Former Ledford teacher faces more charges BY ELIOT DUKE Staff Writer
Additional charges have been filed against a former Ledford High School teacher who is accused of having sexual relationships with his students. Scott Edwin Ring, 42, of 936 South Ridge Court in Winston-Salem, is facing three more charges
of felony sex offense with a student after another former student came forward and alleged that the two engaged in sexual acts over a two-year period dating back to 2006. “We had a new victim come forward and [Ring] was indicted on a new charge,” Davidson County District Attorney Garry Frank said. “A true bill [of indictment] was sent
‘We had a new victim come forward and [Ring] was indicted on a new charge.’ — Garry Frank Davidson County District Attorney to the grand jury and returned [Tuesday].” A Davidson County grand jury returned two true bills of indictment filed on Sept. 27, 2010,
against Ring, alleging he “unlawfully, willfully and feloniously did engage in a sexual act” with a male student starting on Nov. 1, 2006. According to the
true bills of indictment obtained from the Davidson Clerk of Courts Office, Ring allegedly engaged in a sexual act with the male student between Nov. 1 and Nov. 30, 2006, and also between Nov. 1 and Dec. 31, 2007, while the defendant was a teacher at Ledford High School and the victim was a student “at this same school.”
Ring originally was arrested by the State Bureau of Investigation on Feb. 12 and charged with felony taking indecent liberties with a child and felony sex offense with a student. According to an arrest warrant, these offenses allegedly occurred between Aug. 1 and Sept. 30, 2008 with “a known

Lease brings medical helicopter to county
Man enters plea deal in insurance fraud case
BY ERIN WILTGEN
BY ELIOT DUKE
LEXINGTON — Davidson County residents can now rest a little easier. The Board of Commissioners approved a lease agreement that will fly a Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center Air helicopter out of Davidson County Airport. Air Methods Corp., based in Colorado, signed with the county for a fiveyear lease — which begins Nov. 1 and runs until Oct. 31, 2015 — to use the hangar for around-theclock crew offices and the storage of a contracted $4.5 million Wake Forest chopper. In addition to faster response time for medical emergency services, the county will receive $2,175 in monthly rent from Air Methods as well as property tax dollars on the helicopter and gas sales.
A Thomasville business man accused of collecting insurance premiums from employees and then not providing any health coverage reached a plea deal on Monday that will keep him out of jail — at a steep price. Darrell Haire, owner of A.M. Haire Truck Bodies Inc. on Pineywood Road, plead guilty to four counts of misdemeanor common law uttering and received a 180-day suspended sentence for his role in collecting more than $200,000 worth of insurance premiums from dozens of employees and failing to provide the insurance. The Department of Insurance initiated the investigation. As part of his plea deal, Haire also will have to pay $213,639.45 in restitution and he will be on

HARVESTING FUN Thomasville Police Lt. Raymond Widener fills ‘Care Bear’ Jimena Centeno’s trick-or-treat bag with items Thursday during Communities In Schools annual Harvest Festival held at Central Recreation Center. The festival, which was originally organized by the late Conrad Kinton, gives parents and their children a safe alternative to trick-or-treating on Halloween night.

KING AND QUEEN Kelsey Long and Malcolm Wimmer were named Homecoming Queen and King Friday night at East Davidson’s football game.
Ghouls, goblins and witches will soon flood the streets, flanked by Harry Potters and a variety of fairy princesses. With these little munchkins running amuck, treat bags clutched tightly, local law enforcement seeks to prevent the trick and ensure the treat. “Halloween should be filled with surprise and enjoyment, and following some common sense practices can keep events safer and more fun,” said Davidson County Sheriff David Grice. The City of Thomasville will celebrate Halloween on the actual holiday, letting Trick-or-Treaters roam on Sunday, Oct. 31. Exact times will be left up to the neighborhoods. Thomasville Police officers will be out and about to make sure all goes smoothly and keep high visibility. “Our role will be to aggressively be out and patrolling the residential ar-
eas to be seen by the children and parents alike,” said Major James Mills, TPD. “We’re hoping that all of the Trick-or-Treating will be over around 9 p.m. or so. Partying is a big thing, we expect some Halloween parties, but we’re prepared for that, too.” Overall, Mills says the department doesn’t anticipate any major trouble. “You have malicious mischief that occurs any time that you have Halloween,” he said. “You have people who get out and they celebrate in ways that are not considered the norm. But I don’t think we’re expecting any big problems.” There are minor risks, of course. Mills stresses the need for drivers to watch for children — especially young children — running out from between parked cars or meandering in the middle of the road. When entering or exiting a driveway or alley, drivers

should watch carefully and be mindful of children in dark costumes. “We’re asking people to be extra careful in driving, especially after dark that evening with the small kids out,” Mills said. “We’re asking that the real small Trick-orTreaters be extremely careful and be supervised by parents.” Other safety tips from the Sheriff ’s office include planning a Trick-or-Treating route through familiar territory and checking the sex offender registry at www.ncdoj.gov for any dangers along that route. Instruct children to only stop at homes that are well-lit and never to enter a stranger’s home. Supervise young children and make sure older children go out in groups, and know the names of your children’s friends. Establish a return time and remind kids not to eat any treats until they get back home. Drill home and emergency phone numbers before leaving the house, and pin a slip of paper with the child’s name, address and phone number inside a pocket in case a youngster gets separated. One way to avoid the hazards of Halloween is eliminating Trick-orTreating all together. Of course, this doesn’t mean keeping kids home under lock and key. “We’re asking people to consider taking children to the various local churches and locations where they’re doing the Trunk-and-Treats,” Mills said. “That way the kids will be a little safer. They won’t be out in the streets and crossing streets.” Whatever method of festivity, Grice emphasizes that simple precautions go a long way to keep the night free of injury and accidents. “Halloween is a fun time in Davidson County,” Grice said. “Let’s make it a safe time as well. The major dangers are not from witches or spirits but rather from falls and pedestrian or car crashes.”

