DCS changes senior exam requirements BY KARISSA MINN Staff Writer
LEXINGTON – High school seniors in Davidson County Schools will now be eligible to be exempt from all course exams not required by the state, as long as they meet final grade average and attendance requirements. The Davidson County Schools Board of Education voted Monday to change its exemption
policy, which previously allowed only one course exemption per student each semester. That rule still will apply for students in 9th, 10th and 11th grades, but those in 12th grade could potentially be exempt from all of their exams. Dr. Sandi Lee, DCS assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction, said that the policy came up during the last high school principals’ meeting. The prin-
be unprepared for similar tests in college. “We believe that by taking exams as freshmen, sophomores and juniors, they certainly practice for exams a great deal,” she said. “We would like for this to be an incentive for seniors, almost like a senior privilege.” Eligibility requirements will remain the same – in each course, students must maintain a final average of A with no more than four absences,
‘We would for like this to be an incentive for seniors, almost like a senior privilege.’ — Dr. Sandi Lee DCS assistant superintendent for curriculum cipals said that the revision is likely to increase student performance, decrease absenteeism and discourage a “senior skip day.” Lee also said that school
officials felt strongly about not having an unlimited exemption policy, because it would mean that the best students at DCS would take very few exams in high school and

Coble looks to bolster home sales BY KEVIN REID Times Correspondent
GREENSBORO - The First-Time Homebuyers Federal Tax Credit is due to expire at the end of next month. In anticipation of this — and to further bolster home sales — Rep. Howard Coble has introduced legislation to not only extend it through all of 2010, but to also make the $8,000 incometax credit available to all home buyers. Coble has not been alone in in-
troducing such bills. Other representatives and senators have introduced bills with various forms of extending this tax credit. “I think there are maybe a total of four or five floating around up there,” Coble said of proposals to extend this home-buyers tax credit. “One or two are identical to my bill.” Coble, North Carolina’s Sixth District representative in Congress, feels that the tax-credit extension is needed to bolster the
economy. “The home-building industry is like the automobile industry and others; they’re all on the rocks and shoals of the water,” he said. “I feel like this will be a good chance to stimulate home construction.” When asked if he thought the homebuyers tax credit would be extended — either through his bill or that of another member of Congress — Coble replied, “I

Ribbon cutting planned for TelWorx expansion TIMES STAFF REPORT
WELCOME — TelWorx Communications, LLC, will officially introduce its new, state-of-the-art headquarters and warehouse to the Triad community at a ribbon cutting ceremony on Wednesday, Oct. 7. Beginning at 10:30 a.m. The ceremony will take place at the entrance of the building, which is located at 239 Welcome Center Boulevard in Welcome, N.C. TelWorx moved to its new location from a business park in Linwood, also in Davidson County. “Our business continues to grow, and we needed bigger facilities to enable that future growth,” saids Tim Scronce, president and CEO of TelWorx. “Because there are many advantages to doing business in Davidson County — excellent access to major roadways, railways and air travel; a skilled workforce that serves as a pool of potential employees; and a businessfriendly environment —TelWorx will continue to grow and expand our employee base here.” The new 40,000 square foot headquarters and
warehouse space was built by I.L. Long Construction Company and includes many environmentally friendly features. The spacious, open floor plan incorporates an exposed ceiling (which reduces building material waste) and soothing natural colors such as tans and greens with large windows allowing natural lighting as a key element. Occupancy sensors turn off the energy efficient light fixtures when no motion is detected, and reduced-flow water appliances and tankless water heaters conserve water and reduce energy consumption. The TelWorx move and expansion of operations is a great event for Davidson County, says Steve Googe, executive director of the Davidson County Economic Development Commission. “In these economic conditions, the TelWorx expansion is a welcome addition to Davidson County,” he said. “The company creates highly paid professional jobs with average salaries in excess of $60,000, which are more than double our current
county average wage. Growing companies like TelWorx fit perfectly with our mission of seeing the per capita income and quality of life increase for the residents of Davidson County.” TelWorx is a leading provider of products, solutions and technical services to the wireless, wireline, data center and government sectors. In addition, TelWorx provides “back office” business processes for its fastgrowing sister company, TowerWorx, a manufacturer of mobile tower solutions based in Pryor, Oklahoma. Refreshments will be served at the ribbon cutting ceremony, and members of the community may tour the TelWorx headquarters.
City reports wastewater spill TIMES STAFF REPORT An estimated 1,000 gallons of untreated wastewater spilled in Thomasville on Wednesday.

