HIGH POINT – Susan Teague plans to bring back her old tradition of buying a new dress for Easter each year. “It’s the first time I’ve bought a new dress (for Easter) in several years,” said Teague, of WinstonSalem, who shopped at Belk in Oak Hollow Mall Friday. “It’s been a while. I think I’ve waited long enough.” Arriving about a week SONNY HEDGECOCK | HPE Cindy Watson works on an Easter display at the Shady earlier than last year, Easter is expected to give Ladies shop in Archdale.

Total spending on the holiday is expected to reach $13.03 billion. Easter baskets filled with pink and yellow marshmallow bunnies also might see a boost this year as the average person is expected to spend $17.29 on candy, compared to $16.55 last year.

HIGH POINT – David Garner, owner of WENO Power Equipment, credits the majority of the sales he’s seen this week to good Samaritans who are helping High Point residents affected by a tornado that touched down in the city last Sunday. “A lot of volunteers have come in needing new chains (for chain saws) or supplies,” said Garner, owner of the company. “Most of them have been purchasing new chains because that is the quickest way to get out there and help people instead of waiting for a chain saw to be sharpened.” Garner said Friday he had sold about 100 new chains and had sharpened dozens more since the storm came through, damaging hundreds of homes in the city. The chain saws mostly are used to clear de-

bris and trees from yards, he said. Generators also were a popular item at WENO during the week for homeowners who were left without power. It’s an unfortunate situation that has triggered a sales uptick for some companies in the city, causing them to work overtime to handle the demand. “It’s generated a lot of sales for us,” he said. “It’s been hard to keep up. We’re trying to get supplies to these volunteers as fast as we can.” Davis Tree Service in High Point received numerous phone calls the morning after the storm, prompting the company to clear its scheduled appointments for the week and focus on cleaning the yards of the tornado victims, particularly in the Blairwood Street area. “We were working 12hour shifts every day earlier this week,” owner Tim

Davis said. “I’ve seen about 20 other different tree services all over the place.” In some instances, when a tree fell across two different property lines, Davis said his company removed half of the tree while another tree service hired by the neighboring property

owner removed the other half. The positive aspects that Davis believe are emerging out of what could have been a fatal situation are that business is booming and clean-up efforts are well under way. “Everything has been so

slow with the economy,” he said. “When the opportunity showed up to work, we jumped on board quickly. We’re about 90 percent done with our efforts in the Blairwood neighborhood.” | 888-3617

Grant to boost science learning ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORT

HIGH POINT – Three schools will benefit from a $2.8 million, five-year National Science Foundation grant aimed at boosting science studies and promoting interest in science careers. Graduate students from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro will work with students and teachers at Montlieu Math and Science Academy, Welborn Academy of Science and Technology and T.W. Andrews High to investigate the health, biological and socioeconomic effects of changing land use pat-

terns in the region. Students will learn about a variety of careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics while focusing on the research projects. The program will involve eight to 10 teachers initially, but could grow to include as many as 30. For Welborn Principal Lori Bolds, the project offers another learning opportunity. District officials are working to tie the schools together with science themes. “We are excited to work with UNC-G on this initiative,” Bolds said. “Having a graduate student in the classroom will help our

teachers differentiate instruction, as we know not all students learn at the same pace or in the same way.” The program will pay stipends and $10,000 toward tuition for nine graduate students each year, who will work with several hundred High Point students. “With this grant, the graduate students will be bringing real life research into our classrooms,” said Debbie Kraszeski, science curriculum specialist for Guilford County Schools. “Together, we will be able to integrate the research with the North Carolina Standard Course of Study, making


learning relevant for students.” The project is one of 23 proposals funded by the National Science Foundation in 2009. “A strong foundation in science and math is critical for success in today’s knowledge-based global economy,” said UNCG Chancellor Linda P. Brady. “The graduate fellows in K-12 Education Program is an excellent example of the efforts under way at UNCG to ensure that students and teachers in our local communities are provided with the skills and hands-on experiences needed to meet the challenges of the 21st century.”

Burglary suspect dies after jumping into river eluding police MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE


Celgard Vice President of Operations Bryan Moorhead (left) leads President Barack Obama on a tour of the battery-parts makers facility in Charlotte on Friday.

Obama welcomes jobs report as rare good news CHARLOTTE (AP) – President Barack Obama on Friday hailed a new government report showing the most jobs created in nearly three years. “We are beginning to turn the corner,” he told employees of a manufacturing plant that received government stimulus money. Steps taken by the government “have broken this slide and are helping us to climb out of this recession,” Obama said several hours after the Labor Department reported that businesses added 162,000 jobs to their payrolls in March. Even so, the Labor Department report was a mixed one. The overall unemployment rate re-

mained unchanged at 9.7 percent, where it has been stuck since January. And 48,000 of the new workers filled temporary government-created Census Bureau positions. Some 8.4 million jobs have evaporated since the recession began in December 2007. “That’s a staggering sum,” the president acknowledged, saying, “we’re still going through a hard time.” But he chose to emphasize the job-creation component of the report. “I’ve often had to report bad news during the course of this year, as the recession wreaked havoc on people’s lives. But today is an encouraging day. We learned that the

economy actually produced a substantial number of jobs instead of losing a substantial number of jobs,” he said. He spoke at a Celgard LLC factory, which received a $49 million grant from the U.S. Energy Department last August. The company makes high-tech battery components, including membranes used in advanced lithium batteries The president said the grant was creating nearly 300 direct jobs for the company and more than 1,000 jobs for its contractors and suppliers. He also pledged that a new emphasis on oil and gas drilling will not undercut alternative energy work.


Taking questions from the audience, Obama was asked whether his decision earlier in the week to open the door to offshore oil and gas drilling would hurt development of alternative energy sources. He said it wouldn’t, and that there was room for both. “We can’t drill our way out of this problem,” he said. Obama said a top priority remains improving energy efficiency and promoting clean energy. But during the transition, he said, the nation needs to find ways to use traditional energy sources in the “most efficient and most environmentally friendly ways.”

Tea parties protest presidential visit CHARLOTTE(AP) – While President Barack Obama touted green-energy jobs and the overhaul of America’s health care system, tea party groups upset with his policies protested his visit Friday to a North Carolina factory that makes rechargeable batteries. Protesters holding anti-Obama signs lined a busy street leading the Celgard LLC factory, which received a $49 million grant from the U.S. Energy Department last August. Among other things, the plant manufactures membranes used mainly in lithium

wrong. He didn’t listen to the people.” His friend, Dr. James McGukin, agreed. “It’s amazing what was done behind closed doors,” said McGukin, 52, a cardiologist. “I’m telling you that many doctors are going to quit rather than deal with a socialist health care system. The changes are bad for doctors. Bad for the American people. This is socialism. Obama is not a leader, he’s a dictator.” Obama toured the Celgard plant to promote green energy jobs. During his visit, he answered questions from factory workers.

NEW BERN – A teenage burglary suspect died after jumping into the Trent River early Tuesday morning while trying to run from New Bern police. Police said Johnny Watson McDaniels Jr., 17, fled after officers found him and three other persons inside a boat docked at the New Bern Grand Marina about 1 a.m. Police said after McDaniels jumped off the dock into the water, he yelled that he was unable to swim and officers threw flotation devices to him. A city officer jumped into the river in an unsuccessful rescue attempt before McDaniels went under.

Peggy Hooper of Archdale said her kids will continue to get the traditional Easter basket they’ve gotten every year since they were kids. “I love to buy my kids, even though they’re grown now, an Easter basket,” said Hooper, who also shopped at the mall on Friday. “I buy all of the candy and that kind of stuff.” Hooper’s spending habits haven’t changed over the years when it comes to spending money on the holiday even amid a recession, she said. “I’ve been lucky and haven’t ever had to cut back,” she said. “I’ve

kept my job. I’ve already got my new dress for church on Sunday.” The economy did affect Teague’s spending habits, but she said she learned to save her money so she could spend it on an Easter meal or other holiday items. “A little pinch here and a little pinch there is enough to do something,” she said. “It’s been at least two years since I’ve bought that new dress.” Buying new dress clothes for Easter Sunday also is a tradition that she’ll probably never outgrow, she added. “I don’t think we ever get too old for Easter dresses.”


Official hopping mad over cop in bunny suit GLENDALE, Calif. (AP) – Glendale police who used a bunny costume to decoy bad drivers at crosswalks have abandoned the outfit after it made a city councilman hopping mad. An officer wore the Easter outfit on Wednesday

His body was recovered just after 9 a.m. Tuesday by the Sidney Dive Team of Beaufort County. Police said McDaniels had separate court appearances scheduled Tuesday and Wednesday for a March 16 arrest for vehicle burglary and a Dec. 23 charge of larceny and common law robbery. Three other suspects from New Bern, including a juvenile, were taken into custody at the scene. Marcus De’vonte Sequan Davis, 17, of 2904 Magnolia Drive, and Dahriek Derek Bradley, 17, of 1410 Devers Circle, were being held in lieu of $100,000 bail on charges of breaking and entering, resisting arrest, and obstruction and delay of a public officer.

5 gunmen killed in shootout with Mexican soldiers



Subway bomber was 17-year-old widow MOSCOW – The image is striking: a sultry teenager, partly veiled, in the embrace of a bearded man – both grasping handguns. The photo appeared Friday in a leading Russian newspaper, which reported that the teen was one of the two female suicide bombers who struck Moscow’s subway. The paper indicated that she may have been out to avenge her husband, an Islamic militant killed by Russian forces.

Guyana cops probe teen’s death after exorcism CANAL NUMBER TWO, Guyana – A 15-year-old girl has died after neighbors and a local pastor tried to treat her convulsions with an exorcism at a church, and Guyanese police said Friday they are investigating. Sangeeta Persaud began to convulse Sunday as she drank tea for breakfast at her grandmother’s home. Chaitranie Ramotar said she became worried and called the girl’s mother, who brought the pastor to the house.

Battle in Somalia leaves 20 dead MOGADISHU, Somalia – At least 20 people were killed Friday after an intense battle between government forces and Islamic insurgents in the Somali capital, medical officials said. Friday’s fighting follows a lull of about two weeks, since scores of civilians were killed in two days of violence in the capital. Military spokesman Col. Ibrahim Kalmoy said the fighting started when insurgents attacked government soldiers.

Hamas signals it wants to keep Gaza quiet GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip – Gaza’s Hamas rulers indicated Friday they were trying to keep attacks on Israel in check, in an apparent attempt to keep a recent spate of violence from spiraling into open conflict. Hamas made this known just hours after Israeli aircraft pounded multiple targets in the territory in response to the latest rocket attack on southern Israel. Three Palestinian children were wounded in one of the Israeli airstrikes.


