Welcome firefighter honored by state
Reports show progress in lowering dropout rate BY ERIN WILTGEN
BY ERIN WILTGEN Staff Writer
In a profession charged with saving the lives of citizens, Welcome resident Jonathan Sowers developed a firefighting training program aimed at protecting the lives of his own comrades. And he has been honored for it by the state. Insurance Commissioner and State Fire Marshal Wayne Goodwin announced Wednesday that Sowers, a training specialist in the Department’s Fire and Rescue Training and Inspection Division, received the Governor’s Award for Excellence for Innovations. “Congratulations to Jonathan for his great work in educating and training our first responders,” Goodwin said. “The course he developed will go a long way in helping firefighters understand what they’re dealing with when they enter a burning structure.” The training program, called Understanding Building Construction, focuses on the different types of building structures and the strategies for fighting fires in each type. It also covers how to read smoke, advanced fire behavior, fire protection systems and the engineering of building construction. “Buildings that are built today are built with engineer construction which falls a lot quicker now,” said Sowers, a three year-
lot of what the bigger guys can’t handle.” One of those bigger guys is Larry Walker & Sons, Inc., located at 5915 Surrett Drive in High Point. Robbie Walker, one of the shop’s co-owners, said his business has already repaired five vehicles damaged from weather-related accidents and expects more to come in over the next week. Some of the repairs Walker has seen so far includes damaged bumpers and quarter panels, realignments and busted headlights. “A lot of them have fender benders or where someone went into a ditch and had to be pulled out,” Walker said. “People are
The Davidson County Board of Education met Wednesday to assess school progress and discuss issues focusing on the improvement of academic achievement. A significant decline in the number of students labeled W2 — or students who have left school with the intent to drop out — has left administrators pleased with efforts to improve student success. “I want to commend our principals and our guidance counselors in all that they are doing with students,” said Sandi Lee, assistant superintendent for curriculum. “We are very proud of this data.” For all seven Davidson County high schools, the number of W2-coded students recorded in the fourth month dropped from 117 in the 2008-09 school year to 104 in the 2009-10 school year, moving from 1.93 percent of the student body to 1.72 percent. West Davidson High School and South Davidson High School both have less than 10 dropouts. “Looking internally as well as externally at who we are and who is providing exemplary performance is an important part of our initiative,” said DCS Superintendent Fred Mock. High school guidance counselors have worked hard to tailor individual programs for struggling

Ronnie Walker of Larry Walker & Sons Body Shop Wednesday inspects damages on a vehicle wrecked during last weekend’s winter storm.
Storm Aftermath Area body shops busy after weekend snow and ice BY ELIOT DUKE Staff Writer Icy roads and driving never mix. With state and local officials reporting dozens of weather-related traffic accidents from this past weekend’s winter snowstorm, the number of banged up vehicles in the area is plenty. For every busted bumper or smashed quarter panel, there is a body shop ready to do the repairs. In the aftermath of this past storm, work is beginning to trickle in at several area body shops who are eager for the extra work. “I could sure use it,” Rodney Thrift, owner of Rodney Thrift Body and Paint on Ball Park Road, said. “Its been kind of
slow lately, but I expect to be getting some calls once people start getting out more.” Road conditions are gradually improving as city workers continue scraping and plowing what is now more of a slushy, icy mix. Thrift, whose shop has operated in Thomasville for almost 50 years, feels business will pick up once people feel more comfortable getting back on the roads. While he doesn’t expect a lot of business to come his way, Thrift said that with only two employees, a little can go a long way. “I’m too old to be working that hard,” said Thrift. “Twenty years ago, I would’ve taken every job I could get my hands on. Most of my customers have been with me for a long time. We’ll get a
Local man brings big city hot spot to downtown BY ELIOT DUKE Staff Writer
Thomasville native Zac Rickard saw firsthand how a classy night spot can improve a city’s downtown. While working as a Disc Jockey in Greensboro, Rickard witnessed the transformation of a relatively dead downtown into a revitalized district where night life flourished. Rickard hopes the same will happen in his hometown. Last month, Rickard, 27, opened the Greyhound Lounge at 18 Salem St. and on Friday will be
‘I just want to bring a big downtown atmosphere night spot to a small town.’ — Zac Rickard Greyhound Lounge owner holding a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the Chair City’s latest hot spot for those who enjoy having a good time after hours. “I thought I could hope-
fully help Thomasville out and do the same thing for it that others have done in other cities,” Rickard said. “I just want to bring a big downtown atmosphere night spot to a small town.” Rickard came up with the idea after selling his share of a phone company he founded. In May 2007, Rickard began leasing the property that was once an old pawn shop that had been vacant for years. Nearly three years and just about every major renovation imaginable later, the Greyhound

