Center focuses on relationships
HIGH POINT – There’s the kind of relationship between a doctor and a patient that involves check-ups, diagnoses and basic conversations about treatment and options. Then there’s the kind of relationship where a doctor attends a patient’s graduation or assists someone in achieving one of their last dreams. That’s the relationship that Zeke Cardwell, the youngest cancer patient to ever be treated at the Charles E. and Pauline Lewis Hayworth Cancer Center, had with his doctors.
“We became friends,” said Janet Forrest, manager of patient rights and oncology services. “He changed a lot of lives here.” The bond that a patient shares with the staff is especially important during October, also known as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Forrest said. She said the cancer center was designed to deliver total care to cancer patients, not just treat their diseases. Cardwell was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2004 at the age of 17.

In recognition of national Breast Cancer Awareness Month, this four-part series highlights the Cancer Center at High Point Regional Health System. The center recently gained area and national recognition as a top facility in the Triad specializing in the treatment of cancer patients. This series looks at the workings of the center, from its total-care approach to caring for patients and their families to the cutting-edge technology and research that has made it a premier facility.

HIGH POINT - There are a lot of X-rays, treatments and prescription drugs involved in the care of every person who is diagnosed with cancer. But Janet Forrest, manager of patient rights and oncology services at High Point Regional Health System, knows there’s more to care-giving than medicine. “Treating cancer is our business, but cancer families are who we care for,” she said. “We’ve tried to make a safe space that invites all of the good stuff to happen here.” With that mind set, an array of programs that treat patients in other ways have been created at the Charles E. and Pauline Lewis Hayworth Cancer Center. Specifically designed for breast cancer patients are two, non-conventional ways of dealing with cancer and life with the disease - a special knitting circle and yoga class. Every Wednesday, a group of breast cancer survivors or family members who have been affected by the disease meet in the can-

The hosHigh Point pital supRegional plies the Cancer Center yarn and ■■■ ■■ needles for the knitters, and they supply each other with support and stories of survival and their battles with the disease, according to Ellen Miller, a customer service representative in the Cancer Resource Center. “It really turns into a support group,” she said. “When their hands are busy, their spirits are up.” Staying active is the purpose of another total care program provided by the hospital to cancer patients – a yoga class held every Monday. A retired physical therapist and certified yoga instructor, Susan Rostand teaches methods that both keep patients in shape and ease their minds. “It’s about learning to become very present and aware of what’s going on right now,” she said. “It’s about learning to be quiet and letting go of the gunk in your mind. For cancer survi-

AT A GLANCE
The Charles E. and Pauline Lewis Hayworth Cancer Center opened at High Point Regional Health System in 2003. In the same year, the cancer program was reaccredited at the highest level of approval from the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons. It was named in recognition of the $2 million gift given by the late Pauline Hayworth in memory of her husband, Charles. The cancer center ranked higher than any other community comprehensive center in the Piedmont Triad in the U.S. News and World Report’s Cancer Hospital 2009 Rankings. It was ranked highest in several categories including: the availability of intensivists, magnet nursing status, nurseto-patient staffing ratios and total volume of cancer cases treated. vors, that’s very important.” Because most women who are diagnosed with breast cancer are over the age of 50, Rostand takes the women through a range of poses that stretch their muscles and keep them in shape. “Sometimes, when patients have cancer, they’re scared to move,” she said. “We can move safely here, and it also turns into a support group.” When it comes down to it, that’s what Forrest says the cancer center’s philosophy to total care is all about. “Total care is about reaching out to them, not only medically,” she said. “It’s a very emotional road, and we try to meet those needs as well.”

Tax seminar Monday aims to help unemployed ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT
GREENSBORO – An upcoming public tax workshop is designed to help area unemployed workers and others who may be eligible for a tax credit that could assist them with health coverage costs. The Internal Revenue Service is holding the seminar about the Health Coverage Tax Credit from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday at the Greensboro Marriott Downtown. “This credit makes health coverage more affordable by allowing eligible individuals to pay only 20 percent of their health insurance premiums each month,” the IRS reports. The credit is available to workers who lost jobs because of offshoring, in addition to certain retirees. The credit can help those deemed eligible and their families pay their health insurance premiums, said Mark Hanson, IRS spokesman for the Carolinas out of the Greensboro office. The IRS estimates that about 4,000 people in the Triad may be eligible. So far only 500 are taking advantage of the credit, Hanson said. Nationwide, thousands
of people are potentially eligible, the IRS reports. Some of them are displaced workers who are certified by the U.S. Department of Labor as eligible to receive Trade Readjustment Allowances under the Trade Adjustment Assistance Act. Others qualify because they receive benefits from the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp. and are between 55 and 65 years of age. The Health Coverage Tax Credit Program partners with government agencies and health plan administrators to deliver the tax credit to eligible individuals. The credit is available on a monthly basis to help individuals pay their health insurance costs as they become due or on a yearly basis when they file their federal tax return. The credit is a refundable tax credit, meaning it is paid in full no matter how much federal income tax an eligible individual owes, the IRS reports. The program began in 2002 and was expanded this year through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, commonly referred to as the stimulus. For more information, call the IRS at 1-866-628-4282.

Because he had a cancer that usually occurs in adults, he was kept at the center under the care of Dr. Bernard Chinnasami, an oncologist at High Point Regional Health System. When the high school senior first arrived, he revealed to Dr. Chinnasami that he had a goal: to graduate from South Davidson High School. He continued his studies while on treatment and, when the big day finally came, Dr. Chinnasami was there to see him walk across the stage. “I thought this was wonderful. He really took care of the person that Zeke was,” said Sheila Cardwell, Zeke’s mother. “Zeke had no one his age at the center to talk to, but he could talk to the staff so easily.” The oncologist talked with Cardwell about other goals, such as going to college. If he earned a degree, he would be the first one in his family to do so. Cardwell enrolled in college while still under

RALEIGH (AP) – Seven more violent criminals could potentially be freed because of a court ruling and good conduct credits, North Carolina prison officials said Saturday. The men join 20 others who had been preparing for their release, but the future of all the prisoners remains uncertain. Earlier this month, the North Carolina Supreme Court ruled in favor of prisoner Bobby
Bowden, who argued a 1970s state law defined a life sentence as 80 years. Time-off credits allowed some like Bowden to get a day-for-a-day for good behavior, and 20 inmates qualified for release. Their release had been scheduled for Oct. 29. But that was put on hold after Gov. Beverly Perdue said prison officials didn’t have authority to apply the credits to inmates in prison for life.

The incumbents say the filing deadline just sneaked up on them, but they have a solution: They’ll just show up at the polls and write in each other’s names. Gaston County Elections Director Frances Pinion says it’s not unusual for no candidates to file in small com-
munities like this one. Write-ins usually solve the problem, but Pinion says Spencer Mountain’s charter keeps incumbents in office until new officials are elected, so the seats won’t be empty. There are 29 registered voters in Spencer Mountain.

