HIGH POINT – Grab your fold-up chairs, hats and scarves on Tuesday night. It’s time for the city’s annual Christmas parade. A colorful mix of marching bands, beauty queens, antique cars and elaborate floats will roll through town beginning at 6 p.m. for the 2009 High Point Holiday Festival Parade. Sponsored by North State Communications, the event begins at the intersection of E. Green Drive and Main Street and continues along Main Street to Montlieu Avenue. Ronald McDonald, the popular face

of McDonald’s, will serve as the grand marshal for this year’s parade, which dates back before World War I. Seven professional floats and approximately 50 non-professional floats designed by local organizations will make an appearance, according to Sharon Smith, parade manager with the Guilford Merchant’s Association. “We have a number of churches that build floats each year, and their youth groups become very involved,” she said. “They also serve as one of the staples of our parade. Their ideas are unbelievable.” Smith said yearly staples of the parade also will be included such as five high school marching bands and

Christmas queens from each school. Awards for best performances in bands, dance groups and best design for floats will be awarded that night, along with several other awards. “The parade happens after most people get off of work, so people can bring their children,” she said, noting the event is one of the state’s largest evening parades. “It’s a wonderful way to get into the spirit of Christmas and Thanksgiving.” And don’t forget about the grand finale of the parade. “Santa will be there, and he is always everyone’s favorite,” she said.

Primaries gain importance as parties keep district footholds. 1B BY PAUL B. JOHNSON ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

Preschool pageant Family members and other guests react to a performance at the First Methodist preschool Thanksgiving pageant on Thursday.

TRIAD – The brisk pace of announcements by candidates seeking a range of offices in the region might make you think that the next general election is almost upon us. Instead, it’s a year away. While the actual calendar might show that the 2010 general election is 12 months from taking place, the reality of the political calendar compels candidates to unveil their intentions and start raising money now. The pace is intensified by candidates, especially on the Republican side, who face primary battles in May to advance as the party nominee to the general election. “It’s an increasing trend, in terms of getting your name out there early,” said Matthew DeSantis, assistant professor of political science at High Point University. This month, three Republican candidates have indicated plans to run for Davidson County sheriff, while another three High Point Republicans say they will seek the 61st State House District seat being vacated after next year by Rep. Laura Wiley, R-Guilford. High Point furniture showroom manager Cathy Brewer Hinson will challenge U.S. Rep. Howard Coble, R-6th, Coble’s first Republican primary challenge since he was elected 25 years ago. Democratic challenger Marcus

TRINITY – Trinity and Archdale city councils are awaiting a decision by the Randolph County Board of Commissioners on whether the county will financially support a preliminary engineering sewer study to build a wastewater treatment plant south of Trinity – a move officials say will save Trinity taxpayers a lot of money.

BIG HONOR: Randolph Principal of the Year announced. 1B

Key dates for the 2010 election season: Feb. 8-26: Filing by candidates May 4: Party primaries June 22: Primary runoffs (if necessary) Nov. 2: General election Brandon will take on Rep. Earl Jones, D-Guilford, in the 60th State House District primary. The campaigns aren’t limited to primaries. Guilford County Republican Sheriff BJ Barnes will be challenged a former aide, Democrat Harlon Costner. The need to raise campaign funds compels candidates to declare earlier in election cycles, DeSantis said. “You’re going to want to get your name out there as soon as possible to raise as much money, to create as much early momentum, to make contacts,” he said. Another reason for the early announcements by Republican candidates reflects a possible shift in the political fortunes for the party, said Ran Coble, executive director of the nonpartisan N.C. Center for Public Policy Research in Raleigh. The success of GOP challengers for governor in Virginia and New Jersey earlier this month has given Republicans hope that 2010 will be a turnaround year, he said. “Republicans feel right now that 2010 is going to be a good year for them to run. When it looks like it’s going to be a good year, it’s easier to recruit early,” he said. | 888-3528

Former governor of Alaska and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin (right) arrives at the Asheville airport on Sunday afternoon for a visit with the Graham family. Franklin Graham was there to meet her at the airport.

Sarah Palin dines with Rev. Billy Graham in N.C. ASHEVILLE (AP) – Sarah Palin was having dinner Sunday with the Rev. Billy Graham a day before a planned book tour stop in eastern North Carolina. The former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee flew into Asheville and then went to Billy Graham’s mountaintop home in nearby Montreat for dinner, said Jeremy Blume, a spokesman for Graham’s son, to come by,” Blume told The CharFranklin.

She accompanied him as Samaritan’s Purse, a Boone-based international relief agency he heads, delivered 44,000 pounds of groceries to Alaskan families who had been hit by a harsh winter in villages along the frozen Yukon River.

Rail car loaded with acid Charlotte experiencing influx of coyotes derails in central S.C. mediate danger exists because the tank car containing the acid had not leaked. Sulfuric acid gives off harmful fumes that can burn the skin and eyes. About 50 emergency workers on the scene had gas masks ready. Robin Chapman, a spokesman for Norfolk Southern, says that the train had 10 cars in all, including two locomotives. Chapman says that the train was traveling from Linwood to Savannah, Ga.

CHARLOTTE (AP) – The North Carolina city that supports Panthers and Bobcats wants no part of the real fourlegged predators roaming its neighborhoods. The Charlotte Observer reported Sunday that coyotes are terrorizing residents, who fear for their small children and animals. Those residents are also discovering that county animal control doesn’t respond to coyote calls, referring residents to state officials

and private contractors who trap wildlife for a fee. Several communities on the city’s south side have been on alert. Residents in one neighborhood say a cat was eaten by a coyote several weeks ago, prompting the pet owner to circulate a flier warning residents. Coyotes are not generally aggressive toward people, though a Union County man was bitten last year by a rabid one.

Man who claimed disability spotted on TV LOS ANGELES (AP) – California tax officials say an interior designer’s false disability claim was uncovered when he was spotted on a home improvement television show. Fifty-six-year-old Ronald Hunt of Los Angeles was sentenced Tuesday to 200 hours of community

service and ordered to pay more than $180,000 in restitution, unpaid taxes and fines. He pleaded guilty to two felony counts of fraud. The state’s Franchise Tax Board says Hunt falsely claimed he was disabled for three years and collected almost $150,000

in benefits, while earning about $400,000 in income as an interior designer. An employee of the insurance company that was paying Hunt’s benefits saw Hunt on a Home and Garden Television program and reported him to the state Department of Insurance.

BOONE – An Appalachian State student from Matthews was killed in Boone early Sunday morning, in what police say was an accidental shooting at a college party. Jay Derby, 20, was a graduate of Butler High School and studying business in college, his father Mike Derby said. The last time Derby talked to his son, Jay was planning his trip home for Thanksgiving break. “He was doing well in school, his grades were good, he was looking forward to coming home,” Derby said. Jay was a sophomore. At about 5:30 a.m. Sunday, two Matthews police officers knocked on the Derbys’ door. “They said that Jay was

The off-campus complex caters to students, according to a Web site advertising its units. Paramedics found Jay dead when they arrived. Police have turned the case over to the local district attorney to decide if criminal charges are warranted, according to the Observer’s news partner WCNC. Now, instead of preparing to spend Thanksgiving with his son, Derby is planning his funeral. When Jay was young, Derby coached him on baseball teams and taught him to saltwater fish, which he said the pair loved doing together.

WILMINGTON (AP) – A wide range in pay for local managers of North Carolina’s ABC boards and the reluctance of boards to make that information public has drawn the attention of the governor. The Star-News of Wilmington reported Sunday that its inquiry into salaries at New Hanover County and other ABC boards prompted the chairman of the state ABC commission to take the matter to Gov. Beverly Perdue’s office, which ordered a closer look.

Judge: Indicted sheriff can keep job for now LINCOLNTON (AP) – A judge’s ruling means a North Carolina sheriff facing obstruction of justice charges can keep his job for now. Superior Court Judge Richard Boner on Friday refused to suspend Sheriff Tim Daugherty immediately, saying there is no proof he isn’t performing his duties. Daugherty has been indicted on two counts of felony obstruction of justice.

