Opposition forms against election referendum BY DARRICK IGNASIAK ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

THOMASVILLE – Less than two weeks from Thomasville’s municipal election, several Chair City groups are looking to rally support in opposition to a referendum that would change the city’s election system. If approved by the voters, the referendum would allow the terms of office for all members of the council to be four years for each of the seven seats. The new terms would be phased in, with the top four vote-getters in the 2011 elec-

tion receiving four-year terms and the next three receiving twoyear terms. While electing all seven City Council seats, voters also will have the option of giving the mayor a four-year term. This week, the Martin Luther King Social Action Committee, the Thomasville chapter of the NAACP and Ministers United for Christ in Thomasville decided to ask the North Carolina NAACP’s legal counsel to “give a vote of confidence” on whether the group should pursue a lawsuit if the referendum passes, said George Jackson, chairman of the MLK-

SAC and pastor of Citadel of Faith Christian Fellowship. The possible lawsuit would allege the staggered terms would discriminate against minorities. “We are saying that the most advantageous way for minority candidates to be elected is through the community at-large system with four-year terms, no staggered elections and everybody runs at the same time,” Jackson said of the groups’ opposition to the referendum. Apostle James Carter, pastor of Cornerstone Church of Christ and vice president of Thomasville


chapter of NAACP, also has called on Chair City pastors to tell their congregations to vote against the referendum. “Right now, Thomasville has some serious issues – the sewage problem at High Rock (Lake), education problems, tax problems,” Carter said. “We just go on and on and on ... We need a working force, but we don’t need folks sitting in office for four years. The first two years you haven’t done anything and then we have to deal with you for two years.” 888-3657

Gunman prays with clerk before finishing robbery

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – Police say an armed robber spent nearly 10 minutes on his knees praying with a clerk at an Indianapolis checkcashing business before fleeing with $20 from the register. Security video from the Advance America branch

clearly showed the man’s face during the stickup Monday, and a 23-year-old surrendered Tuesday on a preliminary charge of robbery. Police say the robbery took an unusual turn after the gunman came around the counter when the clerk starting crying

and talking about God. The man said he had a 2year-old child to support and asked for prayers about overcoming his hardships. Police say the man removed the bullet from his gun and gave it to the clerk before taking her cell phone and the money.

The height of the mini-helicopter-in-ashowspace featured in a story Tuesday should have read “perhaps 7.5-feet high” rather than 5-feet high. The Enterprise regrets the error.

Traffic stop leads to drug charges BY PAT KIMBROUGH ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER


In this picture provided by the N.C. Department of Cultural Resources, archaeological supervisor Chris Southerly steadies an anchor as it is offloaded from the recovery vessel at US Coast Guard Station Fort Macon near Beaufort Wednesday. The anchor is from a shipwreck thought to be Blackbeard’s flagship, the Queen Anne’s Revenge. It was so unstable that divers in North Carolina retrieved it rather than waiting until next year.

Divers recover anchor from reputed Blackbeard ship Mark Ramsing Queen Anne’s Revenge project director has 1 1/2. Two divers put straps on the anchor, then small lift bags that they filled with air, said Mark Wilde-Ramsing, the director of the Queen Anne’s Revenge shipwreck project. When the

grapnel reached the surface, a crane brought it on the boat. “It went great,� he said. “It went as smooth as it could be.� The grapnel probably was an anchor for a smaller boat that would have been used to transport items between ships or from land to ship, Wilde-Ramsing said. Archaeologists and conservators with the state Department of Cultural Resources say the grapnel was at risk of washing away after nearly 300 years in the sea and might not weather pos-

sible storms until next year, when a full-scale expedition is planned. The rest of the shipwreck looks very stable, Wilde-Ramsing said. Queen Anne’s Revenge was a French slave ship that measured about 100 feet long with three masts and a crew of 150 to 200. Blackbeard captured the ship, then known as La Concorde, in 1717 and renamed it before it ran aground off Atlantic Beach a year later. The shipwreck, discovered in late 1996, is within sight of Fort Macon State Park.

DAVIDSON COUNTY – A High Point woman who was the bookkeeper for C&W Cores in Thomasville has been charged with two counts embezzlement greater than $100,000. According to a Davidson County Sheriff’s Office press release, John Belton, the owner of C&W

Cores, reported to the sheriff’s office in January that his company had discovered discrepancies in its financial records. For its investigation, the sheriff’s office reviewed all of the financial records. Melissa Anne Rivas-Domina, 41, of Cottesmore Drive, was charged with two counts of embez-

zling more than $100,000 for allegedly embezzling $207,674.28 between Feb. 8, 2008, and Aug. 4, 2008. Tuesday, detectives arrested Rivas-Domina at the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office. She was placed in the Davidson County Jail under a $1,000 secured bond. Her first court date is Oct. 22.

BEAUFORT (AP) – An anchor from a shipwreck thought to be Blackbeard’s flagship, the Queen Anne’s Revenge, was so unstable that divers in North Carolina retrieved it Wednesday rather than waiting until next year. Divers raised the 4.5foot, 160-pound grapnel, or anchor, from the wreck in the Atlantic Ocean near Beaufort on Wednesday and will display it Thursday at the North Carolina Maritime Museum in Beaufort. The anchor originally had four prongs, but now

DAVIDSON COUNTY – A traffic stop by Davidson County sheriff’s officials led to the seizure of several types of prescription narcotics and drug charges against the driver. Vice and Narcotics detectives on Tuesday stopped a car on Interstate 85 South at Lake Road after they suspected it of following other vehicles too closely and failing to signal a lane change, according to the sheriff’s office. Detectives seized 119 Methadone tablets, 19 Xanax tablets, 16 Adderall tablets, two OxyContin tablets and two Hydrocodone tablets. The driver, Mary Ann Foster, 26, of Nance Road, Denton, was charged with three counts of trafficking opium (methadone), four counts of possession with intent to manufacture, sell and deliver a controlled substance, one count of maintaining a vehicle for a controlled substance and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia,

according to the sheriff’s office. Foster was jailed under a $20,000 bond. In an unrelated case, deputies took a suspected fugitive into custody after responding to a suspicious-activity call on Tuesday. Deputies responded to the site of the Old Brian Center on U.S. 29/70 to check on a report of a man walking away from the closed facility pulling a wooden door on a hand truck. When asked what he was doing, the man said he was going to sell the door and that he needed the money because he was homeless. The door had been removed from the interior of the building, whose owner declined prosecution. When a deputy checked the man’s name and date of birth, he was found to be wanted by authorities in York, Pa., for felony assault. Nakoma Cheyenne Richardson, 26, was taken into custody and held in the Davidson County Jail under a $150,000 bond, according to the sheriff’s office.

Iraqi lawmakers deadlocked over election BAGHDAD – Iraqi lawmakers failed to agree on key changes to the election law on Wednesday, throwing January’s crucial parliamentary vote into jeopardy and potentially slowing down U.S. withdrawal from the country. For weeks, lawmakers have been entangled in a bitter dispute over a new election law that would set out the legal structure for the critical balloting set for Jan. 16. The most contested issue is over the oil-rich city of Kirkuk and how to settle power-sharing disputes there between Arabs and Kurds.

Embassy occupants call Army tunes torture TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras – Ousted President Manuel Zelaya, who is holed up with a group of 30 supporters at the Brazilian Embassy in Honduras, complained Wednesday about loud music blasted by soldiers posted around the diplomatic compound. Soldiers “are using powerful sound systems that can be heard from 20 blocks away. ... We can’t fall asleep,” Zelaya told a news conference. Army chief of staff Gen. Romeo Vazquez denied claims of harassment, saying the all-night broadcast was a “serenade” intended to celebrate the country’s Armed Forces day holiday.

Rio police expand anti-gang raids; 32 dead RIO DE JANEIRO – Police in Rio expanded a crackdown on gangs beyond the area hit by a wave of killings that has claimed at least 32 lives since the weekend, officials said Wednesday. The clashes came less than three weeks after the city was awarded the 2016 Olympic Games. They began when a drug gang tried to invade a rival’s territory and three policemen were killed when a helicopter was shot down by gunfire over the weekend. Subsequent firefights between police and heavily armed gang members have left the affected slums in chaos.

People play in the spray of waves hitting the sea wall as Tropical Storm Rick hits Mazatlan, Mexico, Wednesday.

Tropical storm hits Mexican resort, down trees MAZATLAN, Mexico – Tropical Storm Rick hit Mexico’s Pacific coast just north of the resort of Mazatlan on Wednesday, toppling trees and signs, after sparing Los Cabos on the Baja California peninsula a direct blow. The center of the storm made landfall around 10 a.m. EDT (1400 GMT) with winds of about 55 mph (90 kph), kicking up high waves that drew residents of Mazatlan to the city’s seaside boulevard to watch the spectacle. After moving over land, the storm dissipated by the afternoon, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said.

Delays granted in 2 Gitmo war crimes cases SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico – Military judges at Guantanamo Bay granted requests for further continuances in two war crimes cases Wednesday as the Obama administration evaluates how to proceed with the prosecution of detainees. The prosecutors’ requests were approved following separate hearings at the U.S. Navy base in southeast Cuba for two Sudanese detainees accused of aiding al-Qaida, according to Joseph DellaVedova, a spokesman for the Pentagon’s Office of Military Commissions. The rulings mean that six pending Guantanamo cases have been delayed until Nov. 16.

WASHINGTON (AP) – The United States built pressure on Afghan President Hamid Karzai on Wednesday, signaling that a troop increase could hinge on a successful runoff election and that the Obama administration would be receptive to a power-sharing deal between Karzai and his chief rival. A coalition government or other political arrangement that included Karzai’s rival, former Foreign Minister Abdullah Abdullah, could provide a critical internal check on Karzai, who is widely favored to win the presidential runoff set for Nov. 7. President Barack Obama and Sen. John Kerry, who pressed the administration’s interests in weekend talks with Karzai in Kabul, both hinted Wednesday that pending deliberations on possible U.S. troop increases in Afghanistan could be affected by the Afghan leader’s behavior.

from the building shortly after the man charged in and quickly brought in tactical officers and negotiators. Don Bellerose, a neighbor in the assisted-living facility where the hostage taker apparently lived, said the man sent a text message to one of the nurses at the facility saying he was going to settle a score with the Workers’ Compensation Board on Wednesday morning.

