United Furniture bringing 150 jobs to county

Itty Bitty Kiddie Festival offers information, entertainment BY ELIOT DUKE Staff Writer

BY ERIN WILTGEN Staff Writer LEXINGTON — Even Lexington Mayor John Walser didn’t know the extent of the good news until Friday morning. When writing out his speech for the press conference announcing the commitment of a manufacturing company to a plant in Lexington, Walser left a blank line for the company’s name. And when he found out it was United Furniture Industries NC, LLC, he just couldn’t believe it. “I can’t get this smile off my face,” he said. “This is the best thing that’s happened to us in a long time.” United Furniture Industries NC, LLC — a national manufacturer of upholstered affordable living room furniture such as sofas, chairs, recliners and sleepers — has pledged to create 150 jobs and invest more than $3.3 million in Lexington over the next three years. The company is a wholly-owned subsidiary of United Furniture Industries, Inc., headquartered in Okolona, Miss. Other than the new plant in Davidson County, the company has five other locations, three in Mississippi and two in North Carolina. The North Carolina sites are in Archdale and Glenola, in Randolph County, and together employ about 400 people. “We are glad to be in Davidson County,” said company President Larry George. “It has been a long road, a process. We are looking forward to being here to create some jobs. I hope that we can add to the community.” United Furniture will

Food for Thought

WANT TO GO? WHAT: Itty Bitty Kiddie Festival

Thomasville Primary awarded for child nutrition BY ELIOT DUKE Staff Writer Staff and students at Thomasville Primary School enjoyed a moment in the spotlight Friday afternoon as local, state and federal dignitaries visited the campus to recognize a special achievement that culminates years of hard work and dedication to nutrition. During a special ceremony in the cafeteria, TPS was formally recognized as a 2010 USDA Healthier School Gold Award

winner for its outstanding nutrition environment and dedication to fighting childhood obesity. TPS is one of 654 schools across the United States and one of five in the state to receive such recognition. “I’m pleased to recognize TPS for achieving Gold-level status,” Jane Mandell, branch chief of the child nutrition division with the USDA, said. “The Healthier U.S. School Gold Award is one of the highest honors a school nutrition program can achieve and reflects a strong commitment to

provide students with additional healthy food options throughout the school campus, and to emphasize nutrition education and physical activity in the school curriculum.” In order to receive gold status, TPS, led by Brenda Watford, Thomasville City Schools child nutrition director, had to undergo two and half years of following strict USDA guidelines. Participating schools had to submit their entire menus for a

DCS calls on county to increase 2010-11 budget BY ERIN WILTGEN Staff Writer Davidson County Schools faces the classic 2010 catch-22 — how to improve a system with ever-dwindling funds. But even in the face of a potential funding cut from the state, the Davidson County Board of Education has set new goals. And to reach them, the board turns to the county, asking the Davidson County Board of Commissioners for a 3.5 percent increase in the local budget for the 2010-2011 school year. “Our goal, the superinten-

‘We need teachers. We have students, we have to have teachers. So we have to have money to pay them.’ — Pam Sink DCS Chief Finance Officer dent’s goal, for 2010-11 is to reduce the class size back to the 2008-09 year to enhance the quality of literacy instruction,” said Pam Sink, chief finance officer. “And to save jobs.” The local budget — the amount not covered by state or government funds — would total $25

Community Sponsor

Smart Start of Davidson County, a local non-profit organization committed to providing opportunities for young children, is offering parents a chance to see what programs are available to them this weekend while their kids are off playing. With support from Davidson County Local Interagency Council and Thomasville Medical Center, Smart Start is sponsoring the 11th annual Itty Bitty Kiddie Festival at the Davidson County Fairgrounds today from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. to raise awareness about the many services the agency offers families with young children. Admission is free with a canned or boxed food donation that will benefit Fairgrove Family Resource Center of Davidson County. “We try and do something a little different every year,” Linda Leon-

million if the commissioners approved the request, up from the $24 million of the current school year. Besides decreasing class sizes to improve the teacher-to-student ration — 2008-09 figures were 21.7 students per teacher at the elementary level, 25.5 per

teacher at the middle school level and 23.9 per teacher at the high school level — the increased budget will also go towards other basic needs. Sink said the cost of utilities will go up, and the school system hopes to update computers and software. Other cost increases are more complicated and link to the $11 million decrease in state budgetary funds last year. With that cut, the state also did away with five staff development programs, and local governments now must pick up

ard, executive director of Smart Start, said. “This is a great family day for people. It’s a great opportunity to let families know about the services we offer the community. Our organization not only delivers services but also funds services out in our community. So many of the services are free.” Smart Start of Davidson County offers readiness programs for children up to five years old in an effort to help them reach their potential by improving child care, parenting resources and access to health care. More than 30 agencies will be attending the fair, which has grown exponentially over the past decade. In its first year, the festival attracted less than 1,000 people, compared to 2009 when more than 3,000 attended.

