CHURCH STREET SCHOOL — A RETROSPECTIVE

Walser to step down at end of term

The Good Ole Days

BY ERIN WILTGEN Staff Writer Dr. Max Walser has walked a long road. Even eight years as a Davidson County Commissioner b a r e l y ripple the pond of a 40-year career in public service. But now, with a Walser sense of chivalry in mind, the Board Chairman has decided to step down, declaring he will not run for reelection. “I set some goals for myself, and I’ve accomplished some of those goals,” Walser said. “It’s sort of time to move on.” This firm belief in not lingering in office

Editor’s Note: The following is the first of a three-part series on Church Street School.

Jewel Welborn can still picture it — wandering the long, window-lined hallways, grinning and shouting at classmates, scarfing down bowls full of pinto beans at lunchtime. And though Welborn hasn’t walked the halls of Church Street School since the late 1950s, she said the experiences and memories formed there have never truly left her. “It was such a privilege to be a part of Church Street School,” she said. “We were so fortunate to have multiple black teachers at

‘Church Street was a symbol of honesty and pulling yourself up by your boot strings, making you believe in yourself.’ — Shirley Jones-Byrd that time that took time and had patience with us. I just truly enjoyed it.” Church Street School was first built in 1869 on Church Street as the first all-black school in Thomasville. The building moved to Jasper Street in 1937, retaining

the original name, but was closed in 1982 as part of the reorganization of the Thomasville School System. After lying abandoned for more than 20 years, the school burned down in 2000 and has since sat empty and forlorn, a shell of its former self. But for those whose lives were changed by the little school, the memories that now haunt its vacant classrooms still live on. “Church Street was a symbol of honesty and pulling yourself up by your boot strings, making you believe in yourself,” said Shirley Jones-Byrd, who attended the school from 1943 to 1953. Among all the lessons — both academic and practical — one of the most important things the

has been a cornerstone to Walser’s approach to public service, beginning when he became superintendent of Davidson County Schools in 1985. He told the Board of Education that he would serve only 12 years, and, true to his word, he respectfully denied a re-contract when his self-imposed time limit expired. When Walser ran for Commissioner in 2002, he told his wife and others in the community that eight years later he would leave office. And as that time approaches, Walser says he has no regrets. In his time as Commissioner, the board has built four schools and is in the process of buying land to construct two more. Though

Thomasville Police Department welcomed two new additions to the force at a swearing-in ceremony Friday afternoon in the City Council Chambers. Police officers Josh Wolfe and Brittany Wheeles placed their hands on the Bible and swore to uphold the law with Mayor Joe Bennett presiding over the ceremony. TPD Chief Jeff Insley said he discovered the two while serving as guest speaker at a basic law enforcement training graduation. Their ability to stand out from other candidates made them logical choices, Insley said.

“They were interested in coming here and they were interested in change,” Insley said. “They heard about some of the things we were doing here and they wanted to be a part of it. They are brand new right out of rookie school. They’re really green, but we’re really looking forward to having them.” Wheeles is a Thomasville native who knew she wanted to be a police officer at a very young age. Wheeles graduated from East Davidson High School in 2005 and earned her bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from Western Carolina University four years later. Wheeles said she hopes to

Coble released after fainting spell BY ELIOT DUKE Staff Writer HIGH POINT — U.S. Rep. Howard Coble (R-NC) was in good spirits Friday afternoon after being released from High Point Regional Hospital a little more than 24 hours after North Carolina’s longest serving republican congressman fainted at a local luncheon and hit his head. Coble, 78, was rushed to the hospital Thursday when he fainted at a High Point Rotary Club meeting. He was held overnight for observation.

“You all have had me as the number one story for the past couple of days,” Coble said to reporters. “Tiger Woods bumped me off from number one, and I was really moved by his ‘presentation,’ tongue in cheek. With all the media around with my health issue it must be a slow news day.” Coble told reporters he was speaking at the High Point Rotary Club for about 30 minutes before the meeting went into a short adjournment. While talking with two real estate lawyers, Coble said he started feeling a

little dizzy. “I recall being foggy,” said Coble. “I was told my eyes bulged and I fell and hit my head. They say I was out for less than a minute. I was alert when I came to, but the hit on the head is what concerned people. My preacher just joined me and I told him I hoped he wasn’t here to confirm last rites. He assured me that was not the purpose of his call.” Coble thanked the staff of HPRH and said he feels fine after his first ever fainting episode. He