Knowledge is vaccine for Swine Flu paranoia LIFELONG HEALTH
DR. DAVID LIPSCHITZ Syndicated Columnist
Swine flu, or H1N1, is spreading across the country, primarily affecting children and young adults who cluster together in schools and colleges. This is leading to a heightened fear and paranoia about the virus, fears that may only get worse as the vaccine becomes available and doctors must ration who receives it. Remember, all the evidence suggests that swine flu is no more aggressive than any other seasonal influenza virus. Without doubt, the swine flu is a pandemic that public health officials are taking very seriously. The H1N1 virus is a new strain of influenza, and no one has the kind of immunity they may have against the seasonal flu. Although the risk of death is very small, ranging from 0.3 to 0.5 percent, the number of fatalities can become overwhelming if millions of Americans are affected. It’s hoped that the H1N1 vaccine, which is due to be released in early October, will prevent the further spread of this challenging illness. Here are the facts about swine flu: Vulnerable individuals are much more likely to develop a serious illness with often fatal complications. These include young children, pregnant women and adults over the age of 80. In addition, anyone with a serious illness
that reduces the body’s defense mechanisms will be more vulnerable to the illness, such as patients with rheumatoid arthritis, cancer, and lung problems such as asthma, emphysema or chronic bronchitis. In these individuals, the virus itself does not lead to serious disease. Rather, the illness is complicated by a severe bacterial illness, most commonly pneumonia, which can lead to hospital admission and even death. Sadly for no known reason, in a very small fraction of healthy people, the virus can spread rapidly throughout the body, causing inflammation of the brain, heart and muscles, and often leads to death. This was likely the case for the 20-year-old Cornell University student who succumbed to the virus earlier this month. Swine flu will usually cause a high fever (greater than 101 degrees), headache, sore throat and perhaps gastrointestinal upset. However, several studies suggest that initial symptoms can be much milder. As a result, parents, teachers and caregivers throughout the country are having panic attacks over every cough, sniffle and fever. If you develop the symptoms of a minor respiratory infection, please do not panic. If the symptoms are significant or get worse, it is time to see your doctor. While there is a screening test for swine flu, it is only moderately effective. If there is any doubt about the severity of the diagnosis, your doctor may prescribe an antiviral medication (Tamiflu or Relenza). However, when symptoms are mild, observation may be adequate because the amount of antiviral available is limited. We also must do everything we can to help avoid the spread of the virus. Most impor-
tantly, if you feel ill for any reason, stay home. If you must go out, wear a mask and avoid touching others. Do not send sick children to school or day care. The virus is spread rapidly by contact, so the more you wash your hands the better. It is also a good idea to keep a small bottle of an antiseptic solution nearby and wash your hands before or after coming into contact with others. When the vaccine becomes available, stay calm, follow directions and allow the most vulnerable in the population to be treated first. Recently published in the New England Journal of Medicine, a study indicates that it will take only one injection rather than two injections to protect against the swine flu. Therefore, the total amount of vaccine available will be greater than expected. Every community needs a well-orchestrated game plan to assure that citizens receive the vaccination quickly and in an orderly fashion. Sadly, it is impossible to predict which healthy individual will develop a life-threatening illness. While we would all rather be safe than sorry, it is also important to understand that a very small percentage of people infected with this illness will develop life-threatening complications. Remember, we can all take a few simple steps to protect against the swine flu.

Medical illness increases risk of depression TIMES STAFF REPORT Those with medical illnesses face higher risks for depression than other individuals according to Thomasville Medical Center. The losses, stress, and uncertainty associated with medical illness may make people more vulnerable to depression. Depending on the illness, the risk for depression may be twice that of the general population. Depression affects • About 25 percent of people with cancer • Up to 27 percent of people who have had a stroke • About 33 percent of those with HIV • Up to 65 percent of those who have had heart attacks When a person with cancer, diabetes, or heart disease develops depression it can be harder to recognize. “Depression is often overlooked when
it coexists with a medical illness,” said Robin Rosenbalm, Community Education Manager at TMC. “Patients and family members may dismiss sadness as a normal reaction to being seriously ill and mistake changes in eating and sleeping as side effects to medication.” There is nothing normal, however, about experiencing symptoms of depression for weeks on end. Individuals and family members should be concerned when they observe any of the following symptoms of depression persisting for weeks at a time: • Feelings of sadness, helplessness, and hopelessness • Worried, restless, or anxious mood • Lack of energy, feeling tired or slowed down • Difficulty concentrating, remembering, and making decisions
• Sleeping too little or too much • Loss of interest in hobbies or activities that were once enjoyed • Thoughts of death or suicide Depression can be effectively treated with medication and counseling. Within a matter of weeks, most people experience relief from depressive symptoms. “Treating a person with cancer for depression is a little more complicated,” says Rosenbalm. “Extra caution is important when a person is taking other medications or treatments.” This is because some heart medications or pain relievers interact with antidepressant medications. As a result, doctors carefully select safe, suitable, easily tolerated medications. Recovering from depression helps people to

