Once the foundation for the house is laid, the Carpentry 2 class from THS will construct most of its wooden frame. Later, an electrical class from Ledford will arrive to add and connect electrical wire. Each year, the classes may work together on three Habitat houses, Brodar said. They also do projects for individuals and local governments. “They love coming out here,” Brodar said. “It’s dirty work, it’s hard work, but it’s real gratifying

While helping build the foundation of a house for a family in need, some local high school students are also laying the footings for their future careers. Ten students from the Masonry 2 class at Thomasville High School have been working daily on the beginning stages of a Habitat for Humanity house. Dwight Brodar, who has been teaching masonry and carpentry at THS for three years, says that the ser-

vice work helps the students to learn valuable lessons outside of the classroom. “It gives them first-hand experience, other than working in the lab,” Brodar said. “I can work them in the lab all day long using training mortar, but it’s not until they get out here on an actual job site ... that they get a good feel for

A Thomasville teen found that a third visit from the Davidson County Sheriff ’s Office was definitely not the charm when it came to his involvement in allegedly assaulting females. Rhodes For the third time in the past three months, Chase Anthony Rhodes, 19, of 359 Stacey St., has been arrested by DCSO on charges of sexually attacking a female acquain-

tance. Rhodes has been charged with two counts of attempted second degree sexual offense and one count of assault on a female for an incident that detectives allege occurred in the spring. Rhodes is currently being held in jail after being issued a $20,000 secured bond. He is scheduled to appear in Lexington District Court on Sept. 30. “It seems to be more of the same problem,” Sheriff David Grice said. “I can’t really say too much, but it’s a situation we’ll continue to investigate. I think he is taking advantage of some of the peo-

Cycle North Carolina to stop in Chair City BY ELIOT DUKE Staff Writer Thomasville can expect to see an economic boost come through the Chair City next week in the form of a two-wheeled caravan. Cycle North Carolina’s “Mountain to the Coast” ride will make an overnight stop in Thomasville on Tuesday, bringing more than 1,000 cyclists to town and an estimated $75,000 in revenue to a city that sorely needs some positive economic news. “This is a big event that will bring 1,000-plus

people to the town,” Mark Scott, Thomasville Tourism Director, said. “It’s a great opportunity for businesses and civic organizations and people who work together for the same common interest in trying to be proud of our city and show it a positive light. You figure $75,000 in a period of about 16 hours is nothing to sneeze about.” Thomasville was a morning pit stop for the event three years ago, and made an good impression with its hospitality efforts towards the cyclists.

College policy changes for immigrants BY KARISSA MINN Staff Writer

Undocumented immigrants will be allowed to enroll in North Carolina community colleges next year, the State Board of Community Colleges decided last week. On Sept. 18, the board voted 16to-1 on the policy, which will take effect April 1, 2010. To attend one of the system’s 58 campuses, an undocumented immigrant must be a graduate of a U.S. high school, must pay out-of-state tuition and may not displace a North Carolina or U.S. resident from a class or program.

Myra Thompson, public information officer for Davidson County Community College, said that she hadn’t heard of any undocumented students wanting to enroll at that school so far. “I don’t think this will change that much, because out-of-state tuition is so high,” Thompson said. “I think it would put it out of the price range of most of our prospective students.” Out-of-state tuition is $7,700 per academic year, compared to $1,600 for in-state tuition. Undocumented students also would be barred from taking certain courses, such as those that are part of certifica-

tion programs or that have limited admissions. Dr. R. Scott Ralls, president of the N.C. Community College System, said in his report to the board that the new policy still places more restrictions on the admission of undocumented immigrants than those of several other states. “In my opinion, it is a policy that is the right thing to do, because it maintains that all-important hope for students who were brought to our country as minors and who are graduates of our high schools,” Ralls said. “It keeps the path to a

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The last payment of two federal grants to High Point will provide funds for the final bills connected with construction of Mendenhall Station that serves the Furniture Market, U.S. Rep. Howard Coble (R-NC) announced today.

The funds released today, from the Bus and Bus Facilities Program, were the final payments from the appropriation obtained by the 6th District representative. One grant was $1,354,320 and the other was $329,000. Mendenhall Station is named for Judy Mendenhall, the former mayor of High Point and president of the High Point Market Authority.

County unemployment rate falls BY ELIOT DUKE Staff Writer Unemployment dropped in 90 of North Carolina’s 100 counties in August, including Davidson. According to statistics released by the North Carolina Employment Security Commission on Friday, the unemployment rate in Davidson County fell to 13.1 percent last month, dropping three tenths of a percent from July. There are currently 10,210 people who are unemployed and actively seeking work in the county out of a workforce of 78,054. “Rates have decreased in many of these counties for various reasons,� ESC Chairman Moses Carey Jr. said. “Most counties experienced some loss in the labor force. People moving away and looking for work in other areas, students returning to school or, some people exhausting their benefits, are reasons for such declines. This can have an impact on the unemployment rate.�

Local man arrested for assaulting officer TIMES STAFF REPORT

A Thomasville man who tried to skip out on paying his bill now has more on his plate than he envisioned when he walked out on Denny’s Wednesday night. According to a press release from Thomasville Police Department, William Michael Tuberville Jr., 20, of 308 Warner St. Apt. C, walked out of the Denny’s Restaurant on Sedgehill Drive without paying his $11.93 dinner bill. TPD officer Adam Kallfelz, who was eating at the restaurant at the time, followed Tuberville into the parking lot and advised him to stop. Tuberville ignored the officer’s pleas and got into his vehicle and began to drive off. Kallfelz was dragged by the vehicle as he was trying to detain the suspect. Kallfelz managed to grab the steering wheel and veer the car into a curb in the parking lot, stopping the vehicle. Kallfelz was dragged approximately 70 feet. Tuberville was arrested and charged with felony assault with a deadly weapon on a government official and defrauding an innkeeper. He was issued a $27,000 secured bond and is scheduled to appear in Thomasville District Court on Oct. 9.

