City reports massive wastewater spill BY KARISSA MINN Staff Writer

Nearly 16 million gallons of untreated wastewater likely entered Hamby Creek and flowed into High Rock Lake this summer, according to a report by the city of Thomasville. When the spill was reported to the N.C. Division of Water Quality on

Aug. 4, the city originally stated that it only totaled 385,000 gallons. In a revised report sent to the state last week, the figure increased to 15.93 million gallons, because the spill may have been occurring for weeks. Kelly Craver, Thomasville city manager, said that a manhole collapsed near Baptist Children’s Home in Thomasville,

‘Raw sewage has pathogens, viruses and bacteria ... This went on for 20 days, and people in High Rock Lake were essentially swimming in sewage.’ — Dean Naujoks Yadkin Riverkeeper possibly due to heavy rain as early as July 13. This caused an overflow of untreated wastewater

into North Hamby Creek, which is part of the Yadkin/Pee Dee River Basin. From there, it would emp-

ty into Abbott’s Creek and then High Rock Lake. “Because it was in a remote area, it wasn’t discovered,” Craver said. “It wasn’t one of those things where it was on a city street. It was the outfall line. It was really sort of out in the middle of nowhere.” Craver said that the city followed procedure in reporting the waste-

water released from the time the spill was discovered on Aug. 3 to the time it was repaired on Aug. 4. “In typical situations where you have a leak in the system, that’s a fairly accurate estimation of the amount of the spill,” Craver said. He said that the delay in finding the problem

Council to consider restructuring at TPD

Six more arrested in attempted murder case

BY KARISSA MINN

Staff Writer

Randolph County Sheriff ’s Office arrested six more people Friday believed to be involved in a Labor Day weekend altercation that left two men in the hospital with severe injuries. Charles Ray Gordon, 42, of 603 Pennington Ave., turned himself into police Friday, ending a week-long manhunt for a suspect authorities considered armed and dangerous. Gordon and his son, Dustin, were wanted for their involvement in the shooting of Toby Randall McDowell and the stabbing of Clayton Trevor Kindley at 5985 Jim Pierce Road in Trinity. Dustin Gordon, 22, of 1044 Harvest Drive, was arrested by Davie County Police at his job on Sept. 7. Both men are charged with two counts of first degree attempted murder, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, first degree burglary and impersonating a law enforcement officer. As the investigation progressed, more names started surfacing, leading RCSO to issue five more warrants in the Thomasville area. Working with Thomasville Police Department, RCSO arrested Chandra Hill Thrift, 35, of 6698 Myrtle Drive, Joshua Richard Harris, 19, of 717 Fields St., Rodney Ford Duke Jr., of 1297 Kanoy Farm Road, John William Bice, 44, of 265 Myrtle Drive, and Scott Alan Casad, 46, of 7073 Canaan Church Road in Denton. All five suspects are facing the same charges as the Gordons. “We did a little leg work and got one suspect under arrest,” RCSO Lt. Barry

It’s more of a civil issue.” When the uncle captured the dog and went to its owner, he struck the animal in the head with an object and left it injured on the porch. The dog’s shots were up to date, but the canine had to be taken to a veterinarian in Winston-Salem for its injuries. The dog’s owner was issued a nuisance order by DCSO. Grice said the investigation is ongo-

At its Sept. 21 meeting, Thomasville City Council will consider a reclassification of a police department position from lieutenant to captain, as part of a restructuring plan set forth by Chief Jeff Insley. “We’ve been looking at the police department to try to see if we could improve our efficiency and improve our communication, both internal and external,” Insley said. “I felt like I needed one additional captain. What I’m asking is that one lieutenant’s position be reclassified as a captain’s position, to spread out the load and help us as we improve communication efficiency.” Insley’s recommendations include changing the title of major to deputy chief, with a rank of major; reclassifying one lieutenant’s position to an Investigative Services Bureau Commander, with a rank of captain; and allowing on-call detectives to drive their vehicles home during their oncall week, which is once a month. These changes can be made using current staff, Insley said, with the only costs being the reclassification and the increase in fuel costs. Under Insley’s plan, the department would be organized into the Office of the Chief; the Administrative Bureau, under the direction of the deputy chief; the Field Operations Bureau, under the direction of the Field Operations Commander, captain; and the Investigative Services Bureau, under the direction of the Investigative Services Commander, captain.

Employees with Unilin Flooring participated in United Way of Davidson County’s Week of Caring by cleaning up the Challenge Course for the Thomasville Coalition on Alcohol and Drug Abuse last week.

