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. BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

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-

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.”

Cancer families get special attention


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.

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.

Shelton says 4-year terms would better serve residents THOMASVILLE – 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.

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) – 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 Abbas’

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. “When we didn’t reach national reconciliation, we returned to the constitution and the law,� Abbas told the Palestine Liberation Organization’s central council in Ramallah.

Pam Anderson launches anti-seal hunt campaign



Michelle Obama’s gripe: President’s tennis game BURBANK, Calif. (AP) – What’s President Barack Obama’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 it’s his tennis game. When they play, the president usually wins. “He beats me quite often,� she said on NBCM. Obama TV’s “The Jay Leno Show,� appearing via satellite hookup from the White House. “That gets to be pretty annoying.� The show was taped for airing later Friday evening. In a brief skit, Leno pushed her to talk about her husband’s flaws. At first, she sarcastically said he has none. “He’s perfect,� she quipped. Then she let it out: It’s their battles on the tennis court that get her peeved. It also looks like Bo – the Obamas’ dog – is living like a king. The first lady said the presidential pooch celebrated his first birthday earlier this month with a Rose Garden party. Bo, a Portuguese water dog, feasted on a cake shaped like a dog house that was made out of veal.

We all oppose the massacre of baby seals. It’s time to end Canada’s shameful slaughter.� Outside the Ontario legislature building, the 52-year-old Anderson cuddled a seal mascot and told supporters that she wanted to prevent the “barbaric massacre� of seals. “When I travel all over the world, the Canadian seal hunt is a huge issue that people talk to me about,� she said.

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.

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.

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.

She is past president of the Old North State Medical Society and serves on the board of directors of the National Medical Association.


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.

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. 888-3657

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very excited, not for me, but for what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to do for the state,â&#x20AC;? Hunt, 72, said in an interview. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll do great things here for the economy, education and the environment.â&#x20AC;? The library ground breaking came on the 25th anniversary of the Centennial Campus, which was founded during Huntâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x153;for a higher and better cause,â&#x20AC;? he said â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a new college campus where students and researchers would work closely with the companies that would benefit from their expertise. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People called it a pipe dream,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s working, even better than we ever imagined.â&#x20AC;?

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&#x20AC;&#x153;Without Jim Hunt,

thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no Centennial Campus,â&#x20AC;? Woodward said. The construction of the Hunt library â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 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&#x20AC;&#x153;my hero, Jim Hunt, the greatest governor this state has ever had. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a 21st century library for a 21st century campus.â&#x20AC;?

Celebrates National

BREAST CANCER Awareness Month

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Breast 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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x153;picture tubeâ&#x20AC;?. 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&#x20AC;?

‘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.

LEONARD PITTS: At what cost is fame achievable? TOMORROW

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


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



What should President Obama do in Afghanistan – more troops or phased reductions? E-mail comments (30 words or less) to (no name, address required). Here is one response: • Politicians create wars, spend billions of taxpayers’ money, forbid troops to wipe out targets because politicians state it’s inhuman. Bring troops home. This isn’t war, it’s politics as usual.

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.

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. To comment, visit and click on local commentary.

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.



Former delivery man drives his way to the top



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.” | 888-3617


Occupation: CEO of Advanced Home Care Education: MBA from Duke University About the company: Advanced Home Care is headquartered in High Point and serves 20,000 patients every day in its 27 locations throughout North Carolina, Virginia and Tennessee. Beginnings: After majoring in history as an undergraduate student, Mills got a job as a delivery driver for Advanced Home Care, where he worked his way up to the top of the company. Community involvement: The company raised $18,000 for the United Way of Greater High Point’s 2009 campaign. Why his company is successful: “We put patients first and we make good business decisions.” Best business advice: “Have a strategic plan for your company for the next 10 years.”

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



a little confusing. It’s easy to get the impression that with every new version of Windows, Microsoft wants us to forget that there was a previous one. Long ago, we had Windows 1, 2 and 3. So far, so good. Then Microsoft started naming its consumer

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.

The new millennium raised an obstacle to the year-numbering scheme. Microsoft balked at naming its new system “01.” So the new Windows became “XP,” a not entirely self-evident contraction of “experience.” There didn’t seem to be


any other two-letter combination handy to capture Microsoft’s goals for the next Windows, so it became “Vista.” Vista bombed, prompting Microsoft to make another clean break — the third one — and give us Windows 7.

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 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 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

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 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 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.

LOOMING CATFIGHT: Bobcats eye Tigers in key Piedmont Triad 4A clash. 4D

Blue Devils stop Terps DURHAM (AP) – Thaddeus Lewis has been carrying Duke lately. This time, it was the defense’s turn to bail out the Blue Devils. Lewis threw for 371 yards and two touchdowns and Duke forced two late turnovers to wrap up a 17-13 victory over Maryland on Saturday. The Atlantic Coast Conference’s leading passer was 30 of 43 with touchdowns covering 24 yards to Donovan Varner and 1 yard to Danny Parker in his third straight 300-yard performance for the Blue Devils (4-3, 2-1). Duke never trailed, outgained Maryland 394-249, withstood the Terrapins’ late charges and held on for the Blue Devils’ third win in four games. They also claimed consecutive conference victories for the first time since 1994. “It isn’t about picking them up – we know we’re going to face adversity at times during the game, but it’s just about rebounding,

We get their back. It’s about being a team.” More than one-fourth of Maryland’s offense came on one play – Chris Turner’s 67-yard touchdown pass to Davin Meggett. Turner was 16 of 23 for 182 yards and moved past Boomer Esiason into second place on the school’s career passing list. But Turner couldn’t keep the Terps (2-6, 1-3) from losing their third straight game and fifth in the past six. “It just seems like no matter how hard we try, we can’t seem to break through,” Maryland coach Ralph Friedgen said. AP Still, the Terrapins gave themConner Vernon (left) and Duke cel- selves some chances in the fourth ebrate a 17-13 victory over Mary- quarter before the ACC’s most land on Saturday at soggy Wallace turnover-prone team had probWade Stadium. lems keeping hold of the ball.

to Ronnie Tyler was intercepted by Vincent Rey. Duke ran some clock before punting with just less than 2 minutes left, but Tony Logan fumbled and Brandon King recovered to seal it. Both teams kept the ball in the air despite rainy conditions – Maryland was held to 67 yards rushing, the fourth time in five games that the Terps failed to crack triple digits as a team, and Duke finished with just 23. For Duke, it was a rare matchup with an ACC rival it hadn’t beaten in a decade, and an even rarer position – as a 4-point favorite. The expanded conference’s rotating, divisional schedule kept Maryland off the Duke schedule since 2004. With representatives of the Champs Sports and Chick-fil-A bowls looking on, Lewis picked up where he left off two weeks ago when he threw for a career-high 459 yards and five touchdowns in a 49-28 victory over N.C. State.

Cline sparks ASU BOONE (AP) – Armanti Edwards threw three touchdowns and Devon Moore rushed for three to lead Appalachian State in a 52-16 rout of Georgia Southern on Saturday. Glenn High’s Matt Cline caught 10 passes for 102 yards. His 35-yard TD catch opened the scoring for the Mountaineers. Cline Edwards was 26-for34 with 320 yards and rushed for 39 yards for the Mountaineers (5-2, 4-0 Southern Conference). Travaris Cadet rushed for 131 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries. The score was tied 77 midway through the opening quarter, but Appalachian State outscored the Eagles (4-4, 32) 35-3 until early in the third, capping the spree on Moore’s 10-yard scamper for a 42-10 lead. Georgia Southern defensive back Hudson Presume was taken to Watauga Medical Center in Boone after injuring his neck on the same play in which he forced a fumble. He was later released to travel home with the team after regaining full movement and his tests came back negative.

Washington Redskins left tackle Chris Samuels said he will need a couple of months before deciding whether he can play again. The six-time Pro Bowl lineman released a statement late Friday night that essentially rules himself out for the rest of the season, even as he contemplates retirement because of a serious neck injury. Samuels was injured when he banged heads with a defensive player while blocking early in the first quarter of Washington’s loss to Carolina two weeks ago.




Wake Forest quarterback Riley Skinner (11) loses his helmet as he is tackled by Navy linebacker Clint Sovie during Saturday’s game in Annapolis, Md. The Midshipmen grabbed a 13-10 victory.

Proctor, Navy slosh past Wake ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) – Backup quarterback Kriss Proctor ran 40 yards for a third-quarter touchdown, and Navy beat Wake Forest 13-10 in a driving rain Saturday for its fifth straight victory. Subbing for injured Ricky Dobbs (left knee), Proctor carried 23 times for 89 yards in his first college start. Coming in, Proctor’s lone experience over two seasons was playing the mop-up role in a 63-14 win over Rice. The Midshipmen (6-2) did not throw a pass. Last year, against SMU in similar conditions, Navy became the first FBS team since Ohio in 1997 not to attempt a single throw. Fullback Vince Murray ran for a career-high 175 yards – his second straight 100-yard game – and Joe Buckley kicked two field goals for the Midshipmen, whose winning

streak is their longest since a 5-0 start in 2004. Riley Skinner went 13 of 25 for 173 yards for Wake Forest (4-4). His 15-yard touchdown throw to Devon Brown made it 13-10 with 7:41 left, but the Demon Deacons got only one more first down the rest of the way. The game was a rematch of the 2008 EagleBank Bowl, in which Skinner went 11 for 11 in leading Wake Forest to a 29-19 victory. Although Wake Forest plays in the Atlantic Coast Conference and Navy is an independent, the teams have met four times over the past three seasons. Skinner was perfect against Navy back in December, but in this one he ran into a determined Navy defense and a rain that at times was torrential. Proctor’s fourth career touch-

down – he scored three against Rice – followed five straight bursts up the middle by Murray and made it 13-3. Navy then held on downs, and the Midshipmen moved to the Wake Forest 2 before Proctor lost a fumble after being hit by linebacker Matt Woodlief. But the Midshipmen held on. Limited to a field goal in a 38-3 loss to Clemson one week earlier, Wake Forest continued its offensive struggles during a first half that ended with Navy ahead 6-3. With the wind at his back, Buckley kicked a career-long 50-yard field goal for a 3-0 lead. The Deacons answered early in the second quarter with a 40-yard field goal by Jimmy Newman. Navy used a 35-yard run by Murray to set up a 41-yard field goal by Buckley.





few points to ponder while waiting for Halloween Night to give me an excuse to slip into my Elvis jumpsuit one more time: •We’ve hit Week 7 of the NFL regular season and four teams own undefeated records. Minnesota and Denver stand 6-0, while Indianapolis and New Orleans are 5-0. The Vikings face the toughest test today at Pittsburgh, while the Colts figure to breeze at woeful St. Louis. New Orleans should be in for a battle at improved Miami. But whatever else happens, we’re guaranteed at least one NFL unbeaten entering

Week 8. Denver enjoys an open date. Let me go on record now and say the ‘72 Miami Dolphins have nothing to worry about. None of the remaining unbeatens is a threat to run the table. •It’s the most unmistakable sign yet that ACC basketball season is just around the corner. All of the league’s head coaches and at least one player from every team will gather in Greensboro today for Operation ACC Basketball. Our Steve Hanf will be there and don’t miss his coverage in Monday’s edition. I always enjoyed Operation ACC Bas-

ketball. There’s just something magical about so much basketball talk in one setting. Some of my favorite coaches to talk with included former Wake Forest boss Dave Odom, Georgia Tech legend Bobby Cremins and ex-Virginia head man Pete Gillen. All three combined humor and patience with the best. And believe me, once you hit hour eight of the marathon interview sessions, humor and patience are a must for survival.