MEET THE CANDIDATES
Shelton says 4-year terms would better serve residents THOMASVILLE â€“ Pat Harris Shelton is seeking reelection to the the Thomasville City Council. A Thomasville native, her father was a veteran of the Thomasville Police Department and her mother retired from North State Telephone. She has more than 30 years of accounting/business experience and currently is an administrative specialist/receptionist for a Thomasville manufacturer. She is a former Girl Scout and has served as a Troop Leader, Service Unit Chairman and Board Member. A former Sunday school teacher, she also has served on several church committees and is a former volunteer with CCM and the city Beautification Committee. Currently, she volunteers at Thomasville City Schools. She and her husband, Glenn, have one son.
As a council member, I strongly supported having the referendum put on the ballot in a regularly scheduled election. On a personal level, I think the citizens will be better served by having the continuity that 4-year staggered terms bring. There is a learning curve for any new job, especially one in government, so having four-year staggered terms gives newly elected council members the benefit of having experienced colleagues to assist them. More importantly, it allows the citizens to have the benefit of experienced representatives making the decisions that affect our city.

U.N. nuclear inspectors head to Iran to visit site VIENNA – A team of U.N. inspectors went to Iran on Saturday to visit a recently revealed nuclear site, amid new efforts to curb Iran’s nuclear program. The International Atomic Energy Agency experts are slated to examine an unfinished uranium enrichment facility near the holy city of Qom to verify it is for peaceful purposes. Disclosure of its existence last month raised international suspicion over the extent and aim of the country’s nuclear program.
Saudi journalist gets lashes for sex show RIYADH, Saudi Arabia – A Saudi court on Saturday sentenced a female journalist to 60 lashes after she had been charged with involvement in a TV show in which a Saudi man publicly talked about sex. Rozanna al-Yami, 22, is believed to be the first Saudi woman journalist to be given such a punishment, but there were conflicting accounts about how the court issued its verdict. “I am too frustrated and upset to appeal the sentence,” said al-Yami.
Parliament speaker: West is trying to cheat Iran TEHRAN, Iran – Iran’s parliament speaker has accused the West of trying to cheat Iran with a U.N.-drafted plan that would ship most of the country’s uranium to Russia for enrichment. The semiofficial ISNA news agency has quoted the speaker, Ali Larijani, as saying Saturday that Iran prefers to buy the nuclear fuel it needs for a reactor that makes medical isotopes rather than accept the U.N. plan.
Strong quake hits eastern Indonesia JAKARTA, Indonesia – A powerful earthquake struck deep under the sea in eastern Indonesia on Saturday, causing panic and sending residents running out of their homes, officials and witnesses said. There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries. The quake had a magnitude of 7.0, but at a depth of 86 miles was too far below the earth’s surface to cause a tsunami, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said. Saturday’s quake came as Indonesia is still recovering from a devastating earthquake last month that killed more than 1,000 people. ENTERPRISE NEWS SERVICE REPORTS

Taliban threaten voters KABUL (AP) – Taliban militants threatened Afghans with violence Saturday if they vote in the Nov. 7 runoff presidential election, as President Hamid Karzai’s campaign ruled out any power-sharing deal to avoid another ballot. Supporters of Karzai’s challenger, meanwhile, urged the country’s top three election officials to step down – alleging they were involved in rigging the first round of fraud-
marred voting in August and should not be responsible for organizing the upcoming vote. President Barack Obama’s administration is hoping the runoff will produce a legitimate government after massive ballot-rigging sullied the first-round vote Aug. 20. Another flawed election would cast doubt on the wisdom of sending tens of thousands more U.S. troops to support a weak government tainted by fraud.
Pakistani army takes Taliban chief’s hometown ISLAMABAD (AP) – Pakistani soldiers captured the hometown of the country’s Taliban chief Saturday, a strategic and symbolic initial prize as the army pushes deeper
An army spokesman said the Taliban were in disarray. into a militant stronghold along the Afghan border. An army spokesman said the Taliban were in disarray, with many deserting the ranks. The 8-day-old air and ground offensive in the South Waziristan tribal region is a key test of nuclear-armed Pakistan’s campaign against Islamist militancy. It has
already spurred a civilian exodus and deadly retaliatory attacks. Washington has encouraged the operation in the northwest because many militants there are believed to shelter al-Qaida leaders and are also suspected to be involved in attacks on Western troops in Afghanistan. The U.S. military has also kept up its own missile strikes in the lawless tribal belt, including a suspected one that killed 22 Saturday. The battle for Kotkai town was symbolically key because it is the hometown of Pakistani Taliban chief Hakimullah Mehsud and one of his top deputies, Qari Hussain. It also lies along the way to the major militant base of Sararogha.
The Taliban issued their warning on the first official day of campaigning for the runoff, denouncing the contest between Karzai and former Foreign Minister Abdullah Abdullah as “a failed, American process.” They said fighters would “launch operations against the enemy and stop people from taking part” in the election, warning that anyone who casts a ballot “will bear responsibility for their actions.”

Abbas decrees elections, with or without Hamas RAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) â€“ Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said Saturday his government would hold presidential and parliamentary elections on Jan. 24, regardless of whether it reaches a power-sharing deal with the rival militant Hamas group that rules the Gaza Strip. Hamas criticized the announcement, deepening the rift between the Islamic group and Abbasâ€™
secular Fatah movement, which have led dueling governments in Gaza and the West Bank for the past two years. The split has complicated efforts at Israeli-Palestinian peacemaking. The decision to hold balloting in the West Bank, east Jerusalem and Gaza satisfies a legal requirement that Abbas decree elections, but binds him to a vote that many see as unlikely to
happen, given Hamas opposition. Abbas said Palestinian law required him to decree elections for January after Hamas rejected a unity deal that would have postponed elections until June. â€œWhen we didnâ€™t reach national reconciliation, we returned to the constitution and the law,â€? Abbas told the Palestine Liberation Organizationâ€™s central council in Ramallah.

Michelle Obamaâ€™s gripe: Presidentâ€™s tennis game BURBANK, Calif. (AP) â€“ Whatâ€™s President Barack Obamaâ€™s most annoying habit? Practicing his speeches for hours in front of the bathroom mirror? Talking too much foreign policy at the dinner table? No, first lady Michelle Obama said Friday itâ€™s his tennis game. When they play, the president usually wins. â€œHe beats me quite often,â€? she said on NBCM. Obama TVâ€™s â€œThe Jay Leno Show,â€? appearing via satellite hookup from the White House. â€œThat gets to be pretty annoying.â€? The show was taped for airing later Friday evening. In a brief skit, Leno pushed her to talk about her husbandâ€™s flaws. At first, she sarcastically said he has none. â€œHeâ€™s perfect,â€? she quipped. Then she let it out: Itâ€™s their battles on the tennis court that get her peeved. It also looks like Bo â€“ the Obamasâ€™ dog â€“ is living like a king.

