Two more arrested in beauty shop robbery

TWO DAYS LEFT TO MEET THE CHALLENGE The Times/Parks and Recreation Food Challenge is more than 4,000 items away from its goal! Help us help our neighbors in need!

BY ELIOT DUKE Staff Writer

Thomasville Police Department continues making arrests in connection to last month’s robbery of a local beauty salon. With two suspects already in custody, TPD announced the arrest of two more people believed to be involved in the Dec. 17 robbery of Total Beauty Supply at 210 National Highway. Michael Antwaan Cobb, 23, of 201 White St., and Kimani Chepel Davis, 18, of 113 Larkspur, were taken into custody earlier in the week and charged for their role in the robbery. Cobb is charged with felony robbery with a dangerous weapon and is believed to be the one who produced a small caliber handgun during the crime. He was placed in the Davidson County Detention Center and issued a $50,000 secured bond. Davis is charged with felony aiding and abetting an armed robbery and was placed in the detention center with no bond. “They went in, one individual displayed a weapon and a lot of clothing and a wallet was taken,” Det. Steve Truell said. “We recovered the wallet and half the clothing.” On Dec. 20, TPD arrested Jesean Terrell Gillins, 21, of 201 White St., and Jasmond Tyjuan Gillins, 20, of 2711 Ridgeview Court in High Point, and charged the brothers with felony robbery with a dangerous weapon. Truell said TPD received information regarding some of the stolen property and executed a search warrant at 201

Staff Writer Thomasville Police Department ushered in a new era Wednesday afternoon at a swearing in ceremony of three veteran officers. In an effort to create a more efficient and accessible department, new police chief Jeff Insley announced a restructuring plan several weeks ago that will focus on the creation of four bureaus within TPD. Leading three of the bureaus will be newly promoted officers Maj. James Mills, Capt. Darren Smith and Capt. Loren Wesley. Mills was promoted from captain to major with Smith and Wesley moving from lieutenant to captain. “These picks were very difficult,” Insley said. “I look forward to all of us working together to take this agency to the

next level. This team will lead us forward over the next few years. It’s nice having the administrative team in place finally. We can start moving forward and I’m excited about it.” Maj. Mills will serve as Chief of Staff, overseeing the duties of the Administrative Operations Bureau. Mills, a five-year veteran of the United States Air Force, joined TPD in 1981. In his nearly three decades with the department, Mills has served as Community Policing Coordinator and Training Director, and

three of his five children along with her own five children. Ray also has taken in and raised several children over the last 40 years who have been victims of neglect or abuse. “I pray to God every day to help me to bless somebody — a child or a senior,” Ray said. “I just have a heart for children and for people that need help.” Ray, who is nearly 70 years old, says she loves to cook. She often gives meals to elderly or ill members of the community, and she invites any friend or family member to come eat in

is now overseeing the daily operations of both the patrol and detective division. In 2000, Mills received the N.C. Governors Crime Prevention Award for Excellence. Mills also is a member of the International Chiefs of Police. Insley said Mills will be responsible for the day-to-day operations of the department. “This is a good day for all of us,” said Mills. “We’ve all worked hard getting to where we’re at and we owe a lot to those who came before us. There’s a vision for the future and [Insley] is counting on us to help obtain the goals he has set for the department.” Wesley will become captain of the Patrol and Field Operations Bureau. Capt. Wesley came to TPD in 1989 and has worked in the patrol, detectives and vice