LENDING A CARING HAND BY ELIOT DUKE Staff Writer As part of the United Way of Davidson County’s Week of Caring, a local company took time out to clean up a piece of land that epitomizes the word teamwork. Unilin Flooring, located at 550 Cloniger Drive, donated time and equipment last week to help clear off the Challenge Course

for the Thomasville Coalition on Alcohol and Drug Abuse. Unilin was one of dozens of area partners with the United Way who took part in the annual week of giving back to the community. “Unilin has come on so strong the last few years,” Lee Jessup, United Way of Davidson County president, said. “They have really increased their efforts the last two years and have energized it into one of our best new

campaigns. Employees putting in time shows their level of commitment to the entire county.” A dozen Unilin employees spent the day picking up garbage and debris from the course and also did some landscaping, trimming and raking. Mary Jane Akerman, Wellness Coordinator for Thomasville City Schools, said the efforts of the Unilin employ-

Lexington girl hospitalized from dog bite BY ELIOT DUKE Staff Writer A 4-year-old Lexington girl suffered facial injuries Sunday when an overzealous dog bit her trying to get at a lollipop. According to a Davidson County Sheriff ’s Office press release, deputies arrived at 330 Spring Drive, located north of Lexington, to investigate a disturbance call regarding a dog bite. Police found the dog’s owner, who said a man brought the dog home, saying it bit his niece.

Community Sponsor

Several witnesses told deputies that the little girl had a lollipop in her mouth and the dog, a 20pound black boxer mix, was trying to get it. The dog then jumped on her, knocking her down and biting her in the face. The girl was taken to Lexington Memorial Hospital and later transferred to Brenner’s Children Hospital in Winston-Salem. Grice said the 4-year-old needed several stitches around her mouth. “The dog did some pretty good damage to the girl,” Sheriff David Grice said. “Every dog owner says their dog isn’t vicious, it’s

LIFELONG HEALTH

DR. DAVID LIPSCHITZ Syndicated Columnist It is easy to see how maintaining an active social life is good for your health, but new studies reveal that staying connected through volunteering can actually reduce the effects of aging. By specifically improving self-esteem and selfconfidence, volunteering can help reduce heart rates and blood pressure, increase endorphin production and enhance the immune system. Volunteering has also been shown to alleviate stress, lessen insomnia and hasten surgery recovery time. Studies show that helping others results in an overall heightened sense of well-being, which has countless positive effects on health. Bruce Linton, a psychologist at the University of California at Berkeley, believes that the benefits of volunteering should be obvious since we are such social beings; it makes sense that meaningful relationships, being productive and keeping active are vital to healthy aging. “By volunteering and helping others, we’re able to enjoy the greatest of all human pleasures: caring for others and being cared about,” Linton says. By allowing ourselves to experience close interpersonal relationships, volunteering can help strengthen our own sense of identity and enhance our social support network. People with these strong social bonds have lower premature death rates, less heart disease and lower risks of a multitude of illnesses. With all these health benefits, it is an easy step to see how volunteer work can increase longevity. Researchers at the University of Michigan found a remarkable link between volunteering and longevity by surveying more than 1,200

adults over age 65 in 1986 and reassessing them six years later. Those who volunteered at least 40 hours each year to a single cause were 40 percent more likely to be alive at the end of the study. More recent studies have shown that those who volunteer a minimum of 14 hours a week live five years longer than those who do not. Interestingly, volunteers who spread their time among several organizations did not gain an advantage in longevity. This could indicate that there is a health benefit to having a singular passion and commitment to a specific cause. The recession has led to a marked reduction in donations to many charities, and the need for volunteers is greater than ever. Though reduced financial security may mean that baby boomers will work longer and be less available for charitable work, research done by AARP shows that working individuals are just as likely to volunteer for the same or more hours than retirees. As baby boomers reach retirement age and beyond, this generation has the potential to become a huge force for community endeavors. Fully half of all baby boomers already volunteer and give money to charitable causes, most frequently to Alzheimer’s disease, social services, the environment and the military. Although the need for volunteers has never been so great, the quality of the volunteering is equally important. Volunteering should be a meaningful and valuable experience. Baby

boomers are not likely to settle for licking stamps or answering phones. Rather, the experience, expertise and attitude of baby boomers make them valuable contributors to any organization. Remember that all of us -- irrespective of our financial status, sex or ethnicity -- will require help at some point of our lives. Today, you may be the one with the time and skills, but tomorrow you may be the beneficiary of someone else’s volunteer efforts. Put your assets to work by tutoring at a public school, working at a food bank or campaigning for a cause. Choose activities and groups that fit your health and schedule, and most importantly, volunteer for an organization with a cause you are passionate about. If you have the time to spare, someone can use your talents. So often we remind young people of the importance of volunteering, but there is no age requirement for community involvement. It is never too early or too late to become a meaningful volunteer. Not only will it provide you an unparalleled outlet for community support, but it can also have an amazing effect on your health.

