CAR SHOW TO RAISE DOUGH Proceeds from event go towards Fairgrove Family Resource Center

BY ELIOT DUKE Staff Writer

BY ERIN WILTGEN Staff Writer With motorcycles and the occasional tractor slipping in with rare trucks and classic automobiles, it certainly won’t be a typical car show. But then again, the motivation for the event isn’t exactly run-of-the-mill, either. Sure, organizer Robert Smith fits the profile of a car enthusiast, cruising in his own automobiles and attending various shows in the area. But Show-U-Care Car Show, held Saturday, May 8, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Fair Grove Elementary School, has a far deeper purpose. The event will help fund the Fairgrove Family Resource Center. “I’m hoping we get a good turnout so we can raise some money for them because it’s for a good cause,” Smith said. Smith is no stranger to the Resource Center’s integral part in the local community. When a fire destroyed his home last November, he and his family of six — him, his wife, three daughters and a son — were left not only without a place to sleep but with little to no worldly possessions. “If it had not been for them, we would’ve starved to death,” Smith said. “The Resource Center really tried to make sure we had something to eat every day.” To return the favor, Smith decided to give back in the only way he knew how. “My thing is hot rods,” he said. “I’m a

Businesses discuss impacts of health bill Staff Writer The Thomasville Area Chamber of Commerce held a Lunch and Learn seminar for local businesses Friday afternoon to discuss the health care reform bill and its impact on business. The seminar, held at the Tom A. Finch Community YMCA in Thomasville from 11:45 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., was led by Marci Wilding, director of government relations at Novant Health. “It was such a hot topic — there wasn’t a day in my office while the debate was going on in Washington that I didn’t get e-mails and phone calls,” said Chamber President Doug Croft, who added that most discussions and coverage he had encountered talked about effects on consumers. “I represent the business

“It came in right around $1.4 million,” council member Mark Swaim said. “We’re very pleased. We will be able to pay off the building as soon as it’s finished, which is what we wanted to do from the very start.” Neil Jarrell, co-owner of Jarrell Contractors, said the

LEXINGTON — Davidson County Sheriff David Grice’s day started well before the sun came up. A phone call of a wanted man refusing to get out of his car on Interstate 85 jumpstarted an Grice already b u s y Tuesday morning. The wily veteran, with his uniform laid out the night before, arrived at the scene around 5 a.m. and began coordinating efforts to negotiate the South Carolina man, who was on the run after allegedly murdering his wife hours earlier, out of his truck so traffic on the now backed up interstate could return to normal. Grice, a sheriff who prides himself on being able to work with different law enforcement agencies, contacted High Point police for use of their armored vehicle, negotiated with the suspect with the help of a Rowan County deputy and coordinated traffic with the highway patrol. “Being a sheriff is running the whole operation and not just blowing up in front of the media,” Grice said. “I take the job seriously, but you don’t want to micro-manage everybody. That’s why you have people out there. If you do make the decisions, you have to make sure they’re carried through. I carry through with what I do.” By 8:30 a.m., Grice and the Davidson County

Wallburg to break ground on new town hall Monday BY ELIOT DUKE Staff Writer

BY ERIN WILTGEN

Grice feels actions speak louder than words

Wallburg’s wait is finally over. On Monday, Wallburg town council members will take part in a ground breaking ceremony for the new town Hall at the corner of Franklin Drive and Highway 109, ending year’s of fiscal and developmental plan-

ning. The ceremony will begin at 8:30 a.m. and is open to the public. Once the ceremony is over, Jarrell Contractors, Inc., out of Salisbury, will begin the construction process. Jarrell Contractors was awarded the project because it submitted the lowest bid, a number that was right in line with what council members had in the budget.

East principal retiring after school year BY ELIOT DUKE Staff Writer Cathi Smith’s friends always told her she would know when it was time to retire. They were right. Smith, the principal at East Davidson High School, announced to faculty and students this week that she plans to retire at the end of the school year, ending her 11-year run at the helm of her alma mater. Smith’s retirement is effective June 30.

Community Sponsor

“Yes, I am,” Smith said. “I announced it [Thursday] that after 34 years in education and 11 years as principal it was time to hang it up for a little while. Everybody kept telling me I would know when it was time and it is. You just feel it. I still love what I do and I love my school, but it’s time for me to take some time for me and my family.” After graduating from EDHS in 1972, Smith taught math at the school for 19 years before leaving for Ledford High School to take the job as assistant

principal. She spent two and a half years there and moved on to the same position at North Davidson High School. After more than a year at NDHS, she returned to East in 1999 as principal. “I’ve spent 34 years of my life in this building,” Smith said of EDHS. “I’m going to miss the students of course. They’re fun to be around, they’re energetic, and they’re just wonderful. They are the heart of any