LEXINGTON — In a joint meeting Tuesday, The Davidson County Board of Commissioners and the Lexington City Council approved incentives for companies that could bring more than 350 jobs and $30 million to the county. Both companies are considering relocation or expansion in Lexington, said Steve Googe, director of the Davidson County Economic Development Commission. “These are very substantial companies that have a track record of very consistent growth,” Googe said. “A lot of people are now seeing that maybe there’s some value to coming here, because it looks like our economy is going to start to turn.” The two governing bodies held public hearings at Davidson County Community College, inviting input from local citizens and officials. Googe presented the proposed incentive packages during the hearings. Project Lynx plans to invest about $20 million in a new plant, machinery and equipment and create 42 new jobs over three years. An additional 18 to 20 more jobs likely will be created from one of the company’s vendors, he said, and another vendor may even follow the company to locate here. Googe says the company intends to start construction on a facility in the next three months and be operational within one year. County commissioners and city council approved an economic development grant of $145,833.33 each year for 12 years, to be split equally between Davidson County and the city of Lexington.

Pet blood donors get services for reduced cost EVERYDAY CHEAPSKATE

MARY HUNT Syndicated Columnist

Every time I think to myself that I���ve probably heard every timesaving and moneysaving tip, mail comes that proves me wrong. Today’s winner of our Tip of the Month contest falls into that category. What a great idea!

TIP OF THE MONTH. Many people don’t know that dogs and cats need blood sometimes to save their lives, too! There is a 24-hour pet emergency hospital in my town that gives you significant savings if it is able to use your dog or cat as a blood donor. There are age, weight and other restrictions that apply, but my dog receives regular vet care for free. We also get 40 percent off our medications and emergency care for that pet. — Dawn D., Indiana

FLEE, FLEAS! Instead of buying an expensive flea shampoo, buy a small bottle of baby shampoo and add two tablespoons of orange or lemon juice. It’s a great natural flea shampoo with power even the priciest products can’t beat. Citric acid is the flea killer in many of those products. Avoid getting it in your pet’s eyes, and let it sit for a few minutes. Rinse thoroughly. Your pup will smell fresh, too! — Karen L., California ICE PACK. Instead of buying an expensive ice pack for injuries, mix equal parts of water and rubbing alcohol in a quart-size freezer bag and freeze it. It makes a slushy ice pack (alcohol does not freeze) that conforms to whatever needs to be iced. It can be refrozen and used again and again. — Patty D., e-mail (Editor’s Note: Double-bag the liquid, and be sure to label the bag clearly so a child doesn’t assume this might be a tasty treat.) SWIFT CHOPPING. I broke my nut chopper last Christmas, and because I seldom use it, I have yet to replace it. The other day, I was making an apple cake

that needed chopped nuts, and the thought occurred to me to try using the “apple wheel,” the gadget that cores and slices apples. It worked beautifully! I had control over the nuts in a glass pie plate, and there was no mess. Also, it worked much faster than a knife! — Eri G., Texas CHANGE CUP. I bought a digital coin bank that fits like a coffee cup in my car’s cup holder. Now I have a handy place to put my spare change, and the bank keeps track of the balance. I plan to donate the money at the end of the year. It will be fun to see how quickly this change adds up! — Christana F., California Would you like to send a tip to Mary?

Billy Parham, director of the homeless shelter, is also pictured. Instead of giving gifts to each other during the holiday, the 46 staff decided to give back to the community and solicited help from those around them. “The community has been quite supportive of us,” said Janna Stowe.“ So, when it was suggested we help out the Shepherd’s Inn, the staff got behind the idea 101 percent! Everyone from our unit gave at least one item. We have already decided that we will not be doing this just once a year. This is not only a remarkable staff of trained medical professionals, but a truly compassionate group. Just knowing we have made a small difference really made the holidays for us all.”

