Spring Daze slated for Saturday in Thomasville BY ERIN WILTGEN Staff Writer
From exotic jewelry to flags to tomato plants, the Spring Daze festival in Thomasville has it all. More than 80 vendors will pack the Chair City’s main street on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., making the event the biggest ever. “We’ve run out of spaces,” said Carol Brown, director of the Beautification Committee. “We’ve gone out and re-measured and even squeezed in some places to make room for everyone.” When Spring Daze began in 2004, the product tents clustered around the depot. “Now it goes all the way to the big chair,” Brown said. “It’s really grown.” Besides food vendors, businesses and individuals selling their wares, and organizations offering information, the event also features live music at the bandstands on Main Street. And with a beautiful weather forecast, Brown said she expects a large turnout. “It’s just a good atmosphere about it, it’s not hustle and bustle,” she said. “It’s not all commercialized. It’s not like a regular street festival.” Vendors offer a variety of goods. Though many

BOE sets Hege hearing date Board members to meet after May 4 primary BY ELIOT DUKE Staff Writer LEXINGTON — Davidson County Board of Elections voted to proceed with an evidentiary hearing on May 7 to determine whether Gerald Hege is qualified to run for re-election as sheriff. The hearing will decide if the merits of 13 signed affidavits from protesters to disqualify Hege from the Republican primary based on the fact that he is a convicted felon and can not be in the custody, care or control of firearms are legitimate. “In the end, it’s not what we think is true, it’s what we are able to show at this time,” Jon Myers, BOE board member, said during Monday morning’s hearing at the Davidson County governmental building. “In the light of that, while not a determination on the merits and not a definitive answer on anything contained in the affidavits, in order to gain more information so that we can allow the parties to come forward and present their own information, at this time I would make a motion that, based on the verified affidavits, the information contained in those affidavits and the information available to us, that the board find probable cause exists to conduct a full evidentiary hearing to allow both parties to come forward and present the evidence that we need to know to make a final decision.” Myers said that according to

Yard sale to beneﬁt ‘Relay’ Ghost hunters make visit to TPD BY ELIOT DUKE
BY ERIN WILTGEN Staff Writer
The cycle of life and death is nothing new to Scott Kramer. As the director of Thomasville Funeral Home, Kramer has dealt with that delicate balance many times. But on Saturday, Kramer will help commemorate those who have fought against that balance through cancer. Thomasville Funeral Home, located at 18 Randolph St., will hold a yard sale celebration — complete with bingo, raffles and live music — from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Proceeds will benefit Davidson County Relay For Life. “We’re just trying to raise some money to get some research going to stop all this suffering,”
A team of ghost hunters spent the night at Thomasville Police Department earlier this month in search of an apparition some officers think has been roaming the halls for more than 50 years. The Winston-Salem Paranormal Society visited TPD on April 10 and stayed from 9 p.m. to 4

Guilford St. While the team couldn’t guarantee a spirit does exist, some unexplained events that night are at least bringing them back for another visit. “I can’t say for 100
percent certainty that this is a ghost,” Sarah Sherman, lead investigator and cofounder of WSPS, said. “There was too much noise going on outside for most of the night. I, however, found these things to be odd and out of the normal from everything else on the recordings.” Maj. James Mills received a sample record-

Chainsaw competition in Chair City BY ERIN WILTGEN Staff Writer The first Thomasville Tourism Chainsaw Sculpting Competition will be held Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon at the Thomasville clock tower parking lot on Main Street. An auction will be held at 3 p.m. on Saturday in conjunction with Spring Daze.
Currently 11 carvers have committed to the competition â€” three from North Carolina. Thomasville Tourism has secured 15 corporate sponsors for the event. One of them â€” Big Game Safari Restaurant â€” will offer carvers a discount meal on Saturday night so that the general public can join and talk with the group. Tourism Director Mark Scott says he antic-
ipates a crowd of 5-10,000 people. â€œBeing a first-year event, I was hoping that if we broke even and put out a good product we could do it again next year,â€? Scott said. â€œThe exposure and the level of interest is far exceeding what I had anticipated. I think itâ€™s due to the uniqueness of it.â€? Scott said that some of the already built-up enthusiasm for the event