National emergency Obama makes declaration over swine flu outbreak
Pilot who overshot airport denies napping MINNEAPOLIS – The first officer of the Northwest Airlines jet that missed its destination by 150 miles says he and the captain were not sleeping or arguing in the cockpit but he wouldn’t explain their lapse in response and the detour. “It was not a serious event, from a safety issue,” pilot Richard Cole said late Friday.
Church janitor charged in slaying of N.J. priest MORRISTOWN, N.J. – A janitor was charged with murder Saturday in the slaying of priest whose body was found in the rectory of his northern New Jersey church. Morris County Prosecutor Robert Bianchi said that 64-year-old Jose Feliciano stabbed the Rev. Ed Hinds 32 times on Thursday after the pair argued.
million doses have gone out to health departments, doctor’s offices and other providers, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention officials. Administration officials said the declaration was a pre-emptive move designed to make decisions easier when they need to be made. Officials said the move was not in response to any single development. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius now has authority to bypass federal rules when opening alternative care sites, such as offsite hospital centers at schools or community centers if hospitals seek permission. Some hospitals have opened drive-thrus and drive-up tent clinics to screen and treat swine flu patients. The idea is

President Obama declared the swine flu outbreak a national emergency. to keep infectious people out of regular emergency rooms and away from other sick patients. Hospitals could modify patient rules – for example, requiring them to give less information during a hectic time – to quicken access to treatment, with government approval, under the declaration.
It also addresses a financial question for hospitals – reimbursement for treating people at sites not typically approved. The national emergency declaration was the second of two steps needed to give Sebelius extraordinary powers during a crisis.

WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama declared the swine flu outbreak a national emergency, giving his health chief the power to let hospitals move emergency rooms offsite to speed treatment and protect noninfected patients. The declaration, signed Friday night and announced Saturday, comes with the disease more prevalent than ever in the country and production delays undercutting the government’s initial, optimistic estimates that as many as 120 million doses of the vaccine could be available by mid-October. Health authorities say more than 1,000 people in the United States, including almost 100 children, have died from the strain of flu known as H1N1, and 46 states have widespread flu activity.

LEXINGTON – Heavy rain didn’t stop those who attended the 26th annual Lexington Barbecue Festival from enjoying the city’s world-famous barbecue Saturday. With bursts of rain falling on the festival, lines still formed around 9:30 a.m. for people purchasing barbecue in Uptown Lexington. Those festivalgoers eventually rushed to get shelter or ate sandwiches under their umbrellas. Taking shelter underneath a canopy at BB&T Bank, Lexington resident Tad Proctor said his city’s barbecue “is always the best” after just eating a sandwich. Like many others, Proctor said he has attended the barbecue festival all 26 years. “I was in Atlanta this week, and they’ve heard about it down there,” he said. “It’s been on the Travel Channel. Lexington is becoming known for barbecue, which is good, considering what else has

Mark Everhart, who served as the operations manager for John Wayne’s Lexington Barbecue and Stamey’s Barbecue tent, said employees began
cooking as early as 5:30 a.m. at the festival. While some lined up for barbecue in the rain, Everhart said the rain did cause business to be slow. He had hoped for it to pick up by afternoon. Kelly Evans, of Charleston, S.C., brought her father, Mack Evans, to the festival because he is a big fan of the bands Coastline and Chairmen of the Board, which both performed at the festival. Kelly Evans was also joined by her hus-
band, Shane Langdale, and their five children. “I think it’s huge,” Kelly Evans said of The Barbecue Festival. “I didn’t realize it was so big. If the weather was better, it would be much better.” Aside from Coastline and Chairmen of the Board, the festival featured country music stars Chris Young, David Nail, Joey & Rory, Megan Mullins, Richie McDonald and Big Kenny. firstname.lastname@example.org 888-3657

FAYETTEVILLE (AP) â€“ Authorities say two people in North Carolina were injured after their sport utility vehicle got stuck on the tracks and was hit by a passenger train. Multiple media outlets reported Saturday that five people were inside the SUV when it got stuck on the tracks in a construction zone in Fayetteville. Four people had gotten out and were trying to move the vehicle when the Amtrak train hit it at about 9:30 p.m. Friday. Authorities say 15year-old girl still inside the SUV suffered minor injuries. The teenâ€™s mother broke several ribs and was taken to a hospital.

Jim Huntâ€™s legacy to be set in stone MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE
RALEIGH â€“ When Jim Hunt first walked onto the N.C. State University campus a half century ago, he planned to study to be a dairy farmer. He likely never imagined a building there would one day be named for him. But future generations of NCSU students, along with researchers, industrialists and educators, will use the James B. Hunt Jr. Library,
which will open in 2012 as the centerpiece of the collegeâ€™s Centennial Campus. Hunt Hundreds of people turned out Friday morning to break ground for the library and to pay tribute to the former four-term governor. Afterward, the Wilsonian deflected attention from himself.
â€œIâ€™m very excited, not for me, but for what itâ€™s going to do for the state,â€? Hunt, 72, said in an interview. â€œTheyâ€™ll do great things here for the economy, education and the environment.â€? The library ground breaking came on the 25th anniversary of the Centennial Campus, which was founded during Huntâ€™s second term as governor. In the early 1980s, Raleigh city leaders approached Hunt about acquiring a 1,500-acre dairy farm that
had originally been part of the Dorothea Dix facility, he recalled Friday. They wanted to use the land for new neighborhoods. Instead, Hunt had the idea â€œfor a higher and better cause,â€? he said â€“ a new college campus where students and researchers would work closely with the companies that would benefit from their expertise. â€œPeople called it a pipe dream,â€? he said. â€œBut itâ€™s working, even better than we ever imagined.â€?
Founded in 1984, the Centennial Campus is now home to 29 buildings, 10 of which are privately owned, according to NCSU Chancellor James Woodward. More than 50 corporate, government and non-profit partners have offices on the campus, employing more than 2,200 people. The campus also has 1,350 faculty and staff and serves more than 3,400 NCSU students during a year, he added. â€œWithout Jim Hunt,
thereâ€™s no Centennial Campus,â€? Woodward said. The construction of the Hunt library â€“ a 200,000square-foot building, costing around $115 million -- will give the campus a landmark building, Woodward said. Erskine Bowles, president of the University of North Carolina system, called the name fitting for â€œmy hero, Jim Hunt, the greatest governor this state has ever had. â€œThis is a 21st century library for a 21st century campus.â€?