Johnson keeps Martinsville confidence BY GREER SMITH ENTERPRISE SPORTS WRITER

MARTINSVILLE, Va. – Even though Jimmie Johnson qualified 15th for today’s 500-lapper, he wasn’t discouraged from thinking he can do the same thing he’s done in five of the past six races at Martinsville Speedway. That would be finding his way to victory lane. “My own personal goal is to win the race,” Johnson said. If he doesn’t, Johnson says he will leave satisfied if he adds to his spread over Hendrick Motorsports teammates

Mark Martin and Jeff Gordon in the Chase for the Championship standings. Johnson leads Martin by 90 points and Gordon trails by 135 with five races to go. “The other answer would be to finish ahead of the No. 5 (Martin) and the No. 24 (Gordon),” Johnson said. “Whatever it takes to do that will be pretty good. We’ll just see what happens. If I can get my first goal, that means I beat the 5 and 24.” Johnson starts at a decided disadvantage. Gordon, a seven-time Martinsville winner, starts in the front row beside pole winner Ryan Newman. Martin is in the second row beside Martin Truex Jr.

At least two things are working against Johnson in his effort to repeat, even though he is confident that he can cut through traffic. The poor qualifying effort means he will have a pit stall which could result in him getting caught in a traffic jam on Martinsville’s tight pit road. The other negative is the first use of double-file restarts heading into the .526-mile track’s tight corners, which will increase the possibility of wrecks. “We’re going to be in a bad situation (with the pit stall), but I know how good the car is going to be,” Johnson said. “There’s going to be tests throughout

the championship. This is one of them. I think this speaks to what we’ve been saying all along that this thing is far from over.” As far as the restarts, Truex believes those in the outside line will be at a great disadvantage to those who can stay in the preferred bottom lane in the turns. “Anytime you’re on the outside, it’s tough,” Truex said. “You’ll just have to wait until you can get back in line. There’s nothing you can do. You can’t force your way into the inside, because if there is no hole, you’ll spin yourself out.” | 888-3519

Peters races to Martinsville Trucks victory

Martin remains sentimental Chase favorite don’t want to disappoint them. That is that. It means a lot.” During the early SPORTS parts of the season, Greer Martin, Smith the eternal ■■■ pessimist, tried to head off any talk about competing for the championship. He repeatedly said that he was just happy that car owner Rick Hendrick wanted him to drive the No. 5 Chevrolet. Martin said he was pleased that Hendrick gave him a chance to come back from part-time status. He overcame a horrible start to earn a berth in the Chase for the Championship. He more than showed he is capable as a driver by winning five races, which was the most in the series until Johnson won three of the last five to boost his total to six. Four of Martin’s wins earned him the top seed in the playoff, and the fifth one came in the Chase opener at New Hampshire. Entering today’s 500 at Martinsville Speedway, he sits 90 points behind Johnson, who appears to be in the same groove that produced championships the past three seasons.


Mark Martin relaxes prior to qualifying for The Tums 500 Sprint Cup race at Martinsville Speedway on Friday. Martin starts fourth in today’s 500-lapper. Martin doesn’t shy away from talk of being in championship contention anymore. But, he refrains from giving a definitive answer on what his title chances are heading into the sixth race in the Chase. That’s understandable with Talladega and its prospect of wrecks that could affect a number of contenders on the horizon next week. “I said I would have a clearer picture of the championship after six races,” Martin said. “This will be number six. As I analyze closer, I think it will be clearer after seven races. It’s really going to require Talladega to see how it shuffles out.” Martin’s been in championship contention this late in the season three times, all before the implementation of the 10-race Chase. In 1990, he lost the championship to Dale Earn-

Keselowski holds off Busch to post Nationwide Series win at Memphis MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) – Brad Keselowski held off points leader Kyle Busch on the final lap to win the Kroger On Track For the Cure 250 in a green-whitechecker finish in Saturday’s Nationwide Series race at Memphis Motorsports Park. Keselowski was leading when a caution came out with two laps to go because Stephen Wallace spun after tangling with Matt Kenseth. Wallace banged into Kenseth’s car after the race

and the two had words on pit road. Keselowski held onto the lead through the overtime segment. Busch finished second and leads Carl Edwards by 215 points in the standings. Busch was on Keselowski’s rear bumper coming out of the final turn. Keselowski got loose but held on for his fourth Nationwide win of the year. Jason Leffler finished third, while Mike Bliss and Brendan Gaughan completed the top five. Edwards was sixth.

Chanticleers drop Panthers CASH FOR GOLD

CONWAY, S.C. - The High Point University volleyball team fell 25-19, 25-20, 25-23 to Coastal Carolina on Saturday at Kimbel Arena. The Panthers improved every set, even leading late in the third but couldn’t hold off the Chanticleers. Sophomore setter Holly Fong put up 29 assists and distributed the ball to five different HPU attackers. Megan Kaminskas, Megan Smith and Stephanie Wallin each totaled seven kills in the match while Anna Lott added six and Courtney Johnk put down

five kills. Kaminskas also had five blocks in the match. HPU (13-13, 3-7 BSC) begins a five-game homestand Wednesday when the Panthers host Radford at 7 p.m. HPU dropped the first set 25-19. The Panthers trailed early in the second set. Coastal Carolina jumped to a 14-6 lead and took the set 25-20. HPU took its first lead of the match in the third set at 11-10 on an attack error by the Chants. HPU would extend the lead by as much as five at 21-16 on a kill by Smith but CCU rallied to secure the win.




hardt by 26 points, less than the number of points that were taken away because a carburetor space plate wasn’t attached as prescribed by rules at the second race of the season, a violation found after a Martin win. In 1997, he came in third but finished just 29 points behind champion Jeff Gordon. In 2002 he was a close second again, losing to Tony Stewart by 38 points. Johnson isn’t so sentimental over the prospect of his teammate getting a title at his expense. “I’m just going out there doing my job and worrying about myself,” Johnson said. “If I’m the spoiler, then I’m going to be very proud of being the spoiler because I’ve earned it, and I’ve had to beat the best in the business. That’s the way I’m looking at it. “Mark is a great teammate. But we still have

races to go and anything can happen.” Martin claims that he will carry the fight to Johnson. But, don’t expect Martin to vary much out of his clean driving persona. “I’m going to race him for it,” Martin said. “I am not going to give up one bit. But if I go out there and get ugly, it might cost me the championship. “I am racing him with everything I’ve got, and if I could find a way to be better I would. All I can do is put it out there, I will put it out there with every bit of fire and just because I don’t cause a stink doesn’t mean I don’t have fire. You ask somebody that’s raced me this year. I race with everything I’ve got.” Perhaps that’s another reason he’s the sentimental favorite. | 888-3519

erhaps it is the backlash against the fellow perceived as being too successful too much of the time. Perhaps it is sympathy for a 50-year-old taking one last shot at the apple. Perhaps it stems from the fact that the 50-year-old has never won a championship. Perhaps it is because the 50-year-old is regarded as one of the nice guys in big-time stock-car racing, a guy who will pull over and let a faster car pass in the early parts of a race, just like a guy getting out of the fast lane on the interstate. Whatever the reason, Mark Martin in some circles outside of the garage area is the sentimental favorite to win the Cup championship at a time where the anti-Jimmie Johnson sentiment continues to bubble and ferment more rapidly with each of his wins. Johnson is also a nice guy. But continuous success will earn you boos from those who are not in your cheering section and from those who think you are taking all the excitement out of the Chase for the Championship format. “That is an incredible honor,” Martin said of the apparent fan support. “It also adds a little bit of pressure. It means so much that they feel that way that I desperately

MARTINSVILLE, Va. (AP) – Timothy Peters took the lead when Denny Hamlin pitted on the 117th lap Saturday and won the NASCAR truck series race at Martinsville Speedway. It is the first career victory for Peters, who lives in Danville. “It’s awesome. Words can’t describe what I’m feeling right now,” Peters said after being doused with frigid water in victory lane by points leader Ron Hornaday Jr. and others. Peters stopped once in the 200-lap race, after just 33 laps, and led the final 84 laps, holding off Todd Bodine over three restarts to cruise to the win by 1.815 seconds. The biggest question at the end was whether he would have enough fuel. In the spring, Peters was running fifth at Martinsville with eight laps remaining when he ran out of gas, and crew chief Chad Hedrick found it difficult not to fret until the end. The victory came in Peters’ 64th career start in the series. “I wanted to race today really bad because I knew in race trim we had a really good truck,” he said. “The last time I’ve been in a victory lane was ’05, and it was here.” That win came in a late model race. Hornaday finished fourth and extended his lead to 224 points over Matt Crafton with four races remaining. Hornaday is seeking his record fourth championship in the series. Bodine finished second, followed by Colin Braun. Kevin Harvick was fifth.



Saints try to stay unbeaten at Miami BY BARRY WILNER AP FOOTBALL WRITER

Never in the post-merger era has the NFL had four unbeaten teams this deep into a season. One of those, the Denver Broncos, will remain spotless into November because they are off this weekend. The Colts almost have another bye â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they visit winless St. Louis. New Orleans and Minnesota have much bigger challenges, with the Vikings headed for Heinz Field to play the surging Steelers, and the Saints stopping just short of South Beach at Land Shark Stadium to face the Dolphins. New Orleans (5-0) looked so good in handing the Giants their first defeat that the folks on the Bayou already are talking about another trip to Miami â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for the Super Bowl in February. Whoa, now. Hold on. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to go 16 weeks the same way that some of our games have unfolded,â&#x20AC;? Saints coach Sean Payton said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just have to keep working to get better.â&#x20AC;? New Orleans has had some blemishes, but the defense is vastly improved, ranking ninth overall, and the offense, led by Drew Brees, Marques Colston, Jeremy Shockey and a bevy of running backs, has been unstoppable. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important is ... looking closely at yourself without dusting it under the rug,â&#x20AC;? Payton said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We try to be critical of ourselves and pay close attention to what wins.â&#x20AC;? What has won the last two games for Miami after an 0-3 start has been defense and the wildcat. The variation on the old single wing was run to perfection by Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams in a victory over the Jets before the Dolphins had a bye. So Miami will want to control the clock and keep Brees and his menacing minions off the field. Elsewhere today, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s New England vs. Tampa Bay in the annual game at Wembley Stadium in London; Atlanta at Dallas; Chicago at Cincinnati; Arizona at the New York Giants; San Francisco at Houston; San Diego at Kansas City; Green Bay at Cleveland; Buffalo at Carolina; and New York Jets at Oakland. Philadelphia is at Washington on Monday night. Besides Denver, five other teams have byes: Seattle, Detroit, Jacksonville, Baltimore, Tennessee.


ATLANTA (4-1) AT DALLAS (3-2) This could be one entertaining shootout, judging by the work of Atlantaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Roddy White (8 catches, 210 yards, 2 TDs) and Dallasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Miles Austin (10, 250, 2) in their last games. If the Cowboys are going to contend, they need to straighten out now. The two best teams they played, the Giants and Broncos, beat them with key plays down the stretch. Atlanta is at the same level as New York and Denver. The Falcons get division-leading New Orleans in their next game, so they need to keep a level head here.

CHICAGO (3-2) AT CINCINNATI (4-2) Both teams were exposed last weekend, the Bears at Atlanta and the Bengals at home against Houston. Jay Cutler has made a so-so group of receivers much better, but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s throwing far too many interceptions (7), and Matt Forte hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t gotten on track, sinking the running game to 27th overall. The defense isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fierce enough to bail out the Bears. Cincinnatiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defense has been strong enough to turn games in the Bengalsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; favor, but the line has been decimated, losing end Antwan Odom, among the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sacks leaders, to a torn right Achillesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; tendon.

