Council race in Guilford may come down to coin toss. 2A BY PAUL B. JOHNSON ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

TRIAD – The unofficial outcomes of several local elections Tuesday emphasizes the political adage that every vote matters. In one town in Randolph County, the race for municipal office left three candidates in a tie for two seats. In another town, the apparent winner of the final seat on the municipal board came down to one vote. Six municipal races in Davidson and Randolph counties were decided by a handful of votes. And some of the results could change in the coming days as county elections officials perform the annual voting canvass before totals are certified. In Davidson County, the last of seven spots on Thomasville City Council was determined by a margin of eight votes. Challenger Jackie Jackson captured the seventh council seat with 1,287 votes to 1,279 for incumbent George Burton. In Denton, challenger Wayne Plaster captured the second of two town Board of Commissioner seats with 156 votes, 13 more than thirdplace finisher Mary Edwards Hoyle. Denton Mayor Scott Morris appears to have retained his seat by a six-vote margin over challenger Kenny Smalls, or 173 to 167 votes. In Randolph County, Trinity Ward 3 Councilwoman Karen Bridges finished 16 votes ahead of challenger Robin Russell, or 297 to 281 votes. In the town of Staley, three candidates vying for the last two Board of Commissioners seats finished tied with 24 votes – challengers Richard DeGaetano and Tommy Williams and incumbent Steve Rollins Sr. If the canvass doesn’t resolve the tie, the two winners would be determined by drawing lots among the three candidates, said Randolph County Board of Elections Director Patsy Foscue. In Seagrove, the final seat on the town Board of Commissioners came down to one vote – incumbent Barbara Graves received 49, while fellow councilman Gordon Milks got 48. Foscue said Wednesday her office hadn’t determined how many provisional votes or other votes needing verification might affect outcomes. Davidson County Board of Elections Director Ruth Huneycutt said she doesn’t expect provisional or curbside votes to affect outcomes there because not enough were cast to make a difference, though she added that still must be determined by the canvass. | 888-3528


The annual canvass of election results will take place Tuesday at county Board of Elections offices across the state. The canvass allows state and local election officials to certify results and formally declare winners. During the canvass, an elections board reviews all voting precinct reports, absentee ballot totals and provisional ballots that may be in dispute. The canvass creates final totals. When a board is satisfied with the totals, it certifies the results and makes the election winners official.

Salvation Army seeks donated costumes, decorations BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – Halloween may be long forgotten as the holiday rush continues, and that costume could be headed for the trash by now. But not so fast. The Salvation Army Family Store at 1501 S. Main St. needs those costumes for its inventory, as well as other retired holiday decor. “Most kids don’t wear the same Halloween costume year after year,” said Ron Rice, store manager. “Fortunately, we always have a need for them at our store.” The store takes the donated costumes and sells them for parties and school plays throughout the year. Other costumes are put in storage until the next Halloween, when they usually sell out within a few

The store has an area designated for Christmas decor that is popular with shoppers. Anjani Webb, development and marketing coordinator for the Salvation Army, said the proceeds from the donated items go to the organization’s various causes, including relieving local hunger and funding the Boys and Girls Clubs. Donations also allow families to easily recycle holiday waste, Rice said. “We salvage just about everything, and it keeps it Ron Rice from going to the landfills,” he said. “Just because Store manager something is slightly brocostumes.

Coin toss may decide Whitsett council race BY DAVID NIVENS ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER


GUILFORD COUNTY – A coin toss, or other tie-breaker, could decide a Whitsett Town Council race if a Tuesday canvass does not change the vote total. Incumbent Ken Jacobs, a 61year-old cabinetmaker, one of three candidates for two open seats, finished with 42 votes on

Counting: Provisional ballots with address problems usually are rejected, but can be accepted later. Ballots denied because they lack important information or show false information rarely are counted.

That has not happened in many years,” Elections Director George Gilbert said Wednesday. Following the canvass, elections officials will certify the 2009 election results. Incumbent Cindy Wheeler, 47, an executive assistant at Replacement Ltd., easily won the other open seat with 60 votes of 145 cast in the election. The one write-in ballot cast in the race could have been the winner for Jacobs or Greeson. “I’m not thinking of a challenge,” Jacobs said Wednesday. “If that’s the vote. That’s the vote. We’ll have a coin toss or something to decide it.”

At the canvass, candidates and election board members can challenge provisional and absentee ballots. Many voters whose addresses can’t be verified at the polls are given provisional ballots. “We don’t think there are any provisionals to look at in this race,” Gilbert said. The Whitsett race may be the only required recount, Gilbert said. In Jamestown, incumbent Larry M. Lain finished fifth in a race for four town council seats with 16 percent of the vote. Incumbent Frank Gray finished fourth with 18 percent of the vote. The difference was 24 votes of the 1,776 cast in the election. “You see this in many smalltown races,” Gilbert said. “But the rule is a 1 percent margin for an automatic recount.” Lain accepted his loss Tuesday with no thought of a challenge. “We had six good candidates,” he said. “That’s politics.” | 888-3626

Greensboro election changes council; Winston-Salem incumbents dominate ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

TRIAD – Challenger Bill Knight, who ousted Greensboro’s first African-American mayor Tuesday, will be joined by two new council members. While the Greensboro elections brought some change to the City Council, four incumbent Winston-Salem council members won re-election and one seat went to a 21-year-old newcomer. Knight was the first challenger to defeat a sitting elected Greensboro mayor. He won 51.3 percent of the votes to Yvonne Johnson’s 48.6 percent, or a margin of 935 votes out of the 34,347 cast, according to unofficial election returns. Knight,

Forecasters predict coldest winter in decade

Bob Vila endorses and recommends the famous EdenPURE portable heater ÂŽ

Millions of Americans saving big on their heating bills and raving about the “heavenly heat� Does not get hot, cannot start a fire and will not reduce humidity or oxygen Never be cold again

How it works:

By John Whitehead, Media Services

Weather forecasters are predicting the coldest winter in a decade due to the Pacific El Nino effect. This will offset the present 11% lower energy costs and produce very high heating bills this winter. And, at any time the crisis with Iran could skyrocket energy costs. Here is how you can avoid high heating bills while being toasty warm. The famous infrared portable heater, the EdenPUREŽ, has been greatly improved. You have probably heard about the remarkable EdenPUREŽ from Bob Vila, America’s Favorite Home Improvement Expert, who endorses and recommends the EdenPUREŽ and on television features across the nation. The new EdenPUREŽ GEN3 heater heats better, faster, saves more on heating bills and runs almost silent. The EdenPUREŽ saves you big money on your heating bill, but, you will be toasty warm. The heat it produces is unlike any past heating sources. It produces what customers call “heavenly heat�. The EdenPURE Ž can pay for itself in a matter of weeks and then start putting a great deal of extra money in your pocket after that. A major cause of residential fires in the United States is portable heaters. But the EdenPURE Ž cannot cause a fire. That is because the advanced infrared heating element never gets to a temperature that can ignite anything. The outside of the EdenPUREŽ only gets warm to the touch so that it will not burn children or pets. The EdenPUREŽ will also keep you healthy. That is because, unlike other heating sources, it will not reduce humidity or oxygen in the room. The advanced space-age EdenPUREŽ Infrared Portable Heater also heats the room evenly, wall-to-wall and floorto-ceiling. And, as you know, most other portable heaters only heat an area a few feet around the heater. Unlike other heating sources, the EdenPURE Ž cannot put poisonous carbon monoxide, any type of fumes or any type of harmful radiation into a room. For more details on the amazing EdenPUREŽ GEN3 Quartz Infrared Portable Heater, here is my interview with Bob Vila, America’s Favorite TV Home Improvement Expert. Q. What is the origin of this amazing heating element in the EdenPUREŽ? A. This advanced heating technology was discovered accidentally by a man named John Jones. Jones found that a stack of a certain type of copper stored by his coal furnace kept his whole house warm long after the coal fire went out. Through a great deal of research and development he came up with safe quartz infrared lamps to heat treated copper. This and other technology produced the EdenPUREŽ infrared portable heater. This infrared heating process was designed around the three most important consumer benefits: economy, comfort, and safety. Q. Why is it that this quartz infrared heating source uses less energy to create heat than

other sources? A. Actually, there is more than one reason. One of the primary reasons is that heat at combustion level, which is what all other heat sources use, causes the heat to instantly rise to the ceiling. Therefore, the heat is not evenly distributed, causing a very inefficient and uncomfortable heat source. The EdenPURE Ž GEN3 Quartz Infrared Portable Heater does not use burning heat. Once the cured copper heat exchanger absorbs the infrared heat, it exhales the heat into the living area which is carried by the existing humidity in the air. This causes the heat to travel rapidly and evenly throughout a room. In actual studies, photos using infrared lighting demonstrated that the heat was almost perfectly even from floor-to-ceiling and wall-towall. The EdenPUREŽ Quartz Infrared efficiency is based on the distribution of energized air, not on just fan movement. This heat is coined as "soft heat" due to how comfortable it is. Customers call it “heavenly heat�. Q. What are the other disadvantages of combustion heat sources? A. Heat sources that are above the burning level have many unhealthy side effects. One of these is that it creates dry, irritating indoor air. It also burns a great deal of oxygen in the air. If you remember, when you sit in front of a fireplace or a portable heater or close to a heat source, you will remember yawning. This is because you are not getting enough oxygen. This dry irritating heat and lack of oxygen dries out sinuses and mucus in the throat, and makes people susceptible to illness. The lack of oxygen causes fatigue. Also, many combustible heat sources produce carbon monoxide, static cling, and some produce radiation. Q. So you're saying that children or pets can come up to this unit and touch it and not be harmed? A. That is absolutely correct. As a matter of fact, pets are actually drawn to this heat because it is a natural source of heat, just like the sun heats the earth. Animals are much more instinctive than humans.