school.� Smith will finish out the rest of the school year and said she’s in no hurry finding her next challenge. As a lifetime educator, Smith said she isn’t ruling out returning to education, but her plans are to see what’s available before making any final decisions. “I’m looking at all kinds of options and am just seeing what is out there,� Smith said. “I’m going to make some decision down the line a little bit. I’m going to take a little time off and then start thinking about some decisions for me. I don’t doubt for a minute that I’ll find some things to do, maybe in the educational end, maybe not.� What stands out most to Smith and her career as principal at East is the collaborative effort she built within the faculty. Smith credits her staff for their ability to address a situation, good or bad, and handle it in a matter that was in the best interest of the students. “We are a group that was never afraid to attack something head-on,� said Smith. “If we had an issue or problem at school, we weren’t afraid to get together and talk about it and what we needed to do to fix it. We didn’t tip-toe around stuff. We tried to do things that made East the best place we could for every student in this building. That’s what I’ll remember the most.� Davidson County Schools Superintendent Dr. Fred Mock said Smith will be missed and that he hopes to have a successor in place by the July school board meeting. “Cathi Smith has been a dynamic principal who was highly involved in her school, her student body and her entire student population her entire career,� Mock said. “I know of no principal who puts in more time on a daily basis, tending to the needs of her school children. I respect her ability as an educator, problem solver and wish her the very best in her retirement.� Over the course of her career, Smith was named county teacher of the year in 1992, assistant principal of the year for the state in 1999 and twice named DCS principal of the year in 2002 and 2008. Smith has a 23year-old daughter, Shanon, and is married to Mark “Moochie� Smith. During the past year, EDHS opened a new English and foreign languages building as well as an addition the cafeteria.

Sheriff ’s Office convinced the man to surrender, ending the standoff as peacefully as possible. Grice’s morning was off and running. He finally made it to his office by 11:30, after speaking to a radio station and a dozen other media outlets wanting information about the standoff, where a man needing some forms signed waited patiently. With his secretary passing him another handful of messages, Grice took a few minutes to help the man by signing his permits before finally making it to his office at the end of the hall. This is Grice’s politics. He has attended all the forums and refuted all the arguments against him, but for him, the best way to get his point across is by doing what he does best — his job. “I think that is the best way for people to know what I’m doing,� said Grice. “I’m out there, every day, doing my job, and the people know that by how many arrests we’ve made, the cooperation we have with other agencies and how proactive we are in the community. That’s what is important to me.�

now actively working in law enforcement. DCSO has arrested more than 450 sex offenders and all but eradicated meth labs in the county under Grice, in addition to reducing the crime rate by 25 percent in the past year. “I think I offer the best qualifications in all aspects of law enforcement,� Grice said. “I think my formal education, in which I have real college degrees, and my management experience are what the citizens of the county come to expect from their sheriff.� During the next four years, Grice hopes to find a resolution to solve the jail space needs for DCSO and continue making end roads in combating the diverted pill problem that has become

the latest drug issue facing the community. “We are always trying to catch the thieves,� said Grice. “We’ll continue working with the breaking and entering task force as well as the student resource officer programs.� Once a month, Grice sits down with representatives from throughout the county for breakfast, discussing ways to improve life for Davidson County residents. He has spent the last five-plus years implementing that idea. For him, this version of politics outweighs any signs or mis-interpretation of statistics. Grice calls it just doing his job.

SHOW From page A1 Christian guy, and my belief is if someone helps you and, if there’s a chance that you can help them out, you should do it.� But the car show offers much more than just a taste of classic cars. A true family event, the show will have hot dogs, drinks and snacks available, as well as free face painting and hair coloring. Live music provided by one of Smith’s friends will serenade guests throughout the day. A 50-50 drawing also will be held, with tickets selling at three for $1 and seven for $5. Half of the proceeds from the drawing will go to the Resource Center and half will go to the winner. Door prizes — given out every hour — include donated items such as car cleaning kits, oil changes and Dominos Pizza coupons. “There’s a mass variety of all kinds of stuff that we’re going to have,� Smith said. “We hope that it’s going to be a good time and a good show.� The show itself will feature cars in different classes running from the 1930s, 40’s, 50’s, all the way to present day. Each category will have a first and second place trophy. A best in show trophy — named the Lindsey Hipp Memorial Trophy after the 12-year-old friend of Smith’s daughter who died in a car crash this week –— also will be

awarded, to total 23 trophies in all. “Most people will come to a car show if you’ve got what they call a lot of hardware to give away,� Smith said. Smith has been interested in cars since childhood. His dad had a few classic cars, and the two would go “hot-rodding� together. A former truckdriver himself, Smith said that up until a few years ago he had run a truck show in the area five years in a row. “The car show is, in my opinion, one of the easiest things to put together if you know the right people,� he said. And as much a part of his life as cars are, the Resource Center has apparently played a big role as well. “We’ve known him for years,� said Terri Nelson, the center’s executive director. “He has supported but also benefited from the resource center. This is a good, sweet family.� Given his personal experience with the Resource Center, Smith said he knows how much the program helps the people in Thomasville and Davidson County alike. “Terri Nelson does a lot of good for this community,� he said. “I don’t want to see anything happen to that place because there’s a lot of people in Davidson county that count on them to eat. And my family was one of them last year. I want to do what I can to help them so they can keep their doors open.�

FOCUS

Up, up and away UNCLE BILL’S CORNER

BILL HILL Guest Columnist When I was in my teen years my parents would give me perhaps five dollars and say,� Now don’t spend all of that money in one place� ( or) That five dollars should last you all week, and don’t ask for anymore.� (or) Young Man.� Money don’t grow on a tree!� I head these phrases over and over again — sometimes it was like one of those plastic 45 playing records, of course your choice of color was black!

�You know the records that had a big hole in the middle of them you had to have a plastic disk in the middle of the hole it to make it go smoothly round and round to play.� — or those “Big black plastic records which was a 78.� “ Now, if they got scratched the words would repeat, and repeat, and repeat, .until you decided to pick the handle up off the record, and place the needle head diamond point in a different location and continue to listen, and of course you lost words of the song�! �That’s the way my generation grew up listening to our favorite records.� Repetative, repetative, repetative everything had to be repeated, repeated, repeated, until you were just about gone wild. This reminded me of a loving older couple who constantly told one another how to spend their money. This, I bet will give you a big grin

or a laugh out loud on this Saturday morning!. Fred and his wife Edna went to the State fair every year, they loved going to the fair. Every year Fred would say,� Edna, I’d like to ride that there airplane.� And every year Edna would say, “I know Fred, but that airplane ride costs ten dollars, and ten dollars is ten dollars, Fred!� One year Fred and Edna went to the state fair and Fred said,� Edna I’m 71 years old. If I don’t ride that there airplane this year I may never get another chance.� Edna replied, Fred that there airplane ride costs ten dollars, and ten dollars is ten dollars!� Poor Fred was so disgusted! The pilot overheard them and said.� Folks I’ll make you a deal.� “ I’ll take you both up for a ride, IF you can stay quiet for the entire ride and not say one

IMPACTS From page A1 community, and I want to help my businesses know the impact to them.� Wilding progressed through the legislation from beginning to end, hitting the main points of the bill from the expansion of Medicare to coverage of those with preexisting conditions. Over all, the health care bill will cost $940 billion. Of that cost, 51 percent will be covered with a decrease in spending and 49 percent through an increase in revenue, Wilding said. “There’s been a misconception in the literature that I have read about health care reform that hospitals and other health care providers will be held harmless when it comes to health care reform because as more people become insured or are on compensated care, it saves a tremendous amount of money for each of our hospitals and our systems as a whole, which is true,� Wilding said. But the decrease in Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements overshadows the decreases in uninsured care expenses, she said. Hospitals will have $164 billion cuts in reimbursements, and Wilding said that, according to a pre-mature estimate, Novant will lose $15 million a year staring in 2014 when the insurance mandate goes into affect. “As you can imagine, that’s a hard pill to swallow,� she said. Insurance reforms that the health care reform bill implements include a proration of excessive waiting periods, or waiting periods of 90 days or more. Insurance companies also must report their administrative expenses and other costs of running the company. If those costs exceed a certain limit, the insurance company will be required to return some of those

funds to beneficiaries of the insurance. Wilding also pointed out some more randomseeming aspects of the bill, such as the 10 percent tax on tanning beds, a requirement that any chain with 20 or more locations, including vending machines, must have calorie content readily available, and a segment saying that employers have to provide a reasonable break time for nursing mothers for the first year of their child’s life. “The far-reaching impact of health care reform I think is illustrated in these provisions,� Wilding said. Many of the business people present worked within the health care or insurance profession, or simply wanted a guide through the confusing maze of the health care bill. “I insure so many small businesses,� said Debbie Fanary of Mountcastle Insurance. “It’s a concern. It’s going to affect them tremendously.�

Another bubble inflating? VIEWPOINT

MONA CHAREN Syndicated Columnist The Democrats’ narrative about the financial crisis of 2008 (and the justification for financial reform) goes like this: Investment bankers, typified by Goldman Sachs, manipulated markets, bamboozled investors, and in their greed, managed to bring the entire economy to its knees. The solution is more strenuous government regulation. Republicans, who are beholden to Wall Street, are blocking reform. The Democrats excel at presenting legislative tableaux with predigested morals: Stern Democratic lawmaker grills slippery Wall Street executive. Democrats for the people; Republicans for the fat cats. Do people really buy this anymore? Everyone I know who works on Wall Street is a Democrat. Anecdotes are not evidence, but consider this: According to the Center for Responsive Politics, Democrats received $11.3 million in contributions from hedge funds in 2008. Republicans got $5.9 million. Some critics of the Dodd bill note that it would give broad discretion to the FDIC and a new regulator to decide which firms would be bailed out and which would not. That isn’t so much preventing another crisis as institutionalizing “too big to fail.” The moral hazard problem -- i.e., encouraging risky practices with the implicit or explicit promise of a bailout — remains. Further, the Dodd bill — and the Democrats’ narrative — completely omits the role of government in the financial debacle. Neither Fannie Mae nor Freddie Mac is mentioned in the legislation. But the incentives created by government, specifically the sustained push through law and regulation to provide mortgages to more and more uncreditworthy borrowers, created the conditions for the housing bubble and for its eventual crash. The wizards of Wall Street may have concocted exotic ways to make money by betting on the fortunes of the real estate market, but it was the politicians who first destabilized that market. Let’s stipulate that the masters of the universe on Wall Street may deserve flaying, and sensible reform requiring more transparency and limiting leverage is well and good. But when the federal budget deficit stands at $1.5 trillion,

the spectacle of congressmen and senators waxing indignant about the irresponsibility of others is a bit much. Leaders have a responsibility to be prudent with the taxpayers’ money. At least Wall Street trades are between consenting parties. But when politicians gamble with taxpayer money, it’s different. We don’t willingly sign on to these bets. Yet by their profligacy, elected officials are placing our financial futures at severe risk. Nicole Gelinas, writing in City Journal, sketches what may be the next crash to rock our world. It’s another investment, like housing, that people assume cannot fail — municipal bonds. They are risk free, investors have long been assured, because the cities and states that issue them would do anything to avoid default. Besides, “they ... have a captive source of endless funds ... State and local governments ... can always tax their residents and businesses to pay the bills.” Between 2000 and 2008, states were rolling in cash, pulling in tax revenues that outpaced inflation by 15 percent. But instead of using this windfall to reduce their debts, states continued to spend freely, particularly on expensive union contracts, education, and Medicaid. When the recession began, Gelinas notes, “state and local officials should have realized that hard fiscal times were coming and begun cutting back ... Instead they kept on spending, and borrowed to do it.” States are now deeply in debt. The most extreme cases — California, New York, and New Jersey — are well known. But the average state now owes 2.1 percent of its residents’ annual income. The 2009 stimulus bill only exacerbated the problem by pumping $200 billion in “reality-distorting funds” into state and municipal coffers, delaying the reckoning and permitting states to continue their reckless spending. What will happen when states can no longer sustain the public employee pensions and health benefits, the Medicaid payments, and the education spending? Gelinas offers a glimpse of a possible future in the case of Vallejo, California. The city declared bankruptcy in 2008 to escape from crippling union contracts. Vallejo was successful, but in the process, it delayed payments on its bonds for three years. Other bondholders might not be so lucky. It’s not hard, Gelinas writes “to imagine some future mayor convincing a bankruptcy judge that it’s only fair for bondholders, along with union members, to take big cuts in a restructuring.” When Democrats preen that they are fighting for the average guy, ask this: When they vastly overspend, what happens to the ordinary person who dutifully pays his taxes and prudently invests in “safe” municipal bonds?

Letters to the Editor Dear Editor: As Early Childhood Educators, there are many things that we know. Research tells us that the first five years of life lay the foundation for all future learning. Also, more than 40 years of early education research shows that high quality early education experiences positively impact young children. Research tells us that those participating in high quality care are far more likely to graduate from high school, commit less crimes, be homeowners, and have higher earnings. More importantly, they will provide communities with a higher skilled workforce that will be required as technology continues to expand. This past week Governor Bev Perdue released her proposed state budget for the 2010-2011 fiscal year. This budget makes critical investments in four key areas, edu-

As of the writing of this letter I have attained that goal, having over 4,021 signatures in hand. However, the Board of Elections also told me that I would need about 10 percent more than that to make up for the ones they will throw out for various reasons, so therefore we will be working some of the polls on Primary day to get the remaining few hundred signatures needed to ensure that we have enough. So be looking for us at some of the polls on Election Day May 5th. and sign the petitions. If you would like to volunteer to work a poll, give me a call at 561-1760. Thank you, and God bless.