DCCC plans events for Davie Education Center TIMES STAFF REPORT

The public is invited to an open house at Davidson County Community College’s Davie Education Center on Tuesday, Sept. 22, from 5 to 7 p.m. The open house at 120 Kinderton Boulevard in Advance will offer tours and a chance to meet the faculty. Full-time and part-time curriculum and continuing education faculty will greet past, present and future students to answer questions, describe courses and programs, and demonstrate videoconferencing technology. The open house will celebrate the education center that opened in April 2008. The open house is just one of many DCCC special events to which the public is invited at no cost. On Friday, Sept. 25, from 11 a.m. to noon, the Davie Campus of DCCC will host an informative address by world travelers known as “The Healing Seekers” in the first of a “‘Global Citizen’ series. The Healing Seekers explore health and healing traditions around the globe. The series will offer cultural and environmental topics and discussions to increase awareness of the importance of global citizenship and steward-

ship. For example, rainforests once covered 14 percent of the earth’s land surface, but due to deforestation by humans, they now cover only six percent. Rainforests not only provide a home for many endangered and nearlyextinct animals, but they are home to many plants that have unique medicinal properties that could possibly cure some of the world’s most devastating diseases. Over 80 percent of antibiotics are discovered in nature, and over 70 percent of the compounds with anti-cancerous properties are tropical. The Healing Seekers will speak in Room 110 of the new Administration Building on the Davie Campus, located at 1205 Salisbury Road, Mocksville. The Davie Campus of DCCC will participate in other public events such as: Davie County’s STEM Collaboration Kickoff Event, Wednesday, Sept. 28, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Cornerstone Christian Church, 1585 N.C. Highway 801 North in Mocksville. The featured speaker is Dr. Anthony Atala, director of Wake Forest University’s Institute for Regenerative Medicine, who helped create the world’s first tissueengineered bladder ever

grown in a laboratory and successfully implanted in patients. Davie County is one of only three counties in North Carolina funded by the Gates Foundation to promote science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education. DCCC will take part in the Davie County Schools Showcase on Saturday, Oct. 3, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in downtown Mocksville from the Square to Junker Mill. Featured will be student entertainers, booths sponsored by high school clubs, PTAs, and food vendors. The showcase will conclude with the Davie High School Homecoming Parade to celebrate the upcoming Spirit Week. DCCC will participate in “Hope Lives,” on Saturday, Oct. 24, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., at First United Methodist Church, located 310 North Main St., Mocksville. This community-wide event will offer free food, clothing and helpful services for those affected by the economic downturn.

Flash fiction to the rescue VIEWPOINT

D.G. MARTIN N.C. Columnist “I just can’t read all those books you write about in your column,” a reader told me the other day. “So tell me the one North Carolina book or author that I should read,” she continued. Now, that is a difficult assignment. In fact it is an impossible one for me. Which of the thousand North Carolina-related books that come out each year would be the right one for that reader—or for you? I just can’t help you, except to say, Go to your local bookstore and tell the owner or manager about books you have already read and liked. I will bet that he or she will have two or three “must read” options for you in a flash. There is another way. A new book, published just a few days ago, makes it possible to quickly read a good sample of the work of 65 of North Carolina’s best fiction writers. You can try the authors out and pick the ones who are best for you. The new book, “Long Story, Short” (edited by Marianne Gingher and published by UNC Press) has assembled a set of very, very short stories, one for each author. Each story is so short you can read it in less that five or ten minutes. The name for such short shorts is “flash fiction.” While they are short, the stories have character, plot, and some resolution or message to go along with the entertainment they deliver. For example, Lee Smith’s “Sex, Love, Death, Sex, High School” puts the reader in the shoes of a Virginia mountain high school girl who puts aside the warnings about the dangers of “petting” and finds “romantic fever” in the front seat of a “rusty old pick up.” Lee’s former student, Jill McCorkle, writes in “Viewmaster” about a second wife’s effort to deal with a photo

in her husband keeps in his office. The photo shows her husband and his ex-wife in a very happy pose. The second wife wonders why he keeps this picture close by and why he does not understand that it makes her upset. Sarah Dessen, a former student of Jill McCorkle, gives us a story of a jilted bride-tobe dealing with the follow-ups to a called-off wedding. In “Registry,” Dessen writes in the voice of the jilted woman, who wonders, among many other things, why she must return the wedding gifts. Michael Malone takes his favorite North Carolina local law enforcement office to Christmastime in New York City. In “Nero,” our fellow Tar Heel, Cuddy Mangum, with the help of a cat, solves a murder in fewer than five pages, perhaps a world’s record for the shortest murder mystery. Daniel Wallace’s “Laura, Linda, Sweetie Pie” is a humorous look at authors’ use of real people in their fiction. Haven Kimmel’s “The Dream” gives readers a look at the changing friendship of two 14-year-old girls, one of whom is carried away by her attraction to her new boyfriend and the excitement of sex, while the other painfully remembers the joy of friendship before boys. Will Blythe’s “The End,” is a story made up mostly of one or two sentence descriptions of the deaths of many different people. Here is a sample: “He died of a massive coronary while trying to sneak his ball from the rough on the ninth hole of Pinehurst #2, leaving the other members of his foursome in a quandary about whether to joke about this with his widow.” These seven authors recently read their stories in less than an hour at an event celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Chapel Hill Public Library. Their stories and 58 more are waiting for you in “Long Story, Short.” It is a literary smorgasbord.

