Nancy Rothrock and Pamela Dobbins Stern will partner with hopes of making a vacant building downtown more attractive to potential buyers.

This artist’s rendering by Nancy Rothrock demonstrates what can be done to attract developers to vacant downtown buildings.

First in a two-part series on a proposal to beautify downtown through the use of artwork on vacant buildings.

Sprucing up downtown, one building at a time

BLANK CANVAS Helping downtown through art ■■■


HIGH POINT – Pamela Dobbins Stern’s memories of downtown High Point when she was a child made her a crusader. The boarded-up, empty buildings downtown – to put it simply – make her sick, she said. “I just don’t like them sitting there empty, and if you don’t like it, do something,” she said. Stern has a plan to do something, starting with one building at a time. She will begin after Labor Day working on the facade of a for-sale building on the east side of the 100 block of N. Main Street. Her plan includes creating a partial false front that can display facial portraits of High Pointers by local mural artist Nancy Rothrock. Her aim is to make the building more attractive and draw attention to it in hopes it will sell to someone who will maintain a business there. “They were the best memories of my life,” Stern said of going downtown when she was

a child. “I remember Belk Department Store, Wilson’s Shoes, the building with the eye doctor upstairs and the pharmacy downstairs, I remember going to Kress and Richardson’s department store. That was my first job; my sister and brother and I worked there at the same time. It was exciting, knowing we were going to get in the car and go downtown. We had our portraits made at Belk, and we still have those. “It breaks my heart to see it

now.” Stern’s father, J.D. Dobbins, was president of First Federal Savings and Loan, which was where BB&T bank is now. On Sundays, the Dobbins kids would play in the break room at the bank while their father did paperwork. Now, few High Pointers have reason to go downtown, and Stern for years has been trying to change that. In 2006, she bought the Big Bureau at N. Hamilton Street and Westwood Avenue because plans were for it to be torn down. She carried out cosmetic work on the building, and she hopes to sell it to someone who will honor its history. Last year, she began fighting city plans for a downtown showroom district, and in the end the plan was abandoned. In the process of arguing against the district, an informal group that calls itself The Downtown District sprang up. Its members champion the downtown area, and it is through the group that Stern will undertake the project to

make the building look more appealing. She has full approval of the owner. Stern owns Move It! Makeovers, a business that goes into homes or businesses for sale or showroom – anyplace, really – and spruces up the interior, exterior or surrounding area. Some of her employees will provide labor for the project. Stern will donate her time and resources, and she readily admits that in addition to improving downtown High Point visually, another goal is to bring herself business somewhere down the road. “I bought the Bureau, and nobody helped me, and I figure if I help people with their property, it will make mine more valuable,” she said. “I just think if somebody doesn’t do something to start the ball rolling, well, you’ve got to start somewhere.” | 888-3601

In this photo taken July 17, 2010, re-enactors portraying members of the 54th Massachusetts regiment fire a volley during a program at Fort Moultrie on Sullivans Island, S.C. The original regiment was involved the July, 1863 charge on Confederate Battery Wagner on nearby Morris Island, a battle commemorated in the movie “Glory.”

Re-enactors keep memory of black Civil War troops alive SULLIVANS ISLAND, S.C. (AP) – The role of black Civil War troops in gaining the freedom of black Americans was pushed to a distant corner of the national memory for decades. But the little-known story of the more than 200,000 blacks who served in the Union forces is one that scattered groups of black re-enactors are dedicated to retelling as the 150th anniversary of the war approaches. It’s also a story many re-enactors themselves didn’t discover until adulthood. “I’m originally from Ohio,” said Mel Reid, a retired National Park Service ranger from Washington, D.C., who re-enacts in a company of the 54th Massachusetts, perhaps the most famous black unit in the war. “My teachers didn’t know that black soldiers fought in the Civil War so they didn’t teach us that,” he said.

Black re-enactors were unheard of 50 years ago during the Civil War centennial. But the story of the troops has emerged in the past 20 years thanks to new scholarship, the 1989 movie “Glory,” and Ken Burns’ PBS documentary on the Civil War. “Glory” tells the story of the 54th, one of several Union regiments that made an unsuccessful attack in July, 1863, on Confederate Battery Wagner on Morris Island on Charleston Harbor. Reid was an extra in the movie and has been re-enacting since. He said 20 years ago there were no black re-enactors and “we were recruited just like the original 54th.” Ernest Parks of James Island, southwest of Charleston, became a re-enactor after seeing the 54th. “It’s a calling,” said Parks, who works for South Carolina Department of Transportation. “It just kept

calling me when I discovered the history, because this was never taught to us.” His neighbor, James Brown, a 50-year-old construction worker, said as a youth he always knew there was fighting nearby, but never the whole story. “When we would go crabbing we would find old cannon balls,” he recalled. “We would be trying to clean the inside and beating on them trying to get the barnacles off so we could bowl with soda bottles.” The story of the black troops is “really the only new story of the Civil War. Other stories have been presented but this one has been suppressed for so long,” said Hari Jones, curator of the African-American Civil War Memorial and Museum in Washington, D.C.

WakeMed wants out of non-emergency NC inmate care RALEIGH (AP) – A North Carolina hospital plans to quit providing non-emergency care for state prison inmates because of the cost and hassle of dealing with those patients, The News and Observer of Raleigh reported Saturday. WakeMed notified the state Correction Department earlier this month that it will stop treatment Oct. 1, leaving the state little time to find alternatives. “It creates some major challenges for us,” agency spokeswoman Pamela Walker said. “They

wanted some equity in the Triangle. We certainly understand that. But we have to do everything in our power to provide inmates with care.” Walker says the agency is negotiating with the University of North Carolina Health Care System about providing more inmate care. Some inmates are expected to begin receiving treatment next year at facilities being built in Raleigh, including a $154 million facility at Central Prison and a $48 million facility at the Correctional In-

tion and the legislators and got engaged.” During the fiscal year that ended June 30, WakeMed treated 1,197 inmates, or about 17 percent of the nearly 6,900 inmates statewide that required hospital care during that period, according to the Correction Department. The hospital pointed out in its letter to agency chief Alvin Keller Jr. that during the same period Duke Health Raleigh treated 106 and Rex Healthcare treated three.

stitution for Women. WakeMed officials have complained that fees paid by the state don’t cover the medical center’s costs. The hospital also lobbied for and won a law change that requires the Correction Department to place no more than 5 percent of all sick prisoners to a single hospital. “We will do our fair share, but we don’t want to be the default hospital,” WakeMed chief executive Bill Atkinson said. “We didn’t ask for that. So we went to the hospital associa-


Old-fashioned tweet can net you a bird BRAINERD, Minn. (AP) – Tweeting the oldfashioned way can net you a steep discount on a feathered friend. The Animal Humane Society says its five Minnesota shelters are housing too many birds. In an effort to encourage adoptions, the society says those who

can imitate a bird call or are willing to sing or whistle a few lines of a bird-themed song will qualify to adopt a bird for just $1. Officials say most of the cockatiels, parakeets and finches were properly cared for but that their owners could no longer handle them.

Stern, Rothrock have plan for ‘revitalization’ BY VICKI KNOPFLER ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – Pam Stern’s plan to improve downtown, one location at a time, starts with a building that most recently housed a hot tub business. The building doesn’t display a street number, but it is two doors north of what recently was Perkinson’s Jewelers, which was at 110 N. Main St. Her plans are for volunteers to paint a base coat on the front of the building, then to place wood to serve as a base for painting details across the top, front of the building. Local artist Nancy Rothrock volunteered to create a scene on the wood and bottom of the building. The women don’t intend to create a mural, such as the one outside the High Point Theatre on E. Commerce Avenue. Rather they want to depict architectural details that will suggest what the

building could look like, if refurbished.

Afghan militants in American uniforms storm 2 NATO bases birthplace of Kandahar. Also Saturday, three more American service members were killed – two in a bombing in the south and the third in fighting in eastern Afghanistan, the U.S. command said. That brought to 38 the number of U.S. troops killed this month – well below last month’s figure of 66. The militant assault in the border province of Khost began about 4 a.m. when dozens of insurgents stormed Forward Operating Base Salerno and nearby Camp Chap-

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) – U.S. and Afghan troops repelled attackers wearing American uniforms and suicide vests in a pair of simultaneous assaults before dawn Saturday on NATO bases near the Pakistani border, including one where seven CIA employees died in a suicide attack last year. The raids appear part of an insurgent strategy to step up attacks in widely scattered parts of the country as the U.S. focuses its resources on the battle around the Taliban’s southern

man with mortars, rocket-propelled grenades and automatic weapons, according to NATO and Afghan police. Two attackers managed to breach the wire protecting Salerno but were killed before they could advance far onto the base, NATO said. Twenty-one attackers were killed – 15 at Salerno and six at Chapman – and five were captured, it said. Three more insurgents, including a commander, were killed in an airstrike as they fled the area, NATO said.

Deputy attorney general forced to retire KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) – A top Afghan prosecutor who has complained that the attorney general and others are blocking corruption cases against high-ranking government officials said Saturday that he had been forced into retirement. Deputy Attorney General Fazel Ahmed Faqiryar said his boss, Attorney General Mohammad Ishaq Aloko, wrote a retirement letter for him earlier this week and that President Hamid Karzai accepted it.

Faqiryar, 72, said he wanted to continue doing his work, which has involved pursuing corruption allegations against top officials in the Karzai administration – a task which had put him in the middle of a political fire storm. U.S. officials have been pressing Karzai to do more to root out corruption. Karzai has pushed back, saying that the international community needs to do more to eliminate corruption in its own contracting procedures.

flooding is just the most recent chapter. “There is not enough water.

Reward offered for deputy killing suspect FREDONIA, Ariz. – The U.S. Marshals Service has offered a $10,000 reward for information leading to the capture of a man accused of killing a Utah sheriff’s deputy in northern Arizona. Authorities say 23year-old Scott Curley vanished after he fatally shot 41-year-old Kane County Deputy Brian Harris in Fredonia on Thursday and was believed to be hiding in the wilderness on the Arizona-Utah line.

A grove of 16 swamp white oaks is planted at the National September 11 Memorial, Saturday, in New York.

NEW YORK (AP) – After nearly nine years, life is returning to ground zero in a tangible way. Crews Saturday began planting 16 swamp white oaks at the World Trade Center site. They are the first of nearly 400 trees to be planted around the eight-acre memorial to the nearly 2,800 people killed when terrorists attacked the twin towers on Sept. 11, 2001. The trees will dot a cobblestone plaza surrounding two huge pools built

on the footprints of the destroyed towers. Joe Daniels, president of the 9/11 Memorial Foundation, was on hand at the site to help with the planting. “When people come up to the pools and see the names and be under this canopy, this forest, it will be a very peaceful environment,� he said. The trees come from New York, Pennsylvania and Washington, D.C. – the places where the attacks hit.

Medicare program to help smokers quit WASHINGTON – They’ve lived with the health warnings about smoking for much of their lives and doubtless seen the ill effects on friends, relatives and even themselves, yet about 4.5 million older people in the U.S. keep on lighting up. Medicare is finally catching up to most private insurers by providing counseling for anyone on the program who’s trying to kick the habit. Dr. Barry Straube, Medicare’s chief medical officer, says it’s never too late to quit, even for lifelong smokers. “The elderly can respond to smoking cessation counseling even if they have been smoking for 30 years or more,� says Straube.

Obama: Iraq war is ending, Baghdad to chart future VINEYARD HAVEN, Mass. (AP) – President Barack Obama said the withdrawal of U.S. combat troops from Iraq means “the war is ending” and Baghdad is in position “to chart its own course.” Obama used his weekly radio and Internet address Saturday to highlight Tuesday’s formal end to U.S. combat missions in Iraq and remind people that he’s keeping a promise he made as a candidate in the 2008 election. Remaining troops will assume a backup and training role, a shift Obama will underscore with a visit to Fort Bliss, Texas, on Tuesday and then a primetime speech to the nation from the Oval

Office. The events come on Aug. 31, the date he set last year for the change in focus in the war. U.S. troop strength dropped below 50,000 this past week. “In the months ahead, our troops will Obama continue to support and train Iraqi forces, partner with Iraqis in counterterrorism missions and protect our civilian and military efforts,” Obama said, a day before ending his Martha’s Vineyard vacation to travel to New Orleans to mark another date: the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.

Turnout low as West Virginia picks Senate nominees CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) – It will be a threeway race for the late Robert C. Byrd’s U.S. Senate seat in November as voters decided to pit Democrat Gov. Joe Manchin against Republican John Raese and Mountain Party’s Jesse Johnson. The three will appear on the Nov. 2 general election ballot following light voter turnout for the primary prompted by Byrd’s death two months prior. The passing of the 92year-old Democrat put his seat in play as his party seeks to keep its majority in an election year that appears increasingly favorable to Republicans. November’s winner will take over from Sen. Carte Goodwin, a Democrat appointed by the governor for the interim. Manchin bested Sheirl Fletcher, a former state

Beck: Help restore American values WASHINGTON (AP) – Conservative commentator Glenn Beck and tea party champion Sarah Palin appealed Saturday to a vast, predominantly white crowd on the National Mall to help restore traditional American values and honor Martin Luther King’s message. Civil rights leaders who accused the group of hijacking King’s legacy held their own rally and march. While Beck billed his event as nonpolitical, conservative activists said their show of strength was a clear sign that they can swing elections because much of the country is angry with


Glenn Beck speaks at his “Restoring Honor� rally in front of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, Saturday. what many voters call an out-of-touch Washington. Palin told the tens of thousands who stretched from the marble steps of the Lincoln Memorial to the grass of the Washington Monument that calls to transform the country weren’t enough. “We must restore America and restore her honor,� said the former Alaska governor, echoing the name of the rally, “Restoring Honor.� Palin and Beck repeatedly cited King and made

references to the Founding Fathers. Beck put a heavy religious cast on nearly all his remarks. A group of civil rights activists organized by the Rev. Al Sharpton held a counter rally at a high school, then embarked on a three-mile march to the site of a planned monument honoring King. The site, bordering the Tidal Basin, was not far from the Lincoln Memorial where Beck and the others spoke about two hours earlier.

Paris Hilton arrested on cocaine rap in Vegas LAS VEGAS (AP) – Smoke wafting from a Cadillac Escalade on the Las Vegas Strip ignited Paris Hilton’s latest legal troubles late Friday, when a motorcycle officer who suspected the smell was marijuana stopped the vehicle and police say a bag of cocaine fell out of the 29year-old socialite’s purse. It’s the second time this year Hilton has been arrested on drug possession allegations, although authorities in South Africa dropped marijuana charges earlier this summer. In 2007, Hilton pleaded no contest to alcohol-related reckless driving and was sentenced to 45 days in jail. This time, the hotel heiress was with her boyfriend, Las Vegas nightclub mo-

gul Cy Waits, who manages a club inside the Wynn Las Vegas and was driving the black SUV Hilton that the officer stopped nearby at 11:22 p.m. Friday. The officer “followed the vapor trail and the odor of marijuana to the Escalade,� police Sgt. John Sheahan said. Hilton asked to go into the Wynn resort for privacy, Sheahan said. “Miss Hilton pulled out a tube of lip balm,� Sheahan said. “At the same time ... a bindle of cocaine in a plastic bag came out of her purse� in plain view of police in the room.

