City mayoral candidates differ on ABC system BY DARRICK IGNASIAK ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER
HIGH POINT – Candidates for High Point’s mayoral race and the two at-large City Council seats differ on their views on
whether the state should privatize the ABC system. Currently, it is a local decision to establish and operate ABC stores. Local governments act through an appointed local ABC board, which balances the con-
trol, profit and stock of spirits in its jurisdiction. State legislators have had discussions about privatizing the ABC system – an issue that candidates expressed split views on during a recent candidate forum.
Dr. M. Todd Knippenberg has been hired as assistant professor of chemistry in the Department of Chemistry and Physics at High Point University. In his new role, Knippenberg is responsible for teaching various chemistry courses and assisting chemistry majors with computational chemistry research.
Incumbent Mayor Becky Smothers said she supports the current system because law enforcement is a key component of regulating ABC laws. She said

GUILFORD COUNTY – An education professional faces a concerned mother and PTA leader in the Nov. 2 race for an at-large seat on the Guilford County Board of Education. Incumbent Nancy Routh of Pleasant Garden and Lisa Ingle Clapp of McLeansville are energized about their issues. “I still have the knowledge and skill, and I’m just not ready to quit,” said Routh, 78, a board member since 2002. “I still consider myself an educator. When we get into many of these issues, my principal’s brain kicks in.” Routh has served on statelevel committees on student testing and education reform. Her top issues include managing the district’s

shrinking budget while protecting teachers. “I try to keep up and informed,” Routh said. Clapp, 40, devotes much of her energy to school safety and discipline issues. She has criticized the district’s handling of school violence for years. “I have been disturbed by what I have seen in the schools and the way students are allowed to behave,” Clapp said. Clapp said teachers have told her that principals are under pressure to keep the number of reported violations low. “Some students get a time out instead,” she said. Routh said she was unfamiliar with the exact inci-
dents Clapp mentions. Violent incidents are reported according to state standards, Routh said, and students are suspended and removed from school for code violations. “There is a mechanism to file a complaint, and students get suspended and they go to the alternative schools,” she said. Students who bring weapons to school or who injure others seriously are suspended for as long as a year by law, Routh said. Others facing minor offenses receive shorter suspensions and can return to class. Clapp suggested principals should intervene sooner to remove students to alternative schools “where they should stay longer.” “Teachers should be trained better to handle these students in the alternative setting. We have to weigh
the options to make schools safer,” Clapp said. In other areas, the candidates agree they don’t like the state’s testing program and that the district should work to retain good teachers. “Testing is not teaching,” Routh said. “The tests are aimed at promoting competence by global standards, but our students have not been tested as competent by national standards for 20 years.” “Testing takes away from the creativity of teaching,” Clapp said. email@example.com | 888-3626
City sets dedication for Liberty Tree Memorial BY PAT KIMBROUGH ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER
HIGH POINT – A tribute to the nation’s freedom and founding will put down roots in the city during a dedication planned for Veteran’s Day. The city received a ceremonial disease-resistant American Liberty Elm tree through a grant from the Liberty Tree Society sponsored by Elm Research Institute in Keene, N.H. The tree is part of a memorial being put together at a site near Oak Hollow Lake as an Eagle Scout project by John Parks
Jr. of Boy Scout Troop 3 in Jamestown. “The group in New Hampshire basically gave us the tree and then helped with the Eagle Scout project in exchange for giving them a little publicity and for getting other people to try to join their group,” said Andy Piper, senior planner for the city. “Somebody will be there with information to hand out about their mission and goal.” The memorial includes a plaque with an inscription that recounts the history of Boston’s Liberty Tree, an American elm that was the rallying place for the Sons of
Liberty during the Revolutionary War. The Elm Research Institute has set a goal of establishing 1,000 Liberty Tree Memorials in communities across the country to promote this part of American history and to foster efforts to plant diseaseresistant American Liberty Elms in public spaces nationwide. High Point will be the 438th such memorial it has established. The institute was established in 1967 with the goal of saving the American elm from extinction. The organization sponsored genetic research that produced the American