The Republican health care failure VIEWPOINT

STEVE CHAPMAN Syndicated Columnist Republicans fault President Obama for plans that would greatly expand federal outlays on health care, enlarge the federal role in the provision of medicine, doom private insurance and wrestle Aunt Sally into the grave. They have some valid points. But while they’re heaping blame on Obama, they need to save a share for someone else: themselves. His GOP critics in Congress, after all, have proposals to help the uninsured and curb health care costs. During his speech to Congress Wednesday, they waved their own bill at him. But for four years under President Bush, we had not only a Republican president but also a Republican Congress. And what happened? Nothing. Republicans left health care reform to wait until the Democrats regained power, and now the Democrats have. One reason the president has a good chance of getting ambitious legislation passed this year is that so many health care failures have gone unaddressed for so long. Obama and his allies can justify their program partly because the GOP has been so slow and tepid in offering alternatives. If the choice is between the quite imperfect Democratic plan and nothing, the public may prefer the Democratic plan. It didn’t have to be this way. Republicans actually

have some plausible ideas for improving the health care system. Let small businesses band together to buy insurance? Sure. Medical malpractice reform? Bound to help. Giving federal subsidies to help low-income individuals buy coverage? Go for it. But for Republicans to propose all these measures brings to mind my friend who, new to Chicago, approached a city transit officer and said he’d like to get to State and Randolph streets. The frosty reply: “Buddy, who’s stopping you?” The only people who stopped Republicans from putting these ideas into practice were Republicans. Former Reagan administration official Joseph Antos, a health care expert at the conservative American Enterprise Institute in Washington, is among those who wonder why. “The sad thing is Republicans have been talking about these things for a long, long time,” he told me. You may have forgotten that George W. Bush made a big deal of proposing tax credits of $7,500 per person or $15,000 per family to purchase medical coverage. He did that in 2007, only to be spurned by a Democratic Congress. Why did he wait till the seventh year of his term? He didn’t. He had offered the idea in 2004, only to encounter raging indifference in his Republican Congress. The truth is Republicans just can’t muster an interest in the subject until a Democratic president comes along and offers legislation, which is their cue to wake up and scream in horror. They solemnly agree the existing system has a host of serious flaws. But they can never get excited about fixing them — only about making sure Democrats don’t get to. “The passion you need to drive health care reform through Congress has not

been present with Republicans,” laments Gail Wilensky, who headed the agency that runs Medicare under President George H.W. Bush and advised both George W. Bush and John McCain. “Even liability reform -- they couldn’t get that through.” Stuart Butler, a veteran health care expert at the conservative Heritage Foundation in Washington, shares her frustration. When I asked him whether he blamed Republicans for not adopting sensible innovations when they held power, he replied, “Absolutely! They just don’t get it. They just feel that it’s not something they do, somehow. Republicans missed a tremendous opportunity.” Actually, they did worse than miss an opportunity. They stimulated the public appetite for lavish federal spending on health care while catering to the illusion that it can be provided painlessly. “They put in prescription drug coverage for Medicare,” Butler complains, “the biggest entitlement since the Johnson administration.” That program is projected to cost nearly $1 trillion in federal outlays over the next decade, most of which will be paid for by sending the bill to our children. So now we have the GOP railing against Obama because he rejects their good ideas, busts the budget and enlarges the government’s role in our lives. No wonder they’re mad. Heck, if that’s what the American people wanted, they could have left Republicans in power. Steve Chapman blogs daily at newsblogs.chicagotribune. com/steve_chapman.

BY ELIOT DUKE Staff Writer

A Lexington man accused of sexually assaulting two neighborhood girls was more than happy to see police arrive when angry family members gathered at his house seeking justice. Herbert James Delosh, 54, of 204 Gordon Lane in Lexington, was arrested Sunday and charged with four counts of first degree sex offense with a child and one count of taking indecent liberties with a child for incidents involving two juvenile girls. He was issued a $300,000 secured bond and is scheduled to appear in court on Oct. 5. Deputies, investigating a civil dispute, arrived at Pine Meadow Drive in Lexington and found a group of people holding Delosh on the ground until authorities showed up. “They took the rope down out of the tree,” said Grice. “Family members of the victims had him detained.” Grice said the assaults occurred in the neighborhood between June 1 and Sept. 13 while the victims were playing hide-andseek with Delosh.

