Participants satisfied as Showtime wraps up BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – Showtime’s 40th edition ends today with mixed feelings from exhibitors at the fabric and textile event. Economic factors including high fuel costs and stock market conditions weren’t as gruesome for the event as they have been during recent shows. Some exhibitors said they continued to see effects from those factors while others reported an uptick in business. “Traffic has become lighter and lighter through the years,” said Rita Winston of E-Tex LA, a Los Angeles-based fabric company. “It’s slow this time, but business has been better for us from last season.” Held each June and December, Showtime is organized by the International Textile Market Association and held in Market Square. The event caters to all sectors of the fabric industry, but most of its business comes from the home furnishings sector. Jane Matteson, a trend consultant in the textile industry who made several presentations at the show, said traffic seemed lighter, but many companies were holding appointments with clients earlier in the event. She said she saw the heaviest traffic on Monday. “It’s still important for anyone in the industry to be here. It’s where the energy is,” she said. “You have to be engaged in the process here to do well outside.” The event, which opened Sunday, was estimated by the High Point Convention and Visitor’s Bureau to bring about 3,000 people to the city with an economic impact of about $1.3 million, slightly down from last year’s projections. Dave Cavan, a national sales representative with Libas Limited Ltd., said traffic appeared the same compared to the last two shows. He said that’s a good sign. “Traffic has been average and surprisingly OK,” he said. “I’m pleasantly surprised. The economy is still bad and business is not good, but we’re optimistic here.” Organizers said the event ran smoothly. “Everybody is so happy,” said Catherine Morsell, director of ITMA. “The whole, overall atmosphere is very positive, and we are pleased with buyer attendance. We’ve had a lot of new attendees and some people walking the floor to see if they want to exhibit next year.” Showtime will celebrate its 20th year in operation at its next show June 6-9. phaynes@hpe.com | 888-3617

Lake should open to recreation March 1 Rain likely High 64, Low 35

BY PAUL B. JOHNSON ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

GREENSBORO – People who for years have looked forward to the chance to enjoy an outing on Randleman Lake have less than three months to wait for the opportunity to arrive. The Piedmont Triad Regional Water Authority remains on schedule to open the 3,000-acre lake to fishing and boating on March 1. At their monthly meeting Tuesday, authority board members said they intend to adopt final policies on recreational use of the lake at their next meeting Jan. 12 at the authority office in Greensboro. The authority already has codified lake regulations, which are posted on its Web site, www.ptrwa. org. Board members still are ironing out final details, such as fees for fishing on the lake, authority Executive Director John Kime said. Meanwhile, work crews for the authority remain on track to complete the water treatment plant and related water lines in time to begin supplying drinking water to customers in the summer of next year. The authority would start supplying drinking water by the end of June, contingent on state regulatory approval, Kime said.

Perdue sees signs of better times BY DAVID NIVENS ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

GREENSBORO – Gov. Beverly Perdue said Tuesday she has seen some signs of an improving economy. And that is something farmers, who are facing high production costs and stagnant product prices, want to hear. North Carolina was one of the six hardest hit states in the recession, according to many economists. “I know how hard it has been for you,” Perdue said during a session of the North Carolina Farm Bureau’s 74th annual meeting in Greensboro. “Good in this economy is when things have not gotten any worse. We are beginning to see a better

day. I’m optimistic about this state.” Despite the impact of the recession, the state has maintained a AAA bond rating, and the Tarheel State is recognized by development experts as friendly to business. Perdue said she had no idea how hard the recession had hit the state when she took office in January. By April there was a $4 billion state budget deficit. The state still faces 11 percent unemployment, and tax collections continue to stagnate. “We balanced the budget, cut the work force, and we are investing in teachers,” Perdue said. “We are on the right track. That’s the good news I have to report.” Perdue furloughed state

employees and agreed with the General Assembly to raise sales and income taxes to balance the budget. Meanwhile, some farmers still struggle to pay their debts because of low product prices. “I hear from people everywhere I go how hard it is,” Perdue said. “Nobody thought hog prices would get so low.” Perdue said she will continue to work for

farmland preservation and help farmers develop global markets. Perdue recently returned from trade mission to Japan and China. “We have to give a face to North Carolina,” Perdue said. “China and Japan need our food and fiber.

Council members have said the need to build a town hall is very important because the governing body currently has its meetings at the Wallburg Fire Department. The town pays the fire department $3,000 a year to rent space to have its meetings, according to Swaim. “We’ve been working on this for quite some time now and I’m excited about where we are at and where Mr. Fuller has got us in the process,” Swaim said. “I hope the community is excited about it, and I think it’s going to lay the foundation for years to come.” Fuller said he hopes to have the project out to bid by the end of February or the first of March. He expects the town hall to be completed in a year.

He is always wanting to do the right thing, willing to do what it takes to get the department to succeed.” Echoing Insley’s words, Capt. James Mills called Elgin a “super cop.” “(John) is there for the agency and other officers, and he displays the quality of leadership that you look for in an individual performing the duties of a police officer,” Mills said. “He has helped guide the training efforts, the ongoing training that is required to maintain all the K-9s in top performance for their duties. ... He’s kind of the focal point as the leadership for the K-9 program, along with Sgt. Jason Baity who oversees the K-9 program as well.” Following in the footsteps of his father, Elgin decided to embark on a career in law enforcement because his father, Jerry

County considers new transportation contract BY DAVID NIVENS ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

GUILFORD COUNTY – Commissioners will make another attempt Thursday to approve a new $13.2 million contract for transportation and mobility services that includes performance standards. Last month, the Guilford County Board of Commissioners voted 10-1 to give County Manager Brenda Jones-Fox authority to negotiate a new contract with California-based MV Transportation. The board will consider a proposed draft contract during a 5:30 p.m. Thursday meeting at the Old

AT A GLANCE

Contract: A three-year deal not to exceed $13.2 million, starting Feb. 1. MV Transportation’s current contract ends Jan. 31. Service area: For riders living in Guilford County without access to GTA in Greensboro or Hi tran in High Point. Fares: $2.50 each way.

Courthouse in Greensboro. The county provides transportation services to elderly and indigent residents, as well as to those who need rides to doctors, hospitals or their jobs. MV Transportation has handled the services for the last three years for the

county’s Transportation and Mobility Services. Guilford County Emergency Services Director Alan Perdue led a new committee that recommended strong contract guidelines for on-time service and limited service during “inclement” weather.

“We want to hold people accountable,” Perdue said. “The data we will collect will help with that.” The new draft contract includes these requirements: • On time: Pickup from 20 minutes before to 20 minutes after the scheduled time will be considered on-time service. Each month, 95 percent of completed trips must be on time. MV could face a $1,000 penalty for each failure to meet a rider on time, for verified customer complaints, and for failing vehicle maintenance standards. • Trips: A 90-minute limit.

• No-shows: Drivers would wait no longer than five minutes if they arrive during the 40-minute pickup window. While waiting, drivers will be required to contact their dispatcher to confirm a rider’s plan to make a trip. Drivers must leave a no-show notice at the rider’s door before leaving if the passenger fails to board. • Warnings: Passengers who do not show for a ride may receive a warning letter about suspension of services. Passengers may appeal a suspension to the county transportation manager. dnivens@hpe.com | 888-3626

Commissioners want company to resolve complaints BY DAVID NIVENS ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

GUILFORD COUNTY – Some county officials have criticized MV Transportation for years for unreliable service based on complaints they have received from riders. Republican Commissioner Billy Yow, who voted against continuing negotiations with MV, said the county would be “at risk” if MV gets the new contract.

Commissioners once seemed prepared to contract with another company at a higher cost in October, but changed their course. “The contract is over, and we should not be held hostage by MV anymore,” Yow said last month during a board meeting. Democratic Commissioner Paul Gibson and Republican Commissioner Linda Shaw also said they have received calls from disgruntled riders. Some riders have complained that

TMS vans were late or left them stranded. “I’ve asked people to call me,” Gibson said last month. “I am disappointed with the service. There also were complaints before MV had the contract. But we can do better.” MV officials so far have agreed to customer-service accountability standards in a proposed draft contract, said County Manager Brenda Jones-Fox. Grants will pay about 70 per-

Innocence panel faces crucial test RALEIGH (AP) – After North Carolina was forced to release a series of wrongly convicted people from prisons early in the decade, leaders established a pioneering agency to swiftly assess claims of innocence. Three years later, the North Carolina Innocence Inquiry Commission has yet to free anyone. North Carolina remains the only state with a government agency solely dedicated to verifying claims of innocence. The commission has moved only one case to a panel of judges, which denied an exoneration. The commission’s latest case involves Craig Taylor, who is serving a minimum of six years in prison as a habitual felon. He says he’s the real culprit in the 1991 death of 26-year-old Jacquetta Thomas; another man, Greg Taylor, who is not related, was convicted and is serving time for her slaying. Colon Willoughby, the district attorney in the case, said Craig Taylor has made a habit of admitting to killings.

Obama envoy seeks Korea’s return to talks SEOUL, South Korea – An envoy dispatched by President Barack Obama launched a mission Tuesday to coax North Korea to rejoin international talks on ending its nuclear programs amid warnings of strong sanctions if Pyongyang refuses. Veteran diplomat Stephen Bosworth’s visit is being closely watched for signs whether the isolated communist country will return to the negotiating table after carrying out an atomic test blast in May and quitting the six-nation talks.

FBI takes U.S. terror probe to India, Pakistan ISLAMABAD – The FBI is sending a team to Pakistan and India as part of an inquiry into a Chicago man accused of plotting against a Danish newspaper and sizing up targets ahead of last year’s deadly terrorist attacks in Mumbai, India’s financial capital. Pakistan’s role in alleged plots spanning three countries has increasingly come under scrutiny as new details emerge about the case and suspect David Coleman Headley’s links to the country.

Students, militia clash in 2nd day of protest TEHRAN, Iran – Hard-line militiamen firing tear gas and throwing stones stormed a crowd of thousands of university students protesting for a second day Tuesday, as Iran threatened a tougher crackdown on the opposition after the biggest anti-government demonstrations in months. More than 200 people were arrested in Tehran on Monday during protests by tens of thousands at universities nationwide, and Iran’s top prosecutor warned further unrest would not be tolerated.

