Eight shopping days left Retailers expect heavy traffic through Christmas Eve BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – Local retailers said traffic was surging through their stores as the Christmas shopping season nears its end, and sales are about the same as last year. Last week alone, national holiday sales rose 1.1 percent, according to ShopperTrak RCT Corp., a Chicago research firm that DON DAVIS JR. | HPE tracked sales at more than 50,000 stores. AnSi Bell took granddaughter Elizabeth Pierce to select her other research firm, comScore, reported a 4 Christmas gift at Target. She is visiting from Tennessee percent increase in online sales last week. “I would say sales are comparable to for the holidays.


last year,” said Joe Harmon, sales floor executive at Target at 1050 Mall Loop Road. “We’d like to be more positive in sales, but with the way the economy is, I guess comparable is always good.” Harmon said navigation systems and flat-screen televisions were selling out once the items went on sale. Jason Scott, manager of Belk at Oak Hollow, said he had noticed a new consumer trend this shopping season - buying for one’s self. “Because shoppers haven’t spent money during the first part of the year or over the summer, I think they are spending some on themselves that they haven’t in the past,” he said. The weekend of Dec. 18-20 is the busiest shopping weekend of the year after the

Civitans brighten Christmas for needy kids BY DARRICK IGNASIAK ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

SILVER VALLEY – With more families requesting help this year than ever before, the Silver Valley Civitan Club is looking for some help for its annual project of giving families a Christmas. “Every year we see more and more need – especially this year,” said Gary Arnold, former club president. “This year will be

the greatest ever we have seen in the 43 years.” In 1966, Project Santa Claus was inspired by Arnold’s late father, Sam Arnold, and Tony Jarrell, when the two and many others were surprised to see some of the living conditions in Davidson County. The program, which helped more than 50 families last year, has continued ever since. “I think a number of them would not have a Christmas

without us,” Arnold said. “They might not have a decent Christmas dinner or would not have the proper clothing to wear to school – especially here in the winter, and the kids would not have toys at all.” As part of Project Santa Claus, members of the Silver Valley Civitan Club on Christmas Eve will deliver toys, clothing and food to 63 families. Clothing and toys will be distributed to at least 112 children in 50

families, which is up from 98 youngsters served last year. “Last year was a record year, and now this year it has increased again,” Arnold said. “Basically, the economy has hit so many people. So many more people are out of work or on short time if they are working. A number of people who are on the list this year may have been on it in the past, but last year they were not, but now be-

cause times are tough they are back on it.” Arnold said cash contributions for the project have totaled about $1,600. The Silver Valley Civitan Club still needs additional funds for a shopping trip set for Friday. Cash contributions, which will help the club buy food, clothing and toys, can be made by contacting Harold Parrish at 472-2379. | 888-3657

Rape, kidnapping trial ends in acquittal BY PAT KIMBROUGH ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – A man accused of sexually assaulting a woman in a drug-related dispute in southeast High Point has been found not guilty by a jury. Leroy Ted Shankle, 52, was acquitted on charges of first-degree rape and first-degree kidnapping in an alleged attack near E. Green Drive on March 29, 2008. Prosecutors claimed Shankle accosted the alleged victim at a convenience store because he believed

she had stolen crack cocaine from him. Shankle was accused of grabbing the woman by the hair, taking her across E. Green Drive to a Shankle shed in a secluded area and raping her. The woman identified Shankle as her suspected attacker and testified against him. Vikram Kapil, a Greensboro attorney who represented Shankle, argued that her identification of his client was unreliable because she had been using

cocaine and drinking alcohol prior to the incident. There was forensic evidence collected from the scene “but it appeared the state had not tested that evidence,” Kapil said. The state did not have DNA evidence in the case, but the woman had injuries indicating she was sexually assaulted, and she was consistent in her account of what happened when questioned by police, medical personnel and in her testimony, prosecutors said. The state’s case included testimony from a Guilford County Jail inmate who claimed Shankle had


confessed to the alleged rape while incarcerated awaiting trial. Kapil argued that the inmate, who faces various fraud-related charges, testified in an effort to curry favor with prosecutors in the hopes of lighter punishment. He said he wasn’t sure how much weight the jury may have attached to this or any other issues in the trial. “I don’t know what their deliberations were,” Kapil said. “The state had a strong case.” | 888-3531

High Point police are seeking the following suspects:


New Hanover County Sheriff detectives remain on the scene in Wilmington Tuesday, investigating the death of an elderly woman who is believed to have passed away in the spring of this year.

Family kept corpse of NC woman in bed for months WILMINGTON (AP) – Relatives of an elderly North Carolina woman kept her corpse in their home for months, until authorities discovered the woman’s body this week, and a prosecutor said Wednesday that one of the family members will face a criminal charge. “There is no question it was known to the family and should have been communicated to law enforcement,” said New Hanover County District Attorney Benjamin R. David. “This is not tolerated under North Carolina law and it is not tolerated by this law enforcement community.” David said a member of the family would be charged with failure to report a death, which is a lowlevel felony in North Carolina. He declined to identify the relative being charged, referring questions to the local sheriff’s office, which could not be reached for comment after hours.

The sheriff’s department Web site later listed the arrest of Amy Blanche Stewart, a 47-year-old resident of the same home in this coastal North Carolina city. It was not immediately clear her relationship to the dead woman and the Web site did not specify a charge against her. The family did not return a message left seeking comment Wednesday evening. The allegations come a day after police said a 911 caller reported that Blanche Matilda Roth was unconscious and not breathing. They found Roth’s body in her bed. Police said Roth likely died in May, before her 88th birthday in September. New Hanover County Deputy Charles Smith said caretakers had been going in and out of the house on a quiet cul-de-sac on a daily basis. He would not specify if the caretakers were family members but said they were not nurses.

Neighbors said Roth’s family had been living in the house with her and continued to go on as normal after Roth’s reported death. A woman who answered the door at the home Wednesday morning refused to comment. David said an autopsy was completed Wednesday but he declined to reveal its results. He did not rule out additional charges for abetting concealment of a death, a misdemeanor. He also said investigators were looking into Roth’s financial records. Smith said the residence was very well kept. He said police hadn’t received any calls requesting checks on Roth’s welfare. “They were quiet and stayed to themselves all the time,” neighbor Ray Taylor, 72, said of the home’s residents. Martin Pedersen, another neighbor, said he had no idea Roth had died.

CVB reports further decline in tourism BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – The High Point Convention and Visitors bureau reported a decline in revenue for the fifth consecutive month since the beginning of its fiscal year in July at its meeting on Wednesday. Sales declined 10 percent last month compared to November 2008, the bureau reported. The bureau’s deficit for the year stands at about $72,000.

Treasurer Chris Greene said the 10 percent decline was less severe than declines in recent months such as August, when sales declined 18 percent. “We are operating with a lot less money than in years past and are hopefully doing an equal or better job without those funds,” she said. The bureau, which receives its funds through the hotel room occupancy tax, approved a $2,000 event booking incentive for the Southeastern

Regional Ballet Association in May 2010. The bureau estimates the event will bring 1,200 people to High Point with an estimated economic impact of $607,683. Marva Wells, sales manager for the bureau, said major leads for future events had been issued last month, including a lead for the North Carolina Society of Medical Assistants Regional Seminar. The event, which took place in High Point in past years, would bring 150

people to the city with 55 total hotel room nights. A lead for boys and girls tournaments for The Score Showcase also was issued, and the events would bring a combined 1,500 people to the city with 1,020 total room nights in July 2010. “Some of these groups that have been here in the past, it’s time for them to rotate locations,” Wells said. “Slowly but surely, they are beginning to travel again.”| 888-3617

City requires firefighters at candle services HOMEWOOD, Ala. (AP) – Churches in an Alabama city better count on a few extra guests at Christmas Eve candlelight ceremonies. The Birmingham suburb of Homewood requires a permit and four off-duty firefighters to attend any ser-

vice where candles are passed out to parishioners. Fire Chief John Bresnan says the rule has been in place for 10 years, but many churches didn’t know about it. Pastor Sid Burgess of Edgewood Presbyterian Church says rule “does seem like overkill” and

the cost of up to $400 to hire firefighters can be a lot for a small church. The rule doesn’t apply if ministers and other church leaders are the only ones handling the flames. The fire chief says the rule is all about ensuring safety in crowded rooms with open flames.

• Robert James Ratliff, 32, 5 feet, 6 inches tall, 160 pounds, wanted for grand jury indictment for assault inflicting serious bodily injury. • Antonio Branae Baskins, 24, 6 feet tall, 165 pounds, wanted for grand jury indictment for habitual felon and common law robbery. • Jenitta Tichelle Grace, 28, 5 feet tall, 225 pounds, wanted for grand jury indictment for conspiring to sell/ deliver cocaine and maintaining a dwelling for drugs. • David Leon Peoples Jr., 36, 5 feet, 9 inches tall, 235 pounds, wanted for felony failure to appear. • Archia Cosmacarcey White, 27, 5 feet, 9 inches tall, 180 pounds, wanted for grand jury indictment for felony sell/deliver cocaine. • Isaac Levon Wilson, 33, 6 feet, 2 inches tall, 200 pounds, wanted for grand jury indictment for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. • Cornelius Tremayne Goldston, 26, 5 feet, 9 inches tall, 225 pounds, wanted for grand jury indictment for habitual felon. • Deborah Ann Slade, 52, 5 feet, 8 inches tall, 200 pounds, wanted for identity theft.