Sports Hall of Fame. • Perley Albert “P.A.” Thomas (Sept. 17, 1874-April 28, 1959) Thomas was a self-educated, visionary engineer. He founded Thomas Car Works in 1917 to build street cars.

• James Emory “J.E.” Gibson (Aug. 8, 1893-Feb. 27, 1968) During the Great Depression, he noticed his daughter with a paddle toy and thought his own version might sell. He bought plywood, rubber balls and elastic and rented a band saw for 10 cents a day. His family lined up in a buggy shed to assemble the “Fli-Back.” He traveled the Piedmont in a Model A hawking the previous day’s production. His big break came in New York while calling on R.H. Macy and S.H. Kress in a $15 red suit. Millions sold worldwide. • Willis Howard “Willis” Slane (April 21, 1921-Sept. 8, 1965) The boating industry was revolutionized by his belief that large hulls could be made of fiberglass, which was considered impossible.

At its peak, it used 1.25 million feet of lumber every six weeks. She was chairman of the board until her death at age 89. • Louis Joseph “Lou” Fisher (March 13, 1901-Oct. 7, 1981) He was a major force in sports governance, serving as president of the Carolinas Amateur Athletic Union, 1942.

Illegal immigrants hired to build SC schools, agency says COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; State investigators have identified nearly three dozen illegal immigrants working at school construction sites in one South Carolina county, and fined a company, officials announced Friday. The state agency overseeing South Carolinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s illegal immigration law reported that five subcontractors have been cited for employing 35 illegal workers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 32 of them identified since the 2008 law began applying to all businesses July 1. The investigation at public school construction sites in Pickens County began in November, following complaints from residents and contractors not hired for the jobs. But the scope was initially limited, since the law applied then only to employers with more than 100 workers, said Jim Knight, head of the Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office of Immigrant Worker Compliance. He expects more illegal workers to be identified as the investigation continues. State Sen. Larry Martin said it was unacceptable for local property taxes to pay the salaries of illegal workers when so many South Carolinians are out of work. The stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s jobless rate was 10.8 percent in July. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The taxpayers of Pickens County are paying a hefty sum in taxes to

provide for those school buildings, and the taxpayers expect and ought to expect those buildings be built by legal employees,â&#x20AC;? said Martin, R-Pickens. The projects are part of the school districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $365 million building program that includes seven new schools. County schools chief Henry Hunt said district officials are upset at the general contractors, which were sent reminder letters about ensuring all on-site workers were legal, and had signed contracts saying they would. The districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relying on the state for help, he said.

Mike and Kathy Liner ďŹ rst opened the Pioneer Family Restaurant and Steakhouse along with Walter and Ruby Hill in July of 1987. They opened their doors with the philosophy of providing customers with the highest quality products, largest portions at the most affordable prices that would allow them to stay in business. This motto was working well as customers far and near ďŹ&#x201A;ocked to the Pioneer for both lunch and dinner. Just as things were going great, the two lane Main Street underwent major construction to create the now ďŹ ve lane highway. During this time, cars could barely access the Pioneer parking lot and business began to slow. This was the period Mike and Kathy attribute to the development of perservance, personality and success that have made he Pioneer a cornerstone of the community. In order to keep their doors open during the massive road construction, Mike and Kathy decided to offer the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Road Construction Special.â&#x20AC;? A deal that was so good, even the most timid of drivers braved the construction to get through the doors. The Pioneer was sold in July of 1997 and purchased back on August 31, 2009. They would like to celebrate their anniversary by ging back to the 1980â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and 90â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where they got their start by offering some of those same great prices and deals including â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Road Constuction Special!â&#x20AC;?

GROVE CITY, Ohio (AP) – Critics of the country’s largest Lutheran denomination and its more open stance toward gay clergy formed a new Lutheran church Friday at a meeting of a conservative activist group. The overwhelming voice vote by members of the Lutheran Coalition of Renewal created the North American Lutheran Church, a tiny denomination of churches formerly affiliated with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, headquartered in Chicago. As of early August, 199 congregations had cleared the hurdles to leave the ELCA for good.

TINA DUPUY: Let’s have our fears be more accurate. TOMORROW

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


Alcoa critic sees evil where none exists Oh, my! Dean Naujoks, the Yadkin Riverkeeper, continues to show how out of touch with reality he is. In his recent guest column (Aug. 26), he accused his perennial villain, Alcoa, of bullying UNC-TV into removing its controversial reports on Alcoa from its website. Anyone who’s read the released UNC-TV e-mails knows the only bullies around were state Sens. Marc Basnight, D-Dare, Fletcher Hartsell, R-Cabarrus and Stan Bingham, R-Davidson. As YES! Weekly put it, “the pressure placed on UNC-TV management didn’t come from Alcoa, but from politicians like Basnight. Therefore, if UNC-TV management laid a finger on Vajda’s Alcoa



segments, state legislators, Gov. Beverly Perdue’s administration and every single Alcoa opponent would have cried foul.” Consequently, UNC-TV relinquished its usual editorial oversight, and aired reports which were roundly criticized by fellow journalists. UNC-TV’s General Manager Tom Howe termed one of the episodes a “train wreck.” Eszter Vajda found her employment terminated, and UNC-TV removed the episodes from its website. I’m not surprised Naujoks hates losing the only piece of sensational, yellow journalism which re-

ported his unfounded accusations of pollution without verification. It’s hard to find a journalist who will do that. Naujoks continues to rant about Alcoa’s PCBs causing contamination, and now, even deaths. That’s in spite of the fact that the state’s lead environmental agency, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, has found that the PCBs in Badin Lake fish cannot be fingerprinted to Alcoa, they are a watershed-based issue. Naujoks continues to rant about Alcoa’s PAH contamination, when a state epidemiologist has concluded

that the level of PAHs are about the same as those found in urban soil, and pose no health risk. It goes on, and on, and on. The Yadkin River needs a new Alcoa license – and a new riverkeeper! ANN BROWNLEE Salisbury

Downtown face-lifts could lead to more


City Council


hat an outstanding idea! Make empty former storeroom/former showroom buildings downtown look more attractive by giving them a faux face-lift, suggesting what the buildings may look like if refurbished. Give Pamela Dobbins Stern a pat on the back for stepping forward to “do something” about the situation downtown and to mural artist Nancy Rothrock for partnering with Stern on a plan to begin illusory revitalization in the center city area. We say illusory because rather than slapping a mural on the buildings, Stern and Rothrock will create and decorate partial false fronts to make them more attractive and to draw attention to them in hopes they will sell to someone who will establish and maintain businesses there. The projects can’t be done free of charge – estimates indicate that most projects will require $1,000 to $2,000 each and those amounts mostly are for supplies. Stern, who owns Move It! Makeovers, will donate her time and resources, plans to get volunteers to paint a building with a base coat and Rothrock has volunteered to create a scene on the wood across the bottom floor of a building. You can trigger their fundraising mechanism by buying face-space: For $150, Rothrock will paint your face onto a figure in a mural and, for $250, she will create a scene in street-level windows and/or paint a full body with your face on the figure. Names of those purchasing face-space will be listed on a street-level plaque. These murals will be considerably different than those High Pointer Phil Christman has painted on various buildings locally as well as in Colorado, Hawaii and Virginia to name a few states and painting backdrops in Hollywood; and those of Eric Alan Grohe, a New York City native, graphic designer and illustrator, who in 1973 got into painting murals for Expo ’74 in Spokane and since has received national recognition for his work, which he says now is focused on painting figurative and architectural murals for clients throughout the country. One of Grohe’s many murals in Massillon, Ohio, is shown below this editorial. The Christman and Grohe type murals may become part of the downtown landscape later in the process but, for now, Stern and Rothrock want to produce something that will spark your imagination and, hopefully, those of people willing to go into business in some of those abandoned buildings downtown. As Stern told The High Point Enterprise, “You’ve got to start somewhere.” What an outstanding idea!



The High Point Enterprise is committed to this community ... and always will serve it by being an intensely local newspaper of excellent quality every day.

If you don’t have thick skin, don’t even think about it


he Quotations Page [] is a wonderful resource, especially when you want to accurately recite a quote to make a point. In this column, I’ll use a word-play on a quote attributed to Abraham Lincoln: “You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all of the time.” Ahh, if current-day politicians, including (and perhaps particularly) President Obama and quite a few (from both parties) in congressional leadership positions only would take such advice to heart. But that’s not my point. Before I get to that, I need to explain that we at The High Point Enterprise have been receiving queries from a surprisingly increasing number of people – teens, 20- and 30-somethings, even folks older (some much older) – interested in becoming journalists, even print journalists. I haven’t quite figured out why, given the gloom-and-doom reports we’ve all seen, heard and read about the future of newspapers the last few years. Still, I’m mighty glad they are interested, and, as we did with Wesleyan Christian Academy student Lauren Shore just last weekend, we’re usually glad to help give them whatever information they need. I often tell inquirers that, as a journalist, paraphrasing Lincoln’s statement, you can please some of the people some of the time, you can anger some of the people some of the time and you can rest assured that you never can please all of the people any of the time. Journalists deal daily with three major groups of people: 1. Those who want their stories (even if they aren’t of much interest to anyone else) in print. 2. Those who don’t want their stories in print. 3. Those who often are opposed, sometimes vehemently, to the way a story (negative or positive) is written or presented. That’s the nature of the beast. Journalists with thin skins often pretty quickly seek jobs in some other line of work. Enterprise reporter Paul B. Johnson jarred my memory a couple of weeks ago by noting that “we began reporting at least two years ago that CBL & Associates Properties Inc. was toying with a possible sale of Oak Hollow Mall and many folks in the community called us sensationalist, negative, etc.,” for publishing such stories. It turns out, he reminded me, that the coverage not only was newsworthy, it has been

proven to be correct. CBL officials listed in a financial report that the mall is about to be sold (closing hasn’t taken place yet) and rumors about who is buying it have been flying ever since. We did get confirmation quickly OPINION that High Point University, subject of many rumors, is Tom not the buyer. A persistent Blount recent rumor has owners of ■■■ a company with major outlet mall complexes as the buyer – but many of the people keeping that alive are the same ones who insisted HPU was the buyer. Most often when readers see something in the Enterprise with which they disagree, they try to discount the value of the information by remarking something akin to “Ah, they’re just trying to sell papers.” Well, duh! Now that the local weather has cooled considerably from the seemingly constant stretch of 90-plus-degree days, many people have returned to what has become the standard conversation-starter the last couple of years: “How’s business?” I catch myself asking that, too. Several times a day, I am asked, “How are things at the Enterprise?” My answer remains the same: “Improving gradually but we need more advertising.” As you might imagine, that causes many who asked the question quickly to change the subject. But for those brave souls who pursue further, I explain I simply can’t understand, especially in a sour economy, why people in business who desperately need to increase traffic in their businesses don’t advertise in their local newspaper – by far the best advertising bargain out there. Think about it! These people want other people to come to them to conduct business, but they don’t want to use the best medium for getting the message out. Go figure! Whenever such things happen, I merely close my eyes, take a deep breath and read to myself: “God, give us grace to accept with serenity the things that cannot be changed, courage to change the things which should be changed, and the wisdom to distinguish the one from the other.” Try it. You’ll like it. Well, some of you will. As I wrote earlier, we can please some of you some of the time ...

Do we Ross is the right man to lead UNC System know our T enemies? W

elcome home and congratulations to all of the American combat troops who’ve recently completed their mission in Iraq. Job well done! I can only imagine what it must be like to serve on the front lines of any war. Safe is the last word I would ever think of. Yet, that’s exactly how I felt in 1991 as my ship was sailing toward the Persian Gulf. The war came and went before we even finished our pre-deployment workups, but I remember thinking that if you have to go to war, the safest place in the world is on an American nuclear-powered aircraft carrier. Our aircraft carriers never travel alone. They’re at the center of a large battle-group that includes high-tech destroyers, cruisers and submarines. They carry around 80 of the world’s most formidable military aircraft, which can be launched at a moment’s notice. And they carry a variety of defensive weapons such as the OPINION Phalanx close-in weapon system Mike which can fire up Hughes to 4,500 rounds ■■■ per minute at incoming missiles. Life on an aircraft carrier hasn’t always been so safe. During World War II, 10 U.S. carriers were sunk, one was damaged beyond repair, and many others sustained damage from torpedoes, aerial bombing and kamikaze attacks. The USS Bismarck Sea was the last U.S. carrier sunk in combat. That was in 1945. That was so long ago that most people don’t realize how good we have it or how bad things can get. I was reminded of this fact by recent news of a military build-up by the Chinese that includes a new anti-ship ballistic missile, the Dong Feng 21D, that could pose a serious threat to U.S. aircraft carriers. A professor at the U.S. Naval War College said, “The U.S. Navy no longer rules the waves as it has since the end of World War II ... sea control cannot be taken for granted anymore.” The professor also compared this threat to the Soviet threat during the Cold War. Our success in the Cold War was partly due to the fact that the Soviets were not irrational. The Chinese also seem to be rational, but how well do we know them? Around 2,500 years ago Sun Tzu wrote “know your enemies and know yourself,” but most Americans seem to be oblivious to this advice, and many of our political leaders seem to be just as clueless. It’s now 17 years after the first World Trade Center bombing, and many Americans still don’t know who our enemy is or why we invaded Iraq and Afghanistan. It’s hard to fault Americans for not understanding the Muslim world when so many of our political leaders hide behind politically correct nonsense. The Obama administration avoids using the term Islamic jihadist, as if peaceful Muslims don’t know who the term refers to. Peaceful Muslims can understand why most Americans don’t want a 13-story mosque at ground zero. They can also understand that the Islamic jihadists of the world would see it as a monumental trophy. Countering China’s military build-up will be expensive and difficult, but one small victory against the jihadists can easily be had for free: Build the mosque somewhere else.

he UNC Board of Governors deserves applause for its selection of Tom Ross as the next president of the UNC System. His character, experience and leadership make him the man for this time. Our state and its people are literally woven throughout the fabric of his life. The Greensboro native grew up in a home where his father worked in one of our state’s core businesses, textiles. Educated at Davidson, Ross attained honors at UNC law and over the next few years taught at the UNC Institute of Government, practiced a bit of law and served as chief of staff for Congressman Robin Britt. Ross was already wise beyond his years when appointed a judge of Superior Court, but over the next 17 years, Judge Ross had to face both the voters as well as the people in sorting out serious legal issues. His maturity and leadership were tested when he was charged with heading a 23 member committee that

established the first structured sentencing guidelines in North Carolina. Ross passed with accolades from all sides. MY SPIN Those most familiar with Tom Ross identify Campbell him as head of ■■■ the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation, one of the largest and most significant philanthropic organizations in the state, indeed the South. Here he became closely connected with individuals and groups wanting to improve life in many diverse ways. His leadership further elevated the stature of this foundation. Davidson College trustees understood the uniqueness of the man they selected their new president three years ago. UNC’s Board of Governors examined Ross’ background, character, experience, seasoned leadership skills and

his unequalled love for and knowledge of this state in making their choice for their new president. Ross will face significant challenges as he takes over our 23-campus system, which is perhaps the single most influential organization in our state, larger than and as complex as any Fortune 500 corporation. With state appropriations of about $2.7 billion (around 12 percent of our total budget, but only a fraction of the total university budget) there are serious financial pressures. For the next few years North Carolina will be in a time when dollars are limited, so Ross will be forced to demand both accountability and efficiency from the system. Competition and demands among the individual institutions are large and growing, along with the ongoing struggles between professors, administrators, researchers, students, disparate boards and support groups. A big sports fan, Ross will face

continuing challenges over whether universities rule athletics or vice versa. Then there is the always significant challenge of accounting to and requesting funding and authority from the Legislature. Perhaps Ross’ biggest challenge will be to provide visionary leadership for a state that desperately needs it. President Emeritus William Friday clearly understood the role our universities can play in our state’s economic, cultural and educational success as well as his leadership role in those areas. Ross is uniquely qualified to assume this mantle and use his position to challenge and help us move forward. We pray for his success because, in no small measure, his success will also be our state’s success.

