DAVIDSON COUNTY – As the Davidson County Republican Party looks to take all of the local seats in the Nov. 2 election, the county’s Democratic Party is hoping to stay afloat. Currently, Davidson County Republicans hold all seats except for one on the sevenmember board of the Davidson County Board of Commissioners and the 81st House District of Lexington Democrat Hugh Holliman, the House majority leader. Now, Republicans hope to take the seat of commissioners’ Chairman Max Walser, who has decided not to seek re-election, and Holliman’s seat. Davidson County Republican Party Chairman Lance Barrett said his party has never held all of the county seats. He said this year’s election is “almost like a perfect storm” for his party to win all of the county’s races. Meanwhile, the Davidson County Democratic Party has been working hard with its slate of candidates, said party Chairman Roy Holman. He said the Davidson County Democratic Party is not taking this year’s election lightly. “I have been in politics for 16 years,” said Holman, a former three-time candidate for Davidson County sheriff. “I see as much energy right now as I have seen in my entire career of politics. We’ve got some new county commissioner candidates and a new Register of Deeds candidate. They are young, aggressive and have energy.” Holman said it’s important for Democrats to have representation in Davidson County. However, he does acknowledge how difficult it is for Democrats to be elected in the county, having run unsuccessfully for sheriff in 1998, 2002 and 2006. “I think we need to have both sides represented, but we just aren’t there,” he said. “We would certainly like to be.” Barrett said the Davidson County Democratic Party is “run by the more (people on the) left in” Davidson County. “Most Democrats in this county are conservative Democrats, but the people running their party are to the left end of the spectrum,” Barrett said. “I don’t

ELECTION ‘10: Polls crowded on last day of early voting. 1B OBITUARIES


DAVIDSON COUNTY – Four candidates, including two incumbents, are vying for two seats on the Davidson County Board of Education. Davidson County voters will have the opportunity to cast their ballots Tuesday for candidates C.L. Hackett and Jeannine Leonard, as well as incumbents Kenny Meredith and Carol Crouse. The race is nonpartisan. Crouse, who is finishing her second four-year term, has decided to seek re-election because “she loves every aspect of the educational process.” She is a former teacher in Davidson County who became a full-time stay-at-

think they represent the regular Democrats in this county.” Ruth Huneycutt, director of the Davidson County Board of Elections, said the county is composed of 101,822 registered voters. That number includes 46,953 Republicans, 21,915 unaffiliated, 32,778 Democrats and 176 Libertarian. Both parties hope unaffiliated voters will cast ballots their way. “When the donkey and the elephant start running down the track to win, we are outnumbered,” Holman said. “That’s why them elephants win, because there are just so many more of them.”

She has recently been a full-time volunteer in Davidson County schools. “We have been in a major construction period over the last eight years,” Crouse said. “We have built four elementary schools. We have done some remodeling, reroofing, and we are in the process of trying to work with our commissioners to get a new middle school and possibly a high school for the North Davidson/Ledford area of Davidson County. I really would like to see that through to conclusion.” Meredith is the longest standing member of the Davidson County Board of Education. He was first elected in 1996 and re-elected in 2000. He lost in his bid for re-elec-

tion in 2004, but was voted back into office in 2006. He has served 12 years on the school board. “I think there’s some unfinished business obviously in regard to facilities that we are dealing with, with Ledford/ North Davidson area, a new middle school and hopefully a high school,” Meredith said. “I think we’ve got to continue to watch over the Wallburg area with the growth we’ve had. I think in these troubling times we are in now budget-wise, especially with the state budget, I feel like my past 12 years of experience will serve the citizens.” “I’ve got a good relationship with our county commissioners, as well as our state and federal representation,” he added. “I feel

the grenade and disposed of it. Police say they don’t know if the grenade was live or how it ended up in the man’s yard.


Democrats keep trying



Shana Martin guides her son, Aaron Michael Martin, 3, as he cruises the streets of Chandler Oaks, a Eastwood development in McLeansville. Although the real estate crash has turned subdivisions nationwide into weedy ghost towns, Charlotte’s Eastwood Homes is selling dozens of new houses across the Triad and looking for land to build more.

ocrats are vying for four seats on the board. Incumbents Billy Joe Kepley, Sam Watford and Don Truell are seeking re-election, while Democrat Max Walser, the board’s chairman, has decided not to run. Other candidates include Republican Todd Yates and Democrats Ronald Swicegood, Jeff Switzer, Jason Hedrick and Kevin Williams. Lance Barrett, chairman of the Davidson County Republican Party, and Roy Holman, chairman of the Davidson County Democratic Party, said Williams and Swicegood filed to run, but have not been active in political events, such as candidate forums. Both chairmen said it was a blow to the Democratic Party by not having Max Walser, chairman of the Davidson County Board of Commissioners and former superintendent of Davidson County Schools, file again. “I’ll be honest with you,” Barrett said. “Even though he is a Democrat, a good commissioner, we’ve had no problems with (Walser). You are talking about superintendent of the county school system for years – very well respected. He’s not going to do anything stupid on that board of commissioners, so we didn’t have a problem with that one Democrat commissioner. “But there’s not any other Max Walsers floating around – definitely not on this year’s ticket for them. We look to take that seat back.” Holman said it may be hard for Democrats to replace Walser on the board, but says Hedrick and Switzer both have excellent qualities to be a commissioner. He said Hedrick, who is known for serving as general contractor for ABC’s “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” in Lexington last November, would do well as a commissioner because he’s smart and level-headed. He said Switzer is educated in the community college

ad. That means no longer buying vast fields of raw land to develop hundreds of houses without the first buyer in sight. That’s exactly what happened in eastern Guilford in the past decade, and many companies with big inventories went bankrupt as their financing evaporated in the meltdown. As hundreds of houses sit unsold in Greensboro, Eastwood is selling its mostly low-and mid-priced houses using a strategy that works for its investors, partners and customers. By snapping up bargain land, striking partnerships with businesses that are also hungry for work and pricing its houses as reasonably as possible, Eastwood hopes to lure more nervous consumers out of the shadows. Koons said the company stayed in business in the past three years by holding the line on its prices, offering incentives to customers and researching the kinds of houses that would sell at any given time.

Eastwood is one of a few still-healthy builders that remain in the game. It recently opened a design center in High Point for buyers to customize their homes before building. But this isn’t old-school tract development. “Most builders that have been able to stay in the

MCLEANSVILLE – The economic nightmare is far from over, but the American dream is still in business on the rolling hills of Chandler Oaks. Although the real estate crash has turned subdivisions nationwide into weedy ghost towns, Charlotte’s Eastwood Homes is selling dozens of new houses across the Triad and looking for land to build more. Eastwood and its partners are finding great deals on empty lots on streets to nowhere that they can tend with careful investing and customer service to grow unlikely profits in this market. “They basically made our dream come true – to own a home and to be a young couple starting out to achieve so much so soon,” said Ursula Glover, 27, who moved earlier this year into this eastern Guilford subdivision south of Interstate 40 with her husband Donell.

and knows what’s going on in Davidson County. Barrett and Holman agree that the race for the 81st House District between incumbent Hugh Holliman, the N.C. House majority leader, and Rayne Brown, a political newcomer, will be a tough race. Two years ago, Brown narrowly lost to Holliman. Holman said it will be tough for Brown to beat an incumbent in Holliman who has “done a lot of things that people are beginning to realize and recognize.” Barrett said Brown has “got an incredible amount of energized and motivated volunteers.” “She has walked this whole district, knocking on doors,” Barrett said. “Hugh doesn’t do that type of thing. A lot of his advertising comes across just a little desperate.” Holman said it’s hard to say if political newcomer Tommy Evans will be a contender against incumbent Republican Sheriff David Grice. He said he has heard good things about Evans and the race may be closer than what people think. Barrett said Grice’s primary win against former Sheriff Gerald Hege gives the incumbent momentum. “By him winning the primary as big as he did, he set sail,” Barrett said. “He is going to win big. There was a lot of Democrats who switched to unaffiliated because of all their history with Hege and voted against Hege in the primary.” The Davidson County Republican Party also is looking at getting incumbent David Rickard reelected against Gary Bowers. Other seats held by Republicans, including district attorney, clerk of superior court, as well as the N.C. House and N.C. Senate district seats, with the exception of the 81st House District seat, are unopposed.

Indonesian volcano unleashes biggest blast yet MOUNT MERAPI, Indonesia (AP) – Clouds of gray ash rumbled down the slopes of Indonesia’s most volatile volcano Saturday in its most powerful eruption of a deadly week, prompting soldiers to force reluctant villagers to evacuate amid fears of a larger blast. On the other side of the archipelago, storms again prevented aid deliveries to increasingly desperate survivors of a tsunami that killed 413 people in the Mentawai islands. Relief workers found some comfort, however, when

Another helicopter from the Dumontd’Urville scientific station in Antarctica flew to the site of the crashed aircraft and a doctor on board confirmed the deaths, the Australian Maritime Safety Authority said in a statement.

Afghanistan irked by Russian participation KABUL, Afghanistan – Afghanistan’s president said Saturday he had not been informed in advance of Russian participation in a NATO-led drug raid that netted $56 million worth of heroin and morphine, and his administration demanded a formal apology from the alliance. Hamid Karzai’s complaint was the latest evidence of his strained relationship with the U.S.-led coalition. It also underscored lingering sensitivities over Russian involvement in Afghanistan.

the number of missing dropped by half to 163 as searchers discovered more survivors and villagers who had fled to the hills and returned home. The simultaneous catastrophes have severely tested the emergency response network. Indonesia lies in the Pacific “Ring of Fire,� a cluster of fault lines prone to earthquakes and volcanic activity. Mount Merapi, which sprang back to life early this week, unleashed a terrifying 21-minute eruption early Saturday, followed by more than

350 volcanic tremors and 33 ash bursts, said Surono, chief of the Center for Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation. The latest spewing of the notoriously unpredictable volcano forced the temporary closure of an airport and claimed another life, bringing the death toll this week to 36. At least 47,000 people have fled the mountain’s wrath, according to the National Disaster Management Agency. Government camps well away from the base were overflowing with refugees.

Clinton pressures China over territorial disputes SANYA, China (AP) – U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on Saturday made a rare visit by an American official to a Chinese island once a flash point in relations between the powers and pressed Beijing to settle territorial disputes with its smaller, wary neighbors. T h e Obama administration’s top diplomat also urged Clinton Chinese officials to use their influence with North Korea to keep the communist country from taking any provocative actions that might disrupt a summit of world leaders set for South Korea next month. Clinton’s main goal, though, was to seek Chinese help in lowering tensions across East Asia and she proposed hosting a threeway meeting between the U.S., China and Ja-

pan to ease the latest regional flare-up: competing claims by China and Japan over East China Sea islands, a dispute that has soured ties between Beijing and Tokyo.

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) – President Barack Obama implored voters on Saturday to resist a Republican tide, warning that if the GOP prevails in Tuesday’s midterm elections all the progress of his first two years in office “can be rolled back.” That would be just fine, said Rep. John Boehner, in line to become the new speaker if Republicans take the House, as

expected. He declared, “Americans are demanding a new way forward in Washington.” Embarking on a fourstate weekend campaign dash, Obama acknowledged the difficulties Democrats face, the distinct chance of losing their comfortable majority in the House and possibly the Senate, as well as several governors’ seats.

Arrest in Yemen in bomb plot; more suspects sought WASHINGTON (AP) Yemeni authorities arrested a woman Saturday and searched for other suspects linked to al-Qaida’s Persian Gulf faction in the plot to mail bombs powerful enough to down a cargo plane. Officials said the woman was detained as part of a widening search for people believed to have used forged documents and ID cards in the plot thwarted Friday. Authorities on three continents scrambled to check planes from Philadelphia to central England, recovering two live explosive devices

addressed to two synagogues in Chicago. The dragnet in Yemen and the results of a preliminary investigation into one of the bombs in Britain reflected the seriousness of a plot that investigators said bore all the hallmarks of alQaida. Yemeni officials said the suspects were believed linked to al-Qaida in the Arab Peninsula, the group’s affiliate in the Persian Gulf. Yemen’s president, Ali Abdullah Saleh, told reporters that the U.S. and the United Arab Emirates had provided information that helped

identify the woman as a suspect. Two security officials told The Associated Press the woman was arrested in the al-Rawdah district near the airport in San’a, Yemen’s capital. “According to our information, a woman has sent the packages through the agents (companies),” Saleh said in his briefing. One of the Yemeni officials, a member of the country’s anti-terrorism unit and close to the Yemeni team probing the case, said the other suspects had been tied to al-Qaida’s faction in Yemen.

Last Bell city councilman in jail released on bail LOS ANGELES (AP) – The last Bell city councilman in jail for allegedly looting the working-class suburb was released on bail Friday after his girlfriend, son and son-in-law posted $260,000 that prosecutors agreed was not to the money he is accused of stealing. City Councilman George Mirabal was released shortly before 4 p.m., according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s inmate information website. Mirabal had been jailed since he and seven other current and former Bell officials were arrested on Sept. 21 and charged with multiple counts of misappropriating $5.5 million

in public funds. All have pleaded not guilty. Prosecutors say Mirabal and the others systematically looted the modest, working-class city for years in what District Attorney Steve Cooley called a case of “corruption on steroids.� With Mirabal’s release, only former Councilman Victor Bello remains in jail in lieu of $190K bail. Mirabal was freed following a bail hearing before Superior Court Judge Hilleri G. Merritt at which prosecutors agreed none of the collateral put up by his girlfriend and family was connected to the corruption scandal.

Curl, who was arrested by U.S. Marshals at a motel in Covington, La., has been extradited to Illinois and is being held at the DeKalb County Jail on $5 million bond. He was scheduled for an initial hearing Saturday morning at the DeKalb County Courthouse in Sycamore. Keller, of Plainfield, was last seen about noon Oct. 14 when friends said the art student was headed to a nearby park and nature preserve. Two days later, burned remains were found in the park, and a week later, forensic experts confirmed the remains were human. Police in DeKalb, a city 65 miles west of Chicago where the 25,000-student campus is located, still haven’t positively identified remains found in a park near the school

Election Day, which was announced Friday, had officials in neighboring communities worried about the massive traffic jams that might result from hordes of launch spectators and residents trying to vote. Spaulding said the latest delay gives shuttle team members “a little bit more breathing room� to get to the polls. Space agency managers had been urging workers to vote early to avoid interfering with work. Spaulding said the repairs and subsequent leak checks are expected to be done in time for a Wednesday launch.

as belonging to Keller, though they reclassified her case as a homicide investigation. Keller’s parents have little doubt they belong to their 18-year-old daughter, said the missing girl’s cousin, Mary Tarling. “There doesn’t seem to be an alternative explanation,� she said. Among the indications the remains are Keller’s is that her camera and sketch pad were found nearby, Tarling said, citing what police have told the family. A talented watercolor painter and nature lover, Keller may have headed to the wooded park just south of the campus to take pictures or sketch drawings for an art project, Tarling said.

