Local resident makes citizen’s arrest BY ELIOT DUKE Staff Writer

An Archdale man got more than he bargained for Tuesday when he tried to steal from a Thomasville company. According to a Davidson County Sheriff ’s Office press release, Joey Duane Eads, 27, of 6148 Mendenhall Place in Archdale, was in the process of stealing scrap metal from an outbuilding across the street

The citizen, who Grice didn’t want to name, had a concealed weapon permit and managed to detain the suspect while waiting for deputies to arrive at the scene. “We certainly appreciate his bravery and assistance,” said Grice. “But we would advise people to take a more safe course of action, like just observe until we get there.

Lights, candles and cooking may make the holiday season festive, but without proper care, they also increase a family’s risk of a home fire. “Unattended cooking is the leading cause of U.S. home fires and home fire injuries, usually involving the stovetop,” said Dolly Hulin, fire and life safety director at Thomasville Fire Department. “We recommend that parents create a ‘kid-free zone’ at least three feet around the stove or any areas where hot food and drinks are prepared.” The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recommends that people stay in the kitchen when frying, grilling or broiling food. When simmering, boiling, basting or roasting, check food

TPD TOY DRIVE The Thomasville Police Department recently concluded its annual toy drive. The toy drive began in November and ended last week with the presentation of the toys to Cooperative Community Ministries, who will distribute the toys to local children. Members of the Thomasville Police Department and other city departments donated a variety of toys for all ages. The Police Department has led this drive for over 10 years and says it will continue to support this effort in helping the community. Front, from left are Officer Jeremy Rowe, Officer Brandon Widener, Lt. Raymond Widener, Officer Chet Jarrell (back) Officer Eric Taylor, Ann Williams, Sonja Crumbley, Sgt. Jason Baity and Cindy Pope.

This year, the Thomasville Times/Parks and Recreation Community Food Challenge needs the community’s help more than ever. The need is much greater than in recent years, but donations are off to a slow start. Only 1,800 items into the goal of 10,000, the Times encourages its readers to give anything they can to help serve local families. “We’ve seen a drop in the number of businesses signing up for the food drive this year, as well as the number of items each are able to collect,” Times Editor Lisa Wall said. “Our hope is to have a big push in donations these last few weeks to help these agencies serve families in need in our community.”

Economy takes toll on donations BY ELIOT DUKE Staff Writer

Tough economic times not only affect how much people can give to their own families, it impacts the amount of money that is often donated to local organizations whose main purpose is helping those in need. So is the case for the High Point-Thomasville chapter of the American Red Cross. Over the past year, monetary donations are down considerably, forcing the nonprofit organization into making some difficult decisions. “I would say donations are down between 10 and 12 percent,” Bob Ziegler, executive

‘We are already on a cost-saving mode and have been for quite awhile.’ — Robert Ziegler High Point-Thomasville Chapter, American Red Cross director for the local chapter, said. “We’re already on a costsaving mode and have been for awhile.” One of those cost-saving measures involved the organization not filling two positions in the past year. Ziegler said

Community Sponsor

a staff member had to be laid off a year ago and another position left vacant has yet to be filled. Volunteers have stepped up and helped fill the void, and the nonprofit has had to look at other ways to save every dollar. “We’ve got a couple positions that we’re not filling for the time being,” said Ziegler. “We’ve changed some internal operations, like working with a cheaper copy machine. Every little thing we can find and do, we’re doing.” Due to lack of donations, Ziegler said the local Red Cross is having to dip into reserve funds to get by while op-

One of the organizations benefitting from the food drive is His Laboring Few Ministries, located at 812 Martin Luther King Drive in Thomasville. The group runs a food pantry every Saturday from 9 to 1, and it gives emergency care throughout the week. Robin St. John, with His Laboring Few, said that the number of families served has increased from 50 families in the summer to between 70 and 80 families currently. “The numbers of people needing food, needing toys and needing clothes is increasing, and the number of people donating is decreasing,� St. John said. “That’s leaving us with a large deficit. The majority of the need

is for food.� The Community Food Challenge runs through Dec. 31. Donors can register by calling 888-3590, and they can drop off non-perishable items at the Thomasville Parks & Recreation Administration office at 1 E. Main St. from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. “I’ve been here almost 10 years, and I’ve never seen it get so hard to come by food,� St. John said. “Basically, we are just running out of everything ... It really means a lot for people to get out and give this year, as much as they can, because there are people out there that are really hungry — including children.� While many of the people His Laboring Few now serves are senior citizens, others are parents who have no way to support their children. Since

