HPU helps teachers further education

Safety urged as Halloween approaches BY ELIOT DUKE Staff Writer

was a seamstress with a garage full of material. We went over and got it, and that’s how we get most of our supplies.”

With Halloween right around the corner, local enforcement agencies are encouraging people to have a good time while taking some simple precautions to ensure a safe Saturday night. One of the first things parents are urged to do is make sure an adult is supervising any children under the age or 12. Davidson County Sheriff ’s Office recommends planning any trick-or-treat routes in advance and advising children to travel only in familiar areas. Parents should tell their children to stop only at apartments and houses that are well lit and never go inside a stranger’s home. Children also should keep a slip of paper that has their name, address and phone number in the event they get lost from the group. “We hope everybody pays attention to who their kids are with and where they’re at,” Sheriff David Grice said. “Halloween is second to Christmas or their birthday in terms of excitement.” Children also need to be aware of traffic. With all the excitement of Halloween, Grice worries that some children may lose track of the streets and could wander into traffic. The fall time change will make it darker earlier and with children wearing masks and other costumes, the chances of an accident increase, particularly around driveways and alleys. “Be careful and watch out for cars,” said Grice. “If they wear a mask, make sure they can see. They run around and get candy and get to dress up, but sometimes they forget about the streets. The

High Point University is partnering with Davidson County and Thomasville City Schools to help teachers further their education without having to travel to the HPU campus. TCS Superintendent Keith Tobin said that the program, which will take place at a school in Davidson County, will offer either a master’s degree in administration or an addon license for an already existing master’s degree. “If we’re going to be successful today, we’ve got to partner with our universities and our colleges to make sure that we’re all on the same page,” Tobin said. “I believe that this offers our teachers and staff a convenience that they wouldn’t have if they had to go to the campus to take the course. They’re actually bringing it to us and to our teachers.” Approximately 60 teachers are currently enrolled, according to a press release from HPU, and Tobin said that seven of those are from the county school system. They will make up a cohort that will go through the master’s degree program together, adding an element of networking. Many of the teachers enrolled may be interested in entering school administration, Tobin said, but some may simply be looking to gain the experience — along with the increased earning potential — that comes along with a master’s degree. “I think it’s a big benefit to our folks, no doubt,” Tobin said.

Children at Thomasville Primary School hold bears and books given to them Tuesday as part of the Smart Bear Program, which encourages children to read more books.

‘Bear Necessities’ Program encourages students to read more BY ELIOT DUKE Staff Writer Marie Bentley epitomizes the word commitment. For nearly 30 years, Bentley has dedicated her time and efforts into the Smart Bear program that encourages children to read with a furry friend and a book. The passage of time and struggling economy has limited both her resources and available help, but that hasn’t stopped Bentley from continuing her mission of getting kids to read more. On Tuesday, students at Thomasville Primary School got to enjoy the fruits of Bentley’s labor as she brought the Smart Bear program back to the Chair City. “The intent is to get the children to read because they don’t need to be in front of the TV all the time,” Bentley said. “You

have to read to get through this world.” The program started out with Bentley speaking to students on the importance of reading as she showed the children the different stages of how her bears evolve from an empty piece of cloth into the stuffed animal they will take home. All of the materials used for the bears are donated from anyone that wants to help out. The stuffing comes from recycled plastic bottles donated by an Asheboro company and all the books are acquired in thrift stores or local Salvation Armies. “We start from scratch, taking a piece of material and make it into a bear,” said Bentley. “We sew it up, stuff it and the children get to keep the bear. They can be washed and dried. One woman called and said her grandmother had died and she

Addition makes lunch easier to swallow BY KARISSA MINN Staff Writer

TIMES PHOTO/KARISSA MINN

The new cafeteria expansion at Ledford Middle School has made lunch more enjoyable for staff and students.

Community Sponsor

Students and teachers at Ledford Middle School now have twice the room, and a bit more time, to eat lunch in the cafeteria. Approximately 2,000 square feet of additional space was added this year, doubling the size of the cafeteria. The addition was approved by the Davidson County Board of Education in August of 2008, and construction began that December. Principal Evan Myers said that the project was completed this

summer, so students are enjoying the new cafeteria addition for the first time this school year. “It’s just a better environment,” Myers said. “I’ve been around here seven years now, and if there’s one thing that we’ve done to improve the climate and environment of this school, it was that addition.” The cafeteria is located at the front of the school, so three more walls and a roof were added to the side of the building, and the former outer wall was turned into a divider. New tables with attached stools were bought for the whole cafeteria, as well.