ARIZONA (3-2) AT N.Y. GIANTS (5-1) In their last trip to the Meadowlands, albeit against the Jets, the Cardinals limped away with an injured Anquan Boldin and a 56-35 defeat. They also fell at home to the Giants 37-29 late in 2008, well before the turnaround that catapulted the Cardinals into the Super Bowl. They can make a statement by winning this one, particularly with the Giants angry about their performance at New Orleans in their only defeat. Plus, New York has questions about its secondary, not a good thing with Larry Fitzgerald coming to town. But the Giants also should be able to move the ball, particularly on the ground.

SAN FRANCISCO (3-2) AT HOUSTON (3-3) So much attention is being sent Michael Crabtreeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s way as the first-round draft pick finally gets on the field for the 49ers. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not likely to have a big role, but the return of standout running back Frank Gore figures to be the focal point for San Francisco.

The Redskins finally play someone who has won a game. But the Eagles come off an incredibly poor performance at Oakland, where the line couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t protect Donovan McNabb and the whole team looked like it underestimated the Raiders. Not that there is much to overestimate about an Oakland club that canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t move the ball and must rely on keeping the total score below 25 to win.

Is your hearing current? 211 W. Lexington Avenue, Suite 104 High Point, NC


Smith, Owens meet in matchup of invisible wide receivers CHARLOTTE (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Steve Smith and Terrell Owens on the same field. A short, speedy, dominant and sometimes volatile receiver facing off against a tall, speedy, dominant and sometimes volatile receiver. In the past it would be billed as a matchup of big stars and bigger egos. This year, though, maybe the slogan should be: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Remember these guys?â&#x20AC;? When Owensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Buffalo Bills visit Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Carolina Panthers today, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll feature receivers ranked 49th and 92nd in the NFL in receptions. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve combined for only 474 yards receiving, one touchdown, four wins â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and surprisingly only one blowup. That would be Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outburst after catching just one pass last week against Tampa Bay and declaring that â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m no longer an asset to this team.â&#x20AC;? Neutralized by constant double teams, poor quarterback play, stagnant offenses and the basic frustrations of playing for losing teams have left both players in uncharted territory. Smith is off to his slowest start

since becoming a starter in 2002. Owens recently had his 185-game reception streak, third longest in NFL history, snapped. And consider the game plan for Carolina (2-3) as it seeks its third straight win and prevent Buffalo (2-4) from winning road games in consecutive weeks for the first time since 2004. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to make them a one-dimensional team,â&#x20AC;? Panthers safety Chris Harris said, who clarified that meant making Buffalo throw the ball. The Bills will likely have Ryan Fitzpatrick at quarterback with Trent Edwards recovering from his second concussion in a little over a year. Indeed, Owens has gone out of his way not to create the controversy that has dominated his stops with other teams. It was Smith who grabbed the headlines after he vented his frustration after catching one pass for 4 yards in Carolinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 28-21 win over Tampa Bay. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to win and be involved in a win,â&#x20AC;? Smith said.


Twice, the Vikings went to the wire and won, thanks in great part to the arm, guile and guts of Brett Favre. Those wins over San Francisco and Baltimore are the kind that separate good teams from champions. Now the Vikings face the champions, who have won three in a row. But instead of this matchup highlighting the defenses, both of which are top-notch, it could turn into an offensive showcase SAN DIEGO (2-3) AT KANSAS CITY (1-5) for Favre and Ben Roethlisberger. How familiar does this sound: San Diego is underachieving early in the seaINDIANAPOLIS (5-0) AT ST. LOUIS (0-6) son?

The Chiefs also were 0-4 in the preseason. Cheerio, mates, welcome to the Wembley mismatch. The Patriots, who almost never take anyone lightly, come off a 590 annihilation of another winless team, the Titans. Bill Belichick will likely show more mercy (we think) in front of the English crowd in the third straight regular-season contest in London. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s certainly not a normal week for us,â&#x20AC;? said Tom Brady, who made quite a statement about his comeback when he threw for six touchdowns against Tennessee, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important for us players to realize that this is a trip for us that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to go over there and win a game, nothing more than that. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like any other road trip that we take. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not for going out and seeing the sights or anything like that. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going there to win a game.â&#x20AC;?


Carolinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Steve Smith has just 21 catches for 259 yards and no touchdowns through five games this season.

GREEN BAY (3-2) AT CLEVELAND (1-5) Already struggling on the field, the Browns have been weakened severely by the flu this week. A half-dozen starters could be sidelined, and a suspect defense might have few ways of penetrating that hole-filled Packers blocking unit. Green Bay is getting more comfortable with the 3-4 alignment installed this year, with rookie linebacker Clay Matthews III â&#x20AC;&#x201C; whose dad was a standout for the Browns for 16 seasons â&#x20AC;&#x201C; coming off a superb game.

N.Y. JETS (3-3) AT OAKLAND (2-4) Speaking of gifts, the Eagles were just as nice to the Raiders as the Jets were to the Bills. Oakland shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect such kindness again, especially if New York gets that ground game going again.

Raiders ready for Carver clash I

n their exuberance Friday night, a few of the T. Wingate Andrews players emptied water coolers over the heads of a few coaches. Moments later, Red Raiders head coach Rodney McKoy was preaching moderation, humility and keeping his team’s eye on the prize. Friday’s 54-3 win over Randleman was nice, sure: A boon for an offense that gained 398 yards, a feast for a defense that allowed 134 yards and eight first downs while forcing six turnovers. But it meant very little in the grand scheme of things. Carver awaits Thursday – with the PAC 6 2A Conference championship on the line. “We’re still trying to beat everybody in our conference and get that No. 1,” said senior defensive back James Davis. “We’ve got to stay focused, stay humble.” Certainly there was reason to celebrate Friday. An Andrews offense that hadn’t scored more than 28 points this season owned a 28-3 halftime lead. A running game that had struggled netted 289 yards on 40 carries – 7.2 yards per carry – and had four players at 45 yards or better: Senior Darrell Tucker finished at 87 yards on eight carries, sophomore Vashon Dawkins came in at 15 for 70, junior Jared Taborn netted 57 yards on three carries and junior Xavier Quick had 45 yards on six totes. Then there was that defense, which got off to a fast start when Sidney Hayes returned an interception 41 yards for a score late in the first quarter. Hayes’ big play was followed in short order by ... a fumble recovery by Hayes ... and an interception by Darrin Miller, then a dizzying series of secondhalf picks by Davis, Quan Stevenson and Davis again.

Davis’ second interception came after a tipped pass, and he made a great grab while tumbling to the ground. The senior came down with a third pass SPORTS from Randleman QB Kyle Farlow, but Steve made that nice catch Hanf on the sidelines. ■■■ “The second one I knew I had – the third one I thought I had, but I was out of bounds,” Davis lamented. “We worked on (defending the pass) during practice this week. We were just waiting for it. We knew they were a passing team. All we had to do was sit in our zone and it would come right to us.” The defensive effort was Andrews’ best since shutting out Atkins two weeks ago, and McKoy praised the Red Raiders even during last week’s close win at Trinity: Many of the Bulldogs’ points in that 20-17 overtime thriller came after the Andrews offense put the “D” in a tight spot. So for his part, McKoy didn’t mind – much – the celebratory mood. “We hadn’t played any complete games,” McKoy explained. “This was probably the first complete game we’ve played all year, so it was more that than anything for us. If we play four quarters, we’re tough to beat.” That’ll be the goal Thursday night, when Andrews owns the spotlight thanks to High Point Central’s game at Simeon Stadium on Friday against Southwest Guilford. The Raiders (6-3, 3-0) close the regular season Nov. 6 at Wheatmore. Assuming the bus drivers

can find the new Randolph County school, it’s a safe bet the young Warriors won’t be able to pull a shocker in that one. Carver closes at home against Trinity, which still could have a say in the league race by beating the Jackets. But since the Raiders already beat the Bulldogs, the only team Andrews has to worry about is Carver. That, of course, is a big worry. During the past four years in the Piedmont Triad 3A Conference, Carver won three of four meetings and prevented Andrews from winning a conference championship each time. The Raiders’ last outright conference crown came in 2001 when they captured the MidState 2A. Now, Carver stands in the way in the PAC 6 after both squads dropped enough in enrollment to land in the 2A ranks. McKoy still lives across the street from Carver, where he played and served 10 seasons as an assistant coach. But ... “My family’s in High Point now, my life is, and I want to win the conference championship,” said the third-year Andrews coach. For the second straight year, he’ll face Brent David on the opposing sideline. David starred at Andrews. Which alum will get the upper hand this time? McKoy said it’s the Raiders’ turn to capture the big win, and with it, that conference title. “My first year I had the big fish in my boat – we should have beaten them,” he said of the 24-21 loss. “Last year they were far better than we were offensively. All year for us, we’ve been talking about how we want to get the big fish in our boat for a change.” | 888-3526

Glenn clings to title aspirations BY DANIEL KENNEDY SPECIAL TO THE ENTERPRISE

WINSTON-SALEM – Friday night’s triumphant ending to a 14-7 win was simply step one for the Glenn Bobcats. The next challenge for the confident bunch awaits Friday night in the form of a brawl-for-it-all at Ragsdale at what is sure to be an electric Kenneth T. Miller Stadium. After defeating High Point Central to notch its eighth victory of the season, one could sense the anticipation building among players and coaches toward next week’s tilt as Bobcats prepare to clinch a conference title on the turf of a familiar foe. “We know them and they know us,” said Glenn coach Dickie Cline, who spent 12 seasons with Ragsdale from 1980 to 1991. Cline also added a few simple keys to victory against

the Tigers in saying, “We’ve got to protect the ball and keep their offense off the field.” If the Bobcats’ “D” duplicates its effort from the game with Central, Glenn will no longer be anticipating the next meaningful conference tussle at neighbor East Forsyth. Instead, Bobcat fans may be celebrating a Piedmont Triad Conference banner this time next week. Against Central, Glenn allowed just 205 yards of total offense – 45 of which came courtesy of a scramble

by Bison quarterback Drew Adams. “We’re a bend-but-don’t-break defense,” Cline said. “That’s our philosophy.” Just as simplistic as Cline’s defensive ideology is his offensive playbook. The Tigers may have their most straightforward film session of the season this week, as they will be seeing the No. 4 in their sleep after studying every movement of tailback Josh Hawkins. Hawkins has a firm stranglehold on a Glenn offense that threw the ball a meager three times Friday vs. the Bison. After the game, the junior tailback – who netted 169 yards on 29 touches – spoke candidly of his analysis of Ragsdale. “We’re going to win it,” Hawkins said. “We’ve got to come together, practice harder, play harder. We believe we’re the best and we can do it.”

Strong f inish promising for hopeful Cowboys BY JASON QUEEN SPECIAL TO THE ENTERPRISE

HIGH POINT – Before Southwest Guilford took the field for Senior Night on Friday, “Dust in the Wind” played over the loud speaker at the stadium. By the time the dust settled, the Cowboys’ 21point fourth quarter was nowhere near enough in a 47-28 loss to East Forsyth. Southwest has now lost six straight after opening the season with three straight wins, and the Cowboys need to get things turned around quickly to make a run at the 4A state playoffs with two games left on the schedule. The fourth quarter can certainly be a building block for the Cowboys. Larry Edwards scored twice for Southwest, on a 24-yard pass from Davis Inman and on a 20-yard run. And Inman, who struggled to find his receivers most of the night, finally got in a rhythm and connected with Airyn Willis for another touchdown.