A N.C. hero in a new best-seller VIEWPOINT
D.G. MARTIN N.C. Columnist How did a North Carolinian come to be a hero in a new best-selling book about a Tutsi refugee from the ethnic civil wars in Burundi and Rwanda? The new book is “Strength in What Remains: A Journey of Remembrance and Forgiveness” by Pulitzer Prize winning author Tracy Kidder. Kidder’s earlier book, “Mountains Beyond Mountains: The Quest of Dr. Paul Farmer, a Man Would Cure the World,” is already a modern classic. The new book tells the story of Deogratias Niyizonkiza (“Deo”), who barely escaped the ethnic massacres that erupted around the hospital in Burundi where he worked as part of his medical training. In 1994, after months of fleeing and hiding, he made his way to New York City. Deo spoke no English and had no background to prepare him for the city. He slept in abandoned tenements or in Central Park He got a grocery delivery job that paid a few dollars a day. Malnourishment, illness, and the mental anguish from the horrors of his country’s ethnic civil war almost brought Deo down. But, miraculously, within a few years he had graduated from Columbia University, enrolled in medical school, and earned U.S. Citizenship. Then, he returned to Burundi where he led the construction and opening of a new medical clinic to treat illness and to help heal the lingering spiritual wounds of the ethnic turmoil. Although author Tracy Kidder writes with restraint and dignity, he tells Deo’s poignant story so compellingly that most readers, once they get started, will want to finish the book without any interruption. What then is the North Carolina connection and why is a North Carolinian such a hero? That connection helps explain the miracle of Deo’s transformation from “street person” to university graduate. It happened like this:
One day Deo delivered groceries to a former Catholic nun. She spoke some French with him and gave him a generous tip. Deo followed up by requesting her help. She responded with a saintly commitment to his cause. She persuaded Charlie and Nancy Wolf to give Deo a room in their apartment in the SoHo section of Manhattan. Nancy is a prominent artist, and Charlie is a former university sociology professor with an international reputation as an expert on the impact of changing technology on the lives of individuals. Charlie grew up in Chapel Hill where his father was a prominent economics professor and labor arbitrator. Charlie graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill and taught there before moving North to teach at Ivy League schools. Charlie and Nancy not only gave Deo a safe, comfortable place to live. They arranged for an English as a second language course at Columbia University, which led to his enrollment as a regular student and finally his graduation. The Wolfs were always there to provide the connections and financial resources to make it all possible. I talked to Charlie Wolf the other day and asked how in the world they could give a place in their house and do so much for a homeless refugee in so much trouble. Charlie said simply, “Nancy and I got from Deo so much more than we gave.” North Carolinians can be proud of their example of the rewards of service to others. But there is a part of the story that should not make us so proud. Before enrolling at Columbia, Deo came to Chapel Hill to seek entrance to the university. But there was no place for him at the university — only a low-level job at a local nursing home. He did not find the help he needed here. He had to go back to New York and Charlie Wolf to get the kind of “North Carolina” help that turned his life around. D.G.