ON THE IMPORTANCE OF EARLY DETECTION
BREAST CANCER Awareness Month
â€œBreast cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in women in America. The good news is that the majority of women who are diagnosed with breast cancer survive, and live full and active lives after treatment. Early detection continues to be a key factor in the ever-increasing odds for survival. An annual mammogram is the single most effective method of identifying breast changes that may be cancer, long before physical symptoms can be seen or felt. Digital mammography, which is now offered by the Piedmont Comprehensive Womenâ€™s Center, improves the accuracy and the convenience of this test when compared to the conventional method. The image is captured in digital format rather than on traditional X-ray film, leading to much greater resolution and subsequent accuracy. This is similiar to the difference now being seen in HD (high definition) television and flat screen monitors compared to the old style â€œpicture tubeâ€?. The images are displayed immediately on the monitor, which allows the radiologist to view mammography results essentially immediately, leading to shorter exam times. Patients should notice greater comfort and less time spent getting this important test done. For most women mammography screening should begin at age 40 and continue annually throughout her life. This year, celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness Month by scheduling your annual mammogram, and encourage your mother, aunts, sisters and friends to do the same.â€?

‘Pope Joan’ film hits theaters in Germany BERLIN (AP) – John Goodman has swapped his “Big Lebowski” sunglasses for the flowing royal blue and gold embroidered robes of 9th-century Pope Sergius, whom he plays in a newly released film “Pope Joan.” The German-made film, based on Donna Woolfolk Cross’ book of the same name, tells the story of a woman born in 814 A.D. in the German city of Ingelheim who disguises herself as a man and rises through the Vatican ranks to become the only female pontiff in history. It will be released Thursday in Germany.
Goodman, who stars opposite German actress Johanna Wokalek in the title role, told reporters this week that the role required surprisingly little preparation, despite the departure from the many comedies for which he is best known. “When I put on my dress,” said Goodman, referring to the luxurious papal robes he donned for the part, “everything fell into place, the actors – everything – was wonderful. They did my job for me.” Wokalek, who is relatively unknown outside of Germany but received considerable acclaim for her role in the 2008 drama
“The Baader Meinhof Complex,” said she saw the film as a celebration of a strong woman “who sought to overcome all obstacles and find the strength repeatedly to do so, regardless of what hardships she met with along the way.” For Goodman, best known for playing Dan Conner on the hit sitcom “Roseanne” in the 1980s and ’90s, playing a commanding pope in a historical drama required above all a change of wardrobe. “They would not let me wear sunglasses,” joked Goodman, referencing arguably his most famous role as the shades-wearing Walter
Sobchak in the cult classic “The Big Lebowski.” Cross told reporters her 400-page novel was based on the historical information recorded about Pope Joan who, disguised as “Brother John,” became Pope Sergius’ personal physician and confidant, before allegedly becoming pope herself. Many scholars believe that Pope Joan was a Medieval legend. “What I wanted was to take that fascinating skeleton of a story and put flesh on it: give it laughter, smiles, tears – the things that make a story human,” she said.

Hal Warlick, Dean of the Chapel at High Point University, will deliver a sermon, titled “Putting Life Together,” during the weekly worship service at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday in Hayworth Chapel on the HPU campus.

Members of Congress live off of our sweat It’s easy for the average American not to complain if he has everything going for him. We now know that Congress has it all when it comes to a comfortable lifestyle, practically free medical coverage. They have no inconveniences at all. Short hours, pay raises, which they vote for themselves. We are still the puppets which they pull to suit themselves. If illegals come here, it doesn’t hurt Congress members. Gas prices, high food cost, none of this affects them. They live in their own comfortable world, and the heck with everybody else. The only problem I have is we work and pay for their convenience. We work eight to 10 hours a day while they vacation on our labor. There has to be a way to get these heartless people off their duffs and play fair. We could vote them out, but usually (so far) we have only got more of the same back in. It’s easy to swap the witch for the devil. DAVE CECIL Trinity

Staggered terms provide continuity of leadership As I brushed off the season’s first frost last week, I realized that the warm days of summer have gone and the blustery cold of winter is yet to come. But I am also reminded that in this autumn of soccer, football, street festivals and magnificent changes in leaf color, we are approaching a very important municipal election. Indeed, Election Day is Nov. 3, and each of us has the opportunity to vote. Thomasville has a healthy list of qualified candidates running for its City Council and mayoral positions. Their
philosophies have been identified, their signage is in place and the handshaking and letter-writing are under way. The citizens of Thomasville also have two referenda to consider. I write in support of Referendum 2, which allows for staggered terms of our City Council. A staggeredterm council will always have members who are familiar with the system of governance because there will always be someone on council who has a year or two of service experience. It is quite difficult to learn the nuances of all of the budgetary, legal and policy-making issues that are so important as a council member; the learning curve is significant,
and it typically takes a year or longer to learn “the ropes.” Staggered terms will allow council to focus more on the needs of the city rather than the needs of the next election. Staggered terms have worked quite effectively for our county commissioners since 1992. Even in years when new commissioners have been elected, the veteran members were able to provide strong leadership to keep the governing process moving forward. On Nov. 3, residents should vote for candidates of their choice. I urge them to vote Yes on Referendum 2. The Thomasville City Council deserves the strong continuity of leadership that staggered terms will ensure. E. THOMPSON SMITH JR. Thomasville