offer an average annual wage comparable to Davidson County average annual wage of $29,640, though salaries will vary by position. Set to purchase the vacant Stanley Furniture distribution facility on Hackney Street, the company will assemble frame materials, foam and upholstered material from vendors into finished furniture. “You’ve got a mighty fine building,� Walser said. “It’ll be there when we’re gone.� Though the cooperation of state and local officials as well as proximity to existing North Carolina facilities played a role in the final decision, George said one of the main reasons the company chose Lexington was Davidson County’s rich history in furniture craftsmanship. “Just being a furniture area, we think the skill of the people in this area will be good,� he said. “We thought it would fit our needs very well. The decision in the end may have seemed obvious enough, but, as George said, it certainly was a process. County officials began talking with United Furniture more than a year ago. “It was a marathon effort,� said Bob Cottam, private consultant for the company. “We were faced with a daunting task.� Not only was the Davidson County Economic Development Commission — spearheaded by Steve Googe — involved in negotiations, so was the Davidson County Board of Commissioners, Walser, state representatives

such as Rep. Hugh Holliman and officials from the North Carolina Department of Commerce, to name a few. “If economic development were an Olympic sport, it wouldn’t be an individual event,� said Dale Carroll, deputy secretary of commerce. “It would be a team sport. We appreciate everybody that came together to make this project successful.� But the process doesn’t stop now. “The task we have today is we turn the page,� Cottam said. “On Monday, we’ve got to start the process of making furniture.� Cottam said United Furniture hopes to start production on May 15, though George was less clear on the dates. “I hate to put a time frame on it,� George said. “I would say soon.� George said he hopes to begin the hiring process in May, though he isn’t sure as of yet how or when the company will begin advertising the job openings. Though sooner is better than later, the county and Lexington officials at the meeting said they were more than thrilled with the guarantee of so many jobs to the area. Board of Commissioner Chairman Dr. Max Walser said that the county has lost 10,000 jobs over the past few years, 5,000 from the furniture industry. Since then, about 15,000 jobs have been created. John Walser went on to add that six ribbon cuttings have brought a total of 100 jobs, but most have been small companies. “It’s been a long dry spell,� John Walser said. “I think we’re starting to recover. It’s a very happy day in Lexington.�

And for many in the room, the coming of a new furniture company to Davidson County brings a personal touch. John Walser used to work for United Furniture in 1965. “I told a reporter earlier, it’s deja vu all over again,� he said. “She said, ‘I hope not.’ At least in the beginning we’ve got it right this time.� Max Walser’s father worked at Dixie Furniture Company, and though he didn’t make a lot of money, the board chairman said his dad was still able to raise his three kids and send them to college. “It was people like him in those industries that were the glue that held this community together,� Max Walser said. Near the end of the press conference, Carroll presented George with a decorative plate engraved with the state motto and Cottam with a North Carolina flag as a sign of the state and county’s appreciation. “When you created these jobs,� Carroll said, “you certainly are maintaining and living that state motto.�

High school juniors complete Youth Leadership Program TIMES STAFF REPORT

Nine 11th graders from throughout the county recently completed the Youth Leadership Davidson County (YLDC) program. YLDC, a program of the Thomasville and Lexington Chambers of Commerce, strengthens the leadership capacity of high school students. Highlights of the YLDC program were a challenge course, personality profiles and learning about global economics and global education. “I learned so much,� says India Green, a student at Sheets Memorial. “My eyes have been opened to major topics affecting my life. YLDC is an amazing program.� Kristen Livengood is also a student at Sheets. “YLDC opened my eyes. I loved this experience.� Kerri Gwynne from Get Real reflects about her new perspective of living in Davidson County. “I have more faith in Davidson County than I did before, and I know myself better.� Chamber leaders exude excitement when talking about the program. Doug Croft, President of the Thomasville Area Chamber of Commerce shares, “I get real excited when talking about this program. I can literally see these young people changing. It is a bonus for me to make such a contribution in their lives.� Croft compares his experience to that of a teacher. “I understand the pleasure that teachers must receive from seeing student growth within their classroom.� Diversification is an important component to the YLDC program. The youth participants come from a variety of schools as well as socio-ethnic backgrounds. According to Croft, that mix-

ture is another highlight for the participants. “Every year, we receive feedback about how much they like meeting and learning with other kids from other schools and throughout the county.� Sports rivalries seem to be a non-issue to these high school juniors. “I think that they realize that they are all on the same team with regard to their future in Davidson County,� adds Croft. The long-term impact of the program is stronger leadership for the county as these young adults transition into the workforce and civic involvement. Participants experience personal leadership and skill development with a focus on the themes of economic development, education, government and human services. Students who will be 11th graders during the 2010-2011 school year are eligible for next year’s YLDC program. Contact either the Thomasville Area or Lexington Area Chamber of Commerce for more information. Through an application process, local business leaders select participants for the program. Old Dominion Freight Lines, DavidsonWorks, Duke Energy and Laser Print Plus help sponsor the YLDC program. Completing the Youth leadership program this spring were: Bruce Belk - Extended Day School; India Green - Sheets Memorial Christian School; Kerri Gwynne - Get Real; Lawson Hodges - Thomasville High School; Christine Knight Davidson County Early College; Kristen Livengood - Sheets Memorial Christian School; Burke McDade - West Davidson High School; Aubrian Tuttle - Central Davidson High School; Kaitlyn Wilson - North Davidson High School.

