Informant in recent spill speaks out BY KARISSA MINN Staff Writer

Winston--Salem Police Department uses officer Mickey Hutchens’ patrol car as a memorial in honor of the officer who slain while responding to a domestic call at Bojangles on Peters Creek Parkway last week.

Officer’s death hits close to home BY ELIOT DUKE Staff Writer

In the world of law enforcement, the loss of an officer in the line of duty ripples across jurisdictions and affects a brotherhood that relies on each other much like any other family. When news of Winston-Salem Police Department Sgt. Mickey Hutchens’ death from a gunshot wound spread on Monday, the loss of a fellow officer brought back

difficult memories from two men who know all too well how hard losing a comrade can be. “I didn’t know him personally but some of our guys have worked with Hutchens him in years past,” Davidson County Sheriff David Grice said. “As coincidence would have it, I’m sitting here in front of a Subway in

Arcadia that got robbed and he worked with our guys that night on the robbery. He was a nice guy from what I understand and just a good officer.” Grice said Hutchens’ death is another reminder of how dangerous being a police officer can be, especially when it comes to a domestic violence call. “Every call potentially can be life-threatening,” said Grice.

The former Thomasville employee whose tip spurred an EPA investigation into this summer’s massive wastewater spill says he still isn’t satisfied with the city’s response. Scott Leonard, former plant operator at Hamby Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant, came to Yadkin Riverkeeper Dean Naujoks in August with concerns that Thomasville was severely underreporting a spill into North Hamby Creek. Naujoks contacted the EPA, and the agency began an investigation that revised the estimated spill amount reported

on Aug. 4 from 385,000 gallons over two days to 15.93 million gallons over a few weeks period. The state Division of Water Quality first fined the city $1,616 and then, after the ammended report, $35,116 for the overflow. While Leonard was working for the City of Thomasville, he noticed unusually low flow into the plant and made note of it in the log book. Leonard said that when he saw the numbers originally reported for the spill, they seemed far too low for the flow data he had observed. The report did confirm something he had heard from other

Unilin asks for job creation waiver BY KARISSA MINN Staff Writer

At its next meeting, Thomasville City Council will set a public hearing for Nov. 16 about a waiver for Unilin Flooring from the minimum job creation clause of its incentive package. The waiver option is a new element in the Davidson County Economic Development Commission’s incentive guidelines this

year, designed to help businesses stay afloat in tough economic times. The EDC also cut its minimum investment requirement in half, from $100,000 to $50,000, to give assistance to smaller businesses and those already in Davidson County. Steve Googe, EDC director, said that the new guidelines allow companies to request a waiver of job and wage requirements as long as double-digit unemployment is re-

ported in any one of the previous six months prior to the request. The original investment requirement would remain in place. “The guidelines are not to say that everybody that has a contract with us would then be entitled to that waiver,” Googe said. “It’s taken on a case-by-case basis.” Normally, the incentive grant amounts are calculated based on

After more than a year of drafts and revisions, the Davidson County Board of Commissioners finally approved the county’s land development plan at its Tuesday meeting. Commissioners Larry Potts and Fred McClure pointed out one more section of the plan they were concerned about — a section dealing with school needs and ways to generate money for those needs. It said that the county should form a joint committee with the school systems to “investi-

gate potential funding mechanisms to pay for growth” and consider giving school boards taxing authority as an option. “We fought hard at one time to keep the school board from having taxing authority,” McClure said. “Whenever the legislature considers that again, they’re going to look at the land use plan that we approved and see in there that we’re okay with that.” The board first approved the plan with the section intact, and then voted 6-1 to allow an amendment that would strike the line about taxing au-

“[Hutchens] was on still yet the most deadly call officers go on and that’s a domestic dispute. Emotions are running so high and people are sometimes at the end of their rope in dealing with their significant other. It can go from zero to 100 in just a couple of seconds.â€? Grice remembers two men he has worked with over the years who lost their lives in the line of duty. Ronnie McGraw went to college with Grice and was shot and killed while raiding a gambling house in Mecklenburg County. George Leigh Lashley was Gibsonville’s chief of police in 1973 when he was shot investigating a suspicious vehicle, and Grice said the loss of one affects all law enforcement. “We obviously support each other and I know it’s a bunch of clichĂŠs talking about brotherhood but that’s how we feel,â€? Grice said. “You have to be close

to one another and support each other. We try to support surrounding law enforcement agencies, at least since I’ve been sheriff.� Former Thomasville Police Chief Larry Murdock was a shift commander in 1977 when he dispatched officers Dennis Spinnett and R.G. Crawford to a domestic dispute call one snowy Saturday night. Both officers were gunned down on Douglas Drive, leaving a police department and a community in a state of shock. “That was devastating to our department and our city,� said Murdock. “When it happened, we were able to make an arrest and get the case cleared up, but it didn’t make it any easier. It was tough on the guys to lose two co-workers. It was a terrible night. My heart goes out to the folks in Winston-Salem. It affects everybody.� Amidst the tragedy, Murdock hopes the Winston-Salem community rallies behind the police department and shows

UNILIN From page 1 the number of jobs created, and there are minimum job creation and wage requirements that companies must meet before qualifying for any money at all. Googe said that when the EDC grants a waiver for a business in a given year, the incentive amount still will be given proportionally with jobs created. Compared to simply granting an extension or giving the company a “pass� for the year, he said, this would keep companies from getting incentives without giving some benefit to the county. In its request, Unilin said that it is on track to invest the expected $80 million by the end of 2009. Due to economic pressures and a delay in plant expansion, though, it needs a waiver from the minimum 65 percent of the target 330 full-time employees for the 2009 grant year.