Oak Hollow Mall transition F continues
t’s a shame that consumers in High Point, a city of 100,000-plus residents, can’t or won’t adequately support a shopping mall. Transformation of Dillard’s department store at Oak Hollow Mall to a clearance center is just one more setback in attempts to keep what’s left of the shopping opportunities at the mall viable. Dillard’s was one of five anchors – along with Belk, Sears, J.C. Penney and the long-departed Goody’s – when the mall opened in 1995. Many of us have been hopeful that, with mall manager Vickee Armstrong working to alter the mix in use of space at Oak Hollow, there would be enough traffic with visitors spending enough money to stabilize shopping at those stores still operating at the 800,000-square-foot facility. It’s no secret to anyone who has walked through Oak Hollow Mall that is has struggled with an erosion of traditional tenants (The Gap and neighboring babyGap, Kirkland, Ben David Jewelers, Walden’s, Lane Bryant as examples). Trends in shopping have pushed and pulled many retail stores and restaurants that in past years would have been candidates to replace departed stores to trendy outdoor lifestyle centers. Also adding to Oak Hollow Mall’s woes is the fact that owner CBL & Associates listed the facility for sale (at prices estimated between $40 million and $45 million) in May of 2008 and that Green Street Advisors included it in a list of 84 “dead” malls across America last May. Green Street Advisors contends that any large, enclosed mall generating sales per square foot of $250 or less (U.S. average is $381) is in danger of failure. The switch of Dillard’s to a clearance center will make it even more difficult for Oak Hollow Mall to raise its sales per square foot figure significantly. We realize that High Point is not the only large community in North Carolina with a mall that’s struggling to stay alive, and that outdoor shopping centers are where the action appears to be these days. The rise in unemployment and what still is seen as a sluggish local economy haven’t helped matters. Still, it would be sad for High Point to lose what only 14 years ago was a shiny jewel in its crown. Without a strong show of support from the community, that’s what could happen – quickly.
The High Point Enterprise is committed to this community ... and always will serve it by being an intensely local newspaper of excellent quality every day.
or the last 10 days or so, the question has been asked many times, many ways by almost everyone that I have “run into.” The question rolls out of each person’s mouth a little differently but, basically, they asked, “How’s market?” I’ve often had the urge – when market activity starts to gain momentum the day or two before each semiannual session’s official opening, on opening day, five days after the opening day and in the days immediately following market – to respond, “Shucks, I don’t know. Nobody does.” That, probably, is the answer closest to the truth. Like anybody else who gets to observe, and more importantly, I suppose, ask questions of those who know or could know or should know about what goes on in the some 180 showroom buildings with 12 million square feet of showroom space primarily in downtown High Point, I try to evaluate market. Sometimes the question just rolls off the asker’s tongue (even my own) much the same way, “How are you?” or “How ya doin’?” does as you greet a passerby – those you know and those you don’t. We respond “Fine,” or “Very well,” or even “Better than I deserve.” But, with the question, some of us just can’t seem to shrug it off. We feel obligated to stop and go through, “Traffic isn’t what it was (last time or a just few years ago) but some showrooms are doing well (meaning they’re writing orders or at least enhancing relationships) and others not so well.” If the conversation lasts more than five or six sentences, one of the parties will say that they were in the Not-So-Busy showroom building and you could have fired a cannon, a machine gun or a shotgun – depending on the size of the building cited – “and you wouldn’t have hit anyone.” A statement counter to that usually comes as another of the parties boasts about the high traffic, high interest and perhaps even high-level of purchasing going on in the So-MuchBusier showroom building. Exhibitors engage in the same conversations, usually asking each “fresh” person who arrives in their showroom, “What do you hear?” which is just one of the versions of the question. The answer(s) to the question always depends on the persons to whom you talk about market. It seems everybody to whom you ask “How’s market?” holds a little bit, and some a whole lot, secret and/or tells you what they think you (depending on whom you are) want to
hear or don’t want to hear (again depending on whom you are), often in couched language. If there is one thing that I’ve learned well during the 40 markets that I have attended since arriving OPINION in High Point in 1990, it’s that each market is its own Tom being, different from all the Blount others. ■■■ One of the speakers told a story at the N.C. Furniture Export Council meeting Tuesday about baseball Hall of Famer Ty Cobb that helps me make a point about comparing one furniture market to another. Cobb had a lifetime batting average of .367, with 4,191 hits (297 of them triples), 2,245 runs scored, 12 batting titles, 23 straight seasons batting over .300 (three of them over .400 with a high of .420 in 1911). Shortly before his death in 1961, a reporter rattled off a list of top pitchers of the time (including Allie Reynolds, Vic Raschi, Ed Lopat, Whitey Ford, Warren Spahn, Lew Burdette, Sandy Koufax, Don Drysdale, Bob Lemon, Early Wynn and Billy Pierce) and asked Cobb how he would fare batting against them. Cobb replied he probably would hit .230 or .240. “Really?” the astonished reporter asked. He wondered aloud if the best pitchers of the 1950s were that much better than those against whom Cobb batted in 24 seasons during the first quarter of the 20th century. “Hey, I’m 75 years old and dying of cancer,” Cobb told the reporter. Comparing semiannual High Point Market sessions with each other these days and especially with those of the “good ol’ days” of the 1950s, 1970s and 1990s is just as foolhardy as trying to determine theoretically how well today’s baseball players would perform if matched against those who were stars during the first half of the 20th century – in the major leagues or the Negro leagues – with all of them in their primes. It can’t be done satisfactorily, even with computers. About the only way you truly can judge how well the market went last week is to observe home furnishings sales figures and who comes back for next spring’s and next fall’s markets. If sales increase and more people come to the spring market in a relatively good mood, then the fall 2009 market will have been a success.

COMMENTARY THE HIGH POINT ENTERPRISE SUNDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2009 www.hpe.com
Liberals We, as a state, as a people, are all on trial use racism F as a tool T
he Bush Administration ended over nine months ago, but the bashing never stopped. Now the targets are Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin, Michael Steele and any other conservative whose words have a chance of being heard. The names don’t really matter. The bashing was never about Bush, it was about the threat that liberals see in conservatism. There’s been much ado about Rush Limbaugh lately. Liberals want you to believe that Limbaugh is a racist. Liberals have been falling all over themselves to be first in line to attack Limbaugh. In the style of disgraced CBS News anchor Dan Rather, liberals at CNN, MSNBC and other news organizations zealously reported on racist statements allegedly made by Limbaugh. Yet they didn’t bother to verify if Limbaugh had actually made those statements. A CNN reporter has now publicly apologized, and MSNBC has admitted without apology (or integrity) that they couldn’t prove that the statements were ever made by Limbaugh. Related to this OPINION incident, talk radio host Warren Mike Ballantine, who Hughes is a black liberal, ■■■ appeared on Fox News’ The O’Reilly Factor. Ballantine became angry with Fox News commentator Juan Williams, who is also black and a fairly liberal Democrat, and said, “You can go back to the porch, Juan.” Ballantine was not the first liberal to make racist comments on the air directed at Williams. The next day, Williams hosted The O’Reilly Factor and had Rev. Ken Hutcherson as a guest. Hutcherson, who is black, said, “Rush and I are close friends. I don’t see him as a white man, he’s my friend. That overrides my political views.” This is how most Americans think of their friends. Referring to Ballantine, Hutcherson said we should not have to “put up with that kind of rhetoric from the other side who call themselves tolerant.” Hutcherson also made this very profound statement: “What they’re doing to Rush, it isn’t about Rush, this is about attacking conservative values in America.” Hutcherson is exactly right! This explains why some liberals make racist statements all the time and go unchallenged. It explains why liberals attack conservatives who have extramarital affairs, but then say “it’s only about sex” whenever a liberal does the same (or worse – i.e. Roman Polanski). It explains why liberals screamed about budget deficits under Bush, but are silent about massive deficits under Obama. It explains why liberal feminists remain silent while hypocritical fools like David Letterman attack conservative women like Sarah Palin. The truth is that many liberals don’t really care much about racism, marriage, budget deficits or women’s rights. These issues have become tools used by liberals to push their agenda, attack their opponents and create divisiveness. Liberals try to use conservatives in the same way that dictators and totalitarian regimes build power by demonizing certain groups of people. One major difference between liberals and conservatives is that liberals accept racism when it suits their needs, while conservatives do not. Liberals falsely accuse conservatives of racism all the time. Facts and reality are of no consequence for liberals. The success of this tactic relies entirely on the ignorance of the audience. Let’s hope most Americans are smarter than that. MIKE HUGHES is a Navy veteran who lives in Jamestown. His column appears here every other Sunday.