BAGHDAD (AP) – A suicide car bomb flattened a court building and an explosives-rigged ambulance blew down walls like dominos near the Finance Ministry during a wave of coordinated attacks Tuesday that targeted high-profile symbols of Iraqi authority. At least 127 people were killed. The blasts – at least five in total – marked the third major strike on government sites since August and brought uncomfortable questions for Iraqi leaders. These include signs al-Qaida in Iraq is regrouping and concerns over the readiness of Iraqi forces to handle security alone as U.S. forces depart. The bombings also brought swift accusations about the motives behind the attacks. Officials claimed a Sunni insurgent alliance, includ-

Report: Brazil police killed more than 11,000 RIO DE JANEIRO – Police in Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo have killed more than 11,000 people in the past six years, many execution-style, according to a report released Tuesday by Human Rights Watch. Few of the officers have been charged in the extrajudicial killings, which are often labeled in police reports as the deaths of suspects who resisted arrest, the report said.

Uganda debates death penalty for gays KAMPALA, Uganda – Proposed legislation would impose the death penalty for some gay Ugandans, and their family and friends could face up to seven years in jail if they fail to report them to authorities. Even landlords could be imprisoned for renting to homosexuals. Gay rights activists say the bill, which has prompted growing international opposition, promotes hatred and could set back efforts to combat HIV/AIDS. They believe the bill is part of a continentwide backlash because Africa’s gay community is becoming more vocal.

U.K. believed Iraq had dismantled weapons LONDON – Britain believed Iraq had dismantled its chemical and biological weapons in the run-up to the 2003 invasion but thought it was possible they could be reassembled, the former head of the country’s Joint Intelligence Committee said Tuesday. John Scarlett, who chaired the committee from 2001 to 2004 before moving to MI6, Britain’s foreign intelligence agency, told a panel of inquiry that it had long been believed that Iraq had been dismantling weapons in order to conceal them.

Obama proposes hiring tax incentive

Slain officers honored TACOMA, Wash. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A procession of 2,000 cars followed the flag-draped caskets of four slain police officers to a memorial service Tuesday as thousands of mourners, mostly members of law enforcement from across the country, lined the streets. The Lakewood officers were killed Nov. 29 before the start of their shift. Authorities say Maurice Clemmons singled them out and spared employees and other customers at the coffee shop in Parkland.

WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; President Barack Obama on Tuesday proposed a tax incentive for small businesses that add workers, even as Congress struggles to figure out how such an idea would work. Lawmakers have been working for several months to develop a tax credit for businesses that hire workers, but they have been unable to figure out how to do it in a way that wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be abused.

Government-run insurance option out in reform deal WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Democratic senators say they have a tentative deal to drop a government-run insurance option from health care legislation. No further details were immediately available. But liberals and moderates have been discussing an alternative, including a private insurance arrangement to be supervised by the federal agency that oversees the system through

which lawmakers purchase coverage. Additionally, talks centered on opening up Medicare to uninsured Americans beginning at age 55, a significant expansion of the large government health care program that currently serves the over-65 population. Sen. Tom Harkin of Iowa told reporters he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like the agreement but would support it to the hilt in an attempt to pass health care legislation.

No injuries are reported. Prince William County Police spokeswoman Kim Chinn says the suspect is an â&#x20AC;&#x153;upset studentâ&#x20AC;? who was armed with a highpowered rifle.

Good ideas can be extended, and I believe that the idea to organize a farmers’ market in Trinity is a good idea. A farmers’ market would provide local, affordable, quality food to the community. Trinity has implemented a Land Development Plan which includes a farmers’ market. Kristen Varner, newly elected to Trinity City Council, also has expressed her desire to have a farmers’ market in Trinity. I would like to expand this idea to include space for community gardening. Beside providing a local food supply, community gardening can provide a sense of community and involvement among residents. Municipal and county public lands could be used for this

Churches also could volunteer yard space to be turned into gardens. Figs, blueberries, tomatoes, squash, cole crops, fruit trees, grape vines, herbs and spices can be attractive. Gardens at Old Salem are good examples. Food plants can also be landscaping in many ways. Trinity and neighboring cities can provide public space and assistance with applicable codes, rules and laws. N.C. Agricultural Extension can provide help and information to hands on gardening and perhaps could use community gardens as demonstration projects.

ou recognize the situation from the get-go when you read statistics about the local unemployment situation – provided by the N.C. Employment Security Commission – and the only positive sign is that the jobless rate remained the same (9.6 percent) in Forsyth County. Unemployment rates increased in 74 of North Carolina’s 100 counties and rests at 10.7. The rates sit at 11.2 percent (up onetenth of a percent) in Guilford County, 11.3 (up three-tenths) in Randolph and 13.1 (up from 12.5) in Davidson County. Those figures accentuate the declaration by Bobby Smith, president of United Way of Greater High Point, that “our greatest need in the area is jobs, especially jobs with benefits. That probably solves 90 percent of the issues which cause someone to visit a United Way agency.” Smith had told The High Point Enterprise that, in addition to the normal increase in people seeking help during the winter months, there is an even larger volume of people this year because they are trying to cope in these tough economic times. Most of the United Ways’ 29 partner agencies and other nonprofits operating in the greater High Point area have experienced funding decreases (from governments and donors) while trying to handle dramatically increasing demands for assistance, especially for paying utility, housing and food bills. Example: Calls to the United Way 211 assistance phone line more than doubled in October (compared to the same month in 2008). We all know it’s relatively certain that more than a few dozen jobs aren’t going to miraculously be created between now and the end of the year and that job creation locally probably will continue to be slim as we begin the new year. So help for people in need must be found in other pursuits. As part of a series of articles titled “Cries for help – Struggling through the holidays” appearing in Enterprise beginning with Sunday’s edition, there were at least 10 suggestions of how you can ease others’ burdens and help them get through this period of what Smith calls “record demands for fewer resources than ever before.” If you haven’t contributed to this year’s United Way campaign, do so today. Keep in mind the true spirit of the season we celebrate this month: Glory to God in the highest, and on Earth peace, good will toward men” and, as we’ve been told many times, “It is more blessed to give than to receive.”

Administration is giving us a snow job on jobs creation

P

resident Obama keeps talking about the jobs his administration is “creating” but there are more people unemployed now than before he took office. How can there be more unemployment after so many jobs have been “created”? Let’s go back to square one. What does it take to create a job? It takes wealth to pay someone who is hired, not to mention additional wealth to buy the material that person will use. But government creates no wealth. Ignoring that plain and simple fact enables politicians to claim to be able to do all sorts of miraculous things that they cannot do in fact. Without creating wealth, how can they create jobs? By taking wealth from others, whether by taxation, selling bonds or imposing mandates. However it is done, transferring wealth is not creating wealth. When government uses transferred wealth to hire people, it is essentially transferring jobs from the private sector, not adding to the net number of jobs in the economy. If that was all that was involved, it would be a simple verbal fraud, with no gain of jobs and no net loss. In reality, many other things that politicians do reduce the number of jobs. Politicians who mandate various benefits that employers must provide for workers gain politically by seeming to give people something for nothing. But making workers more expensive means that fewer are likely to be hired. During an economic recovery, employers can respond to an increased demand for their companies’ products by hiring more workers – creating more jobs – or they can work their existing employees overtime. Since workers have to be paid time-and-a-half for overtime, it might seem as if it would always be cheaper to hire more workers. But that was before politicians began mandating more benefits per worker. When you get more hours of work from the existing employees, you don’t need to pay for additional mandates, as you would have to when you get more hours of work by hiring new people. For many employers, that makes it cheaper to pay for overtime. The data show that overtime hours have been increasing in the economy while more people have been laid off. There is another way of reducing the cost of government-imposed mandates. That is by hiring temporary workers, to whom the

mandates do not apply. The number of temporary workers hired has increased for the fourth consecutive month, even though there are millions of unemployed people who could be hired for regular jobs, if it were not for the mandates that OPINION politicians have imposed. Economists have long been Thomas saying that there is no free Sowell lunch, but politicians get elected ■■■ by seeming to give free lunches, in one form or another. Yet there are no magic wands in Washington to make costs disappear, whether with workers or with medical care. We just pay in a different way, often a more costly way. Nor can these costs all be simply dumped on “the rich,” because there are just not enough of them. Often people who are far from rich pay the biggest price in lost opportunities. A classic example is the minimum wage law. Minimum wage laws appear to give low-income workers something for nothing – and appearances are what count in politics. Realities can be left to others, so long as appearances get votes. People with low skills or little experience usually get paid low wages. Passing a minimum wage law does not make them any more valuable. At a higher wage, it can just make them expendable. Raising the minimum wage in the midst of a recession was guaranteed to increase unemployment among the young – and it has. None of this is peculiar to the current administration. The Roosevelt administration created huge numbers of government jobs during the 1930s – and yet unemployment remained in double digits throughout FDR’s first two terms. Constant government experiments with new bright ideas is another common feature of Obama’s “change” and FDR’s New Deal. The uncertainty that this unpredictable experimentation generates makes employers reluctant to hire. Destroying some jobs while creating other jobs does not get you very far, except politically. But politically is what matters to politicians, even if their policies needlessly prolong a recession or depression.

generous seems so much easier in December than any other time of year. There are more active charities and more time off to spend TEEN VIEW with family. Attaching â&#x20AC;&#x153;happy Leslie Ann holidaysâ&#x20AC;? to any Blake kind deed always â&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  makes it justifiable, whereas in any other month generosity is so unexpected; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s almost out of place. It shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be. Think again about the beautiful picture of December that always makes us smile â&#x20AC;Ś except in May. Imagine families happily setting aside time to spend together despite their end-ofyear obligations. Imagine a fast-food cashier who smilingly watches as each customer drops his or her change into a charity box by the register. Imagine local food pantries stuffed full to bursting. And imagine children in a village in Africa who are gratefully getting accustomed to deliveries from that far-off land of kindhearted people called America. In a way, what the world needs most is for Christmas to never end. In a culture centered around self, the holidays are the one reminder that we each have the capacity to put others first, and that we enjoy doing so. So on that free Saturday in May, remember that â&#x20AC;&#x201C; though they may not be accompanied by flashing decorations â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the family room, soup kitchen, and charity organizations are the same place you left them last December, waiting to warm your heart long after the snow outside has melted.

