Sprucing up downtown, one building at a time
BLANK CANVAS Helping downtown through art ■■■
BY VICKI KNOPFLER ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER
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.” email@example.com | 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.
SOUTHERN PINES – The Rev. William Penn Price, resident of The Penick Village in Southern Pines, N.C., died on August 4, 2010.

Stern, Rothrock have plan for â€˜revitalizationâ€™ BY VICKI KNOPFLER ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER
HIGH POINT â€“ Pam Sternâ€™s plan to improve downtown, one location at a time, starts with a building that most recently housed a hot tub business. The building doesnâ€™t display a street number, but it is two doors north of what recently was Perkinsonâ€™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 donâ€™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.

For $150 each, Rothrock will paint specific faces onto the figures. For a little more, $250, Rothrock will create a scene in the street levels windows and/or paint a full body. Names of people depicted in the figures can be listed on a plaque on the street level. Stern estimates the project will cost $1,000$2,000, and thatâ€™s mostly for supplies.

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) â€“ 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 Talibanâ€™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 â€“ 15 at Salerno and six at Chapman â€“ 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) â€“ 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 â€“ 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.

Barack Obama left no doubt Saturday in his weekly radio address that the U.S. is sticking to its promise to pull out of Iraq despite the uptick in violence. In a statement to staterun television, Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki said Iraqi intelligence indicated an al-Qaida front group and members of Saddam Hussein’s outlawed Baath party are collaborating to launch attacks “to create fear and chaos and kill more innocents.”

Tangible signs of life arrive at 9/11 memorial
Man dies on flight to Milwaukee DENVER â€“ A man from New York died of an apparent heart attack on an AirTran Airways flight from Las Vegas to Milwaukee early Saturday, forcing the plane into an emergency landing at Denver International Airport. DIA airport spokeswoman Laura Coale says flight 776 was diverted to Denver and was met at the gate by an ambulance at about 2:50 a.m. The Denver Medical Examinerâ€™s office says 64-year-old Stephen Enves, of Elmhurst, N.Y., was traveling with his wife when he died. An autopsy is planned. The airplane continued its flight to Milwaukee at about 6:30 a.m.
Reward offered for deputy killing suspect FREDONIA, Ariz. â€“ 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 sheriffâ€™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. Harris was shot Thursday while chasing Curley. Curley was suspected of trying to burglarize Fredonia High School and holding a janitor at gunpoint on Wednesday night.
A grove of 16 swamp white oaks is planted at the National September 11 Memorial, Saturday, in New York.
NEW YORK (AP) â€“ 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. â€œWhen people come up to the pools and see the names and be under this canopy, this forest, it will be a very peaceful environment,â€? he said. The trees come from New York, Pennsylvania and Washington, D.C. â€“ the places where the attacks hit.
Danielle may bring dangerous currents to US MIAMI (AP) â€“ Hurricane Danielle remains far out over the Atlantic, but the Category 2 storm is still expected to bring dangerous rip currents to the U.S. East Coast. Danielleâ€™s maximum sustained winds were near 110 mph on Saturday.
Medicare program to help smokers quit WASHINGTON â€“ Theyâ€™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 whoâ€™s trying to kick the habit. Dr. Barry Straube, Medicareâ€™s chief medical officer, says itâ€™s never too late to quit, even for lifelong smokers. â€œThe elderly can respond to smoking cessation counseling even if they have been smoking for 30 years or more,â€? 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) â€“ 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 Kingâ€™s message. Civil rights leaders who accused the group of hijacking Kingâ€™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 â€œRestoring Honorâ€? 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 werenâ€™t enough. â€œWe must restore America and restore her honor,â€? said the former Alaska governor, echoing the name of the rally, â€œRestoring Honor.â€? 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) â€“ Smoke wafting from a Cadillac Escalade on the Las Vegas Strip ignited Paris Hiltonâ€™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 socialiteâ€™s purse. Itâ€™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 â€œfollowed the vapor trail and the odor of marijuana to the Escalade,â€? police Sgt. John Sheahan said. Hilton asked to go into the Wynn resort for privacy, Sheahan said. â€œMiss Hilton pulled out a tube of lip balm,â€? Sheahan said. â€œAt the same time ... a bindle of cocaine in a plastic bag came out of her purseâ€? in plain view of police in the room.

HIGH POINT HEROES
The High Point Heroes inductees are: • Lucius Benjamin “Luke” Appling (April 2, 1907-Jan. 3, 1991) Appling played shortstop for the Chicago White Sox from 1930 to 1950. He was inducted into the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame in 1964. He batted .300 or better for nine straight seasons and was a seventime All-Star. He was called “Old Aches and Pains” by teammates for constant complaints. Once, when owners refused to provide baseballs for autographs, he fouled 10 pitches in a row into the stands. He was a minor league manager of the year in 1952 and coached for five teams in the majors. He hit a home run at age 75 in an Old-Timers’ Game at RFK Stadium. • Maxwell Reid “Max” Thurman (Feb. 18, 1931-Dec. 1, 1995) Thurman was a U.S. Army fourstar general and vice chief of staff, the Army’s second-highest post. He developed the “Be All That You Can Be” recruiting campaign in 1979, boosting the Army’s image and raising standards. At the request of President George H.W. Bush, he delayed his retirement in 1989 to plan and execute Operation Just Cause, invading Panama and overthrowing dictator Manuel Noriega and securing the Panama Canal. Thurman’s decorations include the Legion of Merit and the Bronze Star with a “V.” • Harry Webb “Harry” Williamson (July 11, 1913-April 8, 2000) Williamson was North Carolina’s first Olympian. He won 6th place in the 800-meter race at the 1936 Olympic Games held in Berlin. Also in 1936, he was a member of the world record 4 x 800-meter relay team in London, England. He was mentored at UNC-Chapel Hill by legendary coach Robert Fetzer, who said Williamson “swallowed the bait” when told to develop his own imagination, vision and courage. He’s a member of the N.C. 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. Big demand for the cars in the 1920s included orders from New Orleans and Detroit. The originals are still in operation. The company switched to school buses 1936, renaming the company Thomas Built Buses and becoming the world’s largest school bus manufacturer. Features such as innovative, all-steel construction and outward-swinging safety door secured its future. Thomas received a U.S. Army citation in World War II.

• 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. He chose landlocked High Point to found Hatteras Yacht because of its skilled furniture craftsmen. A 41-foot boat, “Knit Wits,” successfully launched in 1960. As a teenager, he was inspired by Lindbergh to become a pilot. By 21, he was the U.S. Army Air Corps’ youngest instructor and later was president of Slane Hosiery Mills. • Myrtle Furr Hayworth “Myrtle” Barthmaier (March 15, 1891-Dec. 17, 1980) She was a mother of six who, upon the premature death of her husband Charles Hayworth in 1928, kept Hayworth Industries and its mainstay, Alma Desk, alive during the Great Depression.
