Local officials optimistic, despite trying times BY ERIN WILTGEN Staff Writer

City of Thomasville and Davidson County officials alike gathered for a moment of jovial socializing, taking a brief escape from the daunting task of keeping the area afloat amidst the floundering economy and listening with at least slight optimism to the not-sobleak city and county reports. Police officers, com-

missioners, school b o a r d and city council members heard a brief overview from Craver Thomasville City Manager Kelly Craver and County Commission Chair Dr. Max Walser at Colonial Country Club Thursday, as part of the Thomasville Area

Chamber of Commerce’s State of the City and County. “ We ’ r e very fortunate to Walser have leaders in our community that are passionate about our community,” said Keith Tobin, superintendent of Thomasville City Schools and chamber board chair.

“I feel blessed to be in this community because of the leaders we have. I’m excited about the direction in which we’re headed.” Craver took the podium with a fairly somber demeanor. “I’d like to say I’m coming to you with all the answers to all of the questions in our community,” he told the crowd. “But we’re really facing the elusive question of, what is the new normal?”

LEXINGTON — With a dismal decade in the rear-view mirror, the Davidson County Economic Development Commission is focusing its sights on the future in hopes of turning around the local economy. During the annual EDC meeting at Sapona Country Club Tuesday, executive director Steve Googe said Davidson County has taken several economic hits since 2000. A doubledigit unemployment rate, a slumping housing market, high foreclosures and shrinking employment opportunities have plagued the county in recent years, but Googe said there may be signs of recovery. “We didn’t have a great year but there were some significant new and expanding industries to come to Davidson County,” Googe said. “We ranked fourth in the state in jobs announced with 1,360 and sixth in job investments. We also have been in the top 10 of the 780 micopolitans in the country just about every year. Although it’s a very

Sand mining threatens Rich For Creek water quality BY ERIN WILTGEN Staff Writer

LEXINGTON — Despite wastewater from three cities pouring into Rich Fork Creek, Davidson County Board of Commissioners learned Thursday that the most imminent problem for the stream’s water quality actually comes as a result of sand mining. According to Tetra Tech, a third-party firm brought in to study water quality at Rich Fork Creek, sand mining has widened and deepened the stream, slowing stream flow and reducing the quality of the aquatic environment. Tetra Tech analyzed the water’s dissolved oxygen levels and looked at the 79-square-mile discharge coming from Westside wastewater treatment plant. “If we break this down, what we see is most of the time oxygen up stream of

the plant and down stream of the plant is well above state standard,” said Tetra Tech Director Trevor Clements. “But all of a sudden, between Highway 109 and Middle School Road there is a small decrease, and that is significant in water quality terms.” After collecting this data, Clements and his staff walked the stream, searching for clues pointing to the decrease in water quality. What they found was sand mining at three bridges crossing over the river. “In each of those areas, instead of the stream looking like it should, it had been carved out,” Clements said. “It had extra width and the stream bank was very steep.” A normal stream boasts a bed 20 to 30 feet wide with a sloping bank and cov-

Getting accustomed to a new school year is difficult for just about everyone. Students have to wake up early, parents have to make sure their children get up on time and motorists heading to work have to account for the extra traffic surrounding school buses and their many stops along the way. Schedule changes, particularly in the morning, can often lead to hurrying, both at home and on the roads. One of the biggest changes surrounding the start of school are the speed limits in school zones. Every year, for the first few weeks of school, motorists forget that going 35 or 40 mph in a school zone is speeding and will lead to a tick-

Davidson County Schools to pursue construction bonds BY ERIN WILTGEN Staff Writer Davidson County Board of Commissioners gave Davidson County Schools the go-ahead to apply for more Qualified School Construction Bonds (QSCB) to use to build a new middle school. QSCB bonds are federal bonds that came out of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 and can only be used to finance construction or renovation of public schools. Davidson County Schools applied for and received $3 million in QSCB bonds at the end of July, but the 2010 QSCB fund had about $50 million remaining even after all off the applicants received their bid. School systems are able to apply for up to $10 million of the excess, and applications must be received by Sept. 8 — the reason why commissioners approved the application Thursday rather than waiting for the next regular meeting on

