Debate heats up at candidate’s forum BY ELIOT DUKE Staff Writer

Incumbent House Majority Leader Hugh Holliman (D-NC) and Republican challenger Rayne Brown faced off Thursday during a forum at Piedmont Crossing and offered differing opinions on a variety of topics leading up to their battle for the 81st House District seat in November. From the gas tax to education, Brown and Holliman often clashed on what direction North Carolina needs to go in order to stay competitive, both economically and academical-

ly, with the rest of the country. Brown feels spending is out of control in Raleigh and representatives are not being fiscally responBrown sible with tax payer dollars. “State and local governments are encouraged to put back eight percent every year for a rainy day,” Brown said. “North Carolina barely puts back five percent. If we had contributed to that rainy day fund like we should, that

would have carried us through this time of economic inactivity. We’ve got to operate state gover nment like we operHolliman ate our homes. We’re not doing that. Representatives need to understand that the money comes from the people. That’s a sacred trust.” Holliman countered by saying the state votes on a budget every July and that there will always be differing ideas as

to what programs or projects should or shouldn’t receive funding. Holliman said the state is operating on a $19 billion budget and that there is a rainy day fund of $1 billion that is available in the event of an emergency, like a hurricane. “We have to have 61 votes to pass the budget,” said Holliman. “We have to compromise and get everyone together and support it. It’s easy to find an item in the budget and say this is wrong and this is what we should be doing, but you

Board hopefuls present ideas for job creation, education BY ELIOT DUKE Staff Writer

Candidates for county commissioner, sheriff and register of deeds gathered at a Piedmont Crossing forum for a chance to put their best foot forward in effort to sway public opinion leading up to the November election. Four candidates, including two incumbents, running for county commissioner attended the forum where the economy of Davidson County took center stage. Republican incumbents Billy Joe Kepley and Sam Watford were joined by newcomers Todd Yates and Jason Hedrick. With Davidson County possessing a double-digit unemployment rate, turning around a struggling economy was at the forefront of many questions raised to the candidates. Yates and Hedrick both felt improving the county’s infrastructure was a good place to start in spurring economic growth. Hedrick feels the county should focus its attention on attracting as many jobs as possible, regardless of how many at a time. “We have to start small,” Hedrick, the lone Democrat candidate in attendance, said. “We need to be looking at how to get two jobs, 10 jobs, then it’s easier

Recovery Month looks to raise substance abuse awareness BY ERIN WILTGEN

BY ERIN WILTGEN Staff Writer

TIMES PHOTO/ERIN WILTGEN

Davidson County has been selected to participate in a national health survey — one of 15 counties across the country chosen to contribute to this year’s data. The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), which will begin data collection in the county on Monday, is a series of studies dedicated to assessing the health and nutritional status of United States citizens. The survey acts as part of the National Center for Health Statistics, which in turn is part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In a mix of interviews and physical examinations, the survey will study about 476 individuals in the county. “It’s a combination of the randomly selected and they take a look at which counties demographically would represent the nation as a whole,” said Jen Hames, health educator with the Davidson County Health Department, adding that to her

Staff Writer The young man who had just checked into Path of Hope substance abuse treatment facility in Davidson County couldn’t believe his eyes. Attending an event in Winston-Salem celebrating the 21st National Alcohol and Drug Addiction Recovery Month, the young man called his mom and related in disbelief how he and his fellows were enjoying themselves while not under the influence. “These people were having a ball and they weren’t drinking,” said Ann House, an employee at Path of Hope, who attended the event. “He said, ‘That’s one thing I’m learning. I can enjoy myself, I can have fun, and I can remember what I did to have fun.’” Recovery Month, which spans the month of September, seeks to raise awareness about sub-

The new location will be a full-service office, including plenty of parking, five drive-through lanes, and a night drop and ATM lane NewBridge Bank officials said. As a special commemorative gesture, participants at the ground breaking had an opportunity to sign a floor graphic made for the office’s concrete slab foundation. The graphic, which will contain inscriptions of NewBridge Bank’s guiding principles and logo, will remain on

the concrete slab and become part of the floor.

Dear Coach, There seems to be nothing but bad news. The latest economical and social tragedies are leaving us wandering about the stability of our company and our future. What can we do to calm everyone’s fear? — Looking for Hope Dear Looking for Hope, Our hope can be found in knowing that current conditions did not come to stay but to pass. The strength of America is our people. As Americans, we are determined, resourceful and driven to not only survive but to grow and prosper. Consider this, one hundred years ago our society looked very different. There were only 8000 cars in the United States and 144 miles of paved road. The average U.S. worker made between $200 and $400 a year. Only 8 percent of homes had a telephone. In times of challenge we can increase hope by communicating and reinforcing core values. “Things that matter most should never be at the mercy of things that matter least.� – Goethe Reinforce Core Values — If you were to ask organizations the question, “is it important to reinforce core values?� Most likely all of them would answer, “Yes!� In the history of American business success we see that great leaders base decisions on values, not popular opinion.

But often there is a big gap between, “We should.� And “We do.� We know it is the right thing to do, but rarely do we make it happen. Often our language and actions are in complete conflict with what we claim is important, or our core values. We claim to have our values in priority order but our lives reflect little evidence to support our claims. Some organizations publish values that claim they embrace entrepreneurial thinking but then reprimand those for making their own decision. Tom Peters said, “Trust not technology is the issue of the decade.� Core values are the foundation of an organization. The stronger the foundation the higher you can build. Communicating and reinforcing core values helps people to have a base for making right decisions. Creating an atmosphere that reinforces core values also encourages attitudes of ownership. In order for people to be content at work there are human needs to be fulfilled, a sense of accomplishment; the ability to make their own decisions and to be recognized for success. Examine the values of your organization and consider these success tools to strengthen your foundation. Communicate the organizations values, mission, vision and overall global goals, as well as the strategies to achieve the results. If employees understand the “Big Picture� then they are more likely to understand their part and why the organization values their contribution. Educate on the Competition — By helping people understand the competition and the current market place, people can make more informed decisions for the good of the organization. They are also more likely to generate greater results and appeal to

the sense of urgency. Build in Accountability for the Results — When we value innovation and entrepreneurial thinking then we can offer a freedom and independence for the “how to reach the goal� when we build in accountability for the end results. When given to opportunity people will surprise you with great ideas. Often others are closer to the challenge and can add input to create a solution. Don’t assume an idea won’t work just because you didn’t think of it. People get excited when their ideas are implemented.