MARILYN TAYLOR Business Columnist

This time of year is all about fresh starts, new beginnings, hopes and dreams. The number of subject lines carrying those words into my inbox has exploded like midnight at Times Square on New Year’s Rockin Eve.. At this point, our slates may look blank for the year, or they may be already covered over. Either way, there’s still time. Time to engage in a time-honored tradition of declaring what it is we are going to do differently - this time. An innovative way to think about setting goals for the new year is introduced in the Book Choice Points, by Sydney Rice. In her personal, professional growth primer, Ms. Rice outlines five different panels that offer rich new insights into how to get where we want to go. Her constructs are innovative and likely different from other experiences you may have had. Take the first panel for instance – GOALS. Here’s an excerpt that explains how Choice Points (Rice, 2004) approaches long term goals: “The long term goals we set in the PaperRoom are for twenty years in the future. The areas you want to look at and include are health, finances, home, vocation, avocation, relationships, family community and spirituality. Remember this is what you want, not necessarily what you think is possible.” Twenty years out? Goals that may or may not be possible? While you may be initially skeptical of any benefit to be derived here, this exercise has proven to be extremely beneficial for managers, executives, entrepreneurs and a host of other willing learners. This high level view really does free one to dream and after all, dreams are the genesis of accomplishments. This prescribed take on long term goals also

sets up the other side of the panel, which includes an exercise with short term goals. The rules change sharply as the time frame shrinks to 12-18 months and participants are encouraged to set goals that are specific and time bound. Here is the way Ms. Rice talks about the short term side: “These need to be clear, no-nonsense goals: how many, how much and by when. The kinds of things you want to put on your on your short term goals list are the things you want or need to get done yet have no current history of accomplishing, the things you have been putting off or not getting around to. Examples might include having that difficult conversation you have been avoiding, getting out the report that is overdue, bringing your resume up to date, exercising three times a week….” Writing them down brings in an accountability piece, as does working with a coach or colleague. But there’s more. Four other pieces of this panel system, called the PaperRoom System™, help us see what may have stopped us in the past, or may be determining how we think about and go about our tasks. In the coming weeks, we will explore the other panels through this column and see what they offer in the

way of making us and 2010 ALL that can be. One more thing about the panel called GOALS. In between the two lists of long term and short term goals, there are three little replicas of ‘post-it’ notes captioned with the word NOW. An immediate goal, one that be reached today, is a sure fire way to get energized and produce needed clarity. So let’s end with that thought: What is it you are looking for TODAY?

Flying with the enemy VIEWPOINT

DAVID HARSANYI Syndicated Columnist When comedian Joan Rivers was booted off a flight from Costa Rica to Newark, N.J., this past weekend, it was not because she had perpetrated crimes against the human appearance. Rather, it was because she was a potential security risk. In a recent column, my assertion that airport security should ignore most of us and focus on bad actors (not the Joan Rivers variety of bad actor, though one sympathizes), who tend to originate from disagreeable locales (not Hollywood) and affiliate themselves with a religious denomination (not Scientology), provoked a torrent of livid e-mails to land in my inbox. One perturbed writer, an American Muslim, encapsulated the thoughts of many by accusing me of “encouraging ... racist profiling,” calling that “inexcusable and ignorant.” This sentiment also was found in the progressive blogosphere as a reaction to any mention of ethnic or religious profiling. Evidently, the Obama administration — despite unleashing a barrage of euphemistic rationalizations — is also a nest of boorish, racist sentiment, as it instructed airports to profile travelers en route to the United States from 14 countries, most of which share some vague thematic connection. They include Pakistan, Yemen, Syria, Saudi Arabia et al. It is a shame that anyone has to endure questioning or pat-downs or worse at airports, but the fact is that those who are behind terrorism have, by large margins, originated from these 14 nations. (Islam, incidentally, is not a race; it is a faith. So there is nothing “racist” about criticizing it or its adherents, most of whom — need it be repeated — are peaceful.) No serious person in this nation has insinuated that Islamic religious freedoms should be infringed or curtailed. Yet if these indignant letter writers were interested in unearthing honest-to-goodness inexcusable ignorance,