Webster’s New World Dictionary defined compassion as: “sympathy, to feel petty, sorrow for suffering, or troubles of others, accompanied by an urge to help someone in need.� Come with me to a third grade classroom. This is a true story and I am not giving out real names. There was an 8-year-old little boy sitting at his desk and all of a sudden, there was a puddle between his feet and the front of his pants were wet. He thinks his heart is going to stop because he cannot possibly imagine how this has happened. It’s never happened before, and he knows that when the boys find out he will never hear the end of it. When the girls find out, they’ll never speak to him as long as he lives. He is horribly upset and distraught about the situation. The boy is at the verge of tears. He puts his head down and prays this prayer, “Dear GOD, this is an emergency! I need help right this minute! People will always make fun of me and I am ashamed, please Dear GOD, help me!� He looks up from his prayer and there

comes the teacher with a look in her eyes that says he has been discovered. As the teacher is walking toward him, a classmate I will name Linda is carrying a goldfish bowl that is filled with water. Linda, trips in front of the teacher and inexplicably dumps the bowl of water in the little boy’s lap. The boy pretends to be angry, but all the while is saying to himself, “Thank you, Lord! Thank you, Lord!� Now all of a sudden, instead of being the object of ridicule, the boy is the object of sympathy. The teacher rushes him downstairs and gives him gym shorts to put on while his pants dry out. All the other children are on their hands and knees cleaning around the desk. The sympathy is wonderful. But as life would have it, the ridicule that should have been his has now transferred to someone else — Linda! She tries to help, but the classmates tell her to get out. “You’ve done enough, you Klutz!� And the ugly comments continued through the day!� Finally, at the end of the day, the boy walks over to Linda and whispers, “You did that on purpose, didn’t you?� Linda whispers back, “I wet my pants once, too.� This little story makes us all stop and think about other peoples actions and compassion for one another. Sometimes, we learn it from children. May God help us see the opportunities that are always around us to do good. Remem-

ber, just going to church doesn’t make you a Christian anymore than standing in your garage makes you a mechanic. Each and everyone of us is going through tough times right now with this economy, and loss of jobs, loss of medical insurance, loss of homes, less food on our tables, and the list could go on. But I truly believe God is getting ready to bless you in a way that only He can. I say to you, “Keep the Faith my Friend.� So, I will end this column today with a prayer just for you; Father, I ask You, bless these friends, relatives and those that we care about deeply. I pray for those who are reading this right now. Show them a new revelation of Your love and power. Holy Spirit, I ask You to minister to their spirit at this very moment. Where there is pain give them your peace and mercy. Where there is self-doubt, release a renewed confidence through Your grace. When there is need, I ask you to fulfill their needs, if this is Your will. Bless their homes, finances, their goings and their comings. Amen! Have a safe Labor Day weekend, and remember, show someone compassion today, tomorrow, and forever. Be a giver in life, not a Taker. Be safe, be strong, be happy!

FROM PAGE 1 QUALITY From page 1 ered in trees for stabilization. Rich Fork Creek spanned 75 to 100 feet wide with a steep bank and no trees. Clements said they also found excessive treefall between the mining areas. But not only did sand mining widen and deepen the stream, Clements says such erosive practices also disconnected Rich Fork Creek from the flood plane and affected the velocity of the water. The decreased reaeration and increased sediment oxygen demand resulting from this, as well as an increased heating from the loss of a tree canopy, has lowered water quality Tetra Tech then spent two years collecting data and measurements from the river, hoping that from there they could create a model to see whether or not fixing sand-mined areas would improve water quality. The model was composed of two what-if scenarios — removing the discharge and restoring the stream. If the county decided to just remove the wastewater discharge, Tetra Tech’s model shows the system completely crashing, void of oxygen and life. Clements said that over time the ecosystem would adapt and quality would improve, but it would be well under the state limit. Restoring the stream, according to the model, would put quality at or above the standard. “That’s not the only thing that needs

to be done in the stream,” Clements said. “There are other things that need to happen in terms of restoring water quality. But restoring the sand mine areas is going to have wide-range impacts on the stream, including improving hydraulics and improving water quality of that stream.” Another change that should improve the river’s condition does, in fact, have to do with the wastewater discharge. But instead of eliminating such discharge all together, Chris Thompson, public services director for the City of High Point, says that Westside wastewater treatment plant will merely improve treatment processes for the already good quality water discharging from the facility. “We’re going to our new process — the biological nutrient removal process,” Thompson said. “That upgrade treats water much more effectively.” Thompson mentioned that the east side plant has already begun using the process and puts its discharge in Randleman Lake, a drinking reservoir. Clements added that such discharge — especially with the improved treatment process — will actually help Rich Fork Creek. “In low-flow conditions, it’s better to have the wastewater coming from High Point than no water,” Clements said. “Water no longer infiltrates at a rate that provides sufficient base flow under normal summer conditions. This wastewater being treated to the level that it’s being treated is actually providing a resource to this stream.”

BONDS From page 1 Sept. 14. Though applying for the bonds doesn’t lock the system into anything, the full $10 million would give the county a full $13 million to put towards building a new, much-needed middle school in the northern part of the county that the commission had included in its fiveyear plan. “I am personally committed to building that school because we’re very overcrowded up there,” said Chairman Dr.

