen an innovator, with design centers globally and nine manufactur-

tion about their professional achievements, personal standards and civic involvement. The voting period began July 1 and ended Aug. 24.

“And a lot of the laid-off workers that we employ just say, ‘I’m glad to have a job doing something now.’ ” He said about 25 people found employment at the loading docks at Showplace this year. “Market absolutely cannot happen without these people,” he said. | 888-3617

Vaccine shortage delays H1N1 shot clinics BY DAVID NIVENS ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER


GUILFORD COUNTY – Many adults may have to wait until after Christmas to get a swine flu shot. That’s how health officials read the numbers so far. Overall, the county may get no more than 80,000 vaccines by the end of December. “I was told early on we’d have enough vaccine for everyone,” Dr. Ward Robinson, county medical director, told the Guilford County Board of Health on Monday. “If we are to get 80,000 doses, most of them will have to go to children. We have 70,000 kids in the schools.” Robinson said the health department will focus on children 6 months and older and college students. “If we vaccinate the children, the epidemic will stop,” Robinson said. “That is what happened in Japan.” Early supplies of the H1N1 vaccine are arriving slower than anticipated because the vaccine is difficult to make, Robinson said.

Seasonal flu: The health department has free seasonal influenza vaccines for children. Adults can search for vaccine clinics at Appointments: Parents can call 641-5563 for a Greensboro appointment and 845-7655 for High Point. The agency has both the seasonal inhaled nasal spray and the injectable vaccine for children. “It takes five months, and there is a lot of potential for contamination,” Robinson said. Robinson had planned five vaccine clinics in the schools and other public venues this fall. “We had hoped for a full course of vaccine so we could vaccinate everyone at the same time,” Robinson said. “That won’t be possible now.” This week, the state is eligible for about 103,000 doses to be di-

vided among county health departments and doctors’ offices. Guilford County could get as many as 5,100 doses this week, but at least 42 health care providers will get a share. Last week’s allotment from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which is managing the nation’s supply, was 180,000 doses for the state. “It is hard to plan distribution when you don’t know how many vaccines you will get,” Robinson said. Meanwhile, health officials received 4,000 calls Monday about swine flu shots. Health officials have scheduled appointments through November, Robinson said. “We expect a long season,” said county Health Director Merle Green. Medical laboratories stopped production of seasonal flu vaccine to start the H1N1 vaccines early. “But we should be covered for seasonal flu vaccine for children,” Robinson said. “The pressure for it is not what we have seen for H1N1.”

Varner favors creation of town center

Bridges puts priority on I-85 areas ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

TRINITY — Karen Bridges is seeking re-election to the Ward 3 seat on the Trinity City Council. She and her husband, Dave, have lived in the city for 27 years. She previously served on Trinity’s Planning and Zoning Board from 1997 to 2001 and has been on the City Council for eight years. She has a master’s degree in psychology from East Carolina University and works full time for Youth Focus, a nonprofit agency that serves youth.

It is crucial we develop our two interchanges on I-85 to increase our tax base and sewer usage. Trinity is making improvements to Turnpike Industrial Park to help the small businesses there and to attract other small businesses. We are in the process of adopting a small area plan for the center of town, which gives a general blueprint for the development in the center of town where we’re getting sewer. 3. What should be the relationship between Trinity and Archdale, and what cooperative efforts do you see that the two cities can take to better northern Randolph County?

Trinity and Archdale have a relationship of respectful collaboration. Our residents have interconnected for years through church, school and sports and social venues. Because the two cities make up the fastest-growing part of Randolph County, cooperation between the two cities gives us added clout to get things done that are mutually beneficial. Archdale agreed to provide sewer to the Darr Road section of Trinity, which allowed the City to get a Community Block Development Grant to help that neighborhood which had many failing septic tanks. We are currently partnering with Archdale and Randolph County to build a waste water treatment plant that will serve both cities for years to come.

Someone tell leaders government is out of money People who work for a living know that when they do not have any money, they stop spending. This is something our government does not understand. We have a deficit, we cannot balance the budget. Social Security is running at a deficit because it lent our money to the government. And they threw it away. Medicare and Medicaid are full of abuse and fraud because too many employees of the government are in positions of authority, and they cannot be fired. This is not good management. Even if a health care plan was a good idea, we have to consider the fact that the government does not have any money, and due to the millions who are unemployed, instead of contributing to this country, they are having to be assisted by the government. What kind of people have we elected who cannot understand the simple fact that the country does not have any money? BILLY R. HUGHES Lexington

Make elected representatives answer important questions I pick up the Sunday paper most weeks. I am amazed that there is rarely any “news” about what the positions are of Sens. Hagan and Burr and Rep. Watt on current



legislative issues. The issues are all over the news about what is going on. But we the people have no clue what our elected officials are thinking. I write them and never get a response. I call them and the phone attendant replies, “Thank you for your concern.” I’m not suggesting you waste ink on the political blah-blah that they are for the children, quality education, good health care, high wage jobs, etc, etc., etc., ad nauseam. Nor am I interested in reading about what they don’t like about someone else’s prattle. I want to know what they think and are doing about the big issues that is their job in Washington. Shouldn’t we in the electorate have news like this about them? Do you ever call these people asking them their position on current events? If they don’t reply, why not put your questions on the front page and say, “Your elected representative would seem to not be interested in letting you know what they think.” If they reply with blah-blah, insist on substance. If you still get blah-blah, tell the readers on the editorial page what you are getting. Then maybe the electorate will get it. BILL COUCH High Point

GOP wants Bush’s ‘winning’ strategy for Afghanistan As the Republicans search in desperation for some resemblance of a winning ideology, past or present, they have of late started to identify what they call the “winning strategy” used in Bush’s war of choice in Iraq without defining the definition of what winning is. We still have 146,000 of the 170,000+ American troops, and 200,000 civilian contractors in Iraq, all being paid for by the Pentagon adding $4.6 billion per month to the already $1.3 trillion deficit for Bush’s war. Former President Bush’s war is one that is still taking lives and casualties of our military along with tens of thousands of Iraqis killed and hundreds of thousands displaced and a general population claiming that their standard of living, notably water, electric, education and health care was more available under Saddam Hussein’s regime than presently under our occupation. Not all is so bleak, Exxon-Mobil did acquire a $19 billion contract to develop Iraqi oil fields with the expectation of speeding up our independent need for foreign

oil, capitalism at its finest. Surely you all remember when crude topped $150 a barrel and gasoline was $4+ a gallon, and Exxon-Mobil posted the highest profit margins of any American industry, $68 billion. I wonder what affect $200 or $300 per barrel of crude would have on their profit margins. Now, the Republicans are supporting the use of the same strategy on the war that Bush deserted in Afghanistan sometime back now saying “It is a winning strategy.” They might not have oil, as a sponsored commodity, but maybe we can corner the market on almonds and pomegranates, since we already have an abundance of their No. 1 most lucrative commodity. Just how many of these wars can we afford to win? Republicans, wrong again. WILLIAM T. “NICK” SMITH Wilson