The number of people employed in Davidson County did go up in August by 28 people while the number of unemployed decreased by 314 workers. Davidson County is still above the state unemployment rate of 10.7 percent. The ESC has paid out more than $84 million in unemployment insurance benefits to Davidson County since last September. Friday’s numbers do not reflect the recent announcement that Diebold is consolidating its Lexington plant, leaving 80 people out of work. The layoffs, announced to employees on Thursday, are expected to be completed by the end of the year as the company shifts its ATM manufacturing operations to Greensboro and overseas. Work will be transferred to the company’s Greensboro plant on Pleasant Ridge Road. Diebold, an Ohio-based company, will continue manufacturing security equipment in Lexington. “They haven’t come to us and asked for any of our services yet,� said

ESC spokesperson Larry Parker. “It could be a couple of months before it shows up in our numbers. If a company lays off, say, 200 employees, at one time, it will show in the following month. If it’s a staggered layoff, it takes a little while to show up.� Scotland County had

the highest unemployment rate in the state at 16.5 percent with Currituck County reporting the lowest at 5.1 percent. Forsyth, Guilford and Randolph counties also saw a drop in unemployment of at least three tenths of a percent from July.

How to lose friends VIEWPOINT

DAVID HARSANYI Syndicated Columnist The United States does not negotiate with terrorists — but we insist that Israel do so without preconditions. We will not get entangled in the distasteful internal politics of Iran — but we define Israel’s borders. We will remove missile defense systems in Europe so we do not needlessly provoke our good friends in Russia — but we have no compunction nudging Israel to hand over territory with nothing in return. This week, President Barack Obama spoke to the United Nations General Assembly and insisted that Israel and the Palestinians negotiate “without preconditions” (well, excluding the effective precondition that Israeli settlements are “illegitimate,” according to the administration — so no preconditions means feel free to rocket Israel while you talk). This tact, Obama hopes, will lead to “two states living side by side in peace and security — a Jewish state of Israel with true security for all Israelis and a viable, independent Palestinian state with contiguous territory that ends the occupation that began in 1967 and realizes the potential of the Palestinian people.” Hate to break the news to you, but there already exists a Jewish state of Israel with true security for all Israelis. This security is attained through a perpetual war against terrorism and Arab aggression. And the most recent time Israel withdrew from disputed lands without preconditions to allow the potential of the Palestinian people to shine through was in Gaza. The Arabs, hungering for the light of freedom, used the gift to elect Hamas — now an Iranian proxy and always a terror organization — to rain rockets down on the civilians who voted to allow the first democratic Arab entity in history. If Obama expects Israel to end the “occupation” that began in 1967, he also is demanding Israel abandon parts of Jerusalem. If he really anticipates that a Palestinian state will be “contiguous territory,” what he expects is that Israel can’t be contiguous. And when he uses the word

“occupation,” he is negotiating for the Palestinians. None of the lands up for discussion are “occupied” territory. The president, a highly educated man, knows well that there never has been an ultimate agreement on borders, nor has there ever, in history, been a Palestinian state to occupy. There is an ethical question that the president might want to answer, as well. Why would the United States support an arrangement that scrubs the West Bank of all its Jews? Why is it so unconscionable to imagine that Jews could live among Muslims in the same way millions of Arabs live within Israel proper? Not many international agreements feature ethnic cleansing clauses. (Isn’t this, after all, about peace?) Of course, we all know why: Jews would be slaughtered, bombed from their homes and rocketed from their schools. This indisputable fact reveals the fundamental reality of these negotiations. Instead of reaffirming the importance of our relationship with Israel, Obama has renewed our membership in the United Nations Human Rights Council, presided over by exemplars of selfdetermination and human dignity, such as Libya, Syria and Angola. The hobbyhorse of this organization is accusing Israel of war crimes, which isn’t surprising. Noted intellectual George Gilder argues in his most recent book, “The Israel Test,” that where you stand on Israel — not always, but in general — is an indication about how you feel about the ideals of liberty and capitalism. The debate over Israel, he claims, is the manifestation of a deeper moral and ideological war around the world. “The real issue,” writes Gilder, “is between the rule of law and the rule of leveler egalitarianism, between creative excellence and covetous ‘fairness,’ between admiration of achievement versus envy and resentment of it.” This nation has no inherent duty to wage endless wars to secure freedom for the world’s masses — often against their will. But shouldn’t it stand with those nations that already value the basic tenets of a free and peaceful society? Or are all people now equally deserving of our friendship simply because they exist?