Myers said that in the smaller cafeteria, there was barely room for students to walk between the tables, and food spills would happen frequently as people bumped into and tripped over each other. “My kids went to school here, and this project was needed years ago,” he said. “We’ve got 987 students enrolled now.” Myers said that the school used to start lunch at 10:45 a.m. and end it at 1:30 p.m. Now, lunch begins at 11 a.m. and finishes at 1:15, because the larger cafeteria allows

The festival will still be held in conjunction with the Richard Petty Fan Club Convention the same weekend. Event organizers are pleased that the nearby Martinsville Sprint Cup Race will be held the day after the festival, bringing extra race visitors to the area. The 12,000 sq. ft. Richard Petty Museum will be showcased, celebrating the 25th anniversary of Petty’s 200th NASCAR win. Public tours will also be available of the Victory Junction Gang Camp, which is celebrating its fifth anniversary of serving children with life-threatening illnesses.

NASCAR Day continues to offer something for everyone: Handmade crafts, food booths, live bands and entertainment, NASCAR Showcars, vintage antique and custom cars, dragsters, souvenir vendors, games and amusements for kids of all ages, including a rock climbing wall and racing simulator. The Winston Cup Old Timers Club will also be in attendance with a display of vintage race cars. Another event that has also become a huge part of the festival is the Success by 6 Deep River Duck Race. Festival Grand Marshal, Richard Petty, will be signing autographs at the center of the festival from 5-7 p.m.

“A Festival of Hymns and Anthems,” congregational singing led by two choirs in a church sanctuary, will be held at Heidelberg United Church of Christ on Sunday, Oct. 25th, at 5 p.m. It is the last in this year’s series, “Great Music from Heidelberg.” The church was founded in 1894, and the stained glass windows are from Germany. The Palmer Memorial Organ was built by Schantz Pipe Organ Builders in 1955. The program will include anthems and congregational hymns, a processional hymn and recessional hymn. It will involve torch bearers, a processional cross, the First Presbyterian Church Choir, Director of Music Dorothy Bowen Klass, the Chancel Choir of Heidelberg UCC, and Organist/Choirmaster Josef English Walker. The readers are Mike Lamm, Minister of First Presbyterian Church, and Jamie Fonville, Minister of Heidelberg UCC. There will be a “meet and greet” following the festival in the Fouts Fellowship Hall, provided by the Women’s Guild of the church. All are invited to attend. Admission is free.

Throw me a pillar TaylorMade

MARILYN TAYLOR Business Columnist

Doing a Google search of the term “Four Pillars” brought some unexpected results. The Four Pillars Policy, the Four Pillars of Investing, the Four Pillars of Sustainability and the Four Pillars of Social Media Marketing were among the first page hits. The Four Pillars of Alzheimer’s Prevention, the Four Pillars of Strength Training and the Four Pillars of Health were among page two options. And on it went for page after page. It seems that the four pillars idea is not only well established, but permeates many different disciplines and schools of thought. We started our EQ journey several weeks

ago with the idea that Emotional Intelligence, according to authors Bradberry and Greaves, also rests on four pillars. They are: Self-Awareness, Self-Management, Social Awareness and Relationship Management. One builds upon another in an undeniable progression. Just as one must master the techniques of holding a paint brush and mixing colors before painting a masterpiece, so one must learn the ropes of intra and inter-personal relationships before becoming skilled in the art of relationship management. A variety of tips, techniques and stories have been offered in this column as building blocks in the EQ process. Last week featured Ron’s Story — a fictitious account of how one person found a way to improve his Emotional Intelligence skills and his worklife satisfaction through coaching. Now we turn our attention to the fourth and final pillar, whose complexity challenges even the best leaders among us. “Interpersonal relationship” Relationship

Get Connected! Stay Connected!

management has been defined as the ability to inspire, influence, and develop others while “Conflict management” managing conflict. What does good relationship management look like? Emotional Intelligence expert Daniel Goleman offers the following components: • Developing others • Influence • Communications • Conflict management • Visionary Leadership • Catalyzing change • Building bonds • Teamwork and collaboration Do these sound familiar? If you have ever been involved in a Leadership Development program, chances are you were exposed to some or all of the components above. If you’ve participated in solid supervisory training, you likely studied or practiced them. But these skills aren’t just for managers anymore. In these days of partnering, teaming, and social networking, ALL stand to benefit from relation-

ship building skills. In the weeks ahead, we will explore aspects of relationship building as listed above. We will focus primarily on how to apply these concepts in the world of work. Your comments and questions are ALWAYS welcomed! So, let’s grab a hot coffee and settle into a comfy spot to read them over. And hey … would somebody please throw me a pillar?

