two counts of attempted first degree murder, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, first degree burglary and impersonating a police officer. Gordon, and his son, Dustin Gray Gordon, were involved in an altercation with two men who were found by deputies suffering from gunshot and stab wounds at 5985 Jim Pierce Road in Trinity.
“If someone sees this man, do not app r o a c h him, call 911,” RCSO Lt. Barry H a z e l t o n C. Gordon said. “I consider him armed and dangerous.” Davie County police arrested Dustin Gray Gordon, 21, of 1044 Har-
vest Drive, at his job on Monday and transferred him to the Randolph County D. Gordon Jail where he facing the same charges as his father. Dustin Gordon was issued a $250,000 secured bond and is scheduled to

Man arrested in weekend stabbing
EDC addresses economic future of county
BY ELIOT DUKE Staff Writer
A Thomasville man was arrested early Sunday morning for stabbing another man at a party. Thomasville Police arrested Jimmy Ray Routh Jr., 21, of 406 Sullivan St., and charged him with second degree attempted murder for stabbing Ian Michael Smith, of Archdale. The two men were attending a get-together at 10 E. Sunrise Ave. Saturday night when a disagreement happened, according to TPD Sgt. Les Rickard. Smith was found suffering from multiple stab wounds to his upper body and had to be transported to Wake forest Baptist Hospital, where he was treated and later released. “There was a argument that led to a physical confrontation,” Rickard said. “It ended with [Smith] suffering from multiple stab wounds throughout his body.” Due to the circumstances of the assault, Routh

One of Davidson County’s greatest assets is its skilled manufacturing workforce, says Steve Googe, executive director of the Davidson County Economic Development Commission. Despite recent hard-hitting job losses in the industry, he believes that in the next couple of years, this workforce will be able to return to what it does best. “We are a manufacturing community,” Googe said. “During these types of downturns, manufacturing is hit the hardest and the longest, but when it comes back, it always comes back fastest. Probably not this year, and maybe not until the latter part of next year, we expect to see some of these things coming back.” Googe presented the EDC’s economic development report on Tuesday to about 50 community leaders at Sapona Country

Commissioners approve new fire district maps BY KARISSA MINN Staff Writer

The Davidson County Board of Commissioners has approved new maps of the county’s fire service districts increasing their size from five to six miles, allowing more residents to enjoy lower insurance premiums and pay taxes to the same fire departments that serve them. The public hearing about the fire districts from the board’s Aug. 11 meeting was continued on Tuesday, to allow time for the board to review last-minute adjustments to the maps. Paul Jarrett, Davidson County assistant fire marshal, said that on further review, only one of the corrections was needed. “We were able to determine through GPS coordination that the maps were in fact good,” Jarrett said. Nearly two years ago, the office of the state fire marshal found inconsistencies in maps of the county’s rural fire protection

Plans for Career Technical Academy progressing BY LISA WALL Editor
LEXINGTON — Davidson County Board of Education was updated on the progress on the proposed Career Technical Academy during Tuesday night’s monthly meeting. Ben Ross, Executive Director of Davidson Vision, and Barry Sink of the Piedmont Triad Partnership, informed the board of the headway made in developing the school, which is aimed at preparing chil-
dren for the work place of the future. “We need to be sure the pathways or curriculum we are teaching in career technical education are going to yield students five years from now who are fully equipped to deal with the challenges they are going to face in this changing economy,” Ross said. In 2005, after years of watching jobs in the manufacturing sector being lost, Davidson County Schools officials identified a need for training students for
jobs of the future. Recognizing that this is an issue facing more than just Davidson County, a committee was formed bringing on board officials and educators from four different counties — Davidson, Davie, Surry and Yadkin — along with eight school systems and two community colleges, to help bring the concept into fruition. This is the first such project in the state. “We concentrated on five industrial clusters that are most prevalent in the