And you say conservatism is dying? VIEWPOINT
MONA CHAREN Syndicated Columnist Strangely, chatter about the “death of conservatism” is circulating this fall. I say “strangely” because we are in the midst of the greatest left/liberal moment in living memory. Liberal policies are careening out of Washington and mowing down innocent bystanders. This is the greatest opportunity since the Carter administration to illustrate to voters why conservatism is to be preferred. So it’s downright weird that at this moment, we are being asked to ponder how far we have fallen from the glory days of William F. Buckley and Milton Friedman. “How awful for you,” say those who never sympathized with conservatism, “that you have been reduced to Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity.” This is rubbish. Conservatives have always had populists as well as intellectuals. In the 1970s there was Buckley, yes, but also Howard Jarvis and Richard Viguerie. We had fewer radio voices because the Fairness Doctrine limited free speech. Now we have a chorus where once we had only a few soloists. Besides, why don’t those crying crocodile tears for conservatism’s supposed decline fret that liberalism is represented by the likes of Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow? I’ll see your Rush Limbaugh and raise you an Al Franken and a Michael Moore. Far from suffering a decline, conservatism is on the cusp of a major comeback, courtesy of Obama, Pelosi, and Reid. That revival will be fertilized by their failures. The crop is already
beginning to come in: Cash for Clunkers: The goal of the program was to reduce carbon emissions and boost the ailing auto industry. As even “Saturday Night Live” acknowledges, the program succeeded in stimulating the economy — of Japan. The Department of Transportation estimates that 59 percent of vehicles bought with clunker bonuses were foreign made. As for the American auto industry, as soon as the program ended, sales plummeted by 25 percent compared with last year, suggesting that consumers simply rushed to purchase cars in August that they were planning to purchase soon anyway. The environmental impact is speculative. Some estimate that the program will save 0.04 percent of CO2 -- or two days worth -- over the next decade. Or maybe not even that. Lee Schipper of Berkeley and several colleagues warned in the Washington Post that new cars are more fun to drive than old clunkers. It is therefore possible that the program will not yield even that de minimus environmental benefit. Moreover, the price for this fandango came to $2,000 per vehicle, or $1.4 billion to taxpayers. Minimum Wage Hike: On the campaign trail, candidate Obama proclaimed, “We shouldn’t raise the minimum wage every 10 years, we should raise it every year, to keep up with inflation. If you work in this country, you should not be poor.” Conservatives warned that increases in the minimum wage always result in fewer jobs for the young and unskilled. The Democrats passed it. It became law in July. What happened? Seasonally adjusted teen unemployment reached its highest level in 63 years -- 25.9 percent. In two months, 330,000 jobs for teenagers just vanished. As the Wall Street Journal noted, the situation is most dire for black male teenagers, whose unemployment rate jumped from an already grievous 39.2 percent in July to 50.4 percent in September. The anemic economy is obviously
one factor in the equation. But particularly in a time of recession, it violates common sense and 50 years of experience artificially to raise the price of labor. The Stimulus Bill: In order to prevent unemployment from reaching 8 percent and to boost consumption and economic activity, Congress passed a $787 billion stimulus behemoth. Six months on, the unemployment rate is brushing up against 10 percent. And, as economists John F. Cogan, John B. Taylor, and Volker Wieland argue, it seems that just as in the case of the $150 billion Bush stimulus plan in 2008, the temporary infusion of cash through refundable tax credits and one-time payments (about 20 percent of the stimulus) did not budge consumption at all. Thirty percent of the stimulus package is designated for unemployment benefits and health insurance subsidies, which may or may not be good public policy but which will not create a single new job. Another 20 percent will go to education. Only the most obtuse would argue that we weren’t already spending too much on education. Another 20 percent or so is designated for public works. But as a number of critics have pointed out, federal spending on roads and bridges has not necessarily been directed to the places with the highest levels of unemployment. Any stimulus package amounts to taking money from the pockets of some Americans and placing it in the pockets of others who have better political connections. (Tax cuts are fairer.) Most of the stimulus money has not yet been spent. And all of the spending will have to be paid for by tax hikes or inflation — or both. If this is the death of conservatism, I’m feeling like Lazarus.

Coble has let it be known that he is against health-care financial overhaul,â€œin its present form.â€? â€œI oppose it mainly because of the cost,â€? Coble said of health-care legislation, currently being banded about in Congress. â€œThe cost is just astronomical. Weâ€™re spending money that we donâ€™t have.â€?

EXAM From page 1 al Public School (NCVPS) and NovaNET programs. Since beginning its daytime virtual alternative high school program, the Extended Day School has faced some challenges, Johnson said. Both students and teachers have had to adjust to the new virtual format, as well as a larger student-to-teacher ratio and a large number of NCVPS teachers per course. As a result, the Ex-
forming illegal activity. â€œWe have voted to defund ACORN, but theyâ€™re still eligible to receive federal money through the stimulus bill,â€? Coble pointed out to Thomasville Times, six days before his House floor speech on the subject. â€œI think we have a bill in the hopper now to address that. This bill would make them ineligible to get any kind of [federal] money, because that program has been a rip-off since Day 1.â€? Coble used extreme caution to express optimism in the future of the economy. â€œIâ€™m reluctant to even say this because your readers may take this out of context,â€? he said to a Thomasville Times reporter. â€œI feel that economically, weâ€™re close to have bottomed out, and I think weâ€™ll see improvement. It wonâ€™t be tomorrow â€” and it may not even be this year â€” but I think it will start to turn up. Hopefully, that will improve the unemployment that plagues us.â€?