Traffic stop leads to drug bust TIMES STAFF REPORT

A traffic stop of an outof-town vehicle Thursday led to a big drug bust. According to a press release, at approximately 3:40 p.m. Thursday, the DCSO Interstate Criminal Enforcement Unit conducted a traffic stop on a Chrysler 300 displaying Georgia plates on Interstate 85 South and mile marker 86 for a suspended registration violation. During the stop, officers smelled marijuana emitting from the vehicle and conducted a probable cause search. Officers located ecstasy pills and six grams of pot individually packaged. The driver, Jamie Suzanne Arrendale, 33, of 218 Wagon Wheel Drive in Rex, GA., was arrested and charged with possession with intent to sell and deliver marijuana, felony possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and no operator’s license. The passenger, Porche Jawana Turner, 20, of 995 Martin St. in Atlanta, GA., was arrested and charged with possession with intent to sell and deliver marijuana, felony possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. Both were placed in the Davidson County Jail and issued a $25,000 secured bond each.

the same support Chair City citizens did nearly 30 years ago. “It’s something you never get over,� Murdock said. “It’ll take them awhile to get over it, and I don’t know if you ever do.� Hutchens, a 27-year veteran with the WSPD, was shot last Wednesday while responding to a domestic dispute near the Bojangles on Peters Creek Parkway. Monte Evans went to the restaurant to see his wife, but a shoot-out ensued after the woman called police and the suspect produced a gun. Hutchens was shot in the face and died Monday. Officer Daniel Clark also was shot but he is recovering and already has been released from the hospital. Hutchens’ patrol car has been parked in front of the WSPD this week as a memorial. His funeral will be held at 2 p.m. Friday at Wait Chapel on the campus of Wake Forest University, Staff Writer Eliot Duke can be reached at 88-3578, or duke@tvilletimes.com.

Unilin shuttered its Denton Road facility in late 2008 to focus production at its Cloniger Drive facility, and now its Phase 3 expansion is still a few years away. The completion of the Phase 2 expansion doubled its investment in machinery and equipment, Unilin says, enabling it to hit that target but fall short of the job requirement. “When we broke ground on this plant in 2004, we had planned to have almost 400 employees by this time and be well into the execution of our Phase 3 expansion,� the company’s request states. “The reality is that we will employ approximately half that number at year end 2009.� Googe said that at least three companies have requested a waiver since the guidelines changed, and each case will be studied individually and decided by local governments. “In effect, we are rewriting or redoing the contract that we already had,� Googe said. “That’s why they have to have a public hearing.�

PLAN From page 1 thority from the document. Commissioners passed the revised plan 4-3, with Cathy Dunn, Sam Watford, Max Walser and Billy Joe Kepley voting for it and Don Truell, Potts and McClure voting against. Also at the meeting, commissioners voted to appropriate $64,000 for parking lot expansions and a sewer improvement at Davidson County Community College. This fall, record enrollment caused a parking shortage at the community college. The county received a request from Dr. Mary Rittling, president of DCCC, for $300,000 to pave existing gravel lots and create additional overflow parking. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I did not think, at this point in time, that the county was in a position to appropriate $300,000 from our contingency to take on this type of project, particularly at the beginning of a budget year,â&#x20AC;? said County Manager Robert Hyatt. Hyatt said that he asked Rusty Hunt, vice president of financial and administrative services at the community college, how much it would cost just to grade and gravel the new lot expansions. Hunt gave him a figure of $50,000, so Hyatt recommended that the county combine $31,500 left over from appropriated funds for repairs to the Finch Building with $18,500 from the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget contingency. A separate request for paving could be addressed during next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budgeting process. Commissioner Larry Potts suggested that while DCCC is undergoing construction, they also could make needed improvements to water lines for the

EDC building. Hunt said that the project would cost $14,000, and the board agreed to add that amount to the $50,000 appropriated to the community college. In other news, the Board of commissioners approved a memorandum of understanding for water quality on Tuesday. Planning Director Guy Cornman said that the planning staff has been working with the Piedmont Triad Council of Governments on an initiative program to help improve the water quality status of Rich Fork Creek and Abbotts Creek as they flow toward High Rock Lake. All three bodies of water are listed as â&#x20AC;&#x153;impairedâ&#x20AC;? by the state. The memorandum includes a statement that the High Rock Lake watershed in Davidson County includes 65.9 linear miles of waters impaired for aquatic life and secondary use, as well as 56.7 linear miles of waters impaired for fish consumption. It also contains a designation of Hamby Creek and North Hamby Creek, where nearly 16 million gallons of untreated wastewater are estimated to have recently overflowed from a sewer line, as â&#x20AC;&#x153;priority restoration streams.â&#x20AC;? The document asks for a partnership among the governing bodies of Davidson County, Thomasville, Lexington, High Point, Midway and Wallburg with a shared interest in improving the water quality of the streams and lake. PTCOG has requested the memorandum because it would communicate to the state that all of the governing bodies are working together, giving credibility to PTOGâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stream restoration programs when it asks for grant funding.

Ronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s story

MARILYN TAYLOR Syndicated Columnist

Writerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s note: The following is a story from the perspective of someone who found results from EQ coaching.

I was floored to find out that an anonymous employee had contacted my boss with some disturbing news. Allegations were made concerning my job performance that I could hardly believe. Poor communicator? No follow through? Gimme a break â&#x20AC;&#x201D; I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get to be a manager without being able to handle this stuff. Where were they coming from? Then, the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;opportunityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; came. Work with a coach and get some new ideas about how to connect with this team or face some even more unpleasant consequences. I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t too sure that coaching would help me or my team but hey, I wanted to keep my job. So I agreed to give it a shot. We spent a half-day assessing my goals, values, and work/life patterns. Some of the assessment pieces made sense right away, some didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. But I could see far enough into it to know there might be something to this coaching thing. I could also see that it involved a different way to learn. There were a lot questions and no one was telling me what I had to do. I liked that. Another thing. After a few sessions I started to understand how other people viewed my actions differently from the way I did. I mean just plain old everyday actions like saying â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get back to youâ&#x20AC;?. Doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t everybody say that? I thought that was an OK way to respond when people throw things at you that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect, or that you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have time to deal with right away. Turns out that short statement can get you into a lot of trouble if people think you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t follow through. Or take another everyday action like talking. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m really busy, so I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t waste too many words at work. When we examined the complaints and compared them against

my preferred way of communicating, it was pretty clear. People felt like their complaints werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t being taken seriously, even though I thought I was taking them in. Apparently my outward reactions werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t reflecting my inward reactions ~ or something like that. So we came up with a plan that included a few differences in how I communicated every day. Simple things mostly, like recording concerns on the spot, making routine rounds even when I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think I had time, and developing a system to monitor feedback. Gradually, but consistently, I worked at showing them I could act and react differently. In the end, I just made some small changes. But the payoff for me was big. I knew I was a good guy and after the coaching, I also knew more about how I could be a better manager. I think this is called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;social awarenessâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in EQ language, and I guess I picked up some of that. I also picked up a little more self awareness too, probably not a bad thing good thing for my career. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m feeling pretty good about it all now, but I know there will be more work to do. Good thing Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not afraid of a little hard workâ&#x20AC;Ś.

They’re tragically delicious VIEWPOINT

DAVID HARSANYI Syndicated Columnist How can Americans be expected to wrestle with the myriad dangers that confront them each day? Insalubrious cereal? Unregulated garage sales? Pools of death? Sometimes it’s too much to process. You know what we desperately are crying out for? An army of crusading federal regulatory agents with unfettered power. Who else has the fortitude and foresight to keep us all safe? Mercifully, as The Washington Post recently reported, many of President Barack Obama’s appointees “have been quietly exercising their power over the trappings of daily life ... awakening a vast regulatory apparatus with authority over nearly every U.S. workplace, 15,000 consumer products, and most items found in kitchen pantries and medicine cabinets.” If there’s anything Americans are hankering for in their everyday lives, it’s a vast regulatory apparatus. Hey, it’s dangerous out there. That’s why the new chairman of the Consumer Product Safety Commission recently unleashed 100 agency inspectors to investigate whether swimming pools in America were equipped with drain covers to prevent children from entrapment. Nearly 0.9 children fall prey to this sadistic killer each year. With the compassionate guidance of federal officials, we almost surely will see this number plunge to 0.8 children per year. It should be noted that in each tragic year that passes, an estimated 300 children younger than 4 drown in swimming pools. Why our government sits idly by as this watery assassin targets the most vulnerable among us is a mystery. Don’t get me started on food. Washington will not rest until every one of our children is forcing down some gravelbased Mueslix after morning calisthenics in the name of a glorious preventive care revolution. I get it. They’re fat. This is why I am grateful that one courageous soul finally has stood up to the menacing influence of Big Ce-