A pause for the cause for four at the lunch counter
We had some snow this weekend! Enough to close the mills and churches that don’t usually close without thinking twice. The snow also cancelled a lot of Monday morning obligations, including mine. And I was left wide open to take in the proceedings in Greensboro, wh ere local, statewide and national figures came together to celebrate and cut the red ribbon that officially opened the new Civil Rights Museum. Woolworth’s ‘five and dime’ was recognized for its rightful place in history, a place that symbolizes courage, equality and change. As I think back to those troubling times in the late ‘60s, I return to how things were for me. Isn’t that how we most often view the world? I had little exposure to racial tension in my small textile town, though it may well have been there. Our community was divided like a lot of small towns, and I say that with no small amount of shame. We didn’t go to school, or worship, or hang out together. Not until the schools were integrated, just as my high school career was beginning.
came about as life choices, a way of living out their faith. Whether it was Mom coaching me on changes brought about by integration, or dad helping to secure jobs for immigrants from Vietnam — they modeled respect for all people. I thought little of it then. I think about it a great deal now. And I’m grateful. We all have things about our families we wish we could change. Things that drove us crazy or left us with unfulfilled needs. Mine was no different in that respect. But when it came to showing genuine respect, especially to those who were different or experiencing hardship, their lessons were stellar. They just did it. Now if we as a community can just remember and do likewise.

I remember my mother standing at the kitchen sink, talking with me about the impending changes. It was just easier to talk about things while washing dishes, I guess. She told me there were going to be some changes in my school. That the schools were going to be racially integrated and some new students would be coming to my school. Mom said this with little emotion — whatever she felt she did not let on. But obviously, she had some feelings about the people involved and some advice for her eldest daughter. “I suspect those new students are going to feel pretty out of place at first,” she began. “Yes, I bet they’ll be needing some new friends at school. I understand there’s a girl about your age that will be coming. You should be just as nice to her as you can be … the change will be hard on her too. Her name is Susie, I think.” That was the first “diversity training” I ever remember. It took place in the heart of my home, just a part of everyday living. No one talked about whether this should or should not be happening. It was just what was going on and there were real people involved — living, breathing people who needed love and acceptance — just as we all do. No one in my family used the ‘N’ word. No one in my family dismissed or disparaged people from other races. Nor, as I recall, did they advocate politically for minorities or other disadvantaged groups. Their lessons simply

-employee of the Office of State Fire Marshal. Sowers said that more synthetic furniture in homes and stores results in hotter fires, which, combined with buildings collapsing faster than they used to, leads to increased dangers for firefighters. These same hazards faced the firefighters from the 2007 Charleston, S.C. Sofa Superstore fire and the 2008 Salisbury Millwork fire in North Carolina. Eleven firefighters died in the two fires — nine in Charleston and two in Salisbury. Sowers said that the incidences sparked discussion among firefighters and gave him the idea for the course. He then sifted through more than 20 years of data compiled by the United States Fire Administration, the National Fire Protection Association, the National Fire Incident Reporting System and North Carolina-specific statistics. Since the class began two years ago, more than 50 training sessions have run, and the N.C. Fire and Rescue Commission has added an extra six-toeight hours of training to the Basic Firefighter I

Sowers’ course is now the most requested of the trainings offered by the Office of State Fire Marshal. “I’ve had a few people tell me that right after they had it, they recognized something or it changed the way they thought about something,” Sowers said. “So it’s making progress.” North Carolina is the only state nationwide that has included research from the Charleston and Salisbury fires to develop a training course like Sowers’. And the firefighter hasn’t stopped with the
one course. He created an addition to the training session, called Enclosed Structures, that he said will start the last week of February. But despite all his hard work, Sowers insisted that he didn’t deserve the publicity garnered by winning the award or even the award itself. “I’m just doing my job,” he said. “Someone else thought it was a great thing, and it surprised me.” Staff Writer Erin Wiltgen can be reached at 8883576, or at email@example.com