This heat not only heats the air, but it also heats the objects in the room. It is a perfectly balanced heat. Q. How can a person cut their heating bill with the EdenPUREŽ? A. The EdenPURE Ž will heat a room in minutes. Therefore, you can turn the heat down in your house to as low as 50 degrees, but the room you are occupying, which has the EdenPUREŽ, will be warm and comfortable. The EdenPUREŽ is portable. When you move to another room, it will quickly heat that room also. This can drastically cut heating bills, in some instances, the savings can be substantial. The infrared quartz-cured copper heating technology also produces heat for less cost than conventional services. The EdenPUREŽ heater is now greatly improved. With no increase in price, the new EdenPUREŽ has been updated with the latest technology, safety, and comfort features to provide you with even greater comfort, more savings, and years of reliability. The EdenPURE Ž comes with a comprehensive three year warranty along with a 60-day no questions asked satisfaction guarantee – we pay the return shipping. This product has been listed

1. Electricity ignites powerful quartz infrared lamp. 2. The quartz infrared lamp without combustion gently warms the patented cured copper tubes.

3. The heat from the copper tubing rides the humidity in the room and provides moist, soft heat ceiling to floor, wall to wall without reducing oxygen or humidity.

Testimonials from a few of the millions of satisfied EdenPUREŽ customers The EdenPUREŽ has cut my gas bill to a third of what it was last year. Leslie Wilson, Vancouver, WA I recently had an addition that was over 800 square feet added to my home. When it was completed we had to consider a heat source. We investigated everything from upgrading our current furnace, and duct work, to a vent less fireplace. Then I heard about the EdenPUREŽ. I must admit I was a bit skeptical, however I decided to place one in the room and give it a test. I can’t tell you how pleasantly surprised I was. The EdenPUREŽ heater is our exclusive heat source and is comfortably heating our room at a cost of under $15.00 per month. It is certainly refreshing to find a product that surpasses it’s performance claims. D. Capps, Vancouver, WA With our EdenPUREŽ heater our gas bill dropped so much that the gas company called us and said our gas meter must be broken and they wanted to replace it. John and Sandy Hopkins, Elyria, OH It’s working great and heats the house well. I was so glad to find a company that stands behind their products and cares about customer concerns. I am now recommending the heater to family and friends. Lyn Royer, Sterling, VA The EdenPUREŽ #1000 has saved 40% on our heating bill! My 18 month old daughter sits on it, that’s how safe it is. The heater is also very mobile. Steve G., Binghampton, N.Y. I must say I am well pleased with my new heater. So far it is working just like I had expected. We have a small home, slightly less than 1,000 square feet, so it should be sufficient for our needs. I like the quiet operation of the heater, because one gets tired of hearing the blower or a fan going on a gas furnace constantly. Edna M., Forest Park, GA The EdenPUREŽ really puts out the heat like a little solar furnace. It’s below freezing outside and cozy warm in the rather over large living room area where I’m using it. I have already noticed a 40 to 60% drop in the cost of my heating bills. George B., Triangle, N.Y. I turned my thermostat down to 60. I have 2 dogs and 3 cats and all 5 laid down in front of it and were fast asleep. My chair is 1 foot away and it is like being in front of a fireplace. Carl Cormier, Jerome, ID

Give roundabouts a chance to tame Trinity traffic BY JEFF TAYLOR



omewhere recently I read about a plan to use roundabouts to slow and control traffic flow on Finch Farm Road in Trinity. There seemed to be some concern about the effectiveness of this plan. I’m no N.C. Department of Transportation engineer, but I think they may be onto something here. For those of you who don’t drive in Trinity, I will try to surmise how it works out here. If you look behind the left side of your steering wheel, you will find your turn signal lever. Although not terribly popular anywhere in this area, the turn signal seems to be completely unfamiliar out here in Trinity. Even if they know it is there, most folks just seem to prefer not using it. A little unnerving, huh? Next we have safe following distance, which seems to be about two to three feet out here, regard-


less of speed. At those distances, when I stop, you don’t and our vehicles get to know each other in an intimate way. Tweak the physics all you want, but when you follow that closely and someone stops abruptly, the final outcome will always be a resounding “crunch.” Most disturbing of all is the “speed plus equation.” This is where the average driver sees the speed limit sign but insists on adding an additional 10 miles per hour. That equation then becomes ... speed + 10 + perceived urgency of issue arrival time = 20 miles per hour or more over the limit. Mathematically, it makes no sense but it happens way more than you’d think out here. Everyone says they moved here for the slower pace, so what’s the hurry? There are a host of other issues, but those are for another discus-

sion. I guess what I’m trying to say is the simple fact is that if you put a physical obstacle in the way, folks have no choice but to act against it. Much of our citizenry would just regard a stop light as a dangling box mucking up the view of the sky above their vehicles. I think they would ignore them just like they do laws about passing on double yellow, speeding and safe following distances. I say put those darn circles in the road, reduce the speed limits and save a few more of our illguided neighbors. Help those who can’t help themselves! The most aggravating thing about roundabouts would be all the time DOT would be spending in our little village repairing and replanting them after some speedracer wannabe drove through them while passing on the double line with no signal at 20 over the speed limit (wink).

t has been said that we often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude. As we approach the observance of another Veterans Day, our world seems to be in turmoil and our military stretched thin around the globe, yet we go about our day-to-day business of living and often forget the price daily paid by both military personnel and their families. Veterans come in all ages. We have many who live and work among us who have given a portion of their lives protecting and defending the freedom that we enjoy here in the United States. Whether in your family, in your neighborhood, in your church, or in the local nursing home, veterans deserve our thanks and our appreciation. Veterans Day is celebrated on the 11th day of November for a reason. The Germans signed the Armistice ending World War I at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 (my grandmother was born the next day on Nov. 12). The holiday was called Armistice Day until 1954 when “Armistice” was replace with “Veterans.” It has been recognized as Veterans Day ever since. I once read that in war, there are no unwounded soldiers. Perhaps that is true. Often it is the psychological scars, rather than the physical ones, that haunt soldiers for years to come. Many never recover from the horrors of war. Many, however, assimilate back into their families and become valued members of our communities and our places of worship. In fact, my church, Conrad Memorial Baptist, plans to honor the veterans who attend our church this coming Sunday during our morning

worship service. To simply say “thank you” may not be much, but it is a start LESSONS that is LEARNED worth it. Where Paula would we Williams be without ■■■ servicemen and women who were willing to risk their lives for the cause of freedom? I daresay that our world might be a very different place if not for those who bravely served in World War I, World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Gulf

Veterans come in all ages. We have many who live and work among us who have given a portion of their lives protecting and defending the freedom that we enjoy here in the United States. War, the Iraq War and now in Afghanistan. This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave. I am proud to salute the veterans in my church and in my community. I extend a heartfelt thanks to all of you for being the patriots you are. PAULA GULLEDGE WILLIAMS lives in High Point and teaches at Pilot Elementary School in Greensboro.

This is Matty. Matty suffers from arthritis, and she really needed an exercise program to help her strengthen her joints and her back, and to improve her mobility and flexibility so she could continue working. Matty was unable to do “land exercises,” which are too hard on her legs and hips. When a friend told her about the Arthritis Water Aerobics class at the YWCA, Matty joined --- and it has made a huge difference in her life. That was 15 years ago, and despite great improvement, Matty is still a participant in the Arthritis Water Aerobics program. Her activity levels have increased dramatically, and she feels strong and healthy. She is also grateful for the many friendships she has formed at the YWCA over the years. Thanks to your support of the YWCA and the United Way of Greater High Point, people in our community can live healthier, happier, and more productive lives.

Health care bill to get AARP backing WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; In a coup for House Democrats, AARP will endorse sweeping health care overhaul legislation headed for a history-making floor vote, officials told The Associated Press on Wednesday. An endorsement from the seniorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lobby was critical when then-President George W. Bush pushed the Medicare

prescription drug benefit through a closely divided Congress in 2003. House Democratic leaders are hoping it will work the same political magic for them as they strive to deliver on President Barack Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s signature issue. An announcement from the 40-million member group is expected today, said officials with knowledge of the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deci-

sion. Backing the 10-year, $1.2 trillion House bill is a tricky move for AARP. Many retirees are concerned about cuts in Medicare payments to medical providers, which will be used to finance an expansion of health insurance coverage to millions of working families who now lack it. Also, AARP says its membership is about evenly divided.

High Point museum names new director BY PAT KIMBROUGH ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – The High Point Museum announced this week that it has a new director. Edith Brady, who served as curator of education at the museum since 2000, was named to the top spot, replacing Barbara Taylor, who left in March. The museum became a division of the High Point Neal F. Austin Public Library earlier this year after it merged with the city. Library Executive Director Kem Ellis said Brady was the logical

choice for the director’s job. “I’ve had the opportunity to work with Edith on a few projects over the years, and I find her to be Brady a person who is very organized. She’s very talented at working with people and building consensus, and she’s a great collaborator,” Ellis said. “There’s a lot of work in bringing the museum on board as part of city government, and she’s really hit the ground running.” Brady earned a master’s degree

in public history from N.C. State University and a bachelor’s degree in history from Queens University of Charlotte. “This was an opportunity for me to continue to grow professionally, but also continue a lot of the work I’ve already been doing,” she said. “The High Point Museum is a jewel and an asset to the community. ... Now that we have a new relationship with the city, we’re re-examining how we function and what our role is within the community. We’re taking the opportunity to sit back and think about how best to move forward

in this new situation so that we can be the best museum for this community that we can be.” The museum recently started a strategic planning process that will evaluate nearby properties for possible expansion sites, Ellis said. The city, which is the museum’s primary funding source, assumed operational control at the request of the High Point Historical Society, which continues to own the museum’s artifact collection and support it through fundraising. | 888-3531

Antique truck show benefits food bank BY PAT KIMBROUGH ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – Owners of antique trucks are being sought to put their hobbies to use for a good cause this weekend. The Piedmont Carolina Chapter of the American Truck Historical Society has a show scheduled for Saturday, with proceeds going to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest North Carolina. Patrons won’t be charged an admission fee, but are asked to bring canned food items for the Winston-Salem-based organization,


Saturday’s truck show is scheduled to take place 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Piedmont Triad Farmers Market, 2914 Sandy Ridge Road, Colfax. The registration fee for participating trucks is $10, and the first 100 entries will receive dash plaques. For more information, contact show chairman Bruce Essick at 431-6824 or 664-0974 or at: which distributes food to more than 380 nonprofits in 18 counties. “We try to do something every year to help out in the community, but we do want to try to do this benefit for the food bank. It’s

much needed this year,” said show chairman Bruce Essick. “We’re just trying to get everybody to maybe bring a can of food or whatever they can.” Essick said his group has been putting on truck

shows since 1986 and they’ve been associated with various charitable causes in the past five years or so, including Special Olympics North Carolina. Organizers expect about 125 trucks to take part in the show. They typically see antique pickups, fire trucks, flatbeds, military trucks and road tractors. “Any owner of a truck 25 years or older would qualify, and we don’t care what size,” said Essick, owner of Bruce Essick Truck Sales & Service Inc. in High Point. “There will be a lot of large trucks there.