FABULOUS, FRIVOLOUS Nugentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s SD FAMOUS, --pheasant hunt Jets hostessâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; TV show may be afoul thrown off the air of game law NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Jenn SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Rocker and celebrity hunter Ted Nugent may have run afoul of South Dakota game laws by shooting pheasants after some of his hunting privileges were revoked in California. Nugent S o u t h Dakota honors other statesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; license revocations through the Interstate Wildlife Violator Compact, and a state law doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t differentiate between large game, such as deer, and small game, such as pheasant. Nugentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deer hunting license was revoked on Aug. 13.

Stergerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s TV show has been thrown off the air. The former New York Jets hostess has been featured in â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Daily Line,â&#x20AC;? but Versus has canceled the irreverent sports show for low ratings. Its run ends Thursday. Sterger manager Phil Reese told The Associated Press on Friday the decision is â&#x20AC;&#x153;unfortunateâ&#x20AC;? but â&#x20AC;&#x153;part of the business.â&#x20AC;? Sterger allegedly was sent lewd photos and inappropriate text messages by Brett Favre when he was the Jetsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; quarterback in 2008. Sterger has not yet met with NFL investigators, although her manager has said she is leaning toward doing so.

Final stretch


GUILFORD COUNTY – For Greensboro residents Talmadge and Chiquita Alexander, local issues like the proposed quarter-cent sales tax hike that’s on the ballot this election season are the reasons the couple voted early on Saturday. “What brought us out was the sales tax hike and the Senate races,” Talmadge Alexander said while waiting his turn to vote at Jamestown Town Hall. “Jobs and the economy concern us a little bit, but we’re concerned mostly about education and what’s going on with the teachers and the sales tax.”


Voters wait in line to cast their ballots Saturday at Jamestown Town Hall. The Alexanders were two of dozens of people waiting in a line wrapped around the building on the last day of early voting. Voting sites saw a seemingly large voter turnout at the Jamestown location and other voting

sites in Guilford County, including the Roy B. Culler Jr. Senior Center in High Point, reported the Guilford County Board of Elections Office. Elections officials reported 45,162 voters have cast

ballots early, including 1,017 who have registered during early voting. In comparison, the county had 16,731 voters in 2006 and 9,717 in 2002. Voters were waiting at Jamestown Town Hall on Saturday when it opened at


---10 a.m. The polls closed at 1 p.m., but Tim Tsuji, early voting director, said locations like the senior center stayed open at least one hour longer to exhaust the long lines. Voters who arrived by 1 p.m. still were allowed to vote. The next chance to vote is on Election Day on Nov. 2. Glen Epperson, another Greensboro resident who voted at the Jamestown site, said the quarter-cent sales tax also was one issue he was concerned about this election season. He also said he took his time to study each candidate this year because he’s grown tired of political smearing and advertisements on TV. “You really need to do your research these days and know where each candidate is on the issues,” he said. “It’s important to do that and vote every (election).” | 888-3617

HIGH POINT – Retiring Commissioner Steve Arnold will not apply for a new top Guilford County job supervising construction and land use. “I will not consider nor will I allow myself to be considered for the position,” the High Point Republican said Friday in a statement. Arnold could not be reached Saturday for further comment. State law would allow Arnold, a contractor and developer, to take the job after his tenure ends later this year. Arnold decided not to seek re-election after 20 years on the Guilford County Board of Commissioners. Arnold ran his own development company until 2007 when he and the company filed for bankruptcy. Arnold earlier said the position was “a good idea” because the planning director position has been vacant since the 2008 death of Greg Niles who earned $105,000 a year. The new director would replace the planning director position and oversee the facilities and property management departments. Some people have been concerned that the job was created for Arnold, a longtime political ally of County Manager Brenda Jones-Fox. The manager and Arnold have denied discussing the job. “I have heard from the people also that the job was created at the wrong time and that it was created for Steve,” Commissioner John Parks said. “There is that suspicion out there in the public.” Parks, of High Point, said there could be six votes on the board to instruct JonesFox to drop the position. “The manager created this position,” Parks said. “I hope there are six votes not to do it. She could also withdraw it.” | 888-3626

Washington Street comes to life for Fall Festival Community also celebrates opening of new cultural center BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – The Washington Street Historic District Fall Festival kicked off Saturday with the opening of a new cultural center and a larger crowd compared to last year’s festival, according to organizers. City leaders and festivalgoers gathered for the ribbon cutting of the Changing Tides Cultural Center at 613 Washington St. when the festival opened at 11 a.m. Vendors and booths were scattered down the street for the event, which spread to Yalik’s Modern Art at 1113 E. Washington St. Patrick Harman, of the nonprofit Hayden-Harman Foundation that purchased the building in March and turned it into a cultural center, said the project was meant to inspire other de-

velopers to invest in the area. The foundation does most of its work in High Point and Alamance County, but this is its biggest project yet in the city. “We want to bring attention to the area and be a part of revitalization,” Harmon said. “We wanted to be the catalyst that will inspire other developers to

‘We want to bring attention to the area and be a part of revitalization.’ Patrick Harman Hayden-Harman Foundation come to the area and do something like this.” A High Point native, Harman also said the project was special to him because his great-grandparents lived near the neighborhood. The cultural center will house five organizations: the HaydenHarman Foundation, the High Point Fine Art Guild, the City Project’s satellite office, Word of Reconciliation Church, and a


project comprised of High Point University students majoring in non-profit management. City Project Chairman Aaron Clinard said at the ribbon cutting the cultural center was a symbol of success in the city’s efforts to revitalize the Washington Street neighborhood, which was once the heart of the city’s African-American community. “To have this free space available where a lot of money was spent to come up with the master plan to revitalize the area, it’s a great day for us,” Clinard said. Organizers also said the sprawl of the festival, the number of vendors and the crowd seemingly had grown compared to the first festival, which was organized by Yalik’s Modern Art owner Phyllis Bridges. Several other sponsors stepped in to help this year. “We want it to grow and grow every year,” Bridges said about the event. “With all of the funding that the city put into (Washington Street), it’s a good idea to keep this festival around every year.” | 888-3617

DURHAM (AP) – Duke University officials say a student found dead last week likely fell into a recessed stairwell. Duke spokesman Michael Schoenfeld told The Herald-Sun that investigators think 21-year-old Drew Everson may have been walking to his off-campus home after 3 a.m. Oct. 22 when he fell down the steps near an East Campus building. Authorities say Everson was still alive when a university worker found him several hours later, but died after two days in the hospital. Schoenfeld says investigators are waiting for toxicology test results from the medical examiner to try to answer why Everson might have stumbled into the stairwell.

Another Success Story “I would surely come back.... I love the people over here...” Catherine “Billie” Tuttle, a resident of High Point, NC came to Triad Care & Rehab after she fractured her arm. While living independently at Sharon Towers, Billie says “I was walking thru the living room & my legs gave way & I fell on my right arm.” Billie would require inpatient rehab services to strengthen her arm. “Those guys who helped me with my exercises were great.” Billie continued to describe the wonderful things that Triad Care & Rehab had done for her. “I was worried about how this place would be, but now I’m glad I didn’t go anywhere else. The people here are so nice & friendly, the food was always good & its just a very nice place to be.

Candidates seek help on final weekend RALEIGH (AP) – The major-party candidates for U.S. Senate in North Carolina are crossing the state on the final weekend before Election Day to meet voters and urge their parties’ members to keep working. Republican incumbent Richard Burr and Democratic challenger Elaine Marshall scheduled several campaign appearances across the state Saturday, which was also the last day for early voting. Burr was scheduled to begin his day in Pinehurst, then travel to Albemarle, Monroe, Cornelius, Catawba and Lincolnton. Marshall planned to start with breakfast in Burr’s hometown of WinstonSalem, then move to Greensboro, Burlington, Durham, Raleigh and Robeson County. Libertarian Michael Beitler planned to canvass voters in Guilford County.




Mental health provider closes, hundreds in limbo FAYETTEVILLE (AP) – Hundreds of employees and patients of a Fayetteville mental health services provider are wondering what’s next after the company suddenly closed while owing the IRS back taxes. Multiple media organizations reported Friday the sudden closure this week of Preferred Alternatives leaves about 600 people in eastern North Carolina without counselors and therapists. Preferred Alternatives filed for bankruptcy in 2005 under a debt of about $18 million in federal payroll taxes. Justice Department attorney Neal Fowler said Thursday that Preferred Alternatives owes more than $10 million.

Third World missionaries get low-tech training LINEVILLE, Ala. (AP) – In a rural nook of east Alabama where there aren’t enough bright lights to blot out the stars at night, missionaries and community leaders from foreign lands are learning to save lives in the Third World not just with Bibles, but with mud, sand and leaves. Located off a winding highway, an organization called Servants in Faith and Technology has offered training for three decades on how to use common items to improve and extend lives in

underdeveloped nations. On a recent day in October, 19 trainees from 10 countries learned how to make efficient, cleanburning cook stoves from mud bricks. The small, boxy structures replace open fires that the World Health Organization blames for 1.6 million deaths annually in the world’s poorest countries. On other days they’ll learn how used tires can become the foundation for gardening systems that use only a little water. They’ll find out how


sand can be used as a filter to rid drinking water of dangerous parasites. They’ll see how the ground-up leaves of some tropical plants contain enough nutrients to save the life of a malnourished child. Raphael Ogbole, 42, says low-tech solutions like the mud-brick stoves, which cut back noxious smoke, can have an enormous impact in his native Nigeria, where he works as a Christian missionary on the Mambilla Plateau in the northeastern part of the country.

LEONARD PITTS: On race, culture, we should listen before we judge. TOMORROW

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


Sales tax hike proposal draws yeas and nays Guilford commissioners should seek more efficiencies I have been reviewing your Oct. 6 front-page story about the kickoff of “The Quarter Cent Makes Sense” campaign. The story was almost squeezed off the page by the large color photograph of the committee members standing in front of one of the “Vote Yes” billboards. Does the billboard artist’s decision to decapitate the Great Emancipator make an unintentional statement about the racial impact of the proposed sales tax hike? Jim Morgan told the assembled upper tier of the rich and famous that the bonds approved in 2008, when fully issued, would add eight cents to the property tax rate. You mean there are bonds that haven’t been issued? Lawyering is about remedies, and a legend in lawyering like Morgan ought to know that the remedy for deeper holes is a forbearance from digging. Morgan is not a county commissioner and consequently possesses no power to add or subtract that eight cents. Even the 11 who do possess that power can make no promises beyond their own terms of office. And as I told you in 2008, the one promise that no politician can truthfully make is that he will be elected to another term. Here is some of what Skip Alston had to say at the end of your Oct. 6 story: “We have cut our budget and have not passed a property tax increase in two years. I think the people have seen that we are more efficient.” How many of those efficiencies would have gone undiscovered if the voters had approved the quarter cent two years ago? What new marvels of frugality will the commissioners demonstrate if they are put to the test again? If the voters consent to the hike, they will lose their leverage. BARNEY W. HILL Thomasville

Vote yes for sales tax; it’s fair taxation Guilford County taxpayers are approaching a crucial moment this Election Day. We must decide how to pay for the $651 million in bonds voters approved in 2008. Whatever your stance is on the various issues those bonds addressed, the simple fact is that the bills are now due. As the county continues to cut its budget, it has become clear that belt-tightening alone is an

Oakview, Shadybrook, Johnson Street, Northwood and many other schools that are definitely in the city of High Point. He does not represent Andrews, but he should certainly take their needs into consideration, since they are also in the city of High Point. It is time to put all of the students in Guilford County first. It is time to treat all students fairly in the distribution of money, talent and resources. It is time for Ed Price. DIAN ROWAN High Point



This recession is no time for sales tax increase We do not need another sales tax. We just had one from Raleigh. Things are getting to a point now that once one thing goes up, everything else follows suit. There is no need to give the county anymore money because

they do not know how to manage the money they have now. It is time to hold those county commissioners who spend freely our hard earned dollars accountable for every dollar they spend. This money does not belong to them and they do not lift a finger to earn it. This money belongs to the taxpayers and should be used for things that clearly benefit the taxpayer, not a bunch of people looking for a free handout. The county commissioners may also want to think about cutting some of worthless expenditures like cutting the salaries of those persons holding positions where they do little or nothing. In closing, we cannot afford another tax hike in this recession as it is hard enough for the average man to make a living for his family; we just can’t afford more taxes. So please vote no to the tax hike. STEVEN M. SHELTON Greensboro

Price is students’ candidate, not the establishment’s It can never again be said by Garth Hebert that Ed Price is the candidate of the “High Point Establishment” since the Enterprise chose to endorse Hebert for school board. That means that Price must be the candidate of the students. Since Price was 13 years old, he has worked for the children of this area. He mowed lawns and gave all the money to inner city youth organizations to purchase sports equipment. He works tirelessly for any cause involving children. He never asks for recognition or praise. He works behind the scenes to make life better for all children. He will bring this same passion for children to the school board. Hebert’s district covers a number of High Point schools. He represents High Point Central and Ferndale Middle. He represents

school board seat I have known Garth Hebert for several years. He is a man of utmost integrity and fairness. He has worked diligently for the past four years to bring stability and unity to our schools, particularly in District 2. Being a CPA, Hebert possesses both the knowledge and experience it takes to interpret and adjust school budgets as necessary to meet the difficult fiscal challenges we face. He has managed to keep this administration both accountable and transparent. He has the best interest of all the parents and children that he serves. He has proven this over and over again. Hebert has not only helped District 2, but he has worked tirelessly for all of our children as various needs arose. When Eastern Guilford High suffered from a devastating fire several years ago, Hebert was one first board members on the scene offering his assistance. Under Terry Grier, when school supplies were in short supply, Hebert came to the rescue. Hebert has a warm heart when it comes to our children, but is tough when it comes to keeping the school administration accountable. On the other hand, what can I say about his opponent, Ed Price? He sells real estate. He has High Point business connections. And above all, he sure has tons of real estate signs out there. With this much property to manage, could Price possibly ever have the countless hours left it takes to serve on the school board? Is a real estate background what we need to serve our educational community? Stability, honesty, accountability, transparency, diligence, a proven track record – this is what we need. This is what you have in Hebert. Let’s move forward together. Vote for Garth Hebert! BARBARA ANN MCABEE Jamestown


Smothers is best to lead through tough times


Founded in 1883

Elect Hebert for District 2 insufficient remedy. Nobody likes taxes, but it’s inevitable that taxes are going to pay for these bonds. We have two choices: We could ask Guilford County’s property owners to carry the burden entirely in the form of an estimated 8-cent property tax increase. Or we could take the wiser and more fair course: Raise our sales tax by one-fourth of one cent. That means every purchase of four dollars would increase by a single penny. A purchase of $100 would cost you an extra 25 cents. Essential goods like gasoline, unprepared food and prescription medications would be excluded from the increase. While property taxes are still likely to increase if the quartercent sales tax is approved, the $12 million raised annually would mean that the hit on county property owners won’t be nearly as hard because everyone who uses Guilford’s infrastructure will be paying their fair share. As an added benefit, an estimated 40 percent of this increase would be paid by non-residents, making the quarter-cent sales tax a great deal for those of us who call Guilford County home. We all stand to gain from the projects funded by these bonds. When you go to the polls on Nov. 2, ask yourself one key question: Why should only some of us pay for it? Vote for fair taxation on Election Day and vote yes to the quarter-cent sales tax. BILL GUILL Greensboro The writer is the 2010 President of the Greensboro Regional Realtors Association.


ecky Smothers has served two stints totaling 13 years as High Point’s mayor since 1992 and has done so with distinction. She has two challengers, one a community activist who has run a eye-and-ear-catching campaign by focusing on economic development, quality of life, protecting taxpayers’ money and having a vision for the future. The other identifies himself as Moorish American and a citizen of the “Washitaw Nation” and claims to have been arrested 17 times in High Point and has a lawsuit against the city for violation of his rights. The serious challenger is Jay Wagner, a 42-year-old attorney who has served two terms as chairman of the High Point Planning & Zoning Commission, five years as vice chairman of The City Project and currently heads the Uptowne High Point Association. Wagner, with his four-point

An independent newspaper

plan, wants city government to take “a more comprehensive and focused approach to economic development; help provide the amenities of life that other cities of equal size have – the shopping, the parks, the events, the interesting gathering places where daily life takes place and culture and community can grow and thrive; be more prudent in property purchases and to chart a new path.” He claims High Point hasn’t changed its playbook in more than a decade, and he favors more out-of-the-box thinking. The other challenger, Dwayne Hemingway-el, has run a campaign that appears to be more about embarrassing the city than planning to cure its ills. He has cited “minorities not being looked after” and the need to “bring in new energy,” lower taxes on small businesses and do more for the city’s youth – “it’s all about the children.”