I just think the good Lord was looking out for him. It was a pretty bad fall and a scary, scary situation. This was a very tragic accident. Anything like this just scares you to death. You never want anything happening to a student. Seeing him lying there was almost overwhelming. We were told he should come through this OK.â€? Tobin said THS and EDHS share a masonry and shop class. Shuler was transported to the hospital via helicopter.
a great time to buy something for your mother.â€? The festival also works to promote community, not only in getting folks out and about downtown but also supporting local businesses. All of the vendors come from within driving distance of Thomasville, Brown said. â€œIn a way youâ€™re helping the community and local people,â€? she said. â€œThese arenâ€™t people that travel from state to state to set up.

Sherman told Mills in an e-mail that there was enough for her team to return at a later time when there is less background noise coming from downtown. â€œI think I here some stuff,â€? said Mills of the recordings. â€œThey recorded over in the west end, upstairs part of the building, where we have our old jail cells. They said they found some paranormal activity, and interested them enough that they want to come back for a second night. They mentioned hearing a loud bang and quiet whispers. I was impressed with their findings. We left them alone for the most part and let them do their study. It is a bit spooky back there.â€? In addition to the recording, Sherman said her team had several experiences during the night, including seeing a figure walk out of a wall and then disappear. There were a few instances of team members hearing unexplained knocks and

Thatâ€™s one of the reasons I wanted to top carvers in the area. People like seeing a quality product.â€? The event is free and open to the public. Free ear plugs will be provided.
feeling as if something had touched them. Sherman said electromagnetic field (EMF) detectors went off a few times, but they could not track it to any explainable source. The team also caught several more recordings on EVPs that could not be debunked as coming from outside noise or members of the WSPS. â€œWe feel that there is enough evidence of the possibility of paranormal activity that we plan to do a second investigation in the hopes to capture more evidence,â€? Sherman said. â€œSeveral of us felt like something had touched us.â€? Mills said Sherman shared her findings with a psychic, who agreed that there may be something to the alleged ghost. Mills said that since the initial article about TPDâ€™s uninvited inmate appeared in the Thomasville Times last Halloween that he has received phone calls from as far away as Japan from people wanting to know more about the phenomenon. TPD, built in 1938, was once home to many city government offices, including the county jail. Mills said the name of the alleged ghost is still not known. Staff Writer Eliot Duke can be reached at 888-3578, or email@example.com.

document from the department of probation. Hege will need to provide that documentation to the board by May 5, as both parties were asked to submit their case to the BOE before the Friday hearing. â€œYour last day of probation, you receive a document from probation and parole that reinstates your citizenship,â€? Hege said. â€œThatâ€™s the last paper you get from them. Itâ€™s on file and itâ€™ll just be a matter of getting them a copy of it. It always goes back to the constituion. All five of the requirements were met, other than a document, and thatâ€™s just a matter of faxing it. â€œThe board is going to give the petitioners all the benefit of the doubt. Iâ€™m really all for it because I donâ€™t want any doubts either. I donâ€™t have any problems. Itâ€™s not a surprise, we expected it.â€? Hege maintains his stance that he meets all of the requirements to run for sheriff and the fact that he cannot possess a firearm should not play a part in his bid for re-election. Melisia Prout, CEO of Salvationâ€™s Way, a non-profit organization that offers legal counsel to low income families, was happy with the boardâ€™s decision and plans to continue the protest on the grounds Hege is not qualified to return as sheriff.

From page 1
â€œThis is what I was hoping would happen,â€? said Prout. â€œOur next step is preparing for the hearing. Weâ€™re sticking to the statutory qualifications. [Hege] can not be in control, care or custody of a firearm.â€? Prout added that should Hege be defeated in next Tuesdayâ€™s Republican primary she would drop the issue. A Hege victory in the primary, however, would not keep him from being disqualified should the BOE find sufficient evidence that he is not qualified to be a candidate. Once a decision is made, either party can appeal to the state board of elections, who will then evaluate the case. Once a ruling is handed down from Raleigh, either party can appeal again to the state appellate courts. According to Myers, a state statute says that a protest can not delay the canvass, a process by which the board verifies all the votes before naming a winner. â€œAt the meeting we will try to determine whether [Hege], for either constitutional or statutory reasons, was not qualified to become a candidate,â€? said Myers. â€œIf thatâ€™s the case, he will be disqualified as a candidate. We will not have a re-vote or another election. We would have to look at the remaining candidates and the number of votes they have.â€? A run-off election in June between the top two Republican candidates in terms of vote totals from the primary also is possible.