Iran envoy backs uranium deal VIENNA (AP) – A top Iranian negotiator praised a plan Wednesday that would ship most of his country’s uranium abroad for enrichment and limit its ability to build a nuclear weapon. There was no guarantee, however, that Tehran’s leaders would accept the idea. In seven years of backand-forth diplomatic wrangling, Iran has appeared to accept previous proposals meant to ease fears it might be seeking

weapons capability – only to later reject those same proposals. The West says that has given the country time to build its civilian nuclear program and its capacity to generate fissile warhead material. At the end of three days of talks, International Atomic Energy Agency chief Mohamed ElBaradei said representatives of Iran and its three interlocutors – the U.S., Russia and France – had accepted his draft agree-

ment for forwarding to their capitals. ElBaradei said he hoped for approval from all four countries by Friday, adding: “I cross my fingers.” Iran’s refusal to curb its enrichment program has led to three sets of U.N. Security Council sanctions, and it was unclear whether the leaders of the Islamic Republic were ready to deal away their strategic leverage and compromise on their quest for nuclear independence.

Missile strike could complicate Pakistan battle PARACHINAR, Pakistan – Soldiers fought for the Pakistani Taliban chief’s hometown Wednesday as they pressed an offensive along the Afghan border, while intelligence officials said U.S. missiles hit territory controlled by another insurgent, threatening to undermine deals that keep some militants out of the battle. The five-day-old offensive in South Waziristan is considered a critical test of nuclear-armed Pakistan’s campaign against Islamist extremists blamed for soaring attacks at home and on Western forces in neighboring Afghanistan.

Obama refocuses bailout on small businesses

LANDOVER, Md. (AP) – President Barack Obama unveiled plans Wednesday to refocus spending of the government’s $700 billion financial bailout away from Wall Street’s big financial institutions and toward small businesses on Main Street. Speaking in a small business near Washington, Obama said

the initiatives would make it easier for smaller community banks to provide credit to small businesses, which have been hard-hit by the financial crisis. The president’s plan also includes a request that Congress increase caps for existing Small Business Administration loans.

“Over the past decade and a half, America’s small businesses have created 65 percent of all new jobs in the country,� Obama told about 150 employees in a warehouse at a storage business’s warehouse on the eastern outskirts of Washington. “These companies are the engine of job growth in America,�

he said. “They fuel our prosperity. And that’s why they have to be at the forefront of our recovery.� The shift in focus comes amid outrage over record payouts to financial executives, some of whom work at firms that needed Washington to bail them out with billions of taxpayer dollars last year. Obama officials

called the bonuses “offensive� and instead sought to convince the country that Obama’s administration was interested in everyday Americans’ struggles, not just the problems of those on Wall Street. On Wednesday, Obama pitched his plan as a way to create jobs and change day-to-day life.

A different approach would attract business

Incentives anyone? The Dell situation should awaken citizens to the fact that the incentives game is like a lottery. Most people lose. The game is played with a four-step process: 1. A huge national or international company approaches area politicians with a proposition. “Give me a bribe. I’m for sale.” 2. Politicians take money from taxpaying companies and give it to new companies so that they can compete (unfairly) with locals for employees and resources. 3. The new companies, with zero local ties or loyalty, stay as long as it is best for their bottom line or until an incentives package elsewhere is more attractive. 4. The community is left with a white-elephant building and unemployed citizens. Here’s a much better plan: 1. Offer all new start-ups a twoyear moratorium on all taxes. 2. Give tax credits after the first two years equal to the past year’s increase in employees. 3. Stand aside while new companies start up and companies from everywhere flock to the state where incentives never go away. North Carolina would be the most attractive state in the union for businesses of all kinds and sizes. Large companies would come to a state that always rewards expansion, small companies would create new jobs and compete on a fair basis while the state tax coffers reap the benefits of an expanding economy. Simple? Yes. Possible? Yes. The politician with a plan like this would be the hero of our state for years to come! CHARLES E. BAKER Trinity

City managers across state



push annexation ideas

Who shares the blame in Thomasville spill? Why was Dean Lambeth forced to quit his job over the wastewater spill in Thomasville? There seems to be some misconception that Lambeth was the superintendent of the waste treatment plant. He was the superintendent of construction. He did not work in that plant and would have had no firsthand knowledge of the decrease in gallons coming in the plant on a daily basis. The waste treatment plant has a superintendent, Misty Conder, who should have been aware of the spill from the first day. I find it strange that no one has mentioned her role in this matter. Certainly as superintendent, she should have been aware of the decreased flow and reported it immediately. I am at a loss to understand why an outside firm was hired “... to study treatment plant records and

Market mood shows W positive signs

ou never have too many customers, one market exhibitor said, but a review on Wednesday of this fall’s High Point Market produced a positive assessment of business activity for his company. And similar comments by several other exhibitors seem to paint a picture of an improving industry outlook based on buyers’ purchases and their upbeat mood. Our random inquiries about market are neither exhaustive nor scientific, of course, but they are enough to indicate to us that apparently for many exhibitors, business was better. And this is especially so compared to last April’s market, even for those with so-so markets this fall. For example, one seller from Florida said few of the retailers from his state that normally show up at market were here because of the shape of the Florida economy. Even so, the seller said this week’s market was better than last spring. Another exhibitor said buyers seemed to be in more of an upbeat mood, and he was pleased with the number of sales and contacts he had made. Another exhibitor noted that he had seen an increase in “mom and pop” customers, and another seller said he’d seen an increase in the number of buyers for large retailers, compared to the last couple of markets. And in another indicator of market activity, at The Parson’s Table, operated by United Methodist Women at First United Methodist Church, meals served in the dining room at the church totaled in the 300 range each day this market. That was up from April numbers, but still down from a few years ago. Also on Wednesday, Market Authority President Brian Casey said attendance by international buyers was up this market, especially among those from Canada. However, overall attendance numbers won’t be available until next week, he said. We look forward to seeing whether those numbers are as positive as were the experiences of many of the people here that those statistics represent.

city data to investigate the cause of the spill, the amount leaked and how long the spill lasted.” Since there is a plant superintendent and a public services director (who was the previous plant superintendent), I believe they should have been able to examine the records themselves and find the answers. By hiring an outside firm, they are just wasting taxpayer dollars once again. Certainly, the city manager and personnel director should be able to determine who has done their job correctly. Conder has not been mentioned in a single article I have read, and I find that odd since she is responsible for the plant. That then raises the question of whether the city manager and personnel director are doing their job correctly. Is there a cover up? When the superintendent of the plant is never mentioned, it sure seems that way. MARY B. ELLIOTT Thomasville

I have reached a conclusion that every town, city and county of North Carolina is affected by the managers the elected officials hire. The cities have their League of Municipalities and the counties have their NCACC, which are organizations that receive salaries from us taxpayers. The hired hands of these organizations that are supposed to help the public, use registered lobby rights, to our detriment. In my studies of annexations forced on outsiders, almost always it is the hired manager that brings annexation to the council tables. It is time for county lobbies to speak in North Carolina and balance out the power of the cities, the tail. Laws are made by the lobbies whether of merit or not. We need to ask county commissioners to stand up to their managers and cities and let the legislators know that forcing government on outsiders is not what a civilized state or country does.

e are gathered here today in sympathy with our brother, Rush Limbaugh. As you are no doubt aware, these have been difficult days for Brother Limbaugh. There he was, happily revealing that he was part of an investment group that had submitted a bid to purchase the St. Louis Rams of the National Football League. Next thing you know, Al Sharpton is on him like ugly on King Kong, urging the NFL to reject him. And NFL players, not previously known for commenting on or even visibly caring, who owns a team so long as the paychecks clear, are saying they would not play for him. And owners, who must vote to approve him, are telling reporters they will not. It all came to a head last week as the talk show host was dumped by his fellow investors. Whose heart is so stony that it does not weep for Brother Limbaugh to find himself humiliated so? Put yourself in his shoes. You’re a college dropout and OxyContin junkie who somehow managed to climb to the top of the media pile. You’ve made yourself one of the most popular and influential voices in the national dialogue and that, in turn, has made you rich beyond dreams of avarice. How satisfying must that be. And you’re an avid sports fan, too, so naturally you jump at a chance to fulfill every sports fan’s dream – to buy yourself a team. You picture yourself watching games from the luxury box with a babe or two on your arm, evaluating talent and signing off on trades, partying in the locker room, champagne stinging your eyes, at the end of a championship game. How cruel to have it all snatched away from you. And why? Because a bunch of black African-American Negroes start making noise? What reason do they have to be upset with you? Just because you once called Philadelphia Eagles star Donovan McNabb overrated, the victim of media too eager to see a black quarterback do well? Just because you referred to Barack Obama and Halle Berry as “Halfrican Americans?” Just because you told your listeners Obama’s economic program is “repara-

tions?” Just because you called Obama “the little black man-child?” Just because you said the NFL “all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips?” Just because you once OPINION told a black caller to “take that bone out of your nose Leonard and call me back?” Pitts For those “trifles” the ■■■ sensitive pansies of the NFL don’t want to have anything to do with you? Why do they even care? Just because 65 percent of their players are black African-American Negroes? Oh, the shame! Oh, the humanity! So yes, the rest of us should rally around Brother Limbaugh. If they can deny one rich, racially inflammatory media lout his constitutional right to own a football team, what’s to stop them from denying another? This is a clear and present danger. Pat Buchanan, Glenn Beck ... none of us is safe while this injustice stands. And besides, what lesson does this teach our children? That there are things (like respectability) even money can’t buy? That there are doors (like the one to the owner’s box) even fame can’t open? That you only have one reputation and it’s not stainresistant, so you’d better not soil it? That karma is a female dog? Do you really want your children to learn that sort of socialist claptrap? I don’t. How dare the high and mighty NFL act like the things we say carry consequences? So let’s stand up for Brother Limbaugh. Indeed, here and now, I am starting a legal fund to help him carry on the fight. I will make the first contribution – a shiny new Franklin Roosevelt dime. What about you? Wouldn’t you like to see poor Rush get what he deserves? Please give generously.