last fall, unemployment has grown dramatically nationwide, and many people are no longer eligible for government benefits. “We’re seeing people who have lost their jobs and can’t find work, and they have looked everywhere,� St. John said. “It’s not like people are just out here wanting food for free. They’re actually trying.� St. John said that in the past, the Thomasville Times Community Food Challenge has helped His Laboring Few “immensely,� because there is such a great need in the winter months. Only one other major food drive — run by the post office — benefits the organization, and it relies on smaller donations from churches during the rest of the year. “We appreciate the Times and all the people

who take the time to go out and buy a can of food and donate it,� St. John said. “They can know in their heart that they are actually making a difference in someone’s life — that somebody doesn’t go to bed hungry tonight, because they’re making a difference. We appreciate that greatly.� St. John said that His Laboring Few also is trying to give toys to 300 children, but they still are in desperate need of donations toward that goal. The organization also is accepting donations to help feed about 3,800 people a hot Christmas dinner. The free dinner will be served at Carter Brothers Barbecue, 2305 North Main St. in High Point, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Dec. 25. “We deliver many of those meals free to shut-ins and the elderly

— people who call and say they’re spending Thanksgiving or Christmas alone,� St. John said. “You typically don’t think about that.� For more information about His Laboring Few Ministries, call 475-2455.

erating in a deficit. From Sept. 1 to Nov. 15, the Red Cross was in a freeze as the United Way conducted its fundraising campaign, and hopes are that donations pick up in the beginning of next year. “We have our major fundraising activities in the next two quarters, during spring and summer events,� Ziegler said. “That’s usually when we pull ourselves out of a hole. It will be a little nerve-racking next year, but I’m confident the people will support us and we’ll end up fine.� Ziegler said the best indicator as to the organization’s finances is its direct mail campaign. All of those $10 and $100 checks are what’s down so far as the country’s recession continues. While the Red Cross’ services are not usually economically driven, Ziegler said what has been on the increase is military emergency cases. With so many people having family members overseas, military families turn to the Red Cross for

ARREST From page 1 buildings, but he didn’t feel the need to send anyone over to investigate. Cox said the buildings are old and set to be torn down. “[The neighbor] called and said he saw someone over there, ad he knows us pretty well and knew that no one really goes over there,� Cox said. “I don’t really know why anyone would want to break in over there. I don’t really know what there is to take.� Eads was arrested and charged with two counts of breaking and entering and one count of attempted larceny. He was issued a $5,000 secured bond and is scheduled to appear in court on Jan. 19. The citizen wasn’t charged in the incident.

emergency loans to pay bills. The Red Cross helps families fill out the paperwork and then front the money once a loan is approved. The money is eventually paid back to the Red Cross. “That is due to the economy — military families having a tough times while a serviceman is stationed somewhere around the world,� said Ziegler. “Maybe the spouse becomes unemployed or there’s delay in the direct deposit of a check. They come to us and they need a loan from military relief. Usually we do two or three a year. We’ve done four in the past three weeks.� While monetary donations may be down, the same can’t be said for blood donations. At Tuesday’s blood drive in High Point, considered one of the largest in the state, a total of 422 units of blood were donated, exceeding the Red Cross’ goal of 375. The Red Cross will count on two major fundraising events in 2010. The Heroes of the Red Cross campaign begins in March and there will be a banquet in May. Anyone interested in donating money can call 885-9121 or log on to www.redcross.org.

SAFETY From page 1 regularly and use a timer. If there is a small grease fire, slide a lid over the pan, turn off the stovetop and leave the pan covered until it is completely cooled. For a small oven fire, turn off the heat and keep the door closed. Hulin said that in the event of a cooking fire, family members should leave immediately, close the door behind them and call 911. If someone tries to fight the fire, the person should be sure that others are getting out and he or she has access to an exit. “December is the peak month for home candle fires,� Hulin said. “More than half of all candle fires start when candles

If the tree dries out, the lights can cause a fire.� A stand for a fresh tree should hold at least one gallon of water, because a six-foot tree can use up to a gallon of water every two days, Hulin said. Artificial trees should be labeled as fire-retardant, according to the NFPA. Only use UL-approved lights on Christmas trees, and do not link more than three strands together.