Dismantling America Lincoln warned us of people who are our greatest danger today


ow did we get to the point where many people feel that the America they have known is being replaced by a very different kind of country, with not only different kinds of policies but very different values and ways of governing? Something of this magnitude does not happen all at once or in just one administration in Washington. What we are seeing is the culmination of many trends in many aspects of American life that go back for years. Neither the Constitution of the United States nor the OPINION institutions set up by that Constitution are enough Thomas to ensure the continuance Sowell of a free, self-governing ■■■ nation. When Benjamin Franklin was asked what members of the Constitution Convention were creating, he replied, “A republic, madam, if you can keep it.” In other words, a constitutional government does not depend on the Constitution but on us. To the extent that we allow clever people to circumvent the Constitution, while dazzling us with rhetoric, the Constitution will become just a meaningless piece of paper, as our freedoms are stolen from us, much as a pick-pocket would steal our wallet while we are distracted by other things. It is not just evil people who would dismantle America. Many people who have no desire to destroy our freedoms simply have their own agendas that are singly or collectively incompatible with the survival of freedom. Someone once said that a democratic society cannot survive for long after 51 percent of the people decide that they want to live off the other 49 percent. Yet

that is the direction in which we are being pushed by those who are promoting envy under its more high-toned alias of “social justice.” Those who construct moral melodramas – starring themselves on the side of the angels against the forces of evil – are ready to disregard the constitutional rights of those they demonize, and to overstep limits put on powers of the federal government set by the Constitution. The outcries of protest in the media, in academia and in politics, when the Supreme Court ruled this year that people in corporations have the same free speech rights as other Americans, are a painful reminder of how vulnerable even the most basic rights are to the attacks of ideological zealots. President Barack Obama said that the court’s decision “will open the floodgates for special interests” – as if all you have to do to take away people’s free speech rights is call them a special interest. It is not just particular segments of the population who are under attack. What is more fundamentally under attack are the very principles and values of American society as a whole. The history of this country is taught in many schools

and colleges as the history of grievances and victimhood, often with the mantra of “race, class and gender.” Television and the movies often do the same. When there are not enough current grievances for them, they mine the past for grievances and call it history. Sins and shortcomings common to the human race around the world are spoken of as failures of “our society.” But American achievements get far less attention – and sometimes none at all. Our “educators,” who cannot educate our children to the level of math or science achieved in most other comparable countries, have time to poison their minds against America. Why? Partly, if not mostly, it is because that is the vogue. It shows you are “with it” when you reject your own country and exalt other countries. Abraham Lincoln warned of people whose ambitions can only be fulfilled by dismantling the institutions of this country, because no comparable renown is available to them by supporting those institutions. He said this 25 years before the Gettysburg Address, and he was speaking of political leaders with hubris, whom he regarded as a greater danger than enemy nations. But such hubris is far more widespread today than just among political leaders. Those with such hubris – in the media and in education, as well as in politics – have for years eroded both respect for the country and the social cohesion of its people. This erosion is what has set the stage for today’s dismantling of America that is now approaching the point of no return.

Obama keeps grabbing for more control BY PHYLLIS PICKLESIMER


resident Obama’s recess appointment of the controversial, fanatical ideologue Dr. Donald Berwick to head Medicare and Medicaid angered both Democrats and Republicans. Obama feared if Americans discovered Berwick’s plans for implementing these departments there would be more calls for the repel of Obamacare. Berwick, who advocates health care rationing, stated he is “romantic” about the British National Health Service. In a recent column, Cal Thomas wrote of headlines in Britain now saying cataract surgery, knee and hip replacement, plus other procedures were to be sharply reduced because of cost cuts.



Berwick looks forward to a “Utopian” future when the government totally controls the health care system. He has stated, “One overdemanding service is prevention, annual physicals, screening tests, and other measures that supposedly (italics mine) help catch disease early.” The Democrats in Congress have slashed $525 billion from Medicare when 30 percent more baby boomers are becoming eligible. If you are 65, what does this mean? Less care and less access to care. Recent articles have told of TARP Inspector General Neil Barofsky’s investigation of the closing of the GM and Chrysler dealerships after

their bailouts and against the advice that the dealerships remain open. How does this relate to health care? An article by journalist William Tate cites Barofsky’s report: “Dealerships were retained because they were … minority- or woman-owned dealerships,” “A disproportional number of Obama-forced closings were of rural dealerships in areas unfriendly to Obama, even though such closures could ‘jeopardize the return to profitability for GM and Chrysler,” “Thousands of jobs were lost unnecessarily, due specifically to Obama’s ‘mandate for shared sacrifice.’ ” With the IRS having unlimited power to examine your bank account, could it happen that participation in activities or political donations

unpopular with Obama could result in denial of care? I have previously stated that Obamacare is not about health care, but a program of government control. Karl Marx believed it was of primary importance for the government to control health care in order to control the people. It appears he and President Obama think alike. One can only wonder if this philosophy was the driving need to pass any health care bill with the details worked out later outside the public eye. The power of life and death is God’s province. For myself and family, I prefer not to have the Berwick/Obama hand on the plug. PHYLLIS PICKLESIMER lives in High Point.

Feeling the pain BP spill trickles down to area businesses MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

WINSTON-SALEM – Carl Brown has noticed a big drop in the number of people buying gas and convenience-store merchandise at BP of Forsyth County since the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico began in April. As the owner and operator of the station, which is on South Hawthorne in Winston-Salem, he estimated that his business has dropped 50 percent from this time a year ago because of a combination of the oil spill and the down economy. He said that most people do not understand that he is an independent operator.

“People assume that when they see the BP sign that’s what’s causing the problem,” he said. “They don’t look at BP Oil. They look at the BP they’re dealing with.” Gary Harris, the executive director of the N.C. Petroleum & Convenience Marketers Association, agreed. In North Carolina, Harris said, there are fewer than 12 gas stations or convenient stores that are owned by the major oil companies. Most are locally owned. “When you don’t purchase from a BP station in your local area, you’re really hurting a small-business owner in that area more than you are BP because that’s how they make their living there in your community,” Harris said. “They signed a contract and sell BP products and are branded BP.” BP owns fewer than 2 percent of the 10,000 stations across the country that carry its brand, but that did not spare independent

station owners from boycotts, protests, vandalism and customer tirades about fouled beaches and oiled wildlife during the months that crude flowed into the Gulf of Mexico. In June, a small group of protestors held up picket signs at the BP gas station at Peters Creek Parkway and Academy Street in Winston-Salem. At the time, owner Salim Andraos said that people should support and protect nature, but he believed that the group was protesting BP and him, a local guy and franchisee. William D. Clarke, who organized the protest, said that they never boycotted or were against the station, its employees or BP. He said they simply were trying to bring attention to the oil spill. “I continue to shop there, and I know everyone of the employees by name and they know me,” Clarke said. Now, the group is trying

to make people aware that although the well has been plugged, there is still cleanup to be done, he said. “It’s not over,” Clarke said. “A lot of times Americans tend to forget real quick and move on.” Instead of protesting these days at stations, the group is using other methods to get its word out, including an e-mail campaign and through social-networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook. Sales remain down at BP stations nationwide. The degrees of loss vary widely, with a few station owners still experiencing severe declines in business and others feeling little or no effect. Tom Kloza, a chief oil analyst for the Oil Price Information Service, said that sales for major BP distributors and retailers tumbled 10 percent to 30 percent early in the crisis, depending on store locations. That has leveled out to an average decline of about 5 percent across the board — a


significant drop, but hardly a fatal blow. Four Brothers convenience stores operated by Beroth Oil Co., based in Winston-Salem, experienced minute effects from the oil spill, said Winfield Beroth, the president of Beroth Oil. Lee Barnes, the president of Family Fare Convenience Stores, said that sales at Family Fares in Winston-Salem that fly the BP flag did decline marginally for about 10 weeks this summer. A couple of regular customers continued to buy food and other items in these stores but told Family Fare employees that they would not buy gas from their stores as long as the BP well was not capped. Barnes said that those customers are back, and fuel sales are now back to normal and growing at all its stores that carry the BP brand. ‘’We are grateful for the support we’ve had in Winston-Salem,” Barnes said.



Passion for antiques turns into vocation BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER

HIGH POINT – An addiction, more often than not, is something that can destroy a person’s life. But Tony Sink’s addiction – to the paintings, lamps, postcards, glass vases and odds and ends that fill shelves in his store – actually evolved into a business on N. Main Street in High Point. “I started this mess in college,” said Sink, owner of Antique and Vintage Furnishings, about attending auctions and buying items in bulk and in lots. “It’s sort of like a drug addiction. You get into it, and you want another fix.” Luckily his addiction hasn’t had the negative impacts that, say, a drug addiction would have on an individual. In fact, it sent him down the road that led him to opening the store at 658 N. Main St. Sink started out as a business teaching major at High Point University and ended up performing accountant and computer work for the first years of his professional career. But antiques were never far from his side as his collection kept growing. He’s worked at antiques stores and formed partnerships with other dealers since the early 1990s. “I did this as a sideline hobby and always worked with someone else in another store,” he said. “When your

collection starts to fill up with so many things you don’t want, you figure someone else out there will want those things. And you just keep going.” It isn’t a business that will make you rich, but, for Sink, it was one that made him happy. That’s why he opened Antique and Vintage Furnishings six years ago and began focusing on the venture full time. “When I asked myself what else I’d like to be doing, it’s this,” he said. “It’s been a hard couple of years for everyone (economically). But when you’re doing something you love, it’s different.” The perks of the job, besides rummaging around for antique treasures, also are an added benefit. The store has been mentioned in several national magazines. It was named as one of 100 favorite shopping places by Cottage Living magazine and one of five best kept secrets in the South by Garden and Gun magazine. Sometimes his shoppers are as unique as the things he finds, he added. “I’ve had the most interesting people to come in,” he said. “That part of it I love, too.” Martha Stewart, for example, has visited the shop twice while in the city for the High Point Market. Sink said he has a large following of designers who buy or rent pieces from him for showrooms during


Tony Sink owns and operates Antique and Vintage Furnishings on N. Main St. the furniture market. The High Point Market is a busy time for Sink, but on any given day, he said his customers are “anyone who cares to wonder in.” “Antiques are not like

food and shelter,” he said. “They aren’t necessary. But people are still interested. And the things that I have, just like people, have their own personalities.” In other words, he’s


comfortable in the mess he’s gotten himself in. “If I won the lottery today, I’d keep running the store until all the money ran out,” he said. | 888-3617

Anyone who sell goods or services on Craigslist should beware. The Securities Investor Protection Corp. is warning that fake checks bearing its name are being used to make purchases on the site. SIPC is an industry group that protects investors when a brokerage firm fails. The scammers try to use the SIPC checks to pay for items advertised on Craigslist. In some cases, individuals try to buy goods for less than the check’s value then ask for the balance in cash, according to SIPC. The group says the checks often arrive in a hand addressed envelope with a return address in Indiana. Most checks are for $5,000 or less but one check was for more than $30,000. The most recent victims had advertised their services as drivers or personal assistants. This warning updates an earlier SIPC alert in May. The group says it has been notified of more than a dozen cases so far. Most of the sellers who received the fake checks didn’t go through with the transaction and instead alerted the SIPC. But the group says at least one person has been victimized so far. SIPC says the fake checks include an account number that is used only for deposits. No SIPC funds have been stolen in the schemes.



Do your dorm room for under $75 NEW YORK (AP) — When textbooks and other obligations soak up so much money as college begins, making a cramped dorm room comfy, colorful and classy can seem like a lost cause, but students and their families don’t have to spend a lot. Experts say a cap of $75 is realistic for students moving into a room furnished with a bed, dresser and desk but nothing else. “You’re not looking for investment pieces,” says Stan Williams, author of “The Find: The Housing Works Book of Decorating,” and a blog called elegantthrifter. “You’re looking for something that fits into a small space and cheap.” Dr. Susan Baxter, assistant professor of marketing and management at LIM, a college based in New York with a focus on fashion and retailing, recommends

starting with information from the college on the room’s dimensions and what is supplied. Next, students should make a list of what’s missing and compare prices on sites like They also can flip through decor magazines and websites that offer vignettes to find styles they like. But before buying anything, check with siblings or friends who are trying to unload items, and check the college’s Facebook page and its marketplace section for items for sale. Check the website for listings of local thrift and consignment shops. Also try, which matches people giving things away with others who want the stuff, Baxter suggests. Here are ways to decorate four areas of your room for less than $75 in all: • Wall decor: Bypass

Williams says not to pay more than $1 per postcard. Better yet, save postcards from friends and family, and don’t spend a dime.

• Lighting: Bright lighting is important for studying, but decorative lights can dress up your quarters in a unique way. Williams recommends buying a lamp at a Goodwill or other thrift store but adding a quirky new shade from a store like Kmart or Wal-Mart or Ikea or even a dollar store. Baxter even recommends using Christmas lights in white or multicolor. • Bedding: Colleges

often sell linens, pillows and bedding, but students can do better on their own. “They’re cheaper at a back-toschool sale, and they’re more individualized,” Baxter says. Unfortunately, buying bedding used isn’t advised because of the continuing spread of bedbugs. Many discounters sell “bed in a bag” sets, including pillows, comforter and sheets, for $60 or less. And make

sure everything’s easily washed to avoid dry cleaning costs. • Furniture: Williams suggests thrift stores and flea markets for non-upholstered furniture like a small book shelf or table for your TV. “You can paint it, strip it,” Williams said. And the old college favorite, milk crates, is still good for extra storage (The Container Store has colorful ones for $9.99).

Regain footing after a co-worker’s misstep BY MILDRED L. CULP WORKWISE FEATURES

Bruce Hurwitz of Hurwitz Strategic Staffing Ltd., in New York City, once worked in a company with a recruiter with an enormous ego. A nursing home HR client liked the format Hurwitz used to propose candidates and asked the co-worker to do the same. He didn’t. She insisted on speaking with Hurwitz, who did the work and landed an interview for the candidate. The other recruiter was worried about losing his commission and called an emergency meeting. He accepted no blame. Informal partnerships are a hallmark of today’s workplace. Professionalism presumes trust. What happens when a coworker missteps, leaving you to pick up the pieces? Based in Berkeley, Calif., speaker Elayne Savage, The Queen of Rejection, advocates taking action immediately. “Avoid the loss of productivity that comes from dwelling, agonizing and taking it personally,” she says.