The value of diversity VIEWPOINT
SUSAN ESTRICH Syndicated Columnist Diversity is not just a nice thing. It isn’t just about fairness or equal opportunity. Diversity is good business, essential business, especially for companies that market to women — or are covered by them. If you have any doubt, consider the iPad. Is there a woman in America who did not laugh, or at least roll her eyes, the minute she heard that the newest, hottest tablet computer from one of America’s most ingenuous companies was going to sound like a feminine hygiene product? The iKotex is what most people I know are calling it, with apologies to Kotex. So where were those women? The short answer is that, plainly, they were not in the room. Go to Apple’s home page and look at the pictures and bios of key executives. I’ll tell you who you’ll find: Steve, Timothy, Scott, Jonathan, Ron, Bob, Peter, Mark, Philip, Bertrand and Bruce. All white, all men. If there is a “top” woman at Apple, at best she’s No. 12. The video released by Apple to trumpet the genius of the iPad (it really does) is equally un-diverse. Only men use the iPad. Only men talk about the iPad. It’s almost as bad as the name. That might work if you were selling jock straps. It doesn’t work if you want American consumers — half of whom are women — to buy your product. Even car companies, notoriously male at the top, use women in their promotional campaigns. Did they really think we wouldn’t notice? This is not a new issue at Apple. Every year in my law school class on gender discrimination, we review the latest Catalyst survey of Fortune 500 and Fortune 1000 companies in America that still have no women on their boards of directors, or no women among the top earners. Every year,
Apple showed up on both lists. Finally, in 2008, Apple announced that Andrea Jung, the CEO of Avon (a very un-Apple-like company that is full of women who sell to women, starting at the top), was joining Steve Jobs, Bill Campbell, Millard Drexler, Al Gore, Arthur D. Levinson, Eric Schmidt and Jerry York on its board of directors. Google’s Schmidt has since left the board, leaving Andrea and the guys. I am sure that each and every one of the men who serves in a key position at Apple is more than qualified for his position. But qualifications need to be defined more broadly if they are to reflect accurately what the business really needs. If half of your business depends on women, then there is something wrong with any definition of qualifications that doesn’t take account of diversity. I am absolutely certain that no one at Apple sat down and decided that women should be excluded from all the top positions. My guess is that the issue just never came up. That’s the problem. These days, most discrimination is so totally unconscious that the people involved don’t even know they’re discriminating. It’s just that when they think about who the most qualified person is, they think of someone just like themselves. And when they’re sitting in a room full of people who look just like them, it doesn’t occur to them that someone is missing. I know a lot of women who spend their days in front of Apple computers who are almost embarrassed that the company they so love and admire could frankly be so blind and stupid. And finding out why doesn’t make it better. This is Apple’s chance to change. Some years ago, a friend was having dinner with a group of male movie executives and agents, when George Burns stopped at their table. He looked at the group, shook his head, and in that special way laughed and said: “Get a dame.” George had Gracie. Apple needs to find some dames. They will make a great company better.