through a $75,000 grant from Piedmont Triad Partnership. As progress on the school develops, officials look to seek funds from the American Recovery and Stimulus Package. Also during the meeting, Dr. Tony Peele, associate superintendent of human resources and administration, gave an update on hiring for the 2009-10 school year. According to Peele, the school system lost 58 positions since May of 2009 to help with the state’s call for a return of $3.1 mil-
MAPS From page 1 and fire insurance districts. Two districts were providing service to areas farther than the 5-mile limit, and there were several errors of overlapping or inadequate coverage areas. In June, commissioners decided to switch from rural fire protection districts to fire service districts, making it easier to alter the corresponding tax districts to reflect boundary changes. To draw the new boundaries, the county’s fire marshal office used GIS mapping instead of relying solely on natural landmarks. Some local citizens told commissioners that they were not happy with the new maps because they did not do anything to improve service. Robert Beeson said that he lives three-tenths of a mile from the Gumtree Fire Department, but he is served by the much farther Midway Fire Department. “I can stand in my backyard and see Gumtree Fire Department,” Beeson said. “I am in the Midway Fire District. Can somebody explain to me how they can give me service, when they are five miles away, better than the fire department that is three-tenths of a mile away?”
STABBING From page A5 is facing more serious charges, Rickard said. “The nature of the wounds, the incident and the assault were all factors in him being charged with attempted murder,” Rickard said. By the time police ar-
lion in funding. Superintendent Dr. Fred Mock noted that without the $5 million in stimulus funds for non-instructional support, the school system would be operating with more than $8 million less than in previous years. “Is there a stimulus package for next year?” Mock questioned. “If it’s not, there will be many tough decisions to make for the 2010-11 and 2011-12 school years.” Editor Lisa Wall can be reached at 888-3590, or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Donna Willard, a retired member of the Gumtree department, displayed a petition with more than 50 signatures of community members who wanted to change their fire district from Midway to Gumtree. She said that they have experienced slow response times from Midway, when even a minute or two is critical in an emergency situation. Midway Fire Chief Mike Craft said that response time is determined by more than just location — call volume and available staff also affect it. Even if a department is a short distance away from a structure “as the crow flies,” there may not be a fast or direct way for fire trucks to get there. Commissioners assured those who spoke that they heard their concerns, but could not alter the maps easily or quickly to address them all. First, they needed to get the tax districts in line with the insurance districts — which already have been changed — and correct the errors in the previous maps. “Tonight, to me, is just the first step of an ongoing process,” Don Truell said. “The first thing we’ve got to do is take that big step and try to coincide all of these fire district lines.” Commissioner Billy Joe Kepley cast the sole dissenting vote, saying that the county needed to consider response time, not just distance, in the creation of its fire service districts.

EDC changes policy on business incentives BY ELIOT DUKE Staff Writer WALLBURG — Steve Googe, Director of the Davidson County Economic Development Commission, paid Wallburg a visit Tuesday night at the monthly town council meeting to discuss a new plan that he hopes will spur growth in the area. In a closed session, Googe told council members the EDC is considering changing guidelines that will make the county more business friendly when it comes to offering incentives. Under existing guidelines, the EDC primarily focuses on incentives for companies that invest at least $1 million toward a project. If Googe’s proposal goes through, new or existing businesses will be eligible for incentives with an investment of at least $50,000, making Davidson County a more viable option to prospective companies. “What we’re saying to a company that may consider moving here is that if you’re a small business and you’re going to invest less than $1 million, last year we wouldn’t have given you the time of day,” Googe said. “We would’ve helped find a site, but as far as incentives, we wouldn’t be interested in participating. With this, we will participate with you as long as you invest $50,000 or more. We think it will at least give us an opportunity to be noticed by some of the folks who ordinarily wouldn’t pay us any attention.” Googe said the new format will lessen the loopholes a company has to jump through, and the
visit to Wallburg was part of his effort to get smaller communities on board who may not have known what their options are when it comes to attracting new businesses. “I am the original hoop jumper,” said Googe. “A lot of times in what I do, I’ll go talk to one group and they’ll say yes we’ll be supportive of that idea. I’ll go to another and they’ll say they’re not interested. What we’re asking them to do is at least buy into the concept so we have a unified front and we can market the county equally in all areas.” In other news: • Council members presented its 2009 Business of the Year Award to NewBridge Bank located at 10335 N.C. Highway 109. “We’re very proud to be part of this community,” Branch Manager Rick Byrd said. “It’s a pleasure being here and we appre-
ciate all the support we get from the community. It’s a great partnership.” • Council members passed a zoning ordinance revision that allows a homeowner to determine where their street frontage should be located. Planning and Zoning Director Dean Coe said a majority of people prefer to place their building or house towards the front of their lot. This change makes its easier for landowners to meet established building offsets and lessen government restrictions. • Conceptual drawings for the new town hall will be available later this month, according to Davidson County Purchasing Director Dwayne Childress, who was brought in to help with the construction. Childress said the architect has laid out plans for office layout, the building of the land, spatial relationships and the parking lot.