Partisanship par for course VIEWPOINT

DAVID HARSANYI Syndicated Columnist It’s peculiar to see so many people who embark on political careers claim later that they have deep-seated moral aversions to politics. Hey, they may join parties, but they simply can’t tolerate partisanship. When Sen. Evan Bayh, D-Ind., announced his decision not to run for re-election this year, he became the latest spurned statesman to sound the phony alarm about the “brain-dead” and cancerous hyper-partisanship that allegedly is calcifying now in Washington. No one can blame an honest man for fleeing politics, but Bayh should not have denigrated one of the vital functions of governance in a free society: partisanship. One can be a partisan and have brains. But someone with brains should not confuse his own political impotence with the End of Days. Is partisanship, hyper or otherwise, destructive? That’s a matter of perspective, I suppose. For guidance, let’s turn to Rep. Barney Frank, powerful chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, who recently grumbled to a group of college students that partisanship is getting “out of control” in Congress. Scary stuff. Yet in a 2004 piece written by Frank for The Gay & Lesbian Review, titled “In Praise of Partisanship,” Frank asserted that “partisanship, properly understood, is not only a valid approach; it is in our current political climate the most effective way to fight for some very important values.” So, you see, partisanship is valid when “properly understood” and when “important values” are at stake in a “political climate” that is approved by ... well, the right people. The congress-

man wrote this when he was in the minority (the right “political climate,” no doubt) and he was yearning for an influential chairmanship (what politicians refer to as an “important value”). And that is how to understand the situation properly. Or take the Rev. Jim Wallis, a well-known progressive activist, whose religious affiliation gives his comments unwarranted gravitas. He told The Denver Post this week that he believes that “the nation is in deep trouble. The political system is broken.” Really? “Deep trouble”? Perhaps — if the political system you’re pining for happens to be one-party rule. I mean, is there a beer hall putsch in the works? Is the wood being gathered for guillotines? Have the midterm elections been canceled? When the sitting vice president guns down the former treasury secretary on a beach in New Jersey, politics might be broken. (Then again, let’s also concede that dueling is, in general, more honorable than relying on 527s to do your dirty work.) But if Democrats, only a year after hosannas rained down on their man, aren’t getting their way, it is no reflection on the system. In fact, at the same time partisanship is unseemly, it is generally constructive. It is also the normal state of being. The two-party system, with all its obvious faults, allows most of you to vote for some generally acceptable envoy to advocate for whatever ideological belief system you’ve decided on that election cycle. In this system, two powerful parties of consensus try to destroy each other and, at the same time, keep an eye on polls. And if polls are any indication, it seems as if the process is working quite well these days. So relax; the republic will survive — with partisanship and without Evan Bayh.

What went wrong? VIEWPOINT

SUSAN ESTRICH Syndicated Columnist Something has gone very wrong. Was it just a year ago that Democrats assumed more control in Washington than the party has had in my lifetime? It was. Was it just a year ago that President Obama promised a new era of change, bipartisanship and transparency? It was. Just weeks into office, the president pushed through a major stimulus package to save the American economy, restore credit, build infrastructure and create jobs. Now, unable to get Republicans to support what was their idea — a bipartisan commission on the deficit — the president has appointed one of his own, complete with warnings about how the deficit will sink us in the future if we fail to act. Republicans shouldn’t be able to get away with opposing a bipartisan effort to reduce the deficit, but they can and they have, for one simple reason: The country has turned. The president and the Democrats may have only lost one Senate seat (so far), but in terms of actual control, they have lost much more. Republicans can just say no as long as the country seems to agree with them. Do you want to guess what they’ll be saying to television cameras next week at the “negotiating” session on health care? So what went wrong? Every Democrat I talk to has a different answer or, rather, a different person to blame. It was Nancy Pelosi’s fault or Harry Reid’s or

Rahm Emanuel’s. Should have made a bigger show of reaching out to Republicans; shouldn’t have cut those deals behind closed doors. It is, I am told every day, a communications problem. Years ago, when I was working in politics, I had a meeting with our pollsters that I’ll never forget. After a particularly detailed (and negative) survey, one of the guys who had been polling for years leaned over to me and said, “We have a very big problem. People just don’t like our candidate.” Not an ideological problem. Not a problem with his experience or positions. They just didn’t like him. Of course, you can’t tell your candidate that the people don’t like him. So we looked at each other and shook our heads. There is only one way to translate that result. Candidate, we said to him, the people don’t know you. he White House is trying to treat the problem with its health care proposal as a communications problem. It’s not that people don’t want the plan; they just don’t know how great it is. Our fault, says the president, for not communicating more effectively. Not so fast. Barack Obama is a great communicator. He’s talked a lot about health care in the past year. And I’ve been listening. I know just as many horror stories as they do about what happens to people with pre-existing conditions, how you can’t get insurance no matter what you’re willing to pay, and if you have it, you can’t afford to give it up, no matter how many arms and legs they charge you or how bad the coverage. I’m all for letting people with pre-existing conditions buy affordable insurance. But letting a slew of older, sicker people into any pool will dramatically increase premiums for everyone in that pool. (What did they say about letting everyone into the pool with federal workers?) So you have to make the young, healthy

people join, too, or the costs will be exorbitant. So, hypothetically, now everyone has insurance — either they pay for it, or we do. Then what happens? Everybody gets more health care. Just exactly how does that save us money? Just exactly how do we pay for it? Cost controls? In order to get refills for my arthritis medicine every month, I have to get pre-approval each time from the insurance company, which this week has taken most of the week. I always get the approval, of course, because this is medicine you don’t stop taking after a month or two. If the insurance company saves money, it’s only because making the pharmacist jump through more hoops sometimes means I miss a dose or two. This cannot be what they mean by cost control. Get rid of unnecessary tests? I’m not really into unnecessary tests. It’s getting the necessary tests approved that causes so much trouble. Paying doctors and hospitals less to give us more? That’s bound to work… It’s not a communications problem. What’s gone wrong is that people see the country swimming in debt, see the jobs recovery lagging, see friends and neighbors who are not even hanging on, and they just don’t know how this administration is planning to pay for a massive health care reform effort. The appointment of a bipartisan commission on the deficit only underscores the problem and makes it seem that the administration has no answer for it except another new spending program. “Just say no” isn’t the answer to the need for health care reform — but neither is another big spending program when we are being told our historic debt is a ticking time bomb for our children.