Has Obama moved center on nuclear power? VIEWPOINT
MONA CHAREN Syndicated Columnist The perennially optimistic strained to find evidence of a new centrism in President Obama’s State of the Union address. Well, the Hyde Park liberal embraced nuclear power, they say. And he did seem to. “ ... To create more ... clean energy jobs,” the president intoned, “we need more production, more efficiency, more incentives. And that means building a new generation of safe, clean nuclear power plants in this country.” It’s a nice sentiment. The Nuclear Energy Institute pronounced itself “delighted.” But hold the champagne. The other nuclear news this week is that the Obama administration’s new budget will propose to zero out funding for Nevada’s Yucca Mountain nuclear repository — in effect, killing it. Instead, the Energy Department has announced the formation of a “blue ribbon” commission “to provide recommendations for developing a safe, long-term solution to managing the nation’s used nuclear fuel and nuclear waste.” It will consist of the usual blue ribbon members (Lee Hamilton, Brent Scowcroft, Susan Eisenhower) and produce an interim report in 18 months and a final report in 24. The commission will have 15 members and
God knows how many staff, and accordingly, the costs will run into the millions. And why are we forming yet another blue ribbon commission to study a matter that has already been studied to death? The commission is empowered to study “all options” except the one that has already been chosen by the United States government. So much for the previous blue ribbon commission that had settled on the Yucca Mountain site. American taxpayers have already invested more than $13 billion over 30 years to build the facility and make it redundantly safe. In 1982, the U.S. government agreed to begin accepting nuclear waste at the site in 1998. Failure to meet that deadline has already cost us $565 million in legal settlements and is estimated to run up to $11 billion over the next decade. The Yucca Mountain repository is 1,000 feet underground in the most lifeless desert of North America. Its storage tunnels have been engineered to enhance the natural protective effect of thick rock by adding multiple layers of steel, titanium drip shields to prevent erosion, and other safety features to ensure that the waste (which becomes less harmful with the passage of time) will not leak. How safe is it? Consider millirems, units of radiation. A cross-country airplane ride subjects travelers to 2 or 3 millirems (from cosmic rays). A dental x-ray yields 1 millirem. People who live in Denver get twice the dose (50 per year) as those who live at sea level. An earlier Energy Department study examined whether the Yucca containment facility could withstand normal aging, plus volcanoes and earthquakes. The conclusion was
that it would emit no more than 1 millirem per year of radiation for 750,000 years! But goodbye to all that. It wasn’t safe enough for Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., who has worked to kill the Yucca facility. (Reid was not alone among Nevada politicians. Former Sen. Chic Hecht had memorably promised to oppose “nuclear suppositories” in his state.) And it was not safe enough for Barack Obama, who campaigned energetically in Nevada promising to terminate the project. In addition to zeroing out funding, the administration proposes to suspend the license application for the facility and withdraw it completely within the month. Why are they wasting our time and money on a new blue ribbon commission to go over plowed ground? The administration hopes that the commission will reassure the nuclear industry that provision will be made for the waste. But when? In another 30 years? At the cost of another $13 billion or more? There is nothing dishonorable about opposing nuclear energy — though the greenies who claim that global warming is their chief worry have some explaining to do if they reject nuclear power — but there is something dishonest about claiming to favor nuclear power while simultaneously short-circuiting the most viable solution to the problem of long-term waste storage. They are wasting their time, squandering our money, and insulting our intelligence.

A COACH’S DREAM Potts does little things to lead DCCC hoops
BY ZACH KEPLEY Sports Editor
Tar Heels lack killer instinct in 2010
Just mentioning the name Eric Potts brings a grin to the face of Davidson County Community College basketball coach Matt Ridge. Not because he is the team’s leading scorer or a flashy player who makes spectacular plays, but for the simple fact he is the type of character building, hard work driven athlete that every coach dreams of getting the chance to coach. “He knows what it takes to win and he learned that long before he met me playing at Trinity for coach Tim Kelly,” Ridge said. “He does the little things that do not always show up in the black and white ink in the newspaper, but he helps us win.” Potts averages right at nine points per game, but continues to be the leading rebounder for a second year in a row. Those are just two statistics that show up in the box score. He does all of the little things like drawing charges, setting screens, getting deflections and likely leads the team in floor burns. Potts is the epitome of a role player, staying low-key and doing his part to help the team any way he can. At the end of the day, while the high scorers and stars of the game get the recognition, he quietly exits the gymnasium knowing he did his job. “I try to be a leader as much as I can and

not been rescheduled as of press time. The Central Carolina Conference has its wrestling tournament on Saturday, so matches must be squeezed in over the next two days. Thomasville will be hosting matches today involving many of the CCC teams.
It’s a conference filled with good but not great teams, no one able to get into position to claim the top spot in the national rankings. At the other end of the Top 25, it’s a virtual carousel for the conference, with numerous teams entering and exiting each week but no one making a serious move toward the top. That pretty much describes the outlook for ACC football on the national level in recent seasons. It also happens to describe the much more rare position for ACC men’s basketball this season. Thanks only to 11 teams cracking the top
10 in Monday’s Associated Press rankings — Duke and Kansas State tied for No. 10 — the ACC avoided by the smallest of margins not having a team in the top 10 for the first time since March 1996. Georgia Tech, at No. 21, is the league’s only other ranked team, but five other teams already have been ranked at some point. The list of ranked teams to date doesn’t even include Wake Forest, a team that has knocked on the door multiple times but has yet to make the cut. It’s a pattern familiar for ACC football, and one that does not earn the conference much respect. It’s now resulting in rumblings that ACC basketball isn’t as strong as it
traditionally has been, especially with reigning NCAA champ North Carolina struggling. The ACC’s relative place in the pecking order of conferences is debatable. That’s always the case, in both football and basketball. But what isn’t really debatable is that the postseason format favored by the respective sports means that ACC basketball fans have a lot more to look forward to down the stretch than ACC football fans often do. The most recent time an ACC football team entered the stretch run of the regular season with a real shot at the national title was 2000, when Florida State