Supporters of anti-American radical cleric Muqtada al-Sadr cast their votes in Baghdad, Iraq, Friday. Supporters are turning up for a self-styled referendum on the nation’s next prime minister.

Iraq Shiites’ divide good news for Allawi BAGHDAD (AP) – When the coalition led by Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri alMaliki narrowly lost at the polls, he raised the prospect that he could pull ahead by gaining the support of other Shiite-dominated alliances. Since then the largest of those groups have been reaching out – but not to him. Al-Maliki’s secular challenger, Ayad Allawi, gained

a significant advantage when he won the unexpected support of a major Iranian-linked Shiite party. That came after anti-American Shiite cleric Muqtada alSadr made a move widely seen as ominous for al-Maliki: asking his followers to decide which candidate his movement should support in a two-day, unofficial referendum that began Friday.

Those developments may be only the beginning of a flurry of dealmaking that will determine the leader of Iraq’s new government, but they highlight al-Maliki’s struggles to overcome his personal unpopularity among rival Shiite leaders.

sive win, which left them scrambling to get enough parliamentary support to form a government. Allawi’s cross-sectarian bloc tapped into heavy Sunni support to come in just two seats ahead of al-Maliki’s mainly Shiite list, 91-89; 163 seats are needed to rule.

MEXICO CITY (AP) – Five gunmen died in a shootout with soldiers in the border city of Reynosa early Friday, the latest of a series of clashes between troops and alleged drug traffickers in northeastern Mexico, authorities said.

Assailants on Tuesday set up roadblocks near army garrisons and opened fire on checkpoints in several cities of the northeastern states of Tamaulipas and Nuevo Leon, setting off shootouts that killed 18 attackers and wounded one soldier.

OUR VIEW: Easter story gives Christians bedrock for their faith. TOMORROW

Opinion Page Editor: Vince Wheeler (336) 888-3517


It was a democratic election, not a takeover Bill Michal’s letter to Your View on March 25 carried the headline “We must stand up to the government takeover”... Really? ... Must we? First of all, what “takeover”? In November of 2008, our country held elections like it does every two years. In this particular election a majority of Americans voted for change. They elected a Democrat as president and gave the Democrats a decisive majority in both houses of Congress. This was no “takeover.” In fact, it was the opposite of a takeover – it was a free democratic election. I understand that the people on the Right didn’t like the results of the 2008 elections, but to call it a “takeover” is laughable. Here’s an idea for those people – nominate better candidates next time. Apparently Michal is so upset by the fact that “his” party didn’t win in ’08 that he wants to scrap our form of government. Michal wrote: “About 550 individuals are now controlling the lives of 300 million of us.” He’s right, they are. It’s called a representative democracy and it has worked for us for over 230 years. I didn’t hear Michal or the Tea Party and GOOOH crowd complaining about our representative form of government when “their” candidates were in control of Washington. Of course, Michal included the obligatory cries of socialism, or to paraphrase Chicken Little: “The socialists are coming! The socialists are coming!” Just for the record, the sky was not falling and President Obama is not a socialist. To claim he is a socialist is silly. It shows a lack of knowledge of what socialism is and an ignorance in regard to the definition of the word. My advice, invest in a dictionary ... and nominate better candidates next time. SCOTT STOVER High Point

To claim Obama is a socialist ... shows a lack of knowledge of what socialism is.

God expects us to live by his Bible Regarding Chris F. Elkins, “Writers misuse Bible to condemn gays” Feb. 26, I will respond by saying it’s not to condemn but

to be several hundred billion dollars a year. Now lets just say our national debt is somewhere around $12 trillion dollars and there are around 290 million people living in the United States. It would mean that every man, woman and child would have to pay $41, 379. For a family of four, that would be $165, 517. Let’s not forget the interest due on said national debt. The real scare is that the country holding the majority of our national debt is the same country that now has our textile and furniture manufacturing industries – China. LARRY D. BURNS High Point

Re-elect Davis to Superior Court in Guilford to help them to open their eyes and use the God-given common sense that homosexuality is an abomination to God’s word. All the big words, college degrees, etc., or any way you twist the Bible will not correct an abomination. Only repentance. The real ignorance lies in not obeying God’s word. The Bible never changes except to those who refuse to believe in it. Let’s take Soddom and Gomorrah. Why did God destroy these cities? I imagine there were lots of cities at that time that was involved in sin. God specifically destroyed these two because of homosexuality out of them all. Because that’s what they were plagued with. The fear of God is the beginning of knowledge is what I believe in and God has blessed me time after time since I accepted him. He wrote the Bible through his elect and makes it plain he expects us to live by it. DAVE R. CECIL Trinity

Khrushchev may well have been correct In Thomas Sowell’s column of the March 20 edition of The High Point Enterprise with the headline “Dismantling America: We’re nearing the point of no return,” I wish to comment. In the 1950s, Premier Nikita Khrushchev of the Soviet Union made a public comment to the free world, “Whether you like it or not, history is on our side, we will bury you.” One has to look no further than Washington, D.C., USA, to realize

that Khrushchev was possibly right and the burial will come from within. I might add that Thomas Sowell’s columns, to me, always have more varied substance than those of Leonard Pitts. ARCHIE (A.C.) CRAVER Oak Island

Who holds our debt and our manufacturing? If on the day you were born, say January first of this year, someone said they would give you one dollar for every second you lived; how long would it take you to have a billion dollars? I recently asked this question and got answers ranging from a few days, a few weeks, a couple of months, to a very few years. The correct answer is 31 years, 251 days, 1 hour, 46 minutes, and 40 seconds. Do the math and don’t forget about leap years. You have to remember that a billion is one thousand million. Our government no longer thinks of money in millions but billions and now trillions. A trillion is one thousand billion. Using the same analogy as above, if our government printed a thousand dollars every second, it would take the same amount of time to reach a trillion. Now multiply that time frame by how many trillion our current national debt happens to be (and increasing each and every day) and if you aren’t scared to death, something is dreadfully wrong with your way of thinking. That number and time frame doesn’t include the interest on said national debt, which happens

I am delighted that Judge Lindsay Davis is seeking re-election so that he may continue to serve us as a Superior Court judge in Guilford County, an office that he has honorably held for the last nine years. Davis was born and raised in Greensboro, where he graduated from Page High School. He received his undergraduate degree from Davidson College and his law degree from UNCChapel Hill. He then returned to Greensboro to practice law from 1971 until 2001, when he became a Superior Court judge. Davis is mutually committed to his family, our community and the law. He is a loving husband, father and grandfather. He is an alumnus of Leadership Greensboro, a volunteer and medal presenter for the Special Olympics and a member of Holy Trinity Episcopal Church. As an attorney he concentrated his practice in complex civil litigation. As a judge, he has served on the North Carolina Pattern Jury Instructions Committee since 2004, and he has presided over hundreds of criminal and civil trials. We are fortunate to have such an able jurist. JEFFERY M. DAVIS Greensboro

At Easter, the focus is on rebirth, resurrection S pring is such a magical time. The world around us is waking up from its wintry slumber, giving us the buds and blooms of plants and trees with their heavenly scents and splendorous colors. We hear the return of melodious birdsong and observe the manic playfulness of squirrels chasing each other up and down and around trees as other animals scurry about engaging in the activities of their secret realms. It is the rebirth of light, warmth and wonder; something that is truly a joy to behold. It’s like a living breathing symphony for all of the senses, a gift to the entire world born of the glory of Mother Nature herself. I was looking out a window into my backyard, and was pleasantly surprised to see sitting there nibbling on the leaves of a bush, a bunny. I’ve seen this bunny before, but it has been several months since then, and I had thought it had moved on to some other property down the road.

An independent newspaper

So I was immediately warmed just by the sight of it being there again. It amazed me to discover how such a small and unexpected thing as seeOPINION ing a bunny going about its business Robert could bring me such Healy a sense of pure hap■■■ piness. Every once in a while, a gold finch flutters by my place for a brief visit, and I found the bird’s effect is quite like the bunny’s: a fascinating joy, a moment of peace and wonder just comes over me, suddenly making everything seem quite perfect in the world. With some of the terrible and heartbreaking things that have been reported in the news over the last week, I believe it’s these little moments of bliss that keeps me from being completely overwhelmed by pessimism. I’m sure others have felt these moments as well, and have

known the same peace because of them. Watching the bunny in my backyard immediately reminded me that Easter is this Sunday, a holiday centered upon the same idea of the rebirth of light, warmth and wonder. Easter is an interesting holiday, with its symbols of the older Pagan world mixing with symbols of the newer Christian world, as images of the Easter Bunny and Easter eggs (representing fertility and rebirth) are displayed alongside images of Christ on the cross (representing resurrection and new life). It is not unlike “the Myth of the Eternal Return,” as Mircea Eliade put it years ago in his book that carries this very term as its title. I love the story that is basis of the Easter Bunny: Eostre (also referred to as Ostara), goddess of spring, fertility and rebirth, is said to have had a spectacularly beautiful bird as a companion. This heavenly bird, a friend whom the goddess dearly loved,


had been with her for a very long time, and had become quite old. She had reached the time when she would soon die. Eostre, with much love in her heart, gave her friend new life by transforming her from a beautiful bird into a magnificent hare. The transformation, however, was not entirely complete, as one aspect of the hare’s former life as a bird remained. The hare was able to lay brilliantly colored eggs for her dear friend, the goddess Eostre. It is from this myth, being handed down from generation to generation, that we have today what we call the Easter Bunny and the Easter eggs we love to color, and it is from the goddess Eostre that we get the name of the holiday of Easter itself. May your Easter be blessed with joy and peace. ROBERT HEALY is a veteran of the U.S. Army and graduate of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. He lives in High Point.

The ability to stick to a task or project until completion is a valuable trait in a world Ecclesiastes 3: 1-2 where many tasks are difficult and don’t go smoothly the first time around. Thomas Edison is said to have tried literally thousands of materials for the filament of the electric light bulb before hitting on carbonized cotton thread as the proper material. How These things I have spoken unto much longer would humans you, that in me ye might have have toiled in darkness had peace. In the world ye shall have it not been for his dogged tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. persistence? Indeed, it could be argued that civilization would not John 16:33 be possible without this virtue. Perseverance is undoubtedly a useful virtue, but we must be careful that we don’t fall into perseveration, the knee-jerk repetition of a particular response, even when that response is not working. So, we should be smart in our persistence and keep at it, but don’t continue “beating our head against the wall” when our approach is not working. We should be willing to modify our approach and think about what is required to solve our problem. And remember that in some areas of life, such as working with people, patience and persistence are especially called for. Recall that when Jesus was asked how many times we should forgive our brother who has sinned against us, He is effectively saying that we should never stop forgiving.