Liberty Elm, a purebred descendant of disease-resistant American elms. It is the only elm with a lifetime warranty against Dutch elm disease. More than 300,000 have been planted since 1984. The dedication ceremony is scheduled for Nov. 11 at 3 p.m. at the Festival Park North Overlook, located off Eastchester Drive next to the Oak Hollow Lake Dam. The memorial will be dedicated and there will be a reading of the “Liberty Tree” poem by Thomas Paine. firstname.lastname@example.org | 888-3531

Elisa Baker (center), stepmother of Zahra Clare Baker, appears before District Court Judge Gregory Hayes on an obstruction of justice charge Wednesday, Oct. 13 in Newton.
NC police: Stepmother talking prosthetic leg because of bone cancer. Authorities in recent weeks have combed wooded areas and a landfill for evidence or her body. Deal said Tuesday that Elisa Baker, 42, was taken earlier this week to a home where she once lived. But he declined to elaborate. Police have not found the girl’s body and haven’t charged anyone with killing her. A statement from Hickory police Tuesday afternoon said investigators seized a mattress found by workers at a
Caldwell County landfill when the area was being regraded following a search last week. The statement said the mattress will be tested for DNA evidence. The stepmother has been charged with obstruction of justice. Police said she acknowledged to writing a bogus ransom note found at the scene of a fire in the family’s back yard on the day Zahra Clare Baker was reported missing. The girl’s father, Adam Baker, was arrested Monday on unrelated charges.
Current system gets support, too FROM PAGE 1
the city depends on revenues generated by the local system, and the current system allows the city to regulate where ABC stores are positioned, including away from schools and churches. Smothers’ challenger, Jay Wagner, said he supports privatization of the system. Wagner said he believes government should not be in a business that could be operated in the private sector.
“I also feel like the sale of the existing ABC franchises could provide a one-time windfall in terms of money for the city, as well as you wouldn’t have a cost of operating the stores in the future,” he said. “If you have an increased availability, you would also have a corresponding net increase in the amount of tax dollars that come in from the sale as well. That could end up being a net gain for the
city.” Dwayne-Hemingway El, also a mayoral candidate, agreed that the state should keep the current system in place. “If it’s not broke, don’t fix it,” he said. City Council candidate Ed Squires, as well as incumbents Mary Lou Blakeney and Latimer Alexander, said they support the current system. City Council candidate Britt Moore said he leans toward the privatization
side, while candidate Will Armfield II supports privatization of the system. “If we don’t need to be in the area, the government doesn’t need to be involved,” Armfield said. “I’m for small government. If private enterprise can do it, then fine. If there is a problem, we can revoke the license. That’s not hard to do.”

Governor becomes accidental wedding crasher
JEROME, Idaho (AP) – Idaho Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter accidentally became the state’s highest ranking wedding crasher during a campaign stop. The state’s chief executive entered a room in the Jerome Public Library in southern Idaho with other GOP candidates on
Wednesday evening. The Times-News reports that Otter was responding to a difficult question about wolves when wedding guests began arriving from the nuptials in a nearby park. One of the guests lobbed an even tougher question when she asked why the governor had taken over a

Emergency management officials say five or six homes were destroyed by strong winds about 7 p.m. in northwest Lincoln County, and the same storm blew roofs off buildings and flipped tractor-trailers on their