Everhart, cousin of the groom, will host a wedding shower for the newlywed couple at Park Place Baptist Church Fellowship Hall in Thomasville.

Several weeks ago, my niece Robin and I decided to visit the new art museum located in Raleigh. As we viewed beautiful pieces of magnificent artwork, we came across a painting of this beautiful picnic basket. Inside the basket was this dead duck with its head falling over the side of the basket. The more I looked at it, the more uncontrollable my laugh got. Finally, I got so hysterical that I had to go outside. I laughed until tears rolls down my face. I passed one lady on the way out of the building that commented to her friend, “Wow, this museum must have totally impressed him.� When I finally got outside, I was thinking of a story someone recently told be about a duck. Once there was this little lady who had a duck for her pet. The duck followed her around the house like a puppy. She named her duck Fluffy. Fluffy ate popcorn with her, and she had Fluffy a down-feather basket where he slept. Fluffy loved to play Frisbee. One bright spring morning, the little lady took fluffy outside to play his favorite game, Frisbee. She would throw the Frisbee into the air and Fluffy would wiggle, wiggle, waddle, waddle, to retrieve it. They both played in the yard about 30 minutes when all of a sudden, Fluffy just fell right over. The little lady picked the duck up and headed for the veterinarian’s office thinking to herself, Fluffy had fainted for all the exhaustion. The little lady brought a very limp duck into a veterinarian surgeon’s office. As she laid her pet on the examining table, the vet in his white crispy lab coat, pulled out his bright red stethoscope and placed it on the ducks chest. After a moment or two, the vet shook his head and said sadly, “I’m sorry, your duck Fluffy, has passed away.� The distressed woman wailed, “Are you sure?� “Yes, I am sure your duck is dead,� replied the veterinarian. “How can you be so sure?� she protested. “I mean you

haven’t done any testing on him or anything.� “ He might just be in a coma or something.� The vet rolled his big blue eyes, tuned around and left the room. He returned in a few minutes later with a black Labrador Retriever. As the duck’s owner looked on in amazement, the dog stood on his hind legs, put his front paws on the examination table and sniffed the duck from head to bottom. He then looked up at the vet with sad eyes and shook his head. The vet patted the dog on his head and took it out of the room. A few minutes later he returned with a cat. The cat jumped on the examination table and also delicately sniffed the bird from head to foot. The cat sat back on its haunches, shook its head, meowed softly and strolled out of the room. The vet looked at the little lady and said, “I’m sorry, but as I said, this is most definitely, 100 percent, certifiably, a dead duck.� The vet turned to his computer terminal, hit a few keys and produced a bill, which he handed to the little lady. The duck’s owner, still in shock, took the bill. “$250 to tell me my duck is dead!� she cried. The vet shrugged, “I’m sorry. If you had just taken my word for it, the bill would have been $20, but with the Lab Report and the Cat Scan, it’s now $250.� You know the drill, if you are smiling, you just pass this on, give it to someone else, too!

No Whammies — just good TV VIEWPOINT

ZACH KEPLEY Sports Editor Come on, big bucks, no Whammies, STOP! All of you young whippersnappers in high school and college are probably reading this line with a blank stare on your face. You probably think that guy that comes to cover our games has completely lost his mind. Those born before 1983, however, have a lot of memories come to mind of that great TV game show, “Press Your Luck.” Hosted by Peter Tomarken, Press Your Luck was an exciting game that first aired in the early 1980s, pitting not only three players against each other, but against a giant board of money, prizes, and those nagging, devil-looking critters called Whammies. This is just one of many games from “back in the day” as we call it, that kept audiences at home glued to the television set for hours at a time. Sadly, many of those shows no longer air except for on the Game Show Network. Other games included: “Match Game,” “Name that Tune,” “Password,” “Love Connection,” “The Dating Game,” “Pyramid,” “Hollywood Squares” and “Card Sharks,” just to name a few. And everyone remembers the iconic games that remain in tact today like “Wheel of Fortune,” “The Price is Right,” “Family Feud” and “Jeopardy.” Game shows that come on these days do not even come close to the classics that once circulated the air waves. Sure, I enjoy a good “Deal or no Deal,” “Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader” or “Minute to Win It,” from time to time, but they do not have that “It” factor to keep me coming back every night to watch. Now that I have a child, I have noticed the same can be said for cartoons. While “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse,” “Dora the Explorer,” “SpongeBob” and others are okay cartoons to watch, they are nothing like the cartoons

of my childhood days. Perhaps some of these classics will refresh your memory. Cartoons like “The Smurfs,” “Looney Tunes,” “Inspector Gadget,” “Garfield,” “Pound Puppies,” “Ghostbusters,” “Popeye,” “Heathcliffe,” “The Jetsons,” The Flintstones,” “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” “Scooby Doo,” “Yogi the Bear,” “Tom & Jerry” and “Transformers.” These were cartoons you were not afraid to let your children watch, because you knew they would not cross any boundaries. I have watched many cartoons recently where there are certain lines or actions that should not be included. Small children do not even catch on to some of the borderline stuff being said, so why even include it. Television today just does not compare to what it use to be. Give me “The Andy Griffith Show” any day of the week over all of these ridiculous judge and reality shows we now have. When I was growing up, there was only one judge show and that was “The People’s Court” with Judge Joe Wapner. Now we have “Judge Judy,” “Judge Joe Brown” and every kind of other judge you can think of. I mean, really, do we need to have that many shows? And do not even get me started on the “Maury Show” or “Jerry Springer.” Have we gotten so bored with our lives that we will tune into his show every day just to see who may or may not be the father, or who may or may not have cheated on their significant other? It is getting harder and harder to watch television with your family without having to worry about what the children may see or hear. I am just as guilty as anyone else about watching and polluting my mind with some of the junk on television. But, I would highly encourage those with children to be mindful of what you watch when our precious little ones are around. They want to be just like us, and watching garbage on television is not the example we should be setting. The last thing I want is to have the ultimate whammy — turning on my television set someday to see my child on some judge show, or worse, Maury.