United States must make effort to control prescription drug use LIFELONG HEALTH
DR. DAVID LIPSCHITZ Health Columnist In 2009, prescription drug use exceeded $300 billion, a 5.1 percent increase from the previous year. As baby boomers grow older, increasing demand for prescription drugs will fuel even greater spending on our already mammoth health care system. Couple the aging population with the recent legislation to insure an additional 30 million Americans, and the need for drugs will skyrocket. In the coming years, physicians must do everything to reduce medication use while still assuring that patients receive the best possible treatment. Reducing the use of prescription medications will require a multipronged attack. Clearly, the pharmaceutical industry has a major responsibility in holding down costs. Americans pay much more for medications than nearly every other developed country in the world. This differential in costs is an unfair and unwar-
ranted burden on Americans, particularly as the global economy becomes large enough to support the cost of research and development. Even when insurance covers a large portion of the expense, it causes an increase in total health care costs that ultimately is paid for through higher premiums and copays. Our legislators can play an important role in resolving this disparity. As with most challenges in U.S. health care, the greatest burden to hold down costs rests on the shoulders of physicians. Drugs that are of little or no value should not be prescribed. This applies to expensive, cutting-edge medications as well as the more common drugs used to treat viruses, infections and chronic conditions. Overuse of antibiotics, sedatives, tranquilizers, antidepressants and many other drugs has great consequences for the health system. Physicians have a responsibility to monitor the use of medications that have serious adverse effects. For example, antipsychotic agents â€” initially developed to treat mental diseases such as schizophrenia â€” now account for the greatest percentage of drug expenditures. In recent years, there has been a marked increase in the prescription of medications to treat behavioral disorders in older people, primar-
ily in nursing home patients. Much research has shown that these drugs are frequently used as a â€œchemical restraint,â€? turning a wandering, agitated patient into a drowsy, listless person who remains largely bed-bound. Furthermore, all these medications, such as Seroquel, Risperdal and Haldol, have a â€œblack boxâ€? that warns physicians and patients that these drugs cause increased incidence of stroke and death when used in older patients. While there are some circumstances where these drugs must be used, they should always remain a last resort. Patients can also play a role in curbing medication costs. Increased direct-to-consumer marketing has dramatically influenced patient preference for brand-name medications. Compelling television commercials persuade patients to seek out a certain medication. This, combined with suspicions that generic prescriptions are less effective, has contributed to rising medication costs. Though generic drugs account for 75 percent of all prescribed medications, they only account for 25 percent of the cost because patented medications are so expensive. Whenever your physician prescribes a medication, consider cost. Ask if a generic version is available and appropriate. The price difference
between brand-name and generic medications is not universal. For example, the brand-name medication Avodart is only slightly more expensive than the generic Finasteride, initially marketed as Proscar. These two drugs are used to shrink the prostate in men who have difficulty urinating due to an enlarged prostate. Thanks to an aggressive marketing campaign to physicians and the general public, the brand-name prescription is used almost exclusively. Whether your prescription is generic or not, tell your physician that curbing costs is important. Empowered patients must always understand the value and side effects of any prescribed medications. Keep an up-todate list of medications and take it to every medical appointment. Ask your primary care physician to go over the drugs taken to assure that all are essential. Like every other aspect of health care, we must all pitch in to help control costs.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR To the Editor The selection of our County Commissioners is an important part of the May 4th Primary. We urge you to support Owen Moore for a seat on that Board. Owen knows Davidson County as his family has resided in Northeast Davidson for many generations. He is against raising our property taxes and current annexation policies. Owen understands the difference between economic development and uncontrolled growth that destroys our environment and creates an unfair burden on our schools. He is a very respected member of his church and community and will give Northeast Davidson the representation that is sorely needed. Owen is a friend to all residents of Davidson County and this is truly an opportunity to elect a voice that will help protect us all. We ask you, on May 4, to cast your vote for Owen Moore. Jim and Susan Hobson High Point
Dear Editor: I am writing in support of Jerry Dockham’s candidacy in the upcoming State House primary on May 4th. Even though I reside outside of Jerry’s 80th District (Martinsville, Virginia), I would like to provide some insight from someone who has known Jerry since we were suite-mates at Wake Forest in the early 1970’s. My grandfather was in the North Carolina Senate for many terms, my aunt was Senator Sam Ervin’s top administrative assistant his entire tenure of office, my uncle was in the U. S. Senate for 40 years, and I had the honor of serving as a page in both the North Carolina Senate and U. S. Senate. So, I believe I have a reasonable understanding of what it takes to be a good legislator and good representative of a constituency. Jerry is a dependable, honorable, hard-working person. He has a wonderful family and has taken tremendous pride in representing his District, in Raleigh, for the past 20 years. During those 20 years, Jerry has gained a great deal of experience and respect, and has proven he can work effectively on both sides of the aisle. Jerry is not your typical politician. He has continued run his Nationwide Insurance Agency in Denton since being elected to the House. He is an independent thinker and takes every vote very seriously. He is humble and loves representing his District. He has sponsored and co-sponsored a tremendous amount of legislation, over the years, all geared toward the support
of the people he represents. I believe the 80th District is very fortunate to have such a dedicated, hard-working, fair-minded person representing them. Even though I am not able to vote in the primary, I hope each of you will respect and appreciate the job Jerry has done over these many years, and allow him the opportunity to continue to effectively and proudly represent you in Raleigh.