or Thanksgiving two weeks ago, I visited my wifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family in Columbia, S.C. We ate turkey and played games, but mostly hung out in the living room. There we watched the Cowboys beat the Raiders. We shared our excitement about two pregnancies in the family, and I waltzed with my energetic 4-year-old niece. It was a wonderful day. Driving back from Columbia, however, I began to wonder what would happen if our Thanksgiving home had no living room? Our dancing, talking and sports watching would have had to find another room in which to flourish. A living room is to a home what a downtown is to a city. It is the heart. It is the place people gather. It is the one area everyone calls their own regardless of how they feel about people on the other side of town.

very year when December rolls around, there are sights that surround us which could warm anyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heart. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to picture. Families play upbeat tunes as they hang the stockings and trim the tree. Change is dropped into The Salvation Army bucket without a second thought. Teenagers volunteer at soup kitchens with smiles on their faces. Shoe boxes are sent off to Third World countries for children who will forever remember the day America came to visit. And everyone, whether or not they celebrate Christmas, has one thing in common: They spend more time, money and thoughts on their loved ones, and on even strangers, than on themselves. Last weekend as I strolled through Targetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Christmas corner, I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help but watch the families who were shopping together. In observing children excitedly jumble together streams of wishes for the season to come, parents patiently listen, and friends make jokes about the gifts they would give each other, I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help but notice something. Everyone was smiling at each other. So what is it about December that makes everyone so happy? And why canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t this spirit last longer than one month? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to choose one thing about the holidays that reaches across all religions and backgrounds as the common source of holiday cheer. I contemplated all the different things that bring a smile to my face specifically in this time of year and realized that the most universal heart-warmer is something that has always been associated with December: selflessness. There are opportunities for selflessness year-round. And yet, we rarely have the inclination to spread good cheer at other times, simply because being

Antique event sees boost in business during recession BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – When jobless rates rise and money gets tight, some folks will look to an old, family heirloom like their grandmother’s gold necklace to bring in the extra cash they need. That’s the kind of trend antique buyers at the Great Treasure Hunt, in High Point until Saturday, have seen over and over again. “A lot of unique and interesting items come to us with the economy like it is,” said Jon McNeill, a spokesman for the Kernersville-based group. “Especially during the holidays, people need extra money.” Traveling the country in search of items like gold, silver and rare coins, the Great Treasure Hunt is making a stop at the Days Inn and Suites at 120 S. W. Cloverleaf Place. Antique buyers appraise items and offer cash for desired pieces on the spot. Matt Block, event manager for the show in High Point, said he had seen numerous people make much-needed cash from items that had been in storage. “A lady came to me a few weeks ago that needed new tires on her car. She sold a gold necklace to us that covered the cost of all four tires,” Block said. A High Point resident sold a baseball bat to buyers on Tuesday that is said to have been signed by Mickey Mantle. The item will go through an authentication process next, Block said. The company’s hunt for antiques once was limited to sports memorabilia until it branched out to search for all collectibles across the nation. They won’t buy antique glassware or furniture, but other collectibles – from comic books and jewelry to professional instruments – are all fair game at the show. And they seem to turn up more and more in an economic downturn. “A lot of things that people haven’t wanted to part with before, they’re bring to us now.” phaynes@hpe.com | 888-3617

Agency brings Christmas smiles to kids BY DARRICK IGNASIAK ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

THOMASVILLE – With the help of hundreds of sponsors, Fairgrove Family Resource Center is ensuring that about 400 children have gifts for Christmas. As part of its annual Gifts from the Heart program, the center is seeking for sponsors to purchase items for children. The program is offered to families who are experiencing financial difficulty, said Terri Nelson, the center’s executive director. “Right now, we need sponsors daily because there are people who are requesting the help and need help,” she said, adding that the center hopes to have a

sponsor for every child and family by Thursday. Nelson said sponsors will receive a shopping list, which includes a child’s clothing needs and a few of the child’s wants. Each child is assigned a number to protect their identity. Guidance counselors and teachers select the families who need the assistance the most. “This year, the need is worse because people who in the past were sponsors are actually asking for help this year, so it’s a completely different environment now than last year,” Nelson said. “If you are already in financial crisis trying to find out what you are doing for Christmas makes it worse.” Nelson said the program

CHEER FUND

Cheer Fund collects more than $1,000 in donations ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

The 2009 Christmas Cheer Fund has received $1,819 today. That brings the total in donations to $7,384. This year’s goal is $35,000. The fund, operated by the Kiwanis Club of High Point, provides Christmas gifts for nearly 1,500 children identified by the Guilford County Department of Social Services. The campaign was started in 1924 by The High Point Enterprise as a campaign to raise money for needy families. “Local organizations, such as the Rotary, Kiwanis and Civitan clubs, are to aid in taking care of these families,” the Enterprise said in a front page article

published Dec. 12, 1924. The initial campaign collected $848. The campaign has changed responsibility over the years. It was operated as an Empty Stocking Fund by the High Point Jaycees for about 30 years, after it was passed around between different private local residents and groups. When the last local nonprofit charitable organization owner, the late Benny Braica, retired in the late 1990s, the High Point Kiwanis Club took over what’s now called the Christmas Cheer Fund. This year’s distribution of gifts will be from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. Dec. 19 at Mount Vernon Baptist Church, 716 Leonard Ave. Parents of eligible chil-

dren will be mailed vouchers that they can redeem for gifts. Donations should be made out to Christmas Cheer Fund and mailed to P.O. Box 5467, High Point, NC 27261.

Dallas FUNERAL doctor who Sechrest treated JFK dies

Funeral & Cremation Service Since 1897

DALLAS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Dr. Malcolm Oliver Perry II, who attended to President John F. Kennedy at Parkland Memorial Hospital after he was shot in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963, has died. He was 80. The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center says Perry died Saturday after a battle with lung cancer. Perry was an assistant professor of surgery at UT Southwestern and a vascular surgeon on the Parkland staff when he became the first staff surgeon to treat Kennedy. He found no vital signs but noted a convulsive effort to breath. Perry performed a tracheotomy on Kennedy while other doctors and surgeons gathered to help. Perry and another surgeon performed CPR on Kennedy until the president was declared dead.

Researcher who pioneered TB treatment dies LONDON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; John Crofton, a researcher renowned for his groundbreaking work on the treatment of the tuberculosis, has died at his home in Scotland. He was 97. Dr. Crofton died on Nov. 3 in Edinburgh, according to his family and the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh. The cause of death was not given. Born in Dublin, Ireland, into a doctorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family, Crofton was particularly instrumental in finding the combination of drugs needed to combat tuberculosis in the 1950s, when doctors were trying to perfect the use of antibiotics against the often lethal disease, the Royal College of Physicians said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The work of Sir John

and his colleagues has saved many, many thousands of lives worldwide. Sir John worked tirelessly throughout his life and he was still active until very recently,â&#x20AC;? the group said in a statement. After attending school in England and serving in the Royal Army Medical Corps in World War II, Crofton turned his attention to tuberculosis in 1951. He led a team of doctors and bacteriologists in Edinburgh who developed effective drug treatment combinations that greatly reduced death rates attributed to the disease. His multi-drug approach to tuberculosis also has proven effective in the treatment of various cancers and AIDS.

Gov. Beverly Perdue announced Tuesday that Dalton would be chairman of the Governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Logistics Task Force. She signed an executive order at the headquarters

of a Raleigh company that provides logistics services worldwide. The task force will examine the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roads, highways, ports, airports and railroads and focus on better ways to move people and goods efficiently so the state can be an attractive business location. The panel is supposed to make recommendations to Perdue twice a year through the end of 2011.

Mission Possible earns good grades BY DAVID NIVENS ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

GUILFORD COUNTY â&#x20AC;&#x201C; For High Point Central Principal Revonda Johnson, the Mission Possible incentives program works because it helps school principals develop the best teachers. And it takes the best teachers to raise student performance. Johnson, whose school led incentives pay with $51,420 last year, praised the program Tuesday â&#x20AC;&#x153;because all of us have been able to celebrate success.â&#x20AC;? Teachers at 30 low-achieving schools can earn more than $2,500 a year in addition to their regular salaries. Principals can earn up to $15,000 more. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our motto is to be second to no one and staff development has allowed us to do that,â&#x20AC;? Johnson told seven Guilford County Board of Education members attending an information session. Johnson extended teacher training to her entire staff at first and then focused on target areas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were able to take the school

TEACHER PAY

â&#x20AC;&#x201C;

Pay Plans: School district officials are considering a range of incentive pay options, ranging from true merit pay to using bonuses to achieve specific goals in literacy or math education. Mission Possible: The school board implemented Mission Possible during the 2006-2007 school year with an $8 million federal grant. In 2006, the University of North Carolina system and local foundations gave the school system a $2 million grant for the Cumulative Effect math incentive program at some high schools.

up one more step and that was exciting for us.â&#x20AC;? Johnson said. The school board is reviewing Mission Possible along with other â&#x20AC;&#x153;pay for performanceâ&#x20AC;? plans. The district spent $3.9 million last year for the program, with $491,000 for professional develop-

ment and $3.1 million for teacher incentives. Administrators said the program has helped recruit highly qualified teachers to low-performing schools. Also, teacher and principal turnover has decreased from a high of 30 percent two years ago and school climate has improved based on annual faculty and parent surveys. Staff turnover at 11.7 percent was 1 percentage point less that the district rate last year. However, there are still some achievement gaps between Mission Possible and other schools. Most Mission Possible schools have made gains in annual test scores. For example, High Point Central has gained 17 percent in geometry proficiency since 2007, and 5.1 percent in Algebra I. But there has been a decline of 4.9 percent in Algebra II and 3 percent decline in English. Many teachers and administrators want to expand the program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are other schools on our radar,â&#x20AC;? said Amy Holcombe, the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s executive director of talent development. dnivens@hpe.com|888-3626

Judge moves ex-Marineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trial JACKSONVILLE (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A North Carolina judge ruled Tuesday that the trial of a 22-year-old former Marine accused of killing a pregnant colleague will be held outside the county where authorities say it occurred. Onslow County Superior Court Judge Charles Henry ruled Tuesday that the trial of Cesar Laurean should be moved, with the agreement of the prosecution and defense. The judge set a trial date of June 28, 2010, although that date depends

on where the trial is moved. Both sides have until Dec. 18 to file suggestions on a potential trial location. Cesar Laurean is charged with first-degree murder in the death of 20-year-old Lance Cpl. Maria Lauterbach of Vandalia, Ohio, whose burned body was found buried behind Laureanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house. Lauterbach was about eight months pregnant when she died, but DNA tests revealed that Laurean wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the father.