We’ll have a big variety of old trucks.” According to Second Harvest, one in 14 residents – primarily the working poor and those on fixed incomes – receive emergency food assistance in its service area. It distributes food to hunger-relief agencies, such as food pantries and soup kitchens. Essick said organizers plan to use one of the trucks to deliver donations. “We’ve got a 1916 Republic flatbed truck. It’s a beautiful truck,” Essick said. “We’d like to try to fill it up.” | 888-3531

Radar pioneer dies at 87 BOSTON (AP) – Robert H. Rines, a lawyer, composer, inventor and physicist whose discoveries led to sharper resolution in radar, sonar and ultrasound imaging and who claimed to have seen the Loch Ness Monster, died Sunday. He was 87. Rines died of heart failure at his home in Boston, said his wife, Joanne Hayes-Rines. Rines invented prototype radar and sonar technology that was later also incorporated in ultrasound imaging of internal organs. He donated the radar patent to the U.S. government and gave the imaging patent to the rest of the world to use for free, Hayes-Rines said. Rines held more than 80 patents. The radar patent formed the underlying technology used to guide Patriot missiles during the 1991 Gulf War and produce early warning missiledetection systems and other sophisticated military hardware. He also wrote music for more than 10 Broadway and off-Broadway productions and shared an Emmy for his work on a piece about former New York City Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia.

In this May 2006 file photo, State Sen. Tony Rand, D-Cumberland, talks on the Senate floor during the opening session of the North Carolina General Assembly at the Legislative Building in Raleigh.

Sen. Rand leaves Legislature to head parole panel RALEIGH (AP) – Senate Majority Leader Tony Rand, one of North Carolina’s most powerful and colorful politicians, is leaving the Legislature to become chairman of the state parole commission. Gov. Beverly Perdue announced Wednesday the Cumberland County Democrat will head the Post-Release Supervision and Parole Commission by early next year. Rand didn’t immediately return messages seeking comment on his cell phone and at his Fayetteville office. But a spokesman for Senate leader Marc Basnight, D-Dare, said Rand would resign from the Senate, where he began serving in the early 1980s. Rand, who will make $100,035, will replace Charles Mann, who is retiring into a part-time position, according to Perdue’s office. “North Carolina is fortunate that Senator Rand decided to take this position,” Perdue said in a release announcing the appointment. “He, like me, cares first and foremost about protect-

ing the public but also understands the importance of giving people a fair shot at a second chance.” Basnight has been the leader of the Senate since 1993 and Rand has been at his side almost the entire time, directing the flow of legislation as chairman of the Senate Rules Committee and keeping the chamber’s Democratic majority united. “Tony has been as good a friend as I’ve ever had. And all of North Carolina couldn’t have had a better friend than Tony Rand,” Basnight said in a prepared statement. “I am confident that I speak for the entire Senate when I say that his service and expertise in this institution are unmatched and unlikely to ever be.” Rand, 70, been one of the Senate’s chief budget negotiators for years, championing funding for the University of North Carolina system. Rand was in the middle of nearly every important issue facing the General Assembly in the past decade.

Ex-insurance FUNERAL HAIZLIP FUNERAL agent HOME 206 FOURTH ST. faces new HIGH POINT 882-4134 indictments RALEIGH (AP) – A North Carolina insurance agent already accused of embezzling more than $168,000 from a 90-yearold woman and using the money for himself is facing additional indictments. The state Department of Insurance said Wednesday that 50-year-old Charles Mark Hall faces 12 additional embezzlement indictments and two indictments of exploiting disabled or elder trust. Department spokeswoman Kristin Milam says the additional indictments involve 12 different victims. Insurance Commissioner Wayne Goodwin had said that Hall, who had an agency in Smithfield, embezzled and converted to his own use three annuities from the woman and convinced her to sign surrender forms for her annuities.

Obama nominates 2 judges to Fourth Circuit MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

GREENSBORO â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Sen. Kay Hagan announced on her conference call Wednesday that President Barack Obama has nominated two North Carolina judges to the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals: Judge James â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jimâ&#x20AC;? Wynn, who currently sits on the N.C. Court of Appeals, and Judge Albert Diaz, a Superior Court judge in Mecklenburg County who handles complex business cases. From a release by Hagan:

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The 4th Circuit serves five states: North Carolina, South Carolina, Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia. North Carolina, the largest and fastest growing of the five states in the 4th Circuit, has been historically underrepresented on the 15-judge panel. Dating back to the establishment of the 4th Circuit in 1801, North Carolina has had only six judges serve on the panel. Currently, Judge Allyson Duncan is the only judge from North Carolina. Upon taking office in January, Senator Hagan made it a top priority to increase

North Carolinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s representation on the court.â&#x20AC;? Hagan has been pounding this drum since she was elected, and getting these two appointments is a win for her. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to be working very hard to ensure this confirmation process is smooth,â&#x20AC;? Hagan said. In a written statement, the president called the pair â&#x20AC;&#x153;exceptional public servants.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Their distinguished judicial careers leave no doubt that they will be esteemed additions to the Fourth Circuit,â&#x20AC;? the statement said.

Friend in need is repaid with bitter disappointment

You asked for my help. I gave it to you because I respected and trusted you enough to go out on a limb for you. Please honor your promise to repay me without my having to ask you. â&#x20AC;?Please donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t show up in a new car or with photos on your new cell phone from your exotic vacation until I have been repaid. Please donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t invent a reason to be â&#x20AC;&#x2122;madâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; at me, as if that erases the loan. And please do not ask for another loan while you still owe me money!â&#x20AC;&#x153; Abby, I know youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll say I should have drawn up official papers for the loan but, the truth is, few people expect to be shafted by the people they care about. All someone who owes money has to do is pick up the phone, initiate a payment plan and then stick to it. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Feeling Used in New Brighton, Pa. Dear Feeling Used: Your problem isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a new one. William Shakespeare wrote, â&#x20AC;?Neither

a borrower nor a lender be.â&#x20AC;&#x153; I would be remiss if I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stress to you â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and ADVICE the rest of my readDear ers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the Abby importance â&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  of talking to a lawyer or CPA before lending any significant amount of money to anyone. (By â&#x20AC;?significantâ&#x20AC;&#x153; I mean any amount that you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford to lose.) If papers are drawn up and for some reason the borrower is unable to repay the loan, there could be a tax benefit for the lender. Dear Abby: I have just learned that my husband of 28 years has end-stage leukemia. I worked in the medical field for years and have been around a lot of sick people, but this is â&#x20AC;?unrealâ&#x20AC;&#x153; for me. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in a state of shock, and terrified about what lies ahead. I have told all our children except our daughter, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pearl.â&#x20AC;? Pearl is pregnant and has miscarried three times. She knows her father hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been well, but she doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know the current facts. When her father first became ill, Pearl told me that if I ever withheld any critical information about it from her she would never forgive me. She lives in another state, far from

us. I am worried if I tell her about her dadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s condition sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have complications with her pregnancy. But if I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t and her dad worsens, Pearl might not get to see him in time. Am I wrong to keep this from her? Should I tell her? I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to increase her stress and risk of having another problem with her pregnancy. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Suffering in Silence Dear Suffering: When Pearl first learned of her fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s diagnosis, she put you on notice. Because your other children know your husbandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s condition has worsened, what is to prevent one of them from letting something slip? Call your daughter and let her know her dadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s condition has worsened, but that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s getting the best treatment available. Do not announce that he is dying. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll catch on to that fact as she talks to you, her other siblings and to her father as time progresses. Much as you would like to, you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t protect Pearl from this reality. Better she experience the loss of her father along with you and her siblings than to learn later that she was left out.