Max Walser. “You’re not making any kind of commitment to anybody anywhere by applying for these bonds.” Middle schools typically cost between $15 and $24 million. Although the bond money — if the schools received the full amount requested — would only cover a portion of that, Assistant County Manager Zeb Hanner says that because the bonds come at zero interest the county would end up saving $300,000 a year over the life of the loan. “This is a God-send,” said Commissioner Billy Joe Kepley. “We’re going to have to build a school sooner or later. If we can do it with no interest — this is just a really good offer for us.”

Liberty Drive, Sunrise Avenue, Hasty School Road and Pilot School Road also are areas where the speed limit drops to 25 mph. “TPD is very proactive in ensuring our children are safe,” Maj. James Mills said. “The ongoing endeavor to reduce speeding and accidents in school districts is our primary concern. People just need to pay attention and use discretion.”

of the reasons is Unity Street is four lanes in that area, unlike Sunrise Avenue that sees very few citations for speeding. TPD issued a total of 31 citations for speeding in a school zone and 10 warnings from Aug. 25-27 — the first three days of school. “It generally takes a couple of days and people start noticing the school buses on the road,” said Wesley. “So far, its been pretty good. People are adhering to the posted limits. We’re just trying to emphasize safety and we’re making progress. We haven’t had a lot of instances regarding school zone speeding, but we’re still going to be out there, enforcing these limits.” There are several school zones throughout Thomasville that see

Happy Labor Day VIEWPOINT

WILL DURST Syndicated Columnist Poor Labor Day. Gets no respect. It’s the Rodney Dangerfield of celebrations. The runt of the holiday litter. Just hearing the name conjures up depressing images of a last plastic souvenir sports bottle of lemonade poured on the dying charcoal briquettes of summer. It’s the end of the bright light and the beginning of the darkness. Vacation is over and the fun has expired. White shoes are put back in the closet and storm windows taken out. Watermelons are replaced on the floor next to produce bins by pumpkins. Swimming pools get drained and ice cream trucks convoy back into their hibernatory garages. All the red, white and blue motifs give way to orange and black. The solstice is dead. Long live the autumnal equinox. As a kid, I was too busy running from the shadow of school’s return and the end of my freedom to pay much attention to the meaning of the holiday. And when I did, it made no sense. Honor work? Who would do that? Might as well set aside a day to venerate broccoli. I thought of work as a thing to be avoided, not celebrated. Chores squared. But then I entered the real world and desired things, like food and shelter and clothing and gasoline, which forced me into gainful employment. And it was surprisingly enjoyable. Not the getting up at 4 a.m. part, but the fruit of accomplishment deal -- yeah. Got my Social Security number at the age of 12. Held over 100 different jobs. Then in 1981, I was able to earn a living at my chosen craft. Making me an extremely lucky man. Without labor, we would still be nomads, boiling river water

to wash down our nightly meal of beans and mush and roots and moss. Getting way too friendly with the livestock. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. From the people who brought you the weekend, not to mention the 40-hour work week and the lunch hour and the smoke break and the potty run and the punch-clock dash. Our society’s love affair with the genetically blessed can get tiresome. The rich and the beautiful and the fast and the strong. The lucky sperm club. People who were in the right place at the right time, and most of those places were wombal. That’s why it’s important to have this one 24-hour period to honor ordinary Americans. Real folks who don’t think “work ethic” is a dirty word. Or a dirty two words. Or whatever. No, there’s no fireworks to watch or ugly birds to cook or chocolate-covered bunnies to steal marshmallows from. Just one Monday off for all those regular guys and gals trying to make ends meet; raising 2.3 kids while juggling a mortgage and trying to cover the monthly cable bill with at least one premium channel thrown in. One day to celebrate what it is that we do for a living by taking the day off from work. Paying tribute, not to some dead presidents or a religious fertility ritual or the valiant who have fallen defending democracy, but to the living. To us. The true American heroes. The ones who keep democracy alive and shaking and moving and growing. You and me. All right. All right. Fine. Mostly you. Happy Labor Day, everybody.

Rating the nation’s smile index VIEWPOINT

PETER FUNT Syndicated Columnist So, how was your summer? I just finished a threeweek trip, mostly by car, covering thousands of miles and sampling hundreds of opinions. I went to big cities -- LA, Chicago, Washington, New York and Boston -- and small towns -- from Lancaster, Calif., to Lenox, Mass. And what I found in my unscientific sample was that despite horrible economic conditions and political unrest, Americans remain remarkably resilient. Maybe I was influenced by late summer’s burst of perfect weather and resulting Kodachrome views -- from the 95th floor of the John Hancock building in Chicago looking out over a glistening Lake Michigan, to the lawn at Tanglewood in Lenox, as the Boston Symphony concluded its season with Beethoven’s rousing “Ode to Joy.” Perhaps it was the mercifully peaceful behavior of Glenn Beck’s throng in Washington which, considering the opinions unleashed, could have been much worse. Maybe it was President Obama going on TV to declare that the most nightmarish aspects of the fighting in Iraq seem to be behind us. Or maybe it was just that the ice cream at Handel’s landmark stand in Youngstown, Ohio, was so pleasing on an evening