“The governor has directed us to examine the issue statewide, because it is critical that there is transparency and good stewardship of taxpayer dollars at all levels of government,� Chairman Jon Williams said in a statement last week. The newspaper reported that Billy Williams, the administrator of the New Hanover Alcoholic Beverage Control board who has worked there for nearly 42 years, makes $232,200 a year. His son, Bradley Williams, an em-

ployee since 1994 and the assistant administrator, earns $115,500 annually. The Triad Municipal ABC in Winston-Salem and the Durham County ABC – both roughly similar in size and sales to New Hanover – pay their managers $96,000 and $112,000, respectively. A General Assembly report from December 2008 evaluating the state’s ABC system notes that local boards with profits above 10 percent tend to be in urban or tourist areas. New Hanover County is both.

BELMONT – A Belmont pastor driving his church van home from a golf trip was killed and seven people were seriously injured Saturday in a three-vehicle wreck in Lancaster County. The Lancaster County Coroner’s Office did not immediately identify the dead man, but members of Southpoint Free Will Baptist Church identified him as the Rev. Ronnie Wilson, who has led the congregation since 1999 and helped construct a new church building in 2005. A man who identified himself as a deacon at the church told News Channel 36, the Observer’s news partner, that Wilson and four other men were coming back from a golf trip in Myrtle Beach when they got into the wreck. Six people were flown to Carolinas Medical Center, and one was taken there by ambulance. The S.C. Highway Patrol is still investigating what happened when the van collided with a 2000 Ford pickup and a 1995 Ford 150 pickup pulling a utility trailer.

JOHN HOOD: N.C. Democrats hope for 2008 repeat in 2010 Senate race. TOMORROW

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


Monopolistic insurance firms run health care With all the misinformation that has been spread about health care reform proposals, I would like to share a family incident with readers. My daughter is a nurse at a hospital in Spartanburg, S.C. Through her hospital, she buys health insurance for herself, her husband and their two children Her 16-month-old daughter recently had a big drop in her platelet count. The pediatrician said that she would need a series of transfusions to raise the count. My daughter’s hospital performs that procedure but requires that the child be admitted to the hospital. My daughter was told by the health insurance company that they would not pay for an admittance even though it would be for less than 24 hours. Her only choice was to take the child to Charleston which is three hours away. At the Charleston hospital, her co-pay costs were 50 percent instead of 20 percent at her hospital because that hospital is not in the insurance company’s network. After going through one transfusion, my daughter received a call from the insurance company informing her that the later transfusions could be done at a Greenville hospital. This would only be 30 minutes away. So the procedure was scheduled at Greenville. On the morning of the scheduled transfusion, an insurance company bureaucrat called to say the company would not pay for the procedure in Greenville. So they had to reschedule and go back to Charleston. The point here is that my daughter’s family, with insurance, did not have control over choosing the doctor or the hospital for family treatment. Insurance company bureaucrats made those personal decisions. Insurance companies have monopolistic control over our health care. A fair public option would provide consumers with competitive choices. BILL MCINNIS High Point

Stand up this holiday season



to Big Oil

We need health care, but this plan raises concerns It may surprise some readers, but I disagree with most of Obama’s actions since taking office. However, I am appreciative of his concern that every American has health insurance. These present bills that are being considered in Congress cause me great concern. I am a 71-year-old handicapped man. Although I would be considered by some a severely handicapped person, I have been able to make it through life without any government assistance, that is except with some help with my education. I am now on Social Security and Medicare which I have earned. My best understanding is that this elder care will be greatly detrimental to our Medicare. It is a 1,100 page document that not even all the members of Congress have read. I understand that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has been reluctant to make it available to the public. I have heard that under the new care plan that a group of bureaucrats will decide what treatments we elderly folks can or cannot receive. What I really want to know is if we will have the same health care coverage that the president and members of Congress will have? If not, why not?

The public should not let Big Oil, gas and flying in the sky get all their hard-earned money this holiday season. This is one holiday season we the people need to say enough is enough, and stay off the highways and off airplanes as much as is possible. People can have mom to mail them a fruit cake or pecan pie.

Terror trials will restore our faith in rule of law “We (should) wrap him in bacon and deep fry him at a state fair while Lee Greenwood stabs him in the face.” – Jon Stewart of “The Daily Show” on confessed 9/11 mastermind Khalid Shaikh Mohammed


nd seriously now, who doesn’t agree? You’d have to be defective in your humanity not to. Mohammed plotted the greatest act of mass murder in American history. Who among us wouldn’t like a piece of this guy? Indeed, if critics of Attorney General Eric Holder’s decision to try him and OPINION his terrorist confederates in a New Leonard York City courtPitts room would be hon■■■ est with themselves, they’d admit that this is what drives their condemnation, not questions of security, fears of acquittal or other obfuscatory concerns they’ve raised. No, the baseline here is the understandable belief that these thugs, these gangsters of Islam, have no right to a trial, that the American legal system, with all its protections for the accused, all its rights and procedures and niceties, is more than they deserve. Americans have always been ambivalent about the ability of our justice system to give bad

people what they’ve got coming. That’s why the action movie almost always ends with the bad guy shot, impaled or fed into a wood chipper. Seeing him led away in handcuffs simply doesn’t impart the same visceral sense of just desserts. But you have to wonder: Are our emotional needs the most important consideration here? It’s worth remembering that even the architects of the greatest barbarism in history had their day in court. After burning away 11 million lives, the leaders of the Nazi regime found themselves facing not summary execution, but a trial before a military tribunal in Nuremberg, Germany. As prosecutor Robert Jackson put it: “That four great nations, flushed with victory and stung with injury, stay the hand of vengeance and voluntarily submit

their captive enemies to the judgment of the law is one of the most significant tributes that power has ever paid to reason.” And when the trials were over and the verdicts delivered – death or imprisonment for most, three were acquitted – the New York Times editorialized as follows: “These sentences can neither atone for all the evil these men have brought into the world nor undo any part of it. But they help to assuage the conscience of mankind and to restore to honor the concept of the dignity of man which cannot be violated with impunity.” Compare that with the Bush administration’s original, Supreme Court-rebuked vision of justice – minimal rights for the accused, torture allowed, the government’s thumb on justice’s scale – and maybe you’ll agree: we need this


trial more than Mohammed does. For all its risks – and they are real – it offers a prize worth risking for: the promise of feeling like Americans again. That feeling is arguably the most significant casualty of Sept. 11. On that day, we elevated a mob of stateless criminals, a mafia in cleric’s clothing, to the exalted level of rogue nation. But they were never that, never a threat to our national existence, lacked the forces to take even one square inch of American soil. What they could threaten – and take – was our sense of ourselves as a brave, reasonable and civilized people, inhabiting a nation of laws. They beckoned us into the mud with them, and we leapt. It’s not the first time. Periodically, we have shed the burden of bravery, reason, civilization, laws. Always, it happens in moments of national stress, moments of overwhelming confusion, anger or fear, moments that make us prey to demons of expedience and moral compromise. Moments when we wonder if we can still afford to act like America. But we face a band of bloodthirsty hoodlums whose dearest wish is to make us just like them. So maybe the better question is this: Can we afford not to? LEONARD PITTS JR., winner of the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for commentary, is a columnist for the Miami Herald.

Iran begins war games



Death toll from China mine disaster hits 92 HEGANG, China – When gas levels suddenly spiked deep in the Xinxing coal mine, Wang Jiguo grabbed two coworkers and they ran for their lives. Minutes later, there was a huge bang, a torrent of hot air and the earth shuddered. Nearly two days later, at least 92 people are reported dead and 16 missing, the official Xinhua news agency said. AP

COPENHAGEN – Sixtyfive world leaders have said they will attend the Copenhagen climate summit in December, and several more have responded positively to invitations, officials said Sunday. But the world’s top three carbon polluters – the United States, China and India – have not indicated whether their leaders will attend the meeting.

Iran releases ex-VP on bail in mass trial TEHRAN, Iran – Iran released a former vice president on a $700,000 bail Sunday after his lawyer said he had been sentenced to six years in prison in the mass trial of opposition figures accused in post-election unrest. Mohammad Ali Abtahi, who served under former President Mohammad Khatami from 1997-2005, is the most senior former official among more than 100 people on trial since August.

Al-Maliki ramps up attacks on Baathists before vote BAGHDAD (AP) – A stepped-up campaign by Iraq’s prime minister against Saddam Hussein loyalists is alienating Sunni Muslims and stoking tensions between them and the majority Shiites ahead of key national elections. In its latest anti-Baathist attack, Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s Shiite-dominated government put three men on state television Sunday to confess their alleged role in planning suicide attacks in Baghdad last month. The three, all in detention and dressed in orange prison jumpsuits, said the bombings were ordered by Saddam’s Baath Party.