Children who learn differently benefit from special efforts




he price of gold recently has spurted to an all-time high in terms of U.S. dollars. I’m neither an expert nor a market timer, but let me offer a few perspectives on this event. To most people, including gold bugs, gold is an inflation hedge, preserving purchasing power at a time of currency depreciation. Today, unlike the gold bull market in the 1970s, gold is rising while consumer and producer prices are falling. Nevertheless, many economically knowledgeable market participants are getting out of dodge – that is, they are reducing their holdings of dollars now – some to avoid potential losses from future dollar depreciation and some for other reasons. The market price of things reflects how much people value them. For people to value a currency highly, they must have confidence both in the integrity of the currency and, in the case of a fiat currency, the political and financial viability of the government issuing the currency. Confidence in the buck is currently low because Washington’s fiscal policy is profligate and out of control, and because Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke has stated that the Fed will create as many dollars as deemed necessary to prevent a depression. (For the record, there is no guarantee that monetary policy, inflationary or otherwise, can prevent a depression. It is possible to have a hyperinflationary depression.) Market prices decline when sellers outweigh buyers. The dollar currently has lots of sellers. China, for example, is hedging its exposure to dollars by exchanging paper assets for hard assets, buying massive quantities of raw materials around the globe, while also encouraging its own citizens to diversify into gold and silver. There are recurring rumors that some Arab Gulf states, China, Russia, France and maybe even Japan would like to replace the buck with a basket of currencies and gold for oil transactions. The Federal Reserve Note may become “the old maid” of the global currency markets. Another important, but generally underappreciated, factor affecting the price of gold is geopolitics. $800 per ounce gold in January 1980 was, among other things, an emphatic no-confidence vote for the United States as a world power. Under Jimmy Carter, the United States appeared impotent and incompetent on the world stage. Soviet tanks rolled into Afghanistan, Iran held over 50 Americans hostage for 444 days, and everyone remembered how Carter had kissed Leonid Brezhnev. The dollar tanked and gold soared. When Ronald Reagan reasserted America’s resolve and effectively stood up to Soviet expansionism, the dollar entered a prolonged bull market and gold a prolonged bear market. Today, President Obama seems paralyzed in Afghanistan, clueless about Iran, makes unilateral concessions to the likes of Vladimir Putin and Hugo Chavez, and gold is at

record highs despite overall price deflation. Nobody wants to hold the currency of a declining power; hence, until our president starts projecting strength, the dollar is likely to remain under pressure. Many foreigners love to gripe about American power, but when push comes to shove, they generally prefer the relative stability provided by a strong United States and a strong dollar. Another major factor affecting the golddollar exchange market today is “the carry trade.” This is a currency-trading technique whereby speculators (everyone from financial institutions to hedge funds to individual investors) borrow money at low interest rates in one currency, then sell that currency to buy another currency where they can earn higher interest rates, thereby profiting from interest rate spreads. In recent years, the Japanese yen had the lowest interest rates, and therefore was sold to finance the carry trade. Incidentally, this policy was designed to prop up politically connected too-big-to-fail bankrupt banks, resulting in years of economic stagnation in Japan. Uncle Sam and the Fed have adopted a similar program today. The Federal Reserve is keeping interest rates near zero, so currency traders are selling dollars (accentuat-

Confidence in the buck is currently low because Washington’s fiscal policy is profligate and out of control. ing the already bearish trend in the buck) to buy other currencies in the search for yield. Since the Fed has insisted that it will hold interest rates at these amazingly low levels at least through 2011, many currency traders are selling dollars to buy euros, yuan, the Brazilian real, Canadian, Australian and New Zealand dollars, etc. (Note to amateur speculators: The carry trade isn’t as risk-free as it seems. If there is a financial panic similar to last fall’s, panic buying of the dollar might crush those who are “short” the buck.) Incidentally, since one of the traditional arguments against buying gold is the fact that it pays no interest, today’s super-low interest rates on dollar-denominated savings practically eliminate the opportunity costs of converting dollars to gold, further incentivizing a shift from dollars to gold. This economist doesn’t know the future, and this article isn’t giving investment advice. Gold prices may continue to soar or they may get caught in a deflationary downdraft. I will, however, make one categorical assertion: Gold is warning us that our country is on the wrong track. MARK W. HENDRICKSON, Ph.D., is an adjunct faculty member, economist and contributing scholar with The Center for Vision & Values at Grove City (Pa.) College.

abled peer may remember that same word after just 20 or 30 times. And telling a child to “try harder” or that “you can do better” does not LESSONS help. LEARNED Levine writes in a message that Paula appears on the All Williams Kinds of Minds ■■■ Web site: “Kids have very little tolerance for humiliation or failure. One of a student’s most important goals is to make it through the day without embarrassment.” Feelings of inferiority when it comes to learning can be triggered by one snicker, one unkind word, one person singling a student out as “different” or “needy.” Of course, no teacher really intends to do that to a student, but teachers do wield great power to inspire or to destroy a student’s spirit. Levine goes on to say: “Success is a vitamin that every kid must take in order to thrive during his or her school years. We, as teachers and parents, must make sure that this critical learning “supplement” is available to all students.” Success is the ticket for every student, whether or not they have a learning difference. We must help students who do learn differently understand that a learning disability does not mean they are dumb, they are lazy, or that they cannot learn. On the contrary, many people go on to lead successful and productive lives when they learn how to learn. Did you know that Nelson Rockefeller, who was governor of New York and vice president of the United States, had a severe reading problem growing up? Do you know that Tom Cruise has a reading disability? Woodrow Wilson did not learn to read until he was 11 years old, and Whoopi Goldberg has succeeded as an actress despite having reading problems in school. Yes, there is great potential in all our students, including those with disabilities, but it is critical that we help them find success early and often in their school careers in order for them to become productive students and citizens.

Price of gold sends strong message to America

ctober is Disability Awareness Month, and in Guilford County alone, 1,600 professionals serve more than 11,000 students with disabilities, ages 3-21. That includes a wide range of disabilities – from autistic to developmentally delayed to learning disabled to intellectually disabled to hearing or visually impaired, just to name a few. It is my privilege to be counted among those 1,600 professionals serving some of our dearest and most special children. The goal of our Exceptional Children’s program in Guilford County is to provide a full continuum of services to meet the individual needs of students in the least restrictive environment. It is also our philosophy that early intervention is often the key for more meaningful learning and success. That means that, more often than not, regular education teachers are also the deliverers of instruction for our students with disabilities. Many of them sit in regular education classrooms and often do not stand out at all. So what is the difference? Most children come to school eager and willing to learn. That’s why I love kindergartners – they love school! However, before long, some students fall behind their same-age peers because of the way their brains are “wired.” In fact, Dr. Mel Levine, cochair and co-founder of All Kinds of Minds, a nonprofit organization that focuses on the neuroscience and development of children who learn differently, says that some children have brains wired to absorb lots of information at once while others can only absorb small bits of information at a time. Some must look at information – or a word – many times before grasping it. Do you remember learning to read? For most children, it’s simply a matter of learning the alphabet, learning the sounds the letters make, blending those sounds into words, learning a few exceptions, and BOOM! They are readers. It is simply not that easy for a student with a learning disability, or difference. These are students with average to aboveaverage intellectual abilities but whose “wiring” means they do not learn in traditional ways. They may need to see a word 80 times in order for it to move to the long-term memory part of their brains whereas a non-dis-

Lawmaker agrees to new ‘rap’ on Obama

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – A Kansas legislator who drew criticism for a “RedNeck Rap� against Barack Obama says he’ll produce another YouTube video praising the president. But Republican state Rep. Bill Otto also says he won’t apologize for his earlier posting. Otto agreed to make the new video after a meeting Wednesday with Topeka activist Sonny Scroggins, who was critical of the anti-Obama rap. In the “RedNeck Rap,� Otto wore a ballcap calling opossum “the other dark meat.� Otto says the words referred to his own “hillbilly� heritage, not to Obama, the nation’s first black president. Otto plans to post the video of his new rap next week and says he’ll praise Obama for trying to help older Americans. Otto is from the town of LeRoy, about 75 miles south of Topeka.


A 70-foot female blue whale that officials believe was struck by a ship is seen washed ashore on the Northern California coast Tuesday near Fort Bragg, Calif. The dead animal has a gash on its back estimated to be more than 8 feet long.

Blue whale washes ashore in California

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – A 70-foot, female blue whale that officials believe was struck by a ship has washed ashore on the Northern California coast in what scientists are calling a rare occurrence. The whale was first spotted on shore near Fort Bragg in Mendocino County on Monday night, hours after an ocean survey vessel reported hitting a whale a few miles away, said

Joe Cordaro, a wildlife biologist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s marine fisheries service. Blue whales are the world’s largest mammals. Students from California State University, Humboldt, examined the whale’s massive body Tuesday as it lay on its side in a rocky cove. “I was personally jazzed just to see the animal,� said Thor Hol-

mes, a lecturer in mammology at the school. He has examined other whale species that washed ashore but never a blue whale. The whale had two gashes on its back – at least one of which was deep enough to cut through the blubber down to the vertebral column, Holmes said. It otherwise appeared to be in good health. It’s unusual for blue whales to wash ashore, Cordaro said.

Last week, another blue whale washed up in Monterey County after being hit by a ship. Before that, the last time a blue whale washed onto a California beach was 2007. The whales are “usually far offshore, deep water animals,� Cordaro said. Although blue whales are considered endangered, experts say they have recently made a comeback.

Health secretary has minor skin cancer removed

Sweat lodge survivor speaks out

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) – More than 50 followers of spiritual guru James Arthur Ray had just endured five strenuous days of fasting, sleep-deprivation and mind-altering breathing exercises when he led them into a sweat lodge ceremony. It was supposed to be a religious awakening, the culmination of a $9,000plus-a-person retreat outside Sedona, Ariz., aimed at helping people find a new vision for life. But it wasn’t long before the ceremony turned into a terrifying experience. People were vomiting in the stifling heat, gasping for air, and laying lifeless

on the sand and gravel floor beneath them, according to participant Beverley Bunn. One man was burned when he crawled into the rocks, seemingly unaware of what he was doing, she said. When participants exhibited weakness, Ray urged them to push past it and chided those who wanted to leave, she said. “I can’t get her to move. I can’t get her to wake up,� Bunn recalls hearing from two sides of the 415square-foot sweat lodge. Ray’s response: “Leave her alone, she’ll be dealt with in the next round.� Bunn, a 43-year-old Texas resident, provided her

HPU to showcase University Center

Restaurants report brisk market sales BY PAUL B. JOHNSON ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – City restaurants – one local barometer of the vitality of the High Point Market – report decent to strong sales for the fall trade show that officially concludes today. “We’ve been better than the last market. We’re not complaining. From last Thursday to last night (Tuesday), we’ve been steady every night. One night has been as good as the other,” said Dennis Byrne, owner of the Claddagh Bar & Restaurant. In talking with his customers, Byrne found that trade show buyers and exhibitors generally are reporting good business and orders during the furniture market. Grateful Bread Owner Teresa Mackey said sales at her cafe have matched or improved from previous markets during this week and last week. Mackey said Grateful Bread’s busiest period took place before the formal opening of market last Saturday. “You have visitors in town, but they have the flexibility to leave their buildings and go out to lunch. We’ve still had busy days this week, but not tidal waves like last week,” she said. Liberty Steakhouse & Brewery General Manager Russ Hildebrand

Tom’s Place owner Chris Giannopoulous said business was up compared to the spring and fall markets of last year.