INTENTIONALITY What did the co-worker intend? Licensed psychologist Steven Lurie of Lurie Executive Develop-

ment Inc., in Lawrence, N.Y., is an executive coach who helps people understand the motivations of others and how to respond appropriately to the company’s culture. Before taking action, consider whether this behavior is typical or atypical, whether you’ve seen it before, Lurie advises. Do a little investigating. “It’s always prudent to find out if you are the first person who’s ever experienced this kind of treatment,” says Katherine Crowley of K Squared Enterprises Inc., in New York City. When you talk it over, “make the person understand exactly why you’re upset,” Lurie suggests. “Decide whether they ‘get it.’ ” Listen for a sincere apology. Crowley thinks that you’re likely to receive one. She observes that “bringing the misstep to the colleague’s attention will usually result in profound apologies and a conscious attempt to rectify the situation.” The person who intends to harm you “usually denies any wrongdoing or tries to frame it in a way that minimizes the offense,” she continues. What about the individual who gives conflicting signals with a seemingly sincere apology? While

the first may seek harm, the second, according to Lurie, is out for himself. Lurie points out that “the ability to learn from the experience is essential. Some people still don’t get it, which means you know what to expect. Be very aware of the risk you take on when you work with them.” He adds that if the same hazards recur, you must accept the person as is, regardless of your need for him to act differently. Hurwitz reports that the firm did what Lurie recommends – structuring the work so that it met the firm’s needs. Meanwhile, everyone “made the other recruiter feel like he was still part of the team but were certain that he would not be able to produce,” according to Hurwitz. When co-workers are well-meaning and able to learn, he comments, “helping them fix the error teaches them what not to do and how to avoid such mistakes in the future. More importantly, it builds team work. And most importantly, I always tell people that it is never the crime that gets you. It’s always the coverup.” However, Lurie believes that cutting off from the person isn’t an option, even if you find the behavior extremely objection-


Executive coach Steven Lurie maintains that, with a little wisdom, you can find ways to keep working with a co-worker who’s out for himself. Lurie is a licensed psychologist at the Lawrence, N.Y., Lurie Executive Development Inc. able: “Ending a working relationship is likely to be counterproductive. Although a few people might pat you on the back, most will perceive you as overreacting or retaliatory. This will put your behavior in the spotlight. Stay engaged while minimiz-

ing your exposure to the undermining behavior.” In other words, don’t retreat from your work or social interactions. The obligation to complete your tasks and maintain good working relationships doesn’t slip away. Be on guard in relation

to the co-worker, Lurie advises: “Keep in mind who you are dealing with; act accordingly; and don’t take it personally.” DR. MILDRED L. CULP is an award-winning journalist. Email questions or comments to

Rams electrify Simeon N

o matter the level of competition, there is something electrifying about the start of football season. And so it was on the college level for the first time in 60 years in High Point since then-High Point College gave up on the sport. In those days, the Panthers played where their soccer stadium is now. The venue this time was Simeon Stadium, thanks to Winston-Salem State being unable to use its home at Bowman Gray Stadium because of a scheduling conflict. The Rams, thanks to the SPORTS relationship of athletics director Bill Hayes with some of Greer the city’s movers and shakers, Smith created the Furniture City ■■■ Gridiron Classic for its meeting with Virginia Union as they kicked off the 2010 football season along with a number of Division II teams. Granted, the game wasn’t on the level of Michigan-Ohio State or even UNC-N.C. State. But the effort that went into staging the game paid off as members of the WSSU athletic teams manned the gates and the concession stands and helped handle the parking. They were plenty busy as the roads leading to the High Point Athletic Complex became jammed with cars as a crowd that appeared to be in the neighborhood of 8,000 filled the home side, about half of the visitor side and included fans on the bank that overlooks the south end zone. The Ram faithful came in as passionate as any supporter of the Sooners or Longhorns or Wolverines. The play was as passionate as well. In the first quarter, Rams wide receiver Tevin Brantley was picked up and slammed to the ground as he attempted to get a first down inside the Union 25. On the ensuing Union possession, defensive back Alton Keaton blitzed and sacked Panther quarterback Aris McClone-English with authority. Some of the Ram faithful came by car. Others came by bus. They came to see Connell Maynor’s debut


Winston-Salem State receiver Patrick Terry was overthrown on this play against Virginia Union during the first half of the Furniture City Gridiron Classic at Simeon Stadium. The Rams won 47-13. as head coach and Octavious Hawkins’ debut as quarterback. They came to see the Rams return to Division II and the CIAA, brushing aside the college’s decision to drop down from Division I. They had plenty to cheer about as the Rams mixed run and pass and scored 17 points in the first quarter on the way to a 27-0 halftime lead, tallying on five of six possessions in radical departure from their anemic 12 points per game last season. They watched the Rams roll up 214 yards while holding the Panthers to 118 in the first two quarters. They watched Hawkins launch a 26-yard touchdown pass to a wideopen Dominique Fitzgerald for a score. They watched Fitzgerald set up another

Pitched battle The 25th Furniture City Classic soccer tournament kicked into high gear on Saturday at five sites across High Point. The action included the Triad Elite Soccer Club of Winston-Salem (red jersey) against the 1993 Piedmont Triad Football Club Ladies Black at Phillips Soccer Complex. The event concludes today.

score with a 47-yard return to the Panthers’ 50. They saw Union’s deepest possession of the opening half end when Keaton stripped McClone-English at the Rams 10 and Juan Corders return the fumble to Panther 40, setting up Landen Thayer’s 36-yard field goal as time expired. That put them in the mood to rock to the Rams’ marching band during the intermission. Whether the game continues in future years is undecided. WSSU athletics director Bill Hayes said this week that the school is obligated to play in Bowman Gray Stadium unless a conflict arises. Whatever happens, Saturday night’s game was a success. | 888-3556

ATLANTA (AP) – Tim Hudson struck out a career-high 13 and Martin Prado equaled his career best with five RBIs, powering the Atlanta Braves to a 12-3 rout of the Florida Marlins on Saturday night. Matt Diaz and Eric Hinske also homered for the Braves, who scored six runs in the second and snapped a four-game losing streak, their longest since April. They maintained a two-game lead in the NL East over Philadelphia, which won 3-1 at San Diego. Hudson (15-5), who has come back from major elbow surgery with perhaps the best season of his career, struck out the first two Florida hitters to prevent a repeat of Friday night’s debacle, when Tommy Hanson served up back-to-back homers to start the game. Those first two Ks gave Hudson 1,500 for his career, earning a long cheer from the Turner Field crowd. He stepped off the mound, tipped his hat and smiled as the milestone was noted on the giant videoboard behind him. There were plenty more where that came from. Hudson closed with a flourish, fanning the side in

the seventh to eclipse his previous career best of 12 strikeouts. This was certainly out of character for the right-hander, who is known for his sinker and normally relies on ground balls for outs. This was just the 11th time in 337 career starts that he’s put up double-digit Ks. Florida went down swinging all but once against Hudson. The Braves blew this one open early, sending 11 hitters to the plate in the second against Ricky Nolasco (14-9). Prado had a bases-loaded walk to account for his first RBI of the night. He added a two-run single in the third and a two-run homer in the seventh, equaling the five RBIs he had at Milwaukee on May 10. Diaz, making a rare start against a right-handed pitcher, led off the second with a homer over the centerfield wall. Alex Gonzalez beat out an infield hit, Melky Cabrera singled and Hudson bunted them over to second and third. Nolasco was replaced at the start of the third, having surrendered seven hits and three walks in his shortest start of the season. In contrast to Hudson, he didn’t strike out anyone.

he NASCAR Cup Series enjoys its final open date of the season this weekend. I’m sure teams are working non-stop anyway with the Chase for the Championship set to start in just three weeks. But before we arrive at the 10-race Chase, we have a little regular-season business to attend to at Atlanta and Richmond. Actually, it’s not much business in terms of the 12-driver Chase field. Eleven of the 12 spots have either been



Hudson’s 13 Ks lead Braves



clinched already or all but sewn up. Kevin Harvick and Jeff Gordon are in, while Kyle Busch, Carl Edwards, Denny Hamlin, Tony Stewart, Jeff Burton, Matt Kenseth, Jimmie Johnson, Kurt Busch and Greg Biffle look like safe bets to make the Chase barring a major collapse. That leaves the 12th and final spot up for grabs. Clint Bowyer currently has it with 2,920 points. He is 135 points behind 11thplace Biffle.

Jamie McMurray ranks 13th in the standings, 100 points behind Bowyer. Mark Martin ranks 14th and trails Bowyer by 101 points. Realistically, we have a three-horse race for the final Chase berth. That could produce some drama, but it’s not like eight guys fighting for four spots. Perhaps the Chase itself will yield more playoff-like excitement.

East wins option showdown

Bison offense hard to halt


TRINITY – High school football is often a contrast of styles: high-powered offenses vs. dominant defenses, overpowering ground games pitted against prolific aerial attacks, and so on. Nothing could have been farther from the case Friday night at Trinity’s football stadium affectionately known as “The Dog Pit.” The Bulldogs were hosting their first game since a tough loss to Ledford in Week 1, against an East Davidson team trying to overcome its own early setback. East would find the win column by an 18-12 count, but it took two overtimes to decide it. The two squads – both of whom run variations of the triple-option offense – attempted to establish the ground game from the outset. As could be expected, the offenses found precious little room to run against defenses well-schooled in defending the run. The first half was marked by a handful of gems on defense and special teams, starting with Jordan Johnson’s interception of Golden Eagles’ quarterback Taylor Warren on the first play of the game. That play set the tone, as Trinity was able to cash in with an 8-yard TD run from Colin Stout. On the ensuing kickoff, an 89-yard kickoff return by Justin Rutledge set up the first of Allen Godbolt’s 3-yard TD plunges to tie the score at 6. Stout fumbled on the first play of Trinity’s next possession to give the Eagles the ball on the Bulldogs’ 40-yard line, leading to



East Davidson’s Justin Rutledge (5) tries to shake off the tackle of Trinity’s Shaquai Wright during Friday’s 18-12 Golden Eagle overtime victory in Trinity. another brief drive punctuated by Godbolt in the end zone. Trinity answered with an 11-play, 54-yard drive that ended with a 1-yard TD run from quarterback Rhyne Kivett to tie the score going into halftime. The early whirlwind of offense gave way to a long defensive slugfest the rest of the way. Bounding toward the finish, East was able to utilize its size advantage along the front line to exploit an undermanned Bulldog defense that finally wore down. “That helped a whole lot,” Eagles coach Bryan Lingerfelt said. “With their players going both ways (playing both offense and defense), our line was able to step up to the challenge.” East will try to build the momentum this week at North Davidson, while Trinity seeks to bounce back at West Stokes.


All riled up Thomasville’s Quin Riley enjoys some open running room Friday at Mount Airy. The Bulldogs improved to 2-0 for the year with a 21-14 victory.

HIGH POINT – High Point Central doesn’t see an offense as diverse as its own very often. That will change a little this week. After dismantling Grimsley 24-7 Friday night at Simeon Stadium, the Bison are looking ahead to a showdown with Lexington on Thursday. The Yellow Jackets come in 1-1 after losing 15-13 to Concord on Friday, but Lexington advanced to the N.C. High School Athletic Association 2A state semifinals last season thanks to an offense that likes to spread defenses out and create open space for its athletes. Central certainly did that in the first half Friday against Grimsley. At the half, quarterback Drew Adams was 10-of-18 for 137 yards and a touchdown. His two favorite targets, Derek Grant and Lashuran Monk, hauled in several nice passes even when they weren’t open. Bison coach Wayne Jones wasn’t surprised. “Those guys have been playing together for four years,” Jones said. “We knew this was going to be a good group. It’s very important to be able to have that ability to throw it up there and go get the jump ball.” The second half wasn’t nearly as glamorous for Central. Despite strong field position and racking up plenty of yards, the Bison failed to score after the break. Jones left Adams in the game in the fourth quarter, and the quarterback took a couple of shots while getting sacked and facing heavy pressure. And Central only finished with 87 yards on the ground – not the kind of balance Jones hoped for. Central pounded the Jackets 31-7 a year ago in Lexington.

Look what I found: A pass from Airyn Willis to Raymond Bridges (3) slips through Eastern Guilford defensive backs Derrick Whitsett (left) and Dion Cummings, leading to a 68-yard touchdown. Southwest Guilford went on to a 28-20 victory Friday.

HIGH POINT â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The T. Wingate Andrews football team finds itself in a familiar situation after two weeks of play. The season has begun much the same way as in 2009, when the Raiders struggled in the opening two contests before righting the ship at midseason and ultimately achieving a respectable finish. That is what the team is tasked with yet again after dropping Thursday nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contest 28-12 to Charlotte Country Day and a talented host of players led by Morgan Roberts, the Buccaneersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; gifted quarterback. The 6foot-4 senior went into the locker room a bit befuddled at halftime with a 7-6 lead, but emerged from the break prepared to wreak havoc on a Raiders defense that did everything in its power to contain him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do what we thought they were going to do,â&#x20AC;? Roberts explained of the lackluster first half of offense. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had a great game plan, but they came out and blitzed us pretty good. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seeing the field very well (in the first half), but we game-planned a little bit at halftime and from there, we made some good calls.â&#x20AC;? Playmakers from both sides were featured in a very aesthetically pleasing game. Andrewsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Mark Johnson got the crowd on its feet toward the end of the first quarter with what would have

been an explosive 98-yard kickoff return. Unfortunately for Raidersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fans, the gain was nullified by penalty. It was in the third quarter, however, that both return games started tearing up the well-manicured surface at A.J. Simeon Stadium. After the opening drive of the second half came to a halt for Andrews with just less than nine minutes to go, the Bucsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Lee Harrison ran a punt back 68 yards for his teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second touchdown. Seconds later, it was Johnson who took off again for a 91-yard return on the ensuing kickoff. This time, the score counted and the Raiders pulled to within 14-12, but a blocked punt left Charlotte Country Day with just 2 yards to pound home its third touchdown. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They made the plays when they needed to, especially that blocked punt,â&#x20AC;? Raiders coach Rodney McKoy said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re playing pretty good defensively, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just got to limit the big plays.â&#x20AC;? Finally a back-breaking, 45-yard strike from Roberts to Harrison in the fourth quarter put Andrews on the mat for a final time to give McKoy the opportunity to motivate his team once again to revive itself from an earlyseason slump. The first shot comes Friday at Simeon against Grimsley. The Raiders got that first win against the Whirlies last year in a 14-6 decision. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grimsley team will enter with an 0-2 mark.

aymond Bridges approached the sideline. The oncoming defender from Eastern Guilford approached the sideline. Yes, Bridges did end up going out of bounds to end the 12-yard carry â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but not before lowering his shoulder and delivering a blow that left the runner, his teammates and the home fans buzzing with excitement. Bridges enjoyed a couple of long runs Friday night and finished with a relatively modest 56 yards on the ground. Then there was Aaron Fletcher and his 55 yards on 14 carries. And Larry Edwards, who finished at 64 yards on eight rushes. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget about Braxton Dayeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one rushing attempt â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a 24-yard jaunt to the end zone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not hiding what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to do with them,â&#x20AC;? Southwest Guilford coach Scott Schwarzer said after his teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 28-20 victory. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ray Bridges, Fletcher, Braxton Daye â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they did a good job for us. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got some weapons.â&#x20AC;? Southwest completed just one pass in three attempts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a week after going 0-for-1 in a 29-0 victory over Southeast Guilford â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but the throw-and-catch at least went for a game-changing 68-yard touchdown. Remarkably, that Airyn Willis heave to Bridges was the biggest play of the game for Willis. The Cowboysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; most recognized athlete, a Georgia Tech commitment, rushed a mere 10 times for 16 yards. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We knew coming in people were going to try to take Airyn away from us,â&#x20AC;? Schwarzer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Airyn is unselfish, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still learning this offense, too.â&#x20AC;? Southwestâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new option attack allowed Willis to gain 123 yards in the season-opener. Against Eastern, though, the Cowboys were content to pound the middle with the likes of Fletcher and Daye while catching the corners with Bridges and Edwards. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They just expect Airyn to get it

and we surprise them,â&#x20AC;? Fletcher offered. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Airyn gets his carries, though. Everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happy â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m happy.â&#x20AC;? There were plenty of smiles to go around Friday as Southwest started SPORTS 2-0 for a second straight year. The Cowboys Steve punted just two times, Hanf outgained the Wildcats â&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  265 to 221 and at one point owned a 21-point lead before watching Eastern creep closer in the end. The outcome never was in doubt â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not with big guys up front Kevin Stanfield, Ryan Bristow, Bryan Hatchell, Quin Peeler and Rayshawn Williams opening big holes all night. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our offense, we just grind it and grind it,â&#x20AC;? Fletcher said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Eventually the defense gets tired and we break some.â&#x20AC;? Added Bridges: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our offensive line just blocked for us. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the best weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had in years.â&#x20AC;? The best could be yet to come for Southwest, which started 3-0 a year ago and seemed on the verge of its first winning season since 1997 before faltering down the stretch. That 4-7 final record, however, featured a stagnant offense, which led to this seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s changes. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to think that this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game at Ledford and next Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home contest with Andrews prior to the bye week will feature fewer kinks needing to be ironed out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People have to understand, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve run this offense now for two games,â&#x20AC;? Schwarzer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We ran the ball pretty well for most of the game.â&#x20AC;? All the Cowboys ran it well. Around, between â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and through â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the Eastern defense.

NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; There will be no marathon matches for Nicolas Mahut at the U.S. Open. The Frenchman who lost a 70-68 fifth set to John Isner at Wimbledon in the longest match ever fell Saturday in qualifying at Flushing Meadows. The 6-4, 3-6, 6-3 loss to Julio Silva means Mahut will not be in the main draw for singles, though heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going home quite yet. The 161st-ranked Mahut plans to play doubles. He also wants to watch Isner play because he hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen the Greensboro native since their 11-hour, 5-minute match in June.

WILLIAMSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; FOOT-FAULT OFFICIAL BACK AT OPEN The line judge who called a foot fault on Serena Williams that sent the star into a tirade during last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s U.S. Open semifinals will be officiating at this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event. In a statement issued to The Associated Press on Saturday, tournament organizers said Shino Tsurubuchi â&#x20AC;&#x153;is a world class official and we are confident in her abilities.â&#x20AC;? The statement continued: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Consistent with U.S. Open officiating assignments, Ms. Tsurubuchi will officiate in both menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s matches, and will rotate through the various on-court officiating positions.â&#x20AC;? Williams, who leads active women with 13 Grand Slam singles titles, with-

drew last week from this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s U.S. Open, which begins Monday. She said she is not completely recovered from July 15 surgery to repair cuts on her right foot. Tsurubuchi was working the baseline late in the 2009 U.S. Open semifinal between then-defending champion Williams and Kim Clijsters. Tsurubuchi called a foot fault on a second serve by Williams, resulting in a double-fault that moved Clijsters one point from victory. The ruling prompted a profanity-laced, racketbrandishing, finger-pointing tirade by Williams. Williams earlier had been give a code violation warning, so the chair umpire awarded a penalty point to Clijsters because of the outburst â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and, because it happened to come on match point, that ended the match at 6-4, 7-5.

Nesbitt sparks Yellow Jacketsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; high hopes ATLANTA (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; He prefers to be called Joshua now. He figures it sounds like someone whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all grown up, like a guy whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ready to head out into the real world. No matter the name, Joshua â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not Josh anymore â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Nesbitt still holds the same vital roles for defending Atlantic Coast Conference champion Georgia Tech. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the quarterback in an option offense. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the guy who makes it all go. And heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably one of the most valuable players in all of college football, especially on a team that lost its leading rusher and top receiver to the NFL. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll play as well as he did last year,â&#x20AC;? coach Paul Johnson quipped, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll call him whatever he wants.â&#x20AC;? Nesbitt ranked fifth in the ACC in rushing with 1,037 yards, a total that included 18 touchdowns.

He also passed for 1,701 yards, accounting for 10 more TDs. But his value to the team stretched beyond mere numbers, as impressive as those were. In the option, Nesbitt is at the center of every play. He studies the defense at the line, takes the

snap and makes a split-second decision on where the weakness lies â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and, therefore, who should get the ball. Sometimes, he hands it off. Other times, he pitches it out. Plenty of times, he just keeps it himself. Nesbittâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s importance will likely be even more profound this season, with the Yellow Jackets coming off their first outright ACC title since 1990. Georgia Tech (11-3 last season) will have to replace running back Jonathan Dwyer, the ACCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third-leading rusher with 1,395 yards, and receiver Demaryius Thomas, who turned a mere 46 receptions into 1,154 yards and eight TDs. Both gave up their senior season to enter the NFL draft. Dwyerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s replacement is Anthony Allen, a wingback last season. Johnson brought in former Virginia coach Al Groh as defensive coordinator.

Terps, Friedgen prepare for comeback in 2010 COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Coming off a 2-10 season and with only two years left on his contract, Maryland coach Ralph Friedgen feels pressure to win in 2010. Not necessarily for himself, but for the players whose hard work has gone unrewarded. After the Terrapins dropped their final seven games to finish with double-digit losses for the first time in school history, there was speculation that Friedgen would be fired. He was ultimately given the opportunity to make things right this year, the penultimate season before the 63-yearold coach is slated to step down to allow the ascention of offensive coordinator James Franklin to the head post. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Maybe Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be two years here and four years somewhere else. I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put an end line on me,â&#x20AC;? Freidgen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Maybe some other people have, but I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m planning on winning for the next two years, and then weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see what happens.â&#x20AC;? For as long as he remains a coach, and perhaps for the rest of his life, Friedgen wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget last season. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why this year is so important. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The sense of urgency I have is to get this bad taste out of my mouth,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Two-and-10 is the worst record Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had since Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been a coach. It will be tremendous enjoyment for me to see these kids succeed, for their sake because I know how much they put into the season. The sense of urgency is to see them reap the rewards of their effort and to guide them through that. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To me, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coaching is all about. To be in the tough times and then come through those tough times and enjoy the good times again. This team has paid the price.â&#x20AC;? Maryland had only 14 seniors last year and was vicitimized by inexperience. This squad has only 16 seniors, but the underclassmen who learned under fire have returned with an improved mindset. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve still got a lot of young kids,â&#x20AC;? Friedgen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The difference is theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not walking out there starry-eyed think-

Now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about winning Division I football.â&#x20AC;? The offensive line is a microcosm of what Friedgen is talking about. Standouts Phil Costa and Bruce Campbell are gone, but three starters return and two were used as spot-starters last year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Another year wiser, and a year better,â&#x20AC;? sophomore tackle R.J. Dill said. The key to the offense will be quarterback Jamarr Robinson, who took over for injured Chris Turner late last season. Turner was a dropback passer and Robinson can run, which gives Franklin more options in drawing up plays. If wide receivers Torrey Smith and Adrian Cannon canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get open, then Robinson has the legs to make something out of a busted play. A defense that was tentative at times last year under first-year coordinator Don Brown now has an overall feeling of confidence. The Terps feel certain they can make good on the slogan instituted by the ticket sales department: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Be there for the comeback.â&#x20AC;? And it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter that the Atlantic Coast Conference media picked Maryland to finish last in the Atlantic Division. A win over Navy in the opener would go a long way toward boosting the Terrapins confidence.

Ambrose takes Nationwide pole MONTREAL (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Marcos Ambrose again took care of business in Nationwide qualifying at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. All he has to do now is finally take advantage of starting up front at the tricky 14-turn layout. Ambrose turned a fast lap of 97.079 mph Saturday to edge Canadian star Jacques Villeneuveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 96.924 mph and take the pole for todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nationwide Series race. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve led more laps here than anybody else and havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been to Victory Lane,â&#x20AC;? said Ambrose, who won the pole a year ago, led 60 of 76 laps over the 2.7-mile circuit, and was passed by Carl Edwards in the final turn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The race tomorrow could go any way. This race is hard on equipment, hard on tempers.â&#x20AC;? Joey Logano, who finished second to Ambrose at Watkins Glen three weeks ago, qualified third at 96.650 mph, while defending race winner Carl Edwards was fourth at 96.344 mph. Series points leader Brad Keselowski will start eighth.

Qualifying was divided into eight groups, with assignments based on practice times from the first session, which Villeneuve and Edwards topped with identical speeds. Villeneuve and Ambrose kept leapfrogging one another on each of their three laps before Ambrose finally won. Villeneuve, who also qualified second at Road America in mid-June, thought he might have a shot at the top spot, and so did his fans, who cheered loudly before Ambrose spoiled the celebration. Logano made the trip north on a rare off weekend for Sprint Cup, and he made the most of it despite going off course and scaring some wildlife more than once in his three qualifying laps. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m pretty pumped up,â&#x20AC;? Logano said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;... I was trying to get acclimated to this track again. Our first lap was terrible. I went off the racetrack and woke up all the groundhogs. I just need a little bit more to get where these guys go. Maybe when they start beating their fenders Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be ready to go.â&#x20AC;?

Victorino propels Phillies past Padres THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN DIEGO â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Shane Victorino had two of Philadelphiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s three hits, including a go-ahead triple off Jon Garland in the seventh inning that helped the Phillies to their second straight win against the NL West-leading San Diego Padres, 3-1 on Saturday.

JOLIET, Ill. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Considering just how well his previous weekend went, the last thing Kyle Busch wanted was a week away from racing. Busch managed to stay busy â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and keep winning â&#x20AC;&#x201C; on a rare off weekend for NASCARâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

ISTANBUL â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Kevin Durant scored 14 points and got the United States started on a dominant second-quarter stretch in a 106-78 victory over Croatia on Saturday in its opening game at the world championship. Eric Gordon made four 3-pointers and had 16 points to lead the

Americans, who turned a close game into a blowout by limiting the Croatians to six points in the second quarter. It was an impressive start for a U.S. team that came to Turkey without any players who helped them win the gold medal in the 2008 Olympics. All 12 players scored for the Americans, as coach Mike Krzyze-

wski was able to give his starters plenty of rest with the U.S. playing its three toughest Group B games in the first three days of the tournament. Bojan Bogdanovic scored 17 points and Marko Popovic added 16 for Croatia, which once was among the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best teams but hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t played in the world championship since winning a bronze medal in 1994.

Laird seizes control at The Barclays PARAMUS, N.J. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Martin Laird biggest goal at The Barclays was to play well enough to reach the second round of the FedEx Cup playoffs. Now he can aim a lot higher.

Laird was at 12-under 201. A victory for the 27-year-old Scot would move him to No. 1, assuring him a spot in all four majors next year.

2010 U.S. Open at a glance

NEW YORK (AP) — A look at the U.S. Open, the year’s last Grand Slam tennis tournament: Surface: Hard courts. Site: USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. Schedule: Play begins Monday. The women’s singles final is Sept. 11; the men’s singles final is Sept. 12. No. 1-Seeded Man: Rafael Nadal of Spain. No. 1-Seeded Woman: Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark. 2009 Men’s Singles Champion: Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina, who will not defend his title in 2010 after having wrist surgery in May. 2009 Women’s Singles Champion: Kim Clijsters of Belgium, the first mother to win a Grand Slam title since 1980. Last Year: Because of rain, both singles finals were pushed back a day, with the women finishing on Sunday, and the men on Monday. Del Potro came back to beat five-time reigning champion Roger Federer of Switzerland 3-6, 7-6 (5), 4-6, 7-6 (4), 6-2 for his first Grand Slam title. It’s the only time Federer has lost to someone other than Rafael Nadal in a major final. Clijsters won her second U.S. Open championship by beating Wozniacki 7-5, 6-3. It was Clijsters’ first Grand Slam tournament after taking 2 1/2 years off to start a family. Missing in 2010: In addition to del Potro, only the third reigning men’s champion since 1968 to skip the following U.S. Open, threetime women’s champion Serena Williams withdrew from the tournament, saying she is not recovered fully after surgery for cuts on her right foot in July. Williams is the first No. 1 woman to miss the U.S. Open since the women’s rankings began in 1975. Two-time champion Justine Henin is out for the season after injuring her elbow at Wimbledon. Noteworthy: Nadal is trying to complete a career Grand Slam by winning the U.S. Open for the first time. He has won the past two major tournaments, the French Open and Wimbledon, to raise his total to eight Grand Slam championships. Nadal never has made it past the semifinals at Flushing Meadows. Prize Money: Total is about $22.7 million, with $1.7 million each to the men’s and women’s singles champions — plus the possibility of bonus money for the top three finishers in the U.S. Open Series of tuneup tournaments. TV: ESPN2, Tennis Channel, CBS. New on TV: For the first time, microphones will be in the players’ guest boxes at Arthur Ashe Stadium, with sound bites broadcast on tape delay. Also, 3-D telecasts will make their U.S. Open debut on DirecTV. Online:

A. Andruw Jones.



Considering a facelift to keep truckinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; A

few years back, I wrote a story about Uncle Evander and his old truck. It seems a friend had just purchased a brand new Land Rover and was bragging on how the truck would go anywhere. Evander interrupted his praise of the vehicle by offering a wager of $5,000 that his old beat up four wheel drive pickup would go where the new Land Rover wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. When the friendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outrage peaked at such a preposterous assumption, Evander let him off the hook by explaining that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d drive his old rusty truck off the dam into a farm pond for $5,000 since he could replace it for $3,000. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something to be said for not having to worry about tree limb scratches or door dings. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care for brand new, out of the box, stuff. I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s some kind of reverse vanity that makes me not want to look too spiffy. I like a nice clean shirt, but if the collar is a little worn thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OK. A brand new fishing rod or shotgun combined with a new coat and waders always makes me think the guy using it might be a greenhorn. Things that are scuffed up a bit require less worry; they already have the new worn off. Not long ago, a guy told me a story about a welder who bought a brand new truck. He drove it home and then went into his shop. He took a chipping hammer and took a single whack at the front bottom edge of the bed. Looking up, he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to worry about the first dent.â&#x20AC;? My old Chevy truck has been a winner. It now has over 180,000 miles and

itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still quiet, smooth, and comfortable. Ernie and I, and now Larry and I, have enjoyed traveling and occasionally living in it for almost ten years now. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s somewhat worse for the wear. The SPORTS transmission partially went out on the beach Dick at Cape Hatteras. I lost Jones reverse and second â&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  gear. We limped home, though and we avoided a wrecker. The transmission is replaced, the engine is still good, and it drives like a new one. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had to replace all the brake lines due to rust from spending so many nights on the beach. They were rusting through at points where the beach sand was trapped around them along with salt and moisture. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a dent in the right rear quarter panel where some unidentified, white haired old man forgot the trailer was behind the truck and jackknifed when he backed up. The rocker panels on the bottom of the cab have rusted through on both sides and there are numerous dents and scratches from dog toenails, tree limbs, installing and removing the camper, and a four-wheeler that ran into the truck when Cherie was learning to operate it. I guess Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m hurting my chances should I decide to sell it. The truck is remarkably like me; serviceable but a little worn by its adventures and the elements. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m happy as a clam with it except itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a little embarrassing when I show up at an event in



If you have a new truck and canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find a stale cigar/wet dog air freshener, I have just the thing for you. Hoppeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s of the famous Hoppeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s No. 9 bore cleaner has come out with an air freshener that smells exactly like you just cleaned your shotgun. I love the smell of Hoppeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and sometimes when Cherie wants to put me in a romantic mood, she puts a little Hoppeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s behind her ears. Great smell. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; DICK JONES

a vehicle that looks like it was drug across Arizona behind a low flying 747. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m thinking facelift. I could just buy another truck but I like this one; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like an old friend. It has a familiar stale cigar/wet dog smell that takes years to get just right. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true the new trucks have a few conveniences that my old truck doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have but then, I have a lot of attachments for the old truck and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have to get used to all kinds of changes in where I keep things. There are those whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d say my old truck drinks more gas and pollutes the air more than a new truck but I suspect there would be more net pollution from building a new truck than there would from driving this one a few more years. I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big problem we have these days. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use anything up, we just go out and get a new one and throw the old one away. You could argue that the new products are more efficient

and pollute less but if we built things to last and be fixed when they broke, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be a lot better off. Consider lawn mowers. You can buy a new one for about the same as it costs to repair an old one. No one fixes the old mower, they just throw it away. The cost of repair is partially due to the fact that modern products arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t made to fix, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re made to replace. If the lawn mower costs twice as much to buy and was easier to fix the net cost would be the same but we wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use up all the raw material. Cadillac now makes a car with a wonderful engine. The engine is lightweight, very efficient, and powerful. The problem with this engine is that, if it has a problem with one valve, you have to throw it away and buy a whole new engine. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s put together in a way that it canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be fixed. One valve that cost about $20 goes bad and you need a new $6,000 engine. I believe we need to rethink our priorities. No, I think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll just fix up the old truck and drive it a while. New paint, seat covers, maybe dress it up with a little camo trim. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m starting to like this idea; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be fun. Only problem is, once Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve fixed it up I may be afraid to drive it off the dam into a farm pond.

