Where the celebrations are this 4th of July. 2A BY PAT KIMBROUGH ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – Musical entertainment, food and drink vendors, children’s games and, of course, a fireworks display are all on the agenda for High Point’s July Fourth celebration. The “Uncle Sam Jam” at Oak Hollow Festival Park is scheduled for Sunday afternoon and evening. Despite cuts to some parts of the city budget, officials said they have not scaled back the event, which culminates with a fireworks show that lasts around 20 minutes. “We held the line on that,” said Richard Shore, city recreation supervisor. “We’ve done everything we can to keep it as high a level of quality, as high a

TRIAD – Numerous North Carolinians who have put off summer vacations for the last few years due to economic constraints are expected to finally take to the streets during the Fourth of July weekend, according to AAA Carolinas. But the organization warns that anytime there is a significant increase in travel, there also is potential for an increase in traffic accidents and fatalities. AAA estimates road travel for the holiday weekend will increase by 12 percent this year – the largest year-to-year travel increase for the holiday in nearly a decade. About 930,000 people in the state will travel 50 miles or more from home. The most popular destinations for North Carolinians this weekend include Myrtle Beach, S.C., Washington D.C., Atlanta, Charleston and Charlotte. “What’s happening is a lot of people that were staying at home and waiting to go on that vacation are finally going this

other entertainment, Shore said. Other features on hand include face painting and 12 to 14 food and drink vendors. Organizers expect about 20,000 people at the park to watch the fireworks, which are put on by Zambelli Fireworks Internationale of Newcastle, Pa., and scheduled for 9:45 p.m. “It’s a great venue with the ampitheaterstyle bank, and shooting the fireworks out over the lake,” Shore said. “I don’t know that there’s a better venue, and a better place to get a full view of fireworks than there. It’s pretty awesome.” | 888-3531

Now the recommendations and proposals for the Heart of the Triad will go to the folks who have the statutory authority over the areas – the county commissioners in Guilford and Forsyth counties and municipal officials on councils in High Point, Greensboro, Kernersville, Winston-Salem and Oak Ridge. The Strategic Planning Committee wants the seven governmental bodies who control land use in the Heart of the Triad to endorse its principles and implement them through county and municipal policies. The Heart of the Triad effort has evolved since its inception six years ago, when many residents were upset and felt locked out of the discussions. “We appreciate the opportu-

The Heart of the Triad is an area identified as up to 18,000 acres along the Guilford/Forsyth county line that could become a mix of residential, retail and commercial development, along with preserving some land for open space. Most of the land is now used for farming or is open space.

GREENSBORO – The possible location of a Caterpillar Inc. plant in southeastern Forsyth County represents an example of why the Heart of the Triad discussion is taking place. Caterpillar is considering Forsyth County, along with Montgomery, Ala., and Spartanburg, S.C., for a new factory that could generate 500 jobs. The possible Caterpillar site would be on the western edge of what’s been dubbed the Heart of the Triad, a 18,000-acre region along the GuilfordForsyth county line that’s one of the last, large contiguous areas with major tracts of undeveloped land. A group of elected officials from the two counties and residents in the mostly rural Heart of the Triad have spent the last two years coming up with ideas for long-range land uses. The officials and residents, who make up the Heart of the Triad Strategic Planning Committee, approved a resolution outlining principles for development Wednesday. The committee members want to balance the need for economic development and job growth with preserving open space and farms and respecting the property rights of residents.





The Heart of the Triad is a proposal to guide land use of about 18,000 acres in the center of the undeveloped area between High Point, Greensboro, Winston-Salem and Kernersville. Governmental bodies who have jurisdiction to decide on the mixed-use development concept are the Guilford and Forsyth county commissioners and the city councils of High Point, Greensboro, Kernersville, Oak Ridge and WinstonSalem. The shaded area covers the general Heart of the Triad planning area.

JAMESTOWN – The delayed Ragsdale High School renovation project will mean a summer schedule change. While teachers and staff move from the old Jamestown Middle School to the new nearby middle school this summer to prepare for an August opening, school officials have canceled a planned move of high school classrooms to the old middle school to make way for construction. The project includes major renovations to Ragsdale High and joining it with the old middle school. A $10 million wing designed for as many as 100 autistic students will be added. With construction bids about $5.7 million over the $30 million budget, school officials are reviewing designs to see if they can rebid the project closer to the budget allowance. Andy LaRowe, the school district’s interim chief of operations, told community residents gathered at the school Tuesday

that it will take about 90 days to prepare a second bid package. Once under way, it could take two years to finish all construction. “It was a great attempt for us to get started, but we do not want to put kids in harm’s way during construction,” LaRowe said. “There are some difficult engineering issues to deal with,” said Board of Education member Paul Daniels, who represents the Ragsdale district. “There will be a school. We will do what we promised in the 2008 bond referendum.” Daniels said the school board has the option to move money to the project from others “if we can’t get it engineered under budget.” The bid was the first for a 2008 bond project to go over budget. Many residents are mistrustful because the school board spent bond money listed for Ragsdale High and Jamestown Middle School on other voter-approved school projects on the 2003 bond referendum list.

DAVIDSON COUNTY – Davidson County Schools students will face tougher restrictions on cell phones when they return to class in August. The Davidson County Board of Education on Wednesday approved revisions to its policy concerning wireless communication devices. The policy allows students to possess cell phones and other similar wireless communication devices on school property, but the devices are not allowed to be in use, displayed or visible during the instructional day.

Revisions to the policy state the use of cell phones are prohibited on all yellow school buses and activity buses being operated in connection with the instructional day. Students, however, are allowed to use cell phones on activity buses being operated in connection with extracurricular activities. The revised policy does allow for faculty members to deem if cell phones are prohibited in cases where the device may interfere with the safe operation of the activity bus. According to the revisions, students also are not allowed to use cell phones to reproduce images of tests, or take, send, share view or pos-

Noe places first in Masters Category BY DIANNA BELL ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – Greg Noe came home victorious after Saturday’s 19th annual Natural Atlantic Coast Bodybuilding Championship swept through the High Point Theatre in all of its muscle-packed glory. Noe, who is president of Samuel Lawrence Furniture in High Point, competed in the Masters category and was seeking a first-place finish in order to be awarded a pro card. The card will allow him to compete in competitions within the International Natural Bodybuilding and Fitness Federation that are not open to athletes of amateur status. Seven men were in Noe’s category, all jockeying for the card. “Those men were extremely sharp competitors,� Noe said. “They were probably the best

group of competitors I have ever gone up against.� Noe added that all competitors were in extremely good shape, which made for an even tougher and tighter competition. When Noe, 54, was announced as the winner of the Masters class, he was overjoyed. “I was ecstatic,� Noe said. “I’ve been working for this for four years, and I feel very good when I look at the competition from that day.� Noe also decided to compete in the Men’s Open Lightweight division at the last minute that day, where he placed second. As for the future, Noe has no immediate competitions coming up. His first INBF pro card event will probably be at the beginning of next year. “All that hard work finally paid off,� Noe said. | 888-3537

Voters poised to judge sheriffs’ qualifications RALEIGH (AP) – Voters in six counties decided in May they didn’t want former lawbreakers as their sheriffs. Now voters across North Carolina are poised to get a chance this November to remove them permanently from the candidate pool for the centuries-old office. The House unanimously agreed Wednesday with

the Senate’s proposed constitutional amendment to prohibit convicted felons from serving as sheriff. The chamber will need to approve the language one more time Thursday before it shows up on the Nov. 2 ballot. A majority of voters would have to agree to the amendment before it’s embossed in the constitution.

David Speaks HIGH POINT – David Brian Speaks, 45, died June 28, 2010, in Hickory.

RALEIGH (AP) — The North Carolina General Assembly gave final approval Wednesday to a new state government budget that contains no raises for state employees for a second straight year and threatens to underfund pension contributions even more if extra money doesn’t arrive from Congress. The House voted 66-50 and the Senate voted 28-15 in favor of the nearly $19 billion spending plan in mostly party-line votes. Preliminary votes were taken Tuesday. About two hours after the final vote, Gov. Beverly Perdue signed the bill into law. With the start of the new fiscal year Thursday, it marked the first time a budget was approved on schedule since 2003. Democrats like Perdue said they had to narrow another larger budget gap — this time it was $800 million — due to sputtering state revenues caused by the global recession, but protected public school teacher positions. Perdue predicted the law would create or protect 20,000 jobs over the next three years in part through a small-business tax credit and new transportation fund. Last year, Democrats calculated the gap at more than $4 billion when federal stimulus money was included.

“One more time, we’re doing more with less,� Perdue said in a ceremony outside the old Capitol building, which was already decked out in bunting and a large U.S. flag in advance of July 4, and surrounded by public school teachers, children, legislators and Cabinet secretaries. “We understood that the times were tough, the choices were going to be hard, just like we did last year,� Perdue said. Republicans, who sit in the minority in both chambers, said the spending plan falls short by spending too much during a deep recession and doesn’t prepare enough for a potential $3 billion shortfall in mid-2011 when temporary tax increases expire and federal stimulus money dries up. GOP leaders said they’ve offered ways in recent years to save money or generate additional revenues without new taxes but they’ve been dismissed by Democrats. “The truth is the majority likes to tax more and spend more, and we want to tax less and spend less,� said House Minority Leader Paul Stam, R-Wake. One Democrat, Rep. Earl Jones of Guilford County, voted against the final budget Wednesday. He is unhappy the state hasn’t strongly considered reviving the video poker industry to tap into new revenues

for the state. The budget bill gives local school districts and the University of North Carolina system the ability to force employees to take unpaid time off to save money, but lawmakers didn’t mandate furloughs across state government. “We’re definitely pleased to see there are no (broad) furloughs and pay cuts,� said Erica Baldwin with the State Employees Association of North Carolina. State Treasurer Janet Cowell said the state was “starting down a dangerous path� because off how little additional money was set aside to sustain the state employee pension fund. Cowell, a Democrat, told lawmakers in early 2009 the pension fund needed an additional $359 million from the Legislature during the next two years to keep it financially sound, but the two-year budget only provided a little more than half of the amount. The problem will get worse, according to Cowell, if the state doesn’t receive any of the money expected from Washington to extend a more generous Medicaid formula for six months. Lawmakers created a contingency plan in the budget that would hold back $139 million in scheduled contributions from the state to the pension plan.

Officers seize 170 pounds of pot BY PAT KIMBROUGH ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

DAVIDSON COUNTY – A Thomasville man faces drug-trafficking charges after more than 170 pounds of marijuana was seized from his residence. On June 1, Davidson County Sheriff’s Office Vice & Narcotics officers, along with members of the High Point Police Department’s Vice & Narcotics Unit, conducted a drug investigation at 195

New Castle Court, Thomasville, authorities said. During a search of the house, detectives seized about 172 pounds of marijuana, a pistol and multiple items of drug paraphernalia. Detectives arrested Adriana Yanet Rodriguez Valdez in connection with the drugs found at the residence. While police were there, Rodriguez’s boyfriend, Andres Santillan Villa, who also lived at the residence, arrived at

the scene, police said. Detectives attempted to arrest Villa in the driveway of the residence, but he “assaulted detectives with his vehicle� and drove away, according to the sheriff’s office. Villa was apprehended June 10 in Corpus Christie, Texas, allegedly attempting to enter Mexico. He has since been extradited to Davidson County and served with arrest warrants charging him with trafficking in mari-

juana by possession and manufacture, assault with a deadly weapon on a law enforcement officer, resisting, obstructing or delaying a public officer, maintaining a dwelling for a controlled substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to the sheriff’s office. Villa, 35, was booked into the Davidson County Jail under a $1 million bond. 888-3531

Detectives arrested Kerry Lamar Sheppard, 42, of Thomason Street, Lexington, and charged him with two counts of trafficking cocaine and two counts of trafficking opium in relation to the OxyContin, according to the sheriff’s office.

Deputies said the OxyContin, a type of narcotic painkiller, was found in 80-milligram pill form. Authorities did not disclose what form the cocaine was allegedly found in or what they suspect the destination was for the drugs. It also was unclear what evidence led investigators to Sheppard. The seized cocaine has

an approximate estimated street value of $4,000 and detectives listed the estimated street value of the OxyContin as approximately $18,000, according to the sheriff’s office. Sheppard was booked into the Davidson County Jail under a $300,000 bond. | 888-3531

But, Uzbeks who have returned to ruined neighborhoods after a promise of help from the Kyrgyz government say officials tricked them and are ignoring their calls for help – and worse. Men in uniform have been detaining and beating Uzbek men, some fatally, eight of the returnees told The Associated Press on Wednesday.

2 Egyptian officers charged in brutal slaying CAIRO – Two plainclothes police officers were charged Wednesday with illegal arrest and brutality in the death of a businessman in Alexandria in a case that has drawn attention from governments and human rights activists. Khaled Said, 28, died June 6. Witnesses said the two officers dragged Said out of a cafe and beat him to death. However, two state autopsies determined he died of suffocation from swallowing a packet of drugs.