Hamlin best at home track

UNC captures ugly win

Vickers slides into Chase for first time

BY BRIANA GORMAN Durham Herald Sun

“I had a great car tonight and I got to thank

EAST HARTFORD, Conn. — In North Carolina Butch Davis’ 35 year coaching career he’s never won a game like Saturday’s victory over Connecticut. With the game tied with 1:32 to play, UConn left guard Dan Ryan was called for holding UNC defensive end Robert Quinn in the end zone for a safety, and the Tar Heels’ defense held off the Huskies in the final minute and a half to escape Rentschler Field with a 12-10 win. “We were very fortunate to win this game,” Davis said. “But to make some of that fortunate happen, a lot of things had to happen. Our kids had to keep competing and playing hard and they spilled their guts out there every single snap.” It was a defensive struggle for most of the game as neither team could get much going on offense. Both teams had two turnovers apiece and the Huskies finished with just 196 of offense. The Tar Heels recorded 268 yards of offense, but 155 of those yards came on their final two drives, which resulted in a Casey Barth field goal and a 2-yard touchdown pass from T.J. Yates touchdown to Zack Pianalto. “It’s kind of hard to get in a rhythm and get things going when your offense sputters like that,” said Yates, who was sacked six times. “We tried almost everything we had, threw everything we had at them, just sometimes you’ve got to go back to the basics, trust your conditioning, trust that you worked harder than the other team in the offseason and that we were going to prevail.” The Huskies led 10-0 at the start of the fourth thanks to a field goal right before halftime and a touchdown run at the end of the third. But after stalling for much of the game, the Tar Heels offense seemed to find some life on its final two drives. After UConn’s touchdown run, UNC got the ball back on its own 17, and Yates directed the march down field with five passes totaling 67 yards. But UNC couldn’t get any closer than the 4-yard line and settled for a 22-yard field goal. “We kept on our same game plan even in the fourth quarter,” Yates said. “We tried different things and went back to our original game plan, just kind of pound it down the field in those last two drives. It was really effective.” UNC forced a Huskie punt on the ensuing possession and got the ball back on their own 24. Again Yates, helped by running back Ryan Houston, directed the drive.

Local native Denny Hamlin from Chesapeake finally won a NASCAR Sprint Cup race at his home track after coming “oh, so close” so many times before.

Renfree TD paves way for Duke BY BRYAN STRICKLAND Durham Herald Sun WEST POINT, N.Y. — Sean Renfree had been waiting for this moment for what seemed like forever, yet somehow it still snuck up on him. With Duke trailing Army 10-7 midway

through the third quarter Saturday afternoon, Coach David Cutcliffe called Renfree’s number for the first time in his college career. Renfree, with virtually no time to warm up, responded by delivering the go-ahead touchdown pass on his second snap,

and Duke rolled from there to a 35-19 victory at Michie Stadium. “The coaches told me to start getting some snaps, start getting warmed up, but Army turned it over and I didn’t get a chance to get any snaps or warm up,” Renfree said. “They were just like, ‘Go, go,

go!’ I went in there, and Coach made a great call, a great bootleg. “It was a lot of fun, but it kind of shocked me. I was nervous but confident.” Two plays after Army fullback Kingsley Ehie

TRACK From page 7 in his FedEx Toyota. He won earlier this year at Pocono. Hamlin is one of the 12 Chase participants but his Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Kyle Busch didn’t make it. Hamlin had locked in a spot before the race but Kyle needed to finish well ahead of Brian Vickers to make it. Kyle finished fifth but Vickers was seventh and wound up grabbing the 12th spot by eight points over Busch. Kurt Busch finished second and made the Chase. Jeff Gordon was third and in The Chase. Everybody’s favorite, Mark Martin, was fourth and secured a Chase spot and there wasn’t a happier man in Virginia on Saturday night when this race ended. Kyle finished fifth and Clint Bowyer was sixth. Vickers was seventh and former Indianapolis 500 winner Sam Hornish finished eighth. Kevin Harvick was ninth and Ryan Newman 10th, which earned him a slot in the Chase, along with his car owner Tony Stewart, who had a rough night and wound up 17th. Jimmy Johnson finished 11th and he’s in the Chase, along with 12thplace finisher Kasey Kahne and 13th-place finisher Greg Biffle. Carl Edwards and Juan Pablo Montoya

also made the Chase. It will be Montoya’s first Chase as well as the first for team owner Chip Ganassi. Former series champion Matt Kenseth finished 25th and failed to qualify for the Chase for the first time. The first race in the Chase begins Sunday, Sept. 20 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Saturday night’s race at Richmond had so many scripts, you couldn’t keep up. If so-and-so finished 20th or better, he made the Chase. If another driver finished 32nd, he made it. This one was one for the record books, as only four drivers were guaranteed spots in the Chase to the NASCAR Sprint Cup and another eleven were in position to make it with either good luck for themselves or bad luck for others. The ageless Martin, hoping to be one of the 12 contenders, started from the pole position after a late shower wet the track and delayed the start. Martin kept the lead with local favorite Hamlin in his shadow. Hamlin passed Martin on Lap five. Scott Speed brought out the first caution when he lost it off Turn 4 and hit the outside wall. Hamlin maintained the lead after a restart and at 40 laps led Martin, Gordon, Martin Truex Jr., Kahne, Jimmie Johnson, Kyle Busch, Vickers, Har-