igh Point’s West End neighborhood has experienced phenomenal change during the last 10 years. And West End Ministries has been a leader in efforts to revitalize that neighborhood. Now, that well-known community organization has kicked off a fundraising effort to support a growth and development plan that would help the group better position itself to keep the West End neighborhood revitalization effort moving forward. West End Ministries, led by Executive Director Judy Mendenhall, and High Point civic leader and Realtor Ed Price are heading a drive to raise at least $525,000 during the next 18 months to fund plans West End Ministries has for improving and enlarging its English Road facilities. One might say this isn’t the greatest time to begin a fund drive of that size, but the big news is that the drive is more than halfway there – sort of. An anonymous donor has pledged $275,000 toward the goal if the remaining $250,000 can be raised by West End Ministries. But in typical Judy Mendenhall fashion, she’s not aiming for $250,000. ... She’s aiming for $325,000, a total of $600,000, so that in addition to planned improvements, an endowment can be established to help provide longterm financial stability. Ministries officials want to use the funds to build a larger thrift store, a community center, a proposed banquet hall/gym and a playground. The facilities would allow the organization to centralize its community programs such as the thrift store, food pantry and Kids Cafe and provide the opportunity to expand services to the West End community. West End Ministries leaders and their supporters are taking a leap of faith as they commence a fund drive during these economic times. But they are correct that the community’s needs are great and only will become greater if the organization waits for better financial times. We wish West End Ministries leaders success, and have a suspicion they will achieve it.

The Left-wingers in American politics need a new label


ou probably won’t find an adult more Disney-friendly than I am. So I mean no disrespect when I say this. Left-wingers in America ought to shed their “liberal” and “progressive” names and give themselves a more accurate label: imagineers. They need a new label. I’m delighted that the Left has decided to stop (mis)using the term “liberal” to describe their big-government philosophy. I’d like to rehabilitate the term so that limited-government folks can reclaim it as the proper term for our philosophy of liberty. As for “progressive,” expanding the size, scope and cost of government is hardly a recipe for progress of any kind. Now consider the virtues of the term “imagineer.” It associates the cause with a popular cultural institution. And it more accurately reflects what the modern Left believes. The Right believes that human progress is possible but only if policymakers first accept the reality of human nature. The Left believes that reality can be rewritten – imagineered, if you will – simply by passing a law. There’s a good example in the current health care debate. One of the key legislative goals of the Democrats in Congress is to forbid health insurers from charging different premiums to men and women who are otherwise similar in age and background. There is a difference. A Blue Cross comprehensive policy with a $2,500 deductible costs a 38-year-old Durham man $182 a month. For a Durham woman of the same age, the cost jumps to $269. The price differential is similar among other insurers. Now, when the Left hears such a thing, the inevitable response is legislation. When the Right hears such a thing, the inevitable response is, first, investigation. Insurance premiums aren’t just pulled out of

thin air on a whim. They reflect expected costs. The reality is that young and middle-aged women tend to consume more care and thus make greater claims on their insurers than their male counterparts do. However, by their 50s men start OPINION costing more than women to insure – and their premiums are, John correspondingly, higher. Hood Legislation can’t just make ■■■ inconvenient facts magically disappear. If women make greater medical claims than men but can’t legally be charged more, government will have made health insurance artificially cheap for women and artificially expensive for men. In the latter case, fewer men on the margin – those relatively young and healthy – will bother to buy health insurance if given a choice. The Left engages in wishful thinking all the time. Leftist legislators raised the minimum wage – the cost of hiring relatively young, relatively unskilled workers – and then denied the obvious reality that fewer of these workers would be employed as a result. Now, youth unemployment is skyrocketing. In education, the environment, and so many other areas, they assume that good intentions will lead to good results. They assume wrongly. Like one of Mickey Mouse’s most memorable roles, they play with forces they don’t understand and can’t control. They should call themselves “imagineers.” That will allow free-marketeers to describe ourselves, accurately, as the liberal progressives.

U.N. nuke agency: Iran CASH FOR talks start well GOLD

VIENNA (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Talks to persuade Iran to move most of its enriched uranium out of the country have gotten off to a â&#x20AC;&#x153;good start,â&#x20AC;? the head of the U.N. nuclear agency said Monday. The comments by Mohamed ElBaradei, who heads the International Atomic Energy Agency, were significant because Iran earlier had signaled it would not meet Western demands for a deal under which it would send most of its enriched material abroad â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a move that would delay its ability

to potentially make a nuclear bomb. Tehran has said it needs enriched uranium for nuclear fuel. But the West fears it could be used to make weapons, and the U.S. says Iran is now one to six years away from being able to do so. Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Vienna talks between Iran and the U.S., Russia and France were focused on a technical issue with huge strategic ramifications â&#x20AC;&#x201C; whether Iran is ready to farm out some of its uranium enrichment program to a foreign country.

There is no furniture to be seen in the Carolina Rivers of Art LLC showroom, which she designed to be a gallery, but there are oil paintings of Pilot Mountain, Seagrove pottery pieces and sculptures created by a North Carolinian blacksmith. Ben Owen, a nationally known Seagrove potter, said the market was a perfect outlet for local artists. “We feel like we’re showing some of the homegrown, handmade items that are idigineous to this region,”


HIGH POINT – After working as a sales assistant in showrooms for 11 years, Becky Matamoros noticed there weren’t many artists who displayed their work at the High Point Market. “A lot of people in our area have lived here their entire lives and don’t understand how to show at market,” she said. “It’s important that the world sees what High Point people have to offer as well as for High Point to see what the world has to offer.” A painter and art enthusiast, Matamoros decided to open an unconventional showroom at 200 N.

THOMASVILLE – Harley Grace Smith, the 12-week-old heart transplant candidate profiled in The High Point Enterprise on Sunday, died Sunday afternoon at Duke University Medical Center. Harley’s parents, Justin and Heather Smith of Thomasville, made the difficult decision to take their daughter off of life support around 2 p.m. Sunday, and she died within a few minutes. “We wanted to stop her pain,” Heather Smith said Monday. “Her kidneys were failing, and she was having all kinds of problems – one thing after another.” Harley, who was born July 21 in High Point, was diagnosed with truncus arteriosus, a heart defect that prevents blood flowing from the heart to be as oxygenated as it needs to be. She also had a leaky heart valve. Harley underwent three openheart surgeries at Duke to repair the valve, but they were unsuccessful. Doctors determined a heart transplant was Harley’s only remaining option, but one never became available. Meanwhile, an ECMO machine did for Harley what her own heart could not, but her frail body – particularly her kidneys – began to fail, leading the couple to take Harley off of life support. The Smiths had turned their daughter’s life over to God. “If she doesn’t make it,” Heather said in Sunday’s article, “she’ll be home in heaven, and she’s gonna have a healthy heart with God.” The funeral will be held at 2 p.m. Wednesday at New Grace Baptist Church in Thomasville. Burial will follow in Floral Garden Park Cemetery in High Point. | 888-3579


Harley spent six weeks on an ECMO machine, which performs what her damaged heart could not.