Enemies to friends: How long does it take? VIEWPOINT
Dear Editor: The Humane Society of Davidson County would like to thank publicly the Hot Flash Players Performing Arts Company for donating a portion of the proceeds from their newest play, “The Hallelujah Girls,” to our organization. Performances will be held at Tricia’s Catering in Lexington this Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, and there will also be a Sunday matinee. This event is a wonderful way to enjoy a delightful play and a delicious dinner and to help animals at the same time. We encourage everyone to call (336) 236-8007 or go by Tricia’s Catering and make reservations. Tickets are only $25 in advance. Will the portion donated to us truly help animals? Absolutely. Last year, the Humane Society, a totally volunteer organization, spent more than $79,000 in our program services for animals, which is more than 90 percent of all funds disbursed. We assisted in, or paid the full amount, for 434 animals through our Spay-Neuter program. We also helped 468 animals through our SickInjured program. Some of these animals had owners who were unable to afford veterinary care; others were strays that kind-hearted people were willing to keep or find homes for if we could help with veterinary expenses. Through our Foster Care program, we helped an additional 146 animals. That is a total of 1,048 animals we could help because of the kindness, compassion and generosity of people in our area. Our local cities and county have been hit hard by the downturn in the economy in recent years, and the animals have suffered, too. We cannot help them without public support. We sincerely appreciate the Hot Flash Players for remembering the animals as they give of their time and talent to our communities. Becky Everhart Treasurer Humane Society of Davidson County
D.G. MARTIN N.C. Columnist It is hard to put aside the bad feelings we have for wartime adversaries. It is hardest for families who lost loved ones or soldiers who saw their comrades suffer and fall in battle. Making friends with the former enemy may never be possible for them. We learned that lesson again recently when Fayetteville Mayor Tony Chavonne recently proposed a sister city relationship with Soc Trang, a small city in southern Vietnam. He wrote, “Thankfully, we have seen positive change in the four decades since the end of the Vietnam War.... We have a wonderful opportunity to tell the country and the world that our diverse community, reflective in many ways of America’s military conflicts over the decades, has moved past the divisiveness and pain of the past and today celebrates being a military town and honors those who served.” But not everybody agreed. Some Vietnam Vets said they were not ready for a Vietnamese sister city. “It just dredges up a lot of bad feelings,” one local Vet observed. Another, responding to the mayor’s effort to heal
any remaining wartime wounds said simply, “Sir, I don’t need to be healed.” Even harder to heal are the open wounds from the American Civil War. It has been more than 145 years since Sherman’s troops marched through Fayetteville on the way to Bentonville, the surrender at Bennett Place --- and the occupation of Chapel Hill. In Chapel Hill, people still talk about the time when the Union troops took over the town in April and early May of 1865. Mostly, they talk about how one young Chapel Hill woman “too quickly” made friends with the enemy general in charge of the occupying forces. Maybe you remember the story. Ella Swain, daughter of University of North Carolina President and former Governor David Swain, met Union General Smith Atkins when he made an official visit to the President’s home. It must have been love at first sight. A few months later they were married, over the protest of students, who rang the campus bells for hours to disrupt the wedding ceremony, and in the face of many townspeople, who ignored their invitations to attend. How could a Southern woman so quickly put aside her negative feelings about the soldiers who had destroyed and conquered her region? And, whatever happened to the couple whose marriage got such an unusual start? Those questions have been answered thanks to a new book by the couple’s greatgreat granddaughter, Suzy Barile. She is the author of “Undaunted Heart: The
True Story of a Southern Belle & a Yankee General.” Taking advantage of family records, the writings of contemporary observers like Cornelia Phillips Spencer, and Barlie’s own energetic research, she takes her readers back to 1865 when two seemingly mismatched people fell immediately and deeply in love. Within days after their first meeting, the Yankee general writes love poetry to the Southern belle. She refuses to accept a copy until he modifies it to confess his love for her. Barlie’s book is non-fiction, but her report on the couple’s courtship reads like a romance novel. Less intense, but even more satisfying, is her description of how the couple set up housekeeping in Atkins’s hometown of Freeport, Illinois, and built a happy marriage, despite the loss of children and other disappointments. The family maintained Ella Swain Atkins’s North Carolina connections, dividing her time between Illinois and her native state until her untimely death at 38 years of age, in 1881, while she was in North Carolina. Perhaps Smith and Ella Swain Atkins rushed their peacemaking at the end of the Civil War. But, I think they taught us a good lesson. Better to make peace too early than to wait too long. D.G.