Immigrant values VIEWPOINT

LINDA CHAVEZ Syndicated Columnist For the first time in decades, the number of foreignborn individuals living in the United States declined last year, according to new numbers released by the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey. The drop was small, from 12.6 percent of the U.S. population to 12.5 percent of the population, but it is significant nonetheless. It suggests that not only are fewer people coming here but also some who are already here have decided to leave. But the reason for the decline may be nothing to cheer about. It may have less to do with tougher border enforcement effectively keeping out illegal immigrants than it does with a shrinking economy making the country a less enticing destination. Immigrants always have been the canaries in the mine shaft — an early warning system about the health of the U.S. economy. By middecade, informal networks of immigrants in the U.S. had already begun to send word-of-mouth messages back home that job opportunities in the U.S. were drying up. As a result, immigration from Mexico — the country responsible for about a third of all immigration to the U.S. — began a steep decline and is now down overall by about 40 percent. And according to estimates from Mexico’s National Survey of Employment and Occupation, Mexicans have been returning home at a rate of more than 400,000 a year since 2006, at the very time that fewer Mexicans have been choosing to leave Mexico for the U.S. But what about those who

remain? The greatest passion generated during immigration debates over the past few years has concerned illegal immigration, but many people also have voiced fears that Hispanic immigrants, even those who came legally, are somehow different from all previous immigrants and never will move into the American mainstream. The Heritage Foundation’s Robert Rector, for example, warned in one study that the descendants of Mexican immigrants will constitute a permanent underclass, dependent on welfare and unable to carry their fair share of the tax burden, discouraging lawmakers from considering changes to immigration law that would allow more Mexicans to immigrate, even if they were to do so legally. A recent study by the Pew Hispanic Center, however, suggests that many of these fears are overblown and that children of Latino immigrants are doing well on most measures. They fare better on most health indicators (except obesity) than native-born Americans, for example, despite being less likely to be covered by health insurance. Most importantly, they are about as likely to grow up in two-parent households as whites — 73 percent, compared with 77 percent for whites. They graduate high school at rates slightly less than non-Hispanic whites (80 percent, compared with 92 percent of whites), but almost half go on to attend college. And those who graduate from college actually earn slightly more than their native-born counterparts. The overwhelming majority of Hispanics born in the U.S. to immigrant parents are able to speak English well, which is key to their successful integration into American society. While the Census Bureau counts many Hispanic immigrants as linguistically isolated — unable to speak English well enough to function in daily life — they aren’t unique in that respect. In

fact, Asian immigrants are slightly more linguistically isolated than Latinos. Yet few people seem to fret that Asians never will assimilate. Contrary to the impression that Hispanics remain poor no matter how long they’ve lived in the U.S., upward mobility is still the rule, not the exception. Twice as many third-generation Hispanics live in households with incomes more than $75,000 a year (nearly onethird of all third-generation Hispanics do so) than live in households with incomes less than $25,000 a year. The one worrisome trend among American-born Hispanics is the same demographic trend that plagues African-Americans and growing numbers of poor whites: rising out-of-wedlock births and an increasing number of children who grow up in female-headed households. “Third-generation” (which means third-generation or higher) Hispanics are far more likely than those of the first or second generation to grow up in households headed by unmarried mothers, with a majority, 52 percent, of such children growing up in homes without their fathers present. Assimilation, unfortunately, includes adopting more lax attitudes toward sex and childbearing outside marriage, and the surest way to remain poor is to have a baby before you’re married. But it’s difficult to blame this trend on immigration. Most of those we call “thirdgeneration” Hispanics aren’t even the grandchildren of immigrants but are made up mostly of Mexican-Americans whose families have been here for generations. Indeed, immigrant family values may be exactly what all Americans — Hispanic and non-Hispanic alike — need more of, not less.

FROM PAGE A1 SOLID From page A1 work.” Leroy Bannett, who is a junior at THS, has always been interested in construction and wants to pursue it as a trade. He said he loves coming out to the work site as a part of his class. “It’s fun,” Bannett said. “It teaches you a lot of things besides sitting in a classroom. You actually get hands-on experience.” He says that he likes working in the field to get the satisfaction of seeing a finished product, but it means even more for him to know that it’s going toward a good cause. Bannett, who lives on the Baptist Children’s Home Mills Home campus, also helps out at the fire department. “I think it’s something great to help people who don’t have that much,” he said. “A lot of people don’t understand that, but when you get put in

that situation, you do.” This year, the masonry and carpentry programs at the school have craft certification, so that students will be given credentials to prove their experience under certified instructors. This will give them an advantage in the job market, Brodar said, because industry employers will easily be able to see the students’ proficiency and accomplishments. Some of the students aren’t interested in a career in construction, and simply take the classes because they like them. Brandon Turner, a senior at East Davidson, said he became interested in construction when he helped his father with stonework on their house. “I would like to have this hands-on experience when I go to college, so if that doesn’t work out, I have something to fall back on that I like to do,” Turner said. Turner is doing his senior project on the history of masonry and how it betters the community,

On Aug. 10, Rhodes was arrested again and charged with first degree kidnapping and two counts of sexual battery for allegedly forcing a 23-year-old female into his vehicle and holding her against her will in a parking lot on N.C.

of North Carolina can educate people when they can’t work legally in the state after they’re educated,” Perdue said to the Greensboro News and Record. Stam stated in a press release that he had called on the board to consider all costs prior to making this decision, but doesn’t believe that it has. “This decision to admit illegal aliens to our com-

munity colleges is an affront to the people of our state who value the rule of law,” he said. “The board has defied Governor Perdue and the majority of North Carolina citizens.” The policy now must go through an administrative rules process that usually takes 6 to 12 months. The current admissions standard of not admitting undocumented

immigrants, which went into effect May 2008, will remain in place until the new policy becomes law. “We don’t really know how we are going to implement this,” Thompson said. “We will look to the state board for guidelines, and we will follow it to the letter.”