We are at an important crossroad in this nation It’s just amazing how much mud is being thrown in the political arena without having any evidence. This is just a distraction from the real issues we are facing. Where’s the integrity? What does a man gain when he gains the whole world but loses his soul? This election is about the direction of this nation, plain and simple. Do we as a nation believe how it was founded or do we not? “To fundamentally transform,” what does it really mean? Think about it (to collapse the existing foundation and implode the structure). Do we restore this nation by using our God-given ability and innovation or do we change the whole structure from a freemarket system to something unrecognizable? Are we self-reliant or dependent? Do we show a man how to fish or give him a fish? We as a nation need to be honest and truthful with ourselves and really look at how serious the situation is. We need to get back to basics. We the people feed our government but are slowly starving by the overt stealing from our food cellar where the shelves are almost bare. This country is at a crossroad and it’s up to us which direction we go. We better choose the correct one! Vote Nov. 2. GREG RINEHART Kernersville
Cast vote for less government control Vote! It doesn’t matter who you vote for in the upcoming election, the government is still in control and there lies the problem. We need less government! Every time something happens, people start blaming it on the government and expecting the government to pay for it. Wake up people, the government doesn’t pay for everything. WOODY GRADY High Point
High Point needs Henley on City Council Recently at a community event a well-intended individual asked Ward 4 City Council candidate, A.B. Henley, “I hear you are running for City Council … are you crazy?” Henley grinned and said, “Maybe, but I think our city is facing some crucial issues and I believe I can help.”
I happen to agree with Henley and I also understand why the question was asked. Henley is a successful entrepreneur and developer who has brought jobs and quality projects to our city. He is a community leader who has had a positive impact on many of our community organizations (HP Community Foundation, Boys & Girls Club, HP Hospital). He is a highly regarded High Pointer. So why run for a sometimes thankless and frustrating position? Like many successful High Point entrepreneurs who have become effective city leaders, Henley believes in the potential of our city. In this era of economic turmoil, there are no easy solutions for any city. It will take citizens, businesses and government working together to overcome obstacles and restore our growth. I have worked with Henley on business projects and community initiatives. He has a keen ability to identify and isolate the key issues and the leadership skills to bring people together to solve issues and move forward. True to his character, Henley asked a lot of questions and did a lot of listening before he agreed to run. Once he found he could be a help, he has committed himself 100 percent to improving the future of our city. Is he crazy to run? Maybe. Is he the type of leader of leader Ward 4 and the City of High Point needs? Definitely. GREG YORK High Point
Vote Squires for City Council at-large seat I am a business owner in High Point. I also have businesses in Thomasville and Jamestown. I have had the pleasure of knowing Ed Squires and his family since 1998. In fact, Squires has been an employee in my company in various capacities. He started as a teacher in a classroom and worked his way up to center director. One of the few reasons, I still continue to do business in High Point is because of Squires. The success or failure of my business is directly linked to the success or failure of High Point itself. I was therefore overjoyed to learn that he was standing for
High Point City Council. Squires knows the community well. He not only grew up here but his real estate business, involvement in child care and his activities with the church have provided him a unique insight into the community. These are tough economic times and our turnaround will come from knowledge of the community and not politics! Squires will bring that knowledge, compassion, integrity and hard work. Please support him. DONNY BANERJI High Point
Squires has skills, ability needed on City Council I have known Edward Squires for at least 25 years of his life, and I have at least five good reasons why voters should support his candidacy for City Council at large. First, he is a man of honor that served his country proudly and was honorably discharged after eight years of military service. Next, he is a man of honesty and integrity. He has great character, is passionate about life, a good family man and a successful businessman. In addition, Squires possesses the ability to think things through. He considers all options before rendering judgment. This pragmatic approach is paramount with a candidate’s decision-making skills and Squires certainly has that ability. For the above mentioned reasons, I believe that voters should support Edward Squires for City Council. EARL D. BOSS High Point
Howard Coble is an easy choice for Congress Election Day is fast approaching and I am still mulling over some of my choices on the ballot. There is one category, however, that is a no-brainer and that’s for the 6th District U.S. House. My choice is Congressman Howard Coble. Voting for Coble is easy because he tells you how he thinks and he votes accordingly. He is not one of these wishy-washy types who tries to appease all and
pleases no one. Coble is a forthright, conservative leader who listens and genuinely cares. You are on your own for the other races, but take it from me, the easy call for Nov. 2 is Congressman Howard Coble. KAREN HUGHES Greensboro
State NAACP President William Barber was on local TV recently alleging that racists were involved in the Tea Party movement. Yes there are some racists involved in all political parties. If Barber wants to see a racist he should look in the mirror. Some of the most racist groups in this country are NAACP with their counterpart KKK and Black Panthers with counterpart Skin Heads. One group is as bad as the other. Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson and Barber are racists hiding behind the “reverend” badge. I was brought up with belief that religious leaders helped everyone, not people of a certain race, color or political party. I’m sure that Jesus will judge these individuals on their actions not color. In addition, the labor unions are supporting the Democrats at all levels of the election cycle. Another item that was disclosed recently is that absentee ballots in 35 Illinois counties missed the deadline to mail military ballots to our soldiers defending America. Vision America’s website stated, “But in Chicago, county election officials have taken special steps to ensure that no inmates at the Cook County Jail are unable to cast a ballot. The Chicago Board of Elections hand delivers ballots to the jail. Over 2,600 inmates have cast ballots so far – strikingly similar to the 2,600 soldiers who will likely not receive a ballot for the Nov 2 election.” What do we expect from the Chicago Democrats? In 2008, we had ACORN manipulating the registration and voting system. Now we have the election board deliberately taking actions to insure Democrats will win the 2010 election. We need to release the Army Special Forces on Chicago and let the Special Forces take care of the problem. DON BAKER Thomasville