A6 – Thomasville Times – Saturday, February 20, 2010

FROM PAGE A1 SCHOOL From page A1 school created was a sense of community. “After school was out, I could run around the school and play and swing,” Jones-Byrd said. “And if I had homework to do, I could do it there. We would all just love to play and laugh and talk.” Jones-Byrd lived out of town and rode a bus to school every day, toting a bag lunch filled with country biscuits. And every day, the young girl would do everything she could to trade her lunch for the city kids’ light bread sandwiches. “I would help them with their homework,” she said. “I would help them any way to get a light bread sandwich.” Lunch-sharing aside, students assisted each other with school work constantly, Jones-Byrd says. If she ever had a question about a math problem, Jones-Byrd would look to kids in the older grades for help. “There were just good friends, and everybody was always there to help one another,” she said. “Everybody worked together, kind of like a family.” Even the teachers had a role in that familial pattern, leading extra-curricular activities, pushing students to do their best and visiting parents at home when a child failed to meet expectations. “Everybody was your momma, everybody was

your daddy,” said Pauline Lyons, who graduated from Church Street School in 1956. “If we did anything wrong, that principal was at our house.” Such dedication to the student’s performance really showed how the teachers cared, JonesByrd says. “I found that the instructors were so concerned about the school and the students there that it really made a difference, and their light would shine through,” she said. Unfortunately it also kept parents in the loop about any misbehavior in the classroom. Thomas Siler, who graduated in 1949, says one of his teachers attended church with his family and would often inform his mother of any slip-ups he made at school, which sometimes led to a double reprimand for the young boy. Looking back, though, Siler said he liked how involved the teachers were. “I think it made a better man out of me,” Siler said. Part of the reason for Church Street School’s close-knit atmosphere rested in the fact that at the time, black children had no where else to go. The school sponsored most social events, and the school sports and marching band became the kids’ main pasttimes. Jones-Byrd says that, to this day, she can recite the school cheer chanted at football games, which form some of her best

WALSER From page A1 the Wilcox Bridge project is still in the works, Walser said he feels good about the way things have gone. “All in all, I feel like I’ve accomplished a lot with the support and help of my fellow commissioners,” he said. “I’m at peace with my decision. I think I’ve done the right thing.” Other commissioners have recognized and appreciated the hard work Walser has brought to the table throughout his time on the board. Besides developing useful contacts at the state level, Commissioner Fred McClure said that the Chairman has always spoken his mind. “He’s a good commissioner,” McClure said. “He does his homework. He’s not afraid to voice his opinion, and he lobbies for the things that he likes, which is what you need.” Despite differences in political opinion, McClure said he has come to respect Walser’s ideas. “Sometimes they’re not the same as mine,” McClure said laughing. “But that doesn’t make him less effective.” And that steady, solid presence will certainly be missed, especially after eight years, McClure says.

childhood memories. “That was my favorite thing,” she said. “I learned an awful lot in school, but I always kept that in mind.” John Welborn, who graduated in 1954, said he can still feel the adrenaline rush of weekly band practice. “We would march up Church Street and march up Main Street, down through town,” he said. “People in the stores would come out on the street and come watch us, that’s how good we were. It was a thrill.” Even recreational hangouts tended to organize around the school, Siler says. “Church Street was the place where all the young people gathered,” he said. “If you weren’t in class, you were on the playground. It was sort of like the foundation and the meeting place.” And so many years later, nothing has changed. Siler says he still remains in contact with his classmates. One of his friends, who lives in Greensboro, drives down from time to time for lunch. Another, from New York, visits Thomasville every summer. “We always get together — laugh and talk and have a good time,” Siler said. “They’re just like family.” Staff Writer Erin Wiltgen can be reached at 8883576, or at newsdesk@tvilletimes.com. Look for part two of this series in Tuesday’s Times.

“You get to where you work together as a team, and you get to where you appreciate one another’s strengths and try to step in where the weaknesses are,” he said. “Any time you lose a team member, it impacts you, and you feel it.” Even though Walser says he, too, will miss his time as a commissioner, particularly helping residents navigate the political system, the chairman said he is steadfast in his decision. Others in his life aren’t too sure he’ll follow through, though “My wife does not believe that I can come back to my little farm and look out at the horses,” Walser said. While Walser said he couldn’t guarantee he would never reenter the political scene, he said at this point he has no intention of working in government. Instead, he’s looking at reopening doors as a volunteer in Central America, where he has done mission work eight times since 1997. “I’m sure I’ll be involved in something somehow giving back to the community,” he said. Wherever his path takes him, Walser said he wants to take some time for family. “It’s time for me to play with my grandkids,” he said. “I’ve given 40 years of my life to public service. It’s someone else’s turn now.”