Trinity town planner Adam Stumb talks about the Center City Plan at the intersection of Meadowbrook Drive and N.C. 62. The town would like to re-engineer the intersection.

Trinity to consider city plan tonight




TRINITY – The Trinity City Council will consider a plan tonight that list the priorities of creating a city park, building a new city hall and establishing a downtown for Trinity. At 7 p.m., the City Council will hold a public hearing on the Trinity Center City Plan before voting on it. A draft of the plan, which has been approved by the city’s planning and zoning board, was presented to the public last month. “One of the key focuses of the plan is to actually create a Village Center,” City Manager Ann Bailie said last week. “We all know that Trinity right now doesn’t have a real center.” According to Adam Stumb, the city’s planning and zoning administrator, the plan will “create some sort of identity” for the center of Trinity. He said the plan “lays the ground work for creating a downtown for Trinity, something that the city doesn’t have right now.” City officials have said the Center City plan sets out the future for the Old Town area of N.C. 62 from Trinity High School Road to Sealy Drive.


Trinity planners envision a town park in the wooded section next to the Trinity City Hall complex . According to Stumb, this is the area where Trinity College, which later became known as Duke University, was located. The city’s Web site also states the Center City Plan will encompass the historical and cultural area of the city that built up around Trinity College, as well as the relatively undeveloped areas between N.C. 62 and Surrett Drive. Under the Center City Plan, Trinity will maintain a mix of commercial businesses and offices that are more residential in their appearance in the Old Town area. If the City Council approves the plan, goals in the plan that will be carried


out include seeking grant funding for the city park and renaming N.C. 62 within the city limits as “Main Street.” The plan also calls for building a new city hall, which would move the city’s two facilities into one, to anchor the southern entrance of the Village Center. City officials have said they are planning for the future because sewer is going to because sewer is going to be extended to the Surrett Drive area by 2011. The majority of the plans will depend of the economy, Stumb said. | 888-3657

The Parents Council recently donated $250,000 to name the second-floor overlook at the new Communication School in honor of HPU President Nido Qubein, for whom the school is named. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Parents of our students and alumni have made substantial gifts designated toward capital projects, such as a new baseball training facility and the inter-

active gaming lab in the Qubein School of Communication,â&#x20AC;? said Bill Doerr, HPU senior director of institutional advancement. In addition, alumni and friends have donated $1.2 million for scholarships for deserving students, Doerr said. Other gifts of more than $500,000 have been made through the estates of prominent alumni and friends, he added. The university has raised more than $110 million in gifts in the past four years for a $300 million campus upgrade and has seen its revenues go from $30 million to $100 million at the same time.

No excuses are needed if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to drink D

ear Abby: I was thrilled to read â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sober in Scottsdaleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;sâ&#x20AC;? (July 28) letter about drinking. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a 21-year- old college student who has also struggled with choosing to be sober amidst the majority of my drunken peers. Most people my age drink only to get drunk and appear to be unable to have fun without the aid of alcohol. Every activity must be performed under the influence. While at a nightclub, one friend asked me how I was able to â&#x20AC;&#x153;dance and have a good time without being drunk.â&#x20AC;? Abby, in your response to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sober,â&#x20AC;? you said that drinkers should â&#x20AC;&#x153;mind their own businessâ&#x20AC;? because â&#x20AC;&#x153;there is usually a good reason why a person doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t drink.â&#x20AC;? For me, there is no medical, metabolic or addiction problem that prevents me from consuming alcohol. But I have seen the effects it has on my peers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; putting them in drunken stupors, using awful judgment, and being taken to the hospital after blacking out. I left the college of my choice after one month because I could no longer stand hearing people in the bathroom vomiting all night long. Drinkers arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ashamed of these displays. They brag about them to their friends the next day. I sure hope this stage is one that will pass with age. I often long for the days when I was younger, when playing board games and sipping juice was considered a good time. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Not Drinking In New Jersey

Dear Not Drinking: Apparently binge drinking is still a rite of passage for some ADVICE college students. Dear I would Abby like to adâ&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  dress one comment you made in your letter. With some young people, binge drinking is a phase that passes as they learn their limit â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but with others it can be a pattern that begins in their teens and sometimes even younger. Read on for more comments from readers who feel as you do:

Dear Abby: I chose to be a non-drinker when my children became teenagers. I wanted to show them that I could have a good time without drinking, and I think it was an important lesson. Parents need to seriously consider the messages they convey. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m shocked that some allow underage drinking in their homes. One mother who had a party in her home told me the kids were drinking there for the â&#x20AC;&#x153;learning experience.â&#x20AC;? I got so annoyed I asked her if she was also providing hookers, since many of the teens were probably sexually inexperienced too. She didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what to say. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Venting In South Windsor, Conn. Dear Abby: You said

thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s usually a good reason why a person doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t drink. Canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it just be my choice? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not an alcoholic, and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take medication that alcohol would react adversely with. I enjoy an occasional glass of wine or other alcoholic beverage, but I do not need to drink in order to have a good time. And there is nothing â&#x20AC;&#x153;wrongâ&#x20AC;? with me if I choose to refrain from indulging. More people should make the same choice. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Cheryl In Madison, Ala. Dear Abby: I choose not to drink so I can be the designated driver should the need arise. My dad was a member of AA. And, quite frankly, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d rather use my calories on cake than a drink. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Designated Driver, Cedar Park, Texas Dear Abby: Why should a person need a reason not to drink? The question that should be asked is, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why are these people drinking?â&#x20AC;? Personally, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Scottsdale.â&#x20AC;? I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like the taste of alcohol, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like the effects and, more important, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like the death statistics associated with drinkers and those unfortunates who end up in their paths. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Donna In Lake City, Fla.

saw higher rates of teen pregnancy. Many experts credit the downward trend in pregnancies to prevention programs. Guilford County uses the six-week Smart Girls Life Skills Training program. The major goal is to help young women develop the skills necessary to choose positive life options. All participants must have parental permission. Since 1994, the program has reached more than 1,200 girls a year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Keeping these programs strong and offering them in more communities is crucial to maintaining a positive trend in our pregnancy rates,â&#x20AC;? said Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Campaign of North Carolina (APPCNC) Executive Director Kay Phillips. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We must not let these programs get lost as state and local dollars get harder and harder to come by.â&#x20AC;?