DAVIDSON COUNTY – The Davidson County Sheriff’s Office has charged an Archdale man with a break-in after a witness caught him in the act of allegedly stealing scrap metal. According to a sheriff’s office press release, deputies received a report of a subject who had broken into an outbuilding located at 3728 Old Greensboro Road.

Iran tests missile, stoking tensions with West TEHRAN, Iran – Iran on Wednesday test fired an upgraded version of an advanced missile capable of hitting Israel and parts of Europe, an apparent show of strength aimed at discouraging attacks on its nuclear facilities. The test of the medium-range Sajjil-2 fueled calls for tougher sanctions against Tehran, which has resisted U.N. demands that it rein in its nuclear ambitions. Iran touted the launch as a success, proving it can deter any U.S. or Israeli military strike.

Terror monitor: Tape of captured US soldier due KABUL – The Taliban have announced they will release a new video of a U.S. soldier captured in Afghanistan, a U.S.-based terrorism monitoring group said Wednesday. SITE Intelligence Group said the media arm of the Afghan Taliban made the announcement Wednesday on their Web site. The Taliban did not name the American. The only U.S. soldier known to be in captivity is Pfc. Bowe Bergdahl of Hailey, Idaho, who disappeared more than five months ago in Afghanistan.

Al-Maliki implicates security in Baghdad blasts BAGHDAD – Dozens of suspected plotters in last week’s deadly suicide bombings that killed 127 people in Baghdad were linked to security forces, Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki said Wednesday. The revelation came as the Shiite prime minister, who is running for re-election in March, sought to assure Iraqis that he has security under control. But repeated security lapses attracted withering criticism from the Sunni vice president who hinted that the prime minister should resign.

Pakistani court deals president big blow ISLAMABAD – Pakistan’s top court struck down an amnesty Wednesday that had protected U.S.-allied President Asif Ali Zardari from corruption charges, setting the stage for political turmoil at a time when America seeks a united front against militants along the Afghan border. The ruling is a major blow to the desperately unpopular Zardari and could mark the beginning of his downfall, analysts said.

Climate talks deadlocked COPENHAGEN (AP) – The 10-day-old climate talks ran into disputes and paralysis as they entered a critical stage Wednesday, just two days before President Barack Obama and more than 100 other national leaders hope to sign a historic agreement to fight global warming. Poorer nations stalled the talks in resistance to

what they saw as efforts by the rich to impose decisions falling short of strong commitments to reduce greenhouse gases and to help those countries hurt by climate change. Conference observers said, however, that negotiators still had time to reach agreements. Outside the meeting site in Copenhagen’s sub-


urbs, police fired pepper spray and beat protesters with batons as hundreds of demonstrators sought to disrupt the 193-nation conference, the latest ac-

tion in days of demonstrations to demand “climate justice� – firm steps to combat global warming. Police said 260 protesters were detained.

Dr. Luiz Cesar Soltoski said surgeons hope to remove most of the needles but because some are stuck in his lungs, they have to wait until the childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s breathing improves. The boyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother told police she doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how the needles got inside her son, but police have opened an investigation.

Poll: Gains for Obama, not his Afghan plans WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Americans like seeing President Barack Obama finally tackle Afghanistan â&#x20AC;&#x201C; even if most donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t support his plans.

Mother lost custody same day as 4 killings SANTA ANA, Calif. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A court commissioner had tentatively ordered a Houston woman to relinquish temporary custody of her two young children to her ex-husbandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sister hours before the family was killed in a murder suicide, an attorney said Wednesday. Authorities responding to a 911 call in an upscale, gated community in San Clemente found 38-yearold Elizabeth Fontaine; her mother, 67-year-old Bonnie Hoult; and daughters 4-year-old Catherine and 2-year-old Julia shot dead Monday afternoon in an apparent murder suicide.

HPU students are full participants in city’s life My classmates and I were hurt by Ruth Sedon’s letter to the editor Dec. 4 (Your View, “Here’s a solution for mall woes and HPU’s needs”). Her comments were a slap in the face. I don’t know where she got the information that allowed her to paint all of us with one wide stroke of her brush. High Point University students have been a part of this neighborhood and city for 85 years. We contributed 30,000-plus volunteer hours to local nonprofit organizations in 2009 – virtually every nonprofit organization in town. We come from all over the country and make High Point our home. Some in this city, it sounds, wish the university would just close down. Our fraternities’ and sororities’ service projects include Red Cross blood drives, funding for Open Door Ministries, Breast Cancer Awareness, Push America (Pi Kappa Phi’s National Disabilities’ Foundation), The American Cancer Society, Diabetes Research, The Prevention of Child abuse, United Way, and others. We have raised tens of thousands to help all kind of High Point causes. I am so proud that the HPU family increased its giving to the United Way from $30,000 to $120,000 in only four years. Our Student Government Association conducted several fundraising events this fall to help United Way. We shop and dine at the local stores and restaurants every day. The university has enabled our student passport cards to be used as a debit card at over 40 local businesses and each week other businesses are added to the list. We buy clothes, dine, buy gas, get



our cars repaired and go to the movies, etc., across the city. Our parents stay in hotel rooms when they visit. The university’s buses take us to shopping areas across the city and even to the mall regularly. High Point University is a wonderful institution, and I am so very proud to be the student body president at HPU. ANDREW REALON High Point

why they are pushing Christmas on us so early? What good can come from this? Their reason for pushing Christmas? It’s “the” major consumer event of the year.

ometimes we seem like people on a pleasure boat drifting down the Niagara river, unaware that there are waterfalls up ahead. I don’t know what people think is going to happen when a nation that already sponsors international terrorism has nuclear bombs to give to terrorists around the world. Since this is an era when many people are concerned about “fairness” and “social justice,” what is your “fair share” of what someone else has worked for? Here is a math problem for you: Assume that the legislation establishing government control of medical care is passed and that it “brings down the cost of medical care.” You pay $500 a year less for your medical care, but the new costs put on employers is passed on to consumers, so that you pay $300 a year more for groceries and $200 a year more for gasoline, while the new mandates put on insurance companies raise your premiums by $300 a year, how much money have you saved? I seldom read fiction – and I tend to regard autobiographies as fiction. In response to news of President Obama receiving the Nobel Prize for peace, an email from a reader recalled a black classmate’s comments upon graduating from high school many years ago. When asked to list the advantages and disadvantages of being black, the black student facetiously listed as an advantage “being praised for infinitesimal accomplishments.” Many colleges claim that they develop “leaders.” All too often, that means turning out graduates who cannot feel fulfilled unless they are telling other people what to do. There are already too many people like that, and they are a menace to everyone else’s freedom. Some people are so busy being clever that they don’t have time enough to be wise. No one likes to admit having been played for a fool. So it will probably take a mushroom cloud over some American city before some Obama supporters wake up. Even so, the true believers among the survivors will probably say that this was all George Bush’s fault. Stepping beyond your competence can be

like stepping off a cliff. Too many people with brilliance and talent within some field do not realize how ignorant – or, worse yet, misinformed – they are when talking like philosopher-kings about other things. OPINION There has probably never before been as drastic a Thomas decline in the quality of Sowell vice presidents as there has ■■■ been when Dick Cheney was replaced by Joe Biden. Yet the New York Times is lionizing Biden as a wise counselor to President Obama. When you support the liberal agenda, that makes you brilliant ex-officio in the media, whether or not you are vice president – and whether or not you have even common sense. Government pressures on mortgage lenders to accept less than the full amount they are owed may win votes for politicians, since there are far more borrowers than lenders. But how much future lending can be expected when the lenders know that politicians are ready to intervene at any time to prevent them from getting their money back? Some people think that the Obama administration is going to get rid of Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner, making him the scapegoat for its economics failures. This would be consistent with the president’s acting as if the people under him are not carrying out his policies. But if they get rid of Geithner too early, that will not help if things still do not get better after he is gone and before the 2010 elections.