Official: Militants kill 11 gendarmes in Algeria ALGIERS, Algeria – An Algerian security official says suspected Islamic militants have killed 11 Algerian gendarmes in a mortar and grenade attack near the North African nation’s border with Mali. The official says the gendarmes were carrying out a patrol in 4X4 vehicles in the town of Tinzaouatine when the attackers struck Wednesday. He spoke on condition of anonymity because of his department’s policy.

Brother to replace slain candidate in Mexico CIUDAD VICTORIA, Mexico – The brother of a gubernatorial candidate assassinated in northern Mexico was named Wednesday to run as his replacement in this weekend’s election. Egidio Torre, older brother of slain candidate Rodolfo Torre, said he consulted with his family before agreeing to fill in as the Institutional Revolutionary Party’s candidate for governor of Tamaulipas state, across the border from Texas.


German Chancellor Angela Merkel applauds Germany’s new president, Christian Wulff (right), at the Reichstag building in Berlin on Wednesday.

Merkel’s candidate elected German president BERLIN – Chancellor Angela Merkel’s candidate was elected German president Wednesday in a lackluster victory that took an embarrassing three rounds of voting and dashed hopes of a strong show of support from her governing coalition. Christian Wulff, a 51-year-old deputy leader of Merkel’s conservative party, won 625 votes in a special parliamentary assembly compared to 494 for opposition candidate Joachim Gauck; 121 delegates abstained – mostly from the Left Party.

Prosecutors seek 10-year term for Noriega PARIS – The prosecutor in a French money laundering case against former Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega asked Wednesday that he be sentenced to 10 years in prison, but his defense lawyers countered the charges were part of a political plot against him. Prosecutor Michel Maes insisted that millions of dollars that passed through Noriega’s French accounts during the late 1980s were kickbacks from the powerful Medellin cocaine cartel.

London Mayor Boris Johnson won a high court bid Tuesday to evict peace campaigners from the grassy area opposite the capital’s parliament building.

US, Afghans repel attack against major base KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) – U.S. and Afghan troops repelled an attack Wednesday on one of the biggest NATO bases in eastern Afghanistan by militants who used a suicide car bomb, rocket-propelled grenades and automatic weapons in a failed attempt to breach the defenses. It was the third ground assault against a major coalition base in Afghanistan in the past five weeks – a sign that the insurgents have not been cowed by U.S. efforts to ramp up the war. Eight militants were killed in the

attack, which occurred at the airport base on the outskirts of Jalalabad about 75 miles east of Kabul on the main road between the Afghan capital and the Pakistan border. The attack began with a suicide car bomber detonating his explosives near the gate to the base, followed by a halfhour gunbattle, Afghan officials said. An Afghan soldier and one international service member were wounded, NATO said. Chief NATO spokesman Brig. Gen. Josef Blotz said the attackers were unable to penetrate the defenses.

LARNACA, Cyprus (AP) – Cypriot police began searching Wednesday for an alleged Russian spy wanted in the United States who vanished after being released on bail a day earlier in the Mediterranean island nation. Police spokesman Michalis Katsounotos said Christopher Robert Metsos, 54, who says he is Canadian, failed to report to police in the southern coastal town of Larnaca between 6:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. local time (11:00 a.m. EDT and 1:00 p.m. EDT) Wednesday according to the terms of release imposed on him Tuesday by a Cypriot court. Katsounotos said a search failed to locate Metsos and authorities have begun the procedures to issue a warrant for his arrest for breaching the terms of his release. Andreas Pastellides, one of two lawyers representing Metsos in Cyprus, told the Associated Press that they’d had no contact with their client since Tuesday afternoon. Pastellides said Metsos did not show up for a meeting he was supposed to have Wednesday afternoon in Larnaca with Pastellides’ partner, Michalis Papathanasiou. Metsos’ quick disappearance raised questions about why Cypriot authorities released him on bail. “I’m truly surprised the court issued no such detention order against an individual who is alleged to be a spy,� said Ionas Nicolaou, member of parliament for the opposition Disy party.

Israel police arrest Hamas man set for expulsion JERUSALEM (AP) – A Palestinian politician slated for expulsion from Jerusalem because of his ties to Hamas was arrested by Israeli police Wednesday and now faces a court hearing over whether he will be forced to leave the city. Policemen arrested Mohammed Abu Teir in east Jerusalem for ignoring a court order to vacate his home, according to police spokes-

man Micky Rosenfeld. Abu Teir was taken to a police compound in downtown Jerusalem and will appear in court today, he said, and any further decision on if and when the Palestinian lawmaker will be expelled will be made by the court. If Israel goes ahead, the move could ignite tensions in the holy city. Palestinians in east Jerusalem, which Israel captured and

Confirmation all but sure, Kagan ends testimony WASHINGTON (AP) – Cruising toward confirmation, Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan completed grueling Senate questioning Wednesday, unscathed by Republican challenges on abortion, gays in the military and gun rights while sidestepping partisan debate about GOP-named judges pulling the court to the right. Kagan emerged from three days of vetting by the Senate Judiciary Committee much as she had begun, declaring she’d be an independent and impartial judge and denying Republican suggestions that she would be unable to separate her political leanings from her job as a justice. Democrats said President Barack Obama’s nominee to succeed retiring Justice John Paul Stevens was on track to become the fourth woman in Supreme Court history. “Solicitor General Kagan will be confirmed,� declared Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., the panel chairman. Republicans, despairing of their inability to get Kagan to reveal her legal views or say anything that might threaten her confirmation


Workers remove plywood from a Payless Shoe Store in downtown Brownsville, Texas, as the city waits for Hurricane Alex Wednesday. The plywood was placed early in the morning and later removed after learning the storm was expected to make landfall south of Brownsville in northeastern Mexico.

Hurricane threatens Mexico, Texas coasts MIAMI (AP) – The first Atlantic hurricane of the year has strengthened to a Category 2 storm with sustained winds of near 100 mph (155 kph) as it plows ahead toward a collision with the Mexican Gulf coast and south Texas. The National Hurricane Center says Hurricane Alex was expected to make landfall in northeastern Mexico sometime Wednesday night. The storm is far from the Gulf oil spill, but cleanup vessels were sidelined by the hurricane’s ripple effects. Six-foot waves churned up by the hurricane splattered beaches in Louisiana, Alabama

and Florida with oil and tar balls. Hurricane Alex flooded roads and forced thousands of people to evacuate fishing villages. Meanwhile, with hurricanewhipped waves pushing more oil onto the Gulf of Mexico’s oncewhite beaches, the government pinned its latest cleanup hopes Wednesday on a huge new piece of equipment: the world’s largest oil-skimming vessel. The Taiwanese-flagged former tanker named the “A Whale� is the length of 31⠄2 football fields and stands 10 stories high. It just emerged from an extensive retrofitting to prepare it specifically

for the Gulf, where officials hope it will be able to suck up as much as 21 million gallons of oil-fouled water per day. “It is absolutely gigantic. It’s unbelievable,� said Louisiana State University environmental sciences professor Ed Overton, who saw the ship last week in Norfolk, Va. As the monstrous vessel made its way toward the Gulf Coast, large waves churned up by distant Hurricane Alex left Alabama beaches splattered with oil and tar balls the size of apples. The rough seas forced most smaller skimming boats into port for a second consecutive day.

Insurance premiums for new high-risk pool could be steep WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama’s new health coverage for uninsured people with health problems won’t be cheap – monthly premiums as high as $900, administration officials said Wednesday. Prices will vary by state and type of coverage from a low of $140 a month to as much as $900, said Richard Popper, deputy director of a new insurance office at the federal Health and Human Services depart-

ment. Officials provided details of the plan, which starts enrolling people today. The price range is so wide because premiums will be keyed to standard individual health insurance rates in each state, which can differ dramatically because of medical costs and the scope of coverage. Independent experts estimate premiums will average around $400 to $600 a month. Younger people will pay less. “There are going to be

meaningful premiums that are going to be required to stay in this plan ... in the hundreds of dollars,� said Popper, with the Office of Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight. Despite the cost, consumer advocates are urging uninsured people with health problems to sign up soon, because they cannot be turned away for medical reasons. Family members may be able to help with premiums.

$ House panel denies aid to Afghanistan WASHINGTON (AP) – A key House panel voted Wednesday to cut off almost $4 billion in aid to the government of Afghanistan pending an investigation into charges that Afghan officials are blocking corruption probes and huge amounts of foreign aid is being stolen. The bipartisan move by the foreign aid appropriations subcommittee comes after The Washington Post reported that top officials in President Hamid Karzai’s government were blocking corruption probes of political allies and amid widespread assumptions that Afghan powerbrokers are moving millions of dollars out of the country. The panel’s chairwoman, Rep. Nita Lowey, DN.Y., is instead demanding that the Government Accountability Office conduct an audit of billions of dollar of past U.S. aid.

Florida police seek suspect in deaths of 2 officers TAMPA, Fla. (AP) – Police in body armor blanketed Tampa on Wednesday, searching for a man accused of shooting two Tampa officers to death, and officials revealed that the convicted felon was released from prison in April even though he had a warrant for his arrest. Tampa police were looking into why Dontae Rashawn Morris, 24,

was not picked up from prison by the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, who wanted him on bad check charges. “The warrant was issued while he was still in prison,� said Tampa Police Chief Jane Castor. Morris is accused of killing officers David Curtis and Jeffrey Kocab during an early Tuesday morning traffic stop.

Feds recall more kid’s jewelry LOS ANGELES (AP) – Federal regulators said Wednesday they have found high levels of the toxic metal cadmium in trinkets that were distributed for free to children at some doctor and dentist offices over the past five years. The news came as the Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a recall of nearly 70,000 charm

bracelets and rings – the fourth time this year that the federal government has said cheap Chinese-made jewelry was being pulled from shelves because of cadmium, a known carcinogen. What stood out about this recall was that kids got the items in places where they are taken to stay healthy or get better.

STAN SPANGLE SR.: VA clinics reach out to veterans in distant areas. TOMORROW

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


Some detest big government until they need it People rail and rant about big government and socialism. One writer recently referred to property taxes as piracy. But I have not seen any writers volunteering to return to the U. S. Treasury all the money which taxpayers have provided to take care of those writers’ parents and grandparents over the years. I am incredibly grateful for the money which Social Security, the Department of Veterans Affairs, Medicare and Medicaid provided for my parents when cancer and Alzheimer’s disease ravaged their bodies and their personal finances. Were it not for those “big government” programs, my sisters and I would still be paying our parents’ medical bills, 12 years after our folks passed away. Many people write that they want less government. Where shall we begin? Should we make do with fewer public school teachers, fewer police officers and firefighters, fewer people to inspect the quality of our food, water, air and soil, fewer paramedics, fewer paved roads, fewer school buildings, fewer air traffic



controllers and fewer dollars to help us care for our aging parents and grandparents? Sarcasm aside, some would call the foregoing items to be big government. I call them elements of a civilized society – the pooling of resources for the benefit of the community at large. Go ahead. Rail about big government. But don’t forget to thank your fellow taxpayers when that big red socialist government truck arrives to prevent your house from burning to the ground. JODY MCGHEE High Point

National security, nutritional standards are linked As Americans prepare to celebrate Independence Day, we should be thinking about a recent report finding that the obesity epidemic is endangering national security. In the “Mission: Readiness report, Too Fat to Fight,” retired military leaders note that 75 percent of 17- to 24-year-olds are unfit for the military, with overweight and obesity as the primary medical reasons. The report calls for federal legislation to improve the nutritional standards of school lunches. As a dietitian working to help schools add healthier foods, I strongly agree that the National School Lunch Program needs to be revamped to fight childhood obesity. The majority of meals

served in schools exceed saturated fat targets set by the federal government. A bill in the U.S. House of Representatives could help change that. The Healthy School Meals Act, House Resolution 4870, would create a program that would reward schools for offering more fruits, vegetables, and healthy, low-fat vegetarian options. This is the best way to help schools fight obesity, comply with federal standards and meet all children’s dietary needs. SUSAN LEVIN Washington, D.C. The writer is director of nutrition education for the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine based in Washington.