Children’s Home. ACH is planning on building two new cottages on their Lexington campus and renovating existing cottages that house children who are victims of neglect, abuse or have been removed from unsafe conditions. Riders will leave out of Blowing Rock today and arrive in Surf City on Oct. 3. The trip will take overnight stops in Lenoir, Statesville, Thomasville, Sanford, Dunn and Kenansville. ACH president Russ Gobble will be part of a 10-person team from the children’s home and is excited about the challenge of cycling across the state. “We feel confident we can make this ride,” Gobble said. “It just seemed

like the perfect opportunity to do something beneficial for the kids. We got a little sponsor money and have been able to raise over $6,000 so far. If you can do something that is good for you and help others at the same time, it’s a win-win situation.” Scott also said that NASCAR star Bobby Labonte, an avid cyclist himself, will be joining riders on Tuesday when they make their stop. Labonte is going to ride from States-

ville to Thomasville and is planning on attending the downtown block party Tuesday evening. Riders will start arriving in town between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. Cyclists from 38 states and two different countries will be participating in the 11th installment of the event that is hosted by North Carolina Amateur Sports.

RELIGION CHURCH NOTES

Changing our thinking VIEWPOINT

DOUG CREAMER Guest Columnist

I like to spend time with people. I find it interesting to learn about someone’s background and generally what makes them tick. I am concerned when people are going through difficult times and I often wonder what can be done to make things better. I guess I am the type of person who listens well, but I am afraid I am not the best person at making a difference in those situations. Most of the time my problem is not knowing exactly what I should do in a particular situation. Sometimes I am afraid to risk stepping out. A few weeks ago I was talking with someone who told me they were in pain. We talked about it but

I never took the initiative to ask this person if I could pray for him. I thought about it when I got to my car, but knew it would be awkward to go back and ask if I could pray with him. This week I was talking with an individual who was fighting the cruds. I think the sinus and stomach bugs have started to make the rounds a little early this year. Anyway, we were in a situation that would have been easy to stop and pray. This time it occurred to me while we were still talking that maybe I should pray with him. It’s such a simple, yet difficult thing to ask if you can pray for someone. Sadly, I missed another opportunity to possibly see God do something wonderful. I met with another person last week who told me about something very personal they were dealing with at the moment. The longer we talked the more I realized that I could do something to change the situation they were facing. The only problem is that I needed their permission to intervene. When I asked, the individual naturally declined, but

when I asked why they wouldn’t let me help, they couldn’t answer. So in that case I was lucky and was able to make the connections that helped to make a little difference in that situation. I am a very lucky person because I am often able to help my students find jobs. Over the years I have connected many students and employers who were perfect for each other. Nothing can compare to the feeling of making that kind of connection. It’s all about helping people and making a positive difference in my little corner of the world. Sometimes I step out and God does something great. Other times I shrink back and God isn’t given the opportunity to do anything to change the circumstances. What has to happen? I have to change my thinking in every situation. Every time I meet with someone, I have to stop and think that this might be an encounter where God wants to do something if I will open that door for Him. I believe more and more that God wants to reveal Himself to us and to the world which so

desperately needs Him. The beauty of creation cries out that there is a God in heaven, but so many miss it. God wants a relationship with every person and I believe that He is willing to reveal Himself through His power. God can instantly break addictions, He can deliver people from horrific circumstances, and He can heal mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and physically. Why doesn’t God do these things? First, I think we don’t ask Him to do it. Second, many people believe that stuff only occurred in the Bible, not today. Third, I believe that some people don’t want their circumstances to change. They are comfortable living with their addiction or problems and they know if God really intervened then they would be responsible to change their way of life. Sadly, people resist God because following Him and allowing Him to work in their lives means that things will change. I want to encourage you to change your way of thinking. Consider

BY ELIOT DUKE Staff Writer ASHEBORO — Thomasville’s winds of change blew across Lee J. Stone Stadium Friday night versus the Asheboro Blue Comets. Led by a bonecrushing ground assault and a stalwart effort from the defense, the Bulldogs earned a much-needed 21-0 victory over the Asheboro Blue Comets, ending THS’ fourgame losing steak. With a bye week on the way and conference play on the horizon, Friday’s win couldn’t have come at a better time. “We’ve been in the desert,” Bulldogs coach Allen Brown said as mist peppered the night air. “To get a little water is good because we’ve been dry. It was a good win, we needed one desperately.” Clinging to a touchdown lead, the offense took the second half kickoff and pounded the ball right at the Asheboro defense. Junior Kesean Green carried the ball on all but three of the 11 rushing plays the Bull-

dogs ran en route to a 80-yard scoring drive. Green finished it off with a 37-yard burst behind right tackle into open field and six points. Lawson Hodges’ PAT put the visitors up 14-0 with 6:14 left in the third quarter. “Our offensive line did some good blocking in there,” said Brown. “That was the best drive of the year for us.” Even when the offense stumbled the defense was there to back them up. After Lawrence Thomas fumbled near midfield in the opening minute of the fourth quarter, Robert Davis jumped on a loose ball Dimitri Flaglier coughed up on a Tywon Little tackle and raced 70 yards the other way for a touchdown. AHS coach Dee Bulla contended the call, claiming his back was down and even drew an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty arguing with officials. The referees thought otherwise, giving THS a commanding 21-0 advantage with 10:36 remaining in