development and property management, are strong candidates. While both cite the city budget, changes in economic development and infrastructure improvements as priorities, Henley, who has been involved in many community organizations and currently is chairman of the High Point Community Foundation, gets the nod for better articulating not only what needs to be done but how he believes City Council should do it. Ward 5: Rodney Joslin lists eliminating wasteful spending and better evaluation of projects as his primary goals. Geoffrey Shull, a 26-year-old entrepreneur, sees working more closely with current business owners, Realtors and developers to spur economic development and advocates beautification of the city as a whole and developing long-term goals as priorities. They are challenging incumbent Chris Whitley, who has spent 17 years on City Council. His plans to continue his fiscal prudence of maintaining lower taxes and user fees and his zeal

race, simply put, Sims has both the experience and the knowledge to serve a ward that needs strong, influential representation not only for Ward 1 but for the city as a whole. Ward 2: At the end of his first term, Foster Douglas still seems to be on the uphill side of a long learning curve and, while working hard, hasn’t accomplished much. He has two challengers Jill Harwood and Chris Williams. With well-thought out plans to build community involvement, bridge the gap between the Ward 2 community and City Hall, push for more economic development and safer neighborhoods in the ward, Williams appears to be the best choice. Ward 4: Both Robert Fowler, a Realtor with decades of military leadership experience and small business owner, and A.B. Henley, who has over 20 years of senior management experience in the financial and distribution industries and over 10 years of experience in commercial real estate including leasing, brokerage,

hree of the four incumbents in the High Point City Council ward races face opposition, while two ward seats – those previously held by Bill Bencini and John Faircloth – are up for grabs among newcomers. Bencini, who had been the Ward 4 representative, is unopposed for a Guilford County Board of Commissioner’s District 2 seat and Faircloth, who was the Ward 6 representative is unopposed in the state House of Representative’s District 61. Mike Pugh, City Council Ward 3 incumbent also is unopposed. Our recommendations for the other five ward posts are: Ward 1: Incumbent Bernita Sims remains focused on preserving and protecting High Point’s tax base, attracting and retaining businesses and finding code-meeting affordable housing while, at the same time, clearing the city of dilapidated housing. Her opponent, Jeffrey Gordon, cites the need to improve city services more rapidly, especially transportation services. But in this City Council

for redefining the city’s economic development policy while working to retain current businesses and encourage new businesses are among the reasons Whitley should serve another City Council term. Ward 6: There is no doubt that retired High Point University professor Jim Corey believes a small business incubator is the way to go to help gear up small businesses and create jobs while also focusing on public safety, especially in High Point’s south side. Gerald Grubb, 64, has run such a low-profile campaign that few know much about him. Jason Ewing, 33, also favors more emphasis on small business and entrepreneurial recruiting, along with finding new uses for unoccupied former manufacturing and warehouse buildings in the city’s core area, revising and improving public transportation and beginning the process of making the center city more attractive for a variety of businesses. With that agenda and his energy, Ewing is the best fit for the job.

High Point must redefine, reprioritize its economy The Enterprise ran notices asking City Council candidates to submit guest columns about their candidacies. Nine candidates replied by the Oct. 1 deadline. Their comments conclude on the Commentary page this week.
BY A.B. HENLEY
hanks to the High Point Enterprise for this opportunity to share my thoughts on our city and to ask for your vote to represent Ward 4 on City Council. As a High Point native, my decision to run for public office is based on the growing concern that High Point has been slow to redefine and reprioritize the economic drivers of the community. As a youngster, my parents proudly displayed front license tags that read, â€œHigh Point â€“ Furniture Capital of the World.â€? And for decades, furniture and related industries put citizens to work and served as our economic engine. While our furniture market must never be overlooked, the market itself is not enough to sustain our community. Economic development means a whole lot more than just building sewer lines! Our city government needs to be a more active participant in defining a strategic vision for High Point and executing on that vision. Ask yourself, â€œWhat do visitors experience that is unique and different when they come to High Point â€Ś an experience that makes them want to stay?â€? If we canâ€™t answer that question, we need to. I believe we face twin
challenges in improving our quality of life here in High Point. We must support our longstanding corporate citizens and at the same time recruit new corporate partners to help provide jobs and grow our economy. Creating jobs will be my number one priority as a city councilman. I will work tirelessly to promote the economic interests of High Point, both within the community and outside the community. I genuinely believe that if a City Council member isnâ€™t connected to what is working in other communities to attract new employers and new residents, they canâ€™t be effective in their position. City Council members must also have the ability to recognize priorities and work in a spirit of cooperation rather than holding fast to personal agendas and self-interests. Council members can only influence positive change when