IGH POINT – The folks at High Point Bank will debut an event they hope will help with holiday shopping and provide area nonprofit groups muchneeded income. The bank will sponsor its first Community Care Fair Saturday at its operations center on E. Hartley Drive, beside Oak Hollow Mall. At the fair, more than 35 nonprofit groups from mostly the High Point area and Greensboro will sell items that can serve as holiday gifts and/or provide information on the services groups provide. The fair is free to sellers, exhibitors and those who attend. The bank traditionally at the holidays sells bird houses and pottery items made by participants in the Lifespan program in Greensboro and High Point. Lifespan works with people with developmental disabilities to create and sell items. “We had sold Lifespan items with great results,

Hartley Drive Admission: Free Need to know: Only cash and checks will be accepted; an ATM is at the bank. and we talked among ourselves and thought, wouldn’t it be nice to do something with several agencies that have something to sell,” said Jane Blackwell, bank assistant vice president and community relations officer. “Also, we don’t have as much money to donate as we used to, and we know nonprofits don’t get the donations they used to, so ... the idea was to find nonprofits and do a little festival on their behalf.” With no budget to plan the festival, bank rep-

resentatives sent e-mail to nonprofits and were amazed at the response. More than 35 will participate Saturday. Most groups have items to sell, and a few will provide information on services. “You can’t make money as a nonprofit until people know what you contribute to the community,” Blackwell said. “We want to make fundraising easier in the future for these groups.” Of those groups with things to sell, The American Red Cross, for instance, will have practical items such as first aid kits and weather alert radios. The Junior League of High Point will offer its cookbook and take orders for poinsettias. The Northwest Randolph Arts Council will sell tickets to its events. The United Way of Greater High Point will set up a cafe and sell home-made snacks. If the fair is well received and agencies make money, High Point Bank would like to hold it again next year, Blackwell said. / 888-3601

Golfers tee it up for jail ministry hill with his staff. “Moses” carried the Ten Commandments – the ten comABOUT mandments of golf! It TOWN was Brown Councill Mary who so Bogest brilliantly ■■■ played the part of Moses and shared those ten commandments with the golf teams as they prepared to tee off on hole No. 17 (I think) Among the commandments were No. 6 “You shalt not covet your opponents shot,” No. 8 “Thou shalt not lie about your lie” and No. 10, Thou shalt not do wheelies in your cart.” Bingham and I were tempted to break that last commandment. When we arrived back at the clubhouse, I spoke with Setchfield. She spoke of prayer for inmates and their families. Incarceration can be devastating to a family. Prayers for children of inmates so that they do not follow into the lifestyle being modeled for them. Finally she said, “We are trying to make a difference in people’s lives.” Have you heard of the House of Prayer? I hadn’t until Rudy Hinnant called me and told me about their 50th-year anniversary (actually 51 as it was founded in 1958)! Of course I had to find out more about this organization that has been doing tremendous work in our community. So what is the House of Prayer? Hinnant, who is on the board of directors, told me that the House of Prayer is an Alcoholic’s Home Inc., which is a nonprofit Christian recovery and treatment center.” Currently, 22 men are now residents in the 90-day recovery program that was founded by Blair Reed, whose own testimonial of recovery touched the heart of Dick Meisky in 1958. Meisky became the driving force behind this ministry and other Rotarians such as Bob Parrish and Bob Rankin made sure that House of Prayer became a reality. I had to Mapquest the directions to the House of Prayer, which is located on


“Moses” (Brown Councill) shares the “Ten Commandments of Golf” with golfers Jack Johnson (from left), Bill Ledford, Chris Cottle and Brian Ledford at the High Point Jail Ministry Golf Tournament. Riverdale Drive not very far from Castle McCulloch. I thought I was lost in the country until I spotted the sign, “House of Prayer.” The modest campus has a separate chapel and living quarters for those in the program. It was raining as I arrived and, without my umbrella, ran to the big white tent that was pitched for this momentous and joyous occasion. Hot dogs and hamburgers were on the grill as the Johnny Green band played. As I ran toward the tent I “ran” into Tom Barron, executive director for the House of Prayer. I learned that Barron is only the third executive director in the ministry’s history with Dan Rominger serving between Reed and Barron. Barron and I sat down to chat in his office, located in the living quarters, as the rain poured down. Like the Jail Ministry, the House of Prayer (8821026 for more information) is a Christ-focused, spirit-led program that helps men battle the chain of addiction. I asked Barron a question I often ask nonprofits and that is, “What can the community do for you?” His answer was unexpected, “The first support we need is an

obvious one and that is prayer. We cherish prayer. Our faith is in God. We trust for him to provide for all of our needs and he has never let us down!” Immediately, I sensed a certain peacefulness and serenity around this man. He spoke about his faith both personally and in the transformation of the lives of the men who come in broken and leave with a relationship with God. He told me his trust has never wavered and that was especially true five years ago while he was a missionary in Haiti. He was kidnapped and held captive for a week. The other captives felt doomed. He trusted that God would rescue them. They were freed. I was awestruck as he told me this story. What an incredible role model these men have in Barron. As I left I felt a spirituality that I hadn’t felt when I arrived. Perhaps that was to be expected. It is the House of Prayer after all.

ail and addiction. Often those two situations go hand in hand. That is no exception in this column. This is a column about inspiration, faith and passion with a little golf, hamburgers and good music thrown in. Golfers teed up for the 12th annual High Point Jail Ministry Golf Tournament and I was there. The House of Prayer celebrated its 50th year anniversary and I was there. You might surmise that the HP Jail Ministry Golf Tournament was held last month when the weather was a bit more mild and conducive to the breezes at Holly Ridge Golf Course. There have been so many wonderful things going on in out community that I am always playing “catchup.” But, I stand by my motto that “Good news is timeless.” I love being around Dawn Bingham. She is so effervescent especially when she talks about her passion of working with inmates bringing God into their lives. Her passion that she shares with Chaplain Joyce Setchfield through the mission of Jail Ministry is the belief that the only way that a criminal can turn their life around is through a personal relationship with God. A letter to the editor that was published in The High Point Enterprise in September was from one of those inmates that the Jail Ministry has helped. “I have seen the inside of many jails and institutions where my drug addiction has led me over the past 19 years. Never did I imagine that the joy, the peace that I feel today would arrive to me in jail. It did, and I thank the Jail Ministry for that. It has made an impact and a difference in my life that will last for an eternity.” Now that is a testimonial for their good work. Sheriff BJ Barnes is very supportive of the HP Jail Ministry and provided the prayer before the shotgun tee-off for the golf tournament. I arrived shortly after that just in time for Bingham and I to hop on a golf cart on our own mission to find “Moses.” As we rode on the cart path amid the beautiful scenery, Bingham told me of some of the programs and services that the Jail Ministry provides inmates. In addition to Bibles, the group gives the inmates everything from dictionaries to underwear. Setchfield and her group of dedicated volunteers provide one on one spiritual guidance and counseling. They pray with the inmates. They listen. They comfort. It was then that Bingham and I spotted “Moses” on the

High LDL cholesterol is a risk for heart attack


ear Dr. Donohue: I am a 79-year-old female, 5 feet 2 inches tall and weigh 127 pounds. All my numbers are fine except for cholesterol, which is 151. My diet is low fat to no fat. I have nonfat yogurt every day. The last time my cholesterol was up, I cut out the yogurt and had oatmeal every day. My cholesterol went down to 145. My doctor wants me to take cholesterol medication. I would rather not. Is it the yogurt, or just my natural makeup that keeps my cholesterol high? – R.G.


Something is wrong here. A total cholesterol less than 200 mg/dL (5.18 mmol/L) is fine. You must be talking about LDL cholesterol, bad cholesterol. LDL cholesterol is the cholesterol that clings to artery walls and eventually clogs the arteries. It’s a risk for heart attack and stroke. The target reading of LDL cholesterol depends on how many other heart risks a person has. If your other risks are zero or one, a level less than 160 mg/dL (4.1 mmol/L) is acceptable. At age 79, almost no one is such a low risk for a heart attack. If you are at a moderate risk for a heart attack, the LDL level should be less than 130 (3.4). If you are at high risk, then the LDL goal is less than 100 (2.6). And if you are at very high risk, then the LDL should be 70 (1.8) or lower. Risks are things like a family history of heart attacks, high cholesterol, high LDL cholesterol, low HDL cholesterol, high















blood pressure, little physical activity, obesity, diabetes and cigarette smoking. HEALTH I’m only guessing, Dr. Paul but I would Donohue bet your ■■■ goal for LDL is the 130 or 100 goal. Your doctor has to tell you what the real number is. Nonfat yogurt isn’t responsible for your LDL numbers. Genes (your makeup) influence it – as they do everything. Have you stopped eating oatmeal? Why? It can bring the numbers down. A lowfat diet also works. “Low fat” means little red meat and low-fat dairy products. Some exercise, like a daily brisk walk, also helps. Cholesterol is only one piece of the heart-attack puzzle. Sometimes I think we overdo the cholesterol thing. I don’t know your other heart-attack risks. Your doctor does, and those risks might be what’s prompting him to put you on medication for your LDL cholesterol. The cholesterol booklet goes into depth on this subject. Readers can order a copy by writing: Dr. Donohue – No. 201, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 328535475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Can. with the recipient’s printed name and address. Please allow four weeks for delivery. Dear



What’s considered the optimum amount of sleep time? – P.W. The optimum number of hours for sleep is the number of hours that keep you alert during the day. It varies from person to person. If you want an average, it is seven and a half to eight hours. I have heard sleep experts say you should waken without an alarm clock. Then you have slept long enough. I have a hard time swallowing this. Without an alarm clock, I wouldn’t wake until noon. Dear Dr. Donohue: My husband has eaten eggplant every day for the past two years. I am concerned because eggplant is a night plant. He also eats the seeds. Should I be worried? – G. Eggplant belongs to the nightshade plant family. This family has more than 2,300 different plant varieties. A few are poisonous, but the rest are not. Potatoes, tomatoes and peppers are other members of this family. Eggplant has some vitamin A, some folic acid (a B vitamin) and lesser amounts of other B vitamins. It contains potassium, an essential mineral. One cup of eggplant has only 28 calories. Your husband is not going to become fat on his diet. Eggplant won’t hurt him, even if he eats it every day, including its seeds. It would be a good idea to eat other vegetables too.

ECU expects Hokies’ best shot GREENVILLE (AP) – Under normal circumstances, playing Virginia Tech is usually difficult enough to concern Skip Holtz. But the East Carolina coach expects even more urgency from the 22nd-ranked – and increasingly desperate – Hokies when the teams meet tonight. The Hokies are clinging to a national ranking after two straight losses, trying to avoid their first three-game losing streak since 2003 and visiting a team that knocked them off last year by turning the tables on Beamerball. Naturally, the Pirates expect their full attention. “This football team will bounce back,” Holtz said. He just hopes to hold off that comeback for another week and deliver chip-on-the-shoulder East Carolina another program-validating victory over one of college football’s elites.