vick and Dale Earnhardt, Jr. Another caution slowed the field at Lap 46 when David Stremme, Reed Sorensen and Stewart tried to maneuver Turn 4 while three abreast. Sorensen and Stewart spun. Hamlin went out front again when the race restarted on Lap 50. Another caution was necessary when Regan Smith’s Chevy lost power on Lap 57. On this restart at Lap 67, Hamlin held the lead with Gordon next, followed by Martin, Truex, Kurt Busch, Earnhardt, Harvick, Johnson, Kyle Busch, AJ Allmendinger, Montoya, Kahne, Vickers, Marcos Ambrose and Jamie McMurray. The Roush Fenway Racing drivers, at this point in the race, were pushing it to make the Chase with Edwards 20th, Biffle 24th and Kenseth 25th. Gordon went back in front of Hamlin shortly before the 100-lap mark. A caution fell again on Lap 107. Gordon held the lead until Hamlin slipped past on Lap 147. Another caution flew on Lap 173 for debris. At the half-way point of 200 laps, here’s how things stood: Hamlin continued to swap the lead with Gordon and Martin ran a strong third. Another caution fell shortly after halfway when Regan Smith’s bad luck continued and something broke on his car.

UNC From page 7 Houston had 32 rushing yards on the possession, and Yates accounted for 55 passing yards, including a 2-yard reception to Pianalto to tie the score at 10-10 with 2:33 remaining. But as the junior tight end was celebrating his second career touchdown he came down hard on his right foot and had to be carted off the field. He said he had a sub talar dislocation and didn’t know how long he would be out. Pianalto broke his left leg on the first touchdown reception of his career last season against Georgia Tech. “Honestly, I don’t even really know what happened,” said Pianalto, who finished as UNC’s

top receiver with seven catches for 87 yards. “I can’t wait to see the footage. I scored and just kind of started jogging back. And it seemed to either give out or I stepped on somebody’s foot – I don’t know what happened.” With the score tied and the clock winding down, it appeared the game would be headed to overtime, until UNC’s defense stepped up once again. UConn faced a 3-and-22 from its own 8 and gave the ball to tailback Jordan Todman out of the end zone, but flags flew at the end of his 16-yard run. Ryan had pulled Quinn down in the end zone for a hold and the play resulted in a safety to put UNC up 12-10 with 1:32 remaining. “I knew I beat him around the corner, and it felt like I got pulled down,” Quinn said. “But I just kept going. I’m just

trying to make plays and then I saw the flags.” But the drama wasn’t over as the Huskies recovered the ensuing onside kick and began to move down the field until UNC’s defense made a couple key plays — including a sack — forcing the Huskies turned the ball over on downs. “Clearly our defense played very, very well today,” Davis said. “They took the field after turnovers and handled the sudden change situations. …They kept giving us chances in hopes that our offense would gets some momentum and a little bit of traction.” Notes: North Carolina quarterback T.J. Yates became just the fifth player in UNC history to throw for 4,000 yards. …Coach Butch Davis improves to 3-1 against Big East teams.

AREA SPORTS BRIEFS Concealed Handgun class There will be a concealed handgun class Sept. 26 at Pilot Fire Department. The class is from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. This class is mandatory for anyone wishing to get a concealed handgun permit. The class is covered by Jason Livingston, N.C. certified firearms instructor and 16 years law enforcement experience. The

DUKE From page 7 fumbled at Duke’s 19yard line and true freshman defensive tackle John Drew recovered it, Renfree rolled to his left and hit tight end Brett Huffman in stride near the 10-yard line for a 17yard score. Duke’s next drive, after an Army field goal, resulted in a 31-yard hookup from Renfree to Donovan Varner for a 2113 lead. Duke cornerback Leon Wright took care of the rest. In the span of 16 seconds, Wright became the first player in school history to return two interceptions for touchdowns in a game, going 51 yards with the first one and 33 yards with the second one to seal a road victory one week after a demoralizing home loss to Richmond in the season opener. “I told our team at halftime that there was no comparison in our energy today and what it was against Richmond,” Cutcliffe said. “Even though we were behind, even though we hadn’t played perfectly, there was a lot of energy on the field and on the sidelines. It felt like who we are. “I told them at halftime, ‘If you just keep playing, we’ll make the plays.’ “ Cutcliffe had planned to play Renfree in the opener, but it simply didn’t work out. Against Army, with Lewis having completed just 5 of 16 passes for 60 yards, Cutcliffe decided to give his redshirt