Laurean fled to Mexico shortly before her charred remains were found buried in his backyard in Jacksonville in January 2008. He was arrested in April 2008, and extradited to North Carolina earlier this year. District Attorney Dewey Hudson wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say where he wanted to move the case, but said he was ready to try it wherever the court decides. Defense attorney Dick McNeil said he would like to see the trial moved

Husbandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pursuit of wifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;family historyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; bewilders her

D

ear Abby: My husband, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bud,â&#x20AC;? and I have been married more than 50 years. It has been a great half-century. We have good jobs and a fantastic family. A problem has arisen recently that I need advice about. When I met Bud, I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a virgin. I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t promiscuous, but I did end several dates with a â&#x20AC;&#x153;grand finale.â&#x20AC;? Bud knew about it and was OK with it then, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still OK with it now. But he keeps asking me to describe those dates down to the most intimate detail. He says they are part of our â&#x20AC;&#x153;family history,â&#x20AC;? just like our school activities and other events with family and friends before we started going together. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure I can remember everything, but Bud wants to hear about those things I can recall. What do you think about this? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Caught Off Guard Dear Caught: Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be fascinated to know why, after more than 50 years, your husband is suddenly pumping you for the information. Could he find the idea of you and another man titillating? To me, â&#x20AC;&#x153;family historyâ&#x20AC;? begins when a couple forms a family, not before. If discussing the subject of your premarital sexual experiences makes you uncomfortable, then donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take the bait because if you do, I have a hunch your husband will never stop fishing. Dear Abby: I work for a national package

delivery company. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nearing what we refer to as â&#x20AC;&#x153;peak seasonâ&#x20AC;? (ChristADVICE mas). We try our best Dear to deliver Abby the muchâ&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  anticipated packages on time, but sometimes we are unable to find the addresses. If there are no names or numbers on the mailboxes or on the houses, we waste a lot of time trying to locate the right residence through the process of elimination. What concerns us most is, if we â&#x20AC;&#x201C; experienced delivery people â&#x20AC;&#x201C; have problems finding a residence, we know an emergency vehicle will encounter the same problem. A few minutesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; delay can result in a tragic outcome if an EMT is unable to find a house. Please advise your readers to post their addresses clearly. If they do, it will help all of us to have a safer and happier holiday season. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Santaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Helpers in Alabama Dear Santaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Helpers: Thanks for this important reminder. Readers, to ensure that Santa finds you â&#x20AC;&#x201C; remember to have not only cookies and milk waiting by the fireplace, but also your address clearly visible so he can find you. And the same goes for the fire department, the police department and an ambulance

to New Bern in Craven County and said Hudson would like to hold the trial in either Clinton in Sampson County or in Wilmington in New Hanover County. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No matter where we go East of I-95 they are going to know about the case,â&#x20AC;? McNeil said. McNeil said he is not as concerned with people knowing about the case as much as people talking about it. The case is a hot topic on the streets of Jacksonville.

Dear Soon-to-be Homeowner: There may be reasons the owners are selling the house that have nothing to do with the fact that their children are growing. While the idea of a thank-you note is sweet, it would be better to wait until the sale is complete and you have lived in it awhile before writing. If you still feel the same a few months after youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in, then by all means share your gratitude and have the note forwarded to them by their real estate agent. DEAR ABBY is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Deputy, suspect die in shootout WILLIAMSTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A North Carolina sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deputy responding to a 911 call was shot to death by an armed suspect who was also killed when he refused to obey instructions from law officers. The Williamston Police Department and the Martin County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office say 38-year-old deputy Charlie Brown was shot and killed Tuesday morning after responding to a call about an armed suspect in Wil-

liamston, about 100 miles east of Raleigh. When deputies and officers arrived on the scene, officials say 36-year-old Jerry Lee Pace, Jr. was armed and resisting instructions. They say Pace fired his gun and law enforcement officers fired back, killing Pace. Brown was a 15-year veteran of law enforcement. He is survived by his wife, Cindy, and two daughters. The State Bureau of Investigation is looking into the incident.

State posts malpractice data online RALEIGH (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Medical consumers can now check whether their doctor has been convicted of a crime, lost a malpractice lawsuit or negotiated a settlement to close a malpractice case. The North Carolina Medical Board has expanded its Web site to include the data for its 35,000 licensed physicians and physician assistants, The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Tuesday. Fewer than 1 percent, or 221, have reported malpractice payments since May 2008, the starting date

for the reporting requirement. Since 2000, 2,618 have had at least one medical malpractice payment. About two dozen licensing boards in several states already publish malpractice information, medical board lawyer Thomas Mansfield said. All public disciplinary documents from the North Carolina boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s files were already online. But the regulatory boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disclosure of more information about the background of health providers has been sought and resisted for years.

if, heaven forbid, they should be needed. Dear Abby: Would it be improper of me to write the owners of a house we are buying to thank them for selling it to us? My wife and I keep getting conflicting answers. They have small children, so theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re probably moving to a bigger place to accommodate their children. Selling us their house is allowing us the opportunity of starting a family like they did. What do you think? Should we send it to them directly or to their real estate agent? We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to overstep our boundaries. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Soon-to-be Homeowner ln Philadelphia

Omega-3 fatty acids in fish and fish oil protect against heart attacks and strokes. There are two such fatty acids: EPA, eicosapentaenoic acid, and DHA, docosahexaenoic acid. Two fish meals a week (a total of 8-12 ounces per week) provide the necessary amounts of omega-3s. People who do not like fish or cannot take it for other reasons can meet their omega-3 goal by taking fish oil capsules. There is no difference in the EPA and DHA found in fish or found in capsules. Eating fish provides other benefits. Fish is a good protein source. Replacing red meat with fish is a healthy dietary move. Fish also have little saturated fat, the kind of fat that promotes liver production of cholesterol. Two fish meals a week, therefore, have their advantages. Flaxseeds, walnuts and canola oils have alpha linolenic acid, a fatty acid related to EPA and DPA. It too prevents heart attacks, but in a manner different from the fish oil fatty acids. It should be taken in addition to EPA and DHA, not in place of it. DR. DONOHUE regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

Panther men resume trek High Point gets another shot at S.C. State BY STEVE HANF ENTERPRISE SPORTS WRITER

HIGH POINT – Scheduling woes that have plagued High Point University for years led to a pair of relatively unique home-and-home series for the Panther men. Because teams from the major conferences only invite the HPU men for road games, and mid-major squads across the state and region haven’t wanted to risk losses at the Millis Center, the Panthers are playing South Carolina State and N.C. Central twice this season. The second of two games against S.C. State comes tonight in Orangeburg, 10 days after High Point handled the Bulldogs 74-66. “It’s not that I mind doing them, but I prefer it be a home-andhome the following year to get a

balance in our schedule, do some tournaments,” said new Panthers coach Scott Cherry, whose squad was under contract to play these games before he replaced Bart Lundy last March. “The thing with nonconference games is you like to try to test yourself against a team once. They played us well at our place and it will be a test for us at their place, so it’s a good game for us.” The Panthers embarked on their nearly four-hour bus trip Tuesday night with a 4-3 record. This

game marks the middle contest of a five-game road trip that doesn’t resume until Dec. 20 at Marshall, with a visit to Youngstown State two days later capping the adventure. By the time HPU returns to the Millis Center on Dec. 29 against N.C. Central – opening a fourgame home stand that includes three Big South Conference foes – Cherry hopes to see a muchimproved Panther squad on the floor. “We’ve just got to get better,” he said. “Defensively we’re giving up too good a percentage, too many rebounds; offensively we’ve got

to take care of the ball, get good shots and give ourselves chances to win.” South Carolina State (4-1) pulled in 22 offensive rebounds against the Panthers in the first meeting, and HPU ranks eighth in rebounding margin so far among the 10 Big South teams at minus-6.0 per game. Opponents are shooting 44.9 percent from the field against the Panthers, which also ranks eighth in the league. How HPU (4-3) fares tonight on the road against a Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference foe it saw so recently should be a good test for the upcoming Big South stretch. “The nonconference is stacked against us with 11 total games, seven on the road and three of them being guarantee games,” Cherry said, referring to visits to Wake Forest, Auburn and Marshall. “We told the team at the beginning of the year that what we want to do is come out of it with a winning record. It will help prepare us for when we get in conference and have to travel to the Libertys, Radfords, VMIs – we’ll have to play on the road a lot of times, and we should be comfortable doing it.” shanf@hpe.com | 888-3526

Cowgirls, Raiders split victories BY JASON QUEEN SPECIAL TO THE ENTERPRISE

BY JASON QUEEN SPECIAL TO THE ENTERPRISE

HIGH POINT – At this point in the season, Andrews is still searching for a floor leader who can handle opposing pressure. That didn’t happen Tuesday night. Southwest Guilford applied relentless pressure early, built a huge lead and cruised to a 72-30 nonconference win at home. The Cowgirls got contributions from up and down the lineup. “We had a starting lineup that’s pretty quick and athletic,” Southwest coach Jessica Bryan said. “We like to press early, and get a good jump on them each game.” Andrews, throwing a hoard of young players to the fire, couldn’t handle that pressure. “We’ve got a lot of people out there playing varsity basketball for the first time,” Andrews coach Weaver Walden said. “They’ve got a lot of pieces, everybody back from last year. And we’re just trying to get better for conference.” Andrews fell to 1-3. Southwest jumped to 3-1. The Cowgirls bolted to a 15-4 lead after one quarter, and took complete control by outscoring Andrews 22-6 in the second. Bria Byrd paced Andrews with 19 points. Zena Lovette led a balanced Cowgirl attack with 18 points. Brittany Connor added 10 points and Shanel Lawrence 9.