Capsule look at tonight’s Va. Tech-ECU game. 3C There are plenty of reasons why this might qualify as a tricky situation for the Hokies (5-3), who are taking a break from the Atlantic Coast Conference schedule to make a rare visit to Greenville. Their confidence might be shaken after consecutive losses to No. 10 Georgia Tech and North Carolina. And last year’s 27-22 victory by the Pirates (5-3) – won by a blocked punt returned for a score in the closing minutes – has given them a belief they can beat Virginia Tech again. “We had a tough loss, but I think what we

are playing for is pride in each other and pride in the football team, and we just have to go out and try to get a win,” Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer said. That’ll be much easier if the Hokies can hit a few big plays against an East Carolina defense that is susceptible to them. Ten of Tech’s touchdowns have come on plays covering at least 30 yards. The Pirates have allowed at least one scoring pass of at least 40 yards in five of their seven games against Bowl Subdivision teams, and in their last three games have allowed TD tosses of 43, 80 and 96 yards. “We can not give up the home-run ball,” Holtz said. “I’d like to play one game where we don’t give up a 30-, 40-yard play for a touchdown. ... We can’t win a track meet.”

ast Carolina should brace for some angry Hokies tonight in Greenville. The Pirates play host to 22nd-ranked Virginia Tech before a national television audience (ESPN), 7:30 p.m.). There should be plenty of ready-made drama in ECU’s first Thursday night home game since 2001. The Hokies enter tonight’s game on the heels of two straight losses. Those setbacks knocked Virginia Tech from fourth in the

Associated Press Top 25 and firmly in the mix for a BCS bowl bid into a 5-3 team staggering down the stretch. Tech was stunned 20-17 by North Carolina last Thursday night, so the Hokies figure to be hungry for some prime-time redemption. Add in the fact that ECU shocked then-No. 17 Virginia Tech 27-22 in last year’s season opener, and you have the perfect recipe for Hokie revenge. But don’t sell the Pirates (5-3) short. Skip

Holtz and company posted upset wins over West Virginia, North Carolina and Virginia Tech during a statement-making stretch from 2007 to 2008. ECU should benefit from a fired-up home crowd and it always helps to draw on positive memories against a big-name foe. I think another Pirate shocker could be in the making.





For a speedy guy, football success has come slowly for Sherrod Martin. He had to wait a year after high school before enrolling at Troy, then was hampered by two shoulder surgeries and a broken hand in college. Martin was buried on the depth chart at cornerback in his first training camp with Carolina. The Panthers moved him to safety, only to see him slowed by a bruised knee. Two months of waiting ended Sunday, when an injury forced the 25-year-old rookie into the starting lineup at free safety. Martin responded with two of Carolina’s five interceptions in an upset win over Arizona, a performance that could earn the second-round pick the permanent starting job. Forced into action because of Charles Godfrey’s right ankle injury, Martin doubled Godfrey’s interception total in his 22 games as a starter. Martin picked off Kurt Warner in the second quarter. Then after Chris Gamble forced a big hit to pop the ball free early in the fourth, Martin was there for another pick that set up a field goal.

Dallas Bowl

DALLAS (AP) — The replacement for the Cotton Bowl game has been lined up. Dallas city leaders say the Dallas Football Classic is planned for New Year’s Day 2011. The plan calls for using teams from the Big Ten to play teams from Conference USA and the Big 12 on a rotating basis. The first game will pit the seventh-ranked team from the Big 12 against the sixth-ranked team from the Big Ten. Then on New Year’s Day 2012, it will be the Big Ten vs. Conference USA, with the order repeated in 2013 and 2014 under a plan revealed by bowl organizers this week. The plan needs NCAA approval. Should an at-large selection be required, Conference USA would provide a backup team in 2011 or 2013, and the Big 12 in 2012 and 2014. The Cotton Bowl game is moving to the new Cowboys Stadium in Arlington.

Cowboys play early regular-season finale SOUTHWEST GUILFORD AT PARKLAND


Records: Southwest 3-7, 0-5 Piedmont Triad 4A; Parkland 2-8, 1-4 Last year: Parkland 20-7 Last week: Southwest fell 34-12 to High Point Central; Parkland was idle This week: Just as High Point Central and T. Wingate Andrews share Simeon Stadium, Parkland and R.J. Reynolds split time at Deaton-Thompson Stadium in Winston. The Demons try to close out a perfect regular season against Reagan on Friday, pushing this contest to Thursday. On the surface, it would be easy to say both of these squads don’t mind finishing early. Southwest has struggled to seven straight losses following the team’s first 3-

0 start since 1997. While the Cowboys still can reach the necessary four-win plateau to qualify for the playoffs, Southwest would be the third at-large team in line to be picked from the PTC since East Forsyth and Northwest Guilford each have five wins. To continue its season, Southwest must win this game and then hope there aren’t more than 64 teams in the 4A classification – 32 into the 4AA bracket and 32 into the 4A field – with four or more victories. Parkland surprised Northwest Guilford 21-14 two weeks ago for its lone league win. The Mustangs’ other victory came against Atkins in Week 4. Southwest last beat Parkland in 1997, when Brian Williams scored a pair of TDs in a 22-12 decision. The teams have played every year since, putting the Mustangs’ winning streak at 11 games. – COMPILED BY STEVE HANF

CHARLOTTE (AP) – Jake Delhomme has recovered from a chest injury, but the Carolina Panthers are without a healthy fullback ahead of Sunday’s game at New Orleans. Delhomme practiced Wednesday, three days after getting hit in the chest while throwing a pass in the win over Arizona. Fullback Brad Hoover sprained his right ankle in the third quarter Sunday and was carted off the field. His backup, rookie Tony Fiammetta, later left with a concussion. Both players missed practice Wednesday. Receiver Muhsin Muhammad (knee) and running back Jonathan Stewart (Achilles’ tendon), safety Charles Godfrey (ankle), linebacker Landon Johnson (shoulder) and tight end Dante Rosario (knee) also sat out.

Delhomme returns, but Panthers without healthy fullback


Tar Heels’ Davis, Blue Devils’ Cutcliffe heap praise on each other’s teams BY BRYAN STRICKLAND ENTERPRISE DURHAM BUREAU

DURHAM – Saturday’s showdown between Duke and North Carolina has more potential postseason implications than perhaps any meeting in the storied series. But based on some of the sound bites coming from the coaches, you might think both teams were jockeying for BCS consideration. “This passing attack, it’s got an awful lot of Indianapolis Colts’ concepts and ideas and philosophies built into it,” UNC coach Butch Davis said of Duke’s passing game, which ranks fifth in the nation with 325.1 yards per game. “They flip the field on you with their big-play capability.” Duke coach David Cutcliffe concurred that Colts quarterback Peyton Manning, who starred at Tennessee when Cutcliffe was offensive coordinator there, did take some of the concepts he learned in college with him to the NFL. But in Cutcliffe’s mind, that’s

where the complimentary comparison should stop. “I don’t see Reggie Wayne out there, or Peyton,” Cutcliffe said. “After I saw that, I called (Colts president) Bill Polian and asked if I could borrow his five offensive linemen. He turned me down.” Cutcliffe isn’t above a bit of coachspeak, either. While Davis likened Duke’s passing game to that of a recent Super Bowl champion, Cutcliffe made it sound like UNC’s defense, ranked seventh nationally with 265 yards per game allowed, might be even better than that. “We can’t block these guys. They’re too good,” said Cutcliffe, who also detailed a conversation he had with Duke offensive coordinator Kurt Roper. “I told Kurt, ‘Sometimes you can’t run it. Sometimes you can’t throw it. But you’ve still got to score points. Go figure that out.’ “That’s about what it’s like when you play that kind of defensive team.”

Panther women face Runnin’ Bulldogs in Big South tourney SPECIAL TO THE ENTERPRISE

CHARLESTON, S.C. – The seventh-seeded High Point University women’s soccer team opens Big South Tournament action today at 4:30 p.m. against second-seeded Gardner-Webb. The tournament will be played at Blackbaud Stadium. Other quarterfinals today pit fourth-seeded VMI against fifth-seeded Coastal Carolina at 11:30 a.m., topseeded Liberty vs. Winthrop at 2 p.m. and third-seeded Charleston Southern vs. No. 6 Radford at 7 p.m. Friday’s semifinals are set for 4:30 and 7 p.m. If HPU wins today, the Panthers would play in the 7 p.m. semifinal. The championship match is set for Sunday at 2 p.m.

OKIOMAH’S LATE GOAL LIFTS HPU MEN HIGH POINT – The High Point University men’s soccer team got a late goal from Karo Okiomah to pull out a 2-1 victory over Liberty on Wednesday night at Vert Stadium. Senior Matt Tuttle’s goal gave HPU the lead before Liberty got on the board to tie it in the 83rd minute. HPU could win the Big South regular season title depending on this weekend’s games. “We’re extremely excited to get the win,” said head coach Dustin Fonder. “Liberty is a top notch program, in the hunt year in and year out to win the conference title, so for us to get a win over them is big for the program.” High Point University improved to 9-5-2 overall and 5-1-2 in the Big South. It was the Panthers’ final league game of the season and clinched the program’s second-consecutive winning season. High Point awaits the outcome of Coastal Carolina’s game against Radford on Saturday to find out who wins the Big South regular-season title. If Coastal Carolina ties or loses, HPU wins the championship. Liberty is 9-4-3 overall and 3-2-2 in the Big South. The Panthers close the regular season at Kentucky on Sunday at 1 p.m. HPU hosts the Big South Tournament at Vert Stadium next week, with the quarterfinals on Thursday, Nov. 12, semifinals on Friday and championship game on Sunday.