tended Day School is changing its schedule for the spring 2010 semester to decrease the number of students per teacher in lab settings. It also is registering all students into one section with one NCVPS teacher where possible. As of Sept. 28, there were 106 students enrolled in the Extended Day School, and the passing rate was 90 percent, compared to 70 percent last year. The school is currently No. 1 in the state for NCVPS enrollment, and Johnson said that other school systems
have contacted DCS about how to organize the program. The Extended Day School serves students who have difficulties in a regular school environment, who are considered at-risk and who have a high risk of dropping out. â€œI could talk to you all day about the real thing that we give to the students at Extended Day, and thatâ€™s hope,â€? Johnson said. â€œThey donâ€™t have a lot of hope sometimes, but we try to give them that hope in our program.â€?

CHAPEL HILL — As the clock wound down at the end of Virginia’s 16-3 over North Carolina on Saturday, the Kenan Stadium crowd let loose its feelings about the Tar Heels’ performance. And UNC quarterback
T.J. Yates had no argument with their assessment. “We deserve to get boos,” Yates said. For the second consecutive game, the junior said his team failed to execute offensively. A week after the Tar Heels put up 154 yards of offense in a loss to Geor-
gia Tech, they mustered just 174 yards against Virginia. It was the Cavaliers first win of the season and their fourth consecutive victory over UNC (3-2, 0-2). It was also the fewest points during the Butch Davis era and the first time one of his UNC teams hasn’t scored a
touchdown. “We’ve got to improve, and that’s my responsibility,” Davis said. “That’s our coaches’ responsibility, and that’s the approach we’re going to take as soon as we get back tomorrow.” Even though the of-

KANSAS CITY, KS. — Two-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Tony Stewart took two tires on his final pit stop and held off hardcharging Jeff Gordon, a four-time champion himself, at the finish to win the Price Chopper 400 at Kansas Speedway Sunday afternoon. Stewart, a first-year car owner/driver, raced hard all afternoon with the frontrunners and gambled with crew chief Darian Grubb on the two-tire strategy at the end. When asked if he saw Gordon in his rear view mirror, Stewart quipped, “He was getting bigger every lap.” Trailing Stewart and Gordon across the finish line were Greg Biffle, Juan Pablo Montoya, Denny Hamlin, Kasey Kahne, Mark Martin, David Reutimann, Jimmie Johnson and Carl Edwards. All of the top-10 drivers except Reutimann are battling in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup during the season’s final 10 races. Martin, the 50-year-old favorite of older fans, still leads the championship chase with three-time champion Johnson second in the standings. Montoya, with his third consecutive top-five finish in as

The race had 14 different leaders and 25 lead changes, both new track records. It also featured several wheel-to-wheel battles for the lead before a crowd of close to 100,000 at the scenic oneand-a-half mile tri-oval track.
Points leader Martin, in fact, passed several cars in the final laps to get his eighth-place finish. Dale Earnhardt, Jr., led briefly early in the race but a series of mishaps put him back in the pack and his engine finally quit about 30 laps from the finish.
Durham Herald Sun DURHAM — Many of the Virginia Tech fans who made themselves at home Saturday at Wallace Wade Stadium brought their seat cushions, but few if any of them felt a need to pack their pins and needles. Yet as the clock ticked toward the final four minutes, the Duke Blue Devils still were thinking about doing the unthinkable. Finally, when Virginia Tech quarterback Tyrod Taylor completed a 37yard pass on third and 11 — the last of many third-down daggers that Taylor delivered — the No. 6 Hokies felt as if they were sitting pretty on their way to a 34-26 victory. “It’s pretty amazing, for our guys to play as inspired as they did for 60 minutes and to be able to do that despite the opposing team in your home stadium having more fans than you’ve got,” Duke coach David Cutcliffe said. “That was two good football teams. One of them is 4-1 and one is 2-3, but it was two good football teams. “From the sidelines, it was one of the most intense games that I’ve seen. There’s no doubt they knew they were in a football game.” The Blue Devils led early, then trailed by a touchdown or less most of the day. Yet the hookup between Taylor and Danny Coale — on a day when Taylor threw for 327 yards on 17-of-22 passing — put Virginia Tech in position for running back Josh Oglesby to score his second touchdown of the fourth quarter for a 34-19 lead with 2:28 left. Taylor was expected to spend his day handing off to Ryan Williams, the ACC’s leading rusher, but early in the fourth quarter, Williams had mus-