Avoiding debit card disaster VIEWPOINT

LISA WALL Editor In America’s fast-paced society, individuals always are looking for ways to make life more convenient. To accommodate our demand for expediency, businesses have reshaped how they serve their customers. One such response was the invention of bank debit cards. Since their creation, the days of using good old-fashioned greenbacks and the paper check writing system has become a thing of old. Even stores who still accept checks typically manually enter the purchase amount and run the check through a processing unit that instantly completes the transaction from your bank account to theirs. While there still may be a delay in the funds being removed from the account, they usually post immediately to your online banking account and the bank’s processing center. While this new method for handling business transactions may seem to fit our growing need for utility, its flawed system often can prove not only more inconvenient but also more costly. This week, I found out exactly how costly this system for purchases can be. Before coming to work on Wednesday, I stopped at a popular local restaurant to pick up a call-in order. Paying with my bank check card, the waitress swiped my card and then handed me the receipt for signature. When I looked at the purchase amount, I realized that in-

stead of a charge for $7.17 — the cost of a grilled chicken salad — the waitress errantly entered $71.17. I informed her of the mistake and she issued a “refund” to my account for $71.17. With the chicken salad and a set of receipts in hand, I left for work. Thursday morning, I checked my bank account online only to discover that both of the charges from the restaurant were debited from my account, but there was no credit reported for the refund of the money. With the other pending transactions through the week, the errant charge wreaked havoc on my balance and put my account in danger of being overdrawn and incurring overdraft fees. I immediately went to my bank’s local branch and spoke with a customer service representative who verified what I already knew — the money had not been refunded to my account. At the bank’s helpful advice, I went back to the restaurant to inform them of what was happening. With a “too bad, so sad” attitude, the owner erroneously claimed it was the bank who had not credited my account. At that point, I had long surpassed irritation at having the state of my finances jeopardized and at the pulley I seemed to be on between the two businesses. By Friday, the credit had registered to my account, but not before causing me much undue stress and worry. It did prompt me, however, to question the “convenience” of using a bank card. I contacted NewBridge Bank representative Tina Montgomery, who offered some good advice. According to Montgomery, there are some situations in which customers should either use cash for purchases or ask businesses for their bank card policies beforehand. When buying gas, she says, some stations automatically withhold up to $100 in your checking account until the

gas purchase has cleared an account. This often can take several business days, leaving customer’s bank funds in hold until the transaction processes. To avoid such an issue, check with the station attendant first, she says. If you find one that does not hold a deposit for gas purchases, it would be advisable to only use your bank card at that particular station. Otherwise, pay cash. Hotels often operate in the same manner, as they apply a “ghost hold” on a certain amount of funds until after checkout to ensure no additional charges are accrued for room damages or missing amenities. Using a bank card allows them access to charge additional amounts without notice or consent. It’s also a good idea to check with your bank about their policies concerning PIN-based and signaturebased transactions. Purchases made with Visa or MasterCard check-cards (signature-based) are protected by zero-liability policies, which means customers can receive a full refund on disputed charges. Refund policies for PINbased charges are denoted by your bank. It often can take up to five business days for refunds to be credited to your account. Always be sure to check the amount of a purchase before signing or punching in your PIN. Finding the best way to protect your finances may require a bit of research, but in the long run, it’s worth the trouble. And to prevent the chance for human error when keying in purchase amounts, you might want to swing through the ATM and get cash rather than relying on lady luck. Leaving things to chance could prove the most inconvenient decision you could make. Editor Lisa Wall can be reached at 888-3590, or at editor@tvilletimes.com.

FROM PAGE A1 DEBATE From page A1 have to understand that everyone feels differently about different items. It’s true there is pressure to spend what you collect. We keep a rainy day fund and we’ve had to go to that fund in the past to keep things running. It’s important that we keep an eye on the fact that every year is not the same.” Brown pointed out that North Carolina currently has the second highest tax rate in the southeast and trails only Florida when it comes to a gas tax. Brown doesn’t feel that this extra revenue is being spent in the right places. Just how this money is spent is often based on politics and not need, Brown said, referring to the fact that North Carolina is divided into seven regions with each region receiving a certain amount of money. Brown wants to see state money being spent on needs and not wants. “We have the same amount of money going to regions who don’t nearly have the same amount of road traffic compared to other places in the state,” Brown said. “That’s just one way to save money

BOARD From page A1 to get 400. Our number one priority has to be job creation.” Yates said a good way to spur job growth is using what the county already has, specifically Interstate 85. He also complimented Hedrick on “reading his website” when it comes to improving infrastructure. “Interstate 85 has 100,000 cars on it every day,” said Yates. “We need 25,000 of those to stop in Lexington. We do need infrastructure. Davidson

County needs sewer to our major intersections to get some retail businesses there. We can do that, and I think the citizens want us to do that.” Kepley feels small businesses are vital to Davidson County’s economy and supporting them will be a big step to economic recovery. Kepley said he is a hay farmer who uses his 100-acre plot of land for a variety of purposes

knowledge the county has never participated in a study like this before. NHANES studies 5,000 people nationwide each year. The survey chooses individuals who best represent the U.S. population, oversampling people over 60 years old as well as African Americans and Hispanics to give an accurate representation. “Staff will go out and do the surveys at people’s homes,” Hames said. “Then, when they do that, they’ll ask them to participate in the screenings. Everything combined will be done by the middle of November.”

they can recover from this.” According to a national survey conducted by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), the use of illicit drugs increased between 2008 and 2009, rising from 8 percent of the population ages 12 and older to 8.7 percent. As far as alcohol is concerned, the number of adults consuming more than five drinks a day reached 23 percent in 2009, the highest level in a decade, according to the Centers for Disease Control. But despite the high number of individuals suffering from drug and alcohol addictions, very few receive help. In 2009, about 9.3 percent of Americans ages 12 or older — or around 23.5 million people — needed substance abuse treatment. Only 2.6 million individuals received it. “It’s important for all of our community —

schools who have improved and gotten better. We’ve got to make sure everyone understands that we need to educate our students no matter what the economy is. We’re not going to tolerate poor school systems. We have to make sure that our administration understands that we want schools to grow and improve. If we can best do that with three school systems, that’s fine.” Brown is worried that a larger school system will not be as efficient as students tend to perform better in smaller settings. “The state is looking at merging school systems because of financial considerations,” said Brown. “They feel efficiency is the main focus and this is what I’m concerned about. Studies have shown that small school districts are where students learn the best. Is it going to be more efficient? Perhaps, perhaps not. That’s not the general line of thinking. We need to look at the fiscal part of it versus the wellbeing and the education of our children.” The general election is Nov. 2.