Fans of Tar Heels basketball must feel like the sky is falling. A year after winning the national championship, the University of North Carolina Tar Heels are struggling to stay above the .500 mark. Home losses are mounting and hopes of making the NCAA tournament are fading with each passing defeat. Gone are stars like Tyler Hansbrough, Ty Lawson, Danny Green and Wayne Ellington, replaced by a group of talented freshmen and experienced veterans. No one should be too surprised that the Heels are finding the going rough in the ACC. No team can lose that many good players and not suffer a drop off the following season. What is surprising to me is just how lackluster Carolina looks at times. In 2002, I got to cover nearly every UNC game, home and away. From the very time that team walked out on the court against Binghamton, I knew it would be a long year. The players that came running out of the tunnel didn’t even look talented, so I figured a Final Four would not be in the cards. It turned out I was right. The Heels won eight games that year and got blown out more times than not. I had the unfortunate pleasure of being at the two worst home losses in school history that year, which is something I could’ve done without. What I took from that

SPORTS From page 7 not take any plays off,” Potts said. “I just try to lead by example.” Ridge echoed his comments. “He brings it on every play, of every practice and every game,” said Ridge. “He leads by example and is a winner off the court and in the classroom. He will continue to be successful far beyond our basketball program.” Getting to this point in his career has been difficult for Potts. While at Trinity, he played two years of junior varsity basketball before getting his chance at the varsity level. Not always the tallest player at his position, he’s had to play that much harder to be effective. By the time his senior year rolled around he became an integral part of a Bulldog team that finished second in the state at the 3-A level. Now, in his second season with the Storm, Potts has really tapped in to his potential and has helped

This year’s team isn’t showing any signs of life, and that is what’s disappointing to me. Too many times, this version of the Tar Heels appears lethargic and not very interested. Sure, they lost a lot of talent from a season ago, but the cupboards are far from bare. The starting lineup rolls out Ed Davis, Deion Thompson, Larry Drew, Will Graves and Marcus Ginyard — five players with a national championship

With just a handful of games remaining and a perfect record in the Region X Tarheel Conference, DCCC has a chance to run the table and set the stage for what could be the team’s first regional championship. “We have become a better team the last few games,” Potts said. “We have bought into what coach is teaching us and we are just trying to play
So when the Tar Heels came to visit Brinkley Gym, Potts and company were prepared. “I was ready to play and we played together that night,” he said. “Consistency-wise, that was the best game we have played this year.” While the win generated a high level of excitement with the program, there is one other major game this year that DCCC would rank much higher and mean more than just
ring on their fingers. Throw in freshmen like John Henson, Dexter Strickland, and Travis and David Ware, and that’s more talent than a lot of teams possess. What this team has in talent it lacks in heart. There is no reason why UNC should get outscored 18-0 to Virginia or fall behind by more than 20 to Georgia Tech. Carolina plays great at State only to return home and lay a ostrich-sized egg against the Wahoos. Head coach Roy Williams seems as frustrated as most Tar heels fans. He has called this season the hardest of his career and doesn’t seem to know why his squad is so inconsistent. He runs them hard in practice,
he turns his back on them during a game, he yells, he screams, yet nothing changes. In no way is Williams’ job in jeopardy. Two titles in five years is more than enough job security, but this is Carolina we’re talking about. Not making the tournament and finishing in the bottom half of the ACC is not commonplace on Tobacco Road, and is certainly not what fans have come to expect. Losing games is one thing, not playing hard all the time is another. Carolina will be fine. More talent is on the way and coach Williams is one of the best in the game. The problem is this year still has a long way to go and more losses could very well be on the horizon,

a win against UNC. In its first two seasons, the Storm have reached the Region X title game, only to come away with a loss. Potts was a member of the 2009 team that overcame all obstacles and made an improbable run to the championship game, where DCCC fell by one in the final seconds. Still fresh on his mind, the sophomore forward remembers that game all to well, and would like to get one more crack at changing history. “I even cried after that game,” Potts said. “It was a dagger and it saddened me, but it also got me ready for this season to get back there and get coach Ridge a regional championship.” So next time while at a Storm game, enjoy watching the sharpshooters fill up the basket with points and the dunkers ramming home a slam. But for a few moments, take a glance at the man in the No. 12 jersey working tirelessly to make all of those plays possible.