Bessie L. Greer

COBLE From page A1 called the ordeal a “very uneasy and helpless feeling.” Doctors did several tests on Coble but were unable to determine what caused him to faint. “This is a case of first impression for me because I’ve never fainted before,” Coble said. “I guess I am hard-headed because there was no damage to my head. Doctors are at a loss too. This could be an isolated event, but on the other hand it could happen next month. They felt very comfortable releasing me.” Coble said he had a light breakfast Thursday morning but ate a hearty lunch with the High Point Rotary Club. Cardiologist Dr. Zav Tyson told Coble he thought the congress-

man had a long morning and was standing in one place without moving for an extended period of time. Coble will turn 79 in March and has represented North Carolina’s 6th district, which includes parts of Davidson, Guilford, Randolph, Rowan, Moore and Alamance counties, since 1985. Coble said he planned to spend Friday night at a nephew’s house in High Point and will be taking the next couple of days off. News of Coble fainting comes in the same week Guilford County Commissioner Billy Yow announced his plan to run against the congressman in the May primary. Coble already has filed for re-election and has been in the Piedmont all week while Congress is in recess for the President’s Day holiday.

Ed McDonald, Coble’s chief of staff, said he expects opponents to politicize the health scare in an effort to win the upcoming election. “That’s’ part of the political system,” said McDonald. “The way he battles it is by doing what he’s done for the past 26 years, and that’s being visible, being active and performing his duties both in Washington and here in North Carolina. “We were already hearing from our would-be opponents that we’re looking for somebody energetic to bring youthful energy to the job. I’ll challenge any of them to spend a day doing his schedule and we’ll see how they feel at the end of the day.” Staff Writer Eliot Duke can be reached at 888-3578, or duke@tvilletimes.com.

Everybody’s Day garners statewide awards TIMES STAFF REPORT

Everybody’s Day garnered two state-wide awards recently from the North Carolina Association of Festivals & Events. Nancy Higgins-Horner was recognized as “Best Volunteer” and Thomasville Medical Center received the “Sponsor of the Year” award. These are singular awards representing the best single volunteer and best individual sponsor throughout the state. “We are overjoyed for Nancy’s recognition,” saID Thomasville Chamber of Commerce President Doug Croft. “Nancy is just awesome and we really wouldn’t want to do an Everybody’s Day without her.” Festival organizers nominated Higgins-Horner because of her many volunteer roles with the festival. She helps with the craft vendors, directing them to their respective spaces. She monitors the vendors to insure they are selling the appropriate items. Some years, Higgins-Horner is seen staffing the information and souvenir booth. A few years ago, Higgins-Horner designed a color-coded system for speeding up the direction and set up time for vendors. During the week prior to each year’s event, she is outside marking vendor spaces throughout the festival’s footprint. Croft reflects to a few

years ago when Nancy brought a fresh face to the festival’s steering committee. Today, her experience provides tremendous insight. Croft and assistant Judy Smith teasingly refer to Higgins as their “enforcer.” “Inevitably on festival morning, there is a challenge somewhere. It can be a very stressful time. But Nancy is out stressreducer. She just solves problems, still within the framework of the festival’s rules.” Higgins-Horner received her award in a surprise presentation at the Chamber of Commerce’s Board meeting on Tuesday. “I was snookered into attending the Board meeting and then totally surprised by the award. I feel so undeserving.” She graciously thanked the Chamber leaders who nominated her. 2010 marks the second time that Thomasville Medical Center has been “Sponsor of the Year.” “I think that just validates the incredible example they set as a sponsor,” saID Croft. “Everybody’s Day has grown tremendously and that growth took off when Thomasville Medical Center came on board.” Jane Wilder, Community Relations Director for Thomasville Medical Center accepted the award on behalf of the hospital. “Thomasville Medical Center is honored to be recognized as sponsor of the year,” Wilder said. “The Everybody’s

Day Festival serves as a tremendous opportunity for the medical center to partner with the Thomasville Area Chamber of Commerce. The medical center has been a vital part of the community for 80 years this year, and the festival serves as great method for us to give back to the community that has supported us and entrusted us with their medical care for so many years. The festival is also an awesome nontraditional venue to reach thousands of people with medical information and healthy living tips while they are enjoying the wide variety of activities at Everybody’s Day.” Everybody’s Day has been earning awards for over a decade. Since 1997, the festival has garnered fourteen awards from the North Carolina Association of Festivals & Events as well as the Southeast Tourism Society. “We’re very proud to be recognized by our peers,” said Croft. “When you think of most of the bigtime festivals in the state, they are operated by fulltime staffs with much bigger budgets. Our staff is full-time operating a Chamber of Commerce. Everybody’s Day is just one of our many programs. So, we are extremely proud to be recognized at the same level as many of the state’s best events.” • 1997 – Best Unique Merchandise • 1998 – Sponsor of the Year (Lexington State Bank)