Then Peter came up and said to him, “Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times?” Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you seven times, but seventy times seven.” R.S.V. Matthew 18:21-22 532580

Hatred Stirs Up Dissension, but Love Covers All Wrongs. Proverbs 10:12

Yesterday’s Bible question: What religious leaders consulted that they might take Jesus by subtilty, and kill him? Answer to yesterday’s question: “Then assembled together the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders of the people, unto the palace of the high priest, who was called Caiaphas,” (Matthew 26:3) Today’s Bible question: What explanation did Jesus give His disciples as to why the woman poured a precious ointment on His head?

The history of Jerusalem

Fundraiser charged in Catholic school ruse BOSTON (AP) – For the Venerini Sisters, it seemed like the answer to their prayers: An anonymous donor, lined up by a professional fundraiser, willing to give at least $3 million to finance an expansion of a private school run by the order of Roman Catholic nuns. The would-be benefactor, known only by his first name of Arthur, chatted amiably on the telephone with school administrators. The nuns hired a general contractor and begin construction on the project at the Venerini Academy in Worcester. The work would stop months later when it become clear there was no money – and no Arthur. Michael Hlady, of Greenville, R.I., was arrested.

In 539 BC, STUDYING Cyrus, THE CHURCH the Persian King, defeated Mark the BabyloNickens nians, and â– â– â–  declared that Jews who had been taken captive by the Babylonians could return to Jerusalem. Many Jews returned and rebuilt the Temple. In 332 BC, Alexander the Great defeated the Persians and gained control of Jerusalem. Upon his death in 323 BC, Egyptians gained Jerusalem. In 198, Jerusalem switched over to the Syrian Seleucids. Around 169 BC, the Seleucid King, Antiochus IV, sought to destroy the Jewish faith and desecrated the Temple. The Jews revolted and re-established the Jewish kingdom with Jerusalem as its capital. The Jews were able to maintain control of Jerusalem until 63 BC when the Roman General Pom-

The Romans recaptured Jerusalem in AD 70 and destroyed the Temple (which has not been rebuilt). The Jews revolted again in AD 132 and regained Jerusalem and their kingdom. The Romans recaptured Jerusalem in AD 135 and forced the Jews to leave the city. Eventually Jews are allowed to return. In 614, the Persians gained control of Jerusalem. In 629 the Byzantines captured Jerusalem. In 638 (six years after Muhammad’s death), the Muslim leader Omar entered Jerusalem, and the city became Muslim. In 1099, the Christian Crusaders from Europe captured Jerusalem. In 1187, the Muslim general Saladin captured Jerusalem. In 1192, Richard the Lion-Hearted attempted to capture Jerusalem, but failed.

pare the discomfort being experienced by the church leadership in the sex abuse scandal to the violence that culminated in the Holocaust. The Vatican has been on the defensive in recent days, saying the church has been singled out and collectively stereotyped . Invoking any comparison with anti-Semitism was particularly sensitive on Good Friday, itself a delicate day in a decades-long effort by Jews and Catholics to overcome a legacy of mistrust. There was a long-held Catholic belief that Jews were collectively responsible for executing Christ, and a landmark achievement of the Second Vatican Council of the 1960s was a declaration stating the Jews should not be blamed for the crucifixion.

On May 14, 1948, Israel became a nation. On May 14, 1948 (the same day), the surrounding Muslim nations attacked Israel; Israel gained additional territory. In April 1949, Israel and Transjordan agreed to divide Jerusalem. Jerusalem (or part of Jerusalem) became the official capital of Israel on Dec 13, 1949. On June 5, 1967, Jordan (former Transjordan) shelled the Jewish part of Jerusalem. On June 7, 1967, the Jews captured the Jordan part of Jerusalem. And the Jews have controlled Jerusalem ever since.

But that only covers Jerusalem for about 30 years: what about the rest of Jerusalemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history? Well, here we go (and this is abbreviated!). The earliest mention of Jerusalem is from the Bible. In Genesis 14:18, the king of Salem (probably Jerusalem) met Abraham; this occurred around 1950 BC.

Around 1000 BC, the Jewish King David attacked a city controlled by the Jebusites and made it his capital, this was Jerusalem (II Samuel 5:6,7). His son, Solomon, built the Temple in Jerusalem.

Sixth district forum



Monday event draws Republican congressional candidates


TRIAD – Voters who plan to cast ballots in the 6th Congressional District Republican Party primary will have a chance to hear from the candidates in one setting Monday. The Moore County Republican Women will host the candidates forum at noon Monday at the Pinehurst Country Club. It may be the first time during

the primary campaign that all six candidates are at one forum, which will include Republican candidates for other races. Each candidate will have a chance to make a short address, and there may be a question-andanswer session if time permits, said Pauli Curl with the Moore County Republican Women. The 6th District seat has been held since the 1984 election by Rep. Howard Coble, the 13-term congressman from Greensboro.

Until this year, Coble hadn’t faced a Republican challenger since his first campaign for the office. But this year five Republican challengers have filed. They are Guilford County Commissioner Billy Yow, furniture showroom manager Cathy Brewer Hinson of High Point, Dr. James Taylor of Pinehurst, businessman Jon Mangin of Stokesdale and Jeff Phillips of Greensboro. The Republican nominee will

take on Democratic challenger Sam Turner of Salisbury in the Nov. 2 general election. The district has the highest concentration of registered Republican voters among the state’s 13 congressional districts. The 6th District covers all of Moore and Randolph counties and parts of Rowan, Davidson, Guilford and Alamance counties. | 888-3528

Two fire departments get federal grants

Poll shows many doubt Obama’s policies are working BY DAVID NIVENS ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER


DAVIDSON COUNTY – Fire departments in Lexington and the Silver Valley community of Davidson County will benefit from the latest round of funding through a federal grant program. The city of Lexington will receive $95,535 and the Silver Valley Volunteer Fire Department will take in $47,646 through the Department of Homeland Security’s Assistance to Firefighters Grants program. Seven North Carolina fire departments will receive a total of $740,222 from the latest set of grants, reports the office of Sen. Kay Hagan. This year, grants have totaled more than $11.1 million for 138 fire departments in North Carolina, including other fire departments in the Piedmont, Hagan’s office indicates. The grant funds can be used to pay for training, equipment, wellness and fitness and health and safety modifications to stations and facilities.

HIGH POINT – Many North Carolinians say President Obama has not handled the economy well despite the claims he made Friday in Charlotte that the economy is turning up after a deep recession. The president hailed a new government report showing stronger job growth and credited his policies with helping businesses rebuild. But results of a High Point University poll show 57 percent of North Carolinians disapprove of how President Obama is handling the economy, compared to 36 percent approving his actions. And 56 percent believe that economic conditions in North Carolina are getting worse while 59 percent believe that the government has not done enough to address the economic crisis. Obama’s appearance at Celgard in Charlotte, a firm that

Thirty-eight percent supported the legislation. In addition, 55 percent of those surveyed disapprove of the way Obama has handled health care and 38 percent approve. The survey of 578 residents was conducted over a two-week period in March. The margin of


sampling error is plus or minus 4.1 percentage points. Here are some other survey results: • Terrorism: Fifty percent of North Carolinians approve of Obama’s handling of the terrorism threat, 39 percent disapprove. While 53 percent believe the U.S. government is doing at least fairly well in reducing the threat of terrorism, a near majority of 47 percent say further attacks on the U.S. are very likely. • Education: A 52-percent majority of North Carolinians approve of how Obama is handling education, compared to 32 percent who disapprove. But just 47 percent approve of the national government developing standards for all public schools while 45 percent disapprove. A 64-percent majority rejects paying teachers based on their students’ standardized test scores, while 29 percent approve. | 888-3626

Judge: BB&T must rehire whistleblower of NC scam RALEIGH – BB&T Corp. must rehire a former company investigator who says she was fired after exposing a $100 million North Carolina development scam, an administrative law judge said in a ruling released Friday. Judge Jeffrey Tureck said in his decision that Amy Stroupe should be reinstated to her position with back pay because of protection afforded by whistleblower laws. Stroupe said that she hopes to return to the job. “I feel so happy and vindicated,” she said. “This has been an almost three-year ordeal. It’s been tough. I feel so happy that the judge was able to see the truth in all this.” Cynthia Williams, a BB&T spokeswoman, said the company believes the ruling is erroneous and does not accurately reflect what occurred. “BB&T adamantly denies doing anything wrong and will be filing an appeal in this matter,” she said. Stroupe says she contacted the FBI in 2007 about a development scam in the mountains of North Carolina because the Winston-Salem-based bank refused to take action on it. Investigators now say the Village of Penland development was a Ponzi scheme, and Tureck said in his ruling that the bank was “aiding” the fraud by making loans to investors in the community. Five people have pleaded guilty to federal criminal charges in connection with the case. The project began to unravel when a BB&T official in the Shelby office became suspicious that an employee who recently transferred to the branch was making too many Penland loans. He asked Stroupe to look into it. Family-owned with a tradition of trust, integrity and helpful service ... Since 1948

John Forsythe dies at 92 LOS ANGELES (AP) – John Forsythe, the handsome, smooth-voiced actor who made his fortune as the scheming oil tycoon in TV’s “Dynasty” and the voice of the leader of “Charlie’s Angels,” has died after a yearlong battle with cancer. He was 92. Forsythe died late Thursday at his home in Santa Ynez from complications of pneumonia, publicist Harlan Boll said Friday. “He died as he lived his life, with dignity and grace,” daughter Brooke Forsythe said. Despite his distinguished work in theater and films, Forsythe’s

Feds: Worker planned malicious code for ATMs RALEIGH (AP) – A Bank of America Corp. employee plotted to deploy malicious computer code within the company’s systems so that ATM machines would dispense cash without any record of a transaction, federal prosecutors allege in court documents. Rodney Reed Caverly was tasked with maintaining and designing computer systems at the bank, including computers that conducted ATM transactions. Prosecutors in the western district of North Carolina said he to use computer code within the company’s protected computers so that the ATMs would make fraudulent disbursements. Caverly was able to obtain more than $5,000 during a seven-month period in 2009, prosecutors allege. The details of Caverly’s case were filed on Thursday in a “bill of information” document, which typically signals that a plea deal is forthcoming. An attorney for Caverly, Christopher Fialko, declined to comment. Federal prosecutors didn’t return a phone call. Shirley Norton, a spokeswoman with Bank of America, said the bank officials detected the problem with their internal controls and turned the case over to authorities.

greatest fame came from his role as Blake Carrington in producer Aaron Spelling’s 1981-89 primetime soap opera “Dynasty.” Forsythe lent dignity to the tale of murder, deceit, adultery and high finance, which often brought Carrington into conflict with his flashy, vengeful former wife, Alexis Colby, played to the hilt by Joan Collins. “He was one of the last of the true gentlemen of the acting profession,” Collins said in a statement. “I enjoyed our nine years of feuding, fussing and fighting as the Carringtons.”