The importance of the High Point Market to restaurants in the city and Triad is reflected in an economic study of the trade show produced five years ago by Andrew Brod, economic researcher at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. According to Brod: Direct spending by marketgoers at food and beverage establishments and for catering totaled $45.4 million annually. The spending at restaurants and for catering contributed to more than 1,500 jobs in the region. The market overall has an annual economic impact of $1.14 billion and 13,516 jobs statewide.

said business was busiest on Friday and Monday during the fall market. Noticeable sales increases from market started the evening of Oct. 13, he said. “It’s been great. We weren’t disappointed,” Hildebrand said. Business was up at Tom’s Place compared to the spring market

and fall market of last year, said Owner Chris Giannopoulous. “The whole market has been good for me,” he said. Sales from the market picked up on Oct. 12 and continued strong through Wednesday, Giannopoulous said. | 888-3528

Market trophy creator operates with precision, speed ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT


Tomi Watson displays one of the trophies her company, Capitol Medals, produced for a market function. their work to be. Watson bought the business – she was tipped off that it was available by her husband who had worked with the husband of the previous Capitol Medals owner – just before market in April 2007. Worth York, who previously had worked at Capitol for more than 30 years, came by about once a week and served as Watson’s mentor until his death in August 2008. Capitol has done a lot of behind-the-scenes work

for market for years, providing trophies and engraving the plates for them for a number of furniture companies. Capitol also engraves the plates for the Furniture Hall of Fame trophies. The plates have to be bent to fit the trophies’ curved forms. This year, Phipps, a former printer, had to engrave and cut metal plates, telling who had created the trophies, then attach them to the bottom of the trophies.

Employee may be creating unsafe work environment

Regulators delay Duke rate hearing

cal. No problem when Phipps engraved the Best of Show plate. But, when he engraved the People’s Choice plate, the descender on the “p� encroached on the area where the Global Views name was engraved. Watson had Phipps do it over, adjusting the spacing just enough to keep the descender on the p from invading the space between the second “l� in Global and the capital “V� in Views. That’s how precise Watson wants


ear Abby: I work in a call center with 35 other workers. Recently our supervisor hired a woman who is mentally ill. We acknowledge that she has a right to work and, for the most part, she appears to be capable. The problem is she hears “voices� speaking to her and often responds to them. Other times she “hears� co-workers seated behind her plotting to kill her, which, of course, is not true. She disrupts those around her by constantly asking if they can hear what others are saying about her and what she should do about it. We have spoken to our supervisor about our concerns. His answer is, “Just be quiet and it will be OK.� We don’t dislike her – in fact, we’re sympathetic – but we resent the position we have been placed in. None of us have been trained to deal with mental health issues. Have you any suggestions on how to handle this? – Uneasy in Ohio

Dear Uneasy: Your supervisor is mistaken. Just being quiet is not the answer because the voices the woman is hearing are in her head. She’s acting this way because she has gone off her medication. This may be a workplace safety issue. Therefore, you and your co-workers must insist that the supervisor take

action to ensure that she’s not posing a threat to all of you. Dear Abby: Would it be Dear inappropriAbby ate or tacky ■■■ if I had a mother/ daughter dance at my daughter’s wedding? I know it’s a father/daughter tradition, and my husband will obviously have his dance with her, but I’d like to have a shot at it, too. My reason is purely selfish. Having lost my son two years ago, I will never experience the mother/son dance we were supposed to share at his wedding the year he died. Is this crazy? Horribly inappropriate? Am I being too selfish? – Sentimental in Yonkers


Dear Sentimental: Please accept my sympathy for the loss of your son. The mother/daughter dance is something you need to discuss with your daughter and her fiance. What you have in mind is unusual. However, it would be selfish only if you were to pressure your daughter into it over her objections. Dear Abby: I am extremely thin and have struggled for years with eating disorders and an

unhealthy relationship with food. It’s difficult for me to go out with family and friends because everyone watches me – from what I order to how much I consume – and comments on it. If they decide I haven’t eaten enough, they make hurtful comments about my weight. What I need people to understand is that it is just as hurtful to make fun of someone who is thin by calling him names such as “Stick� or “Bean Pole� as it is to mock a fat person. Some of us are thin because we are ill, whether it is physically or emotionally. Making fun of us is tasteless, hurtful and unhelpful. – Robert in N.Y.C. Dear Robert: I’m glad you wrote, because your letter provides me with the opening to remind my readers that joking about someone’s appearance isn’t clever or funny. It’s cruel. While the target may take those comments with apparent good humor, no one likes to be ridiculed. And frankly, when it happens, it demeans the speaker more than the person at which it is aimed. DEAR ABBY is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

RALEIGH (AP) – A hearing by electric regulators on Duke Energy’s request to raise its base rates in North Carolina has been delayed. The state Utilities Commission had planned to begin the examination Wednesday in Raleigh. But the Charlotte-based utility and the commission’s consumer representatives said the hearing was pushed back to Thursday after attorneys met Wednesday morning. The state Attorney General’s Office had asked earlier this week for more time to respond to additional testimony from Duke Energy.



William Carmichael HIGH POINT – Mr. William Jasper Carmichael, 95, formerly of 214 Paramount St. died October 20th, 2009, at High Point Regional Hospital.

HIGH POINT – Voting for the Showroom Design awards ended at 3 p.m. Monday, and by shortly after 4 p.m., the plates on the crystal trophies had been engraved with the winner’s names and were on their way – in padded, velvet lined cases – to the High Point Market. The turnaround for the Best of Show (Four Hands) and People’s Choice (Global Views) trophies for the Showroom Design & Merchandising Idea Awards was accomplished with little fanfare by Tomi Watson and Rusty Phipps of Capitol Medals, 108 Chestnut Drive. For three years, Capitol Medals has been getting the information by phone once the Showroom Design competition voting ends, engraving the plates and attaching them to the trophies in time for the presentation (at approximately 7:20 p.m.) the third night of market. Once the work is done, Watson takes the trophies to Alexis Kennedy of Emisare, sometimes at a meeting place between Chestnut Drive and the Stars Under the Stars site on the parking lot in front of Showplace so that Watson doesn’t have to fight market traffic and find a place to park. This year’s task was easier than last year when plates had to be engraved and affixed for six trophies that were awarded. There was one glitch, however. The spacing on the plates – especially for the winner’s name – for this year’s two trophies was identi-

Opera star proves nimble on his feet BY VICKI KNOPFLER ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER



Tony Griffey (right) gets dance instructions from Mallory Graham in preparation for Griffey’s performance Nov. 5 at New York’s Lincoln Center.



Service updates

Air Force Airman Jeffrey W. Gannon graduated from basic military training at Lackland Air Force Base, San Antonio. He is the son of Jeffrey and Susan Gannon of Asheboro and a 2009 graduate of Southwestern Randolph High School, Asheboro.

IGH POINT – Anthony Dean “Tony� Griffey is adding a new skill to his already impressive resume. He’s learning to dance. Griffey, a vocalist who specializes on opera, won two Grammy Awards last year for his lead role with the Los Angeles Opera in “Weill: Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny.� He’s being coached by former Broadway dancer, local choreographer and dance instructor Mallory Graham, who has won multiple Emmy Awards for his choreography. Griffey, 42, is one of 10 opera stars who will perform free of charge Nov. 5 at the reopening benefit gala for the New York State Theatre at Lincoln Center in New York. The theater is home to New York City Opera and New York City Ballet, and it recently was renovated. Griffey chose to sing – and dance to – “Singing in the Rain,� made famous by Gene Kelly. Griffey said he chose the piece because the evening is devoted to American music and because it allowed him to bring his desire to dance out of the closet. “My dream is that one day there will be a show called ‘Dancing with the Opera Stars,’� he said. Graham choreographed a ver-

sion of “Singing in the Rain� especially for Griffey, but he was forced to leave out Kelly’s famous swing around the lamp post because there will not be a lamp post on the New York stage. Griffey will use an umbrella, as did Kelly. Graham and Griffey began rehearsals Monday, and Griffey has

’My dream is that one day there will be a show called “Dancing with the Opera Stars.� ‘ Tony Griffey Grammy-winning tenor proved to be quite adept at dancing and light on his feet. The New York performance will be Griffey’s dance debut as an adult, but he made his actual dance debut at the High Point Theatre when he was in 10th grade. He danced and sang in a community performance, “Motion,� to benefit High Point Community Theatre. Graham choreographed “Motion,� and the two haven’t seen each other or worked together since. / 888-3601

Sen. Hagan names Tutterow 2009 Angel in Adoption

North Carolina Sen. Kay Hagan named Ken Tutterow of Greensboro her 2009 Angel in Adoption for his work as executive director of the Children’s Home Society of North Carolina. Sponsored by the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute, the annual Angels in Adoption event gives members of Congress an opportunity to recognize constituents for their work in adoption and foster care. Tutterow was one of 130 people from around the country who went to Washington, D.C., to be honored at a ceremony on Capitol Hill. CCAI is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that generates awareness about orphans and foster care in the United States

and the millions of orphans around the world. Tutterow became involved with the Children’s Home Society of North Carolina in 1980 when he became a foster parent for infants waiting for adoption. During the next 10 years, the Tutterows provided foster care to more than 50 infants. During the last 20 years, he has helped older children in the foster care system find homes. After leaving a career in the business world in the mid-1980s, Tutterow became a member of the Children’s Home Society of North Carolina’s board of trustees, serving as chairman of the board 1989-1990. Since 1990, he has been the Children’s Home Society’s president and CEO.

One area of cooperation that comes to mind is the improvements to the water line running along N.C. 62 through Trinity to Archdale. Working together allowed a larger water line to be installed, which will be beneficial when recruiting industry to the area. A cooperative effort, along with Randolph County, is the planning for a sewer treatment plant that would serve both Archdale and Trinity, and areas of the county. This will allow citizens to have sewer service where none is now projected.

UNC officials question gun symbol

CHAPEL HILL (AP) — Some University of North Carolina officials are up in arms about a rifle featuring the school’s symbol on its stock. The News & Observer of Raleigh reports that the Fort Collins, Colo.-based Historical Armory is advertising a .22-caliber rifle as a special “Historic Or-

ange County” edition with UNC’s Old Well engraved in the stock. The Old Well — a dome with white columns — is one of the federally registered trademarks of the university. The university was alerted by a graduate who called the symbol’s use on a firearm inappropriate.