Classic Comedy My 5-year-old granddaughter and I were having one of our art sessions. She needed a pair of scissors but the only ones around were a filigree-handled heirloom. I passed her the beautiful scissors and told her to take good care of them because they meant a lot to me.� Are they old?� she asked. Excited that she seemed interested in their history. I explained that they belonged to my mother and her mother. Well, that explains it,� she said. “Explains what?� I asked. “Why they don’t work.�

Hair Situations My 5-year-old grandson didn’t love his mother’s newly-bleached hair, which had gone from dark to almost white. “Gomma,� he said, “I liked my Mom’s hair better when it matched her eyebrows.� I’m gray now, but I use to dye my hair and sometimes it would come out bright red-orange. When I was with my 4-year-old grandson one day, a lady complimented him on his beautiful red hair. “It’s orange,� he said. “And some-

Just Asking “Hey Grandma, Why don’t you and Grandpa have names like the rest of us?� Driving my 6-yearold grandson home, I spotted a lady crossing the street with her cute little dog Matthew. I said, “Look at the cute little French poodle over there.� “Gammy, how do you know he’s French?�

You’re Only as Old as You Feel All my grandkids were swimming and 7-yearold Madison asked if I was going to wear my swimsuit, too. I teasingly told her told her that I was going to put on my bikini. Her eyes sparkled with excitement and she said, “Cool! People your age will think you’re hot!� My 3-year-old granddaughter Eva came into the kitchen and said, “Old lady would you please help me wipe my hands?� I was taken aback and my daughter asked her why she called me that. Eva answered, “Well she calls me young lady.�

How Old Are You Now? My 3-year old granddaughter once asked me, “Grandma, how old are you?� “How old do you think I am?� I asked. “Ten. You are 10.� “Nope , I said, I’m soon going to be 60 years old.� “Sixty?� she replied. “I didn’t know that was a number!� One day my son, his wife and my 3-year-old grandson were eating out with us and a man that knew us stopped by the

My 3-year-old granddaughter, Madelyn, was out for breakfast with us while our schnauzer, Whisky, waited in the car. Madelyn is a very chatty little girl and talked with our waitress the entire time we were there. When we finished our meal, the waitress asked what we were going to do next., and Madelyn — standing up in the booth for all to hear, of course — said, “Well, we have Whiskey in the car ...� I took my 6-year-old grandson to his favorite steak restaurant. Being very grown up, he ordered everything for himself. When the waiter asked him how he wanted his steak, he replied with a puzzled look,� You know ... on a plate.�

The Last Word One day, I was playing with my 4-yearold grandson and his race-car set. Later on, he was doing something that wasn’t allowed. After three warnings , I yelled at him to stop. He came over to me with a long face, head down and his lower lip quivering and climbed on my lap. He said, “I still love you, Nanna, but the next time you talk to me that way you will not play with me or my race-car set anymore.� I picked my 8-year-old nephew Balmir up from school every afternoon. He calls me Grandfather-Uncle-Bill. While at school sometimes, he talks and talks and talks — for this he gets in trouble. The other day I picked him up and he said to me,� Grandfather-Uncle-Bill, I was good at school today!� I thought to myself, thank goodness. He continued to talk and said to me,� Grandfather-UncleBill, will you please stop by the store and buy me some Starburst Candy — that candy just makes my tongue tingle and my tummy twirl.� Well have a great week!

Letters to the Editor To the Editor Wednesday, I was one of the four concerned voters of Davidson County who turned in a sworn affidavit to challenge Hege’s re-election bid. First, I would like to respond to Mr. Hege’s statement on April 14, 2010, after he had got word that four voters had turned out to present the affidavits. His words were “This is a political ploy”. “I am sure someone else motivated them to do this. Obviously, it tells me they are worried.” No, Mr. Hege, I personally am not worried whether you think it’s a political ploy. Since you have no idea, how I vote personally, you cannot say this is a political ploy. The action that is behind this move, is too keep you from standing in a high position of power and abusing it again. Mr. Hege, you brought shame to the residents of Davidson County, especially the citizen of Lexington and Thomasville, who have had to watch you make fools of us on your TV program, and your actions in the newspapers. Every one of us has to stand accountable for our actions. And you, Mr. Hege, had to stand and be held accountable. Mr.Hege, you will not be re-elected again, you will not take office again. Your time as Sheriff is over. Your name will be forever remembered as the sheriff that made Lexington a laughing stock all over the United States, as you strutted around Davidson County. You will not be in charge of the safety of my grandchildren who will one day grow up to be voters and citizens of Davidson County. They will be taught the values of how to pick an honest, God-fearing sheriff, who will protect the citizens of Davidson County. For everyone who says I cannot vote, because I have a felony against my record, YES, you can. The rules of Board of election is stated You may register to vote in North Carolina if you are: • A United States citizen; • 18 years old or older, or will be at the time of the next general election, or be at least 16 years old and understand that you must be at least 18 years old on election day of the general election in order to vote • a resident of North Carolina and the county precinct where you want to vote for at least 30 days before election; • not a convicted felon still in custody, on probation, or on parole. If you have served all parts of your sentence, you can register. Contact your local board of elections for more details If Hege can run for office with a felony against his record, everyone who has