Even with blows the global, national and state economies have dealt High Point, Smothers, 71, rightfully points out that “there were 1,405 new jobs created or announced in 2009,” the local economy has been diversified, more vacant buildings are being leased, the city’s population growth percentage tops both Greensboro and Winston-Salem, the median household income in High Point also outpaces both Winston-Salem and Greensboro by more than $3,000 and economic development achievements continue to gain national awards and recognition. The city hasn’t had a tax increase in three years and, with revenues decreasing, expenses were cut by $16 million in this year’s budget. Although active and respected in such regional and statewide organizations as Piedmont Triad Partnership, N.C. League of Municipalities, Piedmont Triad Council of Governments and Metropoli-


tan Mayors in addition to previous service on the N.C. Board of Transportation, Smothers also remains heavily involved in a wide variety of local activities, is easily approachable and turns to the task when something needs to be done to correct situations gone awry. And, she plans to organize a community congress to put the needs and desires of folks at the grass roots level – throughout the city – in the spotlight. Wagner knows well where he wants to take the city if he’s elected mayor, but he hasn’t articulated specifics about how he’s going to get there, especially in the economic climate the city will experience over the next couple of years. Meanwhile, Smothers has the knowledge, experience, strong will and necessary political savvy to lead through the budgetary and economic minefields that lie ahead. She’s the best choice for mayor.

Can any unaffiliated candidates across state win?


n interesting trend in this year’s elections has been unnoticed and unreported; the record number of candidates running as “Unaffiliated,” both on the state and national level. In 12 N.C. counties, an unaffiliated candidate is running for sheriff, one is running for Congress and three legislative candidates chose not to be connected to any political party. Not only were these numbers much smaller in past elections but being unaffiliated was tantamount to sure defeat. But this year, some are serious challengers. The obvious questions are why so many have chosen this route and whether they stand a chance of winning? There are several reasons why someone runs as an unaffiliated candidate. In at least one of this year’s sheriff races,

there are racial undertones, but age, sex or geographic considerations could also be factors. In other instances the incumMY SPIN bent might not win the primary Tom nomination, Campbell opting instead to ■■■ run as unaffiliated. We’ve seen this frequently in national contests. Sometimes, as the race develops, it becomes obvious that the party nominee isn’t desirable or electable, but in a growing number of instances the unaffiliated candidate just doesn’t want identification with either political party. This was certainly the case with Ross Perot’s presidential campaign of 1992.

There is real discontent toward Democrats and Republicans. Almost 24 percent of all N.C. voters are now registered as Unaffiliated, up about 1.5 percent since January of 2009. Democrats account for 44.6 percent of registered voters, down 1 percent, and Republicans total 31.5 percent, down almost one-half a percent since the start of 2009. The Tea Party movement is one evidence of that discontent. Our state makes it difficult to place a new political party on the statewide ballot, but legislation passed in 1967 makes it somewhat easier and more attractive to run as Unaffiliated. The Unaffiliated candidate does not file during the traditional filing window, since he or she will not be involved in a primary challenge. Unaffiliated candidates can wait

until both Democrats and Republicans have chosen their nominees before deciding to file. This year the deadline in county elections was June 25. Neither are they required to change their current party registration. To be placed on the ballot, an unaffiliated candidate must obtain valid signatures of 2 percent of registered voters in a county election or 4 percent of voters in a designated district or statewide contest. That is not an easy task, but neither is it insurmountable, especially if voters determine they don’t like either party’s nominee. Carrying a party’s banner has traditionally been considered a major advantage in both fundraising and getting out the vote, however more are questioning the net benefit of being a party nominee. This

growing trend can only signal the increased acceptance by candidates and voters, who willingly sign their petitions to be placed on the ballot. One of the things to watch in Tuesday’s election is whether any unaffiliated candidates win, but perhaps a better indicator might be the closeness of their contests. Handicappers are giving few of the unaffiliated candidates a strong chance of winning this year, but the winds of change are most certainly blowing and are a predictor of shifting political power in North Carolina.

More Your View over these past two years that we do a knee-jerk move and elect Elaine Marshall, we will have elected someone just like the liberal agenda who caused all this mess. I say stand up for the good representatives that we have had and vote out the bad ones! And while we are at it, let’s prepare to elect a president in 2012 that remembers how to hold his right hand over his heart when the national anthem is played and who can remember the word “Creator” in his speeches and who is not ashamed to declare that this was, always has been and still is a Christian nation under God!

Briggs seeks soil, water conservation district post My name is Ray Briggs and I am asking for your vote for Soil and Water Conservation District Supervisor. I have never run for office before. I have no political agenda, and if elected, I intend to serve one term only. I was born in High Point, graduated from Ragsdale High School and I have a bachelor of science degree from High Point University. I am retired after serving 35 years with UPS. I am a candidate for this office because I only want to serve the people of Guilford County. This position has no salary and does not set policy. If elected, I would like to increase public awareness about what the Soil and Water District does. I would like to encourage homeowners and businesses to apply for funds for projects that would conserve water, reduce pollutants and prevent soil erosion. I would consider all decisions made as a District Supervisor with thoughtfulness, fairness and impartiality. I ask for your consideration when voting. Thank you. Ray Briggs High Point

Your conservative vote is

Gunn and Burr political ads

needed to help this nation

are the most dishonest

We have an important election this week. If you believe in this nation as the nation that the Founding Fathers did, the nation that so many have died for and helped to defend ... If you believe in the freedoms that we have and not in the beliefs of an individual who thinks this nation needs to turn into what his vision is and his agenda ... Then you will not vote for those who will be nothing but a rubber stamp for all of his agenda and his spend, spend, spend the taxpayers’ hard-earned money on all of his try to buy votes programs. If you believe in life for unborn babies, that marriage is between a man and a woman, that this nation was founded on godly principles and still is a Judeo-Christian nation ... If you believe that if a person works hard and is successful, he deserves the fruits of his labors ... If you believe you shouldn’t be told by the government that you have to buy something or you will be monetari-

Of all the political ads running on television, the two most dishonest ads are by Rick Gunn and Richard Burr. Rick Gunn’s ads say that the government is keeping business from growing and that we need to get the government off our backs. What government laws are keeping businesses from growing? OSHA laws? Environmental laws? Identity theft laws? Laws enforcing safe meat and medicine? Laws preventing felons from owning firearms? Old Rick can’t name one law that is preventing businesses from growing unless he is talking about laws the keep illegal businesses, such as organized crime, from expanding. Dishonest Rick says that we need to get the government off our backs. That was what the Hollywood dunce Ronald Reagan said when he was running for the White House in 1980. Three days after becoming president, Reagan signed an executive order for the CIA to spy on Americans in this country. Spying on Americans was just another way to put the government on the back of American citizens.

Burr wants the people Sen. Burr’s rocking chair ads appeared to have professional actors following written scripts that he gave them. One of the men in a rocking chair mentioned the federal deficit, implying that Burr was against it. Burr supported George W. Bush’s budgets which created the deficit; and if Burr goes back to Congress for a second term, he will vote for more deficits. When you hear dishonest politicians like Gunn and Burr talk about government spending, be weary. They are not talking about cutting military spending which is highly inflated. They are talking about cutting Social Security and Medicare payments to needy people. MICKEY COLBERT Sophia

Let’s throw out all of the bad representatives, keep the good Many of my Democrat and Republican friends over the past couple of years have said to me, “We need to throw them all out,” when referring to the representatives in the coming election. I have had to say, wait a minute. We are supposed to be intelligent people and voters. Can we not do due diligence and research our representative’s voting records before we just throw them all out? Some of our representatives have been standing up for good values and economic good sense all through these last two trying years. Howard Coble continues to stand up for what is right and good for our country. So has Richard Burr. In Burr’s case, if we are so angry

to help turn nation around Sen. Richard Burr hit the nail right on the head when he appeared on William Friday’s North Carolina People, on UNC-TV Oct. 22. Burr was relaxed and able to show his real self on the show without someone there trying to assassinate his character. He got a lot of mail and calls from people expressing their real reasons why they are voting for other candidates, other than Democrats. Burr pointed out: “People are worried, scared, concerned, about what tomorrow will bring. They see something in America worth saving. They are concerned about their children and grandchildren.” He said: “It’s going to take the American people becoming more involved in our government to turn it around. When we exclude the American people in the process, we’re going to have problems.” Richard said after he got re-elected he and other Republicans would be open to suggestions from the people in giving suggestions and participating in helping us turn this country around. I am going to take him up on it after the elections, hoping he wins so we and I, and all of us can put our heads together to help turn our country around and get it back on track. I am nonpartisan, not either party, and I think Burr is open to taking suggestions and help from us, we, the people. So, if you want to make your vote count and become participants in our country again, please consider voting for Burr and others like him. You already saw what the Democrats have in mind for our government. CAMILLE FADIA Greensboro

I don’t like what politics in this nation has become BY WAYNE QUIGLEY


onsider this: Your company’s CEO is retiring soon, and you decide to apply for his job. Despite fierce competition, the shareholders choose you as the new CEO. Even before your job starts, the other candidates and their supporters immediately start questioning your qualifications while demanding that you be fired immediately. After you take over, the losers challenge, distort and

ridicule every move you and your managers make while telling everyone that you will ruin the company. This forces you to spend most of your time defending yourself, instead of running the company. Despite this, you still manage to turn the company around, avoid bankruptcy and clean up part of your predecessor’s financial mess. Company stock rises, people previously downsized are rehired, and new positions are created daily.



Yet the lies and accusations continue. Your opponents are willing to bankrupt the company believing that if they make you look bad, then one day they will get the job and all will be right with the world. Who are you? You are the current president of the United States. Right now, it is my fellow Republicans who are tearing

this country apart, out of some misguided and unfounded fear of the “other guys.” Sadly, I see this pattern being repeated by the Democrats when the Republicans get back into office. This never-ending cycle is getting worse, and will be what ruins this country. Not the terrorists, not the illegal immigrants, not some other country. It will be us that brings this country down, not them. Perhaps it’s time to give the elected people a chance to do

the jobs they were hired to do. Then, if and when they fail, then we vote them out at the next election instead of forcing them to devote their time dealing with attackers who will never be happy, no matter what. Me?

Moogfest kicked off on Friday in Asheville with more than 60 acts performing in honor of

the late electronic music inventor Robert Moog. He created the Moog synthesizer in the early 1960s, which revolutionized performing and recording. Performers include Massive Attack and Big Boi, half of the rap duo OutKast. Electro-pop giant Devo dropped out

MEET THE CANDIDATES: Profiles of political hopefuls. 2C (336) 888-3617

Best wheels Toyota, Honda lead quality rankings as GM makes gains DETROIT (AP) — The most problem-free cars and trucks are made by Honda and Toyota, but U.S. automakers Ford and General Motors are closing the gap in quality, according to an annual survey by Consumer Reports magazine. Ford and GM continue to narrow the disparity that once separated Asiabased automakers from their Detroit rivals. Large overhauls of American car companies in the last few years have resulted in fewer brands and better vehicles from Detroit. For the third year in a row, Toyota’s Scion had the fewest problems of any brand in the survey. It was followed by Porsche, Acura, Honda, and Nissan’s Infiniti luxury brand. The Toyota brand ranked sixth, down

from third last year. It was followed by Subaru and Volvo. Lexus, which had been a top finisher in past years, fell to ninth. Ford was 10th, but rose from 16th the previous year. Consumer Reports rankings, released Tuesday, are widely used by buyers shopping for cars and trucks. The magazine ranks No. 3 on the list of information sources used by Americans to pick vehicles, topped only by brand loyalty and recommendations from friends and family. Scion, Toyota’s youth brand, was tops because it sells just three models, the xD hatchback, xB wagon and tC coupe. Those models haven’t been revamped recently. As a result, they have fewer reliability problems, said David Champion, senior

director of auto testing for Consumer Reports. Toyota generally fared well in the survey despite recalling more than 10 million vehicles worldwide for safety problems including sticky gas pedals, floor mats that can trap accelerators and brake fluid leaks. “Toyota’s taken a slight knock from the issues with their recalls,” Champion said. He said the magazine’s survey asks owners to ignore recalls unless they have experienced a problem, easing the impact. Toyota’s luxury brand, Lexus, has expanded its model lineup and the quality has slipped, he said. The survey of about 960,000 of the magazine’s subscribers also restored recommended ratings for eight recalled Toyota brand models. Toyota in January recalled 2.3 million vehicles in the U.S. due to sticky gas pedals, including the 200910 RAV4 crossover, 2009-10




Consumer Reports on Tuesday released predicted quality rankings for 2011 vehicles based on past performance. Here are the winners in each vehicle segment: • Small cars: Toyota Yaris • Family cars: Ford Fusion Hybrid • Coupes/convertibles: Volvo C70 • Upscale cars: Acura TL • Luxury cars: Acura RL • Two-seat sports cars: Porsche Boxster • Sporty cars: Ford Mustang • Small SUVs: Honda CR-V • Upscale compact SUVs: Acura RDX • Midsize SUVs: Toyota FJ Cruiser • Large SUVs: Ford Flex (EcoBoost) • Luxury SUVs: Lexus LX • Wagons: Subaru Outback • Minivans: Toyota Sienna • Compact pickups: Honda Ridgeline • Full-size pickups: Toyota Tundra (V6 engine)

Corolla, the 2009-10 Matrix hatchback, the 2005-10 Avalon, the 2007-10 Camry, the 2010 Highlander crossover, the 2007-10 Tundra pickup and the 2008-10 Sequoia SUV models. It stopped selling the models until the vehicles on dealer lots were fixed.