FOCUS Fleming receives Eagle Scout Award How to have a killer garage sale TIMES STAFF REPORT
MARY HUNT Syndicated Columnist
Jacob Patrick Fleming, 17, of Thomasville, was recently honored with his Eagle Scout Award.
EQ points the way TaylorMade
MARILYN TAYLOR Business Columnist
On Tuesday, Sept. 8, 2009, President Obama addressed the nationâ€™s school children through a televised speech delivered during the school day. His apolitical message was to use what you have to discover who you are and what you would like to be, and then work hard to become that person. His personal story may have resonated with those who know they have strikes against them or some difficulties ahead. I guess that would be, uh, everyone. Also implicit within his speech was the idea that we donâ€™t all have the same gifts, but we are all gifted in unique ways. This is an important tenet of personal responsibility. Each individual has to see herself as gifted or â€œableâ€? in order to be willing to put forth effort. The â€œYes, We Canâ€? premise of the campaign, (which incidentally, proved true in this case) holds here for every child in America. In diverse ways, we can work hard, achieve and contribute something to the greater good. While a strong IQ score may provide a window for academic achievement, we know that it is
no guarantee for success. The old fashioned qualities of early rising, (The early bird gets the worm), hard work (Hard work never killed anyone), and personal honesty (If you donâ€™t know â€” ask) were espoused by Obama as essential in this new fashioned economy. All children can develop them, particularly with help from teachers, mentors and family. With encouragement from the highest office, children heard the message to be persistent, overcome their circumstances, and make a difference in the world. Letâ€™s review some of the points from todayâ€™s lesson: Explore and discover who you are. Work hard to develop your skills, talents and abilities. Donâ€™t let failures stop you. Does any of this sound like â€œself awareness?â€? What about â€œself mastery?â€? How about â€œself motivation?â€? Yes, the first three pillars of EQ (Emotional Intelligence) that were introduced in last weekâ€™s column resound loudly here. No question that emotional intelligence competencies play a big role in school and workplace success. Was this a lesson for the younger generation? When we participate in new learning activities, exercises, or even field trips, we can become

Respect and responsibility VIEWPOINT
SUSAN ESTRICH Syndicated Columnist
The gifted woman who headed my children’s elementary school, Reveta Bowers, always said that teaching kids values was as important as teaching them skills. Maybe more, I have come to believe, as my children got older. Facts are easily forgotten; what isn’t is the determination you show in learning them, the responsibility you take in trying. The values we teach our children, at home, at school, at our places of worship, are what will hopefully stand them in good stead as the challenges get bigger and harder. Learning to work hard, get along with others, accept failure, redouble your effort — that’s what school is about, as much as sine and cosine; learning to accept responsibility and show respect is critical to every other lesson. It should come as no surprise to anyone that these are the things the president talked about in his address to the nation’s school children Tuesday. There was no partisanship in the speech, nor was there any reason to expect there would be. There was no call to pass a government option for health care or support gay marriage or grow up and register Democrat. Even some of the president’s harshest critics admitted, after the fact, that the speech was entirely appropriate and inspirational. So why did they make such a fuss beforehand? Why have we been “treated” to days of conservatives clamoring that the president
had no business addressing the nation’s schoolchildren on the first day of school? How is it that conservatives have allowed their own antipathy for the president to subvert the values we should be teaching our children? Take respect for the presidency. I would have thought that was a very conservative value. As a matter of fact, I can’t tell you how many times I heard conservatives attacking liberals for not showing respect for President George W. Bush, and rightly so. So why not this president? Last week, Jim Greer, the chairman of the Florida Republican Party, attacked the president’s planned speech, accusing the president of trying to “indoctrinate America’s children to his socialist agenda.” Today, after he read the speech, he admitted that it was a “good speech” and speculated that maybe the president changed it because of him. Thank you, Mr. Chairman. Now what is the lesson you’ve taught America’s children? Show no respect for the president. Assume the worst. Do no wait for facts. Attack first, verify later. Go for the jugular. Not educate but “indoctrinate.” Not Democratic but “socialist.” When you turn out to be wrong, don’t admit it. Don’t apologize. Instead, take credit. Even if you have absolutely no facts to suggest that your smears had anything to do with the speech, say it’s because of you that it was a good speech. Got that: First you attack, smear and lie; then you take credit for the fact that what never was going to happen didn’t happen. Conservative? Not in my book.