Next week, the games of the 21st Winter Olympics will start in British Columbia, Canada. This Mini Page will give you a few things to watch for during this twoweek celebration of sport, skill and friendship.
Cross-country skiing started as a way for people to get around during winters with lots of snow.
A giant welcome The opening ceremonies will take place on Friday, Feb. 12, at 6 p.m. Pacific time. The ceremonies are a way for the host nation and city to welcome the rest of the world and the athletes to the Olympics. Using music, dance and special effects, each opening ceremony is a unique, or one-of-a-kind, performance.
Skiing with a twist Cross-country skiing is a different type of skiing that requires a lot of stamina, or long-lasting strength. Skiers race not only downhill, but also move over flat land and even go up small hills. Cross-country ski races are sometimes called loppets (lawpits), which means â€œraceâ€? in Swedish. In the ski jump, a person skis without poles down a long ramp and off a jump. He flies through the air, trying to land as far down the mountain as he can.
Brrr! Itâ€™s cold out there Many sports in the Winter Games take place outside. The alpine skiing and snowboarding events need a lot of snow so that athletes can achieve fast speeds and make sharp turns. The snow is groomed, or smoothed and packed, to prevent it from getting too icy and slick or too powdery, either of which can make athletes lose control and fall.
Some sports are a combination of other sports. Biathlon combines crosscountry skiing and target shooting with a rifle. Nordic combined is a dual sport of cross-country skiing and ski jumping. The newest Olympic event is ski cross. It is a part of the sport of freestyle skiing, along with moguls (MOH-guhls), or snow bumps, and aerials (AIR-ee-uhls), or tricks and flips off a jump. In ski cross, a group of four skiers race to finish first.
Put it on ice While the skiing and snowboarding events all need the snow, other Winter Olympic sports take place on the ice. The bobsled, luge and skeleton are outdoor sports that use a long, fast ice track with lots of turns. â€œLugeâ€? is the French word for sled. At the Whistler Sliding Centre, a bobsleigh passes by spectators in a blur.

Height: 5-10 Weight: 215 Hometown: Flint, Mich. Alabama football fans chanted â€œRoll Tide!â€? and sophomore halfback Mark Ingram Jr. responded to their battle cry. He rolled to a single-season school rushing record on the way to becoming the first Crimson Tide player ever to win the Heisman Trophy, college footballâ€™s biggest award for a player. In helping â€™Bama post a 13-0 regular-season record and earn a chance to play 4EXAS FOR THE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP )NGRAM GAINED YARDS RUNNING THE BALL and also caught 30 passes for 322 more yards. Ingram, whose father, Mark Ingram Sr., was a wide receiver on a New York Giants Super Bowl-winning team, was at his best against the toughest opponents. He averaged 165 yards per game running and catching the ball against teams ranked in the Top 25. Stocky, strong and speedy â€” and with two years of college eligibility remaining â€” Mark is expected to rack up more honors and help keep the powerful Crimson Tide rolling.

Ice hockey is a popular event during the Winter Olympics.
photo courtesy U.S. Speedskating
Ice hockey is played throughout the entire Winter Games by both menâ€™s and womenâ€™s teams. This year, the menâ€™s hockey gold medal game is the last event of the Vancouver Olympics. Speedskating is similar to two runners doing laps around a track for the best time. Because the inside lane of the oval-shaped track is shorter than the outside lane, racers switch lanes in the middle of the race. This is called a crossover. Short-track is a different type of speedskating. In this event, four to six skaters race each other, not the clock. There is also a relay event, where each racer on a team skates one part of the race. Shorttrack teams skate very close together at high speeds. Both men and women compete in short-track speedskating.
All the following jokes have something in common. Can you guess the common theme or category? Terry: What kind of police enjoy their work the most? Thomas: Traffic police, because they whistle while they work!
Speedskaters can go faster than any other human beings without the help of machines â€” about 40 mph. Indoor events such as speedskating will take place at the Richmond Olympic Oval.
Toni: What could a moose do if it got stuck in traffic? Tammy: Honk its horns! Tilly: Which traffic light is a coward? Timothy: The yellow one!
Grace and skill Figure skating may be the most popular sport at the Winter Olympics. Graceful skaters use jumps, twists and spins to earn points, which are awarded by judges. Jumps such as the Axel and the Lutz are named after the famous skaters who created them.