When sales were halted, Consumer Reports yanked the recommended ratings. Champion said Honda is the top manufacturer for reliability, with the Honda and Acura brands consistently at the top of the survey.

Shop focuses on quality, US-made products BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – Gretchen Wright has a stylish flair for just about anything in the world of fashion – from home accessories to purses and jewelry. But, as a native of the furniture city, she said she also has standards when it comes to fashion and prefers high-quality, domestically manufactured products. “I try to fill the store with a lot of jewelry lines from North Carolina artists,” said Wright, co-owner of Wright Choices in Millis Square on N. Main Street along with her mother, Randee Jones. “We have a handbag line made here in the states that’s wonderful. Quality – that’s what I want people to come back to.” An interior designer by trade, Wright opened her store one year ago to focus on selling home accessories and interior design services. It was her love for fashion and the requests of her customers, however, that led her to add other items like handbags and personalized stationery to her shelves. Her career experience in retail probably had something to do with that as well. Before opening her current shop, she operated a similar store in Raleigh. She’s also managed a children’s boutique and worked at Monkee’s of Wilmington, a clothing boutique that has since opened locations across the state.


Gretchen Wright sits in her shop surrounded by the many gift items she sells. Growing up in High Point has given her an appreciation for made-inthe-USA items, especially furniture, but her occupation as a designer also has given her some insight into the industry. “I’m passionate about the issue because I’ve seen a huge decline in quality when it comes to items from overseas,” said Wright, who became a designer in 2000. “It isn’t every (imported) item, but it’s a lot that are of lower quality now.” Besides her own beliefs, customers also have requested domestically manufactured items. In fact, that’s where she gets most of the ideas for new inventory. “Especially in this economy, customers appreciate items made here,” she

said. “We’ve just grown by listening to our customers in the last year. If someone tells me they saw a neat thing in New York and want me to get it, I’ll say, ‘Sure, I’ll try.’ Where the market is, that’s where you have to go.” Her in-laws own the

historic Millis Square where the shop is located, and she said that’s another thing that sets it apart from big box stores. It’s located at the front entrance of the building in what once was the foyer and living room of the home.


And her price points are affordable, she added. “That’s one of the reasons for opening,” she said. “You could only find cheap home accessories or off the chart prices around here. There was nothing to fit that middle budget. It’s segwayed into gifts because home accessories can be looked at as gifts.” There are no plans for expansion at this time, but there are plans to amp up the in-house production of Wright’s personal stationery for the holidays and prepare for another successful year. “I just want to be the place to shop in High Point,” she said. “That’s kind of the feedback we’re getting.” | 888-3617

NEW YORK (AP) – Barnes & Noble Inc. is introducing a new Nook e-reader with a color touch screen for $249 as competition among e-reader makers heats up ahead of the holidays. The Nookcolor can be used for reading digital books, magazines, newspapers and children’s books. It ups the competition for e-readers and is making a run at Apple’s iPad with features such as games, music, web access and its own applicaiton store. It runs on Google Inc.’s Android operating system. The company said it will begin shipping in midNovember. E-readers are expected to be popular holiday gifts. Competition has exploded over the past year with new models and price cuts for Amazon. com’s Kindle and offerings from Kobo, Sony and others all competing against tablet computers such as the iPad. The current Nook offers color on the bottom half of its dual screen display, but not in the screen where the book is displayed.

HIGH POINT â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Chris Whitley is seeking reelection to the Ward 5 seat on the High Point City Council. Married with two children, he works in a family business, S.E.

Whitley and Son, as a partner, a company that was started in 1946 by Whitley his grandfather. A graduate of T. Wingate Andrews High School, he attended college at Elon College and N.C. State University. He is active with Oakview Baptist Church and was involved

in helping bring WinstonSalem State University football to High Point. During the holidays he works with His Laboring Few Ministries at Carter Brothers delivering meals to the needy. Q: What role can and should the city play in economic development and job creation, and where do you see incentives fitting into that effort? A: The current EDC policy has worked attracting small, medium

Barnes points to track record in re-election bid ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

GUILFORD COUNTY â&#x20AC;&#x201D; BJ Barnes is seeking re-election as sheriff of Guilford County. A resident of the Summerfield area, he has served as the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sheriff since 1994. Barnes His community involvement includes serving on several boards, both professional and civic. He holds degrees in juvenile justice and criminal justice and has taught criminal justice courses at the college level. One of the boards he serves on is the N.C. Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Training and Standards, a board that sets the standard for sheriffs and deputies across the state. He and his wife, Dena, have two

grown children and six grandchildren. Q: What do you see as the most effective ways that the sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s department can deter crime? A: The sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office does an excellent job of controlling crime in Guilford County. During my tenure as sheriff, we have reduced crime by 46 percent, according to the N.C. Attorney Generalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office. We rank in the top 14 percent of law enforcement agencies in the state, according to the Uniform Crime Report, far ahead of other local agencies in having the lowest crime index rate. While these numbers are significant, it can never be good enough as long as any citizen is a victim of crime. Our goal is to make these numbers even better. Q: What type of relationship do you think the sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s department should have with the board of commissioners, especially in terms of negotiations for funding and budgets? A: The working relationship with the board of commissioners should be and has been

professional. They have a job to do; we have a job to do, though sometimes the jobs seem to be at odds. My responsibility as sheriff is to make sure we do our job efficiently and professionally and let them know as the funding source what our needs are. Their job is to meet those needs. We strive to be team players as it relates to the budget, but the mission of public safety is always on our minds and I hope those of commissioners. Q: Do you agree with the current plans for expanding the Guilford County Jail? A: I support the jail expansion because of the overcrowding situation putting us in jeopardy of a lawsuit that could cost the county millions. Guilford County has defended itself in numerous lawsuits and we have pending lawsuits now. We have been able to defend against them because we are trying to alleviate our overcrowded situation. The state or federal government can and has taken over every large department in the state except ours; it has cost these other counties millions. The jail is needed for the safety of our communities and the financial safety of our county.

Q: Should the city view the campaign toward regionalism as an overall benefit to High Point or something that could threaten

the city by short-changing High Point?

of the region. The Plank Road Terminal is too far north and not on a bus route.

A: Regionalism overall could benefit High Point, assuming the councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s policies maintain the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s independence regarding some regional services. Examples are planning, inspections and police and fire. Merging departments in some areas can work, such as figuring how to deal with the tax departments, library service and landfills. Unfortunately, a poor example is how the Piedmont Authority for Regional Transportation has not truly expanded services in High Point, especially since a large portion of the funding comes from auto rentals and the furniture market has the larger rental income

Q: If elected, what would be your top priorities?

A: Priority one will be to deal with the upcoming revenue shortfalls expected in the 2011/2012 city budget. Service will have to be trimmed even further and a possible reduction in staff in not out of the question. As stated in No. 2, my goal will be to revise the EDC policy that benefits multiple businesses through infrastructure and working with staff to promote the advantages of expanding existing business.

The inter-generational workplace dance BY MILDRED L. CULP WORKWISE FEATURES

Miami’s Alejandro Ceron, managing director, Latin America, HR Region head at Marsh Inc., found himself on a new team, with four generations of employees from all over the world. Then came his epiphany. “I needed to adapt my leadership and learning roles,” he says, “because many younger people knew more than I did in a lot of areas. They complemented my knowledge of strategy and operations with fresh thoughts, technical savvy, a more organized, aggressive presentation of ideas and speed. I saw that if I didn’t change myself, I’d be losing my leadership position or be surpassed by another generation that I’d never understand.” Older people weren’t presenting the same challenge, because he’d always worked with them. He predicts that one day his boss will be younger than he is. Although Ceron is in charge of HR for Latin America, he quickly points out that his company’s clients are changing, too, becoming younger and far less conservative, with new needs. He says that although the generational divide is global,


K.B. Smith, managing director, Latin America, Placement leader (left), Alejandro Ceron, managing director, Latin America, HR Region head (center), and Edna Troche, assistant vice president, broker of Reinsurance, discuss the generations at Miami’s Marsh Inc. “some countries are in denial, thinking that the younger generation will adapt, the way people who went to Woodstock started wearing a tie. That’s not happening; so corporations need to adapt.” Richard Harmer, a 30year-old brand strategist at Brady Media Group in Addison, Texas, works with corporate executives, and his firm’s partners, who are in their mid-40s. He maintains that com-

munication patterns for his generation are far more casual than those of preceding generations and that telephone calls tend to occur on cell phones.

REMEDIES Sense of humor helps bridge the generational divide, but it’s not enough. After his epiphany, Ceron gathered resources for the company to develop a wiki to use internally worldwide. He also writes

a blog and encourages employees to e-mail. Joni Daniels of Baltimore’s Joni Daniels & Associates has developed a communication method that’s heavy on questions and listening so she understands world views and factors influencing outcomes. Somewhat similarly, Harmer has trained himself to use questions to elicit explanations of the reasons other generations

think as they do and work without using technology. “You have to understand that there’s more than one way to get an answer to a problem,” he says. “The smartest older people understand that communication methods and tactics have changed. Many have transitioned to our methods, which makes it a little easier for me. My generation has influenced every single generation before us.”

Harmer also believes that younger people need to understand older workers and get the experience to advance. But, “if the older generation doesn’t tap into creativity,” he remarks, “they can miss the boat. Many don’t understand how to use social media to engage with another person for business.” Daniels cautions older people not to “risk limiting themselves and their knowledge base to what they’ve already known. They (can) really risk not learning. Younger folks risk not educating themselves about ... what hasn’t worked and what people experienced before they showed up. We all sort of think the world begins and ends with us.” Ceron observes that adapting to one generation or another isn’t the only panacea. “It’s about how we use the characteristics of each generation and get the best of each,” he states. “The younger generation will find its way, with or without us. The best we can do is to ask leaders to understand how to get the strengths of the four generations together.” DR. MILDRED L. CULP is an award-winning journalist. Email questions or comments to

Westchester takes state title ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

GASTONIA – Westchester Country Day kept with it until the very end. Capping their first run to the final four in six years, the No. 3seeded Wildcats scored with 1:23 left in the second 10-minute overtime to beat No. 1 Caldwell Academy 3-2 on Saturday in the NCISAA 2A boys soccer state championship at Gaston Christian. Lasse Palomaki took a cross from Jose Valencia and finished for the winner, giving Westchester its second state title in school history and first in seven years. Palomaki finished with two goals for the game, while Valencia assisted all three. “It’s a great accomplishment for the kids,” head coach Adam Schwartz said. “Our senior leadership was incredible. They showed a lot of heart these last two days. The goals we set, the boys accomplished. So, it’s a great day to be a Wildcat.” Harry Keefe also had a goal, while George Freiberger had an assist for Westchester, which finished 20-3-1 – setting a school record for wins in a season – after it hadn’t reach the final four since 2004. Caldwell finished at 22-3-1. Schwartz highlighted the play of his defense – most notably goalkeeper Dylan Gaffney, who had nine saves, and defenders Matt Crooker, Tyler Thompson and Adam Goho, who stifled

Westchester Country Day School poses with the trophy after Saturday’s 3-2 overtime victory over Caldwell Academy in the NCISAA 2A state-title match on Saturday at Gaston Christian. Caldwell’s top scorers. Palomaki scored his first goal in the 36th minute, as Freiberger crossed to Valencia, who passed quickly to Palomaki for a 1-0 lead.

Caldwell answered in the 54th minute to tie it 1-all, and the game remained tied into overtime. In the 88th minute, Keefe took a pass from Valencia and drilled it

into the upper corner for a 2-1 lead that held until the 94th minute when Caldwell knotted it again. Westchester, however, made the most of one last opportunity.

“He always tells me he’s going to go for 180 yards, said White’s roommate, safety Deunta Williams. “This is the first time he’s gotten close to it.” T.J. Yates was 23 of 33 for 238 yards with a 1-yard touchdown run and a 3-yard TD pass to Ryan Taylor. Paulus – Yates’ former backup at North Carolina – nearly led William & Mary to another win against one of the Atlantic Coast Conference’s big boys. He finished 24 of 35 for 209 yards and touchdowns of 6 and 9 yards to Chase Hill for the Tribe (6-2). “I’m sure he wanted to come back and beat his former team,” Hill said of Paulus.

Santiago again for the 2-point conversion. The Midshipmen (5-3) scored three touchdowns and converted three 2-point conversions in a 12-minute stretch of the fourth quarter. Navy turned the ball over on downs with 6 seconds to play. Renfree tied a Duke record when he completed his first 16 passes and completed 17 for 18 passes in the first half for 180 yards. He finished with 28 completions in 30 attempts, setting a Duke record with a 93.3 completion percentage.


Wild ride Ron Hornaday Jr., flips through the first turn near the end of the NASCAR Mountain Dew 250 truck race at Talladega Superspeedway on Saturday. Also involved are Grant Enfinger (95), Narain Karthikeyan (60) and Todd Bodine. Hornaday was not seriously injured. See story on 5D.

Cadet leads Appalachian State past Furman BOONE (AP) – Travaris Cadet ran for 132 yards and three touchdowns to help Appalachian State stay unbeaten in a 37-26 win over Furman on Saturday. The Mountaineers (8-0, 6-0 Southern Conference) never trailed against Furman (4-4, 2-3), pulling out to a 21-6 lead when Jabari Fletcher returned a fumble 40

yards for a touchdown in the third quarter. The Paladins cut the margin to eight points on Tersoo Uhaa’s 2yard touchdown run in the third. But Furman would pull no closer as Appalachian State pushed its lead to 35-20 in the fourth on a 1yard rushing score by Cadet, who finished with 24 carries.