Letters to the Editor To the Editor:

As I brushed off the season’s first frost this morning, I realized that the warm days of summer have gone and the blustery cold of winter is yet to come. But I am also reminded that in this autumn of soccer, football, street festivals and magnificent changes in leaf color, we are approaching a very important municipal election. Indeed, Election Day is Nov. 3 and each of us has the opportunity to vote. Thomasville has a healthy list of very qualified candidates running for its city council and mayoral positions. Their philosophies have been identified, their signage is in place and the hand-shaking and letter-writing are underway. The citizens of Thomasville also have two referenda to consider. I write in support of Referendum 2, which allows for staggered terms of our city council. A staggered-term council will always have members who are familiar with the system of governance because there will always be someone on the council who has a year or two of service experience. It is quite difficult to learn the nuances of all of the budgetary, legal and policy-making issues that are so important as a council member; the learning curve is significant and it typically takes a year or longer to learn “the ropes.” Staggered terms will allow council to focus more on the needs of the city rather than the needs of the next election. Staggered terms have worked quite effectively for our County Commissioners since 1992; even in years when new Commissioners have been elected, the veteran members were able to provide strong leadership to keep the governing process moving forward. On Nov. 3, go to the polls. Vote for the candidates of your choice. I urge you to vote YES on Referendum 2. The Thomasville City Council deserves the strong continuity of leadership that staggered terms will ensure. E. Thompson Smith, Jr. Thomasville

To the Editor:

In the Oct. 16 edition of the Times, David Yemm sent in a letter asking me, Terry Hill, “What rock have you been living under?” My rock is Thomasville, where I see Yemm and others imposing their will on the people and not listening to the citizens. I am glad Yemm endorsed the current Mayor by saying

he “serves as an ambassador to our city and ... promotes Thomasville.” After all, that is the mayor’s job. Another council member has already sent me an email telling me that will be my job if I am elected. She also informed me that is all I will be able to do and nothing more. Wow is she going to be surprised. Yemm stated that the council is the voice of the people. I do believe the people will have a lot to say about that issue on Election Day. I have attended recent city council meetings, and was shocked to see that citizens who wish to speak up are stopped after only two minutes, even if there has been no prior open meeting on the subject. Council members don’t take questions in the council meetings – are these the same meetings where Yemm says you have a voice? Yemm stated they’ve held five town hall meetings in two years. However, in his Channel 13 candidate segment, Councilman George Burton states that the council used to hold town meetings, that he thought they went well and they should do them again, Doesn’t this beg the question of why the town hall meetings were stopped? Were the questions posed by citizens just too tough for some council members to answer? Mr. Yemm stated, “The biggest thing he has been a part of is the revitalization of downtown.” He should not boast of this job as councilman when everyone is talking about downtown revitalization as if it needs to still be done. His revitalization was a fountain, lights, clock, gazebo, and an amphitheater. My opinion is that this did not revitalize anything — it glosses over work that needs to be done. These enhancements look nice but do not add jobs. They do, however, add a cost of upkeep and maintenance to the citizens of Thomasville. If you elect me as your mayor, I promise to provide a forum for you, the citizens of Thomasville, to share your concerns openly. I also promise to answer your questions truthfully. On Election Day, vote for Terry Hill for mayor. Then, vote for only candidates for city council who are committed to improving Thomasville — not just changing it so that it looks different and call it revitalized. Thomasville you have always been my rock and with your help I will improve you not just change the way you look. Terry Hill Thomasville

Fox News is biased? So what? VIEWPOINT

DAVID HARSANYI Syndicated Columnist Those of you paying even the slightest attention these days realize that President Barack Obama has been the target of a near-criminally biased and antagonistic mass media. Someone had to put a stop to the madness. The organization most persistently engaged in reporting on issues that put the administration in a poor light has been Fox News. Or should I say Fox “News.” Unfair. Unbalanced. Uncooperative. “They’re not really a news station,” White House senior adviser David Axelrod recently explained. “It’s not a news organization so much as it has a perspective,” chief of staff Rahm Emanuel added. Mao enthusiast and communications director Anita Dunn claims that Americans should not “pretend” Fox is a “news network the way CNN is.” For those who missed it, the key phrase to remember is “not a news organization.” Dunn also asserted that when the president “goes on Fox, he understands he’s not going on it really as a news network at this point. He’s going on to debate the opposition.” Who knew debat-