served their time and off parole, can vote, so come on out and vote for your choice. Mr. Hege, the only thing motivating myself personally, is the safety of my grandchildren, and my dislike of corruption in any federal, state, county and local office. Jane Burdette Lexington

24-hour party people VIEWPOINT

To the Editor It is indeed a please to recommend Dick Johnson for the office of representative in the NC House. A lifelong resident of Davidson County, Dick knows how important it is to communicate effectively with the people of this district. Dick never meets a stranger and is very attentive to people and their needs. His father, the late Robert Johnson, was the owner/operator of Yadkin Valley Chevrolet. Robert taught Dick and his two brothers the value of hard work and treating people fairly and with integrity. Dick learned this lesson well and has a wonderful reputation in the car business as well as the real estate business where he now works. Married to an outstanding educator, Sandi Elliott Johnson, the father of two sons, he maintains a genuine interest in quality education for the children of our state. I am sure that he will work diligently to insure that our state continues to pursue quality in the classroom. Working with the EF foundation to place foreign exchange students with area families, Dick and his wife have seen first hand how small our world really is and how important it is to promoted understanding of people in our communities with different cultures around the world. Through this program, families have helped these students realize how similar we are in our desires and wishes for a world of peace and understanding. a life-long Methodist, Dick serves his church well. He has just completed serving as the co-chair of a successful capital campaign. Dick will work tirelessly to understand the issues that are facing our state and will work to bring information from experts and citizens alike to problem solve for developing the most effective strategies for a plan of change. He is a fiscal conservative and will base his economic decisions on this approach. I sincerely hope that each of you will give careful consideration and vote to send Dick Johnson to Raleigh for NC House. He is a man of integrity and will put the people of this district first.

DAVID HARSANYI Syndicated Columnist Yesterday I waded into a mass of tea party protesters gathered at the front of Colorado’s Capitol and completely forgot to brace myself for a “small-scale mimicry of Kristallnacht” (as New York Times columnist Frank Rich once characterized these events). As it turns out, earlier I happened to peruse a new CBS/New York Times poll detailing the attitudes of tea party activists, who, it turns out, are more educated than the average American, more reflective of mainstream anxieties than any populist movement in memory and more closely aligned philosophically with the wider electorate than any big-city newsroom in America. What seemed to be the biggest news derived from the poll nationally? A plurality of tea party activists do not deem Sarah Palin qualified for the presidency — proving, I suppose, that some people have the ability to be exceptionally fond of a political celebrity without elevating her to sainthood. More significantly, the polling showed that most tea party activists believe the taxes they pay are “fair.” The

largest number of them want their movement to work to reduce the size of government rather than focus on cutting budget deficits or lowering taxes. Whether you concur or not with this viewpoint, it exhibits more economic sophistication than we often hear from pandering senatorial candidates. It was news that tea party activists -- unlike our president or most senators -- send their children to public schools. (With a public monopoly in place, where else are they expected to send their children?) The majority of them also deem Social Security and Medicare worthy taxpayer burdens, putting a crimp in the left-wing mythology that the anarchist mob is about to explode. And though tea party supporters are more conservative than the average voter on social issues, as well — particularly abortion, according to a separate Gallup Poll — The New York Times reports that 8 in 10 tea party activists believe the movement should focus on economic issues rather than cultural ones. How long have we been hearing from moderate, sensible, worldly Republican types that if only — if only — the right found God on economic issues and lost God on the social ones, there would be an expansion of appeal and support? Apparently, they were right. Now, I won’t allege to have observed any sweeping displays of multiculturalism at the tea party shindig I attended (though without question, it featured more diversity than my own cloistered rock-ribbed lefty neighborhood). According to a recent USA Today/Gal-

lup poll, tea party “supporters skew right politically; but demographically, they are generally representative of the public at large.” More specifically, the economic strata in which the tea party movement resides will bear the brunt of Washington’s economic reorganization, namely the middle class. The majority of Americans are middleclass, and their concerns (the economy, job creation, etc.) more closely mirror the tea party than Washington’s progressive agenda (the environment, entitlements, etc.). Naturally, the hyperventilating and demonization of these crackpots who carry around copies of the Constitution and babble about the 10th Amendment will continue unabated. It is, perhaps, as much a matter of a cultural divergence as it is an ideological disagreement. Yet, once again, the evidence demonstrates that by the very definition of the word, the tea party is less “radical” than are the elected officials busy transforming the nation. Or, as one sign succinctly put it: “There are no crazies here. They are all in Washington, D.C.” Now, I wouldn’t go so far as to say there were “no crazies” there, but I can tell you every word on the sign was spelled correctly.