A school official says the university had not licensed the use and referred the matter to its attorney. No guns have been sold or produced. The owner of the Historical Armory says the engravings on the rifle’s stock are meant to reflect local history.

Raising good cholesterol takes many approaches


ear Dr. Donohue: I need advice on how to raise my HDL cholesterol. It remains pretty much at 35 mg/dL (0.9 mmol/L). I exercise for 45 minutes at least three days a week. I drink a glass of red wine almost every night. I don’t want to take medication to correct this problem, as I already take simvastatin (Zocor). I am 69, and my weight is 153. My total cholesterol is 144 (3.7), and my LDL cholesterol is 84 (2.17). I’ll appreciate any suggestions. – L.T.


HDL (high-density lipoprotein) cholesterol – good cholesterol – takes cholesterol that’s clinging to artery walls to the liver for disposal. High levels protect people from heart disease and strokes. A man should have a reading equal to or greater than 40 mg/dL (1.04 mmol/L), and a woman’s reading should be 50 (1.3) or higher. You’re doing all the things you should do to raise HDL cholesterol. Aerobic exercise elevates it. The exercise has to be somewhat rigorous. A glass of red wine is another HDL cholesterol booster. Oils such as olive, canola, soy and flaxseed, as substitutes for butter, also increase HDL cholesterol. So do peanuts, walnuts, almonds and other nuts, as well as tuna, mackerel and trout. Stay away from trans fats (listed on all labels) and saturated fats (animal fats and whole-fat dairy items).















Avoid refined carbohydrates, such as table sugar and refined flour. HEALTH Let me mention Dr. Paul medicines Donohue that can ■■■ bring up HDL cholesterol. Niacin is one. Lopid and TriCor are two others, but they have to be used with caution if a person is taking a statin drug. Trilipix, a newer medicine, can be used in conjunction with statin medicines. Don’t drive yourself crazy over this. Your total cholesterol is remarkably low, as is your bad cholesterol – LDL cholesterol. Many things other than HDL cholesterol are important in the prevention of heart disease, and it sounds like you’re doing all of them. The cholesterol story is told in the booklet of that name. Readers can obtain a copy by writing: Dr. Donohue – No. 201, Box 536475 Orlando, FL 32853-6475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Can. with the recipient’s printed name and address. Please allow four weeks for delivery. Dear Dr. Donohue: You answered letters about chickenpox and its relation to shingles in past columns. I have never seen anything about having had oral or genital herpes and the

incidence of shingles. Since both are in the herpes family, it would seem that there is a likely connection. – J.W. The herpes virus family has eight members, all of which are somewhat related but none of which causes exactly the same illnesses. Herpesvirus 1 is the usual cause of cold sores; herpesvirus 2 is the cause of genital herpes infection. Neither has anything to do with shingles. Chickenpox virus is a herpes family member. It is the cause of both chickenpox and shingles. It lives on in nerve cells forever after chickenpox strikes. It reawakens later in life to bring on a shingles outbreak. Cytomegalovirus is another member of the family. It has nothing to do with shingles or herpes. The virus of mononucleosis is another herpes family member. It, too, has no relationship to shingles. A misunderstanding is quite understandable. Shingles is also said to be caused by the herpes zoster virus, which is just a different name for the chickenpox virus, an unfortunate choice of name. 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.

Hamlin set for redemption at Martinsville MARTINSVILLE SCHEDULE – S

hould the situation arise giving Denny Hamlin the ability to take a shot at Jimmie Johnson with the race on the line Sunday, don’t be surprised if Hamlin does just that. Now before suggesting that it is unlikely that anyone will get a shot at Johnson in the 500-lapper because he is the curSPORTS rent ruler of Martinsville Greer Speedway with Smith five victories ■■■ in the past six races there, consider: Hamlin was the winner of the race that Johnson didn’t win in that stretch, has an average finish of eighth there and was leading in the Cup series’ last visit in March when Johnson moved him out of the way with 16 laps to go. That turn of events which kept Hamlin from winning on his native-state track for the second time is still etched in his mind to the point that he could try to move Johnson out of the way if victory is hanging in the balance. “If I’m in the same situation, I definitely will have that in the back of my mind and will probably do the same to him,” Hamlin said. “There have already been instances at the end of some races – Loudon and Chicago – where I’ve nudged Jimmie out of the way for position. But it’s not been for a win.” Winning is all that matters to Hamlin now that two straight poor finishes have removed him from realistic contention for the series championship. He is 11th in the standings, 372 behind Johnson with five races to go. “I’m not going to say that I owe him one,” Hamlin said. “But I’m going to race hard to get a win, especially in the situation that I’m in now. I can afford to be a bit more aggressive to, you know, do everything I can.” Not that Hamlin expects Johnson or anyone else to hold back from going to the “bump-and-run” at Martinsville, one of the few tracks where the maneuver can be done without sending the victim into the wall. “If he is second behind me, he is probably going to do the same thing,” Hamlin said. “You put any driver in second at Martinsville and you are going to have the same result no matter what, even if you felt you owed the guy in first or not.” Hamlin can’t blame anyone but himself and his team for his Chase going awry. He was in good shape until he misjudged and cut across the

nose of Juan Pablo Montoya’s car while trying to keep the lead during a late restart two weeks ago at Auto Club Speedway. Hamlin almost escaped cleanly, but snagged the end of the wall separating the pits and the frontstretch. Last week, he led before an engine failure ended his night. With the prospect of a championship gone, Hamlin wants to get his third win of the season, which would be the most in any of his four seasons on the major league tour. He won two races in his rookie season in 2006 and each of the past two years. “As soon as California happened, I said, ‘Let’s win at least one more race this season,’ ” Hamlin said. “We’re going to contend for every race win we can from here on out. But we need to finish off those wins and get every point possible.” Although a championship is out of the question for Hamlin unless Johnson and some others run into a lot of trouble, Hamlin still believes he can have a respectable finish, needing only to gain 195 points to move into the top five. “What is feasible for us, if we got on a roll, is finishing in the top five,” Hamlin said. “We can get there if we finish like we’ve been running. There is no doubt in my mind we’ll contend each one of the five weeks. We have no weak race in the last five (Martinsville, Talladega, Texas, Phoenix and Homestead). “But obviously, there is no way we’re going to catch the front guys in the points. It’s going to be impossible to win a championship unless something freak happens.” | 888-3519


North Carolina’s Jordan Hemby (23) makes a tackle during the Tar Heels’ upset loss to Virginia on Oct. 3. UNC is still looking for its first ACC victory of the season as it takes on Florida State tonight at Kenan Stadium.

UNC vs. FSU: Not as much glamour CHAPEL HILL (AP) — Entering the season, this seemed like the perfect setup for North Carolina and Florida State: a nationally televised game, the first Thursday night home date in Tar Heels’ history and a matchup of contenders in the Atlantic Coast Conference division races. Reality has turned out much differently. These are teams that have gone from nationally ranked to a combined 0-5 in the ACC heading into late October. One boasts the league’s best offense and its worst defense, the other has the best defense and the worst offense. And both have plenty of unfulfilled expectations and frustrated fans. At least the Tar Heels (4-2, 0-2) can still claim the benefit of that national TV audience to showcase Butch Davis’ program and the novelty of the first Thursday nighter at Kenan Stadium. “It’s going to be a special night,” North Carolina quarterback T.J. Yates said. “It’s going to be a different feel.”

Probably, but it’s a lot less glamorous than everyone expected when the schedules were set. Bobby Bowden’s Seminoles (2-4, 0-3) were ranked 18th to start the year, but they’ve lost three straight games — all by 10 or fewer points — and have had to work through the growing distraction of Bowden’s uncertain future at the program he built into a national power. No one has to tell the Seminoles what they need to do more to quiet all the chatter. “Knowing the potential we have and the talent we have on this team, I really think we shouldn’t be 2-4,” receiver Bert Reed said. “But it is what it is. We have to learn from everything we’ve done and not let it happen again.” While the Seminoles still have a strong offense led by quarterback Christian Ponder, the defense ranks as the league’s worst (426.7 yards per game) and is allowing 28 points per game. In the last loss, the Seminoles gave up 49 points to the Yellow Jackets.

Duke finds reason to believe DURHAM (AP) — Coaches usually steer clear of bringing up gambling lines, but that didn’t stop Duke’s David Cutcliffe from posing a rhetorical question about the Maryland game. “Are we favored?” Cutcliffe asked. “Lord, have mercy.” Somehow, the Blue Devils (3-3, 1-1) have gone from losers against a Championship Subdivision team to 51⁄2-point favorites against one of the Atlantic Coast Conference’s perennial bowl teams. And with a week off

to savor a surprising rout of N.C. State and a few seemingly winnable games coming up — starting with this week’s visit from the Terrapins (2-5, 1-2) — perhaps a season that started with an embarrassing defeat against Richmond won’t wind up being a total loss after all. “The perception of Duke football has changed a lot — they’re pretty good,” Maryland defensive end Deege Galt said. “People kind of always looked at Duke as a pushover, and these guys aren’t even close to that.

They’re tough up front, they come off the ball hard, they’ve got some good kids on the edges and they know how to make plays. They’ve definitely got that going down there.” The upcoming stretch against Maryland, Virginia and North Carolina — teams that are a combined 6-9 against Bowl Subdivision competition — could go a long way toward determining whether Cutcliffe’s bold declaration in July that “I believe we are a bowl team” was prescient or merely premature.




uke football targets a rare two-game winning streak with a victory over visiting Maryland on Saturday. How rare? I’m glad you asked. The Blue Devils last posted consecutive victories in 2003. Duke bagged a 29-3 win over Western Carolina and a 27-24 triumph over Rice early in that campaign. You have to go back to 1994 to find Duke’s last two-game ACC winning streak. The Blue Devils opened that season with

seven straight victories, including a 3-0 start in the conference. That Duke squad finished 8-4 overall and 5-3 in league play. That was the last time Duke secured a winning season and bowl bid. The current Blue Devils stand 3-3 overall and 1-1 in league action after a 49-28 dismantling of N.C. State on Oct. 10. Duke will be favored to beat the struggling Terrapins (2-5, 1-2) at Wallace Wade Stadium. It’s far too soon to call these Blue Devils

a threat for the school’s first ACC football championship since 1989, when Duke and Virginia shared the crown. But with senior Thad Lewis directing a high-powered offense and the defense making some plays, a winning season and bowl bid are not out of the question in Durham. And those are most welcome topics of conversation for a program with 18 losing seasons since 1990.