Making a promise With cancer taking over her body, Michelle Causey wanted to commit herself to her true love



New research accepted by the Journal of Molecular Recognition confirms that a revolutionary technology developed at Wake Forest University will slash years off the time it takes to develop drugs – bringing vital new treatments to patients much more quickly. Lab-on-Bead uses tiny beads studded with “pins” that match a drug to a disease marker in a single step, so researchers can test an infinite number of possibilities for treatments all at once. When Labon-Bead makes a match, it has found a viable treatment for a specific disease – speeding up drug discovery by as much as 10,000 times and cutting out years of testing and re-testing in the laboratory. “It helps the most interesting new drugs work together to stick their heads up above the crowd,” said Jed C. Macosko, Ph.D., an associate professor of Physics at Wake Forest and primary inventor of the Lab-on-Bead technology. Macosko and Martin Guthold, Ph.D., an associate professor of physics at Wake Forest and the co-inventor of Lab-on-Bead, will work with the biotechnology startup NanoMedica Inc. to test how drug companies will use the new tool. The company has relocated to Winston-Salem from New Jersey. One of the targets the research team has focused on is a breast cancer cell called HER2.



ichelle Bass Causey and her longtime beau, Bryan Ruff, had spoken often of getting married, but they hadn’t followed through. “We had talked about it a lot – we already had the rings – but we just never got around to it,” says Causey, a 38-year-old former Thomasville resident now living in Canton, N.C. Causey’s health was one reason for the delay, and ironically, it was also the reason the couple ended up having a commitment ceremony last weekend – because Causey sensed she was running out of time. Causey, who attended East Davidson High School, was diagnosed with cervical cancer in July 2009. Following a radical hysterectomy and the removal of 48 lymph nodes – all of which tested negative – Causey and her doctors thought she was in the clear. She even received a clean bill of health at her six-month checkup. The very next day, though, Causey began experiencing severe pain in her side. Doctors suspected her gallbladder, but an ultrasound revealed

’It was just a gorgeous ceremony, and Michelle was a radiant bride. And it kept her mind off of chemo for a while.’ Kim Bass Michelle Causey’s aunt lesions on her liver. The cancer had spread to her liver and bones, and her prognosis – despite undergoing chemotherapy – is dismal. “The doctor says the chemo won’t get rid of it – it will just prolong things,” Causey says. Causey began thinking about her relationship with Huff. The couple had gotten engaged before her diagnosis, and even though they’d been sharing a house they bought together three years ago, she wanted to follow through with a ceremony before it was too late. A simple commitment ceremony – avoiding all of the legal red tape a marriage would require – would suffice for the couple. However, finances – including mounting medical bills – prohibited the couple from having the ceremony. That’s when Causey’s aunt, Kim Bass of Lexington, stepped in and found Unity, A Journey of Hope, a nonprofit organization that grants SPECIAL | HPE


Michelle Causey and Bryan Ruff committed themselves to each other Aug. 21.



hen Kim Bass began looking for an organization to provide her niece’s commitment ceremony, the options were few. “There are organizations that grant wishes for terminally ill children, but not many that do it for terminally ill adults,”

says Bass, of Lexington. So when she found Unity, A Journey of Hope – and saw how the organization’s efforts blessed her niece, Michelle Bass Causey – she came to a decision. “We need a Unity chapter here in North Carolina,” she says. “And hopefully, it will be here in the Thomasville area.” Unity, based in Vanderbilt,

Pa., grants wishes to individuals 18 and older who have a life-limiting illness. The nonprofit organization, which began granting wishes in 2005, has granted 54 wishes thus far and has more in the works, according to its website (www. Bass says the North Carolina chapter of Unity is still in the early planning stages.


“The first thing we have to do is find someone to grant a wish for,” she says. “We’re also trying to get together a bike ride and some other fundraising activities. Once I saw how great Unity was – and how hard it was to find somebody like them – I just thought we needed something like that here.” | 888-3759



Lazy husband needs tough love to grow up Dear Y.L.: Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to stop worrying about your husband and start thinking about the example he is setting for your son. Do you want him to grow up thinking your household is normal? ADVICE Speaking woman to woman, since nothing Dear else has worked it is Abby time to try â&#x20AC;&#x153;tough love.â&#x20AC;? â&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  Your husband will not be homeless â&#x20AC;&#x201C; he can stay with his parents until he decides he wants to act like a responsible spouse, finds a job and stops gambling his money away. If he straightens up, you can reconcile. Marriage is supposed to be a working partnership, and from where I sit you have pulled the entire load long enough. Dear Abby: My fiancee, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mandy,â&#x20AC;? and I decided to buy a home. (We moved in together last August.) Mandy didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t qualify to be on the loan, so it is in my name. No matter what I



Sunday, August 29, 2010 CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Lauren Collins, 24; Lea Michele, 24; Dante Basco, 35; Carla Gugino, 39 HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Change may not be welcome but it will be necessary. This is a year of great thought and adjustment that can make your life easier emotionally, personally and professionally. Settlements that have been pending can be completed and contracts revised. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to take action. Your numbers are 3, 9, 15, 21, 27, 33, 46 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get caught in the middle of someone elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s argument. You will be blamed for meddling and might even lose a friendship. Make a judgment call and you will avoid being set up or let down by someone you have to deal with professionally. â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026; TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Join a group or take a course to learn a new skill. The more you can add to your resume, the better. You will understand exactly what is being implied, enabling you to elaborate in a positive and productive manner. â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026; GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Look inward and you will find the answers you are looking for. As long as you keep thinking that everyone else has the answers, you will be no closer to finding your way. Recognize and understand who you are and what you require in life. â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026; CANCER (June 21-July 22): Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t limit what you can do because you are indecisive. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s better to at least try moving forward instead of sitting still, letting life pass you by. Make choices conducive to satisfaction, functionality and productivity. â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026; LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Get involved in a new pastime or take on a creative project. You will be introduced to a multitude of people who will challenge you in a positive manner.

Complete unfinished domestic projects so you can take on something new and exciting. â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026; LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allow anyone to push you aside when you have the right to step into the spotlight and share your thoughts and intentions. You cannot always be the one trying to keep the peace. You have plenty to contribute so stand up and be counted. â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026; SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Make alterations at home. An opportunity will develop if you try something different. What you discover will be a hidden talent that can be added to your resume. Share your thoughts with someone you respect. â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026; SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give too much information away or it will be used against you. Your position at home and at work will take a positive turn if you do the best you can personally and professionally. Someone you love will be receptive to your advances. â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026; CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Not everyone will be happy with your plans. Be careful while traveling and limit the amount of information you share with others. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have trouble sticking to the rules. Home is where you can do your best work. â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026; AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Get your personal paperwork in order and make plans to change some of the conditions in which you have been living. Say no to anyone trying to talk you into a backwards move. Focus on the here and now. â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026; PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go wrong if you are true to your beliefs and you are practical in the way you apply what you know. A relationship can develop between you and someone you have worked with in the past. â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026; ONE STAR: Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best to avoid conflicts; work behind the scenes or read a good book. Two stars: You can accomplish but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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.

Dear â&#x20AC;&#x153;In Deedâ&#x20AC;?: Listen to your gut, because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guiding you in the right direction. A house is one of the biggest investments you will ever make. Putting Mandyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name on the deed will not magically fix the shaky foundation of this relationship. You may love her, but please continue to think rationally. It appears she is trying to emotionally blackmail you. Before entering into

ANY contract with Mandy (or anyone else, for that matter), talk to your lawyer. Dear Abby: I recently reconnected with a friend on Facebook whom I hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen in 40 years. The photo she posted is from high school. Usually thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a reason for that, but after meeting her again, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still as pretty as I remembered â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but she looks like sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s frozen in the 1960s. She desperately needs a â&#x20AC;&#x153;makeover.â&#x20AC;? How can I politely help my friend update her look with a new hairdo and more flattering makeup? (One of my daughters is a stylist and the other is an aesthetician.) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Still Smitten in Kansas Dear Still Smitten: Introduce her to your daughters, let nature take its course and the inevitable will happen. 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 www. or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

To improve our schools, parents must get involved Q

uestion: What can we as parents do to improve public schools in our area? Dr. Dobson: Most educators know that parental involvement is absolutely critical to what public schools are trying to do. Others (fortunately not the majority) see themselves as the professionals and resent parental interference. We should never accede to that idea. Parents are ultimately responsible for the education of their kids, and they should not surrender that authority. Educators are their employees, paid with tax dollars, and are accountable to the school-board members whom parents elect. The best schools are those with the greatest parental involvement and support. With that understanding, let me urge you to visit your childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s school to answer questions of interest to you. Does the staff understand the necessity for structure, respect and discipline in the classroom? If so, why donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you call your childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s teacher and the principal and express your appreciation to them. They could use a pat on the back. Tell them you stand ready to assist in carrying out their important mission. If your school system is not so oriented, get involved to help turn the tide. Meet with parent groups. Join the PTA. Review the textbooks. Work for the election of school-board members who believe in traditional values and academic excellence. Let me say it again: Schools function best when the time-

do, she says she feels like the house wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be â&#x20AC;&#x153;oursâ&#x20AC;? until I put her name on the deed. Abby, a week hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t gone by that we havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t argued about this to the point of not speaking to each other. I want to marry Mandy, but I would like us to reach a point that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re able to get along first. She says we wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be able to do that if I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put her name on the deed. Am I wrong to want to be more comfortable in the relationship before doing that? If something happened and we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get married sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have as much right to the house as I do â&#x20AC;&#x201C; without having paid any money toward it. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153;In Deedâ&#x20AC;? in Atlanta

honored principle of local control â&#x20AC;&#x201C; by parents â&#x20AC;&#x201C; prevails. I believe it is making a comeback!

Question: Schools â&#x2013; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  are asked to accomplish many things on behalf of our kids today. They are even expected to teach them how to have sex without spreading disease. What part of the curriculum would you give the greatest priority? Dr. James Dobson

Dr. Dobson: Schools that try to do everything may wind up doing very little. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why I believe we should give priority to the academic fundamentals â&#x20AC;&#x201C; what used to be called â&#x20AC;&#x153;readinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, writinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and â&#x20AC;&#x2122;rithmetic.â&#x20AC;? Of those three, the most important is basic literacy. An appalling number of students graduating from high school canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even read the employment page of the newspaper or comprehend an elementary book. Every one of those young men and women will suffer years of pain and embarrassment because of our failure. That misery starts at a very young age. A tenth-grade boy was once referred to me because he was dropping out of school. I asked why he was quitting, and he said with great passion, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been miserable since first grade. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve felt embarrassed and stupid every year.


Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had to stand up and read, but I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even understand a second grade book. You people have had your last laugh at me. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m getting out.â&#x20AC;? I told him I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t blame him for the way he felt; his suffering was our responsibility. Teaching children to read should be â&#x20AC;&#x153;Job Oneâ&#x20AC;? for educators. Giving boys and girls that basic skill is the foundation on which other learning is built. Unfortunately, millions of young people are still functionally illiterate after completing twelve years of schooling and receiving high school diplomas. There is no excuse for this failure. Research shows that every student, with very few exceptions, can be taught to read if the task is approached creatively and individually. Admittedly, some canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t learn in group settings because their minds wander and they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ask questions

as readily. They require one-on-one instruction from trained reading specialists. It is expensive for schools to support these remedial teachers, but no expenditure would be more helpful. Special techniques, teaching machines and behavior-modification techniques can work in individual cases. Whatever is required, we must provide it. Furthermore, the sooner this help can be given, the better for the emotional and academic well-being of the child. By the fourth or fifth grades, he or she has already suffered the humiliation of reading failure. DR.

ear Abby: I am a 40-year-old woman who feels like a single mother. My husband is lazy, has a negative attitude and hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t held a job in four years. I provide everything in our marriage â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the money, the education for our 8-yearold son, plus I do all the housework, etc. My husband graduated from a famous university with a bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree. I have a masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree and am now studying for my doctorate. When my husband had a job he would give his money to his parents or spend it on lottery tickets. His parents have more money than mine do. To me, family is like a bank account into which you must deposit your love, your money and your responsibility. Unfortunately, my husband is always spending â&#x20AC;&#x201C; never saving. There is no love between us. I think about divorce but worry that my husband will have no house to live in. Maybe I am being too kind. What words of advice do you have for me? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Y.L. in Beijing, China