HALL From page A1 town hall is projected to take 280 days to complete, weather permitting. He is optimistic that weather will not be a factor as much of the construction will take place during summer months, so by the time winter arrives, much of the remaining work will be done inside. “We’re getting started Monday,” said Jarrell. “They had some alternates to their original plans and were able to afford that. In today’s market, from what I have heard, everything is coming in either at or below budget. Very few jobs in the last six months have been over budget. Everyone’s hungry and ready to work.” Architect John Fuller presented the council with a design at the end

He was a president of the United Methodist Men, taught Sunday school, delivered meals from the Masters Table, participated in “WINGS”, worked in the Stephen Ministries and with senior citizens.

completion. Throughout their lives, Jerry and Jane loved to travel. After Jerry’ retirement, they travelled extensively across the world, but their favorite place in the world was the “Baker’s Dozen” beach cottage in Oak Island, N.C. J.C.

RELIGION

The God of everyday KEEPING THE FAITH

DOUG CREAMER Religion Columnist When you see the pictures or hear the stories of the damage and destruction caused by the tornadoes that occurred in Mississippi, it seems all we can do is lift up a prayer for the victims. I saw one womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s story about her granddaughter being next door when the tornado hit. The tornado took off the back of the grandmotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house but when she got up to check on her grandchild the house where

she was at was totally gone. An angel must have caught her in the whirlwind and set her down safely so she could run to the safety of another neighborâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house. There are many tragic stories of human suffering occurring around the world. There have been major earthquakes, fires, volcanic eruptions, and other tragedies where lives have been spared and others lost. With all these major world events going on, we must be keeping God and His angels pretty busy. Many of us are praying that God will intervene and help the victims who are suffering. Others have gone to help those who are dealing with the aftermath of these tragic events. In many ways, I believe that many of the volunteers who go into tragic situations and offer their help are like human angels. Groups like the

American Red Cross and Samaritanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Purse and other organizations who are so quickly on the scene of tragic events to help survivors are doing such a wonderful thing for those who are suffering. They are, in my opinion, Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hands and feet and the answer to so many prayers. When there are so many tragic situations around where we all want God to intervene and help people, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to imagine that God has time to interact with us on an everyday basis. There are so many world events and local tragedies where we hope God intervenes to help people, how could He have time to interact with all of us individually? The problem is more on our side in our lack of understanding Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s omnipresence. God can be everywhere at once, something our limited minds just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t com-

lives. He is present with us and He promises never to leave or forsake us. If that is true, and it is, then we should be able to see His hand in our lives. He works in so many mysterious and wonderful ways that you have to look closely to see His hand. I think that our problem is that we are so busy with everyday life, so focused on completing tasks, that we miss God. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like the scriptures tell us that God is in the soft and gentle breeze. He comes to us in a whisper. We have to turn off the noise in order to listen. We have to look at life differently if we want to really see. The simple fact is God is trying to speak to us, communicate with us, comfort and heal us, but we have become distracted by other things and we end up missing God. He is always with us, as close as our breath.

I want to encourage you this week to look and listen for God. As you live your daily lives going about routine tasks, watch for Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hand. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s there and He wants to be discovered. Listen for that still small voice to guide you in even the simplest of lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decisions. He wants to help you. He wants to draw close to you. Slow down long enough to look and listen because I think you will be pleasantly surprised. God really is with us, every hour of every day. I pray you see and experience it for yourself.

prehend. God can be comforting the victims of the tornado and sitting with me on my front porch at the same time. Sometimes we might feel guilty or even selfish wanting God to be with us when there are so many others who desperately need His presence. But God is with them while He is with us too. I believe that God is more active in our everyday lives than we realize. I actually believe that God wants to interact with us more, but we miss Him. When we stop to smell the flowers, we sense the presence of God because Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s smelling them too. When we see a rainbow in the sky do we stop and appreciate Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s handiwork? I believe God steps back to appreciate His own work and that is when we can bump into Him.

East athletics to benefit from event BY MATTHEW AMICK

CALENDAR MONDAY SOCCER Salisbury @ Thomasville 7 p.m. SOCCER N. Forsyth @ Ledford 7 p.m.

Times Correspondent The East Davidson Athletics Booster Club is looking to raise money to go towards the softball field and a recently purchased lawn mower, by hosting a Casino Night on May 15. Tickets are $50 each or two for $75 with the doors opening at 6 p.m. at 12 W. Main St. in Thomasville, and the games will run from 7-9. Organizer Lisa Warren, wants everyone to know that there will be dealers at the tables to help anyone that is unfamiliar with any of the games. “A couple of people I’ve talked to have said that they don’t know how to play the games,

but the dealers are there to help teach and it will be instructional for those who don’t know how to play,” said Warren. “I don’t want to scare people off that otherwise would want to come, just because they don’t know how to play the games.” The Booster Club will be renting the tables from Charlie Grubb, operator of Casino Party Kings in Wallburg. Although they have several businesses in the community who have offered to sponsor tables to help offset the cost, they are still looking for a few more. The cost is $250 a table and each sponsor will receive two raffle tickets and also advertising on the table. The casino will offer craps, roulette, along with two tables set up for Texas Hold’em, as well as four tables dedicated to Blackjack.