A free press is an ugly press VIEWPOINT
DAVID HARSANYI Syndicated Columnist Why did The Associated Press — and newspapers across the country — run the controversial and disturbing images of an American Marine dying in Afghanistan? The AP said it was “to make public an image that conveys the grimness of war and the sacrifice of young men and women fighting it.” It succeeded. Fortunately, we are not a nation of trembling children powerless to discern between news and exploitation. And it is, despite the anger surrounding the AP’s decision, the job of the press to offer citizens a glimpse — albeit slight, in this case — of the war they cover. When photographer Julie Jacobson was patrolling with a Marine unit that came under attack in southern Afghanistan, 21-year-old Lance Cpl. Joshua Bernard was hit with a rocket-propelled grenade and died of his injuries. Embedded, Jacobson had photos of the unit prior to the attacks, of Bernard’s death, of the evacuation and of the memorial service Bernard’s fellow Marines held for him after his death. She did her job admirably. Yet Sarah Palin, echoing
the blistering condemnation of some conservatives and others, called the move a “heartless and selfish decision to turn its back on the wishes of a grieving family in order to exploit the tragic death of a true American hero.” U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates wrote a “scathing” letter to Tom Curley, president and CEO of the AP, bemoaning his “lack of compassion and common sense” and “judgment and common decency” for defying “the family’s wishes.” When looking at the photo series, “Death of a Marine,” I felt a heightened respect for the gravity of war. The pictures unquestionably added humanity and context to Bernard’s death. Now, if I could recall a wanton penchant of the press to run photos of dead Marines, my reaction might have been very different. It is also conceivable, of course, that I’m a callous journalist, willing to set aside all decency to quench my baser voyeuristic instincts. There is an undeniable emotional component to these pictures that can’t be disregarded. It is unfathomable to imagine the anguish the Bernard family must feel. Yet the awful reality remains. As cruel as it sounds, those concerns should not guide the journalist’s decision-making process; the press can’t be solely beholden to notions of decency or compassion — subjective, as they are in most cases — when it has a duty to follow a story wherever it goes. Whether the mainstream press has abdicated this obligation in certain circumstances is a matter of useful
discussion (unquestionably, the AP’s cowardly refusal to distribute the Muhammad cartoons in 2006 for fear of upsetting some Muslims was a perfect example of this surrender), but trying to limit the media’s capacity to cover war is no way to make it more accountable. It was only recently that the Pentagon finally rescinded the misguided restriction on the media’s ability to photograph military caskets, overturning the ban instituted by President George H.W. Bush at the time of the Gulf War. Our delicate constitutions can handle the debate over war. Obviously — at the risk of dropping a massive cliche on readers — the troops exist to defend the First Amendment and things like it, as ugly as they may find the results. There is now some question as to whether the agreement with the AP stipulated next-of-kin permission to publish pictures of deceased or wounded military personnel. That issue should be investigated. But on the debate over the substance of these pictures, the press has one overriding question to ask: Do the photos help citizens better understand the story of the war in Afghanistan? Obviously, they do. David Harsanyi is a columnist at The Denver Post and the author of “Nanny State.” Visit his Web site at www.DavidHarsanyi.com.

Club, using charts and graphs to illustrate various trends. The county maintained its 2007 ranking of 14th in the state for population, with an estimated population of 158,166, and all three school systems had increases in enrollment. Property tax revenue, which makes up 47 percent of the county’s total revenue, increased for the second year in a row by $11.3 million. Between 2000 and 2008, the county’s tax revenues increased by $26.9 million, or 67.33 percent. The county’s labor force grew from 2004 to 2007, then declined by 2,764 in 2008. Unemployment rates over the past decade were as low as 3.3 percent in 2000 and as high as 7.3 percent in 2008. The county ranked seventh in the state last year for the number of jobs announced, with four new industries bringing in 115 jobs and 71 existing industries adding 14,48 workers. “It doesn’t help to be unemployed and see that, but we at least know that what we’re doing is the right thing,” Googe said. The total number of new single-family homes constructed was cut in half in 2008 compared to 2007, from 876 to 470. Residential home sales showed a less drastic drop, from 2,100 to 2,045. From 1998 to 2008, foreclosures have increased by 696, or 436 percent, giving Davidson County a rank of 14th in the state for the number of foreclosures last year. The county currently averages about 74 foreclosures a month. Also speaking was Dale Moorefield, deputy director for the Davidson County Department of Social Services, who said that there is increased demand for the agency’s economic services programs. Moorefield said that since 2002, there has been a 142 percent increase in the number of people receiving food and nutrition services, also known as food stamps. In the past two years, the amount of benefits paid though this program has gone up by 49 percent, from $1.5 million as of July 2007 to $2.9 million as of July 2009. The number of people receiving Medicaid benefits also has risen by 86 percent from 2000 through 2009. “Most of it has to do with the fact that more people are participating in the programs than ever before,” Moorefield said. Pat Hillard, manager of the Employment Security Commission office in Lexington, spoke about the challenges her agency has faced during this recession. She said that by the end of August, the North Carolina ESC borrowed $900 million from the federal government to pay unemployment benefits. They continue to borrow at a rate of $60 million a week. The county unemployment rate has doubled since 2007 to a current rate of 13.5 percent. A number of large layoffs caused the increase, but Hillard said that new employers like Atrium Windows and ASCO in Welcome are bringing a significant number of jobs back to the county. Others are rehiring at a slow but steady pace. “We’re not seeing large numbers as we saw jobs going, but we are starting to see employers rehire,” Hillard said. “We are starting to see people getting replaced, and that, to me, is a good sign.”