HIGH POINT – Southwest Guilford had no answer for Quan Stevenson when he got in the zone. The Cowboys had no answer for Andrews’ zone at the other end of the floor either. Stevenson nailed four 3-pointers to break open a close game in the second quarter, and the Raiders kept Southwest’s offense totally out of rhythm with a stifling effort. From there, Andrews never looked back en route to an 81-62 nonconference win at Southwest on Tuesday. Stevenson finished the night with 24 points, 12 of which came in that pivotal second quarter. “They missed a few shots and Quan got hot,” Andrews coach James Abell said. “That gave us a little breathing room. “We tried every defense we have, and that one seemed to work.” Much to the chagrin of Southwest coach Guy Shavers. “I thought we would do a better job against the zone than we did,” Shavers said. “Two of the last three games we’ve played, teams have played zone against us. But they did a good job of getting to their spots, and we couldn’t find our man. They hit three wide-open 3s in that second quarter.” With the score tied at 18-18 early in the second, Stevenson buried a 3 to give the Raiders a lead they never relinquished. The most impressive shot Stevenson hit didn’t even count, as his 75footer to close the third quarter was waved off. Alex Smith and Darius Rogers added 13 apiece for the Raiders, who improved to 2-1. Lateef DeGroat paced Southwest (0-4) with 13 points, and Braxton Daye scored 10. Southwest visits Western Guilford today, while Andrews travels to Grimsley today.

HIT AND RUN

orth Carolina’s football players and coaches can be forgiven if they utter one or two “Bah humbugs” between now and Dec. 26. The Tar Heels (8-4) battle 17th-ranked Pittsburgh (9-3) at 4 p.m. the day after Christmas in the Meineke Bowl in Charlotte. UNC was in line for a trip to the Music City Bowl in Nashville or perhaps one of the Florida bowls until the Gator Bowl pulled some strings to land Bobby Bowden’s 6-6 Florida State Seminoles.

That farewell appearance for Bowden, getting to take on former team West Virginia, was a nice gesture – for Bowden and the Seminoles. So, instead of a nice trip to Tennessee or the Sunshine State, Carolina heads to Charlotte for its second straight Meineke Bowl appearance. Last year, West Virginia edged UNC 31-30 in one of the most entertaining bowls of the season. I expect the Tar Heels and Panthers will

stage another great game on Dec. 26. Charlotte is a terrific city. It’s a great place to visit – unless it’s late December and 28 degrees with wintry precip. Somehow, a football team based in Chapel Hill should not draw the relatively short drive to Charlotte for a bowl game two straight seasons. Of course, it could be worse. There’s always Boise.

The season is over for Washington Redskins running back Clinton Portis. Now he’s left to contemplate where he might play next – and whether he will play again. Portis was in a reflective mood Tuesday after the Redskins placed him on injured reserve. Doctors have yet to clear him from a concussion he suffered a month ago, and he sounded like a player with a very opened-ended future. “I think I’ll get well,” Portis said on his weekly radio appearance on ESPN980. “I have to put the time into rehabbing and continuing to do what the doctors say, but at the same time, if this is the end, to have the opportunity to play for eight years has been amazing. I think I had a great career.” Portis’ season ends with a career-low 494 yards rushing on 124 carries and one touchdown. Although only 28, he already has 2,176 carries.

Monroe, last season’s Big East rookie of the year, recorded his third double-double of the season as the Hoyas (70) used their size advantage to control the paint at both ends.

Gammons to leave ESPN for MLB Network post INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – Peter Gammons is leaving ESPN after the winter meetings to join the MLB Network. Gammons’ departure from ESPN was announced Tuesday and MLB Network could announce his hiring as early as today, a baseball official said. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because MLB Network had not made the announcement. Asked about his decision at the winter meetings, Gammons said he couldn’t discuss it until Wednesday. Gammons joined ESPN in 1989 and has been an AP

Green Bay’s Donald Driver (80) catches a touchdown pass in front of Baltimore’s Lardarius Webb during the first half of Monday night’s game at Lambeau Field. The Packers grabbed a 27-14 victory in a game that featured 310 penalty yards.

Rodgers, Packers clip Ravens GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) – Ray Lewis believes that the Ravens will make a run to the playoffs. However, there is a big caveat. “I feel more than confident any time you tell me I’m going to get a Terrell Suggs and an Ed Reed back,” Lewis said. “You never stop fighting, that’s the beauty of this team, but we have to stop the things that are getting us in trouble real early, whether it’s the penalties or it’s the turnovers.” In Baltimore’s 27-14 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Monday night, it was both in an ugly, flagfilled contest that saw the teams combine for 310 penalty yards, tied for second-most in NFL history. “The penalties were unbelievable for both sides,” said Packers coach Mike McCarthy, whose team

won its fourth in a row to improve to 8-4 and now sits in a position of strength for an NFC wild-card spot. “The adversity that we overcame throughout the football game is something that we will definitely carry forward with us.” Aaron Rodgers threw three touchdown passes, two to Jermichael Finley, as the Ravens (6-6) struggled in coverage without their star safety, Reed, who sat out with hip and ankle injuries. Suggs (knee) has been out since Nov. 16. The result was five pass interference flags, the most on one team in the NFL since 2001. Green Bay was flagged for pass interference four times and there were 23 total penalties in the game. Rodgers fininshed 26 of 40 for 263 yards with two interceptions, only

his sixth and seventh of the season. Reed’s replacement, Tom Zbikowski, had one of the interceptions but also allowed Finley to make a catch over him for the Packers’ first TD that made it 10-0. Green Bay extended the lead to 17-0 just before halftime on Donald Driver’s 8-yard TD reception, but the Packers found themselves in a suddenly tight game when the Ravens scored twice in 30 seconds after Rodgers’ second interception. Baltimore’s Joe Flacco was 15 of 36 for 137 yards with a touchdown and three interceptions. The Packers sacked him three times, but the Ravens were able to close it to 17-14 on Kelley Washington’s 12-yard TD catch and a 1-yard TD by Willis McGahee after a 41-yard pass interference penalty on Tramon Williams.

Resilient Dolphins stay in playoff race MIAMI (AP) – Stephen Ross has been an NFL majority owner for 12 whole games, and he’s already impatient about his Miami Dolphins making the Super Bowl. This season’s game is Feb. 7 in Miami, and Ross wants the Dolphins to be the first team to play a Super Bowl in its own stadium. “It should only happen in Miami,” he said. “This year wouldn’t be soon enough.” Ross smiled as he spoke, and the comment would have been even funnier just last week, when his team appeared headed nowhere fast. Saddled with the NFL’s toughest schedule, the Dolphins started

the season 0-3, twice blew chances to reach .500 and lost Thanksgiving weekend at Buffalo in their worst performance since Bill Parcells came to town nearly two years ago. That left defending AFC East champion Miami at 5-6 and likely needing a sweep of the final five games for a return to the playoffs. “Our mettle got tested,” coach Tony Sparano said. As has been the case all season, the Dolphins bounced back. They fell behind New England 14-0 Sunday, then mounted a frantic rally, throwing 52 passes and kicking a field goal with barely a minute left to win 22-21.

“It was something out of a movie, man,” guard Justin Smiley said. “I am very honored to be a part of it.” With serious deficiencies at receiver, two rookies at cornerback and a first-year starter at quarterback, the Dolphins are probably not going to fulfill their owner’s Super Bowl wish. But a scenario sending them back to the playoffs is now an easier sell. New England (7-5) leads Miami in the division by only one game and has lost two in a row. As for the wildcard race, six AFC teams have more wins than the Dolphins, who play one of them Sunday at Jacksonville (7-5).

Quinn set for shot at rival Steelers BEREA, Ohio (AP) – Like so many Ohio kids raised on football, Brady Quinn developed a strong distaste for everything Pittsburgh Steelers. Growing up a die-hard Browns fan, Cleveland’s quarterback learned from an early age that those neighbors from Pennsylvania wearing black and gold were the enemy, Iron City villains to be despised and beaten whenever possible. Quinn’s heroes wore brown and orange. So which of the Steelers did he hate most? Jerome Bettis? Rod Woodson? Greg Lloyd? Bill Cowher? “I don’t know,” Quinn said on Tuesday. “I wasn’t really fond of any of them. That’s usually how it works.” Quinn, who has been showing signs he could blossom into a solid

NFL starter, will face Cleveland’s bitter – and much better – rival for the first time as a pro when the Browns (1-11) host the stumbling Steelers (6-6) on Thursday night. When the teams met on Oct. 18 at Heinz Field, Quinn watched from the sideline as the Steelers won their 12th straight over the Browns, 27-14. He had lost his starting job to Derek Anderson a few weeks earlier, benched after two starts by coach Eric Mangini. Quinn has been back under center for five starts, and it’s his turn to try and end the Steelers’ utter dominance over the Browns – 18 wins in 19 games since 2000. Cleveland hasn’t beaten Pittsburgh since Oct. 5, 2003, when Tim Couch directed the Browns to a 33-13 win.

Since then, Kelly Holcomb, Jeff Garcia, Trent Dilfer, Charlie Frye, Anderson and Bruce Gradkowski – who directed Oakland to a comeback win over Pittsburgh last week – all have failed to knock off the Steelers. Quinn’s up. But is he up to it? He’s coming off a three-touchdown, 271-yard performance against San Diego, Quinn’s second impressive outing in his last three games. After throwing one TD pass and five interceptions in his first three starts, he has seven TDs and not a single pick in his past three. Quinn has thrown 126 consecutive passes without an interception, the second-longest active streak in the league. Quinn is 0-7 as a starter this season and 1-9 in his stop-andstart pro career.

Steelers’ Polamalu could miss rest of season PITTSBURGH (AP) – With the Pittsburgh Steelers fast running out of games and his left knee still not healed, star safety Troy Polamalu isn’t certain if he will be back this season. Polamalu is hopeful of playing again, but he said Tuesday there is no definitive date for his return. Polamalu’s latest injury, to his posterior cruciate ligament, was initially expected to be less severe than the anterior cruciate ligament injury that kept him out of the Steelers’ second through fifth games. But he won’t play Thursday night in Cleveland, the fourth con-

secutive game he’s missed with his latest injury. The Steelers have 10 days off after Cleveland until their next game, and there is a chance the five-time Pro Bowl player could be ready to play Dec. 20 against Green Bay. However, Polamalu hasn’t been cleared to practice, much less play. Asked what it will take for him to play again this season, Polamalu said, “A whole lot of feeling. A whole lot of prayers. God willing, hopefully, I’ll be able to play. We’ll see what the doctor says.” Polamalu did not say when he is scheduled to be examined again, al-

though it is expected to be after the Steelers (6-6) play the Browns (1-11). Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward has made relatively fast comebacks from knee injuries by using a hyperbaric chamber, a device that increase the amount of oxygen circulating in the body and supposedly hastens injury recovery. Polamalu’s lengthy injury layoffs have affected a Steelers defense that was the NFL’s best statistically in 2007 and 2008. The Steelers have allowed more points (99) in the fourth quarter than all but two other teams, losing leads in the final quarter during five of their six losses.

integral part of its baseball coverage. He wrote for the Boston Globe starting in 1969 and also worked for Sports Illustrated (1976-78, 1986-90). “Peter was the best and the brightest in making the transition from print to video,” ESPN executive vice president John Walsh said in a statement Tuesday. The 64-year-old Gammons received the 2004 J.G. Taylor Spink Award for outstanding baseball writing and was honored during the 2005 Hall of Fame induction ceremony. He signed in October with Creative Artists Agency.