Make sure that if you’re burning candles, keep them at least 12 inches away from anything that can burn, and remember to blow them out when you go to bed or leave the room.� The NFPA recommends using battery-operated flameless candles, which look and smell like real candles. When using traditional candles, use candleholders that are sturdy and won’t tip over. Never leave a child alone in a room with a burning candle. Lit candles should never be used to decorate Christmas trees, which Hulin said create another major fire hazard during the holiday season. “As it gets right up to the day we unwrap pres-

Hide the decline ... and more VIEWPOINT

DAVID HARSANYI Syndicated Columnist In this country, even a global warming denialist with a carbon fetish and bad intentions has the right to see the inner workings of government. Or, at least, he should. When leaked e-mails recently exposed talk of manipulating scientific evidence on global warming, Kevin Trenberth, head of the Climate Analysis Section at The National Center for Atmospheric Research, argued that skeptics and other evildoers had cherry-picked and presented his comments out of context. To rectify this injustice, I sent Trenberth (and NCAR) a Freedom of Information Act request asking for his e-mail correspondences with other renowned climate scientists in an effort to help contextualize what they’ve been talking about. Surely the tragically uninformed among us could use some perspective on these innocuous comments by Trenberth: “We can’t account for the lack of warming at the moment, and it is a travesty that we can’t”; “we are (not) close to knowing where energy is going or whether clouds are changing to make the planet brighter.” Trenberth, lead author of the 1995, 2001 and 2007 assessments of climate change by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, obtains approximately 95 percent of his funding through the federal government, via the National Science Foundation. Well, soon after my request was fired off, I was informed by NCAR’s counsel that the organization is, in fact, not a federal agency — because its budget is laundered through the National Science Foundation — and thus is under no obligation to provide information to the public. “Why don’t you put all your e-mails online for everyone to see?” Trenberth helpfully suggested to me. “My e-mail is none of your business.” Now, generally, I would

agree. It’s every American citizen’s hallowed duty to mind his or her own freaking business — except in those rare instances when one of those citizens happens to be a taxpayer-funded eco-crusader utilizing his appointed station in life to promote policy that sticks its nose into the lives of every American. I’m afraid snarky columnizing, on the other hand, is not federally funded — at least not yet. In fact, Trenberth’s work is one reason the nation is moving toward rationed energy use via cap-and-trade legislation. His work is one reason the Environmental Protection Agency, through its endangerment findings on carbon emissions, can regulate industry by decree. It is Trenberth’s governmentfinanced science that drives public policy across this country. Yet Trenberth has less accountability to the public than the local parks department. He is not alone. The Competitive Enterprise Institute — one of those troglodytefunded, big-screen-televisionloving outfits — was forced to file three notices of intent to file suit against NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, demanding the organization provide documents and raw data that were requested under the Freedom of Information Act three years ago. Chris Horner, an attorney and senior fellow at CEI working on the NASA case, says of NCAR: “Without government, these jobs would not exist; that is a reasonable threshold test to determine whether documents should be available to the taxpayer.” Public confidence continues to fall on the global warming alarmism front. But if the evidence of coming tragedy is as incontrovertible as we’re told, taxpayers certainly should not have to beg those they pay to hand it over. At the very least, taxpayers should be able to hold government-funded scientific institutions to the same level of accountability to which they hold their local dog pounds.

The Democrats blinked VIEWPOINT

JOE CONASON Syndicated Columnist By bowing to Sen. Joseph Lieberman and his obstructive pals in both parties on health care reform, President Obama has confirmed what Republicans always say about Democrats: They simply aren’t strong enough to govern. Or at least the Democrats elected last year — and their colleagues in the Senate leadership — don’t seem to be. Their moment of truth came when Rahm Emanuel, the White House chief of staff and self-styled tough guy from Chicago, urged the Senate majority leader, Harry Reid, to strip out the most progressive aspects of the proposed health care reform bill in order to appease Lieberman. Unless the Connecticut senator got his way, he threatened to join a Republican filibuster — conniving with a political minority to kill reforms that a majority of Americans has wanted and needed for decades. Neither Emanuel nor his boss possesses the courage to call the bluff of the reform opponents and urge a victory