real. Yes, Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Margaret A. Hamburg has had enough of deceitful infiltration of Cheerios, demanding that General Mills cease and desist a marketing campaign that peddles the fallacious claim that the oat-based cereal can lower cholesterol. Why stop with oats? Trix are not only for kids, you know. Lucky Charms are nowhere close to being “magically” delicious. What Lucky Charms does do is perpetuate the stereotype that the Irish are a bunch of oft-inebriated jerks —which everyone knows is only true about 70 percent of the time. Isn’t there a statute we can pass in Congress to end the hate? Then again, it’s not only those scheming Irish who are hawking their wares — unregulated — on concrete suburban driveways and inner-city thrift shops across this country. The “Resale Round-up,” launched by the Consumer Product Safety Commission, finally limits the power of the merchants of death who recklessly barter secondhand toys to unsuspecting civilians at low prices. Consider that Tonka truck — the one that you somehow outlasted — contraband. If not, you could be fined thousands of dollars. The only question now is: How did any of us survive this long? Michael Livermore — executive director of the Institute for the Study of Regulation, at the New York University School of Law — points out that “in the Bush administration, the problem was that the political folks were hostile to the mission.” It is no surprise that the Bush administration — a close second to Big Cereal in wickedness — was hostile to regulating the rhinestones on your kids’ denim jackets. Apparently, the depths of its depravity knew no bounds. The mission? Simple. Keeping you safe. Because everyone knows that parents aren’t equipped to keep their children safe until a bureaucrat explains exactly how it’s done. And those parents who are neglecting their children’s safety, well, they always care more once government gets involved. Right?

The promise of peace VIEWPOINT

SUSAN ESTRICH Syndicated Columnist OK, so President Barack Obama hasn’t accomplished enough to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize under the conventional approach. There is, no doubt, some courageous political prisoner somewhere in the world who has been in home confinement for decades fighting a repressive and dictatorial regime and deserves it more. Granted. The thing is, though, I didn’t hear too many of the world’s political prisoners, or their advocates, denouncing the choice of Obama. What I heard, loud and clear, were the president’s critics — the people who disagree with him on things like the economy and health care and whether he should be president in the first place — using the award of the Nobel Prize as part of their daily attack points. The president handled the unexpected award with grace, saying that he would accept it on behalf of American values and for everyone who strives for dignity and justice. The president’s critics handled the unexpected award with no grace at all, and not

much patriotism, either. Nobel Prize purists may take offense at the idea that the committee was trying to support the president’s efforts to pursue diplomacy as the path to peace, but why should conservative Americans care? For a change, the world is on our side, rooting for our president’s success, eager to bolster his standing in the world in the hopes of furthering his and our mission. For a change, the American president is popular abroad; foreign leaders are eager to be associated with him. This is bad? This is something to be suppressed? Not in my book. My guess is that most Americans don’t care one way or the other about the president getting the Peace Prize. With double-digit unemployment, it’s hard to care about where the Olympics will be held in the next decade or who stands on the stage in Stockholm. Symbols don’t count for much in tough times. A few points of unemployment for the Nobel Prize would be an easy trade. The president himself would probably take that deal. But it wouldn’t satisfy his critics. Nothing, it appears, will. If they are willing to attack the Nobel Committee for having the audacity to support our president’s agenda in the world, who or what won’t they attack? Free speech, open debate and, yes, even vicious criticism are essential elements in a democracy. I will defend to the death the right of the president’s critics to say whatever they want about him, so long as they do not

incite violence. But the fact that you have a right to criticize doesn’t mean that’s what you should get up and do every morning, using whatever tinder you can find to make the fire bigger. President Bush’s supporters used to complain, with reason, that by the end of his term, there was nothing the president could do that wouldn’t be ridiculed by his critics. Too many liberals didn’t just disagree with the president; they hated him. And that hate got in the way of the respect every American should have for our president, whoever it is. My conservative readers constantly remind me of this. They are right. But it’s no excuse for doing the same thing to President Obama, and it’s making us look more than a little foolish to a world community that is trying to help us. If you couldn’t care less about who gets the Nobel Peace Prize, I totally understand. If the dissident had won, most of us would have forgotten his or her name by now. What’s troubling is not that many people don’t care a whit about the Nobel Prize and even see it as a distraction. What’s troubling is the loud and vicious criticism from those who seem to care very much for reasons that can only be explained by their opposition to all things Obama — even the promise of peace.

Letters to the Editor To the Editor Out of the few letters to the editor that have come out this campaign season I’ve finally found the need to offer a rebuttal to one. On Tuesday October 13th the letter from Terry Hill made me talk to the paper and ask “What rock have you been living under?” If Mr Hill thinks we are not offering a voice to our citizens why hasn’t he told us that at any of the five town hall meetings we have conducted in the past two years? I believe that this council is more open than previous councils. Citizens can search the city website for

meeting agendas and minutes of previous meetings. In city hall there are hard copies of agendas, minutes, and progress charts on council initiated projects. Citizens have several means to communicate with council and mayor, email, phone, attend a committee meeting, attend a town hall meeting, sign up for the public forum, or submit a request to address the council if more time is needed. The easiest way to get a back and forth discussion with the council is to attend a committee meeting or town hall meeting. My