Guest Columnist I am still not quite over my cold. I have been following my own advice and getting some extra rest. I actually feel a lot better, but I’m still fighting some lingering symptoms. Thankfully we have over-the-counter drugs to help ease the symptoms. To be honest, I am getting tired of the affects those drugs are having on my system, so I must be getting better. I take the real Sudafed; you know, the kind that you have to sign your life away to get from the pharmacy. While that stuff helps my sinuses, it gets me so hyped up I have a hard time sleeping. So at night, I have to take a Tylenol PM with the sleep aide so I can sleep. I am looking forward to being well so I can kick both of these habits. My family doctor often said, “Sometimes the cure is worse than the cold.” One of the side affects of taking the Tylenol PM is that I don’t dream for several nights. I have a very powerful imagination and I am a very vivid dreamer. After several nights of not dreaming, I really miss them. When my body has finally adjusted to the medicine, I begin to dream again. Some of the dreams are so powerful that they

dreamed about praying with someone and seeing them instantly healed? Have you ever thought about how you might share the gospel with someone and help them to receive Jesus as their Savior? Have you ever wondered if God could use you to help someone break a harmful addiction in their life? Those are God dreams. God can use you. God can work through you. God’s given you dreams that He wants you to pursue. I don’t recommend throwing everything away to follow a whim. I believe we can take little steps day-by-day that can help us fulfill our dreams. Taking little steps now will help us to take the big steps of faith in the future. First we have to take the step of dreaming the dream before we can move forward in faith to see them fulfilled. I believe that God has given you a dream, a desire that you want to see fulfilled. I want to encourage you to take some little steps of faith that will lead you down the path of fulfilling your dream. Maybe you need to give up something, maybe you need to go to school, or maybe you need to begin something new. There is no time like today to take those first couple of steps toward reaching your dream. One step in the right direction can lead you to a life of dreams that are fulfilled.

evoke strong emotions from me when I wake up. Sometimes I wake up laughing or crying, depending on the dream. I believe that God can speak to us through our dreams. Through the years I have had a number of dreams where I felt God was telling me something. Sometimes it was insight into situations; others were guidance for the future. I have even asked God to speak to me through dreams. Often in the morning I will review my dreams so I won’t forget them. While I realize that many dreams are just crazy thoughts, I know that God can use them to speak to us. God used dreams to speak to Joseph about becoming a great leader one day. God used Joseph’s ability to understand and interpret dreams to save both the Egyptian people and his own family. I believe that God wants to speak to us and He will use many ways to communicate with us, including our dreams. While the dreams we have at night can be a source of great fun, fantasy, and mystery, I think the dreams we have about our life are of much more importance. We all have hopes and dreams for the future. Most of us work hard and hope to retire and enjoy the fruits of our labor. We think about and even fantasize about how we will spend our time. But I think we should dream about what God can do through us. When you think about your retirement, have you ever considered how you might be able to serve the Lord more because you won’t have to work? Have you ever

CCC TOURNAMENT FINAL

Slow first quarter costs East girls CALENDAR TODAY SOFTBALL Scrimmage E. Davidson @ W. Forsyth TBA SOFTBALL Scrimmage Ledford @ Hickory 11 a.m.

BY ZACH KEPLEY Sports Editor If East Davidson could ever get over its first quarter funk against Salisbury, they might have a shot at taking out the top team in the state. Like it has in two previous meetings with the Hornets, the Lady Golden Eagles fell behind by double digits Friday in the Central Carolina Conference finals at Thomasville, which led to a 63-40 loss. East played with Salisbury for the last three quarters scoring 38

points to the Hornets’ 42, but the first quarter was the one that did in the Lady Eagles. Salisbury played physical and used its significant height advantage, racing to a 19-0 start and leading 22-2 after the first eight minutes. “I think the girls were ready, but for whatever reason things were not falling our way,” said East coach Brian Eddinger. “I wish I had a good explanation because I would have stopped it sooner.” Down 25-7, East put together a little something with Taylor Hallman hit-

ting a 3-pointer and Chelsea Turner scoring in the post, but Salisbury would respond by leading 31-14 at the half.

East did compete much better in the second half, but never had that big run in them to put pressure on the Hornets. Salisbury maintained a

48-26 lead through three quarters, then dropped the hammer to nail down the conference tournament championship. East’s Stacy Hicks had just dropped in a 3 to make it 49-29, but a 8-0 Salisbury run left the Eagles tired and with little hope. “I am proud the girls played hard the last three quarters and never gave up,” Eddinger said. “A lot of teams would have given in but they fought the entire way.” Candace Fox battled for 16 points to lead East.

coach Matt Jacobs. “I just wish we would have focused a little more on the line.” East’s troubles began in the first half, where along with the free throws, they were missing layups and shots from just a couple feet away. That allowed Salisbury to build a 35-20 lead at halftime. Jahaan Hailey was a key cog in helping them take the 15-point edge, scoring all 19 of his points during the first two quarters. Salisbury went up by 17 four minutes into the third quarter, but the resilient Eagles would no just sit and