for that majority through the legislative process known as “reconciliation,” which allows the Senate leadership to stuff a sock in the mouth of the filibuster. Instead, they have surrendered to the same forces that want nothing more than to frustrate and ruin them. Not surprisingly, this spectacle of capitulation evokes disgust among many Democrats, surpassed only by the revulsion they feel as they gaze upon Lieberman’s self-satisfied grin. His inconsistency is designed not to achieve any principled outcome but to create turmoil in the legislative process. He now says, for instance, that Americans between 55 and 64 years old must not be permitted to purchase coverage under Medicare, as Senate Democrats wanted. But that is precisely what he endorsed when he ran for vice president with Al Gore in 2000, when he ran for president himself in 2004 and as recently as three months ago, when he gave an interview on health care reform to a newspaper in his home state. Back when he was running for re-election in 2006, he sought desperately to persuade Connecticut voters that he shared their progressive views despite his support for the Iraq war. “I’m saying to the people of Connecticut, I can do more for you and your families to get something done to make health care affordable, to get universal health insurance,” he proclaimed during a debate with challenger Ned Lamont.

“That’s what the Democratic Party is all about.” By now we know that he doesn’t really care what the Democratic Party is all about — especially when the issue is achieving reforms of health care that have been a central objective of Democrats throughout his lifetime. He is said to care much more about avenging his defeat by Democratic voters in the primary three years ago. But there is no need to speculate on his lowdown motives. Everyone knows he is a servant of the insurance and pharmaceutical industries that have always paid his campaign bills and sometimes maintained his spouse, Hadassah, on their payrolls, either directly or indirectly. He is aggressively eager to block legislation inimical to their interests. While observing the worst expressions of Lieberman’s character, the public has learned about the president’s defects, as well. Three years ago, Obama supported the Connecticut senator when few liberals would and then defended his senatorial privileges this year, even after he had endorsed and campaigned for John McCain and Sarah Palin in 2008. Now Lieberman has repaid those favors with spite — and that smart, tenacious, cool leader in the White House did nothing but flinch. Joe Conason writes for the New York Observer (www. observer.com).

Dalton not too happy with team

‘We did not play Ledford basketball tonight.’ — Scott Dalton

‘We picked up our pressure and intensity just a little bit more.’

Boys Coach

— John Ralls Girls Coach

BY ZACH KEPLEY Sports Editor

BY ZACH KEPLEY Sports Editor WALLBURG — The way the game played out for Ledford’s boys basketball team Tuesday against West Davidson, they may just count their blessings and forget the night ever existed. Ledford has been the story of the year so far, coming up with some huge nonconference wins early on. They got another one by holding off the Green Dragons 51-44, but the way they got it was not all that satisfying to head coach Scott Dalton. Building a 31-17 at the half, they looked nothing like one of the best teams in the county in the second half. Ledford never allowed West to get any closer than the final margin of victory, but their performance, if given a grade would have barely been passing. “I am not real pleased with anything tonight,” said Dalton. “West Davidson did a nice job of making us look bad, and I think we did a nice job of assisting with that. I am not worried about margin of victory — I am worried about how we play and we did not play Ledford basketball tonight. Mentally, we were not there. We had a couple of big wins last week and we may be a victim of our own success a little bit. Maybe we just thought we were a little better than we were.” Everything was on par in the first eight minutes

Scheyer nets 36 as Blue Devils roll BY BRYAN STRICKLAND Durham Herald Sun Jon Scheyer poured in a career-high 36 points, while Dawkins scored 16 off the bench in his first game since the death of his sister in an automobile accident, as the Blue Devils dominated Gardner-Webb 113-68 at Cameron Indoor Stadium. “Jon’s performance was spectacular — to hit 36 points with 13 shots is about as good as you can get,” Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said. “I was really pleased with Andre, going through the week that he’s gone through, being away to deal with the tragic death of his sister. “I thought his performance was outstanding.” Scheyer and Dawkins

had plenty of help, with four other players scoring in double digits as the No. 7 Blue Devils (8-1) put up their largest point total since scoring 121 against N.C. Central to open the 2007-08 season. Big men Miles Plumlee and Brian Zoubek scored 13 points apiece, while the team’s leading scorers on the season — Kyle Singler and Nolan Smith — added 11 apiece. Singler was questionable to play because of an ankle sprain but started the game, albeit slowly, not scoring until he hit a free throw at the 16:40 mark of the second half. Singler went on to score all of his points in roughly 10 minutes. On the other hand, Scheyer scored from start to finish. He had