Nutt says no thanks to Kansas position OXFORD, Miss. (AP) – Mississippi coach Houston Nutt said Tuesday that he “appreciates the interest” but he is not pursuing the Kansas head coaching job. Nutt and Ole Miss athletic director Pete Boone issued statements after media reports suggested Nutt was interested in the Kansas job. Nutt said he’s staying put with the Rebels after guiding them to consecutive Cotton Bowl appearances in his two seasons in Oxford. Nutt is 17-8 in two seasons in Oxford and has guided Ole Miss (8-4) to consecutive eight-win seasons for the first time since 1989-90. The Rebels play No. 21 Oklahoma State in the Jan. 2 Cotton Bowl. Also Tuesday, a group of Kansas players issued a statement expressing their support for the program and athletic director Lew Perkins as he conducts his search for a successor to coach Mark Mangino. Mangino resigned last week in the midst of an investigation into his treatment of players.

Lopez heads 2010 class for Boxing Hall CANASTOTA, N.Y. (AP) – Danny “Little Red” Lopez always had one thing going for him when he entered a boxing ring – his punishing right hand. “He was a puncher,” former Associated Press boxing writer Ed Schuyler Jr. said. Was he ever. In a 10-year professional featherweight career, Lopez went 426 with 39 knockouts, a resume that has landed him in the International Boxing Hall of Fame. “I’m real happy and I feel pretty good,” said Lopez, who followed his brother Ernie into the ring, learning the sweet science in Orem, Utah, at the age of 16 before turning pro in 1971 and beginning his career with 21 straight knockouts. The 57-year-old Lopez

heads the 13-member class of 2010 announced Tuesday. Among the other living inductees voted in by the Boxing Writers Association are: light flyweight champ JungKoo Chang, the first South Korean boxer to make the Hall of Fame; manager Shelly Finkel; referee and commissioner Larry Hazzard; German promoter Wilfried Sauerland; matchmaker Bruce Trampler; and Schuyler, the longtime AP boxing writer. Posthumous honorees to be enshrined on June 13 include: light heavyweight Lloyd Marshall; featherweight champion Young Corbett II; lightweight champion Rocky Kansas; heavyweight contender Billy Miske; broadcaster Howard Cosell; and Paddington Tom Jones.

Hurricanes activate Ward from injured list RALEIGH (AP) – The Carolina Hurricanes have activated goaltender Cam Ward from the long-term injured list. Ward had missed the last 13 games after he was cut on the leg by a skate in a game at Columbus on Nov. 7. Ward is eligible to play

at New Jersey tonight. The 25-year-old Ward is one of the cornerstones of the Carolina franchise, and won the Conn Smythe trophy as the Most Valuable Player of the playoffs during the Hurricanes’ 2006 run to the Stanley Cup title.

Minnesota-Carolina to remain NFL’s night game on Dec. 20 NEW YORK (AP) – The Minnesota-Carolina matchup Dec. 20 will remain the NFL’s Sunday night game even though NBC had the option to choose another one. The league said Tuesday that the Green Bay-Pittsburgh game that day will start at 4:15 p.m. EST instead of 1 p.m. The league’s flexible scheduling policy allows it to change the Sunday night game to select a better matchup starting in Week 11. The Vikings are 10-2 entering this weekend’s meeting with Cincinnati. The Panthers are 5-7 before playing at New England.

Patrick unveils No. 7 JR Motorsports stock car

AP

Danica Patrick unveils her GoDaddy.com No. 7 JR Motorsports stock car during an event in Phoenix on Tuesday. Patrick has signed with the JR Motorsports team, owned by Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Rick Hendrick, and intends to make her first start in an ARCA Series race on Feb. 6 at Daytona International Speedway. Kelley Earnhardt, sister of JR Motorsports co-owner Dale Earnhardt Jr., worked to bring Patrick into the fold. Asked about the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expectations of Patrick, Earnhardt said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reasonable for her to be in the top 15 of the series when sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s running. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously, maybe the first few races, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see what that brings,â&#x20AC;? Earnhardt said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got to get in there and get used to the cars. Hopefully, everybody will remember that and wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be so quick to judge, which is

SP00504742

PHOENIX (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Danica Patrick signed with JR Motorsports on Tuesday to give NASCAR a try, but her schedule in the second-tier Nationwide Series has yet to be determined. Patrick will make her stock car racing debut in the Feb. 6 ARCA race at Daytona International Speedway, a day before sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be featured in a pair of Super Bowl ads for sponsor GoDaddy.com. The IndyCar sensation unveiled her green and orange No. 7 Chevrolet in a news conference at Chase Field with GoDaddy.com, which is sponsoring her in both series. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve all been working very hard for some time now to bring this all together,â&#x20AC;? Patrick said at a news conference. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s much relief there, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m starting to get a little bit nervous that now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to do my part of the deal and get out there in these cars and perform. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no doubt going to be challenging.â&#x20AC;? Patrick will juggle her new NASCAR job with her full-time job in IndyCar, where sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the seriesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; most marketable driver. She finalized a three-year contract extension last week with Andretti Autosport to run the full IndyCar schedule, but thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enough lag time in the schedule to do both. She will drive for the team owned by Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Rick Hendrick in the Nationwide Series. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think (NASCAR) is something weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to try to do before and after the IndyCar season, but we will look at some options,â&#x20AC;? she said. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not yet determined how many NASCAR races she will run in 2010. With flashbulbs popping, the black-clad Patrick posed between her NASCAR and IndyCar rides. Patrick said sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more comfortable with the demands of a heavier schedule â&#x20AC;&#x201C; something that she said she wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ready to do a few years ago, when speculation began to grow that she was considering racing stock cars. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m finally ready,â&#x20AC;? Patrick said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think that the schedule doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t intimidate me as much as it used to. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be a lot to learn.â&#x20AC;?

CBS: Advertisers paying 25% more NEW YORK – CBS chief Leslie Moonves says advertisers are now paying 25 percent more for TV commercial time than they did earlier in the year. That’s an indication that businesses are having the confidence to spend more on marketing. Each year, before the start of the fall television season, advertisers buy commercial time during a period called “upfronts.” Later, after the season has begun, advertisers buy additional time during the so-called “scatter market” closer to airtime.

Survey: Hiring remains scarce WASHINGTON (AP) – More of America’s largest companies will shrink their staffs than will hire in the next six months, according to the latest survey of their CEOs. A quarterly survey from the Business Roundtable released Tuesday found that 19 percent of the CEO expect to expand their work forces, while 31 percent predict a decrease in the next six months. That’s slightly better than the 13 percent who expected increased

hiring three months earlier. At that time, 40 percent forecast cuts. The CEOs also expect the overall U.S. economy to grow by 1.9 percent in 2010. That would mark a slowdown from the 2.8 percent pace in the third quarter of 2009. Last quarter’s growth followed four straight quarterly declines and was the strongest signal that a recovery from the recession had started. In more positive news, the group’s economic outlook index – a combination

of expectations for spending, sales and hiring – rose to 71.5, from 44.9 in the third quarter. Numbers above 50 represent economic growth. It was the first time the index rose above 50 since the third quarter of 2008. That survey did not reflect the sharp contraction that hit the economy in the six months that followed. The number of CEOs expecting to increase capital spending nearly doubled, to 40 from 21 percent. The number forecasting an in-

crease in sales grew to 68 from 51 percent. A new question on the survey asked CEOs to identify their greatest cost pressures. The largest group – about one-third – cited health care. The Roundtable has emerged as an aggressive voice in the debate over the Obama administration’s overhaul of the health care system. The group has applauded some measures it says would keep costs down. But it has criticized provi-

Airlines’ on-time performance falters ATLANTA – U.S. airlines did a poorer job getting passengers to their destinations on-time in October compared to the same month a year ago. The Department of Transportation said Tuesday that the 19 carriers surveyed recorded an overall on-time arrival rate of 77.3 percent in October. That was lower than the 86 percent recorded in October 2008 and below the 86.2 percent recorded in September of this year.

Kroger reports loss on writedown CINCINNATI – The Kroger Co. says it lost $875 million in its third quarter, blaming tough price competition and the struggling California economy’s hit on its grocery business. Cincinnati-based Kroger, which owns King Soopers and City Market in Colorado, also cut its profit and sales forecast for the full year.

Procter & Gamble chair to step down CINCINNATI – Procter & Gamble Co. announced Tuesday that the A.G. Lafley era is coming to a close at the world’s largest consumer products maker. Lafley, who stepped aside July 1 as CEO after nine years, will also hand over the chairman’s title Jan. 1 to his CEO successor, Bob McDonald. When Lafley, 62, gave way as CEO to McDonald, 56, the former operating chief who’s been with P&G since 1980, he said he would stay on as a fulltime chairman to help McDonald’s transition as president and CEO.

sions like a government-run plan for those who can’t get other insurance. “The economy is in the throes of a long transition back to health; recovery will be long, extending beyond 2010,” Ivan Seidenberg, CEO of Verizon Communications and chairman of the Roundtable, said in a statement. “The outlook of our CEOs reflects that reality: We see noticeable gains in sales and capital spending, but employment growth continues to lag.”

McDonald’s U.S. sales take a hit OAK BROOK, Ill. (AP) – McDonald’s Corp., the world’s largest fast-food chain, said Tuesday that a key U.S. sales figure fell in November, only the fourth time the monthly measurement failed to rise in more than 61⁄2 years. But the company continued to experience some growth overseas, and overall sales edged up 0.7 percent during the month. A softening dollar has

helped companies such as McDonald’s that have a large international presence because overseas revenue translates into more dollars. The chain has long been a bellwether of the industry and consumers have sought out its Dollar Menu items and other food products during the recession as they look to save money when dining out. But the performance

seemed to rattle investors, as its shares fell $1.48, or 2.4 percent, to $60.43 in premarket trading. The Oak Brook, Ill., company said sales at U.S. restaurants open at least 13 months dipped 0.6 percent in November. It was the second consecutive monthly drop of the sales figure and a bigger decline than October, when the measurement slipped 0.1 percent partly on strong year-ago comparisons.