SPILL

OBITUARIES

From page 1 Baptist Childrensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Home in Thomasville. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d heard numerous times from some of the maintenance guys that one of the lines coming into the plant was in bad shape,â&#x20AC;? Leonard said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The contractor who before had fixed a section offered to fix the remainder, and the city told him â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;no,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; that they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to do it right then. [This line] was something that should have been fixed in the past and was not fixed.â&#x20AC;? Craver said that he did not know of such a contractor or an offer to repair the whole line. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think every city has aging sewer lines,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We did do a repair on that line in 2002, and I know they also did a repair on it last year.â&#x20AC;? Leonard worked at Thomasvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hamby Creek plant for a little more than two years and previously worked for the City of High Point for eight months. In total, he has worked in water treatment for about 15 years. He now lives in Brunswick County and no longer works for the City of Thomasville â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a move that was already planned before the spill occurred. Once a large spill was reported from a line that was known to have problems, Leonard said city officials should have contacted Plant Superintendent Misty Conder to ask if the flow had been low recently. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Either itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lack of communication where they truly didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know because the superintendent didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell them, or itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s incompetence that they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ask â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all trying to hide something, which is what I feel like is going on,â&#x20AC;? he said. When told of Leonardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assessment, Craver said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still investigating. I have no response to that.â&#x20AC;? According to Leonard, Conder was in charge of checking the flow at the plant and investigating if there are signs of a leak or spill. In a press release sent out by the Yadkin Riverkeeper, Leonard said he believed that Conder and Public Utilities Director Morgan Huffman both knew that untreated wastewater was flowing into Hamby Creek in mid-July, and suggested everyone take a polygraph test. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[Conder] signed the log book,â&#x20AC;? Leonard said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She told another employee that the flow was down by about 600,000 gallons a day.â&#x20AC;? Craver said that he reviewed the log book in September and noticed a single entry made by Leonard. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I believe it was either on the 25th or 26th of July, and he said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Flow seems low,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Craver said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the only thing in my research that I found [that drew attention to it].â&#x20AC;? He said that Thomasvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s investigation into the spill is ongoing, and an independent firm is interviewing all of the employees â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including Misty Conder â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to find out what they knew and when. Dean Lambeth, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s maintenance and construction superintendent, stepped down last month in connection with the spill.

When it was announced that Thomasville would be rejoining the Central Carolina Conference, there were probably not too many people that would have said East Davidson would stand a chance against them on the gridiron. With its dominating 17-7 victory over Lexington last Friday, though, East suddenly has those doubters thinking an upset is not all that far-fetched. The Golden Eagles (4-3, 1-0) will invade Cushwa Stadium for a 7:30 kickoff, which will also be homecoming for the Bulldogs. Thomasville turned back its second straight opponent last week by a 21-0 score, beating Central Davidson in Southmont.

Ledford readies for depleted Cougars

E. Davidson Golden Eagles @ Thomasville Bulldogs Cushwa Stadium 7:30 p.m. SW Randolph Cougars @ Ledford Panthers Panthers Stadium 7:30 p.m. It will be the first meeting between the two since 1996, when THS hammered the Eagles 35-0. From 1985-96, the Bulldogs went 12-0 against East, including a 76-7 flogging in 1991. The momentum from the Lexington game might just be enough to help East snap that streak. “That helped our confidence level and showed them they can compete in confer-

ence,” said East coach Bryan Lingerfelt. “The hardest thing will be duplicating that kind of effort.” The two teams share the same philosophy on offense of running the ball first and passing second, while controlling the line of scrimmage. East has ran the ball effectively with tailback Dylan Gallimore, who has rushed for 946 yards on the year. He does not possess the breakaway speed as Thomasville’s Kesean Greene and Quin Riley, but what he does do is run the ball right at the defense for five yards at a time. There are no secrets as to how to stop the offense of East for THS head coach Allen Brown. “He is strong and physical, and has a good spirit about him,” Brown said about Gal-

A WELL-DESERVED HONOR

BY MATTHEW AMICK Times Correspondent The Ledford Panthers will celebrate their Homecoming game this Friday night against the Southwestern Randolph Cougars. A f ter both teams lost their conference openers, they will certainly be eager Henderson to pick up their first victory in the MidPiedmont 3-A. Last week, the Panthers (3-4, 0-1) struggled against North Forsyth, failing to weather the Storm, as they were defeated 19-6. “Their speed got to us on their first possession,” said Ledford head coach Chuck Henderson. “I think they are a good football team and they are especially good at throwing the ball and getting it into open space.” Although the Panthers defense played hard, stymieing the Cougar attack by forcing five 3-and-outs in the second half, Southwest’s defense was even more resilient. “I thought our defense played a good game overall,” said Henderson. “We dropped a couple of balls that I thought we could have got, but we did end up with interception and a blocked punt.” The Cougars (3-4, 0-1) suffered a beatdown to the tune of 34-0, against Southern Guilford last Friday. After having the football inside their opponents one-yard line, Southwestern Randolph was flagged for an illegal procedure penalty. Then, the ensuing field goal attempt was blocked and returned for a touchdown. This demoralizing turn of events proved more than they could overcome. One of the key factors coming into the match up this Friday night will be stamina and depth.