ing the future of the nation is such a ghastly thought? So what is the underlying rationale for this hypersensitive strategy of trying to delegitimize the voice of cable opposition? “We’re doing what we think is important to make sure news is covered as fairly as possible,” a White House official explained to Politico. It’s about time someone charged the White House with the task of “making sure” news coverage is “fair.” It’s “important” work, you see. After all, who better than the executive branch — supposedly in the business of representing the entire nation — to decide whether a station qualifies as a legitimate news organization? Then again, does biased political coverage disqualify one from reporting legitimate and useful news stories? Fox News may not be able to unsheathe the intellectual rigor of Obama favorites David Letterman and Jay Leno, but it has covered numerous stories in the past few months that otherwise would have gone unnoticed. Remember that ACORN’s penchant for aiding the childenslaving pimp set was a valid story. Uncovering the radical ramblings of Van Jones — a man tasked with creating “green” jobs even though he never had created a job for anyone but himself — was legitimate enough for the czar to abdicate his crown. The National Endowment for the Arts’ attempt to politicize art was genuine enough to elicit a White House apology. And whatever its intent, Dunn’s inane admission that all-star mass murderer Mao Zedong was one of her “favorite political philosophers” (insert Hitler for Mao, a Bush administration

figure for Dunn and stir) is a story worth hearing. Hey, Mao was no dummy. That’s probably why Dunn is employing the noted dictator’s notion that one should “despise the enemy strategically but take him seriously tactically.” In this case, it is precisely the legitimacy of the stories Fox News covers — rather than the bias of the station — that drives the administration to conflate news with opinion. The public doesn’t need to be reminded that Fox News Channel is a right-wing cable news network any more than it needs to hear that MSNBC is a left-wing network. We can handle all the opinions. In reality, the symbiotic relationship between right and left continues. Good for Fox News. Good for Obama. Even so, it doesn’t change the fact that the nation’s most dominant government entity — an entity that allegedly represents all Americans — is using tax dollars and its considerable influence to try to squash a privately owned news organization that disagrees with it. In the sinister years of the former administration, this would have been referred to as chilling free speech. And if this administration can’t handle one cable station’s opposition, what does that tell the American people about its mettle on issues that matter?

OBITUARIES

Event to honor breast cancer survivors TIMES STAFF REPORT

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and to mark the occasion the NC Triad Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure is celebrating its 10th year anniversary by honoring breast cancer survivors from its 10-county service area today. Davidson County survivors, co-survivors and community friends are invited to the Open House and Survivor Celebration from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the N.C.

Guests will enjoy refreshments, view the new Komen merchandise, enter to win prizes, register for survivor-only drawings, sign up to tell your story with the StoryLine bus â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and even register for the 2010 Race for the Cure. For the past 10 years, the NC Triad Affiliate has provided breast-cancer education and support, along with its investment of more than $3.1 million in grants for community breast-health programs in the 10-county service area that includes Alamance, Davidson, Davie, Forsyth, Guilford, Randolph, Stokes, Surry, Wilkes and Yadkin counties. Throughout those years, almost $230,000 has been granted to Davidson County organizations including Cancer Services, the Health Department, and Thomasville Medical Center. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The current economic environment has had a significant impact on the demand for services throughout our service area,â&#x20AC;? said Anna Eichhorn, executive director, North Carolina Triad Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Komen funding is being used at a record pace to serve women at all stages of breast cancer.

Community Grants of up to $65,000 will be awarded and priority will be given to programs providing services not otherwise available to the medically-underserved populations of the NC Triad Affiliate and those who have not before been served by a Komen Grant. Up to 75 percent of all funds generated by the Komen North Carolina Triad Affiliate stay in the 10 county affiliate area. The remaining income goes to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Research Grants Program to fund national research necessary to find the cures. For more information on the survivor celebration please call 336-7210037 or log onto www. komennctriad.org.

CALENDAR TODAY SOCCER Lexington @ Thomasville 7 p.m. VOLLEYBALL DCCC @ Brunswick CC 5 p.m.

As Week 10 kicks off Friday night, it appears the Thomasville Bulldogs may finally be starting to find its groove as they have ripped through the first two Central Carolina Conference meetings this season. Coming into last week’s affair with East Davidson, it appeared the Bulldogs (4-4, 2-0) may face some stiff opposition with 1,000yard rusher Dylan Gallimore and the rest of the Golden Eagles. Instead, THS howled to a glaring 34-0 thumping of its crosstown rivals, stymying everything on defense and using a 150-plus rushing performance and two touchdowns by Kesean Green. “We were very much concerned with them but our defense played well and offensively we played better than we have been of late,” said Thomasville head coach Allen Brown. “We also seem to have made some progress with our running game.” Green has been on a hot streak, using good

Quin Riley has been nicked up and did contribute two touchdowns and 87 yards rushing for the game, but Green has emerged as the No. 1 back and is stepping up and wanting the ball. “He is learning and is finding some seams better and is giving great effort,” said Brown. “We are pleased with where he has come.” Both Green and Riley get some added help in the backfield with the arrival of High

Point Andrews transfer Justin Keitt. The newcomer contributed 66 yards on seven carries, but did have a fumble in his first game for the Bulldogs. In time, he should give THS a potent three-back attack to constantly pound the ball at opposing defenses. “He is a work in progress,” Brown said of Keitt. “He has some good quicks and tries really hard. We are just trying to adjust him and he is trying to adjust to us.” This week, Thomasville will travel to Tyro where West Davidson awaits. The Green Dragons (2-6, 0-2) have not had an easy time of it this season, but are still a capable opponent. Thomasville will be ready as they search for a fourth straight shutout dating back to the game at Asheboro Sept. 25. “West traditionally has been a tough matchup for us,” said Brown. “The things they try to do offensively and defensively mirror us. They try to be a good defensive team and try to run the ball first.”