Good things happen to those that believe. For much of this season, the Thomasville Bulldogs have struggled to believe they can play with the best and win a game during crunch time. Thursday evening in its Central Carolina Conference semifinal against archrival Lexington, they realized what they are capable of doing. THS dominated for three quarters, then held off a furious rally by the Yellow Jackets to stun the No. 1 seed 67-65. Cord Fordham led the Bulldog attack with 16 points while Isaiah Williams and Tevin Davis scored 12 and De Dow 11. Lexington was paced by Quandarious Crump’s 20 points and 17 from Robbie Curry. “For the biggest part of this year it seems like we have been battling uphill,” said Thomasville coach Tony Clark. “There comes a point where you just have to keep on believing. This win was about believing, something they couldn’t quite see but just trust in the fact that their coaches believed in them, their school believed in them and their families believed in them. It was just a fantastic effort by our guys and one hell of an effort by the Yellow Jackets.” Having already lost to Lexington twice this season, Thomasville had a chip on its shoulder and they were letting loose on the Jackets. With 5:05 remaining in the game, the Bulldogs held a 58-44 lead, and the favorite coming into the tournament started forcing shots and trying to get all the points back at

Pink: The new black Not too long ago, I had a conversation with a woman who felt that the new attraction to pink in guns, fishing rods, and outdoor clothing was condescending to women. I think she was missing the point. I see the recent rash of pink outdoor products as a validation that women are welcome. I began fishing, shooting, and hunting as a way to spend more time with my husband, Dick. What I found was a fulfilling hobby where I was appreciated for who I was in spite of the fact that, as a woman, I’m a minority. My first experience with shooting was with a woman shooting coach who did a much better job of teaching me to shoot than Dick. Once I did begin to hit targets, all the men at the writers weekend encouraged me and insisted I hunt the next morning. At the dinner table that night, they encouraged me and tried to explain why I’d have a good time. The fact is, they were right and delighted when I did well and enjoyed it. My first shooting competition was in Friendsville, Penn. and I was given shells and the loan of a golf cart because the course was muddy. The guys were so pleased to have some women shooting they did everything possible to make us welcome. Last spring, I took a friend fishing on the Roanoke River. As we fished, the guys on the river were more considerate of our boat than they are when I’m on the boat with my husband. When boats passed our little skiff, they waved, smiled, and slowed down for less wake in the water. It’s not that they were flirting, they were just being thoughtful. I think they were making sure that our experience on the water was completely positive. I know I don’t know as much about a lot of outdoor topics as the guys who’ve been doing it for years and I don’t pretend to be an expert. I make mistakes. This fall, I did a live TV segment and mentioned that game laws required wearing blaze orange to dove hunt; I meant quail hunt. I know somebody noticed the mistake but no one made a big deal of it. I think I beat myself up more than anyone else over these mistakes. On the flipside of that there are little things that happen that really make me feel good. Not too long ago, a member of our shooting club introduced one of his friends to my husband.

OFF THE PORCH

CHERIE JONES Outdoor Columnist The friend said, “I think I met you before, are you married to the woman who shoots so well?” Comments like that can make anyone feel good. The ones that really get me are the guys who give me the “little lady” routine from time to time, but that just makes it more fun if I manage to out shoot or out fish them. The majority of the “help-

ful” suggestions I get are given in the spirit of genuine benevolence. Chivalry is not dead and that’s what I think PINK is all about. What bothers me the most is that the whole outdoors industry is really trying to draw women in to it but the majority of the women aren’t opening up and giving it an honest try. I wear pink as a highlight, like the colors of a sisterhood. I don’t want the guys I fish and shoot with to think I’m a sissy girl, but I don’t want them to think I’m another guy, either. The main thing I want is for more women to find out how much fun we can all have out there. Come on girls, get out there with me. Visit Cherie and Dick’s website at offtheporchmedia. com.

SPORTS Town. Blue Devils edge Hurricanes YourYour

BY BRYAN STRICKLAND Durham Herald Sun

MIAMI, Fla. — Duke junior Kyle Singler already had one black eye. He certainly didn’t want another. Singler, sporting a shiner suffered in practice Monday, took a figurative blow Wednesday night when Miami ran out to a 12-point halftime lead. But Singler made sure this one didn’t leave a mark. He scored the Blue Devils’ first nine points of the second half, and Duke erased its deficit within five minutes and eventually came away with an 81-74 victory at BankUnited Center. “Every one of us felt like we weren’t playing as hard as we could, and we just weren’t being smart,” said Singler, who scored 16 of his game-high 22 points in the second half. “We weren’t playing defense. We needed to get back to that, and we played great in the second half.” What Singler started, his two partners in the Blue Devils’ big three finished. Nolan Smith (21 points) and Jon Scheyer (15) combined to hit four consecutive 3-pointers down the stretch to seal the deal, scoring 33 points between them in the second half after scoring three between them in the first half on 1-of-13 shooting. All told, the trio went from nine points in the first half to 49 in the second half. “They played with a much different resolve in the second half,” said Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski, who was fuzzy on his halftime speech. “I