gone 5-of-23 from 3-point range over his previous four games but hit all five of his 3-point attempts over the game’s first 15 minutes. The fifth one gave Duke a 41-22 lead after Gardner-Webb (3-5) had trailed just 17-16 after seven minutes. At the time of his fifth of his seven 3-pointers, Scheyer’s 22 points matched Gardner-Webb’s total and was more than his teammates combined. “I’ve been working real hard on my shot. The last 10 days since we haven’t had a game, it’s given us a lot of time to work on our individual games,” said Scheyer, who hit 7 of 9 3-pointers, all four of his two-pointers and all seven of his free throws. “I hadn’t been playing

really well, and it wasn’t just about my shot — I didn’t feel like I was playing as well as I could be. “Tonight, I was just excited to get out there and play because we haven’t played in a long time, and my stroke did feel real good.” Even though Scheyer put up the most points in a game by a Duke player since J.J. Redick in 2006, it wasn’t all about scoring. Scheyer also had nine assists and eight rebounds — joining Danny Ferry and Jim Spanarkel as the only Duke players to have at least 30 points, eight rebounds and eight assists in a game. And in the process, Scheyer became the first player in school history

WALLBURG — Ledford girls basketball coach John Ralls has been around the game for a long time, but he has n e v e r quite had a season start the way this one has. The injury-ridRalls dled Lady Panthers have been working without several key contributors, and West Davidson tried its best to take advantage of that on Tuesday. In the end, though, the Lady Panthers still had too much firepower for the undersized Green Dragons, as Ledford coasted in the second half on its way to a 53-29 blowout. LHS has been without leading post player Carman Pericozzi for many games now, and three other players are out with injuries as well. All have taken a turn getting an MRI, and all Ralls can do is take it in stride. “We’re keeping the dadgum imaging center in business,” Ralls said with a smile. “It is just tough, but we have to go on and that is one of the reasons why you keep 14 players.” The upset-minded Dragons found themselves hanging with Ledford after one quarter, as Chelsea Sarver kept them close with six points over the first eight minutes as WDHS trailed 14-12. Ledford played poorly on defense, allowing West to drive the lane and shoot uncontested shots. West continued to hang with the Lady Panthers as Olivia Myers took her turn at being the leader in the second quarter. Her two 3-pointers erased a six point lead, as the game became tied up at 20-all. That was all Ledford needed to see, as the lack-

RUN From page 7 luster defense they had played for 13 minutes changed over into an energized, smothering one over the final three minutes of the half. West could not find room to shoot and Ledford started hitting more shots on their end of the floor. Brooke Baldwin rebounded a missed free throw and put it back in, then Stevi Williams had a layup 15 seconds later to ignite a 13-0 run. It all ended at the buzzer as Chelsea Freeman hoisted up a quick turnaround jumper that somehow found its way into the basket. “We got in the passing lanes and got some tips and deflections, got a couple easy baskets and were able to relax a bit,” said Ralls. “We picked up our pressure and intensity just a little bit more. “We did a good job of limiting looks and we did not give them a lot of second chance points.” Ledford’s defense had more in store for the second half, limiting West to a single basket, outscoring them 13-2 in the third quarter. Megan Surles scored two buckets for LHS before Myers knocked in a jumper for the Green Dragons. It was all black and white from there, as Williams scored four points, Molly Saintsing scored on a turnaround and Taylor Parks tossed in a 3-pointer to build a 46-22 advantage. That would be the end of what turned out to be a 26-2 stretch going back to the three minute mark of the second quarter. Williams finished with 14 points and Freeman 10. Myers tallied 10 points for West. Pericozzi may be back in time for the New-