widespread dehumanization and institutionalized xenophobia, they could find it in abundance in any run-ofthe-mill Muslim theocracy, monocracy or autocracy. There are many to choose from. That reality, of course, is none of our business, as a matter of policy. Protecting citizens from foreign threats, on the other hand, is. Understandably, this has unfurled a complex situation. Are we overreacting? What is an appropriate level of interrogation? When is war justified? What rights do enemy combatants have? Fair debates, no doubt. But a person can oppose waterboarding or war or foreign entanglements or nation building and still accept that certain countries and religions harbor “militants” — even if such a militant makes a stopover in Frankfurt. Yet ... the excuse-making. The tiptoeing. Terrorism is now a “man-caused disaster.” The Fort Hood terrorist was just stressed out after learning about a deployment to Iraq — you know, after he voluntarily joined the Army. Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the crotch bomber, was, according to the president, an “isolated extremist” — which is true, if he means the extremism is isolated to a few million people. Obama went on to talk about the “crushing poverty” of Yemen, insinuating that neediness is a root of mancaused disasters — though the underwear bomber came from a wealthy and educated family and the “crushing poverty” of Haiti has yet to compel that nation’s young men to stuff explosives down their pants. The American-Arab AntiDiscrimination Committee complained that singling out a group of people is “extreme and very dangerous. All of a sudden people are labeled as being related to terrorism just because of the nation they are from.” Well, I hate to break it to them, but Americans already relate terrorism to the nations that terrorists always seem to come from. And if there’s a better way to keep extremists off planes, I’d love to hear it.

The lady and the bracelet VIEWPOINT

SUSAN ESTRICH Syndicated Columnist We got to the airport two hours early. My daughter made fun of me. Maui is not a likely terrorist target. Then again, the president was about one minute away in Oahu, and so was Rush Limbaugh, so who’s to say for sure? The thing about terrorists is that they strike when and where you don’t expect them. So we were fine. We had time to spare, while the old woman in front of us — and when I say old, I mean much older, like over-80 older — struggled with the clasp of her bracelet. I don’t wear bracelets like that for just this reason, but she had a husband, and my guess is she doesn’t travel much. Unfortunately, the husband went through first, which may tell you something about life for the past 50 years. She was stuck on the other side with the bracelet stuck on her wrist. I have bad eyes. The woman next to me had bad nails. We all stood around.

They offered to screen her physically, or whatever you call it, “to get the wand,” but she kept saying she was sure she could get the bracelet, that it must be the clasp. And as we stood, trying and failing, the line backed up and I tried to smile, and people way behind me started wondering, I’m sure, whether a man on a one-way ticket from Nigeria with no luggage was holding up the line. He wasn’t. Just the older lady with the gold bracelet and the sticky clasp and the husband on the wrong side of the divider. She was finally rescued by a tattooed hipster whose many piercings plainly led to a greater familiarity with all forms of jewelry fasteners than the rest of us. What a complete and total waste of time. Was there one person in the universe who thought the woman in the wheelchair was a terrorist? Could there possibly be anybody else in that line — say, someone whose father tried to tell us that he had been radicalized, someone about whom the British knew enough to deny a visa — who was deserving of our scrutiny? I’m a liberal. I’m a civil libertarian. But if the country were being threatened by middle-aged Jewish women, I’d open my purse and my pockets in a New York minute. It isn’t. Nor is it being threatened by elderly ladies in wheelchairs. The frightening part of the latest directive adding to the list of those warranting

special scrutiny individuals who either are from or have been traveling in countries known to harbor terrorists is not that it unfairly profiles, but that we haven’t been doing that kind of screening up to this point. Why not? Did we think folks traveling from the Middle East and East Africa were no more dangerous than those who hailed from Finland and Norway? Does anyone in their right mind think that young men who have recently visited from Yemen should be treated no different than old white ladies in wheelchairs? We live in a dangerous world. We are not going to convince radicalized young men to put down their arms. The father who warned us about his own son understood it. The Jordanian doctor who was recruited to work with our intelligence officials and then turned into a suicide bomber proves it. We can do everything reasonable to provide the security and stability that may reduce the attractions of radical ideology. But where it has already taken root, our only option is to root it out and destroy the threat. We will not do so successfully if we’re all wasting our time fidgeting with the clasp of an antique gold bracelet.