Al-Maliki’s intensified rhetoric worsens one of Iraq’s most dangerous sectarian fault lines – one which the United States has long struggled to calm. Al-Maliki Reconciliation between Sunnis and Shiites has been an elusive goal, seen as critical for Iraqi’s stability – and it takes on added urgency with American forces now scheduled to leave Iraq by the end of 2011. Many fear that without U.S. troops, sectarian and ethnic rifts could re-ignite into violence.

Report: Leaked documents detail Iraq war chaos LONDON (AP) – Leaked British government documents call into question ex-Prime Minister Tony Blair’s public statements on the buildup to the Iraq war and show that plans for the U.S.-led invasion in 2003 were being made


more than a year earlier, a newspaper reported on Sunday. Britain’s Sunday Telegraph published details of private statements made by senior British military figures claiming plans were in place months before the March

2003 invasion, but were so badly drafted they left troops poorly equipped and ill-prepared for the conflict.

Senate Democrats at odds over health care bill



Police ID gunman in Saipan rampage SAIPAN, Northern Mariana Islands â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The gunman who killed four people and wounded nine in a shooting rampage on the Pacific island of Saipan was identified Sunday as a Chinese national believed to be employed at the shooting range where the deaths occurred. Li Zhongren, 42, who killed himself after Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shooting spree, left several notes and authorities suspect the violence was linked to his personal finances and frustrations.

Studentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beating may be tied to Facebook CALABASAS, Calif. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Authorities say a 12year-old boy assaulted by a group of middle school classmates in Southern California may have been targeted after an Internet posting on Facebook urged students to beat up redheads. Los Angeles County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lt. Richard Erickson says the boy, who is redheaded, was kicked and hit in two incidents Friday at A.E. Wright Middle School in Calabasas. As many as 14 students participated in the attacks.

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Moderate Senate Democrats threatened Sunday to scuttle health-care legislation if demands arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t met, while more liberal members warned their party leaders not to bend. The dispute among Democrats foretells of a rowdy floor debate next

month on legislation that would extend health care coverage to roughly 31 million Americans. Republicans have already made clear they arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t supporting the bill. Final passage is in jeopardy, even after the chamberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s historic 60-39 vote Saturday night.

Roman Catholic Bishop Thomas Tobin speaks to a reporter in Riverside, R.I., Sunday.

R.I. bishop asked Kennedy in â&#x20AC;&#x2122;07 to avoid Communion EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A month of harsh words between Rep. Patrick Kennedy and a strident critic, Roman Catholic Bishop Thomas Tobin, escalated Sunday when the bishop acknowledged asking Kennedy in a February 2007 letter not to receive Holy Communion because of the Democratic lawmakerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s support for abortion rights. The bishopâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attempt to publicly shame Kennedy comes just a few

months after the death of his father, Sen. Edward Kennedy. Tobin told The Associated Press Sunday that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s praying for the younger Kennedy, who has been in and out of treatment for substance abuse, and said Kennedy has been acting â&#x20AC;&#x153;erratically.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;He attacked the church, he attacked the position of the church on health care, on abortion, on funding,â&#x20AC;? Tobin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And that required that I respond.â&#x20AC;?

Lawyer: 9-11 defendants want platform for views NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The five men facing trial in the Sept. 11 attacks will plead not guilty so that they can air their criticisms of U.S. foreign policy, the lawyer for one of the defendants said Sunday.

Scott Fenstermaker, the lawyer for accused terrorist Ali Abd al-Aziz Ali, said the men would not deny their role in the 2001 attacks but â&#x20AC;&#x153;would explain what happened and why they did it.â&#x20AC;? Ali, also known as

Ammar al-Baluchi, is a nephew of professed 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.

Primary wins to settle many contests





Candidates hit the campaign trail early. 1A BY PAUL B. JOHNSON ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

TRIAD – The official political calendar declares that voters will decide a host of races in North Carolina a year from now in the general election on Nov. 2, 2010. The political reality, though, is that many of those contests – for all intents and purposes – will be decided in the party primaries May 4. Many candidates will run in congressional, state legislative or county commissioner districts that are slanted toward the Republican or Democratic party, or in counties where Republicans or Democrats usually are assured of winning races. The importance of primaries in areas leaning toward one party or the other helps explain why so many candi-

‘A lot of districts are drawn in such a way that one party has a disproportionate advantage over another.’ Matthew DeSantis Assistant professor of political science dates have declared intentions to run for office this month, said Matthew DeSantis, assistant professor of political science at High Point University. “A lot of districts are drawn in such a way that one party has a disproportionate advantage over another. The primary battles, in those cases, are really the most important. If you live in a Republican area, the winner of the Republican primary, by default, is going to win the overall general election,” he said. Of the 170 seats in the N.C. General Assembly, political analysts estimate that twothirds are safe seats for one party or the other. Often the party in the distinct minority among voters in a district won’t field a candidate, or a candidate runs a minimal campaign. Since the primaries take place six months before the general election, candidates want to announce their bid for office now to gear up for the vote in May, DeSantis said. Candidates who will face a primary battle want to declare before this year’s holiday season to catch voters’ attention before it turns to family gatherings and vacations, he said. “You need to get set up now so that, as soon as it becomes 2010, you can hit the ground running,” DeSantis said. | 888-3528

John Lawrence Elementary principal earns top honors BY DARRICK IGNASIAK ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

ARCHDALE – Aaron Woody hasn’t let his success go to his head. In fact, the recently named Randolph County Schools Principal of the Year says the “enormous honor” wouldn’t be possible without help. “I’m very humbled by it,” said Woody, principal of John Lawrence Elementary School. “At the same time, I feel like it’s a school award because anything I’ve done is a result of the hard work the teachers, the students, the parents, the school community that they’ve actually done. We have been able to do so many things together. “I feel like it’s an opportunity to showcase our school – just not Aaron Woody.” In his 11th year working in education, Woody, 33, was named as the 2009-10 Wachovia Principal of the Year for Randolph County Schools last month. The program is sponsored by the North Carolina Department of


Residence: Greensboro Education: Received bachelor’s degrees in political science and secondary education from Liberty University in 1999; earned master’s degree in educational leadership from UNCG in 2004 and educational specialist degree in 2008; currently enrolled at UNCG to finish his doctorate. Family: Wife, Kelly; children, Kyla, 3, Kloe, 2.

Public Instruction, the Center for School Leadership Development and the Wachovia Corp. Under Woody’s leadership, John Lawrence was named a School of Distinction last year. Woody said 80 percent of the elementary school’s kids made ABC growth. “We’ve also done some really creative things as a community to

bring notoriety to the school,” he said. “Over the past three years, we’ve raised around $70,000 to institute SMART boards and to bring all of our technology up to the 21st century pace. We did that through the (Parent Teacher Association). That was a pretty awesome accomplishment.” Woody, who has been principal of John Lawrence for four years, started his education career with Guilford County Schools in 1999 at Jackson Middle School as a eighth-grade teacher. In 2002, he worked at Mendenhall Middle School as a seventh grade teacher before becoming assistant principal at Allen Jay Middle School for three years. While Woody has been busy educating others, he hasn’t quit his pursuit of furthering his own education. He is currently enrolled at UNCG where is working on getting his doctorate. “I want to be a lifelong learner,” he said. 888-3657


HIGH POINT – Guilford County Commissioner Bruce Davis wants an answer as soon a possible on High Point’s request to expand zoning territory to a growth corridor. Earlier this month, Mayor Becky Smothers called on the Guilford County Board of Commissioners for an answer. The short answer was simple: It may take weeks. Extraterritorial jurisdiction allows cities to control zoning in designated growth areas. A municipality may extend zoning control up to 1 mile beyond the city limits, according to state law. So far, a no formal ETJ application has appeared on a board agenda. “We have to act on this some day,” Davis, a High Point Demo-

crat, said Thursday after several residents of the mostly-rural Squire DaDavis vis Road area called on commissioners to ignore the request. “We have to discuss this. We should show folks on both sides that we are not brushing this under the rug.” County Manager Brenda Jones-Fox said her staff will be talking with High Point officials within the next few weeks. “This may be something for a retreat or a work session,” said board Chairman Skip Alston. The board usually holds retreats in January. City officials have a $14.9 million investment plan for water and sewer line extensions in growth areas northwest and southeast of the


Control: City leaders want to expand land-use regulations to growth areas near Kernersville and southeast near Jamestown. Growth areas usually include those receiving city water and/or sewer service, and neighborhoods from which requests for services could come. Costs: High Point City Manager Strib Boynton has said extraterritorial jurisdiction would benefit both the city and the county and save the county money.

city. The city is extending a sewer line north to Interstate 40, just east of Kernersville, an area identified as a growth area through annexation agreements.