Hokies invade Greenville for crucial contest THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Who: No. 22 Virginia Tech (5-3) at East Carolina (5-3) When: 7:45 p.m. (ESPN) Line: Virginia Tech by 13. Series record: Virginia Tech leads 9-5. Last meeting: 2008, East Carolina, 27-22. What’s at stake: The Hokies look to avoid their first three-game losing streak since 2003, and are clinging to a Top 25 ranking after climbing to No. 4. For East Carolina, it’s a showcase game that gives the Pirates last chance this season to knock off one

of college football’s big boys, after September losses to West Virginia and North Carolina. Key matchup: Virginia Tech tailback Ryan Williams vs. East Carolina’s rush defense. Williams, a freshman who is averaging 116 yards rushing, matches up against a tough Pirates defense that has allowed only one 100-yard rusher this season. Players to watch: Virginia Tech: QB Tyrod Taylor matched Michael Vick for second place among Hokies quarterbacks with 16 career rushing touchdowns, including two last week. East Carolina: WR Dwayne Harris has emerged as the most

versatile player on the depth chart, scoring in five of his last six games and has 1,054 all-purpose yards during that stretch. Facts & figures: Hokies are making their first trip to Greenville since Michael Vick led them to a 45-28 victory in 2000. ... East Carolina’s finalmoments victory in last year’s opener was the Pirates’ first in the series since 1992. ... Pirates’ three-game winning streak against ranked opponents ended in September with a loss to then-No. 24 North Carolina. ... Since starting its 16-year run of consecutive bowl trips in 1993, Virginia Tech has lost three straight games just twice.

Johnson runaway could be NASCARâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chase nightmare N

ASCAR faces the one thing that its coveted Chase for the Championship was intended to prevent, a title battle that could be decided before the final race of the season. Because the wheels stayed on Jimmie Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s car and were knocked off some others, the wheels have all but fallen off the playoff originally created in SPORTS 2004 to appease those paying a hefty fee Greer for television rights Smith (NBC to start, now â&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  ABC) to show the Chase races. The gimmick that the folks in Daytona created was a 10-race playoff. Their spin on abandoning the traditional method of counting points throughout the season was that the points would remain close during that short timeframe and provide enough drama to keep viewers from defecting to the NFL. They wanted more excitement. They wanted their version of stickand-ball playoffs. They got their excitement in 2004, when Kurt Busch needed a good bit of luck to hold off Jeff Gordon. They got some in 2005, when Tony Stewart held off Greg Biffle and Carl Edwards by 35 points. What they have now is their version of the Green Bay Packers, Boston Celtics and Montreal Canadiens of the 1960s, the Chicago Bulls of the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;90s or the New York Yankees over several decades. What the suits in Daytona didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t count on was a team figuring out how to attack the playoff season. What they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t count on was Jimmie Johnson and Chad Knaus increasing their Chase efficiency since 2006. They didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t count on a driver building up a big lead going for a fourth championship in a row, provoking fans to say enough and

either turn off the set or click over to football or movie reruns or infomercials. Johnson owns a 184-point lead over Mark Martin and is 192 ahead of Jeff Gordon. With three races remaining, that is the points race equivalent of a car slowing down as its engine hemorrhages a gooey trail of oil while sending out plumes of smoke and steam. If that margin remains steady over the next two weeks, Johnson needs only to start the final race at Homestead. Johnson and Knaus werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always so good or lucky. They had to rally from more than 100 points down to win 2006. They needed an average finish of 5 to edge Jeff Gordon in 2007. Last year, they turned the point title chase into a snoozer, building a 141-point lead over Carl Edwards going to the final race and needing only a finish of 36th to win the championship. Last year with three races ago, they held a commanding 106-point lead over Edwards. That is childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s play to this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s margin that gives Johnson the option to play it safe and put it on cruise control just as he did Sunday at Talladega. He says he wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, because he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have much margin of error needing to average a 10th-place finish over the remaining races to win the title. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re showing up to win races,â&#x20AC;? Johnson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Finishing 10th isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as easy as it sounds. It is a tough field of cars out there, and we need to be on our game. So with that in mind, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to race as hard as we can these next two races and see what happens for Homestead and see where weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re at. Then at that point I think we can look at more of a specific strategy. But with three to go, we need to race these next two as if weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re behind in the points and get every point that we can.â&#x20AC;? Johnson laid back last week be-

cause he was afraid that he would be involved in a big wreck if there was one early. He was afraid that he would be taken out by something outside of his control. Able to have more control of his fate this week at Texas and next week at Phoenix, Johnson promises that he will not be in cruise control. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to open my mind up to too many things and let my guard down and make a mistake,â&#x20AC;? Johnson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The same for the team. We still have a lot of pit stops that could be costly. If they lose their focus, they would miss something on the race car. From a mechanical standpoint and a handling standpoint, we really need to keep our heads down and treat this as if we were behind and chasing so that we cross all the Tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and dot all the Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s.â&#x20AC;? Johnson welcomes this weekend and the next two because he can have more input on what can be done to improve the car than he did at Talladega. The extra time devoted to working with Knaus on setups and strategy reduces the time that he can think about the â&#x20AC;&#x153;what ifâ&#x20AC;? scenarios. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think this weekend will be a lot easier for me than Talladega because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to be working on things that actually make a difference,â&#x20AC;? Johnson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At Talladega, there was a lot of free time for my mind to worry because the rules are so specific and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a lot you can think about from a driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s standpoint. But this weekend it should go fast. As soon as we get in the car, we can be focused on how the car is handling and adjustments that we need to make right on through the race.â&#x20AC;? Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s race and the next two wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go fast enough for NASCAR and most fans if Johnson doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t falter. | 888-3519

Toyota pulls out of Formula One TOKYO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Toyota is pulling out of Formula One racing. The worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest automaker announced Wednesday it needs to cut costs and focus on its core business. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Based on the current economic environment, we realize we have no choice but to withdraw from For-

mula One,â&#x20AC;? Toyota president Akio Toyoda said at a news conference. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This has been a very painful decision for the company.â&#x20AC;? Toyota follows Honda Motor Co. as the second major Japanese automaker to withdraw from the sport in the last 11 months. Honda pulled out last December amid worsening economic

conditions. Brawn GP, which took over the old Honda team, won the 2009 F1 championship. Toyota officials called the withdrawal from F1 complete, making a return to the sport when and if conditions improve unlikely. Toyota is seeking to cut costs as it expects to post

an operating loss for the six months ending on Sept. 30. It is due to report earnings Thursday. The company posted its worst-ever loss in the financial year at the end of March. Formula Oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s governing body will review the legality Toyotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pullout from the sport.

Clemson poised for rise in ACC Tigers expect big things this basketball season CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; When Clemsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Oliver Purnell talks about the Tigers reaching a higher level, pay attention. Point guard Demontez Stitt found that out last week after the coach rappelled down from the Littlejohn Coliseumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rafters to kick off the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fall camp. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a surprise to me, I can tell you that,â&#x20AC;? Stitt said of his camo-clad coach who expertly descended about 75 feet for his entrance to the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Midnight Madness event earlier this month. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It just shows that our programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really going to another level; coachâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s getting involved in everything,â&#x20AC;? Stitt said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been exciting since Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been here. Hopefully, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take it to another level this year.â&#x20AC;? Purnell has steadily increased Clemsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s profile his first six seasons. The Tigers reached the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament finals in 2008, breaking a 46-year drought between appearances and went to the NCAA Tournament the past two seasons â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a backto-back feat that hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been done in 11 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s certainly been tough in the ACC, at Clemson, getting our team to the top 25 and all of that, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a lot of fun, and certainly we want to continue that fun this year,â&#x20AC;? Purnell said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And we want to continue the climb, because we feel weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a lot of climbing left to do.â&#x20AC;?

A year ago, Clemson followed its first run to the ACC Tournament title game since 1962 by losing to 12thseeded Villanova in the NCAAs. Last winter, Clemsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highlight was a 74-47 victory over Duke at Littlejohn. The Tigers struggled at the end again, going 4-5 to finish the regular season.

Le Moyne stuns Syracuse SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Christopher Johnson and Laurence Ekperigin hooted and hollered as they skipped off Jim Boeheim Court, huge smiles creasing their faces and seemingly as stunned as the Syracuse Orange at what had just transpired. Johnson scored 17 of his 22 points in the second half, including a 3-pointer with 8.3 seconds remaining, and Division II Le Moyne stunned Syracuse 8279 in an exhibition game late Tuesday night. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got an experienced group,â&#x20AC;? Le Moyne head coach Steve Evans said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Did we ever think that a day like this would happen? Probably not. But we put together a game plan. We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to play Syracuseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s way. We wanted to play our way. It was just one of those days for Le Moyne basketball.

The kids will remember this forever.â&#x20AC;? Wes Johnson, who led Syracuse with 34 points, hit a 3 from the left corner to put Syracuse ahead 79-78 with 22 seconds left. Then Christopher Johnson responded with his sixth 3-pointer of the game, which came from the left side after Syracuseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kris Joseph backed off defensively. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were sort of out of whack a little bit,â&#x20AC;? Christopher Johnson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone was rushing. But as soon as I caught the ball, I saw an opening and I just let it fly. Luckily, it went in.â&#x20AC;? After Wes Johnson missed a 3, Can Ozkaner added a free throw with 1.3 seconds left for Le Moyne and Syracuse had its first preseason exhibition loss since a setback against the Harlem Globetrotters six years ago.