Kramer said he told her that they could come up with something better than that. “It’s easy to throw 10 bucks at somebody or throw 20 bucks at somebody,” Kramer said. “But it’s much better to actually raise money.” And though slightly thrown off that a funeral home would want to throw a party, Joyce said that in retrospect it makes sense. “Many celebrations of life happen there,” she said. “And Scott and Elena are such great supporters of our community.” Since then, Kramer and the Relay volunteers have worked closely together. “Every one of them has a story, and I just fell in love with them,” Kramer said. “The event has been growing and growing every year.” Almost all of the American Cancer Society Relay committee members are cancer survivors, Joyce said.

This is going to be a very good year for them.” Volunteers from the American Cancer Society and representatives of Relay For Life will collect $20 per table at the event. Bingo winners will get prizes donated by the community, and yard sale items include jewelry, trinkets and clothes also given from various groups and individuals. “I’m shocked at the amount of clothing and things that people have just been bringing to the funeral home,” Kramer said. “Some of it even has tags on it. It’s not junk, it’s not second-hand stuff.” The volunteers also sill sell breakfast food and raffle tickets. Sophisticated Blues will play from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Community members can come hang out and listen at tables set up at the funeral home — an entire table costs $20.

came up with a drug that gave her the first clean scans she’d had in 17 years. Joyce herself battled a non-aggresive form of cancer called carcinoid and was told she wouldn’t live to retirement age. “We have lots of wonderful stories,” said the 63-year-old Joyce. “Hopefully we have prolonged the quality of life for lots of people.” Kramer said that hearing the volunteers’ stories over the years has been a humbling yet enjoyable experience. “I’m so happy that I have these people in my life,” he said. “These are friends too, besides. If you really hear their stories and hear what they went through and you can look in someone’s eyes and see them smile. I never complain about having a bad back or having a headache because I know people who’ve been through the absolute mill and they’re great.” And though Kramer said he was always passionate about helping those in the community, after getting to know the women better, he has become even more inspired. “To hear the struggle that they went through and hear about all of the things that they did — I wish to God that we could raise more money,” he said. “It