Sales at stores open at least a year are considered a key indicator of a restaurant operator’s performance since they measure growth at existing restaurants rather than newly opened ones. McDonald’s domestic results have come under pressure of late in part because of high unemployment in the U.S., which keeps customers away during its breakfast and lunch hours.

CIT Group to exit bankruptcy NEW YORK (AP) – CIT Group Inc., one of the nation’s biggest lenders to small and mid-sized businesses, said Tuesday that a judge approved its reorganization plan and it plans to emerge from bankruptcy protection on Thursday. CIT Group filed for bank-

ruptcy protection on Nov. 1 after it failed to restructure outstanding debt to alleviate a cash crunch. The reorganization plan, which was approved by key bondholders in advance, reduces CIT’s total debt by $10.5 billion. It also defers debt maturities for three years.

CIT, based in New York, had continued to operate while working through bankruptcy proceedings. Reducing and delaying debt repayments gives CIT more time to repair its finances, which were hammered by the collapsing credit markets late last year and rising loan

defaults among its customers. CIT must also restructure its board of directors and find a new CEO now that it has completed bankruptcy proceedings. CEO Jeffrey Peek said in mid-October that he planned to retire by the end of the year.

RALEIGH – The N.C. Utilities Commission on Tuesday approved a Duke Energy rate increase that will raise its N.C. residential rates 7.5 percent over two years. The rate hike, Duke’s first in North Carolina since 1991, will cost typical residential customers about $3.70 a month extra in 2010 and $3.61 monthly in 2011. Duke had initially proposed a 13.5 percent increase effective next year. Utilities commissioners, however, approved the lower rates Duke agreed to in an October settlement with the commission’s Public Staff, which represents consumers, and large industrial customers.

Morgan names new CFO NEW YORK (AP) – Morgan Stanley elevated its chief financial officer to a new role as co-chief of investment banking and global securities trading Tuesday as part of a management shake-up ahead of James Gorman’s assumption of the CEO role on Jan. 1. Gorman, who is 51, succeeds John Mack, 65, who will remain as chairman. Colm Kelleher, who had been chief financial officer, will run Morgan Stanley’s institutional securities business along with Paul Taubman, who had been head of investment banking. Kelleher is 52, and Taubman is 48.

YouTube chief says ad sales soaring JERUSALEM (AP) – YouTube’s chief executive said Tuesday that ad sales are soaring but gave no word on whether the popular video-sharing site is making money. Chad Hurley, a YouTube co-founder, said the company had “two spec-

tacular quarters” and that the site gets more than a billion views a day. “Our cost continues to go down and our revenue continues to go up, it’s a good combination for success, we are going to continue to build on that,” Hurley said at a launch-

ing ceremony for a personal YouTube channel by Israeli President Shimon Peres. “We’ve continued to grow in terms of traffic, we are well over a billion views a day on our site, we receive close to 24 hours of video every minute.”

INDEX

NEW YORK (AP) – Investors rushed to safety Tuesday as concerns about spiraling debt loads and disappointing corporate reports tarnished hopes for an economic recovery. Stocks tumbled as investors favored safe-haven assets like the dollar and Treasurys. Most major stock indexes fell 1 percent, including the Dow Jones industrial average, which lost 104 points but ended off the day’s lows. An earnings forecast from 3M Co. and a sales report from McDonald’s Corp. disappointed investors. The reports weighed on the Dow and overshadowed an increased profit forecast from FedEx Corp., whose results are seen as a gauge for the health of the economy. Questions about debt levels in places from Greece to the Middle East-

ern city-state of Dubai added to investors’ concerns. Meanwhile, reports in Britain and Germany signaled that manufacturing remains weak. The unease drove the dollar and Treasury prices higher. The advancing dollar hit commodities prices, which, in turn, hurt energy and materials producers. A stronger dollar makes commodities more expensive for buyers overseas. The Dow ended down 104.14, or 1 percent, to 10,285.97 after being down as much as 140 points. It was the steepest point and percentage loss for the Dow since Nov. 27 and erased the indexes’ gain for December. The broader S&P 500 index fell 11.31, or 1 percent, to 1,091.94, while the Nasdaq composite index fell 16.62, or 0.8 percent, to 2,172.99.

ing the bank’s purchase of Merrill Lynch earlier this year. Shareholders stripped him of his chairman title in April and top executives have since left under his tenure. Last week, the bank announced plans to repay its $45 billion government bailout. The move would free the bank from the government restrictions that hampered its search for a new CEO, including executive pay limitations. The board is continuing to consider external candidates, the bank said. Two internal candidates, Chief Risk Officer Gregory Curl and Brian Moynihan, the head of consumer banking, are also being considered

by the bank as Lewis’ replacements. However, both men have been criticized by analysts as lacking experience or being Curl, who helped negotiate the bank’s $45 billion Troubled Asset Relief Program aid repayment, is also under scrutiny by New York attorney general Andrew Cuomo’s office in connection with the probe of the bank’s deal for Merrill Lynch, according to a report Tuesday in The New York Times. Earlier this year Curl testified with Cuomo’s office regarding the deal. “We are confident in the consistency and truthfulness of the Bank of America testimony throughout the investigation,” Bank of America spokesman Larry Di Rita said.

United Airlines orders 787, Airbus planes and around $6 billion for the Airbus planes. United President John Tague said the carrier got a discount on the price, which is common for jet orders, though he didn’t specify how much. “We felt that we had a significant opportunity by timing the order with the backdrop of the current economic environment,” he said. United has not yet worked out financing for the planes,

although Tague said the manufacturers agreed to provide loans if needed. The deal requires United to put up $152 million over the next five years. In October it raised about $424 million in a stock and notes offering, and it has been mortgaging other assets such as spare parts to get it through the drop-off in travel demand brought on by the recession.

Bank of America CEO decision looms

CHICAGO (AP) – United Airlines said on Tuesday it will spend billions over the next decade on 50 new jets, splitting its order between Boeing Co.’s 787 and the Airbus A350. Deliveries are expected between 2016 and 2019. The planes will replace United’s Boeing 747 and 767s. At list prices the new jets would be worth more than $10 billion, with about $4 billion for Boeing’s 787-8

CHARLOTTE (AP) – Bank of America’s board is meeting Tuesday to discuss potential replacements for CEO Ken Lewis who has said he plans to leave by the end of the year. It is unclear whether the board, which is meeting in Charlotte, has a specific candidate in mind or if any announcement will come following the meeting. Bank of America spokesman Scott Silvestri said Tuesday a decision will be made “in the near future.” Bank of America has been searching for a new CEO since it announced in late September that Lewis planned to retire Dec. 31. Lewis is leaving amid controversy surround-

That would bring total orders for the A350 to 530, Leahy said. “We’re not surprised by the decision to split the order,” Leahy said. He said it was noteworthy because it was the first time United has ever ordered non-Boeing wide-body jets.

Report: Heathrow expansion possible LONDON – A government-commissioned report has suggested that expansion of London’s overcrowded Heathrow Airport won’t break Britain’s commitment to cut carbon emissions – despite warning that an unchecked flying boom fueled by budget airlines would break those targets. The report from the influential Committee on Climate Change was seized on by airline and airport bosses as qualified backing for further growth of the industry – to the dismay of environmental lobbyists, who have targeted air travel as a major culprit behind global warming.

Crude prices fall for fifth straight day NEW YORK – Oil prices dipped below $73 a barrel Tuesday on a stronger dollar and a slew of economic data that did not indicate a quick rebound in demand from big energy users or from consumers. Benchmark crude for January delivery dropped $1.20 to $72.73 on the New York Mercantile Exchange. In London, Brent crude for January delivery fell 91 cents to $75.52 on the ICE Futures exchange.

FTC sues to stop deceptive credit card calls WASHINGTON – The Federal Trade Commission said Tuesday it has filed lawsuits against three groups allegedly offering worthless credit card interest rate reduction programs through illegal automated calls. The FTC said it is the second major law enforcement effort this year against telemarketers. The cases announced Tuesday were filed in federal courts in Florida, Georgia and Illinois. They name Economic Relief Technologies LLC; Dynamic Financial Group (U.S.A.) Inc., and JPM Accelerated Services as defendants. ENTERPRISE NEWS SERVICE REPORTS

U.N.: 2000-2009 may be warmest decade ever COPENHAGEN (AP) – A leaked Danish document at the U.N. climate conference provoked angry criticism Tuesday from developing countries who feared it would shift more of the burden to curb greenhouse gases on poorer countries. The issue gained new impetus, meanwhile, when negotiators displayed charts of data that said the current decade is on track to be the hottest on record for planet Earth. At the heart of the clash of ideas – stemming from draft texts attributed to Denmark and China – is the determination by the more impoverished states to bear a lesser burden than wealthy, more industrialized countries in the effort to slow global warming. Diplomats from developing countries and climate activists also complained the Danish hosts had pre-empted the negotiations with their draft

proposal, prepared before the two-week conference began. “The behind-the-scenes negotiation tactics under the Danish presidency have been focusing on pleasing the rich and powerful countries rather than serving the majority of states who are demanding a fair and ambitious solution,” said Kim Carstensen, head of the climate initiative for the environmental group WWF. The Danish draft proposal circulating at the 192-nation conference chips away at the wall between what developed and developing nations can be expected to do to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases. A sketchy counterproposal attributed to China would extend the 1997 Kyoto Protocol, which required 37 industrial nations to reduce emissions of carbon dioxide and other gases blamed for global warming by an average 5 percent by 2012.

Michel Jarraud, secretary-general of the World Meteorological Organization, holds up a temperature chart during a press conference at the U.N. Climate Conference in Copenhagen Tuesday. This decade has very likely been the warmest in the historical record, and 2009 will probably end up as one of the warmest years, the U.N. weather agency announced Tuesday at the second day of the 192-nation climate conference.

Hubble spies never-before-seen galaxies

Snow, wind hit Midwest DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – Fierce winds ripped away the roof of a police station, thousands of people lost power and drivers stuck by closed highways settled in to wait as storms swept out of the West to the nation’s midsection Tuesday. Much of the Upper Midwest was covered in deep snow, and strong winds Tuesday night were expected to create blizzard conditions. The storm had already blanketed much of the mountain west and drenched Southern California with rain.