Withers to join county sports hall

‘When you get a certain age you think it is all over, but here I am getting honored for something else ... I am looking forward to it.’ Jennings Withers

BY ZACH KEPLEY Sports Editor This Saturday at the J. Smith Young YMCA in Lexington, Jennings W. Withers will be honored for a lifetime of excellence by being inducted into the Davidson County Sports Hall of Fame. His achievements in life are numerous and his dedication over the years is what has led him to this distinguished honor. Withers is already a member of the Guilford College Football Hall of Fame, but he considers this to be even more special. “I was totally surprised and I really appreciate it,” said Withers. “I am honored to be nominated for this organization. Even though I was honored at Guilford, this tops it. When I came to Thomasville I wasn’t sure about Davidson County coming from a bigger city. It

From there, he received a scholarship to play football at Elon, where he was an all-con-

ference linebacker and center on the North State Conference championship team. After serving in the United States Air Force during World War II from 1942-45, he attended Guilford College, eventually graduating in 1949. Withers was named to

Guilford’s all-time football team, and in 1983 his excellence on the gridiron translated to an induction into the Guilford College Football Hall of Fame. He went into teaching and moved on to Baptist Children’s Home in Thomasville where he served as athletic director and a head coach. His tenure with the children’s home ended in 1959, and then he went to Thomasville High School to re-establish the wrestling program that had been nonexistent since the 1940s. There was not much preparation for the wrestling season and no funds to be had, but Withers made it work and had instant success. There were some 50 athletes that joined the team, and it took two practice sessions to work with them all.

Winston-Salem bred leaders in Yankees-Red Sox rivalry BASEBALL CORNER

KEVIN REID Times Correspondent The elimination of the Boston Red Sox from the 2009 Major League Baseball postseason doesn’t diminish the irony of Triad origin about the rival of the BoSox and the New York Yankees. Joe Girardi, manager of the Yankees, played for the Winston-Salem Spirits as a Chicago Cubs farmhand in 1987. His manager that year was Brad Mills, who is now bench coach of the Red Sox. Advancing with Girardi to face the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in the American League Championship Series are quite a few former Triad ballplayers. This is due, in part because the Yankees had a presence in Greensboro for so many years and key players from that Yankee era at War Memorial Stadium became key players of the latest Yankees dynasty, which began in 1996. Leading the way is shortstop Derek Jeter, who played briefly for the Greensboro Hornets in 1992, the year he was the Yankees No. 1 draft pick. Jeter played

in Greensboro for the entire 1993 season and this year he surpassed Lou Gehrig as the Yankees all-time leader in hits. Jeter is the all-time leader in many post-season categories, including hits. He continues to pad those records, as well as another future Hall of Famer, Mariano Rivera, the all-time leader in saves. Rivera made a brief appearance on the 1993 Hornets while on a rehabilitation stint and was a starting pitcher on the ’91 Hornets. Two other significant long-time Yankees who played for the ’92 Hornets are Jorge Posada and Andy Pettitte. Posada, the catcher for the Hornets is arguably the greatest Yankees catcher since Yogi Berra. A case could be made for Thurman Monson, AL MVP of 1976, but Munson’s death, while piloting a private plane, robbed him of the longevity Posada has enjoyed. Pettitte has also enjoyed a long fruitful career. This year he won 14 regular season games, giving him a total of 229 overall and 192 for the Yankees. The dominant pitcher on the Yankees ’09 staff, however, is C.C. Sabathia, who went 19-9. Sabathia broke in professional baseball with the Burlington Indians in 1998. The Angels do not have much this year in Triad connections, but there were quite a few on the two teams that have been eliminated. The Yankees beat a team

with two former Winston-Salem Warthogs in its bullpen. John Rauch, the tallest player in baseball history was minor league player of the year in 200, when he went 11-3 for WinstonSalem and 5-1 for the Birmingham Barons. In his seventh season and on his fifth big league team, the 6-foot, 11-inch right-hander went 7-3 in 75 games this year. Right-hander Matt Guerrier, a teammate of Rauch on the ’00 Hogs saved 19 games for Winston-Salem that year before also being promoted to Birmingham. Also, both pitched briefly for the Hogs in ’99. A third former Warthog, Joe Crede was the Twins third baseman this year, but an August injury finished him for the season. Yet another former Winston-Salem Warthog played in the ALDS, outfielder Brian Anderson of the Red Sox. The Red Sox also had a strong ACC presence, including pitcher Daniel Bard from the North Carolina team that came within one game of winning the College World Series in 2006. Also from the ACC are two former Georgia Tech stars on the Red Sox, catcher Jason Varitek and right fielder J.D. Drew. The Yankees have a former Yellow Jacket themselves: first baseman Mark Teixiera. Just from the former Triad and ACC players on the team, it is easy to see why the Yankees are so dominant.