Brunnhoelzl, who started the race second, took the lead from pole sitter Burt Myers on a Lap 26 restart. He held the lead until Myers was able to pass on a restart on lap 72 but he quickly resumed the top spot one lap later and clearly had the best car all night. “My crew gave me a really good car tonight,” Brunnhoelzl said in Victory Lane. “I was able to get a good run off of the turns and I think that is what made the difference for us tonight.”

fense struggled to move the ball, the Tar Heelsâ€™ defense kept the game within reach until the fourth quarter. Virginia (1-3, 10) led 9-3 when UNC got the ball back with 10:14 remaining in the game. But after a loss of yards and an incomplete pass, Yates was picked off on the third down. Yates was hit by Nate Collins, which caused the ball to go straight up in the air, and Chase Minnifield made the diving interception to give Virginia the ball on UNCâ€™s 42. Seven plays later, Mikell Simpson, who finished with 100 yards rushing on 20 carries, ran 8 yards into the end zone to give the Cavs a two-score advantage. â€œWeâ€™re very proud, very appreciative of the effort they put in to make this happen and very happy for them that they can enjoy a moment like this,â€? Virginia coach Al Groh said. â€œItâ€™s a playersâ€™ game, and they earned every part of it.â€? After Virginiaâ€™s touchdown, UNC got the ball back with 5:49 to play but went just 17 yards before turning the ball over on downs. The Tar Heels finished with nine first downs compared to Virginiaâ€™s 16, and Grant Schallock punted the ball eight times. â€œWe went from scoring seven to scoring three so it is kind of taking a step back,â€? Yates said. â€œWeâ€™ve just got to do better.â€? Virginia led 6-0 at the break thanks to 36- and 38-yard field goals by Robert Randolph. The Tar Heels had just 67 yards of offense in the first half but took their first possession of the second
half 58 yards down field for their first points. Kicker Casey Barth connected on a 39-yard field goal to cut Virginiaâ€™s lead to 6-3. But then Randolph hit a 43-yards field goal, his third of the day, for a 9-3 lead. â€œItâ€™s a disappointing loss,â€? Davis said. â€œItâ€™s a little bit of a carryover of the same thing from last week. The defense played well enough at times, certainly, to give us a chance to win the game. But itâ€™s a team game and we talk in the locker room all the time that you canâ€™t just win one phase of the game.â€? UNC again was hurt by its inability to establish a running game behind its young, injury-depleted offensive line. A week after gaining 17 rushing yards, the Tar Heels finished with 39 yards on the ground against the second-worst rushing defense in the ACC. â€œ[Weâ€™re] just not executing on the run game; the passing gameâ€™s not going well,â€? said Yates, who finished 20-of-36 for 135 yards. â€œTheyâ€™re not complementing each other because neither one of them is working. Weâ€™ve got to get the run game going to open up the pass game and the pass game to open up the run game.â€? But despite back-toback losses, Yates said the Tar Heelsâ€™ season isnâ€™t over. â€œWe started off strong and we hit a couple of road bumps and we canâ€™t give up on the season,â€? Yates said. â€œEverybody on this team had high expectations for us, and we definitely didnâ€™t see this in the schedule and so we canâ€™t give up. Weâ€™ve got to keep going back to work and go to the next game.â€?

In addition to the connection to Coale, Taylor set up a pair of field goals with a 20-yard pass to tight end Greg Boone on third-and-13 and with a shocking 62-yard hookup to Jarrett Boykin â€” who had 144 yards on six catches â€” on thirdand-34.

catch, Coale scored on a 36-yard pass and Boykin later gave Virginia Tech a 17-7 lead on a controversial 28-yarder (related story is on Page B6). â€œI thought the battle of the line of scrimmage was a draw on both sides of the ball,â€? Cutcliffe said. â€œBut you canâ€™t let a quarterback stay as comfortable as Taylor did, and you canâ€™t let receivers average 24 and 31 yards respectively. â€œThey just big-played us.â€? Duke had plenty of big plays. Quarterback Thad Lewis hit 22 of 40 passes for 359 yards, the secondhighest yardage total allowed by the Hokies since the beginning of the 2004 season. But in between Lewisâ€™
touchdown to King for a 7-0 lead and Lewisâ€™ 4yard score to Austin Kelly with just 25 seconds left, all of Dukeâ€™s drives stalled short of the goal line. Walk-on Will Snyderwine made all four of his field goals, including one from 47 yards, to become the first Duke kicker to connect four times in a decade. His three second-half field goals were set up by a 74-yard pass to Conner Vernon (four catches, 128 yards), a successful fake punt on a run by King, and a 55-yard pass to Donovan Varner. â€œGetting out of there with some kind of points is key, but in a game of this magnitude, we needed to get seven points,â€?