CATHY ELLIOTT NASCAR Columnist

Is Montoya naughty or nice in Chase At the start of the 2009 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season, Juan Pablo Montoya and his No. 42 Target Dodge team got together and made a plan. They decided what they wanted to do and how they were going to do it. Then, lo and behold, they went out and actually did it. Since the day Santa Claus first set a daunting goal for himself — to deliver toys to all the good children on earth in a single night — people have been making lists. And checking them twice. Or, in the case of Montoya, checking them 26 times. To accomplish a seemingly impossible task takes an awful lot of preparation. It also requires a keen eye. One must be able to have a clear view not only of the forest, which is the big picture, but also of the individual trees that must be gotten around, climbed, or if necessary, simply chopped down to make one’s way through. One of my favorite quotes comes courtesy of Albert Einstein, who said you have to learn the rules of the game, and then you have to play it better than everyone else. To do this requires determination, talent, some amount of luck, and a hefty dose of good old-fashioned hard work. Those are all positive things, right? Of course they are. So one has to wonder why the hammer is coming down so hard on Montoya all of a sudden. Here’s the deal, in case you missed it. Since the race at Richmond on September when the 12-driver field for the

quarter. The Panthers used the East turnovers to their advantage all night long, as they put another tally on the board before the end of the first quarter. East fullback Malcolm Wimmer had a first down and a 13 yard gain, but in an effort to pick up extra yardage, had the ball stripped away. Chris Ross recovered in a scrum on the sideline at the 47 of Ledford.

Lessons learned in the real world of the outdoors I suppose outdoor writers have always been guilty of writing stories that make certain pursuits look easy. I read stories in the regional magazines, (and I suppose Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m occasionally guilty of writing one) that promise instant results provided you just do whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recommended in the story. Occasionally, an outdoor story does tell about a skunked fishing trip or an unsuccessful hunt, but most end with success. A few years ago, I was given an assignment to write a striper surf fishing story in a major North Carolina outdoor magazine. The editor told me, â&#x20AC;&#x153;You need to include maps so readers can find the fish.â&#x20AC;? Over the phone, I patiently explained to him that the fish move and you find them by reading the water and watching for birds and how the story would include tips on how to do just that. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need maps because the people who read the magazine want to be able to just go to a spot and catch fish. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of the new look of the magazine. We want to put more graphics in to catch the eye of younger readers.â&#x20AC;? I sighed and produced a map of the entire Hatteras Island with highlights in every location where the water was deep enough that the fisherman couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see the swivel at the top of his rig. He was happy. Several years ago, I became aware of the practice of awarding trophies to all the kids in sports events to keep their self esteem from being damaged by the trauma of witnessing the winnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taking the only trophies.

Having the wheel run off the trailer on the way to a deer hunt in Idaho is no fun. Spending the day with a wet foot in an icy duck blind because of a hole in your waders isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a pleasant experience. Driving to the town of Davis, taking a ferry over to an island without electricity, and spending four days sleeping in the truck because the 30 knot winds will blow the tent you brought into the next county is rarely desirable. But all of those experiences will build character and give you a great story to tell. One of the things I love about the outdoors is being constantly reminded of the perfection of Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s creation. As I grow older, I realize that God designed our world to develop our character by not instantly rewarding us with the limit of ducks or the cooler full of fish. Our world was perfectly designed to give us a balance of success and failure that makes us become better people. Dick Jones is a freelance writer living in High Point.

LAYING IT DOWN Jimmie Johnson claimed the pole position on Friday for the AAA 400 that will be ran on Sunday at Dover International Speedway.

CHASE From page B1 Chase for the Sprint Cup was set, Montoya has openly admitted that his strategy since the onset of the season has been to race for points and to accumulate enough of them to make the Chase. Stop the presses. Call the law. Alert the NASCAR authorities immediately. This cannot be happening. Montoya has publicly stated to the world that he actually schemed, planned and plotted to make the Chase. Can things like this happen in America? They can, and they did. Heading into the race at Dover, Montoya sits fourth — fourth! — in the driver standings, ahead of guys AKA former champions like Tony Stewart, Kurt Busch and Jeff Gordon. He gained seven — seven! — spots in the first Chase event at New Hampshire International Speedway. He sat on the pole for that race and was a strong contender for the win all day. When the going gets tough, the tough get on the gas. If you listen to sports talk radio, frequent NASCAR-friendly Web sites or watch a lot of racing on television, you are already aware of the hue and cry surrounding this issue. How dare Montoya deliberately race for points? How can NASCAR tolerate someone so calculating that he actually made an effort to figure out what he needed to do in order to contend for a championship? What nerve, to “work the system” like that. What a sandbagger. I have to say this is one of the silliest things I have seen or heard in a very long time, and that’s saying something. What we’re lacking here is that elusive thing called perspective. Regardless of each individual’s opinion on the subject, the Chase has changed the way everyone — drivers, teams, sponsors and yes, fans — looks at NASCAR. Psychologically speaking, we now have a segmented season. Back