Duke holds off Navy ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) – Sean Renfree passed for 314 yards, threw for a touchdown, and ran for two more scores and Duke nearly blew a 24point lead before beating Navy 34-31 on Saturday. The Blue Devils (2-6) snapped a six-game losing streak. Duke led 34-15 with 8:48 left after a 40-yard field goal by Will Snyderwine. Navy closed to 34-31 with 2:34 to play when Ricky Dobbs hit Aaron Santiago with a 12-yard touchdown pass, then found



Tar Heels rally past Tribe, 21-17 CHAPEL HILL (AP) – For much of the day, it seemed like Mike Paulus finally would walk out of North Carolina’s stadium after earning a victory of his own. Then the Tar Heels finally started clicking, and Johnny White struck again from long distance. White’s 67-yard touchdown run with 5:27 to play capped North Carolina’s rally from 10 points down in the fourth quarter and lifted the Tar Heels past William & Mary 21-17 on Saturday. White finished with a career-high 164 yards for North Carolina (5-3), which snapped the Tribe’s six-game winning streak.


appy Halloween, everyone! Here’s hoping your day features plenty of treats and no tricks. The NFL gets into the act with a scarybad matchup in spooky, foggy London today. It’s the San Francisco 49ers against the Denver Broncos in the league’s annual venture across the pond to showcase its game to British fans. This one looked great on preseason paper. The 49ers were a popular pick to capture the NFC West crown, while the Broncos ap-

peared primed for a strong run at the AFC West title. But a funny thing happened on the way to London. The 49ers and Broncos played some bloody awful football. San Francisco brings a 1-6 record to England, while the Broncos stand a wobbly 2-5. The 49ers are coming off a 23-20 loss to previously winless Carolina. The Broncos got clobbered 59-14 at home by the woeful Raiders. Toss in the lingering effects of jet lag and

the time difference and don’t be surprised if these teams stumble, bumble and fumble their way to a performance that’ll make professional soccer look exciting. Well, I wouldn’t go that far. Still, I’m sure this is not what NFL bigwigs envisioned for their European working vacation. They’ll be hard-pressed to mask their disappointment if this Halloween game turns frighteningly ugly.

Terrapins crush Deacs, 62-14 COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Danny Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien threw a careerhigh four touchdown passes, Kenny Tate and Ryan Donohue each scored on interception returns and Maryland rolled past Wake Forest 62-14 Saturday to become bowl eligible. The Terrapins (6-2, 3-1 ACC) scored on their first four possessions and blocked two punts in taking a 27-7 halftime lead. In the third quarter, Tate and Donohue sandwiched their scores around a touchdown pass by

Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien to assure Wake Forest (2-5, 1-4) its sixth straight defeat. It was Marylandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most lopsided ACC win since a 59-7 rout of North Carolina in 2002, and the 62 points tied the school record for a conference game, set in 1975 in a 62-24 win over Virginia. Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien, a redshirt freshman, went 13-for-20 for 168 yards before being lifted in the third quarter. He has seven touchdown passes in his last two games and 12 overall. Davin Meggett ran for 94 yards and a touchdown for the Terra-

pins, whose sixth win made them bowl eligible for the seventh time in 10 years under coach Ralph Friedgen. Wake Forest freshman quarterback Tanner Price completed 16 of 31 passes for 156 yards and a touchdown. Backup Skylar Jones played briefly in the third quarter, but one of his three passes was picked off by Donohue, who took it 25 yards into the end zone. The loss dropped Wake Forest into a last-place tie with Boston College in the Atlantic Division.

Knights top Pirates in key C-USA clash ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Ronnie Weaver had a career-high 180 yards rushing and two touchdowns, and Central Florida took a huge step toward a Conference USA title with a 49-35 victory over East Carolina on Saturday. Latavius Murray ran for 47 yards and three touchdowns, freshman Jeff Godfrey threw for 159 yards

and two scores and UCF found the end zone on its first four possessions. The Knights (6-2, 4-0) beat the Pirates for the first time in five years and are the only team still undefeated in league play. Dominique Davis threw for 310 yards and three touchdowns with one interception, leading a late East Carolina comeback that came

up short. The two-time defending conference champion Pirates (5-3, 4-1) will need â&#x20AC;&#x201C; at the very least â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to win out and hope UCF loses twice to represent the East Division in the conference title game. The stakes were as high as they get in Conference USA. The Pirates had won 10 straight against league opponents.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Virginia intercepted Miamiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s backup quarterbacks four times after Jacory Harris was hurt to upset the No. 22 Hurricanes 24-19 on Saturday. Virginia (4-4, 1-3 ACC), which had lost nine straight conference games, knocked Harris from the game on a huge hit by John-Kevin Dolce in the second quarter with the score still 0-0. Keith Payne ran for two scores, and Marc Verica added a touchdown pass for Virginia, which went up 24-0 early in the fourth quarter before Miami rallied to pull within five points with more than 41â &#x201E;2 minutes left.

It was the Eaglesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; longest losing streak since 1998. Harris ran 36 times for 142 yards for the Eagles (3-5, 1-4 ACC). The Tigers (4-4, 2-3) had won their last two games.

Rookie quarterback Sam Bradford (8) leads the Rams against the Carolina Panthers today in St. Louis.

Rams look for better second half against Panthers ST. LOUIS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The glass is half full for the St. Louis Rams â&#x20AC;&#x201C; nearly, anyway â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who have already tripled their 2009 win total. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re one of the NFLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s surprise teams. If not for some empty second halves, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be a lot more highly regarded heading into todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game against the 1-5 Carolina Panthers. The Rams (3-4) could easily be 5-2 and atop the NFC West, losing three games by a total of seven points. Only once, in a blowout at Detroit in Week 5, were they not in it until the finish. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re well aware of the missed opportunities. Finishing as strong as they start was emphasized in practice last week. Then they squandered an 11-point halftime lead, managing only 96 yards and no points the rest of the way in an 18-17 loss at Tampa Bay. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Believe me, there was a lot of focus and attention to detail as far as making sure that the second half was going to be successful,â&#x20AC;? center Jason Brown said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For some reason, it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pan out that way, you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see it on the scoreboard. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of things weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing to ourselves.â&#x20AC;? This week, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re emphasizing it again. Offensive linemen are adding an incentive, with the first one to commit a false start picking up a hefty tab at the weekly dinner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last week I was the one that paid,â&#x20AC;? rookie tackle Rodger Saffold said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They took it easy on me, only $700.â&#x20AC;? Coach Steve Spagnuolo blames the second half blahs on a combination of minor gaffes. Gift interceptions that got dropped. Missed tackles, missed assignments,

blown coverages. While the coaching staff tries to come up with solutions, Spagnuolo just wants players to keep at it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I told the guys in there, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be deep thinking this thing,â&#x20AC;? Spagnuolo said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do we have to get better in the second half? Yeah. Was it scheme? Calls? Did they make any major adjustments? I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think so.â&#x20AC;? The last two weeks the Rams have been accused of retreating into a shell to preserve the lead. They were able to hang on for a 20-17 victory over the Chargers after leading 17-3 at the break, but werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t so lucky last week, managing only six first downs and no points the last two quarters. Defense has not been a problem; the Rams have allowed 18 or fewer points in all but one of their games. But St. Louis surrendered a 16-play, 81-yard drive capped by the winning touchdown pass with 10 seconds to go in last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 18-17 loss at Tampa Bay. In the first half, the Rams have looked much better. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve yet to allow a touchdown in the first quarter and have outscored opponents 8159 in the half. The Panthers have a profile that appears ripe for the Rams to exploit, getting outscored 75-43 in the first half. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re also the lowest scoring team in the NFL, averaging 12 points. There are only five Panther players 30 or older, half as many as the Rams have. So the Panthers are learning on the job. The offense hit its high water mark last week, getting big games from rookies Davis Gettis and Brandon LaFell in a 23-20 victory over the 49ers.

For those who enjoyed less noise and trash talk than usual in the NFL last weekend, forget about it. The New York Jets are back. Coming off a bye with a five-game winning string and tied for the best record in the league, the Jets have every right to brag. While they praise todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opponent at the Meadowlands, the Packers, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been no drop-off in confidence among the Jets since they were away. Asked about defending the run against a pass-heavy team such as Green Bay, which ranks eighth through the air but 20th on the ground and is without starting running back Ryan Grant, Jets coach Rex Ryanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eyes lit up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll allow you to run it. If thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what you want to do, go for it,â&#x20AC;? Ryan says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you think you can beat us that way, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m all for it.â&#x20AC;? Naturally: New York ranks seventh against the run, and even that isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t so accurate, Ryan claims. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We gave up a couple big runs to their quarterback,â&#x20AC;? he says of the Jetsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; win over Denver before their bye, â&#x20AC;&#x153;which I think is a little bit misleading when you look at it statistically. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fine. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take the same game plan. Let them run it. That doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bother us one bit.â&#x20AC;? Not much seems to bother the Jets, who won against the Broncos despite their sloppiest game of the season, one in which Mark Sanchez threw his first two interceptions of the year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Especially this last game, I was just getting away from some of the fundamentals, holding the ball in one hand, getting my feet set,â&#x20AC;? Sanchez says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was pleased with the way we rallied and won the game, but just ball security issues last game, because up to that point I was doing pretty well. You get right back on track and this is a good week to start.â&#x20AC;? The Packers, 4-3 and tied for the NFC North lead with Chicago, hope they got started on a long run of success by beating Brett Favre and the archrival Vikings last weekend. QB Aaron Rodgers expects it, starting with himself. Also today, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pittsburgh at New Orleans, Tennessee at San Diego, Minnesota at New England, Seattle at Oakland, Tampa Bay at Arizona, Buffalo at Kansas City, Miami at Cincinnati, Washington at Detroit, Carolina at St. Louis, and Jacksonville at Dallas. The NFLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s international series continues today with a matchup the league canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t brag much about, Denver vs. San Francisco at London. Monday night features an AFC South meeting for first place between Houston and Indianapolis. Off this week are Philadelphia, Chicago, Atlanta, Baltimore, Cleveland, and the New York Giants.

PITTSBURGH (5-1) AT NEW ORLEANS (4-3) The Super Bowl champs are struggling. Just what they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need is a matchup with the NFLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most physical team, which won the previous Super Bowl. Yet here come the Steelers into New Orleans, where the Saints come off a lopsided loss to Cleveland â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Cleveland? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and have the kind of problems the Steelers feast on. With Reggie Bush and Pierre Thomas injured (neither looks likely to play today), the Saints havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t run the ball consistently and havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been as effective beating pressure with screens, swing passes and check-downs. That has forced Drew Brees to be more conventional, and when a defense expects passes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in Pittsburghâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s case, it might not even matter what is expected â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that spells trouble.


spire Minnesota, which has a relatively easy schedule following this trip. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tough to peak against the Patriots, who seem to be hitting their stride, and could be too much for a struggling NFC team with a battered 41-year-old quarterback.

SEATTLE (4-2) AT OAKLAND (3-4) A chance for both teams to prove they belong in the playoff conversation. Seattle can take a strong hold on the NFC West with a second straight road win; the Seahawks are one of the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best home teams and still have five games at Qwest Field. Raiders fans donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need any help getting up for â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or dressing up for â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Halloween. But that 59-14 romp past Denver has sent them beyond giddy. If they can stop Seattleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rushing game, the Raiders could prosper.

TAMPA BAY (4-2) AT ARIZONA (3-3) Two more teams looking for validation, with the Buccaneers in far better position to do so. Arizona has almost exhausted the QB supply and couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have been sloppier in losing at Seattle last Sunday. Tampa is as set as could be with Josh Freeman at quarterback, and is particularly efficient late in games, when it has scored 39 of its 98 points. The Bucs are a plus-6 in turnover margin, while the Cardinals trail in the NFC at minus-7. Bucs free safety Cody Grimm goes up against his father, assistant head coach Russ Grimm, and brother Chad, the Cardinalsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; quality control coach.

BUFFALO (0-6) AT KANSAS CITY (4-2) After a 37-34 OT loss at Baltimore, the Bills feel they are making progress toward that elusive first victory. Then again, they blew a big lead in a very short time against the Ravens, then made critical mistakes at the end to fall again. Buffalo has the worst run defense in football.

MIAMI (3-3) AT CINCINNATI (2-4) Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s see, the Dolphins have won all three road games (OK, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve dropped all three at home). They feel they got jobbed last Sunday against Pittsburgh, so theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re angry. And they can get after the quarterback, with 17 sacks, including six by Cameron Wake. Cincinnati found the offensive touch at Atlanta, but has lost three straight and key cornerback Johnathan Joseph is plagued by an ankle injury. Brandon Marshall might have a big day if the Bengals canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t manufacture a pass rush; they have only six sacks.

WASHINGTON (4-3) AT DETROIT (1-5) If the Redskins sleepwalk against the Lions theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll miss a strong opportunity to enhance their standing in the NFC. Detroit has scored more points than it has allowed, 146-140, and is 1-1 at home, scoring 76 points. With QB Matthew Stafford expected back from a shoulder injury, the Lions carry some optimism as they come off a bye week. Washington got four interceptions by DeAngelo Hall last week and forced six turnovers, yet won only 17-14 at Chicago. Donovan McNabb has thrown at least a touchdown and an interception in each of last five games.

JACKSONVILLE (3-4) AT DALLAS (1-5) Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s become easy to write off the Cowboys, who will be without Tony Romo for most of the rest of the season. Still, the Jaguars arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t much better and have lost 11 fumbles. Their minus-10 turnover margin is worst in the league.


The Texans got rid of their hangover against the Colts with a season-opening romp. They could put Indy in a deep hole by winning this one. To do so, the Texans must shore up a pass defense that ranks dead last and is yielding nearly 320 yards a game. Houston might have a chance to do that because Peyton Manningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s receiving corps has been diminished by injuries. Then again, Indy could bring Marvin Harrison out of retirement and Manning might find him for two scores.

Not much of a classic for the NFLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s international series. The last time these teams met on a neutral field in a game that counted, the 49ers won the Super Bowl 55-10 in New Orleans in 1990. Denver yielded 59 points at home to Oakland last week. Not that any of those numbers mean much with these two also-rans when they face off in London at Wembley. Hopefully, the huge crowd wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get turned off to â&#x20AC;&#x153;American football.â&#x20AC;?

TENNESSEE (5-2) AT SAN DIEGO (2-5) If the Chargers really are this bad, the Titansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; physical defense and opportunistic ways will expose San Diegoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deficiencies rather quickly. San Diego has the most giveaways in the AFC (18) and most fumbles lost in the league (12). Tennessee has the most takeaways (18) and interceptions (12) in the NFL. The Titans play nice tunes in road games, too, going 3-0 away from Music City. San Diego is the only team Titans coach Jeff Fisher hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t beaten.

MINNESOTA (2-4) AT NEW ENGLAND (5-1) Whether Brett Favre continues his consecutive starts streak (291 for regular season) or sits out, this is a difficult assignment for the bruised (physically and mentally) Vikings. Maybe Randy Moss returning to the place he asked out of earlier this season will in-

NASCAR executive Hunter dies at 71 THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Jim Hunter, a NASCAR executive who spent portions of six decades in the industry, first as a newspaper reporter and later as a public relations official with the sanctioning body, has died

after a yearlong battle with cancer. He was 71. Hunter died Friday night in Daytona Beach, Fla., NASCAR said. He was at Talladega Superspeedway when he was diagnosed last fall, and a race will be held there Sunday.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jim Hunter was one of NASCARâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s giants,â&#x20AC;? said NASCAR chairman Brian France. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For more than 40 years Jim was part of NASCAR and its history. He loved the sport, but loved the people even more. It seems as if everyone in the sport called him a friend.â&#x20AC;?

Beloved in the NASCAR garage area for his quick wit and knack for building personal relationships, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jim was a uniquely talented man that cannot be replaced,â&#x20AC;? NASCAR President Mike Helton said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was a great friend and mentor to so many in the sport.â&#x20AC;?