Southwest coach Scott Schwarzer sees reason for hope entering this week’s game at High Point Central and the finale at Parkland on Thursday, Nov. 5. “We’re close to being a good football team,” he said. “We’ll come back Monday, and we’ve got two games left. We’ve just got to find a way to get a win.” Big plays, namely big mistakes, haunted the Cowboys on Friday. Inman’s pass to Willis was picked off just before the half and returned 40 yards for a touchdown, turning a 13-7 deficit into a 20-7 hole. Then, with East clinging to a 27-7 lead midway through the third quarter, the Eagles executed a perfect fake punt. Ray McCloud sneaked through the confused Southwest coverage team for a 41yard score, and that essentially ended the Cowboys’ comeback hopes. This week, Southwest visits a Bison team now 7-2 overall and 3-1 in the league after Friday’s 14-7 loss to Glenn.

Fun at the Outer Banks Y

ou can’t always bank on the advice you get from an outdoor writer. Sometimes they make predictions that just don’t pan out as described. Drum at the point of Cape Hatteras are supposed to bite best on a Northeast or Southwest wind; I’ve preached that many times. As we drove out onto the beach, last Wednesday, there was no wind at all. The SPORTS temperature was in the mid 70s and Dick the air was dry and Jones clear. It was perfect ■■■ weather for being on the beach, just the kind of weather that offers little hope for those wanting to catch a puppy drum. Red drum like rough water and strong currents. This water was clear and calm. There were the normal number of overly optimistic fishermen on the Point, standing in a line, ever confident something was about to happen; and it did. It started with a young lady hooking up on a strong fish that turned out to be two strong fish. When she worked the fish onto the beach, there were two, six or seven pound drum working like a pair of mules, yoked together by a two hook bottom rig. Within a minute, two more fish came in and then, there were a half-dozen fishermen leaning back on their rods with slot-sized puppy drum at the end of every straining line. This was enough information for me to forget my advice about fishing in the wind and current and get a line in the water. Within an hour and a half, over 100 puppy drum, all between 22 and 26 inches, were slid up on the sand. It wasn’t a big drum blitz, but it was a pretty good afternoon of fishing. I left to get supper and should have stayed because about 20 citation fish were landed well after dark. A few weeks ago, I wrote a recipe for a great week at the Outer Banks. By the time you read this, I’ll be getting ready to come home from the exact trip I described. The trip was a family



In spite of the great weather, the fish cooperated in the North Carolina Beach Buggy Association’s first year of running the Drum Tournament. Three hundred anglers from 18 states participated, including 26 women, 10 juniors and 33 seniors. There were 151 red drum caught. The winner was Danny Fletcher from Elizabeth City with a 50-inch drum. The second-place fish at 46.5 inches was caught by 14year-old Matt Hooper from Salvo. The angler with the most drum was Mike Frick from Nashville with 15 drum. For more info on this and next year’s tournament, go to For more info on the house we rented, go to surforsoundsales. com.

trip for us with our daughters, and spouses. Valarie and Jeremy, Suzi and Scott, my Grandkids, Mia and Phoenix, and Cherie and I, had all the room we needed and a great kitchen where each family prepared one dinner meal. One bedroom even has a pair of twin beds for the kids. The house we picked, Summer Wind, was rented from Surf or Sound Realty, in the exact manner I described in the column. It was chosen because it had all the amenities we needed and was available on a couple of days notice. The total cost including everything for 4 nights was less than $25 per night per bedroom. It was the perfect beach house. Not only did it have 4 master suites, it had a boat dock on a canal and was within a quarter mile of Frank and Fran’s the Fisherman’s Friend Tackle Shop, my favorite hangout at Hatteras. There were also first and second floor outdoor decks overlooking the boat dock and canal with a great view out to the sound. The one thing I missed, though we played and relaxed the whole time, was the boat. The dock was right at the house and the Pamlico Sound was less than a quarter of a mile away. Most

Rain postpones Game 6 of ALCS NEW YORK (AP) – An hour after Game 6 of the AL championship series was postponed, there was Andy Pettitte in a nearly empty Yankee Stadium, drenched in the pouring rain. With his short hair soaked and sweat shirt dripping, the New York Yankees’ pitcher played catch in the outfield and ran light sprints through thick puddles on the warning track before finally grabbing some cover in the dugout. Admittedly eager, Pettitte will have to wait for his chance to close out the Los Angeles Angels. Game 6 never started Saturday night and was rescheduled for 8:20 p.m. today. The Yankees lead the best-of-seven series 3-2 and need one vic-

tory to clinch their 40th pennant and reach the World Series for the first time since 2003. Game 7, if necessary, will be Monday in New York at 7:57 p.m. If lefty Joe Saunders and the Angels can push the series that far, the rainout could benefit them. No. 1 starter John Lackey, who took a shutout into the seventh inning of Game 5, could be available to pitch on three days’ rest. Saunders remains scheduled to start Game 6 for Los Angeles against the 37-year-old Pettitte, who is looking to set a pair of major league records. The Yankees’ lefthander owns four seriesclinching wins among his 15 career postseason victories – both tied for the most in baseball history.

Matteson sets record with two 61s ENTERPRISE STAFF, WIRE REPORTS

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Troy Matteson had never shot a 61 until this week. Now he’s done it twice in a row to set a PGA Tour record. His second straight 9-under round at the Open on Saturday gave him a threeshot lead at 16-under 194 heading into the final round. Matteson’s 122 score in consecutive rounds broke the tour record of 123 set this year by Steve Stricker in the third and fourth rounds of the Bob Hope Classic. Webb Simpson (64), Tim Clark (65) and Chris Stroud (65) were tied at 13 under.

In an amazing stretch, Nicholas Thompson had a double eagle on the par-5 11th, followed by a hole-in-one on the par-3 13th, a drop of five shots in three holes. He finished with a 65 to reach 11 under.

small boats could easily navigate the channel and access miles of fishable water. On trips when unexpected winds come up, a small boat could be a trip saver since there’s a lot of canal that could be productively fished. On the first morning, Cherie and I both caught drum. On the second morning, my daughter, Suzi, caught her biggest fish ever, a 6-pound puppy on her first cast. Still no promised Southwest wind, but the fish bit even though they weren’t supposed to. That afternoon I caught bait out of the canal right behind the house and everyone enjoyed our kayaks for short trips up the canal and out to the sound. Thirteen year old, Phoenix had a great time trying to catch a crab while three year old Mia, and Dad, Jeremy fished off the dock. As advertised, the Point was less crowded than normal due to the North Carolina Beach Buggy Drum Tournament. The fishermen were only allowed to fish the North Beaches so there was more room for us. We saw the sun rise and set every morning and afternoon from my favorite beach in the world. Sitting in Pop’s Raw Bar on yesterday afternoon, I enjoyed a plate of sea scallops and thought about how tired I was. We’d played and fished and ate. I’d caught 3 drum and enjoyed seeing everyone fishing, having fun, and enjoying great weather. I got to teach my son in law how to clean fish. My reels needed respooling, my fingers were cut and scraped from cutting bait and handling fish, and my back ached because I’d spent the afternoon catching enough bluefish to have a fish fry for Member’s Monday Dinner at Beaver Pond. It was not a classic blitz. I probably had to cast at least twice for every fish I landed. It was as perfect as any half week anyone ever took and I had so much fun. The things I do for Journalism.

This piece of art, and others from Wings of Africa, are made from the wings of butterflies that have migrated to the Serengeti plains, laid their larva and died.

On butterfly wings After excursions to Africa, artist produces incredible images BY JIMMY TOMLIN ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER


ometimes the best stories at the High Point Market are the exhibitors who are tucked away in the nooks and crannies of the large showroom buildings. Consider, for example, Wings of Africa, which occupied a small Market Square show space – no larger than a guest bedroom – during this past week’s High Point Market. Part art vendor, part ministry, Wings of Africa features intricate, colorful pieces of art meticulously crafted from the wings of African butterflies. “I have an artist in Africa,” explained Sam Watkins, an African missionary who serves as chief executive officer of Wings of Africa. “He goes up into the Serengeti plains and picks up the dead butterflies from the fields where the butterflies migrate through. These butterflies basically lay their larva there and then die, and he picks up the dead ones and clips their wings, and then makes the artwork with the wings.” According to Watkins, the artist spends a couple of months in the Serengeti hunting dead butterflies, then spends the rest of the year creating one-of-a-kind pieces of art with the fragile wings. The artist, a Frenchman named Didier, uses the wings – some large, some small – combining them like small, feathery puzzle pieces to render elephants, lions, birds, African scenes and elaborate geometric designs. “He puts them down in layers that overlap, and he glues them down with a natural resin,” Watkins explained. “You can see he might use 15 to 20 different species of butterflies in a single piece, and he told me at one time there were about 130 to 140 different species of butterflies he might find.” Watkins was quick to point out, however, that his artist takes great

Proceeds from the sale of the artwork are used to help build youth centers, orphanages and clinics in Africa.

Ants would eat the body, but they don’t touch the wings. The wings get brittle, of course, so he has to be very careful not to break them.” Wings of Africa creations are professionally framed, taking care not to let the glass actually touch the wings because it might cause them to smear. Retail prices for the artwork range from about $20 for smaller pieces – which are about the size of a note card – to as much as $8,000 for the largest, most intricate designs. “Some of these pieces might take him three months to complete,” Watkins said. “And these are unique, very individual pieces. You can’t mass-produce them. Some pieces may look similar, but they’re all going to be different.” According to Watkins, who has been a missionary in Africa for about 25 years, a large portion of the proceeds from the sale of the artwork is used to build youth centers, orphanages and clinics in Africa. | 888-3579

Halloween haters say, ‘Boo Humbug!’ BY CARYN BROOKS FOR THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


arlee Smith is hardly in the no-fun category. She hosts a monthly girls’ night out at a bar in Portland, Ore., and co-runs a plus-size vintage boutique called Fat Fancy. But there’s one thing that brings out the hate in her. Smith, 33, is among a contrarian contingent that takes a boo humbug approach to Halloween. “As a kid I remember always sort of dreading finding a costume,” she says. “I’m not knocking it for other people, but I’m just not into the spectacle and pressure of it. I don’t like tacky costumes. I like when people dress up for no reason.” Halloween haters aren’t as easy to categorize as that odd old lady on the block who always pretends that she’s not home on Oct. 31, or people who protest the day on religious grounds. The new Halloween Hater is young, loud and proud. Online T-shirt retailer has a whole line of anti-Halloween offerings that speak for the movement. Slogans include the saucy “I don’t do costumes. But I might do you,” and the simple and effective “I

hate Halloween,” among more than 340 options. Some Halloween haters say they’ve felt that way since childhood. “I distinctly remember putting on one of my dance recital costumes, grabbing my pumpkin bucket, walking up to the door and bursting into tears,” says Alejandra Owens, 27, of Washington, D.C. She has hated Halloween since she was 5. “I felt like the moment I walked out the door everyone would be pointing at me and laughing – and not in a good way.” Does she consider herself a curmudgeon? “Maybe in college a little, but now all my good friends know how I feel about Halloween so it’s more like a running joke,” she says. “One thing I DO like about Halloween: Now that I live in D.C. people

are incredibly creative and smart about their costumes. It’s not just gorilla suits and sexy nurses. People in this town really get into their politically themed costumes.” If Halloween hating is born of childhood bad experiences, does that make it more of a phobia than a matter of taste? The scientific name for extreme fear of Halloween is “samhainophobia,” named for the ancient Pagan festival of the dead Samain. Jerilyn Ross, president of the Anxiety Disorders Association of America, says actual phobias take things way beyond just a dislike or anxiety. “To have a Halloween phobia, you avoid it all cost,” she says. The fear in a phobia, she says, is excessive and irrational and the person knows it.