Tough loss to take
DCCC volleyball lets a win get away to Wake Tech. See Story Below
Dog ﬁght set for Friday night BY ZACH KEPLEY
WEEK 4 SCHEDULE
CALENDAR TODAY VOLLEYBALL Guilford Tech @ DCCC 6 p.m. VOLLEYBALL Ledford @ N. Davidson 5:30 p.m. GOLF Ledford @ No. Guilford 4 p.m.
Thomasville head coach Allen Brown is not about to start hitting the panic button, and for good reason. Yes, the Bulldogs are 1-2 to start the season and yes, another loss is possible this week against Albemarle. But the way Brown sees it, the teams they are losing to will be state title contenders at season’s end, and he hopes the experience learned through the grueling nonconference schedule will result in positive things to come when conference play rolls around. He just hopes his players will hang in there and understand they can be a great football team. “We are getting better here and there, but the big obstacle to overcome is the discouragement that goes with getting beat and the lack of confidence that comes with that,” Brown said. Last week against Kannapolis Brown,
Albemarle Bulldogs @ Thomasville Bulldogs Cushwa Stadium 7:30 p.m. E. Davidson Golden Eagles @ SW Randolph Cougars SW Randolph HS 7:30 p.m. Thomasville was in control at halftime with a 28-14 lead. Twenty-four minutes later, the clock struck zero and the Wonders walked out with a 35-28 win. The breakdown had a lot to do with a tiring defense, but it was the lack of offensive production Brown was miffed about. “When we need offense, we aren’t getting it,” Brown said. “That is a sign of a team that is young and doesn’t know how to finish a game. Our running backs are working themselves to death and playing over their heads because we are not blocking people
the way we need to. We are making so many mistakes and it is just sad. The kids are trying and the coaches are trying, but we are not executing assignments.” A complete 360 will need to be done before Friday night as the 3-0 Albemarle Bulldogs come strutting into town. Albemarle has yielded only seven points through three games this year, and are hungry to get revenge after the defeat last fall. They have the type of offense that can wear defenses down by the second half with a rushing attack mixed with just enough pass. Running backs Rusty Parks and A.J. Little have combined for 730 rushing yards, albeit against lower quality teams. Quarterback Nate Dunlap has not been called on to pass much attempting only 15 passes, but he has been quite efficient completing eight of those for 176 yards and four touchdowns. “They can score handing it off and throw-

set points in hand leading 24-22, but never put another mark on the board with three errors to close. Leonard had her spike go into the net to tie it at 24, then Katie Watkins hit long and Leonard could not come up with the handle to give the set away. “I told them after that first game we have a team of superstars that are not playing as one,” Hammond said. “We need to get back to the basics and playing fundamental volleyball.” They listened, blistering the ball and blocking shots to win 25-16 in game two. The win in the third game put them one step away from defeating the Division I team, but errors would be their downfall. DCCC took what appeared to be a 8-5 lead as Whitley Saintsing stuffed a Wake Tech spike, but the Storm were ruled to have hit out of order, sending the point the other way. Trailing 21-20, two bad serves by Davidson gave Tech some breath-
The Golden Eagles of East Davidson will try to end their two-game losing streak as they travel to battle the Southwestern Randolph Cougars this Friday night. “It is going to be a tough football g a m e , they are a real p hy s i c a l team,” said Eagles head c o a c h B r y a n Lingerfelt Lingerfelt. East (1-2) lost against a formidable North Davidson squad last week, but are showing signs of improvement since last season. They held the Black Knights to fewer points and also managed to avoid being shutout. “It is going to be just like the North Davidson game and we are going to see if we have improved since that one,” said Lingerfelt. “The things that we need to correct can hopefully be corrected this week going into this game. “Southwestern (Randolph) has got a lot of returners on their offensive and defensive lines which will pose us a challenge against the style of play that we try to have,” Lingerfelt said. The young Eagle team will have to be ready for the Cougars experience and they will also have to step up and fill a crucial hole in their defense. “We lost our inside linebacker Dylan Robinson during the North game. He injured his knee and we don’t know how long he will be out,” said the Eagles coach. They are scrambling around to try and replace him and hope that Nathan Bundy, who plays inside on the JV can come up and make an impact by filling that void. Southwestern Randolph (2-1) is off to a good

Wake Tech’s Brittany Rasmussen sends a kill over the arms of Davidson’s Jessica Flynn (left) and Katie Watkins in the first set of Tuesday’s match won by the visiting Eagles. BY ZACH KEPLEY Sports Editor LEXINGTON — For the second consecutive home game, Davidson County Community College had to wait for its opponent to arrive Tuesday evening at Brinkley Gym. Head coach Kevin Hammond is still awaiting the arrival of his highly touted recruiting class. Wake Tech overcame a 2-1 deficit to steal a win in five sets, 26-24, 16-25, 23-25, 26-24, 15-12, as the Storm could not overcome an injury to one of its hard hitters, and the Eagles devised the perfect plan to stop the power attack of DCCC. Outside hitter Lauren Leonard went down with an ankle sprain in the third set with DCCC up 11-7. The Storm held on to win the set and go up 2-1, but the loss of Leonard on the outside took its toll as the Eagles won the final two games to beat Davidson for the second time this season. “You count on key players and you build your offense around certain people,” Hammond said.