We have witnessed the evil of the Holocaust and the scars of the Hindu-Islam conflict in India. Every day, we hear about another deadly battle of â€œIâ€™m right! Youâ€™re wrong.â€? For Godâ€™s sake, what are we doing? Our faiths follow such similar

they respect their peers and avoid the personal attacks that give todayâ€™s politics such a poor image. I canâ€™t always promise to agree with my fellow council members, but I will always respect their opinions when presented in the spirit of cooperation. Lastly, I believe we must embrace regionalism while enhancing our cultural identity. High Point is best served by embracing the wave of economic initiatives for which Winston-Salem and Greensboro leaders are expending resources. The Heart of the Triad initiative presents High Point with a meaningful opportunity for net economic growth. However, regional cooperation in no way suggests that High Point must somehow compromise its unique identity and character as a community. I would appreciate your vote for A.B.

principles, promoting a world of peace and love, acceptance and compassion. But our devotion to the minutia of religion, the dogmatic need to be right, blinds us to our potential of unity TEEN VIEW and coexistence. I once read a BudThomas dhist proverb about Gooding an elephant and some â– â– â– blind men, a tale that epitomizes the closedmindedness of many religious societies. In the parable, a king positioned three blind men around an elephant. He then asked them to reach out and describe how the animal felt. â€œAn elephant is like a brush,â€? one exclaimed, holding the tail. â€œNo!â€? retorted the one with the tusk, â€œAn elephant is like a spear!â€? â€œNo!â€? cried the others. And the men battled each other, each certain that he was correct. Are we not all blind men, desperately clinging to our incomplete truths? So many people live their entire lives focusing on only one point of view. Iâ€™m a Christian, because, well, uh, itâ€™s just right. Iâ€™m a Muslim, because â€Ś because, Iâ€™m just a Muslim. Iâ€™m a Hindu, Iâ€™m a Jew, Iâ€™m a Buddhist, but why? Faith should not be afraid to doubt, to question, to explore. Only through discovering other faiths will we be able to develop who we are as believers, and understand more fully the God whom we follow. I did, at last, fill in an answer choice on the SAT, marking Christian with conviction. But in the room next door, my friend chose Muslim, and further down the hall, another friend marked Hindu. Each of us approaches God through the filters of our faith, all of us strong believers. But thatâ€™s OK. Our paths may take different twists and turns, but we are all on the path to God.

My eyes had quickly picked out the empty bubble beside the word â€œChristian,â€? but my hand had stopped, frozen, above the answer choice, my gaze shifting to the long list of religions, thousands of years of history culminating in one simple question.

BMW said it notified the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency that it would recall 130,000 vehicles from the 20072010 model years over emissions. The recall covers the 2007-2010 335i; 2008-2010 135i, 535i and X6 xDrive35i Sports Activity Coupes; and 2009-2010 Z4 Roadster sDrive35i.

WASHINGTON (AP) â€“ A year ago, two top Republican strategists sat down for lunch at the venerable Mayflower Hotel, five blocks from the White House, calculating how to exploit the voter anger they had seen erupt at Democratic town hall meetings that summer. Today, the money-raising success of the GOP-allied attack led by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the Karl Rove-inspired American Crossroads has stunned opponents and even its own
architects. Itâ€™s one big slice of the estimated $3.5 billion expected to be spent on this yearâ€™s campaigning, a record for a midterm election. Financed to a great degree by undisclosed donors â€“ and helped by a new Supreme Court ruling â€“ the deep-pocketed groups have become a dominant part of this electionâ€™s narrative. They have reversed past pre-eminence by Democratic outside groups. And they have become a prototype for elections to come.