Elon volleyball player Sarah Schermerhorn has been selected as the Southern Conference Student-Athlete of the Week for October 21. The former Southwest Guilford standout helped the Phoenix to a three-match winning streak with victories over Georgia Southern, Davidson and Winston-Salem State. A Colfax, N.C., native, Schermerhorn is a junior majoring in economics with a minor in accounting and has a GPA of 3.99. Schermerhorn tallied 21 kills for an attack percentage of .283 along with four service aces as the Phoenix moved to 18-4 on the season and 5-3 in league play. Defensively, she recorded nine block assists, averaging one block per set. Against Georgia Southern, Schermerhorn went 11-for-23 with two errors for an attack percentage of .391. She also posted two service aces. Schermerhorn and the Phoenix will look to add to their winning streak as it travels to Charleston, S.C., this weekend. to face.

UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; John Tavares scored in the shootout to give the New York Islanders their first victory of the season, 4-3 over the Carolina Hurricanes on Wednesday night. Jeff Tambellini and Frans Nielsen also scored in the shootout to help the Islanders (1-3-3) avoid their worst start in franchise history. Andy Sutton, Tim Jackman and Matt Moulson scored in regulation for New York. Matt Cullen scored in the second period. Erik Staal and Jussi Jokinen had goals in the third.

The Packâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Alan Sanchez took the kick and sent the ball through the wall and past sophomore keeper Michael Chesler. Chesler made six saves, including one just four minutes before Sloanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal to keep the Panthers within one.

SOUTHAMPTON, Bermuda (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; U.S. Open champion Lucas Glover brought a new set of irons to the PGA Grand Slam of Golf to start getting ready for next year, and it worked out beautifully in Bermuda at the PGA Grand Slam of Golf. Glover briefly gave up the lead to British Open champion Stewart Cink until running off three straight birdies around the turn at Port Royal Golf Course and closing with a 5-under 66 for a five-shot victory. Masters champion Angel Cabrera also had a 66 and finished second after Cink bogeyed the last hole for a 70. PGA champion Y.E. Yang, still struggling with jet lag after a flight full of delays from South Korea, shot 70 to finish last among the four major champions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I brought out new irons this week with the new grooves just to try and see how they work, because I wanted a couple of rounds under my belt with this new model,â&#x20AC;? Glover said. A new rule changing the dimensions of grooves in irons starts next year, although it is expected to affect wedges the most, and Glover kept his old wedges in the bag this week because he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to give up too much of an advantage. Ultimately, he won with his putter, especially the birdie putts on the ninth, 10th and 11th holes to pull away. Cink made bogey on the 12th and 13th, eliminating any drama in Bermuda. Glover finished at 11under 131.

becoming invisible man CHARLOTTE (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Steve Smith first used humor when asked if he saw a difference this season in his struggling quarterback, Jake Delhomme. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He has a little growth on his chest, but nothing (else),â&#x20AC;? Smith said, smiling. When a reporter followed up Wednesday by telling the Carolina receiver that Delhomme, with 10 interceptions, has never been through a stretch like this in his career, Smith jumped in. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t either, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think,â&#x20AC;? Smith said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new territory, unforeseen territory.â&#x20AC;? Indeed. There are 50 receivers in the NFL with more yards than the four-time Pro Bowl pickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 259. His measly 21 catches rank 49th, and he still hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t caught a touchdown pass through five games. Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s frustrations boiled over Sunday after catching just one pass for four yards in the Panthersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 28-21 win over Tampa Bay, when he told

two reporters that â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m no longer an asset to this team.â&#x20AC;? Smith didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t back down from the comments on Wednesday, but appeared ready to move on. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Am I going to apologize or go back on what I said? No, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at the moment and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how I felt,â&#x20AC;? Smith said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think I was disrespectful. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think I disrespected anybody. I actually donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe that I singled out any one particular person. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how I was received by the individuals that I had conversations with, an open dialogue.â&#x20AC;? Delhomme said he talked to Smith and stressed thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to do more than get the ball to his playmaker. Trouble is, the double teams that Smith normally faces have become nearly constant. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a competitive guy, who has a drive and a fire like no other,â&#x20AC;? Delhomme said of Smith. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure he was frustrated. I get frustrated, too, because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m trying to

get him the ball. I know what he can do with it in his hands.â&#x20AC;? Smith led the NFL in receptions, yards receiving and touchdown catches in 2005, and has been double-teamed ever since. But Carolina was still able to get him the ball. He caught 78 passes for 1,421 yards and six touchdowns last year and made the Pro Bowl despite being suspended for two games. This year, though, Smith has been a virtual nonfactor. Part of the problem is that Delhomme has been throwing it to the other team so much. Another is that the bracketing coverage Smith faces is even more intense. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happening because fellow receivers Muhsin Muhammad and Dwayne Jarrett have done little to create attention and â&#x20AC;&#x201D; until Sunday â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the running game had been a disappointment. The Panthers hope they can get Smith free, which will in turn get Delhomme out of his funk.

â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Skins work out play-calling mess ASHBURN, Va. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Jason Campbell knows there could be some mini-moments of chaos with Sherm Lewis calling the plays. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll probably be a couple of plays I have in my head,â&#x20AC;? the Washington Redskins quarterback said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;just in case if some reason it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get in on time.â&#x20AC;? The Redskins spent Wednesday trying to get a feel for their new front office-mandated

play caller. Lewis, who still carries the title of â&#x20AC;&#x153;offensive consultantâ&#x20AC;? and has been out of retirement for only two weeks, stood before the offenseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s morning meeting for the first time and went over the passing game. For coach Jim Zorn, who had his play-calling duties stripped by team management following Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loss to Kansas City, the exercise required some major

pride-swallowing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I need to have composure,â&#x20AC;? Zorn said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I need to understand what the reality of the situation is, and I think our players expect me to rise up. We expect them to play under adverse conditions. We expect them to risk it all. ... Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m conscious of whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not naive about whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on, and yet I have to just hold back on any feelings and make the decisions.â&#x20AC;?

Cutler finds love in Chicago LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take long for Jay Cutler to figure out Chicago is where he wants to be and the Bears donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to let him go. Acquired from Denver in a blockbuster trade for Kyle Orton, the quarterback is now locked in through the 2013 season after signing a two-year contract extension late Tuesday.

A relieved Cutler says he hopes to finish his career in Chicago and that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;done with this moving stuff.â&#x20AC;? The extension calls for approximately $20 million guaranteed and roughly $30 million in new money, according to a person familiar with the discussions. The person spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity

because the terms were not released. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it was mutual,â&#x20AC;? Cutler said Wednesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wanted to be here awhile and the Bears wanted me to be here awhile. It worked out for both of us.â&#x20AC;? General manager Jerry Angelo had no intention of signing Cutler to an extension this season but quickly warmed up to the idea after getting a close look at him.

CHARLOTTE (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Atlantic Coast Conference wants to find a city that will embrace and support its struggling football championship game. Charlotte thinks itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the spot, and the heavy hitters from the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business community lined up Wednesday to woo commissioner John Swofford. Former Bank of America CEO Hugh McColl, Quail Hollow Championship chief Johnny Harris and others vowed that Charlotte will impress the ACC through ticket sales and auxiliary events for the 2010 and â&#x20AC;&#x2122;11 title games that the league wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to return to Florida, where the game has struggled to draw fans. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It ought to be here in Charlotte,â&#x20AC;? Harris said in a news conference at Bank of America Stadium. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our pledge is to make this not only a game, but make it an event.â&#x20AC;? The game instead has been mostly a flop since itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s creation in 2005, and Swofford said he had no problems with creating a permanent home for the game. The key will be if Charlotte can do what Jacksonville and Tampa have not: sell tickets and generate buzz. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking for that consistency of local support that basically gives a base so that the game from an attendance standpoint is going to be successful regardless of the location of the two teams that play in it,â&#x20AC;? Swofford said.

The ACC began its football title game in Jacksonville after expanding to 12 schools. It drew 72,749 in 2005, then had announced crowds of 62,850 and 53,212. The ACC then pulled the game out of Jacksonville, giving it to Tampa in 2008 and â&#x20AC;&#x2122;09 and Charlotte for two years after that. The crowd last year was announced at 53,927, but the turnstile count was about half that. The ACC has been hurt by poor weather, unexpected matchups that have included a team from Florida only once, and not having schools in the national title picture. Boston College has been played in the game the last two years. A similar small, private school, Wake Forest, played in the 2006 title game. Charlotte, though, is a much more central location, with eight schools within 300 miles. With Meineke Bowl director Will Webb also managing the ACC game, there are plans to sell ticket packages and have other tie-ins. Swofford said theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re finalizing a deal that would guarantee the ACC team in the Meineke Bowl could not be the loser from the ACC championship game. Webb said the ACC will be in charge of selling or distributing 22,000 tickets to the teams, conference officials and sponsors. Charlotte officials hope to sell the rest to local and regional fans to fill up the nearly 74,000-seat stadium.

SEC suspends officiating crew BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Southeastern Conference has suspended officials from last weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Arkansas-Florida game after the crew was involved in its second controversial call of the year. Referee Marc Curlesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; crew called a personal foul on Arkansas defensive lineman Malcolm Sheppard in the fourth quarter as the Gators were rallying for a 2320 victory. The league said there was no video evidence to support the call. The same group of officials called the LSUGeorgia game earlier this month, which included a late unsportsmanlike conduct penalty the league said shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

have been called. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A series of calls that have occurred during the last several weeks have not been to the standard that we expect from our officiating crews,â&#x20AC;? SEC commissioner Mike Slive said Wednesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I believe our officiating program is the best in the country. However, there are times when these actions must be taken.â&#x20AC;? SEC associate commissioner Charles Bloom said this is the first time the league has publicly suspended a football crew like this. The SEC says the crew will be removed from its next scheduled assignment Oct. 31 and will not be assigned to officiate as a crew until Nov. 14.