Stitt, a junior, said the Tigers were flying high after beating the Blue Devils and might have become complacent down the stretch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We let our guard down at the end of the season,â&#x20AC;? Stitt said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We sort of fell apart.â&#x20AC;? As point guard and one of four juniors and seniors in the Tigers regular rotation, Stitt knows itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on his shoulders to prevent such splintering this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be a challenge, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m ready for it,â&#x20AC;? Stitt said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ever since the last year, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been hearing it from coach and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve even been hearing it from the players about stepping up into a leadership role.â&#x20AC;? The Tigers will need steadying with their two biggest outside threats from last season gone in K.C. Rivers and Terrence Oglesby. The two combined for about 60 percent (161 of 256) of Clemsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s three-point baskets and more than a third of their points (27.4 combined average of Clemsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 78.3). Also gone is starting center Raymond Sykes, who chipped in five rebounds a game last season. Even without the 6-foot9 Sykes, Clemson figures to have one of the strongest inside games in the ACC with 6-7 senior Trevor Booker as the centerpiece. He finished as the first player since Wake Forestâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tim Duncan in 1996-97 to lead the ACC in both field goal percentage and rebounding in the same season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel he is a legitimate all-America candidate and is one of the top players in a great league,â&#x20AC;? Purnell said. Add to that a group of newcomers that includes 6-9 Milton Jennings, Clemson first McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s All-American recruit in 18 years; former Southern Cal signee Noel Johnson; and Bookerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;littleâ&#x20AC;? brother, 6-8 Devin. Purnell says his goal this and every year is to win at a higher rate than the season before. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think if we do that this year as we look around the ACC, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a chance to win it,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I believe it. Our guys believe that. But weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a lot of hard work.â&#x20AC;?

Stocks finish mixed


NEW YORK (AP) – A late-day slump left stocks mixed Wednesday as investors couldn’t hold on to their optimism after the Federal Reserve gave an encouraging assessment of the economy. The Dow Jones industrial average, up more than 150 points after the Fed described the economy as showing more signs of recovery, closed up 30. The broader indexes were narrowly mixed. Stocks could get a lift Thursday from Cisco Systems Inc., which reported posted better quarterly earnings and sales than expected after the closing bell. John Chambers, CEO of the maker of computer-networking gear, struck an optimistic tone in a conference call with analysts and said orders continue to rebound. The Dow rose 30.23, or 0.3 percent, to 9,802.14. It had been up as much

try’s hospitals, retailers, financial services companies and truckers. But new orders, an augur of future activity, rose to 55.6, from 54.2 in September. Business activity also rose. Still, the decline in employment worsened. The employment tracker has contracted for 21 of the past 22 months. In the ISM’s survey, nine industries said their businesses grew last month, with real estate, construction, corporate

management and support services showing the biggest gains. Seven sectors contracted. The index tracks more than 80 percent of the country’s economic activity. Last month’s dip “may be a sign that the recovery is still struggling to gain any momentum,” said Paul Ashworth, senior U.S. economist at Capital Economics in Toronto. He added, though, that a similar slip in July was later reversed and that the new

report may “possibly be nothing more than a temporary blip.” Investors liked the growth in new orders, and stocks rose on Wall Street. The Dow Jones industrials added about 120 points in afternoon trading, and broader indexes also rose. The service sector’s recovery has been choppy, unlike manufacturing’s sharper move upward as companies restock inventories and demand increases from overseas.

Chrysler to revamp Dodge cars under new plan AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) – Chrysler plans to revamp its struggling Dodge car brand under a new turnaround plan and says the company’s cash has grown by nearly $2 billion since it exited bankruptcy protection in June. Under the plan, the automaker aims to introduce four new Dodges by 2013 and put new exteriors, interiors and engines on most of its current lineup.

The new Dodges include a mid-size sedan for the North American market designed by Fiat SpA, the Italian automaker that now owns 35 percent of Chrysler. That sedan is a key component of Chrysler LLC’s five-year overhaul, which is being outlined here Wednesday. Chrysler currently lacks a competitive product in the segment, the largest in the U.S. car market.

But it will be tough to win back U.S. consumers, who are skeptical of Chrysler’s quality. The automaker’s sales are down sharply this year as a weak U.S. economy saps overall demand for cars and buyers flee to other brands. The 84-year-old Chrysler lost upward of $8 billion last year and would have run out of cash had the U.S. government not stepped in with $15.5 bil-

Service sector index grows again NEW YORK (AP) – The U.S. service sector grew for a second straight month in October, but at a slower pace than in September, as a broad economic recovery creeps along. The Institute for Supply Management said Wednesday that its service index dipped to 50.6 last month from 50.9. Any reading above 50 signals growth. Analysts polled by Thomson Reuters had expected a 51.5 for the index that tracks the coun-

lion in aid. Chrysler was forced into bankruptcy protection earlier this year. Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne said Wednesday the automaker had $5.7 billion in cash at the end of September, up $1.7 billion since the company emerged from Chapter 11 this summer. He also said Chrysler was breaking even in the month of September.



NY joins the antitrust effort against Intel NEW YORK (AP) – New York’s attorney general hit Intel Corp. with an antitrust lawsuit Wednesday, claiming the company used “illegal threats and collusion” to dominate the market for computer microprocessors. Following a similar case in Europe, Attorney General Andrew Cuomo claimed that the world’s biggest computer chip maker paid billions of dollars in kickbacks to computer manufacturers and retaliated against those that did too much business with Intel’s competitors, namely Advanced Micro Devices Inc.

GM’s Opel move raises anger, uncertainty BERLIN (AP) – General Motors Co.’s decision to scrap the sale of European subisidiary Opel raised new uncertainty Wednesday over the unit’s future, astonishing politicians in Germany and Russia and prompting workers to plan walkouts in protest. The GM board’s unexpected decision to call off the sale to auto parts maker Magna International Inc. and Russian lender Sberbank was a startling end to months of haggling in which Chancellor Angela Merkel and other German leaders had strongly backed the deal. Now German workers worry GM will make even more cuts to return Opel to profit than Magna would have.

JPMorgan settles with SEC for $700 million WASHINGTON (AP) – JPMorgan Chase & Co. has agreed to a settlement worth more than $700 million over federal regulators’ charges that it made unlawful payments to friends of public officials to win municipal bond business in Jefferson County, Ala. The scandal over the county’s $3.9 billion debt has pushed it to the brink of filing what would be the biggest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history. The Securities and Exchange Commission on Wednesday announced the settlement.

Oil jumps above $80 NEW YORK (AP) – Crude prices bounced above $80 per barrel once again on Wednesday, a level that even OPEC leaders have said is too high given the fragile state of the global economy. And again it is the U.S. currency that is getting most of the blame. The dollar gave up more ground against the euro early Wednesday, sending prices above the psychologically important $80 level early. Benchmark crude for December delivery added 87 cents to $80.47 a

barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. In London, Brent crude for December delivery rose 87 cents to $78.98 on the ICE Futures exchange. The Energy Information Administration then reported that oil and gasoline supplies dropped, a surprise to most energy analysts who believed that the amount of unused crude in storage would grow. Prices jumped immediately, yet that same report contained the same issues that have raised questions about why energy prices are rising right now.

Merck, now No. 2 drugmaker, set for future buys TRENTON, N.J. (AP) – The new Merck & Co. has become the world’s second-biggest drugmaker overnight with a huge acquisition, but it still has a fat wallet and plans more wheeling and dealing. A day after closing its $41.1 billion purchase of longtime joint venture partner Schering-Plough Corp., Merck already is looking to increase the number of acquisitions and licensing deals it does, Chief Executive Richard Clark said Wednesday. The company has averaged 50 deals a year since 2003.

“We’ll actually do more and maybe even try to double it,” he told The Associated Press exclusively. Clark said Merck is looking to make deals with “biotech companies that have first or best-in-class products that can build our franchises.” It has about $8 billion in cash and investments to spend. Wall Street liked the Schering deal, pushing Merck shares up in afternoon trading by $1.77, or 5.8 percent, to $32.44, making it the top gainer among the Dow Jones industrial average components.


Microsoft lays off 800 more workers

Time Warner profit drops NEW YORK (AP) – Media conglomerate Time Warner Inc. reported a 38 percent drop in third-quarter profit Wednesday after being hurt by declines at its AOL and publishing segments. Even so, the results beat expectations, helped by cost cutting. The company also boosted its full-year earnings forecast and said it remains on track to spin off AOL by the end of the year. Still struggling with advertising declines, Time Warner confirmed that it will cut jobs at its magazine unit, Time Inc., though it would not reveal the extent


of the cutbacks. It expects to take about $100 million in restructuring charges this quarter. Most of the cuts will come at Time Inc.’s news group, which includes Time magazine, Sports Illustrated, Fortune and Money. While magazines continue to see ads fall off, Time Warner offered more evidence that the outlook for its cable TV channels is improving, if tentatively. The company, which owns the Turner cable networks in addition to HBO, said rates that advertisers are paying for commercial time are up by “double dig-

its” from earlier in the year, though still down from the same period of last year. That matches comments Tuesday from Viacom Inc., which owns the MTV and BET cable networks. Time Warner said Wednesday its profit fell 38 percent to $661 million, or 55 cents per share, in the July-September quarter, down from $1.1 billion, or 89 cents per share, a year ago. Excluding unusual items, earnings came to 61 cents a share. That tops the analysts’ average forecast of 53 cents, according to a survey by Thomson Reuters.

REDMOND, Wash. – Microsoft Corp. says it is cutting 800 more jobs. That’s in addition to the 5,000 layoffs it announced in January. Lou Gellos, a Microsoft spokesman, said Wednesday the cuts are being made in offices around the globe. He would not say what specific product groups or job types are affected. Gellos also says Microsoft had already let nearly all of the 5,000 go, in what was the company’s first-ever widespread layoffs. Microsoft also said in January it would continue to hire in key areas such as Web search.

GMAC Financial loss narrows NEW YORK – GMAC Financial Services, the main lender for General Motors Co. and Chrysler Group LLC, said Wednesday its loss narrowed to $767 million in the third quarter, as its auto lending unit made money while its home mortgage unit reported another loss. The company’s earnings report comes a week after the Treasury Department said it was in talks with the New York-based lender over a third round of taxpayer aid. A Treasury spokeswoman declined to offer any updates on the talks Wednesday.