OBITUARIES

FROM PAGE 1 OFFICERS From page 1 narcotics divisions. Wesley, who has 12 years of supervisory experience, currently is TPD’s District Watch Commander, and has completed numerous programs involving leadership and criminal justice. Wesley will oversee four patrol teams that will cover three city districts. “My goal is not to be a traditional captain,” Wesley said. “I’m not going to be 8-to-5 all the time. I’m going to be out and around. We’re starting a new era and I’m just glad to be a part of it. There’s some really good stuff we’re going to be doing.” Smith, who is now captain of the Investigative Services Bureau, is approaching 20 years of service since joining the force in 1991. During his tenure, Smith worked patrol for 13 years, vice and narcotics for five years and criminal investigations for one year. Smith graduated from UNCGreensboro with a degree in education and also has attended multiple training and management courses, including the Administrative Officer Management program at UNC Chapel Hill. Smith’s bureau will be composed of a criminal investigative unit, a selective enforcement team, vice narcotics, student resource officers and housing authority officers. “I never thought I would reach this level,” said Smith. “If this is as far as I go I’ll be pretty satisfied with that.” Insley said the realignment came about as a result of surveys and assessments conducted both inside the department and out. Insley hopes to improve communication by clearly defining duties to give quality service to Thomasville residents. “We took a holistic look at things and tried to pick the ones who could lead us forward,” Insley said. “We want people to feel comfortable calling us with any issues they may have. We want to make sure we’re identifying the needs of the community.” Staff Writer Eliot Duke can be reached at 888-3578, or duke@tvillet

ROBBERY From page 1

White St. TPD not only recovered some of the stolen property, which included hats, clothing and shoes, but the Gillins brothers as well. Truell said more arrests are forthcoming. “Six people were involved in the robbery and five are in custody,” said Truell. “One resides in Jamestown that we’re actively looking for. He’s not local so we’re having a hard time locating him right now. We had all of them, it has just taken us awhile to find all these people with the holidays. Another person has been charged as an accessory who assisted in the robbery.” Jasmond Gillins also had a criminal background involving firearms, breaking and entering and obtaining property by false pretenses.

Golden Eagles to be more patient instead of getting out in transition. With the Tigers hot on their trail, East started to work the ball around and get closer looks. Four of the five baskets during the aforementioned run were layups. Chelsea Turner scored a layup in between two Taylor Alexander baskets to put East up 37-27. Raven Hayes interrupted the spurt with a layup off an inbounds play, but Fox stole the ball and drove in for two and Taylor Hallman added another for a 12-point

Brinkley Gym has treated its visitors with a hostile environment for the first two seasons of Davidson County Community College basketball. That is something University of North Carolina JV coach Jerod Haase wanted his team to experience. The Tar Heels will visit the tight confines on Jan. 27, and Ken Kirk, director of athletics at DCCC, is excited for the opportunity to host the event. “This is a dream come true,” Kirk said. “The things we have been able to do with the program and with coach Matt Ridge leading us, it is extremely special to me and our athletics program. We plan on expanding in the future and this is a great boost for us and our student body.” Because of the small-

ness of Brinkley Gym and the excitement surrounding the game, the staff at the school has decided to sell tickets, making sure there is sufficient seating. Kirk estimates the gym can facilitate 286 people — that includes players, fans, media and volunteers. They have split the difference of the remaining spots, offering 58 tickets to students and 58 to the general public. Tickets are free for currently enrolled students with a picture identification. General public sales are $10 apiece with a limit of five tickets per person. These tickets will go on sale in the gym lobby on Jan. 16 at noon. Anyone who is unable to get a ticket to the game can watch it in the Conference Center Building on the big screen for $7, with kids admitted for $5. Food and drinks will be served.