From page A1 supervised probation for five years. Haire paid $50,000 upfront to the Davidson County Clerk of Courts Office on Tuesday, and the money will be dispersed to each employee who was affected. “Each person will get their proportional share or whatever percentage of the $213,000 that they are owed,” Davidson County District Attorney Garry Frank said. “They’ll also get their percentage of the $50,000.” Haire was charged with 47 counts of obtaining property by false pretenses, a Class H felony with a maximum sentence of
30 months for each count, but Frank said the plea deal enables the victims to retrieve some, if not all, of their losses. Haire and his company failed to provide insurance between Nov. 1, 2008 and Jan. 31, 2009. Employees also were not made aware that the company stopped providing insurance. “If he goes to jail, they get nothing,” said Frank. “The objective was to come up with some way to make it to where he could make the people whole who were wronged on this thing. He has to be able to have some sort of ongoing business to do that. Under the circumstances, this is the best plea we could work out to have a reasonable ability to have this con-
summated. If we go in and do something, even if we have an astronomical figure, and he can’t make it, there’s not much that happens to help the people thereafter. By having this significant of a down payment and the way we’ve got this structured, there’s a reasonable chance he can get them paid back.” According to Joe Black with the Davidson County Clerk of Courts Office, Haire will be allowed to work out of state after first reporting to his probation officer. Haire’s company ceased operations on June 19.

Hugh Holliman hitting Rayne Brown with misleading and false attacks on tax pledge WASHINGTON, DC – Incumbent Democrat Hugh Holliman has hit Rayne Brown, his Republican opponent for North Carolina House District 81, with multiple attack ads in an attempt to mislead voters about the actual meaning of the Taxpayer Protection Pledge, which Brown has signed. In at least two commercials and one mailer, Holliman argues that Brown’s Pledge means she supports tax breaks for companies that outsource jobs. In reality, the goal of the Pledge is to protect North Carolina tax payers and businesses from tax increase, and does not prevent revenue-neutral elimination of tax credits.
CHARGES From page A1
The “No New Taxes” Pledge simply commits a signer to “oppose and vote against any and all efforts to raise taxes.” By making this promise, Rayne Brown has taken tax hikes off the table for all taxpayers in North Carolina – something Hugh Holliman has not done.
Ledford High School student.” Ring was a science teacher at LHS for 12 years. Davidson County Clerk of Court Brian Shipwash said that Ring will probably face all the charges at one time. “If they hold true to tradition, the charges will be married together,” said Shipwash. “Most of the time, there’s a tradition, as far as for judicial economy, for all of these court dates for these charges to be at the same time. The district attorney has a challenging task in that each case has to be proven individually on its own merit so it’s not creating hardships on either the case file defendant or the defendant’s attorney. Whatever happens with one, as far as continuances and things of that nature, normally happens with the other.” Ring’s next scheduled court date was not available as of press time Wednesday night.
False attacks on the tax pledge are part of a desperate national Democrat narrative and began earlier this year, when the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee ran ad in Hawaii’s 1st Congressional District making the same outsourcing attacks on Charles Djou that Holliman is leveling at Brown. Nonpartisan FactCheck.org declared these attacks “blatantly false.” FactChecking.org recently ran another analysis concluding that attacks on the Pledge for state candidates “make even less sense.” “It’s clearly desperation time for Hugh Holliman and national Democrats. These patently false attacks about Rayne Brown’s tax pledge don’t even pass the laugh test,” said ATR President Grover Norquist. “The truth is that voters are tired of tax-hiking Beverly Perdue puppets like Hugh Holliman representing them in the North Carolina General Assembly.” “Families across North Carolina have been cutting back to cope with the economic downturn. Yet politicians like Hugh Holliman have continued to increase spending unsustainably in Raleigh. Just last year Holliman voted for more than $1 billion in higher taxes on all North Carolinians so that the state would not have to go to the trouble of living within its means. Rayne Brown has promised a needed break with liberal Hugh Holliman and has committed to opposing further job-killing tax increases,” continued Norquist. “It’s telling that Holliman has resorted to knowingly misleading his constituents. Brown has committed to restoring ﬁscal sanity in the State House. Holliman has proven himself to be nothing more than a lying tax hiker.”

Preparing for a recital MUSICALLY SPEAKING
JOSEF WALKER Guest Columnist
In preparing for an upcoming recital on Nov. 14, I started thinking about all the earlier aspects of my life that have brought me to this point. There have been concerts in the past, and hopefully may be more in the future, but this one is of singular importance. The Nov. 14 recital will celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the Ordination of The Rev. Dr. Richard A. Cheek, beloved Pastor Emeritus of Heidelberg Church. I am grateful to so many people who have guided me and pointed me in the right direction for fulfilling Godâ€™s plan for my life. I am grateful to my mother, the late Etta Maie English Walker. My father died when I was 18 months old, leaving my mother with three children to rear on her own; my brother Horace Porter Walker Jr., my sister, Martha Jane WalkerCreed, and me. She provided piano lessons for both my sister and me. My sister was the brilliant one in the family and excelled in everything else except music. When she got her drivers license, she volunteered to take me to my piano lessons. Now this is really funny because she is hardly five feet tall now. You can imagine her in our family car (with the big tail fins) sitting on a telephone book and a throw pillow from the sofa in the den, driving me for lessons. On our first trip, she could hardly see over the hood and scrapped the side of my teacherâ€™s porch with the bumper of the car (she said the porch was too close to the driveway anyway). M.J., I promise, I never did tell mother about the small