With ETJ expansion, the city would control zoning, development, building codes and flood and erosion regulations in the growth area. Opponents fear if High Point is granted ETJ control, roads dividing their properties would follow and development would spoil the land. Jim Morgan of Colfax has complained that development would ruin farming. “High Point insists on expansion while rejecting revitalization within the city limits,” said resident Cathy Poole. “Mayor Smothers wants these new roads that would cross 17 water features so our property can be condemned for High Point development. Environmental degradation and taxpayer consent don’t seem to matter.” | 888-3626

Dear Burned Out: Your signature says it all. Have you heard the saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;If it ainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t broke, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fix itâ&#x20AC;?? You and Charlie have a wonderful relationship right now. You can enjoy him and help him out when he needs it, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still free to absent yourself when his girls become too much for you. Marriage is a package deal. If you combine households feeling the way you do, it would be unfair to yourself, to Charlie and all four of the children. I advise against it. P.S. If you havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t already mentioned to Charlie that both his daughters need to be under a doctorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s care, I urge you to do it.

Christmas trees are potential hazards


tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to believe that within the next couple of weeks Christmas trees start appearing in homes. Unfortunately, Christmas trees that are not properly cared for are extremely flammable and dangerous. This raises the question: Are Christmas trees too dangerous to have in our homes, even if they do provide good memories? The average number of fires from 2000 to 2004 in which Christmas trees were the first item ignited was about 300 per year. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a small number considering that approximately 33 million Christmas trees are sold each year in the United States. The scary part is the high number of Christmas tree fires that caused fatalities. On average, one in every 22 Christmas tree fires resulted in a death. The National Institute of Standards and Technology made a video to illustrate what happens when fire touches a dry tree. Within three seconds the tree was completely engulfed. In five seconds black smoke and hot gases were traveling across the ceiling. Furniture begins igniting even before there is flame contact. Within 40 seconds flashover occurs, engulfing the entire room in flames. You will not survive a flashover if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in the room. So how do you decrease the chance of fire and keep alive the tradition of a real Christmas

tree? The most important way is to water the tree. This same test FIREHOUSE was done on a tree CHAT that had plenty Lee of water. Knight Matches â&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  would not ignite the tree; a simulated electrical short that ignited a book of matches would not ignite the tree. Then a propane torch was used, which ignited the branches briefly, but the fire went out when the flame was removed. Remember: A wet tree is a safe tree. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also important to keep space heaters at a safe distance, to use lights approved by a testing laboratory and to keep open flames such as candles away from the tree. When the tree begins to dry out and lose needles, remove it from the house. Christmas trees are an important part of the holiday tradition. By following some simple precautions, you can have a safe and uneventful Christmas. Remember, use plenty of water. 24/7/365: You call; we respond.

No cure but many treatments for canker sores Dear Dr. Donohue: I’ve been bothered with canker sores of the mouth for almost a year. And I’m talking about having five or six at a time. Is there a cure? – N.N.


A cure? No. Treatments? Yes. Canker sores are painful, shallow ulcers that appear on the tongue or the lining of the mouth. They’re probably an autoimmune phenomenon. Something in the mouth triggers the immune system to assault it. One possible explanation is that a protein part of a bacterium that belongs to one species of the mouth’s normal bacterial population is the switch that turns on the immune system. Many researchers have looked and are still looking for a viral cause. The number of ulcers during an outbreak can be one or many. They have a gray center with a red, often slightly elevated margin. They last for a few days to as long as two weeks, and then they spontaneously heal. A few things help prevent them or help make them less painful. Go easy on acidic foods and drinks. Citrus fruits and tomatoes are examples. Use a toothbrush with soft bristles. Hard bristles can injure the tongue and set off an outbreak. The same thing goes for very crunchy foods, like toast and potato chips. Some people have identified sodium lauryl sulfate, an ingredient in many toothpastes, as the factor provoking an outbreak.















Check the ingredients of your toothpaste and switch to another if it has this material. HEALTH For an outbreak, Dr. Paul m o u t h Donohue washes like ■■■ Peridex and PerioGard lessen pain and hasten healing. Aphthasol, a paste applied to the sores, does the same. Put it on mouth areas that tingle before the sore appears. If you don’t have that kind of warning, then apply it to the sore. Kenalog in Orabase is another medicine applied directly to the canker. Rinsing the mouth with Benadryl liquid and then spitting it out soothes the sores. Or you can make a mouthwash solution of equal parts of Benadryl liquid, Milk of Magnesia and Kaopectate. This, too, is spit out after swishing it around. Dear Dr. Donohue: Two or three months ago, you stated that potassium brings down blood pressure. I mentioned that to my doctor, and he wanted to read about it for himself. Will you please supply that information? – N.H. Sure. One article is found in the New England Journal of Medicine, 356:19, May 10, 2007. The title is: Sodium and Potassium in the Pathogenesis of Hypertension. The authors are A.J. Adroque

and N.E. Madas. The library at your doctor’s hospital either will have bound copies of the journal or can send away for the article. The Institute of Medicine, a board of experts that develops recommendations for many nutrients, including minerals and vitamins, suggests that people get 4,700 mg of potassium a day. We are a people who take in too much sodium and an insufficient amount of potassium. Potassium blunts the blood-pressure-raising property of sodium (salt). Potassium also dilates arteries, something that lowers pressure. In people with high blood pressure, potassium can lower their reading by four points. Sweet potatoes, tomatoes, baked potatoes with their skin, figs, prunes, soy beans, lima beans, squash, spinach, peaches, cantaloupe, kidney beans, bananas, orange juice and almonds have a generous supply of potassium. You can meet your potassium goal through foods. Since I’m on this potassium kick, it also is reputed to decrease the risk of kidney stones and to guard muscles against the shrinkage caused by old age. DR. DONOHUE regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible. Readers may write him or request an order form of available health newsletters at P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475.

The Points of Light Youth Leadership Institute, which will be presented Friday and Saturday, is designed to develop skills that will help participants in their personal, academic and professional pursuits.

Points of Light Program looks to develop leadership skills in youths BY JIMMY TOMLIN ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER


IGH POINT – A national leadership program for high-school students will return to High Point this weekend. The Points of Light Youth Leadership Institute will be presented Friday and Saturday, providing up to 20 participants an opportunity to develop leadership skills that will benefit them in their personal, academic and professional pursuits. The program culminates with the completion of a community service project selected and implemented by the group. “A lot of times we see kids come into this program uncertain about what they want to accomplish,” says Di-Ann Williams of Purpose Plan 4 Life, a consulting firm that will facilitate the two-day program. “But during the process, we see them start to grow, and they



The Points of Light Youth Leadership Institute will be presented Friday and Saturday, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day, at the High Point Public Library, 901 N. Main St. Registration costs $25, which includes meals and snacks, training notebook, T-shirt, bandana and graduation ceremony. Space is limited to 20 participants. Register online at www.pur (click on “Program Request”) or call 431-3086. leave with an absolute clear vision of who they are, what their strengths are, how to work more cohesively in teams, and how to actually lead people. And invariably, they leave very much moved after completing their

community service project, because it has taken them outside their own peer group and outside of themselves, and they see that they can make a large difference in the lives of others.” The program is open to any local youths of high-school age. The cost of the program itself has been donated by an anonymous High Point family, so participants will be required to pay only the $25 registration fee. The Points of Light Youth Leadership Institute has been held in High Point twice before, and each time the participants grew as individuals and as members of their team. “Participants are involved in experiential learning activities, where they get hands-on training that they can apply to leadership development,” says Terry Aiken, also of Purpose Plan 4 Life. “For example, one lecture involves communication, and then we do an exercise centered on how they communicate in small groups.”