Some flowers can repel insects I

t will soon be mosquito season in the Triad. For decades the only really effective mosquito repellent has been DEET which has a synthetic chemical base. Each year, more research is being done to explore plants that insects don’t like to chew because that usually means there may be some internal plant chemicals that resist or deter the insect. Some scented plants like eucalyptus, lemongrass and scented leaf geraniums have often been used in various over the counter concoctions and some work to some degree. A geranium plant was recently developed by implanting genes of one species into another to create the “mosquito plant,” a scented Pelargonium species with introduced genes which code for the production of oil of citronella.

The citronella fragrance is released when the leaves are rubbed or crushed. Commercially, oil of citronella ECOLOGY is extracted from the tropical Gwyn grass, CymboRiddick pogon nardus, ■■■ called citronella grass. The “mosquito geranium” is advertised as a natural mosquito repellant, but research has not been conducted to prove the validity of this claim. Citronella is an oil that I burn in torches around my deck to repel mosquitoes and other bugs and always seems to work quite well. You can buy it in gallon jugs at many stores. Folks that like to experiment

at home have learned they can buy geranium oil which is taken from the flower of the same name, and is part of a family of natural and effective insect repellents that include lemongrass and citronella oils. By combining and adding geranium oil with a variety of products, they make an easy-to-use insect repellent that may work against most types of mosquitoes, fleas and flying insects. None of these homemade repellents should be used on small children. They make the repellent by combining 1 part pure geranium oil with 10 parts of pure soybean oil which can be very oily. To make it less oily, the recipe says to dilute the geranium solution in rubbing alcohol or witch hazel, using the same 10 to 1 ratio. Adding lemon eucalyptus oil in particular is reported to enhance

the solution by providing 5 to 6 hours of protection against insect bites. Additional research has found that geraniums may hold the key to controlling the devastating Japanese beetle, which feeds on nearly 300 plant species and costs the ornamental plant industry $450 million in damage each year, according to scientists with the Agricultural Research Service (ARS). According to the ARS, the beetle, Popillia japonica Newman, can feast on a wide variety of plants, including ornamentals, soybean, maize, fruits and vegetables. Like me you can probably attest to the fact they will eat anything in their path that looks like a plant. But within 30 minutes of consuming geranium petals, the beetle rolls over on its back, its legs and antennae

slowly twitch, and it remains paralyzed for several hours. The beetles typically recover within 24 hours when paralyzed under laboratory conditions, but they often succumb to death under field conditions after predators spot and devour the beetles while they are helpless. So geraniums are proving to be not only beautiful in our pots and landscapes but defenders of their companion plants and their owners ... .us.

Man hesitates to reconcile with girlfriend


ear Abby: I broke up with my girlfriend of almost two years last July because I thought I was going to be getting a job overseas and she would be staying in the States. We have always had a long-distance relationship (me being from New York and she from New Hampshire), and it didn’t look like it would be any different for the next five or so years what with graduate school, etc. I was becoming more and more distant in our relationship because I’d see her only for a weekend every other month or so, and the lack of physical contact left me feeling single but unavailable. It has been many months now, and it turned out I didn’t get the job after all. She’s now living two hours away, and we’re still on good terms. We talk occasionally but never about us. Our families loved each other, and we never had any deal-breaking fights. Part of me wants to see if she wants to give it another shot, but the other half feels almost embarrassed to ask. What would you suggest I do? – Musing in The Empire State

ADVICE Dear Abby ■■■

Dear Musing: Sitting around “musing” won’t solve your problem. So get off the dime and ASK her before someone else steps in and does!

Dear Abby: I have been married a year and a half. My husband works three jobs because he wants material things. We spend very little time together and when we do, it’s sleep and sports. We don’t go out to dinner or movies. I feel like I’m just here so he can get the material things he wants. – Lonesome in Pennsylvania Dear Lonesome: You and your husband are overdue for some serious discussions regarding priorities, goals and values because it appears you are far out of sync. Tell him that while you admire his drive and ambition, successful marriages take work, too. While many people can

hold down two jobs, trying to hold down three is a challenge. A person can’t put forth his best effort if he’s exhausted all the time – and fatigue leads to mistakes and inefficiency. For the sake of your husband’s health, he should rethink what he’s doing. P.S. Speak up now, because if you truly believe you’re just there so he can get the material things he wants, it doesn’t take a crystal ball to see this marriage may not be one of long duration. Dear Abby: Two years ago I met someone who became larger than life to me. I was happier than I ever dreamed, but it wasn’t to be. He was killed six months later in a car accident. His best friend, “Tom,” was driving. I went to visit Tom in the hospital and from then on we became inseparable. At first, it was to soothe each other’s pain of losing someone we both loved, but it grew into something more. I currently live with Tom’s family and work in their business without pay. Essentially, I’m one of

the family. I could not ask for a more loving adoptive family, but I don’t want to be “family.” I lie awake at night thinking about Tom, blush if our hands touch and have to catch my breath when he looks at me. How do I tell the man I love that I have fallen for him when he considers me like a little sister? Is what I’m feeling even appropriate? – Unsure in New York Dear Unsure: I think so. You suffered a devastating loss. Tom and his family have filled the void, so your feelings are understandable. You will never know whether Tom feels the same way about you if you don’t bring up the subject. If you’re afraid to do that, then talk to his mother. She’ll be able to give you some insight – and perhaps some encouragement. But don’t wait much longer, because if he doesn’t feel the same, you need to move out and move on with your life. DEAR ABBY is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at or P.O.

Judge: NC base improperly banned anti-Islam decals


Good Friday procession Angie Reid gets help from her son, Daniel, 7 and daughter, Meghan, 11, carrying a cross during a 1-mile walk through the downtown Hendersonville on Friday. People took turns carrying the cross during the annual event, which commemorates the crucifixion and death of Jesus Christ.

RALEIGH (AP) – Camp Lejeune officials violated the rights of a military veteran who came to his job on base in a vehicle emblazoned with anti-Islamic decals after his son died in a terrorist bombing, a federal judge ruled. Jesse Nieto’s stickers included one that said “ISLAM (equals) TERRORISM” and another with a threat to defecate on the Quran. He also had a decal to commemorate the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole, in which 17 shipmates died including Nieto’s youngest son. “His vehicle is a way to express his mourning and anger,” said Nieto’s attorney, Robert Muise. Nieto has been driving a different vehicle to his on-base job since the summer of 2008, but Muise said he plans to return with his decals next week. He has worked at Lejeune since 1994 and previously served 25 years in the Marine Corps, including two combat tours as an infantryman in Vietnam. U.S. District Judge Malcolm J. Howard said in a ruling posted Wednesday that a Lejeune regulation

targeting inflammatory speech on base was improperly applied to Nieto’s decals and not to pro-Islamic messages that may be just as incendiary. Howard concluded that the application of the rule violated Nieto’s free speech. “While military offi-

‘His vehicle is a way to express his mourning and anger.’ Robert Muise Attorney cials are entitled to great deference in restricting speech to further the military’s needs, they may not do so in a manner that discriminates against a particular point of view,” Howard wrote in his decision. Nieto did not seek monetary damages in his lawsuit. Maj. Nat Fahy, a spokesman for Camp Lejeune, said the ruling doesn’t prevent the base from ensuring order and discipline. He said it was difficult to maintain an acceptable

climate while balancing First Amendment rights. “In the aftermath of this case, we expect to continue to deal with the occasional friction that occurs when ’free speech’ begins to impede good order and discipline,” he said. One of Nieto’s decals showed a picture of the cartoon character Calvin urinating on an illustration of the Islamic prophet Muhammad. Another declared, “WE DIED, THEY REJOICED.” Another said “Disgrace My Countries Flag And I will (defecate) On Your Quran.” A few of the stickers were removed after a traffic court hearing in 2008. He then added another decal with a line striking through the Islamic crescent moon and start, with the words “No Quarter” and “Islamic Terrorist” on it. Nieto was then ordered to remove all of his decals, but he refused. Camp Lejeune’s rules say that vehicles cannot display messages of “extremist, indecent, sexist or racist” nature. Muise said the base was picking and choosing which messages to restrict.

Saturday, April 3, 2010 CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Cobie Smulders, 28; Jennie Garth, 38; Eddie Murphy, 49; Alec Baldwin, 52 HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Get your finances in order this year. Look at your future logically and let go of all that’s been weighing you down. A new attitude will bring about a new you and new beginnings. Don’t get angry about the past, get moving forward and put the past behind you. Your numbers are 3, 13, 21, 27, 33, 36, 49 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Getting together with people who are as aggressive as you are will lead to profits. A challenge will get you moving in spite of some of the setbacks you’ve encountered. Stay within your budget. ★★★★★ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Your day will be nonproductive if you leave room for someone to complain. Taking action will work but discussing a moot point will lead to setbacks and family feuds. Do something without being asked that will please your family. ★★★ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You may be inclined to stretch the truth, especially if someone is trying to outdo you. Instead, stick to your game plan and focus on learning, sharing and caring with the people who mean the most to you. Someone who depends on you can also help you. ★★★ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Be prepared to answer any questions that you are asked with facts, figures and whatever else is required. The sooner you put people’s minds at ease, the easier it will be to follow through with your plans. ★★★ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Get away from workrelated matters and focus more on fun and games. A short trip will lead to activities, events and people who will share valuable information, ideas and alternatives to the way you’ve been planning to proceed with your life. ★★★★★ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You can avoid being strung along by a big talker who is unlikely to honor promises made. Travel in order to have a face-to-face conversation. The rapport that develops will be well worth your time, effort and expense. ★★ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Taking on too much or overindulging in any way will cause you grief both personally and financially. You can expect to experience problems with someone you care about over a money matter. Put your time and effort into fixing up your home. ★★★★ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You may want to change the nature of your business but, before you go down that path, check out the cost. It’s probably better to take what you’ve already got and rework it to fit your new plans. ★★★ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Put your effort into your home and comfort. Do as much of the work yourself as you can. Travel will be costly and will lead to unexpected delays and problems with authority figures. Don’t deviate from the rules. ★★★ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Love is in the stars and you should be planning to do something entertaining either with your current partner or that will allow you to meet someone special. Don’t limit your choices because you are too set in your ways. ★★★ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Rethink your future and strategize about what you want to do, can do and should do. You will get a good response if you put a new resume together. Getting involved in volunteer work will provide you with some added bonuses. ★★★★ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t let your guard down, especially when working with people who are after the same goals you have in mind. You can expect the competition to be fierce and the underhandedness downright dirty. Don’t give away your secrets. Remain calm. ★★





At Christmas I had the pleasure of playing at the Birmingham, Ala., Duplicate Bridge Club. The deals were tough, as witness today’s deal. Against 6NT I led a diamond as West. Declarer could see 11 tricks; the problem was to combine the chances for one more. She ran the diamonds (dummy threw a spade and a heart) and finessed in spades. East won and led a heart. Forced to commit, South took the ace. She led the nine of clubs to the ace, cashed the two high spades, came to the queen of clubs, led a club at the 12th trick ... and put up the king. Down one.

proud to be a member.