Montoya takes Talladega pole CASH FOR GOLD

TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Juan Pablo Montoya grabbed a sliver of the spotlight focused on the three championship contending drivers by winning the pole at Talladega Superspeedway. Montoya, who is not in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship, turned a lap at 184.640 mph to better Clint Bowyer, Kurt Busch and all the contenders in Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s qualifying session. While the focus should be on Montoyaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bid to win his first race on an oval track, he knows it will instead be on the middle of the pack, where championship contenders Jimmie Johnson, Denny Hamlin and Kevin Harvick will start todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s race. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you are in the Chase and you are not in the top three (in stand-

ings), nobody even cares,â&#x20AC;? Montoya said. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the downside of the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship, which pits the top-12 drivers against each other in a 10-race push to the title. Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s race at Talladega is the beginning of the final four-race stretch, and the field has separated itself so that only three drivers have a realistic shot at winning the title. And none of them was as good as Montoya in qualifying. Harvick qualified 14th, Hamlin 17th and Johnson 19th for a race that could be pivotal in shaking up the standings. Because of the unpredictability at Talladega, the rankings could look dramatically different by the time the checkered flag falls today.

Johnson, the four-time defending series champion, has a six-point lead over Hamlin. Harvick, winner of the April race at Talladega and the July race at Daytona, is 61 points back. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very possible for (Harvick) to leapfrog both of us this weekend,â&#x20AC;? Hamlin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a complete wild card. â&#x20AC;? For starters, the Chase contenders will have to work their way to the front of the field, where Montoya will lead Bowyer and Busch at the green flag. Bowyer, who is 12th in the Chase standings, is still searching for a win that will give him some redemption from the championship-crippling penalty he received when his winning car from New Hampshire failed inspection.

Last-ditch pass helps Busch win TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Kyle Busch made a last-ditch move to take the lead from Aric Almirola and win the NASCAR Camping World Trucks Series race at Talladega Superspeedway by 0.002 of a second on Saturday. It was the closest finish in series history when using electronic scoring, NASCAR officials said. It was Buschâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sixth victory in 13 Truck series starts this season â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and his second straight Truck series win at Talladega after winning there last year. Busch was in third place on a restart with two laps to go, made

his way to second and then ducked under Almirola and beat him by a nose as the checkered flag came out. With Johnny Sauter charging behind him, Busch said he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any other choice than to duck under Almirola. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had to bring it back down, and I got underneath Aric,â&#x20AC;? Busch said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At that point youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just got to stay in the throttle and keep digging. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even know where the yellow line was.â&#x20AC;? Almirola finished second, followed by Sauter, Matt Crafton and Ricky Carmichael.

Almirola complained afterward that Busch went below a yellow out-of-bounds line at the bottom of the track to make the pass. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My perspective is, we won the race,â&#x20AC;? Almirola said. The always-feared â&#x20AC;&#x153;big oneâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a massive wreck unique to Talladega â&#x20AC;&#x201C; came with three laps to go, collecting points leader Todd Bodine, contender Ron Hornaday Jr. and several others. Hornaday escaped serious injury even though his truck flipped on its roof and had to be flipped back over by a tow truck before Hornaday could climb out.



RPM drivers face uncertain future TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; For Richard Petty Motorsports, simply making it to the racetrack this week was a victory. The team is facing an uncertain future amid questions about co-owner George Gillett Jr.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to meet the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s financial obligations. Gillett owns the team along with NASCAR icon Richard Petty. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wish I had answers,â&#x20AC;? RPM driver AJ Allmendinger said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wish I could tell my team guys that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be OK. I wish I could have answers that everybody wants. But I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t.â&#x20AC;? Allmendinger is trying to stay focused on racing, and acknowledged that it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t easy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re here racing a car,â&#x20AC;? Allmendinger said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully next weekend weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re at Texas racing a car.â&#x20AC;? Rumors about RPMâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shaky financial footing are nothing new, but the speculation reignited when Gillett and business partner Tom Hicks tried unsuccessfully earlier this month to block a sale of the Liverpool soccer club they owned to John Henry and his New England Sports Ventures group. RPM is facing the loss of driver Paul Menard â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and a lucrative sponsorship deal from his familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chain of home improvement stores â&#x20AC;&#x201C; at the end of the season, and granted an early contract release to rising star Kasey Kahne so he could join another team. Speaking at Martinsville Speedway last weekend, RPM director of competition Robbie Loomis said the team was moving ahead with plans for 2011. The RPM situation is being watched closely by driver Marcos Ambrose,

who has a deal to drive for the team next season, but now faces the possibility that the team wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be around. Ambrose says he isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t looking at other options for next season â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not yet, anyway. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m fully committed to them until they tell

me the boatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sunk,â&#x20AC;? Ambrose said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m optimistic, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re working through it, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s looking better every day. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking forward to the opportunity.â&#x20AC;? Ambrose is optimistic that something will be worked out to keep the team afloat.

A better value today and tomorrow.

CHARLOTTE (AP) – Carolina Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams has not made the trip to St. Louis and will miss today’s game against the Rams with an injured foot. Saturday’s decision means Jonathan Stewart will likely get the start against the Rams as the Panthers try to jump-start the league’s 23rd-ranked rushing offense. Mike Goodson will likely be the No. 2 back today.

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) – Brett Favre tells ESPN that he expects to start for the Vikings against the New England Patriots in today’s game despite two fractures in his left ankle. The network reported Saturday that Favre said in a telephone interview his injuries have healed significantly and that he plans to start, which would extend his record streak of consecutive regular-season starts to 292 games. Minnesota coach Brad Childress said Friday he “probably will” wait until the last hours before kickoff to decide whether Favre starts.

You can’t beat red drum tourney action S

ometimes the weather just wipes you out on a fishing trip. This past weekend at the North Carolina Beach Buggy Association Red Drum Tournament, the weather did just that. It wasn’t that the weather was stormy or raining. In fact the weather was really nice, comfortable with just a light wind, and that was the problem. “I hate flat water,” Greg Griffin, a consistent winner from past tournaments told me this week. Griffin went without a fish, though he did have two class winners, in his entourage. Red drum like rough weather. They like current, big waves and a crashing surf. The light winds and calm surf had an adverse effect on the fishing. This year, there were only 12 red drum landed in the entire tournament of almost three days of fishing. Last year, there were over a hundred. It wasn’t that the number of anglers was down. In fact, this year, there were 326 anglers fishing from all over the Eastern United States. There was also a lot of beach to fish with fewer turtle closures than normal this year. Even though there are numerous women and youth anglers, the NCBBA Red Drum Tournament is no event for faint hearted anglers. The tournament begins at 12 a.m. on Thursday and ends at 4 p.m, on Saturday. Many anglers fish the whole 64 hours of the event and many more only take short naps during low tide or daylight hours. Red drum favor night time and, of the winning fish, every one was taken in the dark except one puppy drum taken in twilight at 7:11 p.m. on Saturday. Not only were most of the fish taken at night, this year, the northern end of the tournaments range produced the winners. Every winning fish came from north of Ramp 27, much farther north than normal. The beaches at Hatteras are constantly changing and the structure of the Northern Beaches provided better holes this year. This year’s winner was Steve Merrick of Millsboro, Del. Steve caught his 471⁄2” drum at 4:50 a.m. on Friday. Steve is a long time drum fisherman and placed second overall in

a tournament about ten years ago. Steve’s fish was the first of two 471⁄2” drum on Friday. Since Steve’s fish was first, it was the winning fish. Jan Ellis, of Eldersburg Md., won the Ladies category with a 43 ½” fish on Friday night. Jan’s been fishing for a long SPORTS time but has taken it seriously for the last five years or so. Her Dick fish hit at about 9 p.m. It was Jones the largest drum she’d ever ■■■ caught and the fish’s stamina surprised her. “I’ve caught a 36” drum and there’s a lot of difference with one that big. He was strong, I was exhausted by the time I got him in,” Ellis said. “The rules require that you land your fish without assistance and, once in got him in close, it seemed to take forever before I could get him on the beach.” One of the things that makes this tournament difficult is that, since all drum over 27” have to be released, it’s necessary to judge the fish as soon as it comes out of the water. This was accomplished this year with 32 judges who were stationed at intervals on the beach with cell phones. When a fish is on, the judge gets a call and makes his way to the angler for the measurement. In the tournament, all red drum must be released alive to count. The Red Drum tournament is a centerpiece surf fishing event for individual anglers at Hatteras. The Tournament began in 1984 just a week after David Deuel caught the current world record on Avon Beach November, 4 of that year. As a matter of reference, Deuel’s fish weighed 94 pounds, 2 ounces and was 57 inches long. The two biggest fish in this year’s event were 47¾ inches. The prize or $250,000 was offered to the angler who could best Deuel’s record. It’s not likely that his record will be broken in North Carolina since anglers can only keep fish between 18” and 27”. The one time in the year when a new record is possible is the three days of the drum tournament because the organizers always

have a IGFA certified scale available during the tournament. While most Outer Banks tournaments have a long waiting list, the NCBBA Tournament almost always has room up until right before the event. It’s a great experience for anyone and a fund raiser for a great organization. It’s an event that the most seasoned anglers enjoy and a beginner can enjoy. A few years ago, an angler showed up at Frank and Fran’s, the tackle shop that serves as headquarters for the event, with his first ever drum. Frank suggested he enter the tournament, he did, and won the event with his second ever drum. About NCBBA: This was the second year for the NCBBA to run the tournament and it’s a great funding opportunity for an organization that tirelessly strives to make life better for anglers and the folks on the island. In recent years, environmental groups that used to be mainstream organizations have become quite radical and are paying millions to law firms like the Southern Environmental Law Center to restrict access of our National Parks to average people. In the last few years, these groups have sued the Parks Department in attempts to close the beaches down, not just to motorized vehicles but to pedestrians as well. In addition to the normal activities of the NCBBA like Operation Beach Respect, a series of beach cleanup weekends, they have spent considerable sums just trying to keep the beaches open because of all the environmental law groups that are trying to close them to the public.

McDowell falls into tie with Maybin at Valderrama SOTOGRANDE, Spain (AP) – Graeme McDowell and Gareth Maybin of Northern Ireland took a four-stroke lead at the Andalucia Masters on Saturday after a windy third round sent scores soaring. McDowell, the U.S. Open champion, shot a 1-over 72, while Maybin had a 70 to reach 6 under. Conditions were so difficult at Valderrama that only six players

were under par at the end of a day that began with 13 in minus territory. Damien McGrane of Ireland shot a 70 to reach 2 under and grab a share of third with Miguel Angel Jimenez of Spain, who had a 71. Martin Kaymer, who needs to win or finish second to take Tiger Woods’ place atop the world rankings, improved on his first

two rounds, but his 70 still left him nine shots off the lead on the course that staged the 1997 Ryder Cup. McDowell squandered a good opportunity to take a big lead into the fourth round and boost his bid for a third title this year. He had a two-stroke lead at the 18th when he misjudged the strength of a crosswind, put his second shot in a greenside bun-

ker and ended up with a double bogey. “Standing on the fairway I thought about having a comfortable lead and what happened was just careless,” McDowell said. “But there was enough good golf out there to make me happy. I am going into the Sunday afternoon with a chance to win a golf tournament and that’s where I want to be.”

Song-Hee Kim leads by one shot in South Korea THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

INCHEON, South Korea – South Korea’s Song-Hee Kim birdied four holes in a row on the front nine Saturday and finished with her second straight 4-under 68 for a one-stroke lead over defending champion Na Yeon Choi in the LPGA Hana Bank Championship. Winless in 73 LPGA Tour starts, Kim finished second in the LPGA Championship in late June, then lost a playoff to Choi the following week in the Jamie Farr Classic. “I played really well in the early part of the round, but I struggled with my shots in the last part of the round,” Kim said. “I managed to overcome the adversity with my putting. I think I can play well tomorrow if I play the way I played today.”

Choi also shot a 68 on Sky 72 Golf Club’s Ocean Course. “I have confidence right now, and I have a good feeling about my game,” Choi said. “I felt that I lost focus on the last couple holes, so I’m going to go to the range and hit some balls and get more focus and confidence.” Vicky Hurst was third at 6 under after a 70. Juli Inkster, the 50-year-old Hall of Famer who bogeyed the final hole last week in Malaysia to finish a stroke behind winner Jimin Kang, was three strokes back at 5 under after a 68. Inkster is trying to become the oldest LPGA Tour winner. “I think I’m over last week,” Inkster said. Second-ranked South Korean star Jiyai Shin was 3 under after a 68, and No. 1 Cristie Kerr was an-

other stroke back after her second straight 71. Michelle Wie shot a 73, leaving her 1 under.

CRANE SHOWS WAY IN MALAYSIA KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia – Ben Crane of the United States birdied three of his last four holes to take a two-shot lead in the Asia Pacific Classic on Saturday. The 36-year-old Crane finished with a 5-under 66 in the third round for a 16-under total of 197. He was two strokes ahead of Sweden’s Carl Pettersson, who also shot a 66. Singaporean veteran Mardan Mamat had a 65 for a share of third place with four other players, another two shots back. Brian Davis, fellow Englishman Luke Donald and American duo Ryan Moore and Ricky Barnes were also tied for third.