when the breeze was warm and the mint chip sweet. With gas prices lower than last summer (although it’s hard to fathom why a gallon cost me $2.57 in Massachusetts and $3.19 in Connecticut), many Americans are on the road. In some spots the traffic is jammed, but often for good cause, since federal stimulus money is funding some 12,000 highway projects and creating construction jobs along the way. Still, nearly 15 million Americans are out of work, and many are hurting because of it. I saw a shopping plaza not far from Tanglewood that’s now 75 percent vacant. Even on bucolic Main Street in New Canaan, Conn., family-owned shops are closing at an alarming rate. Up and down the Salinas Valley in Central California, where the air is thick with dust, thousands of workers dot the fields, with scarves protecting their faces and hats blocking the sun, hunched over for hours to pick our lettuce and broccoli. They ride to and from the fields in old buses that look just like the vehicles used to transport prisoners to nearby Soledad prison. At least they’ve got jobs. At O’Toole’s in Chicago, diehard fans continued to cheer for their hapless Cubs, even as the manager, Lou Piniella, appeared on the TV screen in tears to say goodbye following a 16-5 loss to the Braves. Despite the recession, there were big crowds at the mall in Providence, R.I., with the wait for a table at the Cheesecake Factory running an hour or longer, as many people enjoyed an end-of-summer treat. At all these stops I used my own Smile Index to measure the mood of people I met. Most seemed resigned. There’s almost a palpable

sense that we’re all in this together, and it shows up in the way folks smile and say hello. Indeed, it was all on display Saturday morning at the Cafe on the Common in Mansfield, Mass., where the breakfast is terrific and the cheerful service is even better. It was the first week of school football, and the place was packed. But those seated at the window could look straight across the town green at families standing in the sun, waiting for a free meal at the food pantry run by a local church. A few miles up the road in Norton, a guy was standing at an intersection with a folding table and a large poster that read: “Stop to Impeach Obama.” I didn’t stop to talk, but I could see he wasn’t happy. That’s too bad, because America’s got a lot going for it, and President Obama isn’t part of the problem, he’s helping to provide the solutions. What I see is a nation that feels slightly safer, resigned to tough it out, and hoping we’re turning the corner. That same week, as the President returned from his own vacation, he got a look at the new rug in the Oval Office on which appear five memorable quotes from great Americans. One is from Teddy Roosevelt: “The welfare of each of us is dependent fundamentally upon the welfare of all of us.” And whether your vantage point is an exit on the Interstate, or standing on the White House rug, the vision is of renewed hope in America.

From page 1

‘The real challenge for the community going forward is job creation, which will help smooth over this economic recovery.’

FUTURE From page 1 uncomfortable situation, we’re still faring better than a lot of other communities. ” In 2009, Googe said seven new industries brought 506 jobs to the area and invested more than $197 million. Existing industries also expanded, adding close to 700 jobs while investing $10 million. The Sun Edison Solar Farm alone made a $207.9 million investment in the county. Googe feels Davidson County is still an attractive area to companies, both foreign and domestic, and expects to see more growth in the near future. The past decade was especially hard on manufacturing. Since 2000, average annual employment in manufacturing dropped by more than 10,000 people, leading to an unemployment rate that has nearly doubled over the last 10 years. “Our economy is primarily a manufacturing economy,” said Googe. “In the 80s, we had 50 percent

of our people employed in manufacturing. Now it’s down to about 25 percent. Manufacturing suffers quicker and recovers last. We have an awful lot of interest in the county and we continue to have that from domestic manufacturers and also foreign manufacturers. We feel the two things that are very attractive to companies looking at the southeast region of the United States is location and our workforce. We have a trained manufacturing workforce and that is very appealing to a lot companies. It’s something we take for granted here. If you go to other places around the world, that is a very valuable asset and we try to market that.” High unemployment also affects others areas of the economy. In 2000, more than 1,300 new homes were built in Davidson County, compared to 273 last year. During the same time, foreclosures are up 497 percent and the county is averaging about 77 foreclosures a month. “The key number to look at is wages,” Googe said. “From 2000 to 2003,

we lost $160 million worth of payroll. That’s devastating, but we built it back over the next three years and added $14 million to it. Just about the time we got our heads above water, it fell out again. I think we’ll certainly build it back again, but it will probably take another three to four years.” Googe also pointed out that the high school dropout rate in the three area school systems — Thomasville, Lexington and Davidson County — decreased last year and property tax revenues are up. Thomasville experienced the largest population expansion since 2000 with an increase of 35.5 percent. In other news: • David Powell was introduced as the new president and CEO of the Piedmont Triad Partnership, an economic development group. Powell, a former executive with Verizon and NetJets, outlined his plan on how to develop the region economically, saying “the road to economic success is always under construction.”