— fund your top priorities first and safety is number one. We’ve got to establish priorities.” Holliman countered by saying North Carolina maintains more roads than any state besides Texas, and if not for the gas tax, the money would come from property taxes, like it is in other states where the counties pays for road maintenance. “I’m taking my opponent to task on this,” said Holliman. “Our gas tax is probably the highest in the southeast, but when you compare taxes, you have to make sure you’re comparing apples to apples. In this case, it’s oranges to apples.” Both candidates were asked about whether they supported merging Davidson County’s three school systems into one — a motion that is gaining steam in Raleigh. Holliman said there are 115 school systems in the state’s 100 counties and some representatives are pushing for a 1-to-1 ration. Holliman added that transportation and cafeteria services already have been merged in the county, but whether it’s a good idea or not, remains to be seen. “The main thing to me is how well our schools are performing,” Holliman said. “We have some troubled

that all go toward helping the local economy, whether it’s by sawing lumber or selling trees. “The backbone of our economy is small business,” Kepley said. “Agriculture is the number one ranking business in North Carolina, tourism is second. I think agriculture will be the predominant faction of the local economy in the years to come.”

The interview process includes questions on demographics, socioeconomic status, dietary patterns and health. Touch-screen computers allow respondents to answer more sensitive questions in private. The examination component — performed in mobile centers by a team of a physician, medial and health technicians, and dietary and health interviewers — includes medical, dental and physiological components. Many staff members speak both English and Spanish. Since NHANES encourages study participation, the organization offers transportation to the examination sites if necessary and provides compensation and a medical report to each participant. The information collected from

young people, their families, adults — to be aware of the resources that are available and to celebrate success,” said Mary Jane Akerman, Thomasville City Schools (TCS) wellness coordinator who also is involved in the Thomasville Coalition on Drug and Alcohol Abuse. “It’s important for us as a community to support recovery.” Path of Hope celebrated Recovery Month with an open house on Sept. 3. The United Way organization also took clients to a kickoff in Greensboro at the end of August and the event in Winston-Salem. An in-patient substance abuse treatment center not affiliated with a hospital or medical facility, Path of Hope offers a 28day program following the 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous. House says the organization sticks with a 28-day program as opposed to the more common seven-to 14-day program because it gives patients more time to come to terms with their condition. “In seven to 14 days, their heads are not in

Watford responded by saying that whenever any business comes to the area, even if it’s not directly in Davidson County, the local economy benefits. “Any new business that comes in or around us is good for Davidson County,” said Watford. “Forty percent of our workforce leaves the county every day to go to work.” All four candidates opposed merging the county’s three school districts. Candidates Don Truell, Jeff Switzer, Kevin Williams and Ronald Swicegood did not attend the forum.

Davidson County participants will be combined with that of the other 14 counties to help determine prevalence of major diseases, risk factors for diseases and nutritional status and its association with health and disease prevention. Data also is used to form national height, weight and blood pressure standards. Hames says that, according to the study, each person surveyed stands for about 66,000 people across the country. “If one person represents 66,000 people, it is kind of a neat thing to go through and to be a part of,” she said. “I know how people are with surveys. You don’t want people asking personal questions. But we do encourage anyone who is contacted to go through with it.”

treatment,” House said. “After the first few weeks, they start hearing.” In that 28 days, patients undergo group sessions, Alcohol Anonymous meetings, optional spiritual counseling and recreation activities such as volleyball, softball or walks around Fink Park. “It’s just to get them off the property as a group to see that there is something out there worthwhile,” House said. On the flip side of the coin, Thomasville Coalition on Drug and Alcohol Abuse focuses on prevention, educating the community about the effects of substance abuse. “It’s part of the normal, adolescent process to explore boundaries,” Akerman said. “There’s a natural tendency toward risk-taking in adolescent years. If kids understand the risks of drug addiction and the negative consequences and how drug addiction works, I think they’re better armed to make better decisions.” Other than the prevention programs, TCS also has partnerships with treatment facilities to re-

fer students in case of an addiction situation. “It’s part of good prevention planning to know who to contact and what to do and have those partnerships in place,” Akerman said. “But I’m not aware of a single incident where we’ve identified a young person with an addiction issue, which is terrific, and I hope that means that the prevention education is working.” But whether prevention or recovery, turning away from substance abuse requires an act of will. “Recovery won’t work if you don’t want it to — you have to want it,” House said. “We put our heart and soul in what we do here. We believe in it. I think that every month should be Recovery Month. They should keep making people aware of recovery, that there is something else out there besides drinking and using.” Staff Writer Erin Wiltgen can be reached at 8883576 or at newsdesk@tvilletimes.com.

Discovering God’s will for our lives KEEPING THE FAITH

DOUG CREAMER Guest Columnist I was out washing my wife’s car the other day. One of the neighborhood children was out riding his bike. He road past me several times and then stopped and asked what I was doing. At that moment, I was attempting to get some tar and bugs off the car, so I told him so. Then he said, “Can I ask you a question?” I smiled, looked up at the young boy, and said, “Sure.”