he N.C. House of Representatives was expected to give final approval to legislation today that calls for a statewide vote in November on a constitutional amendment barring convicted felons from running for sheriff in North Carolina. Approved last week in the N.C. Senate by a 46-1 vote, after House approval the bill will go to Gov. Beverly Perdue’s desk where she’s also expected to sign it, setting up the Nov. 2 constitutional amendment referendum. If all goes as expected, Tarheel voters will see on the ballot: “[ ] For [ ] Against Constitutional amendment providing that no person convicted of a felony may serve as Sheriff.” Earlier this year, we said this legislation, House Bill 1307, was all about former Davidson County Sheriff Gerald Hege. When we wrote that last spring, the former sheriff and convicted felon was poised to run in the May Republican primary for sheriff in Davidson County. But no, we were told, this wasn’t about just Hege because a handful of other convicted felons across North Carolina were running for sheriff’s posts. It was about the notion that any convicted felon should be barred from seeking a sheriff’s post. OK, we’ll concede that point; maybe Sen. Stan Bingham, R-Davidson, and House Majority Leader Hugh Holliman, D-Davidson, both strong backers of the bill, and a host of others weren’t out just to derail Hege’s re-election chances or his ability to serve if he won the primary and general election. But Hege’s bid for re-election surely was derailed – by the voters of Davidson County. In virtually a three-candidate race, current Sheriff David Grice handily won the primary, whipping Hege by a 61 percent to 25 percent total. And in that handful of other sheriff’s races around the state featuring felons, the voters said no to the felons there, too. Give the voters in Davidson County and in those other areas across the state credit for letting their preferences be known, which in these cases were not the felons. So why does the Legislature even need to approve such a bill calling for this referendum? Let the voters in each county around the state decide whom they want to be their sheriff – felon or no felon. We don’t place such prohibitions on other offices. But since we’re apparently going to have a referendum Nov. 2, let us go ahead and mark our ballot now: [ ✔ ] Against

From Arizona, abundant accusations, absence of proof


e all know that President Obama was secretly born in Kenya. And that there will soon be enough Muslims here to take over the country. And that Presidents Hoover, Truman and Eisenhower collectively deported 15 million illegal aliens. We all know these things – if by “we” you mean certain conservative bloggers and the gullible people who believe them and if by “know” you mean, “take as gospel, even in the absence of evidence.” Otherwise, “we” don’t know anything of the sort. So I am intrigued by Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer’s recent statement: “We all know that the majority of the people that are coming to Arizona and trespassing are now becoming drug mules.” She was responding to a reporter who had asked her for proof of an earlier statement that most illegal immigrants carry narcotics for drug cartels. Brewer went on to say, “They’re coming across our borders in huge numbers. The drug cartels have taken control of the immigration. ... So they are criminals. They’re breaking the law when they are trespassing and they’re criminals when they pack the marijuana and the drugs on their backs.” You’ll notice the one thing she didn’t do was answer the question. The one thing she didn’t do, or even “attempt” to do, was explain upon what statistics, facts or chain of logic she based her claim. I will say right here that I have no idea whether that claim is true, though I suspect it’s not, given that those who stand literally on the front lines of the immigration battle – U.S. Border Patrol agents – have cast doubt upon it. Mario Escalante, a spokesman for the Border Patrol, told The Associated Press the service could not even provide the number of detainees caught carrying drugs, but “I wouldn’t say that every person that is apprehended is being used as a mule.” T.J. Bonner, speaking for the union that represents the agents, went a step further, telling CNN Brewer’s claim doesn’t “comport with reality.” You’d think these men, because of their professional standing, could speak with au-

OPINION Leonard Pitts ■■■

thority on the matter. You’d think their opinions would carry weight. You’d think that would give pause to the governor’s airy, unsubstantiated assertions. You’d be naive. Indeed, hours after speaking with the reporter, Brewer repeated those assertions in a statement. It is, she said, “common knowledge” that Mexican drug cartels use illegal immigrants to smuggle

narcotics. “Common knowledge.” she says. “We all know,” she says. Again, note the lack of proof. The statement is quantifiable, yet the governor doesn’t bother to quantify. But then, you only quantify for the benefit of the head. You toss the raw, red meat of emotion for the benefit of the heart. In this case, the emotions being appealed to could hardly be clearer: nativism, xenophobia, and that old standby, fear. And they don’t ask any questions. Maybe you remember the Information Age. At the dawn of the Internet, we were promised a Jeffersonian utopia of instantly available information that would make us a wiser, more enlightened citizenry. Instead, we find ourselves stranded in a Misinformation Age where truth is multiple choice, geared to your political beliefs and one need never burden one’s cherished and preconceived ideas with anything as fusty and outdated as a demand for verification, authentication, fact. But some of us are cantankerous apostles of the old school, some of us reflexively suspicious of appeals to the heart that willfully bypass the head – especially when made by those in position to make policy and law on the basis of things “we all know.” So it seems not a lot to ask that next time Gov. Brewer says the majority of illegal immigrants are drug mules, she finally do the one thing she has failed in three attempts to do. ... Prove it.

World could use some manners, kindness



ave manners become an antiquated tradition? Are kind words and courtesy optional in our world today? I certainly hope not. I am very proud that both of my children and their spouses are teaching their children to say “please� and “thank you� and “yes, ma’am� and “yes, sir.� Children need to learn such important habits and how to reciprocate kindness at an early age. Manners are not just for children, however. Every day, the news is filled with examples of adults with no manners – road rage and rudeness can be found on every corner these

Our Congress is getting some age on it


s our nation has aged, so, too, has our Congress, perhaps even more acutely. A 2008 Congressional Research Service report found that the 110th Congress that year was the oldest of any Congress in U.S. history. The Congress currently in session today broke even that record. The average age of senators at the beginning of this 111th OPINION Congress was 62.7 years. By compariArmstrong son, the average age Williams in the first Congress more than 200 years ago was a mere 47. Clearly, longevity and the miracles of modern medicine explain away these differentials. Yet a closer look at the age breakdowns will reveal a heavy tilt in the upper chamber toward those entering or currently in the


eighth decade of their lives. As of last week, four sitting U.S. senators were currently in their 80s, and 22 are in their 70s. One senator – the once indefatigable Sen. Robert C. Byrd of West Virginia passed away this week at

We are the recipients of the policies these ‘elders’ enact. We are entitled to their personal and vested involvement. the ripe old age of 92. Even at that tender age, Byrd did not reach the pinnacle of my old boss and mentor. Sen. Strom Thurmond of South Carolina was 100 years old when he left the Senate. But is that a good thing? Is our nation better off because individ-


ual lawmakers tried to outlast one another and die in their jobs? We are the recipients of the policies these “elders� enact. We are entitled to their personal and vested involvement. President Reagan quipped, “Thomas Jefferson once said, ‘We should never judge a president by his age, only by his works.’ And ever since he told me that, I stopped worrying.� Unfortunately, I’m still worrying.

Individual choices at stake as new laws take effect THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Gun owners with permits can carry concealed weapons into restaurants that serve alcohol in New Mexico and Virginia. Young and old alike must show proof of age when buying alcohol in Indiana. Georgia and Kentucky are hitting the delete key on texting while driving. New laws taking effect today reflect states’ ongoing debates over individual freedoms, touching on everything from smoking restrictions to measures seeking to fight crime. A widely publicized Arizona measure, requiring police conducting investiga-

tions to ask those involved about their immigration status if there’s a “reasonable suspicion� they’re in the country illegally, takes effect at month’s end, though a court challenge is likely. Several states are also reducing programs and cutting spending to deal with record budget deficits. In Wisconsin, a new law aimed at curbing drunken driving increases mandatory jail time for repeat offenders, but drivers still won’t face criminal charges the first time they are caught. Police remain prohibited from setting up roadside sobriety checks. Convicted drunken drivers in four California counties, including Los An-

geles, will have to prove they are sober before they can start their vehicles. The test program requires first-time offenders to install ignition interlock devices. In Indiana, anyone buying alcohol after today must show ID regardless of their age. One goal of the legislation is to make it easier on clerks who may be reluctant to ask for proof. One lawmaker who opposed the measure called it overkill. “If I’m 70 years old and I go to a liquor store to buy a six-pack of beer, they obviously know that I’m over 21 years old,� state Rep. Woody Burton said Wednesday. “It’s ridiculous.�

In New Hampshire, the state’s antibullying law added a definition that includes the use of electronic devices, such as telephones, cell phones, computers, pagers, e-mail, instant messaging, text messaging and websites. Nevada added similar bullying restrictions.

Review panel: Harvard scholar’s arrest avoidable CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) – A black Harvard scholar and the white police sergeant who arrested him last July after a confrontation outside his home both missed opportunities to “ratchet down� the situation and end it more calmly, according to a review of the case released Wednesday. The independent review said

“misunderstandings and failed communications� and a “certain degree of fear� each man had for the other led to the six-minute dispute that ended with the renowned scholar being placed in handcuffs by the veteran Cambridge police sergeant. Sgt. James Crowley arrested Henry Louis Gates Jr. for disorderly conduct at his Cambridge

home July 16 while investigating a possible burglary. Gates alleged he was a victim of racial profiling. Charges were later dropped. The conflict sparked a national debate on race relations, and President Barack Obama invited both men to the White House for a “beer summit.� “The committee believes if

Sgt. Crowley and Professor Gates had been able to make their positions understood, and had made greater efforts to de-escalate the tensions of the encounter, the incident could have been resolved quickly and peacefully,� said Charles Wexler, chairman of a 12-member panel that studied the case and wrote the review.

Senate confirms Petraeus as Afghan war chief WASHINGTON (AP) – The Senate has unanimously confirmed Gen. David Petraeus as the next commander of the Afghanistan war. The vote was 99-0. Petraeus replaces Gen. Stanley McChrystal, whose three-decade career ended in disgrace because of inflammatory remarks he and his aides made to Rolling Stone magazine. As U.S. Central Command chief,

Petraeus was McChrystal’s boss and already overseeing operations in Afghanistan. His replacement at Central Command has not been announced. Petraeus offered a mixed assessment of the progress of the Afghanistan war, predicting that violence would get worse in coming months but asserting that the U.S. and its allies have made progress in Helmand province and other areas.

Crash kills 1, injures 3




HIGH POINT – One person was killed and three others were injured in a midday traffic accident in southwest High Point Wednesday. The crash happened about 12:30 p.m. when a minivan collided with a passenger car in front of the Westchester Centre shopping center at 2200 Westchester Drive. When High Point police officers arrived at the scene, they found a woman who had been ejected during the crash lying in the road. EMS units quickly arrived and pronounced the victim dead. Police identified her as Talia Oxendine, 29, of Thomasville. Oxendine was driving a 2000 Chrysler minivan south on Westchester Drive with three passengers. According to witnesses, a 2007 Lincoln

Police identified the victim as Talia Oxendine of Thomasville. Town Car pulled out from the shopping center parking lot on to Westchester Drive and collided with the side of the minivan, causing it to roll over, police said. All three minivan passengers were taken to High Point Regional Hospital for treatment of nonlife-threatening injuries. They were identified as Rhianna Annette Swinney, 28, Tyrell LaShawn Scott, 9, and Alexis Shantel Swinney, 11. The driver of the Lincoln was identified as Dainese Kennedy Hazzard, 77, of High Point. Her husband, Albert Berndale Hazzard, 79, was a passenger in the car and was not injured.

Police said their investigation is ongoing and asked anyone with information about the collision to call High Point Crimestoppers at 8894000.


Gordon Minor put this steam shovel through its paces. This is one of the more popular exhibits at the Southeast Old Threshers’ Reunion. The engine is a Type B Erie Shovel built in Erie, Pa., around 1919.


DENTON – Matt Smith said the Denton FarmPark’s Southeast Old Threshers’ Reunion is a way to keep the “classics alive.” “You get to learn about the way things were done back in the old days – in the 1800s and early 1900s,” Smith said of the reunion. “There was a lot of work and ingenuity that went into this stuff that you just don’t know about unless you come to a place like this and learn about it.” Smith, a member of the Southeast Antique Machinery Society and a Southeast Old Threshers’ Reunion volunteer, helped kick off the 40th annual Southeast Old Thresher’s Reunion on Wednesday. Along with members of the Denton-based Southeast Antique Machinery Society, Smith will help operate several steam engines during the five-day event, which is now called the greatest steam, gas and antique farm machine show in the Southeast. The reunion, which ends Sunday with a fireworks show at 9 p.m., is expected to draw 50,000 to 60,000 people, according to organizers. Roger Calhoun brought his 7-yearold son Austin to the reunion. The Calhouns have a 1960 model tractor on display at the event. “We like to look at stuff like this,” Roger Calhoun said, adding that the reunion is an educational experience for his son. “I think it’s pretty neat.” North Carolina Commissioner of Agriculture Steve Troxler visited the reunion Wednesday. “This always is one of my favorite places on the Fourth of July weekend,” Troxler said. “I love North Carolina’s agriculture heritage.

HIGH POINT – A High Point benefactor known widely for her deep faith and humble spirit has died. Jesse Millis, wife of the late Jim Millis, died Tuesday at the Hospice Home at High Point after a prolonged illness. A Chattanooga, Tenn., native, she moved to High Point after marrying Jim Millis, a leader in the textile industry, and spent the remainder of her life in the city. Together, the couple created and was involved in numerous

charitable projects in High Point. They donated the initial $5 million that Millis started the High Point Community Foundation in 1998, and made substantial gifts to the United Way of Greater High Point, the N.C. Zoo, High Point Regional Hospital, where the Millis Regional Health Education Center is named for them, and High Point University, where The Millis Athletic and Convocation Center is named for them.