FROM PAGE A1 FOOD From page A1 an entire year, complete with the nutritional value of each food. Menus had to offer a different fruit and vegetable, 100 percent fruit juices and whole grains every day with dried beans appearing once a week. Children could only be served one percent of fat free milk, a la carte items had to have 35 percent less fat with zero transfat, and nothing could contain more than 200 calories. “This is so exciting for all of us,” said Watford. “We are so proud of everybody. Everybody really worked together and it turned out great. We have worked hard for this. We had to submit every food label, but it was worth it. The kids have really enjoyed today.” In addition to the nutritional requirements, students also had to be physically active for at least 90 minutes per week. TPS also sent home nutrition worksheets with students on a weekly basis to help educate parents and children on the importance of living a healthy lifestyle. As a way to celebrate its achievement, TPS students participated a variety of events leading up to the award ceremony. Across the campus, students played games such as a strawberry relay, couch potato tag and pyramid shopping frenzy. All of the games emphasized being active and physically fit. There also

was a fruit stand filled with pineapples, strawberries, bananas and other various produce. “This is a very proud day for all us,” TPS Principal Paula Gaylord said. “I am so pleased to be a part of such a wonderful school system. We are committed to educating the whole child and this shows that commitment. Special programs like Just Push Play are helping us to reach the goals we have to raise healthy, active children. Many of the people behind this are proud of what we have been able to do.” The USDA established the Healthier School Challenge in 2004 as a way to recognize institutions who are creating a healthier school environment through the promotion of good nutrition and physical activity. Watford said the next challenge is to earn the same recognition for the other three city schools. TPS is now eligible to receive the USDA Gold of Distinction Award, but even more stringent requirements must be met to achieve that status. Watford said a White House representative called her Thursday and congratulated TPS on behalf of President Barack Obama. Representatives from the USDA, Department of Public Instruction, TCS, city council and county commissioners were among those in attendance.

The state may mandate a 20 require the system to pay employee retirement benefits matching at 20 percent of each individualâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s salary. State-mandated hospitalization benefits could increase by 9 percent, jumping from $4,500 per worker to $4,900. In terms of larger projects, the system requested a 21 percent increase in the capital budget, totaling $2.6 million and numbering $544,291 more than last year. Included in that budget are projects using Qualified School Construction Bonds federal stimulus money. Over the next 15 years, the system will reduce its category 1 part of the budget to $230,818 to pay back that money, Sink said. The capital budget is used to fund large projects, such as a new road at Southmont Elementary, genera-

When the state made its $11 million in cuts last year, the system was forced to cut 58 teachers and 47 teacher assistants. It also reduced other positions so that four vice principals served two schools and the entire system only had two school nurses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have 33 schools,â&#x20AC;? Sink said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a real drastic decrease for the number of schools we have.â&#x20AC;? The system expects to hear from the state in about a week for the final budget decision. And while cutting staffing positions remains an option, Mock said the system is looking at other options before taking that step. Other efforts the schools took last year to deal with reduced budget were increased class size. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure those are the things that if we get a dismal budgetary picture that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll look at and consider,â&#x20AC;? Mock said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll hear in the gossip mill all kinds of other options floating around, but, until we hear from the general assembly, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all we can say.â&#x20AC;?

BUDGET

tor upgrades at North Davidson middle and high schools and West Davidson High School, handrails in gyms, gym and are renovations at Denton Elementary, and a roof at East Davidson High School. Another reason for the increases in budget requests from the county commissioners stems from continued state funding cuts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If the state decreases, then you have to turn to your local government for funds,â&#x20AC;? Sink said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need teachers. We have students, we have to have teachers. So we have to have money to pay them.â&#x20AC;? And with the school system still reeling from last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s state budget cuts, the board begins bracing itself for more reductions in funding. Though the North Carolina is waiting to make any final budgeting decision until after all of the taxes have been processed, rumor has it that the state could cut another $8 million in the systemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget. The system has already sent back $4.2 million in discretionary cuts. Superintendent Fred Mock said the general assembly may further reduce the cuts by 3 percent, or