In addition to the games, there will also be food. Above and Beyond from High Point will be catering heavy hors d’oeuvres for everyone in attendance. Also, local DJ Jeff Brown will also be manning the turntables and providing some music for the festivities. As a major incentive, Warren says they are working on prizes and raffles for the most successful gamblers. “When you buy a ticket you get $10,000 worth of chips to play off of,” Warren explained. “Then at the end of the night, depending on how well you’ve done, for every $5,000 in chips that you’ve won, you earn a raffle.”

to take advantage of it,” Smith said in a statement released by the school. “This would give me a great opportunity to see where I stack up against other NBA prospects.” If Smith were to go to the NBA, he certainly would have lots of competition in the draft. The list released by the NBA on Thursday included 80 college underclassmen and 23 international players; the June 24 draft features just 60 selections. Smith is one of just two ACC underclassmen to

It’s race week in Darlington, and I am sitting in my office — also in Darlington. I am surrounded by flyers and posters and cardboard stand-ups of various drivers smiling hopeful smiles, most of which will be replaced by scowls and a few choice words once the green flag drops at the cantankerous old track. I’m thinking about what happened last year and 10 years ago, and what might happen next week, when that familiar wave of nostalgia hits me. For those who are fans of NASCAR’s grand and slightly checkered past as well as its glamorous present, there is simply no better time of year than the month of May. The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series events run in May offer some of the best racing of the season at three of the sport’s finest — and oldest — tracks. These include, in addition to Darlington Raceway, Richmond International Raceway, whose furious short track action generally fans a few flames and whips up some sort of a grudge match headed into Darlington, and Charlotte Motor Speedway, home of both the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race and the annual NASCAR marathon also known as the CocaCola 600. These places can only be described as legacy tracks. Darlington’s first race was held in 1950, and Richmond was hot on its heels, opening the gates in 1953. Charlotte is the baby of this family; they

Wolfpack’s Smith enters name in NBA Draft BY BRYAN STRICKLAND Durham Herald Sun One day after N.C. State added some serious talent to its basketball roster, Wolfpack fans are crossing their fingers that they don’t lose a talented veteran. Junior Tracy Smith’s name popped up on the early entry draft list released by the NBA on Thursday, though Smith hasn’t hired an agent. Smith, a post player who was a second-team all-ACC pick after leading N.C. State with 16.5 points and 7.3 rebounds

per game, has until May 8 to decide whether to withdraw his name and stay in school. “We support Tracy in this decision,” N.C. State coach Sidney Lowe said in a statement released by the school. “This is a great opportunity available to college players, and we support Tracy in taking advantage of it. It provides a good experience for them to see what areas of their game need improvement.” Wednesday, Lowe and the Wolfpack got a commitment from big-time forward C.J. Leslie for

next season, giving N.C. State one of the nation’s top incoming classes with guards Ryan Harrow and Lorenzo Brown already in the fold. Those three, along with Smith and other returning talent, could vault the Wolfpack into the upper half of the ACC overnight. Smith, however, is undoubtedly key to the puzzle, and N.C. State has to hope his entry into the draft pool is merely for information. “I love playing basketball at N.C. State, but this would be a win-win situation for me if I am able

The casual summer fishing trip OFF THE PORCH

DICK JONES Outdoor Columnist

It was a family trip in the summer to Nags Head and I decided I’d spent enough time looking at the souvenir stores with the same tired tee shirts, bobble heads, and jars with witty sayings like “Ashes of Dead Husbands”. I decided to just spend an afternoon sitting in a lawn chair holding a fishing rod and enjoying the sun and sound of the ocean. It turned out to be one of the most memorable fishing trips of my life. I walked out to the beach from the rental house with a chair, a bucket with ice and some bait, and a fishing rod. I baited up, cast into a calm surf, and immediately got a bite. I didn’t hook the fish, so I rebaited and tried again. The hook was only in the water a few minutes when I got another bite and, once again, missed the fish. I was determined to catch one of the bait stealers and

find out what it was and I did. Two hours later, my bucket held enough eating sized bluefish to feed the whole party. We had a fish fry that night. Even the most serious fisherman isn’t interested in hardcore fishing all the time. Sometimes you just want to relax and chill out. We’re coming up on the season for weekend trips to the coast and I thought I’d put together a list of all you need to have a great casual beach fishing trip. The stuff we talk about will work just fine any where a light surf sinker will hold and is simple enough that you can carry it out across the dunes and fish in comfort.