“Where do you go to church?” Normally that’s such an easy question. The problem is I find myself in a state of transition. The church that I have been attending is closed, but a few of us are still meeting informally for prayer and fellowship. How do you explain such a thing to a child’s simple question? I tried, but had to tell him that I was in the process of looking for a new church home. His eyes lit up. “Would you like to come to my church?” he asked eagerly. I asked him about his church and he told me all about it in a child’s excited way. I was so proud of him for talking about his church in such a positive way. He was warm and sincere in his desire to see me come to his church. I decided to leave the option open, which I thought would end the conversation.

“Can I ask you one more question?” I nodded. “If you died tonight, would you go to heaven?” With the biggest smile I could muster I answered, “Yes,” and added, “Could I ask you a question?” He nodded. “Would you go to heaven if you died tonight?” “Yes,” he said with a great big smile of his own. Then he was off riding his bike again. The whole thing left me thinking about something that is very important for all of us to consider. What is God’s will for our lives? Most people who believe in God want to figure out what His will is for their lives so they can be about the business of fulfilling it. It’s difficult for us to know and figure out God’s will for our lives when we can’t talk to God face-to-face. So how do we know? There are a certain

number of things that we can quickly eliminate because the Bible describes them as displeasing to God. If something displeases Him then we can be sure that it is not His. That still leaves many options. I believe that God does have some specific things in mind that He wants each one of us to do. The trouble is those things will challenge us and cause us to change and grow in our walks with Him. Following God always requires faith. If we don’t have to trust God along the way, if we aren’t being challenged to a deeper and closer walk with Him, then I wonder if that is the path for our lives. God knows that we are capable of incredible things if we will allow His spirit to infuse us with His power. That requires faith. I believe that God has

a plan for every area of our lives. He wants us to go to church where we can find a way to contribute. He has a job for us where we can be His light and hope. He wants us to live in neighborhoods where we can tell our neighbors about His love for them. God is constantly trying to reach out to people who don’t know Him and His plan is to use people like you and me. In every area of our lives, from where we live, work, go to school and spend our leisure time, God intends for us to reach out to the people we meet along the way. He wants them to know how much He loves them. He wants them to know that He has a plan and a purpose for their lives. He wants to communicate those things through people like you and me. That’s His plan

and will for our lives. I want to encourage you to think about God’s will for your life. I believe He cares deeply about your circumstances. Even though it might seem like God is not involved, I assure you He is. There is not a detail that escapes His attention. I am not suggesting He brought about negative things in your life, but I believe He can bring something good out of them if you allow Him to work in and through you. Life is not easy, but when you trust God to lead you into His will for your life, you will never walk alone. Doug Creamer teaches Marketing at East Davidson High School.

CLYDE DUPIN Guest Columnist We often talk about the many changes in our society. Some are good and others are destructive. Our culture has had a bad influence on Christianity. I talk almost daily to pastors who feel there is a lack of commitment and a drift from Bible-based values. In the first decade of the 21st Century, the church has come under

constant attack from the media and, recently, from our politicians. It is no longer one nation under God but what do corrupt politicians want. In recent rulings on gay and lesbian marriages and sex education in our schools, we have seen family values disappear. The elite media and politicians have made their favorite pastime bashing Christians. In this time of decline in morality, the Christian church is still the most powerful source for love, compassion and service to mankind. When there are hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes and other disasters, the church is there first and is still helping when others have departed. The Catholic and Protestant churches are always on the front line to help those in need.

In Haiti, many are struggling to survive as thousands remain homeless. When most of the news media have departed and government organizations are controlled by a corrupt government, the church is still at work. From all over America, churches are sending teams with food, money and faith to help rebuild this devastated country. You can help by sending money and being part of a team to help rebuild churches, orphanages and homes. They need more than shelter, food and medicine. They need the message of the Gospel that offers hope and faith in God. I have been to Haiti many times and the people are open to the truth of God’s Word. The Christian church is the only hope for their future.

Thomasville may have needed a little time to get used to playing at Cushwa Stadium for the first time this season, but once the Bulldogs did, the rest of the night was home sweet home. Quin Riley’s two touchdowns helped Thomasville overcome a sluggish start on both sides of the ball in a 27-7 victory against the Davie County War Eagles, improving the Bulldogs record to 5-0. THS trailed for much of the first half before Riley and the defense found their rhythm, helping the Bulldogs defeat a War Eagles squad that had plenty of offensive weapons. “They’re dangerous and they have great skill people,” THS assistant coach Dickie Cline said of the War Eagles. “They did a great job in the first half and it’s hard to simulate all of that. Our defense settled down and did a great job, and offensively we were able to control the clock. That was the key, keeping the ball out of their hands. We played good, hard-nosed, physical football.” Davie County made an early statement that the War Eagles came to Cushwa Stadium ready to win.

East fights back for 44-35 win

Ledford falls 13-0 in OT

BY ZACH KEPLEY Sports Editor TRINITY — If the East Davidson football team that showed up in the second half of Friday’s game would show up for a full 48 minutes, head coach Bryan Lingerfelt would be one happy man. After getting knocked back on their heels trailing by 14 at halftime, EDHS kept their composure, storming back in the second half to defeat Wheatmore 44-35. “That is the team that I know we have got,” Lingerfelt said. “That is a good builder for the guys.” Wheatmore was ahead 28-14 at intermission, largely in part to a three touchdown, 168-yard

rushing effort by Josh Rickert. But the Golden Eagles used one sensational minute to get right back into contention. Jamar H a r rington started the electrifying c o m e Lingerfelt b a c k , taking the opening kickoff from his own 15, cutting to the outside for an 85-yard return. Taylor Warren’s extra point made it 28-21. The magic minute for the Golden Eagles continued on the first play from scrimmage for Wheatmore, when Rickert fumbled the ball away

at his won 39, and the East defense recovered. One play is all the offense would need, with Warren tossing a perfect ball to Tyler Lequire in the heart of the end zone for the score. The PAT would fail, leaving East a point shy of a tie with 11:17 left in the third quarter. “We (coaches) did not want to panic and get them panicked,” said Lingerfelt. “We knew we had time.” The Golden Eagles made quick work again moments later, this time getting a bit lucky. Warren was hurried by three Wheatmore defenders and heaved up a jumpball on the left sideline. Somehow, receiver

PANTHERS ON THE PROWL Ledford’s Cady Ray passes to a teammate in Thursday’s win. See Story, Page B3.