in the day, the stretch of time between the seasonopening Daytona 500 and the final race of the year loomed large and long. But nowadays, we have the equivalent of that lovely musical term called an interlude. At race 26, we get a rest stop on the road. We reset our odometers and get ready for the home stretch. It’s the same basic format followed by every professional sport; only the elite can earn the ultimate prize. The cool thing about NASCAR is that everyone gets to go all the way, but only 12 of them are eligible to get there first. A good plan is like a road map, or for our purposes, a track map. It shows the final destination and the best way to get there. For example, consider the guy who works his way through a series of complicated numbers and formulas, putting in whatever amount of time is needed to figure out all the different, confusing systems he needs to understand in order to be the best. He takes things apart and puts them back together again in the proper order so many times that he might actually be able to do it in his sleep. If something just doesn’t sound or look right, he has an excellent idea of what it is and how to fix it. The end result is that we applaud him, trust him and richly reward him for his efforts. Do we call this guy a sandbagger? Nope. We don’t even call him Chad Knaus. We call him a doctor. Instead of criticizing what may seem to us a strategy lacking in passion, perhaps instead we should acknowledge Montoya’s effort. We need to realize that success in NASCAR means so much to him that he has basically set aside his ego — the chance to knock some other guy out of the way for a single victory here or there — in order to place himself in a position to wrap his hands around the brass ring every driver reaches for. Winning the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship isn’t quite as difficult as dropping

Guitar Hero down the chimneys of every kid on the planet overnight, but it comes close. Montoya’s wish list, although short, is a focused and comprehensive one. Every accomplishment begins with a simple decision to try. And Santa always knows. So come Christmas morning, don’t be too terribly surprised if Juan Pablo Montoya finds just what he asked for sparkling underneath his tree. Contact Elliott at cathyelliott@hotmail.com.

Tech triple-option a challenge for Heels BY BRIANA GORMAN Durham Herald Sun CHAPEL HILL â&#x20AC;&#x201D; When No. 22 North Carolina visits Georgia Tech today, it will be facing the Yellow Jacketsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; unique triple-option offense. And if the Tar Heels hope to win their first ACC opener in eight years, they will have to find a way to slow down the main piece of that offense, 2008 ACC player of the year Jonathan Dwyer. The junior leads an offense that is ranked first in the ACC with 243.7 rushing yards per game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At any moment, he can just break away for a 70-, 80-yard run, so heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the key to their offense,â&#x20AC;? UNC defensive end Robert Quinn said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If he gets going, then itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be a long day for us.â&#x20AC;?

The Yellow Jackets (2-1, 1-1) are coming off a 33-17 loss to Miami on Sept. 17 in which its offense was held to 95 rushing yards. Dwyer was slowed by a shoulder injury in that game, finishing with 7 rushing yards on five carries, but he is expected to return to return to the field today. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Like all good running backs, he has great explosion and speed,â&#x20AC;? UNC coach Butch Davis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play the position heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s playing, particularly, without being tough. He has proven that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very physical kid because heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the few running backs in college football that gets hit every single play, whether he has the ball or doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the ball.â&#x20AC;? UNC beat Georgia Tech 28-7 a year ago in Chapel

Hill, but Dwyer finished the game with 157 rushing yards. Most of that yardage came from an 85yard touchdown run in the final six minutes of the game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got good vision,â&#x20AC;? Davis said â&#x20AC;&#x153;We learned that the hard way when he hit that big home run play last year, when he saw the cut back and he immediately cut behind the tackles and cut behind the middle linebacker and took it to the house.â&#x20AC;? And while Georgia Tech boasts the top running attack in the conference, UNC (3-0) counters with the ACCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top running defense. The Tar Heels are giving up just 52.3 yards per game on the ground and are ranked third in scoring defense (11 points per game) and

total defense (198.7 yards average). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Defensively, North Carolina has eye-popping numbers,â&#x20AC;? Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson said earlier this week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anytime you give up less than 200 yards a game, I do not care who you are playing, that is pretty good.â&#x20AC;? Davis said the Tar Heelsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; defense will have to be disciplined against the dangerous triple option, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s glad this isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the first season UNC will be playing against the scheme. The Yellow Jackets put up 423 yards of offense a year ago, but the Tar Heels pulled out the victory. Davis said the Yellow Jackets have added more wrinkles to the triple option this season, and Dwyer isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only threat. Junior Josh Nesbitt is

From page B2

a mobile quarterback who is ranked fourth in the ACC with 71 rushing yards per game. And while the Yellow Jackets have attempted just 42 passes in three games, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re averaging 24.2 yards per completion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of moving parts to this offense, and you have to show respect to all of them,â&#x20AC;? Davis said. Notes: Wide receiver Josh Adams (shoulder) and offensive lineman Jonathan Cooper (ankle) are questionable for todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game. â&#x20AC;Ś Linebacker Linwan Euwall (ankle) and cornerback LeCount Fantroy (thigh) are doubtful. â&#x20AC;Ś Tight endâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ryan Taylor (knee) and Zack Pianalto and center Lowell Dyer (shoulder) are out of the game.