The Right Combination All you need for this kind of fishing is a simple eight or nine foot surf rod that will cast three or four ounces, more than that is over kill. Of course, the most casual way is to simply buy a “Walmart Special” the slang name for a cheap rod/reel combo available in almost any variety store within fifty miles of the coast. Normally they sell for about $40 and will do nicely for the casual summer fishing trip. Remember though that unless you wash them off and spray them with WD40, they will be too

rusty to use next year. Should you decide to go a little higher class, you still don’t have to take out a second mortgage to be well equipped. The rod should have reasonable backbone and low weight. I like the Tica Tc2 surf rods for this kind of fishing, they’re light and have ample backbone. The reel can be almost any brand you prefer, though most folks will do better with a spinning reel for this type of fishing. I really like the Abu Garcia and Pflueger brands, though almost any brand reel will work fine. The reel should handle about 200 yards of 14 pound test line and have a smooth drag. The line you chose is important, with mono, 14 pound test is about perfect for this. If you wish for an even better rig, go with a 20 pound braid like Stren Sonic Braid. This will give you the same line capacity with additional strength and much more sensitivity.

On the end of the line All the other equipment you need can go in the cooler/bucket with your bait. Two or three floater type two hook rigs will fill your needs along with, three or four sinkers from two ounces to four ounces, a few size 1/0 hooks, and an extra snap swivel

or two. This’ll all fit into one of those small opaque tackle trays you can buy anywhere. For bait, you can buy local mullet and shrimp and prepare it before you go out onto the beach by filleting off the mullet and cutting it into small strips and then salting it down with table salt. The salt will make your cut mullet and shrimp tough and keep it on the hook. For the bottom hook, a sand flea right out of the beach in front of you works great for Pompano, one of the best eating fish on the North Carolina Coast. If you don’t want to deal with dead fish, shrimp or catching sand-fleas, buy Fishbites or Berkley Gulp. These products are actually edible baits that require no refrigeration and provided you don’t contaminate them, they’ll stay fresh and fishable for months. They’re available at almost all tackle shops in coastal areas. Something else to always have is a one or two ounce Stingsilver or Hopkins lure. Should you see birds working the water, cast the spoon into the area under them, wind as hard as you can, and expect some Spanish Mackerel or bluefish action. The best color is white and silver with the pink/green

combo next in line.

Keeping it Comfortable The other part of the equation consists of those items that are there just for the sake of comfort. Your cooler/bucket can hold a couple of cold drinks, you probably need some sunscreen, a pair of sunglasses will go a long way, and I can assure you that I won’t be on the beach without a hat, a straw fedora in summer is my preference. Of course, you need a cooler/bucket and a comfortable beach chair. A small sand spike makes life easier, too. On that Nags Head trip, I figured out how to catch those bluefish and had a memorable afternoon of fishing with little planning or effort. Do it right and you can be a hero at suppertime.

I talked to the Sunset pier at ocean Isle this week and they still haven’t gotten into the spring bluefish/Spanish runs they’re famous for. Hatteras is getting spotty action with some big drum and some false albacore providing the highest class thrills with some bluefish on metal spoons. The Roanoke continues to be the big story in spite of a lull in the fishing. I talked to Rod Thomas of Captain Ponytail Guide Service in Lexington. Rod is fishing the Roanoke and booked almost solid until mid May. “The last three or four days have been spotty due to a water drop but there are multiple schools of fish in the Weldon area.” Thomas reported. “If you’re drifting and you find a school and pick up a few fish, mark the spot and when you run out of the fish, go back up for another pass. The fish aren’t dense enough to make long drifts just yet.” “Most of our fish are coming on live bait. I’ve had a couple of charters who only fished artificials and they’re catch was marginal. The fishing is best early and late. From noon to 6 p.m. has been the slowest time with the bite picking up late in the day.” Thomas said.

SPORTS YEAR From page B1 didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t start superspeedway racing until 1960. Just to add a little icing on the cake, the NASCAR Hall of Fame will officially celebrate its grand opening this month, as well. Seriously, May is so richly grounded in racing tradition itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like one of those chocolate truffles that are so sweet they actually hurt your teeth. It almost makes you want to give the other months a hug, just to make them feel better about themselves. Cruising through the garage on race weekend at some of these older tracks makes you feel like an extra in the movie Back to the Future. On any given day you might see David Pearson eating a sandwich while explaining the vagaries of Darlingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Turn 2 to a rookie driver, Bud Moore leaning up against a stack of Goodyears in Charlotte, or Richard Petty pretty much anywhere, ambling around and just being nice to people, because thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how he rolls. Not too many years ago, you stood a pretty decent chance of bumping into another guy, checking things out with a sharp eye while chomping on a hot dog, which was his fa-