You hold: S 2 H A Q 7 6 D A 10 7 4 2 C Q 9 3. You open one diamond, and your partner bids one spade. What do you say?

At the end, South’s percentage play in clubs was dummy’s eight; the fall of East’s ten made this a “restricted choice” position. South might also have finessed in spades early. She could win East’s heart return and run the diamonds. Chances would improve since dummy’s low spade would often be a threat. Like all outstanding clubs, the Birmingham DBC welcomes and nurtures new players. I’m

ANSWER: This problem is awkward, but only a few players would have sought to avoid it by not opening the bidding. A rebid of two diamonds would suggest a longer suit (or at least a better suit), and a bid of two hearts would show more strength. Bid 1NT. If partner has A J 5 4 3, K 9 4 3, 3, 10 4 2, this bid will let you find your 4-4 heart fit. North dealer Both sides vulnerable

ONE STAR: It’s best to avoid conflicts; work behind the scenes or read a good book. Two stars: You can accomplish but don’t rely on others for help. Three stars: If you focus, you will reach your goals. Four stars: You can pretty much do as you please, a good time to start new projects. Five stars: Nothing can stop you now. Go for the gold.

INDIANAPOLIS – West Virginia’s players wear the sentiment on Tshirts: “We Do What We Do.” Duke’s players wear it on their sleeve, right along with their hearts. West Virginia is a blue-collar team from a blue-collar state, a squad that finds itself in the Final Four thanks to defense, rebounding and more defense. Duke has been known for riding



Devil may care: Indianapolis paper apologizes to Krzyzewski. 3C the efforts of basketball blue bloods through the madness of March and into the rare air of April, but this Duke team has advanced this far with guts and grit. When the two teams, both featuring a style that’s low on style points, meet at Lucas Stadium

tonight (8:47 p.m., WFMY, Ch. 2), only the toughest of the tough will emerge with a spot in Monday’s national championship game. Both teams are good and tough, both believed worthy of a No. 1 seed heading into the NCAA Tournament, an honor Duke (33-5) grabbed – presumably just ahead of West Virginia (31-6). Both teams can defend with the best of them, both holding opponents in the low 60-point range on average, and they rank as two of just nine teams nationally that

rebound more than 40 percent of their missed shots. West Virginia coach Bob Huggins has hammered home to his team that it’s the only way the Mountaineers can win, so much so that he had the T-shirts made to give his team a chance to see the words “We Do What We Do” rather than having to hear them all the time. Huggins has helped his alma mater reach the Final Four for the first time since 1959. “We know how we need to play to win,” he said.

Anticipation growing for Hart M

arcy Hart continues practicing and playing in the area, waiting for her first LPGA Tour event of the season. Her golf career is in a pregnant pause of sorts as Hart plots her course during this year’s pregnancy and beyond. “I’ll play this year, I’ll teach on my weeks off and see what the future holds for next year,” Hart said earlier this week on a sunsplashed day at High Point Country Club’s Willow Creek course. “There’s always the option of going back and playing, or I might enjoy just being home. It’s hard to say.” It’s hard to imagine Hart stepping back from the game she’s been around forever. The former Marcy Newton starred at Ledford and the University of North Carolina, winning the 1995 U.S. Girls Junior Championship and the 2000 U.S. Women’s Amateur. Her LPGA career began in 2001, with three impressive years from 2004 to 2006 propelling her to career earnings of more than $732,000 in 172 tournaments around the world in the past decade. After a disappointing campaign in 2008 that saw her make just five cuts in 18 events, Hart regained her Tour status at Qualifying School and played well at the start and end of last year’s campaign. Overall, she was good enough to qualify this year for most full-field events – on a tour that has lost a number of tournaments the past few years. “My number is 151, and in full-field events 144 girls play,” Hart explained. “As long as seven to 10 girls decide not to play, I’m in. In a normal year, I would get into all the full-field events. But since there are so few events and they’re spread out, girls don’t have to take weeks off.” That’s why, in an ironic twist, Hart’s husband is out on Tour right now and she’s not. Rob Hart is caddying for Sarah Lee in California while Marcy waits for the LPGA Tour

to begin its U.S. swing in earnest. “It’s tough because there’s just not a lot of tournaSPORTS ments. I don’t know Steve how many Hanf they say we ■■■ have, but so many of those are limited-field events,” Marcy said. “So if you’re not a top-30 to top50 on last year’s money list, you might play in 15. Rob said it’s probably just going to be a global tour. The years of 20-25 events in the States, that’s probably done for a while. I hope not, but we lost a lot of sponsors who had been around for a long time.” Most years, it wouldn’t be a big deal to wait for the busy stretch this summer. But with Marcy and Rob expecting their first child in September, golf will have to take a back seat for the car seat at some point. Marcy said she should be able to play until sometime during the summer based on what she’s learned from others who have gone through the same experience. “It’s funny. A lot of them say they played better when they were pregnant: Their timing was better, they putted better,” Hart said. “You hear all kinds of stuff. Some girls played up to a month before, some didn’t feel good and didn’t play at all. Everybody’s different.” Hart said she hasn’t been sick “one day – I’m very lucky!” The big ultrasound is scheduled for April 20, and the eager SONNY HEDGECOCK | HPE mom definitely will be Marcy Hart works on her short game at Willow Creek while awaiting a return to the finding out if it’ll be a boy LPGA Tour in a few weeks.

That Duke team arrived in Indy still searching for the first national title in school history. Those Blue Devils were heavy underdogs to defending national champion UNLV in the semifinals.

But Duke shocked the world with an upset of the Runnin’ Rebels, then polished off Kansas two nights later to secure the crown. The Devils enter tonight’s game against the Mountaineers playing the role of slight favorite. Duke is the sole No. 1 seed remaining in a Final Four chock full of fascinating storylines. Michigan State, playing in its sixth Final Four in the last 12 seasons, eyes a second national title during that stretch and a third overall.

Butler and West Virginia, meanwhile, seek their first national titles. The Mountaineers last made the Final Four in 1959, when Jerry West and company came up one point short to Cal in the title game. The Bulldogs have the added edge of being a hometown team wearing the coveted Cinderella tag. It should be a terrific Final Four.





Davidson County Community College guard Justin Glover earned a spot on the National Junior College Athletic Associate Division III All-American team in voting released Friday. The 6-foot-2, 180-pounder from Jordan-Matthews High led the Storm with 19.6 points per game. He helped DCCC finish 29-7 and reach the DIII tourney finale. Glover was one of three freshmen to be picked for the 20-player team, which consisted of five each on a first, second and third team plus five honorable mentions.

HOUSTON OPEN HUMBLE, Texas â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Bryce Molder birdied four of the last seven holes for a 6under 66 and a one-stroke lead in the Houston Open, the final event before the Masters next week at Augusta. Molder had a 9-under 135 total on Redstoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tournament Course. First-round co-leader Cameron Percy (69) and fellow PGA Tour rookie Alex Prugh (66) were tied for second, and Lee Westwood (68), Anthony Kim (69), Joe Ogilvie (67) and Kevin Stadler (70) were 7 under after another windy day. Ernie Els, Fred Couples and Phil Mickelson made the cut, but were far off the pace. Els (74) and Couples (73) were even par, and Mickelson (76) was 1 over. Els is trying to win his third straight start and the 50-year-old Couples is warming up for the Masters after three consecutive wins on the Champions Tour.

INDIANAPOLIS â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Early editions of the Indianapolis Star newspaper Friday put a new â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and arguably inappropriate â&#x20AC;&#x201C; face on the theory that Duke is the most hated program in college basketball. The front page of its sports section initially featured a photo illustration of Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski that made it appear as if someone had taken a pen and added devil horns and a target on his forehead, along with glasses, a mustache and moles. The headline read â&#x20AC;&#x153;Despising Duke.â&#x20AC;? The Star eventually stopped the presses and ran the photo without the digital alterations while changing the headline to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Boo Devils.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I did see that,â&#x20AC;? Krzyzewski said during Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s news conference. â&#x20AC;&#x153;First thing I thought, you know, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;That canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be. How could a newspaper do that?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I thought somebody doodled. Actually, I thought I looked better. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But it was kind of juvenile â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not kind of, it was just juvenile. You know, my seven grandkids didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enjoy looking at it. It was like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not Poppy.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? Dennis Ryerson, editor of the Star, told the Herald Bulletin in Anderson, Ind., that the illustration was removed because it was â&#x20AC;&#x153;completely over the top.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is what it is. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very juvenile,â&#x20AC;? Krzyzewski said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have great kids who go to school, who graduate. If weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be despised or hated by anybody because we go to school and we want to win, you know what, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your problem. Then you have a problem, because weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to go to school and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to try to win. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like it? Keep drawing pictures. Just keep drawing pictures. Try to do them a little bit better than that, though.â&#x20AC;? Despite the widely held sentiment that fans nationwide love to hate Duke, a Harris Poll taken last week had Duke and North Carolina tied as the most popular college basketball teams. In fact, the two schools have occupied the top spots in the poll for


The Friday sports section front page of the Indianapolis Star featured this illustration of Duke menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski. The Star apologized to Duke University after some 30,000 of Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s editions were distributed before the press was stopped and the page redesigned. Jim Lefko, the Starâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s senior editor/sports, said the paper pulled the illustration â&#x20AC;&#x153;when we realized it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t meet our standards.â&#x20AC;? five years running.

Duke freshman Ryan Kelly said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a lot of fans across the country, and also a lot of people who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like us.