scratch on the bumper. I am grateful to my mentor, the late H. Grady Miller, founder of the Winston-Salem Symphony, who helped prepare me for my audition to the School of the Arts. He later helped me land my first job as Organist of First United Methodist Church in High Point where he was Minister of Music. I was 17. Iâ€™m grateful to Margaret Vardell Sandresky to whom I owe everything that is good about my playing: style, technique and all. It was she who encouraged me to develop the talent I have for Improvisation. I remember the late Mildred Hendricks, Chapel Organist of Duke University, who invited Mrs. Sandresky to bring her gaggle of aspiring organists to Duke Chapel for master classes with the great Pierre Cochereau, Organist of the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. None of us got to play an entire work but he listened politely to a little over a page of my playing one of Bachâ€™s little preludes and fugues. He smiled and said: â€œAh, TrĂ¨s bien, aprĂ¨s!â€? I was thrilled and turned to Mrs. Sandresky and asked, â€œWhat did he say?â€? She responded, â€œHe said you played very well.â€? I continued â€œâ€Ś but what else did he say?â€? Mike Surratt and Tony Center, who knew far more French than I did, leaned over and said: â€œJosef, he said, â€˜thatâ€™s good â€Ś next.â€™â€? I was a little less proud of
my playing after that. I am grateful that during my childhood, college, U.S. Army (where I served as a Chaplainâ€™s Assistant and Post Chapel Organist) and adult life, church was and is an important part of my life. As a child, there was no question as to whether I wanted to go to church or not; if I was alive and well I would be in church. Having heard the scriptures from an early age prepared me to select hymns, anthems, and sacred music which illuminate the spoken word in the worship service. Although I have done some concert work, the majority of my career has been spent attempting to uphold and maintain the standards of organ and choral music in the church. In my earlier years, I memorized all of the music for my recitals. As I have gotten older and canâ€™t remember where I left my cell phone, let alone a 30- to 40-minute program of music, I play from the printed score. Itâ€™s always better to have it and not need it, than the other way around. Iâ€™m grateful to my friend and colleague, Eddie Huss, Minister of Music and the Arts, of First Presbyterian Church in Charlotte for his assistance in helping me select new repertoire to be used in the November program. I am grateful to Heidelberg Church for their care and preservation of the Palmer Memorial Organ given by the fam-
ily of Dr. J. A. Palmer, to the church in 1955. This organ was only the second pipe organ installed by the Schantz Pipe Organ Company in the state of North Carolina. Its low console provides good visibility for playing and conducting. It has a warm 19th century English organ sound. The organ chambers, above the chancel choir loft, speak well into the nave of the church, and the sound is further enhanced by the vaulted ceiling of the sanctuary. The church, founded in 1894, provides excellent acoustical properties for concert sound, be it vocal or instrumental. Artists from our â€œGreat Music of Heidelbergâ€? series often comment on how musically â€œliveâ€? the room is. The upcoming recital is Nov. 14 at 4 p.m. and you are most welcome to attend. I hope to see you then, if not just remember to keep a song in your heart.