BY STEVE HANF HPE WALLBURG — Brian Connolly has endured a bit of an uphill climb this spring for the Ledford Panthers. After signing a National Letter of Intent on Thursday to play baseball for UNC Asheville, it’s clear that Connolly’s climbs — both literally on the hilly campus and figuratively for a rising program — have just begun. “They’re wanting to win,” Connolly said. “I know it’s going to take a lot of work, but I can’t wait. To play college baseball has been my lifelong dream.” The 6-foot-5, 225-pound right-hander looks imposing on the mound, and indeed he owns an impressive ratio of seven walks to 36 strikeouts to go with an earned run average of 2.02. Yet his record is just 3-4 as the defense has at times struggled behind him and the batting numbers — including Connolly’s

own stats — have dropped a bit this year. None of that bothers him on the mound, though. “He has had some tough losses where he’s only given up one or two earned runs,” Panthers coach Kemp Smith said. “We’ve talked about, when you’re a pitcher, when you let go of the ball, it’s out of your control. He doesn’t let it affect him, and that shows you what kind of mature, developed player he really is.” The development into a power pitcher came late. Connolly threw some innings for the varsity as a sophomore and junior, but considered himself more of a hitter. Last summer, Connolly pitched well for Alan Ashkinazy’s Greensboro Batting Center PrepStars team. He then attended a prospects camp at Asheville, where coaches recommended a few changes to his delivery. “I worked really hard in August and Sep-

Sports Editor Friday’s Central Carolina Conference matchup pitted two teams against each other that were hungry for a conference win. Somebody was going to get their first, and unfortunately for the Thomasville Bulldogs, they were not that team. Lexington marched into Finch Field and got its first victory in league play, posting a 7-4 score over the still winless Bulldogs. It was a frustrating day at the plate for THS, who managed only four hits for the afternoon. Errors are normally what doom the Bulldogs, but Friday it was their lack of offense. The frustration finally boiled over for coach Brian Kennedy at the end of the fourth inning, when he was tossed from the game for arguing about the strike zone. “Today, we just did not hit the ball,” said assistant coach Stan Baranowski, who filled in for Kennedy. “They have been hitting in the cage

Rashaun Anderson was issued a walk by LHS pitcher Noah Shephard, then went to second on a wild pitch and stole third. The bases became loaded with two outs, and Shephard was about to escape the jam. But Sam Everhart ended that

thought, hitting an infield chopper that he beat out to score the run. Thomasville manufactured two more runs in the fifth and sixth innings, with Troy Butler and Justin Hubbard each reaching home. Anderson had came on to relieve Korey Hilbourn in the fourth and kept the Lexington offense silent for three innings, but the Yellow Jackets broke the silence with a pair in the seventh. THS could only score one more the rest of the way in taking the defeat. “I told them to shake it off, it is done and over, and we have to get out here against Wheatmore Monday and jump on the ball,” Baranoski said. “This is a young group, and I believe we are going to win some games the next couple of weeks.” THS is 0-5 in the CCC, 2-11 overall. LHS moves to 1-4, 5-12.

Each January, the National Motorsports Press Association (NMPA) holds its annual convention and awards banquet in Charlotte. It’s a fun event, and it’s always nice to see the sometimes underappreciated motorsports media corps rewarded for its hard work. The portion of the program attendees either look forward to most or absolutely dread, depending on how photogenic they are, is a slide show of media members going about their business during the previous season, punctuated by pithy comments from a current NMPA executive board member. On one particularly memorable evening a few years back, the slide show included several totally random shots of Kasey Kahne, to which Mike Hembree, current NASCAR editor for SPEEDTV. com and that year’s purveyor of pith, would simply deadpan: “Kasey Kahne. He’s dreamy.” About the third time this happened, the audience joined in with the refrain, and I have to confess I haven’t seen a photo of Kahne since without “He’s dreamy,” providing the background

This summer I really learned how to pitch and figured that’s where my thing’s at.” Not long after, Connolly realized Asheville was the place to be. New coach Tom Smith, one of the top high school coaches in the nation for nearby T.C. Roberson,

impressed Connolly. He chose the Bulldogs over UNC Greensboro. “Changing staff, program on the rise — I really fell in love with it,” said Connolly, the son of Kevin and Robin Connolly. “And academics are a big deal in our family. Asheville really has a prestigious academic record and that was also a big factor in picking it.” Connolly said he’ll likely major in biology in the hopes of becoming a doctor: “Get an education first and the baseball is second,” he said.

Boat envy Envy is a terrible thing. It gnaws at the victim, creating a feeling of deprivation in spite of the victim’s comfort level otherwise. I am the victim of boat envy. The perfect boat is an elusive dream. There is no such thing as a boat that will handle your needs regardless of how much money you have. I’ve owned several boats in my life and ridden on probably hundreds but none will do everything you need. You have to pick a boat for what you plan to do. If you have more than one simple use of a boat (and most of us do) there’s going to be compromise. If you’re smart, you’ll prioritize your use and choose accordingly. My needs for a boat involve utility. I don’t care much for amenities like stereo systems and plush carpet. I once owned a boat with carpet and will never own another; mainly because I don’t enjoy spending a few hours cleaning up the boat; some of us do, and that’s OK. I am a big fan of Carolina Skiffs. I personally have owned three. I’ve talked everyone of my friends who’s bought a boat in the last ten years into buying a Carolina Skiff except one. The reason is utility. They’re tough and cheap for what they do. The finish isn’t as nice as most other boats but high quality finish on a work boat is superfluous. Who’s going to notice when the boat’s covered with mud from a duck marsh or fish blood and sand? My current boat is a 19 foot Semi Vee with a commercial C90 Yamaha motor. It’s a utility boat that has what I need to fish and hunt where I fish and hunt. Most of the time, it’s a little too big for what I need because a lighter boat tows easier. It also will get you wet under rough conditions especially in a cross wind. It’s roomy with lots of open floor space to walk around on and it’s stable enough to not rock when you do. I was pretty happy with my old Skiff… up until last week. Jeremy Yoemans, at High Point Auto Salvage, is my son in law. Like a good son in law, he consulted me when he decided to buy a new boat. His previous boat was an aluminum 17 foot flat bottom. He was the one member of my inner group who didn’t buy a Carolina Skiff and, after a couple of years in an aluminum boat, he saw the error of his ways. I didn’t gloat, I simply told him what I’d buy if I was getting a new boat today; and he bought