The community service projects performed by the two previous Points of Light groups included working with Open Door Ministries and refurbishing the playground at the YWCA of High Point. Purpose Plan 4 Life, based in High Point, was founded by Williams and Aiken with the vision of making a difference in local, national and world communities. They are national trainers for the Points of Light Youth Leadership Institute, based in Washington, D.C. The institute’s mission is “to provide youth with the encouragement, peer networks and leadership skills necessary for them to make meaningful contributions to their communities and begin a life-long journey of leadership and service,” according to its Web site.

Reading Connections moving to library ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT


IGH POINT – The High Point Public Library will soon be welcoming a new tenant – Reading Connections. The adult literacy agency will relocate from its office space at the Employment Security Commission to the newly renovated library in December, creating a partnership between two organizations dedicated to promoting literacy to benefit the residents of greater High Point. Reading Connections will occupy 750 square feet of previously undedicated space on the second floor of the library. Contingent on securing suffi-

cient funding, this space will be retrofitted to include additional tutoring rooms, a tutor library, and literacy staff offices. In addition, the Reading Connections staff will have access to computer labs for computerbased instruction and meeting rooms for individual and classroom instruction. In return, the library will gain an important means to achieve its mission to reach all adults who want to learn to read. “Revitalizing the library’s adult literacy program has been a priority for me,” says Kem Ellis, director of the public library. “When we heard that Reading Connections was in need of a new home, we saw the perfect

opportunity to partner more closely with Reading Connections and bring their literacy program to our clients. It’s really the perfect win-win situation.” The library is in the final stages of a $6 million renovation to be completed in early 2010. The retrofit of Reading Connections offices is not funded as part of this renovation, and community financial support is being sought to support this recent partnership, according to Reading Connections officials. It is estimated that $60,000 will be needed to complete construction plans. Reading Connections was founded in 1990 in Greensboro


and opened a High Point office in 2005. Since then, the agency has served 502 adult students and 173 volunteer tutors in the greater High Point area. “The library sees 7,500 visitors every week,” says Jenny Gore, executive director of Reading Connections. “If even a fraction of them take advantage of our services, we will be reaching a tremendous number of adults and their families.” To contribute to the partnership, send tax-deductible donations to the Friends of the High Point Public Library, P.O. Box 2530, High Point, NC 27261, or to Reading Connections, 122 N. Elm St., Suite 520, Greensboro, NC 27401.

Guilford County Department of Social Services Division of Aging and Adult Services, the Joy A. Shabazz Center for Independent Living and Senior Resources of Guilford have implemented a collaborative partnership designed to streamline access to long-term services and supports for area citizens that are aging or living with disabilities. The partnership, which took effect Nov. 16, is called Piedmont Triad Community Resource Connections for Aging and Disabilities. It is a network of providers which allow consumers to have access to comprehensive information about and obtain assistance with accessing the complete range of options for long-term services and supports in North Carolina. Those include help with determining which Medicare Part D plan best fits a consumer’s needs; how to apply for public benefits; and how to access communitybased services, such as Mobile Meals, long-term futures planning, and possible employment options. The goal of the project is to develop these formal linkages between local service providers and older adults and their caregivers, as well as adults with disabilities. Agencies collaborating through the partnership will be able to share appropriate information about clients in order to facilitate the consumers’ access to programs or services. This means individuals will not have to tell and re-tell their story or give information multiple times in order to obtain services. For more information, contact Sabrena Lea at (919) 8554457 or nc.crc@, or Lorrie Z. Roth at (336) 6414680 or lroth@










Cy the Cynic says that if at first you don’t succeed, look in the trash for the instructions. It was too late for that after today’s deal. At 3NT, South put up dummy’s queen on the first spade, but East’s king covered. South held off and won the third spade, discarding a diamond from dummy. He cashed his top clubs but didn’t succeed in finding a 3-3 break that would have given him nine sure tricks: West pitched a diamond. “If at first you don’t succeed ...” South mumbled, and he next led a heart to the ace and returned the queen of diamonds. West produced the king and took two spades for down one.

DAILY QUESTION You hold: S A 6 4 H K Q 6 2 D A 5 4 C A K Q. The dealer, at your right, opens one diamond. You double, and your partner bids one heart. What do you say?

NINTH TRICK South needed better instructions. After the clubs fail to break evenly, South must test the hearts by taking the king, queen and ace. When both defenders follow, South can lead a diamond to his ace and cash the good heart for his ninth trick. If the hearts didn’t break, South could try, try again. The lead would be in dummy, and he could finesse in diamonds.

ANSWER: Although you have 22 good highcard points, your distribution is sterile, and your hand contains several losers. If your partner has poor hearts and no values, as is possible, you can’t make a game. Raise to three hearts. If he has a trick – give him 5 3, A 9 7 5, 8 3 2, 6 5 3 2 – he should go on. South dealer N-S vulnerable

‘New Moon’ wolfs down $140.7M in opening weekend LOS ANGELES (AP) – The vampire romance “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” sucked up $140.7 million in its first three days and pulled in a total of $258.8 million worldwide, according to studio estimates Sunday. The No. 1 domestic debut for Summit Entertainment’s “New Moon”

was more than twice the $69.6 million haul over the same weekend last year for “Twilight,” the first in the franchise based on Stephenie Meyer’s novels. The movie adaptation of Meyer’s next “Twilight” chapter, “Eclipse,” arrives in the heart of summer, next June 30.

Monday, Nov. 23, 2009 CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Austin Majors, 14; Salli Richardson, 42; Maxwell Caulfield, 50; Bruce Hornsby, 55 HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Take every chance you get to experience something new. Change is upon you and your acceptance of what’s to come and willingness to go along for the ride will determine your success. An open attitude will spare you negative reactions. Follow through with your promises. Your numbers are 2, 11, 16, 19, 22, 36, 48 ARIES (March 21-April 19): You don’t need to depend on others in order to get things done or to get what you want. Getting someone else involved will hold you back. Don’t give to an unworthy cause because you are tired of listening to complaints. ★★★★ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don’t let generosity be your downfall. Giving too much will set you back to an uncomfortable financial level. If you are too forgiving or emotionally sensitive, you will be taken for granted. ★★ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You can make things happen and get the backing you need if you do your fair share but you’ll be disappointed if you expect the work will get done magically. Bend over backwards to accomplish. You will get the returns you want. ★★★★★ CANCER (June 21-July 22): You need to relax and learn how to have fun. Giving too much, too fast to a new friend may cost you emotionally and financially. Deception is apparent, so question anyone talking big or promising the impossible. ★★★ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don’t assume anything, especially if it has to do with friends, family or money. Obsessing over the little things will cause poor health. Problems with your home or a move can be resolved as long as you are thoughtful of others. ★★★ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You have to broaden your outlook before judging someone who is confused. Listening to other people’s problems will make you see your own troubles in a different light. An opportunity at work may not be all it’s being cracked up to be. ★★★ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You must let others know how you feel. Being open will help you obtain the freedom you require to live life your way. An original plan will allow you to fulfill a dream you’ve been thinking of for some time. ★★★★★ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Take one step at a time, especially if you are dealing with someone who is jealous or doesn’t want to share you or give you space to do your own thing. Include the people you love and you will avoid problems late in the day. ★★ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): This is not the time to take chances. Choose your words wisely and take action defensively. Be complimentary and describe the way you see things unfolding so that everyone is included. Give others leeway to do as they please. ★★★★ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Demands will not get you any closer to what you want, so back off and rethink your strategy. If you don’t like the way things are developing, take a pass. Sometimes going it alone is a better alternative. ★★★ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Your confusion will lead you astray. Don’t try to fix something without first understanding what’s wrong. Emotional matters will affect what you do and say, causing problems with someone you care for. ★★★ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t try to fool anyone if you don’t know what you are doing – someone will point it out fast, making you look bad. No one will conform to what you want unless you are on top of matters. Put everything in order before you let others get involved. ★★★ 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.