Puppy-mill dogs aren’t lost causes D

ear Dr. Fox: I have a little Yorkie who is 10 years old. She is a former puppy-mill dog whom my husband and I adopted last June. She is perfect in every way, and we want to give her the best life possible. But we were wondering if what we feed her is appropriate. We feed her Science Diet each day, but we also give her two thin slices of turkey bacon each morning when we have breakfast. She absolutely lives for this. We mix it in with her Science Diet nuggets. Is it OK to give her turkey bacon on a regular basis? Are we doing something we should avoid? We adopted another puppy-mill dog a few years ago. She was also 10 years old, and we were able to give her three happy years before losing her. She was perfect in every way, as well; but I wouldn’t recommend a puppy-mill dog for just anyone, because they require a lot of time, love and attention – they cannot do anything and they must be taught everything. But what a joy it is to see them climb up stairs or jump on a sofa for the first time. Imagine a dog sitting in a cage for 10 years, and imagine all the things they don’t have the opportunity to learn. Someone once asked me what I expected to get from a dog “like that.” My response: “I don’t expect to get anything. I hope only to give.” Many puppy-mill dogs have had little human contact. It took both of our dogs a few months to take a treat from our hands, but the wait was well worth it. – K.S., St. Louis, Mo. Dear K.S.: I hope your letter will be read by many and help put an end to the government’s (U.S. Department of Agriculture) “regulated” commercial puppy-breeding industry. Puppy mills are an abomination. They are a disgusting and disgraceful reflection of our culture and our spiritual decline as a civilization. I would urge you to transition your dog onto a home-prepared diet, as per my recipe on my website. Also on the website, you will find many good brands of dog food – from frozen to canned and dry – that may be best for a small dog with such a stressful and physically/psychologically damaging past. A little turkey bacon is OK as a treat, but it would be best to get away from all processed meats. There are some excellent organic and freeze-dried salmon and other meat treats, additive-free, such as PetGuard and Stella & Chewy’s, that would be better for your dog. In the long run, especially for an older dog

whose health may need attention – teeth, gums and kidneys in particular – fresh foods would be best. Dear Dr. Fox: Our 8-year-old, 10-pound ANIMAL mini-dachshund receives several vaccines each DOCTOR year: • Bordetella booster Dr. Michael • DA2PP booster Fox • Heartworm/Borrelia/ ■■■ E. canis • Lyme-disease booster • Rabies canine booster (every three years) Are all of these vaccines necessary on a yearly basis? Are the doses adjusted according to the weight of the dog? I ask because our dog gets very ill for up to three days after receiving these vaccines. He won’t move, he won’t eat (or must be coaxed to eat) and is very sore. He has the same reaction every year, and I wonder if the pain is worth it. One last question: Do we really need to apply Frontline on a monthly basis for flea/tick prevention? – J.K., Laurel, Md. Dear J.K.: Dogs who have received the “core” vaccinations to protect them against canine distemper, canine hepatitis and parvovirus are good for at least three years, and are probably protected for the rest of their lives. The vet can run blood tests to confirm this – a much safer protocol than simply revaccinating. Your old dog is being overvaccinated. The bordetella-disease booster is only needed if your dog is going to soon stay at a boarding kennel. The Lymedisease vaccine, which may not give any protection, is only justified if your dog gets exposed to ticks and you can’t check your dog daily and remove any you find during the season. Vaccine doses are regrettably and inexplicably not adjusted to a dog’s size or body weight. Check my book “Dog Body, Dog Mind” or go to my website for flea-control measures. Frontline and similar products should only be used as a last resort when fleas are out of control.

Unity, which is based in Vanderbilt, Pa., organized a ceremony – wedding chapel, bridal gown, photography package, wedding cake, flowers, reception – in just over a week. “They were awesome,” Bass says of Unity. “It was just a gorgeous ceremony, and Michelle was a radiant bride. And it kept her mind off of chemo for a while.” Causey couldn’t believe how quickly all the plans came together. “Kim called and said, ‘Do you still want to have that commitment ceremony?’ and I said, ‘Yeah,’” she recalls. “She said, ‘Well, how does Saturday the 21st at 12:30 sound?’ I said, ‘Huh?’ It all happened so quick that it kind of blew my mind, but I’m so happy it took place.” The ceremony was provided by The Lily Barn, an outdoor wedding facility affiliated with the Heartland Little River Wedding Chapel in Townsend, Tenn., a couple of hours from Canton. All of the services – from the facility itself to the photographer, wedding cake, flowers and catering – were donated.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) – There’s a new attraction expected soon on Philadelphia’s waterfront: a 260-foot paddlewheel riverboat replica. The newly dubbed Philadelphia Belle arrived at Penn’s Landing on Tuesday amid fanfare that included a Mummers string band and a Ben Franklin impersonator. A group of investors led by Norfolk, Va.-based CI Travel bought the steamship three months ago and chose Philadelphia as the spot where they wanted to make it a tourist attraction. The ship is expected to open for dinner cruises and entertainment this fall. The ship formerly was named the Mississippi Belle II. It just completed the 3,200-mile journey from its former home on the Mississippi River and will get final renovations in Philadelphia. Investors group vice president Tom D’Amato says the investors chose Philadelphia because of the potential of the city’s waterfront.

Exploring Ecuador Even without the Galapagos Islands, you can find adventure BY ALICIA CHANG ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER


UAYAQUIL, Ecuador – No offense against the Galapagos Islands. Home to giant tortoises, blue-footed boobies, marine iguanas and other exotic creatures, the archipelago off Ecuador’s coast ranks for me – and many other travelers – among the top places to visit before I die. Yet with only two weeks to spend in Ecuador, we drew up an itinerary that bypassed the famous islands in favor of a whirlwind mainland trek that would take me and my husband from the mountains to the rainforest to the southern highlands and finally, the Pacific coast. Skip the chance to see Lonesome George? Are we crazy? Was there even enough to see and do in a country the size of Colorado? Ecuador may be one of the smallest South American countries, but its outsized natural and cultural wonders are unparalleled. Two weeks is just enough time to taste the Andean nation’s offerings and still be hungry for more. While Charles Darwin may have been enamored with the Galapagos, Ecuador offers far more. We ended up with an itinerary that took us to five very different places – Quito, the capital; a jungle lodge; the colonial city of Cuenca; the surf town of Montanita; and the country’s largest city, Guayaquil. We planned and booked our trip the hard way – on our own, using guidebooks, Internet reviews and word-of-mouth from friends who once lived there – and without the help of a travel agent or organized tour. The one exception was in Guaya-



QUITO: YACHANA LODGE: Rates: $210 per person per night for a cabin in the main lodge; $100 per person per night for a bunk with shared bathrooms. Price includes personal guide, canoe ride, meals and rubber boots. Airfare to Coca not included. CUENCA: MONTANITA: GUAYAQUIL: quil where I have extended family who were eager to show us around. Sometimes we winged it, showing up at a hotel without a reservation, and we used a variety of transportation – including planes, boats and buses – to travel from region to region. Our only requirement was that we experience the different Ecuadorean climes in one trip in an effort to sample the country’s diversity. Our Galapagos-free journey began in Quito, ringed by dramatic volcanic peaks and boasting a revitalized Old Town, a historic center of lively plazas, soaring churches and colonial architecture where we spent most of our time. Several mornings, we sat on a bench in the Plaza Grande, the main square, and watched couples strolling hand-in-hand, men in business suits breezing by, indigenous women selling their wares and shoeshine boys looking to make a few quarters. We stood in line for an hour to tour the Palacio del Gobierno – the Presidential Palace flanked by two modelesque uniformed guards – where we got a peek at the grandiose dining hall, the room where the president powwows with his cabinet ministers and a space filled with portraits of past Ecuadorean presidents.

For a bird-eye’s view of the city, we hopped on the Teleferiqo, a gondola ride that takes passengers up the flanks of Pichincha volcano. Once at the top some 13,400 feet high, we climbed the trail to the volcano, but did not summit because of clouds and mist that obscured the view. We soon traded the Andes altitude for the Amazon jungle, flying into the oil town of Coca. From there, we boarded a motorized canoe for a 21⁄2-hour trip up the Napo River to the Yachana Lodge, one of several ecolodges overlooking the Amazon River tributary. During a night hike and day trek into the rainforest, we encountered monkeys, toucans, bats, lizards and countless insects. We got our wildlife fix – even if it wasn’t the Galapagos kind. Sand flies and other biting insects were annoying, but at least we did not have to worry about yellow fever or malaria (they’re not present in the lodge vicinity). After hiking, we visited a medicine man and tested our blowgun skills using a stuffed parrot as a target (I was 1-for-3; my husband 3-for-3.) On our last night in the jungle, we and other guests were invited to an end-of-year party thrown by the teachers. With a single lamp lighting the

volleyball court-turneddance floor, throngs gyrated to Spanish and American pop songs. From the rainforest, we flew south to the quaint colonial city of Cuenca known for its cobblestone streets and artsy feel. Our timing wasn’t perfect since our only full day fell on a Sunday – a day when most museums and stores are closed. We hit what we could, including the El Sagrario – the old cathedral turned religious museum – and the Museo de Arte Moderno (Modern Art Museum.) We spent part of the afternoon ambling the banks of the Tomebamba River and admiring the colonial houses that seemed to hang precariously over it, and passed some time on the steps of the neo-gothic Catedral de la Inmaculada Concepcion – the newer of two cathedrals in the main plaza. Time to leave quaintness behind. We barreled west by bus to the sprawling seaport of Guayaquil, a jumping off point to the Galapagos. Instead, we took a three-hour bus ride up the Pacific coast past sleepy fishing villages to the surf town of Montanita. High season here is De-

cember to May, so it was relatively quiet. But the warm water and rideable waves drew swimmers and surfers despite the drizzly weather. A surfer back home in California, my husband got to try a board made of balsa wood – a material widely found in Ecuador. We circled back to Guayaquil after a brief beach stay. Ecuador’s largest city has undergone a facelift in the past decade, shedding much of its rough-and-tumble image. Its refurbished waterfront boardwalk – known as the Malecon – is pedestrian-friendly and attracts locals and tourists alike. North of the Malecon is the bohemian Las Penas,

Guayaquil’s oldest neighborhood housing art galleries and restored homes. We climbed the winding staircase – more than 400 steps – to the lighthouse where we were rewarded with stunning city views. Guayaquil was the last stop in a packed two-week sojourn through Ecuador. Even after visiting five distinct places, there was still a lot left to experience: A spine-tingling bus ride down the Avenue of the Volcanoes; driving the length of the Ruta del Sol – Ecuador’s version of the Pacific Coast Highway – and camping in the national parks. And that’s just on the mainland. The Galapagos is a separate story.

Contact CMS for Medicare card security concerns


To protect identity, Social Security advises us not to carry the Social Security card. But, Medicare cards must be carried to obtain medical services, and they display the full Social Security number (SSN). What is being done to prevent the theft of SSNs from Medicare cards? A. The potential for misuse of SSNs which could result from the need for Medicare recipients to carry their Medicare cards with them is a valid concern. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is the federal agency responsible for the Medicare program.



Since CMS has jurisdiction over the format of Medicare cards, you may wish to refer your inquiry to that agency for consideration: Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, 7500 Security Blvd., Baltimore, MD 21244-1850. You can also reach CMS on the internet at Q. Will my eligibility for the Extra Help with Medicare prescription drug plan costs be reviewed and, if so, how often?

Psoriasis can be more than skin deep D

ear Dr. Donohue: Your article on arthritis was very interesting, but you did not explain about the arthritis that comes with psoriasis. I have it, and I know of two other people who have it. We don’t understand it at all. Please explain. – B.E. Autoimmunity is the explanation for many illnesses, including both skin and joint psoriasis. “Autoimmunity” indicates that the immune system – our protection against germ invasion and other harmful attacks – for reasons not yet understood, turns against our own bodies; in this case, it’s the skin and joints. The immune system targets joints in as many as 7 percent of those who suffer from skin psoriasis. That’s a considerable number of people when you consider that as many as 3 percent of the entire population suffers from skin psoriasis. Skin psoriasis precedes joint psoriasis most of the time, but instances occur when both occur simultaneously or when joint involvement appears before any skin manifestations. The fact that skin and joint psoriasis run in some families also points to a gene influence on these conditions. Any joint can be affected. The topmost finger joint, the one below the fingernail, is frequently targeted. Back, neck, knees, you name it – psoriasis can strike it. Like all arthritic joints, psoriatic arthritic joints are swollen, red, tender and stiff. The severity of joint involvement doesn’t always mirror skin involvement, but it does correspond to nail changes. Nails have small pits, become loosened from their attachment to underlying skin, often turn yellow and crumble. Treatment of psoriatic arthritis depends on how bad the arthritis is. For mild to moderate cases, NSAIDS do a good job. They include the familiar Aleve, Advil, Motrin and many others. For more severe involvement, doctors prescribe drugs like methotrexate. And for severe arthritis,

Dear Dr. Donohue: What elevates a person’s white blood cell count? What can a person do about it? Mine has been high for a while. – B.L. ■■■

White blood cells are the body’s warriors. They fight germs and perform other tasks to protect the body from infection. The normal white blood cell count is 5,000 to 10,000. Infections, inflammation, trauma, some noninfectious illnesses, leukemia and stress (including emotional stress) raise the count. So do dehydration and cortisone medicines. If no illnesses are found in a person with a slightly higher than normal count, it’s not unusual to ignore the rise. If suspicions of hidden illness are high, then further testing has to be done – like a bone marrow test. A person can do nothing on his own to lower the count. Dear Dr. Donohue: What is Proteus mirabilis, and how does it affect a person? And how is it treated? – P.P. Proteus mirabilis is the name of a bacterium, a germ. It’s often implicated in urinary tract infections, but it can cause infections elsewhere, too. Antibiotics eliminate it. Dear Dr. Donohue: Does shaving the hair on your legs make it grow back thicker and coarser? I shave my legs. – M.J. In a word, no. DR. DONOHUE regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

They thought they would ride out Hurricane Katrina, just as they had huddled in hallways and closets through Hurricane Camille 36 years earlier. But Hurricane Katrina was no Camille. No, Katrina packed a storm surge that washed six miles inland in many areas, the National Hurricane Center concluded, and up to 12 miles inland along bays and rivers. Coast residents dug out so they could dig back in and rebuild, as they always did, as they always will. They could not foresee an economic recession that combined with soaring property insurance rates to stifle recovery. They had no forewarning of personal losses or hardships to come. No, back in the summer heat of 2005, Coast residents faced ruin with faith. Each has a story to tell of how they survived, how they rebuilt, how they are moving on around Wave-

land, the epicenter of Katrina’s third landfall. Longo, the mayor, was just another resident fighting to survive. He had undergone knee-replacement surgery four days earlier. The tide tore off his soft cast, swept away his crutches and walker. He had no time to tend to the knee. His town lay in tatters. Today, the 52-year-old shuffles like a centenarian through the temporary offices city officials occupy in a strip shopping center off U.S. 90. Longo has moved six times, and relocated his city office four times, in the last five years. His family is finally settled back in their house, but a town center is just now rising from the ground on Coleman Avenue. “I’d rather not think back to the way it was five years ago, or even three years ago,” Longo said. “But there’s an awful lot that has been done. There’s no road map for what it takes to rebuild a city — literally from under the ground up.” He said 95 percent of homes and 100 percent of businesses were substantially damaged or destroyed. “To say that it’s been a tough recovery is an understatement,” he said. Still, he was able to celebrate on a recent Thursday afternoon. He climbed into his truck at 5 p.m. for a ribbon-cutting at a new business, Ever After Formals off U.S. 90. A ribbon-cutting expert, he showed owner Mayvalan Hudson how to work the oversized scissors. Residents have been slow to come back. Waveland’s population, he said,


Gary Clark from Pennsylvania preps a house as volunteers from around the country came to rebuild 50 homes in five days last week during the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina in the Gentilly neighborhood of New Orleans. Rebuilding Together, a national non-profit, has already rebuilt more than 750 homes in the Gulf Coast since 2005. is still down 30 percent. The shoreline Waveland shares with Bay St. Louis is particularly barren. One of those empty lots belongs to Kelvin and Emily Schulz, former owners of Big E’s, a seafood market and beach store named for Emily Schulz. The business and secondfloor home overlooked the Bay of St. Louis. Emily Schulz worked as a nurse in Biloxi through the hurricane. Her family swam from the building as it disintegrated around them. Her mother, 80-yearold Jane Mollere, did not make it. She refused to budge from her recliner. “Kelvin,” she said, “I’m too old for this.” One of the family dogs stayed by her side and perished as well. Another dog, Schulz said, suf-

fers from post-traumatic stress. The Schulzes, about to celebrate their 31st wedding anniversary, are of two minds about returning to the waterfront. Like so many couples, one longs to go back but the other wants no part of it. They are currently living in Diamondhead. Kelvin Schulz misses the beach. He misses the apartment above his business and the quaint, quirky atmosphere that is Bay St. Louis. He wants to rebuild there. “Eventually,” he said, “we’ll make a compromise.” Bud and Louise Ray finally decided to rebuild, sort of. The Long Beach couple first endured a protracted fight with their insurance company. They were among hundreds who sued insurance com-


panies. The Rays spent more than $15,000 of their own money on expert reports, and also documented that their insurance company’s expert analysis had been altered, minimizing wind damage their policy covered. They were finally able to settle their claim on confidential terms. Bud Ray wonders how many people just accepted what their insurance companies initially offered. “That’s probably the biggest heartbreak I have for the Coast,” Ray said. “So many people had faith and confidence in their insurance companies. The poor people just got ripped off.” The state Legislature in those early post-Katrina days seemed receptive to stronger laws to protect consumers, said Ray, who attended a legislative hearing on insurance after the storm. Action failed to follow. “I don’t see anything, from a legislative or political point of view, that we’ve done to protect the public from being dragged through what they were after Katrina,” he said. “I think the insurance companies still have the same bag of tricks now that they had then.” The Rays, who own car washes and other businesses, have rebuilt their pool-house apartment on the beach. Although they are quite comfortable in their elevated perch, they also have drawings to recreate their waterfront home. “We do intend to build back,” Bud Ray said, “but now, with the economy so uncertain, we’re scared to death of turning loose of a penny.”