To the Editor
Hugh Holliman voted to spend money on a $25 million pier when teachers and educational staff were being laid off. His tax-and-spend polices have lost thousands of jobs in Davidson County. We have a 30 percent dropout rate in our schools in the state of North Carolina. Even though the N.C. Senate overwhelmingly passed the Castle Doctrine, a bill that would allow people to protect themselves in their homes, he killed it and would not let the N.C. House vote on the bill. Another tidbit of information on Mr. Holliman, he doesn’t even live full-time in Davidson County. He said he was going to run on his record but all he does is level false accusations against his opponent Rayne Brown. The media is quick to come to Mr. Holliman’s defense when they feel an ad or a flier are less than truthful even when the flyer states facts in evidence and is factually correct, but do not feel the same is needed for the falsehoods propagated by Holliman’s camp. A case-in-point would be the ad Mr. Holliman is running, and has probably spent $100,000 on, accusing Rayne Brown of signing a pledge that could export jobs to China using www.ATR.com as his reference. That is a ridiculous claim. If you go to the website, read the pledge, Rayne Brown pledged to not raise taxes and to try to create an environment that would encourage businesses to locate here and create the much-needed jobs Holliman has run off with his tax policies. Go read it yourself, don’t be fooled by the same old lies coming out of Holliman’s campaign. The ATR(Americans for Tax Relief) put out a press release to show what the pledge contained, let’s see if any media outlets publish the facts. Factcheck.org has shown his add to be false. The NRA endorsement Holliman received is a joke, as is the endorsement of the N.C. Chamber of Commerce. In conclusion, you can believe what Holliman is telling you or you can look around and see the misery, disarray and corruption that exists in this state directly related to policies Holliman has supported. Please don’t be led astray by false claims. If Hugh Holliman goes back to Raleigh you will see the largest tax increase in our state’s history. Vote to make a difference this year, vote Rayne Brown for N.C. House. Hold Holliman accountable for his record. Chuck Fortune Lexington
We are being asked to amend the Constitution of North Carolina. Again. I fear that most people are going to vote for the proposed constitutional amendment because they think that they are voting to prevent a specific convicted felon from serving as sheriff. What they actually will be doing is voting to deprive themselves forever of the power to make that choice. The amendment will make the constitution of our state handmaiden to the laws of all the other states. A North Carolinian who committed an offense in some far-off place, and has long since paid the penalty, will face that crime anew, and be punished for it for the rest of his life, by disqualification from his county’s highest office. And it won’t matter if the statute that convicted that North Carolinian in that far-off place has long since been repealed, or maybe even been held unconstitutional. There will be no exceptions for exonerations or convictions set aside. So Darryl Hunt will never be able to run for sheriff of Forsyth County. And the dozens of men who will eventually be freed by the investigation of the SBI crime lab — men who possess painfully learned special insights into the flaws of our criminal justice system — all of those men will be barred forever from serving as sheriff of any county in the state. The last time our constitution was amended, it was to strip the voters of their power to veto an exotic new form of government debt. The result was the Randy Parton Theater. We need not burden our constitution with another dubious provision. We already have a proven method for preventing a convicted felon from serving as sheriff. It’s called an election. In the primary last spring, in each of six counties, a convicted felon sought nomination to the office of sheriff. A total of 26,649 voters in those six counties marked a ballot in favor of one of the nonfelon candidates for sheriff. I was one of those 26,649 voters. In each of the six counties, the felon was defeated. In no county was the outcome even close. Seldom has there been a more resounding vindication of the vox populi, the voice of the people. But instead of renewed reverence for the ballot box, we have this proposal to further stifle that voice. The amendment should meet the fate that befell the six felons. Barney W. Hill Thomasville
Obama’s false alarm VIEWPOINT
STEVE CHAPMAN Syndicated Columnist At a campaign rally the other day, President Barack Obama decried those who say “you can’t overcome the cynicism of politics; no, you can’t overcome the special interests; no, you can’t overcome the big money; no, you can’t overcome the negative ads.” The president emphatically disagrees. But here’s the odd thing: The only people you hear taking that view are in the White House. It’s been their lament since the Supreme Court ruled in January that corporations have a constitutional right to spend money communicating their views about candidates running for office. “I can’t think of anything more devastating to the public interest,” Obama declared. All this spending, said presidential adviser David Axelrod, “is a threat to our democracy.” Lately, they are particularly alarmed that foreign money may be going to conservative groups that run anti-Democratic ads. Axelrod thinks it is vital for the names of such donors to be disclosed. CBS’ Bob Schieffer asked, “Do you have any evidence that it’s anything other than peanuts?” Axelrod replied, in a heroic display of chutzpah, “Well, do you have any evidence that it’s not, Bob?” Guilty until proven innocent: a new concept. But the president is right in believing that if people reject the agenda of the cor-
porations that are spending money in this election, they can vote against it — and win. Americans are about as likely to vote for every candidate a corporation favors as they are to buy every product a corporation advertises. It’s not as though Mammoth Amalgamated Corp. or China World Takeover Inc. is going out and paying citizens to cast Republican ballots. It’s not even as though corporations, foreign or domestic, are trying to buy off politicians with direct campaign contributions — which remain illegal. All they can do is finance broadcast spots or newspaper ads with messages intended to sway voters. As more than half of all political candidates discover every election year, such efforts often fail. Unless the ads make a case that is persuasive and believable to a majority of voters, they are wasted. Most corporate executives seem to understand as much and choose not to bother. When the Supreme Court decision came down, critics predicted a tidal wave of corporate spending on elections. What they overlooked is that in about half the states, such outlays were already allowed, without that dire consequence. All the evidence indicates that corporate electioneering makes no difference in election outcomes or legislation. John Coleman, a political science professor at the University of Wisconsin at Madison, examined the period 2000-2008 and found that states permitting such spending were no more likely to have Republican legislatures, businessfriendly regulatory policies or low business costs. What can we conclude from this experience? Either businesses don’t spend enough money to get their way or haven’t found ways to sell their message. In any case, it’s hard to see
how their spending can be “devastating to the public interest” when its effects are all but undetectable. The main reason for its futility is that there are lots of voices out there trying to influence how Americans vote. This year, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, outside groups (not counting party committees) have spent about $225 million on electioneering — which comes to a grand total of $1 for every American of voting age. That sum is less than all the contenders have laid out in a single race — for governor of California. In 2008, candidates for the U.S. Senate and House raised a total of $1.4 billion, and that number will undoubtedly be higher this year. In addition, there are countless TV commentators, editorial writers, radio talk-show hosts and bloggers weighing in on these races. In the end, though, none of them gets to decide the winners. It’s the voters who hold the ultimate power. That’s why comprehensive disclosure of who’s contributing to independent groups is less than crucial. The lack of such information doesn’t keep voters from evaluating each ad in light of the other information they have on the subject. If you hear someone on the radio say that 2 + 2 = 5, you don’t need to know who bought the spot to decide whether to believe it. The administration thinks that Americans cannot possibly sort out truth and error in a wide-open clash of ideas. But all the evidence confirms: Yes, we can.

LEASE From page A1
Air Methods’ 14 employees also will bring a tax base to the area. “We’re excited,” said Assistant County Manager Zeb Hanner. “It’ll be a good thing for the people in the county.” Davidson County bought the hangar from SSG, an Archdale-based marketing company, for $160,000. That 10,000-square-foot hangar is listed with a tax value of $425,000 and has a 1,700-square-foot office attached. That extra office space played a key role in the purchase. Wake Forest had talked to the county over the summer about leasing a corporate hangar, which didn’t have offices. The extra space is necessary to house crew. About the same time, SSG approached the county saying it had an unused hangar with office space. “It was a lot of good coincidences that all came together at the same time,” Hanner said. “It’s just wild the way the timing worked out.” Hanner says flights should begin in the middle of November and will service Davidson, Rowan and Randolph counties. The county still must install a shower and washer and dryer hook-up in the hangar for use by staff working in 12-hour shifts. The board also voted unanimously to convert Davidson Medical Ministries Clinic into a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) with a free clinic. A small committee arrived at the idea when pondering how to expand care to the county’s 18-21 percent of medically uninsured between ages 18 and 64. The advantage of an FQHC, which is designed specifically to serve medically needy, is the receipt of $650,000 in federal funding annually. “I’m really happy,” Walser said. “How we care for and treat the poor and the downtrodden says a lot about our value system as a community. Standing up tonight and doing this with two hospitals and all the other agencies involved is a giant step forward.” Both Thomasville Medical Center and Lexington Memorial Hospital pledged money toward the $100,000 needed to apply to be an FQHC. The United Way will contribute $50,000 and the county Board of Health declared $30,000. The $100,000 number came as a stipulation of a partnership with Gaston Family Health Services, which the county thinks will increase its chances in the application process. “We have a highly competitive grant process,” said Health Director Layton Long. “But we feel like we have a very strong application.” However the county won’t hear the application results until August 2011. Sandy Motley, executive director of Davidson Medical Ministries, says that since about 1,300 groups applied, the date was pushed back. In other news, the board also: Approved a lead remediation project to clean up soil on land that used to house a firing range for the Davidson County Sheriff ’s office. The board awarded the bid to Marcor Environmental at $53,766. Though Marcor didn’t offer the cheapest quote, County Purchasing Director Dwayne Childress said the company used the best methods and included some techniques that the other company, MT2 DJ McNeil Cleaning, did not. MT2 offered a cost of $25,900.