truly is suffering, the chemo and the operation. It’s pretty awe-inspiring that a person can go through that even not knowing they’re going to survive and go through it and come out at the other side and talk about it.” The American Cancer Society has already contributed to many breakthroughs in cancer research over the years, Joyce said, including the implementation of the mammogram. But the long search is not over yet. “There’s such a great need for more research to find cures,” Joyce said. “We already have cures for some, but we also need to find better kinds of chemo therapy so people don’t suffer so much.” Joyce said she didn’t know about Relay For Life until after her struggle with cancer. But since she got involved 12 years ago, she has discovered not only the extent of people’s generosity but the beauty of community support. “You realize how common cancer is, how many people it affects,” she said. “For everybody once they become involved, people become almost addicted to it. You meet some of the best friends you’ve had in your life through Relay.” Staff Writer Erin Wiltgen can be reached at 888-3576.

Kevin Harvick makes last second pass to win Aaron’s 499. See Story Below
East baseball vying for title BY ZACH KEPLEY Sports Editor
CALENDAR TODAY BASEBALL Thomasville @ W. Davidson 4:30 p.m.
It has been nearly a decade since East Davidson won the Central Carolina Conference championship, but three more wins can end that drought. Currently tied atop the CCC with Central Davidson at 6-1, the Golden Eagles have a grueling three-game stretch
against the league’s best teams. They play at Central Davidson today, then entertain West Davidson Friday before concluding the regular season at second-place Salisbury (5-2) next Tuesday. “We have three big games in a row, and at this point if we lose any of the three, we may lose our shot at a conference championship,” said
BASEBALL E. Davidson @ C. Davidson 7 p.m.
EDHS coach Dan Tricarico. A win Tuesday would put East in control of its own destiny. East could be perfect had it not been for a 5-3 loss to the Spartans in eight innings back on April 1. “You can’t make mistakes against them,” Tricarico said. “We have to be at our best and pitching-wise we have to get
ahead.” East will not be able to breathe easy if they make it past CDHS. The Green Dragons, though 2-4 in the league, have played the top-tier teams well, and nearly won a slugfest against the Eagles in a 10-7 loss. They are a team that could make a serious run in the tournament. “West is young, but they play hard,” said Tricarico.
“If we go into that game not ready to play, they can come up and beat us.” A win against them would give East at least a share of the conference crown, but the top spot for the playoffs is what they want most. “Getting the conference championship and the No. 1 seed is the ultimate goal each year,” said Tricarico.

Jamie McMurray (No. 1) tries to keep Kevin Harvick behind him on the final lap, but Harvick would soon pull to the inside and make the pass just before the two reach the finish line on Sunday.
Slick move gets Harvick the win TIMES STAFF REPORT TALLADEGA, ALA. — It’s a matter of inches at Talladega Superspeedway. Every lap. NASCAR’s superstars run inches apart, lap after lap. It was only fitting that Sunday’s race, called the Aaron’s 499, was decided by inches. Mere inches at 195 miles per hour. Kevin Harvick timed his breath-taking move perfectly, slipping under reigning Daytona 500 champion and race leader Jamie McMurray at the beginning of the tri-oval (on the third and final attempt at a greenwhite-checker finish, no less) to win what was perhaps the most exciting race in the history of NASCAR’s most competitive track. The amazing thing was the closeness of the finish, .011 of of a second, less than the bat of an eyelash on a record-breaking day before a crowd of more than 100,000 screaming fans at the
2.66-mile track. Not only that – it was the eighth closest finish since the 1993 advent of electronic timing and scoring, plus the second closest finish at Talladega. It was pins and needles all the way with a new record for race leaders, 29 drivers led at least one lap. The old record was 28 set in October of 2008. There was also a new record for lead changes, 88. The old mark was 75 set in May of 1984. Trailing Harvick and McMurray were McMurray’s teammate Juan Pablo Montoya, Denny Hamlin, Mark Martin, David Ragan, Clint Bowyer, Kurt Busch, Kyle Busch, Mike Bliss and Carl Edwards. It wound up being a rough day for three of the race’s leaders, Jeff Burton, Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson. All three were involved in wrecks that took them out of contention. Horrible weather on Saturday forced cancellation
Harvick is ecstatic in Victory Lane after pulling off the dramatic pass to win the Aaron’s 499. of qualifying for the race and points leader Jimmie Johnson started from the pole position as a result of the entire starting lineup being determined by point standings. Kyle Busch went from sixth to first on the opening lap. Then Hamlin pushed Logano out front. By Lap 5, Kenseth led with Harvick second, then Harvick took the
front spot. It was the kind of heartstopping action fans have come to expect at Talladega. Hamlin shoved Earnhardt to the top spot on Lap 7 and then led himself. By Lap 10, fans were still on their feet wondering who was gonna pass who. Drivers were swap-