Durham Herald Sun CHAPEL HILL — North Carolina starting point guard Larry Drew II said he believes the No. 9 Tar Heels will be practicing late-game situations more often in the coming weeks after their overtime loss to the College of Charleston on Monday night. UNC led by 11 points with four minutes to play, but Charleston’s Andrew Goudelock hit a 3-pointer with 2.1 seconds to play to send the game into overtime and the Cougars held on for an 82-79

victory. “Late-game situations and close-game situation management, we don’t really work on, so I had to ask Coach, ‘What do you want us to do?’” Drew said. “For the most part, I was kind of on the same page as him. “I mean, let’s face it, we’re not really expected to be down at the end of the game -- North Carolina basketball. I’m not saying that’s why we don’t [practice late-game situations]. We’ve just got to play better.” UNC coach Roy Williams said his team made some errors down the

stretch on both the offensive and defensive end, but coaching was partially to blame. With UNC leading 73-70 near the end of regulation, Charleston’s Tony White grabbed an offensive rebound with 21 seconds to go and dribbled up court where he almost lost possession before Goudelock ended up with the ball near halfcourt. As the clock wound down, Williams screamed at his team to foul since the Tar Heels had recorded just four fouls in the second half and would

SPORTS

TIMES STAFF REPORT Denton racer Clint King will be honored as the Late Model Truck division Rookie of the Year Jan. 23 at Caraway Speedway’s banquet. King won the award despite only competing in seven events on the 4/10 mile track this season while also competing on the PASS Truck Series tour for much of it’s 2009 season. In those seven starts however, King accumulated two wins and only finished outside of the top five in his first start there which was his second start in a Late Model Truck, which oddly enough came on the same night after competing in his first truck race at Dillon Motor Speedway earlier that day. King’s 2009 accomplishments at Caraway Speedway were certainly worthy of earning the 14year-old driver the Rookie of the Year award honors and an achievement he’ll carry with him throughout his stock car racing career. King also picked up one win this season at Hickory Motor Speedway in Hickory, N.C, another historic short track as well as picking up a victory in the PASS Truck Series at Coastal Plains

Raceway in Jacksonville, N.C. This accomplishment also marks a note worthy achievement for Crew Chief Ricky Bryant, as this was his third Rookie of the Year title at Caraway Speedway. His first title came in 2003 as the Crew Chief for Chris Bristol, in 2004 as the driver and now as the Crew Chief for Clint King. King then ended his season with a first career Late Model Stock Car start in the ultra-competitive UARA-STARS Series at Concord Speedway. The young driver was solid in practice sessions, posting topfive practice times leading up to the main event. He qualified a strong 13th and while making a run toward the front of the field, his car became extremely loose eventually resulting in contact with

another car and the outside wall ending his day. King finished the event 22nd and upon surveying the damage to the car following the race, the team found that the right rear tire was nearly flat and a huge chunk of rubber was missing from that same tire, which they believe led to the crash that took him out of the event. In 2010, King is hoping to compete full-time in his Late Model Stock Car and on the UARA-STARS Series tour. The team is currently searching for sponsorship to make that a reality. King will also likely head back to Caraway Speedway and maybe some other area short tracks to compete in the Limited Late Model division, given NASCAR’s recently announced dropping of the age restriction to 14 years old.