Man’s dangerous driving puts his business at risk D

ear Abby: My husband, “Harvey,” and I have operated a home-based business for more than 20 years. Harvey is an amazing technician, extremely efficient with his time on the job. The problem is, he is always in a hurry to get to the next job. I receive calls from angry motorists complaining that “the driver of one of our trucks” cut them off, yelled at them or flipped them off in traffic. When I receive one of these calls I say, “Thank you for calling. I’ll be sure to speak to the appropriate driver about the incident.” Harvey feels I should support him by telling the caller it was probably his own fault for talking on a cell phone, driving too slow or cutting him off. I have no doubt that some of these motorists actually do those things, but my husband is driving around with his phone number on his truck and they’re not. When I mention the complaints, he wants to call them back using caller ID. Am I handling this appropriately? I don’t feel I should reprimand someone for bad driving if I wasn’t present when something happened, nor do I want anyone to know it was my husband – the owner of the business – who flipped them off. Harvey is angry at me because I’m “not supporting” him. Any suggestions? – Between a Rock and a Hard Place

Dear Between: Harvey may be a great technician, but it appears he’s a little short on common sense and good manners. I see no reason why you should defend him. His behavior is not only childish but also dangerous. Because other motorists are actually calling to report his erratic driving, it’s a pretty good indication that your husband is an accident waiting to happen. It’s time you mentioned to him that what he’s doing is also bad for business. Those he offends in traffic are not likely to say a kind word about the business he’s advertising on his truck. Dear Abby: My husband, “Adrian,” and I


Parking garages are focus of National Building Museum exhibit THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON – Parking garages usually aren’t the most attractive buildings in a city, but they are the subject of a new exhibit at the National Building Museum in Washington. The exhibit, “House of Cars:

have been married five years, but there is something looming in our future that ADVICE both of us dread – our Dear parents’ old Abby age. Adrian ■■■ is an only child. I have one sister, but when it comes to caring for our parents, I might as well be an only child. Adrian’s parents live month-to-month on Social Security and pension checks. If they ever have any extra money, they don’t save it. They buy each other expensive gifts and eat out. Neither one of them is in good health, and the day will come when they won’t be able to care for themselves or each other, and I know they’ll expect us to do it. My parents are about the same, except they’re banking on an inheritance to see them through retirement. That money may or may not be enough, considering how long people live now. My grandparents were frugal. They saved and were determined not to be a burden on their children. Our parents think it’s our duty to care for them.

We cringe at the idea that after all our hard work we’ll go from caring for our children to caring for our parents with no time for ourselves. – Afraid for the Future in San Antonio

platforms for the best-known architects of the 20th century. The exhibit features the work of Frank Lloyd Wright, among others, and includes art as well as footage from TV and movies. The exhibit starts with photographs, drawings and a vintage 1927 Ford Model A.


Dear Afraid: No one can foresee the future, so stop ruining the present by obsessing about what “might” happen. You say your in-laws are not in good health? One or both of them could die before they become completely dependent on you and your husband. The same is true for your parents. Forgive me if this seems cold, but it happens to be the truth.

Photo released by Southeast Community College shows an animatronic miner loading coal onto a transport car as another prepares to haul it out of Portal 31, a tourist mine in Lynch, Ky.

Kentucky coal mine opens to tourists L

YNCH, Ky. – Joseph Marzelli is glad for the cheerful canary singing in the darkness of an Appalachian coal mine. “As long as I can hear your song, I know I’m safe,” Marzelli says in a heavy Italian accent as he explains the ins and outs of coal mining as it was done in the early days of the Industrial Revolution, when miners used canaries as air monitors. Marzelli is one of a crew of animatronic miners who greet visitors inside Portal 31, an underground coal mine that folks here have transformed into a tourist attraction. In broken English, Marzelli, flanked by an animatronic coal-mining mule, shares his appreciation for his new home in America and a job that, at the time, was done primarily with picks and shovels and dynamite. “Life is bellissimo,” he says. Folks in this historic mining community share his enthusiasm after turning the old mine into the centerpiece for the budding tourism industry built around coal. Three decades after Portal 31 played out, they’re hoping the mine that meanders for miles beneath Black Mountain will once again be an economic engine for Harlan County while also honoring the lives of the hard-bodied men who braved darkness and danger to eke out their livings in the Appalachians. Local resident Terina Widner, daughter of a coal miner who was killed in an underground explosion near here, said she’s convinced Portal 31 can be an economic boon for the community. “It’s very realistic,” Widner said. “This is a golden opportunity.

dient to pull this whole recipe of cultural tourism together in Harlan County.” Widner and her 8-yearold son, Brett, were part of a group that boarded a railcar in early October for a tour through the reinforced tunnels. “Keep your arms and legs inside,” a voice reminds the passengers. “Remember, safety first. As you can see from the posters, it’s our motto here at Portal 31. Always has been, since the mine opened in 1917.” With that said, the railcar begins to rumble down the tracks and into the darkness of the mine. It’s so dark at times, passengers can’t see the people sitting around them. “Now, just so you know, we’ll be going not just

through the mine, but back in time ... “Our first stop, 1919.” That’s when Marzelli comes into view and the railcar comes to a stop. Depicting a recent immigrant, Marzelli leans on his pick and talks to the snorting mule. Marzelli appears lifelike in the dim light. His lips move realistically as he discusses life as a miner after the turn of 20th century. A Welshman yells from the darkness: “Fire in the hole.” Then, the rumble of an explosion. It unnerves the mule. “Easy, calmare,” Marzelli says in a calming voice. “Aren’t you used to that noise yet?” The roughly 30-minute tour involves eight stops, all of which depict a different era in mining, progressing to a modern-day

exhibit that shows the kind of toothy machines that continuously chew coal out of the black veins inside the Appalachians. The $2.5 million project was decades in the planning and involved not only the creative talents of writers and designers but also the expertise of engineers like Steve Gardner of Lexington, whose job was to ensure tourist safety. Gardner said he limited the tour to areas of the mine that have proven safe over nearly 90 years. He added so-called roof bolts, long metal rods drilled into the overhead rock layers to provide additional stability. Then he installed a superstrength metal mesh overhead. Tunnel walls were covered with a sealant to permanently bind the coal and rock in place. Contractors also sealed off unused mine tunnels to keep methane gases out. Gardner and other designers then ordered an overhead metal cab for the railcar for yet another level of protection in case of rock falls. “It was not difficult to make the mine safe,” Gardner said. “It was just taking care of the basics.” Phyllis Sizemore, curator at the nearby Kentucky Coal Mine Museum, said the Portal 31 tours pay homage to coal

miners, past and present. “The economic boost, that’s a significant reason to do something like this,” she said. “But I’m not sure that’s the No. 1 reason. The thing in people’s minds here all along was to not let people forget the sacrifices of the coal miners, the dedication of the people who mined coal.” The tunnels are more than 6 feet from floor to ceiling, but Gardner said people who are claustrophobic or scared of the dark may want to stay clear. “We think that’s part of the intrigue,” said Bruce Ayers, president of Southeast Community College in nearby Cumberland. “We really believe in order to sustain a bona fide tourism program, you have to have one big ticket

item, and we’re hoping this will be the catalyst around which we can build a tourism industry.” Ayers, head of a committee that championed the Portal 31 project, said many components that made Lynch and surrounding towns a tourist destination already were in place – most of the row houses, stores, schools and churches built by coal companies in Lynch and nearby Benham and Cumberland are still standing. Gardner said he’s hopeful some of the 1 million people who visit the nearby Cumberland Gap National Historic Park each year will decide also take in Portal 31 and other nearby sites, including the Kentucky Coal Mine Museum that now attracts about 30,000 people a year.





IENNA – Sachertorte. Magnificent palaces. Splendid museums. When Phillip Kalantirsky had his fill of Vienna the Opulent, he stayed on for a taste of Vienna Noir – in a walking tour built around the cult film “The Third Man.” “I’m obsessed with the movie,” the 37-year-old lawyer from New York said on a recent afternoon as he and his wife waited for the tour to start. “Most old films are very dated, you don’t buy into them. ’The Third Man’ is different.” Kalantirsky’s fascination with the film – set and partly shot in postwar Vienna – is shared by many. Six decades after “The Third Man” premiered in London in September 1949, tourists from around the world pound the Austrian capital’s pavements – and even slip into its sewers – to see where the much-acclaimed motion picture was set. Fans can choose from the walking tour or the underground tour, visit a museum devoted to the movie, or even watch it in a theater. Starring Orson Welles, the film tells the story of Holly Martins, a naive and broke American writer who investigates what appears to be the mysterious death of his old friend, Harry Lime, in a Vienna replete with rubble and racketeers, divided into zones run by the Western allies and the Soviet Union. Before long, he discovers that Lime is not dead but rather wrapped up in the trafficking of stolen, diluted penicillin, a scheme that has crippled and killed children. Based on a screenplay by Graham Greene and directed by Carol Reed, the film is set to haunting Viennese zither music that’s instantly familiar yet also unsettling — the perfect accompaniment for film noir. While “The Third Man” won an Oscar and grand prize of the Cannes Film Festival, it was less of a hit in Vienna, with locals unappreciative of the portrayal of the city’s residents as grasping and cowardly. But with “The Third Man” wildly popular elsewhere, the Austrian capital now offers an array of attractions based on the movie. Aside from the above-ground walking tour, film fans can delve into the city’s underworld by descending into its extensive sewer system to see where Lime met his dramatic demise, shot to death by Martins. Those with an aversion for damp and dingy surroundings can spend hours in a private museum crammed with photos, posters and other paraphernalia that grew out of a collector’s love for all things related to “The Third Man.” The collection includes a tribute to the soundtrack’s composer and performer, Anton Karas, who became a star in his own right. An audio terminal lets visitors sample more than 400 covers of the movie’s theme music, including a version by The Beatles.

And for film neophytes or connoisseurs in need of a refresher or quick fix, the city’s Burg cinema holds screenings three to four times a week. Even on a recent balmy Sunday, while others enjoyed the weather, about two dozen people filed into the theater. “It’s a masterpiece,” said Brian Davis, a 28-year-old tourist from Los Angeles, on his way in. Cinema owner Kurt Schramek says the screenings are well-attended. “The film is interesting for visitors because it was shot on location,” Schramek said. “For some, it has become a bit of a tradition to go see it.” For others, such as Herbert Halbik, the movie evokes childhood memories.

Martins of murdering Harry Lime’s porter. “I think the film is great, it’s definitely one of the best,” said Halbik, who played the part as a 3-year-old and now runs a tobacco shop. While he doesn’t recall much of the shooting of the film, a trip to London to tape studio scenes sparked his lifelong love for orange marmalade. “It was so unusual, you couldn’t get it in Austria for years,” he said with a chuckle during a recent interview, evoking postwar shortages that led to the kind of smuggling the film touches on. Experts say the movie is more than just entertainment. Brigitte Timmermann, an Austrian historian who spent a decade researching the production, describes it as an educational tool about life in the

Austrian capital at the cusp of the Cold War. “Graham Greene, as a former spy, was a very accurate observer, which makes the film an excellent documentation of the time,” said the author of an extensive book titled “The Third Man’s Vienna: Celebrating a Film Classic.” Timmermann, who has given walking tours for 20 years and often hosts student groups, said the movie continues to appeal to people from around the world because it is “tangible.” “There aren’t too many films in which a city takes center stage,” Timmermann said, adding that people from as far afield as the United States, Australia and Japan take her guided walks. Even former servicemen have shown up for her 2.5-hour trek through town. “These people want to take the tour so badly they don’t care if it’s raining or if it’s 17 below freezing,” she said. Peter Brunette, an expert on European film and a professor of film studies at Wake Forest University, enjoyed taking a “Third Man” tour while in Vienna for its annual film festival, the Viennale. He says the movie remains compelling thanks to superb acting, rich black-and-white cinematography, and the contrast it offers between “our idea of Old Europe” and Vienna’s “dark underbelly.” “The world is corrupt and in fact people are evil,” Brunette said, summing up the film’s world-weary, existentialist tone. “There’s a deliciousness to that.”