Tim Trudgeon uses a small metal tube to form the pupil in the eye of a pirate (right), whose face he carved out of a pumpkin. One of Trudgeon’s secrets is to use a cooking pumpkin, which allows him to carve deeper images. JIMMY TOMLIN | HPE

Making faces Tim Trudgeon can work wonders with a pumpkin BY JIMMY TOMLIN ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER


n elderly woman watches wide-eyed as Tim Trudgeon sinks the tip of a fish fileting knife into the thick, meaty wall of a pumpkin and slices out a small chunk. The woman watches, speechless, as Trudgeon slowly, methodically transforms the outer shell of the pumpkin into the intricately detailed face of a snarling pirate, complete with snaggly teeth, an eyepatch, a bandana and a nasty scar. Finally, she has to ask: “Are you a surgeon?” Trudgeon, who is probably North Carolina’s best-known pumpkin-carver, tries to suppress a chuckle. “No ma’am,” he says affably, “I’m a woodcarver.” And, in fact, Trudgeon is a woodcarver – that’s where his pumpkin-carving skills evolved from – but the amazing things he can do with a pumpkin certainly suggest the gifted hands of a surgeon. In an hour or less, Trudgeon can transform a bland-looking pumpkin into, say, an Indian. A pirate. A cartoon character. A monkey. Or, as he once did, the face of Steve Troxler, North Carolina’s Commissioner of Agriculture. “The problem with that,” Trudgeon says, “is that you have to find a pumpkin the same shape as the head of the person you’re carving.” Trudgeon, who lives in Davie County but has done pumpkincarving demonstrations all over the state, took up woodcarving as a boy of 10 or 11, learning the craft from his grandfather. It wasn’t until adulthood, though,


A fish fileting knife is one of Trudgeon’s favorite pumpkin-carving tools. that he tried his hand at carving pumpkins. “One day my daughters were watching TV, and they saw a guy carving pumpkins with woodworking tools,” Trudgeon recalls. “They knew I had a whole shop full of that stuff, so they challenged me to try it. About 31⁄2 hours later, I had my first pumpkin.” That was nearly 30 years ago,

and Trudgeon has carved countless pumpkins since then. “I generally do 40 to 50 every fall,” he says, explaining that he often demonstrates his craft at fall festivals. He’s been a regular at the North Carolina State Fair since 1998. According to Trudgeon, carving pumpkins is vastly different from carving wood. “The biggest challenge is the


fact that you can only go so far in here,” he says, pointing to the pirate pumpkin he’s working on. “You get to a certain point, and all you have left is air, so you’re kind of limited as to how far a nose can stick out and what the features are gonna end up looking like.” Trudgeon starts with what’s called a pie pumpkin or cooking pumpkin, because they’re generally a little thicker, allowing for more detailed carving, he says. He does about 90 percent of his carving with a fish fileting knife, he says, but he has a few other tools, including a strawberry knife – perfect for shaping nostrils, he says – and a small, metal tube he uses for forming the pupils of the eyes. While Trudgeon’s creations are true works of art, they have a down side that most pieces of art don’t have – they rot. “I try to carve ’em without getting into the central cavity,” he says. “That way, they’ll last a little bit longer – maybe a week to 10 days.” He also sprays his finished carvings with a mixture of bleach and water, he says, explaining that the bleach delays the formation of mold on the pumpkin and tends to keep fruit flies at bay. The water rehydrates the pumpkin, he adds, which keeps it from turning too pale as it dries out. Trudgeon says he’s often surprised at his results. “Sometimes I just start carving away, taking a few cuts to get an idea of what the face is gonna look like, and then I go from there,” he says. “And a lot of times, I’m as surprised as anybody at what turns out.” | 888-3579

Oregon tourist town considers dumping â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Detroitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; DETROIT (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A tourist town in Oregon says Detroit is giving it a bad name. Voters in the 300-resident village of Detroit, Ore., will decide Tuesday whether to dump the moniker it shares with the Motor City. The ballot proposal would change the name of the town nestled in the Cascades foothills, and best known for its boating and skiing, to Detroit Lake. Builder Doug DeGeorge tells The Detroit News that â&#x20AC;&#x153;Detroitâ&#x20AC;? carries an unsavory image. He expects the measure that he helped get on the ballot will pass, but says the village means no offense to the Rust Belt city often associated with crime, corruption, failing schools and a shaky auto industry. Detroit City Councilman Gary Brown said

Oregonians are making a mistake because the Motor City will one day return to previous glory.


ear Abby: My sister â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pennyâ&#x20AC;? and I live in different states and lead completely different lives. We have grown distant over the years â&#x20AC;&#x201C; my choice really. Penny isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a bad person. She just doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t â&#x20AC;&#x153;getâ&#x20AC;? my lifestyle. I have decided to remain unmarried and childless. A husband and family are all Penny ever wanted, and she considers it an insult that I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want the life she always dreamed about for herself. I would like to spend time with my sister â&#x20AC;&#x201C; occasionally â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but she has a different personality, no close friends and feels we MUST have a close relationship because weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re sisters. Abby, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be her replacement for the friends she is unable to make. Penny complains that I never visit. But when I do, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re both miserable, tend to provoke each other and get under each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s skin. I love her, but it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t


ear Dr. Donohue: Three weeks ago, I had a comprehensive exam. I am a male, 53, in good health. I have no complaints. Nothing was found on the exam. My lab tests were good, except for a high blood calcium. The doctor thinks it might be my parathyroid glands. I know nothing about them or what they do. Will I need surgery (it was mentioned)? I am having more tests. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; J.M. The parathyroid glands are four small glands plastered to the back of the thyroid gland in the neck. Their job is regulating blood calcium. If calcium dips, these glands release parathyroid hormone, which removes calcium from bone to restore the blood calcium level. A rise in blood calcium is an indication that one of these glands is making too much parathyroid hormone. Since the calcium is taken from bones, one of the signs of an overactive gland â&#x20AC;&#x201C; hyperparathyroidism â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is bone weakening. A second complication is kidney stones. Weakness and fatigue are other symptoms. You are like most people who have a high blood calcium. You have no symptoms. Close to 80 percent of those with hyperparathyroidism in its early stages have none. Surgery is the ultimate answer for this. All those

Dear Horse Of A Different Color: By being frank with your sister and telling her exactly what you have told me. You CAN have a less stressful relationship with her, but it will require some compromise on the part of each of you. Explain to her that you do not have it in you to provide the closeness she appears so desperate for and perhaps she will finally accept what you are willing and able to give her. It may lessen the

tension between you. Dear Abby: Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re planning a 50th wedding anniversary celebration for my parents. My son â&#x20AC;&#x153;Markâ&#x20AC;? and his girlfriend, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cindy,â&#x20AC;? have been a couple for six years and have a 3-year-old son. They live in another town and plan to be married after Mark gets his degree. Abby, my father was never told about the birth of Mark and Cindyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s child, per strict orders from my mother. Because Dad adheres to the values and morals he learned as a young man in the 1950s, Mom is afraid he would â&#x20AC;&#x153;have a strokeâ&#x20AC;? if he knew. Mom refuses to allow Mark and Cindy to bring their son to the party because Dad still doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know. All of the other great-grandchildren will be there and included in the photos. This seems unfair and heartless. What can I do? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Anonymous in The Midwest

Dear Anonymous: Depriving your father of knowledge that he has a great-grandchild has not only been unfair to the child, but also unfair to your father. The news will NOT â&#x20AC;&#x153;killâ&#x20AC;? him. He made it through the 1960s, â&#x20AC;&#x2122;70s and â&#x20AC;&#x2122;80s, didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t he? At this point, he may be surprised, but by now NOTHING will shock him. What may disturb him is learning that this was kept from him for so long. You should insist that he be told. Your grandson is not a guilty secret. He deserves to know his great-grandfather while there is still time. And if your mother wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell your father, then you should do it â&#x20AC;&#x201C; before the party.

Dating can damage young teens’ self-esteem Q

uestion: Our 14-year-old daughter is asking us about dating, and my husband and I have told her she’ll have to wait until she’s 16 for maturity reasons. But this doesn’t seem to satisfy her questions. Can you help? We want her to know this is about love, not control, and that we want to help protect her from sexual temptation. Juli: Dating is one of those parenting issues that every family seems to approach differently. First, how do you define “dating”? Does it mean an exclusive relationship with a boy? Going out for actual dates? There’s a big difference between two kids who have a crush on each other and an exclusive relationship involving emotional and physical intimacy. I’d approach this situation by normalizing your daughter’s desire to “date.” A lot of her friends are probably “dating,” and having a boyfriend may be a big aspect of popularity. It’s great to get to know the opposite gender, and it’s OK to like someone. However, explain to her that a lot of the things people do in dating relationships are harmful – such as frequent breakups, sexting, or sharing too much emotionally or physically. In addition to putting kids at risk for

early sexual activity, dating in the young teen years interferes with the many healthy activities kids this age need to be doing. In fact, many kids start dating young just because they’re bored. Keep your daughter busy discovering activities that match her interests, such as sports, volunteering or babysitting. Encourage her to develop healthy friendships with many peers – guys and gals – rather than focusing her attention on one indi-

vidual. Your daughter may still not be satisfied with that approach, and that’s OK. Most 14-year-olds think their parents are out of touch or too strict. We thought that about our parents, too. But in hindsight, she’ll be grateful for your protection during these early teen years.

Dear L.B.: Both cats and dogs share this ability that may involve more than simply possessing a sense of time. This is where the family member comes home at different times rather than on a set schedule. In such instances, an animal’s anticipation of the loved one coming home may be based on its ability to enter what I call the “empathosphere.” Animal researcher Dr. Rupert Sheldrake calls this the “morphic field.” For more details on this extraordinary dimension of animal awareness, visit my website at www.

We retired 30 ANIMAL years ago to this wooded DOCTOR mountain area and Dr. Michael always had Fox at least ■■■ two calico cats at home that we bring inside in the evening and turn loose in the morning. Until now, we have never had any cat problems to speak of. Since Hansom adopted us, he has been a ray of sunshine, and we miss him and his wonderful personality very much. – J.C., Hendersonville, N.C. Dear J.C.: Being an all-white cat would make your Hansom an easy target for predators, including large birds of prey, foxes, coyotes and humans. Calico cats have a more natural camouflage, like our feral cat Mr. Twain, who is a tan tabby.

Your sad story underscores my belief that one should never let cats roam free. Better to build an outdoor enclosure or try a regular roam-around with harness and leash that many cats learn to enjoy. A few cats have no interest in hunting, but still, once they get a taste of the outdoors, they will want to roam and then show much frustration and yowl loudly to get outside if they are no longer permitted to roam free. Some become house-soilers, while others will spray indoors because they have met rival cats outside who invade their territory. Through such contacts, the chances of your cat getting a disease like feline AIDS/immunodeficiency disease and even the plague are greatly increased, as is the risk of him bringing ticks, fleas and ringworm into the home.

Dear Dr. Fox: Our adopted feral male white cat has wandered off and not returned. We can only assume he has gotten lost (we’ve tried ads, signs, word of mouth, etc.) or been unable to return, possibly killed by a predator.

daughter?” is a good measuring stick. Try to find out what his interests are, how he’s doing in school, and what his own family is like. His answers to these questions can reveal much about how he feels about your daughter (and women in general), the degree to which he respects authority, and his own value system. Realistically, a first-time interview is not the most effective means of evaluating a young man’s character. If he continues to pursue your daughter, invite him to spend more time with your family. That will better enable you to evaluate whether or not he’s a worthy suitor.

We often visit our daughter in California and are home alone with her yellow Lab while she is at work.

military, who would make sure that his shotgun was prominently displayed nearby whenever a suitor came calling on his daughter. While she was getting ready, he’d sit each guy down on the couch and say something along the lines of, “My daughter is more important to me than anything. I’d go to jail for her. I expect you to treat her with the utmost respect, or you will answer to me.” One guy jumped off the couch and said, “I’m sorry, sir, but I don’t want to run the risk of letting you down!” and headed out the front door. I’m not suggesting you take this approach. But you could use more subtle means to convey the same message: that while your daughter still lives under your roof, she is primarily your responsibility and you expect her to be treated with the utmost care and respect.

Morocco road trip: Cafes, camels, medinas BY COLLEEN LONG THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


ASABLANCA, Morocco – The dusty road to Marrakech had just started to straighten out after hours of tight curves along jagged mountains. We sped up when we spotted two policemen standing in the middle of the road by a small car. They waved us over. We had been warned about this: Drivers being asked to pay bribes to get through random checkpoints. The mustached man spoke little English but indicated that he wanted 5,000 dirhams, or about $600. My boyfriend, Andrew Strickler, who was driving, balked. The officer, nervous now as he noticed we were foreign, immediately dropped the price to 3,000 and then quickly to 1,000. Andrew started to hand over the cash as visions of foreign jail cells flashed before my eyes. I tried to make polite conversation to explain what we were doing here. I held up a copy of our Lonely Planet guide and said we were journalists. As I did, he backed off and handed back the money, one bill at a time, grinning widely. “You work,” he said to Andrew. “She is wife. She no work. Yes?” He laughed, slapped Andrew on the shoulder and waved us on. Ah, the Moroccan road trip. We spent two weeks on the road in this North African country. The routes are winding, at times frighteningly so. The street signs are in Moroccan Arabic and French, languages neither one of us knows. Still, we figured that navigating the byways was the best way to experience the country. We came to Morocco to visit friends who write for a news website, GlobalPost. We made plans to meet in the southern part of the country after a few days traveling on our own. It’s fairly easy to rent a car in Morocco, and costs about the same as taking trains and buses. But driving gives you more freedom to stop along the way, and the flexibility to change your plans and linger in a location you like. Plus, all the gas stations double as small cafes where they serve strong Moroccan coffee and tea. These cafes, along with most other locations, are filled mostly with men; women do not spend as much time in public places in this Muslim nation. Still, as long as you dress modestly (no tank tops or short skirts), you’ll feel only mildly uncomfortable as a female out on the town. I only interacted with three Moroccan women while I was there, but the men were friendly and welcoming, though often they preferred to talk to Andrew instead of me. Morocco is a kingdom bordering the Atlantic Ocean, just a few miles from the southern tip of Spain. We started our trip without a car, flying to Casablanca from Madrid on the low-budget car-


People crowd the marketplace at the medina in Marrakech, Morocco. Most medinas in Morocco have a marketplace with a thick weave of shops and hawkers who sell and fix everything from cell phones to blenders to carpets.



MOROCCO: www.visit KANZ ERREMAL HOTEL: www.kanzerremal. com/ EL KHORBAT: www. HOTEL DU TRESOR: rier EasyJet, then heading north to Rabat, the country’s capital, by train. Here we visited the medina, a word that literally translates to old city, but in Morocco also usually means a marketplace with a thick weave of shops and hawkers who sell and fix everything from cell phones to blenders to camel heads to carpets. Every city has one. From there we took a train to Fez, home to one of the world’s largest continuous car-free areas. The entire city is a narrow maze, virtually impossible to navigate on your own, especially if you have only one day. We hired a guide who walked us through the vendor-filled passageways. One unusual sight was a tannery with a checkerboard of dye pools, hides scattered everywhere in various stages of drying. Small worker apartments lined the inner corridors. It was pouring rain, so the stench was manageable, but our guide told us stories of other tourists who were sickened by the awful smell. Owners hand out fresh mint to sniff as an antidote. Our road trip began a day later, with a 10-hour drive southeast from Rabat to a town called Merzouga at the edge of the Sahara desert. It took about an hour to rent the tiny blue tin-can car, which cost about $300 for six days. Only stick-shift vehicles were available; travelers should know that Morocco is notorious for highway accidents, so be careful. Andrew did most of the driving the first day, and I navigated using maps and signs, which meant trying to translate from Arabic and French into English using a teeny dictionary. After a while you realize there are so few roads to get from one place to the next that it’s not that difficult to intuit your way. The landscape changed when we arrived at the Sahara. It’s barren and

rocky, like a moonscape, with nothing ahead or behind. In the past decade, hotels have cropped up but they’re far off in the distance from the singlelane gravel road. It’s best to get there before dark so you can see where you’re going. You take a left near a hotel sign and head off into the sand. It looks like you’re heading toward nothing but huge golden sand dunes at the edge of the world. Miles and miles of softly sculpted dunes, called Erg Chebbi, stretched out in front of us. Our hotel, Kanz Erremal, cost about $100 for two, including dinner and breakfast. (For the budget traveler, cheaper hotels can also be found, but you have to really look for them.) The hotel also offers camel trips to the desert, either overnight or at dawn. We took the shorter morning trip, for an extra $50, to watch the sunrise. Getting up at dark, we climbed onto our stinky, grumpy camels as they knelt down. The makeshift saddle had a metal handle and a few blankets. The camels walk in plodding steps; I found sitting with my legs up was easiest for balance. Our guide walked, leading the camels, with us riding, behind him. After about 20 minutes the hotels disappeared and we saw nothing but desert. Our guide stopped the camels and we got off. He warned us not to pet them. (They are not like horses, FYI.) We scrambled up to the top of a dune, and while our guide walked the entire way, I was so exhausted and out of breath I could barely stand. The silence was shocking, interrupted only by the crunching sound of the camels and the occasional

growl. The sky was huge and colorful, splashed with bursts of bluish pink and blazing orange. We then drove east to an oasis called El Khorbat in the Todra Valley. This unusual destination uses tourism as a way to help preserve a traditional fortified village, called a casbah, where dwellings are made from earth and clay. Families still live there, but there is also

a museum documenting local history and various excursions. We took a long walk among palm trees and down dirt roads with a guide who spoke four languages, discussing literature and politics. Back on the road, the landscape turned hillier as we moved on, passing through several poor small towns before reaching Ouarzazate, which is the

Los Angeles of Morocco. Several movies have been filmed there and it has a decidedly wealthy, Western feel with manicured streets and pink walls We returned the car in Marrakech. The rental company dropped us at the entrance to the medina, where we were staying at the Hotel Du Tresor. The hotel was a quiet, cool sanctuary from the rest of the medina, a wild and busy place complete with snake charmers (and snakes), psychics and hawkers of all kinds. Inside the market, we ate huge snails in broth with a toothpick (totally gross), fried sardines (delicious) and tagine with couscous (eh). From Marrakech, we bused to the surf town Agadir to meet our friends, then drove together south to Sidi Ifni, an uncrowded beach spot with imposing red stone arches, eroded over eons by the ocean. A stay at an oceanside resort cost barely $150 for two people for two nights, including breakfast. It was the most peaceful part of the trip, and Andrew’s favorite part. It’s worth traveling there just to stand under the arches.