Go fourth, Jimmie Johnson savors historic title run HOMESTEAD, Fla. (AP) – All Jimmie Johnson ever wanted was a chance to race with the best in NASCAR. Maybe even win a race or two. Never did he expect to be a champion. Especially four times over. Johnson bulldozed his way into the record books by becoming the first driver in NASCAR history to win four consecutive championships, finishing fifth in Sunday’s season-finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway. He joins Richard Petty (7), Dale Earnhardt (7) and teammate Jeff Gordon (4) as the only drivers to win more than three titles. “To do something that’s never been done in the sport, and love the sport like I do and respect it like I do and the greats – Petty, Earnhardt, Gordon – to do something they have never done is so awesome,” Johnson said. “And to win four championships in eight years, what this team has done – this is unbelievable.” Yes, it is. Johnson now stands atop NASCAR as a one-man dynasty, much like Tiger Woods, Roger Federer and Lance Armstrong in their sports. Only Johnson hasn’t been feted under a blizzard of confetti by himself. His mighty Hendrick Motorsports team rules NASCAR the way UCLA once dominated the hardwood or Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls reigned supreme. Johnson’s title gave a record 12th overall championship to team owner Rick Hendrick, who was in North Carolina with a niece who’s awaiting an emergency liver transplant. In his absence, the team took the top three spots in the final standings. Mark Martin wound up with his fifth runner-up finish in the standings, while Gordon was third. “I feel really, really blessed to have had a chance,” Martin said. There’s seemingly plenty of chances left for Johnson’s tag-team with crew chief Chad Knaus to keep the No. 48 in the

Jimmie Johnson celebrates after winning his fourth consecutive NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season title with a fifth-place finish at Homestead-Miami Speedway in Homestead, Fla. on Sunday.



Martin settles for second again. 3D title hunt for another decade. The 34-year-old Californian on Friday signed a five-year contract extension to drive for Hendrick through 2015, and Knaus has insisted the No. 48 team can keep this pace for the next several years. “He’s not done yet,” teammate Martin said.

Johnson never let up in pursuit of the championship, even though he needed only to finish 25th or better to get it Sunday. But he pushed for all 400 miles and even threatened to try to run down the leaders to better his eventual fifthplace finish. “History, boys!” he shouted as he crossed the finish line. “How about some history!” Upon leaving his car in Victory Lane, Johnson first thanked the fans, tears sparkling in his eyes. Nobody gave Johnson anything,

either. The other drivers raced hard around him all day, making Johnson earn every point in a race won by Denny Hamlin, who established himself as a driver to watch in 2010 by winning a career-high four races this season. Hamlin also managed to keep pace with Johnson at times but fell out of contention with three DNFs. Johnson and Knaus won seven races this season and, as usual, turned it up a notch when the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship began.

Cowboys squeak past Redskins ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) – Before and after every snap, Tony Romo felt the throbbing in his back, the result of an accidental blow suffered while making a first-quarter tackle, of all things. While he could block out the pain during most plays, he couldn’t stop it from affecting his throws – at least, not until the game was on the line. Given a break by a missed field goal, Romo scrambled for a first down, then completed seven straight

passes, the last a 10-yarder to Patrick Crayton for a touchdown with 2:41 left that gave the Dallas Cowboys a 7-6 victory over the Washington Redskins on Sunday and preserved their spot atop the NFC East. “I’ve always felt like, no matter what is really wrong – as long as it’s not a broken bone or something that’s going to keep you out – just on the adrenalin of the game, you can always do it,” Romo said. This was the second straight

week the Cowboys (7-3) didn’t score until the final minutes. Doing it on the road against the desperate Green Bay Packers was one thing; this time, it would’ve been humiliating considering they were at home and the Redskins (3-7) were down to third-stringers at running back and right guard and came in without their expensive defensive tackle and star tight end. Washington overcame it all to lead 6-0 on field goals of 45 and

31 yards from Shaun Suisham. He missed a 39-yarder just before halftime, then a 50-yarder that would’ve made it 9-0 right before what proved to be Dallas’ winning drive. Those were Suisham’s first two misses of the season. Washington RB Clinton Portis (concussion) has been ruled out next week and backup Ladell Betts is having an MRI to determine the extent of the ligament damage in his left knee.





hree games under new coach Scott Cherry, High Point University’s men’s basketball team gives indications that it can be a factor in the Big South Conference this season. In two games, the Panthers blew out overmatched lower division opponents as they should. In the other, they gave a respectable showing against Wake Forest, leading most of the first half before the Deacons thoroughly dominated the second half. The 83-60 loss to the Deacons is so far the best showing for a Big South team against an ACC foe. On the way to a 100-74 romp against Divi-

sion III school Hampden Syndey College on Saturday, the Panthers learned that they don’t have much margin for error. The Panthers didn’t play with a lot of fire once emotional leader Corey Law went to the bench with two fouls. They weren’t sharp defensively as the similarly-sized Bears made wide-open 3s from the wings and cut and drove to the basket as they whittled a 15point lead to seven at intermission and four in the first 90 seconds of the second half. “Our guys realized we weren’t bringing the intensity and the level of play that we needed in the first half on the defensive end of the floor,” Cherry said. “We were allowing them to

run their offense and get easy catches and good looks at the basket and when they missed, we weren’t outhustling them and we weren’t outplaying them. They were getting loose balls. They were getting offensive rebounds. We came out much better focused in the second half and produced the result we want.” Cherry has recharged HPU’s players who returned from last year’s disappointing season. They believe they can win the Big South championship this season. But they can’t afford to play with anything less than their best effort.



Charlie Weis wouldn’t blame Notre Dame for firing him. “If they decide to make a change, I’d have to say I’d have a tough time arguing with that. If they decide to make a change, I’d have a tough time arguing that because 6-5 is not good enough,” the Irish coach said Sunday.

Martin settles for second again HOMESTEAD, Fla. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Mark Martin thought for a second. Laughed. Then laughed again. Finishing second in the yearlong battle for the NASCAR championship, there was a time that easily could have crushed his emotions, left him angry and frustrated. Not this time. At 50, his perspective has changed. Martin accepted NASCARâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s silver medal for the fifth time Sunday night, unable in the season-ending Ford 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway to derail Jimmie Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s march toward stock-car immortality. Johnson became the first driver to win four straight NASCAR titles â&#x20AC;&#x201C; while Martin joined Richard

Petty and Bobby Allison as the only drivers to finish No. 2 in the points standings five times. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no frustration, man,â&#x20AC;? said Martin, a half-hour after championship confetti again filled the air in someone elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s honor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d love it. I know youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d love it. I know all yâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;all would love it. But thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no frustration. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s none. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very proud of what we accomplished.â&#x20AC;? Martin finished this season 141 points behind Johnson, a gap 33 points larger than it was when the race began. Jeff Gordon was third, another 38 points back, but giving Hendrick Motorsports a historic 12-3 finish in the standings. And soon after the checkered flag fell, Martin

was among the first people to offer a congratulatory handshake to Johnson and the No. 48 carâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crew chief, Chad Knaus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was such an incredible achievement to have a chance,â&#x20AC;? said Martin, also NASCARâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s runner-up in 1990, 1994, 1998 and 2002. Petty was NASCARâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s runner-up six times; of course, he also won the title seven times. Allisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lone NASCAR title came in 1983 to go along with his five runner-up showings, and Martin sharing another link with him comes tinged with some irony. Allison was the one who made the recommendation to Jack Roush to give Martin a ride more than 20 years ago.

Montoya, Stewart add spark to finale HOMESTEAD, Fla. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Juan Pablo Montoya and Tony Stewart could have used a referee. The final two races of the NASCAR season were more like a throwback to the good olâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; boys who settled their feuds on the track. Montoya and Stewart must have paid attention to the Nationwide Series race a night earlier when Brad Keselowski and Denny Hamlin added another explosive edition to their long-running conflict. Montoya and Stewart became tangled in separate blatant acts of retaliation in the Sprint Cup finale Sunday at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Stewart temporarily sent Montoya to the garage; NASCAR kept Montoya parked on pit road. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a type of fiery attitude fans feel NASCAR could use to inject

Westwood wins Dubai, money titles ENTERPRISE STAFF, WIRE REPORTS

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Lee Westwood of England became Europeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s No. 1 golfer on Sunday after winning the Dubai World Championship by six strokes. Westwood shot a course-record 8-under 64 in the final round at the Earth Course to finish at 23-under 265. He earned $1.25 million with the 31st victory of his career to overtake Rory McIlroy on the season-long money list and win the European Tourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first Race to Dubai since it changed from the European Order of Merit. Ross McGowan of England was second after a 68, and McIlroy shot 67 to finish third at 273.

MCPHERSON LEADS LPGA TOUR CHAMPIONSHIP RICHMOND, Texas â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Kristy McPherson finished off a 5-under 67 in fading sunlight Sunday to take a one-stroke lead in the LPGA Tour Championship before the second round was suspended because of darkness. McPherson was 8 under, one shot ahead of Jiyai Shin.