AREA SPORTS BRIEFS SOFTBALL NMS edges Ledford in two Ledford Middle School dropped two close games to North Davidson Middle School Tuesday losing the first game 4-3 and the second game 3-1. Madelyn Walker took the loss in both games for the Panthers, but gave an outstanding effort in both. Julie Searcy led the Panthers with a triple and RBI in the first game and Destiny DeBerry had a hit, two stolen bases and two runs scored. In the second game DeBerry had a double and one run scored for the Panthers. DeBerry also added a stolen base. The losses drop Ledford to 12-2 on the season as North Davidson improves to 14-0.

East will have a little extra motivation against the Bulldogs with former quarterback Sam Nelson, now the signalcaller for Thomasville. They would like nothing more than to get in the backfield and frequently visit their former teammate, but Lingerfelt would rather them worry about the big picture instead of just one guy. “We have to beat Thomasville and it is not just about one player,” said Lingerfelt. “We have to execute and not worry

It will not take perfection for the Eagles to win, but they will need to come pretty close. “They do not beat themselves any and are very seldom out of position,” said Lingerfelt. “They tackle and run the ball well, so we are going to have to avoid silly mistakes.” The game will be aired live on TimeWarner Channel 13 by ProTeem Sports.

What’s the Fed?

Attempts at central banking

Federal Reserve Act is law

If you’ve been following the news about the U.S. economy*, you know that many Americans are going through tough times. Some headlines mention people who have lost their jobs or cut back on their spending. Your family may be trying to save money, too. Some of the news is about the Federal Reserve System, often called “the Fed.” This week, The Mini Page explores what the Fed is and its role in protecting our economy.

The idea of a central bank came up again and again during the early days of the United States. Some wanted a central bank to create one currency, or paper money in circulation, for all the states. They thought it would help make the economy more secure. Others feared such a bank would give bankers and businesses too much power. When panics about the stock market caused “runs” on banks by people trying to withdraw all their money, officials knew that some form of central control was necessary.

In 1912, President Woodrow Wilson asked Carter Glass, a U.S. representative from Virginia, and economics President Woodrow professor H. Parker Willis Wilson to come up with a proposal for a central bank that would divide its powers among different parts of the country. The Federal Reserve Act became law in 1913. It was a compromise, or settlement of differences, between the central bank that private bankers wanted and the decentralized bank that much of the public wanted.

*An economy is a country’s system of producing, selling and buying goods and services.

Wolfpack defense had no answer for Duke BY JOE JOHNSON Durham Herald Sun RALEIGH — At least against Wake Forest, N.C. State pressured the quarterback. There was none of that from the Wolfpack on Saturday, as Duke quarterback Thaddeus Lewis had a banner day with career highs in touchdown passes (5), completions (40) and passing yards (459). N.C. State’s secondary, already under suspicion, proved unable to stop the opposition for the second week in a row. Duke’s offense dismantled the Wolfpack in much the same way Wake Forest did a week ago. The only difference being that the Blue Devils protected Lewis a lot better than Wake Forest protected Riley Skinner. N.C. State had six sacks against the Demon Deacons but Duke allowed only two. “A lot of double-teaming and slide protection,” N.C. State defensive end Willie Young said. “They had a game plan that was on point and good enough to beat us.” Part of Duke’s game plan was to throw. And throw. And throw. And N.C. State knew to expect it; the Wolfpack just couldn’t stop it. “We knew it was com-

WITHERS From page 7 “We didn’t have equipment and they were not prepared for a wrestling program, but we went 66 and (George) Cushwa took notice,” he said. “The booster club gave us $1,500, and so we bought a mat and some uniforms.” The success continued as his teams won a North Carolina State championship in 1961, three Western North Carolina High School Activities Association championships from 1960-62, and two district titles in 1961 and 1962. He retired from coaching in 1968, leading Thomasville to a 92-372 record over a 10-year span. Along the way he coached Phil Kanoy, who was inducted into the National Wrestling Hall of Fame. Kanoy was a football player who participated in wrestling to stay in shape in the offseason, but Withers wound up having a major impact on his life. The two became close over the years and Withers helped Kanoy when he went on to become a wrestling coach. Kanoy will introduce Withers on Saturday, as one final tribute to a man who helped him in every aspect of life. “He is a second father figure to me and we have been real close,” said Kanoy. “We all have a teacher or coach somewhere down the line we were very close to, and he was very instrumental

ing,” Young said. “We did the best we could up front. We have no control of what goes on in the secondary or with the linebackers.” N.C. State defensive back Clem Johnson said some of the same mistakes that were made against Wake Forest in the second half cropped up again against the Blue Devils. But this time Duke had the entire game to exploit the Wolfpack’s weaknesses. “They understood that we’d been struggling a little bit in the secondary for the past few weeks,” Johnson said. “They used three-step drops and quick passes, and they were making yards after catch. “It’s the same mistakes. It’s a lot of little stuff. Little stuff here and there is turning out to be big mistakes.” Lewis, who came within 20 yards of the Duke single-game record, rarely was hurried, much less touched. In the first two Duke scoring drives, Lewis hit 14 of 16 passes. Most of those were of the short variety and the Blue Devil receivers made most of their yardage after catching the ball. “They had a good game plan for us,” O’Brien said. “They were max protecting. They weren’t going to let us pressure the