Some random thoughts on the passing scene

It’s time for overlay district action S he High Point City Council and city planning and zoning officials are making this Market Overlay District matter much more complicated and much more controversial than it should be. Those officials have held numerous meetings and hearings during the past year, and still there won’t be a decision on the issue until sometime next year after more review and discussion – some public and some likely in private. Such machinating gives the impression to people who live here and to those who come here during the High Point Market that community leaders don’t have a clue about what they’re doing or either are trying to slide something by them. It is past time that City Council get on with drawing appropriate lines for the overlay district (lines we suggested a few weeks ago would work just fine) and approving creation of the district. That action is needed now to set the stage for continued activity in the market showroom district and to spur ideas for developing areas adjoining the market district. Areas surrounding the Market Overlay District will be prime locations for business ventures that have the potential to benefit marketgoers and also bring people back to the center city area when home furnishings markets are not in session. Entertainment venues, restaurants, other commercial establishments, arts and historical attractions, office developments and even urban housing are types of developments that can be successful if revitalization plans are properly prepared and carried out with the intent of stimulating activity downtown year-round. Certainly, the Market Overlay District matter is important to the future of High Point and shouldn’t be taken lightly. But the future begins today, so it’s time to get on with it.

because we don’t do those things, that much. So there’s a little stealing, killing, lying and coveting that happens in our Christian world, maybe a little too much. Maybe Christmas could use a stimulus package and be pushed even earlier! Here’s my idea: Immediately after Christmas we start again. For the entire year, the radio stations play holiday music 24/7 and the stores keep the festive displays up. Maybe if they do that, we’ll have more time to learn the teachings of Christ Jesus. Imagine a world constantly celebrating Christmas. That should make real good Christians out of all of us. Maybe pushing Christmas early is a good idea. Maybe good can come from this! Merry Christmas.

ever that Almighty God wants a personal relationship with people â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with me. In fact, this Christmas season confirms that God LESSONS goes ahead of us LEARNED in love and care, always looking to Paula make everything Williams that happens in â&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  our lives work together for good when we love Him. That first Christmas is a perfect illustration of His going ahead of us. Two thousand years ago, He initiated His rescue plan for mankind â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the plan formulated before He even spoke into being that first ray of light or breathed out that first star. Before the foundation of the world, God knew we would need a Savior and He formulated a perfect plan to send the perfect sacrifice. There are many things I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand about God, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OK. In fact, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perfectly normal because His thoughts are higher than my thoughts, His ways are higher than my ways, and He is on an altogether different time table than I am. But this much I do know: the birth of Christ was an intentional act of a loving God to go ahead of us â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to send the perfect Lamb of God to take away the sins of the world. And because I have placed my faith and trust in Him, He has given to me and to all who believe the power to become the sons and daughters of God! The fact that the Almighty God of the universe loves me that much is plenty of reason for hope in the future. It is my prayer that His coming brings hope to your heart this holiday season as well. And when we get to 2010, how comforting to know that He will already be there ahead of us.

tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the Christmas season in full swing, and I am looking at it rather differently this year. That is because a video I recently viewed just blew up my view of God. Just a few weeks ago, our church viewed the â&#x20AC;&#x153;How Great Is Our Godâ&#x20AC;? video by Louie Giglio. If you have never heard of Giglio or never seen one of his videos, I challenge to find him on the Internet (it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be difficult), sit back and watch. Have you looked up on a clear night lately? I know that I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do that enough. I get stuck on the mundane details of my personal affairs and forget how enormous Almighty God truly is. I forget that He is beyond anything we could possibly dream of or imagine. After all, Psalms 33:6 says: â&#x20AC;&#x153;By the word of the Lord were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.â&#x20AC;? Giglio said God spoke light into existence and it came out of His mouth traveling at 186,000 miles per second. In fact, miles are useless when it comes to God. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because a light year is 5.88 trillion miles, and many other galaxies lie thousands of light years away from our own planet. Wow! But look at that verse again. Giglio calls God a â&#x20AC;&#x153;star breather!â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right â&#x20AC;&#x201C; those giant balls of light were made simply by the breath of His mouth! You really must watch the video to hear some of the details of the stars beyond our own galaxy. After careful consideration of the greatness of God, my praying has changed. I am trying to avoid the laundry list of things I want God to do â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or not to do! Instead, I am trying to focus on worshiping who He is. I am trying to do more listening than talking, too! The beauty of beginning to grasp how great God is includes the dawning that if He can hold the stars and galaxies in place, then He is truly able to hold on to us. And I am more amazed than

Gifts of warmth School’s ‘Giving Tree’ adorned with clothes for needy BY DARRICK IGNASIAK ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

TRINITY – Students at Hopewell Elementary have come together to decorate one tree that doesn’t have typical ornaments. As part of the school’s annual “Giving Tree” program, the school’s faculty asked students to bring in scarves, gloves, mittens, toboggan caps and socks for the less fortunate. The items, which have been sprucing up a tree near the school’s front office, will be delivered to a women’s shelter in High Point today. “It’s a project that we’ve done for several years,” said Dr. Angele Johnson, a Hopewell Elementary guidance counselor. “We talk to the children about caring for others. We talk about our needs as opposed to our wants, and that there are so many people who need things opposed to all the things we want.” With the help of the Hopewell Elementary stuDON DAVIS JR. | HPE dent council, students startMalinda Slone and Steven Davis admire the “Giving Tree,” which is decorated with ed collecting items for the Giving Tree in November. clothing, at Hopewell Elementary Scool.

This Christmas, Hopewell Elementary grade levels also adopted families to help with toys. “Earlier on, we made posters so people would know about (the Giving Tree) because not everybody comes in the front hall,” said Benjamin Perez, a fifth-grade student and member of the student council. “I think it’s a good idea because some people don’t have enough money to buy gloves and other warm things for the winter. This gives them what they need.” Kaitlyn King, Steven Davis and Malinda Slone, all fifthgraders and members of the student council, said they’ve learned the lesson of helping others in need. “It’s like giving back to the community, which they have done for you,” King said. “It’s just like an interesting thing we do every year. It helps kids and families in need that need scarves and gloves for the winter that we already have. It’s like we have them, but they don’t. There is no reason for them to freeze.”

Bill includes $3 million for region BY PAUL B. JOHNSON ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

TRIAD – The omnibus federal spending bill headed to President Barack Obama for his approval includes about $3 million for a variety of projects in the region, Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan’s office reports. The appropriations include money for law enforcement, health care and education. “In this tough economy, these projects will spur job growth and economic investment across the state of North Carolina,” the first-year sena-

tor from Greensboro said in a statement. The appropriations include $1 million for equipment at the Joint Firearms Training Facility in Winston-Salem and $450,000 for the Gang and Delinquency Prevention Initiative at the Forsyth County Youth Detention Center. Several area colleges and schools will receive funding. The Center for Women’s Entrepreneurship at Bennett College was appropriated $150,000, while the Center for Design Innovation at the North Carolina School of the Arts/Winston-Sa-

lem State University received $100,000, Hagan’s office reports. Other appropriations include $100,000 for Winston-Salem State University’s blood pressure and obesity screening programs and $125,000 for North Carolina A&T State University’s development of nurse training programs. The omnibus spending bill was passed in the House and Senate virtually along party lines, with Democrats supporting the legislation and Republicans opposing it. | 888-3528

Annual Cheer Fund nears $20,000 ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

The 2009 Christmas Cheer Fund has received $2,900 today. That brings the total in donations to $19,459. 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 children 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. Today’s donors are:

It was through his leadership that the first community watch was started in Sedalia, as well as a traffic light installed at a main intersection in that town. In 2005, he shared his personal story with the Voices of Civil Rights project, and was selected to be part of the largest collection of accounts of the Civil Rights movement. The permanent collection is now in the Library of Congress in Washington, DC. Henry was preceded in death by his first and second wives, Thelma and Clara, and a daughter, Peggy McDonald. Survivors include his wife, Bessie White Blackmon of the home; son, Thomas (Barbara) Blackmon of Greensboro; four grandchildren, Steve (Yvonne) McDonald, Darrell (Tina) Blackmon, and Thomas A.

A message left for Cheshire seeking more information wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t immediately returned.

Elfâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s helpful hints ease kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; first visit to santa D

ear Abby: Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that time of year again when parents take their kids to see Santa. As a professional Santaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s helper for many years, may I offer some suggestions? Let your children approach Santa on their own. Do not force your child to sit on Santaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lap. Santa has been seen in books and on TV, but he is now real, big and loud. That can be scary to a child. If he or she wants to stand at a distance and talk to Santa, that is OK. Sometimes just holding the child and standing next to Santa is all it takes for a child to warm up to the idea of sitting on his lap. If your little one is upset and you want a picture with Santa, have someone else snap the photo while you stand by your child. Let Santa talk to your children while you hold their hands. Santa (if any good) will pace the visit and stop it if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taking too long. If children are afraid, do not let Santa grab at them to put them on his lap. That will only make the problem worse. I hope this helps to make the visit easier. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Santaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Helper in Central Illinois Dear Santaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Helper: Ho-ho-ho! Thank you for being ABBYâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s helper today. I hope parents will take your sound suggestions to heart when introducing their little ones to the jolly man

in the red suit. Dear Abby: Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a retired waitress who ADVICE worked for years in Dear a family Abby restaurant. â&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  Many elderly people would come in alone, and I could see they were hungry for conversation as well as food, so Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d talk to them as much as possible. As the restaurant became more crowded, I had less time to chat, so I set up a table for four and asked the seniors if they might like to sit at the â&#x20AC;&#x153;senior table.â&#x20AC;? So many of the customers said yes that it turned into a table for 12! It would be great if restaurants would set up senior tables so everyone could have a dinner partner if they wanted to visit. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a great way to make new friends. Now that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a senior myself I notice a lot of us sit alone, watching families enjoy being together. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Kathy in Bremerton, Wash. Dear Kathy: Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a sweet and compassionate woman.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crucial to teach core values to children

kids feeding the homeless, serving the poor, loving the unlovable and GIVING 101 giving back to Paul our comLessard munity. â&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  Perhaps the most impacting aspect of these experiences was simply allowing them to see the extent of the need in our world and then allowing them to experience the joy that invariably follows an act of giving. You can call this philanthropy, but I have always chosen to think of it as soul building. You see, giving exercises and builds up the most important muscle of all, our hearts. As we move into this Christmas season, why donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you consider doing some soul building of your own. It truly is the gift that keeps on giving.