A simulation of the crash of Continental Connection Flight 3407 is shown to family members of the victims during a National Transportation Safety Board Meeting simulcast in Cheektowaga, N.Y., in February.

Airline partnerships concern NTSB WASHINGTON (AP) — When Elly Kausner, a 24-year-old Florida law student, bought a ticket online from Continental Airlines to fly home to see her parents in western New York, she had no idea the last leg of the flight would be on an airline she had never heard of — Colgan Air. Her e-mail confirmation ended with a cheery “Thank you for flying Continental.” Kausner, along with 48 other passengers and crew members, and one person on the ground, was killed last year when Continental Connection flight 3407 crashed near Buffalo. The National Transportation Safety Board held two-day forum last week probing the safety implications of “code sharing” agreements like the one that allowed Continental to book Kausner a seat on a Colgan-operated flight, and whether larger carriers are ensuring the safe operation of their smaller partners. The issue is an important one for anyone who flies in every part of the country. Regional airlines now account for half of domestic departures and a quarter of the seats filled with passengers. For more than 400 communities, they provide

the only scheduled service. The last six fatal domestic airline crashes all involved regional airlines. Pilot performance has been cited as a factor in four of those, including the Buffalo AP crash. “Regional airlines can no United Airlines flight 747 lands at George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston. longer be considered the minor leagues.

WASHINGTON (AP) — 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 moneyraising 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. It’s one big slice of the estimated $3.5 billion expected to be spent on this year’s campaigning, a record for a midterm election. Financed to a great degree by undisclosed donors — and helped by a new Supreme Court ruling — the deep-pocketed groups have become a dominant part of this election’s narrative. They have reversed past pre-eminence by Democratic outside groups. And they have become a prototype for elections to come. Their effort has been a major factor in the $264 million in spending so far in this election by outside groups — organizations separate from the political parties and candidates. Rove, who was President George W. Bush’s top political adviser, and the two Mayflower lunch partners — former GOP Chairman Ed Gillespie and Steven Law, a veteran of Capitol Hill and the Chamber of Commerce — worried that the Republican Party alone would be no match for President Barack Obama’s superb fundraising. If voters seemed angry, so was corporate America. Obama led Congress into passing health care and financial regulation overhauls and pushed for climate legislation, all of which angered the business community. In the end, the advantage held by the GOP outside groups helped neutralize the financial edge enjoyed by the Democratic Party over the Republican Party. Together, they all have contributed to an explosion of concentrated political advertising — perhaps $1 billion worth — that rivals the annual ad spending on cereal by Kellogg’s or on drugs by Viagra maker Pfizer Inc.

Alexander touts track record with incentives, regionalism ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

HIGH POINT — Latimer Alexander is seeking reelection to a fourth term for an at-large seat on the High Point City Council. Alexander, 53, grew up in Statesville, graduated from Statesville High School in 1975 and attended Mitchell Alexander College in 1976 and 1977. He operates Latimer Alexander LLC, a sales and distribution company specializing in high-end velvets and mohair for the furniture, design, upholstery and hospitality industries. In addition to his service on the City Council, he serves on several local nonprofit boards, including the River Landing Sandy Ridge/Presbyterian Home Board and the High Point/Thomasville Red Cross Blood Services Committee. He also has been active with the N.C. League of Municipalities and National League of Cities, where he served on the Human Relations Committee and currently serves on the Finance, Appropriation and Intergovernmental Rela-

tions Committee. He also currently serves on the Guilford County Parks and Recreation Committee. He has been an active member of the High Point Republican Party since 1980. A member of First United Methodist Church on N. Main Street in High Point, he and his wife, Robin, have three grown children. Q: What role should the city play in economic development and job creation and where do you see incentives fitting into that effort? A: Since serving on council over the last eight years, we have had many proposals brought before council. I have supported those that I felt had a real chance for success to yield both a significant investment in building the tax base and generating a reasonable number of head-of-household jobs. I have voted against many in closed session that never made it to open session because I felt the company’s plans and finances did not meet the city’s minimum investment benchmarks for economic incentives. High Point has a good track record of success for companies that have received incentives. We have been conservative and strategic in our investments. Q: Should the city view the campaign toward regionalism as an overall benefit to

High Point or something that could threaten the city by short-changing High Point? A: High Point has been regional in its development with its neighbors. We have just built a sewer line north to help Kernersville develop a world-class office/industrial park just north of I-40. High Point, along with its partners in Randleman Lake, have completed the lake and water should be flowing immediately. High Point and Jamestown are partners in our Eastside Wastewater Treatment Plant. High Point supplies the transmission lines for water from Randleman to both Jamestown and Archdale. High Point has worked regionally where it is symbiotic and advantageous to the citizens of High Point. High Point has been careful not to venture into bad deals.

Q: If elected what would your top priorities? A: Delivering high-quality municipal services at affordable rates; making sure High Point and its needs are known and advocated for in Raleigh and Washington — we need to bring our state and federal tax dollars back home; making sure citizens understand what the city is doing and how to access the services they need. They need someone to talk with that can help them get plugged in.

Corey focuses on small businesses, ‘green’ initiatives ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

HIGH POINT — Jim Corey is a candidate for Ward 6 on the High Point City Council. A former political science teacher at High Point University, retiring in Corey 2007, Corey is a graduate of Villanova University and received master’s and doctorate degrees from Boston College and Florida State University, respectively. He served for 25 years as an officer in the U.S. Navy and served one year in Vietnam. While in the Navy he was stationed in Latin America-Ecuador, Peru and Columbia, where he says he became proficient in the Spanish language and “gained and appreciation for the Hispanic culture.” He serves on the boards of the Latin Family Center of Greater High Point, Kid’s Vote Guilford County and the Guilford County Human Relations Education Committee. Active at Im-

maculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church, Corey and his wife, Daria, have four grown children and 12 grandchildren.

Q: What role can and should the city play in economic development and job creation, and where do you see incentives fitting into that effort? A: The city should sponsor creation of a start-up small business incubator here in High Point utilizing one of the many empty buildings where individuals with ideas for new products or services could establish themselves in a protective, nourishing environment. They could share services such as accounting, marketing, administrative support, etc. These start-up businesses would provide local jobs and most likely would remain here in High Point. Incentives are a plus/ minus. Dell received incentives and pulled the cork. Incentives have to be very carefully targeted and used sparingly. A business incubator is a type of incentive that is carefully focused. Q: Should the city view the campaign toward regionalism as an overall benefit to High Point or something that could threaten the city by

short-changing High Point? A: We are already regional in the Triad sense. We share regional airports. There are some benefits of regionalism, but we must be careful to protect the unique identity of High Point and not be submerged by regionalism. Transportation is one area that could benefit from a more regional approach. Q: What are your top priorities if elected? A: One of my top priorities is the help lead High Point to be the cleanest, greenest city in North Carolina. A recent National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration report indicated that the past decade was the warmest on record. We must address the issue of global warming caused by human activities so the worst effects of global warming can be mitigated for future generations. The city should promote energy efficiency and the use of alternate non-fossil fuels. The city should purchase and use hybrid fleet vehicles and be ready for all-electric vehicles in the near future. We should mobilize citizen groups to help clean our highways and streets. The amount of trash and litter along Route 311, for example, is a disgrace.

Town offers breaks to spur development MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

PRINCETON, N.C. — In an effort to lure development, Princeton is offering tax breaks to anyone who builds in town or makes significant improvements to existing buildings. From now until the end of 2011, anyone who increases a property’s tax value by at least $20,000 will continue to pay taxes on the current value for at least two years. For example, someone who buys a $30,000 lot and builds a $150,000 home would continue paying taxes on just $30,000. At the current tax rate of 56 cents per $100 valuation, the tax bill would remain $168 instead of jumping to $1,008. “We hope that by giving a break on taxes, we’ll have an impact,” Mayor Don Rains said. “We’ve got significant parcels of vacant commercial and residential lots that have water and sewer access.” Rains called the plan a win-win for Princeton, since the town will eventu-

ally get tax revenue on the improved property. Also, the town’s sewer system is at just 25 percent capacity, so attracting more customers would make the system more productive and profitable. If a property already has water and sewer access, development carries virtually no cost from the town, Rains noted. “From our point of view, it’s a matter of putting a meter in,” he said. Rains hopes the incentives will have a trickledown effect on the town’s entire economy. “If you get more residents, it will benefit existing commercial,” he said. The tax break applies also to commercial and industrial development, with a five-year incentive to companies that make an investment of more than $750,000. “We’re hoping to get structures and with that should be jobs, and if it’s industry, then higherpaying jobs,” Rains said. “If we are successful getting 100 to 200 new jobs, that can multiply.” The incentives program

is geared also toward improving the town’s existing neighborhoods. So-called “infill development” will get a four-year tax break instead of two. Infill is defined as building a home on a lot that used to have a home or on a vacant lot in neighborhoods that are at least 20 years old. “Hopefully, some neighborhoods that need revitalization, it will give them the tools to do it,” Rains said. Rains said he hopes the program will prompt potential residents and businesses to choose Princeton over other options. Neil Jarman, president of the Johnston County Homebuilders’ Association, said that while the incentive wouldn’t draw families from across the county, people already considering eastern Johnston could likely opt for an in-town location. “It’s great that Princeton is willing to step up and concede some costs so we can keep values down so people are willing to buy,” Jarman said.

HOUDINI ON DISPLAY: Legendary magician gets major art exhibition. 4F

Entertainment: Vicki Knopfler (336) 888-3601


Paula Deen named Rose Parade grand marshal PASADENA, Calif. (AP) – Food Network star Paula Deen plans to cook up some fun as grand marshal of the 2011 Rose Parade. The TourDeen nament of Roses made the announcement last week. The 63-year-old chef and cookbook author will ride in the 122nd parade and toss the coin before kickoff of the 97th annual Rose Bowl game on Jan. 1, 2011. Deen says the parade and game have been longtime New Year’s traditions at her house, and serving as grand marshal is a dream come true. Deen has sold millions of copies of her cookbooks and appears on two Food Network shows.


In this video game image released by MTV Games, a scene is shown from “Rock Band 3.”

MTV Games’ ‘Rock Band 3’ hits all the right notes



FICTION 1. “The Lost Hero” by Rick Riordan (Hyperion Books) 2. “Worth Dying For” by Lee Child (Delacorte Press)

NONFICTION 1. “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart Presents Earth: A Visitor’s Guide to the Human Race” by Jon Stewart (Grand Central Publishing) 2. “Trickle Up Poverty” by Michael Savage (William Morrow & Co.) 3. “Pinheads and Patri THE WALL STREET JOURNAL’S List reflects nationwide sales of hardcover books during the week ended last Saturday.



’ve spent so much time playing “Rock Band” and “Guitar Hero” over the last five years that, by now, I ought to be able to give Eric Clapton a run for his money. That’s what I thought, at least, before tackling “Rock Band 3” (MTV Games, for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, $59.99). Yes, I can still pretend I’m a rock star by strapping on the familiar plastic guitar and jamming along with Jimi Hendrix’s greatest hits. But “RB3” also features a much more demanding Pro mode, and mastering “Crosstown Traffic” is suddenly a lot tougher. Those who aspire to true guitar godhood will need to invest an extra $150 for Mad Catz Inc.’s Pro Guitar peripheral, a solid piece of equipment with electronic frets and actual strings. Mad Catz has also developed an $80 keyboard for “Rock Band 3,” and it adds



a whole new dimension to group play. Casual ivory-ticklers can play along using just five keys; Elton John wannabes can learn to use all 25. “Rock Band 3” is the kind of classy production we’ve come to expect from developer Harmonix. It’s great for people who just want to have fun at parties, and for those who seriously want to learn musical skills. Four stars out of four. In contrast, “Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock” (Activision, for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, $59.99) shows the rhythm-game genre at its worst. After too many sequels and spinoffs, Activision has drained all the spark from the “GH” franchise, and the metal-heavy set list of “Warriors” is one of the least imaginative in the series’ history. The major addition is the Quest mode, a tired fantasy in which you and your bandmates conquer evil with the power of rock. It’s nowhere near as rewarding as the career mode in “Rock Band,” and the narration by insufferable Kiss frontman Gene Simmons makes it almost unbearable. One star.

Activision hasn’t yet exhausted its second rhythm-game series, so “DJ Hero 2” (for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, $59.99) still feels innovative. The big question remains: Do players really want to emulate turntable wizards like David Guetta and RZA, just as their parents played air guitar to Pete Townshend and Jimmy Page? Judging from the middling sales of last year’s “DJ Hero,” I’d guess not. But that doesn’t stop “DJ Hero 2” from being entertaining, and its hip-hop-heavy set list is certainly more up-to-date than those in the guitar-based games. The mix includes chart-toppers such as Lady Gaga, Eminem and Lil Wayne. The essential gear is a faux turntable, which you can spin to create scratching effects, with a cross-fader that allows you to switch between two songs. You score points by timing your actions to match on-screen cues, but “DJ Hero 2” does introduce some freestyle scratching and mixing sequences. A second turntable brings a competitive element to the party, and you can also plug in a microphone and sing along. Three stars.