A Thomasville runner works for extra yards and an A.L. Brown defender tries to pull him down Friday night in Kannapolis.

Bulldogs roll past Wonders BY ELIOT DUKE Staff Writer KANNAPOLIS — Thomasville High School’s Keseasn Green ran the opening kickoff back for a touchdown a Kannapolis Memorial Stadium Friday night against the A.L. Brown Wonders. The Bulldogs defense took it from there. In its most complete game of the young season, THS moved the ball on offense, dominated defensively and played solid special teams in a 20-7 victory over the Wonders, marking the Bulldogs third straight road win to start the year. “This was a great team effort,” THS offensive coordinator and assistant coach Dickie Cline said. “We played tough and we played physical on both sides of the ball. We’re extremely pleased with the win. [The kickoff return] got momentum on our side and we sustained it the whole game.” A week after struggling against Mount Airy, Green sparked immediate life into the team with

‘We played tough and we played physical on both sides of the ball.’ — Dickie Cline Thomasville Assistant Coach his 85-yard kickoff return for a touchdown just 15 seconds into the game. Green escaped the Wonders initial wall and broke free into open field, outrunning defenders down the far sideline. “It felt really good,” said Green. “I wanted to get us good field position so we could run at them. Everybody played lights out. I was able to give the defense the lead and they knew what to do with it. Once we get in front we have to stay in front and match the other team’s intensity.” Still clinging to their early lead, the Bulldogs defense provided a big play late in the first quarter. On second and long, Wonders

quarterback Martel Campbell rolled right and pitched the ball to Xavier Stanback. Robert Davis and Tevin Davis read the play perfectly, disrupting the toss and causing a fumble. Jay Spires scooped up the loose ball at the A.L. Brown 42, giving THS great field position with 1:54 to go in the opening quarter. “We worked hard this week getting the game plan ready for their option,” linebacker James Boyd said. “When game time came, it was like practice. Their quarterback is their focal point but coach also told us that anyone on their offense was capable of making plays.” Not wanting to squander a prime scoring chance, head coach Allen Brown spent two time outs in a span of five seconds on third and 8 from the Wonders 23-yard line. The move paid off as Sam Nelson rolled to his left and found Shaquan Johnson open in the flat for a touchdown with three second left on the clock. The duo kept

September has finally arrived. As a boy, I greeted September with mixed emotion because, while the best time of the year begins this month, I had to return to school. While some would argue that getting old is a distinct disadvantage, and on many facets I would agree, being a bit of a codger can be sweet if you can manage some time to enjoy the fruits of your labor with that schoolboy dread far behind you. Right now, we still have hot weather that makes old men sweat and dogs pant, so today Larry and I are passing the hot part of the day in the office. My best friend, Billy Lagle, says that getting ready is half the fun, so I’d suggest spending the next hot afternoon in the comfort of air conditioning going through your surf fishing tackle box. In fact, you might want to get your stuff together and get down to the coast. Often the fish really turn on after a storm and the bite might well be on as you read this. There’s nothing more frustrating than being where the fish are without what you need to catch them so a pretrip check is always a good idea. I say tackle box but I haven’t used a traditional tackle box in years. Instead I put my

WEDNESDAY SOCCER Randleman @ E. Davidson 7 p.m. VOLLEYBALL E. Davidson @ Ledford 5:30 p.m.

GAME REPORT DEADLINES: Monday-Friday 9 p.m.

WALLBURG — The opening minute of Friday night’s game versus Southwest Guilford set a bad precedent for the Ledford Panthers. Braxton Daye foreshadowed the Panthers’ misfortune with a 50-yard return of the game’s initial kickoff to begin Southwest’s first drive deep in Ledford territory. A fumble by quarterback Airyn Willis inside the 5-yard line temporarily stalled the Cowboys’ promising drive, but on the following play, Panthers running back De Greene could not get out of the end zone and was taken down for a safety. Raymond Bridges fielded the ensuing free kick and rushed 70 yards down the sideline and into the end zone to give Southwest a 8-0 lead with 11:32 remaining in the first. The disastrous first series for Ledford gave the Cowboys the only points they would need, as they rolled to a decisive 36-3 victory and advanced to a 3-0 start. “I’m proud of the effort tonight of our kids,” Cowboys coach Scott Schwarzer said. “Defensively, offen-