Are You Superstitious? A superstition (soo-per-STISH-un) is an age-old belief that something good or bad might happen if we say or do a certain thing. Have you ever heard kids say, â€œStep on a crack, break your motherâ€™s backâ€?? This is an example of a superstition. Superstitions go back to the time when people couldnâ€™t explain some of the things around them. Today, most of us donâ€™t take superstitions seriously, but itâ€™s fun to find out how some of them started â€” especially since Halloween is a very superstitious time of year.
How Halloween started The Halloween custom goes back 2,000 years. It is probably based on a ceremony that was held around the first of November. The ceremony was led by Druids, who were Celtic priests in Great Britain, Ireland and parts of France. During the event, they honored the souls of the dead who returned to Earth that night. As a part of the celebration, people burned bonfires and wore costumes.
Bats Hundreds of years ago, people linked bats with witches because they both came out at night and disappeared during the day. People were also puzzled by the fact that bats could fly at night and not bump into things. We also think of bats when we think about vampires. â€œDracula,â€? which was written in 1897, features a vampire who can turn into a bat.
Black cats Witches It used to be thought that witches were people who worked magic and cast spells on others. They were thought to be evil because they were friendly with the devil. Halloween was their favorite night.
Toads Toads have been linked with witches. People believed they were poisonous because they thought other animals that ate toads got sick. People also thought they could cause warts, small bumps on the skin, which is not true.
Ancient people thought that black cats were witches in disguise. You may still hear people today say that if a black cat crosses your path, bad luck is on the way. However, in some parts of the world, black cats are thought to bring good luck. Have you seen a black cat lately?

Supersport: Ryan Mathews Height: 6-0 Weight: 218 Hometown: Bakersfield, Calif.
As the NFL season unfolds, keep an eye on Ryan Mathews. The San Diego Chargersâ€™ rookie running back flashes potential that could turn into production. The No. 12 overall pick in the 2010 draft has always had a knack for charging past defenders and finding the end zone. Last year as a junior at Fresno State, Mathews led the nation in rushing with 1,808 yards and racked up 19 touchdowns. In three seasons he amassed 3,280 yards and scored 39 TDs. Not that life has always been touchdowns and triumphs for Ryan. During part of his youth, he was homeless and living in an automobile with his mother. They later moved in with a relative after his mom found work, and their outlook improved. Now Ryan hopes to take advantage of his golden opportunity in the NFL.
More Halloween Fun Halloween has many customs that go along with it. Your family may have holiday traditions including carving pumpkins, trick-or-treating or attending parties.
Jack-oâ€™-lanterns Jack-oâ€™lanterns are carved pumpkins with a candle or other light placed inside. For many years, theyâ€™ve been used to decorate and light up Halloween night. Long ago in Great Britain, people carved lanterns in vegetables such as turnips. But carving jack-oâ€™-lanterns for Halloween is probably a North American custom that came about in the mid- to late-1800s. â€œJack-oâ€™lanternâ€? probably originally meant a night watchman.
Halloween is lots of fun for kids, but itâ€™s also important to be safe. The Mini Page provides some Halloween safety tips for kids and parents. s Choose your costume wisely. Choose a costume that doesnâ€™t need a mask so that you can see clearly. Face paint and makeup can be used to give you a ghoulish grin! Also choose light colors and make sure you can easily walk in your costume without tripping. s Cross the street only at corners. Drivers canâ€™t see kids who dart out between parked cars in the middle of a block. Wait until you reach the corner or a crosswalk to cross. s Carry a flashlight, and add reflective tape to your costume so that drivers can see you. s Stay with friends or adults. Donâ€™t trick-or-treat by yourself. Donâ€™t approach houses where no lights are on; this is a signal that the homeowners are not giving out treats. Donâ€™t go inside the homes of strangers, even if youâ€™re invited.
Costumes Are you planning to wear a costume for Halloween? This custom may have begun with the Druids, who wore masks and disguises in the hope that ghosts wouldnâ€™t recognize them.

Owls Because of their loud, screeching sound and the fact that they come out at night, owls were believed by some people to be witches in disguise. Barn owl photo courtesy U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Reclamation

All the following jokes have something in common. Can you guess the common theme or category?
Cross your fingers!
Some people think 13 is an unlucky number. In fact, many large buildings skip naming the 13th floor; the numbers in the elevator go from 12 to 14. Some experts think this belief might have started with the Last Supper in the Bible, where there were 13 people at the table.
Sometimes we cross our fingers for good luck. Do you think it works? This custom began as a sort of shortcut for people making the sign of the Christian cross. People believed the cross protected them from evil or bad luck.
In ancient times, people believed that their reflection in the water or in glass was really their â€œother self.â€? They thought that if you disturbed this image, you would bring bad luck. Ancient Romans believed that life is renewed every seven years. This is where we got the idea of seven years of bad luck if we break a mirror, disturbing our reflection.
Cross your heart
Crossing your heart shows that you really mean something. Knock on wood Ancient Some people will knock on wood for people believed that the heart was the good luck. Why? Ancient people couldnâ€™t understand center of all knowledge. why some trees stayed green all Donâ€™t spill salt year and At one time, salt was very valuable. others lost People used it for trading, just like their leaves.

Walking under a ladder Even today, many people will not walk under a ladder, believing itâ€™s bad luck. This belief might be traced to the fact that a ladder leaned against a wall forms a triangle. To many Christian people, the triangle stands for the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. If you walked under a ladder, you would break the triangle and bring bad luck.