heirs may not be a contact sport, but high school crosscountry runners are not exempt from injury. In fact, injuries are quite common and are due to overuse, overtraining or a biomechanical flaw in body structure and/or motion. Common injuries include: â&#x20AC;˘ Runnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s knee, a wearing away of the back of the kneecap, causing pain. This can occur because of decreased strength of the quadricep muscles or shoes that do not give proper support. â&#x20AC;˘ Stress fractures, can be caused by overtraining, a shortage of calcium or by biomechanical flaws in running style or body structure. â&#x20AC;˘ Iliotibial band syndrome, a ligament that runs along the outside of the thigh, from the top of the hip to the outside of the knee. It stabilizes the hip and knee during running, but when it thickens and rubs over the bone, the area can become inflamed, or the band may become irritated, causing pain. â&#x20AC;˘ Shin splints, most commonly occur on the inside of the lower leg and usually result from biomechanical flaws in your foot and/or overtraining. â&#x20AC;˘ Plantar fasciitis, results in pain in the middle of the arch of the foot, most frequently caused by abnormal motion of the foot or too tight calf muscles. â&#x20AC;˘ Achilles tendonitis, occurs from abnormal foot strike in push-off and calf muscles that are too tight. â&#x20AC;˘ Muscle strain/pulls, could be in the hamstring, quads or any muscle and may result from the muscle not being flexible enough and/or overexerting specific muscles. â&#x20AC;˘ Ankle sprains, might happen when running on uneven surfaces or when stepping awkwardly off of a curb. â&#x20AC;˘ Blisters, especially on the feet, are usually caused by friction combined with excessive moisture. Running injuries when training are generally associated with high volumes and rapid changes in intensity. Too many runners fall into the trap of overtraining and not taking sufficient rest. To optimize training, find the correct balance between training and recovery. To maximize performance, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget to include adequate rest. More is not always best.

Paget’s Disease is due to out-of-control bone remodeling


ear Dr. Donohue: Four months ago, I was diagnosed with Paget’s disease. Cortisone shots haven’t helped me. Pain medicine works, but it messes up my body. I have been active for a 65-year-old, but I am very limited now because of hip pain. I searched the Internet but found no cure for this disease. I feel helpless and depressed. Is there a treatment that I haven’t found? – M.B.


At the start, let me introduce you to the Paget Foundation, your best friend even though you haven’t yet made its acquaintance. The foundation will provide you and all other patients with information on the latest treatments and help you get established in a program. Call (800) 23-PAGET or visit the Internet site at www.paget. org. Medicines and other treatments can control most Paget’s disease. From the day of birth until the day of death, bones undergo constant remodeling. One crew of bone cells, called osteoclasts, tears down bone. Its partner crew, osteoblasts, builds new bone. In Paget’s, breakdown suddenly speeds up. To compensate, rebuilding also speeds up, but the new bone is haphazardly constructed, and this leads to bone deformities. Furthermore, the new bone is of poor quality and is subject to breaking. Overgrown bone can press on adjacent nerves and cause pain, and it















can invade joints and lead to arthritis. The skull, the pelvis, backbones, the hip and HEALTH thigh, and the tibia Dr. Paul (the larger Donohue lower leg ■■■ bone) are the bones most often affected. This isn’t such a rare illness. Around 2 percent of people over 55 have it. Many are without symptoms, and often the illness is discovered when an X-ray is taken for some unrelated reason. Elevation of alkaline phosphatase, found by blood test, is another clue of Paget’s disease. People without symptoms don’t need treatment; you do. Medicines used for osteoporosis are used in Paget’s disease – drugs like Reclast, Fosamax and Actonel. Dear Dr. Donohue: Is it likely that an 87-yearold lady would develop Paget’s disease? – J.P. Paget’s bone disease strikes mostly older people. A woman of 87 could come down with it. Or the woman could have had the illness much longer. She might have had no symptoms until now. Many Paget’s disease patients are without symptoms, some for life. Others develop symptoms when the Paget’s bone presses on nerves or joints. Or the breaking of a bone can reveal Paget’s

disease. Paget’s bone is fragile and easily broken. Dear Dr. Donohue: My husband died only minutes after we had sex. Did the sex cause a heart attack? If so, why? He was 69, and he did have a cardiac history. – N.A. You have my sincerest sympathy on the untimely death of your husband and the circumstances of his death. Sexual activity is not strenuous physical exertion. It’s the equivalent of walking a mile in half an hour, not tremendously taxing exercise. Furthermore, it’s not dangerous activity for most people with heart disease. Even after a heart attack, sex is permitted in three to four weeks. Anger is much more likely to provoke a heart attack than is sex. Having said this, I have to admit that it’s hard not to relate your husband’s death to sex since the two were so closely related in time. A heart attack or heart-rhythm disturbance is the most probable explanation. Your husband’s heart arteries must have been quite clogged with cholesterol and fat. It’s not outlandish to speculate that he would have had a heart attack in doing any minor physical work. DR. DONOHUE regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible. Readers may write him or request an order form of available health newsletters at P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; San Francisco police are investigating the death of a man whose body was found inside a city bus that had been parked in a transit yard for hours after a rush-hour shift. Authorities say a cleaning crew discovered the body of 37-yearold Christopher Feasel of San Francisco over the weekend. They are try-

Lyn Tomioka says investigators will check surveillance video around the yard. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not clear whether cameras on the bus were working.

FORT COLLINS, Colo.

donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t anticipate finishing reports and presenting them to the district attorneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office until next week. It will then be up to prosecutors to decide whether to file charges against Richard or Mayumi Heene.

“Coconut,” artwork from High Point’s Mercury Originals, features license plates from Hawaii.

License to ‘steel’ Company turns odds and ends into unusual wall art BY JIMMY TOMLIN ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER


IGH POINT – Who says it ain’t easy being green? Michael Miller, the owner and co-founder of High Point-based Mercury Originals, may not actually find it easy being green, but he sure makes it look easy with his unique, eyecatching wall art, which he fashions from such vintage items as used bicycle wheels, saw blades, headlights and license plates. The collection is making its debut at this week’s High Point Market. “These pieces are 100-percent green, all recyclable,” says Miller’s wife, Donnette Miller,

’Our slogan is basically, “If you can imagine it, we can build it.”’ Donnette Miller Vice president, Mercury Originals who is also the company’s vice president. “It’s all vintage parts. Sometimes you’ll see stuff that’s not vintage, but it’s been reproduced to look vintage, but this is all recycled parts.” Consider, for example, “Tex,” a Texas-themed piece whose design incorporates a bicycle wheel adorned with pressure

gauges, wrenches, a cowboy spur, assorted washers and more than a dozen license plates from the Lone Star State. Another piece, M. Miller “Coconut,” features the rainbow-colored license plates of Hawaii, while “North of the Border” incorporates plates from Alberta and British Columbia. If license plates seem to be a recurring theme, that’s because they are. All of the pieces thus far – including a couple of mirrors – incorporate the plates, but the next few pieces – set to debut in January – will not. Where do the individual items – including the license plates – in each piece come from? “We scavenge,” Donnette explains. “We go to flea markets, trade shows, salvage yards – a little bit of everywhere. And some of the stuff has come from our own shop, like the saw blades. And everything is made right here in High Point.” According to Donnette, the unique wall art could work well in one of several locations. “It works really well in vacation homes,” she says. “It would be good in a game room or even in a living area for something fun over the fireplace. Also, some restaurants like to have unique things like this on display.” The pieces wholesale for $249 each.