Board to consider school programs BY DAVID NIVENS ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER
GUILFORD COUNTY – School district officials will take a look Thursday at financing bowling clubs for middle and high school students and a new magnet program for Allen Jay Middle School. Several parents and bowling recreation centers have challenged the Guilford County Board of Education to allow middle and high school students to join bowling clubs, many of which offer college scholarship opportunities and competition. The board will meet at 6 p.m. Thursday in district administrative offices in Greensboro. Parents and the four clubs in Greensboro and High Point worked for 12 months to bring a proposal to the board. Sponsors also want the district to provide $25,000 for transportation. Many parents have found bowling to be a good sport for students who don’t like team sports or can’t make the football team. Meanwhile, Allen Jay Middle School in High Point could become a dedicated middle school with special programs and a longer school year when it reopens in 2012 with 100 fifth-graders and 100 sixthgraders if school officials approve the $3.1 million five-year plan. One hundred seventhgraders and 100 eighthgraders would report to the school in 2013 and 2014, respectively. Earlier this year, Superintendent Mo Green said planners would work out bus schedules and Saturday meals, higher staff salaries and sports teams. He said students and parents would want to be a part of the program because it has produced great academic success where it has been installed. The school would combine the programs and methods of the Knowledge Is Power Program charter schools, the Ron Clark Academy private school in Atlanta and the Mastery Charter Schools chain. Some of the curricula are based on the integration of music, dance and rhyme. School days would begin at 7:30 a.m. and end at 5 p.m. on weekdays and run from 8 a.m. to noon on two Saturdays each month. A 2008 school bond project, Allen Jay is scheduled for renovations for use as a small middle school. The project has a $12.1 million budget. firstname.lastname@example.org | 888-3626
Free season: The bowling centers would offer bowling time and equipment use twice a month to students at no cost from November to February. College scholarship money is available to tournament winners. The funds are placed in education savings accounts, according to sponsors.

Hangar deal OK’d Davidson facility would house medical helicopter BY DARRICK IGNASIAK ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER
DAVIDSON COUNTY – A Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center helicopter soon will be stationed at the Davidson County Airport, providing medical care to Davidson and Randolph counties. The Davidson County Board of Commissioners on Tuesday night agreed to lease a county-owned hangar at the Davidson County Airport to Colorado-based Air Methods Corp. Under the lease agreement, the company will pay
the county $2,175 per month from Nov. 1 until Oct. 31, 2015. Davidson County purchased the hangar last month for $160,000 from SSG, a marketing company co-owned by semi-retired NASCAR driver Terry Labonte. Just before the county purchased the hangar, the county heard from Air Methods about its hopes to house a WFUBMC helicopter at the Davidson County Airport, said Davidson County Assistant Manager Zeb Hanner Jr. “It was a lot of good coincidences that all came together at the same time,” he said. The county’s purchase of the hangar worked out for both sides, Hanner said, adding that the company plans to operate the helicop-
ter out of the airport by mid-November. Built in 2005, the hangar is about 10,000 square feet, with a 1,700square-foot office attached. Hanner said the tax value of the hangar is listed at $425,000. Hanner said the county will get property taxes from the helicopter that is valued at $4.5 million. The WFUBMC helicopter will serve Davidson, Rowan and Randolph counties, Hanner said. “It will be a good thing for the county,” he said. County officials said Air Methods will provide around the clock services from the hangar, with employees working 12-hour shifts.

Feds to monitor election complaints ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT
TRIAD – Federal authorities announced Tuesday they have appointed representatives to handle complaints of fraud and voting rights abuses for next week’s elections. Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert Hamilton will lead the efforts of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of North Carolina to deter election fraud and discrimination at the polls and to prosecute any offenses that do occur. Eight years ago, the U.S. Depart-
ment of Justice established a ballot access and voter integrity initiative which seeks to ensure public confidence in the integrity of the election process by providing local points of contact for the public to report possible election fraud and voting rights violations while the polls are open on election day. Hamilton will be on duty while polls are open and can be reached at 333-5351. In addition, the FBI will have special agents available to investigate allegations of fraud and other election abuses and can be reached at 855-7770.
YOUR COMMUNITY. YOUR NEWSPAPER.
In addition, complaints about ballot access problems or discrimination can be made directly to the Civil Rights Division’s Voting Section in Washington, D.C., at (800) 253-3931. “Every citizen must be able to vote without interference or discrimination and to have that vote counted without it being stolen because of fraud,” said Acting U.S. Attorney for the Middle District of North Carolina John Stone. “The Department of Justice will act promptly and aggressively to protect the integrity of the election process.”