Jackson leads Bobcats to overtime win CHARLOTTE (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Stephen Jackson scored 32 points and hit the go-ahead 3pointer with a minute left in overtime to lead the Charlotte Bobcats to an 87-86 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks and further crowd the Eastern Conference playoff race. Jackson won a scoring duel with John Salmons, who had 28 points and whose 3-pointer in the closing second of regulation tied it. The game wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t decided until Charlotteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tyson Chandler batted teammate Raymond Feltonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s miss back to midcourt, where Felton grabbed it as time expired.

Carlos Delfino scored 14 points in his

first game since a scary head injury for Milwaukee. Andrew Bogut added 19 points, 12 rebounds and matched a career high with seven blocks as the Bucks dropped their second tight game in a row. The physical contest that left Salmons with a bandage covering stitches over his left eye and Bobcats owner Michael Jordan screaming at the officials evened the season series 2-2, with Jackson coming up big in the clutch. Dave Hanners guided Charlotte for the final three quarters after Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ejection. Brown seemed to be upset that no foul was called when Bobcats forward Gerald Wallace hit the floor after appearing to get hit in the face by Kurt Thomas on a blind screen early in the second quarter.

Ryan Blaney relaxes after first win BY GREER SMITH ENTERPRISE SPORTS WRITER


Virginia’s new head coach, Mike London, cheers during a recent spring football practice in Charlottesville, Va. Teams across the ACC have donned the helmets and pads in getting a jump on next fall’s preparations.

Tar Heel receivers ready to grow up CHAPEL HILL (AP) – Erik Highsmith remembers the confusion he felt in all those chaotic moments just before the snap. Thrown directly from the high school ranks onto the field for North Carolina, he tried to see through the bluffs from the defense to recognize the coverage. He tried to keep his mind focused on his route or the block he would have to deliver downfield. “I’m a fast learner,” Highsmith admitted, “but I really didn’t know exactly what was going on.” The Tar Heels spent all of last season relying on Highsmith, Greg Little and several other unproven receivers to fight through all that uncertainty. The results were mixed, but now that group is a year older and – coach Butch Davis hopes – a year wiser as they work through spring drills. “Little by little, each one of those kids did some things ... but they’re not the complete players,” Davis said. “That’s the thing we’ve really tried to impress upon (them), that you can’t just go out there with the ball, but you’ve got to play as well without the ball.” If anything, the Tar Heels had to feel OK about the way things went with their receivers last year. They had lost three wideouts to the NFL draft, including first-rounder Hakeem Nicks, and came

into Davis’ third season with Little – who had split time between running back and receiver – as the veteran leader with just 24 career catches. Little, a rising senior, improved as the year went on and became a steady threat. Highsmith and fellow true freshman Jheranie Boyd had their moments, too, while talented youngsters like Dwight Jones and Josh Adams had injuries hamper their development. The challenge now for all of them is to take a clear step forward. That inexperience at receiver, along with trouble on the offensive line, was a key reason why the Tar Heels’ offense struggled with consistency all season and left much of the burden on their stout defense to win games. Now, those at-times overwhelmed kids have a better idea of what’s going on and what it will take to help quarterback T.J. Yates move the football through the air. “Being in this league and playing against the same people and being on the team a second time around, these guys have gained confidence and they understand there’s no need to be worried about what’s going to happen next,” receivers coach Charlie Williams said. “They know. We have a system and the system works, and we’ll go from there.”

Charlotte bowl faces change CHARLOTTE (AP) – Organizers of the Meineke Bowl terminated their title sponsorship agreement effective after this year’s game, which means there will likely be a different name for the event in 2011. The move this week came after the Charlotte bowl couldn’t renegotiate the contract with Driven Brands Inc., parent company of Meineke Car Care Centers, by the March 31 deadline to opt out of the final year of the contract. Bowl officials wanted a more lucrative deal after

moving up in the ACC selection order, which will mean increasing its payout per team from about $1.3 million to more than $1.8 million. Driven Brands took over as title sponsor from Continental Tire in 2005 and has been paying about $1 million a year. Driven Brands CEO Ken Walker called the cancellation a “hurried decision” in a statement. There was no warning that this was even being considered, especially since we just renewed for two more years this past summer.”

Redskins ink UNC’s Parker ASHBURN, Va. (AP) – The Washington Redskins have added yet another veteran running back to the roster, agreeing to terms with Willie Parker for a one-year deal. Parker agreed Friday to a contract that could be worth as much as $3.1 million with incentives. The Redskins already have 28-year-old Clinton Portis returning, and they recently signed 30-

year-old Larry Johnson to a three-year deal. Parker is 29 and has played six seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers, winning two Super Bowl rings. He has three 1,200yard seasons, but ran for only 389 yards last year as a backup. Parker’s agent, Douglas Hendrickson, said the Redskins have told Parker that “it’s an open competition for the starting job.”

HIGH POINT – Ryan Blaney enjoys a sense of relief getting ready for today’s Easter Bunny 150 at Hickory Speedway. At just 16 and early in his second year of Super Late Model racing, the Bishop McGuinness sophomore started to feel some pressure because he failed to cash in on opportunities to win as a rookie on the PASS Super Late Model tour last season. Blaney, son of Cup driver Dave Blaney, lifted the burden when he prevailed in the PASS South season opener on March 13 at Dillon (S.C.) Motor Speedway. “The win took some pressure off of me,” the younger Blaney said. “We could have won a handful of races last year and my experience cost us.” Blaney didn’t exactly struggle as a rookie. In 14 races, he posted four top-five finishes and 12 top-

10s – consistent enough to finish second in the standings to veteran driver Ben Rowe of Maine. He just didn’t know enough about the cars and about race strategy to get into victory lane. “It was a big transition moving up from Legends Cars,” Blaney said. “I didn’t know how hard to run, when to pace myself and when to push. And I’m still learning what to tell the crew to do to the car to make it better as the race goes along.” Also helping the development is a new crew chief named Jamie Roleou, who caught the Blaneys’ attention while helping another driver last year. “He went to a test with us and we ran a lot better so we hired him,” Ryan said. “He has some real advanced ideas about shocks and springs. Our cars are better.” At Dillon, he started eighth as a result of a draw for positions after qualifying and was running third when engine failure took care of the first- and second-place cars af-

ter about 50 laps. Down the stretch, he led handily. “It felt a lot better finally getting that first win because we kept coming close to getting it last year and we never got it,” Ryan said. “This time, we got the car right and the driver right. It felt a ton better.” It feels so good that winning as many races as possible is his main goal for this season. “Winning the championship would be nice if that happens,” Ryan said. “But right now, I want to win and get more exposure.” As for the long term, he claims there is no fast-track timetable for moving up the racing chain into either the NASCAR East or ARCA ranks. “It’s a little too early to plan for that,” Blaney said. “Right now, I want to keep winning and get exposure. Hopefully that will open some doors and we will see where that will lead us.” | 888-3519

Freshman making veteran moves A

t age 14, Clint King likes to talk a good game and is proving that he can play one as well on the race track. King, a freshman at South Davidson, pulled something of a shocker last Saturday when he became the youngest driver ever to win on the UARA late model tour. And when talking about the accomplishment in just his third UARA start, King was humble while getting ready in his quest to make it two in a row today at Dillon Speedway in South Carolina. “It is such an honor just to win in that series,” the Denton resident said of outrunning secondgeneration drivers Kyle Grissom (son of Steve) and Coleman Pressley (son of Robert) to prevail at Kingsport Speedway in Tennessee. “I was kind of surprised that we won. I had never seen the track before. But in the middle of the race, the car took off. All I had to do is mash the gas.” The humility included giving much of the credit to his crew chief, former Dash and ASA driver Ricky Bryant, and his advisor, last year’s UARA champ Matt McCall. “Ricky and Matt did all the setup work,” said King, who is relying on the knowledge of Bryant and McCall until he gets more experience. “They had it pretty close to perfect.” King drives cars owned by his father David, who owns Warehouse Designs in Thomasville and has funded his son’s racing out of his pocket since Clint first started competing in Bandolero cars at age 8. “He likes to give other people credit,” David King said. “But he

has been hard to beat at any level once he gets out in front.” Clint said he first became interested in racing when his father helped SPORTS former Caraway Speedway champ Greer Greg Marlowe. Smith “I can barely ■■■ remember going to the track with them when I was 3 or 4,” Clint said. “It was enough to know that I wanted to be in the motorsports field.” Enough that he persisted in telling his dad that he wanted to drive. The persistence was rewarded when he got his first Bandolero car for Christmas. The move into late models at such a young age is the result of a basic plan to be successful in a type of car and then move on, Clint explained. He raced Bandolero cars from 2004-07, then switched to the Pro Challenge series for scale-size late models. He won 13 of 23 races and the Pro Challenge national championship in 2008. “We were debating whether to put him in a late model and Ricky said to put him in a Late Model Truck to help him get a feel for what a full-sized late model would be like,” David King said. Bryant knew full well about Late Model Trucks, having won a truck championship at Caraway Speedway. The decision also allowed Clint to participate in a touring series, because PASS allowed 13-year-

olds in its truck series last year. Clint won truck rookie honors at Caraway and won four races: two at Caraway, one at Hickory and one at Coastal Plains Speedway near Jacksonville. “My dad has always tried to make sure that I’ve had the proper credentials to move up,” Clint said. “That’s one big reason we’ve been able to win out of the box. And, we put a lot into preparation, that the car is 100 percent ready when we roll out the door.” Clint admits he has a lot to learn about all the tricks of driving, such as getting snookered on a restart at Kingsport before rallying to win, and that Bryant is his biggest asset. For now, the plan is to remain in UARA with an eye to moving to either the NASCAR East Series or ARCA when he becomes age eligible at 16 next August, provided he comes up with a ride or the family team lands sponsorship. And Clint acknowledges that college also may factor into the equation. “That could be a big plus when you look at how Ryan Newman has been helped by his engineering degree,” Clint said. And then there is his knack for talking a good game. He doesn’t shy away from the media. His graduation project at South is broadcast communications. “That’s a big part of being a driver if you want to be successful,” he said. “I don’t mind doing interviews. I have fun doing all the P.R. stuff.” And winning. | 888-3519

Team owner Kyle Busch drives to Trucks victory GLADEVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Kyle Busch raced to his first NASCAR victory as a team owner, dominating the Nashville 200 on Friday night at Nashville Superspeedway for his 17th career Camping World Trucks Series win.

The Sprint Cup star led 131 of 150 lap on the 1.333-mile concrete oval. Kevin Harvick, the winner of his previous four Trucks starts, was second, followed by Ron Hornaday Jr., Timothy Peters and Todd Bodine.