SPORTS ACC From page 7 threatened to repeat as champion. Since then, the latter stages of the season typically have seen ACC football teams jockeying for the equivalent of NIT bids, trying to position themselves for more attractive bowls but bowls that have nothing to do with the sport’s top prize. That’s not the way the ball bounces in college basketball. As of Monday, Joe Lunardi’s latest “Bracketology” projections had six ACC teams making the NCAA Tournament, with the Tar Heels and Virginia — fresh off a victory in Chapel Hill — among the top eight teams on the outside looking in. Officially, 65 teams will have a chance at winning basketball’s national title come March, while just two have a chance at winning football’s Bowl Championship Series. The number of teams with a legitimate shot in basketball is much lower, of course — it’s probably around a dozen this year — but it’s still much more fun for some many more fans. Every ACC basketball team already has at least two losses, and every one has at least two victories in league play. Whereas that kind
of balance is a death knell for football, it should make the next five weeks fascinating for basketball. Will UNC figure out a way to make the NCAA Tournament? Will Duke prove strong enough to make a run in the NCAA Tournament? What will be the fate for everyone else on Selection Sunday? Will Virginia continue to surprise to the finish? Will
Clemson surprise everyone by finishing strong? Are Georgia Tech and Maryland back? Will Florida State and Wake Forest be back in the tournament for the second consecutive season? It might not be a vintage year for ACC basketball. It might not be a vintage postseason for the proud conference. That doesn’t mean the next five weeks won’t be a real kick to watch.

waiting for their insurance company to look it and stuff like that. We’re not seeing a lot of expensive damage. Most of it has been within the $2,000 range.” Ken Surmons of Surmons Collision Center at 505 Turner St. is playing the waiting game after receiving numerous calls for service since the storm. Surmons. too, already has repaired a half dozen wrecked vehicles from the snow and more are on the way. Surmons problem is no one has been able to get out to get their car to his shop. “Since the warm weather has come in, I expect to start getting some cars in here,” said Surmons. “We haven’t seen anything really major yet which is good because no one got hurt. It’s bad to think that when it snows people wreck, but that’s how it is.” From the onset of the storm through Monday morning, there were more than 100 calls for service reported throughout Davidson County.

PROGRESS From page 1 students, including implementing online classes, Lee said. And this school year, the county has decided to monitor W2 students on a monthly basis to be more responsive. “We’re very proud of the success we see in these initiatives at this time,” Mock said. Another improvement in student achievement manifests through End of Course tests. Overall, Davidson County High Schools increased from 72.3 percent proficiency in fall 2008 to 78.7 percent proficiency in fall 2009, or 86.3 percent, including retests. This fall was the first year that retests were factored in, and not all retests have been taken, Lee said, meaning this year’s proficiency percentage could rise further. Central Davidson High School increased proficiency by 20.5 percent, and South Davidson High School increased by 26.1 percent. “I told our high school principals we couldn’t be any more pleased,” Lee said. “And I think they’re proud of that.” In other news: • The calendar has been revised to accommodate for the snow days on Monday and Tuesday, with April 6 and 7 set as makeup days. The only other makeup day built into the school schedule is June 10. If more days are missed due to inclement weather, the Board might have to extend the school year. • Sloan Denny will step in as interim principal of Ledford Middle School on March 1, when the current principal, Evan Myers, retires. Denny is currently Ledford’s assistant principal. • The Board approved the use of a new substitute teacher feedback form to improve communication between teachers and their substitutes. • The Board approved the Cash Management Plan’s use of a credit card in case of emergency.

“This is not some holein-the-wall bar where people go to get drunk or get into a fight,” Rickard said. “This is a nice, clean place where people can go hear local and national talent. So far business has been pretty good. It didn’t take long to get the word out. The weekends have been super. We are bringing in a lot of people from out of town.” A Super Bowl partty is being planned for this
Sunday as well. Rickard said the party will be catered with food and drinks and a charity raffle will be held to benefit an organization that rescues greyhounds.