The East Davidson Golden Eagles hope to bounce back from their loss to Thomasville, as they travel this Friday night to compete against the Spartans of Central Davidson. “We hope to play a little better than we did last Friday night; we did not play very good and to make matters worse we lost our starting inside linebacker after about the fifth play,” said East Davidson head coach Bryan Lingerfelt. The Eagles (4-4, 1-1) had to scramble around on defense, trying to fill the void of losing their second starting linebacker due to injury for the season. Junior Tyler Pedley damaged his knee and is awaiting the results of his MRI. Against the Spartans (3-6, 1-2), East will try to control the ball and win the possession battle, keeping Central’s offense on the sidelines as much as possible. “We neeed to chew up the clock on offense and control the chains,” said Lingerfelt. “Central is really strong on their defensive line, their lineback-

East loses to Green Dragons in finals BY ZACH KEPLEY Sports Editor Once again it was the West Davidson Green Dragons the last team standing Wednesday night in the Central Carolina Conference finals at East Davidson. The Golden Eagles had one a single set against the Green Dragons this season, but got none on this night as they fell 1825, 20-25, 15-25. East will host a home match this weekend as the No. 2 seed from conference while West will also host a first round game. “We came out enthusiastic, but West’s game is so fast,” said EDHS head coach Kim Warrick. “Our passing was not where it is supposed to be and we have got to learn to play

defense with our feet.” East reached the conference finals by dropping Central Davidson in four games Tuesday, but it was quite the struggle as the Golden Eagles had a Jekyl and Hyde type personality to them. It was play as bad as they possibly could at some moments, then play some incredible volleyball at other times. Central won the first set as East came out sluggish, but the Golden Eagles rebounded to sweep the next three games, winning 17-25, 25-10, 2522, 25-19. “We are an up and down team and I have tried hard to get us to be consistent from the start, but they are like

that,” said Warrick. “I do not know why they are like that, but they do recover from it most of the time.” “I was proud of them tonight, though. They scrapped, they played, and I thought our movement on defense was a lot better.” Tied at one game apiece, the third set became crucial in the match. C e n t r a l surged ahead grabbing the first five points, only to see it evaporate as East rallied back to tie it at 7-7. Strong serving by Stacy Hicks allowed them to reel off the next six points. The pressure continued to be applied by the Eagles, specifically Taylor Alexander.

The all-around specialist was a force above the net all game, hammering a pair of kills during one stretch and having four blocks that sent EDHS out to a 20-10 lead after her final kill from the back. “She can make the big plays,” Warrick said. “Sometimes her game may not look very pretty, but she always seems to put the ball where the open spot is. I need her to be consistent and she knows that. She has stepped into a role with more responsibility and some of that is hard on her. But she is coming around at the right time.” As effective as Alexander was for the Eagles, Jasmine Charles was

Heels to play struggling FSU tonight at Kenan BY BRIANA GORMAN Durham Herald Sun CHAPEL HILL — The North Carolina Tar Heels spent the past week catching their breath thanks to a break in its schedule, but now they turn their attention to the final six games on the schedule. The Tar Heels face a stretch of six consecutive ACC games, which kicks off with a nationally televised matchup against Florida State on Thursday (8 p.m., ESPN). It will be the first time UNC has hosted a Thursday night game and the first time the Seminoles have been in Chapel Hill since 2003. The Tar Heels said they’re excited to play under the lights and on the national stage, but they also know what a win over FSU could mean for their season. UNC is 4-2 overall but both losses were to ACC opponents. “A win would be very important because it would start the momentum we

need to finish this season strong,” UNC senior defensive lineman E.J. Wilson said. “I think if we beat Florida State it’ll be a statement win, in my opinion, because we’re proving that we can go out there and play with anybody.” This Florida State team may not be as dominating as the Seminoles were in the 1990’s — FSU is 2-4, 0-3 ACC this year — but they still are considered a historical powerhouse, Wilson said. UNC coach Butch Davis said FSU has a great program built by legendary coach Bobby Bowden, and the Seminoles’ reputation will only add to the excitement of the game. “Games like this, to a certain extent, become measuring sticks,” Davis said. “Are you making the progress that you’d hoped you’d be making?” Davis said he discussed bringing a Thursday night game to Chapel Hill after he was hired, and he thinks it’s a great way for the school, not just the football program, to get exposure. “You get basically a four-hour info-