ormer Gov. Mike Easley is the subject of investigation by the State Board of Elections and a federal grand jury. The FBI lists government corruption as its fourth highest priority, just behind counterterrorism, espionage and cyber crime. North Carolina has had far too many public officials accused of wrongdoing in recent years, prompting the question whether people are more corrupt today than 40, 50 or 60 years ago or whether we just hear more about it? America in 1949 was a much different place than in 2009. We had just concluded World War II where people had agreed to rationing commodities, volunteered to fight or play some role in the war effort. Credit was tight to nonexistent, and you had to save up to make a major purchase. If a family member or neighbor
got sick or down on their luck everyone pitched in. People left their houses unlocked. We trusted our politicians, business MY SPIN and religious leaders and Tom educators to do Campbell the right thing ■■■ because it was the right thing. We are a different people today. For what are we willing to sacrifice? And in this selfcentered culture, how do we define the “common good?” The notion of thrift has, until the recent recession, faded into memory. Whom do we trust? We have more, want more and give less proportionately than in years past. We wink our eyes when a TV personality admits to preying on women in his of-
fice. His ratings go up. When a big name athlete or movie star gets caught doing something illegal or immoral it’s alright; we keep paying to see him play. When a bank exec earning millions of dollars lays off 1,000 workers because the economy is bad we sympathize. We don’t bat an eye when a politician admits to having an extramarital affair or accepts bribes and favors. If a public servant is known to have less than healthy relationships, we turn our heads because he keeps bringing home the bacon. We don’t trust much of anyone in authority but keep our heads down and our mouths shut because we are working hard to get ahead. We have become a culture obsessed with what’s in it for me. So why should we expect more from our public ser-
vants than we expect from the rest of our culture? We say politicians should be held to a higher standard because they are dealing with our tax dollars, but perhaps our standards for everyone are too low. Why do we accept greed to overtake capitalism, corruption to be tolerated in public service and moral standards to plummet? A former politician might be on the witness stand this week but we are all on trial for expecting and accepting less than honorable conduct in every facet of our lives. This is a time for self examination.

See you in court? Many factors will enter into whether Limbaugh should sue over comments
o sue or not to sue? That is the question. After racist statements were made up out of thin air and then attributed to Rush Limbaugh, these were the options he had. It is easy for me to understand that these are not simple choices because I have faced those options as well. Recently, there have been a number of columns made up by others and put on the Internet with my name on them. The things said in those bogus columns have OPINION nothing in common with Thomas anything that Sowell I have said, in ■■■ my columns, in my books or anywhere else. Years ago, CBS reporter Lem Tucker said in a broadcast on Oct. 13, 1981, that my views “seem to place him in the school that believes that maybe most blacks are genetically inferior to white people.” Anyone interested in the facts could have discovered that I had argued directly against this idea in a number of writings, including a feature article in the New York Times Magazine on March 27, 1977. An attorney I did not know, but who had read my writings and knew that what was insinuated in that broadcast was totally false, offered to represent me in a lawsuit against CBS. That was when I faced the kind of dilemma that Rush Limbaugh faces now.
When someone is considered to be a “public figure” – and Rush Limbaugh is certainly that – the Supreme Court has narrowed the grounds on which that public figure can sue for libel, to the point where even the most blatant lie can often go unpunished. Worse yet, there may be millions of people who never heard the original lie but who will hear it repeated in the media as a result of news stories about the lawsuit. And when those who committed character assassination are let off the hook on a technicality, they can claim “vindication,” as if what they said was true. The question facing any public figure who has been the target of character assassination in the media is: Is it worth investing a large amount of time in a process that can make you worse off by spreading the very lie that you are suing to stop? The down side of not suing
is that it allows the lie to continue to be repeated in the media, with later repetitions being justified in terms of “just reporting” what someone else said. No one can resolve this dilemma for someone else. My decision in 1981 was that I had too many other things to do for me to go into the exhausting and time-consuming process of suing CBS, with such dicey odds in the courts. Every situation is different, so whether Limbaugh should sue is a question that only he can answer. The question for the media to answer is: Are lies to go unchallenged when they are lies against someone you disagree with? Worse yet, are they to be excused, rationalized or even repeated? Already there are people on television saying that, although Rush didn’t actually say the things that have been attributed to him, he has said other things that they choose to call “racist.”
If those other things really are racist, why don’t they quote them, instead of something that was made up out of whole cloth? The Rush Limbaugh show has, after all, been broadcast for many years, three hours a day. There are thousands of hours of those broadcasts that people can go back through to look for things to quote. If critics can’t find anything racist in all that material, why should an outright lie about what the man said be given a pass? As the late Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan said, you are entitled to your own opinion but not to your own facts. Ultimately, this is not about Limbaugh or anybody else who is smeared with impunity. It is about the whole climate in which issues are discussed. Without a range of opposing opinions being available to the public, the basic concept of a self-governing democracy is a mockery. If views that some people don’t like can be silenced or discredited by character assassination, the whole country loses. The courts should not be the only line of defense. Common decency should be the first line of defense, so that people who smear others will pay a price in the outrage that their lies should provoke, even among decent people who do not agree with the target of their smears.

HPU, please help Wesleyan Garden residents BY KAYE SHAVER
igh Point University halted the sale of the government-subsidized apartment building in Wesleyan Homes to allow more time for the elderly to relocate. However, it was stated that the elderly in the Wesleyan Garden Apartments could still be turned over to HPU as scheduled. I understand they were not aware of the issues the elderly would have to confront. Let me help raise awareness. Please be aware that the elderly in the Wesleyan Garden Apartments will face the same issues as those in the subsidized housing. Has anyone considered there is nowhere for the elderly to go in High Point? It is hard for me to believe that HPU could expand the university at the expense of the elderly who will have no choice but will be forced
to leave with nowhere to go. Is this what we are teaching our future leaders? That it is OK to dispose of the elderly? HPU wants to build our city up, right? Not tear it down. Halting the sale gives me hope that someone wants to do the right thing. After a brutal attack, my mother found safe haven at Wesleyan Garden Apartments. After moving in, she told me she felt like she had come home. We felt like we were given a gift. We were amazed by this provision of grace after such a dark period in her life. I was so grateful for the ministry of the office staff, from the man who checked on the residents every day to the administrator who planned coffee breaks, sing-alongs, exercise sessions, etc. My mother came back to
life. Her friends began to visit weekly. She became active and happy. This September marked the one year anniversary in her new home. There is nowhere comparable to the Garden Apartments in price or service in High Point. As soon as I heard about the pending sale, I went to Providence Place and I was told there is a waiting list. The only other retirement center in High Point with independent living is three times the cost of the apartments at Wesleyan, which is out of reach for most of the residents. Some of them have already started moving into low-cost apartments, which are not built for the elderly. Some of them have plans to move in with family, completely giving up their independence. In the minds of the citizens of High Point, it looks as though the college kids are getting great arrangements
at the expense of the elderly. I am begging HPU to consider the needs of the elderly in the Garden Apartments as well as the subsidized housing. High Point University can make a difference. They have the opportunity to live up to their standard of excellence. Why couldn’t these apartments for the elderly be a volunteer community service for students? Teach students to value our most honored and fragile citizens. Please don’t discard them in a business transaction. HPU can make a difference and they seem to care, unlike the sellers in this situation. Providence Place should have been well-aware of the issues and had a transition plan in place, so I appeal to HPU. Please help build up our city, and please don’t destroy this valuable service to the elderly. KAYE SHAVER lives in Sophia.