COLONIAL COUNTRY CLUB TURKEY TOURNEY THOMASVILLE â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Greta Stookey, Richard Sanders, Candy McMahan, Dirk Swing and Barbara Hinshaw teamed to win Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Turkey Tournament at Colonial Country Club. Scott Nelson, Ronnie Blair, Lanny Hampton. Charlie Mikels and Jane Campbell took second.

some life into a series where crowning Jimmie Johnson the champion has become a staid formality. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m glad I was an inspiration,â&#x20AC;? Hamlin said after he won the race. Hamlin-Keselowski and MontoyaStewart were an unexpected heavyweight double-bill caused by frayed nerves and a â&#x20AC;&#x153;nothing to loseâ&#x20AC;? mentality with the season down to the final laps. Keselowski and Hamlinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ontrack issues deteriorated into a war of words. Montoya and Stewart skipped out without talking to the media. The trouble started Sunday when Montoya tagged Stewart from behind on lap 117, something the twotime Cup champ wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let slide. Stewart got his payback when he sideswiped the No. 42, slicing the right front tire of Montoyaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chev-

rolet and sending the car into the wall. Montoya was forced into the garage to have the car repaired. Perhaps thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when Montoya, who enjoyed the best season of his three-year Cup career, plotted revenge. Montoya returned to the track on lap 145 and quickly had another run-in with Stewart. NASCAR warned both drivers, â&#x20AC;&#x153;enough is enough and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s over.â&#x20AC;? Not so fast. Montoya used his bumper to send Stewart sliding into the grass along the frontstretch. That was all NASCAR officials had to see, as they immediately black-flagged Montoya for two laps. The race finished without another road-rage incident between the two. Stewart finished 22nd and Montoya was 38th.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Tracy Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s three-point play in the final minute enabled N.C.

Ole Miss, Cal, UNC back in AP Top 25 THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Mississippi, California and North Carolina, teams that started the season with lofty expectations before stumbling, have surged back into the AP Top 25 college football poll. There was little change, however, at the top of The Associated Press rankings Sunday after a weekend when most of the highly ranked teams had easy victories or time off. No. 1 Florida was followed by fellow unbeatens Alabama, Texas, TCU, Cincinnati and Boise State. Also holding their places were No. 7 Georgia Tech, No. 8 Pittsburgh and No. 9 Ohio State. The Gators received 36 first-place votes, Alabama had 13 and Texas 11. The only change in the top 10 came at No. 10. Oregon moved up a spot after LSU slipped seven places to No. 17 after losing 25-23 at Ole Miss. The Rebels (8-3) started the season ranked in the top 10, touted as a threat to Alabama in the Southeastern Conferenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s West Division. Ole Miss reached as high as No. 4 in September before stumbling all the way out of the rankings with three losses. But the Rebels extended their winning streak to three games by edging LSU in a wild finish and they moved back into the media rankings at No. 20. Cal was also a top-10 team in September, considered a Pac-10 title contender. Consecutive blowout losses to Oregon and Southern California sent the Golden Bears tumbling, but they have won five of six since, including Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 34-28 victory at archrival Stanford. Cal was No. 21 in the latest poll. North Carolina was expected to challenge Virginia Tech in the ACCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Coastal Division and was ranked in the first four polls this season. The Tar Heels reached as high as No. 19, but they lost their first three ACC games and fell out of the rankings. North Carolina moved back into the Top 25 at No. 23 after winning its fourth straight game, 31-13 at Boston College. UNCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reappearance in the poll gives the ACC five ranked team, the most of any conference. Dropping out of the rankings after losses this week were Stanford, Wisconsin and Rutgers. Oklahoma State was No. 11, followed by Penn State, Iowa, Virginia Tech and Clemson. Oregon State moved up four spot to No. 16. The Beavers and Ducks meet in the Civil War rivalry on Thursday, Dec. 3, to decide the Pac-10 title and Rose Bowl berth. The last time Oregon and Oregon State played with such high rankings was 2000, when the No. 5 Ducks lost to No. 8 Oregon State. No. 17 LSU, along with BYU, Miami and Ole Miss round out the top 20. Joining Cal and North Carolina in the last five are No. 22 Utah, No. 24 Southern Cal and No. 25 Houston.

FLORIDA TOPS BCS STANDINGS NEW YORK â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Iowa and Penn State ended their seasons eligible for an at-large BCS bid, and Oklahoma State and Virginia Tech are also in position to be eligible for invites to the four big-money bowl games even though they have no shot to win their conferences. The top seven teams in the Bowl Championship Series standings released Sunday were unchanged from last week, with Florida, Alabama and Texas still in control of the national championship race. Barring any major upsets, the winner of the FloridaAlabama SEC title game will face Texas in the BCS title game on Jan. 7 at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif.

Colts, Saints stay unbeaten THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

BALTIMORE â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The undefeated Indianapolis Colts found yet another way to win a close game, their 19th straight victory. The 17-15 win secured on former Ravens kicker Matt Stoverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s go-ahead field goal gave Indianapolis (10-0), the second-longest streak in NFL history behind a 21game run by the New England Patriots (2006-08). Indy received an inspired performance from the defense and overcame an uncharacteristic three turnovers. Much to the dismay of the Ravens and their fans, Stover booted the decisive field goal with 7:02 left. Colts linebacker Gary Brackett then intercepted Joe Flaccoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pass at the Indianapolis 13 with 2:42 remaining, and the Colts kept the ball until the closing seconds. Baltimoreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last gasp ended when Ed Reed fumbled on a punt return with 17 seconds left.

SAINTS 38, BUCCANEERS 7 TAMPA, Fla. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Drew Brees threw for three touchdowns and the Saints shrugged off a slow start defensively to remain unbeaten. Robert Meacham caught touchdown passes of 4 and 6 yards in the first half. Third-string running back Mike Bell scored on runs of 3 and 1 yards in the second half, when New Orleans gained 147 of its 183 yards rushing. The Saints (10-0) have their first 10-game winning streak in franchise history. Tampa Bay (1-9) drove 95 yards for a touchdown on its first possession.

yard tying touchdown pass to Louis Murphy with 33 seconds left and Sebastian Janikowski kicked a 33yard field goal after Andre Caldwell fumbled the ensuing kickoff. The Bengals (7-3) have lost all 10 games in Oakland, including one playoff game. Oakland (3-7) rallied from an early 14-point deficit and trailed 17-10 with 2:06 left.

PATRIOTS 31, JETS 14 FOXBOROUGH, Mass. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The defense Bill Belichick didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to put on the field a week ago kept the offense of the Jets off it. Leigh Bodden had three of the four interceptions thrown by Mark Sanchez and the Patriotsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; defense allowed just one touchdown and 226 yards. The victory gave them a two-game lead in the AFC East and sent the Jets (4-6) to their sixth loss in seven games. Tom Brady completed 28 of 41 passes for 310 yards, his fifth straight game with more than 300. Wes Welker set career highs with 15 receptions for 192 yards for the Pats (7-3).

VIKINGS 35, SEAHAWKS 9 MINNEAPOLIS â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Brett Favre completed a career-high 88 percent of his passes for 213 yards and four touchdown passes and the Vikings delivered their most complete performance of the season. Favre completed 22 of his 25 throws for the Vikings (9-1). His previous career high was 85.2 percent against Detroit on Sept. 20.


KANSAS CITY, Mo. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Ryan Succop kicked a 22-yard field goal with 8:28 left in overtime after Chris Chambersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 61-yard catch-and-run, and the Chiefs snapped a team-record 10-game home losing streak. The Super Bowl champs, with Charlie Batch replacing a shaken-up Ben Roethlisberger in overtime, had to punt on their first possession. Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said Roethlisbergerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s injury was a â&#x20AC;&#x153;concussion-oriented thing.â&#x20AC;? It was the second loss in a row for the Steelers (6-4), The Steelers had the ball for almost 19 minutes longer than the Chiefs (3-7) and outgained them 463-206.