Gauges, keys, springs and spokes comprise this creation. Thus far, the art pieces have been well-received, Donnette says. “We’ve gotten great feedback,” she says. “People say it’s unique and different, and they like the idea of using recyclable materials. I think they like the idea of seeing something that was dumped and was gonna get melted down – I think they like seeing it as a piece of art. And if these were just reproduced pieces, I don’t think they would have the same appeal.” In addition to the wall art,


Mercury Originals makes fine custom furniture and industrialstyle furniture. Examples can be found on the company’s Web site, www.mercuryoriginals. com. “Our slogan is basically, ‘If you can imagine it, we can build it,’” Donnette says. “Mike is a master craftsman. He’s been in the home furnishings business for 30 years, and he can build anything.” This week, he’ll see if he can build a following. | 888-3579

The Northwest Area Health Education Center (AHEC) of Wake Forest University School of Medicine and the Special Olympics of North Carolina will sponsor a conference to address issues affecting developmentally disabled individuals and the challenges they face living in mainstream society. The conference, “Developmental Disabilities through the Lifespan,” will be held Oct. 30 at the Embassy Suites Hotel in downtown Winston-Salem. The conference will feature keynote speakers Timothy P. Shriver, chairman of the Special Olympics, and Derrick Dufresne, founder and senior partner of Community Resource Alliance (CRA). CRA is a training and management consultation firm that provides the resources necessary to enable people who have disabilities, their friends and their families to participate in and benefit from life within their communities. Entertainment will be provided by Chris Burke with Joe and John DeMasi. Burke is best known for his role as Charles “Corky” Thatcher on the ABC-TV show “Life Goes On” and his recurring role as Taylor on the CBS-TV show “Touched By An Angel.” This conference is recommended for health-care professionals including physicians, nurses, pharmacists, dentists, allied and mental and public health professionals, as well as parents, caregivers, consumers and anyone with an interest in the developmentally disabled.

“Someday” is not a day of the week. If you’re declarer at a suit contract and have something important to do before you draw trumps, don’t put it off. Today’s declarer won the first spade with the queen and saw three top losers, hence he needed West to hold the king of clubs. Presumably intending to finesse in clubs “someday,” South led a trump at the second trick. Dummy’s king and jack won, as West played low.



South next led a spade to his ace, returned a club to the jack and led a third trump. West won and defended well by leading a low diamond to East’s king. West won the next diamond with the jack and led the ace. South ruffed in dummy – and was stuck there. He cashed the ace of clubs, but West got his king. Down one. Since South is short of entries to his hand, he must delay leading trumps and finesse in clubs at Trick Two. He next leads the king and jack of trumps. If West ducks, South gets to his hand with the ace of spades to repeat the club finesse.

You hold: S K 3 H K J 10 2 D 7 3 C A Q J 7 4. The dealer, at your right, opens one spade. What do you say? ANSWER: This problem is awkward. With sound values and spade shortness, to act is desirable (some would say mandatory), but no action is ideal. If you double, all will be well if partner bids hearts or clubs but maybe not if he bids diamonds. Bid two clubs. If the next player raises to two spades and two passes follow, you can reopen with a double. North dealer Both sides vulnerable


Tuesday, October 20, 2009 CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Snoop Dogg, 38; Arthel Neville, 47; Viggo Mortensen, 51; Tom Petty, 59 HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Your sophisticated intelligence will lead you down the right path and, although others may think you are giving in, you will, in fact, be getting your way. A change of location or surroundings will do you good. Getting involved with someone secretively will help you accomplish what you set out to do. Once you have everything in place, you can make your plans known. Your numbers are 3, 15, 19, 25, 32, 37, 46 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Observe what’s really going on around you. You may be the one who has the change of heart regarding a friendship or partnership. Someone is looking out for your interests, not trying to diminish the pursuit of your goals. ★★★ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You can’t stop when you are so close to reaching your goal. If you work for a cause you believe in, you will expand your professional connections. You’ll make a better impression if you can stay within a budget. ★★★ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t count on someone else to do what you are supposed to do yourself. An unexpected change will lead to uncertainty about your position in a group you belong to. Love and romance are on the rise and can lead to an entertaining evening. ★★★ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t look too far ahead when it’s what you do now that counts. Someone may try to alter your opinion or direction to suit his or her own needs. Be careful not to give in to something you don’t really want to do. ★★★ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Take on a challenge that will enable you to show off what you have to offer. A change at home may not be what you expect but it will allow you to see what needs to be done. Don’t overreact. ★★ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Take an out-of-theordinary approach and you will draw attention and suggestions that will help your cause. A work relationship with someone innovative will develop if you are open to the concepts being presented. ★★★★ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You may meet with opposition at home but, when it comes to your friends and the organizations you belong to, you will be looked up to. Perhaps you can learn from outsiders how to better deal with personal matters. ★★★ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Step up and make a decision. Waffling will make you look bad. You have to make choices if you want to achieve your goals. Action is required in order to win the confidence of others. ★★★ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You’ll be the driving force and the one who brings everyone and everything together. Your dedication and determination will be magnified. Competitive challenges will motivate you to be the best at whatever you do. ★★★ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You can make a workable arrangement if you communicate with people who have something to bring to the table. Recognize that you cannot do everything on your own. That doesn’t mean that you have to give up being the leader. ★★★★ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Follow your own path. You have some good ideas that can be turned into a profitable venture. An unexpected turn of events may stop you in your tracks but, if you keep moving, you will realize what has occurred is beneficial. ★★ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Take a much-needed break. Taking time out will allow you to put things in perspective and to realize what will work best for you. Socializing with people who inspire you will lead to innovative ideas. ★★★★★ ONE STAR: It’s best to avoid conflicts; work behind the scenes or read a good book. Two stars: You can accomplish but don’t rely on others for help. Three stars: If you focus, you will reach your goals. Four stars: You can pretty much do as you please, a good time to start new projects. Five stars: Nothing can stop you now. Go for the gold.