The Fire Academy at Guilford Technical Community College held its 17th graduation ceremony Friday on the Jamestown campus. Nineteen cadets graduated, and most already are connected to fire departments in central North Carolina.

worry about the state of our children in the world today. Like generations past, I am alarmed by the systematic degradation of the values and principles that have made us a great nation under God. Even the ancient Greek philosopher Socrates had this to say about the youth of his time: â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have bad manners, contempt for authority, they show disrespect for their elders. â&#x20AC;Ś They no longer rise when elders enter the room. They contradict their parents, chatter before company, and are tyrants over their teachers.â&#x20AC;? Sounds familiar doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it? While I was not aware at the time that my son was displaying characteristics of ancient Greek children, there were days during his preteen, eighth-grade year when I was ready to send him back to that era. It seems that every generation does indeed fight the same battle to discover the most effective way to pass on those character traits they deem to be of value. If we are to teach our children core values, we must first understand that we are swimming against the social current. In my family, we found that the most effective way to teach our children about the values we held dear â&#x20AC;&#x201C; such as faith, integrity, generosity and servant leadership â&#x20AC;&#x201C; was to consistently model them. Early on we had our

Surgery available for heartburn when medicines fail


ear Dr. Donohue: My husband has gastric reflux very bad. He had tried many procedures and all the pills, but they don’t work for him. He is now on Nexium. Can surgery be done? – F.S.


GERD – gastroesophageal reflux disease, popularly called heartburn – is the upward shooting of digestive juices and acid from the stomach into the esophagus, where it leads to pain. Your husband may have tried these maneuvers, but I’ll mention them for others. Elevating the head of the bed by putting 6- or 8-inch blocks under the bedposts keeps stomach juices in the stomach during the night. If he smokes, he has to stop. He needs to eliminate fried and fatty foods, citrus fruits and juices, tomatoes and tomato products, onions, garlic, caffeinated beverages, chocolates, mints and spicy foods. In place of three large meals, smaller and more-frequent meals can cut down reflux. Nexium is one of the five proton pump inhibitors, the most powerful suppressors of acid production. When these medicines fail to control reflux, then other conditions ought to be considered. If other conditions can’t be found, then surgery could be the answer. The Nissen fundoplication is one of the standard operations for GERD. The topmost part of the stomach is snugly wrapped around the lowermost part of the esophagus to create a barrier to the upward















spurting of stomach juices. The operation often can be done with the aid of a scope HEALTH passed through a Dr. Paul small inciDonohue sion in the ■■■ abdominal skin and another small incision for the necessary instruments. Another procedure is done with an endoscope, a scope passed through the mouth into the esophagus. It comes with a device that encircles the lower esophagus with a few stitches to tighten it and prevent acid reflux from the stomach. This procedure is the Bard EndoCinch procedure. Dear Dr. Donohue: I am 65 years old and have been taking calcium and vitamin D for many years. I also take a 250 mg tablet of magnesium daily to help with the constipating effects of calcium. My doctor originally put me on it to control high blood pressure. Will the magnesium lead to dependence and slow natural bowel action? – D.K. Magnesium is an important but seldom-discussed mineral. It aids in the production of DNA, RNA, proteins and hormones. It’s a major component of bones, and strengthens them, along with calcium. It is used for the severe hypertension that sometimes occurs in pregnancy. Does it lower your blood pressure? The recom-

mended daily amount for adult females, 31 years old and older, is 320 mg, and for males of the same ages, 420 mg. Magnesium hydroxide often is used as a laxative and as an antacid. It’s milk of magnesia. The Phillips company markets magnesium hydroxide as Phillips Milk of Magnesia. Your dose of magnesium hasn’t hurt you and is not likely to interfere with bowel motility. Dear Dr. Donohue: My beloved niece recently passed away at age 54 from thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura. She was hospitalized for seven months and received many blood cleansings. What happens to the body with this illness? How could a healthy woman contract it? – A.M. Thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura encompasses many serious health problems: anemia, a decrease in blood platelets (the clotting cells), kidney failure, fever and neurological signs. Neurological signs are things like disorientation, paralysis, seizures and the inability to speak. The immune system makes antibodies that lead to all these dire consequences. Plasma exchange (blood cleansing) clears blood of those antibodies and returns it to the patient along with fresh frozen plasma. Plasma is the liquid part of blood, the part from which blood cells have been removed. I can’t explain why she didn’t respond. It happens. I am sorry for her, and for you.

Mr. Smith emerges as Wolfpack star ACC FACTS AND FIGURES:


xpected to be N.C. State’s main weapon coming into the season, Tracy Smith is filling that role just fine through eight games. In fact, the Wolfpack center is the only player in the top five in the Atlantic Coast Conference in scoring and rebounding as State heads into its game tonight against SPORTS Elon – the second game Greer for the Phoenix Smith against an ACC ■■■ team in four days. Smith, a junior, is tied for second in scoring with an average of 18 points per game and third in rebounding at 9.6 boards per game. Two other players are in the top 10 in both categories. Georgia Tech’s Gani Lawal is sixth in scoring at 16.5 ppg and second in rebounding at 9.9 rpg. Wake Forest’s Al-Farouq Aminu is first in rebounding at 10.1 and ninth in scoring at 15.8 going into last night’s game at UNC Wilmington. Smith, who has recorded four double-doubles this season, is providing more than a fourth of State’s offense. The Pack (7-1) is last in the league at 66.9 ppg, but still is to the good in scoring margin by only allowing 57.8 ppg. Smith’s scoring average is on the upswing. He has averaged 20.8 points per game while shooting 69.2 percent (36-52) over the past four games. One of his most impressive stretches came when he went 8 of 10 from the field and scored 17 points while leading State’s rally from an 11-point deficit for a 77-773 victory over Marquette.

UP IN THE AIR State guard Javier Gonzales is questionable for tonight’s game as he recovers from a hamstring injury suffered in the Marquette victory. Gonzales has not returned to practice since. When he couldn’t go against Georgia Southern and Julius Mays started last Saturday, it was the first time that coach Sidney Lowe changed his starting five this season. Smith, sophomore shooting guard C.J. Willams, freshman small forward Scott Wood, power forward Dennis Horner and Smith have started every game.

burst against Gardner-Webb, the most by an ACC player this season, boosted him even with Smith in scoring with a jump Smith from 17.1 to 18 ppg. Scheyer also turned in the best shooting exhibition of the season, hitting 11 of 13 shots for a .848 percentage. Malcolm Delaney of Virginia Tech is first in scoring at 21.6 as well as minutes played per game at 36.9. Deon Thomspon of the Tar Heels is fourth at 17.1 and Sylven Landesberg of Virginia Tech fifth at 16.9. Delaney has topped 30 points on two occasions, with 32 against Temple and 31 against Georgia. The only other 30-point effort was Tyler Roche’s 30 for Boston College in a game earlier this month. Ed Davis of UNC is tops in field goal percentage at .689 ( 51 of 74) and blocked shots at 2.7 per game. Larry Drew II of the Tar Heels is the leader in assists at 6.8 per game. Gonzales is averaging 6.6. Scheyer is tops in free throw percentage at .918 (45 of 49). Chris Singleton of Florida State is the steals leader at 2.4 ppg, and David Potter had the top 3-point percentage of .525 heading into the Tigers’ game with ECU last night. Duke is tops in scoring average at 85.4, followed by UNC at 84.4. Miami and Florida State are tied for the lead in scoring defense, giving up 56.7 ppg.

SHORT SHOTS Duke’s victory over Gardner-Webb on Tuesday was the Blue Devils’ 46th straight at home in the month of December, dating to a 62-61 loss to Michigan on Dec. 8, 1996. The Blue Devil’s 113 points against the Bulldogs was the most by an ACC team this season. ... UNC’s Davis has pulled down at least 10 rebounds in six of 10 games this season. His teammate Thompson has scored in double figures in all 10 games, including four efforts of 20 or more points. ... Aminu’s double-double (11 points, 10 rebounds) Sunday against Elon was his fifth of the season and 15th of his career. ... Will Sherrill cracking the starting lineup earlier this month for Virginia at Auburn was the first a walk-on started for the Cavaliers in four years not counting Senior Days. ... Miami tied a school record when it hit 15 shots from 3-point range against S.C. State on Sunday.

NUMBERS TIME Jon Scheyer’s 36-point out- | 888-3519





he Indianapolis Colts and New Orleans Saints face an enviable decision in the coming days and weeks. Do these 13-0 teams play their starters the rest of the regular season in an all-out effort to make NFL history? Or do they rest their star players and coast through the final three weeks of the regular season with their eyes on the ultimate prize, the Super Bowel trophy? That sure beats questions about making the playoffs, or – worse yet – losing enough games to secure the No. 1 overall pick in the draft.