COST From page B1 watch the game unravel. East closed out the third on a 12-4 run that would continue into the fourth and final quarter. Blake Dodd converted a lob from Zach Palmer and Keaton Hawks scored on the break to make it a 4843 contest. Jacobs told his team to “dig in” after the made basket, and they did getting a turnover. But they could not get any closer than the five points to the finish. Darien Rankin — much

don’t even remember what I said — nothing complimentary. “I did tell them, ‘It’s up to you.’ Nothing I said changed things around. What they did is what changed things around.” The No. 6 Blue Devils (22-4, 10-2 ACC) were outplayed in every way by the Hurricanes (17-9, 3-9) in the first half. Duke couldn’t — or didn’t — handle Miami’s zone defense in the opening half, shooting 31.3 percent and turning the ball over nine times. The Blue Devils also couldn’t handle freshman guard Durand Scott — who scored 11 of his 19 points in the first half, capped by a buzzer-beater for a 37-25 lead — nor could they handle big man Dwayne Collins. Collins, who scored 26 when Miami knocked off the Blue Devils two years ago in their most recent visit to south Florida, scored nine in the first half and kept attacking in the second half, finishing with 21 points thanks to 11-of-14 shooting from the free throw line. Guard James Dews picked up where Scott left off, scoring 13 of his 16 in the second half, but Miami needed more to match Duke’s threeheaded monster. “The first half, we did a great job on the big three,” Miami coach Frank Haith said. “The second half, they just completely took over. “Singler, at the beginning of the second half, really just took over the game.” Singler started the spirited second half with a 3-pointer — Duke hit 13 of 29 on the night — and didn’t slow down

like Hailey did in the first half — took over and scored 15 of his 19 points in the second half. His free-throw shooting down the stretch kept the Eagles out of reach and eventually left them out of time. “I challenged them at halftime to do all of the little things,” said Jacobs. “We did do all the little things — out-hustle them and out-work them. We outplayed them in the second half, but we were awful from the free-throw line.” East, 12-11, was led by Jess Dillard’s 13 points with Hawks having 12.

until after he hit another shot from outside the arc at the 15:10 mark to cap a 17-4 start to the half for a 42-41 lead. Miami never would lead again. Even with the offensive fireworks, Krzyzewski gave much of the credit to Duke’s defensive fire. Miami shot 55.6 percent to Duke’s 41.7, but both teams made 25 field goals. Miami attempted just 45 shots to 60 for Duke thanks to 22 turnovers. “In the second half, I thought our defense, especially in the first eight or nine minutes, was sensational,” Krzyzewski said. “It’s a heck of a win for us, because Miami was unbelievably ready and totally outplayed us in the first half.” Near the 10-minute mark, Duke built its lead to 54-46, but the Hurricanes got going again and reeled off six quick points to pull within 54-52. Things remained tight heading to the final six minutes, but that’s when Scheyer — 1-of-12 to that point — drained 3-pointers on back-toback possessions to push the advantage to 64-59. Brian Zoubek, who recorded his second straight strong game with 10 points and a career-high five steals, hit a couple of free throws, and then Smith drilled consecutive 3-pointers to send Duke to the final two minutes with a ninepoint lead. “I think we showed a lot of heart,” Scheyer said. “We got together [at halftime] and said, ‘Hey, we know what we need to do. It’s on us. We’re not losing this game.’ “

From page B1 once. But the shots finally did start falling for LHS, and almost all of them came from behind the arc. Wade Goff hit two in a row and three more fell through to make it 64-59 with 2:28 to go. Goff then hit two free throws as did Codie Boger, and suddenly the 14point lead three minutes before had dwindled to one. “You have to give them more credit than you have to blame us,” said Clark of the comeback. “They were tenacious and hit some shots that were out of this planet.” After a Thomasville timeout, Dow found Donovan Merchant for a layin, then Lexington missed a couple of 3s at the other end and Williams snatched the rebound and was fouled. He hit one of two free throws, and the action went the other way. Al Challenger was fouled for the Jackets, but missed the front end of a one-and-one. Davis secured that rebound, but he missed both free throws, leaving Lexington a chance. Challenger laid the ball in with .5 seconds left that cut it to two, but Thomasville inbounded the ball long to pull out the nailbiter. “They had me nervous,” admitted Fordham afterwards. “We knew we had to get a hand out on the shooter and close the game out. We have not been good this year at closing, but we closed it out nice. We have had a rocky season and I think it will just go up from here.” Thomasville improved its record to 8-12. Lexington falls to 12-13.

Gov. Perdue announces high-speed rail Hospice to hold golf tourney money to provide as many as 4,800 jobs TIMES S R TAFF EPORT