OFF THE PORCH

DICK JONES Outdoor Columnist a 17 foot DLX Carolina Skiff with a 65” beam. We fished in the new boat Wednesday (by the way, the stripers are in the river, we caught 25 in four hours) and now I want a new boat. I’ve been talking for a few years how my boat is a little big and costs me gas mileage on every trip. Heavy boats ride better but they cost more to tow and use more horsepower and fuel to get the same speeds and performance of lighter boats. Most of the time, I have more boat than I need. Also, compared to the new four strokes, my motor is loud and thirsty. I don’t run long distances normally so the thirsty part isn’t such a big deal but the loud part can be a problem. Everything my boat does, the 1765 does better. It’s quiet, the new DLX hull design rides better and is drier than my Semi Vee and the motor is so quiet, you can hardly tell it’s running. Since the boat is lighter, it’ll get on plane as fast and run faster than my 90 horsepower two stroke. Amazingly, there’s more useful storage in the smaller boat due to improved front and rear decks and console. As I said, I favor utility over fit and finish but the biggest difference is in the quality of the finish on the newer boat. Carolina Skiffs have always been a little rough compared to more refined boats like Southern Skimmers and Jones Brothers skiffs. I don’t know where I’ve been, but Carolina Skiff has come a long way in the finish department. The fittings and gauges are much nicer looking than my older boat. The decks and console is much better in design, execution, and finish. On the older boats, the top of the front deck was flat across the gunnels. This made the front deck have about a ten degree slope which could be a problem when the water was rough. The new front deck drops down inside at the bow and levels out the deck surface, making a big improvement in utility. The openings on the old boat were just that,

openings under the front and rear decks and console where stuff could be stored. It was neither secure nor dry. The new decks have sealed top hatches that keep gear dry and secure. The deck finish is much smoother and easier to clean. The surface is stippled but with a sealed finish. My old boat is simply rough with a somewhat porous surface. Fish blood or mud that stayed on the deck awhile could stain. This won’t happen with the new surface. Obviously, you can have any kind of quality you want, provided you spend enough money. Jeremy’s skiff cost about the same thing as my boat did ten years ago. True, my boat is a size larger, but his boat came with a four stroke motor, a trolling motor, and GPS/fish-finder, mine did not. When you factor in the locking hatches, improved deck design, and finish improvements, the boat is an incredible bargain. This boat will do everything my boat will do but better. Great… I was perfectly happy with my boat until this trip, at least we did catch fish.

Saturday, April 17, 2010 – Thomasville Times – B5

SPORTS KAHNE From page B1 music in my head. Silly, yes, but it now seems that others share this opinion with the NMPA. There’s a slight chance you missed this snippet of recent NASCAR news, because I have it on pretty good authority that some people actually do live in caves, hide under rocks and vacation on the moon. So for all two or three of you, here’s the deal. Hendrick Motorsports announced on April 14 that Richard Petty Motorsports driver Kasey “He’s Dreamy” Kahne would be taking over the No. 5 Chevy, currently piloted by Mark Martin, beginning with the 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season. The contract was described as being “long-term,” which after further investigation turns out to mean something like “five years and then we’ll see.” Drivers change teams all the time, for a lot of different reasons, but this is an unusual case. Speculation has run rampant since the announcement, as even the most mathematically challenged among us figured out fairly quickly, that something significant lies between the current NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season and the 2010 season; namely, that would be the year 2011. There are so many theories flying around that all we seem to be missing is a grassy knoll. What will KK do next year? Mark Martin and Dale Earnhardt, Jr. both have contracts extending to and through the end of 2011, and call me crazy, but I’m guessing that Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson’s deals with HMS extend into the afterlife. So why, fans are wondering, would Hendrick Motorsports sign a contract with such a talented and popular driver without having a car for him to drive? Just think of it like shoe shopping. Man, woman, child or horse, there are certain styles of footwear that fit us better than others. So naturally, whether it is Cole Haan or Converse, Ferragamo or a farrier’s iron, we naturally gravitate toward those same choices over and over again. They suit us. Hendrick Motorsports is like that. Their drivers are unique individuals with their own personalities and driving styles, but they have some similarities, too. They look, dress, speak and conduct themselves in an appropriate way. They are not only role models; they are NASCAR poster boys. They convey a positive image for the sport. Kasey Kahne — who is dreamy, in case you didn’t know — is a brand that fits well in this closet. He definitely looks the part; still young with a long racing future ahead of him, his good looks have been the subject of many an amusing TV commercial. Anyone who has watched the annual NASCAR Sprint Cup Awards Banquet has probably noticed he isn’t all that comfortable with formal speechmaking, but he’s a