Leaving money to kids can be harmful Q

uestion: My wife and I are approaching our retirement years, and we have been very blessed financially. We own several large businesses and will have a sizable estate to pass on to our three children. How do you feel about leaving large amounts of money to the next generation, and is there a right and wrong way to do it? Dr. Dobson: My views on that subject may not be what you want to hear, but I can only tell you what I’ve observed and what I firmly believe. In a word, I’m convinced that it is very dangerous to give large amounts of money to kids who haven’t earned it. A sociological study published some time ago called Rich Kids validated the concerns I have observed. The authors of that study concluded that large trust funds are usually destructive to those who inherit them. The case studies they cited were convincing. Human history also confirms the dangerous influence of money. Men and women have lusted for it, killed for it, died for it and gone to hell for




Is it true that if you have low income you can get help paying Medicare premiums? A. Yes. If your income and resources are limited, your state may be able to help with your Medicare Part B premium, deductibles, and coinsurance amounts. State rules vary on the income and resource limits that apply. Contact your state or local medical assistance, social services or welfare office, or call the Medicare hotline, (800) MEDICARE, which is (800) 633-4227, and ask about the Medicare Savings Programs. If you have limited income and resources, you also may be eligible for help paying for prescription drug coverage under Medicare Part D. Call Social Security at (800) 7721213 or visit any Social Security office and ask about extra help paying for Medicare prescription drug coverage. TTY users should call (800) 325-0778. Online information is available at www. and at Q. What is the minimum Social Security amount payable? A. There is no minimum monthly Social Security benefit, although for administrative reasons, we will not pay a benefit of less than $1.00. However, to receive any amount of Social Security benefits, you must have the minimum amount of work credits. Everyone born in 1929 or later needs 40 credits to be eligible for retirement benefits. Therefore since you can earn four credits per year, you will need at least 10 years of work to become eligible for retirement benefits. FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION, visit the Web site www. or call toll-free at (800) 772-1213 or TTY at (800) 325-0778. OZELLA BUNDY is a public affairs specialist with the Social Security Administration.

The question to ask is whether or not leaving large amounts of money to offspring is worth the risk it imposes on those you love. You must decide if you want to remove from your children the challenges that helped you succeed the obligation to work hard, live frugally, save, build and produce by the sweat of your brow. Do you feel right about replacing that need for discipline and industry with a readymade empire that can be mishandled or squandered? Please understand that I know this view is unconventional. One of the reasons people work so hard is so their children won’t have to. They love their kids immeasurably and want to make things easier for them. Further, they’ve invested a lifetime in the development of a business and the accumulation of wealth. Are they now going to sell it and walk away? That’s an unpleasant prospect for any parent. I can’t make that decision for others, of course. My obligation is simply to present the issue as I see it. And in my experience, the inheritance of wealth is threatening to family relationships,

self-discipline, spiritual commitment, and responsible living. It should be done only with great care, years of preparation, and much prayer. Question: Is it harder for a man or for a woman to recover from an affair by a spouse? Dr. Dobson: I have not observed any appreciable difference between the sexes at the time of disclosure. Both husbands and wives suffer incalculable anguish when a mate is unfaithful. Men do seem to have a cultural advantage after the crisis is over, however. Their work is often a better diversion, and their economic consequences are less severe. They also find it easier to find someone new, as a rule. But no one wins in illicit affairs of the heart. DR.

Felines often use catwalk to steer clear of pests D

ear Dr. Fox: Regarding the two cats that avoided the floor and chose to walk on the couch and chairs: Is it possible that fleas inhabit the carpet? We had a cat who did this in Florida until we discovered fleas and got rid of them. Also, one of our current cats (rescued in Florida) used to walk only on the sidewalk or driveway when we brought her home to Minnesota. It took her a long time to realize our grass was basically bug-free. – H.O., Rushford, Minn. Dear H.O.: Many thanks for this topical insight with regard to cats’ avoidance of carpets and grass. Pet-safe and environmentally harmless products to rid carpets and rooms of fleas include Fleabuster’s static-charged borate powder and high-grade (not pool-grade) diatomaceous earth. Sprinkle either of these products on carpets, floors, sofa creases, etc., and vacuum after 24 to 48 hours, repeating every two to three weeks. The diatomaceous earth can also be sprinkled around outdoor patios. Avoid inhaling this powder, and sprinkle slowly and gently rather than making clouds

of dust. Both products kill fleas by essentially smothering and desiccating them. I advise all pet owners to avoid using topical antiANIMAL flea chemicals on your cats and DOCTOR dogs, the longterm use of which Dr. Michael is not safe, and Fox even short-term ■■■ use can cause serious toxic reactions in some animals. An integrated approach to controlling fleas is essential, as per the detailed protocol in my book “Cat Body, Cat Mind” (Lyons Press, 2007). Cats are extremely sensitive to insecticidal chemicals, the safer varieties of which, such as Summit VetPharm’s Vectra, should only be used as a last resort when physical methods of flea control – from using a flea comb daily to regular floor treatment and vacuuming – fail to keep these pests at bay. One of the best preventions, of course, is not to allow cats to roam outdoors where they can pick up fleas and bring them indoors to infest the home.

Dear Dr. Fox: I have been using your food formula for my two Labs for more than a year, and the one dog who had allergies at least four times a year has not been to the vet for allergies for a year! Thank you so much. If we have residual effects of another hurricane or have a power outage, what would be the best thing to give the dogs instead of chicken that would not have to be refrigerated? Also, are there any vegetables that dogs cannot or should not eat? I’ve heard cinnamon is good for dogs. – M.R., Washington, D.C. Dear M.R.: Thanks for confirming the benefits of whole foods for dogs. When the power goes out, pack the homemade food in ice, or ice some eggs to use as a stopgap for chicken or turkey. You should also try lentils or pinto beans as a protein substitute. Cinnamon may help pets and people with diabetes, and it has many other health benefits. Dogs do well with a few vegetables in their diet, but avoid the cabbage family – including broccoli and Brussels sprouts – if the animal is suffering from

hypothyroidism. Green beans, peas, zucchini and yams (sweet potatoes) in small portions (1 to 2 tablespoons per 30-pound weight per meal) are excellent high-fiber whole foods. Dogs with diabetes mellitus should probably not be fed yams or sweet potatoes, and no dog should be fed onions. Garlic in small amounts (one large clove per 30 pounds of body weight) is safe for most dogs and should be given with food to avoid stomach irritation; it may also help repel fleas. Some dogs love avocado, but the skin may be toxic to dogs (and it could kill parrots). Some dogs (cats more so) are allergic to corn products, and wheat can cause seizures in some dogs.

School often source of pinworm transmission


ear Dr. Donohue: My son has had a real learning experience in kindergarten. I think he has pinworms. This is all very new to me, so I’m not sure. I’m relying on my neighbor’s knowledge. I mentioned to her that he’s been scratching his rear end all the time, and she came up with pinworms as the reason. How do I know for sure? How is this disgusting thing treated? – L.B. The whole world has to put up with pinworms. They aren’t a sign of poor hygiene; they’re easily passed from the infected to the noninfected, and the place where most transmission occurs is school. I can understand your disgust at the thought that your son has worms crawling on and in him, but the infection truly is (usually) easily handled. Adult pinworms live in the intestinal tract. At night, the adult female treks down the tract to the anus, where she lays eggs in and around it. A female can produce up to 10,000 eggs. They cause itching, the chief sign of infection. Scratch-

ing lodges eggs beneath the fingernails, and the fingers then transfer them to others. Eggs can survive in underclothes and bed HEALTH linens, and those objects become Dr. Paul another route of Donohue transmission. ■■■ Inspect the anal area at night with a flashlight, and do so about two hours after the child has gone to sleep. They’re slender and little, only about two-fifths of an inch long. They look like tiny, white threads. Doctors sample for them by attaching transparent tape to the end of a tongue blade with the sticky side out. They press the tape to the perianal skin to collect the worms and eggs, which they can then see with a microscope. Albendazole (Albenza), mebendazole (Vermox) and pyrantel pamoate (nonprescription) usually can end an infection. A repeat dose is given in two weeks to prevent reinfec-

tion. The entire family has to be treated. Underwear and bed linens are washed in the hot cycle of the washer and dryer. You’re not alone. Close to 42 million Americans face a pinworm problem every year. Dear Dr. Donohue: I read that high-fiber food inhibits the absorption of calcium but cannot find information that verifies that claim. The drug company that I questioned had no information. If that claim is true, shouldn’t there be a warning on calcium supplements? If it is accurate that calcium should not be taken with meals containing high fiber, how soon is it recommended to take the supplement? – E.S. Some kinds of fiber diminish calcium absorption a bit, but it’s not a huge loss of the ingested calcium – not enough to lose sleep over or to fret about. If you eat a huge amount of fiber, then wait four hours until you take your calcium. Dear Dr. Donohue: I have been using Fiberall daily for

at least five years. My sisterin-law says I have developed a laxative habit and will need a doctor’s help to get over it. Have I become dependent on it? Does it really require a medical regimen to get over it? I didn’t think I was doing myself any harm. There’s no mention on the label about this. – G.K. Forget what your sister-inlaw told you. Fiberall is psyllium, a plant material. It’s the stuff your grandmother called roughage. It’s another source of natural fiber. We’re all supposed to get 25-35 grams of fiber daily. You haven’t become dependent on it, unless you consider a normal need a dependency. Other psyllium products are Konsyl, Metamucil and Perdiem. DR. DONOHUE regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

it. Money has come between the best of friends and brought down the proud and mighty. And alas, it has torn millions of marriages limb from limb! It’s also been my FOCUS observation that nothing will divide siblings more ON THE quickly than money. FAMILY Giving them a large inheritance increases the Dr. James probability of tension Dobson and disharmony within ■■■ a family. Your sons and daughters will fight over control of your businesses, and they’ll resent those who are designated as decision makers. Some of them will lose their motivation to be responsible and will experiment with various addictive behaviors – from gambling to alcoholism. There are exceptions to these negative consequences, of course, and some people do handle wealth and power gracefully. But it is a difficult assignment at best and one that requires the greatest maturity and self-control.