Two-show opener



High Point Theatre’s 2009-10 season begins this weekend ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT


IGH POINT – The High Point Theatre’s 2009-2010 season opens with two shows this weekend. The Little River Band plays Friday night, and “The Spencers: Theater of Illusion” is the Saturday night show. The Little River Band, formed in 1975 in Australia, was popular in the late 1970s and early 1980s for songs including “Lady,” “Cool Change” and “Take it Easy on Me.” During that period, the band sold 25 million records and had 16 hit singles, eight of which reached the Top 10. The group continued to perform with many lineup changes. The current band includes lead vocalist and bass player Wayne Nelson and lead guitarist Stephen Housden, both of whom were in the band in the late 1980s. The Little River Band has continued to release records, and its most recent was “We Call It Christmas” in 2008. The Spencers – the husband and wife duo of Kevin and Cindy – on Saturday night will give a show designed to showcase the art of C. Spencer illusion, as opposed to a traditional magic show, with a magician and assistant. They are the only artists to be named Performing Arts Entertainer of the Year for six consecutive years, and they twice were named America’s Best Entertainers. In their shows, people seem to levitate, walk

LOS ANGELES (AP) – When Adam Arkin signed on for “Sons of Anarchy,” he didn’t have reservations about his role as a slick white separatist or the FX drama’s dark heart. But he admits to feeling a bit “intimidated” about working with fellow series newcomer Henry Rollins, actor and musician of Black Flag punk-rock fame. “I’m a 50-something square character actor,” Arkin said. “There was every possibility he’d have said, ‘We’ll do our work together, but don’t talk to me. I don’t want to hear any of your bourgeois domestic patter.’ ” Instead, Arkin found Rollins to be “incredibly warm” and a colleague who approached his work with discipline. Arkin has equally kind words about “Sons of Anarchy” and the cast that welcomed him despite his role as a big troublemaker in season two. He’s careful to correct a questioner who refers to the law-breaking motorcycle gang members as the drama’s heroes. “They’re not heroes; they’re the protagonists,” said Arkin, whose wide-ranging TV and film career includes the latest Coen brothers release, “A Serious Man.” His interpretation of Ethan Zoebelle, his “Sons of Anarchy” character, emerged after discussions with series creator Kurt Sutter. Charlie Hunnam, Katey Sagal (Sutter’s wife) and Ron Perlman star in the Tuesday night show. “We talked about my own ethnicity and the irony of having someone with a Jewish background playing a white separatist, nationalist character,” Arkin said.

Cy the Cynic’s doctor advised him that jogging would add years to his life. Cy told me he jogged a mile and, sure enough, he feels a lot older already. “Actually, I like jogging,” Cy said, “except for that long walk back.” From the way Cy played today’s slam, his memory needs jogging. Cy let East-West push him to six hearts, and when West led the three of spades, The Cynic ruffed and drew trumps. He took the top diamonds to pitch a club from dummy, ruffed a diamond, ruffed a spade and ruffed a diamond, as East-West followed. Cy next led the ace and a low club. East showed out, and West got two clubs.

DAILY QUESTION You hold: S None H A Q J 5 3 D A K 5 2 C Q 5 4 2. Neither side vulnerable. Your partner deals and opens three clubs. The next player passes. What do you say?

FOUR DIAMONDS If Cy recalled the fall of the East-West cards, he could save 1,530 points. West had no trumps, four diamonds and (from his opening lead) at most five spades, hence four clubs. When Cy starts the clubs, he must play a low club from both hands. If West wins, he must return a club from the king or concede a ruff-sluff; if East’s ten wins, he must yield a ruff-sluff.

ANSWER: Bid 5NT, the “Grand Slam Force.” This convention has been around since the early days of bridge. Your partner should bid a grand slam with two of the top three honors in the agreed trump suit (clubs, by implication). He’ll be a favorite at seven clubs if he holds 7 6, 2, J 7 3, A K 10 8 7 6 3. South dealer Both sides vulnerable


ONE STAR: It’s best to avoid conflicts; work behind the scenes or read a good book. Two stars: You can accomplish but don’t rely on others for help. Three stars: If you focus, you will reach your goals. Four stars: You can pretty much do as you please, a good time to start new projects. Five stars: Nothing can stop you now. Go for the gold.

Let’s take care of our local businesses first I have been thinking about this debacle of an investment with the Dell corporation. I heard that the total package of local and state investments could have totaled $300 million. Now I know that the state was not going to write a check out for that amount, but I also know that Dell could have received in benefits that amount for investing in this state. I am upset that Dell is moving to Mexico and closing the local business. The local and state governments should look at this as an education. Let’s say that instead of one company getting all those incentives we spread that money around to possibly 300 companies. Let’s say we incentivised all companies to grow to 20 employees and all companies to get to $1 million in yearly sales. They would receive some tax advantages, or some investment relief. If they all survived, then we would have 6,000 employed workers at this time. If only half of the companies survived, we would still have 3,000 employed. We need to find ways of growing, helping and supporting our local businesses. They are the backbone of our economy. The more we take care of local, the less we have to search for companies to come here. If we make this area business and company friendly, then they

Founded in 1885



ast year, change was the operative word in national politics. This year, the operative words in local politics were change, no change and a little bit of change – depending on which area municipality you’re talking about. On Tuesday, if election results stand, voters brought big changes – and huge surprises – to city governments in Trinity and Greensboro as they turned out incumbents and elected new mayors. In Trinity, former City Councilman Carlton Boyles defeated Mayor Fran Andrews and write-in candidate Councilman Kelly Grooms. Trinity’s mayor’s race was particularly interesting because of Grooms’ write-in candidacy. Grooms trailed the three-candidate field with about 25 percent of the votes, but he’ll have two years left on his City Council term. With Andrews receiving 29 percent of the votes and Boyles capturing 46 percent, the question up for post-election debate is: Did Grooms’ candidacy cost Andrews in her re-election bid and open the door for Boyles to win with less than a majority of votes? No change was the rule in Wallburg as voters returned all incumbents. In Denton, it was a little bit of change as Councilwoman Deanna Grubb was re-elected, but voters replaced Councilman Stewart Sexton with Wayne Plaster. In Denton’s mayoral race, voters kept Mayor Scott Morris in office despite a stiff challenge by Kenny Small. Morris won 173 to 167. In Thomasville, voters wanted a little change on the seven-member City Council by replacing members George Burton and Neal Grimes with challengers Ronald Bratton and Jackie Jackson. In a four-way mayoral race, Mayor Joe Bennent easily won re-election. Also in Thomasville, voters said they want no change in the lengths of terms for the mayor and City Council posts. Voters resoundingly defeated proposals to change term lengths to four years instead of two. So in Thomasville, the mayor and the entire City Council will do this again in two years, and we say that’s the way it should be for municipal elections.

Justice, truth take backseat A nthony McKinney got a life sentence for running down the street. The suburban Chicago street down which he ran, on Sept. 15, 1978, took him near the spot where security guard Donald Lundahl had earlier been shot to death. Police, still on the scene investigating, arrested McKinney, 18, who said he was running from gang bangers. With no physical evidence linking him to the crime, they let him go. But they did not forget him. Eventually, police turned up two men who said they had witnessed the crime, one of whom said that from 50 yards away, he saw McKinney, who had no history of violent crime, point a shotgun and say, “Your money or your life.” Detectives re-arrested McKinney. After a long session in the interrogation room, he signed a confession. At trial he recanted, saying he had been coerced. At the time of the killing, he said, he was home watching the Ali-Spinks fight. His father corroborated this, not that it helped. McKinney was convicted and sentenced to life. We are indebted to the Medill Innocence Project, which gives journalism students at Northwestern University real world experience in investigative reporting, for the preceding account. And also for the following findings, based on a three-year investigation begun in 2003: • McKinney was indeed running from gang bangers that night. Students found two of them who admitted chasing him, angry that he had damaged their car; • The “eyewitnesses” say police beat them into falsely fingering McKinney. Both had originally told police they were home watching the Ali-Spinks fight until the ninth round, which would have made it impossible for them to witness the murder; • The crime scene is a busy street. It is not possible to hear anything said or shouted there from 50 yards away; • The now-retired police officer who led the investigation had a jacket full of brutality complaints and once faced federal charges for allegedly beating a suspect; • A convicted killer, Anthony Drake, told

students he was “present” at the murder – and that McKinney was not. Students finished their investigation in 2006. McKinney, now 49, still languishes behind bars, his conviction under review. Meanwhile, not content with OPINION having two crimes (i.e., the apparently still-unsolved murder Leonard of Donald Lundahl and the railPitts roading of Anthony McKinney) ■■■ on her hands, the prosecutor is busy committing a third. She’s trying to kill the messenger. Though students have already turned over copies of videotaped interviews with witnesses, affidavits and other evidence from their investigation, Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez wants more. Her office has subpoenaed personal information about the students and the class: copies of their expense reports, e-mails, class syllabi, grades and grading criteria. Through a spokeswoman, Alvarez has portrayed this as a simple attempt to gather all pertinent information. But it isn’t. They already have that. What it is, is a fishing trip. What it is, is overreach. What it is, is a crude attempt at intimidation by officers of a justice system whose shoddy work stands exposed. What it is, is a warning to the next person who dares dig up unwelcome news. And what it is, is a fresh reminder, in this era where some of us think we can get by with bloggers and “citizen reporters,” of why good journalism matters, still. Sally Daly, Alvarez’s spokeswoman, told the New York Times, “At the end of the day, all we’re seeking is the same thing these students are: justice and truth.” As far as is known, she said this with a straight face. The Innocence Project is fighting the subpoena. Here’s to their success. LEONARD PITTS JR., winner of the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for commentary, is a columnist for the Miami Herald. Email him at