KING OF THE ROAD: Cup points leader aims to add to Martinsville legend. READ IT THIS WEEKEND

Sports Editor: Mark McKinney (336) 888-3556


BGS duo gets shot in Trucks at Martinsville BY GREER SMITH ENTERPRISE SPORTS WRITER

MOTORSPORTS NOTEBOOK: Saturday’s NASCAR Truck Series race at Martinsville Speedway will have something of a Bowman Gray Stadium feel. Tim Brown and Burt Myers, who have won 11 of the past 14 Bowman Gray championships, are both entered. And the longtime rivals at the quarter-mile track will be teammates of sorts. Brown, who said weeks ago he had a deal for the Truck race, will be in the No. 08 Chevrolet owned by Bobby Dotter. Myers, who recently landed his ride, will be in the No. 07 which has Ken Smith listed as owner and Dotter as the crew chief.

DRAG ACTION Rockingham Dragway will host the IHRA World Finals for the last time in the foreseeable future this weekend. The event will shift to Virginia Motorsports Park south of Petersburg next year. Championships in all of the IHRA professional and sportsman classes are to be decided this weekend. Del Cox Jr., a rookie, is almost assured of the Top Fuel title with a 74-point lead over Bruce Litton. Qualifying for the sportsman classes begins today, with sportsman eliminations and professional qualifying starting Friday. Pro qualifying continues Saturday, with sportsman “Tournament of Champions” eliminations starting Sunday at 9 a.m. followed by the pro eliminations at 11 a.m.

POINTS LEADER Ron Hornaday Jr. is the Truck Series points leader by 197 points over Matt Crafton and also leads the series with six victories. The veteran has never won at Martinsville, however. His best finish in 14 starts at the .526mile track was a second in March to his truck owner, Kevin Harvick. A year ago, Hornaday led 154 laps before running out of fuel in the closing laps. “I’ve been coming here for a while now and for some reason, we just can’t seem to break through,” said Hornaday.

MILESTONE START Mike Skinner will make his 200th Truck start when he takes the green flag Saturday. Skinner, who is third in the standings, is tied with Dennis Setzer for the most Truck Series wins at Martinsville at three. “I love Martinsville. It’s very, very unique and just an awesome place. I love the fans up there and the whole setting,” said Skinner

AROUND THE REGION The NASCAR Southern Modified Tour will try for the second time to end its season Saturday night at Caraway Speedway. The 150-lap event was postponed by rain Oct. 10. George Brunnhoelzl III holds a 150-point lead in the standings and will claim the Tour’s championship for the first time by starting the race. Also on the docket are events for the track’s Sportsman, Legends Car, Street Stock, Mini-Stock and U-Car classes. Track officials announced Sammy Bullins won the Super MiniTruck championship by 46 points over Jason Poole. The Southern Modified title isn’t the only touring series championship set to be decided on an area track this weekend. The last race in the Carolina Clash dirt track series is slated Saturday at 311 Fastrack near Madison. Jeff Smith holds a 78-point lead over Ricky Weeks. Justin Labonte is a distant ninth. | 888-3519


Team owner Richard Childress smiles during a press conference at Lowe’s Motor Speedway last Saturday. Childress said personnel changes were going to be made on his struggling Cup teams. He carried through on Wednesday by switching around some of his crew chiefs.

Childress plays musical crew chiefs again BY GREER SMITH ENTERPRISE SPORTS WRITER

WELCOME – Richard Childress indicated recently that more changes would be announced for his racing teams in a continuing effort to make them more competitive on the Cup circuit. Those changes, in the form of more crew chief shuffling, came to fruition Wednesday. Following this weekend’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Martinsville Speedway, Todd Berrier will take over as crew chief of the No. 31 driven by Jeff Burton to allow Burton’s current crew chief, Scott Miller, to concentrate fully on his duties as competition director that he took over in a personnel shuffle earlier this year. Berrier most recently had been crew chief for the No. 07 driven by Casey Mears. Doug Randolph, who had served as crew chief on the No. 29 Nationwide Series teams since

going to RCR early this year, will take over as crew chief of the No. 07. Starting with this Saturday’s race at Memphis (Tenn.) Motorsports Park, Dan Deeringhoff will return as crew chief of the Nationwide Series team. Deeringhoff led Clint Bowyer to the Nationwide championship last season and began this year as crew chief of the No. 29 team before he was moved to RCR’s driver development program. “I said previously that RCR would continue to adjust our team lineups in order to have the right personnel in place and this is the next step in that process,” said Childress. “Todd, Doug and Dan are all proven winners, so the goal of these moves is to put them in the best situations to continue that success. I’m confident that making these changes now will be a benefit to the teams for the rest of this season as well as in preparing for 2010.” Berrier, who has 19 victories in NASCAR’s three national se- |888-3519

Button revives career to become champ SAO PAULO (AP) — Jenson Button didn’t have a job in Formula One after last season. With one race to go this year, he’s already the series winner and can’t say it loud enough: “I’m the world champion, the world champion, baby.” Button clinched this year’s title with a fifth-place finish at the Brazilian Grand Prix on Sunday, capping a remarkable comeback for a

driver whose career was virtually over just months before the season began. Button was with the Honda team that folded its F1 operations because of financial trouble. He was left without a job and his chances of finding another ride were slim at best. “I didn’t know if I would be racing in Formula One this year. That is the truth,” Button said. “I had a

couple of options but nothing that would have furthered my career. I was thinking of taking a year out, but if you do that you get forgotten as many drivers have, so I am happy that we have been able to turn it around and get the car on the grid in Australia. “This is the end of the fairy tale.” Brawn GP took over the former Honda team just weeks before the season’s opening race.

ries, is switching teams for the second time this season. He began the year calling the shots for Kevin Harvick and moved to the No. 07 in a crew chief swap. Randolph has been a crew chief in either the Cup or Nationwide series since 2000. He was crew chief for Bobby Labonte at Petty Enterprises before that team merged with Gillett-Evernham Motorsports. Since joining RCR in May, he has directed the Nationwide team to two victories. Childress is winless on the Cup level since Burton prevailed a year ago at Lowe’s Motor Speedway. Bowyer won for the last time at Richmond in May of last year, and Harvick hasn’t won a points race since the 2007 Daytona 500. RCR enjoyed one of its better outings of the season last Saturday at LMS as Bowyer finished sixth with Mears seventh, Burton 14th and Harvick 18th.

Trading goes cold on bank worries


NEW YORK (AP) – Spooked traders unraveled a stock market rally late Wednesday as worries mounted about banks and a jump in the price of oil. The Dow Jones industrial average ended down 92 points after having risen 78 points earlier in the day to a new high for the year. Analysts say a downbeat note from influential banking analyst Richard Bove raised concerns about Wells Fargo and sent investors rushing to dump financial stocks. Joe Saluzzi, co-head of equity trading at Themis Trading LLC, said the note was a reminder of troubles still in the economy and was enough to scare many traders. “They all ran for the ex-

The broader Standard & Poor’s 500 index fell 9.66, or 0.9 percent, to 1,081.40, after reaching 1,101.36, its highest level in the past year.

Two stocks fell for every one that rose on the New York Stock Exchange, where volume came to 1.4 billion shares compared with 1.2 billion Tuesday. Dan Deming, a trader with Strutland Equities in Chicago, said the S&P 500’s move above 1,100 made some investors uneasy about the market’s rise.

on Feb. 22. Frank was irked that some lenders pushed through rate increases ahead of the new rules. The Fed is writing rules to carry out provisions of legislation passed by Congress and signed into law by President Barack Obama in May. Last month, the central bank proposed sweeping new rules that would generally bar rate increases during the first year after an account is opened. It also would ban — with a few exceptions— increasing the rate on exist-

ing credit card balances. For instance, if a customer is behind more than 60 days on a payment, the rate on the existing balance can be boosted. The proposal also would require credit card companies to obtain a customer’s consent before charging fees or transactions that exceed their credit limit, and would forbid companies from issuing credit cards to people under the age of 21 unless they — or a parent or other co-signer — have the ability to make the required payments.

Watchdog: Much bailout money won’t come back

WASHINGTON (AP) — The man who watches over the $700 billion in government money given to banks and other institutions to avert a financial collapse said Wednesday he thinks it’s too early to say how much will be repaid to the taxpayers. Just as the Obama administration prepares to announce a new TARP-like program for small community banks, Inspector General Neil Barofsky said he believes that “it’s unrealis-

tic to think we’re going to get all of that money back.” The Treasury Department has spent more than $454 billion through TARP programs. Forty-seven recipients have paid back nearly $73 billion. That means more than $317 billion remains outstanding with the program set to expire Dec. 31. Later Wednesday, President Barack Obama is expected to announce the community bank assistance effort. The American Bank-

ers’ Association has asked for $5 billion in rescue-fund money to help small banks extend more loans. Asked on a nationally broadcast interview how he would grade the program, Barofsky said, “I think right now it would have to be an incomplete.” Barofsky did say the program was successful in “pulling us back” from a financial collapse, however. At the same time, he told CBS’s “The Early Show” that the resumption

The letter — dated Tuesday — was released on Wednesday. Upset by the behavior of credit card companies, Rep.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Moving up the effective date of tough new regulations to protect credit card customers from sudden interest rate increases could be a double-edged sword, according to Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke. It would benefit consumers by providing them with better safeguards sooner against abusive practices, the Fed chief said. But it could cut consumers’ voice out of the regulatory process and lead to companies having troubles implement-

of huge executive bonus payments by some of the same institutions that benefited from the government bailout has sown distrust and cynicism among many taxpayers. The mixed and blunt assessment came as the Obama administration takes steps to wind down and refocus the Wall Street rescue effort. Barofsky’s conclusions were in a quarterly report scheduled for release later Wednesday.



US Bancorp profit rises, bad loans increase MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — US Bancorp reported a 4.7 percent increase in its third-quarter profit on Wednesday and said bad loans aren’t growing as fast as they were earlier this year. US Bancorp continued to suffer from stress in home construction and related industries. From the end of June until the end of September, nonperforming loans rose 9.4 percent to $4.39 billion. Net charge-offs rose 12.1 percent. But the bank said the growth in bad loans and charge-offs was slower than in the previous quarter. The bank is seeing signs that the economy is stabilizing and even improving slightly, said Richard K. Davis, its chairman, president, and CEO.

AMR 3rd-quarter revenue plunges

DALLAS (AP) — American Airlines knows that not enough of you are flying. American’s parent, AMR Corp., said Wednesday that it lost $359 million in the third quarter. The airline wooed customers recently with its “We know why you fly” advertising campaign. And it brought in extra money by raising fees on checked baggage. But in a recession, that wasn’t enough. Traffic fell sharply, especially among business travelers. As a result, AMR said Wednesday, revenue tumbled 20.2 percent from the same quarter in 2008.