Net neutrality Hurdles remain as FCC ponders web data rules BY JOELLE TESSLER AP TECHNOLOGY WRITER

WASHINGTON — With Democrats in charge in Washington, supporters of so-called “net neutrality” rules seem poised to finally push through requirements that highspeed Internet providers give equal treatment to all data flowing over their networks. These rules — at the heart of a five-year policy debate — are intended to guarantee that Internet users can go to any Web

Net neutrality is intended to guarantee that Internet users can go to any Web site and access any online service they want. site and access any online service they want. Phone and cable companies, for instance, wouldn’t be able to block subscribers from using cheaper Internet calling services or accessing online video sites that compete with their core businesses. Yet making that happen is proving thorny — and it’s likely that the courts and perhaps even Con-

gress will ultimately get involved. The Federal Communications Commission is considering a proposal by the agency’s chairman, Julius Genachowski to begin crafting regulations to prohibit broadband providers from favoring or discriminating against Internet traffic. On Thursday, the FCC took an important step toward prohibiting broadband providers from favoring or discriminating against certain kinds of Internet traffic. Despite the concerns of the agency’s two Republicans and telecommunications companies, the Federal Communications Commission voted to begin writing so-called “network neutrality” regulations. Although Genachowski has the support of the other two Democrats on the five-member commission, his proposal has run into strong opposition from the large phone, cable and wireless companies that provide the bulk of U.S. high-speed Internet connections. Broadband providers such as AT&T Inc., Verizon Communications Inc. and Comcast Corp. argue that after pouring billions of dollars into their networks, they should be able to operate those networks as they see fit. That includes offering premium services over their lines to differentiate themselves from competitors and earn a healthy return on their investments. Genachowski’s proposal has also encountered misgivings among Republicans on the FCC and in Congress, who fear network neutrality rules could discourage broad-


Federal Communications Commission Chairman Julius Genachowski testifies on Capitol Hill in Washington. The FCC is considering a proposal by the agency’s chairman to begin crafting rules intended to guarantee that Internet users can go to any legal Web site and access any legal online service that they want. band providers from continuing to expand and upgrade their systems. “The risk of regulation really inhibits investment,” said Republican Commissioner Robert McDowell. Noting the agency’s estimated price tag of up to $350 billion to bring broadband connections to all Americans, he added: “How do we pay for all that?” One thing everyone agrees on is that the FCC will have to sort through some tricky issues as Genachowski’s plan moves forward. One question is how much flexibility broadband providers should have to keep their networks running smoothly by ensuring that highbandwidth applications such as YouTube videos don’t hog too much capacity and impede other traffic like e-mail and online searches. In other words,

when does legitimate network management cross the line to become discrimination? Lawrence Spiwak, president of the Phoenix Center for Advanced Legal & Economic Policy Studies, a think tank that promotes free-market approaches, fears the FCC could hurt small, rural carriers that face higher costs to build out their systems. Without the ability to manage traffic, he said, these companies could be forced to make expensive network upgrades they cannot afford. The FCC also needs to sort out how the rules would apply to wireless systems, which have less bandwidth capacity than wire-based networks and might have greater need for traffic management. AT&T, the exclusive U.S. carrier for Apple Inc.’s iPhone, already is running into capacity chal-


lenges given the popularity of the gadget and its scores of bandwidth-consuming applications. “There could be unintended consequences of applying net neutrality to wireless,” said Christopher Guttman-McCabe, vice president of regulatory affairs for CTIA-The Wireless Association, an industry trade group. Genachowski’s plan calls for the agency to formally adopt four broadband principles that have guided the FCC’s enforcement of communications laws on a case-by-case basis. Those principles state that network operators must allow subscribers to access all online content, applications, services and devices as long as they are legal. The FCC relied on those guidelines last year when it ordered Comcast to stop blocking subscribers from using an online filesharing service called BitTorrent, which is used to transfer large files such as online video. Comcast is challenging the FCC ruling in court. Genachowski also wants the FCC to adopt two more principles. One would make it clear that broadband providers couldn’t discriminate against particular content or applications, either by blocking them completely or by letting other traffic jump ahead in the queue. The other would require providers to disclose network management practices. He is also seeking to extend all six principles to wireless systems, which have been largely unregulated. The agency would likely finalized and adopt regulations by next summer.

Network neutrality is the practice of network operators moving data on the Internet without regard to who provided it. Without what’s commonly called net neutrality, network operators (including Internet Service Providers that provide Internet service to consumers) could theoretically give preference to the Web sites and services of corporations that enter into financial agreements with them and slow down data from sources that do not have such agreements. While net neutrality has been the standard practice of network operators since the Internet’s inception, there is no law that requires it. Opponents of net neutrality argue that leaving the Internet unregulated has allowed companies to experiment with new business models, leading to billions of dollars of investment in Internet infrastructure. They said a law directing net neutrality would stifle their ability to make new investments and try new business frameworks. Net neutrality proponents say that if the telecom and cable companies have their way, the Internet would turn into a digital highway where big Web sites that can afford to pay more would roar down the fast lanes, while the little sites would be relegated to the shoulders.



ASK A.P.: Journalist tackles growth hormone issue. 2F


3F 5F 6F



Holstein cows are seen at De Vries Dairy in Pasco, Wash., A reader-submitted question about an article on breast cancer that stated numerous studies have shown a link between the artificial growth hormone rBGH and breast cancer is being answered as part of an Associated Press Q&A column called “Ask AP.”

Questions concern Miranda rights, growth hormone THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Any cop in the U.S. who makes an arrest must also read the suspect his Miranda rights, those famous few lines beginning: “You have the right to remain silent.” How about overseas? When U.S. authorities arrest a terror suspect, must that person also be read his rights? Curiosity about the boundaries of American judicial principles inspired one of the questions in this edition of “Ask AP,” a weekly Q&A column where AP journalists respond to readers’ questions about the news. If you have your own news-related question that you’d like to see answered by an AP reporter or editor, send it to, with “Ask AP” in the subject line. And please include your full name and hometown so they can be published with your question.

sions and United Nations missions. Anne Gearan AP National Security Writer Washington, D.C. Q. What is the current U.S. policy regarding the reading of Miranda rights to captured terrorist suspects? Are Miranda rights reserved for U.S. citizens, or are these warnings given to anyone who might be tried in U.S. courts or U.S. military tribunals? Did our policy change when the administrations changed? Rowland Driskell Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif. A. The Obama administration insists there has been no policy change whatsoever regarding the use of Miranda warnings to terror suspects overseas. The policy is this: there is no need to give Miranda warnings to the vast majority of terror suspects overseas because in most cases there is no expectation such a suspect will be brought to the United States for trial. In those relatively few cases where career agents and prosecutors believe they may want to bring that person to trial in the U.S., then Miranda warnings are to be read. Devlin Barrett AP Justice Department Writer, Washington, D.C.

Q. Can you tell me the difference in designation among the American troops deployed throughout the world — i.e., NATO, coalition, UN peacekeepers, etc.? Kimberly Bush Springfield, Ill. A. The United States has more than 500,000 forces stationed overseas. They serve under three broad headings. By far the largest is the combatant command system, a geographic designation. U.S. Central Command, for example, covers countries in the Middle East and North Africa. The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan fall unQ. In the Oct. 4 edider Centcom’s jurisdic- tion of Boston Globe tion. The other broad Magazine, an article headings are NATO mis- on breast cancer stated

that numerous studies have shown a link between the artificial growth hormone rBGH and breast cancer. If this is true, why do products that claim they do not contain rBGH need to display the disclaimer, “FDA states: No significant difference in milk from cows treated with the artificial growth hormone (rBGH)”? Joanne Quirk Westfield, Mass. A. Both humans and cows naturally produce growth hormone. The artificial hormone rBGH is a synthetic version of the bovine, or cow, growth hormone that some farmers use to stimulate milk production. The concern about a possible breast cancer link arose because this first hormone increases the cows’ production of a second natural hormone — IGF-1 — that at very high levels is thought to play a role in certain tumors. How big a role IGF-1 plays remains a scientific question. But the government concluded that any increase in a person’s body from drinking milk from an rBGH-treated cow would be too small to matter. The American Cancer Society reviewed the controversy earlier this year. The organization took no formal position on the use of rBGH and encouraged more research. But the Cancer Society also pointed out a different concern: Cows are given antibiotics to treat rBGH-linked infections, and it’s unclear if that contributes to antibiotic-resistant germs in people.

GIBSONVILLE – Town board members held the first of several discussions to craft a policy dictating the use of town property by employees at a Monday meeting. The discussion followed public outcry after a resident showed the board six photos of Gibsonville Lt. Rebecca Dixon dropping off a child at daycare while parked in a handicapped space and parked at Belk’s at a Reidsville mall in one of the town’s

police cars during a Sept. 15 meeting. The resident – Paul Dean – called for the termination of Dixon and Police Chief Mike Woznick, claiming the chief was complicit in the personal use of town property. The town has no policy regarding the use of its vehicles. The Police Department has a policy, and Woznick allows about six officers often called to duty during their off hours to drive patrol cars home. Town Manager Ben Baxley presented a draft policy to the Board of Al-

dermen on Monday night. The draft stipulates that town property be used for town business only and that vehicles would only be taken home if approved by the town manager. Vehicles taken home could not carry unauthorized passengers, and employees who take them home could not live outside a 20-mile radius of town. “I know there has been public outcry. It won’t happen again, especially with that individual because she is conscientious and the issue has been resolved,” Woznick said.

Piedmont county gets recovery designation MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE REGIONAL NEWS SERVICE

BURLINGTON – Federal stimulus money will save Alamance County about $500,000 in interest payments on 10-year loans for the county’s nearly $10.29 million plan to renovate a number of county-owned or leased properties, County Manager Craig Honeycutt said. The commissioners on

Monday approved a resolution designating the county an economic recovery zone. The designation allows the federal government to pick up the tab for 45 percent of the interest on loans covering public projects like the countywide plan and anticipated street-repaving in Burlington. The commissioners have approved a $3.5 mil-

lion loan to do the first group of projects already under way and they anticipate getting a roughly $6.5 million loan for the second phase. Preliminary estimates show that the federal help will save the county about $50,000 a year for 10 years, the length of the county’s loans on the refurbishing plan, Honeycutt said. The loans will be sold on the public bond market.

The largest single firstphase project is an estimated $1.34 million in renovations to convert the former DSS Building on Martin Street in Burlington to the new Family Justice Center and the County Fire Marshal’s office. The center will house a number of services for domestic abuse victims. It will be the first of its kind in North Carolina.

Wyclef Jean is working on his memoir NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Wyclef Jean is working on a memoir. The solo star and former frontman for The Fugees is collaborating with Rolling Stone w r i t e r Anthony Bozza on a Jean book â&#x20AC;&#x201C; currently untitled â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to be published by It Books, an imprint of HarperCollins. Financial terms werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t disclosed and a release date hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been set. The publisher announced in a statement last week that the book will cover Jeanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life, from his childhood in rural Haiti to his musical career and philan-

put more razzle-dazzle into the show, whose TV ratings generally have declined over the last two decades. Instead of the usual standup comic, the Oscars called on songand-dance man Hugh Jackman to host the show this past year. The Oscars are set for March 7.