He assisted with a 1924 steam engine that saws lumber. “This is one of the things that people remember from that past working around,” Osborne said of the steam engine. Aside from steam engines and an-

tique tractors, the reunion features live music daily, as well as numerous food and craft vendors. “It’s a very family-oriented event,” Smith said. “There’s lots of rides and games for people to do. The kids have a great time. The adults have a great time. You get to see a lot of antique tractors and machinery. You get to learn a lot.” | 888-3657

Philanthropist dies, leaves lasting legacy BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

Heath T. Andrews of Thomasville recently participated in the Governor’s Page Program in Raleigh. Andrews spent a week providing administrative support as a page for the N.C. Department of Environment and Natural Resources. He is the son of Jill and David Andrews and is a rising senior at Wesleyan Christian Academy.

Paul Lessard, president of the HPCF, said the organization would not have been possible without the Millis’ monetary gift. “They were community leaders who really thought about what the city needed and understood the power of wise investments,” he said. Through his years of working for the HPCF, Lessard said he came to know Jesse Millis as “the most godly woman I have ever met.” “In her mind, she always felt like her family were stewards of God’s money,” he said. “That’s

why they did such good. It shows through her children.” The couple have four children: Jim Millis Jr., Bill Millis, Emily Millis Hiatt and Molly Millis Hedgecock. All four received the Philanthropist of the Year award from the HPCF in 2008 and remain active in the community. Nido Qubein, president of High Point University, remembers Millis as a woman who never sought recognition. “She was a clear thinker who measured everything against Christian principles and human values,” Qubein said. “She sought


absolutely no spotlight and, in fact, denied every opportunity for personal gain.” Karen McNeill Harris, president of the McNeill Communications Group Inc., carpooled to a Bible study with Millis every Monday night. “The thing about Jesse is that she was the epitome of grace and love,” she said. “She was constantly taking food to people of all levels. She loved to bake and cook and give with her hands. If she heard you weren’t feeling well, she would bring something over.” | 888-3617

uestion: How do I know if I have pest problems in my garden, and if I do, how do I treat for it? Answer: First determine what the actual pest problem is. Check plants regularly for pest damage such as missing leaves, flowers or fruit or changes in color, texture or size. Most plant problems in home gardens are caused by poor growing conditions, temperature extremes, poor water management or compacted soil. Look under leaves and use a flashlight after dark, which is when many insects are active. Only after you have properly identified the problem or pest can you begin a control program. Nowadays folks are trying to avoid using chemicals as much as possible in an effort to protect the environment. In this case, integrated pest management should be utilized. This uses a combination of methods to keep pest populations at an acceptable level, with the least toxic first. They are: â&#x20AC;˘ Cultural methods: Buy healthy plants that are not prone to pest problems, plant them where they will grow well and rotate where annuals are planted to avoid build up of disease populations. â&#x20AC;˘ Physical methods: Pull or dig weeds and trap pests. Row covers designed to extend the gardening season have been found to also keep insect pests away from plants. â&#x20AC;˘ Biological methods: Garden plants can attract beneficial insects, such as parasitic wasps and green lacewings, to help keep

pests at bay. Some of the more common ones are alyssum, golden rod, yellow cone flower, coreopsis and sunflower. The use of a chemicals for control should only be used if other techniques do not work. If you decide to use a chemical, check the label to make sure your intended use or site is included on the label. Then choose one that is least harmful to the environment and to the applicator, specific to the pest and least harmful to beneficial organisms. Pesticides labeled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cautionâ&#x20AC;? are the least toxic to humans, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Warningâ&#x20AC;? are more toxic and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Danger-Poisonâ&#x20AC;? (with a skull and crossbones) are the most toxic.

The law requires that you read the label. Be sure to wear protective clothing, especially eye protection, gloves and long pants. Pesticides are more concentrated than they used to be and are made for very specific uses. You may need only a fraction of an ounce to treat a large area or number of plants, perhaps less than in previous years. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use more product than the label specifies. More is not better. KAREN C. NEILL, an urban horticulture extension agent, can be contacted (336) 375-5876, e-mail, on the Web at

fund similar chimpanzee conservation projects. As with the three other winners, Jesue was the first recipient of his award, given to recognize individuals in the zoological community who have been actively involved in projects, studies and research concerning zoo- and aquatic-animal nutrition. Jesue was additionally recognized in his award for his dedication that goes far beyond the daily care of his animals. Studies shown that captive gorillas often suffer from maladies, such as high cholesterol and heart disease, more than their wild counterparts. Since June 2008, gorillas at the N.C. Zoo have been offered a new diet high in fiber and low in starch and sugars, more like the diet they eat in the wild. Jesue and his coworkers closely monitored the animals and collected data as the gorillas adjusted to this new diet. While all the zooâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gorilla keepers took part in the data collection throughout the process, Jesue went one step further, compiling the initial data and presenting it at national zoological gatherings.

The Kendall Project, for which three N.C. Zoo keepers were recently recognized, was inspired by the integration of the chimpanzee Kendall into the zooâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s established troop of 12 other chimps.

ASHEBORO â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Four North Carolina Zoo keepers won awards given by the American Association of Zoo Keepers. Three keepers, Beth McChesney, Becky Kloepfer and Kelly Murphy, won a Certificate of Merit in Conservation Award for their contributions on the Kendall Project. The fourth recipient, gorilla keeper Aaron Jesue, won the Mazuri Animal Nutrition Award for his work in gorilla diet, health and nutrition. McChesney, Kloepfer and Murphy are the first recipients of their awards that are presented in recognition of outstanding keeper-initiated contributions to conservation of wildlife and wildlife habitats. Their project, ongoing at the zoo, centers on the integration of a former entertainment chimpanzee, named Kendall, into the zooâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s established troop of 12 other chimps. Considered â&#x20AC;&#x153;socially inappropriateâ&#x20AC;? for normal introduction, the chimp initially presented enormous challenges to the chimp keepers. Upon his arrival at the zoo from a private

facility where he had been singly housed, the young Kendall did not know how to be a chimp, according to a keeper. But the chimpâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s struggles touched the hearts of the keepers and inspired them to create the project. In addition to the introduction of the young chimp into the zooâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s established troop, the Kendall Project has three other missions: to educate people about great-ape biology, husbandry and their endangered status in the wild; to provide information regarding the misuse of great apes in entertainment; and to raise funds for organizations that promote the welfare of apes in entertainment and those that may provide assistance for retired entertainment apes. The keepers and the N.C. Zoo Society began a website on the project at Though the focus of the website is education, it also gives updates on Kendall and provides general chimpanzee facts and information on current fundraising projects. The website also uses online fundraising by selling Kendall Project merchandise to help

Polio can pay second visit


ear Dr. Donohue: In 1951, I caught polio, and it affected mostly my right leg. I didn’t have it as tough as those who had to be put in an iron lung, but I had trouble walking for many years. Finally, I could get around without too much difficulty. Now I’m losing strength in my right leg, and I think my left might be slightly affected. My doctor says I have postpolio syndrome. Does that mean the virus is active again? – M.H.


People born after 1955, the year of the polio vaccine, have no idea of the fear this illness engendered. Many of the stricken had to spend long periods in an iron lung, a cylindrical metal unit through which only their heads were visible. It made it possible for polio patients whose breathing muscles had been paralyzed. In 1952, more than 57,000 people were stricken. Today, in developed countries, few cases occur, and those cases are usually in people who have come from developing countries. The virus attacks motor nerves in the central nervous system, nerves that control muscle action. Often, the first signs of an attack are neck and back pain. Muscle weakness and paralysis follow for some. Now, many, many decades later, some people who had polio in the distant past are finding that limbs that had regained their strength after convalescence from the original attack are becoming weak. That is















post-polio syndrome. The polio virus hasn’t reactivated. More likely, HEALTH nerves that had taken Dr. Paul over the Donohue work of po■■■ lio-injured nerves have become exhausted and cannot continue to do double duty. No medicine exists for post-polio syndrome. However, its progress is usually slow. You don’t have to be inactive, but you do have to pace yourself. The doctors best qualified to teach you are physical rehabilitation doctors and neurologists. Post-Polio Health International, an organization devoted to helping post-polio patients, can provide you with detailed information on what you can do to keep this second encounter with polio to a minimum of discomfort and disability. Its website is:, and its phone number is 314-534-0475. Dear Dr. Donohue: Does a low-protein diet help people with Parkinson’s disease? I’ve never heard of it, and my husband has been a Parkinson’s patient for the past five years. He’s getting along fairly well with the medicines he takes. His sister told me about this diet. If it really helps, I want to know. I’ll do anything to help my husband. – N.O.

Amino acids are the components of proteins. A few amino acids might block the entrance of Parkinson’s drugs into the brain, where they work. Not every Parkinson’s patient needs to be on a low-protein diet. Your husband is an example of one who doesn’t need it. He’s doing well. There’s no reason to introduce a change in his life. Should medicines not do their job, that would be the time to think of trying the diet. Dear Dr. Donohue: My son is infected with the AIDS virus. He doesn’t know how he got it. He says he doesn’t have AIDS, and he means it. How can that be if he’s infected? He told us he was. – B.U. The “AIDS virus” is properly called HIV, human immunodeficiency virus. Your son does have the virus. AIDS is the illness that comes from infection with HIV. For most infected people, it takes 10 years for the signs and symptoms of HIV infection to develop. When they do, the person then has AIDS, acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. In these days of powerful drugs against HIV, given before symptoms occur, many infected people are living their entire lives without coming down with AIDS symptoms. They have the virus; they don’t have AIDS. Let me also add that it can be quite difficult to take these medicines, and they have their own set of side effects.

Animated characters (from left) Zapp Brannigan, Professor Farnsworth, Leela, Fry, Hermes, Amy, Bender and Dr. Zoidberg are shown in a scene from “Futurama.”

Comedy Central signs animated sci-fi series FRAZIER MOORE AP TELEVISION WRITER


OS ANGELES – In the new edition of “Futurama,” Professor Farnsworth brings his doomed crew back to life with an experimental rebirthing technique. “Oh, mahn, I’m dripping with placenta,” says Jamaican accountant Hermes Conrad, who just moments before had been a lifeless skeleton. “Good thing it’s casual Friday.” Pretty much anything can happen in the year 3000, where “Futurama” resided on Fox for five hilarious seasons that ended in 2003. Now, thanks to Comedy Central, “Futurama” is itself reborn and back to its old new tricks. The animated sci-fi comedy is back for a season of 12 new half-hours, kicked off earlier this month with back-to-back episodes. This, as Professor Farnsworth often says in his quavering tone, is surely “Good news, everyone!” Comedy Central has committed to 26 halfhours in all. “Futurama” follows the life of Philip J. Fry, a dimwitted pizza delivery boy who, by a quirk of fate, was cryogenically frozen in his native Manhattan of 1999 and thawed a thousand years later in the reconstituted city of New New York. There Fry landed a job with the Planet Express Intergalactic package-delivery company. Planet Express is owned by Farnsworth (who at 160 years old is both a scientific genius and batty) and employs a sarcastic robot-reprobate named Bender; Dr. Zoidberg, a lobsterlike alien who serves as staff physician; and, perhaps most notably, Leela, a sexy, kickboxing mutant with a single large eyeball with whom Fry is hopelessly smitten. “Futurama” was created by Matt Groening and developed with David X. Cohen, an executive producer. A few months ago, Cohen was presiding over his cast of voice artists in a plushly soundproofed Hollywood studio as they recorded the dialogue for a future episode. The gathered ensemble, fanned around Cohen at his desk in a semicircle and perched in tall chairs, included “Married ... With Children” and “Sons of Anarchy” star Katey Sagal, who voices Leela. There was also John DiMaggio (Bender), Phil LaMarr (Hermes), Lauren Tom (the spoiled, spikey-haired intern, Amy) and Maurice LaMarche (fielding no fewer than seven supporting roles in that day’s script). But first among equals was Billy West, whose seemingly limitless repertoire in-

cludes Fry, Farnsworth and Zoidberg, as well as the preening, cowardly starship captain Zapp Brannigan. With their scripts on easels in front of them, they began at Act 1, Scene 1 of “The Silence of the Clamps,” performing each scene in sequence. Certain sections were repeated, lines were given multiple readings, words got different intonations, all courtesy of Cohen’s coaching, interspersed with eruptions of group wisecracking and chortles. “It helps to riff with the other actors,” West had said beforehand. “We fool around a lot and we make each other laugh, and that promotes a good energy in the room. That’s what puts me in the mood.” “It’s like a disjointed radio show,” said Sagal, “except with big breaks, because these guys, as you can tell, are very funny. So sometimes it takes us a while to actually get to the work – but we get there.” It’s part of the charm for a team that voiced some 70 “Futurama” episodes, then four direct-to-DVD movies (aired by Comedy Central), then, years later, reunited yet again for the reborn series. “When you’ve worked with each other for as long as we have, it all comes naturally. You always know something’s coming from the other guy – but something unexpected,” DiMaggio said. “It’s like when your uncle’s gonna tickle you, but you just don’t know where,” added LaMarche. The cast’s biggest challenge: not cracking up in mid-scene. “Early on, John learned to use whatever cushion was nearby to put over his mouth.” As Groening’s big follow-up to “The Simpsons,” ‘’Futurama” was always overshadowed by his brilliant first-born. Who knows why? The verbal humor, sight gags, wicked cultural jabs and general irreverence that make “The Simpsons” great were always found full-strength on “Futurama.” What’s more, “Futurama” took a bold step beyond “The Simpsons” (based as it is in Homer Simpson’s hometown of Springfield) to take on the entire universe from a vantage point a thousand years removed. “Futurama” premiered in March 1999 after Groening and Cohen, already a veteran “Simpsons” writer, had spent years contemplating what a sci-fi cartoon show should be like. “I think Matt zeroed in on me as the nerrrrrd of the ‘Simpsons’ writers,” Cohen recalled, “though many people on that staff could have easily qualified.”