Storm outside hitter Logan Ballue hammers a kill down the line past Lauren Wall of Wake Tech. “Lauren has power in the left hand and when it is gone you have to go to the well and dig somewhere else. Our biggest problem, though, was we would lose momentum just as fast as we got it tonight, and that
is something we need to work on as a team.” The match could have easily ended in straight sets in favor of DCCC, but a letdown by the Storm allowed Wake Tech to jump ahead 1-0. DCCC (2-3) had two

AREA SPORTS BRIEFS
From page 7 ing the ball,” said Brown. “Watching film of them we have not seen their punt formation and we have not seen a fumble, so that means they are scoring every time they get the ball. I am highly impressed with their efficiency in all areas.” Quin Riley has emerged as a quality option for Thomasville at tailback, rushing for 104 yards last week against Brown. Riley, Kesean Green and fullback Lawrence Thomas have given their all to compensate for the missed blocking assignments, and could have big games if the lineman and other offensive players can execute. Sam Nelson had a tough role to fill at the quarterback position and has competed fairly well. He has passed for 360 yards in three games, and has had much success finding his favorite target Brandon Lucas, who is up over 260 yards receiving. Brown had a tough time remembering the last time a Thomasville team lost three games in a row, and would prefer not to let it happen again. “It has been since the early 90s or somewhere around there last time we lost three straight, and I was getting sympathy cards from everywhere,” he joked. Both THS and AHS have won at least three state titles this decade, and have become fierce rivals over the years. But Brown hardly considers this to be a rivalry game. “Our biggest rival right now is Central Davidson, because it is the first conference game we have this season,” said Brown. “We are trying to survive all of this and get on to the one that really matters for us.” Sports Editor Zach Kepley can be reached at 888-3631, or at firstname.lastname@example.org.

NASCAR Family Tree: The lineage of No. 5 NASCARMEDIA.COM DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Terry Labonte drove the No. 5 Kellogg’s Chevrolet to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship in 1996 for Hendrick Motorsports. It was a somewhat surprising performance by a highly respected veteran who many considered past his prime. Sound familiar? Fastforward to the 2009 season and you’ll find Mark Martin, 50 years young and in the thick of championship contention after coming out of “semiretirement” to join the Hendrick organization. He’s taken the No. 5
Kello gg’s/CARQUEST Chevrolet to Victory Lane four times this year and is 12th in the series standings coming into Saturday night’s race at Bristol Motor Speedway. Clearly, it’s a good time to drive the No. 5 — again. Martin has returned the number and, of course himself, to prominence. In the process, he has joined an illustrious list of No. 5 drivers, a list that began back in 1949, the first season for NASCAR’s Strictly Stock Division, the forerunner of today’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. That season, Felix Wilkes, Frank Mundy and Ray Erickson all drove “5”

Cronkite was a racer NASCARMEDIA.COM Walter Cronkite, known world-wide as a newsman extraordinaire, had another kind of notoriety that not everyone is aware of; he was also a racer of note. A sports car aficionado, he co-drove winning cars for Art Riley Motors three times at Lime Rock Park — in 1957, ’58 and ’61. He competed in the 12 Hours of Sebring, in ‘59, finishing 40th in a Lancia, co-driving with fellows named Peter Baumberger and Walter
Rohlfs. And in ‘59, his skill sets merged. During a practice session, he was right behind a driver who crashed and died in an accident just short of Sebring’s infamous hairpin. Cronkite was first on the scene and took on the task of calling the driver’s family with a firsthand report, followed by heartfelt condolences. The driver’s wife fondly recalls Cronkite’s professional, yet comforting style on that phone call, to this day. Cronkite served as the
official announcer at Sebring for a number of years. He had crossover appeal, as well in the world of auto racing. He was the grand marshal for the 1959 Firecracker 250 — Daytona International Speedway’s first summer event, in the track’s first year of operation. He also drove the pace car at Daytona International Speedway, for the 1962 Daytona 500. He was a friend of NASCAR founder Bill France Sr. and other NASCAR stars through the years.