ing to get a concealed handgun permit. The class is covered by Jason Livingston, N.C. certified firearms instructor and 16 years law enforcement experience. The class covers laws for citizens governing the use of deadly force to protect their homes, as well as deadly force laws in general as they pertain to citizens of N.C. Also, gun safety, marksmanship and fundamentals are covered and practiced during the class, with hands on range time. To sign up for the class call Livingston at 687-0290 or go by the fire department.

mercial that you get a chance to talk about Chapel Hill, talk about the University of North Carolina,” Davis said. “It was an unbelievable cooperation by a lot of people to help make this happen, and we’re very grateful they allowed us to do it.” Davis admitted the Thursday night game can interrupt the players and their class schedules, but UNC doesn’t have class this Thursday or Friday because of fall break. The weeknight game also pushes the practice schedule back two days, so Monday’s practice is like a normal-week Wednesday workout. “We’re on our so-called Wednesday day, so it’s a little bit different because you get sidetracked, like today’s only Monday and I’m thinking that today’s really Wednesday,” junior cornerback Kendric Burney said. “It plays with you a little bit, but you know just because the game’s on a Thursday night, you’re just so jacked up that you’re not even worried about what day it is.” Burney said he loves night games and

EAST From page 7 equally effective for the Spartans. Stuck in a rotation that allowed her to be up front for several points, she blocked shots and found holes for kills as the game became knotted at 22-22. Warrick called for time and the strategy paid off, as Candace Fox yelled as she drove home a kill to regain control. That rotated Charles to the back where she was ineffective the remainder of the set. Fox would get an ace to finish the set and give East a 2-1 lead. “She [Charles] is a very good player and

has been antsy to play for the past week. UNC has had success on Thursday night and is 4-2 in those games, including a 44-12 victory over Rutgers a year ago. Burney said the Seminoles’ record and recent woes don’t matter much to the Tar Heels, they just want to win and get some momentum back. “This is definitely a game that could flip our season totally around to get back on the right track to contend and get back in any kind of races that we want to get in to,” Burney said.

Notes: Freshman tailback/quarterback A.J. Blue and redshirt freshman Jamal Womble will miss the rest of the season after undergoing surgery at UNC Hospitals on Friday. Blue had the anterior cruciate ligament and posterior cruciate ligament reconstructed and his medial collateral ligament repaired on his left knee. Blue also will not participate in the 2010 spring practices. Womble’s surgery was to repair his fractured right wrist.

was Alexander playing a pivotal role once more. Down 16-13, Alexander sent home four kills in a row to put East up by one. The game was tied for the final time of the night at 18-18, but Alexander the lead back for East for good. She blocked a Central shot and followed up with a kill, pushing East ahead by two. Two great tip plays by Caroline Fowler brought up match point, and appropriately enough, Alexander drove home the winning point placing a kill in the back right corner. Alexander finished with 18 kills and Fox had 15. Hicks served up 22 points as she and Fowler combined for 40 assists.

The lineage of the No. 42 NASCARMEDIA.COM DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — The No. 42 might illustrate NASCAR’s evolution better than any other number ever could. It was there at the beginning, when that first Strictly Stock schedule contained eight races at eight tracks, the farthest west of which was in Pittsburgh. The driver then was Lee Petty from North Carolina, a state that has produced 342 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers. And the No. 42 is still here now, competing and excelling in a schedule filled with 36 races at 22 tracks, the farthest west of which is in California. The driver of the current edition of the No. 42 is Juan Pablo Montoya, from Bogota, Colombia, a country that has produced exactly one NASCAR Sprint Cup driver.

Juan Montoya The No. 42, in other words, has seen it all. It’s seen 1,213 NASCAR Sprint Cup races. It’s seen the inside of Victory Lane at 68 of them. And it’s seen three championships, all by Lee Petty – the first driver ever to win three titles. Petty would nab 53 of his 54 wins in the No. 42 (the other came in the No. 43 his son Richard made famous), setting a precedent for a rather successful 60-plus year run for the No. 42. Since Petty vacated the ride for

good in 1961, a list of prominent drivers have stepped in: Richard Petty, Jim Paschal, Marvin Panch, Tiny Lund, Kyle Petty and, now, Montoya – who has taken the No. 42 to its first Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup. Richard Petty captured two of his 200 wins while driving the No. 42 at Starkey Speedway in 1962 and Augusta (GA) Speedway in 1965. Other winners in the No. 42 include Kyle Petty (six), Paschal (four), Panch, Joe Nemechek and Montoya (one apiece). Montoya captured the No. 42’s last win, as a rookie at Infineon Raceway in 2007. He hopes to add another one in the No. 42 this Sunday at Martinsville Speedway, a track that has also been there from the very beginning. Seems like the perfect spot.