Williams, Wake hold off UNCW

WILMINGTON (AP) – L.D. Williams scored a career-high 23 points, and Al-Farouq Aminu had 17 points, 13 rebounds and the highlight-reel play in Wake Forest’s 80-69 victory over UNC Wilmington on Wednesday night. Ishmael Smith matched a personal best with 19 points while answering several Seahawk rallies with slicing layups, and Williams was 8-for-8 from the free-throw line in the final 11⁄2 minutes for the Demon Deacons (7-2).

They shook off a sloppy start, shot nearly 54 percent and turned back several rallies to win their third straight overall and 12th in a row against the Seahawks (4-6). Chad Tomko scored 12 points and nearly brought UNC Wilmington back from a 15-point deficit. The Seahawks had won three of four, were playing host to an Atlantic Coast Conference team for just the third time and were denied their first victory against one of those programs in 17 years.

Clemson tops ECU GREENVILLE (AP) – Trevor Booker had 13 points, 12 rebounds and nine assists to help Clemson beat East Carolina 80-63 on Wednesday night. Andre Young scored 16 points to lead the Tigers (9-2), who trailed for all of 25 seconds in the first half before beating the Pirates by double figures for the third straight season. Clemson shot 46 percent and knocked down plenty of 3-point

shots, building a 10-point lead in the first 5 minutes on the way to a 17point halftime margin. The Pirates (4-6) never seriously threatened a comeback and fell to 1-62 all-time against Atlantic Coast Conference schools. Darrius Morrow scored 16 points to lead East Carolina, which got no closer than 15 points in the opening minutes of the second half.

Bengals WR Henry injured in domestic dispute CHARLOTTE (AP) – Cincinnati Bengals receiver Chris Henry suffered serious injuries after falling out of the back of a pickup truck during a domestic dispute with his fiancee, police said Wednesday. Henry was found in the road in south Charlotte “apparently suffer-

ing life-threatening injuries,” according to Charlotte-Mecklenburg police. Henry was transported to Carolinas Medical Center, the local trauma unit, but spokesman Scott White said he was not listed in hospital records and had no other information.

But the Colts and Saints clearly are wrestling with their options. I understand how devastating an injury to a key Colt or Saint would be at this stage of the game. There are sound reasons to play it safe and limit the snaps for the first-teamers down the stretch. Besides, there is little glory in becoming the second and/or third team to go 16-0 in the regular season. The Patriots did that a couple years back. There is tremendous glory in becoming the first team in NFL history to go 19-0.

Achieving that mark would be akin to becoming the first man to break the fourminute mile or the first man to walk on the moon. To borrow a phrase from the “Highlander” movies, there can be only one “first team to go 19-0.” We still talk in glowing terms about the 17-0 Miami Dolphins of 1972. I’m sure the 19-0 New Orleans Saints or 19-0 Indianapolis Colts would have a nice ring to it, too.



Charlie Frye will start at quarterback over former starter JaMarcus Russell when the Oakland Raiders visit Denver on Sunday. Coach Tom Cable said Wednesday that Russell will be his No. 2 quarterback, with the newly signed J.P. Losman third. Frye has not played at all this year and worked strictly with Oakland’s scout team. “It will be good to get back out there with the offense and run some plays that aren’t on cards,” Frye joked. “I’ve got a lot of fire in me. I’ve been that crutch and that supportive guy all season, so now it’s my turn to be the fiery leader.” The move raises serious questions about Russell, who started the first nine games before being benched in favor of Bruce Gradkowski.

ESPN shuffles Punchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cup racing role hensive team in motorsports and strengthens us in the booth,â&#x20AC;? ESPN executive vice president for event production Norby Williamson said in a statement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We play to the strengths of our announcers, and Martyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strength is calling the tactical aspects of the race while deferring to the analysts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And from the early days of our NASCAR coverage, Jerry helped evolve the significant role that reporting from the pits plays He will bolster our already strong stable of pit reporters.â&#x20AC;? Williamson said all other members of the announcing team will return. Reid will continue as lead announcer on the networkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Indy Car telecasts, including the Indianapolis 500.


Jerry Punchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s days as lead play-by-play announcer on ESPNâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cup telecasts are apparently over after three seasons. The cable network announced Wednesday that Marty Reid, who has been the play-by-play announcer on ESPNâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drag racing, Indy Car and Nationwide coverage, will take Punchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s place in the booth alongside analysts Dale Jarrett and Andy Petree. Reid will be the lead announcer on most of ESPNâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nationwide telecasts in addition to 17 Cup races. Punch will go back to the role of pit reporter that he had during ESPNâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s telecasts from the early 1980s through 2000.

Appalachian State quarterback Armanti Edwards headlines The Associated Pressâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; FCS first-team All-American squad.

Edwards headlines AP FCS All-America team NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Armanti Edwards, Terrell Hudgins and Deji Karim, the finalists for the FCS version of the Heisman Trophy, highlight The Associated Press All-America team for Division Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second tier. The team was announced Wednesday. Edwards, the Appalachian State quarterback, Hudgins, a receiver from Elon, and Karim, a running back from Southern Illinois, are up for the Walter Payton Award, which will be handed out Thursday night in Chattanooga, Tenn. Edwards was an AllAmerican last season, and could become the first two-time winner of the Payton award and end his career as one of the most celebrated players in the history of what used to be known as I-AA football. Limited to nine games this season because of injuries, Edwards passed for 2,504 yards, ran for 575 yards and accounted for 26 touchdowns. The senior led the Mountaineers to the national semifinals, where they lost last week 24-17 at Montana. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really special,â&#x20AC;? Appalachian State coach Jerry Moore told reporters after the game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been doing this a long

time, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably the most competitive athlete Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever seen or been around.â&#x20AC;? Edwards guided the Mountaineers to consecutive national titles in his freshman and sophomore seasons and led Appalachian State to a historic victory at Michigan in 2007. It was the first time a ranked major college team had lost to a I-AA team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ask for much more than what we have,â&#x20AC;? Edwards told reporters in Missoula, Mont. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Appalachian has three national championships. I personally have two. We won the conference every year. Of course, you want to try and win the national championship every year, but when you look back on everything you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ask for too much more.â&#x20AC;? Hudgins led the nation in receptions (111) and yards receiving (1,466) while breaking Jerry Riceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Division I record for most career 100-yard receiving games (26). Karim ran for 1,512 yards and scored 17 touchdowns. Edwards and Karim both have teammates on the first team: Appalachian State defensive back Mark Legree and Southern Illinois linebacker Brandin Jordan.

Bisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gray clocks two state qualifying times

Woods voted top athlete of the decade As sports go, it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t close: Tiger Woods was famous for his golf long before he became infamous for his personal life. For 10 incomparable years, no one ruled a sport like Woods. He won 64 tournaments, including 12 major championships. He hoisted a trophy on every continent where golf is played. And those 56 titles in one decade on the PGA Tour? Consider that only four of golfâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s greatest players won more in their entire careers. Even as a shocking sex scandal changed the way people look at Woods, the records he set could not be ignored. Woods was selected Wednesday as the Athlete of the Decade by members of The Associated Press in a vote that was more about his performance on the course than the selfdescribed transgressions as a person. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The only reason I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t vote for Tiger Woods is because of the events of the last three weeks,â&#x20AC;? said Mike Strain, sports editor of the Tulsa (Okla.) World. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think that was enough to change my vote.â&#x20AC;? He received 56 of the 142 votes cast since last month by editors at U.S. newspapers that are members of the AP. More than half the ballots were returned after the Nov. 27 car accident outside his Florida home that set off sensational tales of infidelity. Lance Armstrong, a cancer survivor who won the Tour de France six times this decade, finished second with 33 votes. He was followed by Roger Federer, who has won more Grand Slam singles titles than any other man, with 25 votes. Record-setting Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps came in fourth with 13 votes, followed by New England quarterback Tom Brady (6) and world-record sprinter Usain Bolt (4). Five other athletes received one vote apiece. Allegations of rampant affairs starting come out just 10 days after Woods won the Australian Masters before record crowds for the 82nd worldwide victory of his career.

drivers can earn NASCAR state and national points. The track announced Wednesday that its Sportsman division, previously a Saturday night class, will replace the Late Model Super Trucks as the featured class on Friday nights with its drivers eligible for state and national points. Previously, just drivers in the Saturday night Late Model Stock division could earn state and national points. Caraway also announced that Mini-Stocks will move to Friday, opening up the track to cars that compete at Bowman Gray Stadium on Saturdays. In addition to Late Model Stocks, Carawayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Saturday divisions will include Limited Late Model, Super Mini-Truck, U-Car and Pure Stock.