DETROIT â&#x20AC;&#x201C; An ailing Matthew Stafford threw his fifth touchdown pass from 1 yard to Brandon Pettigrew, and Jason Hansonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s extra point with no time on the clock gave Detroit a thrilling win. Detroit was given the untimed play because safety Hank Poteat was called for pass interference in the end zone when Stafford heaved a desperation attempt. Stafford was hit after his throw to the end zone and appeared to hurt his left shoulder or chest area. He was replaced by Daunte Culpepper. The Browns, though, gave Stafford a chance to get back in the game by calling a timeout with the ball at the 1-yard line. Stafford returned and connected with fellow rookie Pettigrew to snap Detroitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s six-game losing streak.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Philip Rivers and a dominant defense led the Chargers into sole possession of first place, drubbing the Broncos, who couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t move the ball effectively behind either of their quarterbacks. The Chargers (7-3) have won five straight and the Broncos (6-4) have dropped four in a row, turning the division race upside-down. Just five weeks ago, the Chargers trailed the Broncos by 31â &#x201E;2 games.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Eli Manning and the offense bailed out the Giantsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; top-ranked defense. Lawrence Tynes kicked a 36-yard field goal 3:54 into overtime to make up for an earlier miss after the defense blew a two-touchdown lead in the fourth quarter. Manning threw for a career-high 384 yards and three touchdown passes, including two to Kevin Boss and a 3-yarder to former Ledford star Madison Hedgecock.

GREEN BAY, Wis. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Aaron Rodgers made San Francisco pay for a draft-day snub in 2005. Rodgers threw touchdowns to Greg Jennings and Jordy Nelson, and Ryan Grant rushed for 129 yards and a score.

GREAT EXPECTATIONS: See how the shopping season kicks off. THIS WEEK

Dell takes $59 million hit to close plant Brian Gladden, Dellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chief financial officer, said during a conference call with analysts Thursday that the charge â&#x20AC;&#x153;represents the majority of the WinstonSalem exposure expense.â&#x20AC;? David Frink, a Dell spokesman, said Friday the company wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t provide further financial detail regarding the plant


Dell Inc. will spend about half the cost of building its $110 million local plant to close it. The company said it took a $59 million noncash charge in the third quarter of its fiscal year 2010, which ended Oct. 30.

closing, such as how much it is paying in severance and other benefits to employees. Dell said on Oct. 7 that it was closing the plant and eliminating 905 jobs by midJanuary. It cut more than 400 jobs Wednesday, 200 below its initial projection for the first work-force reduction. The $59 million charge

was included in what Dell called $123 million in â&#x20AC;&#x153;organizational effectiveness expenses.â&#x20AC;? The same amount is listed as severance and facilities actions in other financial data. The $123 million expense represented a 5-cent, aftertax charge to earnings. Gladden said that the majority of the $123 million ex-

pense was related to cost of goods sold in the quarter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The biggest item driving this expense was the closure of the Winston-Salem manufacturing facility,â&#x20AC;? Frink said. As employeesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; jobs are cut, they will receive two months of pay, an additional week of pay for every year they worked at

Rising unemployment taxes businesses WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; As if small businesses needed another reason not to hire, consider their latest financial burden: The cost of rising unemployment itself. Employers already are squeezed by tight credit, rising health care costs, wary consumers and a higher minimum wage. Now, the surging jobless rate is imposing another cost. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s forcing higher state taxes on companies to pay for unemployment insurance claims. Some employers say the extra costs make them less likely to hire. That could be a worrisome sign for the economic recovery, because small businesses create about 60 percent of new jobs. â&#x20AC;˘ Chuck Ferrar, who owns a liquor store in Annapolis, Md., expects to pay $9,000 in unemployment taxes next year, up from $3,000 this year. Health care costs for his employees will rise by $8,000, or 17.5 percent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you start adding this up, it turns into real money,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I lose an employee through attrition, I will not replace him. You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford to do it.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;˘ Sam Schlosser, owner of Plymouth Foundry Inc. in Plymouth, Ind., said his unemployment tax bill could

Revenue at the family-owned company, which makes iron castings for machine parts, has fallen about 50 percent, he said. In case of higher taxes, his company may have to consider layoffs, he said. â&#x20AC;˘ Marjorie Feldman-Wood, president of Alâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Beverages in East Windsor, Conn., which makes soda fountain syrup, said higher taxes would make

pay raises less likely. Connecticut is borrowing from the federal government, and employers fear the state will have to raise taxes soon to repay the loan. Bruce Meyer, a University of Chicago economics professor, said his studies show that higher unemployment taxes usually lead to lower pay for employees. Behind the trend are wide-

spread layoffs. The number of people claiming jobless aid has tripled since the recession began, and the demand has drained the funds that many states use to pay jobless claims. Most of the tax increases are being triggered by laws requiring higher taxes to make up for a decline in state funds to pay for benefits. In some cases, cuts in jobless aid are required, too.

the plant, two months of COBRA health-insurance coverage, a bonus for fiscal year 2010 goals that were met at the plant, and two months of outplacement services help. Frink said the repayment of $26.5 million in local incentives was not included in the $59 million charge.

Fed under fire as public anger mounts WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Suddenly the Federal Reserve is everybodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s punching bag. Strip the Fed of its bank regulation powers, some in Congress are demanding. Get probing audits of its behind-the-scenes operations, others say. The chairman of the Federal Reserve Board is always fair game for criticism and secondguessing, usually over interest rate actions, but this year the criticism is much broader as Congress responds to widespread public anger that the Fed bailed out Wall Street but not ordinary Americans. Former Fed Chairman William McChesney Martin Jr. famously said that the central bankâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s job was to yank away the punchbowl just when everybody is starting to party. Now, the Fed finds itself both the punchbowl keeper and the punching bag. Imagine the outcry when it does begin to crank up rates. Senate Banking Committee Chairman Chris Dodd, D-Conn., has proposed legislation that would strip the Fed of its bank-regulation authority and give the Senate a role in selecting the 12 regional Federal Reserve bank presidents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think it ever hurts to have a member of Congress stand up and denounce the Fed. There is a lot of anger out there, and this is basically a therapeutic gesture,â&#x20AC;? said Ross Baker, a political scientist at Rutgers University. Still, Baker said, it probably isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wise to tamper with the formula that makes the Fed â&#x20AC;&#x153;very much an anomaly in American government. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s independent, it has to be.â&#x20AC;?

Investors hope holiday data offer clear picture of future NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Investors are heading toward the final month of the year with more questions about the economy than they had just a few weeks ago. The uncertainty, which follows some downbeat reports on housing and employment, will likely mean choppy trading, especially as volume dwindles during the holiday season. In this week, which will be abbreviated due to Thanksgiving, investors will look to reports on home sales, unemployment and consumer confidence and the start of the holiday shopping season on Friday for more insight into the direction of the economy. The government also will revise its early estimate of the gross domestic product that said the econ-

omy grew at an annual pace of 3.5 percent during the third quarter. Many analysts now expect a smaller increase in GDP because of recent reports on housing and retail sales. If more reports signal a slow economic rebound, investors could continue selling stocks and buying safe-haven assets like the dollar and short-term Treasurys, as they did last week. Stocks fell from 13-month highs during the latter half of last week on disappointing housing reports and worries about a slump in demand at technology companies. The Dow Jones industrials ended the week with a paltry 0.5 percent gain, while broader indexes finished with losses. And the threemonth Treasury billâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s yield briefly

turned negative, which meant that investors were willing to in effect pay the government to park their cash in a safe place. Investors have again become more cautious about risk after months of taking advantage of record low interest rates to borrow cheaply and pump money into stocks and commodities. Uneven reports showing small improvements in some industries like manufacturing but still weak numbers in areas like employment and housing have investors worried that the recovery will be slow and subdued. Not wanting to risk losing the big gains theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve amassed since March, investors are locking in profits and padding their portfolios with more safe havens.

Report: Cadbury wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bite on Hershey offer


LONDON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; British candy company Cadbury PLC will reject an expected 10.3 billion pound ($17 billion) takeover bid from U.S. confectionary giant Hershey Co., a newspaper reported Sunday. Britainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sunday Times

cited an unnamed industry source as saying Cadbury is reluctant to do a deal unless Hershey raises its valuation of the company. The Wall Street Journal reported Friday that Hershey Co. is preparing a bid, but that it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be ready

for around two weeks. It said the offer is expected to include at least $10 billion in cash from Hershey, plus $2 billion in new Hershey shares and another $3 billion to $5 billion in cash from investors in exchange for equity in Hershey.

homogenous are actually quite complex,” said Robert S. Carney, an oceanographer at Louisiana State University. Thousands of marine species eke out an existence in the ocean’s pitchblack depths by feeding on the snowlike decaying matter that cascades down – even sunken whale bones. Oil and methane also are an energy source, the report said. The researchers have found about 5,600 new species on top of the 230,000 known.