Local teen organizes Girl Scout reunion TIMES STAFF REPORT
Local Girl Scout Blythe Leonard is taking action to use her leadership skills and plan a Girl Scout reunion for Saturday, Oct. 30 from 2-4 p.m., at Memorial United Methodist Church. Current and former members are invited to return to Memorial and reminisce about past Girl Scout experiences. Leonard, a member of Girl Scout Troop 40652 of Memorial United Methodist Church, is working toward fulfilling the requirements to complete the project for her Girl Scout Gold Award, which is the highest award that can be achieved in Girl Scouts. The project must fulfill a need or address an issue within the community. The Girl Scout must demonstrate organizational, leadership and networking skills while completing the project, which requires a minimum of 65 hours. The project also requires the teen to secure a project advisor to provide guidance during the project planning and implementation. When Leonard decided to organize a Girl Scout reunion for Memorial, she felt this would be a great way to gather past and present Girl Scouts and have everyone share some of their most precious memories about Girl Scouting. This event could spark a renewal of Girl Scouting at Memorial since it has declined in recent years. â€œGirl Scouting has always been important to this church,â€? Leonard said. â€œI think it is time to honor and remember all the leaders and Girl Scouts that have dedicated so many hours to Girl Scouting.â€? During the reunion, Leonard will unveil an oak memorabilia cabi-

net which she recently restored, and will use it to display a collection of Girl Scout items donated by past and present Girl Scouts. This cabinet will be permanently displayed in the Girl Scout classroom in the Christian Enrichment Center at Memorial. â€œThe purpose of the cabinet is to reminisce about past Girl Scouting years in this church,â€? said Leonard. â€œIt will also show little girls what Girl Scouting is about and make them excited about being a Girl Scout. I believe that young girls need to know how much fun Girl Scouting can be for them.â€? Leonard has been a Girl Scout member of each program level at Memorial Church for the past 12 years. She is the third generation in her family to be an active member of a Girl Scout troop at Memorial. Her mother, Jane Leonard, and grandmother, Pauline Cox, also

Bravo for Bravi
Thomasville tennis player reaches state championships See Story Below
Bulldogs aim to take CCC lead BY ZACH KEPLEY Sports Editor
CALENDAR FRIDAY FOOTBALL Thomasville @ Salisbury 7:30 p.m.
Speed is something the Thomasville Bulldogs use to their advantage on Friday nights, but that edge will be taken away this week when they travel one county over to play the Salisbury Hornets at Ludwig Stadium. “They are extremely fast and athletic, and as the old saying goes, ‘Speed kills,’” said THS assistant coach Dickie Cline. “We have got to be ready to go and give it our best shot.” Salisbury has a 6-3 overall record, but
are 3-0 in the Central Carolina Conference, tied atop the league with Thomasville. The contest will have a lot at stake with the winner being guaranteed at least a share of the conference crown. But that is something the Bulldogs have not given much thought to. “We haven’t emphasized anything like that,” Cline said. “Our approach has been the same every week. Hopefully, whatever happens, good or bad Friday night, we will still have an opportunity to play for a long time. We look at every game the same and hopefully our kids will be ready to play.” Lexington fell victim to the Hornets last
week by a 30-10 score, and SHS finished off Central a week before that, 56-37. Salisbury has a full arsenal of weapons they can turn to in their wishbone offense, headed up by running back Romar Morris, who has already committed to play for the North Carolina Tar Heels. Joining him in the backfield is quarterback John Knox and tailback Dominique Dismuke. All three are explosive when the ball is in their hands and will keep the Thomasville defense on its toes. “They have so many weapons and each

Storm get struggling Panthers Friday
BY ZACH KEPLEY Sports Editor WALLBURG — Moments after the Chapel Hill Tigers swept their way to the third round of the North Carolina High School Athletic Association 3-A state playoffs over Ledford, Panthers’ coach Kara Berrier summed up what has been a terrific run by her team. “It is sad to see it end, but it has been an amazing season,” she said. “This is the best team I have coached and the best season I have ever had.” Ledford was coming off one of its best performances of the season in the first round, but ran into a buzz-saw named Chapel Hill Tuesday. The Tigers — the No. 2 seed out of the Carolina Conference — used its height and a revolving door of hard hitters at the net, finishing off the No. 1 seed Panthers in straight sets, 25-17, 25-22, 25-17. “We have not played this level of competition all season long,” said Berrier. “Big blockers, big hitters — that makes it tough. I didn’t feel like we were intimidated, but I think it just took a little adjusting.” Chapel Hill led 4-0 to

The return of Chuck Henderson’s Asheboro Blue Comets brought very few positive talking points for Ledford’s football team this week. A 21-7 defeat was not exactly what the Panthers had in mind for Homecoming. Nevertheless, they press on having been bested by the Comets and sophomore quarterback Jordan Blackwell. “Offensively, we just had a bad night. It’s kind of one of those deals where whatever can go wrong does go wrong,” Adams said. “The defense kept us in the game and even got a score late. Two of their scores came on plays we defended well, where their quarterback turned what should have been negative plays into positive ones. Sometimes that’s just how it goes.” The unfortunate reality is that describes how the Panthers’ season

Thomasville’s Bravi makes history with state tourney berth BY ZACH KEPLEY Sports Editor Followers of Thomasville High School athletics may not have ever heard of the name Natalie Bravi, but the senior tennis player is quickly making herself known, and making a little history in the process. After finishing third in the North Carolina High School Athletic Association Midwest 2A Regionals over the weekend, Bravi has now qualified for the state tennis championships this weekend in Cary. A commendable feat in itself, but one made even more special considering she is the first player from the school to qualify in more than 25 years.
“To my knowledge, Natalie is the first one to qualify since 1983,” said THS tennis coach Janet Wright. “She is just an awesome player with tremendous power.” At a school known for its history on the gridiron and hardwood, Bravi is ecstatic to be able and point the spotlight towards another sport. “It feels great to do something in other than basketball and football,” she said. “It feels really good to make states.” To reach the tournament, Bravi had to make it through Friday’s action and needed to win both matches. In the first round, Bravi made