Pizza Hut Invitational At Greensboro Coliseum Special

Browns await Holmgren’s decision BEREA, Ohio (AP) – Mike Holmgren left Cleveland after an extended stay without accepting a job to become boss of the Browns. His aura lingered. The former Seattle and Green Bay coach’s flirtation with the team dragged on Wednesday with little word from either side. Holmgren spent two days talking with the Browns about assuming control of their football operations, but hasn’t decided if Cleveland will be his next NFL stop. Browns spokesman Bill Bonsiewicz said talks are ongoing with Holmgren’s agent, Bob LaMonte. “I don’t want to comment on the specifics of the dis-

cussions,” he said. “Both sides got to know each other and there is no timetable for a decision.” It appears Holmgren is weighing his options, which could include several other teams in the days and weeks ahead. Browns coach Eric Mangini, whose destiny could be decided by Cleveland’s new football czar, was placed in the awkward position of having to answer several questions about Holmgren’s courtship. He put on a brave face and insisted that he’s not fazed by owner Randy Lerner’s quest to find a “serious, credible leader,” one who will ultimately control the coach’s fate.

Jones-Drew hopes to get on track against Colts JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) – Running back Maurice Jones-Drew has nicks, cuts and bruises all over his body. He has aches, pains and a sore knee. He’s sat out just about every midweek practice this season and makes weekly visits to a massage therapist. He’s finding out just how difficult it is to be a featured back. Jones-Drew has 1,136 yards rushing and a leagueleading 14 touchdowns, but the last four weeks have been far from normal for the 5-foot-7, 208-pound wrecking ball. He’s averaged 69 yards on the ground and 3.4 yards per carry the last month, a huge concern for the Jaguars (7-6) heading into what looks like their biggest game of the season. Although the Colts (13-0) are getting all the attention because of their perfect record, their 22-game winning streak in the regular season and their decision to play or rest some starters in tonight’s game at Jacksonville, the Jaguars are more concerned with getting Jones-Drew back on track. Coach Jack Del Rio feels like it has to happen if his team is going to upset the Colts and maintain control of the final AFC wild-card spot. “He’s the guy that we’re built around,” Del Rio said. “Everybody knows that, and when they overload to limit his ability to be effective, we’ve got to be able to strike through the air. We haven’t done it well enough lately. Over probably the last month, we’ve been pretty stagnant in that area. “We need to get him going. We need to create more room, more opportunity, so we look to do that.” Jones-Drew has enjoyed some of his best games against the Colts. He has 668 yards rushing and six touchdowns in seven games against the perennial AFC South champions. He looked to be on a roll midway through this season, running for 530 yards and seven touchdowns in a four-game stretch that included three wins. But he hasn’t been the same since, and neither have the Jaguars. Jacksonville believes it knows how to beat Indianapolis: run the ball effectively, control the clock and keep Peyton Manning, Reggie Wayne, Dallas Clark and the rest of the team’s potent offense off the field. Even then, it might not be enough.

Injuries leave Panthers with few options CHARLOTTE (AP) – The man who has been blamed for starting Carolina’s injury curse had to share time with the latest unknown fill-in in the Panthers’ locker room on Wednesday. As Maake Kemoeatu made a rare appearance around the team while riding around with his right leg bent on the back of a specially made scooter, reporters rushed from him to talk to Geoff Schwartz, Carolina’s newest starting offensive lineman. Schwartz’s first NFL start will come against mighty Minnesota on Sunday and involve blocking for inexperienced quarterback Matt Moore. The defense, meanwhile, could have its 14th different lineup in 14 games with cornerback Richard Marshall nursing a sore right ankle. While falling from 12-4 in 2008 to 5-8 this season is no reason to smile, Carolina’s injury woes have taken on almost comical tone with 10 players on season-ending injured reserve. The Panthers will face the Vikings (11-2), Giants (7-6) and Saints (13-0) to close the season with a lineup that might make an old XFL team blush. Moore will make his third straight start with Jake Delhomme (broken finger) missing practice again Wednesday. Running back Jonathan Stewart (toe) sat out, too, but hopes to play. Receiver Muhsin Muhammad (knee) is banged up and missed Wednesday’s workout, while Schwartz is expected to start at right tackle with Jeff Otah going on injured reserve.



Former Florida QB seeks fresh start after arrest GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) – It looks like former Florida quarterback Cameron Newton is getting another shot at playing big-time college football. Newton, kicked off the team last year after he was arrested and charged with stealing another student’s laptop, led Blinn College (Texas) to the junior college national championship earlier this month and is being courted by several Football Bowl Subdivision teams. The junior college signing period began Wednesday, and according to Newton’s father, the 6-foot-6, 240pound versatile quarterback is considering Arizona,

Auburn, Louisville, Kansas State, Mississippi State, North Carolina, Oklahoma and a few others. Louisville and Mississippi State should be no surprise since both head coaches – Lousiville’s Charlie Strong and Mississippi State’s Dan Mullen – watched Newton closely during his time in Gainesville. Newton’s father, Cecil Newton Sr., told The Associated Press on Wednesday that his son was planning to visit Auburn this weekend. Cecil Newton said his son expects to make a decision next week and will enroll in classes in January, hop-

Grand time with the Titans Former T. Wingate Andrews High School star William Hayes (right) celebrates with Tennessee Titans safety Vincent Fuller on Sunday after Fuller intercepted a pass and returned it 45 yards for a touchdown against the St. Louis Rams in Nashville, Tenn. The Titans won 47-7, improving to 6-7 for the year entering Sunday’s home game against the Miami Dolphins. Hayes, a defensive end who excelled at Winston-Salem State before reaching the NFL, ranks 10th on the Titans with 44 tackles (25 solo) while standing second with four sacks. Hayes also has forced two fumbles. The left defensive end, in his second season with the Titans after being picked in the fourth round of the 2008 NFL Draft, has gotten the starting nod in nine of Tennessee’s 13 games this season. AP

D-III colleges debate role of sports ST. LOUIS (AP) – They play for the love of the game, not with the hope of landing a pro contract. Without athletic scholarships, many even pay their own way to school. The notion of studentathletes as students first is integral to Division III, the NCAA’s largest classification. But a growing body of research shows a considerable gap in classroom performance between Division III athletes and their counterparts in the overall student body. The mounting data is forcing the NCAA to consider such steps as tracking graduation rates and other measures of academic performance – a task now left up to individual schools. A pilot academicreporting program could be approved at the association’s annual meeting in Atlanta next month. Former Princeton president and author William Bowen sounded the alarm about academic underperformance at smaller colleges earlier this decade. His research led The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, which Bowen ran for eight years after retiring from Princeton, to form the College Sports Project. The project is spending five years tracking academic performance at 88 of Division III’s most intellectually rigorous schools, from Amherst, Wesleyan and Williams in New England to the University of Puget Sound and the California Institute of Technology. For CSP researchers such as Middlebury College dean John Emerson, the early results are discouraging. After one year in college, male athletes entering school in 2006-07 had average class ranks 9 percentile points lower than nonathletes. Recruited male

athletes had class ranks 6 points lower than non-recruited male athletes. The gap was only slightly lower for students who had finished two years of college. “It is definitely true that intercollegiate athletes tend to have lower grades than non-athletes at college institutions,” he said. “The million-dollar question is, ‘What’s the reason for that kind of underperformance?’ ” The College Sports Project research has clearly caught the attention of college sports’ primary overseer, the NCAA. While NCAA officials caution that the research is preliminary – and the study represents a sampling of only the most elite schools among the division’s 432 institutions – D-III members will consider setting up a pilot academic-reporting program as soon as 2010-11. Unlike Division I schools, which can be penalized with a loss of scholarships for not meeting minimum academic progress rates, the lower division doesn’t plan to use academic tracking as a punitive tool. Players and coaches at one successful D-III school think their level of competition strikes the right balance between school books and play books. At Washington University in St. Louis, senior guard Aaron Thompson

described grueling two-aday preseason practices for the two-time defending Division III basketball champions. He also told how fellow captain Cameron Smith arrives late to two practices each week because of a class conflict and how the team takes Monday off because too many top players have evening classes. “Division III really has the priorities straight,” said Thompson, a team captain and preseason All-American. Bears’ coach Mark Edwards is a former Division I assistant under George Raveling at Washington State who returned to coach his alma mater nearly three decades ago. He has no plans to leave. “I wanted to be in a program where the kids wanted the education, where they wanted to be challenged,” he said. “In Division III, the focus is on the student-athlete. At Division I, it’s focused on the fan, producing an entertaining product.” Edwards also called the academic tracking proposal a “non-issue.” Yet Emerson and others studying small-college athletics say tracking athletes’ performance in the classroom is fundamental to ensuring that D-III lives up to its core philosophy. “That’s not an unattainable goal. It’s not just pie in the sky,” he said. “It’s an ideal worth working

ing for a fresh start after spending the last 12 months recovering from what happened in Gainesville. “It’s been a nightmare for the family,” said Cecil Newton, who lives in College Park, Ga. “I’m glad to see that chapter closed.” The State Attorney’s Office dropped grand theft and tampering charges against Newton late last week after he completed a pretrial intervention program for first-time offenders that typically includes probation. Newton stayed out of trouble during his probation and appears to be on track to turning things around.

UK holiday travelers face strike chaos LONDON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; More than a million people faced travel chaos over the Christmas and New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s holidays as baggage handlers and check-in staff at Heathrow and Aberdeen airports announced strikes in tandem with work stoppages by British Airways cabin crews. BA applied for an emergency court injunction on Wednesday to stop the 12-day strike by its workers, due to start Tuesday, and also held last-ditch talks with union leaders.