A bigger “Project Runway” is coming to a television near you. Host Heidi Klum says each episode will be 90 minutes when the reality show returns July 29 on the Lifetime network. That’s 30 minutes more drama each week – and that’s just how Klum likes it. “We did get always a few complaints from people that they wanted to see a little bit more, which we were obviously very excited about,” she said in a phone interview. “So now we have half an hour more.” That means 30 minutes more drama each week, which this season is set to include ample tears and ambulance visits for three contestants who collapsed on the set. “We never had that happen before,” Klum said. Now in its eighth season, the show pits aspiring fashion designers against each other for a $100,000 cash prize to help them launch their own clothing line and a fashion spread in Marie Claire magazine. Klum said the designers keep the show interesting. “We are not like other shows where we are styling them to look a certain way or feeding them lines,” she said. “It’s all real, and people like that.” After spending a season in Los Angeles, “Project Runway” is returning to New York City. The show is also moving to an earlier time slot: 9 p.m. instead of 10 p.m.







“I like a man who takes his time,” said the sultry Mae West. West (today’s West, not Mae West) didn’t take her time against South’s game and probably cost herself 700 points. Against 3NT West sprang with the king of spades. South held up his ace twice, won the third spade, led a diamond to dummy and returned a club to his king. West took her ace and cashed her last spade for the fourth defensive trick, but when she exited with a diamond, South ran the diamonds and, at the end, finessed with the queen of hearts. South took five diamonds, two hearts, a spade and a club.

GOOD CLUBS South was sure to have good clubs: He opened one club and wouldn’t have led to an unsupported king. So West was unwise to grab her ace. West Mae beat 3NT if she takes her time and plays low smoothly on the first club. South won’t be sure what to do. He could still succeed by finessing in hearts, but if instead he runs the diamonds and leads a second club to his queen, he goes down.



Thursday, July 1, 2010 CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Liv Tyler, 33; Missy Elliott, 39; Pamela Anderson, 43; Dan Aykroyd, 58 HAPPY BIRTHDAY: This is not only a learning year but a push-for-what-you-want year, if you intend to reach your goals. There will be plenty going on at home and it’s probably a good time to clean house emotionally. Get everything out in the open so you can see clearly where you stand. If you don’t make things happen, nobody else will. Your numbers are 9, 13, 25, 27, 35, 37, 40 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Do for yourself; as soon as you ask for help, you will be in a vulnerable position. Strive for perfection and try to keep the peace. Compromise may be necessary at home. ★★★ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Communicating with people who can offer you information about travel, home improvements or an interest you have, will lead to changes that enrich your life. It’s not luxury items that will help your financial situation but rather a good investment. ★★★★ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Impulsive actions will lead to emotional upset. You have to look at the pros and cons before making a move that may jeopardize your financial and emotional well-being. Don’t let your lack of knowledge or experience be behind a snap decision. ★★ CANCER (June 21-July 22): You may feel like making a fast move but, before you do, make sure you have something to compensate for whatever you are giving up. Uncertainty at home will affect your work and productivity. Discuss your feelings and options with an outside source. ★★★★★ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): There is money to be made. Traveling, setting up meetings or investing in something that interests you will lead to a profit. Present and promote your idea and your efforts will pay off. Uniqueness will capture the consumer. ★★★ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Your overzealous need to help others will be appreciated but, for once, do something for yourself. Buy something that will make your life easier or less stressful. Once in a while, you have to take credit for the things you accomplish. ★★★ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): If you meddle or try to take on everyone’s responsibilities, you will jeopardize your reputation and your position. You must have faith in your abilities and ignore jealous comments designed to make you feel insecure. ★★★ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don’t be confused by someone who isn’t giving you a straight answer. You have a great chance to advance if you present what you’ve been working on to a group. Listening to someone with experience will enable you to see what’s being offered and how it can help you expand your interests. ★★★★★ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You may be a little touchy, especially if someone calls your bluff. Changes at home may feel like a burden at first but, as time passes, you will see the benefits that come with the added responsibility. ★★ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Your emotions will play a role in the decisions you make. Working with others as opposed to controlling what everyone does will get you much further. Diplomacy and praise will lead to exactly what you want. ★★★★ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Emotions will be triggered by what others do and say. Discuss your plans and you will realize your potential through the feedback you receive. Your efforts will pay off in the friendships you make along the way. ★★★ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Time out for entertainment will do you good. Evaluate your current relationships and decide who is good for you and who isn’t. Don’t limit yourself because you are afraid of hurting someone. Be honest. ★★★

You bid two spades, and partner tries three clubs. What do you say? ANSWER: Your partner’s cue bid of two diamonds showed game interest at least, and his three clubs (a new suit) is forcing.

Steven Tyler, lead singer of the rock band Aerosmith, performs June 10, 2009 at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre in Maryland Heights, Mo.

After discord, Tyler says Aerosmith now at peak NEKESA MUMBI MOODY AP MUSIC WRITER


EW YORK â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Steven Tyler can laugh about it

now. The fall off the stage that caused the cancellation of Aerosmithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2009 summer tour. His stint in rehab for prescription drug abuse. The fights with his bandmates, and the talk of replacing him as lead singer for Aerosmith. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because now that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back at the helm of the group â&#x20AC;&#x201C; belting out songs in front of thousands of fans â&#x20AC;&#x201C; nothing else matters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The band has never been better, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m singing better,â&#x20AC;? said an energetic Tyler in a recent phone interview. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been beautiful and I realized when I was taking care of my problems that the band is all I really care about.â&#x20AC;? Tyler â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who is on tour with Aerosmith in Europe and starts a U.S. tour with the band on July 23 in Oakland, Calif. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; talked recently about his battle for sobriety, putting the discord behind him and being a â&#x20AC;&#x153;dancing foolâ&#x20AC;? at 62. AP: What has it been like to play with the band after the tumultuous last year? Tyler: Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a great tour. You know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a little hard for me. Being in Aerosmith is like living on the tail of a comet. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a lot of injuries over the last couple of the years. I had ACL reconstruction on my knee ... operations on my feet, my mom passed away. A lot of things came to play that made it easy for me to abuse some things. ... Even though some of the people in the band were going public with some of the stuff which turned very ugly, I managed to pull it all back together again and say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Look, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just get out there and be the band that we know we are and not argue about this crap anymore.â&#x20AC;? AP: How easy was that after the ugliness? Tyler: I realize that certain people that decide to go in the press

with dirty laundry, I just have to look the other way and realize I need to keep my side of the street clean, and they do what they do. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really unfortunate that certain people were Twittering and going to the press. It got really ugly, but you know, again, I just went back to them and I said ... â&#x20AC;&#x153;More than anything, I really want to play with this band. I really love this band and I love who Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve become because of the band.â&#x20AC;? ... Everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got their problems and their demons, but when we get onstage and play

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been beautiful and I realized when I was taking care of my problems that the band is all I really care about.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Steve Tyler Aerosmithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lead singer as five, that really all goes away, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really all I look at now. AP: There has been tension in Aerosmith throughout the years. Are you still able to be friends as well as bandmates? Tyler: Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m doing a book called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Does the Noise in My Head Bother You,â&#x20AC;? and I will be speaking about what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like to be married to four other guys, and what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had to put up with. ... There will never be another band like Aerosmith, and I just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to do anything to hurt that. I love the band so much. AP: You are in pain and have battled back from an addiction to pain medicines. How do you prevent yourself from falling into past

Is your hearing current?

patterns on this new tour? Tyler: I realize that the best part of me is who I am sober so thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all there is to it. ... I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know whether I will use tomorrow, but today Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m happy. ... Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a 500-pound gorilla on my back, waiting in the parking lot for me that wants to take me down, and I wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t for any reason go out there and deal with that. I have to get a knee replacement, I have to have another operation on my feet, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll let a nurse take care of my stuff. I just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be around that stuff anymore. I need to be a power of example for my bandmates, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t I? (laughs)... Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still in Aerosmith so the circus is still in town. So when it comes to dealing with the band, I take it a day at a time with these guys. AP: Is a new Aerosmith album coming? Tyler: The truth is Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never stopped writing. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got 12 songs Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sitting on right now for a solo record. Aerosmith has to finish a studio album; weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re gonna do that first. AP: Do you feel that you are more careful onstage now? Are you tentative? Tyler: Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a dancing fool out there. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m my own worst enemy when it comes to risk-taking, but I do what I do. ... I am (more careful) when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s raining. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do anything ... Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m real careful when it comes to that. But ordinarily, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gotten real strong jumping over all the pedals my guitar players have out there in the middle of the stage and the monitor wedges. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like a little hurdle out there for me. AP: Can you see yourself doing this 10, 15 years from now? Tyler: Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be doing this 20 years from now. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be doing this as long as sound comes out of my mouth.

Miley Cyrus asserts her independence N

EW YORK â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not always easy for child stars to continue their career into adulthood, or even puberty. For every Justin Timberlake, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a Debbie Gibson. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why Miley Cyrus was so excited when her songs, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Climbâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Party in the U.S.A.,â&#x20AC;? became bona fide hits on the pop charts last year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Climbâ&#x20AC;? hit No. 4 on Billboardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hot 100 chart while â&#x20AC;&#x153;Party in the U.S.A.â&#x20AC;? stopped just short of becoming the No. 1 song in the nation. While she has sold millions of records as an extension of her omnipresent Disney persona, Hannah Montana, those songs represented her biggest success to date as Miley â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and she connected with more than just the tween audience. â&#x20AC;&#x153; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Climbâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is the best thing thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ever happened to me,â&#x20AC;? Miley said in a recent interview. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It went on ... every different kind of radio. I met everyone. I met 3-yearolds, I met 30-year-olds, I met 80-year-olds. ... I got so many different fans.â&#x20AC;? The 17-year-old phenom-

enon is on her way to duplicating that success with her new album, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Be Tamed.â&#x20AC;? The albumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s title track has already hit No. 8 on the charts. But Miley is making more than a musical statement with the record. With songs like the title track and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Robot,â&#x20AC;? sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sending a message of a young woman who cannot be controlled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about breaking free, being who you are and not being afraid to tell the world to back off sometimes, and do your thing and do what makes you happy,â&#x20AC;? she said of the CD. What makes Miley

happy, however, doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always make others happy. And the more she inches to adulthood, the more critics she seems to garner for behavior deemed age inappropriate. There was the 2008 dustup over the Vanity Fair photo where it made her look topless, wrapped in a bedsheet (she says she was not). She danced with a stripper pole at the 2009 Teen

Choice Awards. This year, video surfaced of Miley giving one of the producers of her film â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Last Songâ&#x20AC;? a lap dance at the wrap party. Earlier this month she simulated a girl-on-girl kiss while performing on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Britainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Got Talent,â&#x20AC;? and on the Much Music Awards, she gyrated onstage while wearing a revealing outfit. Joan Ulrich, of Northville, Mich., worries about the affect Mileyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recent behavior will have on her young nieces. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Their mom bought them tickets to see her show and they were so excited about her. They had her videos, T-shirts, the whole thing,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then she evolves into this sex kitten and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no control with her.â&#x20AC;? But Miley brushes off her critics, deeming them unsatisfied and unhappy with their own lives. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just kind of a sad thing to think about people and how they are. I never really let it affect me,â&#x20AC;? she adds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My mom is at the side of that 10463 N.

stage and if I ever felt I was disappointing her or not making her proud, I would not do the things I do, but sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proud of me every time.â&#x20AC;? And Miley does have her supporters. Anthony Campiglia, of Clark, N.J., says the singer is doing nothing wrong by maturing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ridiculous

for people to criticize Miley for growing up. She canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t talk about puppies and lemonade forever. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s getting older and is naturally going to start acting and singing about older things,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up to parents to monitor and regulate what their kids watch.â&#x20AC;?

Following the expiration of the statutory upset bid period, all the remaining amounts will be immediately due and owing. Said property to be offered pursuant to this Notice of Sale is being offered for sale, transfer, and conveyance AS IS, WHERE IS.