The last time Busch ran at Nashville Superspeedway he made headlines for smashing the trophy, a hand-painted custom Gibson guitar, last June in a Nationwide Series race. This time, he didn’t destroy the guitar.

Homes with Chinese drywall to be gutted NEW ORLEANS (AP) – Thousands of U.S. homes tainted by Chinese drywall should be completely gutted, according to new guidelines released Friday by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. The guidelines say electrical wiring, outlets, circuit breakers, fire alarm systems, carbon monoxide alarms, fire sprinklers, gas pipes and drywall need to be removed. About 3,000 homeowners, mostly in Florida, Virginia, Mississippi, Alabama and Louisiana, have reported problems with the Chinesemade drywall, which was imported in large quantities during the housing boom and after a string of Gulf Coast hurricanes.

Job gains spur recovery WASHINGTON (AP) – The nation’s economy posted its largest job gain in three years in March, while the unemployment rate remained at 9.7 percent for the third straight month. The increase in payrolls is the latest sign that the economic recovery is gaining momentum and healing in the job market is beginning. Still, the healing is likely to be slow, and most economists don’t expect new hiring to be fast enough this year to rapidly reduce the unemployment rate. The Labor Department said employers added 162,000 jobs in March, the most since the recession

began but below analysts’ expectations of 190,000. The total includes 48,000 temporary workers hired for the U.S. Census, also fewer than many economists forecast. Private employers added 123,000 jobs, the most since May 2007. “It’s just the beginning of a rise in private hiring that will help sustain the recovery,” said Stuart Hoffman, chief economist at PNC Financial Services Group. “They’re not big numbers, but they’re welcome numbers.” Still, there are 15 million Americans out of work, roughly double the total before the recession began in December

2007. More Americans entered the work force last month, which prevented the increase in jobs from reducing the unemployment rate. Manufacturers added 17,000 jobs, the third straight month of gains. Temporary help services added 40,000, while health care added 37,000. Leisure and hospitality added 22,000. Even the beleaguered construction industry added 15,000 positions, though that likely reflects a rebound from February, when major snowstorms may have kept many construction workers off payrolls. The average work week

increased to 34 hours from 33.9, a positive sign. Most employers are likely to work current employees longer before they hire new workers. The department also revised January’s job total to show a gain of 14,000, up from a previously reported loss of 26,000. February’s job numbers were also revised higher by 22,000 to show a loss of 14,000. The economy has now added jobs in three months since the recession began. Still, more Americans said they were working part-time even though they preferred full-time work. When they and discouraged workers who

In this screen shot provided by eBay Inc., the new FASHION destination for clothing, shoes and accessories is shown.

EBay makes play for fashion NEW YORK (AP) – EBay Inc. may be the biggest online clothing seller, but it’s still known for selling other people’s castoffs. Now it wants shoppers to think of it when looking for trendy duds like hipster jeans and red ballerina flats. EBay will launch a new fashion microsite Monday. It’s the latest in a series of changes that will sometimes have it acting more like an outlet mall or

“private sale” Web site. EBay is working with major fashion brands and retailers such as Hugo Boss and Lord & Taylor to act as sellers. The new microsite,, will bring to together several new ways of selling. The company began testing “flash” sales — short-term sales of a small selection of merchandise — late last year. It launched “Fashion Vault” earlier this week, putting

it directly in competition with private sales players like and Ruelala. com, which sell trendy clothing and accessories at deep discounts. EBay also is creating an online outlet mall that so far has enlisted Lord & Taylor; Brooks Brothers and shoe brand Aldo will be added later this spring. Meanwhile, eBay, which sold $7.1 billion worth of clothing last year and has 10 million buyers just

looking for fashion, also hopes to add more exclusive fashions after successful deals with designers Narciso Rodriguez and Norma Kamali.

CHARLOTTE – With hype swirling nationally about today’s release of Apple’s iPad, reaction in Charlotte appears, well, mixed. Some folks can’t wait to get their hands on the computing tablet Apple modestly describes as “magical and revolutionary.”

Others are taking a wait-and-see approach. Count Charlotte’s Eric Banks among the former. The self-described mobile and wireless gadget enthusiast sent out a tweet on Thursday describing this exchange he had with his wife: “Me: iPad coming Sat. Can we delay our Disney trip 1 day? Wife: are you crazy? Me: Yes?”

If the first hands-on product reviews are any gauge, he’s not the only one excited. The Wall Street Journal’s test drive prompted this headline on Thursday: “Laptop Killer? Pretty Close.” The New York Times calls it “basically a gigantic iPod Touch” that will wow the masses, even if it leaves some techies grumbling

about its lack of innovative features. It’s hard to tell how Charlotte consumers will react. Apple officials declined to say how many units have shipped to the area. Local Best Buy stores — which are the only place currently selling iPad other than Apple stores — say they don’t plan on opening early Saturday.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) – The federal government says it’s relaxing some rules to make it easier for communities to spend funds on redeveloping abandoned and foreclosed properties. Changes announced Friday to a $4 billion program will allow communities to spend money on properties in mortgage default and uninhabitable homes with lingering code violations. The Department of Housing and Urban Development says the changes allow more properties to qualify for the program. Some officials say they’ve had trouble with confusing and ever-changing federal rules for the money, awarded in the midst of the nation’s foreclosure crisis.

AirTran CEO pay rises NEW YORK (AP) – The CEO and president of AirTran Holdings Inc., which operates AirTran Airways, saw his total compensation rise 30 percent in 2009, according to an Associated Press analysis of a regulatory filing Friday. Robert Fornaro received total compensation valued at about $2 million last year, compared with $1.5 million in 2008. His base salary rose 5 percent to $525,000, from $500,000 the year before.

Madoff whistle-blower softens criticism of SEC BOSTON (AP) – A man who for years tried to warn federal financial regulators that Bernard Madoff was running a giant Ponzi scheme says the Securities and Exchange Commission is getting better at policing the industry, but needs to improve even more. Harry Markopolos said

at a business ethics conference at Suffolk University in Boston on Thursday that the SEC’s changes have been “evolutionary, not revolutionary.” He said “it’s not good enough” and that Wall Street can’t police itself. Markopolos, a private

fraud investigator, tried to warn the SEC that Madoff’s investment strategies did not make sense, but his concerns went unheeded. After Madoff was exposed, Markopolos became highly critical of the SEC.

Source: Sheen ready to leave show LOS ANGELES (AP) – Charlie Sheen is looking at a future without “Two and a Half Men.” According to a person close to the actor, Sheen has told friends that he wants to leave the hit CBS comedy in which he’s starred for seven years. The person spoke Thursday on condition of anonymity because Sheen had made the remarks in private and had not intended them to be discussed publicly. “Two and a Half Men,” which

also stars Jon Cryer, is the top-rated comedy on TV and a key part of CBS’ Monday night lineup. Last year, CBS gave the show a Sheen three-year renewal through the 2011-12 season, but Sheen’s contract is up at the end of the current season. Sheen, 44, has tired of the demands of a weekly show and wants to focus on movies.

Napolitano tours RI floods as state pleads for aid

Friend calls Jesse James ‘a broken man’ LOS ANGELES (AP) – Jesse James is a “a broken man” and is hoping that rehab and some privacy will help him recover and save his marriage to Sandra Bullock, his friend and attorney said. Joe Yanny told The Associated Press that allegations of marital infidelity against James and the ensuing media “feeding frenzy” have ruined the biker businessman’s life. “This whole thing has destroyed Jesse’s entire universe,” Yanny said. “Right now, he’s a broken man.” He said James is still in love with Bullock and hopes the

ARWICK, R.I. (AP) – U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano took a helicopter tour over stillflooded Rhode Island on Friday, witnessing waterlogged shopping malls and homes with people’s possessions laid out to dry in their yards, as residents and officials in the al- Napoliano ready economically troubled state pleaded for her to secure more federal aid. Napolitano called the flooding “significant” and pledged the federal government’s help in the months to come. State officials, including U.S. Reps. Jim Langevin and Patrick Kennedy, pressed for more than what’s already been promised. “We were already reeling from a bad economy. This is the last thing that Rhode Island could deal with, and yet, here we are,” Langevin, whose district was hardest hit, said to Napolitano during a news conference. “Families, individuals, businesses need the help, as soon as possible.” The National Weather Service said it did not expect the Pawtuxet River, source of much of the flooding, to go below flood stage until at least Sunday. Many neighborhoods and businesses have been under water since Monday due to three days of record-setting rain that caused the worst flooding in the state in at least 200 years.

HISTORIC PITCH: Obama will mark 100-year tradition with pro baseball. 2D

Managing Editor: Sherrie Dockery (336) 888-3539


Fed to help get coverage for uninsured health conditions. WASHINGTON (AP) – The Five billion dolObama administration sought lars is being spent Friday to show voters concrete on the program, benefits from the new health which will remain care law, taking steps to proin place until the vide insurance coverage to sweeping health people with pre-existing health Sebelius law is fully impleconditions. mented in 2014, The law the president signed March 23 requires creation when insurance companies will within 90 days of buying pools have to take all comers. The program will build on to target uninsured people who can’t get coverage because of buying pools that already exist

in some states. The federal government will let states take the lead in setting up new pools or will administer them in states that don’t want to participate on their own. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius wrote to states Friday asking them to report back by the end of April on how they want to proceed. The new program will provide “immediate relief for po-

tentially millions of Americans with pre-existing conditions, like diabetes or high-blood pressure, who have been shut out of the insurance system,” Sebelius told reporters on a conference call. The administration is under pressure to turn the health care bill from a political negative into a positive ahead of the fall elections and to undercut Republican calls to repeal the law.

In recent speeches, President Barack Obama has dared the GOP to push for repeal, calling on Republicans to look uninsured voters in the face and tell them newfound benefits will be yanked. Administration officials believe their best defense against Republican criticism of the bill is a good offense highlighting its benefits, especially things that take effect quickly.

US refines terror-screening policy


Dallas Police Sgt. Warren C. Mitchell speaks about citation to singer Erykah Badu for striping nude.

Singer charged over Dallas nude video shoot DALLAS (AP) – Neosoul singer Erykah Badu faces a disorderly conduct charge for her nude music video shoot in downtown Dallas’ Dealey Plaza, officials announced Friday. Badu, a Dallas native, performed a walking striptease in front of tourists and pedestrians during the March 13 shoot for Badu’s “Window Seat” music video. The performance ended with a nude Badu acting out receiving a fatal gunshot to the head at the spot where President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in 1963. Sgt. Warren Mitchell said Friday the decision to cite Badu for disorderly conduct – a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to $500 – came after witness Ida Espinosa, 32, of Vernon, offered a sworn statement to police Thursday. Espinosa declined to comment to The Associated Press on Friday.