Opening Night at Bowman Gray Stadium rained out TIMES STAFF REPORT The opening night event for Bowman Gray Stadium’s historic 62nd season has unfortunately been postponed due to rain. Despite the threatening clouds in the
sky, a sizeable crowd still showed up hoping that the weather would hold out. But in the end, the rain showers didn’t stay away. Next Saturday will be the rescheduled opening night presented by Winston-Salem State University
Motorsports Management and featuring the Tucson 200. The night will feature the infamous Tucson 200 in addition to a 40-lap Sportsman race, a 20-lap Street Stock race, and two 15-lap Stadium Stock races.
In keeping with the global climate changes we’ve been experiencing of late, Silly Season has come early this year. For as long as I’ve been a fan of NASCAR, I have believed the term “Silly Season” was actually coined by our sport. The name has typically been used to describe roughly the second half of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season, when teams and sponsors and even auto manufacturers begin the process of realigning themselves for the following year. In years past, it was the time when Hendrick Motorsports would announce the addition of Dale Earnhardt, Jr. to its driver lineup, for example, or Tony Stewart would officially reveal the creation of Stewart-Haas Racing. Falling into the trap of thinking the world revolves around one’s own particular interests can prove you wrong in a hurry. Silly Season, as it turns out, is a phrase that has been in use since the 1800s. It is a media-based term that refers to the period of time starting in mid to late summer when “frivolous” news stories start popping up. In the media business, summer is the slowest time of year for hard news. School is out, the legislature is not in session and, in our hemisphere at least, everyone is on vacation. You really have to scramble around to find things to write about, which is great for folks like the guy up the street who grew a giant squash, because suddenly, he’s front-page news.

SPORTS AREA SPORTS BRIEFS SOFTBALL East cages Bulldogs East Davidson secured an easy 12-0 win in five innings Friday over visiting Thomasville. Spencer Embler got the win tossing three innings and striking out eight. Paige Byrd had three hits and three RBIs, Morgan Gallimore two hits and Miranda Mullins two hits. East is 11-5, 6-1 in the CCC.
HARVICK From page 7 ping the lead like trading cards and the race was barely underway. David Ragan led for several laps before Kurt Busch took over with cars lined up four abreast behind him. Drivers shuffled spots like a deck of cards and Logano was back in front at Lap 15. Labonte had moved into the top 10 by Lap 17. Burton led a lap and was shoved from behind by Earnhardt. Robbie Gordon led briefly before Vickers took the top spot. NASCAR tossed a precautionary caution on Lap 20 so teams could check tire wear (Saturday’s heavy rains washed away the rubber from the track). When racing resumed after the pit stop, it was Kurt Busch and Logano who streaked to the front on Lap 25 with dipping and dicing in their rearview mirrors. Vickers took over on Lap 28 with Kyle Busch shoving him. On Lap 30, the crowd went wild when Earnhardt took the lead. Michael Waltrip passed him and led several laps. AJ Allmendinger and Kyle Busch teamed up on the bottom trying to get the lead. Earnhardt decided that wasn’t gonna happen and took the top spot himself. Johnson led Lap 38. Ragan led another lap, then Earnhardt again. Burton took over on Lap 42 with Kyle Busch wearing out his rear bumper. Kyle took over the lead and Burton dropped all the way back to 16th.
Junior Eagles prevail East Davidson’s junior varsity beat Central Davidson 6-3 on Friday in Southmont. Alyssa Harvell had three hits and two runs scored, Rianna Craven had two hits and Terri Vance also had two hits with three RBIs. Haley Ray got the win in the circle. East is 6-6.
Earnhardt took over again on Lap 45 and Kurt Buch was second. Then, Kurt led with Kyle behind him. Keselowski took over with Kyle in tow. At 50 laps, the top 10 included Keselowski, Ragan, Kyle Busch, Earnhardt, Waltrip, Regan Smith, Burton, Mike Bliss, Logano and Menard, and this was subject to change at the blink of an eye. Drivers continued to change spots lap after lap. Sam Hornish led briefly before Kyle Busch went back to the front. Vickers led again with Waltrip next. Johnson went out front again with Earnhardt behind him. Green-flag pit stops started at Lap 64. When stops were complete, Johnson led briefly before Gordon and Vickers went to the front. Positions were changing so fast, it was hard to keep up from one lap to the next. Long before the halfway point of the race, there had been 20 differ-