His 1609 Voyage
Henry’s Hudson Henry Hudson made four voyages in search of a way to the Far East from Europe.
Can you imagine yourself as a young Native American boy or girl? You live on the East Coast of the United States in the early 1600s. Your family is part of a tribe called the Mohicans. For food, your family catches fish and birds. You grow vegetables and hunt for nuts and fruits. Sometimes you trade items with other tribes. Members of your tribe walk or use canoes on the rivers and ocean to move around.
1607 1608 1609 1610-11
Strange sight One day in early fall, as your family is storing foods to eat during the cold winter months, a ship arrives near your settlement. You’ve never seen a boat of this size. It’s about 85 feet long and 16 feet wide, and it’s made of wood. Tall masts have six sails billowing from them. About 20 grown men come ashore. They look different from your family and friends. They don’t have any women or children with them.
from The Mini Page © 2009 Universal Press Syndicate
Looking for a route
The men on the ship were led by Henry Hudson, an English explorer. His ship the Half Moon had left Amsterdam, in the Netherlands, in April 1609 and arrived at Henry Hudson the mouth of the Hudson River in early September. This voyage was the third of four trips Hudson made, in 1607, 1608, 1609 and 1610-11.
In 1607, Hudson was looking for a way to get from Europe to Asia without sailing around the southern coast of Africa. People in Europe liked items brought from India and China, especially spices to help preserve food. At first, Hudson thought he could sail right over the North Pole to get to the Far East. But the ice and freezing temperatures made him turn back. In 1608, he tried a route along the northern coast of Russia. When ice blocked this route, he turned toward North America. But his crew forced him to turn back toward England.

Supersport: Hershel McGriff Birthdate: 12-14-27
Hometown: Bridal Veil, Ore.
Ordinarily, nobody raves about the person who finishes 13th in a car race. But when that person is 81 years old, it creates more than a roar of excitement. That’s what happened recently when Hershel McGriff placed 13th in the Portland (Ore.) International Raceway event. McGriff, who began racing in 1945, made his mark on the NASCAR circuit in 1954. That year he won four times and produced 17 top-10 finishes in 24 events. While wheeling around various tracks, McGriff also operated a timber and mill business on the West Coast. In 2002, the ageless father of five children was inducted into the West Coast Stock Car Hall of Fame and in ’06 was enshrined in the Motorsports Hall of Fame. Now, at 81 going on 18, what will McGriff do next? Stay tuned.
Heading to North America An offer from the Netherlands
The Half Moon reached the coast near modern Virginia in August 1609. On Sept. 2, Hudson spotted a large island. It was Manhattan Island, where part of New York City is today. Hudson noted a river flowing into the bay and thought it might be the passage he was looking for.

After the 1608 voyage, Hudson lost his job with his English employer, The Muscovy Company. But soon, the Dutch East India Company offered to send him exploring again. They made him promise to sail around the north side of Novaya Zemlya, a group of islands north of Russia, and if he could not find a passage, to return to Amsterdam immediately.

Changing America In the early 1600s, Dutch people had just become independent, or free, from Spain. They were trading and doing business with people from other countries. By doing so, the Netherlands was becoming a more powerful country. Dutch people lived in both cities and rural, or country, areas.
After Hudson’s voyage When the Half Moon returned to England, Hudson was arrested for sailing under the Dutch flag. The British didn’t want the Dutch to gain any property in North America. However, King James finally dropped the charges against Hudson. His ship and its contents were returned to Amsterdam in 1610, and he started planning another voyage on an English ship.
Hudson’s final journey across the ocean Henry Hudson made his final attempt to find another route to Asia in 1610. An English company provided him with a sturdy ship, the Discovery, and let him chart his course as he wanted. But Hudson’s crew was very unhappy, and in June 1611, they planned a mutiny*. Hudson, his son, and a few others were cast off the ship in a small boat and left to drift away. There are many legends about what happened to Henry Hudson and the other castoffs. *A mutiny is a planned takeover, usually of a ship, by crewmembers who are not in charge.
New Amsterdam Hudson’s discoveries in North America brought opportunities to Dutch businessmen and traders. In 1614, Adriaen Block and his partner, Hendrick Christiaensen, started a trading company called New Netherland. Soon a colony formed, also called New Netherland, that

included parts of modern New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut and Delaware. The city at the tip of Manhattan Island was known as New Amsterdam. In 1664, when the British took control of the city, it became New York.
This painting, “The Last Voyage of Henry Hudson,” was made by British painter John Collier.
One native legend tells of finding a small boat with a young boy who was still alive. This might have been John Hudson, Henry’s son. But experts say we’ll probably never know what happened to Hudson and the others.
Changes for natives European explorers brought many changes to the native people of North America, both good and bad. Mohicans and other tribes were introduced to different animals, including cows, that provided new sources of food and hides. The Europeans brought guns and gunpowder, giving Native Americans more ways to defend themselves. Europeans also brought diseases that Native Americans had not seen before and had no natural defenses against.