Project description: 109 Greenbriar Project – which is a redevelopment of a dilapidated 20 unit apartment building to provide updated, supportive housing for the disabled, formerly homeless and low income workers earning below 50% of the Area Median Income. Total Project Cost= $1,950,000; Total NSP Cost=$1,300,000; NSP/Total Cost Percent= 67% General Location – Greensboro, NC in Guilford County, NC Specific location – 109 Greenbriar Road, Greensboro, NC 27405

North Carolina Department of Commerce has determined that the project will have no significant impact on the human environment. Therefore, an Environmental Impact Statement under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) is not required. Additional project information is contained in the Environmental Review Record (ERR) on file at 301 West Main Street, Durham, NC and also at North Carolina Division of Community Assistance, 100 E. Six Forks Road., Raleigh, NC and may be examined or copied weekdays 8 A.M. to 5 P.M. PUBLIC COMMENTS Any individual, group, or agency disagreeing with this determination or wishing to comment on the project may submit written comments to North Carolina Department of Commerce Division of Community Assistance at the above address. All comments received by July 15, 2010 will be considered by North Carolina Department of Commerce prior to authorizing submission of a request for release of funds. Comments should specify which Notice they are addressing. RELEASE OF FUNDS Commerce certifies to U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development that J. Keith Crisco, in his capacity as Secretary of Commerce consents to accept the jurisdiction of the Federal Courts if an action is brought to enforce responsibilities in relation to the environmental review process and that these responsibilities have been satisfied. HUDʼs approval of the certification satisfies its responsibilities under NEPA and related laws and authorities, and allows the North Carolina Department of Commerce to use Program funds. OBJECTIONS TO RELEASE OF FUNDS HUD will accept objections to its release of funds and the North Carolina Departments of Commerceʼs certification for a period of 15 days following July 15, 2010 or its actual receipt of the request (whichever is later) only if they are on one of the following bases: (a) the certification was not executed by the Secretary of Commerce, J.Keith Crisco; (b) the North Carolina Department of Commerce has omitted a step or failed to make a decision or finding required by HUD regulations at 24 CFR Part 58; (c) the North Carolina Department of Commerce has committed funds or incurred costs not authorized by 24 CFR Part 58 before approval of a release of funds by Commerce; or (d) another Federal agency acting pursuant to 40 CFR Part 1504 has submitted a written finding that the project is unsatisfactory from the standpoint of environmental quality. Objections must be prepared and submitted in accordance with the required procedures (24 CFR Part 58) and shall be addressed to U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development, Greensboro Field Office, 1500 Pinecroft Road, 4th Floor, Greensboro, NC 27407 or to the Division of Community Assistance at 4313 Mail Service Center, Raleigh, NC 27699-4313.

Watson wows ’em C

onsidering his 3-iron hit the driving range’s net a little more than 250 yards away, Bubba Watson’s next swings were highly anticipated. The two blasts he struck with his pink-shafted driver may still be going, lost out of sight beyond the net and the trees, much to the delight of the crowd gathered on the hill behind the range at High Point Country Club’s Willow Creek course. SPORTS After the first shot, when a gallery member complained of Steve not being able to see the ball, Hanf Watson quipped: “It was dead ■■■ straight, wasn’t it?” Wednesday’s affair at Willow Creek mixed good times and serious times with the PGA Tour star. Watson arrived in High Point just three days after his first Tour win – the Travelers Championship – to help Willow Creek’s Jim Brotherton and Colonial Country Club’s Mike O’Briant pack an extra punch with the fifth annual Junior Classic of the Triad tournament. This year’s event, the Bubba Watson Junior Classic, featured 76 golfers from ages 13 to 18. Watson purchased tee gifts that he handed out Wednesday at Colonial prior to the first round, held a 35-minute clinic/question-and-answer session at the range, and paid for the tournament dinner afterward for the players and their families. During the dinner, a check in the amount of $4,000 was presented to a group from the Boys & Girls Club of Greater High Point. It was Watson’s idea to donate part of the tournament’s $75 entry fee to charity, and his idea to match the $2,000 raised by the players. “To help these kids and raise some good money for the Boys & Girls Club, it’s been fun,” Watson said just before beginning his range demonstration. “It’s just a way for me to give back, show love for the game and show love for the kids as best we can.” The top-ranked driver this year on the PGA Tour, whose longest effort checks in at 416 yards, warmed up with a few precise iron shots. The left-hander then elicited oohs and aahs with his renowned irons that he can draw and bend on remarkable arcs. With the crowd still buzzing from the drives he hit, Willow Creek’s head profes-

It will be out with the old, in with the new at Daytona International Speedway after this weekend’s racing ends with Saturday night’s 400-mile event. Some drivers are expressing regrets about the change – the covering of the 2.5-mile track’s well-worn surface with a new layer of asphalt. The repaving was deemed necessary by track officials after the asphalt came apart and created a pothole in the west banking during the Daytona 500. The repaving will be the first for Daytona since 1978. A number of drivers like the old surface because its lack of traction makes a well-handling car and driving ability keys to success. “We like Daytona right now because you actually need to handle, you need to know how to drive the car around the bumps (in the turns) and run the right line,” Jimmie Johnson said. “Things that we do inside the car really make a difference.” The handling is made more crucial because


t’s hard to believe we flip the calendar to July today. It seems June flew by with record speed and heat. The month of July offers plenty of sizzling sports action to suit a variety of athletic tastes. The race formerly known as the Firecracker 400 goes green under the lights on Saturday at Daytona International Speedway. Also Saturday, the Tour de France puts the pedal to the metal. This cycling test features 20 stages plus the opening prologue and ends on July 25. The best professional All-Star Game by far

PGA golfer Bubba Watson talks to the crowd during a clinic for junior golfers Wednesday at Willow Creek. Watson impressed the gathering by smashing several long drives. sional – Adam Bowles – began taking questions. Watson’s first answer drew as much applause, if not more, as his shots. “As a kid, you’re supposed to have fun,” he told the players when asked about how he handled frustrations at an early age. “I pouted this week on the golf course. We’re all human. But as a kid, you shouldn’t be worried about what your score is.” Not when there are less-fortunate kids struggling daily with the necessities of life, Watson continued. He revealed that his dad once pulled him off a golf course when Watson beat a club into the ground in frustration. “Last time I did that,” Watson said before pausing: “In front of him...” In his spare time, Watson said he plays golf every chance he gets, but also has visited a water park and played laser tag in the past 10 days. “I’m just a big kid – I just happen to be 31,” he said with a grin. He and his wife, Angie, also are enjoying their new vacation house at High Rock Lake. Watson’s ties to the area date to when he was 13 years old and playing in junior tournaments with the former Marcy Newton.

Marcy Hart, the LPGA Tour player from Ledford High, also is a member at Willow Creek. “We were vacationing here (last summer) and my accountant said, ‘The economy’s not doing so good, so you need to invest in some land or something,’ ” Watson explained. “We went down to the lake and about five days later we had a house. To find a golf course: Marcy was already here, Adam Bowles is the same age as me, so we were good friends. It was an easy choice (to join at Willow Creek).” Watson will be back at the course today, handing out prizes to the winners of the 76player Junior Classic. The first round at Colonial saw three outof-town stars – Charlotte’s Wilson Trent, Salisbury’s Troy Beaver and Statesville’s Dalyn Bellingham – lead the field with evenpar 71s. Trinity teammates Dillon Shoe and Greg Mauldin were among those a shot back. Lily Crane performed quite well in the five-player girls field and owns a 10-shot lead after firing a 79. | 888-3526

the July heat helps draw oils to the surface of the asphalt. “It is like driving on ice,” Bobby Labonte said. Even though the race is a restrictor-plate event in which cars run about the same speed and can stay together for a time in the aerodynamic draft as they do the whole race at Talladega, the handling factor is so crucial that the field tends to separate into packs after 15 or so laps on new tires. “That old pavement – how it wears, what it does to the tires, how the cars drive on it and how you have to drive it as a driver – is the best,” Jeff Gordon said. “We’re going to miss that old pavement. This weekend, we’re going to try to take advantage of the old pavement, enjoy it as much as we can, and slip and slide around here like we normally do in July.” Gordon and others believe they are going to miss the old pavement because the increase in traction will allow them to stick together for the whole race as they do at Talladega. “After they repave it, it will be just like Talladega, where a bullet is going to win,” Clint

Bowyer said. “If you have a fast race car there, you can drive up to the front and make some moves in order to win.” They will be dealing with one similarity that was in play at Talladega in the spring – bigger restrictor-plate openings for the creation of more horsepower to compensate for increased aerodynamic drag resulting from the use of a spoiler instead of a wing to create rear downforce. The change resulted in a series-record 88 lead changes at Talladega. “With the bigger plate and with the spoiler on the car, the cars are going to pull up faster (in the draft) than they did before, that’s for sure,” Kevin Harvick said. “You have to let off the throttle. And it’s going to be a lot different, to be honest, because of the pull-up racing. We saw (the closing rate) was a lot faster at the Daytona 500, and now we have a bigger plate yet. It will be exciting and you will see a lot of cars passing and moving and going and doing what they did at the Daytona 500, just a little faster.”

swings into action on Tuesday, July 13, at Angel Stadium as the brightest stars of the American and National League renew their midsummer rivalry. For golfers, nothing matches the history and tradition of The Old Course at St. Andrews. And that’s the site for this year’s British Open. The third pro major runs July 15-18. Much closer to home, we get to watch some of North Carolina’s best future college stars in basketball, soccer and football at the EastWest All-Star Games in Greensboro. The action tips off on Monday, July 19, at the Greensboro Coliseum with the girls

All-Star basketball game at 6:30. The boys contest follows about 8:30 p.m. The drama shifts to UNCG Soccer Stadium on July 20. The girls game starts at 6:30 p.m., with the boys to follow. And storied Jamieson Stadium on the Grimsley High School campus caps the excitement with All-Star football on July 21 at 8 p.m. Toss in the usual big-league baseball and NFL preseason camp intrigue and July packs a red-hot sports punch. Enjoy! | 888-3519









High Point University outfielder Nate Roberts, who was selected by the Minnesota Twins in the fifth round of the 2010 Major League Baseball First Year Player Draft, signed a professional contract with the Twins. Roberts will report to Minnesota’s rookie league affiliate, the Elizabethton Twins. “We are very excited for Nate as he begins his career as a professional baseball player,” said HPU head coach Craig Cozart. “The team will certainly miss him next year but this is a credit to the hard work Nate has put in and the programs ability to develop players. He will always be a part of the HPU family and we wish him nothing but the best as he continues his career.” Post season accolades have piled up for the junior, earning second team All-America honors from ABCA and third team All-America honors from Baseball America, NCBWA and Ping!Baseball. He was also a first team All-Atlantic Region selection by the ABCA and was named to the 2010 North Carolina Collegiate Sports Information Association (NCCSIA) All-State baseball team.

Civil Rights games go to Braves

Authorities interview Woods BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Tiger Woods has been interviewed by federal authorities investigating a Canadian doctor accused of distributing human growth hormone, a person familiar with the investigation told The Associated Press on Wednesday. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the investigation of Dr. Anthony Galea is ongoing. Woods previously acknowledged that he’s been treated by the Toronto-based doctor but insisted that he did not receive any performance-enhancing drugs. “Tiger willingly spoke to the authorities and cooperated fully,” Woods’ agent, Mark Steinberg, said in an e-mail. “It was confirmed that because he did nothing illegal, he is not the subject of any criminal investigation. Because there is an ongoing investigation involving others, there will be no further comment.” The New York Times first reported Woods’ interview, citing two unidentified people. Barbara Burns, a spokeswoman for U.S. District Attorney William Hochul, declined comment. The New York Mets’ Jose Reyes and Carlos Beltran are among athletes who have said they’ve been contacted by federal investigators about Galea, who denies any wrongdoing. In April, the New York Yankees’ Alex Rodriguez met with three officials from Major League Baseball and told them he didn’t receive performance-enhancing drugs from Galea. Galea, who is not authorized to work in the United States, is accused of repeatedly entering the country to treat professional athletes from Major League Baseball, the NFL and Professional Golfers’ Association. No athletes are identified by name in the government’s criminal complaint or supporting affidavit.

Small takes pro title FRENCH LICK, Ind. (AP) — Mike Small birdied three of his last five holes to win his second straight PGA professional championship on Wednesday, holding off Sonny Skinner by three strokes. The University of Illinois men’s coach shot a 1-over 73 in his final round at French Lick Resort to finish 8 under and win his third overall PGA national title, tying Larry Gilbert’s record. Mark Sheftic, the teaching pro at Merion in Ardmore, Pa., shot a 2-under 70 to finish third at 3-under 283, Danny Balin of Burning Tree Country Club in Greenwich, Conn., shot 75 to finish fourth. The top 20 finishers earned spots in the PGA Championship on Aug. 12-15 at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin.

Reds win another in last at bat THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


CINCINNATI — Jay Bruce hit a two-run homer in the eighth inning off Roy Halladay, rallying the Cincinnati Reds to yet another win in their final at-bat Wednesday, 4-3 over the Philadelphia Phillies. Joey Votto also homered off Halladay (9-7), who fell to 2-4 since his perfect game on May 29. Jonny Gomes opened the eighth with a single, and Bruce connected for Cincinnati’s 25th comeback win — most in the majors. The Reds have 14 wins in their last atbat, tied for the major league lead. Arthur Rhodes (3-2) pitched a perfect inning, recovering from his 10th-inning loss a few hours earlier. Francisco Cordero pitched the ninth for his 21st save in 26 tries.