ent leaders. Hamlin brought out the day’s second caution on Lap 78 when he spun out of Turn 4. The race was restarted on Lap 80 with the Busch brothers out front. Gordon quickly went to second and then the front. It was more of the same switching, swapping and flip-flopping before the day’s third caution fell on Lap 82 when Johnny Sauter spun in the tri-oval, triggering a multi-car accident that also collected Michael Waltrip, Matt Kenseth, Max Pappis, Kurt Busch, Paul Menard and Elliott Sadler. Racing resumed at Lap 88 with Gordon pushing Reutimann to the front. Johnson and Earnhardt were behind, as was Smith and Stewart but things changed very quickly. At the halfway point, Lap 94, it was Kahne, Biffle, Kyle Busch, Johnson, Ragan, Allmendinger, Speed, Burton, Reutimann, Vickers, Hamlin, who had battled back to 11th, and Earnhardt.

SPORTS SILLY From page 7 Over the years, maybe NASCAR has been a little bit like that. SpeedWeeks and the jockeying-for-position frenzy of the early months of the season consume everyone, but then things kind of shake out, settle down, and we start looking around to see what else is going on, both now and in the months to come. The Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup has expedited this process somewhat. The 10-race format has created kind of a “season within a season,” and although they can still win races, effectively the year is over for all but 12 Sprint Cup Series drivers. Since they have no hope of winning a championship in the current season, they become even more eager to find a way to come back and win one next year. Let the games begin. This year, however, we had barely recovered from the Daytona 500 before the fur started flying. Kasey Kahne fired the first significant shot across the bow, with the announcement that he had signed a contract with Hendrick Motorsports and would be leaving Richard Petty Motorsports at the end of the 2010 season. While still digesting that piece of news, NASCAR Nation learned of some upcoming changes at Penske Racing. Shell/ Pennzoil will leave its longtime partnership with Richard Childress Racing at the end of 2010 and move to Penske, sponsoring the new No. 22 Dodge to be driven by Kurt Busch next year. Brad Keselowski will fill the seat of the No. 2 Miller Lite car. “The key words are solidifying our future and giving some validity to our program. Obviously when you have rotating sponsors every week, there’s some confusion that goes with that, not just with the fans but also with the team itself,” Keselowski said on the day of the announcement. “So to be able to look the guys in the eye and tell them that’s what we are going to do next year and see their faces and see how excited they were about it, to know that there’s ... a solid future ahead, for not just me but for everyone on my team, that’s so very important.” Over at RCR, the future of Kevin Harvick, current driver of the No. 29 Shell/Pennzoil Chevy, is not quite so settled in. Harvick is left with a contract that expires at the end of this season and an abdicating sponsor. The changes leave a couple of major sponsors hanging, namely Budweiser, the current sponsor of Kahne’s No. 9 Ford, and Mobil 1, sponsor of Penske Racing’s third car, the No. 77. That car is currently driven by Sam Hornish, Jr., whose contract is — you guessed it — up for renewal at the end of this year. Confused yet? Just wait. The summer still lies before us, and with all these big names bouncing around, we
still may not know the identity of the guy who will ultimately be responsible for NASCAR’s biggest squash of the season. Obviously, with millions of dollars and some of NASCAR’s premier talent, teams and sponsors at stake, Silly Season is anything but.