BOX From page 7

stuff in the divided tray 3600 boxes and carry the boxes in a soft shoulder bag. My surf fishing bag is the smallest bag I have with only four boxes. Of course, what you put in your bag is greatly determined by where you’re going to fish. I like to fish the big water of Hatteras and Lookout and for that, I need heavy sinkers and big rigs. Starting with the tackle for bait fishing makes sense in surf fishing because most surf anglers fish bait until something gives them reason to break out the artificials. Of course, everyone needs extra line, snaps, sinker slides, pliers and a scale in their box but these should be in any tackle box. The rest of the stuff is specific to surf fishing. I carry Frog Tongue sinkers in 12-ounces to 4ounces for fishing when the current is strong. Unless you have a rod that will throw this kind of weight, there’s no need to load down your box but, in a pinch, most rods will throw an ounce or two more than their rated weight. I normally fish heavy water with 8ounces with my long distance rods. If things are really calm, I’ll go down to 6-ounces but these rods don’t really do well below that weight. My lighter sinkers from 4ounces down are regular pyramid configuration sinkers. For fishing the Carolina coast south of Lookout, a 6-ounce pyramid is about all you’ll ever need, with a 4-ounce being plenty most days. Rigs are another part of the bait fishing equation and they vary widely based on the species you target and the conditions you’re fishing. For bluefish and Spanish mackerel, a floater rig will out-fish a bottom rig two to one. For other species like sea mullet, flounder, spots, and toadfish, a bottom rig works best. I think both work equally well for sea-trout and puppy drum. Unlike many other surf zone fish, blues and Spanish don’t really scavenge the bottom. They are often much higher in the water column. I make all my own rigs. I’ve had several good bites when the rig came in without a fish but with a straightened snap. Most rigs are put together for low cost and I tie my own, not to save money but to have better rigs. I normally tie my rigs with a 6/0 drum hook on the bottom without a floater and a quality snap on the top with a floater. This allows me to fish on the bottom for puppies and drum and have a hook of the size I need a little further up to snag a blue or an occasional bottom fish. Sometimes, late in the season when there are stripers in the water, I’ll tie the rig with two big hooks and about 30� of leader between the two. I call this a hi/lo rig and it’s a great rig to use when stripers and big drum are around. I tie most of my rigs with 100 pound test and crimp most of my connections. If all this sounds to you like I’m obsessed with catching the bigger fish to the exclusion of smaller ones, you’re right. I’d rather catch a single 40� fish than forty 12� fish. I like the pull of a big fish in the surf.

SPORTS You need to tie your rigs up before you leave for the trip if possible. I tie mine and put them in zip-lock bags so I can rig up fast if I break off. There are specialty rigs I sometimes use and I keep materials in my line bag to allow me to tie any kind of rig I dream up for a special need. Every surf angler should have a smaller box with a variety of hooks to cover every use. My hook box contains hooks from 10/0 to 6. Match the hook size to the species and size of the fish targeted. Often, you can catch a big fish on a small hook and vice versa but sizing the hook to the fish works best. Finally, we come to artificials, the most fun kind of surf fishing when there are enough fish present. I only throw artificials when I have a reason. If I see birds working within casting range, I’ill always make a few casts. If I catch a few blues in fairly fast succession, I start throwing a spoon. If I see bait being blasted out of the water, I fish what I think is an appropriate artificial. In the surf, I like spoons best. Most saltwater fish that will hit an artificial have real teeth and soft plastics and plugs get destroyed in short order. If I have to destroy plugs and jigs to catch fish, I figure that’s just good for the plug makers but normally spoons cast better and work just as well. I like Hopkins and Stingsilvers and the many knockoffs. I really don’t think fish can tell the difference and, since I don’t get any money from the name brand guys, I’ll tie a two dollar lure on before a six dollar one. You should have a variety of colors of spoons as well as silver and gold, but if they’re really in there, I can never really tell which color is best. When they want a spoon, they’ll hit a can opener. Ad some grubs in varied colors for sea-trout, a

couple of heavy top-waters in case you really get lucky and you’ve got it covered. There’s nothing better than catching fish in the Carolina surf and it’s time to get ready. See you in the surf. In a shaded box if you have the room More on Hooks I use J hooks for almost all my fishing. The trend a few years ago was to circle hooks and, frankly, I don’t like them. I fish a lot for drum and about half of drum bites involve the line going slack from the fish picking up the bait and moving closer to the angler rather than away. When this happens, the angler normally winds up the slack and raises his rod until he feels the fish. If the fish is facing you and you take up the slack, you’ll pull the circle hook right out of his mouth. If you don’t believe this, cut a slit in a paper cup and pull it straight away from the rod. The hook will slip right out of the cup. Turn the slit away from the rod and the hook will grab every time. Circle hooks were made for unattended tackle. If a fish takes the bait and swims away they work well; they weren’t originally designed to handle hookups with the fish facing the angler. When I set more than one rod out in a sand spike at night, I often use circle hooks, otherwise, I feel like they’ll cost me fish. Attended rods aren’t likely to deep hook fish anyway.