Country music star Faith Hill says giving back just comes naturally for the Mississippi native, and she has a message for those still recovering from Hurricane Katrina. “We are here for you still and you are not forgotten,” Hill said before headlining a free concert Tuesday evening in New Orleans that supported those still rebuilding five years later. She said the evening at the Mahalia Jackson Theater was intended to celebrate how far the Gulf Coast has come since the 2005 storm flooded New Orleans and surrounding areas of Louisiana and Mississippi. “I feel like it’s my responsibility to give back,” Hill said. “When you’ve been given so much, it’s only right that I do what I can to help, if I can.” The Dirty Dozen Brass Band opened Tuesday’s event, and about 2,200 tickets were distributed in New Orleans, Baton Rouge and Lafayette and the Mississippi cities of Biloxi and Jackson. Mona Rowe, of Perkinston, Miss., said she was glad to have the opportunity to see Hill perform. “She is just outstanding,” Rowe said. “She knows and understands what we went through and what we’re trying to do.”

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., waves to supporters at an election victory party Tuesday in Phoenix. In McCain’s toughest Republican election primary in years, he defeated former congressman J.D. Hayworth, a native of High Point.

McCain turns vulnerable label into front-runner BY JONATHAN J. COOPER ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER

GILBERT, Ariz. — The cast of “Survivor” has nothing on Sen. John McCain. Once labeled a vulnerable incumbent, the four-term Arizona Republican easily won the Arizona Republican Senate primary Tuesday against challenger J.D. Hayworth after spending some $20 million and casting his GOP opponent as a late-night infomercial huckster in a series of devastating ads. McCain will face former Tucson City Councilman Rodney Glassman, who won the Democratic primary, in the Nov. 2 general election. McCain, who turns 74 on Aug. 29, has survived the deadly 1967 explosion on the USS Forrestal, 5 1/2 years in a Vietnam POW camp after being shot down near Hanoi and skin cancer. Politically, he has persisted through the Keating Five savings and loan scandal, and two failed bids for the White House. “I have stood up and led the fight as a fiscal conservative and a leader on national defense and a strong supporter of the men and women who are fighting and sacrificing for this nation,” McCain told a woman who questioned his record at a town-hall meeting last Thursday. Long unpopular with some home-state conservatives, McCain immediately recognized the threat posed by Hayworth, a talk-radio host and former sixterm congressman from Scottsdale. And he set out to neutralize it. McCain also realized that the anti-establishment fervor could cost him his seat in the primary; it already had claimed two other senators — Republican Bob Bennett of Utah and Democrat Ar-

Unsuccessful Arizona Senate candidate J.D. Hayworth reacts to a supporter as he goes door-to-door to meet voters Monday in Phoenix. len Specter of Pennsylvania. McCain tossed aside his self-described “maverick” label and adopted a hard-line stand on immigration just a few years after working with Democrats on a path to citizenship for those in the country illegally. “Complete the danged fence,” he says in a campaign ad, three years after dismissing the effectiveness of building a fence on the U.S.-Mexico border. A series of McCain ads called Hayworth a “huckster,” showing clips of him in an infomercial telling viewers they can get free government money. It was an embarrassment for a candidate running as a fiscal conservative, and it caught Hayworth flat-footed. At first he defended it, then apologized as the story lived on for weeks. “I think McCain’s truthful. J.D. Hayworth sure isn’t. He’s a liar,” said Martha Moloney, a 72-year-old church worker from Mesa. One poll last month showed McCain with a lead of as much as 45 percentage points. “J.D. Hayworth is deader than Elvis,” said McCain spokesman Brian Rogers. Hayworth, a native of

High Point who became a congressman after moving to Arizona 20 years ago, was undaunted. He had an exhausting series of campaign events throughout Arizona, mostly in rural areas away from Phoenix. On a remote stretch of the U.S.-Mexico border, he criticized McCain for not supporting a change in the 14th Amendment of the Constitution to eliminate the automatic grant of citizenship to anyone born in the United States. “In the final analysis, it ain’t me, it’s John McCain and his record that will be held to account,” Hayworth told The Associated Press. Hayworth aides argue that McCain is vulnerable on immigration in a state that has adopted the nation’s toughest law cracking down on illegal immigrants. A Hayworth ad accused the incumbent of lying about his stand on the issue — a charge the McCain campaign denies. Despite polls showing a likely win, McCain didn’t let up. He spent $3.5 million on the race in July, most of it from the legal fund of his 2008 presidential campaign. By Aug. 4, McCain had spent $19.6 million to Hayworth’s $2.6 million.

ROCKINGHAM – Four Richmond County residents traveled with other missionaries to minister to the povertystricken country of Guyana in South America from July 22 to July 31. “This is the only English-speaking sovereign state in South America,” said Earl Rose. “We didn’t have to get any interpreters.” The group was able to minister to three orphanages, a home for abused girls, two prisons, a church and three villages. “The people there are so receptive,” Rose said. “We gave them shoes as a way

of sharing the gospel with them.” The group had 243 people accept Christ as their savior and washed 1,127 pair of feet making it possible to speak with them one on one according to Beth Puckett of Charlotte. “The first prison we visited housed about 300 men and 100 women,” said Puckett. This was her first time visiting the area. “The experience was phenomenal,” she said. The warden of the first jail they visited gave the group permission to put a Christian library in the prison. “They will build the shelves and we will provide the books,” Puckett said.


ROCKINGHAM – The Friendly Neighborhood Dental Van made its way to town Tuesday afternoon, seeing patients at Falling Creek Park. Dental van founder Dr. Greg Abrams said the program has visited this area regularly since 2004, and

there is a great need for dental services throughout the southeast corridor of the state. “Really, from Anson County to Lumberton we see that there just aren’t enough providers to meet the need,” Abrams said aboard the van. “Especially the young children; we see some of them that have to go all the way to Fayetteville. We refer pa-

tients up to 60 miles away in this area.” Doris Cox brought her great granddaughter Keiyon Thomas, a rising Hamlet Middle sixth grader, to receive dental care at Falling Creek Tuesday. She explained Thomas’s mother had a hard time getting her an appointment at a regular dental office. “I think it’s probably

the time of year,” Cox said. “It’s very difficult to get an appointment because school’s about to start back and everybody wants their children to get their teeth cleaned before they go back to school. So, she may have waited too late, but we got her an appointment here.” Thomas said she didn’t think she had any cavities.

Exhibition looks at Hendrix’s London years L

ONDON (AP) – They were both immigrants in Britain who changed the face of music – one with a harpsichord and a composer’s pen, the other with an electric guitar. George Frideric Handel and Jimi Hendrix also shared an address, living 200 years apart in adjoining 18th-century London houses. Now, 40 years after Hendrix’s death, a new exhibition about his London years brings these two unlikely neighbors together. Hendrix, who came to London as an ambitious but littleknown guitarist in 1966, was aware of his link to the musical past. He bought recordings of Handel’s “Messiah,” and obligingly gave tours of his apartment to music students

By all accounts, Hendrix enjoyed the domestic side of London life – though the appliances were not always up to his modern American standards. who knocked on the door looking for traces of the composer. “He once claimed to have seen a reflection of Handel’s face in his shaving mirror,” said Martin Wyatt, deputy director of the Handel House Museum, which is mounting an exhibition about Hendrix’s London years that opened to the public Wednesday. “Hendrix was convinced he was living in Handel’s house – but actually he was living next door.” Handel lived at 25 Brook Street – a Georgian house in the tony Mayfair area – for 36 years until his death in 1759. The museum devoted to his life uses the adjoining upstairs apartment where Hendrix lived as offices. Museum curators hope to raise money to restore the apartment to its 1960s glory and open it as a permanent Hendrix exhibition.


An orange velvet jacket and a black Westerner hat that belonged to the late U.S. musician Jimi Hendrix is displayed at the Handel House Museum, where Hendrix lived in the late 1960s, in central London’s Mayfair area. For now, members of the public will be able to visit for 12 days next month. They will have to use their imaginations to picture the small, whitewashed rooms with their utilitarian desks as they were then, decorated in garish 60s style with red carpets and turquoise velvet curtains, chocka-block with guitars, amps, rugs and knickknacks. “All the photos look really classy until you see them in color,” said the museum’s learning and events officer, Claire Parker. Handel had paid 60 pounds a year for the house, the equivalent of about 5,000 pounds ($7,700) today. Hendrix and his girlfriend Kathy Etchingham paid 30 pounds a week – a consierable sum for the 60s, equivalent to about 350 pounds a week today. By all accounts, Hendrix enjoyed the domestic side of London life – though the appliances were not always

up to his modern American standards. “When they first moved in, Hendrix was horrified to find a 1950s gas fridge, which he thought was the most old-fashioned thing he had ever seen.” Parker said. They bought an electric one, as well as a yellow Formica kitchen table. Parker said Hendrix “was quite well known in John Lewis,” the venerable London department store. “It’s this other side of him you don’t really think about – Jimi Hendrix shopping for carpets and soft furnishings.” When he wasn’t at home, Hendrix was honing his sound and building his reputation through incendiary live shows. He came to London in 1966 after being spotted by producer Chas Chandler playing in a New York bar with his band Jimmy James and the Blue Flames. He began gigging immediate-

ly – a list of his British shows in the exhibition has scores of entries, from pubs to provincial working men’s clubs to the vast Isle of Wight rock festival. In 1967, he released the acclaimed album “Are You Experienced?” and soon was touring internationally, gaining fame for his innovative, heavily distorted guitar style. “He was an absolute revelation to everyone here,” Wyatt said. “It was like an earthquake rumbling through the music scene.” “I think for Hendrix London was much more open – in America he was too white for black music and too black for white music. Here there was a burgeoning blues scene that wasn’t that categorized.” The Hendrix exhibition, which runs to Nov. 7, is a bit of a shock next to the muted gray walls, oil paintings and harpsichords of the rooms devoted to Handel’s life.

Billionaire picks LA site for museum LOS ANGELES (AP) – Billionaire Eli Broad said last week he had chosen an expanding downtown cultural district for a new museum to showcase his collection of art that includes works by Salvador Dali and Joan Miro. The developer-turned-philanthropist made his announcement minutes after a committee of state and local officials voted to let him lease county-owned land along Grand Avenue for the structure that could cost as much as $100 million. The 35,000 square feet of gallery space will feature paintings, sculptures and photos from Broad’s 2,000-piece collection, which includes works not currently on permanent public display. “There’s lots of art to go around,” Broad said after the vote by the Grand Avenue Authority. “We want to show our art to the widest possible audience.” The Broad Art Foundation will also coordinate loans of artwork to other museums from the planned venue totaling 120,000 square feet.

Among the exhibits are the Gibson Flying V guitar that Hendrix played at the Isle of Wight festival in August 1970, handwritten lyrics and a splendid orange velvet jacket and black Westerner hat. There is also a copy of Hendrix’s death certificate. He died in a London hotel on Sept. 18, 1970, aged 27. The certificate gives the archetypally rock ’n’ roll causes as “inhalation of vomit” and barbiturate intoxication. Wyatt said some of the museum’s supporters were skeptical at first about the Hendrix display. But he is struck by the similarities between the two musicians. “They were both great improvisers,” he said – Handel on harpsichord, Hendrix on guitar. He said that on the occasional past openings of Hendrix’s apartment, the guitarist’s fans have sometimes stayed to listen and learn about Handel.

Elisabeth Leopold, a member of the board of the Leopold Museum in Vienna, presents Egon Schiele’s painting “Portrait of Wally.”

Art back in Austria after ownership feud V

IENNA (AP) – A 12-year battle over the possession of a painting that was stolen from a Jewish Austrian by the Nazis came to a close Monday when the work by Austrian expressionist Egon Schiele was displayed at a Vienna museum. The oil painting was returned last weekend after the Leopold Museum agreed to pay $19 million (15 million euros) as part of the settlement to the estate of art dealer Lea Bondi Jaray, the original owner.

U.S. authorities had refused to return the painting to the Leopold Museum after it was exhibited in 1998 at the New York Museum of Modern Art because of a claim by her descendants. Bondi Jaray was forced to sell the painting, “Portrait of Wally,” at an unrealistically low price in the prelude to World War II as part of a widespread Nazi campaign that stripped Jews in Austria, Germany and later other European countries of their possessions.

“Portrait of Wally” – which pictures Valerie “Wally” Neuzil, a woman Schiele knew and used as a model – was among more than 100 works the Leopold Foundation had leant to MoMA. U.S. customs refused to let the work leave the country after Henry Bondi of Princeton, N.J., filed a claim that said his late aunt was forced to give up the painting before fleeing Vienna in 1939 to escape to London when Germany annexed Austria.


Katy Perry’s new CD is like a magical slot machine: Select any song and you’ll hear a hit. “Teenage Dream” (Capitol Records), the singer’s sophomore release, is a 12-track set that has many flavors: Thumping dance jams, groovy midtempo numbers and pop ballads that are subtle and soft – just like the cloud Perry’s nude body lays atop on the album cover. Much of the credit for the hit factory goes to the album’s producers, which includes Dr. Luke, Benny Blanco, Max Martin, Stargate, Tricky and Greg Wells. They’re hit-makers who clearly saved their best material for Perry. But another big reason for the album’s magic is Perry herself. She has a booming voice, and can out-sing pop tarts like Britney Spears and Ke$ha, whose vocals are usually whispery and weak. They usually fade into the background of the album’s beat. Per-