LEADER From page 7 all the guys on the team for giving me a great car,” Brunnhoelzl said. “It is the first time I have had a car that actually got better the harder I drove it.” Brunnhoelzl qualified his No. 28 Oval Speed Ford on the outside of the front row and started the race ninth after the redraw. Frank Fleming put his No. 40 Jerry Hunt Auto Sales Pontiac up front when he started from the point after the redraw. Fleming, John Smith and Burt Myers led the field for the first 56 laps under green when the first of five yellow flags were given to the field. Fleming maintained his lead on the restart but after L.W. Miller and Buddy Emory got together on lap 63 to bring out the second caution, Myers was able to pass Fleming on the restart. Although happy with his top-three finish after two consecutive bad finishes due to an accident and motor woes, Fleming felt he had a car capable of winning the race. “These guys keep getting me on the restarts,” Fleming added. “I have to find a way to get our gearing right so we can handle these guys on the restart.” Myers, who won his series-record 19th career Coors Light Pole Award earlier in the day, also was happy with his runner-up finish. He led from laps 68 to 84 before Brunnhoelzl made a daring pass on the outside and remained out front the rest of the

freshman his shot. Renfree responded by completing 7 of 8 passes for 106 yards. “He certainly took advantage of the opportunity,” said Cutcliffe, who referred to Renfree as the team’s backup but didn’t comment further on his quarterbacking plans going forward. “I had no problem with putting Thad back in the game, but I just don’t think you do that when you’ve got a little hot hand. “We win and lose as a team, and we’ll move forward as a team.” That’s certainly the attitude displayed by Lewis, who had said in the preseason that he would be Renfree’s biggest cheerleader. “He says he’s a cheerleader, but he’s a leader,” Renfree said. “You’d expect any other quarterback to just kind of hang his head, but Thad was the opposite. “He was coming over to me all the time, saying, ‘Hey, you’re doing great. Keep doing what you’re doing. I’m here for you.’” The Blue Devils certainly needed all hands on deck against an Army team trying to start 2-0 for the first time since 1996. Army started strong, with slot back Patrick Mealy gaining 55 yards on the game’s first snap when the triple-option Black Knights hit Duke with another option — a run play out of a more tradition set that Duke hadn’t seen. But from that drive on, which ended with a 2-yard touchdown run by quarterback Trent

night. “I told the guys under that last caution that we were really good and we are getting back to where we can race for wins again,” Myers said. Brunnhoelzl added he felt that opportunity to pass Myers on lap 85 might be the only chance he was going to get against the veteran driver. “I knew that might be the only shot I had so I took it and he and I raced for the lead real clean and didn’t touch each other,” Brunnhoelzl said. “My car just drove so well I felt like I could make the pass on the outside.” Gene Pack, Thomas Stinson, Buddy Emory, Josh Nichols and Jim Willis rounded out the top 10. Seuss, who entered the night in second-place in the point standings, eventually finished 14th – five laps down – after being forced to pit numerous times with mid-race ignition problems. It was also not a good night for the defending NWSMT champion Brian Loftin. Loftin and Brian Nichols made contact while the drivers were running sixth and eighth collectively sending Loftin into the Turn 1 wall backwards making hard contact. Loftin, who entered the night in thirdplace in the standings, attempted to stay in the race but parked his car several laps later due to the damage. As a result of problems with Seuss and Loftin during the race, Brunnhoelzl was able to extend his lead in the championship standings to 135 points.

Your Town. Your Times.

Steelman, Duke’s defense kept getting stronger, and Army didn’t find the end zone again until the game’s final play. “This is very different game for our defense, and they handled it well,” Cutcliffe said. “We work year-round preparing for that style of offense, and it showed. “They keep cracking at you until you make mistakes. We just didn’t make a lot of mistakes.” Duke’s offense was more mistake-prone. Army extended its lead to 10-0 when Lewis lost a fumble, the first of two coughed up by the Blue Devils in the opening half. Lewis started to settle down midway through the second quarter, leading Duke to its first scoring drive, capped by a 14-yard touchdown toss to true freshman Conner Vernon — the 50th TD pass of Lewis’ career. Vernon finished with two catches for 23 yards but played bigger than that, drawing a pair of pass interference calls — including one on the scoring drive — and returning a kick 55 yards. Duke seemed to have turned the tide before the quarterback change, but the score still stood at 107 when Renfree entered the fray. “It shocked me when they said, ‘You’re in there.’ I just ran in there and threw that pass,” Renfree said. “I was the happiest kid ever, running down there and celebrating with my team. “It was a great moment.”

FROM PAGE 1 HAND From page 1 ees helped save money in man hours that would’ve been spent performing the much-needed clean up. “It’s a way to extend the giving they do to the United Way in actual man hours and elbow grease,” said Akerman. “It was wonderful to work with them. It was a great afternoon.” During its Week of Caring campaign, United Way non-profit partner agencies are asked to come up with projects that volunteers can do. Companies are then matched up with those partners to get the projects completed. The week of caring initially started as a one day event, but as it grew, the United Way extended it to the first full week in September. This year, 200 volunteers helped complete 40 projects. Akerman said the challenge course helps build teamwork and decisionmaking by taking groups through obstacles that challenges them to figure out different problems by working together. People are taught to find support

in their community to solve a situation rather than relying on drugs and alcohol. The course is located behind Thomasville Middle School and is maintained by the Thomasville Coalition on Alcohol and Drug Abuse. “It’s in the woods, and over time, limbs fall down and weeds grow up,” Akerman said. “It was really nice having volunteers come out and help get it ready for the new year. They pulled out a huge pile of trash.” Unilin has contributed on three projects for the United Way recently. In addition to recent clean up, Unilin helped the Lexington Public Library, trimming shrubs and picking up trash. The company also assisted a senior citizen with Davidson County Senior Services by fixing some plumbing problems. “They have meant a lot to the United Way and the community,” said Kristie Hege, United Way campaign coordinator. “We’re so thankful for their partnership.