Ban lifted: Pilots can take antidepressants on job WASHINGTON (AP) – The government is lifting a 70-year-old ban on letting pilots fly while on antidepressants, citing improvements in the drugs and an unforeseen side effect of the restriction: Depressed pilots kept flying but just kept their conditions secret. “Our concern is that they haven’t necessarily been candid,” Federal Aviation Administrator Randy Babbitt told reporters. The change in policy, which includes a degree of amnesty for pilots who lied about their diagnosis, is aimed in part at clueing the government in on how many pilots suffer from a disease whose symptoms can include thoughts of suicide, FAA officials said.

WASHINGTON (AP) – The U.S. government is refining its terror-screening policy to focus on specific terror threats and not travelers’ nationalities. The new policy replaces a security requirement put in place after the attempted bombing of a jetliner en route to Detroit on Christmas Day that singled out people from 14 countries that have been home to terrorists. It also expands the pool of foreign travelers targeted for extra screening beyond those whose names are on a U.S. terror watch list. The changes, announced Friday by the Homeland Security Department, come after a three-month review of counterterrorism policies ordered by President Barack Obama in the wake of the nearmiss attack. Officials hope the new procedures will close a dangerous security gap that that allegedly allowed Nigerian Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab to board a Detroit-bound airplane in Amsterdam with a bomb hidden in his underwear. It should also significantly decrease the number of innocent travelers


In this Sept. 11, 2008 photo, Transportation Security Administration officer Liz Brown works at Albany International Airport in Albany, N.Y. from the 14 countries who have been inconvenienced by the extra screening, said a senior administration official who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive security issues. The countries that had

been affected include Afghanistan, Algeria, Cuba, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Nigeria, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. Under the refined policy, a person traveling to the U.S. would be stopped

if he or she fits a specific description of a potential terrorist provided by U.S. intelligence officials – even if the suspect’s name is unknown. Currently, passengers’ names are compared to names on U.S. terror

watch lists. If air carriers have a potential match to a watch list, the passenger is either banned from flying to the U.S. or subjected to extra screening such as a full-body patdown before boarding the airplane.

Army moves troops, gear from Iraq to Afghanistan


A Tesoro Corp. refinery, including a gas flare flame that is part of normal plant operations, is shown Friday in Anacortes, Wash. An overnight fire and explosion at the refinery killed four people and critically injured three others.

4 dead, 3 hurt in blast, fire at Washington state refinery ANACORTES, Wash. (AP) – A Washington state oil refinery hit by a deadly blast and fire early Friday was recently fined for safety violations amid what federal watchdogs call a troubling trend of serious accidents at refineries. The blast struck the Tesoro Corp. refinery in Anacortes, about 70 miles north of Seattle on Puget Sound, around 12:30 a.m. Employees were doing maintenance work on a unit that processes highly flammable liquid derived

during the refining process, the company said. The blast shook houses and woke people miles away, shooting flames as high as the refinery’s tower before the blaze was extinguished about 90 minutes later. “We could tell this was horrific, this was huge,” said Jan Taylor of La Conner, Wash., who felt the blast rock her motorhome at the RV park across the bay. Three men died at the scene and a woman died later at a Seattle hospital.

Three others were hospitalized with major burns over the majority of their bodies. It was the largest fatal refinery accident since a 2005 explosion at a BP American refinery in Texas killed 15 people and injured another 170. Six investigators with the U.S. Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board were dispatched to the scene, and the Washington Department of Labor and Industries launched an investigation.

WASHINGTON (AP) – The military is scrambling to finish what it calls the largest movement of troops and equipment since the buildup of World War II as it draws down in Iraq and ramps up in Afghanistan. Third Army commander Lt. Gen. William G. Webster told Pentagon reporters Friday the top priority is to keep moving the planned 30,000 troops and their supplies that President Barack Obama has ordered

into Afghanistan to bolster the fight against the insurgency. Speaking from Kuwait, Webster said the military is moving as fast as it can on the massive and complex job. There are roughly 3 million pieces of equipment in Iraq, including 41,000 vehicles and trailers. Some of the equipment will remain in Iraq; some will return to the U.S. to be used for troop training; some will be reconfigured for use in Afghanistan.

Presidential pitch Obama will mark 100-year tradition at Monday opener


President Franklin D. Roosevelt delivers the first pitch at the season opening Senator-Athletics battle in Washington in 1938. One hundred years ago, a portly right-hander, President William Howard Taft, threw out the first pitch at a Washington Senators game, a weak lob from the stands to the great Walter Johnson. catch on the White House grounds to prepare for Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opener. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just like all the pitchers around the majors, the southpaw president has engaged in a little spring training in the Rose Garden to get his curve ball in Opening Day order,â&#x20AC;? said White House spokesman Robert Gibbs. Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pitch last year wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the greatest. Cardinals first baseman Albert Pujols, a future Hall of Famer, saved him from the embarrassment of a short hop by moving up to scoop the low pitch inches off the ground. Taft got similar help from another Hall of Famer, pitcher Walter Johnson, as The Associated Press reported: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The throw was a little low, but the pitcher stuck out

Magistrateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s order keeps militia suspects behind bars DETROIT (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Eight suspected members of a Christian militia that prosecutors say was bent on sparking a war against the U.S. government were ordered Friday by a magistrate to remain locked up until trial. U.S. District Court Magistrate Judge Donald J. Scheer said during his ruling in Detroit that federal prosecutors had provided the court with â&#x20AC;&#x153;very disturbing information.â&#x20AC;? Scheer said that he agreed with defense at-

torneys that possessing firearms, mistrusting the government and practicing military exercises are not illegal. However, he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;there comes a point when those activities ... may lead to actions which would constitute evidence of criminal offense.â&#x20AC;? Defense attorney James Thomas, who represents Josh Stone, 21, appealed Scheerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ruling and expected others to do the same. A hearing wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expected until next week.

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; One hundred years ago this month, a rotund right-hander, President William Howard Taft, started a baseball tradition by throwing out the ceremonial first pitch at the Washington season opener. On Monday, the Nationals turn to a svelte southpaw, President Barack Obama, to make his Nationals Park debut. For much of the last century, baseball was king in Washington, and presidents were on the throne, as Congress often recessed so members could attend what became known as the presidential opener. From Taft to Richard Nixon, every president made at least one opening-day toss in Washington. After a 33year absence, baseball returned to Washington in 2005, and George W. Bush resumed the tradition by throwing the opening pitch for the Nationals. This will be Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first Washington opener and his second time pitching as president. He did the honors at last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s All-Star Game in St. Louis and noted that he was allowed to practice his throw beforehand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I did not play organized baseball when I was a kid, and so, you know, I think some of these natural moves arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t so natural to me,â&#x20AC;? Obama said. The president has been warming up this time around, too, playing

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Five people died and at least one remained unaccounted for Friday after a fire swept through a two-story building in Minneapolis that included several apartments and an Irish pub, authorities said. One woman died early Friday, then three more bodies â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including two children â&#x20AC;&#x201C; were recovered hours later, said Mayor R.T. Rybak. A fifth body, badly burned, was recovered Friday afternoon, Minneapolis Fire Chief Alex Jackson said. None of the dead or missing were identified. Firefighters said the blaze broke out about 6 a.m., and they arrived to find heavy flames and smoke coming out of the building. By Friday afternoon, the roof had collapsed.

Honda’s newest truck tops in reliability ANN M. JOB THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


Guess which pickup truck has the top reliability rating of any consumer truck sold in the United States. Two hints: It’s built by a company that’s known for fuel-efficient car, and it’s not one of the best-selling trucks in the country. The answer: The Honda Ridgeline. Introduced in spring 2005 as Honda’s first pickup, the Ridgeline isn’t a brawny brute capable of towing 8,500 pounds and climbing over sizable rocks off road. Rather, the Ridgeline is a four-door, five-passenger, four-wheel drive, mid-size truck that’s agile for everyday driving and comfortable for outdoor getaways on less-aggressive off-road terrain. Towing capacity is 5,000 pounds. And the Ridgeline remains the only truck with some innovative features, such as a lockable trunk in the floor of its pickup bed and a tailgate that can flip down the usual way or swing out, like a car door, for easier access to the bed. The Ridgeline also has car-like unibody constru


The Ridgeline is the only truck with a lockable trunk in the floor of its pickup bed. ction to help provide a smooth ride. Unlike many other trucks, there’s no bargain-basement version of Ridgeline, which helps to explain the lagging sales. The well-equipped Ridgeline has a starting manufacturer’s suggested retail price, with destination charge, of $29,160. This includes a V-6, five-speed automatic

transmission and standard four-wheel drive and compares with $26,840 for a V-6-powered, 2010 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab SE with four-wheel drive and automatic transmission. A 2010 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab with four doors, V-6, four-wheel drive and automatic transmission has a starting retail price of $27,550. The Frontier and Ta-

coma have body-on-frame construction typical of trucks. They also are offered in lower-priced versions that have less equipment. For example, a 2010 Tacoma with regular cab with only front seats, four-cylinder engine and manual transmission starts at $16,145. Clearly, Honda officials had something different in mind for the crew

cab-only Ridgeline, and it was mostly the owners of Honda cars like the Accord and Civic who also have pickups parked in the driveways. In 2005, Honda officials estimated about 18 percent of the millions of Honda owners in America were in this category, and they projected annual Ridgeline sales of 50,000. Alas, Ridgeline hasn’t caught

2010 Honda Ridgeline RTL Nav BASE PRICE: $28,450 for RT; $31,555 for RTS; $34,430 for RTL without navigation; $36,780 for RTL with navigation AS TESTED: $37,490. TYPE: Front-engine, four-wheel drive, fivepassenger, mid-size pickup truck ENGINE: 3.5-liter, single overhead cam V-6 with VTEC MILEAGE: 15 mpg (city), 20 mpg (highway) TOP SPEED: NA LENGTH: 207 inches WHEELBASE: 122 inches CURB WEIGHT: 4,564 pounds BUILT AT: Lincoln, Ala. OPTIONS: None DESTINATION CHARGE: $71 on, despite the stellar reliability rating of Consumer Reports, where the Ridgeline is a recommended buy and reliability is “better than average.” Even the Tacoma, another recommended buy, doesn’t have that reliability rating. Neither do top-selling trucks like the full-size Ford F-150 and Chevrolet Silverado.