None of Scheyer’s assists went to Dawkins, but his teammates have provided him with invaluable assistance since Duke’s most recent game. Dawkins’ sister, Lacey, was killed in a car accident on Dec. 5 on her way to watch Duke’s last game before exam break, a victory over St. John’s. His mother, Tamara Hill, was injured in the wreck, though Dawkins said Tuesday that her injuries were minor enough that she was released from the hospital the day of the accident. Dawkins went home to deal with the tragedy, then returned to school Saturday along with Krzyzewski and assistant coach Nate James,

who attended the funeral in Charleston, W.Va., along with athletic director Kevin White. “I really appreciate all the support from the fans and alumni,” Dawkins said. “Even [UNC] coach Roy Williams sent some flowers. I just appreciate all of that. “I didn’t think it was tough to focus. Once I got in here and it was so intense, you don’t have any choice but to focus. It was easy to focus on basketball.” Dawkins welcomed a step back toward normalcy, as did his teammates. The Blue Devils actually looked even better than normal, something they hope to continue when they face No. 15 Gonzaga on Saturday at Madison Square Garden. “I was pleased coming off this break with the enthusiasm and some of the sharpness that we had offensively,” Krzyzewski said. “In the time that we have had to practice, we’ve been working on a little bit more offense than defense to get in a better flow. “I thought we had that.”

Ledford guard Steven Fuquay takes a peek under the arm of West Davidson’s Michael Baynard while driving towards the baseline Tuesday evening in Wallburg.

HAPPY From page 7 as Ledford established itself in the post, and did all of its scoring inside the 3-point line. West took its only lead at 21, then held on for their lives getting blitzed 11-0 over a three minute span. Nathan Parks completed a three-point play to put LHS up 17-7 after one. Ledford continued to lead by 10 with 1:34 to play in the second quarter, and would lead by 14 at intermission as Dylan Smith scored a pair of buckets and Daniel Lawson tallied two on a putback. Everything seemed to still be running smoothly as a 6-0 run midway

BRIEFS From page 9 class Dec. 19 at the Fairgrove Fire Department. The class runs from 8

through the third kept the Panthers up by a 4125 score with Will Essick manning the paint scoring 10 of his 16 points on the night. The Ledford players must have felt that was all they had to do. West denied the Panthers a chance to coast home, putting forth a valiant effort that would ultimately come up seven points short. “We have to be ready to play every night,” said Dalton. “We are good enough to beat anybody we play, but we are also capable of getting beat on any night and we have to understand that.” Smith added 13 points for the Panthers who will host Trinity tonight in a nonconference tilt.

DCCC Practical Nurse Pinning Ceremony set for today TIMES STAFF REPORT

The pinning ceremony for Davidson County Community College’s 2009 Practical Nurse Education class will take place Thursday, December 17, at 7:30 p.m. in the DCCC Conference Center on the Davidson Campus. The DCCC Practical Nurse Education program is the only one in North Carolina that is offered online, and this is the second DCCC graduating class. Course content is offered online via email and the Internet with students attending two required labs during the evenings on the Davie Campus of DCCC in Mocksville. Students complete their clinical rotations on the weekends. The program prepares students for the national exam that qualifies them to be Licensed Practical Nurses or LPNs. The three-semester course of study is taught by Jessica Stevens, RN, MSN. Clinical rotations take place at Autumn Care of Mocksville, Davie County Hospital, Davidson Medical Ministries, Lexington Memorial Hospital, Medical Associates of Davie, Milling Manor Group Home, and Piedmont Crossing Nursing Center. The Practical Nurse Education Class of 2009 includes 19 practical nurse candidates. They are Erica Albright, Miranda Barneycastle, Roxanne Beck, Patsy Burns, April Creasey, Kelly Daehler, Ronald Gibson, Christina Hill, Christa Johnston, Herman Lawson III, Cassandra Loman, Holly Medeiros, Kitty Mishak, Jackie Surratt, Lisa Trivette, Ira Tysinger, Amy Wallace, Felicia Walls, and Courtney Wil-

lard. Laura Koontz and Christy Lawrence, members of the 2010 practical nurse education class, are student marshals who will assist with the pinning ceremony. The pins signify a transition from student to graduate and are worn on the nurse’s uniform. The pin is unique to DCCC and is designed in the shape of a Maltese Cross, a symbol associated with a medieval religious order committed to providing care for the sick and injured. Also on the pin is a lamp that honors Florence Nightingale, who carried such a lamp through the darkness as she searched for the wounded on the Crimean War battlefields. Information and intent forms for those interested in applying for the spring 2011 class of Practical Nurse Education will be available in the DCCC Admissions office beginning Monday, February 1, 2010.