TIMES STAFF REPORT

RALEIGH — Gov. Bev Perdue announced earlier this week that the federal high-speed rail grant to North Carolina will create or maintain as many as 4,800 private sector jobs in North Carolina over the next four years, with 1,000 of those expected this year alone as ready-to-go projects get under way. The jobs will come from more than 30 projects in 11 North Carolina counties that the governor identified today. The projects are being funded with the $545 million the state received through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) for further development of the Southeast High Speed Rail (SEHSR) Corridor and the state’s intercity passenger rail program. “These rail projects are going to have far-reaching benefits for North Carolinians,” said Gov. Perdue. “They will put people to work while providing transportation, environmental and energy benefits through reduced congestion and improved air quality.” The projects include purchasing and rebuilding locomotives and passenger cars, improving stations, building passing sidings and double tracks between Greensboro and Charlotte as well as closing highway-railroad crossings, upgrading private crossings and constructing new highway bridges. A complete list of projects is attached. The projects are located in Alamance, Cabarrus, Davidson, Durham, Guilford, Halifax, Mecklenburg, Nash, Northhampton, Rowan and Wake counties and range from $340,000 in Cabarrus County for station improvements to more than $129 million in Mecklenburg County to begin modernizing the rail network. Several projects will begin in the next few months. Since the U.S. Department of Transportation designated Charlotte to Washington, D.C. as a high-speed rail corridor in 1992, NCDOT has invested more than $300 million in the state’s intercity passenger rail service for renovation and construction of train stations, track improvements and corridor preservation projects in order to pave the way for highspeed service. The state’s high-speed rail and intercity passenger rail grant award meshes with the goals outlined in NCDOT’s new Complete Streets policy, which calls for a diverse transportation infrastructure that encompasses all modes of travel, from bicycles and ferries to cars and rail. The corridor project is also in conjunction with the Statewide Logistics Plan, which leverages the state’s assets to improve the economic well-being of all North Carolinians. SEHSR is being developed incrementally between Charlotte and Washington, D.C. and will serve as a main street for East Coast travel. It will provide business and leisure travelers with a competitive alternative to air and auto for trips between 100-500 miles at top speeds of up to 90-110 miles per hour and an average speed of 86 m.p.h. ARRA funding will enable North Carolina to

continue its program of upgrading existing rail right of way. North Carolina partners with Amtrak and currently provides daily service to 16 North Carolina cities and to destinations along the East Coast. ARRA made available $8 billion in competitive grants for high-speed and intercity passenger rail across the country. Last

month, Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa P. Jackson announced the $545 million award for North Carolina to improve safety, service reliability and build network capacity— laying a foundation for more trains and higher speeds. Additional information is available at www.bytrain.org, www.sehsr.org and www.ncdot.gov.

PUBLIC PULSE

Are you prepared for a dental emergency?

Thousands of dental emergencies â&#x20AC;&#x201D; from injuries to a painful, abscessed tooth â&#x20AC;&#x201D; take place every day. Would you know what to do if your child broke a tooth or had a tooth knocked out while playing outdoors? What if you had a bad toothache in the middle of the night and couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get to the dentist until the next day? Know what to do can lessen the pain and save a tooth that might otherwise be lost. Keep your dental office phone number and an emergency number where the dentist can be reached after hours with other emergency numbers, such as your family doctor, and fire and police departments. Some families post these numbers on the refrigerator or inside a kitchen cabinet door near the phone. Call the dentist immediately for instructions on how to handle a dental emergency. Toothache: Rinse the mouth with warm water

to clean it out. Gently use dental floss or an interdental cleaner to remove any food or other debris that may be caught between the teeth. Never put aspirin or any other painkiller against the gums near the aching tooth. This could burn gum tissue. If the toothache persists, try to see the dentist. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rely on painkillers. They may temporarily relieve pain but your dentist should evaluate the condition. Knocked-out (avulsed) tooth: Try to find the tooth! This may not be as easy as you think if the injury took place on a playground, basketball court, or while skateboarding, so try to stay calm. Hold the tooth by the crown and rinse the root in water if the tooth is dirty. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t scrub it or remove any attached tissue fragments. If it is possible, gently insert and hold the tooth in its socket while you head to the dentist. If that is not possible, put the tooth in a cup of milk and

bring it to the dentist. Time is critical for successful reimplantation, so try to get to your dentist immediately. Broken tooth: Rinse your mouth with warm water to clean the area. Use cold compresses on the outside of the cheek to help reduce the swelling. Tongue or lip bites or wounds: Clean the area gently with a clean cloth and apply cold compresses to reduce any swelling. If the bleeding cannot be controlled, go to a hospital emergency room or clinic. You may be able to reduce bleeding from the tongue by pulling it forward and using gauze to put pressure on the wound.

Objects caught between teeth: Try to gently remove the object with dental floss. Never use a sharp instrument to remove any object that is stuck between your teeth. If you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t dislodge the object with floss, contact your dentist. Possible broken jaw: Apply cold compresses to control swelling. Get to the hospital emergency room immediately. For more information about health department services, community data, or health status data, contact the Public Information Officer at the Davidson County Health Department at 242-2354.

After being postponed twice the Silver Valley Civitan Special Olympics Western Dance and Social had also become a Winter Ball & Valentine party. Snow began to fall for a third consecutive weekend just as the music began. Nearly eighty people would not be denied a little boot scootinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fun before calling it an early evening due to weather conditions. Folks dressed western style gathered at the Rocky Acres Music Barn for a 14th consecutive year. The dance floor was filled on Friday, February 12 with Special Olympics athletes, their families and other invited guests.

The spirited crowd danced to music provided DJ Ken Beck of Denton. Civitan President Roger D. Barker presented club lapel pin #125 to Beck in appreciation for his service. Lawrence and Ann Prevette have provided their facility on John Lookabill Road each year since the event began in 1997. The Silver Valley Civitan Club organizes the event and provides refreshments. A Civitan committee headed by John and Debbie Hughes coordinated the food preparation that included pizza, chips, cookies and beverages. Sixteen members of the Civitan club provided various functions including transportation for several guests, serv-