AP

Commuters on Interstate 215 near Parleys Canyon sit in stalled traffic during the morning snow storm in Salt Lake County, Tuesday. Ice was the problem Tuesday morning in Oklahoma, where Interstate 40 was closed for about 25 miles between Clinton and Elk City. Mitch Dodson, a trucker hauling soda pop

out of Durango, Colo., to Virginia, was waylaid at the Travel America plaza near the town of Sayre in western Oklahoma. “It’s just a sheet of ice from Amarillo to here,”

Dodson said. “It’s a disaster.” With travel likely to get worse, officials were warning residents in parts of the west and Midwest to stay close to home.

WASHINGTON (AP) – The refurbished Hubble Space Telescope has spotted the oldest galaxies yet, scientists reported Tuesday. A newly installed wide field camera on Hubble this summer captured several thousand neverbefore-seen galaxies, which were formed 600 million years after the Big Bang. Scientists believe that massive explosion led to the creation of the universe. The galaxies are about 13 billion light years away. Each light year is

about 6 trillion miles. The image was taken in a region of space that Hubble scanned in 2004. Since the new camera has a near-infared channel, it allows the orbiting telescope to peer deeper into the universe and spot distant galaxies. The camera was installed in May by NASA spacewalking astronauts as part of a mission to upgrade and repair the aging telescope. Hubble is a collaboration between NASA and the European Space Agency.

Taking it low and slow in the kitchen this holiday season BY PERVAIZ SHALLWANI FOR THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

T

his holiday season, taking it slow in the kitchen could spare you some stress and save you some cash. If you’re serving up a meaty holiday feast, consider skipping pricey – and more easily overcooked – steaks, chops and tenderloins. Instead, consider a low and slow roast of a cheaper cut, such as the shoulders, legs and ribs. Turning those tougher meats into succulent, memorable meals re-

This long, low-temperature roast breaks down fat, muscle and cartilage, resulting in tender meat that falls from the bone and a thick pan sauce. quires some patience. But in return there is plenty of down time for all that other holiday revelry and a near foolproof holiday dinner that doesn’t compromise on flavor. “I cook with roasts all the time because they are inexpensive and if you know how to cook them right, they are extremely flavorful,” says Tanya Steel, editor-in-chief of Epicurious.com. “The most important thing is that it’s going to take longer to cook,” she says. “But personally I think the outcome is a lot more exciting. It’s more flavorful and you can slice them table-side.”

about $30, at least half of what it would cost for a typical roast. Much larger than their pork counterparts, short ribs are considered a second or third cut, terms that refer to heavily worked (which translates to tough) muscles on the animals they are cut from. Ribs typically come in 6- to 8-inch portions. Ask the butcher to cut the ribs into 2-inch serving portions, also called an “English cut.” For the best results, short ribs must be cooked for 21⁄2 hours or longer at 250 F to 300 F. This long, low-temperature roast breaks down fat, muscle and cartilage, resulting in tender meat that falls from the bone and a thick pan sauce. Don’t be tempted to crank up the heat to speed things along, says Stephen Stryjewski, chef and owner of Cochon restaurant in New Orleans. “It won’t just be chewy, but it will also be tough because it is all dry on the outside,” he says. The same approach also can be used with steak tips, pork or lamb shoulder, lamb shanks and brisket, one of the most popular roasts during holidays. The cooking temperature is about the same, but timing will vary by the size of the cut.

THE MARINADE

This step is optional, but bathing the meat in a tasty solution of salt, acid and spice helps begin the cooking process by breaking down muscle enzymes that make the meat tough while also infusing it with flavor. This can be as simple as a brine of salt, water and sugar; a more trendy marinade of coffee and onions; a classic mix of red wine, leeks, salt and pepper; or a sweet, salty, spicy mix of soy sauce, brown sugar and Sichuan THE MEAT Steel cooks short ribs or peppercorns. “You want to marinate beef ribs almost every holiday dinner. She typically the meat from two to 24 hours using a marinade cooks for 13 or 14 people that has an acid in it with and meaty ribs for that many people typically cost a food enzyme like an

Are you a Type A personality? Or a Type H? You know, someone who overachieves, racks her brain and tests her shopping stamina in an effort to get just the right holiday gift for every person on her list. Holiday shopping can be stressful. Or it can be playful. But, remember. One size doesn’t fit all, so food is always a safe bet. Where to start? Here’s a list according to some favorite foodie types.

JULIA CHILD WANNABE The runaway success of “Julie & Julia” starring Meryl Streep and Amy Adams has made cooking classes with a French theme hot commodities. Since the movie’s release in August, cooking teacher and cookbook author Karen Adler of Kansas City, Mo., has taught almost a dozen classes.

This photo shows a slow-cooked roast, which can help lower kitchen stress during this busy time of year. apricot,” Steel says. “After 24 hours, the acids and the enzymes in the marinade break down the meat too much and make the meat mushy.” Simply combine the ingredients for the marinade in a deep pot or zipclose bag, submerge the meat, then refrigerate. Once the ribs are marinated, discard the marinade or reserve for a sauce. If using as a sauce, be sure to boil for five minutes to kill off any bacteria from the raw meat.

THE ROAST Once the meat is marinated, there are two ways of thinking here. The exterior of the meat can be browned on top of the stove, then

slowly roasted with vegetables and a spice rub at about 250 F. Or it can be browned, then braised in liquid and seasonings at a bare simmer (about 250 F to 300 F) until the meat is fork-tender. “With the cooking liquid, the meat sucks in all that flavor,” says chef Paul Kahan of Chicago. “And if the liquid is well salted, the meat is in the end.” The flavor combinations are only limited by the imagination. Onions, carrots and leaks with garlic salt, pepper and red wine is pretty classic. Soaked chickpeas, russet potatoes, Thai red curry paste, garlic, onion and beer lends a South Asian flavor. Just be sure that any

vegetables are large (2inch chunks are ideal), or they will become mush by the time the meat is ready. To do a simple braise, first brown the meat, then remove it from the pan and brown the vegetables. Deglaze the pan with liquid, then return everything to the pan. Fill about two-thirds with liquid and cover tightly with foil. Place in the oven and take a peak every 45 minutes, turning the meat and making sure the liquid is not boiling.

BRIDGE

Wednesday, Dec. 9, 2009 CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Jakob Dylan, 40; Allison Smith, 40; Donny Osmond, 52; Beau Bridges, 68 HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Don’t leave anything to chance this year. Overreacting to emotional issues or people will cause problems not easily solved. Look for new ways to make extra cash. Reinvent what you have to offer. A serious partnership can help you out financially. Your numbers are 5, 13, 17, 20, 34, 38, 44 ARIES (March 21-April 19): You may feel like being generous but, this time, you should ask everyone to pitch in and help rather than taking on a burden all by yourself. You can pull things together and oversee what needs to be done without compromising your personal and professional obligations. ★★★ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Question your motives before you start telling everyone what you plan to do. A power struggle is the last thing you need when there is so much at stake. Pressure and progress will go hand-in-hand. ★★★★★ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Being frugal is the answer to moving ahead. Doing something for less will attract attention and potential business. A partnership can form but it must be based on equality. Make romantic plans for two. ★★ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Calm down before you end up in a feud that ruins a relationship you cherish. Meddling or making false accusations may be tempting but, in the end, you will be the one blamed. Keep your personal and professional lives separate. ★★ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You should be making plans for the future that include a little fun and entertainment. Updating your look or improving your lifestyle will play out satisfactorily. The choices you make today don’t have to exclude anything or anyone. ★★★★ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t put up with someone trying to make decisions for you. Take matters into your own hands and stand up for your concerns. Back away from anyone giving you an ultimatum. You can be the leader or the follower – the choice is yours. ★★★ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Keep things simple if you want to avoid emotional turmoil. The less running about you have to do, the better your time will be spent. Don’t limit what you can do because you don’t want to ask for help. ★★★ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Problems with elders in the family will mount if you don’t clear up a misunderstanding. You cannot trust what you are told or base what you do on what others want. Personal information must be kept a secret or someone will use it against you. ★★★★ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don’t make unpredictable moves because you are upset or don’t like what someone else is doing. Let whatever situation is bothering you play out. You are in a much better position than you realize. ★★ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): There is plenty to do before the year comes to a close with regard to your finances and your future plans. There will be an opportunity to lower your overhead if you are quick to respond to an offer made. ★★★★★ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You’ll be eager to take action when it comes to a personal relationship. Don’t let an emotional ploy stop you from following through with your plans. You have to satisfy your own needs before you can consider helping others. ★★★ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Research will pay off. Ask questions if you don’t fully understand what’s expected of you. Before signing a contract or taking on a new challenge, consider if it’s worth your while. Don’t let uncertainty in an emotional relationship affect your decision. ★★★

TRIBUNE MEDIA SERVICES

I continue a series on the “trump promotion.” Defenders are apt to dismiss their chances of winning extra tricks in trumps – a suit declarer has claimed as his own – but they may have no other chance to beat the contract. In today’s deal, the defense led three rounds of hearts, and South ruffed with the ten of trumps. West overruffed with his queen and shifted to a club, but South won and cashed the A-K of trumps. When East’s jack fell, South drew West’s last trump and claimed.

DAILY QUESTION HIGH TRUMP A principle of the “trump promotion” is that it’s seldom right to overruff with a high trump you’re sure to get in any case. (You let declarer force out your high trump, which he will be obliged to do anyway.) If you discard, your intermediate spot cards may be promoted. North could have made 6NT, but West’s defense handed South a hopeless game. West must let South’s ten of trumps win. If South takes the A-K next (drawing East’s J-8 but crashing dummy’s 7-6), West wins two tricks with his Q-5 behind South’s 9-4.

You hold: S A K 10 9 4 H 8 2 D Q 5 C A Q J 5. You open one spade, your partner responds 1NT, you bid two clubs and he raises to three clubs. What do you say? ANSWER: Although partner’s strength is limited to nine points, you might make five clubs if he holds 6 5, 5 4 3, A J 7, K 9 6 4 2 or four spades if he has Q 2, 5 4, A 8 7 2, K 9 6 4 2. I’d pass if not vulnerable, but if vulnerable, with more to gain, I’d try three spades or four clubs. North dealer N-S 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.