EAST From page 7 lead. “They (Randleman) were making a solid effort to slow down the pace of the game and that is something we have not faced a lot of this year,� said EDHS coach Brian Eddinger. “It took a while for us to adjust to it, then we settled into our halfcourt offense. With the defense sagging in, East used crosscourt passes to move the outer links of the defense and create holes. Grimsley took a long pass in the corner and hit a 3pointer, then the passing allowed Fox to hit Turner who drew the foul underneath. Her two free throws were good to put East up 13, but Rebecca Oakes hit a 3 to trim it back to 10 with 3:43 showing in the fourth. The long passing continued to be an effective means for the Golden Eagles, as their 7-3 run salted the game away. “It is funny because you work on something in practice and all of a sudden you stick it in their head and they start doing it in the game all the time,� Eddinger said. The skip passes are part of our offense, and a lot of our use of it tonight is

a testament to them packing in that zone. We took what they gave us.� East surged to a 15-6 lead at the end of the first quarter, and went up 21-8 midway through the second. The Tigers scored the next four points to trail by 9, only until Grimsley hit from the outside with a 3 and Stacy Hicks found Fox on the baseline for a jumper.

Randleman dug a bit deeper to make a comeback with the encouragement of their coach, scoring the final eight points of the half to trail 26-20 at the half. Now 11-2, East will visit Lexington on Friday at 6.

HIGH FLYING EAGLE East Davidson Golden Eagle Taylor Warren soars above two Randleman Tiger defenders in a nonconference tilt on Wednesday at East.

PLENTY From page 7 not have put the Cougars on the free-throw line. “I’ve got to coach them better,” Williams said. “They got to understand that you’re three points down and [four] fouls. Again, we’re yelling and screaming and doing everything, but we didn’t get it done so we’re not getting the correct coaching.” Fouling Charleston at the end of the game also would have stopped the clock and allowed UNC to get its defense settled. Instead, Deon Thompson switched with David Wear on a screen during the final frantic seconds and was caught in a mismatch outside. Goudelock, a 6-2 guard, swished the game-tying 3-pointer over the outstretched arms of 6-10 Thompson. “I almost called timeout just before that final shot in regulation,” Charleston coach Bobby Cremins said. “Drew looked like he was under control, so I let him take it and luckily for us it went in.” But the Tar Heels also made some mistakes when they were down at the end of overtime. With 16 seconds to

BUILDS From page 7 Brinkley Gym has provided the Storm with a true, homecourt advantage through two-plus seasons, as DCCC has posted a 33-2 record to date. This will be the only away game the Tar Heels play, so DCCC fans have a chance to be a part of something special, and create an environment the players are not accustomed to.

play, Donavan Monroe made two free throws to put Charleston up 82-79. The Tar Heels got the ball back but never attempted a 3-pointer to tie the game, as freshman Dexter Strickland drove from the top of the key and missed a layup with four seconds remaining. “We’re down three, and we take it to the basket and try to shoot a layup and that’s not smart, either,” Williams. “Again, that’s the coach’s fault.” Even so, UNC had one more chance at tying the game when they got an inbounds play from halfcourt with 1.1 seconds on the clock. But the Tar Heels never got a shot off, as Ed Davis’ baseball pass intended for Drew on the other side of court was picked off by Charleston to seal its victory. “We just didn’t get it done,” Davis said. The Tar Heels’ subdued locker room after the game clearly conveyed their disappointment at the outcome, but Drew said the team has to have a short memory and get ready for its ACC opener against Virginia Tech on Sunday (7:45 p.m., Fox Sports). “We got to start walking the talk now, that’s all it is,” Drew said. “I feel like I’ve heard ev-

erything from the players, from the coaches. It’s getting to the point where we’ve just got to start doing what we say we’re going to do.”

“This is a really rare occurrence for them to leave the (Dean E.) Smith Center,” said Kirk. “Jerod wanted his players to get the experience of having the crowd right up on them. We could have taken it to a local high school or something, but he wanted to play in a very small gym.” Game time will be 7 p.m.