BY JASON QUEEN Special to the Times

Ledford and West Davidson’s football teams are coached by former baseball coaches, and they engaged in what resembled a pitcher’s duel Friday night in Wallburg. When West’s James McCandies finally got something to hit, he didn’t miss. McCandies scrambled for a 3-yard touchdown run on the last play of regulation, then scored on another 3-yard run in overtime to stake the Dragons to a 13-10 non-conference victory over the Panthers. The loss, which dropped Ledford to 1-3, negated another impressive performance by running back De Greene. The junior rumbled for 177 yards on 31 carries, providing the bulk of the Panthers’ offense. Ledford coach Chris Adams was clearly disappointed to walk away with a loss. “Our defense played lights-out,” Adams said. “Offensively they’ve got a really good package, and our defense played hard and stayed in there.” Both teams struggled to get much going in the first half and headed to the locker rooms in a scoreless deadlock. Ledford’s best scoring opportunity came on a 14-play drive that took over nine minutes off the clock, but the Panthers stalled at the West 27. The Dragons had a golden opportunity later in the second quarter after a shanked punt gave them possession at the Panthers’ 33, but quarterback James McCandies fumbled on second down and Tola Odedere recovered to kill the threat. Greene broke the gridlock with a 23-yard run on a counter play on fourth and three midway through the fourth quarter. The touchdown was set up by a bad West punt. A McCandies’12-yard keeper set up first and goal at the three with seven seconds left, and he scored on a draw on the last play of regulation to force overtime. Zach Gilliam kicked a field goal to give the Panthers a momentary 10-7 lead. Ledford’s defense came up with a stop for a loss, but then were called for pass interference to give the Dragons first and goal at the 5. After a two-yard gain, McCandies ran a quarterback sneak and fell into the end zone with the winning score.

Checking out hats and knives OFF THE PORCH

DICK JONES Outdoor Columnist A while back, someone told me they needed a fedora hat an occasion; they decided to look on a search engine for the word fedora and the number one response was a story I’d written about wearing hats. I like hats. I’ve been a hat man for about 25 years now and, if given a choice between living without sunglasses and living without a hat, I’d take the hat every time. Of course, there are two kinds of hats for me. I wear a felt hat from September to April and switch over to a straw for the warmer months. My favorite felt hat is a crushable Outback wide brim heavy wool fedora and it still looks good after at least 15 years. I own other felt hats and wear them some, but the Outback is my favorite. Straw hats are not so durable. Until this summer, my favorite straw hat was a Eddie Bauer Panama straw that I bought in the days when Eddie Bauer sold

men’s clothes. I say this as a joke, knowing full well that the store that was once a fine outfitter for real outdoorsmen now sells clothes to urban denizens who want to look like they do things outdoors. That old Eddie Bauer hat lasted a couple of years until is simply wore out. It was soft, light, and comfortable. It looked good, at least for the first year, and was a truly functional summer hat. When it wore out, I bought another one and when that one was used up, the Eddie Bauer stores had morphed into selling only fashionable clothes. Of course, Abercrombie and Fitch were also once real outdoor outfitters selling clothes, boots, and guns to guys like Ruark, Hemingway, and Jack O’Conner; look what they’ve become. Since that time, I’ve bought at least a dozen straw hats and while some were relatively serviceable, none were durable enough to last a whole summer. I admit, I’m hard on hats but it’s been frustrating because I’ve not been able to find anything near as good as the old Eddie Bauer straw. This year, I found a real straw hat that can take what I can dish out. At SHOT Show last January, my wife, Cherie, talked to the folks at Sunday Afternoons, a company that makes casual outdoor clothes but really is in the hat business. This spring, they

sent me a straw fedora that immediately showed promise. Called the Havana hat, it had a 2.75 inch brim, it was crushable and it looked like a straw hat should look. Six months later, this hat still looks good. It’s been in the Roanoke River and Badin Lake, it’s spent multiple days in the hot sun, it’s been crushed for hours under luggage on a car trip and Larry, my lab, has accidently taken a few naps on it. It has some sweat stain but otherwise looks as good as the day I took it out of the box. There are no signs of wear, even at the crown where most straw hats wear out within a couple of months. If you buy one of these and don’t agree it’s the most functional straw hat you’ve ever owned, let me know and I’ll buy your lunch. Kershaw Speedsafe Knives Since about third grade, I’ve been a knife man. My first knife was a largish folder that came from a display case on the Carolina Beach Fishing Pier. My family went to Carolina Beach for the family vacation/fishing trip every year during the full moon of October. Of course I didn’t have the money to buy it when it first caught my eye but this knife so captivated me that by the time we returned the following year I had set back enough money to buy it out of the display for the

princely sum of $1.49. By the time the weeklong trip was over, my purchase was somewhat dull and rusty but I kept it for years. The only time I’m without a knife in my pocket is when I’m in a place with a metal detector. When I fly, my Leatherman and my pocket knife are taken out of the bag and on my person before I get out of baggage claim. I simply feel naked without them. About 20 years ago, I learned the value of self opening knives. The ability to access the blade without having to use both hands can literally be a lifesaver. There are legal implications involved with carrying self opening knives. In North Carolina, it’s legal to possess an automatic knife but it’s illegal to conceal that knife. There are numerous knives that use a raised tab on the side of the blade that can be opened with one hand, but they don’t really work well for me. My first automatics were Bokers, they were heavy and eventually had problems with the release. I then got a Benchmade, lighter weight, good trigger mechanism, but expensive. Both of these knives were true automatics or switchblades with a push button release and a safety. At some point, I discovered Kershaw. Kershaw makes a

Middle hitter Stevi Williams reaches above the net to hit a ball across to the Northeast Guilford side on Thursday in Mid-Piedmont 3-A action.