Colangelo gets look at No. 1 ranked Blue Devils BY STEVE WISEMAN Durham Herald Sun DURHAM â€” Most of Dukeâ€™s players experienced winning the NCAA menâ€™s basketball championship in April, and all of them are predicted to be part of another successful team this season. With the reigning champion Blue Devils ranked No. 1 in nearly every preseason poll, Jerry Colangelo offered a warning Tuesday about thinking the success will automatically come again. Colangelo, the former Phoenix Suns owner and general manager who is USA Basketballâ€™s managing director, addressed the Blue Devils prior to watching practice at Cameron Indoor Stadium. â€œTheyâ€™ve got a lot of talent and a lot of expectations,â€? Colangelo said. â€œYou canâ€™t take anything for granted. You have to earn it. Thatâ€™s why you have to play the games.â€? Colangelo, elected to the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2004 for his work in building the Suns since 1968, told the Blue Devils about how he felt when the Suns first reached the NBA Finals in 1976. Even though Phoenix lost to Boston, reaching that level in the franchiseâ€™s eighth season had Colangelo believing the Suns were on top to stay. Alas, they didnâ€™t make it back to the finals until 1993.
â€œI was thinking it was going to be easy, and it took 17 years to get back there,â€? Colangelo said. â€œSo when you have an opportunity, you never know if you will get a second bite at the apple. Things happen.â€? He thinks this yearâ€™s Duke team is capable of getting another chance at a championship. â€œTheyâ€™re primed,â€? Colangelo said. â€œThey have a great, great opportunity. Coach [Mike Krzyzewski] says he really likes their team. He really thinks they have a chance to be terrific. â€œHe doesnâ€™t go that far unless he believes it. So the expectations are high for this team. That will be a challenge to maintain.â€? The Blue Devils return senior starters Kyle Singler and Nolan Smith. Freshman point guard Kyrie Irving is stepping in at point guard, with brothers Mason and Miles Plumlee manning the post positions. Those five worked together as a unit during practice Tuesday, which was opened to those attending a leadership conference at Dukeâ€™s Fuqua School of Business. Duke also has a deep bench featuring perimeter players Andre Dawkins, Seth Curry and Tyler Thornton, plus freshman forward Josh Hairston and sophomore forward Ryan Kelly, which allows the Blue Devils to push an up-tempo style. â€œLast year, we didnâ€™t have depth on the perimeter,â€? Krzyzewski told the crowd watching practice. â€œFa-

this year. The offensive line has vastly improved from the beginning of the season, making the holes much wider to run through for the lightning-quick Thomasville backfield. Quarterback Sam Nelson has found three quality targets in Shaquan Johnson, Kenneth Mitchell and Sharaun Mouzone, racking up 833 passing yards with nine touchdowns. â€œFor us, we have got to play physical, hard-nosed and try and control the football,â€? said Cline. â€œWe need to protect it and try to grind out yards.â€?

BRAVI From page B1 quick work of North Surryâ€™s Sarah Glasco winning 6-1, 6-1. Seeking a berth into Saturdayâ€™s semifinals, Bravi had to get through West Stanlyâ€™s Allison Swaringen. That match was no problem at all, with Bravi cruising 61, 6-3, giving her a spot in the tournament. Her next opponent was someone she knows all too well. Salisburyâ€™s Madeline Hoskins had defeated Bravi in the Central Carolina Conference tournament the week before by scores of 6-2, 6-1, and she duplicated that performance with a win, forcing Bravi to the third place match. Bravi (14-4) successfully clinched the No. 3 seed out of the region, shutting out Hannah Moxley of West Stanly 6-0, 6-0. Not bad for a young lady who has only been playing the sport since age 13. Northwoodâ€™s Catherine Shachtman awaits in the first round this weekend, and Bravi is anxious to get started. â€œI am a little nervous, but I am pretty much ready for it,â€? she said. As for facing Hoskins again, Bravi will have to wait until the championship to get that chance. Players from the same re-
gions are placed in different brackets, so the two cannot meet up until the finals. When asked if she would like another shot at her, Bravi responded, â€œI would. She is competitive and it is hard playing against her.â€? Sports Editor Zach Kepley can be reached at 888-3631, or at email@example.com.

LEDFORD From page B1 An 11-4 run tied the score at 13-13, as the teams remained close with another tie coming at 17-all. Three quick points by the visitors had Ledford calling for time, but the closest LHS would get from there is two. Ledford survived three game points for a 24-22 score, but Helena Archer made sure the fourth one counted with a running kill. â€œWe started to get there that second match and we
had that level of intensity,â€? said Berrier. â€œOur serving was the strongest part of our game and that is something their blockers could not touch.â€? Ledford led for the last time on the night with Cady Rayâ€™s kill to start the third game. Chapel Hill took six of the next seven points, as the season began to slip away for the Panthers. The Tigers led by five midway through, but Ledford nibbled it back down to three to stay alive. Chapel Hill kept feeding the ball to Layden on the outside, though, stretching the
lead out farther and farther. Stevi Williams gave her team one last thrill with a kill to stave off match point, but Kiaya Robinsonâ€™s shot would be the last, as it rode the net and just fell over for the final point. Ray finished the night with 12 assists while Barnes had seven kills and seven assists. Ledford concluded the year with a 21-4 record.

Appointed to sell stock for the railroad in Davidson County, N.C. Senator John Warick Thomas a Caswell County native realized that right along the railroad tracks would be the perfect place to start a community, especially almost right in the geographic center of the state.
Born June 27, 1800, Thomas was a Whig representative from Davidson County in the N.C. General Assembly in 1831, and was elected to the state Senate in 1842. In 1856, Thomas took a bill to Raleigh to incorporate the town of Thomasville, which was ratiďŹ ed on Jan. 8, 1857. Along with helping establish Thomasville, Thomas recognized the importance of education for young women. He purchased the Glen Anna Female Seminary south of Thomasville and constructed an imposing four-story brick building on East Main, north of the railroad. In 1857, he moved the school into his new village.
The railroad is the factor as to why we as Thomasville are located here, with the railroad going down through the middle of the city, Thomasville Mayor Joe Bennett says. All of that is extremely important about the town and Thomas, along with his wife, of course the people that Mary Lambeth, laid the foundation for the city of have made it.