SURGING From page 7 It appears the league may be decided when Salisbury visits Cushwa Stadium next week, but a trap game such as Friday night is one that can cost a team a conference championship — especially considering the size of the league. “The conference as I have mentioned before is way too small,” Brown said. “Because of that, each game has huge importance and there is no margin for error.”

REBOUND From page 7 ers look good, and their corners are pretty steady, so it is going to be a tough test for us, especially on the road.” The Eagles will rely heavily on their stout offensive linemen, the play of Taylor Warren at quarterback and their 1,000-yard running back Dylan Gallimore, if they are going to pick up the victory. Ledford @ Asheboro Ledford looks for its second conference victory of the season as the Panthers will travel to Asheboro on Friday night to battle a talented and dangerous squad of Blue Comets. Despite their poor record, Asheboro (2-6, 0-2) has played in extremely close games with the exception of their 21-0 loss to Thomasville three weeks ago. “I think they are a better football team than their record indicates,” said Ledford head coach Chuck Henderson. “They are big up front on both sides of the ball, they have got good team speed, and their running back Dmitri Faigler is a special player, so we have definitely got our hands full. The Panthers (4-4, 1-1) expect Steven Fuquay to handle the pressure defense of the Comets and maintain a balanced attack through the air and on the ground for their offense.

major dangers are not from witches and spirits, but rather from falls and crashes.” Parents should insist any candy or treats be brought home for inspection before anything is eaten. One way to keep a child from sneaking any uninspected treats is by making an early dinner before embarking to the streets. Any fruit needs to washed thoroughly and cut into small pieces. Homeowners are advised to keep candles and jacko-lanterns away from landings and doorsteps where costumes could brush against a flame and away from curtains or other decorations. And never leave a house unattended. There also is numerous activities around the area where families can enjoy the evening. A trunkor-treat is taking place at the Davidson County Governmental Center in Lexington from 12 p.m. - 4 p.m., Boones Cave Park is sponsoring Halloween activities from 3-7 p.m., the Fairgrounds are doing likewise from 5-9 p.m., and downtown Denton is holding store-to-store trick-or-treating from 5:30 - 7 p.m. “There’s pretty much something for everybody in every corner of the county,” Grice said. As far as the people who aren’t just out for a good time, Grice said there will be plenty of deputies out and about to keep the peace. Anyone caught doing any property damage or driving under the influence will be charged, Grice said.

Traffic stop leads to drug bust TIMES STAFF REPORT

A traffic stop led to the arrest of a Denton woman for possessing an assortment of illegal drugs. Davidson County detectives conducted a traffic stop on I-85 South near Lake Road on Tuesday because a vehicle was following too close to another and failed to signal a lane change. As a result of the stop, detectives seized 119 methadone pills, 19 Xanax pills, 16 Adderall tablets, two oxycotin tablets and two hydrocodone pills from Mary Ann Foster, 26, of 323 Nance Road in Denton. Foster was arrested and charged with three counts of trafficking opium, one count of possession with intent to sell each for four different pills, one count of maintaining a vehicle to keep a controlled substance and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia. Foster was placed in Davidson County Jail and issued a $20,000 secured bond. She is scheduled to appear in court on Nov. 24.

her with donations for the fabric. In return, I asked her if she could come to our school and bring her bear program to our children. It worked out so beautifully. We not only helped her but we were recipients of the program.” Once the program ends, students take their bears to the classroom and teachers choose how to implement it into the curriculum. Gaylord said

she looks forward to all the different ideas teachers come up with and how the children respond to the program. “It’s amazing,” Gaylord said. “Each teacher will decide what activities to do and some have been very creative with the bears, so I’m excited to see what they do.”

Mysterious Disappearances

Vanishing Animals There is a big mystery in the world. Animals are disappearing, and no one knows exactly why. Bees, bats, frogs and other amphibians are vanishing. There are a lot of ideas about this. Experts believe the disappearances and deaths are happening for a mixture of reasons. If so many animals are in trouble, it may mean the Earth is in trouble too. The Mini Page talked to scientists to discover more about these mysteries.

Varroa mite

A perfect storm

A Varroa mite, or tiny spider-like creature, rests on the back of a honeybee. Experts believe this mite may be one of the causes of bee disappearances. Many other dangers, such as pesticides, global warming, many viruses hitting at once, and modern beekeeping practices may be adding to the problem.