CASE From page 1 Hazelton said. “We started talking to a few more and ended up with six we arrested. It’s a little complicated, but unfortunately I can’t say a lot about it. All I can say is one fellow got together and called a bunch of friends. They went over to the victim’s house and decided to do what they did. Everybody involved, the ones that went to the house, pretty much knew each other.”

SPILL From page 1 was caused by a lack of communication. An employee at the Hamby Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant told the Yadkin Riverkeeper, Dean Naujoks, that the city was under-reporting a spill. Naujoks contacted the Environmental Protection Agency on Aug. 27, which began a criminal investigation into the matter. When EPA officials looked at the data from the wastewater treatment plant, they saw that the flow to the plant was lower than normal for about two weeks. They asked the city to submit an amended report based on the new data. Morgan Huffman, Thomasville Director of Public Services, said that if plant employees did notice unusually low numbers at that time, their concerns didn’t make it very far up the chain of command. He said that he regrets that the problem wasn’t addressed internally. Based on the initial report, the city paid a fine of $1,616 to the state. Craver said that he expects that fine to go up after the revised estimate. He said he rode along Abbott’s Creek and High

Hazelton said all the arrests were made in Thomasville and TPD helped serve warrants on the suspects. “They were a lot of help,” Hazelton said. “We told them the warrants we had and they assisted us.

STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA COUNTY OF DAVIDSON IN THE GENERAL COURT OF JUSTICE DISTRICT COURT DIVISION File No. 09 CVD 1807 CITY OF THOMASVILLE, Plaintiff, vs.

TPD Rock Lake last week on a personal watercraft and saw no signs of environmental damage. Naujoks said that this was the largest spill he had heard of in North Carolina, and he mentioned that it’s even larger than the 1989 Exxon Valdez spill of 10.8 million gallons of crude oil into Prince William Sound in Alaska. “Raw sewage has pathogens, viruses and bacteria,” Naujoks said. “This went on for 20 days, and people in High Rock Lake were essentially swimming in sewage.” The riverkeeper said that sewer infrastructure is overlooked in favor of funding roads or schools, but the public health and environmental risks make it very important. Huffman echoed this point. “A lot of our infrastructure has been out of sight and out of mind for a long time, and now it’s making itself known,” Huffman said. “Despite current economic times, a large investment is going to need to be made in infrastructure, not just in Thomasville, but everywhere.”

From page 1 Sept. 21 council meeting. One will concern a possible amendment to a zoning ordinance that would make church banners exempt from temporary sign regulations. The second public hearing will be about a grant application for $75,000 in Community Development Block Grant funds for water and sewer hook-ups. The grant will pay for city tap fees and connections to eligible homes. The homeowners must be low or moderate income, and they must be located adjacent to service lines. Council members also plan to discuss a 2009-10 budget amendment to account for a decrease in

revenue from the beer and wine tax. “The state has decided that as part of their revenue needs to balance the budget, they’ll take twothirds of the beer and wine tax collected for this budget year,” said City Manger Kelly Craver. Craver said that normally, the city expects about $120,000 to come in from that tax, but this year that figure likely will drop by about $80,000. Also at the Sept. 21 meeting, Mary C. Cridlebaugh will speak for five minutes about a recent wastewater spill in Thomasville, and Barney W. Hill will speak for two minutes about the city’s graffiti ordinance.

Grant to expand health insurance to uninsured working parents TIMES STAFF REPORT

RALEIGH – Gov. Bev Perdue today announced that North Carolina has received a $17 million five-year grant to fund a pilot health program that extends health care coverage to uninsured, low income parents — as proposed in her campaign health care roadmap. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services awarded the State Health Access Program (SHAP) grant to only 13 states, including North Carolina. The award will cover more than 1,500 low income, working families in North Carolina. “One of the biggest steps toward universal coverage for children involves extending coverage to their parents,” Perdue said. “With this grant award, North Carolina can focus on making an affordable health care option for our uninsured, working parents and kids.” North Carolina has received $1,264,097 for year one to develop a low-cost, limited benefit plan, which will increase to $4 million in years two through five. The pilot program will be administered by the N.C. Office of Rural Health and Community Care and the N.C. Division of Medical Assistance. The total $17 million federal grant comprises almost the entirety of the project’s funding. To qualify, families must be uninsured and at or below 125% of the federal poverty level. Parents must demonstrate that their children are enrolled in or have applied for Medicaid or the state’s CHIP, or otherwise have private insurance coverage. Because of this requirement, the program should increase the number of children with health insurance. Enrollees also will be expected