Ledford not sharp in win BY ZACH KEPLEY Sports Editor WALLBURG — Ledford volleyball coach Kara Berrier was not sure what to say about her team’s three-game win over visiting Northeast Guilford on Thursday. Despite not losing a single game, the Lady Panthers looked nothing like a 12-1 team. A win is still a win, though, and Berrier will gladly take the 25-16, 26-24, 25-13 decision over Mid-Piedmont Conference foe Northeast Guilford. “You could just tell the energy was not there,” Berrier said. “It at least was a great opportunity for all of our team members to contribute to this win. I am proud of my girls for getting their second win in the conference and we are going to keep pushing.” Ledford seemed like themselves in the first game, going about business as usual. Somewhere during the three-minute break in between the first and second game, though, the Lady Panthers lost some of their focus. A spirited effort by the

Lady Rams led by the towering Kiana Smith in the second set, turned an otherwise easy night for the Panthers into a fight for their lives. Up 21-15, Ledford did not look sharp, but were doing just enough to stay out of reach. But the lapse in concentration over the next few points almost cost them a two-set lead. Northeast reeled off five straight points to trail by one — most of the points being Panther miscues. That was all Berrier needed to see, sending in a handful of fresh players while the others went to the bench to think about things. Ledford scored the next point on Sara Katherine Kirkpatrick’s kill, but the Rams backed it up with two of their own to tie the score. Kirkpatrick’s kill off a wall of blockers regained the lead for LHS, and the Panthers went on to survive the set with Stevi Williams ending it with a kill. Strong serving from Kaitlyn Otey put Ledford up 10-1 in the third set and the Panthers were

never challenged again. “ The third game looked a little bit better, but it was not a great night,” Berrier said. Still, she could not be more pleased with the events prior to Thursday’s game. “This has been a strong year so far and I have girls that can play, and are smart and actually think about what they are doing before they do it,” she said. “That is something we haven’t necessarily excelled at in the past.” Otey finished with 23 service points, Kirkpatrick had seven kills and Ray handed out 11 assists.

SPORTS SNAPSHOT IN TIME

Tar Heels hope to execute better on special teams BY BRIANA GORMAN Durham Herald Sun CHAPEL HILL — When Georgia Tech visits Kenan Stadium on Saturday, there is one area the Tar Heels hope to see a drastic improvement from the first game — special teams. UNC allowed LSU’s Patrick Peterson to return three kickoffs and four punts for 257 yards, including an 87-yard punt return for a touchdown, in the 30-24 loss on Sept. 4 that came down to the final play. “I really felt like we kind of let the team down,” said senior Ryan Taylor, one of the veteran leaders on special teams. “I think we didn’t give the team a great chance to win, so Coach [Butch] Davis has definitely made that a point of emphasis these two weeks.” The main reason for the poor punt and kick coverage had a lot do with the absence of 13 players, including eight starters. That meant players who usually were on the special teams units moved into starting roles, while young, inexperienced players filled in on punt and kickoff return coverage. For most, it was their first chance to participate in punt and kickoff returns at full speed since those drills usually are not run at 100 percent in practice because of the concern for injuries. “We made some mistakes in the return game, both punt returns and kick returns,” said Davis, who also noted his punters hang times need to get better. “We made some mistakes as far as lane responsibilities covering the football. ... “And I think some of the guys that played in that game were thrust into the idea that, ‘My god, I’ve got to play. I’ve got to start on special teams. I thought I was going to eat ice and drink Gatorade on the sidelines.’ “ As of Wednesday, the Tar Heels still expected to be without 12 players against Georgia Tech. Yet Taylor said he expects to see a dramatic improvement in the special teams after one game. He said the main problem was the inexperience among the younger guys and knowing to stay in position, no matter what. “There are a lot of guys that might have gotten out of their lanes or might have lost containment when they were supposed to be making the ball go back inside to everybody else,” Taylor said. “Just trying to make sure everybody knows exactly what they’re supposed to be doing and making sure they’re do-

ing that and not trying to do anything extra. “If everybody does what they’re supposed to do on every play, it should work out well.” UNC did not only struggle with just its return coverage, but also it’s returning. A year ago, Greg Little, Da’Norris Searcy and Johnny White handled most of the return duties. But with Little and Searcy ineligible and White’s offensive responsibilities increased, sophomores Jheranie Boyd and Hunter Furr are the new return men. Boyd, who has not returned kicks or punts since high school, finished with three kickoff returns for 65 yards, while Furr’s one kickoff return was for 4 yards after bobbling the catch in the end zone and then electing to try and run upfield. Boyd said he was nervous before the LSU game, but he feels more confident headed into Saturday’s matchup. “It gave me a cushion for this game,” Boyd said. Taylor said the Tar Heels have practiced special teams a lot over the past two weeks, and he expects to see a large jump from the LSU game. And while the Yellow Jackets haven’t had a Peterson-like return threat in their first two games, UNC wants to make sure it remains that way. “It kind of put a dagger in us in the LSU game because if we played better on special teams, we maybe could have come out with a win,” Boyd said. “I feel like that’s going to motivate us to do better this week.”

ATTACK FROM BEHIND A former Thomasville defender tackles the opposition from the back side in a game at Cushwa Stadium.

DOGS From page B1 thing like that before. He’s getting used to it.” Thomasville caught a break on its opening possession after Adam Smith picked off a Sam Nelson pass but fumbled the ball right back to Sharaun Mouzone at the Bulldogs 28-yard line. THS parlayed the good fortune into a 32-yard Lawson Hodges field goal with 2:30 remaining in the first quarter. The Bulldogs finally surged ahead in the second quarter on the heels of a 10-play, 64-yard drive. Riley broke free on fourth and two from the War Eagles 30 for a touchdown, giving THS its first lead. “When they scored first I knew we were going to have to buckle down,” Nelson said. “I thought we ran the ball well and I was able to pick it up in the second half. If we can pass the ball, [Riley] will be able to do his thing. He does it without us passing the ball well.” Nursing a slim three-point lead, the Bulldogs opened the second half strong, stringing together

an 11-play drive that ended with a 23-yard Hodges field goal. A 35yard pass from Nelson to Shaquan Johnson on third and 10 from the War Eagles 44 set up the kick. The defense then forced a quick threeand-out from the War Eagles, putting the offense right back on the field, where Riley started finding some creases. The senior sprang a 40-yard run from midfield and finished what he started with a four-yard burst up the middle for his second score of the night and a 20-7 THS advantage late in the third quarter. “Coaches have been working with me on keeping my stamina up,” said Riley. “I’m getting better as a tailback. Coaches kept telling me to be patient and wait for the left guard to come around and pick up that block. I did exactly what they said and it worked.” Nelson and Johnson connected once more with 4:28 to go in the fourth quarter for a 26-yard touchdown that put the game completely out of reach for Davie County. Riley finished with 190 yards on 32 carries and Nelson added 95 through the air. Thomasville hosts Asheboro next week for Homecoming.