HIGH POINT – With three games remaining in his junior football season, Airyn Willis put an end to a recruiting race that scarcely had begun. The Southwest Guilford wide receiver and defensive back gave a verbal commitment to East Carolina on Saturday after an official visit to Greenville. The Pirates offered Willis a scholarship just two weeks ago, and while that deal no doubt was the first of many to come, Willis saw no reason to wait. “People told me, ‘If they send you DAVID HOLSTON | HPE Southwest Guilford junior an offer and you like it, why wait?’ wide receiver/defensive ” Willis explained Monday. “I loved back Airyn Willis has com- the atmosphere, the coaches were nice. It’s where I want to be.” mitted to play for ECU.

Besides, Willis reasoned: “If other schools liked me as much as they did, they would have offered me by now, too.” The 6-foot-2, 165-pound speedster averages more than a hundred yards per game rushing and receiving for Southwest this season. He’s also picked off a pair of passes, although he said he prefers offense to defense. ECU’s coaches invited Willis and about five other players with early offers for a visit Saturday. Willis toured the campus, met with his position coaches along with head coach Skip Holtz, talked with players and was on the field for the Pirates’ 49-13 romp over Rice. He was impressed with what he saw, and told assistant head coach Rick Smith at the end of the visit

that he wanted to be a Pirate. “They’re crazy about football there – they love it,” Willis said of the experience in Greenville. Among the players Willis spoke with was none other than former Cowboy Alex Taylor, now a senior at ECU. Willis recalled serving as a ballboy at Southwest when Taylor was playing both football and basketball. While Willis’ father, Duane, coached the Southwest girls basketball team for a long stint, Airyn said his dreams shifted from hoops to football in middle school. Next year, he’ll get to focus solely on playing football without the worries of a recruiting race leading up to the February 2011 signing day. | 888-3526

Hendrick teams (mostly) ride high O

n the upper end of the scale, life on the Cup circuit is about as good as it can get for car owner Rick Hendrick. Heading into Sunday’s TUMS 500 at Martinsville Speedway, Hendrick Motorsports rules the roost with drivers Jimmie Johnson, Mark Martin and Jeff Gordon sitting 1-2-3 in the Chase for the Championship. In addition, owner/driver Tony Stewart is fourth thanks to engines and technical help from the Hendrick shops. Johnson who holds a 90-point lead over Martin, won Saturday at Lowe’s Motor Speedway to give him three wins in the first five Chase races in his quest for a fourth straight championship. He is the favorite this weekend – having won five of the past six Martinsville races. Not all is sunny and warm and fuzzy, however. Hendrick is still not happy with the intense scrutiny that the Johnson and Martin cars are receiving from NASCAR. He’s not happy that cars from both teams have been taken to NASCAR’s research and development facility for additional inspection. He’s not happy that after the first of those inspections, NASCAR declared the Johnson and Martin cars were legal but also told Hendrick not to bring those cars back to the track because they were barely within some of the tolerances NASCAR allows cars to be outside of the prescribed measurements for car bodies. Johnson’s car has gone to the research and development center the past two weeks as part of the post-inspection process that winning cars now go through. “You know, I don’t like it,” Hendrick said of NASCAR’s obsession with the Johnson and Martin cars. “We were legal. We were on the edge, but we were legal. But in a way I’m kind of glad they’re doing it so that nobody is questioning is there anything there, because they strip the cars. ... But I guess in a way I’d love to see every car in the garage go through that same routine and see how far off some of these other cars might be.”

Another sore spot for Hendrick is the continuing struggles of Dale Earnhardt Jr. The struggles continued Sunday with a second straight poor SPORTS outing at Lowe’s Motor Speedway. Greer Earnhardt qualified Smith 39th, while Johnson ■■■ and Martins swept the front row, then barely cracked the top 30 before going to the garage just past the 130-lap mark to correct transmission trouble. He wound up with a 38th-place finish that was his seventh straight finish of 17th or worse and his third finish of 35th or worse in the past five races. A wreck while running in the top five at New Hampshire Motor Speedway and an engine failure after leading 41 laps a Kansas contributed to Earnhardt’s other 30-plus finishes. “I’m as frustrated as those guys (on Earnhardt’s team) are,” Hendrick said after Johnson’s victory at Lowe’s Motor Speedway. “You know, everybody over (at the Hendrick shop) is committed to helping get that car on track.” Earnhardt said last week that the inability to consistently run well had put him “at the end of my rope.” “Sometimes when you feel like you’re snake bit, it’s hard to show up and try to pretend that everything is great,” Hendrick said. “But I can tell you this ... I’m as committed as I know how to be, and we’re all committed to each other, and we’re just going to keep digging. We’ve got too many smart people over there to not fix it. “But it’s just so much pressure (on Dale’s team) running like they’re running while we’ve got the other three cars that are in the points like that. We don’t hide from it. We just know we’ve got to work harder. I think what Dale was saying was sometimes people doubt his commitment, and it’s eating him up. But we’re going to get it. I just hope it’s soon.” | 888-3519

Angels outlast Yanks, take Game 3 in 11th ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) – Jeff Mathis hit a two-out double in the 11th inning to drive home the winning run and the Los Angeles Angels survived a second straight thriller, beating the Yankees 5-4 Monday and trimming New York’s lead in the AL championship series to 2-1. In a game full of missed chances for both sides, the Angels eventually rallied to hand the Yankees their first loss of this postseason. Howie Kendrick homered, tripled and then singled with two outs in the 11th. Mathis followed with his drive up

against the left-field wall, and Kendrick slid home well ahead of a desperate throw. Mathis, the Angels’ backup catcher, came up with his third late-inning, extra-base hit of this crazy series. Vladimir Guerrero also homered as the Angels overcame a midgame 3-0 deficit and four solo homers by the Yankees’ stars, including Jorge Posada’s tying shot in the eighth. Game 4 is tonight, with CC Sabathia pitching on three days’ rest against Angels newcomer Scott Kazmir. Game 5 in the best-of-seven series is Thursday.




eorgia Tech’s 28-23 victory over Virginia Tech made me do a quick doubletake as I checked the calendar. Was the year 2009 or 1909? The Yellow Jackets grounded the Hokies with 309 rushing yards on 63 carries. Quarterback Josh Nesbitt masterfully directed the powerful Georgia Tech option attack, running for 122 yards and three touchdowns on 23 carries. The Jackets definitely played it close to the vest, completing just one pass for 51 yards.

The Rambling Wreck’s “air show” featured 1-of-7 passing with one interception. But that suited Paul Johnson’s crew just fine. At 6-1 overall and 4-1 in the Coastal Division, the Yellow Jackets appear in prime position to secure a spot in the ACC title game. The Hokies fell to 5-2, 3-1. Interestingly, Virginia leads the Coastal at 3-3, 2-0. Ga. Tech’s reliance on the ground game got me thinking. When did the forward pass become legal in college football? A little research revealed the answer. The

forward pass was legalized prior to the start of the 1906 season. To borrow a phrase from the late, great Johnny Carson, I did not know that. I love the fast pace and uncertain nature of good option football. The wishbone, the veer, the Notre Dame box, now that’s college football. Keep up the good work, Yellow Jackets. You’re making history come alive.