State revokes alcohol license at Greensboro club MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE
GREENSBORO – Charges of underage drinking and allegations of violence at a Greensboro nightclub prompted state officials to revoke the business’s alcohol license Friday. The N.C. Alcohol Beverage Control Commission suspended the license for Music City, located at 7700 Boeing Drive, according to a news release. The move comes after a request by the Greensboro
Police Department and from agents with the Alcohol Law Enforcement District VI. “The ABC Commission is exercising its authority and duty to work with law enforcement to protect the community in matters related to alcoholic beverages,” said Jon Williams, ABC Chairman, who signed the suspension order. “We have received sworn statements from law enforcement officers alleging a shooting, a stabbing, several instances of gunfire and underage drinking violations.”

A road less traveled? DOT project is still in the works despite Dell closing MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE
WINSTON-SALEM — When officials from Dell Inc. looked over a site in southeastern Forsyth County for a computer-assembly plant in 2004, they were worried about highway access. They wanted Union Cross Road widened from two to four lanes. They wanted a separate access road for trucks entering or leaving the plant. The N.C. Department of Transportation widened
Union Cross from two to three lanes, and built Dell Boulevard to give the company access for its trucks. The DOT widened Temple School Road to four lanes in between Union Cross Road and the Dell plant. Highway officials also developed a now $53 million plan to make Union Cross Road a divided highway, with four lanes between Interstate 40 and Wallburg Road, and six lanes from I-40 north to Sedge Garden Road. Even though Dell said earlier this month that it
will close the plant early next year, DOT officials say they are moving ahead with the Union Cross Road plans. They say that present and future traffic needs justify the expense. “This project is scheduled to be completed in 2015,” said Pat Ivey, the DOT division engineer for the highway division that includes Forsyth County. “Certainly by that point the economy will be picking up again, and we feel that the four lanes will be needed by that time. The project was justified because of existing traffic and proposed developments. We do not see that changing.” The estimated cost of
the widening includes $43 million for construction and $10 million to buy right of way, a process that is taking place now. Ivey said that the state plans to award construction contracts in December 2011. The state’s plan to stick with the widening is drawing fire from David Hartgen of the John Locke Foundation, a conservative organization in Raleigh that sees part of its mission as rooting out wasteful government spending. “The modeling for these projects is circular,” said Hartgen, a professor emeritus at UNC Charlotte. “The model assumes the
development and the development is used to see if the road is needed.” Hartgen said he hasn’t seen or studied the road and thus can’t say whether it should be widened. But he did say he believes that the need for the widening should be reviewed again. What the state lacks, he said, is a way to compare projects with each other to see which is needed most, and a way to deal with 180degree turns, such as Dell closing its Forsyth County plant. Ivey said that state transportation officials are working on a better way to establish priorities for road needs.

Joel Mills is the CEO of Advanced Home Care. driven by taking care of all of the needs of patients under one roof,” he said. Many hospitals had their own home health care agencies at that time, but Mills soon showed them that his company could take care of their medical equipment needs and home health services as well. Advanced Home Care eventually spread to 12 health systems in North Carolina before branching out of state. Now headquartered in High Point, the company has 27 locations throughout North Carolina, Virginia and Tennessee. It services 20,000 patients through its 27 locations every day. Its most recent merger included the acquisition of Home Oxygen Services in
Lexington, Va. The company announced the agency will expand the services offered by Home Oxygen Services to include a full line of home medical equipment, respiratory therapy and pharmacy services. Mills said the addition was an appropriate gain for the company, given its surrounding locations in Virginia. “We have a planned growth strategy to be able to integrate one to two companies per year purchased outside of the organizations,” he said. “We plan to continue in the future, and we have a couple of potential acquisitions in the pipeline.” email@example.com | 888-3617

HIGH POINT – Joel Mills knows what it’s like to work his way from the bottom to the top of a successful company. In 1988, the now-CEO of Advanced Home Care began working as a delivery driver that transported durable medical equipment for the business. “I had the opportunity to learn from people and had mentors to help me grow within the business,” Mills said. “That’s really what I’m trying to do here. I’m trying to grow the business so others will have the opportunity to do what I did.” Since working his way up through most every position in the health care agency and becoming CEO in 1993, he has grown his company into the largest home health care agency in the state. Originally created by High Point Regional Health System, Moses Cone Hospital and Wesley Long Community Hospital, the agency was designed to deliver durable medical equipment to a patient’s home. When Mills took over, he combined the home health aspect to the company so that patients could receive the equipment and the nursing services or occupational therapy at their homes as well. “Combined, it just made sense. There was a lot of synergy that could be

software after the year of release, like a car, and we got Windows 95. That was followed by 98, while professional users got 4.0. But Windows 2000 wasn’t for consumers at all — the professional version was now named for its vintage as well.

Hulu, the free online video site where television shows and movies can be watched in their entirety, will start charging fees at some point, one of its owners said. Hulu has struggled to make money despite its popularity as an ad-supported site. News Corp., which co-owns the site with NBC Universal, Walt Disney Co. and Providence Equity Partners, said it hasn’t decided what form the subscription model would take. Chase Carey, News Corp.’s president and chief operating officer, said at a conference in New York on Wednesday that subscription fees could come as early as 2010. News Corp. Chairman Rupert Murdoch said last month that the company was considering charging for Hulu, but hadn’t made a final decision. “Are we looking at it with a view of adding subscription services in there and pay-per-view movies? Yes, we are looking at that. No decision has been taken yet,” Murdoch said.

Analysts: More growth ahead for Amazon SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – Low prices, solid customer service and an increasing willingness by consumers to spend on discretionary items contributed to Amazon.com Inc.’s solid third quarter, and the growth should continue despite weakness elsewhere in retail. Amazon shares soared to an all-time high Friday after the Seattle-based online retailer stunned analysts and investors by reporting that third-quarter net income grew 68 percent – a clear sign that consumers are spending on Amazon, even though the economy is still stuttering. “I think people are finding they want to start purchasing again,” Bernstein Research analyst Jeffrey Lindsay said Friday. “There’s pent-up demand for this stuff, and the lion’s share is going to Amazon these days.” Lindsay attributes growth partly to the demographics of Amazon’s customer base, which he believes has more money than the average U.S. consumer to spend on nonessentials like books and video games.