Eli Lilly posts profit ahead of forecasts INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Eli Lilly & Co. said Wednesday it turned a profit in the third quarter as sales volume on several drugs climbed, but its newest drug and key source of future revenue started slowly. Indianapolis-based Lilly also raised its 2009 forecast for the second time since July.

States threaten to sue FedEx

NEW YORK (AP) — The Attorneys General of New York, New Jersey and Montana said Tuesday that they plan to sue FedEx Ground, claiming the unit’s classification of workers as independent contractors rather than employees violates state labor laws. New York Attorney General Andrew M. Cuomo, Montana Attorney General Steve Bullock and New Jersey Attorney General Anne Milgram sent a letter to FedEx Ground accusing the unit of “blatantly misclassifying its drivers” and denying “these

individuals the employment rights they are guaranteed by law.” All three attorneys general are Democrats. FedEx’s model has come under fire in a number of states as workers sued for the right to health benefits, union organization capabilities and other rights not afforded to them under their current classification as contractors. About 30 states are investigating FedEx Ground to determine if the company is misclassifying FedEx drivers as independent contractors.

Morgan Stanley posts first profit of year

NEW YORK (AP) — Morgan Stanley returned to profitability for the first time in a year as income from its investment banking operations offset losses in commercial real estate. Morgan Stanley said Wednesday that stock and debt underwriting from investment banking, and rising profits from its retail brokerage business, which includes the Morgan Stanley Smith Barney joint venture with Citigroup Inc., more than balanced out $400 million in real estate losses. The New York-based bank earned $498 million in the July-September period, after losing $13.18 billion during the last three quarters combined. Investors reacted by

sending Morgan Stanley stock up sharply in morning trading. It jumped $2.04, or 6.3 percent, to $34.56. The commercial real estate losses are a reminder that the broader economy continues to struggle even as financial companies profit from their investment banking and trading operations. Morgan Stanley has invested more heavily in commercial real estate than some competitors like Goldman Sachs Group Inc. The value of commercial real estate has tumbled in many parts of the country as many small companies shut down due to the recession, leaving a growing amount of office building and shopping center space empty.



Continental reports $18 million loss


A Wells Fargo Bank in Palo Alto, Calif., is shown in this May photograph.

Wells Fargo earnings rise NEW YORK (AP) — Wells Fargo & Co. on Wednesday reported a $2.6 billion third-quarter profit as the company’s retail banking operations, including the loan business it acquired with the purchase of Wachovia Corp., offset its rising loan losses. Shares added 11 cents to $30.57 in early trading. San Francisco-based Wells Fargo joined other big banks in reporting continuing heavy losses from failed loans. Well Fargo said credit losses climbed to $5.1 billion, or 2.5 percent of its loan


portfolio. That is up from $2 billion a year ago and $4.4 billion in the second quarter. Unlike its retail banking peers, however, Wells Fargo was profiting from it traditional banking operations, which includes the big mortgage business it took on when it bought Wachovia at the height of the credit crisis a year ago. Wells Fargo reported interest income of $5.57 billion after accounting for $6.1 billion in credit losses, which includes the loan losses and adding more money to its loan loss reserves.

The increase in loan losses follows the pattern at other top U.S. banks, including Bank of America Corp., JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Citigroup Inc. Those banks’ results, however, were supported by their robust trading businesses. Wells Fargo has a relatively small trading operation. Wells Fargo also offered a more upbeat outlook than some of the other banks, saying it expects credit losses to peak in 2010, with consumer losses possibly even peaking by the first half of the year.

DALLAS (AP) — Continental Airlines Inc. lost money in the third quarter as business travelers stayed home, causing a nosedive in airline revenue. But not everything was bleak for Continental. Traffic picked up in September, even if it took cheap fares to get them on board. And the financial results were much better than a year ago. Houston-based Continental said it lost $18 million, or 14 cents per share. In the same quarter last year, Continental lost $230 million as it struggled with soaring jet fuel prices. Excluding charges for severance payments and write-downs, the company said it would have earned $2 million this summer, or 2 cents per share.

Boeing Co. loses $1.6 billion PITTSBURGH (AP) — Boeing Co. lost $1.6 billion in the third quarter as hefty charges from its delayed 787 and revamped 747 dragged down results. Those charges also forced the airplane maker to slash this year’s profit forecast. Shares of the Chicago-based company fell 59 cents, or 1 percent, to $51.30 in pre-market trade after results were announced Wednesday. Boeing is the world’s second-largest commercial plane maker after Europe’s Airbus.

IGH POINT – Margarita Rosario Murray firmly believes that every town needs a salsa social, and she channeled her considerable enthusiasm to bring one to High Point Friday night. “Salsa Social,” to benefit the High Point Area Arts Council, will be held at the temporary Arts on Main. Murray, who retired in 2007 after 35 years with North State Communications as a computer technician, is part of an informal group of several hundred people who travel throughout the state to attend salsa socials, which are composed of salsa and other Latin dancing, dance instruction and lots of socializing. The moveable group often goes to venues in the Triangle or in Charlotte, and members coordinate their activities through the social networking site www., group Triad Salsa Group in NC. Each Saturday, members dance at Artistika Concert Cafe in Greensboro. “We keep each other informed of events all over the state then we form a caravan and just go,” Murray said. Murray also regularly attends Arts Splash concerts sponsored by the arts council and had spoken to Executive Director Debbie Lumpkins about her desire to start salsa socials in High Point. Lumpkins received

temporary use of the first floor of the building where the arts council has its quarters, and she used the space for a jazz club last week during the fall furMurray niture market. Lumpkins also remembered Murray’s promise to help organize a salsa social if a space became available, so the jazz club will become a salsa club Friday night. The word “salsa” can mean many things related to spicy: a style of and passion for dance and music and a fierce sense of community. Murray has been dancing since she was a child in New York, where salsa dance was a huge part of her community. She’s happy to have found a similar community in North Carolina, and would like to bring her new hometown of High Point into the fold, she said. At salsa socials, professional dancers and brothers Pedro and Raul Montoya of Oak Ridge usually give salsa dance lessons for a charge, but they’re donating their services Friday night. “It goes back to trying to create a community bond,” Pedro Montoya said. “It’s one thing to make money, but it’s another to bring a community together.” DJ Paco of the Traid and DJ Mike of the Triangle will play music. Professional dancers Salsa Amigos of the Triad and


Instructor Raul Montoya helps a student during salsa lessons. The instructors stay after class to help their students practice. Mambo Dinamico of the Triangle will perform. Even beginners can learn enough to dance Friday night, said Pedro Montoya. Exact dance steps, however, probably are the least important element of the evening. A salsa social is about having fun and making friends. The regulars in Murray’s group include people from all walks of life and one man age 85 who dances every Saturday, at least. “Newcomers hear the rhythm, and it doesn’t take them long to pick up on the basic steps, then they take off,” Murray said. “It goes back to the cliche of feeling the music,” Pedro Montoya said. “You get an electrifying feel when you get in the room, and you feel the music. It comes down to that.” | 888-3601



What: Salsa Social When: 7 p.m.-midnight Friday, with free salsa dance lesson by Pedro and Raul Montoya at 8 p.m. and dance shows by Salsa Amigos of the Triad and Mambo Dinamico of the Triangle at 9 p.m.

SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) – Forget red. The arrivalsline carpet leading into Barker Hangar was yellow – appropriate, given the night’s honorees: Homer, Bart, Lisa, Marge and Maggie Simpson, all on hand recently to celebrate 20 years of “The Simpsons.” Their series is the longest-running American sitcom, the longest-running American animated program, and it recently surpassed “Gunsmoke” as the longest-running American primetime scripted entertainment program. “You know, it’s really weird,” noted Simpsons creator and series executive producer Matt Groening. “I mean, I thought the show would be successful. But the fact that we’re still standing here some 20 years later and talking about it is very peculiar. But very happy.” Brace yourself for another “Simpsons” milestone, as matriarch Marge Simpson appears on the cover of November’s Playboy, as well as in a three-page spread for the adult magazine. “Well, I talked to Marge today,” said Al Jean, “The Simpsons” executive producer. “She’s a little embarrassed. She wanted people to know the photo is Photoshopped. It’s really the body of Wilma Flintstone.” “It is hilarious,” added “Star Trek” actor George Takei. “(The Playboy spread) is the kind of thing that makes ’The Simpsons’ a perennial. It’s going to live long and prosper,” he continued, laughing. The carpet was crammed with guest stars who’ve lent their voices to “Simpsons” episodes.

West won and led a fourth club. East ruffed dummy’s ten, but declarer discarded a diamond. He won the diamond return, drew the last trump with the ace and lost only a spade to the ace. “He made the contract,” North said, “and put a few more gray hairs on my head.” It can be worth waiting to draw trumps. If South takes the K-A early, he goes down. He can start the clubs next and set up a winner in dummy, but he has no way to reach it. South will

“You never saw a procrastinator like my partner,” a club player told me. “His philosophy is that if something were worth doing, it would have been done already.” “I suppose he never draws trumps promptly,” I said. “Never. He makes me nervous.” At today’s four hearts, my friend’s partner won the first diamond with the queen. “He cashed the king of trumps,” North told me, “and I thought he might take the ace next. Instead he led the A-K and a third club, and I ordered a drink.”

DAILY QUESTION You hold: S A J 9 4 3 H Q 10 9 D K 8 5 C Q 5. The dealer, at your left, opens one diamond. Your partner passes, and the next player responds one heart. What do you say? ANSWER: Though you have 12 points and might have opened the bidding, to act now is too risky. Your king of diamonds may be worthless, and you have losers galore. The chance of gaining by overcalling one spade is uncertain, and the chance of being doubled and clobbered is real. Pass. South dealer Both sides vulnerable

First lady hula hoops for healthier kids

WASHINGTON (AP) – First lady Michelle Obama hooped it up for health – hula hooped, that is – managing to get in an impressive 142 swivels before her hula hoop hit the ground. Jumping rope double dutch? Not so much. It was all for a good cause – encouraging kids to get more physical activity and eat better. The first lady hosted a

“healthy kids fair” on the South Lawn of the White House on Wednesday and invited about 100 children and parents from local elementary schools. Chefs demonstrated how to make healthy-butyummy snacks. And the first lady delivered a pep talk about eating right. It wasn’t all gloom, doom and nutrition. Obama said it’s OK to eat

fun stuff sometimes – as long as you usually eat right. “There’s nothing that the first family loves more than a good burger, right?” Obama said. “And look, my favorite food in the whole wide world are french fries. I love them. Dearly. Deeply. I have a good relationship with french fries and I would eat them every single day if I could.”