generally cordial person with a calm manner of speaking and a low-key personality not much given to controversy. And lest we forget, he’s a good driver. He was the Cup Series’ Raybestos Rookie of the Year in 2005, and made the Chase for the Sprint Cup field in 2006 — when he won six races — and in 2009. No one can say with any degree of certainly at this point exactly what car Kahne will

be driving in 2011, but why get so worked up about it? There are plenty of options, with Stewart-Haas Racing being the most commonly mentioned for now. What we do know is that Rick Hendrick has said he will be competing in the Cup Series full time in 2011. And we know the car will be a fast, competitive one. How can we be so sure? That’s easy; the legendary Rick Hendrick agrees that

Unilin contributes to CIS TIMES STAFF REPORT

The Community Involvement Team at Unilin Flooring organized a Drive during the month of March to collect clothing & personal hygiene items. The items were collected and given to Communities In Schools of Lexington/Davidson County to distribute to students in need throughout Davidson County. “I am so pleased and proud of the fabulous people I get to work with,” said Stephanie Watson, Master Data Specialist at Unilin Flooring. “The Unilin employees really appreciate the opportunity to serve and give back to the community in such a tangible way. We are all very involved in giving to the United Way campaign, but being able to collect clothing and personal hygiene items is a very different way of giving.” “We appreciate the gen-

Change now with true urgency TaylorMade

MARILYN TAYLOR Business Columnist To change NOW requires quick, focused action. But not just any action. Change expert John Kotter asserts that real urgency — what he calls true urgency — is not just “a race to deal with the trivial.” Rather, the emphasis is on being alert to potential opportunities or dangers that affect the very lifeblood of the business. With a true sense of urgency, people know that “great opportunities and hazards are everywhere.” And they have a powerful desire to move and win, now. To increase true urgency, Kotter offers one strategy and four tactics. The single strategy may surprise you — particularly in light of his imposing credentials: • Professor of Leadership, Emeritus at Harvard Business School • Widely regarded as the world’s foremost authority on leadership and change • Author of the bestsellers Leading Change, Our Iceberg is Melting and many others. Kotter’s strategy? Aim for the heart. Of course the mind assembles the needed information and analyzes risk. Naturally, a logical argument earns points. But a full scale buy-in requires more. When was the last time you remember being urgently moved to action after being presented with multiple facts, figures, charts and tables in a well-prepared business case? Were you inspired to actually create change or merely convinced of the need for it? Kotter’s words provide insight into his startling strategy: “Underlying the urgent behavior that makes organizations succeed in a turbulent world is not

only a set of thoughts. It’s not only ‘There is a great opportunity or hazard and therefore logically we must deal with it.’ Underlying a true sense of urgency is a set of feelings: a compulsive determination to move, and win, now. When it comes to affecting behavior – creating alert, fast-moving actions that are focused on an important issue, relentlessly launching needed initiatives or cooperating with the initiatives of others, pushing to achieve more ambitious goals despite the obstacles, trying to achieve progress each and every day, constantly purging low value activities so that more time is available to do all this — feelings are more influential than thoughts.” His conclusion, based on research and practice, illustrates the importance of human experience. Inspiration comes from many places: A personal story. A lesson from history. A sensory experience as you view the damage. Far from cultivating mindless emotional reactions — seeing, hearing, feeling and

experiencing the basis for change allows people to step into the place where change happens. The final decision within each individual to move, make it happen and win now is born of deep feeling. Far from manipulation, authentic leading with the heart allows people to become part of the need for change and partners in the push for it. Four heart-head tactics to increase urgency next week.

and their families with resources to meet needs, and on coordinating practical ministries. The Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Homes directs NCBAMâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s statewide ministry and the Convention provides 100% of the funding for services and staffing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am thrilled that our convention has seen the need for us to provide a ministry that moves beyond residential care for aging adults in our state,â&#x20AC;? Hollifield said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Aging men and women prefer to live in their homes as long as they possibly can, and we are providing resources to assist in making that happen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Also, partnering with Baptist Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Homes for NCBAM allows us to provide an important spiritual dimension.â&#x20AC;? The building for NCBAM underwent significant renovations to turn it into an office headquarters. In addition to administrative offices for staff, the headquarters includes a call center, a library housing Baptist Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Homes historical publication Charity & Children, and an extensive conference/meeting center. Immediately following the dedication ceremony, Hollifield and other Convention staff members utilized the conference center for an executive committee meeting.