Last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s announcement marked the second year in a row that organizers have picked a pair of rookie Oscar producers to oversee the show. Last seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Oscars were produced by filmmakers Bill Condon and Laurence Mark. Oscar organizers are trying to

Newest Halloween costumes include bite-size gore fest

211 W. Lexington Avenue, Suite 104, High Point, NC




alloween has morphed into a gore fest that has kids as young as 6 unleashing their inner monsters in ultra-violent costumes – bloodsmeared chain saws and spiked killing gloves sold separately. Options include Leatherface from “Texas Chainsaw Massacre,” Jason (“Friday the 13th”), Freddy (“A Nightmare on Elm Street”) and Michael (“Halloween”). Costume sizes can run so small that many wearers might be too young to have seen the slasher movies under film industry guidelines. Fanged creatures feasting on brain stems. Possessed babies chomping on arms. Not all parents think it’s OK for the holiday second only to Christmas in the minds of many kids to be more a celebration of the most deranged characters pop culture has to offer. “Bloody, sadistic, nightmare-inducing Halloween costumes are indeed being made and marketed for kids, and no one seems to care,” said Joel Schwartzberg, a parenting writer and Montclair, N.J., dad of a 10-year-old boy and twin 7-year-old girls. Schwartzberg is fighting back at, which he hopes will raise awareness about how

PINEWEST OB-GYN, INC Welcomes NATASHA DWAMENA, MD Dr. Natasha Dwamena was born and raised in Jersey City, New Jersey. She obtained her Bachelor’s degree with honors from Stanford University in Palo Alto, California followed by her Medical Degree from University of Medicine and Dentistry - New Jersey Medical School in Newark, New Jersey. She completed her Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency at Meharry Medical College in Nashville, Tennessee. FILE | AP

This Oct. 31, 2008, file photo shows children wearing Halloween masks receiving candy and sweets during the “Trick or Treat” tradition. Halloween has strayed from “sickly sweet to just plain sick.” No puritan, he said he loves a good horror flick and has even written some himself, but what’s the point of all the realistic gore – for the very young, anyway? “I think wearing these costumes and being exposed to human depravity, even in a ‘fun’ context, doesn’t scar kids so much as desensitize them to brutal violence,” Schwartzberg said. “Kids

are less able to distinguish between real world and fictional brutality than grown-ups.” Some schools are also concerned, toning down Halloween celebrations or banning them altogether because of complaints about the gore factor, along with religious objections and concerns about too much candy and potentially dangerous props like pointy toy swords and vision-impairing masks.

But it’s Halloweeeeeeeeeen, costume companies and other parents argue, urging the bothered among them to exercise the privilege of saying “No” to violent, realistic gore. “It’s one night a year – let them have fun as long as it’s something that’s not dangerous or putting their life in jeopardy,” said Big Lake, Minn., mom Cindy Chapman, who has a 9-year-old daughter.

Dr. Dwamena has a wide range of interests regarding Women’s Health. She is very interested in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery, high risk pregnancy, as well as preventative health care. Dr. Dwamena is Board Eligible in Obstetrics and Gynecology and is a Member of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology. Dr. Dwamena currently resides in High Point and is an admirer of the performing arts, enjoys travel, cultural dance, photography, reading political history and cultural anthropology.

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – The memory still bothers Ken Keller: A panicked ambulance crew had a critically ill patient, but the man weighed more than 1,000 pounds and could not fit inside the vehicle. And the stretcher wasn’t sturdy enough to hold him. The crew offered an idea to Keller, who was then an investigator with the Kansas Board of Emergency Medical Services. Could they use a forklift to load the man – bed and all – onto a flatbed truck? Keller agreed: There was no other choice. “I’m sure it was terribly embarrassing to be in his own bed, riding on the back of a flatbed with straps tying him down, going to the hospital, and then have a forklift at the hospital unload him,” Keller said. As the nation battles the obesity crisis, ambulance crews are trying to improve how they transport extremely heavy patients, who become significantly more difficult to move as they surpass 350 pounds. And caring for such patients is expensive, requiring costly equipment and extra workers, so some ambulance companies have started charging higher fees for especially overweight people. The move to modify ambulances is just the latest effort to accommodate plus-sized patients. Some hospitals already offer specially designed beds, wheelchairs, walkers and even commodes. Transporting extremely heavy people costs about 21⁄2 times as much as normal-weight patients.

Operation Ziploc needs community’s help SPECIAL TO THE ENTERPRISE

TRIAD – Hundreds of thousands of military personnel are serving in far-off places defending the liberties we hold so dear – away from their families, friends and the comforts of home. To show these troops that they have not been forgotten and to help boost their morale, the High Point Regional As-

sociation of Realtors is reaching out to not only their association but to those within the community as well by asking them to help support our nation’s troops overseas by participating in the Operation Ziploc Bag Project. In the past two years, more than 1,200 Ziploc bags containing items ranging from candy and snacks to socks and underwear have been contributed.

The High Point Realtors Association received contributions from members of the Realtors Association, a church in Caswell County, Randolph County, Guilford County, area merchants and generous members of the public. This year the goal is to continue the same path of giving. The request is that people pack as many items as they can

into one gallon or larger Ziploc plastic bags. The drop-off points for people to take their bags to are: High Point Regional Association of Realtors office, 1830 Eastchester Drive, High Point; Russell Realty, 100 Salem Street, Thomasville; Stan Byrd & Associates, 10468 N. Main St., Suite B, Archdale; Tri County Real Estate, 765 Shady Grove Church Road, Winston-Salem/Wallburg. The

Association asks that all bags be dropped off by Nov. 5th. The list of items will be available at the Association office (889-8181) or HYPERLINK “” \o “blocked::mailto:hprar@” and at our Web site HYPERLINK “http://www.” \o “http://www.” \t “_blank” http://

Program works well for High Point home buyers


he High Point Regional Association of Realtors has been a strong proponent of the First-time Home Buyer Tax Credit that is scheduled to expire at midnight on Nov. 30. A recent HPRAR Presidents Advisory Group, (PAG), reported that 42 percent of High Point MLS sales were attributed to the First-Time Home Buyers Tax Credit with an average sale price of $122,500. National Association of Realtors reports that at a press conference on Oct. 8th, House Speaker Pelosi (D-CA) responded favorably when asked about the likelihood of extending the first-time homebuyer tax credit. When asked about the possibility of further

housing legislation, she responded, “Yes, it is under consideration whether we extend the first time homeowners credit. And the question is, that be just REAL ESTATE would first-time homJeannene eowners or would Poarch you open it up to ■■■ other purchasers of homes?” She shed no further light on whether the credit would be expanded, but did note that the cost of an expansion would be the major consideration in the decision process. Bloomberg Wire Services reports that Chairman Rangel

(D-NY) said, “There’s no question that I think it should be extended; for how long, we should discuss.” As yet, no formal action has been announced. The North Carolina Association of Realtors Government Affairs Department has initiated an intensive email call for action campaign to let our Representatives in Washington know that we are not only in favor of extending the tax, but we think it should be extended to all homebuyers. Of residential sales in the High Point market, 88.6 percent are in the $0 to $250,000 price range with only 10.90 percent in the $250,000 to $500,000 price range. If you


feel as we do that this tax credit for first-time home buyers has succeeded in jump-starting the lower end of the housing market, but more needs to be done to lure the “trade-up” buyers back to the market, please join us and contact your congressional representative to voice your opinion. JEANNENE POARCH is president of the High Point Regional Association of Realtors, one of more than 1,800 local boards and associations nationwide that comprise the National Association of Realtors (NAR). The Association is an advocate for property rights and the “Voice of Real Estate” in the Triad area of North Carolina. HPRAR represents more than 700 members in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industry.

Relocation tips help buyers pick the best community kids. School quality should be a crucial consideration for all buyers who want their property values to go up in the future,” Davis says. • Eliminate neighborhoods too far from your REAL ESTATE workplace. In the past, more people were willing to accept Ellen a commute in excess of Martin 30 minutes in exchange ■■■ for the chance to live in a large house with a substantial yard. But high gas prices are one reason for the declining popularity of outlying communities. “Ideally, you should screen out any neighborhood that forces you to spend too much time driving back and forth to work,” Davis says. • Seek out the opinions of others. Those who are relocating for the second or third time realize the wisdom of contacting people who already live in the region where they’re moving. “Co-workers are a font of good information on the best neighborhoods around town. But because human beings will strongly defend their choice of where to live, don’t take their opinions as gospel,” Ottwein says. He says real estate appraisers are another source of solid information on the most promising neighborhoods in a region. “If you can’t find their contact information online, ask local mortgage lenders for the names and phone numbers of appraisers they know,” Ottwein says. • Study neighborhoods on your short list. Once you’ve narrowed the field to a few communities that seem appealing, it’s time to scrutinize them more carefully. Even before taking the time to chat with neighborhood residents, Ottwein suggests you drive around and survey the surroundings. “I wouldn’t buy a house in any community within a half-mile of an interstate highway. There are always trucks on interstates, so the noise never dies down,” he says, “People enjoy communities that are walkable and have lots of small retail shops, as well as friendly restaurants,” Ottwein says. • Pick a real estate agent who knows the turf. Eric Tyson, co-author of “Home Buying for Dummies,” says those relocating to an area they don’t know need to be sure to choose an agent who is familiar with property selection in that community. “Sometimes agents from one part of a metro area will try to convince you they know the whole region, no matter how big. But that’s usually impossible,” he says.

Neighborhoods vary widely in terms of key factors – some obvious and others harder to detect. That’s why Ottwein urges those moving into a new area to spend a minimum of two full days assessing neighborhood options before embarking on any serious home shopping. “It’s a mistake to parachute in from another state and immediately start looking at specific houses. First target the right community,” Ottwein says. He urges you to take a systematic, step-by-step approach to neighborhood selection. “It’s a lot easier to screen houses – inside and out – by scanning Web sites. But so far, technology isn’t good enough to find you the right neighborhood remotely,” Ottwein says. Ultimately, he says that to get a genuine feel for a neighborhood you need to drive to the community, get out of your car and talk to residents. “They’ll speak candidly and also give you their gripes, so long as they aren’t trying to sell their house,” Ottwein says. Here are pointers for those planning a long-distance move: • Put school quality at the top of your list. Those who may relocate multiple times for job reasons, including private-sector executives and military people, should be especially attentive to neighborhood factors that could affect the future resale potential of their property, says Sid Davis, author of “A Survival Guide for Buying a Home.” First and foremost, he recommends you search for neighborhoods served by well-rated public schools. “Houses in highly desirable school districts sell more quickly and for more money than like houses in a lesser school district nearby. The price differential can be more than 10 or 15 percent,” Davis says. As a preliminary school system screen, look for online data measuring such factors as test scores, median class size and per pupil expenditures. Later, you may wish to quiz neighbors on intangible measures, such as teacher responsiveness, and visit the schools. “It doesn’t matter if you don’t have

Allen Tate Company sponsors ‘Ultimate Fan Package’ sweepstakes SPECIAL TO THE ENTERPRISE

CHARLOTTE – Allen Tate Realtors, the Preferred Realtor of the Carolina Panthers, wants to help you cheer on the home team – in their house at Bank of America Stadium – and in your house. The company is sponsoring the “Ultimate Fan Package” Sweepstakes – a grand prize package (retail value $1,760) that includes 4 lower-level seats and 4 field passes to the January 3, 2010 Carolina Panthers vs. New Orleans game at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte. The lucky winner will also take home a signed, framed Carolina Panthers jersey and a 42-

inch LG Plasma HDTV. The contest is open to North and South Carolina residents who are 18 years of age or older at the time of entry. Contestants must provide a valid e-mail address. No purchase is required. To register, visit and complete an online entry form, or stop by any Allen Tate sales office. Limit one entry per person and per e-mail address. Contest is void where prohibited or restricted by law. The “Ultimate Fan Package Sweepstakes” ends at midnight on November 15. Prize drawing will be held on or before Dec. 4. Official rules may be found at

“This is a great opportunity for Allen Tate to team up with the Carolina Panthers and celebrate our long-term partnership. We’re excited to offer this contest to Panthers fans throughout the Carolinas,” said Pat Riley, president of Allen Tate Company. The contest is the latest in a series of promotions with the Carolina Panthers in recent years. In 2007, Allen Tate celebrated its 50th anniversary with the “Crossing the 50” program. Each time the Carolina offense crossed the 50-yard line, the Panthers broadcaster announced Allen Tate Company’s 50 years in the real estate industry.