Thomasville and what is was to become. About 158 years later, Thomasville has grown from a small railroad town to a city with a population of 25,400. Thomas died on May 17, 1871. The city erected a statue of Thomas in his honor, which now resides near the Depot on Main St, and, or course, near the railroads tracks for which the town was built.

GET From page B1 has gone. Whether it’s Murphy’s Law or a more tangible consequence of inexperience, what began as a season of promise for the young football team has become a year of transition. As the Panthers continue to gradually shift gears in looking further into the future of the program, Ledford’s talented defense will once again face a tall task Friday. “We got to go play Southern (Guilford). They’re coming off a big win over North Forsyth, so I imagine they’ll be excited,” Adams said. “They’re a scary team offensively. It’s a three- and four-receiver, hurry-up offense. They’ve got a big quarterback that’s 6-foot4. We can’t let him get in any sort of rhythm. We’re going to have our hands full.” To slow down the highoctane Storm, players must remain disciplined and adhere to individual assignments, one of the

To sign up for the class call Livingston at 687-0290 or go by the fire department.
primary concerns Adams has with his squad. Mental mistakes have left Ledford in a spot familiar to many rebuilding teams. Underclassmen are now being tested as starters and the process of transformation is not always an expedient one. “Sometimes it looks like when we take one step forward, we take two steps back. A lot of it is that we’ve had to remake our lineup,” Adams said. “It’s hard to get that consistency and measure those guys accurately when we’re ever-changing, but what I will say is that they’re still getting better. Unfortunately, it just may not show up until next season.” East Davidson @ West Davidson Not quite a week removed from one of the more memorable Homecoming games for East Davidson, the Golden Eagles are preparing for Friday night’s contest at West Davidson with a much different outlook than the one they’ve maintained for the last
few weeks. East (2-7) possesses a four-game losing streak, but enters the week with a renewed level of confidence in coming off an inspired effort against Central Davidson. Trailing 34-6 at halftime last week, the Eagles scored five times in the second half and fell just three points shy of the upset in a 40-37 final. This week they travel to Tyro to play the Green Dragons, who are dealing with their own struggles in the Central Carolina 2-A. West is looking to improve to 5-5 on the season after suffering a 42-0 drubbing at the hands of Thomasville. Both East and West are still in search of their first win in the CCC.

Tart presents chilling ghost stories to Woman’s Club TIMES STAFF REPORT
The general meeting of the Thomasville Woman’s Club was held on Oct. 12 with Lorie Tart, Children’s Coordinator of the Thomasville Public Library, as the speaker. Tart, whose work with the library and schoolage children, has led her to research tales of ghosts in the area. From the Brown Mountain Lights to Blackbeard the pirate, North Carolina is a state full of unusual specters and haunted places. Tart chose three tragic stories of individuals who left their ghostly presence behind in places closer to home. The three ghosts we were introduced to were Lydia, Officer George Arnold Kemp and Lucas. Lydia is the famous ghost of the graffiti covered Jamestown Bridge. Her tragic story begins one December night in 1923. She and her prom date were driving on the original Jamestown Bridge when the car skidded around a curve and crashed into the bridge. Lydia survived the crash and attempted to get help from passing vehicles while standing in her blood-soaked white prom dress. Those who saw her thought it must have been some kind of a joke and Lydia finally succumbed to her injuries and died on the side of the road. She now makes two appearances to travelers appealing to them to stop and help her to get home. She can either be found near the older original tunnel or at the newer more familiar bridge a short distance from the tunnel where the car crash happened many years ago. She is such a physical presence that many have stopped to offer the young Lydia a ride home. When her mother was living, she would have to inform Lydia’s victims that her daughter was dead. Using books and a website dedicated to haunted areas and paranormal research in North Carolina, actual facts have been discovered about Lydia. A death certificate was found on a Lydia Jane M. born in 1904 in High Point, and her death was recorded on Dec. 31, 1923 from fatal injuries sustained from an automobile accident. On Dec. 7, 1942, officer George Arnold Kemp was last seen by his partner around 4 a.m. as they split up to do their rounds. When he did not show up to take his turn to answer calls at his desk, a search began. Finally, around 3 p.m., his body was found in the elevator shaft of the local bank. He had died from a wound to the back of his head and was placed in the shaft near the first floor of the bank. There was no blood evidence at the crime scene even when Officer Kemp was removed from the shaft. The building is now used as Thomasville City Hall. Workers to this day report hearing strange sounds, having the door of the ladies restroom opened for them, and the newer elevator moving from floor to floor on its own. It is speculated he met his demise when he discovered illegal gambling in the ladies restroom with the participants being city councilmen and bank officials. Several members recalled the gossip at the time of his death — a promised deathbed con-
fession from a city councilman. This still remains an unsolved murder mystery in Thomasville. The last story involves a ghost named Lucas and his haunting of the now demolished San-Mor Furniture factory. Before a building was even built on the property, there had been a farm on the site. A man wearing a plaid shirt and khaki pants was found hanged in the barn. It was never determined whether he THURSDAY EVENING CBS PBS FOX NBC ION CW ABC MNT WLXI

A letter from Heaven for Stephanie, Nikki, Daniel and Family!
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say. But first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay. I'm writing this from Heaven where I dwell with God above, here, there's no more tears of sadness, here is just eternal love. Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight, Remember that I am with you every morning noon and night. That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through. God picked me up and hugged me and He siad "I welcome you" "It's good to have you back again, you were missed while you were gone. As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on, There is so much that we can do to help our mortal man". God gave me a list of thinks, that he wished for me to do, and foremost on that list, was to watch and care for you. So when you lie in bed at night the days chores put to flight, God and I are closest to you in the middle of the night. When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years, because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears. But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain. I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned. If I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand. One thing is for certain though my life on earth is through, I'm closer to you now than ever and oh I do love you! There are rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb, but together we can do it by taking one day at a time. When you are walking down the street and you've got me on your mind; I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind. So when it is your time to go from that body to be free, remember you're not going you're coming here to me. Love, MOM Linda Brooks.