Lewis said. â€œBut hats off to Will. He came in and made those field goals like we needed. â€œSome points are better than no points.â€? The field goals kept hope alive for Dukeâ€™s first victory over a ranked team since 1994 deep into the game, but Hokiesâ€™ fans headed home victorious. â€œWe were sitting right where we wanted to sit,â€? Cutcliffe said. â€œWe got close enough in the fourth quarter to go beat a great team. Once you taste that, you like it. I wouldnâ€™t say we spit it out â€” it wasnâ€™t a choke, but we just didnâ€™t finish the job. When you have that opportunity, youâ€™ve got to go get that.â€?

Points leader Mark Martin (No. 5) drives underneath race leader Dale Earnhardt Jr. on Sunday at Kansas.
STEWART From page 7 tional Speedway last weekend when his Joe Gibbs Toyota made the spectacular-crashes highlight reel, flipping and rolling in a heart-stopping accident. The young driver was not injured and came back Saturday to win the NASCAR Nationwide race at Kansas Speedway, passing teammate Kyle Busch with just two laps to go. The action at Kansas Speedway resumed on Lap 5 with Martin out front but a multi-car wreck one lap later involved at least five cars and brought out another caution flag. Paul Menard triggered the accident getting sideways out of Turn 2, collecting the machines of Michael Waltrip, David Ragan, Max Papis and Bobby Labonte. Martin once again led the restart at Lap 11 but
NEARS From page 7 Brunnhoelzl remained out front until the final restart of the race on lap 106 after Frank Fleming backed into the Turn 2 wall to bring out the final yellow of the race on Lap 102. Myers once again made a pass to lead a lap before Brunnhoelzl made one final pass for the lead and remained out front the rest of the night. Brunnhoelzl led four times for 124 laps. Andy Seuss passed Myers on lap 110 and finished second. Seuss, who also sits second in the points standings, knew he had to win and Brunnhoelzl have some problems if wanted to have a shot at the title. “We had a pretty good car tonight and gave it all we had but George was just a little bit better than we were tonight,” Seuss said. “Now we are just going to go out next week at Caraway and try and end our season with another win.” Brunnhoelzl heads to the final race of the season with a 150-point lead over Seuss. With his lead, all Brunnhoelzl will have to do to win the 2009 NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour championship is start the race. It will be the first title for the third-generation driver from West Babylon, N.Y. Myers, who has enjoyed a string of top-five fin-
Earnhardt moved ahead on Lap 12 and Keselowski passed Martin for second. At 50 laps, the field had spread out with Earnhardt leading. Keselowski was second followed by Johnson, Stewart, Martin, Reutimann, Kahne, McMurray, Kenseth and Montoya. Earnhardt fans were ecstatic seeing the green and white No. 88 out front. Green-flag pit stops started at Lap 53 and once all the leaders had new Goodyears and a full tank of Sunoco gasoline, it was Johnson out front trailed by Keselowski, Johnson, Stewart, Reutimann, Kahne, Martin, Kenseth and Montoya. Earnhardt dropped all the way back to 32nd after a miscue forced him to return to the pits a second time for a missing lug nut. He lost a lap due to the mishap. Another caution slowed the field at Lap 69 when Reed Sorensen ishes over the last third of the season, settled for third place. “Man, we keep getting better and better,” Myers said. “We were really good coming off of Turn 2 but we couldn’t get the car to get a good run off of 4, and that is where George and Andy were able to make their moves by us. We are not where we want to be but we are getting there. I would love to end the season with a win for my guys.” Defending NWSMT champion Brian Loftin was fourth and Jason Myers completed the top five. Gene Pack followed in sixth. Earlier in the day, Burt Myers won his fourth Coors Light Pole Award of the season and 21st of his career, and broke the track record with his lap of 14.606 seconds. The race was slowed five times by caution in the make-up race held after rain forced a postponement earlier in the spring. The Fall Classic will be the season-ending event for the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour next Saturday night at Caraway Speedway. While Brunnhoelzl has the title all but clinched there are several other positions in the top five that could change next weekend in the finale. Seuss leads Burt Myers by just 72 points for second place (2,055-1,983) and Burt Myers leads Loftin by just 35 points for third place (1,983-1,948).
glanced off the Turn 2 wall. Biffle took the lead on the Lap 75 restart with Truex second. Kurt Busch was third and Johnson fourth Biffle and Johnson battled each other fender to fender until Papis got in the way and forced Biffle to give up the lead to Johnson on Lap 102. At that point, it was Johnson, Biffle, Stewart, Keselowski, Montoya, Gordon, Kenseth, Truex, Martin and Hamlin. Keselowski was the first to pit again on Lap 124 but the caution came out when Brian Vickers spun coming out of Turn 4. When the race resumed on Lap 130, just a few laps short of halfway, Biffle was back in the lead ahead of Johnson, Montoya, Gordon, Stewart, Hamlin, Martin, Kyle Busch, Kahne and Reutimann. Keselowski had dropped back to 25th.