vorite food. Media-friendly drivers aside, the late Bill France, Jr. is probably stock car racingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most recognizable face. The new book titled Bill France Jr.: The Man Who Made NASCAR, couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have been released at a more appropriate time. As the races this month chronicle the expansion of NASCARâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s early years, the book chronicles the hand that primarily guided its growth for more than three decades. As author H.A. Branham has structured the story, Franceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life and career mirrors the evolution of the sport with which his familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name is synonymous. For example, France spent his early days selling snow cones at the track and yanking people off fences who were trying to watch the races for free. Later, he brokered the groundbreaking sponsorship deal with RJR that would brand the entire Cup Series with the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top product name. Back then, the sheer scope of such an idea was basically untried and unheard of. Branham describes it as â&#x20AC;&#x153;a match between an outlaw sport and an outlaw product.â&#x20AC;? During those first couple of decades of racing at these tracks we now consider the cornerstones of the sport, NASCAR re-

ally was a snow cone-eating, fence-yanking kind of animal â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a renegade. But thanks in large part to that outlandish sponsorship idea, a trail was blazed for companies like current series sponsor Sprint to move in with innovative technology that provides the perfect vehicle for the contemporary face of stock car racing. Sadly, France is gone, but his son Brian stepped into those ambitious shoes, and kept right on walking. And the beat goes on. Sponsors will inevitably come and go, and NASCAR will continue to identify its boundaries, and then expand them. The cool thing is that while moving ahead just as far and fast as it can go, the heart of NASCAR will still find a way to remain grounded in its past. If history came alive in the classroom like it does at Darlington, Richmond and Charlotte, we would all have been much better students way back when. Thank goodness â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and thank NASCAR â&#x20AC;&#x201D; these old teachers are still on the job. Just ask the drivers still pursuing those elusive A+ trophy grades â&#x20AC;&#x201D; they still have something left to teach us.

Change tactics TAYLOR MADE

takes energy to initiate change — so use that skittish energy (motivate the elephant in SWITCH) and harness it into focused effort. Effectively confront the problem of “no, no’s” What is the difference between a skeptic and a no,no? Kotter sees the

value that skeptics bring to the change process and I agree wholeheartedly. If you are about to embark on a plan with a major flaw, you need to hear about how and why it won’t work. Although a cautious skeptic wants to be right, he also wants the plan to work. He may supply critical information about how

MARILYN TAYLOR Guest Columnist If the heart-head strategy described in last week’s article resonates with you — its time to examine the accompanying tactics. In a sense of urgency John Kotter offers four, a surprisingly low number when you consider all he could say on the topic of change: Bring the outside inside Many times I hear employees talk about ‘all the problems around here’ as if they were unique to their workplace. In point of fact, 80-90 percent of similar organizations could be experiencing the very same thing. If folks aren’t exposed to that, they don’t see it. When an employee gets up and comes to work in the morning (or evening), reports to the same place, and works only with the same people — they can easily conclude that any and all shortcomings are due to local site management or their organization. We get used to things. We get comfortable with how things are — even when they could be better. Complacency is invisible to those on the inside. Bringing the outside in is a way to infuse fresh ideas and an objective viewpoint into the workplace that desires change. Behave with true urgency every single day Change in business used to be more episodic. Think of a push for change, the slow down after, and then the lull until time for another change came along. Now the change pace is more continuous. Think of one wave after another (and another) quickly coming toward us. To view change as continuous is to adjust our expectations and eventually lower our stress around it. When we no longer expect things to remain as they were, we can develop a culture that is more responsive, flexible, and able to change. It starts with the habit of behaving with true urgency, daily. View crisis as a potential opportunity, as well as a threat With continuous change and fast-moving markets comes the need for swift and decisive action. Individuals and organizations are constantly thrown into what is considered a ‘crisis’. But first think about whether the situation actually IS a crisis, or whether it is or simply being viewed in that way. Second, if it is an actual crisis, then a shift away from panic mode will likely bring a better result. Third, seeing the new reality as a possible WIN is the kind of thinking that can calm yet motivate others. It

SPORTS ATHLETICS From page B1 â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you win $25,000 in chips, then you would get five raffle tickets.â&#x20AC;? The grand prize is $1,000 so anybody who buys a raffle ticket is automatically entered in to the pot for a chance to win the thousand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You do not have to be present to win the $1,000, but you do have to be present to win the raffle items,â&#x20AC;? Warren said.

FOR YOUR RETIREMENT Tax-free income is the best gift you can give yourself at retirement. Converting to a Roth IRA from a traditional IRA allows for tax-free accumulation as well as tax-free withdrawals in retirement â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which means you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to worry as much about what income tax rates will be in the future. There are tax considerations and other factors that determine whether converting to a Roth IRA is right for you. And changes set for 2010 will eliminate the $100,000 modiďŹ ed adjusted gross income (MAGI) limit, which means anyone can convert to a Roth IRA.