in my life. I often wonder where I would have been had I not come to Thomasville. I might not have even had anything to do with wrestling.” An administration position as principal of Thomasville Junior High occupied Withers’ time until 1984, but he remained close to wrestling going to camps with the Thomasville program. Today, Withers enjoys his time collecting and selling antiques. “When Thomasville Emporium opened up a friend came to me and said I should go up there and get me a space to sell my antiques,” said Withers. “So I did, and have been with them ever since. It is called “Withers Wonders” because I wonder where I got it all.” At the age of 88, Withers never expected to receive such a prestigious honor this late in life. But he has done so much for the Thomasville community and all of Davidson County, it is one last recognition that is well deserved. “When you get a certain age you think it is all over, but here I am getting honored for something else,” he said. “I am looking forward to it.” Others to be inducted Saturday are Patty Shoaf, Danny Thomas, Jim Lippard and the late William Hall Jr. Tickets for the 6:30 p.m. event are $25 and can be purchased at the Thomasville Chamber of Commerce.

quarterback. Whether we were man or zone, we weren’t even in the same area code with some of their [receivers] sometimes.” And when Duke’s offense appeared to be ready to falter, Lewis stepped up with more accurate passes. The Blue Devils converted 13 of 19 third downs, including a slew of third-and-longs. “Incredible,” O’Brien said of Lewis’ performance. “It was a great percentage. It was a lot of yards. He had some guys running wide open that we didn’t do quite the job we should have. “He certainly made us pay when we made mistakes.” N.C. State’s generosity in the passing game was juxtaposed against the stinginess against the run again. The Blue Devils managed only 43 yards on 35 rushing attempts. But most of those rushes came in the second half after the Blue Devils got time on their side. “Things have changed dramatically the way people have started playing against our defense,” O’Brien said. “We’re going to have to evaluate what we’re seeing and how best we can defend it. People aren’t even trying to run the ball on us anymore.”

Carolina football has tough road ahead BY BRIANA GORMAN Durham Herald Sun CHAPEL HILL — North Carolina’s bye week couldn’t have come at a better time. The Tar Heels are halfway through their season and enter their off week sitting at a 4-2 overall, thanks to a 42-12 victory over Georgia Southern on Saturday. But while UNC boasts a winning record overall, it sits at the bottom of the conference with a 0-2 mark against ACC opponents. The Tar Heels have a chance to climb back into the Coastal Division title race, however, as they close out their season with six consecutive ACC games — starting with a Thursday night matchup against Florida State on Oct. 22. “We’re not so much satisfied with the 4-2,” junior cornerback Kendric Burney said. “We definitely wanted to be 6-0 going into [the FSU] game, but things didn’t work out that way. But we’re still in a good position.

“This stretch right here is going to be as tough as it gets. We’ve got to get together, and we’ve definitely got to become a better team.” Here’s a look at the Tar Heels’ year so far and what they face in the second half of the season. How they got here UNC might boast a winning record through the first half of the season, but two of the wins were against Football Championship Subdivision teams and both losses were against ACC opponents. UNC started the season 3-0 for the first time since 1997, thanks to a blowout over The Citadel and victories over Connecticut and East Carolina, but stumbled after that. The offense failed to show up in the ACC opener at Georgia Tech and again at home the following week against a previously winless Virginia squad. UNC scored a combined 10 points in the back-to-back losses and managed just 56 yards rushing combined.

quarterback will be back after being injured over the last game or two.” Ledford’s coach does have some history and experience against the Cougars. Henderson remembers from his days at High Point Central that they will be a tough team that will continue to play hard until the final whistle.

Where they are now The Tar Heels began the year with aspirations of an ACC title, but six weeks into the schedule, they are still looking for consistent production from their offense and a conference victory. The offense got a shot of confidence from a blowout win over Georgia Southern, but it still looked shaky at times. There is no question the offense has been hurt by a slew of injuries, but it will need to improve if the Tar Heels hope to win any more games. The defense, on the other hand, has been impressive through the first six games. They are ranked No. 5 in the nation and kept UNC in the games against Georgia Tech and Virginia when the offense struggled. The defense also seems to have solved their turnover woes as they forced six against Georgia Southern.

Where they’re headed The Tar Heels need to finish 7-5 for a shot at a bowl game, which means they’ll need to win at least three more games in the rest of their suddenly daunting ACC schedule. After hosting Florida State next Thursday, UNC travels to Blacksburg, Va., for a Thursday night matchup with Virginia Tech. The Hokies are ranked No. 4 in the nation and have looked better and better each week. UNC then returns to Chapel Hill for games against Duke and Miami. A win over the Blue Devils isn’t a guarantee anymore, as they put on a strong showing in a win over N.C. State on Saturday. Miami — Coach Butch Davis’ former team — is ranked ninth in the latest AP poll. The Tar Heels then end the year with trips to Boston College and N.C. State. UNC has a difficult road the rest of the way, and while three more wins may be tough, it’s not impossible.