Hensley speaks at Womanâ€™s Club TIMES STAFF REPORT
On Sept. 15, 2009, the Arts Department of the Thomasville Womanâ€™s Club welcomed Frank Hensley to tell his inspirational story at its luncheon meeting. His story was one of horror, spiritual courage and success. He left the group with a feeling of hope and compassion for all, but especially for those injured by burns. It was a crisp morning on Feb. 22, 1957, as the Hensley children started their trip to Flat Rock Elementary School. Frank lingered behind to secretly borrow his brotherâ€™s jean jacket. That morning at school was like most others, except that morning there was a program to celebrate George Washingtonâ€™s birthday. After a lunch break, Frank returned to school and was in attendance in a math class when his life was changed. At approximately 1:30, the door of his classroom opened, a teacher yelled something and hurriedly closed the door. The teacher asked what she said, and a boy sitting near the door told her the curtains were on fire. At that time, there were no fire alarms, fire exits, sprinkler systems or even a plan or escape. Everyone started to leave class to go into the hall to escape â€“ everyone, that is, but Frank and another student, who went back to get something from the class. For Hensley, it was to retrieve his brotherâ€™s jacket. When he entered the hall, the smoke was thick and people were stampeding down the hall toward the back of the school. Frank was caught up in all of that
and thrown up against the lockers. When he collected his wits, he thought he heard a sound in the room next to him. He opened the door and blowback occurred, hurling him outside the school. His first instinct was to head for home, but he was steered toward the high school by a high school student he has yet to meet again. He believes that â€œstudentâ€? must have been an angel. At the high school, he was placed in the principalâ€™s office with several others until they could be transported to a hospital. Their own town hospital was being rebuilt due to a fire, so he was transported to the Dobson Hospital. He was lying on a gurney in a room when he woke up and sat up to finally see himself in a mirror above the sink. He saw a blackened form whose skin was literally flowing from his body. He then understood why his brother did not recognize him at the high school when he confronted him before being placed in the principalâ€™s office. He then remembered seeing Jesus and was told he would be all right. He collapsed and woke up at Baptist Hospital many months later with 70 percent of his body covered with burns. He endured many infusions and surgeries, but the hardiest thing he had to endure was when it came time for him to be released from the hospital and his parents took him out for ice cream. Then it happened â€“ the stares and the self-consciousness of his disfigurement. He did not get the ice cream and wished to return to the hospital where he felt safe. He stayed two weeks longer but was then sent

home. The first to see him at his Mt. Airy home was his sister. She screamed at the sight of him, ran to her room and stayed there two days. He began his life at home coping with his disfigurement, and then returned to the hospital for more surgeries that last even to this day. This story ended with a man who learned to cope with his tragedies. Frank Hensley went on to drive a school bus and even met and married one of his passengers, Linda Eads. They have four children and six grandchildren. He graduated from college twice. He has worked in accounting, counseling, retail store management, production management, plant management and regional sales. His second college degree came from a call into ministry in August of 1999. He achieved a masterâ€™s degree in Christian Education that he uses today at Green
Street Baptist Church. It was while attending divinity school that Hensley discovered the need for peer counseling support to burn survivors. A year later, he was put into a situation where his experiences could help others who had been damaged by fire. Today, he and his wife travel to Baptist Hospital to work with burn survivors and their families. Hensley also belongs to the Phoenix Society. This allows other burn victims to see and talk to each other. He also is involved with the group Victims 2 Victors, a support group in Winston-Salem for burn victims. Because of the fire he was in, fire protection and fire drills have been put into place in schools He made his audience aware of the importance of those drills and left an impact of perseverance among all those who listened to his story.

And it often gets easier to follow through with strict treatment regimens, diets, or procedures needed to treat the medical illness. If signs of depression are present, people should ask their doctor for a depression screening. To be screened for depression, people answer a standard set of questions about their symptoms. The resulting score indicates if a person’s depressive symptoms are normal, mild, moderate, or severe.