An Amazon.com employee grabs boxes to be loaded onto a truck at the company’s Fernley, Nev., warehouse. He added that the company has earned trust among buyers, who know that Amazon will work to fix any problems, regardless of whether an item was bought from Amazon directly or from partner retailers that sell through Amazon’s Web site and often fulfill the orders themselves. Kaufman Bros. analyst Aaron Kessler believes
that Amazon also benefited from consumers buying more expensive items during the quarter. He noted that Amazon’s revenue grew much faster than the number of items sold. Amazon does not indicate how many items it sells each quarter, but it releases the percentage growth – 32 percent yearover-year in the most recent quarter, compared
with 28 percent in the second quarter. Revenue, meanwhile, gained 28 percent year-over-year to $5.45 billion in the most recent quarter, compared with a 14 percent climb in the prior quarter. Amazon said Thursday that it earned $199 million, or 45 cents per share, in the third quarter, far surpassing Wall Street expectations.

Burton puts focus on job training programs, recruitment ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT
THOMASVILLE — George Burton is seeking re-election to the Thomasville City Council. He attended public schools in Cleveland, Ohio, graduating from East Technical High School. He also attended John Hay Vocational Business School, John Carroll University and Davidson County Community College. He is semi-retired as a sales and leasing consultant at Crescent Ford/Lincoln Mercury. He also has served on the Thomasville and the High Point police departments. He and his wife, the former Mattie Louise Font, have two children and two grandchildren. He is an 18-year incumbent on the City Council and has been active in several community organizations, including the Thomasville Jaycees, the Lions Club, Optimist Club and Thomasville Human Relations Commission. He also has been involved
with Davidson Pride No. 157 Masonic Lodge and the N.C. Shriners. He is Burton a member and deacon with Friendship Missionary Baptist Church. 1. Do you support or object to the referendum issue to shift from two-to-four year municipal government terms and why? I support the referendum because I believe that staggered terms is in the best interest for the City Council members, because it provides continuity in service and experienced council members to continue to serve on the board when an election is held. Usually it would take a new council member two years to be educated, learn the process, obtain knowledge of projects, the budget process, workshops and the role of a City Council
member. A new council member needs more time in order to implement certain ideas, plans and projects. We need some experienced council members on the board to follow up and to follow through on these items.
body of our city to adopt a reform. I highly support voluntary annexation for our city.
2. What role, if any, should Thomasville play in the effort to reform the way that involuntary annexation is handled in North Carolina?
Jobs are now a top priority for the city of Thomasville because of the unemployment rate here. I would work more closely with the chamber of commerce, the economic development commission and our local community college to help train the individuals in order to certify worker skills required for most jobs. We should work very closely with local agencies such as the JobLink Career Centers and job training and employment centers in our area in order to assist the citizens in finding a job. We should focus hard on economic development, recruiting more industries and businesses which would bring more jobs to our city.
I think we should always abide by and follow the state laws and guidelines on annexation. There is no need for a reform here, because most cities now do not want to be forced into annexation. However, if a reform is needed here, it should be at the state level, etc. Thomasville does not have a role to play, but we should follow the N.C. General Statutes on annexation agreements and the contents of agreement procedures, etc., and not by the governing

• NewBridge Bancorp, the parent company of NewBridge Bank, recently announced plans to invest in excess of $5 million in four new offices in Lexington, Thomasville, Greensboro and Forsyth County. The addition of these four locations is part of a larger plan to restructure operations in the Piedmont by closing or consolidating seven existing bank locations while opening four new offices. In Thomasville, NewBridge Bank has under construction a new office on Randolph Street, next door to its current office. Upon completion of the new office, scheduled for spring 2010, the bank will close the existing bank location and donate the building to the Thomasville Area Chamber of Commerce. In Lexington, NewBridge Bank has land under contract at Cotton Grove Road and Lowes Boulevard, where the bank plans to build a fullservice office. The new office will be equipped with multiple drive-thru lanes. Service to clients at the Talbert, Westside and existing South Lexington bank locations will be consolidated at the new office and additional nine offices throughout Davidson County. The Talbert and Westside offices will close in early 2010, while the existing South Lexington location will remain open until the new office is complete. • The Better Business Bureau of Central North Carolina honored four local companies earlier this month for their business ethics.

Collaborate beyond productivity to profitability BY MILDRED L. CULP WORKWISE FEATURES
Rodd Wagner and Gale Muller’s book, “Power of 2,” makes the case for improved job satisfaction and engagement in partnerships involving two people (Gallup, forthcoming, November, 2009). “In the workplace,” the authors write, “those with just one collaborative relationship are 29 percent more likely to say they will stay with their company for the next year and 42 percent more likely to intend to remain with their current employer for their entire career.” Five to ten “good alliances” signals engagement and happiness, Wagner and Muller find. However, 16 percent of people claim no work partnership at all, while 25 percent report that they’ve never had one. These statistics were gleaned from an online survey of 1,086 Gallup Panel members. “Power of 2” states that work needs to be done on “correlat(ing)... strong workplace partnerships and productivity.” But consider the players in forming partnerships. Laurent Duperval, president of Duperval Consulting Inc., a leadership consultancy in Montreal, has observed pair programming among employees, where “two developers use one computer simultaneously to program the same piece of code.” Effective partnering reduces coding errors and accelerates learning among novices. But Laurent

says that not everyone is satisfied, because “uber-geeks, used to doing everything on their own, can get frustrated if they have to work with someone who is slower or uses a different method.” Could this be because the organization, not the individuals, sets the partnerships? Kathleen Ryan of Issaquah, Wash.’s The Orion Partnership OD consultancy, has noted a direct correlation between
partnerships and productivity, “where innovation and breakthrough are important... (and) when people set out to accomplish something tangible.” These range from removing waste in a system to building a library or developing a product.
isn’t profitability the main objective in strong workplace partnerships? Without profitability, there is no company, let alone employee engagement or productivity. Are we forgetting to correlate people, productivity and profitability to sales? Only the largest workplaces have the luxury of not linking PROFITABILITY Is collaboration less real or productivity and profitability. useful if it doesn’t produce a Why aren’t companies quantidollar sign? Maybe not. But fying results from top to bottom
so that employees expect to contribute with awareness? Matthew O’Dowd, in charge of business development at New York City’s On Tour Advertising L.L.C., a cross-promotion and mobile marketing company for bands, correlates productivity with revenue generation, which ultimately leads to profitability. To meet the needs of one client, his organization teamed with TheLuxurySpot.com Inc., and generated $200,000. Is this an alliance between two companies or a strong workplace partnership between two of their people? Trust is essential in collaborative partnerships, according to “Power of 2.” O’Dowd enjoys his trust with Bryce Gruber, founder and CEO of TheLuxurySpot.com. The partnership that grew out of a cordial business alliance is real, with no formal agreement: “It’s just two friends and colleagues who can help each other out when the right opportunities come up,” O’Dowd observes. Still, O’Dowd, unlike authors Wagner and Muller, finds “trust in working relationships a luxury, not a necessity. It’s a rare pleasure to work with someone who can be trusted completely. Partnering with people who can’t be completely trusted is an inevitable fact of business.” DR. MILDRED L. CULP, Workwise Features, is an award-winning journalist.