Precious and priceless, So lovable too The world’s sweetness miracle Baby, it’s you. -Helen Steiner RiceHIGH POINT - On October 21, 2010, Cameron Devon Rosa entered in this world as one of God’s littlest angels.

Harpe and Gertrude Johnson. His great-grandfather, Samuel Johnson, will also be in heaven to continue to nurture his heavenly growth. Our Little Angel leaves to cherish his memory, his paternal grandmother, Mary Rosa, who had fondly named him “Peanut”.

Political groups fined for last-minute filings RALEIGH (AP) – Four dozen political committees have been fined a combined $41,600 for failing to report immediately campaign contributions received in the two weeks before the May primary. The State Board of Elections contacted candidates and political action committees last week informing them of the penalties and how to appeal. Deputy elections director Kim Strach said Tuesday the committees didn’t report donations of at least $1,000 within 48 hours of receiving them. The donations did get reported later. The political action committee of the North Carolina Automobile Dealers Association received the largest fine at $3,500. The campaign of House Majority Leader Hugh Holliman received a $2,100 fine and Minority Leader Paul Stam’s committee got $1,500.
Prosecutor: Ex-Marine did not get help from wife CLINTON (AP) – A former Camp LeJeune Marine who was convicted of murdering a pregnant colleague did not get help from his wife in the killing or in eluding capture, a prosecutor said Tuesday, adding that the wife helped authorities track down and arrest her husband. District Attorney Dewey Hudson said Christina Laurean submitted to multiple interrogations and provided DNA samples, and was seen in public at times that cleared her of suspicion in the slaying of Lance Cpl. Maria Lauterbach in 2007. Christina Laurean also didn’t help her husband, Cesar, when he fled to his native Mexico weeks after clubbing Lauterbach to death with a crowbar and burning her corpse in a backyard firepit. Cesar Laurean was convicted of first-degree murder in August and sentenced to life in prison. Hudson said he decided to issue a statement be-
NC State formally installs Woodson as chancellor RALEIGH (AP) – North Carolina State University has formally installed its new chancellor. Chancellor Randy Woodson was celebrated at a ceremony Tuesday in Reynolds Coliseum. He said the university will pursue improvements despite tight budgets. Woodson was a provost at Purdue University when he was picked in January to lead the Raleigh campus. He started his job in April.
N.C. State has since dropped athletic director Lee Fowler after a 10-year run and dismissed a grievance filed last year by former first lady Mary Easley. Woodson succeeded James Woodward, who served as interim chancellor after the resignation of James Oblinger. Oblinger resigned amid questions over his role in the hiring of Easley, a controversy that also caused the school’s provost and trustee chairman to resign.

cause the Marine Corps had ordered Christina Laurean not to speak and she would not defend herself against accusations. Her husband’s defense attorney suggested during the trial that Christina Laurean might have been involved in the slaying. She is currently a defendant in a lawsuit filed over Lauterbach’s death. “There is no credible evidence that Christina Laurean was involved with the murder of Maria Lauterbach or assisted her husband in avoiding arrest,” Hudson said in a statement. “She cooperated with the law enforcement officers who investigated this brutal murder and assisted in the apprehension of Cesar Laurean.” Authorities had described Christina Laurean as a cooperating witness and never charged her with any crime. But her involvement in the case has never been fully explained. She chose not to testify at her husband’s murder trial.