The case of the vanishing honeybees

Experts believe there may be many causes joining together to kill off certain animals. Some experts are calling this mixture of dangers a â&#x20AC;&#x153;perfect storm.â&#x20AC;? The dangers all come together to make the situation even worse. For example, climate change may put so much stress on an animal that it gets sick easier. Pollution and pesticides may be weakening animalsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; immune systems. The immune system helps the body fight off sickness.

Then, all of a sudden, all the Although Colony Collapse Disorder is worker bees would vanish, deserting honeybee health has been getting their hive, the queen, honey stores and new, worse for about 30 years.

Then she started cracking forehands and backhands in the U.S. Open tennis tournament. Pretty soon it was her shot-making and tenacity that created excitement and made believers out of tennis fans around the nation. Suddenly, Oudin was the talk of the tournament. She upset three highly ranked opponents and became the youngest player to reach the quarterfinals in at least a DECADE(ERFAIRYTALERIDEENDEDWITHALOSSTO YEAR OLD#AROLINE7OZNIACKI Like most teen tennis phenoms, Oudin â&#x20AC;&#x201D; who has two sisters â&#x20AC;&#x201D; started playing at an early age.

Environmental Dangers Dangers to humans

Harmful chemicals

Experts say honeybees help us grow about one-third of our food. We cannot grow many crops without them, including nuts, berries, fruits and many vegetables, such as cucumbers, pumpkins and broccoli. For example, some crops, such as almonds, depend on honeybees to pollinate almond flowers. In California, almond growers need 1.3 million colonies of bees. This is about half of all the honeybees in the United States. When bees, bats, birds and other creatures pollinate (POH-luh-nate) plants, they carry a fine dust called pollen from one plant to another. This allows the plants to reproduce. Some experts say bees are so important to our food that Colony Collapse Disorder might be one of the biggest threats to national security.

Pesticides and other harmful chemicals could be a major cause of animal deaths. There is evidence that poisonous chemicals are staying in soil and plants longer. Even when people switch to less harmful pesticides and other farm and garden chemicals, the most harmful ones may still be in the environment.

Healthy bees crowd onto a honeycomb.

Overworked bees Experts believe overworking bees may be one of the causes for CCD. Beekeepers move colonies of bees around the country so bees can pollinate different crops. Experts believe this may be wearing out bees.

Water dangers Farm chemicals run off the land into streams and rivers. These chemicals are especially dangerous to animals such as frogs and fish that spend much of their lives in water. Farmers and gardeners apply pesticides in the spring. But spring rains wash these dangerous chemicals into ponds and streams. Baby frogs are being born right when these poisons are washed into the water. from The Mini Page Š 2009 Universal Press Syndicate

Disappearing Frogs and Bats One of the worst threats to frogs is a deadly fungus called chytrid (kit-rid). A fungus is a type of growth such as mold. This is a redlegged Kassini frog.

Frogs disappearing from Earth

Pollution, pesticides, global warming, loss of habitat and drought are some possible dangers to frogs such as this mountain yellow-legged frog. The Mini Page thanks Dr. Jennifer Sass, Natural Resources Defense Council senior scientist, for help with this issue.

In the past few years, bats have been dying around the world. Although experts are not sure why, they believe there may be several causes. A strange new disease called White Nose Syndrome has killed hundreds of thousands of bats. Experts believe this disease could be caused by pesticides, bacteria or a virus. Bats eat tons of harmful insects such as mosquitoes and other bugs that harm crops. Bats with White Nose Syndrome have a white circle of fungus around their noses.

Amphibians have been on Earth for about 360 million years. There have been amphibian extinctions before. But it has never been as bad as it is now. The rapid extinctions could signal the start of an environmental danger to humans as well. In addition, amphibians eat a lot of harmful insects. If too many amphibians disappear, people could be in more danger from insects carrying disease or eating crops. Add`i]gdj\]ndjgcZlheVeZg[dghidg^Zh VWdjicVijgZ#

Entire species, or types, of frogs have been disappearing from our planet in the last 20 years. Some species are already gone. Experts believe about half of all frogs on the planet face extinction. Frogs are members of the amphibian (am-FIB-ee-uhn) family. Amphibians live part of their lives in water and part on land. Other amphibians, such as salamanders and toads, are also at risk. Another problem is that more frogs and fish are being born unhealthy. Some have deformed legs or extra legs. Some frogs and fish are being born with male and female reproductive parts. Experts believe pesticides are part of the problem. Peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s medicines getting into water sources may be a problem too.

All the following jokes have something in common. Can you guess the common theme or category?

Musser said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now, kids actually can sit down and enjoy their meal just a little bit, and we can sit down and enjoy ours.â&#x20AC;?