greatness, but Rison said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to see more against the Blue Devils. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have to play much better than we did last week,â&#x20AC;? Rison said of his teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 13-10 overtime loss to Morehead State. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to make sure we make it happen on offense. Our defense is playing well.â&#x20AC;? NCCU (0-3) has had opportunities to win each of its first three games but has let each slip away. Rison said his defense is ahead of the offense when it comes to con-

sistency. In the first two games, the Eagles scored first but then were unable to hang on in crunch time. Against Morehead State, it appeared the Eagles were going to pull the same trick as speedy wide receiver Will Scott got behind the Morehead State secondary on the first play of the game. Michael Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pass was just off his fingertips, and the Eaglesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; offense seemed to sputter until midway through the second half.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had many off days in the passing game since Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been here,â&#x20AC;? Rison said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For some reason, we just could not connect. It was an off day. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know when to expect them, but youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have them.â&#x20AC;? Johnson said he felt like the offense let the defense down in that game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I missed routes I normally hit,â&#x20AC;? Johnson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have room for any of those struggles in this game against Duke. We have to do a good job

staying disciplined and not make any stupid mistakes.â&#x20AC;? Duke coach David Cutcliffe also has been frustrated by his teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lack of consistency during its 1-2 start. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m surprised that we havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t played better than we have. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m irritated,â&#x20AC;? Cutcliffe said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen flashes, but nothing consistent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There will be a lot of good athletes on the field, and we better play good. I

Bouncing outside and bursting through a hole over the right side, he sprinted down to the two where he was knocked out of bounds. Jonathan Reid picked up the remaining two yards to send the Panthers ahead 14-0. “They lined up and pounded us, but we were able to take advantage of some turnovers in the first half,” said LHS head coach Chuck Henderson. East controlled the clock taking large chunks of time off, but had very little points to show for when in the red zone. Dylan Gallimore was a workhorse running the ball, carrying it 38 times for 178 yards. He carried it down to the seven of Ledford early in the second quarter, only to have

Duke, however, will be the biggest challenge yet for his defense. The Blue Devils are supposed to be the deeper and more talented team because of the greater number of scholarship players.

Following the punt, East methodically moved the ball from its own 26 to the Panther 25 in nine plays, as Gallimore carried the ball seven times for 33 yards. Facing a fourth and 10 from the LHS 24, Warren attempted to hit Duncan Bean, but the pass fell incomplete, spoiling another fine drive by East that produced no points. Ledford took over with 2:54 left needing to travel 75 yards for the score. They were moving the ball with ease getting down to the 20 of East. Fuquay made a rare mistake, throwing an interception into the hands of Justin Weavil near the two. In a bizarre sequence of calls, somehow the Panthers were awarded the ball at the three.

what I wanted to do to help the team win. This win is a motivation boost. We’re ready to get to conference and put those losses behind us.” For the remainder of the half, however, THS amassed a total of 42 yards on three drives, leaving it to the defense

to keep the Blue Comets down. With the speedster Faglier in their sights, the Bulldog defense, while allowing a few big runs to the senior, never let AHS smell the end zone as Thomasville led 7-0 at halftime. Sam Nelson attempted just three passes the entire game.

James Reese said he isn’t too worried about that disparity because the game will be played on the field and not in a notebook. “I’m ready to play just like my teammates,” Reese said. “There’s been a lot of hype for this game, and we’re excited about it.” Notes: While the Eagles will be playing as if they have nothing to lose, the Blue Devils will be motivated by all they could lose. “We definitely have to win this game,” Duke safety Matt Daniels said. “If we lose to Central, about five minutes away from us, you’d have to deal with that from the fans and the coaches and the Duke community. It would probably stick on us the rest of the year.

Our kids are frustrated because they felt like they pushed them around pretty good and then came around with nothing, so we have to recover from that.” East did make a game of it with 7:16 to play traveling 76 yards, capped by a Gallimore run up the gut from nine yards out, trimming the deficit to 11 at 21-10. An onside-kick recovery wound up going for naught, and one final push in the closing minutes ended up a yard short of the goal line. “They kept the ball and kept chewing up time, but we held them when we needed to,” said Henderson. “You know, bend but don’t break.” East rolled up 327 yards compared to Ledford’s 231. East falls to 3-3 with Ledford improving to 2-3.

BUSINESS

Offer customer service with a smile ASK THE COCH

TAMMY HOLYFIELD Business Columnist Dear Coach, I’m a leader who understands excellent customer service is fundamental to success. Keeping customers consistently coming back and happy is critical. There are gaps between what I believe to be good customer service and what my direct reports believe. What can I do to better equip my staff ? – People person Dear People person, How may I help you? Oh, the question that puts a smile on your face. As leaders and business owners, our livelihood depends on how well we answer that question. The Stanford Research Institute found, “The money you make in any endeavor is determined by only 12.5% knowledge and 87.5% by your ability to deal with people. In today’s market, with so many choices, it is not enough just to give the customer what they want. We must also anticipate what they don’t know they want and provide service that WOWS. So, why do customers leave? Research reveals 1% Die, 3% Move away, 5% Other friendships, 9% Competitive reasons, 14% Product dissatisfaction, and 68% leave because of an attitude of indifference toward them by an employee. There