PIRATES 2, CUBS 0 CHICAGO — Brad Lincoln pitched seven strong innings for his first major league win, Garrett Jones had a key RBI double and Pittsburgh continued its mastery of Chicago. The last-place Pirates have beaten the Cubs nine times in 12 meetings. One-third of their victories (27) this season have come against Chicago.

SAN FRANCISCO — Matt Kemp homered and drove in three runs, Vincente Padilla won his 100th game, and Los Angeles completed a three-game sweep of the Giants. Rafael Furcal had four hits, including a home run, and drove in two for the Dodgers, who earned a sweep in San Francisco for the first time in three years.

PADRES 13, ROCKIES 3 SAN DIEGO — Clayton Richard struck out a career-high 10 and drove in two runs, and Scott Hairston hit a three-run double and finished with four RBIs as San Diego routed Colorado to avoid a threegame sweep.

BRAVES 4, NATIONALS 1 ATLANTA — Jair Jurrjens gave up one run and had a run-scoring single in his first start in two months, and the Atlanta Braves beat the Washington Nationals 4-1 on Wednesday night. Jurrjens (1-3) gave up six hits and one run in five innings in his first major league start since injuring his left hamstring on April 29.


Arizona five solid innings as the fill-in for Edwin Jackson and Chris Young hit a two-run home run in a victory over St. Louis that avoided a three-game sweep.

ASTROS 5, BREWERS 1 MILWAUKEE — Wandy Rodriguez pitched seven solid innings and executed a perfect suicide squeeze bunt to snap a tie in the sixth inning to lead Houston over Milwaukee. Chris Johnson had his second four-hit game in six days for the Astros, including a two-run double in the seventh that made it 4-1.

MARINERS 7, YANKEES 0 NEW YORK — Felix Hernandez followed Cliff Lee with a gem of his own, pitching a two-hitter, and the Seattle Mariners secured their first road series win since April with a 7-0 victory over the New York Yankees on Wednesday night.

TWINS 5, TIGERS 1 MINNEAPOLIS — Justin Morneau homered and drove in two runs, Kevin Slowey went six innings and the Twins topped the Tigers 5-1 on Wednesday to improve to 19-10 against the AL Central this year.

Pitching, defense sparked Gamecocks OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — It was said often during the College World Series that it isn’t necessarily the best team that wins the national championship but the team that plays the best baseball. That rings especially true to Ray Tanner, who described his South Carolina Gamecocks as a good but not great team even after they swept UCLA in the finals. “We’ve been a really, really special baseball team that approached it the right way and found a way to win and never gave in, never gave up,” Tanner said. “And it was real. It wasn’t just talk. And when we did have some adversity, they flushed it rather quickly and got back up.” The Gamecocks (54-16) won their first national championship in a men’s sport Tuesday with their 2-1, 11-inning victory. Whit Merrifield’s RBI single decided the final CWS game to be played at Rosenblatt Stadium. The event moves from Rosenblatt, the home of the CWS since 1950, to a new downtown stadium next year.


South Carolina players celebrate after teammate Scott Wingo scored the winning run against UCLA on a single by Whit Merrifield on Tuesday night to give the Gamecocks the College World Series title. South Carolina won in the 11th inning of game two of the best-of-three series. South Carolina clearly wasn’t as dominant as champions such as the Southern California teams of the 1970s, the 1983 Texas Longhorns or the LSU Tigers of the 1990s. The Gamecocks were Southeastern Conference runners-up, and they went two games and out at the SEC tournament. They trailed all three of their regional games and had to win a pair of one-run games against Coastal

Carolina in the super regional. Relative to other teams in the offensive-fueled college game, the Gamecocks’ numbers were modest. Their .300 team average ranked 173rd out of 292 Division I teams. They were 125th in scoring. Though they were 12th in home runs, with 97, the most by one player were Jackie Bradley’s 13. Bradley’s team-leading

Post 87 gets No. 4 seed in playoffs ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

THOMASVILLE – The American Legion Baseball playoffs open tonight with the High Point Post 87 Junior HiToms facing a tougher trip to the state tournament than hoped.

Post 87 ended up as the No. 4 seed for Area III North after losing out on a tie-breaker with Burlington-Graham Post 63 and Randolph County Post 45. In head-to-head competition, Burlington was 3-1, Randolph 2-2 and Post 87 1-3. Western Forsyth is No.

1 and faces No. 8 WinstonSalem. The fifth seed, Surry County, opens against Post 87 tonight at 6:30 at Finch Field in a best-of-three series. Kernersville, seeded sixth, plays Randolph, while No. 7 Thomasville-Davidson takes on Burlington.

.368 average didn’t even rank among the top 250, and his 60 RBIs were 167th. But Bradley, the Most Outstanding Player in Omaha, had a CWS-high nine RBIs in seven games, hit .345 (10 for 29) and extended his hitting streak to 22 games before he went 0 for 5 on Tuesday night. South Carolina batted .284 in Omaha, the lowest average by a national champion since Oregon State hit .281 in 2006.

ATLANTA (AP) — The Atlanta Braves will host Major League Baseball’s Civil Rights Games in 2011-12, team president John Schuerholz announced Wednesday at the King Center. No dates or opponents have been set for the games, which will be played during the next two regular seasons. The 2009-10 games were held in Cincinnati. Jimmie Lee Solomon, MLB’s executive vice president for baseball development, called Atlanta, the home of slain civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr., an easy choice as the host city. Though it has yet to announce an agenda for the Atlanta event, MLB hopes to create greater presence for baseball in the black community. MLB released a report last month stating that black players accounted for just 9 percent of major league rosters in 2009. Latino players accounted for 27 percent and Asian players 2.3 percent. “Jackie Robinson integrated baseball in 1947,” Solomon said. “That was before the armed forces, Brown v. Board of Education, it was before Rosa Parks refused to sit at the back of the bus. Sometimes that is forgotten because of the work of Dr. King and so many other civil rights activist. Jackie’s integration into Major League Baseball created a grand experiment for our society.”

U.S., Japan stay unbeaten CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — Jennie Finch hit a grand slam to lead the United States to a 16-1 victory against Canada and remain unbeaten in the world softball championships on Wednesday. The United States and Japan, which beat Venezuela 2-0 earlier in the day, are both 80 heading into their matchup Thursday in the double-elimination playoff phase of the tournament. Venezuela plays the winner of China and Taiwan on Thursday. The finals are Friday and Japan and the U.S. are the overwhelming favorites to play for the title. Japan defeated the United States in the final game in the 2008 Olympics to take gold. “Any time we play Japan, it’s a tough game,” pitcher Monica Abbott said. “We’ll be ready for them.” The defending world champion U.S. started fast against Canada with a three-run double by Alissa Haber in the first inning. Natasla Watley added a tworun double to center in the second.

Federer upset in Wimbledon quarterfinals WIMBLEDON, England (AP) — For the first time in eight years, Roger Federer won’t be striding onto Centre Court for the Wimbledon final. The six-time champion was upset in the quarterfinals by big-hitting Tomas Berdych on Wednesday, stopping his bid for a record-tying seventh title at the All England Club and extending his recent stretch of disappointing play. The 12th-seeded Berdych used his big serve and forehand to beat Federer 6-4, 3-6, 6-1, 6-4, on Centre Court for the biggest victory of the Czech’s career. Berdych will meet No. 3 Novak Djokovic for a spot in the final, with No. 2 Rafael Nadal facing No. 4 Andy Murray in the other semifinal. It’s the first time since 2002 that Federer has failed to reach the final. Since losing in the first round eight years ago, Federer had played in the championship match a record seven consecutive times. He won the title six times and finished runner-up once, bolstering his reputation as the greatest player of all-time. Winner of a record 16 Grand Slam titles, Federer said he was unable to play his best tennis Wednesday because of pain in his back and right leg. “I couldn’t play the way I wanted to play,” said

Federer, who had been chasing the record of seven titles won by Pete Sampras and 19th-century player William Renshaw. “I am struggling with a little bit of a back and a leg issue. That just doesn’t quite allow me to play the way I would like to play. It’s frustrating, to say the least.” Berdych said he didn’t notice anything wrong with Federer. “I don’t know if he is just looking for some excuses after the match or something like that,” he said. “I think he was 100 percent ready.” Berdych ripped a clean forehand winner on his second match point to become the first Czech to reach the men’s semifinals since Ivan Lendl in 1990. “Not many other moments can compare to this one,” Berdych said. Berdych will next face Djokovic, who swept past Yen-hsun Lu in straight sets to reach the semifinals for the second time. The third-seeded Djokovic never faced a break point as he beat the 82ndranked Taiwanese player 6-3, 6-2, 6-2 in less than two hours on Court 1. Nadal, who beat Federer in the 2008 final, lost the first five games of the match but rallied to defeat No. 6 Robin Soderling 3-6, 6-3, 7-6 (4), 6-1. It was a rematch of this year’s French Open final, which the Spaniard also won.


Roger Federer waves farewell to the Centre Court crowd as he leaves following his quarterfinal loss to Tomas Berdych at the All England Lawn Tennis Championships at Wimbledon on Wednesday.

Williams sisters fall in doubles WIMBLEDON, England (AP) — The bid by Venus and Serena Williams for a fifth consecutive Grand Slam title in doubles ended Wednesday with a loss in the Wimbledon quarterfinals. The sisters were beaten 3-6, 63, 6-4 by Russians Elena Vesnina and Vera Zvonareva. The Williamses climbed to No. 1 in doubles for the first time after

Free agents could shift NBA landscape NEW YORK (AP) — This summer’s biggest show in sports, kicking off at 12:01 a.m. Thursday, comes from a league that won’t play for months. It’s called “LeBron James: Free Agent.” The two-time MVP known more aptly than ever as the King is one of the most sought-after players to hit the market in the NBA — or any sport. Teams have spent years jockeying to get themselves in position for this moment — slashing their payrolls and even enlisting high-profile sympathizers ranging from a music superstar to a singing governor. James, who has played for the Cleveland Cavaliers since turning pro directly out of high school seven years ago, is the biggest prize in perhaps the NBA’s deepest free agency class ever, a crop of star players who could change the course of basketball with their decisions. “I think the landscape could really shift,” former Phoenix general manager Steve Kerr said. Dwyane Wade and

Chris Bosh, James’ classmates from the 2003 draft — and future teammates in Miami if they choose — are among this year’s free agents. So are perennial All-Stars such as Dirk Nowitzki, Amare Stoudemire and Joe Johnson. “We’ve never had anything like this in my time that I can remember,” New Jersey Nets president Rod Thorn said. “There have been big-time free agents before, but never this many teams that are trying to woo them. So it’s unprecedented.” So is the hype. Talk of James’ destination seems to change by the minute, considered a lock for Chicago in one report, then seemingly guaranteed to head to Miami in another. The rumor mill spun so out of control that an online sports book simply stopped taking action on James’ next team. Bottom line: James can get perhaps $125 million over six years by staying in Cleveland; $96 million over five years if he goes. (The exact figures can’t be determined until next

season’s salary cap is set in July). But leaving could put him in a better position to win a championship. Thorn is headed to Ohio, where James will welcome suitors to his home state Thursday. He’ll be joined by new Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov, coach Avery Johnson and hip-hop superstar Jay-Z, a partowner and James’ longtime friend. Then it’s back home for Prokorov and Johnson, minus Jay-Z, to make pitches the next day in New York to Wade and Bosh. The Knicks plan to drop in on James, too. They can afford to pay him and another player the NBA maximum next season, which might be what the Knicks need to finally get going again after a franchise-record nine straight losing seasons. “We’ve had to live through some tough times in order to get where you think you start rebuilding the franchise,” team president Donnie Walsh said. “We have that opportunity

winning the French Open. They were bidding for their 13th major championship. Serena, who will play in the semifinals of singles Thursday, wore a bandage on her right shoulder. Zvonareva is in the semifinals of singles for the first time, and they could meet in the final. The match turned when Venus


BOSTON (AP) — Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers will return for another season, staying with the team he led to the NBA finals twice in three years for a run at another championship. “Doc is a fantastic coach and leader and I am thrilled he is coming back for the upcoming season,” Celtics co-owner Steve Pagliuca said Wednesday in an e-mail to The Associated Press. Rivers’ decision was first reported in the Boston Herald. Four hours later, the Celtics released a statement confirming Rivers would return. now. How well, how fast we can rebuild the team can be shortcut by getting great players.” They’ll have plenty of competition. The Heat, Nets, Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Clippers also can afford to offer a player about $16.6 million next season, which is the maximum someone with James’ amount of NBA experience can make. Chicago and New Jersey made trades in recent days to push them closer to joining the Knicks with enough to offer two max deals, and the Heat can keep Wade, give an additional max contract and have enough left over for another quality player.

double-faulted on break point in the second set, giving the Russians a 4-2 lead. Serena lost serve in the third game of the final set, and the sisters didn’t manage a break in the last two sets. The defeat was only the fifth in 60 matches for the Williamses over the past three years. They fell to 29-2 at Wimbledon.