Bingo! You’re not calling plays anymore, Jim Zorn. Sherm Lewis is coming out of retirement to do it for you. With a pained expression, Washington Redskins coach Zorn announced Monday that the front office “strongly suggested” that he yield his playcalling duties to a consultant hired only two weeks ago. While he didn’t say he was given an ultimatum, Zorn said he would comply with the request “because I want to stay here and win.” “Sometimes we have to do things that are uncomfortable,” Zorn said. Zorn received the news in a meeting with front office chief Vinny Cerrato at the stadium following Sunday’s 14-6 loss to the previously winless Kansas City Chiefs. The Redskins (2-4) are averaging 13.2 points and have failed to score a touchdown in two of their home games. “The reason I can comply with this is simply because of the lack of scoring,” Zorn said. “I want to win, too. If this has to be done this week, if this is going to be the key, I’m certainly willing to give it a try. Because we’re 2-4 and to not score in the last few weeks, the way we have not scored, is very frustrating.” Barely a fortnight ago, Lewis was enjoying retirement in Michigan.

Jenkins, Williams, Odom out for season Three key defensive players were lost for the season during Sunday’s NFL games: Jets nose tackle Kris Jenkins, Falcons cornerback Brian Williams and Bengals end Antwan Odom. Jenkins was placed on injured reserve Monday with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee against Buffalo. Jenkins will need reconstructive surgery, as will Williams, who sustained the same injury when the Falcons beat Chicago. The third veteran defender sidelined was Odom, who entered the weekend tied for the league lead with eight sacks. Odom had surgery for a torn Achilles’ tendon on Monday.

sion beyond that is yet to come. Stoops said after the Sooners’ practice Monday “the path hasn’t been determined yet” for Bradford’s treatment. Bradford re-injured his right shoulder on Oklahoma’s second possession during a 1613 loss to No. 3 Texas on Saturday. He had previously been out a month with a sprain of the AC joint in his right, throwing shoulder. Stoops also says that starting left guard Brian Simmons will be “out for several weeks” with a right knee injury that forced him to miss the Texas game and it’s uncertain if he’ll return this season.

Randleman at T.W. Andrews GREENVILLE (AP) – East Carolina isn’t sure whether running back Dominique Lindsay will be ready for next week’s trip to Memphis. The Pirates (4-3, 3-1 Conference USA) are coming off a 49-13 win against winless Rice, but lost Lindsay to a left ankle injury. The senior had gotten off to a fast start, rushing for 78 yards on 12 carries before he was hurt on a pass play early in the second quarter. Coach Skip Holtz said Monday that Lindsay’s ankle is swollen and that he’ll likely be questionable for the Memphis game, scheduled for next Tuesday. Holtz said Lindsay would get treatment on the ankle and then see where he stood by Wednesday’s practices.

“He’s walking around on it, but I don’t know how long it’s going to be at this point,” Holtz said. “It might be three or four days, or two weeks. We’re just going to have to wait and see.” Lindsay, who has been listed as a starter along with Brandon Jackson, has run for a team-high 431 yards to go with three touchdowns. Losing Lindsay would be a damaging blow for the Pirates, who haven’t been able to move the ball through the air as effectively as everyone expected when quarterback Patrick Pinkney returned for a sixth year. In addition, Jackson struggled to shoulder the rushing load after Lindsay’s injury and was repeatedly stuffed for negative yardage. Giavanni Ruffin

– who is listed alongside Lindsay on the depth chart for the Memphis game – came on to run for a touchdown that helped the Pirates blow the game open, and would figure to take at least a portion of Lindsay’s carries if he’s out. The injury further depletes the Pirates’ backfield, which is already without Jon Williams (knee injury) indefinitely. “It’s a shame because (Lindsay’s) playing with a lot of confidence,” Holtz said. “When you look at him and the other running backs, there’s a huge difference in yards per carry. We’re calling the same plays, running behind the same people and going against the same defenses. He’s just really doing a great job for us right now.”

Tar Heels hope off week leads to gains CHAPEL HILL (AP) – The off week came at the right time for North Carolina and its struggling offense. It allowed the Tar Heels to put the struggles of the first six games behind them and examine more closely what they’ve been doing wrong. It also gave them time to focus on Florida State in advance of Thursday night’s nationally televised matchup, which will be the first in Kenan Stadium history. Coach Butch Davis has described it as self-scouting, though to listen to him there weren’t too many surprises at the end of the review period. “All the things that hurt you as a football team, those are pretty self-evident,” Davis said Monday. “If you turn the ball over, you really hurt your offense’s opportunity to find out what might work. If you’re going threeand-out and turning the ball over and not having success, you don’t have a chance to go out there and experiment and find a play that works and get the chance to call it again.”

That certainly has hindered the development of North Carolina’s young offense this season. Injuries have as well, though the off week following a 42-12 win against Georgia Southern has given the Tar Heels (4-2, 0-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) a chance to heal a bit. Tight end Zack Pianalto returned to practice last week and might return against the Seminoles (2-4, 0-3) for the first time since suffering a dislocated foot while celebrating a touchdown in the second game. For guys like offensive lineman Jonathan Cooper, who missed almost four full games with a sprained right ankle, it allowed him to get to about “90 percent” while playing with a brace – which can only help a line that is still playing without injured center Lowell Dyer. That’s not to say all the injury news was good Monday. The school said freshmen A.J. Blue and Jamal Womble would miss the rest of the season after having surgery to repair injuries

suffered against Georgia Southern. Blue, a tailback/quarterback, needed reconstructive surgery on the anterior cruciate and posterior cruciate ligaments in his left knee. The surgery also repaired the medial collateral ligament in the knee. Blue, who had played in “Wildcat” formations and had 18 carries for 33 yards this year, will miss spring practice in 2010. Womble, a tailback who had six carries for 41 yards, needed surgery on a fractured right wrist, though he is expected back in time for spring drills. The pressure will be heaviest on North Carolina’s offense to get better after regressing for two ACC games in which it scored just one touchdown. That’s particularly true of the rushing attack, which has generated just 56 yards in those losses to Georgia Tech and Virginia. Quarterback T.J. Yates said the offense is was eager to return to the field and show that it really has made progress.

BC’s Harris named ACC offensive back of the week GREENSBORO (AP) – Boston College running back Montel Harris was named Atlantic Coast Conference offensive back of the week after setting the school’s rushing record against North Carolina State. Harris finished with 264 yards and five touchdowns against the Wolfpack. Georgia Tech center Sean Bedford was named offensive lineman of the week. Virginia defensive end Nate Collins was named the league’s top defensive lineman. Clemson safety DeAndre Michael was named the week’s top defensive back, while Miami kicker/punter Matt Bosher was named specialist of the week. Virginia Tech’s Ryan Williams was named rookie of the week after tallying his fifth 100-yard rushing game.

Carolinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wesley suspended one game by NFL for hit CHARLOTTE (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The NFL has suspended Carolina Panthers defensive back Dante Wesley one game without pay for launching himself into defenseless Tampa Bay punt returner Clifton Smith. Wesley left his feet and hit Smith in the neck and head with his forearm and shoulder as Smith waited to field a punt Sunday. Smith

sustained a concussion and both benches emptied onto the field. Wesley was immediately ejected. Smith had not signaled for a fair catch and Wesley said he mistimed hitting him. Wesley is Carolinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gunner on special teams and will sit out Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game vs. Buffalo. The Panthers also have added depth at defensive tackle, sending

an undisclosed draft pick to the Kansas City Chiefs for Tank Tyler. The deal late Monday, a day before the NFLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trading deadline, gives the Panthers more options on the defensive line after the seasonending injury to Maake Kemoeatu in training camp. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a homecoming for the 6-foot-2, 306-pound Tyler, who grew up in Fayetteville.

* — Annualized

NEW YORK (AP) – Investors are seeing the kind of earnings numbers that make them feel confident about stocks. The market stepped to new highs for the year Monday after a handful of earnings reports bolstered hopes that the economy is coming back sooner than many analysts had thought. That is helping some investors move past a bout of nerves about whether expectations for the economy are stretched too far. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 96 points, while the Standard & Poor’s 500 index advanced but ended just shy of 1,100, having topped that level during the day. Industrial equipment maker Eaton Corp. said it was seeing improvement in key markets and raised its full-year profit forecast. Newspaper publisher Gannett Co. managed to post a profit despite a sharp fall in revenue.

The day’s gains came ahead of quarterly earnings released after the closing bell from Apple Inc. and Texas Instruments Inc. Both wound up beating forecasts. Apple blew past expectations because of increased sales of the iPhone, while Texas Instruments’ profit and sales came in above the improved forecast the chip maker issued just last month. Share of both tech companies gained in after-hours electronic trading. The Dow rose 96.28, or 1 percent, to 10,092.19. The broader S&P 500 index rose 10.23, or 0.9 percent, to 1,097.91. For both indexes, it was the highest close since Oct. 3 last year. The Nasdaq composite index rose 19.52, or 0.9 percent, to 2,176.32, its highest close since Sept. 26, 2008. Bond prices rose. The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note fell to 3.39 percent from 3.42 percent late Friday.

previous year’s deficit was $459 billion. The Fed chief’s comments were aimed at reducing global imbalances, and echo pledges made by leaders of the Group of 20 nations at their summit last month in Pittsburgh. “As the global economy recovers and trade volumes rebound, however, global imbalances my reassert themselves,” Bernanke warned. For the United States’ part, “the most effective way” to boost national savings in this country “is by establishing a sustainable fiscal trajectory, anchored by a clear commitment to substantially reduce federal deficits over time,”

Bernanke said. He didn’t suggest ways to do so. Fielding questions after his speech, Bernanke said the United States is in a “difficult fiscal situation” and that Congress and the White House will need to develop an “exit strategy.” That’s important to maintain confidence in the U.S. economy and the dollar, Bernanke said. The Fed chief said he believes those stakes are “very well understood in Washington.” Red ink from the budget deficit reflects costs of spending on wars in Iraq and Afghanstan and on fighting the financial crisis at home.

WASHINGTON (AP) – Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke on Monday called for the United States to whittle down its recordhigh budget deficits and for countries like China to get their consumers to spend more, moves that would help combat skewed global trade and investment flows that contributed to the financial crisis. Bernanke’s remarks to a Fed conference in Santa Barbara, Calif., comes just days after the federal government on Friday reported a $1.42 trillion deficit for 2009 budget year that ended Sept. 30.

President Barack Obama talks to students at Viers Mill Elementary School in Silver Spring, Md., Monday.

Obama spends time with Maryland students SILVER SPRING, Md. (AP) – President Barack Obama visited a Maryland school Monday to congratulate the students and teachers on their hard work. Obama stopped by Viers Mill Elementary School outside Washington, where he met with third- and fourth-grade students during their lunch period. The school receives federal poverty aid and has been

celebrated for closing the achievement gap between minority children and other students. The president made his way through the cafeteria, shaking hands with students and asking them what they were reading. Obama said he came to Viers Mill because it is “a great example of how much improvement a school can make.”

The president also told the kids one of his favorite books growing up was “Where the Wild Things Are.” That book has been turned into a new movie, and Obama told the school kids that he watched it with his family over the weekend. Obama spent about 20 minutes with the students before heading back to the White House.

Experts: Higher jobless rates could be new norm WASHINGTON (AP) – Even with an economic revival, many U.S. jobs lost during the recession may be gone forever and a weak employment market could linger for years. That could add up to a “new normal” of higher joblessness and lower standards of living for many Americans, some economists are suggesting. The words “it’s different this time” are always suspect. But economists and policy makers say the job-creating dynamics of previous recoveries can’t be counted on now. Here’s why:

• The auto and construction industries helped lead the nation out of past recessions. But the carnage among Detroit’s automakers and the surplus of new and foreclosed homes and empty commercial properties make it unlikely these two industries will be engines of growth anytime soon. • The job market is caught in a vicious circle: Without more jobs, U.S. consumers will have a hard time increasing their spending; but without that spending, businesses might see little reason to start hiring. • Many small and midsize busi-

nesses are still struggling to obtain bank loans, impeding their expansion plans and constraining overall economic growth. • Higher-income households are spending less because of big losses on their homes, retirement plans and other investments. Lower-income households are cutting back because they can’t borrow like they once did. That the recovery in jobs will be long and drawn out is something on which economists and policy makers can basically agree, even as their proposals for remedies vary widely.

WASHINGTON (AP) – The number of Americans worried about losing their current health care coverage keeps rising, even as President Barack Obama and a Democrat-led Congress strive to extend society’s safety net to cover the uninsured, a new poll has found. The growing levels of insurance insecurity are reflected in the latest monthly snapshot from the nonpartisan Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Americans have conflicting views on whether a health care overhaul will help matters, make them worse or leave things about the same. The foundation’s September poll found that about one-third of Americans said they were worried about losing current coverage, a slight increase from 29 percent who reported such concerns the previous month. Indeed, the share of Americans who say they’re worried about losing coverage in the next 12 months has gone up by 11 percentage points since the health care debate began in the spring. “Despite rising faith in the strength of our economy, people still feel financially pinched and increasingly concerned that they could lose their health care coverage and access to care,” said foundation president Risa LavizzoMourey.