Housing recovery signals hope WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The economy is weak enough to keep inflation in check but strong enough to increase the pace of home construction and raise hopes for a sustained recovery. That was the picture sketched Wednesday by government data showing an economy growing, however slowly. Higher energy prices sent overall consumer prices higher in November. But after stripping

out volatile energy and food prices, inflation disappeared last month. That gives the Federal Reserve, ending a two-day meeting Wednesday, leeway to hold its key interest rate at a record low to aid the recovery. At the same time, home construction rebounded in November after a setback in October. And applications for new building permits â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a gauge of future activity â&#x20AC;&#x201D; rose more than economist had

predicted. A housing recovery is critical to the overall economy. Also Wednesday, the government said its broadest measure of foreign trade posted a sharp increase in the July-September quarter, signaling higher demand for foreign goods. That, too, is seen as a sign of a strengthening economy. The current account is the broadest measure of trade because it includes not only trade in goods

and services but also investment flows among countries. For last month, the Consumer Price Index, the most closely watched inflation barometer, rose 0.4 percent. That was up from a 0.3 percent increase in October, the Labor Department reported. But â&#x20AC;&#x153;coreâ&#x20AC;? inflation, which excludes energy and food, was flat, signaling that inflation isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rising through the economy. It was the first time core

Europeans to pick Web browsers BRUSSELS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; More than 100 million Europeans will get to pick a Web browser after Microsoft agreed to offer Internet users a choice to avoid fresh fines â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a move that could represent a real thawing of long-standing tensions between the software company and the European Union. In a deal with regulators Wednesday, Microsoft Corp. will from March provide a pop-up screen to all users of its Windows operating system, asking them to choose one or more of five major browsers â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including Microsoftâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Internet Explorer, Googleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chrome and Appleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Safari â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and seven smaller rivals.

Cobalt International shares fall in debut DENVER (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Shares of Cobalt International Energy are down following their debut on the New York Stock Exchange. In an initial public offering, the Houston company offered 63 million shares at $13.50 apiece. Shares priced below the range of $15 to $17 range Cobalt had expected. By midday, shares of the company had fallen 24 cents to $13.26. They trade on the NYSE under the ticker symbol â&#x20AC;&#x153;CIE.â&#x20AC;?

inflation was unchanged after 10 straight monthly increases. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Aside from the surge in energy prices ... there were few signs of any inflationary pressures,â&#x20AC;? said Paul Ashworth, economist at Capital Economics Ltd. In the months ahead, companies will likely find it hard to raise prices because consumers are expected to remain cautious, the job market is weak and the recovery is sluggish.

FTC accuses Intel of stifling competition NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Federal Trade Commission sued Intel Corp. on Wednesday, looking to block pricing deals and other tactics the government said the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest chip maker has used to snuff out competition. The FTC said Intel, which makes the microprocessors that run personal computers, has shut rivals out of the marketplace. In the process, the FTC said, Intel has deprived consumers of choice and stifled innovation in the chip industry. In a statement, the agen-

cy said it is asking for an order that would bar Intel from using â&#x20AC;&#x153;threats, bundled prices, or other offers to encourage exclusive deals, hamper competition, or unfairly manipulate the prices of itsâ&#x20AC;? chips. Intel called the complaint â&#x20AC;&#x153;misguided.â&#x20AC;? The company accused the agency of rushing the lawsuit without fully investigating the charges and of basing its case on new rules rather than existing statutes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Intel has competed fairly and lawfully,â&#x20AC;? Intel said in a statement. Intel has faced similar

charges for years and has denied any wrongdoing. The lawsuit comes after a recent $1.25 billion settlement with rival Advanced Micro Devices Inc. over similar claims. In AMDâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lawsuit, a Toshiba Corp. manager compared Intelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s financial incentives for not working with the competition to cocaine, and Gateway executives said Intel beat them â&#x20AC;&#x153;into guacamoleâ&#x20AC;? with threats against working with AMD. Intel, which is based in Santa Clara, Calif., is also

appealing a record $1.45 billion antitrust fine leveled by European regulators. Intel shares fell 37 cents, or 1.9 percent, to $19.43 in morning trading, while AMD jumped 43 cents, or 4.9 percent, to $9.25. In its complaint Wednesday, which was scheduled to be heard in September by an administrative law judge, the FTC said Intel used threats and rewards to keep some of the biggest computer makers from buying other companiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; chips or marketing computers that carried them.

SEC backs broader disclosure on pay WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Federal regulators voted Wednesday to require companies to reveal more information about how they pay their top executives amid a public outcry over compensation. The Securities and Exchange Commission voted 4-to-1 to expand the disclosure requirements for public companies. Company policies that encouraged excessive risk-taking and rewarded

executives for delivering short-term profits were blamed for fueling the financial crisis. The SEC also changed a formula that critics say allowed companies to understate how much their senior executives are paid. At issue is how public companies report stock options and stock awards in regulatory filings. Such awards often make up most of top executivesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; pay. The new requirements

include information on how a companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pay policies might encourage too much risk-taking. The new rules will take effect next spring, when companies send annual proxy disclosures to shareholders. The changes will help investors make better-informed voting decisions for the companies in which they hold stock, SEC Chairman Mary Schapiro said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By adopting these

rules, we will improve the disclosure around risk, compensation and corporate governance, thereby increasing accountability and directly benefiting investors,â&#x20AC;? Schapiro said before the vote. But Commissioner Kathleen Casey said she opposed some of the new requirements, such as added information on directorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; qualifications, that she said could be â&#x20AC;&#x153;unduly burdensome.â&#x20AC;?

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The number of households with cell phones but no landlines continues to grow, but the recession doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to be forcing poor cellular users to abandon their traditional wired phones any faster than higher-income people are. The finding, from data compiled by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, suggests that when it comes to telephone habits, peoplesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; decisions are affected more by age and where they live than by their economic situations. The latest CDC study, released Wednesday, is consistent with its past reports: Overall, the poor remain likelier than higher earners to live in households that only have cell phones, and the proportion of wirelessonly homes at all income levels continues to grow. Yet surprisingly, the rate of growth of cellonly homes is consistent across all income lines despite the economyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recent swoon, the report shows. Whether households are poor, near poor or not poor, the proportion with only cells has about doubled between the first half of 2006 and the first half of 2009, according to the most recent statistics available.

Stocks stumble following Fed meeting NEW YORK (AP) — An early advance in stocks stalled Wednesday as the Federal Reserve reminded investors that it would start to wean the economy from an array of emergency supports next year. Investors knew several of the programs would be dismantled next year, but policymakers hadn’t confirmed the precise timing. The prospect of an eventual increase in interest rates and an improving economy pulled the dollar off its lows of the day. The dollar has been sliding for most of nine months but reached a two-month high on Tuesday. As the dollar pared its losses in afternoon trading, stocks began to lose steam. Most stocks rose for the day, though the Dow Jones industrials slipped 11. Broader indexes gained. The modest moves came

as the Fed said it would leave interest rates near zero, as expected, but officials also noted that weakness in the job market is “abating.” Fed governors made the assessment following a two-day meeting on interest rates. Investors parse Fed statements to see how policymakers are viewing the economy and for clues about when the central bank might raise interest rates. Ultra-low borrowing costs have pushed stocks higher this year and helped weaken the dollar. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 10.88, or 0.1 percent, to 10,441.12. The broader Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 1.25, or 0.1 percent, 1,109.18. It is up 22.8 percent for the year. The Nasdaq composite index rose 5.86, or 0.3 percent, to 2,206.91.

Deere & Co. and Kellogg’s have cut hundreds of jobs in western Wake County in recent months. During the past year, Cary’s office vacancy rate — a general barometer of the western Wake’s economic health — hit a fouryear high. About 18.2 percent of the town’s offices were empty at the end of September, up from 11.9 percent a year earlier, according to Karnes Research, a Raleigh firm that tracks commercial real estate trends.

But Deutsche and other companies are helping restore what has been lost: Deutsche leased 35,000 square feet in CentreGreen office park off Weston Boulevard, filling one-third of the building that struggling technology company Qimonda vacated earlier in the year. The operation, which will develop and test software that can be used by the bank at its sites around the world, expects to have about 50 local employees by the end of the month.

Data-storage company EMC in September said it would add 100 jobs in Apex as part of a plan to bring more than 300 jobs to the Triangle. In October, Buehler Motor opened its North American headquarters in Morrisville with 30 employees and plans to add 30 to 45 workers in the next three years. And Cary officials last week were considering an economic incentives package for an unidentified company looking to expand in the town.