Chandler staying; Felton might leave Bobcats CHARLOTTE (AP) –Tyson Chandler is staying in Charlotte — for now. Tyrus Thomas is likely back — at least for one more season. Raymond Felton, though, may have played his final game with the Bobcats, which could lead to a flurry of activity to shore up the backcourt. While not a factor in the LeBron James, Dwyane Wade or Chris Bosh sweepstakes, the Michael Jordan-owned Bobcats face some intrigue of their own as free agency begins Thursday. The first question was solved Wednesday morning, when agent Jeff Schwartz told the Bobcats their center Chandler wouldn’t opt out of the final year of his deal and become an unrestricted free agent. Chandler had been hoping to get a contract extension, but the Bobcats declined. With uncertainty surrounding the terms of the next labor agreement, Chandler and his representatives considered forfeiting $12.7 million due next season and search for a longterm deal elsewhere. But the 7-foot-1 Chandler, who was held to 50 games last season and 45 the year before in New

Orleans because of foot and ankle injuries, didn’t have bargaining power. While it means the Bobcats keep their depth at center, they’re also strapped for salary-cap space with Chandler’s contract. After giving Thomas a one-year, $6.2 million qualifying offer to make him a restricted free agent, the Bobcats have nearly $67 million committed to 11 players for next season. That includes an extra $1 million for bonuses Gerald Wallace received for making the All-Star team ($500,000) and all-defensive team ($500.000) that will count toward next season’s cap. With the luxury tax projected to kick in around $68-69 million — and with Jordan stating publicly he won’t exceed it — Felton’s future in Charlotte looks bleak. His uneven career — and major struggles in the playoffs — don’t help him, either. Felton averaged 12.1 points and 5.6 assists while shooting a careerbest 46 percent from the field last season. But he was then thoroughly outplayed by Orlando’s Jameer Nelson in Charlotte’s first-round playoff sweep.

Brind’Amour retires, moves to ’Canes front office RALEIGH (AP) — Rod Brind’Amour is retiring after 21 NHL seasons to take an unspecified frontoffice job with the Carolina Hurricanes. The team’s former captain said Wednesday that his decision was made simpler after he talked with general manager Jim Rutherford and they decided the aging veteran wouldn’t fit with the Hurricanes’ rebuilding plan. Trying to find a roster spot on another team

“never, ever felt right,” he said, and Rutherford asked him to remain with the organization in some ‘Amour capacity. “The only question would be how much do I want to play” for another team, Brind’Amour said. “When I knew for sure the direction the team was going and I wasn’t going to be a part of it

as a player, and (Rutherford) said, ’We want you to come on and do whatever — we’ll figure that out. Just be a part of our organization.’ “I said, ’I’m done. It’s over,”’ he added. “I don’t want to go play anymore, and certainly don’t want to play anywhere else.” Brind’Amour would have made $3 million in 2010-11, the final year of his contract. The Hurricanes had the option to buy out his contract

for $2 million, and Rutherford said they will pay him $1 million this year and $1 million next year, in addition to the salary for his new job. The GM said Brind’Amour is getting married in a few weeks, and after he returns from his honeymoon, the two will sit down to figure out what his new responsibilities will be. “This is not just a gift to him at this point in his career,” Rutherford said.

“I feel very strongly that Rod’s got a lot to offer the Hurricanes, as he’s already done.” The decision wasn’t entirely unexpected. The captain of Carolina’s 2006 Stanley Cup championship team, Brind’Amour turns 40 in August. Nearly three months ago, he wrapped up his worst statistical season in which he yielded his captaincy to Eric Staal and slipped to the team’s fourth line. The Hurricanes’ lead-

ing scorer since the franchise moved from Hartford in 1997, Brind’Amour had just nine goals and 10 assists last season. He finished his career with 452 goals and 732 assists in 1,484 regular-season games over 21 years with St. Louis, Philadelphia and Carolina. Additionally, he had 51 goals and 60 assists in 159 career playoff games, and scored 12 goals during the Hurricanes’ run to their only Cup.

Senate plan extends homebuyer credit WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Democrats are working on a new way to jump-start their stalled election-year jobs agenda while saving unemployment benefits for hundreds of thousands of laid-off workers. The plan combines in one bill the unemployment benefits with an extension of a popular tax credit for people who buy new homes. Under current law, homebuyers who signed purchase agreements by April 30 must close on their new homes by Wednesday to qualify for credits of up to $8,000. The bill would give those buyers until Sept. 30 to complete the purchases and qualify for the credit. Democrats hope to pick



Panel reviewing vehicle acceleration WASHINGTON (AP) — The government’s highway safety agency wants a scientific panel to help it learn whether electronics are to blame for vehicles suddenly accelerating in the aftermath of Toyota’s massive recalls. A National Academy of Sciences panel is holding its first meeting Wednesday to review the potential causes of unintended acceleration in vehicles across the auto industry. The study is expected to last until late 2011.

Oil prices rise as supplies fall NEW YORK (AP) - Oil prices were little changed as supplies fell 2 million barrels last week to 363.1 million barrels, according to the Energy Department’s Energy Information Administration. Benchmark crude for August delivery rose 15 cents to $76.09 a barrel in early trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

Monsanto sags on weak Roundup sales KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Monsanto Co., the world’s biggest seed maker, said Wednesday its fiscal third-quarter net income dropped 45 percent as customers continue to shun its Roundup weedkiller in favor of cheaper generic versions. As Roundup sales have flagged, Monsanto last year said it was accelerating its long-term strategy to shift the majority of its business from chemicals and herbicides to genetically altered seeds.


up Republican support for the bill by combining the two provisions. They have been trying for weeks to pass an extension of unemployment benefits as part of a larger tax and spending package, but the larger bill died in the Senate last week. Without an extension, unemployment payments would continue to be phased out for more than 200,000 people a week. Many Democrats see the benefits as insurance against the economy sliding back into recession. Many Republicans, however, worry that adding nearly $34 billion to the budget deficit will only contribute to the nation’s economic problems. “Both sides have offered

ways to address the programs in this bill that we agree should be extended,” said Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky. “The only difference is that Democrats are demanding that we add the cost to an already unsustainable $13 trillion national debt.” Republicans want to pay for the unemployment benefits with unspent money from last year’s massive economic recovery package. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., filed a motion Tuesday to end debate on the bill and force a vote by Thursday — if Democrats can round up the necessary 60 votes to end a Republican filibuster.

Mortgage applications rise 9 percent WASHINGTON (AP) — Applications for mortgages rose last week as consumers refinanced their loans at the lowest rates in more than 50 years. Overall applications increased nearly 9 percent from a week earlier, the Mortgage Bankers Association said Wednesday. But the growth in borrowing came from applications to refinance home loans and not to make new purchases. Refinancings were up 13 percent, the highest level since May 2009. But they remain about half the level of early 2009, partly because many people who wanted and were able to refinance have already done so. Refinancing costs can total several thousand dollars.

New mortgages taken out to purchase homes fell 4 percent. They were 36 percent below last year’s levels. The average rate for a 30-year fixed loan sank to 4.69 percent last week, according to Freddie Mac. That was the lowest since the since the mortgage company began keeping records in 1971. Refinances made up nearly 77 percent of all mortgage activity last week. That’s up from 74 percent a week earlier. Mortgage rates have fallen over the past two months. Investors, nervous about Europe’s debt crisis and the global economy, have shifted money into safe Treasury bonds. That has caused Treasury yields to fall and mortgage rates track those yields.

Jobless rates drop in most metro areas WASHINGTON (AP) — Unemployment rates in roughly two-thirds of the nation’s largest metropolitan areas dipped in May as the gradual economic recovery spurred some hiring. The Labor Department says the jobless rates dropped in 237 of 382 areas in May from April. It rose in 118 areas and was flat in 27. The figures aren’t adjusted to account for seasonal trends, such as lifeguards hired during the

summer or retail clerks let go after the holiday shopping season. So they tend to be volatile from month to month. Among the places seeing large declines in their jobless rates are Ocean City, N.J., Sandusky, Ohio, and Springfield, Ill. By contrast, areas in Louisana — hit by the BP oil spill — saw gains. Those includes Baton Rouge, New Orleans-MetairieKenner and HoumaBayou Cane-Thibodaux.

Stocks end rough quarter NEW YORK (AP) – The stock market closed out a painful second quarter Wednesday and left investors with heavy losses and far more doubts about the economy than they had just months ago. Stocks had their worst quarterly performance since the financial crisis. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index, considered by many professional investors to be the best measure of the market’s health, lost 11.9 percent, while the Dow Jones industrial average lost 10 percent. Both indexes are at their lows for 2010. Meanwhile, Treasury notes and bonds soared during the quarter, driving interest rates sharply lower, as investors turning away from stocks sought a place where their money would be safe. In the early days of the quarter, the yield on the Treasury’s 10-year note, used as a base for setting rates on consumer loans including mortgages, was close to 4 percent. By the quarter’s end, it had fallen to 2.94 percent. The Dow fell 96.28, or 1 percent, to 9,774.02. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index fell 10.53, or 1 percent, to 1,030.71, while the Nasdaq composite index fell 25.94, or 1.2 percent, to 2,109.24. Losing stocks outnumbered gainers on the New York Stock Exchange by about 2 to 1. Consolidated volume came to 5.3 billion shares, compared with 6.3 billion on Tuesday.

Boeing buys Argon for $775 million ST. LOUIS (AP) — Boeing announced it will buy combat engineering firm Argon ST for about $775 million Wednesday, reflecting a shift by defense contractors seeking to accommodate a Pentagon that now wants high-tech intelligence tools as much or more than big guns and heavy armor. The Pentagon is cutting some big weapons meant for conventional wars out of the budget while it shops for technology better suited to fight against shadowy insurgent groups in places like Iraq and Afghanistan. Argon ST Inc. is a Fairfax, Va., company that

develops a variety of systems used in surveillance, reconnaissance and combat. Boeing’s defense unit CEO Dennis Muilenburg said Argon will “significantly accelerate our capabilities in sensors, communications technologies and information management.” Boeing gets roughly half of its revenue from government defense, space and security contracts. It makes fighter jets, cargo planes and is expected to compete against Airbus parent European Aeronautic Defence and Space Co. for a $35 billion contract to build a new fleet of refueling jets.

Ford Motor Co. to repay more debt DETROIT (AP) — Ford Motor Co., the only Detroit automaker to avoid bankruptcy protection, said Wednesday it will reduce its huge debt by another $4 billion as it continues to show signs of financial strength. The Dearborn, Mich., automaker will pay $3.8 billion in cash to a United Auto Workers trust fund that pays retiree health care bills, and it will pay out $255 million in divi-

dends on preferred securities that had been deferred as the automaker worked its way through financial troubles. The company now will make quarterly payments on the securities, which are a combinaton of preferred stock and bonds. Ford CEO Alan Mulally said in a statement that the payments are another sign of confidence that the company’s restructuring plan is working.



WTO rules aid for Airbus illegal GENEVA (AP) — The World Trade Organization ruled Wednesday that European governments gave planemaker Airbus illegal subsidies in its battle with U.S. competitor Boeing Co., in a first key ruling on a long-running dispute between the European Union and Washington. Made public three months after it was delivered to U.S. and EU trade officials, the WTO’s decision runs 1,061 pages over the question of whether the European Union unfairly abetted Airbus’ rise to world No. 1 planemaker.

Ex-AIG exec says he was truthful WASHINGTON (AP) — A former top executive of American International Group Inc. says he told the truth about the company’s losses while defending its compensation plan. Joseph Cassano, who led AIG’s key Financial Products division, is expected to tell a special panel Wednesday that he did “my very best” to estimate the losses accurately ahead of the financial crisis, according to prepared testimony. AIG received

$182 billion in bailout money. Cassano and other executives of AIG and Goldman Sachs Group Inc. are appearing before the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission, a bipartisan panel created by Congress to examine issues surrounding the crisis. The hearing focuses on derivatives, the complex instruments at the heart of the meltdown. It also is examining the relationship between the two gi-

ant companies and the derivatives trades they made leading up to the crisis. “I was truthful at all times about the unrealized accounting losses and did my very best to estimate them accurately,” Cassano said in his prepared testimony. It was Cassano’s first public testimony since the financial crisis erupted that pushed AIG, one of the world’s largest insurance companies, to the brink of collapse.

Delta says it’s ready for union elections NEW YORK (AP) — Delta Air Lines CEO Richard Anderson said Wednesday his company “is ready to move on” with union elections that are expected to follow an impending rule change. But the company said it will stand with the Air Transport Association, a trade group representing major airlines, if it decides to appeal the ruling that would make it easier for workers to unionize. The rule change is set to take effect Thursday. A federal judge last week upheld a ruling by the National Mediation Board that said it would recognize a union if a simple majority of workers vote for it. The old rule required a majority of the entire work force to vote yes.