FROM PAGE 1 WORKING From page 1 Googe said that Project V, a manufacturing, distribution and marketing operation, plans to invest about $12 million over a six-year period and create 300 jobs at or above the county average wage. The two governing bodies approved an economic development grant of 0.0027 times the investment in machinery and equipment for the county, and 0.0028 times that investment for the city, each year for seven years. Googe estimated the annual value of the grant to be $55,000. The EDC has been working on Project Lynx for about six years, Googe said. The company was set to announce an expansion in the county in 2005, but it chose to withdraw. “We’re back now at the

said, “so that we can provide jobs for, in this case, 300 of our families that are going to pay taxes and be able to pay their bills and do shopping at our area businesses.” Barney Hill also spoke in support of the grants, as long as the incentives were in fact paid from the company’s own tax money instead of taxpayer dollars. He also said that the property tax burden in the city and county is double what it should be for any property owner. “The method you have chosen to provide relief allows you to provide [tax] relief only one taxpayer at a time,” Hill said. “When the house is burning down, it is unwise to dispense water in thimbles.” County Commissioner Max Walser said that this was another small step toward recovery in Davidson County, and that he thought it was more worthwhile than trying

point that it looks like if we can get our stuff approved and some other things fall into place, that we’ll be able to announce that shortly,” Googe said. The identities of the companies will be revealed if and when a contract agreement is reached, because the county still is in competition with other communities in other states. Googe said he thought that the EDC could make a final presentation to both companies within two weeks. During Tuesday’s public hearings, Timothy Gainey, pastor of East End Baptist Church in Lexington, spoke in support of the grants. He said that his work as a pastor has allowed him to see first-hand how unemployment is affecting families in the county. “It seems to be a small price to pay to rebate money that we don’t have now and won’t have if they don’t come,” Gainey

to draw in and keep huge manufacturing centers. “I really do believe that somewhere down the road, this county’s going to be much better off for having attracted these smaller companies that pay better wages and have better benefits,” Walser said. On Jan. 12, county commissioners will hold additional public hearings regarding incentives for two more companies, code-named Project Combined and Project G. Project Combined plans to invest $3 million and create 150 jobs, and Project G plans to invest $1.2 million and create 20 jobs, Googe said. They each would receive an incentive grant of 0.0027 times the company’s investment in a plant, machinery and equipment each year for five years.

her kitchen. “My grandchildren, my grandchildren’s friends, any senior or any friend — anybody can come to my house and eat,” Ray said. “I probably have about 20 or 30 kids on Thanksgiving.” Ray says that she sometimes drives people to register to vote and then to the polls on election day. She also tries to make sure that those less fortunate than her have enough to eat and something to wear. “She’s a very humble woman, and she does not care about a person’s status or their race or their connections,” Jackson said. For many years, Ray delivered Thanksgiving baskets full of food to the elderly. She has been active in working to keep adequate funding for Thomasville City Schools. At her church, she is vice president of the kitchen committee, president of the Pastor’s Aide group, a helper with the youth and an avid fund raiser. “So many times, as a pastor, you have to beg folks to help,” Jackson said. “That’s not the case with Miss Ray. She has prepared meals out of her kitchen for truckloads of people, and the proceeds have gone to help her church.” Pastor Haywood N. Goode Sr. is a native of DeFuniak Springs, Fla, and he and his family relocated to Greensboro in 1970. He retired from Flowers Baking Company after 40 years of service. “I feel very good that [MLK-SAC has] considered me for such a prestigious award,” Goode said. “I’m very humbled.” He has served as pastor of the Friendship Missionary Baptist Church in Thomasville since November of 1985. He is former moderator of the

they could look back in their history, they would all point back to Haywood Goode,” Jackson said. “Many pastors throughout the Triad region have come out from under his ministry.” The reverend was quick to point out that his legacy in the community is not just his own. “I’ve had all kinds of help from other people and ministers,” Goode said. “I thank them from the bottom of my heart.” At 81 years old, Goode

has one brother, one sister-in-law, six children, 20 grandchildren, 36 greatgrandchildren and six g reat-g reat-g randchildren. His life-long partner was the late Henrietta Goode, who worked diligently with him in the ministry, and they enjoyed 52 years of marriage until her death in January 1999.