LEDFORD From page 1 sively, what we were able to put together out there, I’m tickled to death. We share the wealth in this offense – with six guys carrying the football tonight – that says a lot about our offense.” Daye resumed his scoring duties in the second quarter when he took his second handoff of the game and motored

BULLDOGS From page 7 the drive alive three plays earlier, converting a key third and nine pass. THS added some first half insurance, stringing together a 13-play drive that ended with a 33-yard Lawson Hodges field goal. A.L. Brown had two minutes left in the first half to try and get on the scoreboard trailing 17-0, but the Bulldogs defense had none of it. Needing to make something happen offensively starting the second half, the Wonders got just the opposite. On second and 8 from his own 34, Campbell overthrew Dillon Robinson on the near sideline, where Davonte Gordon-Hunter picked off his second pass of the day. Gordon-Hunter got Campbell at the end of the first quarter with a beautiful over-the-shoulder catch. THS cashed in with a 27-yard Hodges field goal, stretching the lead to 20-0.

57 yards for a touchdown with 7:40 left until halftime. Aaron Fletcher’s 16-yard dash to pay dirt four minutes later gave Southwest a 22-3 edge at the break. “We’re a lot better football team than we showed tonight,” Ledford coach Chris Adams said. “We can come up with all the excuses in the world, but we’re not going to make them. I’ve got to do a better job as coach, we’ve got to do a better job as a staff and our kids are going to

come out and work hard Tuesday of next week.” The size and speed of the Cowboys defense made life miserable for Ledford as it tried to crawl back into the contest. Greene and the rest of the Panthers’ talented backfield were kept at bay throughout. Daye and Willis tacked on a pair of short touchdown runs, five and two yards respectively, in the second half to widen the margin. Ledford falls to 1-2 on the season.

“Coaches keep telling me to never get beat, so I didn’t.” Gordon-Hunter said. “I stayed on top and height doesn’t mean anything during the game. It’s all about playing with the biggest heart. We hung in there and got the win.” A.L. Brown finally cracked the scoring column late in the third quarter with a 12 play, 80yard drive, culminated by Campbell’s quarterback sneak from just outside the goal line with 2:15 left in the frame. Gordon-Hunter completed his hat trick with 8:11 left in the game, picking off Campbell for a third time, but the

Bulldogs couldn’t deliver the knockout blow. After driving inside the red zone, the offense stalled, leading to a THS field goal try from the Wonders’ 21. Tevin Jones blocked the attempt, putting the ball back in Campbell’s hands with 5:02 remaining. Campbell connected on two long passes to the Bulldogs 20-yard line, but Robert Davis stepped in front of another errant pass on fourth down, ending the scoring threat and any chances of a A.L. Brown comeback. The Bulldogs forced five turnovers in the game. Thoomasville travels to Albermarle next Friday night.

Racer’s work makes it fun for fans ON NASCAR

CATHY ELLIOTT Syndicated Columnist

When someone asks the front desk manager at my office how she’s doing she invariably answers, “Fine. I hope you are, too.” Let’s go ahead and establish one thing up front so we don’t have to come back and argue about it later. I have worked in Darlington, S.C. in various capacities for 15 years. I love Darlington Raceway, and I will always consider the former Southern 500 Labor Day weekend as one of NASCAR’s most-respected traditions. It’s right up there with the green courts of major tennis tournaments and knicker-wearing gents on the golf courses of the PGA. These things are dear to us, deeply ingrained in our sports memories and psyches. But for the most part they are gone now, replaced by long pants, the blue-court battleground of the U.S. Open and yes, Labor Day weekend NASCAR racing at Atlanta Motor Speedway. The atmosphere surrounding the initial announcement in June 2003 that Darlington would host its final Labor Day weekend event that year was as gloomy as the set of a Tim Burton film. Some fans reacted the way they would upon suddenly being told their parents were breaking up after 50 years of marriage. We weren’t simply surprised; we took it personally. Mom stuck around and the annual Mother’s

Day race weekend at Darlington has gone on to become one of the most popular stops on the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series schedule. Dad headed out to California for a while to ‘find himself ’ before eventually heading back home. Atlanta Motor Speedway welcomed Labor Day weekend racing like the prodigal son, dressing him up in fancy trappings and generally making a very big deal about his new residence in town. You can probably even find fatted calf on the concession stand menu if you look hard enough. AMS knows how to throw a party. Still, every year around this time we hear that inevitable grousing about the way things were. It certainly would be a lot more productive, not to mention more fun, to focus on the way things are. Atlanta is a terrific location for a Labor Day weekend, for a number of reasons. Its inland location means the track isn’t plagued by the threat of impending hurricanes, a constant issue at Darlington. He turned northward and dropped by North Carolina’s Outer Banks for a visit, but just this week Hurricane Earl threatened the East Coast. That could easily have affected South Carolina. Atlanta is a ‘destination’ city, with plenty for those visiting on a holiday to do and see and eat. There’s plenty of room for everyone. But when you get right down to it, the best reason to host a Labor Day weekend race at Atlanta is the quality of action on the track. The movie masterpiece “Gone With the Wind” taught us three important things — that tomorrow is another day, that raw radishes don’t sit well on an empty stomach ... and if you’re looking for a battle royale, Atlanta