EAST From page B1

Blake Dodd slid his way in between two defenders, snatching the ball out of the air and taking it the rest of the way for the score. East’s Justin Weavil picked up an interception off a tipped ball to get the ball back, and East pieced together an eight play drive to go up 13 on a Warren two-yard plunge. Every time there was a big play, it was a senior that had a hand in it. “Seniors are who wins these football games at East Davidson,” said Lingerfelt. “Our seniors have to step up and they did.” Rickert (250 yards) scored on a two-yard run to get Wheatmore within six, but Warren nailed a 42-yard field goal to lock down the win. Ray Tolley and Dodd accounted for the first two East scores on runs of four and five yards, respectively, in the first half. East takes on rival Ledford at home next Friday night.

series of semi-self opening knives for lack of a better term. The knives are designed by Ken Onion and many bear related names like Scallion, Leek, and Chive. The design, called Speedsafe, allows easy one handed opening without a trigger or button which in most states is the definition of a switchblade. Instead of a pushbutton or trigger, the back, bottom portion of the blade extends through the handle and allows the user to push on it to pivot the blade. Not easy to describe but very easy to operate. It’s the simplest and most ingenious system I’ve ever seen for opening a knife and it works equally well for left handers. I tested two knives with the Speedsafe opening system. The Scallion 1620 ST is a mid-sized pocket knife that allows for easy carry. It has an anodized aluminum handle and a 2 ¼ inch, partially serrated stainless blade. Slim enough to carry in dress pants and sharp enough to shave with, it’s a great everyday knife and lists for $54.95. I also tested a Packrat Serrated. The Packrat has a black checkered composite handle and a 3 ¼ inch, partially serrated stainless blade. It’s a heavier knife than the Scallion and is approximately the same size and weight as the Benchmade Reflex I carried for years. I like the handle shape and size and it’s probably a better all around choice than the Scallion for general outdoor use due to the larger blade and handle. MSRP in the Packrat is $89.95. I found both of these knives to be extremely well made with little or no play between the blade and handle when opened. They stay sharp and, once dull are easier to sharpen then more expensive knives. Both of these knives have a section of serrated blade next to the handle with a regular section of edge on the tip. I don’t like serrated knives in the kitchen but for field and boat use, a serrated section is a very good idea. Even a really sharp conventional edge cuts slowly through rope and when a rope or line needs to be cut, serration can cut through in a fraction of the time. Most fine cutting is done with the tip of a blade anyway so the serration next to the handle is of little consequence. These are quality knives that’re as handy as a belt knife without the bulkiness of having a knife hanging on your side. They are quality cutlery that’ll give a lifetime of service and the opening system is simple and ingenious. I expect I’ll be carrying one or the other from now on.

N.C. Central to face toughest opponent yet BY JOE JOHNSON Durham Herald-Sun

DURHAM — When the decision was made by N.C. Central to move up to the Football Championship Subdivision, getting football games such as today’s matchup against Appalachian State was part of the growth process for the Eagles and Coach Mose Rison, who has guided the team during this transition period. NCCU has endured some bumpy patches during the past four seasons, but Rison said he can see the progress his team has made. Now the Eagles are getting ready to take on their highest ranked opponent since Rison became coach in 2007, as Appalachian State is ranked No. 1 in one poll and No. 2 in the other. “The thing I like about it is that we’re playing the No. 2 ranked team in the country, in some polls No. 1,” Rison said. “We get to go up there and play. We will not be in awe. It won’t be a situation where we will be overmatched. It used to be that way. It’s not going to be that way anymore.” One of the reasons Rison is confident about this is because NCCU is closing the talent gap through the increased number of scholarships the team now has. NCCU isn’t at the FCS cap of 63 scholarships, but it is within reach for next season, according to Rison. He also has enough talent in the twodeep lineup so that all but one freshman — holder Jacob Russell — is being redshirted this season. Rison said playing Appalachian State a year ago was a learning experience for his team because of the depth of tradition the Mountaineers possess.

“Anytime you play a team for the first time, a lot of what you’re doing is a learning experience,” Rison said. “We had a game plan going into that game, and we were able to go back afterwards and evaluate how we did with the plan. “Now that we’ve played them, we have a better understanding of what they do.” Matching up physically with Appalachian State is another step in NCCU’s progession. Rison said his team is bigger and stronger than when it lost to the Mountaineers 55-21 in 2009. “The kids up front on both sides of the ball will be able to play with them this year,” Rison said. “I expect it to be a very physical football game.” The defensive line is anchored by Teryl White (6-5, 295), while the offensive line has three starters at 300 pounds or more — center James Frye (6-3, 325), right tackle Eric Stanley (6-5, 357) and left tackle Dominique Moore (6-3, 300). And there are three reserves who possess similar girth — Shaun Millien (6-8, 380), Mario Brice (6-0, 322) and Daniel Harrison (6-4, 345). The Eagles will have two players back who were suspended for the WinstonSalem State game. Charles Goodwin and Roger Stewart were involved in an on-field altercation in the opener against Johnson C. Smith and could not play against the Rams. But NCCU did lose backup safety Rickie Hubbard for the season after he injured a knee while covering a kickoff against Winston-Salem State. Backup linebacker Rakeem Vick also is out of the lineup after suffering a head injury against the Rams, and Rison said there is no reason to rush Vick back because of the nature of his injury.