Plastic bottles to be banned in state landﬁlls Increased recovery fuels growing demand for plastic bottles TIMES STAFF REPORT
RALEIGH – Starting Oct. 1, plastic bottles, oil filters and wooden pallets are banned from disposal in North Carolina’s landfills. North Carolina recovers less than one out of every five plastic bottles generated in the state, despite hosting some of the largest processors of these materials. The new ban is intended to boost the recovery of bottles, in large part to meet the growing demand for these materials. An example of the appetite for recovered plastic bottles is the Clear Path facility being built in Fayetteville, which will have the capacity to use 280 million pounds of polyethlene terephthalate (PET #1) bottles annually. Envision Plastics, the nation’s second largest recycler of high-density polyethlene (HDPE #2) bottles, also operates a facility in Reidsville. According to the National Association of PET Container Resources, end users of recycled PET in 11 southeastern states have the capacity for 1.439 billion pounds per year. HDPE reclaimers in the United States can use more than 1 billion pounds annually, but due to poor recovery rates are operating at 69 percent capacity. “Widespread compliance with the plastic bottle disposal ban will ensure a flow of plastic bottles to meet market demand for the materi-
als and will result in additional job creation through the expansion of recycling collection companies,” said Scott Mouw, environmental supervisor for the state Division of Pollution Prevention and Environmental Assistance. “The law represents a major growth opportunity for the state’s recycling businesses and for local government recycling collection programs as well.” State officials are educating public and private solid waste management facilities to separate the banned items from the waste stream before those items arrive at a disposal facility. If necessary, enforcement of the disposal bans will be applied primarily at disposal facilities such as landfills and transfer stations by the N.C. Division of Waste Management. The law does allow for accidental or occasional disposal of small amounts of banned materials. However, starting a recycling program for the banned materials is the simplest and easiest way to ensure compliance. Moreover, such recycling programs are good for the environment. If all the plastic bottles generated in the state were recycled, more than 2.4 billion additional plastic bottles would be kept out of landfills annually. Data from the N.C. Solid Waste Annual Report shows that some North Carolina counties are recycling plastic bottles at much higher rates than others. Orange County has a comprehensive program and claims the top spot in the county-by-county rankings. With a recovery rate of more than 29 pounds of plastic bottles per person, Orange Coun-

ty recycled more than seven times the state average on a per capita basis. The average county per capita recovery is 3.81 pounds per person. Caswell, Graham, Martin and Warren counties do not collect plastic as part of their recycling programs. A list detailing per capita plastic bottle recycling rates for each county can be found below. The totals include tonnage recycled by county and municipal programs in the county. Local collection programs typically target residential recyclables; additional plastic bottle recovery may be occurring through private recycling efforts. For more information regarding the data, contact Jim Hickman, DPPEA local government assistance team leader at (919) 7156528.

Currently there are 95 sites in 56 counties which means Public Health is better able to monitor the spread of flu, detect new strains, and determine effective use of anti viral treatment,” said DHHS Secretary Lanier Cansler. Influenza data collected by the state through its sentinel surveillance network of physicians, university health centers, hospitals/medical centers and public health agencies across the state indicate that influenza activity has begun to increase since the beginning of the school year, as expected. The data also
show that the majority of influenza samples confirmed by the State Laboratory of Public Health continues to be the 2009 H1N1 virus. “As the school year starts, we want to remind everyone to make sure they’re prepared for this flu season,” Perdue said. Everyone should follow standard health precautions as a first line of prevention; • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it. • If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve, not your hands. • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough
or sneeze. Alcohol-based hand cleaners are also effective. • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread this way. • Try to avoid close contact with sick people. • If you have flu-like symptoms, stay home from work or school and limit contact with others to keep from making them sick. • Get the seasonal flu vaccine now and the H1N1 vaccine when it becomes available.

Man arrested for making false reports
A Thomasville man is in trouble with the Davidson County Sheriff ’s Office for reporting his car stolen when he actually wrecked it. According to a DCSO press release, Edwin Soto, 24, of 315 Earlie Everhart Road, is charged with filing a false report of a motor vehicle theft after deputies discovered he was lying. On Monday, Soto called police claiming his 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spider had been stolen from his residence. Deputies later found the vehicle was involved in a single-car accident on E. Holly Grove Road in Lexington. Deputies went back and re-interviewed Soto, who admitted to wrecking the car and falsely reporting it stolen. He was issued a $500 secured bond and is scheduled to appear in court on Oct. 5.
Man dies after being struck by train
An early morning accident Saturday left a Thomasville dead after he was hit by a train near downtown. Kenneth Michael Brown, 35, of High Point, died Saturday around 3 a.m. after he apparently tripped while walking down the railroad tracks and was struck by a train at the 600 block of E. Main St. Emergency workers responded but Brown was pronounced dead at the scene. Alcohol may have been a factor. The investigation is ongoing.
Two arrested for stealing four wheeler
DCSO deputies tracked down two men who were stealing a 4-wheeler and fled when police arrived. On Tuesday, deputies received a call from a passing motorist who saw two people pushing a
4-wheeler on Cid Road toward a red Nissan truck parked on the side of the road. When deputies arrived the truck was pulling off, but when police tried to stop them, the men sped off. A pursuit followed that eventually ended on Willowmore Springs Road, where the men stopped and fled off into the woods. A Sheriff K-9 tracked the suspects to New Cut Road, leading to their arrest at 11:09 a.m. The 4-wheeler was returned to its owner, who said it had been left