is the place to find it. In 50 years of NASCAR Sprint Cup Series racing, the track has crowned an amazing 42 different winners, proving you just never know what might happen. Atlanta Motor Speedway has been the site of some of racing’s most famous feuds and finishes. This is the place where Dale Earnhardt spanked Bobby Labonte by .010 seconds to claim his ninth win at the track. Richard Petty ran his final Cup Series race in Atlanta, and Jeff Gordon ran his first. Just two weeks after Earnhardt’s death at Daytona in 2001, Kevin Harvick renewed the spirit of his team by taking his first Cup Series checkered flag, at Atlanta. The most recent AMS buzz, of course, centered around Carl Edwards and Brad Keselowski in March. Both drivers will be competing in the NASCAR Nationwide Series Great Clips 300 as well as the Emory Healthcare 500 at AMS, turning the weekend into something resembling an ad for Doublemint gum — “Double your pleasure; double your trouble.” Or something like that. It should double your interest. NASCAR fans seem to have a very specific wish list where Labor Day weekend is concerned. We want nice weather and a Southern location. We want to see a great race offering close competition and the ever-present possibility of controversy. We want to have a memorable experience; we want to

have fun. We want an annual racing tradition at a place with many decades-worth of character, history, and respect. The Atlanta Motor Speedway offers us all these things, and more. I’m fine with that. I hope you are, too.

Rebooting the system BY DOUG CREAMER Guest Columnist Sometime earlier this year, I bought a large external hard drive so I could backup my data in case my computer’s hard drive failed. I backed up all the critical data like my columns, my website, pictures, and other things I had written at the beginning of summer. Once I got the data saved, I put the external hard drive away for safekeeping. I followed the Boy Scout motto — I was prepared. Last Friday, I went online with my computer and noticed it was running a bit slow. We have had some problems with our router so I thought I just needed to reset it and things would be fine. I proceeded to reset the router but still found my computer to be running slow. I decided that some program was running in the background and I needed to shut down the computer in order to stop it. That’s when it happened. I turned the computer back on and nothing happened. The familiar sound of the fan kicked on, but there was no action from the hard drive. I waited … and waited. Finally, my computer told me what I didn’t want to hear; my hard drive had failed. While I was upset about losing my hard drive, I knew most of my data was safely stored on the backup system. I did lose all the work I have done since the backup, but I still have hope that I will be able to recover it. I’ve talked to several people who have given me some interesting ideas, including freezing the hard drive. I

have also checked with several businesses who have offered to help me recover my data, for a fee, naturally. I am not panicked or worried about what will happen. I am hoping things will work themselves out soon. In the meantime, I have purchased a new hard drive and reloaded all the programs and am up and running once again. It took a while to reload all the programs, but I worked on it while I was doing some other things over the weekend. Computers can be fun when they are working right and a pain when things go wrong. Life can be a lot like that. When things are going well, there are no worries. If things are going really well, we have the tendency to coast along, especially spiritually. There is no room for coasting spiritually. We have to keep up our guard because it is easy to backslide or stumble and end up getting ourselves in a mess. So what do we do if we find that our spiritual lives are going in the wrong direction? We have to go through a spiritual reboot. We have to be reborn. The Bible teaches us that the old man with his ways is gone and that God gives us a new heart and mind. We can’t do it on our own or earn God’s favor by our good deeds. The Bible also teaches that we are responsible for renewing our minds through reading the Bible. To reboot our spiritual lives we have to receive the grace of God. His grace and mercy allows us to receive what we do

not deserve and to not receive what we really deserve. With renewed minds and hearts we can begin to see ourselves the way God sees us, as His beloved children. As His children we can progress from hearing about God to actually knowing Him in a personal way. God’s plan from the beginning has been that we would know Him and become His friend. Our sin got in the way, thus the need to reboot spiritually. Once we have accepted the wonderful work that only He can do in our lives, the path to friendship with the creator of the universe is open to us. Sadly, many people will never discover the path to friendship with God because they cannot admit their need for His grace and mercy, their need to be spiritually rebooted. I want to encourage you to reboot your spiritual lives. No matter how long we have walked with the Lord, we all need to continually receive His grace and mercy so we can grow and maintain our spiritual lives. It’s amazing that God has provided a way and paid the price for us to have rich spiritual lives. The journey isn’t easy, but you will never be alone and the reward is an eternity with God. It all begins when we allow God to push the reboot button in our hearts. Doug Creamer teaches Marketing at East Davidson High School.