NC officials, bankers unveil highway welcome signs Department is installing at the north and south borders of North Carolina on Interstate 95, Interstate 85, and U.S. Highway 17. The bankers say more than 400,000 North Carolina jobs are tied to military installations and defense firms. Eastern North Carolinaâ€™s installations include Camp Lejeune and two other Marine Corps bases, the Armyâ€™s Fort Bragg, Seymour Johnson and Pope Air Force Bases, and several Coast Guard stations.
RALEIGH (AP) â€“ New signs going up on the major highways entering eastern North Carolina are welcoming drivers to the regionâ€™s rich military heritage. New highway welcome signs unveiled Tuesday at the North Carolina National Guard headquarters in Raleigh tell motorists theyâ€™re arriving in the countryâ€™s most military-friendly state. The North Carolina Bankers Association paid for the signs, which the state Transportation
Gubernatorial candidates Democrat Vincent Sheheen (left) and Republican Nikki Haley debate on Monday with moderator Mark Quinn at SCETV studios in Columbia, S.C.
SC Democrats spend at least $100,000 on anti-Haley ads COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) â€“ South Carolina Democrats on Tuesday began countering ads the Republican Governorsâ€™ Association aired for weeks criticizing Vincent Sheheen in the race for governor against GOP nominee Nikki Haley. The Democratic Party is spending more than $100,000 on the statewide ad, said Jay Parmley, the partyâ€™s executive director. â€œWe got flat tired of Nikki lying about Vincent,â€? Parmley said. The ad is largely
a remake of ads Sheheen has aired for weeks critical of Haley and relies on some of the same images he used. In this case, they ask voters to call Haley instead of making a direct appeal for voters to pick Sheheen or vote against Haley. Because of that, itâ€™s not technically a campaign ad, although few viewers make that distinction. Republican Governorsâ€™ Association spokesman Mike Schrimpf did not immediately respond to questions about the groupâ€™s
spending or plans in South Carolina. The group was an early Haley backer and endorsed her before the primary runoff after she had nearly won outright. Haley has been a favorite of South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford, who was the RGAâ€™s chairman until resigning last year after revealing a yearlong affair with a woman from Argentina. South Carolinaâ€™s Republican Party has not aired ads for or against candi-
dates in races this year and hasnâ€™t decided whether to counter the Democratic Partyâ€™s ad, said Joel Sawyer, the partyâ€™s executive director. Haleyâ€™s campaign said the ads are just another attack. â€œAll the mudslinging attacks in the world canâ€™t cover up the fact that Vince Sheheen is a liberal who supports Obama health care and would do nothing to reform state government,â€? Haley spokesman Rob Godfrey said.
State establishes phone number for sterilization victims RALEIGH (AP) â€“ Government officials in North Carolina want to hear from people who say they were sterilized through a state program that ended almost 40 years ago. A state agency announced Tuesday a tollfree number for callers
to provide information and confirm the identification of someone who was sterilized under the authority of the North Carolina Eugenics Board. More than 7,600 people were sterilized by choice or coercion under the program between 1933 and 1973.
Callers will have to fill out a verification form. Gov. Beverly Perdue created a foundation designed to determine how to compensate victims. But thereâ€™s no money set aside right now for that assistance. The N.C. Justice for Sterilization Victims Foundation said
Dying woman celebrated holidays in a â€˜living wakeâ€™
ear Abby: I am a rabbi who was asked by a funeral director to talk with a family dealing with the wifeâ€™s terminal illness. When I met Mindy, I was touched by her bravery and sensitivity in confronting her disease. She shared that she and her family were taking charge of the calendar and moving all the holidays forward so they could squeeze in as many celebrations as possible in the coming weeks. Regardless of the actual date on the calendar, they were celebrating secular and religious holidays, birthdays and anniversaries. These events included decorating, serving the appropriate food associated with the obervance â€“ even wearing costumes for Halloween. On my last visit, Mindy described something else she had done. She invited relatives who lived far away to be with her and gave them quilts she had created over her lifetime. She remarked that it made sense for her to be able to say her goodbyes rather than miss that opportunity. She described it as a â€œliving wake.â€? A few weeks later, she was gone.
For Mindy, condensing the holidays gave her the ability to control her ADVICE medical situation Dear in a graAbby cious and â– â– â– innovative way. Her choice of saying goodbye to loved ones gave her â€“ and them â€“ time to heal any rifts that had occurred. In dealing with her own impending death, she bestowed a special gift to us for these upcoming holidays. Let loved ones know today how important they are to you. If there is a way of resolving a family disagreement, do it as soon as possible. Life is too short for many of these disagreements. Finally, appreciate and enjoy the time we have with family, relatives and friends. It is truly irreplaceable. â€“ Rabbi Albert Slomovitz