Abu Dhabi vows to fight in Citi dispute DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Abu Dhabi’s main sovereign wealth fund, which is alleging fraud over its $7.5 billion investment in Citigroup Inc., vowed Wednesday to fight for its “legal rights” as it seeks compensation or an exit from the deal. Word of the dispute emerged late Tuesday when Citi said it had been hit with an arbitration claim from

Since August, when the subsidiary of the German financial giant said it would bring 319 jobs to Cary, signs of economic recovery have flickered. Companies including Sony Ericsson, Pfizer,

the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority alleging “fraudulent misrepresentations” in connection with the twoyear-old agreement. The development comes the same week oil-rich Abu Dhabi agreed to pump $10 billion into its struggling neighbor Dubai. ADIA, one of the world’s biggest government wealth funds, declined to provide a copy of the

claim or discuss the dispute in detail. “It is the policy of ADIA to pursue its legal rights fully,” a fund spokesman said. “ADIA declines to comment further due to binding confidentiality obligations, which ADIA intends to respect.” Citigroup earlier promised to “vigorously” fight the claims, which it said had no merit. It said ADIA

was seeking to terminate the deal, made at a time the New York-based bank needed capital to offset big losses from mortgages and other investments, or receive more than $4 billion in damages. Details of the legal battle remain murky. A Dubai-based spokesman for Citigroup had no additional comment Wednesday.



Oil jumps as US crude supply falls NEW YORK (AP) — Oil prices rose sharply Wednesday, wiping out a week’s worth of declines after the government said supplies of oil and petroleum products dropped much more than expected. Benchmark crude for January delivery surged by $2.23, more than 3 percent, to $72.92 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. In London, Brent crude for January delivery added $1 to $73.05 a barrel on the ICE Futures exchange.

Treasurys creep higher on tame inflation NEW YORK (AP) — Treasurys inched higher Wednesday after a new report showed inflation remained in check in November, lessening fears about potential interest-rate hikes. The 10-year note rose 4/32 to 98 11/32, sending its yield down to 3.58 percent from 3.60 percent late Tuesday. The 10-year note is often used as a benchmark for interest rates on consumer loans. The Labor Department said inflation at the consumer level remained tame in November, which brought relief to investors after data a day earlier showed prices at the wholesale level jumped more

Current account trade deficit widens WASHINGTON (AP) — The deficit in the broadest measure of foreign trade posted a sharp increase in the July-September quarter, a sign that the U.S. economy was beginning to rebound as demand for foreign goods increased. The Commerce Department said Wednesday the current account deficit rose to $108 billion in the third quarter, an increase of 10.3 percent from the second quarter. The deficit matched economists’ forecasts.

Ohio parents sue day care amid sleep aid probe


Four-year-old Taylor Pugh is seen in Balch Springs Texas on Tuesday. The parents of Pugh, a pre-kindergarten student nicknamed “Tater Tot,” are battling a suburban Dallas school’s decision to segregate their son because his long locks violate the district dress code.

Texas parents battle school over son’s long locks gether in a classroom. “They kicked me out that place,” said Taylor, 4, who prefers the nickname Tater Tot. “I miss my friends.” Taylor’s parents say he plans to eventually cut his hair and donate it to a charity that makes wigs for cancer patients. But they’re not happy with the district’s rules. It appears the school district “is more concerned about his hair than his education,” said Taylor’s

a letter Monday to parents and guardians of the 40 or so children enrolled at the day care to inform them of the investigation. The Colemans’ complaint, filed Tuesday in Hamilton County Common Pleas Court, is seeking class action status to represent other parents whose children have attended the day care. Messages were left at the Colemans’ home Tuesday and Wednesday, but Statman said he has advised his clients not to talk about the case. “My clients did notice that their child seemed out of it, groggy when they picked her up from day care,” Statman said. “Being first-time parents, they just thought that was the way it was with infants.”


BALCH SPRINGS, Texas (AP) – Pre-kindergartner Taylor Pugh likes his floppy hair just how it is: long on the front and sides, covering his earlobes and shirt collar. But his long locks violate the dress code in his suburban Dallas school district. So Taylor again Wednesday found himself facing in-school suspension, sitting in a library with a teacher’s aide while his friends played and learned to-

CINCINNATI (AP) – Parents of an infant say she often seemed groggy after attending a church day care where some workers are accused of giving children an over-the-counter dietary supplement at nap time, their attorney said Wednesday. Attorney Alan Statman represents the parents, Joseph and Andrea Coleman, in a lawsuit the suburban Cincinnati couple filed against Covenant Apostolic Church Inc. and unnamed day care workers at the church. Springfield Township police have said they are investigating allegations that some workers at the church’s day care put melatonin in candy to help children sleep. They sent

NEW YORK (AP) – Call it half a smile. The first Broadway revival of “A Little Night Music,” the enchanting, moonstruck musical based on the Ingmar Bergman film “Smiles of a Summer Night,” is a curious affair. There are some lovely moments, most of them supplied by Angela Lansbury, but too much of this adult, sophisticated show, which opened recently at the Walter Kerr Theatre, seems forced, boisterous and a little crude. Which is a shame since Stephen Sondheim’s waltzinfused score, among his very best, is artfully integrated into Hugh Wheeler’s bittersweet tale of generational attitudes toward life and love – young, middleage and elderly. Director Trevor Nunn has opted for a small, scenically spare, chamber-musical approach to the show, set in turnof-the-last-century Sweden and dealing primarily with the amorous adventures of Desiree Armfeldt, a celebrated actress of the day. She’s played by Catherine Zeta-Jones, who is making her Broadway debut. The Oscar-winning performer is gorgeous, looking just right as this ripe, alluring woman who has never shirked from the way of all flesh. Zeta-Jones has a throaty, sensuous voice which she uses to good, flirty effect. But her acting, particularly in the first act, seems overdone, too strenuously selfaware.

Thursday, Dec. 17, 2009 CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Vanessa Zima, 23; Milla Jovovich, 34; Bill Pullman, 56; Eugene Levy, 63 HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Weigh the pros and cons as you make your way through the ups-anddowns you face this year – and you will come out the victor. You cannot base your decisions on what others want. It’s what’s best for you that will count the most. Stern, calm reactions will work best. Your numbers are 2, 8, 19, 25, 31, 38, 47 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t take the blame for something that is out of your jurisdiction. Follow a path that is doable and you will excel. Use your experience to acquire what you want in the future. ★★ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Spending on something you really cannot afford will lead to stress but, if you use your imagination, you will come up with an alternative that allows you to please someone you love and also save cash. A trip will be the best gift you can offer. ★★★★★ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t confuse issues by giving a false impression regarding the way you feel about someone. Get to the point. Honesty and patience will pay off. ★★★ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Emotions will cause problems, especially if you find it difficult to complete a job someone is waiting for you to finish. Time is on your side and love is likely to find its way back into your heart if you are patient. ★★★ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You have to save your money. It’s never a good thing to spend impulsively or you let someone guilt you into paying for his or her needs. Be strong and budget wisely. ★★★ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A look at what’s transpired over the past year will give you some good ideas as to how you can make next year better. Formulate your strategy and make sure your goals are feasible. Let the people you care about know how you feel. ★★★★★ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): An argument will lead to a devastating turn of events, so don’t let a disagreement turn into something ugly. Back off, compromise or do whatever is necessary to keep the peace. Use your insight and creative awareness. ★★ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You will have to spend a little time and money in order to set things up for the future. You can obtain the information or skills required to get ahead in the new year. Question everything and everyone before you make your move. ★★★★ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Consider who and what has been a help and who and what has been a hindrance this past year and eliminate whatever is working against you. Change, along with a surprise, is heading your way. ★★★ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): It may be time to get rid of some of the hangers-on. You have more on the line than you realize and, if you are bogged down with other people’s problems, you can’t take advantage of the opportunities heading your way. Clear up unfinished business. ★★★ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Make your own choices but don’t do so without thinking matters through carefully. You can do something that you enjoy or you can continue down the same old path that leads nowhere. Set your goals and stick to them and help will be offered. ★★★ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Mixing your personal and professional life can have its assets but only if you feel secure. Someone you think you can trust will surprise you by taking unexpected action. Don’t let anyone limit or burden you. ★★★★




Cy the Cynic says Dr. Seuss should have written a Christmas book for modern times: “How the Grinch Stole Your Credit Card Information.” Cy hasn’t been a victim of identity theft, but when he was declarer at today’s 3NT, East stole the contract from him. West led a spade, and Cy captured East’s jack and needed the next eight tricks; it seemed the club finesse had to win. So Cy led a heart to dummy’s ace – and East followed with the queen!

DAILY QUESTION NINE TRICKS The Cynic then saw nine tricks without all the clubs: one club, one spade, three diamonds, four hearts. He cashed the AQ of diamonds, returned a club to his ace, took the king of diamonds and led a heart to dummy’s nine. Much to his distress, East produced the ten, cashed three diamonds and the king of clubs, and led a spade. Down three. “Fine thing to do to me at Christmas,” Cy growled. Cy might have reasoned that West would have led a heart if he’d had six of them. Still, East gets credit for a good piece of deception.



You hold: S 7 3 H A K J 9 D A Q C Q J 10 9 4. Your partner opens one spade, you respond two clubs, he rebids two spades and you try three hearts. Partner next bids four clubs. What do you say? ANSWER: Slam is quite possible. A minimum hand for your partner such as A K 8 6 5 2, Q 7, 8 7, K 8 3 will probably make six clubs. Cue-bid four diamonds to show your ace and suggest slam. If partner encourages with a cue bid of four spades, bid six 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.

Keith Urban co-wrote the first track on the CD, “Things I Believe.” “For some reason he didn’t record this song. He may have been holding it, but he let me have it, and I’m very thankful for that,” Wayne said.