seems to be a gap in service mentality nowadays. Some employees seem to be disengaged, viewing their work performance separate from the organizations overall success, when in fact it is directly connected. Serving customers should be seen as an opportunity, rather than an obligation. Here are a few suggestions for taking customer service to the new levels. 1. Ask the Customer Knowledge is a powerful tool that propels business success. Having knowledge about how customers see our business allows us to make positive changes. When we know the truth it also helps to increase the speed of that change. Ask customers for honest feedback and embrace the truth. It may not always be what you expected. Here are a few great questions to ask: Why did your customers originally choose to do business with you? Why do existing clients continue to do business with you? How would your customers rate their overall level of satisfaction with your business? According to your clients, what do you do well? According to your clients how could you improve? Do your current clients know what other products and services you offer? What could you do to get more business

earned highest honors in customer satisfaction from J.D. Power and Associates for eight of the past nine years. 2. Define Superior Customer Service During our customer service workshops one of the first things we do is define superior customer service. What exactly does that mean to you? Most people have never thought that our customers are just like us. When we think of service we tend to think of how we have been served and not how we serve. We view customer service from our own perspective. As an organization it is critical to expand those personal experiences by communicating, not only verbally but in visual and kinesthetic ways, specifically what we expect our employees to deliver. I have heard

it said, “When you hear something, you will forget it. When you see something, you will remember it. But not until you do something, will you understand it.” We should treat our customers as we want to be treated but until we experience superior customer service for ourselves, we may not understand what it takes to provide that level of service. 3. People Development: Character and Skill Superior customer service requires character and skill. It can be defined by delivering the unexpected. We expect people to be friendly. We expect at best an average level of service. The average work environment isn’t terrible; it’s average. And consequently, good is the enemy of great. To get people to deliver superior customer service, we need to look at two areas, the

development of character and the training of skills. People who demonstrate superior customer service have a genuine passion for serving people. They remember the customers’ preferences, pay attention to the details, know their products and services and exceed expectations.

SECU expands ‘green’ initiatives

from your existing customer base? What additional products or services would your clients like for you to offer? Would your current clients be confident in referring business to you? Answering these questions can also help to establish a benchmark for training staff. It will provide information and clearly identify performance gaps. At the same time, you may find new business strategies to generate growth and increase. Knowing your customers is essential to long term growth. Today’s customers can be impatient and demanding. They have high expectations and very little time. Top performing companies are always looking for ways to speed up and improve service. To get feedback about customers needs, Lexus started an Owner’s Advisory Forum in 1998. For Lexus, communication can be especially challenging considering manufacturers are in Japan and the majority of customers are in the United States. Each year Lexus brings about 20 engineers who are responsible for design and production, and they meet with 15 to 20 loyal Lexus owners. Together they talk about the details of the car, what they like and what they dislike. As a result Lexus customers have grown from 500,000 in 1996 to over one million. Lexus dealers have also

N.C. Zoo recognized for exhibit design TIMES STAFF REPORT

The Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) today announced that the North Carolina Zoo has received its 2009 Significant Achievement Award for Exhibit Design for its Watani Grasslands Reserve project. “The North Carolina Zoo a leader in innovative exhibits that provide great habitats for the animals and meaningful educational opportunities for its visitors,” said AZA President and CEO Jim Maddy. “The AZA Significant Achievement Award provides well-deserved national recognition for this important endeavor.” With its annual Exhibit Award, the Association of Zoos and Aquariums recognizes excellence in the area of live animal display and exhibit design by an AZA-accredited Institution (US or International) or Related Facility member. Watani Grasslands Reserve is an $8.5 million expansion and renovation of the North Carolina Zoo’s African Elephant and Southern White Rhinoceros habitats and holding facilities. The project enhances the viewing experience for visitors and will allow the Zoo to increase the breeding potential for these two highly threatened species. “The completion of the Watani Grasslands Reserve has given us a great opportunity to combine the philosophies of what we stand for into a single complex,” said North Carolina Zoo Director Dr. David Jones. “It is a stateof-the-art facility in terms of elephant and rhinoceros husbandry while providing a visual context in which visitors can picture a highly wooded African savannah. The exhibit also incorporates a wide variety of interpretive components and techniques which invite onlookers to consider the unique natural history of these species and how we are helping to ensure their survival.”

BUSINESS GREEN From page B6 deavors and we are very happy to have a Green Second Mortgage available specifically for such improvements. There are also some Federal and State tax credits and utility company rebates to assist homeowners who make energy efficient home improvements and we recommend that our members take advantage of those as well.” The Green Second Mortgage complements SECU’s other green loan products, which include a Green First Mortgage and Green Vehicle loan. The Credit Union also promotes a variety of environmentally friendly

services such online Estatements and BillPay, Direct Deposit and Mobile Access for those with a web-enabled mobile device. In addition to services, members of State Employees’ Credit Union support a variety of green initiatives through their partnership with NC GreenPower, a Raleigh-based non-profit that works with participants of electric utilities across the state to encourage the development of renewable energy through voluntary tax-deductible contributions. In 2007, SECU members via the SECU Foundation began a fouryear commitment to support cleaner, renewable energy alternatives for North Carolina through the funding of one kilo-

watt hour of renewable energy production in the State for each member --- a commitment to renewable energy in North Carolina of over 5.2 million kilowatt hours! NC GreenPower Board member and SECU Senior Executive Vice President Bobby Hall states, “NC GreenPower is very

appreciative to SECU and its membership for their dedication to cleaner energy options for the citizens of North Carolina. The Credit Union’s initiatives to provide members with green loan products and services further emphasize SECU’s commitment to promote energy efficiency.”
